LOCAL NEWS COVER TO COVER FLORIDA'S NO.1 WEEKLY NEWSPAPER


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Venice City Council
hit a snag Tuesday, so
it agreed to hold up
a controversial dock-
permitting ordinance
after Sarasota County
raised concerns over
how to transition prior
applicants.
The ordinance allows
the city to assume
responsibility for issu-
ing dock permits from
Sarasota County.
City Manager Ed
Lavallee tried to
work through a list
of 38 recommended
changes with County
Administrator Randall
Reid and his staff but
wasn't able to do so on
short notice. Council
agreed to give staff
until Sept. 11 to finalize
changes.
If they aren't consid-
ered substantial, the
draft ordinance can
again be placed on final
reading at that time.
Council considered
pushing through the ordi-
nance, but City Attorney
Bob Anderson cautioned
that could cause legal
hurdles later on.
"The notion of adopt-
ing an ordinance with
deficiencies to amend


later is not a good
idea," Anderson said.
"If you enact this and
in two weeks we get a
couple applicants, they
won't be subject to the
amendments you may
or may not adopt in two
months. They need to
be addressed before you
put it in place because
anybody who makes
application will be
subject to the regulatory
scheme in place at that
time."
Some of the recom-
mended changes are
typographical errors,
while others attempt
to address transitional
elements, which staff
admitted they missed.
Council Member Bob
Daniels said he was
frustrated by the delay,
and said staff will end
up starting anew on the
ordinance.
"I think we are getting
involved in a political
issue," he said. "They
were asked to try to get
this problem resolved"
five years ago. "And we
are going to walk away
with nothing. Thirty-
eight changes means a
complete rewrite in my
opinion."

Warman is new


fire chief


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
The Venice City
Council confirmed
James A. Warman, 48,
as its new fire chief at
Tuesday's meeting.
A 28-year fire service
veteran, Warman
currently serves as the
Largo Fire Department
deputy chief.
He was surprised
earlier in the day when
Largo Fire Department's
top brass made the trip
to Venice to join him in
the audience in a show
of support.
"I'm very impressed
and pleased Mr.
Warman accepted,"
said City Manager Ed
Lavallee, who selected
Warman from among
84 candidates with
the help of a local
committee.
"Deputy ChiefWarman
is a highly ethical and
moral person," Lavallee
said, noting his strong

family
values.
"He's well
versed in all
aspects of
fire science,
and has all
the attri-
butes that WARMAN
make for
a good leadership team.
He's done his homework."
Warman said he looks
forward to joining the
Venice "family" and
thanked council and
Lavallee for providing
the opportunity.
He's currently second-
in-command at the
Largo Fire Department,
with 142 staff members
and six stations, the
third-largest depart-
ment in Pinellas County.
He'll face a depart-
ment still searching for
funds to retain staff, and
a council determined
to rein in a burgeoning
pension problem.

County assesses Isaac damage


SUN PHOTO BY TAMI GARCIA, tgarcia@sun-herald.com
Rain from Isaac has inundated the Myakka River, threatening the homes that abut the waterway.

Emergency officials concerned with flooding


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Water levels at area
beaches ran 1 to 3 feet
above normal and flood-
ing from the Myakka
River concerned Sarasota
County Emergency
Management officials
Tuesday as they began to
assess damage from the
area's brush with Tropical


Storm Isaac.
Locally, the city of
Venice reported minor
impacts.
"This city is well-pro-
tected," said City Manager
Ed Lavallee. "It turned out
not as demanding as it
could have been. As far as
preparedness, you are in
good hands."
Lavallee said he'll pro-
vide a formal summary of


the city's responses next
week. The only weakness
he found was the Code
Red telephone system
needs updating.
"I felt if anything was go-
ing to happen, we definitely
had control," said Council
Member Bob Daniels of the
city's response. "I didn't see
any flaws."'
Area beaches hit hard
with erosion from Tropical


Storm Debby in June have
been suffering again due
to storm surge and wave
action. Water has breached
seawalls on Manasota
Key and flooded roads.
Officials placed lighted
barricades on the road-
ways to warn drivers.

will remain in effect until

SCAT may have been 'SWATed'


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office has ques-
tioned a possible suspect
in connection to a bomb
threat made Monday
morning regarding a SCAT
bus.
Around 9:15 a.m.,
the county government
switchboard received


a call from an undeter-
mined number, accord-
ing to an SCSO release.
The male caller said
authorities had 24 hours
to determine which SCAT
bus had a bomb on it,
then hung up.
Due to then-Tropical
Storm Isaac weather
closures, Sarasota County
Area Transit buses were


not running Monday.
"Investigators are still
trying to determine the
origin of the call, so no
official determination
can be made at this
time, if it fits the criteria
of a 'SWATing' call,"
Sheriff's Office spokes-
man Jeff Blossom said in
an email, referring to a
prank phone call made


to lure law enforcement
to a fake emergency
situation. "The call
was made to the main
county switchboard,
so it is slightly more
difficult to determine
the call's origin than if it
was made to our 911 call
center."


Flag of honor


Reservist Charles Mopps presented Mayor John Holic with a city
of Venice flag that flew over Bagram Airfield, one of the largest

Charles Mopps met Mayor
John Holic at the South

few years back. They're
part of the early morning
crowd that starts their
workout at 5 a.m. They
became friends.
While he was serving
overseas, Mopps got to
thinking: What about
flying a flag bearing the
city's emblem over the
heavily fortified Bagram
Airfield, one of the largest
military installations in
Afghanistan, and returning
it to the city?
He and the mayor
exchanged emails. It was

flew it on a special day -

insisted Mopps present it
in person.
After a year on duty,
Mopps presented the flag
to council on Tuesday to
a standing ovation.
"It was flown in the face
of the enemy," Mopps said.
Mopps even made the
frame for flag. They are
looking for a suitable loca-
tion to hang it at city hall.
A reservist for 20 years

Council to join amendment movement


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Venice City Council
voted 4-2 Tuesday to
support an amendment
to the U.S. Constitution
asserting that corpora-
tions are not people and
money is not speech.
Once its staff com-
pletes its own resolution
of support, council
will join a nationwide
groundswell of about 300
municipalities support-
ing the amendment in
the wake of the 2010 U.S.
Supreme Court deci-
sion in Citizens United
v. the Federal Elections
Commission, which re-
moved restrictions on the
amount of money that
could be contributed to
political campaigns.


Mayor John Holic, Vice
Mayor Kit McKeon, and
city council members
Jim Bennett and Dave
Sherman voted to sup-
port the amendment,
while council members
Jeanette Gates and Bob
Daniels voted against it.
City Council member
Emilio Carlesimo was
absent; he voiced oppo-
sition to the amendment
at the Aug. 14 meeting.
The vote came on the
heels of citizens' input
and a lively discussion
among the council mem-
bers. Venice residents Don
O'Connell and Deborah
Anderson sounded off
against the amendment,
while Ellen Hillstrom,
Cynthia Vance and Kindra
Muntz a spokesperson
for Sarasota Alliance for


Fair Elections spoke for
an assemblage of about
30 local residents wearing
red shirts in support of it.
"By making this an
agenda item, you interject
partisan politics in a non-
partisan forum," O'Connell
said. "It has no business
being considered by the
Venice City Council."
"This is a liberal, pro-
gressive issue," Anderson
added. "They're trying to
hurt the Republicans' or
conservatives' ability to
get their message across
to the people."
Ellen Hillstrom, a
registered Republican,
disagreed with Anderson.
"The motion to amend
is an American thing to
do," Hillstrom said. "Not
Republican or Democrat.
We're all involved."


Muntz said the
Supreme Court ruling
frees political action
committees, known as
Super PACs, to raise
exorbitant funds that
can anonymously and
unfairly leverage cam-
paign contributions. She
exhorted council to fol-
low the lead of the U.S.
Conference of Mayors,
which passed the resolu-
tion against corporate
personhood in June.
"The most urgent ac-
tion needed is to reverse
the impacts of the U.S.
Supreme Court Citizens
United 2010 decision
and the door it opens for
unlimited independent
campaign expenditures,"
Muntz said.
Gates said she was
"hesitant" to oppose a


Supreme Court ruling,
while Daniels believes
corporations do not pose
the largest problem in
this matter.
"The biggest people
that are controlling this
country are the unions,
and the most powerful is
the National Education
Association," Daniels
said.
Holic said adopting a
resolution supporting
an amendment to the
Constitution is some-
thing he takes "very seri-
ously," adding he felt it
is important to come up
with a law "that equalizes
the playing field." Holic
recalled his 2010 mayoral
campaign, in which he
was the focus of negative
advertising funded by a
Super PAC in Idaho.


"I was depicted as an
evil person in this mailer,
in black and white with
a dark background, with
crows flying around,
along with a picture of
Nancy Pelosi," he said.
"I knew which of the
candidates did it, but
he wouldn't admit it.
Because when you're
dealing with a Super
PAC, you're not supposed
to know what the Super
PAC is doing. Look, I'm
totally for free speech.
But if you're going to
say something, put your
name behind it."
Holic said a resolution
will be drafted by staff
based on the one passed
by the Conference of
Mayors, and will come
before council "by the
end of September."


Lowery, Cunningham tapped as assistant admins


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY
- County Administrator
Randall Reid's plan to
reshape administrative
staff took another step
forward last week with
the appointments of Lee
Ann Lowery and Mark
Cunningham as assistant
county administrators.
Lowery, 58, comes to
the area from St. Lucie
County, where she is
the current assistant
county administrator.
Since starting with St.
Lucie in 2007, she has
also served the county as
environmental resources
director, as well as
parks, recreation and
facilities director. She
has a master's degree in
public administration
from the University of
Central Florida and 25
years of experience in
public administration
in Florida, according to
county officials.
Reid said he's been
aware of Lowery for the
last couple of decades,
as she's worked on
planning and school
issues in Central Florida.
During Reid's time as
Alachua County admin-
istrator before he came
to Sarasota, Lowery was
serving as assistant city
manager in Gainesville,
where she handled com-
munity services projects
and programs for the
homeless while also
serving as city liaison to


Alachua County. Lowery
has also been manager
of youth and family
services for
Orange
County and
worked for
that coun-
ty's school
board as
senior
LOWERY manager
for govern-
ment relations and real
property.
"Lee Ann Lowery
supports diversity and
respect for people, and
that is essential to me,"
Reid said.
Lowery will draw
an annual salary of
$150,000, including ben-
efits. She is expected to
begin work with Sarasota
on Sept. 10.
Cunningham, 47, is
coming to the county
from Denton, Texas,


where he has been the
executive director of
planning and develop-
ment. He
also was
director of
land de-
velopment
in Polk
County,
..l has been
CUNNINGHAM a develop-
ment review

of Maryland," said
Reid, pointing out that
Maryland's smart-
growth movement and
urban Baltimore rede-
velopment are relevant
to issues in Sarasota
County. "He is an
articulate, well-spoken,
professional planner
and enhances the
diversity of my leader-
ship team. He will help
ensure collaboration on
quality developments
and promote infill
development.


"Planning is a very
localized issue now with
state changes, and plan-
ning will be an issue here
as development picks
up."'
Cunningham will be
working with County
Engineer Jim Harriott
to coordinate activities
involving planning,
development and
construction. Harriott
has been assigned
responsibility for the
county field operations
facility on Sarasota


Center Boulevard and
will have an expanded
role in coordinating
capital improvements
construction and
maintenance.
Cunningham will be
paid an annual salary of
$150,000 with benefits.
He is expected to begin
work with the county on
Sept. 24.
Neither Lowery nor
Cunningham could be
reached for comment.

Dearborn contracts are put on hold


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Concerns over a lack
of bids for contracts
prompted the Sarasota
County Commission to
delay making a decision
last week on a pair of
contracts for the West
Dearborn Street im-
provements project in
Englewood.
At issue is a $5.9 million
contract with Close
Construction LLC for
stormwater retrofits
using a low-impact
design system, part
of the improvements
project. Another pro-
posed contract, with
DMK Associates Inc.
for engineering services
valued at $298,000, also
was tabled.
Despite the delay,
Englewood Community
Redevelopment Area
Coordinator Debbie
Marks said she still
planned for a ceremo-
nial ground-breaking
Sept. 6.
"I'm optimistic," Marks
said.
The LID project is


one that is unique and
not one that just any
contractor can tackle,
she said. Marks said
she believed commis-
sioners would be more
comfortable moving
forward with the project
when they reconsider it
Wednesday.
Close Construction
was the only bidder
on the stormwater
project, which will use
specially engineered
bio-swales surrounding
West Dearborn to treat
stormwater before it
drains into Lemon Bay.
The system also calls for
storing stormwater to be
used for irrigation in the
dry months.
Two other com-
panion projects with
an estimated cost
of $2.1 million two
parking lots and the
Veterans Memorial
Freedom Pavilion -
received no bids, draw-
ing commissioners' ire.
"I find it hard to
believe that we only
got one bid on the
main project and no


bids on the alterna-
tives," Commissioner
Joe Barbetta said at last
Wednesday's meeting.
"It sends up a red flag
to me when you only
have one bidder on a
nearly $6 million project.
So you're talking about
roughly $8 million worth
of work and you only
have one bidder and
only on a part of it."
Marks told commis-
sioners some contrac-
tors raised concerns
over vertical building
for the Veteran's
Memorial Pavilion,
which will consist of
two structures. One will
have a "green" roof- a
planted area on the
roof with systems that
capture water and use
it to irrigate the plants.
She speculated that the
county received only
one bid because the
items were packaged
together and had the
two other pieces as
alternates. This meant
they did not have to be
bid on as part of the
drainage project.


"We've heard through
some sources that we do
anticipate getting bids
when we re-bid on the
other two parts," Marks
told the commission.
"The other two parts -
especially the Veterans
Memorial are special-
ized work and different
than drainage work.
We do hope to capture
more bids through that
next bidding-phase
process."
Barbetta said he would
feel better if there were
an independent analysis
of the feasibility of
the entire project, and
wants to see if there
is something wrong.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson wanted staff
to speak with Close
and inquire about
their concerns for the
alternatives. Marks said
the package received by
potential contractors
was large and contained
several minute details
about the work that may
have overwhelmed any
interested bidders.
"They want to know


whether it's the docu-
ments we sent out or is
it just the fact that the
project was too massive
for some of these local
bidders to bid on," Marks
said.
The contract and
answers to the commis-
sioners' questions will be
presented Wednesday fol-
lowing the commission's
joint workshop with the
Sarasota County School
Board.
"This is an extremely
important project and
we have to make sure
that the process is right
and that we get the
contract right on this,"
said Commission Chair


Christine Robinson.
"Everybody wants to get
to the end, but we need
to make sure this is done
correctly and doesn't
have a cloud over it."
Last month, com-
missioners approved
spending $2.25 million
in Englewood CRA
funds to match a 50-
50 Southwest Florida
Water Management
District grant for the
LID system. They also
approved the CRA bor-
rowing $5.575 million
for the West Dearborn
improvements.

Indecent exposure at Caspersen Park


The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office made
four arrests for indecent
exposure
while work-
ing under-
cover Friday
afternoon at
Caspersen
Beach Park
in Venice.
In four
C*LARK separate
incidents,
Glenn
S Orthaus,
S- .C 48, of San
S Antonio,
STexas; John
Clark, 46,
3200 block

David

and Daniel
Sukel, 80,
ORTHAUS 100 block
Woodbridge
Drive,
Venice;
approached
undercover
detectives
as they
walked
SUKEL through the
park and
exposed themselves in
an attempt to engage in
sexual activity.
Undercover detectives
conducted the operation
in response to com-
plaints about indecent
activity at the public
park.
Sukel was charged with
indecent exposure in
public. Clark, Hoffa and
Orthaus were charged
with exposure of sexual
organs. Both charges are
misdemeanors.

Bomb threat
may be incident
of 'SWATing'
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office is con-
tinuing to investigate
a bomb threat made
Monday morning

Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction. Guilt is determined by the
courtsystem.


regarding a SCAT bus.
At approximately
9:15 a.m. the Sarasota
County switchboard
received a call from an
undetermined number.
The male caller stated
that authorities had 24
hours to determine which
SCAT bus had a bomb on
it, and then hung up.
Due to the Tropical
Storm Isaac weather clo-
sures, SCAT busses were
not running. A thorough
search of the bus depot
and all buses was made,
and no explosive devices
were found.
At this time detec-
tives are trying to trace
the origin of the call.
They suspect this may
be another instance of
"SWATing."
"SWATing" is a prank
phone call to lure law
enforcement to a fake
emergency situation. The
FBI and other agencies
that have investigated
similar crimes say the
hoax is committed by
manipulating computers
and phone equipment.
Criminals spoof phone
systems to make the call
appear to originate locally
or hack gaming systems
such as Xbox Live to
select victims or send
emergency messages over
the Internet connection.
Anyone with infor-
mation on this case
is encouraged to call

Still Yummies after all these years


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Yummies Donuts,
Bakery and BBQ, 5005
State Road 776, opened
in 1989. A year later Alan
Tines joined the owner
in the store and seven
years ago Tines and his
wife, Karen, acquired the
business when the owner
retired.
They use the original
recipes and have re-
tained the striking old
Florida appearance of
the store as they mark 23
years in business.
Tines was 10 years old
when his family came to
this area from Detroit.
After high school, he took
commercial cooking and
baking classes at Sarasota
Vocational, then worked
at Publix before joining
Yummies. His wife is from
Chicago and handles
the administrative side
of Yummies and assists
in her family-owned
Sarasota businesses.
Realizing the necessity
of expanding the dough-
nut store, their biggest
challenge was to retain
its appealing family-style
image while growing it to
a full-line business as they
introduced new products
and services. They added
the dining area at the front


but to this day continue
operating in the original
small kitchen, fitted out
with modern baking
equipment, overcoming
space restrictions by hiring
employees who work on a
twenty-four hour schedule
seven days a week.
The work day begins
long before Yummies
opens at 6 a.m. the
night before, in fact, so
the earliest products will
be ready for the start of
wholesale deliveries at
2 a.m. Their expanded
distribution area stretch-
es from Boca Grande to
Bee Ridge Road, Sarasota,
supplying convenience
stores, gas stations, car
dealerships, golf courses,
hotels and coffee trucks
serving local routes.
Their catering services
include barbecuing, kettle
corn popping and making
doughnuts onsite for
parties for any occasion
- even bridal receptions,
baking hot, fresh pow-
dered sugar doughnuts,
then boxing them for
departing guests.
"Because many custom-
ers who came as children
to get their Yummies
doughnuts now bring their
children, the big demand
for us is to be consistent
while adding different
toppings, especially for the

children," said Alan.
During the winter sea-
son doughnut varieties
change. They say they are
the only doughnut shop
in Southwest Florida
baking and serving Polish
paczkis on Fat Tuesday.
"We are always adding


a lot of different, yummy
things," Karen said.
"But the recipes have
not changed, and it
is the same schedule.
Everything is made here,
hand-cut and fried.
We do not use a frozen
product in the store."


The doughnut shop
is daily from 6 a.m. to
1 p.m., later on the week-
end, when they barbecue
and have kettle corn for
diners at picnic tables on
the patio, offer takeout
and cater parties.
"People driving by do


not realize all that has
been done over 23 years
to make Yummies the
'modern doughnut and
more' bakery in a histori-
cal setting," said Alan.

It allows them to see
exactly where the healthy
kidney stops and the
kidney tumor begins by
illuminating the healthy
tissue using a special dye
injected intravenously

surgery is performed
more safely and with less

shorter hospital stay and
quicker recovery time.

Realtors offer thoughts on amendments


I just returned from
Orlando, where I attend-
ed the Florida Realtors
annual convention. This
was a wonderful learn-
ing experience for all
Realtors.
There were classes on
ethics and other topics,
such as how to properly


price properties. We also
decided what proposed
amendments to the
Florida Constitution we
want to support in the
November elections.
Amendment 2 would
expand the exemption
for disabled veterans to
include those not resid-
ing in Florida when their
injury occurred. This
has a relatively small
fiscal impact (less than
$2.5 million for 2013-14),
will encourage veterans
to move to Florida
and expands a worthy
exemption already
supported by Florida
Realtors.


Amendment 3 would
replace the current state
revenue cap, which has
been in place since 1994
and has never been
used, with a new cap
that would limit state
revenue growth based
on growth in popula-
tion and inflation. If
this were in place since
1980, the new cap would
have been used once,
in 2006. It requires
excess revenues to be
deposited into the state's
Budget Stabilization
Fund, used to support
public schools by
reducing property taxes
used to fund education


or returned to the
taxpayers.
Amendment 9 pro-
poses a new property tax
exemption for surviving
spouses of military
veterans or first respond-
ers killed during active
duty. This amendment
has a relatively low fiscal
impact ($660,000 for
the first year) and is a
worthy exemption for
the families of our fallen
heroes.
Amendment 10
expands the tangible
personal property tax
exemption from $25,000
to $50,000 and allows
local governments to


further exemption by
local ordinance. Florida
Realtors supported the
increase in the exemp-
tion four years ago from
$5,000 to $25,000.
Amendment 11 would
allow local governments
to enact an exemption
for low-income seniors
who have lived in their
homes for at least 25
years. It has no impact
on schools, and a rela-
tively low fiscal impact
on local governments.
Amendment 4 is a big
one for everyone. This
amendment would lower
property taxes for new
home buyers and spur


much needed economic
growth in the housing
market.
This amendment will
also protect working
families, small busi-
nesses and home owners
from unfair and unex-
pected tax increases by
helping to stop "recap-
ture," a tax gimmick that
will increase property
taxes when property
values have declined.

Inventory is down, prices are up


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Pending home sales in
the Venice area showed
a 52.1 percent increase
year over year, from 119
in July 2011 to 181 last
month. It's a sign buyers
are seizing opportunities
before prices potentially
take off and sellers are
accepting gradually
increasing fair market


values, according to
Re/Max Alliance Group.
Median selling prices
showed a significant in-
crease up 22.1 percent,
from $140,000 in July 2011
to $171,000 last month,
and an encouraging
14.1 percent increase from
June to July of this year.
In Sarasota County as a
whole the median selling
price increased year over


year for July by 7.9 percent,
from $141,000 to $151,000.
"The encouraging
news is a combination
of a small percentage of
distressed, foreclosure
and short-sale properties
coupled with increasing
demand from buyers,"
said Peter Crowley of
Re/Max Alliance Group.
"The overall inventory is
significantly lower and


demand very heavy."
Tropical Storm
Debbie took a toll on
home sales, reflected
in a temporary pause
in activity last month
that left residential sales
virtually stagnant 149
in July 2012 compared to
148 in July 2011.
But the good news for
sellers is the shortage
of listings appears to be


forcing prices upward.
During these typically
slower summer months
there has been increased
pending activity com-
pared to both last month
and last year. The aver-
age number of days on
the market year over year
dropped 14.8 percent in
Venice, comparable with
a 13.4 percent drop in
Sarasota County.


The available home
inventory in the Venice
area is down 22.4 percent
from July 2011, including
a 5.1 percent decrease
from June to July 2012.
In Sarasota County the
available inventory
dropped by 24 percent
compared to July 2011
and 6.1 percent com-
pared to June 2012.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


Send the Legislature a message about texting


We have to tip our hats to a
local grassroots effort aimed
at persuading teenagers to
put down their not-so-smart phones
and stop texting when they get behind
the wheel of a car.
We've been on this soapbox before,
but we'll say it again: Texting-while-
driving is dangerous behavior and it is
a growing problem, especially among
younger drivers. Because the Legislature
has failed repeatedly to pass any law
banning the practice, it seems the only
way we're likely to produce any change
is from the bottom up. So be it.
We hope the local effort catches
on from one school to the next and
then spreads to Tallahassee, where
legislators may finally recognize their
responsibility to make the roads safer.
A text-in at the statehouse? Bring it on.
As Sun staffer Merab-Michal


Favorite reported in our daily papers
last week, Lisa Hamlin of Charlotte
Harbor has kicked off an anti-texting
campaign at Charlotte High School.
The program will encourage students
to take a no-texting-while-driving
pledge. A national company will do-
nate bracelets that say "Texting Kills."
The message will be hammered home
during in-school announcements.
Hamlin told the Sun she was
motivated by an accident apparently
caused by a texting driver, a teenager.
"It was then I knew I had to do some-
thing about this epidemic," she said.
Good for her. An epidemic it is.
Distracted driving was linked to
3,092 highway deaths last year, ac-
cording to the National Transportation
Safety Board. The state estimates
more than 25,000 accidents last year
involved distracted drivers.


Not all distracted driving accidents
were due to cellphone use many
drivers fiddle with the radio and wolf
down a burger after cruising through
the drive-in but all indications are
that DWT (driving-while-texting) is
becoming more commonplace. One
survey showed half of all drivers in
the 21-24 age group admitted using a
cellphone while driving. And texting
has become the preferred means of
communication with many.
We see it every day on the roads. We
know it's dangerous. In fact, polls have
shown more than 90 percent of the
American public favor a texting ban of
some sort. Yet Florida is one of only 11
states that still lack a driver texting-ban.
In 2011, a bill sponsored by Sen.
Nancy Detert, R-Venice, made it to
the Senate floor, where it passed by an
overwhelming 34-4 margin. The House


refused to take it up. This year, Detert's
bill passed 20-1 in the Senate Budget
Committee, then was shunted off to a
sidetrack, where it died. A companion
House bill sponsored by Rep. Ray
Pilon, R-Sarasota, also went nowhere.
It's all the more galling that the mea-
sure was relatively light: The act of typing
(not just reading) a text message while
driving would have been a nonmoving
violation, a secondary offense (police
would need another, primary reason
to pull someone over) and subject to a
$30 fine. A slap on the wrist, sure, but
perhaps enough to get some people to
put their phones down in the car.
Maybe if enough parents, teachers
and students join the campaign, legis-
lators will have enough courage to "just
say no" to this public safety threat. It
worked for Mothers Against Drunk
Driving. It could work for this too.


Lessons shared


Ia


Tim
Smolarick


For two or three days last week
I found myself in worry mode: A
storm was heading our way.
Isaac kept gaining momen-
tum and the experts had South
Florida as a probable landing
site for yet another storm. My
mind shifted back to Charley
even as Isaac was passing
us, leaving a gentle yet firm
reminder of what could have
been. Charley made a nasty turn
that changed many people's
lives in our region. Would Isaac
do the same? The wind hit
53 mph during one of its gusts
here in Venice, and as a commu-
nity we probably did not have
many adverse effects from that
one gust. But the constant wind
brought back strong memories.
I was part of the first convoy of
supplies that left Tampa the day
after Charley ripped through this
region. We met at a huge parking
lot somewhere south of Venice
right off 75. From there we were
directed to the command post,
I will call it, and assigned two
law enforcement vehicles to
follow us; given direction to our
assigned area; and sent out to
deliver.
Lessons learned from
Andrew created this type of or-
ganization. Andrew's aftermath
and supply efforts were incred-
ibly tense for the suppliers and
the public, who were left with
nothing. The folks handling
Charley's aftermath were very
organized and efficient.
As we drove through the
damaged areas, my mind kept
comparing this situation to my
vivid memories of Andrew, and
I actually got prepared men-
tally for the worse concerning
what we were about to face.
As the police officers guided
us to our first stop and I jumped
from the truck to open the doors,
I was amazed at the calmness
of those affected. I looked
around and houses were gone or
destroyed, children were crying,
parents and grandparents were
trying to console the little ones,
yet there was calm. The people


formed a line; they did not rush
the truck and create confusion.
We asked each person about
their immediate needs to get by
for the day. As they responded,
you could see some folks asking
for more than they needed and
then stopping and saying, "If you
come back tomorrow, I don't need
this." We assured all we would be
back as many days as needed,
and the people started leaving
a little for the next person. I was
touched by how that just spread.
We made three stops that
day. Our last one was close
to where Charley came on
shore, and the devastation was
incredible. We witnessed some
things I will never forget, and
one event that has haunted me
each hurricane season since.
The aftermath of a hurricane
is not something I want to
see ever again; however, if the
need arises I will show up,
because that is what we do.
The point of my writing this
is really one of preparedness.
From firsthand experience,
believe me, you must be
prepared. After Andrew, I could
have said to people, "Do you
want $1,000 or this $4.50 pack
of D batteries?" The D batteries
would have gone quicker.
Stock up on batteries now; if
a storm should find us, you will
need them. Water is a must, by far
the easiest thing to stock up on,
yet not many people do. You don't
want to be the one who is left
standing without water when the
supply truck is empty and can't
get back to you until daylight.
Food is another easy item to
stock and save things like
granola bars, canned food that
can be popped open, crackers
and any other nonperishable
food you can think of should
be stored and ready.
Electricity can be nonexis-
tent for days; your refrigerator
food will spoil. Cooking will be
difficult, so the easier you can
make meals, the better.
Keep a bag of essentials
handy that would suffice for a
person or two for a day. If the
storm is catastrophic, people
get desperate. It's easier to be
prepared to give them a hand
than to have your stuff taken.
Finally, pay attention to what
is happening with the weather,
but don't get caught up in the
guessing game. If there is a
chance the storm will make it to
wherever you are, be prepared.

No followers. I would sug-
gest all businesses that adver-
tise on TV, local and national,
ask that their ads not follow
a political ad. Why? Myself,
I keep the remote handy for
any Obama commercials with
sound off and often I forget to
put the sound back on, miss-
ing any following commercials.
I cannot listen to lie after lie
or distraction after distraction
from a leader who has put
our country in jeopardy. We
all know the issues. Damn, I
forgot the sound; now where
is that remote? Also, add me
to the list of people who avoid
restaurants that welcome dogs.
Catch them. I'm calling
about the Nokomis Beach
Pavilion. Why can't something
be done about the vandal-
ism that takes place there on
a regular basis? The county
spent thousands of dollars
remodeling and replacing
walkways, only to have them
vandalized almost weekly. It
would seem that the sheriff's
office could do a foot patrol or
put up cameras or something
because it's such a waste to
spend all that money only to
allow delinquents to destroy it.
Showtime. If Sarah Palin,
Michelle Bachmann, Herman
Cain, Donald Trump and Newt
Gingrich are all coming to
Florida and they are not asked
to speak at the Republican
National Convention, maybe
they could come to Venice
and do a benefit at the circus
grounds to help buy a new
roof. Now that would be a
five-ring circus that I, as a
disgruntled Republican, would
pay to see. Then I could say
that the circus returned to
Venice.
No mis. Would I patronize
a business that has doggie
dining? No. This is a matter
of public record, there is one
restaurant that has put in an
application for doggie dining,
and I will not patronize them
anymore. It's sad, because I
like Mexican food.
Unchartered. Should the
Venice city manager be able to
fire the police chief or the fire


Let 'em



















Have It
chief? The answer is absolutely
yes. That would be part of
his job description and it's
also part of the city's charter.
Since those positions are not
charter officer positions, city
council would have oversight
over those positions. They may
have an opinion, but at the
end of the day, it falls under
the jurisdiction of the city
manager's position.
Near, not in. Let's set the
record straight: Dogs are not
allowed in restaurants but
outside the restaurants, and
in most cases on the sidewalk.
Maybe provide a water bowl.
So now let your heart not be
troubled and get back to your
early birds at any restaurant.
Which R? Who's really going
to be president, Mitt Romney
or Paul Ryan?
Hardship. The article
about the docks at Marker
IV seems to have a couple
of things that conflict with
previous reports, one being
that the Marker IV owner had
sold those submerged lands
to Harbor Lights. It was my
understanding that the sale
price was like a dollar and ac-
tually gave those submerged
lands to Harbor Lights.
Afterwards they went and
upgraded all their seawall
and docks, which they would


have never done prior to hav-
ing been given those lands.
Now they want to complain
about the docking facility
for the marina. The other
issue is that in fact it's 18 feet
over and we're talking about
measuring more than 400 feet
of structure on the water. If
you look at the configuration
of the docks, it would only
make sense to be the length
they are. Because of the dock
orientation and the way
docks are laid out these are
commercial docks just like
any marina would have it
would be a severe hardship to
have built that dock less than
he was permitted for. And the
state trumps local authority.
There have been several cases
in Sarasota County in which
the state overruled the county
and the city of Sarasota in
docking permits because it
is the ultimate authority. The
other issue is the "not in my
backyard" stuff. You say in the
article that the Harbor Lights
property owners would still
complain. They don't want
any docks there. Oh, but they
were very happy to get this
submerged land so they could
improve their own docks.
But God forbid somebody
else would want to enjoy the
water as well. Crow's Nest is
the only other place that you
can dock in Venice. I cannot
believe this has gone on so
long, this argument over
18 feet.

Still looking for some accountability


When a donor es-
tablishes a fund at a
foundation, he or she
expects and usually gets
an accounting of where
the money is granted, the
investment return, fees
and the net left in the
account. This, unfortu-
nately is not happening
to the $115 million that
established The Venice
Foundation and The
Venice Endowment
that were to benefit the
people in the area that
Venice Hospital served,
from Osprey to Boca
Grande.
It was just more
than a year ago that
the words "of Venice"
were removed from
the foundation's name,
invigorating a group of


i]
[W g. A J


founding members of the
foundation and hospital
board members of the
old Venice Hospital to
look to see if the money
was being spent as the
donors requested. It was
obvious that not all of it
was going to benefit that
area; in fact, it appeared
that maybe only half was.
The citizens of Osprey,
Laurel, Nokomis, Venice,
Englewood, Boca
Grande and North Port
who financially helped
grow Venice Hospital
deserve the rewards and
deserve to know how
their money is being
spent. The group repre-
senting those concerned
calls itself SAVE.
So an overture to
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation was made
to get details of how the
money was being spent,
who the grants were
to and what for, and
how much was going to
operations. Part of this
was triggered by the
astronomical $9 million
in costs the foundation
incurred, as reported on


its last 990 IRS financial
report.
Of course, we were
also concerned that The
Venice Endowment had
been folded back into
the foundation so that
detailed reporting was
no longer required. The
endowment in 1997 had
$127 million; in 2002,
just after Ms. Hansen
took over, there was $132
million. Upon inquiring
of the foundation about
details of its spending,
the only number it would
give us is that it now
contained $108 million.
That means in 10 years
it had lost $24 million, a
disastrous return on our
investment. There were
many programs like
giving Saks Fifth Avenue
shoppers a $25 gift card
to give to their favorite
charity that we could
not tell if came out of
The Venice Endowment.
On top of this, there
was $20 million more
in 2003 that went to the
foundation when Bon
Secours sold the hospital
to HMA, which triggered


a clause requiring that
hospital foundation
funds revert to The
Venice Foundation (now
GCCF). That money
was to be used in the
same service area for
healthcare grants. That
should have meant about
$800,000 a year in grants.
We just saw the first such
grant this month. Where
has that money been
going?
Those numbers
heightened concerns, so
SAVE developed a way
to inform the public
about their investment. A
website, veniceflorida
foundation.com, was
established. If you visit
that site you can join the
group or sign up for oc-
casional updates of what
is happening.
Newspapers got
somewhat involved, with
the Gondolier Sun asking
for accountability. GCCF
provided a full-page ad
that outlined none of the
details of its finances,
particularly the uses of
the Venice Endowment
money. It doesn't even


have a financial report in
its annual report.
We still hoped the
problem could be solved
with transparency. A
small group of SAVE
members asked for a
meeting with the chair-
man of the GCCF board,
the CEO and a couple of
other interested people.
The purpose was to see
if they could get a clear
accounting of how the
money was being spent.
They asked for the grant
history, the investment
results, the fees and
charges (operational
costs) from that fund.
In the meeting, the
foundation agreed to
provide that informa-
tion. After some further
correspondence, the
foundation opted
to not provide any
information.
Furthermore, in
the correspondence
it claimed SAVE con-
tacted the Council
on Foundations with
a complaint. It said
it responded to that
complaint with a lot of


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Arena is
definitely historic

Editor:
One of my favorite sec-
tions of the paper is the
Let'em Have It column. It
gives everyone a chance
to blow off a little steam
over issues around town.
I was pleased to see the
word "historic" appear at
the bottom of the page
and immediately read
that comment first. It
was from someone who
had visited the historic
Venice Train Depot and
had been given a tour
by one of our trained
docents. They said that
they had a great time and
considered the depot to
be an asset to Venice (as
do we!).
The final part of
the statement was a
request: "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."
I am happy to answer
this request as follows.
Dear Visitor:


We were happy that you
had a good experience
with us and I'm sure that
part of your tour included
the history of the circus
and the great impact that it
had on Venice for 30 years.
I'm sure that you saw the
statue of Gunther Gebel-
Williams on the grounds
of the Rollins Coakley
Railroad Park, a project
sponsored by the Venice
Area Historical Society.
We have also honored
Gunther's son, Mark, and
grandson, Hunter, during
our 85th celebration of the

by the county, and
make it more difficult if
not impossible for the

that has been imposed
on Marker IV by a

$130,000.
The county is doing
what it can to make

Marker IV declines to
make the corrections.
Marker IV is also in

county. Is this a bailout
by the city?
The city has recently
OK'd the demolition of

city has also changed
its ordinances so it
can correct unsightly

Indians win season opener


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High
volleyball team pitched
a shutout in its season
opener at Riverview
Tuesday night, taking the
match by scores of 25-15,
25-21 and 25-22.
Danica Yoder led the
Indians with 22 assists
and 14 digs, while Holly
Mattmuller added 11 kills
and 9 digs.
Although the outcome
of the match was never in
doubt, head coach Brian
Wheatley was concerned
with a couple aspects of
his team's performance.
"I'm always honest with
my team, win or lose," said
Wheatley. "I was a little
disappointed with our
execution and our general
fundamentals. Defensively,
we were very sloppy and
our serving was extremely
unaggressive. That's not us.
Those are the two areas we
like to be the best at and
we took a little dip. But it's
the first game of the year,
we're on the road. There
are definitely some posi-
tives to take out of it."
One of those positives is
the resiliency that the team

responded well to pressure Tuesday, Riverview rallied
thus far, as they showed to within one point (22-21)
in coming back from a in the third game before a
13-11 deficit in the decisive 3-1 Indians run closed out


the match.
Lauren Mattmuller had
6 kills on 15 attempts with
no errors, 3 blocks and
an ace. Hannah Richards
added 6 kills and Taylor


Jais contributed 8 digs for
Venice.
The Indians will have
to improve their play
tomorrow, however, as
Cardinal Mooney and


Bloomingdale will visit the
Teepee for a tri-match.
Wheatley and Holly
Mattmuller admitted they
were excited for tomor-
row's matches, but both
insisted the Indians did
not overlook Riverview.
"We all have up and
down days, today just
wasn't on the upside,"
said Mattmuller. "We
were off a little bit. Our
heads were focused on
tonight's game, but we're
also very anxious for
tomorrow night." The
Indians play Cardinal
Mooney at 4:30 p.m. and
Bloomingdale at 7 p.m.
Cardinal Mooney plays
Bloomingdale at 6 p.m.
Wheatley said playing
two matches in a three-
hour span will not change
his team's approach. "No,
we go hard. We're really
looking forward to tomor-
row night, having Margo
and Kristen back in our
gym. It's going to be a
great atmosphere, and
I'm excited about what
those two girls are doing
with their programs. We're
going to give it our best
shot tomorrow night.
We'll be ready to go."

Vikings shut out Cypress Lakes in three of five


STAFF REPORT

The Venice Vikings won
three of their five games
by shutout in the season
opener at Cypress Lakes
Saturday.
The Knights, Kings and
Lancers combined to
outscore the Hornets by a
total of 56-0. The Crusaders
tied 12-12 and the Warriors
suffered the lone defeat,
falling 36-6. Venice will
travel to Fort Myers Sept. 1.

Danes vs.
Cypress Lakes
(score not kept)
In this first game of
the 2012 Venice Vikings
football season, the
youngest division, the
Danes, set the tone for
the day by having a strong
performance against the
Cypress Lakes Hornets,
scoring three touchdowns
in the first half.
The first score of the
game came on quarter-
back Brady Robertson's 22-
yard touchdown run after
a great hole was created by
linemen Cooper Jackson
and Malakai Corbett.
Key first-down runs
by running backs Carter
Dalton and Jeremiah
Pachota helped set up the
next score. Center Dalton
Grosse snapped the ball
to Robertson and was able
to block the linebacker
so Robertson could get
into the end zone for the
second touchdown of the
game. Robertson ended

the first half with a 35-
yard score after getting a
key block from Dalton.
In the second half,
Dalton took a handoff
and scampered 50 yards
for the fourth touchdown
of the game. The last
score of the game came
from running back Micah
Williams, who went
around the left side and
followed his blockers for
a 55-yard touchdown.
The Danes offense never
punted during the game.
On the other side of the
ball the Danes defense was
a stone wall. The Hornets
were forced to punt four
times and were shut out
during the entire first
half. In the second half
the Danes defense, led by
linebackers Wyatt Grich,
Thomas Chace and Sean
Seibert, allowed three
scores but fought long and


hard to give the offense
great field position.

Cypress Lakes 0
The offense scored
three touchdowns this
week; one by Cade Preece,
another by Cato Glover-
Terry on a sweep and the
third by John Whitney
on a 50-yard touchdown
run. Whitney also kicked
two extra points. This was
all made possible by the
outstanding blocking by
the offensive line of Olivia
and Luke Sleight, Adrian
Garcia, Craig Schwier,
Allijah Fissel, John Lake,
Tyler Kisgen, Brett Welsh,
Michael Peavley, Nathan
Mettile and Eric Beck.
There were also some

Tellor earns Player of the Year award


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

Matt Tellor, a 2010
Venice High grad, was
recently named Mike
Schmidt Player of the Year
in the Prospect League, a
summer collegiate wood-
bat league made up
of 12 teams from
Missouri, Illinois,
Indiana, Kentucky,
Ohio, West Virginia and
Pennsylvania.
Tellor, a junior at


Lindenwood University in
St. Charles, Mo., hit .341
with 18 home runs and
66 RBI for the Springfield
(Mo.) Sliders this past sea-
son. He was also named
Co-Prospect of the Year.
He was invited back to the
league this summer after
competing in 2011.
The Prospect League is
made up of college players
who are deemed by
coaches and baseball in-
siders to be pro prospects.
The league gives scouts an


opportunity to evaluate
prospects in a competitive
environment more similar
to pro ball where play-
ers use wood bats than
college baseball, which still
uses aluminum.
Tellor credits his work
ethic for his breakout
season.


"One of the biggest
keys to my success this
summer was definitely -.
the extra work I put in," .
he said. "I was always the I
first player there taking
extra BP (batting practice)
with the coach. I feel like

HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL



Wheatley, former players to square off


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR
Venice High's
Wednesday evening
volleyball tri-match
with Bloomingdale and
Cardinal Mooney will be
a high school reunion
of sorts for Indians head
coach Brian Wheatley.
Only, instead of reunit-
ing with old classmates,
he'll be coaching against
former players.
Bloomingdale head
coach Margeaux Sinibaldi,
a 2004 Venice grad, and
Cougars head coach
Kristen Batt, class of 1999,
went on to star during
their college careers.
Sinibaldi won a national
championship and was a
two-time All America at
the University of Tampa,
while Batt was a four-year
starter who was named
to the All-SEC team at the
University of Kentucky
before going on to a pro-
fessional beach volleyball
career.
Asked if he had any
inkling that his former
star players would go
on to lead outstanding
programs of their own one
day, Wheatley said, "No,
I really didn't. They both
earned college scholar-
ships, and who knew what
they were going to do after
that?"
Even Sinibaldi didn't
know she would develop a
passion for coaching until
she reached college.

it paid off for me."
Scouts have already
begun to give Tellor
positive feedback, and
have told him they will
be visiting him during fall
practice as well as when
the college season starts
in the spring.

"When I was playing
at UT, I had the opportu-
nity to coach club (vol-
leyball) while I was playing
because it worked with
my schedule," she said.
"I did that my freshman
year and ever since then I
loved it. I love mentoring
the girls. I really enjoyed
coaching while I was
playing because it made
me a better player; it was
a really great opportunity
to see the other side. So
that was what initially got
me into it, and then I just
stayed in it."
Batt, meanwhile, knew
she would eventually wind
up on the sideline.
"I figured at some point
in my life when I was
done playing that I would
want to coach," she said.
"I had always worked at
camps and clinics when I
came home from school; I
worked at the University of
Tampa and University of
Florida camps. When I got
back here (after college),
having played under
Wheatley and knowing
what a great coach he
was, I decided to be his
assistant (from 2005-06)."
After a few years playing
professionally, Batt took
the head job at Cardinal
Mooney in 2010. Last year
was Sinibaldi's first as a
head coach after leading
Bloomingdale's JV squad
in 2010.
"They're both very
motivated individuals and


they're very competitive,"
Wheatley said. "Good
coaches have that 'it' fac-
tor, and both of them have
that in their own way."
When asked what they
took fromWheatley's
coaching and tried to ap-
ply to their own programs,
the two young coaches
gave nearly identical
answers.
"He makes his girls
really work," said Sinibaldi.
"He instills a work ethic in
his players that I haven't
seen anywhere else. My
little sister went through
Venice and then went
to UT as well. I was just
talking to her and we both
said that our practices at
Venice were harder than
our practices at UT, not to
take anything away from
UT."
Batt added, "He expects
a lot out of his players and
makes them give every-
thing they have in every
practice and every match."
Batt has already proved
to be a worthy rival, as
last season her Cougars
snapped Venice's 10-year
undefeated streak against
Manatee, Sarasota and
Charlotte county schools.
"My girls really pulled
together that match and
played as a team," she
said. "That was one of our
goals for the year, to beat
Venice. That was just as
exciting for our players as
winning districts was."
Sinibaldi and Batt aren't


the only two ofWheatley's
former players who have
gone on to coaching
careers. His coaching tree
spans all the way to North
Carolina and includes
14 of his former players.
Locally, Julie Howlett
works under Sinibaldi
at Bloomingdale and
Katrina Rico and Courtney
Francese are on Batt's staff
at Cardinal Mooney.
"I think it's cool," said
Wheatley. "I always root
for their teams to win,
except when the Indians
are on the other side of the
net."
Sinibaldi said she's
looking forward to the
matchup.
"I'm really excited about
it," she said. "I don't know
all the girls there (on the
Venice team), but I know
a couple of them from
coaching them through-
out the years. I still feel like
a part of them because
Venice is such a small
town and he's created a
program that you're proud
to be a part of. He teaches
his girls to be proud of
what they do and that's
something I've really
tried to instill in my girls,
is being proud of their
gym and proud of being a
Bloomingdale volleyball
player.
I'm excited for my girls
to experience the tradition
that I got to experience,
because their gym is crazy.
What he does and how he


gets everybody excited,
it's really neat. It'll be fun
because I know his style,
but it's more exciting and
fun than anything else.
"Of course, it would be
awesome to win."
Despite being respon-
sible for breaking Venice's
decade-long streak, Batt
said coaching against
Wheatley isn't weird.
"The first time I walked
into the gym after I was an
assistant with him, it was
a little strange," she said.
"We still talk on a regular
basis. We go to each other
when we have questions
and look to each other for
advice.
"My first two years of
coaching I was talking
to him a ton about what
I should do in certain
situations, and I still look
to him as a mentor, even
though we end up playing
each other."
She revealed that the
biggest lesson she has
learned from Wheatley is
that "you can't treat every
team the same. You're go-
ing to have different girls
and different things that
motivate them. So it's very
important to get to know
your players and figure
out what makes them tick,
what makes them rise to
the challenge and what
they don't respond to. It's
not necessarily volleyball-
related, but it's just trying
to get the most out of
each player you have and


making those players the
best they can be."
Wheatley scheduled
Wednesday's tri-match
precisely because he
knows firsthand the qual-
ity of his former players'
programs. He thinks all
three teams will benefit.
"I'm sure they've taken
the philosophy that I have:
To be the best, you gotta
beat the best," he said.
"I wanted to help them
out in any way I can to
improve their program
and be as successful as
they can. Obviously, we're
going to try to get the Ws
Wednesday night, but if
we can compete against
them and help their teams
get ready for down the
road, that's what we're
here to do.
"They've (Sinibaldi and
Batt) been instrumental in
our program. We always
talk about family in our
program and leaving a
legacy. The girls on my
team now look up to what
they accomplished at
Venice. They left a legacy
and helped build our pro-
gram. They're responsible
for where we are today."
Venice plays Cardinal
Mooney at 4:30 p.m., Batt's
Cougars play Sinibaldi's
Bulls at 6 p.m. and Venice
plays Bloomingdale im-
mediately after. All
matches will be played at
the Teepee at VHS.

County rowing project gets $5M grant


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

One of the biggest
construction projects in
Sarasota County received
a $5 million boost from
the state Wednesday.
The county has
entered into a contract
with Enterprise Florida
for funding $5 million
in improvements to
Nathan Benderson Park
in Sarasota. The park is in
the midst of a $55 million
rowing center project that
officials hope will play
host to the 2017 World
Rowing Championships,
as well as triathlons and
running events.
The $5 million grant
was funded by the state


Legislature earlier this
year and appropriated
for the rowing center. The
grant agreement stipulates
that the money be used
for work that was invoiced
to Enterprise Florida
through the state's fiscal
year that began July 1 and
runs through June 30,
2013. Enterprise Florida
will reimburse the county
on a quarterly basis, simi-
lar to what it does with
other grant agreements
around the state. It's up
to the county to provide
documentation of work
done to the organization
to be reimbursed.
The agreement also
specifies that the county
will work with John Webb,
contract manager at the


Florida Sports Foundation,
the state's sports promo-
tion and development
organization, to prepare
documents necessary to
identify the estimated
impact on jobs relating to
the use of the $5 million
for the project. The
county also is required to
recognize Florida Sports
in marketing materials
related to events held at
Benderson Park.
What was billed as the
$19.5 million second phase
of the project, funded
by the county's tourist
development tax, has now
turned into a $24.5 million
project. It now will include
a fixed vehicular bridge
on the east side of a
man-made Regatta Island


that initially was removed
from phase 2 due to the
cost increase for a full
bridge being constructed
across the lake as part of
Cattleman Road.
The grant also will help
fund a wave-attenuation
system, which will elimi-
nate waves in the water
during rowing events, and
will help prepare the newly
constructed Regatta Island
for vertical construction.
The bridges and the
attenuation system are on
schedule to be completed
by March, in time for the
upcoming rowing season.
"This is just getting
better every day," said
Commissioner Joe
Barbetta. "We've seen
a pretty substantial


economic impact already
in its current state, and
obviously when it's done,
it's going to be one the top
three facilities in the world."
"This really exempli-
fies the meaning of
partnership and what
that's all about," added
Commissioner Carolyn
Mason.
Commission Chair
Christine Robinson said
support for the project
from across the county
- as well as Manatee
County has been
strong and continues to
grow. She also recently
received an email of sup-
port of North Port City
Commission Chair Tom
Jones, and has spoken
with other North Port city


commissioners, who all
have expressed support.
"This was a community
collaboration from the
Charlotte County border
all the way up to Manatee
County, and there are
folks from all walks of
life in the community
who have allowed us to
secure this grant from
the state," Robinson said.
"I would like to specifi-
cally thank the North Port
City Commission for
their recognition on

County to save $43M in debt costs


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Thanks to an aggressive
financial-management
plan aimed at reducing
principal amounts,
retiring and refinancing
utility bonds, refunding
revenue bonds and
reducing property tax
revenue bonds, Sarasota
County will save nearly
$43 million in debt pay-
ments, officials reported
Tuesday.
As part of the total
savings, the Sarasota
County Commission ap-
proved two refinancing


of county debt in the
current low interest-rate
environment on Tuesday.
The first will refinance
about $5.9 million in
general revenue debt
supported by state rev-
enue-sharing proceeds,
at a cost of 1.43 percent.
That will produce about
$875,000 in savings to the
county's General Fund
over the next seven years
- or about $125,000 per
year, officials said.
"I have to thank
(Sarasota County Budget
Analyst) Richard Gleitsman
and his staff, because


over the last year or two,
they've done a great job of
finding these and sav-
ing us a ton of money,"
said Commissioner Joe
Barbetta. "When you hear
rates like that, you hope
that they're around when
we do things we need to
do, like the Siesta Key proj-
ect and 911 Emergency
Operations Center."
The commission also
approved refinancing
$50.2 million in utility
system debt, including
senior and junior lien
borrowings, at a rate of
1.6377 percent. This will

save $3.9 million over the
next 10 years, or about
$390,000 per year. These
were bonds that previ-
ously were issued to the
county for different water
and wastewater improve-
ments that have been
refunded, officials said.
Gleitsman said the
bonds were refunded
about a year ago as part of
a taxable series, at a rate of
more than 5 percent. The
debt rate dropped to about
2.98 percent on a taxable
basis and will fall further
when the bonds are
refunded this time on a


nontaxable basis after
Tuesday's commission
action.
"By refunding them
on a taxable basis, we
reserve the right to be
able to refund them on
a tax-exempt basis,"
Gleitsman said. "It's kind
of like refinancing your
mortgage bringing the
rate down and down and
down to reduce that debt-
service payment. We keep
knocking our debt down
little by little, and we
need to take advantage of
these lower rates."
Commissioner Jon


Thaxton called the sav-
ings "kind of an unusual
source of revenue."
"This continues to be a
high point for the county
- kind of a low-profile
high point, though, one
that not a lot of people
pay attention to," Thaxton
said. "The savings are
very real, they're very
substantial and they so
much improve the lever-
age that this commission
has and the community
has to get the assets and
amenities that make this
a great place to live."

Free lunch numbers rise in school district


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

The number of
Sarasota County students
on free and reduced-
price lunch has increased
dramatically from
last year, according to
Beverly Girard, director
of food and nutritional
services for the district.
"In 2011-12, on the
first day, we had 9,759
students (receiving free
and reduced lunch),"
she told school board
members last week. "Day
one this school year, we
had 13,326."
Girard shared this
information with the
board as part of a regular
update on the district's
wellness policy. The
state formula for free
or reduced-price lunch
specifies that a student
from a four-person


family with an annual
income less than $42,643
is eligible for free lunch.
"I was serving lunch at
Englewood Elementary
yesterday and I had
children tell me they
missed having broc-
coli over the summer,"
because they couldn't
get it at home, she said.
"They missed the fruits
and vegetables."
Board Vice Chair Carol
Todd asked if Girard was
seeing numbers at the
high school and middle
school levels increase,
since in the past the
majority of students re-
ceiving free and reduced-
price lunch were in
elementary school.
"We did see an
increase last year from
previous years," Girard
said. "It's too early to tell
(for this year), but I think
we will see that again."


Board Member Shirley
Brown was taken aback
by the numbers.
"That's a third of our
students now. I know at
some schools it's over
90 percent (of students on
free and reduced lunch),
but it's a little bit shock-
ing," Brown said. "And it's
not just traditionally poor
families, but families
with dads who used to
make $100,000 but have
been out of work for a
year and can't find a job. I
guess I just never thought
about kids coming back
to school and missing
vegetables."
Girard said that once
the application period
ends, the district "will
exceed 50 percent" of


its students on free and
reduced lunch.
"I'm torn between
being so happy you're
here and so sorry you're
needed," Brown said.
Girard also told the
board that price of food
will rise as a result of the
drought the worst in
half a century being
experienced in many
parts of the country.
"We will be expecting
much-increased food
costs, and we've tried to
plan for those increases,"
she said.
There was good news
too, however.
The Sarasota County
School District is one of
only 33 school districts
in the nation designated


as a District of Excellence
by the Department of
Agriculture, and the
undersecretary of the
department will visit
later this year. Girard said
USDA changes to school
meal plans now will re-
quire all schools to serve
fruits and vegetables as
part of meals.
"We've already been
doing that," Girard said.
"It's going to be frustrat-
ing for many districts,
but not for us."
She said the district
also was working closely
with the Sarasota County
Health Department on
the new 5-2-1-0 program
to help students focus
on "having five servings
of fruits and vegetables


a day, only two hours of
screen time, one hour
of physical activity a
day and zero servings
of sodas or sweetened
beverages."
During her presenta-
tion, Girard also intro-
duced a batch of new di-
etetic interns "only two
districts in the U.S. have
them" and said they
were hoping to expand
their nutrition-education
initiatives into the middle
and high schools.
Finally, to encour-
age students about the
importance of breakfast,
Girard said the district
will offer free breakfast to
all students Sept. 10, 17
and 24.

Be prepared


before a storm hits


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
Before Tropical
Storm Wilma became
a Category 3 hurricane
in 2005, creating
$20.6 billion in damage
and leaving 26 dead,
some locals took its
threatening weather
seriously. Others waited
to ask for help, taxing
emergency responders in
Sarasota County.
"About 300 residents
in the county spontane-
ously called for help
evacuating," said Ed
McCrane, Sarasota
County Emergency
Management chief.
"There were already
350 people with special
needs ... preregistered
who we were in the
middle of transporting
to shelters. When we
were done picking up
those who preregis-
tered, we began picking
up people who called
in at the last minute.
Those last-minute calls
for help before a hur-
ricane really clog up the
system.
"We have a strategic
strike team that picks
up those residents
who are registered
with Emergency
Management and takes
them to special-needs
shelters if they require
medical attention, or
to a regular shelter if
they don't have reli-
able transportation,"
McCrane said, adding
that standard hurricane
shelters provide first
aid, not medical or
nursing assistance.
McCrane encour-
ages all residents with
special needs who are
homebound, have no
transportation, are on a
special diet, need a safe
place during a hurricane
or require limited medi-
cal care and oxygen,
to register ASAP if they


know they need help
evacuating.
Residents can fill
out an online form or
have one sent to them.
Based on individual
needs, they will be
taken to a shelter with
a generator backup
system, oxygen, hos-
pital cots and other
medical equipment and
personnel, McCrane
said. The county sends
SCAT or school buses,
or an ambulance, to the
home to pick up the
registered individuals
when an evacuation or-
der is rendered before a
hurricane.
McCrane said resi-
dents should consider
evacuating to a hospital
only if they require con-
stant medical attention.
"Not all hospitals
take evacuees," he said.
"Sarasota Memorial
Hospital does, but
has limited beds for
evacuees. Englewood
(Community) Hospital
does not."
McCrane urges all
residents to know their
hurricane- evacuation
zones. Before anticipat-
ed hurricanes, emer-
gency-management
officials will announce
which zones must
evacuate.
"If you don't know
where your evacua-
tion zone is, it's going
to be confusing while
listening if your area is
going to be evacuated,"
McCrane said. "So if
you live in evacua-
tion Zone B and they
are evacuating Zone
A, you don't have to
go until they call for
Zone B residents to go.
Hurricane evacuation
zones are listed on your
tax bill and online (at
www.scgov.net/kyz/
KnowYourZone.aspx)."

Steppin' out with Venice Area Young Professionals


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Don't let the high num-
ber of seniors in Venice
fool you there are plenty
of young people thriving in
the community.
Just ask the 160
members of Venice Area
Young Professionals, a
local group composed of
21- to 40-year-olds.
The 2010 census
showed the total popula-
tion of the city of Venice at
20,748, with 11,819 people
age 65 and older, and
1,431 between the ages
of 21 and 40. Even more
local people in that age
category live just beyond
the boundaries of the city
in Nokomis, Osprey and
other unincorporated
areas of the county.
Stefan Rayer, Ph.D., re-
search demographer for
the Bureau of Economic
and Business Research at
the University of Florida,
said the 2010 total
population figures for
the city show an increase
of 16.8 percent over the
2000 figures of 17,764,
and a 5 percent decrease
in the 21- to 40-year-old
category from a popula-
tion of 1,506 in 2000.
"A lot of people think of
Venice as an older person's
community, but there
are a lot of young profes-
sionals here, single and
married, who are quite
active," said Kim Phillips,
advertising representative
for the Venice Gondolier
Sun and VAYP chair.
"Through Venice Area
Young Professionals,
we socialize, network
professionally and
volunteer on projects in
the community."
Now in its sixth year,
VAYP is making its mark
as a friend to its members
and the community. It
hosts an annual beach
bash for members and
their families; held its first
5K run this year (the April 1
Fool's Run); and does a
cleanup of the roadway
in front of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce at
597 South Tamiami Trail.
Janis Fawn, an associate
member of the chamber
and a board member,
serves as the liaison toVAYP,
reporting to the board on
VAYP activities to ensure
its support and getting
feedback and suggestions.
"I am always impressed
with the energy and
enthusiasm of the Young
Professionals group," she
said. "Things can and do
get done."
According to Fawn, the
organization's community
activities center around
civic improvement.
"The Young Professionals
want Venice to be the
place where their children
will thrive, so they are in-
vesting their time to make
that a reality," she said.
Fawn encourages
young professionals to
join the group.
"Any member of the
chamber who has employ-
ees in the 21 to 40 range
can enroll them as Young
Professionals," she said.
"There are a number of
different programs, and of
most interest to employers
is the VAYP professional
development program.
This includes quarterly
workshops, lunch-and-
leamrns and corporate tours.
The skills learned are a
definite benefit back in the
workplace."
VAYP was established by
Michelle Ryan, former staff
member of Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce,
and some Young
Professional-age chamber
members in 2006 as a divi-
sion of the chamber.
"They recognized a
need and demand for the


chamber to reach out to
our younger demograph-
ics," said John Ryan,
VACC president and CEO.
"VAYP is a dynamic
and vital part of our
chamber's mission. They
provide our younger
business leaders avenues
for professional develop-
ment and community
involvement, as well as
business and social net-
working opportunities.
"VAYP has become a
resource for our cham-
ber. One of their past
chairs, Adam Carter, has
recently been nomi-
nated as the Venice Area
Chamber's 2012-13 vice
chair, putting him in line
to lead the chamber in
the near future," he said.
In keeping with a
business model, VAYP has
mission and vision state-
ments, which are posted on
its website www.vayp.org.
Its mission is "To unite,
lead and encourage
involvement to create a
vibrant and prosperous
community."
VAYP's vision says:
"We envision a diverse,
vibrant and prosperous
cultural and business
community through the
initiatives of Venice Area
Young Professionals."
Joining the group is
relatively easy, according
to Phillips.
It costs $50 a year to
join for individuals who
belong to the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce,
or whose employer be-
longs. The nonmember
rate is $65 a year.
Member benefits
include free admission to
the monthly networking

WBTT ends summer on high note


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Once again, West Coast
Black Theatre Troupe
brought the audience to
its feet Aug. 24, this time
with its rousing perfor-
mance of music from the
1960s.
In July, an all-female
cast performed music
from the '70s. This
month the WBTT men
are trying to outshine the
girls, Nate Jacobs said
in a press release about


"The Fabulous 5."
So moved by the songs
and antics of the troupe,
many theatergoers were
jumping out of their seats
to dance in the aisles or to
give a standing ovation.
Jacobs, artistic director
of the troupe, not only
wrote the lively show
and adapted the music,
he brought his talents to
the performance stage
as well.
During the dance rou-
tines, he and long-stand-
ing troupe members


Chris Eisenberg, Michael
Mendez and Leon Pitts
II, along with Barry Byrd,
making his debut on
the WBTT stage, wowed
the crowd with dancing
and singing to Motown
music and other songs
of the '60s that included
"Chain Gang," "Twisting
the Night Away" and
the great "Higher and
Higher" for the finale.
At the end of the first
act, Jacobs carefully sand-
wiched in the Sam Cooke
song "A Change is Gonna


Come," which reflected
the civil rights movement
of the '60s. The second act
picked up with happier
music and good times.
Jacobs also used his
storytelling skills to
create a storyline to
introduce each of the
15 songs. The story's
thread is that of four
seasoned musicians
grooming their group's
newest member por-
trayed by the youngest
troupe member, Chris
Eisenberg. Of course,


by the story's end and
the end of the show
Eisenberg has proved he
has all the right stuff as
a full-fledged member of
"The Fabulous 5."
Music Director James
Dodge II led Todd
Bellamy on piano, Jamar
D. Camp on auxiliary
keys, James Dodge II on
bass and Xavier Murray
on drums, and all are
credited with keeping up
the tempo throughout
both energetic acts.
Michael Pasquini was


lighting designer; Barry
Byrd served as technical
director; Etienne "EJ"
Porter engineered the
sound; Juanita Munford
managed the stage; and
Myllanna McKinnon was
house manager.
"The Fabulous 5"
plays until Sept. 2 at the
theater, 1646 10th Way,
Sarasota. Tickets are
$29.50 and are available
online at www.wbttsrq.
org or by calling the box
office at 941-366-1505.

Seaweed enhances beach wildlife viewing


By BILL DUNSON
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
Although beaches are
generally thought of
as a place for summer
recreational swimming
and general relaxation
for humans, they are
also a remarkable place
to observe the special ad-
aptations of the creatures
that are able to live in
this strenuous habitat
that is alternately wet
and dry.
During a brief family
visit to our winter Florida
home, I had a chance
to observe an unusual
feature of the beach a
lot of drift algae, primar-
ily sargassum weed.
This is likely just a
natural consequence
of the recent storm,
although the abundance
of such algae (especially


Snowy plover on Palm Island.

red algae) may also be
enhanced by the runoff
of nutrients from human
activities.
Humans may consider
this algae a nuisance
but the birds appear to
use it to search for small
critters. In any case, it


will soon enough dry up
and become part of the
debris along the upper
beach and it poses no
health threat, unlike red
tide.
There were surprising

Make it a safe Labor Day for manatees


FROM SAVE THE
MANATEE CLUB
If boating is in the
plans this long Labor
Day weekend, Save the
Manatee Club urges
practicing "safety first"
for the well-being of fel-
low boaters and endan-
gered manatees.
Collisions with boats
continue to be the
leading known cause of
manatee injuries and
deaths.


"In the past five
years, the number of
watercraft-related deaths
from January to July has
remained relatively the
same," said Courtney
Edwards, Save the
Manatee Club's staff
biologist.
Since manatees must
surface to breathe and
they prefer shallow
waters, the club reminds
boaters to observe all
manatee speed zones
and caution areas in


manatee habitat to
reduce the risk of boating
collisions with these
marine mammals. Report
manatee zone violations
and manatee injuries
to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission by calling
their hotline immediately
at 888-404-3922.
Save the Manatee Club
encourages boaters to be
proactive by using the
club's free yellow public
awareness banners


that state, "Please Slow:
Manatees Below." The
banners alert other
boaters to manatees in
the area and can help to
avoid potentially harm-
ful situations. Ninety
percent of Florida's
manatees bear scars
from collisions with
motorized vessels.
Free shoreline property
signs and weatherproof
boat decals are also
available from Save the
Manatee Club. They


encourage boaters to
slow down and also
feature the FWC hotline
number for reporting
injured manatees.
Boaters can request a
"Boating Safety Packet,"
which contains the
boat decal and a newly
designed waterproof
card that was created
in conjunction with the
FWC and the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service.
Laminated with a hole
in the corner so it can


be easily hung and kept
on board any vessel, the
waterway card features
simple tips to protect
manatees. Information
on the card is provided in
English, French, Spanish
and German, so it is
suited for Florida's many
visitors.
"We encourage boaters
and waterfront property
owners to take advantage
of our free manatee

SKY Academy joins STEMsmart initiative


FROM GULF COAST
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

SKY Academy, the
wellness-focused public
charter middle school
at South County Family
YMCAs Venice branch, is
the latest school to join
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation's STEMsmart
initiative.
As a STEMsmart
school, SKY will benefit
from new technology
for students, such as
TI-Nspire handheld
devices for use in math
classes, along with the
teacher training needed
to integrate it into their
classrooms. SKY also
will participate in other
STEMsmart activities
including additional pro-
fessional development
for teachers, Gulf Coast's
annual STEMsmart
Summit for students
and summer math and
science camps.
"SKY Academy was cre-
ated to be cutting-edge


and forward-thinking,"
said Dr. Oleh A. Bula,
principal of SKY
Academy. "Being a
STEMsmart school is
the next step in our
evolution."
"Students at SKY learn
everything through the
lens of wellness, so the
integrated approach
of STEMsmart is a
great match," said Teri
A. Hansen, president
and CEO of Gulf Coast
Community Foundation.
Gulf Coast helped
South County Family
YMCA launch SKY
Academy with a start-up
grant in 2010.
SKY Academy is open
to sixth-, seventh- and
eighth-grade students. For
enrollment information,
call 941-244-2626 or go to
www.SKYattheYcom.
STEMsmart is a
multiyear partnership
between Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
and the Sarasota and
Charlotte county school


districts to transform
teaching and learning in
science, technology, en-
gineering and math. The
initiative began in 2010
with eight secondary
schools in Venice, North
Port and Englewood,
a core group that SKY
Academy now joins.
In addition, compo-
nents of the STEMsmart
initiative, such as
teacher training and
classroom technology,
have been expanded to
other schools throughout
Sarasota County.
Early in year three
of a five-year commit-
ment to STEMsmart,
Gulf Coast has invested
more than $1.6 million
into the initiative so
far. That support has
leveraged over $1 million
in additional funding
through donor gifts,
business partnerships,
technology contribu-
tions and school district
investments. Learn more
at STEMsmart.org.

Safe Children Coalition seeking foster volunteers


FROM SAFE
CHILDREN COALITION

The Sarasota YMCA
oversees all child wel-
fare cases in DeSoto,
Manatee and Sarasota
counties. The Y and its
subcontracted agencies
provide a continuum of
child welfare services for
children who have been
abused, neglected or
abandoned, and together
they are known as the
Safe Children Coalition.


The Safe Children
Coalition is a commu-
nity coalition blending
available resources
to assist abused and
neglected children and
their families in reaching
permanency in a safe
and stable environment.
You can foster hope for
a child in several ways;
even the smallest amount
of time or money given
can help to shape a child's
life and foster hope for
their future.


You can help by
volunteering your time to
a wide range of activi-
ties such as babysitting,
mentoring, providing job
skills training, providing
transportation and many
other small projects.
Donations are another
way to help foster hope
for a child. This does not
have to be in the form
of a financial donation,
but could be a neces-
sary item such as car
seats, bicycles, clothing,


children's books and
movies, birthday gifts
and furniture, just to
name a few. Or you can
become a sponsor of
summer camps, sports
camps, gymnastics class-
es, cheerleading teams,
arts and dance programs
or other extracurricular
activities.
By making the choice
to provide a safe and
stable environment for
a child, you are shaping
their future and giving


them an opportunity to
grow, thrive and feel true
love and confidence.
Every child needs to feel
loved and appreciated.
You can choose to be
a foster parent for a
short time or become
an adoptive parent to a
loving child that will be
eternally grateful for the
openness and kindness
of your heart.
Foster parents can
become licensed for one
child or several children.


They can choose to care
for infants, toddlers,
school-aged children or
teens. Then can commit
to one child for one year
or many children for
many years. They may
choose to foster only,
adopt at some point or
a combination of both.
They all have one thing
in common: the desire to
foster hope for children.
For more information
or to volunteer, call
866-661-5656.

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

SK Q 104 v 7 oAK Q 63&K 84

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 V1 Dbl* Pass
*Negative, for takeout
What do you bid now?

A The bidding could hardly have
developed better for you. Partner's
negative double has at least four
spades and a good hand, and slam is
in the air. Make a jump splinter of
three hearts showing a singleton in
the bid suit and a good spade suit, and
await developments.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:
4695 v Q42 oAQ9424A93


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1A Pass 20
2v Pass 2NT
30 Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass
Pass


A You were headed for three no
trump, but partner has shown a three-
suited hand with a singleton club.
Three no trump is no longer appeal-
ing and, since we want to be in game,
five diamonds seems the logical
alternative.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4 A976v K8 0 AKJ74693


The biddin has proceeded:
SOUTH EST NORTH
10 Pass 14
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A You have a good hand in support
of spades, but it does contain six los-
ers and there is as yet no reason to
expect partner to cover three of them.
Invite partner to bid game with a rea-
sonable hand by making an invita-
tional jump raise to three spades.


Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

*AKJ73 r J7 o 8746 K Q 65


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
V1 Pass 16
2NT Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A Partner should have some 17-18
points so you are borderline for pro-
ceeding to slam. However, your jack
of hearts could be worth its weight in
gold, so we would take our chances
with six no trump.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

696 v KQJ9522 A95 *&84

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

A With only 10 points in high cards,
a two-level overcall is definitely
risky. However, the quality of your
long suit is such that we would ven-
ture two hearts. Don't let the oppo-
nents have the right of way unchal-
lenged.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
S985 J98620o A84.KJ6

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

A Overcalling with such a poor suit
invites disaster. There are so many
holdings where the opponents buy
the hand and, should partner lead a
heart, he might be presenting them
with a trick they could not make oth-
erwise. Pass.

Weeki Wachee, from roadside attraction to state park


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Week Wachee Springs State Park began
as one of Florida's first roadside attrac-
tions.
Unlike Floridaland in Osprey and Circus World
near Orlando, Weeki Wachee survived.
Mermaids have been at Weeki Wachee for
more than 65 years, smiling through countless
underwater shows for appreciative audiences
in the park's underground theater. Perhaps the
72-degree water preserved them.
The first show was performed in 1947 after
former Navy SEAL trainer Newton Perry discov-
ered the site. He cleared the spring of assorted
junk that been dumped there and developed
the air hoses which deliver compressed air
that made the shows possible. The hoses are
hidden within the underwater sets for access by
the mermaids during shows. Another challenge
for the mermaids is the stead 5 mph current in
the 100-foot wide area of the spring where they
perform some 16 to 20 feet below the surface
while wearing their weighty tails --yet another
challenge. According to information provided by
the park, 117 million gallons of water bubbles up
from the spring each day.The water eventually
makes its way via the Weeki Wachee River into
the Gulf of Mexico about 12 miles away. The first
"theatre" had just 18 seats. Esther Williams came
to a show. So did Elvis.


A few years ago, the park was in danger of
closing but the mermaids joined forces with
the city's mayor (a former mermaid) and Weeki
Wachee became a state park. These days the
mermaids are as popular as ever. They have
been on countless television shows and even
flew to Gatlinburg to perform at the Ripley attrac-
tion there in 2009 and 2010. They were such a hit
that Ripley acquired its own mermaids and offers
daily shows in a special 20-foot deep tank. Weeki
Wachee has its original natural springs and the
present 500-seat theater built sometime in the
1960s when the attraction was owned by ABC.
Trained on SCUBA gear, the mermaids seem to
live and breathe below the water as they grace-
fully perform their themed musical shows.
Former mermaids will return for special shows
Sept. 1, 2 and 3; Oct. 20, 21, 27 and 28; Nov. 24
and 25; and Dec. 8-9 and 15-16. These special
shows often play to standing-room-only crowds, a
park spokesman said.
Located north of Tampa at the intersection
of U.S. 19 and State Road 50 in Spring Hill, the
spring is worth the trek for more than just the
mermaids. These days, the admission price of
$13 for adults and $8 for children 6-12 includes
manatees, turtles and access to Buccaneer Bay
water park and riverboat cruises on the Weeki
Wachee River. Each summer, there are weekend
training camps for little mermaids age 7 to 14.
Last spring the park announced a Sea Diver

Hopes set on the Titanic Award


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The styles range from kayaks to barges, but
at this race, all the boats have one thing
in common they're made completely of
cardboard.
"Captain Rick was a member of the Englewood
Jaycees and started the Cardboard Boat Races 12
years ago," said Bart Tracy, who is in charge of this
year's event. "He always dresses up as a pirate and
gets up there with a microphone to organize the
race. He's a very big personality, and everyone who
has competed in the race for years knows him."
The race itself is conducted as part of the
Englewood Pioneer Days, a family festival that
is held to celebrate the birthday of Englewood,
and is dedicated to the town's original pioneers.
Participants must build their boats to the contest
specifications, and can use paddles, oars or sails
to propel the boats through the water.
As far as what the boats are made of, the list of
components is pretty simple.
You're allowed to use cardboard, duct tape,
paints and sealers,"Tracy said. "But the trick is
paper towels it makes basically a paper mache
cover for the boat."
Obviously, the boats need to be seaworthy, and
must be able to hold one to six people for the race.
Tracy said one of the best ways to make the boat's
hull watertight, is to soak paper towels in paint and
apply in a couple of layers. The blue shop towels
work best, but any sturdy paper towel will do.
'We also encourage recycling,"Tracy said. "We
want them to go dumpster diving for cardboard,
and to reuse their old boats."
There are three race divisions for the card-
board boat sailors, and they're based on age
categories. The first is the Pram division, which
is free for ages 10 and under. Tracy's company,
Lasbury-Tracy Realty, has sponsored this part of
the race for years.
The Sunfish sailors, at ages 11 through 15, are
the next division. And the last is the World Cup,


-

which includes everyone else. Tracy said that is
the category in which many local restaurants and
bars will be competing.
At this year's event, Tracy has planned some-
thing extra for in-between the races.
"Captain Marian, of Grande Tours, is bringing a
trailer load of stand-up paddleboards, and they're
outrageously fun,"Tracy said. "A course will be set
up and we'll have races with them, too."
Tracy said cardboard boat racers can register
right up until the day of the event, but they should
try to get there early He added that he's hoping
for, not only a lot of race participants this year, but

Parade planners mad


- about hats


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Englewood's famous Pioneer Days Parade,
scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Monday,
will feature hats of every size, shape and
color imaginable.
Why hats?
According to Pioneer Days Parade Chairman,
Jean Airey, the theme "Hats Off to Englewood"
honors those who organized the first Pioneer
Days celebration which was designed to bring
citizens together. Englewood was (and still is) an
unincorporated town that straddles two coun-
ties. Planners 40 years ago wished to reinforce
a strong sense of community by bringing people
together in one place each year.
Hats were important, and as well as being
fashionable, hats were worn as protection from
the sun. There was no air conditioning in those
days and no such thing as sunscreen," explained
Airey, who believes that a parade was and still
is a great way for people to demonstrate true
community spirit. Today's parade planners invite


people of all ages to take part in this year's event
by simply wearing a hat.
A Mad Hatter will select "crazy-hatted" people
to participate in a Crazy Hat contest. Mad Hatter
Alan Adamson read about Pioneer Days in the
newspaper and volunteered. With the help of
artists from the Arts Alliance of Lemon Bay, he
fashioned an outrageous hat to help him stand
out in the crowd. All parade entries, whether a
float or a cart, a band or a boat, will be eligible for
a trophy. Alliance President, Stephanie Borchard,
announced that this year, a "walking float" of hat
wearers will parade along the route as a group.
Individual or business sponsors will award 10
trophies, all artistic treasures created by Alliance
members. This year's award categories focused
on things worthy for "Hats Off" such as: best use
of theme, funniest, best youth entry, Englewood
history, boats, water life, most spirited, most mu-
sical, most patriotic, green, recycling, eco assets,
and most original (not necessarily on theme).
Artists sponsored several hat-making workshops
at their 452 W. Dearborn St. location, and it's not


too late to call Judy Briscoe (the r:gro.:p's vice
president) at 941-497-5667 to sign .1p ,:,r iasl.

Kids fishing tournament

returns to Tom Adams Bridge


PROVIDED BY JEAN AIREY

Pioneer Days tradition, the Michael
O'Donnell Memorial Fish-A-Thon returns
for the third year on Sunday, Sept. 2 at the
Tom Adams Fishing Pier.
Experienced fishermen and local celebrity fish-
ing guides from around the community will be at
the event to make this a great time for the younger
ones.
Cathy Redman organized this tournament in
2010 in memory of her son.
"During that First Annual Michael O'Donnell
Memorial Fish-A-Thon I was walking the pier and
noticed how the families were enjoying their time
together," Redman said. "I overheard parents say
that this was the first time their child fished. I was
amazed at the statement and thrilled that we all
can be part of our community's memories. I be-
lieve the simple things in life can make memories
to be cherished forever."
There will be awards given for longest fish,
shortest fish, ugliest fish, heaviest fish, most
unusual catch and the most-caught fish.
Capt. Chris O'Neill of Tail Chaser Charter
Services will present fishing tips and safety
information.
O'Neill is a senior guide, outdoor writer and
producer/co-host of "The Reel Saltwater Outdoors
Radio Show."
Assisting O'Neill will be Capt. Jesse McDowall,
owner and operator of Florida Inshore Xtream
(FIX) Charters. McDowall is a co-host on The Reel
Saltwater Outdoors Radio Network.
Redman says she has been amazed and awed
at the support the kids fishing event has gener-
ated from the fishing community.
"We've got the best volunteers in the world,"
she said. "We couldn't host a safe and enjoyable
day without the great volunteers and the com-
munity donations."
The Lemon Bay Sunrise Rotary has stepped
up again this year with donations. Taylor Meals of
The Corner Market is helping with bait, and Glen
Murphy of Sampan Screen Printing is donating
the printing on the T-shirts.
Kids 12 and under can participate. The event
is free to the young participants. The first 100
anglers to pre-register by Aug. 15 will receive a
free T-shirt, so early registration is important.
Registration forms and information are avail-

Allstar Paintball sponsors games at area park


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Although paintball is popular in their
countries, two foreign exchange students
didn't have anyone to play with. Recently,
they were excited to play for the first time in a
local park.
Pierre Marguet from France and Iniga Uriarte
from Spain, both 16, were hosted by North Port
resident, Randall Anderson, a retired Army
military policeman. The teenagers and Anderson
joined a group of enthusiastic players at the
YMCA Dotzler Park, 22801 Bayshore Road, Port
Charlotte.
From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday and
Sunday, Allstar Paintball shop sponsors paintball
games at the park. Owner Jim Senseman has
played paintball for more than 17 years.
"Paintball games are a safe alternative to the
days when real metal BBs were used in guns,"
Senseman said. "Kids 10 and over may play with
a signed waiver by parent or guardian. Some of
our players are in their 50s and 60s. The average
length of play is about four hours."
"Paintball is an exciting outdoor participation
sport, good exercise and a quality father/son ac-
tivity," Steve Feineigle said. He and his 9-year-old
son, Alex, intend to keep playing.
Players compete in teams to eliminate op-
ponents by tagging them with capsules known
as paintballs.The marble-sized capsules are
painted on the outside with various colors and
thicknesses which determine their markability.
The fill inside is non-toxic, water soluble and


biodegradable, and usually rinses out of clothing
with mild soap. The paintballs are propelled from
a paintball marker (gun).
There are various versions of the challeng-
ing and fast-paced games, but speedballl" and
"woods ball" are the games played at the park.
Battery powered guns are used in speedball,
whereas guns used in woods ball, a slower
paced game, use compressed air or CO02.
For safety, players must wear masks. Ap-
parel should be long-sleeve shirts and jeans.
Some players prefer to wear camouflage-type
uniforms.
Between games, the players take breaks to
check equipment, get more paintballs, and have
a snack and beverage while they share stories
about the thrill of victory and usually funny stories
of agonies of defeat. Win or lose, everyone has a
good time and looks forward to the next game.
Douglas Young and his sons, Michael, 17,
and Stephen, 13, have been playing paintball for
about two years. Douglas heard about the game
from his sons' school friends who had paintball
birthday parties.
"The staff here makes sure the playing envi-
ronment is safe," Douglas said. "As
a parent, that's really important." Michael
said "It's fun to come out here to experience
combat-type scenarios without the fear of
getting killed or injured in real combat
situations."
Staff members, Shane Surprenant and Mat-
thew Sutton, are in charge of field maintenance
and referee/safety. Tracy Carey has worked for


Players and staff before a paintball game at YMCA Dotzler Park in Port Charlotte.


Allstar for three years, and is responsible for
registration and sales.
"Paintball is better than video games because it
brings families together. Siblings and parents get to
shoot each other. Everyone is equal," Carey said.
Sensemen claims that about 20 percent
of the players are women who compete equally
with men. "Being able to think quickly and deci-
sively is what makes you a star in paintball," he
stated.
Besides a character-building sport, paintball


players learn about teamwork, gain self-con-
fidence and develop leadership abilities while
having fun. Some players claim that playing
paintball can be a great stress reliever.
Allstar Paintball shop sells and rents paintball
equipment. Also sold are skateboards, skim-
boards and a variety of apparel.The shop is
located at 1825 Tamiami Trail, Unit F-1,
Port Charlotte. Business hours are
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
For more information, call 941-235-7868.

it here," Bill said. "Our Philly subs are as authentic
as those in Philadelphia where I've eaten them
many times when I visit my brother."

Fine wine finds a home


By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
In this economy, Punta Gorda's downtown
merchants have to be creative to get people
into their stores. Evidence of that can be found
in the building housing Tiki's Clothing, which, yes,
is a clothing store, but it's much more and getting
more so all the time.
Tiki's owner Tara Nemec still carries clothing
like Boho Chic and name-brand jewelry and
handbags by Brighton. Added to the mix in this
eclectic shop is home decor and accessories and
other unique items too numerous to list.
In the back of the store is Carrie's Design
Studio, a successful interior design business run
by her mother, Carrie, who happens to be a wine
connoisseur. Right outside the entrance to her
studio, Carrie has just opened another business
- Wine of Design where customers can buy
retail wines not available anywhere else.
Her primary supplier is Big Crush Wine
Distributors, a wholesale wine supply business
operated by husband Matt and son Nick that sup-
plies restaurants and hotels locally and through-
out Florida. The store at 105W. Marion Ave. is
definitely a family affair.
Why open a wine shop?
That's easy for Carrie Nemec to answer. She's
a firm believer in downtown retail and has been a
wine lover for years.
'We're just trying every angle we can think
of to get downtown going," she said. 'We're just
plugging away."
Because of her love of the grape, she's trav-
eled with her husband and son all over the world
in search of boutique wines produced by small
vineyards.
"People are drinking these wines in local
restaurants, but there was no place to buy them
retail," she said. "They are not in the ABC store or
Publix. That's why they're so special."'
It's not a surprise then that Carrie buys most
of the 64 wines on display at Wine of Design from
the 300-odd varieties Big Crush stocks.
"I know a lot about these wines," she said.
"I've been to the vineyards, and I know their
stories. They are all boutique wines, and a lot of
them have never been sold in the state before. If
people have a question or just tell me what they
like, I can generally have it here in one day."
Wine of Design sells wines from California,
France, Spain, Argentina and Chile, and don't let
the boutique description scare you away. Nemec
has wines that fit the size of your pocketbook,
from $12 all the way up to $75 for serious aficio-
nados and special occasions. Better yet, Carrie
said there is not a direct correlation between
price and quality.
"Once a wine gets rated, the price goes up,"
she said.
Serious wine lovers should think about joining
the Wine of Design Wine Club. Stop in at the
store to register. Members get two bottles of
wine a month at various prices depending on the
membership level, plus tasting notes and food
recommendations.


in Punta Gorda


Wine of Design is located at the back of Tiki's Clothing, owned by Carrie Nemec's daughter, Tara.


"Join our wine club, and get wines you've
never tasted before," she said.
Members also receive discounts on bottle pur-
chases, the good selection of wine accessories
the store carries, as well as other products.
Perhaps the best perk is free entry to the wine
tasting Nemec plans to start in September.
She's lined up heavy hitters like Kirk Venge, rated
by Food & Wine magazine as one of the top 20
winemakers in the world, and Enkidu Wine's Phil
Stahle, a famous Sonoma winemaker.
People new to wine will feel comfortable in
Wine of Design. Carrie and Tara are more than
willing to take the time to make sure a novice
leaves with the right bottle. Each wine also has
a card with a description, taste notes and often
a rating by Robert Parker, the best-known wine
connoisseur in the United States. If you want to
know more, the cards have a QR code you can
scan with your smart phone or tablet computer to
access even more information.
During summer, Wine of Design at Tiki's Cloth-
ing and Carrie's Interiors, 105W. Marion Ave., is
open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through
Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Call
941-505-7444 for more information.

Chef Tony Duboulay Suncoast Cafe


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When Tony Duboulay was growing up on
the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, he
wasn't all that interested in becoming
a chef. As a matter of fact, from a young age, he
was already set on a totally different career path.
"I was interested in being a mechanic," he said.
"My uncle had a garage in the Caribbean and I
wanted to work for him."
In the islands, the school system is structured
a little differently, and most students graduate
from the equivalent of our high school at the
age of 16. By the time Duboulay was 17, he had
developed a new passion cooking.
"I went to a culinary trade school," he said.
"Then after I graduated, I worked for a shipping
company Bernuth lines out of Miami."
Chef Tony found that he enjoyed cooking on the
cruise ships and spent several years doing just
that. His home was still in St. Lucia, though, and it
was there that he met his future wife Debbie.
"I'm a travel agent and I spent a lot of time in
Saint Lucia," Debbie Duboulay said. "I actually
lived there for a while and that's how I met him
(Chef Tony)."
After they married, they opened a restaurant
in St. Lucia, but post 9/11, the islands, like
everywhere else, experienced a sharp drop-off in
tourism. Sometime later, the Duboulays decided
to close up their restaurant and move to Florida.
With Chef Tony's culinary background, it was only

natural that they would look to use his skills here,
too. They decided to open a new restaurant in
Venice.
"We were actually looking for a catering place,"
Chef Tony said. "I used to be the chef in a Cuban
Restaurant called La Tropicale, so my restaurant
here is a mixture of Cuban and Caribbean."
They found restaurant space as a direct result
of Debbie's travel agent experience at an air-
port. The Duboulays opened the Suncoast Caf6
inside the terminal at the Suncoast Air Center

Rolling at the Venice YMCA Skate Park


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
As the parent of a teen or pre-teen, it can
sometimes be hard to find a place where
they like to go that you feel comfortable
with allowing them to go. TheYMCA has always
been one of those places.
At a YMCA, you can be assured that your child
will not only have a good time, but will be in a
safe, alcohol- and drug-free environment. And
in the back lot of the Venice branch of the South
CountyYMCA, there is something more that is
sure to attract the attention of parents and kids
alike.
The YMCA Skate Park has been in Venice
for about six years. Inside a fenced-in, concrete
covered area, there are multiple ramps, pipes and
other structures that skateboarders and scooter
riders will love.
Sam Joynson is a 16 year old from New Jersey
who visits Venice with his family several times a
year. A few years ago, he discovered the Venice
Skate Park and makes sure to stop in at least
once when he's in town.
"The skate park I go to in New Jersey is a little
bigger," Joynson said. "But there are a lot of boxes
and hubbas (ledges) in this one."
One of the regular visitors to the park is
12-year-old Will Coons. He said that during the
summertime he usually comes four days a week
- staying for about three hours at a time.
"It's close to my house and the freeze pops
they give out are nice," he said. "What's great
about skating is that I like going fast and getting
high in the air."
There are plenty of opportunities for getting
up in the air at the YMCA Skate Park. It's open
every day except for Sunday and it's available to
everyone, not justYMCA members.
'We have notarized forms for whatever age
comes here," said Mollie Kelly, who supervises
the skate park. "You take the completed form to
the YMCA front desk and they give you a photo
ID. There's no charge all you have to do is be
courteous and appreciative."
Protective equipment is required to skate, and
that would include safety helmets and hard knee
and elbow pads. And if a skater arrives at the
facility without that equipment, chances are Kelly
will have some spare pads or helmet to borrow.
'We've had a lot of people donate equipment
for kids to use," she said, "but we can always use
more. We take donations here for knee and elbow
pads, helmets, skateboards and scooters."
One of the local skate shops has also been
very generous with their equipment and time at
the skate park.

Justin Lentini, 15, rides his scooter at the YMCA
Skate Park in Venice.

"We partner with Ollie's (Wake-Skate-Swim) for
their skate fundraisers," said Mischa Kirby, market-
ing director for the Venice YMCA. "When they were
here in June for their big event, they refurbished
the skate park and worked a lot with the kids."
The event she was referring to was a
fundraiser to benefit the Ronald McDonald
House. It brought in between 50 and 70 riders
and was a big success. Drew Danielo, co-owner
of Ollie's Wake-Skate-Swim, said that his goal for
that event was to raise at least $5,000. The final
total turned out to be close to $6,500.
The turnout and support for the event proved
that there is not only a lot of interest from kids in
the activity of skating, but also from parents in
having a place for those kids to go.
"When the weather gets cooler, it gets crowded
here, these kids just come out of the woodwork,"
Kelly said. "This is a wonderful, safe place for
children to be active and healthy."
TheYMCA Skate Park is open from 4:00 p.m.
until 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m.
to 4:50 p.m. on Saturday, and closed on Sunday.
It is located in the back parking lot of the Venice
YMCA, 701 Center Road, Venice.

The Venetian Waterway Park


E/N/C/V August 29-September 4, 2012


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, GIWW,
stretches from the Mexican border at
Brownsville, Texas, and along the Gulf of
Mexico to St. Mark's Florida. It consists of 1,300
miles of protected waterway, most of it 12 feet
deep and about 125 feet wide. At least 10 miles
of the GIWW wind through the Venice area.
While many southwest Florida residents only
view the GIWW from the bridges as they pass
over it, one of the best ways to take in its beauty
is from the recently completed Venetian Water-
way Park, VWP.
Providing 10 miles of paths along both sides of
the GIWW, the VWP is a smooth surface for walk-
ers, runners and bicyclists to enjoy unparalleled
views of the water.
"The idea of the VWP came about through the
Envision 20/20 Project," said Judy Keeler, presi-
dent of Venice Area Beautification Inc. "It was a
series of meetings that identified priorities on how
to beautify the city."
Venice Are Beautification Inc. states their
mission as making the City of Venice and the
surrounding community a vibrant and attractive


place to call home. To that end, in 1993 they be-
gan in earnest the long process of trying to find a
way to make the Venetian Waterway Park vision
become a reality.
"The project went in fits and starts because we
had to get (zoning) permissions and go out and
raise money," Keeler said. '"We did it in segments
and had a lot of obstacles to overcome. It took
hundreds of thousands of volunteer hours to get
this done."
In May of this year, the last segment of the trail
was dedicated at Caspersen Beach. Now, the
northern trailhead is at the Venice Area Beau-
tification Inc. offices in the 200 block of North
Tamiami Trail, and runs on the western side of
the GIWW all the way down to Caspersen Beach.
If you're on the eastern side of the GIWW, you
can walk or bike ride from the Venice Train Depot,
where the Venetian Waterway Park connects to
the Legacy Trail, down to Shamrock Park and
Nature Center.
All along the trail are plenty of places to sit and
rest or have a picnic. The paths have restrooms
available at the trailheads and there are even
two bridges to cross over the intracoastal if
you should decide you want to travel on the

Since the completion of the Venetian Waterway 'This whole thing was put together
Park, it has been clear that there have been a lot with a combination of private and public partner-
of people out enjoying the trail which means ships," Keeler said. "We had to raise around
more residents and visitors riding and walking $6 million, but it's been a real economic driver
around local businesses, for our area."

Play the rolling of "The Cat"


Come by Bobcat Trail Golf Course in North Port and you'll understand why they say, "It's a BEAUTIFUL day at Bobcat Trail."

The 6,748-yard, par 71 course was originally designed by architect Lee Singletary and former PGA champion Bob Tway. It's one of the few courses in Sarasota County to
have been given a 4.5 star rating by Golf Digest. The facility has been fully renovated, from the greens and bunkers to the enlarged clubhouse. Even the golf cars were updated
and outfitted with GPS. So while your ball may get lost, you'll always know where you are at Bobcat Trail.

"Our course layout is one of the best you'll find," said Bruce Harris, General Manager and one of the golf pros at Bobcat Trail. "It has very large, undulating greens with
hybrid Bermuda grass and plenty of wildlife." On any given day, while playing "The Cat," golfers might be treated to the sight of osprey, eagles, otters, bobcats, all kinds of
bird life as well as alligators sunning themselves on the banks near the water spots, said Harris.

Bobcat Trail is a semi-private club, which means it has both memberships and open tee times available to the public. Many of its 220 members live in the beautiful, gated
Bobcat Trail community that surrounds the course.

PGA instructors are happy to give lessons to beginners who want to start the game or more advanced players who want to improve a part of their game.

The club actively welcomes younger players, too. Their Junior Golf program, for kids aged six and up, starts June 7 and goes for eight weeks, on Thursdays. Several pro
instructors will help the Juniors learn the game.

Before or after play, The Grill Room has snacks, sandwiches, soups and salads. For a quick bite, try spicy wings, Famous Nachos or fried green beans. For lunch, the soup and
sandwich special and the chopped salad you choose your ingredients and have it chopped for you -- are hugely popular.

Bobcat Trail offers special pricing depending on the time of day. Morning play is $45, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. is $35, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. is $27 and after 4 p.m. rates drop to $20.
Prices are reviewed monthly and are subject to change.

Tee times can be made up to seven days in advance, and can be booked 24 hours a day at http://www.bobcattrailgc.com. For questions, to register for the Junior Golf summer
program or for other information, see the website or call 941-429-0500. Bobcat Trail is located at 1350 Bobcat Trail in North Port.

WEST
16
Pass


Opening lead: King of 0

The advantage of having all your
assets in view is of immense help to
declarer. Conversely, having half
your side's values concealed can
cause the defense great hardship.
North's invitational jump rebid
presented South with a major bidding
problem. A pass has much to
recommend it, but South elected to
try three no trump.
West attacked with the king of
diamonds, and declarer was not too


happy with the dummy that hit the
table. Add the ten of clubs to the
North hand, however, and three no
trump would have much better play.
There were about five fast tricks
available and a finesse of the nine of
spades was likely to produce a sixth.
Still, there were chances. Declarer's
first move was to duck the opening
lead in dummy and falsecard with the
six from hand. This simple maneuver
convinced West that his opening lead
had struck gold, and the defender
continued with the queen.
Dummy's ace won, the king of
clubs was allowed to hold and West
captured the continuation of the
queen with the ace. West reverted to
diamonds, and a delighted declarer
won with the jack to find the suit
breaking evenly. After cashing the
long diamond for a spade discard
from the table, a spade was led. West
followed low and dummy's queen
won. Declarer now cashed the jack of
clubs, then threw West in with the
remaining club. No matter what the
defender did, the ace of spades would
be the defenders' fourth and last
trick!

Post-polio syndrome not a REX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and
PosIF I HAPMYOWN /IFIWANT
S CELL PHONE, YOU YOU... I'LL
second attackby polio virus COUL CA CALL
FROM CALIFORNIA! .HEATHER!


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My wife's father is 91 and
was in excellent health
until a month ago. He
began to experience pain.
He barely could rise from
the sitting position. Many
blood tests were run,
and he was referred to an
orthopedic clinic. He un-
derwent a physical exam
from an internal medicine
specialist. He was referred
to a neurologist, who per-
formed an EMG (electro-
myogram, used to detect
nerve-muscle problems).
Since he had polio at
age 34, the neurologist
diagnosed post-polio
syndrome. Will you com-
ment on it? Since the polio
generation is reaching
older ages, I thought it
would be helpful to make
others aware of this illness.
- G.S.
ANSWER: Thanks to
the polio vaccine, many
people know little about
polio or the fear it used
to provoke in people of
all ages. The polio virus
destroys nerve cells that
activate muscles. The
infection causes varying
degrees of paralysis and, in
some instances, death.
Now a percentage of
people who were victims
of polio in the bad old
days are having to deal
with a second blow from
that old infection post-
polio syndrome. It's not a
resurrection of the polio
virus. What happens is
this: Nerves adjacent to
the ones destroyed by the
polio virus took over some
of the duties of the killed
nerves. That allowed many
polio patients to carry on
their lives effectively.
At older ages, those
neighbor nerves are dying
from the strain of having
to do double duty. That
results in a resumption of
pain and weakness in the
affected muscles.
There's no medicine that
rids the burden of post-
polio syndrome. But pain
relief is achievable. Pacing
oneself improves muscle
weakness.
Your father-in-law and
his family can obtain
timely information on this
syndrome from the Post-
Polio Health International,
a group of devoted
people who have dedicated
themselves to spreading
the word about this illness.
Their phone number is
314-534-0475, and they can
be reached on the Internet
at www.postpolio.org.

degeneration. Is Eylea
intended for wet macular
degeneration? R.S.
ANSWER: It is intended
for wet macular degenera-
tion. About 10 percent of
macular degeneration is
the wet variety. Fragile
blood vessels sprout up
behind the retina and
macula, and leak fluid.
If your wife has been
getting good results from
the two older wet macular
degeneration drugs,
Avastin and Lucentis, she
should stick with them.
If not, her doctor might
recommend Eylea. It's
much more expensive
than Avastin.
The macular degenera-
tion booklet provides the
details on this quite-
common eye problem that
shows up at older ages. To
obtain a copy, write: Dr.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
You mentioned fexofena-
dine in connection with
quelling the itchiness of
young children who have
large reactions to mos-
quito bites.
I took it for many,
many years as a prescrip-
tion. I have been told
the manufacturer, Teva
Pharmaceuticals, no
longer makes it.
If it is available, how
do I obtain it? It worked
wonders for my allergies
and for itching. N.K.
ANSWER: Sanofi-
Aventis, the original
manufacturer of that
antihistamine drug, still
makes it under the brand
name Allegra.
It is now available
without a prescription.
You shouldn't have trouble
finding it.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer in-
dividual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his
column whenever possible.

ters at P.O. Box 536475,

The return of pistachio ambrosia


Dear Heloise: Help! I
cannot find your recipe
for pistachio ambrosia,
and my family would like
me to make it! Marilyn
D. in Massachusetts
Oh no, Marilyn! Here
is Heloise's Pistachio
Ambrosia recipe, which
takes just minutes to
make! It is delicious and
probably won't last long!
Gather the following
ingredients:
1 can (16 ounces)
chunky pineapple
1 can (8 ounces)
crushed pineapple
1 small box instant
pistachio pudding mix
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
or pecans
12-16 ounces non-
dairy whipped topping
(thawed)
1 cup miniature
marshmallows
Take the cans of pine-
apple (with juice) and
dump into a medium
mixing bowl. Sprinkle the
instant pistachio pudding
mix over the pineapple
and let it sit for a couple of
minutes to be absorbed.
Gently fold in the
coconut and nuts. Next,
add the whipped topping
and marshmallows. Don't
overmix! Place in the refrig-
erator for at least an hour
or so before eating. So easy,
yet so delicious! Heloise
P.S.: Clip this out right
now and tape it inside a
kitchen cupboard door.

Cake decorating
Dear Heloise: I love to


Hints from Heloise

bake, but I am not very
talented when decorat-
ing cakes and cookies.
One day, I took a cookie
cutter, placed it on top
of the cake I had baked
and used it as a guide to
make pretty patterns with
powdered sugar. Now I am
constantly experimenting
and coming up with more
decorating possibilities
after using sprinkles, frost-
ing, powdered sugar and
even melted chocolate! -
Nancy D. in Tennessee
How creative!
Presentation is important
with desserts. A colorful,
tasty icing can make all
the difference, too. I have
cake decorating ideas
using unique icings in my
Heloise's Cake Recipes
pamphlet, which you can
have by sending $3 and
a long, self-addressed,
stamped (65 cents) enve-
lope to: Heloise/Cake, PO.
Box 795001, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5001. An easy
and simple homemade
icing can be made by
mixing powdered sugar,
cherry juice and a drop of
vanilla and food coloring,
if needed. Spread on your
favorite white or golden
cake. Enjoy! Heloise

Transgender woman must deal

with new, unforeseen change


DEAR ABBY: I am a
confused transwoman. I
have been in a commit-
ted relationship for years
with a woman who knew
me before "the change."
I have lied to myself
for a long time about
what gender I have been
attracted to, and now it's
coming back to haunt me.
As I have gone through
several years changing,
my confidence and emo-
tional depth have grown.
I successfully transitioned
two years ago, and live
and work as a woman.
This means when I go to
clubs and bars with other
girlfriends, I attract male
attention in a positive
way. (I'm attractive and
pass well.)
The problem is, my
attraction to women is
fading and men are now
much more appealing.
My pulse races at the idea
of spending time in the
company of men, but no
longer with women, who
are now more like sisters
than anything else.
My relationship with my
current female spouse has
become that of a house-
mate or female family
member. She was there for
me during my changes,
and now I feel I am evolv-
ing away from her. This
upsets me, and I know
it upsets her because we
have talked about the
possibility that this might
occur. Now I'm worried
about breaking her heart,
but feel if I don't move on,
I will have cheated myself
out of living.
What should I do?
Should I swallow my
feelings and stay with her,
or admit that in order to
feel like a heterosexual
woman I must leave and
be in a relationship with
a man? Help! LOST
ANGEL
DEAR LOST: I discussed
your letter with Denise
Leclair, the executive di-
rector of the International
Foundation for Gender
Education (IFGE), who
tells me that what you're
experiencing is not un-
usual. Transgender people
can be so consumed with
gender issues that they
are sometimes unfocused
on whom they are really
attracted to.


Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: Thanks for
the wonderful letters and
sage advice over the years.
I can't tell you how many
columns I have clipped
and shared.
Some years ago
when I was teaching in
Massachusetts, a dear
friend, Pat, told me about
something she did that
impressed me. Every year
on her birthday, she sent
flowers to her parents
with a note thanking
them for their love and
support. I adopted her
idea.
We have a Mother's Day
and a Father's Day, but
isn't Pat's idea wonderful?
Many parents would be
thrilled to receive flowers
from their child on his or
her birthday, especially
when a note accompanies
the bouquet. After all, the
parents gave the children
life and nurturing. It
seems only right that
children should show
their appreciation at
that special time. Please
share this idea with your
readers. FORMER
TEACHER IN ATHENS,
GA.
DEAR TEACHER:
Thank you for sharing
your friend's tradition.
It's not the first time
I've heard this, but I'm
pleased to share her ter-
rific idea with those who
are receptive.
P.S. If flowers aren't in
the budget, a handwritten
note of appreciation costs
nothing and would be
treasured for a lifetime.


"Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it."
- I Thessalonians 5:24.
Cheer up! God has His hand on you and is not going
to leave you stranded. He who hath begun a good
work in you will continue.
