Self-described 'gangsta' arrested in assault


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

A 21-year-old man
arrested in connection
with the kidnapping
and sexual assault of a
woman in Venice describes
himself as a nondrinking,
nonsmoking gangster who
became a Muslim and
wants to join the U.S. Navy.
Hamza Al Ghani, from


North Port,
is accused
of sexually
assaulting a
25-year-old
woman
Friday after
conning her AL GHANI
into helping
find his lost wallet.
She had been applying
for a job at an East Venice
Avenue restaurant around


4 p.m. and had just exited
the establishment when
Ghani approached her.
He allegedly persuaded
the woman to give him
a ride to a nearby park
"because he lost his wal-
let and money and didn't
want someone to take it,"
according to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
probable cause affidavit.
The woman told


deputies she was hesitant
to give him a ride because
she didn't know him, but
because he seemed sincere,
she eventually agreed.
According to the
affidavit, she drove Ghani
to the Ronald Foxworthy
Campus on Gulf Coast
Boulevard. When he
couldn't locate the wallet,
Ghani asked her to drive
him to a nearby friend's


home where he would pay
her for gas. She agreed.
They drove to a
home in the 400 block
of Nightingale Road in
South Venice and waited
for the friend.
When she went to use
her phone, he asked to
look at it, then placed it
on the floor and suddenly
snatched her forcefully by
placing his hand around


her neck. She complied,
she said, in fear.
The affidavit states that
Ghani then placed a sharp
object against her throat
and told her it was a knife.
He forced the victim to
perform oral sex, continu-
ally making derogatory
comments to her.
He then forced her to

Venice is


getting an 'app


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
The official city of
Venice "app" will officially
be unveiled by Mayor John
Holic at the public launch
party at 10 a.m. Friday,
Oct. 19, at City Hall.
"It will be one of the
first city apps in the Gulf
Coast region," said Jim
Foubister, who created
the app with partner Raj
Dorisamy. Together they
own Your Custom Apps,
678 South Tamiami Trail,
Osprey, and are providing
the service for free.
Apps applications -
are programs available to
owners of smartphones
and tablets. Eighty
percent of the public
between the ages of 18
and 30 have smartphones.
The city of Venice app
will provide a means
of relaying important
information to citizens
about council actions, city
events and safety alerts in
emergencies.
"I wanted my hometown
to be one of the first in
this area to get an app"
said Foubister, who came
up with the idea and
approached Holic. His
company is working with
Pam Johnson, city market-
ing and communications
officer, to help the city join
the smartphone revolution.
"We are so excited to
be one of the first cities
to have an app to share
information with the whole
community," said Johnson.
"Smartphone users will
be able to get news about

are Germany, Australia,

At the launch, Foubister
will outline the benefits of
the app. He plans to hold
meetings to explain the
process of downloading
and sharing the app so
people can benefit from
the free service.
The city will send
Foubister an email
with information to be
disseminated and he will
put it out via the app.
You can arrange for your
smartphone or tablet to
vibrate or beep to alert
you when new informa-
tion is posted.
One of the project
developers has created a
feature allowing the user
to tap on an event listed
on the app screen and
have it automatically sync
with the user's calendar,
said Foubister.
The app will be
financed by Your Custom

Red tide thickening


This aerial photograph shows only a portion of a 35-mile-long red tide algae bloom from southern Sarasota County to northern
Collier County that Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission researchers have been tracking. The effects of the toxic
algae are being felt on Englewood's barrier islands.

County officials monitoring algal bloom


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
An overcast sky Tuesday
may have kept away beach
patrons, but those who
were on the beach caught
the odor of red tide.
Red tide algae concen-
trations are thickening
in Gulf waters off South
Sarasota and Charlotte
counties, according
to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission researchers.
"I've seen it way worse,"
said Sarah Slone, an
Englewood resident who
likes to spend time on the
beach as often as she can.
Slone said she saw only a
few dead fish on the public
beach, generally in small


patches, but she could tell
red tide was in the air and
it made her cough.
Jillene Payne, another
Englewood resident, and
Ohio residents Rocky and
Cindy Goodlett all said
they started coughing
and sneezing when they
first arrived at the beach.
Dead baitfish confirmed
to Payne that red tide was
in the water.
"It's moderately
annoying," Payne said.
On Manasota Key and
the bridgeless Knight
and Don Pedro islands,
Zoe Bass and Brenda
Bossman oversee volun-
teer sea turtle patrols.

Dead pinfish and others have washed up on Englewood's barrier
islands since Sunday, along with other signs of red tide. Don
Pedro Island resident Ken Conner said the effects of red tide
were strengthening Tuesday.


Business taps into charging stations


Kathy Cushing swipes her prepay card at the Centennial Park
electric vehicle recharge station in downtown Venice. Cushing
transports people around the immediate downtown area for
free, and to farther locations for a small fee.


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
The kinks have been
worked out and the
Centennial Park electric
vehicle charging stations
appear to be working fine.
On Friday, Kathy
Cushing of Venice Street
Legal demonstrated just
how easy it is to charge
her six-seat golf-cart
battery.
Simpler, in fact, than
using a regular gas station
pump.
One tap of a ChargePoint


America prepay card on
the station's reader symbol
unlocks a small cover over
an outlet. When the card
is authorized, the station
displays a message indicat-
ing you can insert the plug.
It doesn't start charging
until the station door is
closed again.
When you're done,
simply unplug, close
the station cover, which
will lock, and off you go.
Your card is billed $2.50
per hour. Don't forget to
remove your cord.
Each station serves dual


vehicles. A different con-
nector, which looks like
a mini gas pump handle
in a holster, is used for
electric automobiles.
ChargePoint cards
can be ordered online.
Modern Visa, Mastercard
and other popular charge
cards with a digitized
chip can also be used. If
your current credit card
doesn't have the chip, just
order it from the com-
pany. Most modern credit
cards today automatically
have them, said Kathleen
Weeden, city engineer.


Weeden and Cushing
have become unofficial
partners, with Venice
Street Legal working out
the glitches with the city.
As its preeminent sta-
tion user, Cushing's had
her ups and downs with
the stations. Sometimes
they wouldn't accept her
card. Other times they
wouldn't release her
three-prong electric plug.
At times, only one station
seemed to work. All that
has been ironed out.

County comp plan could get facelift


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Big changes could
be coming soon for the
Sarasota County compre-
hensive plan, which has
not received an update
since 2004.
The Sarasota County
Commission received
input from the county's
Planning Department on
changes that are needed
to the plan, a 1,300-page
document that is a state-
mandated foundation
document adopted and
amended by the commis-
sion. The comprehensive


plan is also a long-range
policy document that's
aimed at directing
growth, anticipating
growth costs and guiding
appropriate infrastruc-
ture development.
Changes in the
Community Act of 2011
have made updates to
the plan necessary. Items
the commission needs to
address include a coastal
element to preserve rec-
reational and commercial
waterfronts, amendment
of transportation policies,
evaluation of land use to
accommodate population
growth and removal of


out-of-date policies.
"At least from my vision,
some of the policies need
to be revisited and at least
discussed but not all of
them," said Commissioner
Nora Patterson.
The state must be
notified of any plan
amendments to address
local and state require-
ments adopted by the
commission in a letter
due April 13. Public hear-
ings on any amendment
changes would take
place prior to the letter
being sent out.
The commission also
discussed streamlining


the plan and doing away
with the bulky document
in its present state. This
would include clarifying
how topics and policies
are connected, integration
of related topics and using
illustrations and photo-
graphs. Commissioner
Joe Barbetta suggested
making the entire plan an
electronic document that
could be accessed using
computers or iPads, simi-
lar to what has been done
in Fort Collins, Colo., and
several other cities around
the country. He said this
was first discussed a few
years ago but no action


has been taken.
"This is more important
than changing the policies
right now," Barbetta said.
"With the iPad apps that
are out there today, we've
got the ability to stream-
line this and make it
more user-friendly. There
are top-notch planners
out there who are 'geeks'
when it comes to these
apps. We need to work
with them, streamline this
thing down and when you
stumble on a policy that
needs to be addressed,
bring that to us. Let's
utilize the talent in the
community to get this


thing done ... quickly."
Patterson was cau-
tiously optimistic about
the format change.
"I'm not saying it's not a
great idea; I just don't want
to spend three or four
years and a million dollars
getting there," she said. "I
want to make sure this is
something that could be
done in a few months with
an investment of staff time
and some outside help if
needed."
Planning officials said
they would be able to
provide a cost update at
a later date.

Data-gathering results presented


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
The results of a two-year
series of data-gathering
workshops about Sarasota
County were presented to
Sarasota County commis-
sioners last week.
Allison Pinto, SCOPE
director of the community
data initiative, explained
that for the last couple of
years, Sarasota County
and SCOPE Sarasota
County Openly Plans for
Excellence have part-
nered with the Community
Data Collaborative. The
completed data initiative
project gives county resi-
dents an opportunity to see
population demographics
and the areas that most


affect their lives.
SCOPE includes residents
and neighborhood groups,
as well as the Sarasota
County School District, the
county health department,
nonprofit organizations
and various city and county
government departments.
Six Community Data 2.0
workshops have been held,
the first a countywide ses-
sion in May 2011, followed
by workshops in North
Port, Sarasota and Venice.
Some workshops focused
on children and older adult
perspectives, others on
health, learning, trans-
portation and the natural
environment.
Pinto said 390 residents
from 70 neighborhoods


around the county partici-
pated in the workshops.
"This is very interesting,
and it's fascinating to see
who participates, who's
involved, and what they're
thinking about the area,"
County Commission Chair
Christine Robinson said.
The North Port session
in March attracted about
40 people, including city
commissioners, commis-
sion hopefuls, civic leaders,
neighborhood representa-
tives, longtime city residents
and an aide from the office
of U.S. Rep. Vemn Buchanan,
R-Longboat Key. At that
workshop, participants
were shown maps and
tables filled with city data.
Workshop participants


looked at different types
of indicators of social
well-being such as "suffer-
ing indicators" of crime,
domestic violence and sub-
stance abuse. Other data
markers include economic
indicators, education and
voting data.
Pinto said 108 partici-
pants went through all 180
indicators used in the study
and determined indicators
such as age, voter turn-
out, public library visits,
income, general health
status, homelessness and
public bus ridership should
be kept for further analysis.
Participants also showed
an interest in the "built
environment," including
such issues as whether


streets are well-lit at night
and whether properties are
clean and well-maintained.
"These findings are
consistent with the 'soul of
the community' findings,
which find that even in
harsh economic times,


the things that tend to
attach any of us to our local
community are a sense of
welcome, the aesthetics of
a place and opportunities
to connect socially," Pinto
said.

County approves


funding agreement


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
The Sarasota County
Commission has
approved a cooperative
funding agreement with
the Southwest Florida
Water Management
District, commonly
known as Swiftmud, for
the Englewood Commu-
nity Redevelopment
Agency's stormwater
retrofit project. The
project is connected
to the West Dearborn
low-impact design and
associated improvements
project.
The stormwater
project will use specially
engineered bio-swales
surrounding West
Dearborn Street 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.
The Veterans Memorial
Freedom Pavilion and
two parking lots are also
part of the project. The
commission approved
a construction contract
with Close Construction
in the amount of
$5.96 million on Aug. 29.
Tuesday's action


amends the original
agreement with Swiftmud
to extend the contract
period, revise the project
schedule and update the
project's budget. This in-
creases the total contract
amount to $7.08 million,
with Sarasota County and
Swiftmud each contribut-
ing $3.54 million.
The commission
passed the contract with
a 4-1 vote. Commissioner
Joe Barbetta was the
dissenting vote.
He was the only
commissioner who voted
against the construction
contract, as well as a
$298,000 contract with
DMK Associates Inc. for
engineering services last
month.
"When it came before
us to approve the design
contract, I said it was
too expensive of a
design and I had lost
faith in the design,"
Barbetta said. "This was
just a consistency vote. I
voted 'no' back then and
I can certainly vote 'no'
to this funding. I want
the project to get done,
but I'm just concerned
there's going to be more
problems ahead."

Blue Alert getting national attention


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
When presidential can-
didate Mitt Romney visited
Sarasota recently, Nokomis
resident Tom Berry was
invited to explain his Blue
Alert project to him.
Four years ago, Berry
began setting up the
Blue Alert National
Notification System,
providing assistance na-
tionwide to law enforce-
ment in the apprehension
of offenders who kill or
seriously injure police
officers. It's a free service
operated in conjunction
with the police, media
and Nixle, a notification
service for law enforce-
ment and government
agencies, using social
networks to notify serving
and retired officers, their
relatives and the public.
Certified by Homeland
Security, Nixle receives
Blue Alerts and continu-
ally forwards information
to Berry.
Expanding his ser-
vices, he is fundraising
to support families of
fallen officers. Recently,
Brandon Steinert has
become a partner in set-
ting up the nonprofit Blue
Alert Foundation with the


mission to serve and pro-
tect the law enforcement
community and advocate
for the passage of Blue
Alert in each state.
Only the appropriate
state agency can issue
a Blue Alert. As with
Amber Alerts, the police
contact the media to
inform the public and
aid law enforcement
officers who are looking
for a known suspect.
With Berry's system that
information goes out
via text messaging and
emails. Florida is one of
17 states participating in
the project.
"In creating this
organization I am just
like part of the media,
contacting citizens
instead of them having
to wait for TV and radio
bulletins," said Berry.
To participate, subscrib-
ers go to www.bluealert.
us and enter their email
address or cellphone
number. He is currently
working on an application
for Blue Alert for smart-
phones and tablets.
In 2008, he was retired
after 31 years military
service and came
across the LEO alert
for law enforcement


officers. Researching it,
he discovered the state
of Texas was launching
a Blue Alert system for
the media based upon
the LEO system. He got
a video from Texas Gov.
Rick Perry, leading Berry
to launch his own Blue
Alert project.
Both President Barack
Obama and Romney sup-
port the implementation
of the Blue Alert system
in every state with the
National Blue Alert Act,
already passed by the
House of Representatives
in May.
Berry has more than
130,000 Twitter followers,
15,000 on Facebook and
more on Linkedln and
Pinterest. He uses his
own keyword seaches on
Google, which searches
every three minutes for in-
formation to disseminate.
"One of our success
stories occurred last year
when the three Tampa
siblings were in trouble
in this state, then went to
Georgia, robbing a bank,
and on to Colorado, where
they were caught," Berry
said. "We gave the timeline
of how they were working
and they got caught."
Sponsorships and


Tom Berry, left, and partner Brandon Steinert check an iPad to see if more Blue Alert messages
are being received by law enforcement agencies.


donations to the Blue
Alert Foundation are
welcome to improve
Berry's communication
and operations system.
Personally funding it since
2008, he now wants the
foundation to take over.
Currently, he has
two computer systems
operating the system
in his Nokomis home,


with an alarm to ensure
he is awakened every
90 minutes to update
the system and send
alerts. His plan is to set
up abase in Venice or
Nokomis, employing staff
for 24-hour monitoring.
Fundraising benefits
will enable the purchase
of bulletproof vests and
walkie-talkies for law


enforcement officers
and giving the widows
and widowers of fallen
officers financial support
of $5,000 immediately
following their loss.

Gallery contest raises $1,100 for pets


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Silky terrier Bugsy, a
dog artist, demonstrated
his painting skills fol-
lowing the annual pet
photo competition,
Raining Cats and Dogs,
organized by Leah and
David Sherman, owners
of Collector's Gallery
and Framery, 114 South
Tamiami Trail on the
island.
Bugsy, owned by Steve
Surchik, took second
place. The winner was
Casper, owned by Kathy
Lehner, who received
a framed photo. Third
place went to Taffy,
owned by Gerri Neely.
All three pets won
"Pawcasso" sessions at
Still Point Studio, where
the pet produced an
original work of art and
each owner received a


gift certificate to BFF Pet
Boutique on West Miami
Avenue.
Forty-three pet own-
ers submitted photos
in the fifth year of the
contest, which ran as
Dog Days of Summer
for two years until the
organizers, responding
to cat lovers, changed
it to Raining Cats and
Dogs.
Winners are based
upon the number of
votes received at 10 cents
per vote. Funds raised
go to the Suncoast
Humane Society. In
expressing special thanks
to the contestants and
all who voted this year,
Leah Sherman said, "It
has always been my
experience when you
ask people to contribute
a little 10 cents per
vote, they exceed your
expectations."


The income in the
first year was $300
in 2007; this year the
event raised a record
$1,100.
"We chose the summer
for this event because
there is very little going
on and it stirs the pot, so
to speak," said Sherman.
"Every year there is
more energy. Initially,
the competition at-
tracted 15 to 20 entries.
At Christmas, there are
plenty of other activities
and at Halloween, there
is a wonderful event for
owners to dress their
dogs."
Claire Berten, Suncoast
Humane Society director
of events and volunteer
services, was presented
with the $1,100 check at
the awards celebration in
the gallery.

SCF board postpones vote on Hafner


By KATY BERGEN
BRADENTON HERALD

Students who gathered
to support their president
at the State College of
Florida Board of Trustees
meeting last week waited
for a vote that never came.
Perhaps other members
of an overflow audience
that had to be moved to a
larger venue were waiting
for the same thing.
But the fate of SCF
president Lars Hafner,
who survived a no-
confidence vote from
trustees at August's
meeting, wasn't clear
until the end. This time,
board member Charlene
Neal may have saved him
by being absent.
"I know that there was
great anticipation on

whether there would be
a vote on certain topics
here," said trustee Craig
Trigueiro, who made the
no-confidence motion
before. "I will not make
any motion of impor-
tance unless the whole
board is here."
The board's inaction
means Hafner will
remain president at least
until the next meeting,
or the completion of a
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement forgery
investigation involving
Hafner. The investigation
began in June after board
chairman Carlos Beruff
alleged Hafner forged
the signature of former
board chairman Steve
Harner on a 2010 state
grant application for
SCF's Collegiate School.


Hafner has maintained
repeatedly, and in an
affidavit, that he signed
Harner's name with
Harner's permission.
As of last week's meet-
ing the Hafner investiga-
tion was still active, said
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement spokes-
woman Gretl Plessinger.
Board members tight-
ened the reins on Hafner
in the meantime. Before
the meeting, Hafner
could approve college
construction projects
under $325,000 without
board approval. The
board voted to decrease
that amount to $150,000.
"I want to rein in the
authority," Trigueiro said.
"It would prevent anyone
in this college to enter a
contract, legally binding,

without the board's
approval."
Board members have
taken issue with Hafner's
spending on several occa-
sions before the accusa-
tions of forgery occurred.
At their last meeting,
Triguerio's motion of
no-confidence stalled 4-4
after intense debate about
Hafner's financial judg-
ment. After that meeting,
an online petition was
circulated by students on
the Facebook page "Let
Lars Lead." It threatens
"outrage" if Hafner is fired.
As of last Tuesday evening,
140 people had signed
the petition. Students
also gathered before the
meeting to show support
for Hafner.
"We didn't want people
to say that students aren't


supportive," said student
Leah Feliciano, 18,
who praised Hafner for
expanding the school's
nursing program and
increasing the number of
baccalaureate programs
at the state school. "He
really has brought our
school to a new level."
Other students said
they gathered because
the board hasn't provided
an opportunity for them
to speak on behalf of
their president. Public
comments are not
usually heard at board
meetings, and at the
August meeting Beruff
reprimanded those
who cheered in support
of trustee Joe Miller's
defense of Hafner.
"The biggest thing is
that they wouldn't let


us speak," said Cindy
Micochero, 20. "We're the
ones paying to be here."
Beruff and Trigueiro
have also created a
precedent of adding
items, such as the motion
to limit Hafner's spending,
during board comments.
Trustee Jennifer Saslaw
said she was tired of being
surprised by these items.
"I would like to suggest
that we get all the infor-
mation on this and put
it on the agenda," Saslaw
said. "I really don't like
things like this coming
up at the end of the
meeting, when we have
a week to go through
everything (else)."
Saslaw and trustee Joe
Miller were the only mem-
bers to oppose Trigueiro's
motion. It passed 5-2.

CARING FOR YOUR
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR


Because chiropractic philosophy encompasses
disease prevention and health maintenance as much
as it addresses the underlying causes of disease, it
can benefit patients of all ages, and particularly
children. For instance, recent research shows that
overweight children and teenagers may be at
elevated risk for developing chronic headaches. The
reasons for this headache-weight link are not clear,
but researchers suspect that obesity is an
exacerbating factor. Because chiropractic takes a


CHILDREN


non-drug approach to addressing such problems, a
chiropractor is more likely to look for the reasons)
that a child is suffering from headaches rather than
to prescribe pain medication. If this is the way you
would like your child treated, make chiropractic
part of his or her health plan.
P.S. With regard to the obesity-headache link
among children, it may be that inflammatory
substances associated with obesity may worsen
headaches.

OUR VIEW


Procurement is on the right track


he Sarasota County Commission
took another step toward rewrit-
ing procurement standards and
practices last week, nearly one and a
half years after an employee's arrest
sparked a scandal that led to a major
house-cleaning.
The new rules, which aim to rede-
fine procedures, are some of the 263
recommendations made by outside
consultants and the county clerk's
office. All the recommendations will
be addressed, officials said. But these
were some of the bigger items.
Among other things, the board de-
cided it should have final approval on
all purchases of more than $100,000.
The county administrator can sign off
on anything less. Purchasing would
be subject to new thresholds, which
could open the process to competi-
tion. Employees could make pur-
chases with a county credit card for
anything less than $3,000. Purchases


between $3,000 and $25,000 would
require three verbal quotes. Three
written quotes would be needed for
anything that costs $25,000 to $50,000.
Anything above that would require a
bid or proposal.
This makes sense. It would give the
administrator flexibility, and it would
make sure commissioners signed off
on larger purchases. In fact, board
members have begun to question more
single-bid purchases that have come
across their desks in recent months.
The code changes also include clear,
written ethical standards, something
that was surprisingly lacking before.
Maybe that's because the basic
principles were obvious to the point of
being superfluous: no bid-rigging or
illegal activities. But we liked the fact
that vendors were barred from "lobby-
ing" during the procurement process.
One item left up in the air dealt with
a particularly sticky question: local


preference statutes. Right now, Sarasota
uses a point system for bids and
professional service contracts. ("Local"
preference extends through the region,
to Charlotte and Manatee counties.)
The system has laudable aims, but
often misses the mark. Big, out-of-
town companies can manipulate
the system by setting up a shell local
"office." As county procurement
official Ted Coyman said, the system
is "relatively unverifiable." In addi-
tion, an out-of-town contractor may
promise to use local subcontractors,
then drop them when the actual work
begins.
"It almost becomes a joke," said
County Commissioner Nora Patterson.
But not a funny one.
We were intrigued by the process
used in Manatee County and ex-
plained by former Manatee procure-
ment official Rob Cuthbert. The
chamber of commerce and Builders


Exchange supply a list of "local busi-
nesses" that go into a database, and
all are sought out for bid requests.
For professional services, Manatee
forgoes a strict point system. "We use
the English language," Cuthbert said.
The county asks firms to detail their
impact on the local economy and how
the business will benefit it.
"The people who are local do have a
more significant impact and, yes, they
filter out higher on our evaluations,"
he said.
The big problem? The process
is "evaluative" and "subjective,"
Cuthbert said.
"Subjective" will scare away any
government trying to reinforce the
notion that its procedures are uniform
and fair. The flip side of strict bureau-
cratic rules is that they can prevent
reasonable people from doing what's
best. The tricky part is finding the
balance.


The reps, part 1


Whew! We got the ballots for
"Best of Venice" into your homes
this past Saturday and we already
have ballots being turned in.
I may have been misleading
when I asked that only one
ballot per delivery customer
be turned in. Because we did a
special section, the whole piece
is considered one ballot, with five
category ballots inside. Please feel
free to cast your votes on all five
ballots in the special section and
return them to us. I apologize if
my instructions were misleading.
In any event, we are happy
to have set in motion the "Best
of" campaign and look forward
to finding out the businesses
you deem to be the best.
Staff formed two committees
this morning, one in charge of
recording and counting votes
and the other in charge of
the "Best of" celebration. It's
amazing how lucky I am to have
such a helpful ad staff. I prob-
ably don't thank them in public
enough, so I thought I would
remind them how great they are.
This week I will focus on the
women, as it was Women in
Business week recently. Please
don't take the order I write
about them as anything more
than my thinking process.
I have to start with Charleen
Myers simply because she would
never leave me alone about it if
I did not. Charleen is a strong,
energetic and professional
medical-sales rep who brightens
every room she walks into. Her
determination and personality
carry her through most situa-
tions. However, her best trait
is her desire to keep learning.
We are fortunate to have added
Charleen to our staff.
Kim Phillips is another new
addition to our staff and has
turned out to be an incredible
asset. Kim's strong personality
and quick-witted responses
keep me on my toes. When it
comes to business, Kim is very
sharp and can work through
any issue with the ease of a
hot knife through butter. Kim's
best trait is her ability to see the
big picture and move toward
solutions. Indeed, Kim's career
change was a pot of gold for us.
Tara Shea has worked in
practically every department at
the newspaper except for edito-
rial. In each of her roles, Tara has
advanced rapidly and she always
seeks new challenges. Tara has


quickly taken control of her role
and we are seeing positive results
from this eager new rep. Tara's
best trait is her ability to adapt
to situations as they occur. It is a
pleasure to have Tara on the staff.
Linda Shinsky is the best real
estate magazine manager in the
business. Linda goes out and cre-
ates win-win relationships with
clients and never stops working.
She is the office energizer bunny,
and her best trait is her nurturing
skills. Meeting and working with
Linda has turned out to be one of
the most rewarding times of my
career and I am dam proud to
have her on my staff.
Jeannie Moore is one of the
most driven sales reps I have
ever dealt with. Her self-
motivation techniques, coupled
with her desire to succeed, are
second to none. Jeannie's stron-
gest trait is her belief in herself
and those around her. Jeannie is
one you can count on no matter
what, and that type of reliability
is rare. Her presence on staff
gives me peace of mind.
Chris Naletko is a wonderful
talent for us who is blessed with
the skills of an artist as well as a
great salesperson. Chris is always
geared toward being the best
she can be and will go the extra
mile. Chris recently delivered her
second child and worked every
day until the day she delivered.
That tells you more than I can
ever write. Chris has that dedica-
tion trait all employers seek. We
are indeed proud of Chris and
very excited she is on staff.
Stacy McIntosh is our jack
of all trades on the phone. She
handles our legal ads, church
ads and outbound calls for new
business. In her spare time she
handles select specialty ac-
counts via email and phone. Her
workday is incredibly diverse
and so is she. Stacy loves to argue
with me and often makes me
laugh, as her strongest trait is her
personality. We are so happy she
made the transition to sales rep.
And then there is Darlene
Willis. Darlene knows a whole
lot about everything and is the
glue that keeps us together in the
ad department. Darlene pos-
sesses a wicked sense of humor
and has the knack of easing the
tension in any negative situation.
I often wonder where the heck
we would end up if Darlene ever
won the lottery. Darlene is truly
a gift to us and we are all wise
enough to know to do our best to
keep her happy.
There you have a strong
group of women ad executives
who handle the day-to-day
routine of being a rep for our
local businesses. As you can
see, I either have my hands full
or am truly blessed.
I think it's an awful lot of both.

Unbiased. The Romney
article is a fine example of
objective journalism, standing
tall in a wasteland of liberal,
biased media. They spoke to
the crowd of 5,000 people, the
signs, the waiting time and the
heat, and referred to Romney's
emphasis on jobs, the
economy and the dangers of
Obamacare. Folks in the crowd
were interviewed and allowed
to give their opinions. Even the
protesters were mentioned.
Again, it's a fine piece of objec-
tive journalism and we need
to see more of it. In contrast,
a local TV station chose to
paraphrase the words of Mitt
Romney in front of a vacant
square. More time was given to
the protesters and it referred to
the clothing worn by some of
the Romney supporters as pa-
triotic costumes. They should
have just called them clown
suits. They then contrasted
that to a well-dressed, sophis-
ticated Democrat who sup-
ported Obama and Obamacare
for her 80-year-old mother. It
was an incredibly superficial,
lame piece to put on televi-
sion. Again, the Gondolier Sun
did a great job.
Editor's Note: That piece was
written by North Port Sun Staff
Writer Scott Lockwood, who
covers Sarasota County for the
Sun newspapers.
Park it. It would be wonder-
ful if Venice could have a food
park featuring locally grown
fruits and vegetables. It's hard
to plan to have enough when
I only have a chance once a
week to go to the farmers mar-
ket here to buy locally grown.
So please, however we can do
it, let's have a food park.
Strings. I'm just reading
about someone saying it's
wonderful to have the FAA
give $7.1 million. There are
probably strings attached that
we're going to regret. Nothing
federal is good for the city.
Then I read that somebody is
having a problem because of
a Bible study in their home.


Let 'em




N-001


Have It
We can have anything we
want in our home. That's my
business, not the business of
the zoning board or the city
government or anybody. It's
my home.
Nonpolitical. I'd like to
respond to Ed Martin's letter
to the editor in the Gondolier
Sun. I believe that he was
incorrect because Cardinal
Donlan also made the closing
prayer for the Democrats, so I
think he's very nonpolitical.
Approval needed. This in
reply to the caller "Ridiculous."
The caller called in response
to a previous caller who stated
a 71-year-old patient with
a brain bleeder would have
to be given approval for the
procedure to stop the bleeder.
"Ridiculous" basically ended
the call with the statement
that any caller should first
have accurate information
and get their facts straight.
"Ridiculous," your call is
just that, ridiculous. I recall
that Pelosi said, "We need to
pass the bill in order to find
out what's in it." Well, we're
finding out what's in it. The
first caller was correct. If
you're a 70-year-old or older
patient and come into the


emergency room with a brain
bleeder, under Obamacare
rules you would need approval
of the Independent Payment
Advisory Panel before the doc-
tor can do the needed proce-
dure. You are only entitled to
comfort care until the board
approves the procedure. You
were right about one thing,
"Ridiculous" get your facts
straight before replying to
a post. The first caller was
correct.
Snack time. I've never read a
more convoluted, say-nothing
editorial than what I just read
on your opinion page. If we
had cookies, we could have
milk and cookies, if we had
some milk.
Short cut. A president
should treat all people equally
and with respect. There is no
room for a bully or bullying
behavior in the White House.
Mitt Romney, in high school,
did not like a classmate
with long hair. He organized
students to grab the bully
and Mitt cut off his hair. This
is a terrible trait for a future
president.
Off line. This is about not
being able to get the Sun
online. It's not the Gondolier
Sun that I can't get online, it's
your free paper, the Sun, which
hasn't been published online
since August. You should get
acquainted with your prod-
ucts. It's a very interesting
paper. I don't want to go out
and find it in town, I want
to just read it online when
I'm reading a Gondolier Sun
online.
Both sides. Mayor Ed
Martin's letter to the editor giv-
ing his opinion of the church's
interest in offering the clos-
ing prayer at the Republican
National Convention appears
to ignore the fact that Cardinal
Dolan, who delivered the
prayer, also delivered the clos-
ing prayer at the Democratic
National Convention. So it
seems to me as though the
church did not take sides.









The best places sometimes want you out


I'm grateful to have
traveled to more than
half the United States
and several countries
overseas where I've seen
some stunning scenery,
but right here in Sarasota
County is a place that's
one of my all-time
favorites.
It has sweeping vistas
of land and sea, a road so
close to the water it feels
like it's about to tip into
the Gulf of Mexico and
an ambiance that feels
other-worldly.
Pelicans and wading
birds frequent the


beaches here mostly
undisturbed, and photo
opportunities abound.
On Friday, I saw a
manatee.
I'm talking about the
north end of Casey Key.
I go there often,
mostly by car, occasion-
ally on foot parking
on Blackburn Point
Road is the quickest
way to get there by foot.
Either way, I always
leave with uplifted
spirits. It's that kind of
place.
Houses with prices
somewhere in the
stratosphere along this
gilded stretch of real
estate help contribute
to the other-worldliness
of the place. Recently,
my world and that world
collided.
When you drive onto
Casey Key via Blackburn
Point Road, you come to
a fork where you must


choose left or right.
Most people turn left.
Part of the reason for that
is that if you go right, you
are met with a barrage of
signs that say things like
"Dead end" and other
discouraging terms.
The word "dead" really
jumps out at you and
makes you feel like you
are going to die if you go
beyond that point.
Clearly, the people who
live there want you to
turn around.
I encourage you to
ignore those signs and
continue north on North
Casey Key Road.
It is so worth it, and
you are entitled to be
there and enjoy the
amazing scenery.
The people who live on
that stretch of Casey Key
paid millions of dollars
for their properties, and
there have been robber-
ies. This is what Deputy


J. Ward with the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
told me Friday when
he stopped me for no
apparent reason except I
was walking there.
"What are you doing
here?" he asked.
"I'm walking," I replied.
"Is that illegal?"
"This is a private road,"
he said.
He asked me for ID.
I produced it.
He wrote my name on
a pad.
He asked if that was
my car parked along the
side of Blackburn Point
Road near the bridge.
"Yes it is my car," I
said. "Am I parked there
illegally?"
I wasn't.
"I just think it's odd
that you would park
there to walk here," he
said. "Why did you park
there to walk here?"
"There's no parking


here," I said.
Yes, there is parking
about 6 miles south at
Nokomis Public Beach,
but that's a long way to
walk to get to this special
stretch of road.
"People come here
on foot and try door
handles," he said. He
added that residents
pay to have the place
monitored.
The conversation
continued politely and
I felt less threatened by
Deputy Ward when he
backed down from the
privacy issue. In fact, he
told me toward the end,
you can even access the
beach on this end of
Casey Key.
"But there are signs all
over that say 'No Beach
Access Enforced,'" I
said.
"Well, anyone can go
on the beach," he said
with what looked a lot


like a wink, "as long as
you're (seaward) of the
mean high-tide mark."
There were no signs
pinpointing exactly
where the mean high-
tide mark was.
Was it an intimidating
encounter? Yes. Was it
meant to be? Yes. I'm not
sure what would've hap-
pened if I hadn't been
carrying ID.
The point is, this is
just a stunning, beauti-
ful place and anyone is
entitled to walk or drive
there. The road was paid
for with taxpayer dollars
- all taxpayers, not just
those who can afford to
live there.
See you on the north
end of Casey Key. Just
remember to take ID.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Religious freedom,
not discrimination

Editor:
In the weeks leading up
to the November elections,
the Florida public is going
to hear more about a
proposed amendment to
the Florida Constitution
called Amendment 8
- also known as the
Florida Religious Freedom
Amendment.
There exists a Florida
law that prohibits
public funds from being
provided to faith-based
institutions for social ser-
vices, even though these
funds would benefit all
people, regardless of
religion. Amendment 8
would overturn that law
and ensure that faith-
based institutions are not
discriminated against


when public funds
are available for social
services such as shelter,
food, medical care and
more for the needy. After
all, people of faith are
taxpayers too, and that's
where these funds come
from.
Faith-based and pri-
vate organizations often
provide equal or higher
quality and quantity
services for less money
than the government,
thus lowering the cost to
taxpayers and reigning in
government bureaucracy.
Some support the work
of faith-based institu-
tions, but disagree with
these institutions accept-
ing government money.
They fear faith-based
groups would become
beholden to the mighty
arm of government.
Shouldn't these groups


be allowed to serve those
in need and do what they
do well? It is one thing to
say faith-based groups
shouldn't accept govern-
ment dollars; it is entirely
different to outlaw their
eligibility for these funds.
The current law also
flies in the face of religious
freedom. Singling out
capable social service pro-
viders simply because they
are faith-based is fiscally
unsound and, without a
doubt, discrimination.


of a steel beam brought
here from the wreck-
age of the North Tower,
mounted on a polygon
black marble base on
which names of those
fallen are engraved.
As I stood there that
morning what amazed
me most was that the
whole project became
a reality through the
initiative, efforts and
funding of countless lo-
cal small businesses and


private individuals. Of
the project's $70,000 cost,
not one penny came
from government.
At one point during
the ceremonies the MC
asked them to come
forward and the space in
front of the main stage
was gradually filled by
representatives of local
builders, construction
companies, home remod-
elers, movers, painters,
landscapers, stone


engravers and others.
It was they, not govern-
ment, that built that.
The thought then came
to my mind that it might
be quite fitting for all
those small businessmen
to proudly say, "Yes, we
built that!"
Thank you,
American private small
businessmen.

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS GOLF



Unbeaten girls golf wins Donald Ross Invitational


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

For the first time
since 1996 and the
second time in school
history, the Venice High
girls golf team won the
nine-team Donald Ross
Invitational Tournament,
held Monday at Sara
Bay Country Club in
Sarasota.
The Indians, who
improved their record to
a perfect 30-0 with the
win, shot a 251. Lemon
Bay (273) and Manatee
(284) followed, but Venice
thoroughly dominated
the 18-hole tournament.
Venice head coach
James Slaton said, "We
were the same old story,
real steady."
Grace Gildner's 81 was
the second-lowest score
among the tournament's
36 golfers. Maddie Chavez
(84) and Lexie Flerlage
(86) shot the third- and
fifth-lowest totals,
respectively.
"I don't think the
tournament sets up in
our favor, even though


we won it," said Slaton
of the tournament's odd
scoring format. "Our
strength is our depth
and we only got to
count three scores. Had
we been able to count
four scores (Victoria
Cangero shot 90) we
would've won by 40
strokes."
Sara Bay is the toughest
course the Indians will
play this year.
"The greens were just
screaming," said Slaton.
"They're so sloped. We
probably won't face any
tougher test than those
greens out there. If you
missed going downhill, it
was gone.
"It was good to be out
in that environment and
be able to bring home
a championship. It's
something the girls will
always remember, so it's
a big deal for them. It's a
prestigious event."
Venice will host Lemon
Bay and Riverview
Thursday at Mission
Valley Country Club at
3:30 p.m.

Peacock referred to is
Indians running back
Terry Polk. The junior
is the area's second-
leading rusher, having
racked up 697 yards and
8 touchdowns through
the first four games of
the season.
While Polk has
been a benchmark
of consistency thus
far, quarterback Kale
Youtzy appears to
have broken out of his
passing slump. Youtzy,
who failed to complete
a pass in Venice's win
over Riverview three
weeks ago, completed
9 of his 13 attempts for
138 yards and a touch-
down against Lehigh.
Peacock said Youtzy's
performance could lead
to increased responsi-
bility for him.
"We have a bunch of
plays in our playbook,"
said Peacock. "We've
been watering it down.
But we're adding stuff
as we go. I think he


cacLlngIIIIIM Le Da1. I
don't want to add too
much and not be good
at anything. We need to
be good at what we do."
The improving pass-
ing game could pay
dividends for senior
Quaheem Kapinski,
whose opportunities
had been limited by
Youtzy's struggles
through the air.
Peacock said of
Kapinski, "We took
some shots with him
(Friday). He caught a
nice ball down by the
goal line. He had two
catches Friday night
and we tried to throw
to him two other times
and we missed him.
We're going to try to get
the ball to him."
Kapinski has been
effective in the return
game and also returned
an interception 43
yards against Lehigh.

ping an overtime thriller

IS a pass-III`L Lrs eamI, le
by quarterback Hunter
DeWitt. Venice will
need to contain Sailors
receiver Shawn Bane,
who is third in the area
in receptions (19) and
second in yards (412).
Peacock mentioned that
his team will spend more
time in practice this week
preparing for the Sailors'
passing attack.
"They're very bal-
anced," said Peacock.
"They have a very good
quarterback. They do
a lot of things, so we
need to do a good job
preparing for them and
figuring out what to ex-
pect. Defensively, they
give you a whole bunch
of looks. They're bring-
ing people every down.
I'm sure they'll make us
look bad at some point,
but if we do a good job
this week in practice
we'll be fine."
Stylistically, Venice
will have a number of
advantages in its favor
Friday night. Kapinski


pro UAcLIVILy, LanH Lne
Indians' pass rush, led
by senior defensive end
Dom Fanti, has shown
the ability to harass the
quarterback when oppos-
ing teams have tried to
attack Venice through the
air. While DeWitt will be
the most accomplished
passer the Indians have
faced thus far, Venice's
defense will be DeWitt's
toughest matchup to
date. It's one thing to sit
in the pocket and pick
apart North Port; doing so
against the Indians will be
much more difficult.
On the offensive
side of the ball, expect
Venice to put points on
the scoreboard early
and often. Nobody has
solved Venice's potent
rushing attack thus far,
and the Sailors' r6sum6
suggests that trend will
continue. The Indians
ride the momentum
of last week's win to
another no-doubter.

impressive 35-14 win
over Lehigh last week,
the Venice Indians (3-1)
will host rival Sarasota
(2-2) in both teams'
district opener Friday.
The win over Lehigh
was Venice's cleanest
game of the season. The
penalties and missed
assignments that had
hampered the Indians
in previous weeks
were nowhere to be
seen as Venice easily
dispatched a talented
Lightning squad.
"We played pretty
good Friday night," said
Indians head coach
John Peacock. "I feel
like we're getting better
each week."
A week after criticiz-
ing his offensive line's
play, Peacock praised
the unit.
"They did a lot bet-

Danes (Tiny Mites)
vs. Cape Coral;
no score kept
The Danes had a
very competitive game
Saturday against Cape
Youth. Both defenses
gave the offenses a hard
time all game by keep-
ing them out of the end
zone and making them
earn every yard. The
Danes' defense was a
complete team effort led
by the linebackers. Carter
Dalton and Sean Seibert
championed the Danes'
rushing attack. Seibert
scored his first touch-
down of the year on a
15-yard reverse. Dalton
scored on the second
series of the game with
a quarterback keeper
around the end.

Cape Coral 36,

and Cato Terry-Glover
ran hard for some tough
yards.
On defense, Damon
Wilson intercepted
a pass to help set up
a touchdown. Other
defensive standouts
included Cameron Berg,
Hayden Rose, Caden
Peters, Jake Swartz and
Olivia Sleight.

Lancers
(Peewee) 35,
Cape Coral 0
The Lancers pitched
their fourth shutout of
the season, blanking the
Cape Junior Marlins 35-0.
After trading punts in the
first quarter, the Lancers'
defense set up the
first touchdown when
Noah Lay intercepted
a Marlins pass. After a
holding penalty backed
the Lancers up 20 yards,
Jared Bailey connected
with Justin Holloway
on a 31-yard pass. Scott
Schenke scored on a
15-yard run and Bailey
added the extra point on
a QB keeper.
The defense forced an-
other Marlins punt, with
tackles by Schenke, Taner
Nicol, Lay and Shawn
Cettei. The Lancers Gold
offense got the ball in
Venice territory and
drove the ball 30 yards
on runs by Guilherme
Miranda and Jack Chace.
With just seconds left
in the half, the Lancers
Green offense went
back on the field and
Jared Bailey scored on a
42-yard QB run, evad-
ing several tackles. Ben
Krizen had a key block.


Trenton Tarala added the
2-point kick.
The Lancers added
two touchdowns in the
third quarter. Schenke
had a 35-yard run to
set up Bailey's 6-yard
TD. Bailey passed to
Schenke for the extra
point. Schenke and
Micah Redding forced a
fumble on the Marlins
next drive, which led to
a 23-yard run by Bailey
and a 5-yard TD by
Chason Rockymore, who
also ran for the extra
point. The Lancers had
a running clock for the
entire fourth quarter.
The Gold offense, led
by QB Brett Keyso, scored
its first touchdown of
the season on a 45-yard
run by Miranda with
blocking from Brian
Williams, Jacob Touchton
and Chace. The Gold
offense, which includes
Max Howard, Jarett
Tolar, Hilton Harris, Fred
Beyer, Charlie Stephens
and Holden Prachar,
played well all game. The
Lancers' defense kept the
Marlins out of the end
zone in the second half
with a sack from Jake
Meyers and tackles by
Krizen, Miranda, Howard
and Tolar.

Cape Coral 29,
Warriors
(Midget) 14
The undefeated Cape
Junior Dolphins came
to play and the Warriors
couldn't find the keys to
an upset Saturday night.
Cape struck first on its
opening possession with
a 50-yard drive to go
ahead 6-0. The lead would
only last seconds as Joe
Williams scampered 73
yards on the ensuing kick-
off to tie the game at 6.
The Dolphins would tack
on two more touchdowns
to go up 22-6 at the half.
Venice received the
kickoff to start the second
half and on its second
play from scrimmage,
Williams broke free for a
63-yard touchdown run.
Finn Laskowski added
the PAT and the Warriors
closed the gap to 22-14.
However, the Dolphins
answered right back on
their next drive to extend
their lead 29-14 at the
end of the third quarter.
Neither team would score
in the final quarter as the
wet field and slippery
conditions hampered
both quarterbacks.
Williams totaled 140 yards
rushing and 2 TDs. Johnny
McCullough and George
Cemovich were outstand-
ing on defense with
several open field tackles
and Ben Surak recovered a
fumble for the Warriors.

Elections office extends hours for registration


FROM THE SARASOTA COUNTY
SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS

Sarasota County
Supervisor of Elections
offices will remain open
until 7 p.m. on Tuesday,
Oct. 9, the deadline to
register to vote in the
Nov. 6 general election.
Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent said staff will
be accepting new voter
registrations, as well
as address and name
changes and signature
updates, at SOE offices
in the Terrace Building,
101 S. Washington
Blvd., Sarasota; the
Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center,
4000 South Tamiami
Trail, Room 114, South
Venice; and Biscayne
Plaza, 13640 Tamiami
Trail, North Port, during
the extended hours.
New registrations
and signature
updates must be
submitted on a Florida
Voter Registration
Application.
Name and party


changes may be made
by signed written
notice, including on an
FVRA, but must include
the voter's date of birth
or Florida voter registra-
tion system ID number.
Address changes
within the state of
Florida may be made by
phone, fax or email but
must include the voter's
date of birth.
Voters may check
their registration
status by going to
the SOE website,
www.SarasotaVotes.
com. Select "Voter
Information" from
the menu, then "Voter
Lookup," and follow the
instructions.
Florida voter reg-
istration application
forms are available at
all supervisor of elec-
tions' offices, city halls,
county libraries and of-
fices, and social service
agencies, and may be
downloaded from the
SOE website.
For more information,
call 941-861-8600 or


write to the Supervisor of
Elections, P.O. Box 4194,
Sarasota FL 34230-4194.
Sample ballots for the
Nov. 6 General Election
are now available on
the supervisor of elec-
tions website, www.
SarasotaVotes.com.
Voters may go to the
website and select the
"Precinct Finder" icon
at the top of the home
page or click on the
"personalized sample
ballot" link in the "News
Briefs" section and
follow the easy instruc-
tions to view a person-
alized sample ballot.
Dent is urging voters
to take time to care-
fully study the ballot,
which is packed with
candidate races, consti-
tutional amendments
and local referenda.
She said the ballot will
be extremely long -
two 17-inch pages, front
and back and will
contain 11 proposed
amendments to the
Florida Constitution,
dealing with issues


including healthcare
services, homestead
exemptions and
religious freedom.
In addition, there will
be local ballot questions
concerning a county
charter amendment
and municipal charter
amendments, judicial
retention questions, races
for President, U.S. Senate,
the 16th Congressional
District, a constitutional
office, county commis-
sion, charter review board
and a host of other local
offices.
Dent said the consti-
tutional amendment
questions will be particu-
larly time-consuming to
consider and reminds
voters that their ballots
will count even if they
choose not to vote on
every race or every issue
for the ballots. She said
information on the pro-
posed amendments may
also be accessed from
the SOE website and at
the Division of Elections
website at www.elections.
myflorida.com.


"Amendment wording
can be very confusing
and even misleading,"
she said. "I urge every
voter to take the time to
study the sample ballot,
research the issues, and
make educated choices."
Dent also noted
that her office will be
sending a personalized
sample ballot to all reg-
istered voters who have
not requested to vote by
mail (absentee) in the
November election.
Because of the length
of the ballot and the
number of amendments,
Dent strongly recom-
mends electors consider
voting by mail, which is
cost-effective and gives
voters a longer opportu-
nity to study the issues
and find answers to their
questions.
Dent said the elec-
tions office began
mailing vote-by-mail
ballots to military and
overseas voters Sept. 21
and began mailing to
nearly 50,000 domestic
voters Oct. 2.


Voters may request
a mail (absentee)
ballot online at www.
SarasotaVotes.com, by
phone at 941-861-8618
or by email at absentee
@sarasotavotes. The
deadline to request a
ballot be mailed to a
voter is Wednesday,
Oct. 31. Voted mail
ballots may be returned
in person or by mail
to any supervisor of
elections office but
must be received in the
elections office no later
than 7 p.m. on Election
Day. The cost of postage
to return a vote by mail
ballot will be 65 cents.
Early voting is also
an option for voters
who want to avoid lines
at the polling places
on Election Day. Early
voting will run from
Oct. 27 through Nov. 3,
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.,
at the three SOE offices
in Sarasota, Venice
and North Port, and at
the Gulf Gate, North
Sarasota and Fruitville
libraries.

What's



Change can be a
scary thing, but it's
going to happen.
Even things left alone
change over time. The
question is whether the
change is good or not.
We have made some
changes to Our Town
beginning with this edi-
tion, and we think they're
good. We hope you agree.
After you've had a chance
to finish reading this col-
umn and look them over,
let me know at bmudge@
venicegondolier.com.
The first change is the
use of this space. I won't
be writing a column every
week, but every edition
will have a story or column
here that relates to our en-
hanced coverage of what's
going on in the area south
of Venice. On Saturdays,
Assistant Features Editor
Audrey Blackwell will be
featured here with a col-
umn about an interesting
person, place or thing she
found on her travels there.
The front-page piece will
lead you into two inside
pages headed South Trail,
which is the major addition
you'll notice today.
Why are we refocusing
on our neighbors to the
south? I can explain it
with a little history.
When I first joined the
paper in 2000, one of my
titles was South Venice
editor, and we dedicated
space to that area. Later,
we thought that having
a page headed "South
Venice" was kind of an
unintended insult to
Nokomis, Osprey, Laurel
and North Venice, all of
which we were trying to
provide coverage to but
none of which had com-
mitted space. We dropped
the name, thinking it
wouldn't have an effect
on our efforts there, but it
did. Aggravated by staff-
ing cutbacks, the fact that
those pages didn't have
to relate to South Venice
made it easy to fill them
with other content, and
our connection to a large
audience got weak. It's
time to reconnect.
Our sister weekly, the
Sun, does a good job
with things happening to
our north, and Businews
Columnist Roger Button
helps us keep track of
news in Nokomis through
Osprey, so we think that
area is covered fairly well,
at least for now. With the
help of former staff writer
Ed Scott, now a correspon-
dent for us, we're looking
south, from just over the
Circus Bridge down to
North Port and out to River
Road to the east and the
Gulf to the west.
Ed has already written
several stories for us about
the area. More important,
he is recruiting a stable of
writers from Plantation,
South Venice, Venice
Gardens and other com-
munities there who will
help us keep you informed
and entertained about their
goings-on.We could still
use more help, though. If
you'd like to submit stories
or photos, email me or Ed,
npescott@gmail.com, for
more information about
what we're looking for.

'Sea'Venice Art Center


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sea turtles and dolphins
are nesting at the Venice
Art Center.
Unlike the loggerheads
that have nested along
Venice beaches in record
numbers this season, or
the dolphins frequently
seen from the jetties, these
colorful creatures are part
of the center's SeaVenice
fundraising project.
In 2005, pigs captivated
residents and visitors alike
during the winter season
when the center held its
Pigs in Paradise fundrais-
ing event. Generating
more than $250,000 for the
center, the pigs have since
moved on to new homes
in Ohio, Pennsylvania and
elsewhere after bringing
prices of as much as $7,800
(Elvis Pigsley) at auction.
This time, committee
members chose two
creatures instead of one.
"They were equally
popular with the sponsors
but not with the artists,"
artist coordinator Tanya
Sauppe said. "Most of the
artists wanted to paint a
dolphin because it would
be one big, smooth canvas.
The turtles are more
complicated, but the spon-
sor gets to pick the name,
the location, the animal
and the artist, and this is all
about the sponsors."
Triton sponsors pay
a minimum of $2,500
per animal. That covers
the cost of the fiberglass
animal, artist commission,
concrete base and close
to $1,000 per animal for
the art center. Additional
money will be raised next
April when the animals
are taken to Venice Yacht
Club for a gala dinner and
auction. That is where Elvis
Pigsley fetched $7,800 and
pigs painted by sculptor
Jack Dowd, Sauppe and
others fetched $5,300 and
$5,400 each.
The auction raised the
most money during the
nearly year-long project.
An additional $5,000
was brought in when the
Sauppe-painted pig was
resold after the auction.
The Elizabeth M.
Campbell and Edmund B.
Campbell Foundation is
the event's Poseidon spon-
sor at $12,000. Contributing
$9,000 each as Neptune
sponsors are Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
and Venetian Dental. The
Venice Gondolier Sun is
the event's media sponsor.
The Amphitrite sponsor
category is $6,000 per
sponsor.
Artists were required to
submit proposed designs
that had to be approved
because of the auction,
Sauppe said. The most
clever designs tend to
fetch the most money.
Sauppe recently com-
pleted what may be the
most unusual animal, or
at least the one undergo-
ing the most cosmetic
surgery Chef Mario
Turtoli. Jointly sponsored
by Leone's Ristorante and
Pizzeria (Center Road
and Jacaranda) and the
Tiffany and Tommy Taylor
Family Fund, Chef Mario
had fiberglass surgery
before being painted. The
turtle chef holds most of a
pizza in one hand and the
missing slice in the other
hand, Sauppe said.
Sculptor Jack Dowd did
something similar with
his pig for the first project,
changing the right front
foreleg of the pig so that it
would hold a tray for its roll
as Mr. Piggens, a proper
English butler. It fetched
one of the top prices at
auction and today guards a
swimming pool inVenice.
"Ben Saxby did the fiber-
glass work on my turtle,"


Artist Tanya Sauppe with Chef Tortoli, one of the 40 SeaVenice creatures that will be placed throughout downtown Venice
beginning in November. Sauppe painted this turtle.

Venice Art Center artist MaryJo Floryjanski decorated the Venice Art Center artist MaryJo Floryjanski painted the back of

Sauppe said. "He also had
the lowest bid for creating
the 40-inch by 40-inch
by 3.5-inch concrete
bases that will be used to
display the creatures from
November through April."
The base maker must
also bolt the creatures in
place and then unbolt
them later for transport
to the auction. Sauppe
said he really wanted to
be part of the art center
event. She added that
Saxby's price was much
lower than other bids.
The pads must be com-
pleted by Nov. 1, when the
turtles and dolphins will
be moved to sites in the
downtown Venice area.
One turtle will not be
in Venice. Painted by a
Sarasota High School
student, it will be placed
outside the Sarasota
Convention and Visitor
Bureau at 766 Hudson
St., Sarasota.


Rachel Lebar, the high
school senior, is a student
of Maryjo Floryjanski, a
Venice resident and VAC
member who helped with
artist coordination while
Sauppe was on vacation
during the summer.
Floryjanski, who teaches
art at Sarasota High
School, also painted a
turtle for SeaVenice.
"As a high school art
teacher, I try to give my
art students opportunities
they don't normally experi-
ence in the classroom,"
Floryjanski wrote in an
email. "Participating in a
public art project is some-
thing we have not done.
The public can see some of
the talent that high school
students display."
Having a SeaVenice
creature in Sarasota should
bring more visitors to
Venice, Sauppe said, add-
ing that there were many
visitors to Pigs in Paradise


even though the CVB only
displayed brochures. This
year, there will be bro-
chures and a turtle.
"Displaying it at the
visitor center will attract
people who do not ven-
ture to South County,"
Floryjanski wrote.
Lebar was chosen from
a student competition that
received many entries.
The CVB wanted one
student to experience the
process and receive the
recognition, the teacher
said. She was given a video
camera to document the
process and progress. She
also uploaded images to
Facebook.
Floryjanski also painted
a gecko for Bradenton's
Geckofest and a clown
for the Tidewell Hospice
fundraiser in Sarasota.
"I felt that being
involved with this public
art project and bringing
it to SHS was a positive


influence for my students,
not only because of the
opportunity for them to
submit designs, but to
see me involved with the
Venice community first
hand," Floryjanski said.
Two animals remained
unsold at press time
- one turtle and one
dolphin. To sponsor one,
call Venice Art Center at
941-485-7136.
To see the SeaVenice
creatures before they take
to the streets of Venice,
stop by the art center be-
ginning Friday morning.
Located at 390 S. Nokomis
Ave., the center is open
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

When Rita Benstein
brought a friend who
was recovering from a
stroke to swim in the
Warm Mineral Springs
spa earlier this year,
the friend began to
improve.
"After my friend re-
turned home up north,
her friends and family
thought she had gone
to a rehab center every
day while she was here,"
Benstein said. "I live
in Vero Beach. I don't
think people realize
the gem they have here
or how affordable it is
to go into the springs
compared to its healing
benefits.
"There is a film that
forms on the water in
the springs. I gather it
and rub it on my face
and other parts of my
body. The minerals seep
into my pores. It's so
rejuvenating."
Lana Kloch, another
visitor, travels from
South Carolina to Warm
Mineral Springs twice
a year to bask in the
87-degree waters.
'It's really good for
arthritis and other
ailments," she said. "I
have been coming here
for five years and I feel
so good every time I'm
here."
Benstein's friend
Paula Wiley, a Vero

"The massage therapy
here is fabulous," she
said. "I just had the best
hydro yoga session.
People who don't come
here just don't know
what they are missing.
The springs is a place
where people can really
end up feeling better."
The springs spa and
about 75 additional
acres were purchased
for about $6.3 million
by the city of North
Port and Sarasota
County two years ago.
The springs is overseen
by general manager
Gene Vaccaro, who said
there have been many
changes in the past two
years.
Just last month, three
new directors were
added to the WMS staff.
Fitness director
Carla Peralta is an
award-winning certified
personal trainer who
now oversees the team


of exercise instructors
at WMS.
"New and expanded
exercise offerings will
soon be announced,"
Vaccaro said.
A new community
outreach director posi-

to Yuri Kaplun, who
now visits civic clubs,
service groups, social
clubs, church groups
and government and
business organizations
to keep the commu-
nity informed about the
continuing improve-
ments at the springs.
"I had a really bad
back," Kaplun said. "I
had back surgery and
still had problems and
a lot of pain. I was
told I needed another
surgery."
Kaplun said he was
given a life-changing
gift.

Breast cancer survivors stories sought


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Though it's officially
observed in October,
for far too many people
every month is breast
cancer awareness month.


I don't know anyone
untouched by breast can-
cer, whether as a victim,
relative or close friend.
The list seems endless.
Not limited to any
group or race or even
gender, breast cancer


can be deadly or if
caught early enough -
possibly just a one-time
occurrence.
In recognition of
October as Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, which
it has been for more than


25 years, we are looking
for people willing to
share their stories.
Tell us how you dealt
with the diagnosis and
treatments. Tell us about
your support network. If
you were or are a caregiver,


please share your experi-
ences. The more stories we
get, the better.
Each story has the
potential to help some-
one deal with the disease
and maybe even lead to a
cure once and for all.


The key words are "for
all," because that ulti-
mately is the goal to
find a cure "for all."

Still time to learn to be a zombie


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

There is still time to
be the haunter instead
of the hauntee for
Halloween.
Hunsader's Rockin'
Ranch is looking for a
few good volunteers to
scare the daylights out of
visitors to the ranch on
Oct. 13, 20, 26, 27 and 31.
Owner Pete Hunsader is
even flying in a teacher
to train the volunteers in
the art of scaring. Instead
of haunting a house,


they will haunt a trail.
According to Hunsader,
there is more to this than
donning a fright wig and
dripping fake blood.
"If a little kid is crying
and frightened, the scare
characters are not sup-
posed to scare him even
more," Hunsader said.
"Instead, the character is
supposed to act scared
of the kid, which usu-
ally turns things around.
After all, we want people
to have fun and come
back."
The instructor will


teach the ins and outs of
"boo" and more in the
three-hour class next
Saturday. Those who
complete the course will
earn a certificate that
is recognized in many
states, he said.
"The actors have to
read the people com-
ing through the trail,"
Hunsader said. "This is
the second year we have
done this. We had 8,000
people last year."
While referred to as
volunteers, the actors
actually will be paid $25


per night plus a bonus
for working all five
nights, he said. A week
after the event closes,
there will be a party for
cast members and their
friends and family. That
is when they will be
paid.
The trail is about a
third of a mile in length
and it is across the street
from Hunsader Farms.
This Hunsader is
part of the family but
went off on his own a
few years back because
he wanted to do more


with tomatoes, he said.
After NAFTA, he could
not compete with
prices from Mexico,
so he planted palms,
landscaped a golf course
and, last year, opened
the haunted trail. He
plans a Christmas trail
for next year and a varia-
tion on a water park in
the spring.
He also rents the prop-
erty for evening concerts
and other events, many
for charitable causes, he
said.
"I am hoping to donate


$20,000 from this to
families of victims of the
Iraq war," Hunsader said
about the Halloween
season event.
Hunsader's Rockin'
Ranch is at 23810 E. 53rd

34251.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


By MAUREEN HOLLAND
GUEST WRITER
Picture a logging
camp deep in a
pine woods with no
roads, no stores. With
minimum shelter and
maximum mosquitoes.
A place where the
anemic development
stalled in the 1920s
after two destructive
hurricanes and the
Great Depression left
residents homeless,
living in tents and
depending on hunting
and fishing for survival.
That was South
Venice from the late
19th century until the
1930s.
Now picture a vi-
brant community of
nearly 20,000 people
with every imagin-
able amenity nearby
- schools, stores,
churches, theaters. Add
their own beach on the
Gulf, a boat ramp, lakes
for fishing, a number of
small parks, a commu-
nity house and one of
the finest public parks
in the county, with
tennis courts, miles
and miles of nature
trails and an educa-
tion center and nature
classes.
That is South Venice
today.
Development arrived
in South Venice in the
early 1950s when two
brothers from New
Jersey bought 3,000
acres on the Gulf and
created what is now
one of the largest and
oldest subdivisions in
the area.
Hoping to sell the
lots quickly, the broth-
ers promoted sales
with the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce,
which in those days
was located in a one-
room office on U.S. 41.
Since the chamber
was looking for ways to
market the area, they
were natural allies. A
deal was made and
shortly thereafter the
two launched a nation-
wide sales campaign. It
was so successful, most
of the lots sold in just a
few years.
In 1956, the develop-
ers deeded 1,600 feet
of beachfront on the
Gulf to South Venice
residents and built
two footbridges across
Lemon Bay connecting
the subdivision to their
beach.
It wasn't long before
early homeowners
came together and cre-
ated the South Venice
Civic Association. In
the late 1950s they
began fundraising to
build a community
hall. Financed entirely
by the residents, and
built partly with their
own labor (try that to-
day!), the SVCA opened
in December 1959.
A few years later,
they organized the
South Venice Volunteer
Fire Department,
which served the area

Kathy Walker and Jessica
Klipa at State College
of Florida are excited
about sharing what's


happening on the Venice
campus. Ed will be

until 1999.
At the time, the
beach was actually two
separate beaches -
North Beach and South
Beach interrupted
by a length of county-
owned beach. (One was
about where Shamrock
Park is today and the
other was off Lemon
Bay Drive, the current
location of the South
Venice Beach ferry.)
But in 1965 the
U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers began
construction of the
Intracoastal Waterway
on the west coast of
Florida. The waterway
would incorporate
Lemon Bay, which up
until then had been a
shallow body of water.
The Corps planned to
dredge a deep channel
right through the bay
to allow boat traffic.
For South Venice, that
meant the footbridges
had to go. At the time,
the residents launched
a vigorous campaign
to get the waterway
rerouted and save their
bridges. They even
staged a sit-in and tried
to face down the barges
as they moved south on
the bay. But they were
no match for what had
been designated a na-
tional security project,
and the Army Corps of
Engineers continued
construction.
A deal was struck. To
preserve beach access,
the Corps compen-
sated South Venice and
provided the funds for
the purchase of a ferry
and the construction of
docks. The footbridges
came down and the
new ferry, "Miss South
Venice," began her
now 45 years of service
carrying generations of
local residents to their
beach.
Actually, it was still
their "beaches" -
north and south, inter-
rupted by the county
beach. The single ferry
serviced both.
An effort was
launched to join the
beaches and the county
proposed a straight
trade simply a title
switch giving its
beach to South Venice
and taking ownership
of South Venice's North
Beach. It was a rare
no-brainer and the
deal was made. (The
old North Beach is
now part of Caspersen
Beach.)
There were still eight
acres of community-
owned property from
the now defunct North
Beach footbridge. It
became an orphan
property, unused. It
was not saleable in the
normal sense, since
development was
prohibited by virtue of
the original deed.
In the late 1990s, the
SVCA had formed the
South Venice Beach
Endowment Trust, a
permanent nonprofit

Park renovation a labor of love


By ED SCOTT
CORRESPONDENT

During the mid 1990s,
Indiana native Sharon
Sims needed relief from
arthritis, so, like many of
their current neighbors,
she and her husband,
Edward, moved to Florida
to escape the cold. They
initially owned a time-
share on Longboat Key.
"We decided when we
retired that we wanted to
come down here and join
the rest of the people
enjoying the heat," she
said. "We just fell in love
with the area."
But while Longboat Key
has its allure, the spec-
ter of hour-long waits
while the old Ringling
drawbridge was raised
or not operating prop-
erly drained the exclusive
island community of its
appeal. So the Simses
peered south and found
what they were looking
for in South Venice. For
the past 15 years they
have been residents of
The Plantation Golf &
Country Club.
Sims, 69, became
involved in her new neigh-
borhood early on after
Steve Lattmann, developer
of the St. Andrews Park
community, asked her
to start a social program
for the women residents.
She has served on the


board of the Plantation
Management Association,
the master association, for
the past eight years.
Currently the secretary,
she previously served as
president and treasurer.
One of the PMA board's
recent projects has been
the complete renovation
ofWexford Park, an aging
quarter-acre park with chil-
dren's amenities located on
the comer by the entrance
toWexford on the Green.
Like the old Ringling
bridge, the park began
to lose its appeal as it
aged. Sims does not have
grandchildren but she
says if she did, she would
not take them there. It's
unattractive. There are
more interesting places
to go and play, she said.
"So many people
thought the park belonged
to Wexford On The Green,
and a lot of people did not
even know it was there
because it was put in
when Plantation was first
developed," Sims said.
"The park's recreation,
toys, playthings were close
to 30 years old and had
lost their appeal."
When the slide broke,
rather than replace it,
they removed it.
"So there wasn't much
to do down there. It
wasn't very colorful and
it wasn't much fun," she
said. "We chose what


we thought would be
something colorful."
The park currently fea-
tures a fort-like structure
that was popular on 1980s
playgrounds, Sims said.
"Now we're putting in
some nice, shiny, bright-
colored (equipment),"
she said.
They also are changing
the park's name to
Plantation Community
Park "so people will know
that it is there and it is
for them."
Funds for infrastructure
enhancements have been
accumulating for a while
and board members de-
cided now is the right time
to act. They plan to come
in under $50,000 "but we
have the extra funds if
something comes up that
we need," she said.
Renovations will be
extensive.
"We're even replacing
the timbers that are in
the ground, surrounding
the play area," Sims said.
They also are putting in
heavy-duty mulch that
pats down like felt. There
will be two new slides,
three new swings and
a climbing apparatus,
among other amenities.
"It will be colorful, and
it will be inviting," she
said, "whereas the other
is sort of foreboding
looking right now."
While Plantation caters

board she has served for eight years.


to the senior set park
renovations are being done
primarily to appeal to
residents' grandchildren -
Sims said more parents of
young adults and school-
age children are moving
into Plantation.
"Slowly but surely we
are seeing more young
people," she said.
When renovations are
complete around the first
week of November, board
members and residents
will have a sense of pride
about what they have


accomplished, Sims said.
"That other playground
was like 30 years old, or
very close to it," she said.
"We kept it mowed and
we kept it looking nice,
but it just was there. This
will be something we can
all be proud of."
"It was there, but it did
not have much for anyone
to do there," echoed long-
time Augusta Villas resident
Adrianne Petrillo, 67, a
Connecticut transplant
who lives within walking
distance of the park. Aside


from the pool, Wexford
Park is the place her grand-
daughters Jenna, 8, Brooke,
5, and Natali Michaud, 11,
always want to go when
they visit. The renovation
"is great. Anything to keep
children busy."
"I just feel that if I live
some place, I have to
be a participant and a
happy participant," Sims
said. "I don't like it when
people don't care or don't
want to get involved,
because the community
is too important."


Are you career ready?


Meet Andrew Sink.
Recently returned
from Spain as part of an
alternative energy train-
ing program introduced
to him by State College
of Florida, he has gained
valuable hands-on
experience in solar pho-
tovoltaic, solar thermal,
biomass, geothermal and
hydraulic energy. He just
landed a choice job after
completing his associate
degree in engineer-
ing technology at SCF
while simultaneously
completing an intern-
ship at ETCO Inc., a local
manufacturing company.
Not everyone finds
a job and gains work
experience this quickly
in today's job market. In


fact, discovering the right
career field and qualify-
ing for thriving employ-
ment pipelines can be
daunting.
Yet recent reports show
that more than 3 million
' U.S. jobs remain unfilled.
* Some reports show that
nearly 50 percent of
employers struggle to fill
well-paying jobs those
requiring education and
training for career skills
beyond high school.
Almost two-thirds of all
U.S. jobs now require
some form of post-
secondary education
and that percentage is
growing. A slew of local
articles, data reports and
community forums on
the topic of filling the
"skills gap" in Sarasota
and Manatee have
recently pointed out that
good jobs are locally
available.
Skill requirements
have become technically
complex and job seek-
ers, now more than ever,
need to plan wisely for
successful entry into the


job market. State College
of Florida has more than
a half century of experi-
ence in preparing job
seekers for satisfying,
in-demand careers that
can lead to high-skill,
high-wage professions.
We provide quality and
affordable training in
critical need areas and
groom our students for
career success.
If you are seeking an
entry-level job or ready
to move up in your
career, SCF will work
hand-in-hand with you
to succeed. A good place
to start is by connecting
with an SCF student
development advisor
to learn more about
programs available and
how to outline a curricu-
lum pathway. Advisers
are trained professionals
who can offer guidance
in what it takes to
succeed.
You will want to check
out your local SCF
Venice campus with
many onsite programs
and high-tech labs


leading to high-skill,
high-wage jobs in such
areas as health sciences,
engineering technology,
construction manage-
ment technology, energy
technology management
and computer science.
Numerous specialty
certificates and degree
programs including
baccalaureate workforce
degrees are conve-
niently available at your
local SCF Venice campus.
After you register for
classes, take advantage
of your access to the SCF
Career Resource Center
and its advisers. The
center positions you for
job readiness during your
studies here with us and
prepares you to leapfrog
over job competitors. Even
after you graduate and
move on, the SCF Career
Resource Center will
remain available to you.
Michele Groves, new
adviser in the SCF Venice
Career Resource Center,
enjoys guiding students
to consider career
possibilities.


"Our SCF Career
Exploration class helps
guide students to select
careers based on their
personality, interests
and values," Groves said.
"We provide professional
career assessments, offer
new ways of thinking
about your work potential
and show you how to plan
individual career port-
folios and professional
networks. This semester,
we've completely remod-
eled the Venice campus
center and added new
computers and additional
staffing to support our
students and alumni."
As businesses gener-
ally favor experienced
applicants, our program
managers and Career
Resource Center advis-
ers broker meaningful
internships and job
shadowing with credible
businesses. Students not
only gain job skills and
experience from these
real-life employment set-
tings but learn corporate
culture skills such as
communications, work


ethics, collaboration and
problem-solving.
"We work hard to
get our students prime
opportunities to make
their individual value to
the company obvious.
An added bonus is that
sometimes interns like
Andrew Sink are hired for
full-time jobs by the com-
panies in which they are
interning," said Adrienne
Gould-Choquette, SCF
program manager for
emerging technologies.
Preparing for 21st-
century career readiness
is as close as a visit to
nearby SCF Venice.
Financial aid packages
and flexible class sched-
ules are available, too.
If you or someone you
know is looking for a job
or looking to upgrade
jobs, now is a good time
to contact SCF and
benefit from your local
career training experts.

Students get



Cat Eye for bike safety


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

While many people
are just getting out of
bed in the morning,
Venice Middle School
students are heading
out to school. Many of
them ride a bicycle to
school.
With the change in bus
schedules this year, VMS
got the luck of the draw
and has the early start
time: 7:30 a.m.
"It's still dark at that
time, and I worry about
the kids riding their bikes
to school," said Dr. Karin
Schmidt, VMS principal.
"I watch you as I drive,"
Schmidt told a group of
about 18 student riders.
"I think, 'If they knew
how little I can see of
them, they would think
about using reflective
gear on their bikes.'"
Schmidt and school
resource officer
Detective Rob Crane
gathered the children
into a classroom after
school Sept. 27 to

MILITARY NEWS
Army Pvt. Nicholas
M. Hertel has graduated
from the Fire Support
Specialist Advanced
Individual Training
course at Fort Sill,
Lawton, Okla.
The field artillery
specialists serve in intel-
ligence activities including
target processing in field
artillery, cannon bat-
talions, division artillery,
artillery and maneuver
brigade and headquarters
and fire support elements.
The course is designed
to train students to
establish, maintain and
operate radio and wire
communications and
speech security equip-
ment, including encoding
and decoding messages.
They also must prepare
and maintain daily staff
journals, fire support
situation maps, charts
and other fire support
and target processing
procedures, records
and documents. In
addition, students assist
in initiating requests for
field artillery, mortar,
naval gunfire and aerial
delivered munitions, and
emplace, maintain and
assist in the operation of
laser range finders, target
designation and night
observation devices.
Hertel is the son of
Michael and Kristen
Hertel, of Osprey.

discuss bicycle safety.
The discussion was
videotaped for viewing
in all VMS classrooms
to inform all other
students.
Crane handed out
a "Safe Riding Tips"
information sheet to the
students and went over a
few points, such as wear-
ing a helmet and making
sure all bicycle parts
function properly.



He is a 2011 graduate of
Venice High School.
Air Force Senior Airman
Stephanie M. Purdy
has deployed overseas
to a forward operating
base to serve in support

Operation Enduring
Freedom is the official
name given to anti-terror-
ism military operations
involving U.S. troops and
allied coalition partners.
Active duty and reserve

all branches of the U.S.
armed forces have been de-
ployed to support the war


"I'm proud of you
kids," Crane said. "You
are awesome and you
do follow the rules, but
there's a reason I have a
pet peeve about bicycle
safety. Do you know why
I have a pet peeve about
you riding bicycles across
Center Road?"
After a few guesses,
Crane gave his answer.
He spoke of the flower
garden at the school



against global terrorism
outside the borders of the
United States. U.S. troops
serve in South, Southwest
and Central Asia, the
Arabian peninsula, the
Horn of Africa, islands in
the Pacific and Europe.
Purdy is a radio

She is the daughter

Venice catches the spirit


FRAN VALENCIC
Homecoming is a
great time to get a
little crazy, and Venice
High School students
showed their spirit on
game night. Body paint,
headpieces and creative
T-shirts gave everyone


a good feeling about
how clever and creative
our Venice High School
Indians are.
Clubs took advantage
of the huge crowd for
some fundraising. Band
Boosters sold food and
Interact girls sold T-shirts
and several pink items
for their Relay For Life
team.
Venice High alumnus
Jackie Detert wept as
her daughter Brittany
was named homecom-
ing queen. Brittany is
a varsity cheerleader
and an honor student.
The standing-room-
only crowd erupted


in applause as Clint
Calhoun was named
homecoming king.
Later, after the hoopla,
volleyball coach Brian
Wheatley invited Clint to
give the pep talk before
the next volleyball game.
Clint is perfect for that
role as he is an outstand-
ing Special Olympics
athlete.
On top of it all Venice
won the football game.
Congrats to the class
of '87 celebrating their
reunion at the game.
Bravo, three cheers
and "Go Venice" to
everyone involved in
homecoming.


Celebrity seniors
Artists from the
Senior Friendship
Centers showed off
their wood carvings and
paintings in the solo
gallery of the Venice Art
Center. It was a perfect
opportunity for locals
to think about not just
working with artists at
the center but taking
advantage of artists
like wood carvers at
the Senior Friendship
Centers, where most
classes are $3.
The center is at 2350
Scenic Drive, Venice.

'Sea'ing and BBQing
Dolphins and turtles, decked out in all their hand-painted finery will
meet their sponsors for the first time tomorrow at the Venice Art Center in
a private party for sponsors and artists of the center's newest fundraiser,
SeaVenice. Soon, the SeaVenice creatures will move out into the commu-
nity for Snowbird Season before being auctioned off to the highest bidders
at a gala party at Venice Yacht Club next spring.
Soon they will head out to special places throughout the community. As media
sponsor for SeaVenice, the Venice Gondolier Sun will print a location map of
the creatures as soon as they have been placed. VAC is open daily from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. and on Saturday until 2 p.m. at 390 S. Nokomis Ave., on the island.
Meanwhile (as it will take some time to move 40 giant turtles and
dolphins) sign up for BBQ cooking lessons. The Swamp Boys Championship
BBQ Team will share its award-winning (32 grand championships) hints on
meat selection, trimming, marinades, rubs, cooking temperatures, sauces
and more this weekend at Rambler's Rest RV Resort in Venice. At the very
least you will be able to stun and amaze your friends at the next BBQ you
host at home. Call 941-493-4354 or 800-576-8565. At presstime there were
a couple spaces left for this amazing experience. Besides working with
experts, you will get to test competition-level products during the classes.
Then, stop by Venice Theatre for "How To Succeed in Business
Without Really Trying" which opened last night. For tickets, visit
www.venicestage.com or call 941-488-1115.

Lil Wayne opens skate

park in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS (AP) Lil Wayne showed off his beginner skateboarding skills
alongside a group of professional skateboarders Wednesday to mark the opening
of the artist's new Trukstop park in his hometown.
Lil Wayne told The Associated Press he started skating about a year and a half
ago when he saw and was impressed by the skating skills of a 9-year-old boy and
thought it looked interesting.
"I thought it would be just a hobby, and I thought only people with skills can
do it," he said. "When you finally get into it and you learn to like it, you'll quickly
learn to love it. It's more than just four wheels and a piece of wood."
The rapper, who turned 30 last Thursday and recently launched a skate-
boarding-inspired clothing line called Trukfit, said he was excited to share his
newfound passion with his hometown.
"I just want to help out my city, help out the people and the kids, give them
something to do, something they haven't done before," he said. "It's always good
to learn something new."
The new park occupies a building that survived the 2005 flooding. It was
constructed using recycled materials, will be run using solar energy and includes
all the features skaters love stairs with rails for sliding, skating embankments
and half pipes.
The rapper partnered with Mountain Dew and Glu Agency, a New York-based
advertising firm, to launch the new park, which will be open to the public seven
days a week, beginning Monday.
"There's such a pent-up demand for this place," said Jamal Henderson, the
director of marketing for Mountain Dew. "Young people want to skate, and now
they have a destination."
While much of the city has rebounded since Katnna hit, the Lower 9th Ward
has been slower to recover. Homes in the neighborhood were pushed off their
foundations, and many residents haven't returned. Blocks where homes once
stood are empty and overgrown with weeds.
The park will provide a gathering place in that part of the city.
In 2011, Lil Wayne gashed his head while skateboarding at a St. Louis-area
skateboard park. The accident required stitches and left a scar over his left eye,
but it didn't dampen his enthusiasm. He told those gathered for the park's
launch that he knows he won't land every trick, but the rush comes from trying.


Hello

October
I don't know about anyone else, but I
love October.
October usually symbolizes the start
of the season. Most consider "season"
to be when snowbirds come back and
pack our restaurants and stores and wear
shorts when it's 65 degrees. For me, the
start of the season is the beginning of
the holidays. October is when you can
decorate your porch with hay, witches
and pumpkins, November you take down
the witches and add the cornucopia and
December the lights go up and the house
smells of delicious home cooking. Ah,
season.
Either way you look at it, season is
a great time of year. Not only will our
favorite northerners be back to frequent
their restaurants of choice, see the holiday
plays and do some shopping, but also all
of us locals will see our town come alive
with holiday festivities.
The theaters will be starting their
holiday plays such as the Wizard of Oz.
And the local chorales are warming up for
their upcoming concerts.
October will be filled with Fall Festivals
as well. I hope to find any and every fun
event and let you know all of the details.
Also, our nearby cities like Tampa and
Orlando will have their theme parks
overflowing with spooky excitement for
Halloween lovers of all ages.
Pay attention this October and watch
the hot, slow days of summer drift away
as the cool nights and fun festivals invade
your weekends.

Bar Stool Open


PROVIDED BY GIRLS NIGHT OUT
On Saturday, GNO (Girls Night Out) will
again partner with nine Punta Gorda bars
in celebrating the fifth Anniversary of
"The Bar Stool Open" benefiting Dollars
For Mammograms. To date this event, and
the generosity of its participants, has
afforded over 1,600 women the oppor-
tunity to utilize mammogram services
that they would not have otherwise
been provided. Dollars For Mammograms
has also been able to expand from the
traditional screening mammogram into
diagnostic mammograms and breast
ultrasounds, which could not have been
done without the help and donations
from the communities the organization
serves. Denise Dull has chaired this event
for the past four years and is supported
by an amazing committee: Jill Ferguson,
Carol Young-Haitt, Kris Peterson, Judy
Poirer and Clare Donaldson. Additional
members of GNO volunteer their time
during the day to run the golf holes, sell
raffle tickets and assist with keeping over
400 golfers on track.
Join the celebration by stopping in at
any of the following participating loca-
tions before Saturday: Ice House Pub,


River City Grill, Slip-Knot Lounge, Phil's
41, Beef'O' Brady's Punta Gorda, Deans
South of the Border, Jack's on Marion, The
Celtic Ray or The Office and register your
foursome ($100 entry fee). The event is a
nine-hole miniature golf tournament that
offers anyone the opportunity to play and
win prizes. The day begins with a shotgun
start at your registering location at 10:30
a.m. and ends with a wrap up party at 6
p.m. at the Slip-Knot Lounge. Prizes will
be awarded throughout the day for best
and worst finishing scores. There will be
some special anniversary excitement as
well. Can't play that day? Stop in at any
of the participating locations and make a
donation.
"Dollars for Mammograms" is a 501(C)(3)
public foundation established solely
for the purpose of providing no-cost
mammograms to area women who are
uninsured or under-insured and cannot
afford the cost of a mammogram. For
more information about this foundation
go to www.dollarsformammograms.org.

filled event and anniversary celebration,

damaged eye. Now 19, Boogie serves as their
organization's mascot. A poster advertising
the upcoming Krazy Biker Katz Bike Fest on
Saturday, features a caricature of tough cat
Boogie, eye patch, missing teeth and all,

Get charged up to ride on Siesta Key!


By KC JONES
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Want to experience electrifying
freedom? Whether you have been bicy-
cling for years or you want to try some-
thing new, bicycling is fun, healthy and
a great way to see an area. Sarasota is
an excellent city to bicycle around. The
neighborhoods are lush and quiet. But
it may be Siesta Key beaches that bring
the most bliss. Because Siesta Key is so
attractive, crowds can consume prime
parking spots quickly. Again bicycles
are a super solution. You might be
concerned that you have to ride too far,
have to pedal too hard, or think it's too
hot, but an electric bicycle is a blast of
easy excitement.
If you've been sitting behind a desk
for the last 20 or 30 years, you might
be intimidated about getting back on
a bicycle. The advantage to using an
electric bicycle is you pedal as much as
your fitness level allows and over time
you pedal more and more. Be curious
and come visit Freedom For Electric
Bikes. Ironically, it's just feet away
from two other bike stores but owners
Michael and Deborah Weatherby
sell more Pedego Electric Bikes than
anyone else in Florida. You know you
are in the right place because the door
reads"Hello FUN." Don't worry; you
don't have to buy a bicycle to ride it.
You can rent an electric bike to tour
town for the day. But be warned, you


Road.
The ride
starts with a spectacular view from
the bridge to Siesta Key. You don't
even have to pedal up the incline just
hit the throttle and up you go. Plus
you get to coast down the other side;
a guiltless pleasure to indulge your
sense of freedom for sure.
Stop and watch the boaters and
people fishing at Bay Island Park.
It's a lovely spot to bird watch. You
might even spot a dolphin cruising the
channel. A short ride up the road and
you enter Siesta Village. Parking can
definitely be a challenge


but not for you or the others who rode
their bikes too. There are lots of local
favorites. Lelu Coffee Lounge is a hip
place to get a libation. Hang on the
comfy couch while you sip your coffee
and read, surf the Internet, make new
friends at the bar or people watch on
the patio. Jamie Reynolds mixes up a
mean margarita and makes marvelous
martinis. The secret family recipe carrot
cake is understandably famous. Loyal
snowbirds order the whole cake when
they come to town.
Making new friends, browsing the
shops and eating great food can be so

need an expert to tell you Siesta Beach
is superb; miles of powder sugar
soft, white sand and clear, calm and
warm blue water make it obviously
outstanding. Plus, the sand packs
down nicely at the water's edge so you
can bring your own bike to ride the
rippled tide.
After a fresh water shower at the
beach, you can continue to follow the

the split. Either loop back north on
Midnight Point Road or keep riding
south down Highway 758. Located at
the Highway 72 bridge, Captain Curt's
Restaurant is a good place to consider
stopping and reviving before you head
back. If you want just a light snack,
Captain Curt's clam chowder is very rich
and chock-full of clams. It's so popular
they ship it by the gallon to fans at a
flat rate. At least admire the mural as
you meander by to visit Siesta Key Bike
and Kayak. These bikes are perfect for
riding right on the packed sand beach.
With so many interesting places to
experience, your day on the bike will
seem to fly by. Watch the time; you
don't want to miss the spectacular
sunset. It's a peaceful way to give
yourself one last glimpse at the
glorious globe that has guided you on
your journey. Thankful for the freedom
in America and the gift of adventure
a bicycle provides, it's time to take the
road home and rest up for the next
ride.

KCJones is a league-certified
instructor with League of American
Bicyclists. She has been working in
bicycling advocacy and education since
2005. KC's column will take bike riders
from Sarasota through Venice, North
Port, Englewood Port Charlotte and
Punta Gorda week by week to show the
wonderfulbike-riding opportunities our
area offers.

Safety Tip:
When To Take The Lane

Bicycles are considered non-
motorized vehicles with the same
rights andsimilar laws as cars. But
because of the difference in size and
speed there are special consider-
ations on how to bicycle safely.

First, if there is a bike path, use
it. Unless you are traveling the
same speed as other traffic or
there is another safety issue,
cyclists should show support of
the cities'attempts to provide
safe passage for multiple forms
of transportation, and it's the
law. (Section 316.2065, F.S.)
Otherwise, bicyclists may either
ride single file or a maximum of
two abreast regardless of how
big the group. When there is
not 4 feet of clearance for a car
to safely pass, a bicyclist should
ride in the right tire-wear area of
the road to force the car to cross
the center line to go around
instead of trying to squeeze by.
Two cyclists can ride two abreast
and take the whole lane. It's
still important to be considerate
of drivers so frustration doesn't
lead to dangerous driving. At
times, it may be a good idea
to pull your bike over and let
several cars pass, or move to
the sidewalk. Pedestrians have
priority on sidewalks, so slow
down and announce yourself
with "passing on the left"
early and loud so you don't
run someone over. Remember
to wear a helmet and 'Share
the Road Ya'll!'

Why The Old Venice Pub?
Location. Location. Location.
Open since 2000, the Pub is a popular gathering place,
not just for its varied beer selection, but for its spectac-
ular location. You can sit out on the balcony in the fresh
air, hang out with your friends and people-watch to your
heart's content.
What to drink?
Beer. A lot of beer.
Though the Pub does have an impressive selection of
cigars, "smoke eaters"to take the cigar smoke away and
some lovely wines, clearly the stars of the place are the
beers.
"We have 15 beers on tap, and about seven of them
are constantly changing," manager Jennifer Pike said. "In
the bottle, we have a lot of domestics and imports, but
we don't have microbrews in the bottle much-we have
them on tap."
Can I watch the game?
For sports fans, the Pub has TV screens that line
the wall up above the bar. On Saturdays and Sundays,
they show all the games, even most of the blacked-out
ones.
"If we don't have on your game, ask for it and we'll put
it on."
What if I get hungry?
"We also work hand-in-hand with Anthony at
Bridgetown Dell. He brings us subs every Sunday."
Because the Pub doesn't sell food, you are allowed
to bring in your own food, or they can order some to be
brought to you.

Enjoy German food, music at Oktoberfest


By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Organizers expect up to 2,500 people
to attend the Punta Gorda Downtown
Merchants Association annual Oktober-
fest on Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The
event, which has humble origins, is rapidly
becoming a fall staple on the local entertain-
ment scene.
It all started in 2006, when Maria Von
Atzigen and her late husband, Franz, decided
to add a little Oktoberfest flavor to the grand
opening of their Swiss Connections building
and chocolate store, Swiss Chocolates+. They
imported a Swiss oompah band, served up
German food and libations and a good time
was had by all.
"Our opening just happened to be in
October, when Oktoberfest falls;'" Von Atzigen
said. "At that time everybody went to Cape
Coral for Oktoberfest, and we thought it
would be a good thing for the city:'
Von Atzigen soon joined the DMA board,
and President Jerry Presseller said there was
unanimous agreement that an annual Okto-


berfest would be a great way to get people
downtown during a slow time of the year.
"We started in 2008, so this is our fifth;' he
said. "Franz and I cooked all the bratwursts at
the first one, and it drew about 600 people:'
Attendance climbed steadily and then just
took off at last year's fest.
"We really got blown away last year; we
drew over 2,000' he said. "It was the first
time we brought in German vendors."
The large crowd expected for Friday's event
is a testament to the timing and quality of
the party the downtown merchants organize.
There are few major events this time of year,
and Southwest Florida is full of German,
Swiss and other European natives who relish
the thought of a local version of Oktoberfest.
Von Atzigen said,"There are Swiss and
German American clubs all over Southwest
Florida. People come from Naples and Bonita
up to Sarasota, North Port and also Arcadia.
Still, most of the revelers are Charlotte
County people looking to have a good time,
and Oktoberfest succeeds in delivering. First
and foremost, it's free; all you have to pay for
is the food and drink you consume.


And the food is authentic. You can
wrap your taste buds around schnitzel,
sauerbraten, potato pancakes, goulash,
sausages, sauerkraut, leberkaese and
roasted chicken. Much of it will be
prepared by Sandra Ruhland, chef and
co-owner with husband Rainer of Sandra's
restaurant, the popular new German
restaurant in Punta Gorda. Other vendors
include a German caterer, a German bakery
and River City Grill will be selling half-
pound hot dogs and German desserts.
Wine, schnapps, German and American
beer and commemorative glass beer mugs
will be available in Hector House Plaza.
To further enhance the atmosphere, the
music, of course, will be German and live. The
Dynamic Duo will be playing oompah music,
as will accordionist B. Lech. Despite the crowd,
there's always room for dancing in the streets.
Other entertainment includes a pony ride for
children, a Mercedes Benz antique car show
and a dirndl/lederhosen contest with cash
prizes for the winners. There is, in short, no
shortage of ways for a family to have some fun
without spending a lot of money.


Presseller said,"We're doing this in
cooperation with the Punta Gorda Chamber,
plus all the downtown merchants are volun-
teering to keep costs down!'
Oktoberfest will be located along Taylor
Street in downtown Punta Gorda, with the
center of the action in the area in front of the
old courthouse and across the street in Hector
House Plaza, a beautiful little park where the
spirits will be sold. Free parking is available
in the city parking garage right next door, in
other vacant parking lots and on side streets.
Seating and tables for 800 people will be
provided, but the DMA encourages you to
bring your own portable seats during the
busiest hours between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Coolers are not allowed.
Many of the regular attendees, as well as
the DMA merchants working the event, will
be remembering the passing of Franz von
Atzigen, who helped get Oktoberfest off the
ground and in the early years spent many
hours laboring over hot grills.
"We're not planning anything formal"'
Presseller said,"but we are going to lift a
glass to Franz:'

Rubbing shoulders with the best


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Donald Fisher is out to make Venice a major
mecca for BBQ.
Last spring he held a school for BBQ contest
judges and chaired the Suncoast BBQ & Blue-
grass Bash in Venice. This weekend, at Rambler's


Rest RV Resort, Fisher is overseeing a two-day,
competition-style cooking technique class. A
trained BBQ judge, Fisher said he considers BBQ
and Bluegrass"folk art."
"At the very least, students will learn to wow
their neighbors at the next BBQ party;' he said."I
did a pork roast with injections a few weeks ago,


following directions I learned in school and it was
much better than I could have done before."
Fisher is a trained BBQ judge. He knows
good BBQ when he tastes it. He went to BBQ
cooking school to learn how to do it himself so he
wouldn't have to wait until the next contest to
eat good BBQ.
The lead teacher at the Venice school will be
Rob Bagby who heads up the award-winning
Swamp Boys Championship BBQ Team. The
team has won some 32 Grand Championships,
25 Reserve Grand Championships, 92 Top-five
finishes and was Number One Overall National
Champion in 2009. The list of awards is too long
to print in one small article. Bagby will be assisted
by Jimmy Brod of the Everglades BBQ team.
"He is another championship-quality cook,'
Fisher said.
The two-day school will cover everything
from meat selection and trimming to injections,

rubs, cooking temperatures, meat temperatures,
sauces and more. Students also will have the
opportunity to try products from many of the
country's leading producers of seasonings, sauces
and other ingredients used for BBQ.
Students also will learn presentation in case
they go on to enter professional BBQ contests.
Tuition and all expenses for the two-day course
is $500 for one person and $200 for the spouse.
The first class begins at 1 p.m. Saturday. It is
the only such class planned for this area for the
remainder of the year, Fisher said.
Rambler's Rest RV Resort is at 1300 North River
Road, Venice. For information or to enroll, if space
remains, call 941-493-4354 or 800-576-8565. The
next Suncoast BBQ Bash & Bluegrass Bash will
be April 20 at Venice Municipal Airport's festival
grounds, with proceeds going to the Suncoast
Foundation for Handicapped Children Inc.

Venice is all about cars Sunday


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Head to Venice Sunday for the 25th
annual Collector Car Show.
Organized by the Venice region
of the Antique Automobile Club of
America, the show annually takes over
Centennial Park in downtown Venice
plus the streets to the parks'east and
west as well as the west-bound side
of West Venice Avenue from U.S. 41 to
the tennis courts at Harbor Drive. Food
vendors are on Nassau Street at the
west end of the park but cars fill most
if not all the remaining space.
In addition to winners from national
shows of the Antique Car Club of
America, expect to find cars dating
to the turn of the previous century,
modem musde cars, modified cars,
Corvettes, Thunderbirds, vintage Rolls,
Packards and the like plus imports and
sports cars. This year, because the city


is celebrating its 85th anniversary, the
car show will feature the city's 1926
fire truck, affectionately known as
"Old Betsy."To keep it company, Show
cochairman Bill Trier is bringing his 1978
LaFrance fire engine and club member
Kevin Lynch is bringing his 1968 Pirsch
and 1935 Chevrolet engines, Trier said.
"We will give about 60 awards this
year";' cochairman Gary Felker said.
"There are two Best of Show trophies
- one for antique and collector cars
and one for modified and custom cars."
In past years, Trier said there have
been as many as 230 cars. If the phone
calls received in recent weeks by Felker
is an indication, that number could be
topped this year. Both men said they
usually get as many cars signing in at
the gate as they do pre-registering.
Preregistration definitely was up this
year, Felker said.
"The phone has been ringing off the
wall,"he said.


Trier and Felker have been cochairmen
for three years. The day of the show
they will wear multiple hats with their
anniversary T-shirts and also bring
vehides to the show. Trier said there
are about 45 specific jobs connected
with the show and that several people
handle at least two. Members usually
also serve as judges a huge job in
itself with all those cars and at least 60
decisions to be made.
An average of 10,000 people attend
the annual show although Felker
thinks that estimate is low and expects
it to be topped this year.
Cars must arrive between 8 a.m. and
11 a.m. when judging begins. Awards
are presented at 3 p.m. Winners must
be present to win. Car owners pay $25
per vehicle at the gate.

veniceaaca.com or call 493-3780 or
408-9601.

Gasparilla Inn hosts open house


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

One of America's grand old resorts,
the Gasparilla Inn & Club on Boca Grande
invites members of this area to an open
house from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 10.
The resort which has been the vaca-
tion destination of the likes of President
G. H. Bush and his family and such note-
worthy celebrities as the late Thomas
Edison, Henry Ford and Katharine
Hepburn, will open for the 99th winter
season the following day.
Open houses are relatively new
to this resort which has maintained
a low profile for most of its history,
eschewing publicity out of deference to
their guests. While this is the seventh
such event, it is being held before
the arrival of resort guests for that is
another unusual trait of the Gasparilla
Inn it remains a seasonal although
in recent years the resort has added
a week-long summer season that
coincides with July 4.
With the exception of local residents
who are members of the"Club,"few area
residents have likely ever set foot on
the resort's gracious croquet lawn nor
entered its stunning dining room which
is graced by white columns and potted
palms.
Recent renovations and the restora-
tion of the front porch make this open
house all the more special. Both the
lobby and living room areas have a fresh
new look and a new boutique shop,
aptly named the Inn Boutique has been
added.


"The kitchen was our big project this
year;,"' resort spokesman Kristi Fowler
said.
The behind-the-scenes tour offered
during the open house will include
these areas as well as a view of the
Presidential Suite, several guest rooms
and cottages, the Inn Bakery, the casual
Pink Elephant restaurant, BZ's for drinks
and the renovated kitchen. Chef Peter
Timmins and his team will be on hand
and will present samples of their work in
the main dining room.
Resort representatives also will be
on hand to talk about the inn history,
club memberships and special getaway
packages.
While not nearly as large as such
grand old resorts as the Broadmoor in
Colorado Springs or The Homestead in
Virginia, the inn has its own appeal and
tropical stateliness. It is the sort of place
that people return to year after year.
"Some even ask for the same rooms;'
Fowler said. "Many came here as children
and still return."
The resort's dining room is open to
the public for breakfast and dinner, she
added. Reservations are suggested,
especially in season. During October the
resort will offer Welcome-back packages
with special rates for stays from Sunday
through Thursday. Guests may choose
European or modified American.
Gasparilla Inn & Club is at 500 Palm
Ave., Boca Grande. For information,
visit www.the-gasparilla-inn.com
or call 877-403-0599 (toll-free) or
941-964-4500.

Sports enthusiasts love cheering for their
favorite teams at the End Zone Sports Grille in
Englewood. Bartender Kevin Carter/'The Sunday
Football Specialist;'creates huge signs, attaches
them (using Velcro) to TVs, and directs fans to sit
where they can followthe action of their favorite
teams. Often, according to longtime employee
and head cook, Doug Smith, regular viewers form
lasting friendships as a result of sitting together
and watching their favorite players win or lose
during a particular season."People even get
engaged here," he exdaimed."You can saythat we
are a sort of"love connection."
Greg Lyon and John McCann, co-owners of
the End Zone, graduated from the same police
academy and have remained friends ever since.
Both retired from the N.Y. and NJ. Port Authority
in 1997 and moved to the Englewood area where
they opened the End Zone Sports Grille."Most
of our 30 employees have been with us since we
opened 15 years ago;'said Greg. He is proud of the
fact that they never have had to lay off personnel
due to downturns in the economy."You are only

as good as the people that work for you in this
business;'he explained.
The End Zone's owners and staff are proud to
support the Englewood community. They donate
moneyto local school bands, sports teams,


and cheerleaders. They also contribute to food
banks and"Meals on Wheels." Head cook Smith
and his seven-member crew served 350 free
Thanksgiving meals last year at the End Zone."It's
one of the happiest times of my life' said Smith


who went on to say that individuals and area
businesses donate food and volunteer to serve
meals. The End Zone is a member of Englewood
Helping Hands, a group of businesses dedicated to
assisting people by sponsoring food drives.
A separate function room that can accommo-
date as many as 60 people is available at the End
Zone at no charge, and a variety of daily contests
and activities are scheduled during the week.
On Monday Jim Wasowski, a retired teacher,
conducts"Trivia at the End Zone." In the summer
40-50 participants split up into teams that
compete for cash prizes. That number doubles
during the season, and Wasowski recom-
mends that players reserve tables. On Tuesday
dart leagues compete, and Thursday through
Sunday., the very popular"Free Texas Hold'em"
games draw crowds.
The End Zone is located at 2411 S. McCall
Road. in Englewood. They offer a full bar, and
their menu includes a wide range of appetizers,
soups, sandwiches, burgers, salads, and pizzas. A
credit card minimum of $10 is required. Kids 10
years and younger can dine for $5.25, and a new
$6 lunch menu is available Monday Saturday
from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Bill and Kathy Baker
Sunnybreeze Golf Course: Affordable, natural, relaxed
When you step out onto the Sunnybreeze Golf Course, you know you're somewhere special, somewhere
different. There are no houses backing up to the fairways, and no highway noise to break the spell.
Instead,you're surrounded by 200-year-old oak trees, pine trees, marshes, ponds and wildlife.
The relaxed pace at Sunnybreeze matches its tranquil surroundings. "We're a family friendly course,
and we allow walkers at all times of the day," said Bill Baker, who owns Sunnybreeze with his wife,
Kathy.
Sunnybreeze is open to the public but offers membership options too. For a one-time "partnership fee"
of $750 or $1000, plus $500 for each additional family member, golfers can lock in lifetime daily, monthly
or annual golfing rates. So regardless how much rates may increase from year to year, Lifetime Members'
rates will never increase.
Bill and Kathy Baker moved to the area from Michigan in 1974 and served as managers of the course
until they bought it in 1977. It began as a nine-hole course but had 27 holes by 1984. In 1991, the Bakers
built a 15,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, which was a casualty of Hurricane Charley in 2004.
The couple rebounded with an outdoor lunch spot -- Bistro on the Green -- outside of the pro shop,
complete with an authentic Chickee Hut built onsite by Florida Seminole and Miccosukee Indians. The
bistro has a large lunch menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and more, including the daily special of $1 hot
dog and $1 draft beer.
Today, Sunnybreeze offers golfers a choice of a picturesque yet challenging 18-hole course or a nine-
hole par three course.
Sunnybreeze's friendly, relaxed atmosphere is due, in part, to their longtime staff members who make
sure every golfer feels welcome. Pat Rodman has been assisting in the pro shop since 1999. Food service
manager Amy Kyre and course superintendent Rob Cooley make sure those areas run smoothly. Lessons
are also available through instructor/coach Dave Faulk and LPGA pro Bonnie Bryant.
Sunnybreeze often hosts charity events and fundraisers for groups. They also welcome all kinds of
business and social groups that want to schedule regular golf outings.
Sunnybreeze is located at 8135 SW Sunnybreeze Road, technically in Arcadia but near Ft. Ogden. Their
convenient location on the Charlotte/DeSoto county line makes them a piece of serenity that's accessible
from all directions.
The course is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. You'll find directions and more
information on their website, www.sunnybreezegolf.com or call them at 863-494-2521. Bill,
Kathy and the rest of the Sunnybreeze family is waiting to welcome you.

Beans and Seeds


By TOM LEGROS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Between the late afternoon rush of gamblers
seeking to exercise their arms at the slots in
a neighboring casino and those wanting to
exercise by lifting beer mugs from the bar while
watching football on TV, an oddly named band
sought to entertain them.
Playing everywhere from daycares to watering
holes, Beans and Seeds have established them-
selves as one of the hardest working acoustic
duos in Southwest Florida.
The fans were sparse on the humid Saturday
evening they were playing at Beef'O' Brady's in
Punta Gorda. It was the first Saturday of college
games and since Florida is still technically out of
season, the typical tourists and snowbirds were
absent. Playing "Summer Breeze"by Seals and
Crofts seemed almost contradictory given their
surroundings.
However the lack of listeners and wind did not
diminish the energy exhibited by the two. They
played several sets throughout their three-hour
performance.
Created in 2007, Beans and Seeds sprouted
from the rich earth of the Guitar Army gather-
ings in Gilchrist Park. Beans, also known as Jaime
Garza, met Seeds, Mark Cangelosi.
"Although some may think the name has an
alternate meaning, the way we came up with
it is quite innocent;'said Cangelosi. Beans can
mean pills and seeds can refer to marijuana in
street slang.
Garza's nickname came from his childhood
when he was called garbanzo beans by his
friends. "My last name reminded people of
cantaloupe seeds which was shortened to seeds;'
said Cangelosi. The Beans and Seeds name was
born.
Garza is originally from "just outside" Detroit,
Michigan."From about the age of 71 have been
interested in music;'said Garza. His mother
arranged for piano lessons and Garza was
hooked for a lifetime.
He moved to Englewood with his family and
started a paper-supply business in 2004.
Cangelosi is from Staten Island and began
playing guitar in 1966, later moving into radio
%a


broadcasting in Florida and finally settling in
Port Charlotte in 2000. He played with various
bands over the years including The Apollo
Sweepers and The Road Toads. He also did a
stint in the United States Marines where he was
stationed as a broadcaster in Japan for the Far
East Network.
Garza likes to perform music from the golden
age of rock, whereas Cangelosi likes songs from
the'70s. Considering he was a radio DJ then, his
passion for'70s ballads comes as no surprise.
Their tone is soft and can seem to meld into
the background at times, which is a good thing.
"We like to play in such a way where patrons
can have a conversation with the person next to
them without yelling;'said Cangelosi.
Their song selection is diverse and includes
some original work. Typical southwest Florida
bar songs top the list of most requested.
However they have their dislikes.
"I don't think any musician likes it when the
audience requests"Freebird" or"Stairway to
Heaven."The songs can be long and are played so
often as to become cliche," said Cangelosi. "But
we'll play those and just about anything for our
fans;" he added.
Since 2007 Beans and Seeds have been busy.
They are playing four or more locations every
week and cover from Sarasota down to Ft. Myers.
Recently they have been hired by Woody's in
Cape Coral and St. James City to play their loca-
tions every weekend until May 2013.
"This has become bigger than I ever expected.
At times it can be a challenge balancing work,
home life, and performing'said Garza.
They also make the rounds playing at Zeke's
on Lemon Bay, Alli-Gators at the Port Charlotte
Town Center Mall and a variety of other locations
throughout the area. But that's not all they do.
"We will play at daycares, assisted living facili-
ties, and for charity. We'll go anywhere we can
make people happy;'said Cangelosi.
Although typically a duo, the band does add
additional members such as Ken Giunta from Ace
Drums in Port Charlotte for some performances.
Beans and Seeds will be performing on
Saturday at Alli-Gators in the Port Charlotte Town
Center Mall from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Here's an excellent answer to our first"Readers Rock"question, submitted by Leo Hebert of
Rotonda West. What was the first single pop/rock song you ever purchased?
In early 1956, a childhood friend introduced meto the music of Little Richard. This kind of rhythm and
blues wasn't played on the local New Bedford, Mass. radio stations. They played Patti Page, Guy Mitchell,
etc. To buy my first 45 rpm, a copy of Ready Teddy/Rip It Up by Little Richard, in June of 1956, we had to
go to a little-known record shop that carded Jazz and R&B. We knewthere was something spedal about
this new"rockin" music and ended up playing just that 45 for weeks! (PS. while reading Mad Magazine.)

This is your chance to participate in UPBEAT by tapping into your personal musical memory. The most
interesting selection and a new question will appear in this column weekly. Just provide, in 100 words
or less, your answer (and a photo of the experience if you would prefer) to the following question and
submit to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than noon this Friday, October 5. Include your name and city.
This week's question: Who do you think is the greatest rock guitarist of all time and why?

October 13 at the Edison Pops Concert, Punta Gorda. Here are a few tidbits about the band
members, according to their website: Steve Lavalley (Paul) has hobbies that include flying kites
and trampolines. Chuck Noonan (John) names a classic John Lennon quote "Life is what
happens while you are busy making other plans."The favorite musical moment of Donovan
Christenson (George) was meeting Carl Perkins. Dave Radisson (Ringo) is the band's historian
and enjoys restoring old corvettes. And veteran entertainer Karkey Karkalits, keyboardist,
recalls playing grand piano on stage with Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians.

Andy, John and Roger Taylor were all members of 80s pop band Duran Duran,
but were not related.
John Lennon sings "cranberry sauce" at the end of "Strawberry Fields Forever."
Singer Marvin Gaye once tried out for a running back position with the Detroit Lions.
Scotsman George Young, of the Easybeats, had a 60s hit with "Friday on my Mind." He later
helped his brothers, Malcolm and Angus, in starting their band AC/DC,
who became classic 80s hard rockers.
Johnny Nash was the first American to reach the charts with a reggae tune,
"Hold Me Tight:' in 1968.

neglects
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: Will you
please do a column on
shingles? I have gone
through 12 weeks of the
nastiest, worst illness
possible. I never hear
anything on TV about
it. -J.C.
ANSWER: I'll have
another go at shingles.
Others probably think
I overdo it. But it's such
a common problem
of older people that it
deserves repetition.
Shingles is the work
of the reawakened
chickenpox virus that
has been asleep in nerve
cells ever since a person
was infected, usually in
childhood. It's a safe bet
to say you were infected
even if you don't recall it;
more than 95 percent of
adults were.
The rash of shingles
usually disappears in
two to four weeks. Pain,
however, can stay with
you. The pain is now
called postherpetic
neuralgia. In making the
trip to the skin, the virus
damaged the nerve roots
that it crawled down to
reach the skin. Pain is a
consequence of the nerve
injury.
A large number of
treatments exist for this
aftermath of shingles. One
is amitriptyline, whose
primary use is relief of
depression. It also has
pain-relieving properties
in doses lower than what's
given for depression.
Neurontin (gabapentin) is
a seizure-control medi-
cine that often is success-
ful in suppressing pain.
The extended-release
form of this drug, called
Gralise, is given only once
a day. Lyrica (pregabalin)
has had a good record
in quieting postherpetic
neuralgia.
Lidocaine skin patches,
placed on the skin where
pain is felt, are another
way to ease pain without
taking an oral medicine.
Lidocaine is a numbing
agent. The latest innova-
tion for shingles treatment
is Qutenza, another
skin-patch medicine. The
doctor has to apply this
patch, and lets it stay on
the skin for an hour. Then
the doctor removes the
patch, and the effect of the
medicine lasts for three
months. It is expensive.
In cases where no
treatment brings relief,
opioids pain relievers
of the morphine family
- have a place in treat-
ment, so long as they are
supervised carefully by
the doctor.

DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: I heard
that heart attack risk
rises when using the
antibiotic azithromycin.
I have occasional bouts
of bronchitis for which
I take this medicine. It
usually works well for me.
Is it safe? M.E
ANSWER: Azithromycin
(Zithromax) is a popular
antibiotic. It's been found
that cardiovascular
deaths (heart attacks)
have occurred with
greater frequency than is
expected when using this
medicine. The increase in
death rate is very small,
and it probably results
from a disturbance in the
heart's electrical activity.
You shouldn't stay away
from azithromycin if you
truly need it.
Many cases of bronchi-
tis are viral-caused and
don't respond to antibiot-
ics. That's a point worth
remembering when
taking any antibiotic.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: I suffered
from an enlarged pros-
tate, so I was sent to a
urologist. He checked for
cancer, but I don't have
it. He put me on Flomax
and Avodart. After three
years, the doctor said the
medicines were no longer
working and that I had to
have surgery or my blad-
der would be damaged
and I would have to carry
a bag for the rest of my
life. I am 57. I had a trans-
urethral resection of the
prostate, TURP. It's been
two months, and I still
am passing blood clots. Is
this normal. J.G.
ANSWER: It's normal to
bleed after a TURP, but it's
not normal to be bleed-
ing two months after the
procedure.
Give the urologist a
call. Let him examine you
again and determine why
the bleeding is lasting this
long.

Crispy cookies


Dear Heloise: Desperate
for a crispy cookie, but
tired of the soft, chemical-
tasting ones from the
grocery store, I stuck a
store-bought chocolate-
chip cookie in the toaster
oven at 350 degrees for
about five minutes. The
edges and parts of the
bottom were actually dark
brown. After cooling a
bit, it tasted delicious and
crisp.
I'm glad I didn't dis-
cover this trick earlier in
my life, or I'd probably
be 10 pounds heavier. -
Elizabeth D., via email
Love your hint, and it
can be a trick to make
warm, almost-homestyle
cookies from store-
brought. Please do "test"
the time and temperature
so they don't burn.
- Heloise

Dipping bread
Dear Heloise: Many
restaurants serve bread
with olive oil to dip it in,
but I don't always want
to have to go out to a res-
taurant to get it. So, I've
started making it myself
at home. Any small dish
of oil mixed with freshly
ground pepper, pepper
flakes, minced garlic or
other spices will do. I like
to add Parmesan cheese
on top for a delicious
appetizer. Gwen R. in
Tennessee
Great money-saving
hint, and here's another
bread hint from Betty
in Huntsville, Ala. She
says: "I've baked bread
for years, and I've found

BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

that by laying each baked
loaf on its side, it is much
easier to slice. You will
be slicing from side to
side instead of from top
to bottom, which also
gives more uniform
slices. I also use a serrated
knife, which is a must."
- Heloise

Dry white wine
Dear Heloise: When
recipes call for a "dry"
white wine, could you
specifically tell me which
white wines are consid-
ered "dry"? M.E, via
email
Well, a dry wine is one
that is not sweet! When
cooking or drinking, a
good general guideline for
a dry white wine would
be a Sauvignon Blanc or
Pinot Grigio. Heloise

Bottle basic
Dear Heloise: As I emp-
tied my specialty mustard
bottle, which is plastic,
I decided to wash it out
to use as a honey bottle.
It has a tight-locking lid,
so ants can't get into the
good stuff. Dorothy T.,
Omaha, Neb.
