Doggie dining is
spreading to downtown
Venice, following the
success of Mi Pueblo El
Restaurant Mexicano
& Cantina on South
U.S. 41 Bypass, which
several months ago
received the first
special city permit
to allow guests to be


accompanied by their
pets when dining
outdoors.
TJ Carney's Pub &
Grille, 231 W. Venice Ave.,
has also introduced the
service.
"Customers asked
frequently when dining
here if their pets could sit
alongside, so we applied,
then introduced the
necessary facilities and
received our permit," said


hostess Barbara Isaacson.
"It is a delight to see regu-
lar customers bringing
their well-mannered dogs
to our outside seating
service."
Kay Kropac, owner of
Caf6 Venice, 116W. Venice
Ave., said she has also
received a permit for din-
ers on her patio to enjoy
a meal accompanied by
their pets.
Roger Clark, city of


Venice planner and dog-
gie dining permit officer,
confirmed those are the
only three restaurants to
have received permits
since the permitting was
approved in July.
"We have received
inquiries from others and
given out applications,
but nobody (else) has
submitted so far," he said.

Hog hunt program is under way


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
A controversial hunting
program aimed at reduc-
ing the abundant feral hog
population that's destroy-
ing vegetation and other
wildlife in Deer Prairie
Creek Preserve and the
adjacent Schewe tract got
under way Tuesday near
North Port.
The three-day hunt


is one of several pilot
projects around the
state sanctioned by the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District.
Sarasota County jointly
owns the 6,440-acre Deer
Prairie Creek Preserve,
adjacent to North Port,
with the water district. The
nearby 1,722-acre Schewe
tract is owned solely by
the district. The hunts will
be held on the properties


from sundown to 2 a.m.
through Thursday.
According to the district,
there is no "bag limit" on
the number of feral hogs
that can be harvested.
Hunters will be allowed
to use knives, dogs and
guns to kill the hogs.
District spokeswoman
Robyn Felix said the 30
permits available for this
week's hunt at $75
apiece were sold out


the day they went on sale.
Hunters are allowed to
bring two "assistants" with
each permit, bringing the
total number of hunters
and assistants that will
be tracking hogs to 90.
Hunters can also use as
many as three dogs at any
given time.
"It's a very popular
recreational opportunity

VRMC gets


standing

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
In a split decision Tuesday, Venice City
Council agreed to allowVenice Regional
Medical Center to intervene in a site and de-
velopment petition submitted by the Sarasota
County Hospital Board, which oversees
Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Voting in favor were Mayor John Holic, Bob
Daniels, Emilio Carlesimo and Jeanette Gates.
The decision paves the way for Venice
Regional to appeal a site plan submitted by
the hospital board and approved by the city's
planning commission earlier this summer.
Council will discuss the substantive issues
involved in the appeal at a future meeting.
Venice Regional objected to the site plan for
a medical campus on Laurel Road in North
Venice saying the zoning is incompatible with
the current comprehensive plan. In a nut-
shell, Venice Regional's attorney, Jeff Boone,
said it was trying to shoehorn a medical
campus into an approved zoning designation
for a grocery store.

Venice land use attorney Jeff Boone succeeded in
getting intervenor status for Venice Regional HMA
yesterday, paving the way to appeal a planning
commission decision on behalf of the local hospital.


Venice seeks to strengthen ties to North Port


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
City leaders in Venice
agreed Tuesday it's time
for a joint meeting with
the North Port City
Commission.
Venice Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo raised
the issue, saying the
relationship between the


two munici-
palities is a
special one
and "shared
attributes,
opportuni-
ties and
challenges"
CARLESIMO warrant
at least an
annual meeting.
"We have cooperated


and collabo-
rated on
issues in the
past and I
~1 believe that
now, more
than ever,
we have
HOLIC an oppor-
tunity to
strengthen that spirit of
cooperation through an


even more formalized
alliance," Carlesimo said.
"Our collective voice car-
ries further in our pursuit
towards (a better) qual-
ity of life here in South
County."
"I speak from firsthand
experience when I say it's
nice to have good friends
and good neighbors
when you're trying to do


the right things for your
community."
Carlesimo said he's
already spoken with four
of the five North Port
commissioners about the
chance to share ideas.
"Their reception to the
idea was very encourag-
ing," Carlesimo said.
He pointed to last year's
discussion about where


to build a second jail,
and ongoing talks over
new hospital facilities in
the area, as examples of
issues of mutual interest.
"It was made quite
clear by residents on
Laurel Road they didn't
want the jail, whereas
North Port wanted it and

Area foreclosure numbers dip


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

November foreclosure num-
bers for Sarasota and Charlotte
counties mean different things
to different people.
Depending on who's reading
the tea leaves, the region either
is primed for a major comeback,
or banks and federal lending
policies still have a strangle-
hold on the average working
Floridian, who is barely keeping
his head above water.
Either way, there were 155 fore-
closures filed in Charlotte County
in November, a decrease from the
216 filings in October, according
to the Charlotte County Clerk of
Courts office. Both months were
ahead of the same time frame in
2011, when there were 162 fore-
closure filings for October, and
131 for November.
In Sarasota, there were 370
foreclosure filings for November,
a decrease from the 405
foreclosure filings in October,
Sarasota Clerk of Courts re-
cords show. Year over year, the
numbers were nearly identical,
as 390 foreclosures were filed
in October 2011, and 338 in
November of last year.
What do the numbers mean?
Well, not a lot, according to
David Hicks, a foreclosure
attorney with offices in Sarasota
and other parts of the state, who


said 900,000 Floridians are cur-
rently 90 days behind on their
mortgages or are already in the
early stages of the foreclosure
process.
Declining foreclosure numbers
don't mean the crisis is over, Hicks
said. Instead, they represent a lull
for certain counties, while others
are still experiencing numbers
closer to those when the entire
nation was rocked by record
foreclosure figures.
Failed loan-modification
programs are another issue, he
said, as the federal government
continues to protect the interests
of lending institutions above the
interests of working Americans.
"The lip service of the politi-
cians and the banks just isn't
true. The stumbling blocks still
exist," he said.
Bob "Fig" Newton, presi-
dent of the Punta Gorda-Port
Charlotte-North Port Association
of Realtors, takes a different ap-
proach to the numbers. He feels
they represent a signpost on the
region's road to recovery.
Newton predicts that
December's numbers will
decrease yet again from
November, but the first quarter
of the year will see a "slight
uptick" as lenders and courts
will have finalized end-of-the-
year foreclosures.
But Newton also thinks lend-
ers are approaching foreclosures


....CORRECTION: The Florida Highway Patrol issued 19 traffic citations related to the
53-vehicle pileup Oct. 5 on Interstate 75 near the Sarasota-Manatee county line. A story in
Saturday's paper included an incorrect number of citations from an FHP press release.

with a different attitude and are
trying harder to keep people in
their homes while they work
through those issues.
"All indications are promis-
ing," Newton said.
If the foreclosure crisis ever
really does fade away, then it
will be because the state as
well as the region is provid-
ing high-skilled, high-wage job
opportunities for current and
potential residents, according to
Frank Bove, an economics pro-
fessor at Edison State College.
The national unemployment
rate currently sits at 7.7 percent,
according to figures released
Friday by the federal government.
And in Florida, the unemploy-
ment rate sits at 8.5 percent,
based on figures released in
November. Charlotte currently
has an unemployment rate of
8.5 percent, while Sarasota
has an unemployment rate of
8.3 percent.
Bove fears the last five years
have created a "new normal" of
foreclosure culture, one that will
be with us for a long time unless
people have money to stay in
their homes or snatch up the
many properties that one day
will be bank-owned.
"It's something that's going to
be with us for a long time," he
said. "Foreclosures aren't going
away."

Preserving service taxes a priority for county, North Port


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

County and city of
North Port representatives
presented their legislative
priorities to the Sarasota
County Legislative
Delegation Monday. Tops
on the list: protecting
revenue streams and
home rule.
Both the county and
the city staunchly op-
pose any legislation that
would change either
the local business tax
or the communication
services tax. Local business
tax revenue is generated
by a local government


licensing a business,
profession or occupation.
County Commission
Chair Christine Robinson
said the county uses that
revenue solely to fund the
Sarasota County Economic
Development Corporation.
The communication
services tax applies to
telecommunications, video,
direct-to-home satellite and
related services. The tax is
composed of a state and a
local component. Robinson
said the state Legislature is
looking at ways to restruc-
ture the tax, which could
cost the county more than
$10 million in lost revenue
if it is eliminated.


North Port City
Commissioner Tom Jones
told the delegation that both
taxes pay for the city's key
services, including police,
a portion of Fire Rescue,
Social Services, Parks and
Recreation and administra-
tion. The funding is used
to offset the direct cost to
taxpayers by providing an
alternative source of rev-
enue, and a decrease in or
the elimination of the funds
would have a severe impact
on North Ports services.
The delegation, which
included state Sen. Nancy
Detert, R-Venice, and state
representatives Ray Pilon,
R-Sarasota, Doug Holder,


R-Sarasota, Darryl Rouson,
D-St. Petersburg, Jim Boyd,
R-Bradenton, and Greg
Steube, R-Bradenton,
seemed split on the matter
of restructuring or eliminat-
ing the taxes in the upcom-
ing legislative session.
Detert, who is chair of the
Commerce and Tourism
Committee, said she was in
favor of total tax reform.
"It really hasn't worked
out for us and we see a lot
of wasted money, so we're
going to do things a lot dif-
ferent," she said. "I expect a
lot of innovation and a lot
of energy in each and every
committee. Under our new
Senate leadership, I think


we're going to see five years
of progress in one year."
Pilon, who has a small
planning and strategy
business in Sarasota, was
in favor of allowing the two
taxes to continue.
"I've always maintained a
strong position that I think
this is something that is left
to the locals to decide," he
said. "The local business tax
and the communication
service tax are something I
agree with the counties and
cities on."
Protecting home rule was
the other mutual priority.
Both support measures
that would prevent the
cost of programs shifting to


local governments without
a funding source and
any pre-emption of local
ordinances.
"As a former county com-
missioner, I'm very in tune
to that, but it's oftentimes a
tough balance," Pilon said.
"I don't see any real issues
this year ... yet, but I'll be
real vigilant on them. We
have always had to take
the overriding good of the
entire citizens based on
the ability to home-rule
government. Unless some-
thing is an overriding issue
that is going to affect the
entire state, I'm very happy
to support home rule."

Keyway Place moving ahead over objections


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

Christine "Chris"
Garrison was disap-
pointed after the Sarasota
County Planning
Commission gave its
unanimous recommenda-
tion Thursday for Neal
Communities' proposed
Keyway Place project.
"It was a slam dunk,"
Garrison said after the
decision.
Lakewood Ranch
developer Patrick Neal
is asking for a planned-
unit-development zoning
change that would allow
up to 5.5 residential units
per acre to be built on
nearly 30 acres south of
Stoner Road and north
of Keyway Road on
State Road 776 in North


Englewood. The property
now is zoned open-use
estate with one residen-
tial structure allowed per
5 acres.
Neal Communities could
build up to 75 homes, but
a conceptual site plan
shows only 67 homes.
Neal said at Thursday
night's public hearing at
the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center in
Venice that he intends to
build moderately priced
homes, between $130,000
and $140,000. Five acres
of the property, outside
the existing urban service
area, will be preserved as a
passive recreation area.
Several planning com-
mission members praised
Neal, saying he is a premier
developer and the results of
his project may pleasantly


surprise neighboring prop-
erty owners, but Garrison,
a Keyway Road resident,
several of her neighbors
and Stoner Road residents
were not convinced.
Among his concerns,
said Englewood attorney
and Keyway Road resident
R. EarlWarren, is the
impact on traffic on State
Road 776.
"There is no provision
for traffic-signal controls
at either Keyway Road
or Stoner Road, nor does
the parcel presently show
access to either road,"
Warren wrote in a letter
to planning commission
members. "The expected
volume of traffic from this
new development will ex-
cessively burden this state
highway and unreasonably
congest the flow of traffic


with the posted speed limit
of45 mph."
The Keyway Place project
has one egress onto State
Road 776 and will not have
access to either Keyway or
Stoner roads. According to
county planners, the ad-
ditional traffic should have
a very minimal effect on
the state road's capacity.
A site plan for a PUD is
"binding," said Kirk Crane,
a Sarasota County senior
planner. Even if Neal
Communities purchased
additional property adja-
cent to the Keyway Place
development and with
access to either Keyway or
Stoner roads, Crane said,
that would not automati-
cally give the development
access to those roads. Neal
Communities would have
to go through the entire


process again to garner a
zoning amendment to the
PUD, Crane said.
The residents also are
worried about a conflict
between the develop-
ment and their semi-rural
lifestyles.
The perimeter of the
entire development, Neal
said, will be buffered.
The Sarasota County


Commission makes the
final decision on the
project. The rezoning
request is expected to go
before county commis-
sioners at their Jan. 29,
2013, meeting, scheduled
for 9 a.m. at the Anderson
Administration Center,
4000 South Tamiami Trail,
SouthVenice.

STANDING
FROM PAGE 1
He said the entire
matter could be cleared
up quickly and relatively
inexpensively if the prop-
erty were simply rezoned
into a more appropriate
designation.
That could be costly,
though, if construction is
delayed even longer.
Council members
were repeatedly cau-
tioned by City Attorney
Bob Anderson to
base their decision
on whether to grant
intervenor status using
the standards laid out
in the landmark 1972
Renard case, and not
on the merits of the site
and development plan


in question.
"Just because you
would grant standing
doesn't mean you are
obligated to say Venice
Regional was correct"
in its appeal, Boone
said.
After a closer reading
of the Renard decision,
council appeared to
be swayed by Boone's
argument that its four
standards to determine
intervenor status left
some wiggle room.
The standards must be
considered, but "are not
written in stone," Boone
said.
Hospital board's at-
torney Charles Bailey, of
the Williams Parker firm,
argued the standards are
straightforward.
"Legally, the city is
obligated to deny the


case to appeal," Bailey
said. Venice Regional
didn't meet any of the
standards, he said.
Bailey said part of
Venice Regional's ratio-
nale that it's a compet-
itor was shot down by
the courts long ago, and
warned of "unintended
consequences" and
"opening Pandora's box."
"If council says Venice
Regional has standing,
what you are doing is
inconsistent with state
law," Bailey said.
"You are saying, hey,
you know what, there's
a Wells Fargo Bank
(over) here ... There
might be a bank out
(there). I don't want
competition. (So I'll
appeal.) How about a
restaurant or a phar-
macy ... ? Are you going


to give them standing?"
Boone said it wasn't
about competition, but
about fairness.
"The city is allowing
Sarasota Memorial to
not follow the same rules
(as other petitioners),"
Boone said. "Venice
Regional expects equal
treatment."
The site and develop-
ment plan is "noncom-
pliant for uses, not in
compliance with prean-
nexation (agreement)
and not in compliance
with the Venetian (ar-
chitectural) standards,"
he said. It was zoned
for a big-box store, not
a medical campus, he
said.

Missing pages
And then came the


equivalent of a court-
room shocker. Council
took notice when
Boone pointed out that
almost two entire pages
of the zoning code are
missing in the pub-
lished ordinance key
pages in defense of its
appeal.
City staff admitted it
was an error.
Boone said the
missing pages were
pertinent because the
planning commission
adopted the site and
development plan with
the understanding it
wasn't binding, and that
future changes in the
plan could be autho-
rized by the commission
or council. But under
the current code, as
published, it is binding
- due to the missing


pages.
When Planning
Administrator Chad
Minor was asked if it
would have made a
difference in the plan-
ning commission's
consideration of the site
and development plan,
he responded, "I believe
it may have made a
difference."
"While not intention-
ally, it was pursued under
erroneous zoning code,"
Boone said. "These were
illegal acts. Not the kind
that are a crime. But
nevertheless, this was an
act contrary to the law of
the city."
Attorneys represent-
ing SMH indicated they
would appeal council's
ruling in court.

Daiquiri Deck nears its debut


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"This store in Venice
will be the model of
Daiquiri Deck Raw Bars
we open in the future,"
said Troy Syprett, com-
pany president.
The target opening
date, assuming contrac-
tors can stay on schedule,
will be around Christmas.
With a Caribbean/
Florida cuisine, it will be a
Florida dining experience
for the whole family.
"In today's world, when
people go out to eat
they like to have some
kind of entertainment,"
said Syprett, "not only
live music, but to watch
football games, sporting
events. Each of the televi-
sions is independently
programmable, so for a
family with young kids
we could, if they want,
put on a kid's station like
the Disney channel."
Twenty years ago,
when Syprett opened the


first Daiquiri Deck on
Siesta Key, it was much
more a bar business.
Now, as the owners have
aged, it has evolved into
a family restaurant.
"A very important
aspect of our business is
recognizing that some-
one who is 65 today is
like a person who was 45,
20 years ago," he said.
So they make sure
to offer their patrons a
casual place in which to
relax, have a drink and
enjoy a meal.
The outside patios
seat 150 diners at tables
with umbrellas, a feature
of this new Daiquiri
Deck design. Facing
West Venice Avenue and
Nassau Street, each patio
seats 75 diners and can
be opened to the main
dining room.
A private party/ban-
quet/business meeting
room with 40 seats,
fully equipped with video
presentation equipment,
can be coordinated with


the patio room facing
Nassau Street for larger
groups.
Entering the Daiquiri
Deck from West Venice
Avenue, your first visual
will be a bank of 12 dai-
quiri machines at the
long, colorful, terrazzo-
topped bar with 30 bar
stools. A vibrant, lively,
colorful, inviting and fun
atmosphere is a feature
of all the interior dining
rooms. Tables seating
a total of 60 people are
configured so they can
be changed for parties
and groups. Sliding
window-doors can be
folded concertina-style
to the walls, opening the
dining area to the patio.
Entering the restaurant
from the side door on
Nassau Street will put
you at the raw bar, the
trademark for these
restaurants. Chefs will
be preparing oysters,
clams, mussels, fish and
crab legs, which will be
displayed in a showcase


counter. Ten diners can
sit around the bar enjoy-
ing items from the full
restaurant menu while
watching the chefs.
"We have a very large,
diversified menu of fresh
seafood and fish, chicken
dishes, steak, pasta,
sandwiches and wraps,
and two breakfast items,"
said Syprett. "What
makes us distinct from
other restaurants is our
raw bar."
Happy hour entertain-
ment between 3 and 7
p.m. daily will feature
a solo musician with a
guitar. On the weekend,
bands or DJs will play
Jimmy Buffett-style mu-
sic on the front patios.
Partnering with
local businesses, they
plan special holiday
promotions, including
"Safe Treats Night" for
Halloween and day after
Christmas fun.
Initially, the restaurant
will be open from 10 a.m.
to 2 a.m. seven days a

from 3 to 7 p.m., when
there will be two-for-one
daiquiris, wine and well
drinks and discounted
beers. They have not of-
fered early-bird specials
but may do so for this
market. They will em-
ployee 80 to 100 people.
As president, Syprett
oversees the company.

became a partner six
months after the original
Daiquiri Deck opened,

catering and daily opera-
tions. Sixteen years ago
Matthew Grover, vice
president of operations,
joined the company; 10
years later he became a
partner.
Each restaurant has
a general manager and
front-of-the-house, bar
and kitchen managers. A
group corporate chef is
responsible for the menu
design and ensuring the
products are consistent.

Taking a leap



into the fun business


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Opening in January
is Leaping Lizards, 4411
South Tamiami Trail, in
the former Basketville lo-
cation. The 14,500-square-
foot property is being
completely renovated by
owner Mariah Wozniak
to become an entertain-
ment center for kids from
toddlers to teenagers.
In this $175,000 indoor
playground all the equip-
ment is inflatable, not
trampolines. There is a
concession area, and the
building will be moni-
tored by security cameras.
The hall holds a maxi-
mum of 275 occupants.
Entry will be via the
doors on the north side, to
an admissions desk. Gum
is not allowed inside, so
there will be a gum tree
on the wall where kids
will be making a big gum
monument.
The first activity is a big,
darkened, inflatable laser
tag maze with black lights
and a fog machine. Two
teams of six will compete
in timed games of laser
tag, sneaking around the

turtles, and there's a
nursing room for mothers
with babies. Older kids can
challenge the 40-foot long
obstacle course in the large
caterpillar tunnel, while for
toddlers there are a turtle
slide and a bouncy fun city.
Other attractions include
a 20-foot-high twist slide, a
long double zipline and an
enormous gator slide.
Arcade games for older
kids are near the conces-
sion stand, where pizza is


available to order. For par-
ties it will be ordered in.
Using a turbo oven, staff
will cook chicken nug-
gets, french fries, nachos
with cheese and hot dogs.
Drinks will include sodas,
slushies, coffee and hot
cocoa. There will be no
alcohol or smoking in the
hall.
Around the concession
stand are picnic tables,
some with swivel-out bench
seats, and narrow benches
for parents to relax. There
are televisions and couches
so dads can watch football
while the kids play.
There are three birthday


party rooms, each holding
around 25 youngsters.
Birthday kids receive an "I
was leaping at the Lizard for
my birthday" T-shirt, and
can put a handprint on the
wall and have their photo-
graph taken on an inflatable
birthday party throne.
The lizard is going to be-
come very well known in
this area as employees will
stand outside in costume
waving to passing traffic.
Security cameras around
the hall will continu-
ously monitor children.
However, parents must
remain on-site as Wozniak


will not be staffed to
babysit.
"First and foremost, all
children will be their par-
ent's responsibility," said
Wozniak. "We are here
to act as aides, a friend
to accompany them on
apparatus and to interfere
if children appear to be
crossing each other."
Wozniak is starting out
with 12 part-time employ-
ees, mostly teenagers, to
work on the floor interact-
ing with smaller children
and escorting them on
slides and in tunnels.
A Navy brat from


Oklahoma, Wozniak has
lived in Venice since 1989.
She and her husband are
real estate investors with
rental homes in Nokomis.
She worked a week in her
sister's Leaping Lizards in
Kingsport, Tenn., to get a
feel for how it runs.
The center will be open
from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Monday through Saturday
and 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday.
Admission is $5 for kids
from crawling to 3 years
and $10 for 4 and up, with
no time limit; parents do
not pay to play.

Commission discusses communication improvements


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Communication and
working better with
county staff were focal
points of the Sarasota
County Commission's
annual retreat Friday in
Sarasota.
Commissioners
pointed out communica-
tion issues with county
staff over the last year -
namely, getting informa-
tion needed to answer
hundreds of citizen
questions received each
day, and to be better
prepared for commission
meetings.
"The thing that is really
important is refining
communication," said
Commissioner Carolyn
Mason. "We need to
refine, not define, how
we communicate with
each other and how
we communicate with
our constituents. This
is hugely important to
me, and over the last
four years I have seen
some gaps. That's why I
think we should refine
it make sure the five
of us get info regard-
ing issues so we know
how to respond to our
constituents."
Florida's Sunshine


Law dictates that county
commissioners cannot
discuss any county busi-
ness among themselves.
That puts further strain
on the commission/staff
relationship leading up
to meetings.
"This is a case of the
system we're under and
we need to be prepared
when we get on the
bench," Commissioner
Joe Barbetta said. "The
charter says we work for
you (the citizens) and,
technically, we can't
interact with the employ-
ees other than when they
come to see us to go over
an agenda item prior to
a meeting. I think that
if there's something that
can use some improve-
ment ... there has to be a
better way to do that."
Barbetta said email
updates would be easier
than one-on-one meet-
ings with staff members,
especially since most
commissioners are
completely booked
with staff members on
the day before a board
meeting. Commissioner
Nora Patterson stressed
the importance of the
one-on-one meetings,
especially because board
members will be coming
and going in the next


couple of years. The
county will look at ways
to have one-on-ones
and emails sent further
in advance of meetings,
in an effort to eliminate
last-minute planning.
Commissioners also
discussed ways that staff
could improve presenta-
tions to the commis-
sion during meetings.
Patterson noted that
several senior staffers
appear very nervous dur-
ing presentations during
meetings and cited


recent procurement and
impact-fee presentations
as examples. She sug-
gested commissioners
should ask questions in a
less-threatening manner.
"Maybe we're just nasty
because we don't under-
stand, or we want more
information," Patterson
said. "Sometimes staff
members are nervous
enough that they haven't
really listened to ques-
tions, and so we get this
whole tap dance that
really doesn't answer the


question. That doesn't
serve well."
County Administrator
Randall Reid said train-
ing has begun with coun-
ty staff to show them
better use of PowerPoint
presentations. Training is
also in the works that will
help staff better explain
items when they face the
commission. Reid cited a
presentation in Tuesday's
commission meeting in
South Venice, when staff
presenting on impact
fees did not want to say a


proposed hike would be
34 percent, instead going
with "half of 68 percent."
"All that did was make
the presentation more
confusing," Reid said.
Patterson had a more
simple answer for
nervous presenters.
"Maybe we could
just smile every once
in a while," Patterson
said, drawing laugh-
ter from her fellow
commissioners.

STAFF WRITER
More than 130 Coastal
Behavioral Healthcare
Center patients may have
had their personal infor-
mation compromised,
based on the discovery of
patient lists in the vehicle
of two people arrested
after a traffic stop.
Joanne Radcliffe,
interim chief executive
director at Coastal in
Sarasota, said Friday that
Lee County authorities
alerted her of the poten-
tial information breach.
Coastal has branches
in Sarasota, Charlotte,
DeSoto and Lee counties
offering mental health,
substance abuse, preven-
tion and intervention,
family emergency treat-
ment and services for
seniors and women.
"We were told who the
two people were that
were detained in the traf-
fic stop," Radcliffe said.
"Neither of these two are
or ever were associated
with Coastal Behavioral
Healthcare, so I'm unsure
where or how they got
our patient lists."
The lists recovered dur-
ing the police investiga-
tion in October are dated
April 2011 and include
136 patients' names and
other personal informa-
tion, including birth
dates, addresses, phone
numbers and possibly
Social Security numbers
and insurance informa-
tion. Other patients may
be affected as well.
"As part of our in-
vestigation, we have
determined it is possible
that additional patients
may have been affected,"
Coastal officials stated in
a release.
"We are fully cooperating

with police," Radcliffe
said, adding that she
was unsure where the
patients in question live.
"The (patient) informa-
tion from the list rises to
the level HIPAA (Health
Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act)
requires to alert patients.
[HIPAA mandates safe-
guards to protect the
security and confidentiality
of patient information.]
We have taken this very
seriously... .We are
sending out letters to all of
the patients on the list to
alert them that someone
had somehow stolen their
information."
Coastal has been con-
ducting an internal inves-
tigation separate from
the police to determine
how the information
may have been removed
illegally from Coastal
premises, Radcliffe said.
Radcliffe said Coastal has
apologized to clients for
the "stress and worries this
unforeseen situation may
have caused patients."
"Coastal is doing
everything to rectify the
situation and prevent
it from occurring in the
future," the release states.
"This appears to be a
deliberate theft of records;
nevertheless, Coastal is
reviewing all processes
to strengthen the existing
security measures we
have in place. Coastal is
prepared to offer any cli-
ent affected by this event
identity-theft protection
for a period of time."

Argument over'spice' ends in domestic battery

name for
synthetic
marijuana.
According

Official: Mulch fire under control


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
The mulch fire at the
chipper mill in North
Port Estates that has
been burning since
early Monday morning
was under control by
late Tuesday afternoon,
according to city fire
officials.
"Things are look-
ing pretty good right
now," said North Port
Fire Marshal Michael
Frantz. "The fire is, for
all practical purposes,
out. It's still smoking,
but there's no active
fire."
The fire began
around 5:45 a.m.
Monday off Joe Jeff
Street and continued
burning through the
night while large au-
tomatic sprinklers set
up on the four corners
of the mulch pile each
pumped about 500
gallons of water per
minute onto the fire.
Frantz said the over-
night rain also helped
some. Three fire crews
remained on duty
throughout the night to
reposition the sprin-
klers as needed and
watch for flare-ups.
"Right now, we're


STAY ALERT TO
WILDFIRE THREATS
Sarasota County fire officials encourage
residents and visitors to stay alert to wildfire
threats. Last month ranked among the top
five driest Novembers on record across the
region, significantly increasing the risk to
wildfires.
Officials offer the following tips:
Most Florida wildfires are caused by
lightning strikes. Arson and carelessly
discarded cigarette butts contribute to
the cause as well. Remember there is an
ordinance against throwing cigarette butts
and ashes out of vehicles. You could be
responsible for damages your carelessness
may cause.
Ensuring there is a cleared area


trying to move the
mulch piles around
and get into the middle
of them to make sure
we don't have a deeply
buried fire," Frantz
said. "The (state)
Division of Forestry
and the owners of the
property are out there
with bulldozers. These
things are an acre in
size and 15 to 20 feet
deep. They've been
doing it pretty much all
day long."
Eight entities assisted
North Port Fire Rescue
with the fire Monday.
Frantz said there were
fewer on hand Tuesday.


around your house reduces the intensity
and risk of a wildfire from spreading to
your home. Defensible space not only
helps to protect your home in the critical
minutes it takes a fire to pass, it also gives
firefighters an area to work in. During a
large-scale fire, when many homes are
at risk, firefighters must focus on homes
they can safely defend.
Clearing flammable vegetation, debris
and installing heat resistant soffit vents will
enhance your home's chances to survive
wildfire.
Monitor local radio and TV stations for
fire reports, evacuation procedures and
evacuation centers. Keep an emergency
checklist handy and prepare to evacuate
if your neighborhood is threatened.
Proper preparation includes closing all


And while the fire is
under control, some
still might monitor the
site overnight.
"We'll probably have
a skeleton crew stay,"
he said.
The cause of the
fire has not yet been
determined.
"It's a little early to
be able to tell. We've
been so active in trying
to extinguish the fire,
and you can't climb on
top of (the mulch pile)
- because it's unstable
- and pick away and
get into the middle of
it," Frantz said.
He said the cause

windows and doors, arranging garden
hoses so they can reach any area of your
house, and packing your car for a quick
departure.
Store firewood, propane tanks
or gasoline as far from the house as
possible.
Clean gutters and roof of leaf litter and
pine needles.
When planting foundation plants,
keep a clear space at plant maturity of
at least 2-3 feet from the side of the
house. Use fire-resistant plants as much
as possible.
Do not dispose of yard waste trimmings
or dead plants on vacant lots.
Make sure smoke alarms are in good
working order in your home.
Do not water your roof when a wildfire


may not be deter-
mined, since so much
water was poured onto
the mulch.
The location had a


large mulch fire about
seven years ago that
took almost a week to
extinguish. The owner
was fined and the city


approaches your home. It places you in
danger and reduces the water pressure for
the fire hydrants.
Have an emergency supply kit ready.
When driving in reduced visibility,
reduce your speed and drive with your
headlights on.

the latest information about travel condi-
tions during wildfires can call the Florida

with up-to-the-minute reports about

Back local drive on texting ban


Could next year be the year
Florida finally bans texting
while driving?
Could it be the year utterly sensible
text-ban legislation makes it through
both the House and the Senate?
Could it be that Gov. Rick Scott
actually signs it into law?
And that Florida's roads are a little
safer?
Though it's still early, signs are
pointing to a "yes."
Rep. Doug Holder, R-Osprey, is
picking up the House side of a bill of-
fered by Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice,
for the past two years. It is a simple,
straightforward bill that states:
"A person may not operate a motor
vehicle while manually typing or
entering multiple letters, numbers,
symbols or other characters into a
wireless communications device or
while sending or reading data in such


a device for the purpose of nonvoice
interpersonal communication, includ-
ing, but not limited to communication
methods known as texting, mailing
and instant messaging."
Got that? In other words, no typing
on a cellphone, iPhone, smartphone,
Ipad, whatever, while you're behind
the wheel of a car.
Sound harsh? Hardly.
The fact is the bill would make
texting a secondary offense, meaning
police would need another, primary
reason to pull someone over before
handing out a ticket for texting. A
first-time offender would be fined $30
for a nonmoving violation; a second
offense within five years would cost
$60. No points on your license. And
there are even exceptions for GPS
devices, for emergency workers and
for anyone simply reading cellphone
messages. In short, the law bans the


action of typing only.
Simple enough?
You'd think so, especially consider-
ing an AAA study found 95 percent of
American motorists thought texting
- other people's texting, apparently
- threatened their personal safety.
Thirty-nine states already ban texting
for all drivers; another five impose a
ban on "novice" drivers.
A slam dunk? Not so fast.
Strange things happen in the State
House. Two years ago, Detert's bill
passed the Senate 34-4. It moved to
the House and disappeared. This past
year, it suffered a similar fate. The
bill won approval 20-1 in the Senate
Budget Committee. But, again, it was
doomed by problems on the House
side.
Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff, a powerful
committee chair, was deadset against
it. House Speaker Dean Cannon didn't


like it either: At one point, he told the
Tampa Bay Times, "I've got personal
liberties concerns."
So, RIP texting bill.
The good news is those two House
members are gone. Longtime legisla-
tor Detert should have more clout.
And Holder's standing has increased
in the House; he is reportedly tight
with new Speaker Will Weatherford.
So maybe this time it can get done.
We hope so.
We'll skip the statistics that dem-
onstrate just how dangerous texting-
while-driving can be. We won't harp
on the fact that younger people are
growing up with a text-all-the-time
mindset. A state driving-while-texting
ban might not stop the behavior, but
it will discourage it.
Texting while driving is distracted
driving. Distracted driving is danger-
ous. Let's get this law on the books.


Chorus lines


If you want to be amazed at
what a fantastic job a group
of young people representing
Venice High School can do you
should check out the Venice High
School Chorus if ever the oppor-
tunity arises. Me, I am a sports
guy; the competition, electricity
and the underdog's shot at the
upset keep me entertained. But
this event was different.
This was the Yuletide
Madrigal Feaste held at the
Venice United Church of
Christ. My friend's daughter
Brittany Alden performs with
this group, and we were all
excited to watch. Brittany is a
talented and smart young lady
who is driven and will make
a difference in both her and
other people's worlds as she
develops into an adult.
It began with perhaps one of
the most frustrating things we
Americans cannot get used to
- waiting in line. The veterans
knew why, but we rookies had
not a clue and we soon lost
patience. Then we realized that
the greeters were ringing a bell
and announcing every party
to the group. Patience was
restored. And when it comes
your turn, well, it just feels
good to be announced.
After everyone was seated,
we began the evening with a
welcome orated by a delight-
ful young lady. The King and
Queen and the court made
their entrance and then they
announced the traditional
toast known as the Wassail
Toaste. In this case, warm
apple cider was the drink, and
just for a moment I was back
on Peel Chestnut Mountain
drinking cider and sleigh-
riding with the gang.
An interesting twist was that
trumpeters blew their horns
before each segment and,
by design, this was the worst
trumpeting I have ever heard.
We all got a hearty laugh each
time they were on stage.
We learned of the Legend
of the Boar's Head and began
our feast, first by purchasing
a flower for the ladies. I chose
a red one. We were served
proudly by the young people
of the choral group. As a unit
this group handled serving
almost flawlessly. My guess is
that more than 250 people were
there and it was timed perfectly.
All through this event there
were songs and jesters keeping
us entertained; the young lady
with the southern drawl was
exceptional.
After dinner came "Ye
Tournament of the Joust" -
two knights in competition
to entertain the royal court


and us peasants. Brittany had
the honor of announcing the
Yodeling Yellow Knight, and
she was marvelous. We had the
Bellowing Black Knight versus
the Yodeling Yellow Knight. At
this point, the Yodeling Yellow
Knight stole the show; words
can't describe the noise that
came from this young man, and
he delivered the noise at just
the right time every time during
the performance. I had tears in
my eyes from laughing so hard.
As it goes, there were four
events, and each knight won
two, so we ended with a well-
deserved tie.
As we enjoyed a final skit,
about a missing love song, were
we masterfully being set up for
the concert yet to be performed?
The last skit concluded and
we were ushered into the main
auditorium of the church,
where Stephen Johns grabbed
our attention. His love for the
music and for the kids clearly
was evident in the dining area,
but he lit up like the North Star
when we got to the auditorium.
He knew what we were about to
see, and there was a strong glow
of pride on his humble face as
he talked us through it.
A group from Venice Middle
School, The Venice Voices,
opened the show with two
songs, and boy, they were
great. Our community has
lots to look forward to as they
move into high school.
Then the concert began and
there was complete silence
from the crowd. The kids
performed flawlessly as we
were led on a brilliant musical
journey. The more I listened,
the more I realized that these
kids had to have practiced just
as much as any sports team.
They had to sacrifice time and
energy to be at this level, and
they love doing what they do.
The song that gets you is
"Carol of the Bells." The kids were
strategically placed all around
the auditorium, and from the
song's beginning until the final
bell you hear nothing but perfect
sound and it touches your heart.
The concert closed with a beauti-
ful version of "Silent Night," and
then it was over. The kids were
wiped out yet excited to begin
the age-old tradition of hugging
the seniors and congratulating
one another for a fantastic job.
The audience left feeling better
about being alive.
The Venice High School
Choral Department wow,
what a group. Thank you for
making it a night to remember
for those lucky enough to
experience your Christmas gift.

Step up. I think Kit McKeon
and Jim Bennett should be
assigned to the issue of the
chairs for the Christmas
parade and the boat parade.
Since they don't seem to be
doing much else on council
except riding the coattails of
the rest of the council mem-
bers who are sticking their
necks out on controversial
issues, they should step up to
the plate and do something
by taking on an issue like that.
You know it's going to be a big
issue because people have
been putting their chairs out
for years for both events. I
think they should step up to
the plate. They just sit there
and vote on issues, but they
don't do any of the hard work.
Don't look. Don't tell people
to drive slowly on Shamrock
looking at the colored lights.
Someone died last year driving
slowly looking at the pretty
lights.
Sell cars. I thinkVern
Buchanan should stick with his
car lot and leave politics alone.
Simple answer. The solution
to the texting-while-driving
problem is as follows: Carry a
concealed weapon legal, of
course; if hit by a texter, cell
user or an idiot with a dog
in their lap, exact retribution
on the spot. Use the stand-
your-ground defense. If it's a
success, texting will diminish
quickly.

you. My husband and I went to
Walmart to get a new battery
for the car. We got separated
and he was missing for two
hours. Every employee and
staff member was looking for
him. The sheriff found him

Have It
walking down South U.S. 41
about one mile away or so. I
just want people to know how
wonderful Walmart, police and
customers were to come out
so fast to start looking for him.
Thank you so much.
Switch it. Restaurant
owners, the election is over.
I went into two restaurants
yesterday. We did not want to
stay because Fox News was
playing. Why don't you just put
a medium news station on,
like CNN not to the left -
so then you won't have your
patrons leaving.
Tall tales. With regard to
the height of U.S. generals,
Eisenhower was really 5 feet,
11 inches, according to
West Point records. General


MacArthur reportedly wore
elevated shoes and boots.
Grant was shortest of all, an
alcoholic and had a complex
about his weight. Besides that,
women prefer tall men and
that is a fact, not a personal
opinion. Maybe this will put
an end to the discussion about
the height of successful men.
Setback. This is a discus-
sion about the construction
of a bank at Indian Avenue
and Business 41. I'm not sure
why the bank was built so
close to the sidewalk into the
street. Looks like the building
could have been placed on the
opposite side of the lot with
a more open and, therefore,
a more spacious appearance.
Doesn't appear there's enough
of a setback in case someone
might want to widen Indian
Avenue leading to the school.
An additional lane leading to
the school surely is in order,
and it should have been done
prior to the completion of the
new high school. Only com-
mon sense. Poor planning on
someone's part. The building
blocks the view at the intersec-
tion. It appears out of place.
Just some thoughts.
Hush. Stop the whining.
We live in the best country.
We practice or don't practice
our religion. I would prefer
that tomatoes be square, but I
don't complain about it. This is
South Florida, not New York or
Indiana or Ohio. We do things
differently. That's why we live
here. If you don't like it, stay up
north.

Easing caregiver stress at the holidays


Why does our stress in-
crease when this should
be one of the happiest
times of the year?
Family, festivities and
great food are exciting
and fun or at least
we expect them to be.


However, it can become
holiday overload,
especially for caregivers
already dealing with
stress. For caregivers
already feeling pushed
to the edge prior to the
holidays, the added pres-
sure can bring them to
the end of their rope.
Here are some tips
to make caregiving less
stressful around the
holidays.
Ask yourself what you
want to get out of the
holidays. Is it realistic?
Keep it simple. For
example, instead of


preparing a large dinner
do a brunch, or better
yet, let someone else do
the cooking. Cook and
freeze food ahead of
time.
Celebrate when it's the
best time of the day for
your loved one. Morning
or early afternoon
may be better than the
evening.
Let people know ahead
of time your loved one's
condition. For example,
he or she may have dif-
ficulty using proper uten-
sils or communicating.
It's also important


to let people know the
importance of keeping
to the daily scheduled
routine as much as pos-
sible in order to prevent
disruptive behavior.
Accept that the holidays
are going to be different.
Ask for help.
It doesn't have to
be perfect. Enjoy the
moment and count your
blessings.
Need some holiday gift
ideas for caregivers? Here
is the best gift you can
give a caregiver: respite.
Pay for some extra
respite time at the Senior


Friendship's Adult Day
Program, where a loved
one can enjoy supervised
activities while the
caregiver gets a much-
deserved break. Offer to
sit with a loved one so the
caregiver can run errands,
get a yearly physical,
attend a support group or
even take a nap. Give gift
certificates for a massage,
lunch, movie, etc. Offer
to do or pay for the house
cleaning for the week. Be
a good friend; listen and
offer a shoulder to lean
on.
If you, or someone


you know is a caregiver,
help is available through
the Senior Friendship
Caregiver Resource
Center at 2350 Scenic
Drive, Venice, 941-584-
0071. Stop by or call for
information on com-
munity resources, classes
and support groups. Let
us help ease the burden
of caregiving.
Happy holidays!

Phyllis Balliett is
the caregiver com-
munity resources man-
ager at Senior Friendship
Centers.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Has something
changed?

Editor:
Several years ago my
wife and I drove through
Venice along the Florida
coastline and both
agreed that this city was
different from the com-
mercial, out-of-control
areas that have become
an eyesore all over
Florida due to overdevel-
opment, bad planning
and, in general, lack of
concern for the environ-
ment and for allowing
people to live in peace.
But here in Venice, it
seemed it was different,
with shoreline beaches
open to the public and
parks dotted everywhere,
beautiful birds in water-
ways thriving nature
and open spaces planned
by a city that allows
eagles to nest in the
downtown undisturbed.
It took only that drive
through Venice to decide
to live here and enjoy
all of the beauty, peace
and quiet near the Capri
Isle golf course and
Pinebrook Park, with
its walking trails and
fitness stations created


30-plus years ago by
Sarasota County and the
Boy Scouts of America
and other hardworking
residents and organiza-
tions along a beautiful
river, where the river
area floods when it rains
and becomes a swamp
teeming with wildlife of
all kinds.
Then the reality sets in
that all of a sudden ev-
eryone wants to develop
the park and bulldoze
the oasis that sits in
the middle of all this
developed land, with its
beautiful homes, streams
and ponds. They want
to take away the walk-
ing trails, fitness trails
and habitat for wildlife.
This is a park devoted to
nature and fitness. This is
not a place for police and
fire training, or a place
for commercial develop-
ment or maintenance
garages, or a place to
expand ballfields that no
one seems to get much
use out of.
Think for a minute
about all of the taxpay-
ers that enjoyVenice for
only part of the year, but
pay taxes that support
services year-round
and wish to continue


enjoying the Venice that
caught us by surprise
several years ago. Now
see this fight by so many
outside forces that want
to come in and bulldoze
and commercially devel-
op in our backyard, and
you wonder what has
changed since that first
drive through Venice,
a city that seemed so
remarkable and unreal
to us at the time. Have
we now joined the ranks
of so many other Florida
cities and towns and
become out of control?

Talk to the'Cliff'

Editor:
We have an opportu-
nity to bring the truth to
the American people by
having our elected repre-
sentatives present their
respective cases on "The
Fiscal Cliff" on C-SPAN.
They would then not be
able to blame the other
side for misrepresenta-
tions or misstatements
and we might just hear
the truth. Presentations
could be aired at prime
time with notice so that
American taxpayers
might actually listen.

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS SOCCER



Indians lose lead, Dalton, in 2-2 tie


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

For the first 60
minutes of the VHS
girls soccer team's away
match at Lakewood
Ranch Monday night
it was the Indians who
looked like the district's
top team.
Alas, in the final 20
the wheels both
literally and figuratively
- came off.
The Indians (8-4-2,
6-2-2) squandered a
2-0 second-half lead
and lost standout


forward Emily Dalton
in a 13-minute span en
route to a 2-2 draw with
the Mustangs (12-1-1,
9-1-1).
After a scoreless first
half marred by a down-
pour that continued
throughout the match,
it appeared as though
both teams would
struggle to get on the
scoreboard at all. But
Venice broke through
in the 48th minute
when Brandi Burrows'
shot following a third
consecutive corner kick
deflected off a Mustangs


defender and into the
left corner of the net.
The Indians made it a
2-0 game just three min-
utes later as Yasmin Velez
and Dalton embarked on
a 2-on-4 counterattack
that resulted in Dalton
maneuvering around
the Mustangs defense
and launching a rocket
from the outskirts of the
penalty area. Velez's deft
possession and pass-
ing enabled the play to
develop.
From that point
forward, however,
everything went sour.


Chelsea Martin's
left-footed strike from
20 yards out in the
60th minute cut the
Indians' lead in half,
and Dalton suffered a
Grade 2 MCL strain in
the 63rd minute when
she collided with the
Mustangs keeper while
both went after a loose
ball.
Dalton, who will
miss four to six weeks,
writhed on the flooded
field in pain before
being carried off by
medical personnel.
Her absence


weakened an already-
thin Indians squad
that was missing three
starters due to injury.
Mustangs forward Tyler
Gordon took advantage
of a misplay by the
Venice defense, tying
the game at 2-2 in the
73rd minute on a strike
from 18 yards out.
Venice was able to
salvage the tie, thanks in
large part to the play of
goalkeeper Marlee Tyde,
who thwarted numer-
ous Mustangs strikes
from inside the box,
including a breakaway


in the 38th minute.
Venice head coach
Gary Bolyard said, "We
played great for the first
three-quarters of the
game, we just ran out of
gas late.
"With the conditions
and the weather, it's
never in the bag. I'll
take a 2-2 tie against
that team in those
conditions."
The Indians will
host Port Charlotte
Wednesday evening and
Sarasota Friday. Both
matches kick off at 7:30.

Vikings board members allege stonewall


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The dispute over the
Venice Vikings' financial
records has entered the
legal realm, with no end
in sight.
Prior to the Nov. 28
publication of an ar-
ticle calling the Vikings'
operations and handling
of money into question,
Vikings board member
at-large Heidi Fraley
appointed reporter Dale


White as her agent.
Florida Statutes
Sections 617.1602 and
617.1603 entitle any
member of a corporation
or a member's designated
agent to inspect and copy
the corporation's records
within 10 business days of
making a written request
to do so.
White appeared at the
Vikings' November board
meeting on Nov. 14 on
Fraley's behalf and made
such a request. Each


member of the Vikings
board, including presi-
dent Jay Thinnes, was
presented with a hard
copy of White's request.
Fraley says she turned
to White after her own
(and then-vice president
Mike Trapani's) requests
for the records went
unanswered.
Fraley asserts that
White's request has been
brushed off as well,
and in a letter dated
Dec. 9, she informed


Thinnes and the Vikings
board that she would be
invoking Florida Statute
Section 617.1604, which
states:
"If a corporation does
not, within a reasonable
time, allow a member
to inspect and copy
any record, and the
member complies with
any prerequisites to
inspection and copying
imposed by this section,
the member may apply
to the circuit court in


the county where the
corporation's principal
office, or, if none in this
state, its registered office,
is located for an order to
permit inspection and
copying of the records
demanded."
A local attorney, W
Russell Snyder, informed
Fraley via email on
Dec.10 that he had been
hired as the Vikings' at-
torney. Snyder's email to
Fraley reads:
"The Venice Vikings


have no record of
your having made any
written requests for
records of the corpora-
tion described in ES.
617.1601(5), that written
demand being a condi-
tion precedent to any
inspection or copying
under ES. 617.1602."
Attempts to reach
Snyder after business
hours to inquire about
White's letter were
unsuccessful.

Lee takes JV title
Venice's JV team had

Friday. Sage Lee won the
126-pound championship.


STAFF REPORT

The VHS girls basketball team was
upended 61-35 by an experienced
Sarasota Sailors squad Tuesday.
The Indians came out strong but
were soon overwhelmed by the Sailors'
pressure defense.
"Offensively, we started out great,"


said Indians head coach Jim Davis.
"(Sarasota) picked up the pressure and
we turned the ball over. They're a good
team, they've got a lot of upperclassmen.
They're the best team we've played in
the district so far. They picked up the
pressure and we weren't ready for it.
"It's a good learning lesson for us.
We've got a lot of work to do."


Maggie Flynn led the Indians with
14 points.
Venice will host Port Charlotte
Friday night.

Booker rallies past Indians
The Indians fell 55-48 at home to
Booker Friday night.


Venice led by 12 at halftime but lost its
composure during the final two quarters.
"In the second half the game
became chaotic and we responded by
taking bad shots and turning the ball
over," said Davis.
Koree Ream led the Indians with
11 points, Angelo added 10 and
Hanewinckel scored 9.

Audit outlines plethora of SCAT woes


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

An audit released by
Sarasota County details
major problems within
the Sarasota County
Area Transit bus system,
including cash left unat-
tended in SCAT offices,
more expensive parts
contracts and lost grant
revenue over a period of
two months.
The audit comes three
years after a similar audit
was done on the system,
which serves nearly 3
million riders per year.
County Administrator
Randall Reid said a lot of
the recommendations in
the 2009 audit were not
acted on. He said SCAT
does a lot of business by
cash or tokens, and that
has caused a number of

He said he's hearing
North Port would like
more medical ser-
vices and clinics at a time
when competing hospital
interests in Venice have
heated up recently.
Council members
agreed it was a good idea,
but a few said Carlesimo


accounting issues.
"We do audits all the
time, and this one is
particularly important
because of the size of
the operation and the
amount of intercon-
nected parts and cash
that comes in," Reid said.
"This is an issue of how
to improve and assure
accountability."
Findings in the audit
include:
Envelopes containing
cash and checks were left
unattended on employ-
ees' desks. A review of
SCAT's cash controls
revealed that a single
employee who is respon-
sible for handling and
depositing cash receipts
also has control over the
SCAT ticket inventory -
something that should
be the responsibility of

operator for its home
games.

should have vetted the
idea among his peers
before taking it to North
Port's commission first.
Carlesimo sent a letter
by email to the North
Port Commission yester-
day, asking it be read into
the record, before council
considered the idea.
"I don't have a problem
with this," said Council
Member Jeanette Gates,
but she asked, "How
come this didn't come to
this board first?"
"I wanted it to be

SCAT general manager
Glama Carter, who took
over SCAT in September,
said she recently hired a
new financial manager
who started this week
and is in the process
of filling two part-time
positions that will help.
She said the new hires
will provide the segrega-
tion of duties required.
SCAT based the selec-
tion of the vendor for the
purchase of bus parts on
the largest percentage
discount given to the
county and not the final
price for the items -
resulting in significant
price increases. For
example, a purge valve
for a bus cost $27 from a
prior vendor on May 11.

to be two weeks between

"I think it's a great
idea," said Venice Mayor
John Holic, adding, "I,
too, would have liked
to discuss this before it

Concerned it wasn't

Holic added it to the next

Reid said he ordered
the audit to help give
Carter an idea of what
conditions were with
SCAT.
"I've had a lot of
people tell me, 'My

Carter said. "Well (they
are), but if I don't know
what needs to be fixed
and what's broken, I
can't correctly tell what's
wrong. This is a way for
us to identify all those
areas. I will have my

Riddle


me this,


carver

By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER
As a young boy, Alex
Riddle decided to carve
things he wanted but
couldn't afford.
"I got into it because I
love fishing and I didn't
have any money, so I
made my own fishing
lures," Riddle said.
Seventy years later, he's
still carving.
The retired Michigan
Bell Telephone manager
has a workshop in his
garage and sells carved
animals, lighthouses and
tiki statues to passersby.
He has accumulated so
many pieces that his wife,
Barbara Waters-Riddle,
told him the house was
starting to look like a
museum.
Riddle, 77, uses X-acto
knives because of their
sharpness. He sells an as-
sortment of figures from
wooden tables he created.
"That big walnut (Jesus
bust) over there," Riddle
said, "that was extremely
difficult. It took me three
months to finish."
Riddle said he is not
picky when it comes to
the wood he uses to carve
his sculptures, using
downed trees, discarded
branches and logs from
the neighborhood. He
special orders the ma-
jority of wood he uses,
however.
"The pointy things
(busts) over there are
cypress knees," Riddle
said. "They come from
Louisiana. I have a
supplier down there.
She ships them to me.
I also buy cedar and
basswood."
Riddle said he likes
basswood because of its
graininess and relative
softness. He prefers using
soft woods over hard.
Barbara is the founder
of Clowns Like Us and
performs under the
name Nuzzles the Clown.
Clowns Like Us won first
place in the Rotonda
Christmas Parade Dec. 1.

Three tours of Vietnam flying a C-130


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Retired Air Force Lt.
Col. Ron Dudley flew a
"Hercules," C-130A, four-
engine transport plane
full of troops or supplies
on hazardous missions
to the front lines during
three Vietnam War tours.
Much of the time, from
1966 to '69, he served with
the 41st Tactical Airlift
Squadron, 345th Air Wing,
out of Okinawa near the
Japanese home islands.
"Twenty-one days a
month, my five-man
crew and I would fly into
Southeast Asia in my
C-130A. It was the best air-
plane I ever flew it was
superb," said the 78-year-
old retired lieutenant colo-
nel, who now resides in
the Waterford subdivision
in Venice. "Our general
mission in Vietnam was to
resupply and support our
ground troops.
"We could handle 100
paratroopers combat-
loaded or 74 people if
you put them in seats.
Sometimes I'd fly in small
tanks or armored person-
nel carriers. I put one
personnel carrier into a
1,900-foot strip and three
months later I went back
in and flew it out," Dudley
said with satisfaction.
"I had some missions
over North Vietnam, but
most of my missions were
over Laos as a forward air
controller. We flew in at
night, dropping flares at
1,500 feet so out bombers
could see the targets.
"We took part in some
secret missions in Laos
flying out of the Royal
Thai Airbase in Thailand,"
he said. "At night we'd
fly down Highway 1 in
Laos and North Vietnam
looking for targets of
opportunity to bomb.
"If we found a target,
we'd call in an air strike.
On an average night you
would take 100 rounds
of 37mm antiaircraft
fire fromVC (Viet Cong)
gunners. On the worst
night we took just short
of 1,000 rounds.
"Sgt. Don Brant, our
loadmaster, came up with
a name for our plane:
'Super Dud and the
Do-lighters.' This became
our call sign until the VC
caught on," Dudley said.
"The fighter planes we
worked with would call in
and I'd say, 'Good eve-
ning. You're about to be
entertained by Super Dud
and the Do-lighters.'
"I had to stop using
that call sign because the
VC, the bad guys, would
call on our frequency and
say: 'Super Dud, good
to see you. We're gonna
have fun tonight."'
During one secret night
mission over Laos, theVC
anti-aircraft unit set up a
flak trap, waiting spe-
cifically for Dudley and his
C-130 to arrive. The enemy
somehow already had the
secret frequency he was
given just before takeoff
from the base in Thailand.
"When we flew into
the area the VC radio
welcomed us by saying,
'Super Dud, you have
just moved to the top of
the money chart. There
is now a $250,000 bounty
on your heads.
"'We have imported
several No. 10 (top)
gunners. Tonight is your
last night. I'm gonna be
rich tomorrow,' the VC
announcer told us over
the enemy radio.
"TheVC radio voice said,
'We had a little problem
at the original site so
we moved it eight clicks
[kilometers] up the road.'"

surrounded and under siege by the North Vietnamese Army and the Vietcong in 1967.


Dudley flew over the
designated area and was
beginning his descent
to 1,500 feet, where he
would patrol the area for
the next six hours.
"All of a sudden
there was a flicker on
the ground. I realized
immediately what had
happened. The VC had
lured me into a trap," he
said. "They opened up on
us with five 37 mm guns.
"Lucky for me I was
at 8,000 feet when they
started shooting at us. If
they had waited until I
got down to 1,500 feet I
would have been a dead
duck," he said. "I only
had to climb 5,000 to
6,000 feet to get out of
the range of their guns.
"It seemed like it took
us 20 hours to get out
of range. In reality it
was only two or three
minutes. But during
those minutes we could
hear stuff from what the
enemy was firing at us
hitting our plane.
"We finally made it
back to base at 3 a.m. I
had just gotten to bed
when an aide to Col.
Drummond, our squad-
ron commander, knocked
on my door and said he
wanted to see me right
away. I got dressed and
the aide drove me out to
the flight line where the
commander was waiting.
"'What happened
to you all tonight?' the
colonel inquired.
"I told him, 'I got stuck in
a flak trap and got shot up.'
"'You got 97 holes in the
airplane,' the commander
said incredulously.
"'Yeah, but nobody got
hurt,' I replied. "The next
night I was right back
up there flying.When I
checked in on the radio
the same ... VC voice on
the ground said to me, 'Did
you have fun last night?'
I told him, 'You can take
your radio and stick it
where the sun won't hit it.'"
In 1967 Dudley and
his C-130 took part in a
test program in Vietnam
to perfect a low-altitude
extraction system for
equipment they were
trying to drop off while
under fire or in areas
where there was insuf-
ficient landing space.
"I dropped the first
extraction under fire at a
little Army outpost along
the Cambodian border
called Cam Duc," he said.
'Another plane had flown
into the base before me
and got all shot up by quad
.50-caliber machine-guns

the runway. I came down
through a hole in the
clouds too steep to escape
the enemy machine guns.
Because I was too steep, the
balled-up parachute that
was supposed to pull the
loaded pallet out the back
of the airplane dropped
back inside the plane.
"I had to come around
a second time. On the
second pass, Sgt. Brant,
my loadmaster, went back
behind the hot load that
was ready to go, picked up
the parachute and tossed
it out. Then he stood in
the wall of the plane when
the pallet was dragged out
after the chute opened.
The skid went out the
back of the plane that was
flying 180 mph just above
the ground and skidded to
a stop within a few feet of
the waiting soldiers."
For their efforts, Dudley
and Brant were both
awarded the Distinguished
Flying Cross.
A short time later,
Dudley's C-130 crew and
a number of other trans-
port pilots perfected this
drop-off method on nu-
merous occasions while
supplying beleaguered
Marines under siege by
the North Vietnamese
Army and the VC at their
base at Khe Sahn near the
Demilitarized Zone.
After returning from
Vietnam in 1969, Dudley
went to work at Holloman
Air Force Base in New
Mexico testing Mavericks,
a new missile with a
special guidance system
that would knock out
enemy tanks and other
armored equipment. It was
a self-guided missile that

automatically hit its target.
By the time the 1970s
arrived, Dudley was sent to
Wright-Patterson Air Force
Base in Ohio to work in
the Aeronautical Systems
Division on an air-to-air
small tactical nuclear mis-
sile that could wipe out the
Soviets' air defense system.
After a year's work, the
program was shut down.
By February 1974,
Dudley had 21 years in
the Air Force and decided
to call it quits. He retired
as a lieutenant colonel
and immediately went
to work for a civilian
contractor that made
the controls for the F-16
"Falcon" jet fighter plane.
"After five years of
civilian employment, I
decided to do something
different. I'd spent the last
26 years of my life travel-
ing all over the world away


from home 50 percent
of the time. I moved to
Englewood and planned
to fish and play golf for the
rest of my life," he said.
That lasted six weeks.
He went to work as general
manager for a local home
builder. Eventually, when
the building business fell
off, Dudley and his wife,
Gae Stewart, went into
the real estate business in
1983. For almost three de-
cades they've sold property
for Re/Max Alliance Reality
inVenice.
He has three grown
children, Kevin, Wendell
and Rebecca.

New HIV/AIDS clinic opens in North Port


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
A new medical office has
opened in South County
designed specifically to
treat the needs of patients
with HIV and AIDS.
The Comprehensive
Care Center, at 14243
Tamiami Trail, near the
Winn-Dixie shopping
center in North Port,
held its grand opening
and open house recently.
"We've been in busi-
ness (in Sarasota) since
1991," said CEO Michael
Cuffage. "We provide
medical, dental, case
management, confiden-
tial testing, mental health
and psychiatric (care)
and public education."
Cuffage said they
decided to open a North
Port location because "we
currently have about 140


clients we see in Sarasota
from South County."
"And we estimate there

patients at
the health
depart-
ment we
think will
come here,"
he said.
WILSON "We're also
estimating
about 80 from Charlotte
County and about 60
from DeSoto County."
He also said that many
of their clients felt more
comfortable coming to
a clinic that is just for
them. Plus, the treatment
of other health problems
is different for patients
with HIV and AIDS than
for people without.
"We start with an HIV
specialist, then go to (ad-
ditional) care," Cuffage

safety awareness


week held


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF TRANSPORTATION
The Florida
Department of
Transportation and the
Safe Mobility for Life
Coalition observed Older
Driver Safety Awareness
Week Dec. 3-9 to raise
awareness of the impacts
of aging on driving and
the available resources
to help maintain mobil-
ity and independence.
Understanding the
impact that aging can
have on safe driving skills
and the importance of
preparing a transporta-
tion retirement plan
are some of the areas of
focus.
Florida is home to
more than 3.2 million
adults over the age of 65.
Traffic crashes were the
third leading cause of
injury death among this
group.
"With the ever in-
creasing number of
Florida's population
over the age of 65, it is
important to address
their mobility needs,"
said Lora Hollingsworth,
FDOT chief safety
officer. "By emphasiz-
ing the importance of
being proactive about
staying safe drivers and
engineering safer com-
munities, we can help
older adults maintain
mobility and prepare to
transition when driving
may no longer be a safe
option."
The Safe Mobility for
Life Coalition was cre-
ated to help reduce the
number of crashes while
improving the safety,
access and mobility for
Florida's aging road users.
The coalition consists
of representatives from
the Florida Department
of Transportation and
Pepper Institute on
Aging and Public Policy,
along with 26 national,
state and local aging and
safety advocates, working

a specific condition, such
as heart disease, first.
They also have a mo-
bile testing unit Cuffage
said will go "wherever
there's roads as far
south as Naples and as
far north as Tampa."
Dr. TonyWilson will be
the physician staffing the
new North Port location.
He said he is continually
inspired by the AIDS and
HIV patients he treats.
"It has to do with the
human spirit and (with
their) coming to grips with
adversity," he said. "Their
ability to maintain good
outlook and good humor.
I find all of those aspects
in many of my patients.
"They're resilient. It en-
courages you to want to
help them more," Wilson
continued. "It is inspir-
ing to me as a human


together to balance both
the safety and mobility
needs of Florida's aging
population.

'Annie' brings joy to the world


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The Players' produc-
tion of "Annie" delights
the senses. It is what
good theater is all about.
Directed and choreo-
graphed by Bob Trissolini,
the Depression-era
story of an orphan named
Annie (Hannah Beatt), a
dog named Sandy (Holly
the dog) and billionaire
Oliver Warbucks (Jgar
Hellwig) becomes a heart-
warming feast for eyes
and ears a Christmas
present in every sense.
Scenes blend together
seamlessly as we meet
Annie, her fellow orphans
and the delightfully wicked
Miss Hannigan (Terri
Solomon); the billionaire
and his good-looking
and kind secretary, Grace
Ferrell (ShelleyWhiteside);
Hannigan's good-for-noth-
ing brother Rooster (Scott
Vitale) and his girlfriend,
Lily (Savannah Clair);
radio star Burt Healy (Chip
Fisher); and the wonderful
ensemble players who
doubled as street people in
"Hooverville," members of
Warbucks' staff and other
roles as needed to drive
the story.
That blending tech-
nique does away with
nearly 30 minutes of
time in the first act alone,

without cutting words or
actions. All that is missing
is that empty space when
scenes are changed and
audiences begin to doze.
There is no dozing in this
perfectly paced show.
Instead, there are
bonuses such as Beatt's
renditions of "Tomorrow"
and other classic "Annie"
songs; charming dance
numbers featuring the
orphans but with added
shtick such as Molly (Lilly
Mae Stewart), the littlest
orphan, becoming stuck
in a bucket; backstage
nonsense at Burt Healy's
radio show; the Easy Street
number featuring Rooster,
Lily and Miss Hannigan;
and every appearance
of Solomon, who really
nails her role. Think Carol
Burnett in the film version
of this hit musical.
The strength of this
show runs deep. As the
orphans, Eva Bayer, Kaity
Cairo, Samantha Crawford,
Emma Diner, Sarah
Johnson, Amanda Lade,
Lily Mancini, Jillian Park,
Alanna Rife, Grace Roe,
Claudia Young and Stewart
are totally delightful. Also
performing their roles to
perfection are ensemble

Kaylene McCaw's cos-

President Roosevelt.

- another plus.

Plantation women spread Christmas joy


By ADRIANNE PETRILLO
GUEST WRITER

The Christmas
season has arrived,
and our thoughts turn
to family and friends
with the anticipation
of gatherings and
celebrations.
As busy a time as
it is, we should still
remember those who
are in need in our
community, those who
are not as fortunate as
we are and who may
need a helping hand.
One community, Myrtle
Trace in Plantation Golf
and Country Club, has
done just that.
About 18 years ago,
Mary "Divot" McHugh
and Barbara "Bunker"
Diehl discovered that
there were families in
Venice that needed
assistance during the
holiday season. They
took it upon themselves
to talk to Taylor Ranch
Elementary School
administrators and
guidance counselors
who knew of families
in the area that needed
help.
The families had
approached the school
questioning how they
could receive family
assistance. The prob-
lems of these families
ranged from long-term


Project supporters Marie and Bill Grove.


unemployment and
mounting debt to incar-
cerations and medical
expenses for severe
illness, among others.
So, Mary and Barbara
gathered a group of
women who were
willing to help make
the Christmas holiday
joyous for those families
by holding a fundraiser
brunch.
Today, many years
later, this event contin-
ues under the direction
of Ann Marie Baldenko.
The women donate
their time to cook


and cater a wonderful
brunch, hold a raffle
to raise further funds
and shop for gifts with
the proceeds from
the brunch and raffle,
purchasing clothing,
toy items and food for
the needy families.
They hold a wrap-
ping party at which
baskets of food,
including a ham with
all the fixings, are put
together and all the
gifts are wrapped and
made ready to give to
the families.
Talking with the

wonderful women
involved with this
charitable event, they
all said that the families
are overwhelmed with
gratitude when they see
the food items and the
gifts given. The women
on the committee said it
is a thoroughly reward-
ing experience that
fulfills their Christmas
season.

County LED holiday light exchange extended


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY

Due to popular
demand, Sarasota
County will offer a final
opportunity this week
to exchange traditional
holiday decorative light
strings for energy-saving
light-emitting diode light
strings.


From 10 a.m. to noon
Thursday at Sarasota
County Fire Station
No. 21, 721 Center Road,
Venice, county residents
can bring in up to two
strings of their old
incandescent holiday
lights to exchange for
an equivalent number
of Energy Star-qualified


LED lights. There is no
cost; however, there
is a limit of two LED
holiday light strings per
household.
White and multicol-
ored LED holiday light
strings with 70 bulbs
each will be available,
while supplies last.
"LED lights are


extremely popular
because they use up to
90 percent less energy,
last longer, reduce the
risk of fire and remain
cool to the touch," said
Lee Hayes Byron, the
county's sustainability
manager.
Information on fire
prevention and home


energy-efficiency im-
provements will also be
available.
Sarasota County is
providing this service
to residents thanks
to energy education
funding through the
American Recovery
and Reinvestment
Act Energy Efficiency


and Conservation
Block Grant Program,
U.S. Department of
Energy. To learn more
about the Energy Star
LED holiday light
exchange in Sarasota
County, visit www.

Hermitage receives National Endowment grant


FROM HERMITAGE
ARTIST RETREAT

The Hermitage Artist
Retreat is one of 832
nonprofits nationwide
to receive a National
Endowment for the Arts
Art Works Grant. The
grant has been recom-
mended for $15,000
to support Hermitage
artist residencies.
This is the fourth
consecutive year the
Hermitage will receive
NEA funding, and the
fourth year since artist
communities have been
given their own funding
category through the
NEA, according to Bruce
E. Rodgers, Hermitage
executive director.
"Being recognized
as an arts category
reinforces the vital role
artist communities play
in our national cultural
landscape," Rodgers
said. "We are honored
to be chosen as a recipi-
ent of this important
national funding."
Rocco Landesman,
chair of the NEA, said,
"These projects offer
extraordinary examples
of creativity in our
country, including the
creation of new work,


innovative ways of
engaging audiences and
exemplary education
programs."
The 832 recommend-
ed NEA grants total
$23.3 million, span 13
artistic disciplines and
fields and focus primar-
ily on the creation of
work and presentation
of both new and exist-
ing works for the benefit
of American audiences.
Applications were
reviewed by panels of
outside experts con-
vened by NEA staff, and
each project was judged
on its artistic excellence
and artistic merit. For a
complete listing of proj-
ects recommended for
Art Works grant support,
go to www.arts.gov.
The Hermitage
is a nonprofit artist
retreat located at 6660
Manasota Key Road,
Englewood. It brings
accomplished paint-
ers, sculptors, writers,
playwrights, poets,
composers and other
artists from all over the
world for extended stays
on its 8.5-acre campus.
Each artist is asked to
contribute two services
to the community dur-
ing his stay.

Richards honored as conservationist


FROM CONSERVATION
FOUNDATION
Conservation
Foundation of the Gulf
Coast honored Charley
Richards Jr. as 2012
Conservation Partner of the
Year at its annual members'
reception Nov. 18.
Richards, a lifelong con-
servationist and former
Sarasota County commis-
sioner, donated land to
Conservation Foundation,
forming the basis for its
29th conservation project,
named Myakka River
Preserve at Tarpon Point.
More than 90 conser-
vation-minded guests
attended the reception at
Bay Preserve at Osprey
Kudos were given to both
the William G. and Marie
Selby Foundation and
Medallion Homes for
the most recent phase of
Conservation Foundation's
outdoor education facility.
Selby provided a $100,000
grant for the building and
Medallion Homes was
project contractor.
The completed Tarpon
Point project will enhance
recreation and education
on the Lower Myakka
River. Conservation


Foundation will restore
and beautify the land by
replacing invasive plants,
adding a kayak landing and
creating other educational
and recreational amenities.
The site is known as a great
fishing spot for tarpon and
snook and is on the Wild
and Scenic Myakka River,
which is a special state
designation.
Richards said that he
hoped his gift would
shed light on the value of
land preservation for the
entire community, with
other landowners choos-
ing to follow suit.
"We are fortunate
to have generous and
forward-thinking support-
ers like Charley Richards
in our community," said
Christine P Johnson,
president of Conservation
Foundation. "His gift of
land was the catalyst for
this project which will ul-
timately reconnect people
to the land people who
love nature, enjoy the
outdoors and care about
wildlife protection."

TAKING SOME KNOCKS
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR


People who are significantly knock-kneed are at
risk for a variety of injuries when running or
performing other high-impact exercise. Checking
for knock-knees entails standing straight with
your feet hip-width apart and looking in a mirror.
If your kneecaps turn inward and are not aligned
with the centers of your feet, you have some
degree of knock-knee. Being severely knock-
kneed can put added strain on the back, hips,
knees, lower legs, ankles, and feet. One problem


for knock-kneed runners is that the condition can
make their feet roll inward too much
(overpronate). If you are knock-kneed and are
thinking about running or engaging in other
high-impact activity, consult with a chiropractor
about getting your body into better alignment.
P.S. Most people have some degree of bowleg or
knock-knee that is within the limits of normal
structure and function.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

KS 5QJ854 0AQ62+74

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

A If you play fourth-suit forcing,
this is the time to trot it out bid
two clubs. If not, jump to three dia-
monds to create the game force.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4 85 9630 AK Q 872 A4

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 20 Pass
24 Pass ?
What do you bid now?

A Although some might argue oth-
erwise, unconvincingly we might
add, partner's spade rebid does not
promise a six-card suit, so you do not
want to bypass three no trump, which
could be your only makeable game.
That leaves a bid of three clubs, to
show your stopper there, as the only
sensible alternative.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
6 A 8 10 5 3 K QJ 10 3 2 A7

Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one no trump. What
action do you take?

A First, all doubles of no-trump
contracts are for penalties, and most
maintain that they should show the
equivalent of a sound no-trump open-
er. However, that is the worst type of
hand with which to choose that path
the opening lead often gives away
a trick. The modern style is to double
a one no trump opening bid when
you expect to beat it in your own
hand, and for that you need an easily


establishable suit and fast entries.
Since that describes your holding
exactly double!

Q 4 As South, dealer and vulnera-
ble, you hold:
SK 1096542 Q 5 o J 4 93

What action do you take?

A To pre-empt with three spades,
vulnerable, shows a disrespect for
coin of the realm. While we might
consider a three-spade pre-empt not
vulnerable, we would like to stay out
of bankruptcy court at this vulnera-
bility.

Q 5 East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

SQ8, K7 0 AJ6 AKQJ83

Your right-hand opponent deals and
opens three spades. What action do
you take?

A You could easily have a game, but
not in clubs. We would take our
chances with three no trump, hoping
partner can provide a little help. The
real problem could come if LHO
doubles!

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
6 95 5 K J 6 o A10 8 5 A Q 82


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
I1 Pass 1I
2v Pass 34
What action do you take?


EAST

A You are prepared to play three no
trump if partner has a spade stopper
or four hearts if that is a five-card
suit. Bid three diamonds and see
what response that elicits from part-
ner.

Governor applauds holding back tuition hikes


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF EDUCATION

Gov. Rick Scott released
the following statement
Dec. 5, applauding uni-
versity leaders' commit-
ment to holding the line
on tuition and making
college more affordable
for Florida families:
"We know Florida
families want the best value
possible from our higher
education system, which
means we have to make
advanced degrees more
affordable and more con-
nected to students' ability
to get a great job when they
graduate. We are pleased
to share this important
goal with many of Florida's
finest higher education
leaders who are committed


to holding the line on
tuition. We look forward
to working closely with
them as we put together a
proposed budget and other
policies for the upcoming
legislative session."
Several university presi-
dents and student leaders
convened at the Capitol to
speak on the proposal. Here
are highlights from their
remarks on the importance
of holding the line on
tuition and making higher
education more affordable:
President Eric Barron,
Florida State University:
"None of us want to
increase tuition. I don't
know of anybody in this
room that wants us to
increase tuition."
President Judy Bense,
University of West

"Dr. Bowden has the
perfect combination of

we need to take our CTE
programs to the next
level," White said.
Bowden said he is excit-
ed about the opportunities


the consolidation of career
and technical programs
will provide career-orient-
ed students.
"As the director of
the Sarasota County
Technical Institute, I
have been privileged
to work with many
outstanding community
organizations and em-
ployers as we address the
workforce development


needs of Sarasota
County," he said.
"I am extremely grate-
ful to our superintendent
and school board for the
support and trust that
they have given me. I am
excited by the opportu-
nity this new position
presents to emphasize
career, technical and
adult education in our

Holic.
This nice man
never takes himself too


seriously, like seeing the
humor in the citizen who
put the red chair in front
of city hall.
While the mayor
attends several local
events each day, he
seems especially to
enjoy the ones that
involve children. He
works closely with the
student council at Venice
Elementary School, and
it's heartwarming to see
the students comfort-
able approaching the
mayor at events like the
tree lighting. It's even
more heartwarming to
hear him remembering
they are student council
members.
Looking at the
Christmas Tree at the
Venice Archives, he
echoed the sentiments
of everyone at the event
when he said, Isn't
this beautiful? We are so
blessed to live here."

one of the people who
make Venice a great place

Palace says Duchess
of Cambridge
expecting a baby
LONDON (AP) By Robert Lloyd- Get the nursery ready:
Britain's royal family announced that Prince William and his
wife are expecting theirfirst child.
St. James' Palace said Monday that the Duchess of
Cambridge formerly known as Kate Middleton has a
severe form of morning sickness and is currently in a London
hospital.
The palace said that since the pregnancy is in its"very
early stages:'the 30-year-old duchess is expected to stay in
the hospital forseveral days and will require a period of rest
afterward.
The confirmation of her pregnancy following intense
speculation eversince their lavish Westminster Abbey
wedding last year was greeted with congratulations.
Not only are the attractive young couple popular with
William's easy common touch reminding many of his mother,
the late Princess Diana but their child is expected to play
an important role in British national life for decades to come.
As the first-born to William who is second in line forthe
throne after his father, Prince Charles the couple's child
stands an excellent chance of one day becoming monarch.
Whether boy or girl, the child will be next in line behind
William in the line of succession to the throne, Cabinet Office
officials have said.
Leaders of Britain and the 15 former colonies that have the
monarch as their head of state agreed in 2011 to new rules
which give females equal status with males in the order of
succession.
Although none of the nations had legislated to make the
change as of September 2012, the British Cabinet Office
confirmed that this is now the de-facto rule.


Who Santa really is
Being in the full swing of the holidays,we have all seen our
communities come togetherto help those who have fallen on hard
times.
At the Charlotte Sun office, Nathan Lane has been eagerly collecting
money and bicydes for children who have been good all year long and
are sure Santa won't let them down on theirwish fora bicycle this year.
The Amvets Post 312 will be hosting a fundraiser to help the North
Port Food Coalition feed, clothe and support the needy. For more
information on this event, see today's Out and About section in Let's
Go! and look for the "Feed the Hungry"event on Saturday.
I was alarmed to hear that there are currently 24 children who will
be spending Christmas at the homeless shelter in Charlotte County.
Most of us have never been to a homeless shelter, and the ones that
have, know the appreciation people have for those that lend a hand
when needed.
As Nicole Noles, Port Charlotte Herald Editor, mentioned in last
week's issue, there are senior citizens who are alone, with no family,
right here in our community. While we're enjoying the holiday with
our parents, children, aunts and uncles, theywill be alone. Down to
Earth Apparel and Gifts in Port Charlotte has a "Be Santa to a Senior"
tree, which lists names of local seniors and a gift they'd love to
receive for Christmas, some as simple as a lap throw blanket.
Thinking of all of this I started wondering who Santa really is. To
your kids he may be a guy in a red suit that lives in the North Pole.
But to those kids at a homeless shelter, or those seniors at home
alone, you're Santa. Because without people willing to be selfless
during the holidays, Santa isn't going to come for them. So I urge
you, find where your heart leads you to help,whetheryou can afford
to buy an extra gift for a child, or if you're stretched thin, but know
you're better off than someone else, volunteer somewhere. Invite
the lady down the street whose family can't visit this year to join you
for Christmas dinner. You never know the difference you can make in
someone's life during the holidays.
So Santas, let's get out there and make sure everyone feels the magic
of Christmas this year!

GO DINING OUT


By JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT

There is a restaurant that brings people
back to what Florida used to be, in a
city that offers memories for sale at the
numerous antique stores throughout its
downtown area.
Wheeler's Cafe originally became a part
of Arcadia in 1929, but it took the efforts
of community leaders Martha and Chuck
Craven and their daughter, Kelli Craven-




SLll PH .,TC.SB.. JC'.,Il
B- riP1- 111 A


F


From left, Chuck Craven,
F Kelli Craven-Taylor, Beau
Thronebury and Martha
Craven.
).


Taylor, to put the cafe back on the map in
2000."It had been sitting a couple of years
vacant,'explained Martha."The bones were
there. We put in a new floor and repainted,
new equipment We added on in the back.
Everything is pretty much like it was before."
While the Cravens brought back the
Southern charm of the cafe, it is the food
that keeps tourists and regulars coming
back for more. "Our mainstays are fried
chicken and meatloaf," noted kitchen
manager Beau Thronebury."You see the
restaurant, you think country cooking."
Thronebury, originally from the Bahamas,
spent 14 years in the UK, studying
in Manchester, England. He is
the only classically trained
and certified chef working
in DeSoto County. "My
grandmother moved


here probably 50 years ago,"Thronebury
said."When she took ill, I came back here
to care for her."For two years he has been
in charge of the kitchen at Wheeler's Cafe,
overseeing a menu that has won'The Best
Of'awards.
"The biggest push, Monday through
Thursday, we do a Blue Plate Special. For
$8.95, we give you a drink, a main course,
and dessert',Thronebury pointed out.
"In my book, the average man could feed
himself and leave quite full." Called Ms.
Wheeler's Blue Plate Special, its all part
of the old-time charm that Wheeler's
Restaurant offers. "Back in the'40s and
'50s, they always had a blue plate special,"
Martha Craven explained, who
also owns the Last Chapter
Coffee House, the Hot
Fudge Shoppe and
the Oak Park Inn, all
located in Arcadia.
While the food
brings people back to


nostalgic'50s-style small town memories,
there's a particular type of item that
always has customers coming back for
more. "People come for our desserts more
than our food,"Thronebury replied with a
laugh. While Peanut Butter Pie is always
mentioned as the best of the best, the
cafe actually prepares up to 35 different
pies, 10 varieties of cakes, peach cobbler,
rum raisin bread and other seasonal
menu items. It all adds up to one incred-
ible place to eat.
Wheeler's Cafe is open Monday through
Saturday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday
6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wheeler's is one of the few
places you find that has that old-Florida
feel with Southern country food. They are
located at 13 South Monroe Ave. in down-
town Arcadia. For more information, call
the Cafe at 863-993-1554.

Patri


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Patrick's restaurant is a family
affair-and that's a good thing.
For the past four years, Patrick
Vollmer has owned his own restaurant,
along with business partner Margarita
Santiago, but it's with the help of his
family that his restaurant has gained
its popularity.
"I was always in the restaurant
business-I was busing tables at 13
and cooked when I was 18',Vollmer
said. "Now, it's me and my mother here
in the kitchen every night."
He said that when he was growing
up, people were always telling his
mother, who is from Thailand, that she
was such a great cook, she should open
her own restaurant. Today, the two of
them together serve a menu full of
Vollmer's mother's recipes.
"We have a variety of sushi rolls,
including Jason's New England roll,"
Vollmer said. "That's with lobster,
cream cheese, asparagus and scallions.
Then it's rolled inside out, tempura
battered and deep-fried."
Jason, the namesake of that roll, is
Vollmer's brother who also works at
the restaurant. Their cousin Jeremy is
involved in the business, too.
"It's truly a family restaurant,"
Vollmer said, "and we make everything
from scratch."
Vollmer says that one of the advan-
tages of the waterfront Boca Grande
location is the natural bounty that
surrounds it.
"We buy our produce fresh from the
farmer's market and a local fisherman
gives us our grouper," he said. "My mom


's Thai Bistro and Sushi


grows her own herbs and spices for the
restaurant in her backyard."
When asked which of his dishes were
customer favorites, Vollmer said that
people loved the Jason roll, but that his
regulars seemed to like most every-
thing on the menu.
"Our Tataki is made with AAA-grade
sushi, which is the highest quality
you can buy," he said. "People love the
Lemongrass Grouper for dinner:'
The rest of the menu is filled with
a wide variety of sushi, including a
traditional California roll and a Volcano
roll, which is a California roll topped
with spicy crab meat. In addition to the
Tataki Tuna, other appetizers include
favorites such as Chicken Satay, Thai
Lettuce Wraps and Dragon Shrimp
Tempura. There are also a variety of
soups and salads, a large selection of
traditional and re-worked Thai entrees
and vegetarian entrees.
Patrick's seats about 100 people,
and offers a full bar and a tiki bar with
outside seating. They also provide on-
and off-site catering. Coming up the first
week of February will be the restaurant's
participation in the Taste of Boca Grande
at the Boca Bay Pass Club. The event
will be a fundraiser for the Harry Chapin
Food Bank of Fort Myers.
Patrick's Bistro and Sushi is currently
open from Wednesday through Sunday,
from 5 until 10 p.m. In late December, it
will be open six days a week, and then
in February, that will expand to seven
days. The restaurant is located at 5800
Gasparilla Road, in the Courtyard Plaza,
Boca Grande. For more information, call
941-525-6084.

Celebrate the holidays at Charlotte


Chamber Christmas parade


By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The 34th Charlotte County Chamber of
Commerce Christmas Parade begins at noon,
Dec. 15 at the Charlotte High School campus in
Punta Gorda and will proceed up Taylor Street
to the Event Center. The grand marshal is Punta
Gorda's own Gussie Baker, and the theme is
Celebrating our Past, Creating our Future.
That doesn't sound very"Christmasy"
but chamber executive directorJulie Mathis
explained,"That's the theme for Punta Gorda's
125th anniversary celebration, and we're just
trying to tie it all together."
The parade is popularwith holiday revelers
and annually attracts thousands of viewers
along its route. There is no bad spot to watch,
but Mathis picked the area around the viewing/
judging stand at West Virginia Avenue and
Taylor as a very good location. There, you will
get to listen to master of ceremonies and The
BoogieMen leader Mike Riley describe the
action.
Mathis advised,"We're really encouraging
people to come early, drop off their chairs and
then go to the farm market and enjoy down-
town before the parade starts."
Veteran parade watchers will notice this
year's date is two weeks later than normal, the
reason being a conflicting event at the Event
Center on the usual first Saturday of the month.
The extra time is not a negative; it gives people
more time to registerwith the chamber and


gain entry to the parade.
For parade chairman Ron Thomas, more
entries won't make his job any easier, but he is
up forwhat is a very complicated logistical task.
He said,"I don't know why they call me
chairman. There's no board of directors; we're
just a bunch of volunteers who get together
to help. Maybe just call me the grand poobah.
I started with the parade in 1990 and was in
charge of trash and horse poop. That's how I
broke into the industry."
He's since gone from wielding a shovel to the
man in charge.You can't turn onto Taylor Street
from the assembly area until he gives you the
OK.
"My primary job is to make sure the event
goes off successfully and safely"he said."There
are over 100 entries, and that sounds manage-
able, but there are lots of people coming on-site
at Charlotte High, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts,
little children, cars and trailers, all trying to get
into position. It's chaotic; my primary concern is
safety."
After everybody is on the route, he hustles up
to the Event Center to make sure the disbanding
goes smoothly, again with safety as the first
concern.
Thomas is as nice a guy as you'll ever meet,
but he has to be a dictator on parade day in
order to ensure safety for the participants,
especially the younger ones.
He said,"It's still a Christmas parade, and I
want them to have a little fun. It's a balancing
act. I have a lot of volunteers who know the

with.
"I have to make sure there are no gaps,
and many of the drivers have never been in a
parade. It's nota democracy. I've been doing
this fora lot ofyears. Safety is more important
than hurt feelings; sometimes, you just have to
make calls."
As with any event this complicated, Murphy's
law can apply.
"A couple of years ago, the Charlotte High
School gate closed automatically, and the entire
parade was trapped:' he said."Luckily, some-
body in maintenance was there to get the gate
open."
Though he's exhausted by the end of the
day and doesn't want to hearthe P word for
months, he's not about to step down from the
chairman job any time soon because, in his own
words, he's addicted to parades.
He said,"l moved here in 1989 from
Gatlinburg, Tenn., where there was a night-
time parade six weeks in a row. I loved it and
had parade feverwhen I moved here, so I just
jumped in and took whatever job they had.
"I do love the whole gathering of the
community and the people behind it. I guess I'm
just a parade junkie."

Christmas Town

tickets on line
By KIM COOL
S I .11 I I I II ,,
The ghosts and turkeys have been
replaced by the sights and sounds of the
winter holidays at Busch Gardens Tampa
Bay where Christmas Town opened Nov. 30.
Don't miss the chance to see Busch
Gardens with extra sparkle from 6 p.m.
to 11 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday
evenings from now through Dec. 23.
Imagine both snow and ice (and an ice
skating show) at the Moroccan Palace,
home of the new show, "Angels of Peace: A
Christmas Journey on Ice," featuring some
of the top skaters in the area.
In the Enchanted Flamingo Valley, no
one need wear rose-colored glasses to see
the pink flamingos made from thousands
of pink lights. The Sesame Street Gang will
be there too.
I wonder if Kasi, my favorite cheetah,
will be wearing a holiday ribbon.
There are new holiday attractions, plenty
of shopping venues, live entertainment,
sweet treats and more at this after-hours
separate ticket event. Order your tickets
online. Admission is $39.99 plus tax for
adults and $9.99 plus tax for children
3 to9.
Learn more about the event at its

Santa, his elves, and a sleigh full of
treats will land just in time to celebrate
a Magical Night on Dearborn Street
this Friday. "It's all about the children,"
exclaimed Barbara Matson,"not a spec-
tacle for adults." Matson owns the Blue
Pineapple Antique store where she's been
assembling hundreds of helium-filled
balloons for kids who will greet Santa
when he arrives for a first-ever Christmas
Parade."Dearborn Street will be blocked
off from Mango to Cedar Street,"said
parade organizer Debra Mosley, who
miraculously got the parade together in
two weeks! When she approached OEVA
(Olde Englewood Village Association),
the official sponsor, the CRA (Community
Redevelopment Authority), and a number
of individuals and supporters of neighbor-
hood projects asking: "Why can't we do it,
(have a real parade with floats) not just a
Christmas Walk as in the past',all agreed
that they could, and Magical Night, no
longer a dream, is now well on its way to
becoming the most exciting, enchanting
holiday event in Englewood history.
Lynda LaPlante, who owns Paws n
Claws, and her"pack"of 50 or more
doggies and pet owners sporting red
and green outfits or scarves, will lead
the parade with a huge banner declaring
that"VIPets Welcome Santa." Mosley's
"Neighbors Helping Neighbors"float will


advertise a "Night Before Christmas Eve
Food Drive/Chinese Auction/50-50 Raffle"
at Englewoods on Dearborn from 3-7 p.m.
on Dec. 23.
Transforming Dearborn Street and
Pioneer Park into a Florida winterwonder-
land is a labor of love for planner Marie
LaForge. "We're going to serve free hot
cocoa and help kids bake cookies and roast
marshmallows (safely) over an open fire at
Mango Bistro"she explained.
At Vino Loco, an array of holiday gift
baskets donated by area merchants will
be displayed and offered as raffle prizes.
Tickets are $1 each or six for $5, and the
lucky winner, who must be present to win,
will be chosen at 7 p.m. Starting at 5 p.m.
Santa, enthroned on his magical sleigh at
Pioneer Park, will welcome tiny tots to be
photographed. At 5:30 p.m., students from
Terra Nichol Academy, along with Lemon
Bay High School Idol contest winner, Kate
Keys, will sing carols prior to the parade
that's scheduled for 6 p.m. A DJ will be on
hand with holiday tunes to brighten spirits
and add to the fun. Two bicycles, compli-
ments of Key Agency, have been donated
as raffle prizes. People may purchase
raffle tickets at Dearborn Street Jewelry
or Mango Bistro for a drawing to be held
at 7:20 p.m., prior to the tree lighting at
Pioneer Park. Moviegoers should bring
along a chair or a blanket as FAME (Friends
for the Advancement of Musical Educa-
tion) is offering a free holiday movie

Punta Gorda boat parades


lIHht
By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
No small town does a boat parade betterthan
Punta Gorda which, during December, manages
to stage two of them every year; each attended
by tens of thousands of holiday revelers.
The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce
Parade is Dec. 16,a date chosen because of
favorable tides. The majestic sight of lighted
boats parading around beautiful Charlotte
Harbor is to get you into the holiday spirit
The Punta Gorda Isles canal-based Saturday
Night Before Christmas Eve Boat Parade offers
a less majestic but more intimate, up-close

view and a chance to interact with the revelers
on the boats.
The levels of participation are a tribute to
the experienced, community-minded, veteran
boaters at the helm of each parade, who don't
see the other parade as competition. Coop-
eration is the watchword, increasing the fun
quotient for everyone. Each parade has the other
linked on its website, and boaters are encour-
aged to participate in both whenever possible.
Doug Buuck has been organizing the chamber
parade for 10 years, and he is uniquely qualified
for the post. His company, All Marine Canvas, is
a sponsor,and his interaction with boaters gives


him a chance to proselytize for both parades.
He said, "I'm on these people's boats all the
time, and I get to talk business and the parade.
If I'm on three to five boats every day, I'm going
to get some for the parade.
"It's definitely a great combination, but
when I have my parade hat on I don't talk
about my business unless people ask. I don't
promote the business through the parade."
The parade has to be a labor of love, given
the time the job demands. One example is the
educational component.
"One of the things I offer is to teach the
route," he said."I take them (the boaters) out
and go into Edgewater Lagoon and into the
Isles and do it for free. It's highly recommended
for newcomers who may know the harbor by
day, but nighttime is very different:'
Safety is also one of his major concerns. He
not only has to worry about his boaters, but
also the hundreds of other boaters who show
up to party and watch the parade.
He said, "Chris Evans of Smugglers donated
20 orange buoys last year, which helped get
the spectators under control and make it
easier for my boaters to see the route. I also
get a full complement of police boats from
Punta Gorda and the Sheriff's Department,
Fish and Wildlife is there and the Coast Guard
Auxiliary. Last year, we even had a Coast
Guard boat from Fort Myers."
Buuck is expecting the usual number of
lighted boats this year 40 plus or minus,
depending on the weather and he's also
anticipating some fabulous decorating schemes.
"Last year, we had probably the best deco-
rated boats in many years:' he said."I look for
a repeat of last year if not better. The themes
were incredible, and the spectators went wild.
It's always a guess, but I estimate there were
15,000 to 18,000 along the shoreline."
Seeing the excited spectators is just the
cherry on top for Buuck. He gets his charge
from the interaction with the community.
He said, "I get to meet the neatest, coolest
people who are passionate about living here
and specifically about the boat parade. It's
just a wonderful group of people to deal
with. I can't tell you how good a time I have
doing this every year."
Tom Little, who with Harris Bowers
organizes the PGI parade, is a big fan of the
chamber parade. He should be; he was one of
the few participants in the first one 23 years
ago and, like Buuck, sees two parades as a
plus for the community.
He said, "Twenty-three years ago, Tom
Hilteen, Al Rogers and I got togetherand
thought it would be a great idea to put lights
on our boats and light up the harbor. This was
Al Rogers'dream; it grew, and I'm still involved

in that parade to this very day:'
Little had the same thought in 1999, when he
moved to PGI and found his canal totally dark.
"I figured it was a chicken and egg deal," he
said. "If we decorate the boats, they'll light up
their houses."
To say the new parade has been successful
is an understatement. The first, in 2000, drew
16 boats, mostly friends of Little. Last year, 52
boats participated, and at least that many are
expected this year.
"It's interesting from a community perspec-
tive," Little said. "I follow all the other parades
on their websites. In 2004, we achieved the
status of being the largest parade on the Gulf
Coast. No other parade had so many boats."
The audience is just as impressive along the
7.5-mile route. Homeowners throw parties thatare
filled by thousands of people, and the 60 vacant
lots are packed. Little said photos of the crowds
were taken from the boats, and they contained
almost 11,000 watchers just along the canals.
Part of the success is a result of the synergy
and cooperation between the two parades, one
harbor-based and the other inside a canal system.
Little said,"Doug said to me right from the
start,'Let's notfight; let's push both along.: think
the secret to our parade is it's very safe boating
and the great places to watch it close-up. Boaters
aren't exposed to the wind and weather; the
canals are beautifully lit, so navigation is easy."

Sarasota Snow


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Sledding down giant hills of snow. Ice
skating on frozen water. Having snowball
fights with friends. These are all enter-
taining winter activities when you live up
north, but ones that don't usually work in
the temperate Florida climate.
Not to worry, because starting on
December 14, you can enjoy the winter
fun right here on the Suncoast at Sarasota
Snow Fest.
"Snow Fest is our first snow festival
here,"said Lazarus Fernandez, of Spotlight
Events Entertainment. "Last year in North
Port, we had 10,000 people in one day, and
now we're in a central location in Sarasota
County."
The Sarasota Snow Fest will be going on
at the fairgrounds for 10 days, as opposed
to the one day it was open last year.
During the festival, visitors can forget that
the weather outside the fairgrounds is in
the 70s, and just enjoy the fun part about
northern winter weather.
Nine hundred blocks of ice will be
brought into town and fed into an ice
chipper. What comes out on the other side
will be 70 tons of real snow, which will
be used to make four giant snow slides,
and will provide the perfect conditions for
some snowy fun.
"We will have a snow play area, with a
build-your-snowman spot," Lazarus said.
"We'll even have reindeer rides with real
live reindeer and a saddle."


One of the most unique events will be
the snow globe races, which will take
place inside a snow globe bubble. People
will be racing each other inside, with the
snow flying all around them. It is sure to
be not only an amazing experience, but
also a visual spectacle, as will be the whole
fairgrounds area.
"We'll have a light show every evening
from 6:30 p.m. until 10 p.m." Lazarus said.
""Everything will be all lit up."
And of course, no winter celebration
would be complete without a visit from
Santa Claus, who will be present at the
event the entire time. Mrs. Claus will also
make her presence known in her kitchen,
which will feature food vendors serving
delicious holiday treats.
Snow Fest will be a great opportunity
for those from Florida to experience winter
activities and the best part of the snow-
playing in it.
"The original event in North Port was
only one acre, and this one will be on
three acres," Lazarus said. "This year, we're
making it bigger and better."
Snow Fest Sarasota will be held Dec. 14
through Dec. 23 at the Sarasota County Fair-
grounds at 3000 Ringling Blvd., in Sarasota.
The hours will be Monday through Friday 5
until 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, noon
until 10 p.m. Admission and all activities are
completely free, except for ice skate rental and
food and craft vendors.

Hansel and Gretel never had it so good.
On Friday, Dec. 14, visitors to the Potter
Building at the Sarasota Fairgrounds can see
more than 100 lavishly decorated ginger-
bread houses at the Community Youth


Development (CYD) Gingerbread Festival.
CYD, a Sarasota county project that
provides middle and high school students
with activities in drug-free environments,
has been presenting this festival for the past
four years. Karen Bogues, director of the
CYD, says that the festival falls right in line
with the CYD's goal of empowering young


people and challenging them to expand and
develop their skills in safe surroundings.
"The main event of the festival is the
Gingerbread Village"she said."We provide
gingerbread kits to the kids and they create
their own vision of a house. Then we put
them on display and people can come see
the creativity of the young people."
Though there will be some grand
structures made by sponsoring businesses,
some of the most unique houses will surely
be constructed by the elementary, middle
and high school students who will submit
entries.
"Young people just have so much to offer,"
Bogues said. "Some of these groups also do
an amazing job with the land around the
house."
In what is sure to be a lot of fun on the
first two nights of the festival is an "Iron
Chef"-style gingerbread house decorating
contest. On Friday night, the competition
will be between groups from three different
high schools'culinary programs.
"They'll have an hour to create the house
in front of a crowd" Bogues said."They'll


have one secret ingredient that they'll have
to incorporate into their design that they
won't know in advance."
All of the students who have houses on
display will be provided with a free ticket
for themselves and their families, but for
the general public, the price is only $1. And
if you want to spend a little more, and help
support the CYA, all of the houses in the
show will also be for sale after the event is
over.
"We usually sell about 50 percent of the
houses" Bogues said."It's a feel-good event
and it's really a lot of fun."
The CYD Gingerbread Festival will be
held in the Potter Building at the Sarasota
Fairgrounds. The dates are Dec. 14,15 and
16, and hours are Friday and Saturday, from
11 a.m. until 9 p.m., and Sunday, from
11 a.m. until 5 p.m. On the last day, there
will be prizes awarded for the elementary,
middle and high school age groups.

or about Community Youth Development,

Charlotte County Big


Band continues its


USO concert series


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Charlotte County Big Band (CCBB)
will perform a concert series at the Cultural
Center, 2280 Aaron St. in Port Charlotte.
This is the band's eighth season under the
direction of John Johnson. The CCBB is a
traditional jazz/swing band featuring music
made famous by such names as Glenn Miller,
Duke Ellington, Count Basie, etc. The band
features five saxophones, five trumpets, four
trombones, piano, bass, drums and guitar.
Chris Brown Fitzgerald is the featured
singer, emcee and storyteller. Four of the
musicians are also vocalists.
There will be a 50/50 drawing at each
concert, and proceeds from this weeks
concert will be donated to the Port Charlotte
High School band department.
The new concerts are a continuation
of the summer series devoted to the USO
that entertained our troops both here and
abroad. Each concert will feature a tour
tribute to a different city.
On December 17, the band will travel to
St. Louis. The two-hour show will feature
music made famous from the Broadway
musical '"Meet Me in St. Louis;'Swing Era
favorites, and selections for the Christmas
season. Among the songs will be "Leap Frog;'
"In the Mood,""White Christmas',and"The
Christmas Song."
The Jan. 28 show will be musical tour of
San Francisco, a world-renown tourist city.
The city was a hub of influence for jazz,
blues, and rock'n'roll of the hippie
movement.
You'll hear lots of favorites including"I Left
My Heart in San Francisco."
On to Los Angeles for the Feb. 25 show
for tremendous'cool'sounds. Some of the
world's finest musicians recorded in this
famous city. Music will include "Hurray for
Hollywood,"a song first featured in the 1937
movie, "Hollywood Hotel." It has become the
staple soundtrack element of the Academy
Awards ceremonies. Henry Mancini's"Moon
River"will also be featured.
The band will cross the border to Toronto,
Canada for the March 25 show. Enjoy the
band's rendition of the country's national

anthem,"Oh, Canada"and the"Maple Leaf
Rag."
The Toronto show is special to Fitzgerald
since she was raised there. She began
singing at age 10, performed gigs at age 16
for private parties and community events,
and earned a music education degree from
the University of Toronto. Fitzgerald toured
with Billy Eckstein, a popular ballads singer
in the swing era, to South Korea and Thai-
land. She performed in many Toronto clubs.
"I joined the band last year, and I'm
pleased to perform with these talented
musicians. We have lots of fun. The audi-
ences are the greatest, and we feel their
friendly warmth' Fitzgerald noted.
"Chris has a tremendous feel for jazz, and
she improvises as she sings,'Johnson said.
"April in Paris" and"l Love Paris"will be
two of scores of songs featured at the final
show on April 15, a musical tour of the'city
of love' Paris is a culture rich in tradition,
and known as the most visited city in the
world. When the Germans occupied Paris,
playing jazz was forbidden. The liberation by
the Allies brought joy and tears of elation to
Parisians.
Approaching 80 years old, saxophone
player, Ray Kopczyk, a retired U.S. Air Force
Lt. Col. and dentist, is one of the original
CCBB members. He's been playing sax since
age 10, and performed with regional and
polka bands in his native Chicago. Kopczyk
taught dentistry at the University of
Kentucky. But he always played in bands on
weekends.
"I moved to the Keys after retirement.
I couldn't get out of the driveway there
because of the traffic, so I moved here to the
number one-rated place to live,' Kopczyk
said. "Both my sons and a grandson are
dentists, but only one son plays the piano
and bass."
"Our summer concerts were very
successful,'Johnson noted."We hope the
people who missed those will come and
enjoy the new shows."
Tickets are $9 for reserved seats for
members, and $10 for non-members.

Play the rolling of "The Cat"
Come by Bobcat Trail Golf Course in North Port and you'll understand why they
say, "It's a BEAUTIFUL day at Bobcat Trail."
The 6,748-yard, par 71 course was originally designed by architect Lee Singletary and
former PGA champion Bob Tway. It's one of the few courses in Sarasota County to have
been given a 4.5 star rating by Golf Digest. The facility has been fully renovated, from
the greens and bunkers to the enlarged clubhouse. Even the golf cars were updated and
outfitted with GPS. So while your ball may get lost, you'll always know where you are at
Bobcat Trail.
"Our course layout is one of the best you'll find," said Bruce Harris, General Manager
and one of the golf pros at Bobcat Trail. "It has very large, undulating greens with hybrid
Bermuda grass and plenty of wildlife." On any given day, while playing "The Cat,"
golfers might be treated to the sight of osprey, eagles, otters, bobcats, all kinds of bird life
as well as alligators sunning themselves on the banks near the water spots, said Harris.
Bobcat Trail is a semi-private club, which means it has both memberships and open tee
times available to the public. Many of its 220 members live in the beautiful, gated Bobcat
Trail community that surrounds the course.
PGA instructors are happy to give lessons to beginners who want to start the game or
more advanced players who want to improve a part of their game.
The club actively welcomes younger players, too. Their Junior Golf program, for kids
aged six and up, starts June 7 and goes for eight weeks, on Thursdays. Several pro
instructors will help the Juniors learn the game.
Tee times can be made up to seven days in advance, and can be booked 24 hours a
day at http://www.bobcattrailgc.com For questions, to register for the Junior Golf
summer program or for other information, see the website or call 941-429-0500. Bobcat
Trail is located at 1350 Bobcat Trail in North Port.

ROAD TRIP GO


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Are we there yet?
Pine Island Road always seems so long,
whether traveling from Interstate 75 or
U.S. 41 but that first glimpse of the ice-
cream colored buildings at Matlacha, make
the ride worthwhile.
According to the 2000 census, there are
nearly 800 residents. Given the number of
little side streets off the main road, there
might even be a few more, but not too
many more for the colorful little town is on
the smallest of three islands due west of
Matlacha Pass. Little Pine Island is to the
west and Pine Island itself is just beyond
that one. Fishing boats can be seen from
each of the connecting bridges although
it is best to concentrate on the road rather
than the boats when crossing the first
bridge, which is nearly finished but still a
construction zone as this is being written.
It should be finished in the next few weeks.
Matlacha makes up for its diminutive
size with its colorful buildings. Think of
your favorite sherbet or popsicle colors and
there likely will be a building of the same
hue. But the artistic owners didn't stop
there. Polka dots, stripes and contrasting


trim plus equally colorful mailboxes and
signs vie for attention. Whether one is
heading to a tree nursery on Pine Island
or planning a nature walk at the Randell
Research Center in Pineland on the big
island, these colorful buildings are a
powerful lure.
Stop on the north side while heading to
the islands and on the south side coming
back or simply spend the day at Matlacha
which, incidentally, rhymes with "day," not
cha-cha.
One of the shops is appropriately named
the Matlacha Menagerie. That describes
what you can find there about as well as
anything. But check out all the shops. If you
do, reward yourself with homemade ice
cream from Great Licks Ice Cream, which is
in the same building as Island Visions, yet
another of the island's eclectic galleries.
The cute girls who scoop up the tasty treat
will be glad to give you a taste first because
the shop's owner makes all sorts of unusual
flavors and even some combinations. My
favorite is mango but there are legions of
fans for coconut, raspberry, mocha and,
of course, even plain old vanilla although
it is neither plain nor old for flavor and
freshness rule.


If you can't tear yourself away from the
ice cream shop, sit awhile at one of the
ice cream table set-ups in Island Visions.
You will be surrounded by artwork from
floor to ceiling. Mostly by area artists,
the artwork tends to reflect the tropical
surroundings, including parrots and palm
trees. Take home a baby turtle charm for a
bracelet or necklace. Or, choose a painting
of undersea life. Some items in the store
come from faraway places yet still fit in
with the tropical and island theme. More
than 120 additional artists are represented
at Wild Child Gallery. If you visit every shop,
I would not even hazard a guess as to how
many artists and craftsmen are repre-
sented in this charming village.
Other shops cater to the town's other visi-
tors fishermen. A tourist guide I picked
up while there listed 14 bait and tackle
shops. I would bet there actually are more.
There is even a CVS nearby, although
Sthe main supermarket


(Winn Dixie) is on the big island.
Nearly as abundant as bait shops are
nurseries where one can buy tropical fruit
trees, a great variety of palms and other
specimen plants. It is important to check
the hardiness though for many trees that
grow on Pine Island may not survive the
slightly cooler temperatures to be found
to the north in places like North Port and
Venice.
If you get hungry or thirsty, Matlacha
offers several watering holes, restaurants
and fish markets.
Boaters and fishermen have plenty of
launch spots. Hire a guide. Rent a boat
or join fishermen on the Matlacha draw-
bridge. Make sure you have whatever
licenses you need and check to see what is
in season.
For unique events coming up in the next
few months visit www.matlachamariners.
org, which will host a seafood festival
and car show as well as the annual mullet
tossing championship.
From Interstate 75, use Exit 131 south of
Fort Myers.

LIVE MUSIC G O


Tropical Ave. is a good-time party band,
guaranteed to have their customers smiling,
and perhaps even performing.
The band plays it all, R&B Top 40, Latin,
Rock and Island music. Music that has toes
tapping and fans dancing."We don't like to
think of them as fansreported Jeff Hughes,
the leader of the group."You get to know
people and they become a part ofyourfamily.
They become your friends."
Fronted by sultry songstress and flutist,
Jessie Wilson, Tropical Ave. sings everything
from Sinatra to the Black Eyed Peas."We are
a party band,"Wilson noted,who played in
some very notable bands in upstate New
York."This is the best group I've ever been
with. I just show up and have a blast"Other
members of Tropical Ave. include Jeff's wife,
bassist, Rhonda Brown-Hughes, drummer
and vocalist, Tank Martin and Kenny C, lead
vocalist and keyboard player.
Martin, an ordained minister, actually
presided overthe nuptials ofJeffand Rhonda.
"I've been in ministry for 16 years"pointed
out Martin,who had a congregation in South
Carolina until hard economictimes forced him
to close it "Hopefully, eventually, I will be a
pastoragain'" Rhonda returned to performing
with Tropical Ave. a few short months ago,
after breaking away from performing due
to full time work commitments."Rhonda is
actually one of the best bassists in the area.
She routinely has seasoned musicians offering
her bass jobs with their bandsnoted Jeff.
"She has only been playing bass for five years.


She never#44 n instrumentiefore in her A
life."The manwwo prefers to be called Kenny
C., has 43 years under his belt in the music
business, with a number of accomplishments
and memories, including a little tune called
'We Are Family"sung by Sister Sledge. That
song went to number one on the R & B charts
and numbertwo on the pop charts in the U.S.
in 1979 and Kenny C. was right in the middle
of it "I got a call one night to come and do a
recording session for one of the producers. We
did it for a couple of hours and we all went
home"Kenny explained."So I get a call.The
producer said there was something missing,
that he needed some kind of hook, some
kind of lick, something, so I came back in. I
was fooling around with it and there was this
little line. I played it for him and it became the
beginning of the song and the signature line
of"We Are Family."
It is this talented group of musicians that
have come together to form Tropical Ave. See
them perform this Saturday atTarpon Pointe
in Bradenton, ora little closer to home at the
White Elephant in Englewood on Dec. 22. The
band will be at Sharkys in Venice on Dec. 28,and
at the Englewood Elks to ring in the NewYear.
Wheneveryou attend a Tropical Ave. show,
be prepared to be a part of the fun. "We have
people get up and play bongos, tambourines,
maracas,"Jeff explained."In oneway oranother,
were going to getthem involved"added Kenny C
Be a part of the show, and experience the
Tropical Ave. band live. For more information,

Opening lead: Ten of Q

You have bid well to reach an
excellent slam. You have two chances
to get home. Can you spot them?
You need either to find West with
the king of spades or, if not, to be able
to ruff out the king of clubs!
Win the opening lead in hand, cash
the ace of clubs and ruff a club.
Return to dummy with a trump and
ruff another club. When the king
appears, you can claim your slam.
Dummy's queen will take care of
your heart loser and you lose only a
spade.
Should the king of clubs fail to
show up, you have to fall back on the
spade finesse. If that loses as well -
tough luck! You were in a good
slam!

In choosing supplements,

many facets to consider


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE
AND ROACH: I have a
friend, about 57 years old
and in good health, who
takes a lot of supplements,
including yohimbine,
horny goat weed, DHEA,
vitamin E and amino acids.
My question is, What will
this do to his body? ER.
ANSWER: One of the
most frequent questions
I get is about dietary
supplements. People who
believe in them tell me
that supplements make
them feel better and
they're passionate about
them. I research what has
been published in qual-
ity journals to try to shed
some light on whether
those supplements are
truly effective. Although
there is much more good-
quality research than there
used to be, often there isn't
enough to make a judg-
ment. I'd like to make three
important points about
supplements.
First, anytime you take
a medicine, there is a pos-
sibility that the medicine
can improve the condition
it is being taken for due
to the placebo effect.
That means that, as an
individual, you can't ever
tell whether a medicine is
making you feel better due
to its effect on your body
or its effect on your mind.
Placebo effects always
are taken into account in
studies on pharmacologic
medicines, and the Food
and Drug Administration
demands that a medi-
cine be proven more
effective than placebo.
Supplements seldom are
subject to this same kind
of study.
Second, supplements
are not regulated. Nobody
besides the manufacturer is
saying that what is sup-
posed to be in the bottle is
in the bottle. Studies have
shown that, after chemical
analysis, many supple-
ments contain none of the
active ingredient. Some
manufacturers are meticu-
lous about quality; others
are less scrupulous. The
FDA doesn't allow supple-
ments to be promoted for a
specific disease or condi-
tion, but manufacturers use
language to get around this
while making it clear what
they want you to take it for.
Third, supplements,
like all medicines, have
side effects, and may have
unknown effects when
taken in combination
with each other and with
prescription medications.
A colleague of mine had a
patient with catastrophic
liver failure after taking
supplements of echinacea
and goldenseal, two of
oon

the better-known herbal
medications that usually
are considered to be safe.
But just because
something is natural does
not mean it is safe for
everybody. If you are tak-
ing supplements, it's very
important to make sure
whoever is prescribing any
medications for you knows
what you are taking. In
the case presented by the
writer above, there were 11
supplements. The likeli-
hood of a significant inter-
action just among them,
let alone any prescriptions
taken, is very high.
A study published in
2012 suggested that, with
the exception of vitamin
D (which showed some
benefit), vitamin supple-
mentation either failed to
help or seemed to cause
harm for those taking
them. The study had some
flaws, but it certainly made
me less likely to recom-
mend vitamins, at least
for people who get good
amounts of vitamins from
their diet, meaning people
who get the recommended
amounts of fruits and
vegetables.
My last comment is
that yohimbine, at least,
certainly has the potential
for serious side effects. I
certainly have seen both
elevated blood pressure
and insomnia from this
substance, which typically
is used to treat erectile
dysfunction in men.

Garbage backup o


Dear Heloise: I just
wanted to provide you with
a quick tip that I have tried
and love! I place about
2 inches worth of cat-box
filler at the bottom of the
kitchen trash bin. This
way, should the garbage
leak, the filler will absorb
the smell and the mess. -
Jennifer in New Jersey
An added hint to try: Add
baking soda to the filler
for extra odor protection.
I always keep baking soda
on hand because there
are so many uses for it
and it is so cheap! I even
wrote my Heloise's Baking
Soda Hints and Recipes
pamphlet because baking
soda is a must-have staple
in any home. To receive
one, send $5 and a long,
self-addressed, stamped
(65 cents) envelope to:
Heloise/Baking Soda, EO.
Box 795001, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5001. Notice that
your dishwasher smells a
little funny? When not in
use, sprinkle some baking
soda in the bottom and
leave until the next cycle
washes it out. Heloise

Yam I am
Dear Readers: Did you
know that a sweet potato
and a yam are not really
the same food? Both are
root vegetables, but yams
are native to Africa and
typically are available only
in international markets.
There are many different
types of sweet potatoes,
but it is the ones with
orange-colored flesh that
are available in the United
States.


Hints from Heloise

The names "yam" and
"sweet potato" are inter-
changeable. Therefore, the
United States Department
of Agriculture states that
any product labeled a
"yam" must also have a
label that reads "sweet
potato." So, next time you
are in the grocery store and
see a label that reads "yam,"
be assured that it is actually
a sweet potato, since yams
are not commercially grown
in the U.S. Heloise

Flour lumps
Dear Heloise: While
making my creamy broc-
coli, potato and cheese
soup, I used the flour/
water mixture to thicken
the broth. Of course,
there were a few lumps. I
grabbed my potato peeler
(which was already out
and ready for use) to
quickly pull out the lumps.
It worked perfectly! The
lump stays on the end of
the peeler, while the broth
runs down and out of the
area of the peeler where
the blades are located
and back into the soup.
Don't know why I'd never
thought of this before! -

Wife of 14 years learns man
still carries torch for another


DEAR ABBY: I have been
married for 14 years to a
man who had two failed
marriages. I never felt
insecure in my married
life until I read his answers
to a Yahoo Answers poll
that asked, "Do you dream
about the one that got
away?" and, "Have you
found the love of your life?"
My husband responded
that he thinks about her
very often, especially on
her birthday and Valentine's
Day. To the other question
he replied he had found
the love of his life, but the
relationship had ended in
divorce, which he admitted
was his fault.
I know he was talking
about his first wife. I feel
so sad and insecure. Now
I must deal with the fact
that on Valentine's Day his
thoughts are with someone
else. How can I get over
this? I no longer believe
him when he says he loves
me because I have proof
that he hasn't moved on
yet. I can't believe he said
that even now he still
thinks about her. Please
help. SAD HEART IN
SAN JOSE
DEAR SAD HEART: Your
husband posted those
thoughts on a public fo-
rum? Rather than feel hurt
and insecure, you should
be furious. How would he
feel if the person answer-
ing that poll had been you?
(Of course, you would have
had better judgment.)
By now it should be clear
to you that you did not
marry a rocket scientist. You
have my sympathy because
his first marriage has been
over for nearly two decades
and he along with his
obvious shortcomings -
are no longer her problem,
but yours. However, your
pain may lessen if you look
at the bright side: He treats
you well 363 days a year,
and many of the women
who write to me are not so
lucky.
DEAR ABBY: I have been
involved with a man in a
long-distance relationship
for two years. I care about
him very much and I
believe he cares for me.
Things were going great


Dear Abby

until he was devastated by
a downturn in his business.
He had planned to move
here, but was unable to
sell his home. We used to
see each other every two
weeks, but no longer. It has
been almost two months.
He calls once a week, but
nothing else.
We have been close
and he has shared his life,
his worries and personal
information with me. I
haven't pressured him and
I don't need a commitment
now, although I would like
one someday.
Abby, he seems to be
drifting away. Is it OK to
write to him, email him,
send encouraging notes
once a week and continue
to support him? Is it too
much to ask for more
frequent communication
from him? I have offered to
travel the 1,000 miles, but
he has evaded my offer. I'm
not ready to walk away. We
have been great together
and this is difficult for me.
Advice? HOLDING ON
IN COASTAL CALIFORNIA
DEAR HOLDING ON:
It's fine to be supportive,
but don't overwhelm him
right now. You may have
to let this play out in its
own time. Your friend may
have retreated because he's
concentrating his energy
on reviving his business.
He may be licking his
wounds or he may have
met someone, which is
why he discouraged your
visit. That he still calls you
is encouraging.
Because you have known
him for two years, I recom-
mend you simply ASK him
if he's met someone else.
If the answer is no, it will
put your mind at ease. But
if the answer is yes, at least
you'll be clear about what
happened.


"While we look not at the things which are seen, but
at the things which are not seen:for the things which
are seen are temporal; but the things which are not
seen are eternal."-- 2 Corinthians 4:18
Perhaps it is "all in the way that we look at things,"
- but the person willing to write off the eternal in
favor of the temporal is not taking a very good look.
"Look unto me and be ye saved all ye ends of the
earth for I am God and there is none else."
