Officials point to eyesore: never again


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

More than a year has passed
since the owner of the Three
Crowns Building on Venice
Avenue began rehabbing the
entire building and city
officials aren't happy.
Impeding sidewalk traffic,
creating hardship on those
with disabilities, and a general
downturn in neighboring busi-
nesses was the impetus for a
new proposed city law that the
Venice City Council initially
approved on Tuesday.


The new law amends license
agreements with the city
that allows the businesses to
occupy the right of way or
sidewalks.
"We've had some downtown
problems with one (owner)
in particular in getting that


project completed," Building
Official Vince LaPorta said
about the Three Crowns
project. "The new law gives us
a timeline for completion ...
so it's not out there six to eight

EYESORE 15

Venice officials are not happy that construction at the Three Crowns Building
is taking more than a year to complete and is impeding foot traffic in the
process. Further, residents say the area is an eyesore and owners of nearby
businesses say they are seeing fewer customers. The city is in the process
of approving a new law that would limit construction time on projects that
impede a public right of way.


Legacy Park



may get a push


By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER
Nearly five years after the
city of Venice acquired the
land that's to become Legacy
Park, not even a shovelful of
dirt has been turned over. But
the park may take a big step
this week toward becoming a
reality.
The public is invited to a
workshop at 2 p.m. today
in the Freight Room of the
Historic Venice Train Depot,
303 E. Venice Ave., to learn


about the amenities proposed
for the 10-acre site north and
east of the depot that for-
merly was home to the Cemex
cement plant.
It's at least the third work-
shop held on the future park,
whose development has been
on the shelf for financial rea-
sons. At the most recent one,
in February 2012, city officials
were hopeful that construction
might begin that fall if the
money was in hand.

Rainbow, then water spout





























PHOTOS PROVIDED BY
MARY LUNDBERG
Thanks to Florida's ever-
changing weather, a recent
Yoga on the Beach class
was greeted by a rainbow,
followed by pouring rain.
The next morning, a water
spout was spotted near
Stump Pass State Park.


it a wash.
A mill is $1 per $1,000 of a
property's value. The tentative
rate is the maximum the city
can charge; it can be reduced,
however. The rate will ap-
pear on the county's Truth in
Millage (TRIM) notices later
this year.
With two months left in the
budget process, City Council
wanted to go into its part of
the work with the option of
putting a little extra money
into its bank account. But
even at the rate proposed by
Lavallee and Snyder, the city
would have more money to
spend.


Beaches tested for bacteria, in 'good' shape


By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER
Lil Dixon of Englewood
has traveled to beaches all
over the United States and
believes the local beaches are
the best.
"I think our beaches here
are cleaner," Dixon said. "The
water's warmer. I think they're
a lot better here."
Florida Healthy Beaches
program, made possible by
the Beaches Environmental
Assessment and Coastal
Health Act, allows weekly


testing of beach conditions
to measure enterococcus
bacteria levels for environ-
mental safety. Funding for
the BEACH Act is courtesy of
an annual grant provided by
the Environmental Protection
Agency.
"We have two basic kinds
of samples we test for:
bacteria and red tide," said
Kent Macci, environmental
supervisor with the Florida
Department of Health in
Sarasota County. "We do
them every Monday ex-
cept for extreme weather


anomalies. We know red tide
is tied to extreme runoff from
chemicals. We're trying to
figure ways to minimize our
impact on our contribution
to red tide. As far as I know,
we play a role. The more
nutrients we put out there,
the more we contribute. We
know how to minimize our
impact."
Macci said the way for
people to contribute is to be
mindful and manage their own
micro environment.

The tentative property tax
rate for the city of Venice for
2013-14 is up a bit, but only
because City Council wanted
to give itself a little breathing
room.
At Tuesday's meeting,
Council set the maximum rate
for the budget year that begins
Oct. 1 at 3.1 mills even though
City Manager Ed Lavallee and
Finance Director Jeff Snyder
recommended setting it at
3.0253 mills. That, too, is a bit
higher than last year's rate of
2.9653 mills, but a matching
reduction in the city's debt
service rate would have made

Mobile homes, condos in line for water rate cut


By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER

Manufactured home,
mobile home and condo-
minium dwellers in the
city of Venice are halfway
to getting a break in their
water bills.
Venice City Council
OK'd an ordinance on
first reading Tuesday that
would create a new class
of water customers com-
posed of those three types
of property. The ordinance
will come up for a final
vote at its next meeting.
An extensive analysis
of water use rates under-
taken after City Council
had already approved a
rate increase program
showed that those three
types of dwellings had


similar usage rates that
were significantly different
from and lower than other
multi-family accounts and
single-family residences.
As a result, the base
charge their share of
the cost of producing the
water they consume -
was too high.
If adopted, the ordinance
would reduce the base
charge for manufactured
homes, mobile homes and
condos by $6.31 a month.
The rates for single-family
units, other multi-family
units and commercial ac-
counts will go up to make
up the difference.
A 3 percent increase
was scheduled for October
anyway. Instead, for sin-
gle-family homeowners,
for example, the increase


would be 5.5 percent -
$2.76 on the first 1,000
gallons they use.
The changes provide
for a fair and equitable
distribution of produc-
tion costs, according
to Andy Burnham, of
Burton & Associates, the
city's consultants.
Still to be dealt with are
rates for the city's bulk
users of reclaimed water.
Burton & Associates
previously recommended
that they pay a higher
portion of produc-
tion costs but council
deferred addressing the
issue after participants in
a stakeholders meeting,
including representatives
of the golf courses in the
city, said the higher costs
might be prohibitive.


The stakeholders
group will be reconvened
in the fall.

Other business
Also at Tuesday's
meeting:
City Council talked
about temporary signs for
an hour and then voted
not to vote on an ordi-
nance regulating them,
fearing the proposed rules
weren't business friendly.
The city's sign code
is being revised but the
proposed ordinance
dealing with temporary
signs ones on display
for 30 days or less isn't
part of that work. Staff
was directed to revisit the
ordinance and bring it
back in September.


Staff and City
Attorney David Persson
were directed to go to
work on a city parks
master plan, which will
include an inventory and
a needs assessment that
could lead to finding a
home for the Challenger
baseball program.
The organization had
hoped to build fields at
Pinebrook Park.
Fins for the roof of
Sharky's on the Pier were
approved by a 6-0, with
Mayor John Holic sitting
out the vote because of
his connections with Mike
Pachota, the principal of
Venice pier Group Inc.,
the restaurant's owner.
City Council voted
unanimously to put the
work of the city's Charter


Review Committee on the
November ballot minus
a proposed council pay
raise. Prior discussions
had shown a consensus
on the issue but it hadn't
been voted on.
"I thought that's where
we were going with it,"
Council Member Jeanette
Gates said. "We didn't
want to get into an argu-
ment with our taxpayers
and voters over a couple
hundred dollars."
Gates, Holic and
Bob Daniels are up for
re-election this fall. They
indicated they'd likely
support holding a vote
on the referendum even
if there's no election, out
of respect for the hard
work of the committee.

Think your baby



is fast? Prove it


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
Pioneer Days in
Englewood promises
activities for the young
and old, but none are
younger than entries
in the annual Diaper
Derby, sponsored by the
Lemon Bay Woman's
Club.
The event is among
the traditional events
of the annual Pioneer
Days events. Five
years ago, the woman's
club decided to stage
the event. Last year,
Amanda Williams,
who was entered into
the 1982 competition,
entered her daughter,
Adelyn Robins.
Last year, 19 babies
and their parents par-
ticipated in the derby.
"We are all mothers
and grandmothers,"
said Terri Powell who
is coordinating the
event. Also, the Lemon
Bay Woman's Club, first
organized in 1918, was
originally called the
Lemon Bay Mother's
Club. The club now has
85 members.
"Why not carry it
on?" Powell said of the
Diaper Derby. "It's fun
to watch the parents -
and the fathers, too.
"It's a lot of fun for
the child," she said.
Powell sees the babies
making their way down
the mat as a hopeful
sign. She said, "It's nice
to see the future is be-
ing carried on."
Nadine Kubisch, the
club's president, said,
"Usually, one parent or
grandparent is at one
end of the mat, while
someone else is at the
other end of the mat
trying to call them. But
sometimes, they want
to relate to the other
babies.
"There were great-
grandparents and
grandparents cheering
them on," Kubisch said.
She also sees the event
as an opportunity for
young parents to meet
other parents their
same age.
"It's a family event,"
she said.
The Diaper Derby will
start 2 p.m. Sept. 1 at

FROM PAGE 1

The assessed value
of Venice real estate
increased 2.6 percent this
year, and new construc-
tion added another
1.2 percent. Altogether,
the city is projecting rev-
enue from all sources of
$87.3 million for FY2013-
14, up from $74.3 million
this year.
Part of the extra money

The Three Crowns
building has had scaf-
folding up for around
a year, causing a major

sure something like this
doesn't happen in the
future," said Mayor John
Holic, noting the new law
would apply to future
projects, not the Three
Crowns project.

while the city's pension

Part of it could go to

"That's not the goal.

LEGACY
FROM PAGE 1

Sarasota County had
earmarked $800,000 for
the project, leaving the
city to come up with the
remainder of the esti-
mated $1.2 million cost.
The Venice City Council
authorized pursuing
grants for its $400,000
share, but grant-seeking
efforts came up short,
though $200,000 was
awarded from the Florida
Recreation Development
Assistance Program to
pay for a concrete trail.
Today's workshop will
give the public another
chance to weigh in on
the park's proposed uses,
which include a canoe and
kayak launch, a play-
ground, picnic shelters and
a demonstration garden.
A planned trail would
connect with the Venetian


Waterway Park and the
Legacy Trail, as well as
with a trail to be built
eastward along Hatchett
Creek between Legacy
Park and Ruscelletto Park,
along the U.S. 41 Bypass.
So far the only element
to generate any contro-
versy has been a proposed
bandshell-- estimated
to cost $500,000 which
neighbors say needs to
face south or southwest,
away from their homes.
The site would also
have parking, restrooms,
a stormwater pond and
landscaping. Shoreline
restoration is planned for
Hatchett Creek, which
cuts through the park,
principally along its
northern boundary.
When developed, the
park will be jointly main-
tained by the city and the
county under an interlo-
cal agreement entered
into in 2011. The agree-
ment caps the county's

share at $5,000 per year,
with an annual adjust-
ment. Major expenses are
the city's responsibility,
as is the cost of repairing
vandalism.
Venice acquired the
property in December
2008, with the city paying
half the $7.3 million
cost and the Florida
Communities Trust con-
tributing the other half.
The property was
cleared after that but no
construction has been
undertaken. Development
has been projected to be
in phases, with Phase 1
calling for construction
of an entrance to the park
and a large grassy area
with a large stormwater
retention pond, plus
additional parking, the
canoe and kayak launch
and the picnic shelter. The
demonstration garden
and bandshell would
come later.

Sarasota Memorial Hospital ranked among nation's best


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

On a state and metro-
politan level, U.S. News
& World Report ranked
Sarasota Memorial
Hospital first in the
Sarasota and Bradenton
region and sixth, up from
eighth last year, among
Florida's 271 hospitals.
Sarasota Memorial
Hospital was the only
local hospital to make
the grade on the maga-
zine's "Best Hospitals"
list again this year,
ranking 48 of the 50 in
Gynecology.
"Only about 15 per-
cent of hospitals are
recognized for their high


performance as among
their region's best," said
Avery Comarow, the U.S.
News Health Rankings
Editor. "Just 3 percent
of all hospitals earn a
national ranking in any
specialty,"
In this year's study, in
addition to the top 50
ranking in Gynecology,
Sarasota Memorial
was recognized among
the top nationally for
achieving "high per-
forming" status in six
additional specialties.
Those specialties
included diabetes
and endocrinology;
gastroenterology and
GI surgery; geriatrics;
nephrology; orthopedics


and pulmonology, said
Kim Savage, the Senior
Communications Editor
for Sarasota Memorial
Health Care System.
"National recogni-
tion is attributed to the
dedication and diligence
SMH physicians, nurses
and staff demonstrate
every day," said Gwen
MacKenzie, the Sarasota
Memorial CEO. "While

When a loved one
passes away and fam-
ily members need
somebody to come in
and clear out a home or
apartment, that's where
the Davis Thrift Store
team of Buck, Bonnie
and Jim Davis come
in. On the instructions
of the relatives or an
attorney, they send in a
team who immediately
clean everything out.
Where valuables are
included, they will, on
instructions, arrange for
an auctioneer to handle
the disposal.
Their crew uses a
26-foot-long box truck to
move everything, includ-
ing furniture and clothes.
Closets and cabinets are
cleaned out all within
a few hours. Currently,
the team works with


assisted living facilities
including Village on the
Isle, Jacaranda Trace and
Ashton Gardens.
Items are moved to
the thrift store at 2033
Tamiami Trail South in
the Ark Plaza across from
Baffin Road. The thrift
store was 1,000 square
feet four years ago and
is now more than 3,000
square feet. The store is
only open Thursdays to
Sunday starting at 9 a.m.
with a big parking lot sale
every Sunday. Unsold
shoes, clothes, bedding
and books are donated to
charities in Sarasota.
From Harrisburg, Pa.,
Bonny Davis began her
career in a home-based
industrial catering busi-
ness before she moved
to Venice in 1983. A real
estate broker for 25 years,
she and husband Buck
owned the large Settle's,
Davis Real estate before
selling to Coldwell
Banker. She set-up
Sparkle Cleaning to man-
age new construction
cleaning, then sold it.
Realizing the need
for a specialized house
clearance team with


the opportunity to sell
unwanted items, they
set up Davis Thrift Store
and it has grown con-
sistently. For details, call

Sager,


a Venice business pioneer, to be honored


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS EDITOR

A stalwart business-
woman and entrepre-
neurial icon who played
an important role in the
growth and development
of Venice will be post-
humously honored next
Saturday.
Family and friends are
gathering to remember
Marjorie Sager, who she
was and what she repre-
sented in service to this
community. She passed
away last December.
A tribute takes place
with a memorial service
at Venice Presbyterian
Church on The Rialto
at 4 p.m. on Saturday,
Aug. 3. Her son, Jim


Sager, and daughter,
Ceci, invite all who knew
their mother to join them
on this special occasion.
Sager came to Venice
in 1964, beginning her
real estate career with
H.N. Bud Wimmers. The
first Realtor in Venice,
he opened an office on
Miami Avenue in 1926,
and it is noteworthy
he had worked with
the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers
who worked to create
Venice.
When Bud Wimmers
died, Sager took over the
business. The years of
Marjorie K. Sager Real
Estate were born, grown
and continued until
2004, when she joined


Marge Sager, who passed
away in December, will be
remembered at a service in
Venice on Saturday Aug. 3.
longtime friends, Richard
and Linda Bradway.
To colleagues, she
was not just a Realtor
but also a friend to


everyone, said Linda
Bradway, managing
broker for Premier
Sotheby's International
Realty. She was known
to many as a walking
history book of facts,
wisdom, and little-
known anecdotes about
Venice and its origins.
A founding member
of the Venice YMCA, for
her career in 2009, she
was recognized by the
National Association of
Realtors with a Lifetime
Achievement Award.
She continued working
daily with the Bradways
until her death this past
December.
Tim Paradisio, owner
of Paradise Realty of
Venice Inc., recalls Sager


as a cherished realtor
friend since 1974.
"In fact, much more
than just a friend, she
was family!" he recalled.
Her knowledge and
expertise of the Venice
real estate market always
amazed him. Before the
age of computers, she
could produce history
and critical documents
on every house in
Venice. Her honesty,
integrity and attention to
detail made her the most
respected Realtor in this
area.
"Sager was from the
old school of hand-
shakes, her word was
her bond," said Marlene
Merkle, executive direc-
tor of the Venice Area


Board of Realtors.
Sager joined the
Board in 1970 and never
had a complaint filed
against her in 42 years
as a member. Her quaint
little office on Miami
Avenue was full of his-
tory, containing every
single Multiple Listing
Services book from the
time they started being
published.
"Honored by the
National Association
of Realtors with an
Emeritus Award in her
40th year of member-
ship, she was so hum-
bled and taken aback,"
Merkle said. "That was
Marge, the quiet, wise,
caring and generous
colleague."


With 300 jobs on way, Plaza Venezia readies to open


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

What in January was
muddy quagmire has
been buzzing with
activity for the past seven
months as developers
and then contractors cre-
ated the format of Plaza
Venezia in North Venice.
Already, the project has
provided more than one
hundred jobs and when
completed with stores
opened, it is expected it
will create around 300
jobs.
This week, landscaping
was being added to the
30-acre Plaza Venezia at


the southwest corner of
Laurel and Pinebrook
roads. Building space
totals 69,770 square feet
and when completed, it
is anticipated to provide
120 jobs.
Phase one of the
project is to build a
45,600-square-foot
Publix store and six out-
parcels with phase two
being the completion of
four outparcels, accord-
ing to Michael A Collard,
president of Collard
Properties of Winter Park,
developer.
For Publix parking,
there will be 349 spaces
with an additional 119


spaces for other tenants.
Doors of the newly
built Publix superstore
are slated to open on
Thursday, Aug. 29,
confirmed Brian West,
Public Affairs Media and
Community Relations
Manager for Publix
Super Markets, Inc.
Complementing the
traditional grocery,
meat, produce, dairy
and frozen food depart-
ments, the store will
contain full-service
departments for bakery,
deli, fresh seafood and
pharmacy.
Approximately 140
Publix associates will be


employed at this store.
A further three stores
are scheduled to open
soon, according to leas-
ing agent Drew Forness,
president of Forness
Properties. He is working
with a dry cleaner and
anticipates having an up-
scale hair salon opening
and an unnamed local
business.
The Publix store and
four outparcels will
face and have access to
Laurel Road. There is
24,000 square feet for
15 smaller bay units
adjoining the anchor
store. Built to customer
requirements, they can

Venice Seaboard area possible for taxing district


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

The city of Venice
could one day join
Englewood and
two areas of the
city of Sarasota that
are Community
Redevelopment Areas
- meaning they receive
financial assistance from
Sarasota County for the
improvement of condi-
tions around businesses
and homes.
Florida statutes define
a CRA as a quasi-gov-
ernmental entity that
raises money for a des-
ignated area by dividing
the property tax revenue
with the municipal
taxing authority through
a process called tax
increment financing.
When the CRA is
formed and a base
year is established, the
property tax rate is ef-
fectively frozen as far as
most municipal taxing
authorities except
school districts are
concerned.


BACTERIA

"We're trying to go
further away from septic
systems," he said. "More
products have fewer
nutrients to stimulate
red tide. We're educating
the public more about
chemicals, nutrients and
how they impact red
tide."
Over 65,000 samples
have been collected
from over 300 beaches
across the state since
July 2000 according to
Bart Bibler, chief bureau
of water programs at the
DoH.
Testers take an initial
sample to measure the
level of enterococcus


For the duration of
the development plan,
the increased taxable
value of the included
properties is allocated
to the CRA to deposit
into a Redevelopment
Trust Fund. Money in
that fund can only be
spent in the designated
area.
"It's definitely some-
thing I would look at
if there was funding
available to encour-
age development,"
Venice City Manager Ed
Lavallee said Tuesday.
Lavallee said the
Venice Seaboard area
would likely be a
good candidate for a
CRA district. In addi-
tion to serving busi-
nesses, CRAs can also
help with residential
development.
"There are a lot
of commercial and
industrial sites over
in the Seaboard area
and a lot of it is on the
Intercoastal Waterway,"
Lavallee said. "It's a
prime site, it's close to

bacteria and issue a
rating.
"The Enterococcus
Geometric Mean is the
scale over time used by
the EPA," Macci said. "We
sample over two days.
You go back a third day
and it may not be as high
so mean takes average.
We grab a sample then
the scientist pours an
enzyme; then, 24 hours
later, the colonies
illuminate."
The ratings are: good,
where the beach con-
tains 0-35 enterococci
per 100 milliliters of
marine water; moder-
ate, 36-104 enterococci
per 100 milliliters of
water; and poor, 105 or
greater enterococci per
100 milliliters of marine
water.


downtown and it's ripe
for redevelopment. The
concentration there
seems to be business,
so we have to see within
a broader area that
the criteria could be
satisfied."
Venice Councilman
Jim Bennett said the
Seaboard area was once
considered for a CRA.
He was unaware of any
current plans for a CRA,
but said would be open
to discussing one for
the city if the matter
appeared in front of the
Venice City Council.
The city would
have to go through an
extensive CRA applica-
tion and eligibility
process with the county,
something Lavallee said
could be at least two
years away if it even
happens.
"I'm not sure what
the planning lead-in
time for it is," Lavallee
said. "I'm not sure if it's
an immediate issue for
us and I don't think it's
imminent."

"If it doesn't meet
level, we test the
sample," said Karl
Henry, environmental
administrator with the
Charlotte County Health
Department. "If it comes
back the same result,
we issue an advisory. It
should be no more than
104 enterococci."
Charlotte and Sarasota
county beaches have
rated "good" consis-
tently over the course
of the year, according to
Macci and Henry. A few
beaches have dipped to
"moderate" and "poor"
before returning to
"good" the following
week.
"Animals, runoff,
nutrients can contribute
to levels," Henry said.
"It's mainly from animal


CRAs have been
successful in Sarasota
County since the mid-
1980s. Englewood's
CRA one of 178
statewide was
established in 1999
and its Community
Redevelopment Agency
has overseen several
improvement projects
since that time. Last
August, the Sarasota
County Commission
approved two contracts
for Englewood's $8 mil-
lion West Dearborn
Street stormwater
improvement project
that is taking place in
the CRA.
Construction on that
project began last fall
and is expected to be
completed by December.
During fiscal year
2012-2013, Sarasota
County allocated
$928,256 to the
Englewood CRA and has
just under $1.1 million
allocated in the prelimi-
nary FY 2013-14 budget.
The county contributed
$3.5 million to the two

waste like those from
birds that contribute to
bacteria levels."
Henry said they follow
up to make sure septic
systems are in good
working condition.
"We respond to com-
plaints in a timely man-
ner," Henry said. "I think
that beaches are healthy
for the most part."
Macci said it's a
process that always is
improving and refining.
"It's a collaborative
effort," Macci said. "The
government as well as
the public, we all play a
role."

Sarasota areas, which
are most of downtown
and the Newtown area
on the north side of the
city, last year and has
budgeted $3.7 million
for FY 2013-14.
County Commissioner
Christine Robinson
spoke of the effect of the
CRAs on the county's
budget.
"The tax revenue


relief for your general
fund gets diminished
by the CRA," Robinson
said. "While we should
never shut the door to
CRAs as a solution, their
consequences to budgets
can be large. This is
especially magnified for
municipalities who are
already having budget
struggles."

SUN NEWSPAPERS

Protect yourself, your children from too much sun


Afew words about our friend, the
sun:
It is brutal this time of year.
High. Bright. Unrelenting. The UV
index is generally "very high" or
"extreme."
No kidding, right?
But a reminder nevertheless:
It is that special time of year when
anyone who ventures beyond the
reach of a canopy or air-conditioner
has to remember to respect the poten-
tially harmful intensity of solar rays at
latitude 29.92.
Be careful. Don't kid yourself. Don't
think today's bronze Adonis or golden
Aphrodite won't pay for it sometime
in the future. Protect yourself from the
dangers of skin cancer.
This is quadruply important for
young people.
Recent research has shown a
disturbing rise in the incidence of skin


cancer among the young, especially
among girls and younger women in
their 20s and 30s.
The Mayo Clinic studied a long-
term database of patient care in
one Minnesota county, looking for
"first-time diagnoses of melanoma in
patients 18 to 39 from 1970 to 2009."
The incidence of cancer had increased
by four times for young men over the
period, which is bad enough but far
below the eightfold rise among young
women.
The researchers warned about the
special dangers of overexposure and
childhood sunburns later in life. But
they also pointed to the use of tanning
beds.
"A recent study reported that
people who use indoor tanning
beds frequently are 74 percent more
likely to develop melanoma, and we
know young women are more likely


to use them than young men," said
Mayo Clinic dermatologist Dr. Jerry
Brewer.
Beach-tanners take note, too.
Just to review, here are some sun-
care basics:
Like so many things in life, it's
extremely important for parents to
teach their kids early about the dan-
gers of exposure. Have fun, but use
sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen.
To be specific, use suncreen with
an SPF of 15 or higher. The higher the
better. Look for a product with an SPF
of 30 that deters both UVA and UVB
rays.
Keep a tube in your glovebox, near
the bike rack or tennis racket, on the
kitchen counter. Basically, anywhere
it might jog your memory before you
head outdoors.
Keep a hat handy. Wear a hat.
Use UV-blocking sunglasses. Hip,


and they protect the eyes.
If you're headed to the beach or
out boating, apply sunscreen one-half
hour before you leave. Try to get into
the habit. The recommended use is
an ounce per application. Put more
on every two hours, and reapply after
you've been in the water.
Again, be especially vigilant
with children. Keep babies out of
direct sun for six months. If you can,
dress kids in long-sleeve sunscreen
shirts. They look cool, and they stay
protected.
The Mayo Clinic doctors also noted
skin cancer mortality rates have
decreased in recent years. That may
be because so many people have got-
ten the message about UV protection.
But it also may be that they're getting
checkups and taking care of problem
spots before they get worse. Also good
advice.


Royal Family hoopla


might surprise 'George


It's always perplexing when I
see the frenzy generated in our
country when there is an event
with the Royal Family across
the pond.
In this instance, it's the birth of
a prince and from what I gather,
it's been a long time since the
three next in line to lead have
been males, a fact that really
does not make a difference to
me or anyone else on the planet,
but is out there, nonetheless.
It seems to me there was way
more action a few centuries
back with the Royal families.
There were all sorts of con-
spiracies going on with the
kings, queens and their misfits.
In today's world, the behavior
demonstrated back then would
generate some news content
throughout the world that had
some density to it.
Today we get weddings, births
and the occasional misbehavior
of one of the family to share
with the world. Well, there was a
lady named Diana that married
into the family, divorced the
prince and then tragically died
in an auto accident.
Conspiracy was the cry of
the world; however, there was
no clear proof of the claim.
As it goes, we were left with
conspiracy theories for years.
You can't help but wonder
what George Washington and
the other freedom fighters
would have to say on our fasci-
nation with the Royal Family. If
George was here and could talk
to us, do you think he would
understand our behavior
concerning the Royal Family?
My guess would be along
these lines. George and his crew
were above average in the smart
category for their time. Perhaps
George would want to see the
history of our nation after what
he and the patriots accomplished.


History has proved that this group
had a handle on looking ahead,
evidenced by their creating the
very system we live by today.
More than likely, George would
recognize that our country has
withstood the test of time and
recognize that the country he
helped form so many years ago
has stepped up and been a leader
in both calm and turbulent times.
George would probably ap-
plaud our country's behavior
during two world wars, and he
would not understand why our
elected officials would inter-
fere with military leaders' deci-
sions and needs in other wars.
In my opinion, his response to
current leaders would surely
be, "Don't let that happen
ever again. Once a decision
is made, let the professionals
handle the business of war."
After reviewing the history
of our great nation to pres-
ent, George would probably
look at our frenzy over the
Royal Family and find it to be
surprising, considering the
past, but holding true to the
path we have taken after those
battles were fought and won
many years ago.
The path of forgetting the
past and hoping for a brighter
tomorrow seems to apply
here. The statesman in George
surely would come out and his
far reaching wisdom would be
a great thing to have in times
like these.
Surely, he could assist leaders
with understanding what those
brave men thought years ago
when writing our precious docu-
ments. Maybe he could teach our
elected officials what the words
"for the people" really mean.
Maybe our leaders would
govern based on that instead
of how to get re-elected.
Maybe George just might
show us that leadership at that
level means duty to country far
outweighs duty to one's self.
That is certainly one way
George would handle all that
fuss about a baby being born
in the Royal Family.
Of course, George just might
find a few good men, secure
some stout boats and start this
thing all over again.

Tiki timeout. Tiki huts on
Venice Beach? Well, how tacky.
Who's going to maintain them?
Who's going to reserve them?
Are you going to charge to
have a tiki hut? I think it needs
to be rethought.
Tiki time. I would love to see
tiki huts on Venice Beach and
beautiful palm trees. I've lived
here 412 years and every year
it gets prettier and prettier. I'm
going to live here until I die.
And one more thing, please try
to get rid of the mosquitoes.
Why a permit? I recently
hired a licensed contractor to
do some work at my home and
from right now, it has been a
week since the work has been
completed. He had to get a
permit, which was necessary.
But, I'm wondering if he had to
get a permit in the first place
because the city has never
sent anybody by to inspect the
work which has been done.
I'm looking in this light is
this another way for the city to
make money off of the citizens
of the city? I feel that my
contractor didn't really need
to get a permit if it was not
necessary for the city to come
and inspect this work.
Tiki waste. Would you like to
see tiki huts on Venice Beach?
No. A big waste of money.
They'll be vandalized and trash
will be there. No, Venice Beach
does not need tiki huts.
No to FOX. This is about
the column that was in
Wednesday's paper. The
Benghazi killings ... stop
watching FOX news. Where was
FOX news with the weapons
of mass destruction in the
Bush era ... where was FOX
then? They were awfully quiet
back then when thousands
of soldiers were killed when
there were no weapons of mass
destruction. Stop watching
FOX news.
Tiki tacky. Venice Beach is a
beautiful beach, but it would
be much nicer if we had some
well-selected palm trees in the
perimeter and in the back part
of the beach. As far as picnic
tables, tiki huts and all other


Let 'em


Have It
ticky-tacky crap that some
screwball wants to have there,
they will draw all kinds of
people we don't feel comfort-
able with or maybe people who
throw trash around. It doesn't
fit the Venice profile. Another
thing, if you want to go to
higher-level beaches in our area
like Siesta Key and Lido Beach,
you don't see tiki huts and pic-
nic tables and the like on those
beaches. Let's keep our beaches
in the environment that we've
had over the years.
Just say no. I'm calling to
give kudos to the person who
called in the Let'em Have It
about having a $100 dinner
at Venice's oldest and finest
waterfront restaurant and not
going back there again because
there was a dog allowed to lay
under a table in the dining
room. If more people objected
to people who bring their
animals everywhere, then
maybe the owners and manag-
ers of restaurants and retail
establishments would pay
more attention.
Everyone is allowed under
the ADA law to ask two ques-
tions of a dog owner: Is the
dog a service animal required
because of a disability? Or,
what work or task has the
dog been trained to perform?


Service dogs must be allowed,
but therapy dogs, I'm tired of
seeing them in restaurants and
everywhere else we go. Animals
belong at home. Kudos again to
that person who had the cour-
age to call this in. I agree. I will
not spend $100 at a restaurant
to sit next to a dog.
It's just not going to happen.
And until the owners and staff
of some of these establish-
ments start telling these
people to leave their dogs at
home, we're going to have to
start objecting. When we stop
spending our money there,
maybe the owners and staff
will start listening.
Boycott. I'm so fed up I can't
see straight and so are some of
my friends. We boycott restau-
rants that allow dogs outside
under tables and sometimes
inside without a leash.
Coward. This is addressed to
the coward in the small white
pick up truck on South Venice
Boulevard who hit my bicycle
while I was standing at a bus
stop. You know you did it.
That's my transportation. I was
left bruised and I don't ap-
preciate what you did. People
should reduce their speed on
SouthVenice Boulevard.
Gulf error. I see on the front
page the headline that talks
about no more pipes to the
ocean. I always thought it
was the gulf, like the Gulf of
Mexico? Editor's Note: You are
correct. The editor erred.

Lemon Bay junior golf program a hit


By GARY BROWN
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Lemon Bay Golf
Club's junior golf founda-
tion summer program is
winding up its season in
high gear.
The club had a
tournament Tuesday
for youths in the nine-,
seven-, five- and three-
hole competition. The
youngsters learned more
about the sport and
parents were encouraged
to be involved, accord-
ing to Lemon Bay golf
professionals.
Reece Barber won the
boys nine-hole title with
a 38. Gabby Vetter won
the girls nine-hole crown
with a 53. Matthew Katz
was the boys seven-hole
winner with a 29. In
five-hole action, Eddie
Lainhart won the boys
title with a 22, and Hailey
Lainhart was the girls
five-hole victor with a 33.
Tristan Comeau, Erik


Stephenson and Michael
Stephenson tied for first
in the boys three-hole
competition with 19s.
The junior program
began June 4 and ended
July 16. The program has
been in operation since
1997.
"We're trying to grow
the game of golf," Lemon
Bay Golf Club assistant
professional Ryan
Hartnett said. "Plus,
teach the kids the funda-
mentals of the game, the
rules and how to act on
the course."
Hartnett, a Lemon Bay
High School graduate who
played golf for the school,
started playing during the
junior golf foundation's
inaugural year.

Stetson coach: Lightner can 'help us right away


STAFF REPORT

Stetson head baseball
coach Pete Dunn has
high expectations for
incoming freshman
infielder Colton Lightner,
who graduated from
Venice High in May.
The sure-handed
Lightner played second
base exclusively for the
Indians, but Dunn plans


to use him in a variety of
ways.
"He is a jack of all trades
and is very versatile,"
Dunn said of Lightner.
"He is the kind of player
who can come in and
help us right away."
Lightner, who chose
Stetson over Coastal
Carolina, hit .306 with a
.784 OPS as a senior and
was named MVP of the


Perfect Game Showdown
tournament in Fort
Myers. His 22 runs scored
were the second highest
total on the team, and
he committed just two
errors on 102 chances.
He said there were a
combination of factors
that led to his decision.
"The tremendous
prestige of the Stetson
baseball program and


coaching staff ultimately
led to my decision to
attend Stetson," Lightner
said. "I also like the
academic credentials the
school has to offer."
Dunn said, "We didn't
have a very big recruiting
class this year because
we were so young last
year, but we certainly
had some needs that I
think we addressed."

Chesnas take game to nationals


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Maureen and Victor
Chesna are among the
area residents who will
be in Cleveland begin-
ning this week for the
National Senior Games.
The Englewood
couple, originally from
Wyoming, will compete
in the mixed table ten-
nis competition for the
60-64 age group. Most
of the table tennis play
occurs next week.


According to the
participant report on
the National Senior
Games Association
online site, they are the
lone Floridians vying in
mixed doubles for that
age group. Maureen
said they qualified by
winning gold in mixed
doubles at the Wyoming
Senior Olympics.
"It will be a very inter-
esting experience," said
Maureen, who teamed
with Victor to win gold
in the age 60-64 mixed


doubles event at this
year's Charlotte County
Senior Games.
The retirees have
been playing table
tennis at least four
years. They play about
two-and-a-half hours
several times a week at
clubs in Port Charlotte,
North Port and Venice.
During practice, they
get plenty of experi-
ence facing opponents
of different skill levels
because they rotate
around the table, until


they have played with
everyone in the
foursome.
"Vic and I do it
mainly for fun," said
Maureen, 61. "We re-
ally enjoy meeting the
people we play."
She has competed in
women's singles in the
past, typically in events
when she plays doubles.
She earned silver in the
55-59 women's singles
and gold in the women's
and mixed doubles at
the 2010 county Senior


Games. She won a gold
in the 55-59 singles,
women's doubles and
mixed doubles at the
2009 county Senior
Games.
"I'm always surprised
when I win," she said.
Victor, meanwhile,
competes more often in
singles these days, she
said. The 65-year-old
won gold in his singles
age bracket at this
year's county Senior
Games after a bronze in
2012.

meniscus in the first
game of the season.
"I caught an out
route, and I got hit,"
the 6-foot-i, 185-pound
Ceravolo said. "We
collided knee to knee."
Ceravolo underwent
surgery in October and
rehabbed the rest of
the school year. During
spring camp, he said, "I
just did receiving drills.
I did everything except
contact."
Ceravolo appeared in
all 10 games his redshirt
freshman season in
2011. He was fifth on the
team with 12 receptions


for 107 yards.
He has been train-
ing with Athletic Edge
Sports Performance
Conditioning founder
Mike Gough, who trains
professional athletes.
The 60- to 90-min-
ute sessions consist
of speed work and
weightlifting.
His range of motion
hasn't quite returned yet
because Ceravolo said
he isn't able to touch his
foot to his buttocks. "I
get some stiffness," he
said. "There's no pain."
Ceravolo reports for
fall camp Aug. 8.


The two also compete
in pickleball, another
pursuit common for
table tennis players.
They have been active
in pickleball three years
and play four times a
week.
"I like what I'm
playing at the time I'm
playing," said Maureen,
noting that they can
play both sports for life.

Hannah Swain, hugs her medicine pole at All Childrens Hospital
in St. Petersburg where she was treated for leukemia for several
years.


"She had a high-risk
form and lost her hair
twice," her mother Paula
Swain said. "Her last treat-
ment was Sept. 17, 2009,
but we still had to be there
weekly and then monthly
for another year. Now we
just go twice a year for
tests."
The family had a lot on
its plate. Hannah's older
brother, Ryan, now 12,
had been diagnosed with
autism and Hannah's life
was in serious danger
from childhood leukemia.
When they were finally
able to bring Hannah
home from All Children's,
Ryan was out of school
and out of control, often
experiencing violent
rages. His doctor told the
parents to change his bed-
room door to metal and
make sure the locks were
on the outside. The intent
was to keep him isolated
so he would not harm
anyone else while the
rages, which he seldom
remembered, abated.
Now in remission,
Hannah is on her way to
becoming a real drama
queen and Ryan is doing
well at his autism spec-
trum school, where he
recently earned the class
humanitarian award.
Hannah, formerly
at Pine View School, is
enrolled in a virtual school

fifth grade level.

Billy Reid was destined to be a 'Screaming Eagle'


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Billy Reid was born to
be in the 101st Airborne
and an Army Ranger in
Vietnam. He followed in
the footsteps of Claude
and Joe, his older broth-
ers, who were paratroop-
ers in the Korean War.


Claude also saw action
in Vietnam with the 5th
Special Forces.
Reid, now of North
Port, forged his mother's
name and joined the
Army in 1955 at 17.
He went to boot camp
at Fort Jackson, S.C.
From there he was sent
to ordinance school


at Aberdeen Proving
Ground in Maryland to
become an ammunition
storage specialist. It was
boring and uneventful
so he got out of the
service after three years.
That didn't
last long. Two

'N'ything's possible with hospital's oldest volunteer


In the lexicon of
mathematics, the letter N
can represent a specific
number or any number
in an equation. And
it's a good thing it can,
because that fact can
come in mighty handy
- especially if you're
interviewing Loomis
Hales, who happens to
be the oldest volunteer at
Venice Regional Medical
Center.
His opening statement
to me was simple and
direct: "I absolutely will
not allow you to mention
my age. Age is a number.
Age is in the eye of the
beholder, like beauty."
He's right, of course.
Well, Loomis is N years
old. He wears glasses
only to read. He uses a
cane on occasion, not
because of pain but, in
his words, because of
"weak knees." He still has
all of his body parts.
He's independent. He
drives himself to work at
the hospital on Tuesdays,


HOSPITAL

and he goes to the Venice
YMCA three times a
week. He might be danc-
ing in the street even as
you read this.
Doesn't sound too old.
"I'm overly blessed" is
the way he puts it, a hint
of a smile creasing his
face.
Loomis is a rare bird
around here, in that
he's a native Floridian.
He was born and raised
in Winter Haven, long
the springtime home of
the Boston Red Sox but
more famous still for
Cypress Gardens. Shortly
after he graduated from
high school there, in N,
a buddy suggested that
the two of them go down
to the Marine recruiting
station and enlist.
"I got in. He didn't,"
Loomis says succinctly.


Thus began an N-year
stint in the Marines that
took him from the East
Coast to the Pacific. He
worked his way up in the
ranks to Sergeant Major,
and though he was in
the Marshall Islands and
Guam, he did not see
active combat.
His hours were spent
in personnel and admin-
istrative duties.
"I did meet some
celebrities there," he
remembers. "Tyrone
Power and Macdonald
Carey were in our unit."
He also met Pearl Buck
and James Michener on
tour.
After the war, Loomis
went for further
education. He earned a
bachelor's degree at what
was then Shippensburg
State Teachers College in
Pennsylvania, though he
didn't intend to teach. He
followed that up with an
MBA degree from Temple
University and promptly
began an N-year career


teaching business to high
school students
Loomis, a widower
since 2007, says thought-
fully, "My wife and I
didn't have any kids, but
I had 1,400 or 1,500 kids."
What a wonderful
way to remember one's
career.
Loomis retired in N
and moved to Venice.
"A fella named Bud
Miller got me to vol-
unteer at the hospital,"
he recalls. "I started
in February 1984 as a
cashier in the gift shop.
They put me in charge of
the candy, ordering and
stocking goods."
In the early '90s,
Loomis became an
escort.
"In those days, we were
called 'white knights,'"
he remembers. "I had
one shift of fours hours
a week, on Tuesday.
Twenty-nine years of
Tuesdays"
He's accumulated
more than 7,000 hours of


PHOTO PROVIDED


Loomis Hales has accumulated 7,000 hours of volunteer time
in 4-hour increments over many years at the Venice Regional
Medical Center.


volunteer time, one four-
hour shift at a time.
Why would someone
who is N years old
volunteer?
"I like the people," he
said. "The volunteers and
the patients."


He also gets satisfac-
tion from helping people
who need it.
"I intend to keep going
until I can't," he said.
How long will that
be? It probably won't be
Nytime soon.


Habitat elects new board members


FROM HABITAT FOR HUMANITY


Habitat for Humanity
South Sarasota County
Inc. announced the elec-
tion of six new members
to its Board of Directors.
Judith H. Wilcox,
executive director, said,
"We are delighted to
welcome Judith Keeler,
Susan Rosenbaum, Sandi
Pridemore, Josie Phifer,
Tom Meyn and Rob
Nelson. We are pleased
that these exceptional in-
dividuals will offer their
guidance and leadership
to our board."

About Habitat
Habitat for Humanity
South Sarasota County
(HFHSSC) comprises sev-
eral departments, each
with varying responsibili-
ties. All departments have
one common objective:
to provide an opportunity
for qualified local families
to purchase an affordable,
safe and decent home.

How do we do this?
Bottom line: HFHSSC
accomplishes its goal
with the support and
action of volunteers. Yes,
we need donors. Yes, it
takes community part-
nerships. Yes, it requires
funding, but without
volunteers putting their
thoughts into action,
funding and partnerships

Sarasota academy looks to add middle school


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

In response to a num-
ber of requests over the
years, Sarasota Military
Academy is considering
adding a middle school
campus to a plot of land
located east of Interstate
75 in Sarasota that could
eventually serve more
than 800 students.
"We've been wanting to
develop a middle school
feeder program for the
last 12 years and we've
not run across a situa-
tion that was financially
feasible until now as a
result of this so-called
'great recession' that has
changed some numbers
for us," SMA headmaster


Daniel Kennedy said
Thursday.
SMAs main campus for
high schoolers is at 801 N.
Orange Ave., in Sarasota.
The middle school, which
would be called Sarasota
Military Academy Prep,
would be built on a
12-acre site located
at Fruitville Road and
Bethel Lane, east of 1-75.
Developer Fred Starling,
who is leading the
proposed project, said the
campus would contain
four buildings totaling
about 42,000 square feet,
and another classroom
facility could be built in
the future. The campus
would also have soccer
and lacrosse fields a
first for SMA. Starling said


the project is expected to
cost about $5 million and
could be completed by
August 2014.
Kennedy said an
opportunity arose for
some of the charter
school's investors to buy
the property. The school
would lease the land for
the first five years, with
the option of eventually
purchasing it from the
investors. Kennedy said
the process is very similar
to how SMA started at its
current location, where it
lease-optioned land from
the Diocese of Venice
before purchasing the
property outright.
Kennedy said just over
950 students attended
SMA during the 2012-13


school year, including
about 150 from the South
County area. He said
students come from as
far south as Charlotte,
DeSoto and Collier coun-
ties to attend the military
academy, which sends 97
percent of its graduates to
college. The new middle
school would hold sixth
through eighth grades,
hosting about 450 stu-
dents when it opens.
If another building is
added, it could house as
many as 800 students
over the next five years.
Sarasota County School
Board Member Caroline
Zucker said Thursday
that Kennedy has been
looking forward to adding
a middle school for many


years. She said the new
school would have some
impact on the traditional
public school system
because it would draw
from the same group of
students who currently
attend public schools in
the county. The School
Board must approve
SMAs charter request for
the project to proceed.
"It does not surprise me
that he is finally fulfilling
his dream," Zucker said.
"He's done an excellent
job with Sarasota Military
Academy with the high
school, so I think it's only
a natural thing for him
to want to try and bring
along a middle school.
... It's hard for me to say
anything negative about


it if it's a good concept
and if it's a needed
program."
Developers are request-
ing a zoning change for the
property, currently zoned
as a future major employ-
ment center, to allow the
school to be built. Starling
said the next step is for the
developers to make small
changes recommended
Thursday by the county
Development Review
Committee, including
modification to parking
and stormwater manage-
ment. The Sarasota County
Commission, which has
the final say on all zoning
matters, will consider the
rezone at a future date.

Worker surprised in big


way with new truck


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

When Irais Hernandez Delfin
went to work Thursday atValleyCrest
Landscape Co. in North Port, he had
no idea that he was about to be in for
one of the biggest surprises of his life.
In fact, he thought the whole safety-
raffle drawing thatValleyCrest holds
each year for its employees to win
a new truck was "fake."
ValleyCrest officials had other
ideas, though, as they surprised
Hernandez Delfin with a brand-new
red Toyota Tacoma pickup. The truck
was awarded as part ofValleyCrest's
National Safety Awareness Day cel-
ebration, and 3,400 employees with
exemplary safety records nationwide
were entered into a drawing for one
of four new trucks, according to
Kristi Staley, marketing communica-
tions specialist for ValleyCrest. The
firm, based in Calabasas, Calif., bills
itself as the nation's largest integrated
landscape company, according to its
website.
"It was just amazing," Hernandez
Delfin, a crew leader atValleyCrest,
said last week "I was trying to
control myself in the moment, but
I couldn't because I was so excited
about it."
The truck comes at a good time
for Hernandez Delfin, who has a
6-month-old daughter, Nicole, with
his wife Maria. He said the truck will
be a welcome addition to their two
vehicles, a small car and a Jeep.

ValleyCrest Landscape
Maintenance North Port branch
operations manager Christian Ibarra
said Hernandez Delfin almost went
into shock when he was presented
the truck He said Hemandez Delfin
is a great employee who has been
with the company since 2002.
"It was crazy," Ibarra said. "They're
the kind of people that you hope
for something good to happen. To
know that the company takes care of
its employees makes this company


great especially in this economy.
Them rewarding their employees
like this is kind of like the American
dream."
Staley said ValleyCrest has been
giving the trucks away for the last
11 years. The company, which
earned recognition in 2013 as one
of Training Magazine's top 125
companies for training, has awarded
55 trucks in that time. Staley said the
other winners this year were from
Lake BuenaVista near Orlando,
Denver and Anaheim, Calif. That cor-
responds with each of the company's
four safety regions.
"This is something that our
employees look forward to every
year because safety is paramount,
and National Safety Awareness Day
tops it all off," Staley said. "We focus
on safety and our entire workforce
gets to celebrate and recognize those
individuals who are surprised with
new trucks for their hard work."
Ibarra said the award was fitting
for Hernandez Delfin, who leads a
crew that services the Heron Creek
area of North Port.
"Safety isn't just a core value for
us; it's a way of life. Our National
Safety Awareness Day recognizes
the strides our workforce takes all
year long to ensure they do their job
well and safely," he said. "Being able
to spotlight Irais for his great work
makes this year's celebration all the
more special."

months later he re-upped

the "Screaming Eagles." In
those days, the 101st and the
82nd Airborne jumped from

82nd jumps; the 101st is air
mobile and flies into battle in

months as a civilian, I de-
cided to join Special Forces
because my oldest brother,
Claude, was in the 5th Special
Forces," he said. "I was sent to
Vietnam and when I arrived I
told them, 'I want to be where
the action is.' They sent me
to an I-Corps base camp at
Ha Thahn as a member of
A-Team 104 in 1967."
The Special Forces base
camp was in the jungle. Reid's
team consisted of a company
of Montagnards, the indig-
enous people of the country,
and two companies of South
Vietnamese soldiers. There
was a detachment of artillery
in the camp and a Caribou
twin-engine supply plane that
flew into their landing strip
hacked out of the jungle.
In the bush, Special Forces
sent two members of a
five-man A-Team consist-
ing of intelligence, medical,
communications, demolition
and weapons specialists. They
led a 250-man company of
Montagnard soldiers.
"We gave the Montagnards
uniforms and put red scarfs
around their necks. We armed
them with cast-off American
rifles," he said. "They were
very good jungle fighters.
The Montagnards hated the
Vietnamese, both North and
South.
"To prove to them we were
good soldiers, too, we would
drink a cup of warm blood
from a water buffalo they
had just slaughtered. It was
their way of making sure a
Special Forces soldier was


one of them.
"There was a small village
about 15 miles away from our
base camp. Our intelligence
suspected it was being infil-
trated by North Vietnamese.
They sent us to check it out.
"Our mobile strike force
went out on patrol and set
up at night too close to the
village. I think some of the vil-
lagers told the Vietcong where
we were. The next morning
we started to cross a nearby
river and got ambushed by the
enemy," Reid said.
"We had an artillery forward
observer calling in artillery
fire for us. He had a long
antenna attached to his radio.
I told him to use his short
antenna because the big one
could be seen too easily by the
enemy.
"He paid no attention
to what I told him. A short
time later, Lt. Katz was hit in
the shoulder by enemy fire.
Lt. David Hicks, one of our
platoon leaders, was also
wounded, and I got shot in
the foot.
"The forward artillery spot-
ter, who wouldn't listen, was
hit in the head. We put him on
a helicopter, but he died en
route to the hospital.
"Our lead platoon element
fought their way across the
river. The rest of the company
made it across too.
"We called in air strikes on
them, napalm. We killed a few
of the VC. I don't recall how
many we lost," the old soldier
said.
"At Ha Thahn we had a


young captain named Hugh
Shelton who was our Special
Forces A-Team leader. He was
an outstanding officer who
had us doing something all
the time," Reid said. "Later he
became chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, the top officer
in the military.
"Our intelligence reported
a nearby mountain trail was
being used by the NVA (North
Vietnamese Army) and the
VC. to transport military sup-
plies into South Vietnam. Two
of us in Special Forces took a
company of South Vietnamese
soldiers out on a mission to
take a look.
"Just as we reached the
trail, our point man was killed
by enemy fire. We called the
forward air controller to put
heavy ordnance on the enemy.
We didn't stay around to see
how many we killed.
"At a place called Quang
Ngai we had to call in 'Spooky'
to finish off the NVA and
VC. Spooky was a twin-
engine C-47 transport plane
equipped with Gatling guns.
Spooky opened up on them
and killed 27 of the enemy. We
brought the enemy weapons
back to our camp."
Reid returned to Vietnam
on a second tour. He was
asked to teach a course to
conventional Army troops
about how to survive a year's
service over there. When he
returned to Special Forces
headquarters at Fort Bragg,
N.C., he was given the op-
portunity to do something
entirely new.

'Heroes' is anything but humdrum


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Two curmudgeons and
an old guy with some
form of narcolepsy are
nearing the end of the
battle.
They pass their days
on the patio of the old
soldiers home in France
where each served his
country years earlier.
That is the basic
premise of "Heroes," the
second Banyan presenta-
tion this summer at the
Cook Theatre. Written
by Gerald Sibleyras, it
was translated by Tom
Stoppard.
Gustav (Peter
Thomasson) appears
to be the youngest and


most fit of the three
heroes. Despite his
grumpiness, he, too, has
demons that seem likely
to keep him here for the
rest of his life.
Philippe (Alan Kitty)
will fall asleep or pass
out right in the middle
of a conversation or
even halfway through a
friend's funeral ending
up in the grave before
the deceased.
Henri (Joseph Parra) is
the only one who really
ever leaves the patio for
very long.
Bound by fate more
than their present fate or
even their past service in
the military, they mostly
discuss present concerns
such as what will happen


to them if the home's
front patio is removed
and all those people
descend on their patio at
the back.
Although Gustav, the
quintessential curmud-
geon, never leaves the
grounds, or the patio
or even his room for
very long, it is he who
hatches the scheme to
escape to Indochina for
one last adventure or
mission.
"I wasn't thinking of
Indochina," Henri said. "I
was thinking of a picnic."
"I suggest a compro-
mise," Philippe said. "Go
up the hill where the
poplars are."
"Go to hell with your
poplars; I'm going for my


constitutional," Henri
said.
When he returns, the
fourth resident of the
patio a large stone dog
- has moved (or been
moved). The dog is more
like a pet for Gustav who
vows to take the dog
along on their mission
to the poplar trees. He
strokes the dog's stone
fur as he talks about the
"four" of them (three
men and a dog).
When a new resident
arrives, Philippe panics,
especially on learning
the man has the same
birth date. One of his
concerns is that the sister
in charge of the home
will never have two birth-
day parties on the same


day and his birthday also
is on Feb. 12. Does this
mean he will be the next
to "go?"
But getting to the
poplars is the main thing
and getting across the
river between the poplars
and the home is yet
another obstacle. There
are wonderfully funny
shenanigans on stage
as Gustav demonstrates
how he will help the
other two cross the river.
While everyone dies
eventually, and for these
men it seems eventu-
ally will be sooner rather
than later, Stoppard's
characters should live on
far longer. To understand
the meaning of "lov-
able curmudgeon" is to


understand these men.
Despite their quirks and
bouts of peevishness and
even bitterness, one can-
not help but care about
these guys.

FROM SCOPE

Residents of Sarasota
County are invited to
attend one or more "High
Tech, High Touch" com-
munity workshops being
held in Sarasota, Venice
and North Port in August.
Facilitated by the
community engagement
organization SCOPE
(Sarasota County Openly
Plans for Excellence),
each workshop will focus
on the conversations
and community data
specific to its community.
The workshops will be
co-hosted by the cit-
ies of Sarasota, Venice
and North Port and the
Institute for the Ages.
"We'll be sharing how
high-tech, high-touch ap-
proaches are contributing
to both better community
data and a more engaged
community," said Colleen
McGue, a SCOPE staff
member and a workshop
facilitator. "We hope that
participants will leave
inspired by the power of
using community data for


positive change."
Participants will review
data from last year's
workshops and contrib-
ute their perspectives on
the qualities of life that
matter most to them
about Sarasota County as
a whole, and their com-
munity in particular.
"By integrating high-
touch community con-
versations with high-tech
GIS mapping and digital
communications, we'll
be able to reach a larger
number of people (higher
touch) and thus a broader
representation of resident
thoughts and ideas," said
John McCarthy, executive
director of SCOPE.
Attendees may con-
tribute to the Sarasota
County Happiness
Matters Community
Video Campaign.
Happiness Matters is
based on the findings that
what makes us happy in-
dividually says a lot about
the kind of community


we want to live in.
SCOPE is gathering
Happiness Matters
stories in the form of
short videos and invites
residents to submit their
own. To find out how to
participate, visit:
Scopexcel.org
A High Tech, High
Touch workshop will be
held Aug. 20 in Sarasota
at the Robert L. Taylor
Community Complex;
Aug. 23 in Venice at
Venice City Hall and
Aug. 29 in North Port
at the Morgan Family
Community Center.
Each workshop will run
from 8:30 a.m. to noon
and include continental
breakfast and coffee.

FROM VENICE LIONS CLUB

Sue Spicer of the
Venice Lions Club and
her guide dog Barbie
recently attended a
Summer Program for
preschoolers at Venice
Public Library.
Spicer told the children
how she and Barbie met
and how Barbie works
to help her navigate her
very active life.
Spicer read a Braille
book titled "Ooodles of
Noodles" to the young-
sters, showing them
how she reads with her
fingers. After a question
and answer period, the
children were allowed to
greet Barbie.
Lion Barbara
McGillicuddy helped
in the presentation.
This was one of the
many activities in

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

SJ 8 5 AKQ 0 KQJ 8 7 463


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 24

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A If you play that a two-over-one
response is game forcing, by all
means bid just two diamonds.
However, if that can be passed. your
best shot is to rebid two hearts and
hope that the auction does not get out
of control. This is not necessarily a
reverse on this sequence, but it is
forcing.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
A852 ,J760 J98346Q75


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Dbl Pass
Dbl Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
1NT


A Partner has stated that one no
trump rates to be defeated, so why
should you doubt that? You do not
have much, but what you do hold
should be of help to partner -
especially the queen of clubs! Pass.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6 854 QJ95 0 K 6546A72

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

A Your 4-3-3-3 pattern is not a
serious flaw and your queen of hearts
should be upgraded. Therefore, we
opt for a slightly pushy invitational
jump to three hearts over the quieter
two hearts.

Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:


A5 2 K 9 2 0 8 K J 109 8432

What is your opening bid?

A Some pre-empt is in order. And
there is no reason why you should not
follow the Rule of Two and Three.
Not vulnerable bid within three tricks
of what you expect to make with your
long suit as trumps. You expect to
make six diamond tricks and,
possibly a heart, so open four clubs.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

S8 3 c A Q 8 7 4 0 J 9 8 K 10 6

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

A Regardless of whether you play
four- or five-card majors, the
response should be the same. If you
play one no trump forcing, here's
your chance to trot out that weapon.
If not, you should prefer one no
trump to two hearts. Your hand is a
trifle weak for a standard two-over-
one response, especially with only a
doubleton in partner's suit.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
AK J 8 2 AQ 107620 Q J 947


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH AST SOUTH
1NT Pass 3V
3NT Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You need to make a slam
suggestion and, strangely enough, a
bid of four hearts describes your
strength and heart length exactly.
With a six-card suit and no slam
aspirations, you would simply have
bid four hearts initially.

Jewish group's regional


director wins national award


FROM AMERICAN JEWISH
COMMITTEE
Brian Lipton, the
American Jewish
Committee's West
Coast Florida regional
director in Sarasota,
was honored by his
colleagues with the AJC
Staff Excellence Award
during the organiza-
tion's annual meeting,
the Global Forum, in
Washington, D.C., in
June.
Lipton was the only
staff member to earn the
award from any of the
25 regional offices in the
United States.
This prestigious award
is given annually to
employees who have
demonstrated their
commitment to AJC's
core values: respect,
teamwork, integrity,
excellence and account-
ability. The Global
Forum hosted 1,500
people from all 50 states
and 60 foreign countries
and is the preeminent
global Jewish advocacy
conference.
Dan Elbaum, director
of regional offices, said,
"Brian always makes me
happy."
Lipton demonstrates
his true love of the
Jewish people and a pas-
sion for the mission of
AJC. At a sold-out lunch
program in Sarasota this
spring, when Executive
Director David Harris


was
keynote
Speaker,
Harris said
that open-
ing the
regional
office in
LIPTON Sarasota
had its
challenges, but that "it
has worked spectacu-
larly well, and ... Brian is
the best."
Lipton is known
among staff members
and community leaders
as someone who is com-
mitted to AJC's mission,
shows uncompromis-
ing attention to detail,
and leads the region
with an enthusiastic
professionalism.
Lipton has collabo-
rated with lay leaders
during his six years
with AJC, elevating West
Coast Florida to one of
AJC's most successful
regional offices. In ad-
dition, he has been pro-
moted to lead the very
successful Adenauer
Exchange Institute in
Berlin, Germany, which
is now in its 33rd year.
This esteemed program
brings together German
government officials
and American AJC
leaders to engage in
discussions regarding
German-Israeli rela-
tions, anti-Semitism,
and German-U.S.
relations.
Lipton was appointed

to facilitate AJC's Third
Generation Initiative, a
program, also in Berlin,
which brings together
Jewish grandchildren of
Holocaust survivors to
meet with grandchildren
of German soldiers from
World War II. He was so
moved by the friend-
ships formed as a result
of these young people's
experiences, and re-
marked that "to see a
young Jewish woman
from New York, holding
hands with a young man
from Germany, as they lit
the memorial candle at a
concentration camp, was
just incredible."
For more than
100 years, AJC has
sought to advance the
peace and security
of the Jewish people
through high-level
diplomacy, strong legis-
lative advocacy, and ef-
fective interreligious and
interethnic coalitions.
AJC is the preeminent
global Jewish advocate.

Teaching artists sought


7B
WEDNESDAY
JULY 24, 2013


FROM ARTS AND CULTURAL
ALLIANCE

A new version of the
Artists In Schools pro-
gram has been created
by the Arts and Cultural
Alliance, and teaching
artists are invited to ap-
ply. Application deadline
is July 31.
The new program is
affiliated with the re-
cently launched website


created by the Sarasota
County Schools with
funding by The Patterson
Foundation. It's located
at EdExploreSRQ.com.
Arts organizations and
teaching artists are
on the site, featuring
Explorations, which can
be field trips or in-school
experiences. Teaching
artists are listed individu-
ally, and each residency
is called an Exploration.


Each teaching artist
manages his/her own
posting.
To be approved as a
teaching artist, the artist
must attend workshops
at the Alliance, com-
plete an EdExploreSRQ
Criteria Form for the
school district and be
approved by the Alliance
and school district.
Each Exploration must
be strongly connected to


school district/state cur-
riculum. Each teaching
artist's talent and offer-
ings will be enhanced
by the EdExploreSRQ
connections to the stan-
dards. This approach
has curricular and
technical specificity that
has not been addressed
before. Also, Next
Generation Sunshine
State Standards have
only recently been


implemented fully in the
schools.
A Teaching Artist
may submit multiple
Explorations.

Process
Artist submits the
Artist Application
Form and resume to
the Arts and Cultural
Alliance to Cindy
Balistreri, cbalistreri@


sarasotaarts.org.
Applications are re-
viewed by the Alliance.
Artists are selected
for the free Artists
In Schools Training
Program (four-six
sessions).
Additional help will
be provided by the
Alliance and the school
district as artists post
their Explorations on
EdExploreSRQ.com.


Hermitage plans NYC artist extravaganza


FROM THE HERMITAGE

The Hermitage Artist
Retreat offers a unique
artist experience Nov. 6-
10, which spans three
days and four nights in
New York City.
Planned around
performances by their
renowned fellows,
the trip includes an
opera performed at
the Met written at the
Hermitage, visits to
Hermitage award-win-
ning visual artist studios
and an evening that
includes newly created,
original work by over
60 composers, visual
artists, writers, poets
and playwrights, all of
whom are Hermitage


fellows.
Travel arrangements
are being coordinated
through Admiral Travel,
known for taking groups
around the world on
unique extraordinary
trips.
"What an amazing
time we have planned,"
said Bruce E. Rodgers,
executive director of the
Hermitage Artist Retreat.
"Locally, the community
has access to our artists
at short public programs
where they generally talk
about their work and of-
ten share a sample. Now
we are offering a chance
to experience their
completed works profes-
sionally performed on
New York City stages and


seen in working studios.
"The artists will spend
time with us at special
receptions and presenta-
tions planned specifical-
ly for our group. Anyone
interested in the arts will
want to join us for an
itinerary that only the
Hermitage can provide."
Trip highlights are
many. Lincoln Center's
Met opera premiere of
Two Boys was written
at the Hermitage by
composer Nico Muhly
and playwright/libret-
tist Craig Lucas, both
of whom will join us at
a private reception fol-
lowing the performance.
Visual artist studio
visits include a trip
to Harlem where


Greenfield Prize 2010
recipient Sanford
Biggers will open his
studio and then come
to lunch with us at the
famous Red Rooster.
National Artist
Advisory Committee
Chair Joe V. Melillo has
arranged for the group
to attend a Brooklyn
Academy of Music
(BAM) opening night,
the NY premiere of
Ballet Preljocaj, France's
premiere contemporary
dance company. As
executive producer of
BAM, Melillo has invited
the group to stay for the
opening night party.
Symphony Space will
be the site of a perfor-
mance entitled "The


Day Before: November
21, 1963." With the 50th
anniversary of President
Kennedy's assassina-
tion being marked this
year, Hermitage fellows
were asked to create
an original piece that
addresses what the
world was like before
everything changed on
Nov. 22, 1963.
Within two weeks,
over 60 artists re-
sponded to the request
including playwrights
Arthur Kopit, John
Guare and Craig Lucas,
composers Mick Rossi,
BoraYoon, Doug Cuomo
and Phil Kline, visual
artist Anna Schuleit and
filmmaker Bill Morrison.

State seeks stability during standards implementation


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF EDUCATION

The State Board of
Education approved rules
July 16 that will maintain
high standards while
preparing for the transi-
tion to Common Core
State Standards. Florida's
preliminary school grades
will be released once
calculations have been
reviewed for accuracy.
"Florida's future relies
on a strong education
system with the best
teachers preparing our
students for college and
career choices that meet
the expectations for an
increasingly competitive
global workforce," Gov.
Rick Scott said
"Today's vote maintains
high standards during our


transition to Common
Core State Standards
that the state's teachers,
lawmakers and education
leaders have agreed will
increase student perfor-
mance and their success
in college and careers."
The board's action
maintains the high
standards that have
raised Florida's national
standing while preparing
for the transition to the
2014-15 implementation
of Common Core State
Standards. These stan-
dards will significantly
increase the expectations
for students, teachers and
schools.
The Board adopted a
recommendation many
school superintendents
asked for that imple-
ments a rule stipulating


no individual school's
grade will drop more
than one letter grade in
any one year until the
state's transition to the
Common Core standards
is complete.
"Common Core State
Standards will improve
the futures of our chil-
dren and ensure our state
remains the best place
in the country to learn,
to work and to live," said
Florida Commissioner of
Education Tony Bennett.
"The Board of
Directors of the Florida
Association of District
School Superintendents
(FADSS) is supportive
and appreciative of
Commissioner Bennett's
recommendations to
address the immediate
concerns regarding the


school accountability
system," said Dr. Daniel
Boyd, Alachua County
superintendent and
FADSS president. "I look
forward to working with
him to develop a long-
term solution to this and
other pertinent education
issues."
"This plan takes the
task force's recommen-
dations and marries
them to a timeline
that will lead students
on a successful path
to career and col-
lege readiness," said
Hillsborough County
Schools Superintendent
MaryEllen Elia. "The
safety net provision
will help schools better
prepare for long-term
success as we transition
to the Common Core


State Standards."
The Board also ap-
proved Commissioner
Bennett's recommenda-
tion that assessment
scores of students attend-
ing Exceptional Student
Education (ESE) center
schools not be applied
to the student's "home"
school for school grade
calculations. This provi-
sion applies to students
who have never previous-
ly enrolled in a non-ESE
center school within the
district and who score
at the emergent level on
the Florida Alternative
Assessment.
Commissioner
Bennett's recommenda-
tion approved by the
Board can be viewed
at FlDoe.org/board/
meetings.

Christmas in July rings cash registers


FRAN VALENCIC


"We heard there was free
gift wrapping," some shop-
pers said while at the French
Linen Chest on Miami Avenue.
"We don't need gift wrapping.
Everything we are buying is for
us." They laughed and an-
nounced they had to deposit
their shopping bags in the car


so they could continue.
The Venice MainStreet
Christmas in July brought
shoppers to town filled with
a fun spirit. Everyone carried
several shopping bags. Sandy
McGowan, president ofVenice
MainStreet, said, "This has been
our best Christmas in July yet."
Nancy Gorski and Jan Henry,
the Our Lady of Lourdes fashion
show gurus, were checking
the bargains and as always
looking for ideas for their show
in February. Laura Bennawy,
chairman of this year's Sun
Fiesta, couldn't resist a pair of
fish earrings. Doesn't everyone
need a pair in their jewelry chest?
Mrs. Claus passed out candy
canes and chatted with many
husbands sitting on benches.


Several said the benches were
the VIP section. I am wonder-
ing, where do you get candy
canes in July? I guess it's at the
North Pole, of course.
The downtowners, includ-
ing Audrey Riggs, Joanne
Corcoran and Carolin Redlin,
wrapped packages.
Three cheers to Venice
MainStreet and bravo to all the
shoppers who made Venice
come alive. Downtown seemed
as busy as it is in season.
Even the weather cooperated.
The rain stayed away and the
overcast skies kept the humid-
ity down and the weather cool.
In only four months, Venice
kicks off another Christmas
season with the Christmas

Casey 0rtlieb Pick a festival
Let's Go! Editor


In the hot months of summer, a
weekend like this is rare. Two festivals will
take place this weekend, so if one doesn't
seem appealing maybe the other will.
Lake Placid is holding their annual Cala-
dium Festival Friday through Sunday. If
you're looking for new plants for the yard,
or just a fun getaway with the family, take
a daytrip to Lake Placid and see what all


Kim Cool

yet's Go! Features Editor


Tonight is opening night for"Joseph and
the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"on the
main stage at Venice Theatre. Thursday is
the opening night of"Troubadour's Cabaret"
featuring Bill Shustik, and Friday is opening
night of Eric Watters new cabaret show which
will be repeated Aug. 4. Shustik will repeat his
show Aug. 4 which also is the closing night for
"Joseph:'
There is an article on the cabaret series in
these pages as well as an article about the
2013-2014 season at Venice Theatre. Read
both to learn why Venice Theatre is also


the caladium hoopla is about.
If you don't feel like trekking out of
town, Pirates will be invading Punta Gorda
this weekend also. Visit Fishermen's Village
anytime this weekend and be bombarded
by pirates, crafts and other fun activities.
You'll notice there is no Let's Go! Pet
section this week. However, I wouldn't cut
you off so abruptly. You can find Mozzie's


Awesome Adventure column, as well as
Dawn Penwell's column on page 16.
Also, it's not too early to start plan-
ning for this year's Toys for Tots drive. MS
Rascal's Looney Bin is holding a poker
run leaving from Fishermen's Village
on Sunday as well. The run ends at MS
Rascal's with a party. See page 14 for more
details.


Venice Theatre is alive with sounds of music


referred to as "The theater that never sleeps."
In addition to all those productions, the
theater has an active education department
which offers classes for all ages plus a theater
tech program and keeps some 1,500 volun-
teers busy doing everything from ushering
at shows to sewing costumes, building sets,
hanging lights and acting.
The Triangle Inn has extended its display
about the Kentucky Military Institute through
November when a PBS special will air about
the Lyndon, Ky., school which maintained
winter quarters in Venice from about 1932-


1970. Student dress parades were held on
most Sundays on the land which today is the
site of Centennial Park and the city's central
parking lot.
KMI saved this city which had a popula-
tion of some 4,000 in 1927 and barely 400
until KMI arrived with faculty, students and
visiting parents who patronized what few
businesses remained in those dark days of the
Great Depression. Until it closed its Kentucky
campus in 1972, the school was considered the
country's oldest military school.

relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the

E/'N/C/V July 24-30, 2013


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

When Tom Francis says,"It's always taco
time," he isn't kidding.
That's because at Jimmy's Tacos, which
Francis owns with his wife Wendy, any
time the front shutter is open, you can get
deliciously authentic Mexican food.
The Francises have figured out that one
of the keys to their success in a food genre
that here in the United States


seems to rely upon a lot of pre-prepared
menu items, was freshness.
"This is not a fast food joint, everything
is made to order',Tom said. "When you
come in here, you can smell the freshness."
The food at Jimmy's is prepared without
the benefit of a deep fryer. As a matter
of fact, there isn't even one in the restau-
rant. Nor do the Francises feel the need to
serve their customers anything that is not
prepared for them on the


spot, just to shave a few minutes off a wait
time.
"Our guacamole is always fresh and
made in small batches;'Wendy said."The
vendors always try to get me to order the
pulp (from avocados), but I won't. I have to
have them fresh and I'll seed them."
That's why, if you go into Jimmy's and
order a slice of avocado, you can get it,
unlike some other Mexican restaurants
that serve pre-made guacamole. The
fresher the ingredients, the more the
flavors pop in everything served at the
restaurant, including the vegetarian and
gluten-free items.
Wendy makes her own chorizo sausage,
and is always on the hunt for local fish to
put on the menu. And when she serves the
grouper and mahi mahi in her fish tacos,
you can bet they will not be fried.
"I'm always trying to bring in new
menu itemsshe said."Next week, I'll be
bringing in some snapper."
One of the other reasons locals love
Jimmy's Tacos is the incredible prices. Since
the Francises have owned the restaurant,
the prices have stayed the same pretty
much in the 1980s range. Where else can
you get a freshly made steak taco for $3.50
or a shrimp quesadilla for $6.50?
For the Francises, it's all about providing
a healthy, tasty product for their
customers.
"We built this menu around our
customers,"Wendy said. "I try to give


everyone what they want, and I'm very
picky on flavor. It has to be flavorful, or I
won't serve it."
One of Jimmy's regular customers even
has an entree that Wendy is getting ready
to add to the menu, and it will be named
for him. Normando's Enchiladas will be
based on ideas that daily diner Norman
suggested to her.
And the homemade salsas, including
a fiery fresh habanero one, will soon be
available for Jimmy's loyal customers to
buy and take home. Tom estimates that by
Christmas, he'll be canning and selling the
popular Mexican condiment.
He also hopes to be able to expand his
33 inside seats and additional outside
seats into the space next door. An ambi-
tious goal for a former Marine who was
in charge of the mess hall during his time
there. But Tom knows that if you under-
stand food and how to combine flavors for
the best taste possible, the customers will
continue to come.
"I've been cooking since I was 15," he
said. "I'm not a five-star chef, but I can
get a five-star rating for this restaurant,
because the food is fresh and delicious."
Jimmy's Tacos is at 318 Tamiami Trail,
#117, in downtown Punta Gorda. They
are open Monday through Thursday, from
10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday,
from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday,
from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more infor-
mation, visit the Facebook page or call
941-347-7049 and ask about their daily
specials.

Step back in time at the Temp


By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The same fishermen, golfers and beach-
goers have been greeting customers at the
Temptation Restaurant on Boca Grande for
over 60 years. Captured in time, the figures
in the turquoise mural welcome returning
guests with the familiarface of an old
friend. Originally opened in 1947 by Homer
Addison, the restaurant and bar continue to
delight patrons with daily specials reflecting
the freshest catch of the day.
"It's just old Florida" head chef Kevin
Stockdale said of the Boca Grande fixture.
"A customersaid it's like walking into a time
capsule from when Roosevelt was in office,"
Stockdale said.
Steeped in history, the island venue still
seats guests at vintage teal booths with
white tablecloths. Jim and Karen Grace have
owned the restaurant for over 20 years.
The bartender, known as Snake, has been


mixing drinks at Temptation for 30 years.
General manager Jeff Simmons and server
Bonnie Eibe have also been a part of the
restaurant for more than 20 years.
"You're going to recognize people who
waited on you 10 years ago, even 20 years
ago"Stockdale said. The head chef has
worked on the same block for the past 17
years, first as a chef for PJ's Seagrill and the
last six years at Temptation.
Stockdale prepares a variety of oyster
dishes including Bourbon Street oysters on
the half shell, oysters served with a jalapeno
relish, and Oyster Rockefeller made with
spinach, bacon, breadcrumbs, parmesan
cheese and Pernod liqueur. Guests are also
treated to certified Angus steaks and several
delicious fried seafood dishes. Matthew
Johnson has assisted in the kitchen on and
off for the past 12 years."He has a lot of
creative ways to serve salmon,"Stockdale
said.


The island setting brings with it three
seasonal waves of customers to Temptation.
The social season brings guests visiting the
Gasparilla Inn from Valentine's Day through
Easter. The following wave brings with it
Tarpon season and fills the restaurant with
stories of tournament and sport fishing.
Finally, summertime tourists head to the
island once school's out.
Rick Sowles has been waiting tables and
bartending at the restaurant on and off
for the past 10 years. Sowles came across a
picture of the Boca Grande graduating class
of 1955 enjoying a banquet at Temptation.
"It looks like someone could have taken a
black and white picture yesterday," Sowles
said. "It blew me away."
Copper cups hang from the bar where
Sowles mixes up Temptation favorites like
the Moscow Mule or the Dark'n Stormy. The
drinks are made with either Smirnoff vodka
or Gosling's dark rum, paired with ginger


beer and a squeeze of lime. Sowles said
the copper cup"helps the drink get just a
little bit cooler on a hot summer day."
Whether it's the main dining hall or the
Caribbean Room in back, the laid-back feel
and historical character of this restaurant
have attracted the likes or local islanders,
political figures and celebrities over the
years. Four high top tables share the room
with the attached storefront to Park Avenue
Wine and Spirits. Guests can dine from the
main menu or arrange for a wine tasting.
Temptation will close August 10 and
reopen October 10 as the Gasparilla Inn
celebrates its 100th season. Diners can still
enjoy lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
and dinner from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday
through Saturday until the restaurant
closes for its summer break. Reservations
are recommended. Temptation is located at
350 South Park Ave., on Boca Grande. For

Showy, colorful plants


at Caladium Festival


By NORMA RIZER
SPECIAL TO LET'S Go!

Lake Placid, Fla., is a bit off the radar
of most of the rest of the state, but each
year, thousands of people crowd into the
small town to help celebrate the beauty
of the plants they supply to the rest of
the country caladiums. Lake Placid
is known as the"Caladium Capital of the
World"for good reason; up to 95 percent of
garden caladiums are grown and shipped
from this central Florida berg.
This year, the Caladium Festival will
begin on Friday, July 26, and continue
through Sunday, July 28. Caladiums are
the star of the show, but there is plenty
to do and see for all. There are caladiums
everywhere, as the town goes all out for
the festival, planting in every available
nook and cranny. In addition to the plants,
this festival offers art, entertainment,
competitions, history, classic cars, food and
even airboats and swamp buggies.
There is no doubt that if visitors are
unaware of caladiums, they will certainly
recognize them from then on. Caladiums
are plants with showy, colorful leaves
on slender stems that grow from tubers
during the hottest part of the year. Colors
vary from reds and pinks to green and
whites with many different patterns.
Plants and bulbs will be available for
purchase throughout the festival; most
visitors cannot resist purchasing at least
a few to try at home. They make dramatic
accent plants and are outstanding when
planted in a group.
Visitors are offered bus tours of the
caladium fields; the 90-minute trip is also
routed through the community to view the
lovely plants in commercial and residential


E/N/C/V' July 24-30, 2013


landscaping. For more information about
caladium farming and production, a free
video about the industry is offered at the
Chamber of Commerce.
The main part of the festival is held
downtown, in Stuart Park. Caladiums in
every form stretch as far as the eye can
see. Plants and tubers are just the begin-
ning. There are also arts and craft vendors,
many of whom feature caladium-related
themes. Jewelry, ceramics and yard art can
be found here, as can T-shirts and posters
featuring the winning caladium-themed
design from the previous year. A variety
of tasty festival food provides sustenance
ranging from drinks and desserts to meals
and snacks. Beer is served at the festival
and a local winery brings samples and
bottles for sale.
Fine art and floral arrangements
featuring caladiums are found nearby at
the Caladium Arts & Crafts Cooperative, a
local retail store featuring arts and crafts
from local artists. The arts and crafts mecca
boasts one of the largest showrooms in
central Florida.
Just down the street from the Caladium
Co-op is DeVane Park; on Saturday, the
park will be filled with classic cars and
motorcycles for the area's largest car
show. On Sunday, the park will host the
airboat and swamp buggy show, featuring
boats, personal watercraft and, of course,
airboats and swamp buggies.
Lake Placid is a destination definitely
worth a day trip. The festival will be
open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and
Saturday, July 26 and 27, and from 10 a.m.
to 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 28. Located on
U.S. Highway 27, Lake Placid is accessible
from either coast in less than 90 minutes.

modations and plenty of local restaurants,

GO THE ARTS


* ,,:i'.
".....,.........................'...'..'


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
s %1 ( iI i I


Lemon Bay Playhouse, Englewood's only
community theater, offers seven Season
Productions, four Showcase Productions,
a Fifth Annual Shorts Aloud Festival and a
Reader's Theater. Lemon Bay Playhouse's
goal is to make live theater available
and affordable, and nearly every task is
performed by volunteers: actors on stage,
workers backstage, special events orga-
nizers, and house and box office managers.
All are dedicated to providing high quality
public performances to Englewood and
surrounding communities.
Rosie Tremo and her selection committee
read 24 plays submitted for consideration
prior to Playhouse's 27th season."We
wrote reviews for all 24 plays,"commented
committee member Paul Hyatt."It's impor-
tant to maintain balance. Comedies produce
rousing audience acclaim, but we also
enjoy the challenge of promoting dramas
and mysteries."After careful discussion the
committee chose seven plays."Sinners,"a
black comedy written by Norm Foster, is
scheduled to run first. In his notes Hyatt
wrote:"'Sinners' is the best comedy we've
read yet."
"Sinners"will be directed by Michele
Strauss and is scheduled to run from
Sept. 4 through 22. In the play a store
owner is found in the arms of a local


minister's wife and attempts to flee the
scene.
"Sinners"will be followed by Neil Simon's
"The Good Doctor,"a comedy directed by
Carole Kleinberg on Oct 23 through Nov. 10.
This play involves a feisty old woman, a father
who takes his son to learn the mysteries of
sex, a crafty seducer and a fun"unending."
A third comedy, "A Christmas Cactus" by
Eliot Byerrum, will be directed
by Bob LaSalle just in time for
Christmas from Dec. 4 through
22. Private investigator, Cactus
O'Riley delivers small miracles
and takes a second chance on
love. From Jan. 22 through
Feb. 16, Dan Higgs will direct
"The Last Romance'a comedy
by Joe DiPietro where a
widower regains happiness
that seemed all but lost. "A
Touch of Danger,"a mystery by
Francis Durbridge and directed
by Matt McCord, is scheduled
for Mar. 12 through April 6. A
novelist returns to his London
apartment to read a news-
paper account of his violent
death. From April 30 through
May 18"The Four Poster"
byJan de Hartog will be
directed by Ron Bupp. This The Shakespe
comedy is a moving account Charlie Tyler (
ofa husband and wife's life Ruth Shaulis,


from their wedding night until they leave
their home 35 years later. The last play of
the season is scheduled from June 11-29.
"The Heiress" by Ruth and Augustus Goetz
is a drama that will be directed by Leanne
Hanson. An aristocratic, but shy and plain
young woman is wooed by a handsome,
penniless suitor. Her father threatens
disinheritance.

Check out



American



Moderns at


The Ring


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
On entering the Searing Gallery at The
Ringling to see"American Moderns: 1910-
1950; from O'Keefe to Rockwell,' one
might get a feeling of darkness in much
of the work on display.
"The first half of the 20th century
is perhaps the most compelling and
dynamic epoch in American history," Ring-
ling curator of modern and contemporary
art, Matthew McLendon said. "Two wars
and the Depression occurred in those
years."
Fortunately, the paintings by O'Keefe
and Rockwell, the two artists whose
names are incorporated in the title of
the show, are bright and, in the case of
Rockwell, even witty.
They are not alone but the dark themes
seem to stand out because of the way the
show, which is on loan from the Brooklyn
Museum, was hung.
"The Brooklyn asked that it not be
hung chronologically but thematically,"
McLendon said.
In placing cubist works by the likes
of Max Weber, Marguerite Thompson
Zorach and Albert Gallatin in the same
gallery seemed to emphasize the dark-
ness despite the warm-toned applewood
sculpture by Warren Wheelock -
Abstraction #2 being given its own
case and light in the center of the gallery.
Shades of red appear in the cubist
works of Marsden Hartley and Stanton
Macdonald Wright, but they are modu-
lated reds, toned down. The colors are
warm but not bright. That they were
created primarily during World War I,
could well have influenced the color
schemes.
O'Keefe's works provide cheerful notes.
Her"Black Pansy & Forget-Me-Nots,
painted in 1926, which was after the war
and before the Great Depression, is an
example. The center of the black pansy is
bright yellow and the little blue flowers
also feature touches of that happy color.
It is at once real and also a product of the
artist's imagination.
Painted two years later, O'Keefe's"
2 Yellow Leaves"are simplified and
magnified something she became
known for.
In 1939, O'Keefe created "Fishhook
From Hawaii;'a somewhat smaller work


than normally attrib-
uted to the artist
but with the fishing
line coiled to become
three magnifying
lenses, topped by a
colorful feather lure wrapped around the
fishhook, it still reflected her"blown-up"
style. Although never used by Dole Pine-
apple, it was a commissioned work.
The fourth O'Keefe in the show is more
a study in color than form although it
does feature a squiggly green line that
breaks up areas of the canvas. According
to information in the show's catalog,
the line represents the road around the
artist's home in a small town north of
Santa Fe.
The works of Anna Mary Robertson
"Grandma" Moses are simply charming.
"Early Skating;' painted in 1951, when
she was 91, depicts children skating on a
small pond on a farm. The white farm-
house is to the right and red barns and
other outbuildings are to the left and
center of the canvas. She had a simple
style that charmed people in mainstream
America as well as in the White House.
Other "happy" pictures in the show are
"Vision of New York" by Newell Convers
(N.C.) Wyeth and "The Tattoo Artist" by
Norman Rockwell.
Wyeth's work depicts two elfish
characters who have climbed up into a
treetop. The man on the lower branch is
smoking and the other is gazing through
the balloon of smoke at the New York
of Washington Irving, circa 1809. It was
painted in 1926.
"The Tattoo Artist" is vintage Rockwell,
with an outlandish rear view of the artist
bending forward to cross out yet another
woman's name on the arm of a sailor and
to add the name Betty to the list on the
man's upper left arm. It seems as though
this sailor truly had a girl in every port,
judging by the names.
Not as humorous yet quite moving are
the works labeled "Engaging Characters"
in the show's catalog. Painted by various
artists in a range of styles, each work
features an arresting face or, in some
paintings, group of people.
Color and caricature are part of this era,
from cold to warm, and so is perspective.
Several artists used a reverse-perspective
technique in which vanishing lines of a
road or building seemed to be in front of

Artists may find some of these tech-
niques and styles worthy of a visit to the
show but so should anyone interested in
the history of America for that too is an
important element in this traveling show.
The show also should be of interest to
those fascinated with the development of
the Sarasota area as an art center, some-
thing that occurred at roughly the same
time and accelerated with the creation of
the museum by real estate developer and
circus owner John Ringling.

Karen and her late husband, Mark Smith,
started collecting for Toys for Tots 12 years
ago in their home. Instead of a bottle of
wine, they asked guests to bring a toy
or check donation. Karen appeals for the
public's help to carry on Mark's dedication
to making sure every child in Charlotte
County receives a Christmas toy.
Karen claims the Loony Bin is the largest
fundraiser for Toys for Tots in Charlotte
County. "We need the community's help.
Any donations from area businesses will
be greatly appreciated," Karen said. "It's for
the kids."
Melissa Marshall, Sandy Davis and Kathy

,.Blue Heron Pines:


A Natural Wonder


If you want to play golf in less time and with I"'.I i I1
less frustration, Blue Heron Pines in Punta Gcida I,
a course well worth considering. An 18-hole, par-60
executive course, Blue Heron Pines is semi-private,
offering both memberships and pay-as-you-go daily
fees. Both walkers and carts are permitted at all
times of the day.
"It's an exciting, fun track to play, yet it's easy to
walk it," said Bill Itschner, manager of the course
and surrounding community. An abundance of water
throughout the course makes it both challenging and
beautiful. Maintaining the course's rustic, natural
beauty is something Itschner has worked hard to


achieve.
Like other area courses, Blue Heron Pines was hit hard by Hurricane Charley in 2004. But unlike
other courses that had all the damaged trees removed, Itschner insisted on keeping the bent and
downed trees that were still living. The result is a course with trees that are natural wonders in their
own right. Some are so bent you can't help but know which way the hurricane blew. Others stretch
across the ground, determined trees with winding trunks exploding into robust foliage. Purple
jacarandas surround creeks and ravines, while several stone formations add to the eclectic mix. Blue
Heron Pines sits in the midst of a community by the same name. The original, nine-hole course was
called Emu Lakes, and the community Casa del Mar. While many courses have alligators on their
grounds, Emu Lakes actually had emus. Thirteen years ago, American Land Lease bought the
community and golf course, renamed it, and added the front nine holes. Three greens have been
rebuilt since Hurricane Charley hit, and two more will be rebuilt this year. "It's an ongoing process
that will continue until all the greens have been rebuilt," said Itschner. The clubhouse was also rebuilt
and expanded to 9,000 square feet, with a commercial kitchen, deck, game rooms and meeting rooms
added around the original center clubhouse. In addition to the golf course, the community includes
shuffleboard, horse shoes and an aqua driving range that utilizes floater golf balls. Lessons are also
available. Blue Heron Pines golf course is located at 29225 S. Jones Loop Road in Punta Gorda. For

LIVE MUSICGO


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT


When Ralph Minnick moved to South-
west Florida less than a year ago, he
began his search to form a brass quintet.
A graduate of the University of Michigan,
Minnick has been playing the trumpet
for 76 years. He played with the Fairfax
Symphony Orchestra in Virginia for 11
years, for several bands and was leader of a
quintet in Hanover, Pa.
Minnick found four talented musicians
and is the leader of The Tamiami Brass
Quintet. The group has been playing
together for about six months, and is busy
performing at various venues. Recently,
the quintet performed at South Port
Square, an independent living facility in
Port Charlotte, and at the First Annual
Firefighter MDA Ball at the Charlotte
Harbor and Convention Center. Also, it has
performed at the Venetian Gardens Retire-
ment Community in Venice, and North Port
Library for National Library week.
On August 18 at 4 p.m., the quintet will
perform at Hope Lutheran Church, 14200
Hopewell Ave,, Port Charlotte, followed by
a spaghetti dinner and jazz Mass.
Trombone player, Jen Schmeiser, is the
youngest and only female quintet member.
She has been playing the instrument for 25
years."My dad owned a music store. I didn't
choose the trombone; my dad chose it for
me'"she said. Schmeiser also performs with
the Charlotte County Big Band, Ingroov Jazz


Band, North Port Symphony, North Port
Concert Band and at the Sarasota Opera
House.
John Johnson plays the tuba with the
quintet, and also with the North Port
Concert Band and the Stein Swingers. He
is the director of the Charlotte County Big
Band, and the new director of music at
Hope Lutheran Church.
Chris Kockritz, started playing the French
horn at age 14, and then in a U.S. Navy
band. After he was discharged from the
Navy, Kockritz worked for the Cincinnati
WaterWorks in Ohio, and retired from his
supervisor of operations position. "When
we moved to Florida, I ordered a horn
online. My wife couldn't believe it. I hadn't
played in 32 years" Kockritz said. "I'm
happy to be playing again:"
Trumpet player, Dennis Johnson, claims
he's a 'comeback player .Similar to Kockritz's
story, Dennis played in high school and
college. "I put the instrument away when I
was in the Navy, but picked it up again
35 years later. I've been playing for 10 years
now, and it's good to enjoy something
during retirement," Dennis stated.
The quintet performs folk, jazz, ragtime,
patriotic, light classical and traditional
music. It is available for concerts and
recitals, church services and religious
ceremonies, and corporate and private
events.
For bookings, contact Minnick at
rmin512254@verizon.net or call
717-965-3162.

The Tamiami Brass Quintet performed at South Port Square, an independent living facility
Sin Port Charlotte. Residents tapped their feet to many selections including the quintet's
' rendition of'American Revolution War Medley, a compilation of patriotic songs.

Top of Billboard Chart on July 24

1960 "I'm Sorry" by Brenda Lee
1966 "Hanky Panky" by Tommy James and the Shondells

'80s

1985 -"A View to a Kill" by Duran Duran


Sweet Inspirations
Great song ideas come from many places and here are a few: "Space Oddity"
(David Bowie, 1973). Bowie was inspired by the 1968 Stanley Kubrick film "2001:
A Space Odyssey." "Liar, Liar" (The Castaways, 1966). A one-hit wonder song with a
catchy organ riff. The St. Paul, Minnesota, garage band took the simple lyrics from
the playground chant "liar, liar, pants on fire." "Jessie's Girl" (Rick Springfield, 1981).
Rick had a crush on a girl in his art class until another man, named Gary, dated
her first. He first tried writing the song as "Gary's Girl" but it didn't work, so Gary
became Jessie. "Two Lovers" (Mary Wells, 1962). The Motown singer appears to be
talking about two different men that she loves but it's actually about one man with
a split personality. "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown"(Jim Croce, 1973). Leroy Brown was a real
person that Croce met while they were in the army together, stationed at Fort Dix.
Both were going to school to become telephone linemen. The lyrics also describe a
"junkyard dog,"which was very real. "Welcome To The Jungle" (Guns 'n"Roses, 1988).
This heavy metal classic is about life on the streets of Los Angeles along with the
dangers people face.




Last week, this musical trivia question was asked: In the late 1960s, singer/songwriter
Johnny Cash had two best-selling albums recorded live at which two California prisons?
Answer: Folsom and San Quentin Prisons. The first reader to get it right was
Gary Thomas of Port Charlotte.
This Week's Question: "Can't Buy a Thrill,"'Aja"and "Pretzel Logic"were all popular
'70s albums by this jazz-oriented rock band whose top single was "Rikki Don't Lose That
Number." Who are they?

If you think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat iasun-herald.com no later than
noon this Friday, and we'll publish your name as the winner with the correct answer in next

What is it that Crystal


does as a Service Dog?


By DAWN PENWELL

As not all dogs have what it takes to become
a service dog I want to share with you some of
the"jobs"that Crystal is held responsible for.
We do, however, have to remember that any
service dog is still a dog and like you and I, they
too need down time and to be able to take off
that jacket, you know, like after a very hard
day of work you just need to cut loose once in a
while. Well, so does Crystal.
Once a service dog is trained and placed with
its person it is never really off duty. Crystal's
job does not end when she gets home and
the jacket comes off. She will still stay tuned
in to Sue. To be honest most of her duties are
in the home and her work is never fully seen,
felt or understood by most people. Crystal's
vocabulary is also amazing. Each command she
has been taught has a meaning and purpose.
Hervocabulary will continue to expand as she
learns Sue's needs beyond what she has already
been taught. And to think that Crystal is only
about 18 months old! Remember though, each
service dog has many duties and responsibili-
ties that apply to the specific person and their
disability, needs and lifestyle. Sue and Crystal's
story is an individual one, and the things Crystal
does for and with Sue are for Sue's specific
issues.
Sue has to weara leg brace and use a cane
as well. Her balance is such that she could go
down at any time even with these aids. Getting
up from a chair, walking on uneven terrain or
just bending over is very hard for Sue. This is
one area that Crystal's abilities come into play.
While walking Crystal wears a special harness.
It is much like the one a seeing eye dog wears
as the handle is sturdy. Crystal has to be able to
read Sues gate, know when to"brace,"(bracing
is when the dog holds its standing position
and takes the persons weight to stabilize that
person),when to pull to counter Sues gate and
when to stop. Another one of Crystal's jobs is
to"get"various things like keys, Sue's cane, the
phone or maybe a can that has fallen on the
floor. As Sue also has to use wheelchair at times
Crystal has to also be able to deal with that If it
gets stuck, Crystal pulls it out If it is such a bad


day for Sue that she is in the chair more than
walking Crystal is at her beck and call.
Some dogs are also used as seizure detec-
tion or diabetic detection. These are truly very
special dogs as they are so sensitive they can
"smell"the chemical change in a person's body.
For this they alert the person and try to guide
them to a safe place. Some dogs have also been
trained to not only retrieve the phone but use it
as well orto find and alert another person. This
is where Paul comes into the picture as well. If
something happens to Sue, Crystal will find and
alert Paul.
Crystal can even take things from Sue and
put them on the counter or retrieve things
from the counter to give to Sue. Let's not forget
turning lights on and off or opening doors
either.
So, you see, Crystal is a very busy dog
whether out and about or in the home. I hope
this also helps you understand why it is so
important to never distract a service dog from
its person. Even if the dog seems to be resting
peacefully at its person's side, it is still working.
Always address the person, never the dog.
Before you think about feeling sorry for
Crystal or any other service dog because they
are always working, you also need to know
that they do get down time to play, relax and
do doggie things. They are very loved and well
taken care of physically as well as mentally.
The bonding one does with their service
dog is amazing. Once Crystal and Sue have
been together, learned each other's quirks and
behavior, they will be like one and it will seem
that they read each other's minds. We can
already see how that bond is growing with Sue
and Crystal in just a few weeks'time.
I do hope this leaves you with a better under-
standing of what a service dog is, what it does
and can do and what being or having a service
dog means.

Mozzie's Awesome Adventure


By TOM LOVASKO
PART 5 OF A 7 PART SERIES
Home training for Mozzie's obedience class
went reasonably well this past week. Besides
reviewing his many basic commands, he is
learning a trick that I won't reveal quite yet
One of his classmates might get wind of it and
use it to upstage Mozzie in the final week. Not
that it's anything difficult, like bringing in the
newspaperand opening it to the sports box
scores so I can study the latest Cubs loss.
The fourth week of Mozzie's class training
started with a hard rain shower. Even though
we were inside the Harold Avenue Recreation
Center gymnasium, the noise on the roof was
extremely loud. Mozzie and his classmates
were all a bit frenzied because of the rain,
until it eventually subsided. Ourtrainer,
Diane, had everyone walk their dogs around
in a wide circle, which helped in calming
down the storm-weary pooches.
After the weekly instruction for doggie
pushups (sit-down-stand), the circle walk
continued. Except that the obstacle course was
now part of it and the tubular tunnel was
the first stop. Even with the tube folded to
hula hoop size, Mozzie could not be persuaded
to pass through. If there is such a thing as
"doggie tunnel syndrome"he certainly


Meet


This week's adoptable pet


displayed it Later, the tube was expanded to
the tunnel and Mozzie continued putting on
the brakes at the entrance. Skipping it, Sue
walked him to the hurdle, which he success-
fully jumped over. Then he wove around the
pylons, though somewhat reluctantly.
Back to the tunnel. All of Mozzie's dog
classmates had now passed through it, not
perfectly, but they were entering and exiting.
Before long, three trainers worked to coax
Mozzie into the abyss, while Sue crawled into
the other end. (Her feet were sticking out like
the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz). Even-
tually, Mozzie lured by people, treats and
a toy made it through the tunnel, lifting
his head in pride as the owners and trainers
applauded. Now the parade of trainees could
move again, instead of waiting for The Moz to
move forward. Whew!
As the session wrapped up with Q & A,
we discussed the ongoing issue of Mozzie
taking items that were in his reach. This is
not an uncommon problem. Mousetraps
(flipped upside down under a newspaper)
will frighten most dogs (not hurt them) and
teach them to leave it alone. Noisy tin foil on
countertops is another method, so is shaking
a container of coins or whatever to alert the
dog that grabbing stuff is not cool. Time to
practice!


Hi, my name is Sally
and Iam a 21/2-year-old

loves to be with people. I

you until I've had my fill.

I am a little overweight
but it's nothing that a
good diet and some exer-
cise could not fix. More
than anything, I just need
lots of love.
When my previous
owners decided they could
no longer care for cats,
they brought me and my
cat brother Romeo to
he shelter. He is also
available for adoption,
ut it is not necessary
r us to find a forever
ome together.
I do get along with
other cats, but I could just
as easily live on my own. I
just need love and


affection from humans.
I would make a great lap
cat, I just need a lap!
You should really
consider visiting the
shelterand meeting me in
person. I have a lot of love
to give. I'm still relatively
young so I know I could
make a great pet for many
years to come. Let's get to
know one another.
Sally is available for
adoption at the Animal
Welfare League of
Charlotte County. They are
located at 3519 Drance St.,
in Port Charlotte.
Please pay a visit to our

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine
3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each
row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will
appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The
more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
