A pilot from Osprey was
able to walk away with only
minor injuries Monday
morning after making an

He was manning his 37-foot

Veterans Day was commemorated Monday at Patriots Park through a
series of speeches, ceremonies and patriotic presentations.

Hundreds gather

SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN
One brave soul stood in
front of a crowd and ex-
plained in horrifying detail
exactly what it felt like to be
shot at by the enemy when
he was just 19 years old. He
didn't know at the time if
that day would be his last.
But Loren Pittman, life
member and post com-
mander and chaplain of
American Legion Post 159
in Venice, would live to see

Force theme song.

"That was 70 years ago
and I recall it just like it was
yesterday but I am still
here," Pittman said. "I am
grateful for my life, and I
feel very honored to be here
today."
On Monday at Patriots
Park in Venice, hundreds
gathered to pay their
respects to the men and
women who have served
- sometimes making the
ultimate sacrifice to
protect the freedom of the
citizens of America.
Observed annually on
Nov. 11, Veterans Day coin-
cides with a time when the
major hostilities of World
War I were formally ended
on the 11th hour of the 11th
day of the 11th month in
1918.
The National Anthem
blared loudly as the
SuncoastWind Ensemble
played, and American
Legion Post 159
Commander John Farrow
welcomed the crowd.
"This is not a day to be
sad, this is a day to stand tall
and be proud of ourselves,"
Farrow said.

Transgender inmates


pose challenge


for county jail


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
When Sarasota County
Sheriff Tom Knight an-
nounced last week his intent
to close down the South
County jail, located in the
Venice Police Department
building, one of the reasons
was the growing number
of detainees unable to be
processed in Venice.
Among those are transgen-
dered people.
Major Jim Lilly, division
commander, Courts and
Corrections, with the Sheriff's
Office, who assisted Knight in
making the announcement,
told city council members
arrests involving transsexual
or transgendered individuals
are on the increase.
Whether they're arrested
in Venice, North Port, or
Sarasota, if there's a question
about gender, those detained
are driven straight to the
main jail at the Sheriff's

The city of Venice held

Built in the 1980s, it was

Instead of breaking

State Attorney not keen on pursuing case against code official


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
A State Attorney
would rather not
prosecute a case against
a city of Venice code en-
forcement officer who
took what he deemed to
be an illegal sign out of
another man's vehicle.
The city docked John
Patek, 63, three days'
pay for reaching into
the vehicle owned by
barber Larry Hakes, of
Palm Barber Shop in the
Venice Mall.
The barber came
out screaming, said
officials, demanding
his sign back. The city
provided another sign
later, but Hakes never
put the sign back up
again.
City officials later
said Hakes never had
authority to run his
business out of that
location because the

at the South County jail.
The Sheriff's Office
in Sarasota has devel-
oped a tried and true
process for making such
determinations, hiring
a three-person cadre
of deputies who work
six days a week in the
classification section.
Detainees come in
all types from cross
dressers to those in dif-
ferent stages of surgical
sex change processes,
Lilly said.
"We do a private in-
terview with the deputy
supervisor to determine
how they identify
themselves," Lilly said.
"Do they have external
genitalia? If they claim
to be a male, we have a
male corrections officer
pat them down to make


business space was
divided improperly and
an occupational license
was never issued.
The sign, placed in
the open hatchback of
a vehicle, was illegal,
Patek said. A new city
code has since ad-
dressed the loophole.
On Tuesday, Patek
and his attorney Robert
Harrison were in court
ready to pick a jury for
trial.
But the charge,
originally filed as a
felony burglary, was
reduced to a second
degree misdemeanor
and refiled, meaning no
jail time, and thus no
right to a jury trial.
Instead, the case
was rescheduled for
a non-jury trial on
Dec. 20.
State Attorney Bill
Greiner told a 12th
Circuit Judge he wanted
the extra time to hold

sure they are what they
claim to be. Ultimately,
medical staff determine
which gender they are.
If detainees are female,
a female deputy does
the pat-down."
Deputies admit
it's not a burgeoning
problem.
Few statistics are
available on how many
are housed in the
county jail.
"There's not that
many," Lilly said. "We
have three that come
in pretty consistently.
They've been in there
before. But on any given
day, we may get some-
one transported from
another jail.
"It becomes a tough
one. Obviously we try
not to discriminate
based on their gender.
"We don't want to
take someone with
external genitalia and
breasts and put them in


a pretrial meeting of
minds to "settle this
in an appropriate
manner."
That's good news for
Patek.
"Bottom line: What
(Mr.) Patek did was not
a crime," Harrison said.
"That's why they want
to get out of it. This is
like a police officer who
sees a bag of marijuana
in a car in plain view.
Has a police officer
committed trespass if
they grab the marijua-
na? No."
"This poor guy was
just doing his job.
There's no crime here.
There isn't a case."
Harrison said he
believes the State
Attorney was, in es-
sence, characterizing
the incident as a
technical violation, but
not worth pursuing.
"This should not be
in the courthouse,"

a jail with 40 men," Lilly
said.
Some studies say
13 percent of inmates
will be sexually abused.
Others put that at one
in four.
Those who identify
themselves as transgen-
der or transsexual are
at greater risk of rape
and abuse in the prison
system. Hence, the op-
tion of protective single
occupancy housing.
Nine out of 10 opt for
it, Lilly said.
The classification
section also takes into
consideration wheth-
er the transgender
detainee is likely to
victimize someone else.
Because transgendered
people are more likely
to have contact with
law enforcement, their
prison records play a
role, too, in where they
are housed in prison.
The federal Prison


Harrison said. "It's not
something you see very
often. I (believe) the
state was absolutely
mortified to take this in
front of a jury. They're
trying to get out of it.
"Obviously we're
not to going to get in
their way (while they
attempt) to drop it."

Public works
employee under
review
A city public works
employee is also under
review for his actions -
off the clock.
David Szakalos, 51,
was arrested a week ago,
and held without bond
on burglary and battery
charges.
Szakalos allegedly
entered the home of
an elderly neighbor to
burglarize the house.
The elderly woman,

Rape Elimination Act,

2003, which addresses

In Florida and other
states, jails have until
August of 2014 before
state governors send in
inspectors and report
back on how well vol-
untary PREA standards
have been implemented
in their states. Those
who've made less than
exemplary progress
stand to lose millions in
grants.
Sarasota County is in
good shape, Lilly says.

comes to policy devel-
opment. The standards
we use are legally
based. They shouldn't
be arbitrary. It encom-

Charlotte County
Sheriff deputies tracked
Szakalos to his house in
Englewood, following a
trail of blood drops.
Director of
Administrative Services
Alan Bullock said
Szakalos's case is under
review to see if his
actions violate any city
personnel policies or
rules.
He has no sick
time or holiday leave
available, and a family
member called in to
say he would be unable
to come to work until
further notice, Bullock
said.
City Manager Ed
Lavallee said it's too ear-
ly to determine whether
Szakalos will keep his
job.
"I don't want to

said. "Obviously there

The two were working

The subcontractor,

Two arrested after officer is threatened multiple times


A man and woman have
both been charged with
simple assault on a law
enforcement officer fol-
lowing a Nov. 6 incident.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report, a female deputy
responded to a family
disturbance at a home
on Tarpon Road in South
Venice just after 10 p.m.
There, she encountered
Jessica A. Hagen, 19,
and Sage Elliot Kuse, 20,
both of whom refused
to answer questions or
provide identification,
and screamed at the
deputy to leave.
The deputy also
observed both young
people get in the faces of
others at the home, who
wanted the two removed
from the residence.
Kuse allegedly kept
approaching the deputy,
"throwing his hands up
and tensing" in her face,
while Hagen called the
deputy several derogato-
ry names and said if the
deputy wasn't wearing a
badge, she would fight
and kill her if she could,
the report states.
Hagen also knocked
over a chair and picked
up a six-pack of soda and
threw it in the deputy's
direction.
Both Hagen and Kuse
were arrested and held at
the Sarasota County Jail
without bond.

me over"

mouthed "help." She
later said her husband
tried to run her over.
Shaver said the two
began to argue while at
Club 41 early Sunday
morning. She left the
club walking. He fol-
lowed her in the vehicle
and drove onto the
sidewalk in an aggressive
manner. Eventually she
got in. He denied trying
to hit her.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


A dream one night led to a new career


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

People start a
business for many
reasons, but occa-
sionally it can be due
to a rare occurrence.
Such a situation
arose for a young
lady in Venice who
recalls having a very
vivid dream in which
a close relative,
no longer living,
encouraged her
to pursue a latent
ambition.
"I had a crazy
dream relating
to my father who
died when I was a
child and it forever
changed my life,"
Lisa Dubeansky said.
"I woke up and be-
gan the footwork to
launch my business
in January 2011 ."
Renting time at a
kitchen in Sarasota,
she started her
business, Hosted
Gourmet, which is


home-based on the
island of Venice. She
created the name as
it is descriptive of
her service going
to clients' parties and
ensuring the host
becomes the guest at
their own event.
Initially, it was
house parties, which
are infrequent; now
she has moved to
corporate luncheons,
pharmaceutical
events and business
events. Often these
groups order the
same menu, which
can become boring,
but with Hosted
Gourmet, it changes
all the time because
she customizes
everything to ensure
there is no repetition.
"With no menus, I
am always changing
the food, sometimes
with seasonal
ingredients," she
said. "Customers will
tell me their favorite
ingredients, and I


incorporate those in
what I prepare for
their event."
Leaving Cleveland,
Ohio, where she
grew up, she worked
for nine years bar-
tending in Chicago
restaurants and
traveling in Europe,
Argentina and Brazil
and all over the U.S.
In 2005, she devel-
oped medical issues
and came to Venice
to join her mom.
She began working
at various local
restaurants although
her intentions were
to take up nursing
eventually. Admitting
she found it was not
easy and she did not
feel connected, she
began looking at
other opportunities.
"I had this
concept of Hosted
Gourmet for some
time but did not
believe I could do
it," she said. "In
2011,1 catered and


participated in the
Iron Chef event, did
a magazine hosting
for 150 people and
a party for 100 and
realized my business
career had begun."
Continuing her
career at the Crow's
Nest while seeking
opportunities for
her catering busi-
ness, she began
networking. Joining
the local chapter of
Business Networking
International proved
invaluable and
enabled her to make
Hosted Gourmet a
full-time business.
Two medium sized
local businesses con-
tracted with her to
do all their lunches
and recently she
signed up a com-
pany with offices
along the Sun Coast
to create and cater
for their employee
Christmas parties.
Her personal goal
is to have her own


kitchen in Venice
within a year. The
ultimate goal she
has is to be the next
Food Network TV
star on the reality
show of the Food
Network, where
the winner has
their own TV show
teaching people
how to throw a party
with unique, easy
appetizers.
"I am all about
color and flavor,
loving the way food
marries, coming
together into unique
dishes," she said. "I
excel and I am most
creative in appetiz-
ers and salads."
As the business
grows, she still re-
lates every day to the
tagline with which
she launched Hosted
Gourmet- "Be the
guest at your own
party."
Hosted Gourmet
can be contacted by
calling 941-323-9898.

Dubeansky, owner of Hosted Gourmet, catered for a
local business grand opening last week on the island of
Venice.


Want to place chairs on parade route? Your time is coming

ter 6 p.m. is the first day

of West Venice Avenue for
the 36th Annual Venice
Holiday Parade route.
Items put out before that

confirmed Pam Johnson,
the Marketing and
Communications Officer
for the city of Venice.
This is to prevent
accidents, obstructions
and inconvenience to

tourists during the days
prior to this popular
Christmas event on
Saturday, Nov. 30. The
event is sponsored by
the city of Venice and
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation.

Center. Food and drinks
will be available for sale
throughout the parade
route.

Hobby Becomes
Business
What began as a
dog-grooming hobby has
developed into a busi-
ness for Kae Handley,
who has opened Kae's
Canine Cuts at 308
Laurel Road in the Laurel
Square strip mall next
to the old Nokomis Post
Office.
She offers total, loving,
gentle grooming care
with baths, nail, sham-
poos, cutting and styling
for most dogs specifi-
cally, dogs weighing less
than 50 pounds, the poo-
dles, Shih-Tzu, maltese,
yorkies, spaniels, small
terriers and their mixes.
It is preferable for cus-
tomers to drop off their
dogs, shop and collect
them later.
From Alma, Mich., she
began work at 16 and
then became a registered
nurse working at Gratiot
Community Hospital for
14 years. Moving to this
area, she worked season-
ally at Venice Regional
Medical Center for five
years. As life became
stressful and harder,
she decided to open a
business she enjoyed
doing by taking training
and becoming a certified
dog groomer.

All seasons to be featured at Ristorante San Marco


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Florida may not have
the four seasons but
soon, diners will have the
pleasure of experiencing
each season starting with
fall and winter just as it
would be in Venice, Italy.
The intentions
of co-owners Luigi
Ferraro, Nico and Mino
Candelora are to provide
dinners matching the


Italian seasons at their
new Ristorante San
Marco at 305B West
Venice Avenue across
from Daiquiri Deck.
"This name reflects then
Italian Mediterranean
cuisine you would enjoy
in the atmosphere of St
Mark's Square in Venice,
Italy," Ferraro said.
With 62 seats inside
and outside on the
sidewalk, they will serve
casual lunch, then


fine dining dinner and
offer a take-out menu
and service. Maitre de
is Nico Candelora, an
Italian chef from south of
Naples, Italy.
Providing a high quali-
ty personal service, their
selection of food will be
served European-style,
served individually at the
table, with de-boning
fish and carving meats
on cutting boards made
from olive trees.


"Opening in autumn
and winter, we will
have Cornish Galletto,
Caccitort, Pheasant and
wild boar meat," said Chef
Luigi Raso from Napoli.
"Our menu will include
items for guests who
prefer vegetarian, vegan
and gluten free choices."
Everything will be
homemade, even the
pasta, and the spe-
cialty items include
Mediterranean Sea Bass


served with rabe, stuffed
fresh mussels with
breadcrumbs and garlic
together with whole cold
cut authentic Italian
cheeses and dried cured
meats like salami.
Waiters will wear blue
woolen shirts with white
aprons and khaki pants,
and vacancies exist for
people who want to work
in this environment.
The restaurant will
open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.


including holidays.
The Candelora family
has been in the restaurant
business since 1898 when
their grandfather opened
his first restaurant in
southeastern Italy. Putting
their experience in the
flavor, service and organi-
zation with 28 years' ex-
perience, Nico Candelora
has worked in Italian and
Miami Beach restaurants,
and Mino Candelora has
22 years' experience.


Left Coast Seafood Restaurant opens in new location


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Left Coast Seafood
Restaurant has opened at a
new location at 385
U.S. 41 Bypass at the Albee
Farm Road traffic light
intersection.
Traditionally, they


have had an aquarium in
the restaurant. That has
changed. The aquarium is
now larger.
"Family owned and oper-
ated by either myself or my
dad on site every day, the
only thing having changed
is the address," said Mariel
Arbuckle, co-owner. "From


the long bar, we are serving
wine, beer and liquor."
A casual family restau-
rant, it has the original
menu featuring fish,
chicken, hand-cut steaks
and burgers. Further, the
entire weekly bar specials
are coming back. Opening
seven days at 11 a.m. for


lunch and dinner, the
restaurant will serve the
entire menu all day until
closing at 9 p.m.
Many of the familiar
signs of Left Coast Seafood
decorate the walls of the
restaurant, which has
seating for 150 diners.
Eventually, when the


banqueting room is
opened up, they will cater
to a total of 240 people.
They are still working on
that room, and it will not be
in use until it is completed.
Former customers will
recognize many of the
familiar faces of Left Coast
employees, most of whom


returned to work at the new
location.
"We hired four former
Crossroads employees back
and an additional 5 to 10
new people, making a total
of 40," Arbuckle said. "Since
opening, it has been a great
week and we could not be
happier."

Bookstore manager becomes owner, expands biz


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
From trainee to business
owner in just eight years is
the success many young
entrepreneurs dream
about. For one enthusiastic
young woman, it became
reality a few weeks ago
when she took over a thriv-
ing small store inVenice.
Denee MacDonald
obtained a job at Annie's
Books and Gifts at 1522
U.S. 41 Bypass to the rear
of Starbucks Coffee. At 17
in 2005, she was employed
part-time by store owner
Ann Sink. It was a most
successful relationship as
MacDonald had been a
reader for most of her life
and soon became en-
grossed with the unique-
ness of the business.
At the time, Annie's
Books and Gifts only
carried secondhand books
but had a good customer
clientele buying used pa-
perbacks and then trading
them in toward more used
paperbacks. Recycling is
a green way to help the
environment.
Within a very short time,
she became full-time man-
ager as the business grew.
Their inventory of both
fiction and non-fiction
totaled more than 20,000
when counted four years


ago. At the time, the owner
began increasing the
variety of items available
by introducing two lines of
candles, then some jewelry.
At the beginning of this
year, she took an extended
maternity leave returning
on Nov. 1 not only to
her full time position as
manager but also taking
over as the proprietor.
"My long-time mentor
Ann Sink decided after 17
years to retire from the
business," MacDonald
said. "She will be greatly
missed but my sister,
Dakoda Drew, has joined
me and we look forward
to keepingVenice's favorite
bookstore alive for future
generations to enjoy."
Annie's is no longer the
small bookstore; it now has
the best-selling hardbacks
and paperbacks, a selec-
tion of Betsey Johnson
jewelry and handbags

There are beautiful puz-

Used paperbacks are
still the main item and
MacDonald is hoping to
reach out to a lot of young-
er people who do not know
about the store to convert
them to become readers of
our books.
"I think the magic of
reading is kind of lost
on my generation, so I
am bringing a younger
feel to the store while
keeping all our regular
customers," she said.
"I would love to get the
word out to our custom-
ers that I am back in the

OUR VIEW


Don't leave SCAT bus riders in the rain


ost people don't give it a
moment's thought, but if you
ever ride a SCAT bus, it is
something you are well aware of.
Especially if it's bright, sunny
and hot. Even more so it it's raining
heavily.
Less than 90 percent of the 2,000-
plus bus stops in the Sarasota County
Area Transit system have bus shelters
that give riders a bench to sit on or
a place to escape the hot sun or the
rain. For the most part, people are left
standing or sitting next to the SCAT
signs along the routes.
This is not an optimal way to run a
fixed-route bus system, fair to say.
But bus shelters are expensive.
Sarasota County recently analyzed
purchase costs and showed the
average shelter (9 feet long) with
rolled aluminum roof cost $4,725 to
buy. A 4-foot bench added $275 to


the price. Another $275 went for a
trash receptacle, bringing the total
cost to $5,275.
By comparison, Manatee County's
bus system paid only $3,500 for an
average shelter, but $360 for a bench
and $525 for a heavy trash receptacle.
The total there was only $4,385.
Manatee's shelters tend to be small-
er, the SCAT analysis noted. Sarasota
has five or six sizes and designs. This
was an average and Sarasota's tend to
be larger. Besides, the actual cost of
a shelter is only a fraction of the total
cost of construction.
The county has to pour a concrete
pad that can withstand the force of
heavy winds on an anchored shelter.
The pad must have a walkway in order
to be ADA-compliant. It must have
approved drainage for water runoff.
It may need retaining walls. It needs
rights-of-way, which may have to be


purchased. It needs a building permit.
Oh brother.
Back in February, SCAT and public
works analysts estimated an average
cost of $40,000 per structure. Some
recent installations there were 51 in
the past year ranged in price from
$61,911 for eight unspecified shelters,
to $36,885 for 13 shelters in North
Port, down to $17,874 for shelters
North County and $16,980 in South
County.
Last week, Sarasota County com-
missioners approved the installation
of 25 new shelters in the coming
year (eight in South County), but
reluctantly; these were well into the
bureaucratic pipeline and rejection
would have caused more delay.
But commissioners made it clear
they wanted a lot more shelters as
soon as possible. Commissioner Joe
Barbetta told SCAT officials to look for


"low-hanging fruit," presumably the
cheaper, easier sites. He also suggest-
ed whittling the options to two or
three basic styles.
We agree: Smaller shelters would be
appropriate in many locations.
He also insisted transit officials get
together with their colleagues in the
public works and stormwater depart-
ments to figure out places where the
permitting and construction rigma-
role will be minimized.
We hope it's possible.
Government invariably compli-
cates things for varying reasons,
some valid and some far less so. The
message is right: Make it work. Don't
install structures in low-traffic sites
simply because they are cheaper,
but try to find a way to stretch the
funding.
Don't leave SCAT riders out in the
rain.


Ah, yes, the joys



of homeless ness


When I was the editor of the
Gondolier Sun, I read pretty
much everything that went
into the paper. Now that I have
other responsibilities, I don't
pre-read as much of the paper,
though that may change after
a recent "Let'em Have It" call
that luckily was brought to my
attention.
If it hadn't been, I might
have missed learning this
enlightening fact: Homeless
people like being homeless.
Here, in case you missed it,
is the pertinent part of the call:
"We don't need to do a center
for homeless people because
you know what, they want to
be homeless. They like being
drunks, they like panhandling,
they don't want any help."
Now I understand:
Homelessness has grown not
because of a weak economy,
or the closure of mental health
facilities, or the fact that many
families are one crisis of any
type from losing their dwell-
ing, or the lack of adequate
substance-abuse treatment
and other resources. No, it's
because it's so darn much fun.
And what's not to like? You
get to be a drunk, you can
set your own hours for your
panhandling job and you sleep
under the stars. It's almost
like being in Scouts, without
having to buy a uniform.
The call made me wonder
why an industrious homeless
person hasn't come up with
the idea of "The Homeless
Experience," to allow people
who have housing to get a taste
of all that homelessness has to
offer. He'd make a fortune.
But if it's as good as adver-
tised, everyone would aban-
don their houses for tents and
bridge overpasses, and we'd
have another real estate crisis.
Bad idea.
Thankfully, I've never been
homeless, but I camped out
a lot as a Scout and a Scout
leader and always had a good
time. Here's one of the major
reasons: I knew it would be
over in two or three days.
Homelessness tends to go on
longer. A lot longer.
I don't want to cast as-
persions on the person who
called, but I think I can safely
assume he or she isn't a social
worker with local experience.
Perhaps some information
about our local homeless
population from people who
are involved with them will
give him or her a different


perspective.
The Suncoast Partnership to
End Homelessness conducts
a homeless census in Sarasota
and Manatee counties each
year. This year's took place on
the night of Jan. 27, 2013.
Among the findings:
The number of people
counted as homeless in the re-
gion was 2,054, an increase of
40 percent over the 2011 count,
possibly due to a combination
of changes in methodology
and the inclusion of all home-
less family members. Still, the
number of homeless is likely
low, given the Partnership's
limited resources and the fact
that some of the homeless
avoid participation for a
variety of reasons.
86 percent were adult-only
households.
The vast majority of
homeless counted were adult,
male and white, though with
blacks represented at a higher
percentage than in the general
population.
39 percent said they had a
physical or mental disability, or
substance-abuse issues.
8.21 percent were veterans.
Nearly 30 percent of those
surveyed said they were
victims of domestic violence.
42 percent had been home-
less for more than one year.
64 percent said their home-
lessness was due to unemploy-
ment or financial hardship.
22 percent were children
under 18, a total of
439 children.
Even allowing for the
possibility that some of the
census participants weren't
completely honest in their re-
sponses, there's still no basis to
conclude that all the homeless
are drunk panhandlers who
don't want help. The children
certainly aren't; most of them
are in school, which is good.
In fact, according to the
Partnership's website, many
homeless adults actually
work "regular" jobs but
don't make enough money
to afford housing. No more
than a quarter have mental or
substance-abuse issues, and
those groups overlap to some
degree.
And the fastest-growing
homeless population is
families, not the stereotypical
bum the caller seems to have
envisioned.
Yes, there are some homeless
people who will never live a
"normal" life no matter what
assistance they're given. That's
OK, if they're not hurting
anyone. But most are living
a lifestyle they feel they were
forced into, not that they
chose. And they don't like it.
They deserve help, not
thoughtless contempt.

local homelessness, visit

Don't rescue these people.
I think it's about time we
stop trying to rescue hikers
who leave no address and go
hiking in inaccessible spots
and get lost. Skiers who ski
where landslides are prevalent.
Climbers who climb impossi-
ble cliffs and can't get out of
their own way. And a bunch of
other devil-type things. If these
people are going to engage in
this type of activity, if they get
into trouble, let them call their
family on a cell phone and let
them pay for the cost of rescue.
I'm tired of helping people out
of dopey things.
President lied. I just want to
state that I'm outraged that the
president used the "you can
keep your health care" line. I
truly think that the promise he
made got him many votes, and
now we found out it was a lie.
I'm just outraged.
Volleyball announcer. I've
gone to two girls' volleyball
games and I'm considering
not going again as long as
the present announcer is still
working there. He has a loud,
very loud, screaming voice
that is totally unintelligible.
Rather than a slow, thoughtful
voice that could be understood
by the crowd, he holds the
microphone close to his lips
and literally screams.
Bad job, Bank of America.
The Bank of America at
Jacaranda Boulevard and
Center better get their act
together. One hour of waiting
to transfer money from one
account of theirs to another
account of theirs. Lobby was
full of people when I left
waiting for a teller. One teller.
They were all the way to the
front door. All the chairs at
one point were filled with
waiting people. You can't make
customers wait an hour just to
transfer some money. We all
thought that at the time, too.
Loved the parade. I'm well
into my seventies and I loved
the Venice Halloween Parade.
Those kids were so cute. I'd
never miss it.
Museum design is ugly. I


Let 'em


Have It
think the design for the new
Venice area museum is ugly
and does not complement
other buildings. It's way too
boxy. It looks like a hodge-
podge. I bet Nolan wouldn't
like it either.
Guns. I hate guns, but as
long as they will be made
somewhere, Venice might as
well profit.
The jail. I'm calling about


the Sheriff closing the South
County Jail. I think it's another
case of the South County get-
ting the shaft. Also, I think this
is resulting from him getting
into a match with the mayor.
It's unfortunate that it's going
to impact the other police
departments.
Sheriff leaving is mayor's
fault. I hope the mayor is
happy. He obviously ticked
off the Sheriff, and now the
Sheriff is going to take his toys
and go home and it's going
to impact the city of Venice
negatively. Now we're going to
have officers up in Sarasota
instead of Venice. I hope the
mayor is happy that he keeps
bringing up dual taxation
stuff and keeps slamming the
Sheriff about the officers in the
schools and everything else.
Nice job, mayor.
Editor's Note: This newspaper
has supported the mayor's
stance.

LET 'EM
FROM PAGE 8

Democrata. Democrats
think that if a Democrat
does it, it's right; and if
it's a Republican idea,
Republicans think it's
right. All the while,
forgetting what is right
for America. When you
watch the representa-
tives vote 100 percent by
party, there is something
wrong. It means the
vote is for the party and
not for America. Let's
clean up Washington
and Tallahassee.
Forget Republicans
and Democrats and be
Americans.
Coyotes & Rats. I live
in South Venice on the
alphabet street, A to Z.
Well, we've had this thing
with coyotes eating our
cats Maybe that's why all
of a sudden we've got so
many rats around here.
There's so many houses
in foreclosure that are


sitting there empty, and
now everyone is fighting
rats. I wish there was
some way the county
could help us, but they're
just taking over the
houses.
Unemployment office.
It's been four weeks now
and unemployment still
hasn't gotten it together.
They're very slowly
getting checks to some
of the people. But I call
almost every day and
I'm on hold from two to
three hours. They tell me
something and the next
day, I have to call again.
Making roads bet-
ter. If you drive down
West Venice Ave. from
Business 41 to Harbor,
it's like a washboard. It
seems to me thatVenice
City Council could find
some funds to blacktop
that area. The people
who come downtown
do not deserve to have
to drive on those streets.
It's just unbelievable that
they're finding money for
everything else, but not


to blacktop that. That's
not a good thing for our
visitors here.
We all help each
other. Young people pay
into Social Security for
others' benefits. Young
people and old people
pay taxes to educate
children that they
don't have in school.
Are you against that?
Taxpayers pay in the
long run for uninsured
people who go to the
emergency room for
free. So, we all chip in
for the well-being of our
fellow man. Some day
there will be someone
out there helping you.
Think of yourself as a
good Samaritan and quit
griping.
Beach situation.
I'm calling about your
article in the Venice
Gondolier Sun about the
stormwater project to
protect Venice beaches
from hazardous, biolog-
ical contamination that
have been closing the
beach on a regular basis


for the last three years.
They've finally figured
out the contamination
problem. And now after
studying this for years
and hiring engineers,
they came up with a
reasonable solution that
is very simple. But 30
people have decided
that it is not what they
would like. So the
desires of 30 residents
somehow outweighs
the benefit to the entire
population of Venice
and the thousands and
thousands of people
who use the beach every
day. NIMBY stands for
not in my backyard,
and I think it's about
time in this country that
we stop letting a few
individuals, the squeaky
wheels, cost all of us so
much money and time
wasted arguing over
something that is in the
public good. Yes, it may
cause a slight inconve-
nience for a few resi-
dents. OK. What it will
do is keep our beaches


safe for the thousands
who use them every day.
Guns aren't the
problem. Guns are not
the problems. People are
the problem. If that man
who walked into that
Sandy Springs school
had walked in with a
machete, he could have
cleaned out four or
five classrooms before
anybody knew that there
was anything wrong. The
fact that it was a gun,
there was a report. The
kid who killed all those
people in the theater. If
he had walked into the
theater with a machete
and walked up the aisles,
he could have killed a
whole lot of people. As
I said, guns are not the
problem, people are the
problem.
You take guns away,
take the machete away,
they got baseball bats or
they've got rocks. There's
always something. If
someone wants to kill,
they're going to kill.
People are the problem.


SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A

And what we have to
do is call out the people
with mental problems.
You do that, and you'll
take a lot of the people
out of the system. But
guns are definitely not
the problem. Thank you
for doing what you're
doing.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL



Indians hope monthlong prep leads to upset win


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR
Typically, a football
team will get a week,
maybe two, to prepare for
an upcoming opponent.
Sensing that a win over
Armwood in Friday's 6A
regional quarterfinal will
take an atypical effort,
the Venice Indians (8-2)
will come in as prepared
as they possibly can be.
By the time Friday night
rolls around, the Indians
will have spent nearly a
month preparing for this
showdown. Once Venice
lost to Largo Oct. 18 (and
were assured of playing
Armwood in the first
round of the playoffs), the
Indians began preparing
for the Hawks, who boast
a perfect 10-0 record and
have outscored oppo-
nents 401-42 this season.
A bye week and two
nonthreatening opponents
at the end of the regular
season schedule allowed


Venice to look ahead to its
biggest game of the season,
one that few outside of
Venice expect them to win.
The Indians originally
planned to meet the
Hawks in the regional
semifinal, but Venice's
last-second loss to Largo
moved the clash up a
week. Knowing a post-
season run would have
to go through Armwood
eventually, the Indians say
now is as good a time as
any to knock off the two-
time state champions.
'As soon as we lost to
Largo, our goal changed
to beating Armwood,"
Venice Head Coach John
Peacock said. "We're
excited about it."
Senior defensive
tackle Dane Dabney said,
"During the bye week
(Oct. 21-26), we focused
on Armwood and dissect-
ed their film. So we should
definitely be prepared on
Friday night."
Venice will likely rely


heavily on running back
Terry Polk, who broke
VHS' single-season record
for rushing yards with
1,728 during the regular
season. But the Hawks
are well aware that Polk is
the Indians' go-to threat,
and physically dominant
teams in the mold of
Armwood (e.g., Manatee)
have had success neutral-
izingVenice's ground game
in recent years.
The Indians' passing
game showed flashes over
the course of the year, but
was unable to demon-
strate consistent profi-
ciency. Many times Venice
didn't need to throw, with
Polk and the offensive
line chewing up yards
in chunks. That likely
won't be the case Friday,
however, so quarterback
Dom Marino's play will be
paramount if the Indians
are to advance.
The Indians defense
will have its hands full
with a mauling Armwood


Venice will need a big game from its defense to advance past Armwood, which scored over 400
points during the regular season.
offensive line that will Venice's odds of winning "It's gonna take every-
have a size advantage over will increase exponentially body working together
Venice. The Indians have if Marino and the offense and working hard," Polk
been strong against the run are able to sustain drives said. "This is the actual
all season, but wore down and keep their own defense season right here."

HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL


Indians sweep Mustangs, advance to Final Four


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice Indians
(23-7) advanced to their
eighth Final Four in
school history Saturday,
overpowering Mitchell
(24-6) from start to finish
for a 25-12, 25-10, 25-14
sweep of the Mustangs,
who entered having won
20 consecutive matches.
Though Mitchell
entered with the prettier
record and home-court
advantage, the Indians
proved to be better-suited
for the big stage, thanks
to months of playing
many of the state's most
prestigious programs.
Mustangs Head Coach
Keith Paulk admitted
his team's record was
padded by playing
inferior competition, and
credited Venice's sched-
ule as one of the deciding
factors that allowed the
Indians to run away with
the match.
"They play this level of
match far more than we
do," Paulk said. "They're
playing state champions


from last year pretty
much two-thirds of their
season. And we can't
replicate that."
Leading 8-6 in the
opening set, the Indians
went on a 17-6 run to
seize control of the match.
After the Mustangs took
a 7-3 lead in the second,
Venice responded with an
11-0 run as the Indians'
myriad attacks kept the
Mustangs on their heels.
"Their sophistication
on offense is just tre-
mendous," Paulk said.
"They're the defending
champs, and the proba-
ble state champs."
Venice got a team-high
10 kills from Hannah
Richards, with Lauren
Mattmuller (five kills, five
blocks), Gen Beaumier
(six kills) and Cassie
Kasmirski (five aces,
10 digs) playing key roles
in the win as well. The
Indians had 11 team
blocks and served 10 aces.
Venice, which sput-
tered during the first
month of the season, has
hit its stride over the past
three weeks, winning 11


of their last 12 matches.
Head Coach Brian
Wheatley and his players
agreed that the team's
improved passing de-
serves much of the credit
for the turnaround.
"This was probably the
worst passing team I've
ever had," Wheatley said
of the August-September
version of the Indians.
"We've spent more time
passing this year than I
ever have, times 100. And
now we're one of the top
passing teams I've ever
had."
Mattmuller echoed
Wheatley saying, "It's re-
ally remarkable, because
in the beginning of the
season (the passing) was
really questionable. We
do passing during prac-
tice every single day, and
we spend so much time
on it. We break it down
to footwork, platforms,
everything.
"I've never done that
much passing, but
obviously it's paid off for
our team."
That development was
on full display Saturday


as the Indians routinely
got the ball to setter
Kiona McSwain, who
dispensed 21 assists and
added 13 digs, four kills
and two blocks.
"I'm barely moving,"
McSwain said. "All I have
to do is set our hitters.
It's awesome."
The senior transferred
to Venice from Riverview,
and said the adjustment
has been equal parts
difficult and enjoyable.
"You just work so
much harder (at Venice),
but you want to work
hard," she said. "It's
weird, but I love it. I don't
want to leave."
With the win, the
Indians have a chance to
win back-to-back state ti-
tles for the first time in the
program's history. Venice
won state volleyball titles
in 1998, 2005 and 2012.
Wheatley, though, said
his team can't afford
to start thinking about
Thursday's champion-
ship match just yet.
"We're all about the
next match," he said.
"There's no reason to talk


The Indians flexed their muscles both literally and figuratively
Saturday, dominating Mitchell in three sets to advance to the
school's eighth Final Four.

onship when we've got a

Kessler, Starykowicz



shine in Rev3 triathlon


STAFF REPORT

Meredith Kessler and
Andrew Starykowicz
both used a strong bike
to gap the fields at Rev3
Venice Florida triathlon
Sunday.
With a stacked field
in both the men's
and the women's, the
races did not disap-
point. Series leaders
Lauren Goss and Eric
Limkemann secured
their top spot for the
series finale in May of
2014 with their podium
finishes at today's
event.
Todd Skipworth led
the men to shore, with
Cameron Dye on his
feet. However, the break
was not significant as
the main pack, which
included all the main
players, hit TI not far
behind. The breakaway
worked on the flat and
fast bike course, with
Starykowicz taking the
lead by mile 4 of the
bike.
A pack of 14 riders


assembled but could
do nothing but watch
him ride away. At mile
38, Dye put in a surge
to challenge the pack.
Limkemann stayed
in contact with Dye
and the two entered
T2 together, down
over 5 minutes to
Starykowicz.
However, no one
would challenge
Starykowicz today. He
cruised to the win.
"It was great to return
to Venice," Starykowicz
said. "The community
support was amazing!
I was thrilled to come
back and set a new
world record on the
bike."
Linkemann show-
cased his improved run
today and passed Dye
within the first 2km.
Richie Cunningham
was moving quickly
through the field and
took over second place
by mile 3. Cunningham
had Greg Billington
right with him stride
for stride for the first


lap. Billington fell off
the pace in the second
lap, and Limkemann
repassed him to take
third.
"Once again, Rev3
put on an amazing
race at an awesome
venue, which attracted
a quality pro field,"
Cunningham said. "I
had a great battle today
and kept my chances
alive for the Rev3
series."
This was Venice's
second year hosting the
event.
Limkemann sits atop
the series standings
heading into Knoxville
2014.
"I can't think of a bet-
ter place than Florida
to end the season,"
Limkemann said. "The
conditions were perfect
and the competition
was tough, so it made
for a fast day. I'm
looking forward to
enjoying the off season,
then focusing on the
series championship in
Knoxville next May."

County approves expansion of Blind Pass Park


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

The public will soon
have more beach access
at Blind Pass Park in
Englewood. Commis-
sioners recently unan-
imously approved a
$2.3 million deal to
purchase a 1.67-acre
Gulf-to-bay property
directly south of the
park on Manasota Key.
The land has a home
on it, with approximately
137 linear feet of beach
frontage on the Gulf of
Mexico. The property
contains beach and
dunes, a small bit of
coastal hammock, and
mangroves along Lemon
Bay. In addition to the
home on the Gulf side,
there is a boat dock
across the road on the
bay.
The parcel was one
of several targeted by
the county's Natural
Resources and Recreation

addressed the crowd.
"It is very humbling
to stand here among so
many living heroes of this
great country," Holic said.
United States Air Force
Master Sgt. Barbara
Miller-Vaughan spoke
next.
"The most important
thing I did as a mother
was teach my children
to be patrons," Miller-
Vaughan said. "Nothing is
more important than our
country and the love we
have for it."
Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson talked about
members of her family
who have served in the
military, including her
grandfather, father and
numerous others.
"It is the highest
honor to be here today
to represent the county,"
Robinson said. "But I
want to take a personal
moment to thank all who
served for securing the
safety and freedom for
my three young children
- you all are my heroes."

Blind Pass Beach
Park is in the middle
of Manasota Key, just
about a mile north of the
Charlotte County line. It
extends Gulf-to-bay and
includes picnic shelters,
restrooms, a nature
trail, playground, boat
dock, kayak launch and
the historic Hermitage
complex.
The nonprofit
Hermitage Artist Retreat
has leased the complex
since 2001, and has
invested in the repair of
the five buildings on the
property.
County Parks and

Carolyn Brown said the

Purple Heart recipient
and POW Col. Jack Olsen
clenched his fist over

commander of a B17
four-engine bomber
when he was 20 years
old. His plane went down
in Yugoslavia, and the
crew of 10 all made it
safely to the ground.
The group was sepa-
rated and Olsen served
in a prison camp for 10
months.
"We marched 73 days
through the winter snow
because the Russian
army was coming
through and we needed
to get out of there," Olsen
said.
Gavin Dixon, a student
atVenice Middle School,
handed a card of thanks
to Olsen. Students at
Taylor Ranch Elementary
School made the cards
and Dixon passed them
out to veterans.
Handshakes and
salutes were prominent
throughout the crowd
as old friends as well
as strangers embraced,
shared a story and shed a
tear in remembrance.

part of the new site and
will provide all funds
for restoration and
upkeep of the site. That
relieves the county of
maintenance costs.
Brown said the group
will also use the resi-
dence on the site to
increase opportunities
for artists to come to
Sarasota County, and
the Hermitage will use
the upper floor of the
house for their adminis-
trative offices.
The Hermitage has
also pledged to expand


its already well-attended
free public events.
Hermitage Executive
Director Bruce Rogers
said the programs have
grown in popularity
since they started in
2006 and are held about
once a month. They
usually draw 150 to 225
people. Events would
also be able to be held
inside the house in
the event of inclement
weather.
"This will benefit
our community by the
national and international


acclaim of expansion of
their program," Brown
said.
The commission
unanimously approved
the acquisition with
little discussion.
Commissioner Chris-
tine Robinson said,
despite the high price,
the property will be
an asset to the county,
and that includes the
Hermitage.
"I've heard from a lot
of people in Englewood
that would like to see
this happen," Robinson
said. "This is a once-
in-a-lifetime possibility
and we'll probably
never get it again."
"This is a win-win,


and even if the
Hermitage wasn't right
next door, the fact that
it's adjacent to a current
park would make it
a win-win anyway,"
Commissioner Charles
Hines added. "The fact
that we can turn it over
to an organization that's
proven itself beyond
worthy to manage
public property and
take care of it makes
this an easy decision."
The county must
close on the trans-
action by Dec. 31.
The purchase would
be funded through
the county's capital
improvement program.

documentary to premier Sunday


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

"Character Makes
the Man, the Story
of Kentucky Military
Institute: 1845-1971," a
documentary about the
country's oldest military
school, will have its
premier Sunday at Venice
Theatre.
"The theme of the
school is really what it
was all about," said Marty
McGowan of the class of


1965. "We have all kept a
sense of what the school
did for us. We were at the
tail end of its history."
The Venice premier of
"Character Makes the
Man" will be Sunday,
Nov. 17 at Venice Theatre.
Tickets are $20. The
theater will open its doors
at 7 p.m. for a reception
before the film, which
will be shown at 8 p.m.
After the screening, there
will be Q&A session with
several alumni. Call


941-488-1115.
While the school may
have influenced its stu-
dents, it also is credited
with saving Venice in one
of the city's darkest hours
as the Florida land boom
ended and the Great
Depression swept across
the nation.
In 1928, the John
Nolen-designed city had
4,000 residents. It was

Nicholases met Capt.


Richard Phillips himself
at the annual Navy SEALs
Museum Muster Day in
Fort Pierce, Fla. Phillips
had been the guest
speaker.
Hazel said the film
captured much of what
Phillips told them about
what he experienced on
board the U.S. container
ship, Maersk Alabama,
when it was hijacked by
Somali pirates in 2009.
"What he told us
was that his first line of
thought was to protect


his crew which he
did," Hazel said. "From
what he told us, (the
film) was very true to
life."
Art recalled how
Phillips said the most
harrowing part of the
experience was when the
pirates first boarded the
ship. Phillips didn't talk
about the last moments
of his captivity when
he was kept tied up in a
small lifeboat.

Venice-Ocala Heart Institute celebrates 10 years


From mere vision to a nationally recognized reality


ByANGEENEH ADAMIAN
SPECIAL TO THE VENICE
GONDOLIER
One of the nation's
leaders in geriatric heart
surgery, the Venice-
Ocala Heart Institute,
is commemorating 10
years of service in the
community.
"We founded Venice-
Ocala Heart Institute
with a vision of bringing
world-class care to
our community and
continue to provide
excellent treatment to
every patient who walks
through our doors,"
said Dr. Mateo Dayo,
founding partner and
cardiovascular, thoracic
and vascular surgeon.
"With 10 years behind
us now and countless
awards and recognition,
we believe we have
accomplished that goal,"
said Dr. Jonathan Fong,
founding partner and
cardiovascular, thoracic
and vascular surgeon.


Venice-Ocala Heart
Institute has been
recognized as one of
Thomson Reuters Top
100 Cardiovascular
Hospitals alongside
other institutions such
as the Mayo Clinic. The
institute has made the
list an additional four
years consecutively.
Fong and Dayo
working exclusively
with Venice Regional
Medical Center have
the lowest complication
rates, fastest operating
room times and shortest
intensive care unit times
in their five-county area.
In fact, an overwhelm-
ing majority 83 per-
cent- of the institute's
patients are over the age
of 65; this is 20 percent
higher than the national
average for cardiac
surgery patients.
"We welcome patients
who may have been
deemed too high-risk
due to their age. We
believe every patient


should be given the
opportunity to improve
his or her quality of life,"
Dayo said.
The institute credits it
success to consistently
adapting to the latest
medical technologies,
including minimally
invasive techniques.
Healthgrades.com,
a well-known physi-
cian-rating site, named
the Venice-Ocala Heart
Institute among the top
5 percent of programs
nationwide.
"This accolade means
a lot to us since our
patients' testimonials
were used to calculate
our nomination," Dayo
said.
"From a mere vision a
decade ago, our institute
has become a nationally
recognized heart pro-
gram helping patients
from the Venice commu-
nity and beyond," Fong
said.
"We could not be
more proud of what we


have accomplished and
all the patients who have
touched us. We are look-
ing to many more years
of service in the Venice
community," he said.
About the Venice-
Ocala Heart Institute:
The foundation of the
institute is simple: to
care for families as they
would for their own. The
physicians have worked
in cooperation with the
Venice Regional Medical
Center to build a pro-
gram that has provided
the highest quality of
care, recognized as one
of the Top 100 cardiac
surgery programs in the
nation.
The goal of the
Venice-Ocala Heart
Institute is to draw
upon the expertise of
two specialties car-
diovascular surgery and
cardiovascular anesthe-
sia to deliver the best
quality of cardiothoracic
and vascular care to
the heart, lungs and

shingles also can lead to
death.
"After a person recov-
ers from chickenpox, the
virus stays in the body
in a dormant state," said
Dr. William Heymann,
Florida Department


of Health in Sarasota
County medical execu-
tive director. "For reasons
that are not fully known,
the virus can reactivate
many years later, causing
shingles.
"The likelihood of get-
ting shingles or experi-
encing severe and lasting
complications is greatly
reduced in those who
get the singles vaccine.


Shingles vaccine is only
needed once. You can
get shingles more than
once so it is advisable to
get the vaccine even if
you have had the disease.
Those who have been
vaccinated and then
later get shingles usually
have a much milder
experience."
The vaccine, which is
60 percent effective in


preventing shingles, has
few, if any, side effects.
"Those who receive
the shingles vaccine at
the Florida Department
of Health in Sarasota
County may only be
required to pay their
co-pay if they have
coverage for the vaccine
through Medicare Part
D, said DOH-Sarasota's
Immunization Program


Director Donna Keith.
"Be sure to bring your
card with you so we can
file the appropriate claim
for payment,"
DOH-Sarasota offers
adult vaccinations,
including for shingles,
daily at its two Sarasota
County locations.

Kudzu climbing its way through the South


By AL HEMINGWAY
SUN CORRESPONDENT

It can grow up to a
foot per day and reach
lengths of more than 100
feet, covering trees and
plants, eventually killing
them by choking off the
sunlight that is essential
to their survival.
The above description
sounds like the 1958
Steve McQueen movie
"The Blob," but this no
science fiction it is
real. Its Latin name is
pueraria lobata also
known as kudzu an
invasive vine that already
covers an estimated
2 million acres of forest
land in the South, and
is known to be in 14
counties in Florida.
Kudzu is a climbing,
semi-woody, perennial
vine that is part of the
legume family, according
to the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences
and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Plant
Management Section,
Diameters of the
plant's stems can reach
anywhere from half an
inch to 4 inches, and
there have been reports
of old "stumps" reaching
a foot across in Georgia.
"It is native to
Southeast Asia, China
and Japan, and it was
first introduced to the
Southwest as a forage
crop for cattle," UF/
IFAS Horticultural Agent
Erin Alvarez said. "Now
it is eating most of the
Southwest. It is in the


Panhandle and central
parts of Florida. It is
not terribly common in
Southwest Florida yet,"
although it has been seen
here.
Alvarez said that kudzu
is a noxious weed that
can be seen clearly from
the highway when trav-
eling through Georgia. If
it escapes cultivation, it
can run wild. It can take
over areas, killing any
natural plant species that
inhabit it.
An IFAS fact sheet said
that kudzu has "alter-
nately arranged leaves
(that) are compound
with three broad leaflets
up to 4 inches across.
Leaflets may be entirely
or deeply two- to three-
lobed with hairy mar-
gins. Flowers are half an
inch long, purple, highly
fragrant and borne in
long hanging clusters."
Kudzu spreads in two
ways by runners or
vines, and by seeds.
Each pod contains
one or two seeds that
are encased in a hard
coating that requires
scarification or wear-
ing down the coat by
chemical or mechanical
means, before they can
germinate.
Kudzu also boasts an
enormous root system
that can reach 7 inches
or more in diameter,
more than 6 feet in
length and can weigh
as much as 400 pounds.
From such a huge sys-
tem, 30 vines can emerge
from one root crown.
How can kudzu be

land in the southern United States. In currently is known to
be in 14 Florida counties, mostly in the panhandle and central


parts of the state.

eradicated, or at least
maintained?
The answer, according
to the UF/IFAS website,
is to keep areas closely
mowed, pre-burning that
will minimize the risk of
it spreading, hand dig-
ging and herbicides. For
small areas, herbicides
bought over the counter
containing glyphosate
will generally do the
trick.
For larger patches
of kudzu, a stronger
concentration of glypho-
sate would be required.
Individuals should
contact professionals if
such is the case.
Because kudzu is full of


nutrients, another more
environmentally safe
method is being used
for its eradication: goats
- yes, goats that will
feed on the stuff. Parts of
the South, and Hawaii,
are using goats and other
livestock in an attempt
to rid themselves of the
botanical pest.
Another strategy being
employed is the mega-
copta cribraria, or kudzu
bug. Native to India and
China, it feasts on the
kudzu plant and can
dramatically reduce its
spread.
"The kudzu bug is
related to the stinkbug,"
Alvarez said. "It has been

enjoying some success in
reducing its growth."
Alvarez said that if
caught early, kudzu can
be eliminated.
"It grows very fast," she
said. "In fact, the joke
in Georgia is just to sit


around and watch the
kudzu grow."

Mote: Experts must be paid to help with Springs


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Mote Marine
Laboratory represen-
tatives say they are
interested in providing
the city of North Port and
Sarasota County scientif-
ic information regarding
Warm Mineral Springs
Day Spa, but only if
funding is available.
The city and county
jointly own the Springs,
which has been closed to
the public since June 30.
The majority of
the City Commission
wants studies on the
hydrology (movement,
distribution and quality
of water) and condition
of the Springs sinkhole
to help them make
decisions on what can
be done on the foot-
print of the day spa, as
well as on other areas


PHILLIPS

"We enjoyed his com-
pany," Art said. "(Phillips)
gave all the credit to the
SEALs."
Art Nicholas, now 90, is
a charter member of the
Navy SEALs Museum. He
was not a SEAL, but was
one of the precursors to
the SEALs a member
of the Navy's Scouts &
Raiders duringWorld
War II, and what were then
called "frogmen." Phillips
asked Nicholas and other
Scouts & Raiders to join
them for dinner.
During the Normandy
Invasion, Nicholas was
attached to a Canadian
unit and disarmed mines
offshore of what was
dubbed Gold Beach.
"The survival gear that
we had were just belts
around our bellies with two
CO2 cartridges," he said.
Nicholas also served on


of the 81-acre property.
City Manager Jonathan
Lewis said those stud-
ies will be costly and
time-consuming.
In the summer,
commissioners toured
Mote lab in Sarasota
and learned about its
seven marine research
centers, aquarium and
an Education Division
specializing in public
programs for all ages.
During a recent meet-
ing, City Commissioner
Cheryl Cook told the
board she was concerned
the city hasn't heard if
Mote was interested in
helping with the Springs.
Cook said Mote was
knowledgeable and could
provide much-needed
information to the city
regarding the spa.
"Without Mote Marine,
we lose international
recognition," Cook told

a 36-foot LST landing craft
in North Africa. He served
on a landing craft in the
ill-fated Operation Tiger, a
disastrous dress rehearsal
for the D-Day invasion.
Nicholas said troops
were attacked by German
E-boats, similar to the U.S.
Navy's PT boats inWWII.
He recalled the carnage
resulting in 749 soldiers'
deaths.
"When they started
shooting, we didn't know
it was real until we start-
ed seeing the ships going
down and everyone going
crazy," Nicholas said. The
fiasco was kept top secret
for 40 years. "(General
Dwight D. Eisenhower)
issued an ultimatum that
(Operation Tiger) never
happened, and if anyone
discussed it, they would
be subject to a court
martial."
When asked how he
survived, he said his land-
ing craft wasn't attacked.
The Navy SEALs
Museum is located in Fort


fellow commissioners.
When contacted by the
Sun, Mote officials said
they are not planning
on submitting a bid
for either the short- or
long-term operation of
the Springs.
"Guiding or assuming
the management of
Warm Mineral Springs
- which is primarily a
spa would be con-
trary to our mission and
outside the scope of
Mote Marine Laboratory

Mote spokeswoman
Hayley Rutger. "Mote
officials explained
during late summer
meetings with city and
county officials that the
organization's core goals
are to perform diverse
scientific research that
supports the health and
sustainability of marine
natural resources,


biodiversity and habi-
tats, while also sharing
that information with
the public through Mote
education and outreach
programs."
Cook is considering
asking commissioners
to create a fact-finding
committee to do research
on the Springs, including
potential data collection,
studies, etc.
Cook could ask if a
Mote scientist or other
representative would be
willing to be on this com-
mittee. However, it seems
Mote researchers would
want to be compensated
for their time.
"As a nonprofit,
independent and inter-
nationally recognized
science institution,

has a long history of
service to Southwest

projects that are con-
sistent with our marine
research and outreach
mission," Rutger said.
"We'd be happy to have
a Mote scientist con-
tribute their expertise to
questions about Warm
Mineral Springs, pro-
vided that any contri-
butions from Mote are
supported by funding
from the state, county
and/or city.
"In particular, Mote
scientists have expertise
regarding the endan-
gered manatees that use
the lower creek associ-
ated with Warm Mineral
Springs, and Mote
scientists have technical
diving skills, experience
with underwater sink-
holes and caves and
expertise in monitoring
the condition and poten-
tial connectivity of such
systems."


Mote officials say they
can give the city advice
concerning studies that
should be done at the
site.
"Any advice Mote
provides would depend
on the specific questions
asked by the local mu-
nicipalities, and upon the
availability of funding to
investigate those ques-
tions," Rutger said.
Commissioner Jim
Blucher said he under-
stands scientists want to
be paid for their time.
"We already received
Mote's feedback from
our staff," he said. "Mote
doesn't have any money
to invest in the Springs,
but will help if we pay
them. I think we have
to come up with a plan
before we can ask for
anything else."

Venice Theatre offers perfectly fun show


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Those who have been
in a relationship, are
in a relationship or are
considering a relation-
ship should find some-
thing to "relate" to in
Venice Theatre's Cabaret
production of "I Love
You, You're Perfect, Now
Change."
Some say love is better
the second time around.
So is this production,
which features Venice
Theatre veterans
Chris Caswell, Bobbi
Eschenbach and Chris

a parade ground. These
days, that space is known
as Centennial Park. The
lawn has been replaced
by a parking lot, gazebo
and interactive children's
fountain.
Although not totally
immune to the Great
Depression, the gener-
ally wealthier parents of
private school students
were less affected by
the U.S. economy in the
1930s. The wealthy con-
tinued to frequent such
resorts as St. Petersburg's
elegant Hotel Vinoy,
which reportedly never
lost a guest.
KMI continued to
maintain a second
campus throughout
those years and right up
until 1970 when anti-war
fervor in the country
dealt a death blow to
many such schools.
With houses renting
for as little as $5 a
month in 1932 Venice,
the arrival of the first
170 students plus the
entire faculty and staff
were a welcome sight,
nearly doubling the city's
population overnight
- at least for the winter
season.
Tuition for the nine-
month school term,
including the train ride
to Florida and uniforms,


Caswell with Larry
Alexander, a member
of Actor's Equity and
veteran of Broadway,
off-Broadway, television
and more.
The same foursome
was featured in Venice
Theatre's first production
of this fun show a few
years back, although not
as many years ago as one
would think, judging by
the program photos.
Directed by Steven
Flaa with musical direc-
tion by Bobby Brader,

still more fun is pro-
vided by pianist Jimmy

was $950.
The first train to Venice
left Kentucky's Military
park Station on Jan. 4,
1933. Forty hours later, it
arrived at the Seaboard
Air Line Railway station
in Venice, the same sta-
tion that would welcome
The Greatest Show on
Earth to its new winter
quarters in 1960.
More than 1,000
people met the train.
Their arrival proved to
be an economic turning
point for Venice and, to
some extent, the region.
Signs welcoming the KMI
cadets were displayed in
neighboring towns and
even in Tampa.
On Jan. 7, a reception
was held to greet KMI
staff and students. Venice
residents offered a tour
of Venice for the cadets.
Many parents also
came to visit during the
winter. Some purchased
winter homes in the
city.
Student enrollment
increased by an addition-
al 100 students within
four years.

KMI's Venice
campus
The HotelVenice annex
building was the school's
infirmary. The dining
room was in the Hotel
Venice (today known as
The Summit Assisted
Living Facility) as were
offices and additional


Roberts and flutist Cathy
Baudrit-Noeth.
Consider that the first
scene is "Cantata For
a First Date," featuring
the four actors who
arrive on the scene
dressed as monks, peel
down to their undies
and then get dressed
for the infamous "First
Date," which, to save
time, becomes a first,
second, third and
eventually multiyear
relationship condensed
into one short evening.
You will have to see for
yourself.
Quick changes of the

accommodations for
KMI personnel.
Included in the initial
seven-year lease was a
bathhouse on the Gulf
of Mexico. Public tennis
courts and a golf course
plus the city's climate
helped seal the deal. The
Orange Blossom Garage
and another building
that later became
Venice Theatre became
the KMI's armory and
gymnasium.
According to a student
handbook from the
1930s, several places
were off-limits to stu-
dents: kitchen, dining
room (except during
meals), the guard house
(except for guards),
unoccupied cadet rooms,
second and third floors
of the HotelVenice, the
infirmary (unless con-
fined there) and school
offices (except for official
business).
When school dances
were held (usually at the
gymnasium), cadets had
to give the girl's name
first to the school office,
from which an invitation
would be sent to the
young lady. She, in turn,
was required to show the
invitation at the door
prior to entering the
dance.
Cadets and their dates
were forbidden from
entering an automobile
at any time during the
dance or during inter-
mission. Young ladies


set and the costumes
speed the show along its
riotous path.
"There's a serious
single man drought,"
laments Eschenbach. "I
used to have standards."
The scene switches to
the movie house, where
Alexander bemoans the
tear-jerk film selected
by Kollar who sits there
wrapped up in popcorn
and cola and film while
he grumbles with body
English and words
until turning into a "tear
jerk."
Scene by scene and
song by song, the

who broke any of the
rules would be banned
from the campus for the
remainder of the school
year and the cadets
involved would not be
allowed at any other
dances that year.
They would be
"confined to quarters
immediately following
Vesper Services until
dinner formation for four
consecutive Sundays."
Parents often would be
present on dance week-
ends. If so, they would be
asked to join their cadet
son in meeting those
in the receiving line.
Visiting parents were
encouraged to stay at the
ParkView Hotel, a virtual
twin of the Hotel Venice.
It was demolished when
the present post office
was built.
During World War II,
KMI cadets had additional
rules.
"If in uniform and we
passed an Army officer,
we were required to
salute, no matter where
we were," 1948 graduate
Ken Harper said. "We
were off on Monday
rather than Saturday.
We would go to the
theater on Monday. It
was the only free day
we had. They wouldn't
let us go to town on
Saturday because of the
rivalry between schools
and we were always in
uniform (therefore more
conspicuous).


comedy's sketches and
songs follow in rapid
fire succession as topics
bounce form dating
to weddings, babies,
separations, longtime
marriages, short-term
affairs and changes.
Flaa's choreography
even includes a car with
Mom (Eschenbach) and
Dad (Alexander) up front
and kiddies (Caswell and
Kollar) in back. Seated
on secretarial chairs,
they hold the "car"
together as it moves
around the stage and
then separate for what
seems to be a free-for-all

"The discipline at KMI
stood me in good stead.
It was a great school."
Proud of his KMI days,
Harper was one of the
"Gang of Three" who
led the charge to create
the KMI documentary.
The other two were Bill
Vermilion of the class of
1963 and Roger Cole of
the Class of 1958.
"One of them was on
the board of Kentucky's
public television station
(KET) and we all live
up here in Kentucky,"
Harper said. "I suggested
that we try to get KET to
do a documentary, and
they were interested.
They (KET) gave us
direction and said we
would need to get a
production company.
We raised a little over
$100,000 -99 percent
from alums."
The documentary
had its world premier
last month at the Palace
Theatre in Louisville.
"Our northern
Kentucky campus was
beautiful but confined,"
Harper said. In Venice
there was very little
confinement."
Because of the doc-
umentary, the Venice
Archives has more KMI
items. Marty McGowen,
class of 1965, said he
donated practically every
bit of his memorabilia to
the archives.
"I was at the reunion
in August and got a taste


as they weave in and
out of each other's paths
- at speed without
a single tap let alone a
collision.
"I Love You, You're
Perfect, Now Change"
continues in the
Pinkerton Theatre at
Venice Theatre, 140 W
Tampa Ave., through
Nov. 24. Performances
are Tuesday-Saturday
at 8 p.m. and Sunday
at 2 p.m. For tickets,

of the documentary,"
McGowen said. "It was
very professionally done.
"I talked to a lot of
classmates and school
mates. The theme of the
school is what it was
really all about. We had
an honor system. We
had a football team in
Kentucky and a swim
team and basketball
team in Venice. We
graduated with rank into
the army.
"We were at the tail
end of history."
Military schools were
a Southern tradition.
Few, including KMI,
were able to survive the
anti-war sentiments of
the Vietnam era. KMI va-
cated its Venice campus
in 1970 and closed the
following year, after 126
years. A list onWikipedia
shows fewer than 40
such private preparatory
schools in the U.S. today.
Admiral Farragut is the
only remaining private
Florida-based military
school. Sarasota Military
Academy is a public
military school chartered
in 2002 by the Sarasota
School Board. There is
another public military
school in Hollywood,
according to information
atWikipedia.

This group raises funds with style


FRAN VALENCIC


"We've collected more
than 1,000 pajamas and
books in five years and
that makes me proud,"
said Ann Van Cott. The
fifth annual Girl's Night
Out fashion show at
the Venice Yacht Club
brought nearly 200
people together with
pajamas and books for
children.
It seems pretty basic
that children should have
a new pair of pj's and a
book for a bedtime story.
Members of the Venice
Yacht Club and friends
started the project five


years ago. They donate
the items to SPARCC
and the Safe Children's
Coalition who distribute
things where there is a
need.
The fashion show and
dinner makes donating
even more fun as it gives
everyone a chance for a lit-
tle party time. Three cheers
and a great big thank you
to everyone involved in
this nice project.

With a song in
their hearts
It's a lovely day
when members of the
Harmony Chorus get
together. Recently they
held a fashion show to
raise funds for their local
projects, especially a
scholarship for a student
wanting to pursue a
music career.
A'Tu provided the
fashions and a boutique
before the show. It was
clear ladies like to shop.


The jewelry table was
especially popular.
To brighten the season,
plan to attend the
Harmony Chorus benefit
concert at Naar Hall on
Shamrock Blvd. Nov. 17
at 3 pm. $10 tickets will
be available at the door.

Accessorize
Fashionable women
know you can never have
too much jewelry. This
weekend, the Venice Art
Center holds its annual
sale featuring original
jewelry by local artists.
The event runs from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and
admission is free.
While at the Center,
enjoy the current show.

One of our best
The special person
of this week is Heidi
Termuehlen. For many
years, this nice lady
worked alongside her
longtime friend, Ruth


Kelly, at San Marco
Boutique. She loves
helping people shop and
finding exactly the right
outfit and embellishments
for any special occasion.
Since Ruth passed,
Heidi continues as a loyal
friend. She provides the
same wonderful service
at the store greeting
people and helping them
shop. Heidi even sat
outside on Halloween
and passed out candy.
"Halloween is something
Ruth loved and passing
out the candy," Heidi
said. "I wanted to carry
on the tradition for her."
Heidi Termuehlen is
one of the women who
make Venice a great place
to live.

November 13 19, 2013 EINICIV Let's Go!


We were the losers, kind of


IfyouTraen-t had the opportunity to fish
a Flatsmaster's tournament, I highly suggest
you put it on your list of things to do.
Every year, I usually try to fish two, the
couples and the ladies tournament. This past
weekend, the Reel Ladies fishing tourna-
ment was held out of Punta Gorda and they
couldn't have picked a rougher day on the
water, unless Hurricane Charley was blowing
through. Okay, it wasn't that bad, but you get
the point. Our mission: five lady fish and one
big ol'redfish.


After hours of scavenging the harbor, we
headed to weigh in with our lady fish but the
redfish must have washed out to sea with
the tide, or they just didn't like the flavor of
our bait. Our lady fish didn't weigh much,
and we debating whether or not we were
even going to weigh them in when we got to
the dock knowing we definitely didn't have
enough pounds to win. We decided, why not
weigh them in and to the scale we went. A
whopping 2.53 pounds later, we made our
way into last place, (two teams didn't weigh


in so technically we had more than them,
and that made me feel better). However,
what really made me feel better is when we
found out last place gets a prize! In order
to keep everyone interested, they offer a
prize to the last place team so you don't get
discouraged if you're not catching much.
Moral of the story, fish a tournament. Not
only are they fun, but even if you lose, you
win!
See www.flatsmasters.com for informa-
tion on fishing tournaments.


This is a week to reckon with


Last night I was at Venice Theatre for the
opening of"Hairspray," that delightful piece
about the early days of rock'n'roll and a
television dance show that captured the
imagination of Baltimore teens, including a
chubby high schooler named Tracy Turn-
blad. The whole thing reminds me of the
old American Bandstand dance party show
aired live for many years form Philadelphia
and starred Dick Clark.
This variation on the theme is a musical
show based on a film and now it is on the
main stage at Venice Theatre through
Dec. 8. Call 941-488-1115 orvisit:
VeniceStage.com.
Today through Nov. 18, Sarasota is being


transformed into one giant collage of color
on city streets for the annual Sarasota Chalk
Festival. It is kind of eerie driving on the
street after the festival, especially when
there is a picture that looks like a hole in
the middle of the street.
Also in Sarasota,"Die Fledermaus"
continues at the Sarasota Opera House
and Friday night is the grand opening of
the Asolo Repertory Company season with
"Showboat." I have met some of the cast
and heard some of the songs and expect to
be totally wowed! For tickets, call 941-351 -
8000 or visit: Asolo.org.
Sunday evening, Venice Theatre will
be filled with folks associated with the


old Kentucky Military Institute as well as
anyone interested in the history of Venice,
which one could say was saved by the
military school. In 1929, there were 4,000
residents in Venice. As the Great Depression
began and Florida's land boom ended, the
city's population plummeted to 400. When
the KMI moved its students body and staff
to Venice right after Christmas in 1932, it
nearly doubled the city's population, liter-
ally saving the city and without ever firing a
shot. KMI kept its winter quarters in Venice
until 1970. "Character makes the Man;'a
documentary about KMI will be shown at
8 p.m. Sunday at the theater. For tickets,
call 941-488-1115.

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

For Eric Lagopoulous, the restaurant busi-
ness is truly a family affair.
His parents, Christine and Tom, opened up
the Waterfront Restaurant in Sarasota more
than 30 years ago. Then, about 13 years ago,
its companion restaurant, the Waterfrontoo
Grille and Steak House, debuted in Nokomis.
So you could say that running the newer
restaurant was in the cards for Eric.
"My parents first had a restaurant on
Longboat Key in 1979, called The Schooner,";'
Lagopoulous said. "Shortly after it closed, they
opened the Waterfront:'
The Sarasota restaurant enjoys a very loyal
local following, as does the newer location in
Osprey. Part of the reason is that both spots
are known for serving consistently great steaks
in an area without many true steakhouses.
"We are a seafood and steak house;' Lagop-
oulos said of the Waterfrontoo. "Our two most
popular things are our coconut shrimp and our
prime rib, which we slow-cook all night'
The family also pays tribute to its heritage
by including a bit of Greek flair on their menu.
In the starters section, you can find saganaki,
which is Greek cheese flamed with brandy, and
Tom's Greek salad is one of the best in town.
There is also a traditional Gyro sandwich on
the menu and, on occasion, rack of lamb.
A comfortable, casual atmosphere makes
the Waterfrontoo a great spot for gatherings
of all kinds and sizes. The restaurant seats
about 250, and there is a back room, where
Lagopoulos says he just hosted a wedding
party of 150 people.
But besides the quality of the food, which
includes a nice selection of fresh, grilled fish,
the restaurant has a beautiful waterfront loca-
tion, and plenty of ways you can both enjoy
the view and access the location.
"We have some great new docks all around
the building, so you can get here from Marker
20 and pull your boat right up,";' Lagopo-
ulos said. "And we also have lots of outside


seating."
A patio in the back provides the perfect
place to watch the sun set over Casey Key, and
the inside bar has large windows that overlook
the water, as well.
Except for certain dates, Waterfrontoo is
only open for dinner, but there are specials
every day. Early Bird deals are from 4 to 5:30
p.m., Happy Hour is every night from 4to 6
p.m., and you don't have to be in the bar to
take advantage of that -you can also get
those specials in the dining room. Tuesday is
BBQ Ribs night, when ribs are offered at the
special price of $13.
Lagopoulos said that the family has a very
busy day coming up this month.
"We are open at noon on Thanksgiving Day
to do a traditional Thanksgiving dinner,";' he
said. "It's one of the top five busiest nights of
the year for us.'
He said there are a lot of snowbirds who
are away from their families and who don't
want to cook that big-event meal, but many
of the folks who come into the restaurant on
Thanksgiving are locals. If your home consists
of one or two people, it's sometimes not even
worth the trouble of cooking all that food. At
the restaurant, they know that they can get
all their traditional holiday meal favorites,
without having to take care of the preparation
-orthe cleanup.
Lagopoulos says, that having grown up here
in the business, he understands the value of
having that foundation of the locals' support,
not only during the holidays, but all year long.
"What makes this place special is the family
atmosphere;' he said. "When you come in
here one time, the bartender or server knows
your name. We're really fortunate to have the
community support we've had."
WaterfronToo Grille and Steak House is at
2205 North Tamiami Trail in Nokomis, and is
open Tuesday through Thursday, from 4 to
9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, from 4 to
10 p.m. For more information, visit the
Facebook page or the website at www.water-
frontoo.com, or call 941-918-4591.

Pancake brunch's 41st season


Provided by EUMC

Saturday, Nov. 16 from 7:30-11:30 a.m., the
Men's Fellowship group kicks off the 41st season
for its ever-popular"granddaddy of all" pancake
brunches in the Englewood United Methodist
Church Fellowship Hall, 700 E. Dearborn. The
brunches will run every otherweek through
April 5.
According to the outgoing brunch chairman,
Peter Patrick,"We call our brunch the"grand-
daddy"because itwasa first that others
here and even up north have picked up on.
Men as well as women are encouraged to be
brunch volunteerworkers fora fun, rewarding
experience. Last yearwe served 26,000 all-you-
can-eat pancakes that resulted in a $27,862
total awarded to 26 local students for college
attendance."
A $5 ticket ($3 for children) buys unlimited
pancakes, orange juice, and a bottomless cup
of coffee or tea. This year biscuits and sausage
gravy have been added to the egg and sausage,
or quiche and fruit side options that are
included in the price.
Over 10,000 tickets have been sold annually
for these unique Saturday morning experiences.
Because the men have honed the service "down
to a science/the cheerful line that forms moves
unusually fast.
Live music fills the air. Shoppers find bargains
at the boutique of crafts made by the Women's
Creative Workshop. The men help stock up
cabinets with fresh nuts, grapefruit and honey
sales.

Charlotte County Homeless Coalition


This year, the church's farmers market will
provide more shopping treats as it runs from
9 a.m. -1 p.m. on the same days as the
brunches. Fresh and organic produce and other
foods, art, crafts,jewelry, flowers, plants and
other special items are available there. The
vendor fees charged are all donated to missions
supported by the church.
The Men's Fellowship is a nondenomination
group that meets for its prayer breakfast every
Monday morning during "season."The men
have fellowship at 7:30 a.m., a hearty breakfast
at 8 a.m. and enjoy a stimulating 30-minute
program until 9 a.m. Men in the community
of all ages are encouraged to come share this
upbeat experience.
The men also implement a paperand
aluminum recycling project. The public is
encouraged to drop off newspapers and scrap
aluminum at the collection bins just off the
church parking lot next to the Helping Hand
building.
Proceeds from Men's Fellowship Pancake
Brunch and other service projects help fuel
Englewood United Methodist Church's mission
as a "servant church"to the local community. In
addition to the scholarships provided, annual
direct gifts are made to support such organiza-
tions as the Florida United Methodist Children's
Home, Englewood Helping Hand and Meals on
Wheels.

MOVIES GO


Jack Ass Presents: Bad Grandpa
I Runtime: 1 hr. 32 min. I Rated
R for strong crude and sexual
content throughout, language,
some graphic nudity and brief
drug use.
Eighty-six-year-old Irving Zisman is on a
journey across America with the most unlikely
companion, his 8-year-old Grandson Billy in
"Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa:"This October,
the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman
(Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll)
will take movie audiences along for the most
insane hidden camera road trip ever captured
on camera. Along the way Irving will intro-
duce the young and impressionable Billy to
people, places and situations that give new
meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will
encounter male strippers, disgruntled child
beauty pageant contestants (and their equally
disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners,
biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsus-
pecting citizens.
Escape Plan I Runtime: 1 hr.
56 min. I Rated R for violence and
language throughout.
Action superstars Sylvester Stallone and
Arnold Schwarzenegger team up in the
action-thriller"Escape Plan:"Ray Breslin
(Stallone), the world's foremost authority on
structural security, agrees to take on one last
job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech
facility called"The Tomb." But when he is
wrongly imprisoned, he must recruit fellow
inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to
help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to
escape from the most protected and fortified
prison ever built
Captain Phillips I Runtime:
2 hrs. 13 min. I Rated PG-1 3 for
sustained intense sequences
of menace, some violence with
bloody images, and for substance
use.
Captain Phillips is a multilayered exam-
ination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S.
containership Maersk Alabama by a crew of
Somali pirates. It is through director Paul
Greengrass'distinctive lens simultaneously
a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex
portrait of the myriad effects of globalization.
The film focuses on the relationship between


the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain
Richard Phillips (two-time Academy Award-
winnerTom Hanks), and the Somali pirate
captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes
him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an
unstoppable collision course when Muse and
his crew target Phillips'unarmed ship; in the
ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali
coast, both men will find themselves at the
mercy of forces beyond their control.
Gravity I Runtime: not stated. I
Rated PG-1 3 for intense perilous
sequences, some disturbing
images and brief strong language.
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a
medical engineer on her first shuttle mission.
Her commander is veteran astronaut Matt
Kowalsky (George Clooney), helming his last
flight before retirement. Then, on a routine
space walk, disaster strikes the shuttle is
destroyed, leaving Ryan and Matt stranded
in deep space with no link to Earth and no
hope of rescue. As their fear turns to panic,
they realize that the only way home may be to
venture further into space.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meat-
balls 2 1 Runtime: 1 hr. 35 min. I
Rated PG for mild rude humor.
"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2"
picks up where Sony Pictures Animation's
mouth-watering comedy left off. Inventor Flint
Lockwood thought he saved the world when
he destroyed his most infamous invention a
machine that turned water into food causing
cheeseburger rain and spaghetti
tornadoes.

Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and
Kevin Kline are big-name actors with an amazing combined
resume of successful and diverse films. Their characters in "Last
Vegas,"a kind of geriatric friendship comedy, are amiable and
watchable. Never mind the predictability it's all about the
chemistry of the buddy mix.
Four lifelong friends meet in Las Vegas for a bachelor party
for Billy (Michael Douglas), the one who never settled down.
In fact, he is marrying a girl who is nearly 40 years his junior.
Paddy (Robert De Niro) is the grumpy widower who has long-
standing issues with Billy. Archie (Morgan Freeman) has health
issues and an overprotective son. Sam (Kevin Kline) is the one
living in Florida, depressed about being old and getting older.
But when these characters assemble to party, their charisma
lights up the strip.
Add to this mix Diana, played by Mary Steenburgen. She
looks and acts great in her take of an aging lounge singer living
out her dream. Of course, the friends are smitten by her as well
as with all of the jiggly Vegas girls. In theirweekend blast, they
dance, drink,judge a bikini contest, get in trouble and even
throw their own exorbitant party. There are plenty of senior
jokes about aches and pains, medicines, Viagra and (naturally)
senior moments. But"Last Vegas" is never crude or obnoxious;
it's more like good, clean fun.
As a vehicle for these actors to be witty, it works surprisingly
well. In fact, I enjoyed it more than the 2007 film' "Wild Hogs:'
which was amusing for many of the same reasons. In "Last
Vegas,"' Freeman is funny, especially in his dancing scene, and
talented Kevin Kline is playful in his role. De Niro and Douglas,
because of the friction with their characters, have some
dramatic exchanges to go with their comedy. Put it all together
and it's a movie that says a lot about the value of maintaining
friendships throughout life. Realizing that, it's never a bad idea
to do some retro tracking of childhood friends on Facebook.
"Last Vegas" is not a great comedy but it's entertaining
throughout. It's not hilarious but it's witty. And it's certainly
not the last stand for this cast of very talented older actors.

*%, II I 'I I

For most children of any age, there is no
greater thrill than going to a circus.
From the smell of popcorn and peanuts to the
sound of the circus music to the sparkly costumes
of the performers, everything is amplified when
you're underthat big topL Chris Connors is a
ringmaster with the Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars,
which is pulling into Port Charlotte on Nov. 20. He
says that he fell in love with the circus when he
was just a small boy.
"My parents were members of the Circus Fans
of America (an organization founded in 1926 to
promote and preserve the circus as an institu-
tion,)" he said. "When I was a baby, I had my
bottle of milk given to me in Clown Alley from my
ringmaster predecessor, Jimmy James:'
Collins thought he wanted to grow up to be a
clown like James was at that time. But when he
began to talk about it, James always told him to
put school first. So he stayed in school, gradu-
ating college with degrees in Business Marketing
and Broadcasting and Communications. But he
clowned on the side, even as he ran through a
series of jobs after graduation.
"I have had many jobs, but less than 20 years
ago, that's when my whole life changed:' he said.
"I was asked to join a circus full time, but at the
time, I thought it would only be fora year.":'
Two decades later, he is a ringmaster and
loving every minute of it. He talked about some
of the exciting acts that are included in this year's
show.

"You see a guy get shot out of a cannon and
he fires right overyour head:' Connors said. "Even
if you're in General Admission, you have the
best position forthe high wire act, because they
perform right over your head:'"
Xan Kaplan is a lovely aerialist, and performs
daring acts high above the ground with silks,
hammocks and a lira, which is a large ring. She's
young, but has been with Cole Bros. forabout five
years. She said that many of the circus performers
haven't always been involved with the same act
- they've perfected a few more before that.
"I used to do motorcycle stunts:' she said. "A lot
of the people here show up doing a different act,
but if you like to try new things, the circus is the
place to learn. As long as you don't let go, you can
doanything."
By "letting go:' she was referring to literally
letting go as in the trapeze bar. Kaplan does
say she wants to stick with aerial work fora
while, though.
"People seem to really like watching it
because they appreciate that it's artistic and
athletic:' she said. "I like that it's kind of like a
dance that takes place 30 feet above the ground:
If Kaplan feels the same way as Collins, she
may find that she will have a home in the circus
for quite a long time. Cole Bros. is the biggest
circus in the world that's still under a big top,
which Kaplan said makes it even more special.
"It's a little more magical when you come
in underthe big top," he said. "We're a very
old-school type of show, and we're all out here
to do one thing that's to entertain kids of all
ages."

GO THE ARTS


By KIM COOL
Ii ~I 11 II I,1 I

This evening is the first preview of Asolo Rep's
season opener, "Showboat."
Considered America's first musical, "Show-
boat"'was based on the Edna Ferber book of
the same name. Music was by Jerome Kern
and the musical's book and lyrics were by Oscar
Hammerstein II. The original 1927 production
had 75 actors and an orchestra of 30 musicians
according to Asolo Rep's artistic director Michael
Donald Edwards.
In the intervening years, three versions have
received licenses and the approval of the Kern
and Hammerstein heirs who keep a careful
watch on one of their most important treasures.
This latest incarnation of the third and


smallest version of the show features 25actors
in the cast and an orchestra of eight.
Unchanged is the story. Not only is the boat
an emblem of the country but all the actors
needed to perform the show represent a
cross-section of the country, Edwards said in a
discussion about the importance of this show's
story and creation to the Asolo's American
Character Project.
The project, which began last year with the
musical, "1776, is a five-year study of what
makes America unique.
It also is a show that like America has
undergone many changes.
"It tends to reflect the time in which it is
performed:'," Edwards said.
The cast was assembled from across the
country, with some coming from New York


and Chicago as well as Florida. Members
were assembled by director Rob Ruggiero
who directed"Ella"at the Asolo in 2007, has
done shows on Broadway and in many of the
country's top regional theaters. The smallest
member of the cast is Lilly Mae Stewart who
portrayed Molly in the Players'2012 production
of "Annie:'"
"I didn't know'Showboat.' I'll study the mate-
rial:'the directorsaid when first approached by
Edwards. "In our business, family is important.
Tis is a story about a show business family.
The family exists for the theater and includes
different races and different classes.":'
The major challenges were to perform it
in such a small space at the Mertz, where the
Asolo Rep performs most of its show. The Asolo
cast numbers 25 which is large for present-day
theatrical productions but small for this partic-
ular show. There are seven African-Americans in
the cast.
Once he got into the show, Ruggiero made
a change so significant it had to be approved
by the Hammerstein Estate. Culled from the
original book, the new 10-minute segment had
to be presented before Hammerstein's daughter
and Ferber's niece, Ruggiero said.
Those who saw the Asolo's previous produc-
tion of"Showboat"will recognize the costumes
and set but should notice several major changes
made by the director and choreographer Noah
Racey who also starred in last season' "Noah
Racey's Pulse:'"
To deal with the physical limitations of the
stage space in the Mertz, Ruggiero said the
audience becomes the people at the Show-


boat's levee and the theater becomes the actual
Showboat. To accomplish this, cast members
will actually perform from the balcony as well
as from the theater's main floor.
"These were not obstacles but challenges:'
Ruggiero said. "Your imagination does
wonderful things.":'
Racey too had challenges. He did not want to
stop the show for a dance number but to fit the
dance numbers seamlessly into the show.
"I'm a choreographer but mostly I'm a
story-teller'," he said. "Before 'Showboat' people
in theater seemed to work in three different
rooms singing, dancing and scene work.
'Showboat' is the first time the people in those
rooms started talking to each other.
"It is a joy to play in Rob's world.":'
While Ruggiero was new to the show,
musical director Wade Russo was described by
Ruggiero as a "Showboat geek.":'
"It was the first show that showed how the
African American culture began to influence the
white culture,7 Russo said.
"At times when theaters are cutting corners,
it takes a brave man to produce a work like this:',"
Ruggiero said about Edwards and his company.
"Showboat" opens the 55th season of
the Asolo Rep. Special programs planned in
conjunction with the production include'Care-
fully Taught,":'a cabaret featuring Hammerstein
songs at 7 p.m. Nov. 24 and Family Day gives
families the opportunity to purchase four (two
adults and two children) tickets for $50, which
includes pre-show activities,
Fortickets to these or the show itself, call
941-351-8000 or visit: Asolo.org.

'Hairspray' opens at


Venice Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDrrITOR

"Hairspray"takes me back to my elemen-
tary school days and the old American
Bandstand show featuring Dick Clark.
"Hairspray/'a Tony Award-winning
Broadway musical based on a Hollywood
film is about a similar show, the Corny
Collins show in Baltimore. The heroine
is a chubby high school girl named Tracy
Turnblad who hopes to dance her way into
a place on the television show.
When her dream comes true, so do some
other opportunities such as replacing the
former female dancing star, winning the
affections of the teen heartthrob and
integrating a television network. The story
is set in the'60s and is actually based on
a Baltimore show rather than the old Dick
Clark show, but since the Baltimore show


was probably based on the Philadelphia
show, many will make that connection
instead.
Brad Wages directs with local musical
theater performer Alyssa Goudy as Tracy.
Tim Fitzgerald, in drag, portrays Tracy's
mother Edna Turnblad. John Travolta
played the role in the movie following the
Broadway show which followed the first
film. Syreeta Banks portrays Motormouth
Mabel.
"Hairspray" opened yesterday at Venice
Theatre where it will play through Dec. 8,
with evening performances at 8 p.m. Tues-
day-Saturday and matinees on Sunday at
2 p.m. The theater is at 140 W. Venice Ave.,
on the island in downtown Venice. Tickets
are $13-$15 for students and $25-$28 for
adults. Call the box office at 941-488-1115

This museum can make you smile


EC. ,November 13-19,2013


By KIM COOL

Open once again for the season,
Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy Inc. is
designed to make visitors happy.
One day in July, while spotting a
museum guard who seemed to be
asleep within the entry, I had to stop
and see what was in this cheerful pink
and marshmallow white building. There
was a closed sign but, spotting someone
in addition to the sleeping guard, I
knocked on the window and showed my
press credentials. Both the museum's
founder Marietta Lee and an associate
were present. They were working on the


exhibit for the museum's 2013-2014
season which began Oct. 24.
Lee's transformation from nurse
and volunteer paramedic to artist/
museum founder is detailed on the
museum's website. The short story is
that she learned from a tragedy that
art could make her happy and sharing
it with others could probably make
others happy too. She went back to
school at 32, earned a BA from Eastern
Kentucky University and then a BFA from
the Ringling College of Art & Design.
Working as an artist and enjoying the
creation as well as the creations of
others, she began to form the idea for
the museum.


Put on hold for a decade as she cared
for aging parents, the museum was
finally created in Connecticut in 2006,
although it would be a museum without
a home until 2010. In the interim, the
part-time resident became a full-
time resident, found and remodeled
a building and moved all the museum
assets and paperwork to Florida.
The result is that charming and appro-
priately whimsical building one passes
while heading north on North Tamiami
Trail from downtown Sarasota to the
much larger Ringling Museum or to see
a performance of the Asolo Repertory
Company. Like the outdoor art shows
that inspired Lee, the museum displays,
indoors and outdoors, an enchanting
collection of what many would consider
the happier art work found at such
shows the "whimsical" items. Most of
the art was created in the United States,
including the marvelous giant metal
flamingos but there also is


work in the collection from Asia, Canada
and South America.
Never forget that "guard" who may
or may not be watching as you check
out the whimsical collection within the
museum. When you head out back to
the sculpture garden, even though "he"
can't see you, refrain from climbing
on the sculptures and the Florida oaks
that offer shade most of the day. Even
the live black bamboo adds a touch of
whimsy. If pigs could fly this is where
you can find them.
The museum is open Thursday, Friday
and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
through May 31. It is closed on Thanks-
giving, Christmas Eve and Christmas,
New Year's Eve and New Year's Day,
Easter and during the summer. Admis-
sion is free. Look for the giant orange
and pink flamingos.
The Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy
is at 2121 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
For information, call 941-364-3399 or
visit: WhimsyMuseum.org.

i,'G!E '.,'. November 13-19,2013


G O LIVE MUSIC


American blues songwriter, singer and
guitarist John Lee Hooker once said, "The
blues tell a story every line of the blues


has a meaning.'
He was right In American culture, the
blues have always been representative of
tough times, a way to put into music, feel-
ings that were buried deep inside. But today,
blues festivals and celebrations of the genre


have become very popular, even though the
songs the musicians are writing are just as
personal.
Some of the brightest stars on the blues
scene will be coming to Venice this month
for the brand new Venice Brews and Blues
Festival, an event that will feature both the
music itself and two things that go very well
with it, food and drink.
"A lot of people really like the blues right
now," Venice MainStreet executive director
Kat Quast said. "We have six performers
coming in that are just through the roof, and
on top of that, we have local vendors galore.":'
The musicians range in age from
16-year-old Mike Imbasciani, from the Char-
lotte area, to 70 year-old blues legend Joey
Gilmore. All of the acts have been carefully
selected to give the best representation
possible of a style of music that means so
much to so many people.
"We have a band coming in from Israel
that is the number one blues band in Israel,"
Quast said. "They're named Ori Naftaly. Steve
Arvey, from the Suncoast Blues Society is
helping me to put this on."
Five out of the six performers are Inter-
national Blues Challenge winners. The total
lineup includes: The Delta Swamp Rats, Mike
Imbasciani, Lauren Mitchell, Ori Naftaly,
Selwyn Birchwood and Joey Gilmore.
Though the music is certainly a big draw,
the other half of the celebration is all about
beverages and accompanying food. Quast
says that she has a stellar list of local food
vendors lined up, including Blu Island Bistro,


Brew Burgers, Cafe Venice, Sharky's and
Tomatillos. The Venice Farmers Market will
also be relocating to the festival site across
theTamiami Trail forthe day.
"I've got locally brewed craft beers and
favorites like Budweiser," she said. "And Cafe
Venice is bringing over some wine, so there
will be some really good ones there'."
Every event that Venice MainStreet
presents helps to serve their mission of
promoting historic downtown Venice, and
this one is no exception. Plus, they usually
donate a portion of their proceeds to a local
cause. This year, they and the Suncoast Blues
Society, which is a big supporter of music
education, will be donating that money to
buy a sousaphone for the Venice High School
music department.
"We had our choice of nonprofits looking
for funding from this festival:' Quast
said. "But since this is about great music
and musicians, we thought it would be
wonderful to buy instruments for our area
schools:'"
Quast said that she anticipates this
turning into a popularannual event for
Venice, and hopes that in the coming years,
it will grow into something even bigger and
better. Afterall, the more money Venice
MainStreet can raise from the event, the
more they can donate to local causes.
"It's all about celebrating this Venice
community and their music and arts
programs:' she said. "Afterall, where would
we be without music? We'd all be singing
the blues'."

Water Music
Because Florida is all about the water, fishing, boating, etc., carrying some related
tunes in your head is recommended. In the late'50Os, Frankie Ford sang "Sea Cruise," Bobby
Darin crooned "Beyond the Sea"and Phil Phillips sang "Sea of Love" (covered well by the
Honeydrippers, an all-star rock band, in 1984).
In the'60s, The Marvelletes sang "Too Many Fish in the Sea"(later covered by Mitch
Ryder& the Detroit Wheels) and Otis Redding scored the soul dclassic"(Sitting'on) the Dock
of the Bay." Boat songs include Every Mother's Son one-hit wonder"Come on Down to my
Boat"and the Beach Boys'"Sloop John B'." The Beatles focused on the underwater tales
"Octopus's Garden"and "Yellow Submarine'" In the'70s, "Ride Captain Ride"was a catchy
hit by Florida band Blues Image and Chicago's Styx'did "Come Sail Away." Christopher Cross
recorded the'80s smooth "Sailing"while Crosby, Stills & Nash provided strong imagery in
"Southern Cross."
Jimmy Buffett's numerous watery tunes include "Son of a Son of a Sailor,""Boat Drinks:',"
"Lovely Cruise,""Fins"and "One Particular Harbor'." Fishermen may enjoy Lamont Dozi-
er's "Fish Ain't Bitin"Badfinger's obscure "Fisherman," Heart's "Barracuda," maybe even
interpretations of"Led Zeppelin's "The Ocean," Spirit's "I Got A Line On You" or B.J. Thomas'
"Hooked on a Feeling."


Last week, this musical trivia question was asked: Of Madonna's seven number one
singles in the'80s, which song held the top position the longest at six weeks?
Answer: "Like a Virgin!' The first reader to get it right was
Will Johnson of Punta Gorda.
This Week's Question: Singer/songwriter Randy Newman has had album success along

The electricity just before the event, the anticipation the children bring, and the peace we feel as adults adds to the spirit of Christmas unlike any event I can think of. While most of us have the challenge of nding a good seat for the festivities and then keeping kids or grandkids in check until that rst boat arrives, there is a group out there that breathes a sigh of relief as they have accomplished yet another parade of boats for us. I speak of the committee that puts this all together. This year seems to be a pivotal one and I wont go on about the group as they do it for the love of the holiday and our community. I will point out that we are having difculty with participation in this years event. In other words, we need boats and lots of them. We know the hassles involved in entering a boat in the parade. We understand it takes time and effort, and yes, sometimes it may feel less than rewarding to enter your craft in this parade. The truth of the matter is for the most part, that is exactly true except for those two hours or so when its showtime and your work is on display. The entire community watches you with admiration and pride and feels the magic of this special time in a setting few communities across the land can duplicate. People cheer, people go back in time, and people stop Boat parade may get canceled, needs more boaters Tim Smolarick SUN FILE PHOTOThe annual holiday boat parade in Venice may get canceled this year if more boaters do not sign up to participate.PARADE | 12 A pilot from Osprey was able to walk away with only minor injuries Monday morning after making an emergency crash landing in Charlotte Harbor. The elderly Osprey man was the sole occupant of a small, lightweight plane when it came down in the water near Alligator Creek Preserve, according to Charlotte County Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Jason Fair. The pilot was able to make his way out of the downed aircraft and sit atop the wreckage. An alert sailor saw the plane coming down and headed for the crash site. I saw it go into the water, said Punta Gorda Isles resident Gerard Fallon, who rescued the pilot. He was manning his 37-foot Bavaria sailboat about a mile away when he noticed something descending toward the water around 11 a.m. I knew it was too big to be a pelican, so I got there as fast as I could, he said. The victim declined to speak to the media. His name was not released by authorities, but a witness referred to him as Phil. He set that thing down just as gentle as he possibly could, Fallon said. But the plane was badly damaged. The plane pretty much belly-opped, Fallon said. The tail was totally demolished. The pilot was worried about his aircraft. He had some minor lacer ations to his face and leg and was kind of shaken up, Fallon said. But he was worried about his plane. Authorities received word of the accident shortly after 11 a.m. Fallon radioed it in.

Among those are transgendered people. Major Jim Lilly, division commander, Courts and Corrections, with the Sheriffs Office, who assisted Knight in making the announcement, told city council members arrests involving transsexual or transgendered individuals are on the increase.

PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FENNELLVeterans Day was commemorated Monday at Patriots Park through a series of speeches, ceremonies and patriotic presentations. One brave soul stood in front of a crowd and explained in horrifying detail exactly what it felt like to be shot at by the enemy when he was just 19 years old. He didnt know at the time if that day would be his last. But Loren Pittman, life member and post commander and chaplain of American Legion Post 159 in Venice, would live to see many, many more days. That was 70 years ago and I recall it just like it was yesterday but I am still here, Pittman said. I am grateful for my life, and I feel very honored to be here today. On Monday at Patriots Park in Venice, hundreds gathered to pay their respects to the men and women who have served sometimes making the ultimate sacrice to protect the freedom of the citizens of America. Observed annually on Nov. 11, Veterans Day coincides with a time when the major hostilities of World War I were formally ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. The National Anthem blared loudly as the Suncoast Wind Ensemble played, and American Legion Post 159 Commander John Farrow welcomed the crowd. This is not a day to be sad, this is a day to stand tall and be proud of ourselves, Farrow said.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A at the South County jail. The Sheriffs Office in Sarasota has developed a tried and true process for making such determinations, hiring a three-person cadre of deputies who work six days a week in the classification section. Detainees come in all types from cross dressers to those in different stages of surgical sex change processes, Lilly said. We do a private interview with the deputy supervisor to determine how they identify themselves, Lilly said. Do they have external genitalia? If they claim to be a male, we have a male corrections officer pat them down to make sure they are what they claim to be. Ultimately, medical staff determine which gender they are. If detainees are female, a female deputy does the pat-down. Deputies admit its not a burgeoning problem. Few statistics are available on how many are housed in the county jail. Theres not that many, Lilly said. We have three that come in pretty consistently. Theyve been in there before. But on any given day, we may get someone transported from another jail. It becomes a tough one. Obviously we try not to discriminate based on their gender. We dont want to take someone with external genitalia and breasts and put them in a jail with 40 men, Lilly said. Some studies say 13 percent of inmates will be sexually abused. Others put that at one in four. Those who identify themselves as transgender or transsexual are at greater risk of rape and abuse in the prison system. Hence, the option of protective single occupancy housing. Nine out of 10 opt for it, Lilly said. The classification section also takes into consideration whether the transgender detainee is likely to victimize someone else. Because transgendered people are more likely to have contact with law enforcement, their prison records play a role, too, in where they are housed in prison. The federal Prison Rape Elimination Act, adopted by Congress in 2003, which addresses standards for handling all inmates, including transgendered, has yet to be fully implemented. In Florida and other states, jails have until August of 2014 before state governors send in inspectors and report back on how well voluntary PREA standards have been implemented in their states. Those whove made less than exemplary progress stand to lose millions in grants. Sarasota County is in good shape, Lilly says. I think we are pretty progressive when it comes to policy development. The standards we use are legally based. They shouldnt be arbitrary. It encompasses how we intake inmates, what training we need for corrections staff, and how inmates are housed, Lilly said. We havent had anyone object to our classification, he said. Among other tools, the classification section combines interviews and a decision tree process that numerically scores inmates at high, medium or low risk of being abused. Its a tried and true system, Lilly said.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comINMATESFROM PAGE 1 A State Attorney would rather not prosecute a case against a city of Venice code enforcement officer who took what he deemed to be an illegal sign out of another mans vehicle. The city docked John Patek, 63, three days pay for reaching into the vehicle owned by barber Larry Hakes, of Palm Barber Shop in the Venice Mall. The barber came out screaming, said officials, demanding his sign back. The city provided another sign later, but Hakes never put the sign back up again. City officials later said Hakes never had authority to run his business out of that location because the business space was divided improperly and an occupational license was never issued. The sign, placed in the open hatchback of a vehicle, was illegal, Patek said. A new city code has since addressed the loophole. On Tuesday, Patek and his attorney Robert Harrison were in court ready to pick a jury for trial. But the charge, originally filed as a felony burglary, was reduced to a second degree misdemeanor and refiled, meaning no jail time, and thus no right to a jury trial. Instead, the case was rescheduled for a non-jury trial on Dec. 20. State Attorney Bill Greiner told a 12th Circuit Judge he wanted the extra time to hold a pretrial meeting of minds to settle this in an appropriate manner. Thats good news for Patek. Bottom line: What (Mr.) Patek did was not a crime, Harrison said. Thats why they want to get out of it. This is like a police officer who sees a bag of marijuana in a car in plain view. Has a police officer committed trespass if they grab the marijuana? No. This poor guy was just doing his job. Theres no crime here. There isnt a case. Harrison said he believes the State Attorney was, in essence, characterizing the incident as a technical violation, but not worth pursuing. This should not be in the courthouse, Harrison said. Its not something you see very often. I (believe) the state was absolutely mortified to take this in front of a jury. Theyre trying to get out of it. Obviously were not to going to get in their way (while they attempt) to drop it.Public works employee under reviewA city public works employee is also under review for his actions off the clock. David Szakalos, 51, was arrested a week ago, and held without bond on burglary and battery charges. Szakalos allegedly entered the home of an elderly neighbor to burglarize the house. The elderly woman, sitting in a reclining chair, pulled a knife and stabbed him. Charlotte County Sheriff deputies tracked Szakalos to his house in Englewood, following a trail of blood drops. Director of Administrative Services Alan Bullock said Szakaloss case is under review to see if his actions violate any city personnel policies or rules. He has no sick time or holiday leave available, and a family member called in to say he would be unable to come to work until further notice, Bullock said. City Manager Ed Lavallee said its too ear ly to determine whether Szakalos will keep his job. I dont want to prejudge it, Lavallee said. Obviously there is a concern about his judgment.Suit filedA former utilities department worker, Bill Grant, was red from his position with the city in 2009 for allegedly pushing a subcontractor. The two were working on a broken water line in the Bay Indies Mobile Home Park when the incident occurred. The subcontractor, Jody Gorman, 40, sued the city and Grant in September, just shy of the three-year statute of limitations. Gorman is seeking $100,000 in damages in a jury trial. In a court filing, Gorman said the Venice employee was drunk and caused him permanent injury when he was pushed to the ground.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comState Attorney not keen on pursuing case against code officialBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR rfnt b bffffnbfnrf rfrnf tbn ffbfbnb rffntfbtf brfr bfn ffbfbnb ffbfbnb f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f n fb 479627 rfnftbbbtrfntbnrbn rfnn nntb n nn bnf f rffntbf r r fnt r frntbbb tbbtbbtbbbr ftbbftbbfntbbftbbb tbbtbb rf nttb f rf n rrtbbntbbtbbtbbtbbtbbb tbtbbtbtbbtbtbbtbtbb 480915 480363 T ada RalphsInteriors.com 528 E.

BUSINESS MATTERSCONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 6A WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2013 People start a business for many reasons, but occasionally it can be due to a rare occurrence. Such a situation arose for a young lady in Venice who recalls having a very vivid dream in which a close relative, no longer living, encouraged her to pursue a latent ambition. I had a crazy dream relating to my father who died when I was a child and it forever changed my life, Lisa Dubeansky said. I woke up and began the footwork to launch my business in January 2011. Renting time at a kitchen in Sarasota, she started her business, Hosted Gourmet, which is home-based on the island of Venice. She created the name as it is descriptive of her service going to clients parties and ensuring the host becomes the guest at their own event. Initially, it was house parties, which are infrequent; now she has moved to corporate luncheons, pharmaceutical events and business events. Often these groups order the same menu, which can become boring, but with Hosted Gourmet, it changes all the time because she customizes everything to ensure there is no repetition. With no menus, I am always changing the food, sometimes with seasonal ingredients, she said. Customers will tell me their favorite ingredients, and I incorporate those in what I prepare for their event. Leaving Cleveland, Ohio, where she grew up, she worked for nine years bar tending in Chicago restaurants and traveling in Europe, Argentina and Brazil and all over the U.S. In 2005, she developed medical issues and came to Venice to join her mom. She began working at various local restaurants although her intentions were to take up nursing eventually. Admitting she found it was not easy and she did not feel connected, she began looking at other opportunities. I had this concept of Hosted Gourmet for some time but did not believe I could do it, she said. In 2011, I catered and participated in the Iron Chef event, did a magazine hosting for 150 people and a party for 100 and realized my business career had begun. Continuing her career at the Crows Nest while seeking opportunities for her catering business, she began networking. Joining the local chapter of Business Networking International proved invaluable and enabled her to make Hosted Gourmet a full-time business. Two medium sized local businesses contracted with her to do all their lunches and recently she signed up a company with ofces along the Sun Coast to create and cater for their employee Christmas parties. Her personal goal is to have her own kitchen in Venice within a year. The ultimate goal she has is to be the next Food Network TV star on the reality show of the Food Network, where the winner has their own TV show teaching people how to throw a party with unique, easy appetizers. I am all about color and avor, loving the way food marries, coming together into unique dishes, she said. I excel and I am most creative in appetizers and salads. As the business grows, she still relates every day to the tagline with which she launched Hosted Gourmet Be the guest at your own party. Hosted Gourmet can be contacted by calling 941-323-9898.A dream one night led to a new careerBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONWith a mouthwatering display of appetizers, Lisa Dubeansky, owner of Hosted Gourmet, catered for a local business grand opening last week on the island of Venice.

The intentions of co-owners Luigi Ferraro, Nico and Mino Candelora are to provide dinners matching the Italian seasons at their new Ristorante San Marco at 305B West Venice Avenue across from Daiquiri Deck. This name reects then Italian Mediterranean cuisine you would enjoy in the atmosphere of St Marks Square in Venice, Italy, Ferraro said.

Maitre de is Nico Candelora, an Italian chef from south of Naples, Italy.

Traditionally, they have had an aquarium in the restaurant. That has changed. The aquarium is now larger. Family owned and oper ated by either myself or my dad on site every day, the only thing having changed is the address, said Mariel Arbuckle, co-owner. From the long bar, we are serving wine, beer and liquor. A casual family restaurant, it has the original menu featuring sh, chicken, hand-cut steaks and burgers. Further, the entire weekly bar specials are coming back. Opening seven days at 11 a.m. for lunch and dinner, the restaurant will serve the entire menu all day until closing at 9 p.m. Many of the familiar signs of Left Coast Seafood decorate the walls of the restaurant, which has seating for 150 diners. Eventually, when the banqueting room is opened up, they will cater to a total of 240 people. They are still working on that room, and it will not be in use until it is completed. Former customers will recognize many of the familiar faces of Left Coast employees, most of whom returned to work at the new location. We hired four former Crossroads employees back and an additional 5 to 10 new people, making a total of 40, Arbuckle said. Since opening, it has been a great week and we could not be happier.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A From trainee to business owner in just eight years is the success many young entrepreneurs dream about. For one enthusiastic young woman, it became reality a few weeks ago when she took over a thriv ing small store in Venice. Denee MacDonald obtained a job at Annies Books and Gifts at 1522 U.S. 41 Bypass to the rear of Starbucks Coffee. At 17 in 2005, she was employed part-time by store owner Ann Sink. It was a most successful relationship as MacDonald had been a reader for most of her life and soon became engrossed with the uniqueness of the business. At the time, Annies Books and Gifts only carried secondhand books but had a good customer clientele buying used paperbacks and then trading them in toward more used paperbacks. Recycling is a green way to help the environment. Within a very short time, she became full-time manager as the business grew. Their inventory of both ction and non-ction totaled more than 20,000 when counted four years ago. At the time, the owner began increasing the variety of items available by introducing two lines of candles, then some jewelry. At the beginning of this year, she took an extended maternity leave returning on Nov. 1 not only to her full time position as manager but also taking over as the proprietor. My long-time mentor Ann Sink decided after 17 years to retire from the business, MacDonald said. She will be greatly missed but my sister, Dakoda Drew, has joined me and we look forward to keeping Venices favorite bookstore alive for future generations to enjoy. Annies is no longer the small bookstore; it now has the best-selling hardbacks and paperbacks, a selection of Betsey Johnson jewelry and handbags together with Vera Bradley purses. Loose glass beads are available to design and to make bracelets. There are beautiful puzzles from several manufacturers, sunglasses, watches and greeting cards, and the stationery section is being enlarged. Used paperbacks are still the main item and MacDonald is hoping to reach out to a lot of younger people who do not know about the store to convert them to become readers of our books. I think the magic of reading is kind of lost on my generation, so I am bringing a younger feel to the store while keeping all our regular customers, she said.

OUR VIEWDont leave SCAT bus riders in the rainMost people dont give it a moments thought, but if you ever ride a SCAT bus, it is something you are well aware of. Especially if its bright, sunny and hot. Even more so it its raining heavily. Less than 90 percent of the 2,000plus bus stops in the Sarasota County Area Transit system have bus shelters that give riders a bench to sit on or a place to escape the hot sun or the rain. For the most part, people are left standing or sitting next to the SCAT signs along the routes. This is not an optimal way to run a xed-route bus system, fair to say. But bus shelters are expensive. Sarasota County recently analyzed purchase costs and showed the average shelter (9 feet long) with rolled aluminum roof cost $4,725 to buy. A 4-foot bench added $275 to the price. Another $275 went for a trash receptacle, bringing the total cost to $5,275. By comparison, Manatee Countys bus system paid only $3,500 for an average shelter, but $360 for a bench and $525 for a heavy trash receptacle. The total there was only $4,385. Manatees shelters tend to be smaller, the SCAT analysis noted. Sarasota has ve or six sizes and designs. This was an average and Sarasotas tend to be larger. Besides, the actual cost of a shelter is only a fraction of the total cost of construction. The county has to pour a concrete pad that can withstand the force of heavy winds on an anchored shelter. The pad must have a walkway in order to be ADA-compliant. It must have approved drainage for water runoff. It may need retaining walls. It needs rights-of-way, which may have to be purchased. It needs a building permit. Oh brother. Back in February, SCAT and public works analysts estimated an average cost of $40,000 per structure. Some recent installations there were 51 in the past year ranged in price from $61,911 for eight unspecied shelters, to $36,885 for 13 shelters in North Port, down to $17,874 for shelters North County and $16,980 in South County. Last week, Sarasota County commissioners approved the installation of 25 new shelters in the coming year (eight in South County), but reluctantly; these were well into the bureaucratic pipeline and rejection would have caused more delay. But commissioners made it clear they wanted a lot more shelters as soon as possible. Commissioner Joe Barbetta told SCAT ofcials to look for low-hanging fruit, presumably the cheaper, easier sites. He also suggested whittling the options to two or three basic styles. We agree: Smaller shelters would be appropriate in many locations. He also insisted transit ofcials get together with their colleagues in the public works and stormwater departments to gure out places where the permitting and construction rigmarole will be minimized. We hope its possible. Government invariably complicates things for varying reasons, some valid and some far less so. The message is right: Make it work. Dont install structures in low-trafc sites simply because they are cheaper, but try to nd a way to stretch the funding. Dont leave SCAT riders out in the rain. Ah, yes, the joys of homelessnessWhen I was the editor of the Gondolier Sun, I read pretty much everything that went into the paper. Now that I have other responsibilities, I dont pre-read as much of the paper, though that may change after a recent Letem Have It call that luckily was brought to my attention. If it hadnt been, I might have missed learning this enlightening fact: Homeless people like being homeless. Here, in case you missed it, is the pertinent part of the call: We dont need to do a center for homeless people because you know what, they want to be homeless. They like being drunks, they like panhandling, they dont want any help. Now I understand: Homelessness has grown not because of a weak economy, or the closure of mental health facilities, or the fact that many families are one crisis of any type from losing their dwelling, or the lack of adequate substance-abuse treatment and other resources. No, its because its so darn much fun. And whats not to like? You get to be a drunk, you can set your own hours for your panhandling job and you sleep under the stars. Its almost like being in Scouts, without having to buy a uniform. The call made me wonder why an industrious homeless person hasnt come up with the idea of The Homeless Experience, to allow people who have housing to get a taste of all that homelessness has to offer. Hed make a fortune. But if its as good as adver tised, everyone would abandon their houses for tents and bridge overpasses, and wed have another real estate crisis. Bad idea. Thankfully, Ive never been homeless, but I camped out a lot as a Scout and a Scout leader and always had a good time. Heres one of the major reasons: I knew it would be over in two or three days. Homelessness tends to go on longer. A lot longer. I dont want to cast aspersions on the person who called, but I think I can safely assume he or she isnt a social worker with local experience. Perhaps some information about our local homeless population from people who are involved with them will give him or her a different perspective. The Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness conducts a homeless census in Sarasota and Manatee counties each year. This years took place on the night of Jan. 27, 2013. Among the ndings: The number of people counted as homeless in the region was 2,054, an increase of 40 percent over the 2011 count, possibly due to a combination of changes in methodology and the inclusion of all homeless family members. Still, the number of homeless is likely low, given the Partnerships limited resources and the fact that some of the homeless avoid participation for a variety of reasons. 86 percent were adult-only households. The vast majority of homeless counted were adult, male and white, though with blacks represented at a higher percentage than in the general population. 39 percent said they had a physical or mental disability, or substance-abuse issues. 8.21 percent were veterans. Nearly 30 percent of those surveyed said they were victims of domestic violence. 42 percent had been homeless for more than one year. 64 percent said their homelessness was due to unemploy ment or nancial hardship. 22 percent were children under 18, a total of 439 children. Even allowing for the possibility that some of the census participants werent completely honest in their responses, theres still no basis to conclude that all the homeless are drunk panhandlers who dont want help. The children certainly arent; most of them are in school, which is good. In fact, according to the Partnerships website, many homeless adults actually work regular jobs but dont make enough money to afford housing. No more than a quarter have mental or substance-abuse issues, and those groups overlap to some degree. And the fastest-growing homeless population is families, not the stereotypical bum the caller seems to have envisioned. Yes, there are some homeless people who will never live a normal life no matter what assistance theyre given. Thats OK, if theyre not hurting anyone. But most are living a lifestyle they feel they were forced into, not that they chose. And they dont like it. They deserve help, not thoughtless contempt.

I think its about time we stop trying to rescue hikers who leave no address and go hiking in inaccessible spots and get lost. Skiers who ski where landslides are prevalent. Climbers who climb impossible cliffs and cant get out of their own way. And a bunch of other devil-type things. If these people are going to engage in this type of activity, if they get into trouble, let them call their family on a cell phone and let them pay for the cost of rescue. Im tired of helping people out of dopey things. President lied. I just want to state that Im outraged that the president used the you can keep your health care line. I truly think that the promise he made got him many votes, and now we found out it was a lie. Im just outraged. Volleyball announcer. Ive gone to two girls volleyball games and Im considering not going again as long as the present announcer is still working there. He has a loud, very loud, screaming voice that is totally unintelligible. Rather than a slow, thoughtful voice that could be understood by the crowd, he holds the microphone close to his lips and literally screams. Bad job, Bank of America. The Bank of America at Jacaranda Boulevard and Center better get their act together. One hour of waiting to transfer money from one account of theirs to another account of theirs. Lobby was full of people when I left waiting for a teller. One teller. They were all the way to the front door. All the chairs at one point were lled with waiting people. You cant make customers wait an hour just to transfer some money. We all thought that at the time, too. Loved the parade. Im well into my seventies and I loved the Venice Halloween Parade. Those kids were so cute. Id never miss it. Museum design is ugly. I think the design for the new Venice area museum is ugly and does not complement other buildings. Its way too boxy. It looks like a hodgepodge. I bet Nolan wouldnt like it either. Guns. I hate guns, but as long as they will be made somewhere, Venice might as well prot. The jail. Im calling about the Sheriff closing the South County Jail. I think its another case of the South County getting the shaft. Also, I think this is resulting from him getting into a match with the mayor. Its unfortunate that its going to impact the other police departments. Sheriff leaving is mayors fault. I hope the mayor is happy. He obviously ticked off the Sheriff, and now the Sheriff is going to take his toys and go home and its going to impact the city of Venice negatively. Now were going to have ofcers up in Sarasota instead of Venice. I hope the mayor is happy that he keeps bringing up dual taxation stuff and keeps slamming the Sheriff about the ofcers in the schools and everything else. Nice job, mayor.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A Democrata. Democrats think that if a Democrat does it, its right; and if its a Republican idea, Republicans think its right. All the while, forgetting what is right for America. When you watch the representatives vote 100 percent by party, there is something wrong. It means the vote is for the party and not for America. Lets clean up Washington and Tallahassee. Forget Republicans and Democrats and be Americans. Coyotes & Rats. I live in South Venice on the alphabet street, A to Z. Well, weve had this thing with coyotes eating our cats Maybe thats why all of a sudden weve got so many rats around here. Theres so many houses in foreclosure that are sitting there empty, and now everyone is ghting rats. I wish there was some way the county could help us, but theyre just taking over the houses. Unemployment ofce. Its been four weeks now and unemployment still hasnt gotten it together. Theyre very slowly getting checks to some of the people. But I call almost every day and Im on hold from two to three hours. They tell me something and the next day, I have to call again. Making roads better. If you drive down West Venice Ave. from Business 41 to Harbor, its like a washboard. It seems to me that Venice City Council could nd some funds to blacktop that area. The people who come downtown do not deserve to have to drive on those streets. Its just unbelievable that theyre nding money for everything else, but not to blacktop that. Thats not a good thing for our visitors here. We all help each other. Young people pay into Social Security for others benets. Young people and old people pay taxes to educate children that they dont have in school. Are you against that? Taxpayers pay in the long run for uninsured people who go to the emergency room for free. So, we all chip in for the well-being of our fellow man. Some day there will be someone out there helping you. Think of yourself as a good Samaritan and quit griping. Beach situation. Im calling about your article in the Venice Gondolier Sun about the stormwater project to protect Venice beaches from hazardous, biological contamination that have been closing the beach on a regular basis for the last three years. Theyve finally figured out the contamination problem. And now after studying this for years and hiring engineers, they came up with a reasonable solution that is very simple. But 30 people have decided that it is not what they would like. So the desires of 30 residents somehow outweighs the benefit to the entire population of Venice and the thousands and thousands of people who use the beach every day. NIMBY stands for not in my backyard, and I think its about time in this country that we stop letting a few individuals, the squeaky wheels, cost all of us so much money and time wasted arguing over something that is in the public good. Yes, it may cause a slight inconvenience for a few residents. OK. What it will do is keep our beaches safe for the thousands who use them every day. Guns arent the problem. Guns are not the problems. People are the problem. If that man who walked into that Sandy Springs school had walked in with a machete, he could have cleaned out four or ve classrooms before anybody knew that there was anything wrong. The fact that it was a gun, there was a report. The kid who killed all those people in the theater. If he had walked into the theater with a machete and walked up the aisles, he could have killed a whole lot of people. As I said, guns are not the problem, people are the problem. You take guns away, take the machete away, they got baseball bats or theyve got rocks. Theres always something. If someone wants to kill, theyre going to kill. People are the problem. And what we have to do is call out the people with mental problems. You do that, and youll take a lot of the people out of the system. But guns are denitely not the problem.

The Indians best shot at a state title may be in the boys 400-yard freestyle relay, for which Venices foursome David Lattimer, Peyton Leeson, John Pelton and Matt Pelton is seeded rst overall. The boys set a school record in the event at Saturdays regional meet.State swim meet set for SaturdaySTAFF REPORT COURTESY PHOTOVenice Highs 400-yard freestyle relay team (left to right: David Lattimer, Peyton Leeson, John Pelton and Matt Pelton) set a school record en route to winning the event at Saturdays regional meet. Meredith Kessler and Andrew Starykowicz both used a strong bike to gap the fields at Rev3 Venice Florida triathlon Sunday. With a stacked field in both the mens and the womens, the races did not disappoint. Series leaders Lauren Goss and Eric Limkemann secured their top spot for the series finale in May of 2014 with their podium finishes at todays event. Todd Skipworth led the men to shore, with Cameron Dye on his feet. However, the break was not significant as the main pack, which included all the main players, hit T1 not far behind. The breakaway worked on the flat and fast bike course, with Starykowicz taking the lead by mile 4 of the bike. A pack of 14 riders assembled but could do nothing but watch him ride away. At mile 38, Dye put in a surge to challenge the pack. Limkemann stayed in contact with Dye and the two entered T2 together, down over 5 minutes to Starykowicz. However, no one would challenge Starykowicz today. He cruised to the win. It was great to return to Venice, Starykowicz said. The community support was amazing! I was thrilled to come back and set a new world record on the bike. Linkemann showcased his improved run today and passed Dye within the first 2km. Richie Cunningham was moving quickly through the field and took over second place by mile 3. Cunningham had Greg Billington right with him stride for stride for the first lap. Billington fell off the pace in the second lap, and Limkemann repassed him to take third. Once again, Rev3 put on an amazing race at an awesome venue, which attracted a quality pro field, Cunningham said. I had a great battle today and kept my chances alive for the Rev3 series. This was Venices second year hosting the event. Limkemann sits atop the series standings heading into Knoxville 2014. I cant think of a better place than Florida to end the season, Limkemann said. The conditions were perfect and the competition was tough, so it made for a fast day. Im looking forward to enjoying the off season, then focusing on the series championship in Knoxville next May.Kessler, Starykowicz shine in Rev3 triathlonSTAFF REPORT The Venice Indians (23-7) advanced to their eighth Final Four in school history Saturday, overpowering Mitchell (24-6) from start to nish for a 25-12, 25-10, 25-14 sweep of the Mustangs, who entered having won 20 consecutive matches. Though Mitchell entered with the prettier record and home-court advantage, the Indians proved to be better-suited for the big stage, thanks to months of playing many of the states most prestigious programs. Mustangs Head Coach Keith Paulk admitted his teams record was padded by playing inferior competition, and credited Venices schedule as one of the deciding factors that allowed the Indians to run away with the match. They play this level of match far more than we do, Paulk said. Theyre playing state champions from last year pretty much two-thirds of their season. And we cant replicate that. Leading 8-6 in the opening set, the Indians went on a 17-6 run to seize control of the match. After the Mustangs took a 7-3 lead in the second, Venice responded with an 11-0 run as the Indians myriad attacks kept the Mustangs on their heels. Their sophistication on offense is just tremendous, Paulk said. Theyre the defending champs, and the probable state champs. Venice got a team-high 10 kills from Hannah Richards, with Lauren Mattmuller (ve kills, ve blocks), Gen Beaumier (six kills) and Cassie Kasmirski (ve aces, 10 digs) playing key roles in the win as well. The Indians had 11 team blocks and served 10 aces. Venice, which sput tered during the rst month of the season, has hit its stride over the past three weeks, winning 11 of their last 12 matches. Head Coach Brian Wheatley and his players agreed that the teams improved passing deserves much of the credit for the turnaround. This was probably the worst passing team Ive ever had, Wheatley said of the August-September version of the Indians. Weve spent more time passing this year than I ever have, times 100. And now were one of the top passing teams Ive ever had. Mattmuller echoed Wheatley, saying, Its re ally remarkable, because in the beginning of the season (the passing) was really questionable. We do passing during practice every single day, and we spend so much time on it. We break it down to footwork, platforms, everything. Ive never done that much passing, but obviously its paid off for our team. That development was on full display Saturday as the Indians routinely got the ball to setter Kiona McSwain, who dispensed 21 assists and added 13 digs, four kills and two blocks. Im barely moving, McSwain said. All I have to do is set our hitters. Its awesome. The senior transferred to Venice from Riverview, and said the adjustment has been equal parts difcult and enjoyable. You just work so much harder (at Venice), but you want to work hard, she said. Its weird, but I love it. I dont want to leave. With the win, the Indians have a chance to win back-to-back state titles for the rst time in the programs history. Venice won state volleyball titles in 1998, 2005 and 2012. Wheatley, though, said his team cant afford to start thinking about Thursdays championship match just yet. Were all about the next match, he said. Theres no reason to talk about a state championship when weve got a seminal to play. The Indians will take on Ocala Vanguard (24-4) Wednesday at 1 p.m. in one of two 6A seminal matches at Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee. The winner will play the winner of the Gainesville Middleburg-Nease match, which will be played immediately before Venice-Vanguard. The Indians defeated Vanguard 19-25, 25-17, 25-18 at the Berkeley Prep Premier Tournament Sept. 21.Fan bus available for Wednesdays matchAnyone interested in attending Wednesdays match is encouraged to ride on the Indians fan bus, which will depart Venice Community Center at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Typically, a football team will get a week, maybe two, to prepare for an upcoming opponent. Sensing that a win over Armwood in Fridays 6A regional quarternal will take an atypical effort, the Venice Indians (8-2) will come in as prepared as they possibly can be. By the time Friday night rolls around, the Indians will have spent nearly a month preparing for this showdown. Once Venice lost to Largo Oct. 18 (and were assured of playing Armwood in the rst round of the playoffs), the Indians began preparing for the Hawks, who boast a perfect 10-0 record and have outscored opponents 401-42 this season. A bye week and two nonthreatening opponents at the end of the regular season schedule allowed Venice to look ahead to its biggest game of the season, one that few outside of Venice expect them to win. The Indians originally planned to meet the Hawks in the regional seminal, but Venices last-second loss to Largo moved the clash up a week. Knowing a postseason run would have to go through Armwood eventually, the Indians say now is as good a time as any to knock off the twotime state champions. As soon as we lost to Largo, our goal changed to beating Armwood, Venice Head Coach John Peacock said. Were excited about it. Senior defensive tackle Dane Dabney said, During the bye week (Oct. 21-26), we focused on Armwood and dissected their lm. So we should denitely be prepared on Friday night. Venice will likely rely heavily on running back Terry Polk, who broke VHS single-season record for rushing yards with 1,728 during the regular season. But the Hawks are well aware that Polk is the Indians go-to threat, and physically dominant teams in the mold of Armwood (e.g., Manatee) have had success neutralizing Venices ground game in recent years. The Indians passing game showed ashes over the course of the year, but was unable to demonstrate consistent prociency. Many times Venice didnt need to throw, with Polk and the offensive line chewing up yards in chunks. That likely wont be the case Friday, however, so quarterback Dom Marinos play will be paramount if the Indians are to advance. The Indians defense will have its hands full with a mauling Armwood offensive line that will have a size advantage over Venice. The Indians have been strong against the run all season, but wore down late in the loss to Manatee. Venices odds of winning will increase exponentially if Marino and the offense are able to sustain drives and keep their own defense well-rested. Its gonna take every body working together and working hard, Polk said.

12A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2013 Its been the city utilities departments No. 1 priority project for years, according to Utilities Director Len Bramble. He emceed a welcome committee on Tuesday, Nov. 12 that gave tours of the water treatment facility providing taxpayers a rsthand glimpse into a project that will, over time, lower costs for the city, provide better tasting water, and increase capacity not just for future residents but for other cities and counties who may wish to purchase additional water. Its part of an overhaul of the citys utilities infrastructure. This summer the city constructed a second reclaimed water storage tank on Laurel Road that will hold 7.5 million gallons. The project cost was $3 million, offset by a grant of $1.375 million from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. On the island, the city continued replacing large water mains that were relocated from residents backyards to the front yards for easier access blocks at a time. The new pipes provided better water pressure for many. Other improvements include replacing the existing odor control system, which city staff say is inadequate to treat the amount of water being processed.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comOSMOSISFROM PAGE 1 Ofce helicopter was able to spot the crash site. The victim once aboard Fallons boat was reached by a marine rescue unit with Charlotte County Fire/ EMS. He was brought ashore at Ponce de Leon Park in Punta Gorda, about a mile or two away. The man was checked by medical per sonnel as a precaution, but he refused to go to a hospital. I was surprised he didnt have any injuries, said Charlotte County Fire/EMS Battalion Chief Larry Lippel. The pilot was ying to the Punta Gorda Airport. He told the control tower he was having engine trouble and then lost communication, Lippel said. I cant think of the last time we had a (downed) plane out here in the water, Lippel said. Authorities could not comment on where the man was coming from, the purpose of his ight, or the planes altitude when it began descending. The United States Coast Guard stayed with the mostly submerged aircraft Monday to ensure safety for boaters, but there was no fuel leakage, no objects in the plane or any other hazards, according to Lippel. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board have been notied of the incident. Authorities recovered the wreckage Monday afternoon. Fallon who was on hand to see the damaged plane realizes he could have witnessed something much worse. Im glad hell live to y again, he said.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comPILOTFROM PAGE 1 their lives for those two hours and just enjoy being alive and sharing this experience with friends, family and strangers. Boaters all over this community have the chance to do what many people seek to accomplish and that is to make a positive impact on thousands of people without ever speaking a word. Frankly, all of this is at risk this year as participation thus far is not at the levels needed to have a successful parade. So there is a group who will meet again tomorrow night and will brainstorm over the things needed to be done over the next two weeks in order to generate renewed Christmas spirit in not only our boaters hearts but in everyones heart. If you know a boater, offer to help them prepare their boat for this awesome occasion. Surely everyone can begin talking about the need for participation and donate time, lights, decorations or encouragement to their boater friends. I saw my rst Venice Christmas parade many years ago and the magic never left my memories and it would be a shame to ever have to say we dont have a Christmas Boat Parade any longer. Time is our enemy at this point of the adventure but the battle can be easily won with 30 or so phone calls from willing participants tomorrow. There is a group meeting tomorrow night and it would darn sure be nice to walk in there with 30 new participants so that we could get on with the plans to have our parade. Call me at 941-207-1010 and lets put on a parade not soon forgotten.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A addressed the crowd. It is very humbling to stand here among so many living heroes of this great country, Holic said. United States Air Force Master Sgt. Barbara Miller-Vaughan spoke next. The most important thing I did as a mother was teach my children to be patrons, MillerVaughan said. Nothing is more important than our country and the love we have for it. Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson talked about members of her family who have served in the military, including her grandfather, father and numerous others. It is the highest honor to be here today to represent the county, Robinson said. But I want to take a personal moment to thank all who served for securing the safety and freedom for my three young children you all are my heroes. Phil Groebe played taps and the honor guide ended the ceremony with a rie salute to pay tribute to all who have lived through conicts, died in conicts and those missing in action who never came home. Purple Heart recipient and POW Col. Jack Olsen clenched his st over his heart as taps was being played. Olsen was commander of a B17 four-engine bomber when he was 20 years old. His plane went down in Yugoslavia, and the crew of 10 all made it safely to the ground. The group was separated and Olsen served in a prison camp for 10 months. We marched 73 days through the winter snow because the Russian army was coming through and we needed to get out of there, Olsen said. Gavin Dixon, a student at Venice Middle School, handed a card of thanks to Olsen. Students at Taylor Ranch Elementary School made the cards and Dixon passed them out to veterans. Handshakes and salutes were prominent throughout the crowd as old friends as well as strangers embraced, shared a story and shed a tear in remembrance. Email Susan Erwin at susanerwin2@gmail.com.HEROESFROM PAGE 1 The public will soon have more beach access at Blind Pass Park in Englewood. Commissioners recently unanimously approved a $2.3 million deal to purchase a 1.67-acre Gulf-to-bay property directly south of the park on Manasota Key. The land has a home on it, with approximately 137 linear feet of beach frontage on the Gulf of Mexico. The property contains beach and dunes, a small bit of coastal hammock, and mangroves along Lemon Bay. In addition to the home on the Gulf side, there is a boat dock across the road on the bay. The parcel was one of several targeted by the countys Natural Resources and Recreation Advisory Board in 1986, but the county did not buy the land, and the owners built a 3,447-square-foot singlefamily home on the property with a two-car garage and a pool. Blind Pass Beach Park is in the middle of Manasota Key, just about a mile north of the Charlotte County line. It extends Gulf-to-bay and includes picnic shelters, restrooms, a nature trail, playground, boat dock, kayak launch and the historic Hermitage complex. The nonprofit Hermitage Artist Retreat has leased the complex since 2001, and has invested in the repair of the five buildings on the property. County Parks and Recreation director Carolyn Brown said the Hermitage group has offered to lease all or part of the new site and will provide all funds for restoration and upkeep of the site. That relieves the county of maintenance costs. Brown said the group will also use the residence on the site to increase opportunities for artists to come to Sarasota County, and the Hermitage will use the upper floor of the house for their administrative offices. The Hermitage has also pledged to expand its already well-attended free public events. Hermitage Executive Director Bruce Rogers said the programs have grown in popularity since they started in 2006 and are held about once a month. They usually draw 150 to 225 people. Events would also be able to be held inside the house in the event of inclement weather. This will benefit our community by the national and international acclaim of expansion of their program, Brown said. The commission unanimously approved the acquisition with little discussion. Commissioner Chris tine Robinson said, despite the high price, the property will be an asset to the county, and that includes the Hermitage. Ive heard from a lot of people in Englewood that would like to see this happen, Robinson said. This is a oncein-a-lifetime possibility and well probably never get it again. This is a win-win, and even if the Hermitage wasnt right next door, the fact that its adjacent to a current park would make it a win-win anyway, Commissioner Charles Hines added. The fact that we can turn it over to an organization thats proven itself beyond worthy to manage public property and take care of it makes this an easy decision. The county must close on the transaction by Dec. 31. The purchase would be funded through the countys capital improvement program.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comCounty approves expansion of Blind Pass ParkBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER WHATS THERE?The land the county bought has a 3,447-square-foot single-family home with a two-car garage and a pool.

In back is the KMI dormitory which was built as the San Marco Hotel in the 1920s. Today it serves as the Venice Center Mall with condos on the upper two oors.Character Makes the Man, the Story of Kentucky Military Institute: 1845-1971, a documentary about the countrys oldest military school, will have its premier Sunday at Venice Theatre. The theme of the school is really what it was all about, said Marty McGowan of the class of 1965. We have all kept a sense of what the school did for us. We were at the tail end of its history. The Venice premier of Character Makes the Man will be Sunday, Nov. 17 at Venice Theatre. Tickets are $20. The theater will open its doors at 7 p.m. for a reception before the lm, which will be shown at 8 p.m. After the screening, there will be Q&A session with several alumni. Call 941-488-1115. While the school may have inuenced its students, it also is credited with saving Venice in one of the citys darkest hours as the Florida land boom ended and the Great Depression swept across the nation. In 1928, the John Nolen-designed city had 4,000 residents. It was being touted as an ideal retirement community by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the countrys largest and wealthiest labor union. When the BLE pulled out of Venice as land sales slowed, the citys population plummeted to 400. There were street lights in place although no money to pay for lighting them. Streets and sewers were in place, although not all streets were paved.KMI moves to VeniceThe city of 400 residents also had three large hotels and a chamber of commerce. When chamber director W.L. Dunn learned about a re at the winter campus of KMI at EuGallie on Floridas east coast, he and a local KMI alumnus invited the KMIs superintendent, Col. Charles B. Richmond, to visit Venice. They suggested to Richmond the hotels Venice and San Marco along West Tampa Avenue could accommodate classroom and dormitory space.

I was completely exhausted after watching the movie, knowing what he went through, Art said. Four years ago, the Nicholases met Capt. Richard Phillips himself at the annual Navy SEALs Museum Muster Day in Fort Pierce, Fla. Phillips had been the guest speaker. Hazel said the lm captured much of what Phillips told them about what he experienced on board the U.S. container ship, Maersk Alabama, when it was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. What he told us was that his rst line of thought was to protect his crew which he did, Hazel said. From what he told us, (the lm) was very true to life. Art recalled how Phillips said the most harrowing part of the experience was when the pirates rst boarded the ship. Phillips didnt talk about the last moments of his captivity when he was kept tied up in a small lifeboat.Local man salutes Capt.

They all met four years ago at the annual Navy SEALs Museum Muster Day in Fort Pierce.PHILLIPS | 4Caregiving plays a signicant role in most peoples lives. For some, its caring for ones children; for others, it may be a sibling or a spouse who requires extra care. But many will be required to care for an aging par ent, often in more ways than for physical needs. Caregiving of the elderly often involves the realm of mental illness. Author Gary Joseph LeBlanc knows about such caregiving situations. He will share his experiences with people at Senior Friendship CenterVenice campus, 2350 Scenic Drive, Thursday, Nov. 14, 9:30-11 a.m. During his talk, he will share insights from his book Staying Aoat in a Sea of Forgetfulness, Managing Alzheimers and Dementia Behaviors, the No. 1 best-seller on Alzheimers and dementia on Amazon.com. His book contains personal insights of the complex, unfamiliar world of caring for a loved one with dementia, a SFC news release said. While sharing his story about the struggles he experienced as primary caregiver of his father who had Alzheimers disease, LeBlanc will also talk about triumphs experienced during the process. He will include his thoughts about the disease and the commitment, sacrifices and rewards of the seeming endless journey of caregiving, the release said. And he will give practical suggestions for providing daily care. There will be a drawing for a copy of his book, and extra copies will be available for sale. LeBlancs presentation is sponsored by Arden Courts Memory Care Community. Space is limited. Call 941584-0071 for reser vations. Light refreshments will be served. LeBlanc writes a weekly column, Common Sense Caregiving, which is featured in the Tampa Tribune and Hernando Today.

We founded VeniceOcala Heart Institute with a vision of bringing world-class care to our community and continue to provide excellent treatment to every patient who walks through our doors, said Dr. Mateo Dayo, founding partner and cardiovascular, thoracic and vascular surgeon. With 10 years behind us now and countless awards and recognition, we believe we have accomplished that goal, said Dr. Jonathan Fong, founding partner and cardiovascular, thoracic and vascular surgeon. Venice-Ocala Heart Institute has been recognized as one of Thomson Reuters Top 100 Cardiovascular Hospitals alongside other institutions such as the Mayo Clinic. The institute has made the list an additional four years consecutively. Fong and Dayo working exclusively with Venice Regional Medical Center have the lowest complication rates, fastest operating room times and shortest intensive care unit times in their ve-county area. In fact, an overwhelming majority 83 per cent of the institutes patients are over the age of 65; this is 20 percent higher than the national average for cardiac surgery patients. We welcome patients who may have been deemed too high-risk due to their age. We believe every patient should be given the opportunity to improve his or her quality of life, Dayo said. The institute credits it success to consistently adapting to the latest medical technologies, including minimally invasive techniques. Healthgrades.com, a well-known physician-rating site, named the Venice-Ocala Heart Institute among the top 5 percent of programs nationwide. This accolade means a lot to us since our patients testimonials were used to calculate our nomination, Dayo said. From a mere vision a decade ago, our institute has become a nationally recognized heart program helping patients from the Venice community and beyond, Fong said. We could not be more proud of what we have accomplished and all the patients who have touched us. We are looking to many more years of service in the Venice community, he said. About the VeniceOcala Heart Institute: The foundation of the institute is simple: to care for families as they would for their own. The physicians have worked in cooperation with the Venice Regional Medical Center to build a program that has provided the highest quality of care, recognized as one of the Top 100 cardiac surgery programs in the nation. The goal of the Venice-Ocala Heart Institute is to draw upon the expertise of two specialties car diovascular surgery and cardiovascular anesthesia to deliver the best quality of cardiothoracic and vascular care to the heart, lungs and vascular needs of the patient. The VeniceOcala Heart Institute comprises cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgeons and cardiovascular anesthesiologists working together to provide superior care for patients. The Venice-Ocala Heart Institute is located at 706 The Rialto in Venice, Fla.

A public celebration will be held next year. Even as health ofcials urge u vaccinations, residents and seasonal vis itors are also encouraged to get vaccinated against shingles. Caused by the same virus associated with chickenpox, shingles is more common and serious in older adults. Health ofcials estimate that one in three people in the United States will develop shingles during his or her lifetime. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, shingles most commonly occurs in people 50 years old or older, people who have medical conditions that keep the immune sys tem from working proper ly, or people who receive immunosuppressive drugs. For some, the blistering skin rash can lead to severe pain that can last for months or even years. Other complications of shingles include eye problems and, less often, pneumonia, hearing problems, blindness and brain swelling (encephalitis).

After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus stays in the body in a dormant state, said Dr. William Heymann, Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County medical executive director. For reasons that are not fully known, the virus can reactivate many years later, causing shingles. The likelihood of getting shingles or experiencing severe and lasting complications is greatly reduced in those who get the singles vaccine. Shingles vaccine is only needed once. You can get shingles more than once so it is advisable to get the vaccine even if you have had the disease. Those who have been vaccinated and then later get shingles usually have a much milder experience. The vaccine, which is 60 percent effective in preventing shingles, has few, if any, side effects. Those who receive the shingles vaccine at the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County may only be required to pay their co-pay if they have coverage for the vaccine through Medicare Part D, said DOH-Sarasotas Immunization Program Director Donna Keith. Be sure to bring your card with you so we can le the appropriate claim for payment, DOH-Sarasota offers adult vaccinations, including for shingles, daily at its two Sarasota County locations.

SOUTH TRAIL 4B WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2013 CONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS We enjoyed his company, Art said. (Phillips) gave all the credit to the SEALs. Art Nicholas, now 90, is a charter member of the Navy SEALs Museum. He was not a SEAL, but was one of the precursors to the SEALs a member of the Navys Scouts & Raiders during World War II, and what were then called frogmen. Phillips asked Nicholas and other Scouts & Raiders to join them for dinner. During the Normandy Invasion, Nicholas was attached to a Canadian unit and disarmed mines offshore of what was dubbed Gold Beach. The survival gear that we had were just belts around our bellies with two CO2 cartridges, he said. Nicholas also served on a 36-foot LST landing craft in North Africa. He served on a landing craft in the ill-fated Operation Tiger, a disastrous dress rehearsal for the D-Day invasion. Nicholas said troops were attacked by German E-boats, similar to the U.S. Navys PT boats in WWII. He recalled the carnage resulting in 749 soldiers deaths. When they started shooting, we didnt know it was real until we started seeing the ships going down and everyone going crazy, Nicholas said. The asco was kept top secret for 40 years. (General Dwight D. Eisenhower) issued an ultimatum that (Operation Tiger) never happened, and if anyone discussed it, they would be subject to a court martial. When asked how he survived, he said his landing craft wasnt attacked. The Navy SEALs Museum is located in Fort Pierce, where Nicholas and others trained as naval combat demolition units and underwater demolition teams. The museum was dedicated in November of 1985, according to the museums website at www. NavySealMuseum.com We had to train ourselves, Nicholas recalled.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comPHILLIPSFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDED BY ART AND HAZEL NICHOLASOak Forest couple Art and Hazel Nicholas stand beside the actual life boat in which Capt. Richard Phillips was held captive by Somali pirates and was rescued by U.S. Navy SEALs in 2009. SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYOak Forest residents Art and Hazel Nicholas attend the annual Navy SEALs Museum Muster Day in Fort Pierce regu larly. Art served with the U.S. Scouts & Raiders, precursors of the Navy SEALs. The couple met Capt. Richard Phillips, who was the captain of the U.S. container ship, Maersk Alabama, when it was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. It can grow up to a foot per day and reach lengths of more than 100 feet, covering trees and plants, eventually killing them by choking off the sunlight that is essential to their survival. The above description sounds like the 1958 Steve McQueen movie The Blob, but this no science ction it is real. Its Latin name is pueraria lobata also known as kudzu an invasive vine that already covers an estimated 2 million acres of forest land in the South, and is known to be in 14 counties in Florida. Kudzu is a climbing, semi-woody, perennial vine that is part of the legume family, according to the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Plant Management Section, Diameters of the plants stems can reach anywhere from half an inch to 4 inches, and there have been reports of old stumps reaching a foot across in Georgia. It is native to Southeast Asia, China and Japan, and it was rst introduced to the Southwest as a forage crop for cattle, UF/ IFAS Horticultural Agent Erin Alvarez said. Now it is eating most of the Southwest. It is in the Panhandle and central parts of Florida. It is not terribly common in Southwest Florida yet, although it has been seen here. Alvarez said that kudzu is a noxious weed that can be seen clearly from the highway when traveling through Georgia. If it escapes cultivation, it can run wild. It can take over areas, killing any natural plant species that inhabit it. An IFAS fact sheet said that kudzu has alter nately arranged leaves (that) are compound with three broad leaets up to 4 inches across. Leaets may be entirely or deeply twoto threelobed with hairy mar gins. Flowers are half an inch long, purple, highly fragrant and borne in long hanging clusters. Kudzu spreads in two ways by runners or vines, and by seeds. Each pod contains one or two seeds that are encased in a hard coating that requires scarication or wear ing down the coat by chemical or mechanical means, before they can germinate. Kudzu also boasts an enormous root system that can reach 7 inches or more in diameter, more than 6 feet in length and can weigh as much as 400 pounds. From such a huge system, 30 vines can emerge from one root crown. How can kudzu be eradicated, or at least maintained? The answer, according to the UF/IFAS website, is to keep areas closely mowed, pre-burning that will minimize the risk of it spreading, hand digging and herbicides. For small areas, herbicides bought over the counter containing glyphosate will generally do the trick. For larger patches of kudzu, a stronger concentration of glyphosate would be required. Individuals should contact professionals if such is the case. Because kudzu is full of nutrients, another more environmentally safe method is being used for its eradication: goats yes, goats that will feed on the stuff. Parts of the South, and Hawaii, are using goats and other livestock in an attempt to rid themselves of the botanical pest. Another strategy being employed is the megacopta cribraria, or kudzu bug. Native to India and China, it feasts on the kudzu plant and can dramatically reduce its spread. The kudzu bug is related to the stinkbug, Alvarez said. It has been enjoying some success in reducing its growth. Alvarez said that if caught early, kudzu can be eliminated. It grows very fast, she said. In fact, the joke in Georgia is just to sit around and watch the kudzu grow. For more information, contact the IFAS at 941860-9900 for Sarasota County and 941-7644340 for Charlotte County.Kudzu climbing its way through the SouthBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENT Kudzu is a climbing, semi-woody, perennial vine that is part of the legume family.PHOTOS PROVIDEDThe invasive kudzu vine covers about 2 million acres of forest land in the southern United States. In currently is known to be in 14 Florida counties, mostly in the panhandle and central parts of the state. First introduced as a forage crop for cattle, kudzu is now eating most of the Southwest, UF/IFAS agents say. Mote Marine Laboratory representatives say they are interested in providing the city of North Port and Sarasota County scientific information regarding Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa, but only if funding is available. The city and county jointly own the Springs, which has been closed to the public since June 30. The majority of the City Commission wants studies on the hydrology (movement, distribution and quality of water) and condition of the Springs sinkhole to help them make decisions on what can be done on the footprint of the day spa, as well as on other areas of the 81-acre property. City Manager Jonathan Lewis said those studies will be costly and time-consuming. In the summer, commissioners toured Mote lab in Sarasota and learned about its seven marine research centers, aquarium and an Education Division specializing in public programs for all ages. During a recent meeting, City Commissioner Cheryl Cook told the board she was concerned the city hasnt heard if Mote was interested in helping with the Springs. Cook said Mote was knowledgeable and could provide much-needed information to the city regarding the spa. Without Mote Marine, we lose international recognition, Cook told fellow commissioners. When contacted by the Sun Mote ofcials said they are not planning on submitting a bid for either the shortor long-term operation of the Springs. Guiding or assuming the management of Warm Mineral Springs which is primarily a spa would be contrary to our mission and outside the scope of Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, said Mote spokeswoman Hayley Rutger. Mote ofcials explained during late summer meetings with city and county ofcials that the organizations core goals are to perform diverse scientic research that supports the health and sustainability of marine natural resources, biodiversity and habitats, while also sharing that information with the public through Mote education and outreach programs. Cook is considering asking commissioners to create a fact-nding committee to do research on the Springs, including potential data collection, studies, etc. Cook could ask if a Mote scientist or other representative would be willing to be on this com mittee. However, it seems Mote researchers would want to be compensated for their time. As a nonprofit, independent and inter nationally recognized science institution, Mote Marine Laboratory has a long history of service to Southwest Florida communities in projects that are consistent with our marine research and outreach mission, Rutger said. Wed be happy to have a Mote scientist contribute their expertise to questions about Warm Mineral Springs, provided that any contributions from Mote are supported by funding from the state, county and/or city. In particular, Mote scientists have expertise regarding the endangered manatees that use the lower creek associated with Warm Mineral Springs, and Mote scientists have technical diving skills, experience with underwater sinkholes and caves and expertise in monitoring the condition and potential connectivity of such systems. Mote ofcials say they can give the city advice concerning studies that should be done at the site. Any advice Mote provides would depend on the specic questions asked by the local municipalities, and upon the availability of funding to investigate those questions, Rutger said. Commissioner Jim Blucher said he under stands scientists want to be paid for their time. We already received Motes feedback from our staff, he said. Mote doesnt have any money to invest in the Springs, but will help if we pay them. I think we have to come up with a plan before we can ask for anything else.Email: eallen@sun-herald.com Mote: Experts must be paid to help with SpringsBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH STAFF WRITER "IlkIlkE f F ,4 J ter.wrlsF '? :J y' 1 N.c ry =??"" tl3.?I??Eltslc a1.a13a?1\pl?f pl.l( ?,? a1%

a parade ground. These days, that space is known as Centennial Park. The lawn has been replaced by a parking lot, gazebo and interactive childrens fountain. Although not totally immune to the Great Depression, the gener ally wealthier parents of private school students were less affected by the U.S. economy in the 1930s. The wealthy continued to frequent such resorts as St. Petersburgs elegant Hotel Vinoy, which reportedly never lost a guest. KMI continued to maintain a second campus throughout those years and right up until 1970 when anti-war fervor in the country dealt a death blow to many such schools. With houses renting for as little as $5 a month in 1932 Venice, the arrival of the rst 170 students plus the entire faculty and staff were a welcome sight, nearly doubling the citys population overnight at least for the winter season. Tuition for the ninemonth school term, including the train ride to Florida and uniforms, was $950. The rst train to Venice left Kentuckys Military park Station on Jan. 4, 1933. Forty hours later, it arrived at the Seaboard Air Line Railway station in Venice, the same station that would welcome The Greatest Show on Earth to its new winter quarters in 1960. More than 1,000 people met the train. Their arrival proved to be an economic turning point for Venice and, to some extent, the region. Signs welcoming the KMI cadets were displayed in neighboring towns and even in Tampa. On Jan. 7, a reception was held to greet KMI staff and students. Venice residents offered a tour of Venice for the cadets. Many parents also came to visit during the winter. Some purchased winter homes in the city. Student enrollment increased by an additional 100 students within four years. KMIs Venice campusThe Hotel Venice annex building was the schools inrmary. The dining room was in the Hotel Venice (today known as The Summit Assisted Living Facility) as were ofces and additional accommodations for KMI personnel. Included in the initial seven-year lease was a bathhouse on the Gulf of Mexico. Public tennis courts and a golf course plus the citys climate helped seal the deal. The Orange Blossom Garage and another building that later became Venice Theatre became the KMIs armory and gymnasium. According to a student handbook from the 1930s, several places were off-limits to students: kitchen, dining room (except during meals), the guard house (except for guards), unoccupied cadet rooms, second and third oors of the Hotel Venice, the inrmary (unless conned there) and school ofces (except for ofcial business). When school dances were held (usually at the gymnasium), cadets had to give the girls name rst to the school ofce, from which an invitation would be sent to the young lady. She, in turn, was required to show the invitation at the door prior to entering the dance. Cadets and their dates were forbidden from entering an automobile at any time during the dance or during inter mission. Young ladies who broke any of the rules would be banned from the campus for the remainder of the school year and the cadets involved would not be allowed at any other dances that year. They would be conned to quarters immediately following Vesper Services until dinner formation for four consecutive Sundays. Parents often would be present on dance weekends. If so, they would be asked to join their cadet son in meeting those in the receiving line. Visiting parents were encouraged to stay at the Park View Hotel, a virtual twin of the Hotel Venice. It was demolished when the present post ofce was built. During World War II, KMI cadets had additional rules. If in uniform and we passed an Army ofcer, we were required to salute, no matter where we were, 1948 graduate Ken Harper said. We were off on Monday rather than Saturday. We would go to the theater on Monday. It was the only free day we had. They wouldnt let us go to town on Saturday because of the rivalry between schools and we were always in uniform (therefore more conspicuous). The discipline at KMI stood me in good stead. It was a great school. Proud of his KMI days, Harper was one of the Gang of Three who led the charge to create the KMI documentary. The other two were Bill Vermilion of the class of 1963 and Roger Cole of the Class of 1958. One of them was on the board of Kentuckys public television station (KET) and we all live up here in Kentucky, Harper said. I suggested that we try to get KET to do a documentary, and they were interested. They (KET) gave us direction and said we would need to get a production company. We raised a little over $100,000 99 percent from alums. The documentary had its world premier last month at the Palace Theatre in Louisville. Our northern Kentucky campus was beautiful but conned, Harper said. In Venice there was very little connement. Because of the documentary, the Venice Archives has more KMI items. Marty McGowen, class of 1965, said he donated practically every bit of his memorabilia to the archives. I was at the reunion in August and got a taste of the documentary, McGowen said. It was very professionally done. I talked to a lot of classmates and school mates. The theme of the school is what it was really all about. We had an honor system. We had a football team in Kentucky and a swim team and basketball team in Venice. We graduated with rank into the army. We were at the tail end of history. Military schools were a Southern tradition. Few, including KMI, were able to survive the anti-war sentiments of the Vietnam era. KMI vacated its Venice campus in 1970 and closed the following year, after 126 years. A list on Wikipedia shows fewer than 40 such private preparatory schools in the U.S. today. Admiral Farragut is the only remaining private Florida-based military school. Sarasota Military Academy is a public military school chartered in 2002 by the Sarasota School Board. There is another public military school in Hollywood, according to information at Wikipedia.

She was born in Dallas, Pa., has a nursing degree and worked as an airline stewardess for American Airlines. Her niece sent balloons, cake, owers and a basket for the celebra tion put on at Pinebrook. Those who have been in a relationship, are in a relationship or are considering a relationship should nd something to relate to in Venice Theatres Cabaret production of I Love You, Youre Perfect, Now Change. Some say love is better the second time around. So is this production, which features Venice Theatre veterans Chris Caswell, Bobbi Eschenbach and Chris Caswell with Larry Alexander, a member of Actors Equity and veteran of Broadway, off-Broadway, television and more. The same foursome was featured in Venice Theatres rst production of this fun show a few years back, although not as many years ago as one would think, judging by the program photos. Directed by Steven Flaa with musical direction by Bobby Brader, the musical backup and still more fun is provided by pianist Jimmy Roberts and utist Cathy Baudrit-Noeth. Consider that the first scene is Cantata For a First Date, featuring the four actors who arrive on the scene dressed as monks, peel down to their undies and then get dressed for the infamous First Date, which, to save time, becomes a first, second, third and eventually multiyear relationship condensed into one short evening. You will have to see for yourself. Quick changes of the set and the costumes speed the show along its riotous path. Theres a serious single man drought, laments Eschenbach. I used to have standards. The scene switches to the movie house, where Alexander bemoans the tear-jerk lm selected by Kollar who sits there wrapped up in popcorn and cola and lm while he grumbles with body English and words until turning into a tear jerk. Scene by scene and song by song, the comedys sketches and songs follow in rapid re succession as topics bounce form dating to weddings, babies, separations, longtime marriages, short-term affairs and changes. Flaas choreography even includes a car with Mom (Eschenbach) and Dad (Alexander) up front and kiddies (Caswell and Kollar) in back. Seated on secretarial chairs, they hold the car together as it moves around the stage and then separate for what seems to be a free-for-all as they weave in and out of each others paths at speed without a single tap let alone a collision. I Love You, Youre Perfect, Now Change continues in the Pinkerton Theatre at Venice Theatre, 140 W. Tampa Ave., through Nov. 24. Performances are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. For tickets, call the box ofce at 941-488-1115 or visit VeniceStage.com.Email: kcool@venicegondolier.com Venice Theatre offers perfectly fun showBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR 480348 On The Island 421 S.

AROUND TOWN 8B WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2013 CONTACT US FRAN VALENCIC SOCIAL COLUMNIST franvalencic@comcast.net SUN NEWSPAPERS Weve collected more than 1,000 pajamas and books in ve years and that makes me proud, said Ann Van Cott. The fth annual Girls Night Out fashion show at the Venice Yacht Club brought nearly 200 people together with pajamas and books for children. It seems pretty basic that children should have a new pair of pjs and a book for a bedtime story. Members of the Venice Yacht Club and friends started the project ve years ago. They donate the items to SPARCC and the Safe Childrens Coalition who distribute things where there is a need. The fashion show and dinner makes donating even more fun as it gives everyone a chance for a little party time. Three cheers and a great big thank you to everyone involved in this nice project.With a song in their heartsIts a lovely day when members of the Harmony Chorus get together. Recently they held a fashion show to raise funds for their local projects, especially a scholarship for a student wanting to pursue a music career. ATu provided the fashions and a boutique before the show. It was clear ladies like to shop. The jewelry table was especially popular. To brighten the season, plan to attend the Harmony Chorus benet concert at Naar Hall on Shamrock Blvd. Nov. 17 at 3 pm. $10 tickets will be available at the door.AccessorizeFashionable women know you can never have too much jewelry. This weekend, the Venice Art Center holds its annual sale featuring original jewelry by local artists. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is free. While at the Center, enjoy the current show.One of our bestThe special person of this week is Heidi Termuehlen. For many years, this nice lady worked alongside her longtime friend, Ruth Kelly, at San Marco Boutique. She loves helping people shop and nding exactly the right outt and embellishments for any special occasion. Since Ruth passed, Heidi continues as a loyal friend. She provides the same wonderful service at the store greeting people and helping them shop. Heidi even sat outside on Halloween and passed out candy. Halloween is something Ruth loved and passing out the candy, Heidi said. I wanted to carry on the tradition for her. Heidi Termuehlen is one of the women who make Venice a great place to live.

November 13 19, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 If you havent had the opportunity to sh a Flatsmasters tournament, I highly suggest you put it on your list of things to do. Every year, I usually try to sh two, the couples and the ladies tournament. This past weekend, the Reel Ladies shing tourna ment was held out of Punta Gorda and they couldnt have picked a rougher day on the water, unless Hurricane Charley was blowing through. Okay, it wasnt that bad, but you get the point. Our mission: ve lady sh and one big ol redsh. After hours of scavenging the harbor, we headed to weigh in with our lady sh but the redsh must have washed out to sea with the tide, or they just didnt like the avor of our bait. Our lady sh didnt weigh much, and we debating whether or not we were even going to weigh them in when we got to the dock knowing we denitely didnt have enough pounds to win. We decided, why not weigh them in and to the scale we went. A whopping 2.53 pounds later, we made our way into last place, (two teams didnt weigh in so technically we had more than them, and that made me feel better). However, what really made me feel better is when we found out last place gets a prize! In order to keep everyone interested, they oer a prize to the last place team so you dont get discouraged if youre not catching much. Moral of the story, sh a tournament. Not only are they fun, but even if you lose, you win! See www.atsmasters.com for informa tion on shing tournaments. Casey Ortlieb Lets Go! Editor If you havent had the opportunity to sh Casey Ortlieb Lets Go! Editor Last night I was at Venice Theatre for the opening of Hairspray, that delightful piece about the early days of rock n roll and a television dance show that captured the imagination of Baltimore teens, including a chubby high schooler named Tracy Turn blad. The whole thing reminds me of the old American Bandstand dance party show aired live for many years form Philadelphia and starred Dick Clark. This variation on the theme is a musical show based on a lm and now it is on the main stage at Venice Theatre through Dec. 8. Call 941-488-1115 or visit: VeniceStage.com. Today through Nov. 18, Sarasota is being transformed into one giant collage of color on city streets for the annual Sarasota Chalk Festival. It is kind of eerie driving on the street after the festival, especially when there is a picture that looks like a hole in the middle of the street. Also in Sarasota, Die Fledermaus continues at the Sarasota Opera House and Friday night is the grand opening of the Asolo Repertory Company season with Showboat. I have met some of the cast and heard some of the songs and expect to be totally wowed! For tickets, call 941-3518000 or visit: Asolo.org. Sunday evening, Venice Theatre will be lled with folks associated with the old Kentucky Military Institute as well as anyone interested in the history of Venice, which one could say was saved by the military school. In 1929, there were 4,000 residents in Venice. As the Great Depression began and Floridas land boom ended, the citys population plummeted to 400. When the KMI moved its students body and sta to Venice right after Christmas in 1932, it nearly doubled the citys population, liter ally saving the city and without ever ring a shot. KMI kept its winter quarters in Venice until 1970. Character makes the Man, a documentary about KMI will be shown at 8 p.m. Sunday at the theater. For tickets, call 941-488-1115.We were the losers, kind of Kim Cool Lets Go! Features Editor This is a week to reckon with Kim Cool Lets Go!

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 13 19, 2013 DINING OUTFor Eric Lagopoulous, the restaurant busi ness is truly a family aair. His parents, Christine and Tom, opened up the Waterfront Restaurant in Sarasota more than 30 years ago. Then, about 13 years ago, its companion restaurant, the Waterfrontoo Grille and Steak House, debuted in Nokomis. So you could say that running the newer restaurant was in the cards for Eric. "My parents rst had a restaurant on Longboat Key in 1979, called The Schooner," Lagopoulous said. "Shortly after it closed, they opened the Waterfront." The Sarasota restaurant enjoys a very loyal local following, as does the newer location in Osprey. Part of the reason is that both spots are known for serving consistently great steaks in an area without many true steakhouses. "We are a seafood and steak house," Lagop oulos said of the Waterfrontoo. "Our two most popular things are our coconut shrimp and our prime rib, which we slow-cook all night." The family also pays tribute to its heritage by including a bit of Greek air on their menu. In the starters section, you can nd saganaki, which is Greek cheese amed with brandy, and Tom's Greek salad is one of the best in town. There is also a traditional Gyro sandwich on the menu and, on occasion, rack of lamb. A comfortable, casual atmosphere makes the Waterfrontoo a great spot for gatherings of all kinds and sizes. The restaurant seats about 250, and there is a back room, where Lagopoulos says he just hosted a wedding party of 150 people. But besides the quality of the food, which includes a nice selection of fresh, grilled sh, the restaurant has a beautiful waterfront loca tion, and plenty of ways you can both enjoy the view and access the location. "We have some great new docks all around the building, so you can get here from Marker 20 and pull your boat right up," Lagopo ulos said. "And we also have lots of outside seating." A patio in the back provides the perfect place to watch the sun set over Casey Key, and the inside bar has large windows that overlook the water, as well. Except for certain dates, Waterfrontoo is only open for dinner, but there are specials every day. Early Bird deals are from 4 to 5:30 p.m., Happy Hour is every night from 4 to 6 p.m., and you don't have to be in the bar to take advantage of that you can also get those specials in the dining room. Tuesday is BBQ Ribs night, when ribs are oered at the special price of $13. Lagopoulos said that the family has a very busy day coming up this month. "We are open at noon on Thanksgiving Day to do a traditional Thanksgiving dinner," he said. "It's one of the top ve busiest nights of the year for us." He said there are a lot of snowbirds who are away from their families and who don't want to cook that big-event meal, but many of the folks who come into the restaurant on Thanksgiving are locals. If your home consists of one or two people, it's sometimes not even worth the trouble of cooking all that food. At the restaurant, they know that they can get all their traditional holiday meal favorites, without having to take care of the preparation or the cleanup. Lagopoulos says, that having grown up here in the business, he understands the value of having that foundation of the locals' support, not only during the holidays, but all year long. "What makes this place special is the family atmosphere," he said. "When you come in here one time, the bartender or server knows your name. We're really fortunate to have the community support we've had."

November 13 19, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 7 DINING OUTSaturday, Nov. 16 from 7:30-11:30 a.m., the Mens Fellowship group kicks o the 41st season for its ever-popular granddaddy of all pancake brunches in the Englewood United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 700 E. Dearborn. The brunches will run every other week through April 5. According to the outgoing brunch chairman, Peter Patrick, We call our brunch the grand daddy because it was a rst that others here and even up north have picked up on. Men as well as women are encouraged to be brunch volunteer workers for a fun, rewarding experience. Last year we served 26,000 all-youcan-eat pancakes that resulted in a $27,862 total awarded to 26 local students for college attendance. A $5 ticket ($3 for children) buys unlimited pancakes, orange juice, and a bottomless cup of coee or tea. This year biscuits and sausage gravy have been added to the egg and sausage, or quiche and fruit side options that are included in the price. Over 10,000 tickets have been sold annually for these unique Saturday morning experiences. Because the men have honed the service down to a science, the cheerful line that forms moves unusually fast. Live music lls the air. Shoppers nd bargains at the boutique of crafts made by the Womens Creative Workshop. The men help stock up cabinets with fresh nuts, grapefruit and honey sales. This year, the churchs farmers market will provide more shopping treats as it runs from 9 a.m. 1 p.m. on the same days as the brunches. Fresh and organic produce and other foods, art, crafts, jewelry, owers, plants and other special items are available there. The vendor fees charged are all donated to missions supported by the church. The Mens Fellowship is a nondenomination group that meets for its prayer breakfast every Monday morning during season. The men have fellowship at 7:30 a.m., a hearty breakfast at 8 a.m. and enjoy a stimulating 30-minute program until 9 a.m. Men in the community of all ages are encouraged to come share this upbeat experience. The men also implement a paper and aluminum recycling project. The public is encouraged to drop o newspapers and scrap aluminum at the collection bins just o the church parking lot next to the Helping Hand building. Proceeds from Mens Fellowship Pancake Brunch and other service projects help fuel Englewood United Methodist Churchs mission as a servant church to the local community. In addition to the scholarships provided, annual direct gifts are made to support such organiza tions as the Florida United Methodist Childrens Home, Englewood Helping Hand and Meals on Wheels.

8 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 13 19, 2013 DINING OUT In 1934, when the rst tiki bar was unveiled in the United States at Don the Beachcomber, a Polynesian-themed restaurant and bar in Hollywood, Polynesia was still a mysterious and exotic place to the majority of Americans. Tiki bars in the states were built as idealized versions of the island theme, with exaggerated tropical foliage and decor to make the guest feel like he or she was stepping into an island paradise. Luckily for Jimmy Von Hubertz, the place he chose to build his tiki bar was an island paradise all its own. Von Hubertz is the owner of the Casey Key Fish House, which is on Casey Key, just over the swing bridge from the mainland. On Saturday, Nov. 16, he plans to have a big party to celebrate the ve-year anniversary of the construction of his tiki bar. It's a large structure, with plenty of under-the-palm fronds seating, and Adiron dack chairs on the sandy beach by the bay waters next to it. But Von Hubertz, who has owned his restaurant for 15 years, says this wasn't his rst tiki bar it's just the best. "I had another tiki bar that was open for four years," he said. "It's a long story, but we ended up knocking the old tiki bar down and having the Seminole Indians build this one." He said that it's probably Sarasota's most authentic tiki bar and he may have a point. The palm-covered roof is held up by thick bamboo poles, and painted tiki gods surround it. Plus, it's hard to ignore the location, which is not only an island, but practically on the water. Von Hubertz says that's one of the reasons locals and tourists, some pretty famous, always end up nding their way to the bar. "People from all over the world come here," he said. "I've had Mayor Bloomberg, Stephen King and all kinds of people sitting at my tiki bar." Now it's time for Von Hubertz to throw his annual anniversary party for the bar, and as anyone who has ever attended a party at the Casey Key Fish House understands, he knows how to do it right. "We are going to be serving free BBQ from 2 to 4 p.m., and I'll have $2 draft beers and $5 drink specials," he said. "I've also got a reggae band called Fyah Wata coming and playing from 3 to 7 p.m. Plus, I've got a bunch of free giveaways." Von Hubertz says that he has these parties several times a year, for various reasons. And he says that he's able to do it because of the help his friends and neigh bors have given him. "The reason why I do this free BBQ each year is because of the overwhelming community support I've been given," he said. "On the day of the party, I expect every bit of 500 people to be here."Casey Key Fish House celebrates five years of tiki bar funBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT IF YOU GO What : The Casey Key Fish House Tiki Bar Celebration When: Saturday, Nov. 16, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Where : The Casey Key Fish House, 801 Blackburn Point Road, Osprey.

November 13 19, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 11 MOVIES Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline are big-name actors with an amazing combined resume of successful and diverse lms. Their characters in Last Vegas, a kind of geriatric friendship comedy, are amiable and watchable. Never mind the predictability its all about the chemistry of the buddy mix. Four lifelong friends meet in Las Vegas for a bachelor party for Billy (Michael Douglas), the one who never settled down. In fact, he is marrying a girl who is nearly 40 years his junior. Paddy (Robert De Niro) is the grumpy widower who has longstanding issues with Billy. Archie (Morgan Freeman) has health issues and an overprotective son. Sam (Kevin Kline) is the one living in Florida, depressed about being old and getting older. But when these characters assemble to party, their charisma lights up the strip. Add to this mix Diana, played by Mary Steenburgen. She looks and acts great in her take of an aging lounge singer living out her dream. Of course, the friends are smitten by her as well as with all of the jiggly Vegas girls. In their weekend blast, they dance, drink, judge a bikini contest, get in trouble and even throw their own exorbitant party. There are plenty of senior jokes about aches and pains, medicines, Viagra and (naturally) senior moments. But Last Vegas is never crude or obnoxious; its more like good, clean fun. As a vehicle for these actors to be witty, it works surprisingly well. In fact, I enjoyed it more than the 2007 lm Wild Hogs, which was amusing for many of the same reasons. In Last Vegas, Freeman is funny, especially in his dancing scene, and talented Kevin Kline is playful in his role. De Niro and Douglas, because of the friction with their characters, have some dramatic exchanges to go with their comedy. Put it all together and its a movie that says a lot about the value of maintaining friendships throughout life. Realizing that, its never a bad idea to do some retro tracking of childhood friends on Facebook. Last Vegas is not a great comedy but its entertaining throughout. Its not hilarious but its witty. And its certainly not the last stand for this cast of very talented older actors. By TOM LOVASKO says...Go! AP PHOTOFrom left, Kevin Kline, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas in a scene from Last Vegas. Last VegasJack Ass Presents: Bad Grandpa | Runtime: 1 hr. 32 min. | Rated R for strong crude and sexual content throughout, language, some graphic nudity and brief drug use. Eighty-six-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, his 8-year-old Grandson Billy in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera. Along the way Irving will intro duce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsus pecting citizens. Escape Plan | Runtime: 1 hr. 56 min. | Rated R for violence and language throughout. Action superstars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger team up in the action-thriller Escape Plan. Ray Breslin (Stallone), the worlds foremost authority on structural security, agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called The Tomb. But when he is wrongly imprisoned, he must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortied prison ever built. Captain Phillips | Runtime: 2 hrs. 13 min. | Rated PG-13 for sustained intense sequences of menace, some violence with bloody images, and for substance use. Captain Phillips is a multilayered exam ination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is through director Paul Greengrass distinctive lens simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad eects of globalization. The lm focuses on the relationship between the Alabamas commanding ocer, Captain Richard Phillips (two-time Academy Awardwinner Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips unarmed ship; in the ensuing stando, 145 miles o the Somali coast, both men will nd themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control. Gravity | Runtime: not stated. | Rated PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language. Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a medical engineer on her rst shuttle mission. Her commander is veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), helming his last ight before retirement. Then, on a routine space walk, disaster strikes the shuttle is destroyed, leaving Ryan and Matt stranded in deep space with no link to Earth and no hope of rescue. As their fear turns to panic, they realize that the only way home may be to venture further into space. Cloudy With a Chance of Meat balls 2 | Runtime: 1 hr. 35 min. | Rated PG for mild rude humor. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animations mouth-watering comedy left o. Inventor Flint Lockwood thought he saved the world when he destroyed his most infamous invention a machine that turned water into food causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes.

14 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 13 19, 2013 UPCOMING EVENTSFor most children of any age, there is no greater thrill than going to a circus. From the smell of popcorn and peanuts to the sound of the circus music to the sparkly costumes of the performers, everything is amplified when you're under that big top. Chris Connors is a ringmaster with the Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars, which is pulling into Port Charlotte on Nov. 20. He says that he fell in love with the circus when he was just a small boy. "My parents were members of the Circus Fans of America (an organization founded in 1926 to promote and preserve the circus as an institu tion,)" he said. "When I was a baby, I had my bottle of milk given to me in Clown Alley from my ringmaster predecessor, Jimmy James." Collins thought he wanted to grow up to be a clown like James was at that time. But when he began to talk about it, James always told him to put school first. So he stayed in school, gradu ating college with degrees in Business Marketing and Broadcasting and Communications. But he clowned on the side, even as he ran through a series of jobs after graduation. "I have had many jobs, but less than 20 years ago, that's when my whole life changed," he said. "I was asked to join a circus full time, but at the time, I thought it would only be for a year." Two decades later, he is a ringmaster and loving every minute of it. He talked about some of the exciting acts that are included in this year's show. "You see a guy get shot out of a cannon and he fires right over your head," Connors said. "Even if you're in General Admission, you have the best position for the high wire act, because they perform right over your head." Xan Kaplan is a lovely aerialist, and performs daring acts high above the ground with silks, hammocks and a lira, which is a large ring. She's young, but has been with Cole Bros. for about five years. She said that many of the circus performers haven't always been involved with the same act they've perfected a few more before that. "I used to do motorcycle stunts," she said. "A lot of the people here show up doing a different act, but if you like to try new things, the circus is the place to learn. As long as you don't let go, you can do anything." By "letting go," she was referring to literally letting go as in the trapeze bar. Kaplan does say she wants to stick with aerial work for a while, though. "People seem to really like watching it, because they appreciate that it's artistic and athletic," she said. "I like that it's kind of like a dance that takes place 30 feet above the ground." If Kaplan feels the same way as Collins, she may find that she will have a home in the circus for quite a long time. Cole Bros. is the biggest circus in the world that's still under a big top, which Kaplan said makes it even more special. "It's a little more magical when you come in under the big top," he said. "We're a very old-school type of show, and we're all out here to do one thing that's to entertain kids of all ages."The circus is coming to Port CharlotteBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT 477697 SATURDAYS 9 UNTIL 4 RAIN DATES SUNDAY 11/17 & 12/1/13 rfrntb bb b nbt rfnnnt r rr rf ff f ntbb ntbb ntbb ntbb ttb ttbttb ttb tb tbtb tb b bb b ttb ttb ttb ttb tb tb tb tb tbb tbb tbb tbb btbb f ff ff ff ff f f f f ntb ntb ntb ntb bbtbbnt bbtbbnt bbtbbnt bbtbbnt 460348 Join us on Saturday, November 16th from 5:30 9:00 pm for the official Lighting of the Village A Community Gathering featuring the Boogieman Band!

18 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 13 19, 2013 THE ARTSThis evening is the rst preview of Asolo Reps season opener, Showboat. Considered Americas rst musical, Show boat was based on the Edna Ferber book of the same name. Music was by Jerome Kern and the musicals book and lyrics were by Oscar Hammerstein II. The original 1927 production had 75 actors and an orchestra of 30 musicians according to Asolo Reps artistic director Michael Donald Edwards. In the intervening years, three versions have received licenses and the approval of the Kern and Hammerstein heirs who keep a careful watch on one of their most important treasures. This latest incarnation of the third and smallest version of the show features 25 actors in the cast and an orchestra of eight. Unchanged is the story. Not only is the boat an emblem of the country but all the actors needed to perform the show represent a cross-section of the country, Edwards said in a discussion about the importance of this shows story and creation to the Asolos American Character Project. The project, which began last year with the musical, , is a ve-year study of what makes America unique. It also is a show that like America has undergone many changes. It tends to reect the time in which it is performed, Edwards said. The cast was assembled from across the country, with some coming from New York and Chicago as well as Florida. Members were assembled by director Rob Ruggiero who directed Ella at the Asolo in 2007, has done shows on Broadway and in many of the countrys top regional theaters. The smallest member of the cast is Lilly Mae Stewart who portrayed Molly in the Players 2012 production of Annie. I didnt know Showboat. Ill study the mate rial, the director said when rst approached by Edwards. In our business, family is important. Tis is a story about a show business family. The family exists for the theater and includes dierent races and dierent classes. The major challenges were to perform it in such a small space at the Mertz, where the Asolo Rep performs most of its show. The Asolo cast numbers 25 which is large for present-day theatrical productions but small for this partic ular show. There are seven African-Americans in the cast. Once he got into the show, Ruggiero made a change so signicant it had to be approved by the Hammerstein Estate. Culled from the original book, the new 10-minute segment had to be presented before Hammersteins daughter and Ferbers niece, Ruggiero said. Those who saw the Asolos previous produc tion of Showboat will recognize the costumes and set but should notice several major changes made by the director and choreographer Noah Racey who also starred in last seasons Noah Raceys Pulse. To deal with the physical limitations of the stage space in the Mertz, Ruggiero said the audience becomes the people at the Show boats levee and the theater becomes the actual Showboat. To accomplish this, cast members will actually perform from the balcony as well as from the theaters main oor. These were not obstacles but challenges, Ruggiero said. Your imagination does wonderful things. Racey too had challenges. He did not want to stop the show for a dance number but to t the dance numbers seamlessly into the show. Im a choreographer but mostly Im a story-teller, he said. Before Showboat people in theater seemed to work in three dierent rooms singing, dancing and scene work. Showboat is the rst time the people in those rooms started talking to each other. It is a joy to play in Robs world. While Ruggiero was new to the show, musical director Wade Russo was described by Ruggiero as a Showboat geek. It was the rst show that showed how the African American culture began to inuence the white culture, Russo said. At times when theaters are cutting corners, it takes a brave man to produce a work like this, Ruggiero said about Edwards and his company. Showboat opens the 55th season of the Asolo Rep. Special programs planned in conjunction with the production include Care fully Taught, a cabaret featuring Hammerstein songs at 7 p.m. Nov. 24 and Family Day gives families the opportunity to purchase four (two adults and two children) tickets for $50, which includes pre-show activities, For tickets to these or the show itself, call 941-351-8000 or visit: Asolo.org.Asolo Rep season begins with ShowboatBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR Treasures (Port Charlottes Hidden Jewel) 1900 Tamiami Trail, Unit#118 Beside Donatos Restaurant (941) 468-6210 (941) 456-2318 Treasures 50461696 Lotela Gold s & s Show band has appeared at the Ramon Theater for the Performing Arts for the past three years.

Hairspray takes me back to my elemen tary school days and the old American Bandstand show featuring Dick Clark. Hairspray, a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical based on a Hollywood lm is about a similar show, the Corny Collins show in Baltimore. The heroine is a chubby high school girl named Tracy Turnblad who hopes to dance her way into a place on the television show. When her dream comes true, so do some other opportunities such as replacing the former female dancing star, winning the aections of the teen heartthrob and integrating a television network. The story is set in the s and is actually based on a Baltimore show rather than the old Dick Clark show, but since the Baltimore show was probably based on the Philadelphia show, many will make that connection instead. Brad Wages directs with local musical theater performer Alyssa Goudy as Tracy. Tim Fitzgerald, in drag, portrays Tracys mother Edna Turnblad. John Travolta played the role in the movie following the Broadway show which followed the rst lm. Syreeta Banks portrays Motormouth Mabel. Hairspray opened yesterday at Venice Theatre where it will play through Dec. 8, with evening performances at 8 p.m. Tues day-Saturday and matinees on Sunday at 2 p.m. The theater is at 140 W.

One day in July, while spotting a museum guard who seemed to be asleep within the entry, I had to stop and see what was in this cheerful pink and marshmallow white building. There was a closed sign but, spotting someone in addition to the sleeping guard, I knocked on the window and showed my press credentials. Both the museums founder Marietta Lee and an associate were present. They were working on the exhibit for the museums 2013-2014 season which began Oct. 24. Lees transformation from nurse and volunteer paramedic to artist/ museum founder is detailed on the museums website. The short story is that she learned from a tragedy that art could make her happy and sharing it with others could probably make others happy too. She went back to school at 32, earned a BA from Eastern Kentucky University and then a BFA from the Ringling College of Art & Design. Working as an artist and enjoying the creation as well as the creations of others, she began to form the idea for the museum. Put on hold for a decade as she cared for aging parents, the museum was finally created in Connecticut in 2006, although it would be a museum without a home until 2010. In the interim, the part-time resident became a fulltime resident, found and remodeled a building and moved all the museum assets and paperwork to Florida. The result is that charming and appro priately whimsical building one passes while heading north on North Tamiami Trail from downtown Sarasota to the much larger Ringling Museum or to see a performance of the Asolo Repertory Company. Like the outdoor art shows that inspired Lee, the museum displays, indoors and outdoors, an enchanting collection of what many would consider the happier art work found at such shows the whimsical items. Most of the art was created in the United States, including the marvelous giant metal flamingos but there also is work in the collection from Asia, Canada and South America. Never forget that guard who may or may not be watching as you check out the whimsical collection within the museum. When you head out back to the sculpture garden, even though he cant see you, refrain from climbing on the sculptures and the Florida oaks that offer shade most of the day. Even the live black bamboo adds a touch of whimsy. If pigs could fly this is where you can find them. The museum is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. through May 31. It is closed on Thanks giving, Christmas Eve and Christmas, New Years Eve and New Years Day, Easter and during the summer. Admis sion is free. Look for the giant orange and pink flamingos. The Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy is at 2121 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.

22 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 13 19, 2013 LIVE MUSIC PHOTO PROVIDEDOri Naftaly and lead singer Eleanor Tsaif of Ori Naftaly, will perform at the Blues and Brewfest in Venice on Saturday. IF YOU GO What : Venice Brews and Blues Festival When: Saturday, Nov. 16, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Gates open at 10 a.m. Where : Between East Tampa and East Venice Avenue, on the Venetian Waterway (Island side). Parking and shuttle service from Legacy Trail Park, 395 East Venice Avenue (o the Island). Info : Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the festival. Buy tickets at www.venicemainstreet. com, Blu Island Bistro, Venice Wine and Coee, Venice MainStreet, Sirena Island Day Spa and Cafe Venice. The festival takes place rain or shine. Bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating and please leave coolers at home. For more information, call 941-484-6722. American blues songwriter, singer and guitarist John Lee Hooker once said, "The blues tell a story every line of the blues has a meaning." He was right. In American culture, the blues have always been representative of tough times, a way to put into music, feel ings that were buried deep inside. But today, blues festivals and celebrations of the genre have become very popular, even though the songs the musicians are writing are just as personal. Some of the brightest stars on the blues scene will be coming to Venice this month for the brand new Venice Brews and Blues Festival, an event that will feature both the music itself and two things that go very well with it, food and drink. "A lot of people really like the blues right now," Venice MainStreet executive director Kat Quast said. "We have six performers coming in that are just through the roof, and on top of that, we have local vendors galore." The musicians range in age from 16-year-old Mike Imbasciani, from the Char lotte area, to 70 year-old blues legend Joey Gilmore. All of the acts have been carefully selected to give the best representation possible of a style of music that means so much to so many people. "We have a band coming in from Israel that is the number one blues band in Israel," Quast said. "They're named Ori Naftaly. Steve Arvey, from the Suncoast Blues Society is helping me to put this on." Five out of the six performers are Inter national Blues Challenge winners. The total lineup includes: The Delta Swamp Rats, Mike Imbasciani, Lauren Mitchell, Ori Naftaly, Selwyn Birchwood and Joey Gilmore. Though the music is certainly a big draw, the other half of the celebration is all about beverages and accompanying food. Quast says that she has a stellar list of local food vendors lined up, including Blu Island Bistro, Brew Burgers, Caf Venice, Sharkys and Tomatillos. The Venice Farmer's Market will also be relocating to the festival site across the Tamiami Trail for the day. "I've got locally brewed craft beers and favorites like Budweiser," she said. "And Cafe Venice is bringing over some wine, so there will be some really good ones there." Every event that Venice MainStreet presents helps to serve their mission of promoting historic downtown Venice, and this one is no exception. Plus, they usually donate a portion of their proceeds to a local cause. This year, they and the Suncoast Blues Society, which is a big supporter of music education, will be donating that money to buy a sousaphone for the Venice High School music department. We had our choice of nonprots looking for funding from this festival, Quast said. But since this is about great music and musicians, we thought it would be wonderful to buy instruments for our area schools. Quast said that she anticipates this turning into a popular annual event for Venice, and hopes that in the coming years, it will grow into something even bigger and better. After all, the more money Venice MainStreet can raise from the event, the more they can donate to local causes. "It's all about celebrating this Venice community and their music and arts programs," she said. "After all, where would we be without music? We'd all be singing the blues."By DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT Venice celebrates brews and blues for Punta Gorda Police Department Do the Right Thing Saturday, December 7th 5 PM On opening night of River City Grill ten years ago, we donated a percentage of our sales to support Do the Right Thing.

Please include your name and city. John Corsos rst drum set at age 5 was a Christmas present from his parents. By age 13, he was playing with his school band and at church events. Music kept my friends and me o the streets and out of trouble, Corso, a Queens, N.Y., native, said. Corso played in various bands, but his career as a master electrician for 34 years and family obligations took precedence. But in my heart I always knew that I would do (play music) what I love again. When Corso retired and moved to Southwest Florida, he bought a drum set from a local music store, met some talented musicians and formed a band. But the band didnt have a name until the lead vocalist, Archer Hamilton, joined the group. We really liked his groovy name, so weve been ocially Archer Classic Rock Band for two years. According to the bands Facebook page, its motto is Loud and Proud Righteous Classic Rock. Inuenced by bands and artists such as Grand Funk, Bad Company, 38 Special and Tom Petty, the band has become popular at many Southwest Florida venues. Less is more, and its not what you play; its how you play it, George Golia, the bands lead guitarist, said. Golia started playing accordion at age 5. After serving in the U.S. Army, he played guitar with various bands in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Colorado and Bermuda. When Golia moved to Port Charlotte in 1990, he played with the John Nelson Band for two years before forming his own rock and roll band, Full Tilt, that performed for 14 years. Im not from anywhere in particular because I was an Army brat, and never lived anywhere for more than three years, Rick Kittredge, rhythm guitarist, said. But since moving to Port Charlotte in 1988, I call it home. As a teenager, Kittredge played with various bands for parties and dances. He performed with Paradox Band for three years in Guam and Hawaii, and with the Inspiration Band in Hawaii. Kittredge has played with various local bands including country bands, Wild Hearts, John Nelson Band, Steel Rodeo, and classic rock bands, Hogfat and Full Tilt. Archer Hamilton was born in New York, raised in Pennsylvania, and grew up in New Jersey. He started singing at age 22 with numerous local cover bands, and is happy as the lead singer with the band that bears his name. This band is truly a blend of very talented musicians and various personalities. Hamilton claims he was inspired by songs of the legendary Eagles and Journey bands. In addition to his love of music, he is a sports enthusiast. He added, Sports by day; classic rock and roll by night. Both require enormous amounts of integrity. The newest band member, bass player, Dave Hasler, hails from Bradenton. I started playing bass in high school because nobody wanted to, but every band needs one. Go gure. Hasler moved to Punta Gorda after retiring from the military, and has performed with many bands. Corso claims that musicians form a brother hood. I still keep in touch with my childhood friends who share my love of music. The bands gigs include: Emils Sports Bar and Grill, Deans South of the Border and TTs Tiki Hut in Punta Gorda, Juniors Lounge, Lock N Key Restaurant and Flounders Restaurant and Tiki Bar in Englewood, MS Rascals Loony Bin and Portside Tavern in Port Charlotte.

Three breathing tests and two lung CT scans have shown mild r estrictive lung capacity and that the brosis is not progressing at this time. Also, fortunately, I am not experiencing any breathing problems. My lung specialist suggested taking 600 mg of acetylcysteine three times daily. He also suggests periodic CTA exams and breathing tests. It is my understanding that at this time, the condition is not treatable. Could you provide your opinion on the value of these suggestions? R.D. ANSWER: I diopathic pulmonary brosis is a progressive inammation of the lungs of unknown cause. Different people will progress at different r ates, and the fact that y ours is not progressing, as shown by the lung CT scans and breathing tests (pulmonary function tests, or PFTs), is very good news. I do agree with y our pulmonologist and r ecommend keeping up with these tests to monitor y our condition. Y our understanding that IPF is not curable at this time is correct; however, it is treatable, and your pulmonologist (lung specialist) is treating it. The N-acetylcysteine y ou are taking has been shown to reduce the rate of progression. Another drug, pirfenidone, has had some benet in trials, as has Viagra and medicines like it. N ot smoking is always important for everybody with any kind of lung disease, and as the condition progresses, many people will need oxygen. P ulmonary rehabilitation improves symptoms of shortness of breath and increases walking distance. The Pulmonary Fibrosis F oundation has much information about this condition at www.pulmonarybrosis.org, as does www.ipftoday.com. DEAR DR. ROACH: My 81-year-old mother-in-law had a biopsy done on a lump in her breast on a Friday. The following T uesday, the doctors ofce called to tell her it is cancer, but she cannot get an appointment with the doctor until three weeks later. No other information was provided. When she called the ofce to get some more information, a nurse just said, The doctor will talk with you at yo ur scheduled appointment. In the meantime, my mother-in-law and our entire family are just a bit stressed trying to deal with the cancer diagnosis and what it might possibly mean. Im guessing/ hoping that it must not be too serious or the doctor would not be making her wait so long. Im just wondering if this is normal to give a patient this kind of news and then make her wait so long to get more information. Sounds kind of cruel to me. I would appreciate your thoughts. G.G. ANSWER: I am horried at this treatment. The diagnosis of cancer is always a difcult one to hear; it is life-changing, and there are many questions that need to be answered. Regardless of how serious the doctor thinks it might be, waiting three weeks to get any information is just wrong. I know rsthand just how busy doctors can get, but you have to make time to have this conversation with the patient and her family. DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband had shingles about ve years ago; when we went in for our u shot, we were both encouraged to also get the shingles vaccine. Doesnt he have immunity from actually having had it? We ar e both 60 years old. J.R. ANSWER: Even if you have a history of shingles, yo u should still get the shingles vaccine, since it is still possible to get shingles again after having it once. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: W ith the holidays approaching, a reminder is in order. P eople: Dont forget those thank-you notes! I dont mean an email, but a real, honest-to-gosh thank-you note sent through the mail with postage. My mother always told me that a gift is not truly y ours until a proper thanky ou has been sent. She said it completed the transfer. I was not allowed to play with the item or use it until that note was written. This is especially true for young people today, who seemingly were not taught this in school or by their parents. Very young children can draw a picture, and the parent can add a line to say it was drawn to express thanks. As the child matures, he/she can use his/her own words of gratitude. I cant tell you how many parents comment on the absence of this display of etiquette. Good manners are never out of date. They are noticed and appreciated. From time to time I have seen you mention y our booklet on How to Wr ite Letters. If it includes a section on thank-you notes, Im sure it would be helpful to a lot of people in the next two months. ELINOR IN SURPRISE, ARIZ. DEAR ELINOR: The booklet does. Not a day goes by that I dont receive letters and emails from r eaders who are upset enough to write because they havent received a thank-you note for a birthday, graduation, wedding or holiday gift they sent. S ome of the writers say they are so hurt and offended that they will stop giving gifts because they were left hanging, wondering if their gift was ever received. The problem may be that many parents no longer insist their children practice this courtesy, so the kids never learn how to do it. Chief among the reasons that thank-you notes arent sent is that many people dont know what to say. They think the note has to be a long, owery composition when, in fact, short and to the point is more effective. K eeping a notepad handy when opening gifts and immediately taking a moment to jot down the rst thought that comes to mind is helpful. (Example: Do you like the color? The style? Is it something you had been looking for and couldnt nd? Is it a special homemade treat? Mmmm.) Wri te it down. While letter-writing or even emailing may seem like a chore, there are times when a handwritten note is the most appropriate means of communicating ones thoughts. My booklet contains sample letters for almost any occasion. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Ab by Letters Booklet, P. O. Bo x 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Inside you will nd many samples that can be used as patterns from which to write your own. For anyo ne who has ever wondered where to begin when writing a note of thanks, offering warm congratulations, condolences, composing a love letter or the opposite announcing a broken engagement or a decision to divorce How to Write Letters is a handy guide for people who put off writing because they dont know what to say. Dear Abby is written by Abig ail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Writ e Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.c om or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. A nd he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
