Land cleared for new shopping center


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Work has started to
clear vegetation and trees
for construction of the
first new shopping center
inVenice since the Great
Recession. PlazaVenezia,
at the southwest corner
of the Laurel Road/
Pinebrook Road intersec-
tion, will be anchored by
a new Publix superstore
planned for an August
opening.
McLeod Land Services
Inc. is responsible for


the initial site prepa-
ration, according to
Joe Satyshur, project
manager. Following
clearing, contractors will
break ground and start
infrastructure construc-
tion, after the first of the
year, said George McBee
of GMM Consultants of
Tampa, a full-service
real estate development
company.
He confirmed that
the final paperwork
had been completed in
mid-December for work
to begin on the 30-acre


site. Construction of the
45,600-square-foot Publix
store will take 190 days,
said McBee.
Venezia Plaza will have
69,770 square feet total
building space and is
anticipated to provide
120 jobs. Phase one of
the project is to build
the anchor store and six
outparcels, with phase
two being the completion
of four outparcels.
Publix and four out-
parcels will face Laurel
Road. There will be 24,000
square feet for 15 smaller


units, with a parking lot
for Publix of 349 spaces
and an additional 119
spaces for other tenants.
"We currently have a li-
quor store, nail salon and
Chinese take-out signed,"
confirmed Drew Forness,
president of leasing agent
Forness Properties of
Winter Park.
He stated he is talking
with a national fast-food
company for an outpar-
cel, as well as a national
hair-styling company and

STAFF WRITER
When the North Port City
Commission voted 3-2 to
sell the city's stake in Warm
Mineral Springs last week, it
left Sarasota County com-
missioners angry, confused
and, perhaps most impor-
tant, wondering about the
future of the day spa.
"The city and the county
came together in a mutual
partnership on Warm
Mineral Springs, and I'm
disappointed and unsure
of the future of (it)," said
County Commission Chair
Christine Robinson.
The county must figure
out its next step for the 81-
acre day spa, which it pur-
chased jointly with the city
for $5.5 million two years
ago. North Port's decision
to sell the Springs property
came during a meeting dur-
ing which the city was to
discuss its future operation
and development. Despite
some commissioners want-
ing to move the conversa-
tion in a different direction,
Commissioner Cheryl
Cook made the motion
to sell, and Mayor Linda
Yates and Commissioner
Rhonda DiFranco agreed.
Commissioners Tom Jones
and Jim Blucher strongly
dissented.
The decision added an-
other chapter to the saga of
the city-county partnership
in the Springs. County com-
missioners, already unhappy

that the city shot down an
invitation to negotiate, or
ITN, that would combine
a request for proposals for
short-term operations of
the Springs with a transition
to a proposed longer-term
agreement and establish-
ment for future operations,
were angered further by the
decision. The commissions
had voted unanimously for
the ITN process at a July
meeting, before Cook and
DiFranco were elected to
their city posts.
The boards' contract with
Cypress Lending of Naples,


which currently operates the
day spa, ends on June 30.
"I think it's an unfortunate
decision and it's probably not
a great day for the citizens
of North Port," County
Commissioner Joe Barbetta
said. "It's a great community
asset and it's now somewhat
in jeopardy. It's in a pre-
carious position now on how
things will proceed."
County Commissioner
Charles Hines was confused
further after North Port's
vote. He still feels pursuing
the ITN, not selling, is the
right way to go.


"The ITN seems like the
correct route to go to reach
the ultimate goal, which was
buying this property and put-
ting it in the public's hands
to protect it and, at the same
time, make it something
that's an economic engine
for North Port," he said. "This
came out of nowhere."
Hines was agitated
further that the meeting's
agenda that day was aimed
at discussing the invitation
and stated nothing about
potentially selling the city's

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
The Venice Police Department's
new program called SAFE Seniors
Assistance, Freedom and Enrichment
- designed as a safety net for elderly
or recuperating persons living alone,
was tested last week for the first time,
but it wasn't enough to avert a death.
Seniors who sign up for the pro-
gram call into the police department
every morning to verify that they
are all right. If the VPD doesn't hear
from someone by 11 a.m., the police
dispatch calls the resident. If the
resident doesn't answer, an officer will
check on the senior.
Although police officers have made
checks before, Wednesday was the
first time they found someone in
need of medical attention.
City law enforcement say an
elderly resident who lived alone in
the Pinebrook section of Venice had
not responded to phone calls.
Officers went to his home to verify
his well-being. They checked around
the outside of the residence and
found nothing unusual, but heard
a television playing inside. They
knocked at the door and called at the
windows, but couldn't get the resi-
dent's attention.

Gun control on peacemakers' minds


By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER

An assault weapons
ban and aWorld Day
of Peace were fresh on
the minds of members
of the Englewood Peace

Elsie Quirk Library.
The organization is

and Bud Aronson are

The group averages
from six to 20 members
and meets at 2 p.m.
on the third Thursday

Lee, a retired pastor

The group has re-

"It's hard to estimate

No primary leader
emerged to take the reins
because the group has
too many diverse minds,
members say. Gerald
Duisberg, Peter's son, has
not taken control as his

Lee.
Lee works with the

"I share Peter's frustra-

The group continues
to push Peter's vision, he
said.
"We hope to maintain
pressure to cut down the
size of the military," Lee
said. "We want to help
reduce the debt, raise
awareness and build

Slow ride for holiday travelers


By MERAB-MICHAL FAVORITE
STAFF WRITER

Make sure you pack some
patience with your suitcase
before you buckle up and go
visiting over the Christmas
holidays.
The number of people who
will be traveling this holiday
season has gone up significantly
since the last time Santa made
his rounds.
AAA estimates up to 92 mil-
lion people across the na-
tion will be traveling at least
50 miles to their destination for
Christmas the majority going
in cars. Experts say that means
you surely can expect delays if
you're planning to commute on
the highway.
"People are on the move this
year," said Rosenda Calloway,
Southwest Florida district travel
manager for AAA. "We predict
that (Interstate) 75 will be the
most congested roadway within
the two counties.
According to reports by AAA,
car travel has risen 1 percent
from last year, with some
4.3 million people commut-
ing by automobile in Florida,
for an average of 760 miles


round trip. Air travel also has
seen a spike since 2011, with
267,514 people flying to see
their families.
Debbie Tower, spokeswoman
for the Florida Department of
Transportation regional office
in Fort Myers, said the increase
in traffic during the season
could be a result of a recovering
economy.
"What changed was the
economy," Tower said. "Travel
was down for a while, but now it
seems to have changed."
Falling gas prices also could
allow more people to hit the
road for the holidays. According
to Calloway, gas prices are down
nearly 9 cents per gallon from a
month ago, and will continue to
decrease throughout the holiday
season.
"Gas prices definitely have an
impact on the travel during the
holiday season," she said.
With all those people on the
road, you'd think accidents
would be up this time of year.
Not so, officials say.
"There is definitely the
potential for crashes, but it
doesn't inherently mean more
crashes," Tower said. "We
design safe roadways and


intersections, but safety on
our roadways is dependent
on driver decisions and their
behavior."
Fatalities as a result of traffic
crashes have decreased state-
wide, according to a report
by the Florida Department
of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles. The report shows
that between 2010 and 2011,
vehicle-related deaths de-
creased by 2 percent, and over
the last six years, there has
been a 32 percent reduction in
the number of fatalities caused
by car crashes.
Sarasota County, however,
saw fatal crashes increase by
about 7.5 percent.
The report states that the
number of suspected alcohol-
related crashes statewide has
decreased by nearly 4 percent
from last year, but suspected
drug-related crashes have
increased by a whopping
64.41 percent.
Records indicate that over the
last five years, the number of
suspected alcohol-related crash-
es in Sarasota, has decreased by
about 33 percent.

An inside look at execution


By CHRISTY FEINBERG
SENIOR WRITER
People die all the
time in hospitals, in
crashes, in wars.
It's not often a death
involves procedures,
scheduling, witnesses
and press conferences.
But that's what happens
when an execution takes
place in Florida.
Former cop-turned-
serial killer Manuel Pardo
Jr. was executed last week
at Florida
S State Prison.
About
a dozen
citizens -
loved ones
of Pardo's
victims -
PARDO watched,
along with
media and corrections
officials.
There is a real possibil-
ity local residents will be
occupying those seats in
the future because there
are 12 men on Death
Row who committed
murders in this area.
Those opposed to
execution argue it is the
government committing
murder. Supporters view it
as justice, or the carrying
out of a sentence. This isn't
intended to delve into that
deeply personal debate,
but rather to explain what
happens behind the walls
at Florida State Prison.
The execution process
begins when the gover-
nor signs a death war-
rant. But in reality, the
journey to the chamber
begins long before the
governor's involvement.

'My war'
Pardo, 56, killed nine
people over a few months
in 1986. To make matters
worse, he was supposed
to be one of those people
who are sworn to serve and
protect. He was a law en-
forcement officer, a veteran
and a Boy Scout leader.
Pardo claimed he was
killing drug dealers, rid-
ding the Earth of scum,
he told jurors.
Some of Pardo's victims
were involved in the 1980s
cocaine-fueled culture in
Miami, but some hap-
pened to be in the wrong
place at the wrong time.
Even on his last day
alive, Pardo continued to

beat a war drum against
drug traffickers:
"I accept full respon-
sibility for killing the six
men, but I never harmed
those three women or
any female. ... My war
was against men who
were trafficking (sic) in
narcotics, and no one
else," Pardo handwrote in
a full-page last statement.
Pardo had an infatuation
with the military, order,
uniforms but especially
Hitler and his Nazi regime.
He even had his dog tat-
tooed with a swastika.
He asked jurors for
the death sentence, and
that's what they granted
him in 1988.

Death Row
Within about a square
mile on the Starke-
Raiford line live 400 of
the most dangerous men
in the state at Florida
State Prison and Union
Correctional Institution.
The Death Row for
females is located at
the Lowell Correctional
Institution Annex. There
are no local females on
Death Row.
Pardo had been on
Death Row at Florida
State Prison, along with
local inmates Robert
Trease, 59, of Sarasota
County; Michael King,
41, of North Port; and
Dwight Eaglin, 36, and
Stephen Smith, 51, both
formerly of Charlotte
Correctional Institution,
south of Punta Gorda.
Pardo was the third
inmate executed this year
in Florida, and the 74th
since the reinstatement of
the death penalty in 1976.
Pardo spent 24 years
on Death Row, where
inmates live without air
conditioning in a cell the
size of an average area
rug: 6 feet by 9 feet.
Inmates receive three
meals a day in their cells,


where they eat using
sporks. They can shower
every other day. Smoking
isn't allowed.
Inmates may have a
13-inch television in
their cells, but there is
no cable. Radios also are
permitted.
Most on Death Row are
awaiting the outcome
of the lengthy appeals
process. However, James
Ford, 52, originally
from DeSoto County,
has exhausted all of his
appeals. Ford was con-
victed of murdering Greg
and Kimberly Malnory
in 1997 on a sod farm
off State Road 31 in rural
Charlotte County.
Inmates serve an
average of 13 years on
Death Row before be-
ing executed, according
to the Department of
Corrections. Serial killer
Danny Rolling was the last
inmate who served less
than 13 years before being
executed, in 2006. The
three most recent execu-
tions involved inmates
who served a combined
81 years, or an average of
27 years, before their sen-
tences were carried out.

'Death Watch'
When the governor
signs a death warrant,
the inmate is moved to
a "DeathWatch" cell,
which is slightly larger
than a Death Row cell, at
12 feet by 7 feet.
While last-minute
appeals and requests for
a stay of execution make
their way through the
courts, the inmate has
some choices to make.
First, in Florida
inmates can choose be-
tween the electric chair
and lethal injection as
their form of execution.
Pardo chose lethal
injection.
Inmates also can see
visitors, and Pardo met

with eight guests prior to
his execution.
"He's calm," Ann
Howard, communi-
cations director for
the Department of
Corrections, said the
Tuesday afternoon o the
execution. "He's had visits
with family and friends."
He also met with a
prison priest and a bishop.
Inmates are granted a
last meal of their choice,
as long as it costs less than
$40 and can be purchased
locally. Pardo's meal:
white rice and red beans,
roasted pork chunks
and pork chops, fried
plantains, avocado and
tomato slices with olive
oil, eggnog and pumpkin
pie. He ate his last meal at
10 a.m. Tuesday.
"He ate pretty much all
of it," Howard said.

The execution
Pardo's execution was
scheduled for 6 p.m.
Dec. 11.
Victims' loved ones
who wanted to witness
the execution, along
with any law enforce-
ment and prosecution
officials involved, were
brought into the prison
and sequestered in a
cafeteria-like setting. The
members of the media
likewise were escorted
through the barbed-wire
barriers and into a differ-
ent holding area.
The witnesses wait in
their designated areas
with Department of
Corrections officials,
pending any final court
activity that could delay
or stop the execution.
Once final word from
the U.S. Supreme Court
reached Gov. Rick Scott's
office Tuesday night, the
witnesses were transported
by van to a building at the
back of the prison com-
plex. The media witnesses
entered the execution


MANUEL PARDO JR:S LAST STATEMENT:
"I want to apologize to my family for the pain and grief I have
caused all of you, having to undergo this ordeal. You are all so loving
and wonderful, not desserving (sic) of this nightmare. I wish to set the
record straight as to my victims. I accept full responsibility for killing
the 6 men, but I never harmed those 3 women or any female. I took
the blame as I knew I was doomed and it made no difference to me, at
the time, having 6 or 9 death sentences. I don't want this hanging over
my head, especially these last few minutes of life, because my war was
against men who were trafficking (sic) in narcotics, and no one else!
"On a lighter note, as a New Yorker and loyal fan, I was happy to see
my Yankees and Giants win so many championships during my lifetime.
The Jets, on the other hand, did what they do best: choke, crash and burn
... they stink! I was estatic (sic) seeing Spain finally win the World Cup. It
was a life long dream that became reality. I hope the Spanish govern-
ment never votes to stop the bullfights as they are part of our culture and
heritage, and if they do, I'm glad I won't be alive to see such a travesty!
"In closing I ask my family to please not suffer and to be strong.
I've made my peace with God and now accept the consequences of my
actions. Remember Michi you are Airborne and hardcore... no tears! I
will always be a part of you, and will live in your heart, mind and soul.
May God bless and protect you and everyone affected by this. I am now
ready to ride the midnight train to Georgia.
"I adore you Michi girl ... eternally!"


chamber at 7:23 p.m.
The actual chamber
room is a very brightly
lit, bare room chilled by a
loud air-conditioning unit
located high on a wall.
The white noise from the
air conditioner is about
the only noise heard in
the small room, which
holds four rows of seats.
All the front-row
seats were occupied for
Pardo's execution. And
all heads faced forward,
eyes focused on the
large, smudge-free glass
window covered by a
curtain or shade. As the
minutes ticked on and as
the curtain stayed down,
the humming of the air
conditioner faded into
silence. Some feet tapped
nervously. No one spoke.
At 7:30 p.m., the cur-
tain slowly rose and the
silence grew louder.
Pardo's bald head lifted
slightly to look at the wit-
nesses. His wrists were
strapped down. A white
sheet covered the rest of
his body.
By the time witnesses
could see him, the IV
already had been placed.


Most could not see the
tubing that led to a hole in
the wall behind his head,
where the chemicals were
introduced into the lines.
At 7:31 p.m., Pardo spoke
his final words, which
were not understood
by witnesses and were
later relayed by Assistant
Secretary of Institutions
Tim Cannon: "Airborne
forever. I love you, Michi
baby." Cannon then
announced the execution
process would begin.
Pardo closed his eyes.
He opened them a few
times, but mostly kept
them closed.
At 7:33 p.m., Pardo
yawned and turned his
head slightly to the right.
There were no visible
twitches, movements
or other disturbances.
He looked like a man 20
years older than his age
who drifted off to sleep
after a long day.
A doctor checked Pardo's
pupils and heart, and
Cannon announced that
the execution had been
carried out at 7:47 p.m.
The curtain dropped.

Springs sale prompts questions


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
When city commis-
sioners considered
doubling North Port
Fire Rescue District fees,
more than 250 people
rallied to stop the rate
hike.
Before commission-
ers outlawed ATV and
camping in the city,
hundreds of residents
filled the city chambers
and overflow room at
City Hall twice to speak
against the vote.
As commissioners
discussed a potential
new $315 rate for Road
and Drainage several
years ago, a record
standing-room-only
crowd at the night-
time meeting at the
North Port Performing
Arts Center let elected
officials know why they
should reconsider.
But when commis-
sioners recently met to
discuss an invitation
to negotiate, or ITN,
an agreement with
Sarasota County for
Warm Mineral Springs
Day Spa's management
and development, only
a handful of residents
attended the meeting.
After a motion was
made by Commissioner
Cheryl Cook to sell the
$5.5 million 81-acre spa
the city jointly owns
with the county, no
public comment was
offered. It passed 3-2.
Unlike the fire district
hearings, ATV ordinance
and Road and Drainage
proposal, the sale of the
Springs was not on the
agenda. Residents say
they didn't know a vote
would be taken. Some
said they would have
attended if they knew
the issue was going to
be discussed.
"I didn't vote to
purchase the Springs
spa," said former city
commissioner Vanessa
Carusone. "That said,
I would've been at the
meeting to talk about
why the city should
keep the Springs.
Residents were told
there was the potential


for low-density condos
and a small hotel for
years, at least 15 years.
Nothing changed.
There's also plenty of
land to preserve."
Former county com-
missioner Jon Thaxton
said the vote surprised
him.
"We heard from many
residents before (the
joint purchase)," he
said. "There were sev-
eral opportunities for
residents to give reasons
why they were for or
against the purchase.
It's concerning that the
(city) commissioners
completely ignored an
agreement 10 com-
missioners voted on to
move forward."
Florida courts have
recognized that not
every item needs to
be on an advertised
agenda. North Port City
Attorney Rob Robinson
has said the commis-
sion didn't break the
law in not advertising
discussion and possible
action on the sale of
the Springs. However,
the attorney general's
office "strongly" recom-
mends commissioners
"postpone formal
action on controversial
matters coming before
the board where the
public hasn't been given
notice.
"The purpose of the
notice requirement of
the Sunshine Law is to
apprise the public of
the pendency of matters
that might affect their
rights, afford them the
opportunity to ap-
pear and present their
views, and afford them
a reasonable time to
make an appearance if
they wished," according
to the attorney general's
office. "In the spirit of
the Sunshine Law, the
city commission should
be sensitive to the com-
munity's concerns that
it be allowed advance
notice and, therefore,
meaningful participa-
tion on controversial
issues coming before
the commission."
Longtime city resident


Peter Bartolotta said he
would have come to the
meeting.
"Meetings on con-
troversial issues are
usually held at night,
but that didn't happen
in this instance," he
said. "It did not follow
its advertised intent ... I


felt blindsided."
City Manager
Jonathan Lewis said
there's still a chance for
the public to speak on
the issue.
"The City Commission
voted (3-2, with Tom
Jones and Jim Blucher
against) to sell the


Springs," he said. "We
don't own the Springs
in its entirety. There are
many details that have
to be worked out in
order to go in the direc-
tion the commission
has asked us to go."
Cook and
Commissioner Rhonda


DiFranco, who voted
to sell Dec. 18, could
not be reached for
comment. Mayor Linda
Yates, who also green-
lighted the sale, agrees
there are numerous
details to sort out.

Unemployment down across area


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER

Unemployment in
Florida dipped by a
0.4 percentage point
last month to a season-
ally adjusted rate of
8.1 percent, making
it the largest month-
over-month decrease in
unemployment since
October 1992, according
to the November jobless
report released Friday by
the state Department of
Economic Opportunity.
The jobless rates across
Southwest Florida also
saw encouraging changes,
with Charlotte, Sarasota
and DeSoto counties all
reporting declines.
Nationally, the


unemployment rate was
7.4 percent.
Sarasota County had
a modest decline in its
unemployment rate,
from 8.3 percent in
October to 8.1 percent
in November. Last
November, the unem-
ployment rate in Sarasota
was 10.1 percent.
State and federal rates
are reported differently
from regional figures,
which are not seasonally
adjusted to account for
fluctuations in areas
such as tourism and
agriculture.
"For many of Florida's
families during the
holiday season, there
could be no greater gift
than a regular paycheck,"


Gov. Rick Scott said in a
prepared statement, not-
ing that private-sector job
growth over the month
jumped more than
24,000. "We have more
work to do, but Florida is
clearly on the right track
for greater job creation."
Indeed, the administra-
tion has more work to do,
as wages and job quality
in Florida lag behind the
national rates, local
employment experts said.
Michelle Mashua,
Goodwill JobLink coordi-
nator, said the job-seekers
she counsels are strug-
gling to find permanent
jobs that pay enough
to cover their expenses.
Mahsua said there are
about 200 people a month


using the services the
center offers, including
job searches.
"The biggest complaint
that I have coming
through here is that there
are a lot of part-time
jobs at minimum wage,
and how do you support
a family on a part-time
job, minimum wage?"
Mashua said. "How do
you support yourself,
part time, minimum
wage? You can't do it."
Mashua was among
several job-placement
professionals who said
many people were hired
during the holiday by
local companies paying
minimum wage. They
worry that once the holi-
day season is over, those


same employees will be
looking for work again.
"We had a lot of people
that went to work sea-
sonally, and we always
hope that those jobs will
turn into something,"
said Dan Frees, employ-
ment security represen-
tative at the Southwest
Florida Works office.
"There's a lot of people
available, and so (em-
ployers) can be a little
more picky when they
hire people," he said.
Local experts said
companies appear to be
searching for the "perfect
employee" an educated
and experienced individual
with a broad skill set who
will work for lower pay.
"If you're looking for the


perfect candidate, it's re-
ally difficult to find them.
But if you hire a good-
quality individual, you're
going to win in the long
run, because you're hiring
somebody with quality,"
Frees said. "And if you
treat them right, they're
going to stay with you and
have longevity and be a
valued employee."
According to the DEO,
among the industries in
which Florida saw the big-
gest job gains were leisure
and hospitality (31,200
jobs with a $21,828 aver-
age annual wage); and
trade, transportation and
utilities (24,700 jobs, with
a $37,750 average annual
wage).

Busy year in works for North Venice


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
2013 will see several
improvements that
residents of North Venice
have been seeking for the
past eight years.
Before the start of the
Great Recession, develop-
ers were promising new
shopping centers, big-box
stores, thousands of
new homes and alter-
nate roads to alleviate
congestion at the Laurel
Road-I-75 intersection.
Next year will see some
of their expectations met
with the start of work
on the final southern


link of Honore Avenue
from State Road 681, the
Venice Connector, to the
LaurelRoad/Pinebrook
Road intersection. The
four-lane road will
provide north-south
links into Sarasota to the
Manatee County line.
The widening of 1-75
between State Road 681
and River Road, complet-
ed last year, has alleviated
delays, improved the flow
of traffic and provided
safer entry and access to
three intersections.
The shopping center
planned for the former
mobile home park on


Laurel Road east of the
interstate at Knights Trail
Road failed to come about
when residents raised
objections to the anchor
being aWalmart. Planning
delays and the recession
discouraged surrounding
residential and commer-
cial development.
Another strip mall,
built on the northeast
side of the intersection,
opened at the start of the
economic downturn and
has found it difficult to get
tenants, but will likely see
an upturn this year with
the improvements coming
to the area.


The planned Laurel
Road Ambulatory
Complex announced in
2005 by Sarasota Memorial
Hospital, delayed due to
the economy, is currently
under consideration by
Venice City Council. To
be located at Laurel Road
bordering Pinebrook Road
and 1-75, it would provide
services for North Venice
and Nokomis residents
and be accessible via the
interstate.
With the Honore
Avenue extension provid-
ing new access, the
Walker Family Properties
will get approval to build


Fox Creek, a cluster
subdivision of 140 units
on Ranch Road.
On the east side of
Laurel Road, the Border
Road extension will
provide a link to Jacaranda
Boulevard, 1-75 and South
Venice. The Bridges, a
planned mixed-use resi-
dential development of
1,500 homes by Gulf Coast
Community Foundation,
another project delayed
by economic pressures,
could be reignited.
Plans for at least one
big-box store, origi-
nally slated to be a Home
Depot on Laurel Road


across from the Plaza
Venezia, may also be
revived as the economy
moves forward again.
That Nokomis and
NorthVenice are ripe
for development is also
shown in the confidence
expressed by Publix
Super Markets Inc. of
Lakeland, which is build-
ing the anchor store for
PlazaVenezia. Following
its completion, Publix
will tear down its store
in the Nokomis Village
Shoppes, then build a
modern store with a
pharmacy.

Shrinking supply pushes up area median home values


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
As housing inven-
tories shrink across
Southwest Florida,
prices are surging in
some cases by as much
as 31 percent over last
year according to
local housing reports
released Thursday.
The Punta Gorda-
Port Charlotte-North
Port Association of
Realtors reported
Thursday that the
median sale price
of a single-family
home in the Charlotte
County-North Port
area last month was
23.5 percent higher
than the median price
in November 2011.
Similarly, the median
sale price for a condo-
townhouse jumped by
31.7 percent, compared
with a year ago.
The median price
for a single-family
home was $122,250
in November. That
number was $99,000 a
year ago, according to
the association. In the
townhouse-condo cat-
egory, the median sale
price was $105,000,
compared with $79,750
a year ago.
The median price
means half the homes
sold for more, half for
less.
Prices also rose in
Sarasota County, but
not as dramatically.
According to the
Sarasota Association of


Realtors, the median
price for a single-fam-
ily home in November
was $174,450, com-
pared with $162,000
last year. That's
about an 8 percent
increase. In the condo-
townhouse category,
the median sales price
was $160,000, or a
28 percent increase
over 2011's median
price, according to the
Realtor association.
Meanwhile, the avail-
able housing inventory
remains near the low-
est levels in a decade,
real estate experts said.
In the Charlotte-
North Port area, for
instance, November
housing stocks for
single-family homes
were at a five-month
supply. In 2011, that
number stood at seven
months. In the condo
market, inventory
levels hovered near
the seven-month mark
compared with last
year, when they were
just over a nine-and-a-
half-month supply.
The monthly supply
numbers represent
the time it would take
to deplete the cur-
rent inventory level
at the current sales
rate. Housing experts
say that in a healthy
market, inventory
levels typically range
between six and eight
months.
In Sarasota, inven-
tory levels in the


single-family market
dropped from a nearly
seven-month supply
in 2011, to just over a
four-month supply in
November, according
to the Realtor group.
"Interest rates
remain near all-time
lows, quality properties
are affordable, and the
economy is recovering
at an improved pace,"
Sarasota Association
of Realtors President
Laura Benson said in
a statement. "We're in
the middle of a great
market, and the tradi-
tional buying season is
only getting started."
Housing experts said
low interest rates, an
improved economy and
a better employment
picture are helping
to fuel the real estate
market's recovery.
In Charlotte County,
closed homes sales in
the single-family cate-
gory totaled 238, which
translates to a nearly
4 percent increase over
last year, according to
MLS data compiled by
the Realtor association.
The condo market saw
65 total closed sales, or
an increase of 30 per-
cent over last year.
"We're definitely
seeing more transac-
tions. We're definitely
seeing an uptick in
average and median
prices in both houses
and condos," said Luke
Andreae, an agent with
RE/MAX Harbor Realty.

"I think it's getting
better and inventory is
down."
In Sarasota County,
the association report-
ed 556 closed home
sales in the month of
November, up from 435
last year. In the condo
market, the association
reported 188 closed
last month, versus 181
in November 2011.
Across the state,
the numbers paint a
similar picture.
The Florida Realtors
reported a 24.4 percent
increase in single-
family home sales
over last year, and an
18.3 percent increase
in condo sales. Total
sales in November
for single-family
homes and condos,


respectively, were
17,072 and 8,079. The
median sale price for
a home in November
was $150,000, or an
11.2 percent increase
over 2011 figures. The
median sale price for a
condo last month was
$112,000, an increase
of 23.1 percent over
last year.
"Florida's housing
market is back, with
great possibilities
for the future but
those possibilities
are only beginning
to be realized," said
John Tuccillo, chief
economist for Florida
Realtors, at the group's
2013 Real Estate and
Economic Forecast
Conference in Orlando
last week.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


River Road project is an important first step


his just in from the Department
of Mixed Transportation Meta-
phors: There's light at the end of
the tunnel on South River Road.
It may not be four lanes. There
may not be wide shoulders. But the
upgrade of River Road should be a
vast improvement.
Sarasota County was due to adver-
tise bids for the resurfacing project
last weekend. According to Public
Works Director James Harriott, the
project will include pavement milling,
base repair, resurfacing and, finally,
restoration of soil, sod and pavement


markings. The entire distance to be re-
done stretches from an area just south
of the U.S. 41 intersection now in
the early stages of its own reconstruc-
tion to Pine Street in Englewood. In
total, 6.2 miles.
If we squint, can we see the light? Yes.
Will there be a day in the coming
year that drivers won't feel like they're
in a bumper-car derby driving from
Englewood to Interstate 75? Yes.
When they won't have to navigate a
horribly cupped, undulating roadway
made all the more dangerous by the
slightest downpour? Yes.


When they can loosen their vise-like
grip on the wheel, if only a notch or
two, without fear they'll veer into the
oncoming lane? Yes again.
Does this substitute for the need
to widen the entire distance of River
Road from Pine Street to the inter-
state to four lanes with nice, wide
shoulders? Nope.
But the reality is the funding for
that $75 million, $100 million,
$125 million, more? is so distant
you couldn't see a flicker with the
Palomar telescope. In the meantime,
we'll be thankful to have a road that's


considerably smoother and safer.
Earlier this year, county commis-
sioners, urged on by South County
Commissioner Christine Robinson,
transferred $1.5 million from other road
projects that had come in under budget
in order to resurface River Road as soon
as possible. The first ray of light.
The bids are due to be opened
at the end of January. The contract
could be awarded in March or April.
Construction is expected to take four
months, so the entire project could be
done by September.
Finally. Pass the sunglasses, please.


Here's to a


fantastic future


Good morning. Let me be
the first to remind you that
there are only 364 shopping
days left until Christmas.
In all seriousness, it will
take about that long to get
over shopping this past week.
I trust we all are still basking
in the warmth of Christmas
2012 as we look forward to
2013 ringing in next week.
Do we dare make resolu-
tions for 2013 or do we let
the chips fall where they
may?
I think we all start off with
some pretty lofty resolutions
on New Year's Eve, and I ap-
plaud the effort. I often think
if the folks on the planet
stuck to half the resolutions
made, my, oh, my, what a
better world this would be.
Of course, I am assuming
all those resolutions would
be healthy, positive and
good-spirited. Here is hoping
that they all will be, and
good luck on any resolutions
you may have in mind for
yourself.
Since we can't make resolu-
tions for the countries that
make up the planet and we
can only hope for things to
get better in 2013, it might be
a good idea to start a list of
things we hope will change.
Let's begin with hunger. In
2013 the world should find
a way to distribute food to
all the people. I would hope
for world leaders to sit down
and talk about hunger while
putting all of their other
issues aside. Figure out a way
to make sure all people have
food even when there are
differences between nations.
It's a lofty challenge for sure,
but certainly something our
leaders should consider.
How about resolving


conflicts in the world?
Instead of sending our young
into battle with all these
weapons and fighting over
each mile we take, why not
create a computer program
that takes all the military
assets of both nations, runs
scenarios and odds and
chooses a winner based on
the outcome of those analyt-
ics. The loser has two choic-
es: back down and behave or
be forced to turn itself over
to the winning nation. The
world economy would pick
up quickly as every nation
would want to build again.
How about all the money
being spent on space travel?
I hope we take that budget
and allocate the money to
educating the kids of the
world.
One has to think with that
type of revenue stream and
young adults having to worry
less about how to pay for
education, these geniuses
would find cures for disease,
create new infrastructure
formulas and find solutions
to the planet's toughest
problems. Wouldn't that be
fantastic?
The list could go on and
on of things we could hope
for as a planet, but you and
I both know the world has
to resolve to make change.
The good news is that
every new year hope is at
its highest point and we as
a race believe there can be
positive change. Even better,
a lot of individuals go out
and create change in their
neighborhood, their com-
munity or their city. We see
it all the time right here in
Venice and the surrounding
communities.
If we keep that momen-
tum going forward, we can
change counties, states and,
perhaps Washington, D.C.
In the meantime, I think my
resolution this year will be to
never give up hope.
Happy New Year to ev-
eryone from the staff at the
Venice Gondolier Sun!

How? I do not know how
the city of Venice can ask for
$20 million for beach renova-
tion and runway for the airport
while thousands of people are
out of work, homeless and
with no health insurance. We
need to take care of our people
first. If you agree with it, call
this line.
Lost customer. I recently
visited a local bagel shop
and was surprised to see
an elderly couple seated
indoors while their small
dog frolicked atop the table.
They seemed oblivious to the
stream of complaints coming
from several other patrons
seated at other tables. I went
directly to the shop operator
who was at the cash register
and complained about the
dog. She said she had not
observed the dog on the
table, yet would not turn her
head to see the dog, which
was still atop the table. I
then went next door to see
the owner of the plaza who
apologized profusely and
promptly resolved the matter.
I will not be patronizing that
bagel shop again nor will I be
dining at any restaurant that
permits doggie dining either
inside or out.
Competition. Let's get
real here. Anybody who has
been to the emergency room
at Venice Regional Medical
Center had better bring a
long book, a radio, whatever.
They are glacially slow. I
think competition is long
overdue. If Sarasota Memorial
can open up an emergency
center, it would certainly help
our own local one to pull up
its socks and get with it. I
just defy any newspaper to
send three or four people to
an emergency room and tell
them some symptoms and
then sit there and wait and
wait and wait.
Hero. I read your article in
Our Town about retired Air
Force Lt. Col. Ron Dudley. A
very wonderful article. What


Let 'em


Have It
this fellow did in my eyes is
counted as a hero. What he
did during the Vietnam War,
my God. In comparison, the
people in town who whine
about setting chairs out for
the parade. Boy, what do
they give?
Bypass. The manager of
the Sarasota airport says
that things could be worse.
It seems to me it just keeps
getting worse and worse. The
next worse thing is that it
could close. Somebody needs
to go to the Fort Myers or
Tampa or even Clearwater
airport and see what's going
on so that airport can come
back and we can use it instead
of going 80 miles to get to
another airport.
God needed. If they would
put God and prayers back into
the schools, there would be
no more guns in schools and
shootings. When I was a kid,
we had prayers and God in
school and there was noth-
ing like this going on no
violence. So we need to get
that back in.
Crossed off. I see two more
restaurants have doggie dining
permits. That's two more
restaurants I will cross off my


list to go to.
Buzzed. Once again, after
the Connecticut disaster,
the hawks and the doves will
provide all kinds of jawbon-
ing about how we need to
control weapons. What we
need to control is the fact
that someone buzzed the
individual into the school.
Why would you have all the
gun control in the world or
have all the security in the
world at all of these school
sites and someone buzzes
the individual through
who is dressed in combat
clothing and looking like
a warrior? Something else
besides controlling the guns
needs to be done. We have
idiots roaming the streets.
Somehow they need to be
cared for. Gun control is
not the answer. The guns
themselves do absolutely
no harm whatsoever. It's the
will of the individual and
the idiot that's behind the
scenes, whether they use a
car, a bomb, a gun, whatever
the case may be. Take O.J.
Simpson. Did he need to
have a gun? Gripped a knife
and slit their throats. Did the
box cutters on the airlines?
What will we do to avoid this
tragedy in the future?

Help your teen develop high sense of self


STEPHEN
WALLACE
GUEST COLUMNIST

With many kids enjoy-
ing a holiday at home,
their parents may soon
be wrestling with the
question of the season,
"naughty or nice?" In
making the calculation
about their teenager's
behavior, it's a good
question and a fair point.
The answer lies in the
fact that much of what
adolescents think and do,
by developmental design,
walks the line between
naughty and nice or at
least normal.
What does that mean?
At a time of breathtak-
ing physical and psy-
chosocial development,
teens are charged with
accomplishing three


critical tasks: establishing
an identity of their own;
becoming more indepen-
dent from their parents;
and forging more adult-
like relationships with
peers. In the aggregate,
their progress on these
tasks forms a young
person's sense of self, a
harbinger of decision-
making, confidence and
overall mental health.
According to Teens
Today research conduct-
ed by Students Against
Destructive Decisions,
high "sense of self" teens
are more likely to avoid
alcohol and drug use,
while low "sense of self"
teens are more likely to
use alcohol and "harder"
drugs such as ecstasy
and cocaine. In addition,
high SOS teens are more
likely than their low SOS
counterparts to report
feeling smart, successful,


responsible and con-
fident. On the mental
health side of the ledger,
low SOS teens are more
likely than high SOS
teens to report regular
feelings of stress and
depression.
Significantly, there is a
parental overlay that of-
fers guidance for moms
and dads everywhere.
For example, 62 percent
of teens with a high SOS
report that their relation-
ships with their parents
make them feel good
about themselves, while
only about one-third of
low SOS teens report the
same. In addition, teens
with a high SOS report
overwhelmingly that
they feel respected by
their parents (93 per-
cent) and close to their
parents (85 percent),
while teens with a low
SOS report significantly


different levels of respect
(8 percent) and closeness
(12 percent).
In other words, parents
have skin in the game!
Understanding the
relationship between
each developmental task
and behavior likely to
accompany it is impor-
tant, as is supporting
the progress of our teens
on their developmental
journey.
Identity: As young
people seek to answer
the question "Who am
I?," they regularly and
sometimes frequently
- try on different roles,
which in turn changes
their behavior and may
make them appear to be
"strangers" on any given
day.
Independence: A drive
toward independence
dictates that our teens
push us away, or at least


hold us at arm's length.
Paradoxically, they need
us more now than at any
other time during the
lifespan besides early
infancy.
Peer relationships:
The peer group is
paramount, and teens
often filter through it
what they hear from us.
Even so, we are the No. 1
reason our teens make
good choices.
Parents can help their
teens achieve a high
sense of self by:
Supporting a wide
sampling of interests,
activities and age-appro-
priate behaviors
Encouraging
separation from parents
and age-appropriate
independence in
decision-making
Teaching peer-to-
peer social skills and
facilitating (positive)


peer relationships
Focusing on pro-
ductive parent-teen
communication.
Perhaps most impor-
tant, we can remind each
other that, in many ways
- and within limits -
our adolescents are doing
what they are supposed
to be doing. They're not
crazy (and neither are
we). In the end, they're
likely a healthy mix of
naughty and nice.

A net loss


As director of the
Wildlife Center of
Venice, I was contacted,
initially by Sharky's
management, and
recently met with the
Venice city manager
as they were and are
exploring options to
mitigate the pigeon
problem at the Venice
Fishing Pier and
Sharky's on the Pier
Restaurant.
I informed those in-
volved in the decision-
making process that the
netting wouldn't work
because of rats and


their symbiotic relation-
ship with pigeons. After
expending $80,000 on
a netting system that
is not addressing the
problem, it's apparent
that it is time to collect
a refund on the guar-
antee and remove the

The netting is sup-
posedly resistant to
ultraviolet light and a
wide variety of chemicals
and came with a 10-year
warranty; however, the
warranty does not cover
resistance to rats.
As I suggested previ-
ously, they should slope

JUNIOR LEAGUE TENNIS





Pine View tennis wins title


STAFF REPORT


The Pine View after-
school tennis kids struck
again as they grounded
out a hard-fought win
to become the 12-and-
under champions of
the Team Tennis Junior
League. Coaches Jim and
Brenda Mertz said the
win was a team effort.
From Oct. 6 to Dec. 1
matches were played
every Saturday against
other clubs in Sarasota
County, with the Pythons
building a 7-1 record.
"All these kids gave
100 percent and fought to
the finish," said Brenda
Mertz, who, along with
her husband, Jim, has
over 25 years of experi-
ence coaching.
"It's not about winning,
but building character.
Building character to
them is learning court
etiquette, working with
a partner, being a good
sport whether they win or
lose and helping out your
partner when they are
down."
Raj Parmar and Anthony
Gaukhman won a thriller
in the final match. They
held a 2-point lead when
a ball was hit down the
middle and both went


for it, crashing into each
other as Parmar's glasses
went flying. The crowd
was hushed as Parmar
got up, brushed himself
off and ignored his cuts
and bruises, his father
calmly helping with the
broken glasses. Parmar
went back onto the courts
sans glasses but with
a supportive partner.
Gaukhman and Parmar
won the match, displaying
the championship attitude
the Mertz Tennis Academy
tries to cultivate.
Brenda said, "You can
have the best strokes
on the court, but if you
don't have your head on
straight you will never
be a champion. All of
our kids are champions.
Most of them come out
on Tuesday and Thursday
after school for lessons
from 4-5:30 and work
very hard."
The Mertzes, in their
eighth year coaching ten-
nis at Pine View, are USPTA
tennis professionals and
have spent the better
portion of their adult lives
helping children learn the
game. They have coached
some kids since age five
and now are coaching
them on their high school
and college teams. Their
daughter Melissa was a

four-year college player at
George Mason University.
Another daughter,
Michelle, was a competi-
tive diver in college.
"These kids are our
friends," said Jim Mertz.


"We want the best for each
and every one of them. We
want to watch them grow
up and help them meet
their goals as a person and
as a player. They have their

enjoy that the most. We do will want to continue learn-

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS WEIGHTLIFTING



Indians sweep tri-meet, prepare for subqualifier


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High
girls weightlifting team
improved to 9-1 this
season with victories over
Manatee and Riverview
in Friday afternoon's
tri-meet.
The Indians' 48-point
total put them comfort-
ably ahead of the Rams
(28) and the Hurricanes
(25).
Venice was led by
senior Emma Hand,
who weighed in at
117.2 pounds and com-
peted in the 119-pound
weight class.
Hand bench pressed


150 pounds and clean-
and-jerked 135, finishing
with an impressive total
of 285.
"It's kind of unheard
of in the 119, locally,"
said Venice head coach
Nancy Tessier of Hand's
achievement. "State level,
she'll be right up there.
She's a very powerful state
contender."
The Indians will com-
pete again Jan. 11 in the
state subqualifier, which
will be held at Sarasota
High. Because a team can
only have two lifters in
each weight class and the
Indians' roster is crowded
in a few classes, Tessier
will only bring nine girls


Emma Hand benched 150 pounds and lifted a total of SUN PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FE
285 pounds. Venice's Amanda Kempf (139-pound class) bench presses
to the subqualifier. have as many as 15 lifters, 140 pounds.


The coach believes the
quality of her group will
outweigh its lack of quan-
tity, as other teams will


nearly twice as many as
the Indians. The top three
lifters in each weight class
will move on to the state


qualifier on Jan. 25.
Tessier said of her
girls who will lift at the


subqualifier two weeks
from now, "They all have
a chance to go forward."

Buying out the city's

Hines said the county's

what to do if North Port
decided it wanted to sell
its portion. However,

DEP south district to include Sarasota, DeSoto


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

In an effort to
streamline its efforts
and toward statewide
consistency in the
implementation of its
rules and policies, the
Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection has an-
nounced it will expand
its south district
boundary to include
Sarasota and DeSoto
counties, as of Jan. 1.
On that date, any
pending permits,
compliance-assistance
efforts or enforcement
cases in those coun-
ties will be handled
by the south district
office, according to

said an open house will
take place from 5 to
7 p.m. Jan. 8, at the
Turner Center Exhibit
Hall, 2250 N.E. Roan St.,
Arcadia, to introduce
the south district team
and answer questions
about its aims and
practices. Another open
house will take place in
Sarasota County on a
yet-to-be-determined
date in early 2013.

before being able to say

before he passed away,"
said Police Chief Tom

the program in March.
"The daughter was


Cerullo said. "With a
balanced workload, dis-
tricts are more likely to
produce better results in
environmental protec-
tion. And right-sizing
the districts meets the
department's goal of
being more consistent."
Cerullo said that
shifting boundaries
also benefits taxpayers
and customers because
of a decrease in drive
time and, therefore, gas
savings.
"In most cases, the
boundary changes
will result in either a
slightly closer drive
from the district office
to the business or no
additional time," he
said. "This will allow
department staff to
be more productive


very appreciative of
the program that
they were able to say

Despite the outcome,
VPD is considering
the police response a
success.
"This is exactly what
the program was de-
signed to do," McNulty
said. "It's the first time


because shorter drive
times will allow for
more work to be ac-
complished in a single
day. Also all district
budgets are grouped,
so this won't create any
budgetary issues."
District director Jon
Iglehart said the south
district office, located in
Fort Myers, supports in-
dustry in the Florida Keys

Patterson said she had
no feeling either way

Shootings heighten area security concerns


By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER
In the wake of the
Sandy Hook Elementary
School shootings
that claimed 27 lives,
some are looking to
law enforcement and
government officials
for answers. Others
are educating and
arming themselves for
protection in increasing
numbers.
Steve Gardiner,
who owns American
Firearms Training, said
demand for classes is
skyrocketing in what is
typically a slow season,
since the Sandy Hook
shootings.
"We usually run
classes every other
week," Gardiner said.
"I wasn't planning on
having any classes dur-
ing Christmas week. I'm
booked up for the next
four weeks."
Gardiner said
the increased busi-
ness may be due to
President Barack
Obama's speech at the
Sandy Hook memo-
rial held in Newtown,
Conn., and the uncer-
tainty surrounding gun
legislation.
Demand is increasing
for all classes, but the
highest demand is for
the basic shooting/con-
cealed permit course
and home/personal
protection for advanced
owners.
"It's all about com-
mon sense," Gardiner
said. "I always stress
securing your firearms
in a lockable device
where only you and
those you trust have
access while keeping
them unloaded. If you
must have a loaded
weapon, I recommend
a biometric (using
fingerprints or other
identifying marks)
security system."
Randy McLendon of
Taking Our Country
Back, a tea party
group, said that as
tragic as events were in
Newtown, "We have to
be smart when it comes
to dealing with it for
the future.
"It breaks your heart
and I'm still crying
about it," McLendon
said. "I think we're
better to take our cues
from Israel than the
gun-control lobby."
Teachers and school
administrators in Israeli
schools carry firearms
to deter attacks on
schoolchildren.
"Somebody in the
school office should
be permitted to carry a
gun," McLendon said.
"I don't have all the an-
swers, but we can't ban
weapons. We have to
be smarter and protect
our kids. It's impossible
to keep weapons out of
the wrong hands."
Joe Gruters, chair of
the Sarasota Republican
Party, said everything
has to be looked at, not
just guns.
"Our hearts and
prayers go out to the
families," Gruters

said. "There can't
be a knee-jerk reac-
tion. Everything in
the culture should
be addressed. We're
moving more toward a
secular society, away
from God. We have to
ask ourselves, what is


it in the culture that is
producing these mass
murderers?"
Rita Ferrandino,
chair of the Sarasota
Democratic Party, said
those with whom she
spoke agreed there
need to be changes to


existing gun-control
laws.
"People were visibly
shaken, upset and very
vocal about changing
the gun-control laws,"
Ferrandino said. "They
want to look at the defi-
nition of what makes


an assault weapon. We
need to fight for stron-
ger gun-control laws.
We need to take a stand
against extremists."
Ferrandino took issue
with statements from
other political groups.
"I strongly reject


statements by the tea
party and GOP leaders,
who are blaming teach-
ers and the separation
of church and state for
the (Newtown) shoot-
ings," Ferrandino said.

61 years


together,


three days


apart

By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER
Few ever reach the
milestone Pete and Joan
Peterson had. They'd
been married for the bet-
ter part of 61 years.
They died within
three days of each
other right around the
Thanksgiving weekend,
separated for just three
days before being
reunited in death.
The Petersons lived
most recently in Venice,
but were longtime
Englewood residents
before that.
Friends and family
reflected on the impact
the couple made on their
lives.
Pete was involved
with turtle conservation
and helped found what
became Coastal Wildlife
Club. ZoO Bass, president
of Coastal Wildlife Club
and a permit holder
on Manasota Key, was
a neighbor of the
Petersons'.
"Wilma (Katz) and I
inherited what became
of his organization, and
it would later become
Coastal Wildlife Club,"
Bass said. "He was a big
supporter of us. They
were great neighbors."
According to Bass, there
was less regulation when
Pete was involved than
there is now. It was within
the last few years that she
heard they had moved to
Venice.
A lifelong friend,
Barbara Anderson of
Englewood, remembers
meeting Pete.
"I came to New York
City from Vermont. My
sister got a room for me
with Pete's aunt from the
church and Pete lived
across the street. My
girlfriend and I had a
room with his aunt. We
were 20 years old, and
so he came over to see
what we were like, and
he took us to a young
people's meeting at
church."
When the Petersons
retired to Florida, the
Andersons followed
suit. The Petersons lived
on Manasota Key and
the Andersons lived in
Englewood.
"We used to go out to
dinner a lot," Anderson
said. "We also went
to the same church
- Englewood United
Methodist Church."
The Petersons were
active in the church and
bell choirs.
"They're very humble
people," said Fonda
Davies, director of music
ministries and organist of
EUMC. "They had a real
great sense of humor."
The Petersons donated
a Heyligers organ for the
Doan Chapel at EUMC.
Davies said she saw
Pete during the week of
Thanksgiving.
Pete died Nov. 24. Joan
died three days later.
"They're both going to
be missed," Davies said.
Joan volunteered for
the Englewood Chamber
of Commerce and
Englewood Clinic before
it became Englewood
Community Hospital.
Pete volunteered with
Boy Scouts and Habitat

Visitors will relive Venice history at new museum


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
A $1 million gift to
the Venice Archives
and Museum from Julia
Cousins Laning could
prove to be as important
to the city of Venice as
anything on the city's
historic timeline.
The gift has already
spurred discussions and
planning sessions that
many hope will lead to
construction of a larger
home for the archives
as well as world-class
exhibition space in
which to tell the story of
this unique city one
of only three planned
communities within the
state of Florida.
"I think it's a wonder-
ful idea," Mayor John
Holic said. "It is a private
initiative with all the
money coming from
donated dollars.
"I'd love to see the
county get involved and
make it a whole county-
wide museum."
Laning lived through
many of the city's impor-
tant times, back to the
days when the master
plan for the city was cre-
ated by John Nolen. She
witnessed construction
of the city's infrastruc-
ture and home sales
by the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers.
During the Great
Depression, she lived at
the Triangle Inn, which
was managed by her
mother, one of 400 or so
people who remained
in the city following the
end of the Florida land
boom and onset of the
Depression. The build-
ing today houses the
archives. Restoring its
first floor for use as a tea
room in homage to its
past is part of the plan
being proposed.
Laning also was
here for the arrival
of Kentucky Military
Institute cadets to new
winter quarters in two of
the city's original hotels,
Hotel Venice and the
San Marco Hotel. Today
those buildings house
the Summit, which
offers assisted-living
care for seniors, and the
Venice Centre Mall. The
cadets' former parade
ground is today known
as Centennial Park.
Other key periods
in the city's past were
the construction of the
Venice Army Air Base in
1942-43 and the arrival
of the Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Circus
in 1960, which ultimately
led to the greatest pe-
riod of growth in the city.
Although the city's popu-
lation in 1960 was barely
inching past the 1,000
mark, circus owner and
president John Ringling
North built a 4,500-seat
arena, modeling its inside
on the Madison Square
Garden of that era. The
arena was filled for every
preview performance
before The Greatest Show
on Earth took off on its
annual tour.
Telling these stories
with "updatable immer-
sive multimedia presenta-
tions" and interactive
exhibits is part of the
vision for the expansion of
the archives and museum.
A feasibility study
was undertaken in
September 2011 by
Economic Consulting
Services. The firm
conducted a "prelimi-
nary market, attendance
and financial analysis
for the development of
a new facility to house
and exhibit the Venice
archives" (quotes are


from a memo report
issued in April).
Other experts were
brought in to add to the
concept. The illustra-
tions accompanying this
article are the work of
Tom Fricker of Fricker
Studio, a San Francisco-
based firm that special-
izes in exhibit design,
and one of the first con-
sultants to be contacted
by James Hagler, director
of historical resources
for the city since 2007.
Also part of that initial
team were Sarasota-
based architect Dan A.
Ionescu, AIA, an associ-
ate of FleischmanGarcia;
project consultant
Nancy Seruto of Temple
City, Calif.; Phillip
Sowder of Design Force,
Inc. of Somerville, Ala.;
and Susan Spence,
content developer and
writer from Altadena,
Calif.
Specific goals itemized
in October included con-
struction of "a state-of-the
art facility for the collec-
tion and preservation of
historic and prehistoric
artifacts related to the
story of Venice and the
neighboring communities
of Nokomis, Laurel and
Osprey"; increased exhibit
space; creation of an en-
gaging visitor experience;
increased educational
opportunities; space for
future expansion of the
collection; workspace for
researchers; office space;
the tea room as a source
of income and to "pro-
mote the cultural vibrancy
ofVenice" by adding a
sixth visitor destination
to the city's Cultural
Campus, which now
includes the Triangle Inn,
Venice Art Center, Venice
Community Center,
Venice Public Library and
the Venice Arboretum at
West Blalock Park.
The city's rich history
was carefully preserved
in the Triangle Inn by
volunteers led by former
city council member
Dorothy Korwek, who
led efforts to move the
building south from
the corner of Pensacola
and Nassau streets to its
present location at 351 S.
Nassau St. in 1991.
Building on Korwek's
legacy as the city's archi-
vist, Hagler increased the
number of annual exhib-
its, more than doubled
attendance figures
and earlier this month
earned national recogni-
tion for the museum
and archives from the
American Association for
State and Local History.
"We are all so impressed
with what you have
accomplished in five short
years," AASLH president
and CEO Terry Davis wrote
to Hagler last month.
Another milestone was
reached in mid-December
when a group of residents
and other interested
parties gathered to learn
about the feasibility of the
proposed expansion.
Those in attendance
were presented with
population figures for
both residents and sea-
sonal visitors plus other
demographics such as
age and income. Slightly
more than 40 percent
of those living with the
primary market area of
the proposed museum
are ages 55 to 85 while the
median age of the market
surveyed was 43. The
median age of the United
States as a whole is 36.8,
according to this study.
Adding tourists and
10,000 students in
grades K-12, brought the
survey's total to 928,268

Famed aerialist Tito Gaona of Venice will fly overhead, as the world's greatest animal trainer,

residents and visitors
"who would have a high
propensity to visit the
subject Venice Archives
Museum."
Also part of the study
was a survey of other
museums and attrac-
tions in Sarasota and Lee
counties, other South
Florida facilities and
four comparable facili-
ties in California. Those
in California are similar
in size, hours, annual
attendance and admis-
sion, if any. There pres-
ently is no admission fee
at the Triangle Inn.
Weighing these and
other factors, the con-
sultants who created the
latest report estimated
an average of some
30,500 annual visitors to
the new archives/mu-
seum/tearoom complex.
The proposed tea room
would take up the first
floor of the Triangle Inn.
Exhibits would move to
the new museum and ar-
chives and offices would
be located on the Triangle
Inn's second floor as well
as on the second floor of
the museum.
Today (Wednesday) is
the last day of the year to
see its current Christmas
exhibit and also to check
out the inn itself with
an eye toward one day
enjoying afternoon tea
there, while contemplat-
ing the ups and downs of
the intriguing past that
resulted into the Venice
of today.
"People don't even
know all the names
involved Knight, Curry,
Higel, Albee, Nolen," Holic
said. "It was the end of the
line for the railroad."
Cost projections
are being made for a
presentation to Venice
City Council sometime
next month.

Take to the skies above Venice in a P-51 Mustang simulator
to experience the days when fighter pilots trained for World
War II at the Venice Army Air Base.


When the first settlers arrived, Venice was indeed a wild
place. Settlers had to deal with alligators, rattlesnakes and
saw palmetto while living on wild turkey and sea turtle meat
and eggs. Long before those days, prehistoric beasts roamed
the area. The skeleton of one such animal, now at the Smith-
sonian in Washington, is expected to be returned to Venice for
the proposed museum.


Visitors to a proposed new museum of Venice history will be
able to explore Florida's wild west, where the country's first
cowboys roamed the range and participated in the first rodeos.

When it comes to alcohol
and your heart health, the
information out there can
be a bit overwhelming. On
one hand, you hear that
alcohol can offer some
heart-healthy benefits. On
the other, drinking could
cause damage to your
heart. What is the truth
behind alcohol and your
heart? The short answer is,
both.
When it comes to alcohol
consumption, especially
around the holidays, the
key is moderation. In other
words, if you do decide
to drink to improve heart
health, do so in very small
doses.
"The kind of alcohol you
drink matters too," said car-

wine. Because red wine is
fermented with these skins
longer than white wine, red
wine contains more of this
healthy ingredient.
"But before you pop
that cork, it is important to
know that you can get the
same antioxidant benefits
from fresh grapes or grape
juice," Fong said. "So for
those who do not currently
drink alcohol, these may be
a better option for getting
heart-healthy resveratrol."
Do other types of alcohol
- like white wine or beer -
have the same effect?
White-wine fans can raise
their glass and get in on the
same heart-healing benefits

suggests the pulp of the
grapes used can be just as
heart-healthy as the skin.

As for beer and hard
liquor, some studies
suggest the folate in beer
may help lower the risk of
cardiovascular disease. In
fact, a few studies have also
found that cardiovascular
patients who drink one
beer a day live longer. And
when it comes to hard li-
quor, a French study found
it does in fact help reduce
bad cholesterol, but not
as much as red wine, and
brings other unfavorable
side effects along with it.
So while alcohol has
shown to have some heart-
healthy benefits, before
enjoying a few drinks in
honor of your body's most
important muscle, remem-

County offers free gardening classes


By BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When planting a cut-
ting in a pot, the potting
soil you use makes a big
difference.
Plant seeds when the
soil temperature is be-
tween 70 and 75 degrees.
When it comes to
fertilizers, less is better.
These are just a few of
the tips Patricia Porchey
gave participants at a
free plant propagation
class held Wednesday
at the Englewood
Community Garden
at Buchan Airport
Community Park.
It's one of a series of
classes offered by the
University of Florida/
Sarasota County
Extension Service on
selected Wednesdays
from 1 to 3 p.m.
About 20 participants
first watched a slide show
narrated by Porchey
explaining the basics of
seed germination, rooting
cuttings, trench layering
and dividing, with lots of
tips geared toward grow-
ing in Florida.
"With a cutting, the
plant that grows is going

to look exactly like the
plant you cut from," said
Porchey. "But if you take
some pollen from a plant,
say an amaryllis, and place
it on another amaryllis,
you may get an entirely
different looking plant."
Seeds with tough outer
coverings need to be
scarifiedd" scratched
or scarred to cut into
the outer coating or
"stratified" refriger-
ated in their growing
medium in a bag be-
fore planting them in
soil, Porchey explained.
For root cuttings,


make sure your potting
soil is high quality. You
can tell by the price and
its ingredients. And it
should be sterile no
sense starting out with
potential problems in the
soil, Porchey said. Snip
off the cutting with a
diagonal cut just below a
node without leaves.
Porchey also explained
the importance of bio-
diversity in your garden.
Besides looking more
interesting and allow-
ing you to experiment,
it also prevents one
disease from wiping


out your whole garden.
Famous disasters like
the Irish potato famine
that occurred in Ireland
from 1845 to 1849, Dutch
elm disease that ravaged
North America in the
1930s and citrus canker
and greening that can af-
fect citrus trees in Florida
are examples of what can
happen without plant
diversity.
Some plants can grow
roots in water, while
others don't do as well.
To try water propagation,
put the cut end in water
and check it regularly.


The Englewood Community Garden is located at the Buchan Airport
Park on Old Englewood Road. Garden plots are available for $25.


When it sprouts sturdy
roots, it can be planted
in soil.
Porchey uses 6-inch
pots lined with a layer of
newspaper to hold the soil
in, and puts four to five
cuttings in each. That im-
proves the chances one or
more will do well. Recycled
materials make good pots
too, Porchey said, such
as mushroom containers
or egg cartons lined with
half-egg shells. Be sure to
make holes in the bottom
of any pot you recruit.
Peat pots are fine for
planting, but be sure to


submerge the entire pot
in the soil. Any exposed
parts of the pot dry out
and wick water away
from the soil.
Participants practiced
rooting and planting
cuttings to take home.
Upcoming classes
include container gar-
dening on Jan. 9, herbs
on Feb. 13 and butterfly
gardening on March 1.

Probstfeld to continue as



interim president at SCF


By KATY BERGEN
BRADENTON HERALD

A month ago, current
State College of Florida
Carol Probstfeld sat at a
trustees meeting and po-
litely, but firmly, resisted
the idea that she should
serve as interim presi-
dent for the college until
a permanent president is
found.
On Tuesday, trustees
persuaded her to change
her mind.
Even with applica-
tions from candidates
across the state to fill the
temporary leadership
position at the college,
trustees said Tuesday
they couldn't imagine
anyone other than the
vice president of busi-
ness and administrative
services in the role.
Trustees voted to keep
Probstfeld in her posi-
tion and add $5,000 per
month to her $148,000
salary until the next
president is found.
Trustees have set a tenta-
tive July 1 starting date
for the next president,
and would have paid
roughly $15,000 a month
to bring someone new on
board.
"There is no transi-
tion," trustee Craig
Trigueiro said after the
meeting. "She knows all
the issues already."
Trigueiro says
Probstfeld impressed
the board in the past
month representing
the college to the state
Legislature and at gradu-
ation, and being praised
widely by faculty.
Trustee Ann Moore
said graduation night
was "magical" with
Probstfeld in charge.
Trustee Lori Moran said
she'd received responses
to emails to the presi-
dent for the first time

for Humanity. Both
volunteered for Meals on
Wheels.
Sylvia Hamilton, man-
ager of Englewood Meals
on Wheels for 26 years,
remembers them.
"They really enjoyed
talking to those who they
gave meals to," she said.
The Petersons' son,
Mark said the deaths
were unexpected, but
he can take solace
in knowing they're
reunited.
"They lived long and
interesting lives," Mark
said. "Dad was working
on a revision of his auto-
biography. He was up to
the 1950s and 1960s."


since she joined the
board.
Probstfeld said Tuesday
that communication is
a big part of how she
aims to boost morale at
the college after former
president Lars Hafner
resigned with a $363,000
severance deal following
months of conflict with
trustees over financial
issues.
"I would do whatever
it would take to make
this college success-
ful," Probstfeld said. "It
seemed like it would be
better not to go through
another change."
She said she plans
to communicate with
board members regu-
larly so that trustees
are informed of impor-
tant decisions before
they arrive at board
meetings.
"I don't want anybody
to be caught off-guard,"
Probstfeld said. "It's
important to restore the
relationship between the
board and the college."
Trustees made it
clear that reworking
how trustees come to
financial decisions is
on the horizon. Board
chair Carlos Beruff
spoke of re-evaluating
in an upcoming meeting
how budget items are
approved.
"One of these policies
that I think the board
members should en-
tertain is that we don't
start a job until we have
comprehensive budget,"
Beruff said.
Several of the con-
flicts between trustees
and former president
Hafner revolved around
the costs of projects
that some trustees said
Hafner misrepresented,
such as the college's
collegiate school and
tennis program. Already,

Mark said he thinks
the reason they were able
to stay together so long
is they listened to each
other. They were never
mean or spiteful, he
said. They were kind, fair
and respectful, even if
they disagreed with one
another.
Mark's sister, Jill
Harrison, said they were
effective in other aspects
in their lives.
"They were both
people with incredible
integrity," Harrison said.
"They were generous
with their time, their
talents and their fi-
nances. These traits are
strongly imprinted in
me and have taught me
that these are traits to be
emulated."

the board has worked
to have more control
over budget items. Two
months ago, trustees
decreased the president's
ability to go forward with
construction projects
without trustees' approv-
al from projects costing
less than $325,000 to
projects costing less than
$150,000.
Faculty members
seemed pleased with the
leadership decision.
Trustees chose 14
members of the commu-
nity and eight represen-
tatives from the college,
including students,
faculty, administration
and career employees,
to serve on a search
committee that will help
vet candidates. Trustees
Beruff and Moran will
also be on the commit-
tee. The list was made
up of individuals who


had expressed interest
or been recommended
to help.
They also chose three
consulting firms from a
list of several that had
submitted proposals to
assist with the search. At
a special board meeting
on Jan. 22, represen-
tatives from ACCT,
Hockaday-Hartford and
National Search and
Education Consulting
will make presentations
before the trustees
choose to bring one on
board.
After Probstfeld was
voted in, faculty and
staff members in the
audience stood and
applauded.
"Thank you for your
confidence in me,"
Probstfeld said. "I hope I
earn it every month."
"You already have,"
several trustees replied.

Sixth-grader chosen as Leadership Ambassador LOOKING FOR


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Not every sixth-grader
gets the opportunity to
go to the nation's capitol
and visit with members of
Congress.
But 12-year-old Joseph
Bevelacqua will be able
to do just that in April. He
was recently nominated
for, and accepted into, the
Leadership Ambassador
program of People To
People Ambassador
programs.
His teacher, Nicolette
Smith, of SKY Academy,
nominated Joseph, based
on his academic achieve-
ment and leadership
qualities.
The program is part of
The World Leadership
Forum, which helps
promising young people
achieve success through
leadership development
and by meeting academic
challenges.
According to the ac-
ceptance letter, Joseph
will be able to "meet
and ask questions of
congressional members
and staff while enjoy-
ing unique access to
America's most promi-
nent centers of justice,


legislation and history."
He will have the
chance to make friends
with outstanding
students from around
the globe.
According to
Wikipedia, in 1956,
former "U.S. President
Dwight D. Eisenhower
sought diplomatic
alternatives to the
wars he witnessed as
a soldier, general and
allied commander. On
Sept. 11, 1956, he called
a White House confer-
ence of 100 top American
leaders, who joined him
in creating the People to
People initiative, focused
on creating cultural
exchange programs.
The first Student
Ambassador Program
was organized in 1962,
with regular programs
beginning in 1967. Until
expansion in the 1980s,
the organization only sent
a few hundred students
abroad each year. In
2002, People to People
International granted a
license to operate student
programs under the

Sandy Hook Elementary School and the community. They made a paper doll template

Florida's grad rate improves


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF EDUCATION
Florida's federal
graduation rate rose by an
unprecedented 3.9 percent-
age points in 2012, moving
to 74.5 percent of students
graduating from high
school within four years.
According to data
released Nov. 30 by the
Florida Department of
Education, this is the larg-
est single-year increase
the state has seen in the
federal graduation rate
since 2003. The rate has
climbed 18 percentage
points overall since then.

know that they have
access to high quality
education that prepares
them for college and
careers," said Gov. Rick
Scott. "The increase in
graduation rates speaks
to the effort and com-
mitment of students and
educators and shows that
our state is moving in the
right direction."
Florida's African-
American students
showed the biggest
increase over the past five
years, rising from 50 per-
cent graduating in 2008
to 63.7 percent this year.
Hispanic students also


performed at signifi-
cantly higher levels, with
72.9 percent of students
graduating in 2012, up
from 59.8 percent in 2008,
an increase of more than
13 percentage points.
"My thanks and con-
gratulations to Florida's
teachers, parents and
school leaders for their
dedication and hard work
to ensure more students
achieve academic success
and graduate with a diplo-
ma," said Commissioner
of Education Pam Stewart.
"We are committed to
making sure students are
ready to take the next step


and pursue college or a
career."
Beginning in 2011,
federal regulations
required states to calcu-
late a four-year gradu-
ation rate that includes
only standard diplomas.
Previously, Florida's
official graduation rate
included both standard
and special diploma
recipients. Students who
earn a special diploma, a
GED-based diploma or a
certificate of completion,
or who have been retained
and are still in school, are
not included in the federal
graduation rate.


Florida is noted for
having some of the most
rigorous graduation
requirements in the
country. In some states,
students who qualify for
a standard diploma in
their state's accountability
system would not meet
Florida's requirements.
The graduation rate
measures the percentage
of students who graduate

within four years of their
first enrollment in ninth
grade. The rate is calculated
for an adjusted cohort
of students a group
of students on the same
schedule to graduate -
taking into account those
who enter or exit the group.
The federal graduation rate
is used in calculating high
school grades and allows
comparison among states.

In Venice, a Christmas encore


FRAN VALENCIC
Christmas bells were
ringing at the Church of
the Nazarene as Maestro
Kenneth Bowermeister
and the Venice
Symphony wished every-
one a Merry Christmas.
The audience could feel
the snow and see Frosty
the Snowman dancing
around the town.
The Christmas concert
brought several standing
ovations.
Visit thevenice
symphony.org or call
941-207-8822 for ticket
info. The next concerts
are the weekend of
Jan. 17 and will feature


Days of Glory, World
War II.

Love and cookies
For the 18th year,
members of the Venice
Yacht Club baked and
packaged cookies for
Hospice families in the
area. This year there were
more than 300 boxes
each containing two
dozen cookies and candy.
The club provided the
packaging. It was amaz-
ing to watch the women
working together getting
the job done.
Chairs Mary Ellen
Ryan and Bonnie
Sammet arranged for
a lunch and Hospice
volunteer Marge Miller
provided music on her
harp. About six Yacht
Club members have been
on board for the project
all 18 years.

2000 turkeys?
Pete Wozniak, CEO


of Venice Regional
Medical Center, gave
each hospital employee
and volunteer a turkey
for the holidays, with the
surplus going to needy
families in the area.
This generosity was the
talk of the town at the
volunteer holiday lun-
cheon at the Jacaranda
West Country Club. Love
is always in the air with
this group, which blesses
the community with its
work at the hospital,
the health park and the
Elephant's Trunk.
The Venice
Presbyterian Chancel
Choir punctuated the
luncheon with lovely
Christmas songs.

Celebrate the
epiphany
Bring the family to
Grace United Methodist
Church Sunday at
3:30 p.m. for a presen-
tation of "Amahl and
the Night Visitors,"


featuring Le Voci di
Venezia. Tickets are
$20 at the door, or call
941-284-5972.

One of our best
The special person of
this week is Venice City
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo.
This nice man not
only attends most events
in town but thanks to
his wife, Brenda, has
ties and clothes for
each occasion. At the
tree-lighting he had a
red-and-white hat that
talked. At a luncheon he
wore a tie that played a
Christmas song.
He has the Venice
spirit. His wonderful
holiday wardrobe and
sense of humor brought
many smiles to young
and young at heart
around town.
Emilio Carlesimo is
one of the fun people
who make Venice a great
place to live.

Countdown to 2013
In Florida, the best places to experience New York City-
type crowds on New Year's Eve have to be in the big theme
parks. It may be too late for hotel rooms in any of the
resorts and park tickets are becoming scarce, but for those
who are not agoraphobic, theme parks have got to be the
places to bring in the New Year.
Legoland has an early event for families with children.
Legoland's fireworks light up the sky at 7 p.m. Kid Standard
Time, according to a release from the park. Call 877-350-
5346.
SeaWorld has a family friendly event at no additional
cost beyond regular daily admission, but the park could sell
out so order tickets now if you can. Call 407-363-2259.
Also child friendly are the New Year's Eve celebrations at
the Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios
at the Walt Disney World Resort. Even on New Year's Eve,
the animals that live at Animal Kingdom are in bed quite
early so there will be no fireworks and loud noises there.
Magic Kingdom offers "Wishes"at 8:30 p.m. and
"Fantasy in the Sky"at 11:50 p.m. Epcot offers double
the fun IllumiNations at 6:30 p.m. and again at 11:40
p.m."Fantasmic"will light up the Hollywood Studios at
6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., followed at midnight with "Lights!
Camera! Happy New Year!"All are included with regular
admission but tickets might sell out early. Call 407-824-
4321.
Universal's CityWalk celebration is geared for adults with
special events at CityJazz, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville
and other places at CityWalk. Admission is $140 plus tax.
Call 407-363-8000.
Or stay home and head to Venice Theatre for the
Franki e Valli and the Four Seasons tribute show with
champagne and hors d'oeuvres on New Year's Eve. Happy
almost New Year!


Glen Mazzara to leave

'The Walking Dead'

By Meredith Blake

Just in time for the holidays, AMC has quite
a surprise for fans of "The Walking Dead."The
megahit zombie series has been picked up for
a fourth season, but will continue without
showrunner Glen Mazzara at the helm.
In a statement Friday announcing the show's
pickup all but a foregone conclusion, given
its record-setting ratings AMC also dropped
the bombshell that Mazzara would no longer
be involved with the series beyond the current
season, which resumes in February.
"The two parties have mutually decided to
part ways," AMC said in the statement. "Glen
guided the series creatively for seasons two
and three. AMC is grateful for his hard work.
We are both proud of our shared success."
The statement strongly hints at creative
differences between Mazzara and the powers
that be at AMC: "Both parties acknowledge
that there is a difference of opinion about
where the show should go moving forward,
and conclude that it is best to part ways. This
decision is amicable and Glen will remain on
for post-production on season 3B as show-
runner and executive producer."
Given the show's gangbuster ratings it
recently became the first cable series to
win the fall TV ratings in the much-coveted
18-to-49 demographic a creative shakeup
of this magnitude comes as a big surprise.

Happy New Year
Well the world didn't end on Friday, Dec. 21, so hope-
fully you didn't fail to make plans for New Year's Eve.
However, if you did, never fear, Let's Go! is here!
If you need help deciding where to go for New Year's
Eve, see some of our suggestions on page 6. Whether
you're looking for dinner specials, live entertainment
or an all-out party, there are options to choose from.
Don't forget to send us your photos showing us how
much fun you had.
Whatever your plans may be, make sure you are safe.
Make sure you are thinking about keeping others safe
as well. Plan ahead to take a cab home if you are a
drinker, or book a hotel room nearby. The $20 you will
spend on a cab ride will be a much better alternative to
a DUI or worse, an accident. Everyone likes to have fun,
but don't put yourself, or others, in danger by making
selfish decisions.
This will be the last week for turkey hunting in the
Let's Go! Count as many turkeys as you can find, fill out
the entry form and drop it at one of the locations listed
for your chance to win a $25 gift card from Publix.
As the holidays come to a close after this week, we
will all be making our New Year's resolutions. My reso-
lution for Let's Go! is to not only be a section that tells
about things that are entertaining, but be entertaining
to read. Your comments and suggestions over the past
few weeks have been greatly appreciated. We have had
requests for the movies to be listed in the Let's Go! and
I am happy to announce that we will be adding them in
late January. I have begun running features on bands
and singers that have been requested as well. Keep
reading, and I'll be talking to you next year!

Above: Porto Bello can
be accessed from the
road and water, and by
boat, car or golf cart.


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

There is something to be said about a
restaurant location that can be accessed
from the road and water, and by boat, car
or golf cart.
Luckily, easy access is not the only thing
that can be said about Porto Bello, a restau-
rant located behind the gates of Burnt
Store Marina. The other thing, according
to Executive Chef Tim Horen, is that it's
a casual, waterfront restaurant with a
continental flair.
"We feature a variety of cuisine, with a
little Italian influence," he said."We really
spread it across the board with our menu
selection."
After Chef Tim's arrival at the restaurant
two months ago, he began working on
rolling out a new menu. The end result is
a varied collection of choices ranging from
fried favorites to lighter fare.
"Our menu is really divided into two
sections;"'Chef Tim said."One for people
who want to enjoy the deck and lounge
with lighter foods, and one for those who
want a standard menu."
If you enjoy fried foods, Chef Tim said
that his Shrimp and Corn-Crusted Oysters
baskets are very popular. Also in the
"hearty" category would be Angus-Stuffed
Crepes and Grilled Sirloin, which is served
with Parmesan mashed potatoes and sauce
Bearnaise. But if you prefer lighter foods,
don't worry, Chef Tim's menu offers many
choices.


"Probably one of our top starters would
be our Heirloom Tomato Salad," he said.
"We use local heirloom tomatoes, baby
lettuces, mozzarella cheese and a basil-
lemon vinaigrette."
He says one of the most popular items he
serves, though, is an entree from the dinner
menu.
"One of our biggest sellers is a chicken
Chianti, which is a take-off on chicken
marsala, which we also serve"'he said. "The
Chianti flavor is bold and is accompanied by
Parmesan risotto."
When you're done dining at Porto Bello
on the weekends, you can stay around for
the entertainment. Currently, there is a DJ
on Friday nights and a live band on Satur-
days. On Sundays, you can enjoy watching
football games there with the NFL Ticket
and special game menus.
Chef Tim may be fairly new to Porto
Bello, but he already understands the value
of the community the restaurant is in, and
expressed his appreciation.
"We're located in Burnt Store Marina, and
our local community here really supports us
in the off-season" he said."We're convenient
to the residents because we're inside the
community, but we're also open and conve-
nient to the community around us. If you live
near here, you don't have to drive to Punta
Gorda or Cape Coral foraa great meal)."
Porto Bello is open Monday through
Thursday, from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., Friday
and Saturday, from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m.
and Sunday, from 10 a.m. (with a breakfast
buffet) until 10 p.m.

When Englewood pizzeria owner, Glenn

not just kidding around.
Flatbread of Englewood pizza is made
from only the finest ingredients. "Chopping
fresh vegetables and herbs and preparing
sauces, meatballs and pizza dough from
scratch is quite labor intensive;'explains
Comeau, as he points to containers of fresh
mozzarella, herbed ricotta, baby spinach,
vine-ripened tomatoes, mushrooms,


eggplant, apple bacon toppings, Italian
pepperoni and Genoa sausage. He uses
only extra virgin olive oil to ensure that his
signature pizza crust is crispy and baked to
perfection. So far, 11 specialty pizzas are
listed on the menu, along with house green
and baby spinach salads, and Comeau plans
to offer new pizza and salad choices on a
regular basis. For dessert lovers, homemade
ice-cream sandwiches are being offered in
addition to weekly specials.
"Everything in life prepares you for
something else" Comeau believes. While
living in the Boston area he rebuilt a
sailboat, worked as a builder, and owned a


sandwich cafe business before deciding to
relocate to Englewood.
"My wife Karen and I were searching
for a better quality of life where we could
raise our three boys in a smaller, waterfront
community," said Comeau, who true to his
beliefs has put his past experience to good
use. When he decided to open a gourmet
pizzeria he began searching for the perfect
wood with which to build a bar. He chose
Florida maple and laurel oak, that he
found in Lake Geneva, transported it to his
new business, and created a magnificent,
polished wooden bar and hand-hewn
benches. Several cozy booths, located
opposite the well stocked beer and wine
bar, provide comfortable seating for larger
groups.
"People like Glenn remember names,"
commented customer Jay Wetherill, who is
an ardent supporter of Englewood's small
independent businesses. "Customers are
impressed with Flatbread of Englewood's
friendly atmosphere and service. Some
restaurants advertise pizza specials, but
here you get specialty pizzas,"said Weth-
erill.


plaza. He believes that the best place to
operate a successful restaurant is next
to another restaurant. Competition,
according to Comeau, is a good thing as
it keeps businesses alert and up-to-date.
Allyson Mitchell, Comeau's niece, works as
a server, and Hunter Frey prepares pizza
and salads.
Customers who enjoy wine tasting will
be happy to learn that monthly wine tast-
ings will allow them to sample a variety of
wines from Italy, Spain, France, South Africa,
California and Oregon. All wines served
at Flatbread of Englewood pair well with
pizza, of course, and can be purchased by
the glass or the bottle. Bottled beer, Italian
spring water, Arnold Palmer (iced tea w/
lemonade), and soda are available as well.
Flatbread of Englewood is located at
1951 5. McCall Road, Englewood. Hours

Sailor Circus Holiday Spectacular


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
For it's 12th annual holiday show, the
Sarasota Sailor Circus is bringing to life one
of the most beloved Christmas stories of all
time-"The Polar Express."
The Sailor Circus, which is now managed
by Circus Sarasota, originated in 1949 as a
small high school gymnastics class. Since
then, it has grown into a youth training
program that specializes in the circus arts.
"We have about 115 students performing
from fourth through 12th grades,"said
Susan Loeffler, program director."We
started training in the beginning of
September."
Students practice about 20 hours a week,
and practice hours must be completed in
addition to fulfilling other school require-
ments and maintaining good grades. The
Holiday Spectacular provides the perfect
opportunity for the children to perform
in front ofa live audience and show off all
they have learned.
"I think the holiday show is fun because
they're bringing a wonderful story to life
through the circus arts," Loeffler said.
"They'll be performing aerial skills, high
wire, flying trapeze, juggling and more. It
will be great."
Anyone who has read "The Polar Express"
knows that one of the most special things
about the story is the train itself. Loeffler
said fans of the book will be very excited to
learn that the train makes an appearance at
this year's Sailor Circus holiday show.
"We have volunteers who actually made
the train-and it's 40 feet long,"she said.
"One of the highlights of the show this year


is when they open with an aerial display
and the performers are all dressed like train
conductors."
Loeffler also said that performing an
actual story is a lot of fun for the students,
because it gives them an opportunity to
take on a character and dance and act. One
especially fun part of the show will include
50 children dressed as elves and riding
around the arena on unicycles.
The Holiday Spectacularwill be
performed on six different days, with both
evening and matinee options available. If
you love the circus experience, you will get
it-from cotton candy and hot chocolate
to the free bag of popcorn you will receive
when you bring in a canned food item for
All Faiths Food Bank.
"This year we are planning a magical
holiday atmosphere," Loeffler said."The
students, coaches, volunteers, and all of us
here at Sailor Circus, are working hard to
bring you a holiday extravaganza filled with
all the wonder and amazement the circus
has to offer."

When: Dec. 27,28,29 and 30 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 29 and 30 at 2

By now, Charlotte County knows one of
the best places to spend New Year's Eve is
at Visani Comedy Dinner Theater. This year
is extra special as local favorites Cowboy
Bill Martin and Gid Pool perform for their
8th annual gala party.
Comedian Cowboy Bill Martin has been
busy these days adding other words to
describe his brand such as television
writer, songwriter, children's book author,
screenwriter, philanthropist and even
designer of his own clothing line. To say he
is busy is an understatement. He's been all
over the world as the headliner of his own
tour, a cruise-ship comedian and on good
will tours for soldiers in Afghanistan and
Iraq. One of his latest acts is, well, a hat
act but perhaps not in the way you're
thinking. Earlier this month, Martin and
his fiancee picked up a U-Haul, drove to
Garland, and loaded up nearly 300 hats
donated by Resistol and drove
them the nearly 2,000-mile
round trip to Camp COCO,
a summer camp for
boys and girls who have
cancer. This was part of
Martin's work with an jl
organization that he
founded, called Cowboys
Who Care Foundation, /*'
which provides cowboy
hats to children with cancer (
and other life-threatening
illnesses. JD Ryan, with CBS .
Radio, calls Martin's

By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Fishermen's Village in Punta Gorda is
known for its creative events, none more
popular than the annual celebration that
runs from 5 p.m. to midnight New Year's
Eve.
The waterfront mall's marketing
manager, Kathy Burnam, said, "We're
expecting strong attendance again this
year. It builds during the evening, and
we'll probably end up with a total of
several thousand."
The reason for the high attendance
at the New Year's celebration is simple:
the evening is designed to entertain the
whole family.
Burnam said,"It just has a great
family atmosphere, but you can feel
right at home if you're by yourself. All
the entertainment and other activities
are free. The restaurants will be open
until midnight, but the shops are closed.
It's not aimed at sales; it's designed to
celebrate the new year and give back to
the community."
The evening is capped off at
midnight not with a New York City-style
descending ball but a hand-carved
wooden dolphin with flashing lights,
befitting the waterfront location and the
dolphins often sighted near it.
Live music and dancing at Center
Court stage will feature singer/guitarist
Michael Hirst and Sounds of the Virgin


Islands band.
"Sounds of the Virgin Islands plays
music everybody likes," Burnam said.
"They do Cajun, tropical, reggae, top 40,
disco and dance music. They've been here
for the Fourth of July and New Year's.
They are very, very good."

IF YOU GO:
When: 5 p.m. until midnight, Dec. 31
Where: Fishermen's Village, 1200
W. Retta Esplanade, Punta Gorda
Park: limited parking around the
building is usually full; large lot and

Fun: free entertainment and music
for families, midnight New Year's
celebration, restaurants with special
deals
More info: www.fishville.com
If that's not enough to attract adults,
many of the restaurants have special
New Year's food and drink deals. See the
Fishermen's Village ad in this edition
of Let's Go for details. Reservations in
advance are recommended.
Children will have even more to keep
them busy. Free activities include face

Only 5 feet 2 inches tall, she towers to
8 feet 2 inches once strapped into her
stilts, and nobody loves working a crowd
more than she does.
Torrie, who prefers to use her perfor-
mance moniker, said, "I'm an atmosphere
performer. I get crowds going and pep
everybody up, mainly with balloon hats
and animals. When I'm around, the
cameras come out."
Stilt walking isn't an avocation most
people would think of as a career choice,
but Way Too Tall Torrie is anything but
average. She auditioned for an Orlando
entertainment company soon after she
and her husband moved there more
than a decade ago. A lifelong dancer, she
learned quickly and was stilt walking in
two weeks, loving every minute of it.
She said, "I worked for the company
several years and went all over the place,
from Major League Baseball all-star
games to Jimmy Buffet concerts."
A move to Fort Myers last year led
to a successful career as a for-hire stilt
walker.
"I wanted to work for myself," she said.
"I Googled Fort Myers and stilt walker,
and nobody came up. It just took off. In
season, I do three or four events a day
on weekends. It's a great stay-at-home
job for a mom. I can pick my jobs; I don't
have to take everything that comes my
way."
Her kids love her avocation as well. She
said of her 7-year-old, "I stilt walk at her
school, and she thinks I'm a rock star."
Like magicians, stilt walkers don't like
to give away trade secrets, one of the
reasons their legs are always covered
up while performing. Too Tall Torrie said
her aluminum and wood stilts look like
a longer and more sophisticated version
of dry wall stilts. Most stilt walkers use
generic versions; hers are custom made
with a metal piece on top specially fit to
her sneakers.
"Mine are very comfortable,"she said.
"I feel like I'm walking on my own two
legs but you still have to have incredibly
strong legs and good balance."
Torrie loves performing at the village,
and is still considering which of her
50 costumes to wear. She would only
promise something very festive and
appropriate for the weather, perhaps a
snow angel. Whatever her costume, you
and your family will enjoy her and the
other free activities to ring out the old
year.

As famous for her washboard comedy
act as for her vocals and piano styling,
Comora will be accompanied by Jim

singing such favorites as "Cry Me
a River"and "You Make Me Feel So
Young."
Switching styles and accompanists

FST offers boot-scootin'


new revue


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Florida Studio Theatre offers a
double opening Jan. 4.
Following two great shows ("Perfect
Wedding" and "Best of Enemies")
in the renovated Gompertz Theatre
comes a new honky-tonk music review
in the brand new 130-seat John C.
Court Cabaret Theatre.
The revue, "Urban Cowboy" created
by Rebecca Hopkins and FST's artistic
director, Richard Hopkins, is described
in a recent release as a "boot-scootin'
revue,' in which "the Wild West meets
the city."Think Mickey Gilley, Juice
Newton, Reba McEntire and Kenny
Rogers.
The two Hopkins have a knack for
putting together musical shows based
on various themes which usually serve
up a pleasant dose of musical educa-
tion along with entertainment.
The show's director is FST Russ Treyz
who has directed on FST's mainstage
("The Last Romance"and "Around
the World in 80 Days"). The musical
director is Brett Schrier who is based
in New York City. The cast includes


FST veteran performers Eric Scott
Anthony, Dominick Cicco, Sarah Jane
Mellen and Emily Mikesell with FST
newcomer, Connor Moore.
"Urban Cowboys" opens Jan. 4
and plays through March 20. Tickets
are $19-$36 and season tickets are
$29-$45. Enjoy dinner before the
show at FST's new Green Room Cafe
which is open only to ticket holders.
Make your dinner reservations when
you book your tickets as space is
limited and the lobster bisque is just
one of several reasons to check out
the menu which includes full dinners,
drinks, lighter fare and desserts.
FST's new Court Cabaret is at 1247
First St., Sarasota, one block north of
FST's Keating Mainstage and Gold-
stein Cabaret at 1241 N. Palm Ave.
For tickets to all FST productions in
its four distinct venues (Keating,
Goldstein, Gompertz and Court), visit

One look into the large, dark brown
eyes of the majestic giraffe will melt
your heart.
You can experience the awe and
wonder of this gentle giant at the
Brevard County Zoo, just a little more
than three hours across the state. Not
only will you get to meet the creatures
up close and personal from the high
level walkway in the park, but also, you
and your child can feed the giraffes.
Special crackers are sold for $1 for just
that reason, and little ones can be seen
extending the food as the giraffe reaches
out its tongue to gently grasp the tasty
morsel.
Meeting the giraffes is just one of
the special adventures awaiting at the
zoo, a hidden gem of the Space Coast,
according to Keith Winsten, executive
director.
"We have five loops visitors can travel
through,'Winsten said. "Explore Africa is
where you can feed the giraffes, and you
can feed lorikeets at the Australia loop.
At Wild Florida you'll see native wildlife,
like alligators and otters, and in the
LaSelva rainforest you'll find the jaguar
and South American monkees. Paws On
is a children's petting zoo, he said.
And for those who prefer a different
travel mode, people can kayak through
exhibits or take a train ride through
Africa.
Then there are the special adventures
one can experience, such as a Treetop
Trek aerial adventure, of which there are
three. Treetop Trek participants must
sign a waiver and must wear close-toed
athletic shoes.
Chutes and Ladders, for children 36
inches to 60 inches tall, costs $15 and
includes challenge games and two zip-
lines up to 9 feet. The course takes about
30 minutes and an adult must walk
alongside the course on the ground.
The Canopy Walk is an intermediate
course where those at least 54 inches tall
walk through the South American loop.
The cost is $25 each and takes about
45-60 minutes. Those age 12 and under


must have an adult accompany them.
The Treetop Challenge is for those at
least 54 inches tall who want a more
demanding course that includes aerial
challenges at heights up to 50 feet. The
course includes 12 zip-lines, including
a 700-foot ride across the wetlands and
a 500-foot ride over the alligator and
crocodile exhibits. The price is $48 for
the nearly three-hour challenge. Those
age 12 and under must be accompanied
by a participating adult.
Besides adventure, zoo administration
focuses on education and conservation.
"Our programs are based on devel-
opmental guidelines connecting
younger children with nature and
getting older students directly involved
in conservation action," Winsten said in
the zoo's fall 2012 newsletter. "On the
conservation side, we've found a unique
niche that takes advantage of our exper-
tise for caring for animals in the Florida
climate."
The zoo participates in fundraisers and
community outreach programs, such as
Running Zone, a group of racers that has
donated $34,000 to the zoo in six years,
and Dinosaurs Dead or Alive, which drew
160,000 visitors. In February, on Presi-
dent's Day weekend, the zoo will host
a special artist's exhibit, said Shelley
Szafraniec, marketing director.
You'll find Brevard Zoo at 8225 North
Wickham Road, Melbourne, 321-254-
9453. For more details, go to www.
brevardzoo.org.

Directions: Take 1-75 north to Exit
261 (1-4). Travel east on 1-4 to Exit 62
(S.R. 417, Southern Connector-toll
road). Continue east about 25 miles to
S.R. 528 (toll). Take S.R. 528 east to 1-95
South. Use Exit 183 for the Hilton Hotel,
3003 North Highway A1A, and Exit
191 (Wickham Road) for the Brevard
Zoo, 8225 North Wickham Road. A GPS
devise can be useful in the area.

Heron rPines is semi-private, offering both memberships an pay-as-you-go daily ees. Both
walkers and carts are permitted at all times of the day.
"It's an exciting, fun track to play, yet it's easy to walk it," said Bill Itschner, manager of the
course and surrounding community. An abundance of water throughout the course makes it
both challenging and beautiful. Maintaining the course's rustic, natural beauty is something -U
Itschner has worked hard to achieve.
Like other area courses, Blue Heron Pines was hit hard by Hurricane Charley in 2004. But
unlike other courses that had all the damaged trees removed, Itschner insisted on keeping the
bent and downed trees that were still living.
D B I GThe result is a course with trees that are natural wonders in their own right. Some are so bent
you can't help but know which way the hurricane blew. Others stretch across the ground,
determined trees with winding trunks exploding into robust foliage.
Purple jacarandas surround creeks and ravines, while several stone formations add to the
.. .eclectic mix.
IN.ll Blue Heron Pines sits in the midst of a community by the same name. The original, nine-hole
course was called Emu Lakes, and the community Casa del Mar. While many courses have
alligators on their grounds, Emu Lakes actually had emus.
Thirteen years ago, American Land Lease bought the community and golf course, renamed it,
and added the front nine holes. Three greens have been rebuilt since Hurricane Charley hit,
and two more will be rebuilt this year. .A th
"It's an ongoing process that will continue until all the greens have been rebuilt," said A Sen o
Itschner.
II The clubhouse was also rebuilt and expanded to 9,000 square feet, with a commercial kitchen,
H H deck, game rooms and meeting rooms added around the original center clubhouse. In
addition to the golf course, the community includes shuffleboard, horse shoes and an aqua
driving range that utilizes floater golf balls. Lessons are also available.
Blue Heron Pines golf course is located at 29225 S. Jones Loop Road in Punta Gorda. For
information or tee times call 941-637-6191.

LIVE MUSIC G O


Multi-talented duo entertains


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
"Chakulla and Me', musicians and
vocalists, perform folk, world, jazz, Ameri-
cana and island music.'Meaka Karyn
Sylak, prefers the object pronoun because
she likes to make up weird names like
"She-She Divine'and"Abigailabstractly"
when performing.
"Me is a hoot,"Chakulla said jokingly.
"When I introduce her, I'm as surprised as
the audience at what persona she'll come
up with. Besides being a talented singer
and musician, she's a natural comedian."
The duo is the epitome of multi-tasking.
Chakulla sings and plays guitar or bass
while on percussion. Meanwhile, his
musical partnersings and switches from
one percussion instrument to the next.
The result is a sound that is big and rich.
They claim that while many bands rely
on back tracks and tape recorders, they
skip the fake stuff. Other instruments
include pedal steel, marimba, drums and
keyboard.
"If someone hands me an instrument
I haven't played before, I'll make some
music on it,"Chakulla said.
Karyn claims,"It's wonderful
performing with Chakullah. There's total
musical freedom, and lots of improvising."
Audiences enjoy the duo's dynamic
chemistry and natural wit. "Share a smile,
get out of your house, enjoy life, kick up
your heels" is their mantra.
One avid fan noted, "And their music is
sexy. The mellow funk beat and smooth
major undertones entice fingertips to


'90s. After a performance one night, the
audience began cheering"Chakulla."Sid
Bernstein, concert promoter, told Smith,
"Change your name to Chakulla because
that's who you are."
Chakulla invites various groups to
attend the duo's concerts held monthly
from October to April at"The Happy Place"
at his home in Punta Gorda. Attendees are
asked to bring nonperishable food items
that are donated to local food pantries,
and a $10 donation to benefit the
American Disabled Veterans, Toys for Tots,
Hospice, and Harry Chapin Food Bank.
"We've had 50 to 200 good and
generous people who come together to
meet other good and generous people.
They bring their chairs, beverages, and a
dish to share,"Chakullah said."All of them
care about helping people in need, and
having fun at the same time."
Together for four years, the duo met
while performing with the "Cheeky
Monkey"band.
They have played as street musicians
and at major concert venues in various
places in the United States. Locally, they
have performed at Boca Grill and Tiki
Bar in Boca Grande, IslesYacht Club in
Punta Gorda, and at many Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce events that help
the community.
Recently, Chakulla and Me released
a CD titled, "Live in the Happy Place,"
that includes songs "Set Yourself Free"'
Remember When,"and "Walking Up the
Isle"among others.
The CD's attractive cover was painted by
artist Charles Peck who painted murals on
various Punta Gorda buildings.

Little Drummer Boys
If you've never been to Englewood Beach, Nokomis Beach, Siesta Key or
others that have ongoing drum circles, then you've missed a terrific experience.
The hypnotic, rhythmic, sometimes spontaneous power of drumming can be
addicting. In rock and pop, legendary drummers such as Buddy Rich, session man
Hal Blaine, Sandy Nelson ("Let There Be Drums"), Ron Wilson ("Wipeout") and
others set the standard for exceptional drummers in great bands. Among the
many: The Beatles' Ringo Starr, Keith Moon of The Who, Cream's Ginger Baker, Phil
Collins of Genesis, Neil Peart of Rush, Led Zeppelin's John Bonham, Mitch Mitchell
of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Carl Palmer of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The
Rolling Stones' Charlie Watts, Bill Bruford of both Yes and King Crimson, Stewart
Copeland of the Police, Deep Purple's lan Paice, Mike Shrieve of Santana, Nirvana's
Dave Grohl, Roger Taylor of Queen, Steve Smith of Journey and Jeff Porcaro of
Toto. And let's not forget a few memorable lady drummers: Gina Schock of the
Go-Go's, Karen Carpenter of The Carpenters and Maureen "Moe"Tucker of Velvet
Underground.

and what is the name of the album?

Ifyou think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than
noon this Friday, and we'll publish your name as the winner with the correct answer
in next week's issue ofLet's Go! Please include your name and city.

Opening lead: Four of 0

Against South's four spades, West
leads the four of diamonds. Declarer
can count nine tricks. Where should


he look for the fulfilling trick?
One way would be to play to ruff a
heart in dummy. However, that
would involve not drawing trumps
until after the ruff and he might fall
victim to having one of his diamond
winners ruffed away. Alternatively,
declarer could play to establish the
table's long clubs, but he might ruff
himself out of trumps in the attempt.
There is a simple but logical
deduction that can be made from the
opening lead West does not hold
both the ace and king of hearts. If he
did, a high heart would have been
led. Therefore, declarer wins the
diamond in dummy and leads a heart.
That might result in his setting up a
heart winner by force, or by getting to
ruff a heart on the table. Either way,
that would be his tenth trick!

DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: My 19-year-
old was diagnosed with
Raynaud's disease.
Because of her age, they
have not prescribed
anything for this. At pres-
ent, she gets cold hands
and feet that turn colors,
and she finds it too cold
to go swimming. She also
is always tired.
Can you tell me a bit
more about this, and why
she would get so tired?
Would you prescribe
something for this at her
age? D.C.
ANSWER: Raynaud's
phenomenon is a com-
mon condition where
blood vessels have an
exaggerated response to
cold and sometimes to
stress. The hands or toes
turn color (white and/or
blue) with cold, and then
red upon rewarming.
Raynaud's phenomenon
can happen by itself, with
no associated condition.
When this happens, we
call it primary Raynaud's
phenomenon, or it
may be associated with
other conditions such as
autoimmune diseases
like scleroderma, lupus or
Sjogrens.
The diagnosis sounds
correct, but you've raised
two concerns. The first is
whether she should have
medication for her condi-
tion, and the second is
should the tiredness
cause you or her concern.
Deciding to treat with
medications depends on
how well non-medication
treatment is working.
Avoiding cold, dressing
warmly and using mittens
or electric hand warmers
are critical. But if she
is still having frequent
episodes despite these
measures, I would indeed
consider prescribing a
medicine, like nifedipine
(Procardia or Adalat).
The second concern is
her fatigue, and although
this is very nonspecific
in a 19-year-old, I would
make sure she has been
carefully evaluated
for other causes, such
as lupus and related
disease, thyroid disease
and abnormal cold-
sensitive proteins such
as cryoglobulins. It may
be advisable for her to
consult with an expert,
such as a rheumatologist.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: I had
my first-ever summer
cold, which caused viral
meningitis. For seven
days I was in excruciating
pain in the neck, shoul-
ders and upper back. I
was hospitalized for three
days. I was treated with
oon


Drs. Donohue and Roach


Readers may write Dr. Donohue
and Dr. Roach at P.O. Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-6475

antibiotics and many
pain-relief medications,
including oxycodone and
morphine. Kindly explain
why viral meningitis
causes such excruciating
pain, like no other! G.B.
ANSWER: Meningitis
is an infection of the
meninges, the lining of
the spinal cord and brain.
It can be caused by either
viruses or bacteria.
Bacterial meningitis is
one of the most impor-
tant emergencies that we
see in medicine, one in
which even a half-hour's
delay in antibiotics can
mean the difference
between life and death.
Viral meningitis initially
can look very similar to
bacterial, and often is
treated with antibiotics
until the results of the
spinal tap are known. The
difference usually can
be told then. Antibiotics
are lifesaving in bacte-
rial meningitis, but most
cases of viral meningitis
get better without specific
treatment. Fever, back
pain and/or "the worst
headache of your life" are
suspicious for meningitis
and ought to be brought
to medical attention
immediately.
The brain has no pain
sensation itself; however,
the meninges that line
it have abundant pain
fibers. In most people,
these pain fibers never
send a message, but in
the case of meningeal
inflammation, the pain
message is intense and
unmistakable. Perhaps
this is why the pain is so
memorable.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: I take
Plavix. I went to a new
dentist for my gum treat-
ment and bled heavily.
I came home sick from
so much bleeding. I
called my doctor, and he
said that the next time I
should not take Plavix the
day before I go. Is one day
sufficient? E.L.
ANSWER: Plavix lasts
about eight hours in the
body, so 90 percent of it is
gone within 24 hours.
One day should be
enough. Careful brushing
and especially flossing
can make your visits to
the dentist less traumatic.

Adding spice to pumpkin pie


Dear Heloise: I read
your column every day
in the (Rochester, Minn.)
Post-Bulletin. I know
you printed a recipe for
pumpkin pie spice, but I
lost it. Could you please
reprint it? Anna E in
Minnesota
This is a good recipe to
have during the holidays,
because it makes enough
spice for one pumpkin
pie. Feel free to double or
triple it if making more
than one pie. Gather the
following ingredients:
1 teaspoon ground
cinnamon
/4 teaspoon ground
ginger
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/ teaspoon nutmeg
Store the spice blend
in a labeled container
until ready to use. I like
to make my own spice
mixes at home, which is
why I created my Heloise's
Seasonings, Sauces and
Substitutes pamphlet. To
receive a copy, send $3
and a long, self-addressed,
stamped (65 cents) enve-
lope to: Heloise/SSS, P.O.
Box 795001, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5001. Need just
a touch of milk, but have
none on hand? Mix some
water and coffee creamer
together. Heloise

Dry milk
Dear Heloise: I live
alone and sometimes
have a problem of wasting
food due to having to pur-
chase more than I need
because of packaging.
Cereal is the only thing
I need low-fat milk for,


Hints from Heloise

but I can use only a cup
or so out of a quart, with
the rest going bad after
a while. I got a small box
of dry milk, and I make 1
cup, which is sufficient for
the cereal. I don't know if
all brands use the same
ratio, but I use heaping 1/4
cup dry milk to 1 cup cold
water and stir well! -
Dena in Silver Spring, Md.

Easy pour
Dear Heloise: I always
liked the syrup dispenser
with a spring-loaded lever
found on the table at my
favorite breakfast res-
taurant. I was so excited
when I saw a couple for
sale at a garage sale! I,
of course, keep syrup in
one, but I have milk in
the other to add to my
morning coffee! Betty
G. in New Jersey
I love these dispens-
ers, too! I bought one in
a thrift store, and I keep
milk or creamer in it for
my coffee, just like you
do. It is so convenient!
If you can't find one in a
thrift store, garage sale or
specialty kitchen store,
go online to buy one.

Wife has a few choice words

on man's love for sexy lips


DEAR ABBY: Please help
save my marriage. My wife
of five years discovered an
Internet browser history of
13 Web pages I had clicked
on the previous day. The
pages were of women's
sexy lips. My wife is calling
it "porn" and a "gateway to
porn." I feel guilty about
it, but I told her it isn't
pornography. I think it's a
fetish. She says I'm using
that word to get off the
hook.
Will you please tell her
that this probably is a
fetish? Our sex life has not
been the same since she
discovered the images on
the computer. What can
we do about it in a way
that will strengthen our
marriage? NOT GUILTY
AS CHARGED
DEAR NOT GUILTY:
It's a shame you and your
wife hadn't discussed what
turns you on before she
checked your browser his-
tory. A fetish is any object
that turns someone on,
and it can range from large
breasts, to stiletto heels, to
leather or rubber items of
clothing, to full red lips. It
is not pornography.
A way to strengthen your
marriage would be for you
to buy her a tube of bright
red lipstick. And a way for
her to improve your sex life
would be to put it on.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a
13-year-old girl with a
sister and a brother. I was
recently told by my dad
that I have to teach my
brother how to read, but
the problem is he has a
learning disability and a
behavior disorder. I don't
know how I'm supposed to
teach him to read, and it
scares me.
On top of that, my dad
got mad at my sister and
me and said that when
we were younger we were
just like my brother, only
worse. He said he was
close to giving up on us.
Sometimes Dad says we're
worthless, stupid and asks
why we're even in this
world. He says we're not
good for anything.
I have a slight form of

Dear Abby

doing certain things other
kids do at my age. I feel
like I'll never be as smart
as anyone else, and I have
no clue how I'm going to
teach my disabled brother
to read. Help! LOST,
ALONE AND WORRIED IN
URBANA, ILL.
DEAR LOST: It would
be wonderful if you could
teach your learning dis-
abled brother how to read,
but you are not equipped
to do that. Your brother
should be in a special edu-
cation class with a teacher
who has the specialized
training and, possibly,
a tutor.
Sometimes, when
parents are extremely
stressed or angry they can
say things they don't mean
without thinking of the
lasting effect their words
can have on a child. You
are neither worthless nor
stupid. You are an intel-
ligent girl. Frankly, your
father appears to be in
need of some help, and I
hope you will share with a
counselor at your school
what you have told me.

the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise
first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet
the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the
Lord."- 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17

making. We shall meet again never to part. He has
made it possible. "Even so come Lord Jesus."
