Tragedy averted


SUN PHOTOS BY RONALD DUPONT JR.
The Ferris wheel and other rides from the Italian Feast & Carnival can be seen in the background of where an out-of-control airplane hit a ditch
Saturday at the Venice Airport. Multiple professional pilots at the airport said if the ditch had not stopped the plane, it could have gotten into the air
and possibly crashed into the festival.

An airplane unexpect-

Venice Airport Saturday,
Feb. 23 when the pilot
exited the plane to look at
the propeller.
The Piper Malibu Mirage
was stopped from causing

the tarmac and hit a ditch.
Nobody was hurt.
Multiple professional pilots

accident said the plane had

For these kids, sports is about joy


No challenge


too great for players i


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR
At first glance, David Clark
seems no different than your
typical 6-year-old.
He chases his older brother,
Andrew, when Andrew isn't
chasing him. He loves base-
ball, his face coated with a
smile Saturday while darting
around the bases at Chuck
Reiter Field.
Make no mistake: David is
not your typical 6-year-old.
Lori and Dave Clark's second
son was delivered six weeks
early, and doctors immediately
noticed abnormalities. The
bones in David's head and face
hadn't fully developed, leaving
parts of his brain unprotected
by his skull.
David's first two weeks were
spent in the neonatal intensive
care unit. Doctors told the


Clarks that David might be
mute, and that his chances of
walking were minimal.
"There wasn't a lot of good
prognosis when they dis-
charged us," Lori said. "He's
just a miracle that he can even
talk and walk at this point."
He's already been admitted
to All Children's Hospital in
St. Petersburg for six separate
craniotomies, a procedure
during which a brain surgeon
drills into the skull. A seventh
is slated for June.
Not that you would know
that fact watching David on
the baseball field.
David's long blonde bangs
conceal a forehead that
remains vulnerable to the
slightest bit of contact. Most
kids come away from a bad-
hop grounder with a welt of

capability, adding to the cost,
according to the engineer.
As a gesture of impartiality,
two weeks ago the city hired
an outside engineering firm,
Wilson Structural Consultants,
Inc., of Sarasota, to inspect the
building after the city building
department cited the arena as
unsafe due to failing sections
of its massive plywood-covered
roof.
The department gave the
Circus Arts Foundation, which
is raising funds to renovate the
facility, 60 days to come up
with a plan to make the venue
safe or demolish it.
The city-funded engineer-
ing report, presented Tuesday
before the Venice City Council,
left plenty of fodder for both
supporters and detractors of
the Save-The-Arena effort.
The good news is Wilson
found the steel beams to be
of good quality, stable even
without exterior sheathing.

ARENA
FROM PAGE 1

However, the report
concluded the building
"cannot be placed into a
condition which com-
plies with current build-
ing code requirements
without a complete and
thorough analysis of
all framing, including
trusses, bracing, columns
and foundations.
"It is likely that
significant reinforcing
of existing framing
members and some re-
configuration of lateral
load-carrying systems
would be required to
accommodate current
code requirements,"
Wilson said in the
report.
The costs associated
could be astronomical.
"Once specific repairs
have been designed,
it may be determined
that renovation is not
economically feasible,"
Wilson wrote.
The Venice City
Council specifically
asked Wilson to consider
whether a partial demoli-
tion could be done.


He concluded strip-
ping the main staging
area of the building of its
outer plywood sheathing
wouldn't destabilize the
structure, which had
been designed originally
as self supporting.
That's not necessarily
true of the surrounding
add-on structures, like
a former restaurant,
kitchen area and offices,
Wilson said.
Leaving the steel fram-
ing open to the elements
for any extended period,
however, could lead to
additional corrosion of
steel framing, trusses,
beams, purlins and the
existing grandstand
frame, Wilson said.
Vince LaPorta, Building
and Code Enforcement
director, said it was a
significant finding that
the original building was
designed as a basically
open structure.
He said the arena's
wind profile became
much bigger when the
grandstand walls were
enclosed, resulting in
higher wind loads on
the overall structure.
Higher wind loads, today,
increase the danger in its
current condition.

"That is a very key
thing," LaPorta said.
"There's absolutely
nothing salvageable (on
that roof)," said Council
Member Dave Sherman,
one of the original
Circus Arts Foundation
supporters. "In my
opinion, this building
was designed to support
high wire and trapeze
acts. This is just a highly
modified tent."
Sherman said he sup-
ports an effort to save the
local circus history, but
not the building.
The engineering
report raised other
questions. Even if the
existing roof and roof
deck could be tempo-
rarily removed without
destabilizing the
structure so it could be
renovated, who would
pay for it? The city has
said it can't afford it.
The foundation has
plenty of fundraising
ideas, but only $40,000
in cash.
Airport Administrator
Chris Rozansky told
the council the Federal
Aviation Administration
was willing to allow the
city to use its airport
fund to demolish the


building, but not to
renovate it.
Council members were
coy about the founda-
tion's inability to raise
substantial revenue for
the project.
"At least James
(Hagler, city archives
director) came up with
a million-dollar-donor,"
said Council Member
Kit McKeon to founda-
tion supporter Larry
Ivey, one of three people
who provided public
testimony.
McKeon was referring
to a $1 million donation
by a citizen toward a
$6 million Venice Area
Museum project in the
planning stage.
The foundation "hasn't
been able to come up
with even one major
donor. It's concerning,"
McKeon said. "I wasn't
born there, but I'm in
Missouri now ... show
me the money."
Foundation repre-
sentatives said they're
doubling their efforts
to form some kind of
partnership.
"We're looking for that
sugar daddy," Ivey said.

to veterans after her mar-
riage to her first husband,
an Air Force veteran. She
became a member of the

served as an officer for
more than 20 years, going
through the chairs and
serving as the auxiliary

others projects through-
out the community.
She joined the Marine

dedication she gave to all
things veteran. Over the

Covert selected to lead Pine View


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Stephen Covert, re-
cently selected to lead
the Pine View School
for gifted
students, is
no stranger
to Florida.
The
Virginia
educator
has laid on
COVERT the pristine
Siesta
Key Beaches while
vacationing with his
wife and children, and
worked the aluminum
baskets searching for
shark's teeth on Venice
Beach.
Sarasota County
Schools Superintendent
Lori White named
Covert the next princi-
pal of Pine View School
in Osprey last week.
Covert, 41, who
currently serves as
executive director of
Human Resources for
Spotsylvania County
Schools, is scheduled
to begin July 1 as
principal of the school,
pending School Board
approval.
He will succeed Steve
Largo, who has been
principal of Pine View
since it opened in
1988. The school serves
intellectually gifted
students in grades
two-12.
"I am being entrusted
with a unique gift,"
Covert said. "Pine View
is one of the most
widely recognized and
acclaimed schools for
gifted students in the
nation. I also know I
have some big shoes to
fill as Steve Largo re-
tires, but I couldn't be
more excited to build
on the school's reputa-
tion and success."
Covert learned about
Pine View by surfing


the Internet, research-
ing programs for his
9-year-old gifted son.
"My wife and I are
pretty active in re-
searching resources to
make sure we are going
to do the best job we
can for our children,"
Covert said. "When I
saw the (job) posting, a
light bulb went off."
Covert has served in
just about every key
school administra-
tive position short of
being a school district
superintendent.
His son is enrolled
in Virginia's equivalent
of Pine View the
Commonwealth
Governor's School, one
of six schools for high
performing students
who spend half of each
school day at a gifted
center and half at their
regular school.
His passion: being

d tfand]failed
WithjBiotek,,thei
weight ca roffrfast

Su san Sl


committed and dedi-
cated to the whole
gifted child.
As a middle-school
principal, he re-
searched a variety
of models like whole
grade accelerations,
scaffolding, and com-
pacting of curriculum,
to meet his pupils'
academic needs, while
paying close attention
to their social and
emotional needs.
"It's an important
aspect of giftedness.
Parents really need
to make sure they are
attuned to" that aspect,
Covert said.
He's proud of the
recognition granted by
Standard & Poors to
his schools. It's a sign
they're reaching out to
underachieved popula-
tions, he said.
Covert went through
an interview process in

November with six oth-
er finalists. A panel led
by Steve Cantees, ex-
ecutive director of high
schools for Sarasota
County Schools, and
Sonia Figaredo-Alberts,
executive director of
Pupil Support Services,
narrowed the field.
Following an interview
with White, Covert
emerged as the top
contender.
"Dr. Covert is an
excellent choice as the
next principal of Pine
View," Cantees said.
"It was no easy task to
find someone who will
fit that school com-
munity as well as Steve
Largo has for 25 years,
but with help from
parents, students, staff
and administrators, I
believe we've accom-
plished it."
Figaredo-Alberts
said, "Dr. Covert


truly understands
gifted education and
recognizes the impor-
tance of addressing the
various components of
giftedness: intellectual,
social and emotional."
Covert began his
career in 1993 as a
Spanish teacher at
Spotsylvania High
School. For the
Spotsylvania district,
he also served as
assistant principal
and as principal of
high schools and
middle schools, and
as director of Human
Resources and assistant
superintendent, before
being named execu-
tive director of Human
Resources in July 2012.
He was a mem-
ber of the Gifted
Advisory Board for the
Spotsylvania district.
Covert earned a
doctorate in Education


and a master's de-
gree in Education,
Administration
and Supervision
from Virginia
Commonwealth
University. He has a
bachelor's degree in
Spanish Language and
Literature / Geography
from Mary Washington
College.
Covert and his wife
Amy have two sons,
Benjamin, 9, and
Barrett, 4.
"This is a wonderful
opportunity for me
and my family," Covert
said. "I'm so impressed
with how warm and
welcoming people have
been. We look forward
to becoming a part of
this community."

Venice company helps local artists get exposure


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Could local artist Andrea
be the next international
recording sensation to
follow in the footsteps of
Scotland's Susan Boyle?
Although hardly the
music capital of the
world, Venice is the
birthplace of songwriting
and recording company,
West Gate Songs.
The company has
launched Andrea Poole's
first recorded album,
"It'll All Be Fine," into the
global limelight.
Three years ago,
Andrea Poole of North
Port and Ed Campbell III
met playing contempo-
rary Christian music at
Grace United Methodist
Church. Both were writ-
ing lyrics and decided to
put some songs to-
gether, soon to be told


by colleagues that their
work was very good.
Researching how to
release these songs to
the public, they set up
West Gate Songs and
were joined by skilled
technologist, Daniel
Ribar. Utilizing space in
Campbell's insurance
company offices, 200 S.
Nokomis Ave., Floor 4,
the partners started
the company with big
aspirations.
Traditional barriers of
entry into the music busi-
ness have disappeared,
superseded by online mu-
sic and low cost recording
technology, Campbell
said. Today, aspiring
entertainers and writers
make recordings them-
selves, create a website
and promote themselves
through Facebook and
other social media.
A major hurdle is the


Ed Campbell III is looking for
songwriters and local artists
to be considered for a global
recording contract and is seeking
local retailers wanting to stock
CDs of the new artists. Campbell
can be contacted at WestGate

album,"It'll All Be Fine,"can
be found on iTunes, Rhapsody
and at WestGateSongs.com/

the artist all in-house.
Company President
Campbell's island home
is the recording center
and Ribar, the company
principal, has developed
a large social media
presence enabling the
company to get songs
out at retail level.
Campbell and Poole


have written songs appear-
ing for the West Gate Songs
and her own website.
Their music is currently
on sale worldwide through
Amazon.com and iTunes,
the largest retailers in the
world. Their music also
can be found on Rhapsody.
Typically, today, people
want the ease of down-
loading single tracks, but
the company has pro-
duced CDs for retailers
and for direct purchase.
Poole's latest music video
featuring "It'll All Be
Fine," set in downtown
Sarasota, can be viewed
on YouTube at http://

Intentions are for
Andrea (Poole) to

Featuring skin care items, CocoNutsHut opens in mall


CocoNutsHut is
the new store opened

ucts store in this area.

Trunk Shows
"We run trunk shows

different designers," said
Linda Sieber, owner of
Needlepoint Ivy.
The store is located on
101 West Venice Ave., #1,
next to the Made In Italy
Restaurant.
Since acquiring the
business, Sieber has
introduced many variet-
ies of canvasses, ranging
from college and profes-
sional team emblems to
Christmas ornaments,
Florida shells, fish and
palm trees and New
England designs. When
customers have stitched
them in the design,
Sieber has people to
finish them.
The canvas work
inventory is expanding,
and there are more than
400 Waverley wool colors.
She gives private lessons,


has a wide range of
accessories for stitching
and offers much beading
work.
From the Albany area
and following college
graduation, Sieber was
an executive secretary in
insurance before moving
into the food service for
12 years.
While managing a
middle school cafeteria,
she operated a small
home catering service to
parties and businesses.
Two years ago, she
moved to Venice with
intentions of going into
food service but when
this opportunity arose,
she acquired the store.

Deserved Care helps residents stay at home


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Another new Venice
business is providing ser-
vices enabling residents
to remain at home and
stay out of a retirement
facility.
This service even
enables parents with kids
a chance to get a break.
Deserved Care,
launched by Daryl and
Janette Brown, prom-
ises care, respect and
compassion for all ages.
Non-medical, this home
help agency operates for
the elderly, single parents
with children and any
way they can be of
service for people in this
community.
With administrative as-
sistant Christine Dodge,
a certified nursing
assistant, they operate


from 312 East Venice Ave.
in Seaboard Office Park.
Office hours are week-
days 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and
they can be reached at
941-375-2020.
While the office is
open only eight hours a
day on weekdays, ser-
vices are provided 24/7.
Services cover the Venice,
Sarasota, North Port and
Englewood areas with
a two-hour minimum
service requirement.
Independently owned
and operated, they
pride themselves on
their commitment to
service from the very
beginning when meet-
ing prospective clients.
Sitting together, they
develop a case plan
including contacts and
relatives and note all
requirements on ac-
countability sheets.


"We are not just here
to make a living," Daryl
Brown said. "We are here
to make a difference."
Case needs are dif-
ferent so plans are built
around the client's needs.
It is offering a safety pro-
tection service, ensuring
a client is taking medica-
tion. They also will visit
for a couple of hours,
providing respite care, so
that the family member
who needs a break can
get out.
With the objective of
helping the senior gener-
ation to stay in their own
homes, Deserved Care
provides meal prepara-
tion, light housekeeping,
laundry, changing linens
and transportation.
Encouraging them to be
active, the company will
take them to the Senior
Friendship Center,


doctors, shopping and to
play bingo.
All employees, includ-
ing caregivers, have
passed the FBI level 2
background checks.
"It ensures we are
sending people into the
homes who have good
moral values, principles
and are ready to care
for somebody," Dodge
said.
Brown's military ser-
vice included four years
as a Missile Launcher
Technician, and then
he obtained a business
management degree
at the University of
Phoenix. Before launch-
ing this business, he did
spells as a lifeguard and
real estate agent.
"I like helping
people and then seeing
beneficial changes in
their lives, something

Local manufacturer announces big fourth quarter


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Following news earlier
this week of national
window manufacturer
PGT Industries hiring
additional team mem-
bers, the company has
announced improved
results for the fourth
quarter, which ended
Dec. 29, 2012.


"Thanks to a great
fourth quarter, our 2012
sales of $174.5 mil-
lion grew 4.3 percent
compared to 2011,"
said PGT's president
and chief executive
officer, Rod Hershberger.
"This improvement in
net income resulted
from increasing sales
in more profitable
categories, improving


manufacturing efficien-
cies, reducing scrap and
increasing efficiency
within our transporta-
tion team."
During the fourth
quarter, efforts were fo-
cused on driving sales by
running promotions and
capitalizing on the com-
pany's value proposition.
These activities, com-
bined with the improving


housing market, drove
net sales to $45.2 million,
an increase of $9.5 mil-
lion, or 26.6 percent last
quarter compared to
same period last year.
The Venice-based
manufacturer and sup-
plier of residential im-
pact-resistant windows
and doors highlighted
WinGuard product sales,
which grew 38.2 percent


over the prior year,
representing 71 percent
of total sales compared
to 65 percent a year ago.
Targeted promotional
activity helped drive
their mix improvement
and gain share in certain
markets. The company
also showed growth in its
non-impact and Eze-
Breeze lines, Hershberger
said.


Having transferred
all production to
Venice, PGT completed
the sale of its former
390,000-square-foot
manufacturing facil-
ity in Salisbury, N.C., in
January for approximate-
ly $8 million in cash to
an affiliate of Montreal,
Canada-based Gildan
Activewear Inc.

Nokomis vet who spurred federal inquiry on mustard gas dies


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

In 1945, Glenn Jenkins
was a 17-year-old sailor
who grew up in Nokomis
and joined the Navy near
the end of World War II.
After graduation from
boot camp in Bainbridge,
Md., he volunteered for
a secret Naval mustard
gas experiment that
made him the focal point
of a headline-grabbing
Congressional investiga-
tion in Washington on
the military's misconduct
more than half a century
later.
Jenkins died Feb. 19 at
the age of 85.
He was approximately
58 when he showed up
at the Venice Gondolier
newspaper office in 1986
and told his story about
being used as a "human
guinea pig" during
the closing days of the
Second World War.
U.S. forces were about
to invade the Japanese
home islands and it was
expected the enemy
would spray the invad-
ers with mustard gas or
something worse.
Both the Army and
the Navy were secretly
researching how to
protect invading troops
from Japanese bombs
and artillery shells
filled with the poison
gas. Eventually the
Congressional investiga-
tion proved that thou-
sands of young recruits
were given protective

rubber suits to wear,
placed in chambers and
gassed until they could
no longer stand.
It took a 4-year-
long investigation
by the Gondolier, a
"60 Minutes" lead story
reported by Mike Wallace
as well as articles in
The New York Times
and Washington Post
to uncover what had
happened to Jenkins
and thousands of others
decades earlier in the
service.
Former U.S.
Congressman Porter
Goss, R-Sanibel, led the
investigation on Capitol
Hill. He first saw Jenkins'
story in the Gondolier.
During his initial po-
litical campaign for a
congressional job in D.C.,
Goss told the old sailor
he would champion his
cause if he was elected.
Month after month,
Veterans Administration
officials in the capital
and at the state level
kept denying they knew
anything about secret gas
experiments Jenkins was
involved in during his
time in the Navy. They
maintained they had no
records that showed the
former sailor had been
exposed to toxic gas dur-
ing Naval experiments.
Without official
records, Jenkins could
not prove, to the satisfac-
tion of the VA, he had a
legitimate medical claim
for medicine or disability
pay. That's why he came


to the Gondolier and told
his 41-year-old military
secret, hoping something
positive would happen to
him if the newspaper got
involved.
After more than four
years of investigation by
the Venice biweekly and
a considerable amount
of work on the part of
other members of the
media and Goss, the case
began to crack. In 1990,
the summer American
forces first invaded Iraq,
Wallace broke a secret
investigation CBS News
had produced on Jenkins
and several other former
servicemen who were
exposed to mustard
gas experiments during
WWII.
What they discovered
was that Jenkins and
some 4,000 other Naval
recruits volunteered for
the secret gas experi-
ments, not knowing what
they were getting in-
volved in, at a Naval base
just outside Washington
in the spring of 1945. At
least 10,000 more Army
recruits were also tested
at the same time in gas
experiments elsewhere in
the country.
Jenkins told the
Gondolier he had been
burned over most of
his body during these
experiments. He had
also been warned if he
ever divulged any of this
information to anyone,
he would be arrested by
the FBI and sent to San
Quentin State Prison in


California for the rest of
his life.
By chance, Jenkins
kept a copy of a single
page of regulations given
to those sailors who took
part in the gas tests. It
said what the Nokomis
resident told the paper:
Tell no one or face life in
prison.
Before Goss and the
Congressional inves-
tigators were through
with their inquiry, they
discovered hundreds of
medical records on the
Navy's "gas guinea pigs"
still in file cabinets on
the base a few miles from
D.C. Jenkins' damning
paperwork was located
where it had been left
in the file four decades
earlier.
It showed he was
severely burned by
mustard gas over
60 percent of his body.
With this information
and similar medical files
on the few remaining


survivors, Goss was able
to convince Congress to
provide both medical
and financial support for
these old vets.
Jenkins was flown to
Washington to testify at
the hearing convened to
investigate the medical
claims of these veterans.
He returned to Venice a
vindicated survivor.
That was over two
decades ago. Until last
week, when his obituary
was published, Jenkins
rarely made the paper.
His obituary states
nothing about the part
he played as the focal
point of the Navy's secret
mustard gas experiments
- it simply notes he was
in the Navy in WWII and
was a past commander
of American Legion
Post 159 in Venice, with
burial planned at Venice
Memorial Gardens.
Jenkins is survived
by his wife of 63 years,
Laura, four children and

Jerry G. Caldwell, 69,
picked her up at another
bar and they agreed to
go to the club for more
drinks.
When they arrived, the
man started to touch her
inappropriately in the
car, she said.
She thought he was
kidding around, but
when she realized he was
serious, she told him to
stop.
When he didn't, she
pushed him away. He
grabbed her by the throat
and punched her in the
face.
She clawed at his face

and hands to keep him
off, leaving substantial
marks on the perpetra-
tor's face.
A patron just pulling
into the parking lot
rescued the victim.
He told deputies he saw
the elderly man hit her in
the face, knocking her to
the ground. The witness
separated the two.
Security surveillance
in the parking lot showed
the man exiting the
driver side of his vehicle,
then make his way to the
passenger side. The two
are then seen in a scuffle.
Video showed the
female going to the
ground a total of three
times, with Caldwell on
top of her, before the
Good Samaritan is seen
intervening.


Caldwell, who was
found inside the bar
intoxicated, gave depu-
ties changing statements
of what occurred as
additional facts were
provided by deputies.
He maintained he
was attacked and had to
defend himself. He gave
no reason why he could
not have walked away for
help even when the
victim went to the ground.
He also could not give
any reason as to why she
allegedly attacked him.
Rescue treated the vic-
tim for injuries on-scene,
but she refused transport
to the hospital.
Caldwell, 700 block Sun
Crest Drive, Nokomis,
was arrested and charged
with battery. Bond was
set at $500.

Police: Brother beats younger sister


A brother beat his
younger sister who asked
him to clean up.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
Scott William Hand,
30, was living with his
sister who
was trying
to help him
get his life
together.
When she
told him to
clean up his
HAND mess from
HAND the week-
end, Hand became angry
and began yelling at her.
She pushed her way past
him but he pushed back,
grabbed her neck and
threw her back. Her head
struck the comer of a wall,
causing a laceration.
She fought her way
out of the house, with
the defendant chasing
her, and managed to lock
herself in the van while
he attempted to throw
objects at the vehicle.
The sister then drove
herself to Sarasota
Memorial Hospital for
treatment of her injuries,
which required two inner
and five outer staples to
close her head wound.
Hand, 300 block
Redwood St., Venice, was

arrested and charged
with aggravated battery.
Bond was not available.

Daughter choked
A family member
called 911 on the mother
after the mother came at
her with a handheld saw
and choked her.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
The mother told depu-
ties on-scene she wanted
to go to jail or at least get
her offspring out of the
house because she didn't
want to be seen having a
nervous breakdown.
The two were in a
South Venice garage
arguing when the mother
began throwing clothes
at the victim. She then
picked up a handsaw,
raised it over her head
and told the child she
was going to kill her.
The child went to her
room. Later, she came
out into the kitchen and
asked the mother about
the dog who had urinat-
ed on the kitchen floor.


That's when the mother
became upset again and
grabbed the child by the
neck; 911 was called.
A family friend agreed
to care for the victim.
The mother, who lives on
Altair Road, Venice, was
charged with aggravated
assault and domestic
battery. There was no
bond.

OUR VIEW


South Venice showing right way to restore environment


In the early part of the last cen-
tury, South Venice developers dug
long, deep ditches to drain the
landscape of stormwater and make
housing tracts possible. It was typical
Florida development "style."
Some of those ditches erode. In
South Venice and throughout the
region, some are overgrown with
Brazilian pepper and other exotic
vegetation. In many places, when
governments come in with heavy-
duty mowers, the ditches are left with
layers of rotting, nitrogen-rich muck.
This stuff washes down the ditches
and pollutes larger waterways.
These problems aren't isolated to
South Venice. Far from it.
The difference is South Venice is
trying to find alternative ways to
deal with it. The South Venice Civic
Association has embarked on a major


community project aimed at making
their ditches and waterways more
attractive, more welcoming to wild-
life and less of a pollutant threat to
Alligator Creek and Lemon Bay. What
happens in the test project here could
become a model for environmental
stewardship throughout the region.
Last year, the Sarasota County
Commission awarded the association
a $313,000 grant to expand communi-
ty-based restoration work in ditches,
swales, waterways and ponds. Another
$300,000 is being sought from the
Southwest Florida Water Management
District for a variety of projects in
the neighborhood, which has 8,000
homes, 14,000 residents, 20 lakes and
ponds and 150 miles of swales.
In one reclamation, on the Datura
Waterway, the banks have been
cleared and terraced with sacks make


of natural materials. Inside the sacks
are seeds, which will sprout and cover
the slopes with natural plants.
Last Saturday morning, a crowd
of more than 40 people showed up
for a workshop at the nearby Siesta
Waterway off West Seminole Drive.
Last year, residents cleared a small
section of the waterway, pulling out
all manner of junk and cutting exotics.
Not long after, the water was running
clearer and the birds, frogs, crabs and
fish began to return.
Saturday's workshop was intended
to get public input on what types of
landscaping people would like to see
in a new test plot. As Robert Wright,
the coordinator of the county's
Neighborhood Environmental
Stewardship Team, said, "We want to
try different things to see what works
and what doesn't work."


The idea is to find passive, natural
ways to cleanse water runoff, and it
may have greater implications as local
governments deal with more stringent
water nutrient standards in years to
come. If this is successful, we might
expect to see these systems used all
along Florida's coast.
There are similar projects going on
in other communities in our area. In
the Community Redevelopment Area
of Englewood, the low-impact storm-
water project will use broad swales
lined with native vegetation to filter
runoff. The Lemon Bay Conservancy is
installing a "floating island" of aquatic
plants to remove nitrogen and phos-
phorus from a pond in the Wildlife
Preserve on Placida Road.
All are hopeful signs that green
alternatives are finally getting their
due.


This is how to


make a difference

Mental health is high on my
priority list, as most of you
know. When the opportunity
was presented to be a celebrity
waiter, I agreed to it.
Come to find out, there is
only one problem when volun-
teering for an event in which
you have no clue of what to do
- you get in a bind. I had zero
clues as to all the stuff behind
the scenes that needed to be
done to make a great waiter.
My goodness, these folks
work hard. So there I was
thinking, "What on earth am I
to do, my heart is always with
the Beacon House, but I am lost
on how to pull this off." Then
I began to smile as I realized
there was one person I could go
to for help with this dilemma.
This is the same person who
helped a new publisher gener-
ate a costume for a bed race
when he did not have a clue,
and that person is none other
than Karen Sheppard. Karen
has always been willing to help
out with any cause that helps
Venice and when needed, she
manages the projects I would
mess up in a heartbeat.
And this Celebrity Waiter
thing is one of them.
How can you help, you ask?
Aside from giving Karen moral
support, you can go to this ad-
dress www.celebritywaiter.com/
Pages/Tim.aspx and donate.
Any and all donations to this
worthy cause are most appreci-
ated. Thank you, Karen, for what
you do for Venice and for always
helping me through a jam.
Having you as a friend is a joy.
We had a party back in January
celebrating our Best of Venice
where we awarded both the
finalist and winner in almost
200 categories of business. We
had a fantastic event, and I got to


tell you that our business owners
really are a fun group, and it was
fun for us keeping them enter-
tained throughout the ceremony.
Thank you, Venice, for
making our first-ever "Best Of"
banquet a smashing success.
The public is eagerly awaiting
the results of their votes, and
we are quickly wrapping up
our annual "Best Of" finalist
and winner magazine.
This is the only publication
where we limit the advertising
only to those elite voted on
by the public. The shelf life is
year-round as people will refer
to this product for both shop-
ping and service needs.
We are getting close to the
final deadlines, and if you have
not scheduled the program
with your Gondolier advertis-
ing rep, please do so quickly.
We look forward to the whole
program again next year and
anticipate more people attend-
ing this exciting event.
Thanks to the folks who took
the time to submit ballots.
I promise you we gave your
choices a fun time and all the
recognition your vote guarantees.
Next year, we are going to have
a drawing for those who vote,
and four pairs of tickets will be
up for grabs stay tuned as we
continue to find ways to recog-
nize our local businesses.
Our newspaper continues
to be proud to be a part of this
community and have honored
relationships throughout
the market. Karen Sheppard,
her business and the Venice
Gondolier Sun is one example
of the many partnerships we
work on each day in hopes
of making local businesses
successful.
Our Best ofVenice event is a
sure sign of how our partnerships
are resonating with our subscrib-
ers. On a night in January, this all
culminated into an energy-filled
room at the Plantation Golf
and Country Club as we cel-
ebrated the partnership between
consumers, businesses and a
hometown newspaper.
My friends, that is exactly
how we make a difference.

SHOULD THE CIRCUS ARENA BE SAVED? CALL US AT 941-207-1111.


Read the numbers. Why
is gasoline up? Well, at the
end of the quarter look
at the profits that the oil
companies make, and BP is
probably paying for all of the
damages that was caused by
the oil leak in the Gulf. Just
look at the results.
No sense in saving it. I'm
leaning toward "no" that
the Circus Arena should be
restored unless someone can
prove in detail that it makes
economic sense. The build-
ing has to be able to generate
profits in the future, and I do
not see how that will hap-
pen. Someone needs to come
forward and show the rest of
us a detailed plan; otherwise,
I'm not interested in donat-
ing a dollar. The memories -
that was many years ago, but
the future is very unclear and
it just doesn't seem to make
economic sense.
Not standing for that.
Last night's performance
of "Hello, Dolly!" at Venice
Theatre was a very good per-
formance. It wasn't a great
performance, but down here
they give everybody a stand-
ing ovation no matter what
they do. The star might have
deserved it, but that was all.
It takes away from giving a
standing ovation if everyone
who opens their mouth
gets one. When are people
going to realize that stand-
ing ovations are reserved for
something really special?
Save the history. I really
feel the Circus Arena should
be saved. There's a lot of
history there and I think it
would be very beneficial
to Venice as well. I would
definitely vote, "yes, save it."
Join the effort. I'm calling
to encourage people to get
behind the Venice Circus
Arts Foundation and save the


Let 'em


Have It
Circus Arena. It is worth the
effort.
In your face. One guy
wants to play golf. Uses his
position or money, his rec-
ognition. Informs everybody
within thousands of miles
because he can. No consid-
eration for other people. It's
all about me. If you haven't
figured it out by now, Obama
plays golf in east Florida.
The skyways are shut down.
Some poor schmuck flies
and doesn't know a golfer is
around and he gets ushered
with a couple of F-16s. At
$10,000 per hour flying and
sitting times, two hours
down from D.C., usually a
four-hour round, and, of
course, beers all around
afterward, two hours fly-
ing back you price it
out. And it looks like an
in-your-face-because-I-can.
Cat people really helped. I
would like to say a big thank-
you to St. Francis Animal
Rescue. You can't believe
how much the people there


helped with a problem with a
stray cat that wandered into
our lanai severely injured.
The Cat Coalition got us into
a vet to care for it, and now
it's recuperating beautifully.
We are so fortunate to have
these very caring people
in our area. If you need to
adopt a stray cat or feral cat,
that's the place to go.
Thanks for the memories.
I agree with Bob Vedder:
Venice is no longer a circus
town. It may have been for
many years, but it is no
longer. The poor judgment
used in not rehabilitating the
railroad, eliminating needed
access, led to the circus's
departure and the arena's
demise. A structure that had
been a fine asset is now a
great liability and has been
for years. This was confirmed
by city authorities. This is no
surprise. The arena should
have been demolished years
ago. Further studies need not
be done and a "feel good"
approach totally wastes more
time and money. Please
construct a new state-of-the-
art conference facility on the
property and businesses and
tourism will be the winner,
and so will Venice. Let the
arena and the circus be a
fond memory.
Price comparison. This
is for Roger Button, the
business columnist for the
Gondolier Sun. He wrote
about New Zealand. First
of all, $1 U.S. to N.Z. $1.18
is a rather small increase? I
don't think so. What is the
percentage? It's 20 percent,
almost. Also, the gas. They
drive very small cars and get
very good gas mileage. Also,
wine. Did you have a local
wine? They're very good and

inexpensive. I would
rethink this article and
please reply.
Circus steps.
Concerning the Circus
Arts group, it's obvious
the city does not want
to do anything about it.
It seems like private in-
dividuals have a right to
renovate it. If you went
to Hollywood, Fla.,
they have a beautiful
city and don't have as
much money as Venice.
They have 10 acres, yes,
10 acres in the middle
of town where there is
a pavilion and parks.
It's worth your time
to go and see it. I was
floored. Every weekend,
there are free movies
and free concerts. What
do we have? The ga-
zebo? Come on people,
please, go to Hollywood
and see what they have
and you will not believe
it. I'm telling you. It's
fantastic. If you want
to draw young people,
jobs and interest here,
just take a trip down
there and see what can
be done.
Challenger. I think
it's great news for
Challenger that they're
going to be able to
build out there and I
look forward to com-
ing out and helping
them. It's great for our
community.
Numbers. Isn't it
funny that the Italian
American Club says
that the Car Craft Show
is going to attract
20,000 people, about
the same number as
their Italian Festival.
Isn't it funny because
that's what Bob Vedder
claims that the circus
only had 20,000 peo-
ple. I like Bob Vedder,
but he's decades and
decades behind on
what will attract and
keep business here.


Isn't it funny that that's
what he's concerned
about in his Letter to
the Editor. I find it so
petty.
Signs. I have a busi-
ness in Venice and I
can't have any small
signs or anything. I saw
a blue sign in the trunk
of someone's SUV and
I was wondering how
can the city allow such
a sign? That needs to be
looked into.
Save it. The Circus
Arena should be saved!
Please keep this historic
landmark.
Law-abiding. I love
Venice because of all
the old, law-abiding
people like me.
Too serious. I can't
believe people are so
bent out of shape over
the doggie weddings.
It's no big deal. You
need to lighten up.
Gold mine. I liked
your editorial in
Saturday's paper about
saving the arena. I don't
think people realize
what they have here. I
used to visit my mom
and dad back in the
1960s. The big event
was going to the circus
on opening night. It
seems it was a highly
social event and we re-
ally dressed for it. With
all the history here of
the circus, it would be
a gold mine. I know
what it is like to start a
museum. I did so in my
hometown in what was
the most rundown area,
but the most historical
part of our town. Today,
there are stores and
more museums and
it is the biggest tour-
ist attraction in our
town. What I would
like to know is, where
do I make a donation?
Please print so others
can also contribute.

Ho-hum. Why all the
excitement? A lot of
dogs get married every
day.
Out of control. If we
hadn't let Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
get out of our control,
it could have helped
us restore the Circus
Arena. Why did we let it
do it? It's ours. Can't we
get it back?
Also, all those people
who are wanting to
tear down the historic
arena are the people
of the present "me"
generation.
Let's not do another
dumb thing and lose
the very last reminder
of what made Venice fa-
mous in the first place.
Big business is pushing
for its demise. Don't let
them do it.
Doggone crazy. I
think the Gondolier
Sun and the Venice area
have gone dog crazy. I
like dogs, but they are
animals and for the
most part should be
treated like animals. I
think the Gondolier Sun
has taken too strong a
position in promoting
that restaurants allow
dogs at the outdoor
seating areas. I saw
the headline recently
on the front page
about a dog wedding.
Good lord. And now,
a full page devoted to
a dog funeral. I don't
understand. I think it's
nuts, and I think there's
much better stuff to be
writing about and to be
focused on.
Editor's Note: The pa-
per published a number
of comments on both
sides of the issue but
never took a position
on doggie dining.
Where to pay? If
I'm a citizen of Venice
and I'm in favor of the
Circus Arena being
restored, where should
we send our funds to?

Wacky and tacky.
What is it going to
take to get rid of the
obnoxious signs around
the city and the island?
Now we've got people
parking their car, put-
ting the hatchback up
and putting signs in the
back of the hatchback.
They're also tacky,
handwritten signs that
I'm sure are not within
the sign ordinance of
the city. I know the city
is confused as to if it
is going to give special
consideration for reli-
gious organizations or
whatever it was in front
of the house, etc. Do
we want this place to
look like a flea market?
That's what the island
of Venice is going to
look like if we keep let-
ting all this tacky stuff
fill it up. If you have
a sign, it needs to be
professional, meet the
requirements of the city
and be permitted, and
it should not be tacky. I
don't understand what's
going on with the city
or the zoning people.
Who's in charge here?
I'm just flabbergasted.
Don't take the bait.
I don't care what
improvements are
made to the North Jetty
Beach Park as long as
you leave the bait shop
alone. It's perfect right
now. Don't spoil it.
Say goodbye. Get
rid of the circus, get
rid of the Springs and
just become another
town with no historical
perspective. So sad.
The time is now. A
couple of weeks ago I
read that there was a
60-day window to fix
the roof and keep try-
ing to save the Circus
Arena. Last week I
read on the front page


that a decision will be
made on the arena at
the Tuesday, Feb. 26,
council meeting. I'm
just wondering what
happened. Seems like
someone is in a bit of
a hurry to tear down
the arena and isn't even
giving the 60 days to fix
the roof. I'm just won-
dering if there's some
sort of underlying, un-
known reason that we
don't know about. I'm
just wondering what's
going on in the back-
ground, or should I say
back room. If it's torn
down, I wonder how
fast we'll hear of some
fabulous proposal for
that parcel. Sure makes
me wonder. Right now,
I have my checkbook
out and I'm writing that
check. Hopefully, others
will be saying the same
thing and they'll get
out their checkbook
and not just say, "I'll
get around to it." We all
should do something
before it's too late.

Nokomis golfer still active into his 90s

Down at Mission

first, but this particular
golfer is 94.

JOY
FROM PAGE 1

a battle wound to show
off to their friends. The
consequences for David
would be far more dire.
It's one of the reasons
why he's wearing a
helmet at all times.
David is one of the
many physically and
mentally challenged
children who participate
in Venice's Challenger
baseball program, an
alternative option for
those whose limitations
prevent them from play-
ing for a Little League or
adult recreation team.
Challenger uses softer
balls and bats than a
typical baseball team,
minimizing the risk to
the players.
Saturday marked
the beginning of the
Challenger season,
as the North Port Fire
Department took on the
adult Challenger squad
while the firefighters'
children and Challenger
kids like David played on
an adjacent field.
Challenger partici-
pants come with varying
ability levels. David, in
fact, is one of the more
fortunate players. Others
are wheelchair-bound,
needing the assistance of
a coach just to complete
a swing, run the bases
and play defense.
David's brother
Andrew, who is a few
years older than David
and has a clean bill
of health, serves as a
"baserunning buddy,"
assisting Challenger
players in completing all
of the tasks that come
with playing the game.
Numerous commu-
nity entities includ-
ing the Venice Police
Department, the Venice
Fire Department and VHS
athletic teams volun-
teer their time helping
out at Challenger games.
Venice High Head
Baseball Coach Craig
Faulkner knows full well
the positive impact that
the Challenger program
can have on everyone
participating. Faulkner's
son, Clint, played for
Challenger, and the coach
makes it a point to keep
his players involved with
Challenger. The VHS
varsity team will play
the Challenger team
March 23 and the IV team
will do the same April 13.
Faulkner said, "Our
players always look for-
ward to the (Challenger)
kids because they are so
excited to be on the field.
They remind us how fun
it is to play the game of
baseball."
Tim Carney, David's
grandfather and a former
coach at Venice High,
said the so-called normal
kids can even learn from
Challenger players.
"With the teenag-
ers and young adults,
sometimes there's a fear
of children with disabili-
ties," Carney said.
"It's great for them to
be a mentor and buddy
out here and learn that
these kids can do a few
things. They might not
be able to compete on a
level playing field with
other kids that have all
their normal functions,
but it's great for the bud-
dies to see."
David's grandmother,
Sue Leister, said the
Challenger program is a
perfect outlet for kids like
David who aren't able to


play in a more traditional
manner.
"We've worked very
hard at not keeping him
in a bubble, and we felt
like this would be a great
opportunity, so here we
are," Leister said.
"He's doing very well
(intellectually). They told
us he might never walk
or talk. And now he's out
here running on the field."
Carney and Lori Clark
both noted that they've
seen David's confidence
improve vastly since
joining the program.
Rather than straining
the family, David's plight
has brought everyone
closer together.
Leister said, "As you
can see, we're here as a
family. It's very important
to us. We have truly
enjoyed it."
David is enjoying the
journey as much as any-
one, that smile rarely tak-
ing a break. After years of
communicating via sign
language, he gradually
learned to speak, too,
playfully responding to
my photo request with
an emphatic, "No!"
David's battle is far
from over, but if noth-
ing else the Challenger
program provides a sense
of normalcy for kids like
him who don't, and may
never, live normal lives.
"We try to keep him a
little bit sheltered," Lori
said. "This is great for
his self-esteem to get
out here and act like a
regular child."
The story of the
Mikarts carries a more
somber tone.
Kristin and Mark
Mikarts' two boys -
Zachary, 11, and Ryan,
8 both suffer from a
debilitating disease so
mysterious that it doesn't
have an official diagno-
sis. Kristin refers to it as
"The Funk." The boys
have a dearth of muscle
tone, low IQs, struggle to
speak clearly and move
around wobbly.
They're mentally
challenged, but doctors
have not been able to put
a finger on what exactly
they have.
Zachary and Ryan
attend Oak Park North,
a special needs public
school in Sarasota.
Whereas David's family


has seen improvement
and can cling to encour-
aging signs, the Mikarts
are resigned, albeit with
a positive spirit, to the
limitations that will
slow Zachary and Ryan's
development throughout
their lives.
"They definitely
struggle," Kristin said. "I
would say their mental
age is somewhere around
3 or 4 years old. They
do learn, but they learn
really slowly.
"Neither of them read
yet. They love school
and they love the idea of
reading, but the actual
concept of it they can't
do yet.
"We'll keep working
and keep pushing them
and challenging them as
long as we can. But we
also recognize that there
are just some things that
they're never going to be
able to do."
But Challenger, which
the Mikarts discovered
three years ago through
word of mouth, benefits
the boys as well as the
parents, who have found
a support group in the
form of other Challenger
parents.
"It's really great to have
the chance to talk to other
parents and socialize
with parents who get it,"
Kristin said. "Some of my
friends don't have kids
with special needs. They
don't understand the
challenges. Having other
parents that do is huge."
Raising a special needs
child is a full-time job
for parents, and rais-
ing two can wear down
even the most patient
among them. Challenger
provides Kristin and
the other parents with a
reprieve, however brief.
"We spend a lot of
time taking care of the
kids and running after
them and chasing them
and entertaining them,"
she said. "It's just nice
to have an hour a week
where somebody else is
doing that for us."
There are times, though,
when the situation gets
the best of Kristin. The
occasional "Why us?"
is understandable for
a family that thought
Ryan would lead a more
independent life than his
older brother until signs of

"The Funk" surfaced nine
months after birth.
Zachary's symptoms
were apparent earlier
on, and Ryan's affliction
delivered what would be
a crushing blow to most
households.
As strong a front as
Kristin puts on and
the honesty and cour-
age with which she
talks about her family's
situation is the epitome
of strength self-pity
seeps in occasionally.
"At times it does. At
times I'll get upset be-
cause my friends will have
kids that are doing quote
unquote "normal" things
and I'll think, 'My kids will
never drive. My kids will
never go to college. They'll
never do all that stuff.'
=e m il"1%-


"But that gets you
nowhere. It just puts
you in a bad mood and
perpetuates negativ-
ity. So I also realize that
these guys were born this
way and that they were
created with a purpose,
like all of us were."
The Mikarts' faith is
what has gotten them
this far and provides a
certain comfort with the
hand they've been dealt.
"We just know God
will use them the way
they are, and in a way,
He wouldn't be able to if
they were like everybody
else," Kristin said.
"I try to focus on the
positive, not what they
can't do."
In the meantime, the
Mikarts will continue to

look forward to Saturdays,
when Zachary and Ryan
aren't any different from
other kids who can't wait
to get on the field.
Kristin said, "They talk
about it all week. They
love to wear their base-
ball shirts. They don't
always have the best time
doing it, but at the same
time, it's important to
them. They like it, even
though they don't always
seem to express that."

Egypt's influence discussed at Elsie Quirk Library


By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD -
Moderator Ahmed
Elrefai's message was
loud and clear Monday
- "As Egypt goes, so go
the Arabs."
Visitors at the Elsie
Quirk Library were
treated to an eye-
opening discussion
Monday about how
events in Egypt and U.S.
foreign policy shape the
Middle Eastern political
landscape.
"What is going on in
Egypt is going to affect
other countries, world-
wide and the Middle
East," Elrefai told attend-
ees at the library's Great
Decisions Discussion
Group. "There is tremen-
dous misinformation
everywhere."
Elrefai, a former
Punta Gorda resident
now living in Virginia,
spoke candidly about his
experiences in Egypt and
the events surround-
ing the 2011 Egyptian
Revolution that started
Jan. 25 and resulted in


the overthrow of the
Hosni Mubarak govern-
ment. They resulted in
the expanding influ-
ence of the Muslim
Brotherhood and
turnover of government
power to the Supreme
Council of the Armed
Forces, he said.
"Egypt is under a soft
dictatorship now that the
Muslim Brotherhood has
power," he said.
Egypt's status in the
Arab world cannot be
denied, Elrefai said. It
has the largest popula-
tion (80 million in 2007),
largest military, second-
largest economy and
became a model for
political and legal insti-
tutions which have been
emulated in Kuwait,
United Arab Emirates,
Jordan, Iraq and Syria,
he said.
Visitors at the discus-
sion came prepared and
some expressed dismay
at the developments in
Egypt.
"It's terrible," said
Pat Burkey, a seasonal
Englewood resident.
"I was surprised how


things haven't changed.
All the same things
are going on. We keep
hoping for democracy
there."
Burkey said she was
surprised how much the
Muslim Brotherhood got
away with.
"I would like to trace
the money from Muslim
Brotherhood," she said.
The discussion was a
surprise for Englewood
resident Bob Shepherd.
"We're blessed to be
in Englewood," he said.
"It was a real eyeopener.
Nothing like an inside
look that you read about
or watch on TV. It's a
wonderful opportunity,
because you get a lot of
background."
Hal Johnson, a Boca
Grande resident, ap-
plauded Elrefai's con-
tribution to the Great
Decisions series. "He's
been in Egypt numer-
ous times and everyone
values his opinion,"
Johnson said. "I think
he's doing a real good
job."
Elrefai said he hopes
Secretary of State John


Kerry will bring the sides
together.
"To help Egypt and the
Middle East, talk to all
sides," he said.
The events of 9/11
inspired Elrefai to speak
about misconceptions
about Muslim culture,
particularly in the U.S.,
he said.
"There is an anti-
Muslim sentiment in the
country," he said. "One
of the main reasons why
the U.S. has interest in
the Middle East is oil and
Iran. People are chang-
ing their understanding
about why we went to
war."
Elrefai has spoken
at other area public
libraries, at Edison State
College and teaches
the Religion of Islam
at Florida Gulf Coast
University.
"People are listening,"
he said. "They're open-
minded and opinionated.
They came prepared. If
speaking is made out of
silver, silence is made out
of gold."

USF criminology students investigate mock murders


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
SOUTH VENICE -As
the college criminology
students approached the
desolate wooded area,
they saw a woman tied
to a tree. Little did they
know the bodyguard of
"the victim" was around
the corner, also dead.
Now the 27 students had
to figure out just how the
woman was strangled, tied
up and left to decompose.
Criminology students in
professor William Kemper's
class at the University of
Florida Sarasota-Manatee's
North Port campus worked
Monday in the woods dur-
ing their field trip to the
mock crime scene at State
College of Florida's South
Venice campus. Each had
to dissect the complicated
crime scenes where the
two "bodies" life-size
mannequins were
found.
Making it more com-
plex, the word "AIDS"
was spray-painted in
the grass, with an arrow
pointing to the tree where
the victim was tied. There
were several bizarre pieces
of evidence including
a Barbie doll left at the vic-
tim's feet with a letter and
white powdery substance
on it that read "Mr. and
Miss Policeman." Stapled
above the victim's head
was another letter with
potential clues.
Kemper explained that
officers wouldn't remove
the letters because they
could be contaminated
with a substance such as
anthrax.
"The scene would have
to be cleared and the
letters would be removed
by Hazmat and put in a
safebox, along with the
tongs used to pick up
the letters," he said. "If
you put the tongs in your
back pocket, that could
mean the end for you."


Kemper deferred
the rest of the scien-
tific explanation to Jane
Pfelsticker, director of
biotechnology at SCE
"Anthrax spores can
remain active in some
cases for thousands of
years," she said, add-
ing they can create a
respiratory infection with
flu-like symptoms for
several days, followed by
often fatal results.
Teams of students were
sent along the crime scene
to discover more evi-
dence. They found empty
energy drink cans, a rope
and tools. As they walked
a path out of the woods,
they discovered a knife.
Rounding the corner,
they saw the body of
a man tipped over but
still in a lounge chair.
His head rested on a
newspaper he appeared
to be reading when he


was attacked.
Students immedi-
ately examined the blood
spatter and a ball inside
of a bloody sock.
"We knew this was a
mock crime scene that
we were only going to
work on for a few hours,"
USF senior John Harrison
said. "I'm learning quite
a bit. The real work will
take place when we go
back to class to review all
of our evidence."
Harrison's crime scene
partner, Allyson Henry,
who is majoring in
psychology and minoring
in criminology, said she
enjoyed the "hands-on
experience" of a crime
scene.
"There are so many
career opportunities in
the criminology field,"
she said. "I like the
psychological element
of figuring out the crime


scene and what led up
to it."
Kemper showed stu-
dents how to prepare the
crime scene, protect and
evaluate it; collect physical
evidence; work with the
medical examiner; and
prepare a diagram and a
final survey of the scene.
At the end of the day,
some students realized
the woman was lured to
the woods by a man who
promised to pay her while
her bodyguard waited for
her. It proved not such a
good idea for the pair.
Kemper's students will
review the evidence and
share it with area middle-
school students from
the STEMsmart (science,
technology, engineer-
ing and math) program
on March 23. They will
mentor the students in
the program, explaining
blood spatter, evidence

Venice gained a circus and an arena in 1960


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice had a hand in
saving The Greatest Show
on Earth.
Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Circus
limped back to Sarasota
after just two weeks
of a four-week run in
Pittsburgh in 1956. The
mighty show was run-
ning out of money.
Downsizing began
right away as the show
began the switch from
tents to arenas. The huge
menagerie was pared.
The 100-car train was
replaced by a 15-car train
and fleet of trucks to
move the show from city
to city.
No longer need-
ing its 200-plus-acre
site in Sarasota, the
Ringling show received
an offer it could not
refuse from the city of
Venice. The deal was
orchestrated by Venice
Chamber of Commerce
president H. N. "Bud"
Wimmers who brought
the Kentucky Military
Institute to Venice in
1932. Wimmers also was
a major player in the
development of South
Venice in the 1950s. The
circus proved to be his
biggest catch.
The circus would
pay $1,000 per year for
30 years for a 15-acre
site on Venice Airport
property. A cost-of-
living increase would
occur every five years,
according to the con-
tract, which was signed
April 29, 1960. The city's
population was about
3,000 in those days and
reached 5,000 by the
mid 1960s, with much
of the growth attributed
to the circus.
With $350,000 from
the sale of the Sarasota
site, the circus had
the money to build
whatever it needed in
Venice.
To maximize floor
space for trade shows
and conventions use, a
flying buttress system
was designed by circus
train master, the late
Charles Smith. The seats
can be lifted up and out
of the way, leaving a
55,000-square-foot ex-
panse of floor. It remains
operable.
Debuting its annual
shows in the arena, The
Greatest Show on Earth
filled the arena for
multiple performances
before the big show went
on the road.
A rail line was nearly
adjacent to the property.
When the tracks could
no longer support the
weight of the train cars
and the elephants on
board some of those
cars, the circus left
town and the 4,500-seat
building became a white
elephant. Except for
high school graduations,

A flyng buttress system that allows for the seats to be raised
up to the ceiling to expose a 55,000-square-foot floor for trade
shows or other purposes is a unique aspect of the interior of the
Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus Arena in Venice.

Help paying for prescriptions is available


I just recently was diag-
nosed with a disease
that requires medica-
tion daily and I really do
not have the resources
to pay for it. Is there
any help in our city for
prescription medication?
Iam new to Florida and


to the city and decided to
write to you.
The City of North Port
has a program offered to
all Sarasota County resi-
dents that helps provide
some relief regarding
the sometimes very
high cost of prescription
drugs. The city has es-
tablished a free discount
prescription drug card
program through a
program sponsored by
the National League of
Cities.
I repeat, this discount
card is free and has no
restrictions regarding
your age, income or any


health coverage that you
already have.
These discount cards
offer city residents
savings of 20 percent
off the retail price of
commonly prescribed
drugs. There are so many
folks just like you who
find themselves in your
position, having prob-
lems economically and
just making it through
a month, when you are
faced with the additional
challenge of paying for a
new prescription.
Some facts: since
April 2009, these cards
have been used by 231


people in North Port on
352 prescriptions. The
card has saved these
folks $3,538.26. The
average price that North
Port residents received
has been $10.05 per
prescription.
Now, you are probably
thinking that you will
have difficulty finding
pharmacies that are
accepting these cards.
On that topic, you
will be amazed and
extremely happy. In
fact, in North Port, all
Publix, Walgreen's and
CVS accept these cards.
In addition, depending


upon your location,
you can also use the
card at the Medicine
Shoppe, Lemon Bay
Drugs, Town Pharmacy,
D & A Pharmacy and the
North Port Family Health
Center.
The cards are avail-
able at many locations
within the community,
including North Port
City Hall, the North
Port Library, the George
Mullen Activity Center
and the Morgan Family
Community Center.
More information
may be obtained by
calling toll free at


888-620-1749, the City
of North Port at 941-
429-7000 or online by
visiting www.caremark.
com/nlc.
I hope that you
take advantage of this
wonderful program and
it helps you and others
who read this column.
This is an amazing city
which has its residents
as the number one
priority.

Local group works to eradicate fake pot from stores


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

NORTH PORT -The
North Port Alliance
for Substance Abuse
Prevention is gearing up
for another drive to rid
local stores of synthetic
marijuana, which is often
sold as incense.
NP-ASAP worked on
the issue last summer,
conducting a retail scan to
see how many area stores
sold the incense, said
Diane Ramseyer of ASAP
"We went though area
retailers, and gave infor-
mation to those who had
the so-called fake marijua-
na and expressed concern
about the product being
part of their inventory,"
she said. "We also Google-
mapped places that were
near parks and schools;
that way we could know
how close (the retailers)
were to kids."
One was the Shell on
Toledo Blade Boulevard,
which was near a bus
stop, both Imagine
School campuses and a
church.
"There was a first effort
in terms of talking with
the manager and staff,"
Ramseyer said, adding
church members and
parents from the school
went into the store and
expressed their concerns.
"After one family mem-
ber went in, she found
the material was gone.
She made a comment


to the clerks, and they
said that the manager
had removed it because
of complaints, public
pressure and because
the staff was concerned
about the product."
Ramseyer said they
haven't conducted
any retail scans since
the summer a
Sarasota County Health
Department intern and
staff member conducted
them when they found
four other area stores
carrying the product,
but they plan to do it
again in hopes retailers
will remove the product
from their shelves. The
scans also will look for
placement of tobacco
products, advertising and
the placement of alcohol.
Mostly, they just want to
make parents aware.
"If I had walked into my
son's room and seen in-
cense there, I would have
just thought he was trying
to get rid of the smell of
smelly sneakers. I would
never have thought there
was another use to it,"
she said.
NP-ASAP partners
with North Port Drug-
Free Youth, which has
about 1,700 members,
as well as with Students
Working Against Tobacco
groups in city schools.
NP-ASAP itself has about
30 members, and meets
at 8:45 a.m. the second
Monday of each month
at the North Port Police


Department. The syn-
thetic drug committee
meets at 4:30 p.m. the
fourth Wednesday of
each month. This month,
the group will meet
at the Family Services
Center off Pan American
Boulevard to start work
on a parent and commu-
nity education plan.
"We're looking for more
people who would like
to be involved, because
we're fueled by the com-
munity," Ramseyer said.
One volunteer is Marty
Murphy, now a member
of ASAP's board who also
sits on the synthetic drug
committee.
"Part of our mission
is to make more people,
and especially parents,
aware of it," he said. "It's
out there, not only in
North Port, but all over
the country. And it's a
problem. Every time they
pass a law to stop selling
these compounds, (the
makers) simply change
the compound and they
can't be prosecuted."
He said the ultimate
goal is to urge the fed-
eral government to bring
about legislation to stop
makers of fake pot from
producing it altogether.
In the meantime, the
group will continue
working locally, he said.
"As far as the people in
the area who are still sell-
ing (the synthetic mari-
juana), our intentions
are to send in parents

North Port Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention and NP D-Fy members recently presented the
North Port Shell on Toledo Blade Boulevard with a certificate of appreciation for removing incense
and spice products from their inventory. While many such products, called K2, have been banned,
manufacturers can create similar substances that can be abused and create toxic and harmful side
effects. Reducing acceptance of and access to these "synthetic marijuana" substances is part of the
Alliance's action plan for preventing youth substance abuse in North Port. Pictured, from left, are:

If it is, then they'll say
they won't buy gas there.
Then we go in and talk 2
to them, and if they don't
remove it, we'll write
letters to their corporate
office," Murphy said.

Group reaches out to North Port's 'silent majority'


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Through word of mouth
and bringing the petition
nearly every place she
goes, Wendy Namack has
gathered hundreds of
signatures to help keep
Warm Mineral Springs in
North Port.
Namack, one of three
founders of the North
Port Advocacy Alliance
Inc., told members of the
North Port Chamber of
Commerce Government
Relations Committee
recently that she will not
stop until changes are
made regarding the City
Commission's recent
decision to sell the Warm


Mineral Springs Day Spa.
The North Port
Advocacy Alliance Inc.,
a grassroots group, was
formed by business owner
Namack, and longtime
residents Beth Mayberry
and Sue Lord. Namack also
started a "Call to Action"
electronic newsletter to
keep subscribers abreast of
ongoing issues.
"The silent majority in
North Port won't open
their mouths," Namack
said, regarding working
parents who don't have
time to attend commission
meetings but care about
the actions of commis-
sioners. "Some want to be

Suzanne Tate returns to Venice with latest book


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Suzanne Tate, author of
more than 30 children's books
about sea life, will sign copies
of her latest book, "Davy Sand
Dollar," Thursday at Venice
Stationers'
Illustrated by James Melvin,
"Davy Sand Dollar" may
prove educational to adults as
well as children for its story
about these marine animals
that many people consider a
seashell.
Instead, as readers learn, it is
colorful creature covered with
many tiny spines that it uses
to move across the sea floor
and even to dig into that floor
when threatened by larger
marine life.
Melvin, who has illustrated


all her previous books, chose a
purple palette for Davy and his
large family.
While the story has a happy-
ever-after ending, readers
also will come away with
new knowledge about sand
dollars. Tate consulted with
sand dollar expert Dr. Rich
Mooi, curator at the California
Academy of Sciences, to make
sure her facts were scientifi-
cally correct.
Venice Stationer's owner
Roseanne Brown said that
Tate's early works, "Mary
Manatee," "Tammy Turtle"
and "Perky Pelican," about
creatures found in this area,
continue to be her store's best-
selling books.
"Her stop at Venice
Stationers has been nearly an
annual event for many years,"


Brown said. "This is Number
35 of her nature series."
Crabby and Nabby who
were featured in the first
book in Tate's Nature Series
make an appearance in this
new book. Brown said that
three million copies of Tate's
Nature Series books have
been sold.
Tate's books are aimed at
young readers aged 3-10. In
addition to the nature series,
Tate has written five history
books for young children.
The signing is scheduled
from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Feb. 28,
at Venice Stationers, 211 W
Venice Ave., on the island in
downtown Venice. To reserve
copies in advance, call the
store at 941-488-6113.

With ring of water, Cirque Italia opens Friday in Venice

FEATURES EDITOR

There's a blue-and-
white tent on South Trail
just south of the intersec-

Beginning Friday,
Cirque Italia will perform
its new circus/water

that unique tent. What
would be the center ring
in most one-ring circus
tents, is surrounded by
a ring of water fountains
for this show, which
elevates the performance

people, plants and

"It's important to do
your research before
using native plants,"
said Post. First, you
identify the plant and
then learn all you can
about it. "Some plants
are safe to eat if they are
in a natural, undisturbed
area, but are known to
readily pick up con-
taminants from their
surroundings."
Common cattails
are an example of this
potential problem. They
are plentiful in Florida's
marshes, ditches, ponds
and streams. Their new
shoots can be eaten raw,
and the green flower
spike can be cooked
and eaten like corn. But
cattails absorb pollutants

Italy and Europe with his
aunt, Moira Orfei of the

A portion of the
proceeds of this pro-
duction will benefit


from the soil and
atmosphere.
The common sow
thistle is a good
salad herb, and its young
leaves and stalks are high
in vitamin C and miner-
als. It's also known to
absorb nitrogen that can
contain contaminants. So
while it's probably safe to
use if it's found in wide
open spaces, consider
what's around the plants
that may have affected
the soil or air quality,
Post warned.
Plants can vary in their
taste from one to another
and depending on the
age of the plant. Where
information indicates
that leaves can be eaten,
the younger leaves are
always more tender and
usually better tasting.
Nuts from the pignut

other times bitter.

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,

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 Vulnerable, as South, you hold:

SVoid 2 Q 1065 0 KJ963 J 854

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

A This is the type of hand that aged
players of yesteryear you have too
much to pass but not enough to bid a
new suit at the two-level. By a
process of elimination it means you
have to respond with one no trump
despite your void in partner's suit.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

6QJ9 O960 976 K9K7542

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

A If you use modern methods, you
could make a pre-emptive jump to
three clubs two clubs shows a
stronger hand; both deny a four-card
major. If not, you cannot do more
than raise to two clubs, which makes
it easier for the opponents to enter the
auction.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6 AK 10862 Y Q J10 0 Q 646K


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
1 Pass INT

What do you bid now?


EAST

A Despite your 15 points, this hand
looks more like a weak two-bid than
a one-bid. To think of doing anything
other than rebidding two spades
boggles the mind.

Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

4 A96 9 Void K 107652 A 1054


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

A Certainly you have the values for
a game force, but lack of a fourth
spade is a drawback the hand
might well make slam if you don't
run out of trumps ruffing partner's
losers. Start with two diamonds -
partner's rebid might be illuminating.

Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

* A J 8 4 V 7740 AK J 7 4 A Q 9


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 14
9
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A If you elected to bid only three
spades, you must brush up on your
bidding theory. That is invitational
only, and with a hand worth somc 20-
21 points in support of spades, you
want to be in game even if partner
has a dead minimum response. Jump
to four spades.

Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

4 K 8654 72Q0 84 AK10 65

What is your opening bid?

A There are those who "always"
open a hand containing a five-card
major with one of that suit. But look
what happens should you open one
spade and partner responds two of a
red suit. You cannot make a high
reverse of three clubs your hand
isn't strong enough so you have to
rebid two spades with that ragged
holding. Better to treat a shoddy five-
card suit as being only four cards
long and open one club.

Student spotlight shines on


Hannah McCumber


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Hannah McCumber,
15, a Venice High School
sophomore, harbors a
strong love of animals
and humanity.
She volunteers at St.
Francis Animal Rescue
and is a member of its
volunteer "E-Team"
(enrichment), earned due
to the responsible way
she carries out her duties.
She also is a 4-H Club
member and helps guide
younger children in the
organization.
"Hannah is an excel-
lent student and is
enrolled in a rigorous
university-bound
academic schedule,"
said Michele Cross, VHS
guidance counselor.
"We encourage stu-
dents to acquire com-
munity service hours
in an effort to not only
earn high school credits,
(150 hours = 1 elec-
tive credit), but most
scholarships, including
but not limited to Bright
Futures, require students
to have donated their
time to a worthy cause
in the community."

Love of animals
and people
Hannah volunteers at
St. Francis because she


loves cats, as well as other
animals.
Hannah lives in a full
household with her
mother, Raynea, stepfa-
ther Shawn O'Neill, one
older and two younger
brothers, and lots of
critters. The family pets
include two dogs, three
rabbits, two hermit crabs,
some goldfish.
"We have a stray cat we
named Biscuit who lives
on our lanai but won't
come in the house yet,"
Hannah said.
The stray started
coming around a couple
of months ago and will
get her shots through St.
Francis, which treats feral
cats. Hannah volunteers
Thursday and Sundays
at SFAR.
"I started there when I
was in the eighth grade
and volunteered three
days a week," Hannah
said. "I'm in the 10th
grade now and busier
and can't volunteer as
much."
Hannah does computer
work entering informa-
tion about the cats,
including the number
assigned to them and
a name. She also takes
photos of the cats when
they enter the shelter
and posts the pictures
on the SFAR website
StFrancisArFl.org.
"A lot of people bring


in their pets if they
lose their job or are not
able to care for them,"
Hannah said. "One
woman brought her cat
into the shelter because
she couldn't care for its
skin problems."
Hannah is a Counselor-
in-Training with 4-H
and has helped younger
children at 4-H camps,
such as Camp Cloverleaf
and Gator Adventures
Camp.
The softer side of
Hannah's volunteer job
at SFAR has her petting
cats who have behavior
problems or have a
terminal illness and will
never be adopted. St.
Francis is a no-kill facil-
ity and these troubled
cats will live out their
lives there.

Future plans
Hannah is still for-
mulating career goals.
According to her mother,
she has always loved
working with animals and
thought about being a
veterinarian.
"She is so sensitive
to their hurts, she may
not want to do that
anymore," Raynea
McCumber said. "She
has also thought about
marine biology and
photojournalism."
Hannah said she got


Hannah McCumber, 15, a
sophomore at Venice High
School, is a team leader of
the "E-Team" (Enrichment) at
St. Francis Animal Rescue in
Venice. She has volunteered
longer than any other teen
volunteer two years and
was named a leader because of
the way she responsibly carries
out her duties in taking care
of cats who require the most
attention.
a nice Canon Rebel T3
camera for Christmas
and enjoys taking
pictures.
Being a sophomore,
Hannah has some time to
further develop her inter-
ests. For now, she keeps
busy with her volunteer
activities, reading fantasy,
adventure and historical
fiction in her spare time
and shopping at malls
and in downtown Venice
shops.

Save the arts

If you live, work, play or visit Florida's Cultural Coast,
it could be that you are interested in the arts. Not only
does this area have more theaters per capital than New
York City (including the country's oldest dinner theater
- the Golden Apple) but also the 12th most valuable
art museum in the U.S. (The John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art); and, in Venice, the former home of The
Greatest Show on Earth (Venice Arena).
Money talks. These and many other nonprofit organiza-
tions need constant care and feeding in order to survive.
PLATO, the non-profit arm of the Golden Apple, will
partner with Patrick's at 1481 Main St., Sarasota on
Tuesday, March 5. Show up that evening, make a pledge
to PLATO and Patrick's owner James Sullivan will donate
10 percent of your Patrick's bill to PLATO. Enjoy a concert
while there.
To save the Venice Arena, home of the Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus and/or its Clown College from
1960-1996, buy a square foot or more of the property at
$30 per square foot. Visit:
VeniceCircusArena.com. Or, buy tickets to IllusionAria,
March 7-10,14-17 and 21-23 at 7:30 p.m. and March 9,
10, 16, 17 and 23 at 1:30 p.m. The show features Spinella,
the Tenor of Illusion, animatronic birds and the gold
statue hand balancing act from Cirque du Soleil. Tickets
are $20-$40 per person. Call 941-275-4150 or visit:
IllusionAria.ticketleap.com.
To help Venice Theatre reach its goal of offering some
of the best community theater in the U.S., call
941-488-1115 or visit: venicestage.com.

Nobu honored at South Beach
Wine and Food Festival
By SUZETTE LABOY
His name is drawn on the napkins and chopsticks at
his more than 30 restaurants around the world, but chef
and restaurateur Nobuyuki "Nobu"Matsuhisa prefers to
stay out of the limelight.
"Normally I am the chef. Today is a tie and suit and I
feel bad:' he told The Associated Press, referring to his
preference of being in the kitchen than in front of a large
audience fora tribute dinner.
Nobu, as he prefers to be called, was honored
Saturday at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival
for his fusion cuisine that blends Japanese and South
American ingredients.
Life has been busy and quite successful- forthe
Japanese-born chef who started cooking at the age of
18. He opened his first restaurant Matsuhisa in Beverly
Hills in 1987 and today has 31 restaurants in more than
two dozen cities around the world, from the Bahamas
to Beijing. Nobu Tribeca was named "The Best New
Restaurant" by The James Beard Foundation in 1995.
His latest venture extends into the hotel industry with
the recently opened Nobu Hotel Restaurant and Lounge
Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, said to be the largest Nobu
restaurant to date. Nobu partnered with actor Robert
DeNiro on the project, as he has done since 1994 with
other restaurants.
"Before I met him, I had restaurants with other
partners but never success:'Nobu said. "But with Bob,
he respects me. He understands my work. We drink and
talk with each other. We also fight, but this communica-
tion makes fora nice partnership.:'
Nobu takes pride in seeing his customers smile at his
restaurants. Orthe 85-year-old man who visited his Las
Vegas spot and sent Nobu a thank-you card. He says that
is what makes him want to keep cooking.


Celebrate Florida

in March
This month marks 500 years since Ponce de Leon
landed in Florida, and Punta Gorda is ready to celebrate.
This weekend the Florida 500 Festival will take place
at Laishley Park, and while the Royal Order of Ponce
Conquistadors may be making an appearance, they too,
have a celebration planned at the end of the month. This
is the month to celebrate how thankful we are to live in
such a beautiful state.
March is also time to celebrate the Irish. Of course we
will fill you in on all the St. Patrick's Day festivities when
the time comes, but Cape Coral is starting early with
their 9th Annual Irish Festival this weekend. The festival
will include two days of live music, freshly prepared food,
beer and family fun. The festival will be held at Bavarian
Gardens rented from the German American Social Club,
2101 W. Pine Island Road (west of Chiquita), in Cape
Coral.
Also, you may want to take advantage of the nice
weather we've had lately and take a boat cruise. Last
week we featured Boca Boats out of Boca Grande that
offers many great trips including a sunset cruise. This
week Kim Cool tells all about her trip aboard the Good
Times II, part of the King Fisher Fleet out of Fishermen's
Village. Get out on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and enjoy
a sunset or scout out some dolphins and other marine
life.
In my opinion, this is the best time of year in Florida,
so take advantage of anything there is to do outdoors.

GO DINING OUT


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


The shores of Wildwood, New Jersey are
quite a long way from the Suncoast town of
North Port, but Laura Van Vlack can now say
she's owned restaurants in both places.
Like so many current residents of this area
do, Van Vlack eventually made the choice
to make her vacation spot her permanent
home. Then, she decided to bring her work
with her, too. Just a few weeks ago, she
opened her newest restaurant, Smack
Daddy's, in North Port's Shoppes of Price
Crossing.
"We're a family-style restaurant,"she said.
"We serve 'comfort food, and everything is
homemade and made from scratch."
She's serving breakfast, lunch and dinner,
and on the menu are southern staples like
biscuits and gravy, pulled pork, shrimp and
grits and barbecue ribs.
So how is it that someone who grew up
in Michigan and owned a restaurant in the
northeast knows so much about southern
cooking? Well, as it turns out, she spent


quite a bit of time learning in
the kitchens of her North Caro-
lina relatives. The result is some
very tasty "down home" cooking.
"The'Thanksgiving dinner'is like literally
sitting down to a Thanksgiving meal;'she
said. "The crab cakes are amazing-we
use blue lump crabmeat and blue crab claw
meat. We mix the two together and use
very little filling."
Whether it's appetizers, soups, salads,
burgers, sandwiches or wraps, you can be
assured that whatever you order at Smack
Daddy's has been carefully made right then
and there.
"Everything that we buy is quality,"Van
Vlacksaid."It makes a difference in how the
food tastes."
From the homemade sausage gravy
atop the breakfast biscuits to the USDA
Angus beef hand-pattied into half-pound
burgers, Van Vlack says she takes her time
to make sure every aspect of every order is
perfect-right down to her Lil'Smackers
Kids Menu.

On Venice's U.S. 41 bypass, in the Brickyard
Plaza, stands a Mexican restaurant that delivers
traditional Mexican food and atmosphere that
create a true dining experience.
The Venice location is owned by partners
Michelle Buice, Unity Award-winner Hugo
Nunez, and Bonifacio Caro as part of three Mi
Pueblo restaurants, with the other two located
in Sarasota. The Venice location, which offers
extras like courtyard seating and banquet
facilities, draws many people who have never
experienced Mexican dining before. "We see
a lot of people who are new to Mexican food,"
explained Luz Contreras, general manager of the
Venice Mi Pueblo, adding, "The servers are very
knowledgeable about the food here. They're
very helpful."
Even with a wide array of choices for
everyone, favorite foods include enchiladas
stuffed with chicken breast, cheese, or beef
and rolled in a corn tortilla, which can then be
combined in a platter of tamales, tacos or other
choices. Fajitas are another popular menu item
offering a choice of steak, chicken, shrimp or
vegetables, adding the special sauces and sides
that make an authentic Mexican meal. "Other
Mexican restaurants fry their food. Our food is
grilled," noted Contreras, of Mi Pueblo's menu.
While the food is the star of the restaurant,
visitors to Mi Pueblo are in for an experience.


Wednesday nights from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
the restaurant features a Mariachi band that
wanders from table to table playing music
while you eat. The band is much like the wait
staff financially."We pay them a small salary,"
explained Contreras. "People can tip them if they
wish, but they don't have to. It's up to them."
At the Venice location there is a private
banquet room accommodating up to 50 diners,
perfect for birthday parties, wedding rehearsal
dinners, and other group gatherings. If a party
isn't convenient on the premises, Mi Pueblo can
come to other locations through their catering
program.
The restaurant offers outside courtyard
seating, which is also pet friendly, one of the
few restaurants in Venice that offers pet-friendly
dining. The business offers family entertainment
on Friday and Saturday nights with balloon char-
acter art, face painting, magic and more for the
kids at the tables. It adds up to a very popular
attraction. "If you can, come at 5 p.m. or after
8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays to avoid the
crowds," pointed out Contreras, who has been
with Mi Pueblo for 10 years. The restaurant is
open for lunch weekdays from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m. and from noon to 3 p.m. on weekends.
The restaurant reopens for dinner at 5 p.m.,
closing at 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursdays and
10 p.m. Friday and Saturdays. The Mi Pueblo El
Restaurant Mexicano and Cantina is located at
530 US 41 ByPass South, in the Brickyard Plaza,
Venice. For more information call 941-486-0005
orvisit www.mipueblomexican.com.

Cirque Italia, with its sleek blue-and-
white tent and fountain-enhanced center
ring returns to Venice next month.
Since its debut last year as a fundraiser
for Venice Circus Arts, Cirque Italia has
built a new show which it debuted in
December at Tampa's Museum of Science
and Industry MOSI. As it was in the debut
show, the hand-balancing act of
Duo A & A (Anton Makuhin and Adam
Vazquez) surrounded by the mesmerizing
fountains will again be featured.
Among the new acts for this year's
show are Dmytruk, the Mask juggler
from Russia; aerialist Nicolette Fornesari
who has appeared wit Circus Sarasota;
Vladimir & Nicolette who are known as
The Cube Duo; and Coco the clown.
Always featured in this unique 1,266-
seat 50-foot tall tent is water 35,000
gallons of it in a doughnut-shaped
pool that surrounds the center ring and
becomes part of the show at intervals
during the performance.
The tent derived from the dream of
circus owner Manuel Rebecchi, who grew
up in Italy where he traveled Italy and
Europe with his aunt, Moira Orfei of the
Circus Moira Orfei. His uncle, Massimil-
iano Nones, is the recipient of the Golden
Clown Award in 1987, the top prize
awarded by Prince Rainier of Monaco at
the Monte Carlo Circus Festival, an annual


event that is compared by some to the
Academy Awards.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit
the Italian-American Club of Venice and
the Venice Arts and Library Foundation
Inc.
The Venice run of Cirque Italia opens
March 1 in the blue and white tent at
2372 South Tamiami Trail 34293, south of
the intersection of U.S. 41 and S.R. 776.
The circus will play through March 17, with
evening performances at 7 p.m.
March 1-3, 6-9 and 13-15; at 3 p.m.
March 2, 9 and 16 and at 2 p.m. and

"Leprechauns, castles, good luck and
laughter. Poems and songs with pipes
and drums. A thousand welcomes when
anyone comes...That's the Irish for you!"
- An Irish saying
Whether you're Irish or not, wear a
bit o'green and kick off the month of
March at the 9th Annual Cape Coral Irish
Festival.
The festival consists of two days of
continuous live music, freshly prepared
food including corned beef and cabbage,
"a drop of the creature" (Irish for beer),
and family fun.


Delight in the sounds of Andy Cooney
(of the New York Tenors) and his band,
the spirited Screaming Orphans, Kathy
and Andreas Durkin, lan Barksdale's
Wolfhounds, Brian Bonner, Harry Boyle
and West of Galway.
You will get a kick out of the award-
winning Kellyn Celtic Art Dance Academy
and Tir na Nog Academy of Irish Dance,
and revel in the sounds of the Lee County
Pipes and Drums' musicians wearing the
MacLachlan tartan in memory of their
Pipe Major founder, Duncan MacLachlan.
New this year are expanded children's
activities, and they're still free!
Calling all pixies and elves ages 3
to 13 and find the action in the large


"Leprechaun Lane"tent fanciful face
painting by the Cape Coral Shrine Club
whose charities are supported by the
Festival. Also, mischievous clowns playing
Leprechaun-like tricks, creating balloon
animals and juggling and age-appro-
priate crafts projects with beads and
other artsy materials. Plus, outside the
tent, bean bag toss and basketball hoop
dunk games will be available, so bring
the kids.
Test your"luck of the Irish" like the Irish
miners who found their"pot o'gold" in
the gold fields of California in the mid-
1800s. Take a chance on winning a trip
for two to Ireland. A value of $2,500 with
airfare, bed and breakfast and rental car


for a week in a location and at a time of
your choice!
Admission is free for children 12 and
under, $6 for adults and $3 for students

nesses.

FEATURES EDITOR
No matter how many times one has
been to Boca Grande, arriving by boat
makes it a totally new experience.
A friend and I sailed out of Punta
Gorda on a recent Friday aboard the
Good Times II, a double-decker day
cruise ship owned by King Fisher Fleet.
After the usual safety spiel delivered
on boats, we left the dock, sailed out
into the harbor and soon learned that
we would not be alone on this cruise.
Off the port side, several bottlenose
dolphins popped up to the surface,
dove beneath the water and then back
up. Seated topside, I saw several other
dolphins ahead of us.
Drinks and snacks are offered early
into the cruise and delivered right to
one's seat. A lady in the same row as
my friend and I ordered a hot chocolate
which came with a spoon for the moun-
tain of whipped cream.
We were sailing south in Charlotte
Harbor which, according to the captain,
is a north-south body of water and the
second largest harbor in Florida.
Guilivo said we would sail 25 nautical
miles, finally sailing due west through
Pine Island and Gasparilla sounds to
Gasparilla Island, home to the city of
Boca Grande.
Boca Grande is the self-proclaimed
Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World.
May 23 and 24, the waters in Boca
Grande Pass will be teeming with
anglers there for the "World's Richest
Tarpon Tournament, followed on May
25 by the Gasparilla Kids Classic Tourna-
ment. That weekend it might be better
to drive to Boca Grande. Viewing should
be good from the old lighthouse if
you can find a parking space nearby and

a spot of sand on which to set up camp.
On the day of our cruise, we saw no
tarpon but plenty of dolphins, birds, sail-
boats of every size and, at Boca Grande,
one extra large multi-million dollar
yacht docked next to the public dock and
behind its owner's million-dollar home.
We learned a lot about the marine
history of the area, especially phosphate
shipping and the shipping of fish from
there to all corners from what was called
the "ice dock:'."
Originally known as the Peas River by
the Calusa Indians, today's Peace River
gained its present name from Spanish
settlers who referred to it on their maps
as the "Rio de la Paz" or "Peace" River.
We arrived about 11:30 a.m. and were
told to be back on board no later than
2:30 p.m. unless we wouldn't mind being
left behind.
Armed with a map of Boca Grande, a
discount coupon for the Loose Caboose
Restaurant at the old depot at Boca
Grande plus other sightseeing informa-
tion, we headed out to see the town,
arriving at the Loose Caboose just before
noon for lunch. We continued strolling
after lunch and paused for a bit of
window shopping before heading back
to the Good Times II in plenty of time for
a 2:30 p.m. departure.
The boat was gone, a cabin cruiser
in its place. Not to worry, by 2:15 p.m.,
the boat sailed in and pulled up beside
the dock for the return trip. Back on
board, we enjoyed more tales and great
breezes.
King Fisher offers several different
cruises plus boat charters, sailing lessons
and more. The day cruise is $27.95 per
person for adults and half price for
children 3-11. Choose from half-day,
full-day and sunset cruises. My next trip
will be the half-day Peace River Nature
Cruise. It is offered on Wednesdays
during February and Saturdays during
the month of March.

Suzanne Tate, author of more than 30
children's books about sea life, will sign
copies of her latest book, "Davy Sand
Dollar,"Thursday at Venice Stationers.
Illustrated by James Melvin, "Davy
Sand Dollar" may prove educational to
adults as well as children for its story
about these marine animals that many
people consider a seashell.
Instead, as readers learn, it is colorful
creature covered with many tiny spines
which it uses to move across the sea
floor and even to dig into that floor
when threatened by larger marine life.

Melvin, who has illustrated all her
previous books, chose a purple palette
for Davy and his large family.
While the story has a happy-ever-after
ending, readers also will come away
with new knowledge about sand dollars.
Tate consulted with sand dollar expert
Dr. Rich Mooi, curator at the California
Academy of Sciences, to make sure her
facts were scientifically correct.
Venice Stationer's owner Roseanne
Brown said that Tate's early works, "Mary
Manatee," "Tammy Turtle" and "Perky
Pelican" about creatures found in this
area, continue to be her store's best-
selling books.
"Her stop at Venice Stationers has
been nearly an annual event for many


Bek


years," Brown said. "This is Number 35 of
her nature series."
Crabby and Nabby who were featured
in the first book in Tate's nature series
make an appearance in this new book.
Brown said that 3 million copies of Tate's
nature series books have been sold.
Tate's books are aimed at young
readers aged 3-10. In addition to the
nature series, Tate has written five
history books for young children.
The signing is scheduled from 2 p.m.
to 4 p.m., Feb. 28, at Venice Stationers,
211 W. Venice Ave., on the island in
downtown Venice. To reserve copies in
advance, call the store at 941-488-6113.

American Made Band

records first CD at promotional party


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

When Kevin Gosset formed "American
Made Band"almost two years ago, he was
thrilled that he had found four talented
musicians and vocalists who shared his love
for high-energy classic rock music. The band
hoped to perform two or three gigs a month.
But its fan base grew rapidly, and soon the
band was booked at local venues every
weekend.
The band was recently surprised and
ecstatic when Jim Jones, technical director of
the Charlotte County Cultural CenterTheater,
offered the theater for the band's promo-
tional party to record its first CD. It will be
held at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 28 at the theater,
2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte. The event is
free to the public, so come to the party and
have a fun evening with the one of the best
high-energy rock bands in Southwest Florida.
The barwill be open, and a 50/50 split will
be held and proceeds donated to the Conquis-
tadors for its Ponce de Leon 500th celebration
at the end of the month. Gosset met Jones
when he joined the Conquistadors.
Richie Jasinski of DB Sound Systems in
Punta Gorda is volunteering his services
with the sound board. Other volunteers
include technicians, theater employees, and
bartenders.
"We were speechless when Jim told us we
should record. We never dreamed we would
be so popular,";Gosset said."We're a down-to-
earth, small fish in a big pond group, so we're
very grateful for the support from so many
great people."
Four of the five-member band sing
harmony to a wide variety of classic rock
songs. Fans enjoy hits from bands such as
Journey, Boston, The Who, REO Speedwagon,
and songs by the Beatles, Tom Petty, Bob
Seger, and many more famous artists.
Gosset, lead vocalist, sang with a successful
band in the Detroit area for many years. He
and his wife, Donna, moved to Punta Gorda in


2005. Gosset owns Dependable Drywall, Inc.
John Howes, bass guitarist and vocalist, has
played in this area for 25 years. "Kevin is the
best vocalist I've ever worked with. He has a
vocal range that has to be heard to appreciate
his outstanding talent," Howes said.
Featured on the band's CD will be two
original songs that rock the house. Howes
wrote and produced "American Made." The
first few lines are "Turn up the lights, crank
the band up loud, it's Friday night, let's kick
the show off right"'Indeed, the song depicts
the band's passion to perform for people who
enjoy dancing, partying, and having a rockin'
good time. Keyboard player and vocalist, Jim
Owen, adds a wide range and dimension to
the band, and he wrote and produced the
song,"Nasty Reputation."
Don Hough, lead guitar and vocalist, and
drummer Dennis Clune are talented, aggres-
sive and well-versed in high-energy classic
rock.
"When we're on stage, we look at each
other in amazement. It's an awesome feeling
to see people enjoy what we do as much as
we enjoy performing,"Gosset said."It's the
greatest gift in the world."
Among the many venues where the band
performs are the Elks Club, Sidebar, and
Dean's South of the Border in Punta Gorda,
and Joe Cracker's in Port Charlotte.
In orderto help other local bands to achieve
success, the band has recently opened a demo
recording studio, West Coast Productions, 215
Wood St., in Punta Gorda. Call 941-639-4440
to reserve a time slot fora recording.
The band is looking forward to opening for
the"Mummies Band"at the Funkfest in Punta
Gorda on March 9. Also, the band will perform
for the second year at the Punta Gorda Block
Party on April 20.
Go to AmericanMadeClassicRock on Face-
book for the band's schedule, photos, videos
and regular updates. The band is available for
private parties and other events.

Road Trip
Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a terrific place of music memo-
rabilia. But there are many other lesser known American places to be found. The Delta
Museum in Ferriday, Louisiana, is a tribute to Jerry Lewis, Aaron Neville and others
while the Delta Blues Museum is in Muddy Waters' hometown of Clarksville, Mississippi.
Texas offers the Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock and the tiny Orbison Museum (as in Roy)
in the town of Wink. The Georgia Music Hall of Fame is in Macon, the city where Little
Richard, James Brown, Otis Redding and the Allman Brother started their careers.
Head north to Detroit and discover the Motown Museum in the original brick
building where the Motown sound and its legendary artists originated in the early'60s.
In the Pacific Northwest, Seattle's Experience Music Project contains the original Wood-
stock guitar of hometown legend Jimi Hendrix. In the southwest, Albuquerque houses
John Lennon's Rolls Royce and Elvis Presley's Mercedes Benz, among other vehicles at
Yesterday's Auto Museum. And in California, L.A.'s Morrison Hotel Gallery has a compre-
hensive rock who's who photo exhibition while a collection of rock artist handprints
can be found on Hollywood's RockWalk. Or, for a more commercial, but still authentic
experience, you can always scan the walls of your nearest Hard Rock Cafe.


Last week, this musical trivia question was asked: Who is the'70s-'80s female pop
singer who had 5 number one hits, 28 songs in the top 40 and starred in 3 films?
Answer: Answer: Olivia Newton John. Plenty of good answers (Cher, Bette Midler,
Diana Ross) but first to get it right was
Dave Bakula of Venice.
This Week's Question: Who is the rock band that had the 1975 hit album "Toys in the
Attic"featuring the song "Walk This Way," later covered by rapper Run DMC?
Ifyou think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than
noon this Friday, and we'll publish your name as the winner with the correct answer
in next week's issue of Let's Go! Please include your name and city.

Opening lead: Eight of C

The language of the defense is in
signals but the enemy could have
your line tapped.
The bidding was straightforward
enough. Rather than attempt an 11-I
trick contract at five clubs, South
tried three no trump and everyone
was happy with the contract.
West led a heart his partner's
suit. East followed with the king to
the first trick, which was allowed to


hold, as was his continuation with the
ten. To the third round of the suit East
led the two, strengthening the
suggestion that the lowest of the
remaining suits was where the
defender's entry lay.
However, South was also aware of
what was going on. With only five
fast tricks available, one of the
minors would have to be developed
for the extra four tricks, and both
offered the chance for that. There was
no room for error if East could
gain the lead, the contract was
doomed.
East was known as a pillar of the
community, so declarer had ample
reason to believe that defender's
signals. If that were so, then a pure
guess became a sure thing unless,
of course, East held both the king of
clubs and ace of diamonds
Spurning the finesse, declarer
immediately went for forcing out the
ace of diamonds. West won and
shifted to a club, but declarer rose
with the ace and cashed out nine
tricks three spades, one heart, four
diamonds and one club.

r BMELISSA! THEVE a rAS BEEN HELPN'ING w o

DEAR DR. ROACH: As a
person with COPD, would
I get any benefit from tak-
ing an 81-mg aspirin on a
daily basis? Thank you for
your interest. -P T.
ANSWER: Aspirin is a
serious medication that
shouldn't be taken on a
regular basis lightly. It
has good effects and bad,
and for any given person,
aspirin overall can be
beneficial or harmful.
Aspirin reduces the risk
of heart attack in men and
stroke in women, and re-
cent studies seem to show
a reduction in cancer,
especially stomach and
colon cancers, by about
15 percent. However, it
increases the risk of bleed-
ing, which can be serious.
But in general, the higher
your risk of heart disease
and stroke, the more ben-
eficial aspirin is. The U.S.
Preventive Services Task
Force, the advisory board
for preventive services,
has recommended aspirin
for most men over 45 and
most women over 55.
Although aspirin has no
direct effect on COPD that
I know of, because the vast
majority of people with
COPD have significant
tobacco exposure, their
risk for both heart disease
and stroke is higher than
average, so aspirin prob-
ably would be of more
benefit to prevent these
problems.
Always talk to your
doctor before starting
daily aspirin. People with a
history of serious bleed-
ing certainly shouldn't
be on aspirin without
specific instruction from
their doctor.
The booklet on COPD
explains both emphysema
and chronic bronchitis,
the two elements of
COPD, in detail. Readers
can obtain a copy by
writing: Dr. Roach No.

FL 32853-6475. Enclose

DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am a type 2 diabetic and
am suffering from severe
eczema. The itching is
driving me crazy, and
I can't take it anymore.
I can't use creams with
steroids, as they raise my
sugar to over 400. D.H.
ANSWER: Eczema can
indeed be quite serious.
Although steroid creams
often are the first-line
treatment, they are by no
means the only treatment
available. Ultraviolet light
can be of some benefit.
ooo


Dr. Roach
Readers may
write Dr
Roach at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475

Immunosuppressants
and immunomodulators
also can be very effective,
because they reduce the
body's reaction. However,
all of these treatments
have the potential for side
effects as well. A derma-
tologist with experience
in eczema should be able
to talk to you about all of
your options.
I am a bit surprised that
steroid creams have such
a powerful effect on your
blood sugar. Most people
don't have such a strong
reaction. It's certainly
worth a discussion with
your endocrinologist (or
whomever is managing
your diabetes), as I worry
that your blood sugar may
be high after eating as
well.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I am
a 76-year-old woman and
take no medications. For
the past several months,
I hear my pulse near my
ear when I lay on my side.
It can be very annoying.
What is the cause of this?
- R.E.
ANSWER: Hearing
your pulse in your ear
can be the result of a
benign condition, such as
wax buildup. It also may
occur in people when the
Eustachian tube (it con-
nects your middle ear with
the back of your throat)
gets blocked and the
middle ear fills with fluid.
However, the most serious
concern is an enlarged
blood vessel (aneurism)
inside the skull near the
ear. See your doctor or
an ENT specialist, who
can examine you for wax
buildup or fluid behind
the eardrum.
In rare cases, you may
be recommended a scan
to look at the blood vessels
in your head.

he is unable to answer

Cutting-board concerns


Dear Readers: Everyone
has a cutting board or two
in the kitchen, and some
are in pretty bad shape!
Here are recommenda-
tions from the United
States Department of
Agriculture regarding cut-
ting boards to help keep
food safe:
Nonporous cutting
boards made of plastic,
glass or recycled materials
are easier to clean than
wooden boards.
Keep at least two cut-
ting boards: one for cutting
only fruits and vegetables,
the other for meats.
After use, wash cutting
boards with hot, soapy wa-
ter, rinse and air-dry or dry
with paper towels. (Heloise
here: Don't use a dish towel,
because it can spread bac-
teria.) Nonporous and solid-
wood cutting boards can be
washed in the dishwasher.
(Heloise here: Although the
USDA states that a wooden
cutting board can be put in
a dishwasher, I hand-wash
mine.)
Over time, all cutting
boards wear down and
need to be replaced. A
sure sign that they need
replacing is deep grooves
that become difficult to
properly clean. Heloise

Egg separator
Dear Heloise: I finally
found a way to separate
my egg whites from the
yolks: I just break them
into a small colander! The
egg whites easily drop out
of the colander, leaving
the yolks behind. Sara
B., via email


Hints from Heloise

After testing this hint in
Heloise Central, it works,
but it takes some time for
the whites to get through
the colander. What we did
was use a slotted spoon
to move the egg around
a little, then just used the
spoon to easily remove
the yolk from the whites.
- Heloise

Pie spices
Dear Heloise: Please tell
me what is in the apple-
pie spice. I cannot find it
in the markets. Janet
K., via email
Apple-pie spice
typically is a blend of
cinnamon, nutmeg and
allspice that gives an
apple pie its distinct
flavor. It should be avail-
able at the grocery store,
since it is produced by
major spice manufactur-
ers. However, if you can't
locate it, the spice is
available online.
You can add this spice
blend to pies, cakes and
cookies, or even coffee
and French toast. There
also is a pumpkin-pie
spice available, which
is the same blend.

Man's online porn addiction


robs marriage
DEAR ABBY: I need
help and I can't talk to
anyone I know, so I'm
pouring my heart out
to you. My husband is
addicted to online porn.
Our sex life has suffered
massively because of it.
He seems uninterested
in sex with me. I had a
feeling that it might be
something or someone
else.
My woman's intuition
told me there had to be
a reason for him turning
to porn, so I checked our
computer's history log
and found he has been
surfing gay porn. He does
watch straight porn, but
now peppers it with male-
on-male porn as well.
It has shattered my
world. I don't know what
to think or what to do. I
can't discuss this with my
family. They would never
view him in the same
way again. Help! J. IN
BRIGHTON, ENGLAND
DEAR J.: Your husband
may be curious, bisexual
or have discovered (late)
that he is gay. It happens.
You need to have a frank
conversation with him.
Remain calm, stay strong
and remember that you,
too, are entitled to a sex
life. You have nothing to
lose by discussing this,
and everything to gain.
If you need more help
afterward, consider going
online and contacting the
Straight Spouse Network
at www.straightspouse.
org.
DEAR ABBY: I have
been in therapy for four
years. I like my therapist,
who has helped me
immensely. However,
over the past year she has
become increasingly tardy
in keeping her appoint-
ment times.
I understand there are
sometimes emergencies,
but being a half-hour late
every week is excessive. I
feel it is disrespectful to
me. She keeps saying I
just don't understand.
How can I get across
to her how frustrated
I am? Or do I need to
find a new therapist?
- BY THE CLOCK IN
CONNECTICUT
DEAR BY THE CLOCK:
Tell your therapist exactly
how this is affecting you
and ask what her problem


Dear Abby

is. She owes you an
explanation.
I agree that being late
for your appointment is
disrespectful if it happens
regularly. You may need
to find another therapist.
If that's the case, be sure
to tell her why you are
leaving. It takes courage
to be assertive, but it will
help you in your personal
growth.
DEAR ABBY: Please
help me with a delicate
situation between me
and my husband of seven
years.
For our 20th anniver-
sary, my first husband
gave me a diamond
anniversary ring. After
running across it again,
I have recently started
wearing it.
My husband is very of-
fended that I have chosen
to do this. I wear it on
the middle finger of my
left hand. (The knuckle
on my right hand was
broken when I was a teen
and it won't fit on that
hand.)
I have tried explain-
ing that there is no
sentimental reason for
wearing the ring. It's just a
beautiful piece of jewelry.
He doesn't want me to
wear it at all, but I do. Do
you have any advice? -
LIKES THE SPARKLE IN
WISCONSIN
DEAR LIKES THE
SPARKLE: While the ring
may be just a beautiful
piece of jewelry to you, to
your husband it may sym-
bolize the 20-plus years
you spent with someone
else. Ask if he would mind
if you had the stones in
the ring remounted into
something you could
wear on your right hand
- or consider selling
it and using the money
to buy another piece of
jewelry that would be
less threatening to your
current spouse.


"l am a stranger in the earth..." -Psalms 119:19.
Its that status that keeps us looking up. Don't be
bound to the earth, be Heaven bound. Jesus said, "I go
to prepare a place for you."

PEANUTS By Charles Schulz


Batiuk & Chuck Ayers


SHOE By MacNelly Productions


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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19).You feel wonderful
about yourself when you make others feel good
about themselves. It's a talent for sure, and one
that requires an astute mind and a high level of
attention.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Think about how you
could help your clients and customers succeed.
Your success depends on the positive difference you
make in the lives of others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).There's a limit to what
can be accomplished through thinking. At some
oon


point, you have to test the theory. In today's case,
the outcome will be surprising.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Are you on a quest, or
just in a dramatic mood? Beware: Questing can be
a habit instead of a bona fide activity. You may find
out that you already have what you seek.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In some way, you'll pour out
stale feelings to make way for warm, loving ones.
It's similar to the way you must empty your cup of
the old coffee before you can accept a new brew.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll overlook the pec-


and dearest commit such offenses, you feel it's your
responsibility to acknowledge it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As your planets cook up
a financial snafu, you might see it as a math quiz of
sorts. And if you have the right attitude, this leads
you to a better relationship with money.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You do not deem it
necessary that everyone obey you. But you cannot
be an effective leader unless your team follows you
at least some of the time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Right away you


meet, and you forge fast bonds. Ironically, you're
unconcerned about whether or not they like you,
and they genuinely like you because of this.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Life will give you
reasons to get physical. Your hard work in this regard
will payoff first in a short-term exercise high and
later as a general contribution to your good health.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Someone who once
caused you stress will no longer be a bother to
you.This person has moved on, and so will you. A
smooth transaction this afternoon will be the first


cadilloes of certain friends, but when your nearest notice something to like in the new people you sign of progress.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll prove that the
face of effective work is not always stern and seri-
ous. Sometimes it's no sweat.Through your chuckles
and levity, you'll accomplish a significant feat.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 27). You have a burning
desire and a clear right choice. Because you know
what yo=u must do, the consequences suddenly
become inconsequential. Your work for the good
of all won't be glorified, but it will be rewarded
in deeply profound ways. Band together in April.
Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky
numbers are: 18, 2,33,39 and 50.
