An anti-Obama billboard at Center Road and U.S. 41 Business
was severely damaged the day after it was put up.

They say what goes
up must come down,
but Sarasota County
Republicans did not
expect a large campaign
billboard, which they
put up on Friday, to
come down so soon.
"Really, we need to get
this campaign out of the
gutter," said Sarasota
County GOP Chair Joe
Gruters. "This is unac-
ceptable and truly is a
disgusting display."
The billboard, at
south U.S. 41 and
Center Road in Venice,
originally read "Repeal
Obama." However,
sometime Saturday
night someone cut out
the section that read
"Repeal."
"It doesn't matter if
you like the message
on the sign or not, at
the end of the day its
our right as Americans
to have the freedom of
speech and for people
to violate that in any


way is wrong," said
Gruters.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office is
investigating the crime,
which it says is felony
criminal mischief.
In this heated political
landscape, some may be
quick to think that local
Democrats are respon-
sible, a charge Sarasota
County Democratic
Chair Rita Ferrandino
denies.
"Well, the Democratic
Party certainly doesn't
have anything to gain,"
said Ferrandino, "which
is why I'm confident we
have nothing to do with
it and none of our sup-
porters have anything to
do with it."
State Rep. Doug
Holder, though, said he
believes the sign was torn
down by Obama cam-
paigners who recently
arrived from Chicago.
"We don't normally see
this type of sophisticated
vandalism and I don't
BILLBOARD 17


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Fearing a precedent-
setting decision,
the Venice Planning
Commission on Tuesday
denied a variance
petition that would have
allowed a 5 foot, 4 inch
solid wall along a home
on Harbor Drive.
Current code allows a
3-foot wall.
Homeowner Franklin
Hill was seeking a
higher privacy wall for
his home at 409 South
Harbor Drive, citing the
slope of the property,
which made the allow-
able 3 feet seem more


like 2 feet. He sought a
2-foot, 4-inch extension.
The Architectural
Review Board
previously OK'd the
aesthetic design, but
that didn't sway the
commission. It voted
4-2 (Commissioner Sid
Shrauger was absent)
against a compromise
plan offered by archi-
tect Mark Beebe that
would have cut the
corners back along the
proposed 66-foot-long
fence to better observe
oncoming traffic.

Contract OK'd for River Road


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY
- In about a month, the
intersection of U.S. 41
and River Road near
North Port will start
undergoing a massive
face-lift.
On Tuesday, Sarasota
County commissioners
agreed to an $8.7 million
contract with Woodruff
and Sons Inc. of Bradenton
to expand and smooth out
the intersection, which
features a sharp incline
with a drop-off on the
South River Road side.


"This has been a
long time coming,"
said Commissioner Jon
Thaxton, who seconded
Commissioner Carolyn
Mason's motion to
approve the contract.
"This is one of those
projects where I think,
despite the need for other
improvements on River
Road, you're going to
see the performance of
the two sections of River
Road be greatly enhanced
because of these intersec-
tion improvements not
to mention the safety. The
configuration alignment
and the contour of the


existing intersection is
just dangerous. We're very
fortunate we haven't had
more problems with it
than we've had."
The main improve-
ments of the intersection
- which include turn
lanes will be eight
lanes on the north leg
of River Road and seven
lanes on the south leg.
There will be eight lanes
on the east leg of U.S.
41 and six lanes on the
west leg; and a 245-foot
truss will be built across
the intersection to house
stoplights. One of the
main reasons Woodruff


was chosen over three
other bidders is due to its
experience with trusses.
"The truss construc-
tion is pretty significant,
and it's important to
do it right especially
because it's on (Florida
Department of
Transportation) right
of way," said Sarasota
County Project Manager
Robert Fakhri. "This
truss will be lengthy and
is similar to some you
see on Interstate 4 (in
Orlando) when you hit
Conroy Road. We wanted

With flags at Patriots
Park fluttering in a
gentle breeze and the sun
shining brightly, Gene
Sweeney addressed a
small group of supporters
at 8:46 a.m. Tuesday be-
fore a crane lowered the


steel beam from Tower
One onto the base plinth

"This is one of the final
components in what has
been a three-year success

on Tuesday, Sept. 11, in
this very same spot," said
Sweeney.
There will a full military

Recovered from the

and weighing more than
4,000 pounds was gently
lowered into place, then

stretches approximately


56 miles along the 1-75
corridor going north from
the Charlotte County line
near mile marker 172 and
ending near mile marker
228 just south of the 1-275
interchange in Manatee

TRIM notices mailed out


STAFF REPORT


The 2012 Truth in Millage
notices commonly known
as TRIM notices were
mailed out Monday in
Sarasota County, officials
from the property appraiser's
office reported.
TRIM notices are not prop-
erty tax bills; they are notices
of proposed property taxes,
property values and non-ad
valorem assessments. No
payment is due at this time.
The color TRIM form,
which underwent a state-
mandated overhaul two years
ago, is changed only slightly,
said Administrative Director
Brian Loughrey of the prop-
erty appraiser's office. He
said a change to the front
side is to make it "easier to
understand this year vs. last
year." The data fields are the
same, he said.
According to information
from the property appraiser's
website, www.sc-pa.com, one
improvement is the addition
of a quick-response code in


the lower right-hand corner
that gives property owners
the ability to have immedi-
ate access to their property
information. Those who have
a smartphone or a tablet with
a reader installed can take
a picture of this code and
immediately be directed to
their property's detail page
on the appraiser's website.
Once there, owners can view
their property's character-
istics, past values and maps
- even change their address,
if needed.
Tax notices customarily are
mailed out in late October or
early November by the tax col-
lector after millage rates have
been approved by local govern-
ments prior to the Oct. 1 begin-
ning of the next fiscal year. The
rate can be reduced after the
TRIM notice is sent out but
not increased. TRIM notices
also include the date and time
of the first budget hearing for
each taxing authority.
The Sarasota County
Commission approved a
resolution in July certifying


the proposed county not-to-
exceed ad valorem tax mill-
age rates at 4.0512 mills for
FY 2013.
The first page of the
Sarasota County TRIM notice
will show prior-year and
current-year data market
value, assessed value and
taxable value plus exemp-
tions, millage rates and taxes
proposed for each taxing
authority. The second page
includes the hearing dates,
non-ad valorem assessments
and explanations.
Property owners have three
ways to dispute the value
or exemption status of their
property. They may request an
informal conference with the
county property appraiser's
office; they can file a petition
online or at the county office
with the Value Adjustment
Board no later than 25 days
after TRIM notices are mailed
out; or they can file a civil
action in circuit court within
60 days of certification of the
tax roll (early October), with-
out using the first two steps.

Survey: economy, jobs are major challenges


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
While 55 percent of
respondents of the 2012
Sarasota County Citizen
Opinion Survey rated life
in the county as "excel-
lent," 70 percent affirmed
their household finances
are getting squeezed and
42 percent believed the
single biggest threat to
the economy was the loss
of jobs in the area.
The survey was
conducted by Susan
MacManus, a political
science professor at
the University of South
Florida in Tampa, work-
ing in conjunction with
the Florida Institute of
Government and the
telephone marketing
firm of Susan Schuler
and Associates Inc.
Conducted from May 29
to June 20, it consisted
of a telephone poll of
a random sample of
801 county residents 18
years old or older, with a
margin of error of plus or
minus 3.5 percent.
MacManus said the
survey, which has been
administered in the
county since 1992, has
changed significantly in
its focus over the years.
"The top concern for
a number of years was
population growth and
development when
the economy was hot,"
MacManus said. "Now,
of course, for the last
four or five years, it's
been concern about the


economy and jobs just
the opposite."
MacManus said county
residents' economic
concerns were closely
tied to their age, gender
and income level, with
those in the 18-29 age
range, women and those
with annual incomes of
less than $30,000 polling
more pessimistically
about seeing any im-
minent rebound in the
economy.
"Also, in a lot of those
questions, what made
a difference in people's
opinion was whether
they had a young child
living with them," she
said. "People living with
children versus people
that don't made for very
different perspectives on
life in Sarasota County."
Citizens ranked the
economy and jobs as
the most important
issue facing the county
for the fifth year in a
row, although fewer
people (3 percent) are as
concerned as they have
been in recent years,
the survey states. The
economy and jobs was
listed by 36 percent of
residents, followed by
traffic and transportation
(7 percent), popula-
tion growth and new
development (7 percent),
government and elected
officials (6 percent),
crime (5 percent) and
taxes (4 percent).
County Commissioner
Jon Thaxton was "not


surprised" at the sur-
vey's primary findings,
pointing to the housing-
market collapse as the
greatest influence on the
loss of jobs in the county.
"The housing market
acts as a kind of sys-
temic prop for so many
other factions to our
economy," Thaxton said.
"When construction and
the housing market went,
so went all the retail- and
service-oriented busi-
nesses that the construc-
tion employment sector
also subsidized."
Thaxton said that as
important as the con-
struction and housing
industry is and will
always be to the
county's economy,
more diversity in local
industries is essential
to sustaining it through
periods of flux.
"That's why over the
last three or four years
the county commission
has been concentrating
on bringing in businesses
and industries that are
not dependent upon
single-family resident
construction," he said.
"Those include medical
and research, sports
tourism, arts, motion
pictures and the creative
sector, in terms of young
entrepreneurs. All of
those are things that the
board has been heavily
invested in. It would be
a mistake to build our
economy back solely
based on construction,


and it would be a
mistake to think that you
could build the economy
back without a strong
construction industry."
MacManus said a new
wrinkle she detected
in the 2012 survey was
communication and
how people are getting
their news from various
places. More than three-
fourths (77 percent)
of respondents said
they use the Internet.
Eighty-five percent have
a cellphone, 26 percent
have a smartphone and
19 percent have a tablet.
Respondents cited tra-
ditional forms of e-gov-
ernment communication
in receiving county news,
including news releases
(33 percent), e-newsletters
(33 percent), email from
county commissioners
(29 percent) and Facebook
(23 percent). Newer forms
like Wiki (6 percent),
Twitter (5 percent) and
Flickr (2 percent) have
yet to catch on as much,
particularly among older
constituents.
"Older people are
really getting into social
media, although they still
would prefer to get their
news from a newspaper,"
MacManus said. "Sarasota
County is one of the most
educated and one of the
most civically engaged
counties in Florida."
Contrary to the distrust
Americans feel toward
their government leaders
at the national level,


survey respondents say
they trust local officials
more. About 35 percent
of those surveyed said
they trust county leaders
"almost always" or "most
of the time," compared
to 29 percent for federal
government leaders and
27 percent for those at
the state level.
County Commissioner
Joe Barbetta was both-
ered by the low public
trust rating.
"That always concerns
me," Barbetta said.
"Fortunately, we're better
than federal or state, but
I still think 35 percent is
a horrible number. We all
should be embarrassed
- federal, state and
local. That's nothing to
be proud of. Public trust
is something we strive for
every day."
Respondents voiced
strong opposition to
increasing the number of
terms county commission-
ers may serve, from two
to three four-year terms.
Just 31 percent supported
increasing the number of
terms, while 62 percent
objected to the idea.
Barbetta said the
respondents' position on
term limits was "impor-
tant," and was heartened
by the citizens' ratings
of county officials'
responsiveness.
"We got an off-the-
charts rating there,"
Barbetta said. "I mean,
90 percent said we treat-
ed them with respect,


and 84 percent said we
helped them in a timely
fashion, while 82 percent
said we give them correct
information. Those are
real positive things."
Despite the survey's
somewhat mixed
reviews, County
Commission Chair
Christine Robinson
valued its results as
"extremely important" to
the county each year.
"We rely on the find-
ings as we discuss county
policies, our budget and
spending priorities and
the level of programs
and services we pro-
vide," Robinson said.
"We regularly get input
from individual citizens
throughout the year, but
the survey results rep-
resent our community's
collective priorities."
Barbetta agreed, and
took it one step further.
"We need to continue
to focus on jobs and the
economy, and we can
always do better," he
said. "I think with the
Economic Development
Council, coupled with our
economic incentives for
things like sports tour-
ism, we're trying to bring
more people into the
community. Once they're
exposed to what we've got
here, they will relocate
their businesses here or
build a home here, or
eventually retire here."

Harold R. Babcock

On Friday Aug. 17, 2012,
after midnight, Harold Roy
"Hap" Babcock crossed
over into the
arms of our
'-:.-~ Lord God and
Jesus Christ.
Born Oct. 10,
1928, he was the son of
the late Orrin and Viola
Babcock of Groton, Conn.
He was brother to William
and Winifred Babcock,
also deceased.
He served in the Army
as a radio operator in
Japan. He then went on
to run the fermentation
lab at Pfizer for 40 years
making penicillin.
Harold was predeceased
by his first wife, Millie, and
his first daughter, Pamela
Susan Babcock, both of
Waterford, Conn. He was a
very wonderful father and
husband.
He is survived by his
beloved wife, Yolanda; his
daughter, Patricia Karen
Babcock, and son-in-
law, Peter "Bear" Barna,
of Waterford, Conn.
Also left behind were
stepdaughter Susan De
Battista and her husband,
Dominic De Battista; and
stepson Frank Gohringer.
Hap was an avid skeet
and pistol shooter and
he loved to compete. His
passion for airplanes and
flying was real and life-
long. He loved cooking and
growing orchids, telling
jokes and playing cards. He
loved going to the South
Jetty with Bear to watch
the boats and dolphins. A
belly-buster hot dog would
finish out the afternoon.
Hap lived and loved
graciously, and his love
and dedication to those
around him never ceased.
His love of God was para-
mount. He set an example
never to be forgotten. He
never complained, and his
concerns were for those he
loved instead of himself.
Hap will be greatly missed
and always remembered.

Man arrested for sexually molesting young relative


A 76-year-old Venice
man has been charged
with sexually battering
young
female fam-
ily member
in 2003,
authorities
said.
According
to aVenice
KEYS Police
Department
report, the victim, who
lives in Alachua County
and has been having
behavioral problems and
bouts of depression, con-
fided the alleged abuse
to relatives. They made
a report to the sheriff's
office in that county on
June 26, and the victim
was interviewed by a
child advocacy center on
July 5.
The girl told investiga-
tors that in the summer
of 2003, when she was
around 8 years old, she
visited Joseph Harvey
Keys, who was 67 at the
time, in Venice, where
he was the caretaker of
a home and grounds in
the 600 block of Venice
Ave. During the visit,
Keys allegedly took her to
the house and touched
her genitals, the report
shows. He allegedly
told her he was "going
to teach her about the
human body and how it
works."
The report shows while
at the house, Keys alleg-
edly used a sex toy on the
victim and performed a
sex act on her, had her
touch him and mastur-
bated in front of her. He
also warned her not to
say anything because "it
would ruin their family."
The girl told inves-
tigators she didn't say
anything to her family
until this year due to the
warning and because
she feared she wouldn't
be believed. However,
she did confide in some
friends in 2008-09 when
they were in eighth
grade, and corroborating
statements were col-
lected from them.
Keys, of the 100 block
of E. Alba St., Venice,
was arrested Friday and
charged with sexual
battery of a victim under
12 by a custodian and
two counts of lewd or
lascivious molestation

when they tried to inter-
vene. Witnesses said he

in the chest, spit on her,
then made two open-
handed finger pokes on
her head.
He ran when officers

Baker has designs on pastry market


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"I love making the
comfort food people
enjoy it is part of
the old-town nostalgic
bakery you visited years
ago and found good
homemade products,"
said Dee Baker, who has
always had a passion to
have a bakery.
She is now operating
her business, Dee Ziner
Cakes & Pastries, 773
South U.S. 41 Bypass,
from larger prem-
ises thanks to a second
expansion.
Two and half years
ago, she set up a small
bakery in a 100-square-
foot room at the rear of
a warehouse on U.S. 41
Bypass.
She was making
cherry pies for local
office people at the
original location until
the manager offered
to lease a small front
office with two windows
and an outside door. It
was the incentive she
needed to grow the
business.
Because the spaces
were not adjoining, she
carried baked items


around the building to
put in her new store
front. It was cramped
for space, filled with
two refrigerated cases, a
display table, a comput-
er desk and four people,
but sales continued
improving.
When two units
opened up on the
bypass, it was an ideal
opportunity to overcome
space restrictions and
combine operations.
Moving in and making
adjustments, it has been
transformed into her
bakery. Eight custom-
ers can sit and enjoy
cakes or old-fashioned
cinnamon rolls with
coffee or tea, and watch
cake preparation and
decorating.
"At a sampling table
four people can taste
wedding cakes, now
that we have everything
together," she said.
Her grandmother, a
farm cook and baker,
had taught her to make
homemade pies and
it started her love of
baking.
"My mother-in-law
and her sister made
wedding cakes, and
I became interested


in making my own
cakes when I moved to
Venice," said Baker.
At the time she was
completing a 30-year
career in pathology that
began in Benton, Ill.,
and ended when she
retired from a Sarasota
pathology business.
Feeding her desire to
have her own busi-
ness, she joined an
international society
and attended classes
at conventions prior to
opening.
Her fiance, John
Fowler, participates in
the business, handling
numerous tasks includ-
ing baking cakes. Two
years ago when they
opened, he sold their
cakes at the Venice
Farmers Market on
Saturday while she at-
tended the Punta Gorda
Farmers Market.
Popular items include
gooey butter cakes in
various flavors; cup-
cakes; pies; cookies;
and those old-fashioned
cinnamon rolls, from
a Swedish recipe. In
season they increase
the inventory to a full
range of pastries, plus
different cream pies

daily. Birthday, anniver-
sary and special occa-
sion cakes are available.
Currently they sell
German bread made in
Sarasota, but Baker has
plans to make her own
breads.


Nineteen-year-
old Caila Singh of
Englewood has assisted
for almost a year doing
an internship certifica-
tion course, including
taking Cordon Bleu bak-
ing and pastry training


in Minneapolis.
"I have learned how
to bake bread, ice and
decorate cupcakes,
make cookies, brown-
ies, pie crusts and sugar
flowers," she said.

Dine in shabby chic
style with a little touch

Proprietors Pete and
Stephanie Copeland
and Chef Troy Torman
serve lunch and dinner

and salads are avail-
able all day. A full bar,

Pete Copeland has
a 30-year career in the
restaurant industry,
including working as
a baker and a chef
in Bookbinders in
Philadelphia. In 1992,
he moved to Seattle
and, while working
with famous chef
Kaspar Donier, he met
Stephanie, who was
working for Holland
America. They moved to
Jacksonville and in 2002
opened the Turtle Shack
Cafe on Flagler Beach.
Five years later they
returned to Seattle and
opened two restaurants.
Moving this year to
Sarasota, they found the
Osprey location, remod-
eled it, hired 20 locals
and recently opened.

Publix buys local shopping center


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The Venice Commons
Shopping Center
anchored by Publix at
Pinebrook Road and
East Venice Avenue has
been purchased by the
Lakeland-based super-
market chain.
Seller Primerica
Developments Inc.,
owned by Richard
Trzcinski, acquired


14.5 acres at $1,038,000
from Venice Service
Corporation of Orlando
in 1997 and started con-
struction of the shopping
center in 2000.
A few weeks ago
Trzcinski's company
sold 84,087 square feet
of the plaza to Publix
for $15,670,000. The sale
did not include some
independently owned
outparcels.
"We are always looking


for good business op-
portunities, and the
purchase of this shop-
ping center is a positive
investment for our
company and our stock-
holders," said Shannon
Patten, Publix media and
community relations
manager. "While I can't
discuss the occupancy
rate, I can let you know
that we currently own
approximately 20 percent
of the shopping centers


in which we operate
stores."
In another major
investment, four in-
dustrial buildings with
office space in the front
and warehouse space at
the rear totaling 56,000
square feet at Sarasota
Business Park were ac-
quired by an out-of-state
buyer for $1,575,000. The
bank-owned properties
at 700, 710, 720, and 726
Commerce Drive, just


east of the Jacaranda
1-75 interchange, were
acquired by Homeport
LP out of Texas. It plans
to upgrade the space
with the goal of reaching
full occupancy.
At the time of the sale
there was 59 percent oc-
cupancy, including Jimco
Maintenance, the shop-
ping cart maintenance
company; Walgreens
Company management
offices; and Mahle Inc.,


an air conditioning and
heating service installa-
tion company.
"Although the prop-
erty has relatively high
vacancy, it's ideally
situated off the interstate
and it has great poten-
tial," said Fred Kolb,
CCIM, senior associate of
Land Services of Colliers
International Southwest
Florida, who brokered
the sale.

While planners and

sion couldn't get past the
idea of a solid fence along
most of the property.
"My problem with this
is I would hate to see
Harbor Drive turn into a

said Commissioner Jerry
Towery. "I have a personal
distaste for walled neigh-
borhoods ... and it violates

Currently, the com-
panies are finalizing
their design plans, and
construction is expected
to begin by the end of
2012, with anticipated
completion in July 2014,
according to Cindy
Clemmons, public
information director,
Florida Department of
Transportation.
The most visible
aspect of this broad-
based Advanced Traffic
Management System
project will be the erec-
tion of advance over-
head Dynamic Message
Signs to warn drivers


will be built up with
asphalt in an effort to
smooth the transition to
South River Road from
the curved intersection,
and box culverts will be
extended for drainage.
"It's impossible
to eliminate the hill
completely because
it's on a curvature, but
there will be a lot of

type plan of development."
"I don't believe it meets
the hardship criteria,"
said Commissioner Helen
Moore. "There are other
ways to do it. I would have
liked to see some sort of
landscape proposal."
Commissioners also
said a sectioned fence
interspersed with shrub-
bery also might have
been acceptable, but
the owner was sailing in
the Pacific Ocean and
couldn't be reached.
With the compromise
proposal defeated, the
commission decided to
vote down the original
proposal 5-1.
Commissioner Thomas
Murphy was the sole vote
in favor of the wall.
"I don't really see a
problem with a resident
wanting to put up a high

of impending delays,
detours, conjunction
and weather conditions.
For the system to
function, new traffic
management fiber net-
work systems are cur-
rently being installed
or upgraded along
regional roadways
throughout Sarasota
County, including
U.S. 41, Venice Avenue,
the new Honore Avenue
and other major city
and county roads.

said.
The limits of construc-
tion are approximately
1,000 feet in each direc-
tion on U.S. 41, and 2,000
feet to the south and
about 3,500 to the north
on River Road. Fakhri
said the pavement being
used in the project will
be equal to what is used

Ajax' path to
'corporate
citizenship'
In other news, the
final piece to the mining
operations puzzle in
North Venice is coming
into place.
The planning commis-
sion voted unanimously
Tuesday to recommend
city council approve a
preannexation agree-
ment with Ajax asphalt
company, and annexa-
tion into the city.
"It's been a long time
coming" said Marty
Black, project man-
ager at Kimley-Horn and
Associates Inc., repre-
senting the property
owner. Black was instru-
mental as former city

information coordina-
tor. It is expected that
a similar number in
Sarasota County will
benefit.
When complete, the
controllers and infra-
structure will link to the
Regional Transportation
Management Center,
which is shared with the
Manatee County ATMS.
Closed-circuit television
cameras will monitor
traffic movement along
the roadways, allow-
ing engineers to make
adjustments to signal
timing to improve or re-
lieve traffic congestion.
County staff assigned
to this center will extract
data generated from the
controllers to provide
a variety of reports on


in a 1.5-mile, four-lane
highway.
The county, the city of
North Port and the West
Villages Improvement
District entered into an
agreement on July 27,
2009, to help finance the
project. North Port will
pay for the cost of painting
the truss in its "city center
green" color, and also will

manager in moving the
cement and other mining
operations from near the
Intracoastal Waterway
out to the outer edge of
the city.
Ajax company's
69.5-acre property was
originally intended
for annexation along
with Venice Minerals,
APAC, and Miami Valley
Concrete. Those were
consolidated and an-
nexed in 2004, but the
Ajax property was not
included because of a
title issue. The property
was held under an option
at the time and the holder
of the option would
not give consent to the
annexation. That's since
been resolved, Black said.
Black credited prop-
erty owner Mike Horan,
with SJT-Venice LLC,

daily traffic counts, peak
traffic volumes and the
condition of controller
equipment. Staff at the
center will also be able
to perform trouble-
shooting operations,
reducing technician
time spent in the field.
These field elements
will be integrated into
the Southwest Florida
Traffic SunGuide
Center in Fort Myers
and the Sarasota and
Manatee Satellite
TMC in Bradenton.
This advanced traffic
management system
is jointly funded by
the counties with the

of the light fixture. The
city also is helping with
road impact fees, while the
county's penny surtax is
footing most of the bill.
County Commission
Chairwoman Christine
Robinson was quick to
thank the city for their
part in the agreement.
"This is an excellent

and the Venetian Golf &
River Club Community
Association for coming
together to iron out
resident complaints over
hours of operations,
noise and dust.
Jerry Jasper, represent-
ing the association,
supported the annexa-
tion. He said Horan first
approached the com-
munity in 2009, saying
he wouldn't apply for
annexation unless the
property owners reached
consensus over their
outstanding issues.
Council, which sup-
ports the petition, consid-
ers the annexation next.

For the fifth straight year, Sarasota
County residents have listed the
Economy/Jobs as the top issue facing
the county. This comes from the 2012
Citizens Opinion Survey conducted
under the eye of University of South
Florida political science professor
Susan McManus and now in its 21st
year.
The results present no real sur-
prises. As the economic recovery
continues to limp along, people
are concerned, but a little less than
previous years. According to the
survey, 36 percent of respondents
listed the economy as the top
concern, which is down 3 percent
from last year. Three percent? Hardly
reason to celebrate. That's within the
margin of error (3.5 percent), so the
year-to-year differential is negligible.
Pretty blah.


People are still feeling pinched.
Seventy percent said their house-
hold finances were being squeezed.
Digging into specific causes, employ-
ment was cited by 11 percent, home
insurance by 9 percent, healthcare
costs by 8 percent, personal debt
by 8 percent and property taxes by
8 percent.
More of a surprise may be the
28 percent who said their household
finances were just fine. That's twice
last year's response of 14 percent. An
indication of the easing of economic
concerns for some may be the per-
centage of those citing "investment
portfolio shrinkage," which was down
by 5 percent.
McManus noted overall stress-
inducing numbers have dropped
from 2009 to 2012. Those most
concerned about jobs dropped from
15 to 11 percent; property taxes from
13 to 8 percent; utilities from 10 to


2 percent and food costs from 6 to
3 percent.
Overall, the single biggest threat?
"Loss of jobs" at 42 percent, although
that category dropped 10 percent
from last year. A majority (56 percent)
thought the county's economy was
"on the road to recovery."
The message?
It certainly appears residents still
want county officials to do what they
can to bolster economic development.
Sixty-one percent put job creation at
the top of the list for county spending
priorities (tied with public safety).
While the numbers of those who
expressed concerns about traffic and
population growth inched up, the
figures for those are far away from
the boom years of the mid-2000s.
The overwhelming sentiment favors
an active government that assists job
creation.
Since early 2010, Sarasota County


has awarded incentives totaling
$5.8 million to 29 businesses looking
to expand or move to the county.
Ten nonprofits have been awarded
$3.8 million.
Combined incentive awards total
$10.4 million so far, with $5 million
yet to be paid out to the nonprofits
and qualifying businesses which
now must meet specific contrac-
tual criteria before receiving money.
Earlier this year, the county commis-
sion bolstered the incentive fund with
another $6 million, bringing the total
to $16.7 million.
The projected number of jobs
expected as a result of the incentives
is 2,400, with a projected average wage
of $43,680; to date, some 1,214 jobs
have been created, with an annual
wage of $31,051.
We still have a way to go. The aim is
true, though, and the public supports
it.


The distance


"Going the distance" has so
many meanings in our culture,
but none as vivid as this time
of year.
There are young adults
starting their senior year of high
school and college students do-
ing the same. At this point they
have almost gone the distance,
and we here at Gondolier Sun
wish these groups, and all the
underclassmen, much luck as a
new school year begins.
It's great to see the hustle and
bustle every morning as parents
and children make their way to
school. It brings a renewed feeling
of youth and what is yet to come
from this group of students.
The often-less-rewarded group
is all the teachers and others
needed to operate a school. Most
years these groups are overshad-
owed by the students, the sports
and the general activity of a
successful school year. A hum-
bler group of professionals is not
found out in the work world, but
their job is critical to our future.
Teachers begin playing a vital
role in our children's lives as early
as age 3 in the world we live in
today. From the beginning of a
child's education until the child
accepts the final degree at what-
ever education level they decide
to stop, teachers, professors and
instructors continue to influence
our children as they get ready to
leap into the professional world.
If we watch closely, we can
see the mental growth of a child
almost immediately once a pro-
fessional educator gets involved.
Our children begin to take on
adult behavior as far as responsi-
bility, organization, structure and
learning. The more they learn,
the more open to possibilities
our children become.


As we sit year after year and
watch our young adults gradu-
ate, I often wonder how many
people think to congratulate the
20 or more teachers who guided
their children to success. In the
crowd you mostly hear families
congratulating their child for
going the distance.
Don't me get me wrong
- the accolades are well
deserved, and we should be
proud of those kids for this
outstanding achievement.
But somehow, someway, our
society has to find a way to
congratulate and reward all
those teachers who assisted
these kids to go the distance.
If we can pay a man $10 mil-
lion a year to play a game, then
we ought to be able to find a way
to reward our teachers. A hug
from a kid who struggled and
made it warms a teacher's soul in
May, but it doesn't fix the brakes
on her 10-year-old vehicle, does
it? Thank a teacher every chance
you get; they have earned it.
Going the distance has a dif-
ferent meaning on the football
field. We hope every offensive
play our Venice Indians run
goes the distance. And football
season is already upon us,
which brings us to our annual
Gondo Bowl.
Our fantasy draft is next
Wednesday, and we still need to
fill some slots. Any local busi-
ness that would like to compete
in a fun-filled season for char-
ity should call Kim Phillips at
941-207-1230 A.S.A.P to get in
on the action. Be sure to have
picked a charity to represent in
the tournament.
Bogey's will be hosting the
draft and the awards parties
this year, and we look forward
to a fun time at both events.
We equally look forward to
the lights firing up on Friday
nights and the Venice High
School football team showcas-
ing its talent.
From the entire staff of the
Venice Gondolier Sun, we
wish our team a strong and
healthy football season.

HOW DO YOU LIKE THE NEW LANES OF 1-75? CALL US AT 941-207-1111.


Long enough. For the
umpteenth time, Challenger
baseball people are back at
city council so that one way or
another they'll get their way to
destroy Pinebrook Park. City
council has voted that they
cannot build on Pinebrook
Park. How much longer can
this go on?
Contractor kudos. My wife
and I would like to say "job
well done" to the construction
company's employees respon-
sible for adding a third lane
to 1-75 and building several
new bridges and improved
exit ways. We commuted
daily to Sarasota through the
construction zones for two
years, but no major traffic
slowdowns, accidents or
confusion. Such a project
could have been a nightmare
for daily commuters, but the
job was done professionally,
carefully and safely. Thank
you.
Too much. Why do leaders
in Challenger baseball
continue to say they have no
place to go in Venice? There are
five-plus acres in Plan B, which
is three plus acres more than
the Miracle League needed
in Sarasota to serve 170-plus
participants. The larger
numbers in Challenger inflated
estimates in Venice.
Show all. I agree that the
candidates for Charter Review
Board are very important posi-
tions of the election this year,
but the Gondo showed the
people that they think belong
there. If you're going to put an
opinion in, why not put the
positions of the other persons
you are not endorsing? Let's be
fair about it.
No sympathy. I just want
to respond to the 79-year-old
woman's sob story about a
ticket over at the hospital.
Actually, she had three
choices. She could have left
her name and phone number
on the car. She could have
gone into the hospital where
there are many, many phones.


Let 'em


Have It
She could have called the
police and reported it. She
could have been paged, so she
got what she deserved when
you don't follow rules.
Silence broken. I prefer
absentee voting. I also want
to comment on the misinfor-
mation in the letters that are
published about the bishop
and the bishop's comments
and stand and the Catholic
Church's stand. The damage
that people do in their letters
- I hope that people are really
aware of how silence can be
thought of as agreement with
some of these opinions that go
into the paper. I don't want to
be silent. The bishop does not
always take a stand. This time
he did and it is wonderful. True
Catholics and true Christians
are behind this stand against
Obamacare.
High times. About chronic
mowing problems in the
Venice area, between Baffin
and Seminole on Siesta along
the creek there: In some areas
weeds and stuff are growing 5
and 6 feet high. I know the city
was talking about clamping
down on individuals, but the
question is how can they get
individuals to do their jobs?


Editor's Note: That area
isn't in the city of Venice. If it
involves county rights of way,
the county expects to have
the areas mowed by the end
of the month. If it's private
property, contact county code
enforcement via the call center,
941-861-5000.
No change. On this idea
of changing the name of the
north bridge: When is the
last time anybody driving a
car had to contact the bridge
tender? Answer: They never
do. The people who need
to talk to the bridge are the
boaters. Every guide book,
every chart, every nautical
map shows the Hatchett
Creek Bridge as the Hatchett
Creek Bridge. If you arbitrari-
ly change the name, people
are not going to know which
bridge to call. It's important
to leave it alone.
Go ahead. Challenger
organizer Rich Carroll and
supporter Steve Boone
indicate that they're going
to pick up their ball and go
home. If they have a better
deal elsewhere, they should
go take it. Sounds like a bit
of ego getting in the way of
common sense.
Why KMI? Name the north
bridge for KMI? Whoever knew
what KMI meant for future
Venice visitors? Maybe, "Keep
Moving Idiot"? Rather, name
it Paradise Bridge, or Retired
Playground Bridge, or Shark
Tooth Capital Bridge. How
about a southbound sign,
Entering Beautiful Venice,
and a northbound sign,
Turn Around, You Just Left
Something Wonderful?
Historic arena. I recently
went to see the Venice Train
Depot. What a delight that was.
This is a real asset to Venice.
I would like to get an answer
from the historical society in
your paper as to why it doesn't
consider the Circus Arena a
historic site. It's seen 50 years
of public usage. Why doesn't it
get its due?

All Faiths Food Bank by the numbers


Here are some num-
bers for you:
400 the number of
volunteers who sort do-
nated food at All Faiths
Food Bank.
500 the number
of volunteers involved
in the BackPack Kids
Program.
41 the number of
volunteers involved in
the Growing Healthy Kids
Program.
38 the number of
volunteers involved in
the Cooking Matters
Program.
At All Faiths Food Bank,
we are forever grateful
to our volunteers who
make the work that we


do possible. The passion,
generosity and commit-
ment that we see from all
of our volunteers over the
past 23 years surprises
and humbles us every day.
The growth of a
program directly cor-
relates to the number
of volunteers who are
dedicated to seeing its
success. When we don't
have enough community
support, we simply do
not have the power to
run programs effectively.
Volunteers are the
backbone of the Cooking
Matters, Growing Healthy
Kids and BackPack Kids
programs. Through these
programs we are able to
ensure our children have
the skills and knowledge
to lead healthy lives.
Our BackPack Kids
Program provides meals
to more than 1,500 chil-
dren throughout Sarasota
and DeSoto counties, in-
cluding more than 500 in
South County. Currently
in the South County area


we have served Garden
Elementary, Laurel
Nokomis, Oak Park South,
Taylor Ranch Elementary,
Venice Elementary,
Venice Middle,
Venice High, Atwater
Elementary, Englewood
Elementary and
Lamarque Elementary
schools. Volunteers
involved in this program
provide funding and
pack backpacks for their
adopted school through
their own social groups,
churches, temples or
gated communities.
Through our Cooking
Matters Program, vol-
unteers have been able
to benefit 185 children
and families in the South
County area. Volunteers
help run cooking-based
nutrition education classes
by acting as nutrition
instructors, chef instruc-
tors and class assistants.
Our nutrition instruc-
tors are individuals who
have a background in or
a passion for nutrition.


These volunteers teach
participants what it means
to be healthy and assist
participants with skills,
ideas and solutions that
enhance their nutrition
knowledge.
Our chef instructors
are individuals who have
a cooking background or
just a love of food. These
volunteers not only assist
participants in improving
their skills and knowledge
of cooking, but also teach
participants how to cook
healthful food while on a
budget.
Last, our class assistants
help where needed
throughout the class series.
In everything from helping
with setup and cleanup to
making sure participants
are on task to making
grocery bags for partici-
pants, class assistants are a
fundamental aspect of the
Cooking Matters classes.
In the South County
area, 928 children and
families are able to
participate in Growing


Healthy Kids. Growing
Healthy Kids is a great
fit for a volunteer with a
passion for nutrition and
working with children.
Volunteers adopt a pre-
school and visit once a
month (October through
April) to teach children
about the importance
of nutrition, fitness and
gardening. Through
puppet shows, stories
and physical activities
our volunteers teach
preschool-age children
what it means to be
healthy and how to grow
big and strong.
It has been said that
volunteers go unpaid not
because they are worth-
less, but because they are
priceless. We always want
to make our programs
bigger and better in the
South County area, and
the only way we can
make this happen is by
having a larger number of
people willing to volun-
teer their time and talents
to these programs.


If you are already a
volunteer for All Faiths
Food Bank, "thank you"
does not express how
grateful we are to you. If
you haven't volunteered
for the food bank before,
please contact me at
941-379-6333. We are
always in need of new
volunteers, and would
greatly appreciate your
sharing your time and
talents with us.
All Faiths Food Bank's
South County event,
Cooking with Class
Southern Style, an
interactive dinner, will be
held Thursday, Sept. 27,
at Plantation Golf &
Country Club. Please join
us and help support the
food bank with all of our
program efforts. To learn
more, contact Aundria
Castleberry at All Faiths
Food Bank, 941-379-6333.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


It's about freedom

Editor:
I have been follow-
ing the letters sent to
the Gondolier Sun by
Ed Martin and Susie
Zavodnyik, and the
answers to those letters,
with great interest.
I am always surprised
when someone says birth
control is a woman's
health issue. Pregnancy is
a natural function and not
a disease, in my mind.
I also question Mrs.
Zavodnyik's allegations
that the bishops are
trying to influence the
November election with
their stance on the HHS
mandate. I don't believe
the bishops or the church
brought this issue up.
I believe the current


administration brought
this issue up and the
bishops and the religious
community are only try-
ing to protect our religious
rights guaranteed under
the First Amendment to
the Constitution.
Protecting the unborn
is not new to the Catholic
Church, and neither is
opposing birth control.
Thank God we have
bishops and lay people
who are willing to stand
up for our freedoms.
Mr. Martin's idea is that
under the HHS mandate
religious organizations
don't have to provide
abortion-inducing drugs;
they have to provide their
workers with the health
benefits that are ordinarily
granted to employees. I
think Mr. Martin missed


the point. The benefits
required by the HHS
mandate does require
that the employer provide
both birth control and
abortion-inducing drugs.
The religious beliefs of
the Catholic Church have
been to oppose these
methods of birth control for
2,000 years and it has been
guaranteed it will be able to
practice these beliefs by the
U.S. Constitution and the
Bill of Rights.
I want to thank Bishop
Frank Dewane and the
priests of Epiphany
Cathedral for their dedi-
cation and willingness to
fight for religious free-
doms that we are guaran-
teed as U.S. citizens.

Hold the line

Editor:
A big thank-you to
our wonderful Venice
Fire Department, which
was able to respond
on Sunday, Aug. 12, to
the Wildlife Center of
Venice's call for help in
a rescue attempt for a
juvenile brown pelican.
He was hanging about
40 feet up in a slash
pine tree at Humphris
Park, near the South
Jetty. Unfortunately, we
were all too late to save
the bird, which had a
hook in its leg and had
become entangled in the
fishing line an igno-
minious and torturous
death, and traumatic to
see.
One way we can all


help animals caught in
line: Please do not cut
the line. Gently pull
the bird or sea turtle to
shore, or down a pier to
the beach, and get an
assist. The number for
the Wildlife Center is

Legacy tarnished

Editor:
John Thaxton
underestimated the
intelligence and in-
tegrity of the voters of
Sarasota County.
The style and tone of
his campaign were an
insult. His opponent


could have easily gone
down the same road with
much factual ammuni-
tion gerrymandering
the redistricting, or
blowing off the term
limits mandated by the
voters of the county. Mr.
Thaxton was rewarded
with 25 percent of the
vote and an end to his
political career.
I had always been a
big fan of Mr. Thaxton's
outstanding work on
environmental issues
and his support of
one of the best park
systems in the state.
Unfortunately, his fine
work will be forever
overshadowed by his
campaign.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SEASON PREVIEW



Two-way players occupy skill positions


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

If some of the names you're
about to read look familiar,
it's probably because they've
already been written about in
this space sometime during the
past few weeks.
Venice High head coach
John Peacock isn't afraid to use
his most talented players at a
variety of different positions,
and the depth chart for the skill
positions on offense reflects
that ideology.
Quarterback Kale Youtzy
takes over the signal-calling du-
ties from Grant Flessner, who
graduated last spring. Youtzy,
who also starts at safety for
the Indians, is an adept runner
who can make plays through
the air as well.
"He's going to be involved
heavily in our run game," said
Peacock, adding, "He's shown
in practice and in our scrim-
mages that he can make the
throws we're asking him to
make."
Youtzy's backup is sopho-
more Misho Cemovich, who
Peacock said is improving on a
weekly basis.
At tailback, Terry Polk
is coming off a promising
sophomore campaign that
saw him run for 474 yards and
four touchdowns. Flessner and
University of Miami signee
Danny Dillard combined for
1,860 yards and 35 touch-
downs on the ground last
season, and with those two
out of the picture, Polk would


Kale Youtzy will take the reins of the
Indians offense this season.

appear to be next in line for
the lion's share of carries.
Polk is also a dangerous
receiving threat, averaging 22
yards per catch on 14 recep-
tions last season.
"He's had a great offseason,"
said Peacock. "He's a very
elusive runner."
Junior Isaac Whitney, who
starts at cornerback, is ex-
pected to see playing time
behind Polk and in the Indians'
lightning package, in which he
replaces the fullback. Peacock
lauded Whitney for his reliabil-
ity, toughness and versatility.
Senior fullback Dom Fanti
returns as the lead blocker
and is expected to anchor the
Indians' ground game in much
the same fashion as he did in
2011.


Junior tailback Terry Polk is primed for a breakout 2012.


"He's one of the bright spots
on the offense," said Peacock
of Fanti, who also starts on
the defensive line. "We feel
really good about Dom, as
far as blocking and doing
what we ask of him in the run
game. He's really solid at that
position."
Senior Quaheem Kapinski,
who starts alongside Whitney at
cornerback, enters the season
as the No. 1 receiver. Dustin
Ehling, Langston Provitt and
Shane Burns are engaged in
a competition for the Z spot,


which was manned by Youtzy
last season.
Peacock said, "We'll see as
the season goes on who steps
up and takes that role on full
time."
Playing on both sides of the
ball can be physically taxing,
but Peacock believes his play-
ers are up to the task.
"I think it's a little tougher
at the beginning of the
season," he said. "We work
these guys pretty hard during
the offseason and we've got
a good summer program, so

they're in good shape when
we start. But it takes a couple
games to adjust. There's noth-
ing like playing a game and
getting used to the condition-
ing aspect of it. It might take
them two or three weeks, but
come district time, they'll be
ready."
The Indians will host
Palmetto High in a preseason
game Friday, Aug. 24, at Powell-
Davis Stadium. Kickoff is at
7:30 p.m.

POP WARNER FOOTBALL


Callahan recognized for 20 years of volunteerism


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice Vikings
recognized junior midget
(Crusaders) head coach
Rod Callahan at the an-
nual Vikings Valhalla for
his 20th year of volun-
teering at the Pop Warner
level. Callahan played for
the Vikings in the 1970s
and was a running back
for Venice High, graduat-
ing in 1985.
The Valhalla, which

Callahan said that 1996

THRILLER
FROM PAGE 10

20-25, 21-25 and 15-13.
Venice exploded out
of the gates, outworking
Berkeley Prep from the
get-go and taking the
first two games hand-
ily. Senior setter Danica
Yoder said the team was
firing on all cylinders
at the start. "The team
just did so well the first
two games," she said.


"Our passes were on,
everything was working
so well."
It appeared as though
Venice was going to
cruise to victory, but
Berkeley Prep showed
some of its champion-
ship resolve by taking
the next two games.
Junior Sidney Brown
was dominant for the
Buccaneers all night, and
Venice had few answers
for Brown's powerful
offensive repertoire.
"I'll tell you, she's


probably the best
player in the state," said
Venice head coach Brian
Wheatley. "You could tell
she was taking over the
match."
In the fifth and final
game, the Buccaneers
seemed poised to finish the
comeback when they took
a 13-11 lead. The Indians
had other plans. "Our
team knew we wanted it
so badly," said senior Holly
Mattmuller, who had 17
kills and 18 digs. "We said,
'Let's get this done.'"


With the fifth game tied
at 13, Mattmuller's serve
clipped the top of the
net and fell softly to the
floor, giving Venice match
point. The Buccaneers
set up a play for Brown,
but this time the Indians
defense was ready for
her. Brown's spike was
blocked and the ball
rocketed down to the
floor, giving Venice the
win. Yoder said of Brown,
"She's definitely one
of the best hitters I've
played against. She's a


great all-around player,
but we just put up a really
good block against her."
Wheatley said, "What
a way to start the season.
We haven't beaten that
team in four years. It was
going to take a mon-
strous effort to knock off
a team like that. It's not
like we've won anything,
but it is a great way to
start the season and see
where this team is. It's a
huge confidence booster.
"There's something
funny about this team,


SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A

they just have an eerie
sense of confidence
about them."
Mattmuller agreed. "It
builds confidence as a
team, and now we know if
we can accomplish this we
can accomplish anything."
Sophomore Gen
Beaumire had 14 kills for
the Indians and senior
Taylor Jais added 18 digs.
The Indians will con-
clude their preseason on
Thursday when they host
Evangelical Christian at
7p.m.

County Commission approves $1,000 employee bonus


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County em-
ployees who haven't seen a
raise in five years soon will
see a little extra something
with their paycheck just
in time for the holidays.
At a budget workshop
Monday, the county
commission approved by
a 4-1 margin a one-time,
lump-sum bonus of $1,000
for all of the county's 1,023
nonunion, technical and
professional employees,
to be included in the
2012-13 fiscal year budget.
The estimated total cost
of the payments will be
$1,478,000, including taxes.
"People are beginning
to give raises and give


some type of lump-sum
payments," County
Administrator Randal Reid
said. "The lump sum is
probably the cautious way
to do that, so we are pro-
ceeding this way to give
some kind of compensa-
tion to our employees."
Reid had pushed for the
payment twice previously,
including at budget work-
shops in June. He said then
that a one-time, lump-
sum payment is possible
because of $3.2 million
in newly realized funds.
County staff had prepared
the preliminary budget
assuming a 4 percent
decrease in property
values; however, this year's
property tax value de-
crease was estimated at


only 1.17 percent.
Commissioner Joe
Barbetta made the motion
to direct the payment after
a couple of minutes of
discussion. Commissioner
Jon Thaxton quickly
seconded the motion.
"I think the great
majority of our employees
work extremely hard, and
I think it's going to be
looked at from the outside
as not a good time to do
this," Barbetta said when
explaining his motion.
"But we're in a competitive
situation, and I think we
have to protect our em-
ployees. Gas prices have
gone up, and cost of living
has gone up, so I think it's
time for us to do this."
"If we continue in


this economic recovery,
you're already starting to
see some pick ups in the
private sector, and we run
the risk of going four-five
years without any sort of
compensation increases
and having another drain
of the county's person-
nel resources," Thaxton
added. "This at least shows
staff that there is some
light at the end of the
tunnel and there's a reason
to stay employed with
Sarasota County."
Commission Chair
Christine Robinson was
the only dissenting vote.
"My heart wants to
vote for this, but my head
is telling me something
different about this situ-
ation we're in, and I want


to make sure we're out of
it first," she said. "What's
driving me in this is the
negative number (the de-
crease in money brought
in due to decreased
property values) that we're
still in ... and I just can't
get past that. The staff
works hard, and I see what
they're doing every day.
People don't realize how
hard they work for citizens
and the hours they put in.
It squeezes me at the heart
to vote no on this."
In doling out the
payments tax-free for
employees approximate-
ly $703,000 will come out of
the county's General Fund
and $775,000 from other
funds. The bonuses will be
paid in mid-October after


taxes and go toward this
year's salary only. The aver-
age salary for employees in
the county is approximately
$48,700 which translates
into a 2 percent bonus
payment for the average
employee and much larger
for lower-level workers.
Firefighters, firemed-
ics, paramedics, EMS
supervisors, lieutenants,
training captains and
battalion chiefs, whose
contracts are negotiated
with the International
Association of Firefighters,
will not be included in the
payment cycle. County
administration, commis-
sioners, directors and the
county attorney will not be
eligible for the payment.

Commission approves Medicaid payment


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County
Commissioners approved
a payment plan at a
workshop Monday for the
state-certified $3.57 mil-
lion Medicaid backlog, to
start with the fiscal year
2012-13 budget. The ac-
tion must be made formal
at later budget hearings.
Inaccuracies and a lack
of reliable information
had caused the county
to deny $6.4 million in
Medicaid claims from
the state since 2001. The
state had reviewed the
claims disputed by the
counties, and on July 13


issued drastically lowered
open-claims billings.
Sarasota County went
from owing more than
$7 million in March down
to $3,570,168, a difference
of about $3.4 million.
During its budget
workshop, the commission
discussed two options to
pay back the backlog and
decided to pay 85 percent
of the certified amount,
or $3,034,033, and waive
the right to protest. This
option carries a 15 percent
discount that comes out to
$536,134. The county will
pay $1,011,548 in FY2013,
and $505,774 in each of the
next four fiscal years.


The county declined the
option to pay 100 percent
of the certified amount
of $3,570,168 and protest
the billings through an
administrative hearing
process. County staff had
reviewed the billings and
continued to dispute
$177,250 of the amount.
The dispute between
the state and counties
regarding the claims arose
after legislation enacted
in March gave the state
authority 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
inaccuracies to receive a
refund or a credit.
Led by the Florida
Association of Counties,
55 counties including
Sarasota, Charlotte and
DeSoto filed a lawsuit
against the Medicaid
legislation.
"I support (the pay-
ment plan), but it's hard
to swallow and this
really is a horrible process,"
Commissioner Joe Barbetta
said Monday. "The state
should be very embar-
rassed about going forward
with something like this."
County Attorney
Stephen DeMarsh said


there are negotiations
going on that may address
the Medicaid system and
the county "may not get
a lot by remaining in the
lawsuit as it presently is."
Regardless, commission-
ers who unanimously
approved the 85 percent
option said they want to
move forward in the suit.
"I've got a feeling we're
going to see something
like this again with some-
thing else," Commission
Chair Christine Robinson
added. "That's why I
was concerned with
the lawsuit and want to
make sure we're able to
continue on with that.


Seeing how staff only
protests a portion of the
amount, going with the
85 percent is logical in this
circumstance."
Because Monday's meet-
ing was a workshop, no for-
mal action could be taken.
Public hearings for the first
and second readings of the
FY2013 budget before its
adoption are scheduled
for 7 p.m. Sept. 10 at
the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center,
4000 South Tamiami Trail
in SouthVenice, and 7 p.m.
Sept. 24 at the County
Administration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd. in Sarasota.

Zucker named to delinquency-prevention group


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Sarasota County School
Board Chair Caroline
Zucker has been named
as one of 16 appointees to
Gov. Rick Scott's Juvenile
Justice and Delinquency
Prevention State Advisory
Group.
Zucker, 73, said the
group most likely would
oversee juvenile justice
matters, and make
recommendations for
programs and funding
to help wayward kids.
Sarasota resident Michael
T. Long, 20, a student at
New College of Florida,


will join Zucker as the
only other local member
of the advisory group.
Their terms will end at the
pleasure of the governor.
"I put my name in about
a year and a half ago,"
Zucker said. "I heard the
governor was going to
appoint me, but actually
forgot about it until the
word just came through."
Zucker is no stranger
to serving on boards that
help area youth. She said
she has been active with
juvenilejustice for the last
20 years, and currently
serves on the K-12 Public
School Facility Funding
Task Force, appointed by


Speaker Dean Cannon
of the Florida House of
Representatives. That
task force explores issues
related to the fairness
of capital funding dis-
tribution for traditional
public schools and charter
schools, including funding
needs, existing funding
and revenue sources,
long-term debt, class-size
requirements and the use
of facilities in Florida's
67 countywide school
districts.
"I've also served at
local juvenile justice
meetings and have been
chair of their legislative
liaison," Zucker said.


"And I served as chair for
two years on the Circuit
12 board."
Zucker added that she
applied for a spot on
the Juvenile Justice and
Delinquency Prevention
State Advisory Board
because she knew of no
one else from this area
represented on it.
"That covers Manatee,
Sarasota and DeSoto
counties," she said. "There
was nobody we could say
was even looking out for
us or representing us. No
one. That's when I decided
to apply."
Zucker said it is too
soon to know when the


board will meet or what
it will deem as its initial
priorities.
She said her own


priority as a member of
the board will be to see to
the educational needs of
children in Circuit 12.

Wedding surprises mom in nursing home


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
It was going to be
just another birthday
celebration.
The family gathered
Sunday afternoon,
July 29, for what
Pinebrook Care and
Rehabilitation resident
Andree Segui, 80,
thought was her daugh-
ter Caroline's birthday
party.
There was Caroline,
of course; Armand,
Caroline's 8-year-old
son from a previous
marriage; her fiance,
Stephan Loison; her
brother Patrick and
his wife, Caya; her
mother, Andree, her
father, Joseph; other
family and friends; and
Pinebrook staff and
residents.
This would be quite a
birthday party, indeed.
"Why are we going
out to the courtyard?"
Andree wondered.
Then she was told
there would be a wed-
ding ceremony instead
of a birthday party, and
she was shocked and
overjoyed.
"It was a big surprise,"
she said a few days
later, after all was said
and done. "I can't cry
tears, but I feel them."
Caroline and Stephan
were both born in
France and had spent
time in America over
the years. However,
they returned to France,
where they met in
Montpellier, Feb. 18,
2009, and will make
France their home.
The newlyweds honey-
mooned in the Florida
Keys.
Pinebrook Care
hosted the 20-minute
courtyard wedding and
hour-long reception
in the main dining
room. Casual Weddings
by Olson & Olson, of
Sarasota, officiated the
wedding ceremony.
Pinebrook provided
a wedding cake and
refreshments and deco-
rated the dining room.
"It was a pleasure to
be part of such a happy
occasion," said Janet
MacDonald, certified
activity director at
Pinebrook.
The road to Venice
from French beginnings
was a long and joyful
journey for Andree and
Joseph.


Andree was born
in Alsace-Lorraine,
France, which borders
Germany. As a child,

she moved with her
family to Beziers, in
southern France. She
met Joseph in high
school at a dance, she
said. They fell in love,
married and had three
children two boys
and a girl.
Now, son Patrick lives
in Washington, D.C.,
and is a hairdresser,
following in his father's
footsteps; another
son, Didier, lives in
Ireland; and Caroline
lives in Nice, France.
Patrick participated
in a haircut-a-thon at
Pinebrook in November
2011.
In 1970, the family
moved to America, at
the prompting of a
noteworthy American.
Joseph once cut Walt
Disney's hair at a
salon in Nice when
Disney was vacation-
ing on the southeast
coast of France on
the Mediterranean
Sea. Disney suggested
Joseph move to America
if he wanted a better
job. So he did.
"We wanted a
change," Andree said.
They lived in Virginia,
near Washington,
D.C., before moving to
Sarasota in 2000. They
had visited Sarasota
several times over the
years and liked it.
"My husband retired
and wanted to move to
Florida," Andree said.
"It's warmer than D.C."
Andree was begin-
ning to have some
health problems and
was involved in a car
crash. She was living
in a nursing home in
Sarasota, but it closed,
she said. She and her
husband moved to
Venice and Andree

moved into Pinebrook
Care in Venice about a
year ago.
Suzanne Awenenti,
a very close friend of
Andree's, talked about
her longtime friendship
with her. Awenenti also
was born in France and
lives in the Sarasota
neighborhood where
Andree and Joseph used
to live. She visits Andree
every day, as does
Joseph.
"We met in
Washington, D.C.,"
Awenenti said. "She
(Andree) worked at the
front desk of the salon
and we talked when I
picked up my husband,


who was getting his
hair done. Because of
the language, we would
get together for lunch
or dinner and became
friends."
Awenenti and her
husband came to
Florida and, after her
husband's death a few
years ago, she main-
tains her friendship
with Andree.
How did Andree feel
after her daughter
surprised her with the
wedding?
"I'm very happy she got
married here," Andree
said. "He (Stephan) is a
very nice man."

OMG,'Legally Blonde' is good fun


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Cassie Caballero (Elle
Woods), Billy Masuck
(Warner) and John
Andruzzi (Professor
Callahan) are just some of
the reasons the Manatee
Players' production of
"Legally Blonde" is so
much fun.
Edgar, the dog star
playing the role of Elle's
chihuahua Bruiser, could
not steal this show, cute
as he is. That he was
found on the streets of
Bradenton as a stray
mixed breed of indeter-
minate origin by theater
managing director Rick
Kerby is yet another story.
Cleaned up and given a
haircut, Edgar becomes
a quite passable chihua-
hua. Edgar lives with
new owner Karen Lalosh
(Paulette).
The high-energy
musical centers around
a Malibu Barbie type
(Elle) who is dumped by
her boyfriend (Warner)
because he is heading off
to Harvard Law School
and needs to marry
someone more serious
and also better con-
nected politically if he
will be a senator by the
time he is age-eligible.
Not accepting defeat so
easily, Elle manages to
get into Harvard Law
herself where, with her

pink clothes and Bruiser,
she not only survives but
eventually thrives, using
her native intelligence to
win cases that stump the
school's top students.
Elle's Delta Nu Greek
chorus, her hairdresser
Paulette and the "Whipped
Into Shape" jump rope
and dance number are just
some of the reasons to take
a drive up to Bradenton.
The cast is huge and
many of the names will be
new even to diehard area


theater fans, but this show
is fun and should leave
most audience members
saying "Oh my God" a lot
on the way home.
My only disappoint-
ment was the old-fash-
ioned swimsuit version
of a Playboy bunny suit
designed for Elle. When
you have a star who
can wear the real thing,
there is no excuse to raid
Grandma's closet.
Tickets are $26 per
person for adults and $13


for students. For tickets,
call the box office at
941-748-5875.
One caveat: "Legally
Blonde" is being per-
formed in the original
home of the Manatee
Players, 102 Old Main St.
(West 12th Street) north
of State Road 60, in Old
Bradenton. The new
theater is expected to open
at 502 W Third Ave. with
"Miss Saigon" playing from
March 21 through April 14.

WBBT holds auditions


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Heading into its 13th
season, the West Coast
Black Theatre will hold
auditions for only the
second time.
Founded in December
1999 by Nate Jacobs, the
troupe operated more
like a small repertory
company in its early years,
performing four to five
musical shows annu-
ally. Most were created by
Jacobs, who also assem-
bled the talented troupe.
Some players moved on -
sometimes to Broadway
or Hollywood as the
core group, including
Jacobs, cranked out one
good show after another
on a budget and without a
home of their own.

Finally, they have a place

and hold rehearsals as
well as shows.
It is there that auditions
for the coming season will
be held from 10 a.m. to
2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15,
with call-backs the next
day from 2 to 5 p.m. The
cut-off date to sign up for
an audition is Sept. 1.
Actors must be 18 or
older, with acting, singing
and some dancing ability.
Prepare a 32-bar song and
two one-minute "con-
trasting" monologues.
The song needs to be
provided at registration.
Jacobs said last year
was the first year during
which the troupe held
open auditions.
"We found some great


talent living within driving
distance of our theater," he
said, adding that he hoped
many of those would be
back this year as well as
others who would be a
"good fit for our company."
Present company
players include: Apphia
Campbell, Jnana Cooper,
Jay Dodge II, Naaria
Jacobs, Leon S. Pitts II,
Henry Porter II, Tsadok
Porter, Sheldon Roden
and Teresa Stanley.
The coming season
will include two new
musical reviews by
Jacobs: "'50s Jukebox
Review" (Nov. 16-Dec. 16)
and "Soul Crooners 2"
(Feb. 22-March 24).

Youth concert on tap


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
The third Lost-N-Found
young adult concert
will be held Saturday,
Sept. 22, 6 p.m., at Venice
Community Center, 326
S. Nokomis Ave., Venice.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets are $5 in advance,
$7 at the door.
The event is sponsored
by The WareHouse of
Venice Inc., a local not-for-
profit youth organization.
The Lost-N-Found series
is how The WareHouse
"finds" local talented
young performers, pro-
vides them a performance
venue and directs the
youth steering committee
to put it all together.
The concert will consist


of bands and individuals
performing in a variety
of forms, from acoustic
solos to full-on, plugged-
in musical sounds.
Linda Banister, ex-
ecutive director of The
WareHouse, said she is
proud of the talented
young people in South
Sarasota County.
"The youth came up
with the title of the series
and design for the T-shirts,"
Banister said. "They work
with our adult volunteers to
raise funds, find talent, plan
the lineup and concessions,
emcee the event and do
the setup and cleanup, all
without complaint."
The WareHouse has
been promoting and
planning events and


community opportunities
for middle school, high
school and college age
young people since 2003.
"The community has
supported these young
people in many ways,"
Banister said. "The Venice
Community Center is
great to work with and
has wonderful, state-of-
the-art facilities for these
talented youth to perform
in. The financial support
from the community is
outstanding and is en-
couraging to the youth."
The concert is open
to people of all ages. For
more details, go to www.

School bus safety is a top priority


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

It's a new school year,
and motorists and students
alike should realize that
only one careless moment
can become a tragedy.
According to the Florida
Department of Education
and the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles, an estimated
17,000 students a year
are treated for school bus
injuries.
A survey conducted ear-
lier this year showed that
more than 21,000 motorists
illegally passed stopped
school buses on one day in
April. By observing school
bus safety laws, citizens


can help keep children safe
while they travel to and
from school on the yellow
school bus.
The Florida Department
of Education and the
Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles
offer the following
reminders to help motor-
ists promote safety and
prevent injuries.
*Always be alert, cau-
tious and patient around
children, crosswalks, bus
stops, schools, school buses
and school parking lots.
*When approaching a
school bus that is stopped
with its red lights flashing
and stop arms extended,
motorists traveling in
both directions are


required to stop in nearly
every instance.
Obey all traffic laws
and speed limits, paying
extra attention to the
lower speed limits in
school zones.
Do not pass other
vehicles in school zones
or at crosswalks.
Do not change lanes
or make U-turns in
school zones.
*Watch for and obey
signals from school
crossing guards.
Do not text or use a
cell phone while driving.
Only drive or park in
authorized areas to drop
off or pick up children at
school.
Go to www.FloridaSchool


BusSafety.gov for more
information on school bus
stop laws. School bus safety
tips are available on the
school district's website at
www.sarasotacounty
schools.net/transportation.
Click on "Bus Route" and
find bus-related topics,
such as "Getting Back to
School Safely."
Parents and guardians
should read the safety
tips with their children
and discuss why they are
important. Tips include
practicing the safest ways
to get to and from school,
waiting with small chil-
dren at the bus stop and
cautioning children not to
run into the street, ever.
In the online topics,


students are guided on
when to arrive at the bus
stop, how to wait safely for
the bus and to never talk
to strangers or get into a
stranger's car. Students are
cautioned to keep a safe
distance from the bus, not
walk behind a bus and be
quiet and respectful while
riding the bus.

School District cont, it'tred

New people, facilities and programs greet students


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

About 41,985 students
were expected to arrive
at Sarasota County pub-
lic schools Monday. Most
greeted new people,
facilities or programs.
Students at Taylor
Ranch Elementary
met new principal Bill
Bolander. Venice High
School opened a new
classroom wing as part
of its multi-year rebuild.
A new administration
building and gym are
scheduled to open in the
fall of 2013. A ground-
breaking for a perform-
ing arts center being
built atVHS in partner-
ship the city of Venice is
scheduled for October.
Major renovations to


some of the infrastruc-
ture are under way at
Laurel Nokomis School.
The projects all are
designed to upgrade
facilities to support
21st-century learning.
Many students will
use new technology in
classrooms or on their
own electronic devices.
The district has begun
incorporating digital
textbooks for middle-
school math, science and
social studies.
Some middle-school
students began to use a
mobile application on
their own devices last
year. All middle-school
students will be able to
access a new web-based
interactive electronic
social studies textbook
at school and at home


this year, complete with
video clips and access
to up-to-the-minute
information, such as
presidential election
campaign activities.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation is funding
middle- and high-school
initiatives tied to an
increased national em-
phasis on skills related
to science, technology,
engineering and math
(STEM). Each district
middle school is open-
ing the first phase of
TechActive science and
math Classrooms of
Tomorrow that provide
touch-screen comput-
ers, digital microscopes
and cameras and other
powerful technologies
to help students learn
through investigation


and discovery.
The COT environment
is structured but allows
students to move around,
interact and engage in
real-world activities to
immerse themselves in
thinking about science
and math. Teams of stu-
dents learn how to learn
by thinking deeply and
solving problems, gather-
ing information and data,
analyzing and reaching
their own conclusions
and producing products.
Other important
components of the STEM
initiative funded by
GCCF include graphing
calculators for middle-
and high-school class-
rooms and professional
development opportuni-
ties that allow teachers
to work collaboratively


to develop lessons that
enhance student learn-
ing in math and science.
In each district high
school, Technology
Enhanced Active
Learning labs are being
installed to emphasize
collaboration and instant
access to information and
educational resources.
As always, the district
welcomes volunteers and
business partners. More
than 10,000 students,
parents, community
members and business
leaders participate in the
district's PALS Partners
in Education volunteer
program. Volunteers,
who act as reading tutors
and mentors to students
and help schools in
many other ways provide
about 264,000 hours of


service each year, with
an estimated value of
$5.7 million. Anyone inter-
ested in learning more
about volunteering in the
Sarasota County Schools
can call the PALS office at
941-927-9000, ext. 31500.
In January, SCSD
was rated fourth high-
est among Florida's
67 districts in student
achievement measured
by FCAT test results.
Sarasota County is one
of 17 "A" school districts
in the state. Ninety-five
percent of the district's
traditional and charter
elementary and middle
schools (37 of 38 schools)
received A or B grades for
the 2011-12 school year.
High school grades will
be announced later this
year.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

SA J 7 V K 1093 0 A J 9 6248


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 16

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A A bid of two hearts now would be
a reverse, showing extra strength.
Since you have a minimum opener,
all you can do for the moment is raise
to two spades and see how partner
reacts.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

S8 AJ863 0 K K74QJ 743

As dealer, what action do you take?

A Pass! You have no good rebid
over partner's expected one-spade
response. To bid two-clubs with such
a shabby suit asks for trouble and to
bid one no trump with a weak
singleton, even though partner has
responded in the suit, misdescribes
your holding.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4J83 QA98620 94,4J 76


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Pass 1
14 Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A Partner's one-spade rebid was not
forcing, so take advantage of this to
tell partner you have a mediocre hand
- pass!

Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6AQ93C2 K J50 74A9643


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 16

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A With 14 high-card points, a
singleton and no wasted values, your
hand is worth more like 18 points
than its high-card points suggest.
Jump raise to three spades.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4Q762 ?AQ740 64,AKJ6


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 16

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A In support of spades your hand is
worth about 19 points. Tell partner
the good news by making a splinter
bid in your short suit. Jump to three
diamonds!

Q 6 East-West vulnerable, as South.
you hold:

6- Q8540 AQ 52 4AQ 873


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
16 Pass 1Y
9
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A A jump to three spades would
show a singleton and a strong hand
- theoretically, to show a void you
need to jump to four spades.
However, that gets you to the five-
level. You have to tell a little white lie
and treat your void as a singleton -
jump to three spades.

"Can we continue to volun-

several students asked Ingrid

Lauren Reschenthaler came
to the party late and in her
cheerleader uniform. She had
already participated in fresh-

school. Several students left
early for work.
Venice is fortunate to have
programs like the student

an honor to meet them and


experience their magic.

most popular fabric artists and

time this summer volunteering
at Venice Regional Medical

are dedicated, serious and
crazy enough to make being

your heart sing.
It is a joy to know they are

Back to school

f you ever thought about being on stage, this is your chance.
Theater arts classes are popping up on the Cultural Coast for
every level and interest.
Class brochures have been arriving daily from the likes of
PLATO, the not-for-profit performing arts arm of the Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre, Florida Studio Theatre, The Players of Sarasota
and Venice Theatre, to cite a few.
PLATO offers classes in auditioning from such luminaries as for-
mer Broadway star Roberta Turoff. FST and The Players will teach
you everything from playwriting to improve no matter what your age
or experience level.
Venice Theatre, the nation's third largest community
theater, is the only one in the Southeast U.S. to offer a
professional level theater tech course. Its education and outreach
department not only offers a variety of theater classes for pre-K
students to adults, but this year is bringing international circus per-
formers Caio Stolai and Milena Costa do Nascimento back to teach
clowning, puppetry and dance.
Caio stunned attendees to the 2010 International Community
Theatre Festival with his one-man show featuring his handmade
puppets and was brought back the next year for three sold-out
performances of his show about the circus career of an old man.
Milena is an artist on the silks in the circus world and also a dancer.
Both will teach courses in circus arts this fall.
Read Let's Go weekly for news of these and many other class
opportunities and then, as they say backstage break a leg!

Scattered uses projection technology to create a world in
which the dancers move in, on and through the image.
Scattered delves into the majesty and savagery of water,
a fundamental force in our lives as dancers plunge into
an ocean, tumble down a waterfall, and slide on an
avalanche to a frozen landscape. In Scattered Motionhouse
is creating a startling interaction between film and live
performance, where dancers glide in the air or rapidly
move around the space using aerial silks and harnesses.

Naples Botanical Garden brings Asia to SW Florida


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Agarden-lover's alternative to a lengthy
flight to Southeast Asia, South America
or North Africa is a short road trip to the
Naples Botanical Garden.
Located just a short drive from downtown
Naples, the garden was expanded about four
years ago to include gardens similar to ones
found in Thailand, Brazil, India, Bali, Java and
throughout the Caribbean.
My first visit to the garden was shortly after
my move to Florida and its birth in 1993. Since a
major expansion about four years ago, the Gar-
dens' footprint is more than 10 times larger and
it is well on its way to becoming the world-class
botanical garden envisioned by its eight founders,
all residents of Naples.
In its first incarnation, it was a place of beauty
which I enjoyed every bit as much as a visit to Ma-
rie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. Today's
expanded layout features a children's garden;
butterfly house; Brazilian Garden; water garden;
Asian Garden that includes a Balinese Shrine,
Thai Pavilion, Javanese ruin and Asia pergola;
Caribbean Garden; river of grass as a representa-
tion of the Everglades; wetlands preserve; uplands
preserve; Florida Garden; and an enabling garden
which features ways to adapt a garden for those
with physical challenges. According to the web
site, there are 2.5 miles of walking trails and 90
acres of restored native preserve lands.
Summer is a good time to visit because it is
less crowded but get there early. Naples is warm-
er and more humid than most areas covered by
Sun newspapers. I was there first thing in the
morning on a day made gray by the proximity of
Tropical Storm Debby which was making its way
up the Gulf of Mexico. I was able to see about
60 percent of the site before the skies opened.
I need to return to see the Florida Garden, Sol-
stice Landing and the Uplands Preserve. I also
need to return to spend more time in the Asian
Garden which I walked through at breakneck
speed in order to see it before the sky opened.
Fortunately I had spent the night at the Inn of
Fifth in downtown Naples so I had a safe haven in
which to wait out the storm before driving back to
Venice after visiting the garden. Returning to the
inn also is on my list for sometime this fall when
the weather cools down a bit and the winter tour-
ists have yet to arrive.
Because the garden is a work in progress, I
envision many more trips as buildings, rainwater
collection tanks and more garden areas sprout
on the site. Another reason for multiple visits is
the seasonal changes of flower- and fruit-bearing
plants. On this visit, I spied several pineapples,
a couple of watermelons and several banana
bunches which should ripen over the next few
weeks.
Because of the overall plan of the garden, it is
a great destination for an hour's visit or a half-day

The Caladium Capital of the World


BY NORMA RIZER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
T he sun blazes, scorching all it touches.
The humidity produces excess drips. There
is no doubt it's summer in Florida. What
decent Florida town plans a festival in August to
attract thousands of visitors? Better still, what
would make people attend an outdoor festival
during this time of year?
The answer to the first question is Lake Placid.
To the second, a plant. Both of these answers
might seem a bit odd until you look a little closer,
or better still, drive a bit to the center of the state
for a unique festival.
A little off the beaten track, Lake Placid has
celebrated caladiums every August for the past
21 years. Visitors might be a little fuzzy about
what a caladium is when they arrive in town, but
it's guaranteed by the time they leave, they will be
able to spot caladiums wherever they see them.
For those who don't know, a caladium is a
showy plant with large, colorful leaves. They are
used as landscape accents throughout the world.
The reason Lake Placid celebrates caladiums
is it has been known for many years as "The
Caladium Capital of the World." Up to 95 percent
of all caladiums in nurseries and garden centers
originate in Lake Placid.
This year, the festival begins on Friday and
continues Saturday and Sunday Thousands of
people and thousands of caladium plants and
bulbs come together for the festival that features
art, entertainment, food, clowns, history and even
classic and muscle cars. This festival has all the
makings of a great event and visitors enjoy every
bit of it.
Of course, one of the first things visitors want
to do is see caladiums; the best way to do this
is to take a bus tour. It's best to pre-register to
be assured a seat, but sometimes seats are still
open during the festival. Stop by the Lake Placid
Women's Club, downtown on North Main Avenue
to catch a bus. Tour buses are staffed by local
growers. The 90-minute trip provides a glimpse
of expansive caladium fields, colorfully filled with
red, pink, green and white plants. The town and
its residents go all out to showcase the plants
and bus tours will also let visitors see how the
plants are used in residential and commercial
landscaping. The growers are happy to give any
information, from growing instructions to pest
control.
Those hungry for more information about
caladiums can view a free 14-minute video about
the industry at the Greater Lake Placid Chamber
of Commerce, located on North Oak Avenue. The
video is shown in the Mural Room, named for the
original art for the 44 larger-than-life murals on
town buildings. Of course, one of those murals


features caladiums.
The main part of the Caladium Festival is held
in the downtown area in Stuart Park. It's there
you'll find a myriad of caladium plants in all their
beauty. Leaves come in two varieties fancy
leaves (heart shaped) and lance leaves (more
pointed). Visitors will discover colors ranging
from brilliant to soft in reds, pinks and whites,
with many combinations of colors. Bulbs are
also available and might be easier to transport,
if distance or time is a factor. Sales of plants or
bulbs come with full instructions.
Stuart Park is also the setting for Caladium
Festival entertainment. And lots of entertainment
will be showcased. Three full days of talented
singers, dancers, musicians and local cheerlead-
ers is on tap.
All along the streets adjacent to the park,
vendors offer arts and crafts -- many featuring
caladiums in theme. Jewelry, ceramics, yard
art...from the exotic to the mundane, all things
caladium can be found here. Don't miss the
information booth where maps of the festival
posters and T-shirts featuring the annual artwork
can be found.
Each year, local artists enter caladium art to
vie for the chance to be chosen as the "official"
Caladium Festival artwork for the upcoming year.
Entered artwork can be found at the Caladium
Arts and Crafts Cooperative, a local retail store
featuring all types of arts and crafts from area
artists. Floral arrangements featuring the ever-
present plant can also be found here. In addition
to being an arts and crafts mecca, the Caladium
Arts and Crafts Cooperative offers an air condi-
tioned sanctuary for heat-weary festival fans.
Just down the street from the Caladium Co-op
is DeVane Park. On Saturday, the park will be
filled with classic cars and motorcycles for the
area's largest car show, billed as one of the
premier summertime car shows in the southeast.
On Sunday, the park will host a new event; a
recreational show will feature boats, personal
watercraft and paintball, scuba and paddle board-
ing equipment.
There is no doubt this is an event supported
by the entire town. Service clubs, fraternal
organizations and churches bring taste treats to
the festival. There are enough different foods to
provide a different nibble for every hour of the
festival. Popcorn, or course, but there will also
be barbecued chicken, fried fish, funnel cakes,
strawberry shortcake, hamburgers, alligator, and
all sorts of drinks near the north end of Stuart
Park. These non-profit groups use this revenue to
support their various missions.
A visit to Lake Placid during the Caladium
Festival might convince guests the vast majority
of industry is devoted to caladiums, but actually,

The Historic Venice Train Depot


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When the original train stop was built in
Venice at the end of Tampa Avenue
in 1911, the town was in its fledgling
stages.
That year, Chicago socialite Bertha Honore
Palmer had implored the Seaboard Air Line
Railway to extend its tracks to Venice because
she had bought thousands of acres on Little
Sarasota Bay in order to establish a winter
home there. The longer train track would enable
her to more easily receive goods, services and
visitors.
Thanks to Palmer, by 1925 the town of Venice
was poised for growth, and construction began
on the new Venice Train Depot.
"The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,
BLE, took over," said Sue Chapman, president
of the Venice Area Historical Society. "They were
here to develop the city and sell property to
buyers. The new depot was a reception center for
prospective buyers."
The new structure, designed by the New York
City architectural firm of Walker and Gillette, took
about two years to build. Its Mediterranean Re-
vival design was created by renowned architect
John Nolen, who also planned the city of Venice
in the same style.
For decades it stood as a port of entry for
visitors, cadets of the Kentucky Military Institute,
employees of the Army Airbase and then for the
Ringling Circus workers and their families. But by
the late 1900s, the depot had fallen into disrepair
and needed someone to help save it.
"It was derelict, had graffiti and holes in
the roof, and had been vandalized," Chapman


said. "Rollins Coakley, a member of the historical
society, knew it was historic and had to
be saved."
Though the planning of the restoration took
a couple of years, the renovations themselves
took only one year and were completed in
2003. Wherever possible, the original architec-
tural features were preserved, and those that
were not in good enough shape to save were
replicated right down to the original paint
colors.
"When this depot was built in 1927, it cost
$24,000 ($299,000 in today's money)," Chapman
said. "It cost $2.3 million to restore in 2003'"
As part of the restoration, another 40 feet were
added on the southern part of the building to
accommodate a SCAT bus system hub. The
Rollins W. Coakley Railroad Park was cre-
ated with benches and tables for picnics and a
Gunther Gebel-Williams statue was set at the
entrance to the park.
In addition, a red caboose was donated by
CSX transportation, renovated and placed beside
the building to serve as the Venice Area Historical
Society's office, since they are the "Keepers of
the Depot"
The Keepers conduct many tours of the depot
- this summer, the hours are Saturdays from
10 a.m. until 1 p.m., but during winter, the
tours also run from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday,
Wednesday and Friday.
The Historic Venice Train Depot is located at
303 E. Venice Ave., next to where the Venetian
Waterway Park and the Legacy Trail meet.
To find about more about the depot,
contact the Venice Area Historical Society at
941-412-0151.

Little band promises loads of fun


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Englewood's Annual Pioneer Days, always
a fantastic tribute to the founders and
families that made Englewood great, just
gets better every year. This year's theme, "Hats
Off to Englewood," honors the early pioneers,
and the two-week festival also features an array
of new programs and unique floats. One new
event, a patriotic singalong, led by guitarist/banjo
player Linda Lou Lewis and the Little Band of
Writers, will kick off the celebration on Tuesday at
the historic Green Street Church located in Olde
Englewood Village.
The public is invited to join seven writers and
musicians on an imaginary train ride as they sing
their way across America. An original tune written
by Lewis entitled "We are the Band" will introduce
the group to the audience. That will be followed
by the energetic Lewis and the band singing the
praises of their "coastal paradise" Englewood.
For the remainder of the program the audience
will be encouraged to join in the fun. Attendees
will be treated to arrangements of traditional and
original melodies, accompanied by both conven-
tional and unconventional instruments.
Joann Phillips, famous for adding "hutspah" is
proud of her 68-cent washboard. "It ain't no store-
bought instrument," she exclaimed. Her husband,
Don, fashioned the board with bells, whistles and
squeaks, but Joann often adds a kazoo, puppets,
a tambourine or a "jug" to the mix.
Marion Sheridan specializes in bongo drums
and novelty songs. Spoon player and percussion-
ist Cheryl Baker composed "The Whip-Poor-Will,"
a song that describes her childhood memories
of summer in New Hampshire. Composer Gaile

Little Band members practice patriotic tunes for their Pioneer Days singalong in Englewood.
Marion Sheridan, bongos; Cheryl Baker, spoons; Joann Phillips, washboard; Murray Davis,
clarinet; Linda Lou Lewis, banjo; and Leroy Sexton, guitar.


Director and song writer Linda Lou Lewis, on
guitar, sings her original composition 'WNe are
the Band,"' accompanied by Gaile Harpan on
piano.

Harpan, a writer of children's stories, who retired
after a long teaching career, plays the piano for
the group. Guitarist Leroy Sexton took up playing
the guitar and composing music only a few years
ago. An original ballad describing his native
Indiana has a country/gospel vibe. Musician and


former Peace Corps volunteer Murray Davis
provides professional clarinet and harmonica
accompaniment for all 24 tunes.
Organized 5 years ago, the Little Band of Writ-
ers, a sub group of Englewood's popular Suncoast
Writers Guild, performs for friends at the Guild,
local nursing homes, local restaurant events and
productions of the Lemon Bay Historical Society.
Director Lewis is quick to point out, "Our only
goal is fun. Our show on Aug. 28 will feature
songs about places in this great country. We'll
celebrate where we came from and why we love


it here in Englewood. There will be printed song
sheets (words only) so everyone can sing along,
and people who want to 'sit in' with an instrument
will be welcome to join us. Real, live, homemade
music is alive and well in Englewood."
The patriotic show is offered free to the
public, but donations will be accepted. Proceeds
benefit the Lemon Bay Historical Society and The
Suncoast Writers Guild.
The Pioneer Days fun begins at 7 p.m. at
the Green Street Church, 416W. Green St.,
Englewood.

Chef John Rathgeber


Prime Time Steak & Spirits


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When Prime Time Steak & Spirits' owner
Mike Brady bought his restaurant 13
years ago, he had discovered some-
thing almost as important as how to deliver great
food-that the restaurant business is based on
something deeper.
"This business isn't all about the food," Brady
said. "It's about the personal relationships you
develop."
That attitude from the owner is why Prime
Time has become one of the most popular
restaurants in Englewood. Out on Placida
Road, about five miles from Boca Grande, the
restaurant has established itself as not just a
tourist destination but a place where year-round
residents love to congregate.
'We pride ourselves on being a neighbor-
hood restaurant, and we depend on the locals,"
Brady said. "It's really like a private-club type of
atmosphere here."
Brady's desire to provide the best possible
product to his Englewood neighbors is why when
he was looking for a new chef last month. He
chose John Rathgeber, a chef formerly from
the Boca Bay Pass Club and Marina Jack's in
Sarasota.
"Our former chef passed away last year and
he had been here for eight years," Brady said. "By


hiring John, we're heading back to greatness."
Chef John says that his being hired at Prime
Time was a great fit, as well as a matter of fortu-
itous circumstances.
"It was all about the timing," he said. "The
restaurant I was working at closed down, and he
(Brady) was looking for someone."
What Chef John brings to the table is not only
a wealth of experience, but also a genuine pas-
sion for the job. He said that he had always loved
to cook, and even as a child in NewYork City, he
wanted to be in the kitchen helping his mother.
However, he made a few stops along the way on
the path to being a chef.
"Growing up in the '80s, it wasn't cool to be a
man and be a chef," he said. "But at the end of
the day, I went to culinary school after the army
and went back to the kitchen."
He says that his lifelong love of food and cook-
ing is why he enjoys being a chef.
"You take a raw ingredient and put out a
product that makes people happy," he said. "I love
putting a smile on someone's face."
Brady said that when they can, he and Chef
John like to get out on the dining room floor and
talk with the diners. That gives them the oppor-
tunity to see just how much people are enjoying
the food.

fied Angus Beef prime rib, which is cooked for

Baby alligators are popping out all over


PROVIDED BY GATORAMA

Do your children think education is bor-
ing? "It definitely does not have to be,"
say Allen and Patty Register, owners of
Gatorama. It is the time of year that chirping,
grunting and snapping baby alligators emerge
from their shells to meet the world. Gatorama is
marking this occasion by hosting an "Alligator
Hatching Festival" through Monday at their animal
park at 6180 U.S. Highway 27, Palmdale.
"This is a great opportunity for parents to teach
their children about one of nature's fascinating
life cycles," says Allen Register. "For the next two
weeks we will welcome over 3,000 alligators into
the world at Gatorama. Guests will actually be
able to see these little baby alligators wiggle out
of the eggs."
Visitors to Gatorama will also be able to learn
about the history of the American alligator and
how the populations have been protected through
one of the most successful, sustainable-use man-
agement programs ever implemented. American
alligators have been off the endangered species
list since 1987 and populations are still grow-
ing. Alligator farming is an important part of the


program.
There will be four programs Monday through
Sunday. Regular admission is $14.95. Children
less than five feet tall are admitted for $6.95. Reg-
ular admission includes the educational hatching
program. For guests that want a hands-on experi-
ence, a "Hatch and Hold" package is available.
This package allows the guest to actually hold
an egg and let the baby alligator hatch in their
hands. The cost for this experience is $10.00. We
offer 15 prepaid reservations per program.Then
depending on how many eggs are hatching that
particular day we will offer another 20-30 eggs
per program on a first come first served basis.
"This isn't a drive-through instant experience."We
are totally dependent on Mother Nature," says
Allen. Birthing babies takes time. If everyone is
patient we usually can accommodate everyone
by the end of the day.This year we will be offering
new activities for kids to build their own gator
tooth necklace or catch their own baby gators at
the Baby Gator Round Up "pond"- bring your
cameras! Outside food and add on experiences
require cash. The gift shop still accepts credit
cards or cash.
Gatorama opened in 1957 as one of Florida's

first alligator attractions. It is still a popular tourist
attraction as well as an operating alligator farm.
One of Gatorama's main attractions for visitors
and professional photographers is the natural
Florida scenery in which these prehistoric beasts
sunbathe in the warm subtropical climate.
Visitors will also find other animals along the
covered 1,000 foot walkway and wooden bridge:


panthers, bobcats, raccoons, peacocks,
ducks and geese all call Gatorama home,
as do six species of crocodiles including the
American crocodile. Gatorama is the largest
captive breeder in North America of the Acutus
crocodile.

863-675-0623 or visit www.Gatorama.com.


Beachfront homestead tour featured for Pioneer Days


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
On Aug. 26 the public is invited to tour
The Hermitage, the oldest house on N.
Manasota Key. Built in 1907 by Swedish
immigrant Carl G. Johanson, the beachfront prop-
erty is among the oldest structures in Sarasota
County and is listed in the national, state and
county registers of historic places.
The Open House is part of Englewood's 2012
Pioneer Days celebration. Visitors will learn how
this beautifully renovated artist retreat evolved
over the past 100 years. According to their
website, www.hermitageartistreatreat.org., the
property, in addition to being a home, also served
as an inn, restaurant, motel and nudist colony.
Nobody really knows exactly how the Hermitage
got its name, although when it was operated as
a business, a brochure described it as "The Sea
Island Sanctuary at the 'ole' Hermitage." In 1947,
Otto Thurston Alexander bought the Hermitage
along with adjoining property and structures.
By the 1980s a number of concerned Engle-
wood-area residents became worried when they
heard of Sarasota County's plans to destroy the
decaying buildings and add a parking lot for the
public beach. With considerable effort, the group
convinced the county that the beach property
was worth saving. When the Sarasota County
Arts Council led by Patricia Caswell eventually
took over, it was decided to transform the build-
ings to their original "old Florida rustic elegance."
The original homestead and four adjoining
historic buildings have been lovingly restored
into living and studio space known today as the
Hermitage Artist Retreat. The council created a
wide-ranging comprehensive community cultural

plan that would serve individual artists. Accord-
ing to Executive Director Bruce E. Rodgers, "The
Hermitage started its first State Teachers' Artist
Residency program in 2011. STAR is a gift of time
and space to Florida arts educators who want
to spend time in our beautiful setting just being
artists."
In July, five artists were selected to enjoy a
four-week residency where they could write,
paint, sculpt or compose. On Aug. 10 the public
was invited to view the creations of two artists
in their studios, then move on to three beach
readings. Due to rain, however, the readings


took place indoors. During the program Rodgers
explained that in addition to the STAR program,
the Hermitage brings accomplished painters,
sculptors, writers, playwrights, poets and com-
posers from all over the world for extended stays
at its 8.5-acre campus. Each artist is asked to
contribute two services to the community during
that time. In 2003, Scottish artist-in- residence
Malcolm Robertson designed a prominent shell
sculpture for the Englewood Beach roundabout.
Additional examples of artists' works may be
viewed during the open house and docent tours
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.The Hermitage

Kayak for adventure and education


BY JOHN BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It's rare to find an experience that combines
mystery and excitement in an environmental
learning experience, but that's exactly what
O-Sea-D Aquatic Adventures offers.
Located south of downtown Punta Gorda, 0-
Sea-D Aquatic Adventures offers kayak trips that
can feature alligators, manatees and an abun-
dance of birds. Their Manatee Adventure Tour
is very popular during the cool weather months,
when manatees gather in pockets of warm water.
During the tour, manatees will glide right under
the kayak because of their curious nature.
"While we never guarantee that we'll see
wildlife on any of our tours, we wouldn't advertise
it as a manatee tour if we didn't have a high
success rate," said owner Vince Molnar. 'They're
a little more difficult to find in the summer, just
because they don't congregate as much."
Molnar's operation includes everything related
to kayaks, including sales, rentals and lessons. 0-
Sea-D also offers fishing and diving possibilities
using kayaks. "We're one of the largest Emotion

kayak dealers in this area, but if anybody asks
me what I want my business to be known for, it's
not for being the number one dealer of anything.
It's to be the number one ecotourism facility in
the state," said Molnar. "My goal as the owner of
this business is to instill a sense of environmental
awareness and protection, a sense of duty in my
customers. Ultimately it's our ecotourism aspect
of the business that drives our retail."
Molnar's credentials include being a marine
fisheries biologist for Florida Wildlife, certi-
fied scuba diver and environmental writer for a
regional magazine. He is considered an expert in
the environmental world.
He opened his tour and lesson business just
out of college in May of 2010, while the retail
piece opened in March of 2011. For newcomers
to the sport of kayaking, O-Sea-D's staff reviews
every aspect of the learning experience.
'There are physical restrictions, as there is
with any sport, but we always make sure those
are known up front and then recommend, based
on people's age and their physical abilities, what
we think that they would enjoy or not enjoy," Mol-


nar said. He also explained why he doesn't teach
couples on two seat kayaks at the start. "If you're
not happily married, then let's go for the tandem
kayak. If you're happily married and you want to
stay that way, we might want to refrain from that
for awhile and do two singles. If you put people in
situations that they're not used to being in, they
just kind of get a little nervous and edgy. That's
what I've found in the tandem kayaks, in that it's
better to get rid of that feeling first in a single, on
your own."

Molnar believes it's
their ecotourism
aspect of the busi-
h m ness that drives
their retail success.

Prices for most of their tours are in the $50 to
$60 range and last approximately 3 or 4 hours.
"In my opinion, we are the best at what we do,"
Molnar explained. "We teach people about the
environment in a fun way."
O-Sea-D Aquatic Adventures, located at 3853
Acline Road, Punta Gorda, has tours for every-
one, young and old, that are fun, educational and
entertaining.

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


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


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


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


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

Opening lead: King of 46

Communications between dummy
and the closed hand are the lifeblood
of many contracts. Defeating these
hands depends on the ability of the
defenders to cut the artery.
With a spade suit that could play
opposite a singleton and the queen in
partner's suit that should be upgraded
in value, South's hand was worth a
jump rebid. North clearly had enough
to proceed to the major-suit game.
West started with the king and ace


of clubs, East following with the
three and ten to show an odd number
of cards in the suit. Obviously, East
was broke, so West realized that no
help could be expected from that
quarter. Therefore, the kings in both
major suits would have to score if the
contract was to be defeated.
The king of trumps was a sure
defensive trick. The king of hearts
was another matter the diamond
suit would surely furnish declarer
with enough discards to take care of
any losers. The only hope for the
defense lay in cutting declarer's link
to the diamonds before the suit could
be put to use.
At trick three West shifted to a dia-
mond. Declarer won with the king
and led a trump to the knave. West
won and persisted with a diamond,
and declarer was forced to bow the
knee. Since an attempt to get two
heart discards on dummy's diamonds
while there was still a trump out-
standing was clearly against the odds,
declarer won in dummy, cashed the
ten of spades and tried the heart
finesse by leading the queen down
one!

How to tell melanoma

from a common mole


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Every summer, we rent
a cottage for two weeks.
This summer is the
first time I have seen
three black spots on my
17-year-old son's back-
moles, I think. My imagi-
nation took off. Could
these be melanomas? You
hear so much about them
these days. Should I take
him to a dermatologist
right away? I can't find
any understandable
information that tells how
to distinguish moles from
melanoma. -W.B.
ANSWER: The official
name for moles is nevii."
If you brought a comput-
er to your cottage, you'll
find more information
than you want by search-
ing nevii."
The common mole,
also called an acquired
mole (one not present at
birth), is a nest of cells
containing the black
pigment melanin. Such
moles arise during child-
hood and the young-adult
years. Around age 30, new
mole formation tapers
off, and older moles begin
to regress. Common
moles, which are what
I think your son has, do
not become melanomas.
They measure less than
6 millimeters in diameter,
about the size of a pen-
cil's eraser. They have a
well-demarcated border.
They're symmetrical,
meaning by folding them
over in your mind, you
can fit each half of the
mole over the other half.
Moles have a uniform
brown or black color.
Melanomas, on the other
hand, have a variety of
colors reds, tans, blues
and grays interspersed
on their dark surface. A
melanoma evolves it
changes appearances
somewhat, and almost
always enlarges.
A born-with mole is
one that's been present
from birth. It has a small
potential for becoming a
melanoma. Regardless of
how small the chance is,
this kind of mole needs to
be observed frequently by
both a child's parents and
the child's doctor.
A third mole variety
is an atypical mole, also
called a dysplastic mole.
It varies in size from
5 millimeters (0.2 inches)
to 12 millimeters (0.5
inches) in diameter.
Its colors are a mix of
browns, pinks and tans.
It erupts mostly on the
back and has an irregular
shape and an ill-defined
border, something that
raises suspicion for a
melanoma. If the doctor
oon


is not sure of its nature, a
biopsy is done.
If all these colors,
shapes and measure-
ments are too much, let
your family doctor or a
dermatologist make the
call.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My PSA (prostate specific
antigen) result was high,
so my family doctor made
an appointment for me
at a urologist's office. I'm
nervous about the biopsy.
How is it done? Does it
hurt? How long does it
take to recover? B.K.
ANSWER: A prostate bi-
opsy isn't a picnic, but it's
not the worst thing that
has happened to you. An
ultrasound device locates
the prostate's suspicious
areas. Then the doctor
inserts, through the rec-
tum, an instrument with
the inauspicious name
"gun." The doctor triggers
the device and a series of
very fine needles obtain
specimens for micro-
scopic exam. The whole
procedure takes about 10
to 15 minutes. Most men
are active the next day.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My doctor suggested
I snack on carrots for
weight loss. He tells all
his patients that carrot
munching curbs hunger.
I took him up on this,
but I might have gone a
trifle overboard. My skin
has turned yellow. My
husband finds this funny.
I don't. Does it do any
damage? Will it go away?
- M.O.
ANSWER: That skin col-
or is called "carotenemia."
It's not going to hurt you.
It will go away if you cut
back on carrot snacks.
You'll get rid of it faster if
you stop them altogether
for a time.
You and your husband
might notice it, but many
do not. I'll bet few other
people have remarked
about it to you.
Beta carotene is the
substance in carrots that
causes the color change.
The body transforms it
into vitamin A. You don't
develop any consequenc-
es from the color change.
You are not getting too
much vitamin A. The
body stops the conver-
sion if you're getting an
overload of the vitamin.

Foil those bristles!


Dear Heloise: After read-
ing in your column about
people swallowing bristles
off wire brushes used to
clean grill grates, I would
like to share my solution.
I keep all used aluminum
foil. If it has any food on
it, I wipe it off, wad it up
into a ball, and it cleans
the grill grate like magic. I
keep an empty flowerpot
by my grill with balls of
foil for cleaning. Shirley
B., Humble, Texas
Yes, I've printed many
times through the years to
use caution when cleaning
with a wire brush. If you feel
you must use one, please be
sure to wipe off the grates
with a damp paper towel
to remove any small pieces
of wire that may be left
behind. Heloise

Refrigerator hints
Dear Readers: What's
in your refrigerator? How
often is the door opened?
Does it work the way it
should? Here are some
hints from the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration
to make sure your
refrigerator is working at
its best for you:
Don't overpack the
refrigerator. The cold air
must move around the
items to keep them cool.
Keep spills cleaned
up. Drips, especially from
meat products, can cause
cross-contamination with
other foods. Keep them
cleaned up!
Check expiration
dates. Regularly clean out
your refrigerator, throw-
ing out foods that have


Hints from Heloise

expired or gone bad.
Keep all foods covered.
Whether in storage bags
or containers, keep all
food items covered when
stored in refrigerator.
Keep track of tem-
perature. An inexpensive
thermometer kept in
the refrigerator will keep
you aware of the actual
temperature 40 degrees
F or lower is best.
For more informa-
tion, visit the website
at www.fda.gov or call
888-SAFEFOOD (723-
3366). Be patient, as there
are prompts you must go
through to reach some-
one. Heloise

Deep frying
Dear Heloise: I have an
electric deep fryer that I use
when entertaining large
crowds. I place a layer of
newspapers over my kitchen
island and then place the
fryer in the center so there
is no fear of it falling. The
newspapers are perfect for
catching any oil that spills,
and are absorbent enough
to keep splatters to a mini-
mum. Just throw away the
papers when done. S.D.,
via email

DEAR ABBY: My friend
was at a local event, a
child's graduation. There
was a woman whose rear
end was exposed sitting
in the row ahead. Several
people took pictures
and posted them on
Facebook.
My concern is for the
woman's family. My
friend couldn't think of
an easy way to tell her.
My question is, how do
you tactfully tell someone
about her (or his) exposed
buttocks without offend-
ing the person? JUST
ASKING IN ILLINOIS
DEAR JUST ASKING:
The person who designed
low-rise pants for women,
frankly, should be taken
to the stocks for public
punishment. They flatter
no one, particularly when
the wearer bends or sits.
If it's not the flesh drop-
ping over the waistband,
it's the Great Rift Valley
visible from the rear.
Robert Burns, a Scottish
poet, wrote in 1786 (I
am paraphrasing) that if
some power would give
us the gift to see ourselves
as others see us, it would
free us from "many a
blunder"! How right he
was.
Had your friend in-
formed the woman in the
row ahead that her pants
had slipped so low that
people were photograph-
ing the view, she probably
would have been less of-
fended than embarrassed.
The message should have
been conveyed quietly by
another woman if one felt
enough compassion to
do it.
DEAR ABBY: I was
married for 22 years. My
husband was verbally,
mentally and emotionally
abusive to me. I took it for
my kids' sake.
My daughter recently
had a son, and my ex
wants nothing to do with
him. He says if we don't
name the baby after him,
the baby doesn't need him

for my grandson. My

baby's daddy. All the baby

Dear Abby

want to be a part of an
innocent baby's life.
My ex is 45 and living
with a 23-year-old. I just
want him to at least give
the baby a chance to
know who his grandfather
is. If there is no love there
when they meet, we won't
pursue a relationship.
He is upset with me. I
don't know why, because
he's the one who asked
for the divorce. What do
you think about this? -
CONFUSED IN PHOENIX
DEAR CONFUSED:
Your ex-husband may be
upset with you because
he feels some guilt about
the divorce, and rather
than accept it, he is blam-
ing you for it.
If you think this baby
might somehow smooth
over the years of abuse
you experienced from
him, please forget it. It is
perfectly logical that your
daughter wouldn't want
to name her child for him
after witnessing what he
put you through for so
many years so please
don't let her be coerced
into it.
Because your ex is the
kind of person he is, it
would be better for all of
you if the little boy doesn't
get to know him. You
married a self-centered,
selfish, controlling indi-
vidual. Consider yourself
lucky that he's not
pushing for involvement,
because if that happens
he will continue to treat
all of you exactly the way
he used to.

for God's servants and if they are at fault God will deal
with them.
