f LOCAL NEWS COVER TO COVER FLORIDA'S NO.1 WEEKLY NEWSPAPER






It happened near Tampa. Could it happen here?


By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER

News of a natural disaster
always prompts the thought,
"Can it happen here?" In the
case of sinkholes, the answer is
yes, but it's not likely.
A sinkhole in Seffner, near
Tampa, claimed the life of Jeff
Bush Thursday night. Then,
Monday afternoon, another
sinkhole opened up just a few
miles away; officials believe it's
not connected to the earlier one.
But they are related in the
sense that Hillsborough County
is an area of high sinkhole
incidence: The underground
limestone layer that permeates
Florida is closer to the surface


WHEN HAS IT HAPPENED?
For a listof all occurrences of sinkholes in Sarasota and Alachua counties since 1980, see


page 14A.

there than it is in other parts of
the state, including here.
"The geology is different
in Venice than in the Tampa
area," said Harley Means, as-
sistant state geologist with the
Florida Geological Survey.
Sinkholes form when that
limestone layer is eroded over
time by rainwater, which is
slightly acidic. Holes form,
making sinkholes when the
roof collapses. The deeper the
limestone, the less likely it is
to fall victim to erosion, and
the less likely it is that holes


that do form in it will affect the
surface, he said.
When they do, though, they
can be significant.
"Warm Mineral Springs and
Little Salt Spring those
areas were probably originally
sinkholes," Means said.
This area has an additional
safety feature, according to Means.
"You guys are actually
protected by some nice, thick
clay layers that sit on top of the
limestone," he said.

TAMPA 114


AIH nH ul
Demolition experts watch as the home of Jeff Bush, is destroyed Sunday,
after a sinkhole opened up underneath it late Thursday evening swallowing
Bush, 37, in Seffner. The 20-foot-wide opening of the sinkhole was almost
covered by the house, and rescuers said there were no signs of life since the
hole opened Thursday night.



Knife saves sailor


from death

Boat capsizes off Venice Beach


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
A sailor in the WaterTribe
Everglade Challenge, a 300-mile
unsupported expedition race
from Tampa Bay to Key Largo, is
safe after almost going down off
Venice Beach with his boat.
A knife may have saved his life.
Joe Frohock, who goes by the
tribal name "Puma," was res-
cued off Venice beach Saturday
afternoon after U.S. Coast
Guard Search & Rescue and
the Venice Police Department
marine officers were scrambled
out of the Venice Inlet.
Frohock was sailing a 19-foot
Beach Catamaran in 5- to


7-foot seas in the race that
began Saturday, when his GPS
tracking showed others that his
boat had stopped moving for
more than an hour.
The Coast Guard raced to the
scene and pulled Frohock out
of the water. His boat sank.
The Coast Guard reportedly
deployed a C130 surveillance
aircraft, a helicopter and a
cutter. Frohock was brought in
to a Venice marina where he
was picked up safe and sound
by a family member, reported
tribe member PaddleDancer on
WaterTribe.org. (Members of
the race all have Tribal names.)

CORRECTION: The Venice Gondolier Sun listed the wrong charge when
publishing that Travis Garbrandt was arrested. He was taken in by police for a violation
of probation. The GondolierSun published otherwise and regrets the error.


The fate of the circus arena


Official: Save arena, build new bri


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
With the city's 60-day clock
ticking to abate safety con-
cerns within the old Circus
Arena or demolish it, at least
one Council Member thinks
the city should foot the bill.
In an email sent to City
Manager Ed Lavallee, Council
Member Jim Bennett said he
not only sees potential for the
arena but also believes "it is a
primary responsibility of the
city to abate the code viola-
tions, since the arena is, and is
on, city property.
"It should be relatively
easy to show that the cost of
near term abatement is less
than the cost of demolition,"
Bennett said.
The city gave the Circus
Arts Foundation five years to
rehabilitate the facility, but two
years into the project the city
zoning department declared
it an unsafe building and gave
the organization 60 days to


Venice City Council member Jim
Bennett has suggested that the city
should move forward with saving
the arena and possibly even build a
new bridge at one point in planning
long-term for Venice's future.

or demolish it.
Estimates have ranged from
$175,000 to $500,000 for a
complete demolition.

member to admit the city is

PHOTOS BY
JUSTIN FENNELL

The crowd-pleasing Budweiser
Clydesdales visited Venice
this past Saturday and were
greeted by thousands of
onlookers throughout the
downtown area. Children and
adults alike got an up-close
look of these giant, iconic
horses. There even was a bit
of fun as beads were thrown
to the crowd, some of which
were thrown by Venice police
officers. The Budweiser team
consisted of eight horses,
two carriage drivers, one
Dalmatian named Brewer and
several horse handlers.

while providing the

of venues to promote
one of Sarasota County's
most treasured historic
attractions.
"With nine public
libraries situated across
the county, the Library

match to provide ven-
ues for the Ringling
Museum's outreach ef-
forts in cultural program-
ming and education,"
said Sarabeth Kalajian,
director of the Sarasota
County Library System.
"We began focusing on

couple of years ago, and
we are thrilled to collab-
orate with the Ringling

Elli's Vintage Rentals finds new uses for old material


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Two housewives have
created a one-of-a-kind
business, probably the
only one in Florida,
seizing an opportunity to
rent out vintage furniture
and accessories.
Flavia Pariano and
Erin Tackett co-own Elli's
Vintage Rentals operat-
ing from Warehouse 11 at
779 U.S. 41 Bypass South
in Gulf Coast Plaza at the
rear of Robbie's Reef.
They serve industry
professionals and are
only available by ap-
pointment for those
working with a photog-
rapher, venue manager,
event planner, caterer
or cake designer. For the
future, their plans are
to supply theaters and
movie makers.
Pariano admitted she
has always loved antiques
and purchases items
whenever she sees them. It
came to a point where she
had too many in her home


and in her garage and was
looking to do something
with the pieces. She sug-
gested to Tackett they open
this business.
"Initially, I could not
vision it or see how it
worked, so I researched
and contacted other
companies around the
country," Tackett said.
Continuing to col-
lect more items, they
filled their three home
garages and had to rent a
warehouse.
The business was
launched with a party to
seek ideas from us-
ers. The feedback was
amazing, and they found
people were looking for
something romantic and
distinct for their event.
They took bookings for
church pews and period
benches that people
wanted in order to have
a very clean look at their
wedding. Photographers,
wanting a very nice
image, chose pews to
provide a stunning look
for outside weddings.


The steamer trunk
and suitcase series were
also very popular with
photographers, and
Tackett wants some day
to see them at the Venice
Train Depot. Elli's has
outdoor chandeliers with
LED lights not requiring
electricity.
Vintage couches look
great under a tree or in
an empty space. Since
the launch, Tackett said,
everything seems to be
getting attention, includ-
ing assorted seating,
tables and display items
used for altar tables, a lot
of accent pieces, cribs,
hutches and old china.
More valuable items
include a 200-year-old
sewing machine, a
110-year-old piano with
ivory keys, typewriters
over 200 years old and
a walnut vanity with a
mirror from the 1800's.
Liking what the company
is doing, some people
have donated cherished
items, wanting to see
them in use over and

over again, not sitting in
a home or garage.
"Anything needing
fixing, we do ourselves,
including making items
appear vintage," Tackett
said. "We are in our
infancy and are open


to expanding, probably
renting items to theaters
and movie productions."
The business will
not replace the normal
rentals for a venue, but
the accent, character and
punch of Elli's inventory


will give a warm feeling,
texture and age to an
event. Their coverage
area stretches from St.
Petersburg to Naples,
and Elli's has a $500
minimum for delivery
and $150 pick-up fee.


Eden moves to larger salon & spa with parking


Projected to open
before the end of this
month in their custom,
totally renovated new
location is Eden Salon
& Spa at 328 South
Tamiami Trail across

"We are staying on
the island and will have
plenty of parking for our
customers," said Rosanne
Dooley, the co-owner
with her husband Jim.
Their team is moving to
the larger location, where
they have nine stations
and provide cutting, styl-
ing, perming, coloring,
highlighting, smoothing
treatments, formal styles
and up do's for women,
men and children.
With three manicure
and pedicure stations,
they offer natural nail


services and shellac
polish, spa and petite
pedicures for men and
women. Additionally
they have four treatment
rooms for hair removal
and waxing, facials and
massage.
They are open

Structure soon to be renamed KMI Bridge


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
The renaming of
Hatchett Creek Bascule
Bridge on the north side
of the island is expected
to be approved soon.
Referenced in Senate Bill
300, submitted by state
Sen. Nancy Detert, the
new title, KMI Bridge, is
named for the Kentucky
Military Institute.
Larry Humes, a
Kentucky Military Institute
Alumni from the Class of
1965, and Patrick Keigher
of CocoNutsHut in the
Venice Centre Mall, who
spearheaded the name
change, are expecting the
name decision approval in
the next few weeks and to
be effective July 1.
Coinciding with the


3-day, bi-annual reunion
of Institute graduates
and alumni taking place
inVenice, there will be
a dedication ceremony
held on Saturday, April 19.
Humes and Keigher are or-
ganizing this special public
event starting at 10 a.m. in
the Michael Biehl Park at
Tampa Avenue West by the
bridge.
"We are expecting a
good turnout of support
from graduates and
alumni attending their
reunion," Keigher said.
Several graduates of KMI
living in Venice are among
the 273 living in Florida.
Venice Center Mall is
staging an open house
with displays of Kentucky
Military Institute memo-
rabilia, including uniforms
and photographs hanging


on the walls. With the
expansion of the Triangle
Inn as a historic center,
additional KMI historic
items will be on display.
Enthusiasts Humes and
Keigher petitioned for a
name change to the Venice
City Council in a resolu-
tion that was unanimously
supported at the Council's
November meeting.
Officially, the complete
title will be KMI BRIDGE,
with 'Kentucky Military
Institute' in smaller print.
Two brown signs with
yellow letters, one in each
direction, will be erected
by Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT).
"This organization saved
the cityin the early 1900s
and had a major impact
on the growth ofVenice for
over 40 years," Keigher said.

Youfit offers gym without



gym-like experience


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
A new concept in fitness
health clubs is growing
across the nation, and
founder Rick Berks has
chosenVenice for his new-
est location.
What makes Youfit the
fastest growing healthy
option is that a member
simply pays monthly.
There are no salespeople,
and a member does not
exercise along with heavy
metal body builders or
singles looking for dates.
The new location, 1168
Jacaranda Boulevard at
Center Road adjoining
Sweetbay in the Venice
Pines Plaza, encompasses
14,000 square feet and
is scheduled to open the
end of this month.
Leasing agent Terry
Purdy of Merritt Realty
Corporation arranged the
transition of units and
rebuild with contractors
West Central Design, Build
& Real Estate Services.
With 48 Youfit gyms es-
tablished, more are under
construction in Atlanta,
south California, and
Miami Dade. The opening
of the Venice facility will be
followed within a month
by locations in North Port
and Winter Park.
Purpose built with
floors of recycled, ground-
down sneakers and tires,
the store features 50
pieces of cardio equip-
ment, including treadmills
and bicycles, together
with another 50 strength-
resistance machines.
"We focus on top-of-the-
line high-tech equipment
with each cardio machine
having an iPad hook-up
and an individual flat
screen television to watch
and listen to what moti-
vates you," Berks said.
Ian Burley manages the
staff, individual trainers
and all staff who are expe-
rienced on the equipment.
His success is giving
value for money with the
main focus being spot-
less facilities, equipment
and offering only two
basic memberships, a no-
contract $10 monthly and
a $199.99 line card with
additional benefits.

Youfit Health Club founder Rick Berks poses for a photo at the
opening of his most recent gym.


Berks grew up in
Florida, served as a deputy
sheriff for five years, then
went into the family
agricultural business. He
enjoyed strength training
in the gym but in this
friend's gym, everything
was constantly broken.
Deciding he could do
better in 1991, he opened
Gold's Gym. It was a suc-
cess, so 10 years later, he
sold the trademark and
brand to Planet Fitness.
A fitness person, he saw a
need for a gym that was not
so gym-like and not geared
to a body builder. With
his new concept in 2008,
he opened his first Youfit


health club in St. Petersburg.
'A colorful, clean,
environmentally friendly
health club, gym, fitness
center where you fit in,
founded on the principle
of simplicity, where the
average person who wants
to get into shape can walk
in and feel comfortable,"
he said. "It is ideal for
seniors, too, stimulating the
muscles to function better
and improving the quality
of life."
Youfit is open weekdays,
5 a.m. to midnight,
weekends 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sign-ups accepted on the
premises, $1 till opening.

Venice Auction Company goes

King Solomon's Treasures
is no more. Although some
signs remain, big changes
internally have been made
in the past three weeks by
Joe Laraviere, owner of The
Venice Auction Company,
which acquired the
property.
The new title is Venice
Auction Company & Retail
Outlet, located at 1250
U.S. 41 Bypass South.
"We are going to have the
largest new and pre-owned
furniture outlet in Venice
and the largest auction
gallery in a three- to five-
county area," Laraviere said.
"We will just keep expand-
ing as we have the space."
With more than 40,000
square feet, he has
sectioned the interior.
At the entrance is a very
large selection of wicker
and leather, quality, new
and like new, Florida-style
furnishings for the whole
home, including floral,
lighting, accents and
accessories.
To the rear is the much
larger auction area with
increased seating and a vast
display of 700 items being
auctioned from 5 p.m. on
Thursday. Additional large
auctions will be scheduled

for Saturday evenings.
Also moving into the
building will be Detwiler's
Farm Market, a very popu-
lar business in Sarasota
for more than 12 years.
"We are putting in fresh
bulk local foods, fresh
meats and seafood," Caleb
Detwiler said. "There will
be a deli, ice cream and a
bakery. Our goal is to be
here and set completely up
in the next month or two."
Laraviere is open seven
days from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
and till 10 p.m. on auction
days. Detwiler's Produce and
Deli will be open six days.
Coming to the large fore-
court probably in 60 days
will be periodic pumpkin


festivals and old car shows
featuring his own 2004
Lamborghini and 2005
Dutch-made Spyker.
He has a lease purchase
on the property from
owner David Grolman, who
launched King Solomon's
Treasures Consignment
Market approximately
four years ago. Grolman
acquired the property in
August of 2003 for $1.5 mil-
lion from Scotty's.
Built in 1974, the
47,200-square-foot build-
ing stands on a 3.5-acre
property, which in 2002 was
Scotty's Home Builders, a
lumber yard and building
supply store until the com-
pany closed the location.

SITTING ON YOUR WALLET
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR


While the current state of the economy gives
many people good reason to keep their wallets
in their back pockets, this money-saving
strategy may still take a toll on the "bottom
line." The fact is that, since the 1970s,
chiropractors and other healthcare
practitioners have identified a syndrome
known as "wallet sciatica." As thick wallets in
back pants' pockets press on the sciatic nerve,
they produce a sharp pain in the buttock that
can radiate down the leg on that side.


Unfortunately, the rear pockets in pants are
located close to the sciatica nerve's most
vulnerable areas. Fortunately, this wallet-
related problem can be easily averted by
relocating the wallet to another pocket or
using a money clip.
P.S. Sitting on a fat wallet can also raise one
hip and throw the spine out of alignment,
which can potentially lead to back (and other)
pain.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


This is how your insurance covers you for sinkholes


Michael
Carlson


Following the terrible
sinkhole collapse and
the tragic loss of life in
Seffner, Florida, there was
some confusion over whether
the sinkhole loss would be
covered under the family's ho-
meowners insurance policy.
I would like to shed some
light on that.
First and foremost, our
thoughts and prayers are with
the Bush family during this
time of terrible grief. We can-
not begin to imagine the pain
they are experiencing, and
we hope they are able to find


some peace as time passes
from this horrible tragedy.
The Bush home is clearly
covered under Florida Statute
because it was destroyed by
what is termed "catastrophic
ground cover collapse."
Catastrophic ground cover
collapse means geological
activity that results in all of the
following: 1) The abrupt col-
lapse of the ground cover; 2) A
depression in the ground cover
clearly visible to the naked eye;
3) Structural damage to the
covered building, including the
foundation; and 4) The insured
structure being condemned
and ordered to be vacated
by the governmental agency
authorized by law to issue such
an order for that structure.
The situation surrounding the
Seffner residence clearly meets
this definition, and all Florida
homeowners policies carry the
same protection against cata-
strophic ground cover collapse.
Therefore, the family will
be able to have its additional


living expenses paid for as
they try to recover and find a
new home, and they also will
receive a check equal to the
full limits of the policy.
Floridians can also purchase
optional sinkhole coverage
that will pay to repair damage
caused by earth shifting or
movement that is shown to be
caused by sinkhole activity.
If a home is damaged by
suspected sinkhole activity
but does not meet the criteria
for catastrophic ground cover
collapse, then the homeown-
ers insurance policy may not
pay for possible damage if
the policy does not include
optional sinkhole coverage.
For instance, if a crack is dis-
covered in the foundation but
the home is still livable, then
the insurance policy may not
pay without a sinkhole rider.
Floridians are strongly en-
couraged to discuss this issue
with their insurance agent to
determine if optional sinkhole
coverage is something they


Demolition experts watch as the home of Jeff Bush, 37, is destroyed
Sunday, after a sinkhole opened up underneath it late Thursday evening
swallowing Bush, 37, in Seffner. The 20-foot-wide opening of the sinkhole
was almost covered by the house, and rescuers said there were no signs of
life since the hole opened Thursday night.


would like to include in their
policy. Premiums for optional
sinkhole coverage vary de-
pending on the prevalence of
sinkhole activity in the territory
where the residence is located.


Michael W Carlson is
the executive director of
the Personal Insurance
Federation of Florida. More

This class will


make a difference


I saw an email this morning
that brought back a lot of fond
memories and reminded me
of new friends, new ways of
looking at things and a new
outlook for a better tomorrow.
It reminded me of weekly
meetings I shared with 24
other outstanding individuals
in a classroom setting where we
shared many thought provoking
ideas. We learned to negotiate
the diversity of issues and how
to disagree with one another
without destroying relationships.
One thing that stood out in
my mind is that nationwide,
community issues are not that
different. In most cases, the
difference is the people who
handle the issues.
The email I refer to is from
the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation seeking applicants
for the next class of 25 for
the Gulf Coast Leadership
Institute. This program ranks
up there as high as the STEM
initiative in my mind on the
list of important community
projects
So now it is up to us to
recommend the people we
feel will take what is taught by
the J.W Fanning Institute for
Leadership Development back
with them into their roles as
leaders in the business com-
munity and beyond.
I promise you that these
people will be a little more
focused, a little more under-
standing and a lot more willing
to make a difference when they
graduate. I happen to know
this because I saw an email


about the same time last year,
attended and graduated the
class and am a better human
being because of it.
Visit GulfCoastCForg to
download the application if you
are serious about a life-changing
event. Or do it if one of your
employees wants you to recom-
mend them for this challenge.
Do so because it only
benefits us all.
Switching subject, the Circus
Arena issue is heating up, and
I got to thinking that during
this 36 Hour Giving Challenge
somehow, someway, it will drive
a positive chain reaction that
sweeps our market and saves
that precious piece of heritage.
I understand all sides of
the issue too well, but my gut
instinct keeps telling me there is
a golden egg there and this land-
mark will yet again prove to be
of valuable economic service to
Venice, just as it was years ago.
Look beyond today and it
becomes clearer that this Arena
must be saved. Vision and deter-
mination is called for today.
On another note, the Venice
Gondolier Sun is partnering
with the Venice Arts Center
to welcome the Sarasota Film
Festival back for its 15th year.
We are planning a Venice Party
at the Arts Center on March 20
where the Film Festival will
give us a rundown of the
activities and make announce-
ments for the first time.
Our first year turnout was
over capacity, and we will need
tighter control this year. I am
thinking you should give Mary
Morris, the Venice Arts Center
director, a call and reserve your
space now as I got a feeling we
will fill up faster than we did
last year.
A big thank you goes out to
Mary Morris and her staff for
their tireless efforts and for
working with us to forge a new
partnership.
You just got to love it when
things come together now,
don't you?

THOSE AGAINST THE INCREASE
WORRY THAT THE POOR WILL FORGET

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Here are my suggestions
for Rep. Darrell

Editor:
A recent letter from
Congressman Darrell discussed
his re-election, for which he was
beginning to raise funds. I decided
it was a perfect opening to give him
a few suggestions, shown below.
I'm sure I will receive re-
marks from it, but that's fine.
1. Block all funds to Obama
unless cleared by the House -
except his salary.
2. Charge a fee for Air Force
One, per mile, except House-
approved emergencies.

GondolierSun should not
have printed hot dog photos

Editor:
I think it is really disgusting
when there are so many people in
the area, all over really, suffering
from malnutrition, are hungry
and even starving and you post
a picture on your front page of
people pigging out seeing how
many hot dogs they can eat, one
person even struggling to keep
the ones he's eaten down.
Any idea how many people
who are hungry could have been
fed with those hot dogs? Why
are contests like this held when


down the street food is being
collected for the homeless?

Yoga on the Beach is a
public treasure

Editor:
Recently, my husband and
I retired, purchased a house
in Venice and moved here full
time. Other than living near my
snowbird sister and brother-in-
law, the single reason why we
located to Venice is Elin Larsen's
Yoga on the Beach classes.
If you have ever wondered
why Elin has so many devotees,
consider the following: her
classes offer the company and
camaraderie of others, it affords
our bodies the opportunity to
produce Vitamin D as we safely
soak up the sun and enjoy the
Venice beach, and it helps us to
increase our range of motion,
strengthen our bodies and main-
tain our balance and flexibility.
Bringing guests to Elin's yoga
classes tops the list of activities
we offer visitors to our charming
town. Based on conversations with
other yoga participants, we find
that many are tourists attracted to
Venice for the same reasons.
At most studios offering
yoga, the charge per session is
$10 or $15. Elin runs Yoga on
the Beach on a donation basis
and most participants donate
$1 per session. Many benefit
from Elin's classes because it
is run on a donation basis and
therefore affordable to all.
Yoga on the Beach is a valu-
able asset to the community of
Venice, and Elin Larsen should
be acknowledged for the posi-
tive impact she has on both
the health of our seniors and in
enticing tourists to return.

Bring home troops, tax
dollars

Editor:
As I read the Tribune this


morning, Monday, March 4, I
just wanted to scream, "WHY?"
The headline of the article on
page 5A said," U.S funds being
sent to Egypt." Are we Crazy as
a nation?
Borrow money from the
Chinese, raise taxes on every-
one, ask our citizens to tighten
their belts, yet again only to
take $250 million out of our
budget and give it to a country
that hates us and is in total
disarray and broken.
Maybe if we kept our noses
out of other countries affairs
and minded our P's & Q's, we
wouldn't be so hated around
the world. Secretary of State
John Kerry said after a meeting
with Mohammed Morsi and
his Muslim Brotherhood, "The
aid reflects Egypt's extreme
needs."
What about the extreme
needs of the people in this
country that pay the taxes to
our government only to have
them given away trying to buy
friends? Here is a clue. They
hate us, they will always hate
us as long as we keep butting
into their affairs.
Bring all our troops home
and all the money. Let these
countries fight it out. These
are century-old battles from
the beginning of time. We will
never solve them with troops or
money.
Secretary of State John Kerry
said, "Moving ahead with
difficult economic changes
was implicitly a promise of
some political change." So for
$250 million we get a promise
of some change.
Personally, I feel the
Secretary has been stand-
ing too close to some of the
poppy fields in the area and
is out of his mind for believ-
ing we will make any kind
of change in that region of
the world. Bring home the
Secretary, the troops and our
tax dollars now.
We can spend the money
here where it will do more and
make a real difference.

SHOULD THE CITY ITSELF BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SAVING THE CIRCUS ARENA?


Whose welfare? The follow-
ing 11 states now have more
people on welfare than they do
employed: Hawaii, California,
New Mexico, Mississippi,
Alabama, South Carolina, Illinois
(the president's home state),
Kentucky, Ohio, New York and
Maine. If you're not sure, Google
it yourself.
Editor's Note: We did. It's false.
Visit politifact.com.
Blank check. I read the article
in the Gondolier Sun about the
Circus Arena and the engineers.
I've heard of that engineering
firm. They've done a lot of
high-rise and construction out of
Sarasota. I think we should listen
to the engineer. The engineer
knows what he's talking about.
He points out that it may not
be economically feasible. You
start trying to save this build-
ing and you probably need to
have a blank check to pay for
everything. I think it's time to
just take some pictures of it to
remember what it used to look
like, tear it down and build a
place where our kids can go and
adults and have a nice place for
our community.
Deterioration. I'm calling to
appreciate the weekend edition
of the opinion page asking who
will step up and save the arena.
The citizens of Venice and the
Venice area need to save this
wonderful building. There are
things that are so good about this
building, and yet it was allowed
to deteriorate by city council or
people who didn't care about
the gem that they had in this
wonderful building. It's time to


Let 'em


Have It
do what is right for the future of
Venice and South Florida. Save
the arena.
Dog carts. I'd like to know what
the law is about having dogs in
businesses that have food. We
go to Walmart and I find there
are dogs in the carts where I put
my groceries. I don't think that's
kosher because there are food
products. Besides service dogs,
what is the law about having dogs
where there is food?
No guns? I never heard of a
gun electrocuting someone. In
fact, I've never heard of a gun
being on trial with a jury. How
in the world will us old people
ever be able to protect ourselves
without a gun?
Continuing coverage? The new
editor at the Venice Gondolier Sun


recently gave a huge amount of
space to doggie marriages, and
now he has chosen to give a full
page in glorious living color to
a doggie funeral. Yes, a doggie
funeral, with balloons, cotton
candy, clowns, circus acts, a
doggie hearse, a doggie casket,
pictures of people crying and
people having fun in the old
New Orleans tradition. Reading
the article indicates that the dog
actually died in November 2011
-repeat, 2011, about 15 months
ago. No indication was given
about where the dog was placed.
It certainly was good publicity for
the new doggie cemetery. Further,
no indication was given in the ar-
ticle as to whether the Gondolier
Sun will provide continuing
coverage on doggie funerals of
note in the future.
Impossible. We've known
all there is to know what the
contract engineer disclosed this
week about the Venice Circus
Arena. We've known it for at
least the past six years. It was
impossible to restore it then,
and it is impossible to restore
it now. Rebuild it, yes, if you
have enough money. Fact: We
don't. Get real. Tear it down
now and be done with it! No
more arguments with the FAA;
no more arguments with the
citizens. Face it, folks, you can't
fix it. What I don't understand
is all the nostalgia for a falling-
down building and none about
the Kentucky Military Institute,
which is the real operation that
saved Venice, not the circus. As
a matter of fact, few remember
where it was and there is nothing


where it was to commemorate
it no plaque, no nothing. As a
taxpayer in Venice for 37 years, I
say tear it down, folks.
Dress code. It still irks me to
see people go into the theater
dressed worse than when I go
play golf. It would kill you to put
on a shirt and pants?
Tragedy. What a great article in
the Gondolier Sun regarding the
Ringling Brothers and Barnum &
Bailey Circus presence in Venice.
What a tragedy to our commu-
nity that we did not save one sec-
tion of train track, one railroad
car or any historic piece of this
time in Venice. What a treat it
would be to go to the present
historic railroad station and see
remnants of this circus era. Yes,
I understand it takes money, but
we are able at this present time
to contribute money to save
the Lord-Higel House. Can we
not try and save some historic
vestige of a great time in Venice?
Do we have to go up to Ringling
Museum when Venice could
have its own examples of its own
part in history? It's a shame that
we tear down and destroy our
heritage so easily.
Remain seated. The Venice
Symphony is fantastic. My
husband and I, along with two
other couples, have season
tickets and thoroughly enjoy it.
We also have season tickets to
the Sarasota Opera and Florida
Studio Theatre. I am absolutely
appalled at the lack of courtesy
that the patrons who attend
the Venice Symphony display.
They are really rude. At every
performance I have attended


they begin to get up and leave
while the symphony is still
performing. Do they really have
some place that important to go?
Several times people have gotten
up and left when there were still
two pieces to be performed. For
those of us who thoroughly enjoy
the performance, it is distracting
and takes away from the beauty
of the music. The musicians are
excellent and should be given
their due credit, along with the
conductor, with applause and
standing ovations. My advice is,
if you don't want to stay for the
whole performance, don't come
at all. You would never see the
opera patrons get up and leave.
It just isn't done.
Puzzled. I'm calling about the
Circus Arena building, but I'm
wondering if what I think about
it will even matter. It seems
a decision has been made to
demolish it and open the doors
to developers. I'd like to know
why the time frame was changed
from five years to 60 days, and
who are the developers who are
pushing for demolition? We all
know that the arena is sitting on
five acres of prime property, and
all of a sudden it is not safe for
the public? What public? If any-
one enters a construction site,
whether it's a new construction
or a rehab, I guess that public is
trespassing. The other question I
have is why was the work on the
building stopped? In conclusion,
to say that it is heartbreaking to
tear it down and sit back and
not offer any support to save the
arena, is puzzling to me. Just how
heartbreaking is it?

HIGH SCHOOL VARSITY BASEBALL



Albert, Hammond combine for 4th straight shutout


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The wins and zeroes
- continue to pile up for
the Venice High baseball
team.
The Indians recorded
their fourth consecutive
shutout Tuesday night,
manufacturing enough
offense to pull out a 3-0
win over Braden River
and complete a season
sweep of the Pirates.
Tyson Albert and
Cooper Hammond com-
bined on the shutout, as
Albert scattered four hits
and three walks over 4 1/3
innings before giving way
to Hammond, who threw
2 23 of one-hit ball.
The Pirates appeared
poised to take the lead
with the game dead-
locked at zero and run-
ners on the corners with
one out in the top of the
fifth. Venice Head Coach
Craig Faulkner called on
his trusted closer to get
the Indians out of the
inning unscathed.
Hammond did just that,
striking out Braden River's
No. 3 and 4 hitters -
Dylan Lee and Myles Straw
- to keep the game tied.
"I try to look at it the
same," Hammond said of
entering games in less-
than-ideal circumstances.
"You've just got to make

your pitches. You can't let
them even get a ball in
the air in that situation,
because they'll just tag
up."
Braden River Head
Coach Mike Verrill,
who after losing to the
Indians Feb. 19 predicted
his Pirates would leave
Venice with a victory,
seemed flummoxed by
his team's continued
struggles against
Hammond.


"We hit him around last
year," Verrill said. "He's
decent, he's not overpow-
ering or anything. He hits
good spots and he held us
this game. Maybe in the
playoffs."
The Indians finally got
on the board in the bot-
tom of the fifth.
Danny Raynor started
a two-out rally by getting
plunked by Pirates starter
Norton Brooks, who
allowed three unearned


runs in 5 % innings of
work.
Raynor stole second
and Dalton Guthrie's
line-drive comebacker
deflected off Brooks'
glove and trickled toward
second baseman Justin
Phillips, who let the ball
squirt under his glove and
into right field, allowing
Raynor to score.
Venice added two
insurance runs in the
sixth, first on Colton


Lightner's RBI single that
scored Langston Provitt
and again on a balk by
Brooks.
Verrill disagreed with
the umpire's balk call.
"They said (Brooks) has
to be facing the batter
(when in the stretch),"
Verrill said. "If you can
figure that one out for
me, send me an email."
Albert did just enough
to keep the Pirates off the
scoreboard, repeatedly


HIGH SCHOOL VARSITY SOFTBALL



Eight-run fifth dooms Indians in 11-1 loss


By NATE COWAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT

This season the Venice
Indians softball team
has struggled to produce
runs. Against the Sarasota
Sailors, the Indians
produced more of the
same while the Sailors
scored eight runs in the
fifth inning en route to
an 11-1 victory. The game
was called in the sixth
inning due to the 10-run
mercy rule.
"They just beat us bad
tonight," Indians Head
Coach Larry Sandburg
said. "They were just a
better team."
Venice had runners
reach in the first two
innings, but wasn't able
to put any runs on the
board. In the first, Taylor
Baker walked but was


stranded. With one out
in the second inning
Delaney Frazier doubled
and Rachel Lightner
walked, but Sailors
pitcher Clarissa Lynch
struck out the next two
hitters to end the threat.
Coming off a strong
performance Friday
against Charlotte,
Sandburg elected to start
Megan Quinn against the
Sailors. Quinn got the
Sailors in order in the
first two innings before
they broke through with a
run each in the third and
fourth innings.
Quinn hit Alyssa Price
with a pitch and after
two sacrifice bunts and
a walk, Price scored on
a single by Jami Aguayo.
With one out in the fourth
Sara Beth Wengerd tripled
and scored on a sacrifice


fly to put Sarasota up 2-0.
The Indians again went
quietly in the fourth
before the Sailors blew
the game open in the
fifth. Price opened the
inning with a home run
to center field. A walk,
a hit batter and a single
loaded the bases. An
error on the Indians al-
lowed the second run of
the inning to score and
Halie Roberson followed
with a two-run double
to chase Quinn from the
game.
Nikki Kovalsky came
into the game and the
Sailors kept the momen-
tum going as Wengerd
smacked another two-
run double to make the
score 8-0. After another
hit batter and single,
Kovalsky struck out Price
to record the first out of


the inning. Nicole Bush
walked to drive in a run
and Megan Custode
drove in another run
before Kovalsky struck
out the last two batters to
end the frame.
"(The Sailors) did a lot
of things that we need to
be doing," Sandburg said.
"They moved people and
they got the hits when
they needed them. Those
are things we have to get
better at."
The Indians scored
their only run of the game
in the bottom of fifth as
Kaitlyne Davis hit a home
run to center field.
"She started to hit
the ball hard in practice
but not home runs,"
Sandburg said. "That kind
of surprised me too."
Quinn and Kovalsky
combined to give up

11 runs on nine hits and
three walks while striking
out five.
"They're both a work
in progress because they
don't have a lot of varsity
pitching experience,"
Sandburg said of his


pitchers. "They're both
good kids who work hard
and will get it right."
In the junior varsity
contest the Indians and
Sailors tied 3-3 in a game

the varsity contest.

working his way out of

Verrill said, "We had all
kinds of opportunities to
score and should've easily
won the game if we just
get a couple more hits.
We've been doing that
all year long, though. We
left seven or eight guys
on base. We're not hitting
with runners on base."
Hammond retired
six of the seven batters
he faced, with the lone
baserunner reaching on a
single in the seventh.
"It's nice to have a
Cooper Hammond,"
Faulkner said.
Hammond said his
formula for success is a
simple one.
"Just hitting my spots,
making my pitches," he
said. "As long as I do that,
I'll be good."
Brandon Elmy and
Tyler Atwell had two hits
apiece for Venice.
The Indians have
recorded shutouts in five
of their seven games,
and the team's scoreless
inning streak has now
reached 30.
Faulkner said, "It's hard
to lose when you don't
give up any runs. You
have to take your hat off
to the pitchers."

The area is somewhat
more susceptible to
subsidence depres-
sions formed by other
causes, such as the settling
of a home's foundation
due to the decomposition
of organic material under
it. Shell beds under the
surface can dissolve and
cause subsidence too,
Means said.
"It's nothing like a
catastrophic ground
cover collapse," he said,
the statutory term for
the type of incident that
resulted in Bush's death.
Fortunately, because
sinkholes form slowly
even in sinkhole country,
there is rarely a loss of life.
"As tragic as this
particular incident is,"
he said, "it's a very rare
incident."
If a sinkhole occurred
locally, it would be more
likely to cause property
damage, which may or
may not be covered by
insurance. State law only
requires that a homeowners
policy cover a catastrophic
ground cover collapse. (See

Local'subsidence incidents'
The Florida Geological Survey has been tracking sinkhole activity since
the FGS was founded in 1907. Reports it has generated or received
from other agencies and individuals over the past 30 years or so have
been compiled into a database of"subsidence incidents"- instances
in which a depression formed in the ground that might or might not be
sinkhole-related.
It lists the following incidents for Sarasota County:
S106 Kenwood Road, Nokomis, July 21, 1981
495 Randolph Road, Venice, July 22, 1981
S201 Selma Ave., Englewood, Sept. 20,1985
3644 Sunset Beach Drive, Venice, Feb. 29, 1988
5219 Cape Leyte Drive, Sarasota, May 1, 1989
1322 Fir St. Venice, Aug. 13, 2003
Maps produced for FGS by the Florida Center for Instructional Technology
at the University of South Florida show all of the subsidences were less
than 10 feet in diameter.
There is only one incident listed for Charlotte County:
. 53 White Marsh Lane, Englewood, April 28, 2010
The FCIT map for the county was produced prior to the Englewood
incident listed above.


the house is condemned,"
said Jim Clinch of Roberts
Insurance Group in
Venice.
"Normal" sinkhole
damage isn't typically
covered, he said.
"Homeowners should
check with their agent,"
he said. "They should
have sinkhole coverage."
Such coverage comes
at a separate cost with a
separate deductible, he
said, because insurance
companies got the cover-
age taken out of standard
policies due to a high
volume of claims made
for "the basic settling all of


our houses experience."
Means said that there
is no way to detect a sink-
hole other than testing by
an engineer. Nor is there
any way to protect against
one forming. But they
are still rare enough that
even people in the area
where two have formed
in the last week should
not be concerned about it
happening to them.
The alternative, he
said, is to move to where
there is no risk of a sink-
hole forming, adding that
subsidence "takes place
all over our country."

Paula Martel, the race
manager who spoke
to Frohock on Sunday,
said heavy seas likely
disguised an object in the
water.
"What happened is he
hit something," Martel
said. "He doesn't know
what he hit.
"He thought everything
was okay and ended up
capsizing. All of it sank,
but he had a little bit of it
(sail) sticking out of the
water" for a time.
"We heard on Coast
Guard radio of a 20-foot
capsized boat and one
person aboard."
Martel said Frohock
is probably alive today
because he carried a
small knife attached to
his personal flotation
device.
"We have a require-
ment that every racer
wear a certain kind of
knife on their PFD. He
got tangled in his line as
the boat was going over
and remembered he had
that knife, and cut him-
self out of that situation,"
Martel said.
"It's a huge deal. It was


a lifesaver. Had he gotten
tangled and the boat
went over him, he might
not have survived. He
said his legs were tangled
up and he cut himself
right out."
An experienced sailor,
Frohock made this note
on the online WaterTribe
Everglades Challenge
registration page prior to
the race: "Hope the wind
is a little less than last
year."


On Tuesday at
10:30 a.m., the Venice
marine patrol was called
out to Gasparilla Island,
where the catamaran
resurfaced.
The 260-300 mile race,
depending on the course
taken, takes from two to
four days to complete
for most participants
and is a qualifier for
the Ultimate Florida
Challenge.

Venice bank robber remains at large


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Venice Police were still
searching Tuesday for a
lone suspect in a bank rob-
bery that occurred Monday
morning at Fifth Third
Bank at 273 S. Tamiami
Trail in downtown Venice.
The robbery took place
10:04 a.m., just a block
away from hundreds of
children in area schools.
Chief Tom McNulty said
the suspect got away with
an unspecified amount.
The perpetrator indicated a
bomb was involved, leading
to a lockdown of nearby
Venice Elementary School
andVenice High School.
McNulty said the inves-
tigation was active and
didn't release any more
details on the suspect.
Anyone who may have
seen anything unusual in
or around the bank on this
date is encouraged to call
VPD at 941-486-2444.
McNulty said VPD
requested the lockdown
as a precaution.
The Sarasota County
School District issued an
automated phone call to
parents shortly after the
lockdown. A second mes-
sage was sent at 11:45 a.m.
notifying parents the
lockdown was lifted.
Nearby businesses
were also locked down.
"Due to the proximity,
we wanted to make sure
we erred on the side of
caution by issuing the lock-
down because we didn't
know where the suspect
went," McNulty said.
There were no injuries
during the robbery,
McNulty said.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office bomb squad
assistedVPD on scene, said
spokeswomanWendy Rose.
The Sheriff's Office SWAT
team was not called out,
she said, addressing social
media rumors.
By 12:30 p.m., the city
of Venice issued a news


The Venice Police Department has issued this photo of the bank
robber. He wore a broad-brimmed hat that covered most of his
face. The photo was taken from bank video.


release on the robbery.
Traffic was closed
down for two blocks
in all directions, clos-
ing U.S. 41 Business
in Venice, and causing
emergency calls to be


rerouted around the area.
"They have enough
flexibility they can
reroute things around
pretty easily," spokesman
Alan Bullock said.

Watery Cirque Italia is flooded with talent


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Editor's note: This is a
review of the Saturday
evening performance of
Cirque Italia's 2013 show
in Venice.
The second time is
the charm for Cirque
Italia, which debuted its
unique water-fountain-
enhanced circus in
Venice a year ago.
This year, Cirque Italia
offers a complete circus
with aerialists, jugglers,
wire walkers, clown, acro-
bats, hoops act, tumblers,
a mermaid aerialist and
a rain-coated hand-
balancer and 35,000
gallons of water used the
way it should be.
The 2013 edition of
Cirque Italia is as polished
and professional as any
circus I have seen in the
past several years, whether
a 3-ring extravaganza or a
one-ring or one-stage show.
Last year, I was frustrat-
ed about the use of the
water fountains, which
had little to do with the
acts. This year, the water
enhances many acts,
which were designed with
the fountains in mind.
But even before the
fountains are revealed, the
show has the audience on
the edge of their seats and
gasping as The Human
Pyramid Act takes the stage
with dancing and tumbling.
When the men, colorfully
dressed in African tribal
garb, fall head forward from
a three-man-tall balancing
trick into parallel somer-
saults, most of us in the
audience gasped in unison,
matching the unison of the
acrobats.
Because of the water,
the circus ring is about 3-
or 4-feet higher than nor-
mal. That gives a different
perspective for some acts,
especially those on the
stage. Lighting also plays
a strong role in this show.
The bright colors bounce
off the giant aluminum
cube set in motion by The
Cube Duo ofVladimir Kim
and Nicolette Fornasari.
Lighting plays a role in
the high wire act, featur-
ing Capitino Mitrovith
and Ricardo Javier Ocoro.


Mitrovith is a typical wire
walker in size, but when
he puts a wooden chair
behind him on the wire,
sits down and then, little
by little, climbs up to a
standing position, the word
"typical" is no longer valid.
He follows that with a
head stand on the wire
- after removing the hat
he wears early in the act.
Ocoro is anything but
your usual wire walker.
He is big most likely
well over 200 pounds. He
rides a bicycle across the
wire and also walks across
with Mitrovith standing
on his shoulders. These
two may not have walked
across Niagara Falls but
what they do is breathtak-
ing in its own way.
James Bond music
and UV lighting further
enhance the act.
Anna Roudenko is part
acrobat and part contor-
tionist as she performs
on and around a trans-
parent plastic cube.
She and the Comedy
Matador Act featuring
members of the Fornasari
Family are the other two
acts that do not depend
on the water, although
one "Bull" dog does man-
age to soak the matador.
Elena Lev performs a
stunning hula hoop act
while also being part acro-
bat and part contortionist.
These acts are reason
enough to see this show,
but when the mermaid
turned aerialist, Sante
Fortunate, sings her siren
song and then rises up
into the top of the tent
in an aerial act and rain
comes from above in a ring
and also rises from below
around the ring, the magic
of Cirque Italia is revealed.
Coco the Clown ap-
pears between acts and
occasionally "borrows"
someone from the audi-
ence for his silliness.
While he is performing
in the audience or at the
edge of the stage, stage
hands are performing their
own ballet of taking down
wires, rigging the fountain
cover to rise into the top of
the tent, rolling and then
unrolling a carpet to cover
the ring and so much more


SUNI ri-U tIY JUSlII IiN liNNELL


that sometimes, one wants
to watch them instead of
the clown.
Sorry, Coco.
Two other water acts
are especially appealing.
As the lights come up
with the fountains, it
appears that a raincoat
is hanging on a hat rack.
The coat unfolds to reveal
a merman, Facuno Arturo
Kramer. His costume
seems to be the colorful
scales of a koi-type fish.
He performs a few
acrobatic maneuvers
on the stage before
climbing to the top of
the coat rack for some
visually stunning tricks
until all too soon he
rewraps himself in the
rain coat and seems to
disappear in the rain.
The final act, Duo A
and A, magically appears
within the watery ring to
perform one of the great
hand-balancing acts. As
they perform, the waters
rise and fall around them
and the lights remain
various shades of blue.
There is nary a sound
from the audience.
This circus could play
anywhere and entertain
anyone with an interest
in circus.
As Coco said,
"Bravissimo."


Last year's circus was
a benefit for the Venice
Circus Arts Foundation.
This year's show is a ben-
efit for a new organiza-
tion, which hopes to host
a multi-cultural festival
in Venice, The Venice Arts
and Library Foundation.
The show is in the blue
and white tent at 2373
South Tamiami Trail,
South Venice, just south
of the intersection with
S.R. 776. Tickets are $20-
$40 and parking is $3.
Call 941-549-5262 or visit
Cirqueltalia.com.
Beginning Thursday,
there will be a second
circus-type show in Venice.
IllusionAria, featuring
tenor/magician Joseph
Spinella with Cirque du
Soleil performers and
others. A portion of the
proceeds of IllusionAria
will go to theVenice Circus
Arts Foundation project
to save the historic circus
arena in Venice. This circus
willbe in a white tent at
1687 U.S. Highway 41
Bypass South. For tickets,
call 941-275-4150 or visit
TenorOflllusions.com.
Both circuses will con-
tinue through March 17,

Thursday through Sundays.

Environmental festival draws a crowd


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

The recent sixth
annual Second Nature
Environmental
Festival, held at the
Myakkahatchee Creek
Environmental Park,
was quite the success,
according to organizers.


The well-attended
event offered crafts and
games for children, and
opportunities to learn
more about conservation
and native plants and
animals.
Parks and Recreation
Coordinator Kathy
Forsyth was very pleased
with the turnout.


"We're definitely more
crowded this year," she
said. "The signage is
better and there are more
vendors. We have 35 10
more than last year."
It was also the North
Port's first Viva Florida
event, officially kicking
off North Port's efforts
to join the celebration


of Florida's 500th
anniversary.
"The Viva Florida web-
site wants all the pictures
from today," Forsyth said.
Exhibitors included
the Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection, the North
Port Art Center, the
North Port Library, the


Peace River Audubon
Society, Sarasota County
Mosquito Management,
the Peace River Wildlife
Center, the Coastal
Wildlife Club and more.
Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson stood next
to the children's craft-
ing area while two of


her kids, Madison, 4,
and Johnny, 7, colored
and cut out pictures of
animals.
"This is great," she
said. "We've been here 45
minutes and haven't even
gotten to half of it."

As an avid runner
Chris Rozansky was at
the top of his game, but
after heart disease hit
him at just 34 years old,
he wants to spread the
message of awareness
and survival.
"You name it. I did
it kayaking, cycling,
backpacking, mountain
climbing and my favor-
ite: running marathons,"
Rozansky said. "There
wasn't anything that
could stop me."
But in May of last
year a silent killer nearly
did stop him. While
Rozansky, who is the
Venice Municipal Airport
manager, may have been
the epitome of good
health, his genes nearly
got the best of him.
"I was cycling in
Longboat Key and felt
this sharp pain in my
chest," he said. "I ignored
it and kept going. A few
weeks later, I started
feeling light-headed.
This continued for a
few weeks so I went to a
walk-in clinic."
After a physical exam


and blood work, he was
told everything was
normal.
"The chest pain and
light-headedness just
kept coming back," he
said.
One night the pain was
so bad that Rozansky's fi-
ancee rushed him to the
ER. Again, after several
tests, he was told every-
thing looked normal.
The pain persisted.
Rozansky had long
known he had a family
history of heart disease,
and his father had
passed away recently
from the condition. After
doing some research
online, Rozansky de-
cided it was time to see a
cardiologist.
"They did a stress test
and a catheterization
on me," he said. "I could
hardly believe the results.
They were far from nor-
mal as I had been told in
the past."
He was told he had a
one-inch, 100-percent
blockage in one artery
and a 75-percent block-
age in another.
"The doctor said the
only reason I was alive

Chris Rozansky, the Venice Municipal Airport manager, went to
several doctors after suffering chest pains but was told he was
okay. Trusting his instincts, he visited a cardiologist and learned
he was a prime candidate for a heart attack. He now wants
others to know his story.


was the collateral arteries
that had formed as a
result of my physical
activity," Rozansky said.
His doctor explained
the situation.
"This condition is not
something we typically
see in a 34-year-old
athletic man," said
cardiovascular, thoracic
and vascular surgeon,
Dr. Jonathan Fong, from
the Venice-Ocala Heart


Institute. "His blockages
were more consistent
with those of a much
older patient."
After a period of trying
to medicate Rozansky's
condition, it was deter-
mined he would need
bypass heart surgery.
"Part of me was like,
'How can this be? I'm
34 years old and a
candidate for bypass?'
But I knew it was my


only chance of survival,"
Rozansky said.
His doctor was happy
with the surgery.
"The procedure went
very smoothly." Fong
said. "We were able
to bypass the blocked
arteries without any
complications."
Now more than two
months post operation,
Rozansky is happy to re-
port he is feeling better.
While he won't be cleared
to run a marathon any
time soon, he does walk
at least two hours a day
with his new wife by his
side.
"She has been amaz-
ing," he said. "I would
not have made it
without her. She was
there every step of the
way. My message to
others is to get checked
immediately if you
suspect something is
wrong with your heart.
Don't put it off because
the most important
thing is being there for
your loves ones."

First Baptist prepares for Watoto choir


STAFF REPORT

Allan Crull, chairman
of the missions board of
First Baptist Church of
Venice, is busy organizing
the arrival of the Watoto
Children's Choir due to
perform at 6 p.m. Friday,
March 8 at the church.
The Watoto Children's
Choir was founded by
Christian minister Gary
Skinner and since 1994
has travelled all around
the world as advocates
and ambassadors for the
children of Africa.


There are 33 people
traveling with the Watoto
program, 22 children
and 10 adults, and hotel
rooms and accommo-
dations at host family
homes are being arranged
as well as meals.
"These children are
so well behaved," Crull
said. "We have nine host
families from the church
who have volunteered to
house the members for
the night."
The children in the
choir have suffered the
loss of their parents


either through war or
disease and live in the
Watoto children's village.
It promises to be a lively,
colorful show present-
ingWatoto's vision and
mission through their
stories, music and dance
raising awareness about
the plight of the orphaned
and vulnerable women
and children of Africa.
The First Baptist
Church of Venice is at
312 W Miami Ave. A love
offering will be taken. For
more information, call
941-485-1314.

Sarasota County Schools conduct survey


PROVIDED BY THE SARASOTA
COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT

Each year, the Sarasota
County School District
conducts a Parent
Climate Survey to ask
parents and guardians
how well their schools
are performing in areas
like communication,
curriculum, manage-
ment, safety, academics,
maintenance and parent
involvement.
The deadline for


parents to fill out the sur-
vey is today, Wednesday,
March 6.
Information from the
survey helps the district
measure customer
satisfaction with school
services and identifies
areas that could be
improved.
Most respondents take
the survey online on their
home computer. The link to
the online survey is on the
district's website at www
SarasotaCountySchools.net.


Respondents may take
the survey by clicking
on the "Parent Climate
Survey" button on the
left side of the home
page.
Parents who do not
have Internet access may
take the survey online
at any county school
or library. Parents also
may call the district's
Communications
Department at
941-927-4009 to ask for a
copy of the survey to be


mailed to them.
District officials
strongly encourage all
families with children in
the district to take the
survey. The more people
who respond to the sur-
vey, the more helpful the
results will be in guiding
decisions.
The parent survey has
been translated to the
five languages other than
English that are most
often spoken in students'
homes Spanish,


Russian, Ukrainian,
Vietnamese and Haitian
Creole.
Responses are confi-
dential. The district uses
summary data and infor-
mation from the survey
to document successes
or identify problems,
but it does not identify
individual respondents.
More information
about the Parent Climate
Survey is available on
the Parents Page of the
district website under


the Frequently Asked
Questions link. Anyone
who would like more
information about the
survey also may call
the Communications
Department.
The district plans
to administer similar
climate surveys for
students and staff at
schools and district work
sites during the same
time period that the par-
ent survey is in progress,
officials said.


Panel tackles gun violence in schools


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

About 30 members of
the community looked at
possible ways of stopping
gun violence in schools
- including the National
Rifle Association's idea
of allowing school staff
to carry weapons and
championing mental
illness awareness at a
discussion Saturday in
Sarasota.
The event at Marina
Jack was put on by the
Better Government
Association of Sarasota
County, a nonpartisan,
nonprofit organization
with a mission "to pro-
mote an informed elec-
torate through education
and awareness of vital
public issues." The panel
included interim chief
of school security for

booth, Laura Aguilar
watched her children,
Sean, 7, and Hannah, 5,
take turns casting a fish-
ing pole to catch paper
fish. She brought them to
the festival to help them
learn more about protect-
ing the environment.
"If we don't teach them
now, they won't learn," she
said. "I don't remember my
parents ever doing this."
Also at the environ-
mental festival for the
educational aspects
were Kristin and Todd
Schuchmann and
their daughter, Rose,
12, a home-schooled
seventh-grader.
"We're in school right
now," said Kristin, shortly
after taking a picture of
Rose holding a juvenile
American alligator
brought to the event
by Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission officers.
"It feels so weird. I
expected it to feel harder,
but it's soft," Rose said of
Tinkerbell the alligator.
Ruth Przyborowski, visit-
ing the area from Dayton,
Ohio, was fascinated by
the totes, purses and hats
created by Rose RoyAlbers
of LaCasa manufactured
home park. Albers crochets
all her crafts which she
had for sale at the festival
- from plastic newspaper
and grocery bags, or old
plastic tablecloths.
"I do this while I'm
watching TV," she said,
adding the bags are great
as beach totes because
you can throw wet things
in them. "Or you can use

Sarasota Schools Darrell
Reyka, clinical and foren-
sic psychologist Dr. Eddy
Regnier, and John Krotec,
owner of Environeers
Inc., a provider of
camping equipment and
licensed firearms dealer.
Since the Sandy Hook
tragedy on Dec. 14,
where a gunman killed
26 children and teachers
at an elementary school
in Newtown, Conn., the
NRA and others have
taken the stance that
either teachers should
be armed or more armed
security should be
stationed on school cam-
puses. Reyka said instead
of weapons, which could
wind up in a student's or
even an intruder's hands,
it's the first 30 seconds
of an incident and
how teachers handle it
- that often determines


its outcome. That was
how dozens of lives were
saved at Sandy Hook.
"I think it's important
to note that the School
Board has very specific
policies on guns and
weapons at our school
campuses," Reyka said.
"Our policy prohibits
guns and weapons
with the exception of
licensed law enforce-
ment personnel. We see
it as our teachers' and
school staffs' obligation
to do what they need
to do to secure those
students (in the event of
an incident) and think
they need to focus on
that instead of trying
to figure out if there's a
gun available."
Krotec said training the
teachers to use the guns
would also be a problem.
"We have a hard


-r


than plastic bags."
"What a good way to
use things you'd otherwise


throw away," said a fasci-
nated Przyborowski.

enough time training
combat soldiers on
how to use firearms,"
said Krotec, a combat
veteran himself. "It's a
very stressful situation
when you have to point
a weapon at somebody
and shoot. It takes
special skills and skills
that need to be refined.
Guns can be a deterrent,
but unless you're trained
properly, they can also be
just as dangerous."
In North Port, two
Imagine Middle School
students, boys ages
13 and 12, were arrested
and expelled after bring-
ing an unloaded 9 mm
handgun onto the school
campus Jan. 29. The gun
was discovered after
another student alerted a
teacher.

and fewer than 4 percent
of those are capable of
committing a violent
crime.
"We do know that if
we had mental health
screening more available
to society, early detection
and treatment would
cut into that 4 percent,"
Regnier said.
Krotec led a very brief
discussion on gun con-
trol laws, saying, "they
have shown they re-
ally don't work." He said
there are 10 countries in
the world with a higher
homicide rate than the
United States and
citizens in every one of
those countries are not
allowed to own guns.


Venice resident
Richard Cannarelli, who
worked in the mental
health industry several
years ago, came away im-
pressed with the points
discussed by the panel.
He said there should be
a way to get the state
Legislature involved with
gun control, but feels
they've assumed a "right
wing" position that sides
with the NRA.
"I thought this was an
excellent representation
of all sides," Cannarelli
said about the diversity
of the panel. "Florida
is 49th and 50th in the
nation in providing
services to people who
are indigent or mentally
ill, and I think we pay the
price for that in the long
run."

'Soul Crooners


2'


brings down the house


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Nate Jacobs knows soul
music.
His recent adapta-
tion, "Soul Crooners 2,"
shows his skill in putting
together a wildly popu-
lar menu of lively and
historic sounds from the
1970s.
It's a given that Jacobs
not only knows how to
perform but succeeds in
developing some of the
best entertainers on the
local scene.
During another
sold-out show Feb. 27 at
Westcoast Black Theatre
Troupe's home base in
Sarasota the response
to the show has been so
overwhelming that two
more dates were added
- all four singers sang at
the top of their game.
Jacobs hit his stride
with songs like "Could
it Be I'm falling in Love"
and "What it Comes


Down To." Leon Pitts
had some ladies in the
audience giving rapt
attention as he flirted
during "You'll Never
Find Another Love Like
Mine" and "If You Don't
Know Me by Now."
Chris Eisenberg wowed
the audience with his
strong tenor voice and
smooth dancing moves
while performing "Never
Can Say Goodbye" and
"Didn't I Blow Your Mind
This Time." He was
styling.
Michael Mendez
performed with perfect
tones, choreographed
movements and much
charisma in his solos,
including "Always and
Forever" and "Me and
Mrs. Jones."
Besides singing solo,
at times the cast sang
together, performing
"Sing a Song" and "Be
Thankful For What
You've Got." They all
had fun singing "Play


That Funky Music ...
White Boy" while jok-
ingly pointing to James
Dodge, the troupe's
Caucasian music direc-
tor. He laughed with
them.
Typical of a troupe
performance, per-
formed in close prox-
imity to the audience,
the cast played to the
audience, taking turns
nodding to audience
members in each sec-
tion and making them
part of the performance.
Audience members
gladly participated with
nods of appreciation,
hand-clapping, toe
tapping and, yes, even
chair dancing.
Also well-known in
Nate Jacobs' shows, a
bit of history is shared.
Troupe member
Emmanuel Avraham
gave tidbits of history
when introducing music
sets, such as saying the
1970s was a time of


"signature love songs
with universal themes."
More history was
revealed in a press
release, which quoted
the Rock 'n' Roll Hall
of Fame for saying that
"soul is 'music that
arose out of the black
experience in America
through the transmu-
tation of gospel and
rhythm & blues into a
form of funky, secular
testifying (lyrics).'"
The cast was accom-
panied by musicians
Dodge on bass; Todd
Bellamy, piano; Jamar
Camp, auxiliary key-
board; Etienne Porter,
drums; and James
Johnston, guitar.
Costumes are by
Cristy Owen, set by
Jim Florek, lighting by
Eric Furbish, sound
engineering by Sean
Robinson, technical
directing by Shane
Straight, scenic artistry
by John Reynolds. Tony

Have You Reviewed Your Annuities

Recently?


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

* Are you aware of your
income or death benefits?

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


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



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

Investment and insurance products:
I NOT FDIC-lnsured 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:

4KQJ 1065 8 84 6 AK 106

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

A These days you make a jump shift
as responder with a hand that meets
one of two criteria one containing
a self-sufficient suit of its own, or a
powerful hand with support for
partner's suit. This hand certainly
meets the first of these, so jump to
two spades.

Q 2 Vulnerable, you hold:

4 AK J 42 Y 9 5 0K10 4 A QJ 6

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

A While this hand is considerably
stronger than the one above, it meets
neither of the criteria for a jump shift.
Bid one spade.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

AAK94 CA6 Q 109241054

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

A The auction marks partner with
some strength so there is little to
choose between defending or trying
to buy the hand. We would hate to let
the opponents get a partial because of
cowardice on our part double and
see what happens.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:


SA 10 9 3 7 0 9862 *A J75


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A Obviously, it is simply a matter of
whether you raise to three spades or
four. You should upgrade your two
aces by a point making your hand
worth 12 points or thereabouts. Our
vote goes to four spades.

Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4863W 70 QJ954A9852


The bidding has proceeded:

A You have no idea where partner is
headed, but it can do no harm to
show your best suit. Bid three clubs.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

The bidding has proceeded:

be working as well as you might
wish. Still, you have enough to play
game in hearts. Bid it.

Little Red Pill Works For

Blood Pressure & Cholesterol,

Improves Blood Flow in 1 Hour!


Dr. Stephen Sinatra, known as
America's #1 cardiologist, discovered
an alternative to omega-3 fish oil. He
pioneered the use of Calamarine oil
with high levels of DHA and EPA and
five other heart healthy nutrients. The
result is his "Little Red Pill", which
helps improve overall heart health.
Better Blood Pressure
In Just Weeks
Mrs. Winter confirms, "My blood
pressure is very good. My husband's
blood tests came back perfect. In 2
weeks I noticed improvements. I'm
walking better and feeling more
healthy."
62% Better Blood Flow
In Just 1 Hour
The star ingredient in this formula
is a patented form of resveratrol
(found in red grapes) called resVida.
A clinical study showed resVida
helped improve blood flow by 62% in
just 1 hour.
Superior Heart Health
Dr. Sinatra includes a highly
absorbable form of heart healthy
CoQlO called Hydra Q-Sorb, shown
to be 8X more absorbable than
traditional CoQ 10.
"I've found that I have more
energy, stamina and can walk further
than I could before," says Florence V.


Guaranteed Results
"I was surprised me as a very good
energy booster," says Archie.
"If you don't see an improvement
in circulation and energy levels using
Omega Q Plus with Resveratrol -
you won't pay for it," promises Dr.
Sinatra.

Over 6 million bottles of Omega Q
Plus with Resveratrol have been sold.

Do You Hear, but not Understand?

You May Have Hearing Loss....

or Maybe it's just WAX....


We Can Find Out!










Never put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear.
Even this X-Large cotton swab is too small to put in your ear. Your ears are
actually self-cleaning! Using a cotton swab to clean your ear pushes wax
deeper into the ear canal and can create a blockage. Wax blockage is
one of the most common causes of hearing loss, and we have
an easy and painless way to check your ears. We'll use a miniatur-
ized camera to do a complete inspection of your ear canal and ear drum to
see if there's a wax blockage problem. Please call today to make an
appointment for your FREE Ear Canal Inspection!

FREE Ear Canal Inspection and

Hearing Consultation for 4 days Only!

Tuesday Thru Friday March 5th 8th
Because of the comprehensive nature of the hearing evaluation, please call ahead for your special appointment.

Venice Theatre and IVMS students to perform


FROM VENICE THEATRE
Island Village
Montessori School and
Venice Theatre will hold
a collaborative produc-
tion of the musical
"Life is a Highway!" by
VT's own playwright-
in-residence, Ronald K.
Myroup.
IVMS after-school
students will perform
on Venice Theatre's


MainStage Saturday,
March 9, at 1 p.m.
and 4 p.m. The IVMS
Choraliers will present a
pre-show at 12:30 p.m.
A donation of $10 in
exchange for tickets can
be given at the school
in Jan Pearman's office,
2001 Pinebrook Road,
Venice, or by calling
941-484-4999, ext. 224.
Remaining tickets will be
available at the theater


beginning one hour
before the performance.
Venice Theatre is located
at 140 W. Tampa Avenue
on the island in Venice.
Coined "IMAGINE,"
the partnership be-
tween IVMS and Venice
Theatre is in its ninth
year. Jan Pearman,
director of the IVMS
after-school program,
sees theatre as an op-
portunity to challenge


her students while
catering to a variety of
curriculum levels.
Candace Artim and
Sandy Davisson, direc-
tor of Venice Theatre's
education and outreach
department, along with
Gladys Varga, have
worked on-site at IVMS.
Their time with the
students culminates
in this fully-mounted
production on Venice


Theatre's MainStage.
The IMAGINE program
enables children to
express themselves cre-
atively through drama,
develop their speaking
and general social
skills, and learn the skills
needed for acting and
musical theatre.
"Students that are
exposed to perform-
ing arts develop their
imagination, use both


sides of their brain and
increase their problem-
solving skills," Davisson
said. "Most important,
though, the performing
arts develop students
that can build the
airplane as well as
imagine one. These are
the types of skills that
our future leaders and
explorers need, and
theater is a perfect way
to do that."


Time for another Venice


Pillsbury contestant


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
It has been more than
10 years since there was
a finalist from Venice at
the Pillsbury Bake-Off.
Judie Bayliss was a
finalist at the 2002 event
in Orlando because of her
recipe for Mediterranean
Spirals in the Casual Snacks
& Appetizers category. She
and her enormous library
of cookbooks have since
moved away from Venice.
That still leaves thou-
sands of cooks, many of
whom are older and more
experienced than the
average Bake-Off contes-
tant. For readers who, like
Bayliss, have long aspired
to be one of the 100 finalists
in the march around the
ranges that occurs at every
Bake-Off, there are some
rules and category changes
for the 46th contest. The


finals will be held in Las
Vegas Nov. 10-12 at the Aria
Resort & Casino.
The biggest difference
is that America will select
the 100 finalists. In years
past, that was done
in Minneapolis. Each
recipe was compared for
originality against those
in the Pillsbury library
of more than 100,000
cookbooks. Eventually
the thousands of entries
were winnowed down to
a few hundred before the
final 100 were selected.
This year, there are
three entry categories
and three entry periods.
Doable Dinners entries
closed Feb. 7. Voting will
be March 14-28.
Simple Sweets and
Starters recipes need to
be entered from April 4
to May 9. Voting is open
June 13-27. (Examples:
cookies, bars, pies, tarts,


bite-size appetizers,
tartlets, pinwheels, puffs,
bruschetta or focaccia.)
Quick Rise and Shine
Breakfasts recipes need to
be entered July 4 through
Aug. 8. Voting will be
Sept. 12-26. (Examples:
sweet rolls, pull-aparts,
pastries, breakfast breads,
egg dishes, breakfast
sandwiches.)
Judges will select
60 recipes from each
category for public
voting. Voters must be 18
and older as of March 14.
Voters will select 33
finalists in the first two
categories and 34 finalists
from the third category.
Finalists win a trip to
the Bake-Off, two-night
resort stay at the Aria,
event-sponsored meals, a
GE countertop appliance
and $125.
Be sure to check the
product list and keep it


simple, although each
recipe must contain
two different eligible
ingredients from the
official contest list on the
Website. Other than salt,
ground black pepper and
water, recipes are limited
to "no more than seven
ingredients." Preparation
time must be 30 minutes
or less, not including
baking or cooling time.
Contest sponsors
include The J.M. Smucker
Company, GE Appliances
and Green Giant. The
winner will receive
$1 million plus $10,000 in
GE appliances. There is a
second prize of $10,000
and $3,000 in GE appli-
ances and a third prize of
$5,000 and $2,000 in GE
kitchen appliances.
There also are several
specialty prizes for those
who do not win one of
the top three prizes. One

for a recipe that uses at
least 1/4 cup of Jif Peanut

Father Vincent Sheehy picks the winning prize ticket at the Our
Lady of Lourdes Catholic Council of Women Fashion Show and
Luncheon. Connie Cahill looks on.


The season keeps marching along


FRAN VALENCIC
Love was in the air at
the annual Our Lady of
Lourdes Catholic Council
of Women fashion show.
The committee, led by
chair Nancy Gorski, has
the fashion show formula
down pat as it always
sells out several weeks
before the event.
Father Vincent
Sheehy, retired pastor
of Our Lady of Lourdes,
thanked the women for
doing Christ's work in
the community. They
visit the sick, bring Holy
Communion to the elder-
ly in nursing homes and
volunteer at the retreat


center. Father Sheehy
leads by example as he
continues to do Christ's
work in this community
even though he is retired.
Nancy gave a special
shout out to Dave
Warren, who does all
the colorful printing for
the fashion show and
luncheon each year.
About 100 prizes
valued from $25 to $450
added to the excitement
of the afternoon. Clothes
from Lisa's Classic Rose
gave everyone a chance
to ooh and ahh. Money
raised benefits various
organizations in this
community.
Bravo.

Celebrating the
90s
The National
Association of Retired
Federal Employees
celebrated 54 years


of camaraderie in the
Venice, Englewood and
Nokomis area with a
luncheon. Each of the
nine members who were
born in the 1920s spoke
about their work.
Mayor John Holic en-
joyed conversations with
the seniors and answered
questions about issues
in Venice, especially the
Circus Arena.
Chaplain Linda
Brasswell described the
90s group as people who
knew they had to "get up,
dress up and show up."
She added, "Successful
people know no one is in
charge of your happiness
but you."
For information, visit
narfe717.org.

One of our best
The special person
of this week is Father
Vincent Sheehy.


This nice man contin-
ues to represent Christ
in this community long
after he has retired
as pastor of Our Lady
of Lourdes Catholic
Church. He says Mass
at assisted-living
facilities and minis-
ters to the elderly. He
realizes the importance
of bringing comfort
to those who built the
church.
He stays active at
Our Lady of Lourdes by
attending social events
like the fashion show and
luncheon and has fun
participating in pulling
raffle tickets as chairs
make comments like,
"We know he's honest."
He is the epitome of a
parish priest. This com-
munity is blessed by him.
Father Vincent Sheehy
is one of the retired
priests who make Venice
a great place to live.


Kim Kollar, aka the terrific Dolly Levi in the MainStage produc-
tion of"Hello, Dolly!" playing through March 17, gave the audi-
ence a preview at the subscribers reception at Venice Theatre.

Concerts and Corvettes
are in your future
This afternoon at 3 p.m., the Gentlemen of Jazz will
perform their weekly concert at the Gazebo in Centen-
nial Park in the heart of downtown Venice. Bring chairs or
blankets for seating.
Friday, at 7 p.m. at the same place, Venice MainStreet
will present a live concert in the park. You will have to be
surprised as the information was incomplete as this was
being written.
Sunday morning, however, there will be no surprises -
just lots of Corvettes of every vintage in Centennial Park.
There might even be some on Venice and Nokomis avenues
if past years are any indication. Corvette owners come from
many miles to show their own cars and check out Corvettes
belonging to others.
Tuesday afternoon, head back to the gazebo area at
3 p.m. for yet another concert the Happy Time Band.
Tuesday through Sunday, through March 17,"Hello
Dolly" continues at Venice Theatre. If you can latch on to
some tickets, do it. This is one good show and tickets are in
short supply. Call 941-488-1115.
Also in short supply are tickets to "Soul Crooners 2,
another great Nate Jacobs creation at West Coast Black
Theatre in Sarasota. Jacobs also performs with
Emmanuel Avraham, Christopher Eisenberg, Michel
Mendez and Leon S. Pitts II. Call 941-366-1505.
Lego fans might like the news of an annual pass for
$99 with free parking. Now there's a deal! And with
all the new things in the works there, it will only gain in
value. Legoland Florida is not just fun but also preserved
a reasonably good chunk of the old and much revered
Cypress Gardens at Winter Haven. Imagine hoop-skirted
Southern belles made from Lego blocks. Visit; florida.

Loud and proud
ByJAYCRIDLIN
1 I i ,,i I iI
If Jon Bon Jovi is an expert on anything, it's vitality.
The man loves to sing about livin'life and lovin'
livin'and lovin'lettin'loose. And that's okay, because
the one thing Bon Jovi does best is inhibit inhibitions,
making fans feel safe to live out loud as they scream
like the kings of karaoke.
On Friday, before a sold-out crowd of 18,492 at the
Tampa Bay Times Forum and many thousands more
around the globe, thanks to a live stream on BonJovi.
com as Bon Jovi serenaded the crowd with three hours
of hair metal hits, thrusting and gyrating and wailing
until everyone felt just as vital as him.
The show came two weeks before the band releases
its 12th album, "What About Now," but that fact was
almost immaterial. Sure, they played the new stuff,
and some of it even sounded like vintage Bon Jovi as
fans raised their hands just as much during "Because
We Can"as they did on, well, 1986's"Raise Your Hands:'
But when a Bon Jovi concert kicks off with "SHOT
THROUGH THE HEART, AND YOU'RE TO BLAME!,"it's hard
not to get amped about the classics. And JBJ, who
turned 51 on Saturday, trusted and gyrated through
them all, from "You Give Love a Bad Name"to second-
encore smash "Livin'on a Prayer."
An open, circular stage provided unobstructed sight
lines for most in the arena that is, until a backdrop
of giant video columns began to rise and fall behind
the stage. You felt bad for the suckers stuck behind
them that is, until 2006's bluesy "We Got It Goin'
On." Up and down the singer pranced upon the undu-
lating columns, wagging his fingers, hips and lips to
the crowd, and oh, you better believe the kiddies came
running down the aisles fora peek.


Another adventure

to share
So I had another night out on the town this past weekend.
This time it was my dad's birthday and he had tickets to
McCurdy's Comedy Theatre in Sarasota.
Although my dad lived in Sarasota for most of my life
and I spent every weekend there as a kid, I had never been
to McCurdy's. I was pleasantly surprised. If I didn't have it
programed into my GPS, and I wasn't looking for it, I would've
passed right by the shopping center where the comedy
theater is located in actually. However, once you get in you
almost feel like you're in a back-alley comedy club in a city.
It has a very unique atmosphere for this area. The walls are
adorned with photos of some of the most famous comics of
all time including Larry the Cable Guy and Chris Rock. The
Sunday show starts out with an open mic. Three aspiring
comics stand up and do a few minutes of material that
they've rehearsed, which leads to an opening comic who then
opens for the featured comedian.
McCurdy's is known for bringing in the best of the best to
Southwest Florida and they delivered that this past weekend.
According to my dad, who used to frequent the theatre
weekly, he said he'd never been disappointed.
Though they do serve snacks, it's not a dinner theater. The
menu consists of finger-foods such as popcorn, nachos and
soft pretzels, so make sure you grab dinner before the show. If
you're a comedy fan like me, check out McCurdy's Comedy Club
website at www.mccurdyscomedy.com for upcoming shows.
This weekend has plenty in store for everyone in all areas
of Southwest Florida. Arcadia is hosting its annual Rodeo and
Venice will be showing off all kinds of Corvettes at Corvettes in
Venice on the Isle. Musicwill be in the airat both Punta Gorda's
Funk Fest featuring the ever popular Here Come the Mummies,
and at the Englewood PODS Music Festival which will feature
many different talented musicians.

clotted cream or lemon curd at Mary
Margaret's Tea and Biscuit, they're
bound to return. It happens all the time:
regular visitors hail from Naples and the
West Palm Beach area.
And they don't mind waiting.
Co-owner Dennis Tyson said in-season
wait times are often an hour on week-
days, three hours on Saturdays.
The "tea room," as it's known by
locals, opened in late 2009, launched by
big-city-turned-Green-Acres proprietors
Tyson and Bruce Neveau who by sheer
accident got to thinking a Victorian-style
restaurant would mesh with their new
city's many similar-styled homes. Their
concept isn't patterned after a tradi-
tional, pinky-poised-in-the-air proper
afternoon English high tea. In fact, some
people don't even order a pot of the
restaurant's signature rose petal and
citrus tea, opting for beer, wine or -
gasp coffee. And multi-tiered trays
of cucumber and cream cheese finger
sandwiches aren't even on the menu.
"The funny thing is that people think
because we're a 'tea room'we cater
mostly to ladies," said Tyson. "Thirty-five
percent of our customers are men. We
had 42 bikers here just last week. We're
really more of a restaurant than an
average tea room. Men come here too."
The interior is only slightly feminine,
charming and filled with antiques,
Tiffany-esque lamps, a settee and even a
working 1873 Estey Reed organ. Guests
dine at linen-covered tables in the main
dining area or the back parlor, served
by apron-wearing female servers and
the top-hat-and-coattail-clad Tyson or
Neveau.
Since its opening, the restaurant has
earned a loyal following for its lobster
bisque and turkey sandwich, the latter a
tasty pressed combo of smoked turkey,
asparagus, Dijon, Havarti and cheddar
cheeses and mayo served on homemade
bread. Recent menu additions include


shrimp cocktail and a salmon filet salad
with orange vinaigrette dressing. Mary
Margaret's also serves a variety of
salads, sandwiches, wraps and quiches.
Although most menu items are
authentically English and Liverpool
specific, Tyson and Neveau are open
to new ideas, taste testing a recipe at
the insistence of a regular patron. They
loved the Malva pudding so much, they
added the South African dessert of
apricots in a buttery cream sauce to the
restaurant's six last-course offerings,
which also includes white-chocolate


bread pudding, English sticky toffee
pudding and those have-to-have scones,
served with a trifecta of made-on-the-
premises clotted cream, lemon curd or
strawberry jam (go ahead and order all
three). Fingers crossed the men have
recently brought home peaches from a
recent jaunt to Georgia.
Mary Margaret's Tea and Biscuit, open
daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., is located
in the can't-miss pink Arbor building at
10 South Polk Ave. in downtown Arcadia.

DINING OUT GO


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Loosely translated to English, plaza means
'an open space orsquare'in Spanish. The logo
on the"Plaza Mexico Restaurant Bar and Grill"
depicts a matadorwaving a red cape at a bull
in a large arena in Mexico under a bright sun.
"I chose the name because after the
matador kills the bull, everyone celebrates
with lots of good food and drinksowner David
Alvarez said."I can't offer a bullfight" he joked,
"but customers can enjoy a wide variety of
authentic Mexican cuisine and beverages, and
excellent service."
The restaurant, located at 2390 Tamiami
Trail, in Port Charlotte, is newly refurbished,
decorated and remodeled to resemble a
Mexican cantina, and Latin background music
will add credence to a pleasant dining experi-
ence. Seating for 180 customers is available
in comfortable booths, tables and chairs, or at
the bar.
Alvarez claims he was fortunate to move


from Jalisco, a small town in Mexico, to the
United States when he was 15 years old. He
worked at his uncle's restaurant in Virginia for
three years. Then he worked at friends' restau-
rants in Delaware and South Carolina.
Alvarez realized his dream of owning his
own business when he bought Plaza Mexico
in Rhode Island that his brother, Hector, runs
since Alvarez opened his second restaurant in
Port Charlotte.
"I love this area and the weather,"Alvarez
stated. "After opening only two months ago,
we are very busy and extremely grateful to our
satisfied customers."
Alvarez added, "Mexicans love soup, and it
seems the variety of customers here enjoy it,
too. Especially the caldo de cameron (soup of
seven fish). And the guacamole is made fresh
by a server."
A wide variety of appetizers, salads,
quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos, and tacos
are available as well as specialty seafood,
chicken and steak dishes. Not usually seen on
other Mexican restaurant menus are chamarro


adobado (lamb), and choriqueso (chorizo
sausage and cheese). Seafood lovers will savor
mojarra con camarones, tilapia and shrimp
served with rice, avocado, lettuce, pico de gallo
and tortillas, and crab quesadillas, two flour
torillas filled with dungeness crabmeat and
pico de gallo, rice, and salad.
Molcajete, grilled sirloin steak, green onions,
chorizo and shrimp served with rice, beans,
lettuce, guacamole pico de gallo and tortillas,
is a popular item. Also featured are medium
or large"make your own combo."Vegetarian
dishes are also offered.
Save room for three-mile cake, Alvarez's
favorite dessert, a vanilla cake prepared with
regular, condensed and evaporated milk,
fresh peaches in the middle, and topped with
whipped cream and strawberries.Yummy!


The sangria is homemade, and there is a
plentiful selection of Mexican tequilas and
beer. Domestic wine and beer are also avail-
able.
The servers, dressed professionally in black
pants, shirts and red ties (perhaps the red
symbolizes the bullfighter's red cape), are
knowledgeable and friendly.
Alvarez is pleased he learned the restaurant
business starting at the bottom. He likes
providing jobs, and trains every one of his
employees to meet his high standards.
The restaurant is open seven days a week,
from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through
Thursday (lunch specials are offered from
11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.), 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Friday and Saturday,and noon to 10 p.m. on
Sunday. Takeout is available. Call 941-391-5319.

Venice BBQ Bash a World qualifier


EI nC. March 6-12, 2013


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Suncoast BBQ and Bluegrass Bash
was selected as "an automatic qualifier for
the World Food Championships (http:www.
worldfoodchampionships/.com) in Las
Vegas this coming November."
"In just three short years we have
accomplished what most other venues
have not," organizing committee chairman
Don Fisher said. "This adds to our status
as a qualifying event for the Jack Daniel's
World Championship and the American
Royal World Series of BBQ."
According to Fisher, the Las Vegas event
is one of the largest in the United States.
BBQ is one of the seven food categories


in the giant contest. There is a $50,000
purse for the BBQ contest alone. Last
year, 90 teams qualified from throughout
the country, according to the World Food
Championships website. PMButcher BBQ
of Chandler, Okla., took top honors in
BBQ, and was named the first-ever World
Barbecue Champion in early November at
the World Food Championships, hosted by
Adam Richman in Las Vegas. That placing
earned the team $10,000 and one of seven
seats in the finals, earning an additional
$2,500 for its fourth-place-finish.
Top honors, plus an extra $50,000 prize,
in last year's inaugural event went to Chef
Robert Butler for a "braised pork sandwich
with Asian-flavored aioli, lettuce, herb and
pear salad with a kim chi vinaigrette."


There were winners in seven
categories: burger, barbecue, chili,
sandwich, chef, side-dish and recipe
at last year's event which was held at
Caesar's Palace.
"We are now considered by
many to be one of the premier BBQ
contests in the Southeastern United
States," Fisher said. "This could not
have happened without everyone's
support."
The fourth annual Suncoast BBQ
and Bluegrass Bash will be April 20 at
the Venice Airport Festival Grounds.

GO EVENTS THIS WEEK


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Just how popular an event is the Arcadia
All-Florida Championship Rodeo? Well, the
numbers speak for themselves-around
20,000 people attended last year's rodeo
and Don Hall, president of the Arcadia All-
Florida Championship Rodeo Association,
says that he's expecting up to 25,000 at
this year's festivities.
From its pioneer beginnings, when
competing cowboys and ranchers matched
their skills for the entertainment of audi-
ences, the Arcadia Rodeo has evolved into
a national sporting attraction, drawing
top cowboy athletes from across the
country.
"Last year, we gave away $100,000 in
prize money," Hall said. "That's what draws
the people in-they know they have the
opportunity to win something."
Hall added that many of the cowboys
who will be competing in Arcadia are the
same ones you would see at the National
Finals, which is held every year in Las
Vegas, and is considered to be the "Super
Bowl" of rodeos.
If you've never been to a rodeo, you may
not know exactly what to expect. There
are a number of events that are usually
performed at rodeos, and you can expect


to see them, in addition to other attrac-
tions, each day at the Arcadia Rodeo. More
detailed descriptions can be found on the
rodeo's website.
Bull Riding
The bull rider holds a flat-braided
rope during the eight-second ride on the
2,000-pound animal. The cowboy's control
during the ride and the bull's bucking
efforts each account for half of the
rider's score. Bull riding requires balance,
coordination, quick reflexes, flexibility and
(perhaps above all else) a positive mental
attitude.
Bareback Riding
Bareback riders grasp a "rigging' a
hand-hold made of leather and rawhide
that is secured to the horse with a cinch.
Bareback riding is the most physically
demanding event in rodeo, because
immense physical stress is placed on the
arms and back. The horse's bucking action
contributes halfa rider's score, as does the
rider's technique.
Barrel Racing
This is an event for the cowgirls, who
have to practice long hours to train their
horses. But even a good horse can't
perform without a determined and
experienced rider who knows how to use
her hands, her feet and her legs to cue her


horse around the pattern. Their time is
measured and the horses are also judged
on how well they stay in the cloverleaf
pattern.
Saddle Bronc
Considered rodeo's "classic" event,
saddle bronc riding requires the balance
of a gymnast, the timing of a springboard
diver and the grace of a dance-all
aboard a 1,200-pound pitching, twisting
bronc. The cowboy is judged on his
technique and the horse is judged on its
bucking efforts.
Steer Wrestling
This is the quickest event at the rodeo,
usually taking between three and five
seconds for each cowboy to complete. The
objective is to wrestle the steer to the
ground using only leverage and strength.
There is also a "hazer" in the ring, a
second cowboy whose task is to keep the
steer from veering away from the steer
wrestler.
Tie Down Roping
After giving the calf a head start, the
horse and rider give chase. As the cowboy
throws his loop, the horse comes to a
stop. After catching the calf, the cowboy
dismounts, runs to the calf, throws it to
the ground by hand and ties any three
legs together. The rope must remain tied


A -

for six seconds.
These events all take incredible athleti-
cism and skill to perform, both from the
cowboys and the animals. Hall says that
an event that he used to participate in as
a college student is now one of the more
popular ones at the rodeo.
"The favorite used to be the bull riding,
but now it's taken a backseat to bareback
bronc riding and saddle bronc," he said.
"They (the riders) really take a lot of pride
and care with the horses, and they're
really difficult to ride. They have to have
their hands on the reins every second."
He added that he's pleasantly surprised
that every single one of the main events
has already been filled, and that most of
the top 15 cowboy athletes in the country
in each category will be coming to Arcadia
for the rodeo.
For additional fun, there will be plenty
of other entertainment on tap all three
days of the rodeo. Country music singer/
songwriter Chris MacArthur, who has
been traveling around the nation and
performing for almost 30 years, will be
appearing daily with his band "The
Florida Cracker Boys."
An old-fashioned "shoot out"will
take place between the Tater Hill Bluff
Shootout Gang and the good townspeople
of Tater Bluff. The whole family will love

Celebrating its 85th year, the Arcadia
All-Florida Championship Rodeo is called the

everything we can to keep the program alive,
and keep it for the kids."
The nonprofit club is a family-friendly
place with its'own facilities at 1299 Southeast
Hargrave Street in Arcadia, less than a half
mile from the rodeo grounds. Families of all
ages can bring their horses and learn to ride,
from beginner to expert.
To help offset the cost of expenses, the
Saddle Club holds monthly barrel racing speed
shows on the fourth Friday night of each
month. "Our Saturday shows are for begin-
ners," Willhite noted. "A lot of people learning,
people training, people who just want to
have fun." Out of this club, the Quadrille
continues its place of excellence within the
rodeo community. "I've been a member of the
Saddle Club as a child since 1989," Quadrille
captain Laura Finley replied, about the team,
"Half the girls out here, we grew up together
and we were always at Saddle Club." It is the
special bond with their horses and their ability
to have a family organization to go to that
has made the Quadrille the talented precision
outfit so highly regarded today.
Eight couples performing an intimate dance
at high speed, the Quadrille has performed all
over the state of Florida, and on occasion, in
other states as well. Be sure to see these home-
town heroes when the rodeo comes to Arcadia.
Tickets range from S15 in advance up to S25

There's something for everyone this
Sunday at Punta Gorda's History Park as the
monthly antique show joins the weekly
farmers market. As an added bonus, The
Fiddle Crabs String Band will be performing
from 10 a.m. to noon.
The farmer's market is operated by the
Punta Gorda Historical Society. It features
vegetables, meats, baked goods, gift items
and more, with samples of various food
items for all who would like a taste test
before they buy.
This Sunday's antique fairwill feature
approximately 50 antique vendors all set up


and ready to go by 8 a.m. The antique part
of Sunday in the Park is the brainchild of
Robert DeFino, who owns Bobby"Tiques,"
an antique shop on historic Oak Street in
Arcadia, and Starr Zachritz, noted flora and
fauna expert, who regularly speaks on the
birds and gardens of the area, including
History Park. With the assistance of History
Park Manager Louie Desguin, who makes
the park an attraction in itself, an extra
special day is in store for visitors.
"Louie does a great job of keeping the
grounds clean' noted DeFino."The build-
ings are phenomenal."
The buildings are certainly an attraction
at a park called History Park. Structures
available to view include The Calaboose,


Punta Gorda's original town jail, The Trabue
Land Sales Office, the town's first post
office, and a number of other historical
buildings. As for the man behind the
antiques, DeFino has been in the business
of second-hand treasures since the age of
15."A lot of people look for their past They
want their past back',DeFino explained
of the popularity of antiques."Antique
furniture and stuff like that is made much
better than stuff thats made today and
sometimes its cheaper than buying the
new stuff."
DeFino also has advice for those in the
market for that special piece. "The best
time to buy an antique is when you see it,
because if you don't buy it then, somebody


else will buy it before you come back:'The
Punta Gorda Historical Society has been
preserving historic buildings for over 20
years. The Society operates the city-owned
A.C. Freeman House Museum in Punta
Gorda and the Punta Gorda Train Depot, in
addition to their work at History Park. The
park is located at 501 Shreve St., Between
Virginia and Henry streets in Punta
Gorda. The activities are free to the public,
including parking.
For more information on the antiques,
leave a message for Robert DeFino at
941-587-9424. For more information on

Corvettes are special cars.
You know this is true because they have
legions of fans who collect them, show
them and even write songs about them. As
an infamous Corvette poster stated, "They
don't write songs about Volvos."
This weekend, hundreds of owners, and
thousands of fans, will descend upon the
streets of Venice to pay homage to one of
the first American sports cars ever made.
"The Corvettes in Venice on the Isle is
put on by the Venice, Florida Corvette Club,"
said Al Royal, co-chair of the car show." This
is the ninth one, and we used to have the
show in September, but it was changed to
March four years go to avoid the possibility
of a hurricane."
One thing you don't want when you
have valuable vintage and new cars on
display is 70 mph winds whipping around.
So far, the date change has worked out
very well, as the Corvette show is highly
attended by club members and owners
showing their cars and spectators alike.
"We will have 120 Corvettes, plus our
club Corvettes that we will display, which
will be about 50 more," Royal said. "We
have them (the cars) come from all over
Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and the
other coast (of Florida.)"
Royal said that the registration fee to
include your car in the show is $25 when
you pre-register. But for that price, you also
get an invitation to the Meet and Greet
Welcome Party at the brand new Grill at
West Beach Resort.
"The evening before the show, they will
close their restaurant for us," Royal said.
"There will be a nice buffet, and we will
have room for about 150 people."
On the day of the show itself, there will
be a couple of display areas. On the west
side of Venice Avenue is where the Venice,
Florida Corvette Club members will be
parking their cars. Royal says that he is
going to have them lined up in chrono-
logical order, hopefully beginning with his


club's oldest car, a 1954 Corvette. If it's set
up that way, it will be especially inter-
esting to walk by the 50 orso cars and see
how the body styles have changed through
the years.
In the Centennial Park parking lot will be
the other entries for the various prizes that
the club will be giving out.
"Our Best of Show, the Bill Buck Jr,
Award will be given by his daughter, Robyn
Calkins," Royal said."The Mayor's Choice
award will be given by Mayor Holic, who
will be picking it himself."
There will also be plenty of door prizes,
a raffle for about 20 different themed
baskets and a 50/50 drawing, which actu-
ally reached about $1,300 at last year's
show.
This is not a typical competition with all
types of judging criteria. Royal says that
this is what is referred to as a'wash and
shine'type of judging. What the judges
are looking for is the quality of the general
maintenance and upkeep of the car-
making sure the car is clean and with no
dents or rips in convertible tops.
"For everyone who enters a car, I'm also
giving out $5 in'Bill Bucks; which they can
spend anywhere at the show, on food,
concessions or T-shirts," Royal said. "The
Venice High School Band Booster Club will
be there selling breakfast and lunch:'
Royal says that the car show is a great
opportunity for both owners and lovers of
the Corvette to see different types of the
popular car-even if they aren't exactly in
the market to buy one right now.
"We have some members (in the club)
who have saved theirwhole lives fora
Corvette," he said. "Then we have members
who buy a new one every year. My
favorites are the early ones-I had a '61
convertible that I got when I got back from
Vietnam in'65:'
Though he ended up having to sell it,
the fact that he still remembers it so well
is a testament to the passion of Corvette
owners. If you're a fan of the car, don't miss
the Corvettes in Venice on the Isle Show
this weekend.

The Florida Strawberry Festival
in Plant City mixes dozens of enter-
tainment choices with a county fair
environment and a whole lot of
strawberries.
No matter which road you take to
the fairgrounds, you will pass fields of
strawberries. Pickers are working hard
to supply the festival as well as all the
supermarkets and other outlets served
by the area's farmers.
At the festival, admission is $4-$8
per person and there is plenty of free
entertainment, many exhibits and
always racing pigs as well as straw-
berries. This year, Robinson's Racing
Pigs will streak around their track on


the grounds daily at 11 a.m., noon,
2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
There will be plenty of opportuni-
ties to eat your fill of strawberries
and even to take home freshly picked
berries. To learn about strawberry
production, visit the exhibit of the
Florida Strawberry Growers Associa-
tion south of the Milton E. Hull Armory
Building.
Also on festival grounds will be the
Kandu Magic Show, World Champion
Lumberjills, JUMP! the Ultimate Dog
Show, Runa Pacha "Indian World,"
Rock-It the Robot, Southwest Dairy
Farmers Milking Show and the 2013
Cover My Ride Tour.
In the Sweetbay Supermarket show-
case tent, daily entertainment includes
shows by Dennis Lee, the Jay Taylor


Band and the Sweeney Family Band
Country Comedy Revue. (Note that Lee
will not perform on March 8 or 9.)
Appearing three times daily in the
Borden Dairy Strawberry Tent will be

All these shows are included in the
daily admission price, along with special
daily events such as today's American
Heroes Day, Thursday's Senior Citizen's
Day and Saturday's Farm Worker Appre-
ciation Day. Sunday, guests who bring a
Mountain Dew can receive a voucher for
$5 off the $25 all-day-ride wrist band.
Friday's Strawberry Mashed potato
pie eating contest sounds like one of
the "not-to-be-missed" events. Be there
at noon to see it and even earlier to
participate.
Headline entertainment on the


Wish Farms Soundstage is offered
daily at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at an
extra fee of $15-$40 depending on
the performer. There are a few free
grandstand seats but available only

Venice Theatre


collaborates


with Montessori


school


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
"Life is a Highway!" by Venice
Theatre's resident playwright Ron
Myroup, is the theater's latest collabo-
ration with Island Village Montessori
School.
Students in the IVMS/Venice Theatre
afterschool partnership program will
perform the musical at 1 p.m. and
4 p.m. Saturday at the theater. IVMS
Choraliers will perform a musical
program at 12:30 p.m., just before the
first show of the day.
The IVMS partnership with Venice
Theatre is in its ninth year. The year-
long program gives students the
opportunity to hone speaking skills,
"learn to express themselves through
drama," develop social skills and learn
about theater both behind the scene
and on stage when they participate in a
production.
"I am so impressed by the students'
personal growth," said Candace Artim,
actor, and assistant director of the
theater's education and outreach
program. "It's wonderful to see them
progress as actors and individuals."
Artim compared the discipline
needed by actors with that needed by
sports teams. They learn to work as a


team and to think on their feet, she
said.
Jan Pearman is the director of
the IVMS after-school program. In a
release, she commented on the growth
of the program and the results over
the past nine years. At the beginning
students presented short skits.
This year they will present a full-
length musical. Two years ago the
program was expanded to include
more students from the school's south
campus and finally to also include
north campus students. The result is
the chance for 4- and 5-year-olds to
work with elementary and middle
school-age students.
Sandi Davisson is the theater's
director of education and outreach,
which includes several such collabora-
tive school programs and also oversees
the theater's Theatre Technical Appren-
tice Program (TTAP). TTAP graduates
have the skills to become journeymen
in the theater world.
There is a suggested donation of $10
for"Life is a Highway!"Tickets may be
purchased at IVMS, 2001 Pinebrook
Road, Venice, or at the theater begin-
ning one hour before the performance.

'The Columnist' run

extended at Florida

Studio Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The political drama,"The Columnist,"
by David Auburn, has been extended until
April 14 at Florida Studio Theatre.
Based on true events in the life of famed
political columnist Joseph Alsop,"The
Columnist"will continue in the Keating
mainstage at Florida Studio Theatre where
it has been playing to sell-out houses.
Anyone who lived just before/after and/
or through the Kennedy era may have
heard about or read Alsop. He was syndi-
cated in papers all over the country, hob-
nobbed with the people he wrote about
and married to cover a secret that might
have destroyed him in those days. Instead,


it seems his political involvement led to his
fall from favor.
The cast includes Jeff Plunkett as Joe
Alsop, Rachel Moulton as Susan Mary
Alsop, Rob Gomes as Stewart Alsop, Seth
Teegarden as Philip, John Keabler as Andrei,
Marie Claire Roussel as Abigail and Michael
Zlabingeras Halberstam.
"The Columnist" is directed by Kate Alex-
ander, with costumes by Sarah Bertolozzi,
set design by Brian Pratherand lighting by
Richard Chamblin.
The added performances will be at 8 p.m.
April 9-13, at 2 p.m. on April 13 and at
3 p.m. on April 14.
Single tickets are $18-$36. Call the box

Jazz Club of Sarasota presents


Giacomo Gates at the 33rd


annual Sarasota Jazz Festival


PROVIDED BY THE JAZZ CLUB OF SARASOTA
Acclaimed master bebop vocalist
Giacomo Gates will appear on March 7,
at 7:30 p.m., as part of the 33rd annual
Sarasota Jazz Festival, which runs through
March 10.
Gates'bassist, John Lamb, who
performed for more than 10 years with the
Duke Ellington Orchestra, will receive the
Jazz Club's"Satchmo"award for his contri-
butions as an educator and performer in
the world of jazz during the concert. The
concert is at The Players Theatre, 838 N.
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Tickets are $35
general admission; $30 Jazz Club members;
$10 students. For tickets, call The Player's
box office at 941-365-2494. For group
prices or more information about the 33rd
annual Sarasota Jazz Festival, call 941-366-
1552, or visit www.jazzclubsarasota.com.
Gates is considered to be one of the
world's leading practitioners of vocalese,
a challenging form of singing where lyrics
take the place of instrumental melodies.
Heavily steeped in the traditions of the
original vocal improvisers-from Louis
Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald through
their modern counterparts, Betty Carter
and Leon Thomas-Gates also draws
from such bebop-rooted masters as Jon
Hendricks, Babs Gonzales, King Pleasure
and Eddie Jefferson. Like his influences,
Gates has forged his own unique path. A
Downbeat Critics Poll winner in 2012, Gates
has played notable venues and at major
festivals throughout the world. He has
also recorded five acclaimed CDs, winning


Ei niC. March 6-12, 2013


rave reviews from the Wall Street Journal,
Boston Globe and Downbeat magazine.
Gates' music career had a late and
less than conventional start. Prior to his
performing debut in 1990, he spent many
years in the wilderness of Alaska working
at a variety of jobs. Confronted with
sights, sounds and experiences that had
a profound effect upon his being, Gates
found a powerful stimulus to developing
his own artistic expression. That expres-
sion found its voice in the music that had
been a part of his life since childhood.
Gates returned to his native Connecticut
in the late'80s to devote full attention to
his music and become, as one critic has
said, "one of the jazz world's finest living
exemplars of true grit."
Gates also gives back to the art form that
embraced him so late in life, teaching at
Wesleyan and Sacred Heart Universities
and conducting workshops and residencies
throughout the country. He is also known
for the witty and informative banter that
infuses his live performances, making each
one a little lesson in jazz history.
Accompanying Gates will be Sarasota
Jazz Club favorites, Mac Chrupcala on
piano, Patricia Dean on drums, and John
Lamb on bass. "This year's Jazz Festival
offers a lively week of nonstop, top-notch
jazz," says Dave Walrath, president of the
Jazz Club of Sarasota. "We have a stellar
lineup of Grammy-nominated and award-
winning artists participating. The popular
outdoor concert and Jazz Trolley are back
and, this year, we've added the After Glow

e experi- owner Robert Fay. "Now we're ready for
ences in our 2013 season, with nine new shows."
The shows themselves are mystery plays
in which a scene is set up, a "murder"
occurs (of course), and the guests try
to figure out whodunit. And it all

to New Orleans-it's always different," Fay
said. "We write the scripts ourselves."
Fay says that there are always two
shows running at any given time and one
of the shows is usually specific to the time
of year it is.
Theatre on the Murder Mystery Train
is like none you've ever seen. Unlike a
traditional theatre experience where you
are expected to sit quietly while the action
takes place in front of you, in this setting,
the play is totally interactive. The actors
walk down the aisles of the four train cars,
delivering their lines and engaging the
people sitting immediately around them.
The passengers'job is to guess which
one of the play's characters committed the
murder.
"From the passengers'perspective,
it} like playing a game
of Clue," Fay said.
"We have a "super
sleuth" prize in
each car each


night."
And lest you think that it's just about
the play, Fay said that the dinner served
on the Mystery Train is top-notch.
"Our five-course dinner is cooked fresh
on the train, and guests can choose from
chicken, salmon or prime rib for their
entree, he said. "We slow roast our prime
rib all day long. Everyone gets an appe-
tizer, soup, salad or fruit cup, bread and
dessert."
Reservations can be made over the
phone or on the website, and if you live
out of town, you can book a combination
dinner show and hotel package on the
website as well.
All aboard the Murder Mystery Dinner
Train for a unique dinner theatre experi-
ence.

"Neil Diamond Tribute by Peter and Friends"
will be performed at 7 p.m. on March 8 at the
Charlotte County Cultural Center, 2280 Aaron St.,
Port Charlotte. Audiences will enjoy Peter Prior's
rendition of popular Diamond songs including
"Beautiful Noise;'"Love on the Rocks,'"Song
Sung Blue""Sweet Caroline,""Cracklin Rosie;'
"America" and others.
Peter Prior, said,"I'm not an impersonator; I
just love to sing Neil Diamond songs:'
Prior's friends will open the show for the
first 40 minutes. Carolyn Krotzer and Linda
Atkinson, a popular singing duo known as
"Rock'n Rhythm,"will sing Motown and other
well-known artists'songs. Arkansas native and
country singer, Anita Livingston, will sing Patsy
Cline favorites. Comedian Jim 'Limey'Clements
will provide lots of laughs.
Accompanying Prior is the "High Tops" band
that includes guitarist Johnnie Walker, bass
player Jeff Foley, drummer Kim Poser, and
on keyboard is Bob Seip. Rock'n Rhythm and
Livingston will also sing backup for Prior.
Prior's previous four performances at the
Cultural Center were to sold-out audiences.
Proceeds of over $20,000 from those shows
were donated to the Special Olympics.
Prior was a printer for the'Detroit Free Press'
in the 1960s. He always loved to sing, and that
talent helped him to support his family when
the newspaper employees went on strike. When
Prior was singing in a friend's nightclub, an
agent was impressed with Prior's voice and his

ability to connect with the audience. The agent
booked Prior for many gigs in various cities in
the United States and Canada.
Prior then opened with comedy and songs for
famous entertainers such as Frankie Lane, the
Diamonds, and the Drifters at the Metropole
Supper Club in Windsor, Canada, for two years.
"The owner of the Metropole was'Papa Nick"
to me because he took me under his wing and
taught me many ways to improve my perfor-
mances;' Prior said."I left the club when he
died:'
A Las Vegas group, "Tiny Diamond and the
Make Believes;' hired Prior, and the group enter-
tained in many venues throughout the Midwest
and east coast.
Prior then formed his own group, "Peter
Michaels and Revelations;'that performed at
many lounge shows in various venues for 10
years. When lounge shows somewhat disap-
peared from the scene in the early 1980s, Prior
stopped entertaining and worked for a roofing
company in Detroit. He was transferred to Fort
Lauderdale. After retiring, he moved to Port
Charlotte.
Prior was bored with retirement so he worked
at Sam's Club for awhile, but then he met a
friend from Detroit who persuaded him to sing
again. Prior has sung with the "Voices of Char-
lotte" and "The Notables:'
"When I see the smiles on the faces in the
audiences, I know they're enjoying my songs.
And that's a great feeling;' Prior said.
Tickets for the show are $15 each. Call
941-625-4175, ext. 221, www.theculturalcenter.

much energy; they only go two or three
counts between songs. I saw eight of them

HCTM draws

Black Taxi has recently exploded on the

motto is, "We're coming to rock your

second stage. Cover Art, a pop-rock group,
will open on the main stage, followed by
American Made, a five-piece, classic rock
band that has developed a cult following
in Southwest Florida.

Mike Parshall:


'World famous in


Englewood'


LIVE MUSIC G O


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Mike Parshall invites jazz lovers to hear
him sing and play during one of his many
one-man live performances in the SW Florida
area. What makes Parshall (aka Sax On the
Beach) unique is that he records all "backing
tracks" in his Englewood home recording
studio. The results are amazing, and those not
so technically savvy may find it hard to believe
that a full orchestra isn't somewhere, perhaps
hidden in back of the stage, during his show.
Parshall's expertise has made it possible for
him to reproduce"any sound he wants." He's
also an Apple Computer Certified Support
Professional who jokes about being "world
famous in Englewood."Sax On the Beach is
booked every week during the season and has
no desire to venture far from home.
Parshall grew up in Tampa where he
learned to play the alto sax at 8 years old.
His West Shore Elementary School music
teacher, Mr. Rodriguez, told him to take the
mouthpiece home and make a particular
sound, not so easy for an eight year old, but
he did it. After graduating from Robinson
High in Tampa, Parshall"migrated"to
California where he began playing profession-
ally in 1973. According to his website, www.
Saxbeach.com, he toured or performed with
the Flamingos, The Coasters, Chuck Berry, Fats
Domino, and Bandana, to name a few. In the
mid'70s he led a contemporary Christian rock


band New Song and later formed his own
band, The Touch, in Palm Springs, Calif. in the
mid-'80s. In 1995 Parshall returned to Florida
to be near his Dad in Englewood.
Sax On the Beach, the name of Parshall's
act, was given to him by the owner of the
Captain's Club on Englewood Beach where he
played frequently in 1995. According to his
February/March calendar he now performs
at several popular restaurants, not always on
the beach. He's also a talented flutist, singer,
and an expert at playing an instrument called
a "Midi Wind Controller." Of course, he's best
known for his tenor saxophone solos and his
arrangements of songs for just about every
type of audience. For example, during Sunday
brunches at Zydeco Grill, Parshall performs
mellow music. At evening shows and private
parties, he livens things up considerably
by playing music that suits the occasion. A
complete list of songs can be found on his
website. His albums"One Man Band,""For
Crying Out Loud!"and"Sax On the Beach, Still
Alive at the Captain's Club"are also available
forsale.
From March-April, Mike is booked fora
number of private parties for people saying
goodbye to condo friends heading back to
their homes up north. At 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
each Sunday, Sax On the Beach performs at
Zydeco Grille, 8501 Placida Road, Cape Haze.
You can also find him at Howard's Restaurant,
1400 Aqua View Lane, on most Thursday
evenings from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and at
Farlow's on the Water, 2080 S. McCall Road at
6 p.m.-9 p.m. For bookings call him at
941-915-5553.

Shot,"as well as"Love is a Battlefield', "We Belong"and "Invincible." Her husband is Neil
Giraldo, producerand lead guitarist for the band.
One hit and that was it
Mercy, a Florida band, performs periodically at Fishermen's Village and had a 1969
hit with "Love (Can Make You Happy)."There are also well-known classic rock groups
who only charted once in Billboard's top 40, such as The Grateful Dead (with "Touch
of Grey" in 1987) and Rush (with "New World Man" in 1982). Here's a few more to test
your memory:"Teen Angel' (Mark Dinning, 1960),"Pushin'Too Hard"(The Seeds, 1967),
"Smile a Little Smile for Me,"(The Flying Machine, 1969), "Mississippi Queen,"(Moun-
tain, 1970) and"Dead Skunk:'(Loudon Wainwright III, 1973). Also include "Driver's

This Groove,"(The System, 1987) and "What I Am,"(Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians,
1989).

Steps to Success


l e Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.

2 Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.

3 Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


4. Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.

5 Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!

Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

and this deal is no exception.
West led the jack of diamonds
against four hearts. Plan the play.
The fate of the contract hinges on
your play to the first trick. You are in
danger of losing one spade and three
tricks in the minors. To make matters
worse, the opening lead threatens
your only entry to the dummy. How
do you intend to counter this threat?
The key card is dummy's nine of
diamonds. The opening lead marks
West for the ten of diamonds, and
you can make use of this scrap of
information. Play low from dummy
and, if as expected, West wins this
trick with the king, jettison the queen.
Now, when you gain the lead, draw
trumps and then take the marked
finesse for the ten of diamonds.
Barring accidents, you have dug
yourself out of trouble and the heart
game rolls home you can discard a
club loser on the ace of diamonds.

DEAR DR. ROACH: Dr. Roach
Vhy do commercials D Roach


for cholesterol-lowering
medications have a goal
of 100 for bad choles-
terol? I thought it was
180. I heard a guest on
a television show say
that everyone over 40
should be on a station
drug. T.Z.
ANSWER: Let me
answer the second
question first. Not ev-
erybody needs a station
drug, regardless of age.
Statin drugs lower the
risk for a heart attack
in people who already
have blockages in their
heart; many studies
have proven this. For
people without proven
heart disease but with
a high risk of heart
disease, stations also
reduce the risk of heart
attack. However, since
every drug has the pos-
sibility of side effects
and can be expensive,
it is important to use
the medication only for
people who are more
likely to have ben-
efit than a harm. This
includes people with
diabetes, with blockag-
es in the arteries of the
legs and people with
multiple risk factors,
including high blood
pressure, smoking and
a strong family history
of heart disease.
There is clear evi-
dence that some people
with multiple risk
factors and a low HDL
cholesterol (the good
kind think "H for
Healthy") can reduce
their risk for heart at-
tack even with normal
total cholesterol levels.
Only by taking a full
history and exam and
looking at cholesterol
numbers and perhaps
other laboratory data
(such as the C-reactive
protein) can your doc-
tor or other provider
give you the informa-
tion you need to decide
whether to take a
station. Remember also
that taking a station drug
is not the only way to
lower your risk of heart
disease a healthy diet
and regular exercise do
that, too.
If a station is recom-
mended and accepted,
the decision of how low
to push the LDL cho-
lesterol (the bad kind
- think "L for Lousy")
is less controversial,
although there still is
some disagreement.
The standard recom-
mendation is an LDL
level below 100, with
less than 70 optional

Roach at

for people at high
risk. However, some of
my colleagues who I
respect use the highest
tolerated dose, no mat-
ter what the LDL is, in
order to give the most
benefit.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
My son is 57 and takes
a lot of prescription
medicine. Among them
are Prozac and a medi-
cine for rheumatoid
arthritis, which I'm told
is a mild cancer drug.
My son thinks drinking
alcohol does not affect
any of the medicines
he takes and doesn't
counteract what the
medicine is supposed
to do. I told him it does,
but he won't pay atten-
tion to me. F.S.
ANSWER: The greater
the number of medica-
tions, the higher the
likelihood that there
will be a significant
interaction with each
other, with alcohol or
even with food. But
just to look at the two
you mentioned, Prozac
certainly interacts with
alcohol, making the
alcohol effect more
intense: He will be
more affected by the
same amount of alcohol
while on Prozac. The
second medication
could be methotrex-
ate (just a guess), and
methotrexate can
cause damage to the
liver, and its toxicity
is likely much worse
with alcohol. I wouldn't
recommend any alcohol
for someone on Prozac
and methotrexate, and
that doesn't even take
into consideration
other medications he
might be on.

Dr. Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column whenever
possible. Readers may

WITH A LITTLE
HELP FROM YOOR
PURR GURU.


Dear Heloise: My mom
has two different recipes
for pumpkin roll. One
of the recipes calls for 1
teaspoon baking soda,
and the other calls for 1
teaspoon baking powder.
What is the difference? -
Julie P., via email
There definitely is a big,
big difference! Both are
used in baking to help
dough rise or expand, but
they do it differently and
cannot be substituted for
each other.
Baking soda is made of
pure, 100 percent sodium
bicarbonate. When mixed
with an acid (for example,
cream of tartar) and some
moisture, it causes a
reaction that makes little
bubbles, which helps the
dough get puffy and light.
Baking powder is
baking soda with one or
more acidic ingredients
included. Just by adding
a liquid, the reaction
occurs. It usually is added
to a recipe where there is
no acidic ingredient.
Hope this helps, and
happy baking! Heloise
No-mess burrito
Dear Heloise: I'm
writing to share a hint for
serving messy burritos
to children. I hate food
items like these (my kids
are 6 and 2 years old).
Inevitably, the "inside" of
the burrito always ends
up on their plates after
the first bite or two. One
night, I even held the
bottom of my daughter's
burrito closed for her


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman


Hints from Heloise

while she was eating.
What a pain.
Since then, I've discov-
ered a solution: chip clips!
When I served burritos, I
used a clean chip clip to
clamp the bottom of the
burrito shut, preventing
the insides from falling
out. It worked like a
charm and definitely will
be a trick I use again in
the future. Allison W. in
Milwaukee

Warm cup
Dear Heloise: A reader
wrote about how to pre-
warm a coffee cup to keep
the coffee hotter (Heloise
here: The reader poured
hot coffee into a cold
cup, then back into the
coffeepot before refilling
the cup with coffee to
drink). Another hint is to
put your empty cup in
the microwave for 20-25
seconds before pouring
coffee, tea or soup into it.
So easy and effective. -
Lotte in Arkansas
We tested this at
Heloise Central, and
indeed, it warms the
cup. Just be sure the
cup is microwave-safe.

Adopted children are product "A'ARD FILLMORE By Bruce

of two different kinds of love I A,4W


DEAR ABBY: While
cleaning out my attic
yesterday, I found a letter
that my daughter wrote
to you a few years ago
when she was 13. She was
responding to a poem
that had appeared in your
column, "Legacy of an
Adopted Child."
She was going through
a very trying time and was
being bullied because she
was adopted and looked
very different from her
parents.
My daughter is grown
now and is a delightful,
successful young woman.
That poem helped her
greatly. Can you reprint
it for others? PROUD
MOM IN GREENVILLE,
S.C.
DEAR PROUD MOM:
With pleasure. The poem
is part of my "Keepers"
booklet.

Legacy of an
adopted child
(Author Unknown)
Once there were two
women
Who never knew each
other.
One you do not
remember,
The other you call
mother.
Two different lives
Shaped to make yours
one.
One became your guid-
ing star,
The other became your
sun.
The first gave you life
And the second taught
you to live it.
The first gave you a
need for love
And the second was
there to give it.
One gave you a
nationality,
The other gave you a
name.
One gave you a seed of
talent,
The other gave you an
aim.
One gave you emotions,
The other calmed your
fears.
One saw your first
sweet smile,
The other dried your
tears.
One gave you up -
It was all that she could
do.
The other prayed for


Dear Abby

a child
And God led her
straight to you.
And now you ask me
Through your tears,
The age-old question
Through the years:
Heredity or
environment
Which are you the
product of?
Neither, my darling
- neither,
Just two different kinds
of love.

This poem is part of a
collection of poems and
essays that readers have
repeatedly asked to be
re-run because they hold
special meaning for them.
Some of the items had
been saved and re-read
so many times that
they had fallen apart.

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


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19).Your people will see you
the way they always have, regardless of what new
wisdom you bring to the picture. If you want to be
properly recognized, you'll have to venture out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Waiting until you are
stirred to do something isn't advised. Get in motion,
and the practical aspects will soon come together to
give you that inspired feeling.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).While tuning in to the
people around you and all the humor, interest and
beauty that's going on in your surroundings right
oon


now, you'll get the sneaking suspicion that these are
the good times.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).You may find that you're
acting on less ofa thought process and more of a
gut feeling. People will respect your decisions even
if you can't back them up in rational terms.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You and a friend will occupy
the same moment and have a vastly different
experience of it. Find out what's going on with this
person.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your timing is sublime,


in time periods over which you have no control, i.e.,
"then." Instead of thinking about where you were or
where you'll be, notice where you are.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your active imagination
will be a delight to behold. Even those who can't
relate to your creativity can at least appreciate that
you bring a special something to the moment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In order to step through
the porthole of intuition, you have to leave your
baggage at the door. Any attachment you have to
yourstoryof the past orthe future will only cloud


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).Whateveryou are
feeling, it is perfectly acceptable. Tell yourself this,
even though you may not even be aware ofwhat
you're feeling.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).You are decisive, but
not closed-minded.There's a big difference. Choos-
ing is movement. Someone who is already moving
can just as easily move a different way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).Since Mercury went
retrograde, it hasn't been as easy for you. At times
like this, words are inferior indicators of all you're


largely because you're not getting too wrapped up yourvision, learning through silent observation.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It's a fine time to move
your professional life into new territory. Mention
your interests, volunteer to help, or turn in an ap-
plication.Yourstrong intention will clear the way.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(March 6). Don't waste energy
being too practical orthinking small. Make magical
requests now while so much is working in your
favor.You'll labor for free this month and then get
paid handsomely for easy-peasy work in April.
Projects and relationships reach a turning point in
May. Invest in you. Leo and Libra people adore you.
Your lucky numbers are: 4,9,39,11 and 7.
