District


says



schools


safe

By TOM CHANG,
MERAB-MICHAL FAVORITE
and ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITERS
Schools in Sarasota County are
reacting to the tragic Connecticut
school massacre Friday that claimed
the lives of 20 first-graders and six
school staffers by going over lockdown
procedures, reassessing security and
offering to help students cope.
But school officials are offering few
specifics yet on what, if any, security
upgrades will be made.
"Our security measures are strong,"
said Gary Leatherman, director of
communications at Sarasota County
schools. "We want people to know we
have a very strong system in place.
We're consistently re-evaluating the
process with security. "
Leatherman said Superintendent Lori
White has been in contact with school
security people across the county.
"We're in discussions, but noth-
ing is concrete as far as changes,"
Leatherman said. "We had a working
system in place for about a decade.
We're continuously more stringent in
our policies and we're always looking
to improve.
"There are 3,000 cameras in schools
across the district," Leatherman
said. "The district spends $2 million
on school security (cameras, main-
tenance) including school security
officers and school resource officers."
Elementary schools in Sarasota
County do not have school resource
officers unlike the middle and high
schools. But Scott Lempe, COO for
Sarasota County Schools, said in an
ABC-7 TV report he remains comfort-
able with the security at all 24 public
elementary schools in the county,
that the buildings are safe and secure
and not easy for strangers to access.
Traumatic events like the shoot-
ings at Newtown, Conn., often evoke
heightened awareness in the commu-
nity, according to Tim Gissal, a school
psychologist for Sarasota County.
"We're trying to not get people to
overreact," Gissal said.
Gissal said children's responses to
such traumatic events differ with age
and there's no single formulaic way to
treat all individuals since everybody
handles trauma differently.
"Silence hurts," Gissal said. "For
some students and staff, events like
these trigger an immediate response."
The shootings at Columbine High
School and Virginia Tech reinforced
the need for safe security measures
and routine codes, Gissal said.
"The major goal is to keep children
safe and secure," Gissal said. "We're
doing the best we can."
To better cope with such events,
Gissal suggests listening to your child,
and responding in a developmentally
appropriate fashion. Also, limit their
exposure, don't get preoccupied, give
children unconditional love and get
into a routine.
Leatherman said a reminder was
sent to area schools that counselors
are available, but the shootings are not
up for discussion in the classrooms.

VPD boosts school presence


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
As residents in Newtown,
Conn., mourn the loss
20 children and six staff
members in one of the
deadliest school shootings in
the nation's history, Venice
police have increased patrols
around area schools and day
care centers.
Venice Police Chief Tom
McNulty said the heightened
police presence will continue
throughout the week.
"It's just to build confi-
dence as the parents bring


kids to school," McNulty
said, "so parents can see us
out there."
"This is a community is-
sue. You don't want your kids
feeling like they aren't safe in
school.
"It gives everybody a
chance to de-escalate. This
has hit the heart of America."
All week long VPD has
been sending officers to
private, parochial and
public schools even to
child care centers in an
effort to touch base with

Commission trio votes to sell spa


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Within minutes of what
was supposed to be a
discussion Tuesday on
the future operation and
development of Warm
Mineral Springs, North Port
City Commissioner Cheryl
Cook made a motion to sell
the 81-acre day spa in its
entirety.
Shocked, the other city
commissioners wanted to
engage in a slightly differ-
ent conversation. However,
the outcome didn't change.
The board voted 3-2, with
commissioners Jim Blucher
and Tom Jones dissenting,


and Cook, Mayor Linda
Yates and Commissioner
Rhonda DiFranco agree-
ing, to sell the Springs. The
meeting abruptly ended
without the board hashing
out a short-term plan.
Two years ago, the city
and Sarasota County jointly
purchased Warm Mineral
Springs for $5.5 million.
In July, the boards met
to direct staff to create a
proposal for any businesses
interested in operating and
developing the Springs,
which boasts an 87-degree,
mineral-rich lake frequent-
ed by international bathers.
Staffs recently proposed
a 74-page invitation to


negotiate, or ITN. In late
November, North Port com-
missioners voted 3-2, again
with Blucher and Jones
dissenting, to reject the
ITN. Commissioners asked
for a joint meeting with
Sarasota County. Instead,
county commissioners
responded by asking city
commissioners to explain
their concerns about and
objections to the ITN and
respond in 30 days.
City commissioners met
last week for more than 16
hours over two days to dis-
cuss the ITN. They eventually
agreed to break and have a
meeting Tuesday to continue
talks. They also planned


on discussing a short-term
agreement about what to
do with the Springs after
the agreement with Cypress
Lending of Naples, which
manages the spa, runs out on
June 30, 2013.
"We rejected the ITN,"
Cook said. "We are a sov-
ereign governmental body.
We are not subjugated to
the county. We are an
entity of ourselves. I
thought we were just
accommodating them
(county commissioners' re-
quest for objections to the
ITN). Now it's time to move
forward. They decided not
to have a joint meeting.

Sex crime alleged in August incident


AVenice man has been
charged with molesting a
4-year-old.
According
to a
Sarasota
County
Sheriff's
Office
S report:
The
JAWORSKI alleged
incident
took place on Aug. 13. A
woman who was renting
a room from John M.
Jaworski at the time said
she witnessed the child
and Jaworski go into his
bedroom.
When they came out
two hours later the child
sat down on the floor,
pulled her diaper open
and rubber her genital
area. The witness asked
the child what was
wrong. The child said, "I
don't want him to change
my diaper anymore."
When the Department
of Child and Family
Services investigated
a day later, the child's
mother and grandmother
said they didn't believe
Jaworski touched the
child inappropriately. But
when Jaworski walked
into the residence and
sat down, the child
became visibly upset,
hid behind the sofa and
would not approach
the investigator until
Jaworski left.
Hours later, the child
arrived at the South
County Child Protection

Center, repeatedly saying
Jaworski had not touched
her privates.
"It appeared that
the child victim was
coached as to what she
should say," wrote the
investigator.
Six weeks later the
child was again inter-
viewed by DCF This
time she said Jaworski
touched her privates at
the house, and that she
saw his.
Jaworski, 61, 200 block
Redwood Road, Venice,
was arrested and charged
with lewd and lascivious
behavior with a victim 12
or under. Bond was not
available.

Unauthorized
traffic stop
A 68-year-old North
Port man was arrested
after he pulled a gun
on a man
during what
amounted
to an un-
authorized
traffic stop.
According
to a
Sarasota
MAERZ
County
Sheriff's Office report:
Paul M. Maerz Jr.
waived the 26-year-
old driver of a white
van over near Bird


Bay Plaza in Venice
and scolded him for
speeding.
The victim reportedly
apologized and drove
away, only to find Maerz
had continued to follow
him. In North Venice
they both pulled over
and exited their respec-
tive vehicles, with Maerz
holding his hand behind
his back.
Maerz said he was
going to get the young
man's license tag. The
victim stood in front
of the license plate,
obstructing Maerz's
view.
Standing 5 feet away,
Maerz then allegedly
pulled a small firearm
and told the van's driver,
"Go ahead and touch me
and I'll blow your ----ing
head off."
Maerz, 4400 block
Whispering Oaks Drive,
North Port, was tracked
to Laurel Road near
Interstate 75, where
he was arrested and
charged with aggravated
assault. Bond was set at
$25,000.

SPRINGS
FROM PAGE 1

I'm ready to move on."
Jones asked Cook if
there was an intended
buyer the city was going
to sell the Springs to and
if she meant the entire
Springs, as the city only
owns a half interest in
the acreage.
Cook said she was
unaware the ownership
was actually split 50-50
and wanted the city's
portion sold.
Yates said she didn't
favor any public/private
partnerships such as a
hotel or other projects
in which public funds
would help private
developers enhance the
Springs.
The county must agree
to the sale, or it can't hap-
pen. It could also choose
to buy out the city.


After the meeting,
Blucher said the county
will likely be disap-
pointed with the board's
actions and could bring
a lawsuit against the city.
He said the spa could be
shut down.
"This takes us back
to when there used to
be hostility between the
city and county," he said.
"We have been sued by
the county in the past.
We had made such good
strides over the years."
Jones, who strongly
objected to the sale of
the Springs, called the
vote a "bombshell."
"I'm not sure this was
done legally," he said.
"We did not advertise
discussion of the sale of
Warm Mineral Springs.
The public didn't know
about this. They didn't
get to have a say in this
decision."
According to Barbara


REACTIONS TO THE
VOTE TO SELL
Current Warm Mineral Springs
general manager Gene Vaccaro
thought that Tuesday's decision by
the North Port City Commission to
sell the day spa was just"an interim
pause." He said if Sarasota County
does not approve of the decision to
sell, it would be a moot point.
"As far as I'm concerned, there
was a lot of misinformation, a lot
of inconclusive information and
a lot of inconclusive discussion as
there has been for the last month
or two,"Vaccaro said after Tues-
day's meeting."I agree with Mayor
(Linda) Yates that the business
of Warm Mineral Springs should
remain in private hands. I agree
100 percent with that."
Vaccaro said recent presenta-
tions on the mineral-rich water of

Petersen, director of
the First Amendment
Foundation, commis-
sioners might consider
redoing the meeting af-
ter properly advertising


the Springs have been inaccurate.
A recent test ordered by the county
last month showed the water is
free of toxins, including six types
of phthalates that were suspected
of coming from plastic tarp and
ropes put in place in the 1980s
in an effort to protect potential
archaeological artifacts that may
be buried underwater.
"You can do tests in 1970, in
1980, 1990, 2010 or 50 years from
now you are going to get
numbers that are different every
time,"Vaccaro said."The Springs is
thousands and thousands of years
old. To take a microcosm of scien-
tific testing and apply it to the
whole expanse of the existence of
this asset, it's unfair to the asset."
Springs director of community
outreach, Yuri Kaplun, noted the
water, which is 87 degrees year-
round and contains 51 minerals,

discussion of the sale of
the Springs.
"When taxpayers find
out they voted to sell
the property without
any public input, they


is shown to benefit swimmers'
bodies.
Vaccaro said he disagrees with
the commission's talk about the
public continuing to put money
into the Springs or private busi-
ness after it's developed by the
private sector. He said it would be
a source of revenue for both the
city and the county just as the
original invitation to negotiate
was designed.
"They haven't given it a chance
to work,"Vaccaro said.
If the property is indeed put
up for sale, Vaccaro said he and
Cypress Lending, which has a
licensing agreement to run the
Springs until June 30, 2013,
would certainly be interested in
purchasing the property.
"If the price is right, you betcha
we're going to bid,"Vaccaro said.
"It all comes down to a competi-

will be furious," she
said. "If it were adver-
tised and they were
able to speak, then it's
OK if they don't like
the outcome, At least

tive bid process."
County Commission Chair Chris-
tine Robinson said the vote could
be a detriment to the spa.
"Today's actions by the city
commission could very well
endanger the protection of the
Springs and result in the closure
of Warm Mineral Springs to the
public," Robinson said."It is a very
dark day for North Port city and
Sarasota County residents."
County Commissioner Joe
Barbetta said the decision isn't a
win-win for the community.
"I think it's an unfortunate
decision and it's probably not a
great day for the citizens of North
Port," Barbetta said."It's a great
community asset and it's now
somewhat in jeopardy. It's in a
precarious position now on how
things will proceed."

part of the process. It

administrators and get
a more current walk-
through of the facilities.
Budget cuts forced
the reduction of school
resource officers
throughout the county in
2007-08, from 45 posi-
tions to 28, said Sarasota
County spokesman Gary
Leatherman.
In response to a
media inquiry, he said he
doesn't doubt that issue
may be revisited again.
All the county high
schools have full time
SROs. Venice pays for
a full-time VPD officer,
while the county foots the
bill for a second. North
Port pays 50 percent of
the cost for two at its high
school.
Venice Elementary lost
its part-time SRO in the
2008 budget cycle.
Venice Elementary
Principal Theresa Baus
said school staff have


been extra watchful
since the Newtown
event. She reminded
parents that Newtown
was an extraordinary
and rare event.
"We have Venice po-
lice here in the morning.
Also, in unmarked cars,"
Baus said. "Yesterday,
VPD walked through the
whole school. We asked
for suggestions."
Like Sandy Hook
Elementary, Venice El
has all its outside doors
locked throughout
classes, with only one
unlocked front door
leading to the adminis-
tration desk.
Unlike Sandy Hook,
Venice Elementary
school is surrounded
by chain-link fence as a
security precaution.
While the SRO is gone
from Venice Elementary,
there is an additional
police presence in the
form of a local Cops In
the Classroom program,
Baus said.
Officer Sean Hammett
visits area schools on a


rotating basis, reading
to children and giv-
ing them tips on how
to be safe, and keep
each other safe. Anti-
bullying is one of the
key issues addressed.
Hammett even interacts
with students on the
playground just to get
acquainted.
"It's about building
trust and relationships,"
Hammett said.
Instead of children
being fearful of police,
it's his job to win them
over and become their
ally.
"Let them know the
police are their friend.
That we're there to help,"
Hammett said. "Someone
they can come to, talk
to."
Hammett said the
program, begun at the
end of last school year, is
already being accepted.
"Before the program,
when I came there
people would ask 'What
happened?' or 'Can I
help you?' Now they
just say, 'Hi'," Hammett


said. "They see me so
often it's not" a big deal.
"They're used to me."
A new fifth-grade pro-
gram is under construc-
tion. It will be unveiled
at Epiphany School in
January, followed by
others thereafter.
"It puts him in the
school," McNulty said.
"A chance to stop in to
let them know we have
a plan God forbid we
need it."

Bye-bye Bressler's, hello Venice Avenue Creamery


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"We are the Venice
Avenue Creamery," said
Randy Etzkorn, owner of
the former Bressler's Ice
Cream & Yogurt Shop,
249 W. Venice Ave.
It opened in 1967 and
was one of only three
Bressler's still operating.
Recently, Etzkorn was in-
formed he had to change
the name because the
national franchise had
been acquired by a new
owner and the Bressler's
name had been dropped.
"We hate to lose the
name we have been
known for so long,
particularly during our
21st year of ownership,"
he said. "We will rein-
troduce ourselves with
Venice Avenue Creamery,
as it references where we
are in downtown.
"The change simply
involves new signage as
we have been making all


the ice cream and yogurt
products and waffle
cones in the store for the
past five years.
When Venice was a very
small town in the late '60s
and early '70s the shop
was the place high school
kids went to hang out.
Etzkorn and manager and
colleague Mike Phillips
have kept the shop's '60s
appearance. Etzkorn
is continually upgrad-
ing equipment but the
traditional layout and
furniture have remained
virtually unchanged.
Products have been
consistent, outside of
rotating flavors and
introducing and testing
different sundaes. All of
the yogurts are low fat
and they sell fat-free ice
cream and sorbets, rotat-
ing the flavors.
Fifteen years ago they
added homemade cara-
mel corn, then flavored
cheese and other special
corns.


"We are far and away
an ice cream shop; that is
our identity and what we
want, not all things to all
people," Etzkorn said.
The most popular ice
cream sold is vanilla,
because it is used in hot
fudge sundaes and milk
shakes. However, when
customers come in and
want something in an ice
cream cone, butter pecan
is the No. 1 seller.
"Although lots of our
customers have their
traditional flavors, and
though they enjoy seeing
the new flavors like
pomegranate, most still
want the butter pecan,"
said Etzkorn.
Forty flavors are
displayed daily; during
the year they probably
offer eighty choices
total. Certain flavors are
popular during certain
times for spring break,
for example, they always
have Superman, bubble-
gum and cookie dough.


During season they make
sure to have butter pecan
and rum raisin for the
winter residents. In the
past they made ice cream
cakes but sales didn't
justify the amount of
work involved, so they no
longer provide them.
Eztkorn said business
picks up the week before
Christmas and they
are very busy the week
following the holiday.
Season starts full strength
in mid-January and
continues until the week
after Easter. Open daily
from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.,
afternoons and evenings
are very busy, and as the
days get longer the after-
sunset crowd comes in.
During season he employs
up to 12 people.
When Etzkorn ac-
quired the store in 1992,
the summers were dead
quiet; now, he said, they
are very strong with a lot
of visiting Floridians.
A native of Tiffin, Ohio,

Holding handmade waffle cone ice creams are Mike Phillips,
manager, left, and Randy Etzkorn, owner, standing in front of
the former Bressler's Ice Cream & Yogurt Shop, soon to become
the Venice Avenue Creamery, 249 W. Venice Ave.


Etzkorn worked with his
father for 15 years in the
insurance and real estate
business. Burned out
and ready for a change,
he and his wife decided
to move to Venice, where
they found Bressler's
and bought it within a
month.
Bressler's began as


Paradise Ice Cream in
1929, according to a 1986
Chicago Tribune report.
In 1962, the name was
changed to Bressler's
33 Flavors, and by 1986
there were 350 stores in
36 states making a total
of 260 flavors to meet de-
mand across the country.

year.

Digital dialing
During 2013, the
majority of telephone
land-line users will
transition to the new
digital-dialing program.
This service is publicized
to be an improvement,
but the downside is that
for every call made the
caller has to dial the
area code, a significant
change for those used to
dialing local numbers.
The reason for the
change is the shortage
of numbers available
to new and expanding
telephone subscribers.

Economists see good signs for 2013


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
"Florida's housing
market is back, with
great possibilities for the
future, but those pos-
sibilities are only begin-
ning to be realized," said
Dr. John Tuccillo, chief
economist for Florida
Realtors, the voice for
real estate in Florida.
Florida's residential
real estate market will
continue its upward
trend into 2013, though
the pace of recovery may
be slower than the U.S.
as a whole, according to
leading U.S. economists
speaking at Florida


Realtors 2013 Real Estate
and Economic Forecast
Conference in Orlando.
Fannie Mae Chief
Economist Doug Duncan
said, "We believe the
housing market is on
firm footing. Most of the
improvement we've seen
has come from the supply
side of housing. Distressed
properties are coming
down from about 5 million
to more like 3 million."
Mortgage rates should
remain low and not
change much in 2013,
he added, while banks
likely will continue to
maintain high lending
standards and a tight


credit environment.
"The trend has been
established for the hous-
ing recovery, but robust
growth awaits more jobs
and a stronger economy,"
Duncan said. "Three
years into the recovery,
the current economic
expansion is the weakest
since World War II. Just
over half of the jobs lost
in the Great Recession
have been recovered."
The real estate market
"bottomed out in late
2008," Tuccillo said, ac-
cording to Florida Realtors'
market data and other
market research sources.
"Since the beginning of


2009, we've clearly seen a
regrouping and a recovery
under way."
Median sales prices
are consistently ris-
ing for both existing
single-family homes and
condo-townhome units
across Florida. However,
he noted the state's active
distressed property, fore-
closures and short-sales
market is putting pres-
sure on prices, resulting
in smaller gains and a
slower rate than what is
being seen in California
and the U.S. as a whole.
Other signs of Florida's
steadily improving resi-
dential market, according


to Tuccillo, are that the
supply of single-family
homes is below 6 months;
the latest data for October
2012 show 44 percent of
closed sales were paid in
cash, signifying strong
demand from investors;
foreign buyers make up
19 percent of closed sales
in Florida; and traditional
nondistressed sales now
make up more than
50 percent of Florida's
closed sales. Closed sales
include fewer real estate-
owned and more short
sales, and shadow inven-
tory has been declining
since 2009.
Where will Florida be in


2013? Assuming that the
national fiscal problems
are not resolved but are
"postponed," Tuccillo said
he expects employment
in the state to grow by
10 percent in 2013; resi-
dential sales to increase
by 10 percent; prices to
rise by 5 percent; com-
mercial activity to revive;
and inventory to grow as
the market improves.
"I think the improve-
ment in the market and
rising prices will bring
more potential sellers
back into the market,"
he said. "Signs point to a
better year in 2013."

County approves fine money project list


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
Commission approved a
project list Monday that
will help determine how
the county will spend
its share of billions of
dollars generated from
fines levied on BP as a
result of the 2010 Gulf
oil spill.
Sarasota County
Coastal Resources man-
ager Laird Wreford said
the county estimates
the federal government
will be disbursing fines
of about $300 million
per year for 15 years, to
be split among the five
coastal states affected
by the spill.
County staff has been
at work preparing a list
of projects that would
be paid with funds
from RESTORE the
federal Resources and


Ecosystem Stainability,
Tourist Opportunities
and Revived Economies
Act which directs a
share of the fines result-
ing from the Deepwater
Horizon disaster to the
affected areas.
Watershed and envi-
ronmental restoration
projects, ranked by en-
vironmental and com-
munity benefit, headed
the list of 28 items
totaling $144.7 million
presented to commis-
sioners. The top item
on the list was 50 acres
of bay frontage land ac-
quisition for the Lemon
BayWatershed in South
Venice, a purchase that
would cost around
$2 million.
The Dona Bay envi-
ronmental restoration
was next, with an
estimated price tag
of $11.25 million. The
highest-priced item on


the list was the Phillipi
Creek septic system
replacement program
in North County, at
$60 million. That
project is being paid for
in part by residents who
have to convert to the
system.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson was leery
of the total price tag
on the list, question-
ing how much money
would actually be
available in the federal
pot. Wreford said that
amount will not be
known for some time.
"That makes this
more challenging and
daunting," Wreford
said. "It will be depen-
dent upon what the
final settlement is. We're
trying to zero in on
projects that will give
you a better bang for
your buck. These will
have a better benefit


to the community or
to the ecosystem for
the least amount of
dollars."
Commissioners
approved the list 4-1,
with Chair Christine
Robinson dissent-
ing. The project list
is now headed to the
Joint Estuary Program
Group, composed of the
Sarasota Bay Estuary
Program, the Charlotte
Harbor National
Estuary Program and
the Tampa Bay Estuary
Program for submis-
sion to the Federal
Gulf Coast Ecosystem
Restoration Council for
potential funding under
RESTORE.
"We're trying to pool
our projects together
to make them regional
and to make them more
attractive for the federal
government to fund,"
Robinson said.


County officials have
said more than $26 bil-
lion in funds from the
BP spill settlement
is coming to Florida.
The money will be
divided into four differ-
ent "pots" a federal
fund, 30 percent of the
money; a state fund,
also 30 percent, and
overseen by the Gulf
Consortium; a local
fund of 35 percent,
overseen by the state;
and the remaining
5 percent, which will go
to the state for research
and monitoring. All of
the projects approved
Monday would be paid
for from money from
the federal fund. The
county joined the Gulf
Consortium, which
oversees the state fund,
in November.
Sarasota, Charlotte
and Manatee coun-
ties are among the


23 Florida counties
affected by the BP oil
spill. Eight counties in
the Florida Panhandle
had oil wash up on
their beaches; Sarasota
County was one of 15
counties along the Gulf
that did not have any
oil but was affected
economically, taking a
tourism hit.

County OKs EOC pre-construction contract


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Pre-construction plans
are under way for the esti-
mated $12.1 million county
Emergency Operations
Center in Sarasota.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners recently approved
a $103,000 contract with
Ajax/Tandem Construction
for the first phase of pre-
construction management
services for the future EOC,
which will be located at 6062
Porter Way. Officials say pre-
construction phase services
include design coordination
and constructability reviews,
value engineering, prepara-
tion of project estimates,
schedule refinement,
bidding phase services and
preparation of a guaranteed-
maximum-price agreement,
or GMFP for all construction
phase services.
Ajax Construction, which
has partnered with Sarasota-
based Tandem Construction
for this project, has been in
the news of late after part of
a five-story parking garage it
was building at Miami-Dade
Community College in
Miami collapsed in October,
killing four construction
workers. The family of
one of the construction
workers filed suit against


the contractors earlier this
month.
Bob Stuckey, the county's
manager of Public Safety
and Communications, said
the investigation may take
months if not years to
complete.
Stuckey said county re-
search indicated that Ajax
has been very compliant
and performance-driven
in dealing with the con-
struction of EOCs and 911
centers around the state.
He said the team members
who will be working on the
Sarasota EOC are not the
same team members who
may have been involved
with the collapse.
"In our research of
projects byAjax, we've
been getting nothing but
glowing reports back as far
as their professionalism and
performance," Stuckey said.
Sarasota Emergency
Management officials
recently toured the EOC/911
center that is nearing
completion inVolusia
County near Daytona
Beach. Ajax is the construc-
tion manager of that facility,
and Stuckey said Sarasota
County officials were
pleased with what they saw,
walking away with a sense
of confidence that they'd


be getting experienced
professionals.
Ajax also built the Baker
County Public Safety
Complex in 2009 and no
major problems have been
reported with the facility.
Stuckey said Ajax and
Tandem each has more
than 40 years of experience
in these types of construc-
tion projects.
"From our perspective,
we're very comfortable
with where we are at this
point and we look forward
to getting them on board,"
Stuckey said.
Commission Chair
Christine Robinson was
happy to have Tandem in-
volved in the Sarasota EOC
project, saying "they have
an excellent reputation."
"Tandem gives me a
high level of confidence in


this one," Robinson said.
Stuckey said that after
Ajax/Tandem -which beat
out 11 bids for the contract,
including seven with local
offices delivers their GMP
agreement to the county late
next summer, Emergency
Management officials will
come back to the commis-
sion and let them decide if
they want to move forward
with construction services.
The project is part of
the $1.1 billion FY2013-17
capital improvement plan
discussed by the commis-
sion in June and adopted
in September.
Officials expected the
design will be completed
late next year and the
project should be com-
pleted sometime in 2014, if
construction is approved.

County moves forward on Siesta Beach project


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County's top
tourist attraction is on
its way to getting an
extensive facelift after
the Sarasota County
Commission last week
authorized the comple-
tion of the design of
the $21.5 million Siesta
Beach Improvement
Project.
The decision by the
commission means
the county will be able
to get firmer numbers
from contractors on
what it actually will
cost to do the project,
which will add more
than 130 parking
spaces along with
upgrading restrooms,
picnic areas and other
areas.
County staff has been
working with Kimley-
Horn and Associates
Inc. and Sweet/
Sparkman Architects
to come up with cost
estimates. The parties
now can move forward
on the design phase,
which is currently
60 percent complete.
Commissioners are
hopeful the project will
come in under budget.
Current estimates
are $16.7 million for
construction, plus
associated costs for
design, engineering
inspection and capital
management services
oversight. The project
hit a snag last summer,
when cost estimates
ballooned to more than
$26 million.
"We don't know the
construction costs,"
Commissioner Joe
Barbetta said. "We have
a budget not to exceed
$21.5 million. I hope it
comes in at $14 million
or $15 million. We can't
sit here and determine
a cost we know what


the estimates are from
staff, we know what
our budget is and we're
hoping that a construc-
tion manager at-risk
is part of this overall
project. We hope this
comes in below budget
and I'm just trying to
get this thing moving."
Commissioners also
voted 4-1 to do the
entire project at one
time instead of over
a 12-year period that
would have used surtax
funds. That means,
however, the county
will need to borrow
money beyond the
$7 million it already
has set aside for the
project, which officials
estimate will take ap-
proximately 27 months
to complete. Several
commissioners voiced
concern over the tim-
ing and possible dis-
ruptions it would cause
at the beach where
parking is already at a
premium.
"I'd be a little
shocked if it took that
long," said Barbetta,
who thought it
would take closer to
18 months for the
whole project.
Commissioner
Charles Hines agreed
with Barbetta, saying
the project is going to
disrupt the community
and "it makes a whole
lot of sense to do this
at once."
"I'd sure hate to tell
the community that
this is a six-, eight- or
10-year project and
every time you think
it's done, there's some-
thing else going on,"
Hines said.
Chair Christine
Robinson was the
dissenting vote, say-
ing borrowing money
would take away from

the county including
South River Road.
"We have dire needs
for our roads in our
community," she said.
"We've drastically
reduced our repaving
schedule. This is a
quality-of-life issue for
the entire county. We're
reducing it by $14 mil-
lion (the highest
amount of money that
would be borrowed for
the project) and we're
seeing paving costs go


up. We're getting more
and more complaints
every day regarding our
road schedule. This is
a very worthy project
and it's not a reflection
of the project itself
- it's a reflection of a
choice for me between
a need of getting our
roads back up to snuff
or want of getting this
done quicker."
Barbetta countered
by saying the com-
mission could make


adjustments to future
budgets, adding money
to the road fund or
even bonding the roads
in a move similar to
the road bond recently
approved by North Port
voters.
"This isn't a forced
choice and this isn't
'we're going to do this
project and can't do
the roads' I think
that's an unfair state-
ment to let the public
think that's going to


happen," he said. "I
don't want the public
to think that they
approved Siesta Beach
but they don't care
about the roads ... that
couldn't be further
from the truth."
County finance chief
Steve Botelho said any
bonding, or long-term
financing, for the
Siesta Beach project
would not happen until
late next summer.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


Buy American so they'll make American


ill "Made in the USA" ever be-
come commonplace again?
It's possible.
Recent articles in The Atlantic
magazine detail the trend toward
"in-sourcing." The magazine's cover
stories "Comeback: Why the Future
of Industry is in America" dig into
the economic factors reversing the
decades-long rush to foreign out-
sourcing and driving a new wave of
manufacturing on our shores.
One article cites General Electric's ef-
forts to revive an old manufacturing plant
in Louisville to build high-end washers
and dryers. Water heaters are also being
made there. The production is spurring
suppliers' manufacturing nearby.
The macro reasons? In a nutshell:


favorable energy prices here; the
ability to move goods to market
quickly; closer relationships between
engineers and plant workers; rising
Chinese wages and lower American
union pay scales; and higher skills and
productivity in the U.S. Overall, the
trend lines are hopeful.
The point is that American manu-
facturers can succeed and flourish
with better products at good prices.
Take the recent piece on "ABC World
News with Diane Sawyer" that fea-
tured a local manufacturing success
story: Tervis Tumbler in Venice. A 2011
ABC story highlighting Tervis was
credited with creating a surge in or-
ders of the company's insulated bever-
age tumblers and bottles. Increased


sales spurred more stores, more
production and more employees.
"We've doubled the number of stores
we had in just one year," Tervis market-
ing vice president Kathy Greif told ABC.
"We had eight. Now we have 17."
That's a very good sign as the local
economy digs out from the Great
Recession. Tervis, whose manufactur-
ing plant is situated just off Interstate
75 and Laurel Road, built an addition
last year. The expansion was encour-
aged in part by an ad valorem tax
exemption granted by Sarasota County.
The local company also was granted
a $10 million Recovery Zone Facility
Bond. And in 2010, the company
received economic incentive grants of
$450,000 from Sarasota County. The


grant was contingent on the creation of
214 jobs at an average wage of $39,450.
In fact, Tervis has created 413 jobs.
Tervis has more than 700 employees
now, Greif said. Another 100 workers
were hired for the busy Christmas
season. Sales are up 35 percent.
The ABC news segment was part
of the program's "Made in America"
campaign, which encouraged people
to spend 10 percent of their holiday
shopping budget on American-made
goods. On average, we spend nearly
$700 buying gifts during the season.
Economists said spending only $64 on
Made-in-America gifts would create
another 200,000 jobs.
The more, the better. The closer to
home, the better too.


We'll work it out


I guess we should con-
sider ourselves lucky this
December, as the issue that
seemed to get the most
attention was the place-
ment of chairs at the annual
Christmas parade. I am sure
that soon there will be boat
parade regulation thrust
upon us as well.
Is it really necessary to
regulate citizens staking out a
location to watch our parades?
The answer to that question
varies depending on the per-
son you have the conversation
with. Elected officials have
a bunch of issues to worry
themselves over, protect-
ing the citizens, of course,
being the primary burden.
Additionally, the city image
must be maintained, and we
all know that grass is made
for looking at, not for citizens
putting lawn chairs out.
Citizens who have been
placing chairs in their favorite
spot for years would say it
has not been a problem in the
past and we should not have
a problem now. Newcomers
would say, wow, it's a great
parade, but getting a good
seat can be tough. Goodness,
what's the answer?
Let's say for argument's
sake that our city had por-
table bleachers for events
such as this. The hypotheti-
cal bleachers could seat 100
persons per unit, with the city
reserving seats for parade-
goers at $5 per seat. Let's
continue this thought and say
we needed 100 portable units,
seating 10,000 comfortably
and generating $50,000 in
revenue that could be used
as a special-events revenue
stream.


The portable bleacher
system could be used at
all events and the revenue
generated could easily pay
for expenses. Sounds easy
enough, manageable and
economically fantastic to me.
What think you?
But wait just a second -
those money generating
bleachers would have to be
set up in advance, double-
checked for safety and you
got it placed on the grass.
A hundred of those bleachers
would take roughly 14 days
to put up and take down, and
we have to move them closer
to the water for the boat
parade, so a rough guess is
we would use those bleachers
for a total of 42 days per year
for three events, generating
$150,000 in revenue annually.
Of course, there would be a
debate on ticket prices each
year, but what can you do?
Let me ask you this: Would
you rather see citizens
continue the tradition -
scope out and mark a spot for
these events and allow them
to come out and enjoy the
parade like they have done
for many years or would
you rather see the scenario I
described?
At some point regulating
gets out of hand and takes the
"special" out of these special
events. While you can't please
all of the people all of the
time, in this case regulating
is not the answer. People are
going to go about marking
their spot roughly the same
way they do every year.
Adding regulation changes
behavior and could lead to
less holiday cheer as opening
day of chair season approach-
es. Sometimes old-fashioned
faith in our population simply
does the trick.
As I said earlier, we should
consider ourselves lucky
this is the biggest issue
of December for our fair
city. There is one place in
Connecticut that would
certainly agree.

Home front. If you want a
nativity scene or any religious
display, put it in your living
room, not on public property.
The goals. I am responding
to the caller who was dismayed
that Unitarian Universalists
were demonstrating outside
Publix in Venice. We were
peaceful and delivered a letter
to the manager to ask for
Publix to sign the Fair Food
agreement. This is sponsored
by the Coalition of Immokalee
Workers, who pick 90 percent
of the tomatoes in Florida
under horrific, but improving,
conditions. The agreement has
been signed by 11 other food
service corporations. Publix
is the only supermarket with
its headquarters in Florida
and could have a special
role to play in the goal of
providing Florida farmwork-
ers with a living wage for a
day's honest work, access to
shade and water in the fields
and a grievance process for
reporting sexual harassment,
among other things all for
a penny more per pound for
Florida tomatoes that Publix
buys. This would be good
public relations for Publix.
Unitarians are guided by seven
principles, which include the
inherent worth of dignity of
every person, just equity and
compassion in human rela-
tions. Those were our goals in
the demonstration.
Suspect. My guess is some-
one who writes to a newspaper
with a negative comment
about our president and calls
him Barack (Hussein) Obama
is someone who still suspects
he's a Muslim, not that I
have any prejudices against
Muslims.
Positively. About nativity
scenes placed on city property:
absolutely, positively, yes!
Rude. This is regarding
"Reservation for one." The
person who put a chair out
so early for the 2013 Holiday
Parade is rude, disrespectful
and childish.
Useful info. Thanks for
telling us which restaurants
welcome dogs. I will be sure
and stay away.


Let 'em


Have It
Free market. I live in South
County. I deeply resent the
actions of city politicians at-
tempting to make my medical
choices. Sarasota Memorial
Hospital should build and
be subject to the free market
principles that so terrify the
city of Venice elite.
Thank VABI. I'm calling to
thank whoever is in charge of
making those beautiful lights
in West Blalock Park. Venice is
so lucky to have people who
will decorate the park like that.
It's gorgeous.
Editor's note: Venice Area
Beautification Inc. gets the
credit for sponsoring the lights
in the park, among other area
projects.
Remarkable. I was dis-
appointed in Mr. Charles
Dixon's letter to the editor.
If he came here in the late
1990s, the population in
Florida was 4 million people;
today it is 22 million. Venice
has done a remarkable job
in controlling land use and
growth. What other city has
done as well? None. We will
continue to grow. Get used to
it, Mr. Dixon.
Obstructed. I really need
some major help, please. I've
gone to the city of Venice. I've
talked to Sarasota County
code enforcement. I live on
Gulf Coast Boulevard, across


from Mi Pueblo. There's a car
dealership there. The cars are
parked so far out in front near
the road that you can't see
the traffic coming from the
south going north to pull out.
It's going to take somebody
to get killed before we get this
resolved. Could you please,
please help me?
Only right. In regard to
the restaurant owner using
only Fox News to be played
in the restaurant: I would like
to know why the Republican
right wing can't have one
cable news channel. All the
others are left wing. The main-
stream media is left wing,
every cotton-pickin' one, and
we have only Fox News. And
that isn't even all right wing.
It's middle of the road. I'm
getting sick and tired of you
left-wing people complaining.
Why don't you just remember
the election is over and you
won? So shut up.
Go elsewhere. I'm calling
about the gentleman who
wrote about the restaurant
having Fox News playing.
Well, he must be either a
liberal or ignorant. He's got
to realize that Fox News is
the only place we can turn
to that gives us the full truth
about our government. CNN
and the other channels are
so liberal and in the govern-
ment's pocket. He shouldn't
visit them if he doesn't like
it. He should get up and go
someplace else.

If we can't talk now, when


?


On the day of the hor-
rendous murderous ram-
page in the Connecticut
school of Sandy Hook, I
received this email call-
ing for memorial vigil in
our community:
"Today we are all wit-
ness to an unspeakable
tragedy. Five years ago,
my daughter Emily was
in French class at Virginia
Tech when a gunman
opened fire, killing her


teacher and 11 of her
friends and classmates.
Emily was shot twice in
the back of the head, but
survived. We can't let this
continue."
We will fly our
American flags at half-
staff; we will watch the
unfolding events on
television and grieve for
the innocent young lives
taken and for their par-
ents. Our hearts will go
out as well to the survi-
vors and first responders
who will never be able
to erase the memories of
what they saw and heard
and experienced that day.
The war of people
against people seems to
have entrenched itself
in the American psyche
- at least in the minds


of those with problems
that can only be resolved
by pulling the trigger of
a gun. How else can you
make sense of the sense-
less? 34 people killed by
gun violence every day.
America, where there
are 88 guns for every 100
Americans, leading the
world in mass killings.
One of the most out-
spoken in this regard has
been New York Mayor
Michael Bloomberg.
"We heard after
Columbine that it was
too soon to talk about
gun laws. We heard it
after Virginia Tech. After
Tucson and Aurora
and Oak Creek," he
said. "This is a national
tragedy and it demands a
national response."


Former astronaut Mark
Kelly, whose wife, former
U.S. Rep. Gabrielle
Giffords, was gravely
wounded in a mass
shooting in Tucson, Ariz.,
last year, wrote this on
Facebook:
"As we mourn, we
must sound a call for
our leaders to stand up
and do what is right. Not
politically, but morally
right. This time our
response must consist
of more than regret,
sorrow and condolence.
The children of Sandy
Hook Elementary School
and all victims of gun
violence deserve leaders
who have the courage to
participate in a meaning-
ful discussion about our
gun laws and how


they can be reformed
and better enforced to
prevent gun violence and
death in America. This
can no longer wait."
This past year seemed
to have one act of
violence after another,
perpetrated mostly by
people with automatic
weapons. Deranged? Of
course. All the more rea-
son to make sure every
means possible is taken
to keep guns out of their
hands. All the more to
raise our voices as never
before to protect the
rights of every American,
every man, woman
and child who deserves
to live in peace rather
than those who are
protected by an amend-
ment that was written


for a different time and a
different place.
In the days following
the tragedy we have
heard about all the is-
sues, all the opinions, all
the speculation, but what
we will never hear again
are the voices of those 20
innocent young children
and the school adminis-
trators and teachers who
tried to save them. There
is no one left to speak for
them but you and me.
If not now, when?

ident of Venice Interfaith

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Football mom says
thanks

Editor:
I would like to thank all
the Venice High School
football coaches for a
amazing six years.
Coach Peacock, you
and your staff have been
a part of our family and
will forever be in our
hearts. Our youngest
son will graduate this
year and our oldest will
be in his second year
of college (and playing
college ball), thanks to
all the positive influences
they received at home
and on the field. Football
has been good to our
family and we will always
be Indians through and
through.
I have enjoyed being
part of your team as
parent liaison and will
hold all those memories
close to my heart. You
and all the coaches have
instilled leadership, hard
work, teamwork and


a no-quit attitude that
will carry both Dino and
Dom [Fanti] through
their lives.
Pete Dombrosi and
Jack Turgeon are also
part of the amazing team
that has helped guide
my sons to success;
thank you so very much.
Jess Pluchino, you are a
amazing woman and a
good friend, and I can't
thank you enough for
your tireless contribu-
tions to the football team
and being there for both
Dino and Dom.
I also can't forget Chris
- you are an amazing
team trainer and a really
cool guy. Jonn Mussone,
thank you for all the time
you put into our team,
doing stats, announcing,
fundraising and feeding
them. Thank you to all
the coaches' wives, who
are all amazing, strong
women who put up with
football season.
Coach Shannon,
thanks for being there
for Dino when he


needed you, and Coach
Colangelo, thank you for
all the one-on-one with
Dom.
Thank you to all the
parents who rallied to my
calls for help; our pro-
gram has been successful
because of parents like
you. One last thank you
goes to all the football
fans for coming and
supporting our team.
You are what makes our
community what it is.

Where is the
decency?

Editor:
38 Republicans have
shamed America in the
eyes of the world [by
voting against a UN
treaty on the disabled].
They have shamed our
president. They have
shamed the American
people, those disabled


and those not.
89-year-old [former
senator] Bob Dole, in
a wheelchair, from the
hospital, came to the
senate floor to support it.
It was a shameful and
cruel display of party
politics over decency
and compassion. Maybe
it's time to dump the tea
(party) back into Boston
Harbor and start acting
like Americans.

Alicia Simmons
Venice

It's not your property

Editor:
As fairly new residents
to Venice, my husband
and I were at first
amused and then
dismayed at the cordons
placed by individuals
on public land for the
Christmas and boat
parades.
Many of us were born
during World War II or
before. We did not grow


up with the mindset of
"taking" and once we
have, of "keeping" at all
costs.
Where and how did we
come to this point? It is
not a behavior I want my
grandchildren to grow up
with.

Marilyn Medler
Venice

First, get educated

Editor:
A writer was critical of
the participation of the
Venice Unitarians in a
demonstration outside
Publix on East Venice
Avenue. The demon-
stration was regarding
Publix's refusal to pay
a penny more for the
tomatoes picked by
the Immokalee farm
workers.
Here is a suggestion for
the writer. Look on the
internet for information
about the Coalition of
Immokalee Workers. It


has been more than 30
years since tomato pick-
ers have received a raise,
while working and living
in substandard condi-
tions. The good, caring
people participating
in the demonstrations
represent a multitude
of faiths, not just
Unitarians.
At least a dozen of the
largest food corpora-
tions have joined in
supporting the CIW be-
cause they have come to
believe that it is the right
thing to do. If the writer
continues to disagree,
that is their right and we
respect that.

HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALL



Indians fall to Cardinal Mooney, beat Manta Rays


STAFF REPORT


The VHS boys basketball
team went toe-to-toe with
the high-powered Cardinal
Mooney Cougars Tuesday
night, but Venice wound
up on the wrong end of the
78-73 final score.
Cougars sophomore
Antonio Blakeney, one
of the area's top players,
scored all 22 of his points
over the final three quar-
ters, despite Venice tailor-
ing its defense around the
6-foot-3 standout.
"We shut him down in
the first quarter," saidVenice
head coach James Slaton.
"He's a great player, though.
We played a good game, but
they played a little better."
Chris Hann led the
Indians with 21 points.
Jordan Fusco added a
season-high 16.
Slaton was encouraged
by his team's performance
after a pair of ugly losses
to Sarasota and Port
Charlotte last week
"I was pleased with our
play," he said. "There are
definitely a lot of positives
we can take from this."

Indians' defense
strong in win over
Lemon Bay
Lemon Bay High School
began to show fatigue
in the second quarter of


Saturday's 58-50 loss to
Venice. The game marked
the end of what coach Sean
Huber called a very long
week for the Manta Rays.
Friday night, they played
to a hard-fought win at
Cypress Lake. Saturday
morning, the team attend-
ed the funeral of Lemon
Bay football player Jerone
Campbell, who died Dec. 7.
"They get home at 11
at night, turn around and
bury a teammate at 11, then
come to the game here at
5:30. It's a lot in one day,"
Huber said. "My kids gave as
good an effort as they could
under the circumstances."
Lemon Bay (5-8) took
an 18-15 lead in the first
quarter, butVince Kisiday
and Will Howell both got
in early foul trouble and
had to sit out the second
quarter. At halftime,
Venice led 33-28.
Huber rearranged his
second-half lineup to ac-
count for the foul trouble,
expectingVenice to come
out of the locker room
with the same five start-
ers. ButVenice, too, had
made adjustments. Brent
Store scored five points
almost immediately, and
Andrew Fusco followed
with two 3-point shots to
put the Indians up 44-30.
"The game was the first
three minutes of the third
quarter," Huber said.
"They had a mismatch,


he knocks down two 3s,
we lose by seven."
Lemon Bay drew within
six on a 3-pointer by Matt
Mages and a layup by
Cedric Jackson to make the
score 52-46, but couldn't
get any closer. The Manta
Rays had to foul to stop
the clock in the fourth,
and Venice responded by
making 9 of 12 free throws
in the quarter. Chris Hann,
who led all players with
17 points, made five free
throws in the fourth.
"We took care of the
ball and made free
throws," Venice coach
James Slaton said. "If
you do that in the fourth
quarter, you put yourself
in good position to win."
Lemon Bay made
several key shots in the
fourth as the team at-
tempted a comeback after
missing most of its jump
shots in the second and
third quarters. Huber said
missed jump shots are the
first sign of a tired team.
"It's been a long week,"
he said. "To come back
with this effort shows a
lot of character."

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS BASKETBALL



Third-quarter run propels Indians win


By LAURA MYERS
SPORTS WRITER

Lemon Bay High
School barely hung on
with Venice in the first
half Saturday afternoon
and fell behind by
double digits in the third
quarter.
Then the Manta Rays
put up a fight.
Sarah Lutz hit a free
throw and then a long
3-pointer, her first of
the game, to start an
11-0 run in the fourth
quarter.
The Lemon Bay cheer-
leaders, who had arrived
early to get ready for the
later boys' game, hast-
ily took their seats and
grabbed their pompoms
as the Manta girls pulled
within one.
Venice was rattled at
first, but responded by
slowing the game down
with a minute to play,


stalling Lemon Bay's
momentum and forcing
the Mantas to foul. The
Indians stayed ahead
and won 54-50.
"What a great fourth
quarter," Lemon Bay
coach Mike Young said.
"They did a great job
of giving themselves a
chance to win."
Venice forward Taira
Ward committed her fifth
foul in the middle of the
Lemon Bay rally, giving
the Mantas an edge on
the boards for the last
six minutes. Before she
left, Ward had an uncon-
ventional double-double
with 12 rebounds and
10 steals.
"Taira was definitely
my MVP tonight," Venice
coach Jim Davis said.
The score was 14-12
after the first quarter
despite Lemon Bay
making two field goals;
they were 8 of 11 from


the free throw line in
the first quarter. Venice
committed nine fouls
in the period, but the
Mantas didn't take
advantage in the second
quarter, making one foul
shot out of five.
The Indians ended
the third quarter up
43-32 with help from
Maggie Flynn, who
scored nine of her
20 points in the third.
Venice led 49-34 when
Lemon Bay's rally began.
Karlee Ream broke the
Manta run with a jumper,
but Venice continued to
miss shots. Kacyn Shirley
hit a layup to make the
score 51-50, Lemon Bay's
last points.
"I knew it'd be a


dogfight," Young said.
"We've just got to learn
to play through the
physicality and the
emotion."
Kayla Reid led Lemon
Bay with 14 points and
added nine rebounds;
Hayley Smith finished
with 12 points and 13
rebounds. Six of her
points and seven of her
rebounds came in the
fourth quarter.

HIGH SCHOOL BOYS SOCCER



Injury mars Bobcats' victory


By LAURA MYERS
SPORTS WRITER
North Port High School
junior Robbie Rothman
was airlifted from Powell-
Davis Stadium Monday
night after sustaining a
head injury late in the
first half of North Port's
game against Venice.
Rothman briefly lost
consciousness after
colliding with a Venice
player but was con-
scious and responsive
as coaches waited with
him for paramedics,
North Port coach Gerard
Gregoire said.
However, he felt
tingling from his waist
down, and the protocol
for that injury is to send
the patient to a hospital
larger than nearby Venice
Regional Medical Center,
Venice fire Lt. Steve


Worobel said.
Paramedics speculated
that the helicopter would
take Rothman to All
Children's Hospital in St.
Petersburg because of his
age, but they couldn't say
for sure.
There was no update
on his condition avail-
able at press time late
Monday.
Rothman and the
Venice player collided in
the box near the North
Port goal with about
eight minutes to play in
the first half when both
jumped for a pass. Play
stopped as Rothman
stayed down; coaches
soon covered him with
jackets and blankets and
knelt by his side until an
ambulance arrived.
Goalkeeper Daniel
Estrada, standing with


goalkeeper Derek Reich,
looked away from the
paramedics working on
Rothman to tell his team
to start warming up; they
followed his instructions.
But they came back to
the sideline to clap for
their friend as Rothman
was wheeled off the field
on a gurney.
Then they huddled
by their bench and got
ready to resume play,
scattering with a shout of
"1-2-3 Robbie!"
Though time remained
in the first half, officials
opted to re-start the
game with the beginning
of the second half. It
took C.J. Reynolds about
30 seconds to score a
goal that put North Port
up 2-1. But the game
was called minutes
later when paramedics


decided Rothman would
need to be taken away by
helicopter.
Players and spectators
from both teams stayed
until the helicopter had
come and gone, nearly

an hour after the original
injury. About 50 people
huddled on the side of
the field opposite the
medical team to see
Rothman off.
Gregoire said the game


would count as a win
because it was called
in the second half with
North Port leading.
"That's not the way I
want to win a game," he
said.

Officials call pilot hog hunt a success


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

Despite two nights of
unfavorable weather,
Southwest Florida Water
Management District
officials are calling last
week's pilot hog-hunting
program at Deer Prairie
Creek Preserve and
the adjacent Schewe
tract near North Port a
success.
The hunting program
aimed at reducing
the abundant feral
hog population that's
destroying vegetation
and other wildlife in the
6,440-acre Deer Prairie
Creek Preserve and
the nearby 1,722-acre
Schewe tract. District
spokeswoman Robyn
Felix said hunters were


able to harvest 39 hogs
over the three-night
hunt that took place
Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday.
"Our staff that was out
there felt it was very suc-
cessful, everything went
very smoothly and the
hunters were very appre-
ciative of the opportuni-
ty to be out there," Felix
said. "Unfortunately, the
weather didn't cooperate
as much as we would
have liked."
North Port hunter
Jacob Harrocks took part
in all three nights of the
hunt. He said the rainy
weather on Tuesday
night essentially put a
halt to the hunt because
the hogs scattered
around the property.
Harrocks said the hunt


picked up on the cool
but clear Thursday
night.
Harrocks said he and
his assistants hit on a
few hogs Thursday night
but were only able to
harvest one and it was
less than 100 pounds. He
said the hogs were on
the run and proved to
be a big challenge. Felix
said most of the hogs
harvested were less than
150 pounds.
"We got one little pig,
but one is better than
none," Harrocks said.
"It helped out the cause
and it was a successful
hunt no matter what,
even though the weather
screwed us up the first
couple of days."
Hunters were allowed
to use knives, dogs and


guns to kill the hogs.
Hunters were allowed
to bring two "assis-
tants" with each per-
mit, bringing the total
number of hunters and
assistants tracking hogs
to 90. Hunters could
also use as many as
three dogs at any given
time. There were no
limits on the number of
hogs each hunter could
harvest.
Felix said the 30 per-
mits available for the
hunt at $75 apiece
- were sold out the day
they went on sale. She
said the permits that
were sold for this hunt
will also be good for
the next hunt in Deer
Prairie Creek Reserve
March 19-21. Harrocks
said he's looking


forward to that hunt.
"With what we've
learned on this experi-
ence, I think we'll have
a better grasp on things
and we'll have and even
more successful hog
hunt in March," he said.
The three-day hunt
was one of several pilot
projects around the
state sanctioned by
the district. Sarasota
County jointly owns
the Deer Prairie Creek
Preserve, adjacent to
North Port, with the
water district. The
nearby Schewe tract
is owned solely by the
district. The joint land
management agree-
ment between the
county and the district
regarding Deer Prairie
Creek states both


entities must provide
written approval of
hunting or trapping
of "nuisance exotic
species," the definition
given to feral hogs.
The county com-
mission approved the
controversial hunts by
a 4-1 margin, despite
hearing pleas from
a number of citizens
opposed to the hunt at
a July meeting. Some
held protest signs, and
one Sarasota woman
showed commissioners
a video of a squealing
hog being trapped by
a dog and killed by a
hunter using a knife.
Former commissioner
Jon Thaxton was the
dissenting vote.

Locals vie for LBHS principal job


By CLINTON BURTON
STAFF WRITER
Nine applicants,
including two Venice-
area residents, have
thrown their hats into
the ring to be Lemon Bay
High School's next top
administrator.
Principal Dan Jeffers,
62, announced in
November he would
be retiring in February
2013 after working for
Charlotte County schools
since 1980. School
superintendent Doug
Whittaker says he hopes
to be able to recommend
Jeffers' replacement
to the school board by
Dec. 21.
Once the candidates
are narrowed to the
most qualified, they will
go through two sets of
interviews, Whittaker
said: a board of parents,
teachers and community
leaders, and a formal
interview by a district
Target Selection Group,
of more teachers and
district employees.
"They will ask very
specific questions,"
he said. "They will be
ranking them and giving
me feedback on the
strengths and weakness-
es of the candidates."
Applicant Steven
Black of Venice is an
adjunct professor of
teacher education at
Keiser University and the
Educator Preparation
Institute of State College
of Florida. He is also
dean of the College of
Education at Argosy
University. He has been
an adjunct graduate
professor at the State
University of New York,
and was the superinten-
dent of schools for the
Fort Ann School District
in New York from 2000 to
2005.
According to his
resume, Mark D.
Saunders of Nokomis
most recently was the
principal of two el-
ementary schools in the
Juniata County School
District in Mifflintown,
Pa., from 2008 to 2011.
He was an assistant high
school principal in the
same district from 2004
to 2008.
Candidate Robert T.
Bedford is one of three
Englewood-area appli-
cants, and is no stranger
to LBHS. He's been the
assistant principal for
curriculum there since
2009, and was a voca-
tional business teacher
at the school from 1993
to 2009, according to his
r6sum6.
Tina Frederick of
Englewood taught
grades one through six at
Sackets Harbor Central
School in Sackets Harbor,
N.Y, from 1988 to 2007,
and is a certified school
district supervisor and
administrator.
Applicant Scott
Ferguson Nicklas of
Rotonda West is the dean
of student discipline
at Port Charlotte High
School, but was a teacher
and head coach for the
boys cross country and
track and field teams at
LBHS from 2004 to 2006.
In the interim, he was a
guidance counselor at
PCHS from 2006 to 2010.
Lynne Kratochvil, cur-
rently of Bluffton, S.C.,
is one of two women
seeking the position.
She's a part-time teacher
at Heritage Academy in
Hilton Head Island, S.C.,
an adjunct professor of
development and critical
reading at the Technical
College of the Low
Country in Beaufort, S.C.,
and the owner of Excel
Tutoring Center.
Kratochvil has area


ties, though. She taught
at Punta Gorda Middle
School from 1984 to 1988
and was the assistant
principal there from
1988 to 1991. From


1991 to 1993, she was
the assistant principal
at Port Charlotte High
School, and she was
assistant principal at Port
Charlotte Middle School
from 1993 to 1995. She
was assistant principal at
Peace River Elementary
School from 1998 until


2000, before stepping
into the principal's role
at Peace River until 2006.
Cameron Lazar of
Bradenton Beach was
the assistant principal of
Daughtrey Preparatory
School of Arts and
Sciences in Bradenton
from 2010 to 2011.


There was no r6sum6
included with Andrei
Ghelman's application;
however, the document
indicates he has a bach-
elor's degree from the
University of Maryland
and a master's degree in
elementary education
from Johns Hopkins


f ==-


University. Ghelman
earned a doctorate in
educational leader-
ship from Bowie State
University, according to
his application.
Robert Piowar's ap-
plication packet also did
not include a resume.
He lives in Leesburg,


Fla., and is a graduate
of Eastern Michigan
University, where he
earned a bachelor's
degree in social science;
and the University of
South Florida, where he
earned a master's degree
in educational leadership.

Santa


takes


TV turn

By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
If you were looking
to watch something on
TV Monday night and
turned on ABC's "Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition,"
you might have recognized
a familiar South County
face playing Santa in the
show's holiday special.
North Port resident
Nicholas Trolli, 51, is pres-
ident of The Amalgamated
Order and International
Fraternal Organization of
Santas, a group of 2,000
Santas from around the
world. Show producers
contacted him after he -
and 200 other Christmas
characters helped
demolish a house in Ohio
for the show in 2010. They
asked him if he could do
the show in Lincolnton,
N.C., and another in
Texas. He agreed to do
the North Carolina show,
while another Santa took
the Texas gig.
Monday night's show
involved the Friday family,
which Trolli said is well-
known and respected in
the Lincolnton commu-
nity. The family consists
of parents James and
Devonda Friday; children
Diane and Olivia; and fos-
ter children Chris, Kamaya,
Carly and twins London
and Luke known
together as the "Fab Five."
Trolli said Devonda was
the instrumental member
of the family for fostering
children because, as a
former police officer, she
saw things in the line of
duty that she could not do
to help families.
Trolli said the story line
involved the Grinch, the
famous character from the
1966 classic TV movie of
Dr. Seuss' book "How the
Grinch Stole Christmas,"
going around and messing
up progress being made
on the 4,000-square-foot
house. One of the show's
designers, named Ed,
was the only one who
could see Santa during
the building phase of the
house. Trolli said he was
wearing a blue shirt like
the rest of the workers
and performed some light
work, like moving boards
and plants or climbing
ladders. He would go
around fixing anything
messed up by the Grinch.
At the end of the
episode, show host Ty
Pennington called out to
Trolli, who was going by
his first name on the show,
to come meet with the
family. Pennington talked
about Santa being on a
sleigh, but the only thing
movable at the end of
the episode was the large
bus that appears in every
episode. Trolli declined to
say what happened next.
"It's a secret that would
ruin the show," Trolli said
with a laugh, "but I can
tell you it has a lot to do
with the bus."
The episode was filmed
last Christmas, and likely
will be the show's final one.
Trolli said ABC has talked
about reformatting and
bringing back the show,
which made its debut
in 2003 and has helped
dozens of families around
the country.
He got emotional when
he found out the show on
which he was appearing
would be the series finale
- something he did not

Elks honor veterans for their service


ByADRIANNEPETRILLO
SPECIAL TO
THE GONDOLIER SUN
The Benevolent
Order of the Elks
Lodge 1854 of Venice-
Nokomis held a benefit
dinner and raffle for
veterans and wounded
warriors. Exalted Ruler
Sven Nelson welcomed
everyone in attendance
for coming to honor
these brave patriots.
Commencing the cer-
emony was the Honor
Guard from Venice
High School. Lodge
veteran adviser Jim
Lamb, a 20-year-and-
six-month Air Force
veteran whose service
included three tours
of Vietnam, a tour in
Okinawa and a tour in
Thailand, recounted
some of his experienc-
es but broke down in
tears recalling them. To
this day those horrible
events are as vivid to
him as they were while
he served.
Gerry Stellwager,
Veteran Committee
chair, introduced
retired Col. Ben Knisely
of the U.S. Army,
noting the following
details about his life:
Knisely grew up in
Osprey, graduated from
Riverview High School,
was a Selby Foundation
Scholar and then
graduated from the
University of South
Florida before entering
the military. He retired
from the Army after 27
years of service.
As a first lieutenant,
while piloting a UH-1
Medevac helicopter
in Vietnam, he was
shot down in the
A Shau Valley over
enemy territory and
was severely wounded
in the crash. He and
his crew were listed
as missing in action
but were subsequently
found and rescued
in a daring mission
executed by the Army's
famous 101st Airborne
Division.
The details of the
harrowing escape and
evasion escapades by
Knisley and his copilot,
and his subsequent
rescue efforts, are
chronicled in a book
by Peter Dorland called
"Dust Off 65." The in-
fantry lieutenant who
led the amazing rescue
was recommended
for the Congressional
Medal of Honor.
After Knisely's re-
covery, he returned to
flying Medevac heli-
copters. During his last
tour of duty he served
on the special staff
of Gen. H. Norman
Schwarzkopf during
Operation Desert
Shield and Desert
Storm.
Currently, Knisely
serves as executive
director of a wounded
warrior's organiza-
tion called Operation
Second Chance. He
also is a military
and veteran liaison
Officer for the Sarasota
Country Sheriff's
Office.
Also honored that
evening was retired
Staff Sgt. William
Castillo, who was born
in South America,
became a U.S. citizen
and enlisted in the
Army. During his
second deployment to
Iraq, he led a squad
on a security mission
where his Humvee

was blown apart by an
improvised explosive
device in an enemy
ambush. Castillo was
blown away from the
exploding vehicle. As
he crawled back to
help his fellow soldiers,
he was shot twice in
the chest, once on the
top of his head and
once in the right leg.
Even though injured,
he continued strug-
gling to get back to
the Humvee, but as he
reached for the driver,
a rocket-propelled gre-
nade struck the vehicle
and a huge piece of
shrapnel severed his
left leg, rendering him
unconscious. He was
the only survivor of the
attack.
After his rescue,
he spent two years
at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center re-
covering from his
multiple wounds. After
being discharged,
he retired from the
Army and was turned
over to the Veterans
Administration for fur-
ther care. He now lives
in Orlando, with his
family. While we would
call him a hero, he is
very quick to tell us
that he is just another
veteran.
Each year Veterans
Day gets us thinking
about the incredible
sacrifices of everyone
who served in the
military, both past and
present. It inspires us
to wonder how we can
do our part to support
our troops.
Give thanks for
our freedom because
freedom is not free.

"Drive Sober or Get

Florida's roadways.
Officers will be
aggressively looking


for impaired drivers
and will arrest anyone
caught driving im-
paired. Enforcement
efforts will include
sobriety checkpoints
and heavy enforcement.
The special enforce-
ment crackdown runs
through Jan. 1.
"Lots of folks will be

holiday festivities, and
we want everyone to be
safe on our roadways"
said Lora Hollingsworth,
FDOT chief safety offi-
cer. "That's why our law
enforcement partners
will be stepping up ef-
forts to catch and arrest
impaired drivers. If you
are caught drinking
and driving impaired,
you will be arrested. No
warnings. No excuses."
During 2011 there
were 920 alcohol
related/suspected
fatalities in Florida
resulting from motor
vehicle traffic crashes.
The holiday season is


a particularly danger-
ous time. Nationally,
in December, approxi-
mately 30 percent of all
fatalities in motor vehicle
traffic crashes involve
alcohol-impaired drivers.
"We want everyone
to enjoy their holidays,
but we also want our
roadways to be safe,"
said Col. David H.
Brierton Jr., Florida
Highway Patrol. "We
will be out in force to
help save lives, and we
are not going to tolerate
impaired driving. So
remember, 'Drive Sober
or Get Pulled Over.' We
will be watching."

face jail time, loss of

financial consequences
such as higher insurance
rates, attorney fees,
court costs, lost time at
work and the potential
loss of job.
There are three simple
steps people can take
to stay safe and out of
trouble:
1. Plan ahead. If you
will be drinking, do
not plan on driving.
Designate a sober driver
or find another safe way
home. Even one drink
increases the risk of a


crash while driving a
motor vehicle.
2. If you are impaired,
find another way
home. Use a taxi, call a
sober friend or family
member or use public
transportation.
3. Be responsible. If
someone you know is
drinking, do not let him
or her get behind the
wheel. If you see an im-
paired driver on the road,
contact law enforcement.
Your actions may save
someone's life, and inac-
tion could cost a life.

Band seeks help with album


By HANNAH BULICSEK
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
Seek the Reason, a
local band that started in
August 2011, just picked
up its fourth member
last month. They're now
seeking help to record an
album.
The group's beginnings
were casual.
"My girlfriend was
sick," said guitarist Josh
Coleman, 21, of Sarasota.
"She said, 'I'd love a
smoothie from Smoothie
King.' So we went to
Smoothie King. Then I
realized I forgot my straw.
So I walked back in."
"Josh came back in,
and I worked there at the
time," said drummer E.J.
McCloud, 21, a lifelong
North Port resident. "I
thought, 'He looks like a
guitar player long hair,
skinny jeans and tattoos.
So I asked him, and he
said yeah. So I asked if
he wanted to jam and he
said again, yeah.
"A few days later, we
(wrote the music for
songs) 'New Beginnings'
and 'Blank Slate,' first try.
That was over a year ago.
The song'New Beginnings'
hasn't changed."
The two needed a
bass guitarist and a lead
singer, so they put an ad
on Craigslist. Through
the site, McCloud and
Coleman snagged

Arcadia, a North Port
High School grad they'd
actually known previ-
ously through mutual
friends. He became the
band's vocalist. The three
of them easily hit it off,
McCloud said.
While Coleman and
McCloud were recording
their first EP for "New
Beginnings," Fathauer
wrote lyrics for the tune:
"Why do we turn the, the
pages/Let's write a story/
New Beginnings, no di-
rection/New Beginnings,
where do we go now?/I'm
feeling lost and alone
now."
Eight months later,
Fathauer introduced

fourth member.
Seek the Reason played
as a three-member band
at the Hoosier Bar in
Osprey in January as part
of a national competition
that ends Dec. 31 called
"The Battle for North
America." It's currently
in second place out of
about 120 other groups.
"I think our ambitions
are to stay connected to
our originality and trying
to remain independent.
We're not aiming to get
signed," Fathauer said.
Although members
say they aren't tied to
a specific genre, their
songs have soft-rock
elements. For one
of them, "6:15 AM,"
Coleman found the

melody at 17, "during a
hard time in my life," he
said.
Coincidentally, Fathauer
wrote the heavy lyrics to
"6:15" "about my dad,"
he said: "I woke up at
6:15 a.m./Stood by your
door, there again/I heard
you breathe/But your chest
didn't rise/I came back
again, to feed a hunch/
That's when I noticed, that
the dog was the one in the
room breathing."
"The process of writing
- we open rehearse; to
write, we let the song
have emotion, let it set
tone and mood and what


energy you get," Fathauer
said. "Every song has
its own unique energy,
emotion and feel. Yeah,
I think within myself. I
try to relive or revisit an
emotion or situation and
bring it to the song."
The band currently
is trying to raise $2,500
to record a full-length
album at the renowned
Bieler Bros. Recording
Studios in Pompano
Beach, Fla. Bieler Bros.
has collaborated with
artists including Jennifer
Lopez, Dashboard
Confessional and Kevin
Rudolf. So far, they've


raised $205.
"We are going for a
community outreach
for money or support,"
McCloud said.

the Reason, "Like"

Bike shop caters to riders of all ages


By CLINTON BURTON
STAFF WRITER
Englewood native Gary
Vasbinder used to travel a
lot for work, making sales
for wholesalers or manu-
facturers spending time
in the community, not
really being a part of it.
"I would see people,
but we didn't interact,"
he said.
But he always found
time for bicycling.
"It's been my passion
for 20 years. When I
would come home from
the road ... and I would
have all the aches and
pains ... you have to have
an outlet," he said. "I
made my bike my outlet."
Now the Lemon Bay
High School graduate
and his wife, Melody,
own a bike outlet, so to
speak.
The Vasbinders are the
owners of Real Bikes, a
bicycle sales and service
shop at 461 S. Indiana
Ave. It's the second loca-
tion for the company,
which started in Venice,
where the first shop is
still located.
Although there are
other bike stores in the
area, Vasbinder said,
the interest in the sport
means plenty of custom-
ers to go around.


Live to Ride


Ouirk-O-nom ics
I I ILI1


"I wouldn't say any-
thing negative about
any of the others, but we
have sales and service
and a passion to ride," he
said. "We can work with
anyone, from someone
just entering the sport
to someone who is an
absolute bike enthusiast.
We've made that journey
ourselves and we try to
share that journey with
others."
That's not just a sales
pitch. Nearly every
weekend the Vasbinders
are out in the commu-
nity, either riding with
the Coastal Cruisers
Bicycle Club or other
groups, participating in
a charity fundraiser or
just spreading the love
of the sport. Organized
rides generally have
something for riders with
any level of experience
or fitness. Even casual
biking is good exercise,
Vasbinder said.
"Biking is a nice,
no-impact way to burn
calories," he said.
Vasbinder's 98-year-
old grandfather only


recently traded in his
two-wheeler for a trike.
In fact, Vasbinder said,
seniors are a significant
part of his business.
"When we are on charity
rides, like for diabetes or
MS, and we're on the 150-
mile rides, we see older
people who you would not
expect to be on a bike and
they're actually fast," he
said. "I wouldn't want to
be in front of them if they
were in a hurry."
For $5, starting Jan. 5,
Real Bike customers can
sign up for the American
Diabetes Association
Tour De Cure on April 7,
which starts in Lakewood
Ranch, Vasbinder said.
Like many events -
not withstanding the
half-triathlon that ran
through South County
in late October the
Tour De Cure will have
categories for multiple
skill levels, from 10- to
100-mile-long rides.
If he signs up, the long
ride should be no prob-
lem for Joel Calabrese,
who lives near Shamrock
Park in South Venice.

Gary and Melody Vasbinder, with an antique bicycle sometimes called a penny-farthing, recently
opened Real Bikes, a bicycle sales and service shop, at 461 S. Indiana Ave., Englewood.


He said he's "almost 62"
and has been riding with
the Coastal Cruisers for
about five years. He said
he hadn't been on a bike
since he "was a kid" until
he got started with the
Cruisers.
Now he and his wife,
Sarah, each ride about
120 miles a week and regu-
larly complete 100-mile
"century rides" together.
"I did the first one


four years ago with the
Coastal Cruisers group,"
he said. "I liked it and
I've done over 12 now."
Like most sports, easing
into biking is generally
good advice, and there's
plenty of options nearby.
Sarasota County boasts
miles and miles of trails,
including the Legacy
Trail. Some are paved,
some are natural, and fa-
cilities vary from location


to location, butVasbinder
said the trails are helping
to increase the popularity
of the sport, and to focus
attention on healthier
lifestyles.
"Everyone is really
paying attention to what
they are eating and how
they are exercising," he
said. "They're learning
how to live smarter and
healthier."

"I actually cried because
I was so upset by it," he

people, and how much we
were able to do. You don't
realize until you're actually
there how much you're
appreciated even just by
the masses who come out

Student spotlight


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

When Renee Napier and
Eric Smallridge, the man
who as a drunk driver
killed Napier's daughter,
Meagan, spoke about it to
Venice High School stu-
dents Oct. 19, senior Alicia
Miller helped facilitate the
event.
She was Smallridge's
personal aide on the VHS
campus that day.
"I'm a member of the
Student Leadership Team
and leader of my group of
four students," Alicia said.
There are several
groups of four within the
SLT. The SLT hosted two
assemblies for all VHS
students.
"Bo Walters (VHS
student) is leader of
the team and is very
involved. He wanted to
put on the assembly and
enlisted me and other
members to help. We all
pitched in," she said.
Alicia is also involved


in other activities that
help to inform and ben-
efit her fellow students,
according to Nicole
Wolfe, SLT adviser.
"As a freshman, Alicia
was eager to find more
opportunities to help oth-
ers," Wolfe said. "She was
leading a Relay For Life
team and volunteering
at a local middle school.
The following year, Alicia
was selected for a peer-
counseling program."
As a peer counselor,
Alicia began working
with special-needs stu-
dents from the VHS tran-
sition program, which
helps students transition
into high school. Her
"compassionate and
empathetic nature made
her a perfect fit for
assisting in the transition
program," Wolfe said.
Going a step further,
Alicia started Best of
Friends, to do more to
make the special-needs
students feel part of the
school community. This


program brings regular
education students
together with special-
needs students.
"The impact on the
special needs and regular
education students has
been huge," Wolfe said.
"I wanted the program
to be a social influence
on these students,"
Alicia said. "We plan
activities out of school,
like the Halloween and
Thanksgiving programs
we put on, and we
planned a general holi-
day event for December."
They held a pool party
at the school and, later, a
beach party at Caspersen
Beach pavilion, places
where they didn't have
to pay. But they have
some funds because last
year they sold candy.
This year they will bowl
for intellectually and
developmentally dis-
abled students and ESE
students, Alicia said.
There are two transi-
tion classes, according to


Alicia, one for younger
students in ninth and 10th
grades, another for those
in 11th and 12th grades.
"I volunteer with the
younger students as Best
of Friends because the
older students usually
have jobs," Alicia said.
Alicia belongs to an-
other club for peer coun-
seling that helps students
learn Facebook etiquette.
She has an internship
with the Herald-Tribune
newspaper; serves as head
editor ofVHS's newspaper,
The Beat; is involved with
student government as
secretary of the senior
class; and serves on the
National Honor Society
committee.
Alicia believes her
strongest supporters
are her family Greg
and Sue Miller and
siblings Jenni, Jessica
and Rebecca and
her adviser, Wolfe, who
inspired her to do what
she wants to do.
She has been accepted

Grebe is perfect on AP exam


FROM THE SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

The College Board
recently announced
that Pine View School
graduate Anthony
Grebe earned every
point possible on the
Advanced Placement
Macroeconomics exam
he took in May.
Grebe, who currently
attends Washington
University in St. Louis,
was one of only 17 stu-
dents to earn the distinc-
tion among the almost
100,000 students around
the world who took the
test in 2012.
The College Board,
which administers the
AP program, recently
informed Grebe and



[iTifl


Pine View Principal Steve
Largo about the rare
achievement.
"We congratulate
Anthony on this out-
standing accomplish-
ment," said Largo. "We'd
also like to recognize
Sharda Jagdish, his
AP Macroeconomics
teacher, for her ability
to engage students and
help give them the tools
they need to excel in a
college-level course."
Advanced Placement
exams are based on a
composite score of 1 to
5, where 5 is equivalent
to a grade of A in the
corresponding college
course. Grebe not only
received the top score
of 5 ranking among
15.5 percent of students


to fall within this top score
category in 2012 but in
doing so, was one of only
17 students in the world to
earn every point possible
on the macroeconomics
exam. He answered every
multiple-choice question
correctly and earned full
points on each of the
essays in the free-response
section of the exam (90 out
of a possible 90 points).
In total, 99,903
students took the AP
macroeconomics exam
in 2012.
The AP exams are
written and scored by
college professors from
around the world and are
designed to cover a full
year of intensive, college-
level knowledge and
skills, so it is very rare for

Culinary treats await you in Door County


By MARY CASEY-STURK
GUEST WRITER

Door County, Wisconsin
is known for its many light-
houses, its quaint towns
and those famous cherries.
Peninsula State Park,
live theater and galler-
ies rank high on many
visitors' lists, but among
the experiences you
will remember are the
culinary delights that
await you. There is no
shortage of great chefs in
the area.
From fine dining to
casual fare, there is
something for everyone,
and this is just a drool-
worthy sampling:
The Inn at Kristopher's
(Sister Bay) offers classic
dining with menu high-
lights including Vegetable
Napoleon and Walnut
Encrusted Door County
Whitefish. Because the
inn is located along the
water, the views from
the tables are nearly as
good as the views on the
tables.
Sweet delights are
found at Wilson's
Restaurant and Ice
Cream Parlor (Ephraim).
Fresh-brewed root beer,
burgers and cheese curds
(you cannot come here
and not eat at least one)
highlight the menu, but
you'll find it a challenge
to order a meal once
you get a glimpse at the
sky-high ice cream
desserts that await you.
The atmosphere is
casual and fun, the staff
attentive and the jukebox
a firm reminder that you
can leave your worries
behind and relax.
Casual dining options
abound, including these
unique restaurants that
add their personal flair:
Wild Tomato Wood-
Fired Pizza & Grill (Fish
Creek) offers up hand-
tossed dough. The pizzas
are baked in a wood-fired
oven and topped with
fresh, locally grown
ingredients.
Julie's Park Caf6 and
Motel offers simple yet
chic rooms and a con-
venient location at the
entry to Peninsula State
Park and to Fish Creek,
which beckons everyone
to stop and have their
picture taken in the
giant purple chair out
front. From homemade
meatloaf to the Czech
roast pork dinner, there
is certainly comfort in
the food.
Fred & Fuzzy's
Waterfront Bar & Grille
on Sister Bay has a
great cherry margarita,
relaxed beach-side
dining and stunning
sunset views.
For a decadent snack,
visit Sweetie Pies, just
south of Fish Creek.
Choose from dozens
of fresh-baked pie
varieties, including
raspberry, Door County
cherry, apple caramel
and chocolate chess. In
winter months, it offers
pie-making classes.
Many people enjoy
a visit to Al Johnson's
Swedish Restaurant &
Butik (also on Sister Bay),
not only for the good
food, but to see if those
are real goats grazing
on the roof. Yes, that is
real grass and yes, those
are real goats. The roof
is covered with sod.
Weather permitting, the
goats enjoy the fresh air


and attention. Check
out the goat cam on the
website. The authentic
Swedish family restau-
rant is famous for its
pancakes with ligonber-
ries, its Swedish meat-
balls and other Swedish
fare.
Tour the area aboard
the Door County
Trolley. The company
is especially known for
its winery and culinary
tours. The winery tour
allows you to tour the
"Boutique Winery" area
of the Midwest. Each of
the four award-winning
wineries included on the
tour is unique, with a
range of tasting options
including reds, whites
and fruit wines. Even tra-
ditionalists cannot help
but enjoy the varietals
of Door County cherry-
infused fruit wines.
Tours include the
chauffeured trolley
ride, winery tours and
tasting and a gourmet
lunch. For a moving
feast, consider the
Door County Culinary
Trolley Tour. Get behind-
the-scenes access and
participate in tasting
at five unique culinary
destinations. Door
County Trolley is just
south of Fish Creek at
the Orchard Country
Winery. The winery itself
offers tasting and a vast
gift shop featuring fruits,
juices, candies and
more.
When you need a
caffeine boost, step into
Door County Coffee and
Tea Company (south
of Fish Creek). Its cafe
is terrific with a wide
variety of meal options
(including breakfast),
plus all sorts of coffee
options. The company
produces more than
100 coffees right on the
premises. Take home
your favorites from
the shop or have some
shipped home.
At Ellison Bay check
out the Savory Spoon
Cooking School. Owner/
chef Janice Thomas has
turned an old post office
into a trendy market
with kitchen wares and
gourmet treats, includ-
ing Wisconsin artisanal
cheeses. Plan ahead
for one of her classes
(seasonal) and test
your talents by prepar-
ing Tuscan classics,
Moroccan dishes and so
much more.
There are so many
gastronomic treats in
Door County you'll be
hard-pressed to pass an
orchard without stop-
ping to try a fresh apple
or those famous Door
County cherries.
Seaquist Orchards
Farm Market (north of
Sister Bay) is the place to
grab some cider, baked
goods and fruits and
prepare a picnic or a
spread to eat in front of a
fire on a crisp fall or brisk
winter evening.
Consider too that this
is Wisconsin. Don't for-
get the cheese. Renard's
is a family-operated
business in Algoma.
Renard's offers a cheese
curd bar where you can
flavor your own curds
to eat now or take with
you.
Many restaurants have
embraced the field- or
stream-to-table move-
ment. Much of the fish
served is locally caught


- including that served
at a traditional fish boil,
which is an event in
itself as fish and vegeta-
bles are boiled outside
before the fabulous -
and flaming finale.
Finishing off this meal
is cherry pie Door
County cherry pie.
Door County food
includes pride in every
bite and each sip of wine.
Often the owner is at
hand, ready to discuss
the community and the
menu with guests.
Follow the scent of the
cherries.
For more information
and seasonal hours at
these locations and
many more, visit www.
doorcounty.com.

The special per-
son of this week is
Justin Fennell, the
Venice Gondolier Sun
photographer.
He is usually in the
background clicking
away, getting a perfect
picture. During the past
few weeks he's captured
Santa and children and
lights and brought the
holidays to life with fabu-
lous pictures we've all
enjoyed. A few weeks ago
he had a great picture
of Miss Venice crowning
the new queen at the Sun
Fiesta.
It's fun to capture him
on this page doing his
thing. On top of it all, he
is a nice person.
Justin Fennell is one
of the photographers
who make Venice a great
place to live.

Let's Go! Features Editor


What's on your

Christmas list?
By now many of you have completed your out-
of-town holiday shopping. Gifts are on their way to
out-of-town friends and relatives. By Monday evening,
most folks will nearly have completed their shopping.
I use the term "nearly"for those of you who might
have forgotten the local organizations that make this
area so special. Drop something in the bucket when-
ever you see a Salvation Army bell ringer. That money
stays in the area and, should there be a hurricane or
other calamity, you could be glad you helped.
If you enjoy area venues such as Lemon Bay Play-
house in Englewood, Venice Theatre, The Players in
Sarasota or concerts by the Venice Symphony or Venice
Concert Band, consider adding one or more of those
organizations to your holiday list. Every gift helps.
The price of a ticket rarely covers the actual cost of a
production.
Even professional theaters such as Florida Studio
Theatre, Banyan Theater Company, West Coast Black
Theatre Troupe and the Asolo Repertory Company,
among others, can use help. All provide great enter-
tainment. Many also provide other community services
ranging from acting classes to play-writing programs
for young and old alike. FST alone reaches thousands
of students annually with its school programs that
encourage play-writing. The Asolo's Kaleidoscope and
Venice Theatre's Loveland Follies benefit adults with
developmental handicaps. Hearing loop systems in
most area theaters are expensive but bring theater to
the hearing impaired.
Consider adding one or more of these organizations
to your gift list. We all will have a merrier holiday and
better new year.

'Lincoln'tops Golden

Globe nominations
The Civil War epic "Lincoln"scored a record
seven Golden Globe nominations for director
Steven Spielberg, including best director, best
picture, and best actor honors for Daniel Day-
Lewis.
It was the most Golden Globe nominations
one of his films has ever received, and also
included best supporting actor and actress nods
forTommy Lee Jones and Sally Field, as well as
best screenplay and score. By contrast, his 1993
classic "Schindler's List" earned six Golden Globe
nominations.
"Django Unchained"and "Argo" followed with
five nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press
Assn. on Thursday morning. Quentin Tarantino's
slavery Western "Django Unchained," which opens
Christmas Day, earned nods for best director, best
picture and two supporting actor nominations for
Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz. Among
the nominations for Ben Affleck's political thriller
"Argo"were nominations for best director, best
picture, and best supporting actor for Alan Arkin.
The nominations wrap one of the most closely
watched weeks of the awards season, which kicked
off Monday with the announcement of nomina-
tions for the Critics'Choice Movie Awards, followed
by the SAG Award nominations. The films and
performers honored this week gain front-runner
status leading up to the Academy Award nomina-
tions, which are to be announced Jan. 10.


Let's Go! Editor


What's going on with

Let's Go!

As you read through today's Let's Go! I'd like to point out some specific
areas that are new, have been modified or are just things you should
know. I will go in order so it's easy for everyone to find what I am
referring to.
First, you'll notice I have added to the Out and About section. Reading
through, I would find it difficult to determine what a listing was because
often it was just a person's name or a weird band name. I decided to add
in parenthesis what type of band it is, if the listing happens to be a band,
or if it's a name, clarify that it is a singer. Hopefully this has helped some
with reading the Out and About section.
Next, the old "pub crawl" page has evolved into "meet your bartender."
After hitting many pubs from Sarasota to Punta Gorda, I decided the
bartenders I talked to while doing the pub crawls were pretty cool. Why
not let all my readers meet the bartenders and tell about great
restaurants in the process? So now you will see a "meet your bartender"
feature that will list the restaurant they work at and why they love their
job there, plus some other fun facts.
We have been getting a great response for Around Town photo
submissions. I encourage all of my readers to send in their photos every
week to be posted on the Around Town page. Whether it be you at an
event we listed in the previous week's Let's Go! or out to lunch with your
friends, or even a picture of your grandchildren at the park, show us what
fun you're having in the community. Please send photos with names,
where you were and what you were doing to letsgo@sun-herald.com.
This week I've added a page entitled,"At the TheaterThis Week."The
theaters are a huge part of our local communities and sometimes it's
hard to keep track of what's showing where. I will be adding classes that
are being offered, auditions being held and tickets going on sale to this
page in the near future. For those of you involved in the theater please
send all of your information to me so I can develop a great resource for
not only those who love to go see the shows, but also those who enjoy
putting them on.

this year.
A shuttle service will be available from handicapped parking
spaces from noon to 3 p.m.

special, 21-year community tradition. We particularly don't want
anyone to miss or be alone for the holiday meal"said Senior

be provided. If you are homebound, you can have a complete
dinner or dinners delivered to you. To assure good service for
both, call 941-587-0905 as soon as possible, but no later than
noon on Christmas Day.
Orders to take out for you or someone else who can't come

By DEBBIE FLESSNER

It should come as no surprise that Santa Claus enjoys
visiting the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota. And rumor has it that
this trip is Mrs. Claus favorite one of the year, because she
gets to come with him.
Who could blame them? There are so many great
family activities planned for both guests and locals that
the Ritz may very well be a must-visit spot for the holiday
season. The festive atmosphere starts at the front door.
"The holiday decor at the resort is beautiful and almost
whimsical this year,"said Liza Adler Kubik, public rela-
tions manager for the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota. "We've got
some really fun decor inside the lobby and a beautiful
gingerbread house in our downstairs lobby."
One of the most popular holiday events with the
younger set is the Breakfast with Santa. It's a buffet-
style meal which includes mini-waffle and mini-pancake
stations for the little ones, as well as loads of fun.
"Santa and the elves come in and it's a perfect photo
opportunity," Kubik said. "The kids can sit with Santa and
tell him how they've been."
A couple of new holiday happenings this year that are
sure to become fast favorites are the Santa Tuck-ins and
Storytelling with Mrs. Claus.
"For our in-house guests, on Friday and Saturday night


before Christmas, we're going to have Santa Tuck-ins,"
Kibik said. "Santa and Mrs. Claus will come in, read you a
story and tuck you in."
Storytelling with Mrs. Claus will take place near the
lobby area where the gingerbread house is. There will be
pillows lying on the floor and children can make them-
selves comfortable and listen to Mrs. Claus read them a
book.
Christmas Day Brunch at the Ritz is always a festive
event, but Kibik said this year's holiday meal is an even
bigger one, with carving stations, delicious seafood,
fresh sushi, caviar and a decadent display of desserts.
"This will be a very luxurious brunch, with over 16
culinary and action stations," she said. "That means there
will be a chef at those stations preparing your food to
order."
And the next week, after Christmas is over, the holiday
fun continues with a New Year's Eve dinner and party
in the CdZ restaurant. This one, however, is meant for
adults. It will be a six-course dinner experience, which
also includes a bottle of Dom Perignon for each couple to
help them ring in the New Year.
For more information on all the holiday events at the
Ritz-Carlton Sarasota, please visit the website at www.

By CHRISTINE ANUSZEWSKI
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Made Here Market in Placida's Fishing
Village is a great place to look for American-
made items that you can't find in the stores.
With upwards of 100 artists exhibiting at one
time. This is the place to look for the unusual,
unique and one-of-a-kind items.
The numerous local artists feature original
work at the market ranging from Cyprus tree
lamps, sea glassjewelry, photography, pottery,
blown glass, shark tooth jewelry, kiln fire glass,
metal work and painting to name a few of the
treasures to be found. There is also a food truck
this yearwith light refreshments by Nancy and
Kelly Lanning.
The concept of the"made here market"
began in Miami's Coconut Grove back in the
1940s. Artists had no way to showcase their
work, they began stringing a clothesline
through the palm trees and hung their work
from clothes pins. Instant gallery!
Margaret Albritton owner of the Margaret
Albritton Gallery was the brainchild of the
market. She started it three years ago. "I
wanted to give artists in the area who didn't
have experiences at shows and the public an
opportunity to meet the artist and to meet
them and know things are still made in this
country,"said Albritton.
John Hatch owner of Hatch Gallery agreed
with Albritton and added,"Allowing artists to
set up for free, support local artists and give
back to the community." Hatch also states that
it gives an emerging artist a way to figure
out their price range for first-time exhibitors


SCaptain Jack, of Placida, makes
beach glass jewelry from seaglass
found on the shores of Lake Erie.
According to legend "when a mermaid
weeps her tears fall to the sand and
turn to glass:'

and to get to know the market. The shows are
supposed to be laid-back and fun.
Albritton anticipates that the market will
be steady and busy well after Christmas and
through the Seafood Festival in March. She
emphasize that it's up to the artist to do their
own public relations by letting the community
know when they are there and to be in touch
with the local media to let newspapers know of
potential opportunities to publicize the show.
"It's important to let people know that there's a

large group of artists in the area."Albritton said.
It's also a wonderful experience for both sides
with nothing to lose and a fun experience.
Albritton has seen vendors from as far
north as St. Petersburg to as far south as
Naples. About 300 or so have registered, and
it changes from time to time with as few as
40 to as many as 80 participating at one time.
During the season the numbers will go up.
You definitely don't want to miss the market
It's an exciting and happening place in Placida.

Sea turtles and dolphins have taken up
residence in Venice in record numbers this
season.
The influx is tied to the latest fundraising
effort of the Venice Art Center Sea
Venice.
Painted primarily by area artists, the
colorful representatives of Gulf Coast marine
life can be seen throughout the downtown
area as well as along Nokomis Avenue and
on the city's cultural campus which includes
the Triangle Inn, Venice Public Library,
Venice Community Center and the Venice
Art Center.
Prominently displayed at the art center
is a turtle painted by world-famous marine
artist Wyland who is known for his gigantic
murals of undersea life.
The Wyland connection came about
because of Venice resident John Kearney
who owns Kearney Moving & Storage, an
agent for National Van Lines.

-,jf dA Jh~JA


" P ',, ^ - 1
,Kearney said he thought of Wyland as.
soon as he heard about the project which
will support local tourism while also gener-
ating funds for art center programs.
"Our town has a heart for both the arts
and marine life," Kearney wrote in an
email."Wyland is an artist best known for
his artistic and philanthropic message of
marine conservation, so the connection had
to be made. National Van Lines is in partner-
ship with the Wyland Foundation moving
their marine and environmental education
centers around the country. I talked with
Sea Venice's chairperson, Paul Mosely,
about that and the next thing I knew I had
an email telling me that I had two days to
deliver a Sea Venice turtle to Wyland at his
home in the Florida Keys."
Area residents can see one ofWyland's
major murals at Mote Marine Aquarium in
Sarasota. There also is a Wyland Gallery on
St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota.
There also is a Wyland mural on one of
Kearney's trucks.


SThe Sea Venice turtles and fdophins will -
remain on display until April 2014 when there
will be an auction. The auction following the
downtown display of the art center's Pigs in
Paradise plus sponsorship fees generated
some $250,000 for the center.


'. The Venice Gondelier.un, the meidiar-
sponsor for the event, has a turtle
gondolier just to the left of its main
entrance at 200 E. Venice Ave., on the
island in Venice.

Venice Theatre's Generations Series is

and writer Scott Keys).
The show will take place on Venice

"A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite
things to do each season,'says Executive/
Artistic Director Murray Chase. "Young
people return each year, playing new roles
as they get older. College students plan
their Christmas breaks around the show.
And entire families work together in the
cast and crew. It's a wonderful tradition
that's been a part of our theatre for
13 years now."
This is Chase's 11th year as director of"A
Christmas Carol." Music Director, Michelle
Kasanofsky, has also been involved with
the production for 11 years. Other long-
time cast and crew include Lori Chase as
the Voice of Christmas Past (11 years);
college student Alyssa Hunek, who has
performed for 12 out of 13 seasons; high


school senior Shane Oss, who began as
Tiny Tim, and for the last several years
has run the sound board; college student
Hannah Betterton, who appeared on stage
in her younger years and has been Stage
Manager for the last five; and Booker VPA
student Sydney Deal who has moved up
this year from assistant choreographer to
choreographer. New company members
join the cast each year as well, including
this season's Tiny Tim, Ryan Hunek. A full
cast list can be found at www.venicestage.

Eric Watters, who is playing Scrooge for
the 11th year, exclaims, "Where else can
old folks like me dance and sing on stage

first time? Their energy and enthusiasm
is contagious!"Watters says he is thankful
to be in good health this year. During


the run of last season's show he was in
treatment for cancer. Although he had
an understudy available, (Jim Lovett who
had played the role in the past) Watters
managed to star in all five of the perfor-
mances. Friends, patrons and fellow cast
members are delighted that Watters has
a clean bill of health and is back in full
force this season.

I'. II ,I I, I "
I ', , 1,. I I I' , , , (' ,, , ,
The Travel Team of Burnt Store Presbyterian
Church is offering a trip for Horticultural Exposure
on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
The first stop will be to learn about hydroponic
gardening at Hydro-Taste Farms. By definition,
hydroponics is a method of growing plants using
water without soil. It was discovered in the 18th
century that plants absorb essential mineral
nutrients in water. When the required mineral
nutrients are introduced into a plant's water
supply artificially, soil is no longer required forthe
plant to thrive. Almost any plant will grow with
hydroponics. Aftera short guided tourto learn
about this gardening you can take part in you-
pick (and you-buy) fresh fruit and vegetables.
Visit www.hydrotaste.com for more information.
Next stop will be Orchid Mania Nursery nestled
on 10 acres of trees and ponds in the quiet
countryside where more than 50,000 orchids are
grown and sold. Participants will take a staff-led
tour of the six greenhouses containing many
wild and hybrid species and receive an overview
on the science and process of growing orchids.
You will have the opportunity to purchase any
of these beautiful varieties. You will receive
expert advice on orchid care that will insure your
growing success. Visit: www.orchid-mania.com
for more information.
There will be a time out for lunch at the


Troyer's Dutch Heritage Amish Buffet. Lunch is
included in the price of the trip.
The last stop will be Mixon Fruit Farms where
we will ride the Orange Blossom Express and
learn all the secrets of citrus while discovering
a delightful new world in the grove. The tours
are packed full of educational tidbits and trivia.
The tram will travel past the Children's Magical
Maze, Wedding Pavilion, Gazebo, and Wetlands
Pond with a stop at the Wildlife Rescue. You'll
enjoy an interactive educational show with
rescued Florida animals, reptiles and birds. After
the tour, be sure to get directions to the Gazebo
and Koi Pond to feed the Koi. There will be time
for buying some ice cream, homemade fudge
or citrus products from the huge gift shop. Visit
www.mixon.com for more information.
The trip also includes motor coach transporta-
tion and all gratuities.
Depart from Burnt Store Presbyterian Church
Jan. 22 at 8 a.m. via motor coach and return to
the church at approximately 6 p.m.
Cost per person is $69. Reservations are
requested by Dec. 23.
Reservations can be made at the church on
Sunday mornings and during normal business
hours, 9 a.m. to 4:30 pm., Monday through
Friday, or by email to info83.iiembarqmail.com.

11330 Burnt Store Road, Punta Gorda, two miles
south of the US 41/Burnt Store Road intersection.

Lights, action and Mickey for






Christmas


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Do Christmas your way at the Walt
Disney World Resort.
Spend a day or more checking out the
giant Christmas trees and coordinated
decorations in the resort hotels. At the
Grand Floridian, be sure to also stop by
the giant gingerbread house. It is just
past the tree which takes up most of
the lobby space. There also is a large
gingerbread carousel at the Beach Club
Resort.
The tree at Animal Kingdom Lodge
has an African theme and the one at
the Wilderness Lodge pays homage to
America's Northwest. The tree at the
Contemporary Resort is said to be
70 feet tall.
Disney Imagineers have at least one
giant warehouse area just to house
the resort hotel trees and decorations.
With the opening of the addition of
Fantasyland and the Art of Animation
Resort, there are definitely more places
for decorations this year and likely
more warehouses in which to store
them. In November, a Disney release
mentioned 1,300 decorated trees on the
property plus a wreath measuring 25
feet in diameter on the Cirque du Soleil
building in Downtown Disney West Side.
At Disney's Hollywood Studios, some
10 miles of holiday lights sparkle in the
Osbourne Family Spectacle of Lights -
through Jan. 6.
It is amazing what Disney folks do in
the middle of the night to transform
each of the parks and hotels for the


changing seasons. Wreaths outnumber
trees but not by much, surprisingly.
Saturday, I was at the Candelight
Processional at Epcot for at least the
10th time as that is my holiday tradi-
tion. At least twice I have been there
when the choir from Venice Presbyterian
Church was featured. More than 200
guest choirs appear during the season.
Because my friends and I made reserva-
tions well in advance, we also were able
to enjoy lunch at the Rose and Crown in
Epcot. There is something about dining
in England during the holidays even if
we did eat salads. The last processional
this season will be Dec. 30.
All of World Showcase is decorated for
the holidays but then so is all of Walt
Disney World.
It is even snowing nightly at the
Magic Kingdom during Mickey's Very
Merry Christmas Party but just two
nights remain to party with Mickey.
The last party this year will be Dec. 21.
Note that it is a special ticket event that
begins after the park closes for the day.
Cinderella's Castle looks like a giant
ice castle this season and Animal
Kingdom celebrates with Mickey's Jingle
Jungle Parade during the day. The
real animals bed down early.
Epcot remains open later though.
Enjoy Holidays Around the World and
the spectacular Illuminations Reflec-
tions of Earth which features laser lights
plus fireworks nightly.
For reservations or information, visit
waltdisneyworld.com or call 407-934-
7639 (W-DISNEY).

Heffner and Hefner Offer


Holiday Jazz in


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Jazz "siren" Katt Hefner
loves music, all types of
music. "I'm like a cat with
nine lives when it comes to
vocal styles. If it's a song I
like, I have to sing it," she
jokes. Katt, who comes from a
musical family, began singing
Gospel music back in Ford
City, Pa. Her father, mother,
and four brothers all sang
and wrote songs together.
Uncle Frank was featured in
"Jet Magazine" and on Doo
Wop Shows. When Katt began
performing on her own, she
received wide acclaim and
recognition for her ability to
"capture and mesmerize her
audience"with a voice that
has been described as being
"rich in strength and clarity."
Her credits include musical
tours from Pittsburg to Japan
and many stops in-between.
On tours she's shared the stage
with greats including Patti
La Belle, The Temptations,


Connie Haines.
Back by popular demand,
Katt Hefner, who now resides
number of Sarasota venues
including a benefit at Michaels
on East and a jazz and blues
concert at the Floribbean
Restaurant & Lounge. In
Venice, The South County
Jazz Club is sponsoring a
special Christmas concert-
the brother and sister team
Heffner and Hefner. "We are
constantly being asked about
the different spellings of our
name," explained Katt. "When I
began singing professionally


I went by Hefner, but later,
when my brother Stan began
accompanying me on his
Hammond Organ, he kept
the spelling, Heffner." It's
the music that matters,
though, and jazz lovers are
in for a musical feast when
the brother and sister team
open with "Jingle and All That
Jazz"followed by a number of
holiday tunes. "We specialize
in Swing, Blues, and Gospel
music, and we're constantly
changing and adding songs,"
said Katt.
Stan "The Man" Heffner
learned to play a vintage
Hammond B3 organ by
watching live performances
at clubs in Pittsburgh,
where he still lives.
He now accompanies
Katt and sings too.
When not traveling
back and forth
to perform in
Florida, Stan,
a Vietnam
veteran, plays
the organ


or keyboard at his church
and does missionary work in
Panama and Kenya where he
helps to raise money to build
churches. Heffner and Hefner
believe in "giving back to the
world." Katt spent a great deal
of time at Sarasota Memorial
Hospital while her son was
undergoing cancer treatments.
After his recovery, she was
inspired to enter the
medical field and
began working as a
surgical technolo-
gist at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital.
Katt Hefner has


released four CDs and recently
finished one with her brother
entitled "Over and Under
Blues." On their website, www.
skattanproductions.com, fans
can order CDs and view their
schedules. They also have a
five-piece band with Butch
Thomas, saxophonist; Vincent
Sims, guitarist; and Joe Renda,
drummer.

W QDw [Ml


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you visit Robert Garcia's Facebook
page to learn more about him and his
popular acoustic band, you'll want to
read the names of all the members:
"Robert Garcia Guitarist, Singer,
Songwriter, Performer, Entertainer."And
that's it. The man is literally a one-man
band.
Originally from New York, Garcia splits
his time between the New Jersey shore
and Venice, playing his music to adoring
fans in both spots.
"Music is all that I do," he said."I
play mostly'70s music on an acoustic
12-string guitar."
Garcia has been playing the guitar
since he was 7 years old, and through
the years, has had the opportunity
to play in front of many audiences.
During that time, he has also held
numerous side jobs, while still keeping
music in his life. About five years ago,
he decided to concentrate on music
full time, and says he has never been
happier.
"I kept coming back to this because I
love the audience interaction," he said.
"I play most every night of the week."
That audience interaction is one of
the things that sets Garcia apart from
other musicians. He doesn't just get up
on a stage and perform, he involves
the people who have come to see him
in sometimes unorthodox ways.
"What I enjoy most is performing'one-
hit wonders"' he
said. "I will
makean


offer to the audience that I will buy
them a drink if they can name the artist.
It's actually quite funny, because they'll
all come up to me while I'm playing to
give me an answer. It opens up that
implied barrier between performer
and audience."
Drawing in an audience in that way
is a big step towards what Garcia says is
his ultimate goal when he goes out to
perform each night-initiating an inti-
mate exchange with his audience. And
speaking of intimate, one of the things
he does when the capacity of the room
he is playing in for the night reaches
"critical mass," is to turn the venue into
one big toga party.
"People (in the audience) are just so
different and diverse, it's so fun," he said.
"I always want to make it fun for the
audience."
As well as playing popular'70s songs
and top 40 hits, Garcia is an
accomplished songwriter and is busy
working on something new for his fans.
"I'm recording some original material
for the first time in 20 years," he said.
"I'm going to be giving it away for free
on my website."
That website is currently undergoing
some major reconstruction, but will be
back online by the first part of the year.
In the meantime, if you would like to
enjoy Robert Garcia's band of one, you
can find him every Monday night at
Feeling Swell, on Anna Maria Island, as
well as at one of his upcoming dates:
December 26 at Nikki's Place in Engle-
wood, December 27 at New Fall Inn in
Englewood and December 28 at Water-
side Grill at the Gasparilla Marina.
For more information, visit his Face-
k book page at Robert Garcia Solo Act.

annual return of The Perlman Music
Program Sarasota Winter Residency,

for students, ages 12 to 20+, who play
the violin, viola, cello, or bass. With a
faculty including Itzhak Perlman and
some of the most gifted musical talents
of our time, the PMP Sarasota Winter
Residency offers an artistic and personal
experience that changes students lives
forever.
The Perlman Music Program Sarasota

attend more than 20 free events, including
orchestra and chorus rehearsals, master
classes, and works-in-progress recitals.

PMP/Suncoast presents the Sarasota

celebrated Ariel String Quartet visited
area schools, interacting with nearly
1,500 students in school performances
and classroom visits, and performing
for 500 in public performances. The four
members of the Ariel String Quartet,
PMP alumni and gifted performing and
teaching artists, presented interactive
performances and hands-on training for
area music students and their teachers.
The group will return in late February
for the second week of this three-week,

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 $1 hot
S.....$ dog and $1 draft beer.
Today, Sunnybreeze offers golfers a choice of a picturesque yet challenging 18-hole course or a nine-
SN .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 A Section oflth
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
Fs b tF i S e lTinformation 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.

Opening lead: Queen of 1

Boy Scouts should make good
bridge players. Their motto "Be
Prepared" should be the guiding light
for all knights of the green baize.
With only three-card support for
partner's spade suit, North did not
consider his hand worth a forcing
spade raise. However, when South
raised diamonds at his second turn,
the double fit improved North's


holding and made the hand good
enough to jump to game.
West led the queen of hearts and
the defenders quickly banked two
heart tricks. Declarer ruffed the third
heart, cashed the king and ace of
spades and was floored by the 4-1
break. There was now no way to
draw trumps and run the diamonds,
and declarer had to concede down
one.
South's line would have been
successful against a 3-2 trump break
or a 4-1 break if East held the long
trumps, but it failed to take the actual
distribution into account. After
ruffing the third heart, the winning
line is to cash the king-queen of
trumps and, on learning the bad
break, abandon spades and start on
diamonds. A defender can ruff at any
time and force declarer with another
heart, but declarer can ruff in hand,
cross to dummy with the ace of
spades, in the process drawing the
last outstanding trump and cash the
remaining diamonds and ace of clubs
for 10 tricks. Count them!

Pain meds, proper breathing

will treat rib injuries


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: I recently
cracked two ribs at home.
I had a terrible accident,
and there was much
pain. The doctor treating
me would not wrap my
chest, and only gave me
pain pills. What is the
standard treatment for
rib fractures? L.B.
ANSWER: Rib fractures
are not uncommon,
and can happen with
even a moderate blow
to the chest. When a rib
fracture is suspected, an
X-ray usually is done to
confirm the diagnosis,
to look for other injuries
and to see if the fracture
is displaced meaning,
potentially, that a sharp
end of broken rib can
do damage to the lung
and other tissues inside.
Fortunately, usually this
happens only in high-
impact injuries.
Unlike other bones,
ribs cannot be effectively
immobilized, even with
the tightest chest wrap.
The ribs move every
time you breathe, so
healing can be pain-
fully prolonged. Pain
medication is necessary,
especially because the
body's natural tendency
is to "splint" over to one
side, causing the affected
ribs to move less. This is
dangerous, because the
lungs don't inflate as well
underneath the area of
the fracture, and col-
lapse of part of the lung
can lead to infection. I
have seen several cases
of serious pneumonia
due to rib fractures. Pain
medication and breath-
ing exercises reduce the
splinting and the risk of
infection.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: Twenty
years ago, I had surgery
on my lower back due to
disk disease. Although
the surgeon put in plates
and screws, the process
was not successful. I
would have pain all the
time, were it not for hy-
drocodone and tramadol.
I take each of these four
times a day. I have tried
cutting down to three
times a day, but it is too
painful. I saw a different
back surgeon, who said
the best hope for fixing
the problem correctly
would be to go in the
front of the body and
then in the back, anchor-
ing from both directions.
I'm scared to death to do
that. I am now 72 years
old.
My reason for writing is
to ask you if I am harm-
ing myself in any way. I
worry about it a lot. I do

not see any side effects of
the medication maybe
I've become a little im-
mune to them. -V.W
ANSWER: Yours is
a very common story.
Surgery for back pain
helps most of the time -
but sometimes it doesn't
help or even makes
things worse. I consult
surgical colleagues who
are known to be cautious
about the decision to
operate, since a back sur-
gery that fails is the worst
possible outcome. Before
doing back surgery -
especially a second back
surgery both patient
and surgeon need to
consider that back pain
usually gets better over
time, and that surgery oc-
casionally makes things
worse. There are certainly
a few times when back
surgery needs to be done
right away: In the case of
weakness that is getting
worse, back surgery can
save nerves, muscles and
the ability to function.
If you are able to do the
things you need to do, are
getting enough pain relief
to get you by, even if you
still have some pain, then
I would be very cau-
tious about getting back
surgery.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: More than
a year ago, my wife was
diagnosed with CRP. Tell
me more about it. L.B.
ANSWER: CRP,
C-reactive protein, is a
lab test that indicates
there's inflammation
somewhere in the body.
It's not a specific test for
a specific disease. It's
slipped far down in the
rankings of important lab
tests.
However, a new test
called hsCRP high-
sensitivity CRP is used
to detect inflammation
that fosters heart attacks.
An elevated hsCRP is
a value greater than 3
mg/L. This test has to
be interpreted in light of
other tests and in light of
a patient's symptoms. It
can be a deciding factor,
for instance, in starting
a person on one of the
station drugs, the popu-
lar drugs for lowering
cholesterol.

Living lettuce


Dear Readers: Have you
seen the hydroponically
grown living lettuces that
are sold in plastic, clam-
shell containers? I just love
them! It is amazing how
long these lettuces last!
The container is designed
to be a "mini-greenhouse,"
which is what helps make
the product last. The
lettuce still has its roots
attached, and it sits in a
small amount of nutrient-
rich liquid. When ready
to eat, just take off the
number of leaves needed,
rinse and eat. Heloise
Here's another lettuce
hint:

Lettuce wrap
Dear Heloise: I enjoy
your column in The
(Monroe, La.) News-Star.
Before cutting a wedge
from a head of lettuce, I
remove one large outer
leaf. Then I place this leaf
over the cut surface like a
bandage before wrapping it
and putting it in the refrig-
erator. It greatly reduces the
browning of the cut edges.
- Gayle M., Monroe, La.

Easier
deviled eggs
Dear Heloise: Here is
my recipe for easy deviled
eggs: Cut peeled, hard-
boiled eggs in half. Make
a topping of mayonnaise,
mustard and any other
condiments you would
like. Spread this mixture
on top of the cut eggs. You
may add olive slices on
top, minced parsley, etc. -
ElaineW., Harrisburg, Pa.


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

Deviled eggs are deli-
cious! They are so popu-
lar, and this is a clever
shortcut, with a fun twist,
to making them. Love it!
- Heloise

Frozen garbage
Dear Heloise: When
cooking or baking some-
thing that requires eggs, I
hate throwing the shells in
the garbage can, especially
if pickup isn't for a few
days. I take the shells or
any offensive-smelling ob-
ject and put it in a plastic
bag, like one the newspa-
per comes in, and stick it
in the door of the freezer.
On garbage day, I just open
the freezer door and throw
out the plastic bag. This
works well with shellfish,
too. The only trouble is
that you have to remember
to throw it out! Judy B.,
Hobe Sound, Fla.

Added flavor
Dear Heloise: My
brother-in-law has enjoyed
flavoring his hot tea with
candy instead of sugar,
such as lemon drops, or-
ange slices and spice drops.
- Susan M. in Indiana

Woman deep in love triangle

has trouble thinking straight


MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley


DEAR ABBY: I am a
31-year-old, never-mar-
ried mother of two. Last
summer I started having
an affair with "Jordan," the
father of my first child. He
left me when our daughter
was a year old and has
been engaged for three
years in an on-again, off-
again relationship.
I could give you ex-
cuses about why the affair
started up again, but the
truth is we both knew it
was wrong and continued
to do it anyway. I never
stopped loving him and
I thought it would bring
him back to me.
Today I found out from
Jordan's fiancee that they
have set their wedding
date for next spring.
She said they would
like for me to come. As
if it wouldn't be painful
enough to go to the wed-
ding, his fiancee has also
asked me to do her hair
for the occasion. (I'm a
hairstylist.)
Abby, Jordan and I are
still having an affair. I
want to tell her, but I don't
want him to hate me. I
believe this wedding is
a big mistake for many
reasons, not just the obvi-
ous. Please give me some
outside advice. CAN'T
HELP MYSELF IN OHIO
DEAR CAN'T HELP
YOURSELF: OK, the
first thing to do is wake
up, smell the coffee and
accept that resuming the
sexual relationship with
Jordan has not had the
desired effect. He WILL be
marrying someone else.
Next, concentrate on
saving yourself and waste
no more of your time
on him that is, if you
would like a permanent,
monogamous relationship
with someone. Jordan has
given you ample proof
that he is incapable of be-
ing faithful to one woman.
And last, tell his fiancee
that you do not plan to
attend the wedding or do
her hair because you are
in love with Jordan and
have been sleeping with
him since last summer.
DEAR ABBY: I have
known my husband for
seven years and I love him
very much, but I am no


Dear Abby

longer "in love" with him.
Somehow along the way
the spark has fizzled.
We have a wonderful
family and have been
through so much together.
I don't want a divorce. I
want to make our mar-
riage work, and so does
he. So how do I get my
spark back? SPARKLESS
IN TEXAS
DEAR SPARKLESS: That
you and your husband
want your marriage to
work means it is capable
of being resuscitated.
While you didn't give any
details, it is possible that
you have been "through
so much" that it didn't
allow you to concentrate
on each other. Exhaustion
and distraction can cause
a spark to fizzle.
A way to reignite it
would be to spend more
time alone together,
participate in activities
you both enjoy, and make
time on a regular basis
to talk, relax and touch
each other. And if neces-
sary, enlist the services
of a licensed marriage
counselor.

"For he is our peace, who hath made both one,
and hath broken down the middle wall of partition
between us." Ephesians 2:14
There will be no peace in the hearts of nations or
men while walls of indifference remain standing. May
the walls fall and peace like a mighty river rush in to
fill the vacuum that God intended for victorious living.
