Dog attacks owner


By TREVOR SHIRLEY
WWSB 7

The family of a Venice
woman mauled by her Ameri-
can bulldog Monday night
said she is in stable condition
at Blake Medical Center in
Bradenton.
Authorities say 30-year-old
Sarah Jane Ziebro suffered a
seizure at her home Monday
night. They say it was when
she fell to the floor that her
dog, named Sam, attacked
her.
Her injuries were severe
enough that she was airlifted
to Blake after the attack
happened. That's where she's
recovering as the dog that
attacked her sits in quarantine
at Sarasota County Animal
Services, with its future in
question.
Around 10 p.m., Ziebro's
mother placed a frantic 911
call:
Operator: "Tell me what
you're seeing."
Caller: "I don't know. I just
came in and the house is
covered in blood and her face
is all ripped off ... and the dog
attacked her."
That animal, an American
bulldog, was taken by animal
services shortly after the
attack and will be quarantined
for 10 days.
Authorities say Ziebro had
just suffered a seizure and
fallen to the floor at her home
when the dog attacked.

The dog accused of attacking its owner's face is taken into custody by Sara-
sota County Animal Services Monday night.


Caller: "Please send the
ambulance right away, oh my
God, her face is cut open."
The victim's mother, Joyce
Ziebro, can be heard on the
call yelling at the dog to get
back in its cage: "Sam, Sam,
get back in your house. Sam,
Sam, get back in your house."
While the dog is currently
impounded, officials say they
will work with the family to
determine whether the family
wants to keep the dog, or turn
it over to the county.
"If they do decide to
relinquish the animal involved
in the attack, it will be
euthanized," said Wendy Rose,
Sarasota County Sheriff's
spokesperson. "Because it was
involved in an attack, we can't


in good faith adopt it out to
another family."
A second dog was also
removed from the home,
although authorities say it
had nothing to do with the
attack.
"The second animal that
was in the house was just
taken into our custody for
safekeeping while they're
dealing with this situation,"
said Rose.
Officials say neither animal
has any history of problems or
violence.
According to reports, the
victim's mother told police
that she did not think her
daughter would want the dog
back, but that she was not
sure.


Bypass, connector move forward


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

The yearlong battle to gain
approval to widen U.S. 41
Venice Bypass from four to six
lanes was decided Monday.
A regional planning board
responsible for divvying up
state and federal transporta-
tion dollars agreed not only to
place the project into its work
plan, but to expedite it.
The Sarasota/Manatee Met-
ropolitan Planning Organiza-
tion voted 9-5 to use $16 mil-
lion in multimodal funding
toward the $41 million cost
of the final phase, and placed
the project into a five-year
time frame for completion,
moving the project up by five
years, according to Venice City
Council Member Jim Bennett,
who represents the city on the
MPO.
Bennett said the entire
project should be completed
by 2020.
Funding the project earlier
is expected to save $1.5 mil-
lion annually in inflation and
other costs, he said.
"In addition, the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion wants to get it done even
earlier than 2020," Bennett
said.
"Of course, there was
rear-guard action to have that
money reprioritized away
from that project and onto

Approval was given Monday for widening the rest of the Venice Bypass to
six lanes, with the project to be completed by 2020.


the roundabout program in
Sarasota," Bennett added, but
it failed.
It was good news for Venice
City Council members, who
applauded both Bennett's
work and County Commis-
sioner Christina Robinson for
her performance on Monday.
Robinson sat in for MPO
member Nora Patterson.
"She had a gorgeous state-
ment and put a ribbon on it
and that was helpful in that
vote," Bennett said of Robin-
son's performance.
Five Venice council mem-
bers attended the meeting in
a show of support, including
Mayor John Holic, who agreed


Robinson's performance was
crucial.
"She did a totally outstand-
ing job," Holic said, "more
outstanding than any of the
other commissioners could
(have done)."
"Everybody benefits by
this," said City Manager Ed
Lavallee. "This is a major
improvement project."
He said some of the major
features approved will be bus
cutouts and bicycle lanes,
adding to the multimodal
vision to make this main
north-south roadway even
more user-friendly.

BYPASS 7


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Venice City Manager Ed
Lavallee introduced his first
budget on Tuesday, recom-
mending city council adopt
the rollback rate of 2.9653 mills
to fund the fiscal year 2012-13
budget.
He also requested $300,000
from reserves for a 2 percent
salary bonus for staff and other
expenses.
The draft budget presented
this week was based on coun-
cil direction not to raises taxes.
Technically, the rollback rate
increases the millage rate just
enough to bring in the same
level of tax revenue as in the
prior year.
Council also directed Laval-
lee not to cut any staff. The
draft budget has a net loss of
four vacant positions. No one
would lose a job.
Lavallee suggested using
grants to fund three police
positions, part-time employ-
ees to assist permanent staff
during the busy season in the
public works department and
civilian part-time employees
to patrol for parking violations

So far, it appears diners will
not be eating near dogs at very
many restaurants in Venice.
The city's new doggie dining
ordinance allows dogs to be
with their owners in outdoor
dining areas under certain
conditions. Before city council
passed the ordinance June 19,
it was illegal under state law
to have animals, other than
service animals, in a public
dining area.
Despite vocal support from
dog owners, few restaurants
have begun the process of
getting a permit.
"I have received a total of
three inquiries on the new
ordinance and only one appli-
cation submittal that is still in
the review process," said Roger
Clark, city planner.
Opposition from people who
say they won't eat anywhere
that dogs are present may have
caused restaurateurs to delay
becoming involved in the
program.
According to Pam Johnson,
city public liaison officer,
there are 74 permitted res-
taurants, lounges, bars, delis,
bakeries and snack cafes
within city limits. The fee
for an annual doggie dining
permit is $25.
Under the rules, at a


during the winter season to
free up police officers to patrol
the city.
Whether council will agree
to Lavallee's request to take
$300,000 out of reserves, or
adopt a slightly higher 3.091
millage rate to meet the same
goal, remains to be seen. The
current millage rate is 2.9350.
In addition to paying for
the one-time staff bonus,
other enhancements would
include restroom upgrades at
three parks, completing LED
street light conversion, com-
puter hardware and software
upgrades, and radio upgrades
for emergency response
personnel.
Two "501" public hearings
are set for 5:01 p.m. on Sept. 12
and 25. Council will hold
budget workshops before then.
The maximum allowable ad
valorem tax millage rate under
state law for the next fiscal
year is 4.8874, which council
adopted as a preliminary rate
while the budget is debated. It
will appear on TRIM taxpayer
notices, but as a ceiling it's
far higher than council will

Sample ballots for primary


being mailed this week


FROM THE SARASOTA COUNTY
SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS

Official sample ballots for the
Aug. 14 primary election are
being mailed to all registered
voters beginning, Sarasota
County Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent said.
The primary ballot includes
three universal primary con-
tests for Charter Review Board
Districts 1, 3 and 4. Universal
primary contests will appear
on all (Democrat, Republican
and nonpartisan) ballots. Voters
who reside in the city of North
Port will be able to vote in races
for North Port City Commission
Seats 1, 2 and 3.
In addition, Republican bal-
lots will contain races for U.S.


senator, state attorney for the
12th Judicial Circuit, supervi-
sor of elections and Sarasota
County Commission District 5.
Ballots for Democrats will
include the U.S. Senate race.
Dent said voters may preview
their sample ballots, mark their
choices and then take the sample
ballot with them to their polling
place on election day or during
early voting, Aug. 4-11. Voters
may also view their personalized
sample ballots on the SOE web-
site at www.SarasotaVotes.com.
Click on the sample ballot link
under "News Briefs" on the home
page and follow the instructions.
Voters who have questions
may contact the Supervisor of
Elections Office at 941-861-8600.
Dent invites the public to


observe the logic and accuracy
testing of the county's voting

The testing will begin at
9 a.m. Wednesday, July 25, at
the supervisor of elections
office in the Sarasota County

Florida law requires the
supervisor of elections to con-
duct a public test of the coun-
ty's automatic tabulation equip-
ment and reporting software
prior to each election to ensure
it is operating and recording
accurately. The public logic and
accuracy testing is performed
on a random sampling of all the
tabulating equipment that will
be fielded on primary day.

PRIMARY ELECTION 2012


1-11 en '-I g I


Why are you running for this
seat?
As a lifelong resident of
Sarasota County, this is an
opportunity for me to continue
to give back to our community.
This position has the ability to
greatly influence the future of
our county through ensuring
that the quality of life we enjoy
here is protected and enhanced.

What do you hope to accom-
plish? What are the big issues
you see need tackling?
Continue to maintain a solid,
balanced county budget with-
out raising property taxes and


Why are you running for this
seat?
We need elected officials at
every level of government who
hold to the conservative, found-
ing principles of our country,
and who can articulate what
Walter Williams calls "the moral
superiority of liberty." My desire
to run is related to my desire
to see conservative principles
practiced at the county level.
That primarily means limited
government, i.e., reducing its
role to that of providing essential
services, reducing the regulatory
maze facing local businesses and
making sure county employees
see people as citizens to serve


within that, ensuring our tax
dollars are being properly spent.
Within our budget, continue to
explore creative ways to main-
tain and enhance the quality-
of-life opportunities for our citi-
zens. Within these two, ensure
that county policies allow for
diverse economic development,
with the goal being assisting our
business community in creating
a more-balanced economy in
our county. Re-establish trust
and morale in the role of county
government, both from the
citizens' perspective and staff's.

What makes you more


instead of customers, tax dollars
are wisely spent and local govem-
ment is truly "of the people, by
the people and for the people."

What do you hope to accom-
plish? What are the big issues
you see need tackling?
I hope to help Sarasota
County citizens feel that they
are being heard by their elected
officials and that issues are not
"pre-decided" before citizen in-
put of more than three minutes.
As to issues, obviously there
are still procurement problems
and issues now involving the
purchasing of so-called sensitive
lands, transfer of development

qualified for the post than
your opponent?
Experience: business, legal,
leadership and community
involvement. Sarasota County
is very diverse and unique, and
in order to fully understand that
uniqueness and the role of our
county government in our com-
munity, one must have been
involved in the various groups
and organizations that make
up our county. I have done this
over my lifetime in Sarasota
County through my personal
involvement and leadership
roles in a variety of county, city,
civic, business and nonprofit
organizations. Without this type
of extensive experience and
community commitment, one

rights, and the role of govern-
ment in economic development.

What makes you more
qualified for the post than your
opponent?
A county commissioner is
not an administrative position,
but an elected representative
of the people to make sure
that their government is run
in a way that protects their
liberty and provides the essential
services that citizens call upon
their government to provide. I am
more qualified because I am a
"grassroots" candidate put forth
by the people, who believe I will
listen to the many rather than the
few. I have a strong conviction
about the purpose and role of
government consistent with the
founding principles of our nation,


is not prepared to address the
wide range of issues that come
before our commission.

Controlled burns set


FROM SOUTHWEST
FLORIDA WATER
MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

The Southwest
Florida Water Manage-
ment District will be
conducting "controlled,
prescribed burns"
on the Deer Prairie
Creek Preserve and the
Myakka River Schewe
Tract in Sarasota
County.
Deer Prairie Creek
Preserve is located in
between Interstate 75
and U.S. 41. Approxi-
mately 622 acres of land
will be burned.
The Myakka River
Schewe Tract is located
both north and south of
Interstate 75. Approxi-
mately 507 acres of
land will be burned.
The scheduled, man-
aged burns are a part of
routine maintenance of
lands managed by the
district.
According to Land
Management Supervi-
sor Will VanGelder,
burns are conducted
to mimic natural
fire cycles under a


controlled situation.
The object is to avoid
uncontrolled wildfires
and enhance the
area's natural condi-
tions by maintaining
the ecological and
wildlife habitat values.
Prescribed burns are
only conducted when
weather conditions
allow the objectives to
be met while minimiz-
ing impacts to the
public.
Every effort will be
made to ensure that
smoke will not affect
homes or highways.
However, vehicle
operators should
exercise caution in
case smoke does lead
to reduced visibility
on the area's roads or
highways.
The district protects
approximately 449,000
acres of environmen-
tally sensitive lands
for water resource
and natural systems
protection.
For more informa-
tion, call the district
at 352-796-7211 or

Business booms despite the bust


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The devastation of
Hurricane Charley in
2004 led to the creation
of Contemporary Hear-
ing, 523 South Tamiami
Trail South, which is
celebrating its fifth
anniversary.
Despite the economic
turmoil of the past four
years, proud owners Blair
and Karen Post have
grown their customer
base to more than 650
and are hosting patients
and friends this Friday,
July 27.
"The gift I can give
back is a quality of
sound, which creates
a quality of life," said
Blair, who was raised in a
hearing-impaired family.
Studying with the
International Hearing
Society in Michigan, he
interned in Fort Myers
with Miracle Ear, began
dispensing in late 1999
and then in partnership
opened an office in Port
Charlotte in 2004.
Overnight following the

hurricane there was no
business. He was out of
work due to the devasta-
tion, and to add to the
misery Karen, who did
mortgages with SunTrust,
was also unemployed.
A colleague invited
him to work in Venice on
Aug. 15 in the Jacaranda
Plaza, and he began
dispensing. Deciding he
wanted his own business,
he and Karen opened
Contemporary Hearing
in July 2007. A multi-line


dispenser, they work with
many manufacturers,
enabling them to serve
more people and grow
the business.
"The hearing device is
the qualified statement
you are getting older, and
the hardest thing people
want to admit is getting
older," said Blair.
His patients range from
ages 9 to 103, with almost
90 percent being retired.
"At 45 you should have
a screening and definitely


by 50, while there is
still the memory of
language," said Karen, a
hearing aid specialist. "It
makes the first fitting less
difficult and the rehab
time shorter. Hearing is
about the different lan-
guages and accents, and
speech is pure energy."
Initially, most people
probably do not realize
they are having difficulty
hearing because of the
body's built-in com-
pensators. The biggest
motivator is when there
is an inconvenience or
a nuisance, said Blair,
who teaches the hearing
impaired how to listen
again.
Hearing aids have had a
stigma, but that's chang-
ing with technology. More
than 70 percent are fitted
behind the ear instead of
in the ear.
Today, enhanced tech-
nology allows the user
to do more things with
noise managers, mike
control and automatic
speech enhancements,
with less need to change
settings. When fitted, he


said, users are amazed at
how much of the world
they have been missing.
As digital sound
processors, the devices
connect to loop systems
in entertainment venues
and meeting rooms,
providing more enjoy-
ment as the device is
directly linked to the
audio system. Bluetooth
in the hearing devices
enables the user to
answer a cellphone or
watch television.
An initial consultation
takes about 90 minutes,
including interview,
diagnostics and fitting.
A frequency test plays
tones in decibels and a
speech test presents a
variety of words to see
whether the patient hears
the words or misin-
terprets or completely
misses them.
The more that people
are socially active in a
variety of environments,
then the more that higher
technology is a neces-
sity to help with hearing
issues.
"Hearing is a privilege


which can be given back,
but too many people buy
hearing devices on price
instead of need," said
Blair. "Investing in more-
expensive equipment
ensures longevity for that
product, and as hearing
loss becomes greater, it
can be adjusted to meet
those needs."
He offers same-day
service, usually providing
a device from his inven-
tory, then teaching how
to use it so the patient
can be hearing better
that day. He offers house
calls and outreach to local
retirement communities
and groups to talk about
how hearing loss occurs
and how medications can
affect the problem.
Blair is certified by the
National Board for Hear-
ing Instrument Services,
the Florida Society for
Hearing Care Profession-
als and the International
Hearing Society, board
certified in hearing aid
sciences; and an accred-
ited audioprosthologist.

SMH ranks high locally, in state


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota Memorial Hospital
is one of the top 10 hospitals
in the state, according to U.S.
News & World Report.
Information released by
the online magazine shows
Sarasota Memorial is No. 8
in Florida, after hospitals in
Tampa, Orlando, Gainesville,
Jacksonville and Weston. And
of the 11 hospitals in the North
Port-Bradenton-Sarasota metro-
politan statistical area, SMH is
listed as No. 1 in quality of care.
"We're really happy about
that," said SMH spokeswoman
Kim Savage.
Savage said as the freestanding


North Port ER on Toledo Blade
Boulevard is a department of
SMH, it is included in the quality
analysis of the SMH system.
U.S. News also awarded SMH
a national specialty ranking -
No. 47 in gynecology and
accorded it high-performing
status in four specialties -
gastroenterology, geriatrics,
neurology and neurosurgery,
and pulmonology.
Dr. James Fiorica, a gyneco-
logical oncologist, is the medical
director of SMH's women's
cancer care program. He's been
at the hospital for seven years
after SMH recruited him from
Moffit Cancer Center to set up
an oncology unit. Fiorica called
the U.S. News ranking "exciting."


"Being recognized for this
award, to me, is huge," he said.
"It shows all the effort that's
gone into being recognized ...
It takes a lot of people and a lot
of energy."
He said some of the things
SMH has done well over the last
several years include developing
its minimally invasive surgery
unit "Almost all our endome-
trial cancer patients are treated
with minimally invasive sur-
gery," he said and increasing
its capacity to perform robotic
surgeries.
"We have eight to 10 gyne-
cological doctors doing robotic
surgery" for ailments such as
pelvic pain, urinary problems
and pelvic floor reconstruction


for weaknesses brought on by
childbirth, Fiorica said, adding
that doctors' dedication really
stands out.
"My focus when I came here
was to develop clinical research
trials for women with cancer
(and) bring cancer vaccines and
national gynecological oncol-
ogy clinical trials here," he said.
"That's really what we want to do,
have patients have access to new
vaccines and ... new technology."
U.S. News noted SMH was one
of 148 hospitals 3 percent of
the 4,793 studied to be ranked
in one of 16 specialties.
According to SMH, the U.S.
News ranking is the latest laurel
for the hospital in 2012 honor-
ing its overall care and singling


out women's care in particular.
Recently, HealthGrades named
Sarasota Memorial among
'America's 50 Best Hospitals"
and placed it in the top 5 percent
of providers for patient safety.
It also received HealthGrades'
"Distinguished Hospitals for
Clinical Excellence," the Women's
Health Excellence Award, the
Maternity Care Excellence Award,
Emergency Medicine Excellence
award and five-star ratings in 23
different specialty areas.
According to the U.S. News
website, Florida has more than
260 hospitals, 10 of which are
nationally ranked. Twenty
others met standards for strong
performance within the state.

North Port gets another MPO committee seat


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Three months after the
Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan
Planning Organization gave the
OK for its Citizen Advisory Com-
mittee to amend its bylaws and
allow another North Port seat,
the MPO unanimously adopted
the amendment Monday that
will give Sarasota County's most
populous city another voice.
"It's great that we've finally
got another seat on the CAC,"
said North Port City Commis-
sioner and MPO member David
Garofalo, who has been pushing


for more representation since
his arrival to the MPO in 2009.
The current 27-member CAC
advises the MPO by reviewing
and providing comment on area
transportation planning issues
and needs. The cities of Sarasota
and Bradenton each have two
members on the committee,
while North Port only has one.
North Port, with 57,357 residents
counted in the 2010 census, is
the most populated municipality
in the two counties. Sarasota is
next with 51,917, followed by
Bradenton in Manatee County
with 49,546. The city of Venice
has 20,748 residents.


However, changing the CAC
bylaws is not dependent on
2010 census results.
At its June meeting, the CAC
approved amending its bylaws for
the extra seat by a 10-5 margin.
All five votes against the motion
came from Manatee County rep-
resentatives. No current seats will
be lost as the committee expands
to 28 members.
"I'm happy to hear it and it's
long overdue," said Ken Maturo,
North Port's representative on
the CAC board, who was not in
attendance at Monday's meet-
ing in the Selby Auditorium at
USF in Sarasota. "We can move


forward from here."
The MPO will be sending a letter
to the city of North Port, advising
officials of the change. Anyone
who is interested in the post can
apply. The North Port City Com-
mission will review the candidates
before making a selection. The
process could take anywhere from
six months to a year.
MPO executive director Michael
Howe said when the CAC gets
reapportioned, an adjustment of
the MPO board membership is
likely. The MPO board configura-
tion is subject to census figures.
"There's different growth
patterns in communities, and


it's obvious that North Port has
become an attractive option over
the last decade for people to live,
raise a family and hopefully work
as they increase their job oppor-
tunities," Howe said. "I think it's
healthy to have that growth, and
they've done it in a good manner.
"From a transportation
standpoint, the projects they've
undertaken are of really high cali-
ber in the way they've designed
and built them specifically
Sumter Boulevard and Toledo
Blade. Those are very well-done
examples of good, arterial-type
roadways with landscaping, and
bicycle and pedestrian amenities."

eventually adopt.
The millage rate can be
lowered, but not raised
above this rate when the
budget is finalized in late
September.
Council members were
so jittery about adopting
the maximum pre-
liminary mill rate that it
passed by the narrowest
of margins, 4-3.
"At 4.88 (mills), that's
a real heart stopper. It's
absolutely sticker shock,"
said Mayor John Holic,
who was on the losing
end of the vote.
"We don't need to spend
a lot of time answering
questions (about a millage
rate) we're never going to
go to."
Council Member Jim
Bennett sought some-
thing lower than 4.88
mills as a ceiling, but it
didn't gain traction.
"I'm not going to fund
any new taxes until I see
(city) waste reduced,"
said Council Member
Bob Daniels.
But the majority opted
to give council the most
leeway throughout the
budget adoption process,
and agreed to the maxi-
mum 4.8874 preliminary
rate as the ceiling.
Council thanked Laval-
lee for coming in with a
realistic budget, noting
the city is projecting to
come in $260,000 under

In other news, Venice
City Council is moving
forward with plans to
build a north-south
connector between Laurel
Road and Border Road.
On Tuesday council
approved a design-build
agreement to carry out
construction. Sarasota
County originally asked to
have the speed limit set at
45 mph, but city officials
are insisting 35 mph is
more appropriate, said
City Engineer Kathleen
Weeden, because it's a
winding road that will
include a wider pedestrian
walkway on one side and
a sidewalk on the other.
Currently Laurel Road
is the only road in and
out of the area. The con-
nector would provide a
second "escape route" in
case of an emergency.


budget by the end of
September.
"In government you
rarely if ever hear of a
surplus," Holic said. "I am
all for moving that to next
year's budget, rather than
having somebody say,
'Let's expend it or I won't
get as much next year'."
City Finance Director
Jeff Snyder described the
economic landscape,
saying the housing
market slide appears
to have reached bot-
tom. Taxable values are
down only 0.2 percent
this year, as opposed to
5.3 percent, 9.8 percent,
13.1 percent and 16.4 per-
cent drops over the last
four years, respectively.
Despite uncertainty in
the European financial
market, "mixed economic
messages almost daily"
and city pension plans
that "continue to be
an increasing burden,"
Snyder said, consumer
confidence is increasing,
and staff is cautiously
optimistic "that the end of
the recession is in sight."
General revenues total
$20.5 million in the draft
budget. With all state
and federal funds the
draft city budget totals
$74.3 million.
The city's rainy day
account, the reserve
fund, has $7.7 million.

The 30-acre right of
way was a gift from land-
owner CNL Bank, which
will qualify for 75 percent
of eligible impact fee
reimbursements.
The county and city
also agreed on joint use of
stormwater ponds, poten-
tially freeing up land for
development, potentially
contributing to a bigger
tax base for the city.
"It's a classic example
of cooperation between
private and public enti-
ties," said Holic.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Hines for Sarasota County Commission


Stepping in to fill the shoes of
term-limited Sarasota County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
won't be an easy task, but we believe
Charles Hines of Venice is the best
man for the job.
He is facing Randy McClendon of
Englewood in the Republican Party.
William B. Slider of Venice qualified
as a write-in, closing the primary
to Democrats and independents,
effectively giving the GOP primary
winner a pass in the General Election.
The new District 5 stretches along the
coast from Osprey to Englewood and
inland to include Thomas Ranch in
North Port.
McClendon is a founder of the
Englewood-based Taking Our
Country Back, an offshoot of the
tea party, but he is far from a fire-
breathing caricature. McClendon
is thoughtful and soft-spoken. His
grassroots organizational skills are
impressive: TOCB boasts more than
900 members.
A former Southern Baptist minister


now working in real estate, McClen-
don has a strong conservative vision
that all government "is too big and too
intrusive."
"What I believe and put into
practice," he told us, is that, "we have
reduced people's dependence on God
and made them dependent on the
government."
On a couple of issues specifically, he
said he did not support the purchase
of Warm Mineral Springs or Snook
Haven. He does not believe Sarasota
County's Economic Development
Fund, or a system that provides tax
incentives for new businesses, is
an appropriate use of government
money.
"Philosophically, I don't believe the
county is supposed to be a venture
capitalist," he said.
While we appreciate McClendon's
thoughtfulness, we believe Hines, a
moderate Republican, will take a more
open and creative approach to issues.
Hines, 46, was born, raised and lives
in Venice, where he works as a lawyer.


He has been involved in community
service organizations the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce, United
Way, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and
the Sarasota County Sheriff Advisory
Committee, among others and in
youth sports. As such, he is aware of
things like the quality of ball fields
(they're OK, but the parks department
could do better) and believes more
attention to sports and recreational
facilities could drive economic
development.
For instance, he supported the reno-
vation of Ed Smith Stadium.
"For us to lose spring training base-
ball would have been devastating,"
Hines told us.
He believes the Legacy Trail could
be a "catalyst to redevelop the Intra-
coastal," and that local government
has a role to play in the development
effort. He supports the Economic
Development Fund "if it's property
managed," referring to early missteps
with the program. He also thought the
Warm Mineral Springs project would


have a positive economic impact in
South County.
Hines also said he would work to
make county government "simpler,
more effective for people to do
business." He believes in a customer-
driven approach that would "help
citizens through the process."
Hines impressed us with his
positions and his even-tempered
approach to the job at hand. He said
he would bring a "common business
sense" to the job. We also appreciate
the fact that he would continue in the
moderate tradition established over
the past decade.
Noting his endorsements, he told
us, "I hope to go forward in a smooth,
balanced manner."
"I'm not running because I'm
angry," he said. "I think these guys
on the county commission get it, and
they're doing a good job. "
We agree, and think he will as well.
We recommend Charles Hines
for Sarasota County Commissioner,
District 5, in the Republican primary.


Changing times


Tim
Smolarick


The never-ending cycle of
change has a way of touching
us all, and here at Gondolier
Sun Central we are not any
more immune to that than the
rest of the businesses in our
market.
The interesting thing about
change to me continues to
be the results once the dust
settles.
We begin our path to adapt-
ing to and overcoming change
this week, as Jan Lugar is down
to three days before she leaves
the advertising department
and Sports Editor Perry Pentz'
last day was yesterday.
It is an incredible journey
that we humans go through in
this thing known as life. There
are highs that can make you
feel super and there are lows
that torment your soul. As we
progress through the journey,
there are people you meet and
then there are those people
you meet that you never forget.
I assure you that both Perry
and Jan rank in the ones I will
not forget.
Professionally, both of these
people perform their duties
with happy hearts and conta-
gious smiles. During the past
year it has been a pleasure
getting to know both of them.
Their contributions to our
company, our community and
to humanity can easily be mea-
sured by the lives touched by
Jan and Perry. I can certainly
say both of these people have
touched my life both profes-
sionally and personally, and
I am so glad to have had the
honor of working with them.
More importantly, I consider


myself blessed as I can call
them friends.
Perry- "The Sports Dude,"
as I call him is moving into
a new career, and I know he
will succeed as he has the
drive and the brains. Jan -
"Go Venice," as I call her is
retiring, and her new role will
be to drive Fred crazy as they
traverse across the country on
the Lugar Bus.
I will miss them both next
week at the Gondolier Sun, and
they should know our entire
staff is both grateful for their
contributions and happy they
have chosen their paths. So
long, my friends, your marks
were made here at the paper
and in our hearts.
Let me remind everyone that
our newest product, Business
Matters, will be publishing
soon; if all goes as planned,
it should be in your paper on
Aug. 4.
Also, our revamped "Best
of" program is getting ready
to kick off. We will do a special
insert with the ballots in late
September, and I strongly
encourage our subscribers to
take 30 minutes and pick the
"best" for each category. There
are not too many awards that
excite business owners more
than receiving a "Best of" vote
from a loyal customer.
So I guess the cycle of
change is truly never-ending.
As we begin this journey, I anx-
iously await the results after
the dust settles and we get to
the other side. We will bring
new people into our world; we
will learn and grow together.
New inspiration will surely
come as we move forward.
I learned a long time ago
to embrace change, as I am
sure Perry and Jan will. I also
learned to create change when
it makes the world better and,
finally, to encourage and help
the people around you to make
change when it is needed.
It's a never-ending cycle.

Tim Smolarick is publisher of
the Gondolier Sun.

WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU: MAINTAINING SERVICE LEVELS OR KEEPING TAX RATES


THE SAME? CALL US AT 941-20O
Treat. This week I went up
to the Asolo Theater to see the
Summer Circus Show. What
a treat. For $15 it was sheer
enjoyment. Children of all ages
were there to enjoy the show.
If that show can attract a full
house, why can't people in
Venice expect the Circus Arena
to bring back shows in Venice
to enjoy? The recent column
from the director of the Triangle
Inn gave facts on what the inn
does; and if you add it up, for
2,000 people a year showing
up to view it that's about 40
people a week. Does that really
show much interest in the inn?
I have yet to meet someone
who says they have visited it.
Why do they need $3 million to
build another building? I don't
understand why people don't
get behind the arena founda-
tion to help us out.
Appreciated. On patriotic
holidays along U.S. 41 Bypass
they have all the flags out, and it
just does my heart good to drive
by there. I thank them. It's really
very special for me and many
others that drive by. Also, a big
thank you for those who paid
for the fireworks on the Fourth
of July; they were beautiful. They
seem to get better every year.
They are really important to the
residents of Venice and we do
thank you, even though not all
of us can contribute to it.
Trailing. In the city of Venice
absolutely no food vendor sales
are allowed. Those are the rules.
The ice cream truck is the only
one that has a food vendor truck
permit. Down by the puppy
park, why is there a food con-
cession trailer when there's no
food concession trailers allowed
in the city of Venice? It must
be nice that the city of Venice
doesn't have to follow any of its
own rules. And who's getting the
revenue produced for a whole
year now from that trailer? Is the
trailer even licensed?


Let 'em


Have It
Gesundheit. Most of the
people who bring dogs to
restaurants are caring indi-
viduals who don't want their
dog to bother anyone else. But
I will tell you what is a bother.
The bother is when someone
picks up their napkin, blows
their nose with it and puts it
back on the table. Now that is
a disgusting nuisance, not the
dog. Take care of these ill-
mannered people.
Pro union. Who says Florida
is anti-union? We love unions.
Consider the residents of the
Venetian Golf & River Club.
Their union is called the
homeowners association. All
homeowners, some former
managers, join in paying dues.
Enjoying the union, homeown-
ers give up certain rights in
return for bargaining power.
They actually work for the
city through paying taxes, but
they expect fair treatment. But
now consider independent
homeowners on Venice island.
Suppose the city leaders are
thinking of granting someone
the right to build a taller


building in an area. A simple
"no" by residents is insufficient.
Legal argument is demanded.
The union of homeowners of
the Venetian Golf & River Club
can readily supply a lawyer
backed up by many members.
No room? I'm calling about
the Challenger program. I don't
understand the problem at
Wellfield Park. The park has
baseball, softball, football,
cheerleading, disc golf, ten-
nis, basketball, newer soccer
fields and a nature trail on the
outside, and there's not room
for Challenger baseball? I don't
understand that, especially
since Challenger has all the
money. It will pay for everything
and make it a feasible park for
150 handicapped children to
play at no cost to the city or
anybody else. So, I don't get it. I
think it's some politicians who
have some kind of grievance
against Challenger baseball, or
they're in cahoots with some
of the homeowners out there
because it seems to me that
everything is fine there. I wish
city council would change its
mind and think again that this
is a place we need to work out
for young people and children
with problems.

Hunger lurks around every corner


Right here in Venice,
parents skip meals
so their kids can eat.
Seniors forgo medication
so they can buy food.
Hundreds of children
and families struggle
with hunger every day.
In June, the number
of people receiving
federal food assistance


in Southwest Florida
jumped to the highest
level since the local
economy began souring
in 2007. The demand
for food assistance has
increased in this region
as more and more
people become "food
insecure," a buzz phrase
for the growing level of
hunger that is reaching
well into the middle
class.
All Faiths Food Bank
provides more than
740,000 pounds of
food in Venice to help
meet the growing need.
Wednesday is delivery
day. Drivers from All
Faiths Food Bank leave


our warehouse at 8 a.m.
with fresh produce,
frozen meat, dairy and
nonperishable items.
Agencies receive the
food, check the order,
offload the pallets and
get ready for clients.
All Faiths Food Bank
partners with food pan-
tries and other programs
to feed people who are
food insecure. Do you
know the difference
between a food bank and
a food pantry? A food
bank collects, inspects,
warehouses and distrib-
utes food to nonprofit
organizations such as
food pantries, soup
kitchens, shelters and


other feeding programs.
A food pantry provides
food and other services
directly to people in
need.
In Venice, we distrib-
ute the food through a
network of 16 hunger
relief agencies, as well
as three programs in
Laurel and a twice-
monthly mobile
cupboard in Nokomis.
All Faiths Food Bank
also provides a variety
of direct services in
Venice, including Back-
pack programs in seven
local schools, Cooking
Matters classes in four
locations and Growing
Healthy Kids in five


area preschools.
All Faiths Food Bank
is a certified member of
Feeding America the
nation's largest hunger
relief charity and
one of 14 food banks in
Florida. We are the only
food bank in Sarasota
and DeSoto counties.
Last year, All Faiths
Food Bank distributed
more than 6 million
pounds of food to our
partner food pantries,
soup kitchens and other
organizations that have
feeding programs or
provide food in those two
counties. As partners, all
of us worked together
to provide more than


5 million meals to our
neighbors in need.
Together we can help
a family striving for
self-sufficiency or an
individual struggling
for survival. Let's make
it our collective goal
to make sure no one
should ever again have
to choose between
feeding their children or
paying rent.
To find out how you
can help, call 941-379-
6333 or email me at
sfrank@allfaithsfood
bank.org.

Sandra Frank is execu-
tive director of All Faiths
Food Bank.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Facts are
stubborn things
Editor:
Mr. Pfeifle's letter to the
editor of July 18 attempts
to rewrite factual his-
tory by dredging up and
recycling the same tired
myths, sprinkling in a few
new fallacies and topping
it off with a quote from
an inaccurate source.
True, the airport is
where it is, and that's
where the letter's facts
end. A trip to the Venice
Area Historical Society
yields a banker's box full
of photos showing the
airport set in a then deso-
late and remote parcel
south of downtown, with
no Intracoastal Waterway,
no public residential
development and few
roads accessing it. Rather
than asking the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
why it cut the waterway
as it is, Mr. Pfeifle blames
bridge openings on the
airport. If a fixed span
was feasible for the
Circus Bridge, then why
not for the Venice Avenue


bridge and the Hatchett
Creek Bridge as well?
To claim the airport
is creating "reluctance"
with respect to sup-
porting Circus Arena
rehabilitation is an
absolutely false asser-
tion. The airport and the
airport enterprise fund
would clearly benefit
from the approximately
$500,000 in fair market
value rent generated by
a rehabilitated arena.
Perhaps reluctance lies in
the economy and public
sentiment toward a reno-
vated circus building.
But most unsettling is
a lack of understanding
about the relationship
between the airport, the
city of Venice and the
FAA. The confines of this
forum don't permit the
full discussion required
for that understand-
ing. Instead, the Venice
Aviation Society Inc. (to
which he is referring) has
published newsletters
that contain pertinent
correspondence between
the FAA, the state of
Florida and the city.


A Chain is a Chain American Continental
They are all the Same
Come to Althea's,
We put them to Shame A l ea's


These documents
unequivocally state that
the city of Venice is the
sole sponsor of the airport,
takes full responsibility for
its operation and mainte-
nance and maintains pow-
ers of eminent domain
over property in Venice.
The FAA explicitly has no
such power.
We urge interested
readers to explore the
VASI website, www.
VeniceAviationSociety.
com, then decide for
themselves the facts
concerning the airport.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


PERRY D. PENTZ


Signing off

When I took this job more than three years
ago, I never thought I'd be writing this column.
After devoting more than 15 years to the
Venice area, it's time to say goodbye.
Being sports editor of the Venice Gondolier
Sun for the last three and a half years has been
a dream job for me.
Those who know me know I love Venice -
the school, the community, the people and the
city. Some would say I bleed green.
I have been making the trip down State
Road 681 so long it seems like my SUV is on
autopilot most days.
Making a decision to leave was not easy
and was done with a heavy heart, as I thought
someday I would retire from here.
However, it's time for a change and a new
adventure.
Over the years I've had the pleasure of
covering some of the best teams and athletes
in the state.
Before I arrived in Venice as a sports
reporter, Venice High was lacking team state
championships.
Not to say I had anything remotely to do with
it, but I leave the city after covering all five of
Venice's team state championships two in
volleyball and baseball and one in football.
In 1998, volleyball with Coach Brian Wheat-
ley at the helm got things rolling with Venice
High's first-ever team state title.
It was a great experience for a new reporter.
Football followed with a season for the ages.
The Indians captured the Class 5A state
football championship with a record-setting
77-14 victory. A 15-0 record came on the heels
of a 20-game regular-season losing streak in
the mid-'90s.
For me, travelling to the University of
Florida to watch the Indians play in the
Swamp and come away with a win is some-
thing I will never forget, as the stands were
filled with green and white.
You would have thought Venice shut down
on that day-- Dec. 15, 2000.
Five years later, volleyball picked up another
state title with only one senior.
Their regional final against Tampa Plant, the
marathon five-set match, is the most exciting
volleyball match I had the pleasure of watch-
ing and reporting.
In 2007, baseball joined the club with the
Class 5A state championship as the Indians
put together two of the best innings ever -
an eight-run third inning against nationally
ranked Pace in the state semifinal and a
nine-run fifth inning in a 12-1 win over Port St.
Lucie in the championship.
In May, I couldn't have been more thrilled
to see VHS claim another title by the baseball
team.
Although the travel five away games -
took its toll, the ride was great, though two
one-run and two two-run victories caused
much angst and sweaty palms.
Although the state titles were something
to remember, it was just a small part of my
duties.
Those who don't understand always thought
covering the sports would get tedious and
boring.
Not the case every team, every season is
different.
I was never interested in covering the Tampa
Bay Rays or Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sports-
writers typically start somewhere small and
advance to the bigger beats. Not me. I wanted
to write about people who appreciated it.
I have enjoyed the small-town atmosphere
of Venice, as it reminded me of where I grew
up in central Pennsylvania.
This job foremost has been about the kids.
Growing up, nothing made me happier than
to see my name in the local newspaper.
Printing people's names and trying not to
embarrass anyone was something I strived to
do.
Reporting the facts is important as a sports
writer.
Over the years, I have done this, but to me,
this position has always been more than a job,
as I care sometimes probably more than I
should, but it was what kept me coming back
every day.
The fantastic people I have met are too
numerous to list, but you all know who you
are. It's a joy to walk down the street or into a
restaurant and know the people.
To all the administrators, coaches and
athletes I have interviewed over the years:
Thanks. Without your cooperation, I wouldn't
have been successful.
Here is hoping I made some of you happy
with my coverage. For me, it's been a pleasure.


I am leaving, but I won't stop caring as the
employees of the Venice Gondolier Sun are
family to me. Words can't express the kindness
they have shown me over the years. I am leav-
ing a job but not my friendships.
My final two written words: Thank you.


BASEBALL

New jobs highlight Octex expansion


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Octex, a custom plastics
manufacturer in Sarasota,
has completed an expan-
sion with the help of a
$200,000 perfomance-
based incentive grant
from the county that will
lead to at least 75 new jobs
over the next five years.
"We told the county
about what we were
doing, the growth we ex-
perienced and our plans
for expansion," Octex


CEO James Westman said
at Thursday evening's rib-
bon-cutting to celebrate
the new facility. "We're in
a labor-intensive busi-
ness, and if we're success-
ful in this expansion, we'll
be adding good-paying
jobs to Sarasota County."
The positions include
administrative and manu-
facturing jobs. Westman
says the company has al-
ready hired 20 new work-
ers and will be looking for
more. He said the average


wage of the new jobs will
be around $37,000 a year,
with benefits.
"I'm hopeful that 75
jobs is a conservative
estimate," Westman said.
"A lot depends on the
economy, but we feel
pretty good about it."
Octex, at 901 Sarasota
Center Blvd., makes a wide
variety of plastic products
that are components of
larger products and several
standalone projects. It has
55 customers in a variety of


different industries, includ-
ing medical, consumer
products and industrial. Its
largest customer is Tervis
- it makes the plastic
frames for the well-known
drinking glass company
in Venice. Tervis accounts
for nearly 55 percent of
Octex's business.
Octex also makes
gauge housings for boat
manufacturers, lawn
furniture components,
filters for aerospace
companies, and medical


and surgical products.
Westman purchased the
company in 2009. He said
the company was already
on a good growth trajec-
tory when he took over,
and it was running out
of space in its building.
Plans were drawn up to
nearly double the build-
ing space for production
and warehouse square
footage, and the company
approached the county
about the $200,000 grant
based on job growth.


Octex's 26,000-square-
foot expansion includes
13,000 square feet of mold-
ing space. The company
recently made a $3 million
capital machinery invest-
ment and purchased the
13,000-square-foot former
Iron Mountain building
located directly to the
south of the main building
in March. Further expan-
sion could take place on
another acre on the east
end of the property.

Struggle at hospital ends in arrest


A man taken into invol-
untary custody under the
Florida Marchman Act for
substance
abuse went
berserk
at Venice
Regional
Medical
Center,
where

HAMPSON he was
taken for
treatment.
According to a Venice
Police Department
report:
Richard William
Hampson was taken to
the emergency room
for treatment when
he became "verbally
abusive and physically
combative."
The 30-year-old alleg-
edly threatened police
officers, made racial
slurs and spit on one
police officer while being
restrained
Hampson, 100 block
Orange Grove St., was
later taken to the Sara-
sota County jail where
he was charged with
battery on a firefighter,
resisting an officer and
crimes against a public
servant for threats he also
made against medical
personnel.

Venice Police Traffic Officer
Andy Levesque displays the
Florida Transportation Depart-
ment's Florida Law Enforce-
ment Liaison program DUI
Challenge third-place award
on behalf of the Venice Police
Department, July 13.

Department's Florida
Law Enforcement Liaison
program DUI Challenge
July 13 in Orlando.
Venice was one of more
than 40 law enforcement
agencies from around
the state competing in
various categories.
The award is based
on an evaluation point
system. Ultimately, an
agency's points may be
exchanged for education
and law enforcement
equipment.


"We were able to
receive this award
because of our efforts
in education and law
enforcement regarding
drinking and driving,"
Traffic Officer Andy
Levesque said.
Some of those efforts
included communication
with the public through
media, banners and
other programs about
the hazards of drinking
and driving. DUI stops
and arrests reflect the
enforcement side of the
equation.
As a result of the points
the department earned,
it was able to purchase
several tools that it did
not have the budget to
acquire otherwise.
Among the tools
earned by competing in
the DUI Challenge are an
in-car video system that
will record traffic stops,


worth about $5,000; an
updated laser mapping
system for scaled dia-
grams of traffic accidents
and crime scenes, valued
at about $5,000; and a
traffic data collecting
device that measures
speed, vehicular counts
and other data, worth
around $2,200.

Area jobless numbers increase


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
While the jobless rate
in Florida remained
unchanged in June,
unemployment across
Southwest Florida
rose from the previous
month, according to the
latest jobs report from
the state Department of
Economic Opportunity.
Sarasota County
posted higher unem-
ployment numbers in
June, likely the result of
a slowdown in seasonal
work in industries such
as agriculture and tour-
ism during the summer
months.
Sarasota reported
unemployment at
8.7 percent, up from
8.4 percent in May.
Meanwhile, Florida's
seasonally adjusted

Source: Florida Department of Economic Opportunity


unemployment rate
remained flat at 8.6 per-
cent, representing
some 795,000 jobless
people out of a civilian
labor force of roughly
9.3 million.
State and federal rates
are reported differently
from regional figures,
which are not season-
ally adjusted to account
for fluctuations in areas
such as tourism and
agriculture. Nationally,
the unemployment rate
was 8.2 percent in June.
Still, state officials
were quick to note that


Florida added 9,000
jobs last month.
"In the month of June,
9,000 more Floridians
got new jobs and were
able to receive a pay-
check to help provide
for their families," Gov.
Rick Scott said in a
prepared statement.
But local job experts
have mixed feelings
about the latest num-
bers, saying that while
unemployment hasn't
changed much, the need
still remains high for
people looking to find
permanent, quality work.


Madison Mitchell,
the community rela-
tions coordinator for
Goodwill Industries of
Southwest Florida, said
the need for employ-
ment services is still
very high.
The agency opened
its first Goodwill Job-
Link center in 2009,
she said, and since
then seven more have
opened, including one
in Englewood that just
celebrated its ribbon-
cutting last week.
"Our numbers have
definitely increased,"
Mitchell said.
But that's not what
Lynn Gahagan, manager
at Express Employment,
is seeing.
Gahagan, who has
been with the employ-
ment firm for 16 years,
said she spends about


50 percent of her time
trying to recruit workers
for job openings.
"I had a landscaping
position for a govern-
ment agency and it took
weeks to fill that job,"
Gahagan said.
And that might be
part of the difficulty,
since about half of
the jobs she's trying
to fill are for "lower-
end-paying jobs" like


landscaping, warehouse
work, packing and
stocking. The other
half, she said, are office
and administrative
assistant-type jobs.
Still, a job is a job,
Gahagan said.
"People say there are
no jobs. That's baloney,"
Gahagan said. "Give
them my card. I'll find
them a job."

SUN NEWSPAPERS


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

A Japanese woman
who is married to
a Puerto Rican has
brought the essence of
Bali to Venice.
Now living in Noko-
mis, Surapsari Megumi
visits Bali at least once
a year and has been
studying its dance forms
for 15 years. With her
husband, Indra Sampra-
nata Pablo, she performs
and teaches in both
Bali and throughout the
United States. Both have
acquired Balinese names
(Surapsari and Indra
Sampranata).
She has a master's
degree in intercultural
relations from Lesley
University in Massachu-
setts and is the author
of "My Bali Memories
of the Island of the
Gods." While living
there she went through
an initiation ceremony
(mawinten) and her
spiritual name, Surap-
sari, from Ida Pedanda
Temuku, a high priest in
Tampaksiring, Bali.
Her husband also
studied at Lesley, earn-
ing a master's degree in
interdisciplinary study.
While working toward
his degree, he studied
extensively in Bali,
concentrating on ethno-
graphic subjects such as
myth, Jungian psychol-
ogy, Balinese dance in
practice and theory.
He teaches meditation
and is a certified retreat
guide.
At a recent luncheon
of the Newcomers of
Venice Alumni club,
Surapsari performed
a classic legong dance
and also a more modern
Balinese dance, the bird
of paradise dance.
"Legong is one of Bali's
most exquisite dance
forms," she said. "It is
performed by female
dancers who symbolize
divine celestial angels."
Balinese dancers learn
more than steps dur-
ing the years it takes to
master even a few of the
dances. One of the first
lessons is to empty one's
"self," letting go of one's
ego, because the dance
and the story it relates to
are more important than
any individual dancer.
When a dancer smiles,
it draws attention to
the dancer more than
the dance, Surapsari
said during a question-
and-answer session that
followed each dance
presentation.
While dancing, her
eyes are wide open and
virtually unblinking,
to "disperse spiritual
energy through the
eyes." Her mouth is
closed.
Watching someone
perform with such
a neutral demeanor,
viewers are drawn to the
subtle movements of
the fingers, the bend of

the knee and even the
direction of the feet. In
his book "Bali: Morning
of the World," Nigel Sim-
monds writes that there
are "no fewer than 30
names listed for dance
movements of the feet
and legs, 16 for those of
the arms, 19 for hands
and fingers, 14 for the
trunk, 20 for the neck
and shoulders and 16 for


facial expression."
Surapsari seemed
to use most of the
movements in her two
dances. It is no won-
der dancers must rid
themselves of their ego
in order not to detract
from these movements
and expressions.
"For the Balinese,
dance is not only a
form of entertainment


but a sacred ritual to
please the deities and
ancestors, as well as
the medium for travel-
ing between 'Sekala,'
the world of form, and
'Niskala,' the world of
spirits," Surapsari says
on her website.
Also from her website:
"The core philosophy
of Balinese-Hinduism is
to maintain the balance
of opposite forces, such
as 'yin and yang,' 'male
and female' and 'good
and evil.' This principle
is beautifully reflected in
Balinese dance, where
movements are repeated
on the right and left
sides to establish
harmony."
Such attention to
detail permeates the arts
of Bali, whether a batik
fabric design, a paint-
ing filled with myriad
details, a hand-carved
statue from Batubulan
or the appropriate cos-
tume for a given dance.
Costumes are quite
costly and rarely owned
by individual dancers,
Surapsari said after her
recent performance.
One viewer asked
Surapsari if her head-
dress was made of gold.
If it were, it would
be even more valu-
able. From a distance
it appears to be similar
to the delicate gold and
silver lace-like jewelry
made in Celuk on the
island of Bali. Up close,
one realizes it is made
of leather intricately cut
and decorated with gold
leaf. Frangipani blos-
soms add other design
elements and are usually
freshly picked on Bali,
where they grow all over
the island.
Collars are crafted in a
similar manner. They are
lined with silk and often
further embellished with
beads or even jewels.
The dresses are made of
silk. That fabric also is
adorned with gold leaf.
Additional leather-
work was used to make
a belt with long apron
and two fans, which she
used while dancing at
the Plantation Golf &
Country Club.
The same type of
leather work is used to
make Bali's shadow pup-
pets. Shadow puppets
and dance are the two
most popular forms of
entertainment on the
island, located in the
Indonesian archipelago.
The legong dance is
about 200 years old and
is considered one of
the most popular of the
many dances of Bali.
"According to the
'Babad Dalem Sukawati,'
a genealogical chronicle
of the court of Sukawati,
legong was created as
the result of a vision
that came to the king,"
Surapsari said.
The series of dances

Moving to a new place
can be a bit unsettling at
any age. But thanks to a
group of fellow newbies
in the Venice area, friend-
ships are just around the
corner.
Beth Palmer Adams
found herself in need of
a social life when she and
her late husband, Ralph
Palmer, moved to Venice
in 1992.
Having joined a club
for newcomers in Myrtle
Beach, S.C., she thought
she'd start one in Venice.
She ran an ad in the
newspaper and nine
people responded. She
appointed officers and
the group began social-
izing and advertising for
more members. By the
end of the year, nearly
100 had joined the club
and new officers were
elected.
"We had monthly
luncheon meetings, but
our meetings were more
social than business,"
Adams said. "We had
speakers at our meetings
and held dances, beach
picnics and dinners."
The club continues
these get-togethers and
has added special inter-
est events.
At the end of the first
year, Adams and the
members wondered what
they would do as the
membership continued
to grow.
"How would we be able
to fit new people in?" she
said.
They decided to let
everyone stay in VNC
for three years and then
move up to a long-range
extension of the club. A
naming contest was held
and Newcomers of Venice
Alumni was formed in
1993.
VNC celebrated its
20th anniversary in
January. The members
invited Adams and paid
homage to her by giving
her a corsage, taking her
picture for the scrapbook
and giving her time to
speak. She recounted the
history of the club.

newsletter ran a brief
account of the thank-you
to Adams for having
started the club, which
has since grown to 270
members.
"Thank you, Beth, the
founding members and
their successors over the
last 20 years," the news-
letter said. "We grate-
fully acknowledge your
dedicated efforts and
thank you for the warm,
beautiful and fun legacy
and organization that
you have gifted to us."
Bob Bartholomew,
VNC president, said the
club provides a channel
for new residents to the
Venice area -Venice,
Nokomis, Laurel and
Osprey to meet other
new people to the area.
"It gives them the
opportunity to form new
friendships and get to
know the area by partici-
pating in club-sponsored
activities," he said. "We
have myriad activities,
including day trips and
cruises, golf, dining and
outdoor activities. The
list goes on."
People must live in the
area full time for nine
months out of the year to
be eligible and must join
Newcomers within three
years of moving here. The
annual membership fee
is $40.

administration and
conducts bimonthly
luncheon meetings with
speakers or entertain-
ment. Its annual fee is

Improv lights up FST's cabaret


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

For those who wanted
an excuse to come in out
of the rain, improvisors
at Florida Studio Theatre
had all the right moves
Saturday to dispel any
doldrums.
During the second day
of non-stop comedy with
one-hour shows that ran
from 6 p.m. to midnight,
improvisors gave it their
all.
Vintage Whine, a group
of more than a handful of
senior citizen perform-
ers, joked, bantered and
teased enough to bring
snickers and guffaws
from the audience.
The group started
out with what Rebecca
Hopkins, Improv Festival
Director, announced as
their signature show:
"They're people with a
lot to say who definitely
know how to whine."
Each performer
whined about an indi-
vidual topic, shouted
out earlier by audience
members as things that


A group of improvisers delight in mayhem and laughter at

make them angry. Topics
included rental cars,
too much seaweed on
the beach, cellphones,
hurricanes, telemarketers
and men in Speedos.
The audience gave a
chuckle when a female
whiner said she thought
it would be fine for a
man to wear a Speedo if
he wore a fur coat on top
of it.
George Pochos, 80,
who said in the program
that "he does improve


because he can't remem-
ber the lines," played
Nanci Rand's husband
when the pair were see-
ing a marriage counselor.
They both were sent
off-stage to prevent them
from hearing Hopkins
set up the next act for
the audience, which they
were to guess. After a few
missed guesses, such as
Pochos saying they were
there because Rand goes
out on her own shopping
too much, they hit on


the truth. The scenario
really had the wife going
out to Starbucks a lot
with Tom Cruise. The
audience gave a collec-
tive cheer when the pair
finally guessed the topic
correctly.
Following Vintage
Whine was Sarasota's
Lazy Fairy, a mainstay
group at FST which
always delights. They had
the audience in stitches
during their short shows,
but their long-form
improve show brought the
most hilarity.
Without missing a beat,
after two suggestions
came from the audience
that the family the group
would portray were
"redneck" and "gothic,"
the antics began.
Darryl Knapp took
a seat on the couch,
stretched out in lackadai-
sical fashion, as if high
on meth, while Christine
Alexander sat at the
couch edge and talked
to Knapp, "papa," with a
redneck southern drawl.
Joey Panek knocked at
the door and Knapp


carried out the theme
by unlatching about six
bolts from the imaginary
door to let him in.
Then the fun began
as the "family" toyed
with Panek's character,
who innocently there to
pick up their daughter
"Megan" to go to a
movie. Catey Brannan
stood real close to Panek
and just stared at him,
making his character feel
really uncomfortable. He
rolled his eyes showing
his "distress."
"It's really dark in
here," Panek said, letting
the audience imagine a
darkened living room.
The family talked about
the "coffin-like box"
in front of the couch
and another quipped
something about grand-
mother needing to give
her permission for the
movie outing. Then
Brannan laid down in
the coffin (on the floor)
and Alexander came
and plunked down on
top of her. The audience
roared when Knapp
approached, thinking he


was going to lay down
on top of everyone (don't
forget, grandma's on the
bottom). But Knapp said
there were too many
people in there, so he
didn't join in. Whew!
The evening played out
to everyone's enjoyment.
Light bites, sandwiches
and beverages were on
sale in the Goldstein
Cabaret, and improve
shows continued there
and in the Keating
Theatre to include the
groups Stacked, Dad's
Garage, Jester Theatre,
Available Cupholders,
SAK Comedy Lab and All
Play that brought all the
groups together at the
end. A closing night party
was held at Maximo.
The festival is over
for this year, but more
improve shows are
scheduled at FST July 28,
Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25. For

Library addresses issue of hunger

The nation's hungry
often go unnoticed by
people who go about
their daily lives without
realizing there are many
people who do not get
enough to eat.
Patrons of the Jaca-
randa Public Library are

by an exhibit in the

Library assistant
Stephanie Henricks
created a display of
books about hunger and
included handouts that
let people know of local
agencies that provide
food for people in need.

said.
A Hunger Facts sheet
available at the exhibit
says that in 2010,
48.8 million Americans


- including 16 million
children lived in
households where food
was not always available.
There are hungry
people in every county
in the nation, according
to Feeding America.
Henricks used data from
that national organiza-
tion to put the problem
in perspective.
The exhibit came
about after library staff
members read about a
library on the West Coast
that raised awareness
of issues by creating
displays of books built
around a theme, said
Jacaranda library man-
ager Greg Carlson.
Jacaranda staff
members were asked to
choose issues to high-
light through a series of


displays, and to provide
information on how
residents can address
those issues locally as
volunteers, or through
other actions.
The hunger exhibit is
one of the pilot projects
of that Books to Action
program.
"Books to Action pro-
motes library collections
while raising awareness
and encouraging direct
action on a local level,"
Carlson said. "One might
think of our initiative as
converting library collec-
tion development into
community connection
development."

SKY Academy earns'A'grade


FROM SOUTH COUNTY
FAMILY YMCA

The South County
Family YMCA's SKY
Academy received an
"A' school grade for its
first year of operations.
The designation by the
Florida Department of
Education comes during
a year when many public
schools saw their grades


drop as the difficulty
level of measurements
tests was increased.
"This 'A' grade validates
all of the work our stu-
dents, teachers and staff
put into our first year,"
said Dr. Oleh Bula, SKY
Academy principal.
"Not only did our
students perform well on
the FCAT, but they set the
standard for our school


during our first year
where everything cur-
riculum, staff and lunch
schedules was new.
I am so proud of our
students and thankful for
the support of parents
and everyone at the Y."
A limited number of
spots for sixth, seventh
and eighth grades are
still available for the
upcoming school year.


Enrollment is available
daily from 8 a.m. to
3 p.m. at the school
office, 705 Center Road.
Parents with questions
can contact the registrar
at 941-244-2626.
SKY, which stands for
Strength & Knowledge
at the YMCA, is a public
charter middle school.
Academics and activities
are looked at through the


lens of total wellness in
spirit, mind and body.
Students experience a
strong academic pro-
gram as well as expanded
physical fitness educa-
tion and activities twice a
day. All students receive
a free YMCA membership
and free before- and
after-school care.
Florida has graded
schools on an A-F scale


since 1999, offering par-
ents, teachers, students
and taxpayers a simple
and effective way to see
how well their schools
are doing. High-perform-
ing schools and those
that improve their school
grade may receive school
recognition dollars, and
struggling schools will
receive extra help to
improve.

presentation to the gods

be lured down from the
heavens.
There are about 12
legong dances, she said.
During the past 200
years, the dances have
undergone changes in
the villages where they
are practiced. Many of
the changes and even
some new dances have
been created by people
moving to Bali from a
variety of other places.
The popular "monkey
dance" was created in
1932 for a German film
company, according to
Simmonds.
The dances and
puppet shows are as
much a part of everyday
Balinese life as the many
religious holidays and
the custom of making
offerings to the gods
first thing each morn-
ing. Nearly every house
has its own temple or
altar where the Balinese
practice their religion,
which is a variation of
Buddhism with some
aspects of Hindu and
animist beliefs, accord-
ing to friends who live
in Bali. Their religion,

activities.
In June, the club
brought in Surapsari
Megumi, a Balinese
dancer, to perform at its
meeting, which was held
at the Plantation Golf &
Country Club. Before the
entertainment, NOVA
President Bob Vodraska
spoke to club members,
as did other officers. Then
lunch was served and the
entertainment followed.
"I enjoy being president
of NOVA," Vodraska said.
"In fact, I like it so much I
volunteered for a second
year and am just begin-
ning it now. The club is a
real treasure."
He said most people
move here from up north
and leave friends and
family behind, and they
need to meet new people.
"They are meeting
some really nice people
(through NOVA) who are
in the same position as
they are and are start-
ing over," he said. "You
have the same common
denominator. They are
not pretentious or think-
ing they're better than
everyone else. I think I've
made more friends here
than I had up north."
After people move on
to NOVA, they can be
members for as long as
they wish, for the rest of
their lives if they want to.

edifices in more popu-
lated areas.
The legong is usually
performed by three
dancers. Two are atten-
dants to the featured girl,
who moves to the music
of the gamelon orchestra,
sometimes tense and
sometimes moving
rapidly always to the
music.
Surapsari performed
the Legong Lasem, which
is about a court lady
who is accompanied by
King Lasem and Princess


Rangkesari. As she was
performing alone, she
presented only the part
of the court lady. Her
costume was that of the
court lady and would
be of a similar design
wherever in Bali that part
of that dance would be
performed.
The same may or may
not be true of Surap-
sari's second dance,
which she said is a
more modern work. The
bird of paradise dance
"expresses the mating
scene of the rare, beau-
tiful and exotic bird.
The male bird lures the
female bird by showing
off his splendor."
Again, she danced
just one part, the male
bird part. She has been
trained to perform both
male and female roles in
many of the dances.
These two dances
are among several that
would be presented for
tourists in Bali, most
often in the area outside
of Ubud, which is the
art center of the island.


SUN NEWSPAPERS 7B

While these two dances
do not employ masks,
many do, and ornate cos-
tumes as well. Elements
of the famed barong
dance, which concerns
good and evil, include
some of the same body
movements of the legong
but the entire head of the
main dancer is covered
with a giant mask that
includes floor-length
tendrils made from
horse hair. Other mask
dances feature witches,
the monkey god and
the "exploits of kings,"
according to Simmonds.
The couple will
perform Balinese dances
in Puerto Rico during
August.
Surapsari teaches
Balinese dance and
mysticism as well as
Japanese dance and mys-
ticism, shadow puppet
theater and yoga at her
studio in Nokomis. For

APOINTAS OF REFERENCEAA




POINTS OF REFERENCE


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Patients may not be aware that the source of
the pain they are experiencing actually
originates from a seemingly unrelated part of
the body. So-called "referred pain" is a
phenomenon that is characterized by pain
generated in one part of the body and felt in
another, apparently unrelated area. For
instance, nerve root pain in the mid-back can
simulate coronary heart disease. As with a
heart attack, the pain may radiate to the jaw or


upper left arm. Chiropractors know that the
nervous system can transmit its effect over the
entire body. By relieving an obstruction to the
flow of nerve energy in the back, the
chiropractor can provide beneficial effects
elsewhere in the body.
P.S. One common example of referred pain
involves eating ice so quickly that it causes
"brain freeze," a temporary headache due to
chilling of the vagus nerve.

July 25-31, 2012 E/N/C/V


Take stock in this

Tonight is opening night of the summer stock "The Best

Little Whorehouse in Texas" at Venice Theatre where "Ran-
dom
Acts Cabaret continues tomorrow through Sunday and next
Thursday through Sunday the 90-seat Pinkerton Theatre,
home of Stage II productions.
Note that "Random Acts" is the edgier production and likely to
contain more adult language and situations.
The summer stock production is all in good fun and gives
high school and college students the chance to experience all sides
of a production, both technical and performance. Stock players are
there because of successful auditions and include such performers
as Tony DeNiro who wowed audiences last summer as Judas in
"Jesus Christ Superstar."
For tickets to either show, call the theater box office at
941-488-1115 or visit www.venicestage.com.
Meanwhile, to get a preview on Venice Art Center's next big fund-
raiser SeaVenice, stop by to see the turtles and dolphins. Except for
one dolphin painted by Frances Smith, the sea creatures are still in
their white long johns, awaiting the decorative touches of some of
the top artists in Venice.
Once painted and clear-coated by Econo-Bake, the sea
creatures will take their various places around town in
Venice until spring when they will be auctioned and moved
to more permanent homes by their new owners. At presstime, two
creatures were yet to be sponsored.To learn more, call the VAC at
941-485-7136.
Call that number to for first crack at the new SeaVenice
T-shirts, visors, caps, wine glasses and Tervis Tumblers.

O ROAD TRIP


Ride with the Minions at Universal Orlando


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
What's not to like about minions?
More than a follower, a minion dotes
on its master or owner or the object of
its affections. Problems arise when the minions
dote on and basically act as slaves for someone
not so nice.
That happens in Universal Orlando's new
simulator-type ride, Despicable Me Minion May-
hem. Launched on July 2 at Universal Studios
within the Universal Orlando Resort, the new ride
is based on the Universal Pictures/Illumination
Entertainment animated film, "Despicable Me."
Not just another 3-D simulator ride experience,
this one literally puts riders into the action as
Universal does in its Harry Potter adventure that
gives riders the feeling of soaring above Potter's
Hogwarts world. This time, riders become part of
the minion group, wearing similar goggles and
being subjected to all manner of mayhem from
hammers to jalapeno dip. Along for the ride are
Gru, Margo, Edith, Agnes and many "Mischievous
Minions" from the film.
Riders join Gru and friends in their home
where they are recruited into the minion army.
Given goggles, and then scanned for "human
germs," riders board "Minion Transformation Pods"
and head off to learn their duties. Remember that
you need protective goggles on this ride and,
it is based on a cartoon. Things may not always

Fortunately, in any good cartoon land, things
eventually go right and everyone ends up at a
fun dance party with the minions of course.
It might be a good idea to practice some major
dance moves first because this is the place to


witness yourself and the minions dancing below a
shining disco ball to "Boogie Fever."
Eight is the magic number for this ride. It lasts
eight minutes and each vehicle holds eight pas-
sengers in four rows of two. It is the latest ride in

New at Florida theme parks: Sea turtles, mermaids and minions


BY MARJIE LAMBERT
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
There's a lot going on at Florida's theme
parks, most of which will open a new ride
or attraction during 2012.
Here's a rundown:
BUSCH GARDENS
Keeping with the same caring-for-wildlife
theme, SeaWorld's sister park, Busch Gardens
Tampa Bay, has turned its Animal Care Center
into an attraction. Treatment rooms have wall-to-
wall windows that allow guests to watch certain
procedures and surgeries. Down the hall is the
kitchen, where staff talk to guests about how
and what animals are fed. One day last month,
several young guests assisted the staff in making
meatballs to feed the hyenas.
Also new this year is Iceploration, a show in
the Moroccan Palace aimed at youngsters that
stresses the natural wonders of the earth and
features ice skaters, puppets, acrobats and
live animals.
UNIVERSAL
Universal Studios added two entertainment
attractions last month, a parade and a light-and-
water show, both of them daily, that fill in some
blanks in the park's offerings.
Universal's Superstar Parade has four huge
floats representing "Despicable Me," SpongeBob
SquarePants and the Bikini Bottom characters,
Diego and Dora the Explorer, and the crew from


the movie "Hop," plus a raft of smaller ones with
breakout characters like the villainous Vector from
"Despicable Me" and SpongeBob's buddy, Patrick
the starfish. They're accompanied by a couple
hundred dancers and other street performers in
a rockin' joyful mid-afternoon parade that stops
twice for performances, on the "streets" of New
York and Hollywood.
Nightfall brings Universal's Cinematic Spec-
tacular, a tribute to a century of movie-making by
Universal Pictures. Scenes from classic Universal
films like "E.T.," "Jurassic Park" and "Franken-
stein," as well as current movies "Battleship" and
"Snow White and the Huntsman," are projected
on waterfalls over the central lagoon. There is a
triumphal feel to the show, which is narrated by
Morgan Freeman and accompanied by fireworks,
dancing fountains and a medley of movie tunes.
The clips are clearer than you'd expect and vis-
ible from both sides of the waterfalls, but some
are so brief that you might not recognize them
before the next excerpt takes over the screen.
Even so, you don't need to be a hard-core movie
buff to enjoy the show. As with the parade, you'll
want to secure a spot next to the lagoon early.
But don't expect to be able to sit once the show
starts unless you're right at a railing or the water's
edge; most of the crowd will be on their feet.
Starting time for Cinematic Spectacular depends
on when it gets dark, but it's the event that closes
the park.

Outside the park's gates, Hollywood Drive-In
Golf at Universal CityWalk opened this spring. It
features two 18-hole miniature golf courses, one
with a horror movie theme (haunted mansion,
cemetery) and one with a sci-fi theme (towering
robot, giant space worm). Although it's family
oriented, it's open way past kids' bedtime, from
8 p.m. to 2 p.m. Cost: $13.99 adults, $11.99
children 3 to 9.
Spider-Man, a groundbreaking 3D ride when
Universal's Islands of Adventure opened in 1999,
was updated early in the year. The ride track,
the cars and the story line remain basically the
same. But it has been reanimated with Infitec
3-D projection, 4K high-definition imaging and
new audio, and the images updated, making it
one of the best rides around.The reanimation
added deeper, richer detail, although the scenery
changes so quickly that it's hard to pin down
the new detail (Universal says you can see the
stitching on Spider-Man's glove and people in the
windows of buildings if you look closely enough).

Celebrate Swiss week


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It's not as if you wanted to get Swiss food at
the Saltwater Caf6, you couldn't. After all, Chef
Rolf, the owner, is a native of Switzerland and
keeps Swiss favorites on his menu year-round.
But it isn't every day that an American gets to
celebrate Swiss National Day. Beginning Friday,
you will have your chance.
For the 17th year, the Saltwater Caf6 is holding
its Swiss Festival, which will culminate with the
celebration of Swiss National Day on Aug.1.
Chef Rolf said that day is like a Swiss Indepen-
dence Day.
"It's kind of like the Fourth of July is in the
United States," he said. "We want to make it a
popular day around here, too."
He said that the event at the Saltwater is a
"food festival," and he has packed it full of authen-
tically Swiss food, drinks and fun.
"On Friday, we will have a kick-off party with
Oldies 108 (radio)," he said. "In the front of the
restaurant, we will be doing a beer tasting."
Saturday's Wine Lover's Night will feature tasting
with Swiss wines. Because Swiss wines are mainly
produced in just the western and southern regions
of Switzerland, they are not so readily available
in America. Chef Rolf has a spacious wine cellar,
though, and all the wines you try and enjoy at the
tasting party will be available for purchase at the
Saltwater Caf6. On Wine Lover's Night, the bottles
will be priced from $10 to $20 off.
Sunday will be the popular Swiss brunch.
'We always have the authentic Swiss brunch,"
Chef Rolf said. "People love our shredded pota-

And if you pay attention, you'll spot Spider-Man's
co-creator, Stan Lee, in a couple of cameo ap-
pearances.
Also new: Universal's water park, Wet'n Wild,
opened Blastaway Beach, with 15 water slides
and more than 100 soakers, jets, waterfalls and
water cannons last week. And on CityWalk, Blue
Man Group has a new show focusing on "the
world's obsession with cutting-edge technology."
DISNEY
Magic Kingdom opened the first phase of its
Fantasyland expansion this spring, bringing back
older attractions that have been rethemed or
newly detailed in the Storybook Circus section:
the first of two Dumbo the Flying Elephant rides
- this one is the first Dumbo to run clockwise, the
other to open in July, will turn counter-clockwise,
as is traditional; The Barnstormer at Goofy's
Wiseacre Farm, a gentle family coaster, re-
themed as The Barnstormer featuring the Great
Goofini; and the Fantasyland Train Station, a stop
for the Walt Disney World Railroad, as well as
the spot where Dumbo and the rest of the circus
comes to town.
Coming next to Fantasyland: the Casey Jr.
water play area and the second Dumbo.
Most exciting to Fantasyland fans, however,
are two attractions opening late this year: Under
the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, and
Enchanted Tales with Belle of Beauty and the
Beast. They are set in castles with landscaping

The brunch is just $12.99."
Monday's and Tuesday's specials will feature
seafood favorites. You can enjoy Happy Hour all

ster for $16.99. On Tuesday, there is a Steam Pot
Party for $16.99 or $26.99 for a steam pot for two.
For the big day, on Aug.1, the Swiss wines will
be featured again in a tasting from 5 p.m. until
7 p.m. and there will be ladies night specials
beginning at 6 p.m.
Chef Rolf said that on the special Swiss Week
menu, there are several favorites for which the

rock, whether it is sculpted to echo the foreboding
character of the Beast or the warm and happy
nature of the Seven Dwarfs (except Grumpy, of
course).They are surrounded by forest, for, as
Imagineer Chris Beatty says, "If you think back
about all our stories, the princess always finds
herself in the forest, she has her adventure and
eventually makes her way back to the castle."
Journey of the Little Mermaid, which opened
at California Adventure Park at Disneyland last
year, is a sweet ride built around one of Disney's
iconic princesses, Ariel. Mechanically, the cars
and track layout are set up much like the Haunted
Mansion, with clamshell-shaped cars that move
relatively slowly through the grottoes of Prince
Eric Castle. The scenes features scores of anima-
tronic characters and are set to the popular music
of the movie.
Nearby is Beast Castle, which will house one
of Disney World's largest restaurants, Be Our
Guest, also opening in late 2012. Its three dining
rooms will be the ballroom where Belle and the
Beast danced, the West Wing where the enchant-
ed rose is kept (and which will have a holographic
rose losing its petals), and a room that celebrates
the other characters from the movie. Gaston's
Tavern "a manly space," Beatty called it -
which will sell snacks and beverages (although
not alcoholic ones), will also open this year.

He said customers also love the veal Zurich,

Pirate Fest


The edgier side of Venice Theatre


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre presents the "infamous
guerilla theatre troupe" in the "Random
Acts Cabaret" now through Aug. 25.
"Not for the faint of heart," said guest director
Kelly Woodland.
In its seventh decade, Venice Theatre is not
just another community theatre. Most do not
produce much in the way of what would be con-
sidered "Adult subject matter."
Considered one of the top three of some
10,000 community theaters in the United States,
Venice Theatre has close to 30 paid employ-
ees, a technical apprentice program, internship
with Berea College in Kentucky, summer stock
program, concert series, educational program,
two theater spaces and a schedule of productions
that includes far more than musicals.
Some patrons may think that the summer stock
show, 'The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" is as
edgy as theater should be.
Under the direction of Woodland and Venice The-
atre's producing director Allan Kollar, "Random Acts
Cabaret" is designed to give actors and audience
the opportunity to perform in and produce shows not
normally to be found on community stages.
According to Woodland, these shows contain
adult subject matter and language and might
even contain partial nudity not your typical
Venice Theatre fare.
A press release from the theater described
Random Acts Cabaret as "an eclectic evening of
edgy songs, monologues, and scenes."
Woodland said the history of Random Acts dates
to 1994 when a group of actors presented readings
at Main Book Store in Sarasota before moving to the
city's Broadway Bar to "stage full productions" The
developed a following by presenting such works as
"Road to Nirvana" by Arthur Kopit and the comedy,
"Dearly Departed "That show has been produced
on Venice Theatre's main stage in years past to
appreciative audiences.


Jessica Szempruch, Rik Robertson and Dorian
Boyd in "Random Acts."
This incarnation of the troupe has added
music, edgy music, even naughty music such as
"Sodomy" from the Broadway musical, "Hair."
The troupe, in addition to Woodland and
Kollar, includes music director Peter Madpak
and performers Steve O'Dea, Ross Boehringer,
Kristofer Geddie, Jenny Martin, Gianna Campo,
Kim Kollar, Nancy Denton, Jessica Szempruch,
Rik Robertson and Dorian Boyd.
"Random Acts" is the first of four off-beat musi-
cals scheduled in the Pinkerton from now through
March. Coming next is 'The Rocky Horror Show"
Oct. 12-Nov. 3, "MidLife! The Crisis Musical Nov.
30-Dec. 16 and "The Great American Trailer Park
Musical Feb. 6-March 9. "Random Acts Cabaret"
takes the place of a previously announced pro-
duction of "Hair" which has been postponed.
Performances will be at 8 p.m. Thursday
through Sundays through Aug. 25. Tickets are $25
for adults and $13 for students, general admis-
sion.
Order tickets at www.venicestage.com or call
the box office at 941-488-1115.
Venice Theatre is at 140 W.Tampa Ave. on the
island in downtown Venice.

'Best Little Whorehouse in Texas'

fills Venice Theatre's main stage


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Twenty thespians will fill Venice Theatre
with music and mirth beginning this eve-
ning when "The Best Little Whorehouse in
Texas" opens.
Playing through Aug. 5 on the main stage, the
theater's summer stock production of the 1978
Broadway hit musical features a mix of high
school and college students selected for the
theater's summer stock program with a few adult
performer/mentors and, for the first time, two
student interns from Berea College. The interns,
Brianna Perry and Galen Velonis, are seniors at
the college in Berea, Kentucky where they both
have dual majors that include theater.
The two-story house with front porch was
nearly complete last week as the theater's regular
construction crew volunteers joined forces with
the summer stock students to bring all the techni-
cal elements of the production together in time
for the opening. Stock players work primarily on
the show during evening rehearsals but do tech
work and even some promotional work earlier in
the day.
Perry said they arrive about 10 a.m. and
usually stay until about 9 in the evening. With the
opening of the show, they also will have perfor-
mances on Saturday and Sunday.
The story is based on an actual Texas brothel
which managed to stay in business for about 70
years in Grange, Texas by minding its business.
The two women who owned it during those years
protected their "girls" even as they protected their
town by supporting local businesses. When a
crusading TV reporter decided to make an issue
of the legality of the enterprise, sparks fly in


several directions. Tony DeNiro who gave a stellar
performance as Judas in last summer's hit "Jesus
Christ, Superstar" and followed that up with the
role of Huck Finn in the theater's fall production
of "Big River," portrays the crusading reporter
Mevin P Thorpe. DeNiro's father, Phil DeNiro, also
is in the show, portraying the governor and C. J.
Scruggs. Toni's sister Teri plays Durla, one of the
"girls" in the house and his mother Linda plays
Miss Wulla Jean and CJ's wife.
.Other principals in the show are Cara Herman
(Mona Stangley), Neil Kasanofsky (Sheriff Ed
Earl Dodd), Syreeta banks (Jewel), Charlotte
Crowley (Doatsey Mae), Dana Kitson (Senator
Wingwoah/Mayor Rufus Poindexter) and Travis
Rose (Edsel Mackey). Portraying the ladies of the
house are: Allie Campbell (Beatrice), Perry as
Linda Lou, Chastiti Morgan as Taddy Jo, Hogan
Miller as Eloise, Karli Cole as Angel, Megan
Bartek as Dawn and Imogene Charlene, Sally
Norsworthy as Ryby Rae, Sarah Blinkhorn as
Ginger and Sydney Deal as Shy Portraying the
Melvin Thorpe Singers, Aggies and Angelettes
are: Ashley Jackson, Kristin Pinkerton, Brooke
Treat, Maggie Courter, Courtney McMillan, Sean
Neary, Jazmyn Ortega, Zach Herman, Juan Silva,
Bobby Stone, Velonis, Jonathan Hall, Juan Silva,
Scott Mersinger, Sean Neary, Zach Herman, Allie
Campbell and Hogen Miller.
Brad Wages is the director, with musical direc-
tion by Michelle Kasanofsky, set design by John
Andzulis, costumes by Nicholas Hartman and
stage management by Lisa Million.
Music and lyrics are by Carol Hall and the
original book is by Larry L. King and Peter
Masterson.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $13 for students.

Burgundy Square Cafe


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When Chuck Cyr decided to open the
Burgundy Square Cafe in Venice last
year, as someone who had already
owned several restaurants, he knew exactly what
he wanted to do with this one.
"My philosophy is that everyone is going to
pre-packaged, pre-made food," he said. "I wanted
to get everyone back into 'made with care' and
'made with pride' the way it's supposed to be
done."
He said it was frustrating to go out to eat and
be given what was obviously previously frozen
food, and he vowed to do it differently in his new
place. So at Burgundy Square Cafe, you can
be assured that the spinach in your florentine
omelette is fresh and the chicken in your almond
chicken has never been inside a freezer. And Cyr
said that makes a big difference.
"Everything is made from scratch," he said. "It's
the good comfort food we used to have."
Food like meatloaf sandwiches, baked fresh
daily from Cyr's own personal recipe. He said that
during season this past year, he cooked more
than 30 pounds of meatloaf a day.
"People also love our New England seafood,"
he said. "Everyone says we have the best fried
clams, haddock and lobster."
Though he hasn't been open that long, Cyr
said he has not had trouble filling the chairs in his
80-seat restaurant. As a matter of fact, he already
has expansion on his mind. Burgundy Square
Cafe is accessed from a brick courtyard off of
Miami Avenue, and just across the courtyard from
the entrance is another space for rent.
"I'm trying to get approval to lease the space
across the breezeway for a bar," he said. "That will
give me 150 seats and a full bar."
As well as serving up breakfast, lunch and
dinner at his restaurant, Cyr also offers both
on- and off-site catering services.
"I'm a little different with my catering," he said.
"You come to me and give me a price that you
want to spend and I will create a menu to fit your
budget."
Cyr's special event catering calendar is already
being booked for the next two years, as word of
the down-home food and reasonable prices is


U
It-El
rn~


Burgundy Square Cafe has been open for almost a year.


spreading. He said he already has two wedding
receptions booked for next year's Memorial Day
weekend.
For the summer season, he has several ongo-
ing specials one for each meal of the day.
"I do a Monday through Friday 'buy a breakfast,
get one free,'" he said. "During lunch, you can get
a free beverage and for dinner Tuesday, Wednes-
day and Thursday, you can buy one entr6e and
get one at half off."
And for those of you with an eye for art, the
walls of Burgundy Square Cafe are lined with the
product of local artists, who use the restaurant
to showcase their talent and hopefully, sell their
work.
"We sell about seven pieces of art a week," Cyr
said. "I take no commission, I just tell my artists
to show something here that will catch people's
eyes."
The Burgundy Square Cafe is located at
227 W. Miami Ave., Venice.
For more information, call 941-451-8261.

'Caught in the Net'


PROVIDED BY MELISSA VOGT
BROADWAYPALM THEATRE
he Off Broadway Palm Theatre presents
"Caught in the Net"through Aug. 18.
Written by the "master of farce" Ray
Cooney, this comedy is the sequel to last sum-
mer's hit "Run For Your Wife," which played to
sold-out crowds and received rave reviews from
theatre patrons and critics alike.
This hysterical play once again follows the
antics of London cab driver John Smith, the
two-timing taxi driver who keeps two separate
lives, complete with two separate families. His
teenage children, a girl from one family and a
boy from the other, get acquainted in an online
chat room. They decide to meet in person and
John's already hectic life shifts into high gear
as he tries to keep his double life a secret. He
enlists the help of his best friend Stanley, who
invents multiple "cover stories" that grow until
they get wildly out of control...and then when
Stanley's slightly crazy father arrives, things
really get absurd.
The role of Smith will once again be played
by Southwest Florida favorite, Victor Legarreta
and the role of one of his wives, Mary Smith,


will again be played by his real-life wife, Kelly
Legarreta. Audiences may remember Victor from
numerous main stage and Off Broadway Palm
productions. Along with working here at Broadway
Palm, Victor and Kelly were both very involved
with The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater on
Sanibel Island where they starred in numerous
productions. Victor was also the Artistic Direc-
tor for The Off Broadway Palm and the Artistic
Producer for the Schoolhouse Theater for
many years. Also in the cast is The Off Broad-
way Palm's Artistic Producer Paul Bernier, local
actors Christopher Brent, Rachael Endrizzi and
Jenny Smith and newcomer Matt Reed.
The Off Broadway Palm Theatre is an
intimate 98-seat general admission theatre, lo-
cated in the main lobby of Broadway Palm Dinner
Theatre. With no seat further than 25 feet away
from the stage, you become part of the show.
Performances are Wednesday through Sunday
evenings with selected matinees. Ticket prices
range from $28 to $49 with group discounts
available for parties of 20 or more. Tickets can
be reserved by calling 239-278-4422, at www.

at 1380 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers.

The Lollicake Queen


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The concept of lollipop cakes is nothing new,
but the fact that you can walk into a shop
that sells only the cakes and can choose
from dozens of different flavors is a novel idea.
"It's (the cake pop) been around since the
1950s," said Erin Zolner, co-owner of The
Lollicake Queen," but we just perfected it"'
Indeed, The Lollicake Queen, started about a
year and a half ago by Zolner and her sister Amy
Nichols, is something pretty special. The bright
little shop on Hillview Street in Sarasota has
glass cases filled with delectable and beautifully
decorated cake pops. Making all their recipes
from scratch and mixing up gourmet ingredients,
the two sisters are continuing a cooking tradition
they began as young girls.
'We always loved to bake," Zolner said. "And
our dad was a firefighter and used to love to cook
for us at home."
On any given day, you can walk into The Lol-
licake Queen and choose from 20 to 25 different
varieties of cake pops. Flavors such as coconut
macaroon, key lime, banana bread and choco-
late peanut butter may make your mouth water,
but Zolner said there is one favorite that stands
above the rest.

Sisters Amy Nichols and Erin Zolner are the
owners of The Lollicake Queen.
"Red velvet has been our most popular since
day one," she said. "The cream cheese frosting is
on the inside."
They also have seasonal flavors and usually
even have two or three vegan selections on hand,
for those who have dietary concerns.
If you've never had a cake pop, one of the
things that makes it especially good is that the
candy shell on the outside of the cake seals in
the moisture and the flavor. At the sisters' shop,
they hand scoop and hand roll each individual
cake before they put the stick in and dip it in the


This freshly made tray of strawberry-vanilla lollicakes is ready to go in the display case.

Custom chocolates to delight your sweet tooth


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
ome types of chocolate are meant to be
given away as gifts, and some types are
meant to be kept and eaten at home. Vicki
Viccora is making custom chocolates so good,
you will want to do both.
Though Viccora's company, NV Custom
Chocolates, has only been in business for two
years, her history with chocolates goes back
much further.
"My sister and I used to make them when
we were growing up in New York," she said. "We
would take them to people's houses and they
loved them."
As a grownup, Viccora spent about 20 years in re-
tail management before starting her own event-plan-
ning company As part of her service, she offered
her custom chocolates to customers. They became
so popular she finally decided to concentrate on just
the chocolates.
'What makes my chocolates special is the
word 'custom,'" she said. "It's made to your order
specifications handmade, freshly made, locally
made and custom made, all just for you."'
NV Custom Chocolates offers hand-dipped
chocolates and handpainted molded chocolates.
Everything is made at the time it is ordered -
you won't find these on a shelf anywhere. The
chocolates come in dark, milk, white and peanut
butter -lavi :,rs ajnd i ie i I ,:, 1 Iiiini'gS Vicc:':ar will dip.

theme or color scheme.
"I probably have about three hundred molds in my
house," she said, "but I can also order molds for any
theme you want"
The great thing about ordering custom choco-
lates is you can address any season or occasion
you wish. Want a platter of chocolate goodies to
take as a hostess gift to a Christmas party? How
about some special take-home treats from a birth-
day party? When your chocolates are designed
just for you, the possibilities are limitless.
"I can even do favors and thank-yous for galas,
fundraisers and receptions,"'Viccora said."I can also
put your company logo on a piece of chocolate for
you to give to your clients"'
Because NV Custom Chocolates is still a fairly
new company, Viccora is continuing the process
of implementing some of her many services.
One of her most fun ideas is the chocolate party.
"My chocolate party is when I will help you and
your friends make your own chocolates," she said.
"I'll have two or three boxes, with varying sizes and
prices, and you can fill your box with the chocolates
you make"
One of the most popular services she offers is
sure to be the chocoholic club.
"It's the same concept as a fruit-of-the-month
club," she said. "Every month, they get choco-
lates. It's a great gift idea, and it can be either a
monthly thing or seasonal and birthday."

Blue Heron Pines: A Natural Wonder


If you want to play golf in less time and with perhaps less frustration, Blue Heron Pines in Punta Gorda is a course well worth considering. An 18-hole, par-60 executive
course, Blue Heron Pines is semi-private, offering both memberships and pay-as-you-go daily fees. Both walkers and carts are permitted at all times of the day.
"It's an exciting, fun track to play, yet it's easy to walk it," said Bill Itschner, manager of the course and surrounding community. An abundance of water throughout the
course makes it both challenging and beautiful. Maintaining the course's rustic, natural beauty is something Itschner has worked hard to achieve.
Like other area courses, Blue Heron Pines was hit hard by Hurricane Charley in 2004. But unlike other courses that had all the damaged trees removed, Itschner insisted on
keeping the bent and downed trees that were still living.
The result is a course with trees that are natural wonders in their own right. Some are so bent you can't help but know which way the hurricane blew. Others stretch across
the ground, determined trees with winding trunks exploding into robust foliage.


Purple jacarandas surround creeks and ravines, while several stone formations add to the eclectic mix.


Blue Heron Pines sits in the midst of a community by the same name. The original, nine-hole course was called Emu Lakes, and the community Casa del Mar. While many
courses have alligators on their grounds, Emu Lakes actually had emus.
Thirteen years ago, American Land Lease bought the community and golf course, renamed it, and added the front nine holes. Three greens have been rebuilt since Hurricane
Charley hit, and two more will be rebuilt this year.


"It's an ongoing process that will continue until all the greens have been rebuilt," said Itschner.


The clubhouse was also rebuilt and expanded to 9,000 square feet, with a commercial kitchen, deck, game rooms and meeting rooms added around the original center
clubhouse. In addition to the golf course, the community includes shuffleboard, horse shoes and an aqua driving range that utilizes floater golf balls. Lessons are also
available.
Blue Heron Pines golf course is located at 29225 S. Jones Loop Road in Punta Gorda. For information or tee times call 941-637-6191.

Dry macular degeneration

usually progresses slowly


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am 72. Recently my eye
doctor told me I have the
start of age-related macular
degeneration. At first she
said I had the eyes of a
60-year-old, until she took
another look. She recom-
mended vitamins and sun-
glasses that give ultraviolet
protection. I do not want to
lose my sight. Is there any
more I can do? -VD.
ANSWER: Macular
degeneration comes in two
varieties, wet and dry. The
dry variety accounts for
80 percent to 90 percent of
cases. It usually progresses
very slowly. You must have
very minor changes the
doctor had to take a second
look to see them. Wet
macular degeneration can
advance rapidly. Doctors
have more drugs for the
wet version than they do
for the dry one.
The macula is a small
circle of cells in the middle
of the retina at the back of
the eye. It's responsible for
fine vision, the kind needed
to read a newspaper, watch
television and drive. Even
when macular vision has
gone, vision off to the sides
remains.
In 2001, the results of
AREDS-1 (age-related
eye disease study) were
published. It promoted the
use of vitamin C, vitamin
E, beta carotene (a form of
vitamin A), zinc and copper
to slow the progression of
moderate macular degen-
eration to a more advanced
form. This combination
is found in drugstores
throughout North America.
In 2013, the AREDS-2
study is scheduled for
publication. Changes have
been made in the vitamin
and mineral composition
of the vitamin-mineral
pill, and it now includes
omega-3 fatty acids, lutein
and zeaxanthin in the
mix. They're supposed to
preserve macular integrity.
If you want to jump the
gun on the proposed new
formulation, Occuvite
PresserVision with lutein
and zeaxanthin is available
in drugstores. Sunglasses
that protect against ultra-
violet rays are a sensible
practice.
The booklet on macular
degeneration explains this
process in greater detail.
To obtain a copy, write: Dr.
Donohue No. 701, Box
536475, Orlando, FL 32853-
6475. Enclose a check or
money order (no cash) for
$4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the
recipient's printed name
and address. Please allow
four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My wife gives me a hard
time about drinking Diet
ooo


Dr. Donohue
Readers may

Donohue at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475
Coke. She says it's not
good for me because
of the carbonation and
other ingredients. She says
anything that cleans a
toilet can't be good for your
stomach. I am 72. I started
drinking Diet Coke less
than a year ago. I normally
drink one a day. Do you feel
this is harmful? J.E.
ANSWER: Tell your wife
that if she could obtain a
cup of stomach acid and
digestive juices and put a
nail in the mix, it would dis-
solve the nail in short order.
If the stomach can tolerate
acid and digestive enzymes,
it can tolerate Coke.
Diet Coke has no sugar.
That's a big plus for it. It
should not foster weight
gain. That has been
disputed, but I find that
weight gain from drinking
Diet Coke hard to believe.
It's also been said that it
increases strokes and heart
attacks. Authors of that
study maintain that there
might be an association.
They don't say it causes
them. Another inscrutable
suggestion. Readers, please
don't write to me about
aspartame, the artificial
sweetener in these soft
drinks. It's been found safe
by many regulatory agen-
cies throughout the world.
I can't believe that a Diet
Coke a day harms health.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Every couple of months,
someone writes to you
about a chronic cough that
defies treatment. Please
read the attached article
from a medical journal. I
had a cough for 25 years.
Amitriptyline broke that
cycle, and I have been free
of cough for four years.
- G.J.
ANSWER: According to
the article from a reputable
medical journal, a chronic
cough, resistant to all med-
icines, is sometimes due
to damage to nerves to the
throat and larynx (voice-
box). I have never heard
this discussed. The dose
of amitriptyline is low, 10
milligrams at bedtime.
The article is from the
journal Otolaryngology-
Head and Neck Surgery,
by Robert W. Bastain,
M.D. et al., Volume 135,
No.1, July 2006. Chronic
coughers might want
to mention it to their
doctors. Thanks, G.J.

Build a better burger


Dear Readers: Summer
is in full swing, and that
means barbecues, picnics,
camping and visits to parks.
These usually include
hamburgers and hot dogs.
Here are a couple of hints to
help make a better burger,
and with a twist:
Add taco seasoning
to the meat, then add
Monterey Jack or jalapeno
cheese. Serve with salsa, ja-
lapeno slices, guacamole or
sour cream as condiments.
Add a dry ranch or
Italian dressing mix to the
meat. Serve with blue-
cheese crumbles, roasted
garlic and red onions.
Add bits of Italian sau-
sage, Parmesan and minced
garlic to the meat. Serve
with tomato sauce or pesto
and mozzarella cheese.
If you have a "recipe"
you'd like to share, please
send it in, and I'll try to print
some of the most unusual.

Carrot hints
Dear Heloise: I have
always wondered if carrots
should be peeled before
eating. Sonya D. in
Cincinnati
Well, this is a question
that does not have a
definitive answer. If you are
eating a raw carrot, scrub-
bing the carrot well under


Hints from Heloise

running water and peeling
should suffice. If the car-
rots are certified organic,
the peel can be left on.
It is recommended by
major producers of carrots
to always wash and peel
carrots before eating; the
only exception is organic
carrots or baby carrots
(which are actually regular
carrots, peeled and cut
down to a small size).
Since most of the
vitamins are not in the
skin, peeling does not
really affect the nutrition.
Another interesting carrot
hint: More vitamin A is
released when you cook
carrots than when you eat
them raw! Heloise

Easy open
Dear Heloise: This hint
saves time and avoids a
mess when opening cans
of refried beans, thick
(condensed Heloise)
soups, tomato paste,
etc. After removing the
top, turn the can upside
down in a bowl. Using a
bottle opener, puncture
the bottom of the can. The
contents of the can will
slide right out. Liz S., via

Texting with friends leads MALLARD FILLMORE

girl into chat room trouble


DEAR ABBY: I'm a
12-year-old girl and I hope
you will print this because
it's about something impor-
tant. I have an iPod Touch.
My friends and I wanted to
text, so I asked my mom if I
could download a program
to talk to my friends. She
said it was OK.
I really like "The Hunger
Games," so I went into
a "Hunger Games" chat
room and started talking
with some boys there. The
next thing I knew there
were three men texting me,
asking me questions about
sex and asking for pictures.
(It started with them asking
if I was fat, and when I said
no, I was asked to send a
picture of me in a bathing
suit to prove it.) Then they
wanted me to send some
without the top. I felt really
pressured.
I got so scared I couldn't
sleep, so I had to tell my
mom. She helped me delete
my account and told me
it was dangerous, but she
always loves me. It was hard
for me to tell her because I
was scared she was going to
be mad.
I want your readers to
know this can happen and
there are chat room apps
for iPods. I'm smart. I get
good grades in school, but
these guys almost tricked
me into doing something I
didn't want to do. I still have
trouble sleeping because
I'm afraid one of them will
see me on the street and
do something to me. What
should I do? -TERRIFIED
FROM TESTING
DEAR TERRIFIED: I'm
glad you took the time to
write. You are a very lucky
girl. You are fortunate to
have a good relationship
with your mother and that
you could go to her right
away when you realized you
were in over your head.
Remember, once some-
thing is on the Web it's there
for good. You are intelligent
enough that things didn't
progress any further.
Thank you for wanting to
warn other young people
about your experience.
Adults can lecture about the
dangers of communicat-
ing with strangers on the
Internet, but it's easy to tune
them out. It's also easy to
forget that the same rules
apply in the virtual world


Dear Abby

as apply in the real world.
If something makes you
uncomfortable, listen to
your gut and leave the area.
I hope other young
women will learn from what
happened to you and recog-
nize how careful they must
be in chat rooms because as
your experience illustrates,
not everyone is who they
pretend to be.
Bottom line: If anyone
wants to text or chat and
things progress in a way that
makes you uncomfortable,
it's time to carefully consider
whether to proceed or not.
Immediately show the
text or chat to someone (a
parent or an older, more
knowledgeable friend)
and ask for an opinion.
Remember, you have the
ability to block the person at
any time. Do not let anyone
- whether you know him
or her or not force you to
do ANYTHING.
DEAR ABBY: I am a
healthy, active older man
who is in love with a woman
my age. Coincidentally, we
are in-laws. Her husband
and my wife are both de-
ceased. Having known each
other for many years, we are
very close and have found
renewed happiness with
each other. We are in love.
Our adult children tell us
we are not being rational.
Our peers see nothing
wrong with it. Do we ignore
our children's advice and
seek happiness together
for the next few years?
Please tell me something
that makes sense. -
CONFUSED RETIRED
ENGINEER
DEAR CONFUSED:
You have raised your kids
and buried your wife. You
deserve to be happy. What
makes sense is you and this
lady you have known for
years being happy together.
Your children's attitude is
what's irrational.


"And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto
the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there
was a great calm." Mark 4:39.
Is your life in great turmoil? There is one who can
bring you great calm in the midst of the storm. Turn it
over to Jesus.

Opening lead: King of 6,

The power of the trump suit cannot
be emphasized too strongly. It was
put to full use on this hand from a
rubber bridge game.
The auction was textbook. North's
jump to three spades was a limit
raise, and South held ample to justify
a raise to game.
West led the king of clubs and
there were only seven fast winners.
Since chances of setting up extra
tricks in the red suits were slight,


declarer elected to play the hand as a
crossruff. South's technique is worth
studying.
Declarer won the opening lead in
hand and cashed the two red aces,
ending in hand. A diamond was
ruffed with the three of trumps, and a
heart was ruffed with the deuce.
When both low ruffs won, the
contract could no longer be defeated.
Declarer continued with a high
crossruff, ruffing two diamonds in
dummy with the king and jack and
two hearts in hand with the ace and
queen. That gave declarer nine tricks
- three side-suit aces and six ruffs,
three in each hand. Although the
master trump, the ten, was with the
defenders, the eight in dummy and
the nine in hand were sure to produce
one more trick. Declarer led a
diamond from hand and ruffed with
the eight. If it held, it was the
fulfilling trick; if it was overruffed,
the nine would be declarer's tenth
trick.
Could the contract have been
defeated? No. A trump lead is best,
but South can win cheaply in hand
and still score three ruffs in each
hand, collecting in all seven trumps
and the three side-suit aces.
