Smile, Venice. Cameras on way for key areas


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Six digital security cam-
eras have been installed in
Centennial Park by the city of
Venice to deter suspected van-
dalism, and the city has plans

John Veneziano, public
works director, told the city
Parks and Recreation Advisory
Board at its regular meeting on


Nov. 18 that he has plans to in-
stall another four at the Venice
Fishing Pier, with the ability to
monitor those from afar, and
eventually at the South Jetty.

Brews & Blues

Blues fest a treat, for those who showed


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Cloudy skies didn't damp-
en the spirits of those who
attended Saturday's Brews
and Blues Festival in down-
town Venice.
In fact, the weather was
perfect with light winds
and enough cloud cover to
make the outdoor listening
comfortable.
Parking concerns didn't
materialize due to the sparse
turnout, estimated by Venice
MainStreet festival coordi-
nator Kat Quast at 600-700.
Festival organizers were
hoping for 1,000 or more.
"It did actually rain but it
was over before the event
started," Quast said. "It
rained on us while people
were setting up. Because
it was so dry, the ground
sucked up all the water, but it
did clear up nicely and from
(then on) the weather was
perfect."
Seven bands pounded
out hearty blues all day


long. The lineup was excep-
tional: The Delta Swamp
Rats, Mike Imbasciani, Ori
Naftaly, Lauren Mitchell,
Selwyn Birchwood and
Joey Gilmore's band. Blues


Brothers impersonators
showed up to briefly dazzle
the audience.
Venice Police Chief Tom
McNulty said there were no
reports of un-
ruly behavior
and no A


arrests during
the daylong
event.
"Everybody
had a really
good time,"
Quast said.
"Selwyn
Birchwood, I
thought, blew
it out of the
park."
In addition
to guitar,
Birchwood's
raspy voice
was captivat-
ing and his


slide guitar playing brought a
unique quality to the concert.
"We all would have been
much happier had we gotten
the crowd we wanted," Quast
said. "For a first time event,
though, I don't think we can
complain.
"We were up against a lot

Residents unhappy with


plans for rental car lot


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
The Venice Planning
Commission approved a
site plan this week leaving
some residents feeling like an
automobile rental agency took
priority over a historic district.
About 25 members from
the historic Edgewood Park
District, a working class
neighborhood with 32 homes
on the National Historic
Registry, showed up to register
their opposition to approval
of a redevelopment project -
and promised to appeal the
5-2 decision to approve a site
and development plan with
exemptions.
"Edgewood Historic District
was created more than 90
years ago," said resident Terri


Britton, referring to the John
Nolen plan. "It's still a work-
ing class community full of
families, kids, dogs, grandkids
... and cookouts. We cannot
tolerate this commercial en-
terprise encroaching into our
neighborhood. You're trying to
take aWalmart and place it on
a 7-Eleven site."
Nolan designed the neigh-
borhood for working class
families in 1925. Houses were
sold for around $2,500.
Edgewood was promoted
as "a place where the man
of modest means can buy a
homesite within five minutes
walk of the city business
center."

awakening for hundreds of
shoppers who lined up in the

cool, bright sunshine enjoying
complimentary coffee and
orange juice as they waited
for the new Publix Superstore
in Nokomis to open at 8 a.m.


PHOTOS BY ROGER BUTTON
Visitors got a special treat Thursday when they walked through
the door at the Publix store grand opening in Nokomis. Willie
Gravois (in dark suit on right, closest to door), 77, the former
store manager for many years, greeted customers along with
current store manager Heather Sanborn.


Thursday.
Excitedly,
the senior
employees
and crowd
watched as
store man-
ager Heather
Sanborn with
former store
manager,
77-year-
old Willie
Gravois,
jointly cut
the green
ribbon,
officially
opening
the store.


Gravois worked with Publix
for 26 years, many of those as
manager of the original store
from which he retired six years
ago.
The first customer in the
store was Lisa Mineo, who
recalled, "I have lived in
Nokomis two years and I
missed it when it was not
available. I love this new store
and will be in here all the
time."
For Sanborn, who trans-
ferred from the Cape Haze
store, it was a thrill to welcome
customers as they poured
through the doors.
"It's awesome, and I am very
pleased with the turnout," she
said as she constantly handed
out the Publix fliers.
Assisting with greeting cus-
tomers was Kyle McLaughlin,
the assistant store manager.


"I am very excited as I
started my Publix career in the
former store at this location 12
years ago," he said.
This new store is a standard
45,000-plus square foot design
similar to the recently opened
Pinebrook and Laurel Road
location, said Brian West with
Media and
Community
Relations.
The new
offering for
the deli is the

the opening had ..:

"There are 138 served those in

open."

Air conditioning company owner arrested for unlicensed work


By Max Wintiz
WWSB 7
The owner of aVenice
air conditioning com-
pany has been arrested
after investigators say
he had no contractor's
license and hired unli-
censed personnel.
James Sohol, 55, owner
of Air Today in Venice,
was arrested by the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office in connection with
nearly a dozen cases
of alleged unlicensed
contracting.


According to the
Sheriff's Office, Sohol
would obtain prospective
customers by telemarket-
ing, and when residents
were in need of services,
schedule an
^^^^^^_Sohol would
inspection,
which
would
lead to the
installation
of new air
condition-
SOHOL ing units.
Sohol does not have
a state or local license,


and his company does
not have a state certified
qualifier, deeming all
work illegal.
"When you have a
pattern of conduct that
is illegal and putting
citizens at risk, we are
going to make sure they
are prosecuted," said
Wendy Rose with the
Sheriff's Office.
In four of the 11
current cases, Sohol
listed the license of a
New York man who has
no affiliation with him
or his company. All


totaled, Sohol collected
more than $55,926 from
the current victims for
alleged illegal work.
Deputies arrested
Sohol Wednesday
morning at his home in
Bradenton. He is charged
with 11 counts of unli-
censed contracting and
is being held on $275,000
bond.
This isn't Sohol's first
brush with the law. Last
January, he was arrested
and charged with five
counts of Employing
Unlicensed Telephone


Solicitors in Manatee
County. The day after
his arrest, he posted a $9
thousand bond and was
released.
"We have been under
siege by unlicensed
contractor activity in the
last ten years," said Jaime
DiDomenico, the owner
of the air conditioning
company, Cool Today.
"Getting a license is a
hurdle for many people,
so they take the short
cut and decide to do this
without a license. They
are risking the consumer's


safety, if they are not
hiring people properly
and subcontracting work
to move unlicensed
people. There is a risk to
the homeowner."
If you think someone is
acting as an unlicensed
contractor, contact the
Sarasota County Building
Department, the Florida
Department of Business
and Professional
Regulation, or visit:

Guardian program honors Detert


By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER
State Sen. Nancy Detert
doesn't seek praise for the
work she does in the state
capitol. But that doesn't stop
people from heaping it on
her anyway.
Most recently, kudos
came from the Children's
Guardian ad Litem Fund
of the 12th Judicial Circuit,
which includes Sarasota,
Manatee and DeSoto
counties. It celebrated
Detert, a Republican from
Venice, for sponsoring two
bills in the 2013 Legislature
that expanded the rights of
children in the state's foster
care program and allows
them to remain in it until
they turn 21.
'All children should be
allowed to go to a prom,"
Detert said in a prepared
statement. 'All children


should be able to play
with their own team in an
athletic competition. All
children should be able to
get a haircut without the
permission of a caseworker.
'At the same time, let's not
force these kids out if they
need a little time at the age
of 18 to find their path in
life. If they want to stay in
the system until they are 21,
that is the right thing to do."
Detert's legislative
colleagues voted to name
the bill loosening rigid foster
care rules the Nancy C.
Detert Common Sense and
Compassion Independent
Living Act in recognition
of her efforts on behalf of
foster children.
In September, she
was honored by Florida's
Children First and Florida
Youth SHINE, which
advocate for foster children,
at a reception in Sarasota


to which foster youths from
around the state traveled to
thank her.
"Florida's children are
lucky to have Sen. Nancy
Detert working on their
behalf," said Jasmine
Candlish, president of the
Children's Guardian Fund,
in recognizing the local
impact of Detert's efforts.
"Here at the Children's
Guardian Fund we see daily
evidence of how much the
legislation she sponsors
has helped, and continues
to help, those children
unfortunate enough to be
bomrn into families that fail to
protect them.
"Her keynote speech
at our Fall Luncheon was
the perfect reminder that
legislators, donors, educa-
tors and benefactors must
all work together if we are
to achieve the best possible
outcomes for our children."

She has been there longer than the owner


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

How many employees
can say they have worked
longer for the company
than their boss? That is
the achievement of Helen
Wiggins, who is almost 84
years old and retires on
Thursday, Nov. 21.
On the first day of her
44th year, she leaves after
working her last after-
noon shift that day.
It was in 1969 when
she decided it was time
to go out and try some-
thing else, having been
a housewife for 19 years.
Bealls Department Store
accepted her applica-
tion, and she began
working in the Misses
Department at the
original company store


on Venice Island across
from the hospital.
"It's been my life, and
I have been here four
months longer than
Bob Beall, the owner,
as I started under his
father," she said. 'All the
43 years, I have been in
Venice stores. I was born
in Punta Gorda, then
moved to Englewood
when we bought a home
and I still live there."
In the store, which
opened in 1960, Wiggins
was one of seven sales
girls in the department
initially, working 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. six days
weekly. It was 20 years
later before she moved
to Bealls in Venice Village
Shoppes in the location
now occupied by Ross.
Her final move came


11 years later only a
short distance away at
the store that opened
near Target in Jacaranda
Crossings. She remained
on full shift until two
years ago when she cut
back her hours, working
every week, usually four
afternoon shifts.
Recalling one of the
major changes over
the years has been new
technology.
"We started with cash
registers, which could
be hand-cranked, wrote
every ticket and sowed
them on to items," she
said. "If you took a credit
card, you went to the
men's department to
check in the book if it
was invalid."
During those 44 years,
she held responsibilities


as a department head
and then as a supervisor
for 22 years. She admits
her life was not all work
as she enjoyed many
hours saltwater fishing
with her grandson on the
waters of Lemon Bay and
Charlotte Harbor.
"I do know I am going
to miss this as it has truly
been part of my life," she
said. "'It is a big decision
I have made. I think I
am going to try staying
at home for a while, but
I have already started
thinking, well maybe I
should find a job, and
I have been offered a
couple of jobs."
Store Manager Jennifer
Graham said she is going
to miss Wiggins.
"We are very proud to
have an employee with

us for 44 years and so

of Bealls," Graham said.
"That is what you see with

committed to Bealls'


success. She has worked

bers and trained a lot of
executives in the compa-
ny. Her heart is here in

Real estate is improving here, countrywide


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Returning from the six-
day National Association
of Realtors Annual
Convention in San
Francisco, Diane Fuchs,
reports the momentum
throughout the country
is high and the real estate
market is improving
everywhere.
Prices will continue to
rise at a normal pace, she
said.
"We are very fortunate
to live in a community
where people bought
a second home," said
Fuchs, the 2013 president
of the Venice Area Board
of Realtors. "A lot of


areas around the country
are not so lucky. They
suffered worse, but now
they, too, are rebounding
as buyers are coming
back, which is great news
for the entire economy."
While at the conven-
tion, she met with agents
from all over the region,
including Nicaragua and
Canada. At a presenta-
tion, the guest speaker
was Hillary Clinton, who
talked about the positive
impact real estate is
having on the economy.
Fuchs said putting
politics aside, Clinton
was inspiring.
With the year of Fuchs'
presidency of the local
area Board of Realtors


coming to an end, she
is sharing some of the
board statistics, in partic-
ular about single family
housing.
During the month of
October, 141 units were
sold compared to last
year's 110, a significant
increase of 12.80 percent
over the previous month
and 28.18 percent more
than last year. The price
range overall increased
to 15.38 percent from
this time last year.
"This should make all
of our residents happy,
especially the ones who
may need to sell in the
near future," she said.
In regards to the
National Flood Insurance


Program, Florida state of-
ficials and legislators are
in the process of filing a
suit against the govern-
ment. At the conference,
she learned Mississippi
was the first to file and
she was told Florida is
doing the same.
At this moment, there
is an effort to try to delay
this Biggert Waters Act
for four years; Fuchs con-
siders it only a bandage
that will need replacing.
She said she cannot
stress enough that every-
one, not only Realtors,
should get involved in
this issue and do what-
ever they can to lobby to
get the government to
rescind the act.

economic recovery,
especially since


Floridians pay 3.6 times
more than they get
back," she said.

New direction for Ralph's Interiors, now 50 years old


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Celebrating half a
century of service this
year, a well-known
local business is making
significant changes to
enhance its services
with in-store displays
to expand its customer
services, which continue
to be in demand by
customers in Sarasota,
Manatee, Charlotte and
Desoto counties.
"I was raised in this
business with furniture
and fabrics, and then I
started design interiors,"
said Gayle Rector, owner
of Ralph's Interiors at
528 East Venice Avenue.
"Daddy owned the
Buttery Bahama in
Tampa until retiring
to Venice. Bored, he
decided to start a little
business on the island
and from that it grew."


This is a rebirth of the
business, keeping what is
old and yet moving onto
new ground with fur-
nishings, art and home
accessories. Ralph's
Interiors has moved into
the next phase of design
by bringing in Missi
Cooper-Youngblood,
an experienced interior
designer.
However, Rector as-
sures customers that she
will continue offering her
lifelong interior design
services. Maggi Dahl has
been hired as buyer and
showroom manager to
operate the new retail
expansion.
Starting the retail
in-house, appropriately
named Ralph's Retail,
they have introduced dis-
plays of furniture, lamps,
pictures and accessories
in a showroom fashion.
In the past, most of those
items were sold out of


catalogs and a resource
library of fabrics.
Now clients visit, see
and sit on the sofa, then
choose to take it or they
can custom design the
fabric coverings to be
made uniquely their
own. Personalized fabric
designs are available for
a custom furniture line
manufactured by a North
Carolina company that
Rector has worked with
for 25 years.
Design, said Rector,
is about bringing it all
together in your home,
the whole house, living
or family rooms. He
said questions must be
answered, such as, "What
is my wall color?" and
"How do you arrange the
furniture and what is the
window treatment going
to look like and should
there be large lamps or
small?"
Youngblood follows


the process throughout,
possibly preparing
renderings and cad work,
although some jobs do
not require such detail.
Ralph's Interiors does it
all, from small jobs to
working with clients who
have just bought a new
home.
Soon, the center win-
dow display will feature a
queen-sized bed. Rector
introduces bedding,
made to measure; this
will be a representation
of what can be ordered
with beautiful upholstered
headboards.
The store will open
longer hours, Tuesday
through Friday, 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m., and Saturday
mornings, replacing the
appointment-only service.
Rector's son, Scott
has the working end
of the family business,
Suncoast Workrooms.
He wholesales and has

Ralph's Interiors on East Venice Avenue.


continued the long
tradition of outfitting
the Ringling Brothers
trains with cushions,
just as his grandfather
did more than 50 years
ago.
"Ralph's is going
into the uniqueness of
what design is available


without it costing a for-
tune," Rector said. "We
look at clients as people
who are going to be
lifetime friends because
they are involved in our
success for the future,
just as they have been
for the past half of a
century."


Nokomis' Wellness center hires Springs workers


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT
COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR
After working with
hundreds of thousands
of visitors at the Warm
Mineral Springs Day Spa
in North Port, subcon-
tractors Dr. Hernando
Ortiz and Carla Peralta
each found themselves
out of a job in July when
the city's only tourist
attraction closed.
North Port and Sarasota
County jointly own the
81-acre Springs, which
was shuttered more than
120 days ago after the two

governments couldn't
secure an operator for the
day spa. When it closed,
about 44 Springs employ-
ees were let go.
Now, Ortiz and Peralta
get to work together
again.
On Oct. 25, licensed
massage therapists Lana
and Lucho DeVettori
opened Beach Life
Wellness in Nokomis. The
center features massage
therapy, personal train-
ing, acupuncture and
aesthetics.
Ortiz, who worked at
the Springs for five years,
is an acupuncturist, a
medical doctor and a
surgeon from Colombia,
South America. He has
more than 30 years of ex-
perience in both western
and eastern medicine.
According to the Beach
Life Wellness website,
Ortiz has developed a
unique, multidimensional
treatment approach. In a
typical session, he blends
a variety of modalities
into every treatment,
which could include
"Chinese and/or Japanese
acupuncture, Chinese
herbal medicine, Tuina
body work, homeopathy
and Bach remedies."
When Peralta said her
goodbyes at the Springs,
many who enjoyed her
Zumba Latin dance
instruction and Pilates
workouts said they would
miss her. She is now the
fitness director at Beach

Life Wellness.
She assists clients with
weight-loss programs,
one-on-one training and
better eating habits.
Lana is pleased to have
former Springs employees
working at her center,
located at 301 Albee
Road.
"I have followed the
Warm Mineral Springs
saga; it's an ongoing
story," she said. "What a
treasure to have sitting in
limbo but we are excit-
ed to have Dr. Ortiz and
Carla from the Springs
now on our team."
Lana decided to open
the wellness center with
her husband after working
for the Gasparilla Inn in
Boca Grande for 11 years


and starting a small
massage business.
"I knew at some point
I wanted to work with
my husband," she said.
"I closed the massage
business, and then Lucho
and I just (happened) to
find a wonderful space
near Nokomis Beach.
Who doesn't have a
dream of working near a
beach? Our community
healing center is filled
with artwork from local
artists. We have a very
community feeling here."

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


For many, they will be homeless for the holidays


ith Thanksgiving approach-
ing, we couldn't help being
struck by the latest numbers
indicating the extent of homelessness
in the area.
According to a survey conducted
by a handful of groups, including the
Sarasota FamilyYMCA and the Gulf
Coast Community Foundation of
Venice, there were 348 families with-
out a home of their own in Sarasota
County during the first months of the
current school year.
Some 637 children were homeless.
In addition, more than 70 families and
another 156 children were in "immi-
nent risk" of being homeless.
Among the other data points:
Seventy-three families with 127
children were staying in motels,
either on their own or with assistance
from faith-based groups. A YMCA
Schoolhouse Link director said that
was the highest motel population


ever recorded.
Nearly 100 kids were living in
homeless shelters.
More than 60 kids were in transi-
tional housing programs.
Some 343 children and 190
families were "doubled up" living
with someone else. Forty kids were on
their own.
The average age of a homeless
child was 10. Twenty percent were age
5 and under.
National homeless expert Robert
Marbut, who has been brought in
to assess the situation in Sarasota
County, has said the homeless family
problem is most noticeable in South
Sarasota County. The highest concen-
tration is in Englewood, he said, with
North Port second on the list.
Marbut is due to release his
months-long assessment next week.
Along with his survey results will
come recommendations for ways to


handle the problem. The study has
used the Pinellas Safe Harbor project
as a model, primarily to deal with
chronic homelessness. The possibility
of a family shelter in South County
also has been mentioned.
Marbut will make his formal
presentation at 9 a.m. Monday at
the Venice Community Center. It's
significant that the release will come
three days before the national holiday
that celebrates the blessings of family,
home and sustenance.
Throughout our area, community
groups have been out collecting
food and money for Thanksgiving
meals for the needy. Food pantries
are stocking up. Neighborhood
associations are organizing donation
drives. Businesses are donating
food. Volunteers with churches and
faith-based groups are gearing up to
serve traditional Thanksgiving day
dinners.


(A special nod to the End Zone
Sports Grille in Englewood, which will
open to serve free T-Day meals for the
sixth straight year.)
If you're one of those collecting
donations, distributing food or
preparing and serving Thanksgiving
dinners, many thanks. If you're one
of the many who are asked for dona-
tions, please give with an open and
generous heart.
Keep in mind those who don't
have very much, especially the
children in families without a home
of their own this Thanksgiving. With
the Marbut initiative and a growing
community consensus, Sarasota
County residents can have faith a
better long-term approach to the
problem is coming.
Until it does, we know individual
generosity and community action
will be there to help make life a little
better for more of our neighbors.


These are sure signs APWA
.TAND Now A SPECIAL AM\AP-0..
7TO IS"GY SMIT14 WHO HAS
of Viking Apocalypse PASSED EVERY DRUG TEST ALLYAR.


There was a slight scare this
morning as I got an email inform-
ing me that some person named
York blew a horn signaling the
beginning of the 100 days until
the Viking Apocalypse is to occur.
Feb. 22 is the latest end-of-time
date and a very large wolf shall
devour the sun, according to the
email. Apparently, other things
will occur that will not be pleas-
ant, but let's face it, without the
sun, tourism in Florida is going to
take a hit, don't you think?
This got me to thinking about
other signs that could be indica-
tors that the Viking Apocalypse
maybe right on schedule. The
first sign to me is the shrinking
quality of customer service. On
three occasions this past week,
I had experiences that were less
than favorable for a customer.
To this day, not one manager
or owner has instructed their
employees to fix the issue.
Surely over the next 100 days, we
all can coach folks the value of
customers. For those who don't,
the Apocalypse could be real.
Another sign has to be reality
TV, which seems to be taking
over our lives. While it started out
as a novelty, it seems as if there
is not a subject folks will not film
and give air time to. It seems
as if selling homes at clothing
optional places in Florida is an
attention-getter and will make its
reality TV debut very soon.
It seems to me we could
just call our neighbors and all
swap days to visit with a video
camera, film life and then
swap out the films with all of
the other neighbors. Reality
shows without interruptions.
I wonder if America could
go 100 days without the "real-
ity fix" and just pay attention
to the realities occurring in


real life.
Video games have to be
included in the warning signs.
My goodness, the violence,
abuse of women and language
in some of these games is
horrendous. I watched a game
called Grand Theft Auto (the
new one) and was floored at
the crazy stuff that a 10-year-
old kid had control of.
I have to believe if we con-
tinue to allow our children to
spend their time killing, stealing
and demonstrating no respect
to other humans via video
games, our future is going to be
exactly like the scenes depicted
in those games. Unfortunately,
the "actors" will be those kids we
watch play the games today.
Take 100 days and reintro-
duce the video junkies to the
world outside their game room;
it will do us all some good.
Political parties' hatred for
one another has turned into
a struggle with monumental
impact on how we get along as
a country. Surely this has to be
considered as one of the most
serious signs the Viking lore
may be correct.
Gone are the days where
after the election, the President
became everyone's president and
the rest of the political machine
moved to the center to at least
attempt to do what is right by
us the voters. Today, political
parties at their highest levels spin
one attack after the other on the
opposing party, never relenting or
giving up momentum to stop and
think about the American people.
It feels like the Party Line is
the most important thing on
the agenda, right up to election
time. At that point, citizens
become very important as they
punch the ticket. Perhaps we
should lock them all in a room
for 100 days with only enough
food and water for half of them,
create a video game on how to
survive this, film their actions
and show it on cable live and
give great customer service as
we sell both the games and the
television rights.
After the 100 days, if the sun
still shines, maybe just maybe
there would be a brighter
tomorrow.

This is not NIMBY. A caller
to Let Em Have it objected to
a group of 30 neighbors who
are fighting to preserve the
natural look and health of our
Venice Beach. The caller said
we were NIMBYs not in our
backyard. It is true we don't
like the current plan by the
city of Venice to capture the
filthy runoff from our streets
and yards and pour this
polluted brew on top of the
Venice Beach sand in a two-
block-long ditch up to 40 feet
wide and several feet deep.
We agree with the caller that
something needs to be done
to stop the beach closures but
the current plan is solving the
problem on the cheap. There
are ways to solve the problem
for about the same amount
of money that are better both
environmentally and aesthet-
ically than the city's initial
proposal. We want the city
to put a hold on the project
until these alternatives can
be fully evaluated. Wanting
to solve the beach closures,
while preserving the look
and health of the our most
important asset the beach,
is a far cry from NIMBY. For
more information, go to www.
SaveVeniceBeach.org.
Gone to pot. Morgan &
Morgan promote marijuana,
which I believe to be a cancer
in society. Now they're sup-
porting a traitor, a trick to see
which way the wind is blow-
ing, just a cheap job hunter:
Charlie Crist. Any law firm but
Morgan & Morgan. No, thank
you.
Editor's note: John Morgan,
of Morgan & Morgan, is at
the forefront of the move to
legalize marijuana for medical
purposes.
Another story. We read a
lot about the 50th anniversary
of the death of President
Kennedy. Why have we never
read about the death of that
police officer by Oswald? Was
his death any less a catastro-
phe for his loved ones than
Kennedys? Who was he? Who


Let 'em


Have It
was his family? Who did he
leave?
Dearly departed. Why is it
when someone dies, especially
not from natural causes, they
are depicted as such wonderful
people?
Confession. In one of the
other newspapers, someone
actually admitted they were
a tea party lunatic. Right on,
Bob.
Political mode. Did you
notice who Obama threatened
when he wasn't getting his way
on raising the debt ceiling? He
threatened to not pay Social
Security retirees, military
retirees, disability and federal
retirees. Now let this sink in
really well he did not threat-
en to stop payments to illegal
aliens. He did not threaten to
take frivolous benefits such
as Internet access for violent
inmates. He did not offer to
fire some of the thousand of
unnecessary federal employees
that he hired. He did not offer
to cut down on his or his wife's
frivolous gallivanting around
with $20 million already spent
on family vacations. One mil-
lion on a Florida golf outing.
Our money; why not? He did
not threaten to not pay the
senators and representatives or


their staff. He did not threaten
to take benefits away from
welfare recipients or stop the
free cellphones they got. He
did not threaten the bootstrap
programs. He did not threaten
to reduce payments to foreign
aid. He did not threaten to cut
back on anything that involved
base voters. This list could go
on and on and on. This guy is
in full political mode.
Missed it. I just wondered
why Let'em Have It wasn't in
the paper.
Editor's note: Some issues
feature letters to the editor,
some have Let'em Have It.
Not misled. There's a big
difference between a lie and an
untruth. I'm sure Obama did
not intentionally mislead us
about the Obamacare facts.
Insure yourself. I think peo-
ple should be able to pursue
these risky hobbies, but I think
they should carry some sort
of insurance. If these rescuers
want to go get these people,
they could get some money.
This could be a great business.
Be good. I'm calling about
the difficulty of housing trans-
gender people in the county
jail. I know it's expensive for
the county and scary for the
transgender inmates. I can't be
of help to the county if I don't
have a solution, but I do have
a solution for the transgender
folks who are afraid of being
attacked by the other inmates.
Don't break the law. Only you
are in control of your life. Don't
break the law. Don't get arrest-
ed and you won't be attacked
by other inmates. It's simple.
No animals. Don't know if
City Hall in the evening has
all the lighted up alligators
and animals that they had last
year for the Christmas holiday
season, but I sure hope they
don't put them up because I
didn't see one thing that had to
do with Christmas. As much as
I think Christ is the reason for
the season, I would prefer to
see a Christmas tree or a Santa

LET'EM 19

LET 'EM
FROM PAGE 8
Claus or a reindeer rather
than all the ridiculous
lighted animals, whales
and dolphins and all that
has nothing to do with
the holiday. Light them
up in the summer time
or at Sun Fiesta week, but
please, not at Christmas.
I think a nativity scene
would be very appropri-
ate. And if they wanted
to have a menorah, that's
appropriate because it
symbolizes a religious
holiday, or a Santa too.
But please, not the ridic-
ulous lighted animals.
Up close. A guy said
guns aren't the problem.
He said if a man had a
machete or a rock or
a baseball bat that he
could have still killed
them. The difference is
that with a gun, you can
kill from 10 or 20 feet
away. You don't have to
be close up and personal,
as you do with a baseball
bat. Someone could
have tackled him, but
with a gun, he can shoot
anyone who came near
him. That guy has got to
get his facts straight.
Useless. What good are
the restrooms at the jetty
if they're locked, and why
are they inaccessible to
the handicapped? There's
no ramp. Isn't it a law
that they be accessible to
the handicapped?
Missed understand-
ing. Wonder why. Since
the inception of the
Affordable Care Act,
President Obama has
repeatedly announced
individuals could keep
their health care plan


and their doctor, period.
However, after three years
of continued misinforma-
tion from the president,
the public is learning that
millions of policies do not
satisfy the regulations of
the Affordable Care Act.
Wonder why President
Obama's rhetoric failed
to mention the increase
in required standards,
plus an increase in costs?
Wonder why the presi-
dent delayed employer
mandate. Wonder why
the president didn't
mention the additional
16,000 IRS agents hired
and other government
agencies created to im-
plement the law. Wonder
why healthcare waivers
and subsidies have been
issued to unions and
government employees.
Wonder why some people
still don't understand
the fundamental trans-
formation promised by
President Obama.
Misfits. Just read about
this code enforcement
guy who was just doing
his job and the city
charged him with a
felony. City Hall is run
by a bunch of misfits.
Someone needs to get
fired over this.
Editor's note: The city
didn't charge him with a

Congested. I've been
thinking for years that
it is unfair that people
are allowed to take up
squatters rights without
squatting by putting their
chairs and tables and
blankets along the parade
route. It hinders people
getting across the street.
If they're going to do that,


they should do what they
do in other cities, and that
is if you want a front-row
seat, you have to sit there.
Sit there in the rain for a
couple of days and let oth-
er people have an oppor-
tunity to see the parade. I
think the city is too lenient
letting people put these
cumbersome chairs along
the route. It should be first
come, first served, but not
a couple days in advance,
and I think they should
stay with their chairs. Also,
Venice is losing its classy
quaintness by letting store
owners put out their wares
and clothes on the street.
You can't see the pretty
buildings. It's getting too
congested. I think the idea
of the dolphins makes
everything look nice.
Sometimes less is more.
Now the stores are putting
big announcements in
their windows for every-
body who walks in the
store. Sometimes you can't
even see in the door. It's
becoming like a tacky St.
Pete Beach area. Friends
have said thatVenice
island has lost its allure,
and it's just not the same.
Museum worries. I've
been reading a lot about
the new museum that's
planned over byWest
Blalock Park. We own
property in that area and
have concerns about
more traffic in that area.
Saw the plans for the roof
garden for cocktails up
on top of the museum. I
don't think that would fit
in that area. Our family
went into the museum
recently and in the past
there was a box where
people could donate
money. Now there's a sign
that says singles should
pay $3 and doubles


should be $5 to see a city
museum. Free for all these
years with a donation
collection box. It's not ap-
propriate at this time a
city building belonging to
the citizens, and it should
be coming from the heart
that people donate. To
start charging I think is
ridiculous. Also, there
should be more commu-
nication with neighbors
around the center and
maybe have someone
run some numbers on
the traffic around Blalock
Park. Also, bring this to the
attention of the citizens.
Let citizens know what the
plans are.
Kudos to volleyball
team. This is thanks to
Brian and company- to
Venice volleyball coach
BrianWheatley, his
coaches, and his team
and class representation
at the volleyball finals.
I'm sure all of Venice
is proud. It's a great
accomplishment and
kudos to all.
Safety. I find it hard


to believe that the FAA
would allow a large
hospital or a large school
holding 4,500 people to
be built so close to the
end of a runway that
handles jet aircraft of
increasing size. I don't
believe they would allow
a circus arena holding
4,500 people to be
built at the same short
distance. I think this is
sheer insanity, but I am
just one voice. Let's ask
the FAA now! Making it
an historical site doesn't
make it any safer as a
proposal.
Parade blues. I think
interest in the boat
parade has sunk.
Offender notice.
Venice has a low crime
rate compared to many
cities near us. I like to
know if an offender is
living in my area. If a
robber lives next door to
you, would you keep your
doors or windows open?
I think not. Anyhow, if
they're identified, they're

MANIPULATIVE, IN THE
BEST SENSE OF THE WORD
Much of chiropractic treatment involves "spinal
manipulation," a high velocity thrust that chiropractors
deliver by hand. The intent is to move a joint beyond its
normal range of motion but not beyond the range that it
was designed to handle. This has the effect of providing
more room for nerves to exit the spine, relaxing the
muscles by virtue of stretching them suddenly, breaking up
adhesions or scar tissue to keep the spine flexible, and/or
moving displaced vertebrae back in place. To determine
which vertebrae need to be adjusted, the chiropractor feels
the joints of the spine while at rest and in motion. Once the
determination is made, the manipulation is delivered
manually using one of a number of specific techniques.
P.S. Spinal manipulation has been documented as far back
as the time of Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians.

Indians shutout Sarasota Sailors 2-0


STAFF REPORT
The Venice High boys
soccer team regained its
winning record Monday
night, improving to 3-2-1
on the season with an
impressive 2-0 win over
district foe Sarasota.
Venice is now 3-1 in
district play.
The Indians dominated
possession for the major-
ity of the match, creating
numerous scoring oppor-
tunities and preventing
the Sailors from mustering
much of an attack.
The Indians broke
through in the 37th min-
ute, when senior Ryan
McCormack weaved his
way into the box past
two Sailors defenders
and placed a left-footed
strike under the diving
Sarasota keeper to give
the Indians the lead.
Venice nearly doubled
its lead in the 52nd
minute, when senior
Jason McGuire's chip from
30 yards out beat the
keeper but hit the cross-
bar and ricocheted away.
The Indians got their
insurance goal in the 77th

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS BASKETBALL


Ward's late free throws give Indians 41-40 victory


By NATE COWAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Venice Indians
girls basketball team
has a busy start to their
week. With three games
in three days, head
coach Jim Davis knew he
wanted his team to get
off on the right foot.
Thanks to an 11-0
run that included the
game-winning free
throws from senior Taira
Ward, the Indians pulled
off a 41-40 victory over
the visiting Braden River
Pirates Monday night.
"Honestly, I wanted to
cry," Ward said. "I really
did. I struggle so much
with free throws and have
even airballed a few. It
feels good to make them
both and get the win."
Davis said, "Taira is
not a big-time free-throw
shooter, but she stepped
up and knocked down
those two."
Braden River looked to


have put the game away
with three minutes left
when Charity Landrum
hit a three-pointer to give
the Pirates a 40-30 lead.
The Pirates' full-court
pressure had frustrated
the Indians all night,
and a comeback didn't
appear to be in the cards.
That's when Venice un-
leashed a half-court trap
and got four quick points
on steals and layups
from Mariah Miller and
Taylor Angelo. Emma
Hanewinckel scored four
straight points on two
free throws and a layup
to close the gap to 40-38.
"It takes a lot out of us
to press the whole game,
which is why we can't do
it," Davis said. "We just
don't have the legs yet,
so we have to be careful
when to do it and make
sure we're effective."
Miller was fouled with
just under a minute to
go and sank one of two
free throws to pull Venice


within one. The Indians
forced another Pirate
turnover and Ward was
fouled on a put-back
attempt to send her to
the free throw line.
She calmly sank both
shots, and the last Pirate
possession ended with a
pass out of bounds.
Ward, Venice's lone
senior, led the Indians
with 16 points and
eight rebounds. Miller
added ten points and
Hanewinckel was instru-
mental in keeping the
Indians in the game with
her strong ball-handling
and leadership.
"Ward just had a huge
game for us," Davis said.
"She is our only senior
that plays and we feed off
her. She scored, rebound-
ed and even had seven
deflections on defense."
Venice led 7-5 after
the first quarter but the
Pirates used their size and
pressure defense to take
control of the game in


the middle quarters. The
shorter Indians had few
answers for Madison Jaco
and Nesereen Graham,
who each had nine
points. The Braden River
press also frustrated the
Indians and led to easy
layups and turnovers.
"We were getting to
our spots in the press
break but we were over


C
f
m
oc


dribbling," Davis said. "You
have to beat the press by
passing and we have to
learn to trust each other."
The Indians continue
the week by visiting
North Fort Myers on
Tuesday and hosting
Sarasota on Wednesday.
"It's a full week for us
and I'm going to have to
do a good job of managing

More than 100 arrests in 2-county domestic violence sweep


ByADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER

As part of a statewide
domestic violence
crackdown, authorities
in Sarasota and Charlotte
counties made more
than 100 arrests over
nearly a month.
The four-week effort,
known as Operation
Safe Families, was led
by the Florida Sheriffs
Association, and in-
volved the Sarasota and
Charlotte county sheriff's
offices.
The campaign ran
from Oct. 13 to Nov. 9.
Results were released
Friday afternoon.

know how it happens. It
could be vandalism. It
could also have been a
gust of wind."
In response, six securi-
ty cameras were installed
with the ability to record
up to two months of
activity.
"That's a first strike
against vandals,"
Veneziano said. "The cam-
eras can identify anybody
coming and going. If the
camera's are removed,
we'll capture that, too."

cannot use the area's
only tourist attraction on
a regular basis.
"I am fighting for
a discrimination of
our rights when they
closed the Springs," said
Fielder, who, like many
at Tuesday's event, said
they were healed after
surgeries and from other
aliments like arthritis by
swimming in the Springs'
87-degree, mineral-rich
water. "It's absolutely stu-
pid what they (commis-
sioners) have done to us
by closing the Springs."
Port Charlotte resident
Joel Kovacs and North
Port resident Frank
Usherenko were both in
favor of simply opening
the Springs for swimming,
which is similar to a plan
that has been presented
by City Commissioner
Linda Yates.
Usherenko said if
the city and the county
would open the Springs
for swimming only, they


In Sarasota County,
the recent operation
yielded 43 domestic
violence arrests and two
for violating a domestic
violence injunction.
The operation served 11
writs of bodily attach-
ment for those failing to
pay child support.
Sarasota County Sheriff
Tom Knight said his
agency is "committed to
helping citizens feel safe."
"There is always
a better choice than
violence," said Knight.
He also pointed out
reporting crimes "is the
first step toward ending
this cycle."
Charlotte County

The public restrooms
were recently renovated,
making recent damage
all the more perplexing.
The next location sched-
uled for security camera
installation will be the Pier.
Veneziano said he would
like to coordinate security
cameras at the Pier to
serve also as beach or live
"sky cams" so people can
see the weather conditions
via the Internet, and police
can monitor evening and
weekend activity in real
time.
The pier has been a
regular source of com-
plaints at city hall to
the point where a task

could make more than
$200,000 in just five days,
thanks to high demand
and added sales of
annual passes that cost
around $975 each.
"We think it's a good
idea," said Usherenko,
who has been using the
Springs for 20 years and
said people are starting
to get sick again from
not being able to soak
in the water. "I built
a house here (in the
neighborhood near the
Springs), and who would
want to live in this village
without the lake, because
there's nothing else."
Elizabeth Nazarian
brought her three grand-
children to the protest,
including 2-year-old
Alexandra, who was
holding up a sign on the
ground. She said her
entire family including
the grandchildren -
would use the Springs on
a daily basis if it weren't
closed.
Natalia Krimgold, who
visits the Springs from
Canada, said the closure
is forcing people who use
the day spa to go to places


Sheriff Bill Prummell
said he was glad that the
CCSO was one of the 33
agencies that took part in
the project.
"This operation
highlights the issue of
domestic violence across
the state," he said in a
prepared statement. "It
is important that we deal
with these issues so that
families can feel safe in
their homes."
The CCSO made a total
of 76 arrests including
34 for domestic violence
and 22 for associated
warrants. It also served
13 writs of bodily attach-
ment for those failing to
pay child support.

force was previously
convened. The task force
recommended the city
consider closing the pier
at night or charging ad-
mission, but city council
withheld action on those
recommendations.
Veneziano said the
city spends thousands
annually repairing the
damage done by vandals.
The Centennial Park
restroom was just about
to undergo restoration
when vandals graffiti'd
the area, setting back
plans. The vandal was
caught and required
to pay for the damage.
Then, once completed,

like Miami and other areas
around the state instead.
Krimgold first came to
the Springs in 1990 with a
herniated disc.
"What else is there to
do here?" she asked. "This
spring is the best one
for health. It's healed
me, and that's why I've
been coming here for 23
years."
The event was orga-
nized in part by North
Port resident Eric Kotte,
a four-year-North Porter
and Polish-born con-
tractor who has designed
and constructed homes
and other buildings
throughout the world.
He was pleased Tuesday's
rainy weather cleared
in time for the event
and was happy with the
response from the com-
munity and dozens of
drivers who honked their
horns as they drove by
on Tamiami Trail, while
protesters waved signs
stating "Save our health,"
"Open our Springs" and
"Why are you hurting us."

Advocates for an end
to domestic abuse were
pleased with the cam-
paign's turnout.
"We're glad to see the
arrests because we want
people to be accountable
for their actions," said
Kay Tvaroch, the chief
operational officer for
the Center for Abuse and
Rape Emergencies of
Charlotte County.
And the recent num-
bers from Operation
Safe Families may warn
offenders who are yet to
be caught.
"This can be an ex-

safety at home," she said.

agreed the area is already

much room for growth for

but said that was the

"I know this is zoned
Commercial Industrial,"
said Jerry Towery, noting CI
is the highest intensity use
allowed in the city, "What's
nagging (at me is it) seems
we are trying to squeeze
too much into this."
Towery, one of two
votes against the pe-
titions (the other nay
vote was by Thomas
Murphy) said the fact


that property owners
were seeking exemptions
from buffering rules and
requesting double- and
triple-deck parking to
create 60 spaces on the
lot proved his point.
Some didn't buy the
notion that the redevel-
opment project consti-
tuted an invasion into
the neighborhood.
"The Commercial-
Industrial zone runs a
block away from residen-
tial homes. Any time you
have that, it's difficult,"
said commission Chair
Barry Snyder. "We have


trouble every time we try
to do something that is
an infill."
"Both (petitions) are
approved, but I'm pretty
sure this is not the end
of this."
The planning commis-
sion has final authority
over site plans, but it's
decision can be appealed
before city council.
After the meeting,
Edgewood resident
Conrad Meyer confirmed
the group's intent to
appeal.

'Show Boat' sails into hearts of opening night audience


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Here on the Cultural
Coast, one can literally
overdose on opera and
theater on the same
day.
The final performance
of the fall opera season's
stunning presentation of
"Die Feldermaus" began
at 1:30 p.m. Friday in the
Sarasota Opera House.
That evening, the
curtain rose on "Show
Boat," the Asolo Rep
season opener in the
Mertz Theatre at the
FSU Center for the


Performing Arts. Other
shows were going on at
Florida Studio Theatre,
The Players, Venice
Theatre and at the new
Manatee Performing Arts
Center, among others.
Whew!
Launching the second
season of the Asolo
Rep's five-year American
Character study, this new
version of "Show Boat,"
the show many consider
to be America's first
modern musical first had
to win the approval of
the heirs of its creators,
Jerome Kern and Oscar
Hammerstein II.


Directed by Rob
Ruggiero with choreogra-
phy by Noah Racey, it did
that easily for a 2011 pro-
duction at Goodspeed
Musicals in East
Haddam, Conn. (Racey,
who choreographed
the Goodspeed and the
Asolo production, stirred
audiences last year with
his incredible one-man
dance show, "Noah
Racey's Pulse.")
Based on the Edna
Ferber novel about life
aboard a Mississippi
riverboat in the 19th
century, this new version
of the show is everything


a musical should be and
possibly more. More
than the love story of
a riverboat gambler
and the daughter of the
"Show Boat's" captain, it
includes racial diversity,
a family bigger than a
biological family and
economic hardships as
the Great Depression
looms.
In addition to Ruggiero
and Racey, the Asolo's
production features mu-
sic direction by E Wade
Russo and additional
musical arrangements by
Michael O'Flaherty.
Eleven musicians fill


the Mertz with a rich
orchestral sound befit-
ting "Show Boat," which
is said to have had an
orchestra of 50 musicians
when it first opened on
Broadway and a cast in
excess of 75. The cast
is also smaller but still
numbers some 46 on the
list in the program book.
Using that many
performers in the Mertz
space is a challenge well-
met in this production.
Often there were per-
formers in the audience
and even in the stage left
upper box. Such staging
literally enveloped the


audience in the show,
which was further
adapted by Ruggiero for
Sarasota.
Under the direction
of Asolo's producing
artistic director, Michael
Donald Edwards, Asolo
Rep season openers have
tended to be big and
bold musicals, either
Broadway-bound or of
that caliber. Because of
the way this show uses
so much more than the
stage, this production
could well be the biggest
of them all. It certainly

Venice Christmas Boat Parade celebrates 25 years or not


By KATHRYN KLEIN DENINNO
CORRESPONDENT

Venice loves its
parades especially the
Venice Christmas Boat
Parade of Lights.
Do they love it enough
to save it?
Scheduled for Dec. 7
- if there are enough
entries it will begin
at 6 p.m. at the Albee
Road bridge and progress
along the Intracoastal


Waterway, cut in near
the Venice Yacht Club
and then return to the
waterway where it will
sail under the Hatchett
Creek and Venice Avenue
bridges toward its turn-
around spot at the Circus
Bridge.
Ardent fans get out
early to mark their
viewing spots along
the route with chairs,
blankets and, sometimes,
yellow caution tape. They


watch, whistle and cheer
on every boat, from the
tiniest to the largest.
"This is the 25th
anniversary of the Venice
Christmas Boat Parade,
and I'd love to see 50
boats or more entered,"
parade chairman
John Osmulski said.
"It shouldn't be that
difficult, given the fact
there are 100,000 boats
registered in Sarasota
County alone."


Yet, it was proving so
difficult by last Friday,
that the parade was in
danger of being can-
celed. The Freedom Boat
Club has even agreed
to pay for the first 50
applications to help
encourage participation.
The event was created
by Jim Hussmann and
a couple of others in
1989. That committee
overcame many obsta-
cles and the first boat


parade featured 41 boats,
decorated in holiday
theme. The parade has
continued annually with
boats decorated more
elaborately each year,
some with lights, mo-
torized decorations and
holiday music, some live
and some recorded.
Osmulski has been
the president of the
Venice Christmas Boat
Parade for the past nine
years. He's in charge of


organizing the event,
encouraging entries and
orchestrating the boats
the night of the parade.
It's no easy task, but he's
committed to making
this year extra special.
Last year, only 35 boats
participated.
"That was one of the
smallest groups I've ever
had," Osmulski said. "It's
usually around 45."

From heart surgery to scuba diving


ByANGEENEH ADAMIAN
SPECIAL TO THE
VENICE GONDOLIER SUN
Heart surgery turned
back the clock for
Lennox Bramble, the
current utilities director
of the city of Venice.
Forty years ago, he ran
a minimum of 15 miles a
day with his high-school
track team. Then, like
most middle-aged men,
Bramble's regular cardio
routine dwindled down
to the annual ski trips
and afternoon tee times.
By the time Lennox
turned 50, even family
dinner outings seemed
like too much. Due to
his age, he blamed the
regular sudden onsets of
clamminess and sweats
on heartburn.

branch in Long Island.
Frank and his new wife
packed up their belong-
ings and drove across the
plains and farmlands of
the Midwest to New York.
"When I first saw the
skyline of Manhattan,"
he says, "that was it. I
knew I was in heaven."
Frank left Lockwood
Grader to become
assistant comptroller at
Southold (Long Island)
Savings Bank, and three
years later landed a job
as an accountant with
Inmont Chemical in
his beloved Manhattan.
Things were moving pretty
fast, and so was Frank.
Inmont was acquired
by Carrier Corporation
in 1971, and Carrier
was acquired by United
Technologies a few years
later.
Collins went first to
Boston and then to
London to figure out what
to do with a small British
subsidiary that sold
synthetic leather sheeting
to shoe manufacturers.
What United Technologies
ultimately did with it
was sell the subsidiary
for two bits to two Brits,
who agreed to give Collins
exclusive distribution
rights for North America if
he'd set up a company for
that purpose.
Collins quickly estab-
lished Marand Marketing
International Inc. and
was in a business he
would run for the next
quarter century.
That business led
Frank to travel exten-
sively: Pakistan, India,
China, Taiwan and
Singapore in the Far East,
and to England, France,
Germany and Norway
in the West. Strictly for

I never felt like I
wanted to do anything, I
was getting so tired all of
the time," Lennox said.
After two years of
trying every over-the-
counter antacid in his
local pharmacy, Lennox
realized that it was time
to stop self-diagnosing.
So, he turned to his
sister-in-law, a cardiac
registered nurse, who
made him promise to get
a stress echo cardiogram
as soon as possible.
"Being an engineer, I
was able to explain my
symptoms to the doctor
logically by telling him
that it felt like a large
pump was in my chest
that wouldn't stop,"
Lennox said. 'And that's
pretty much what it was.
Within 10 minutes of

pleasure, he also looked
in on Dubai and Nepal.
Eat your heart out, Mr.
Goldsmith.
When he'd been-there-
done-that enough, Frank
and wife Marylyn decid-
ed to retire to Florida.
The year was 2003.
Between them they had
three marriages, eight
children and 16 grand-
kids, and it was time to
take it easy.
"When I first retired, I
was jealous of my time. I
told myself that I wasn't
going to spend it rashly,"
he says. "But after about
two years, I came to
realize that no matter how


being on the treadmill,
the cardiologist found an
aneurysm that was ready
to burst at any moment.
My heart was working its
tail off!"
Within days, Lennox
was referred to Dr. Mateo
Dayo, a cardiovascular,
thoracic and vascular
surgeon at the Venice-
Ocala Heart Institute.
Dr. Dayo immediately
scheduled an aortic root
replacement via Bentall
procedure in order to
treat the enlargement of
Lennox's blood vessels,
which were struggling
to properly carry blood
from the heart to the
aorta.

Patient representative,
listening to any com-

He was asked to sit on

an HWVV board member.


He helped set up HVV

oversaw the operations
of the Elephant's Trunk

the Korner Gift Shoppe,
three HVV-owned and
operated revenue centers.
Twice president of
HVV, he gave speeches

was also the HVV's chief
liaison with the hospital's
Volunteer Coordinator,
Ingrid Tetreault.
Why did he volunteer?


"When you're retired,"
he says, "now is the time
you can think beyond
your own needs and
think about other people.
And you know, there is
enormous satisfaction in
helping others. You do a
job that you like. You pick
the hours and days you
want to work. And you
get all kinds of thanks
and praise for what you
do. Our volunteers all tell
me they have the best job
in the hospital."

ment, time to get away

Committee discusses ways to help homeless families


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

Members of the
Community Alliance
of Sarasota County's
Homeless Committee
took their first steps
Thursday in getting some
of the more than 400
families with nearly 800
children off the streets,
out of shelters and into
affordable housing.
Committee members
received a presentation
of a recent survey by
Sarasota Family YMCA's
Schoolhouse Link
Program that showed
there are 348 homeless
families and 637 home-
less children in Sarasota
County, with another
71 families and 156 chil-
dren being identified as


being "at imminent risk"
of becoming homeless
within 14 days.
Homeless Committee
Chairman Paul Sutton
said the homeless fami-
lies could be called "the
invisible homeless" be-
cause they do not always
want to be counted in
fear of possible repercus-
sions, including losing
custody of children.
"Every homeless
survey is going to
undercount the actual
number of homeless,"
Sutton said. "I think of
all of the groups that we
look at, the children and
families are probably the
ones that are the most
susceptible to being
undercounted. Imagine
the position of yourself
living in a car with your


children and that's the
best you can do right
now. They're not the ones
panhandling out on the
streets ... they're the ones
quietly doing what they
can to get by."
Officials focused on
another part of the sur-
vey that reported 73 fam-
ilies with 127 children
were in motels. Families
in hotels receive assis-
tance from organizations
such as the Resurrection
House and Community
Assistance Ministry, or
simply self-pay.
Jewish Family and
Children's Service of
Sarasota-Manatee vice
president of programs
Philip Gorelick said that
it could cost $300 a week
to house a family at
even the cheapest hotels


around the county. He
said that figure of about
$1,200 to $1,300 a month
could be used for a
three-bedroom apart-
ment that would give
a family a permanent
home.
Sarasota Salvation
Army Maj. Ethan Frizzell
and his North Port
counterpart, Maj. Samuel
Kim, agreed. Frizzell said
it is much cheaper to
move people into hous-
ing over sheltering them,
which has led to county
branches of the Salvation
Army to jointly invest
$50,000 in independent
housing grants over this
month and next month.
The grants are renewed
grants that Frizzell said
allows the homeless to
skip shelters on their way


to permanent housing.
"They can use that
money for utilities or if
their car breaks down,
because what we're
seeing is both issues can
cause someone to lose
their home," Frizzell said.
Different agencies
will bring cases to the
Salvation Army, which
will then review the cases
to determine who gets
the grant funding in a
round-table discussion
format that it also uses
for its disaster funding
programs.
Tina Steele, who
leads the Homeless
Strike Team for the
Sarasota Community
Organizations Active
in Disaster, or COAD,
said she was looking for
affordable housing on


Craigslist in Sarasota
County and saw that
some two-bedroom
apartments in "rough"
areas of the county were
renting for around $1,800
a month. She found a
tiny studio for $500 a
month a price she said
that landlords should
charge for affordable
housing that would allow
some of the homeless to
get off the streets.
"These landlords need
to step up," Steele said.
"Public housing needs
to step up too. When the
people who are in charge
of public housing say
that $1,200 is affordable
rent, you're in trouble,
because that's not afford-
able at all."

Anchor House serves those living with mental illness


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

A center for those
living with mental illness
and emotional problems
that recently opened in
North Port has room for
more clients.
Anchor House opened
in August and operates
under the umbrella
of Mental Health
Community Centers Inc.,
with a mission to provide
support services to adults
with mental illness and
disabling emotional
problems. MHCC, a
501(c)(3) nonprofit, offers
daily programs and activ-
ities that help bring them
into the mainstream.
It's located in the South
County Health Center
at 19503 S. West Villages
Parkway, Unit A4, west


of the River Road-U.S. 41
intersection.
Anchor House is one
of four centers MHCC
has in the area, along
with Prospect House in
Sarasota, Beacon House
in Venice, and Selby
House in Arcadia.
The "Anchor" in the
name is actually an ac-
ronym for Art, Nurturing
Connections through
Health, Opportunity and
Relationships.
Deborah Robinson,
director of Anchor
House, said it is a drop-in
center, with day pro-
grams offering a variety
of activities, including
life skills, education and
vocational training, and
recreational and social
activities for those living
with mental illness.
"They're meant to help
bring them back into


the mainstream," she
said. "We also have an
employment specialist
who will work with area
employers not only to
help our members find
jobs, but also to maintain
them."
Robinson said the cen-
ter currently has between
10 and 16 members
who attend on a daily
basis, but it has room for
growth.
"Mental illness is very
common. One in four
adults has mental illness,
and 70 percent who could
be diagnosed don't go
to the doctor because
the stigma is very high,"
she said, adding many
families have a member
who suffers from mental
illness. "We also have a
family support group.
(Anchor House) is just


a place where they can
come, stigma-free, and
have friends who are
nonjudgmental and
socialize. All the medicine
in the world and doctors
are great, but if (a person)
is in isolation, they're not
healing."
It is a nonclinical facil-
ity. Robinson said interns
do come to the center,
and free, voluntary group
and individual therapy
also is provided. In
addition, Anchor House
offers peer recovery
specialists, advocacy and
linkage to other commu-
nity resources.
To take part, a mem-
bership form has to be
completed by a doctor,
and the membership fee
for Anchor House is $30
per year. Lunch is provid-
ed almost every day.

gram is our members."
Anchor House's hours
are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday through Friday.

Young Marines set new record


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Adding to its list of
firsts, the Venice Middle
School Young Marines
(VMSYM) program
added another one on
Veterans Day. It was the
first middle school mil-
itary academy to march
in the Sarasota Veterans
Day Parade Nov. 11.
Another group experi-
enced a first: The Venice
Middle School band also
marched in the parade
and performed "The
Marine Corps Hymn."
According to a news
release, this is the third


year for the "leader-
ship-centered, charac-
ter-driven" program.
VMSYM remains the first
and only middle school
young marines program
in the country.
The VMSYM program
is open to sixth- through
eighth-graders in
Sarasota County. With
the program, VMS is now
a magnet school, and
students from any school
in the county can apply
to attend.
VMS promotes the
mental, moral and
physical development of
students while focusing
on character building,


leadership and team-
work. It also promotes
a healthy, alcohol- and
drug-free lifestyle.
One highlight of
VMSYM was when Ret.
Lt. Col. Mike Kessler,
national executive
director of the Young
Marines in Washington,
D.C., attended gradu-
ation activities atVMS
and identified the Young
Marines program as a
model for the country.

New commanding
officer
Ret. USMC Major
Michael A. Dubrule is


the new commanding
officer of VMSYM. His
career spanned close
to 24 years with service
in over 40 different
countries in the Middle
East, East Asia, Africa
and Europe, according
to the release. He led
Intelligence collection
teams in the Balkans,
Africa, Iraq and
Afghanistan. His team
helped free American
prisoners of war.
"During his last tour,
he directed Intelligence
Operations in Iraq
and Afghanistan for
Marine Forces Central
Command at MacDill

SHOW BOAT
FROM PAGE 1

thrilled the opening
night crowd.
The story begins on the
levee at Natches where
we meet the stevedores,
the "Show Boat" perform-
ers, Capt. Andy Hanks
(Joel Blum), his wife
Parthy (Dorothy Stanley)
their daughter Magnolia
(Marissa Magowan), a
riverboat gambler named
Gaylord Ravenal (Ben
Davis) and several black
stevedores.
Magnolia and Gaylord
are attracted to each
other but not necessarily
for the same reason.
Among the stevedores
is Joe (Michael James
Leslie) who sings "01'
Man River" about as
well as it can be sung.
Fortunately, the song is
reprised in both the first
and second acts. When


Joe appears in the upper
box at stage left, at least
one of its occupants
was surprised at Friday's
performance but what
a thrill for those seated
in that box to hear that
magnificent voice up
close.
Good as he is, he is
just one of the players
in as strong a cast as has
been on that stage no
easy task considering the
past few season openers,
including last year's
"1776," which kicked off
the American Character
project.
Blum portrays an
endearing Captain who
heads up the Cotton
Blossom family, which
includes his real and
expanded family of
performers and crew.
When Gaylord sings
"Where's the Mate For
Me," and then a duet of
"Only Make Believe" with
Magnolia, the musical's
love story begins and


soon escalates.
In the Cotton
Blossom's kitchen, we
meet Queenie (E. Faye
Butler,) one of several
blacks on the boat. With
Julie LaVerne (Daniella
Dalli), Magnolia, Joe and
the ensemble, she sings
"Can't Help Lovin' Dat
Man." In the very next
scene, Queenie portends
the future in her solo of
"Mis'ry's Comin' Aroun'."
Another side of life on
the riverboat is brought
to the fore when Ellie
May and the boat's other
showgirls perform "Life
on the Wicked Stage."
That was 1887.
Magnolia and Gaylord
marry and move on to
Chicago.
Act two takes place
along the river but also
in Chicago where life
seems to have its ups
and downs for Magnolia
and for Gaylord whose
winning streak seems
to have ended with


his marriage and the
birth of their daughter
Young Kim (Lilly Mae
Stewart, 8).
Highlights of Act two
include Magnolia and
Gaylord's duet of "Why
Do I Love You?" and
Queenie's reprise of
"Misry's Comin' Aroun,'"
plus reprises of "Only
Make Believe" and "01'
Man River." While that
song may be the finest
in a show filled with
musical delights, Joe and
Queenie entertain one
and all with "I Still Suits
Me." This number is yet
another opportunity to
enjoy the many dance
numbers choreographed
by Racey.
Others in the cast in-
clude Denis Lambert as
Frank Schultz, Daniella
Dalli as Julia LaVerne,
Brigid Kegel as a govern-
ess and Brittany Proia as
Kim as an adult.
Despite being a shorter
show than the original


and with a smaller cast of
performers and musi-
cians, "Show Boat" may
well be the biggest show
ever in the Mertz.
The set by Michael
Schweikardt manages to
envelop the audience as
passengers on the boat
and also as eavesdrop-
pers on the Mississippi
levee and later on in a
Chicago boarding house
and at the Trocadero
Nightclub.
Amy Clark's colorful
costumes, John lasiter's
lighting and Kevin
Kennedy's sound design
add still more to this vi-
sually stunning produc-
tion. Kudos to produc-
tion stage manager Kelly
A. Borgia for making sure
everything and everyone
was where needed in
this production, which
literally overflowed the
stage and right into the
hearts and minds of its
audience.
"Show Boat" continues


through Dec. 29 in the
Mertz Theatre in the
FSU Center for the
Performing Arts, 5555
North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota. Tickets are
$28-$75 per person.
Performances begin at
8 p.m. Tuesday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday, Nov. 30 there
will be a special family
matin6e production at
2 p.m. with tickets priced
at $50 for a family of two
adults and two children
(under 18). Additional
tickets for those under
18 are $10 each. After
the show there will be
discussion with cast
members. Before the
show hot dogs, ice cream
and beverages will be
available for purchase.
For tickets to this or
coming Asolo Rep shows,
call the box office at 941-
351-8000 or visit Asolo.

PARADE
FROM PAGE 1

This year, things are
not looking good.
The parade needs
more boats and more
sponsors. The entry fee


for boats is $15 and any
and all donations are
tax-deductible because
the organization is a
501 (c) (3) that funds
youth boating and
scholarships for students
interested in marine
science.
"In the nine years that


I've run this, we've given
away about $80,000 in
college scholarships
for Venice High School
students," Osmulski said.
"We give away what we
can each year, after the
expenses are covered for
the awards and awards
reception."


Boaters will find entry
applications online at
VeniceChristmasBoat
Parade.com.
Potential sponsors
should contact Osmulski
at josmulski@gmail.com.
Osmulski and his
committee want to make
this the biggest parade to


date. No boat is too small
he said.
Viewers will begin to
stake out their spots
along the Intracoastal
several days before the
parade. Many bring
picnics and arrive well
before the first boats
depart. Viewers also may


make tax deductible do-
nations and those could
make the difference.
For information, visit
VeniceChristmasBoat
Parade.com
Those interested in
participating can contact
Osmulski via email at
josmulski@(gmail.com.

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
F, Pass 3NT

EAST
Pass


What call would you make?

A Pass. You have a bit extra in both
points and distribution, but not
enough extra to look for slam and no
room left to show your distribution.
Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

473 KQ532 0 AJ734J3

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

A Pass. The primary requirement
for bidding over an opponent's one
no trump is a good suit. This hand
doesn't have one. Even if we had
some gadget available that would
allow us to show both of our suits at
the two-level, we would still pass.
Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

4J82K530 KQJ764J62

You are the dealer. What is your call?

A Pass. There are some 11-point
hands that are worth an opening bid.
This isn't one of them. Secondary
honors, queens and jacks (also 10s),
are worth more when they are
connected with other honors. The
black jacks in this hand are isolated
and may be worthless.
Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:
4 A K53 VQJ9832 0 346105


Right-hand opponent passes. What
action would you take?

A Open one heart. Some 10-point
hands are worth opening. This is one
of them. Five-five and six-four
distributions with the honors
concentrated in the long suits should
be promoted aggressively.

The bidding has proceeded:

What call would you make?


WEST


A Bid two spades. Many
tournament players use a two-club
bid over the double to show a sound
raise to the two-level, leaving the
simple raise to show a weakish hand
like this. That's great, but we would
still bid two spades even without that
gadget.
Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

* AK 105 KQ 1032 0 K4743


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1NT Pass ?
How would you proceed?


WEST


A Playing transfers over one no
trump, start with two diamonds and
continue with two spades over the
forced two-heart response. Should
this locate a fit, you can consider
slam prospects. Settle for three no
trump otherwise. Without transfers,
start with a Stayman two clubs and
continue with a jump to three hearts
should partner deny a major.

If Wurzburg is not on your list, it should be


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

My whirlwind five-day
tour of World Heritage
sites in Germany began in
Wurzburg, which is at least
a three-day destination.
Years of traveling led to
my own destination-rating
method. Cities such as New
York, London, Sydney and
Rio are five-day destina-
tions. Five days is adequate
to capture the "feel" of a
such places, which all merit
return visits.
Other places merit
one- to four-day ratings,
which is not derogatory
at all. Nor does it mean I
would not want to return
for additional visits.
Wurzburg is the
perfect example. I rate
it a three-day city and
definitely would choose
to visit it again and again
to experience different
aspects of the city. Sadly, I
was there on my first day
in Germany, which meant
I lost the morning hours
to the arrival at Frankfurt


Airport, customs, a stroll
to the Frankfurt Train
Station at the airport, train
ride to Wurzburg and hotel
check-in.
Consider that there are
350 Inner City Express
(ICE) trains through
Wurzburg daily and
goodness knows how
many more at a major city
such as Frankfurt. I had to
be back at the train station
the next morning for a
9:20 a.m. ride to Bayreuth.
I was staying close to
the station, on the 14th
floor of the Ghotel with
commanding views of the
city from my sitting room,
bedroom and even from
the bathroom. The con-
temporary glass Ghotel
tower is a landmark much
admired by its residents,
according to the cab driver
who delivered me from
the train station.
From the 14th floor
I could see the Fortress
Marienberg on a hill
on the far side of town,
the UNESCO World
Cultural Heritage site


Residence Palace, on
my side of the city, the
St. Johannis Protestant
parish church, the city's
"Ringpark" which circles
the city, the Romanesque
tower of the Grafeneckart
and Town Hall and the
Marienkapelle church that
was completed in 1480
after 103 years of work.
Even though I had slept
a bit on the flight from
Charlotte, a quick shower
and change of clothes
helped me to keep going.
Some people like to check
into a hotel and sleep the
first day. For me, that only
prolongs the agony. I just
keep going, go to bed early
the first night and seem to
be acclimated to the five-
or six-hour time difference
by the next morning.
This time I was able to
grab a quick shower and
change of clothes before
lunch.
At noon I was back in
the hotel lobby to meet my
city host, Juergen Ludwig,
who would give me a short
walking tour, past the
garden that rings the city,
past the music college and
to the Residence Palace.
Built from 1720-1744,
the magnificent palace
gives new meaning to
ornate design especially
on the inside.
We had lunch at the
Residenze-Gaststatten,
which features an
ultra-modem decor with
lots of glass. It is on the
garden side of the palace,
offering daily specials
which include soup, entree
and dessert. Following the
lead of my host, I enjoyed
a seasonal pumpkin soup,
crispy pieces of chicken
and a berry-enhanced flan.
As lunch ended, Stefanie
Arz, a history teacher,
arrived to be my guide for
the afternoon.
We began with a tour
of the palace. We checked
our purses and cameras
(photos are not allowed)
and stepped into the
center court, which is


large enough for a carriage
drawn by four horses to
enter by one gate, make a
turn to unload its passen-
gers and exit by another
gate. The passengers, or
guest of the prince, would
then "float up the grand
staircase".
According to Arz, the
risers were especially low
in order to allow ladies to
just barely lift their skirts
while seeming to "float"
from one step to the next.
"They were not to look
around but only to look
toward the prince who
awaited them at the top of
the stairs," Arz said.
That the room is
trimmed with ornate plas-
ter work and magnificent
columns and topped by
what Arz said is the "world's
largest painting" on the
ceiling, keeping one's eyes
straight ahead is no easy
task. According to informa-
tion found onWikipedia,
the ceiling fresco covers
7,287 square feet.
Nevertheless, I practiced
my "floating technique"
and saved the gawking
until we had completed
the climb. Being without a
camera in this magnificent
space could be one of the
most frustrating experi-
ences I have endured. The
plaster work is incredibly
detailed. Coupled with
the painted ceiling by
Giovanni Battista Tiepolo
ofVenice, Italy, the room is
breath-taking.
The ceiling painting
depicts the four known
continents of the 1700s:
Europe, Asia, Africa and
America and includes
many trompe l'oeil
touches. His views of
the continents include
portraits of people
important to those places
such as Native Americans
and some of the founders
of the United States.
One example of the
tromp l'oeil work is a piece
of fabric that seems to
hang over the plaster work
at one spot. Arz said that


Tiepolo completed the
painting in less than a year
with only the help of sons
Giovanni (then 23) and
Lorenzo (then just 14).
He was commissioned
by Prince Bishop Karl
Philip von Greiffenklau,
who also commissioned
the palace architect
Balthasar Neuman. All
told, he was at the palace
for three years because he
also frescoed the ceiling in
the next room one enters
after climbing the grand
staircase and, in the room
beyond that, he went all
out and decorated the
space with columns that
appear to be real marble,
additional ceiling and wall
paintings and still more
ornate plaster.
That room also features
chandeliers with glass
from Murano, Italy.
That room is used these
days for concerts.
There was one other
amazing room on my
tour a glass and mirror
room. Except for one small
piece of glass, the room
was destroyed near the
end of World War II, as was
most of the city by Allied
bombs.
Arz said that efforts were
made to remove the glass
before the bombing but
when that proved to be
impossible, photographs
were taken. The photos
were black and white but,
coupled with the remain-
ing piece of original glass,
were enough for a local
man hired to restore the
magnificent room, which
is only seen on tours of the
palace.
Seeing the palace is a
must.
Yet, even in an afternoon,
there also is time to see
the Staatlicher Holkeller
Wurzburg the former
imperial wine cellar of the
prince-bishops. Built at the
same time as the residence
palace, the candlelit cellar
beneath the residence is
filled with countless gigan-
tic wooden wine barrels.


These days, one can
"adopt a barrel." Arz said
that wealthy people in
the area pay for a barrel,
which is then decorated
with their name or the
name of their business.
Some of these special bar-
rels feature ornate carving,
which likely ups the price
of the sponsorship. Tours
and/or wine tasting are
offered year-round.
Allow 45 minutes to an
hour for a tour and three
hours for a wine tasting.
Arz said it takes one
person an hour to light all
the candles that illuminate
the maze of cellars.
The entrance is at the
back of the palace. Also
behind the palace is a
stunning piece of sculpture
that includes a statue of
Tilman Riemenschneider.
Arz was surprised that I
knew of Riemenschneider,
one of the foremost
sculptors of his era and
long-time resident of
Wurzburg. I had seen his
work at Rothenburg ob
Tober, years earlier on
my first trip to Germany.
Wurzburg is at the north-
ern end of the Romantic
Highway with the walled
city of Rothenburg a few
miles south.
With Arz, I was able to
see the city's market square,
two major churches and
the Main River, which pass-
es beside the city, before
heading back to the Ghotel
for an early dinner and a
bedtime that coincided
with the setting sun.
After an excellent
breakfast in the morning
I headed to the station for
another pleasant train ride
- to Bayreuth.
Bach Days are com-
ing up in Wurzburg,
Nov. 22-Dec. 1. The city's
Christmas Market will be
Nov. 29-Dec. 23.

Exultate, under the direction of Stephen Johns, sang heartwarming renditions of patriotic music like "America The Beautiful" and

Venice celebrates Veterans Day


FRAN VALENCIC
Steve Dixon's voice
was loud and clear as
he stood at the podium
at Patriots Park and
announced, "We are
America. We represent
everything that is
good."
Several hundred vet-
erans, family and friends
listened to Steve and oth-
ers like Danny Bilyeu who
paid tribute to Blue and
Gold Star Mothers. Venice
Mayor John Holic listed
ways veterans organiza-
tions, especially NO-VEL
Post 159, continue to
serve the community


providing scholarships,
sponsoring students
for Boys and Girls State,
providing service awards
and a long list more.
It is always surprising
that someone most
deserving of recognition
is shocked when their
name is called. It is what
happened when Barbara
Miller Vaughn's name
was called as Female
Veteran of the Year. This
lady breaths red, white
and blue and is always
on the forefront of
causes that promote the
well-being of veterans
and the United States.
Loren Pittman was
the Male Veteran of the
Year.
We salute NO-VEL Post
159 for organizing the
Veterans Day at Patriots
Park, and we salute
everyone who partici-
pated, most of all to our
veterans. "Thank you for
your service."


Salute to Veterans
Concert
The best way to
describe the Venice
Concert Band and
Exsultate's joint concert
on Veterans Day is
sensational. Harry Moses
received a standing
ovation after presenting
a poem he wrote with
taps being played at
its ending. Google the
phrase "I am your flag"
on YouTube to see the
presentation.
Bravo to all the
musicians.

One of our best
The special person of
this week is Joshua Rizzo.
This nice man is a police
officer with the Venice
Police Department. He
returned recently from
his second tour of duty in
Afghanistan.
Joshua went to Taylor
Ranch Elementary


School and graduated
fromVenice High. He is
married and has a young
son. He said his little boy
remembered him when
he returned from the
service as they were able
to Skype often. Joshua
lights up when he talks
about his family.
Joshua has always been
a example of a terrific
Venice kid. He worked
hard in school, had
friends and enjoyed the
blessings of life, especially
all the good things Venice
has to offer. His joining
the Army and the police
force show us his spirit.
Like all veterans, when
duty calls, he answers.
Joshua Rizzo is one of the
men who make Venice a
great place to live.

The Last Chapter Coffee House


E/IM'/C/' November 20 -26, 2013


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Usually, when you hear the term "Brew
Crew", it's in reference to a crowd of beer
drinkers. In the case of the group that
meets at The Last Chapter Coffee House
and Cafe on Wednesdays, though, it refers
to a different beverage of choice.
"The Brew Crew is mostly just local
people who get together and talk about


1I


old times;' said Karen Alexander, manager
of the coffee shop. "But they always
welcome in new people, too."
That neighborhood gathering place is
just what The Last Chapter has aimed to be
for the past eight years. Seating consists
of comfortable sofas and cafe tables, and
there is even a fireplace and bookshelves
in the front room, giving it a feeling of
being in a friend's parlor a friend who
serves tasty drinks and light culinary fare

to guests, though.
"We have soups, sandwiches and
salads, which are all made to order and
fresh;' Alexander said. "And we also have
homemade ice cream, made fresh here in
the shop."
And although The Last Chapter has
delicious baked goods like muffins, bagels,
Danishes and freshly-baked scones, what
would a true coffee shop be without
all kinds of versions of the hot and cold
beverages?
"We have lots of specialty drinks, like
mochas, lattes and different coffees and
flavors;' Alexander said. "One of our most
popular ones is the Mocha Creamice, which
is a drink with mocha chocolate, ice and
milk that's blended together."
The shop is open from breakfast time
until early evening, so there are also
some menu items that are a little more
substantial. Alexander says that the chef
salad, with romaine lettuce, ham, turkey,
peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, eggs,
bacon, onion and cheese with dressing
on the side is one of her most requested
dishes.
"Our most popular sandwich is the Little


Miami Cuban;' she said. "It has pork, ham,
pickles, mustard, mayonnaise and sauce,
and is served on pressed panini bread."
The Last Chapter asserts itself as a good
neighbor by offering use of its conference
room, which seats up to 35 people, at no
charge. The only stipulation is that if you
require food or beverages, you purchase
them from the coffee shop. Over the years,
the room has played host to meetings,
birthday parties, anniversaries and other
special occasions.
Alexander says that is all a part of
showing thanks to a community that has
supported them during tough times and
slow seasons.
"All of our personnel are friendly, and we

Myakka Pines Golf Club:
Unspoiled, Olde Florida


When was the last time you played golf in a truly natural
setting? Do you enjoy hitting your golf ball and strolling down
fairways lined by trees and lakes rather than houses and
pools? Englewood is a quiet, rural area, which is why so many
former Snow Birds choose to live here full time. Myakka Pines
Golf Club is Englewood serenity on steroids! In any round of


Pines Golf Club today offers 27 holes of tournament-quality-
conditions, challenging, strategic and fun golf. As a GOLF
CLUB rather than a Country Club, the focus and financial
investment is all toward the golf course. Greens were
reconstructed in 2008 with mini-verde bermuda. Each of the
three nines is different and challenging in its own right. And,
twenty-seven holes provides the flexibility to accommodate
smooth flow on the course by melding tee time and turning
golfers based on which course has the best availability at the
time. Mickie Zada, the Club's General Manager said iWe are
able to ensure excellent rounds of golf time as well as
enjoyable playing experiences.
One of the best golf membership values in the area, Myakka
Pines Golf Club offers an equity membership and a one-year
non-equity golf pass. Private golf carts may be stored and
used at the Club by equity members; one year non-equity golf
passes include golf cart fees. All members receive free driving
range access and handicap system. Extensive practice areas
are available including chipping and putting greens and driving

November Gallery Walk welcomes Christmas early


PROVIDED BY THE DOWNTOWN MERCHANTS
ASSOCIATION
November Gallery Walk is filled with the
Christmas theme. Two trees will be lit and snow
will fall. Be sure to get to the tree at the corner
of Taylor Road and West Olympia Avenue, by
7:45 p.m. for the lighting of the tree. At
6:30 p.m., the tree at the corner of Taylor Road
and Marion Avenue, will be lit. There will be
live music at each tree as well as Mr. and Mrs.
Claus. The tree at Olympia Avenue will also
have a lighted bike parade and an ugly sweater
contest Prizes to be awarded, and the walk
will be better than ever. Here are some of the
happenings around town.
Creations Gallery is pleased to announce that
theywill be pulling Ed Burd from his customary
duties as gallery somelier, so thatyou may enjoy

ulously drawn pendcil creations. Rumor has it that

will demo some small canvas oil paintings of
fall scenes, a grape harvest in Tuscany and a lazy
Vermont riverat fall foliage.
Jim Ellsworth, Sea Grape's newest member, a
wood turner,will demonstrate the assembly of a


segmented turn. He will have pre-cut the pieces
that he will show how he glues into rings and
then will demonstrate how the various rings get
assembled to be ready for the lathe.
Sunart Gallery and Framing always features
some of their artists and welcomes you to come
in and meet them. Phil Bohley, Judy ReHill and
best selling children's author, Jan Britland will be

Months ago, members of Englewood's
Lemon Bay Garden Club began preparing
unique crafts, propagating native plants
and selecting unique gardens to feature
on their Fall Garden Tour scheduled for
this weekend.
"It's a two-day, three-tiered event;'
explained Gail Choate, who has helped
organize and publicize the group's fund-
raising events for the past 10 years. "What
locals and visitors may not realize;' adds
Choate, "is that the club owns a historic
property on the corner of Yale and Cedar
Street, and we open our gardens as part
of the annual tour. Our beautiful butterfly
garden is located on the west side of the
clubhouse, and visitors are invited to stroll
along Woods Walk, view the new cactus/
succulent garden and rest on eco friendly
benches before heading to a colorful
display of bromeliads."
A special "Shade House" built in 1982
allows members to grow plants to sell
during the Fall Tour. In the spacious club-
house members are offering an amazing
selection of unique hand-crafted cards,

DeSoto County has a rich and storied
agricultural heritage, and has long been
the home of hardworking farmers and
ranchers. One of the ways the area pays

nizes and celebrates those from today is
with the annual DeSoto Ag Fest.

gardening with Mosaic and 4-H. And
for adults, the DeSoto County Extension
office will be offering free mini-classes on
topics like canning and beekeeping.
Under the umbrella of the DeSoto
County Extension office, the DeSoto 4-H
is an educational program for youth that
uses a learn-by-doing approach. They
have clubs within the program like the
Beef Club, the Poultry Club and others
that teach them how to raise and prop-
erly care for animals to show, and as a
hobby.
At the Ag Fest, businesses, organiza-
tions and individuals from across Flor-


ida's broad agricultural field will offer
everyone the opportunity to get "hands
on" experience with many activities and
learn how agriculture is connected to
their daily lives no matter where they
live.

osprey and bald eagles, historical middens
dating back 2,500 years and more than 100
varieties of birds, including a family of rare
Florida scrub jays.
Norton says that race participants will see a

they will also encounter quite a few obstruc-

"There are at least 10 obstacles on the

ROAD TRIP GO


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Nothing beats a trip to SeaWorld to get
up close to the park's penguins, sea turtles,
dolphins, whales and more but SeaWorld's
new AnimalVision on-habitat cameras are
great for keeping up with new friends -
especially the penguins in Antarctica: Empire
of the Penguin.
The new on-habitat cameras stream live
video 24/seven to home, hotel room or
wherever you might be with your Smart-
Phone, tablet or computer. You can even
snap a photo while you watch and save it for
yourself or share it via your favorite social
media site.
But as good as this camera app is, a trip
into the park is still the better choice when-
ever possible.
Only in the park can you actually take a
voyage to SeaWorld Orlando's new journey
to Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin where
you can ride through the cold and windy
continent on the park's new simulator. Actu-
ally, there are two variations of the ride. One
is "wild"and geared for those fearless folks
who love thrill rides and are at least
48 inches tall and in good physical shape.
The other is for those who are 42 inches


tall or taller and want a gentler or"mild"
experience. Puck the Penguin will be your
ride guide.
Either way, you will get up close to the
penguins and their specially constructed icy
habitat which is kept at a chilly 30 degrees.
That probably is like constant summertime
for them.
The warnings for"wild" riders are similar
to those at other parks offering extreme
rides. Those who are pregnant, have back
or neck problems, high blood pressure,
are prone to motion sickness or who have
had recent surgery, should opt for the mild
version of the ride. Riders will experience
cold temperatures on both rides.
To get even closer, while in the park, take
the Penguins-Up-Close Tour, where you can
interact with and even touch a live penguin.
There are four species of penguins cavorting
in the 40-degree water and tromping on the
man-made snow in the 30-degree attraction
at SeaWorld Orlando. Four ice machines spew
out 20,000 pounds of ice daily as penguin
keepers distribute 350 pounds of"restau-
rant-quality fish" (according to SeaWorld
Orlando) to more than 200 resident
penguins. Needless to say, the attraction was
especially popular during the record heat of
this past summer.


The area has a new restaurant, Expedition
Cafe, and new Coca-Cola Freestyle beverage
- South Pole Chill, available only at South
Pole Beverages, according to a park release.
There are four breeds of penguins. All are
dressed in their formal best- black and
white but the similarity ends there for
they vary in side and in the trimmings. The
smallest ones even have fringed hair atop
their heads and the king species has a yellow
gold trim. Some swim faster than others
but they all score high on the "cute" rating
machine.

Let's Go!


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

What happens when a group of mature
Southern Belles decide to turn an aban-
doned church into a day spa in Eden Falls,
Georgia?
Sugar Lee Thompkins, the group's
leader, tries to keep her girlfriends
focused, and the results are hysterical.
Veteran actor and director, Ron Bupp,
has assembled a "true ensemble cast" for
"Hallelujah Girls;'," the Charlotte Players
Main Stage production scheduled for Nov.
21-24 at the Charlotte County Cultural
Center Theater in Port Charlotte. "In
'Hallelujah Girls' there's no leading actor,";'
said Bupp. "Selecting an ensemble cast of
six women and two men is like planning a
fine dinner, as characters must mesh and
complement each other."
The play, written by Jessie Jones,
Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten who
wrote "Dixie Swim Club" and episodes
of TV's "Golden Girls," takes place during
the course of a year. As Sugar Lee, actress
Blair Lovejoy attempts to convince the
group that "It's never too late for us to
become the women we were meant to be".
Lovejoy acted and sang in the Charlotte
Players' productions of "Annie;' "Mame"
and "Calamity Jane." A community activist,
Lovejoy is a coordinator of OneBlood and
also president-elect of the Murdock Rotary
Club.
Carlene Travis, played by Sue Strope,
is the Black Widow of Eden Falls. Having
buried three husbands, she's given up
on romance. Strope has appeared in the
Players' "A Funny Thing Happened on the
Way to the forum" and "It's a Wonderful

LIVE MUSIC G O


Bryan Lee to perform at


Englewoods on Dearborn


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


Born in 1943 in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, Bryan
Lee had lost his eyesight and was considered to
be legally blind by the age of eight
But you don't need to be able to see to
develop an appreciation for music. Growing
up, Lee, who will be appearing with his band
tomorrow in Englewood, listened to WLAC
in Nashville and
became enamored
with the sound of
the blues he heard
on the radio. By the
time hewas 15 in
the late fifties, Lee
was playing guitar in
a variety of rock and
blues-rock bands,
and in his late teens he befriended legendary
guitarslinger Luther Allison.
In 1981, Lee and his band opened for Muddy
Waters at Summerfest in Milwaukee, and he
got a chance to talkwith his hero backstage.
After Lee told Muddy how honored he was to
be opening forsuch a legend, Waters told the
youngster,"Bryan, stay with this. One day you're
going to be a living legend:'Those words of
encouragement would become an inspiration to
Bryan Lee throughout his career.
By 1982, he had moved to the blues mecca of
New Orleans, and became a full time resident
Lee's recognition in the Crescent City began with
a long residency at the Old Absinthe House in
the French Quarter. One of the formative blues
guitarists who caught his act was a vouna


KennyWayne Shepherd, whose time sitting
in with Lee's band proved to be a revelatory
experience for him. Many years later, Shepherd
would return the favor by including Lee in his
documentary, "10 Days Out: Blues from the
Backroads."
Lee has been called a "New Orleans Blues
lnstitution"and is also known as the "Braille
Blues Daddy." 'He has even played the prestigious
New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for the
past 26 years, and
)i G Oon Sept 17 released
his most recent CD,
and his first on an
American label,
called "Play One
for Me' Special
ismainguests on the CD
indude blues singer/
harmonica player
Kim Wilson and Johnny Moeller, of the Fabulous
Thunderbirds.
On this tourwith his Blues Power Band, Lee
is making the rounds of the state of Florida, and
will be performing at Englewood on Dearborn,
as part of their Blues Underthe Stars series.
Appearing along with Lee will be New Orleans
native John Perkins, who plays drums in the
band, BrentJohnson on the guitarand Nick Hem
on bass guitar.
For someone who could be considered to be
at a disadvantage because of his lack of sight,
Lee has not only overcome that obstacle, but has
excelled and become a star in the blues music
industry. And that, according to him, is a gift.
"The Good Lord gave me this gift and I want
to share it,' he said.

Sweet Inspirations
"Little Deuce Coupe"(Beach Boys, 1963). Obviously it's a car song and the deuce coupe
is a 1932 Ford coupe. Itfs called a "deuce" because of the "2" in 1932. The song was written
for the Beach Boys by Roger Christian, an L.A. disc jockey and car buff..."Soul Man"
(Sam & Dave, 1967). The song was written by Isaac Hayes after he heard the term "soul,"
which was not popular at the time. It caught on after this hit and was later parodied by
comedians John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.
"Love Will Keep Us Together" (The Captain and Tennille, 1975). A song perfect for this
show biz couple, it was actually written by Neil Sedaka about his long time songwriting
collaboration with childhood buddy Howard Greenfield... "Chuck E's in Love"(Rickie Lee
Jones, 1979). Jones wrote this jazzy pop tune about a colorful character who was working
in the kitchen of The Troubador, an LA. folk club.
"Dance Hall Days"(Wang Chung, 1984). It's mostly a song about growing up and much
of its inspiration comes from the book"Lolita... Somebody Watching Me"(Rockwell,
1984). Even though there's some paranoia and inspiration from George Orwell's book
"1984,"the song was actually based on the writer's incident with a neighborand a dog.



5M(il[? Ma)&
Last week, this musical trivia question was asked: Singer/songwriter Randy Newman
has had album success along with numerous film scores. Name his only hit song, from
1977, that was controversial at the time.
Answer: "Short People.' The first reader to answer correctly was
Brad Marian of Rotonda West.
This Week's Question: Which one of these groups did not perform at the Woodstock
Festival in 1969? Grateful Dead, The Who, Sly & the Family Stone, The Doors, The Band,
Creedence Clearwater Revival.
If you think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than
noon this Friday, and we'll publish your name as the winner with the correct answer in next

Danger of damp hot pad


Dear Heloise: I re-
cently badly burned my
fingers while baking
cookies because I failed
to notice that my hot
pad had gotten damp in
the process of washing
and reusing the cookie
sheets. I knew that a
damp hot pad or kitchen
towel would allow you
to be burned, but I was
working too quickly that
day to notice.
Later, when explaining
to my friends and family
how the burn happened, I
was surprised to hear that
some of them didn't know
you could be burned by
using a damp pad to pick
up something very hot.
The extreme heat turns
the moisture immediately
to steam, and the burn
can be quite bad.
Please let readers know
to watch out for this and
never use a damp pad or
towel to pick up anything
really hot. Bonnie P in
Houston
Ouch! But in truth, I've
done the same thing!
Once learned, never
again. Heloise

Freezing avocados
Dear Heloise: To always
have fresh avocados on
hand, I peel the avocados,
cut them in half and
remove the seed. I put
the avocado halves in
a vacuum-sealed bag
and place in the freezer.
When I want an avocado,
I simply open the bag and
take out what I want. I
reseal the avocado in the

Lynda in Amarillo, Texas
Well, they do sell
frozen avocado, so I
say go for it! For those
readers who do not own
a vacuum sealer, after
removing the seed, press
plastic wrap against the
avocado flesh. Put the
seed back in (to keep
the avocado flesh from
getting mushy) on top of
the plastic and place the
entire half, seed includ-
ed, in a freezer zip-top
bag, Store avocado in the
refrigerator or the freezer
until needed. Heloise

Ranch popcorn
Dear Heloise: I know
people put seasonings or
cheese on popcorn. Not
being a huge popcorn
fan, I have yet to try it. My
daughter puts dry ranch
dressing on popcorn for
her kids. Needless to say,
the family insisted I try it.
It's delicious. I thought it
would make an excellent
hint, since I would have
never thought of it. -

Wife hoping for baby wants

husband to stop using drugs


DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band and I want to start a
family, but until now our
circumstances have not
made this possible. After a
big move and starting a new
business, we have decided
it's about time.
My problem is my hus-
band uses drugs to relieve
stress. I don't feel he abuses
them; it just takes the edge
off after a hard day's work
like a glass of wine does for
me sometimes.
I would like him to stop
taking the drugs while we
are trying to conceive in
case it could affect the baby.
He is unwilling and it makes
me crazy. I have decided
that if he can't do this, he
isn't ready to be a father. On
the other hand, he's a hard
worker, and I wonder if by
asking him to do this I am
being selfish. Please give
me some advice. READY
FOR MOTHERHOOD IN
MISSISSIPPI
DEAR READY FOR
MOTHERHOOD: You are
NOT being selfish, you are
being prudent. According to
Dr. June Reinisch, director
emerita of the Kinsey
Institute for Research in Sex,
Gender and Reproduction:
"There is some evidence
that suggests certain drugs
can attach to the sperm and
therefore affect the fetus. So
the best plan for a healthy
baby would be for the man
to be as 'clean' as possible
before he starts to make a
child. This is because sperm
are produced about three
months before they are
released."
DEAR ABBY: One of my
husband's relatives is filing
for bankruptcy for the third
time. His wife recently
started to receive disability.
I believe they are abusing
the system.
I know she was not
truthful on her disability
application. I work in the
health care field and in
the past have completed
evaluations for disability
claims. I know the only
way she would meet the
requirements would be if
she misrepresented her
current abilities.
Everyone else in the fami-
ly works hard to support
themselves, so I can't
understand how this atti-
tude is tolerated. What has
pushed me over the edge
is they have announced


Dear Abby

they're going to have a
"bankruptcy party." They
have invited everyone over
to enjoy food and beverages
that will be purchased with
a credit card they have no
intention of paying.
I feel an obligation to
alert the disability office to
her misrepresentation. My
husband agrees that what
they're doing is wrong, but
he doesn't want me to do
anything about it. This has
caused a problem between
us because I no longer want
to go to family dinners. I
know if I keep going and
have to listen to them laugh
about using taxpayer dollars
to support their laziness,
I will eventually explode.
What do you think about
this?- SOMEWHERE IN
THE U.SA.
DEAR SOMEWHERE:
I think your relatives are
committing fraud and
that it should be reported.
Disability payments were
meant for individuals
who truly need them, not
those who are gaming the
system. And if you choose
not to associate with these
kinds of morally bankrupt
individuals, you shouldn't
have to. I can see how it
would ruin your appetite.
Shenanigans like this
should be investigated and
the abusers prosecuted to
the full extent of the law.
DEAR ABBY: Well, here
is a new one on me. I was
walking through a Macy's
looking for my wife, and
right there in front of
me was a 40-something
woman in her bra trying on
a blouse! Please tell me is
this the new normal? -
GREG IN GAINESVILLE,
FLA.
DEAR GREG: It's unusual,
but not unheard of- par-
ticularly if all of the dressing
rooms are in use. In order to
prevent this from happen-
ing again, avert your eyes
when you're in the women's
department.


"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee
great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."-
Jeremiah 33:3
All kin of wonderful possibilities open up to us
when we call on the Lord. He truly answers prayer.

Opening lead: Eight of 0

South fell in love with his hand and
bid it very aggressively 13 tricks
are easy on any lead but a diamond.
Declarer wins in hand, draws trump
in two rounds, then unblocks the ace


of spades. He next crosses to dummy
with the ace of diamonds to discard
his remaining diamonds on the ace of
hearts and king and queen of spades.
The situation is completely
different after a diamond lead.
Dummy's only entry is knocked out
while the spades are still blocked. It
looks like the lucky lie of the trump
suit will allow declarer to hold his
losses to two diamond tricks. Can
you see how South made six after a
diamond lead?
The solution is simple and elegant.
South won the ace of diamonds and
then cashed the ace of hearts,
discarding the ace of spades! This
excellent play allowed South to cash
dummy's king and queen of spades,
discarding two diamonds. He still
had to lose one diamond eventually,
but the lucky fall of the trumps
allowed him to make his slam. Well
played!

Cameras on way for key areasLocations: Centennial Park, Pier, S. JettySix digital security cameras have been installed in Centennial Park by the city of Venice to deter suspected vandalism, and the city has plans for more cameras elsewhere. John Veneziano, public works director, told the city Parks and Recreation Advisory Board at its regular meeting on Nov. 18 that he has plans to install another four at the Venice Fishing Pier, with the ability to monitor those from afar, and eventually at the South Jetty. All three locations experience vandalism on a regular basis. Somebody or something knocked off a Centennial Park restroom door and broke the door frame, Veneziano said. It was the last straw. We dont By GREG GILESNEWS EDITORSMILE | 12It was an early Black Friday awakening for hundreds of shoppers who lined up in the cool, bright sunshine enjoying complimentary coffee and orange juice as they waited for the new Publix Superstore in Nokomis to open at 8 a.m. Thursday. Excitedly, the senior employees and crowd watched as store manager Heather Sanborn with former store manager, 77-yearold Willie Gravois, jointly cut the green ribbon, ofcially opening the store. Gravois worked with Publix for 26 years, many of those as manager of the original store from which he retired six years ago. The rst customer in the store was Lisa Mineo, who recalled, I have lived in Nokomis two years and I missed it when it was not available. I love this new store and will be in here all the time. For Sanborn, who transferred from the Cape Haze store, it was a thrill to welcome customers as they poured through the doors. Its awesome, and I am very pleased with the turnout, she said as she constantly handed out the Publix iers. Assisting with greeting customers was Kyle McLaughlin, the assistant store manager. I am very excited as I started my Publix career in the former store at this location 12 years ago, he said. This new store is a standard 45,000-plus square foot design similar to the recently opened Pinebrook and Laurel Road location, said Brian West with Media and Community Relations. The new offering for the deli is the self-service soup bar, which for the opening had four varieties: chili with beans, chicken noodle, wild mushroom and broccoli Vermont. There are138 associates at this store and approximately 20 are new hires, West said. The pharmacy is a new addition for this store, and in January, a Publix liquor store will open.Customers line building for Nokomis Publix grand openingBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST A line of residents waiting for the grand opening of the new Publix Superstore in Nokomis stretched the length of the shopping center and beyond Thursday. Publix served those in line hot coee and orange juice. PHOTOS BY ROGER BUTTONVisitors got a special treat Thursday when they walked through the door at the Publix store grand opening in Nokomis. Willie Gravois (in dark suit on right, closest to door), 77, the former store manager for many years, greeted customers along with current store manager Heather Sanborn. A crowd of nearly 400 protesters carried signs, waved ags and even sang songs Tuesday after noon in an effort to spread a clear and in some cases very loud message to Sarasota County and North Port commissioners: We want our Springs open now. The protest on Tamiami Trail near the Warm Mineral Springs Motel featured people of all ages from as far away as Canada, angry about the closure of the 81-acre Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa, which was closed June 30 by its co-owners, the city and the county, after the two governments could not secure a short-term operator for the property. Several people in attendance, including Anna Fielder and Myra Pergament, both of North Port, said they moved to the city solely because of the Springs, and are angry they Open our springs, protesters demandBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY SCOTT LOCKWOODMore than 400 protesters gathered near the Warm Mineral Springs Motel Tuesday to voice their displea sure about the shuttering of the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa, which has been closed since June 30.SPRINGS | 12The Venice Planning Commission approved a site plan this week leaving some residents feeling like an automobile rental agency took priority over a historic district. About 25 members from the historic Edgewood Park District, a working class neighborhood with 32 homes on the National Historic Registry, showed up to register their opposition to approval of a redevelopment project and promised to appeal the 5-2 decision to approve a site and development plan with exemptions. Edgewood Historic District was created more than 90 years ago, said resident Terri Britton, referring to the John Nolen plan. Its still a working class community full of families, kids, dogs, grandkids and cookouts. We cannot tolerate this commercial enterprise encroaching into our neighborhood. Youre trying to take a Walmart and place it on a 7-Eleven site. Nolan designed the neighborhood for working class families in 1925. Houses were sold for around $2,500. Edgewood was promoted as a place where the man of modest means can buy a homesite within ve minutes walk of the city business center. Budget Car Rental, on the corner of U.S. 41 and Laurel Residents unhappy with plans for rental car lotBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR UNHAPPY | 12 PUBLIX | 12 PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FENNELLEvent headliner Joey Gilmore belts out the blues at the rst Brews and Blues Festival held Saturday in Venice. Cloudy skies didnt dampen the spirits of those who attended Saturdays Brews and Blues Festival in downtown Venice. In fact, the weather was perfect with light winds and enough cloud cover to make the outdoor listening comfortable. Parking concerns didnt materialize due to the sparse turnout, estimated by Venice MainStreet festival coordinator Kat Quast at 600-700. Festival organizers were hoping for 1,000 or more. It did actually rain but it was over before the event started, Quast said. It rained on us while people were setting up. Because it was so dry, the ground sucked up all the water, but it did clear up nicely and from (then on) the weather was perfect. Seven bands pounded out hearty blues all day long. The lineup was exceptional: The Delta Swamp Rats, Mike Imbasciani, Ori Naftaly, Lauren Mitchell, Selwyn Birchwood and Joey Gilmores band. Blues Brothers impersonators showed up to briey dazzle the audience. Venice Police Chief Tom McNulty said there were no reports of unruly behavior and no arrests during the daylong event. Everybody had a really good time, Quast said. Selwyn Birchwood, I thought, blew it out of the park. In addition to guitar, Birchwoods raspy voice was captivating and his slide guitar playing brought a unique quality to the concert. We all would have been much happier had we gotten the crowd we wanted, Quast said. For a rst time event, though, I dont think we can complain.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A The owner of a Venice air conditioning company has been arrested after investigators say he had no contractors license and hired unlicensed personnel. James Sohol, 55, owner of Air Today in Venice, was arrested by the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce in connection with nearly a dozen cases of alleged unlicensed contracting. According to the Sheriffs Ofce, Sohol would obtain prospective customers by telemarketing, and when residents were in need of services, Sohol would schedule an inspection, which would lead to the installation of new air conditioning units. Sohol does not have a state or local license, and his company does not have a state certied qualier, deeming all work illegal. When you have a pattern of conduct that is illegal and putting citizens at risk, we are going to make sure they are prosecuted, said Wendy Rose with the Sheriffs Ofce. In four of the 11 current cases, Sohol listed the license of a New York man who has no afliation with him or his company. All totaled, Sohol collected more than $55,926 from the current victims for alleged illegal work. Deputies arrested Sohol Wednesday morning at his home in Bradenton. He is charged with 11 counts of unlicensed contracting and is being held on $275,000 bond. This isnt Sohols rst brush with the law. Last January, he was arrested and charged with ve counts of Employing Unlicensed Telephone Solicitors in Manatee County. The day after his arrest, he posted a $9 thousand bond and was released. We have been under siege by unlicensed contractor activity in the last ten years, said Jaime DiDomenico, the owner of the air conditioning company, Cool Today. Getting a license is a hurdle for many people, so they take the short cut and decide to do this without a license. They are risking the consumers safety, if they are not hiring people properly and subcontracting work to move unlicensed people. There is a risk to the homeowner. If you think someone is acting as an unlicensed contractor, contact the Sarasota County Building Department, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, or visit: https://www.scgov.net/ DevelopmentServices/ Pages/Contractor Licensing.aspx.Air conditioning company owner arrested for unlicensed workBy Max WintizWWSB 7 SOHOLState Sen. Nancy Detert doesnt seek praise for the work she does in the state capitol. But that doesnt stop people from heaping it on her anyway. Most recently, kudos came from the Childrens Guardian ad Litem Fund of the 12th Judicial Circuit, which includes Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties. It celebrated Detert, a Republican from Venice, for sponsoring two bills in the 2013 Legislature that expanded the rights of children in the states foster care program and allows them to remain in it until they turn 21. All children should be allowed to go to a prom, Detert said in a prepared statement. All children should be able to play with their own team in an athletic competition. All children should be able to get a haircut without the permission of a caseworker. At the same time, lets not force these kids out if they need a little time at the age of 18 to nd their path in life. If they want to stay in the system until they are 21, that is the right thing to do. Deterts legislative colleagues voted to name the bill loosening rigid foster care rules the Nancy C. Detert Common Sense and Compassion Independent Living Act in recognition of her efforts on behalf of foster children. In September, she was honored by Floridas Children First and Florida Youth SHINE, which advocate for foster children, at a reception in Sarasota to which foster youths from around the state traveled to thank her. Floridas children are lucky to have Sen. Nancy Detert working on their behalf, said Jasmine Candlish, president of the Childrens Guardian Fund, in recognizing the local impact of Deterts efforts. Here at the Childrens Guardian Fund we see daily evidence of how much the legislation she sponsors has helped, and continues to help, those children unfortunate enough to be born into families that fail to protect them. Her keynote speech at our Fall Luncheon was the perfect reminder that legislators, donors, educators and benefactors must all work together if we are to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children.Guardian program honors DetertBy BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITER 20 years and counting SUN PHOTOS BY BOB MUDGESteven Armstrong, left, Venice Fire Department battalion chief and EMT, chats with Mayor John Holic prior to being recognized for 20 years of service during last weeks City Council meeting.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A Two people were arrested this week for selling crack cocaine to undercover deputies near a church. According to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce: Undercover detectives made the crack purchases just down the road from the Johnson Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, located at 506 Church Street in Laurel, more than three months ago. On Aug. 2, Arthur Lee Davis allegedly sold detectives a quantity of rock cocaine for $60 outside his home in the 600 block of Church Street; on the same day Sandra D. McRae allegedly sold detectives rock cocaine in exchange for $7 at the intersection of Church Street and Turner Street. McRae, 51, 300 block of Patton St., Laurel, and Davis, 63, were arrested Nov. 18 and charged with sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of house of worship. Bond was set at $50,000.Not making upA man invited a woman over to try to make up but she punched him instead. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Office report: Lisa Makar was invited over to her husbands house (they live separately). She went because he agreed to give her some of the possessions that were in the house. When she got there, he started talking about getting back together. When she told him she was not interested, he got irate, she said. He said she punched him, unprovoked, with a closed st in the chest. Makar, 47, of Cypress Road, Venice, was charged with battery. There was no bond.No injuries in crash with school busCharges are pending over a minor crash involving a Sarasota County school bus, driven by an Osprey woman. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Pamela Hague, 44, was making a left turn onto Kilpatrick Road from Orange Grove Avenue in Sarasota on Nov. 15 when the bus struck the left side of a Ford Taurus, driven by a Venice woman. There were 19 high school students on the bus, but no injuries were reported.Hit and run reportedThe Florida Highway Patrol is looking for a white Ford F-150 pickup that swayed into trafc, nearly hitting a motor cycle driven by a Venice man. According to author ities, the pickup ran a red light traveling westbound on University Parkway on Nov. 17 at 9:30 a.m., then swerved into another lane. The driver of the motorcycle took evasive action by laying the vehicle over on its left side. The pickup continued on without stopping. Anyone with information on the Ford F-150 should contact FHP at 941-751-8355.Click It campaign underwayTo ensure a safe, happy holiday and encourage safe driving habits, the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce is participating in the Click It or Ticket campaign beginning this week until Dec. 1. The risk of being involved in a serious or deadly car crash increases when the number of cars on the road increases, and the long Thanksgiving weekend is one of the busiest travel times of the year, Sheriff Tom Knight said. So we want to remind everyone that your seat belts can save your life and those you are traveling with. According to the U.S. Department of Transportations National Highway Trafc Safety Administration, 249 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in motor vehicle trafc crashes nationwide during the 2011 Thanksgiving holiday. Fifty percent of those killed were not wearing seat belts. The Venice Police Department reported the following arrests: Mark Anthony Brown, 33, 200 block S.R. 45, Venice.

BUSINESS MATTERSCONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 6A WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20, 2013 Returning from the sixday National Association of Realtors Annual Convention in San Francisco, Diane Fuchs, reports the momentum throughout the country is high and the real estate market is improving everywhere. Prices will continue to rise at a normal pace, she said. We are very fortunate to live in a community where people bought a second home, said Fuchs, the 2013 president of the Venice Area Board of Realtors. A lot of areas around the country are not so lucky. They suffered worse, but now they, too, are rebounding as buyers are coming back, which is great news for the entire economy. While at the convention, she met with agents from all over the region, including Nicaragua and Canada. At a presentation, the guest speaker was Hillary Clinton, who talked about the positive impact real estate is having on the economy. Fuchs said putting politics aside, Clinton was inspiring. With the year of Fuchs presidency of the local area Board of Realtors coming to an end, she is sharing some of the board statistics, in particular about single family housing. During the month of October, 141 units were sold compared to last years 110, a signicant increase of 12.80 percent over the previous month and 28.18 percent more than last year. The price range overall increased to 15.38 percent from this time last year. This should make all of our residents happy, especially the ones who may need to sell in the near future, she said. In regards to the National Flood Insurance Program, Florida state ofcials and legislators are in the process of ling a suit against the government. At the conference, she learned Mississippi was the rst to le and she was told Florida is doing the same. At this moment, there is an effort to try to delay this Biggert Waters Act for four years; Fuchs con siders it only a bandage that will need replacing. She said she cannot stress enough that every one, not only Realtors, should get involved in this issue and do whatever they can to lobby to get the government to rescind the act. It is crucial to our economic recovery, especially since Floridians pay 3.6 times more than they get back, she said. How many employees can say they have worked longer for the company than their boss? That is the achievement of Helen Wiggins, who is almost 84 years old and retires on Thursday, Nov. 21. On the rst day of her 44th year, she leaves after working her last after noon shift that day. It was in 1969 when she decided it was time to go out and try something else, having been a housewife for 19 years. Bealls Department Store accepted her application, and she began working in the Misses Department at the original company store on Venice Island across from the hospital. Its been my life, and I have been here four months longer than Bob Beall, the owner, as I started under his father, she said. All the 43 years, I have been in Venice stores. I was born in Punta Gorda, then moved to Englewood when we bought a home and I still live there. In the store, which opened in 1960, Wiggins was one of seven sales girls in the department initially, working 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. six days weekly. It was 20 years later before she moved to Bealls in Venice Village Shoppes in the location now occupied by Ross. Her nal move came 11 years later only a short distance away at the store that opened near Target in Jacaranda Crossings. She remained on full shift until two years ago when she cut back her hours, working every week, usually four afternoon shifts. Recalling one of the major changes over the years has been new technology. We started with cash registers, which could be hand-cranked, wrote every ticket and sowed them on to items, she said. If you took a credit card, you went to the mens department to check in the book if it was invalid. During those 44 years, she held responsibilities as a department head and then as a supervisor for 22 years. She admits her life was not all work as she enjoyed many hours saltwater shing with her grandson on the waters of Lemon Bay and Charlotte Harbor. I do know I am going to miss this as it has truly been part of my life, she said. It is a big decision I have made. I think I am going to try staying at home for a while, but I have already started thinking, well maybe I should nd a job, and I have been offered a couple of jobs. Store Manager Jennifer Graham said she is going to miss Wiggins. We are very proud to have an employee with us for 44 years and so dedicated to the success of Bealls, Graham said. That is what you see with Helen She is 100-percent committed to Bealls success. She has worked with all the family members and trained a lot of executives in the company. Her heart is here in Venice.She has been there longer than the ownerBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONHelen Wiggins, who retires this week with 44 years service, stands with Jennifer Graham, store manager of Bealls Depart ment Store at 4251 South Tamiami Trail in Jacaranda Crossings, South Venice.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7ACelebrating half a century of service this year, a well-known local business is making signicant changes to enhance its services with in-store displays to expand its customer services, which continue to be in demand by customers in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and Desoto counties. I was raised in this business with furniture and fabrics, and then I started design interiors, said Gayle Rector, owner of Ralphs Interiors at 528 East Venice Avenue. Daddy owned the Buttery Bahama in Tampa until retiring to Venice. Bored, he decided to start a little business on the island and from that it grew. This is a rebirth of the business, keeping what is old and yet moving onto new ground with fur nishings, art and home accessories. Ralphs Interiors has moved into the next phase of design by bringing in Missi Cooper-Youngblood, an experienced interior designer. However, Rector assures customers that she will continue offering her lifelong interior design services. Maggi Dahl has been hired as buyer and showroom manager to operate the new retail expansion. Starting the retail in-house, appropriately named Ralphs Retail, they have introduced dis plays of furniture, lamps, pictures and accessories in a showroom fashion. In the past, most of those items were sold out of catalogs and a resource library of fabrics. Now clients visit, see and sit on the sofa, then choose to take it or they can custom design the fabric coverings to be made uniquely their own. Personalized fabric designs are available for a custom furniture line manufactured by a North Carolina company that Rector has worked with for 25 years. Design, said Rector, is about bringing it all together in your home, the whole house, living or family rooms. He said questions must be answered, such as, What is my wall color? and How do you arrange the furniture and what is the window treatment going to look like and should there be large lamps or small? Youngblood follows the process throughout, possibly preparing renderings and cad work, although some jobs do not require such detail. Ralphs Interiors does it all, from small jobs to working with clients who have just bought a new home. Soon, the center win dow display will feature a queen-sized bed. Rector introduces bedding, made to measure; this will be a representation of what can be ordered with beautiful upholstered headboards. The store will open longer hours, Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday mornings, replacing the appointment-only service. Rectors son, Scott has the working end of the family business, Suncoast Workrooms. He wholesales and has continued the long tradition of outtting the Ringling Brothers trains with cushions, just as his grandfather did more than 50 years ago. Ralphs is going into the uniqueness of what design is available without it costing a for tune, Rector said. We look at clients as people who are going to be lifetime friends because they are involved in our success for the future, just as they have been for the past half of a century.New direction for Ralphs Interiors, now 50 years oldBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST Maggi Dahl, showroom manager at Ralphs Interiors, holds a cushion, part of the new, exciting retail display introduced at Ralphs Interiors on East Venice Avenue. After working with hundreds of thousands of visitors at the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa in North Port, subcontractors Dr. Hernando Ortiz and Carla Peralta each found themselves out of a job in July when the citys only tourist attraction closed. North Port and Sarasota County jointly own the 81-acre Springs, which was shuttered more than 120 days ago after the two governments couldnt secure an operator for the day spa. When it closed, about 44 Springs employ ees were let go. Now, Ortiz and Peralta get to work together again. On Oct. 25, licensed massage therapists Lana and Lucho De Vettori opened Beach Life Wellness in Nokomis. The center features massage therapy, personal training, acupuncture and aesthetics. Ortiz, who worked at the Springs for ve years, is an acupuncturist, a medical doctor and a surgeon from Colombia, South America. He has more than 30 years of experience in both western and eastern medicine. According to the Beach Life Wellness website, Ortiz has developed a unique, multidimensional treatment approach. In a typical session, he blends a variety of modalities into every treatment, which could include Chinese and/or Japanese acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tuina body work, homeopathy and Bach remedies. When Peralta said her goodbyes at the Springs, many who enjoyed her Zumba Latin dance instruction and Pilates workouts said they would miss her. She is now the tness director at Beach Life Wellness. She assists clients with weight-loss programs, one-on-one training and better eating habits. Lana is pleased to have former Springs employees working at her center, located at 301 Albee Road. I have followed the Warm Mineral Springs saga; its an ongoing story, she said. What a treasure to have sitting in limbo but we are excited to have Dr. Ortiz and Carla from the Springs now on our team. Lana decided to open the wellness center with her husband after working for the Gasparilla Inn in Boca Grande for 11 years and starting a small massage business. I knew at some point I wanted to work with my husband, she said. I closed the massage business, and then Lucho and I just (happened) to nd a wonderful space near Nokomis Beach. Who doesnt have a dream of working near a beach? Our community healing center is lled with artwork from local artists. We have a very community feeling here.

OUR VIEWFor many, they will be homeless for the holidaysWith Thanksgiving approaching, we couldnt help being struck by the latest numbers indicating the extent of homelessness in the area. According to a survey conducted by a handful of groups, including the Sarasota Family YMCA and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice, there were 348 families without a home of their own in Sarasota County during the rst months of the current school year. Some 637 children were homeless. In addition, more than 70 families and another 156 children were in imminent risk of being homeless. Among the other data points: Seventy-three families with 127 children were staying in motels, either on their own or with assistance from faith-based groups. A YMCA Schoolhouse Link director said that was the highest motel population ever recorded. Nearly 100 kids were living in homeless shelters. More than 60 kids were in transitional housing programs. Some 343 children and 190 families were doubled up living with someone else. Forty kids were on their own. The average age of a homeless child was 10. Twenty percent were age 5 and under. National homeless expert Robert Marbut, who has been brought in to assess the situation in Sarasota County, has said the homeless family problem is most noticeable in South Sarasota County. The highest concentration is in Englewood, he said, with North Port second on the list. Marbut is due to release his months-long assessment next week. Along with his survey results will come recommendations for ways to handle the problem. The study has used the Pinellas Safe Harbor project as a model, primarily to deal with chronic homelessness. The possibility of a family shelter in South County also has been mentioned. Marbut will make his formal presentation at 9 a.m. Monday at the Venice Community Center. Its signicant that the release will come three days before the national holiday that celebrates the blessings of family, home and sustenance. Throughout our area, community groups have been out collecting food and money for Thanksgiving meals for the needy. Food pantries are stocking up. Neighborhood associations are organizing donation drives. Businesses are donating food. Volunteers with churches and faith-based groups are gearing up to serve traditional Thanksgiving day dinners. (A special nod to the End Zone Sports Grille in Englewood, which will open to serve free T-Day meals for the sixth straight year.) If youre one of those collecting donations, distributing food or preparing and serving Thanksgiving dinners, many thanks. If youre one of the many who are asked for donations, please give with an open and generous heart. Keep in mind those who dont have very much, especially the children in families without a home of their own this Thanksgiving. With the Marbut initiative and a growing community consensus, Sarasota County residents can have faith a better long-term approach to the problem is coming. Until it does, we know individual generosity and community action will be there to help make life a little better for more of our neighbors. These are sure signs of Viking ApocalypseIF OBAMACARE IS KILLED, SHOULD MEDICARE BE KILLED? CALL US AT 941-207-1111.This is not NIMBY. A caller to Let Em Have it objected to a group of 30 neighbors who are fighting to preserve the natural look and health of our Venice Beach. The caller said we were NIMBYs not in our backyard. It is true we dont like the current plan by the city of Venice to capture the filthy runoff from our streets and yards and pour this polluted brew on top of the Venice Beach sand in a twoblock-long ditch up to 40 feet wide and several feet deep. We agree with the caller that something needs to be done to stop the beach closures but the current plan is solving the problem on the cheap. There are ways to solve the problem for about the same amount of money that are better both environmentally and aesthetically than the citys initial proposal. We want the city to put a hold on the project until these alternatives can be fully evaluated. Wanting to solve the beach closures, while preserving the look and health of the our most important asset the beach, is a far cry from NIMBY. For more information, go to www. SaveVeniceBeach.org. Gone to pot. Morgan & Morgan promote marijuana, which I believe to be a cancer in society. Now theyre supporting a traitor, a trick to see which way the wind is blowing, just a cheap job hunter: Charlie Crist. Any law rm but Morgan & Morgan. No, thank you. Editors note: John Morgan, of Morgan & Morgan, is at the forefront of the move to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. Another story. We read a lot about the 50th anniversary of the death of President Kennedy. Why have we never read about the death of that police ofcer by Oswald? Was his death any less a catastrophe for his loved ones than Kennedys? Who was he? Who was his family? Who did he leave? Dearly departed. Why is it when someone dies, especially not from natural causes, they are depicted as such wonderful people? Confession. In one of the other newspapers, someone actually admitted they were a tea party lunatic. Right on, Bob. Political mode. Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasnt getting his way on raising the debt ceiling? He threatened to not pay Social Security retirees, military retirees, disability and federal retirees. Now let this sink in really well he did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens. He did not threaten to take frivolous benets such as Internet access for violent inmates. He did not offer to re some of the thousand of unnecessary federal employees that he hired. He did not offer to cut down on his or his wifes frivolous gallivanting around with $20 million already spent on family vacations. One million on a Florida golf outing. Our money; why not? He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or their staff. He did not threaten to take benets away from welfare recipients or stop the free cellphones they got. He did not threaten the bootstrap programs. He did not threaten to reduce payments to foreign aid. He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involved base voters. This list could go on and on and on. This guy is in full political mode. Missed it. I just wondered why Letem Have It wasnt in the paper. Editors note: Some issues feature letters to the editor, some have Letem Have It. Not misled. Theres a big difference between a lie and an untruth. Im sure Obama did not intentionally mislead us about the Obamacare facts. Insure yourself. I think people should be able to pursue these risky hobbies, but I think they should carry some sort of insurance. If these rescuers want to go get these people, they could get some money. This could be a great business. Be good. Im calling about the difculty of housing transgender people in the county jail. I know its expensive for the county and scary for the transgender inmates. I cant be of help to the county if I dont have a solution, but I do have a solution for the transgender folks who are afraid of being attacked by the other inmates. Dont break the law. Only you are in control of your life. Dont break the law. Dont get arrested and you wont be attacked by other inmates. Its simple. No animals. Dont know if City Hall in the evening has all the lighted up alligators and animals that they had last year for the Christmas holiday season, but I sure hope they dont put them up because I didnt see one thing that had to do with Christmas. As much as I think Christ is the reason for the season, I would prefer to see a Christmas tree or a Santa MISSION STATEMENTTo be the superior quality, low-cost provider of information and advertising in the local communities we serve.

Feb. 22 is the latest end-of-time date and a very large wolf shall devour the sun, according to the email. Apparently, other things will occur that will not be pleasant, but lets face it, without the sun, tourism in Florida is going to take a hit, dont you think? This got me to thinking about other signs that could be indicators that the Viking Apocalypse may be right on schedule. The rst sign to me is the shrinking quality of customer service. On three occasions this past week, I had experiences that were less than favorable for a customer. To this day, not one manager or owner has instructed their employees to x the issue. Surely over the next 100 days, we all can coach folks the value of customers. For those who dont, the Apocalypse could be real. Another sign has to be reality TV, which seems to be taking over our lives. While it started out as a novelty, it seems as if there is not a subject folks will not lm and give air time to. It seems as if selling homes at clothing optional places in Florida is an attention-getter and will make its reality TV debut very soon. It seems to me we could just call our neighbors and all swap days to visit with a video camera, lm life and then swap out the lms with all of the other neighbors. Reality shows without interruptions. I wonder if America could go 100 days without the reality x and just pay attention to the realities occurring in real life. Video games have to be included in the warning signs. My goodness, the violence, abuse of women and language in some of these games is horrendous. I watched a game called Grand Theft Auto (the new one) and was oored at the crazy stuff that a 10-yearold kid had control of. I have to believe if we continue to allow our children to spend their time killing, stealing and demonstrating no respect to other humans via video games, our future is going to be exactly like the scenes depicted in those games. Unfortunately, the actors will be those kids we watch play the games today. Take 100 days and reintroduce the video junkies to the world outside their game room; it will do us all some good. Political parties hatred for one another has turned into a struggle with monumental impact on how we get along as a country. Surely this has to be considered as one of the most serious signs the Viking lore may be correct. Gone are the days where after the election, the President became everyones president and the rest of the political machine moved to the center to at least attempt to do what is right by us the voters. Today, political parties at their highest levels spin one attack after the other on the opposing party, never relenting or giving up momentum to stop and think about the American people. It feels like the Party Line is the most important thing on the agenda, right up to election time. At that point, citizens become very important as they punch the ticket. Perhaps we should lock them all in a room for 100 days with only enough food and water for half of them, create a video game on how to survive this, lm their actions and show it on cable live and give great customer service as we sell both the games and the television rights. After the 100 days, if the sun still shines, maybe just maybe there would be a brighter tomorrow.LET EM | 9 AND Now A SPECIAL AWARD.To IGQY SMITH WHO HASPASSED EVERY DRUG TEST ALLYERRLJ L-----------------'=_ IVESEIAAIl3, o w,

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A Claus or a reindeer rather than all the ridiculous lighted animals, whales and dolphins and all that has nothing to do with the holiday. Light them up in the summer time or at Sun Fiesta week, but please, not at Christmas. I think a nativity scene would be very appropriate. And if they wanted to have a menorah, thats appropriate because it symbolizes a religious holiday, or a Santa too. But please, not the ridiculous lighted animals. Up close. A guy said guns arent the problem. He said if a man had a machete or a rock or a baseball bat that he could have still killed them. The difference is that with a gun, you can kill from 10 or 20 feet away. You dont have to be close up and personal, as you do with a baseball bat. Someone could have tackled him, but with a gun, he can shoot anyone who came near him. That guy has got to get his facts straight. Useless. What good are the restrooms at the jetty if theyre locked, and why are they inaccessible to the handicapped? Theres no ramp. Isnt it a law that they be accessible to the handicapped? Missed understanding. Wonder why. Since the inception of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama has repeatedly announced individuals could keep their health care plan and their doctor, period. However, after three years of continued misinformation from the president, the public is learning that millions of policies do not satisfy the regulations of the Affordable Care Act. Wonder why President Obamas rhetoric failed to mention the increase in required standards, plus an increase in costs? Wonder why the president delayed employer mandate. Wonder why the president didnt mention the additional 16,000 IRS agents hired and other government agencies created to implement the law. Wonder why healthcare waivers and subsidies have been issued to unions and government employees. Wonder why some people still dont understand the fundamental transformation promised by President Obama. Mists. Just read about this code enforcement guy who was just doing his job and the city charged him with a felony. City Hall is run by a bunch of mists. Someone needs to get red over this. Editors note: The city didnt charge him with a crime. The owner of the car into which the code ofcer reached to remove a sign called the police. Congested. Ive been thinking for years that it is unfair that people are allowed to take up squatters rights without squatting by putting their chairs and tables and blankets along the parade route. It hinders people getting across the street. If theyre going to do that, they should do what they do in other cities, and that is if you want a front-row seat, you have to sit there. Sit there in the rain for a couple of days and let other people have an oppor tunity to see the parade. I think the city is too lenient letting people put these cumbersome chairs along the route. It should be rst come, rst served, but not a couple days in advance, and I think they should stay with their chairs. Also, Venice is losing its classy quaintness by letting store owners put out their wares and clothes on the street. You cant see the pretty buildings. Its getting too congested. I think the idea of the dolphins makes everything look nice. Sometimes less is more. Now the stores are putting big announcements in their windows for every body who walks in the store. Sometimes you cant even see in the door. Its becoming like a tacky St. Pete Beach area. Friends have said that Venice island has lost its allure, and its just not the same. Museum worries. Ive been reading a lot about the new museum thats planned over by West Blalock Park. We own property in that area and have concerns about more trafc in that area. Saw the plans for the roof garden for cocktails up on top of the museum. I dont think that would t in that area. Our family went into the museum recently and in the past there was a box where people could donate money. Now theres a sign that says singles should pay $3 and doubles should be $5 to see a city museum. Free for all these years with a donation collection box. Its not ap propriate at this time a city building belonging to the citizens, and it should be coming from the heart that people donate. To start charging I think is ridiculous. Also, there should be more communication with neighbors around the center and maybe have someone run some numbers on the trafc around Blalock Park. Also, bring this to the attention of the citizens. Let citizens know what the plans are. Kudos to volleyball team. This is thanks to Brian and company to Venice volleyball coach Brian Wheatley, his coaches, and his team and class representation at the volleyball nals. Im sure all of Venice is proud. Its a great accomplishment and kudos to all. Safety. I nd it hard to believe that the FAA would allow a large hospital or a large school holding 4,500 people to be built so close to the end of a runway that handles jet aircraft of increasing size. I dont believe they would allow a circus arena holding 4,500 people to be built at the same short distance. I think this is sheer insanity, but I am just one voice. Lets ask the FAA now! Making it an historical site doesnt make it any safer as a proposal. Parade blues. I think interest in the boat parade has sunk. Offender notice. Venice has a low crime rate compared to many cities near us. I like to know if an offender is living in my area. If a robber lives next door to you, would you keep your doors or windows open? I think not. Anyhow, if theyre identied, theyre probably in jail and not out and about. Thumbs up to police news. Thank you for the police news. Some person called in and they dont appreciate it.

Lic# 14016 MM14015 Much of chiropractic treatment involves spinal manipulation, a high-velocity thrust that chiropractors deliver by hand. The intent is to move a joint beyond its normal range of motion but not beyond the range that it was designed to handle. This has the effect of providing more room for nerves to exit the spine, relaxing the muscles by virtue of stretching them suddenly, breaking up adhesions or scar tissue to keep the spine flexible, and/or moving displaced vertebrae back in place. To determine which vertebrae need to be adjusted, the chiropractor feels the joints of the spine while at rest and in motion. Once the determination is made, the manipulation is delivered manually using one of a number of specific techniques. P.S. Spinal manipulation has been documented as far back as the time of Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians.

SPORTSCONTACT US ROB SMITH SPORTS EDITOR 941-207-1107 rsmith@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 10A WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20, 2013 HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS BASKETBALL HIGH SCHOOL SWIMMING HIGH SCHOOL BOYS SOCCERThe Venice Indians girls basketball team has a busy start to their week. With three games in three days, head coach Jim Davis knew he wanted his team to get off on the right foot. Thanks to an 11-0 run that included the game-winning free throws from senior Taira Ward, the Indians pulled off a 41-40 victory over the visiting Braden River Pirates Monday night. Honestly, I wanted to cry, Ward said. I really did. I struggle so much with free throws and have even airballed a few. It feels good to make them both and get the win. Davis said, Taira is not a big-time free-throw shooter, but she stepped up and knocked down those two. Braden River looked to have put the game away with three minutes left when Charity Landrum hit a three-pointer to give the Pirates a 40-30 lead. The Pirates full-court pressure had frustrated the Indians all night, and a comeback didnt appear to be in the cards. Thats when Venice unleashed a half-court trap and got four quick points on steals and layups from Mariah Miller and Taylor Angelo. Emma Hanewinckel scored four straight points on two free throws and a layup to close the gap to 40-38. It takes a lot out of us to press the whole game, which is why we cant do it, Davis said. We just dont have the legs yet, so we have to be careful when to do it and make sure were effective. Miller was fouled with just under a minute to go and sank one of two free throws to pull Venice within one. The Indians forced another Pirate turnover and Ward was fouled on a put-back attempt to send her to the free throw line. She calmly sank both shots, and the last Pirate possession ended with a pass out of bounds. Ward, Venices lone senior, led the Indians with 16 points and eight rebounds. Miller added ten points and Hanewinckel was instrumental in keeping the Indians in the game with her strong ball-handling and leadership. Ward just had a huge game for us, Davis said. She is our only senior that plays and we feed off her. She scored, rebounded and even had seven deections on defense. Venice led 7-5 after the rst quarter but the Pirates used their size and pressure defense to take control of the game in the middle quarters. The shorter Indians had few answers for Madison Jaco and Nesereen Graham, who each had nine points. The Braden River press also frustrated the Indians and led to easy layups and turnovers. We were getting to our spots in the press break but we were over dribbling, Davis said. You have to beat the press by passing and we have to learn to trust each other. The Indians continue the week by visiting North Fort Myers on Tuesday and hosting Sarasota on Wednesday. Its a full week for us and Im going to have to do a good job of managing minutes, Davis said.Braden River (40) Jacobson 1 0-2 2, Graham 4 1-2 9, Grabowski 1 0-2 2, Labolt 0 0-0 0, Jaco 2 5-6 9, Logan 5 1-5 11, Gooch 1 0-0 2, Landrum 2 0-0 5.

The Venice High boys soccer team regained its winning record Monday night, improving to 3-2-1 on the season with an impressive 2-0 win over district foe Sarasota. Venice is now 3-1 in district play. The Indians dominated possession for the major ity of the match, creating numerous scoring oppor tunities and preventing the Sailors from mustering much of an attack. The Indians broke through in the 37th minute, when senior Ryan McCormack weaved his way into the box past two Sailors defenders and placed a left-footed strike under the diving Sarasota keeper to give the Indians the lead. Venice nearly doubled its lead in the 52nd minute, when senior Jason McGuires chip from 30 yards out beat the keeper but hit the crossbar and ricocheted away. The Indians got their insurance goal in the 77th minute when freshman Thura Zay Yar sent a free kick into the box. Junior captain Pedro Rubiano deposited his header into the left corner of the goal, erasing any hopes of a Sarasota comeback. Sophomore goalkeeper Garrett Ashley went untested as the Indians managed to keep the Sailors perpetually chasing the ball.Gianopolis scores in 3-1 loss to RiverviewThe Indians fell to Riverview 3-1 Friday night.

AMMCO Transmissions of Venice will relocate next door on U.S. 41 at the corner of Groveland Avenue, a casualty of the Bypass widening project. Residents say Budget Rental has a history of parking helter skelter on its property and along the right of way at the intersection, obscuring traffic. They also cited noise, congestion, poor drainage and other issues with the property. Land use attorney Jeff Boone said numerous meetings with residents resulted in no less than six revised plans for the property to accommodate their concerns, plans that included moving bay doors and fans so they face away from homes, installing noise dampening measures in buildings nearest to homes, and adding a PVC fence and landscaping around the perimeter. What it boils down to is a plastic fence and some bushes, said resident Danny Joseph. I dont think that improves the area. I dont know if that does it for me. If the business thrives, trafc in the area will pick up, endangering children who walk in the streets that have no sidewalks, said one resident. Planning commissioners agreed the area is already congested and didnt leave much room for growth for that particular business, but said that was the property owners decision. I know this is zoned Commercial Industrial, said Jerry Towery, noting CI is the highest intensity use allowed in the city, Whats nagging (at me is it) seems we are trying to squeeze too much into this. Towery, one of two votes against the petitions (the other nay vote was by Thomas Murphy) said the fact that property owners were seeking exemptions from buffering rules and requesting doubleand triple-deck parking to create 60 spaces on the lot proved his point. Some didnt buy the notion that the redevelopment project constituted an invasion into the neighborhood. The CommercialIndustrial zone runs a block away from residential homes. Any time you have that, its difcult, said commission Chair Barry Snyder. We have trouble every time we try to do something that is an inll. Both (petitions) are approved, but Im pretty sure this is not the end of this. The planning commission has nal authority over site plans, but its decision can be appealed before city council. After the meeting, Edgewood resident Conrad Meyer conrmed the groups intent to appeal.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comUNHAPPYFROM PAGE 1 cannot use the areas only tourist attraction on a regular basis. I am ghting for a discrimination of our rights when they closed the Springs, said Fielder, who, like many at Tuesdays event, said they were healed after surgeries and from other aliments like arthritis by swimming in the Springs 87-degree, mineral-rich water. Its absolutely stupid what they (commissioners) have done to us by closing the Springs. Port Charlotte resident Joel Kovacs and North Port resident Frank Usherenko were both in favor of simply opening the Springs for swimming, which is similar to a plan that has been presented by City Commissioner Linda Yates. Usherenko said if the city and the county would open the Springs for swimming only, they could make more than $200,000 in just ve days, thanks to high demand and added sales of annual passes that cost around $975 each. We think its a good idea, said Usherenko, who has been using the Springs for 20 years and said people are starting to get sick again from not being able to soak in the water. I built a house here (in the neighborhood near the Springs), and who would want to live in this village without the lake, because theres nothing else. Elizabeth Nazarian brought her three grandchildren to the protest, including 2-year-old Alexandra, who was holding up a sign on the ground. She said her entire family including the grandchildren would use the Springs on a daily basis if it werent closed. Natalia Krimgold, who visits the Springs from Canada, said the closure is forcing people who use the day spa to go to places like Miami and other areas around the state instead. Krimgold rst came to the Springs in 1990 with a herniated disc. What else is there to do here? she asked. This spring is the best one for health. Its healed me, and thats why Ive been coming here for 23 years. The event was organized in part by North Port resident Eric Kotte, a four-year-North Porter and Polish-born contractor who has designed and constructed homes and other buildings throughout the world. He was pleased Tuesdays rainy weather cleared in time for the event and was happy with the response from the community and dozens of drivers who honked their horns as they drove by on Tamiami Trail, while protesters waved signs stating Save our health, Open our Springs and Why are you hurting us. Local opera singer Ksawery Rolak even led the crowd in singing God Bless America. Its our mission to point out that the $5.5 million (the two governments paid for the Springs) is wasted right now, Kotte said. This is a very, very bad image for us, as we try and attract tourism money. My message to them is simple: Elections are coming, and 2014 is not too far away. Youre either with us or against us ... and were going to remember. North Port Mayor Jim Blucher said it was within the groups constitutional right to have the protest, but wasnt sure that it would help convince the boards to spend any extra money on the property. The only reason its not open now is because of the high costs of opening it for swimming only, Blucher said. Hopefully, we can stay on course and get something for short term and long term, and get it open as soon as possible. The city will hold a workshop to begin the process of constructing a long-term agreement to run the Springs. The workshop will be held at 9 a.m. Dec. 2 at City Hall, off Sumter Boulevard. Kotte said he is planning on sponsoring another rally that day outside City Hall that will begin an hour before the workshop, and will run until 5 p.m.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comSPRINGSFROM PAGE 1 know how it happens. It could be vandalism. It could also have been a gust of wind. In response, six security cameras were installed with the ability to record up to two months of activity. Thats a rst strike against vandals, Veneziano said. The cameras can identify anybody coming and going. If the cameras are removed, well capture that, too. The public restrooms were recently renovated, making recent damage all the more perplexing. The next location scheduled for security camera installation will be the Pier. Veneziano said he would like to coordinate security cameras at the Pier to serve also as beach or live sky cams so people can see the weather conditions via the Internet, and police can monitor evening and weekend activity in real time. The pier has been a regular source of complaints at city hall to the point where a task force was previously convened. The task force recommended the city consider closing the pier at night or charging admission, but city council withheld action on those recommendations. Veneziano said the city spends thousands annually repairing the damage done by vandals. The Centennial Park restroom was just about to undergo restoration when vandals graftid the area, setting back plans. The vandal was caught and required to pay for the damage. Then, once completed, it was only weeks before the restroom door was vandalized. That repair alone cost $4,000. Veneziano said the Jetty restrooms have been vandalized three times already this year. We are concerned about security in our park. Thats the reason for a security plan so people consider them safe places. Cameras add to that feeling of security, he said. In other news: City staff held a kickoff meeting this week to begin creating a parks master plan that would delineate a maintenance schedule, document policies and activities at each park, and track compliance with city, state and federal requirements. A doggie ordinance allowing pets into more city parks is on its way to City Council for consideration. No word on when it will be considered, but it could appear on the agenda as early as next week. The Parks and Rec board asked staff to look into forming a citywide policy on park donations. Some parks allow park benches installed with plaques as a memorial for family or friends, while others have engraved pavers or signs. Board mem bers said it would be useful for residents to know the duration for donations and plaques, and what the standard fees are, noting the current donation program is insufcient to cover associated costs. First we need an inventory. Second we need some kind of policy statement we can forward to City Council, said Parks Board Member Jim Woods.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comSMILEFROM PAGE 1 As part of a statewide domestic violence crackdown, authorities in Sarasota and Charlotte counties made more than 100 arrests over nearly a month. The four-week effort, known as Operation Safe Families, was led by the Florida Sheriffs Association, and involved the Sarasota and Charlotte county sheriffs ofces. The campaign ran from Oct. 13 to Nov. 9. Results were released Friday afternoon. In Sarasota County, the recent operation yielded 43 domestic violence arrests and two for violating a domestic violence injunction. The operation served 11 writs of bodily attachment for those failing to pay child support. Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight said his agency is committed to helping citizens feel safe. There is always a better choice than violence, said Knight. He also pointed out reporting crimes is the rst step toward ending this cycle. Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell said he was glad that the CCSO was one of the 33 agencies that took part in the project. This operation highlights the issue of domestic violence across the state, he said in a prepared statement. It is important that we deal with these issues so that families can feel safe in their homes. The CCSO made a total of 76 arrests including 34 for domestic violence and 22 for associated warrants. It also served 13 writs of bodily attachment for those failing to pay child support. Advocates for an end to domestic abuse were pleased with the campaigns turnout. Were glad to see the arrests because we want people to be accountable for their actions, said Kay Tvaroch, the chief operational ofcer for the Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies of Charlotte County. And the recent numbers from Operation Safe Families may warn offenders who are yet to be caught. This can be an example that helps create safety at home, she said. In all, there were 5,544 arrests 2,587 for domestic violence made by participating agencies in Operation Safe Families, according to the Florida Sheriffs Association. The 33 agencies also served 772 writs of bodily attachment for those failing to pay child support, and 89 children were taken into protective custody, including two in Sarasota. When the safety of Floridas citizens is threatened, our sheriffs have developed the resources to act swiftly and strategically to address the issue at hand, FSA president and Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in a press release. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, 202 people in the state died last year as the result of domestic violence. That represents about 20 per cent of all homicides. Abuse victims or those suspecting abuse in Charlotte County can call CAREs 24-hour hotline at 941-627-6000.

VENUE 3B SOUTH TRAIL 4B AROUND TOWN 8BWEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20, 2013 CONTACT US KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR 941-207-1000 kcool@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERSOUR TOWN Here on the Cultural Coast, one can literally overdose on opera and theater on the same day. The nal performance of the fall opera seasons stunning presentation of Die Feldermaus began at 1:30 p.m. Friday in the Sarasota Opera House. That evening, the curtain rose on Show B oat, the Asolo Rep season opener in the Mertz Theatre at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts. Other shows were going on at Florida Studio Theatre, The Players, Venice Theatre and at the new Manatee Performing Arts Center, among others. Whew! Launching the second season of the Asolo Reps ve-year American Character study, this new version of Show Boat, the show many consider to be Americas rst modern musical rst had to win the approval of the heirs of its creators, Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II. Directed by Rob Ruggiero with choreography by Noah Racey, it did that easily for a 2011 production at Goodspeed Musicals in East Haddam, Conn. (Racey, who choreographed the Goodspeed and the Asolo production, stirred audiences last year with his incredible one-man dance show, Noah Raceys Pulse.) Based on the Edna Ferber novel about life aboard a Mississippi riverboat in the 19th century, this new version of the show is everything a musical should be and possibly more. More than the love story of a riverboat gambler and the daughter of the Show B oats captain, it includes racial diversity, a family bigger than a biological family and economic hardships as the Great Depression looms. In addition to Ruggiero and Racey, the Asolos production features music direction by F. Wade Russo and additional musical arrangements by Michael OFlaherty. Eleven musicians ll the Mertz with a rich orchestral sound betting Show B oat, which is said to have had an orchestra of 50 musicians when it rst opened on Broadway and a cast in excess of 75. The cast is also smaller but still numbers some 46 on the list in the program book. Using that many performers in the Mertz space is a challenge wellmet in this production. Often there were per formers in the audience and even in the stage left upper box. Such staging literally enveloped the audience in the show, which was further adapted by Ruggiero for Sarasota. Under the direction of Asolos producing artistic director, Michael Donald Edwards, Asolo Rep season openers have tended to be big and bold musicals, either Broadway-bound or of that caliber. Because of the way this show uses so much more than the stage, this production could well be the biggest of them all. It certainly Show B oat sails into hearts of opening night audienceBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR PHOTOS COURTESY OF ASOLO REP COMPANYFrom left, Denis Lambert as Frank Schultz, Daniella Dalli as Julie LaVerne, David Sattler as Steve Baker and Elisa Van Duyne as Ellie Mae Chipley in Asolo Repertory Theatres production of Show Boat.

When wearing his white suit, and especially when found, as he often is, amid a cortege of attractive females, Frank Collins looks a good bit like The Worlds Most Interesting Man. And, in fact, Jonathan Goldsmith, the man who portrays that role in the Dos Equis beer commercials, has nothing on Frank. In his 70s? So is Frank. Silky white beard and mustache? Frank has those, too. Saves an angry bear from a bear trap? Frank saves par from a sand trap. Travels to exotic places? Frank has been there before him. And Frank is an accomplished sailor and a licensed pilot, to boot. Take that, Mr. Goldsmith. Perhaps not surprisingly, Francis Lewis Collins is The Man Who Does Everything at the Hospital Volunteers of Venice (HVV), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization associated with Venice Regional Medical Center. Having already served two terms as president of the HVV, he is now its president-elect, ready to don the mantle of leadership for a third time in January of 2014. Born in Grand Forks, N.D., a state so sparsely populated that youd know everyone in it by their rst names if you could nd them, Frank grew up on a farm in Hamilton, about 60 miles north of Grand Forks. Mostly wheat. A few sheep. Some cows. Sounds idyllic? I hated it, he says. He was a city boy at heart. After study ing nance and accounting at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, he was looking for a way to distance himself from the farm country. He found it when Lockwood Grader Corp., his rst employer, transferred him to their Hospitals volunteers have their own Mr. Prime Time Hospital TalesDean Laux PHOTOS COURTESY OF HVVFrank Collins works with two Venice Regional Medical Center employees at a health exhibit.

Will he return this year for the 25th anniversary?Venice loves its parades especially the Venice Christmas Boat Parade of Lights. Do they love it enough to save it? Scheduled for Dec. 7 if there are enough entries it will begin at 6 p.m. at the Albee Road bridge and progress along the Intracoastal Waterway, cut in near the Venice Yacht Club and then return to the waterway where it will sail under the Hatchett Creek and Venice Avenue bridges toward its turnaround spot at the Circus Bridge. Ardent fans get out early to mark their viewing spots along the route with chairs, blankets and, sometimes, yellow caution tape. They watch, whistle and cheer on every boat, from the tiniest to the largest. This is the 25th anniversary of the Venice Christmas Boat Parade, and Id love to see 50 boats or more entered, parade chairman John Osmulski said. It shouldnt be that difcult, given the fact there are 100,000 boats registered in Sarasota County alone. Yet, it was proving so difcult by last Friday, that the parade was in danger of being canceled. The Freedom Boat Club has even agreed to pay for the rst 50 applications to help encourage participation. The event was created by Jim Hussmann and a couple of others in 1989. That committee overcame many obstacles and the rst boat parade featured 41 boats, decorated in holiday theme. The parade has continued annually with boats decorated more elaborately each year, some with lights, motorized decorations and holiday music, some live and some recorded. Osmulski has been the president of the Venice Christmas Boat Parade for the past nine years. Hes in charge of organizing the event, encouraging entries and orchestrating the boats the night of the parade. Its no easy task, but hes committed to making this year extra special. Last year, only 35 boats participated. That was one of the smallest groups Ive ever had, Osmulski said.

Frank and his new wife packed up their belongings and drove across the plains and farmlands of the Midwest to New York. When I rst saw the skyline of Manhattan, he says, that was it. I knew I was in heaven. Frank left Lockwood Grader to become assistant comptroller at Southold (Long Island) Savings Bank, and three years later landed a job as an accountant with Inmont Chemical in his beloved Manhattan. Things were moving pretty fast, and so was Frank. Inmont was acquired by Carrier Corporation in 1971, and Carrier was acquired by United Technologies a few years later. Collins went rst to Boston and then to London to gure out what to do with a small British subsidiary that sold synthetic leather sheeting to shoe manufacturers. What United Technologies ultimately did with it was sell the subsidiary for two bits to two Brits, who agreed to give Collins exclusive distribution rights for North America if hed set up a company for that purpose. Collins quickly established Marand Marketing International Inc. and was in a business he would run for the next quarter century. That business led Frank to travel extensively: Pakistan, India, China, Taiwan and Singapore in the Far East, and to England, France, Germany and Norway in the West. Strictly for pleasure, he also looked in on Dubai and Nepal. Eat your heart out, Mr. Goldsmith. When hed been-theredone-that enough, Frank and wife Marylyn decided to retire to Florida. The year was 2003. Between them they had three marriages, eight children and 16 grandkids, and it was time to take it easy. When I rst retired, I was jealous of my time. I told myself that I wasnt going to spend it rashly, he says. But after about two years, I came to realize that no matter how much time I put into my golf game, it wasnt going to get any better. I decid ed it was time to pay back for all wed had over the years, and to pay forward by helping others. It was time to volunteer. A friend and neighbor suggested that Frank contact the volunteer or ganization at what is now Venice Regional Medical Center. Frank did so and started on the ground oor literally. He was a main entrance escort at the HealthPark, a Venice Regional afliate, greeting people at the front door and taking them wherever they had to go. He quickly became the Man Who Does Everything. Escort and wheelchair pusher. Courier. Installer of medical alert systems. Booth attendant at health fairs. Desk jockey in the ICU. Patient representative, listening to any complaints that individual patients had and taking their complaints to somebody who could do something about them. He was asked to sit on the Finance Committee at the HVV. He became an HVV board member. He helped set up HVV member meetings. He ran orientation seminars for new volunteers. He oversaw the operations of the Elephants Trunk Thrift Store, Lifeline and the Korner Gift Shoppe, three HVV-owned and operated revenue centers. Twice president of HVV, he gave speeches at the Rotary Club and other civic organizations and was often the face of HVV to the public. He was also the HVVs chief liaison with the hospitals Volunteer Coordinator, Ingrid Tetreault. Why did he volunteer? When youre retired, he says, now is the time you can think beyond your own needs and think about other people. And you know, there is enormous satisfaction in helping others. You do a job that you like. You pick the hours and days you want to work. And you get all kinds of thanks and praise for what you do. Our volunteers all tell me they have the best job in the hospital. Says wife Marylyn, Oh, Frank has the best job. Hes the Man Who Does Everything. Then she cautions, But not at home.DEANFROM PAGE 1 Heart surgery turned back the clock for Lennox Bramble, the current utilities director of the city of Venice. Forty years ago, he ran a minimum of 15 miles a day with his high-school track team. Then, like most middle-aged men, Brambles regular cardio routine dwindled down to the annual ski trips and afternoon tee times. By the time Lennox turned 50, even family dinner outings seemed like too much. Due to his age, he blamed the regular sudden onsets of clamminess and sweats on heartburn. I never felt like I wanted to do anything, I was getting so tired all of the time, Lennox said. After two years of trying every over-thecounter antacid in his local pharmacy, Lennox realized that it was time to stop self-diagnosing. So, he turned to his sister-in-law, a cardiac registered nurse, who made him promise to get a stress echo cardiogram as soon as possible. Being an engineer, I was able to explain my symptoms to the doctor logically by telling him that it felt like a large pump was in my chest that wouldnt stop, Lennox said. And thats pretty much what it was. Within 10 minutes of being on the treadmill, the cardiologist found an aneurysm that was ready to burst at any moment. My heart was working its tail off! Within days, Lennox was referred to Dr. Mateo Dayo, a cardiovascular, thoracic and vascular surgeon at the VeniceOcala Heart Institute. Dr. Dayo immediately scheduled an aortic root replacement via Bentall procedure in order to treat the enlargement of Lennoxs blood vessels, which were struggling to properly carry blood from the heart to the aorta.

We perform aortic root surgery to prevent rupture of the dilated aorta, and to prevent the dilated aorta from stretching the attached aortic valve, Dr. Dayo said. For the next two months, as Lennox recovered, he was kept entertained by Dr. Dayos jokes and impeccable bedside manner. He always made me smile and was instrumental in keeping my spirits up, Lennox said. Although he consistently attempted to get back to work, the cardiac surgeon would not sign Lennoxs release papers until he made a full recovery. After that, I hit the ground running and havent looked back! Shortly after Lennox returned to work, his wife brought up the possibility of them being certied in scuba diving. My desire to scuba goes back to my teenage years when I swam like a sh, but had to work when my buddies were getting certied. So, when my wife gave me the gift of certication, I was extremely excited, he said. According to Lennox, deep-sea dives were on his bucket list and he would not have been able to achieve them if not for his successful sur gery. As both Brambles work in local government, time to get away was another challenge. Were going down to the keys and the Caribbean this summer while the water is nice and warm, he said. Warm water is much more fun to scuba in than cold water. We go once a month during the summer months and spend the rest of our free time golng, shing and kayaking. Now 57, Lennox Bramble is more active than he was at 50 and said that he laughs when people who know his history approach him cautiously, because he really has no limitations now that he has had the surgery and has made a full recovery. If I could get rid of these allergies, Id be perfect, Lennox said. The operation at the Venice-Ocala Heart Institute was a godsend. Dr. Dayo saved my life! The only negative is that I only get to see him once a year now.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 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 VeniceOcala 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 Venice-Ocala Heart Institute is comprised of cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgeons and cardiovascular anesthesiologists working together to provide superior care for patients.

SOUTH TRAIL 4B WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20, 2013 CONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS Members of the Community Alliance of Sarasota Countys Homeless Committee took their rst steps Thursday in getting some of the more than 400 families with nearly 800 children off the streets, out of shelters and into affordable housing. Committee members received a presentation of a recent survey by Sarasota Family YMCAs Schoolhouse Link Program that showed there are 348 homeless families and 637 homeless children in Sarasota County, with another 71 families and 156 children being identied as being at imminent risk of becoming homeless within 14 days. Homeless Committee Chairman Paul Sutton said the homeless families could be called the invisible homeless because they do not always want to be counted in fear of possible repercussions, including losing custody of children. Every homeless survey is going to undercount the actual number of homeless, Sutton said. I think of all of the groups that we look at, the children and families are probably the ones that are the most susceptible to being undercounted. Imagine the position of yourself living in a car with your children and thats the best you can do right now. Theyre not the ones panhandling out on the streets ... theyre the ones quietly doing what they can to get by. Ofcials focused on another part of the sur vey that reported 73 families with 127 children were in motels. Families in hotels receive assistance from organizations such as the Resurrection House and Community Assistance Ministry, or simply self-pay. Jewish Family and Childrens Service of Sarasota-Manatee vice president of programs Philip Gorelick said that it could cost $300 a week to house a family at even the cheapest hotels around the county. He said that gure of about $1,200 to $1,300 a month could be used for a three-bedroom apartment that would give a family a permanent home. Sarasota Salvation Army Maj. Ethan Frizzell and his North Port counterpart, Maj. Samuel Kim, agreed. Frizzell said it is much cheaper to move people into housing over sheltering them, which has led to county branches of the Salvation Army to jointly invest $50,000 in independent housing grants over this month and next month. The grants are renewed grants that Frizzell said allows the homeless to skip shelters on their way to permanent housing. They can use that money for utilities or if their car breaks down, because what were seeing is both issues can cause someone to lose their home, Frizzell said. Different agencies will bring cases to the Salvation Army, which will then review the cases to determine who gets the grant funding in a round-table discussion format that it also uses for its disaster funding programs. Tina Steele, who leads the Homeless Strike Team for the Sarasota Community Organizations Active in Disaster, or COAD, said she was looking for affordable housing on Craigslist in Sarasota County and saw that some two-bedroom apartments in rough areas of the county were renting for around $1,800 a month. She found a tiny studio for $500 a month a price she said that landlords should charge for affordable housing that would allow some of the homeless to get off the streets. These landlords need to step up, Steele said. Public housing needs to step up too. When the people who are in charge of public housing say that $1,200 is affordable rent, youre in trouble, because thats not affordable at all. Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comCommittee discusses ways to help homeless familiesBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER A center for those living with mental illness and emotional problems that recently opened in North Port has room for more clients. Anchor House opened in August and operates under the umbrella of Mental Health Community Centers Inc., with a mission to provide support services to adults with mental illness and disabling emotional problems. MHCC, a 501(c)(3) nonprot, offers daily programs and activities that help bring them into the mainstream. Its located in the South County Health Center at 19503 S. West Villages Parkway, Unit A4, west of the River Road-U.S. 41 intersection. Anchor House is one of four centers MHCC has in the area, along with Prospect House in Sarasota, Beacon House in Venice, and Selby House in Arcadia. The Anchor in the name is actually an acronym for Art, Nurturing Connections through Health, Opportunity and Relationships. Deborah Robinson, director of Anchor House, said it is a drop-in center, with day programs offering a variety of activities, including life skills, education and vocational training, and recreational and social activities for those living with mental illness. Theyre meant to help bring them back into the mainstream, she said. We also have an employment specialist who will work with area employers not only to help our members nd jobs, but also to maintain them. Robinson said the center currently has between 10 and 16 members who attend on a daily basis, but it has room for growth. Mental illness is very common. One in four adults has mental illness, and 70 percent who could be diagnosed dont go to the doctor because the stigma is very high, she said, adding many families have a member who suffers from mental illness. We also have a family support group. (Anchor House) is just a place where they can come, stigma-free, and have friends who are nonjudgmental and socialize. All the medicine in the world and doctors are great, but if (a person) is in isolation, theyre not healing. It is a nonclinical facility. Robinson said interns do come to the center, and free, voluntary group and individual therapy also is provided. In addition, Anchor House offers peer recovery specialists, advocacy and linkage to other community resources. To take part, a membership form has to be completed by a doctor, and the membership fee for Anchor House is $30 per year. Lunch is provided almost every day. Its really a great program, Robinson said. The strength of our program is our members. Anchor Houses hours are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

West Villages Parkway (west of the River Road-U.S. 41 intersection), North Port. Anyone who has ever shared their life with a black cat or dog has per sonal stories about what wonderful pets they can be. And yet, even though theyre as devoted as any other pet, dogs and cats in black often wait longer for homes than their lighter-colored pals. Jet, Mohito and Aladdin came to the Venice Cat Coalition as tiny kittens and have been waiting ve months to nd their homes. All three have sweet per sonalities, love to cuddle and have velvety thick fur. But they have been overlooked while the lighter-colored kittens went into homes. For the third year in a row, national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society will support more than 175 local animal rescue groups and municipal shelters across the country, including the Venice Cat Coalition, in showcasing black cats and dogs. The coalition will hold a Back in Black, promotion through Nov. 30 to highlight adorable, adoptable black cats and kittens. Black felines can be adopted at 50 percent off the normal fee of $75. All cats are spay/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and tested. VCC cats can be seen at Petco stores in Venice and Port Charlotte, Pet Supermarket in North Port and Jacaranda Animal Hospital in Venice. Photos of the cats are available at: VeniceCatCoalition.com. All of us in animal rescue know that black cats and black dogs routinely get overlooked by potential adopters, said Kathi Dunn, VCC adoptions counselor. And yet, famous leaders favored black pets. For instance, during World War II, U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a black dog, and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had a black cat. Both pets actually sat in on strategic meetings. Last year through the Back in Black adoption event, more than 1,250 pets found homes nationwide. For more information, call the VCC at 941-525-4568.Black cat adoption promotion this monthProvided by THERESA FOLEYVENICE CAT COALITION More than 35 pets participated in the Howlo-ween Pet Costume Contest & Runway Show at Paws and Claws on Halloween night during the annual Safewalk on Dearborn Street.

Olivia, a West Highland White Terrier, was given the honorary start dog position for the runway show to recognize that she had acquired the most votes, 3,000, for the annual pet calendar contest. Olivia headed up the runway presentation in a pumpkin costume. Some of the other favorites were Baby and Mimi, two dachshunds dressed as hotdogs; Gordita, a German shepherd dressed as a buttery; and Justus, a 70-pound wolfhound with a lion mane. The biggest dog was Christmas, a great Dane dressed as Pegasus, complete with wings. Paws and Claws also featured a 10-foot inated lighted cat at their location for pictures.

This year, things are not looking good. The parade needs more boats and more sponsors. The entry fee for boats is $15 and any and all donations are tax-deductible because the organization is a 501(c)(3) that funds youth boating and scholarships for students interested in marine science. In the nine years that Ive run this, weve given away about $80,000 in college scholarships for Venice High School students, Osmulski said. We give away what we can each year, after the expenses are covered for the awards and awards reception. Boaters will nd entry applications online at VeniceChristmasBoat Parade.com. Potential sponsors should contact Osmulski at josmulski@gmail.com. Osmulski and his committee want to make this the biggest parade to date. No boat is too small he said. Viewers will begin to stake out their spots along the Intracoastal several days before the parade. Many bring picnics and arrive well before the rst boats depart. Viewers also may make tax deductible donations and those could make the difference. For information, visit VeniceChristmasBoat Parade.com Those interested in participating can contact Osmulski via email at josmulski@gmail.com.PARADEFROM PAGE 1 thrilled the opening night crowd. The story begins on the levee at Natches where we meet the stevedores, the Show B oat performers, Capt. Andy Hanks (Joel Blum), his wife Parthy (Dorothy Stanley) their daughter Magnolia (Marissa Magowan), a riverboat gambler named Gaylord Ravenal (Ben Davis) and several black stevedores. Magnolia and Gaylord are attracted to each other but not necessarily for the same reason. Among the stevedores is Joe (Michael James Leslie) who sings Ol Man River about as well as it can be sung. Fortunately, the song is reprised in both the rst and second acts. When Joe appears in the upper box at stage left, at least one of its occupants was surprised at Fridays performance but what a thrill for those seated in that box to hear that magnicent voice up close. Good as he is, he is just one of the players in as strong a cast as has been on that stage no easy task considering the past few season openers, including last years , which kicked off the American Character project. Blum portrays an endearing Captain who heads up the Cotton Blossom family, which includes his real and expanded family of performers and crew. When Gaylord sings Wheres the Mate For M e, and then a duet of Only Make Believe with Magnolia, the musicals love story begins and soon escalates. In the Cotton Blossoms kitchen, we meet Queenie (E. Faye Butler,) one of several blacks on the boat. With Julie LaVerne (Daniella Dalli), Magnolia, Joe and the ensemble, she sings Cant Help Lovin Dat Man. In the very next scene, Queenie portends the future in her solo of Misrys Comin Aroun. Another side of life on the riverboat is brought to the fore when Ellie May and the boats other showgirls perform Life on the Wicked Stage. That was 1887. Magnolia and Gaylord marry and move on to Chicago. Act two takes place along the river but also in Chicago where life seems to have its ups and downs for Magnolia and for Gaylord whose winning streak seems to have ended with his marriage and the birth of their daughter Young Kim (Lilly Mae Stewart, 8). Highlights of Act two include Magnolia and Gaylords duet of Why Do I Love You? and Queenies reprise of Misrys Comin Aroun, plus reprises of Only Make Believe and Ol Man River. While that song may be the nest in a show lled with musical delights, Joe and Queenie entertain one and all with I Still Suits Me. This number is yet another opportunity to enjoy the many dance numbers choreographed by Racey. Others in the cast include Denis Lambert as Frank Schultz, Daniella Dalli as Julia LaVerne, Brigid Kegel as a governess and Brittany Proia as Kim as an adult. Despite being a shorter show than the original and with a smaller cast of performers and musicians, Show B oat may well be the biggest show ever in the Mertz. The set by Michael Schweikardt manages to envelop the audience as passengers on the boat and also as eavesdroppers on the Mississippi levee and later on in a Chicago boarding house and at the Trocadero Nightclub. Amy Clarks colorful costumes, John lasiters lighting and Kevin Kennedys sound design add still more to this visually stunning production. Kudos to production stage manager Kelly A. Borgia for making sure everything and everyone was where needed in this production, which literally overowed the stage and right into the hearts and minds of its audience. Show B oat continues through Dec. 29 in the Mertz Theatre in the FSU Center for the Performing Arts, 5555 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Tickets are $28-$75 per person. Performances begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, Nov. 30 there will be a special family matine production at 2 p.m. with tickets priced at $50 for a family of two adults and two children (under 18). Additional tickets for those under 18 are $10 each. After the show there will be discussion with cast members. Before the show hot dogs, ice cream and beverages will be available for purchase.

The Galanos family has been in the restaurant business for more than 70 years, more than 20 of those years in the Venice Area, having owned Patches, M&D and Crossroads American Grill restaurants. They sold Patches and M&D years ago, and recently sold Crossroads to Leftcoast Seafood Co., and Tom and Cleo said they are done owning restaurants. The couple came from Greece at different times with nothing, which is why they feel giving to the community is just the right thing to do. They are hard-working people and honest, and they have instilled these values into their children and grandchildren, which is why Joanna does the same. This family has helped many local service clubs, including Rotary, Toys for Tots, American Cancer Society, Little League and many church groups, school sports teams and other organizations. The Sertoma Club of Venice recognizes that the community is greater thanks to people like the Galanos.Galanos family named Outstanding CitizensFROM SERTOMA CLUB OF VENICE PHOTO COURTESY OF SERTOMA CLUB OF VENICEKevin Haggen, left, president of Sertoma Club of Venice, recently presented Joanna, Cleo and Tom Galanos with the clubs Outstanding Citizen award. presentsLearnhowBeaandIrvarelivingandloving wellatwww.tidewell.org TolearnaboutTidewellsprogramsandservices,call855-843-3935anytime.ServingManatee,Sarasota,CharlotteandDeSotocounties. 479697 477631 941-473-1403 850 N.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7B My whirlwind ve-day tour of World Heritage sites in Germany began in Wurzburg, which is at least a three-day destination. Years of traveling led to my own destination-rating method. Cities such as New York, London, Sydney and Rio are ve-day destinations. Five days is adequate to capture the feel of a such places, which all merit return visits. Other places merit oneto four-day ratings, which is not derogatory at all. Nor does it mean I would not want to return for additional visits. Wurzburg is the perfect example. I rate it a three-day city and denitely would choose to visit it again and again to experience different aspects of the city. Sadly, I was there on my rst day in Germany, which meant I lost the morning hours to the arrival at Frankfurt Airport, customs, a stroll to the Frankfurt Train Station at the airport, train ride to Wurzburg and hotel check-in. Consider that there are 350 Inner City Express (ICE) trains through Wurzburg daily and goodness knows how many more at a major city such as Frankfurt. I had to be back at the train station the next morning for a 9:20 a.m. ride to Bayreuth. I was staying close to the station, on the 14th oor of the Ghotel with commanding views of the city from my sitting room, bedroom and even from the bathroom. The contemporary glass Ghotel tower is a landmark much admired by its residents, according to the cab driver who delivered me from the train station. From the 14th oor I could see the Fortress Marienberg on a hill on the far side of town, the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site Residence Palace, on my side of the city, the St. Johannis Protestant parish church, the citys Ringpark which circles the city, the Romanesque tower of the Grafeneckart and Town Hall and the Marienkapelle church that was completed in 1480 after 103 years of work. Even though I had slept a bit on the ight from Charlotte, a quick shower and change of clothes helped me to keep going. Some people like to check into a hotel and sleep the rst day. For me, that only prolongs the agony. I just keep going, go to bed early the rst night and seem to be acclimated to the veor six-hour time difference by the next morning. This time I was able to grab a quick shower and change of clothes before lunch. At noon I was back in the hotel lobby to meet my city host, Juergen Ludwig, who would give me a short walking tour, past the garden that rings the city, past the music college and to the Residence Palace. Built from 1720-1744, the magnicent palace gives new meaning to ornate design especially on the inside. We had lunch at the Residenze-Gaststatten, which features an ultra-modern decor with lots of glass. It is on the garden side of the palace, offering daily specials which include soup, entree and dessert. Following the lead of my host, I enjoyed a seasonal pumpkin soup, crispy pieces of chicken and a berry-enhanced an. As lunch ended, Stefanie Arz, a history teacher, arrived to be my guide for the afternoon. We began with a tour of the palace. We checked our purses and cameras (photos are not allowed) and stepped into the center court, which is large enough for a carriage drawn by four horses to enter by one gate, make a turn to unload its passengers and exit by another gate. The passengers, or guest of the prince, would then oat up the grand staircase. According to Arz, the risers were especially low in order to allow ladies to just barely lift their skirts while seeming to oat from one step to the next. They were not to look around but only to look toward the prince who awaited them at the top of the stairs, Arz said. That the room is trimmed with ornate plaster work and magnicent columns and topped by what Arz said is the worlds largest painting on the ceiling, keeping ones eyes straight ahead is no easy task. According to information found on Wikipedia, the ceiling fresco covers 7,287 square feet. Nevertheless, I practiced my oating technique and saved the gawking until we had completed the climb. Being without a camera in this magnicent space could be one of the most frustrating experiences I have endured. The plaster work is incredibly detailed. Coupled with the painted ceiling by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo of Venice, Italy, the room is breath-taking. The ceiling painting depicts the four known continents of the 1700s: Europe, Asia, Africa and America and includes many trompe loeil touches. His views of the continents include portraits of people important to those places such as Native Americans and some of the founders of the United States. One example of the tromp loeil work is a piece of fabric that seems to hang over the plaster work at one spot. Arz said that Tiepolo completed the painting in less than a year with only the help of sons Giovanni (then 23) and Lorenzo (then just 14). He was commissioned by Prince Bishop Karl Philip von Greiffenklau, who also commissioned the palace architect Balthasar Neuman. All told, he was at the palace for three years because he also frescoed the ceiling in the next room one enters after climbing the grand staircase and, in the room beyond that, he went all out and decorated the space with columns that appear to be real marble, additional ceiling and wall paintings and still more ornate plaster. That room also features chandeliers with glass from Murano, Italy. That room is used these days for concerts. There was one other amazing room on my tour a glass and mirror room. Except for one small piece of glass, the room was destroyed near the end of World War II, as was most of the city by Allied bombs. Arz said that efforts were made to remove the glass before the bombing but when that proved to be impossible, photographs were taken. The photos were black and white but, coupled with the remaining piece of original glass, were enough for a local man hired to restore the magnicent room, which is only seen on tours of the palace. Seeing the palace is a must. Yet, even in an afternoon, there also is time to see the Staatlicher Hofkeller Wurzburg the former imperial wine cellar of the prince-bishops. Built at the same time as the residence palace, the candlelit cellar beneath the residence is lled with countless gigantic wooden wine barrels. These days, one can adopt a barrel. Arz said that wealthy people in the area pay for a barrel, which is then decorated with their name or the name of their business. Some of these special bar rels feature ornate carving, which likely ups the price of the sponsorship. Tours and/or wine tastings are offered year-round. Allow 45 minutes to an hour for a tour and three hours for a wine tasting. Arz said it takes one person an hour to light all the candles that illuminate the maze of cellars. The entrance is at the back of the palace. Also behind the palace is a stunning piece of sculpture that includes a statue of Tilman Riemenschneider. Arz was surprised that I knew of Riemenschneider, one of the foremost sculptors of his era and long-time resident of Wurzburg. I had seen his work at Rothenburg ob Tober, years earlier on my rst trip to Germany. Wurzburg is at the northern end of the Romantic Highway with the walled city of Rothenburg a few miles south. With Arz, I was able to see the citys market square, two major churches and the Main River, which passes beside the city, before heading back to the Ghotel for an early dinner and a bedtime that coincided with the setting sun. After an excellent breakfast in the morning I headed to the station for another pleasant train ride to Bayreuth. Bach Days are coming up in Wurzburg, Nov. 22-Dec. 1. The citys Christmas Market will be Nov. 29-Dec. 23. For information on Wurzburg, visit Wurzburg.de.

AROUND TOWN 8B WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20, 2013 CONTACT US FRAN VALENCIC SOCIAL COLUMNIST franvalencic@comcast.net SUN NEWSPAPERS Steve Dixons voice was loud and clear as he stood at the podium at Patriots Park and announced, We are America. We represent everything that is good. Several hundred veterans, family and friends listened to Steve and others like Danny Bilyeu who paid tribute to Blue and Gold Star Mothers. Venice Mayor John Holic listed ways veterans organizations, especially NO-VEL Post 159, continue to serve the community providing scholarships, sponsoring students for Boys and Girls State, providing service awards and a long list more. It is always surprising that someone most deserving of recognition is shocked when their name is called. It is what happened when Barbara Miller Vaughns name was called as Female Veteran of the Year. This lady breaths red, white and blue and is always on the forefront of causes that promote the well-being of veterans and the United States. Loren Pittman was the Male Veteran of the Year. We salute NO-VEL Post 159 for organizing the Veterans Day at Patriots Park, and we salute everyone who participated, most of all to our veterans. Thank you for your service.Salute to Veterans ConcertThe best way to describe the Venice Concert Band and Exsultates joint concert on Veterans Day is sensational. Harry Moses received a standing ovation after presenting a poem he wrote with taps being played at its ending. Google the phrase I am your ag on YouTube to see the presentation. Bravo to all the musicians.One of our bestThe special person of this week is Joshua Rizzo. This nice man is a police ofcer with the Venice Police Department.

He said his little boy remembered him when he returned from the service as they were able to Skype often. Joshua lights up when he talks about his family. Joshua has always been a example of a terric Venice kid. He worked hard in school, had friends and enjoyed the blessings of life, especially all the good things Venice has to offer. His joining the Army and the police force show us his spirit. Like all veterans, when duty calls, he answers. Joshua Rizzo is one of the men who make Venice a great place to live.

November 20 26, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 Let the Marietta Museum of Art and Whimsy inspire you. The third Wednesday of each month, the museum invites plein air painters to enjoy its garden from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bring your paints. The intriguing artifacts found in the museum garden should oer plenty of inspiration, although no instruction. Bring your own art supplies and refreshments and to protect museum property a tarp. Located south of The Ringling at 2121 North Tamiami Trail, the museum is more than just the new kid on the block. Whimsy is good for the soul. Check it out. Both the plein air event and the museum itself are free. Also free today is a glorious Munchtime Musicales concert by pianist Grigorios Zamparas at noon in the David Cohen Hall at the Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center, 709 North Tamiami Trail, behind the Sarasota Art Center. To learn more about other Munch time events, call 941-351-7467 or visit: SarasotaConcertAssociation.org. Free everyday throughout the downtown Venice area are wonderful painted dolphins and turtles. They represent the Venice Art Centers Sea Venice fundraising project. Enjoy them on the streets of Venice now through early April. April 5, attend the Sea Venice auction at Venice Yacht Club where you can possibly take one or more home to enhance your pool deck or yard. Most of them are on West Venice Avenue but there are two dolphins on Tampa Avenue one in front of Venice Theatre, several turtles in Centennial Park, others at the Venice Community Center and Venice Museum and Archives and a turtle and a dolphin at the art center on South Nokomis Avenue. One dolphin that wanted to be especially close to the water is near Brohard Beach on South Harbor Drive. A turtle managed to travel the greatest distance on North Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, north of the Boulevard of the Arts. Come to the Venice Gondolier Sun oce to meet Scoop, our turtle at least until the auction. To learn more, call the art center at 941-485-7136. Casey Ortlieb Lets Go! Editor Casey Ortlieb Lets Go! Editor Okay, I really dont know much about real hunting season, so if I got you excited I apologize. Im not going to clue you in on good places to nd an eight-point buck, nor do I have a clue as to when you can and cant hunt certain types of game here in Southwest Florida. So then what do I mean by hunting season? Turkeys! Yes, turkeys. Its that time of year where we strategically place numerous amounts of turkeys throughout the Lets Go! and then challenge our readers to hunt for them. We got o to a late start this year, and weve already had calls from some of you avid turkey hunters who are waiting to see turkeys in Lets Go! Good news, today is the day. Sponsored by DVines Wine and Gift Emporium this year, the turkey contest rules and entry form is on page 2. Happy hunting! Its hunting season Kim Cool Lets Go!

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 20 26, 2013 DINING OUTUsually, when you hear the term "Brew Crew", it's in reference to a crowd of beer drinkers. In the case of the group that meets at The Last Chapter Coee House and Cafe on Wednesdays, though, it refers to a dierent beverage of choice. "The Brew Crew is mostly just local people who get together and talk about old times," said Karen Alexander, manager of the coee shop. "But they always welcome in new people, too." That neighborhood gathering place is just what The Last Chapter has aimed to be for the past eight years. Seating consists of comfortable sofas and cafe tables, and there is even a replace and bookshelves in the front room, giving it a feeling of being in a friend's parlor a friend who serves tasty drinks and light culinary fare to guests, though. "We have soups, sandwiches and salads, which are all made to order and fresh," Alexander said. "And we also have homemade ice cream, made fresh here in the shop." And although The Last Chapter has delicious baked goods like muns, bagels, Danishes and freshly-baked scones, what would a true coee shop be without all kinds of versions of the hot and cold beverages? "We have lots of specialty drinks, like mochas, lattes and dierent coees and avors," Alexander said. "One of our most popular ones is the Mocha Creamice, which is a drink with mocha chocolate, ice and milk that's blended together." The shop is open from breakfast time until early evening, so there are also some menu items that are a little more substantial. Alexander says that the chef salad, with romaine lettuce, ham, turkey, peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, eggs, bacon, onion and cheese with dressing on the side is one of her most requested dishes. "Our most popular sandwich is the Little Miami Cuban," she said. "It has pork, ham, pickles, mustard, mayonnaise and sauce, and is served on pressed panini bread." The Last Chapter asserts itself as a good neighbor by oering use of its conference room, which seats up to 35 people, at no charge. The only stipulation is that if you require food or beverages, you purchase them from the coee shop. Over the years, the room has played host to meetings, birthday parties, anniversaries and other special occasions. Alexander says that is all a part of showing thanks to a community that has supported them during tough times and slow seasons. "All of our personnel are friendly, and we go out of our way to make our customers feel welcome," she said. "We don't really call this a restaurant we call it a coee shop. It just has a nice atmosphere to it." The Last Chapter Coee Shop and Cafe is at 15 West Oak Street in Arcadia, and is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the Facebook page or call 863-494-0506.The Last Chapter Coffee HouseBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTO PROVIDEDSeating at The Last Chapter Coee House consists of comfortable sofas and cafe tables, and there is even a re place and bookshelves in the front room, giving it a feeling of being in a friends parlor. 50451869 50457579 Animal WelfareLeague's"SANTA PAWS"Portraits of your Pet takenwith Santa(includes free frame for only $10)Sunday, Dec. 15th11am to 3pm* Free Refreshments3519 Drance Street Port Charlotte941.625.6720www.awlshelter.orgBROADAY PALM P'RESENTSIN THE OFF broadway palm children's +hea+reBROADWAY PALMaMC-Now December 25The always popular Church Basement Ladies are in 1 1. = the midst of holiday preparations.

November 20 26, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 7 DINING OUT Josh Emil has worked in the food service business since he was a server at South Port Square, a retirement community in Port Char lotte. By age 16, he was training new servers. After almost nine years as cook, bartender and manager at the Nav-A-Gator Bar and Grill in Arcadia, Josh managed Dannys Deep Creek and Punta Gorda Pubs. In July 2012, Josh and wife, April bought Dannys Deep Creek Pub, now known as Emils Sports Bar and Grill, 24901 Sandhill Blvd., #14, in Punta Gorda. It was a big decision. But I felt I had to try it, and had high hopes to succeed, Josh said. Indeed, Joshs family-friendly business is thriving as he had hoped. Year-round and seasonal residents enjoy the good food, friendly service, reasonable prices and live entertainment on Thursday and Friday nights. Whatever your taste buds crave for lunch, dinner or snack, youll be sure to nd it on the extensive menu. Like burgers? Fifteen vari eties of gourmet burgers, and six traditional steak burgers are oered. Prefer hot dogs? The Cincy Coney topped with Cincy chili is a must-try. The rolls are baked on the premises and toasted. Chicken wings are prepared fried or baked with a choice of 13 sauces. A wide selection of Mexican favorites, steamed or cold deli sandwiches and wraps, oven baked subs, salads, appetizers, chili, southwestern black bean soup and pizza are available. Specials are oered every day. On Monday and Thursday, 35 cent naked wings (dine in only) with a drink purchase; Tuesday, BOGO pizza buy a 16-inch, two-topping pizza and get a 12-inch two-topping pizza free; Friday, all-you-can-eat sh fry (blackened, grilled, fried or baked); Saturday, 12 ounce prime rib; Sunday, pizza, wings and steak sandwiches. From 8 to 10 p.m. every Wednesday, there is bar bingo, facilitated by Carl Benson. Its non-traditional bingo, he said. Each person gets one card for six games. Prizes include a variety of items such as free drinks and T-shirts. Its a fun evening. Emils carries all NFL, NBA and MLB packages on 20 televisions. A pre-game warm up menu includes a lot of goodies and specials. NFL Sunday specials include 24 naked wings and a domestic pitcher for $20, and a 16-inch two-topping pizza and 10 naked wings for $20. A super sampler includes fried mozzarella, onion rings, fried mushrooms, jalapeo poppers and mac and cheese wedges, served with a choice of two dressings for $9.95. Two-for-one wells, wines, domestic drafts and margaritas are served all day, every day. From 8 to 10 p.m. on Monday to Sunday, any shot for $5, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., a bucket of domestic beers is $10. I will never ask any employee to do anything that I wont do myself, even washing dishes or cleaning restrooms, Josh said. This is a fun, but time consuming and a multi-task business. I dont ever want to do anything else. Emils sponsors two adult softball teams, and provided helmets and jerseys for local little league teams. Last year, eight Thanksgiving dinners were donated to needy families, and this year they will be donating 12 dinners. Although Josh and April have busy schedules with the business and their children, they take some time for date nights. We like to frequent other venues, the couple stated. And many restaurant owners and their employees like coming to Emils. Business hours are 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week. Call 941-764-0640, or go to www.emilssportsbar.net.

Regular customers enjoying lunch and a brew at Emils Sports Bar and Grill. From left, Dean Rogers, Tim Sowinski and Mike Dowling. When was the last time you played golf in a truly natural setting? Do you enjoy hitting your golf ball and strolling down fairways lined by trees and lakes rather than houses and pools? Englewood is a quiet, rural area, which is why so many former Snow Birds choose to live here full time. Myakka Pines Golf Club is Englewood serenity on steroids! In any round of golf, while enjoying our lush fairways and excellent greens, you may see great bald eagles, territorial osprey, bright blue buntings, wise ol owls, sunbathing alligators, pink spoonbill cranes and great blue herons. A member-owned equity club constructed 36 years ago by dedicated, creative and forward thinking members, Myakka Pines Golf Club today offers 27 holes of tournament-qualityconditions, challenging, strategic and fun golf. As a GOLF CLUB rather than a Country Club, the focus and financial investment is all toward the golf course. Greens were reconstructed in 2008 with mini-verde bermuda. Each of the three nines is different and challenging in its own right. And, twenty-seven holes provides the flexibility to accommodate smooth flow on the course by melding tee time and turning golfers based on which course has the best availability at the time. Mickie Zada, the Clubs General Manager said We are able to ensure excellent rounds of golf time as well as enjoyable playing experiences. One of the best golf membership values in the area, Myakka Pines Golf Club offers an equity membership and a one-year non-equity golf pass. Private golf carts may be stored and used at the Club by equity members; one year non-equity golf passes include golf cart fees. All members receive free driving range access and handicap system. Extensive practice areas are available including chipping and putting greens and driving range.

But really, all viewing age assumptions aside, this lm isnt for everyone. Thor: The Dark World follows the path of the rst Thor and The Avengers movies based on Marvel comic book heroes. Marvels good but I grew up reading DC Comics and preferred my heroes with more brains than superpowers (such as Batman or Green Arrow). Yet, Thor is a throwback to Greek mythology and hes pretty cool. It took me awhile to piece the story together which featured an array of strange names and places. But it didnt really matter because the computerized special eects and sound were amazing. Chris Hensworth plays the beefy blond Thor and Natalie Portman is his earth babe Jane Foster. Great acting not required here and its so true. But there are stronger acting characters: Thors devious brother Loki is played well by Tom Middleton while their father Odin is none other than metic ulously-bearded Anthony Hopkins. Other main characters include Thors mom, Janes associates and an assortment of bad guys leading masked/helmeted minions. In such a commercialized escapist movie, the action is loud, wild and absurd. Its not violent in a bloody sort of way most of the punched-out soldiers just sort of disintegrate. And Thor mostly takes place in current day London and the world of Asgard (which is graphically tremendous). If there is a real dateline, its when the nine realms are aligning. Thats when the villains decided to destroy everything by getting their mitts on Aether, a kind of red, jello slime with massive powers. Fortunately, Thor and his famed hammer could get him out of any mess. I couldnt help thinking that he should market Arm and Hammer products. And, for some reason, the old Beatles tune Maxwells Silver Hammer kept playing in my head. Thor, when he speaks, has a few nearly humorous lines but hes no Indiana Jones or James Bond. Too much power lifting and protein bars, I suppose. If youre a comic book-video game-superhero-action-scinut, then youll really enjoy Thor: The Dark World (even better if you choose 3-D). If not, stay home. By TOM LOVASKO If youre a comic book-video game-superhero-action-scisays... Maybe Go! AP PHOTOJaimie Alexander, left, and Chris Hemsworth in a scene from Thor: The Dark World.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 20 26, 2013 EVENTS THIS WEEKMonths ago, members of Englewood's Lemon Bay Garden Club began preparing unique crafts, propagating native plants and selecting unique gardens to feature on their Fall Garden Tour scheduled for this weekend. "It's a two-day, three-tiered event," explained Gail Choate, who has helped organize and publicize the group's fund raising events for the past 10 years. "What locals and visitors may not realize," adds Choate, "is that the club owns a historic property on the corner of Yale and Cedar Street, and we open our gardens as part of the annual tour. Our beautiful buttery garden is located on the west side of the clubhouse, and visitors are invited to stroll along Woods Walk, view the new cactus/ succulent garden and rest on eco friendly benches before heading to a colorful display of bromeliads." A special "Shade House" built in 1982 allows members to grow plants to sell during the Fall Tour. In the spacious club house members are oering an amazing selection of unique hand-crafted cards, wreaths made with natural materials and an array of holiday themed handmade gift items. Proceeds help to support college scholarships and Wekiva Youth Camp camperships. Each Arbor Day, and during the year, the club donates trees, shrubs, and owers to local schools, libraries or historic places. For $12 per person, garden tour attendees may view seven area gardens from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Ticket holders may choose to attend one or both days, and for an additional $8 per person, they may enjoy a harvest luncheon served in the Club's cool, shaded garden area from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Salads, iced tea and luscious desserts are prepared by club members, and those on the go may opt for a box lunch to take along with them during the tour. It's a good idea, however, to reserve a lunch ticket in advance. Each ticket holder will be issued a tour booklet that includes maps and easy directions for nding all seven gardens, six of which are located in East Englewood. When planning the tour, drivers should allow time for lunch and shopping at the clubhouse.

18 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 20 26, 2013 EVENTS THIS WEEK DeSoto County has a rich and storied agricultural heritage, and has long been the home of hardworking farmers and ranchers. One of the ways the area pays tribute to those from the past and recog nizes and celebrates those from today is with the annual DeSoto Ag Fest. The festival is a one-day, family friendly event that is held at the Turner Agri-Civic Center in Arcadia. And even though the admission price is only $2, there will be plenty of activities to keep visitors of all ages entertained. Children will love the free kids area, where they can dig in and learn a thing or two about gardening with Mosaic and 4-H. And for adults, the DeSoto County Extension office will be offering free mini-classes on topics like canning and beekeeping. Under the umbrella of the DeSoto County Extension office, the DeSoto 4-H is an educational program for youth that uses a learn-by-doing approach. They have clubs within the program like the Beef Club, the Poultry Club and others that teach them how to raise and prop erly care for animals to show, and as a hobby. At the Ag Fest, businesses, organiza tions and individuals from across Flor idas broad agricultural field will offer everyone the opportunity to get hands on experience with many activities and learn how agriculture is connected to their daily lives no matter where they live. Some of the sights and sounds at last year's festival included a helicopter demonstration, livestock shows, mule jumping, Sampson the tiger, a working cow-dog demonstration, an exhibit about the history of Agriculture and 94 vendors showcasing the best Florida has to offer. Country crafts, paintings, handmade bullwhips, jellies and jams, fresh produce, rustic furniture, fried gator tail, pickled okra, gleaming tractors and mowers, Maine lobsters, gator hunts, airboats, hunting buggies, smoked mullet and fine hand sewn creations are just a sample of what guests will see when they are shopping for holiday gifts at Ag Fest. Attendees can also expect to hear some great music outside on the live stage, gator wrestling by Jimmy Riffle of the Gatorboys, helicopter firefighting, cowboy-mounted shooting, great vendors and crafters, delicious food booths and much more.

November 20 26, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 19 EVENTS THIS WEEKIn its most basic form, any race that places impediments into the path of its participants is an obstacle course. But when you add in natural elements like mud, dirt and water, it becomes something quite dierent, but even more fun. The second annual Tippecanoe Trail and Mud Run takes place this weekend, and one of its organizers says that this one will be even better than the last. "We will be having a 5K and a 10K course, and then also a kids' fun run course," said Mike Norton, recreation coordinator with Charlotte County Community Services. "We had 150 partic ipants last year and already, we have close to 200 registered for the 2013 race." With the course located in the Tippecanoe Environmental Park, the race is being held in conjunction with the Charlotte Harbor Natural Estuary Program, whose goal is to protect the area's natural environment. And there is an abundance of nature in the Tippecanoe Park, which has over 350 acres of natural Florida wild-lands containing nesting osprey and bald eagles, historical middens dating back 2,500 years and more than 100 varieties of birds, including a family of rare Florida scrub jays. Norton says that race participants will see a lot of the park, especially the 10K runners, and they will also encounter quite a few obstruc tions. "There are at least 10 obstacles on the course, and there may be a couple of surprises as well," he said. "There's a wall, a mud pit, a culvert, muddy tires, a spiderweb and a lot more. We'll even have a water cannon. And the mud itself can be the most challenging." Ah, the mud. Just know that on an obstacle course where there is mud or water, cotton is your enemy because it absorbs the wetness. You are better o wearing synthetic bers that t a little tighter to your body, because loose clothes can get caught on obstacles and limbs. The no-cotton rule goes for socks, too they can hold the moisture and give you blisters as the backs of your feet rub against your shoes. Norton said that one of the great things about this race, besides the fact that you get to run through the park and see some gorgeous scenery, is that it is an entry-level event. No matter what your tness level or running capability, you can get involved with this. "Charlotte has some wonderful environ mental parks," he said. "This is an opportu nity for us (at Charlotte County Community Services) to help get some exposure to the parks, and get people out walking the trails here." After the race, be sure to stop by the Char lotte Harbor Natural Estuary Programs Nature festival, which is being held at the Charlotte Sports Park, right next door to the Tippecanoe Nature Park, that same day.The Tippecanoe Trail and Mud RunBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT IF YOU GO What : The Tippecanoe Trail and Mud Run When: Saturday, check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. 10K Trail Run is at 8:30 a.m. for the rst wave start (may be modied). 5K Trail Run is at 9 a.m. for the rst wave start (may be modied). 1 Mile Adult Walk and Kids Fun Run (12 & Under) has a 9:30 a.m. start.

November 20 26, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 21 ROAD TRIPNothing beats a trip to SeaWorld to get up close to the parks penguins, sea turtles, dolphins, whales and more but SeaWorlds new AnimalVision on-habitat cameras are great for keeping up with new friends especially the penguins in Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. The new on-habitat cameras stream live video 24/seven to home, hotel room or wherever you might be with your Smart Phone, tablet or computer. You can even snap a photo while you watch and save it for yourself or share it via your favorite social media site. But as good as this camera app is, a trip into the park is still the better choice when ever possible. Only in the park can you actually take a voyage to SeaWorld Orlandos new journey to Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin where you can ride through the cold and windy continent on the parks new simulator. Actu ally, there are two variations of the ride. One is wild and geared for those fearless folks who love thrill rides and are at least 48 inches tall and in good physical shape. The other is for those who are 42 inches tall or taller and want a gentler or mild experience. Puck the Penguin will be your ride guide. Either way, you will get up close to the penguins and their specially constructed icy habitat which is kept at a chilly 30 degrees. That probably is like constant summertime for them. The warnings for wild riders are similar to those at other parks oering extreme rides. Those who are pregnant, have back or neck problems, high blood pressure, are prone to motion sickness or who have had recent surgery, should opt for the mild version of the ride. Riders will experience cold temperatures on both rides. To get even closer, while in the park, take the Penguins-Up-Close Tour, where you can interact with and even touch a live penguin. There are four species of penguins cavorting in the 40-degree water and tromping on the man-made snow in the 30-degree attraction at SeaWorld Orlando. Four ice machines spew out 20,000 pounds of ice daily as penguin keepers distribute 350 pounds of restau rant-quality sh (according to SeaWorld Orlando) to more than 200 resident penguins. Needless to say, the attraction was especially popular during the record heat of this past summer. The area has a new restaurant, Expedition Cafe, and new Coca-Cola Freestyle beverage South Pole Chill, available only at South Pole Beverages, according to a park release. There are four breeds of penguins. All are dressed in their formal best black and white but the similarity ends there for they vary in side and in the trimmings. The smallest ones even have fringed hair atop their heads and the king species has a yellow gold trim. Some swim faster than others but they all score high on the cute rating machine. Now through Dec. 20, visit SeaWorld Orlando any weekday for just $50 per person, a $32 savings for adults and $24 savings for children 12 and younger. You can still get drenched by Shamu, laugh at Clyde and Seamore in the sea lion show, meet dolphins and ride several rides in addition to visiting the Penguin Encounter. Meanwhile, until you get to the actual park, check out AnimalVision.com Take Interstate 75 to Exit 261 (I-4). Travel east on I-4 to Exit 71. Bear right onto Central Florida Parkway. The main entrance is on the left.

22 Lets Go! E/N/C/V November 20 26, 2013 AT THE THEATERWhat happens when a group of mature Southern Belles decide to turn an aban doned church into a day spa in Eden Falls, Georgia? Sugar Lee Thompkins, the group's leader, tries to keep her girlfriends focused, and the results are hysterical. Veteran actor and director, Ron Bupp, has assembled a "true ensemble cast" for "Hallelujah Girls," the Charlotte Players Main Stage production scheduled for Nov. 21-24 at the Charlotte County Cultural Center Theater in Port Charlotte. "In 'Hallelujah Girls' there's no leading actor," said Bupp. "Selecting an ensemble cast of six women and two men is like planning a ne dinner, as characters must mesh and complement each other." The play, written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten who wrote "Dixie Swim Club" and episodes of TV's "Golden Girls," takes place during the course of a year. As Sugar Lee, actress Blair Lovejoy attempts to convince the group that "It's never too late for us to become the women we were meant to be". Lovejoy acted and sang in the Charlotte Players' productions of "Annie," "Mame" and "Calamity Jane." A community activist, Lovejoy is a coordinator of OneBlood and also president-elect of the Murdock Rotary Club. Carlene Travis, played by Sue Strope, is the Black Widow of Eden Falls. Having buried three husbands, she's given up on romance. Strope has appeared in the Players' "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the forum" and "It's a Wonderful life." She directs high school and college productions and organizes anti-bullying activities at the Girls and Boys Clubs. As Porter Padgett, Steven Pignataro proposes to the "Black Widow." He loves playing this goofy character with a horse laugh. Players President, Pignataro, has starred in productions of "Leading Ladies" and "Sex Please We're 60." Katie Malloy, as Nita Mooney, enjoys a "Hallelujah Moment" in the play. Malloy loves comic roles and believes in giving back to the community through acting. Her favorite roles include "The Women," "Dixie Swim Club" and Neil Simon comedies. As Mavis Flowers, Kathy Amelia portrays a woman unhappy with her marriage. Amelia, the coordinator of Lemon Bay Playhouse's Readers Theater, has acted in "Enchanted April" and "Dixie Swim Club." It's her rst Charlotte Players appearance. Sandi Wood portrays the sweet, simple Crystal Hart who entertains everyone by singing Christmas carols with zany lyrics and dressing in costume. Wood appeared in "Leading Ladies," "Gypsy" and in "Harvey" at the Lemon Bay Playhouse. As Crystal's sexy ex-boyfriend, Bobby Dwayne Dillahunt, Gene Callan shows up unexpectedly to create comic tension. Callan sits on the Players' board and is married to props mistress, Cheryl. Janie Duke portrays Sugar Lee's arch rival, Bunny Sutherland, who tries to undermine the group's plans. Her favorite roles include lovable characters in "Nunsense," "Babe" and "Crimes of the Heart." Main Stage adult tickets cost $18/$9 for students. Call 941-255-1022.

November 20 26, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 23 LIVE MUSIC Tom Lovasko lives in Port Charlotte and is originally from Whiting, Ind. He is a retired newspaper advertising manager, a singer/ songwriter and music collector. Upbeat focuses on pop and rock music of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Top of Billboard Chart on November 20 s1964 Baby Love by The Supremes 1969 Wedding Bell Blues by The 5th Dimensions1972 I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash 1976 Tonights the Night (Gonna Be Alright) by Rod Stewart s1984 Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham! 1987 I Think Were Alone Now by Tiany Sweet Inspirations Little Deuce Coupe (Beach Boys, 1963). Obviously its a car song and the deuce coupe is a 1932 Ford coupe. Its called a deuce because of the in 1932. The song was written for the Beach Boys by Roger Christian, an L.A. disc jockey and car bu Soul Man (Sam & Dave, 1967). The song was written by Isaac Hayes after he heard the term soul, which was not popular at the time. It caught on after this hit and was later parodied by comedians John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Love Will Keep Us Together (The Captain and Tennille, 1975). A song perfect for this show biz couple, it was actually written by Neil Sedaka about his long time songwriting collaboration with childhood buddy Howard Greeneld Chuck Es in Love (Rickie Lee Jones, 1979). Jones wrote this jazzy pop tune about a colorful character who was working in the kitchen of The Troubador, an L.A. folk club. Dance Hall Days (Wang Chung, 1984). Its mostly a song about growing up and much of its inspiration comes from the book Lolita Somebody Watching Me (Rockwell, 1984). Even though theres some paranoia and inspiration from George Orwells book , the song was actually based on the writers incident with a neighbor and a dog. Readers Rock!Last week, this musical trivia question was asked: Singer/songwriter Randy Newman has had album success along with numerous lm scores. Name his only hit song, from 1977, that was controversial at the time. Answer: Short People. The rst reader to answer correctly was Brad Marian of Rotonda West. This Weeks Question: Which one of these groups did not perform at the Woodstock Festival in 1969? Grateful Dead, The Who, Sly & the Family Stone, The Doors, The Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival. If you think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than noon this Friday, and well publish your name as the winner with the correct answer in next weeks issue of Lets Go! Please include your name and city. Born in 1943 in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, Bryan Lee had lost his eyesight and was considered to be legally blind by the age of eight. But you don't need to be able to see to develop an appreciation for music. Growing up, Lee, who will be appearing with his band tomorrow in Englewood, listened to WLAC in Nashville and became enamored with the sound of the blues he heard on the radio. By the time he was 15 in the late fties, Lee was playing guitar in a variety of rock and blues-rock bands, and in his late teens he befriended legendary guitar slinger Luther Allison. In 1981, Lee and his band opened for Muddy Waters at Summerfest in Milwaukee, and he got a chance to talk with his hero backstage. After Lee told Muddy how honored he was to be opening for such a legend, Waters told the youngster, Bryan, stay with this. One day youre going to be a living legend. Those words of encouragement would become an inspiration to Bryan Lee throughout his career. By 1982, he had moved to the blues mecca of New Orleans, and became a full time resident. Lees recognition in the Crescent City began with a long residency at the Old Absinthe House in the French Quarter. One of the formative blues guitarists who caught his act was a young Kenny Wayne Shepherd, whose time sitting in with Lees band proved to be a revelatory experience for him. Many years later, Shepherd would return the favor by including Lee in his documentary, "10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads." Lee has been called a New Orleans Blues Institution and is also known as the Braille Blues Daddy. He has even played the prestigious New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for the past 26 years, and on Sept. 17 released his most recent CD, and his rst on an American label, called "Play One for Me." Special guests on the CD include blues singer/ harmonica player Kim Wilson and Johnny Moeller, of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. On this tour with his Blues Power Band, Lee is making the rounds of the state of Florida, and will be performing at Englewood on Dearborn, as part of their Blues Under the Stars series. Appearing along with Lee will be New Orleans native John Perkins, who plays drums in the band, Brent Johnson on the guitar and Nick Hern on bass guitar. For someone who could be considered to be at a disadvantage because of his lack of sight, Lee has not only overcome that obstacle, but has excelled and become a star in the blues music industry. And that, according to him, is a gift. The Good Lord gave me this gift and I want to share it," he said.Bryan Lee to perform at Englewoods on DearbornBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT IF YOU GO What : Bryan Lee and The Blues Power Band When: Thursday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. Where : Englewoods on Dearborn, 362 West Dearborn Street, Englewood.
