New life Circus Arena gets reprieve


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Under a new deal struck this
week, city leaders agreed not
to demolish the dilapidated
Circus Arena for now.
Instead, the city manager
unveiled a plan for a partial
demolition, removing the
Arena's outer sheathing, asbes-
tos and lead paint, a process

code compliance for awhile.

said City Manager Ed Lavallee,
"is improve the value of the
property, remove an obstacle
that the Circus Arts Foundation
was not able to do on their
own, and also preserve the steel
framing so council and the
public has an opportunity to
consider the future use of the
facility without demolishing it.
"It still allows council to
decide in the future how to use
that property."
It's a step that would have
had to be taken anyway,


said Council Member Dave
Sherman, even if full demolition
is decided upon down the road.
Last month, the city building
official deemed the building
dangerous and gave the city 60
days to come up with a plan to
either rehabilitate the arena or
demolish it. On Tuesday, that
plan was unveiled.
A number of City Council
members said they were con-
cerned the city could be setting

A Ugandan orphan cries as she sings the praise of Jesus Christ to a packed house at the First Baptist Church in
Venice last Friday night during a performance of the Watoto Children's Choir. Some of the performers spoke
about the injustices they faced in their countries and could not hold back their tears. They then spoke of
finding solace in God. Their stories, along with their performances, earned them a long, standing ovation. For
a complete story about the choir, see the frontpage of the Our Town section in this newspaper.



Mote: More turtles, fewer dollars


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Funding cuts at Mote
Marine Laboratory and
increased sea turtle nesting
will lead to some changes in
the sea turtle nest monitoring
program.
"We are changing the way
we monitor nests because
of the increase in nesting in
this area," Mote spokesman
Nadine Slimak said Tuesday.
"It will be more of an indexing
system, the way they do it on
the East Coast.
"We still will be patrolling
and still looking for crawls but
won't mark and stake every
nest. It will be a scientifically
based sampling."
Sarasota County's total of
nearly 4,700 sea turtle nests
during the 2012 season was
nearly double that of the 2,700
nests along Lee and Charlotte
county beaches combined,
according to figures at the
website of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation

City gives gays



new legal rights


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Domestic partners will have
new legal rights under a city
law given initial approval this
week.
The new law is similar to the
city of Sarasota law.
The intent of the gay rights

... for lack of a system that
establishes recognition of such
partnerships."
According to the ordinance,
the city "believes a domestic
partnership registry will be
attractive to companies that
value diversity and can as-
sist the city in its economic
development by attracting
companies to locate and make
capital investment in the city"
and promote its reputation as a
diverse community.
The ordinance legally recog-
nizes domestic partnerships

years of age declare by affidavit:

Slim pickings for jury


in Venice murder trial


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
Despite hours of question-
ing, attorneys have picked only
39 potential juror candidates
suitable to serve during an
anticipated three-week double
murder trial involving two
Venice victims.
By the end of the day
Tuesday, about 200 candi-
dates had been interviewed,
but few said they could hon-
estly weigh the two options
in the penalty phase of the
trial either life in prison
without parole or the death
penalty if accused killer John
Allen Lee is found guilty.
Twelfth Circuit Judge Peter
Dubensky ordered more juror
candidates to be interviewed
today, Wednesday, March 13,
at the Sarasota County
Courthouse. He hopes to have
a 13-member jury with three
alternates seated by Thursday.
Candidates who made the
first cut will be asked more
intense questions today or


Thursday, and potentially will
be eliminated.

decapitated.
The state is seeking the
death penalty in the case.
Pointing at Lee, Assistant
State Attorney Karen
Fraivillig asked a potential
juror if she could sentence
him to death if she believed
he was guilty.
Lee's attorney, Carolyn
Schlemmer, objected each
time to Fraivillig's hand
gesture; the judge overruled
it each time. Schlemmer
then asked candidates if they
could consider mitigating
circumstances from Lee's life,

Plan emerges to buy out airport obligations


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Creative financing may
get the city of Venice
out of a financial pickle,
keep itself in the good
graces of the Federal
Aviation Administration,
and avoid a potentially
expensive lawsuit.
City leaders on
Tuesday announced
taxpayer money from the
city's Utilities Enterprise
Fund will be used to pur-
chase Federal Aviation
Administration "obliga-
tions" valued at more
than $2 million on two
high end properties -
Sharky's Restaurant and
The Senior Friendship
Centers ending a
longstanding dispute
with the FAA.
The FAA is antici-
pated to sign off on the
proposal.
When the city pur-
chased the Venice Army


Air Base which en-
compassed most of the
city from the govern-
ment under the Surplus
Property Act of 1944, the
city agreed to, among
other things, lease
airport property at fair
market value to help the
local municipal airport
remain self-sufficient.
Previous audits found
the city was leasing the
property for far less, so
the city proposed a way
out purchase the FAA's
obligations.
"It's been a long
time coming," Council
Member Kit McKeon
said. "This resolves what
is basically the final issue
with the FAA over the
years."
Council members,
who endorsed the plan
unanimously, called it a
win-win.
"The financing of this
is very, very creative,"
Council Member Bob

Daniels said. "A look at
the revenue (stream)
means we're probably
looking at a six-year
payback."
City Manager Ed
Lavallee gave credit to
Finance Director Jeff
Snyder and Utilities
Director Len Bramble
for coming up with a
funding plan that would,
over time, help out the
utilities department,
which owes the city
millions, and keep from
going back to taxpayers
via referendum or other
bonding.
"Funds for this
purchase can be taken
from payments owed
to the city by the Utility
Enterprise Fund,"
Lavallee said in a memo
to city council dated
March 5.
"The Utility Fund's
current debt to the


city's General Fund
approximates $3.9 mil-
lion. The fund has
sufficient reserves to
pay the $2.225 million
needed to buy-out the
FAA interest in the two
parcels. The payments
will be deposited into the
Airport Enterprise Fund
in exchange for release
of the FAA's interest in
the two cited properties,"
Lavallee said.
The city recently ob-
tained property apprais-
als for both sites. Sharky's
was valued at $2.2 mil-
lion. That's strictly the
property value; it does
not include the value of
the business, equipment
or any recent renovations
and the ongoing expan-
sion. Friendship Center
was appraised at $25,000.
The FAA successfully
sued the city for
"diversion of revenue" for


underpaying the Airport
Enterprise Fund by
leasing the Lake Venice
Golf Club property, also
former airport property,
less than fair market
value. The lease dated
back to 1999.
When the city stepped
up its campaign to
downgrade the airport
beginning in 2007, it
drew new attention to
airport leases. An audit
was conducted in 2010


by the U.S. Department
of Transportation's
Office of the Inspector
General, unveiling
more undervalued leas-
es. Sharky's Restaurant,
however, has a longterm
lease, and upping its
rent without the leasee's
consent could have
resulted in a breach-of-
contract claim against
the city.

The future of Warm Mineral Springs...

An Open Letter
To The City of North Port & The Sarasota County Commissions;

We Can Help.
Dear Commissioners:
They say, "time heals all wounds." Often, when we feel pressured into time-sensitive decisions, outcomes suffer.
The City and County are faced with a rapidly approaching date that could leave Warm Mineral Springs without
experienced, proven management and in response to this, some commissioners feel compelled to consider less than
desirable options... including the possibility of selling or even closing Warm Mineral Springs.
Wie sfay, "Please don't."
Closing Warm Mineral Springs would mean terminating 44 hard-working employees.
Closing Warm Mineral Springs would remove a $700,000 annual payroll from the community.
Closing Warm Mineral Springs would deny access to the hundreds of loyal "locals" who moved here for the therapeutic
benefits of the water.
Closing Warm Mineral Springs would destroy the momentum built through the responsible
and careful management of the past four years.
A Simple Solution:
Do Nothing. Don't sell...don't buy...don't close. Take your time. Make careful, well considered decisions.
Think about where Warm Mineral Springs was 4 years ago...where it is today...and where it's headed.
Think about those 44 families.., and think about the image of your community.
We can help.
We will agree to remain in place for whatever time it takes the City & County to resolve their differences a few more
months or a few more years, so you can take the time to find common ground to do what's best for all concerned.
We will continue to protect and preserve the springs, just as we have for four years.
We will continue to grow the business in a careful and responsible way...just as we have for four years.
We will continue our pursuit of becoming America's Natural Wellness Destination, just as we have for four years.
We will gladly partner with the City and County to share the revenues generated by...
America's Number One Mineral Spring.

Sincerely,
Warm Mineral Springs Resort & Day Spa, LLC

Tomatillo's Fresh Mex getting ready to open in Venice


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

With a career that
began as a busboy at
the Ramada, then had
him working around the
country developing fast
food restaurants, Robert
Cross returns to Venice to
manage the launch of a
new Mexican drive-thru
or dine-in restaurant.
Opening late March or
early April, to be deter-
mined by the intensive
training of new employ-
ees, is Tomatillo's Fresh
Mex on Commercial
Court near McDonald's
at the Jacaranda 1-75
interchange.
"When you walk in the
door, you are going to be
blown away," Cross said.
"Our focus is putting to-
gether a beautiful place,
terrific food and recipes,
served by friendly
employees."
During the next two
weeks, he is hiring 25
people who will operate


the restaurant from
6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily,
serving a typical Mexican
food breakfast menu
followed by a lunch and
dinner menu.
No expense has been
spared to make it a
nice, clean place where
customers can get a
regular burrito or 'Mex it
Up' by putting just about
anything they want into
a salad bowl or on a
burrito. With an order
pick-up service and no
waitresses, Cross insists
it will be a lot more full
service than a fast food
restaurant.
The kitchen is open
and visible to customers,
who will watch the food
make-up line assembling
orders. Tomatillo's seats
30 people inside and
many more outside
on the patio under the
awning enjoying the
Spanish cuisine.
Tomatillo's owner,
Tim Paranzino, owns
Roadside Rib Shack in


Sarasota. A year ago at
Casey Key wharf, he
watched Cross feeding
fish to an injured peli-
can. Becoming friends
and learning of Cross's
restaurant experience,
they talked of this
project, and the concept
developed.
"Paranzino put the
money where our dreams
are," said Cross, who was
in Augusta opening some
Hardee's restaurants
for a buddy while the
former ice cream cafO
was renovated to open as
Tomatillo's.
Following his start in
Venice, Cross gained
experience in fast food
restaurants, owning two
Buffalo Bob's Mexican
Food and two Kissin'
Cousins restaurants.
Until returning to
open Tomatillo's, he
worked with Wendy's,
then became director of
operations for Hardee's
and Waffle House but has
always maintained his

Cross, who will soon open the new Tomatillo's Mexican drive-in on Commercial Court near McDon-
ald's at the Jacaranda 1-75 interchange.


Venice home.
"The owner has spared
no expense in his vision
and has followed through
to make it unbelievable,"
Cross said. "I think we


are the right place at the
right time for Venice, and
we will be giving back to
the community as much
as we take."
Seen as a cut above


average drive-thru
restaurants, Cross
sees opportunities
for Tomatillo's having
the blessing of a huge
franchise opportunity.


Where everyone knows your name The Hair Spot


It is the small com-
fortable boutique
salon where customers
recognize one another,
according to owners Tim
and Hope Faust, who are
operating The Hair Spot
on 530 U.S. 41 Bypass
South near Mi Pueblo
Ristaurante in Brickyard
Plaza.
Specializing in color-
ing, highlighting, perms,
cutting and styling for
women and men, there
are three stations with
one station for pedicures,
manicures and shellac
nails. It is an organic
salon. They feature all-
nutrient hair colors,
shampoos, conditioners
and additional hair
products.
From Winston-Salem,
N.C., Faust has a
Business Management


degree from the
University of North
Carolina. As a U.S.
Airways employee for 12
years, he worked in cus-
tomer service, freight and
ticketing before moving
to Dallas, where he spent
22 years working in the
telecom industry for the
federal government, for
the military and for Perot
telecom systems.
Moving to Naples
in 2005 and then to
Englewood in 2007, he
continued managing
telecom systems' na-
tional accounts around
the country. Opening the
YaYa Hair Hut salon in
Port Charlotte, he then
decided to expand to
Venice.
Opening hours are
Tuesday to Fridays,
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and
Saturday mornings. Call
941-497-7604.

Featured on TV
Chip Wade, host of
Elbow Room on the
Home and Garden televi-
sion channel, is featuring
a custom-designed
counterbalance on his


program in the spring.
It follows their meeting
at the CounterBalance
Corporation booth
during the 2012
International
Woodworking and
Furniture Fair, said
Lindsey Thiessen, public
relations manager.
CounterBalance
of North Venice is an
original equipment
manufacturer of modular
torsion spring systems
used to lift lids, covers,
hatches, countertops
and electro-mechanical
equipment. Commercial
applications include
restaurants, hotels and
military vehicles.

Find Your
Pot of Gold
Downtown island
stores on the avenues
are holding their Annual
Sidewalk Sale on Friday
and Saturday, March 15
and 16, from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. The theme is
"Find Your Pot of Gold in
Venice," said organizer
Kathy Crissman of Dick's
Shoes. All members of
Venice MainStreet Inc.,


and other stores will be
participating, showcas-
ing new lines. Many will
have table and clothes
racks displays along the
sidewalks.

Second Award
All at HarborChase of
Venice, 950 Pinebrook
Road, are sharing the
excitement for the
second time it has
been rated in the top
10 percent of Nursing
Homes by U.S. News &
World Report, confirmed
Melinda Mudge, director
of Community Relations.
The magazine reports
this for-profit corpora-
tion has 45 beds to
provide Medicare and
Medicaid services. It is
one of the 20 percent of
all nursing homes in the
state earning a 5-star rat-
ing. Call 941-484-8801.

Chamber Benefits
If you are in business
in this area, how can
you afford to not be
a Chamber member,
asks Donna Pirozzi, the
membership director of


the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce. Until
March 20, they are offer-
ing $1,700.45 savings and
incentives on the an-
nual membership, which
starts from only $245.

listing in the "Chamber
New Member" published
in the Venice Gondolier
Sun, other newspapers
and on radio; discounts
on promotions and ad-
mission to their Business
after Five events. Call
Pirozzi at 941-488-2236.

Free Wi-fi Coming
Astute readers driving
into downtown on the
Venice Avenue Bridge
may be wondering why
a white antenna has
recently been fitted to
the top of Allen Plaza at
101 West Venice Avenue.
It is the new fast and free
wi-fi service coming to
the downtown shopping
district on the island.
Tom Trammell of
Trammell Technologies
in Venice is assembling
all the equipment for
launching the project
this summer in readiness


for next season.
"It will allow access by
every user of the Internet
on cell and smartphones,
iPads, laptops and
computers," Trammell
said. "Recipients may
pick it up while we con-
tinue testing occasionally
while awaiting additional
equipment."

Correction
In the recent busi-
ness report on how two
housewives, Fluvial
Parana and Erin Tackett,
were creating a unique
business renting out
vintage furniture, we
got the business name
wrong. The name is
ELLA'S Vintage Rentals,
located atWarehouse 11,
779 U.S. 41 Bypass South.

Nokomis Publix will re-open in December after major rebuild


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

For shoppers expecting
big inventory markdowns
at the Publix store in
Nokomis Village Shoppes
prior to closure, there is
bad news. All the inven-
tory will be collected and
sold by other local Publix
stores.
Following the closing
of the story at 9 p.m. on
Saturday, March 30, fenc-
ing will be erected around
the store as demolition is
scheduled to start imme-
diately following Easter.
The new replacement
store will be larger, as the
contractor is taking part
of the adjoining former
video store to incorporate


it in the new build.
"Publix's new store
will be a typical,
45,000-square-foot
design, and the rebuild is
scheduled to be com-
pleted for a re-opening
in mid-December," said
Josh Beyer, vice president
of Development for the
Florida & Gulf Coast
Market. "Existing ten-
ants, including Anthony's
ladies apparel, Village
Pharmacy, Ophelia's Pasta
restaurant and Saltwater
Caf6 will remain open
while the new store is
under construction."
Redevelopment of
the 143,697-square-
foot center at 1065
North Tamiami Trail,
Nokomis, will include


improvements to the
entire property, from
landscaping to building
facade upgrades.
The center was built
in four parcels, three
in 1980, totaling 51,914
square feet and an
addition in 1985 of
48,731 feet, making a
total of 100,645 square
feet. The Saltwater CafO
outparcel of 7,200 square
feet was added in 1981,
followed by a second,
5,560-square-foot out-
parcel housing Subway
and a nail salon in 2002.
At the rear of Publix is
an old miniature indoor
mall, which had 20-plus
tenants and an internal
ice rink. Beyer said those
were not involved in the


rebuild at this stage.
Sembler Company of
St. Petersburg managed
the whole 12.5-acre
property for four years
until October of 2011,
when they purchased it
for $9.2 million.
"It's a high-traffic
store but it just needs
a facelift. Such is the
life cycle of retail," said
Steve Althoff, senior vice
president of Leasing and
Property Management.
Sembler has developed
more than 330 projects
totaling 27 million
square feet and currently
leases and manages over
12.5 million square feet.
"During the rebuild
of what will be a vibrant
and attractive shopping

Riptide warning during Spring Break


STAFF REPORT

The Florida Division of
Emergency Management
issued a warning this
week of an elevated
danger of riptides and
wildfires during Spring
Break.



TURTLES

34,000 nests in Brevard
County and slightly more
than 22,000 nests in Palm
Beach County.
According to Slimak,
scientists have used
a scientifically based
sampling on that coast
for several years. East
Coast beaches had ap-
proximately eight times
as many nests in 2012,
according to the Fish and
Wildlife website.
"We don't know what
the formula will be
yet," she said. "There
are protocols for higher
density beaches. We will
check with the state to


Onshore winds and 3-
to 5-foot breaking waves
will generate a high risk
of rip currents along all
Atlantic Coast beaches
from Nassau through
Miami-Dade County.
An elevated risk of rip
currents is expected to


make sure our protocols
are in line."
The cuts will impact
seasonal hires for
the program at Mote,
which has historically
hired several marine
biology students and
other interns during the
May 1-Oct. 31 season.
They compile facts and
figures based on counts
provided by volunteers
who patrol area beaches
daily.
Mote will only hire as
many seasonal techni-
cians as are required un-
der rules of the Fish and
Wildlife Commission,
Slimak said.
"We are not recruit-
ing any new volunteers
this year," Slimak said.

every nest and false

Additional training will
be offered to volunteers
interested in learning
more, she added.
Members of Coastal
Club patrol beaches
from Caspersen
Beach in Venice
down to Manasota

also monitor beaches in

ties. Coastal totals also
were up significantly,
according to charts at its
website.
In addition to keeping
track of nests, turtle pa-
trollers also watch out for


Meteorologist Brad
Schaaf said.
A rip current is a nar-
row, powerful current of
water that runs perpen-
dicular to the beach, out
into the ocean.
Schaaf offered the
following tips:


signs of predation and
cage or otherwise cover
nests in areas frequented
by coyotes, raccoons and
other natural predators.
Touching a nest or
any sea turtle is against
federal and state laws.
Nesting will begin about
May 1, and the first
hatchlings will emerge
50 to 60 days later,
depending on the sand
temperature. Warmer
send will result in earlier
hatching and also in
more females.
Because lights along
the beach can disorient
nesting and hatching
sea turtles, coastal cities
such as Venice have
lighting ordinances that
require the shielding of


Stay at least 100 feet
away from piers and jet-
ties. Permanent rip cur-
rents often exist along-
side these structures.
Pay especially close
attention to children and
persons who are elderly
when at the beach. Even


any lights that would
shine directly on the
beach. Interior lights
are to be shielded by
draperies or shutters
during sea turtle nesting
season.
Fines can be imposed
although that has not
occurred in Venice so
far because of resident

action can cause loss of
footing.
If you're caught in
a rip tide, don't swim
against it. Instead, swim
out of the current in a
direction following the
shoreline.

OUR VIEW


Positive steps being taken in fixing River Road


he single number that got every-
one's attention at the joint meet-
ing last week of the Charlotte and
Sarasota county commissions was "15."
That's the number of years area resi-
dents might have to wait before seeing
substantial action on making River
Road a proper four-lane roadway from
Englewood to Interstate 75.
In fact, "beyond 15 years," in the
estimation of Sarasota County Public
Works Direction Jim Harriot.
So pencil it in for the year 2028, but
be sure to use a pencil. With an eraser.
Just in case.
What was most heartening about
last week's joint commission meet-
ing was the strength of the Charlotte
contingent's response to Harriot's
estimate.
"That timetable is unacceptable,"
newly elected Commissioner Ken


Doherty said.
Newly elected Commissioner Bill
Truex of Englewood called the cur-
rent road "a treacherous situation."
He added, "I don't think we've done
enough. ... My stance is we've got to
work with you guys in any way we
can." The others agreed.
The two boards last week voted
unanimously to work together on
a solution, which most likely will
include federal funding, considering
the huge price tag. The vote seemed
less pro-forma than usual: Charlotte's
commissioners appear to be genu-
inely committed.
That's what it will take to get the job
done before 2028: a serious, commit-
ted joint effort.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s,
both counties cooperated on con-
struction of the four-lane Winchester


Boulevard, which takes motorists
from State Road 776 (east ofWalMart)
to River Road. Sarasota County built
the road on its right of way; Charlotte
funded it through surtaxes.
After that, a special ad hoc task
force was formed to work on the fund-
ing question. Rep. Vern Buchanan,
R-Longboat Key, got involved, but
wasn't able to steer appropriations our
way. The Venice Bypass widening was
given higher priority by the organiza-
tion responsible for regional highway
funding in Sarasota and Manatee
counties.
So the proper Englewood interstate
connector is 15 years out, maybe.
Sarasota County has split the
project into chunks. Overall costs run
close to $60 million. Estimates say it
could take $9.5 million to widen River
Road from U.S. 41 to Center Road in


Venice, $3.9 million for the road from
Center Road to 1-75, $9.6 million from
Pine Street to Winchester Boulevard
and $37.3 million to four-lane River
Road fromWinchester to U.S. 41.
Right now, the good news is the
$8.7 million River Road-U.S. 41
intersection upgrade is under way.
Sarasota also has awarded a contract
for the badly needed resurfacing of
River Road for the 6.7-mile stretch
between U.S. 41 and Pine Street. At
least that will make the trip a little less
dangerous.
The long-term solution will take
concentration and effort, good
planning and a lot of money. On the
Sarasota County side of the line, this
tends to sound like a broken record.
With real commitment from Charlotte
County, though, it could be resusci-
tated. Only 10 years? It's possible.


Why can't help be


given to our seniors?

My editor, Ron Dupont,
relayed a real life event as
he shopped at a grocery
store this weekend. An older
couple was deciding between
purchasing an orange or an
apple on their limited food
budget.
Later during their shop-
ping, he ran across the couple
again, and this time they were
loudly discussing the amount
of money they had left to buy
food. From what Ron could
gather, the amount was only
$12.
There is more to the story,
but I write today wondering
how this couple ended up in
this situation.
As I thought more, it oc-
curred to me that this couple
could have had major contri-
butions to society back in the
day. Could one or both have
been a part of something so
big in their era that it had and
will continue to have lasting
effects on humanity?
Could it be that they served
our country proudly in a
branch of the military and
received medals for bravery?
Perhaps one or both were
educators and taught the
young glowing faces the
values of education that is
passed onto to their children
today?
These folks could have been
a part of thousands of differ-
ent positive scenarios in their
lifetime. Am I to believe that
in the final years this is their
reward?
Something is wrong when
the people that played a
major role in getting us where


we are today have to decide
on whether they can afford
to purchase an apple or an
orange and then have only $12
left to get the rest of their food
needs.
The system simply does
not provide enough for the
elderly.
In a perfect world, there
should be a subsidy given to
grocers for those who reach
a certain age. The groceries
should be predetermined and
the people just pick it up. We
have many nutritional studies
that would make this task easy
for the grocer.
If by chance they wanted
more, then they could pur-
chase apples and oranges and
whatever they wanted when
arriving at the store.
In a perfect world, our
elderly would be respected at
all costs, and the young would
go out of their way to make
sure that all the comforts pos-
sible would be given to those
who toiled so hard to make our
world easier.
But, alas, this old world isn't
so perfect, and I snapped out
of the moment realizing that
at some point, there has to
be change. If we can develop
weapons that can destroy
a planet, if we can send a
spacecraft from here to Mars
and if we can send an email
message from Venice to Japan
in seconds, surely the brightest
and best minds on our planet
can find a way to support, care
for and feed the elderly.
I have to think that as a
country, we are working on
solutions to this problem. After
all, I hear politicians speak on
this subject every couple of
years or so, promising relief for
those who suffer.
What happens to those
promises is beyond me. Surely
one day, we will elect someone
who will create change and
who will make a difference for
our elderly folks who need a
hand.
That would be a good place
to start a perfect world.

City should save arena.
Should the city be responsible
for saving the Circus Arena?
Absolutely yes. It's been here
forever and it's been under
their control for the past 10
years. It's a shame that it has
been allowed to disintegrate
the way it has. It's a treasure
that we need to preserve.
What about police? Not that
I condone texting and driv-
ing, but what's the difference
between driving and texting
and the police officers typing
on their laptops? I don't hear
a movement to outlaw that.
Food for thought.
No White House tours. As
of March 9, public tours of the
White House have been canceled
due to the sequester. What type
of leader would discontinue pub-
lic tours of the people's house?
If you have not been programed
by President Obama's rhetoric,
please call the White House
comment line at 202-456-1111
to place your concerns about the
White House tours.
Missed name. It seems that
Congressman Darrell Issa's
last name slipped through
the cracks in a recent letter to
the editor. As chairman of the
House Oversight Committee, his
name should be well known.
Why? I'm hard pressed to
understand why the Gondolier
allows letters such as Ann
Graff's from Venice to be
published, week in and week
out. It's just absurd.
Butts. Thanks for cleaning
up the beach. I'll bet there's
a lot of cigarette butts in all
those trash bags.
Wrong places. I was look-
ing for the time change in
the March 9 edition of your
weekend Gondolier, and I finally
found it. One was in the comic
strips and one was in Dear Abby.
Pinebrook Park. This is
from a Let'em Have It titled
Pro Challenger. This person
stated that a petition had been
circulated against building
Challenger baseball fields in
Pinebrook Park. The petition
is not against building the
baseball fields. It is a petition to
rezone Pinebrook Park to OUC,
which stands for Open Use


Let 'em


Have It


Conservation. If Pinebrook Park
is rezoned OUC, nothing can be
built there, and it will remain
a serene place to walk trails
and enjoy wildlife. The people
who sign the petition ask that
Pinebrook remain a park as
it has been for more than 30
years. ManyVenice residents
use this park and don't want it
destroyed. I'm sure no one in
Venice is against Challenger
baseball. Everyone would want
the disabled children to have a
field. Challenger has been of-
fered many places to build their
field. These places are much
better suited for baseball fields
than Pinebrook Park.
Separation. This is in refer-
ence to comments about the
Bible Marathon. What are you
afraid of? Separation of church
and state has yielded our
perfect world of plenty we live
in now. Everybody but you is
happy. Things couldn't be bet-
ter with God out of our lives.
How on Earth could things get
any better?
Why not bridges? What's
this? Because of federal spend-
ing cut backs, airport control
towers may be shut down,
endangering planes. What's
the word on shutting down the
bridge operations along the
Intracoastal? This would not
endanger any lives. Anyone


know about this?
Thank you. This is about your
edition of March 9-10. I was very
impressed with the articles you
wrote on the Immokolee work-
ers. It was very well done. Thank
you for the articles.
Challenger. For years back
up north, I was on the Special
Olympics committee, picked
as a volunteer for these. If you
could have seen the faces on
these kids as they marched
onto the field to be greeted
by 2,000 spectators standing,
clapping their hands. They
felt like they were 10 feet
tall. I think that if the people
of Pinebrook South had the
opportunity to witness these
kids, they might make changes
about the Challenger sports
complex and not complain.
Bible reading OK. To add
to the discussion on the Bible
reading at the Gazebo, I have
no problem with people doing
that. I think it's a nice commu-
nity event. It is not promoting
a particular denomination or
even a particular religion. The
Bible is great world literature. It
is a very interesting story. In fact,
there is a special going on now
on the History Channel about
the Bible, and I understand they
have something like 30 million
viewers at the first episode. So,
there is a great interest in the
Bible and a great community
event to have it read for a few
days in downtown Venice. I wish
the person who complained
considered that this is certainly
nothing that would cause any
harm to anyone.

Sheriff targets underage drinking during Spring Break

A person, for example,
would now be allowed to

some hospitals reserve

Like Sarasota's, the
Venice ordinance con-

from drugs, alcohol and

Unlike Sarasota's law,
Venice's contains a three-

"The sunset allows
it to come back to

Jeanette Gates. "This
council went around
and around on the
issue. We really wanted
it to be in. It gives us an
opportunity to see how
it operates."

freedom, can lead to
poor decision making
and in turn, to emer-
gency medical situations
such as overdoses and
alcohol-related injuries,"
said Sheriff's Office
Spokesperson Wendy
Rose, in a press release


Supporter Ken Shelin
thanked the council for
adopting such "an excel-
lent bill." Nine million
people are registered
around the state, he said.
The ordinance was
necessary, Shelin said,
to make sure hospitals,
funeral homes and oth-
ers allow loved ones to
participate in decisions.
"You use that (card)
to present to a medical
facility or undertaker
facility to take advantage
of those rights if they say,

also result in civil cita-
tions or criminal charges
that put an end to spring
break fun and potentially
impact the student's
future."
In addition to enhanced
enforcement efforts,
Sheriff Tom Knight


'we don't have to listen to
you' or 'we don't under-
stand it'," Shelin said.
"I know there are
going to be some
people, rare though
it may be, who don't
want to comply. I had
a power-of-attorney

aunt and my partner. I
was doing her taxes ...
and a medical surgical
center refused to honor
a power-of-attorney
for my partner," Shelin
said.


partnered with Clear
Channel Radio to air a
public service announce-
ment on two of its local
stations, 105.9WTZB and
106.5 WCTQ, reminding
students to be smart
about underage drink-
ing, drunk driving and
synthetic drugs.


Former council mem-
bers Ernie Zavodnyik and
Sue Lang first proposed
the ordinance a month
before they were voted
out of office in their 2010
reelection bid.
Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo pushed
to resurrect the ordi-
nance when it appeared

of the ordinance in 2010.
She said her experience
with the ordinance has
been helpful.
At first "challenges
were common,but later
they diminished," she
said.
"It's made an enor-
mous difference all these
years without having a
great deal of enforce-

HIGH SCHOOL VARSITY BASEBALL



Indians capitalize on errors, win seventh straight


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High Baseball
Coach Craig Faulkner
often says if you put the
ball on the ground in high
school baseball, good
things will happen.
Those words proved
prophetic Tuesday
night in Venice's district
showdown at Sarasota
as the Indians (8-1, 7-0)
capitalized on five Sailors
(6-3, 5-2) errors en route
to a 6-2 victory.
With the win, the
Indians maintained their
unblemished record
in district play and put
themselves in position
to clinch the No. 1 seed
in the District 11 tour-
nament with a win at
Manatee Thursday.
"It's a huge win,"
Faulkner said. "We've got
to win one of the next
three to be the No. 1 seed.
We feel pretty good with
that.
"We get to play
Manatee on Thursday,
so we're looking forward
to going to their place
and hopefully sealing the
district No. 1 seed."
The Indians' scoreless


inning streak came to an
end at 38 in the bottom
of the second inning as
Mason Dancer's double to
right field scored Michael
Busby to give the Sailors
an early 1-0 lead.
With two runners in
scoring position and just
one out, Venice starter
Tyson Albert avoided fur-
ther damage by inducing
consecutive groundouts
to end the inning.
The Indians took con-
trol in the top of the third,
scoring three runs in the
frame without a base hit.
Venice loaded the bases
with no outs on a pair
of walks and a throwing
error by Busby, the Sailors
shortstop.
Sarasota third baseman
Tyler Leonard went for
the force-out at home on
Mike Rivera's chopper,
but Leonard's throw was
errant, allowing Dalton
Guthrie and Danny
Raynor to score. Ryan
Miller grounded into
a fielder's choice that
scored Brandon Elmy and
gave Venice a 3-1 lead.
Sarasota Head Coach
Clyde Metcalf said, "Oh
my God. Three runs
on no hits. And that's


after we banged the
ball around a little bit,
and we turn right back
around and give them the
momentum back."
Indians third baseman
Josh Grubbs led off the
fourth with a triple to the
right field corner, and
Guthrie's RBI single up
the middle scored Grubbs
to make it 4-1 Venice.
The Sailors put run-
ners on the corners with
one out in the bottom of
the fourth, and Dancer's
sacrifice fly to center cut
the Indians' lead to 4-2.
Albert left the game after
3 /3 innings, allowing four
hits and one earned run.
Venice closer Cooper
Hammond got the final
10 outs for the Indians,
allowing just two hits and
striking out five Sailors
for the save.
Metcalf said his hitters
had trouble adjusting to
Hammond's submarine
delivery.
"You can't simulate it,"
he said. "We did a better
job tonight overall against
him than we did last
time we faced him, than
we did last year when
we faced him. Maybe if
we could face him six or

seven more times, we'd
start catching up to it.
"You can simulate
breaking pitches, you can
simulate changeups, you
can simulate guys that
throw 95. That's (subma-
rine) a very hard pitch to
simulate. We just have to
figure out an approach
that gives us a better


opportunity against him."
Hammond credited his
infielders, whose sure-
handed glove work
stood in stark contrast
to the plethora of er-
rors Sarasota's defense
committed.
"The defense today
really helped me,"
Hammond said. "Dalton


and Colton up the middle
and Grubbs, they saved
me from a couple hits for
sure. All season they've
been like that.
"It's awesome, because
even if I do make a
mistake I know they'll try
as hard as they can and
most of the time get it."

Couple's North American odyssey nears end


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

Dave and Amy Freeman
are three weeks away
from the conclusion of a
three-year journey that
has covered nearly 12,000
miles, stretching from
the northern regions of
Canada and set to wrap up
April 6 in KeyWest with
a recent stop in Venice.
Ten years ago, the
Freemans started The
Wilderness Classroom,
a nonprofit that aims
to improve students'
understanding of and
appreciation for nature
through their first-hand
accounts of journeys all
over the world.
The Freemans' most re-
cent endeavor, the North
American Odyssey, began
on April 22, 2010 (Earth
Day) and has taken them


along the Pacific Ocean
and through northwest
Canada by kayak, back to
the U.S.-Canada border
in northeast Minnesota
via canoe and dogsled,
culminating along the
Eastern seaboard (again
by kayak).
All the while, the
Freemans have been
logging the results
of their journey on
WildernessClassroom.
com, interacting with the
2,700 classrooms across
the U.S. that utilize the
site. All of the content
on the site is free, and
interested teachers and
parents can download
lesson plans as well.
In addition to piquing
students' interest, the
North American Odyssey
aims to garner protection
of and support for North
America's waterways.


On a "normal" day,
the Freemans wake up
around 6 a.m. and travel
for anywhere between
6 to 10 hours, recording
data and filming their
surroundings all the
while. In the evening,
they cook dinner on a
portable stove, set up
their campsite for the
night and update the site,
documenting the day's
events and interacting
with students.
When traveling through
some of the more remote
areas, the Freemans carry
as much as 40 days of food
supplies on them. Their
portable menu includes
oatmeal, peanut butter
and jelly sandwiches, rice,
beans and spaghetti.
Their journey brought
them to Venice Monday
evening. Dave's aunt
and uncle are long-time


residents of Osprey. Dave
had a chance to reflect on
what he and his wife have
learned over the course of
their three-year trip.
"When it started, it
seemed intimidating," he
said. "But looking back,
it's shown us that if we
break things down into
manageable chunks and
keep working toward
something, it's not that
difficult.
"It feels good to be so
close to accomplishing
our goal."
Along the way, the
Freemans have witnessed
things most will will only
dream of.
A pair of humpback
whales lounging 15 feet
away from their kayak in
Alaska's Inside Passage?
Check.
A herd of caribou

Odyssey.

campsite while the couple
were dogsledding through
northern Canada? Ditto.
So how do the
Freemans plan to follow
up a three-year adventure
that has spanned the
entire continent?


Good question.
"We're not exactly sure
what our next adventure
will be," Dave said.

Group brings



bikers together


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

When the Sarasota
Area Dirt Riders
Association (SADRA)
was formed in 1978,
there was plenty of un-
paved land in the area,
but not many places
that were off-road ve-
hicle friendly. So it was
a perfect time to start a
club for people who love
off-road riding.
The founders of the
club discovered there
were many people who
wanted to get out and
ride their motorcycles
and ATVs on the trails
but needed places to go
where they wouldn't get
in trouble for it.
"SADRA is a club of
different varieties of
motorcycle people,"
said Randy Faul, SADRA
president. "But we
concentrate our efforts
on off-road events."
The club consists
of about 50 families,
many with multiple
riders. They travel from
Manatee, Sarasota, Lee,
DeSoto and Hardee
counties, and some from
the east coast, to ride
with SADRA friends. Faul
said their club usually
sponsors at least one race
a year, and other clubs
around the state sponsor
races SADRA members
attend.
The clubs are all
members of the Florida
Trail Riders, which
concentrates on promot-
ing the image of respon-
sible motorcyclists, and
sanctioning, scheduling,
assisting and monitor-
ing off-road motorcycle
events in the state.
"Usually, we have our

earns No. 5

national

ranking

STAFF REPORT

The Venice High
baseball team is now one
of the top five teams in
the country.
This is according to
Perfect Game, an online
media outlet devoted
to covering high school
baseball.
In a different set of
rankings, MaxPreps has
the Indians ranked 17th
in the country.
The Indians have
responded from a 3-1 loss
to Seminole High in early
February by reeling off
six consecutive victories,
the last five of which have
come via shutout.
Venice has not allowed a
run since its 5-3 win over
Braden River on Feb. 19,
outscoring opponents
31-0 during that span.
Venice shortstop
Dalton Guthrie came in at
No. 20 on MaxPreps' Top
50 Juniors list.


race around February,"
Faul said. "Our club
designs the course,
organizes everything and
runs the two-day event
from start to finish."
This year's SADRA
event, the Battle of
Buffalo Creek, was
held Feb. 16 and 17. It
included youth events
and a "fun run," where
racers and nonracers
took part in a non-
competitive lap around
the course.
There are some very
talented, nationally rec-
ognized riders in SADRA.
Young Jesse Ansley has
been the Florida Trail
Riders champion for
the last two years in the
65cc class. He currently
leads this year in the 85cc
class, and is ranked 18th

nationally for the Grand
National Cross Country
Series.
Faul said his group of
"casual" riders is like a
big family, and is very
diverse.
"There are different
kinds of bikes," Faul
said. "Some are more
race-bike oriented and
some are dual-sport,
which means you can
ride them on or off the
road."
Faul said only about
30 percent of SADRA's
members compete in
races. The rest go to
events and observe or
assist, or take advantage
of club events, like cam-
pouts and group rides.

including his family,
friends, any traumatic
incidents, his character
and experts' testimony.
Most said they could.
However one woman
said it wasn't enough to
"feel sorry" for him.
"I look at mitigators as
excuses," the woman told
Schlemmer. "I don't have
sympathy for someone
who killed someone
else."
A stream of people
weren't for the death
penalty, including a
man who said he's "very
Catholic," a Jehovah's
Witness who said he
didn't want any "blood
guilt" on his hands if
Lee was wrongly con-
victed, and a Christian
woman who said
Lee should be given
"forgiveness."
"The death penalty
is never mandatory in
Florida," Schlemmer
told most of the panel
members throughout the
day.
One man called the
death penalty "barbaric,"
adding he's not only
against it but wanted life


with the possibility of
parole. He said he didn't
want a guilty person to
die in jail. Schlemmer
explained that wasn't an
option in Florida.
A woman admitted she
saw something about
the trial on the news and
the details of the double
murder were too gory for
her because she suffers
from anxiety attacks.
The next person told
attorneys he believed
America needs to go back
30 years, "when people
were accountable for
their actions."
A younger man was
dismissed after saying,
"If the person is never
going to enter society,
why (should he) stick
around?"
A middle-aged man
said the death penalty
isn't used enough. He
thought appealing a
death sentence takes too
long before the perpetra-
tor is punished for his
crime.
Another man said if a
guilty person was going
to be "sitting around in
a cage" for the rest of his
life, he'd rather see him
executed.
A massage therapist
said her belief in healing


powers would interfere
with deciding if someone
should die for commit-
ting murder.
One man said there
are homeless people in
America, so he couldn't
see feeding and provid-
ing shelter for a convict-
ed murderer. He said it
was a waste of taxpayers'
money.
"I think our priorities
are off," he said.
The judge repeatedly
told potential jurors not
to engage in any social
media conversations
about the case. Lee's last
jury selection go-round,
with another judge
in September, ended
prematurely after an
attorney learned a male
juror contaminated the
process by making a
Facebook friend request
to a woman in the
courtroom.
Some in the poten-
tial jury pool also had
chitchattedd" at the
courthouse about their
answers to attorneys'
questions, leading 12th
Circuit Judge Donna
Berlin to declare a
mistrial.
Jury selection contin-
ues today.

itself up for more finan-
cial liability by supporting
a partial demolition.
In the end, all but
Council Member Jeanette
Gates supported the
arena bailout. Gates said
she couldn't support the
plan without knowing
whether it will be consid-
ered in compliance with
the city's building code.
Building OfficialVince
LaPorta said he felt
comfortable giving the
city up to a year to act
toward the rehabilitation
or demolition, saying the
steel support beams are
sturdy and safe, but that
eventually the city or its
partner would need to
do something with the
structure or demolish it.
Eventually, the build-
ing would fall into non-
compliance once again,
he said, if rehabilitation
doesn't take place.


With a one-year dead-
line looming, the council
implied that the decision
was an end to the five-
year-agreement with the
Circus Arts Foundation to
rehabilitate the structure.
The council also implied
an opening for other
partnerships.
"This has implications,"
Lavallee said. "Once this
is abated, there are other
opportunities for develop-
ment of this property. It
probably opens the door
for more propositions ...
be it a new arena, a new
hotel, or something else.
"In all fairness to the
(Circus Arts) Foundation,
they haven't demonstrated
they have enough re-
sources to reconstruct this.
This opens the gate for
reconsideration of what the
city wants to do with the
property" Lavallee said.
Circus Arts Foundation
spokesman Larry Ivey
admitted after three
years all they have avail-
able is $40,000 in cash.
"We spent a lot of

Holes in the roof of the Circus Arena allow the light to fall through. Soon, much of the roof will be removed to make the structure
safe until the city decides what to do with it.


money trying to raise
money," Ivey said.
He blamed the founda-
tion's lack of full-time staff
for its inability to come
through on promises
made over the past few


years, like coming up
with a business plan with
measurable accountability
goals, which is apparently
why the city never agreed
to a lease, but said with
new board members they


were "making progress."
Ivey said he supported
the city manager's plan
for partial demolition at
this time.
Council directed staff to
seek proposals for a partial


demolition, as well as a full-
scale demolition should it
come to that later on.
Airport Enterprise
funds will pay for the
partial demolition.

The joyful dance steps and singing of the Watoto Children's Choir reached an enthusiastic audience on Friday at First Baptist Church in Venice.



Watoto choir brings hope out of despair


By LOU KENNEDY
RELIGION EDITOR

Happy smiles light up
their faces as they sway
to the African rhythms
and give praise to the
love of Jesus.
"I am not forgotten. I
am not forsaken," they
sing.
As the beat continues,
one by one, the tragic
stories of abandonment
and despair are told by
the young members of
the Watoto Children's
Choir during their
performance Friday at
the First Baptist Church
in Venice.
The ravages of war,
poverty and disease
in their homeland of
Uganda had left them
orphaned, they said.
Some had been abducted
and forced to serve as
child soldiers.


"My name is Marie. My
mother could not take
care of us. My baby sister
died because there was
no money to take her
to the hospital. I know
what it feels like when
my baby sister cries for
food. I look to Jesus for
comfort and hope."
"Lord, you lift me up,"
they sing.
Wanting to be known
as "ambassadors," the
Watoto choir brings the
message to its audi-
ences that their faith has
brought them healing
and hope for the future.
What's behind these
smiling faces? Watoto
Child Care Ministries. It
has rescued and today
cares for 2,000 children
at the Watoto Children's
Village.
It began when Gary and
Marilyn Skinner moved
to Kampala, the capital of


war-torn Uganda, in 1982
and founded the Watoto
Church. Today, more than
17,000 people attend one
of its 20 weekend services
across the city.
In 1994, the Watoto
Children's Choir was
formed and began travel-
ing around the world
inspiring audiences with
their lively singing and
dancing and telling their
stories of the hope they
found in Jesus Christ.
Andrew, 11, is in the
third grade at the village
and says, "I want to be a
leader in my community.
I want to be a doctor."
Patricia, also 11, was
rescued in 2009 by the
Watoto ministries. "I was
abandoned," she said.
"My mother was taken
from our home and she
never returned."
Her stay at the Watoto
Children's Village has

Alan Crull, chairman
of the Missions Board at
First Baptist, said he and
his family were at a sum-
mer camp a few years
back when the Watoto
choir came for a brief
stay there.
"They had chicken
pox," Crull said. "When
we found out what they
were all about, we knew
we had to bring them to
First Baptist."
Crull, who helped or-
ganize the event, said 33
people make up the tour,
22 children between the
ages of 10 and 14, and
10 team adults known
as "Auntie or Uncle"
along with the Watoto
bus driver. "Nine host

gregation were chosen

Wanted: Medical

People Helping
People, the philosophy
that changed the lives
of older adults in our
community four de-
cades ago when Senior
Friendship Centers
was founded, is more
relevant than ever in
today's world.
Every day in our clinic,
we see common dilem-
mas: people in their 50s
and 60s are still reeling
with the loss of jobs with
few, if any, new opportu-
nities in sight. Struggling
financially, homes in
foreclosure, they are one
step away from losing
everything. Despite
having worked all of their
lives, the downturn in
our economy leaves them
living at near or below
poverty level.
People over age 65
struggle to live on
Social Security, unable
to afford Medicare
Supplemental Insurance
to cover lab costs and
medical services. Dental
care has fallen to the
bottom of their priority
lists. Some have gone
without care for years.
Having missing front
teeth makes it harder
to find a job; decay and
infection puts them at
risk for cardiovascular
problems.
Fortunately, there is
a place they can turn
for medical and dental
care: Senior Friendship
Centers Health Clinic.
We have a wonderful
group of volunteer
physicians, dentists,
pharmacists, nurses,
dental aides, hygienists
and other professionals.
What we don't have is
enough volunteers to
meet the numbers of
people waiting for care.
Without our services,
many will end up in hos-
pital emergency rooms,
at an enormous cost to
our community.
There is a solution. If
local health care profes-
sionals, both retired and
currently in practice,
volunteer with us, we
can make a difference
and save lives. Just a few
hours a week or even
a month will make it
possible to reduce our
wait lists.
For me, the best part
of volunteering at the
clinic is being able to
continue doing what I
love practicing medi-
cine. It's very satisfying
to see how we change
lives. We see our patients
getting better. We see the
relief on their faces when
they find care without
adding undue stress to
their financial burdens,
because our medical fees
are on a sliding scale
based on ability to pay
and our dental fees are
modest, helping to cover
lab and materials costs
only.
Senior Friendship
Centers' clinic in Venice
is open four days a week.
We have 20 physicians
whose specialties include
family practice, internal
medicine, orthopedics,
cardiology, neurology,


ENT, audiology, urology,
psychiatry and gynecol-
ogy. Dentists and dental
assistants are urgently
needed. During the
summer, the number
of volunteers drops as
many head North, so it is
vital that we recruit more
volunteers.
Volunteering at the
clinic is a way for those
of us who have been for-
tunate in our lives to give
back to the community
while reaping the rewards
of helping others. We
help volunteer physi-
cians from other states
obtain limited licensure
and sovereign immunity,
eliminating the high cost
of insurance.
Being able to remain
active professionally
after retirement and
experience the intel-
lectual interchange of
working with, and learn-
ing from, our colleagues
is a great benefit.
Continuing medical
education is offered
to physicians through
Venice Regional Medical
Center without charge.
We wish to thank
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation, Venice
Regional Medical Center,
Lions Club of Venice
and local physicians
in private practice for
supporting the clinic.
Donor endowments are
encouraged to help with

Crull said.

Yet, they sing on.

Deadline nearing for $10 million'Big League' park


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

A deadline is fast ap-
proaching for California-
based Big League
Dreams which designs
and builds scaled-down
versions of major league
ballparks to decide if
it wants North Port to be
home to its first Florida-
based facility.
If not, the company will
have to pay the city back a
$450,000 licensing fee by
July 11, the end of a two-
year licensing agreement
that kept the company
from building a facility
anywhere along the Gulf
Coast from Hillsborough
County south to Collier
County.
But according to BLD
Chief Executive Officer
Rick Odekirk, the com-
pany already has set its
sights on other areas in
Florida, locations that
could join North Port, or
maybe even precede the
city project, depending on
how things work out for a
similar facility being eyed
for Charlotte County.
Odekirk said BLD is still
closely watching what's
happening with Ripken
Baseball, a company
owned by Hall of Famer Cal
Ripken Jr. and his brother
Billy, who have eyed the
Murdock area in Port
Charlotte as a potential


home for their own base-
ball facility, dubbed "The
Ripken Experience." Ripken
Baseball already has ties to
Charlotte County, as own-
ers of the Charlotte Stone
Crabs, the minor league
affiliate of the Tampa Bay
Rays.
Odekirk said BLD had
the $20 million needed to
buy the land and build the
facility, but Ripken wasn't
in the picture when the
company originally set its
sights on North Port.
"We're still extremely
interested and we never
lost our enthusiasm, but
right now we're playing a
waiting game," he added.
Ripken Baseball
representatives could not
be reached for comment,
but Charlotte County
Economic Director Tom
Patton said the com-
pany recently renewed its
confidentiality agreement
with the county for an-
other year. That agreement
prevents Patton from
talking specifically about
the project, he said, but
he added that the renewal
is a strong indicator of
Ripken's continued inter-
est, and the project still is
"moving forward."
The Ripken Experience,
Patton said, would mimic
major league ballparks,
much like BLD's concept,
and would cost roughly
$10 million.


Back in July 2010, the
city approved a 30-year
licensing agreement that
originally would have seen
North Port spending more
than $15 million to build a
sports complex with major
league replica ball fields,
such as New York's Yankee
Stadium, Chicago's Wrigley
Field or Boston's Fenway
Park.
However an amended
agreement with BLD ap-
proved by the commission
in 2011 basically protected
the city from spending
any more than $450,000;
the city would never have
to buy the land or finance
the construction, and
would have the $450,000
returned if the deadline
passed and BLD never
bought land to one day
build those replica major
league fields.
City Commissioner
Jim Blucher said he
still strongly favors the
project, especially after
visiting several BLD fields
in California while on a
family trip. He said the
completed facility he vis-
ited was packed, and the
one under construction in
a separate location looked
like it already had sparked
other development, even
though it had yet to open.
BLD operates 11 facilities
in California, Texas and
Nevada.
The company says its


facilities allow for mul-
tigenerational baseball,
softball, outdoor and
indoor soccer, in-line
hockey, basketball, flag
football and sand volley-
ball. There also are batting
cages, playgrounds and
restaurants incorporated
in its current facilities.
"I thought the deal we
cut was good, but the ball
is now in their court,"
Blucher said, adding, "I
knew they were looking
at another city on the east
coast (of Florida)."
Odekirk was coy about
other potential locations,
saying only that the
Jacksonville and Fort
Lauderdale areas are
potential candidates, and
that the company was
looking "very seriously" at
the Orlando and Atlanta
areas too.
"I was not on the com-
mission when the initial
agreement of July 2010
was approved," North Port
Mayor LindaYates wrote
in an email. "I did not vote
in support of the amend-
ment (to the agreement),
which essentially enabled
a private entity to retain
$450,000 of public funds
for two years while they
think about whether
they are willing and able
to build their privately
owned and operated facil-
ity in North Port.
"The original BLD had

provisions as may be
found in a public-private-
partnership relationship.
However the first amend-
ment of 2011 materially
changed the approach
to the project to where,
in essence, the city is not
involved," Yates wrote.
"I believe based on that
amendment there is an
automatic trigger for
the entity to return the
$450,000 upon the July
2013 deadline."
Whatever the company
decides, it has just less
than four months to figure
it out a deadline of
which Odekirk said the
company is well aware.
"It's putting a puzzle
together, and we still don't
have all the pieces to make


the decision," he said.
Commissioner Cheryl
Cook was asked last
week for her input on
this story, along with her
thoughts on commission-
ers' upcoming legislative
trips to Tallahassee and
Washington, D.C. She
forwarded the Sun's ques-
tions to Sun Coast Media
Group President David
Dunn-Rankin with the fol-
lowing message attached:
"Mr. Dunn-Rankin: I
am about to leave early
morning for a long trip
to represent the city. The
Tallahassee trip is next
week. I have to attend to
city business and do not
have time to respond to
these questions."

Area woman, 67, to hike Appalachian Trail


By DANA SANCHEZ
ENGLEWOOD SUN EDITOR

AnitaWatts, 67, has
never camped out over-
night and she has had
knee surgery twice, but she
can walk, and she plans
to start a 2,175-mile hike
of the Appalachian Trail
Monday.
Watts appears in excel-
lent shape, lean and strong
from years of cycling and
walking half-marathons
- "It's a great way to see a
place," she says. She and
her daughter walked the
Gasparilla Distance Classic
in February.
She's been planning
her Appalachian Trail
thru-hike for a year and a
half, waking at 4 a.m. daily
the last six weeks to walk
around Englewood decked
out in moisture-wicking
gear with a full backpack
- 27 pounds, including
2 liters of water.
On some of these
early morning walks, the
Boca Royale resident was
mistaken several times for a
homeless person, she said.
For the next five to six
months, home forWatts
will be a long, skinny


hiking trail, sometimes just
2 feet across, through what
author Bill Bryson, one
of the trail's more famous
hikers, described as a long
green tunnel.
Will she be able to gaze
at a far horizon through
eyes of chipped granite, as
Bryson stated was his goal
on page one of his book,
"AWalk in the Woods" -
and what does that mean
anyway?
Hopefully, Sun readers
can find out as we track
Watts' hike, an estimated
5 million steps through
14 states that, if all goes
according to plan, will end
in August or September at
Mount Katahdin in Maine's
Baxter State Park.
Watts was inspired by
Mary Moynihan, a "Triple
Crowner" who hiked the
Appalachian, Pacific Crest
and Continental Divide
trails -just 122 people
had completed the Triple
Crown when she did it a
total of almost 7,000 miles
- according to Moynihan's
journal at www.trail
journals.com.
Watts was employed
for some time as a budget
analyst for the Department


of Defense, so it makes
sense when she pulls out
a spreadsheet showing her
entire AT hike all 2,175
miles broken down
into a daily schedule. The
spreadsheet includes how
many miles she plans to
hike each day, and where
she plans to spend each
night, whether camping in
her Big Agnes tent just
over 2 pounds or bunk-
ing in a hut in the White
Mountains that serves
hot meals to hikers for a
fee, and won't turn a hiker
away.
Watts admits her spread-
sheet may not be en-
tirely realistic "I haven't
planned for any zero days,"
she says. Zero days are
hiker jargon for days of
rest hiker sabbaths. No
hiking. A day to nurse sore
muscles and give blisters a
chance to heal.
Watts expects to hike
through some snow the
first month or so through
the trail's southern states,
including Georgia and
North Carolina. She has
prepared for it.
Blond-haired with
sparkling blue eyes, she
stands up, clearly more


comfortable standing than
sitting, to show how she
got lost in a snowstorm
while hiking the 12,777-
foot Buffalo Mountain in
Colorado in July.
Like other AT hikers,
Watts obsessed about
the weight of her gear
and pack, and she'll likely
continue to do so through
the hike. Nighttime banter
around campfires along
the Appalachian Trail
invariably turns to how to
shave an ounce off your
weight, according to books
about trail life.
For example, Watts
bought a lightweight sleep-
ing bag then rejected it in
favor of an even-lighter
hiking quilt after reading
about them "It's in the
shape of a mummy it
pulls around and snaps
around your neck," she
said. She made her own. It
weighs 17.5 ounces.
Her warm-weather pants
and booties weigh only
8 ounces, "And I'll be able
to get rid of them at Mount
Rogers (Va.)," she says.
Watts' mail drops also
are all planned out to the
minute. She's arranged for
food to be mailed ahead

so she can pick it up at
20 stops along the trail.
She is taking a cell-
phone, and friends and
family will be able to
see where she is and get
emailed messages via
her SPOT Satellite GPS
Messenger, "a little orange
thing that weighs 4 ounces


with five buttons," she
says. She plans to keep a
handwritten journal.

"I'm going alone," Watts
said. "It's hike your own
hike."

K-9 leader sends books to Sandy Hook


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

As Sarasota K-9 Search
and Rescue team leader
Patricia Abrams watched
the shootings at Sandy
Hook Elementary School
in Newtown, Conn.,
unfold Dec. 14, she felt
compelled to take action.
"When we heard about
the events that day, I think
the whole nation was in
shock," Abrams said of
the shootings, in which
20-year-old gunman
Adam Lanza killed 26


students, teachers and
faculty, then killed himself
as police arrived. He also
killed his mother prior to
the school assault.
"We deal with violence
a lot in what we do, and
I really felt that I needed
to do something to reach
out to the children and to
the teachers," she said.
Two days after the
shootings, Abrams sent a
letter to Sandy Hook offi-
cials on behalf of members
of the local K-9 Search
and Rescue organization,
expressing sympathy and


outlining what the group
does respond to reports
of people who are missing,
and use rescue dogs to find
them. With the letter, she
sent copies of the first two
children's books she has
written in her "Noah and
the Search Dogs" series to
be placed in the school's
library.
"Each book I have
written teaches children
the amazing courage the
search dogs have," Abrams
wrote. "Each search canine
has a special 'true' story of
what their life stood for."


With the books, which
include "The Story
of Boo," Abrams sent
baseball cards featuring
different K-9s from the
team, bookmarks and
more. Abrams began writ-
ing the books when she
noticed violence increas-
ing around the world.
"I'm so into children,
and our team's passion
is to keep them safe and
teach them how to self-
rescue, so we don't ever
have to search for them,"

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

Investment and insurance products:
S NOT FDIC-Insured 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.

4 A 97 7 K Q 10 7 6 0A J A Q 6

What is your opening bid?

A Should you open one heart, you
might find it impo',,ible to describe
your hand as the auction progresses.
Despite your five-card major, you
have a balanced 20 points and the
ideal way to describe your hand is to
open two no trump.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

AQ63VJ6 0QJ946QJ54

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1 Pass 1NT Pass
3V Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Don't let your collection of
"quacks" lure you into bidding three
no trump. If there is a game, it is most
likely in the suit where partner has
made his jump rebid. Despite your
doubleton, bid four hearts.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
16 Dbl Rdbl 14
Pass Pass 21 26
Dbl 2NT ?
What action do you take?

A Beware of bidding three hearts.
First, it is not forcing. Secondly,
partner's double of two spades
suggests he would rather not hear you
rebid hearts. It sounds as though the
opponents are floundering. Double.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

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

A These days, a jump shift response
to partner's opening bid promises
either a self-sustaining suit or a fit for
partner's suit. Since you have neither,
simply bid one spade, then make a
forcing bid in diamonds at your next
turn.

Q 5 Vulnerable, as South, you hold:

The bidding has proceeded:

What do you bid now?

A Your red two-suiter looks very
impressive, but don't get carried
away, it is still a hand with only 14
high-card points. Bid two diamonds.
Unless partner can move over that,
you won't be missing a game.

School serves students in
grades 9-12. High school
students have the option
of using either of the two
providers to meet their
specific needs.
The school uses a state-
approved curriculum with
instructional materials
that include text books
and printed materials.
Computers may be provid-
ed at no charge to eligible
students who meet family
income requirements, and
affordable Internet access
is available. Instructors
are highly qualified and/
or certified teachers, as
defined by the federal No
Child Left Behind law.
SarasotaVirtual School is
graded, just as all schools
in Florida receive a grade
each year. Teachers moni-
tor student progress and
give assignments online
and through physical ma-
terials shipped to and from
students. Student atten-
dance is monitored, based
on online activity, comple-
tion of material and
successful assessments.
Textbooks and traditional


instructional materials
are used, but much of the
content is delivered via
the providers' websites,
www.kl2.com/flvp (grades
K-12) and www.flvsft.com
(grades 9-12).
For the 2013-14 school
year, all students in grades
K-5 are eligible for enroll-
ment. Students who were
enrolled in a Florida public
school (traditional, charter
or alternative) since
Sept. 30, 2012, and who
are in grades 6-12, will also
meet the enrollment eli-
gibility criteria. According
to current Florida Statute,
students who were
home-schooled during the
2012-13 school year are
not eligible for SVS.
Parents who are inter-
ested in SarasotaVirtual
School must schedule an
appointment with the SVS
administrator to discuss
their student's needs and
all eligibility requirements.
The Sarasota Virtual
School office can be
reached at 941-927-9000,

Chuck Nowak (left) was one of the Berlin Airlift pilots. He enjoys
telling Venice Mayor John Holic about his experience of walking
away from a crashed plane. The two men are waiting at Patriots
Park for the ceremony dedicating the Berlin Airlift Memorial.


Lynn and Dick Thierry count their ticket stash at the Lions
Club fashion show. Lynn modeled clothes from La Casa Del
Quetzal Imports.


Lion Barbara McGillicuddy welcomes guests to the 5th annual
Lion's Club fashion show and champagne luncheon.


It wouldn't be Valentine's Day in Venice without the Venice Nokomis
Rotary Club's sweetheart celebration organized by Dan Boone and
committee. The group is (back row) Dan Boone and Liz Hill, (front
row) Kay Schiavone (left), Freda Boone and Marion Ogle.


Julie Stalnaker (left) and Nevenka Kovcic take a leadership role
in the Venice Nokomis Rotary Club. Nevenka's term as president
of the group is coming to an end, and Julie will be taking over.
Bravo to these two ladies in red.


Gloria Markiewicz gets a hand for orchestrating the ceremony
and dedication of the Berlin Airlift Monument at Patriots Park.


John Chadra talks about the Berlin Airlift and shows off a T-shirt
he had made with a photo of the monument on it. John is
responsible for establishing the memorial at Patriots Park.


Free screening tests kids' vision


FRAN VALENCIC
Preschool children
in Venice now have
free vision screening
through the Lions Club
Pedia Vision Program.
What a blessing it is
for youngsters to start
school knowing they may
have some vision issues
as they begin learning to
read.
This gets them help
before they fall behind.
Bravo, Lions Club.
This terrific organi-
zation offers screen-
ings for adults, too.
Members volunteer at
their screening center
at the Venice Health


Park. The club provides
large print books for the
library.
The 5th annual Mane
Event Fashion Show and
Luncheon is their main
fundraising event of the
year. Faithful sponsors
help boost the profits
so the organization can
continue its work. At the
luncheon, everyone gave
a cheer when Liz Maggio
of Reflections in Gold
won a spectacular gift
basket.
Liz donates beautiful
jewelry to the event each
year. Dick Thierry had
an armload of tickets and
his wish to win the Clyde
Butcher print came true.

The Berlin Airlift
Thanks to John
Chadra, visitors to
Patriots Park can honor
the pilots who risked
their lives to bring
food, candy, soaps and


supplies to millions of
Germans cut off from
the world by Joseph
Stalin. At the unveil-
ing of the Berlin Airlift
Monument at Patriots
Park, airmen recalled
making the drops and
others remembered how
as children in Germany
they welcomed the
supplies.
Venice Mayor John
Holic reminded every-
one, "We can do what
we set out to do through
ingenuity, determination
and perserverance."

Taking a bow
The Venice High School
Lady Indians volleyball
team took an encore
bow before a Venice High
School baseball game.
The ladies received their
state championship
rings, giving baseball
fans a chance to give
them a cheer. Bravo.

One of our best I.


The special person
of this week is Beverly
Flynn. This nice lady was
the recent co-chair of
the Lion's Club fashion
show and luncheon.
Beverly dedicates much
of her time to the Lion's
Club and service to this
community.
Each year, she
participates in the
White Cane Day walk,
the annual children's
Halloween parade
downtown and the
Easter Egg Scramble at
Centennial Park. She
owns the Venice Vision
Center and supports
nonprofits and the
Lion's Club outreach.
Bev enjoys travel and
visiting her children,
especially those who live
outside the USA. Beverly
Flynn is one of the
women who make Venice
a great place to live.


Gunther Waeling was a little boy in Germany when during the
Berlin Airlift, candy dropping from the airplanes lifted his spirits.

Blake Shelton leaves sold-out
Strawberry Festival crowd happy
By SEAN DALY
1 , I ;, I 1, ,,
Blake Shelton wasn't sure how he felt about
playing the Florida Strawberry Festival. After all,
this is a famously dry event, and the Dean Martin
of country music, the final act on the final night
of the 11-day shindig, isn't used to sober crowds.
"I don't see any guys with throw-up on their
shirts like I normally do at my shows," the
tall, scruffy singer deadpanned Sunday as he
surveyed the sold-out throngs packing the Wish
Farms Soundstage, a stadium that seats about
12,000.
In the end, though, the love between the rural
fruit fiesta and one of music's biggest stars was
mutual. In fact, thanks to Shelton and Hunter
Hayes, a young hunk who played earlier in the
day, the annual salute to strawberries set a new
record: For the first time in its 78-year history,
the fest had two sold-out concerts in just one
day.
That juicy mark is a testament to the enduring
popularity of the event; more than 525,000
visited last year, and although 2013's final tally
isn't available yet, officials did boast of having
two record-breaking weekends. But the sell-outs
are also a nod to the fest's sly ability to draw top-
notch talent to a humble patch of the Sunshine
State that is not exactly a bustling metropolis
(no offense!).
Combine that old-school charm with showbiz
savvy, and the resultant mobs were so thick
coming and going, they almost derailed Shelton's
plans, as well. "No wonder traffic sucked so bad
getting here," he said. "I didn't even think I'd
make it to my own show!"

Happy St. Paddy's

Day
I thought I had all the fun I could possibly have this
past weekend between seeing Here Come The Mummies
perform Saturday night and spending Sunday at the
Arcadia Rodeo, but then I started putting together this
week's Let's Go!
Many places will be having St. Patrick's Day festivi-
ties and specials going on this weekend. Find your
closest Irish watering hole and celebrate with some
cornedbeef and cabbage. If you don't have a favorite,
try T.J. Carney's on Venice Island, Flannigan's Irish Pub
in Venice, The Celtic Ray in Punta Gorda, The Ice House
Pub in Punta Gorda and Paddy Wagon Irish Pub in Port
Charlotte, just to name a few.
To celebrate the Irish, we have a shamrock-counting
contest in this week's Let's Go! Find the entry form on
page six. For those of you who are familiar with Let's
Go!, the contest is exactly the same as our Thanksgiving
turkey-counting contests. For those who aren't, it is
simple. Count all of the shamrocks that look like the
one on the entry form that you can find in today's issue.
Write the answer down and send it/bring it in. All of
the right answers will go in a drawing for a $25 gift
card to T.J. Carney's in Venice. Please have your entries
in by Tuesday, March 19.
Also, as March flies by, don't miss out on Spring
Training going on right here in Southwest Florida.
We've provided a guide for the rest of the month for
the Orioles, Rays and Red Sox teams with everything
you need to know about the teams. Get out and support
these teams for choosing our piece of paradise for their
yearly Spring Training.
As always, have a great week!

Barback Bobby Watkins stands in front of the frozen
drink machines at the Daiquiri Deck.


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


When asked what used to stand on the
prime piece of Venice Island real estate
the brand new Daiquiri Deck Raw Bar
is occupying, Matthew Grover, the VP
of operations for SMG and co-owner of
all three Daiquiri Deck locations, says,
"Nothing."
Hard to believe that there was an
empty lot right on the corner of Nassau
and Venice avenues, but Grover is exactly
right. That, of course, is what made it
possible for Grover's group to design and
build exactly what they wanted from the
ground up.
"The city really welcomed us with open
arms, and we used a local builder and a
local architect," Grover said. "These doors
(to the outside) open all the way up, so
that even when you're inside, you feel like
you're outside."
Indeed, the design is bright and open,
and on a beautiful southwest Florida
mid-winter day, sitting at a high top near
the bar felt like being outdoors. From the
terrazzo bar and concrete and shell floor,
to the modern, green cooling methods
used for the vats of frozen drinks, it's
obvious quite a bit of thought went into
both the design of the restaurant and the
choice to open on Venice Island.
"We did a lot of demographic research
and what we learned is that Venice is still
a family-oriented community," Grover
said. "Venice has really been a pleasure to


operate within."
The family-oriented, neighborhood kind
of atmosphere was especially important
for Grover and his partners because the
Daiquiri Deck has come a long way since
its origins on Siesta Key. Once just a bar
that also had food, Daiquiri Decks are now
restaurants that have great food, and also
serve drinks.
The company hired a corporate chef,
John Hentschl, who oversees kitchen
managers at each of the three locations:
Venice Island, St. Armand's Circle and
Siesta Key. By having one chef in charge
of menu planning, diners can be assured
of consistency in not only the menu items,
but also the quality of the dishes on it.
One of the highlights of the newest
Daiquiri Deck has also been added to the
other locations-a beautiful, gleaming
raw bar, stocked with fresh shellfish.
"We offer fresh fish from the Gulf of
Mexico, like grouper and snapper,"Grover
said."We also have gator and a unique
and tasty tuna burger. The menu is versa-
tile enough to appeal to both tourists and
locals."
Not to worry, you can still get the deli-
cious appetizers, burgers, sandwiches,
wraps and salads that you've come to
expect at a Daiquiri Deck. And of course,
the frozen daiquiris, combinations and
specialty drinks are still there, too. One
of the unique aspects of the frozen drinks

more.
Every Wednesday night is ladies night at
the Deck. For one dollar, ladies can get a
small daiquiri, champagne or house wine,
from 10 p.m. to 2 p.m. On Friday's and
Saturday, DJs play from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays,
there is a Happy Hour from 3 to 7 p.m.
But it is truly a place where the whole
family is welcome, and the patios are even
dog-friendly. Grover says that's indicative
of the role the Daiquiri Deck is hoping to
play in the Venice community.


THE NEW


Hors d'oeuvres


"We're a company that does a lot of
community support, especially with the
schools and sheriff's department" he
said. "The people of Venice have been so
generous with their time (and patronage).
We've been very pleased."
Daiquiri Deck Raw Bar is at 300 West
Venice Ave., and has plenty of space
available for private parties. It's open from
10 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week. For

GO DINING OUT


By BRENDA BARBOSA
I 1 \\ I Il I

Tucked between a paint store and a
chiropractor's office in the Towles Plaza on
U.S. 41 is Tortuga's Seafood Restaurant, a
hidden pearl that since opening last month
has been making waves in Punta Gorda's
restaurant scene.
Owners Tony Millan and Maralee
McGowen are the first to admit it's not
easy being a seafood restaurant on a busy
highway overlooking a parking lot. But
when the fish is fresh, the service is friendly
and the space is bright and cheery, word
spreads.
And spread it has. Since opening in early
February, customers have been flocking to
the little restaurant with the Spanish name
and the tropical colors. It's not uncommon
to walk in during peak lunch or dinners
hours and find the place packed. Just a week
after opening, Tortuga's served 55 covers on
a Thursday night not bad fora restau-
rant that has done virtually no advertising
or promotion.
"It's hard being a seafood restaurant not
on the water. We didn't want that to be a
handicap for us," McGowen said, crediting
the freshness of the food and a talented
kitchen staff for the restaurant's pre-grand
opening success.
Millan is a 25-year veteran of the seafood
business and owned a restaurant and
oyster bar in Panama City Beach for nearly a
decade before moving to Charlotte County.
He and McGowen opened Harbor Seafood
in Port Charlotte six years ago and, for the
most part, only buy and handle whole
fish. That gives chefs Nick Hornstein (the
former chef of Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club)
and Nick Scarangello (former owner of The
Captain and the Cowboy in Port Charlotte)
a greater ability to serve unique cuts like
grouper cheeks, the sweet-tasting scallop-
like portion of the fish.


"That's the kind of thing A
we can do here that the
average seafood restaurant
who doesn't handle its own
fish can't do," McGowen said. .
"The key to having a good
seafood restaurant is having
good seafood. It can have all
the beautiful decor in the world
but if I don't put good food on
the plate it doesn't matter."
No doubt, ask customers what they like
about the restaurant and most rave about
the scrumptious eats.
Jack and Marilyn Burwell, of Punta Gorda,
are self-described "noontime eaters"who
heard from friends about the new restau-
rant that opened in town. So they decided
to give it a try. On their first visit, Jack
ordered the cod basket served with potato
wedges and coleslaw and Marilyn ordered
the Amberjack sandwich.
"Oh it was great,"Jack said. "We enjoyed it
very much."
"It's nice to have something besides
Greek, American and Italian," Marilyn said.
"We will definitely come back."
For Millan and McGowen, seafood is a
personal affair. After all, the soon-to-be
married couple met at a sushi restaurant
eight years ago.
It was 2005 and McGowen had just
moved to Charlotte County for work. Her
diet consisted mainly of fish and she was
frustrated, she said, that there were few
restaurants in town that offered fresh
seafood.
"I didn't get it. We had this whole body of
water (Charlotte Harbor) and I didn't under-
stand why you couldn't go get fresh seafood
somewhere close," McGowen said.
So in 2007, after being laid off from
her job, she and Millan decided to go into
business together. First they opened Harbor
Seafood, and in February, after nearly
two years of searching for the right space

McGowen are all smiles after nearly two
years of searching for a spot to open
their restaurant. Tortuga's Seafood
Restaurant in Punta Gorda opened last
month.

with an accompanying kitchen, the couple
opened Tortuga's.
Like Aesop's fable The Tortoise and the
Hare, the couple believes that taking a
measured approach is the key to their
success. No gimmicks or complicated dishes.
They keep it simple, local and fresh. Above
all, they believe in being consistent. It's
why they named the restaurant Tortuga's, or
'turtle'in Spanish.


"Tony and I have always taken sort of a
turtle's-pace with our business," McGowen
said. "We haven't tried to grow it rapidly.
We try to take stock and we evaluate and
we learn. We believe that slow and steady
wins the race. That's why we have been able
to survive as long as we have. We just keep
swimming."

Annual Fishermen's Village St. Patrick's Celebration


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Situated on beautiful Charlotte
Harbor in historic Punta Gorda, Fisher-
men's Village is known for being a
relaxing, low-key kind of place for its
year-round residents and snowbirds.
But every year around mid-March,
Fisherman's Village residents and visi-
tors love to get their green on.
Welcome to the annual Fisher-
man's Village St. Patrick's Celebration,
where every attendee is just a wee-bit
Irish for the day. It all begins with a
musical stroll through the village.
"John Derryman and the Travel'n
Riverboat Show will play and walk
through the village from 11 a.m. to 3
p.m.'"said Hope Petkus, with Fisher-
man's Village. "They have a little float
which is a replica of a riverboat. Then
at 5 p.m. the Lee County Pipes and
Drums will parade through the village
to Harpoon Harry's and then to Center
Court."
If you've ever wondered what
it would be like to attend a street
festival in Ireland, with authentic
music, performers and food, this
celebration could help satisfy your
curiosity. The whole day and evening
will be full of the sights, sounds and
tastes of the emerald isle.
"We have the Celtic Irish Dancers
who will be performing for us," Petkus
said. "And in Center Court, I will have a
face painter from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., a
stiltwalker from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and a

GO EVENTS THIS WEEK


By Chris Kourapis
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Step back in time this weekend. The
Fishery Restaurant and the Rotary Club
of Placida are hosting a two-day seafood
festival in historic Placida.
Fishery restaurant owner Garry
Albritton and his wife Margaret have seen
the festival advance and grow over the
past 30 years. "It all began when local
fishermen prepared seafood delicacies for
sale," he explained."When commercial
fishing net bans went into effect, the fish-
ermen left, and area businesses took over
the job of planning a festival. Vendors and
village merchants now offer fresh seafood,
unique crafts, and original art ranging in


price from 50 cents to $5,000."Albritton,
a descendent of early fish house operator
Walter Gault, was born and raised in the
Placida area."I believe that the Placida
Festival benefits the entire community,"
he said. "We encourage local businesses,
schools and organizations to participate in
every way possible, and proceeds from the
festival are donated to local charities."
This year, as in the past, admission
to the Placida Seafood Festival is free.
Lemon Bay High School seniors and their
parents will assist with parking for festival
attendees. Parking costs $3 and benefits
Project Graduation. Parking service is an
opportunity for students to raise funds for
the 2013 graduation night event, a well
supervised, drug- and alcohol-free


celebration held in a safe and secure
environment.
The Placida Seafood Festival offers
something for every age and taste. One
vendor will be selling hot dogs from his
Harley Davidson motorcycle. Vendors and
shops will offer everything from colorful
accessories and fun, casual clothing to
nautical gifts at bargain prices. Children
will enjoy participating in crab races at
the Rotary's "Placida Downs" Race Track,
and colorful clowns will be on hand with
face painting. Once again,the Carrib-
bean Soul band "Impulse" will provide
live, island-style entertainment. Each
year artist Margaret Albritton designs a
collectible Placida Seafood Festival poster.
Posters and T-shirts with the poster design
are available for sale at the Margaret
Albritton Gallery located behind the
Fishery restaurant.
People are drawn to seafood festivals
mainly for the food, and Old Florida


waterfront dining is the hallmark of the
Fishery. Diners enjoy an array of seafood
delights including Fishery gumbo, gator
bites, crab cakes, Cajun shrimp, raw
oysters, and a sea sampler salad with
shrimp, scallops and crab meat. Grouper
sandwiches, pasta dishes, and seafood
baskets are popular choices as well. For
those who prefer an outdoor casual meal,
vendors will be serving everything from

anniversary of Ponce de Leon's landing
in-and naming of-Florida, and Pioneer
Day joins the
festivities with a
family-fun celebra-
tion of the history
and heritage of
DeSoto County.
When founded
in 1887, DeSoto 9
county was named
for Hernando
DeSoto, a later
Spanish explorer. It
originally extended
from the Gulf of
Mexico to Lake
Okeechobeeand V
from the border of VIV I F
Polk County to the
Caloosahatchee
River. In 1888,
Arcadia became the
county seat.
In 1921, this huge area was divided
into the present-day counties of Charlotte,
DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, and Highlands,
so the Society invites everyone to historic
Arcadia to enjoy Southwest Florida's
heritage.
The festival is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday,


March 16, at DeSoto Veterans Park, on State
Road 70 just west of Arcadia. Mosaic is the
platinum sponsor. DeSoto County Schools,
First State Bank, and Womack Sanitation
are"Good Ole Boys"sponsors.
Teams of emergency service personnel
will compete for unique first-, second-, and
third- place trophies in the Barbecued Rib
Cook-off.
"You'll enjoy the most mouth-watering,
lip-smacking,
finger-licking
sweet and
tangy ribs
ever,"said
Bebe Brad-
bury, the
Society's
president.
Boiled
peanuts, cane
syrup, home-
made jams
and jellies,
strawberry
R A shortcake,
iA -. swamp
cabbage and
13-2013 other special
and traditional
Florida foods
will be available.
"But you'd better save room for those
barbecued ribs!"Bradbury added.
Many volunteers will be dressed in
period costume to help recreate Florida's
frontier era. The festival will offer demon-
strations of pioneer skills and crafts,
such as wood carving, spinning thread,


soap-making,
quilting,
pine-needle
basket-making,
blacksmithing,
and churning
butter-with
biscuits to
sample the
butter.
The Chil-
dren's"discover
history"Area
will have a
pitcher pump
for water, cane
pole fishing,
candle-dipping,
writing with a
pen dipped in
an ink bottle,
a fossil dig, Penny and Barney Mees
and other free Company, the Fiddle Cri
hands-on expe- Dulcimers will also per1
hands-onxp Albritton Coker and Jan

Get scored with tea and jam at Crosley Estate


By KIM COOL
I ,I I. I ,II 1 ,I


There are few things in this world as
civilized as sitting down to afternoon tea.
Better yet is to enjoy the custom in an
elegant historic home in Sarasota.
Each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon
from now through March 28, a Royal Tea
service will be served at the Powel Crosley
Estate, which is close to the airport in
Sarasota.
Catered by Chef Larry Barrett, president
of Simply Gourmet Caterers, the Royal Tea
Service is modeled after an afternoon tea
served to some 8,000 guests at Buckingham
Palace. According to Barrett, the custom
can be traced all the way back to 1860
during Queen Victoria's reign. For that tea, a
500-foot buffet table with tea and assorted
treats is set. The queen and members of the
royal family mingle with the guests.
While hob-nobbing with the queen may
be some people's cup of tea, the genteel
setting of one of Sarasota's finest houses
may be more leisurely. Even more tempting
are some of the menu items: Cassis mari-
nated strawberry parfait, vanilla cream
fruit tartlets, scones with currant jam and
Devonshire cream and a sandwich medley
that includes a turkey/sundried tomato
pinwheel.
All these goodies are served with
steaming pots of tea, which is a wonderful-,
excuse to enjoy the luxurious atmosphere of
one of Sarasota's grand old houses.,
The 2 -story Mediterranean Revival-
style house, known as Seagate, has been
used for several decorator show houses and
. .7..:.


also as the site for theatrical offerings and
many a wedding. It has 10 bedrooms and
10 bathrooms. There is a curved stairway to
the second floor. The wall of that staircase
was covered with a scenic mural (since
removed) for one of the showhouses. Still
evident in the house are the pecky cypress
beams in the ceilings and terra cotta tile
floors, decorative plaster work and pastel
stained glass installed in some of the case-
ment windows. It is similar to the colored
glass used in the nearby Ringling home, Ca
d'Zan, which was built about the same time
- the late 1920s.
When Crosley was alive, his seaplanes
could pull up to a special dock and his
yachts could tie up in his yacht basin in the
bay adjoining his property.
Like the Ringling Museum complex, the
property is owned by the state of Florida.
Some of the land was set aside for future
expansion of the University of South
Florida.
Some people believe the house to be
haunted. That could be a conversation for
those enjoying tea or not.
Hats and gloves are not required but can
add a festive touch.
Tickets for the Royal Tea are $32 per
person, with a portion of the proceeds
going to the Crosley Foundation. Tea is
served at 2 p. m. March 14,19, 21, 26 and
28. The estate is at 8374 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota.
From Exit 213 of Interstate 75, travel -

GO SPRING TRAINING


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


If you're a
baseball fan,
there's no
better place
to be than
Southwest
Florida in
the spring-
time. In
the three-
county
area of Lee,
Charlotte
and Sarasota
counties,
we are lucky
enough to have
three of the top
teams in Major
League Baseball
here for part of
February and the whole
month of March for Spring
Training.
Though having a major
league baseball team, coaches, staffs,

and sometimes families, in town for
that length of time has a substantial
economic impact, especially when you
add in the tourism dollars from the fans
who come here to watch their teams
play, it's also the charitable nature of
the teams that makes such a difference.
Each of the three local teams, the
Boston Red Sox, the Tampa Bay Rays and
the Baltimore Orioles, are on great terms
with their adopted communities, and
are well-loved by the local fans. And in
return, the teams give back.
The Red Sox play their Spring Training
season in Fort Myers, at JetBlue Park.
As a continued show of support and
solidarity with the Fort Myers commu-
nity, the ball club held its annual week
of community service activities, from
Feb.17 to 22.
On Sunday, Feb. 17 the Red Sox held a
public open house, where everyone was
invited to tour the stadium facility, meet
the players and get autographs, and
enjoy discount concessions. Feb. 18 was
the eighth Annual Evening with the Red
Sox, which was a fundraiser benefiting
the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lee County.
Feb. 19 and 20 were days of commu-
nity service for the Red Sox players and


staff. On those two days, they volun-
teered their time and efforts at Habitat
for Humanity of Lee County, Boys
and Girls Clubs of the Sun Coast, the
Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest
Florida and CCMI's Backpack Program at
Treeline Elementary. And on Saturday,
Feb. 22, everyone participated in the
20th Annual Boston Red Sox Children's
Hospital Celebrity Classic, which helped
fund an expansion of The Golisano Chil-
dren's Hospital of Southwest Florida.
The Tampa Bay Rays hold their spring
training games at the Charlotte Sports
Park. The Rays are heavily involved in
the Charlotte community, and have a
couple of big events coming up in which
they will raise money for local charities.
On Friday, March 15, Manager Joe
Maddon and other players will shave their
heads in a show of support for children
fighting cancer. Fans can make donations
and even shave their heads with the
players. You can also make a donation by
texting "cut"to 50555. The cost is $10 and
up to participate and all proceeds will
benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
Read on for all you need to know
about getting to see your favorite spring
training team while they're still here.

Stadium:
The Red Sox call their new Spring Training
facility, JetBlue Park, Fenway South, because
it replicates their New England stadium.
The designers even included a 211-foot
green wall in left field, and it includes the
hand-operated scoreboard that was on the
Red Sox's original Green Monster until 2001.
JetBlue Park was completed in August 2010,
at a total cost of close to $79 million.
Stadium notes:
*There are five entrance gates to the park,
lettered A through E. Gate C is just to the left
of the box office and is the one used forwill-
call and Gate D is the least used public gate.
*The box office is directly behind home

Rib City Dutchkinz and Norman Love Confec-
tions are selling their specialties at the park.

is one of many productions around the globe
celebrating the 75th anniversary of the play.
It opens on Thursday, March 14 and runs
through Sunday, March 30. Performances are
at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturdays (30
minutes earlier than Venice Theatre's usual
start time of 8 p.m.) and 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets are $25-$28 for adults, $13-$15 for
students, and are on sale now at the theater's
box office, online at www.venicestage.com or
by phone at 941-488-1115. Discounted rates
are available for groups of 20 or more.
Our Town is about everyday life at the turn
of the 20th century in the fictional small town
of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire. Divided
into three acts (Daily Life; Love & Marriage;
and Death & Eternity) the play focuses on the
Webb and Gibbs families, particularly on the
developing relationship between the young
Emily Webb and George Gibbs. While showing
daily routines as simple as making breakfast,
stringing green beans, studying algebra, and
singing at choir rehearsal, Wilder simultane-
ously reflects on larger issues such as the
search for meaning, personal identity and the
eternity of the soul. Wilder's works are known


for exploring the connection between the
mundane and sacred dimensions of human
existence and "OurTown" is arguably the best-
known example.
In 1938, The New York Times called "Our
Town""beautifully evocative"and "haunt-
ingly beautiful:' More than 70 years later in its
review of the 2009 revival, the same news-
paper deemed the play more relevant than
ever saying,"'Our Town'is not a play about
the evaporated glory of simpler yesteryears.
On the contrary, it whispers to us the urgent
necessity of living in the here and now."
Venice Theatre last produced "Our Town"as
part of their 2000-2001 season. Murray Chase,
the theatre's Executive/Artistic Director, is
directing the current production. He says,"I've
been inspired by a number of fresh interpreta-
tions I've seen over the last several years and
I'm excited to direct the play again." Chase
is staging this version "in the round"and
stresses that the audience will truly feel a part
of the action.
Working under Chase's direction are local
actors Kenzie Balliet and Zachary Evanicki as
Emily and George and Daniel Greene as the
Stage Manager a role played by many
notable actors over the years including Paul
Newman, Hal Holbrook, Spaulding Gray and
Helen Hunt.
Tickets for OurTown and all Venice Theatre
shows through June 2013 are available at the
box office at 941-488-1115 or online at www.
venicestage.com. Venice Theatre is located at
140 WestTampa Ave. on the island in Venice.
Box office hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Friday; 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday;
and one hour before all performances.

THE ARTS n



'Born Yesterday' A Tale of Empowerment


Lawyer Ed Devery (Bob LaSalle) attempts to pull his client Harry Brock (Ray Burroughs)
away from reporter Paul Verrall (Jim Walsh). Billie Dawn (Ruth Shaulis) is restrained by
Eddie Brock (Rick Moore) while Senator Hedges (Lee Hakeem) looks on during a scene
from "Born Yesterday" playing from March 13-April 7 at the Lemon Bay Playhouse in
Englewood.


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT


Director Ron Bupp has done it again. He's
assembled the perfect cast for a comedy/
drama that teaches a civics lesson.
The play"Born Yesterday" by Garson Kanin
is being performed March 13 April 7 at
Englewood's Lemon Bay Playhouse, and
the demanding role of Billie Dawn, a poorly
educated, ex-chorus girl, is being played by
beautiful Ruth Shaulis who is anything but
poorly educated. Shaulis, a former Venice
Middle School teacher, values education
and has tutored kids"just like Billie."She
understands how girls, when deprived of
higher education and social graces, may
be easily influenced and manipulated.
Shaulis is new to theater. "I was inspired


by my daughter, Nicole,'she said. "I saw
my daughter perform at Lemon Bay High
School, and I remembered my own high
school and college dreams, and how I never
quite had the courage to conquer my fear
and act in plays."This epiphany of sorts led
her to acting lessons and encouraged her to
audition for parts in local theater produc-
tions.
The part of Harry Brock, the egotistical
and abusive manipulator, is played by the
deep-voiced Ray Burroughs, a real life
Medical Doctor and Sarasota County Health
Inspector. "Playing Harry Brock is quite chal-
lenging," he said. Burroughs portrayed FDR
in "Annie"and has performed for 10 years as
tough guys in local productions.
President of the Board of the LBPH,
Bob LaSalle, has starred in dozens of roles


that require accents, but this time he's the
"drunken lawyer'who advises Brock not
to allow Billie, his girlfriend, to become
tutored in order to "fit in"socially. "I love
character parts"'exclaimed LaSalle, "plus I
get to close the show with the very last line."
Insurance broker Jim Walsh enjoys acting
in area theaters. He portrays the idealistic
reporter, Paul Verrall, who investigates
Washington corruption. Verrall, the opposite
of Harry Brock, sees past the rough exterior
of Billie Dawn and encourages her to gain
self-confidence.
The roles of crooked Senator Norval
Hedges and his wife are played by Lee
Hakeem and Ann Hanucheck. Hakeem,
a retired teacher, has been active in the
Rhode Island Community Players for years.
His favorite role is that of Felix in the"Odd


Couple"and he has acted the part both in
Rhode Island and Venice. Hanucheck, LBPH
business manager, has starred in many plays
including the role of Elizabeth in "Angel
Street"and Ethel Banks in "Barefoot in the
Park." Rick Moore, who portrayed the wacky
Teddy in "Arsenic and Old Lace," is back as
Eddie Brock who is scared to death of his
powerful, control freak cousin Harry.
Cheryl Hastings, who has acted in several
LBPH productions, is the maid, Helen, and
Russ Ousley, is the assistant manager.
Lemon Bay Playhouse is located at 96
W. Dearborn St., Englewood. Curtain times
are 7:30 p.m. on weeknights and 2 p.m. for
Sunday matinees. "Born Yesterday"will be
presented on March 13-April 7. To reserve
tickets phone 941-475-6756 or go online at

Romantic entanglements abound in

fourth and final Main Stage Production
of its 2013 season.
Artistic Director, Paula Pender,
describes the play as "quite over the

"I like them all. Every play is different."

Directing the musical, "Annie" was more
work, but lots of fun. In this play men
have to practice wearing skirts and learn
how to pose as women, no easy task."
In "Leading Ladies" two desperate
Shakespearean actors, Leo and Jack, are
down on their luck after receiving poor
reviews at a Moose Hall performance.
They read a newspaper ad placed by
a wealthy socialite eager to find her
sister's long lost children, Steve and
Max. Florence, the aunt, claims that
she is dying and wants to leave the
them millions. Leo and Jack, after much
debate, decide to impersonate Flor-
ence's nephews. As they wait for a train,
they meet Audrey, Florence's part-time
health aide who tells them that they
didn't read the ad carefully enough.
Steve and Max are really Stephanie and
Maxine.
In Shakespeare, the actors reflect,
men always portrayed women. In fact,
they themselves already have a trunk
full of women's costumes from past
performances, so how hard would it
be for them to impersonate nieces?
The two don't, as the audience begins
to suspect, expect to fall in love with
two attractive women while posing as
women themselves.


How Jack, played by David Watson,
and Leo, Mike Moody, deal with the mess
they've made for themselves is something
to behold. Theater patrons will remember
Watson as the "Cowardly Lion" in the
Players' production of "Wizard of Oz."
Moody, a sales manager for Sun Broad-
casting in Fort Myers, was George Bailey in
"It's a Wonderful Life." Audrey is played by
Mariah Phillips, who is well-known for her
leading roles in "Barefoot in the Park"and
"Steel Magnolias" at Englewood's Lemon
Bay Playhouse. The sweet, attractive
niece, Meg, is acted by Sandi Wood, best
remembered as "Victoria Ambrose" in "Sex
Please We're Sixty." A veteran actress for
40 years, Gloria Dickinson, acts as Florence.
She loves her role as the cantankerous


aunt who swears a lot. Rev. Wooley, played
by Steven Pignataro, the real life VP of the
Charlotte Players Board of Directors, falls
for"Stephanie"as does Doc Myers, (Don
Lerario) who acted in last season's produc-
tion of "Forum." lan Bisset, who often
directs or works as stage manager for the
Players, is Butch.
"Leading Ladies"written by Ken Ludwig,
is being performed on March 15,16 and 17
and 21,22 and 23. Evening performances
are at 7:30 p.m. with one matinee at 2 p.m.
on Sunday, March 17.
Reserved-seating tickets are $18 for
adults and $9 for students. To reserve
tickets call 941-625-4175, ext. 220. The
Charlotte County Cultural Center is located

Tommy 0 at the Cultural Center of


Charlotte County


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

International recording and performance
artist Tommy 0 will be singing in a special
St. Patrick's Day appearance at the Cultural
Center of Charlotte County.
The Cultural Center is a 90,000-square-
foot facility that plays host to thousands
of educational, recreational, social and
entertainment activities each year. One of
the things they specialize in is bringing in
musical and theatrical performers.
Tommy 0, which stands for Organiscak,
has a varied musical background, from being
a choir director to performing in musical
theater. But his true love is in lead singing,
which is how he ended up performing at a
little place in Rome, Italy.
"He has sung at the Vatican on two sepa-
rate occasions for Pope John Paul II' said
Sandra Bracci, his manager. "Once (in 1989)
was an assignment-he was traveling with
a choral group from Ft. Myers. The other
time in (2001) was by request:'
Tommy 0 has a vast vocal range, and can
sing everything from Elvis to Pavarotti. As
a result, his talents have taken him all over
North America, both for solo performances
and theatrical productions.
"He just purchased a theater in his home-


town of Hazelhurst, Wis.," Bracci said. "It will
open this June and will be called'Tommy O's
Northern Stars Playhouse."
She says the new place will be structured
like a summer stock theater.
When Tommy 0 comes to Port Charlotte
for his special St. Patrick's Day performance,
fans can expect to hear their favorite stan-
dards, plus a bit of Irish flair.
"It will be about a 90-minute show;'
Bracci said. "Some of the songs will be from
Tommy O's show'The Broadway Stage to
the Hollywood Screen and Everything in
Between."
The show will begin at 7 p.m., but the
Cultural Center will also have a dinner
beforehand, at 5 p.m. On the menu will be
corned beef and cabbage, parsley boiled
potatoes, buttered baby carrots, Irish soda
bread, salad, rolls, water and iced tea or
coffee.
Bracci says that those attending Tommy
O's show are truly in for a treat.
"He's just a great all-around performer,"
she said. "It's always lots of fun for the
people he goes right into the audience
and gets them going."

Classic country musicians

draw huge local following


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Wisconsin natives Tom Castonia and Judy
Love, love Englewood. They married on
Englewood Beach, live in Englewood, and
perform together as "Tommy C & Judy Love
with the Barstool Mountain Boys"almost
every evening at Englewood restaurants
and social clubs. Oh, yes, all three"Mountain
Boys" live in Englewood too.
"Wild" Bob Vogt plays drums, Dan Wyatt,
bass guitar, and Bob Schultz can play
almost any stringed instruments including
mandolin, banjo and steel guitar. Tommy C
plays an acoustic rhythm guitar and sings
in the style of Hank Williams (an early
influence), Johnny Cash and a host of other
top performers. Early in his career his bands
"Bar Stool Mountain"and later"Hot Toddy"
opened for Country Music Great George
Jones, at Nic's Nicabob in Milwaukee, Wis.
Nic's was the spot where Johnny Cash,
Loretta Lynn, Charlie Pride and Waylon
Jennings drew crowds of Country Music
fans. When Tommy met Judy he could see
beyond her brilliant smile. Judy admits she
had never performed before. "He taught me
everything I know, but I do have musicians
in the family. My maiden name was'Love'
and Elvis' mother, Gladys Love, was a cousin.
That makes me Elvis'third cousin"'she
added with a grin.


In 2006 Tommy C and Judy Love formed
Three Way Productions, a company with a
cast of between 20-25 singers and musi-
cians who perform variety acts. Locals who
perform include Tony Richards, William
Cundiff, Bryan Stewart, Nick Hanfelder and
Kathy Overby. A holiday production "Memo-
ries of Christmas Past" is extremely popular,
and "Proud to be an American"appeals to
patriotism of course. "A Night at the Opry"
and "A Night at the Hop"give the couple an
opportunity to step out of character and
portray idols such as Johnny Cash and June
Carter. In fact, Cash's "Jackson"'the first song
that Tommy and Judy performed on stage
together, has become their signature song.
This month,they are booked as enter-
tainers for a seven-night West Caribbean
Cruise aboard the Norwegian Dawn.
During the summer months Tommy C and
Judy Love head for Wisconsin where they
visit family and perform for two months
before heading to Branson, Mo., to take in
world-famous Country Music Shows. "We
serve on a show awards committee with
six other judges" explained Judy. "Thirty
awards are presented which means we get
to see all the great shows and talented
performers."

Judy Love, hear their music, and view their
schedule, visit www.tommycjudylove.com.

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.


e 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!

Opening lead: Seven of
The strides taken by junior bridge
players over recent years have been
tremendous. Some years back, Joe
Grue of the United States was
awarded the International Bridge
Press Association's Best Junior Hand
of the year from a match against
Canada in the World Junior Team
Championship.
We are not sure of the meaning of
North's bid of three clubs. It would


appear North meant it as showing
shortness in the suit, but South didn't
understand that. Apparently neither
did East for he made what appeared
to be a lead-directing double, but
West did not read it that way.
The result at the other table was
that the Canadians were one down in
the same contract, losing a trick in
each suit. Here, West led the seven of
hearts, ducked round to declarer's
nine. After some thought, declarer
concluded that, had East held the
queen of spades, he would have been
reluctant to double for fear of
compromising his trump holding so,
at trick two, declarer led the knave of
trumps from hand!
Had West covered with the queen,
the contract could have been defeated
two tricks since West could have
obtained a heart ruff. Not
surprisingly, however, it never
dawned on him that South might be
leading the jack away from 100
honors in the suit, so he played low.
Declarer won, cashed the ace and
king of spades and cheerfully
conceded a trick in each side suit to
land his doubled contract.

REX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan


DEAR DR. ROACH:
Before retiring at age
60, I was 50 pounds
overweight, worked long
hours at a high-stress
job, did no exercise and
ate all the wrong things
- I was a heart attack
or stroke waiting to
happen. My doctor put
me on more and more
medication: benazepril,
Norvasc and metoprolol
for high blood pres-
sure, plus Crestor for
cholesterol.
Now retired at 63 I still
take all this stuff. I have
lost 35 pounds, and I
exercise daily, mainly by
cycling as much as 50-80
miles per day. My stress
level is zero.
My question is, Can I
or do I ever want to get
off all these prescrip-
tions, especially the
blood pressure ones? Or
is my system reliant on
them? My doctor says
not to worry about it,
that it's not bad for me,
but somehow I think I
would just be better if
I wasn't taking all this
stuff. P.K.
ANSWER: The goal
for using medication for
both high blood pressure
and high cholesterol
is to reduce the risk of
heart attack and stroke.
However, you have
probably done more
to reduce your risk of
heart attack and stroke
by your exercise, stress
reduction and weight
reduction than the
medicines could ever
have done.
The higher your risk of
heart disease and stroke,
the more benefit you
can get from medica-
tions of the kind you are
taking. As your risk has
come down with your
improved lifestyle, I can't
tell you if it's still worth
it to keep up with the
medications. It's unlikely
they are hurting you, but
they may not be helping
much or at all.
The decision to try
tapering off of them
gradually should be
made by your doctor
based on your current
blood pressure and
cholesterol numbers. I
suspect you may be able
to get off at least some
of the medications and
still keep your blood
pressure and cholesterol
where they should be.
If your blood pressure
is low, especially if you
are having symptoms

like lightheadedness,
you should talk to your
doctor right away about
cutting down.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
I am a 15-year-old boy
who pops his knuckles.
It drives my parents
crazy. They tell me to
stop and say I'll get big
knuckles. I have heard
that it will cause arthri-
tis, but I also have heard
that it doesn't have any
bad effects. Are there
any long-term problems
if I continue to pop my
knuckles? E.H.
A: Parents across
North America will be
disappointed to hear
that no, there aren't any
long-term problems
from cracking or pop-
ping knuckles. The click-
ing sound is believed
to be made by lower
pressure causing gas
bubbles to be formed
inside the joint fluid.
There is good evidence it
does not cause arthritis.
It likely will continue to
drive your parents crazy.
I don't know if this is the
goal or a side effect.

Wet, dry ... Does it matter?


Dear Heloise: Is there a
difference between liquid
and dry measuring cups?
I know there are cups
made for wet ingredients
and ones for dry ingre-
dients, but does it really
matter which one I use?
- Linda W. in Indiana
A cup is a cup by liquid
or dry "volume." A liquid
measuring cup typically
is glass or plastic so you
can see through it, and
the measurements are
written on the side. It has
a spout with a handle
on the side for pouring.
A 1- or 2-cup probably
is the most-used cup in
American homes. I have
three: two 2-cup ones
and one 1-cup one, and
two sets of dry measuring
cups.
Dry measuring cups
may be made of plastic
or metal and have a flat
top. These usually come
in sets starting with 4
cup, 1/ cup and up to 1
cup. Most are attached by
a ring. They are designed
for you to fill with dry
ingredients and then use
a knife or spatula to level
it off.
However, it may matter
which one you use,
particularly when bak-
ing. Most baking uses
measurements that are
precise, and it is difficult
to measure dry ingredi-
ents accurately in a liquid
1- or 2-cup measuring
cup. Heloise

Sliced butter

BLONDIE By Dean Young and John Marshall


MUTTS By Patrick McDonnell


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

when to take the butter
out of the refrigerator
so it will be spreadable
is something I have
never been able to master.
Softening it in the micro-
wave doesn't work for me,
either.
I use my cheese slicer
for my butter. This slicer
is the planer or server
type, not the wire type.
It will slide across the
top of the stick of butter
and produce long, thin
sections that melt quickly
and evenly for my toast,
pancakes and waffles. I
use what is left over for
cooking. Susan R. in
Virginia

No mess
Dear Heloise: I always
have green olives in my
refrigerator. I use my
melon baller, which has a
small hole in the center,
to get the olives out of the
jar. I can do this without
contaminating the brine.
I also am able to drain
the brine because of the
small hole, leaving me
with just the olives, and
no messy liquid every-
where. Diane J., via

Wife can't forgive husband

who cheated on her for years


DEAR ABBY: I have
been married 30 years and
have raised four children
to adulthood. I recently
found out my husband has
been having an affair with
a prostitute from a strip
club. He paid all her living
expenses and promised
to marry her. She was 26
when it started; he is 56. He
told her his wife had run
away with another man
and that he was divorced.
When I confronted him, he
lied, lied, lied.
He wants to continue
living together and pretend
nothing happened. He
went to counseling and
quit. Then he went to a
psychiatrist, who diag-
nosed him with a "mixed
personality disorder." He
says he wants to make up
for his mistake with me,
but all the while he was
having unprotected sex.
I doubt he'll ever stop
lying to me because he
always has. I can't spend
the rest of my life looking
over my shoulder because
this has happened before,
although not to this extent.
He said he just "led a
double life" and he doesn't
want to do it anymore. He
admitted he did it because
he never thought he would
get caught.
During this long affair,
he was brazen, arrogant
and abusive to me. Now he
wants to be attentive, but
he makes me sick.What do
I do? CAN'T TRUST HIM
IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR CANT TRUST
HIM: Only you can decide
that, but in order to do it
rationally, without anger or
vengefulness, I'm advising
you to make up your mind
AFTER some sessions with
a psychologist on your
own. What your husband
wants at this point is far
less important than what
YOU want. And why you
would want to continue in
a marriage to an abusive
philanderer is something
only you can answer.
DEARABBY: I am a
gay man who has been
single for seven years. I
met this guy, "Mark," about
10 months ago and we
hit it off immediately. We
have almost everything
in common except that
I'm a Democrat and he's a
Republican. We both know


Dear Abby

how we feel about our
political differences and
decided to continue dating
anyway.
My problem concerns
my other gay friends,
mostly Democrats, who
don't like Mark because he's
a Republican. I have tried
explaining to them that we
overlook our differences
and concentrate on the
many things we have in
common, and they should
try to do the same. But
they no longer invite me to
gatherings and their phone
calls have ceased.
I feel hurt and rejected
by my closest friends, some
of whom I have known my
whole life. I feel torn be-
tween them and Mark, who
is someone I really care for.
Is it wrong to continue my
relationship with my boy-
friend at the expense of my
friends? POLITICALLY
INCORRECT
DEAR POLITICALLY
INCORRECT: Twenty-
twelve was a particularly
heated election year, with
important issues at stake
and negative campaigning
bringing out the worst in
many people. Now that the
election has been decided,
one would hope that in-
flamed emotions will settle
down and life can return to
normal.
I know several couples
who have strong and happy
"mixed" marriages in
which the spouses do not
always agree politically. It is
a shame that you would be
required to choose between
the man you care for and
your longtime friends, who
want to ignore that there
are also gay Republicans.
I see nothing wrong with
continuing your relation-
ship with Mark; however,
I think it may be time for
you to expand your circle
of friends if this is how your
old ones behave. You'll all
be happier if you do. Trust
me on that.


"The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righ-
teous runneth into it, and is safe. Prov. 18:10.
Run to Jesus before time runs out. "Yet know not
what a day may bring forth. My spirit will not always
strive with man."

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


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even though modern
science has made it unnecessary for you to spend
hours washing clothes or preparing food, you may
still feel like the responsibilities of domestic life are
consuming a great deal of your energy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A bit of comic drama is
played out delightfully before you. Were you sup-
posed to see this? Maybe not, but you'll be glad your
keen sense of timing put you in this position.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).You're connected to


thinking in their bubble of experience so faraway
from you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).Those who don't know
you will watch to see what role you take on.You'll
show them that you are not frail and dependent on
the might and salvation of another.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll be lit up with the
excitement of some secret that you are sharing with
a kindred spirit. It's a wonderful, giddy feeling to be
in cahoots.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be drawn to


could send you Googling or asking others who
might know the inside scoop. The information you
gather will be mostly speculation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Every relationship is
different. You'll be aware of the complexities and
varieties involved in words such as "friend," "mar-
ried" or "sister."
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do your best, but don't
vow to give your whole self to any person or task to-
day. How could you possibly do that when you don't
even know your whole self just yet? You're better off


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).The color blue can
soothe your soul. Just imagining it can change your
physiology, slowing your pulse and making you
breathe deeper.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).This is an excellent
dayto change yourdiet.You'll enjoy learning about
new foods, tasting different combinations, and
gauging the way those foods made you feel.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your intellectual self
doesn't often think aboutyour natural self, but no
matter.Your natural self isn't reliant on a thought


people.You wonder what they might be doing and enigmatic people, taken in by the mystery.This
ooo


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Maybe you don't
always use the right words or know the appropriate
thing to say in every situation. But you come at
people with your heart open.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(March 13).You'll tap into a
younger part of you and reclaim the hope you once
had. Only this time, you'll be smarter about how to
go about bringing your wishes into reality. Someone
close to you will have a change of mood, and
everything will suddenly be more fun in April.Virgo
and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are:
30, 1,15,45 and 22.
