Hot dog eat-off


SUN PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FENNELL
Clement O'Connor, the winner of the Mad Dogs Hot Dogs eating competition held Saturday, struggles to put
down one of his final hot dogs.


This was not a contest for the weak.
When Mad Dogs Hot Dogs held its eating
competition Saturday in Venice to see who
could eat the most hot dogs in a certain
amount of time, the competitors had to eat
fast while trying not to get themselves sick.
Clement O'Connor went on to win the
contest (and $100) by eating 12 hot dogs in
roughly 10 minutes. But the win came only af-
ter two tie-breaking eat-offs with the eventual


second-place winner, Kevin Martini, who last
won the contest by eating eight hot dogs in 10
minutes two years ago.
Dave Throop took third place.
Despite the inclement weather that kept
many spectators and contestants from
attending, radio DJ Todd Mathews from KIX
Country 92.9 did a live broadcast of the event.
The Mad Dogs Hot Dogs owners are hopeful
that future contests will see a larger turnout.


Area biz hires 75,


seeking more


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
In news that could be a
sign that the local economy is
recovering from the recession,
the area's largest manufacturing
company has hired 75 people
and is looking to hire even more.
The news comes from PGT
Industries, rated as the nation's
leading manufacturer and
supplier of residential impact
resistant windows and doors to
the construction industry. The
company currently employs
more than 1,000 people.
The news from this South
County business means more
local employment, and that
translates into more people
spending money locally.
"We had 11 additional people
start today, so the total hired since
January is now 75," said Alicia
Adams, the Human Resources
director. "We are now at approxi-
mately 1,060 team members.


Pictured is an inside view of PGT
Industries, which has already hired 75
people and is looking to hire more.
'As for the shifts, we have not
added additional ones at this
point, but we have been running
our glass operations on all three
shifts," she said. "New hires are
filling a variety of positions in
departments across the organiza-
tion, including sales, market-
ing, manufacturing and glass

Shane Roessiger's prayer hotline sign and cross in the front yard helped pave
the way for a new sign ordinance.


New sign laws


get initial OK


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
While the Venice Planning
Commission was wrestling with
how to implement a "patch" to
its sign ordinance on Tuesday,
resident Shane Roessiger was in
his yard with a friend replac-
ing a prayer hotline sign and a
20-foot-high cross.
Someone or something
knocked it down this week.
It was Roessiger's acts of faith
last September that triggered


a rewrite of the city's entire
sign ordinance after neighbors
complained. One of those
changes given preliminary ap-
proval Tuesday includes a ban
on all home occupations signs
in most residential areas.
At first, the city followed its
30-year-old ordinance which
bans all signs, except real estate
- and fined him. Roessiger hired
an attorney, who pointed out case
law in favor of her client. The city

Dreams delayed,

group seeks new site


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Venice Challenger Baseball for
disabled youth is looking else-
where to build its Field of Dreams.
The organization, which at-
tracts hundreds of players and
family members to its games,
submitted plans a few years ago


to build three smaller ballfields
on top of fenced-off lime pits
in Pinebrook Park adjoining
a nature trail, but that drew
complaints from neighbors who
want to keep the area pristine.

Police: Boyfriends get clocked in disputes


A Nokomis woman
allegedly struck her
boyfriend of seven years
in the head with a clock
when he confronted her
about staying out all
night with another man.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
The woman claimed
when she came home
she found the boyfriend
banging a clock against
his head and didn't know
why he was doing that.
She said the man who
she spent the night with
witnessed the incident.
Deputies got him on the
phone but the man de-
nied witnessing the event,
saying he had simply
dropped the woman off.
The boyfriend made
accusations of abuse and
said the girlfriend had
been increasingly unpre-
dictable and violent lately.
He was treated on the
scene for a gash on his
scalp.
Jennifer
Jeanette
Holmes, 40,
200 block
Jessica St.,
was arrested
and charged
with
HOLMES domestic
HOLMES battery.
Bond was set at $5,000.

Unhappy breakup
A Venice woman
wouldn't let her boy-
friend go without a fight.
According to aVenice
Police Department report:
The boyfriend contact-
ed several friends to assist
him in gathering some
belongings from his apart-
ment. The couple had an
argument the night before
and he wanted to retrieve
a computer and other
belongings.
He sent his friends to
the apartment with his
keys and waited down
the street at a deli.
His friends called him
and said the girlfriend
had chained the door
shut and refused to allow
them access unless he
showed up to talk to her.

for the following positions:
Maintenance mechanic

The company strongly
supports developing in-
ternal talent, Adams said,
and opportunities abound
following the influx of new
employees.
Career advancement of
existing team members
includes 20 professional
and more than 250 hourly
employees receiving
promotions in just a little
over a year, Adams said.
"We have seen some
promising signs with the
construction market, and
we are gearing up for our
busy season," she said.
Their recently launched
new product, called the
Storefront Commercial
System, is designed for
high pressure applica-
tions, providing impact
resistance and water
intrusion protection. This
new system is proving

beneficial to PGT product
lines, according to Adams.
Marketing services and
products has improved
following the refreshing of
the PGT website with some
new functionality featuring
innovative and interactive
features for consumers and
distributors, Adams said.
At PGT's peak, 2,000
people were employed by
the 25-year-old company,
which occupies 485,000
square feet in the city and
had until 2010 operated a
second facility at Salisbury,
NC. With that closure,
equipment was moved to
Venice and some employ-
ees did transfer.

applying to work at PGT

recanted, dropping the en-
tire matter, after Assistant
City Attorney Wayne Hall
said the existing city code
likely violated Roessiger's
First Amendment rights.
Hall recommended a
total rewrite of the sign
ordinance.
On Tuesday, the city
rolled out the "patch,"
which passed the
Planning Commission
unanimously and goes
next to the city council
for its consideration.
The proposed lan-
guage allows one sign on
each parcel in single-
family residential zoning
districts, and single-fam-
ily lots within planned
zoning districts because
of their similarity.

The sign maybe no
bigger than 4 square
feet a typical real estate
sign. The message must
be noncommercial. The
sign can be two-sided, but
must contain the same
message on each side.
Commissioners wrestled
with the idea of extending
the First Amendment
allowance to multi-family
districts, but in the end
agreed to limit the ordi-
nance's reach only to single-
family zoning districts.
The Supreme Court did
not address multi-family
or duplex situations, Hall
said, making it safer to
restrict the ordinance for
the time being.
"The Supreme Court
found an absolute prohi-
bition is over-reaching,"
Hall said. "They did not
say how big (the signs
should be)," or how many


signs should be allowed.
"That's for you to decide.
... This is our best guess.
"We're voyaging a little
bit out to sea here. How
far we need to go nobody
knows. Right now you
could put up 20 signs.
That's the problem. We
need to do something."

'Home occupation'
signs prohibited
In another section of
the city code, "home oc-
cupation signs" are being
prohibited altogether.
City officials found
a discrepancy in the
current code. In one
section, signs in residen-
tial areas that advertise
a commercial message
like "Painter available"
or "Notary" are prohib-
ited, but the code allows
them "if permissible" in


another section.
The Venice Planning
Commission on Tuesday
blessed the proposal to
eliminate the practice
entirely in residential
neighborhoods and
planned developments
within city limits.
Commercial sign issues,
like what to do with sand-
wich boards, sign-twirlers
and other temporary
signs, will be addressed in
a later rewrite.
The sooner the better,
say staff.
Mayor John Holic
recently chastised code
enforcement for citing
Epiphany Cathedral for
violating the current
sign ordinance.
"Signs have prolifer-
ated," Planning Director
Chad Minor said. "It's
become a nightmare for
code enforcement.

and thinks that overall
that's the best and most
appropriate location for
the ballfields," orga-
nizer Steve Boone said.
"However, Challenger
can't wait forever.
"They're crowded out
of Chuck Reiter Park.
Given the state of affairs
with Wellfield being on
hold, Challenger has
been looking around,
seeing what other areas
might be available."
Boone said there are
a number of sites being
looked into, like YMCA-
owned property near Taylor
Ranch Elementary School.
His comments come
on the heels of a drawn
out discussion about the
future of Wellfield Park.
City leaders learned
recently that Pinebrook
Park, the nature trail north
of the Wellfield Sports
Complex that some resi-
dents are trying to keep

free of development, was
never brought into the city
code technically as a park
or preserve.
City Attorney Bob
Anderson said in a writ-
ten opinion that the area
known as Pinebrook Park
is actually an extension
of undeveloped land
within Wellfield Park.
Wellfield is a popular
sports complex with
numerous ballfields and
a police gun range.
"No one has produced
any documentation


which demonstrated
that Pinebrook Park is a
dedicated or designated
park within the city parks
system," Anderson said.
"All documentation
assembled and reviewed
indicated that Pinebrook
Park is nothing more than


a portion of Wellfield Park
... subject to all the provi-
sions of Chapter 46 of the
code of ordinances."
Park designation or not,
numerous signs today can
be found with "Pinebrook
Park" on them in and
around the park.
The discussion isn't
just splitting hairs.
Given that Challenger
is proposing its ballfields
in a sports complex
means there technically
would be no change in
use of the land and
likely no requirement to
go to referendum.
The City Council is
split on the issue. Friends
of Pinebrook Park,
dedicated to saving the
undeveloped area, and
the mayor have said the
issue should perhaps
be decided by the city's

Renovation leads to opening of Ramada Hotel Venice


STAFF REPORT

Following an estimated
$8 million renovation
by owner Dr. Gary
Kompothecras over a two-
year period, the Holiday
House hotel was taken
down to the shell, walls
were replaced and electrici-
ty and plumbing upgraded.
Everything, including the
flooring, was replaced.
The difference is
dramatic, and with the
renovation came a new
name the Ramada
Hotel Venice, located at
425 U.S. 41 Bypass North
across from TJ Maxx.
"(It) is open and on the
weekends, we have been
full and phone activity is
amazing," said Stephen
Svecak, general manager.
"As soon as we opened,
Wyndham Worldwide
global distribution system
operating Ramada hotels
worldwide linked us to
all Internet sites, travel
agents and tour groups."
In the rebuild to
provide 18 suites, the
number of guest rooms
was reduced to 146.
All double rooms have
queen beds, upgraded


bedding and amenities
including refrigerators,
microwaves and flat
screen TVs with premium
TV channels.
Suites have dishwashers,
stocked with glass- and
dishware for weeklong
guests and there is a
laundry facility with ample
washers and dryers.
"The theme is a ca-
sual contemporary and a
grand opening is planned
in April," said Jeannie
Gomes, director of Sales
and Marketing. "The
Sarasota Convention and
Visitors Bureau are very
excited about having more
meetings and accommo-
dation space in Venice.
"We now have a
South Beach-style pool,
50,000 gallons, heated
with beach entry and a
hot tub for 12 people,"
Gomes said. "Adjoining
is a new state-of-the-art
fitness center, confer-
ence room and outdoor
restaurant facilities."
Encompassing three
components, the new
Waves Grill is a full service
restaurant, seating 143
diners in a casual contem-
porary atmosphere. Soft


seating areas with sofas
and cushions create the
casual intimate atmo-
sphere ideal for guests to
host small gatherings of
friends enjoying appetiz-
ers or for parties of 10
celebrating a birthday.
For relaxing or an
outdoor catered recep-
tion with all doors sliding
open is Waves Lounge
and Sports Bar, seating
80 diners. Further, the
Splash Pool Bar accom-
modates 30 people.
Serving a contemporary
American continental
cuisine with four nightly
specials, Waves opens at
7 a.m. serving breakfast,
lunch and dinner until
9 p.m. weekdays and later
on weekends. Gomes said
they are looking forward
to bringing back in
April or May the Sunday
brunch, apparently a
neighborhood favorite.
The large banquet
area seats 550 diners at
round tables and can be
divided into five rooms,
each having a different
seating capacity. A dance
floor and staging in the
ballroom are versatile
enough to be brought

outside when needed.
Gomes is chairing
The Weddings of Venice
committee this year for the
annual wedding show on
June 9. She believes this is
a perfect location with the
courtyard ideal for outdoor
ceremonies. She even
offers an event designer.
"Venice just became a
bicycle-friendly city, and


we are looking to market
to cycle clubs throughout
the United States as we
are close to the Legacy
Trail," she said.
Captiva Beach Resort at
Siesta Key and Hibiscus
Suites Inn at the Gateway
to Siesta Key are owned
by Kompothecras and
have all been fully remod-
eled and are managed by


A-Z Hospitality.
"We have a preliminary
opening staff of 30,
including the chef, and
we may have banqueting
staff coming in as sub-
contractors for specific
events," said Gomes,
who anticipates it will
increase with people on
a part-time basis as the
hotel gets busier.


New Realtor board president optimistic for 2013


STAFF REPORT

"We are very confident
the market is going to im-
prove, aside from the fact
prices will go up, but we
are not going to see huge
increases, because there
are still bank-owned, short
sales out there and people
selling their houses just to
unload them," said Diane
Fuchs, the new president
of the Venice Area Board
of Realtors.
Although interest rates
are at historic lows, the
prediction is they will go up
a tiny bit, but at 4.5 percent,
they remain low.
"My goal for 2013 is to
try to get more commu-
nity involvement, showing
we as Realtors all live in
this community and are
not just sales people," said
Fuchs, who is a Broker
Associate with Prudential
Florida Realty. "We work
here, and we care about
our community.
"We are not just here
to sell your house but to


better the community with
a lot of activities we provide
and participate in this area.
In classes, we teach our
Realtors how to better help
the public who may be
upside down in short sale
and foreclosure properties.
"When seniors lose a
spouse and have to go
into a senior retirement
community, we have
education classes for the
senior real estate specialist
designation to understand
those citizens," she con-
tinued. 'Additional care is
needed by just speak-
ing slower, being patient,
showing and explaining
how we can help them get
maximum property mar-
ket value and the benefits
of the Internet, of which
many are unaware."
Ask for a senior real es-
tate Realtor who will help
with facilities to go to,
marketing property and
the sale of home contents,
she suggested. Possibly
bringing in a consultant
will assist them with an
estate sale and in using


other people in senior
services who can help
them with the transition.
For a single person
seeking a safe, gated
community, they advise
them and give examples
of other people who have
been assisted.
Fuchs sees this new
position as an opportunity
to make her a better person
by giving her better insight
on how the real estate busi-
ness operates, especially at
board level for the Venice
Area Board of Realtors.
Further, she has taken
the opportunity to sit on
several state committees.
She looks forward to
taking members into the
new building because it
indicates to the public
that Realtors have
confidence in the market
by spending money on
a new headquarters.
Relocation will be neces-
sary during construction
when the existing build-
ing is torn down and the
new building completed.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A


President's Day
seemed a fitting day
for Molly Kraut to hold
a grand opening of a
business that only sells
goods made in the
United States.
Kraut, the owner of
US Mart, located at
1740 East Venice Ave.,
in Villa Venezia Plaza,
had celebrations that
began on Friday with
the ribbon-cutting
ceremony and contin-
ued Saturday, Sunday
and Monday.
In the fully decked-
out store, customers
enjoyed looking for gifts
and souvenirs among
the general store
items, including family
clothing, pet supplies,
cleaning products and
kitchen and house-
wares products all
made in the USA.
"We saw the U.S.
flags with'Think USA
and decided to come
in," said Jim Bradbury,
who with his wife from
Gloucester, Va., was vis-
iting friends in Venice.


Is it really expensive living in the US?


By Roger Button
BUSINESS COLUMNIST
EDITOR'S NOTE: Businews
columnist Roger Button just
returned from vacation in
New Zealand and wrote this
column.
Travel not only broadens
the mind but also helps us
realize how fortunate we are
to manage our standards of
living at reasonable prices.
Returning recently from
a visit to New Zealand, a
lovely country with the most
hospitable people, I found
myself thinking of why we
complain so much about
our costs of living.
Before sharing with you a
few examples of comparative
pricing between New Zealand
and the U.S., I would point
out the value of the U.S. one
dollar is NZ$1.18, a rather
small increase favoring the
NZ at 18 cents.
Two prime examples
immediately come to mind:
1) Gas at the pump costs


between NZ$2.14 to 2.18
per liter, which equates to
around U.S. $9. 2) A paper-
back priced at U.S. $12.98
when purchased at New
Zealand local and airport
bookstores cost NZ$24.99.
Meals in a reasonable
quality family restaurant
similar to Bonefish Grill,
Red Lobster or Olive Garden
are slightly more expensive,
depending upon choice. For
example, a prawn cocktail
with small shrimps on a bed
of lettuce was NZ$12.50, and
a bowl of seafood chowder
was NZ$16.50.
The main dish, our entr6e,
a ribeye steak with two
prawns and mushrooms,
totaled NZ$39.40.
The biggest surprise I
had was enjoying three very
small glasses of local wine
with dinner. When I was
given the check, I learned
they cost $37.50!
Fortunately, I usually have a
two-glass red wine dinner, the
least expensive. The wine was


supplied in small glasses and
cost NZ$9. Even Australians
visiting their sister country
expressed surprise at paying
at least half as much for their
own wines when drank in
New Zealand.
A pot of tea in a park caf6
cost NZ$9, and the typical
European-style sandwich
with one single thin slice of
ham or cheese, or meat and
lettuce with tomato, aver-
aged from NZ$9 to NZ$12.
An explanation may be
the current minimum wage
is NZ$15, and that wage is
soon anticipated to increase
to NZ$18.50. General sales
tax, which seemed to apply
to almost all purchases,
is 15 percent. All in-store
purchases from pharmacy to
clothes and meals are priced
to include this tax.
For those who want to
enjoy a visit to this wonder-
ful country, I give you this
good news there is no
tipping required for any
service whatsoever!

Principal reflects on

Black History Month


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
NORTH PORT-
February is Black History
Month, a time set aside
to recognize black
Americans for their con-
tributions to the nation.
For Linda McCloud,
principal of Cranberry
Elementary School, Black
History month is good
- "I was glad when we
had the month, because
I felt there wasn't enough
being taught" but she
thinks students should
be educated about the
accomplishments of black
Americans all through the
year, not just during one
month of it.
"When I was a teacher
at Glenallen (Elementary),
I used to just really
emphasize the famous
black inventors and scien-
tists ... but I didn't use
Black History Month as a
time to focus on famous
black Americans. I did it
throughout the year, no
matter if it's February or
if it's March or October,"
she said.
McCloud said a little
Internet research will
reveal black Americans
who have excelled in all
sorts of areas.
"If you're talking about
scientists, share about
all scientists, no matter if
they're black or Hispanic.
... If you're teaching


about the Underground
Railroad, you shouldn't
wait until Black History
Month to teach about
Harriet Tubman and
Frederick Douglass.
Integrate it into whatever
you're doing."
She said that approach
is one she encourages her
staff at Cranberry to take.
McCloud said it is also
important to keep the
level of history at one the
students can understand,
depending on their age.
"Like now, with having
a black president. If you're
going to talk about presi-
dents, share that (Barack
Obama) is our first black
president," she said, or
bring up black astronauts
when teaching a unit
about space exploration.
"From what I see when I
walk around classes, I see
teachers bring up famous
black Americans because
it's related to what they're
doing, not by the month.
That's how I like to see it."
She said she also raised
her children the same
way.
"I'm glad we have the
month, but we're all
people, so just bring them
on in," McCloud con-
cluded. "Whether they're
black, white or Hispanic
... we should just be
talking about all kinds of
people and their accom-
plishments every day."

Man gets probation for killing puppy


By MERAB-MICHAL FAVORITE
STAFF WRITER

An Englewood man
was sentenced to a
year of probation after
he pleaded no contest
Tuesday to killing his
neighbor's Jack Russell
terrier.
Retired firefighter and
deputy sheriff Paul Peter
Roskowski, 76, of the
1100 block of Brown St.,
was arrested in May after
authorities said he killed
Ginger, a 7-month-old
terrier, and threw her
body into a canal.
Roskowski's at-
torney, Burt Stutchin,
asked 20th Circuit
Judge George Richards
Tuesday at the Charlotte
County Justice Center in
Punta Gorda to reduce
the original felony
animal-cruelty charge
to a misdemeanor, since


the suspect had no prior
record.
Richards sentenced
Roskowski to the maxi-
mum penalty for both
misdemeanor charges -
he was given 12 months
of probation for cruelty
to animals, to be served
concurrently with six
months of probation for
illegally disposing of a
dead animal.
Roskowski, who de-
clined to comment, also
must pay the dog's owner,
Jason Mazzo, $700 in
restitution, must donate
$150 to the American Red
Cross, and must donate
$200 to help fight domes-
tic violence. The amounts
all must be paid within 10
months. Roskowski also
must undergo a mental
health evaluation.
Roskowski is forbidden
to have contact with
Mazzo or his wife.


According to Charlotte
County Animal Control,
Roskowski walked
onto Mazzo's property
around 9 a.m. April 3
and entered the lanai
where the dog was kept.
He bashed in the dog's
head with a blunt object,
and then put its body in
a trash bag with a brick
and threw it into the
canal behind his home,
authorities said.
Mazzo, who couldn't
be reached for comment
Tuesday, previously told
the Sun that the dog
was a gift for his family.
Mazzo's wife reportedly
discovered the animal in
the canal April 6.
Lt. Brian Jones of
Animal Control said
people facing animal-
cruelty charges typi-
cally receive probation or
community service.
"We feel that, a lot of

times, the outcomes of
these cases are not con-
sistent with the original
act," Jones said. "Some
of these animal-cruelty
cases are really heinous."
Jones said Animal


Control has begun to
push for jail time for
certain cases. He said
his department charged
29 people with animal
cruelty last year, which
is more than double the


average number.
"Probation is just a
slap on the wrist for
some of these crimes,"
Jones said.

Cat groups offering free 3-day spay-neuter service


PROVIDED BY THE
VENICE CAT COALITION

A three-day spay-neu-
ter blitz to sterilize local
cats will occur Feb. 23-
25, as cat rescue groups
collaborate to increase
spay-neuter surgeries
prior to the upcoming
kitten season, when the
felines overwhelm area
shelters.
The Venice Cat
Coalition and St. Francis
Animal Rescue are
co-sponsoring the clinic,
led by Dr. Andrea Bivens
using her new 24-foot
veterinary mobile care


clinic the "Medi-
Waggin'" to conduct
the surgeries. The mobile
care clinic will accept 20
cats per day by appoint-
ment and is open to
feral, free-roaming, stray
or owned cats. Kittens as
young as 8 weeks of age
can safely be spayed/
neutered if they weigh
2 pounds or more,
using new cutting-edge
techniques known as
"pediatric" surgeries.
"A donor made a gen-
erous contribution to the
Venice Cat Coalition dur-
ing its current Valentine's
Day fundraising


campaign, which has
now allowed us to start
this new clinic," said
Theresa Foley, executive
director of the cat coali-
tion. "The donor's money
will make a direct impact
on cat overpopulation.
St. Francis is also provid-
ing financial support and
the three-day staging
site for Dr. Bivens'
Medi-Waggin'."
Jan Chapman of St.
Francis Animal Rescue
said, "Our current
spay-neuter programs
are not able to keep up
with the need for more
spays and neuters. Both

The upcoming event
has been named the
"Mickelson Cat Clinic,"
to recognize Venice resi-
dents Joyce and Harvey
Mickelson, who tirelessly
managed the fundraising
campaign for the cat co-
alition. Sufficient funds
have been raised to hold
a second three-day clinic
in March.


The Medi-Waggin' is a
state-of-the-art veteri-
nary mobile care clinic
with X-ray, surgical
and full lab services on
board.
"Being able to use our
new Medi-Waggin' mo-
bile care clinic to help re-
duce unwanted litters is
just one of the benefits of
having a clinic that can
go where it's needed and
not be stuck in a fixed
building," Bivens said. "It
gives us more freedom to
help our clients and the
community."
Bivens will be avail-
able in Venice during the


days of the Mickelson
Cat Clinic to see her
patients for a wide range
of veterinary services.

clinic and services, call

book a surgery appoint-
ment, call the St. Francis

Mote may become research leader


By GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA Mote
Marine Laboratory has
advanced the world's
knowledge about ocean
ecology since it was
founded in Placida in 1955,
and it's poised to become
an international center in
the global effort to save the
oceans in the rest of this
century.
That's according to both
Dr. Kumar Mahadevan,
who served as Mote's presi-
dent for the past 27 years,
and Dr. Michael Crosby,
Mote's senior vice presi-
dent for research, who is
set to replace Mahadevan
when he retires in May.
"We have been very
engaged on an inter-
national level for many
years," said Crosby in an


interview Friday. "If we pull
it together in a strategic
way, we could establish
Mote as an international
center for marine science
diplomacy."
That vision entails
fostering international ma-
rine science partnerships
to bring different countries
together to improve shared
marine resources, he said.
Crosby, who came
to Mote in 2010 after
serving as research vice
president at George Mason
University, pointed out
that in the last couple of
years, Mote worked on co-
operative research projects
with Israel, the University
of Jordan and Chinese,
Japanese and Caribbean
groups.
Meanwhile, Mote
remains committed to re-
search on Charlotte Harbor


and sharing that knowledge
within area communities,
he said. Local fishermen
often provide insight that
gets missed by scientists,
he said.
Also, the ecology of
Charlotte Harbor has les-
sons for the entire Gulf of
Mexico and the Caribbean.
Crosby said sharks, tarpon
and other "highly mobile"
species that rely on the
harbor during periods
often disperse far and
wide. "We recently had a
turtle return to us from
Portugal," he recalled.
"Charlotte Harbor itself
can be used as an example,
a model," he said.
Mote has also positioned
itself to be "in the leading
edge on research," added
Mahadevan.
For example, Mote's
200-acre Aquaculture Park


in eastern Sarasota County,
which is used to experi-
ment on how to restock a
variety of marine fishes,
is "kind of leading the
(restocking) charge in the
nation," he said.
Mahadevan joined
Mote in 1978 as a senior
scientist. He served as
CEO since 1986. He will
continue as president
emeritus, according to
Mote officials.
When he became CEO,
Mote had 52 employees
and a budget of $2 mil-
lion. Today, there are 192
staffers including 31 Ph.D.
scientists plus 1,600 vol-
unteers, and the lab has a
$17 million budget.
Mote's lab and aquarium
attraction are located
on 10-acre City Island in
Sarasota. Mote also oper-
ates research stations on


Pine Island in Charlotte
Harbor and Summerland
Key in the Florida Keys, and
has satellite offices in Punta
Gorda and Boca Grande.
Mahadevan began his
career investigating how
man was disturbing the
balance of tiny marine
creatures at the bottom of
the food chain.
Ocean acidification is
emerging as the next big
ecological concern, and
Mote has been gearing up
to study its effects, he said.
The waters are becom-
ing more acidic because
they're absorbing carbon
dioxide, which is helping
to mediate an overload
in the atmosphere, he
said. The change in water
chemistry affects some
marine life.
Yet Mahadevan remains
optimistic. He points out


the world's recognition
of the need to reduce
pollution has grown since
Rachel Carson wrote
"Silent Spring" about eco-
logical toxins in the early
1960s. He also pointed to
the spread of knowledge
fueled by the Internet.
"We've made a lot of
progress," he said. "The
U.S. has led the world in
doing things to control our
waste output. And we're
doing (urban) develop-
ment in more environ-
mentally preferred ways."
Both Mote executives
said their center remains
"excited" about a proposal
to build an aquarium in
Punta Gorda. However,
Mote won't commit to
constructing the facil-
ity until after a feasibility
study is completed.

County school district facing $8M shortfall


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

The shortfall the
Sarasota County school
district is facing is worse
than anticipated.
School Board mem-
bers were given backup
material late Friday for
a budget workshop. The
revised estimates show
the board will have to
come up with about
$8 million in cuts to the


district's General Fund.
"I was reading the
backup material on Friday
night and realized it's about
$2 million more than what
I thought," School Board
member Caroline Zucker
said Monday, adding
even earlier estimates had
placed the deficit as high as
$13 million.
The needed cuts won't
reach that figure because
of state funding coming
to the district and the


fact that the board has
reduced some of the
district's overhead costs.
Zucker said she isn't sure
what fellow board mem-
bers will decide to slash.
"The figures are all new
and we have a lot of work
ahead of us," she said.
The district's current
capital budget for 2013-14
is $104,304,186. Although
based on a five-year
projection, the School
Board only approves one


year at a time.
The School Board will
also review its capital
budget.
Backup materials
relating to the capital
budget outlines priorities
they would like to fund,
as well as projects
currently under way,
including the completion
of rebuilds at Venice High
School, Sarasota County
Technical Institute,
Sarasota High School and


Booker High School.
Several schools will see
the renovation of their
HVAC (heating, ventila-
tion and air-conditioning)
systems. Also included is
the construction of the
$1.3 million South County
Transportation Complex,
a school bus depot to
be built with impact fee
money near the corner
of Toledo Blade and Price
boulevards in North Port.
In 2013-14, the


district's capital budget
also allows for the pur-
chase of 30 new buses
and replacement of some
fleet vehicles; increases
funds related to school
security, including fund-
ing, access control and
infrastructure sustain-
ability; and reallocates
funds due to changing
technological needs,
namely to address an
increase in bandwidth.

By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY
- If Sarasota County
Administrator Randall
Reid has his way with the
upcoming Fiscal Year 2014
county budget, employees
of Sarasota County could
see their first pay increase
in nearly five years.
"The budget we're
building is based on being
able to provide up to a
3 percent compensation to
employees," Reid said at a
recent budget workshop.
"Many of the increases
that we'd have would have
to be negotiated with our
union, as they're often not
in line with the budget
time frame, but will make


sure that we set aside
money up front for our
employee compensation
for our nonbargaining
employees."
The average salary for
the roughly 3,200 govem-
ment employees in the
county is approximately
$49,857. A 3 percent
increase would push
the average salary up
$1,495, and make the new
average about $51,352.
Sarasota County chief
financial planning officer
Steve Botelho said the
cost of the increases if
approved by the County
Commission would
not be known until
June, when they will be
presented during the
county's summer budget


workshops. He said at
this point it's too early
to speculate on any cost
numbers.
"Until May, when we
balance the budget and
run a payroll work scope
in our system, we really
won't know what any of
those numbers truly are,"
Botelho said in regard
to what potential pay
increases would cost.
Merit increases for some
nonbargaining employees
would come out of the
county's General Fund,
depending on which
departments they work
for in the county. The
General Fund has grown
significantly since 2007
due to the county collect-
ing more money than it


has spent. For FY2013,
the adopted General Fund
had a balance of more
than $226 million. It is not
projected to suffer a short-
fall until at least FY 2016,
according to calculations
provided by the county.
"Our budget picture
continues to be positive
because last year was
where we started to
turn the corner and our
projections were looking
better," Botelho said. "I'd
say it's the continuance of
an economy that's getting
stronger."
Last summer, the
County Commission ap-
proved a lump-sum bonus
of $1,000 for all of the
county's 1,023 nonunion,
technical and professional


employees, to be included
in the 2012-13 fiscal year
budget. The estimated
total cost of the payments
was $1,477,000, including
taxes.
In doling out the pay-
ments which Botelho
said were $1,000 net of
taxes, meaning taxes
were paid by employ-
ees approximately
$705,000 came out of the
county's General Fund
and $768,000 from other
funds. The bonuses were
paid just prior to the holi-
days and went toward the
employees' 2012 salary.
Firefighters, firemed-
ics, paramedics, EMS
supervisors, lieuten-
ants, training captains
and battalion chiefs,


whose contracts are
negotiated with the
International Association
of Firefighters, along with
employees represented
by Teamsters and ATU,
were not included in the
bonus payments. County
administration, commis-
sioners, directors and the
county attorney were not
eligible for the payment.
"We opted that we really
wanted that bonus for our
employees," Botelho said.
Botelho said manag-
ers, who last saw a pay
increase six years ago,
likely will be included
with the increases. He
said that will be discussed
further during the June
workshops.

No decision on domestic partner registry


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
Some 6.8 million homes
across the country are
maintained by domestic
partnerships, according
to former city of Sarasota
commissioner Ken Shelin,
who thinks that a domestic
partnership registry would
be a great fit for the city.
Shelin has been touting
the benefits of such an ar-
rangement across Sarasota
County over the last year,
finding success in Venice
and the city of Sarasota,
where an ordinance
has been in effect since
October. Venice is currently


crafting its ordinance,
Shelin said.
Shelin pleaded with the
commission to direct city
staff to start writing an or-
dinance similar to the one
in effect in Sarasota, but
said he was not surprised
when commissioners took
no action following his
presentation.
The city of Sarasota's
ordinance allows for do-
mestic partners to declare
each other as their health
care surrogate and make
funeral decisions, as well as
being able to participate in
education decisions for any
dependent. Shelin calls the

ordinance "gender neutral,"
and said it benefits same-
sex, opposite-sex and older
couples.
The Sarasota ordinance
was based, in part, on
other ordinances currently
in effect in places like the
cities of Orlando and
Fort Lauderdale. Since its
inception in October, 100
couples have registered at
$30 per couple, according
to city of Sarasota spokes-
woman Jan Thomburg.
Commissioners did not
comment on the request at
the commission meeting.
Mayor Linda Yates put the
presentation on the agenda


VILLAGE

after a previous vote to hear
Shelin's thoughts dead-
locked in January. Yates
could not be reached for
comment Friday.
Commissioner Jim
Blucher previously voiced
his concerns over the city
being involved with some
of the legal ramifications
of an ordinance that would
give domestic partners
end-of-life rights, among
others, much like the
rights enjoyed by married
couples. Thomas Logie, a
Harvard-educated attorney,
voiced similar concerns
over the proposed ordi-
nance, saying that the city


should wait to see what
happens on the state level
before making the plunge
locally.
Logie said Sarasota's
ordinance is incomplete,
and worries that Blucher's
concerns are just the "tip of
the iceberg."
"We're dealing with the
expense of drafting the
ordinance, the expense of
running the registry and
litigation that might arise
from registrants of the
registry," he added.
Shelin sarcastically said
that if someone is against
the ordinance proposal,
then they wouldn't have


time to be "confused by the
facts," but there were far
more people who spoke
in favor of the ordinance
Monday than against it.
Patrick Eaton, a North
Port resident who spoke
during public comment,
said that he and his
partner have been raising
a son for eight years. The
ordinance would allow for
them to care for each other
in situations of health
issues.
"I can't imagine not
being allowed to be with
my partner in the hospital,"
Eaton said.

OUR VIEW


Hunt results defang the python hype


All this hoopla and what do
we get? A lousy 68 Burmese
pythons?
Sheesh.
With the results of the state's first
Python Challenge in the books, we
have to wonder: What happened
to the tens of thousands of reptiles
thought to be slithering through the
Everglades?
Were they ever there? Are they
still there? Did they die off in winter
freezes? Have they moved elsewhere?
Were the hunters who participated
in the month-long Python Challenge
poorly equipped or poorly trained?
Whatever the reason, we can't
help feeling a little let down after


all the hype about the Great Reptile
Invasion of South Florida of the past
decade.
State wildlife officials put their best
spin on the unimpressive numbers
last weekend, when they announced
the results of the official hunt, which
ended Feb. 10.
"In our view that number ... was an
unprecedented number of samples
that will help us answer questions
about pythons and make us more
effective at tackling this problem,
removing them from the system.
We going to learn so much," said
NickWiley, executive director of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.


Oh, come on.
Nearly 1,600 people signed up for
the month-long python hunt. And we
get a crummy 68?
In 2010, some experts put the
state's python population as high
as 30,000. More than 1,200 had
been captured and removed in
the Everglades from 2000 to 2010.
Projections were alarming, consider-
ing the invasive pythons lay as many
as 100 eggs at a time and thrive in a
hot, wet environment.
(Pythons were even spotted in the
Myakka State Forest off River Road.
The local sighting prompted one ex-
pert biologist to predict that we might
see a population of more than 2,000 in


the Myakka by now.)
National media weighed in and the
publicity exploded. It grew into such
a fever that the Legislature in 2010
banned the import, breeding and sale
of pythons, Nile monitor lizards, green
anacondas and four other big reptile
species.
So, we expected a few more.
If the low numbers actually mean
there are fewer pythons than feared
in the Everglades, that's good news.
Pythons prey on smaller, native spe-
cies and can decimate the established
ecosystem. They are undesirable
visitors.
Still, after all the hype, we can't help
feeling a bit deflated.


Venice news


getting interesting


Things are getting a little
more interesting nowadays.
Mayor John Holic has
announced that he will be
in the next mayoral race,
although I doubt there is any-
one willing to challenge him
this time around; the Circus
Arena has been declared
hazardous, with a 60-day
demolition threat hung over
this historic place; and we
have ourselves a brand-new
city attorney.
Personally, I have no issue
with the mayor announcing he
will run for office again. I think
Venice will be better for him
making that decision. I am not
sure how he convinced Mrs.
Mayor that this was a good
idea, though, as he is always
out and about.
In any event, you have to
admire his negotiating skills
and be thankful that he is on
our side when there is negoti-
ating to be done on our behalf.
Our mayor has proven to be a
talented leader and a strong,
positive voice for Venice. He
gives new meaning to the word
"communication," and on top
of that, he really is a nice guy.
Good luck, Mr. Mayor; run
strong, sir.
So, what does designating
the old Circus Arena a hazard
with the threat of demolition
after 60 days really mean to
Venice? Some would argue it
means tearing down an eye-
sore and creating something
new; others would argue that
this meaningful part of history
deserves to be revived for the
enjoyment of generations to
come.
There are some who view
the issue as ammunition


to use against the current
administration and are
bombarding the air with
constant negative attention.
Then there are those who
don't care either way; their
biggest hope is just that we
get it settled.
No matter where you stand
on the issue, one thing is
certain: We are getting close
to something happening. I
urge everyone to take one final
positive look at the potential
of this site and all that comes
with saving that piece of
history. I know that we could
easily walk away from it, let it
be torn down and go on about
life. But good things are often
not easy to spot; you have to
have vision.
A new city attorney auto-
matically means change and
all that comes with it. There
are going to be awkward
moments during the transi-
tion, like when you buy a
new car but don't read the
owner's manual. When you
get it home you start fumbling
for switches for this and that,
creating frustration for you
and for the salesperson who
gets your multiple calls.
But in this case the manual
more than likely has been
read, and when we run into
those moments where the
switch can't be found or there
is an awkward moment, Bob
Anderson will be there to
keep the momentum going. I
have a feeling that even after
he retires, Bob will be helping
us.
Bob, thank you for your
many years of service, your
commitment and your wis-
dom. We appreciate all you
have done and wish you well
as you embark on the next
phase of your journey.
Out with old and in with
new is not always the right
answer, but when we decide
to opt for the new, let's all
keep an open mind and give
it a chance. If not, things will
grow even more interesting.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Trying to save arena is City needs to be proactive
just not worth it about Arena


Editor:
The Circus Arts Foundation
certainly has worked hard
and has a wonderful passion
to save the circus tradition
and a building that can seat
thousands which is a unique
asset for a town our size.
I applaud their zeal.
Unfortunately, they only
have $40,000 after three years
toward a goal of $12 million.
Last year, they had $50,000. It
is unrealistic to think they will
raise even enough to replace
the dangerous roof, that being
around $175,000.
Yet trying to save a building
way beyond its prime is just
not worth it. The building
is over 50 years old and in
terrible condition. No formal
engineering study has been
done but now it is apparent
that it is time to tear it down
and do something that would
both fit FAA requirements and
be a much nicer entrance to
the island.
The Circus group might join
other bright minds on how to
build something grand at that
location. That spot might well
be a better place for a confer-
ence hotel or other business
that would work well with an
airport.
The suggestion has been
made to simply remove the aw-
ful roof and asbestos and wood
structures, leaving the steel
girders and cement pad to be
used as an amphitheater. In my
opinion, that would perpetuate
the eyesore.
Not only that, but a previ-
ous group looked at an
amphitheater at the airport
and it was determined that
airport and traffic noise was
not optimal for outdoor
concerts, let alone meeting
FAA requirements.
It is time to stop studying
how to save all or part of it and
quickly move on to get rid of
a danger and eyesore and put
good minds to work on how
best to use this prime space.
Bob Vedder
Venice


In regards to the future
of the Circus Arena, it is my
feeling that the city should be
more proactive on this issue,
commissioning an indepen-
dent feasibility study of the
arena as a site for circuses;
concerts; various and sundry
performances that will be too
big for the new high school
auditorium; certain sporting
events, etc.
The new study can be a
comparison with a study that
the Circus Arts group has not
presented to the city, and
a comparison would be of
interest.
That approach might indi-
cate the city should invest in
rehabilitating the usable part of
the arena, involving the private
sector, a profit or nonprofit,
such as GCCF, Circus Arts
Foundation, perhaps a private
production company, etc.
It is my thought that ad-
ditional management skills
might be necessary, perhaps a
full-time person reporting to
Jim Hagler or the city manager,
as the Council sees fit.
There has been some
progress, according to Orlando
Bevington's letter. The effort
has raised $50,000 (I'm not
sure if that has been spent
in part or entirety) and some
improvements to the grounds
have been noted. Certainly,
the volunteer spirit has been
demonstrated and can be
expected to surface, given a
new plan.
The project has sponsored
two circuses to spend about
three weeks each in Venice,
and while I am not sure about
attendance at the recent shows,
the owner of the first said he
drew 30,000, which I subjec-
tively discounted to 20,000
based on the attendance I
witnessed at only two events.
Either way, that is a lot of
people for Venice, equal to the
entire population and so it
seems worth studying for the
future.
Starting when I was mayor,
we felt a good approach was to


let the Foundation see if they
could organize an effort to save
the Arena and provide a tourist
attraction and historic land-
mark (an informal one at least.)
I said then that it was an
ambitious undertaking and
a difficult one, but as several
years passed, I realized to give
the city a chance to have such
a venue, the city would have to
be more involved, administra-
tively and financially.
Once the arena is gone, it
is gone, and no similar tour-
ist/citizen venue will ever be
developed.
Some folks are speculating
that commercial development
involving local figures of note
may be the reason for the
quick decision to demolish. I
have no information on that
but time will tell if the arena is
demolished.
For about 10 years, the area
was available for development
and no one was interested at
all. Of course, that was then,
and now is now.
I think it is fair to character-
ize the City Council as sitting
back on its collective haunches
and doing nothing to help the
project succeed.

Hey Rube, you
have 60 days

Editor:
If you worked for a circus and
yelled, "Hey Rube," that meant
you were in distress or danger
and needed help right away.
Well, the call of "Hey Rube"
has been issued by the Circus
Arts Foundation, aka Tito
Gaona, Orlando Bevington and
all the volunteers of Save Our
Circus. The city of Venice gave
the Circus a five-year window
to raise money to put a new
roof on the building and bring
it up to standards.
They are only two years into
that time frame.
The other day, I read in the
newspaper that they had been
given only 60 days to fix the
roof or they were going to

knock it down. Are we
really going to lose this
very important part of
Venice's history?
We cannot replace this
diamond in the rough
once it is gone. Do you
remember what the old
train station looked like
in 1999? I do. It was in
the same shape if not
worse than the Circus
Arena.
Today, the train depot
is a jewel and gathering
place for many city social
affairs. Further, the depot
is beautiful to look at as
you drive over the Center
Bridge.
What will we look at
if they tear down the
Arena? An industrial
park, more airport or
just another vacant lot to
see as you drive over the
Circus Bridge?

Foundation by calling

Volunteers are always
wanted. With a 60-day
deadline, it is time to let
city hall know how you
feel or better yet, go to
the foundation and tell
them you are answering
their "Hey Rube" call.
Aren't there any persons
of vision who have deep
pockets who can Save
Our Circus?
After all, we have a
great circus heritage in
this area. Let's enjoy it.
There is hope of the
Circus Arena becom-
ing the county's largest
performing arts venue.
With 4,500-plus seats, it
would be able to house
all those shows too large
for the 1,700 seats at
the Van Wezel. It isn't
only circuses that could
use the arena. We could
attract trade shows and
large theater groups. It
could serve as a sound


stage for films and televi-
sion shows.
Tito Gaona has spoken
to many circuses around
the world about the
potential reopening of
the Venice Circus Arena.
We are becoming well
known as a Bicycle
Friendly City. Wouldn't it
be nice to host a Bicycle
Convention here in
Venice. The possibilities
are endless.
First we must Save the
Arena.

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL



Hammond shuts door as Indians win, 5-3


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice Indians
were clinging to a 5-2 lead
in the bottom of the fifth
inning Tuesday night as
the Braden River Pirates
had two men on and the
tying run at the plate with
just one out.
Cooper Hammond's
arrival turned that cling
into something more akin
to a stranglehold.
Hammond induced two
harmless groundouts to get
the Indians out of the threat
with a 2-run lead intact and
pitched 22% shutout innings
to preserve a 5-3 win for the
Indians.
Hammond's lone blem-
ish was an intentional
walk issued in that fifth
inning to Dylan Lee, a
teammate of Hammond's
in the summer. Lee
homered in the fourth
inning to trim the Pirates'
deficit to 4-2.
"I wanted to pitch to
him, because I know
him," Hammond said.
Head Coach Craig
Faulkner's decision to
put the tying run on
base paid off, however,
as Hammond got Eric
Schappacher to ground
out weakly to third.
Faulkner said, "If we can
get to Cooper Hammond
with a lead, we feel pretty
good about it.
"You feel real confident
with a guy like that because
he works hard at what he


does. It's not by chance that
he does well. He works at
his trade and you know
when he comes in, you're
in pretty good hands."
Hammond said, "I was
hitting my spots really
well. I only had to throw
one slider all night. I
guess they weren't seeing
my fastball."
The Indians put
themselves ahead by
playing fundamentally
sound baseball, relying
heavily on the bunt both
to get guys on and move
them over. Venice reached
base 14 times on Pirates
starter Brooks Norton,
who allowed 12 hits in
4 % innings.
"This is the kind of
team we are," Faulkner
said. "We're going to play
a lot of games close.
"I was real proud of
these guys getting bunts
down tonight. It was part
of our game plan. We ran
the bases well. Guys came
through with some clutch
hits and our pitching was
strong. We're a defensive/
pitching team. If we put
up five runs, I'm proud of
that."
The Indians' aforemen-
tioned baserunning was
on display in the top of
the fifth. Danny Raynor
hit a routine grounder
to short that typically
would've ended the in-
ning, but Colton Lightner
beat the forceout at
second with a head-first
slide.

Tyson Albert gave up two runs in four innings for his second win of the season as Venice defeated Braden River, 5-3.


Faulkner said, "Real
savvy play by Colton
Lightner. It looked like
he was dead out. When
you put the ball on the
ground, good things are
going to happen."
Venice starter Tyson
Albert improved his re-
cord to 2-0, allowing two
earned runs on four hits
in four innings of work.
Southpaw knuckleballer


Kade Hunkapiller allowed
two hits and recorded
just one out before
Hammond entered,
although Hunkapiller was
the victim of a misplayed
flyball that should've
been an out and instead
turned into a double.
Four Indians Raynor,
Lightner, Ryan Miller and
Mike Rivera recorded
two hits apiece. Shortstop


Dalton Guthrie drove in
two runs.
Verrill lamented what
he considered sloppy play
by his Pirates team and
suggested the outcome
will be different when
the Indians and Pirates
meet in Venice later this
season.
"Our district is tight,"
Verrill said. "Everybody is
as good as anybody else.


We split with them last
year with two one-run
games.
"We'll go down to their
place and beat them like
we did last year. They're
tough, though."

HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING



Indians come up short at state meet


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The five Venice High
wrestlers who quali-
fied for last weekend's
2A meet were playing
with the house's money
at the tail end of a
season during which
the Indians exceeded
even their own coach's
expectations.
There would be no
more postseason magic,
as none of the five
placed in their weight
class during the 2-day
event. But the experi-
ence gained by the
three grapplers who will
return next year could
pay big dividends the
next time around.
Kyle Kelley was the
Indians' top performer all
season, carrying a 47-3
record into the state meet
after winning Region 3's
106-pound class. Kelley,
who wrestled for Venice's
JV team last season as
a junior, got off to a
promising start with an
8-4 decision win over
Land O'Lakes' Dominick
Telesco.
Unfortunately, Kelley
was eliminated from
championship conten-
tion Friday afternoon
when he dropped a 4-1
decision to Hallandale's
Randy Garay. Kelley
pinned Lely's Mike
Messina with four
seconds left in the
first round of their


consolation match before
falling 11-6 to Olympic
Heights' John Cleristor.
Venice Head Coach
Dan Kelly said of Kelley,
"He had a great season.
He was disappointed that
he lost, but there wasn't
really anything he could
do about it."
The future of the
Indians' team is sopho-
more Zach Kelly, Dan's
son. The younger Kelly
carried a 47-6 record
into Friday's competition
and dominated Palm
Bay's Tony Jaigobond
10-1 for a major deci-
sion win in the opening
round.
The 113-pounder
met Olympic Heights'
Cole Schreiber in
round two, falling 7-6
despite nearly pinning
Schreiber late in the
match. Schreiber went
on to finish second in
the division, highlight-
ing just how close Kelly
was to contending for a
state title.
It was Schreiber's third
appearance at the state
tournament, a feat that
Zach Kelly will likely
accomplish by the time
his high school career is
finished.
Dan Kelly said, "Zach
had probably the hard-
est weight class of any
of them. He really did
wrestle great. The two
kids he lost to were both
state players, which is
fine.


"I didn't really expect
him to place; I was kind
of hoping he would, but I
didn't expect it."
Bo Williams was the
other sophomore who
made it to Lakeland for
Venice, sneaking in as a
No. 4 seed with a 42-12
record. Williams lost his
opening round match to
Gandy's Jon Gardner but
was able to notch a 2-0
win over Sebring's Nathan
Franklin. Williams was
eliminated by Palm Bay's
Josh Farley in the next
round.
Junior CJ Trammel
also went 1-2, recording
a 16-3 major decision
over Niceville's Trenton
Miller in the 138-pound
division. Tommy Carello
was Venice's lone
qualifier in the heavier
classes, earning his
way to Lakeland with a
fourth-place finish at the
Region 3 meet. Carello
lost both of his matches
in Lakeland, but Dan
Kelly said his mere
presence was proof of
the progress Carello has
made in the last year.
"Tommy had an aver-
age year last year," Kelly
said. "Our whole team
was like that. We came a
long way."
Although Kelley and
Williams went from the
JV to state qualifiers in a
one-year span, Venice re-
turns varsity-tested talent
next year, and Dan Kelly
believes his next team

last weekend.


will be even stronger than
this one.
"I think so," he said.
"Especially at the tourna-
ments. Dual-wise, we
might be a little weaker
because we're losing 195,
220 and heavyweight to
graduation. The JV kids
behind them need to


work hard and get better
and take their place."
But the Indians figure
to be one of the best
teams in the state in the
lighter divisions, with
Zack Kelly, Williams,
Trammel returning
alongside regional quali-
fiers Addison Turkovics


(126) and Bryce
Balsinger (132).
"Definitely," the coach
said. "That's the idea.
You've got the progres-
sion where you got there
(this year). Now it's time
to win it."

County to fund gun range, road expansion projects


PROVIDED BY SARASOTA
COUNTY GOVERNMENT
The Sarasota County
Commission awarded
four construction con-
tracts totaling about
$3.9 million for capital
improvement projects
at its recent meeting in
south Venice.
The projects are:
Gun range expan-
sion at Knight Trail
Park: The Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
leases and operates the
gun range at Knight Trail
Park, 3445 Rustic Road,
Nokomis. Operations
there include a criminal
justice firing range,
mounted patrol, K-9 unit
and an obstacle course.
The shooting range
pavilion was completed
in September 2010. The
new contract provides
for the addition of a
2,400-square-foot metal
building for training
of Sheriff's Office staff
members in live, scenar-
io-based situations such
as building searches,
search/arrest warrant
services, victim rescue
drills, hostage rescue
and family disturbances.
It will be the first facility
of its kind in the county,
officials say.
Southern Cross
Contracting, Inc. of
Sarasota was awarded the
approximately $175,000
contract, which will
be funded through the
Capital Improvements
fund. Construction is
slated to begin in March,
with completion in
August.
Road resurfacing
for Plantation com-
munity and various
roads in Venice and
south Sarasota County:
The project involves the
milling and resurfacing,
along with restoration
work, of about 16.5 lane
miles of roads. Sections
of the following roads


will be resurfaced:
Rockley Boulevard,
Wexford Boulevard,
Woodbridge Drive, Gulf
Coast Boulevard, Myrtle
Avenue, Pineland Avenue,
Second Street, Groveland
Avenue and First Street.
Ajax Paving Industries
of Florida LLC in
Nokomis was selected as
the contractor for the
$1.25 million project,
funded by the
Environmental Land
Management Study gas
tax. The project is ex-
pected to begin in March,
with substantial comple-
tion in June.
New restroom and
concession facility with
related improvements
at North Jetty Beach
Park at the south end of
Casey Key: The existing
30-year-old restroom
building will be replaced
with a new facility that
will almost double the


restroom fixtures, includ-
ing two family restrooms,
combined with a family-
friendly food concession.
Other improvements
include reconfiguration
of the shell parking lot
for improved traffic flow
and safer pedestrian
crossing areas. Paved
parking spaces that
meet the standards of
the Americans with
Disabilities Act will be
built. The existing trolley
food concession and bait
shop known as the "fish
camp" will remain in
operation.
Zirkelbach
Construction Inc. of
Palmetto was awarded
the $1.4 million project,
which will be funded
by the infrastructure
surtax (1-cent sales tax).
Construction is expected
to begin this month, with
completion targeted in
January 2014.

Hundreds oppose trash transfer station in area


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
Nearly 800 people
have signed a petition
asking the city of North
Port to stop pursuing a
proposed trash transfer
station and environmen-
tal business park, which
is being eyed for the
Toledo Blade Boulevard
corridor, according to
Tony Treadwell, a Bobcat
Trail resident.
Treadwell said the
petitions were taken
door to door in not only
Bobcat Trail, but also in
the Lakeside Plantation
and Cypress Falls
communities.
Now the homeowners
have turned to North
Port city commissioners,
hoping they'll understand
their plight. Treadwell
said representatives from
all three homeowners' as-
sociations have met with
Mayor Linda Yates and


Commissioner Cheryl
Cook, and have reached
out to commissioners
Jim Blucher and Rhonda
DiFranco.
Yates asked City
Manager Jonathan Lewis
last week to see if a cur-
rent $74,000 study can
be stopped, since there
seems to be very little
support in the commu-
nity for the project.
Expected to be com-
pleted in April, the study
is looking at five sites
along Toledo Blade that
meet a specific criteria
of 20 acres or more for
the station, along with
conceptual designs,
according to Solid Waste
Director Monica Bramble.
The city currently ships
its trash to a transfer facil-
ity in Nokomis, according
to Bramble, and could
save as much as $200,000
annually by building its
own facility.


Bramble said previ-
ously that the city is
not looking to bring
additional waste into the
city should the transfer
station actually be
built, but that has done
little to quell the fears
of Treadwell and other
homeowners.
"We don't want to be
known as being the trash
city," Treadwell added.
Blucher said he
didn't need to see the
signatures to know that
residents are serious
about not wanting the
waste transfer station
built near their homes.
Blucher said he'll likely
meet with the homeown-
ers soon, but would like
to see the study com-
pleted so the issue can
be "put to bed" one way
or the other. He'd like to
see commissioners take
a vote on the matter in-
stead of just unilaterally


stopping the study.
Blucher added that the
homeowners' reactions
are "part of the process"
the city is undertaking
with the study.
"I can't accept some-
thing going into a neigh-
borhood if they don't want
it," Blucher said. "Why
would we do that?"
Treadwell said the
homeowners plan to
put the signature drive
on hold, having already
proved their point.
They asked the city to
permanently abandon
the study, Treadwell
added, but it's unclear
if commissioners will
continue the process or
simply stop midstream.
For Treadwell and the
nearly 800 people who
signed the petition, the
choice is clear.
"This will have a
negative impact on our
homes, our businesses


and our schools," he
said. "It will have a nega-
tive effect on the health


and well-being of North
Port."

Aviation Society to hold open house


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Free is the operative
word Saturday at the
Venice Airport where the
Venice Aviation Society
Inc. (VASI) will celebrate
its 20th anniversary with
an open house.
Airplanes have been
flying into Venice at least
since Jan. 13, 1927, when
a plane landed in front
of the Hotel Venice with
a delivery of strawber-
ries for hotel guests.
That landing was about
where the parking lot for
Epiphany Cathedral is to-
day. In those days it was
a field. The hotel serves
today as an assisted liv-
ing facility known as The
Summit at Venice.
The next air field in
Venice was an actual
airfield, located about
where the Intracoastal
Waterway is today,
just east of the pres-
ent locations of Venice
High School, Venice
Elementary School and
the Venice Gondolier
Sun. Instead of bringing
strawberries to Venice,
patients for Dr. Fred
Albee's Florida Medical
Center were often flown
in by the doctor's neph-
ew, Stephen Albee Jr.
A second airfield was
constructed in 1942-43
to serve as a training
field for World War II
pilots. From that year
until about 1956 when
the high school was built,
Venice had two airfields.
The airbase closed
after the war when the
property was turned
over to the city of
Venice, which oper-
ates it today. Money to
maintain the airport
comes from leases with
businesses located
on airport property,
which includes the land
along the beach where
Sharky's at the Pier is
located, the old circus
arena as well as the
visible airport-related
businesses on Airport
Road and the hangars.
The County Sheriff's
helicopter is stationed
there. Airport property
also generates prop-
erty taxes in excess of
$100,000 annually to the
county, according to a


story by Pam Johnson,
City of Venice Marketing
and Communications
Officer, that appeared
earlier this year in Our
Town. Also in Johnson's
story was a reference to
the quit claim deed that
transferred the property
to the city.
Should the land no
longer be used for
aviation, the prop-
erty would revert to the
federal government,
which received it as a gift
from Finn Caspersen at
the beginning of World
War II. Caspersen Beach,
south of Venice, is named
for Caspersen.
Today, Venice
Municipal Airport is a
general aviation field
that is loved by some and
disliked by some.
VASI is the organiza-
tion that bridges those
interests.
Item one on the VASI
mission statement is the
promotion of the contin-
ued use of the airport as
a general aviation facility,
yet equally important is
the education of citizens
to the benefits of such
a facility to the public
welfare.
Falling under the
umbrella of VASI one
way or another are Angel
flights that deliver people
and, on occasion, organs,
to hospitals; AGAPE
flights to assist the poor
in Cuba, flight training;
and business and leisure
travel
Safety is its primary
goal, aVASI spokesman
said.
At Saturday's event,
planes will be on display
but there also will be
airplane rides, helicopter
rides, a bouncy house
and other activities
for children and food
vendors. There also will
be guided tours for $12
per person.
The event will be open
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Enter the event through
the Suncoast Air Center
hangar gate. Signs will
mark the way.
Open house sponsors
are the Suncoast Air
Center and the Venice
Aviation Society.
There is aVASI meeting
at 7 p.m. this evening
in Venice City Hall's


At Saturday's VASI open house, many different kinds of planes will be available for view and some for rides.

Local man's book fulfills vow to his late wife


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

SARASOTA COUNTY
- Herb Baron's young
life changed forever dur-
ing the Allied advance
to Rome in 1944, when
his best friend, Junior,
stepped on a land mine
and was blown to bits.
"We were blood broth-
ers, always on patrol
together," Baron said.
"He was from the hills of
West Virginia and I was
a kid from Philadelphia.
We were the youngest
in our outfit, both 19.
I wasn't there when he
died. I was in a hospital,
getting treatment for
malaria-related symp-
toms I had contracted
earlier, in North Africa.
When I learned he had
died I said to myself,
'This is it, I'm just going
to walk out there and let
the first enemy soldier
shoot at me.'"
Baron, now 88 and
a Sarasota resident,
blamed himself for many
years that he was not
present to save his friend
that fateful day. The


Herb Baron of Sarasota has written a book about his experi-
ences during World War II, called "La Dolce Vita: A Love Affair
Until the End of Time."


experience coupled
with the war-related
death of another close
boyhood friend, Heshie
- sent him spiraling
into a condition then
known as battle fatigue
or World War II disorder.
Today it's referred to as
post-traumatic stress
disorder. Baron's battle


to overcome PTSD is
chronicled in his new
book, "La Dolce Vita A
Love Affair Until the End
of Time," and is dedicat-
ed to his wife Lorraine,
who died in 2010. Baron
said she spent years
helping him through the
process of healing.
"She was as much a


victim of PTSD as I,"
Baron said. "All I could
do was worry about the
past which, to me, was
never gone. It's a very
complicated disorder.
Lorraine spent four years
as a newlywed bringing
me back to health -
something that no doctor
could do."
Baron added Lorraine
- whom he had met at
a birthday party shortly
after returning stateside
and subsequently mar-
ried tirelessly worked
to put him in touch
with the best doctors,
reinforced his therapy at
home, and worked two
jobs to support them
both.
"She was my angel," he
said. "She took reports is-
sued from the U.S. Army
Medical Department in
Bethesda, Maryland, on
the latest research on the
subject, and she worked
with me every day on
cognitive therapy, which
she learned from books
she got at the library."

FROM SOUTH COUNTY
FAMILY YMCA
The South County
Family YMCA is offering
free fasting blood glucose
testing at its Venice and
Englewood locations
thanks to a donation
from Gulf Coast Medical
Group.
The testing is being
done in conjunction with
the Y's participation in a
national diabetes preven-
tion program. The South
County YMCA is one of
17 Ys in the country par-
ticipating in the project
that, if successful, could
save millions in future
health care costs and cre-
ate an infrastructure for
how community-based
organizations deliver
health care services to
the Medicare population
with prediabetes.
The free testing is open
to the first 50 individu-
als at each session who
qualify. All individuals
should fast for 12 hours
before arriving for
testing.
The dates and times
testing is available are:
*Wednesday, Feb. 20,
8-11 a.m., Venice YMCA,
701 Center Road;
Monday, Feb. 25,
8-11 a.m., Englewood
YMCA, 701 Medical Blvd.;
*Wednesday, Feb. 27,
8-11 a.m., Englewood
YMCA, 701 Medical Blvd.
The YMCAs diabetes
prevention program,
part of the Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention-led National
Diabetes Prevention
Program, is a 12-month,
evidence-based program
that includes 16 weekly
core sessions followed by
monthly maintenance
sessions.
In a classroom, trained
lifestyle coaches will
teach a small group of
people about how to
reduce their risk for de-
veloping type 2 diabetes.


Long-term program
goals include reducing
participants' body weight
by 7 percent and increas-
ing physical activity to
150 minutes per week.
"We have offered
the YMCA's diabetes
prevention program for
nearly two years now
and we've seen great
results, and we will now
be able to reach even
more people in need,"
said Jennifer Tucker-
Mogensen, Healthy
Communities coordina-
tor. "Participating in
this project will not only
help us further prevent
diabetes in a population
that is at great risk, but
it will help shape the
future of how prevention
programs are delivered
and paid for across the
nation."
YMCA of the USA, the
national office for the
nation's Ys, was awarded


a Health Care Innovation
award by the Center for
Medicare and Medicaid
Innovation. Y-USA chose
17 Ys to participate in the
demonstration project.
The award will help
South County Family
YMCA recruit and deliver
the diabetes prevention
program to Medicare
fee-for-service benefi-
ciaries and track health
outcomes for those
individuals.
Because research
has shown that such
programs can reduce
incidence of diabetes
among Medicare-age
individuals by about
70 percent (compared to
58 percent for younger
individuals), the program
has been identified as a
promising approach in
lowering Medicare costs.
The demonstration
project will take place in
17 communities where

SUN NEWSPAPERS


Development for River Road/I-75 area discussed


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

Officials from D.R.
Horton and Banks
Engineering laid out
their plans recently to
the Sarasota County
Development Review
Committee for a new
project that could bring
nearly 500 new homes to
South County in the next
few years.
The community,
which would be called
Caribbean Village, would
be located at the north-
east corner of the inter-
section of River Road and
Venice Avenue, across the
street from the entrance
to the recently reopened
Snook Haven Restaurant,


and near the Grand Palm
development currently
being constructed by
Neal Communities.
D.R. Horton represen-
tative Steve Boyett said
the community will fea-
ture a variety of homes,
ranging from single-
family to multifamily.
The community will not
be age-restricted and
several amenities, such
as pools and possibly
clubhouses, also will be
part of the property.
"That's part of what we
deliver," Boyett said.
Bill Murray of Banks
Engineering said the
property features several
wetlands, all of which
will be preserved in
the development. One


of the wetlands is near
the access point that
is planned on River
Road, and another
large wetland is along
the northern border of
Interstate 75.
"It's our intent that the
three major wetlands of
the property and the bor-
der along (I-)75 will not
be disturbed or impacted,
but we're in a situation
where the access point
does impact the wetland
between the lake and
River Road." Murray said.
Murray said most
of the 150-acre-plus
property already has
been zoned as residen-
tial, while the final 15
acres near the northeast
corner of the property


that border the inter-
state's interchange will
be rezoned from com-
mercial to residential.
He said the development
should be ready to move
forward while awaiting
the zoning change from
the Sarasota County
Commission. No timeta-
ble was given as to when
the matter could appear
before the commission.
"There's potential for
us to start work on this
in nine months, but it
probably won't be that
soon," Boyett said. "It all
depends on the process."
In other business
Thursday, county
Emergency Management
officials got the go-ahead
to proceed with a special


exception permit for a
planned 250-foot-tall
communications tower
that will be located in
the county's new
$12.1 million Emergency
Operations Center, which
will be built at 6062
Porter Way, Sarasota.
Robert Stuckey, the
county's general manager
of public safety com-
munications, said the
structure would replace
some of the communica-
tion devices that currently
are on the roof of the
County Administration
Center. The tower
also would be used by
seven or eight different
agencies, including the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office, the Department of


Forestry, County Utilities,
Emergency Medical
Services, the U.S. Coast
Guard and amateur radio.
"This is crucial to what
the new 911 EOC center
is all about," Stuckey said
about the agencies being
able to share the tower.
Last year, Sarasota
County commissioners
approved a $103,000 con-
tract with Ajax/Tandem
Construction for the first
phase of preconstruction
management services for
the future EOC. Officials
expected the design will
be completed late this
year, and the project
should be completed
sometime in 2014, if
construction is approved.

Getting by with help from our friends


FROM THE OPEN STUDIO

The Venice Home
Depot recently lent a
helping hand to The
Open Studio, which
allowed the Englewood
nonprofit organization
to expand its gardening
operations and classes.
The Home Depot
Foundation gave a
generous monetary grant
for the organization's
watering expansion, and
the local Home Depot
on Jacaranda Boulevard
donated many bags of
organic garden soil for
new plant beds.
Because of the founda-
tion's commitment to
helping local nonprofits,
The Open Studio was
able to expand its water-
ing systems, including
cisterns, well-pumping
and distribution to its
many raised bed gardens
and landscaping.
This increased capac-
ity allows The Open
Studio to offer more
classes in gardening,
food preparation, herbs
and healthy living, and
to participate in the
local farmers market.
Volunteers can now
spend time planting,


harvesting and sharing
the bounty.
The landscaping and
gardens at The Open
Studio are an integral
part of its mission to
illustrate the concepts of
permaculture, sustain-
ability and self-suffi-
ciency in our backyards.
Studio volunteers want
to show that anyone
can have a beautiful
backyard that feeds both
their bodies and their
spirits.
The studio's vegetable
gardens show examples
of the foods that can be
successfully grown in the
challenging Florida cli-
mate. Raised beds, low-
tech watering systems
and the permaculture
concepts of planning a
landscape that supports
and protects itself are all
part of the continuing
development of the one-
acre site.
Classes focus on
organic gardening,
harvesting and prepar-
ing the foods grown,
herbs for both culinary
and medicinal uses,
composting, vermicul-
ture and planning and
building your permanent
landscape around which


the movable environ-
ment develops.
The permanent land-
scape, trees, bushes,
perennial plants,
ground covers and large
water features anchor
the environment. The
vegetable gardens,
annual plantings, small
water features and pot-
ted accents are added
around these perma-
nent features.
Developing a perma-
nent landscape can take
years of installation and
rearranging until it all
"works." Creating that
environment can be a
lifelong pleasure and
challenge.
Studio volunteers show
examples of many ways
to achieve a healthy,
beautiful and produc-
tive backyard. Annual
vegetable gardens are
important to the mission
but education about and
examples of native plant-
ings, edible landscape
plants and beautiful
accent plants are also
included.
The Open Studio
supports reducing man's
carbon footprint upon
the earth and sustainable
practices that protect

'9 to 5'are the odds you will enjoy this one


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Best Boss failed to
show for the preview of
"9 to 5" at The Players in
Sarasota.
Venice Mayor John Holic
was named Best Boss in
Sarasota a few days earlier
but duty called and a meet-
ing in Venice prevented
him from collecting his
award in person that night.
The worst boss,
Franklin Hart Jr. (George
Naylor), not only showed
up but inspired memo-
ries of Dabney Coleman
in the 1980 film that also
starred Dolly Parton, Jane
Fonda and Lily Tomlin.
Not only was Hart that
good at being bad but


with help from director/
choreographer/musical
director Jared Walker and
an awesome crew of set
builders and technical
folks, Hart was able to rise
to the occasion in more
ways than one.
Helping him up the
ladder of success and
promotion to a different
office were Violet Newstead
(Nancy Denton), Doralee
Rhodes (Alana Opie) and
Judy Bemly (Eve Caballero).
Making her Players debut,
Denton worked well with
Opie and Caballero and
a strong supporting cast
of singers, dancers and
furniture movers.
Scenes seemed to
change with lightning


speed as the action
switched from the secre-
tarial pool to Hart's office,
Hart's home and back
and forth and in and out
between and during danc-
ing scenes whew! The
scene crew seemed to have
worked out its own chore-
ography that blended with
that of the cast to move all
those desks, typewriters,
backdrops and chairs.
Dolly Parton even
showed up on video -
at the show's beginning.
Parton wrote the music
and lyrics. The book was
written by Patricia Resnick.
Some two hours later,
the audience was standing
and applauding a job well
done and, that Hart got


what he deserved.
"9 to 5" continues
through Feb. 24 at The
Players, 838 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota. Note that
evening performances
are at 7:30 p.m. There are
matinees on Sunday at
2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for
students and $25 for adults.

Have You Reviewed Your Annuities

Recently?


* Is your annuity "under
water"? Do you know what
that means?

* Are you aware of your
income or death benefits?

* When was the last time the
allocation within your
variable annuity was
rebalanced or reviewed?


Many times, we find that individual investors are sold
annuities that are never looked at or reviewed again. In fact,
many individuals do not even understand the different
dynamics that their annuities contain. If you own an annuity,
it should be viewed as part of your portfolio and should be
managed as such. If you are in need of assistance in
understanding your annuity or managing your annuity,
please call for your free annuity guide
"Income Guarantees forYour Retirement Savings."


If you have unanswered questions regarding
your annuity, or would simply like your annuity
reviewed by a knowledgeable professional,
please call Harry Pinkham CFP,
First Vice President Investments
(941) 492-3328. Harry.pinkham@wfadvisors.com


Investment and insurance products:
I NOT FDIC-Insured I NO Bank Guarantee MAY Lose Value
Variable annuities are long-term investments suitable for retirement funding and are subject to market
fluctuations and investment risk.
Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. Guarantees apply to
minimum income from an annuity; they do not guarantee an investment return or the safety of the underlying
funds.
Please note: This review is not, in any way, intended as a solicitation to replace your existing annuity. Such an
exchange is often not suitable due to such factors as surrender charges on your existing contract, the
surrender charge period on the new contract, and the various fees and expenses associated with the new
product. Therefore, replacing an existing annuity should only be considered after a careful evaluation of these
factors as well as a thorough review of your existing coverage.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4A95 2AKQ94 0AK54KJ

What is your opening bid?

A It depends on your methods. If
you play gambling three no trump,
you have to start with two clubs. If
not, we would opt for three no trump.
We might be able to run nine tricks
opposite a Yarborough in partner's
hand with no play for either major
game.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

A K 10954 A 10953 0 J J J8

Partner opens the bidding with one
diamond. What do you respond?

A With two four-card suits, you
would respond in the lower-ranking.
If partner holds the higher-ranking,
that will be his rebid. With this
distribution you intend showing both
suits, starting with the higher-
ranking. Bid one spade, intending to
rebid hearts, if the auction permits.

Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

SK 4 1 AJ 108 64 0 J 84765

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

A You cannot be sure of the right
strain or even the right level. Bid
three hearts. That is not a "drop-
dead" bid, but shows a six-card suit
and offers partner a choice of game
contracts. He is in a better position
than you to decide where the hand
should be played.

Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

* K c J 10 7 6 5 0 Q J 8 AK 98


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
IV 14 INT

What action do you take?


EAST
Pass


A Game is unlikely, so it is simply a
matter of finding the best spot. Your
king of spades is likely to be of more
use at a notrump contract than at a
suit, so we think you are in as good a
spot as any. Pass.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

* K 10 ( A Q 9640 K 744 J 72

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 2,6 Pass

What do you bid now?

A That depends on your style. In
days gone by, a bid of two no trump
here would show extra values, so you
would have to rebid two hearts.
These days with a two-over-one
response being a game force, it is
more useful to have it show a
minimum opening bid with cards in
the unbid suits. Bid it.

Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

6 Q74 AQ94 0 AK446J 104


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
INT Pass 24
9
What action do you take?


EAST
30


A Don't think of doubling you
hold no surprise for East the
overcaller knows he is missing the
two top diamonds. Partner used the
Stayman Convention to check on
whether you have a four-card major,
so bid three hearts.

'Sesame Street'

nears 1 billion

views on YouTube
Nearing 1 billion views on YouTube, "Sesame
Street" is headed for Justin Bieber territory.
The children's program is closing in on the kind
of rarified digital milestone usually reserved for the
likes of pop stars and cat videos. "Sesame Street"
will soon pass 1 billion views on YouTube and it's
celebrating the mark with a campaign to put itself
over the hump.
"Sesame Street" on Thursday will post a video
featuring the character Telly Monster, urging
viewers to click the show past the final 20 million
views and unlock a "top-secret video." Naturally,
for the nonprofit children's series, it's a teaching
moment, too. Don't be surprised if Count von Count
shows up to ponder such a big number.
For"Sesame Street," the milestone a first on
YouTube for a nonprofit or U.S. children's media
outlet reflects the increasingly multimedia
nature of kid entertainment. Big Bird and Oscar the
Grouch are now about as likely to be watched on an
iPad, phone or laptop as they are on PBS.
"We have this theory that if we get content on
multiple platforms and devices, it gives kids and
families a chance to reinforce and experience the
curriculum multiple times,"says Terry Fitzpatrick,
executive vice president of content and distribution
for Sesame Workshop, who emphasizes videos are
best co-viewed with child and parent. "It blows
me away to think about how popular and strong a
platform (YouTube) has become for us."

What a fun night
Sunday night I had the pleasure of attending a Beyond the
Sea Supper Club, tribute artist performance. I'd been meaning
to attend for a few weeks and finally made time in my
schedule to go to an event I list in the Let's Go!
I'd first like to say to the owners, a big thank you fora
wonderful experience. I gave my mom the option of which
artist she'd like to see and she chose Rod Stewart, or in this
case Bob Stewart. Everything from dinner, dessert to the show
itself was great. They have a delicious dinner menu: you have
your choice of prime rib, chicken, fish or a pasta dish all served
with a salad. They also offer many add-ons, just in case you'd
like more than the dinner comes with.
All in all, it was a fun night. My mom even said on the way
home,"I could've closed my eyes and pretended I was at a Rod
Stewart concert," it was that great. I list the Beyond the Sea
schedule weekly in the Let's Go! so if you're looking for some-
thing to get out and do with the girls, ora date night, find an
artist that you enjoy and you won't be disappointed. They are
also starting a comedy night, which is even more up my alley.
When I get a chance to attend, I'll let you know how it was.
Kudos Beyond the Sea fora lovely evening for my mother, her
friend and me.
Now on to Let's Go! I had a request to list the answers to
the Valentine's "Guess the love songs"contest. We had many
entries and most were correct. Thank you to everyone who
participated, and I hope you look forward to more contests
in the future. The answers are as follows: 1960,"Sugar Pie
Honey Bunch'"or"I Can't Help Myself,"both were accepted and
the artists The Temptations and The Four Tops were counted
as right; 1970, "Wonderful Tonight," by Eric Clapton; 1980,
"What's Love Got to Do With It" by Tina Turner; 1990, "I'll Stand
by You" by The Pretenders; 2000, "We Belong Together" by
Mariah Carey. If someone else sang the song in the same era
we accepted those answers as well. We will be doing another
competition in March for Saint Patrick's Day so keep a look out.

curry to people wanting more fast-food
choices. What most people don't realize
is that curry is a generic term used to
describe a variety of Indian and Southeast
Asian cuisines.
Also, "spicy" doesn't necessarily mean
"hot,"and to create spicy Indian dishes,
American and English chefs don't neces-
sarily have to be Indian. In fact, Jon Warner
and Flo Lilly, who have worked in area
restaurants over the years, have learned to
master the art of preparing mild, medium,
and hot Indian dishes while working at
India Spice.
"At first, I didn't like Indian food,"said
Flo, "but I've learned to love everything."
The trick to learning about Indian cuisine,
according to Bob Couzins, is to sample
the most popular choices such as Chicken
Tikka Masala, Tandoori Shrimp Masala, or
vegetable Masala first, as all three dishes
appeal to most mild/medium tastes.
"We buy all our fresh spinach, mush-
rooms, cauliflower, okra, carrots and
onions locally," said Bob, "and we prepare
fresh garlic and ginger pastes daily as well
as a very mild Indian cheese called paneer."
Becky Couzins enjoys cooking and eating
tasty curries but is quick to remind people
about the health benefits of turmeric,
cumin, chili peppers, and cilantro, all key

1720 S. McCall Road, buy all new appli-

the most essential piece of equipment they
needed was a Shaan Tandoori, a wok-like
clay oven where most dishes are cooked to

Sandra's Restaurant added a new dimen-
sion to the downtown Punta Gorda scene
when it opened in September of 2011 by
bringing German recipes into the mix of
choices for food lovers.
The eatery, located at 111 West Olympia
Ave., just before the U.S. 41 North inter-
change if you are in the heart of Punta
Gorda, is owned by former Germany
residents, Sandra and Rainer Ruhland. The
restaurant features such classic European
dishes as goulash, sauerbraten, schnitzel and
many other recipes from both Sandra and
Rainer, who grew up with these wonderful
favorites in their homeland.
Of course, nothing could be better than a
cold, frosty mug of German beer to go with
the meal. Bischoff Doppel Bock, Black Lager
and Pils, along with Gaffel Kolsch and others
are offered on tap. Domestic and German
bottled beers are also available, as well as
various wine choices. Rainer was instru-
mental in starting the Punta Gorda Mug
Club, where members receive a personalized
T-shirt and 25-ounce mug that can be filled
with selected beers for only $5 at The Celtic
Ray, Sandra's, or Shorty's Place, allowing the
patron to drink a variety of Irish, German and
American flavors."We have a nice network
with everybody here in Punta Gorda,"Rainer
noted, of the cooperation between establish-
ments. Each of the locations offers special
events exclusively for club members.
The Ruhlands relocated here from


Germany six years ago. I came down here
every winter to relax a little bit," Rainer
explained, who for years ran a catering
business in Germany, serving all of Europe.
Deciding to make the permanent move
to Florida, opening a German restaurant
seemed to be a logical step. A favorite of
Sandra's restaurant are the various types of
German bread, either with a meal or as a loaf
to prepare at home. "It's the same bread that
I used in catering back in Germany.":Choices
include Sunflower Bread, Farmer's Rye,
Pumpkin Seed, as well as the German pretzel
and apple strudel.
An early challenge for the Ruhlands was
to get people, who were unfamiliar with
the German food terms and flavors, into the
door. For lunch-goers, Sandra's has a $10
all you can eat German lunch buffet with
children under 11 eating at no cost. The
buffet highlights different items each day of
the week in addition to their regular lunch
menu, allowing first-timers a chance to
sample goulash, bratwurst and other Euro-
pean cuisine, along with potato salad, bread
dumplings, sauerkraut and much more.
Stop in Friday nights to hear live German
accordion music as an added treat to the
meal. Rainer and Sandra have plans for their
current outdoor patio, which will soon feature
big screen televisions showing big name
sports events in a beer garden atmosphere.
To review the menu, a description of the food
choices, the specials and other information

restaurant.com or call 941-575-0177.

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
For the 17th year, the Florida Frontier
Days Festival makes its way to Charlotte
Harbor to provide fun, games and food,
with a side of historical education.
"It's all about bringing to life what life
was like in this area of Florida 150 to 200
years ago,"said Frank Desguin, president
of the museum society, which presents
the festival.
Attending the festival is like stepping
back in time, where artisans, blacksmiths
and high tanners are dressed in period
garb and plying their trades. It's so educa-
tional that Friday of the two-day festival
is primarily attended by school groups,
though adults are certainly welcome.
"We really focus on the kids," Desguin
said. "They don't realize all that went on
during that time."


Of course, life during the real pioneer
days wasn't so simple. Everything had
to be made by hand-clothes, shoes,
furnishings, food and toys. At Florida
Frontier Days, you can see and learn
a little bit about candle making, fan
making, rug braiding, kite making and
much more.
"There's also going to be a fossil dig
on the beach," Desguin said."We buy
fossils and the kids go in there and search
for them. When they find them, we
encourage them to turn them in to an
arrowhead specialist who has the knowl-
edge and can explain what it is."
Desguin said that because Southwest
Florida is a fossil-rich area, the fossil dig
is intended to teach kids how to treat a
fossil when they find one on their own.
The idea is that they will take it to an
expert, who will help them figure out

the details and history of it. And you
never know-the fossil you find could
have come from a place that should be
explored further for more artifacts.
Even if you have come to the festival
for the past 16 years, there will be some-
thing new this year that you will want to
see.
"We have a family who is going to set
up a period telegraph station" Desguin
said. "And we'll also have a U.S. naval
reinactor, who will have Seminole War
and Civil War artifacts and uniforms."
The kids will also enjoy the people
dressed up as pirates, who were certainly


prevalent in Florida's early history. They
will be talking about what role the
pirates played in their day and will be
painting faces for those who want it.
To provide even more frontier ambi-
ance, there will be musicians strolling
around the grounds playing Florida folk
songs and period music. It's all meant to
give you the feeling of being at an old-
fashioned pioneer festival.
"It's really a family event" Desguin said.
""And we'll have food there like kettle
corn, ice cream, funnel cakes, hot dogs,
hamburgers, lemonade, and my specialty,
swamp cabbage."

Jeff Smith invites the public to the
"Army of Hope" picnic being held
on Feb. 24 at the Rotonda Elks
Lodge.

By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Eleven South Southwest Florida District
Elks Lodges are hosting a picnic, and they
are inviting the public to join in the fun. Jeff
Smith represents the Rotonda Elks Lodge
where the Army of Hope Picnic will take place
on Sunday.
Since 2008 picnics and other fundraising
events have been sponsored by Elks Lodges
across Florida, providing aid to Florida
families of deceased, disabled, and deployed
members of the military who are in need of
assistance.
"It is the second time and quite an honor
that the Rotonda Lodge has been chosen to
host this annual picnic,"Smith explained.
Smith will direct the fun and games portion
of the event, and Co- chairman Kay Neilley


milUrmau
from the Deep Creek Elks Lodge will take
charge of more formal matters, a flag
ceremony at noon and the reading of the
names of deceased military personnel from
the SSWFL area.
The Army of Hope Picnicwill be a carnival-
type family attraction. There will be no
admission charge or parking fee. Families will
enjoy a fun-filled afternoon of free music,
K-9 demonstrations, midway games, pony
rides, snow cones, cotton candy and balloons.
The Rotonda and the Bonita Springs Elks
Lodges will sell beverages and hand-cut
fries. Other lodges providing food for sale
will be Deep Creek (barbecue ribs) N. Fort
Myers (hamburgers/hot dogs) Port Charlotte
(sausages/peppers) Punta Gorda (funnel
cakes) Cape Coral (root beer floats) Engle-
wood/Naples (coleslaw/baked beans). One
hundred percent of the proceeds from the
sale of food and beverages and a 50/50 raffle
will be donated to eligible SSWFL military
families.
The Elks help seriously maimed and injured
Veterans return to society and daily life activi-
ties by paying for medical equipment not
covered by insurance.
The Elks aid people that have lost a family
member serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, and
they offer temporary financial assistance to


--
those in need if the military member of the
family is deployed.
In 2009, for example, the Army of Hope
brought dependent children to their Florida
Elks Youth Camp for the last week of the
camping season. Other examples of aid
assistance include: school lunches, clothing,
medical emergencies, baby sitters, phone
cards, and home or auto repairs.
Families of Florida active duty military
personnel, military reservists, Coast Guard,
National Guard and/or their dependents may
be eligible for receiving aid by submitting a
completed request form to their local SSWFL
Elks Lodge.
Since 2007 The Florida Army of Hope
has distributed over $170,000 to families
of deployed service men and women. Last
year, 11 lodges raised $9,800 for the Army of
Hope. Receiving this assistance enables the
military member to concentrate on his or her
duties without having to worry about family
finances at home. Finally, when Veterans
return home, the Army of Hope helps them
adapt to civilian life.

Showcase India in Punta Gorda


PROVIDED BY THE INDIAN AMERICAN
CULTURE CENTRE, INC.

Showcase India -the whole American
experience is back.
On Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a colorful
extravaganza featuring the culture, fashion and
food of exotic India will invade the Charlotte
Harbor Event and Conference Center in Punta
Gorda.
This year, the event features 10 different
styles of dance including the classical Bharat-
natyam style that embodies artistic expression
imbued with a sense of spirituality. Performed
in silk costumes with eye-catching colors, the
dancers are adorned with jewelry from head
to toe. Other dances to be performed include:
Garba, a folk dance from the western region
of India. It is performed in a circle by dancers
in colorful costumes moving rhythmically to
songs with paces that become quicker and
quicker; Dandiya, another traditional folk dance
performed by men and women using two
sticks. Accompanied by music, the clicking of
the sticks in various patterns make for a catchy
beat; Bhangra, a folk dance from the northern
state of Punjab, is a vigorous dance performed
with kicks, leaps and acrobatic moves to fast-


paced music and drum beats; Bollywood dance,
a modern style of dance seen in the popular
movie industry of India named Bollywood.
Bollywood is a melting pot of western pop, jazz,
hip-hop, Latin and Indian classical music all
rolled into one.
There will also be a fashion show that will
feature traditional clothing styles from India,
accompanied by upbeat Bollywood music.
An array of Indian cuisine will be available to
top off the India experience. Dishes chosen from
the cuisines of several different regions of India
will be available for purchase. Choose from
mouth-watering Dosa, from south India, this
is a crisp lentil crepe with a potato filling and
chutney on the side, or the well-known chicken
tikka from north India which is grilled bone-
less pieces of chicken, marinated in yogurt and
spice. Or try Biriyani, the popular rice prepara-
tion with meat or vegetables in aromatic spices,
to be eaten with a yogurt salad. Other dished
will be available as well.
Patrons can purchase Indian jewelry and
clothes that also will be on display.
Tickets for the event are $10 and children
ages 6 to 12 are $5. Tickets can be purchased by
calling 941-639-0025 and also at the door.

Be guided through Fort Myers


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Whether in London, Paris or Fort Myers,
savvy travelers begin with a city tour. It's a
quick and pleasant way to get one's bearings
and pick up a little history.
Now through April 17, there is a docent-led
90-minute tour of the city's riverfront district
each Wednesday and Saturday that departs
at 10 a.m. from the Southwest Florida
Museum of History, 2031 Jackson St. Arrive
by 9:45 a.m. The cost is $10 for adults and
$5 for students with ID. Museum admission
is an additional $5. For reservations, call
239-321-7430. For information on the tour
or the museum, which once was a depot for
the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, visit www.
museumofhistory.org. Also on the site is a
replica of an old Florida Cracker house and
a restored Pullman train such as those that
brought visitors to the city back in the 1940s
and 1950s.
Through Feb. 16 in the museum is"Art
Expressions of Latin America: 500 Years of
History and Heritage."This show coincides
with the state's 500th anniversary.
Operating year-round, Wednesday through
Sunday, are professionally escorted tours
of the city offered by TrueTours, a company
founded by Fort Myers historian Gina Taylor.
"Our guides concentrate on the personali-
ties of the men who built this town and some
of the shenanigans that went on,"she said.
"People enjoy the stories."
Taylor seems to have stories about every


historic building and anecdotes about the
people connected with the buildings and this
historic town which is in the midst of a major
revitalization. TrueTours begin and end at the
Franklin Shops, 2200 First St. The building
is steps from the Hotel Indigo, Starbucks
and several restaurants, although all of First
Street might be referred to as Restaurant
Row.
The price for this 90-minute tour is $10 per
person for adults and $6 for students. Tours
depart at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday through
Sunday and at 5 p.m. on the first Friday of the
month, just before the monthly Art Walk in
town.
TrueTours also offers a 90-minute Public Art
Tour at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings and a
90-minute Haunted History Tour at 8 p.m. on
the second and fourth Fridays of the month.
The Haunted History tour also can be booked
for a private party.
The public art tour includes the light sculp-
tures at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center,
the Fire Dance panels at the Justice Center
Parking Garage and many other public art
works. You will want to see the Berne Davis
light sculptures at night to get the full effect
of these unique round metal sculptures. The
public art tour is $15 for adults. The company
also offers a Downtown Revitalization Tour
and a 75-minute architecture tour.
"I also offer private tours for groups of
10 or more,"Taylor said.
Reservations are required for all the
TrueTours offerings and student pricing is
available for each of the tours. Spanish and


Timing key to savings at park


By SUSAN THURSTON
TAMPA BAY TIMES
Ifyou can plan in advance, Legoland ticket
prices just got a little less expensive.
The Winter Haven theme park has
announced a new ticket pricing system that
allows"guests a quick and convenient way
to save on single-day park admission with
the launch of its new online variable pricing
program."
The"Pick- a-Date and Save" program lets
Legoland guests go online and choose a date
eight or more days in advance. The guest saves
$15 per admission ticket (as low as $64 for
adults, and $54 for children 3 to 12 and adults
60 and older). A one-day regular ticket start at
$79 for adults, and $69 for children 3 to 12 and
adults 60 and older.
Previously, online tickets to Legoland were
good for any day. Under the new pricing
system, guests must pick a date for the discount
but also can buy open-ended tickets at full
price. Pick-a-Date tickets are nonrefundable
but Legoland will try to work with guests if
an emergency arises and they can't get to the
park, Swidler said.
Can't book that far ahead? Guests can save
$10 per ticket when planning a trip two to
seven days in advance. The savings apply to the
main theme park as well as the water park for
one-day or two-day park visits.
"Legoland Florida's new Pick-a-Date and Save


program is one of the first of its kind in variable
pricing for theme parks in Central Florida and
throughout the nation"said Adrian Jones,
general manager of Legoland Florida."Fami-
lies no longer need discounts or other special
offers to save year-round at Legoland Florida.
Simply put, families who plan ahead now get
additional savings:'
"We hope it will drive people to plan their
vacationssaid Jill Swidler, marketing manager
for Legoland Florida.

Third Thursday



in Punta Gorda


I , ,, ,, , , ,, i iii I i N i ii, , , i

It's that time again in Punta Gorda for the
Third Thursday Gallery Walk. The merchants
are geared up for yet another art-infused
evening. Here is what to expect at this
month's Gallery Walk:
Stop by Sea Grape Gallery and help
celebrate their 25th Anniversary during the
February Gallery Walk. Most of your favorite
artists will be there. In addition, Sue Krasny,
their Artist of the Month, will demonstrate
oil painting using a palette knife. It is a
process that layers on the paint to let the
light come through to the viewer.
A silent auction to benefit the Charlotte
County Homeless Coalition will be part of
the festivities at Centennial Bank. Auction
items will include Tampa Bay Rays items,
artwork, gift baskets, antiques, restaurant
gift certificates and more. Local artists will
also be exhibiting and selling their varied
creations. Members of the Visual Arts Center
and the Arts and Humanities Council of
Charlotte County enjoy the festivities and
prove this is truly an art community. A
record number of artists will include paint-
ings, glass-work, jewelry, beading, pottery,
photography and more. Complimentary
wine and cheese will be served, and live
music will again be provided by very
talented local musician Paul Cottrell. All this
and more at Centennial Bank, 401 Taylor St.
For more information, call 942-347-3321.
Creations Gallery will proudly feature
two popular and talented local artists in
February. Marta Eagle will be there with
a one-night Trunk Show to introduce her


unique and stunning beaded wrap brace-
lets. Each one-of-a-kind piece is designed
to make a statement and meticulously
beaded to encase the arm in a spectacular
display of wearable art. Let her design one
for you. You will also want to be among
the first to see the latest from Roxie Vetter,
their amazing "think outside the box" artist
whose award-winning abstract artwork
can be seen in finest homes and businesses
from Florida to Michigan. Roxie's large
collages have been evolving for several
years, and you are sure to be impressed
with the latest from this dynamic and
groundbreaking acrylic and mixed-media
artist. Finally, as always, be sure to stay for
a sip of their famous punch, served with a
smile by
Ed Burd.
Sunart Gallery will be featuring Phil
Bohley with his delightful wood turnings as
well as Judy Rehill with her artistic jewelry
and stained glass. Patti will continue to how
her works as well. The Port Charlotte Honor
art society will be on hand as well showing
their talents.
Big Cheese Eatery will feature Jazz in
their garden as well as Carol Davis' paintings
in the restaurant.
The whole town will be Jazzing it up for
this gallery walk. Jazz will be everywhere on
this beautiful evening. Bring your friends,
or meet them downtown. Stroll, have a few
sips of wine, buy a few things and enjoy the
entire event. Restaurants will be open so
you can make reservations ahead of time
if you so desire. The most important thing
of all is to just come downtown on Gallery
Walk night and enjoy!

GO THINGS TO DO


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Almost every afternoon and evening pods
of dolphins leap and perform alongside the
"Katara,"a unique tour boat operated by Boca
Boat Cruises. The 21-foot"Katara"a customized
New England lobster boat, is a perfect size for
accommodating 13 passengers comfortably,
according to owner Kathleen Wolcott. "Passen-
gers often tell me how much they enjoy the close
camaraderie of a sunset or day cruise that is
narrated by the Captain himselfshe explained.
"All cruises and charters depart from the public
docks on 5th Street on Boca Grande, and during
the winter season, we're pretty booked. It's a
good idea to make reservations."
The 4:30 p.m. Boca Boat Sundowner Cruise
at $39 per person is a popular choice. There is
so much natural beauty to enjoy when cruising
from Gasparilla Sound and Bayou to the mouth
of the Gulf of Mexico, according to First Mate,
Maria Young and her husband, Captain Ralph,
who, after six years, are experts at narrating
tours.
The tour begins slowly, and Captain Ralph
points to huge osprey nests with tiny occupants
peeking out curiously as if to greet tourists along
the way. After passing some impressive new
homes and a number of famous historic build-
ings, including the magnificent Gasparilla Inn,
the Captain slows down at another attraction,
the oldest shrimp boat in Florida. He'll go on to
explain the difference between the red, black


and white mangroves that are so crucial to the
survival of the bay.
From October to March, passengers will
enjoy viewing hundreds of snow-white visiting
pelicans who roost on sandbars, not trees. When
the boat speeds toward the mouth of the Gulf,
the show begins. "Dolphins are attracted by the
sound of the motor and people clapping. We
know exactly where the dolphins live and play
and even recognize them by name"said Maria
Young. "We've practiced over the years, and we
know that dolphins play because they want to,
not because they have to, in water theme parks.
They love to show off, much to the delight of
our passengers:'The Sundowner Cruise ends
with the spectacular sunset. Appetizers and soft
drinks are available, and guests are welcome to
bring beer or wine to enjoy while waiting for the
"grand finale"of the evening.
Additional daily cruises are offered aboard the
"Katara."A half-day lunch cruise to historic Cabbage
Key that departs at 10:30 a.m. is offered at $59 per
person. There you can enjoy a "Margaritaville"expe-
rience, feed the ducks, and climb the water tower.
A Useppa Island half-day cruise includes a visit to
a botanical paradise where you can have lunch at
the Collier Inn overlooking Pine Island Sound and
tour the small museum at $59 per person. Charters
are also possible at half-day and full-day rates. To
reserve a tour or charter a birthday, anniversary,
wedding party or a lunch/dinner trip to seaside
eateries call Kathleen Wolcott at 1-888-416-BOAT or
go to: www.bocaboat.com.

"The Drunkard,"a musical melodrama
composed by Barry Manilow and Bro
Herrod opens Friday at The Glenridge
Performing Arts Center in Sarasota.
According to a release from the Glen-
ridge, the story is about "the good, the
bad, and the besotted."The story is based
on the W.H.S. Smith story of the same
name, but with much poetic license and
some mayhem by Herrod and Manilow.
The characters include a sweet young


bride, her innocent husband affected
by the evils of alcohol and a nefarious
lawyer.
This is said to be the first musical on the
GPAC stage.
Performances will be at 8 p.m. Feb. 22
and 23 and March 1 and 2, with matinees
at 2 p.m. on Feb. 24 and March 2. The
Glenridge Performing Arts Center is at
7333 Scotland Way, Sarasota.
Tickets are $22.50 per person for the
public. GPAC families and students pay
$17.50. Call the box office at

THE ARTS GO





Let "Gypsy" entertain you


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
How did a nice girl like Louise find
herself starring in a House of Burlesque
strip joint? If you're a music theater buff
familiar with the play "Gypsy," you already
know the answer.
The play, first performed in 1957, has
earned its place as one of the most popular
productions of all time. It's the story of
a domineering stage mother, her two
daughters, and one of the most patient
and adoring men a woman would ever
want. Ethel Merman starred as the original
Mama Rose and Jack Klugman as the
man who loves her. Sandra Church played
Louise, the daughter who accidentally
becomes "Gypsy."
Artistic Director Nancy Fueyo knows


all about "Gypsy." A classically trained
opera singer, she's also performed as
Mama Rose in "Gypsy," one of her favorite
musicals. When not performing in jazz
concerts, summer stock productions, or
at SW Florida theaters, Fueyo operates
the South of Broadway Performing Arts
Academy in Cape Coral where she teaches
voice and music theory. In a few weeks she
will perform as Sister Margaretta in "The
Sound of Music"at the Broadway Palm
Dinner Theater in Fort Myers. For now she
is happy to be directing her first produc-
tion with the Players. It's important to
note that"Gypsy"is a family-friendly play,
and a number of performers are children
from the Port Charlotte area, according to
Fueyo.
The demanding role of Mama Rose is
brilliantly played by the energetic Debbie


Brandal. She's not afraid to belt out the
familiar"Everything's Coming up Roses"
and "Together Wherever We Go." Brandal
has been a favorite of local theater goers
for over 14 years. Her"psychotic break-
down" is one of the most dramatic scenes
in the play. Thomas O'Brien, perfect as the
long-suffering Herbie, also portrays Jocko,
the director of a children's Vaudeville act.
Jackie Simiele as Louise, has performed
in 15 shows including "Mame"and"Bye
Bye Birdie." She's the front end of a silly
dancing cow in the play, but the scene
where she sings to her own 2-month-old
pet lamb is a real tearjerker. Haley Brown,
a senior at Port Charlotte High, is Dainty
June. Theater patrons may remember her


as Gretl in "The Sound of Music."
Priscilla Donnelly as Electra, Eva Marie
Firmani as Tessie, and Lorrie Pearl as
Mazeppa perform as strippers who teach
Louise how to work a crowd. They wow the
audience by singing and wiggling their
way through "You Gotta Have a Gimmick."
The Charlotte Players'third Main Stage
Production of their 2012-13 season,
"Gypsy," is currently being performed at
the elegant Cultural Center Theater in
Port Charlotte. This week, performances
are scheduled for Feb. 21,22 and 23. The
Cultural Center is located on 2280 Aaron
St., in Port Charlotte. Adult tickets cost
$24, Students, $12. Call 625-4175 for
reservations.

Venice Theatre proves worthy of its nick-
name, "the theater that rarely sleeps"with the
announcement of its coming 64th season.
Announced recently, the list of 18 offerings
includes a balance of newer shows, classics
like"Oklahoma"and"A Christmas Carol"and
entertaining cabaret shows. Ticket sales begin
this month for the 2013-2014 season.
MainStage productions for the coming
2013-2014 season include: "Becky's New
Car" (Oct. 1-20),"Hairspray"(Nov. 12-Dec.
2), "Boeing, Boeing"(Jan. 14-Feb. 2, 2014),
"Oklahoma!" (Feb. 18-March 16), "Five Guys
Named Moe" (April 1-19) and "The Elephant
Man" (April 29-May 11).
In contrast to the Broadway-type nature
of MainStage productions, the theater offers
more contemporary works in itsYvonneT.
Pinkerton Theatre which is home to its Stage
II productions. For the coming season, those
works include: "Frankenstein"(Oct. 10-27),
"Superior Donuts" (Jan. 9-26), "Underneath the
Lintel"(March 13-30) and "Parallel Lives"(April
10-27).
The theater's Generations productions are
not only family-friendly but often feature
whole families in the productions both
on and offstage. For the coming year, the
Generations series includes "Joseph and
the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"(July
24- Aug. 4), "Schoolhouse Rock Live!"(Sept.
23 -29), "A Christmas Carol"Dec. 19-22) and
"How I Became a Pirate"(May 8-25). Some of


these will be on the main stage and some in
the Pinkerton."Joseph"also is the summer
stock show. Student cast members will be
admitted by audition to an extensive program
of theatrical training built around the show's
production. They will work on lights, costumes,
marketing and other aspects while also
rehearsing their songs, dances and lines.
Rounding out the season are four cabaret-
style shows that will be produced in the
Pinkerton, beginning with a Summer Cabaret
Festival (July 19-Aug. 25). The other three will
be:"I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change!"
(Nov. 1-24). "The Marvelous Wonderettes"
(Dec. 6-22) and "Radio Gals"(Feb. 7-March 2).
The breadth and depth of the season's offer-
ings coupled with the theater's education and
outreach programs and success have put the
theater on the national map. According to the
American Association of Community Theatres,
Venice Theatre is the "third largest community
theater in the country."
Check with the box office or online for a
variety of subscription packages ranging in
price from $35 for a child's ticket to the Genera-
tions series up to $319 for the theater's Golden
Ticket to all 18 productions.
Yet to be announced are many individual
concerts and programs that will be added to
the schedule throughout the year. Some will be
fundraisers for the theater because ticket sales
rarely cover the cost of productions. Others will
be such special shows as the Loveland Follies
and the Silver Fox Review.

LIVE MUSIC G O


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


Gas House Gorillas, a locally based
rock band, has added a new twist to
their sound. Already a crowd favorite
wherever they play, the five-piece band
has recently stepped up its game by
revamping their lineup.
"We have three new members, and 26
new songs;'," lead vocalist Renee Adorna
said. "Our music is even more danceable
now, but it does still have a rock edge."
The three reasons for the different kind
of sound are the three new members.
Mike Opeka, a guitarist and vocalist, was
previously with the band for a time, but
was away for a while and just recently
came back. Cuinn Griffin, vocalist and
bass player, is the youngest member of
the group, but is a very skilled musician.
Also recently joining the group is
Michael Cochran, who sings lead vocals
and plays the guitar, keyboard, bass and
mandolin.
"He was with a group called The
Cherry Bombs,"' Adorna said. "He's a
musical wizard and a great musician. He's
become the musical leader of the group,
and we look at him as kind of a music
teacher."
Adorna says that the new musicians
and the addition of keyboards has


allowed the group, which also includes
her husband Tommy, who plays the
drums and sings vocals, to explore other
genres of music.
"Our fans can expect more dance
songs,"' she said. "We're doing songs
from Black Eyed Peas, Neon Trees and
Alex Clare. But I am still doing my Alice
in Chains, Melissa Etheridge and Stevie
Nicks."
She says that so far, the fans seem
to approve of the change in the band's
setlist.
"We've never had a problem with
crowds-we always have 200 to 400
people at each show,"'she said. "People
like the new change-up and new songs."
Before last summer, the Adornas felt
they needed to take a break, and decided
to disband the group for a while. After
all, Renee had been singing in bands
since she was 16 years old. But as time
went on, she and Tommy realized that
a life without music was not for them,
and they started thinking about playing
again. That's when the new Gas House
Gorillas was created.
"Tommy was going crazy not playing
his drums," Adorna said. "We started
practicing with these guys and I was just
blown away by their musicianship. And
I do love performing-it's definitely a
natural gh former"

and is originally from Whiting,
Ind. He is a retired newspaper
advertising manager, a singer/
songwriter and music collector.
Upbeat focuses on pop and rock
music of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.


Top of Billboard Chart on February 20

Our Canadian friends can enjoy plenty of bragging rights when it comes to the pop
rock music of the'60s,'70s and'80s. Neil Young, prolific songwriter and rock superstar is
from Toronto. He is joined by fellow Ontarians Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot, both
outstanding singer-songwriters, as well as early pop crooner Paul Anka (33 charted
singles). Randy Bachman, from Manitoba, led two popular'60s-'70s bands, The Guess
Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Three other Canadian singer-songwriters with
diverse styles include Leonard Cohen, Bryan Adams and Tom Rush.
Another Rush, the group, is one of the hardest rocking trios ever. So is Heart, formed
by Seattle sisters with a Vancouver band, plus giant'80s rockers Loverboy. Several Cana-
dian members of other popular groups have left their mark, too, among them: John
Kay of Steppenwolf, David Clayton-Thomas of Blood, Sweat & Tears, Denny Doherty of
The Mamas and the Papas and Zal Yanovsky of the Lovin'Spoonful. Other Canadians
in the rock/pop history book include lan and Sylvia, Andy Kim, The Bells, Triumph, K.D.
Lang, Bruce Cockburn and Anne Murray, the woman who chirped the tune "Snowbird."

and has been covered by Johnny Nash, Tony Orlando & Dawn and The Spinners, among

Steve Padgett of Punta Gorda.

Sunnybreeze featured in Golf Business Magazine


E/N//' I' February 20-26, 2013


By DEBBIE FLESSNER

Bill Baker has a long history with golf.
In the business since 1968 and one of the
founding members of the National Golf
Course Owners Association, he and his wife
Kathy have owned Sunnybreeze Golf Course
in Arcadia since 1974.
Though with a long career in the industry,
it's not the first time he has been written
about; this month, he happens to be on the
cover of Golf Business Magazine. He says he
was featured as part of a story being
written about his fundraising
techniques.
"They were doing a
.49 story


on crowd funding or kick-starting,"' he said.
"They heard that we did something similar
to that about 20 years ago. We funded our
expansion from nine to 18 holes, and then
from 18 to 27, through our membership.
That was the basis of the article."
Crowd funding is defined as the collective
effort of individuals who pool their money
to support efforts initiated by other people
or organizations. By achieving that with
Sunnybreeze's members, Baker was able to
not only expand the golf course, but also to
build a 15,000-square-foot luxurious club-
house in 1990. Another course expansion in
1999 of a nine-hole Par 3 course brought the
total number of course holes to 36.
"But in 2004, Hurricane Charley
a l %.i


hit and we lost our clubhouse and the Par 3,"
Baker said. "It cost a half a million dollars to
clean things up."
He says that even today, they're not
back to where they were, but the member-
ship is still strong and things are going
well. They're even in the process of selling
partnerships to help fund a rebuilding of
the clubhouse and dining facility, Bistro on
the Green.
"We're open to the public, but we have
125 members," he said. "The memberships
include annual greens fees. We do have
some lifetime memberships available -
people can lock in annual fees for life by
becoming a partner."
At Sunnybreeze, you can enjol privacy

ik&^ .4^


and nature on a nice mixture of open, tree-
lined and water holes. Baker said that with
their centralized location to Charlotte and
DeSoto counties, they really do cater to the
public.
"We have a lot of monthly events as a
club, but the play drops off significantly
after Easter," he said. "And during the
summer, we have a lot of discounted prices
for the locals."
Sunnybreeze is located at 8135 SW Sunny-
breeze Road, in Arcadia. For more informa-
tion about the golf course or memberships,
visit the website at www.sunnybreezegolf.
com, or call 888-663-2420.

Opening lead: King of 0

Boxing has given rise to many
colorful terms, some of which have
been incorporated into bridge. Here
is an example of an "uppercut," as it
applies at the bridge table.
There is much discussion whether,
when holding four cards in each
minor, it is correct to open one club
or one diamond. Either would have
posed a rebid problem for North after


South's one-spade response, and the
ugly one no trump is actually the
lesser of evils.
West led the king of diamonds.
What is the correct card for East to
play?
East cannot afford to drop the
queen in an effort to show a
doubleton that card promises the
jack, allowing partner to underlead
the ace next should West want to
transfer the lead to East. However,
after East followed with the deuce it
could do no harm to continue the suit
whatever the distribution, and the
defense became easy when East
contributed the queen under the ace.
A third diamond was led and, since
ruffing with either the ten or the
queen would promote West's jack,
East was in the fortunate position of
not being able to go wrong. At the
table East uppercut with the queen,
forcing declarer to overruff with the
king. The ace fetched East's ten, but
West remained with J 8 of trumps
over declarer's 9 6 and had to score
two trump tricks for a one-trick set.

Epley maneuver can

vertigo, not tinnil


DEAR DR. ROACH:
I had vertigo a couple
of months ago and
underwent the Epley
maneuver, which cured
me. However, I am now
experiencing tinnitus,
especially in bed. What
causes it, and is there a
cure? G.M.
ANSWER: Tinnitus
(tin-ITE-us or TIN-a-
tus) is a ringing sensa-
tion in one or both ears.
It is very common and
can be transitory or
permanent. It has many
causes.
One common cause is
Meniere's disease a
strong possibility, in
your case, because the
combination of vertigo
and tinnitus is char-
acteristic of Meneire's
disease. After years,
Meniere's disease also
can cause hearing loss.
An ENT specialist can
be helpful in sorting
out the diagnosis.
The Epley maneuver
is most commonly used
for another kind of
vertigo, called benign
paroxysmal positional
vertigo. However, many
sources indicate that
the Epley maneuver
helps for the vertigo
of Meniere's disease as
well.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
have arthritis in several
disks in my lower back.
My legs are affected.
I've tried epidurals
and ablation, with no
relief. I also had been
taking 800 milligrams of
ibuprofen three times
per day for 10 months,
and I am now down to
one or two tablets per
day. Is this safe? Will
this damage my kid-
neys? S.M.
ANSWER: Lower-
back arthritis can be
frustratingly painful.
Treatments like epidur-
al injection and surgery
are helpful for some
people, but not at all
for others, and should
be undertaken only
after careful consider-
ation. Regular exercise
helps almost everybody,
and most medications
are generally safe but
variably effective.
Ibuprofen is one of
the safest pain and
inflammation medica-
tions we have, but, like
all anti-inflammatory
medicines, it can dam-
age the kidneys. When
taken regularly in doses
like yours, your doctor
may want to periodical-
ly test both urine and
blood to look for any
signs of kidney dam-
age. If caught early, the

damage to the kidney
usually is reversible.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
have a ferritin level of
620 ng/ml. It is sup-
posed to be between
22-322. Up until three
months ago, I was a
daily user of alcohol.
However, my doctor
told me to stop. It has
been three months
since I have had a
drink. The level has
come down (it was
683). What does this
level mean, and what
needs to be done to get
it back to normal? Is
alcohol totally out, or
can I have a drink once
in a while? M.P.
ANSWER: Ferritin is
a protein made by the
liver that is used to
transport iron in the
body.
Many things can
cause blood ferritin
levels to be increased,
including alcohol,
infection and a ge-
netic condition called
hemochromatosis, in
which the body absorbs
too much iron. A level
above 600 is suspicious
for hemochromatosis,
and your doctor can
easily obtain additional
blood tests to look for
this relatively com-
mon condition. It's
important to catch it
early, since too much
iron damages the heart,
bone marrow and
adrenal gland (among
other things), as well as
the liver.
I would recommend
staying away from
alcohol entirely until
the cause of the high
ferritin level is clear.

individual letters, but

Living lettuce gets second life


Dear Heloise: With regard
to living lettuce (Heloise
here: a previous column on
the hydroponically grown
lettuce that comes in a
plastic container), I agree
that it is so good. I took it
one step further. Once I had
used all the leaves, I told my
husband that I was going to
plant the roots outside with
the rest of the lettuce I have
grown. He laughed, but I
laughed last when it grew
again, and we had salad
from that plant for a long
time. I've had success four
of the six times I've tried
it! Waste not, want not --
Nancy L. in New Jersey
Wow! You certainly got
your money's worth' So,
how did that "last laugh"
salad taste? Yummy, I hope.

War cake
Dear Heloise: I have
often used the recipe for
War Cake that was in your
column years ago. I have
a couple of suggestions:
1) Add candied fruit. 2)
Add 14 cup of vegetable oil
and exchange a portion of
the flour for a package of
instant pumpkin pudding
(Heloise here: This pud-
ding is sold seasonally).
The results are amazing.
- Nancy in Indiana
Nancy, that's the great
thing about recipes they
can be altered! Readers,
here is the War Cake
recipe. Mix together:
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups hot water
2 teaspoons shortening
1/ cup to % cup raisins
1 teaspoon salt

Boyfriend's X-rated experience


leaves woman
DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend, "Doug" (24), and I
(22) have been in a long-
distance relationship for a
year, but we were friends
for a couple of years
before that. I had never
had a serious relation-
ship before and lacked
experience. Doug has not
only been in two other
long-term relationships,
but has had sex with more
than 15 women. One of
them is an amateur porn
actress.
I knew about this,
but it didn't bother me
until recently. Doug had
a party, and while he was
drunk he told one of his
buddies in front of me
- that he should watch a
certain porn film starring
his ex-girlfriend. It made
me feel awkward. The
next day he apologized.
Of course, having
learned her name, I
couldn't help myself from
searching for her on the
Internet. Now I can't stop
comparing myself to her,
and I feel intimidated and
frustrated.
I have been struggling
with how to get over it.
Doug has told me many
times that he loves me
and I believe him. But
those stupid, drunken
comments really knocked
me down. How do I get
over my boyfriend's past?
- ECLIPSED BY A "STAR"
IN NEWYORK
DEAR ECLIPSED: A
giant step in the right
direction would be to quit
comparing yourself to a
porn actress. In his addled
condition, your immature
boyfriend couldn't resist
bragging to his buddies
because he thought it
would impress them with
his prowess. If he had
serious feelings about her,
he would still be with her,
not in a relationship with
you.
That said, it would be in
your best interest to find
out if this woman really
was a "girlfriend" or one
of his one-night stands.
If he is in a long-distance
relationship with you and
tends to be promiscuous,
you should be more
concerned about his


feeling blue

Dear Abby

judgment than how to get
over his past.
DEAR ABBY: We have
always purchased rather
than leased our cars. One
of them has 225,000 miles
on the odometer and is
running well. I have two
friends who lease expen-
sive foreign cars. Keeping
the mileage down on their
cars is important to them,
especially when it comes
time to return them at the
end of the lease.
Because of this, I find
myself driving more
often than I should. One
friend attends a weekly
meeting with me, and
we're supposed to take
turns driving each other
every other week. But
somehow I end up at the
wheel more often. I'd hate
to start writing down our
outings, but I'm begin-
ning to feel used.
While I respect their
decision to lease expen-
sive new cars, it is not
my responsibility to keep
their expenses down.
Both of these women are
in a better financial posi-
tion than I am, although
we are all "comfortable."
Any ideas about how
to approach this without
seeming petty? It has
been going on for a long
while and is starting to
bother me. DRIVEN
TOO FAR IN LONG
BEACH, CALIE
DEAR DRIVEN TOO
FAR: If you feel that you
are being taken advantage
of, then you probably
are. I recommend you
wean these ladies off
your chauffeur services
by being less available
when they need a ride.
And if you are asked why,
remind them of your
original agreement to
share the driving duties
50-50.


"Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then
cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your
eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already
to harvest. -John 4:35.
Only in eternity will we know how many souls were
lost while we were waiting for the right time to reach
them. "He that winneth souls is wise."

I'M THINKING
OF GETTING A
FACELIFT.
. k,


Venice Gondolier readers: Look for the puzzle solution in the Our Town section.


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19).The "you and me
against the world" mentality is not going to get you
very far. If you feel that the current is against you, it
might be time to turn around and go with the flow.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).Your inclination is to
persist. Since it's in your very nature to keep going
until the job is finished, you must take care to make
sure the job you take on is worth doing in the first
place.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Good fortune comes


is for you. Accepting your fair share now will allow
you to be much more generous later when you can
really afford it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll return to an old
pattern.There's the possibility of getting back to-
gether with an ex or coming back to a job you held
in the past. You'll pick up right where you left off.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Deals come together. You'll
be in a position to name your price. Start in the
middle instead of starting high. You could get more
than what's absolutely fair, but it won't benefit you


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Secrecy among the
higher ranks is not usually a good sign. Open com-
munication is healthier. Much good can come from
well-informed teams working together.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just because ideas are
crazy doesn't mean they are false or won't work.
Things have been greatly improved by crazy ideas
before, and the next one just might come from you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Playfulness is more
interesting than drama.Taking creative endeavors
too seriously drains them of their vital essence.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).There's power
inside your vocal cords. Slow, deliberate, confident
speech will cinch a deal. A few words are enough to
convey your strength.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It makes no sense
to continue doing what's not working. Instead of
waiting for results that aren't coming, change your
action and go for different results.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).You're back to becom-
ing a student of your surroundings. Your environ-
ment is what it is. Instead of trying to manipulate it,


You'll develop your talents with a light heart. you try to know it.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A failed experiment has
more to teach you than a successful one. Review
what happened, and identify the contributing
factors. Knowing what doesn't work brings you to
what does.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 20). The next seven
weeks will lighten your load and brighten your path.
March brings romance. In April, you'll trade your old
image for a new one. Professional developments
in April alter your viewpoint, and your goals will
change as a result. Scorpio and Taurus people adore
you. Your lucky numbers are: 30,1,22,31 and 11.
