Venice hospital deal may be in jeopardy


By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER

Almost as soon as it was
announced, the proposed
sale of the company that
owns Venice Regional Medical
Center (VRMC) started hitting
potholes.
On Monday, it may have
fallen into one.
Naples-based Health
Management Associates
(HMA) announced on July 30
that it was being bought by
Tennessee-based Community
Health Systems (CHS) for
$7.6 billion in cash and stock,


including the
assumption of
$3.7 billion in
debt.
HMA, the
subject of
several federal
investigations,
was already
in a battle for
board control
with Glenview
Capital
Management,
an invest-
ment firm
that owns 14.6
percent of its

shares and
9.4 percent
of CHS.
Glenview
pledged the
same day
to continue
its effort to
unseat the
HMA board.
The very
next day,
according to
a Knoxville
News Sentinel
report, at
least seven
law firms


announced they had launched
investigations on behalf of
HMA shareholders to look into
possible breaches of fidu-
ciary duty on the part of HMA
management.
A day after that, Justini
Aliaga, an HMA shareholder,
filed a class-action lawsuit in
Collier County trying to stop
the sale.
"The proposed acquisition
does not adequately reflect
the company's value and
will unfairly divest Health
Management's public share-
holders of their interests in the
company," Aliaga told the Fort


Myers New Press.
Then on Monday, Glenview
announced it had submitted
documents to HMA showing
that it has consents from more
than 50 percent of HMA's
shareholders to replace the
board with its own slate of di-
rectors. Glenview had rejected
an HMA proposal to seat a
blended board a week earlier.
HMA said it needs to
verify the consents before
responding.

Local lobsters lauded

Venice's new delicacy:


North Port lobsters


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A new tasty competitor to
the popular Maine lobster has
made its debut in Venice.
The Australian Blue lobster,
bred in North Port, was the
focus of attention with the
opening last week of the
Farmers Market. The first of
more than 300,000 of those
Australian lobsters being
raised locally was the star
attraction at this new South
Venice store.
Noel and Cindy Amaro
opened this fruit, vegetable
and lobster store at 2189
Tamiami Trail South across
from Bank of America to meet
increasing demand for their
farm-sold products. Owner
operators of West Coast Aqua
Farms in North Port, they
have built an aquaponic farm
where they grow organic
produce.
Ten years ago, they came
from Miami with a dream
to buy a farm to raise tilapia
but possible power shortages
would kill the fish. Instead,
they chose to grow fruits and


vegetables without earth and
pesticides. Their farm is simi-
lar to DisneyWorld's "Earth
Project," which demonstrates
how all fruit and vegetables
can be grown without soil.
Growing produce verti-
cally upwards on posts each
holding 20 crops, they have
achieved on three acres

Future of police,



fire departments



in pension talks


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
The Venice City Council ad-
mitted this week it's unlikely to
make any substantial progress
this year in resolving the city's
burgeoning pension liability,
sparking discussion about what
level of police and fire service
residents should expect.
Pension payments increased
by $500,000 this year. The city's
police department budget
accounts for 36.5 percent of the
city's general revenue (taxpayer
funded) budget, while the
fire department accounts for
27.8 percent.
Mayor John Holic issued a
pointed message for taxpayers
at Tuesday's council meeting,
sounding the alarm about
future tax increases or cuts in


services if something isn't done
to rein in the city's police and
fire pension plan liability.
"We got through (this year's)
budget with relatively small
millage (increase)," Holic said.
"I don't know if it will be the
same next year. I see a substan-
tial increase in the millage in
the future."
"It's nothing the police or
firefighters did wrong. It was a
program designed way too rich,
then monitored unfortunately
by those with rose-colored
glasses."
Holic blasted Finance
Director Jeff Snyder, who is
suing the city over an employ-
ment contract dispute, for not
warning city leaders earlier.
"I'm doing this because of

ThreeVenetians were arrested
Monday related to a couple of
residential burglaries that
included stolen firearms and a
Mazda Miata sports car.
According to heavily redacted
Venice Police Department prob-
able cause affidavits, the ring
operated out of an apartment in
the 500 block of Barcelona Avenue
in downtown Venice a block
away from city hall.
Arrested were Richard Allen
Olsson, 27, Bryce Aaron Holder,
27, and Amber Marie Kelly, 26-
all fromVenice.
The burglaries of two homes,
one carried out while oc-
cupied, were reported in June.
Fingerprints were taken from the
crime scenes.
But it was Holder's arrest by the
North Port Police Department
in late July on an unrelated
outstanding warrant that moved
along the case for Venice
Detective Keith Quick
Quick reported Holder was
found by North Port Police in


possession of a
large bag full of
women's jewelry,
unique coins and
currency taken
from the Venice
residential burglar-
ies. He was willing
to talk with the OLSSON
Venice detective.
Holder made
admissions regard-
ing a number of
crimes, including
theft in which
he and Olsson
allegedly took some
of the jewelry and
pawned the items HOLDER
for cash.
On June 5,
VPD reported a
residential burglary
in the 700 block
of North Armada
Street. The burglary
occurred during
daylight hours. The KELLY
entry was forced,
according to police records. Stolen
were two wallets containing

Sea turtle nests hatching, light disorienting


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

Linda Soderquist is
celebrating the 101 log-
gerhead sea turtle nests on
Little Gasparilla Island.
Last year, Little
Gasparilla Island's log-
gerhead nest total was
123, the highest number
of nests in a decade. The
highest count was 177 in
2000 and lowest count on
the island was 75 in 2007.
But Soderquist's celebra-
tion is tempered by some
disappointment.
"We had three hatchling
disorientations this week,"
Soderquist wrote in an
email to the Sun. She is
the state primary permit
holder overseeing volun-
teer sea turtle patrols on
Little Gasparilla Island.
"With no moon, they
have only the 'sky glow'
from Englewood to guide
them," Soderquist said.
"They are picked off by
predators along the way.
Some traveled farther
than 800 feet before


getting grabbed.
"None made it to the
water," she said. As for
predators on the four
disorientations we have
had this year, tracks from
coyotes, ghost crabs, bob-
cat, and armadillo were all
present.
"We have had nest pre-
dations from coyotes, and
their tracks on the beach
is a daily occurrence,"
Soderquist said.
Besides the 101 logger-
head sea turtle nests, as of
Aug. 9, Soderquist reported
one green turtle nest.
On Manasota Key, Zoe
Bass andWilma Katz -
who oversee the Coastal
Wildlife Club's sea turtle
patrols report 2,588
loggerhead nests, 61 green
turtle nests and one
Kemp's ridley nest. Nesting
green sea turtles have been
particularly abundant this
nesting season.
'And the greens keep
coming," Bass said.
But like Soderquist, Bass
reported a few disorienta-
tions of hatchlings. Bass


suspects the urban lighting
reflected in the sky glow
from the city of Venice may
have been the cause.
Both Sarasota and
Charlotte counties' sea
turtle ordinances call for
the shielding or turning off
of lights shining onto Gulf
beaches from May 1 to
Oct. 31. However, Bass said
the glow of artificial light-
ing from urbanized areas
lights the sky in "layers."
Katz said it makes sense
for her withVenice's sky
glow from urban lightning
north of Manasota Key,
while for Soderquist sky
glow from Englewood -
which is north of Little
Gasparilla Island would
lead to disorientations.
As the sea turtle ordi-
nances become more
effective, Katz said, the
vulnerability of sea turtles
to urbanized sky glow
grows more apparent.
According to a 1996
Florida Fish andWildlife
Conservation Commission
technical report by Blair E.
Witherington and R. Erik


PHOTO PROVIDED BY MOTE MARINE LABORATORY


These loggerhead hatchlings begin their life's journey. This season local beaches are seeing high
numbers of sea turtle nests, but many hatchlings are becoming disoriented by the glow of lights
from Englewood and Venice and are being eaten by coyotes, armadillos and other predators.


Martin, artificial lightning
can disrupt sea turtle
females and hatchlings
emerging from the nests.
Hatchlings are particu-
larly susceptible since their
instincts tell them to seek
the natural light reflected
off the waters of the Gulf,
Atlantic and other bodies


of water.
"On naturally lighted
beaches, hatchlings escap-
ing from nests show an im-
mediate and well-directed
orientation toward the
water," Witherington and
Martin wrote. "Hatchlings
become misdirected
because of their tendency


to move in the brightest
direction, especially when
the brightness of one di-
rection is overwhelmingly
greater than the brightness
of other directions, condi-
tions that are commonly
created by artificial light
sources."

Water shortage orders expire


PROVIDED BY
SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER
MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
The Southwest Florida
Water Management
District's governing board
has voted to let all water
shortage orders expire.
Residents living within
the district's boundaries


are still asked to observe
the district's year-round
conservation measures.
However, some local
governments may impose
different schedules or
retain stricter measures.
Residents should check
with their local govern-
ments before changing


their irrigation schedule.
The governing board
allowed the water short-
age orders to expire in
response to significant
improvements in aquifer
and river levels as a
result of this summer's
above-average rainfall.
The region's major public


water suppliers have also
been able to capture and
store large supplies of
water to meet the needs of
residents.
Year-round conservation
measures include watering
up to twice a week and
allow residents additional
flexibility for determining


when to water.
Residents are encour-
aged to water only if their
lawn and landscape needs
it and turn off their irriga-
tion system if it has rained
or rain is predicted in the
next 24 hours. Some of the
signs that a lawn needs
water include a blue-gray


appearance, blades folded
in half lengthwise and
footprints remaining on
the lawn for several min-
utes after walking on it.

tion on the district's
year-round conservation
measures, visit: water

FROM PAGE 4
inappropriate actions on
himself. Another photo
shows a letter a victim
says the man left solicit-
ing help in his actions in
return for money.
The Venice Police
Department is now on
the case.
"They contacted me
this morning and asked
what kind of communica-
tions and pictures I had;
anything that could help.
They said they are actively
looking for the individu-
al," Abbruzzino said.
Venice Police Chief Tom
McNulty confirms this is
the man they would like
to question about the
incident. In fact, the chief
says they're working three
other cases just like it in
just the past few days.
"Beginning on
Saturday, we have had
four cases where a
white male has exposed
himself near the beach
area," McNulty said.
Two of them were near
the fishing pier 10 hours
apart. Then a third near
the OldVenice Pub, and a
fourth on Monday back on
the beach near the pier.
WWSB 7 also learned
about a fifth incident
reported near Caspersen
Beach, which is an area
known for certain sexual
activities.
What's really new, says
the chief, is that note.
"I can't remember
where somebody has


done this and left a note.
I have worked sex crimes
here for many years as
a detective. It's a new
variation," McNulty said.
From the photo, police
believe they are looking
for a white male in his 30s
or 40s. Victims say he's
around 5 feet 7 inches,
170 pounds with a tattoo
on his right upper arm.
They are hopeful some
extra eyes out there will
help.
"Social media is great.
It can hurt you or it can
help you. In this case it
can only help," McNulty

the report states. It's
unclear what happened
next, but the victim was
able to get in touch with
police, who questioned
Mullen a short time
later. He told authorities
the victim sustained her
injuries including a
bruised neck, bloody
nose and swollen
forehead when she
head-butted him while
he was trying to have
sex with her.

the burglar thought he
had prevented evidence
of his crime.
Around 2:30 a.m. on
Aug. 11, the officer was
in the 400 block of S.


Tamiami Trail, when he
heard a loud noise be-
hind the building where
a cleaners and liquor
store are located. When
the officer investigated,
he found Eric Michael
Weed, who could not
explain his presence
and was consequently
arrested for loitering and
prowling.
Around 8 a.m., the
manager of the liquor
store reported to po-
lice that power to the
breaker box of the build-
ing had been turned off
around 2:30 a.m., which
in turn turned off power
to a surveillance camera.
The video from the
camera showed Weed
opening the door of the
store's delivery truck,
removing a large tent
or awning and hiding it
behind the dumpster,
then with the aid of a

'Sliding' not yet in Sarasota County


STAFF REPORT
Surveillance video shows
it all: An unsuspecting
woman is pumping gas, her
back turned to her vehicle.
Another car pulls up
alongside the soon-to-be
victim, and an individual
quietly exits the newly
arrived car, opening the pas-
senger door of the woman's


car, grabbing her purse, and
taking off.
Called "sliding," the
incidents have taken
place in NewYork, Texas,
Washington, D.C., Tampa
and Miami, according to
reports, with the thieves
usually captured on gas
station surveillance videos.
The process is so quick, in
some cases it only takes


19 seconds.
It's called "sliding"
because of the way thieves
slide in below the eye line
of the would-be victim,
taking purses or cellphones
or computers, whatever the
victim is keeping in their
passenger or rear seat.
Although "sliding" hasn't
been an issue locally, law
enforcement agencies are


urging caution.
North Port Police Capt.
Tony Sirianni said his advice
is "real simple," simply
make sure you always lock
your doors when you exit
your vehicle for any length
of time. Sirianni added he
was going to "knock on
wood" that sliding never
takes a foothold in Sarasota
County.

Bill Buck Chevrolet moves into digital age


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS EDITOR

Moving into the
technology era, auto
manufacturers continue
rolling out new vehicles,
and dealerships follow
suit by introducing styl-
ish franchise recognition
marquees. Not only are
the vehicles part of this
transformation but the
customers' importance is
recognized with personal
recognition by greeters,
spacious relaxation
lounges and digital wait-
ing areas.
"The day when you
received the keys to your
new vehicle from a sales-
man holding an umbrella
have long disappeared,"
said Eric Calkins, dealer-
ship director of Bill Buck
Chevrolet. "Today the
buyer expects an op-
portunity to meet the
sales managers, relax
in a spacious waiting
area, have cookies and
refreshments and watch
flatscreen televisions
while children enjoy their
own play area."
Driving along South
Tamiami Trail, motorists
can't fail to see the major


renovations taking place
at the long established
dealership.
"We know it is now
a digital world and our
guests have these expec-
tations so we are going
to make sure we fulfill
them," Calkins said.
The new face and state
of the art, completely
remodeled dealership is
projected to open in time
for a 'Happy Halloween"
celebration event.
The dealership was a
little metal building with
an open air showroom
and a metal A-frame shed
that Bill Buck Sr. saw in
1967 when he purchased
Duncan Chevrolet in
Venice. Prior to arriving
here, he had been operat-
ing his first Chevrolet
dealership in Dewitt,
Mich., for 20 years.
During the next
46 years, the dealership
went through four sig-
nificant remodels; the last
took place 15 years ago.
As contractors recently
began peeling back layers
of the building, they
found all the different
additions over the years.
Bill Buck Jr. passed
away a few years ago. His


father, founder Bill Buck
Sr., maintained an inter-
est in the business and
was a decision maker
when four years ago the
family decided it was
time for the facelift.
Unfortunately, he
would not live to see the
project, passing away a
year ago at 97 years. He
will be remembered in
the new project with an
area of photographs and
memorabilia devoted to
the evolution of Bill Buck
Chevrolet from the 1940s
to the present.
The business is now
operated by Robin and
Eric Calkins. They are
Venetians born in Venice
Hospital who grew up
and met at Venice High
School. She is the daugh-
ter of Bill Buck Jr. and is
now the owner, inheriting
the dealership franchise.
Eric is the dealer.
"What you will see
very soon will be the
huge, 30-feet-high big
blue arch of Chevrolet at
the entryway, our new
identity feature," he said.
Sales professionals will
meet customers walking
through the arches, who
will see a display of new


cars on the showroom
floor. At a central desk
will be a greeter to give
directions to sales, ser-
vice and the body shop.
Space is being tripled
in the service depart-
ment with a reception
where the service
personnel will meet and
interact with customers.
Wireless internet will op-
erate throughout, and in
the waiting area will be a
coffee bar with refresh-
ments, large TVs and a
children's playroom.
A full-service dealer-
ship, they work on
all makes of vehicles.
Service and parts depart-
ments are being divided
and for regular mainte-
nance and servicing, they
are enlarging the drive-in
to three lanes with greet-
ers to meet customers.
The project price tag is
in the millions, admit-
ted Calkins, including
$186,000 of new lighting
and all new contem-
porary, comfortable
furniture throughout. A
major investment is be-
coming eco-friendly, not
using solvents, possibly
being the only facil-
ity in the county using


RENDERING PROVIDED BY BLUE WAVE PRODUCTIONS
The new 2014 appearance of the Bill Buck Chevrolet dealer-
ship will be focused around the stylish blue arches with many


upgrades.

water-based paints based
on the latest technology.
Customer parking
space will be doubled
and after the remodel,
the servicing department
will be open six days a
week. Two years ago,
Calkins consolidated the
new and pre-owned into
a sales team with every
sales professional having
knowledge about all
vehicles.
Some of the 50 employ-
ees have worked there
for more than 40 years,
others 20 years and there
is a two-year plan to see
growth with hiring.
The buildings are


increasing as they are
adding a covered, lighted
area where buyers will
take delivery of new
cars. Part of the focus
of the overall change
is tearing down those
walls customers typically
perceive about an auto
dealership, removing the
stereotypes, Calkins said.
"Business is picking
up, and we have seen
significant gains exceed-
ing 20 percent," Calkins
said. "I am excited about
reinvesting the dollars
into our business and the
franchise because I see
nothing but good things
coming."


Smart Smoke Vapors offers new way to smoke


Cut back and
quit smoking with
E-cigarettes for a health-
ier lifestyle, said Max
Ellis, who has opened
Smart Smoke Vapors,
4107 South Tamiami
Trail in Venice Village
Shoppes across from the
Walmart Superstore in
South Venice.
The device, powered by
a battery charged for two
hours, will provide 12
to 15 hours of "vaping"
pleasure. According to
Ellis, the product pro-
vides at least 80 percent
savings and health
benefits because there is
no tar or carcinogens.
The inserted atomizer
contains e-juice, which

tered with the loss of
more than 80 jobs in
June of 2012, recently
changed hands in a

less than the sale in
September 2012.
Built in 1981, the
large, 60,953-square-
foot store sits on a
prime 6.3-acre site at
1590 U.S. 41 Bypass


South across from
Bonefish Grill.

division of BRNK LLC,
9 West 57th St., New

property for $2,657,200
from COMM 2006-F112

City puts charter referendum on hold, cites expense


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

City leaders have
decided not to incur
the expense of a special
election in order to place
amendments to the city's
charter before voters.
City Council made the
determination Tuesday
at its regular meeting.
So far, there haven't been
any challengers to the
city's three council seats up
for election. Incumbents
Mayor John Holic, and
Council Members Jeanette
Gates and Bob Daniels are
running for second terms.
Without any opponents,

credit cards, a set of car
keys, jewelry, and a green
Mazda Miata.
Two days later, detectives
located the Miata parked
in a covered parking area
adjacent to the defendants'
apartment building.
Around the same date,
another home was burglar-
ized in the 700 block of
Valencia Street. Detective
Quick reported that
numerous items of jewelry,
a laptop computer, silver
flatware and a stainless
steel Mossberg pump-ac-
tion 12-gauge shotgun from
the residence were found in
Holder's possession.
Police put the value of
that heist at $22,000, and
implicated Olsson in the
Valencia Street burglary.
A search of Holder's
and Olsson's pawn shop
transactions confirmed the
sale of the suspected stolen
property.
On July 31, VPD executed
a search warrant for the 500
block Barcelona Avenue
apartment, whose pri-
mary resident was listed as
Amber Kelly. The search,
conducted at 1:33 a.m.,
resulted in the discovery


there would be no need
for a city election in
November.
It's an "off" election
year, with no county
commission races or leg-
islative races either. And
no reason, say council
members, to incur the
extra expense of a refer-
endum on issues that are
not pressing.
"There is nothing in
the charter amendments
that is time-critical,"
Mayor John Holic said.
"Everything in here can
still be important (later)
as it is today, without
the expense of a $20,000
special election."


of stolen property from
the burglaries detailed by
Holder in the precise loca-
tions he described.
Police also recovered a
stolen Mack 10, 9mm pistol
and three stolen gold rings.
Kelly was charged with
armed burglary, grand
larceny of a firearm, and
larceny of more than
$20,000 but less than
$100,000.
She was also charged
with contributing to the
delinquency of a minor
because she left her infant
child in the car during at
least one of the burglaries.
The child was placed in
the state's custody. She was
released on $29,500 bond.
Holder faces 13 charges,
including: burglary of an
occupied dwelling, larceny,
grant vehicle theft, fraud,
armed burglary, larceny,
and trafficking in stolen
property and fraud for
providing false information
to a pawn shop dealer. He's
being held in the Sarasota
County jail without bond.
Olsson faces seven
charges, including armed
burglary, larceny, traffick-
ing in stolen property and
fraud for providing false
information to a pawn shop
dealer. He remains in jail on
$83,500 bond.

City Clerk Lori Stelzer
said it's still possible the
county may hold another
special election in the next
few months on which the
city could piggyback its
charter referendum, but it's
unlikely.
Council made the
decision this week in
time for county officials
to prepare ballots just in
case a special election
was called. Technically,
if no challenger files
for council seats in the
next few weeks, the state
presumes incumbents will
vote for themselves and
they automatically win
1-0 without going through

a press statement. "The
HMA board is committed
to ensuring an orderly
transition if the written
consents delivered by
Glenview are validated by
the independent inspec-
tor of election.
"The company will
provide further informa-
tion when the review

inspector of election is

HMA didn't give a
timetable for the inspec-
tion. Glenview antici-
pates a quick transition,
however.
"Led by future HMA
Chairman Steven
Shulman, the nominees
will be in contact with
the outgoing HMA board
and their advisors to en-
sure a smooth transition
to be effected this week,"
its statement says.

OUR VIEW


Florida Forever funding deserves to be preserved


We rarely welcome state con-
stitutional amendments, but
a new initiative launched by
a coalition of statewide groups could
solve the problem caused by legisla-
tive raids of preservation trust funds
and ensure an appropriate amount
of money is set aside to make Florida
a greener, healthier place to live and
visit.
The Florida Water and Land Legacy
Campaign aims to enact a consti-
tutional amendment that would set
aside one-third of the existing docu-
mentary stamp tax the state tax
on real estate transactions for the
preservation of natural resources.
Among the many organizations
involved are the Florida Wildlife
Federation, the Sierra Club, Wildlife
Florida, the League of Women Voters,
1,000 Friends of Florida and the Trust
for Public Land. They hope to gather
nearly 700,000 signatures on peti-
tions and place the initiative on the


November 2014 ballot.
As the group points out, some
2.4 million acres have been protected
through the Florida Forever and
Preservation 2000 programs in recent
decades.
With the onset of the Great
Recession, however, land preserva-
tion was deemed a luxury. Since 2009,
preservation funding has been cut by
more than 97 percent. In 2012, only
$8.5 million in a budget of nearly
$70 billion was allocated for pres-
ervation of water resources, wildlife
habitat, parks and natural areas. Of
the $75 million approved this year
by the Scott administration and the
Legislature, two-thirds will come from
the sale of existing public lands.
Scott made a small step to get back
on track this year, but the program
is too important to be subject to the
year-to-year political whims. With
the continuing stress of population
growth and development, the state


needs a solid source of investment
and a continued commitment to
protection of resources.
Just think about Sarasota County.
Are there areas that you find beautiful,
perhaps with giant trees, or a small
pond, or a regular gathering of ani-
mals? Now imagine that spot covered
by a strip shopping mall.
You've probably heard the joke
about how housing developments and
shopping centers are named. They
are named by what used to be there
- Pine Hills, Fox Run, Winding Creek,
you name it.
That's why something like Florida
Forever is so important. We need to be
saving those areas of Florida large and
small that are important.
A priority list developed by Florida
Forever identifies another 2 million
acres that should be preserved. Setting
aside a portion of an existing tax could
bring as much as $10 billion into the
state's Land Acquisition Trust Fund


in the two decades between 2015 and
2035, when the constitutional amend-
ment would sunset.
The trust fund money would
buy and manage land that protects
drinking water sources. It would help
maintain wildlife and marine habitat.
It would help restore the Everglades
and protect the beaches, springs and
rivers we depend on for recreation,
tourism and our economy. It would
preserve farmland.
The ongoing investment would help
ensure our environmental heritage
and establish a legacy for future
generations. Preservation of natural
resources is something Floridians of
all stripes have been rightfully proud
of for many decades, and something
they can be proud of for many years
to come.

OONRS ASSOCIATE THEY'VE HAD A COMPLAINT
There's a difference IT'S A LETTER FROM THE THEY'VE HAb A COMPLAINT
HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION. OT MY
between mistakes and bias ,^ouT MY SHIRT


I jjjde61


If this message gets through to
at least one of those people who
so cleverly refer to our paper as
the "Gondo-liar," then it won't
have been a waste of time.
Yes, we hear you say that, and
we find it every bit as amusing
as you would if we twisted your
name into a derogatory term in
a story.
Even though this is "only" a
community paper, we take our
journalism very seriously. We
try very hard to get stories right,
and to be fair in reporting them.
Usually we succeed; sometimes
we don't. But on those rare oc-
casions that we err, we never get
something wrong on purpose;
that is, we never and I do
mean never- slant a story for
any reason.
If you've read this far and you
disagree, please keep reading.
A story can be incorrect for a
lot of reasons other than bias.
The big one is human error.
If we hear something wrong,
write it down wrong or make a
typo while writing it, a story will
contain a mistake.
Ideally, the reporter will catch
it before turning the story over
to an editor, or the editor will
spot it, if not, and the mistake
won't make it into print.
It depends, though, on the
mistake. Not every error makes
a red flag pop up in front of the
people who read a story prepub-
lication, and even some of the
ones that do can sneak through
under deadline pressure or just
because everyone involved is, in
fact, human.
We also make mistakes be-
cause we get bad or incomplete
information. If someone with
important data isn't available,
chooses not to cooperate or
otherwise doesn't give us the
full picture accidentally or
on purpose a story could be
wrong, and we might not know.
Fairness requires that we try
to report as many significant
sides of a story as possible. If
only one side is available, the
story should tell of our efforts to
contact the other side or sides.
If we've made a good faith
but unsuccessful effort, then
we'll publish the story anyway,
because to hold a story until the
other side speaks gives it control
over whether we report it. That's
no way to run a newspaper. And
there's always another edition
for a follow-up story.
Sometimes there is really
only one side. In a feature story
about someone who received
an award, we're not going to go
looking for people who don't


like him so the story will be
"balanced." Similarly, if we
write about domestic battery,
you don't expect us to interview
someone in favor of it even
though, if you read Police Beat,
some people seem to be.
Our only agenda is to report
the news, on the news pages.
The opinion pages are another
matter, but we don't shape
news stories to support our
editorial position on any issue.
We don't have the separation of
news and opinion departments
you'd find at a bigger paper,
but we don't have any problem
keeping the two mindsets
separate.
We don't write stories for
financial gain either, other than
our paychecks. In my 13 years
here, no one has ever offered
me anything to write or not to
write a story, and I'm confident
the other writers would say the
same thing. It almost never
happens at any paper, so why
would someone in this area be
trying to buy us off?
No local story is worth the
kind of money that would make
any of us consider committing
a fireable offense.
Just as we don't slant stories
for political or financial rea-
sons, we don't try to tailor them
to the views of our readers. That
means you'll like some stories
and won't like others. And that's
OK.
Remember, though, the fact
that you disagree with a story
doesn't make it wrong. Allow
for the possibility that you have
some biases, and your natural
reaction to something that
doesn't agree with you is that
it's wrong. In my time here,
I have yet to hear someone
complain about bias in a story
he or she liked.
If we get something wrong,
we want to know about it. If
you have a different point of
view, we want to know about
that too. Send a letter to the
editor or call Let'em Have It.
But don't say we're wrong or
biased unless you have facts to
show it.
No one reading this has
never made a mistake, and I've
certainly made my share. The
difference between your mis-
takes and ours is that we make
them in print and online (and
have to own up to them that
way, too). That means there
are thousands of witnesses to
them, some of whom are eager
without any evidence other
than the mistake itself to accuse
us of bias or shoddy reporting.
There's a saying in medicine
that pertains to diagnoses:
When you hear hoofbeats, think
horses, not zebras. That is, don't
propose an exotic explanation
for something much more
likely to have a simple one.
I propose a corollary for
journalism: When you see a
mistake, think mistake, not
bias. You'll almost always be
right.

Bad to dogs. Why does the
Venice city government allow
animal cruelty? I think the dog
parks should be closed in the

we shouldn't expect the dogs to

Swimming event adds to area sports tourism


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
On the heels of finding
out it's been recommend-
ed to host the 2017 World
Rowing Championship,
Sarasota County got
word it has been se-
lected to host another
major national sporting
event the National
Masters Swimming

some things I saw in the
budget," Holic said. "You
look at this (proposed bud-
get) book. There's nothing
here to show where it falls
short, where it's out of
whack. No recommenda-
tion by the finance director
about spending too much
in one place.
"We're going to take this
financial responsibility
on ourselves and find out
where the problems are."
A number of council
members agreed some-
thing needs to be done,
opening up the debate on
whether to continue with
the current level of police
and fire service, or scale
those services back.
"I'm supportive of your
concerns," said Council
Member Kit McKeon,
who suggested holding a
workshop on the issue.
Council headed down
that path before, then
decided to hold those
discussions during confi-
dential bargaining strategy
meetings.
The mayor's concerns
indicate not much prog-
ress was made.
"We have to tackle
that 800-pound gorilla,"
McKeon said. "It concerns
me we kicked that can
down the road again this
year. I personally believe
(residents) want our own
fire and police depart-
ments. We have to figure
out how to control those
costs."
Council Member Dave
Sherman agreed.
"We can be part of the
problem or part of the
solution," Sherman said.
"To kick this can down the
road I believe is incredibly
irresponsible. That should
be a decision taxpay-
ers should make. I, as a
consumer, and residents
want a full service commu-
nity and (we) are willing
to pay for it. It's not about
cost cutting. We are in the
service business.
"We are starving. We're
in crisis. We need to feed
everybody. We need to
raise the cost of (the)
hamburger."
Council Member Bob
Daniels agreed on the need
to curb pension costs.
"This thing's out of con-
trol. We've got a long ways
to go in how we manage
the money the city gets,"
he said.
Holic reminded the
council of the experience
by the city of Sarasota. It
decided in 1988 to do away
with its city-sponsored
pension plan. But even
last year, payments for the
long-gone pension plan
payments are still the No.
2 line item in its budget
more than 20 years later,
comprising 17 percent of
its general fund.
"Give us the facts and
the guidelines," Holic said.
"That's really all we are
asking for at this point."
Council agreed to
hold a workshop on the
issue. A date has yet to be
determined.

Deep Indians defensive line dominating


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

Defenses being ahead
of offenses early in fall
camp is a familiar foot-
ball theme, from the high
school level to the pros.
ButVenice head coach
John Peacock would
be excused if he were
alarmed at the extent
to which the Indians
defense dominated the
offense during Monday's
practice.
"They're always a little
ahead in the beginning,"
Peacock said.
With starting center
Bo Rydecki sidelined
until Thursday with an
injury, the Indians had a
difficult time just getting
shotgun snaps to the
quarterback. Even when
they did, the d-line was
in the backfield causing
havoc.
"We keep a lot of
fresh, aggressive bodies
in there," said first-year
defensive line coach
Mark Cristiani, who
was a team captain
and all-area defensive
end on Venice's 2003
squad before earning
all-conference honors
at Eastern Kentucky.
"We're really blessed to
have some talented guys
who would be starters at
other places and for us,
they're happy to be able
to rotate in and get after
it."
Peacock and Cristiani
were both encouraged
by the play of senior
defensive ends Trevor
Lamp and Harrison
Miller, among others.
"Lamp and Miller are
playing outstanding,"

Peacock said. "There
are some guys that are
doing a heck of a job
on defense. They've got
some players over there."
Cristiani mentioned
senior Dan Barrett,
junior Alex Hoag and
sophomore Jerod Hewitt
as others who have stood
out through the first
eight days of practice.
Monday, the offensive
and defensive linemen
worked on their hand
placement and tech-
nique during physically
grueling individual drills.
"We have a very dif-
ficult schedule," Cristiani
said. "Line play comes
down to if you can defeat
a one-on-one block.
It's not enough to be a
try-hard, want-to guy.
You have to be a guy who
couples that with really
great technique and un-
bridled aggressiveness."
As for the offense,

Venice grad Butler finds her niche at Saint Francis


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Paige Butler had a
successful freshman
season for the Stetson
University women's soc-
cer team.
But that wasn't enough
for Butler, who is with
her third program in
three years.
Formerly at Venice
High School, Butler
started nine of the 16
games she played as a
defender for the 4-11-2
Hatters.
"Stetson was not what
I was looking for in soc-
cer," she said.
Butler played at IMG
Academy in Bradenton,
where she said the play-
ers had the "commit-

she didn't see at Stetson.
"The players were
not all there," she said.

that commitment."

University of Rhode

chose to attend Rhode

defender started three
of the seven games she
played for the 11-8-1
Rams. She started early
in the season, then said
her minutes decreased
when the coach changed
the lineup because the
team wasn't winning as
much as he desired.
"I think it was sup-
posed to be a way better
start," she said. "He just
expected too much out
of us. He kept trying new
things when we couldn't
even accomplish what
he wanted to begin
with."
Also, she realized
the school didn't meet
her academic needs, an
oversight on her part.
"I wasn't really looking
to the academics as I
should have," she said.
Her time at Rhode

"I'm glad I was able
to switch halfway, so I

she said.
She thinks Saint

Butler will sit out this fall

She has two years of

Saint Francis coach

Stetson to find a more

Sarasota's first national rowing championship is this week


By SARA KENNEDY
BRADENTON HERALD

More than 6,000
athletes, spectators and
officials are expected to
descend upon Sarasota's
Nathan Benderson Park
this week as the area hosts
its first national rowing
championship event.
Practices for the
USRowing Masters
National Championships
are slated to begin today,
Wednesday, Aug. 14,
with competitive racing
to continue Thursday
through Sunday.
"We expect over 1,000
athletes and visitors a
day from around the
U.S.; we anticipate
probably 6,000 overall,"
said Bob Whitford,
operational manager at
Benderson Park, 290 N.
Cattleman Road.
"It's the first time we've
hosted the masters, and
the first national rowing
championship we've
hosted here," he added.

rower as well as a former
coach at California
State University at
Sacramento, said athletes
will range in age from
21 into their 90s.
"It is a really big deal,
USRowing masters,
because it is comprised
of former Olympians to
people who just learned
to row," Whitford said.
"Everybody's having fun,
it's a fun event, and that's
what it's all about."
The 21-year-olds can
race against those in
their 90s because the
younger rowers have a
time handicap.
The 600-acre park is
still under construction as
infrastructure for world-
class competitive rowing
is built in an effort to host
the 2017 World Rowing
Championship.
A public-private
partnership including
Manatee and Sarasota
counties, a private
foundation, and the
Benderson Development
Co. has submitted a


formal bid to host the
event in fall 2017.
On Sept. 2, the
International Federation
of Rowing Associations,
representing 136 coun-
tries, is expected to
choose a site for the
world champion-
ship when it meets in
Chungju, South Korea.
The masters champi-
onships will offer a snap-
shot of the possibilities of
such events at the park,
located near Interstate 75
and University Parkway.
As of late Friday, the
masters event had at-
tracted 1,006 entries from
107 clubs across 28 states,
said Casey McKenna-
Monroe, a Sarasota
County Rowing Club
rower and regatta chair.
It will feature about
200 races altogether, or
about 50 per day.
"We've all been looking
forward to this for a
year," McKenna-Monroe
said. "We've been train-
ing for a year."
She will be competing

in four events this week.
"I learned to row as
an adult, I did row one
semester when I studied
abroad," she said. "It's
just something I've al-
ways wanted to do when
I was in high school -
but rowing didn't start in
my high school until a
year after I left."
This will be her first
time competing in the
national championships.
"I have watched my
diet, now I'm down
15 pounds from last
year, I'm doing healthy
eating, watching calories,
watching protein intake,
drinking lots of water,
tons of water," she said.
She works out six days
a week, sometimes at
5:45 a.m., and uses a row-
ing machine and weight-
lifting to build strength.
Tamara Currey, 51, of
Sarasota, plans to work
as a volunteer during this
week's events.

From God's Angry Man to God's Saved Man


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

When he was a boy,
Richard Palmer got a
bowl of soup for lunch
every day ... and a slap in
the face.
He lived a life of
torture and abuse at the
hands of his parents.
He passed it on. By the
age of 9, he was headed
for reform school and
eventually prison ... and
he made it.
But at age 31, he had
an epiphany, thanks to
an old hymn that peri-
odically drew him in.
"On a hill far away,
stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering
and shame."
Eventually, after
many more years of
confronting the law
and his own personal
demons, Palmer ended
up in Venice considered
a reverend. The story of
how he got to this point
is a tale of redemption.
Palmer, now 81, said
he first heard the words
to "The Old Rugged
Cross" coming from a
chapel when he was
in a Minnesota reform
school.
He didn't know what
the words meant, but
they would haunt him
throughout his early life.
He was suffering. He felt
shame. Lacking self-love


and parental guidance,
he didn't know how to
clean up the mess he'd
made of his life. Finding
God was his salvation.

"'For I know the plans
that I have for you,'
declares the Lord, 'plans
for welfare and not for
calamity to give you
a future and a hope."'
(Jeremiah 29:11, NAS)

Fight or flight
When he was growing
up in a rough neighbor-
hood in Minnesota,
street fighting became a
way of life for Palmer. At
night he'd hear screams
of neighbors running for
their life, and later learn
they had been killed. He
learned early to fight for
his own survival.
Unwanted at home, he
and his brother would
roll tires down a hill
to hit oncoming cars,
then enjoying the thrill
of escaping their occu-
pants, who were bent on
retaliation.
Always hungry, he stole
food and money from
stores. He once took a
knife from a church and
thought about hurting
someone. He took china
cups from a house and
gave them to his mother,
trying to win her favor.
His hopes backfired.
With an absent father

story of his life and how he went from being an angry child and
man, to a man of God.

working in faraway
places, often the Aleutian
Islands, and a mother
seeking attention only
from other men, Palmer
ended up in a foster farm
home.
Hurt and angry, he
stole an axe and broke a
dam on the farmer's farm
and was sent to Catholic
Charities. From there,
after further disobedi-
ence, he was sent to a
reformatory his first
taste of prison life.
"The guards didn't
hit you but sent you to
the barn where other
inmates beat boys up,"
he wrote in his book,
"God's Angry Man."
He was released from
reformatory, only to get
into more trouble. As
he grew, he continued
to lash out. Every man
he fought represented
a society he hated, he
wrote; he hated them, his
parents and the law.
There was no hap-
piness in his life. The
violence grew. He didn't
know how to stop; he
didn't know how to live.


"I was not told God
could save me from all
this," he said.
He spent three and a
half tortuous years in a
federal penitentiary in
Colorado after he and
former inmates were
arrested by police in
Nevada. They had
crossed the state line in a
stolen car from California
- an interstate offense
that brought in the FBI.
He said he acted
tough, but inside he was
a scared 16-year-old and
nobody cared.
Upon his release, he
thought he'd marry his
girlfriend, but when
she learned he was an
ex-convict, she broke it
off. Angry and hurt, he
returned to California,
got involved with other
criminal types and stole
a car.
While he was sleeping
on the ground, a bird's
song sent his mind back
to that Minnesota chapel
and the words, "On a hill
far away." He wondered
how his life got to be
such a mess, but he had


nothing to hang onto.
Later, after robberies
and a shootout with
Long Beach police, he
was arrested and went to
state prison. After much
turmoil in and out of
prison, he hitchhiked to
Detroit and worked as a
bus boy. A coworker took
him in, and he met the
man's sister.
"God working," he
said.
In just weeks, he knew
he loved Jo Ann. Shaking,
he told her his past, and
she told him what was
important was that he
could change. They mar-
ried in Detroit, and he
worked at Ford Motor Co.
Early in their marriage,
he lived in fear someone
was waiting to get him.
He had escaped parole in
California and went back
to face it.
His former parole offi-
cer told him he was lucky
- one more incident
and he'd be classified as
a habitual criminal. His
parole was reinstated
and he was released at
age 25.


Epiphany
At age 31, he was still
absorbed in sin, he said.
He took meat from a
small store in California,
which caused some strife
in the family. He began
thinking of that "hill far
away," and he said God
spoke to him.
"It was that still, small
voice within," he said.
"It said, 'Dick, there is
something about me I
want you to know,'" he
wrote in his book.
He heard it again the
next day.
"It had more meaning,
and I wanted to know
God."
He went to a church
and approached a man
exiting with a Bible in
hand. He asked the man
to talk to him about God,
and the man did.
Recently, Palmer said,
a stroke a few years ago
impaired his memory,
and he doesn't recall all
of his transformation.

Sailing across generations, walking a little taller


By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER

Pat Uhl, a volunteer
instructor and former
student for the Englewood
Sailing Association, said it's
about the journey, not the
destination.
For ESA volunteers, it's
a rewarding experience
knowing that graduates will
either stay to share their
own sailing experiences in
a mentor role or expand
their leadership skills they
acquired from the training.
A recent Friday marked
the last day of the ESA sum-
mer sailing camp at Indian
Mound Park, where camp
attendees and their families
celebrated with a cookout
following a moving sail
with 13 boats.


"One of the other things
I like about this group I
enjoy being around people
of all ages," Uhl said. "I
think the kids benefit
from the interaction with
adults other than their
own parents. We certainly
benefit from the interaction
with the kids. We learn as
much as they do. It's just a
really great situation."
The ESA operates with
pico and sailfish sailboats,
which hold up to three. In
the more than 10 years of
operation, they trained over
800 kids in sailing, as young
as 10. Over 50 adults have
participated in the adult
program since it started
three years ago.
Uhl took the course in
March 2012. Uhl's prior
experience was on bigger


sailing boats, which require
more specialized roles.
"The experience was
excellent," she said. "It's a
switch when you're your
own captain and crew.
So, initially, I had a lot of
apprehension but it cleared
up quite quickly."
Uhl credits the hands-on
nature of the instructors.
"Probably the best thing
the group does is they have
a coach in each of the boats
as long as you need it," she
said. "On a big boat, you
usually have a crew. So each
person has an individual
job and you get real good
at that job. When you're
on a small boat, you have
to do everything. You're
the captain and you're the
crew. You're doing all these

At this hospital, Easy Street can require some work


By DEAN LAUX
GUEST COLUMNIST

"There's a place that's
like no other...
Easy Street, better get
there soon."

Those lyrics
from the Broadway
musical "Annie,"
remarkably enough,
apply perfectly to Venice
Regional Medical Center.
How so? Well, it so
happens that Easy Street
can be found on the first
floor of that estimable
hospital. It's the rehab
center that services
about 70 percent of
the hospital's patient
population every day
and is visited by every
orthopedic and stroke
patient before they leave
the hospital.
"Our job," says
Rehabilitation Director
Ronald Kubiak, "is to get


everyone who comes in
here from the hospital
setting to the home
setting."
Easy Street is truly like
no other. It's certainly
gaily colored. Some
would say it's art deco.
"When the patients
see it, they light up," says
Kubiak. 'It's bright, cheery
and innovative for them."
It has a street and
crosswalk, with an up-
ramp and curbstone,
a lamppost, parking
meters, a car, a bike and
a turnstile. An open su-
permarket bin and a cash
register. Some steps, a full
kitchen and a bedroom.
Says former patient
Maureen Raymond, who
had a hip replacement
last October and expe-
rienced Easy Street for
herself, "I've never seen
anything like it. It's like
a little home, where you
learn to take baby steps


again. It eases you into
your daily chores."
But Easy Street can be
tough work for many.
Patients who have under-
gone hip or knee surgery,
suffered leg fractures or
had a debilitating stroke
have to learn many simple
tasks all over again.
"They taught me how
to get in and out of bed,
get into and out of a chair,
how to get into and out of
a car," Raymond said.
That's not easy when
you're manipulating a hip
or a leg that doesn't oper-
ate quite like it used to.
What helps is that
every Easy Street patient
gets one-on-one instruc-
tion, something that
Kubiak points out "you
won't find anywhere
else." He has an experi-
enced staff of about 50
therapists and support
persons, including
three speech/language


pathologists and eight
occupational therapists.
"They're very experi-
enced, and they all give
you one-on-one atten-
tion in every session,"
Kubiak said.
Easy Street reaches out
beyond the hospital to
five outpatient centers in
Venice and Englewood.
"And we arrange the
patients' transition to
the home in conjunction
with our Home Health
Department," Kubiak said.
This involves case
management and home
visits.
"Two different physi-
cal therapists and two
different nurses saw
me every day for a
week," Raymond said.
"The nurses checked
my wound and took
my vital stats, and the
therapists supervised
my exercises. And gave
me instructions. I was

in instructions up to my
eyeballs."
For Raymond, the
overall experience of
surgery and therapy was,
in a word, "wonderful.
I know that's a strange
thing to say about sur-
gery, but it was fantastic,


the care I received. They
gave me my life back."
And Raymond is giving
something back herself.
She has signed up to
become a volunteer
starting in September.
Easy Street, better get
there soon.

Way, a quarter mile east of
State Route 301.


The session will feature
an informal chat about
common issues with
hearing loss. There is no
guest speaker, just an open
session to focus on partici-
pants' individual needs.
This is a great


opportunity to ask ques-
tions, discuss issues about
hearing loss and gain
valuable insight from our
mentors and members.
The meeting is sup-
ported by a Hearing Loop
System that sends every


spoken word directly into
the hearing aid.
Participants will learn
how to use this new
system to get clear, clean,
understandable sound
that is available at most
area theaters, including


the Van Wezel Performing
Arts Hall, The Player's
Theatre and 17 other
playhouses.

Sherry, of Fort Myers, is


the oldest. She is mar-
ried, has five children
and 18 grandchildren.
While growing up, she
and her family traveled
in a bus from 1967 to
1975 evangelizing. They
had sold their home in


California and lived in
the bus.
They traveled the
nation singing and
telling Richard's story of
redemption in churches
and prisons wherever
people would listen.
"Before he knew God,
it wasn't always an easy
life," Sherry said. "He was
not the same man he is
now. He's a very prayerful
man now. After he got
saved, he was a changed
man."
She said he was hurt by
how his parents treated
him and that his dad left
him alone so much for
his work.
"We did get to know
his dad, but his mother
did not want to meet us
kids," she said.

'Les Miserables' is a feast for eyes and ears at Manatee Players


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Manatee Players'
production of "Les
Miserables," by Alain
Boubil and Claude-
Michel Schonberg, may
be the best production
seen in Southwest
Florida in years, certainly
in the 15 or so years
I have been covering
theater.
It is that good.
It helps that director
Rick Kerby was able to
select the 48 or so mem-
bers of the cast from
215 people who tried
out. It also helps that he
had the stunning new
Manatee Performing Arts
Center mainstage theater
space in which to pro-
duce the show. It further
helps that the space may
have the finest acoustics
in the area.
The Manatee Players'
production is the first
U.S. community the-
ater production of this
stunning love story set in
pre-revolutionary France.
We feel the misery of
Jean Valjean's (Kenn C.
Rapczynski) imprison-
ment and the hardship
of others like him. It was
a miserable time. One
man, the Bishop of Digne
(Ken Basque) is kind to
Valjean.
It also was a miser-
able time for Fantine
(Sarah Cassidy), who
prostitutes herself for
the sake of Cosette, her
daughter. When Fantine
dies, Cosette is sent to
live with the Thenardiers
(David W.Walker and
Stephanie Woodman-
Costello), who run a bar
and treat Cosette like
Cinderella while spoil-
ing their own daughter,

Gina Bisceglia and
Laura Schmeichel
portray young Cosette.
Ann Trinci portrays
Cosette as a young
woman. Lily Mae Stewart
and Riley Baye portray
young Eponine. Holly
Rizzo portrays the older
Eponine.
Gavroche (Carson
Rudolph and Maverick
Wolf) is Eponine's
cast-off brother. Rudolph
turned in an astounding
performance Saturday
night for one of any
age, let alone a Goccio
Elementary School
fifth-grader.
The happier part of the
"miserable" story begins
whenValjean, having
turned his life around,


promises to look out for
Cosette who, years later,
would fall in love with
a young man named
Marius (James Hyde).
Also in love with Marius
is Eponine, who has be-
come seriously involved
with the revolution. That
the actors who portray
these three are all fine


singers as well as actors
is another example of
the depth of talent in the
show.
Comic relief erupts
fromWoodman-Costello
and Walker, who even
pop up from beneath
the stage on one occa-
Ssion. She also makes a
delightful pratfall in her
shocking-pink hoop skirt
during "Beggars at the
Feast," when they do a
L variation of their "Master
of the House/Thenardier
Waltz" numbers.
Seeming to always
be around is Valjean's
nemesis, Javert (Bradley
Barbero) who would
send Valjean back to
prison in a heartbeat
if he could find him.
Barbero also has a fine
voice. When they do
come face-to-face, it is
Javert who is released -
and so shocked that
he takes a fatal plunge

Two bid for Warm Mineral Springs contract


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT
COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR

NORTH PORT It
took less than five
minutes to read the
two names on the bids
submitted to the city
Friday for the short-term
operation of the Warm
Mineral Springs Day Spa.
Alla Skipper, who is
overseeing the process
for the city of North Port,
read the titles on the bids
as Warm Mineral Springs
Sarasota Management
LLC and Cambridgeshire
Investment of Port
Charlotte.
No bid was submitted
by the former operator
Cypress Lending, which
vacated the buildings
and spa June 30 after the
city and Sarasota County
failed to reach an agree-
ment on a short-term
operator before the July 1
deadline.
The city and the
county jointly purchased
the Springs in 2010. The
boards also reluctantly
closed the city's only
tourist attraction when
they couldn't decide how
the 81-acre property
could be developed or
preserved in the future.
The city and county
did agree, instead of hag-
gling over a long-term


operator contract,
that they would hire
a company to operate
the Springs, much like
Cypress Lending was do-
ing for 28 months. Then
once the short-term
operator is in place, the
boards will determine
what they want in a
long-term operator -
who likely would be in
charge of making repairs,
upgrades and utilities
improvements to the
property through a
joint meeting.
WMS Sarasota
Management LLC is
represented on the
bid document by local
attorney Kevin Russell
on behalf of Dr. Grigory
Pogrebinsky, 66, who
owns 16 acres border-
ing the Springs Day Spa
and wants to develop a
two-story medical center
and small hotel on his
property. He already has
been before Sarasota
County's Development
Review Committee with
his plans for a medical
facility last month.
Pogrebinsky, who
toured the day spa
recently before submit-
ting the bid at 12:24 p.m.
Thursday, examined the
facility's aging rooms and
moldy bathrooms. He
said spa resorts overseas
are "so much prettier."

SUN PHOTOS BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
eallen@sun-herald.com
Tricia Wisner of Sarasota County Parks and Recreation led
potential bidders on a tour of the Warm Mineral Springs Day
Spa to see how long they thought it would take to reopen the
tourist attraction.


"There is a lot of work
that needs to be done
here to make it look like
a world-class spa. I am
up for it." Pogrebinsky
told the Sun during the
tour.
Although the bid
covenant prevents
Pogrebinsky from
speaking to anyone
about it until Sept. 9
when city commissioners
will review it, he repeat-
edly has said he would
like the mineral-rich lake
to remain untouched.
He would like to attract
medical tourism to the
day spa through his well-
ness center, slated for the
corner of De Leon Drive
and Ortiz Boulevard.


When the Ukrainian-
born physician from
Brooklyn, N.Y who
specializes in pain
management and the
rehabilitation of the spine
and joints using both
standard and holistic
approaches said he
wanted to oversee the
day spa, some spoke
out saying Pogrebinsky
would raise the admis-
sion price or would try to
make it private. However
Pogrebinsky said he's not
bothered by rumors and
welcomes residents to
speak to him about his
plans.
Cambridgeshire
Investments submitted
its bid to the city at


Whoever is the selected short-term operator of the Warm
Minerals Springs Day Spa, the company will have to deal with
issues in the aging building, such as the moldy women's
bathroom.


1:38 p.m. Friday. The
client for which the firm
is working was unnamed.
The business is at 3490
Melissa Court, Port
Charlotte. According
to Dun & Bradstreet
Credibility Corp.,
Cambridgeshire employs
three people.
Skipper said she will
be mailing references
provided by the two
bidders and asking for
feedback on the potential
operators so commis-
sioners can review the
comments as part of
their decision-making.
"I will be checking to
see if all of the paper-
work is complete," she
said. "Parts of it had
to be notarized and


signed. The bidders are
prohibited from talking
to city and county staff
about the proposals until
Sept. 9, when the (city)
commissioners review
them. They (bids) will
be public as part of the
backup material for the
meeting a couple (of)
days earlier."
City commissioners
will review the bids and
then send an answer
to the county, which
will complete the same
process. Once both
sides agree, the bidder
will be selected for the
12-month contract, and
then the bidder will hire
staff and reopen the
Springs to the public.

County seeks input on history preservation


PROVIDED BY
SARASOTA COUNTY

State and county staff
will host a public input
session on Thursday,
Aug. 15 at Twin Lakes
Park in Sarasota on
the proposed Florida's
Statewide Comprehensive
Historic Preservation
Plan. The plan has been
developed by the Florida
Department of State's
Division of Historical
Resources.


Participants will discuss
how the plan can guide
efforts to work together
to preserve Florida's
history and historical,
archaeological and cul-
tural resources. Full color
copies of the plan and an
executive summary will be
available.
"We are pleased to
partner with the State
Division of Historical
Resources to offer the
community the op-
portunity to review


this important plan,"
said Sarasota County
Historical Resources
manager Lorrie
Muldowney. "Sarasota
County is a virtual trea-
sure trove of historical
sites so we are encourag-
ing the community to
share their priorities
about protecting our
irreplaceable cultural
resources."
The Mission of the
Florida Division of
Historical Resources is to


inspire a love of history
through preservation and
education. Departments
in the Division of
Historical Resources
include the Bureau of
Historic Preservation,
which conducts pro-
grams aimed at identify-
ing, evaluating, preserv-
ing and interpreting
the historic and folklife
resources of the state.
The bureau also
manages one of the
largest state supported


grants-in-aid programs
in the country, providing
funds to help preserve
and maintain the state's
historic buildings and
archaeological sites.
The Bureau of
Archaeological Research
is responsible for the
state's archaeology
program. The bureau's
archaeologists carry out
archaeological surveys
and excavations through-
out the state, mostly on
state-owned lands. They


maintain records on
historical resources that
have been recorded, and
assist consultants and
planners in protecting
sites. The state's underwa-
ter archaeology program
includes not only historic
shipwreck sites but also
pre-Columbian sites in
underwater contexts.
The session will take
place from 3 p.m. to
5 p.m. at Twin Lakes
Park, 6700 Clark Road,
Sarasota.


Cardboard boat races coming Aug. 31


By TOM CHANG
STAFF WRITER

Rick Carpenter remem-
bers quite a few standouts
since starting the Pioneer
Days Cardboard Boat
races.
"One year there was a
cardboard Lamborghini
operated by two men from
Port Charlotte," Carpenter
said. "They called it the
Lam-boat-ghini. I've also
seen a cardboard dragster
and a floating tiki bar."
Neither the Lam-boat-
ghini nor the cardboard
dragster won their races,
but Carpenter, or Capt.
Rick as he's also known,
acknowledges creativ-
ity and dedication in the
form of the Captain's
Choice Award.
"The criteria I look for
in the Captain's Choice
are boat design and crew
enthusiasm," he said.
The theme of this year's


Pioneer Days Cardboard
Boat race is "Englewood
goes Hollywood." The race
will be at 9 a.m. on Aug. 31
at Indian Mound Park,
Englewood.
Another reward unique
to the boat races is the
Titanic Award for best
sinking.
"It's always a fun
morning," Carpenter said.
"I look forward to the
sinking boats. In the first
couple of years, there was
a cardboard barge, which
was 4 foot by 8 foot, had
a family of six on it. They
made it halfway through
before it sank. There
was another who built a
single kayak that folded
in half after making it
three-quarters of the way
through."
Realtor Bart Tracy,
who organizes the races,
remembered the 20-foot
pirate boat from the Faull
Inn in Englewood that


carried six people.
"If you want to build a
competitive boat you're
going to spend a lot of
time watching paint dry,"
Tracy said. "It's not as hard
to build a cardboard boat
as people think it is."
There are three differ-
ent boats: box, barge and
kayak.
"Easiest you can make
is the box," Tracy said.
"You use latex, paper
towels and paint to have
the waterproof finish.
The barge is similar
sized to the box. You can
build one, for example,
from 15 liquor boxes and
contact cement, which is
a wonder material. You
can also use duct tape or
cellophane."
Tracy said most of
the winning entries are
kayaks and two-person
operations.
"Two people typi-
cally paddle faster than


one," he said.
The races are divided
into three divisions: Prams
for ages 10 and under,
Sunfish for 11-15, and
World Cup for 16 and
over. To qualify for the
trophy run, boats must
compete in one-on-one
elimination heats. The
trophy run consists of all
the heat winners. Entry
is free for the Prams
division, $20 for Sunfish
and $25 for World Cup.
General admission is free
for the event. First three
places in each division
will win a trophy as well as
the Captain's Choice and
Titanic Awards. A second
chance trophy will also be
awarded for the remain-
ing boats for a total of
16 trophies.
"I'm just looking for-

different jobs at the same
time."
When camp starts,
instructors start students
with a swim test and
capsizing drills.
"(When we capsize), it
helps ease the tension,"
said Craig Keller, vice
president of ESA "I see
at least five capsizes daily
when we're out sailing."
John Richter, general
manager of the ESA, said
the instructors usually have


the kids out on their own
by the fifth day.
There are distinct differ-
ences between teaching
adults and kids.
"Kids are 'see and do'
and they don't ask a lot
of questions," Keller said.
"Adults are more cerebral.
They want to learn all the
technical aspects."
It's something Uhl can
attest to in her experience.
"The problem with
adults is that we tend to
overthink things," she said
"We stop and think before
we do something whereas
the kids just try it and if
it doesn't work, they'll try


something else. I would say
it's easier for kids to learn,
not to say adults aren't
capable."
The most difficult aspect
for Uhl was getting used to
the balance.
"I was on the sunfish,
which is the striped sails
that are out there," Uhl
said. "The sails are relatively
large for the size of the boat
and you always have to be
aware that you're in the
right place at the right time.
When you tack, you have
to make sure you move
your weight to the other
side. So that's the hard part.
On a big boat, there's a lot


of people to tell you what
to do. It becomes easier
over time and it reinforces
everything that you learn
when you teach."
Uhl said the most re-
warding aspect of teaching
is what the students come
away with afterward.
"One thing with the kids
that I've noticed that by
the end of the week of this
camp, they're all walking
a little taller," she said. You
can't teach self-confidence.
That has to be acquired."

Venice Farmer's
Market (VFM), KMI
Retail Merchants,
Venice Fire Department
and Sarasota County
School Transportation
Department are celebrat-
ing the idea of "Eat Fresh,
Homemade, Handmade,
Homegrown and Safety
First."
A Children's Scavenger
Hunt and Teddy Bear
Hunt will run from 9 to
11:30 a.m. today at the
Farmer's Market on West


Tampa Avenue, down-
town Venice. Prizes will
be awarded.
Children can pick up
directions for the hunts
at the Information Booth.
From there, they will scav-
enge (hunt) for various fruit
trees, plants, vegetables,
handmade jewelry and
more in the market.
Then they will go to
the KMI building for
the Great Teddy Bear
Hunt. The Venice Fire
Department and the
school transportation
department will discuss
"safety" at home and on


the school bus.
Mother's Cupboard will
demonstrate a children's
cooking class with pro-
duce from the market.
The Scavenger Hunt
is designed to help
children gain awareness
for healthy items and
to learn how things are
made or grown, as op-
posed to simply bought
at a store. You can "make
it, you can paint it, you
can grow it or you can
catch it."
Organizers ask that all
children be accompanied
by an adult in the "hunt"


for learning.
VFM is located between
Nokomis and Nassau
avenues every Saturday,
from 8 a.m. to noon.
The Venice Farmer's
Market, KMI Retail
Merchants, Venice
Fire Department and
the Sarasota County
School Transportation
Department are happy
to participate in the
early learning process of
children in guiding them
to make good choices.

HEADACHES ARISING FROM THE NECK
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR


Headaches that arise from the neck, known as
cervicogenic headaches," may occur as a
result of trauma to structures of the neck. As
the result of whiplash or some other injury,
nerve endings transmit pain signals up the
pathway from the upper nerves of the neck to
the brain. Along the way, they intermingle
with the nerve fibers of the trigeminal nerve,
which is responsible for the perception of
head pain. Consequently, the patient


experiences the symptoms of headache. In an
effort to stop this pain, the chiropractor may
attempt to realign vertebrae in the neck,
increase range of motion, and relax the
surrounding muscles. Multiple treatments may
be needed to address pain that has persisted
for years.
P.S. Cervicogenic headaches often result from
sports injuries.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

S97432? 1065072*6 952

Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What action do you take?

A Playing at no trump, you are not
going to produce a single trick for
partner. Experience shows that it is
better to play in your long suit, so bid
two spades, or transfer into spades,
depending on your methods. Your
hand should deliver at least a couple
of tricks at a spade contract.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
AQ87 AK5 0934AKQ76

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

A An awkward hand. You bid one in
a suit because your hand was a trifle
too strong for one no trump, but now
you are faced with a rebid problem. A
jump to three clubs should promise a
six-card or longer suit, while a jump
raise to three hearts promises
fourcard support. However, the latter
is the lesser evil jump to three
hearts.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
SKJ8( AQJO K734 J854

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 14 ?
What do you bid now?

A The secret of good bidding is not
to invite partner to do what you
should do yourself! A jump to two no
trump would not be forcing and
could be passed! With an opening bid
facing values for an opener, jump to
three no trump.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
6 AK 6 5 3 AQ7 K 8 6 QJ


Partner opens the bidding with a
diamond. What do you respond?

A Although you hold almost half the
deck, this is not the hand with which
to jump shift. You cannot judge the
level, which could be anywhere from
game to grand slam, or the strain,
spades diamonds or no trump are
feasible, at this point. To jump only
robs you of room you might need
later. Start by responding one spade.
Partner's rebid might clear up some
of the possibilities.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

SKQ92 Q OAKQJ83 K7


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 16
44 Pass 5

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass
Pass


A Partner has suggested a slam if
you have club control. You do, but it
is the king, not the ace, and partner
might not have the queen, in which
case a club lead might defeat a spade
slam. But you don't have to worry
about that in six diamonds, which is
what you should bid.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

SJ9763 4 0AK J 9544 5


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
Pass Pass 16

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A No spade raise describes your
hand adequately there could be a
grand slam opposite a near minimum
opening bid! The only sensible
approach is to jump shift to three
diamonds. Not only is that an
absolute force but, by a passed hand,
it promises spade support.

Sarah Goodwin
(Katherine Michelle

ists who cover the tough
stories, risking their lives to
cover wars, insurrections
and people living in dire

Sherry said she enjoyed

"I would not change

she said. "I'm grateful for
it. We watched people

fied in Christ. We put out
a newsletter quarterly, and
people would write to us
and say what (blessings)
happened after we were
there. Some did have a

wasn't our ministry. We
were spiritual healers."

dealing with such serious
subjects as those covered
by Sarah and James.
Mandy seems to say all
the wrong things to Sarah
and James and is appalled
by the fact that Sarah pho-
tographs atrocities instead
of doing something to help
victims of the atrocities.
"We are supposed to
capture the truth, not fix
it," Sarah said, showing
her impatience with this
"little girl" with Richard,
her much older editor.
Richard, on the other
hand, is quite happy with
his "hot girlfriend."
"I'm not Richard's

Mandy said. "I love

hand and talked to him.
He gave the man his name
and phone number and
said where we lived. As I
was getting ready for bed,
there was still some ...
strife. Things did not feel
right, and I wanted to feel
normal.
"I heard a knock on the
door and a couple of men
came in. We girls peeked
out and they were talking
to our parents.
"It was a pivotal time
for me. I awoke the next
morning and my dad was
still sitting in the chair.
(I told my husband this,
but never anyone else.)
He looked like a different
man. There was a change
in his eyes they were
now soft, not hard like
they had been. He had a
totally different demeanor.
I'll never forget that
moment."
After years of struggle
and strife, Richard Palmer
had found the answer
he was looking for. He
found it in God; he was
redeemed.
Palmer and his second
wife, Janie, of six years
(Jo Ann died several
years ago and Janie was
a widow) attend Christ
United Methodist Church
in Venice. The Rev. Larry
Potts, assistant pastor,
said Palmer has been a
member for 20 years, 10
during Potts' ministry.
He explained that
Palmer deserved the title
of "reverend" because
after spending so many
years as an evangelist,
he is what is known as a
"proven man of God."
Potts quoted scripture:
"Jesus said: 'Behold, I
make all things new' (Rev.
21:5 KJV). The Rev. Palmer
is proof of that."

Potts had Palmer's book
"God's Angry
Man" reprinted.

than my dad."
As James watches and
listens, his occasional
remarks seem to indicate
that he is ready to cover
less dangerous missions
and even to settle down
and be married to Sarah
after all these years, even
overlooking her relation-
ship with the late Tariq.
"You didn't have to tell
me," James said to Sarah.
"You always said'We' and
then it was 'I.' Overnight
our status changed ... you
gave yourself away with 'I.'"
As the tale continues to
unfold, Sarah and James'
relationship unravels
while Mandy seems to
grow wiser as she becomes
pregnant with Richard's
child and decides to be
a stay-at-home mother
rather than return to work.

"We knew he had an
incredible testimony,
with all that he had been
through," Potts said.
"He published his book
42 years ago and it was
out of print. There were
no more copies of it, to
our knowledge. Then a
member was moving
back to New York and
found a copy of it, and we
believe that is the last one
available. I took on the
project and decided the
church would republish
the book. The expenses
were carried by members
of the church."
A statement in the book
tells people to contact
the church for spiritual
guidance.
"We reprinted the
book because it's such a
dramatic story of what we
preach here," Potts said.
"When one is born again,
they dramatically change.
There couldn't be more of
a dramatic change than
being a horrible criminal
- shooting guns at police
officers and being
saved. And one of the
biggest blessings is that he


In act two, the playwright
pokes a bit of fun at live
theater even as his char-
acters continue to evolve.
At one point, it seems as
though Sarah has second
thoughts about her career.
"I live off the suffering of
others," she said.
"We don't have to do
this anymore," James
replies. "I don't need to
watch children die. I want
to watch children grow."
Time stands still at
intervals during the play.
Sometimes it is like a
poetic pause that allows
viewers to mull things over
a bit. Sometimes it is be-
cause it seems as though
the story has been told,
the lights go out and then
somehow come up again
and there is an addendum.
There is closure whether


or not it is desired by the
audience.

missed hitting one."
Potts offered another
scripture: "Paul wrote in
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV):
'Therefore, if any man
be in Christ, he is a new
creature; the old things are
passed away; behold, all
things are become new.'"
Palmer is involved with
United Methodist Men's
group, and he hands out
Christian tracts to people
in the name of Jesus
Christ.


"His reprinted book has
revitalized his efforts, and
they are available for free
to all in the church and
in the community," Potts
said. "He wants people to
know Christ through his
testimony. Short of that,
it's just an activity. This is a
Bible-teaching church.
"It is a fallen world,
based in sin. We teach to
seek the truth through
Jesus Christ."

I remember Toddy

it was basically stationery.
In 1983, I was a student

Remembering Tom
Dr. Tom Collins
recently passed. He was
a nice man and a nice
friend. Tom and I loved
the Cleveland Indians. We
enjoyed happy talk when
they were winning and
boo-hooing when they
were on a losing streak.
The last time I saw Tom
was a few months ago at
the Venice Art Center. He
told me he just finished
reading "The Curse of
Rocky Colavito," about a


former player and prom-
ised to drop the book off at
my house.
I haven't read the book
yet but I will, and each
time I turn the page I will
remember my nice friend
Tom Collins. Special love to
Judy Collins and family.

The special people of
this week are the Venice
Downtowners. This terrific
group of volunteers walks
the streets during season,
helping folks find their
way around town. They
tell about special events
and often help bewildered


shoppers choose a gift.
In the off season, they
continue to work in the
MainStreet office and
were on hand wrap-
ping packages during
the recent Christmas
in July. They enjoy their
work and are goodwill
ambassadors. The Venice
MainStreet Downtowners
are a group of volunteers
who make Venice a great
place to live.

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Venice realtor Gae Stewart is not only in
the business of selling her hometown, she
might possibly be one of its biggest fans.
Stewart and her husband Ron Dudley are
real estate agents with the Re/Max Alliance
Group on Venice Avenue. They also have an
office in the KMI building on Miami Avenue,
where they own and rent out their own
condominiums.
"I've been in Venice since 1970, so I've seen
it grow,"Stewart said. "Venice is home for us,
and we love downtown. It's got some really
unique areas."
Of course, since she was on the board
for Venice MainStreet for a few years, an
organization that prides itself on preserving,
protecting and promoting historic downtown
Venice, Stewart may be a little biased.
"One of the things we worked on when I
was on the board was making Venice a desti-
nation"she said."We wanted people to plan
to come here for what we have and what we
have to offer now and in the future."
And Stewart said that what Venice has
to offer is a lot, especially when it comes to
wonderful restaurants. When asked what her
favorite eatery was, Stewart had a hard time
deciding. She said that there were many that
she and her husband really enjoyed, but she
eventually landed on one that she has associ-
ated with happy times in her life for more
than two decades.
"Our friends started Venice Wine & Coffee
about 20 years agoshe said. "They've always
had their wine shop and did wine tasting.
They would also offer food with different
types of wine and would do wine trips to
Italy."

Gae Stewart and Ron Dudley
Real estate agents with the Re.Max Alliance Group on Venice Avenue.


Current Venice Wine & Coffee general
manager Michael Hobson says those wine
tasting are still very popularwith locals and
snowbirds alike.
"When we do wine tasting, we do special
foods for each wine we serve" he said. "We
have them every other week, and the food is
all designed to match the wines."
The wines introduced at the tasting are
usually ones that are new to the area, and
a wine expert will talk to the group about
the particulars of each wine. At the Aug. 31
Augustan Wine Tasting, for example, some of
the offerings will be: a 2012 Honig Sauvignon
Blanc paired with a crab baguette and a 2009
Nelms Road Merlot with cheese filled tortel-
lini with vodka sauce.
Hobson also said that the Venice Wine &
Coffee lunches that Stewart is so fond of are
very popular.
"Every week we post a menu on the front


door with the lunches they're always
different" he said."We have a lot of expertise
here (in the kitchen). When we do something,

Punta Gorda, Port Charlofe, North Port, Englewood & Venice
Sunnybreeze Golf Course: Affordable, natural, relaxed
Bill Baker and his wife Kathy began managing
Sunnybreeze Golf Course in Arcadia in 1974 when it was just
a nine-hole course. In three years' time they bought the
course and embarked on a plan for change and growth at
Sunnybreeze.
Andy Anderson and Bill Baker designed and built what
would become the 18-hole championship course. Nestled
alongside lush trees adjacent to the Peace River, the course is
6149 yards with a par 71. Golfers can choose from three tee
boxes and can generally complete the course in three to three
and a half hours. The natural setting in the country offers
golfers privacy and beautiful vistas.
In 2000, Baker went on to design and build a nine-hole par 3 course called The Breeze. At 980 yards, the
links style course can be completed in 45 minutes. iWe went from 9 to 18 to 27 to 36 holes,i Baker said.
Sunnybreeze's course is not part of a real estate development. Golfers enjoy a backdrop of 200-year-old oak
trees, natural Florida marsh and a variety of wildlife including hawks, eagles, alligators, panthers, deer, fox,
and turtles. Both courses challenge golfers with an array of open, tree-lined, and water holes. Practice
facilities include driving range and two putting greens.
Baker also owns and partly designed a course called Wicker Hills in Hale, Michigan.
iI still actively manage Sunnybreeze. My wife is retired and my sister, Cathy, manages the Michigan course,i
Baker said.
The original nine-hole course the Bakers bought in 1974 was closed after Hurricane Charley hit in 2004.
Although Sunnybreeze was open for business two weeks after the natural disaster, the golf course lost five
buildings including the 15,000 square foot clubhouse the Bakers had designed together.
Continuing on his path of change and growth for Sunnybreeze, Baker is currently working on a plan to
develop a motorcoach resort on the land originally used for the first nine-hole course. Partnering with Barry
Poole, the developer of Deer Creek Motorcoach Resort, Baker hopes to build a Class A Motorcoach Resort at
the golf course.
Right now golfers can take advantage of a $250 annual membership special with a $20 cart fee in the fall
and a $16 cart fee over the summer. Sunnybreeze Golf Course is located at 8135 SW Sunnybreeze Drive in
Arcadia. For more information or tee times, call 888-663-2420. Bill and Kathv Baker

DINING OUT GO





Osprey Tiki Bar and Grille


By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Osprey Tiki Bar and Grille located in
the stylish Bentley's Boutique Hotel
takes guests to a poolside oasis to enjoy
grilled and fresh foods made to order in
the tropical atmosphere. Teak decking
and cozy cabanas capped with metal
roofing expand out from the bar and
surround the pool. Punctuated with
orange patio umbrellas, chairs and
comfy cushions, guests have several
choices to sit and listen to live music
while enjoying a drink."lt's Miami
scenery with a Key West laid-back
feeling" said Osprey Tiki Bar and Grille
bartender Dan Arden.
Owners Rod and Kim Thomas have
created the allure of the restaurant and
hotel. Gone are the days of the porpoise
show and western ghost town at the pre-
Disney World attraction Floridaland that
brought the original hotel to Osprey in
the'60s. Top to bottom renovations have
enclosed all outside access rooms turning


late boutique hotel. The endearing
couple makes the rounds welcoming
restaurant guests as though it were a
backyard family barbecue.
Looking at it now, it is hard to picture
the former property with weeds poking
through cracks of the concrete court-
yard. The size of the newly remodeled
sparkling pool grew once the four layers
of tile from previous renovations were
chipped off the pool walls. Originally
opening as a Holiday Inn, the property
has also operated as a Ramada Inn and
the Osprey Inn.
Wanting to fully appreciate guests'
needs as well as their staff, the couple
has worked to understand every aspect
of the business. They have waited tables
and even attended a bartending school
to get a feel for working the Tiki Bar.
"We've worked so hard on the service
and the food and making it welcome to
guests and locals" Kim said. Their atten-
tion to detail and service has paid off
attracting larger parties and regulars to
the restaurant. The increased popularity
has given the couple plans to expand the


outdoor kitchen at the Osprey Tiki Bar
and Grille.
Live music entertains guests outside
from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Friday and
Saturday nights and from 2 p.m. to
5 p.m. on Sundays. "It has gotten so
popular with the locals" Kim said. "Tons
of families are in on Sundays."
Arden said the most popular drinks
at the Tiki Bar are the Malibu buckets
made with every flavor that Malibu has
to offer. The drink consists of seven shots
of Malibu topped off with pineapple and
cranberry juice and garnished with cher-
ries and an orange slice.
Rod purchased the property four
years ago when it was the Osprey Inn.
Living in Guildford, a town southwest
of London, Rod owned an engineering
company that at one time serviced
Windsor Castle. As the company
expanded, Rod and his partners decided
to sell leaving him open to new opportu-
nities. Following a lead on the property,
Rod met Kim at the hotel's restaurant.


ated tanning salons for over 29 years.
Rod's engineering company, Orange
EBS Limited, lent a hand in the deco-
rating decision of the orange-colored
accents at Osprey Tiki Bar and Grille. His
background is also evident in the names
and themes of the hotel. Morgan's,
the premier restaurant of the hotel, is
named after the Morgan Motor Company
south of Worcestershire and the Under-
ground Barand Lounge is coined for the
London Underground.
Rod Thomas said of his guests,"I just
want them to have fun and have a great
service."Invested in the community, Rod
was also instrumental in the develop-
ment of the Osprey Nokomis Florida
Chamber of Commerce last year. Serving
as president of the chamber, he writes
a column for the Venice Gondolier Sun
and has begun hosting a radio broadcast
with Kim on Radio Ear Network.
Bentley's Boutique Hotel is located at
1600 South Tamiami Trail in Osprey. The
Osprey Tiki Bar and Grille is open from
noon to 10 p.m. seven days a week. For
information, call 941-966-2121.

Listen to animal keeper Scott Johnson
talk about any of the alligators in the
Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens, and
you'd swear he's talking about a family
member. The Texas native rattles off each
of the more than a dozen alligators'names,
gives details of their physical attributes,
and tells you what each is like.
There's Big Red -a 12-foot, 3-inch
long, 700-pound beast with crimson eyes
who's been at the zoo since the'70s. Then
there's Bubba who at 750 pounds -
can practically stand on his hind legs at
feeding time waiting to be tossed a chunk
of chicken.
"They're so smart,'Johnson said recently
after a live feeding. "They know their
names and come when they're called."
Like the majority of staff and volunteers
at the zoo, Johnson is passionate about
what he does.
Johnson loves animals. He loves being
around them. He loves caring for them
and, above all, he loves to teach visitors
about what makes each animal at the zoo
so interesting and unique.
And that's really what the Naples Zoo is
all about: education, conservation and a
whole lot of family fun. In fact, since its
founding in 1919, the zoo's mission has
been to "inspire conservation through
innovative, intimate and memorable
experiences'"The zoo organizes nearly a
dozen events daily, including the popular
"Meet the Keeper"series where guests
can learn about alligators, giraffes,
cheetahs, Malayan tigers, African honey
badgers and a variety of other exotic
animals. The thought is: If people
understand more about animals and
their natural habitats, they would be
more inclined to respect them and their
environments.
Located on 44 acres in the heart of
Naples, the zoo, which is an accredited

Shop antiques in Arcadia this month -


business doors closing, shattering prices


, Algie Didlaukies, will be closing the doors to Glass, Antique or Not in Arcadia on Sept. 15.


E/INI/C/' August 14-20, 2013


By JOE GALLIMORE
GENERAL MANAGER THE ARCADIAN

A dynamic couple, Algie and Wolf
Didlaukies, will be closing the doors to
Glass, Antique or Not in Arcadia and want
past customers and visitors to know that
September 15, will be the last day to shop.
Algie and Wolf have been in business
for more than 25 years, first in San Juan,
Puerto Rico, then Lexington, Ky., and
Dania, Fla., before opening at 219 West
Oak Street in Arcadia, in October 2003.
In fact, their daughter, Toni Badovinac,
moved from Colorado to open the business
while they were in transition.
They experienced the wrath of Hurri-


cane Charley in 2004; in fact, it did
extensive damage to the building's roof,
and after repairs and regrouping, they
reopened in 2005. The business has
opened its doors seven days a week,
welcoming customers from all around
the world and from valued local support.
Customers have shopped inside the store
as well as conducted business online,
purchasing everything from treasured
knickknacks to exquisite pieces of ornate
crystal and china.
Algie imparts her professionalism and
knowledge of glass and art when asked,
and she also makes a point to greet every
customer who enters the shop. In addi-
tion, Wolf's knowledge and woodworking


skills, assure the quality of furniture
restorations is topnotch.
Over the years, Algie and Wolf
Didlaukies have helped to establish
recognition for Arcadia's antique district
as the mecca of antique shopping in
Florida. They have regular customers who
frequent the shop both locally and from
afar. Chuck Slaght, international swim-
ming coach and instructor, makes his way
from Naples once a month seeking and
purchasing items of beauty that he says
can always be found inside the shop.
Jane O'Connor, a consultant from Venice
says, "My husband Tim and I love shopping
for antiques in Arcadia and make the trip
every other week, always making our first


stop at Glass, Antique or Not" She added,
"It's our favorite shop for many reasons.
We feel they offer the highest quality,
appropriately priced and truly collectible
items." She added,"Combine that with
their friendly personality and the will-
ingness to answer our questions about
antiques make this shop the real gem of
the downtown antique district, unsur-
passed by any other."
Make your plans to shop there before
Sept.15, and experience what many
others rave about. Prices are reduced from
50 to 70 percent off. They're open from
11 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. Monday Saturday
and from 11 a.m. 4 p.m. on Sunday. Call
863-494-4524 for more information.

holiday season. It opens Nov. 12 in the Mertz
Theatre and closes Dec. 29. The change
gives winter visitors the opportunity to see
the big fall opener which, in the past, was
closed and put away before many arrived.
The other big change for the coming
season is the earlier opening of the late
spring/summer musical offering of recent
years. Next year, the regional premier of the
new comic book-inspired musical,"Hero"
will open April 29 and play through June 1
in the Mertz. "Hero" had its world premier
at the Marriott Theatre in Chicago last year.
The story concerns comic book artist Hero
Batowaki who works in his family's comic
book shop in Milwaukee and still lives at
home.
The company's five-year American
Character Project continues into its second
year by celebrating family. The Rep season
includes Frank Galati's adaptation of John
Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath,"sched-
uled for March 12-April 19. The official Rep
season opens with another Galati-directed
show"Philadelphia, Here I Come!" by Brian
Friel.
The Rep season also includes "Other Desert


Cities" by Jon Robin Baitz (Jan. 15-Feb.27);
"Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" by
Christopher Durang (Jan. 22-April 13). and
Amy Herzog's"4,000 Miles"in the Historic
Asolo Theatre (April 2-27).
"I think with this season, people will
really get a sense now of what we mean
when we say these plays are speaking to
each other,"said Michael Donald Edwards,
producing artistic director for Asolo Rep.
"Taken as a whole, this season is another
step forward for this theater's own bold
artistic journey."
Edwards will direct"Grapes of Wrath."
A summer musical scheduled to run
June 10-29 will be announced at a later
date.
Also part of the season will be the fifth
season of the Unplugged New Play Festival
and the Asolo Rep/FSU Conservatory for
Actor Training New Stages Tour with a
production of Shakespeare's romantic
tragedy,"Romeo and Juliet"in the fall of
2013. "Unplugged" dates will be announced
later.

Asolo Conservatory for Actor
Training 2013-14 season
"The School for Lies" by David Ives opens
the 2013-14 season of the Asolo Conser-

Conservatory shows feature second-year
students from the rigorous FSU program
that leads to a master's degree.
"Loot" by Joe Orton, (Jan. 2-19), the
second show, is described in a Conservatory
release as"a wild, black farce by one of the
20th century's most anarchic playwrights.
Hal and Dennis try to hide the loot from
a bank robbery while juggling a grieving
widower, a mother's corpse, a predatory
nurse, and a sinister police inspector in this
brilliant English comedy."
Paula Vogel's"How I Learned to Drive" is
scheduled for Feb. 19-March 9. It is a Pulitzer
Prize winner about L'il Bit and her"dark and
dangerous relationship with her Uncle Peck."
Completing the Conservatory season is
"Antigone" by Jean Anouilh, April 9-27. The
release describes the play as "a retelling of
the famous Greek tragedy about the colli-
sion between the state and personal respon-
sibility in a modern version that reveals just
how dangerous it is for the individual to
take a stand in the 20th century."
Conservatory shows take place in the
Jane B. Cook Theatre at the FSU Center.
Subscriptions are available now. Single
tickets go on sale in September. For infor-
mation call the box office at 941-351-8000

Since the closing of Sarasota's Pelican
Man Bird Sanctuary some years ago, injured
wildlife especially birds have had an
even tougher time.
Fortunately the Peace River Wildlife
Center at Ponce de Leon Park in Punta Gorda
remains to pick up some of the slack -
especially in South Sarasota and Charlotte
counties.
Dating to 1978, the center, according
to its own records, has treated more than
100,000 birds and small animals. It moved
to its present location in 1987. On any
given day its many cages are usually at
capacity. On my most recent visit, there also
were several visiting birds, perched atop
some of its cages. A great blue heron was
perched atop the large cage at the entrance,
seeming to act as a sentry or greeter to visi-
tors. Some of its avian friends were in the
cage on which it perched.
In addition to treating some 2,000 crea-
tures annually, the center has nearly 200
permanent residents, including birds such
as eagles, hawks, owls, ospreys, sandhill
cranes, pelicans, herons and even a vulture
or two. The residents are sort of a Who's Who
of Florida's resident birds.
Permanent residents live in spacious
caged areas that are designed to replicate
as closely as possible, the native habitats
of the bird or animal. That concept makes
the center an ideal road trip destination,
especially for bird and animal fans. Though
small and compact, the habitat-inspired
caged areas prove educational for visitors
even as they are homey for their resident
birds and animals.


Creatures become permanent residents
when they cannot be released back into
the wild after treatment. While they may
eat like birds, their feeding costs the center
some $75,000 annually, according to the
center's website. Maintaining the perma-
nent habitats is another cost borne by the
center which gets its support from grants,
donations, sales of items in its gift shop and
the proceeds of its recycling efforts.
As a member of such wildlife groups as
the International and Florida Wildlife Reha-
bilitation Councils, the center is licensed and
overseen by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission.
Currently, the center admits about
2,000 clients annually, a number that has
increased every year since the center's
founding. Ifa bird or small animal cannot
be returned to its native habitat after
treatment and recovery but is otherwise
healthy, it becomes a permanent resident
of the center or another federally and state
approved facility. All of the permanent
residents are available for viewing by the
public in attractive, spacious aviaries and
habitats, suggestive of their native envi-
ronments. Among the birds available for
viewing are eagles, hawks, owls, ospreys,
sandhill cranes, pelicans, herons, gulls,
terns, cormorants, songbirds, crows and
vultures. The costs involved to display them
for public viewing includes nearly $75,000
per year just to feed the almost 200 perma-
nent residents. Volunteers keep the costs
to a minimum by performing most of the
day-to-day work at the center.

Jimmy Jay's



'wonderful world'


LIVE MUSICGO


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Southwest Florida diners who prefer
leisurely meals, soft lights and nostalgic
piano accompaniment love Jimmy Jay. Over
the years he has performed at many of the
area's most popular fine dining establish-
ments including: Marina Jacks in Sarasota,
The Far Horizons in Longboat Key, and the
Gulf View Grill in Englewood."l tried retire-
ment, but was ever so bored," he explained.
"I began my career in show business when
I was 5, and I can't stop now." On Friday
and Saturday evenings Jimmy Jay dons
his tuxedo and heads for Englewood's La
Stanza Ristorante where he plays and sings
romantic favorites such as"lt's a Wonderful
World,""That's Life"and "Our Day will
Come." Most patrons know him by name,
and Jimmy Jay is quick to exchange greet-
ings and accept requests throughout the
evening.
Although Jimmy Jay is best known as
a piano player, he is also a man of many
unique talents and accomplishments.
Throughout his career he has performed
as an accordionist, organist, comedian,
and WENG variety show radio host. In his
native Cleveland, Ohio, Jimmy Jay began
by impersonating celebrities like Jimmy
Durante and Louie Armstrong at music
variety shows. In one country music show
he wore bib overalls (provided by his aunt
in Kansas) and a straw hat, and played a
miniature accordion. Once he was featured
in an all-girl comedy act known as the
"Corny Critters."A highlight of these early


days was his being chosen as the opening
act for singer/guitarist Freddy Fender.
Show business has been his life's work, and
Jimmy Jay is proud of the fact that he was
able to make a living and raise his children
while working as a professional performer
in Southwest Florida.
Jimmy Jay has faced and overcome many
of life's most serious challenges, but it's
obvious that he's still going strong, and his
sense of humor is still very much intact.
His latest challenge involves learning how
to become a ventriloquist. He's the recent
recipient of three "dummies" created
especially for him in California. Their names
are Lou, JD and Willard. Lou strikingly
resembles Louie Armstrong and JD seems
a lot like Jimmy Durante. You'll have to ask
Jimmy Jay about Willard as he resembles
a colorful, silly bird. "I still need to work
at ventriloquism. Boy, this is the hardest
thing I've ever done,'Jimmy Jay remarked.
"Meanwhile, I'm just having fun:.
In his "spare time"Jimmy Jay performs
at private parties and clubs, and every
Tuesday as Jimmy Jay and Friends from
1-3 p.m. at the Venice Senior Friendship
Center located at 2350 Scenic Drive. Seniors
love dancing or tapping their feet to the
beat. The cost is $2 for Friendship Center
members and just $4 for nonmembers. To
book Jimmy Jay for a party or event, you
can contact him at wb8dbx@yahoo.com.
You can also see him perform in person at
the La Stanza Ristorante located at 285 W.
Dearborn Street in Englewood every Friday
and Saturday evenings from 6-9 p.m. Call
them at 941-475-1355.


Top of Billboard Chart on August 14

'60s

1965 "I Got You Babe" by Sonny & Cher

Timeless Albums

"Blonde on Blonde" by Bob Dylan, 1966.
Rock's first studio double LP. Backed by excellent musicians Al Kooperon keyboards
and Robbie Robertson on guitar, as well as Nashville session musicians, this is Dylan's
poetic songwriting at its finest. The album includes"Rainy Day Women #12 and #35,""Sad
Eyed Lady of the Lowlands,""Just Like a Woman"and"I Want You:'
"Moondance" by Van Morrison, 1970.
With his soulful, bluesy voice and a gospel-based sound, Morrison's album is considered
one of the most romantic ever recorded. It includes the jazzy title cut as well as "Crazy
Love,"the pop single "Come Running,""And It Stoned Me,""Caravan,"and the haunting
"Into the Mystic:'
"Graceland" by Paul Simon, 1986.
This groundbreaking album features a majority of songs based on mbaqanga, a style
of South African pop music. Besides Simon's intelligent songwriting, artists as diverse as
Ladysmith Black Mambozo, Los Lobos, Linda Ronstadt and the Everly Brothers contribute
to"Graceland's"success. The top single was "You Can Call Me Al."



Last week, this musical trivia question was asked: Who is the singer/songwriter that
had these'80s number one songs: "Truly,""Hello,""AII Night Long (All Night)"and"Endless
Love"(a duet with Diana Ross)?
Answer: Lionel Richie. The first reader to answer correctly was
Kathy Allen of Port Charlotte.
This Week's Question: In the'60s decade, Billboard rated The Beatles #1 and Elvis
Presley #2 based on their hit singles. Which vocal group was ranked #3?

Ifyou think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than
noon this Friday, and we'll publish your name as the winner with the correct answerin next
week's issue of Let's Go! Please include your name and city.

Fun By The
Numbers

Like puzzles?
Then you'll love
sudoku. This
mind-bending
puzzle will have
you hooked from
the moment you
square off, so
sharpen your
pencil and put
your sudoku
savvy to the test!


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!
