PGT hires

sales up

By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
The largest employer in
Venice is once again reporting
solid gains as the economy
improves and the construc-
tion industry awakens to the
demand for new homes and
upgrading existing properties.
In the first seven months of
this year, PGT Industries of
North Venice has hired more
than 300 employees, accord-
ing to Carole Reams, the PGT
senior marketing manager.
The leading U.S. manufacturer
and supplier of residential
impact-resistant windows and
doors now has almost 1,300
employees.
"Sales totaled $62.8 mil-
lion in the second quarter of
2013, representing the highest
quarterly sales since the first
quarter of 2007," said Rod
Hershberger, PGT's president
and chief executive officer.
"Sales grew 35.2 percent over
prior year, primarily driven by
improved market conditions in
the Southeast and Southwest
Florida markets, as well as sales
and marketing programs which
focused on our WinGuard
products."
During the quarter, impact
sales grew 38 percent over prior
year and represented 76 per-
cent of total sales, compared to
74 percent a year ago, he said.
In addition, sales of non-im-
pact products grew 28 percent.
Second quarter sales included

Creating a better community focus of workshops


STAFF REPORT

What kind of community do
we want to live in?
To answer this question,
residents of Sarasota County are
invited to attend one or more
of the "High Touch, High Tech"
Community Workshops being
held in Venice, Sarasota and
North Port during August.
Facilitated by the commu-
nity 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 City of Venice,
City of Sarasota, City of North
Port and the Institute for the
Ages.
"We'll be sharing how high-
tech, high-touch approaches


are contributing to both better
community data and a more
engaged community," said
Colleen McGue, a SCOPE staff
member and one of the work-
shop facilitators. "We hope that
participants will leave inspired
by the power of using commu-
nity data for positive change."
High Tech, High Touch
Community Workshops will be
held on Aug. 20 in Sarasota at
the Robert L. Taylor Community
Complex; on Aug. 23 in Venice
at Venice City Hall; and on
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. For location details
and to register, call SCOPE at
941-365-8751 or visit www.
scopexcel.org.


Workshop participants will
have an opportunity to review
data from last year's workshops
and work together to contribute
their perspectives on the quali-
ties of life that matter most to
them about Sarasota County as
a whole, and their community
in particular.
Attendees will also have the
opportunity to contribute to
the Sarasota County Happiness
Matters CommunityVideo
Campaign. Happiness Matters
is based on the findings of what
makes people happy on an
individual basis, and can tell
people a lot about the kind of
community we want to live in.
SCOPE is currently gathering
Happiness Matters stories in the
form of short videos and invites
residents to submit their own.
To participate, visit www.

Charlotte County loses first deputy to gunfire; suspect found dead


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
A single bullet.
That's all it took
Monday night to end
the life of Sgt. Michael
Wilson, 42, a 21-year
veteran of the Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office
and a husband and
father of three.
He was the first
Charlotte County deputy
to be killed by gunfire in
the line of duty.
Sheriff Bill Prummell
told the media Tuesday
thatWilson was re-
sponding at 8:08 p.m.
Monday to a "domestic
physical in progress"
at a second-floor unit
at the Lakes of Tuscana
Apartments, offVeterans
Boulevard in Port
Charlotte. When Wilson
got to the bottom of the
only staircase leading
up to the unit, he was
met with gunfire from
the top of the stairs, the
sheriff said.
Prummell said that Jay
JaroslavVanko, 49, fired
one shot into Wilson's
chest just above the
deputy's bulletproof vest,
fatally wounding him.
Wilson was able to
call for assistance before
being taken to Peace
River Regional Medical
Center, where he was

the city's population
had finally reached
2,000 following its
lengthy recovery from
the Great Depression
and the end of the
1920s Florida land
boom in 1929.
The steel that will
remain when the
partial demolition is
completed dates to the
1940s when the steel
originally was used in a
transportation depot in
Sarasota before being
purchased by John
Ringling North, presi-
dent of the Ringling
Brothers and Barnum
and Bailey Circus.
When the circus
sold its 200-acre site
in the Bay Oaks area
of Sarasota in 1959 to
downsize to a 15-acre
site at Venice Airport,
construction began on
the arena.
"It was always a gath-
ering site for people,"
Bevington said. "When
it came here, the circus
merged two separate
structures into one."
The larger space was
modeled after the floor
plan of the old Madison
Square Garden in New
York City. It could hold
a three-ring circus with
room for a parade of
elephants around the
perimeter. There were
dressing rooms, offices
of circus managers and
at the east end,open
space where perform-
ers would gather before
making their grand
entrances into the area.
The seating system,
designed by former
Ringling train master
Charlie Smith, could be
raised up to increase
the floor space of the
arena for trade shows
or other purposes.
"Thank God for
Mayor Holic (tie-break-
ing vote at city council
meeting to allow the
partial demolition),"
Bevington said. "We
were two and one-half
years into our project
when they pulled the
rug out from under us
by condemning the
arena.


Sgt. Michael Wilson, a 21-year
veteran with the Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office, was

pronounced dead.
Prummell said speak-
ing with Wilson's wife,
Joanne, "was the most
difficult thing I've ever
had to do in my career,
and I don't wish it upon
anybody."
"All I could do was
offer my condolences,"
he said.
The person who called
911, whom authori-
ties haven't identified,
said Vanko had guns
but they were locked
in a safe. Prummell
said authorities also
learned Vanko was a
competitive marksman.
But there was no indica-
tion Vanko was armed

once owned a lawn ser-
vice in Sarasota County.
Though he didn't have a
criminal record, deputies
had been dispatched to
Vanko's apartment twice
in the past for domestic
disputes.
Monday, the caller had
reported Vanko striking
his wife and 18-year-old
son. Wilson responded as
backup, but he was the
first to arrive.
After shooting Wilson,
Vanko went back into
the apartment, where
his family reported he
shot himself, Prummell
said. However, the
Sheriff's Office did not
want to take chances
going up the sole stair-
case a "fatal funnel,"
according to Prummell
- without visually
confirming the suspect
was dead.
So the CCSO enlisted
the help of the Sarasota

SWAT team, which
provided a tactical robot
that entered the apart-
ment around midnight to
confirmVanko had died.
Prummell said Vanko
apparently suffered a fa-

wound, but an autopsy
would be needed to
confirm that.

NO PAIN


Two firearms were
found at the scene,
but it has not yet been
determined what kind of
gun fired the fatal shot at
Wilson, according to the
sheriff.
Deputies who later
arrived at the scene are
"taking it pretty hard"
and are receiving coun-
seling, Prummell said.
Wilson was most
recently a road patrol
supervisor in District 4,
which covers the most
densely populated
section of Port Charlotte.
He had served stints in
corrections, road patrol,
school resource, street
crimes and narcotics
during his two-decade
career.
"He's very well-round-
ed," said Prummell. "He's
been all over this agency.
(He's) very experienced."
Wilson began his
career with the agency in
1992 the same year as
Prummell.
"I'm going to remem-
ber him as a brother
officer," said Prummell,
fighting back tears. "He's
truly going to be missed.
He was unique, one of a
kind."

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

For five years, the city's
portion of proceeds of
the county-wide 1-cent
sales tax have been used
on a single project within
the city of Venice the
towering community
Performing Arts Center
under construction at
Venice High.
Soon, the money will be
going to a new project, a
major need in the city of
Venice.
The city expects to
make its final payment
to the Sarasota County
School District in the
amount of $1.8 million by
December 31. Extra funds
will go toward refurbish-
ing the school's existing
music building. All
totalled, the city will have
contributed $7.8 million
toward the project, which
will be utilized by numer-
ous local groups.
The penny tax is
collected by the county
and distributed among
governmental entities by
population.


City leaders have
already decided how
to spend the penny tax
proceeds for the next five
years on badly needed
utilities infrastructure,
like new water and sewer
pipes. That construction
is also underway through-
out the city, partly with
additional funds from
annual rate increases.
Use of penny tax
monies will free up the
utilities department to
pay off other infrastruc-
ture bonds as well.
Estimates are the penny
tax will bring in another
$7 million in the next five
years.
As stretched as the
department's budget is,
the city has decided the
department is healthy
enough to withstand a
"water tax" on itself.
Officials were quick to
point out it's not a tax on
residents, but an inter-
governmental tax on the
department's utilities
fund.
"By state law, we can
charge up to 10 percent,"
Finance Director Jeff


Snyder said. "This is
a permissible tax that
charges for an expansive
government."
"It wasn't applied
(before), frankly, because
the utility fund couldn't
afford it. We loaned the
utility fund $6 million. It's
now in a position to pay
that tax."
The city would charge
the utilities fund for
damage of streets and
use of rights-of-way, for
example, Snyder said.
Utilities Director Len
Bramble was consulted
on the decision.
"His comments were,
'this is a team effort,'"
Snyder said. "He recog-
nized the responsibil-
ity to contribute toward
government (expenses)."
City council members
showed concern the pilot
water tax might, some-
how, eventually come out
of rate payers.
"Is that a tax that will be
passed on to consumers?"
asked Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo.
"The short answer,"
replied City Manager Ed


WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2013


Lavallee, "is no. It will not
be passed on."
With the next five
years of capital projects
focused on city utilities,
police and fire building
improvements will have
to wait.
Council Member Bob
Daniels questioned staff
about the prospect of
relocating Fire Station
No. 1 next door to city
hall onto the municipal
airport property, hoping
the airport fund could
pay for the new construc-
tion, instead of taxpayers.
But the city manager and
fire chief said last week
they aren't in favor of the
move.
Lavallee said the fire
chief's main concern was
increased response time.
There are also plans to
move Fire Station No. 2
on Grove Terrace some-
where on the east side
of U.S. 41, to improve its
response time and ease
the disruption of crossing
that busy intersection at
Venice Avenue on each
and every call.

Man arrested after accused of stabbing cars at beach


AVenice man was
arrested Monday for
stabbing the cars of late
night beach-goers.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
Two people were
coming back to their
car Monday evening on
Beach Road in Sarasota
when they came across
an odd sight a young
man was standing next to
a red Chevy facing their
automobile, attacking
the car and beating on
the windows and doors.
The witnesses saw sparks
flying and a metal object
in his hands, attempting
to pull the passenger
door open.
When they asked him
what he was doing, the
man approached them.
They hurriedly got into
their vehicle and locked
the doors, realizing the
man was holding a knife.
He began to attack
their vehicle in the same
manner.
A young woman driv-
ing the car then noticed
the owner of the first car
approaching. She drove
around the parking lot
to lure the man away
from the other car so
that it's owner could
run to it and drive away.
As they drove away, the
man attempted to pull
the door handle of their
car, and started pound-
ing on it.
Deputies arrived to
find Robert Westley

available.

Two charged with
multiple Venice
burglaries
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office has
arrested two people in
connection with a string
of vehicle and residential
burglaries Saturday
morning on Olympia
Road in Venice.
After receiving one
report of a burglary,
deputies responding to
the call located a male
and a female matching
the description of the
suspects. During their


investigation, deputies
identified additional
burglary victims at four
homes on Olympia Road.
The suspects were
identified as Mackenzie
Egeland, 20, 1200 block
of Olympia
Road, and
Brittiany
DuPuis, 23,
200 block
Capri Ave.
During
questioning,
EGELAND the pair
was initially
cooperative
but DuPuis
became
agitated
and Egeland
grew hostile,
throwing a
DUP chair that
damaged
the drywall in the inter-
view room and kicking a
door.
DuPuis later told
detectives the pair had
been smoking "spice,"
also known as synthetic
marijuana.
Both suspects are
charged with six
felonies, including
four counts of vehicle
burglary, one count of
residential burglary and
one count of attempted
residential burglary.
Egeland is also charged


with criminal mischief
for damaging Sarasota
County property.

Handgun returned,
the hard way
A convicted felon
chalked up a string of
charges for stealing
his father's gun, then
lying to police about
it, according to police
reports.
According to a Venice
Police Department
report:
Gregory Scott
McPeek, 42, took the .45
caliber handgun from
his father's
home last
month. After
repeated
attempts to
get it back,
the father
reported
MPEEK the theft of
the firearm
to the Venice Police
Department.
The father had fired
the son from his moving
company a few weeks
earlier and only learned
the firearm was missing
through text messages
and photos of the gun
on a company phone
the son used while
employed. McPeek was
trying to sell the gun for
$120.
A previous felony
conviction for break-
ing and entering in
Massachusetts prevents
McPeek from owning or
possessing a firearm.


Fearing his father
would turn him in,
McPeek tracked down
the man who finally
purchased the gun,
bought it back, and
placed it under the
seat of his father's work
truck. He told the man
to lie to police and say
he never sold him the
handgun.
McPeek then con-
tacted another family
member and told the
person where the father
could find the gun.
Detectives were listen-
ing to the conversation
while at the victim's
residence.
McPeek, of the 200
blockVerona Road,
Nokomis, was charged
with grand larceny of
a firearm, dealing in
stolen property, pos-
session of a weapon or
ammo by a convicted
felon, obstructing justice
and contempt. Bond
was not available on the
contempt charge; bond
was set at $62,500 on the
other charges.

Village Pharmacy expanding with many new services


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

In today's Internet
age, when people get
sick, they use the web to
diagnose themselves. The
process is often called
"Dr. Google."
This habit is creating a
growing trend of busi-
ness for pharmacies,
particularly those smaller,
personalized facilities like
Village Pharmacy at 1095B
North Tamiami Trail in
Nokomis Village Plaza.
Despite the closure of
much of the plaza for the
past three months, Jeff
Young, owner and phar-
macist, is excited be-
cause he is about to start
enlarging the premises
to accommodate addi-
tional inventory, adding
professional seminars,
meetings and personal
consultation facilities.
Acquiring an adjoin-
ing unit providing
1,100 square feet enables
him to remodel parts
of the existing layout.
Entry will remain a single
entrance, and the signage
will be centered on the
front doors, increasing the
focus to the front door.
The enlarged front of


the combined units will
provide additional space
to increase displays of
durable medical sup-
plies, walkers, wheel-
chairs and commodes.
The rear of this new
space will accommodate
the move of the existing
business office and a
storage area.
The area for displays
of natural supplements,
herbals and similar items
will be enlarged. Space
vacated by moving the
offices will become the
new working-on-well-
ness section for seminars
and consultations.
With no intentions
of becoming a national
pharmacy, Young will
continue to add more of
the unique pharmaceuti-
cal grade items from
manufacturers who have
met certain standards in
processing, etc., items
only available to limited
outlets.
He plans to do com-
pounding, customizing
formulations of herbs
and powders for babies,
pets, people aged 45-65,
men's testosterone
replacement, women's
bio-identical hormones
and more. His additional


focus will be on helping
those women reaching
menopause who are
experiencing hot flashes,
mood swings, weight
gain, etc.
Recently, he has been
discussing his collabora-
tive plans with physicians
and nurse practitioners.
New health regulations
could benefit pharma-
cies if more people are
mandated to have health
care, meaning that taking
medications and going to
the doctor may increase.
"Another pharmacy is
coming with the open-
ing of the rebuilt Publix
later this year," he said.
"Combining it with the
existing two national
pharmacies, honestly,
it does not concern me
to any degree. We
moved here in 2006 with
CVS. A couple of years
later, Walmart opened in
Osprey A few years later
Walgreen's opened across
the street, and frankly, I
have just been moving
forward. It has not been a
stellar ride, but I am add-
ing customers and staff."
Nokomis is the busi-
ness office for the Young
Pharmacies, employing
25 people in 3 locations,


SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
Jeff Young, owner and pharmacist of Young Pharmacies, is pictured at his Village Pharmacy,
which he is expanding with a re-opening planned to coincide with the Publix store opening later


this year.

Venice Apothecary at the
hospital and Englewood
Pharmacy. Young has
just hired an additional
staffer, allowing his busi-
ness manager to do a lot
of his work and concen-
trate on upgrading the
company website.
Intentions are for the


contractors, Beechwood
Builders, to complete
his expansion to be
ready for when Publix
re-opens. During the
interim, he continues
business as usual,
including serving retire-
ment communities with
delivery services such as


supplying hospital beds,
wheelchairs, motorized
lift chairs and power
scooters available for
rent by day and month.
For schoolchildren who
have a sports accident
or other injury, he offers
free crutch rentals during
the time they are needed.


With years of experience, artists offer permanent tattooing


Jason Hensley has
tattoos on his whole
body, from his toes to
his neck. Using his 22
years of experience,
he has opened Blue
Water Tattoo Studios,
919 Tamiami Trail
South, Nokomis, next to
Cheetah Flooring.
With colleague William
Morrison, an 8-year
tattoo artist, they provide
customized tattooing
for men and women 18
years and older. Hensley
specializes in Old School
really bright, colorful,
traditional flowers, 1950s
Sailor Terry, black with
white designs.
Using more than
50 colors, tattoos are
permanent and take from
45 minutes to 10 hours. A
standard tattoo machine


is used and for most
customers, the work is
enjoyable, although some
may find it painful and ir-
ritating. With three chairs,
walk-ins are available and
done immediately.
From Chicago, Hensley,
a Gulf War veteran for
five years, became a
painter and bodyman in
a custom car business
before going into tat-
tooing 20 years ago in a
Chicago tattoo shop. In
2011, he opened a store
in Sarasota's Gulf Gate
district before coming to
Nokomis. Store hours are
2 p.m. to 2 a.m., 7 days a
week. Call 941-441-7426.

Pretty in Pink
Next year's Venice
Mainstreet Annual
Fashion Show theme
is Pretty in Pink. The
event will be held at the
Plantation Golf and
Country Club in South
Venice on Feb. 5. Tickets
will likely be available in
December from SunBug,
141 West Venice Ave., and
the Venice Mainstreet
office.


Salon 41 Opens
Lisa Davis, trained
in cosmetology at the
Mohawk Hill Beauty
Academy in New York,
completed the course at
the International Hair
Show in Manhattan at
the Jacob Davits Center.
Working at salons, she
graduated and began a
25-year self-employment,
opening her first of three
salons, Hair Necessities,
in Utica, N.Y.
Eight years later,
moving to Jacksonville,
Fla., where she stayed
for 13 years, she opened
two salons. In March,
she came to Venice and
wanting to continue
self-employment, she
recently opened Salon 41
at 2001 South Tamiami
Trail across from the Ark
Animal Hospital in South
Venice.
It is a full service
family salon provid-
ing cutting, coloring,
perming and eyebrow
waxing. She special-
izes in highlighting and
styling to suit personal
preferences for walk-ins


and appointments. The
salon is open Tuesdays to
Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.,
and Saturdays. Call
941-882-3509.

Top 10 Best
Places To Retire
RealtyTrac recently
released a new report on
real estate investing in
cities that are retirement
hot spots having at least
one-third of the popula-
tion at retirement age
or older. These places
are anticipated to be
the growth sector in the
housing market during
the next 15 years as baby
boomers started retir-
ing in 2011. The trend
is expected to continue
through 2029 as people
retire in greater numbers.
The Venice area was
featured in the top 15 re-
tirement hot spots for real
estate investing based
on price, appreciation
and capitalization rates.
Aspects rated important
to retirees are the aver-
age annual temperature,
annual average daily sun-
shine and cost of living.

Gardens of Venice prepares to open, offers living options


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The growing hub for
larger retirement com-
munities seems to be
centered along Jacaranda
Boulevard with the latest
development, Gardens of
Venice, expected to open
this month.
SouthVenice's appeal
is probably the abun-
dance of shopping and
professional health care
facilities easily accessed
by car, handicapped
vehicle, facility bus and
some within walking
distance.
Gardens of Venice
is scheduled to open
mid-August, providing
residences for indepen-
dent and assisted living.
A single story $12 million
project, it is built on
8.7 acres acquired from
the U.S. Postal Service in
2011 for $1.2 million by
North Port Retirement
Centers Inc.
Located between U.S.
41 and State Road 776,
the entrance is across


from the Venetia
Community.
With planning for a
maximum of 150 units,
the projected initial
construction is 125 units
for independent living
accommodation in
single- and two-bedroom
suites for active retirees.
Assisted living benefits
will be monitored by cer-
tified nursing assistant
services, but skilled care
will not be available.
"It will be the most
beautiful resort living,"
said Zia Butt, CEO &
President of North Port
Retirement Centers Inc.
with head offices in
North Port.
Founded in 1989, the
company operates the
retirement residences
of North Port Pines and
Gardens of North Port
with Harbor View Acres
and Sandhill Gardens in
Port Charlotte.
Gardens of Venice joins
the wide cross section
of similar facilities, the
nearest being the high
rise Jacaranda Trace

standards.
The most comprehen-
sive services for retiring
seniors are provided by

age cost of independent
living in Venice is $2,247
monthly, according

VRMC will see its
1,000th robotic surgery
case later this year.
Eleven doctors operate
using its da Vinci Surgical
System, while five or six
use its MAKO system for
knee and hip procedures.
Dr. Dilip Mathew, a
cardiac electrophysi-
ologist from the Tampa
area transitioning his
practice to Sarasota
County, is working in a
new $1.5 million cardiac
catheterization lab with a
state-of-the-art CARTO3
system that allows him
to see a 3-D image of
his patient's heart. He
performs a procedure
to correct irregular
heartbeats that hadn't
been available in the area
previously.
"Working in a small
hospital in many cases is
more advantageous," he
said.
The turnaround time
on the equipment is
faster, allowing him to
treat more patients,
and requests for new
equipment get a quicker
response.
Dr. Julie Coleman,
a neurologist, was
recruited in 2008 to
start VRMC's Stroke


Care Center. It was
accredited by the
Agency for Healthcare
Administration and
the Joint Commission,
oversight agencies, the
following year.
"I actually think when
CHS comes to see the
hospital, they're going to
say, 'Wow!'" she said.
For example, she
said, VRMC has inter-
ventional neurologists
available 24 hours a
day to remove a blood
clot from the brain of a
stroke patient.
"Nobody else has that,"
she said.
Given all that, these
three doctors aren't
concerned about what
the merger means, and
they don't think there's
much anxiety among the
rest of the staff either.
"To say there's some-
thing wrong here, with
the hospital, with the
staff or the morale, we

don't see that," said
Coleman.
Ercolani said outside
events like the merger
have no impact on him.
"I don't care," he
said. "I still showed up
for work today, and
I'm going to show up
tomorrow."
In fact, if the merger
has an effect on patient
care, it's likely to be
mostly positive, they
said.
CHS, with more than
200 hospitals, will be
in a better position to
fund capital projects
than HMA, according
to Wozniak. CHS also is
more advanced in imple-
menting best practices
from other hospitals,
and it measures quality
across more services, he
said.
Mathew went through
a merger at a Tampa
hospital and said he
saw few changes, other

than the streamlining of
the purchasing process,
though he acknowl-
edged, "I'm sure there
will be some negative
aspects, like there are
with all mergers."
Ercolani said the merg-
ers he knows of have all
worked out for the better.
Coleman added that
when she learned of the


merger, she saw it as a
good thing.
"There is no way, now
and in the future, that
the little guy can survive
anymore," she said.
Wozniak said that the
consolidation of hos-
pital systems has been
forecast for years and
is starting to become a
reality. What counts, he


said, isn't who owns the
facility but who staffs it.
"We're all good hos-
pitals," he said. "It's
the practitioners in the
hospital that make the
difference. We have
doctors at a level that
you're not going to find
anywhere else."

OUR VIEW


We like county's early plans to help the homeless


On any given day six years ago, a
visitor to downtown St. Peters-
burg might have encountered
panhandlers on the street corners,
and homeless people sleeping on the
sidewalks, drinking beer or relieving
themselves in public. The sidewalks
had such a strong smell of urine the
city public works had to spray them
with disinfectant.
The problems in St. Pete became
so extreme that city leaders turned
for help to a national consultant,
Robert Marbut of San Antonio, Texas.
Following his suggestions, local
leaders established a large homeless
facility that provided shelter, food and
counseling services.
The approach is working. The situ-
ation is better for residents, visitors,
businesses, the homeless themselves
and the people who advocate on their
behalf.
Downtown Sarasota is far from


St. Pete's situation. Nevertheless,
homelessness in the city has become
so obvious and so difficult that it is
forcing Sarasota County to address it
better. Sarasota County and its cities
are being asked to sign an agreement
to bring Marbut back to Southwest
Florida to shepherd a new community
approach to the problem.
It is worth the $40,000-plus cost
and, we can only hope, will be a big
step forward.
The city of Sarasota is the tip of
the iceberg. Homelessness exists all
around us, not just in the big city.
On any day, you can see home-
less men sitting on benches be-
neath shaded trees on Dearborn
Street in Englewood. The North
Port Coalition for the Homeless
and Needy Children hears talk of
homeless camps. The Suncoast
Partnership to End Homelessness
served more than 7,000 people in


Sarasota and Manatee counties in
May.
In Charlotte County, the Homeless
Coalition serves nearly 180 meals
per day and operates a 52-bed family
shelter.
Monday morning, 15 adults repre-
senting nearly 45 people who showed
up at the Jubilee Center, a food pantry
and outreach ministry at St. David's
Episcopal Church headed by parishio-
ner Pat Knox.
"We've tripled the number of people
coming in," she said. "This is the worst
I've seen in years."
Knox supports the new effort in
Sarasota County, but cautioned, "This
is not something that will happen
overnight."
Yes, it will take patience.
Realistically, we're not going to "end"
the problem. But local governments,
community and faith-based orga-
nizations can do better, if Marbut's


experience is a guide. We need a
focused action plan, a commitment,
money and manpower to make it
work.
"We all know what has to be done,
but we can't do it alone," Knox said.
No doubt. Also, keep in mind that a
facility offering showers, meals, shel-
ter and services is needed in South
County, as well as the city of Sarasota,
where problems are most noticeable
right now.
We're pleased to see support
coalesce behind Marbut and his
ideas. As always, the toughest part
will be the execution of a plan, but it's
morally right to pursue the goals and
it's possible to come much closer to
attaining them.
As we've said before, local govern-
ment should be there to help, but
success will only come with public
and private organizations working
together.


It was an honor to

celebrate local businesses


There was more than
2,100 years of business experi-
ence represented in our Business
Matters magazine this year.
That is the good news. The
great news is we managed to
get over a thousand years of
that experience in one room
for a celebration of business
longevity in our community.
There was music, food,
beverages and a real sense of
camaraderie as the people rep-
resenting these years of service
mingled throughout the room.
We watched with amazement
as this group interacted, sharing
fond memories of the past and
raising glasses to the future.
Our entire staff was quite
pleased to play host for such a
prestigious group of people.
We wanted to recognize the
businesses for their loyal ser-
vice to the area. Mary Morris,
the Venice Art Center's execu-
tive director, partnered with us
to provide the venue while Sue
Flynn of Java Caf6 and Catering
provided the food. Keeping
the crowd lively was Barbara
Rothman who entertained us
on piano for the evening.
This event was a first for us,
and we were jittery over a few
things. First, would there actu-
ally be people at the event?
Secondly, could we hold their
attention, and finally, would it
be a success?
We did not come empty-
handed to the event; in fact, we
awarded plaques touting years
of service to each business rep-
resented in our magazine. Please
look around the community for
these plaques and congratulate
the people that work so hard to
make our lives better.


We are pleased to report
there were, in fact, many
people at the event. We held
their attention for the most
part, and from all reviews, it
turned out to be a success.
It was truly an amazing time
with a truly amazing group of
people with such talent.
We could not ask for a
better turnout to our first ever
Business Matters reception,
and we are indeed honored to
have presented awards to each
business represented. I can
only imagine how much more
fun we will have next year.
From the entire staff of the
Venice Gondolier Sun, we say
thank you to all the businesses
in our community.
It is our belief that your local
newspaper is more than a lead-
ing source of grass root news.
Your local newspaper does more
than link businesses to consum-
ers. It is also more than a TV
book, magazine or any other
specialty product we deliver.
Your local newspaper is the
fabric that connects everyone
in the community, not by just
the content of our paper but by
sponsoring local events. Giving
advice on marketing, advertis-
ing or selling is our duty.
We give space in our product
to those charities that help
the less than fortunate in our
community so that their needs
can be addressed. We tell the
stories of the communities we
serve, we produce the news
this community generates.
We are the constant source
of information, education and
entertainment and have been so
for many years. There are those
who say the newspaper is a thing
of the past. Today is Tuesday as
I write this, and we will hit your
driveway on Wednesday.
I say that makes us a thing
of the future, and I will never
believe otherwise. How do I
know this to be true, you may
be thinking?
Well, we hosted a party the
other night and 1,000 years of
experience showed up. That is
how I know.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


We have right to same
weapons as police

Editor:
I was enlightened by the
book "To Keep or not to
Keep" written by Tim and
Chuck Baldwin and by the
"Magdeburg Confession"
written in 1550 AD and
recently translated by Mathew
Colvin. Both have shed new
light for me on our Second
Amendment.
Too many people are
compliant as government
(federal and state) pass uncon-
stitutional laws restricting
armaments to citizens. They
believe they will not be
affected and that it doesn't
apply to them. Christians
especially rely on the Bible
verses of "turning the other
cheek" or "love one another"
and ignore the principles of
protection, preservation and
proportionality.
Natural law/God's law
confirms the right of self-
defense. In Jesus' day, the
sword used by Peter was
similar in all respects to the
swords carried by the Roman
soldiers. Today, we must be
armed proportionately to
protect ourselves, our families,
our neighbors and our country
against enemies both foreign
and domestic.
To not defend opens the
door to un-checked violence.
We must "resist evil" whether
from our own government or
local criminals.
We expect our armed forces
to protect us on the battlefront
using weapons similar to those
carried by our enemies. On
the home front, we the people
are restricted from owning
weapons similar to the police.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office has automatic rifles and
under Homeland Security and
the Department of Defense
may purchase military
weapons not available to the
people.
We never would have had a
country if the people fighting


the Revolutionary War were
not armed as proportionately
as the British Troops they were
fighting.
Is only the government to be
trusted? Are "we the people"
so untrustworthy that govern-
ment has made it a crime
for us to possess legitimate
tools of self-defense such as
semi-automatic rifles with
necessary magazines. Only
the semi-automatic rifle and
greater will protect our people
from tyranny and preserve our
freedoms.
When the people are
proportionately armed, it
deters the tyrant's willingness
to use deadly force against the
people.
Those who surrender their
weapons to the government
and choose not to provide
defense and protection for the
innocent (currently we are all
considered guilty until proved
innocent) will carry as much
guilt and blame as those who
carry out the orders of the
tyrant.

A'thank you'to the
woman who helped me

Editor:
I would like to say a big
thank you to the young
woman who helped me when
I locked my keys in my car
at the Walmart gas station.
After asking a few people and
calling the Sheriff's Office
to ask for help, she stepped
forward.
In this day and age, you do
not find many people willing
to help.
A very big thank you.

Here is the truth
about housing data

Editor:
Thank you Gondolier for


the July 17 "County property
value increase first since
'07" containing data on the
housing market. I often read
that the local housing market,
and the economy in general,
are doing well.
In a local daily, I even
read that there are signs of
another housing "bubble'
starting and that the housing
inventory (number of homes
offered for sale) is getting too
low.
Notwithstanding, if the
data is interpreted correctly
and in context, a not-so-rosy
picture emerges. According
to the Gondolier news report,
"The county's total taxable
property value for 2013
came in at $40,791,927,760
compared to $39,141,627,698
last year," an annual increase
of 4.22 percent.
What is far more important
to note, however, is that
"property values were more
than $80 billion" before the
Great Recession. Today's
home values still remain at
only half repeat, half- of
what they were a handful of
years ago.
Has anyone realized that
the housing inventory is so
low because thousands of
people who are eager to sell
do not dare list their homes
at such low prices? They
wouldn't get enough to even
pay off outstanding mortgage
balances owed.
If anyone tells you the
housing market, and the
economy in general, is doing
well, don't believe it. The
sad reality is that we have a
very long way to go before
we get out of this economic
nightmare.
In this Great Recession,
the economic recovery is the
slowest and longest in our
nation's history.

Too many small
things become
controversial
Editor:
I was not surprised to
see the Venice Gondolier
article about revisiting
the exterior color of
Pineapple's restaurant.
It seems nothing is
ever resolved in Venice.
Repetition of trite
issues such as this, the
number of weekly trash
pickups, occupancy of
prime parade viewing
spots and the like are
embarrassing.
Next, shark fins on a
building will be a front
page controversy.
We citizens and
leaders must grow up
and stop fighting the
local businesses who
offer new sights and
venues to Venice. They


are investing money
to enhance our city.
We all have individual
preferences but should
welcome variety and
change and support it.
Tourism will thrive as
sightseers enjoy finding
something new and
unique to visit.

Legislature shouldn't
regulate businesses
this way
Editor:
I just received notifica-
tion from Tallahassee
that House Bill 7005
has passed. This bill has
many facets to it but
it is all about massage
therapy and massage
establishments.
Most of it is just
common sense require-
ments except for one
new law. With this new
law, I can no longer run
my business between
the hours of midnight


and 5 a.m. Now, I have
never run my business
at that hour but what if
something occurred that
caused me to run in to
take care of a client in
need?
Well, if I did that and
got caught, the first
offense would be a first
degree misdemeanor
but the next offense
would be a third degree
felony punishable by up
to five years in prison
and a $5,000 fine. So,
even though I've paid
for my licenses, insur-
ance fees, permits, and
rents, and have never
done anything illegal or
questionable, the Florida
Legislature has decided
when I can and cannot
run my legal business.
I am appalled at the
ability of a so called "for
business" legislature
coming out and robbing
me of my ability to earn
money and run my
business without undue
government oversight
and regulations. I cannot

Throwing money
at the problem
does help
Editor:
A writer criticized my
recent letter stating that
we can end profiling by
improving education
and job opportunities for
blacks. Of course, decent
education is needed for
all our young people to
make them better, more
productive adults.


The writer said that
throwingn) money at the
problem" of education
won't help. Yet wealthier
people have long demon-
strated that throwing
money at their own
children's educational
deficits is a successful
tactic. They move to
districts with the best
public schools, or send
the children to private
and college prep schools.
If the children get low
grades because of low
ability, laziness or lack
of parental involvement,
parents hire tutors for
$40 an hour.
The writer then
complains about
unfairness of affirma-
tive action. As college
approaches, affluent
families often hire tutors
to boost their children's
SAT scores. Colleges use
the SAT score to select
students with the best
long-term potential.
Permitting minorities
to be admitted with
lower scores under affir-
mative action just levels

the playing field for those
from poor families. Of
course, this also gives
minorities from wealthy
families an unfair and
unnecessary advantage.
The best defense against
such nonsense is a great
education for every child.
The writer claims
that it will always be
difficult to get teachers
to work at schools
with unruly, poorly
performing students.
The job requires teachers
who enjoy gaining the
respect of students, and
then inspiring them to
perform.
Paying them what
they are worth at failing
schools, say 50 percent
more than teachers at
the best schools like
Pine View, would attract
plenty of qualified
applicants.
Whenever I read about
a failing school, I think
it is costing me plenty
by converting potential
taxpayers into jailbirds.

Indians'ahead of the game' as practice starts


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR
With less than three
weeks separating
Monday's opening of
fall practice and the
Venice Indians' Aug. 23
preseason classic
against Southeast, Head
Coach John Peacock's
task of getting his team
game-ready might seem
daunting.
Fortunately for
Peacock, while most
high schoolers have been
soaking up what's left of
a quickly disappearing
summer, his Indians
spent the dog days
preparing for the upcom-
ing season.
"We're way ahead of
the game," Peacock said.
"We've been working
all summer. We had six
7-on-7 games. We've just
picked up from our last
week in spring. We got
all of our special teams
in because of spring, so
we're way ahead of the
game right now."
Part of that offseason
work consisted of putting
on muscle in the weight
room. Peacock said he
expects his defense -
which recorded a 21-0
shutout over perennial
state power Lakeland
May 24 to benefit
from its commitment to
developing physically.
"We had a lot of iron
men iron men are the
guys who show up every
day," he said. "We were
young at some positions
(last year), so the more
repetitions they get
they're gonna get better.


"There were some
personal gains in a lot
of our lifts," he said.
"(Sophomore middle
linebacker) Ben Chisolm
benched 300 pounds the
last week of summer.
(Sophomore defensive
end) Jerod Hewitt
benched 340, cleaned
300. I think we'll be
better defensively the
first week than we were
against Lakeland."

Position battles
at guard, fullback,
tight end
Competition at a trio
of offensive positions -
guard, fullback and tight
end is already heating
up. Senior guard Clayton
Walker started the spring
game but fellow senior
Jesse Tinkler who
didn't participate in
spring ball has a
chance to earn the start-
ing spot.
At fullback, junior Erik
Imperante has taken
advantage of the op-
portunity that opened
up when senior Ron
Kovalsky went down with
an injury.
Peacock said of
Imperante, "He had
a great summer and
worked his butt off."
The tight end battle
is a three-horse race,
with senior Matt Carlson
and juniors Mohammed
Ibrahim and Deter
Hudson (a Riverview
transfer) vying for the
job.
Practice performance
will determine who


ultimately starts at those
positions, but Peacock
said nobody currently in
a starting role should feel
too comfortable.
"Obviously there's
gonna be competition
everywhere," he said.
"We'll see who wants to
step up when the pads
get on, and go from
there."

Rydecki's
long snapping
improving
Indians kicker/punter
Stone Wilson had a more
difficult job than most
of his fellow specialists
last year, often having
to gather short snaps
on a bounce. The issue
persisted in Venice's
spring game, but Peacock
believes it's a problem
Venice will avoid going
forward, thanks to the
work put in by senior
center/long snapper Bo
Rydecki.
"One thing that's really
improved is our long-
snapping," Peacock said.
"Bo has been to some
camps and he's really
improved his long-snap-
ping, so that will help our
kicking game as far as
timing and protection."

Pair of receivers
called up
Sophomore Jake
Macfarlane and junior
Ben Nicholas were
recently called up to
bolster the wide receiver

:WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2013


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The shockwaves from
Major League Baseball's
latest drug scandal will
soon be felt at high
schools throughout
Florida.
The Florida High
School Athletic
Association (FHSAA) an-
nounced Tuesday it will
ask its 16-person sports
advisory committee
to develop standalone
policies to combat what
the organization consid-
ers to be widespread
use of performance-
enhancing drugs (PEDs)
among Florida high
school student-athletes.
The announcement
came on the heels of
a Miami Herald report
stating that two cur-
rent South Florida
high schoolers and five
recent graduates were
clients of Biogenesis,
the defunct clinic that
allegedly provided PEDs
to prominent MLB
players including Alex
Rodriguez and Ryan
Braun.
"We believe we must
draw a line in the sand
against performance-
enhancing drugs,"
FHSAA Executive
Director Roger Dearing
said during a confer-
ence call Tuesday. "It's


the elephant in the
room that all of us have
known has existed for
some time, but we
may not have been as
vigilant as we should
have been."
The FHSAA imple-
mented a pilot steroid
testing program during
the 2007-08 school year.
Of the 650 student-
athletes


(out of
220,000
state-
wide)
randomly
tested,
only one
tested
positive
for PEDs.
While the
initial


are resources available
where we could help
school systems have an
adequate program."
The FHSAA does
not have the power to
administer drug tests
directly; instead, it
hopes school districts
and schools across the
state which do have
such power will
adopt


"This is not a problem that
has gone away. We have
to make sure we do every-
thing we can to safeguard
our young people."

Roger Dearing,
FHSAA Exexcutive Director
.................... .......... ..... .


testing program was
funded by a $100,000
grant from the state
Legislature, Dearing
said, the idea this time
around is to convince
school districts, indi-
vidual schools, local
businesses and com-
munity members to
figure out ways to raise
the funds necessary to
get the program up and
running.
"I don't think we can
always look to the state
Legislature to say, 'Can
you fund this?'" he said.
"I don't think that's the
answer. I think there


the pro-
cedures
suggest-
ed by the
sports
advisory
com-
mittee,
which
will
begin
develop-


ing a plan when it meets
later this month.
State Sen. Bill
Montford said protect-
ing children is the pri-
mary focus of the state's
revived fight against
PEDs in high schools.
"This is not a
finger-pointing exer-
cise," he said. "It's an
acknowledgment that we
have a problem. And we
need to address this issue
with vigor. If we don't,
the lives of many of our
student-athletes can be
negatively impacted, and
we can't afford that."
Even if school districts


are able to come up
with the money to
fund a comprehensive
program, Dearing ac-
knowledged that testing
only goes so far. None of
the 13 players recently
suspended by MLB for
their involvement with
Biogenesis failed a drug
test this year.
"We won't catch all
of them," Dearing said.
"Professional baseball
doesn't catch all of
them. The issue here is
everyone's education.
The deterrent is the
major thing here.
"This is not a problem
that has gone away. We
have to make sure we
do everything we can
to safeguard our young
people."
Dr. Jennifer Roth
Maynard, an assistant
professor of family
and sports medicine
at the Mayo Clinic
in Jacksonville and a
member of the FHSAA's
sports advisory commit-
tee, agreed that educat-
ing student-athletes
about the health risks
associated with PED use
is more important than
catching users.
"We know this is going
on in high schools," she
said. "Who knows if it's
starting even younger
than that?"

City Council sees red flags in budget


By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER
Venice City Council aired
a number of complaints
about the city's Fiscal
Year 2013-14 budget at a
workshop Monday. Some
of them were even about
the numbers.
Before they heard the
first department head's
presentation, they debated
whether the budget was
truly balanced and had
strong words about chang-
ing the process by which it's
developed.
Mayor John Holic led
off by clarifying that an
amendment to the city
charter he proposed at
the last regular council
meeting to limit budget
increases to the lesser of the
Consumer Price Index or
3 percent- would apply
only to the General Fund,
which is about a quarter of
the city's total budget. If it's
approved on final reading
next week, city residents
will vote on it in November.
But the budget under
consideration, he said,
isn't truly balanced, even
though revenue covers
expenses, because it uses
"fuzzy math." Although it
proposes the same total
millage rate as the previous
year, less is allocated to
debt service and more to
the ad valorem rate that
puts money in the General
Fund.
Combined with an
increase in the value of


TURTLE

When those nests
hatch, Bossman said
she intends to send any
unhatched eggs to the
FWC for DNA analysis.
"That will be the
proof in the pudding,"
FWC researcher Blair
Witherington said. "We
really don't know and


all the real property in
the city, that could mean
a tax increase for a lot of
city taxpayers. It will mean
more revenue for the city,
with spending in some
areas potentially seeing a
significant bump.
"I don't see creep, I see
leap," Council Member
Jeanette Gates said.

Uncracked
Vice Mayor Bob Daniels
complained that City
Council had been asked to
OK the millage rate almost
immediately after receiving
the budget.
"None of us had cracked
the covers," he said. "None
of us."
He also lamented the
lack of energy saving as a
goal in all the city's depart-
ments, which he chastised
for seeking more staff.
"You wonder why we
don't have the money for
raises," he said. "You keep
asking us for head count,
and the pie is only so big.
"To be honest, I'm
very disappointed in this
budget."
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo, defended the
document, which he said
reflected council's goals of
not raising taxes and not
cutting jobs.
"I think staff has done a
great job with this budget,"
he said.
Even so, next year the
process will be different,
according to City Manager

can't be confident about
the tracks."
According to the FWC
website, adult hawksbill
sea turtles can weigh
100 to 200 pounds with
their shell. They get their
name from their "raptor-
like jaws." Hawksbills
feed on sponges, which
researchers describe as
"composed of tiny glass-
like needles, (but) this
potentially dangerous
diet apparently causes


Ed Lavallee.
"We're not going to do
this again," he said. "It
happens to be the history,
but it's a bad history."
In the future, he said,
City Council will have
budget information well
in advance and won't be
asked to set the millage rate
"on faith."
He also said that the
"leap" in expenses Gates
referred to might be a func-
tion of years of cost-cutting.
Although the proposed
budget calls for hiring
11.5 full-time-equivalent
employees, that would take
city staff to 284 workers, 70
fewer than 10 years ago.
Some departments are
functioning with half the
staff they had then, getting
by with shared staff or by
paying overtime.

Raise or cut
Carlesimo and Daniels
agreed that they may soon
have to have a philosophi-
cal discussion about just
how much service city
residents are willing to pay
for.
Daniels said they've
never addressed the issue
of whether all city services
are still valuable. The topic
came up again at the end
of the meeting, when Holic
warned about the possibil-
ity of needing to cut them
so the city can meet its
pension obligations. They
rise about another $500,000
next year.

the turtle no harm."
Hawksbills are "the
most tropical of the sea
turtles," generally found
swimming in lagoons,
reefs, bays and estuaries
of the Atlantic, Pacific
and Indian oceans."
According to the FWC,
they generally are found
off the Florida Keys, and
only "a few nests" are
documented annually
from the Keys to as far
north as the Canaveral


"If we don't keep that in
mind and keep curbs on it,"
he said, "we're going to be
in real, real trouble three to
five years out.
"I think over the next
three to five years we are
going to see some of the
biggest increases in village
we've seen just to support
our pensions. And I hope
I'm wrong when I say that."
"How can you be
wrong?" Gates said. "The
writing is on the wall."
The proposed budget,
Holic said, is based on
Venice being a full-service
city.
"We have to define those
services, and we really do
have to get to a level of ser-
vice that is sustainable," he
said. "The citizens will have
to realize that if there's a cut
in services, that's why."
Carlesimo came at the is-
sue from another direction,
saying he's on council to
do what the majority of his
constituents want.
"All this talk about con-
solidation ... until I hear
a clear mandate from our
citizens that they want to
go farther down this road,
I'm against it," he said.
City Council holds its
second budget workshop
Wednesday, Aug. 7, at
9 a.m. in council chambers
atVenice City Hall, 401
W Venice Ave. The first
scheduled presentation
is from Police Chief Tom
McNulty.

National Seashore, near
Titusville on the state's
east coast.
A hawksbill sea turtle
nesting on Knight Island,
Manasota Key or any
other local Gulf beach
would be "very rare,"
Witherington said.
In a paper published
by The Journal of
Heredity of the American
Genetic Association in
1995, researchers S.A.
Karl, B.W Bowen and


J.C. Avise wrote, "Cases
of marine turtle hybrid-
ization are remarkable
because the fossil and
genetic data indicate that
these species diverged
from a common ancestor
at least 10 million years
ago."
The paper cites
a case of four sea
turtle hatchlings laid
on a Brazilian beach
that originally were
thought to be green


sea turtles, but analysis
showed genetic signs
of loggerhead lineage.
Loggerhead-hawksbill
hybrids also have been
identified.
"The astounding thing
is that these hybrids can
be fertile," Witherington
said, explaining that
most hybrid species
tend to be sterile. "That's
amazing to me as a
biologist."

River Road project may require overnight closure


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
As the $8.7 million
River Road/U.S. 41 in-
tersection improvement
project taking place just
north of North Port hits
the one-third completion
mark, Sarasota County
officials say the project
- which could feature a
short overnight closure
in a little more than two
weeks is now on target
for completion sometime
this winter.
Suzanne Walsh, spokes-
woman for the county's
Mobility Department,
said a closure could
happen during the night
of Aug. 24-25. That would
gives crews the oppor-
tunity to safely install a
245-foot truss that will be
built across the intersec-
tion to house stoplights.
Current plans call for
the truss to be put up as
one piece. Woodruff and
Sons Inc., the contractor
in charge of the project,


is processing the main-
tenance-of-traffic plan
for approval by county
officials.
The rest of the project
includes upgrades to
River Road, approxi-
mately 2,100 feet south
and 3,600 feet north of
U.S. 41, and improve-
ments to U.S. 41, about
1,000 feet west and 1,100
feet east of River Road.
Improvements include
reconstruction of River
Road at the intersection
to four lanes, and the
widening of U.S. 41 to
provide receiving lanes
from River.
Additional improve-
ments include signing
and pavement markings,
drainage improvements
and new streetlights.
New light poles recently
were installed and some
asphalt has been laid
on the stretch of North
River Road leading to the
intersection, which will
have a total of eight lanes
when it is completed.


Crews from Woodruff
will continue clearing the
rights of way and pond
areas in preparation for
excavation of the ponds
and filling embankment
areas this week. Officials
say no road closures are
anticipated at this time,
but daytime temporary
single-lane closures
on northbound and
southbound U.S. 41 will
continue.
When the project is
completed, the intersec-
tion will be expanded to
eight lanes on the north
leg of River Road, and
seven lanes on the south
leg; there will be eight
lanes on the east leg of
U.S. 41, and six lanes on
the west leg.
Officials urge motor-
ists to use caution while
traveling through this
area, as construction
equipment will be
entering and leaving the
roadways. Crews are do-
ing the majority of their
work at night to help


alleviate traffic delays
through the area.
Crews also have
continued their work on
the resurfacing of South
River Road from the
intersection of U.S. 41 to
Pine Street in Englewood.
According to the county,
shoulder grading and
sodding work is expected
to take place during
daytime hours this
week through Friday.
Additional shoulder
reconstruction work also
may take place. This work
will be performed using
single lane closures.
Officials say motorists
should expect moderate
delays as they wait for
their turn to navigate
around the heavy equip-
ment. An alternate route
to Venice or Port Charlotte
is State Road 776.
Construction will be done
in phases, with one road
segment up to 1 mile in
length at a time.

Three rescued after boat capsizes


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Three fisherman were
tossed into the Gulf of
Mexico without life jack-
ets but were rescued by
the Venice Marine Patrol
and another vessel.
The incident happened
at 2:25 p.m. Sunday, ac-
cording to Venice Marine
Officer Paul Joyce, when a
Sarasota County lifeguard
on duty at the North
Jetty witnessed the boat
capsize.
AVenice Police
Department marine


officer was already at the
Crow's Nest dock nearby
and was on-scene within
a minute of the call com-
ing in, Joyce said.
He rescued one man,
while another boat's oc-
cupants pulled the other
two out of the Gulf.
Rescued were Troy
Bobko, Samuel Stone and
Anthony Buciarelli, all in
their 30s, Joyce estimated.
Rough seas hampered
recovery of the boat by
SeaTow and the county
lifeguard, who helped
rig the boat until it was
uprighted.


Bobko, who was driving
the boat, reported to
officers the 17-foot boat
began taking on water
when it slowed. As water
rushed over the back,
Bobko realized the mis-
take and hit the throttle,
pushing forward on top
of a large wave.
The boat "nose bottled
right into the water,"
Joyce said, which cap-
sized the vessel, throwing
all three men overboard.
None were wearing
life jackets, Joyce said,
despite 6-foot seas.
"It was very dangerous,"


Joyce said. "We were deal-
ing with some pretty poor
conditions.
"Whenever you have
a strong outgoing tide
and westerly winds,
that makes the Venice
Inlet very hazardous
to navigate. Having a
small boat makes it a lot
harder.
"Fortunately, everybody
came out of this okay
with no injuries."
It took Seatow and the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office Marine Patrol two
hours to right the boat
due to high winds.


American Eskimo


dog photo wins Pet


Pix contest


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
An American Eskimo,
the four legged variety,
called Sophie, won the
sixth annual Pet Photo
Contest, Raining Cats
and Dogs, sponsored
by Collectors' Gallery &
Framery.
Sophie owned by Judy
Valesky, received most
votes and a framing
from Collectors Gallery
& Framing, 114 South
Nokomis Ave.
It seems the canines
beat the felines in this
contest as the runner-
up was Bella Pachota, a
Brittany submitted by
and owned by Donna
Pachota, who won a
PAWCASSO session with
Stillpoint Studio.
In third place was
China, a German
Shepherd/Border Collie


Mix owned by Jacqueline
Frawley, who won a gift
certificate to Pawprint
Essentials. Pet owners
had been invited to bring
their favorite pet photo
with a description to the
store to enter the free
competition.
However the all-around
winner was Suncoast
Humane Society, which
h received a check for
$970. For each vote cast
in the contest, a ten cent
donation was received.
At the awards ceremony
Claire Berten, represent-
ing the society, was
presented with the check
by Leah Sherman, owner
of Collectors' Gallery &
Framery and organizer of
the competition.
"The dog entries always
far exceed the cats so next
year I hope the cat own-
ers will make a run for it,"
Sherman said.

City Engineer Kathleen Weeden was referred to by the wrong title
and her name was misspelled in the Aug. 3 edition. The Gondolier Sun

Beat a retreat to Hermitage beach read Friday


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Friday, as the sun sets
over the Gulf of Mexico,
the public is invited to
sit back on the Manasota
Beach site of The
Hermitage Artist Retreat
for music and readings by
this summer's STARs.
STARs are an elite
group of teachers who
have won a State Teacher
Artist Residency (STAR)
in a partnership program
of the Hermitage Artist
Retreat and the Florida
Alliance for the Arts.
Winners can spend
several weeks of their
summer break at what
has become a world-
famous artist retreat.
The teachers can work
on plays, musical compo-
sitions or other projects
just as other Hermitage
fellows do during the year.
The teachers arrived at
the Hermitage in mid July.
The work of Polk
County visual artists
Rocky Bridges (Lakeland)
and BeverlyWilliams
(Bartow) can be seen
in their studios during
the open house. The
7 p.m. beach readings
I$ w


will begin with writers
Kristen Rodriguez ofWest
Hollywood and Melanie
Webb of Duval County.
Webb teaches at
Douglas Anderson School
of the Arts in Jacksonville.
Composer and acoustic
guitarist Ramiro Malagon
of Sunrise in Broward
County will perform his
music.
"My experience at

"Typically I am a highly

vided me the opportunity

Just gaining the chance
to focus on writing has
been an incredible gift. I
am currently working on
poetry, non-fiction and
some flash fiction."
While the teachers gain
from the experience, so
do their students.

compositions, practicing
and performing as an
instrumentalist," Malagon
said in a release from the
Hermitage. "I am looking
forward to sharing this
wonderful experience
with my students and
colleagues."
Friday's event is
special because of the
performances and also
for the chance to tour
the Hermitage and see
the studios and cottages
used by the Fellows. It has
come a long way since its
founding.
As the new millen-
nium dawned, so did The
Hermitage. It was the
dream of many people.
The late Ruth Swayze,
who lived in the main
house on the property
for many years, thought
it would make an ideal
artist retreat. So did the
late Syd Adler who, with
help from attorney Chris
Caswell and his wife
Patricia Caswell, who
at the time was head of
the Sarasota County Arts
Council, led the charge to
save the 8.5-acre site as a
retreat for visual artists,
composers, writers and
others.
Those selected to be-
come Hermitage Fellows
at the not-for-profit
retreat may stay at the site
for up to six weeks to work
on projects. In return, they
would be expected to give
something to the com-
munity in the form of a
workshop, lecture pro-
gram or demonstration.
Friday's evening program
is such a gift.
First to be renovated
was the house in which
Swayze lived. Artists stay
upstairs in the Josephine
Kixmiller Sunset Suite or
one of the other build-
ings completed in later
years, gather in the Nelda
Thompson Dining Room
of the main house each
evening and participate
in conversation, poetry
readings and the like in
the Rita and Syd Adler
Living Room.
The Key Agency Suite,
Duke Taliaferro porch and
the Ehrhart Foundation
Cisterns honor some of
the many contributors
who have allowed the
continuous improvement
of the site, which today

Fellows and a boardwalk
to the beach.
Other groups and
individuals that partici-
pated in the development
of the Hermitage include
the state of Florida,
Department of State,
Division of Historical
Resources, assisted by
the Historic Preservation
Advisory Council. The
project received major
grants from The Venice
Foundation, the Kathleen
Catlin Foundation of the
Community Foundation
of Sarasota and corporate
support.


These days, Hermitage
Fellows come, by invita-
tion only, from all over
the world for residencies
on the historic campus.
According to estimates
from The Hermitage, the
fellows have touched
more than "10,000
Gulf Coast community
children and adults with
unique and inspiring
programs."
In addition, the
Hermitage awards and
administers the presti-
gious Greenfield Prize, an
annual $30,000 commis-
sion for a new work of
art, rotating among three


disciplines: visual art,
music and drama.
For Friday's program,
which begins at 6 p.m.
with an open house,
followed by readings and
music at 7 p.m., bring
beach chairs or blankets
and refreshments to
enjoy during the perfor-
mance. The Hermitage
is at 6660 Manasota Key

in Englewood. For more

CARVING AWAY GRIEF

Englewood man uses emotion


to make amazing creations


By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Chris Bowersox's wood
shop has become a place for
healing.
The small wooden studio
sits behind his house on
Green Street and backs up
to No-Name Alley, just off
Dearborn Street. Colorful
floor-to-ceiling murals peek
from behind various logs
cut from mahogany, Indian
rosewood and southern
red cedar trees. Taking


his inspiration from the
sea life of Englewood, the
artist passes many hours
transforming the wood into
Florida wildlife.
"The sea life that we have
here in Englewood is phe-
nomenal," Bowersox said.
Although he has carved
a variety of subjects, the
majority of his works are
fish and loggerhead sea
turtles.
"Snook are probably one
of my favorites to carve," he
said. "I know them like the


back of my hand."
Sculpting wood has taken
on one form of healing,
helping the artist cope
with his wife's cancer and,
ultimately, her passing in
November. Bowersox met
his wife Linda 20 years ear-
lier in a horticulture class at
what then was the Charlotte
Vo-Tech. Fighting cancer
the first time about 12 years
ago, Linda had 10 years of
good health before getting

If you discover you do
have a hearing loss, try
not to despair. There is
help available.
Your primary care doctor,
or otolaryngologist (physi-
cian trained in the medical
and surgical management
and treatment of the ear,
nose and throat ENT)
will have determined
whether you have con-
ductive hearing loss or
sensorineural hearing loss.
Conductive hearing loss
prevents sound waves
from reaching the hearing
nerves, because of wax
build-up or fluid in the ear
(or other foreign object,
e.g., candy, paper or abug).
Your doctor can usu-
ally treat the blockage -
by syringing, use of ear
drops, antibiotics and
hearing is restored.
Sensorineural Hearing


HEAR THIS?
ANNE TAYLOR

Loss is permanent due
to damage to the cochlea
(hearing nerve) and can
often be helped by the
use of hearing aids.
If you have been
diagnosed with sensori-
neural hearing loss, your
doctor should refer you
to a qualified hearing
health professional (an
audiologist or a hearing
instrument dispenser) for
a full hearing test.

What is an
audiologist?
An audiologist doctor
of audiology (Au.D) is
a health care professional
qualified to do a thorough
evaluation of your hearing.


The audiologist can
determine the type and
degree of your hearing loss
and whether you can be
helped by wearing hearing
aids, and if so, the best
type of hearing aid for
you. The audiologist will
recommend a treatment
program to assist you
with your communication
needs, and if indicated,
may recommend a medi-
cal evaluation.
For more information
or for an audiologist near
you, call the American
Speech-Language-
Hearing Association
(ASHA) at 800-222-2336
or visit Audiology.org.

What is a hearing
instrument
dispenser?
A hearing instrument


dispenser is a profes-
sional certified by
the National Board
for Certification in
Hearing Instrument
Sciences (BC-HIS) and
licensed in all states.
This specialist does an
assessment, fits and
dispenses hearing aids,
and provides instruction
in the use and care of
hearing aids and related
devices.
For a hearing instru-
ment dispenser near you,
call the International
Hearing Society's (IHS)
Hearing Aid Helpline at
800-521-5247 or visit
IhsInfo.org.
You need not face
hearing loss alone and
you will be able to
get much more out of
your visit to the audi-
ologist with support and

August is Immunization Awareness Month


STAFF REPORT
As part of the August
Immunization Awareness
Month campaign, local
health officials remind
people, especially young
adults who are 19-26
years old, to catch up on
their vaccinations.
The following groups
are encouraged to get
vaccinations: college-age
students studying abroad
or living in dormitories;
overseas travelers; persons
who are sexually active;
pregnant women; new
parents and caregivers to
young children; and per-
sons with certain health
conditions, occupational
and lifestyle risks.
Vaccines offer safe
and effective protection
against influenza (flu),
pneumonia, human
papilloma virus (HPV),
tetanus, pertussis
(whooping cough) and
many other vaccine-
preventable diseases.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC),
40 million adults die
each year from diseases
that can be prevented
with immunizations.
Those age 19-26 who
lack health insurance
can get the Gardasil and
TDaP vaccines at no
charge at DOH-Sarasota
Immunization Clinics.
Health officials also are
offering the pneumonia
vaccine at no charge for
those in the 19-26 age
group who are at high
risk for lung diseases and
certain other chronic
diseases.
Immunizations


SUDOKU
FROM CLASSIFIED


are available at two
locations, Monday-
Friday. Call for hours.
Appointments are en-
couraged for adults. The
locations are: William L.
Little Health & Human
Services Center, 2200
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota,
941-861-2900; and North
Port Health Center, 6950
Outreach Way, North
Port, 941-861-3864.

Flu vaccine
The flu vaccine contin-
ues to be the best defense
against circulating flu
viruses. Health officials
say you need to get vacci-
nated every year because
the immune protection
declines over time. The
protection received from
a flu vaccine begins about
two weeks after getting
vaccinated. The 2013-
2014 seasonal flu vaccines
will be available in late
August or early September
at the downtown Sarasota
and North Port locations
of the Florida Department
of Health in Sarasota
County (DOH-Sarasota)
and at area pharmacies.

Pneumonia
vaccine
A serious bout with
the flu can cause some
people to be more
susceptible to developing
pneumonia, a potentially
life-threatening illness.
Those living with diabe-
tes, heart, liver, kidney
or sickle cell disease;
alcoholism; an organ or
bone marrow transplant
or a suppressed immune
system; asthma or lung

diseases; or who smoke,
are especially at risk for
serious and sometimes
deadly complications
from any respiratory in-
fection, including the flu.
Although the pneumonia
vaccine will not keep
someone from getting
the flu, it is a proactive
measure for those at risk
for complications from
the flu. A person only
needs one additional
pneumonia shot after
age 65 for lifetime im-
munity. There should be
a minimum of five years
between the two shots.

Human papilloma
virus
Human papilloma vi-
rus (HPV), which causes
cervical, oral, anal and
penile cancer, as well as
genital warts, is a sexu-
ally transmitted disease
contracted through
contact with bodily fluids
during vaginal, anal or
oral sex. Both males and
females 13-26 years of
age are at the highest risk
of contracting HPV. This
disease can be prevented
through three doses of
the Gardasil vaccine


given over six months.
The vaccine is recom-
mended for girls and
young women ages 9-26,
and for boys and young
men ages 9-21. The
vaccine recommendation
extends to age 26 among
men who have sex with
men. The CDC reports
that this vaccine has
been shown to be 90 per-
cent effective in prevent-
ing genital warts and at
least 70 percent effective
in preventing cervical
cancer. The vaccine is
most effective when it is
given prior to the young
person becoming sexu-
ally active.

Tetanus
Tetanus or "lockjaw"
is a bacterial disease
that affects the nervous
system. Infection with
tetanus causes severe
muscle spasms, leading
to "locking" of the jaw
so that the individual
cannot open his/her
mouth or swallow, and
may even lead to death
by suffocation. Tetanus is
contracted through a cut
or wound that becomes
contaminated with the
tetanus bacteria.

"Tetanus is not spread
from person to person.
It can be prevented with
vaccination," said DOH-
Sarasota Immunization
Program Director Donna
Keith. "It is especially
important for adults
working in health care
fields and those who
work or have hobbies
that increase their risk
of getting dirty puncture
wounds, such as fishing
and gardening, to be up-
to-date on their tetanus
vaccination."

Sarasota County looks to assist homeless


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

With more and more
people being forced to
live on the streets due to
being jobless or battling
an addiction, Sarasota
County is looking at the
possibility of seeking
outside help to bring the
area's homeless popula-
tion off the street.
The county and several
homeless-awareness
groups are in favor
of bringing in Robert
Marbut, who heads a San
Antonio, Texas-based
consulting firm that aims
to create and implement
strategic action plans to
reduce homelessness. On
a recent visit to the area,
Marbut urged area lead-
ers that they needed to


do something about the
issue and quickly.
According to the
Suncoast Partnership
to End Homelessness
website, more than 7,000
people received home-
lessness-related services
in the Sarasota/Manatee
county region in May.
Marbut's methods
have worked to sub-
stantially reduce the
homeless population
in other Florida cities
such as Clearwater, St.
Petersburg and Panama
City. In Clearwater, he
created the Safe Harbor
homeless shelter and
service center. Several
local leaders, includ-
ing Sarasota County
Commissioner Joe
Barbetta, recently toured
the center. Barbetta said


Friday he was impressed
with the facility which
actually is run by the
Pinellas County Sheriff's
Office that holds
around 400 people.
"Obviously this needs
to be done in Sarasota
County, starting with
the city of Sarasota,
where the majority of the
problems are, and work-
ing our way south toward
Venice and North Port,"
Barbetta said, echoing a
recommendation Marbut
made. Marbut could not
be reached for comment
Friday.
Barbetta said he would
be in favor of hiring
Marbut, who has pro-
posed to work with area
officials for four months
on the issue. The esti-
mated price, including


travel expenses, is
around $40,000. That
cost could be split up
among the county and its
municipalities.
"We don't need any
more studies," Barbetta
said. "Hiring him would
help narrow down a site
for a facility and come up
with a proposal on how
to make that site work,
how much it would cost,
how many case workers
would be needed and
who would run it."
North Port Police Capt.
Anthony Sirianni said
Friday that the layout of
the city isn't as conduc-
tive for the homeless as it
is in the city of Sarasota,
where the homeless
gather in the downtown
area around shopping
areas, bus stations and


parks. He said North
Port often sees an influx
of homeless when the
weather changes up
North and they take
buses to Florida in search
of warmer weather.
"It's nowhere near
as bad here as it is in
Sarasota," Sirianni said.
The North Port
Coalition for the
Homeless and Needy
Children started help-
ing the city's homeless
population about four
years ago. Coalition
president Jan Huegen
said the organization
helps take care of
homeless and/or needy
children in North Port's
schools by giving them
backpacks of toiletries.
She said the group gets
information about the


kids from school guid-
ance counselors, and
gives out approximately
400 backpacks per
month when school is in
session.
Huegen said she'd be
in favor of the county
bringing in an outside
expert like Marbut to
assist with the county's
homeless problem.
She said she's heard of
a couple of homeless
camps in the city and
even more homeless
families sleeping in their
cars.
"Nobody wants to talk
about this issue," Huegen
said. "People used to say
we don't have any home-
less people around here.
Yes we do ... just look
around you."

Program aim


to make government fun


By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER

Larry Prohs loves the
Sarasota community
he's been living in since
moving from Ohio in
December, but thanks to
the county's Civics 101
course, he's now more
aware of what the county
provides.
"One of the reasons
why we moved to the
community was because
of how well-kept the area
is," Prohs said. "I feel like
I have a leg up because
of the process."
Sarasota County
has been offering the
course since 2000, and
according to Kaitlyn
Johnston, community
outreach specialist of
neighborhood services,
the program has been a
resounding success.
"We accommodate up
to 25 who register for
the course," Johnston


said. "It's eye-opening.
We even get up to three
county employees on
average who take the
course."
Johnston said the
course is catered to
noncounty employees,
and the only requirement
is they either live or work
in the county.
"We had one person
who was impressed how
passionate the county
employees are at their
jobs," she said.
There are 10 three-
hour sessions that
include breaks and
occasional tours through
service centers.
"The county does a
ton of stuff," Prohs said.
"They told us what was
going on with services
like the fire department,
sheriff's office, the 2050
plan, zoning and coding
enforcement We talked
to (Sarasota County
Sheriff) Tom Knight and


(Sarasota County Clerk of
Court) Karen Rushing."
Johnston said there is a
waiting list for the spring
course to accommodate
seasonal residents. The
fall course is nearly full.
"Sometimes a program
will strike a chord with
someone and they'll
follow through," she said.
"Sometimes they join an
advisory board focusing
on different aspects of
the county. The only
feedback I've heard is
that some wish there was
more time. They come
away very fulfilled."
Prohs found himself
volunteering for a neigh-
borhood grant program
after his time with the
course.
"One of the best things
I came away with is a
greater appreciation of
how our tax dollars are
spent," he said. "I think
everyone who came
out of the meeting felt

of shoes donated to Kids' Needs of Englewood for distribution at Saturday's Back to School Bash. Held at South County YMCA in
Englewood, the annual event distributes clothing, school supplies and other necessities to area students. Free dental exams,
information about local libraries and other organizations, a martial arts demonstration, a bounce house and free hot dogs and
popcorn also were provided.


The Lemon Bay High School girls basketball team helped to
prepare for the Back to School Bash by sorting and marking shoes
and clothing, and putting together and distributing 500 bags
filled with toothpaste, soap, shampoo and other toiletries. Some
of the Lady Mantas helping Saturday morning at the Back to
School Bash at South County YMCA were Sabrina Missbach, Hayley
Smith, Taylor Di Giacomo, Kaitlyn Dailey and Shannen Smith.

sick again two years ago.
During those times,
Bowersox would turn to his
shop to deal with his stress.
"I would go out and just
pound the wood," he said.
By the following mom-
ing, he would see his newly
carved fish or a dolphin.
"I wouldn't even know
what I had done."
The self-taught wood-
carver has been practicing
his trade since the late
'90s, and his work easily
can be recognized in the
community. For 11 years,
his sculpture of sea turtles


titled "La Arribada" was
displayed on Dearborn
Street. The piece celebrates
the arrival of sea turtles
coming ashore to lay their
eggs. Bowersox recently
brought the sculpture
back to his shop for some
tender-loving care. It needs
to be sanded and resealed,
and eventually will be put
up for sale.
Bowersox regularly
would open the street-fac-
ing doors of his wood shop
and studio for the second
Saturday of the month
during Dearborn Street's
Saturday Night Live events.
Some evenings, Harmony
Rio would bring cookies by
the studio. Rio has painted
several pieces created by


Bowersox. Another friend,
named Hannah, would
play her flute.
After his wife passed, the
woodcarver's grief took its
toll.
"Englewood Bible
Church is my main stable,"
Bowersox said. "They
helped me get back into the
carving."
Working through the
healing ministry, the artist
frequently opens the studio
doors during the day to of-
fer prayer and help to those
walking by in need.
"That's how you relieve
pressure, by helping
someone else," he said.
The tools of his trade
also have offered a form of
healing for the artist. Using


Dremel tools, orbital sand-
ers, high-tech wood bum-
ers and time, Bowersox
gets a little therapy for his
chronic back pain. "The
vibrations from the equip-
ment work really good for
my arthritis," he said. "It
breaks up all the joints. It's
really incredible."
Bushwacker Tree Service
supplies Bowersox with
local wood for his shop. At
times, the artist trades his
sculpture for more logs.
"I want to keep creating,"
he said. "If I have a piece
hanging around, I want to
get it out of here."
One of his items, recently
auctioned, was a 10-foot
totem pole hand-carved
by the artist. Sculpted from


southern red cedar, the
150-pound totem portrays
Florida creatures including
a red fish, a loggerhead sea
turtle, a dolphin, and an
alligator gar, topped with a
tarpon carved on the back
of a woodpecker's wings.
"It was beyond chal-
lenging," he said. "I was
pushing it. It should have
just exploded," Bowersox
said of the piece he
originally created in 2008.
"I have to watch my timing
when wood is drying out. If
the wood is too wet, it can
crack If it is too dry, the
wood will also splinter and
crack I catch it at the right
dryness, which is where
the horticulture experience
comes in."

August special: Certified pre-owned pets


FROM SUNCOAST HUMANE
SOCIETY

Suncoast Humane
Society is hosting
an August Adoption
Special on all makes
and models of certified
pre-owned cats, both
foreign and domestic.
For the entire month
of August, cats and
kittens are available
for adoption for $10,
plus $10 rabies vaccine
fee. Each cat comes
with a complete under-
the-hood inspection,
microchip, four-paw
drive system, exterior
grooming and nail
clipping, and a 100,000


purr warranty.
Dogs and puppies are
also available during
the month of August
for $25, plus $10 rabies
vaccine fee. Suncoast
Humane Society is lo-
cated at 6781 San Casa
Drive, Englewood.
For more informa-
tion, call Suncoast
Humane Society at
941-474-7884 or visit
Humane.org.
Suncoast Humane
Society has been serv-
ing animals and people
since 1971. Founded
as Englewood Animal
Aid Society, the orga-
nization's services and
programs were soon


challenged to meet the
demands placed on it
by the pet over-popula-
tion crisis.
Expansions to the fa-
cility in Englewood dur-
ing the 1980s and 1990s
helped the Society to
more effectively provide
for a growing service
area, including the
Venice area. To reflect
the changes, the organi-
zation became Suncoast
Humane Society. Today,
its service area includes
Charlotte County, most
of Sarasota County
and the Boca Grande
portion of Lee County,
a total of more than
450 miles.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

S83 ~ Q J6 0 5 K Q 109765


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
36 Pass 30

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A Obviously, partner's bid is
forcing you have already limited
your hand. The best you can do now
is highlight the one feature you have
outside your long suit. Bid three
hearts.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
kA Q653 ~Q60 953 K J 2

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 16 Pass
2NT Pass ?

A You have no idea of the best spot,
so just continue to describe your
holding. The key feature to describe
now is your support for partner's suit.
Bid three clubs. You are in a forcing
auction so don't steal your own space
with dramatics. Start by showing
your support for partner's suit. Bid
three clubs.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
SK 93 ~Q 10 8 6 5 0 4 A873

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

A Could not be better. You can
describe your holding with one bid.
Jump to four diamonds to show a
singleton in the suit and game-going
values with a heart fit. Any further
move is up to partner.

Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:


A874 K J32 0 KQ 104 A 6

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

A This looks like a no-brainer. With
a balanced 13-count and three-card
support for partner's major, it might
seem that you should employ
whatever method you use to tell
partner this. Recent experience tends
to show that nine tricks will make
more often than 10, so we suggest
you bid three no trump, or two
diamonds to give partner a chance to
bid hearts if he has a four-card suit.

Q 5 Not vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

A K Q J O K80 Q954 10 5 3 2

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

A That depends. If you play that a
one no trump response is forcing, use
that weapon and rebid two no trump
to show a balanced 10-12 points. If
not, you have to temporize. While it
looks as if a minor-suit response is
your only choice, because of the
shabby nature of both minors we
actually prefer one spade!

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as dealer, you
hold:

6 Void 6 0 QJ 7 6 3 AK QJ 653

What is your opening bid?

A From our point of view, the
opponents might have a grand slam
in one of the majors! To make it as
difficult as possible for them to
communicate, our choice is to open
with five clubs!

Help plan community of the future


FROM SCOPE

Venice-area residents
are invited to attend a
"High Tech, High Touch"
community workshop
this month, hosted
by SCOPE (Sarasota
County Openly Plans for
Excellence).
The workshop will
be Aug. 23, 8:30 a.m. to
noon, at Venice City Hall.
A continental breakfast
and coffee are included.
To register, call SCOPE at


941-365-8751 or visit
Scopexcel.org.
SCOPE is a community
engagement organization
in Sarasota County with
a mission to connect and
inspire citizens to create
a better community.
The workshop will fo-
cus on conversations and
community data specific
to Venice. The workshop
will be co-hosted by the
city of Venice and the
Institute for the Ages.
"We'll be sharing how


high-tech, high-touch
approaches are con-
tributing to both better
community data and
a more engaged com-
munity," 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
workshop and contribute


their perspective on the
qualities of life that mat-
ter most to them about
Venice and Sarasota
County as a whole.
"By integrating
high-touch community
conversations 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.
A similar workshop
was held Aug. 20 in
Sarasota and one will
be held Aug. 29 in North
Port at the Morgan
Family Community
Center.

Happy tales
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 individually 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. Visit Scopexcel.
org to find out how to
participate.


Club honors


outstanding


citizen


FROM SERTOMA CLUB
OF VENICE

Dori Hunt was given
Sertoma Club of Venice's
club's Outstanding
Citizens Award.
The award is given to
someone who is not a
member of the club and
provides outstanding
volunteer service to the
community.
Hunt was born and
raised in West Virginia
and married Hobart
Hunt, a career man in
the United States Air
Force.
This is where her
volunteer calling began
- overseas in the base
hospital, officer wives
clubs and on various
boards.


Back in the states,
after retiring to Venice,
she has volunteered her
time, talent and trea-
sure to organizations
like the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce.
She has volunteered
with the Chamber every
Tuesday since 1984, log-
ging in more than 6,000
hours. Her other in-
volvements include The
Venice Theatre, Venice
Area Beautification
Inc. and Venice Public
Library.
She loves her com-
munity along with her
friends at the Venice
Yacht Club.
Dori Hunt shows
how one person can
make a big impact on a
community.

AWARENESS
FROM PAGE 2

Pertussis
Health officials say
that recent outbreaks
of pertussis (whooping
cough) underscore the
need for everyone to
be up-to-date on all
routine vaccinations.
Since immunity tends to
wane years after vac-
cines are given, booster
shots are often neces-
sary to provide adequate


protection from whoop-
ing cough, which in can
cause serious respira-
tory distress and even
death, particularly in
infants and very young
children.

Tetanus boosters
Tetanus diphtheria
(Td) boosters are recom-
mended every 10 years.
The CDC recommends a
one-time dose (booster)
of tetanus, diphtheria
and pertussis (TDaP) in
place of one Td booster
in those 10 years of age


and older. Pregnant
women are advised to get
a TDaP booster with each
pregnancy. In addition to
providing protection to
the person vaccinated,
it also helps to protect
infants less than 12-18
months of age, who
are at very high risk for


severe complications
from pertussis, and are
not old enough to be
fully immunized.
Health officials
encourage persons to
talk to their health care
provider about their
vaccine needs. If travel-
ing outside the United


States, specialty vac-
cines are recommended
to protect individuals
from diseases that are
not prevalent in this
country.
For more information,
visit SarasotaHealth.org
or the CDC website at
Cdc.Gov/vaccines.

Making WAVES,' doing good


FRAN \


WAVES National
President Jo Hanson and
BetsyWaddell traveled
from Sebring, Fla., to
attend the 25th an-
niversary celebration of
the Venice Branch Gulf
Coast Dolphins Unit 56
Waves International.
Hanson talked about
the services WAVES
International provides,
including visiting hospi-
tals, providing scholar-
ships and awards to
students. The group also
provides stained glass
windows for chapels
where veterans gather.
The Venice Chapter


awards scholarships and
certificates to students,
and at the luncheon,
Andrea Cadieux was the
treasurer.
Tanis Cox enlisted in
the WAVES in 1943. She
served in Brooklyn, New
York, but her favorite as-
signment was at Chelsey
Naval Hospital in Boston.
It was there she met a
young sailor named John
E Kennedy returning
from an incident with his
PT boat.
Talis celebrates
her 100th birthday
in February and still
proudly wears her
uniform.
Claire Moore made
sure the potluck lun-
cheon included plenty
of red, white and blue
decorations.
When these veterans
were asked why they en-
listed, the answer was the
same as with others, "My
country needed me." We
salute these wonderful
women for their service


to our country and their
continued dedication to
the community.

A VIP morning
Florida Gov. Rick
Scott joined about 40
citizens in Sen. Nancy
Detert's office for the
ceremonial signing of the
bill that makes driving
and texting against the
law. It was a joy to see
Sen. Detert surrounded
by colleagues and friends
for this special signing.
The senator worked for
several years getting this
law passed. While it isn't
exactly what she envi-
sioned, it is a start. The
senator has a talent for
ensuring compromise.
Rep. Doug Holder also
had a hand in getting the
bill passed and enjoyed
the gathering.
Taking photos and
celebrating good things
were the agenda items
for the morning. Bravo
Sen. Nancy Detert.


One of our best
The special person
of this week is Claire
Moore. This nice lady
enjoys bringing people
together. She is dedicated
to teaching everyone
about the USA and the
patriotic spirit. She
enjoys speaking before
groups and telling about
her experiences while
serving with the WAVES.
Claire attends most
events in town honoring
veterans and participates
when asked. She is an
interesting speaker and
adds personal anecdotal
stories. On top of it all, she
is kind and enjoys serving
others. Claire is one of the
veterans who make Venice
a great place to live.

PROVIDED BY VISANI COMEDY
DINNER THEATER

An act this good usually only comes
to town during tourist season. Visani is
pleased to announce that Mark and Clark
will be performing for the first time at
Visani Dinner Theater on Tuesday. The late
columnist Forrest Duke described them
as having "the flash of Liberace, a lot of
Jerry Lee Lewis and the piano artistry of
Ferrante and Teicher." Renowned enter-
tainer/pianist Victor Borge called them
"two of the most talented pianists I have
ever seen."Variety said,"Razzmatazz
pizzazz, the pair perform on twin Bald-
wins, on the keys as well as on top of the
Grands. It's one of those super-flash acts
with elements of hot style, bombast,
pseudo-classical-pops.."' It is a musical
explosion with all the choreography that
comes with it.
They've had numerous national televi-
sion appearances, including "The Joey
Bishop Show"as well as on "The Merv


Griffin Show,""The Mike Douglas Show"
(one on which Jackie Gleason co-hosted
with Mike and introduced the twins as
his "find"), and "The Joe Franklin Show"
in NewYork. Mark and Clark also have
appeared on TV specials on all three major
networks. To watch a Mark and Clark
performance is to double your enjoyment
and double your fun. But there's no doubt
about it once you see this duo on
stage, you won't have to think twice about
the meaning of unique and unsurpassed
talent and entertainment.
Make your reservations early, as shows
can sell out quickly. Tickets for the show
are being sold as a complete show and
dinner package for $40. The ticket price
includes a complete, made-from-scratch
dinner, sales tax and gratuities. Doors
open for dinner and cocktails at 5 p.m.
Show time is at 7:30 p.m. For additional
information visit the website www.visani.
net, or call 941-629-9191. Visani Comedy
Dinner Theater is located at 2400 Kings
Highway, Port Charlotte.

GO NIGHT LIFE





Rattlers Old West Saloon


By DEBBIE FLESSNER

Like a phoenix from the ashes, Rattlers
Old West Saloon is once again open, after
recovering from the devastating effects of
2004's Hurricane Charley.
When Charley took that jog to the right
just before it was originally expected to
hit land, it took a direct path to Arcadia.
The destruction was widespread and
debilitating, and Rattlers, which had been
owned by Darryll Byrd and his mother
Patricia since 1999, was right in its path.
"The hurricane was a devastating thing
for most people in this town," Byrd said.
"After it hit, we moved our license and
opened up The Wagon Wheel."
But the 1920s building that was
originally a hardware store, a nightclub
and then Rattlers was always in the back
of his mind. Finally Byrd and his mother
decided to renovate and reopen Rattlers,
using local craftsmen to make the
extensive repairs on the water-damaged
building.
Byrd says that now, nine months after


the reopening, things are going well. And
with the new addition to the name of
the club, the Byrds are staying true to the
history of Arcadia.
"When we came back with Rattlers this
time, I wanted to stay with the theme of
the town," he said.
With the complete renovations, the
Byrds were able to clear out and create
exactly what they wanted in the spacious
building.
"It has two full bars, a billiard room and
a VIP room upstairs," Byrd said. "The VIP
room kind of reminds you of Miss Kitty's
(from the TV show Gunsmoke). It has its
own air conditioning an balcony and
is the best seat in the house to watch
a band."
On the Rattlers big stage, you can
hear bands playing country, classic rock
and southern rock. Occasionally, they
host themed evenings, such as decades
nights, and they bring in special bands
for those.
But the fun doesn't just happen on
the weekends.
"We have karaoke on Thursdays and


free line dancing lessons on Tuesdays,"
Byrd said. "And on Wednesdays, we do
different DJs."
Rattlers takes advantage of any excuse
to have a party. Whether it's open mic
nights, acoustic shows, beach parties,
Mardi Gras, Halloween, Swamp People or
birthdays, you can celebrate it at Rattlers.
And if you would like them to host or help
out with you fundraising event, they can
do that, too.
"We will continue to do different things
for charity," Byrd said. "I've been living
here for over 20 years, and I really like


this community. It's a great one."
Rattlers Old West Saloon is at 111
West Oak Street in Arcadia, and is open
Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m.
to midnight and Sunday, from 1 to 8
p.m. This weekend will feature Rye Road
and on Aug. 16-17, Rusty Bucket will be
onstage. Chris MacArthur will take the
stage Aug. 23-24, and Saddle Tramp will
perform Aug. 30-31. For more informa-
tion about upcoming events, visit the
Rattlers Arcadia Facebook page or call

Dale Alward
President and CEO of Englewood Community Hospital

By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT.

Relocating to Florida within the last year,
Dale Alward, the President and CEO of Engle-
wood Community Hospital, has immersed
himself in Englewood's unique, beachside
town. "It's a little gem on the coast," he said.
Dale and his wife Christy are originally from
northern Maine, though Dale's career with
the U.S. Air Force Medical Service and most
recently with HCA, Hospital Corporation of
America, has taken the couple to several
locations.
Moving from Indiana to Florida was a
welcomed change."We love the ocean," Dale
said."Englewood is kind of a little niche in
here," he said adding that the couple enjoys
that it is well-preserved and not overly
commercialized. Dale was introduced to
Farlow's on the Water after serving with
owner Keith Farlow on both the Englewood

metropolitan board for the YMCA of South- of cranberry chicken salad, placed over bed

Since moving, the couple has ventured out
to many local eateries sampling the home
cooked flavor of the independently owned
restaurants. "They have some really good
fare here for a small town;' Dale said. "A lot
of tender loving care goes into it" Dale and
Christy have enjoyed meals from Lock'N Key,
Gulf View Grill, Mango Bistro, Compadres, La


Stanza, and Ole Time Cafe on Dearborn Street.
Closest to Dale's heart is his own home-
made Italian food."Pasta with spaghetti
sauce, chicken cacciatore, I make all of that
stuff at home;'Dale said.
"He is the cook of the house;'Christy
said. Once a year, Dale treats his family to a
25-pound lasagna at Christmas. The couple is
excited to be putting down roots in the new
community and continues to explore the
surrounding areas.
Farlow's on the Water is located at 2080
South McCall Road. For information call

The semi-private Boca Royale Golf & Country Club is open to the public and offers newly
renovated practice facilities with putting green, sand bunker, and a pitching and chipping area.
U.S.G.A. golf professional Adrian Matern and assistant professional Scott Holcomb offer lessons to
both members and the golfing public. Holcomb, who has been with Boca Royale since 2009, said the
whole experience begins when golfers are welcomed in the parking lot by courteous staff and proceed
to the pro shop and out to the beautiful grounds. After enjoying the outdoors, golfers are invited inside
to the Georgian style clubhouse for exceptional dining and picturesque views.
"It's not about hitting the drivers and it's not about making par," said Holcomb. "It's about enjoying
all the other things along the way."
Golfers have a choice of five tees ranging from the Diamond Tees, measuring 6,357 yards, to the
Bronze Tees, measuring 4,891 yards. Matern, who qualified for the PGA in South Africa, says that
although it is considered a short course, it has earned its reputation as a true local challenge. "It is
truly a shot-makers layout," Matern said. "With towering oaks hugging narrow fairways, our sharp
doglegs and false carries demand the full attention of even the most skilled golfers."
Memberships are available to non-residents of the Boca Royale community and can be purchased
for single, family, and seasonal terms. A variety of plans offer benefits including member-only golf
tournaments, driving range rights, Bocce, clay tennis courts, and a private fitness center.
Boca Royale's clubhouse offers fine dining at the Fairway Dining Room and a casual dining
experience at the 19th Hole. Boca Royale Golf& Country Club is located at 1601 Englewood Road in
Englewood. For information or tee times call the golf pro shop at 941-474-7475.

Englewood hosts Pirate Poker Run


E'C'P '"' August 7-13, 2013


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It may be known as a day full of fun and
accumulated poker hands, but Englewood's
Pirate Poker Run has its roots in community
charity.
Now in its fifth year, the Pirate Poker Run
was started in 2008 by the second ever Leader-
ship Englewood class.
"Leadership Englewood is a nine-month
class that you apply for,"said Amy Trestia, one
of the event organizers."You go out into the
community and learn about all the different
aspects of Englewood, then at the end of each
session, there is a class project."
The class project that particular year was to
create a poker run which would donate a large
portion of its proceeds to a local charity. That
first year, the group donated to Habitat for
Humanity.
Two years later, the Englewood-Cape Haze
Chamber of Commerce took over the event,


but kept it as a fundraiser, with a portion of
the money made still going toward a nonprofit
organization.

The group can expect a sizable donation this
year from the very popular poker run because
of the number of people who usually show up
for it.
"Last year, we had approximately 325
participants, based on the number of (poker)
hands that were turned in:'Trestia said."Then

5 p.m. All the hands will be checked and the
winner announced between 5:30 and 6 p.m.
"We will have blues legend Jimmy Gilmore
taking the stage (at Cape Haze Marina) at
4 p.m.,"Trestia said."There will be some food,
with a minimal plate charge, and a cash bar."
If you're participating in this year's poker run,
don't forget that dressing up for the event is
half the fun. Put on your favorite pirate gear
and your best pirate attitude, and get ready to
enjoy a day with friends fora great cause.

'The Underpants' held over again


Florida Studio Theatre just announced
the second extension of "The Underpants"
by Steve Martin.
Adapted from the Carl Sternheim work,
but with plenty of Martin wit, "The Under-
pants" makes for a fun night of theater.
Some lives are shaped by tragedy, some
by art, and others by underpants falling
down in public. This play spins the farcical
tale of five lives reborn from one accidental
act of indecency.
"The Underpants" features returning
company members Gil Brady and Daryl
Embry. Brady last appeared in FST's
Cabaret production of "Reel Music."
Embry returns after last appearing in
"Perfect Wedding." Making their FST


debut are company members Jennifer
Joan Thompson, Mary Ann Conk, Danny
Bernardy, and Chet Carlin. Directing the
show is Bruce Jordan, returning to FST
after last summer's "Perfect Wedding."
Jordan is also the original Co-Producer
and Director of the national hit, "Shear
Madness."
Sarasota Magazine called the play
"naughty fun" and stated the actors
perform with "accented flair and theatri-
cality." Audiences have agreed, saying The
Underpants is "wonderful," "enjoyable"
and "better than Broadway."
This second extension will run through
Aug. 11. Single tickets for The Underpants
range from $18 $34. Order tickets by
phone at 941-366-9000, stop by the box
office or visit: FloridaStudioTheatre.org.

Gatorama's



Hatching Festival


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Fun fact: Newborn alligators do not have
teeth.
That's actually very helpful information to
have if you plan on attending the Gatorama
Alligator Hatching Festival this year.
As one of the last remaining Florida Roadside
Attractions, Gatorama has been hosting this
uniquely Florida event for the past ten years.
Owners Patty and Allen Register came up with
the idea as a way to give visitors an opportunity
to come to the park and see alligators in a
whole new light
"Everybody who pays admission can come
and see hundreds of alligator eggs hatching,
but if you want to actually have one hatch in
your hand, that's extra;' Patty Register said."We
have about 4,000 eggs in the incubator, and by
August 17, that will be the peak"

opportunities
will be available,
depending upon how many eggs are actually
ready to be hatched at the time.
Each day, Allen Register looks through the
many nests of alligator eggs, searching for
those that are closest to being ready to hatch.
The participants for that particular time slot will
then be taken over to the "hatching tent."
"There you will get to enjoy a 20-minute
presentation of the life cycle of alligators here in
Florida:' Patty said."Allen will show everybody
how to hatch an alligator. Then we will lay an
egg in your hand, and you apply a little bit of


pressure at the bottom of the egg."
Each baby alligatorwill be curled up in their
egg about three and a half times. As newborns,
they measure between seven and nine inches
long.
Patty says that the way Allen determines if
an egg is ready to be hatched is he waits until
one of the other eggs in the cluster, or nest, has
hatched. Then he knows the rest of the eggs in
the group are ready, too.
The Registers don't alter the natural process
of the egg hatching at all. They've been going
through this process at Gatorama for 25 years,
well before they built a festival around it, and at
this point, Allen considers himself an "eggspert"
on alligator hatching, which occurs during the
same two week or so time period each year.
With a gestation period of 65-72 days, alligators
breed in March and April, build their nests in
June and hatch eggs in August
As a true alligator farm, Gatorama is very

Pattysaid.
"This part of our
educational program is a piece of the model the
state uses to manage its alligator program"'
Some of the eggs used in the Gatorama
hatching come from the state of Florida public
wetlands egg collection program. Patty says
that the model that this state uses is the most
successful collection of eggs foran endangered
species in the country.
"One of the great things (about the Hatching
Festival) is that kids will be able to make the
connection between eggs and lifeshe said.
"It's a great educational opportunity for them."

SUN CORRESPONDENT


As part of the brand new"Hard Rock
Heatwave" concert series, the Seminole
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa, along
with 102.5 The Bone, will present the First
Responders Tribute Concert on August 9.
Mike "Cowhead" Calta, of The Cowhead
Show on 102.5 The Bone, will emcee the
benefit concert as well as perform with
his band Pitbull Toddler. The band was
formed in 2008 out of the highlyrated
Cowhead Show and features a combina-
tion of blues/metal driven originals and
popular covers.
"These are the folks who are there for us
on a daily basis no matter how dangerous
it gets. We are thrilled to be able to put
on an event to show our appreciation
and bring awareness to their charitable
causes. I hope this will be the first of an
annual event we will do for many years to
come ... and I will remind them of it every
time I get pulled over."
All the funds raised from this event will
benefit Hillsborough Firefighters Benevo-
lent Relief Fund and the Lynn Sowers
Memorial Foundation, which was created
in memory of Hillsborough County Deputy
Lynn Sowers, following her tragic death
in 1995.
The Hillsborough Firefighters Benevo-
lent Relief Fund's mission is to respond
to a brother or sister firefighter in need.
It was established in 2004 as a nonprofit
organization with a focus on helping fire-


fighters in Tampa, Temple Terrace, Plant
City, MacDill and Hillsborough.
Gina Morales, public relations manager
of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino,
Tampa, said that supporting local first
responders is something that is very
important to the Hard Rock and also to
102.5 The Bone.
"We were inspired by recent events and
thought to do something special to honor
our everyday heroes, those guys and girls
protecting us every day,"she said."We
called on Cowhead and 102.5 The Bone to
help us get the word out because they are
passionate about supporting these folks
too, so the partnership made sense."
Opening for them will be local band
Scream Machine, which features Hillsbor-
ough County Sheriff's Office deputy Jay
Hajj on vocals.
The community will also be able to
nominate first responders for the inau-
gural Rock Solid Under Pressure Award.
Nominations are now being accepted
at www.theboneonline.com. The grand
prize winner will receive a guitar, a grand
prize trip, a photo located in Hard Rock
for a year, dinner at Council Oak Steaks
and Seafood Restaurant and breakfast at
The Green Room, and the winner will be
announced at the First Responders Tribute
Concert.
The event is 21 and up with a suggested
donation of $10. All first responders get
in free with their badge, and the first 500
get a commemorative T-shirt. There will
also be a silent auction featuring rock-
related items such as guitars signed by


Sum 41 and Gavin DeGraw.
On the same evening as
the First Responders Benefit
Concert, the Hard Rock
Hotel and Casino
will be continuing
their Hot Summer
Nights Poolside
Parties series.
Each Friday
since July 12
and until
August 30,
the hotel has
presented
a free
pool party
for hotel
guests and
non-guests
above the
age of 21. On
Friday, August
9, TV star
Mario Lopez
will be hosting
the event and
DJ Knex will
be spinning
from 9 p.m. until
midnight. The first
500 guests admitted
will also be able to
sample free cocktails
like Jameson, Absolut
Citron, Avion Silver
Tequila, Malibu Coconut
and Absolut Tune.

Swingtide: a fabulous


musical feast


LIVE MUSIC G O


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

According to Swingtide Combo leader,
Mike Pignotti, jazz bands are like chefs,
and music is their recipe. "Swingtide is
serving patrons a fabulous meal," said
Pignotti, who has led the Combo for
four years. During that time the group
has undergone some changes and has
grown from three to six players, but the
recipe remains the same. "We try to stay
fresh, and we play real stuff, nothing
canned,' he explains.
For Swingtide a sound system isn't
really necessary, and they want to keep
it that way unplugged. Pignotti
gives a lot of credit for the group's
success to Marie Leforge, who owns
Mango Bistro in Englewood. "Marie
hired us when we first began, and
we've played there year-round ever
since"'said Pignotti. By the same token,
Leforge is happy as "Swingtide has a
great following and they often surprise
us with guest musicians. All seem to
really enjoy playing which translates in
their quality of music," she adds.
Swingtide literally means to swing
with the tide. It's how Mike Pignotti
describes his feelings when sailing with
the tide on his sailboat. Jazz aficio-
nados who prefer instrumental music
know that improvisation is important,
and Swingtide members take turns
performing solos during shows. Two
performers, Kirk Reyes and Suzy Dazzle
(yes, it's a stage name) are profes-
sional musicians. Bass player Reyes has
performed with Buddy Morrow, Choco
Orta and others. He's also an accom-
plished arranger with over 100 songs
in both big band and salsa libraries.


Dazzle, the group's newest member,
teaches piano and vocals and has
performed widely in Australia and her
native New Zealand. Semi-pro members
include Mike Pignotti, drums; John
Wheatley, sax; Jim Lemli, guitar; and
Pat Gannon, trumpet.
Pignotti began studying drums at
age 10 and has developed advanced
drumming techniques in the style of
Joe Morello and Art Blakley. Wheatley
learned to play alto sax in a school
program and went on to learn impro-
visation while living in Alaska and
Spokane, Wash., where he played with
big bands. Lemli graduated with a
bachelor of music in composition and
performance from Berklee College of
Music. He has taught guitar to private
students and performs locally. Gannon's
father, a professional trumpet player,
was his inspiration along with master
players, Bobby Hackett and Clark Terry
among others.
Swingtide has performed at Mangiaf-
ico's in Venice, Boca Royale Golf and
Country Club, Sarasota Farmers Market,
Pine Senior Center, Ritz Beach Club and
the Venice Yacht Club. According to their
website: www.swingtidecombo.com,
they can perform wherever profes-
sional, skillful and entertaining music is
desired. They play jazz standards as well
as sambas, bossas, swing and blues.
They offer over 100 selections to choose
from, and they're all about resurrecting
old memories and beginning new ones.
To book them for a party, wedding,
festival or show contact: Mike Pignotti
at 941-492-6529. See them in person
at Mango Bistro, 301 W. Dearborn St. in
Englewood on August 10, 31, Sept. 21,
Oct. 5, 26, Nov. 16, and Dec. 28.

*In the first Beatles film, "A Hard Day's Night,"the word "Beatles" is never
mentioned.
SJohn Lennon wrote the Beatles song "Dear Prudence"when Mia Farrow's sister,
Prudence, wouldn't"come out and play"with Mia and the Beatles at a religious
retreat in India.
Paul McCartney wrote "And I Love Her"and "I'm Looking Through You"for old
girlfriend Jane Asher.
"Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)"was the first Beatles song featuring
sitar, played by George Harrison.
Drummer Richard Starkey was originally nicknamed "Rings" by former band
member Rory Storm. It was because he wore so many rings but later it changed to
"Ringo" which sounded more "cowboy.'

Volunteers make our schools great


By LORI WHITE
SARASOTA COUNTY SCHOOLS SUPERINTENDENT
The quality of the school district is
attributed to many factors, and the
support of the community is at the top
of the list. We are privileged to have
more than 11,000 volunteers working
in our schools to help enhance the
learning environment for our students.
Thanks to the citizens of this
county who passed a referendum in
2002 to provide additional operating
funds to our schools, we are able to
have nationally competitive teacher
salaries, special programs for strug-
gling learners and challenging honors
courses. Sarasota is the first county in
the state to have a referendum ensur-
ing first-rate schools.
The quality of the district's arts


programs has
been recognized
by the John
E Kennedy
Center for the
Performing Arts
and the National --
School Boards 4
Association.
These organiza-
tions selected
our School Board
as one of only
two in the coun- Lori White
try to receive
a prestigious
award for their outstanding support of
a comprehensive arts education.
In addition, our students consistent-
ly outperform their peers in the state
and nation on various assessments,


including the rigorous SAT and ACT
tests. They consistently receive honors
in academic and athletic competitions
in every area from debate, science
and Odyssey of the Mind to football,
cheerleading and video production.
The school district is especially
proud of the recognition received for
being fiscally responsible with the
taxpayers' dollars. Two independent
rating firms have rated Sarasota
County Public Schools at the top of
the state and nation, citing our sound
financial management.
Even though we enjoy a fine reputa-
tion for excellence, we still have much
work ahead of us.
We must find ways to close the
achievement gap with our low-
socioeconomic and minority students.
We must improve our graduation and


dropout rates, and we must enhance
our career and technical education
programs so that our students gradu-
ate with skills necessary for the 21st
Century workforce.
We need your help to accomplish
these tasks. Please consider becoming
a PALS volunteer to tutor or mentor
a child in need. Or sign up for our
Citizens Academy an exciting way
to learn about the workings of the
school district in nine interactive and
fun sessions. You even get to drive a
school bus.
Sarasota County has been classified
by the state as an "A" district, and I
know, with your assistance, we can
become a 360-degree "A" district,
where excellence is all around at
every level, with every person, in every
direction.

Sarasota County Schools Registration

FROM THE SARASOTA COUNTY I -1
SCHOOL DISTRICT l .I -m I


To register your child at the as-
signed school, call your school for an
appointment and bring:
Your child's original certified birth
certificate with a seal.
Written proof of address a
signed lease, FPL bill or water bill
that includes your name, address and
a current date.
Certificate of Immunization
(Form 680).
Your child's Social Security card (if
available).
Proof of a school physical exami-
nation within 12 months prior to the
initial entry into a Florida school.
Parents may also need to provide
documentation establishing legal
custody of the child.
You should also bring:
Name and address of previous
schools attended.
Any information available from
previous schools, such as report
cards, transcripts or student partici-
pation in special programs.
Under Florida law, children who
turn 5 on or before Sept. 1 are eligible
for kindergarten. Children 6 years old
on or before Sept. 1 are eligible for
the first grade, provided they have
successfully completed kindergarten
at a school from which the district
accepts transfer of academic credit.
There are no exceptions made to this
Florida law.

Volunteering
PALS Partners in Education coordi-
nates volunteer and business part-
nership activities within the school
district.
The PALS mission is to enhance ed-
ucational opportunities for students
through comprehensive community
involvement. By creating public
awareness, providing resources and
supporting and recognizing volun-
teerism and business partnerships,


PALS promotes partnerships and alli-
ances that link schools and commu-
nities through a variety of endeavors
Every person who visits a Sarasota
County school must be screened
through the national sexual predator/
offender database. The district uses
a program called RAPTOR to perform
the screening.
Although all school volunteers
must undergo a criminal background
check before they are allowed
to work in schools, they also are
required to be screened through
RAPTOR every time they visit a
school.
Two levels of background checks
that may be required of school
volunteers:
A Level I criminal background
screening is required for volunteers
who work with students in settings
directly supervised by school staff
(within sight or hearing). Level I
screenings are conducted by the
district's School Police/School Safety
Department through the PALS Count
registration process at no cost to the
volunteer.


AP FILE PHOTOS


Examples of volunteer assignments
that require Level I screening include
but are not limited to:, assisting a
teacher in the classroom; working in
an office, cafeteria or media center;
tutoring a student in academics in a
supervised setting; and chaperoning
on a daytime field trip with school
staff.
A Level II criminal background
screening is required for volunteers
who work with students in unsuper-
vised settings. A Level II screening
requires an FBI fingerprint check.
The screening may be done through
a community-based mentoring orga-
nization that submits documentation
to the PALS Office. Mentoring orga-
nizations and individuals also may
pay a fee to the school district SP/SS
Department for Level II background
screenings.
Examples of volunteer assign-
ments that require Level II screen-
ing include, but are not limited to,


working with a student in a setting
not supervised by school staff, and
transporting students other than
one's own children.
Although it is generally understood
that tutors work with students for
short periods under close supervision
and mentors have a longer-term,
more personal relationship with an
individual student, the distinction
between a tutor and a mentor is sub-
ject to some interpretation. Therefore
the level of criminal background
check required of a volunteer is de-
termined by the level of supervision
under which the volunteer works and
the nature of the interaction between
the volunteer and the student, not
whether the volunteer is designated
as a tutor or a mentor.
For more information, contact
the PALS Office at pals.office@
sarasotacountyschools.net or the
PALS specialist, Dr. Tanice Knopp, at
941-927-9000, ext. 31500.

By DIANNE SHIPLEY
SARASOTA COUNTY
HEALTH DEPARTMENT
With local schools scheduled to resume
Aug. 19, Sarasota County public health
and school officials want to remind
parents to get their child's immuniza-
tions updated now. Parents of children
entering schools in the county for the
first time must provide the school office
with a completed Florida Certification of
Immunization (DH 680).
Available through your healthcare pro-
vider or at Health Department locations
in North Port and Sarasota, this is the
official record showing that your school-
age children have had all the immuniza-
tions needed for their grade level.
By the time a child starts school, he should
have already had a number of required
immunizations. However, proof of updates,
boosters and series completion is required to
enter county schools for the first time and to
advance to some grade levels.

Buses are back on the road


- be careful


FROM THE SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Sarasota County School District
offers these back-to-school safety
reminders for motorists and students.
For motorists:
Stop for school buses. A school bus
will display flashing amber lights about
200 feet before it reaches a bus stop.
When stopped, it will display flashing
red lights and have a stop-sign arm
extended on the driver's side. Florida
law requires that motorists following
a school bus or approaching from the
opposite direction must stop a safe
distance from the bus when its flashing
red lights and stop sign are activated.
Traffic must stop in both directions on
all two-way streets and roads, including
those with turning lanes.
Vehicles travelling in the opposite
direction of a stopped school bus may
proceed at a safe speed only if the
street or road is divided by a physical


barrier, a raised median or an unpaved
space of at least 5 feet.
Slow down and watch carefully when
approaching a bus stop. Children
may not be paying attention to traffic.
Look on both sides of the road when
children are at bus stops. Students may
be crossing to get to the bus stop.
Watch for children on bicycles on
their way to school or a bus stop.
Follow the directions of crossing
guards so students can cross safely.
Slow down to posted speeds in
school zones during opening and
closing times.
Leave home earlier during the
first week of school to allow for
increased traffic.
For school bus riders:
Be alert to traffic. Check both ways
for cars before stepping off the bus.
Make eye contact with the bus
driver. Wait for the bus driver's signal
before you cross the street.
Walk in front of the bus; never


walk behind the bus to cross the
street.
While waiting for the bus, stay in
a safe place away from the street.
Never go under the bus to retrieve
something you've dropped.

Be aware of backpacks or loose
clothing that could get snagged on
bus doors or hardware.
Bus routes and schedules are
available on the district website:

County schools rank high again


BY ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER

In spite of a change in the way
school grades are calculated, the
Sarasota County School District
retained its A grade for the 2012-13
school year.
The district collected 21 A's, along
with 14 B's and just 4 C's.
In fact, 90 percent of Sarasota
County's elementary and middle
schools graded received an A or B for
the 2012-13 school year. High school
grades will be released at a later time.
However, 16 elementary, middle
and combination schools in Sarasota
County did see a decline in school
grades, according to school account-
ability reports released by the Florida
Department of Education.
In Venice, both Venice Middle
School and SKY Academy dropped
from an A last year to a B this year,
while Venice Elementary School
retained its A ranking.
"We're an excellent school district,"
School Board Chairwoman Jane
Goodwin said. "Unfortunately, the
formula used for determining grades
doesn't show just how excellent we
are. I'm gratified with how well we're
doing, considering the changes that
we've seen in the game."
Top education officials insisted
that the changes that kicked in this
year including a raise in required
writing test scores led to the dra-
matic decline. Other recent changes
include incorporating results from
new end-of-course exams.
With 54 percent of its schools
receiving an A, Sarasota County had
nearly twice as many A schools as the
state average, according to district
spokesman Gary Leatherman.
Statewide, the number of A schools
declined from 48 percent in 2012 to
29 percent in 2013.
Each year, the state hands out
A-to-F grades that are used to reward
top schools and sanction those that
get failing marks. The system has
been in place for more than a decade
and was the centerpiece of changes


Venice Elementary School got an A again this year, according to school grades recently released by ti
first put in place under then-Gov. Jeb 9 percent received D's or F's. This
Bush. year, those percentages were 55 and
Grades largely based on 17, respectively.
end-of-course exams and FCAT There was a similar trend at the
testing dropped statewide this middle-school level. Last year,

tary schools received As or B's, and pared with just 52 percent this year.

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!

Opening lead: Queen of 6
There are times when you know an
opponent is going to ruff one of your
winners. But you sometimes can
recover if the opponent does so at
your convenience, not theirs.
North might have tried three no
trump over South's balancing three
hearts. The odds were greatly in favor
of South holding at least one high
card in clubs, and nine tricks might
have been easier than 10.


West led the queen of spades,
covered by the king and ruffed by
East. East returned the ten of
diamonds to the jack, queen and ace.
Declarer drew trumps, but could not
avoid losing another trick in spades
and one in each minor for down one.
The bidding marks East with a
void in spades. Declarer can use that
knowledge to take advantage of his
spotcards in the suit. Suppose South
were to play a low spade from
dummy at trick one. West wins, but
whatever he does next is to declarer's
advantage. If West shifts to a new
suit, declarer has 10 tricks as long as
East holds the ace of clubs. If West
continues with a low spade, declarer
simply covers and, after ruffing, East
can do declarer no harm.
The most interesting line is if West
continues with the jack of spades.
Now declarer covers and East ruffs.
On the return ten of diamonds,
declarer wins, draws trumps and then
leads a spade, finessing the nine. A
diamond goes away on the ace of
spades and a club to the king delivers
the fulfilling trick.

RGraulo EX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan
Granuloma annulare are WORK WORK, WOR... TrAT'S
ALL YOU EVER THINK ABOUT! U /A
unsightly but harmless I'M SO NOT,
ightly


DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am 58 and have been di-
agnosed with granuloma
annulare, which I've had
for more than a year and
a half. I have both rings
(that start small, like a
cigarette burn, and then
get larger) and spots,
which look like birth-
marks. I tried changing
my diet, but it didn't
have any effect. I can't
wear shorts, because
they are unsightly. I am
told that there is no
remedy for this. I have
been using a topical
cream, clobetasol, which
doesn't seem to help. My
research tells me that it
usually goes away after
two years, but I also
have seen several cases
where it never goes away.
Please give me some
good news! D.R.
ANSWER: The good
news is that they usually
do go away (50 percent
within two years). They
don't turn into skin
cancer and, generally,
don't cause a lot of prob-
lems other than being
unsightly. Some studies
have associated granu-
loma annulare (GA) with
medical conditions such
as diabetes and cancer,
but it's not clear if this is
actually true.
The skin cream you
are using works for many
people, but an injec-
tion of a steroid is more
effective it's successful
in about 80 percent of
people. These can be
repeated in six to eight
weeks if needed.
The spots also can be
frozen with liquid nitro-
gen, but this can leave
scarring. Ultraviolet light
has been shown to be
helpful.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
I am an 84-year-old
woman in good health.
I had been diagnosed
with possible lupus since
1996, because of the high
sedimentation rate in my
blood. Since I had none
of the symptoms of this
autoimmune disease, my
blood samples were sent
to a lab. It came up with
the diagnosis of Sjogren's
syndrome. I have only
minimal dry eyes and
dry mouth. Is there any
chance that the abnor-
mal lab results could be
an aberration? E.R.
ANSWER: Blood tests
are very useful in help-
ing to make diagnoses,
but in the case of both
lupus (I mean systemic
lupus erythematosus)
and Sjogren's syndrome,
diagnosis can't be made
by lab tests alone. The
oon


Dr. Roach

sedimentation rate, or
ESR, usually is high in
these rheumatologic
diseases, but it can be
high for many reasons,
such as infection,
autoimmune disease
or malignancy. Older
women tend to have
higher levels normally.
A high ESR alone is not
diagnostic of any specific
condition.
SLE is a disease of
the body's immune
system, where multiple
systems are attacked.
The diagnosis of lupus is
made by a combination
of symptoms such as
rash, arthritis, neuro-
logic problems or kidney
disease. Blood-test
abnormalities alone
rarely make the diagno-
sis. Occasionally, a blood
test will turn positive
before other symptoms
develop.
Similarly, Sjogren's
syndrome is diagnosed if
there are both symptoms
of abnormal tear and
saliva production, and
biopsy and lab tests of
Sjogren's antibodies. If
you have the Sjogren's
antibodies and have
symptoms of eye and
mouth dryness, a
definitive diagnosis of
Sjogren's would still
require an abnormal eye
exam, salivary-gland
biopsy or abnormal
saliva tests.
Most conditions and
diseases range in sever-
ity from unnoticeable
to life-threatening. It's
possible you have a
relatively mild form of
Sjogren's that isn't going
to get any worse. It's also
possible that you have
a false-positive lab test,
and don't actually have
Sjogren's.

Answer: The guys at the pig roast -
CHEWED THE FAT


Why is the salt pink?


Dear Heloise: I saw pink
salt in the store the other
day. What is it, and how
is it used? Lydia N., via
email
The pink salt you
are seeing in stores is
Himalayan salt, which is
found deep within the
Himalayas. The beautiful
pink color comes from the
mineral content.
You can buy the salt in
plates, slabs, cubes and
fine or coarse grain. Use
the fine- or coarse-grained
salt like regular table salt
for foods. The slabs and
plates are available to serve
sushi or other appetizers
on. Heloise
PS.: You can make pink
salt by adding a few drops
of red food coloring to
regular table salt. Put the
salt in a bowl and keep
stirring until it's the color
you want.

Potato possibilities
Dear Heloise: Most
people are used to a
baked potato served with
sour cream and butter. I
enjoy baked potatoes and
all the different ingredi-
ents you can stuff in them
to make a meal, especially
leftovers. Try adding the
following next time you
want a quick meal:
Leftover chicken or
beef in a barbecue sauce,
topped with some cheese
and scallions.
Leftover taco meat,
sour cream, salsa, olives,
lettuce and cheese.
Leftover chili, sour
cream and cheese. New
York


Hints from Heloise

Steaming
vegetables
Dear Readers: To keep
as many vitamins in veg-
etables when cooking, try
steaming or microwaving
them rather than boiling
them in water. Vegetables
cooked on the stove at
high temperatures can
lose up to 30 percent of
their vitamins! Heloise

Couple of hints
Dear Heloise: I save
the juice or syrup from
canned fruit and use it in
place of sugar or simple
syrup in cocktails. My
favorite is to add manda-
rin orange juice to mar-
garitas in place of sugar. It
sweetens the drink, adds
a little flavor and blends
in instantly. Cherry juice
adds sweetness, flavor and
a pretty color to lemonade.
I keep a mixture of
cinnamon and sugar in
a clear glass saltshaker.
The clear glass lets me
determine what the
content is, and the shaker
is handy for sprinkling on
toast or in hot drinks like
cocoa and coffees. Lisa

Harried phone survey taker

pleads for a little respect
DEAR ABBY: I'm hoping
you will pass this on to your
readers. Many of us these
days have to work two jobs


to make ends meet. In
addition to a full-time job, I
work a second one in a call
center. Yes, I'm one of those
dreaded people who call
and ask you to do a phone
survey.
What I would like to
remind everyone is that
we are just people on the
other end of the line. I have
been cursed at and called
names you can't print in
your column. I have had the
phone slammed in my ear.
A little courtesy would go a
long way.
If you don't want to
participate in the survey,
that's fine. We understand
that. But have the guts to
say, "Not interested" or "No,
thank you," and show a little
respect. We're simply trying
to do a job, earn a living and
pay our bills like everybody
else.- HAPPY TO BE
EMPLOYED
DEAR HAPPYTO BE
EMPLOYED: I am not
excusing poor manners,
and I do sympathize with
your position. But when
companies make these
incessant calls, they are
entering people's homes
without being invited, and
it can make some of them
very angry, particularly if
they have been interrupted
while were eating, working,
napping or caregiving.
The people you call might
be less hostile if they hadn't
been called repeatedly
and asked to participate
in these surveys after they
had refused four, five or six
times and had asked not to
be called again. They might
be more polite if they hadn't
registered on a "Do Not
Call" list that was ignored.
DEARABBY:Iam
recently retired. My daily
routine is filled with activi-
ties that keep me busy.
My problem is relatives
who retired a few years ago
who are bored out of their
minds. They show up at
my home unannounced
at all hours of the day and
disrupt my routine. They
assume I have nothing
to do like them. I am not
interested in baby-sitting
these people so their wives
won't have to put up with
them. What should I do? -
RETIRED IN BOSTON


Dear Abby

DEAR RETIRED: Tell your
relatives nicely that
you have a definite routine
and things scheduled that
you must attend to. If you
feel they would be receptive,
suggest that they drop by a
senior center and ask about
what activities it offers or
look for volunteer oppor-
tunities in the community.
Then suggest that instead of
dropping by, they call first to
see if you are available.
DEAR ABBY: My best
friend's mother has demen-
tia. It is usually worse in the
evenings, but she can func-
tion during the day- some-
what My friend and her
husband both work, leaving
the mother alone at home
during the day with the door
locked from the outside so
she can't wander off.
I have told my friend
many times how dangerous
this is, but she continues
to do it. It makes me sick
worrying about her mother,
but I don't know what to
do about it. FRIEND IN
FLORIDA
DEAR FRIEND: Your
friend and her husband may
have the best of intentions,
but locking a demented
person inside the house
is not the answer to their
problem. If a fire were to
start, she might not be "with
it" enough to know how to
put it out or summon help.
She could also fall and injure
herself.
A better solution would
be to find a day-care
program where the mother
would have company, be
entertained and safely
looked after. Please suggest
it to them. However, if they
are not receptive, Adult
Protective Services should
be notified because the
woman's life could depend
on it.
TO MY MUSLIM
READERS: It's time for the
breaking of the Ramadan
fast. Happy Eid al-Fitr,
everyone. May God make
yours a blessed feast.


"A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth and a
word spoken in due season, how good is it!"- Prov. 15:23.
