Two arrested

for public sex

STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office arrested two people
on Tuesday after investigating
reports of nudity near the
Legacy Trail at Nokomis Com-
munity Park for the past two
days.
On Monday, a witness
reported that a nude man
entered the community center
and walked around the facility
before exiting, putting on red
shorts and riding away on a
bicycle. Deputies searched the
area but were unable to locate
the suspect.
This morning, deputies
were again called to the park,
where they found a man and a
woman having sex under the
gazebo on the grounds.
Deputies arrested Adam Piz-
zolato, 48, and Rita Brunsell,
53, who both say they are

ARRESTED 13


Council OKs

staff moves
By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Prior to unveiling his first
draft city budget last week,
City Manager Ed Lavallee
received council's approval to
fill a number of key leadership
positions.
Over the past five years, the
city has lost 100 employees
due to the economy almost
a quarter of the workforce.
Some of that "has come from
the top," Lavallee said. "Two
departments have no direc-
tor, and others are suffering
from a lack of administrative
support."
Most of the person-
nel changes go into effect
immediately.
Three of four are
promotions.
Lavallee found the money
to fund the changes from
within existing budgets for
the current fiscal year, so a
budget amendment won't be
necessary.
The positions are written
into next year's budget, as well.
The public works depart-
ment, which hasn't had its
own director since Larry
Heath retired five years ago,
has been led by a triad of
administrators.
The city will conduct a
search to fill that position,
and promote Office Manager
Judy Difabbio to department
coordinator to better organize
department tasks and projects

Mad about mowing


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

For some people, there's
nothing worse than an
unkempt lawn.
Ditto for an unsightly city or
county right of way.
Venice leaders are propos-
ing their own solution to high
grass in and outside the city.
Unhappy with the job
vendors are doing to mow
county grass around the city,
Mayor John Holic offered this
proposal: Divvy up the job



Thaxtor

By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

Jon Thaxton lashed out
against opponent Kathy Dent
again last week this time
over raises in the Sarasota
County Supervisor of Elec-
tions Office.
Thaxton, who is running
for the supervisor post after
a state Supreme Court rul-
ing on term limits in May
prevented him from seeking
a fourth term on the Sarasota
County Commission, said he
had evidence that incumbent
Dent gave her staff raises in
2010 and 2011 after telling the
county commissioners she
had not done so over the last
five years.
During a June 12 budget
workshop, commissioners
reviewed the constitutional
officers' department budgets,
including Dent's. Dent, who is
running for a fourth term in
an office not covered by the
court ruling, told the commis-
sion about the lack of raises
in her office during her initial
budget presentation.
"We have not given raises
in my office and we, like (Tax
Collector) Barbara Ford-
Coates and the sheriff, really
value our people," Dent said
at the workshop. "They're
wonderful people and we do
a lot of training and a lot of
cross-training ... and they're
certainly worth keeping."
County Commissioner
Nora Patterson then asked
Dent specifically if she'd given
any raises in the last five
years, to which Dent replied,
"No raises, but I've given an
occasional bonus. We have


among local vendors while the
county negotiates the job with
a single vendor.
The county has had trouble
with maintenance, and fired
its last vendor.
"When they dismissed
the maintenance crew they
had," said Mayor John Holic,
"they didn't really replace it
with anybody. I called a local
landscaping outfit (who said
they could) straighten out the
city in one month and make it
look great."
Council agreed to place


mowing on the next meet-
ing agenda with county
commissioners.
In the meantime, council
adopted a new ordinance that
allows the city to step in and
mow residential or business
grass that gets too high.
After warnings, the city can
now go ahead and ticket the
owner and mow any high
grass. The city can place a lien
on the property if the work
goes unpaid for too long.
Prior to the new ordinance,
the city code enforcement


board handled such cases. It
was often stymied by difficult-
to-contact, out-of-state
property owners, many of
whom were in foreclosure.
Property owners can still
appeal to the code enforce-
ment board if they choose.
Holic was onboard with the
new ordinance but told city
staff he would not tolerate a
"double standard" city prop-
erty remaining unmowed while
residents were being ticketed.

be really nice for them to have

"They got bonuses because
they worked so hard on the
redistricting campaign," Dent


said when asked last week
about the six in her office who
received them. "It was not a
raise and we haven't given
any raises maybe for the last
four years because the county
was saying they're not giv-
ing raises. As a duly elected
constitutional officer, I have


the option of giving bonuses."
Thaxton asked Skip Parish,
who has worked with the
federal government and whom
Thaxton met while working on
a canvassing board to review

FEMA center announces last call

FEMA staff are available at the Disaster Recovery

By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

The countywide FEMA
disaster recovery center
set up at Venice City Hall
will close its doors this
weekend.
FEMA spokeswoman
Mary Margaret Walker
confirmed Tuesday the
center will close Saturday
at 6 p.m.
The center, set up to


process claims and answer
questions about damage
caused by Tropical Story
Debby in June opened
Thursday.
Thirty-four individu-
als had walked through
the doors as of the end
of Monday, Walker said.
Another 197 telephone
and email inquiries were
taken from throughout
Sarasota County.
So far, $21 million is


being paid out to Florida
residents and business
owners affected by Debby.
Of the $21 million,
FEMA allocated $16.5 mil-
lion directly and the
remaining $4.5 million
was paid out through
the Small Business
Administration.
Walker said $57,000
went to Sarasota County

back in the news
First it was Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation that rescued
the Venice 9/11 Memorial proj-
ect by offering to match roughly
$30,000 in contributions.
Now, Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce CEO John Ryan has
come to the aid of the project. On
behalf of the project organizer,
Ryan requested the city waive the
building permit fee of $698.
Memorial organizers were
turned down earlier by staff- a
surprise to some Venice City
Council members.
Council granted the request, and
also directed staff to review its policy
so that type of waiver request comes
before the council in the future.
"No entity will benefit from this
other than the community itself,"

Effective July 1, HB 503 prohibits

"While maintaining an
acceptable level of per-

to council, "the depart-

Passenger traffic up at SRQ


By JOSH SALMAN
BRADENTON HERALD

Sarasota Bradenton
International Airport
is bucking common
travel trends across the
state this summer, with
passenger traffic rising
considerably from a year
ago.
SRQ saw 95,439 pas-
sengers travel through
its terminal in June, an
increase of 9.6 percent
compared to the same
time last year, according
to data released by the
airport this week.
The positive momen-
tum comes in a month
that's historically one
of the worst for tourism
in Southwest Florida.
By comparison, Tampa
International Airport and
Southwest Florida Inter-
national Airport in Fort
Myers both were down
compared to June 2011.
Through six months of
the year, passenger traffic
at Southwest Florida
International trails the
previous year's pace by
6 percent while Tampa's
stayed relatively flat -
improving less than half
a percent, records show.
The increases at SRQ
also gain significance
with the permanent
departure of AirTran on
the horizon. The carrier,
which represents about
one-third of SRQ's total
passenger load with


about 360,000 passengers
last year, will be exit-
ing the airport Aug. 12
to focus on service in
Tampa.
The decision has been
estimated to deliver
a $1.2 million blow to
SRQ, which operates
on a $22 million annual
budget.
"The carriers that
operate in our market
increased SRQ traffic
numbers for the first six
months, proving jobs and
economic benefit to our
community," SRQ CEO
Rick Piccolo said in a
statement.
SRQ already has
recovered nearly 95 per-
cent of the total seats
lost when AirTran leaves,
including new flights to
Chicago, New York and
Atlanta. Delta Air Lines
also has made schedule
adjustments for the first
half of 2013 that will
provide direct, same-
plane service to increase
spring training access


for fans of the Pittsburgh
Pirates and Baltimore
Orioles. The daily flights
will operate in both
directions with a 40-min-
ute stop in Atlanta, the
airport announced.
Baltimore was among the
direct flights lost in the
AirTran pull out.
SRQ also launched
a marketing campaign
this summer aimed to
close a gap of 1.5 million
passengers a year or
70 percent of air travel-
ers between Manatee
and Sarasota who fly
through other airports.
The "Do You SRQ" cam-
paign is a community
pledge for businesses
and local organizations
to book with SRQ when-
ever feasible citing the
economic impact.
SRQ, which has no
taxing authority, gener-
ates nearly $1 billion in
total economic activity,
leading to 11,487 local
jobs and $314 million in
payrolls, records show.

The Sarasota Police
Department have
arrested a former Sara-
sota Memorial Hospital
employee who they say
stole the credit cards of
a man who died in the
SMH emergency room
last month.
According to an SPD
report, the victim passed
away in the ER at Sara-
sota Memorial June 10.
Within hours of his death,
according to police, Mar-
garet Melton Nunn, 53, of
the 1800 block of Barstow


Place, Sarasota, a patient
registration representa-
tive in the ER, allegedly
used three of the victim's
credit cards to buy airline
tickets, bridal shoes and
other items, and pay
phone bills, charging a
total of $1,186.
According to SMH
spokeswoman Kim
Savage, Nunn, who was
identified as a suspect by
the public safety officer
at the hospital, was
employed at the hospital
for three years.
"She was terminated on
June 29," Savage said.
During an interview


with a detective at the
Sarasota County Jail,
Nunn admitted she
copied down the victim's
driver's license informa-
tion and credit card
numbers before using
them to make purchases,
according to the report.
Nunn was charged with
identity theft and seven
counts of credit card fraud.
She posted $10,000 bond
and was released from jail.
Anyone with additional
information regarding the
case is asked to contact
SPD Detective Jack Carter
at 941-954-7070.

Florida Shores expands to Sarasota


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Venice's only com-
munity bank, Florida
Shores Bank Southwest,
is expanding, with two
employees to play key
roles in a new Sarasota
office opening in October.
Venice resident Pamela
Gaitens moves from the
main office, 500 North
U.S. 41 Bypass, to take a
major promotion to assis-
tant branch manager.
Well-known local banking
executive Matt DePalma
has been promoted to
senior vice president for
the new Sarasota market.
"From the launch
in 2007 we knew the
headquarters would be
in Venice, and to open
in Englewood, where
we had a branch of our

Florida Shores Bank Southwest President & CEO Jim Kuhlman,
left, has announced the promotions of Pamela Gaitens to
assistant branch manager and Matt DePalma to senior vice
president for the new Sarasota office to open this fall.


previous bank," said Jim
Kuhlman, president and
CEO. "Three years ago we
opened a branch in Fort
Myers. Ultimately, our
strategic plan's next step


was north to Sarasota
and the year after, 2013,
opening a branch in
Bradenton, and then let it
settle out."
The Sarasota branch,


at 1680 Fruitville Road
midway between U.S. 41
and U.S. 301, is currently
being remodeled with
a projected completion
in late September; it
will open early October.
Initially, Florida Shores
bank will occupy 5,000
square feet, and it has an
option on another 25,000
square feet.
Currently the bank
services a number of con-
dominium association
accounts on Longboat
Key, Siesta Key and Anna
Maria Island, but not
individual accounts.
"I'm sure these leaders
will grow it and we will
need to exercise the expan-
sion option," said Kuhlman.
"The bank is very
strong at promoting from
within, and Gaitens has
perpetuated our culture


with the level of service
we can deliver on a
consistent basis. Send-
ing her 20 miles north,
I know she will be a
disciple of that culture to
the four people who will
report to her in this major
promotion."
She had five years'
experience with SunTrust
and worked in local banks
until joining Florida
Shores in 2009.
DePalma has worked
in Venice, Sarasota and,
most recently, Engle-
wood, where he started
two years ago. At the time
it was bouncing along at
$6 million in deposits;
today it has $60 million,
said Kuhlman.
"His extraordinarily
good customer service
and sales skills will enable
us to go to a new market


where he has contacts in
very established centers
of influence," he said.
Florida Shores opened
in temporary offices in
2007 and was chartered
in November of that
year. The Venice office
was built in 2009, open-
ing in December. The
12,000-square-foot loca-
tion was intended to last
10 years, but four years
later all the offices are full.
With Bauer's top public
bank rating of five stars,
Florida Shores has 37
employees throughout the
three existing branches.
Plans are for six employ-
ees in Sarasota. Several
will be internal transfers,
creating hiring opportuni-
ties in Venice and Engle-
wood, said Kuhlman.

Need to shed your storage problems?


After five years of
operating their business
in Hayward, Wis., Adam
and Nicole Frisinger
came to Venice, where
with co-owner James
Tombaugh, they have
opened Backyard Solu-
tions, 260 Juniper Blvd.,
in the Sarasota Business
Park at the 1-75 Jacaranda
Boulevard interchange.
"Vacationing in Venice
for several years, we
realized there are greater
opportunities for expan-
sion here than up north,"
Nicole Frisinger said.
Predesigned models
are on display; however,
they custom design and
manufacture storage
sheds, playhouses and
playground sets. They


also supply wood or white
vinyl fencing. The com-
pany does all permitting.
Built to hurricane wind
and other code require-
ments, sheds typically
range from 8 feet square
and up and stand on a
composite wood resin
rot-resistant floor system
or a concrete slab base
"The site specific
engineering meets or
exceeds 160 mph Florida
hurricane specifications,"
said Nicole Frisinger.
Their installers deliver
and set up the shed on
your property usually
within one day, depend-
ing on the size. They
will paint it to match
your home. Roofs are
of shingle or steel. Each
shed has a "green"
imprint and a 50-year
warranty.
Since opening, they
have hired three installers
and will be looking for
an installation supervi-
sor as demand contin-
ues. Office hours are
8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.

decorating items, sofas,
and dining room sets,"
said Roberta Pettigrove,
co-owner. All items are on
consignment.
This is the fourth Fifi's
store to open in Venice,
following on the heels
of Fifi's Shoe and Purse
Boutique, 235 W Miami
Ave., which opened
recently. Business has
been better than expected
for its upscale purses,
jewelry and new and used
shoes, said Pettigrove.

Customers will soon see
major improvements at the
island Publix Super Market,
535 South Tamiami Trail.
The 11-year-old store
will start a major upgrade
to transform it to the new
modern store design, similar
to the most recently opened
local store at 345 Jacaranda
Blvd., in the Jacaranda Com-
mons Shopping Center.
"We expect the remodel
to begin sometime in early
September and we anticipate
it will take a few months to
complete," said Shannon Pat-
ten, Publix media and com-
munity relations manager.
The store, which employs
125 associates, will remain
open during the renova-
tion, with some of the more


extensive projects taking place
overnight, in an effort to avoid
disruptions for its customers.
A major change to this
location will be all-new
flooring. While the layout
of the departments will not
change, customers will also
notice new tile work, signs
and cases at each stop, said
Patten. In addition to paint
and d6cor changes, there will
also be updates to some of
the departments, including
reconfiguring the customer
service desk and registers.
As with the Jacaranda
store, the customer service
desk will be closer to the
entrance. It will have a new,
round configuration, while
still offering services such
as money transfers, lottery
tickets and check cashing.
The meat department
will have a full-service sushi


station, an offering that's
currently not available to
customers at this location.
A larger variety of products
will be offered throughout
the store, and the selection
of organic, natural and
earth-friendly items will be
expanded.
Customers will notice
changes to the pharmacy as
well, Patten said, as it will be
redesigned to give it more of
an open feel, similar to the
design in the new prototypes'
stores.
"Those customers at that
location are very loyal, and
we are excited to provide
them with an updated store
offering them the products
and service they want in an
environment they can enjoy,"
said Patten.

Technology


improves hip surgery


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Last month at Venice Regional
Medical Center, Dr. Michael
Jaquith was the first orthopedic
surgeon between Orlando and
Naples to perform a minimally
invasive MAKOplasty total hip
replacement using the RIO
Robotic Arm Interactive Orthope-
dic System.
This surgeon-controlled, highly
advanced robotic arm system
allows surgeons to attain the
level of consistent precision in
surgery that is a critical factor in
hip replacement. The accurate
placement and alignment of
implant components reduces the
likelihood of hip dislocation. It
allows for more consistency in leg
length, potentially decreasing the
need for a shoe lift. Additionally,
decreasing the risk of the implant
and bone abnormally rubbing
together likely improves the


useful life of the implant.
"Not only does it result in
a wonderful outcome for our
patients, it is exciting for the
small town of Venice to be at the
cusp of using the highest tech-
nology available to better patient
care," said Jaquith.
The hospital has six board-
certified orthopedic surgeons
performing MAKOplasty partial
knee resurfacing, a minimally
invasive treatment option for
adults living with early to mid-
stage osteoarthritis that has
not yet progressed to all three
compartments of the knee.
"Venice Regional Medical
Center is proud to be a leader in
robotics technology," said CEO
Pete Wozniak. "It is our mission
to improve the quality of life
of each and every one of our
patients. The MAKOplasty proce-
dure allows us to do just that."

Coyman looks to bring


stability to procurement


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER


When Ted Coyman Jr.
was promoted to Sarasota
County procurement
official recently, he had
two things on his mind:
bringing the purchasing
department back to its
successful ways, and forg-
ing a sense of continuity
among his staff.
"I think you're going to
see major stability because
people stay when they feel
like they're learning, they're
making headway, they're
accomplishing good things
and they feel like their work
has added value to the
county," said Coyman, who
previously was the county's
contract manager. "That's
certainly a climate that I
am fostering. I think we've
got a really good group
right now and a good mix
of people with a good mix
of backgrounds. They seem
to be working really well
together, and we're going to
take advantage of that."
Coyman, 55, has worked
for major defense contrac-
tor IAP World Services. His
position involved procure-
ment, contracting, organiz-
ing logistics and running
operations for things like
delivering blankets into
Pakistan for flood relief,
and call-retrievement
kits into Haiti. He's also
run service programs in
military bases throughout
Southwest Asia, and has
worked on camp construc-
tion projects in Africa
and the Afghan National
Police Training Program in
Afghanistan.
Coyman's experience
also includes time as con-
tract manager for the city
of Fort Myers. There he ran


all of the large solicitations,
such as work at the waste-
water treatment plant, the
downtown revitalization
program and professional
services. He has been in
the field with business
units helping them admin-
ister their contracts and
giving training on contract
administration since he
started with Sarasota
County last September.
"When we hired (former
procurement official)
Mark Thiele, Ted came in
a very close second," said
County Administrator
Randall Reid. "He's been
working with some of the
departments that have the
most activity, so he's got a
background that qualifies
him for the position. We
thought it was appropri-
ate that we consider him,
and I think he has the
personality and the drive
to succeed."
Coyman has obtained
accreditation as a certified
professional public buyer,
is a member of the Florida
Association of Public Pro-
curement Officials, and
has a security clearance
from the U.S. Department
of Defense. He said the
Procurement Department
recently made a hire from
Venice who has several
credentials, as well as

another employee who
previously worked for the
city of Cape Coral and
Fort Myers Beach.
Department staff goes
through ongoing pro-
curement training and
practical training, such
as components of lift
stations. If a client calls
and says a new lift-station
pump is needed, anyone
in the department will be
able to help.
Coyman said he has
two main focuses for the
department: prioritization
of work and reviewing and
updating documentation,
including the procurement
code. That document is in
the process of being rewrit-
ten, and is being reviewed
by other municipalities
around the state for input.
Once completed, the code
will be reviewed by the
legal department, and then
will be presented to county
commissioners for consid-
eration. Coyman can revise
the county's procurement
manual once the code is
adopted.
"We're off to a good
start," he said. "Things are
looking very good right
now."'

Insurance fees questioned


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

There are advantages
to having multiple finan-
cial experts in elected
office.
Venice City Council
pulled two run-of-the-
mill contracts from the
consent agenda last
week to take a closer
look at insurance consul-
tant fees.
What caught their
attention was the
dollar amount involved
($65,000 per year for the
insurance consultant
and $19,000 for a work-
ers' compensation third-
party administrator) and
length of the contracts
(three years).
Mayor John Holic
and Council Member
Bob Daniels, both with
finance backgrounds,
said the fees were too
high, bordering on
what the city would
pay if they hired a full
time insurance expert.
"I come from a
sales background,"
Holic said. "All these
things that used to be
high-commission are
no longer. Sixty-five
thousand seems to me
to be relatively high
if we compare that to

a multi-line insurance
company, perhaps from
(within) the city."
"I'm saying there is
leeway for a person
charging 4 or 5 percent
for overall costs. How
does that compare to
what Key Agency could
have provided, without
the $65,000 tacked on?
I think we are overpay-
ing," Holic said.
"My financial sniffer
tells me there is lots of
money here," Daniels
said. "These fees in
insurance ... they are
making lots of money.
If the policy is $900,000
and we can hire a
broker to get rid of this


middle guy and save
$120,000, we might end
up paying less for those
policies.
"I don't think it's
unreasonable to give you
to time to go back and
really check into this."
"Maybe that's got to
be thrown into the pot,"
Holic said, "when the
consultant is costing us
more than an employee."
Staff agreed to take
back a one-year contract
to Public Risk Insurance
Agency and Commercial
Risk Management to see
if the consultants would
sign off.

Cross-section of candidates seek committee posts


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Republican Party
election for state committee-
man and committeewoman
features eight candidates this
year, and they vary as widely
in age 29 to 70 as they
do in background from a
married couple and a former
Navy captain to the spouse of
a current state representative
and a former school principal.
The married candidates,
Walt and Sue Augustinowicz,
are joined by Jamie Miller,
Robert "Bob" Waechter and
Christian Ziegler on the
men's ballot and Darlene
"Dar" Harvey, Linda Long and
Kathleen "Casey" Pilon on the
women's. Voters may select
only one male and one female
candidate, who will each serve
a four-year term. The primary
election is Aug. 14.
Joe Gruters, chair of the
Sarasota County Republican
Party, said the state commit-
teeman and woman represent
all of the Republicans in the
county at the state level.
"In a nutshell, they're board
members of the state party,"
Gruters said. "They vote for
who the chairman of the state
is going to be or, when we
have the delegate selection
process, who they're going to
vote for there. They contribute
to the overall direction of the
party."
Gruters said the posts are
voluntary.
"They get no salary, but they
must travel around Florida
four times a year, for quarterly
meetings," he said.
The following is a brief
overview of each candidate:
Walt Augustinowicz, 44,
lives in Englewood. He has
served on the Republican
Executive Committee for
several years and has chaired
its policy committee for about
four years. He is the founder
of Identity Stronghold, a com-
pany that prevents electronic


pickpocketing, identity theft
and payment fraud by block-
ing personal information
broadcast by radio waves in
credit cards, passports and
other identity cards.
Why are you running and
what do you hope to accom-
plish if elected?
I want to make sure that
the state party and local party
are in better communica-
tion and doing a lot more on
fiscal conservative issues, to
make sure the party is always
sticking with its platform and
to make sure that the rules
and procedures are being
followed.
What sets you apart from
your fellow candidates?
The fact that my wife and
I are both running. The
Republican Party supports
traditional family values,
and we want to show that
having a husband and wife
team for the Sarasota County
area that can work together.
My wife and I have also built
a business together, a suc-
cessful local tech business in
Englewood, from the ground
up in the middle of a reces-
sion. We have the background
of knowing what businesses
need and don't need and
we think that experience
is important to promote in
Florida.



Jamie Miller, 44, lives in the
Bee Ridge/Clark Road area.
He has served as the executive
director of the Republican
Party of Florida and is the cur-
rent vice chair of the Republi-
can Party of Sarasota.
Why are you running
and what do you hope to
accomplish?
Party unity. Bringing in
people that are new to the
party, like the tea party and
9/12 groups. Also, we need to
balance those folks with those
who have been committed to
the party for a very long time.


I would like to ensure we don't
promote their people at the
expense of those who have
committed oftentimes the
majority of their adult lives to
the Republican Party. There's
a fine balance between those
two things.
What sets you apart?
I think I have a good mix-
ture of youth and experience.
I've been involved with the
state Republican Party since
1995, but at age 44 I think
I bring a lot of enthusiasm.
I'm a Generation X guy. Stuck
between the Baby Boomers
and Generation Y folks, you
kind of learn to balance the
needs of both those groups
- those who are younger,
joining the party, and those
who are older, long-term
supporters of the party. I'm
able to see the positives from
all aspects.



Bob Waechter, 70, lives
on Siesta Key and has been
a Sarasota County resident
for 35 of his 70 years. His
political experience includes
being a past chair, vice chair
and headquarters chair of the
Republican Party of Sarasota,
alternate Florida delegate to
the 2004 Republican national
convention, co-chair of the
George W. Bush presidential
re-election campaign in
Sarasota County, co-chair of
the Rudy Guiliani presidential
campaign in Sarasota, past
member of the Republican
Party of Florida executive and
rules committees and twice
president of the Siesta Key
Greater Sarasota Republican
Club.
Why are you running
and what do you hope to
accomplish?
The county chairmen do
the bulk of the work for the
party across the state, yet
they have only less than a
one-third vote in the State
Executive Committee when it


comes to setting party policy.
When I was party chairman,
I noted that quite often good
ideas were generated in the
chairman's council only to
be shot down by the state
committee council, which
enjoys a two-to-one advan-
tage over the chairman. This
is backwards. The people who
actually do the work of the
party are outnumbered by the
folks who quite often merely
show up four times a year for
quarterly meetings. The only
way this imbalance can be
compensated for is by having
state committee persons that
have an appreciation of the
chairman's role in the party
structure and who will vote to
support those chairmen when
appropriate.
What sets you apart?
Just plain experience. You
don't get kudos for age, but
you do get kudos with what
you do with the time you're
here. Nobody will say that I
haven't been involved and I
haven't worked hard.

Christian Ziegler, 29, lives
in downtown Sarasota and
majored in political science
and criminology at Florida
State University. His political
experience includes working
as a paid intern for the Florida
House of Representatives,
and working in the 2006, 2008
and 2010 election campaigns
for U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan
as well as being a legislative
assistant in Buchanan's office
in 2007-11. He served as the
communications director
for the Republican Party of
Sarasota in 2009-11 and is its
current executive director.
Why are you running
and what do you hope to
accomplish?
I'm a conservative. I think
we need new blood. All too
often those who have been
involved too long in the
party kind of lose touch with


what's going on with people
they represent. I'm a strong
believer in grassroots. Sara-
sota County is the grassroots
capital of the state, and it
might be one of the strongest
county parties in the country.
I think the party must be built
from the bottom up, not from
the top down. I would work
to make sure that we have
conservatives in our party
that push for conservative
principles.
What sets you apart?
This is my first jump into
my own election campaign.
I'm young. I'm energetic. I'm
a very strong conservative.
I have a lot of background
as staff, working behind the
scenes both in a congressional
office and in the state House,
as well as in campaigns. I
firmly believe the party needs
to be built from the people
knocking on the doors, mak-
ing the phone calls, attend-
ing the meetings, hearing
the information from their
friends. The party should not
be run by a few select people
at the top, in a back room,
making all the decisions.

is going on at the state
level. I feel those reports
have been noninforma-
tive. My goal is to go to
these state meetings and
find out what's going on
at the state level. I also
want to bring our county
concerns to the state
level, then come back
from the state and report
to the county what the
state is doing how
they're voting, what their
mind frame is like and
give a full and complete
accounting. Right now
there's no communica-
tion between the county
and the state.
What sets you apart?
I can't claim to be an
insider, and I think that's
a good thing. I'm not a
developer. I'm not a law-
yer. Those are the types
that usually get elected
to this office. Unlike
them, I'm not looking for
favors. I'm not looking
for the county or the
state to do for me. I'm
simply looking for com-
munication. I'm looking
for accountability from
the state, and I want
them to be accountable
for their votes.

Darlene "Dar" Harvey,
61, is the incumbent
Sarasota Republican


state committeewoman
and lives in the Gulf
Gate community. She
served 26 years in the
U.S. Navy, retiring as a
captain, and counts that
high in her qualifica-
tions for leadership.
She retired to Florida
in 2004 and began as a
volunteer at the Repub-
lican headquarters in
Sarasota, where she
initially worked over
several election cycles
and eventually served as
a precinct committee-
woman in Siesta Key. She
later rose to president of
the Sarasota Bay Repub-
lican Club, chaired an
education group for the
Sarasota Republican
Club and was secretary
for the Republican Party
of Sarasota.
Why are you running
and what do you hope
to accomplish?
Filling in for Katie
Baldwin, I've already
been doing the job for
the last 18 months. I feel
comfortable doing it and
I feel like I've helped
a lot in building unity
between the Republican
Club and the Executive
Committee. I've also
recruited several new
volunteers as well as
precinct committeemen
and women. I really care
and I would like to help
facilitate the communi-
cation between the state
and county levels.
What sets you apart?
I think my level of


experience and my
level of involvement
does that. I've done the
job for 18 months and
people know what I can
do. They've seen me
as an activist and that
speaks for itself. I've
been asked to do robo-
calls or send mailers.
I don't like to receive
robo-calls and I'm not
willing to put money
into that. Instead, I do
a lot of calling myself,
send out emails and give
out my own literature.

My goal is to repre-

lican Party. I've been a
Republican forever. I


Republicans in an hon-
est, forthright, non-self-
serving objective man-
ner. Frequently, there
are self-serving interests
in politics. This office is
unpaid and takes time to
interact with the party
on the state level. I want
to keep Republican
values above all else.
What sets you apart?
I have the most varied

I've been involved in
local politics the longest,

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW




One man's idea may be a model


What began several years ago
as one individual's quest
to clean up the water-filled
ditch in front of his house has blos-
somed into a communitywide effort to
rejuvenate a neighborhood's storm-
water system and the waterways that
system spills into.
It also is an example of government
done right. Local government is work-
ing with citizens, a civic association
and environmental organizations
to solve a nagging environmental
problem. This is grassroots activism,
literally.
The project started a few years
back when Rick Eaton of South
Venice got fed up with the gunk that
collected in the large swale outside
his house after the mowers came
through. He decided to put down
mulch and plant grasses that might
filter the runoff. He figured it would
look better and it might actually


improve water quality in the ditch.
It might bring back amphibians and
water fowl.
And it worked.
Sarasota County eventually was
persuaded to help with a pilot project.
The South Venice Civic Association
got onboard. Led by South Venice resi-
dents Steve Suau, a water specialist,
and Harrison Fox, who works with the
Sierra Club, the association formed a
water quality task force and began its
Siesta Waterway Restoration Project.
This was funded by a small county
neighborhood grant.
Homeowner-volunteers turned out
to clean up the Siesta Waterway, which
feeds into Alligator Creek. They raked
out muck, removed trash and piled
it into dumpsters. Lo and behold,
after eight months what had been
described as a "mucky, green stagnant
soup" became a waterway with clear
water and a sandy bottom. Wildlife


returned. With the recent rains, frogs
have been singing up a storm, volun-
teers said recently.
This is an outstanding example of
local people and communities work-
ing with governmental bodies that
take the time to listen to local ideas
and contribute to a test project. Kudos
to all who made it work.
But it's something more. The South
Venice Civic Association has been
grappling with water quality issues
for years. The densely packed neigh-
borhoods use septic tanks. Nutrient
runoff or seepage from the tanks
- is contributing to pollution of
Lemon Bay. That's one reason the
Lemon Bay League, which covers
the entire watershed, has gotten
involved.
With the state and the federal
Environmental Protection Agency
moving toward tighter water pollution
standards, this project could serve as


an example to other communities in
Southwest Florida. The association
hopes "passive, nature-based" systems
and technologies could better handle
stormwater runoff. Some of the
technologies might even supplant the
need for conversion to sewers. (South
Venice residents really don't want to
pay for a sewer system and have been
fighting it for years.)
Time will tell. Meanwhile, a portion
of the Siesta Waterway looks a lot
healthier. Sarasota County commis-
sioners recently dedicated another
$313,682 to expand the project on the
Siesta and other waterways, around
ponds and swales. The Sierra Club is
training "water sentinels" to monitor
water quality.
It shows there just may be a payoff
in making simple, natural adjustments
to the way we deal with the environ-
ment. Think different? Not a bad way
to proceed.


The dog days


Wow can you believe it is
August already?
When I was growing up
in Virginia, August was
considered the "dog days" of
summer." As a kid I never fully
understood what "dog days"
referred to; in fact, I don't think
I could tell you what it means
if you asked me tomorrow.
What I knew back then was
that it was way cooler to say
"dog days" than just plain
"August."
I remember that if someone
got a cold or any kind of
sickness, it was blamed on the
dog days. If someone got a cut
or injury or anything, panic
spread, as infection was at the
all-time high during dog days.
I remember being fearful of
August as a child and always
being extra careful as my
siblings and I traversed moun-
tains and crossed streams.
Ironically, as I reached my teen
years I began to point out the
dog days to others in conversa-
tions, creating more sinister
meanings for these days than
I should have. As I grew up, it
dawned on me I should learn
more about what I spoke of,
as I planned on leaving those
mountains one day.
Turns out that there are,
in fact, dog days of summer,
and they are typically in July
and August, as these months
tend to be the hottest months
of the year in the Northern
Hemisphere. Sometimes the
days will extend into Septem-
ber. As in most cases of lore,
the endless list of diseases,
infections, monsters and other
assorted evils that supposedly
come with the dog days was
made up by generations past.
It's simply hotter during these
days of summer.
Still, my mind goes back
to the fear, the dread and the
caution I demonstrated during
these times. What adventures
did I miss, what fun times did
I avoid? Was the fear going to
last forever?


I make it point not to teach
my kids the way I was taught
growing up in those moun-
tains, as sometimes what was
learned was a little farfetched.
I try to make sense of those
lessons, and here is what I
think I learned from the fear of
dog days: Parents wanted bet-
ter control of their kids when
school was not in session.
Frankly, we were a wild
bunch. Scaring us with tales of
woe and danger only helped
them keep the injuries down,
and the dog days became
a perfect method of risk
management.
We still climbed trees, we
still messed with critters and
we still jumped into water
from ledges that were way too
high. We still hung on sides
of mountains going after the
perfect grapevine swing. We
still dared one another to do
crazy stunts and we still ran
the woods until dark without
any fear.
What we did learn was
threefold: first, we exercised
a lot more caution; second,
we worked as a team, never
leaving one another alone;
and third, and probably most
important, we learned together
to overcome that fear of dog
days, and our lives changed as
we grew into adults.
Every now and again I will
get hot and exclaim out loud
something about "these darn
dog days," and my daughter
will ask me what dog days are.
My answer is simple: "The hot-
test part of the summer, angel,
nothing to worry you about."
Part of me has wanted to
scare her with those tales to
help keep her safe, and part of
me has wanted to explain the
value of caution, teamwork
and overcoming fear. But the
analytical part of me brings
home like a ton of bricks the
fact that in the world today
the dog days harbor different
dangers than my generation
ever faced.
Terrible things can happen
to children today, and what
kept me safe growing up
simply will not do; it's a differ-
ent place and a different time.
Keeping her safe is my job, and
just like the parents of people
of my generation, it's up to me
to find the ways to keep her
safe.

Be happy. I applaud city
council for its decision regard-
ing Challenger baseball. The
plan B location should work
just fine for the handicapped
kids. I really can't understand
why all the writers who sound
off make it sound as if they
don't have a place to put the
field. They do have a place to
put the field now, and it's the
same place they had a year
ago. They should just be happy
that they have it. It's right in
the middle of Wellfield Park.
Diverted. Someone called
in Let'em Have It and said
that Venice Regional Medical
Center went under diversion
for the second time in a week.
I don't know what it means if
any hospital would go under
diversion. Is it true that Venice
Regional Medical Center went
under diversion? What does
that mean and what causes it?
Why is this not reported?
Editor's Note: Diversion
means a hospital is tempo-
rarily unable to accept new
patients in its emergency
room, so ambulances have to
be diverted to other facilities.
It isn't reported because it's a
result of fluctuating conditions
usually resolved in a short time
frame.
Rumor. Why does Chal-
lenger, which now plays
less than one game a week,
demand nothing less than
three ball fields at Wellfield
Park? There are indications
that the Little League franchise
could then be moved to Well-
field and Chuck Reiter, Little
League's current home, could
then be sold to developers.
Editor's Note: The additional
fields Challenger is proposing
would not be built to Little
League specifications, and
there has been no discussion
of moving Little League to
the Wellfield, let alone selling
Chuck Reiter, a city park.
No-nos. The mainly Republi-
can city council wants to grant


Let 'em



















Have It
amnesty to the man who built
the too-long dock at Fisher-
man's Wharf. He's the guy who
refuses to bring the dock into
conformity with the building
permit because he wants to
have the tail wag the dog. In
2002, Sarasota County com-
missioners expended county
resources to hold at least three
public hearings to establish
and confirm that maximum
permitted length for the dock,
yet the owner deliberately
built it longer. To grant him
amnesty, they want to spend
taxpayer money, which is a
Republican no-no, to create an
additional bureaucratic unit -
there's the third no no and
duplicate the county's highly
experienced permitting unit,
whose services are currently
provided to this city for free.
What is council thinking? If our
city council ties itself in knots
to allow the owner to get away
with a major violation, does
council think he will abide by
the operating restrictions it
lays down?
Attention. Should our
county commissioners and
parks and recreation pay more


attention to Snook Haven's
debt rather than yoga on the
beach?
Civilized. This refers to the
letter to the editor entitled
"Obamacare hurts seniors."
I went to a seminar a few
years back and I too thought
it sounded great; however,
my primary doctor would do
the paperwork but require my
check in advance. My cardi-
ologist would have nothing
to do with it. It seems they
were slow to pay and trying
to get price cuts. They're paid
a set amount for the year by
Medicare, so the less they
pay out, the more profit they
have. I imagine if one had a
real medical problem, they
would drop you the next year.
As a very senior senior, I'm
fortunate in having had few
surgical procedures and meds,
but I know how hospital bills
can sometimes suddenly
become astronomical. I want
an Obamacare plan that will
take care of all this similar to
what most civilized countries
in the world have.
No fan. Ralph Lauren should
not be chosen to design the
clothes for the next Olympics.
In fact, I won't be buying any
of his design clothing. I can't
afford them anyhow.

Summer is a hot time for theft


Summer is here, and
burglaries and larcenies
are on the rise.
Besides individual
economic problems,
winter visitors have
departed, leaving homes
unoccupied and in some
cases vulnerable.
School is out and
kids are looking for
excitement.


Couple the above with
crimes perpetrated by
drug addicts who need
to supply their habit and
recidivist professional
career criminals.
The modus operandi
takes different forms.
Some crooks will ring
your bell to see if some-
one is home. If there is
no answer, they break
in. The problem is, if the
homeowner does not
hear the bell or a knock
on the door, a confronta-
tion could take place that
might change a burglary
into an assault and
robbery. This can also
happen with nighttime
cat burglars who enter
homes while the residents


are asleep.
Others will stake out
a home and wait for the
occupants to leave.
Fortunately, most
burglaries occur while
victims are absent
from their residence or
business.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office arrested
Michael Sterlace, 27. While
in the process of commit-
ting a home burglary, he
was confronted and shot
by the homeowner. He
was arrested while seeking
treatment at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital.
Sterlace has been
linked to at least five
other burglaries. His girl-
friend, Taylor Dammann,


23, was arrested for driv-
ing the getaway car.
Burglaries in Sara-
sota County are down
25 percent.
I was recently con-
tacted by a retired Sara-
sota County employee
about an unusual
burglary. Her home was

Law enforcement


requests your cooperation
to help stop burglaries.
Always activate the
alarms in your home
and autos. Do not leave

Invest in security
spotlights and motion

Keep doors, windows

leave your garage door
open.
Keep an eye on your
neighbors' homes for
strange individuals and
occurrences.
If someone you don't
know knocks on your
door (especially at night),
do not open it. Speak
through the door and


find out who they are
and what they want. If
the situation becomes
suspicious, call law

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Into the frying pan
Editor:
The U.S. Court of
Appeals, District of
Columbia Circuit, Case
Number: 10-1239, is
the frying pan. Those
readying the firewood
are President Reagan's
former attorney gen-
eral, Edwin Meese III,
Michele Bachmann,
Steve King, Paul Broun
and nine other congress-
men. They are ready to
stop Barack Obama's
brazen assault on the
U.S. Constitution. You
can join in the lawsuit
by donating any amount
to Southeastern Legal
Foundation. They are
the group responsible
for the disbarring of ex-
President Bill Clinton.
The U.S. Constitution
specifies that only Con-
gress and the president
working together can lay
and collect taxes of any
kind. What is absolutely
prohibited is the presi-
dent raising taxes on his
sole authority. Obama is
doing an end-run around
the Constitution so he
can implement so-called
"regulatory taxes." These
taxes will make energy
more expensive for
Americans, forcing us to
scale back on what he
thinks is our "excessive
way of life."
Obama and his
Environmental Protec-
tion Agency are claiming
power to shut down any
business or company
that doesn't meet its
arbitrary environmental
standards. He is grabbing
at dictatorial powers that
will impose a dys-
functional Soviet-style
command and control
economy on America. It
is estimated that this will
destroy 4 million Ameri-
can jobs.
Congresswoman
Bachmann has said the
EPA "should really be
renamed the job-killing
organization of America."
It is estimated it will cost


the average American
family more than $3,000


in new taxes in.
It is said to be c
Obama's plan to
the wealth."

A great decision
Editor:
Overjoyed or depressed
over the Supreme Court
Obamacare decision? In
my opinion you should
be overjoyed because
paying for it is a federal
tax and not concealed
under the umbrella of
the Commerce Clause of
our Constitution. So, our
tax-and-spend Congress,
Senate and president will
be so identified.
Second, by being iden-
tified as a tax, the repeal
of Obamacare can be
overturned by a simple
majority and not the
supermajority required
if identified under the
Commerce Clause. So all
of us voters can vote for
or against the massive
Obamacare tax increase.
It also withdrew the
Commerce Clause from
the hands of our Con-
gress, which has used it
in the past to infringe
upon our rights as citi-
zens. It's a great decision
that also withdrew the
Supreme Court from the
political fray.

individual freedom and
can get a good educa-
tion, helping us and our
families to have a good
quality of life.
However, we know
that we still have some
important things to work
on: We are the last of all of
the developed countries
in the world to have some
form of universal health-
care. I did not realize
this until doing some
searching on the Web and
learned that more than
30 other countries have
programs that make sure
that every man, woman
and child will be cared for
when they get sick. Most
of them have had these
programs for many years.
And sadly, we also see
now that we have been
paying much, much
more for a system that
ranks near the bottom in
how well it works to keep
us healthy and prolong
our lives.
Thanks to the Supreme
Court decision, maybe
we can move ahead now
in this important part
of our American society
that is just a part of
being a caring society, a
basic human value that
we are known for. We
take responsibility for
taking care our ourselves
individually but also for
each other.
Our health care reform
act is complicated but it
includes features from
both Republican and
Democrats. In my mind,
to even think of repealing
it now without giving it a
chance would be insane.

Trayvon had
rights too
Editor:
In response to "The
real Trayvon" letter: It is
difficult to understand
why George Zimmer-
man didn't listen to
those telling him not to
pursue this young man
and leave it to the police.
However, he disregarded
their warnings. If he had
listened, we wouldn't
have this useless death of
a young 17-year-old.
Everyone seems to
forget that the "stand
your ground law" also
applies to Trayvon
Martin. (The law states


that a person may use
force in self defense
when there is reasonable
belief of threat without
the obligation to retreat
first.)
George Zimmerman
was pursuing this
young man, who was
unarmed, while he had


a weapon, and now Mr.
Zimmerman should be
held accountable for his
actions.
Fascism? More like
racism, which is raising
its ugly head again.

The Venice High freshman

VHS facilities.
Freshman sign-ups will be
held Friday, Aug. 3, at 10 a.m.

SCSO: Crime down in county so far this year


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
New county ordinances mak-
ing it harder for thieves to pawn
stolen jewelry and sell stolen
metals have reduced crime
24 percent in Sarasota County,
according to Sheriff Tom Knight.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office has reported most major
crime is down from January
through June compared to last
year at the same time, including
burglary (25 percent), aggravated
assault/battery (21 percent) and
grand theft (22 percent). The
statistics include unincorporated


Sarasota County.
The SCSO also credits efforts
to target prolific offenders and
crime-prevention partnerships
with citizens and business
owners for the reduction.
"Pawnshops are photographing
people who pawn items, as well as
getting good photos of the items
and writing much better descrip-
tions of what's being pawned,"
said SCSO spokeswoman Wendy
Rose. "Of course, it helps when
the owner has photographs
and a good description of the
inventory of jewelry. It's helpful
when we have serial numbers of
electronics and other valuables."


An ordinance designed to
reduce metal theft, combined
with special operations targeting
offenders who deal in stolen
property, has also led to an
overall reduction in these thefts
and associated crimes.
According to the SCSO, copper
thefts dropped from 48 in January-
June 2011 to 15 year-to-date, and
thefts of wire fell from 163 to 37.
Thefts of air-conditioning units
decreased 81 percent, from 263 in
January-June 2011 to 48 in 2012.
Full year-to-year crime figures
for the county were only avail-
able through May. The number of
reported burglaries fell from 853


from January-May 2011 to 681 in
the same period this year. Fraud
cases are down from 251 to 193,
larcenies from 2,401 to 2,035 and
robberies from 70 to 63.
While rapes fell 21 to 10 from
last May and aggravated assaults
are down from 221 to 152, the
number of murders rose in the
county.
Murder and manslaughter
increased from three last January-
May to seven through May of
this year, including a double
homicide of a 33- and a 23-year-
old in Sarasota April 9. Joshuat
Lopez-Santana, 19, of Bradenton
was arrested in the murders.


A few days later, SCSO depu-
ties charged Charles Dailey Jr.,
28, of Sarasota, with second-
degree murder in the shooting
death of his stepfather, Tony
"Buck" Waters, a Sarasota High
School graduate and tailback for
the University of Florida in 1978.
More recently, deputies arrested
Michael Rice, 23, of Seneca, S.C.,
on May 27 after he reportedly shot
Philippe Nahon, 48, in the head at
a tiki bar at an Osprey hotel.
DUI arrests increased from
328 in January-May 2011 to 388
through May of this year. Also up
were traffic citations, from 15,645
to 15,723.

CROSSWORD 4B


The cobbler of Venice
ByAUDREYBLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR"___- aE


In a small shop in South
Venice, Simon Ginter, 72,
cobbles away his days repair-
ing shoes for hundreds of
clients who can't quite bear
to toss out their favorite but
broken shoes.
"I'm a shoemaker from a
little boy," the Russian immi-
grant said in broken English
as he looked me squarely in
the face, eyes dancing, smile
spreading.
"When I was 13 years old -
the year Stalin died I start
working, learning to work
machines, like the lathe," he
said, pointing to the back
room filled with traditional
shoemaker's equipment. Some
of the pieces a metal shoe
stand, a Landis Co. stitcher -
are vintage dating back 75 or
80 years.
"The Landis machine takes
off old soles so I can put on
a new one," Ginter said. "It's
good. It was broken when I
bought the store 10 years ago."
He will celebrate his 10th
anniversary at the Venice store
this month. He bought Tip Top
Shoe Service at 2357 Holiday
Center from the same man he
had bought a shoe repair store
from in Brooklyn in 1979. The
man also was from Russia. It
was a turnkey deal, and some
of the equipment required
repair.
"It was expensive," Ginter
said. "One part cost me $1,200,
but I got a good repairman
from St. Petersburg to come
down and he stayed with me
all day."
Customer Carol Lippert
brought in a pair of shoes for
repair.
"He is wonderful," she said.
"I bring my loafers here that
are very old and he makes the
leather come alive."
Ginter moved to America in
1972 with his wife, Eva, and
their daughter, Inga, and son,
Igor (Eric in English).
"I moved to America to find
better work," he said. "At the
time, you could not find good
food or clothing in Russia
unless you paid more for it
under the table. It was not an
open market. I made a good
living here and say God bless
America."
He first looked for work in
Rome, Italy, but found none.
So he moved to New York City
and worked for the first five
years in odd jobs: washing
dishes, emptying dumpsters
and driving a taxi. After he
bought the shoe repair shop
he did quite well and turned it
into a shoe store where he just
sold shoes.
His wife and daughter took
a trip to Miami and someone
told them to go to Warm
Mineral Springs in North Port.
They started going there a lot,
and after many years of plead-
ing, his daughter persuaded
him to go, too. They traveled
back and forth from New York
to North Port for several years
and eventually moved to the
Warm Mineral Springs area full
time.
Inga knew the man Ginter
had bought the Brooklyn store
from was living in North Port
and had a shoe repair store
in Englewood. The man then
moved his store to Venice.
Ginter stopped in the store and

Ginter had been working in

make much money. One day
he overheard a man say his
brother was a shoemaker and
made good money.
"The man told me to go be a
shoemaker and I would make

At that time, a shoemaker

making shoes and said to

He went into the office with

you want?' and I told him. He
signed the paper and I began

'Talley's Folly' tackles a tough relationship


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
When a 40-something
Jewish accountant falls
in love with a younger
woman whose family
opposes any such union,
there could be trouble.
Instead, as lovingly
directed by Florida
Studio Theatre's associate
director Kate Alexander,
"Talley's Folly" by Lan-
ford Wilson, is endearing
and even sweet.
The accountant, Matt
Friedman, is portrayed
by Broadway actor
Dominic Comperatore.
The object of his affec-
tion is Sally Talley, played
by Maren Bush. The set-
ting is the "folly," an old
Victorian boathouse built
in 1870 by Sally's uncle,
Everett Wilson.
FST's version, designed
by April Soroko, is
delightfully decrepit yet
also quite a romantic
setting in the moonlight
where and when the

Friedman in Talley's Folly at Florida Studio Theatre through
Aug. 26 in the Keating Theatre.


story unfolds. Unseen
but contributing to the
potential outcome of this
somewhat mismatched
match are members
of Sally's conservative
family. Ardent Protes-
tants, they do not want
their daughter to marry
a Jew. That he is older
and from New York City
is even worse. It is just


after World War II and
America is on the verge
of its greatest economic
boom, yet class warfare
did not end with the
world war.
Matt relates his
meeting with Sally the
previous summer when
he was visiting her small
town of Lebanon, Mo.
Determined that they


would wed, he wrote to
her every day. Despite
getting just one reply, he
has returned to her home
intent on winning her
hand.
That all this will hap-
pen in the course of just
87 minutes is a promise
made to the audience
when Matt delivers all
this background infor-
mation to us as part
curtain speech, part
opening soliloquy.
At last, Sally appears
in the boathouse, most
upset by his arrival.
While talking about
the boathouse, Sally's
mention of her uncle
gives the first clue that
she does not share her
family's narrow Protes-
tant prejudices. That she
has changed into a new
dress for the meeting
is another positive sign
for Matt, who also had
been in regular contact
with her aunt over the
summer.
"I reread the Old


Testament," she said.
"I didn't reread the
New Testament," he
responded.
They talk about all
sorts of things. At one
point, he dons a pair of
figure skates and then
falls through one of the
weak areas of the folly's
floor. He never veers
from his goal, no matter
how discouraging her
responses.
"Life is going to be
interesting with you,"
Matt said to Sally.
With the scent of
honeysuckle in the air,
he gets down on one
knee to propose.
Again he fails, but he
finally learns why she
was already 31 and not
yet married.
She also probes into
his background, learn-
ing about his arrival in
America after the war.
"We're practically
middle-aged," he said,
earning laughter from
the audience, most of


whom were long past
those middle years.
The couple finally
kisses and right on
time, they vow to return
annually to this place.
"Talley's Folly"
resonated with the
opening-night audience
on many sides. This is
another winning choice
for FST, which knows its
audience as well as any
theater in the area.
Tickets are $19-$36 per
person. Order online at
www.floridastudio
theatre.org or call the box
office at 941-366-9000.
The theater is at 1241
N. Palm Ave., Sarasota.
"Talley's Folly will play
through Aug. 26 in the
Keating.
Coming next is a
comedy, "Perfect Wed-
ding," which will open
the newly renovated
Gompertz Theatre Aug. 8.
It will play through
Sept. 9.

FEATURES EDITOR
The Players' Summer
Sizzler production of
"Lettice & Lovage" leaves
nearly everyone laughing
by the end of the perfor-
mance, if not before.
Lettice Douffet, played
by Kaylene McCaw, is a
guide at historic Fustian
House in Wiltshire,
England. Finding the his-
tory of the house rather
boring, she decides to
embellish it a bit. She


' 'Lettice


embellishes her script so
much that letters about
her version of history
soon reach the Preserva-
tion Trust desk of Lottie
Schoen, who has the
power to hire and fire.
Schoen takes a tour to
see for herself, dismisses
the tourgoers and tells
Douffet to come to her
office the next day.
Although she lets her
go, Schoen not only
helps Douffet find a job
where her skills could
be appreciated but also


&


Lovage' brought the laughs


writes a wonderful letter
that helps her get the
job. Douffet is so grateful
that she shares some
homemade cordial with
Schoen, who rarely takes
a drink. Despite the first
"kick," the grog grows on
her.
Their unlikely friend-
ship blossoms despite
the presence of a cat in
Douffet's apartment.
Schoen has more than
a strong aversion to all
things feline.
Although Douffet


usually manages to keep
the cat away from her
friend, one night the cat
gets out and so startles
Schoen that things
escalate to the point of
calling the police who
charge Douffet with a
crime against Lottie.
Mr. Bardolph (Dan
Higgs) is assigned as
Schoen's attorney and
the story becomes even
more complicated as the
two women try to explain
what happened.
Michael A. Gray's set


works well as Fustian
House, the Preservation
Trust office and even as
Douffet's flat. Sound is by
Tim Collins, lighting by
Patrick Bedell. The clever
costumes by McCaw
included a stunning
full-length coat and a
blue dress with a top
skirt that could magically
become a cape or jacket
as needed. Doug Nelson
painted the tapestry.
April Glos was the pro-
duction stage manager.
Director Jimmy


Hoskins enhanced an
already funny script
with his direction and
the movement of extras
around the stage.
Others in the cast
included Dick Pell as
Surly Man, Diane Brinn
as Miss Framer and
Helen Pell, Addie Rosen
and Lyn Wiley as visitors
to Fustian House.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

47 K10830 A10756AKQ3

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

A This is simply a question of
whether you settle for small slam or
go all the way. Start with a jump shift
to three clubs to begin probing for
partner's values.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

AK95Q? QJ8720 AJ8474

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

A You are on the border of a limit
and a forcing raise of opener's suit,
and we would choose the aggressive
course because of the bigger bonus.
Should we go down in game the
vulnerability will still be in our favor
on the next deal.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

AK Q 1076 K 94 0 873 i6AK 9


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 20

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A You have a balanced minimum
without a stopper in the unbid major.
Despite that flaw, we think it is more
important to describe your shape than
anything else. Put a diamond among
your hearts and bid two no trump.


Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:


AKJ8V875


956AJ732


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

A If you have a way to show a limit
raise with only three-card support for
partner's major, by all means make it
now. If not, you must simply raise to
two hearts.

Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4KQJ9652c VoidO AK854A7

As dealer, what is your opening bid?

A You have a three-loser hand and a
self-sufficient master suit. To do
anything other than open two clubs
grossly undervalues this hand's
potential.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

AK 97 ~ J 9 8 0 AJ 946QJ 86

Partner opens the bidding with two
no trump. What do you bid?

A If you play the standard range of
20-22 points, you are a whit short of
bidding slam even if partner is
maximum you could be missing an
ace and a king, or even two aces.
Take the cash and let the credit go -
bid three no trump.

When I was a child,
someone told me that if I
crossed my eyes too long
they would get stuck that
way. Someone else told
me that if I stepped on a
rusty nail and didn't get
a tetanus shot, my jaw
would lock shut.
Thus two absolute
laws of the universe were
seared into my mind.
I didn't doubt them. I
didn't fact-check them. I
didn't make any distinc-
tions between them.
My unquestioning
belief in both bits of
information had nothing
to do with their plausibil-
ity. In fact, if you'd told
me back then that only
one of those two state-
ments was true and asked
me to guess which one,
I probably would have
pegged lockjaw as the
fabrication.
Of course, lockjaw is
real and that business
about your eyes getting
stuck is hogwash. But

the perfect chump.
As I got older, I started
to understand that much
of what I believed as a
child was nonsense. But
there's a natural tendency
to consider the source.
A piece of information
that came from the same
kid who had warned me
of the dangers of saying
"Bloody Mary" three
times in succession is
more suspect than some
fact I got from a teacher
or parent.
This is part of the
reason that so many
language myths are alive
and well today. Teachers
and parents, especially in
the 1950s and '60s, told
kids that it's "wrong" to
use such-and-such word
in such-and-such way.
Kids, never questioning
the source or thinking
to fact-check, simply
believed.
The words "healthy"
and "healthful" are a
quintessential example.
Many people during their

formative years heard
that "healthy" means
"in good health" and
that "healthful" means
promoting good health
and that the distinction
is absolute. Thus, they
believe, you can say
"Bobby is a healthy child"
and "Bobby eats a health-
ful diet," but you can't
say "Bobby eats a healthy
diet."
But if these same
people bothered to look
it up, they'd see they're
wrong.
"Healthy: adjective ...
healthful" -Webster's
New World College
Dictionary
"Healthy: ... conducive
to good health; health-
ful" American Heritage
Dictionary
"Healthy: ... conducive
to health" Merriam-
Webster's Collegiate
Dictionary
For anyone who
would argue that these
modern dictionaries are
just caving in to a recent
erosion of the word,
here's a definition from
my 1933 Oxford Universal
Dictionary: "healthy...
conducive to health."
Some might guess
that this is an American-
grown atrocity against the


mother tongue. But that
would be wrong, too.
"The currency of the
disliked use in America is
not clear to me, but the
problem hardly arises in
Britain," notes Fowler's
Modern English Usage,
the venerable author-
ity for British linguistic
propriety.
"'Healthful,' mean-
ing 'conducive to good
health', is rarely used,"
Fowler's adds, citing
sources that dub the word
"literary," "old-fashioned"
and "formal." "'Healthy'
is by far the commoner
word of the two and is
used to mean either 'pos-
sessing or enjoying good
health' or 'conducive to
good health."'
So it may surprise you
to hear that, when edit-
ing, I sometimes change
"healthy" to "healthful."
But it's not because the
writer used "healthy"
wrong. It's because so
many readers might
think he did. After all, old
myths die hard.

FRAN VALENCIC
Thanks to Eagle S(
Doug Ortner and hi
troop, there are 120
signs around the na
preserve at Stonybr
helping keep people
from trespassing an
damaging environm
tally sensitive lands.
Eagle Scout Devin
Spadaro led his troo
in a project of build
and placing bat hou
in a preserve near th
Charlotte Sports Sta
to provide a human(
to relocate bats awa


from the public and
free from harm. Both
boys completed theses
projects to earn the rank
of Eagle.
Doug and Devin re-
ceived praise from Scout
leaders in attendance,
Sheriff Tom Knight and
Venice Vice Mayor Kit
McKeon.
"My grandfather
has been my greatest
cout inspiration,"said Doug
s when he introduced his
mentor. Doug is a third
ture generation Eagle Scout
ook following in the footsteps
of his grandfather Arthur
d and father, Troop 77
ien- Scout Master Scott
Ortner.
The mood was fes-
)p tive at Grace United

y Spadaro.


Basket winners
Christmas in July
chairs Sandy McGowan
and Mindy Pieper met
at Venice Wine & Coffee
and had shopper Maria
Hornauer pull the win-
ning names for the event's
fabulous gift baskets.
The winners are: Irva
Maddox, Eva Hensley-
Lee, Amy Jordan and
Devon Ducheneau, who
when called said, "I did?
Awesome!"
There was excitement
when the first winning
ticket pulled belonged to
Irva Maddox. Kiki Allen
of Venice Wine & Coffee
created the baskets and
Mrs. Maddox was her
teacher at Venice High.
Congratulations to the
winners and bravo to
everyone who gave a ho,
ho, ho in July.
The group plans
another Christmas in July


celebration next year.

One of our best
The special person of
this week is Matt Rich.
This nice man recog-
nized that his grandson
wanted to be a Boy Scout.
The boy's parents were
working, so he stepped
up and decided to join
Scouts with Devin.
Just before their first
camping trip Devin hurt his
leg and was in a wheelchair.
Matt and his grandson
went on the campout any-
way, and Matt wheeled him
around the campgrounds,
which was no easy task.
The duo even participated
in games and won a few.
Now, 10 years later, Devin
asked his grandfather to
speak in his behalf at the
Court of Honor. He did.
Matt Rich is one of the
men who make Venice a
great place to live.


Mindy Pieper, left, and Sandy McGowan, cochairs of the Venice
MainStreet Christmas in July event, deposit all the tickets
submitted for the basket raffle into a huge basket and get
ready to pick the winners.


Skip Bibbee, assistant Scout Master of Troop 77, offered
congratulations to the new Eagle Scouts.

As recently as 10 years ago, summer was the slow season.
Now, there is so much on this week's calendar, it is impos-
sible to do it all, let alone have time for the latest film in the
local 12- or 20-plex.
At some point between now and Sunday, be sure to see
Venice Theatre's summer stock production of "The Best
Little Whorehouse in Texas,"' Because of subject matter and
some adult language, leave the youngsters at home. Consider
that there is no one under 18 in the cast. For tickets, call
941-488-1115.
Banyan Theater's second summer production, "The Piano
Teacher," featuring Donna Gerdes in the main role, may give you
some chills as the story unfolds in the Cook Theater at the
FSU Center for the Performing Arts in Sarasota. For tickets,
call 941-351-2808.
Across the street at 5401 Bay Shore Drive is the John and
Mable Ringling Museum of Art which includes the Ca d'Zan
mansion, Museum of the Circus and the Howard Tibbals
Learning Center, which contains the world's largest miniature
circus (approximately 3,800 square feet). Built by Howard
Tibbals who also is one of the museum's major donors, the
miniature circus is an ongoing project of the man who built his first
circus train car when he was 19 and a student at the University of
North Carolina.
Within the art museum there is a show featuring the
installation art of Sanford Biggers, the 2010 winner of the
Greenfield Prize awarded by the Hermitage Artist Retreat on
Manasota Key and the Greenfield Foundation.
For museum hours and information, visit www.ringling.org or call
941-359-5700.

'Sea'

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
S eaWorld is a happening place this sum-
mer. In addition to its spectacular nighttime
shows for guests, even the behind-the-
scenes area is busy with the birth of a new
dolphin and, most recently, a baby manatee.
The manatee was born to a rescued 10-root
female manatee that was brought to SeaWorld
with multiple injuries because it became tangled
with discarded fishing line and a crab pot line.
It was rescued by SeaWorld's animal team at
Sykes Creek in Merritt Island.
The mother's front right flipper had to be am-
putated and it was given antibiotics. It also was
given a sonogram which showed it was pregnant.
The baby manatee was born six weeks later and
both are dong fine in their pool at SeaWorld's
animal rescue and rehabilitation facility. While that


are is not open to the public, there is more than
enough to see and do at SeaWorld.
Continuing through Aug. 12 is Summer Nights
which features coaster rides under the stars,
special shows and nightly fireworks followed by a
fountain finale. The park is open until 10 p.m.
Turtle Trek, the new 3D 360 journey of a sea
turtle opened in conjunction with Summer Nights
as did Shamu Rocks, which features whales
doing amazing tricks while visitors jam to the
rock-and-roll beat of performers on stage behind
the whales' giant pool.
Other shows include the always popular Clyde
and Seamore which features two sea lions. Like

flipper, with its newborn baby manatee in

SeaWorld's Animal Rescue team recently traveled to Sykes Creek in Merritt Island, Fla., to rescue

Fishing line was also wrapped around both of her front flippers.

around what the animals do naturally Clyde and
Seamore have been earning laughs as long as
there has been a SeaWorld.The sea lions are

Zip lines come from wild to mild
BY MARJIE, -LAMBEiRT


BY MARJIE LAMBERT
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
The mother of all thrill rides? It's at Forever
Florida, about 45 miles south of the
Orlando theme parks.
The choice of thrills is yours. It could be
Peregrine Plunge, smooth and straight and, at
1,300 feet, the longest zip line in Florida. Or the
Rattlesnake, which turns and dips so it feels like
the zip line hangs beneath a roller coaster track.
There's Panther Pounce, a straight drop to the
ground. And the Zip Line Safari, with seven zip
lines and two suspension bridges that take almost
2 1/2 hours to complete.
Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida put in the
Zip Line Safari last year, ratcheting up the thrills
available at the cattle ranch-turned-adventure
park. In April, it added the other zip lines.
Forever Florida is a 4,700-acre wildlife conser-
vation area that includes a working cattle ranch
and the Allen Broussard Conservancy as well
as the adventures. It has a mailing address in St.
Cloud, but it's closer to Holopaw and is about an
hour's drive from Orlando.

In addition to the zip lines, it offers "safaris" by
horseback, a recumbent bicycle attached to a cable
25 feet above the ground, and a "coach" that is more
like a swamp buggy There is wildlife throughout
the property, including peacocks, alligators, deer,
wild turkey and other creatures that are frequently
sighted, and scarcer animals including wild hogs,
blacks bears and Florida panthers.
Except for the coach safari, Matt Duda, director
of sales and marketing, likes to brag that none of
the adventures burns fuel, they're all powered by
people or horses. And adrenalin.
A newbie, a calm and adventurous fellow, vol-

which uses a rigid spine instead of a cable that
sends the rider on a zigzag, up-and-down route

line roller coaster. It's the only one in the United
States.

out onto the platform about 70 feet above the

Vacationing




on Siesta Key


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Over the past few years, more and more
people have been sticking close to home during
vacation time, less willing to part with the hard-
earned money it takes to travel. Fortunately for
suncoast residents, when we staycation, we have
the world's No. 1 beach in our backyard.
Robin Turner works with Seaside Resort Rent-
als on Stickney Point Road. Not only does she
manage and rent properties on Siesta Key, but
she staycations in them as well.
"I have a house I manage right on Point of
Rocks beach, and we're staying there in July,"
she said. "Renting there takes the hassle out of
driving to the beach."
Turner said that if you actually stay in your own
house during your staycation, you run the risk of
falling into your regular routines instead of having
fun.
'When you're at home, you're cleaning, doing
laundry and on the phone," she said. 'Then you feel
guilty if you're not doing that."
The solution is to go to a local rental company
and see what it has within your price range for
the dates that you want. Turner's office manages
about 40 properties on Siesta Key and Siesta
4-Rent has 180.
Jamie Styers, broker associate for Siesta
4-Rent, said that staycations have become very
popular in recent years.
"It's very common for locals who want to get
out to the beach," he said. "We get a lot of families
from Lakewood Ranch and Venice."
He added that many times local residents rent

tached to the zip line.
"Now just lift up your feet and sit in the har-
ness," the attendant told him. And just like that,
he was off, gliding along the beginning of the line
that, if stretched out straight, would end up nearly
1,000 feet from where he started,
His friends watched as he slid along the cable,
tense and silent, even as it took a gradual turn
that took him 90 degrees from where he had
been before.
"He's going to scream," one of them said as the
rider approached a dip, and a few seconds later
he did, although it was more like a yelp as he
got a little bounce from the dip. There was more
surprise than fear in the yelps that followed, the
result of unexpected turns and bounces.
He finished, got unhooked and quickly climbed
the eight flights of stairs to the platform where rid-
ers launched themselves on both the Rattlesnake
and Peregrine Plunge. His colleagues cheered.
Meanwhile, I was getting to ride my first zip
line. I chose Peregrine Plunge because it was
straight and simple.
"I don't think I can do this," I told the fellow adjust-
ing my harness. My stomach was knotted with fear.
"You don't have to do anything," he said. "Just
pick up your feet and you'll go without doing
another thing."
He reached up and tugged on the cable. "This
cable will hold 5,000 pounds," he said, trying to
encourage me.
Peregrine Plunge is a tandem zip line. Another
woman strapped into her harness, stood calmly
waiting so we could launch together and ride side
by side. There were people waiting behind us.
"OK," I said.
After a final check, I picked up my feet and
was out over thin air in a flash. I leaned back in
my harness. Not so bad after all. Woo-hoo! We
zipped along, not too fast, turning from side to
side a little. "Grab the yellow rope," the guide on

properties from him to use for family reunions. Sty-
ers' properties are primarily condominiums, but he
also has private homes and duplexes for rent.
Both Styers and Turner said that Siesta Key
Beach's No. 1 Beach designation has been a
boon for business.
"We have very little downtime now," said Styers.
"Not since the day it was announced."
Turner has been sold on Siesta Key as a
vacation spot for quite some time, appreciating its
village-like atmosphere.
"With Siesta in general, you really do leave the
high-rise condo behind," she said. "When we're
out here, we go out to eat, we shop we do
everything on the Key."

the far platform called to me, too soon. I grabbed
it as I passed, and as I slowed, he hauled me in
the rest of the way.
Emboldened, I climbed back up the stairs to
ride the Rattlesnake. But it had a bit much ac-
tion for me. I landed safely and told Duda I was
finished with zip lines for the day.
The others decided to try the Panther Pounce,
which is essentially a free fall with cables slowing
the rider as he nears the ground. Its a 68-foot fall,
and unlike the other two zip lines, requires the rider
to deliberately step into thin air.
I retreated to the Cypress Canopy Cycle, a
reclining bicycle suspended from a steel cable.
It moves only as fast as the rider wants it to and
is only 25 feet high at most. It is more my speed.
The route winds below the tree canopy but above
saw palmetto and other growth. For about 40 min-
utes I pedaled, pausing occasionally to enjoy the
view and a different kind of thrill ride.
Forever Florida opens daily at 9 a.m. Clos-
ing hours vary; some activities are available by
moonlight on certain nights.
All-day admission, including all the zip lines
and the Cypress Canopy Cycle, is $135. Or buy
a ticket for individual safaris or zip lines. For
example. the Zip Line Safari is $85, the Cypress
Canopy Cycle is $45, a 90-minute horseback

versatile persona to defy stereotypes and encour-
age others to overcome their preconceived no-
tions about people who are considered "disabled."
His unique brand of "reverse teasing" affords
him the great joy of "humbling condescending
people."
Blue's stand-out performances at the 2004 Las
Vegas Comedy Festival earned him $10,000 as
grand prize winner of the Royal Flush Comedy
Competition.
In 2005, Blue emerged as a major force on
the college circuit with main stage showcases
that garnered rave reviews and helped earn him
a nomination for best diversity event of 2006 by
the APCA.
A Lewis & Clark College programmer re-
marked, "Not only did Josh Blue receive a stand-
ing ovation, but he was the funniest comedian of
the entire three-day convention."


From comedy clubs and theater engagements
to college campuses and corporate events,
wherever he takes the stage Blue elicits a wildly
appreciative crowd response.
His uncanny ability to improvise with any audi-
ence coupled with comedic timing rarely found
in a performer of his age has enabled Blue to
rapidly develop a fan base across the country.
A well-known club owner following a recent
show when he exclaimed perhaps best describes
his rise, "Josh is rolling like a rock star."
Blue will be performing at Visani Comedy
Dinner Theater at 8 p.m. today-Thursday,
8:30 p.m. Friday and at 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Saturday. Tickets are $22.

Sarasota Opera's Nemo project moves forward


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
ANational Endowment for the Arts works
grant is a big boost for Sarasota Opera's
upcoming World premier of "Little Nemo in
Slumberland."
The opera will receive $22,500 specifically
for the "technology design and creation" of the
premier. It is the third NEA grant for the Nemo
project. The first grant was for $15,000 that
went toward the initial commission of the work.
The second grant of $25,000 was earmarked
for production costs of the opera which will be
performed by the Sarasota Youth Opera next
year.
The grant is one of 788 grants in support of
various arts projects across the country totalling
$24.81 million for the year. NEA grants are held
in high esteem by people in the arts world and
granted to organizations and projects based on
such things as "excellence, public engagement
with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in
the arts, and the strengthening of communities
through the arts." Words in quotation are from a
press release from Sarasota Opera.
'We are truly thankful for the progressive vision
of the NEA as this grant will help us to ensure the
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity we are able to offer
the young community of Sarasota in presenting


the world premiere of a fully staged opera," Sara-
sota Opera's executive director Susan Danis said
in the opera's release. "There is nowhere else in
the United States offering this kind of opportunity
to children between the ages of 8 and 18."
Inspiration for the two-act youth opera came
from Winsor McCay's classic comic strip,
"Little Nemo in Slumberland" and will feature
dream sequences from the strip that relate
the adventures of a young boy in his attempt
to save Slumberland from Emperor Sol who
wants continuous sunshine. Billed as a "magic
opera," the story includes a floating bed, gi-
ants, a balloon ride a crystal enchantress and
"a palace that turns upside down." Many of the
magical sequences will be made possible and
even enhanced by the use of SCRIBE, a new
background projection system piloted at the
University of Kentucky where the opera was
work-shopped. That system should easily mesh
with the systems installed by Sarasota opera dur-
ing its recent $20 million renovation of the historic
old Edwards Theatre which is today known as
Sarasota Opera House
Daron Aric Hagen was commissioned by Sara-
sota Opera as the composer with J.D. McClatchy
as the librettist. They were charged with creating
a work specifically for young voices in the 8 to
18-year range. The Sarasota Opera associates


who commissioned the work also requested that
it also be suitable for school and college produc-
tions as well as by other youth opera companies
in the U.S. and Canada. Casting for the youth
opera has not yet been announced.
In addition to the NEA grants and help from
the University of Kentucky Opera Theater and its
SCRIBE system, the opera will receive produc-
tion assistance from Book High School of the
Performing Arts, the Out of Door Academy and
the Ringling School of Art and Design.
"Little Nemo in Slumberland" premiers in
Sarasota Nov. 10 at 5:30 p.m. and Nov. 11 at
12:30 p.m., as part of the fall season which also


includes "Rigoletto," opening Oct. to begin the
opera's 54th season. The winter season will open
on Feb. 9The opera began in 1960 with initial
performances in the Historic Asolo Theater which
was recently restored at the John and Mable
Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota. The opera
purchased and adapted the old Edwards Theater
in 1979. Its first performance there was in 1984.
Victor DeRenzi has been the company's artistic
director since 1983.
For tickets to any of the coming operas, visit
www.sarasotaopera.org or call the box office
at 941-366-8450. The opera house is at 61 N.
Pineapple Ave., Sarasota.

Tampa Bay Times Forum earns top honors for entertainment facility


PROVIDED BY THE TAMPA BAY TIMES FORUM

The Tampa Bay Times Forum has been

ranked second in the United States (15th
in the world) by Pollstar magazine, as well
as ranked ninth in the United States (14th in the

Venice to host national cat show


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
Gulf to Bay Cat Club, a Florida chapter
of United Feline Organization, will hold
its annual regional and national awards
show from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The Championship and Household Pet Cat
Show will be held at South Venice Community
Center, 720 Alligator Drive, Venice.
General admission is $3. Children under 12 get
in free but must be accompanied by an adult.
Although the judges six judges are sched-
uled are from Florida, they have judged cat
shows as far away as Europe and Australia.
"All local shows count toward regional and
national scoring," said Lynda O'Neil, club presi-
dent. 'The best cat in the region has the highest
number of points, irrespective of where the points
are received. The best national cat has more
points than any other cat showing."
Awards will be presented to the Best of the


Best at this show.
"Those awards are honorific rather than
counting points," O'Neil said.
Attendees will see exotic breeds and house-
hold pets, each with their own special look and
personality. You can learn more about cats and
ask the judges questions about the health and
care of your cat. The judges are always glad to
make helpful suggestions.
Show organizers will feature a silent auction
table with assorted goodies that can be enjoyed
by cat lovers and their feline friends.
If you want to enter a cat in the show, call
941-358-5417 for an entry form and more infor-
mation.
The entry fee is $35 per cat.
Entries must be received before Saturday.
Household pets are welcome. If 8 months
or older, they must be spayed or neutered,
bathed and brushed and their claws must
be clipped.

GO IN THE KITCHEN


Olympia Restaurant


BY DELORES SAVAS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When Effie Boudalis and her father
Angelo, from Northern Greece, opened
Olympia Restaurant many years ago
they had one goal in mind, and that was to serve
great food and provide excellent service.
Their goal has been met as Olympia
restaurant has had a steady growth of not
only regular customers but new customers
as word spreads of their varied menu. This
steady cliental Effie said of their success,
"Is because we operate as a family restaurant
and know many customers by name. Many
come to dine everyday while some come three
times a day especially to order chef, Spiro
Doukakis special daily tomato cabbage soup."
Doukakis who has been cooking for 30 years
said, "I have one goal in mind and that is to make
sure that customers are 100 percent satisfied.
I make everything from scratch every day that
includes baking homemade bread, soups and
sauces. I use fresh herbs and good quality food
to cook the food just right. I prepare fresh food
every day."
"I love to cook and make, Greek, Spanish,
Mexican and some French dishes plus daily
specials. If I get a compliment from the customers
it makes me happy that they are pleased with my
cooking, Doukakis said.
Some of his Greek dishes include "mousaka,"
layers of eggplant, potatoes, and ground beef,
topped with a special sauce. Plus many chicken
dishes such as chicken piccata, saut6ed with but-

ter, parsley, lemon with wine sauce, accompanied
with pasta, or mashed potatoes.
Special homemade desserts are also offered
such as carrot cake, rice pudding homemade
cheese cake and baklava.
Morning customers according to Effie, "come
to Olympia especially to order special omelets
such as the farmers, Greek spinach and feta
cheese, and western omelets made by her
son, Tony Kallis, who has cooked at Olympia
for the past 10 years. He said, "I learned how

Welcome to the Flying Fantasy Circus


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
They fly through the air with the greatest
of ease. It's Tito Gaona's students on the
flying trapeze.
Gaona, a fifth-generation trapeze performer,
is the owner and founder of the Flying Trapeze
Academy and Flying Fantasy Circus. On the
southern part of Venice Island, right by the old
Venice Arena, Gaona has children from the age
of 6 and up learning how to perform all differ-
ent types of aerial circus acts including the
trapeze.
Gaona is a member of the Flying Gaonas, a
five-generation trapeze and circus performing
family that has performed with the Big Apple
Circus, Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey
Circus, as well as circuses across Europe and
South America. Since making a permanent
move to Venice after his retirement, Gaona has
remained heavily involved with the circus com-
munity. This summer, he and his wife Renata,
an accomplished dancer, have once again put
together their very popular summer camp for
young people.
"I do a nice camp," he said. 'They come in with
fear and they leave happy it's all about getting
to know who you are. Don't be scared of the
heights, be scared of the addiction."
The campers first meet under a smaller
version of the big top and practice things like jug-
gling, silks and other performing acts. Later they
move out to a real trapeze set-up, with a safety
net and firmly attached safety harnesses.
The Gaonas agree that one of the most
beautiful things about working with young people
on something like this is their fearlessness and
willingness to try anything. Megan Bartek is a ris-
ing senior at Venice High School and is attending
the summer camp.
"I've been dancing with Renata for seven
years," she said. "I'm doing the silks, the lyra
(aerial hoop) and the trapeze which I learned
to do in one week."


SUN PHOTOS BY DEBBIE FLESSNER


Victoria Gaona holds Isabella Kennedy while
performing on the silks.


The summer camp group practices their juggling skills.


Someone who also picked up the trapeze
quickly, but who was also born to do it, is the
Gaona's daughter Victoria. At 8 years old, she
is already so skilled in the circus arts that she's
often called upon to demonstrate techniques for
the other children.
"I was watching the trapeze when I was in my
diapers," she said. "My dad was standing there
holding the ropes, and I pulled on his pants leg
and told him I wanted to do it, too."
The Gaonas also offer year-round classes for
those who can't make the summertime camps.
The semi-private classes contain from three to
seven people, and are available during a wide
range of times, including weekends.
Besides teaching children to perform, another
passion of the Gaonas is trying to save the
Venice Arena from demolition. For Tito, who used
to perform in the arena with his family circus, it is
a very sentimental thing.
"We used to pack them in to me it was a
magical time," he said. "I want to bring back the


traditional circus, with sawdust, horseback riders
and the trapeze."
The fundraising efforts continue and Gaona
has about three more years to raise enough
money to save the building before it is torn down.
In the meantime, he and Renata are doing all
they can to preserve the legacy of the circus -
one child at a time. .
"This is history and that's why I fight for it," he
said. "When you tear down something, you can
never build it again. But as long as a child is born,
the circus will never die."

Compadre


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Little more than eight years ago, Javier
and Wendy Nunez decided that they were
ready to go into business for themselves.
"Both of us worked at Mi Pueblo (in Venice),"
said Wendy Nunez. "My husband was the man-
ager and I worked in the office."
Having worked in the restaurant business for
years and both being Mexican natives,
they knew that they wanted to open a restau-
rant that specialized in what they knew best-
Mexican food. Last December, their restaurant,
Compadre's celebrated its eighth anniversary
at its West Dearborn Street location in
Englewood.
In order to deliver the most authentic food pos-
sible, the Nunezes hired a staff that understood
not only the food, but the culture they were trying
to convey to their customers.
"Javier does all the prep work in the morn-
ing," Nunez said. "Alex (Villanueva) works in the
kitchen with him."
Villanueva is also from Mexico, and says that
he has learned a lot about cooking from Javier.
In addition, the two have become good friends,
sharing a love of fishing on the days the restau-
rant is closed.
"I've worked here for about seven years," Vil-
lanueva said. "Before that I worked in construction
in North Carolina."
He said that he has developed a true love
of cooking, and it has carried through to his
personal life.
"My wife cooks at home during the week, but I
often cook on Sundays," he said.
The food that Javier Nunez and Villanueva
are preparing at Compadre's has become very
popular in the Englewood community.
"He's (Javier) worked at four different types of
restaurants and he compiled the best of what he's
gathered' "Wendy Nunez said. "Between the two
of them (Javier and Villanueva), they work out all
the details."
Nunez said the restaurant is even getting
a pretty big off-season crowd, especially at
lunchtime.
"I think the fajitas are really good it's the
sizzle that draws people's attention," she said.
"And our burritos are huge. I actually need to size
them down a little, because people are telling me
they're too big."
Something else the regular customers love
about Compadre's is the consistency in their staff.


Compadre's has been at its West Dearborn Street location in Englewood for eight years.


Compadre's employee Peyre Diaz and co-owner
Wendy Nunez.
Nunez said that many of the restaurant's employ-
ees have been there since the beginning.
"Our staff is like family," Nunez said. "They're
very valuable, because without them, we can't
function and they know that."
She said that she and her husband also have a
great appreciation for the Englewood community
they have been a part of for quite some time.
'We have a lot of regular customers and many of
them have been coming here for a long time," she
said. "Our 16-year-old son (Erik) is now working here
and he's getting to know the customers, too"
Compadre's is located at 498 W. Dearborn St.,
Englewood.

'Grease"

ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

( you'ree the one that I want, oo-oo-oo00."
YThere's something catchy about that tune
I that warms up the audience at Broadway
Palm Theatre's rendition of "Grease," now on
stage through Aug. 18.
Get your dancing shoes on for all of the popular
songs that made this 1978 big-screen musical a
huge hit in the U.S. and across the globe. With Amy
Marie McCleary's stage direction and well-choreo-
graphed dance routines, and Loren Strickland's
superb musical direction, the play is a hit again.
The music started 15 minutes early with
Strickland (keyboards) and his merry music men
playing '50s music from the back of the stage. On
opening night, rounding out the orchestra were
Tom Weaver, guitar; Gordon Edgerton, sax; and
Gary Leone, drums.
A class reunion and 'Welcome Back Rydell High
Class of '59" opens the play, taking us back in time
via such songs as "Shake, Rattle and Roll,"'The
Twist,"' and Brenda Lee's soulful hit, "I'm Sorry"'

in the '50s trying to act cool. It was a time of hot
cars, rival gangs, fitting in and coming of age.
Danny Zuko (Jamey Isenor) fell in love with
Sandy Dumbrowski (Adrienne Griffiths) over
the summer, but shunned her sweet innocence
when back in school around the gang members
he identified with.
Both characters gave strong performances, and
were complemented greatly by all the other singers
and dancers who crossed the stage. I don't recall
ever seeing anyone do the "Hand Jive" as crisply
and uniformly as this troupe pulled it off.
Sandy didn't understand the change in
Danny and had to toughen up to fit into his
world. She learned a lot from tough girl Betty
Rizzo (Laura Wright, who also gave a stellar
performance), and went from wearing a long
ponytail, full poodle skirt and saddle shoes to
a more sexy short hairdo, tight pants and silver
high heels.
In the end, Sandy gave up singing about being
the more mellow Sandra Dee and took Danny by
the arm while singing "You're the one that I want."
She got her man.

Play tihe rolling of "The Cat"


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

I BUSINESS &~ SERVICE A, [DUIRECTORY IK


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My 13-year-old son has
a wart on his hand. In
fact, he has two of them.
They don't bother him,
but they bother me. If you
neglect them, will they go
away on their own? I'm
not sure we can handle
a doctor's bill right now.
How else can we get rid
of them on the cheap? I'd
like to find and grab by
the neck whoever gave
him these warts. R.R.
ANSWER: Don't bother
looking for the person
who passed the wart
virus to your son. You'll
never find him or her.
For one, some infected
people show no signs
of a wart, yet they can
pass the virus to others.
For two, the incubation
period for a wart is two
to six months. Do you
think your son remem-
bers who touched him
six months ago?
The human papil-
lomavirus is the cause
of warts. More than 150
different varieties exist.
Some warts are dangers
to health. The ones that
cause cervical cancer are
examples, but that's a
topic for another day. The
ordinary wart is passed
by skin-to-skin contact.
Your son ought to make
an effort not to touch the
wart to other parts of his
body. He can transfer the
virus in that way.
It's OK to leave the
warts alone. They disap-
pear two out of three
times, but their disap-
pearance can take as
long as two years.
For home wart treat-
ment, you'll find many
wart removers on the
counters of your local
drugstores. DuoPlant,
Compound W and Wart-
Off are but a few names.
Follow bottle directions
carefully.
Duct tape the duct
tape found in hardware
stores has a mixed
record as a wart remover.
Apply tape to the warts
and leave it in place
for six days. You don't
need a huge amount
of tape, just enough
to cover the wart. On
day six, remove the
tape and have your son
soak his hand in warm
water. Then, with an
emery board or pumice
stone both drugstore
items lightly rub the
warts to remove as much
of them as you can.
Reserve these devices
for wart treatment only.
On day seven, reapply
the duct tape. Continue
the ritual, if need be, for
eight weeks. If it hasn't
worked by then, it's not
going to.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My fingernails are an
eyesore. Since I turned
83, they've turned ugly.
They break easily. What
can I use to put some
strength back in them?
- R.W.
ANSWER: Keep your
nails out of water. If
you have to put them in
water, wear protective
gloves. Cut the nails
short. You can use nail
polish, but go very easy
on polish remover.
Nail hardeners are
helpful. Don't buy ones
that contain toluene or
formaldehyde. A reader,
J.G., wrote to me after
the last time I wrote
about fragile nails to
endorse a product called
Hard as Hoof, available
at Walmart stores and
probably others.
The B vitamin biotin is
said to harden nails.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My next-door neighbor
turned yellow, bright
yellow. I had never seen
that before.
Her husband says
she has jaundice. What
exactly is that? How is it
treated? C.M.
ANSWER: Jaundice
indicates that the skin
and the whites of the
eyes have turned yel-
low. It's not an illness. It
comes from the French
word for yellow.
Jaundice indicates
liver trouble. When the
liver is functioning nor-
mally, it clears the blood
of bilirubin, a byproduct
of worn-out red blood
cells. If the liver's not up
to par, bilirubin levels
in the blood rise, and
that turns the skin and
whites of the eyes yellow.
Your neighbor's doctor
has the task of finding
the cause of jaundice.
Only if the cause is
identified can the liver
be properly treated.
Dr. Donohue regrets
that he is unable to
answer individual letters,
but he will incorporate
them in his column
whenever possi-'/.

Filtering out a problem


Dear Heloise: I always
wet a paper coffee filter
before inserting it in the
coffee maker. This way, it
adheres to the sides of the
filter chamber and does
not fold over once the cof-
fee has started percolating
or dripping. It prevents the
coffee grinds from floating
down into the coffeepot. -
Susan B., Edison, N.J.
A very good hint that
prevents one of those
little annoying "things"
and can start the day off
right. This is a good hint
for all coffee drinkers. I
start my day with coffee
and have many coffee-
blend recipes that you
can make yourself, such
as Mocha, Vienna and
Orange, available in my
Heloise's Flavored Coffees
and Teas pamphlet. To or-
der one, just send $3 with
a long, self-addressed,
stamped (65 cents) enve-
lope to: Heloise/Coffee &
Tea, P.O. Box 795001, San
Antonio, TX 78279-5001.
After dumping the used
filter and grounds, put
a new filter in the coffee
maker so it's ready for the
next time. Heloise

Condiment
combinations
Dear Readers: Many
of us have a hodgepodge
of fast-food and takeout
condiment packets. In a
college dorm or traveling
on the road, these packets
can be essential in mak-
ing a few extra staples:
Ketchup + soy sauce
barbecue sauce


Hints from Heloise

Soy sauce + sugar
packets
teriyaki sauce
Crushed red pepper +
soy sauce
hoisin sauce
Ketchup + crushed red
pepper
cocktail sauce
Mayonnaise + relish
tartar sauce
Enjoy the taste of conve-
nience turned home-style! If
you have a wacky combina-
tion, write to let me know at:
Heloise/Condiments, PO.
Box 795000, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5000, or email me
at Heloise@Heloise.com.
- Heloise

Be more specific
Dear Heloise: Why not
encourage the next genera-
tion of cooks by stating in
recipes the kind of onion
and measurable quantity?
There are so many sizes
and varieties of onions:
green, white, yellow, etc.,
and the right amount and
taste can make or break a
recipe. "Chop one onion"
doesn't cut it. If ingredients
are too vague on a new
recipe, only experienced
cooks can figure it out. -

Straying husband could have D FILLMORE By BruceTinsley

picked up more than a hooker / .Ae m ay A
DEAR ABBY: I found II O, 'O
out my husband has "& "U 0OA I O AMTTP J W Vtf i "A 4i C
been corresponding with V l A I "" W &o.
prostitutes he picked up N 1 a,,5 f .
when we went on vaca-
tion. He emailed them
twice, but the second one
hurt me the most. He sent
her money. I confronted
him nnd Inrnc r dw1, to and


the marriage, but we have
a son.
He denied having sexual
contact with the women
and said he was just flirt-
ing, so I forgave him. But I
told him I won't tolerate it
a third time. He agreed to
have marriage counseling
and do his part to convince
me he will change.
Is it worth it to try again
for the sake of our son? I
don't trust him anymore,
but I still love him. -
READY TO LET GO
DEAR READY: When
a man gives money to a
hooker, it's usually for a
reason. The reason isn't
charity; it's for services
he wants rendered. (And
they don't take money in
arrears.)
No one can decide for
you whether or not to stay
in the marriage, but before
making any decisions,
make it your first priority
to contact your doctor and
be checked for STDs. Who
knows what your husband
might have picked up
while "flirting."
If you do decide to re-
main in the marriage, you'd
be wise to schedule regular
appointments for STD
checkups. Your husband
has shown himself to be
not only a philanderer but
also a liar.
DEAR ABBY: I have been
meaning to write to you
for a long time. Now that
we have gone through an-
other year of Mother's Day
and Father's Day, would
you PLEASE acknowledge
those of us who did
NOT have a parent who
deserved to be honored?
Some people should not
be allowed to be parents! I
dread these commercial-
ized days every year. Our
planet does not lack for
population. We don't need
more people.
There are horror stories
every day in the media
about child abuse, yet


Dear Abby

you honor these people
without qualification. For
those who have parents
who deserve to be hon-
ored, I'm happy for you.
But the celebration is only
salt in the wounds of those
of us who wish we'd never
been born.-ONE OF
THEM IN LONGMONT,
COLO.
DEAR ONE OF THEM:
I agree that the com-
mercialization of certain
holidays can be painful
for those who cannot join
in the celebration. This
would include children
and adults who were
abused or neglected by
their parents, as well as
those who no longer have
living parents.
I doubt many people
remain childless for the
public good. Usually there
are deeply personal rea-
sons for it. For people who
are childless by choice,
every day is an affirmation
of their decision. However,
for those who want
children and cannot have
them, their loss can be
excruciating.
DEAR ABBY: Can you
give any advice for a male
in his 50s who is still a
virgin, who is afraid of
being intimate and hasn't
even kissed a girl since
high school? Is it OK to live
and enjoy life this way, or
is sex something that every
human should experience?
- CURIOUS IN FLORIDA
DEAR CURIOUS: If
someone is happy and
enjoying life having never
had sexual relations, then
it's OK. However, if you
are still a virgin because
of fear of intimacy, this is
something to discuss with
a psychologist to help you
understand what caused
your fear and inability to
trust, because you could
be getting more out of life
than you have settled for.


Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and
the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." -
John 14:6.
Don't waste time trying something else. Be
obedient. Believe only You will be glad you took Him
at His word. "In him is life."

Opening lead: Jack of 0

Finesses, finesses everywhere, yet
declarer landed a good small slam in
hearts by spurning them all!
North's jump to three no trump
was a balanced game force in hearts.
With such extreme distribution,
South correctly judged that there
would be excellent play for slam
even though the high-card count
would suggest otherwise the


minor-suit high cards held by the
enemy were not going to take many
tricks.
West led the jack of diamonds, and
declarer was delighted with the
contract. The first trick was won with
the ace perforce. Declarer crossed to
the table with the king of spades,
cashed the king of diamonds for a
spade discard and ruffed a diamond
in the closed hand. Next, a club to the
ace provided the entry to lead a trump
toward the closed hand and, when
East showed out, declarer rose with
the ace and threw West on lead by
exiting with the queen of trumps.
Now the advantage of eliminating
the diamond suit became obvious.
West could not lead another diamond
since that would give a ruff-sluff and
the contract. But neither black suit
was any better. A spade would be into
declarer's A-J tenace and a club
would allow declarer to ruff away the
king, cross to the board with a trump
and discard the jack of spades on the
high club in dummy.
