Venice Mayor John Holic thinks the city may be
owed a share of tax revenue Sarasota County
collects for ambulance services.


Holic talks of'dual taxation'


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice Mayor John Holic apprised
fellow city council members recently
of his research on county-provided
emergency medical services, and
whether city residents are paying too
much for them.
He concluded that they are.
The city isn't sharing in the revenue


raised by the county, Holic said, call-
ing it "dual taxation."
He estimated the county brings in
$3.1 million annually for EMS service,
and the city of Venice might be eligible
for as much as $1 million annually.
"If that's the case, it's been going
on for years," he said. "That's a lot of
money."
It's important, he said, because
each year the city considers whether


to raise the millage rate for taxpay-
ers in order to provide a full range of
services.
Holic admitted his research isn't
complete. He ran into difficulty
gathering data.
County elected officials in-
sisted he work through the county
administrator.

TAXATION 15


State


slashes


Medicaid


bills

By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County's Medicaid
bill from the state had dropped
dramatically when the Agency
for Health Care Administration
released its new numbers last
week.
The county, whose earlier
bill from the state was about
$7 million, now has a final, state-
certified amount, as of March 31,
of about $3.6 million, a decrease
of about 48 percent.
State legislation enacted in
March gives the state author-
ity to withhold a county's
portion of the half-cent
sales tax for past claims, and
revenue sharing for future
claims. Counties were told
they had to prove billing in-
accuracies in order to receive
a refund or a credit.
The reaction to the new
law by the counties and
the Florida Association of
Counties was swift: Led by the
FAC, 55 counties includ-
ing Sarasota, Charlotte and
DeSoto filed a lawsuit.
The counties can accept
the new numbers by Sept. 1
and agree to pay 85 percent
of the amount, or continue to
dispute the amount of rejected
Medicaid charges. Those listed
as plaintiffs in the lawsuit need
to decide whether to pursue
their case.
"Staff is still gathering
information, so we (commis-
sioners) don't know what our
options are," Sarasota County
Commission Chair Christine
Robinson said Friday.
The commission is scheduled
to discuss the issue during its
Aug. 20 meeting.
When the state first released
the total amount of the disputed
Medicaid claims, the figure was
more than $373 million. The
new figure released this week is
about $172.3 million, less than
half the original total.
FAC Executive Director
Christopher Holley said in a
letter dated Aug. 1 that the as-
sociation "sincerely appreciates
the efforts" made by AHCA to

No more seaweed cleanup planned

Sarasota County's Blind Pass public beach has seaweed scattered along the shoreline. The county started cleaning up seaweed at Lido and Siesta Key public
beaches Monday, but had no immediate plans to clean public beaches south of Siesta Key.


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

For more than a week,
onshore winds have been
blowing seaweed onto area
beaches.
County employees cleaned
public portions of Lido and
Siesta Key beaches Monday
and Tuesday. The county has
removed about 200 tons of
seaweed from beaches since
July 1, according to a press
release.
No cleanup are planned for
public beaches south of Siesta
Key to Manasota Key. Owners
of private Gulf-front proper-
ties are expected to clean up
their own beach properties


- if they find the seaweed
troublesome.
Brigitte Zanatti, a Swiss
tourist who has visited
Englewood and Manasota Key
for 20 years said Friday the
seaweed was wet at Blind Pass
Beach Park and had a stench
that might bother some
people. But Monday, she said,
the seaweed was dry and was
no problem.
Arcadia residents Ron and
Barb Watson visit Blind Pass
Beach at least once a week.
Seaweed, Barb said, is "just a
natural phase."
Jeff Kranz, a Venice resident
who regularly fishes at Blind
Pass Beach, also saw the
seaweed strewn on the beach


as part of nature.
"It's good for hiding bait
fish," Kranz said. "People here
are just not used to it."
The seaweed on area
beaches poses no health
threat to humans, according
to Sarasota County officials.
"Seaweed can be a minor in-
convenience, but it also helps
protect the beach from ero-
sion and is a vital part of the
food chain for shore birds and
other animals," said George
Tatge, Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation manager.
No fresh seaweed could
be seen in the shallows
Monday. But natural or not,
Sarasota County officials aren't
turning a blind eye to the


accumulation of seaweed on
beaches.
"Sarasota County lifeguards
along with county parks and
recreation staff will continue
to monitor seaweed accumu-
lations and report areas that
need to be cleaned," a press
release stated. "The county
removes seaweed that exceeds
five cubic yards for more than
two miles."
When or whether Sarasota
County will clean public
beaches south of Siesta Key to
Manasota Key was not deter-
mined Monday.
Sarasota County spokesman
Curt Preisser said the county

SEAWEED 15

NEWS EDITOR

Editor's note: Years of
contentious city elections got
people thinking about basic
governmental issues. Last year
the city appointed a charter
review board. This occasional
series highlights the discussion


it's having on key issues.

The city of Venice Charter
Review Committee continues
its extended discussion over
whether to grant the city
manager more power.
Last week members voted to
adopt a preliminary recom-
mendation to give the city


manager authority to fire the
police chief or the fire chief
without council's approval.
Currently the city manager
appoints the fire and police
chief positions with council's
advice and consent. That
wouldn't change.
Under the latest recom-
mendation, the city manager


would no longer need coun-
cil's consent to fire them.
Most members agreed
hiring a professional city
manager means entrusting the
person in that position with
the responsibility of making
such a tough call.

A jury trial to decide the
claims of a Venice police
officer who is suing the city
of Venice began Monday in
the federal Middle District
Court in Tampa.
Demitri N. Serianni, who
filed suit in September
2010, claims former police
chief Julie Williams, mem-
bers of the police force and


former city manager Isaac
Turner created a hostile
work environment that led
him to seek counseling.
Serianni was disci-
plined a number of times
and eventually put on a
plan of improvement.
He complained about be-
ing reprimanded and being
put on the improvement
plan, and said he feared
retaliation for exercising
his First Amendment


right in testifying on
behalf of a fellow officer at a
disciplinary hearing.
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo, one of a num-
ber of city council mem-
bers on the witness list,
was called by Serianni's
attorney to testify Monday.
Carlesimo said he testi-
fied that he didn't have
any firsthand knowledge
of the accusations.
Serianni and the city


have met numerous times,
including during a manda-
tory mediation session,
to work out a financial
settlement but to no avail.
An independent report
released in August 2011
by Phil Rosenberg, of The
HR Doctor Inc., found
there was no basis to sus-
tain Serianni's allegations
involving retaliation or
unlawful discrimination.

Experience Cadillac the Crest way


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

With Crest Cadillac celebrat-
ing the opening of its upgraded
location at 2367 South Tamiami
Trail South, newly designed
2012 Cadillacs and its 21st year
in business, I spoke to Jeffrey
Kaminske, executive manager,
about the new strategy driving
this successful business.
"It is the Crest Cadillac
experience treating every
customer in such a memorable
way so when it is complete
they tell someone else how
great it was," he said. "It is
necessary to go outside of the
automobile business and look
at companies like the Ritz-
Carlton, Nordstrom and Disney
to ask what they do for their
success. The hotel room is the
same size as others, but it is the
way you are greeted, knowing
your name, taking care of any
problem as quickly as possible,
that distinguishes the prestige
businesses."
A stable workforce is impor-
tant too. A lot of salespeople
have been there for many years,
said Kaminske, who also noted

of Crest Cadillac in South Venice,
stands in front of the new GM flag-
ship corporate-style Cadillac master
dealership.

that Terry Rumberger, the parts
manager, is in his 23rd year and
Chris Hill, office manager, has
been there since 1999.
Nine years ago, Kaminske
went through the Ritz-Carlton
employee orientation program,
then with colleagues wrote
Crest's first employee standards.
In the auto industry it used to
be you had to have a great car,
he said, but today you have to
have the car, the facility and
a great experience for people
coming through the door. That
is his Crest Cadillac experience.
"Making sure when they


come they are greeted with a
smile and welcomed, ensuring
the oil change was done right,
efficiently, the car is clean and
neat when it is given back -
those are the minimum," he
said. "Our goal is the perfect
customer experience."
Crest has been a Cadillac
master dealer for the past 17
years.
The Cadillac dealership
opened in 1988 on the bypass
where Sunset Kia of Venice is
now located. In October 1999 it
acquired the Gulf Buick Oldsmo-
bile shop; in 2001 Buick went to
an island dealership. It operated
as an Oldsmobile Cadillac shop
until GM announced elimination
of the Oldsmobile line, when it
became a Cadillac dealership
again.
Owned by Robert Geyer and
his partner in this store, Vance
Dickinson, Crest is a part of
the Sunset Automotive Group,
which has 17 car lines at 14
locations.
Joining the auto industry
in 1975, Kaminske became
general manager of Crest
Cadillac in May 1990 with 28
employees in sales, service and


administration. The primary
service area is from the Peace
River north to Osprey, but there
are a lot of out-of-state transac-
tions with winter residents and
vacationers.
In 1990 sales totaled 150 new
and five used cars, compared
to the current year's sales of
500 new and 600 preowned,
primarily certified preowned,
Cadillacs. Five years ago these
luxury vehicles were built
for comfort; today they are
designed for drivability and
comfort, part of a marketing
push toward younger people
coming into the luxury car
market.
"Over the past 13 years
purchasing has changed,"
Kaminske said. "Fifty percent of
vehicles we sell are leased com-
pared to 5 percent in 1999."
The remodelling serves to
further the Cadillac brand
and enhance the dealership
experience.
"The luxury car experience
is the same in all cities, so
General Motors pushed us very
hard to renovate our flagship
franchise using their new
image, primarily limestone


exterior with their custom-
designed interior with black tile
floors," he said. "The service
department changed. It is like
registering in a hotel and not a
service area. In the upgraded
refreshment areas are two
Wi-Fi work stations for younger
customers wanting to stay to
do a half-hour of work.
"Our timing was planned for
the introduction of the new
XTS with the 'Q' system an iPad
on the dashboard, eliminating
all the other controls. In Sep-
tember we have a second new
model, the ATS, the smallest
entry-level sedan priced in the
low to mid-30s.
In the community Crest has
been a major sponsor for the
Plantation Community Foun-
dation for 13 years and it has
worked with other communi-
ties and most local charity in
one way or another.
"Dealers cannot control the
quality of the cars they sell,
but they can control how their
people act when you come in,
and for us it is the Crest Cadil-
lac experience," he said.

Be a fan
Tervis of North Venice
has teamed up with ad
agency Sterling-Rice


Group to develop a cam-
paign with the simple,
yet poignant, theme "Be
a fan, even when you
can't be."
"We're totally on board
with what it means to
be an ultimate fan,"
said Rich Kaplan, Tervis
president of sales and
marketing and chief
brand officer. "This
campaign embodies the
'full of fun' personality of
Tervis."
Ads feature costumed
ultimate fans living
out their dreams in
the unlikeliest of situa-
tions. A fun piece of the
ultimate fan puzzle is the
integration of two social
media campaigns. There
is a "Fan-tasy Contest"
encouraging consum-
ers to submit photos
of themselves to win a
monthly "Grand Fan-
tasy" prize.

Help Mobile Meals
This year's demand
is expected to exceed


51,000 meals, but the
tough economic climate
has made it difficult
for Venice Area Mobile
Meals Inc. to maintain
services as the number of
unpaid meals increases.
It has a fundraising
goal of $1,095 to provide
365 home-delivered
meals for a deserving
client for one year and
is seeking donations
online. To help, visit
www.gulfcoastgives.org/
projects/767.
The organization
serves the greater Venice
area. An estimated
80 percent of meal
recipients can afford
their meals and are billed
monthly, but the other
20 percent would like the
service and depend upon
donations. All funds
raised go directly to pay
for meals for eligible
residents.

No local ripple effect from convention


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Reports indicate Venice
won't be getting a share of
the housing revenue being
spent in the Tampa Bay
region during the upcom-
ing Republican National
Convention. Hotel manag-
ers contacted all report no
local reservations specifi-
cally for the August event.
The convention begins
Aug. 27.
"I am disappointed
because people have a
concept of Venice being
so far away," said Janet
Bowman, general man-
ager of the Best Western
Plus Ambassador, 400
Commercial Court. "It is


not at all; we are only an
hour from Tampa."
Marlene Merkle, execu-
tive vice president of the
Venice Area Board of
Realtors, said that since
advising her members of
the opportunity for them
and their clients to rent
homes and properties
she has heard "absolutely
nothing."
"They may not be
coming this far south,"
she said. "It is quite a haul
driving back and forth to
Tampa daily."
"I have not had any
bookings," said Laura
Kopple, Realtor and
owner of Laura B. Kopple
Inc. Realtors, 4343 South
Tamiami Trail. "I did have


several owners call me,
but their homes did not
qualify."
"Venice is not so far,
but I have not got any-
thing all the way down
here," said Diana Metcalf,
general manager of the
Holiday Inn Express, 380
Commercial Court.
Patricia Cain, general
manager of the Hampton
Inn & Suites, 881 Venetia
Bay Blvd., agreed that
Venice may be just too far,
but may still get people
who want to get away
from all that activity.
"We prefer to benefit
from the leisure travelers
who will return," she said,
"and our bookings are
already up for August and


September, following our
best first quarter since
2008."
With a few weeks still to
go, Venice may yet see a
little convention business.
"I am not sure all the
reservations have been
made," said John Ryan,
president and CEO of the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce. "Venice is at
the very end of the Tampa
Bay partnership of St.
Petersburg, Tampa and
Clearwater. The entire
general area is probably
able to handle accommo-
dations, but if they max
out on hotel rooms, then
visitors are going to have
a look at this area.
"The chamber is not


funded to do tourism, but "Labor union protesters


we act as a tourism out-
reach, giving people who
contact us information
on accommodations."
Virginia Haley, president
of Visit Sarasota County,
said its experience is that
although this event is
similar to the Super Bowl
in some ways, it differs
because it is all business.
Convention attendees stay
at assigned hotels and
do not stay on after the
event over the Labor Day
weekend because they are
eager to get back in the
trenches.
"We do have some
corporate business on
Longboat Key and the
Ritz-Carlton," she said.


have block-room reserva-
tions with south Manatee
hotels. Even for the Super
Bowl, attendees who
select their hotels rarely go
beyond Bee Ridge Road.
'August is a pretty
quiet month when we are
pro-active with advertis-
ing online targeting the
Tampa, Orlando and Lake-
land corridor encouraging
residents to visit southwest
Florida. This year I am
hoping some residents in
the greater Tampa market
will decide to take the
week off work to avoid the
horrendous congestion of
the Tampa event."

more time to devote to

is this: Sarasota County

Besides the city of
North Port and Long
Boat Key, no other city
is paying extra non-ad
valorem millage for its
ambulance service be-
sides Venice, Holic said.
"We are paying for
all the fire service from
Venice," Holic said.
"The county charges
for ambulance service,
but that ambulance
service requires the city
of Venice to send a fire
engine and firefighters to
about 80 percent of calls.
So, the county is using

and it's our obligation

OURl VIEW



Options leave no excuse not to vote


ne of the great innovations
that came about after the de-
bacle of the 2000 presidential
election in Florida was the institu-
tion of early voting throughout the
state.
Along with no-excuse absentee
voting, it encourages wider par-
ticipation in the electoral process.
Voters no longer have to worry about
being out of town or buried under
piles of work on election day. Voters
presumably won't get scared away
by the thought of lines backed up
at polling places. It increases our
options, which is a good thing. And
it's primarily intact, despite unnec-
essary fiddling by the Legislature
this year.
In the 2008 General Election in
Sarasota County, 34 percent of the
voters took advantage of early voting,


while another 26 percent mailed in
"absentee" ballots. The popularity
of early voting is such that in recent
elections voters were more likely to
find longer lines at the centralized
early voting locations than at their
own poll site.
But those numbers are for the
General Election. With early voting
under way, it's doubtful anyone
will have to worry about a crush at
the polls. Primaries rarely get large
turnouts, even those featuring hot
races.
In 2004, only 18 percent of all
registered voters in Charlotte County
took the time to vote in the primary
election, compared to 71 percent
who turned out in the General
Election. The figure for the primary
rose to 30 percent four years later
but dropped to 23 percent in the


off-presidential year 2010.
Will there be bigger numbers this
year? The activity is primarily in the
Republican Party, although Charlotte
County Democrats and independents
also can vote in the primary for
sheriff. North Port's three commis-
sion races are nonpartisan, open to
all voters in the city. But that's about
it for non-Republicans in the bigger-
headline races.
Early voting in Sarasota County
began Saturday and runs eight days,
until Saturday, Aug. 11. Polls are open
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Although
96 total hours of early voting are
permitted, we're only getting 64 hours.
The fewer hours may be justified,
considering historically low turnout
in the primary, but we fully expect the
full 96 allowed by law in the Novem-
ber General Election.


Sarasota's early voting sites are at
the Supervisor of Elections Office
at 4000 South Tamiami Trail, South
Venice; the SOE office at 13640
Tamiami Trail, North Port; the Gulf
Gate Library, 7112 Curtiss Ave.,
Sarasota; the North County Library,
2801 Newtown Blvd., Sarasota; and
the main SOE office, 2001 Adams
Lane, Sarasota.
Anyone can vote at any location
in his or her county. Just remember
to bring a photo ID with a signature.
Those include a driver license, student
ID, passport or retirement center,
neighborhood association or public
assistance ID.
Before heading out, we'd suggest
a review of the ballot or the primary
election profiles printed in our elec-
tion guide last month. Vote smart.
Be prepared.


No place like home


awl


Tim
Smolarick


Imagine this, if you will: It's
the bottom of the ninth inning
and the home team is down by
a run.
There are two outs with a
runner on second. The batter is
standing there waiting for the
payoff pitch as the count is full.
The runner on second takes
an extra lead step as he knows
the pitcher is not going to try a
throw to second in this situa-
tion. Both dugouts are on their
feet as the opposing pitcher
gets the call from his catcher.
In the stands, the fans are
all focused on this situation
and the one guy who has the
ball, the pitcher. For some
fans he is a hero with another
opportunity to save the day;
for the home fans the hope is
he either misses wide or the
pitch is just a little slower than
the last effort.
Either way, it comes down to
the next pitch a hit ties it, a
walk starts the whole sequence
over.
As the pitcher winds up, it's
like the world has stopped. The
vendors stop hawking peanuts
and hotdogs to watch the pitch
as an eerie silence, albeit brief,
envelopes the ballpark. It's the
moment of truth as the pitcher
lets the ball go.
I'll leave the ending to your
imagination, as it really does
not matter. The beauty of base-
ball is that as long as it doesn't
rain, everyone can play it again
tomorrow. From Little League
to the majors, baseball touches
the lives of those who follow
the game in a profound way.
I experienced baseball as a
coach for my son, who started
at 4 years old. I continued to
coach him until the lure of
basketball and soccer took him
away from the game.


I remember every opening
day as vividly as I remember
yesterday. I remember the wet
grass of our field, the smell of
clay after the pregame prepara-
tions. I remember the kids
showing up in clean uniforms,
smiling and acting like their
baseball heroes. I remember the
warm-ups, the banter before we
took the field and all the inspi-
rational speeches given to those
boys right before the game.
Those memories have not
left me or my son. Often we
will remember a game, a
play or a funny incident that
happened and just talk about
the good old days like we were
professionals remembering the
times we had.
What I can't recall is never
having a field to play on. What
never happened was waiting
until other leagues finished
playing and then getting to go
out and play baseball. What I
can't recall is not having the
opportunity to practice on a
home field or work on a home
field when there was clay to
spread or grass to be mowed.
What I can't recall is our teams
not having the swagger that
comes with a home crowd
during a baseball game.
I know all of you can
remember a time when
somehow baseball touched
your life. Now it is time to pay
it forward. If we can send a
spacecraft to Mars and get
pictures back instantly, tell me
why can't we give the Chal-
lenger Baseball organization
an opportunity to just play
baseball? Why can't we give
those players a home field that
all of us can be proud of?
What's the holdup? Ball parks
are built all over this country
every year in all kinds of set-
tings. Let Challenger build and
then we can all go out to the
ballpark, have a hot dog and
watch the game America loves.
I promise you the game will be
played in its purest sense, for
the love of the game.
C'mon Venice, it's two outs in
the bottom of the ninth. We are
the home team, after all.

Charged. I'm calling about
the Let'em Have It item
entitled "Who else?" The
person called in because
they were wondering if other
people are being charged
on the beach since yoga on
the beach is being charged.
The editor's note states: "No
charges are currently being
levied on the yoga instruc-
tor." The editor has wrong,
wrong, wrong information. As
of June 1, the yoga instructor
has to pay an hourly fee and a
weekly permit fee to Sarasota
County. Out of the goodness
of her heart and private
donations, she's keeping the
classes free to spite the fact
that the county is charging
her. You are misinformed
and not every one is being
charged. Just the church on
Friday night for gospel and
yoga classes. Everybody else
is down there doing their
thing for free. The rules don't
apply to everybody, just
certain people. And most
definitely, yoga.
Double standard. I'm sort
of upset, because it would
be very nice if the Catholic
Church went under the juris-
diction of the NCAA. There's
a double standard happening
here, and it's absolutely a
crime. Incidents are similar;
crimes are similar.
Raise it. I'm calling about
what's important, maintain-
ing service levels or keeping
tax rates the same? Previous
city councils had the oppor-
tunity to raise the millage
rate modestly and maintain
the services that the city
has become accustomed to
paying for. Now so many
people have left the city and
become disgruntled, there's
an opportunity for future
lawsuits and grievances by
personnel, speaking specifi-
cally of the finance director.
It's time for the millage rate to
be increased. I hope this cur-
rent city council will do what's


Let 'em


Have It
right for the city of Venice.
I'm tired of seeing things like
when I read council didn't
even have it in the budget
to pay pensions. People are
going for years without any
raises. We're going to lose
those people. We're going to
lose all that experience and
familiarity with how the city
of Venice has been run. We're
going to lose the good people.
People who are less qualified
are going to stick it out and
the good people are going to
go on to greener pastures.
Irony. "Dog attacks owner"
and "Slow going for dog-
gie dining" were two ironic
front-page headlines in the
Gondolier Sun. It explains very
well why restaurateurs should
be worried about allowing
dogs to accompany outside
diners. Sanitation aside, the
real concern should be the
erratic and unpredictable
nature of some dogs, who
could be agitated by small
children, traffic, sudden
movement or loud noise,
especially around strangers
and in an unfamiliar setting.
People have dined out for
centuries without their dogs.


The liability for even one
attack on a patron or the wait
staff is a bad trade-off.
Stay inside. Venice Regional
Medical Center sensibly has a
smoke-free zone on hospital
property. When I drove by
today the smell of smoke was
obvious. If you smell smoke,
you're breathing it. A sign
should be posted to advise

Tuesday, June 5, at 11 a.m.
behind the Venice Post Office
on the corner of Barcelona
Avenue and Harbor Drive
near the tennis courts. Just
after the accident, between
a minivan and a tan car, a
group of young adults in the
area, all wearing the same
color T-shirts, were picking
up papers and cleaning up
the area. A group of them
approached my car to ask
if they could pray for me.

the accident, please contact

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Honor KMI
Editor:
Does anyone know the real
name of what some call the
"North Bridge"? Even though
there are no signs, it is actually
designated as the "Hatchett
Creek Bascule."
I feel it should have a name
honoring the Kentucky Mili-
tary Institute, just like we have
honored the circus by having
the Circus Bridge. KMI was in
Venice much longer than the
circus. KMI opened in 1932
and did not close until 1970 -
almost 40 years. The staff and
students of KMI supported the
community all those years and
still do. In April 2013 they will
be having their annual alumni
meeting here.
Larry Humes, a KMI gradu-
ate, and I have started a peti-
tion to name the bridge "KMI
Bridge." So far we have 160
signatures on our petition site,
www.kmibridge.com. Wouldn't
it be great to be able to have
the KMI Bridge dedicated
when the alumni are here?
By the way, the KMI build-
ing, now called the Venice
Centre Mall, has recently been
designated as a National His-
toric Site. This is in honor of it
being built as the San Marco
Hotel in 1926.

Help to honor WWII vets
Editor:
Flying season is over. The
daily high temperatures in our
nation's capital have soared,
often to triple digits. That
means its way too hot to take
our World War II veterans to
Washington to see their long
overdue memorial.
So, of necessity, the South-
west Florida Honor Flight
hub, along with the more than
100 other hubs across the
country, takes the summer off
from flying. But none of us
can afford to take any time off
from raising funds to facilitate
these amazing trips or from


our search to find local World
War II veterans who have not
yet seen their World War II
memorial.
As we all know, time is
running out. Most of that
Greatest Generation are now
in their 90s. Their health is
declining and their mobility
is not what it was. Sadly, we
are losing these amazing men
and women at the rate of
more than 1,200-plus per day,
nationwide.
Will you join us, please, in
providing these deserving
veterans with a trip to see their
World War II memorial, other
war memorials and Arlington
National Cemetery? Help us
fly again in the fall. Donate
as generously as you can and
help a World War II veteran
you know apply for a flight.

Not black and white
Editor:
Thus far the news media
have given the impression that
Trayvon Martin, a young black
man, was killed by a white
man. The truth is that Trayvon
was killed by a Hispanic man.
If you think that a Hispanic
man and a white man are the
same, just drop in to your
local affirmative action office.
You will discover that they are
totally different animals.
What the media are doing is
very dangerous for white men.
If Zimmerman is acquitted and
Rodney King riots result, it will
once again be open season on
white guys.

Simple rules
for roundabouts
Editor:
The Venice-area roundabout


has been a problem only
because many drivers do not
pay attention to the signs.
Many of us find that when-
ever there is heavy traffic to
and from the expressway, that
we get to sit while the heavy
traffic goes by. I suggested
a sign posting to Sarasota
County last year and it came
through. Unfortunately, many
drivers cannot read signs.
How to never have to stop
on the roundabout:
1. If you are driving to the
next exit on the right, stay in
the right lane only. Do not use
the right lane for any other
reason.
2. If you are driving straight
ahead, or driving to go left,
then stay in the left lane only.
Do not use the left lane for any
other reason.


3. Do not drive m
mph.

Did it without help
Editor:
President Obama told us,
"If you've got a business, you
didn't build that. Somebody
else made that happen." He
would know, wouldn't he? He
has never earned a paycheck
from the private sector. He has
never had to meet a payroll.
He has never produced any-
thing. He has lived off money
taken from those who have
produced taxpayers. "Some-
body else" has supported him
his entire life.
When I was elected CEO of
a printing company in 1992,
it had a negative net worth of
$10 million. Half of our sales
force left in fear of bankruptcy.
The bank called our note.
Suppliers filed suit against
us. Competitors aggressively
courted our largest custom-
ers. Our 180 employees feared
for their next paycheck. But
we got to work on fixing the
company.
Management compensation
was reduced by 40 percent.
Top management went
without any compensation
for 10 months. But we made
certain that our wage-earning
employees never missed a
paycheck.
We made it. It took three
years but we made it. We
became the largest calendar-
manufacturing company in
the South.
Mr President, you are
wrong, so wrong. Like thou-
sands of other entrepreneurs
and risk-takers, we did build
that business. There was no
"somebody else." No govern-
ment. No Solyndra-type
handout. It was us. We made it
happen.
The president's words are
shameful.

Venice spreads goodwill in Panama


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High
baseball team is the
reigning Class 7A state
champion, but last week
the squad established an
international presence
that transcends the play-
ing field.
The Indians (in con-
junction with Score
International, an organi-
zation that specializes in
short-term mission trips)
went on a week-long
goodwill trip to Panama
to assist local villages.
Players and coaches
provided food, supplies
and baseball equipment
(donated by various
organizations including
First Baptist Church,
Venice Little League and
North Port Little League)
to those who are less
privileged.
VHS head coach Craig
Faulkner said he hopes
the trip allowed his team
to develop perspective on
just how fortunate they

are to live and play in the
U.S.
"I want them to
appreciate the things
we have," said Faulkner.
"We have plenty of food.
We live in the greatest
country in the world,
and I want them to
appreciate that."
The message seems to
have gotten through to
his players.
Senior Danny Raynor
said, "You take for


granted the little things
you have and the area
you live in until you get a
chance to see how other
countries live. I learned
from the people there
that no matter how little
you have in life, you can
always be happy with the
things you do have."
Junior Ryan Miller
added, "I wanted to
go and see how much
different things were in a
Latin American country


and see what we take for
granted here that they
don't have there. I learned
to appreciate everything
I have. It was absolutely
humbling on the highest
level."
During the trip, a
typical day consisted of
the team purchasing a
large amount of food at
a supermarket, rationing
the food into individual
bags and delivering it to
the church of whichever


village they were visiting
that day. The boys then
presented families with
their food and posed
for pictures with them.
Faulkner said the villag-
ers were thankful for the
team's efforts, but both
Raynor and Miller believe
the team benefited as
much as, if not more
than, the locals.
"Just the looks on their
faces said it all," said
Raynor. "Walking into
a village with bags and
bags of food knowing
that just this food alone
would help many families

for a long time there
is no better feeling in the
world."
Miller said, "It felt
amazing! This was the
first time I had done
anything like this and it
just made everyone feel
good about themselves
knowing that they were
making a difference in
somebody's life."
In between its
charitable endeavors, the
team even got a chance
to sneak in a few games
against elite Panamanian
national teams. Although
the Indians won just one
of their three games,
Faulkner said he was
proud of the way his
team competed against
players he believes
will go on to play
professionally.
In addition to helping
those in need, Raynor
thinks the trip brought
his teammates closer
together and will have
a positive impact on
their performance going
forward.
"Not only were we
playing baseball as a
team, but we also worked
as a team to feed many
villages," he said. "By
spending all that time
together, we all got to
know each other a lot
better off the field."

Kapinsky leads talented VHS secondary


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The VHS football team
opened practice Monday
morning, and head coach
John Peacock is upbeat
about a unit that sports
an interesting blend of


youth and experience.
Four-year starter Qua-
heem Kapinsky and junior
Isaac Whitney will man the
cornerback spots, while
senior Kale Youtzy and
sophomore Beau Perkins
are expected to start at
safety. Junior Shane Bums


will compete for snaps at
corner and Kapinsky will
see time at safety as well.
Peacock said return-
ing starters Kapinsky
and Youtzy have a good
grasp of the defense, but
he sounded particularly
excited about Whitney


and Perkins.
"Isaac Whitney is an
unbelievable competitor
and he's worked hard all
summer," said Peacock.
"We're expecting big
things from him."
Peacock said of Perkins,
"Beau's got a little bit to


learn, but we're excited
about him and once
he gets some varsity
experience under his
belt, around midseason,
he should be fine. He's a
good athlete."

New mowing




program under way


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

After several months of
mowing delays that led
to overgrown grass on
Sarasota County rights
of way, the county has
launched a new mowing
program.
Shared among con-
tractors, it will ensure
that roadsides and
medians are maintained
to county standards of
a maximum of 7 inches
in urban settings and 12
inches in rural settings,
officials say.
Earlier this year,
Bloomings Landscape &
Turf Inc. of Sarasota was
fined $6,700 for delays
in mowing rights of
way, much of it in South
County. County officials
say the company violated
the terms of its $1.8 mil-
lion annual contract
to maintain 2,000-plus
acres by falling behind in
certain areas.
Sarasota now has
restructured its mowing
program by dividing the
county into four mow-
ing areas with separate
contracts. The county
created the districts to
increase performance
and contract account-
ability, according to Dave
Cash, county director of
Operations and Mainte-
nance, rather than award
a single contract county-
wide that included
numerous nonmowing
requirements.
The new contracts are
for six-month periods,
and will be resolicited for
three-year agreements.
"The county has been
performing mowing on
the majority of our main
arterials on a five- to


seven-week rotation
- roughly 1,200 out
of 2,400 acres," county
Field and Horticulture
Services General Man-
ager Spencer Anderson
said Thursday. "With
the summer growing
season in full swing, our
efforts have not provided
the level of service to
be performed by the
contractors."
The four areas are
north rural, north urban,
south rural and south
urban. The south urban
zone includes South
River Road, Pine Street,
Venice Avenue, Venice
Boulevard East, State
Road 776, Center Road,
Jacaranda and Shamrock
boulevards, Venice
Bypass, U.S. 41 South,
Harbor Drive, Pinebrook
Road, and Englewood
and South Venice area
residential streets.
The contract for it was
awarded to Rightmire's
Land Services Inc. of
North Port. The contract
calls for a rate of $86.17
per acre, and covers 839
acres. Rightmire's will
receive about $72,300
a month the largest
of the three contracts
awarded thus far.
"We just have to get it
under control right now
because the grass has
been growing since April
and May," said Right-
mire's Land Services
owner Sherri Rightmire.
"We're getting our routes
all planned out, and
we're working with the
county to work out good
schedules."
Rightmire said she has
a staff of six employees
that will be dedicated
to the project. They
began working S.R. 776

County line Thursday,
and were in the South
Venice residential area
around Shamrock Bou-
levard Friday. With her
crew working full days,
she said, she should have
the area under control in
about three weeks.
The south rural zone,
an area that includes
east Laurel Road, River
Road, Winchester
Boulevard and Warm
Mineral Springs, was
awarded to Reynolds
Mowing Services Inc. of
Venice. Its contract calls
for $44.49 per acre, and
comes out to $12,700 a
month for 285.46 acres.
The north rural zone was
awarded to Storm Tech
Inc. of Sarasota. Its win-
ning bid was $36.73 an
acre for 408 acres. Storm
Tech will be paid about
$15,000 per month.
The north urban zone
contract has not yet been
awarded, but the county
expects to have a con-
tractor assigned by the
end of next week. In the
meantime, county crews
have been consolidated
to focus on mowing the
838-acre zone.
County officials say
the mowing backlog is
expected to be elimi-
nated within 30 days.

Let there be music ... camp


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Venice Summer
Music Camp turned 21
this year.
Still directed by
founder Gayle Heskett,
the camp is sponsored
by the Venice Symphony.
Since the beginning, ses-
sions have been held the
last two weeks of July.
Classes are held at
Island Village Montessori
School. The faculty
includes symphony direc-
tor Ken Bowermeister,
members of the sympho-
ny, music teachers from
area schools and college
students studying to be
music educators. Heskett
teaches at Glenallen
Elementary School in
North Port and has played
bassoon in the symphony
the past eight years.
About one-third of the
students receive some
form of financial aid
to attend camp. Local
philanthropist Kathy
Cellura funded five camp
scholarships this year,
Heskett said.
Designed for students
in grades four-12, the
camp offers classes in
instrumental and vocal
music for beginning and
intermediate students
plus theory classes,
music games, a jazz
band, keyboard lab and
conducting and choral
experience.
David Whitmire was
a student in the first
camp session 21 years
ago. This summer he was
an instructor of music
theory and ukulele at
the camp. During the
performing season he
plays trumpet and drums
in the symphony. A game
of music theory-themed
"Jeopardy" was a fun
learning tool at camp.
Whitmire's sister,
Johanna Fincher, who
sings with the symphony,
is the camp's vocal
teacher.
Her students, ages
8-13, learned "The
Impossible Dream" from
"Man of La Mancha"
for the camp's closing
concert. They were
accompanied by pianist
Jamie Marshall, who
plays trombone with the
Venice Symphony.
The song's title might
have been apropos when
Heskett began the camp,
but with more than 100
students this summer,
that is no longer the case.
Enrollment increased
this year despite the
schedule change of
another music camp that
overlapped the Venice
camp by one week,
she said. Also up is the
number of faculty, which
was more than 20 this
summer, Heskett said.
Brendan Hillock, 10,
and Blake Sheehan, 11,
spent quality camp time
in the piano lab with
teacher Susan Rice.
Peter Sims, the music
director of Island Village
Montessori, teaches
guitar at music camp.
Also a composer, he
listened carefully on one
of the last days of camp
as Andrew Chalaire, 12,
and Melissa Whitham,
13, performed one of his
compositions.
Sophia Scarana, 19,
was one of the younger
faculty members. The
Florida State University
student from Bradenton
played in the Venice
Symphony the past three
years. She worked with
camper Cassie Cohen,

I GOREN BRIDGE

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

696K2QJ9650 QJ64QJ5

Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?

A This is undoubtedly the worst
nine points you could hold, and game
is unlikely unless partner has a super-
maximum. Either transfer to two
hearts or bid two hearts, whatever
your methods. You might have a
further problem if partner invites in
hearts.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

A95K) 10630 KQ66AJ873

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

A If you have a way to show an
invitational raise with only three
trumps, this is the hand for that. If
not, a conservative raise to two hearts
is your only option.

Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

6963 9 A63 0 1076AKJ94

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 14 Pass
9
What action do you take?

A You have a dead minimum
opening bid and so should do as little
as possible to encourage partner.
Rebid two clubs. If partner cannot
take further action, this hand is going
nowhere.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

AAK974 ?AQ6 0KJ9 4 52


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
16 Pass 24

What action do you take?


EAST
Pass


A Your hand is worth another bid,
and it is a matter of whether you
should accent your all-round strength
by bidding two no trump or by
probing for possible diamond support
from partner, in which case four
spades could be the better spot. We
like three diamonds and see how
partner reacts.

Q 5 North South vulnerable, as
South, you hold:

AAQ85 90 A10634AJ95

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

A You have been fixed. There are
those who say that when you have
been fixed, stay fixed, and so pass.
However, we have sympathy for
those who overcall one spade and
hope nothing bad happens.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4J 95 AK872 9546KJ7


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 2Y
26 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You have the equivalent of an
opening bid and support for his suit.
There is no point to wasting time.
Jump to four spades partner
should have play for that.

spring training home.
In addition to sponsor-
ing individual walkers
or creating their own
teams, members of the
public may "pledge the
Bird" to support all four
clubs, which are located
in Sarasota, Newtown,
Venice and North Port.
Individuals can also
support a specific club
in their community by
going online and search-
ing for their club's team
by city.
Walk for the Kids is
a community event to
convey the need for a
safe and enriching place
for kids to go after school
and during the summer.
The most dangerous
time in a child's life are
the hours of 3-7 p.m.
when parents are still
working and kids are out
of school.
For the walk, hundreds
of adults and children
will gather at Ed Smith
Stadium on 12th Street
to raise awareness about
the Boys & Girls Clubs' vi-
sion: children and youth


achieving academic
success, living healthy
lifestyles and becoming
good stewards of our
community.
"We are thrilled that
the Orioles are a lead
partner in the walk,
which is the major an-
nual fundraiser for our
clubs where we strive
to provide a world-class
experience that assures
success is within reach
of every young person
who walks through our
doors," said Bill Sadlo,
president and CEO of
the Boys & Girls Clubs of
Sarasota County.
"Our goal is to have
all members on track
to graduate from high
school with a plan for
the future, demonstrat-
ing good character and
citizenship, and living
a healthy lifestyle. Our
clubs provide after-
school and summer
programs for more than
5,500 children and youth
ages 6 to 18 throughout
Sarasota County."
"The Boys & Girls
Clubs and Major League
Baseball share a special
national partnership. It
was a natural fit for the
Orioles to donate both
the Oriole Bird and Ed
Smith Stadium for the
major annual fundraiser

Study: SMH one of nation's top two hospitals


By KIM SAVAGE
SARASOTA MEMORIAL
HOSPITAL

Sarasota Memorial
Hospital was one of just
two hospitals out
of more than 4,000
nationwide singled
out for demonstrating
the lowest, and therefore
best, readmission rates
in the nation for heart
attack, heart failure and
pneumonia patients.
Newly released data
from the U.S. Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services posted on the
government's Hospital
Compare website show
mortality and readmis-
sion rates for more than


4,600 hospitals nation-
wide. The data show how
often patients died or
were readmitted within
30 days of discharge from
a previous hospital stay
for heart attack, heart
failure or pneumonia.
Sarasota Memorial was
one of only two hospitals
in the nation to perform
well above the national
average in all three
readmission categories
studied. The data, which
cover the three-year
period from July 2008
to June 2011, were
posted this month on
CMS' Hospital Compare
website. An analysis
by Kaiser Health News
spotlighted SMH and


Citrus Memorial Hospital
in Inverness, Fla., as the
only two hospitals in the
nation that had better
than average readmis-
sion rates for all three
conditions.
According to the Kaiser
study, only 1 percent of
hospitals were labeled
as better than average in
heart attack (30 hospi-
tals) or pneumonia cases
(33 hospitals) and only
2 percent (94 hospitals)
were labeled as better
than average in heart
failure.
The study, based on
the most recent Medicare
data available, showed
that:
19.7 percent of heart


attack patients were
readmitted within 30
days of discharge
24.7 percent of heart
failure patients were
readmitted
18.5 percent of
pneumonia patients
were readmitted
In comparison, read-
mission rates at Sarasota
Memorial were 16.2 per-
cent for heart attacks,
19.7 percent for heart
failure and 15.6 percent
for pneumonia. SMH
also scored well on
mortality rates for each
of the three conditions.
The rates are all
"risk-adjusted" which
means they take into
account how sick


patients were, to make
sure hospitals of different
sizes and with different
patient populations can
be compared fairly.
"Of all the achieve-
ments Sarasota
Memorial has earned
in recent years, we're
particularly proud of
our low readmission
rates," said Sarasota
Memorial CEO Gwen
MacKenzie. "We have
many quality goals, but
among the most critical
are reducing readmis-
sions, complications and
mortality.
"Achieving such low
readmission rates is a
tribute to everyone on
our health care team


and the continuum
of care they provide.
It means that we're
following up and
communicating well
with our patients, their
families and each other
to make sure everyone is
on the same page, that
everyone understands
our patients' diagnoses,
their medications, their
plans of care and how to
care for themselves once
they leave the hospital."

Competition. Her message to

absolutely no experience
in writing scripts so I was
stunned when my entry
beat experienced script


writers, some with movie
scripts to their credit."
She said she first heard
about the contest last
year and entered "just
for the challenge." She
didn't win but she did get
a letter of commendation
encouraging her to enter
again this year.
"I took the judges'
comments to heart and
broadened the scope of
my pitch this year. My
idea was for a reality
show called Animation
Wars,'" she said.
Inspiration for her
entry came after she saw
the "amazing animation
student work" being
done at the Ringling
School of Design.
She proposed a na-
tional TV show in which
the winner would get a
job at a major animation
studio.
"I wrote a succinct


script just for the fun
of it and sent it in last
September. I didn't hear
anything for months and
forgot all about it until
I got an email saying
I won. I was over-
whelmed!" Ann says.
She was honored
during a luncheon at the
Longboat Key Club and
Resort. At 75, she was the
oldest winner there.
"What I realized as
folks came up to con-
gratulate me was that
taking risks and having
the courage to believe
in what you write often
has positive results," she
says.
As the president of the
Suncoast Writers Guild in
Englewood, Ann contin-
ually tells members age
is no deterrent to writing
success.
She just proved that in
spades.


Winning the 2012
TV ME Television Pitch
Competition isn't the
only thing that marks
Ann as a winner.
The most precious
thing she won was life
itself. In 1988, at 51,
she was diagnosed with
colorectal cancer.
"At the time, surgery
wasn't as advanced as it
is now and it was a long,
serious ordeal. But I
learned you can survive
it quite well," she says.
That's the message of
hope and encourage-
ment that she has been
giving people for the past
24 years. While teaching
school in Massachusetts,
she became president
of the National Ostomy
Association.
"I've been telling
my story ever since,
encouraging others to
be screened and giving


information to those who
have been diagnosed,"
she said.
She said many power-
ful things came from
surviving colorectal
cancer.
"When you survive
something like that, you
look at life and find the
magic and the awesome
aspects of everyday life,"
she said.
As the author of
two books and several
magazine articles, Ann
has proven a knack for
writing. But many have
learned her greatest gift
is the encouragement
she gives others.

SMH ranks high for women's health


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota Memorial
Hospital ranks among
the top 5 percent in
the nation for excel-
lence in women's
health and maternity
care, according to a
new report released by
HealthGrades.
According to infor-
mation provided by
Sarasota Memorial,
SMH, the only medi-
cal center in Sarasota
County that delivers
babies, is the only
hospital in the region
to receive both the
Maternity Care and
Women's Health
Excellence Awards since
its inception and
the only one to rank in
the top 5 percent in the
country in both areas
10 years in a row.
"This is very exciting,"
said Judy Cavallaro,
clinical manager of
Maternity Services at
SMH, said Tuesday. "I'm

YEARS OF EXCELLENCE
Participation in the HealthGrades study was not voluntary; all 4,783 of
the nation's acute care hospitals were evaluated by HealthGrades as part
of its 2012 Trends in Women's Health in American Hospitals report.
The HealthGrades study examined hospitalization records from the
MedPAR database in all 50 states for the years 2008-10. The following
procedures and treatments were analyzed: heart attack, congestive
heart failure, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, stroke,
coronary bypass surgery, peripheral vascular bypass, coronary interven-
tional procedures, resection/replacement of abdominal aorta, carotid
surgery and valve replacement, total knee and total hip replacement
surgeries, spinal surgeries and hip fracture repair.
To be eligible for the HealthGrades award, hospitals must have met
volume requirements in stroke and either coronary bypass or valve
replacements; met the volume requirements in at least six additional
cohorts of the 16 evaluated; and have transferred out less than
10 percent of stroke patients. Volume requirements are a minimum of
30 female discharges over the three years, with at least five in the most
recent year for the cohort.
The Women's Health and Maternity Care Excellence Awards are the
latest in a series that Sarasota Memorial has received from HealthGrades
so far this year, according to hospital spokeswoman Kim Savage. In
February, SMH earned the"America's 50 Best Hospitals" designation,
placing it in the top 1 percent of hospitals for consistently superior
clinical outcomes. SMH is one of only five hospitals in the nation to
receive the organization's two top awards six years in a row.
In 2012, Sarasota Memorial also received HealthGrades'"Distinguished
Hospitals for Clinical Excellence," Emergency Medicine Excellence award,
with five-star ratings in 23 specialty areas.

years. This is good news,

is to provide current,
independent data
on clinical outcomes
to help prospective
patients make informed
decisions about their
providers while also
identifying hospitals
that are setting national
benchmarks to which
other hospitals can
aspire."
The study states
that if all the nation's
hospitals had patient
outcomes among
women at the level of
those receiving the

39,450 women could
have potentially sur-

Boaters: Prepare to protect manatees


By JANICE NEARING
SPECIAL TO
THE GONDOLIER SUN

If your outdoor fun
activities include boating
and other water recre-
ation, be sure you have
all you need to partici-
pate in manatee safety
over the summer months
and beyond.



MUSIC
FROM PAGE 1
Students of Donna
Smith worked on sight-
reading a piece they had
never played before. She
is the principal second
violin player in the Venice
Symphony.
"So if I mess up, they
all go with me," she said
by way of describing her
position in the orchestra.
Making sure she
does not "mess up"
is Bowermeister, the
symphony's conductor,
past conductor of the
Sarasota Pops Orchestra
and Florida West Coast
Youth Symphony. He
retired as a music teacher
from Pine View School.
He has appeared as
the guest conductor of
the Florida West Coast
Symphony, the Florida
Chamber Orchestra and
the International Festival
Orchestra of Oxford,
England, among others.
At the summer music
camp he teaches violin
and viola. The day I
visited the camp, he was
instructing Eric Murrell,
12, a student at Laurel
Nokomis School. Murrell
said he has played the
viola about a year and
also is interested in guitar.
Beth Morrison, who
plays flute and piccolo
in the symphony, led a
group of campers ages
8-11 in some musical
games with the as-
sistance of two student
helpers.
In additional to music
lessons, choral practice,
games and jazz jam ses-
sions, students also learn
about various orchestral
instruments from the
people who play them.
To demonstrate instru-
ments such as trumpets
and saxophones, several
symphony performers set
up a display of present-
day musical instruments
and augmented that with
animal horns and even a
large conch shell, which
served as an early type of
horn.
Camp students take
four 45-minute classes
daily and enjoy snacks
near the end of each
day. The cost for the
two-week program
was $110 this sum-
mer. Students who
do not own their own


Save the Manatee
Club offers a variety of
free public awareness
materials to Florida's
boating community to
help protect these gentle,
endangered marine
mammals.
Waterproof banners
are free to Florida boat-
ers. These bright, bold,
yellow banners help

instruments can often
borrow them from their
school, or they rent
them from Troll Music in
Venice or Vogt's Music in
Sarasota, Heskett said.
Campers are allowed
and even encouraged to
do more than one thing,
such as singing and
playing an instrument.
"We cater to the
multi-aspect musician,"
Heskett said.
The final day of camp,
the students give a
concert at the Venice
Church of the Nazarene,
which has been the home
of the Venice Symphony
for several years.
"We want to add a
senior camp for adults,"
symphony manager
Doug Kerr said. "That
is one of the goals Ken
(Bowermeister) and I
set. We also could have
a youth orchestra in the
new hall."
When the new per-
forming arts center is
completed at Venice High
School, it will become the
new home of the Venice
Symphony, Exsultate! and
the Venice Concert Band,
Kerr said.
For information about
the camp or to be put on
the mailing list for next
summer, call Heskett at
941-716-3313 or Jennifer
Bruce at 941-412-4725.

boaters alert other boat-
ers when manatees are
present in the area with
the easy-to-see directive,

with students at the Venice Symphony Summer Music Camp at the Church of the Nazarene. The group is instructed by
Recital at the Church of the Nazarene. Johanna Fincher.


Charles Allen directs students performing several musical
numbers on the Orff instruments.


For the first time in camp history, 17 members of the Venice

long standing ovation.

Enjoying music camp


razzmatazz


One of the Venice
musical extravaganzas
of the summer brought
applause and standing
ovations from a huge
audience at the Church
of the Nazarene. The 21st
annual Venice Symphony
Summer Music Camp
Recital excited the crowd.
For two weeks more
than 100 students using
classrooms provided by
Kim Elder, director of
Island Village Montessori
School, spent four peri-
ods a day learning and
improving their skills.


At the end-of-camp
recital, Marina Pope's
orchestra, joined by
Johanna Fincher's
chorus, performed
"America the Beautiful"
and received a standing
ovation.
"They sound like an-
gels," said Fincher as she
introduced her advanced
chorus students, who
performed several pieces,
including "You Raise Me
Up." When they finished,
a tearful director faced
the audience and said, "I
told you they sound like
angels."
No group had more
enthusiasm than the
camp Jazz Band under
the direction of Jamie
Marshall. New to the
group's instruments was
a cowbell. Several musi-
cians wore cool hats just
to jazz things up a bit.
Students gave up wear-
ing their camp shirts for
the recital this year and


wore traditional black
and white. Teachers
wanted the students
to feel and look more
professional.
Bravo for a sensational
recital.

'Bear' with us
On Aug. 11, the Venice
Farmers Market on West
Tampa Avenue is focus-
ing on fun.
Venice firefighters will
be on hand with plastic
hats for children, and
from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
boys and girls can go on
a bear scavenger hunt.
Pick up directions at
Children's Books and
More in the Venice
Centre Mall. Everyone
who completes the great
bear hunt receives a bear.

One of our best
The special person of
this week is the director


the Venice Symphony
Summer Music Camp,
Gayle Heskett.
In real life this nice
lady teaches music at
North Port's Glenallen
Elementary School and
is a bassoonist with the
Venice Symphony.
She has a joyful spirit
and a passion for music
and life and passes those
feelings on to the other
teachers at the Venice
Symphony summer
music camp and to the
students. That is the rea-
son the program keeps
growing after 20 years.
Watching her as she
sits back and enjoys the
performances at the
summer music camp
recital, it's easy to see her
pure satisfaction comes
from seeing the camp
musicians perform.
Gayle Heskett is one of
the musicians who make
Venice a great place to
live.

Sea Venice


critters on


the loose

t presstime, most of the Venice Art Center's SeaVenice dol-
phins and sea turtles were at home with their foster families,
being primed and painted in all manner of finery for their
debut performance in October when they will be placed at select
locations all over Venice.
Akin to the 2005 Pigs in Paradise fundraiser, this one features 20
dolphins and 20 turtles, which likely will capture the hearts of Venice
residents and visitors as much as did the porkers. Those chubby
pigs were more photographed than even the downtown Gazebo or
the beach. Once again, the Venice Gondolier Sun is sponsoring a
gondolier what else?
Next door at the Venice Community Center, 326 S. Nokomis Ave.,
the Venice Area Orchid Society is holding a growers' clinic at 7 p.m.
today. It is open to all.
Thursday, in Sarasota, The Players will open the bonus show in
its Summer Sizzler series "Stay," by Sheila Cowley. Single tickets
are $15. Call 941-365-2494.
Also opening tomorrow in Sarasota is the third and final Banyan
Theater summer production, "Crimes of the Heart" by Beth Henley.
In the playbill, Banyan founder Jerry Finn said the play has been
referred to as "a black comedy, a tragicomedy, melodrama" and "a
chick-flick play." Directed by Barbara Redmond and with a set by
Jeffrey Dean, it should be a good show. Call 941-351-2808.
Also this month in Sarasota at Florida Studio Theatre -
reopening of the Gompertz. Call 941-366-9000.

GO ROAD TRIP


MOSI is zippier



these days

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry
gives new meaning to 'hands on' with its
newest attraction the Sky Trail Zip Line.
Newly opened at the end of July, the ride is
high enough above the ground to give first-time
zip liners pause, despite the harness and helmet
riders must wear. When I rode a zip line in Mexico
it was a one-way ride. At MOSI, riders begin
atop a tower that is about 50 feet above ground
and soar over MOSI's Kids in Charge! building
to another tower that is more than 350 feet away.
There, the riders turn around and zip back to
where they started, traveling more than 700 feet
in the process.
Rider weight, gravity and wind resistance
determine the speed of the ride, which is rarely
very slow and always exhilarating.
Unlike the experience I had in Mexico where
a person helped stop us at the end of the ride,
there is a built-in braking system at MOSI.
"Our mission here at MOSI is to make science
real for people of all ages, and nothing makes
science, especially gravity, more real than a zip
line," said Wit Ostrenko, president of MOSI, in a
press release issued after the opening.
The zip line can carry 60 passengers per hour.
MOSI's ropes course is a companion ad-
venture experience located just below the zip
line. Unlike many similar courses, MOSI's ropes
course is open to just one person as well as
to large groups. Ropes course participants are
tethered to a safety line with a mountain climber's
clip.
Tickets are $7 per person for non-members in

Monday through Thursday; from noon to 8 p.m.
Friday and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and

Miami, with a side of Cuba


BY WENDELL BROCK
THE ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION
On a breezeless downtown day, the Miami
Art Museum seemed like an obligatory
stop. Until I got there, and realized that a
big chunk of the space was closed for installation.
After a quick spin through an exhibit on the influ-
ence of the vinyl record album on contemporary
art, there was nothing for me to do but get down
to business. And eat.
Fleeing the museum, I ducked into Cacique
Lunch Restaurant, virtually across the street from
the gallery, and for a grand total of $4.05 washed
down an empanada and a flaky guava-and-
cream-cheese pastry with an enormous cup of
caf6 con leche.
Turned out, it was an excellent way to slurp-
start a lazy morning and plot my strategy to
conquer all the moros y cristianos (black beans
and white rice), all the muy rico seafood and
pork dishes that saturate this island cuisine like
caramel on flan.
While you can get a perfectly memorable clas-
sic Cuban meal at such mainstays as Versailles,
Islas Canarias and La Carreta, I am lucky enough
to know Miami insiders. And they know people.
So after telling me about the list of usual
suspects, my friend Bill checked in with a Cuban
colleague and called excitedly to tell me about
a couple of joints that are little known to tourists
and beloved by locals. Here's the list:
La Camaronera. Driving down Flagler Av-
enue, I was delighted to see a makeshift sign tell-


ing me that La Camaronera Restaurant and Fish
Market was approaching. Since it's tucked into
the corner of a nondescript strip mall, I needed
the cue. I also needed a seat. But once inside, I
discovered why my friend calls this "the stand-up
fish place&"There's not a chair, table or booth on
the premises, just a case of iced seafood and a
walk-up counter. I started with bollitos de carita,
hush puppy-like fritters made of black-eyed peas
and imbued with the faint scent of the sea. These
African-influenced balls of fried goodness are
Cuba's answer to the Brazilian acaraje. Heavenly.
While you can get shrimp cocktails and ceviche
here, the fried shrimp are the thing, and they are
definitive. 1952 W. Flagler St., Miami. 305-642-3322;
lacamaronera.com.
Havana Harry's. If you are shopping in Coral
Gables and get a hankering for some "pork
chunks" or vaca frita ( literally, "fried cow"), this
would be your place. A comfortable, commodi-
ous and affordable white-tablecloth dining room,
Havana Harry's bills itself as a "fusion" restaurant,
meaning, it seems, that you can get everything
from hamburgers to chicken Parm. I ask that you
don't, however. Instead, go for signature dishes
like the wonderful, almost gooey ham croquetas
or masitas de puerco (those infamous pork
chunks), which are cooked for hours, fried to a
crisp and slathered with garlic, onions and mojo
sauce. A little easier to chew is the lechonita
(chopped roast pig smothered with onions, garlic
and mojo) or its bovine cousin, vaca frita, a plate
of crisped shredded beef cooked with onions.

Take a beach vacation close to home


BY LARRY EVANS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Some residents take summer vacations in
a quaint little cluster of motels with rooms
and efficiencies a seashell-throw from the
Gulf of Mexico. Their drive there is measured in
minutes, not hours. They stay on Casey Key
'We get a lot of locals, a lot of Floridians" during
the summer months, said Tekla Dragan, who owns
and operates The Beachcomber on Casey Key.
'We have two families from Venice that come here."
A half-dozen miles can be a world away.
"Sometimes you just want to get away from
your own space," she said.
The Beachcomber and about a dozen other
motels straddle Casey Key Road just north of
Nokomis Beach. On the west side of the road is
the Gulf of Mexico. On the east is the Intracoastal
Waterway.
The buildings are one and two stories tall.There
are no bright lights, no night life.
'We get a lot of local people this time of year,"
said Jay Pukajlo, who works at A Beach Retreat.
"The local people, and people from other places
in Florida, come when school is out. People want
to get close to the water. Sometimes families will
come and rent out the whole place"'
Beach weddings are held at some places.
Casey Key is a seven-mile-long strip of land
between Venice and Sarasota.The motel district is a
small pocket on a key otherwise occupied by homes.
One reason locals like to vacation there is that
temperatures are almost always a little cooler by
the water.
Rates are appealing, too.
From late May to late August, rooms can cost


Sunset on Casey Key.


less than $100 a night. A week in a two-bedroom
efficiency costs in the range of $1,000. The range
of accommodations varies, so rates do, as well.
In any case, local vacationers would be hard
pressed to find better deals at resorts farther from
home.
'We have one of the last mom-and-pop places
around," said Rachel Neider, owner of the four-
apartment Harbor Lights.'We like to say we're home
away from home for the people who stay with us:"
Some places have boat docks available. There is
a public boat ramp on the Intracoastal Waterway.
"(Some locals) like to come and fish," said
Cameron Young, manager of Suntan Terrace.
Among them are locals who stay there and fish
from the beach at sunrise.
'We get a lot of locals in the summer, as well as
inland people from Orlando, Lakeland,"Young said.
Northerners make up most of the customer
base from fall through spring, but in the summer,
vacationers on southern Casey Key are almost all
Floridians.
If they live in Florida, it's hot wherever they live.
"There is always a breeze here," Dragan said.

Fun in the sun at the Venice beaches


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
While there is certainly no shortage of
beaches to enjoy in Sarasota County,
two of the nicest beaches are right on
Venice Island.
The Venice Municipal Beach is at the end of
Venice Avenue on The Esplanade and is the one
frequented by most beachgoers there. At the
main entrance, the beach pavilion is a beautiful
example of the "Sarasota School of Architecture"
style. Designed in the early '60s by architect Cyril
T Tucker, it has a hyperbolic paraboloid roof that
looks like it's levitating over two coral towers.
Underneath the shelter are a concession stand
and picnic tables, which on any given day are
used not only for eating, but for chess games and
just socializing. The restroom facilities are also in
that building.
The beach itself is nice and wide, thanks to
a 2005 renourishment by the Army Corps of
Engineers, which added 130 to 160 feet of sand
seaward. According to a City of Venice informa-
tion sheet, the project covered about 3.3 miles
of shoreline and dredged up approximately 1
million cubic yards of sand onto the beach from
six to 12 nautical miles offshore. The beach from
just south of the Fishing Pier (at Sharky's) to the
South Jetty, north of Venice Beach, was included
in the project.
There are lifeguard stations at Venice Beach,
which makes it a safe place to take families. And
if you like, you can rent chairs and umbrellas and
have them delivered there for you. Sunnytime
Rentals, based on Venice Island, also rents and
sets up cabanas, coolers, towels, lounge chairs-
whatever you need to make your beach experi-
ence complete.
At the other end of the spectrum, and the other
end of the island, is Caspersen Beach. Caspers-
en is the longest beach in the county, featuring
over 9,000 feet of beachfront.
Though the facilities at this beach have
recently undergone massive renovation, the


beach itself is much as it must have looked a few
hundred years ago. The sand is dark-colored,
in some places black, presumably because it
consists of ground fossilized sharks' teeth, turtle
shells and seashells.
It's a great beach to find sharks' teeth and
shells, and because the beach is not as wide as
other beaches and there are no lifeguards there,
it's usually not very crowded. One of the other
ways it is unique is that Venice Island is very
narrow on the southern end, and the back side of
Caspersen beach is on the bay.
Across a little bridge is a playground, a kayak
launch and a fishing pier. The nature trail, also
on the bay side, travels through freshwater and
saltwater marshes, mangrove areas, and tidal
flats, offering excellent opportunities for wildlife
viewing.
George Tatge, manager of Sarasota County
Parks and Recreation, said that though there
have been improvements to all of the south
county beaches, the ones at Caspersen Beach
have been the most extensive.
"There is a new beachfront restroom facil-
ity and trail head improvement for the Venetian
Waterway Trail, with new restroom and parking
improvements," he said. "There have also been
replacements and improvements to the ADA ac-
cessible beach boardwalks and beach observa-
tion platforms."
Also, the water and sewer lines were extended
from the city of Venice to serve the park rest-
rooms, allowing the elimination of the septic tank
and drain field that used to be there.
Both Venice Municipal Beach and Caspersen
Beach have earned "Blue Wave Certification."
The Blue Wave program is the first national
environmental certification for beaches, and
was designed by the Clean Beaches Coalition
to help maintain robust, health and vibrant
beaches.
Whichever Venice Island beach you go to, you
are guaranteed free parking and access to two of
the most beautiful shorelines in Florida.

Catch Mazz on




his way to Vegas


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice resident Jimmy Mazz will cruise
through Port Charlotte en route from New
England to Las Vegas.
Performing hits of the '50s and adding a few
anecdotes, Mazz is in Florida after a grueling
concert series in New England where he per-
formed 34 concerts in 21 days, his publicist Ann
Murray said by phone recently.
Adding to his challenge was the record heat


wave in that area at the time. Despite that, the
houses were packed with fans wanting to hear his
renditions of songs first made famous by the
likes of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra,
Dean Martin, Perry Como and others of that
decade when crooners had to make room for
the age of rock 'n' roll. Mazz also pays homage
to such early rock stars as Jerry Lee Lewis,
Chuck Berry, Chubby Checkers, Fats Domino
and Elvis Presley Throw in some songs from
Paul Anka, Conway Twitty, Dion, Sam Cooke and


Tony Bennett for a concert that
entertains even as it brings forth waves of
nostalgia.
After this concert and some R&R in Venice,
Mazz heads to Las Vegas to perform more shows.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. Saturday at the
Cultural Center of Charlotte County, 2280 Aaron
St., Port Charlotte.
Tickets are $13 per person. For reservations,
call 941-625-4175. For more information about

VCC


to host second Arts and Crafts show


STAFF REPORT
More than 1,000 people attended the
June 16 Arts and Crafts show at the
Venice Community Center. The event
was so popular that shoppers and vendors told
VCC staff members they wanted a second show
as soon as possible.


Willing to comply, VCC will hold another arts
and crafts show at its facility, 326 Nokomis Ave.,
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11.
'We had such a great response from the public
and vendors that we knew we had to start planning
a second event," said Dorian Mattox, Sarasota
County parks and recreation program coordinator.
"The next show will be even bigger with more


vendors, a bigger selection and, of course, great
buys on unique handcrafted items."
The show will feature more than 50 vendors
offering a variety of handcrafted jewelry, quilts,
paintings, handbags and more.
The Venice Community Center Partners will
be on hand to offer hotdogs and sausages so
shoppers can grab a quick bite and continue their


hunt for that perfect purchase. All proceeds from
food sales will go to supporting the Partners, a
nonprofit volunteer organization that helps sup-
port programs and activities at VCC.
Admission and parking are free.
For more information, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 941-861-5000 or go to

Venice Theatre is looking for a couple of clowns


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre is looking for a couple of
clowns.
As Venice was home to Clown College
from 1968 to about 1996, this should be easy.
What complicates the challenge is that these two
clowns need to be capable of portraying dozens of
parts in a fast-paced homage to the late


Alfred Hitchcock.
Venice Theatre's executive director Murray
Chase will direct "The 39 Steps" spoof which
lampoons the Hitchcock film of that name with
all but one actor portraying more than one role
and with the use of a lot of physical comedy plus
multiple accents.
Think Monty Python meets the great mystery
writers.


Needed for the play are a male actor in his late
30s or early 40s to play the lead, debonair Eng-
lishman Richard Hannay; a female in her late 20s
to mid-30s to portray three roles with various ac-
cents and strong physical ability; and two clowns
who must be "adept at comedy and accents" and
in "excellent physical condition' "according to the
call for actors release.
The clowns will each play "dozens" of roles.


"Those interested should be prepared to
do cold readings. Monologues will be heard if
prepared.
"Perusal copies of the script are available by
mailing rhondasudik@venicestage.com."
Auditions will be held at the theater, 140 Tampa
Ave., Venice, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday and Monday.
Performances will be Oct. 2-31.
For more information, call 941-488-1115.


Learn the art of barbecue competition


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
ou may think you make the best barbecue
in the universe but that does not mean
barbecue judges will agree.
The Swamp Boys Championship BBQ Team
will show you how to become a winner. Team
members will hold a school Oct. 6-7 at the Ram-
bler's Rest RV Resort in Venice. Classes will be in
the pavilion next to the Myakka River.
Winning barbecue cookoffs is not for the faint


of heart. Consistent winners have honed their
skills, from meat purchase to presentation.
The two-day series of classes will cover meat
selection and trimming, injections, marinades and
sauces for "wet" barbecue, rubs for "dry" barbecue,
cooking temperatures, meat temperatures and "blind
box" prep, according to Kansas City BBQ Society
and Florida BBQ Association guidelines.
Several major manufacturers of rubs and
sauces and other barbecue products will supply
products for use in the classes.


Rob Bagby will be the lead teacher.
The school also will teach participants what
judges are looking for. Local celebrity judges as-
sisted by FBA Master judge and instructor Marty
Hyde will evaluate student work on Sunday.
The entry fee is $500 for one person and $200
additional for a spouse. Each one must complete
a separate entry blank. To receive one, call
941-493-4354. RV reservations can be made by
calling the resort.
The school is another part of Donald Fisher's


plan to make the Venice area the center of the
barbecue championship world as well as the
center of the bluegrass world.
His plan began last year with a barbecue
cookoff sponsored by the Venice Gondolier which
also is a school sponsor. Proceeds will benefit the
Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children
Inc. This is part of the countdown to the 2013
Suncoast BBQ Bash, April 19-20 in Venice.

GO IN THE KITCHEN


Cedar Reef Fish Camp


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Though Dean Donnelly has worked with
some big names in the restaurant industry
Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, Johnny
Leverock's Seafood House and Anna Maria
Oyster Bar he didn't hesitate when he had the
opportunity to buy a small restaurant of his own.
"I saw a need for a good seafood restaurant
here (in Venice)," he said. "My problem with most
restaurants is that they cater to tourists. I cater to
the locals, and if you're going to do that, you had
better have great food and great service."
Those are two things Donnelly feels he has
covered. His restaurant Cedar Reef Fish Camp
just celebrated its first anniversary and things are
going very well.
'We have incredibly loyal people (in the com-
munity) and they have embraced us'," he said. "I
just love it."
And Donnelly's customers love his fresh sea-
food and punched-up twist on traditional favorites.
He says he learned to cook in self-defense as
a child, because his parents weren't very adept in
the kitchen. The end result is that what he serves
in his restaurant are his own unique recipes,
created from years of experience.
"I'm a student of restaurants," he said. "I'm
obsessed with learning and getting better."
One of the most popular items on the menu
is one that Donnelly has made his own with a
special marinade he created.
'We have a hand-cut cedar plank salmon," he
said. "We marinate it for two days in a bourbon-
soy marinade with pineapple and sesame."
Donnelly said that one of the other entrees the
customers seem to really enjoy is the blackened
shrimp and grits. He said that the way he makes
the grits, they come out especially creamy, and

Beach.
when topped with the fresh blackened Gulf
shrimp, it's delicious.
Looking here for a traditional key lime pie for
dessert? You won't find it but you may discover
you like what has replaced it on the Cedar Reef
Fish Camp menu even better.
'We do a key lime crbme brulee," Donnelly said."I
also refuse to make New England clam chowder -
I make blackened alligator chowder instead"'
Donnelly's argument is that you can get those
menu items anywhere, and he wants his restau-
rant to be special. So, what you get is a unique
dining experience without having to break the
bank to do it.
"I have 15 items on my menu that are $10 or
less all the time," Donnelly said. "Then we do
features every night of the week."
Monday night's feature is fish and chips for
$6.50. Tuesday is blackened shrimp and grits for
$10. Wednesday night, you can get the cedar

CelebraSPOTLIGHT

Celebrate 50 years with the Portside Tavern


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Everyone loves a good party and they're
throwing a big one this Saturday night, cel-
ebrating the 50th birthday of the Portside
Tavern.
The day starts early as the doors swing open at
7 a.m.with a light breakfast served until 11 a.m.,
along with bloody Marys and Budweiser drafts for
a dollar.
"We're the only bar that's open in Port
Charlotte at 7 a.m.," said owner Joe Grieger,
who, along with his wife, Tammy, took over the
bar almost nine years ago from his father, Heinz
and his mother, Mary "My father had it 15 years
before that."
The celebration heats up at 2 p.m. Saturday
as the musical duo Gary and Kerri play until 6
p.m. The duo have over 1,400 performances
under their belt in the last five years, doing
covers and original music in the country and
rock arenas.
Kerri, a former backup singer for Rod Stewart


and Gary Morris, who played with Willie Nelson
at Farm Aid, have put together a handful of CDs
over their brief span together, including their
latest, "Nice To Meet You."
At night DJ "Don" Guido begins the crowd
participation part of the party with a karaoke sock
hop, featuring music from the '60s, with prizes
for best costume, best dance and other contests
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
The Portside Tavern has a number of beers on
tap with a "red solo cup" special every Wednes-
day and Saturday night.
Buy the cup for a couple of dollars filled
with whatever your favorite beer on tap might
be and refills cost 75 cents for the rest of
the night.
The Tavern includes Woodchuck Hard Cider as
one of choices on tap.
The Portside features an extensive menu
of "pub grub," including wings, pizza and nachos,
but it may be most famous for over 15 varieties
of hot dogs, including their city dogs, featuring
Chicago, New York and Detroit dogs, as well as


others.
"I started looking on the internet as we were
building the kitchen," Grieger explained.
"The New England dog and the California dog
I got from watching a TV show on the
'Documentary Channel.'"
Thursday nights, The Trivia Factory, a
Southeastern organization specializing in trivia
contests, features a live trivia competition for all
who wish to compete with prizes awarded to the
winners.
"Twice a year they have a regional contest,"
Grieger explained. "All the best players from the
area go to one bar and play."
Friday, the band Third Wheel Tuesday, with
Nashville roots, will take the stage playing a folk
and acoustic blend of songs as a warmup to the
next day's big event.
The Portside Tavern is open seven days a
week from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. and is located at
3636 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte.
For more information, call 941-629-3055 or

Luigi's Pizzeria and


Italian Restaurant


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Owners Ed and Ellen Piedmont claim that
Luigi's Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant
is 'where the locals eat,' but also where
seasonal residents and tourists enjoy a wide
variety of Italian cuisine. Besides pasta and
Italian specialties, many unusual and delicious
beef, poultry and seafood dishes are featured.
Calzones, stromboli, and hot and cold subs are
also offered. And don't forget to try one of the
homemade desserts.
When the Piedmonts moved to Southwest
Florida in 1981, they opened Luigi's shortly
thereafter in Englewood. The restaurant was
relocated to Port Charlotte in 1985, and soon
earned a reputation for the best pizza and food
in town.
The owners are pleased to have three
capable managers including their son-in-law,
David Coffee, and Dwon Stellwag and Glenn
Aspen. The staff greets customers with smiles
and provides excellent service.
'We keep our prices reasonable, so that fami-
lies can eat out and get good food and prices,"
Coffee stated. "Also, we like to cater to retirees
who are our customer base."'
Monday is the busiest day each week; any size
pizza is offered at half-price for dine in or carry
out. Since this offer brought so many customers,
the managers decided to add another exceptional
day. Customers' kids eat free on Saturdays; they
may choose from four items or "make his or her
own pizza" with one topping. Each meal comes
with a beverage and ice cream.
All-you-can-eat lunch buffet for $8 is of-
fered Tuesday to Friday that includes salad
bar, bread, soup, three or four entries, six
different pizzas and dessert. Featured entrees
are chicken on Tuesday, pasta with meatballs,
sausage, meat or marina sauce on Wednesday,
barbecue ribs on Thursday, and fish (baby
shrimp or beer-battered tilapia) on Friday. A
similar dinner buffet is offered from 4 p.m. to
8 p.m. on Tuesday for $10, and on Sunday for $12
that has eight or nine entrees.
Every Tuesday, a Southern American buffet
offers meatloaf, 'as good as mom's,' macaroni and
cheese, and fried chicken. "Our chef prepares
the southern fried chicken with 13 seasonings in
the batter," Coffee explained. "Our chicken would
make the 'Colonel' jealous."


Chef Chuck Venable shows strawberry swirl and
key lime cheesecake, two of a variety of his
homemade desserts.

Also on Tuesday is a choice of one of seven
chicken entries for $9.99. The chicken marsala,
chicken parmigiana, and lemon garlic chicken are
very popular.
Half-off regular pasta dishes are offered on
Wednesday, hamburger and fries for $5.50 on
Thursday, and Friday features all-you-can-eat ribs
with fries for $10.
Daily specials such as grilled salmon with melon
salsa served over rice, captain's platter (flounder,
scallops and shrimp prepared fried or baked) served
over rice pilaf, and orange barbecue ribeye steak
with onions and green peppers served with herb
roasted potatoes are offered.
Early bird dinners are $3 off until 5 p.m. every
day. A jumbo shrimp cocktail is offered every
Sunday for $3.99. Happy hour is all day every
day with two-for-the-price-of-one beer and house
wine.
Multicolored hanging lamps provide a nice
ambiance above comfortable booths and tables.
There is a full bar, outdoor seating and a private
room for up to 50 people for parties.
Full service off-premise catering is available.
Delivery from the full menu is available for a $2
charge in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda.
Luigi's is conveniently located at 3883 Tamiami
Trail, Port Charlotte.
Business hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday
through Friday, and 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday
and Sunday.

Parks set Punta Gorda apart


BY GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


Regional Medical Center.


Thanks to the foresight of founder Isaac
Trabue, who reserved the waterfront for
parks in the city he named after himself,
Punta Gorda started off its life with an abundance
of parkland. In the years since, even more land
has been added to the inventory.
Although the city is already blessed with a park
system the envy of many a larger community,
it continues to grow because the city has found
ways to fund expansion even during the current
economic downturn. Punta Gorda is indeed the
city of parks.
Don't let a little warm weather this summer
keep you out of them. Go early in the morning
and take advantage of the larger, waterfront
parks, where you can catch a cool breeze off
the water. And don't forget the other little jewels
tucked away all over town. They are a great place
to have that morning cup of coffee or take a
break.

Laishley Park
Laishley Park is located just east of the
northbound U.S. 41 bridge.
The easiest way to get there is to drive north
on Nesbit Street until you hit the park. It's also
accessible by bicycle from Harborwalk.
Start a tour of Laishley Park by stopping for
some quiet contemplation at the Kiwanis Veterans
Garden at the entrance. First, admire the Punta
Gorda Historical Society mural titled "Lest We
Forget," in which Liberty, draped in an American
Flag, opens a Pandora's box from which leaps
vignettes of all the conflicts our nation has been
involved in.
Then walk up to the octagonal gazebo
overlooking a quiet pond and offering views of
the park, the Peace River and the Baron Collier
Bridge. The emotional heart of the garden is the
memorial plaques and bricks that surround the
front half of the gazebo. The bronze plaques,
mounted on brick pedestals, were contributed by
military organizations, local service groups and
families honoring a deceased relative.
The most moving is one containing the names
of the 30 Charlotte County service members
who died in conflicts ranging from World War I to
Beirut. First-time visitors also need to take time
to examine the commemorative pavers between
the plaques and the gazebos. These have been
purchased to honor a veteran and are installed
and maintained by the city of Punta Gorda.You
can purchase a brick for your veteran by contact-
ing Kim Lovejoy, executive director of the Military
Heritage Museum at 941-575-9002.
Admire the marina, boat ramp, harbormaster
building from the pavilions on the left. To your right,
you have a choice of an interactive fountain with a
playground and a covered stage used for festivals.
The fountain is the place to go if you have
small children. Youngsters, especially toddlers,
love to run through the jets of water, and parents
have a comfortable, shaded seating area that
let's them keep an eye on their children, admire
the view of the river and marina and enjoy the
cool breeze blowing off the water. After dark, the
colored lights come on, adding color to the water.
A playground is adjacent to the fountain.
At the eastern end of the park, right on the
river, is Wedding Point, a great place for quiet
reflection. Stand on the sea wall and see if you
can spot the big sea turtle often seen in the
water. Right next to Wedding Point is an equally
good place for contemplation the Spirit of
Punta Gorda sculpture, which was placed there
to commemorate the city's recovery from the
devastating effects of Hurricane Charley.
Feel like a walk? Keep heading east along
the water. You'll hit a boardwalk along the
mangroves with spectacular views and then a
paved multiuse trail, both part of Harborwalk
East, that will take you all the way to Charlotte


Gilchrist Park
Stretching out along the waterfront west of
the Punta Gorda Waterfront Hotel, 11-acre
Gilchrist Park offers an expansive view of the
water and bridges, a gazebo that is a popular
spot for weddings, covered pavilions that can
be rented, picnic tables and restrooms.
The bad news is that the planned construc-
tion of Harborwalk West through Gilchrist has
been postponed indefinitely because of bud-
getary issues, though progress is being made
on the section around the nearby hotel.
Dennis Murphy, City Growth Management
director, said of construction of the loop around
the hotel, which will link Harborwalk East and a
future West, "It should be about this time next
year. We have to finish the plans, get Corps
(U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) approval,
send out the bid and award it. The hotel is not
going to want construction to start during the
winter and will probably want to wait until next
summer."
The good news is that the park and its
amenities are still available because of the
delayed construction. The more vigorously
inclined can take advantage of a basketball
court, a well-equipped children's playground,
two tennis courts and a fishing pier. Gilchrist is
also a great place for an exercise walk along
the water, where the temperature feels a good
10 degrees cooler.
Take time to visit the monument to Ponce
de Leon, which features a fountain and bronze
statue of the Spanish explorer many believe
was the first European to visit Charlotte
Harbor. Next year, the Royal Order of Ponce de
Leon Conquistadors will celebrate the 500th
anniversary of de Leon's first visit with a mas-
sive celebration.
A special activity at Gilchrist is the Thursday
evening Guitar Army, when musicians, novice
and expert, come from all over to jam with gui-
tars, dulcimers, fiddles, accordions and other
instruments. Bring a chair, food and drink and
enjoy an entertaining and free evening of music.

Ponce de Leon Park
The city's other waterfront jewel is Ponce de
Leon Park at the end of West Marion Avenue.
Punta Gorda means "fat point" in Spanish, and
the park sits right on it.
It's only fitting that a park named Ponce should
honor the famous Spanish explorer. Statues lov-
ingly restored by Barbara Carney and informa-
tional markers abound to mark the park as the
symbolic site of his arrival in the area. There's
even a stone grotto with a conquistador statue
that is a popular spot for Easter sunrise services.
The park has a boat ramp, two fishing piers, a
playground, an informational boardwalk through
the mangroves and the longest strip of sandy
beach in the city. Right at the entrance to the park
is the Peace River Wildlife Center, which rehabili-
tates injured wildlife and has on display those that
can't be returned to the wild.
The views are awesome. There is no better
place to watch boats go by, and the sunsets can't
be beaten.Take a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread
and a wedge of cheese and join others watching
the sunset.

Take a walk or a pedal
Since Hurricane Charley, Punta Gorda has
added miles of bike and pedestrian trails as
part of an 18-mile Ring Around the City net-
work and is now an official Bicycle Friendly
City. While you can't get everywhere you
want to go on the current network, the ring
and associated sidewalks give you lots of
options to get in some aerobic exercise.
The Harborwalk East portion of the ring
is completely finished and a great place
to walk or bicycle. It runs from Charlotte

sit and chat with friends after a downtown dinner.


Regional Medical Center and connects to
the largely completed downtown section by
the Charlotte County Justice Center, where
you can link up with the sidewalk along the
Gilchrist Park waterfront extending to Fisher-
men's Village.
From there, turn south on phase I of the
Linear Park trail down to Olympia. Phase III,
which will link the Linear Park to the recently
completed Shreve Street trail, should start
construction this year, according to Murphy.
In the meantime, you can sidewalk over to
the Shreve trail, whose most scenic section
goes by the History Park. On leased city
land but managed by the Punta Gorda His-
torical Society, this park is the closest thing
the city has to a botanical garden.
It hosts the society's farm market from
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Sunday, when you can
not only walk through the park but get into the
historic buildings located there. Starr Zachritz's
gallery in the Trabue Land Sales Office house
is also available then for shopping.
Some 25 to 30 antique dealers will be call-
ing the market home on every second Sunday.
"I invite everyone to stop in anytime and
enjoy the birds, hibiscus and blooming
flowers," said history park manager Louis
Desguin. "And people can call me (941-380-
6814) to rent the buildings for weddings and
other events."
Another great place to walk is the Nature
Park at 1623 Aqui Esta Drive. The large, 21-
acre park is one of the few patches of natural
habitat inside the city limits. Cabbage palms,
native plants and wildflowers abound. There's a
palmetto forest and salt marsh for nature lovers.
It features a well-marked, mile-long trail with
illustrated signs pointing out wildlife and plants
you may see while there. The trail, some of it
boardwalk, takes walkers to a Punta Gorda
Isles' saltwater canal with a fishing pier/observa-
tion deck and wonderful view.
The Nature Park is looking especially spiffy
right now, largely because of the efforts of a
group of Punta Gorda Isles volunteers led by
Richard Polk who call themselves the Green
Thumbs. City chief planner Joan LeBeau credits


the group with planting shade trees, native
grasses, wildflower planting beds and a
butterfly garden.
She said, "The group's efforts have resulted
in a more attractive park for the neighborhood
at a great cost savings to the city. The Green
Thumbs are really making a difference in their
community."

Pocket parks
A number of smaller parks, too numerous to
mention here, are scattered around town, some
on Isaac Trabue's original plat, the rest added
over the years. Most have amenities limited to
benches but offer good views, landscaping and
peace and solitude. See www.ci.punta-gorda.
fl.us/depts/growthmgmt/rec&openspacemastplan.
html for a reasonably current map.
The two most beautiful are located downtown.
Many people think Hector House Plaza, at
the corner of Taylor Street and Olympia Avenue,
belongs to the adjoining Wotitzky law firm. Not
so; it sits on city property local history buffs
consider hallowed ground the site of the house
owned by Tom Hector, where the city of Punta
was named and incorporated in 1887. Take time
to read the marker to find out more interesting
historical tidbits.
It has a nice patch of grass in the middle,
benches and two chess tables for those so inclined,
plus a great view of the restored courthouse.
The best time to visit is during the Downtown
Merchants Association Farmers Market from
8 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday, when Taylor Street
and the market are full of vendors and shoppers.
Not more than 50 yards away, Herald Court
Centre Park, across the street from the parking
garage, is the most lushly landscaped piece
of city property, thanks to TEAM Punta Gorda.
It may also be the most anonymous, largely
because it abuts the now-closed Turtle Club and
looks as if it is on private property. The large foun-
tain offers ambience and the mature trees shade.
This little park is a great place to sit and chat
with friends after a downtown dinner. Pick up
a cupcake and cup of coffee from the nearby
In Your Face Cupcakes or an ice cream from
Cubby's and enjoy life in Punta Gorda.

'Sea'ing

Venice in a

new way
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sea turtles and dolphins have moved into several
Venice-area homes belonging to Venice Art
Center artists.
When they emerge in a few weeks, they will no
longer be the bland white sea creatures they were when
they arrived in Venice. Instead they will be sporting new
coats of color and be ready to take their place in 85th
anniversary of Venice history.
Look for them along the avenues downtown as well
as at such popular places as the city's Cultural Campus
- site of the Venice Public Library, Venice Community
Center, Triangle Inn and Venice Art Center.
Until then, the first painted dolphin stands in the
entrance hall of the art center as a gentle reminder of
this season's sequel to the center's Pigs in Paradise
project Sea Venice.
For information or to sponsor one of the last two
critters, call 941-485-7136.

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

Opening lead: Jack of

Study the diagram above. Would
you rather play or defend three no
trump after West leads the jack of
hearts?
The auction is straightforward.
After a two no trump opening bid by
South, North has no reason to
suppose that an 11-trick game in
diamonds would be as good as a
nine-trick one at notrump.
Suppose you elect to play. You win
the opening lead in hand and make
the normal play of a low diamond to
the jack as West discards a spade.
East wins with the ace and returns a


heart to your king. Since East still has
a diamond stopper, you abandon
diamonds and start on clubs. East
wins the first club with king and
removes your remaining heart
stopper. When West gains the lead
with the ace of clubs he cashes two
heart tricks and your contract joins all
the other lost causes.
However, that does not mean you
should elect to defend the hand! You
have not played it to best advantage.
After winning the first trick, correct
technique is to lead the queen of
diamonds from hand! If East grabs
the ace and reverts to hearts, your
next move is to lead another
diamond, ducking in dummy. East
can win and remove your last heart
stopper, but you can now run the
diamonds, scoring in all two spade
tricks, three hearts and four
diamonds.
Can't East foil your plan by
allowing the queen of diamonds to
win the second trick? Hardly. Now
you abandon diamonds and start on
clubs, and you get your suit going
before the defenders establish theirs.
In this variation you collect two
spades, three hearts, one diamond
and three clubs.

Uterine cancer most often REX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan
aSANDRA FOUND A OH, I AM...

appears after menopause L BE HAPPY A NICE


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My age is 61. I went
through menopause 10
years ago. In the previ-
ous three months, I have
started having some vagi-
nal spotting with blood. I
felt fine, no pain, nothing.
I mentioned this to my
husband, and he said he
was going to forcefully
take me to the doctor if I
didn't go on my own. I did
go, and am glad I did. The
doctor suspected uterine
cancer, and his suspicion
was confirmed by a biopsy.
I am scheduled for surgery.
So much attention is
paid to breast cancer. I
can't find much informa-
tion on uterine cancer. Will
you provide a rundown on
it? MA.
ANSWER: Uterine
cancer also goes by the
name endometrial cancer.
The endometrium is the
lining of the uterus and
the place where most
uterine cancers arise.
Around 46,000 new cases
are discovered yearly in
the United States, and it's
responsible for roughly
8,000 deaths a year.
Endometrial cancer is
a cancer mostly of post-
menopausal women. Just
as in your case, vaginal
bleeding is its chief sign.
The bleeding might be very
slight, spotting only, or it
can be heavy. Only 25 per-
cent of cases of this cancer
occur in younger women.
The signs of uterine cancer
in these younger women
are an increased frequency
of periods and irregular
periods.
Ultrasound pictures
of the uterus are helpful
in detecting this cancer.
Biopsy provides the
definitive answer. When
discovered early, before the
cancer has infiltrated the
uterine muscle or spread
to surrounding tissues, the
prognosis is excellent.
I anticipate that you'll
have uneventful surgery
and a cure.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
When I was 40,1 I stopped
smoking. I am 65 now.
I thought that by now,
25 years of no smoking,
my risk for a heart attack
or lung cancer would have
vanished.
According to a friend,
who thinks he is an MD,
that's not the case. He
says you never repair the
damage done by smok-
ing, and you always have
an increased chance of
developing cancer or a
heart attack. Is that the
case? -WW
ANSWER: That's not the
case.
The benefits from not
smoking begin the day
cao


Dr. Donohue
Readers may

Donohue at

Orlando,

after a person stops.
Cigarette smoke contains
carbon monoxide, a gas
that displaces oxygen from
red blood cells. Smokers,
therefore, are in a constant
state of reduced oxygen
supply. That lack ends
the day after stopping
cigarettes.
Most studies estimate
that 15 years of not
smoking provide former
smokers with the same risk
of having a heart attack as
those who never smoked.
The cancer threat might
never disappear entirely.
However, after 15 years
of abstinence, the risk of
lung cancer drops from a
high of 20 times that of a
nonsmoker to around four
times that of a nonsmoker.
Some feel that the risk
eventually will disappear
completely.
Estimates vary from
results of different studies.
Everyone agrees, however,
that the dangers of smok-
ing eventually go up in
smoke if a person stops.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am writing to see if the
medicine you get in the
U.S. is the same as in
Canada. My husband and I
take Nexium. Our insur-
ance company won't cover
its costs, even though our
doctor explained that we
have tried other drugs in
the Nexium family, but
they don't work for us. Do
Canada's Nexium and the
United States' Nexium
have the same ingredients?
- R.
ANSWER: The same
manufacturer supplies
both Nexiums. In Canada,
Nexium is marketed as a
tablet; in the U.S., as a pill.
The active ingredient is the
same. Nexium is a member
of the group of medicines
called proton pump inhibi-
tors. These medicines stop
the production of stomach
acid.
The booklet on GERD,
also called heartburn,
explains this common
disorder. Readers can
obtain a copy by writing:
Dr. Donohue No. 501,
Box 536475, Orlando, FL
32853-6475. Enclose a

cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6

LUCK OF THE DRAW

How to cut the corn


Dear Heloise: I read the
column about cutting hard-
boiled eggs, fruits for salads
and things for side dishes.
After reading, I wondered
if there is a certain knife or
something for cutting fresh
corn off the cob. Laura H.
in Louisiana
There are products avail-
able, such as corn peelers or
zippers. As the name states,
the peeler is run along the
sides of the cob. The zipper
is a tool shaped like a circle
on the end, and it goes
completely over the cob,
getting all the kernels off in
one pressing-down motion.
Here's a hint to try if you
cannot find or do not want
a special tool: Carefully
hold the cob on the inside
ring of a Bundt cake pan
and, using a knife, you can
cut the kernels off, allowing
them to be caught in the
pan. Heloise

Frozen cilantro
Dear Heloise: Is there any
way to freeze fresh cilantro?
I cannot use it before it
spoils, and I would love to
have it handy in the freezer.
- Gina, via email
Gina, I have the same
problem. You CAN freeze
cilantro, either whole or
chopped up! Just be sure
you store it in an airtight
container. It is not recom-
mended that you thaw
cilantro before using, so try
freezing it in ice-cube trays
with a little water or a favor-
ite stock. When needed, add
the entire ice cube to your
cooking.
When buying cilantro,
look for leaves that are dark


Hints from Heloise

green in color, firm and
crisp. Wash before using
(or freezing) in a bowl of
cold water. Gently move it
around with your hand to
get the dirt particles out of
it. Be gentle, because the
leaves are fragile. Heloise

Separate pasta
Dear Heloise: I was mak-
ing goulash for a group of
people. As usual, I over-
made the hamburger and
sauce mixture. I boiled the
elbow-shaped noodles in a
separate pan. This enabled
everyone to have as much
sauce and noodles as he
wanted. I was feeding a
group of guys, and they re-
ally liked this arrangement.
- Debbie K., via email

Better meatloaf
Dear Heloise: Here is a
hint to help cut down on
the grease when you make
meatloaf: Just line the pan
with stale bread or rolls. The
bread soaks up the grease,
and the meatloaf pulls off
the bread easily after it is
baked. This even makes
cleanup easier! I have been
doing this for a while, and it
works every time! K.K. in
Pennsylvania

Man who's not in the mood

may soon be out of a partner


MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley
m


DEAR ABBY: I am a
24-year-old man with a
good job, a good rela-
tionship, a level head
on my shoulders and
a great family. Life has
had its ups and downs,
but I have always been
optimistic and apprecia-
tive of my blessings.
My issue is with me.
After 10 months or so of
dating a woman, I always
lose my physical attrac-
tion to her. It has been my
downfall in both of my
previous relationships.
My current relationship
is with a woman I should
marry. She's gorgeous, in-
telligent, and we have an
incredible level of com-
munication. I could not
imagine a better partner.
But my lack of desire to
have a constant physical
relationship is driving her
away.
I occasionally initiate,
but I'm usually not in
the mood. I'd be happy
with every week or every
other week, but I'm
only 24. Is this crazy?
I know I'm making her
feel unwanted, and it
has become a sensitive
subject for me.
Is this a sign that I'm
not supposed to be in
this relationship? Other
women excite me, but I
have no desire to be with
someone else. What are
your thoughts on this?
- CONFUSED IN THE
SOUTH
DEAR CONFUSED:
Talk about this with your
doctor and have your
hormone levels checked.
If they are where they
should be, it may be that
you simply have a low
sex drive. Either that, or
you crave what no one
woman can give any
man, and that's variety.
DEAR ABBY: Last year
I lost someone very dear
to me, my 5-year-old
brother. I never knew a
child who died before,
but when it's your little
brother it makes it worse.
The thing is, I'm the
oldest and I have always
tried to hide my emo-
tions. I try to act like
everything is OK because
I don't want people to
know I'm falling apart.
It's bad enough for my


Dear Abby

mom and my grand-
parents. I don't want to
make it worse.
People say God only
gives you what you can
handle, but how are
you supposed to handle
an innocent child's
death? GRIEVING IN
VIRGINIA
DEAR GRIEVING:
Please accept my sym-
pathy for your loss. A
healthy way to deal with
the emotions you are ex-
periencing is to talk about
them. Ideally, it would
be with your parents.
However, because you're
afraid it will be too pain-
ful for them, you need to
find another adult with
whom you can vent.
It is important to
let the feelings you're
bottling up come out
because they are normal.
Releasing them will
help ease your pain. A
counselor at school can
help, or if you'd be more
comfortable with some-
one else, talk to your
clergyperson.
DEAR ABBY: You fre-
quently recommend that
readers seek therapy. I've
been in therapy for eight
years and see very little
progress. Do you have
any statistics that prove
how helpful therapy ac-
tually is? SKEPTICAL
IN SAN FRANCISCO
DEAR SKEPTICAL: I
don't have any statistics
- but I do have some
advice for you: change
therapists! After eight
years and little progress,
you're with the wrong
person.

it with the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed at
Calvary.
