Man arrested after infant found not breathing


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
A Venice man is in jail on
$250,000 bond after a child left
in his care was found battered,
bruised, unresponsive, and not
breathing.
Authorities say Caleb
Wagner, 27, the boyfriend of
the 15-month old's mother,
called 911 around 8:45 p.m. on
Nov. 11, but his story of how


the male infant received his
wounds didn't jibe with what
authorities think happened.


Every time the infant was out
of his mother's vision, he came
up injured, according to reports.


Bayflite arrived and
transported the infant to
All Children's Hospital in St.
Petersburg for urgent care
that evening. The infant had
numerous facial injuries and
head trauma and was unre-
sponsive and had abnormal
breathing, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office probable cause affidavit.
Det. K. Frank interviewed
the mother, who said she


An Evening of Wonder


E. *-.


Thousand of residents, visitors and
tourists lined downtown Venice streets
Saturday for the annual evening holiday
parade. Kids and adults alike were
treated to a spectacle of floats, clowns,
bands, fancy cars, and more all bril-
liantly highlighted by holiday lights that
produced an evening of wonder.


Pine View given Guinness record

Alex Hayes, the current Interact
club president at Pine View, and
Dr. Steven Covert, the Pine View
principal, hold the official certificate
sent from Guinness that certifies that
Pine View broke the world record.
The certificate is now displayed in
Pine View's front office.


By KATIE DUNN-RANKIN
GONDOLIER SUN CORRESPONDENT

For the 600 students and
teachers, it was a struggle to fit
everyone inside the cafeteria, but
it had to be done, because it was
time to make the sandwiches,
and time was of the essence.
In fact, time was the only rea-
son any of those 600 people were
in the cafeteria that morning.
On May 30, Pine View School,
led by its Interact Club, broke
the Guinness World Record for
the number of sandwiches made
in an hour. The 600 students
made 5,721 sandwiches in 30
minutes and 24.68 seconds. They


would have continued for the
whole hour, said Joshua Palmer,
previous Interact president and
current Vanderbilt student, but
they ran out of bread.
Today, the record that Pine
View set remains unbroken, said
Palmer.
The event was special because
the sandwiches were donated
to five local food banks, and the
surplus funds were donated to
charity. This past Monday, Pine
View held a ceremony to honor
the accomplishment. Current
Interact President Alex Hayes,
a senior, presented the official
Guinness certificate to Pine View
Principal Steven Covert.


"There are lots of people
who are good at lots of different
things, but now we know that
Pine View is the best at making
sandwiches," said Jeremy Kemp,
who led the project last year and
currently attends the University
of Virginia.
To engage the entire school,
the Interact club emailed every
teacher and asked for classes
to volunteer at the event. So
many classes expressed interest
that Interact had to choose the
first 20 classes that volunteered.
Older students made sandwiches
and led the organization efforts

RECORD 112


MORE CHARGES
Two days after the alleged incident with the
infant, Caleb Wagner, 27, was involved in a road
rage incident in which he allegedly pulled a
handgun on a motorcyclist, according to court
records.

was doing her laundry earlier
that morning when Wagner
told her he heard a thud and
found the infant had appar-
ently fallen off the living room
couch, striking a coffee table
and then the tile floor. The
child had a cut to his upper
lip and bruising to his nose
and forehead, recalled the
mother.

PGT will


grow yet


again


Hiring has begun
By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
PGT Industries received a
thumbs up this week from the
Venice Planning Commission
to proceed with building
another glass laminating and
tempering plant in North
Venice.
PGT spokesman John
Mancini said the expansion
will create 60 jobs, manned
by 20 people in each of three
shifts.
"We're currently growing
by about 20 percent annually.
Phase I of the project will meet
our current needs," Mancini
said.
Phase I calls for 56,643
square feet of manufacturing
space with 155 parking spaces.
Completion is anticipated in
August of 2014, according to
Mancini.
Phase II of the approved
site plan calls for a second,
41,038-square-foot plant.
Whether that will house more
glass laminating, or window
or door manufacturing will
depend on the future market.
There's plenty of room avail-
able on the 12-acre parcel,
which is currently a vacant lot.
PGT has already begun hir-
ing due to extensive training
that will be required, Mancini
said.
The expansion will help
streamline inventory and
delivery systems, and provide
greater control over glass qual-
ity and ultimately costs.
It will also fill a hole in
production.
The company, Mancini said,
has had difficulty in the past
meeting its need for glass and
on occasion has had to buy
from outside sources.
"This will mean we won't
have to outsource for glass,"
Mancini said.
The finished glass will be
transported elsewhere within
the facility to be placed into
windows and doors.
Mancini also assured
commissioners the glass will
be manufactured for internal
use in their own products, and
not for exportation. Concerns
were raised about the traffic
such an export business could
produce.
"There are no plans to
outsource glass from that
facility," he said.
PGT did not propose
any modifications to code

Girl fights off sexual attack near Osprey bus stop


The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office is inves-
tigating an attempted
sexual battery involving a
young girl.
Around 3 p.m. Monday
afternoon, the girl was
dropped off at her bus stop
near Church Street and
U.S. 41. On her walk home,
nearWashington and Oak
Street in Osprey, the victim
reported an older man
pulled her into a wooded
ditch and attempted to
sexually batter her.
The girl then punched
and scratched the man
before she fled.
The suspect left the
area driving an older,
solid red pickup truck
with a dent near the right
window. He's described
as having gray hair or
balding, 5 foot 4 inches
tall, 180 pounds, wearing
a gray T-shirt and plaid
boxer shorts.
Any person with infor-
mation should contact
the Sarasota Sheriff's
Office at 941-861-4260
or Crime Stoppers at
941-366-TIPS.

Choked woman
who woke him
AVenice man staying
with a homeless woman
in her tent allegedly
choked her because she
woke him while he was
trying to sleep.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:


I POLICE BEAT
The information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff's office, Florida Highway
Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction. Guilt is determined by the
courtsystem.


Robert L. Burgess,
32, deemed a "prolific
offender" by SCSO, had
been living in a tent with
the victim
for about a
week. On
Thanksgiving
day, he was
trying to
sleep when
she asked
BURGESS him what
time it was.
Burgess allegedly became
angry and grabbed her
by the neck. She freed
herself and ran to the
road where she waved
down a deputy.
Burgess, 100 block of
Clemson Road, Venice,
was charged with
domestic battery by
strangulation. Bond was
set at $10,000.

Not welcome back
A Nokomis man was
arrested for domestic
battery after he tried
to visit his mother and
grandmother.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
The family of
Christopher L. Radford,
39, had to get a legal
eviction to remove him
from the premises just


days earlier. Radford
wouldn't elaborate on
the incident. The women
said he
pushed his
83-year-old
grand-
mother in
order to get
inside.
Radford
RADFORD was charged
with domes-
tic battery on a person 65
or older. Bond was set at
$10,000.

Another arrest in
Rx fraud case
A Venice man was
arrested for fraud and
Oxycodone trafficking in
a case related to the theft
of prescription pads from
a Fort Myers physician's
office in 2011.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
Multiple individuals
from the South County
area were passing
fraudulent prescriptions
from Luxor Industries
Physicians Group at an
Englewood pharmacy
between June and August
2011.
Matt Francis Swat,
22, was allegedly one of
them. He presented a
Florida driver's license,


which was photocopied
by pharmacy staff,
when he purchased 270
Oxycodone
pills.
Swat also
left a phone
number,
which
matched
his. When
SWAT detectives
attempted
to speak to Swat in
2012, he requested to
consult an attorney. In
February, a latent print
exam matched Swat's
left thumb to a new
patient sheet he had
filled out while filling the
prescription.
A non-arrest complaint
was filed in October
against Swat. He was
arrested Nov. 27. He
remains in jail on $60,000
bond.

Mediation held in case against Venice police


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Nearly four years ago,
aVenice police officer
responding to a domestic
violence call arrested a
woman for interfering
with an investigation after
she refused to open her
apartment door.
The woman sued in
federal court, claiming
unreasonable home entry
and excessive force, among
other things.
Yesterday (Dec. 3) the
case went to mediation.
By law, the parties aren't
allowed to discuss the
outcome pending formal
acceptance if they come
to a monetary settlement.
If not, the case heads to a
jury trial.
Federal Judge Mary
Sciven, Middle District
Court of Florida, ruled in
September against the


INFANT

The infant allegedly took
a nap from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
According to Wagner, he
put two other children
to bed, then brought the
victim into the bedroom to
change his diaper. When
he picked the infant up he
went limp, Wagner said.
He shook the victim's arms
to waken him but did not
receive a response.
Wagner said he tried to
call the mother but said
she did not answer her

standards, although
commissioners urged the
company and architects to
consider increasing, or add-
ing additional buffering, to


city's motion for summary
judgment, which would
have essentially dismissed
the case.
The incident took
place Jan. 4,2010, when
Venice Police Officer Paul
Freeman was called to in-
vestigate a disturbance at a
residence in the 200 block
of Avenue des Parques.
According to a police re-
port, MaryWalters, 49, and
a man had been drinking
in her apartment when
they got into an argument.
She kicked him out.
He insisted he forgot his
keys inside. She said she
didn't have them. They
were never found. The man
complained to the apart-
ment complex manager,
who called the police.
Walters refused to open
the door, yelling expletives
at the officer who respond-
ed, and telling him to "get
a search warrant."

cellphone, so he went
next door to his friend's
residence. The friend
came to the child's aid and
told Wagner to call 911.
The friend said when
he found the child in
his crib, he was stiff, his
eyes had rolled back in
his head, and he had
stopped breathing. The
friend forced open the
child's mouth, at which
time the victim began
breathing again.
When the detective
arrived at the hospital, the
infant was already in emer-
gency surgery having a
large brain bleed removed.

the 25-foot setback nearest
a farm with horses.
Shawn Leins, with AM
Engineering, said PGT is
"very anxious to get this
building started."
"Of all the planned
industrial parks, this is
one of the nicer ones I've
worked on." Leins said.


Police records state
Freeman, 45, a 14-year
veteran with the depart-
ment, was concerned
over Walters' "extreme
state of intoxication" and
wanted to observe her "to
ensure she was not in any
danger."
"Not being able to see
her... I wasn't able to
come to a full conclusion,
but it had me thinking
possibly a Marchman Act.
But my main goal was to
investigate the criminal
aspect of a disturbance,"
Freeman later testified,
according to court filings.
The Marchman Act
permits the involuntary
commitment for evalu-
ation of a person who is
under the influence of
alcohol or drugs and who
poses a threat to himself or
herself or another person.
Officer Freeman secured
a key to the apartment

The detective was told
the bruising to the face
and head area was too
severe for just a fall. The
infant also exhibited
broken blood vessels
that caused blood spots
throughout both ears. He
was having seizure-like
symptoms while in flight
to All Children's Hospital.
Two days later, Dr. Sally
Smith, of the Pinellas
County Child Protection
Team, examined the victim.
She concluded the
victim's injuries, which
included a spinal fracture,
are the result of physical
abuse.

Commission chair
Barry Snyder agreed.
"I think it looks like a
good project out there,"
he said.
PGT pioneered the U.S.
impact-resistant window
and door industry and to-
day is the nation's leading

from the manager. After he
opened the door, "the de-
fendant raised both hands
in a fighting position to-
wards me, and then began
yelling at me," Freeman
said in the probable cause
affidavit for the arrest.
"I pushed the defendant
backwards onto a bed and
placed her into custody for
her protection."
She was transported to
the North County jail.
Freeman said he was
acting on information
from the male compan-
ion that both had been
drinking all day. When he
asked her how much she
had to drink, she refused
to answer. He grabbed
her wrists because she
was kicking and swinging.
Then he handcuffed her.
She responded by telling
the officer she "had some
cop friends" and would
"get even" with him.

She further said the
injuries are consistent
with high force impact
on a relatively soft
surface, such as being
thrown onto a couch or
bed with force.
"These injuries abso-
lutely are not consistent
with the statement of him
falling off the couch,"
Smith told detectives.
Bruising of both ears
was observed. The retinal
hemorrhaging in the
victim's left eye would have
also been the result of a
high force impact, she said.
Smith indicated the
onset of unconsciousness

of residential impact-resis-
tant windows and doors,
according to company
officials. The company
employs more than 1,000
at its manufacturing
facility located in the Triple
Diamond Commerce Park
off Knights Trail Road.

The defendant later
made statements like, "I'd
rather be dead than in
jail," and "use your gun
and shoot me in the head,"
according to the affidavit.
On Jan. 20, 2010, the
state attorney's office for
the 12th Judicial Circuit
issued a memo declining
to prosecute the case,
calling it a "warrantless
non-emergency arrest of a
suspect in his or her own
home (that) is presump-
tively unlawful."

stated, "in this case, there
was no reasonable basis to

Brindley's new features, look lead to new name


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Little more than
12 months ago, new
owners acquired the
liquor store serving
islanders for more than
30 years. Carrying out
their intentions to make
it an interesting place to
shop, they have trans-
formed it into a unique
destination.
In January, the
transformation will be
completed and owners
Bill and Beth Ahern will
reveal the new name
with new signage.
Retiring the Brindley's
Liquors name, this iconic
store will become Island
Times Spirits & Gourmet
Market, 421 South
Tamiami Trail, across
from Venice Regional
Medical Center.
"Most stores do not
have the additional
facilities we have spe-
cially introduced for
all our regular and new
customers," Ahern said.


"Not just for the holidays,
but every day they can
sample wines, spirits
and beers at their own
leisure."
Island Times is a
unique destination.
Customers can socialize
in the deli full of gourmet
food items and wander
among more than 8,000
different items, including
2,000 wines, 4,000 spirits
and 800 beers, many with
detailed background,
history and blends.
Capturing the essence
of the store as customers
walk in is the objective
for the name change. The
Aherns believe it incor-
porates the island into
the business and have
already added a "beachy"
feel and ambiance with
lots of tropical d6cor by
signs, gifts, accessories
and spirits.
Attention-attracting
neon signs of palm trees
and parrots adorn the
windows. Entering the
store, shoppers will feel
the atmosphere beaming


at them from the is-
land-style ceiling mural
painted by a local artist.
Celebrations for the
re-branding to Island
Times Spirits & Gourmet
Market will be in late
January. On the grand
reopening weekend, the
Aherns will have lots of
giveaways with vendors
pitching in free T-shirts,
hats and more.
There will be prize
giveaways, free samples
of products, tasting
of wine, beer, liquor
and more all weekend.
According to Ahern, it is
going to be one big party
for all guests.
In the expanded
deli, connoisseurs will
find the cheese sec-
tion vastly expanded.
Additionally, the owners
have brought in new
meats and spreads,
including Usingers
Sausage of Milwaukee, a
favorite with locals and
snowbirds.
Seating 40 people,
the store will serve


sandwiches and subs
made to order and
ready-made dishes not
only for lunchtime but
all day between 9 a.m.
and 7 p.m. Customers
are encouraged while en-
joying a platter of cheese
or sandwich to combine
it with sampling wines
using a tasting card.
Those preferring cold
beers may welcome the
opportunity to get out of
the Florida sun into the
constant 32 degrees in
the Beer Cave.
Those looking for
something different
should check out the
craft spirits of vodka,
rum and whiskey from
the smaller batch
distillers. Those entering
the store can get a tasting
card and sample the
wine before they buy it.
The Aherns encourage
socializing, particularly
late every Thursday
afternoon with deli
happy hour. Further,
the tasting machine

wines and liquors.
The owners have
already introduced a
charitable aspect to
customers when they
opened the store, to
support local nonprofits
and fundraising organi-
zations in an event called
a Tasting Extravaganza.
That is a big party with
more than 100 people
enjoying special prices
on wines, beers, spirits


and cheese spreads.
Already this year at
those events more than
$8,000 has been raised,
and one event had a
record 153 attendees.
Next year, parties for the
Venice Area Women's
League, Women's
Sertoma, Habitat for
Humanity, Senior
Friendship Center and
the Loveland Center will
be held at Island Times.

Papa's Meat Market opens with full features


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A key service in the retail
scene on the island of
Venice reopened this week
For an estimated 22
years or more at the
location across from the
Tandem Center, residents
and visitors had the
opportunity to purchase
quality products at the
meat market until it
closed around a year ago.


Jim and Roseanne
Dooley, owners of Eden's
Salon and Spa, have
acquired the adjoining
island meat market.
Renaming it Papa's Meat
Market, 324 Tamiami
Trail South, it is next to
the Produce Market.
"I choose Papa because
it is what my grandchil-
dren call me and it also
represents the heavenly
father," Dooley said. "I
am sure it will become a


name to remember and a
place to shop for all your
meat and fish."
Since acquiring the
property, he has spent
several weeks completely
upgrading it, installing
new equipment, display
refrigerators and much
more. It follows similar
contracting work he
undertook in completely
upgrading the premises
for the Salon & Spa
before the team moved


in a few months ago.
To manage the business
with him, Dooley has
hired Chef Janet Spender,
who has 30 years' expe-
rience as a French chef
and meat cutter. It is a
complete meat market
and full Metro-Line deli
with prepared food and
takeout service.
'A meat market is
fun because it is like
Christmas every day,"
Spender said. "We wrap


up a package for every-
one; they take it home and
are really happy with it."
Papa's will specialize in
certified Angus beef, steak
cuts including ribeye
and porterhouse, holiday
roasts, fresh hams, lamb,
pork and chicken. In the
seafood section, they
have Norwegian salmon,
scallops from Maine and
other fresh fish.
Customers can pur-
chase food prepared


on the premises to take
home and cook; in addi-
tion, there is a full line of
homemade cooked foods
like beef stew, meatloaf
and shepherd's pie. The
Metro Deli is stocked
with all natural meats,
specialty salads, a desert
case of tarts, cookies,
croissants and more.
Fresh subs, sandwiches,
takeout salads, homemade
soup of the day, chips and
sodas are available.


Rock with Rotary event to feature local band


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The local Rotarians,
who are business people
known for creating new
fundraisers to benefit the
community, may have a
special surprise next year
for the community.
They are planning a
new Rock with Rotary
concert. The show will
be held from 6 p.m. to
10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19,

at local clubs in Venice, Port
Charlotte and Sarasota.
For the Rotarians, the Gas
House Gorillas in concert
will be a show for all ages.


"This concert is popu-

Calusa Bank plans expansion to Venice


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A Punta Gorda-based
community bank that has
already established a tempo-
rary loan office is planning to
open its fourth branch office,
inVenice, in early 2014.
Seasoned banker Rodney
Girdwood is spearheading
the establishing of a Calusa
National Bank office, and
negotiations are currently
underway to identify a
suitable property within the
city limits.
"We are definitely opening
a new branch in the first
quarter," Girdwood said.
"With the Florida Shores
Bank sell-out, we will be
one of only two community
banks in Venice. I have
already set up my local board
of directors making decisions
here for local people."

OUR VIEW


Christmas spirit: remembering our seniors, our kids


hey say Christmas is for kids.
To a large degree, that is
true. No one gets as excited
opening up presents as a child. And,
when that present is exactly what they
asked Santa for, the enthusiasm is
intensified.
The image of excited children open-
ing presents and the idea that many
children in our area may not have
presents to open is what spawned a
number of organizations and busi-
nesses to put up angel trees each year.
Those, of course, are trees located
in various businesses that have cards
attached with the names of children
whose family cannot financially
afford presents, or children who for
one reason or another, do not have a
family. The cards list a number of gifts
the kids have requested.
Mike Levine, owner of the Home
Instead Cafe franchise in Venice and


South Sarasota County, believes there
are seniors in our communities who
are just as needy as kids.
Levine is sponsoring Be a Santa to
a Senior trees in Venice, Englewood
and North Port. His goal is to gather
enough presents to make the holiday
a little happier for 400 or more seniors
- most of them who have no family
and are alone for Christmas.
Levine quietly began the charity
about 10 years ago. Last year, he was
able to collect gifts for about 200
seniors whose names he collects
from social service caseworkers, the
Salvation Army, nursing homes and
other agencies.
You can find trees at Beall's Outlet
stores in Venice, Englewood and North
Port.
We think it is a marvelous idea to
embrace our seniors and make sure
they are not forgotten at Christmas.


Kids Without Bikes
Then there are the kids in our
community who might be lacking one
of the basic elements of virtually every
childhood a bicycle.
That's where Josh LeBlanc of Venice
comes in.
When he was just 6 years old, he
couldn't understand why every child
he knew didn't have a bike. Even at the
tender age of 6, he knew he needed
to do something, so he started asking
family members and friends for
donations so he could purchase bikes
for kids who didn't have one.
Now 12 and a student at SKY
Academy, Josh has purchased more
than 140 bikes since he first started.
Each year, he receives a list from
Venice Elementary School of kids who
do not have bikes. He does not receive
names but simply gets a list of the


child's gender and helmet size.
Those who wish to donate toward
Josh's efforts can do so at Addington's
Florist, Waterford Golf Club, Capri
Isles Golf Club, Calusa Lakes Golf
Club, Mad Avenue Spa, SKY Academy
and Darryl's Restaurant.
Josh's mother, Kim, told a partic-
ularly poignant story about Josh's
efforts.
"We helped a single father of three
last year, and he said the bikes were
the only big present the kids were
getting for Christmas," Kim said. "He
was so appreciative, and it still nearly
brings tears to my eyes just thinking
about it."
Between the work of Josh LeBlanc
and Mike Levine, the area's holiday
spirit is shining through for people
of all ages. We are fortunate to
have people of such caliber in our
community.


I'm in favor



of tradition and,


yes, chairs


^a


Tim
Smolarick


I have lived in several major
cities in the United States
and can attest to the fact that
where we live is paradise.
Based on crime statistics alone,
we have to rank pretty good
in best places to live in the
country.
Besides the people, there
are several factors that make
us stand out in the category. I
believe one of them continues
to be our Christmas parades
- not just the events but
the anticipation that spreads
throughout the community
beforehand.
Personally, I think the ritual
of placing chairs out in just
the right spot so that family
and friends can share the
parade is one of the most
quaint traditions I have ever
seen in a community. As with
every tradition, there are pros
and cons that accompany the
annual ritual, but let's face it
- it's just pretty darn cool that
a community can trust itself
so much to do this without
creating turmoil.
I imagine it's almost like
getting the Christmas tree each
year. You can't wait too long to
complete the task or there will
be nothing left. Coming home
without a spot for the Christmas
parades can't be any fun.
Venice still has tradition
and still wants to be a part
of the time honored holiday
festivities. Additionally, I have
to think that displays such as
this can often tip the scales in


our favor when people from
the cities across the land are
deciding on where to retire.
I doubt too many times
in their life have they seen
hundreds of chairs left out in
the community for as long as
a week and not be destroyed,
stolen or used in a crime.
As each year passes, it seems
like we start making a bigger
deal out of a tradition than
there really is, so much so that
elected officials are forced to
begin regulating our holiday
traditions. Clearly we have
seen time and time again what
can happen when government
gets involved in non-govern-
mental stuff.
Do we really need to com-
plain to city officials about
chairs for holiday celebrations?
Do we really need to risk a
time honored tradition getting
regulated out of existence be-
cause we have nothing more to
complain about? In my mind,
the ritual is one that has been
respected and we the people
have not gone absolutely wild.
Quietly, people put out some
chairs and go home feeling
warm as they have no doubt
the spot will be there on the
day of the parade. Think about
how special that really is folks.
Instead of complaints next
year, let's all work together
and make these two Saturdays
even more special than they
are. Local business could do
something special in front of
their stores during the day,
restaurants could bake holiday
cookies for us all and we could
get some projection screens in
the park for football games.
Find a reason to bring this
community together and
celebrate not just the holidays
but the fact that each and
every one of us makes this
place paradise.
And by all means, bring a chair.

South Venice is not
substandard. South Venice
is considered a substandard
area because we don't have
central water and sewers? I
live in South Venice because
we DO NOT have central
water and sewer. #1. If the grid
goes down, which they talked
about nationally that there
is a possibility; if we have an
EMP attack, or if we have a
solar flare that knocks out the
grid, I've got a hand pump
that I can put on my well and
I'll have water and I can put
it down my toilet. And then
there are those who have to
depend on the electricity to
pump out the sewage because
of the high water table in
Venice and in surrounding
areas. So you might want to
reconsider. We don't have a
substandard area and we don't
have a sewage bill because we
don't have pipes connecting
from house to house. We are
the highest rated area around.
Why support Obamacare?
All of the letters supporting
Obamacare why? How?
Obamacare forces Americans
with any amount of money
to provide healthcare for
anyone without money. The
only way Obamacare will
work is if many people sign
up for policies that they do
not need or want with inflated
rates to provide money for the
uninsured. In the process, the
Obamacare will destroy the
current healthcare insurance
industry. Not the best, but it
works. Obamacare will gen-
erate millions of new patients
with no provision to train new
doctors and drops compen-
sation to doctors that will
drive them out of medicine.
Most primary care doctors
are not driving Mercedes and
living in beachfront homes.
Most are still trying to pay off
school debt, opening an office
and hiring a massive staff for
all the paperwork required
by Obamacare. How many
Americans are working part
time so their employees can
avoid Obamacare? How many


Let 'em


Have It


have lost their jobs? How many
have lost their healthcare
policy because of Obamacare?
Did someone say you can keep
your policy if you like it? I don't
know how many Americans
can support Obamacare.
Obamacare will not help
anybody and will destroy the
insurance industry and the
healthcare industry. Then what
do you have?
Forget Circus Arena. Let the
circus go. The circus is gone
and has been gone since 1992.
The circus is just up the road
in Sarasota and Tampa. Why
repeat it here? Venice has so
much that is Venice, why not
build on that? Attempts to
raise money for the arena all
failed miserably. That signifies
a lack of interest. Some people
like the idea of a circus arena,
but most do not. Let it go and
let's move on.
Obama, Obamacare
bad. I'm a very concerned
American about this
Obamacare and the person
who wrote the Let'em Have It
bragging. Either you're grossly
misinformed or ignorant.
Older members of both parties
should retire. They are way
past due to retire so the young,
fresh faces can have their say.
They are trying to preserve


our way of life here. Obama
is such a liar. Who can trust
him? How dangerous to think
he can change a law passed
by Congress without going to
Congress to change as it was
written. How many times has
he done this already? I and
millions of other Americans
are thinking to impeach him
for this. The only reason you
don't like Fox News is because
you know they are telling to
truth. Hey, we hardworking
people who are paying for
our insurance and like our
insurance, we should have
the freedom to choose what
we want. Face the truth about
Obama. He cannot be trusted.
He doesn't even know what
goes on in his own admin-
istration. Maybe if he would
stay in the Oval office and quit
running around the country
campaigning, maybe he would
know more.
Crazy ideas. Trickle down
stupidity has replaced trickle
down economics because
from Washington on down,
things are a fiasco. The idea of
moving the entire Seaboard
Avenue while they're going
to widen 41 what sort of
nightmare are they trying to
create? It makes no sense to
me. I have other things to say
that I would put my name on,
but it doesn't seem like you
print letters anymore. Where
have they been? I don't know.
Good luckVenice.
Silly behavior. In a good
socialist organization, the silly
behavior we have seen with
Obamacare would not have
occurred. All major changes
are risky. Once a decision is
made, everyone would be
expected to help in its success.
Constructive criticism would
be welcomed. No team players
would be eliminated by the
upper leadership. Successful
American corporations follow
the socialist behavior pattern.
An employee who publicly says
that company products are
inferior for his own personal
gain is no man's friend.

From Mrs. Claus: Look for me in Venice


Hello Venice.
I'm just dropping a
little note to let you know
how my holiday plans for
this year are shaping up.
I had such a delightful
time in Venice last year
that I will be handling
many of my holiday
preparations with you
again. Nothing that

Love the boat parade. I
just moved toVenice and
I love it. The boat parade
should continue, I hope. It
just seems to be a tradition
they work so hard at and
the people so much enjoy it.
Thank you for festival.
I want to thankVenice
MainStreet for having
the wonderful Blues and
Brews Festival. It was great.


Santa and the elves take
care of, just some of my
personal shopping and
a little time to indulge in
the holiday spirit.
Santa and I were both
in town for the Holiday
Parade. It's such a grand
way to see so many of our
friends in Venice and all
the darling children. I will
be checking to make sure
Santa has nothing but
good reports on all of you.
Santa and I hope to
hit the beaches before
he has to return to the
North Pole. We love to
search for the fossilized
shark teeth at Venice
Beach. I was hoping to
take Santa and the elves

I didn't know there were
that many "old" hippies in
Venice. It was wonderful.
Thank you very much.
Help with relief effort.
You Pro-Life people, you
need to give to the typhoon
relief effort. I did. Six or
seven children they can't
afford or feed. Come on!
We've got to change. We've
got to help these people
more. Not just give them
food, but give them a way
to take care of all those
children. They shouldn't
have all those children.


to Paw Park. Does any-
one one know if Paw Park
will admit the reindeer?
They do love a good
run on the beach.
Santa will return for the
Holiday Lighting. Neither
of us would miss that.
The lighting of the trees
and the children singing
just fill us up with the
holiday spirit. After Santa
and the elves depart,
I have quite a social
schedule set up.
My great friend Ann
Thompson has invited
me to ride with her in the
Holiday Boat Parade. I'll
be making a special wave
to all my friends at the

Holiday prices. Crude
oil is $93 a barrel. Oil
companies just raised
gasoline 18 cents this week
at most stations. There's
plenty of gas supply. There
is nothing going on in the
Mideast. Nothing else that's
going to affect our prices.
Up 18 cents this week
and I can't figure out why.
Ooooooh...Thanksgiving.
It's a holiday coming up;
they're really going to get
us one way or another.

EATING VEGETABLES

STRENGTHENS BONES
While numerous studies have consistently shown that eating fruits and
vegetables is good for bones, a new study involving the natural pigments
found in plants (called carotenoids) may have discovered the reason why.
The four year study looked at changes in bone mineral density at two
areas of the hip and lumbar spine in hundreds of men and women (average
age of 75 years). Researchers found that carotenoids (including alpha
carotene, beta cryptoxanthin, lycopene, and lutein plus zeaxanthin),
particularly lycopene, were associated with some level of protection
against losses in bone mineral density at the hip in men and at the lumbar
spine in women. These results suggest there is a protective effect exerted
by carotenoids against bone loss in older adults.
P.S. There are more than 600 different types of carotenoids, the red,
orange, and yellow pigments that give plants such as carrots, strawberries,
and peppers their color.

make Venice beautiful are
in the holiday spirit all
year long.
They have asked me
to join them on one of
their Thursday morning
work parties, I hope I can
help to plant a tree or
flowering bush to Help
Keep Venice Beautiful.
I'm also invited to attend
the Venice Art Center for
their Holiday Tea. I do
so love a good tea. This
also allows me some
shopping time in their
gift shop.
So many lovely things
made by all your local
Venice artists. Speaking
of tea, I will be visiting

on issues of local interest.
Opinions expressed here
are solely those of the
callers. Personal attacks
on private individuals;
attacks on or commercials
for specific businesses;


the Upper Crust and the
3 Sisters Tea Room to
check out their baked
goods. I pride myself on
my baking and love to
chat with fellow bakers.
Christmas cookies are
still my specialty, but I do
love a good scone. I have
a number of errands
planned in the historic
downtown Shoppes.
Such a lovely area with so
many friendly shopkeep-
ers to help me find gifts
for Santa and the elves.
If you see me shopping,
you mustn't tell them
anything about it.
It's so hard to keep
their gifts secret. The

ments or attacks during

ions or comments other-

would like to participate,


Downtowners have
promised to point me to
the best shopping and
wrap my gifts afterward. I
am so looking forward to
it. The Street Legal folks
provide free transpor-
tation downtown, so I
can carry my purchases
back to the sleigh and get
more shopping in.
If you need to reach
me, leave word with the
Venice MainStreet office.
I check in with them dai-
ly for all the local events
and the best shopping.
I hope to see you all

Marino's 31 leads Indians to 56-53 OT victory


By NATE COWAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Venice Indians guard
Dom Marino really
likes his new home. The
Riverview transfer scored
31 points, including the
game-winning layup, as
the Indians defeated the
visiting Bayshore Bruins,
56-53, Nov. 26 in the New
Teepee.
He added 11 rebounds,
nine steals and two as-
sists to go with his strong
scoring effort.
"He (Marino) is such
a competitor," Venice
Coach James Slaton said.
"He works so hard and
just wants to get better."
Venice trailed most
of the game and closed
the gap to two points
on multiple occasions,
but couldn't get over the
hump. Trailing by two
points with 9.8 seconds
left, Dillon Marksbury
found Brent Store on
an inbounds pass for
the game-tying layup to
make the score, 49-49.
"After I missed that free
throw, Brent came up big
for us with that drive,"
Marino said.
Slaton said, "We drew
up that play for Brent in
the last timeout, and he
made the drive and layup
to send us into overtime."
In overtime, the Bruins
took a quick 51-49 lead
as Scooter McDuffie
made a layup. Venice
guard John Cokley hit


one of two free throws
to close within 51-50.
Bayshore turned the ball
over on their next pos-
session and Cokley found
Marino for a layup to put
the Indians up, 52-51.
Justin Harris tied the
game at 52 for the Bruins
by making one of two
free throws, and Wesley
Jackson also made one
of two free throws to give
Bayshore a 53-52 lead.
Cokley missed a three-
point shot on the Indians'
next possession, but
Marino grabbed the offen-
sive rebound and made
the put-back to give Venice
a 54-53 lead they would
never give up. Marino then
hit two free throws to put
Venice up, 56-53.
Bayshore had two
three-point shots by
Harris and Jackson, but
both rimmed out to
secure the Venice victory.
'Anytime you win a
close game, it's good and
helps the team develop
their character," Slaton
said. "It's nice to win by
20 or 30, but you don't
learn anything about
yourself. These last two
games have been close,
but we pulled them out."
The Indians went up
quickly 11-6 to start the
game before the Bruins
used a 2-2-1 press to
stifle the Indians' offense.
Bayshore forced 12
first-half turnovers and
outscored Venice 31-17
to take a 37-28 lead going

double.


into halftime.
"I think we started to
play too fast," Slaton said.
"We made one or two
passes and tried to get a
look. We also didn't play
perimeter defense like we
can, and Bayshore got a
lot of easy looks."
Venice clamped down
on defense in the third


quarter, allowing just two
free throws by Harris. The
Indians also switched
their offensive strategy to
allow Marino to get to the
basket and create.
"They went man, so we
went to our dribble-drive
offense," Marino said.
"It was the best fit at the
time."

John Cokley launched a three-pointer during the second quarter
of Venice's win over Bayshore. Cokley had a key assist late in the


game.
In the fourth quarter,
the Indians got to within
two on a Jake McFarlane
jump shot, but the
Bruins used some strong
offensive rebounding by
Harris and McDuffie to
extend the lead to 48-42.
Marskbury hit a three
to make the score 48-45,
and Marino followed


with a layup to make the
score 48-47 and set up
Store's heroics.
"These two wins are
great because we have a
tough week coming up
next week," Slaton said.
"We play Port Charlotte,
Riverview and Island
Coast, so it's nice to have
these two wins."

STAFF REPORT

Trey Burton's career
as a Florida Gator came
to a screeching halt on
the third longest gain
of his college career
Saturday.
Lined up at quarter-
back, the senior took
the shotgun snap, faked
a handoff to sweeping
receiver Solomon
Patten, and burst
through the middle
of the Florida State
defense.
Fifty yards later,
Burton was dragged
down from behind, his
left shoulder crashing
into Florida Field. He
would not return, and
with the Gators wrap-
ping up a disappointing
4-8 season, there won't
be a bowl game to play
in, either.
"Obviously you don't
want to go out like
that," Burton told the
Gainesville Sun. "I felt
like I let my team down
a little bit. But it's obvi-
ously not something I
can control. I just wish
I could have been there
to finish it up."
Despite using Burton
sparingly at quar-
terback this season,
Florida head coach
Will Muschamp said
Saturday's game plan
revolved around the
2010 Venice High grad.
"We were probably
going to have 30-
35 plays with Trey

in September. The senior finished with 607 all-purpose yards


this season.

(at quarterback),"
Muschamp said. "Some
of the misdirection runs
now go out of the game
plan, so you gotta make
adjustments and you
gotta change.
"I hurt for Trey
because he's a senior,
his last game in The
Swamp. So very difficult
for him. He's a great
young man. It just
kind of sums up what's
happened this year.
Very frustrating."


Burton is being
considered for a spot
in the Senior Bowl, the
top showcase event for
draft-eligible college
players. But he wasn't
thinking about that
Saturday.
"I obviously wanted
it to go a different
way, but I'm extremely
thankful for the four
years I had here,"
Burton told the Sun.
"I'll always be proud to
be a Gator."

World War II vet aims to break his age


We've come a long way
to visit, so there's no way
Ray's going to back out
of our golf date now just
because the arthritis in
his knee his acting up.
At a restaurant that
first night, he can barely
swivel his right leg out of
the car, and when we get
inside he has to struggle
to get the same knee past
the table leg just so he
can take his seat in the
booth.
"Don't worry," Ray
says. "I'll be fine."
The next morning,


we're talking about golf
again and his eyes are
tearing up so much he
has to wipe them.
"I can be standing
over a ball getting ready
to hit and my eyes get
so watery I have to back
away," he says. "I get
these floaters, from mac-
ular degeneration. This is
getting ridiculous."
I'm surprised at how
open my father-in-law
is being with me. Ray is
a tough, working-class
guy, a John Wayne-style
man's man, a genuine
World War II hero who
landed on Normandy
Beach 14 days after
D-Day, fought his way
toward Germany in the
Battle of The Bulge, then
built and blew up bridges
in Germany, Austria and
Northern Italy with an
engineering brigade.
I guess if you survive


enough danger and live
to 87, a little infirmity
isn't going to stop your
golf game.
After dinner, Ray takes
the clubs he's going to
lend me to re-grip them
in his workshop. It's a
tiny but well-organized
and useful space, with
sets of small wrenches
and drill bits hung and
labeled neatly on the
wall.
Ray is shirtless, and
from behind him as he
works I can see his pow-
erful back and shoulders
sweating profusely. This
World War II engineer-
ing-brigade hero is now
a hard-working, jack-of-
all-trades craftsman with
a mission.
He's got the club shaft
in a vise on his work
table and he's slicing
the old grip with a razor
knife. Once he gets a


clean cut, he wriggles
and tugs on what's left of
the grip, then pulls like
hell to get it off. Ray may
be 87 with all kinds of
medical problems, but
he's still got tremendous
physical power and
total concentration and
determination.
Once he gets a grip
off, he unravels masking
tape from the shaft;
applies a fluid from a
container labeled "Grip
Solvent"; wipes the shaft
down; dries it; applies
new masking tape; coats
the masking tape with
another foul smelling
glue; takes a new grip
and jams it on; removes
excess glue from inside
the grip by widening the
hole at the end with a
golf tee and then squeez-
ing; wipes the new grip
clean; opens the vise and
takes the club out, laying


it on a table on the porch
to dry.
In the morning, we're
starting a round of golf
on a 95-degree Florida
day. Ray's down the
middle with every shot.
"Bogie golf," he says.
"That's all I want."
It's time to tee off on
No. 4, a par 3. Ray gets
up over his ball, then
seems suddenly woozy
and backs away.
'Are you OK?" I ask
quietly. "We can quit any
time."
A minute passes.
"I'm OK now," he says,
wiping his eyes with the
back of his hand. "The
ball just started looking
like an egg."
He's down the middle
again, and approaches
his second shot from
about 25 yards out, wast-
ing no time with practice
swings. Ray's ball hits


the green, rolls, rolls, it's
heading for it's in the
hole!
Ray makes a birdie
with a ball that looked
like an egg on the tee box!
Forget about faltering,
forget about quitting.
This old soldier's no-quit
courage runs so deep
it's in the marrow of his
bones.
"Great birdie, Ray!"
As we move toward the
last hole, Ray tallies up
his score.
"With a bogie I could
break my age," he says.
"This could be my best
round since I got over
pneumonia last month."
So what do you think?
Do you think this 87-year-
old vet made his 86?

RECORD

FROM PAGE 1

while second and third
graders volunteered by
putting stickers on every
box of sandwiches.
Interact, a community
service club sponsored
by Rotary International,
endeavored to coordinate
an event that would
simultaneously serve the
community, raise funds for
their projects, and make
a name for the club on
campus.
In accordance with
their motto "Service above
self," once club members
decided to break a world
record, they sought to find
one that would be helpful
to others, and they decided
to make sandwiches
because after breaking the
record, they could donate
the sandwiches to the
hungry.
Because the
record-breaking event had
a goal of community ser-
vice, Walmart awarded two
grants to Interact for the
use of purchasing supplies
for the sandwiches. In ad-
dition, Pine View parents
donated about $1,000,
and Pine View members
of National Junior Honor

1FAM^3^1P gMW"JVW



OBCAT TRAIL


WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013


Society donated jelly.
Initially, Interact club
members decided to make
peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches because they
seemed simple and famil-
iar. An unexpected hurdle
in their plans arose in
March, when a Pine View
mother raised concerns
about using peanut butter
for the sandwiches.
Many students at Pine
View, she noted, had pea-
nut allergies, and making
thousands of peanut butter
and jelly sandwiches in the
cafeteria could leave trace
amounts of peanut butter,
endangering students with
allergies.
Kemp, Palmer, and other
Interact leaders agreed
with the Pine View mother
but also found themselves
in a bind because using
soy butter instead of pea-
nut butter would exponen-
tially increase their costs.
Interact contacted compa-
nies that produced peanut
butter replacements and
solicited donations.
Interact ended up
receiving 54 pounds of
WOWBUTTER, a toasted
soy spread using no
peanuts, in exchange for
promoting the product at
the event.
Another obstacle arose
when Eckrich Bacon


Lovers Deli Meats broke
the record only nine days
before PineView's attempt
was scheduled. This New
York deli made 2,706
sandwiches, which upped
the number Pine View had
to beat.
"We were not sorry to
break their record only nine
days later," Hayes said.
Covert echoed similar
comments.
"In true PineView
fashion, you didn't just
beat it by 100, 200, 300.You
beat it by 3,000. That is just
incredible," Covert said to
students at the ceremony.
To officially hold a
Guinness World record,
there are specific require-
ments, including video and
photographic proof and
witnesses unaffiliated with
the group breaking the
record. Pine View's TV pro-
duction class volunteered
to film the event from five
different angles so that, in
theory, Guinness could see
every single sandwich of
the 5,721 that were made.
Each of those sandwiches
was also inspected by the
officials who witnessed the
event.
Interact received so
much support for the
sandwich-making event
that, after purchasing
supplies, they had about


$1,000 to donate to their
global service project: Life
for a Child, an organization
that works to prevent
death of children due to
Type 1 diabetes. Life for a
Child provides insulin and
testing supplies to diabetic
children in Third World
countries.
Fighting diabetes is one
of the main causes that
Interact supports, and it
has supported this cause
since Kemp, Palmer, and
other friends founded the
club in 2011.
"Diabetes is growing at
a ridiculously high rate,"
Kemp said.
Kemp's younger brother
Daniel has Type 1 diabetes,
which inspired Kemp to
become involved in the
cause when he was in
fourth grade.
Although Pine View
broke the record when
Steve Largo was principal,
current principal Covert
expressed his appreciation
of an event that both
provided fun and fame for
Pine View and also served
to aid others. Both he and
Hayes expressed interest
in breaking another world
record at Pine View in the
future.
"We just have to find
what our next record will
be," Covert said.

South County Jazz Club adds




club dates, concerts and jams


By BOB BYLER
GUEST WRITER
Suncoast jazz fans
enjoy a sort of "melting
pot" of fine musicians
whose creative talents
enrich concerts, club
dates and jams.
The musical menu
expands as seasonal
residents return and
visiting players from
all over enhance many
bands and events.
The South County Jazz
Club has grown steadily.
Its third season offers
25 concerts by notable
leaders and guest stars
booked by its president,
Morrie Trumble. It has
expanded to four venues
in the area.
Recent concerts led
byVenice residents Bob
Delfausse and Bud Leeds
are examples of the club's
programs. Both events
showcased versatile
players in compatible
tunes and styles.
Delfausse's quintet
performed his arrange-
ments of tunes by classic
film, jazz and show


music composers during
an Oct. 25 concert at
the Venice Art Center.
These included "Falling
in Love with Love," "I've
Got You Under my Skin,"
"Poinciana," "Time After
Time" and "Long Ago
and Far Away."
Quintet members, who
also play in the Sarasota
Jazz Project big band,
were Tony Benade on sax
and flute, Jerry Eckert
on piano, Dave Hubbell
on bass guitar and Rich
MacDonald on drums.
Their resumes include
performances with fa-
mous bands and artists,
composing and arrang-
ing, teaching, directing
events and recording.
The concert included
Eckert's arrangement of
"Undecided," sung in
1938 by Ella Fitzgerald
with Chick Webb.
Delfausse taught music
theory and conducting
for 22 years at Wagner
College. He played
trumpet in big bands,
combos, Latin bands
and shows in New York
City, and he led a brass


quintet. He also is a
pianist, composer and
arranger. His wife, Ann,
is a cellist with the Venice
Symphony. They became
seasonal residents two
years ago.
Bob plays trumpet in
Venice Concert, Royal
Aires, Al Pierce and
Sarasota Jazz Project
bands, piano with
Good Time Groove
and Gentlemen of Jazz
bands and subs in
Sophisticated Swing and
Ken Loomer bands and
others.
An eight-member
dixieland ensemble led
by clarinetist Bud Leed
was featured in concert
at the Englewood Art
Center Nov. 8. It was a
lively musical afternoon,
opening with Mary
Luckett playing bagpipes
on "Amazing Grace" as
he walked down the aisle.
Some other well-
played tunes were
"Bourbon Street Parade,"
"Wolverine Blues,"
"Honeysuckle Rose," and
the closing "Just a Little
While to Stay Here."


Highlights included
banjoist Mike Evans' vo-
cal, including the verse,
on "Louisiana Fairytale,"
Leeds plaintive solo on
Sidney Bechet's "Si Tu
Vois Ma Mere," and em-
pathetic duets by trom-
bonists Mary Luckett and
Gordon Moore. Others in
the group were drummer
Tony Martin, trumpeter
Joe Bruno, bassist Don
Mopsick and pianist
Keith Carmen.
These musicians are
well-known as leaders
and members of bands
around the Suncoast and
in many other states.
They know the repertoire
so well that they re-
sponded to Leeds' hand
signals for key changes
and solos as if they had
rehearsed, but they had
not.
Leeds led Jazz Affair
groups for the Venice
Symphony for 10 years
and Dixie Spirit from
1999 at T.J. Carney's until
it closed for renovations
and rebranding earlier
this year. Leeds produces
concerts at Bay Indies

SENIOR WRITER
The story so far: I've
gawked at tall buildings,
seen lewd puppets, been
dazzled by Times Square
and eaten the freshest bagel
on Earth.

Our original plan was to
take bus and boat tours of
the city on Friday but we'd
postponed them because
of the threat of rain.
Saturday was beautiful, so
we headed to Times Square
again to get our tickets.
It's far less impressive in
the daylight, even though
our tour line was based at
Madame Tussaud's Wax
Museum, which had a
full-size figure of Justin
Timberlake outside.
If you go to the museum,


take note: The security
guards do not find it amus-
ing if you walk around with
matches trying to light the
candles.
We decided to take the
boat tour first, so it was
on to the pier mere blocks
away really long New
York blocks.
Most of the city is laid
out in a grid because the
earliest parts developed on
their own and have streets
criss-crossing like spaghetti
- six streets come together
at one particular intersec-
tion in the villages. City
planners weren't going to
allow the rest of New York
to develop in the same way.
The grid makes it
pretty easy to get around,
once you deal with a few
street-name anomalies


numbered, except when
they're not). But there are
short city blocks, long
city blocks and really long
city blocks, depending on
where you are and which
way you're heading.
Short is better. MUCH
better.
The boat ride is a de-
lightful way to see the city
panorama from the pier to
the UN and back, including
a pass-by of the Statue of
Liberty, and you'll get a real
education, if you're lucky
enough to get a funny,
well-spoken native tour
guide like Mike, the one
on our boat. (Make sure
you tip on the way out,
and if you get Mike, make
small talk with him about
grammar. Seriously.)
We had to go back to

Holiday travel with hearing loss


Traveling during the
holidays can be more
stressful than usual lost
luggage, jet lag, airport
delays, airport security.
Surveys show people
with hearing loss rate
airport sound systems
among the most difficult
to hear, making travel
particularly stressful.

Hints for airline
travel
1. When making flight
reservations, request text
message alerts.
2. Look for visual clues.
Many airports use LED


screens with written in-
formation about flights.
3. If there are no
screens, let the agents
know you have a hearing
problem. Ask them to
let you know about any
important changes.
4. Sit near the gate and
keep an eye on the agents
and any sudden flurry of
activity. You may be able
to lip-read (if the micro-
phone is not in front of
their mouth).
5. Many airports use
the loop system. Look for
the blue ear sign. Turn
on the telecoil in your
hearing aid or cochlear
implant to receive sound
directly to your ears.
6. Know that you are
allowed to go through se-
curity checkpoints, while
wearing your hearing
aids or cochlear implants.
Keep them on to ensure
more successful com-
munication. If you are
still concerned, request a


pat-down security check.
7. Carry printed copies
of all your reservations.
8. Keep your hearing
aids, cochlear implants,
batteries, tubing and
spare parts with you,
where they are accessible.
Do not pack them in your
checked baggage.
9. If you are traveling to a
warmer climate, take your
dehumidifier along. It will
ensure that moisture stays
out of your aids and it is a
good storage place when
you go swimming.
10. Hearing equipment
does not interfere with
the plane's computer-
ized system. It is not
necessary to remove
them during the flight.
However, if you find
the airplane noise too
loud, you can lower the
volume or take them off.
11. If your ears are
affected by pressure
equalization, try ear-
planes (in the drug store


for about $5).
12. Let your seat mate
know you are not able to
hear.
13. Make sure you have
all your hearing equip-
ment with you when you
exit the airplane.
If you have concerns
about flying with hearing
equipment, contact TSA
Cares. This is a hotline for
people with disabilities or
medical conditions. Call
855-787-2227 or visit Tsa.
gov/traveler-information/
travelers-disabilities-and-
medical-conditions.

Hints for staying
at a hotel
1. Choose a hotel that
offers assistance to the
deaf and hard of hearing
(the Americans with
Disabilities Act requires
that hotels provide accom-
modations. Some smaller
bed and breakfasts are
exempt.)


2. Let the hotel know
when making the
reservation that you have
a hearing loss and will
need accommodation.
3. Ask what types of
accommodations are
offered- closed-cap-
tioned television, flashing
smoke detector, vibrating
alarm clock, flashing
phone ringer, TTY phone
services and knock-on-
door alert system.

Hint for staying in
relatives' home
Keep your hearing equip-
ment in the same place
every night out of reach of
curious small children and
hungry animals.
You need not face hear-
ing loss alone. You can re-
ceive support, education
and advocacy from the
mentors and members of
the local chapter of the
Hearing Loss Association
of America by contacting

'Swingin' Christmas' wobbles and bounces along


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Written and directed
byVictor Legaretta, the
Broadway Palm Dinner
Theatre production of
"Swingin' Christmas"
seems to have been
tainted by the mischie-
vous elf mentioned in
the first scene.
Supposedly the story
of the romance of Mr.
and Mrs. Claus (Paul
Glodfelter and Autumn
O'Ryan), the two-act
musical show needs
some rearranging and
some cutting. Amy Marie
McCleary's choreography
is terrific but two nearly


back-to-back mod num-
bers in the first act need
to be separated even
though both are visually
stunning.
It is too much of a
good thing and espe-
cially apparent in the
un-Christmassy first act.
Instead we get "Oh, How
I Hate to Get Up in the
Morning" and "Shakin'
the Blues Away" sepa-
rated by "We Are Santa's
Elves." Consider that
Santa Claus has been
around since long before
the 20th century yet the
music of his romance
with Mrs. Claus is all
20th century.


Act two is all about
Christmas with such
pop tunes as "Jingle Bell
Rock," "Rockin' Around
the Christmas Tree,"
"Here Comes Santa
Claus" and "Over the
River and Through the
Woods." Glodfelter does
a good Elvis impression
on "Blue Christmas,"
which he sings with the
females in the cast.
Then we go for a
"Sleigh Ride in the Park."
It is like no sleigh ride
ever as the passengers
are bounced and jarred
as though on Thunder
Mountain Railway in the
Magic Kingdom. A sleigh


ride through the snow -
especially in a park is
a pleasant experience.
Such a ride is smooth,
not bouncy. Perhaps this
was an attempt at humor
by someone unfamiliar
with sleigh rides.
Act two has a visually
stunning number that
brings the show to a per-
fect close with "Sacred
Trio" and "0 Holy Night."
Sadly, it did not.
Instead, the curtain
rises yet again and the
scene switches from
the church and choir to
the Claus home at the
North Pole and a second
ending- "Santa Claus is
Coming to Town."


One ending is enough.
One act also would be
enough Act 2 is the
stronger act.
The best part of the
show is McCleary's
choreography and the
dancing by the strong
ensemble: Danielle
Barnes, Kiersten
Benzing, Emilia Brown,
Denzel Edmondson,
Timmy Hays, Donovan
Hoffer, Chris Kane,
Kerry Lambert, Jimmy
Robertson, Nina
Schrenkengost and Drew
Stark. Lead singers Nick
Lerew and Megan Lee
Miller handle their roles
well and the backup mu-
sic conducted by Loren


Strickland is fine.
As always, the buffet
provides a tasty begin-
ning. With serious cut-
ting and rearranging, this
holiday show could be
almost as good. Coming
on the heels of "CATS,"
which was so terrific, this
was a major disappoint-
ment. Opening Dec. 28
and playing through
Feb. 15 is "South Pacific."
"Swingin' Christmas"
continues through
Dec. 25 at the Broadway
Palm Dinner Theatre,
1380 Colonial Blvd., Fort
Myers. For tickets, call
239-278-4422 or visit:

Homeless Sarasota families get child care


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

The Early Learning
Coalition of Sarasota
County is overseeing a
new state program that
is allowing easier access
to child care for area
homeless families.
In July, Early Learning
came out with new,
Florida Legislature-
mandated criteria stating
that children of homeless
families are eligible for
state-funded scholarships
on a priority basis for a
certain period of time.
The coalition, which
also receives assistance
from the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
in Venice, provides
administration and over-
sight of the local system


of early education for
preschool-age children in
Sarasota County, ensuring
quality child care, early
learning and family ac-
cess to services for young
children. It serves more
than 4,000 children.
"That's really a good
thing, because it opened
up for any child of a
homeless family that's
involved with a pro-
gram that offers case
management," coalition
Executive Director Janet
Kahn said. "It won't be
some random person
saying they're homeless
and needs child care. It
has to be referred from
an organization that's
part of the Suncoast
Partnership to End
Homelessness."
Kahn said Suncoast


Partnership has a list of
the different programs in
the community that work
with families and provide
case management.
"We have memoran-
dums of understanding
with those organizations
that they can refer fami-
lies who need child care
to us so we can now offer
those services with our
state dollars," she said.
"Now we can use foun-
dation money to extend
beyond the time-limited
referral or for a family
that might need addi-
tional assistance related
to child care."
The coalition covers
the cost of child care.
It has contracts with
sites that are considered
school-readiness provid-
ers, meaning the sites meet


criteria established by state
legislation. The parent
chooses a facility, then the
coalition pays for the child
care based on rates that it
has established for various
ages. Parents do have a
co-pay, but for someone
who has very little income,
it's nominal.
Kahn said the coalition
has served about 15
families countywide
since the legislation
took effect in July. She
added that based on
the numbers of home-
less expert Dr. Robert
Marbut's recent survey,
showing there were
637 homeless children
in Sarasota County-
there's potential to help
at least 100 kids. Prior to
getting state funding, the
coalition was able to help


about six children.
Marbut maintains
Englewood leads the
county in homeless fam-
ilies, followed closely by
North Port and Nokomis.
"It's a new service and
people are still finding
their way," Kahn said.
"Some of those children
might already be in a
shelter situation. Even
though we see this broad
number of homeless
children out there, not all
of them would necessari-
ly need child care."
The law also address-
es children who are
in domestic violence
situations. Kahn said
there already have
been some referrals
from the Safe Place and
Rape Crisis Center of
Sarasota County, and


other domestic violence
shelters.
"We want to be able
to serve all the children
who need it who are in
a homeless situation,
and what we see is that it
provides a benefit for the
child in an early learning
program where they're
getting education, (and)
getting screenings and
assessments, so we can
catch any concerns early,"
Kahn said. "If there are
100 children out there be-
tween the ages of 0 and 5
that need to be served, we
want to be able to serve
them, and as our commu-
nity works on the issue of
homelessness, hopefully
the number of children
in those situations will be
reduced over time."

County picks business park over sports complex


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County
commissioners used a
recent workshop to pick
between a proposed
sports complex or office/
industrial park on a 42-
acre plot of surplus land
in North County, with
the office park ultimately
being chosen based on
its ability to be more of
an economic driver for
the community.
The workshop gave the
public a look at how the
invitation to negotiate,
or ITN, process works.
By definition, an ITN is
a formal, competitive
solicitation for the
purchase of goods and/
or services, where factors
other than price, such
as design and scope of
work, are to be con-
sidered in the award
determination.
Commissioners
reviewed the submis-
sions from Benderson
Development and
Goodsports Inc. for
the land located at the


corner of Fruitville
and Coburn roads in
Sarasota, about a mile
east of Interstate 75.
Benderson's proposal
included a business park
for light manufacturing,
assembly warehousing,
distribution, research
and development and
related offices. Initial
construction includes
a 200,000-square-foot
multi-tenant building.
Larry Fineberg of
Benderson Development
said he gets calls from
companies wanting
to come to Sarasota
and be near the inter-
state, adding he had a
company that would
be willing to sign a
lease for 15,000 square
feet. Commissioners
dissected the design of
the buildings on the site,
with Commissioner Nora
Patterson going as far
as saying "some of them
look like Army barracks."
"We want to build
facilities that will attract
any kind of business,"
Fineberg said. "What
we're trying to bring


in are businesses that
attract job creation. We're
going to make it fit with
everything else around
there and make every-
thing around there more
valuable."
A drawing of
Goodsports' proposed
complex presented
last Tuesday includes
two event fields, a
60,000-square-foot field
house, hotel, village cen-
ter and farmers market.
Goodsports recently had
a project approved in
Wichita, Kan., and has
been approached by the
city of Indianapolis for
another. Goodsports vice
president of develop-
ment Anthony Homer
said the park could
bring in 7,000 people on
weekends for events.
Benderson has offered
$2.5 million for the
land. In its proposal,
Goodsports offered to
lease the land for $1
per year for 50 years,
with two 25-year exten-
sions. Homer said that
Goodsports was open
to negotiating on lease


terms if it was chosen.
Documents state
company officials
had planned to invest
about $65 million in the
property. Benderson's
proposal did not list
cost estimates for the
buildings.
Commissioners
voted 3-2 to accept the
Benderson proposal.
Commissioner Joe
Barbetta, who sits on
the Sarasota County
Economic Development
Corporation's board of
directors, said that board
has been concerned
about a lack of facilities
in the county similar to
the Benderson proposal
for the last two years.
Commissioner
Christine Robinson said
she's had companies
call her and specifically
say they want a Sarasota
address, despite oppor-
tunities in South County.
"The location really
does matter in this
situation," Robinson
said. "I wish we could fill
more in South County,
but these folks want the


Sarasota address and
they want to be near the
airport."
Patterson and
Commissioner Charles
Hines were the dissent-
ing votes. Hines said he
wanted more options
because the ITN was only


advertised for 45 days.
"The proposals were
too conceptual in a way,"
Hines said. "I was really
looking for more detail
and maybe some other
proposals."

HURDLE CLEARED FOR SPORTS PARK
In other business last Tuesday, county commissioners learned that
neighbors ofa 115-acre section of land would remove about 20 feet
of fencing, clearing the way for the county to move forward with the
purchase of the vacant property near the Newtown area of Sarasota
with the hope of eventually turning it into a sports park.
Earlier this month, commissioners unanimously voted to spend
$2.2 million for the 115-acre parcel, located on the northwest corner
of the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Way and Tuttle Avenue
on the north side of downtown Sarasota. The county was given the
option of purchasing the land as part of a potential deal where it would
acquire the utility assets of Dolomite Utilities Corp. and Aqua Utilities
Florida Inc., whose plant is located near University Parkway and 1-75 in
Sarasota.
County officials have said there is a need for more athletic fields;
current facilities are already heavily used by football and soccer leagues
in the county. Plans have not been revealed as to what kind of fields
would be placed on the property, which is close to Ed Smith Stadium
and its practice fields, along with a Cal Ripken baseball complex
located just across the street.
The county is expected to close on the Dolomite deal next month.
According to documents, the property would be paid for using surtax
revenue from the penny sales tax.

NYC
FROM PAGE 1
Times Square to get on
the tour bus. (We're still
puzzling over why the
pier isn't a stop on the
bus tour route.) It was
worth it, though, to get
a glimpse of The Naked
Cowboy alas, not the
original, just a franchisee
whose outfit consisted of
the mandatory cowboy
hat, guitar, tighty whites
(talk about deceptive
advertising) and boots.
It's the same uniform
rain or shine, hot or
cold. (For franchise
information or to hire
The Naked Cowboy to
officiate your wedding,
visit you guessed it -
NakedCowboy.com.)
By riding the bus after
the boat tour, you see the
sights with a little bit of
context. You can jump
off at any stop to explore
more in depth and get
back on at your conve-
nience, but whatever you
do, if seated on the upper
level, DON'T stand up
while the bus is in motion.
That's dangerous to be-
gin with, but street signs
and traffic lights hang so
low that you could easily
suffer a head injury from
getting up just enough to
stretch a little.
We got off the bus in
order to go to a Middle
Eastern restaurant
called Moustache for
what by then was a very
late lunch. Though we
were the only people
there, the service left
something to be desired,
partly because, for the
first and only time, we


had a bit of a language
barrier, resulting in my
being served the wrong
beer.
The place was clean,
though, and the food was
excellent. I recommend
the merguez sandwich,
which can feed two easily.
Or just me.
Many restaurants
display their sanitation
rating in their front win-
dow. I never saw one that
wasn't an "A," so either
the restaurant has the op-
tion of where to display it
or the ratings are a result
of grade inflation.
They also commonly
display their Zagat Survey
rating; 20 and higher on
a 0-30 scale is considered
good for food.
I don't know how much
weight to give those
numbers either, since
they can't be kept cur-
rent, and there's always
a risk of a bad meal in
even the best eatery. I
can tell you I never saw
a rating lower than 20,
which is not surprising,
since these numbers
definitely don't have to
be displayed.
Regardless, New York
is a food-lover's paradise.
There's probably no
cuisine not represented
and nothing you can't get
at any hour of the day or
night, eat in or delivery.
In some areas of the city,
your greatest risk of be-
ing hit by a vehicle is not
by a car but by someone
on a bike delivering food.
And the prices weren't
as high as I expected.
Our meals were in the
$12-$20 range (not
counting beverages),
which I think is entirely
appropriate for a quality
meal in a unique restau-
rant locally, let alone in
NewYork.
You can certainly pay
a lot more for dinner
- a magazine article
mentioned a $118 steak
(for two, supposedly),
which I hope the chef
cuts and feeds to you.
But you can eat very well

streets go. The power is all in the buildings.


for reasonable prices and
pretty well for a bargain.
Many places in Midtown
Manhattan offer a $1.99
breakfast, and there are
carts all over offering
all kinds of food at low
prices.
After lunch, we went
to Veniero's Pasticceria &
Caffe, which bills itself as
America's oldest Italian
pastry shop. It's been in
business since 1894, so
it could be true. It was
packed with customers
late Saturday afternoon,
many of them probably
carrying on a family
tradition by shopping
there. But they could
have waited -Veniero's
would be open until
1 a.m., later than some
bars around here.
One of New York's
many charms is the
history of its businesses.
Our bus tour guide was
constantly pointing out
stores and restaurants
founded long before
Venice was a city, with
many of them still owned
by the original family, as
Veniero's is.
You have to admire
that kind of staying
power. I could name
places in this area that
are in their fourth or fifth
incarnation just in the 28
years I've lived here.
We had talked about
going back to Greenwich
Village, which we saw
from the bus, to get


a drink and listen to
music Saturday night
but lacked the ambition
to leave the apartment.
Hence, I missed out on
what would have been
my final quintessential
New York experience of
this visit: a subway ride.
We strolled through
Central Park for a bit
on the way to breakfast
Sunday morning, and
I got to spend a few
minutes in the American
Museum of Natural
History, the setting for
the movie "Night at the
Museum." It's another
of the places where
local knowledge comes in
handy.
You have to have a
ticket to get in, with
a suggested general
admission price of $22.
The word "suggested"
means exactly what it
says it's suggested you
pay $22. But you can
"suggest" you'd rather
pay a different, lower
amount, and it will be
accepted, no questions
asked (but only if you get
your tickets in person;
online, $22 isn't a mere
suggestion).
I'm sure the museum
- dedicated to Theodore
Roosevelt is worth
every penny, but I only
wanted to go in the
museum shop, for which
I needed a ticket, so we
paid less. Yes, we peeked
at the dinosaur exhibit,

The Wall Street bull started life as a piece of guerrilla art it
appeared in a park overnight and immediately became so
popular it was moved to its current location, where it's usually


mobbed by tourists.
but we each spent more
than $22 in the store, so
the museum made out
OK.
After that, it was time
to catch a flight. And
that was just the taxi ride
to LaGuardia. We also
needed to get on a plane
back to Florida.
A long weekend was
just enough to get a good
taste of all that New York
has to offer, but far too
little to truly experience
all that makes it the
greatest city in the world.
Does another city have
a Museum Mile nine
museums on one street?
How can you do them
justice in three days?
My guess is that would
take a month for full
immersion, which isn't
practical for us working
stiffs who can't be on
vacation that long.
It would also take a lot
more money, especially
if you're going to go in
style. I think you'd need
to see a Broadway show
(the best seats for the
top shows go for more
than $300 each); attend a
sporting event (the least
you'd pay for a courtside
seat at a Knicks game at
Madison Square Garden
is more than $700, plus
fees); enjoy a really
fancy meal, such as the
aforementioned $118
steak (with side dishes

offered a la carte, I'd bet);
and do several dozen
other things you can't do
elsewhere.
Since I have limited
time and less money, I'll
have to settle for a lot
of little bites at the Big
Apple.
I'm already looking
forward to the next one.

Venice High students donate for Thanksgiving


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT
Students from several
Venice High School
classrooms participated
in a week-long fundraiser
called See the Change,
Nov. 11-15. The drive
raised $1,237 to buy
Thanksgiving meals at
Publix for local families
in need.
The students placed
buckets to collect coins
from students in 25


classrooms for five
days.
The project was
planned by the peer
counseling group
Wolfe Peers Assisting
and Counseling, also
known as Wolfe PAC. The
classroom that collected
the most change won a
breakfast party.
Wolfe PAC, advised by
School Counselor and
Senior Activities Adviser
Nicole Wolfe, was formed
in 2008 with a grant from


New College of Florida
and the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation.
Ten students in grades
10-12 participate in the
program.
Wolfe PAC activities
include mediating peer
conflicts, working with
middle school students
on their transition to
high school, mentoring
VHS freshmen and
helping and counsel-
ing special-education
students.


VHS is located at
1 Indian Ave. in Venice.

Chorus of the Keys attracts young singers


STAFF REPORT
Despite being the
oldest arts organization
in the Sarasota area, the
64-year old Chorus of the
Keys is growing younger.
In an effort to attract
younger singers from
across the state, the
chorus has installed a
new leadership team that
combines youth, energy
and musical experience.
Last January, the
chorus brought in Byron
Poore, 35, from Land 0'
Lakes, Fla., as its director.
Then in September, the
chorus elected Patrick
Kilbane, 34, of Sarasota
to serve as president. In
October, to add wisdom
and experience to the
young leadership team,
the chorus added Duane
Fenn from Fort Myers to
serve as assistant director.
Despite his youth,
Byron Poore brings 20
years experience in
barbershop singing to
the chorus. His experi-
ence includes his role as
assistant director for the
Heralds of Harmony cho-
rus in Tampa and other
choruses in the state, and


Moxxi has a lot of moxie


Moxxi is a 1-year-old pit
bull terrier mix with bright
brown eyes. She weighs
47 pounds, is housebroken,
crate trained and knows
many commands. She has
lived with men, women
and children, and it wasn't
very pleasant. The children
were not nice to her, so she
needs a home with adults
or older teenagers to love
and respect her. She has
lived well with dogs and
cats. She likes chew ropes.
Visit Suncoast Humane
Society at 6781 San Casa
Drive, Englewood. To see if
this animal is still available
for adoption, call 941-474-
7884 or visit Humane.org.

serves about 200 meals a
week in their soup kitchen
on Saturday. They
conduct clothing drives.
Mary Petty, a volun-
teer and advocate for
the homeless, talked
to a small group about
homeless people often
being teenagers whose
families take off, leaving
them to fend for them-
selves. Some live in cars
and others make do with
friends, hoping to con-
tinue their schooling.
Mary talked about a
young man who was
on his own with a small
child. The wife took off.
He needed help with day
care and child care so he
could continue to work.


Mary and the Center
were able to help him
make a work schedule
with the employer that
made his life doable.

Experience Italy at Cafe Italiano


E;NIC.', December4 10, 2013


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Vince Formosa, owner of Cafe Italiano in
Arcadia, never has to look for a place that
serves food just like his mother used to
make, as many of the rest of us have to do.
That's because he is the one making the
food himself.
Using techniques and combinations of
ingredients that have been handed down
from his Italian immigrant grandmother
to his Chicago-raised mother to him,
Formosa has cultivated a menu and a style
of cooking that would make any mama
proud.
"Many of my dishes have evolved from


family recipes, like my homemade Italian
sausage and my meatballs;' he said. "I try
to maintain the same standards that my
parents and grandparents did. So I use only
the freshest and finest ingredients, and I
don't allow processed food in my restau-
rant or my home'."
Inside his 65-seat restaurant, Formosa
has re-created not only the food, but also
the atmosphere of an Italian cafe. There
are four separate dining rooms, making the
dining experience even more intimate, and
the walls are hand-painted in Venetian and
Italian landscapes. Outside are 25 more
seats in the arcade.
Each dish Formosa serves is freshly
prepared and made to order, right down


I ea

No


to the homemade marinara and Alfredo
sauces, so if it takes a little more time to do
that, it is worth it. After all, when Euro-
peans dine out, they keep a table for the
evening, taking time to fully enjoy each
course.
"I like to classify our restaurant as 'fine
dining in a casual setting,'" Formosa said.
"Our cuisine is Italian continental, with
some American cuisine involved, too."
Though there are some very popular
entree favorites on the Cafe Italiano menu,
like fettucini Alfredo, grouper piccata,
scampi Napolitano and Alfredo Florentine,
the restaurant is probably best known
for its brick oven pizza. Formosa says that
there is even one couple who frequently
drive over from the east coast for business,
and insist on having one of the pies each
time before they head back home.
"The pizza is a thin crust, 'Chicago tavern'
style," he said. "It's very similar to a pizza
you would find in New York or Connecticut.
We make all our own dough and all of our
sauces are my recipes and homemade."
And don't plan on leaving Cafe Italiano
before you have one of Formosa's home-


made desserts. His Italian cheesecake and
award-winning flourless dark truffle cake
will provide the perfect ending to your
authentic Italian dining experience.
Formosa says that he has enjoyed
bringing the recipes of his family and the
culture of the Italian people to his Arcadia
restaurant, having previously been in the
hospitality business for decades in Lee
County.
"People here have been so supportive (of
the restaurant)," he said. "It's a small town,
which is very different from where I was.
We're just very thankful to be here."
Mama would approve.
Cafe Italiano is at 117 West Oak Street
in Arcadia, and is open Tuesday through
Saturday for lunch and dinner. The hours
are 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., lunch and
4:30 to 8 p.m., dinner. Rooms in the restau-
rant can be rented for private parties and
Formosa also does outside catering, if you
would like someone else to cook for your
holiday gathering.
For more information, visit the Facebook
page or the website at www.cafeital-
ianopizzeria.com, or call 863-491-0044.

SUN CORRESPONDENT


When Joe Szych Sr. moved to Southwest
Florida, he couldn't find authentic Italian
pizza like he enjoyed at"Marco's Pizza"
while living in Toledo, Ohio. His son, Joe
Jr.,was employed at Marco's in Toledo for
14years. So, father asked son to move
to Florida and become his partner in
purchasing a "Marco's Pizza"franchise in
North Port. That was five years ago, and
business has been so successful that the
Szych's decided to open a second location at
19451 Cochran Blvd., in Port Charlotte, that
recently had its grand opening.
"I grew up on Marco's pizza'"Joe Jr. said.
"I'm pleased to be co-owner of a business
that I love. And I like Florida, but I miss the
seasons. I want to take my three young
children back there someday so that they
can enjoy some fun in the snow as I did as


a kid."
Marco's Pizza claims that their pizza
is so good because dough is made the
traditional way, fresh from scratch every
day. The sauce is made from vine-ripened
tomatoes just hours after picking, and a
signature blend of herbs and spices added;
a blend of three fresh cheeses, never
frozen, is at the heart of authentic, fresh
taste; hearty robust servings of real meat,
quality and abundance is the authentic
Italian way.
Build-your-own pizzas are available in
original or crispy thin crust styles. There are
20 toppings available, and garlic butter,
parmesan cheese and Roma seasoning are
free crust toppers.
Specialty pizzas are also available such
as Hawaiian chicken, meat supreme and
white cheezy. The latter has four types
of cheese including feta, bacon, onions,
sliced tomatoes and garlic butter sauce. It


was an award-winning pizza in California,
and excellent on a crispy thin crust. Try it;
you'll love it. For pepperoni lovers, try the
pepperoni magnifico which includes two
kinds of pepperoni.
Marco's offers a variety of salads, and
6-inch or 12-inch subs on rustic wheat or
Italian white rolls. According to Joe Jr., the
most popular is the Italiano that includes
ham, salami, provolone cheese, banana
peppers, tomatoes, red onions and sub
dressing.
For some extra fun, try the popular
cheezy bread (fresh-baked bread strips
with three types of cheese and garlic
butter, topped with parmesan and Roma
seasoning, served with pizza sauce and
ranch sauce for dipping), or the meatball
bake (Marco's meatballs and sausages
baked with signature sauce and cheese
blend).
Also on the menu are chicken wings,


chicken dippers and cinna squares (a
buttery fresh baked pastry, topped with
cinnamon, sugar and a side of vanilla
icing).
Business hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
on Sunday.
Marco's will delight groups, large or
small, for office meetings, luncheons, or
special events. If you need a fundraiser,
Marco's can help create a successful event.
Dine in or call 941-629-2929 for takeout,
or you may order online atwww.marcos.
com. Delivery is available within a five-mile
radius. Charge is $2.50 foran $8 minimum
order.
Go to the website to join Marco's email
club and receive a welcome reward
delivered straight to your inbox, a gift for
your birthday, and the freshest information
about Marco's specials.

OPENING THIS WEEK


Out of the Furnace I Runtime: 1 hr.
56 min. I Rated R for strong violence,
language and drug content.
From Scott Cooper, the critically acclaimed writer
and director of "Crazy Heart:'" comes a gripping and
gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance and
justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) has a rough
life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the


local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally
ill father by night. When Russell's brother Rodney
(Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in
Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless
crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously
disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so -
with nothing left to lose Russell takes matters
into his own hands, putting his life on the line to
seek justice for his brother. The impressive cast of
Christian Bale and Woody Harrelson are rounded


out by Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Willem
Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard.

with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means
that they must turn around and leave their family
and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour"

Christmas in



Rotonda parade


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Englewood area residents and families
from surrounding communities are looking
forward to attending a seventh annual
Rotonda West Christmas Parade this
Saturday.
Over 60 floats and marching units are
expected to participate, and thousands
of spectators will be lining the parade
route. The theme this year is "Christmas in
Rotonda" and the Rotonda West Associ-
ation's Community Relations committee
invites parade attendees to help by
donating nonperishable food items. Golf
carts donated by Thoroughbred Golf Carts
will travel the parade route to pick up
donations. Last year attendees donated
nearly 2,000 pounds of canned goods, toys
and more than $600 in cash and checks. It's
important to note that food and funds go
directly to beneficiary Englewood Helping
Hand. Giffels and Webster, an engineering
firm headed by company chairman
Jonathon Cole, has loaned the parade
committee tractors and a flatbed trailer
for transporting donations to the Helping
Hand organization.
Expected to participate in the parade
are faith-based groups and churches, the
American Legion, the Cultural Guild of the
Greater Cape Haze Peninsula, antique car
enthusiasts, the Rotonda West Women's
Club, The Lemon Bay High School Marching
Band, equestrian riders, civic and service
organizations, small businesses, nonprofit
community organizations, musical groups
and members of the local VFW post. The
honor guard from the Rotonda VFW Post
10476 and the High School's ROTC unit will

lead the parade and carry the colors of
the four military branches. As always, Mr.
and Mrs. Claus will arrive by sleigh at the
end of the parade to officially usher in the
Christmas season.
"Our parade has a small town, down-
home spirit, and marchers and spectators
always have fun with it. Most parades
take place in downtown business districts
while ours proceeds along the community's
residential area;' said Earl Haas, parade
committee chairman:' Haas is assisted by
members Russ Kulp and Linda Bondeson
(committee co-chairs), Don Mahon, Sue
Killion, Ginni Mahon and Ruth Sargent.
Judges Ken and Tammy Birdsong
and Chris Phelps will keep score at the
mid-point of the parade. Birdsong, along
with Ken Kuenzie, will broadcast live on
WENG radio during the event. "Clowns
Like Us," the big winners last year, will be
on hand to defend their title on Saturday.
No entry fee is required, and late comers
are welcome to register and join the
parade. They may, however, have to
take up the rear, which isn't a problem,
according to Chairman Haas, "since that's
where Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive on the
scene."
At 2 p.m. on Dec. 7 the parade sets off
from Rotonda Boulevard North, proceeds
east on Rotonda North towards Rotonda
Circle and continues for about three miles
to the Oakland Hills Marina (across from
the Rotonda Hills Restaurant). Spectators
are encouraged to bring chairs and water in
order to be comfortable during the parade. A
rain date has been set of Dec. 8. Go to: www.
rotondawest.org or email rotondwestchrist

I Fine Arts Feature on


Dearborn


By Chris Kourapis
SUN CORRESPONDENT

A two-day juried Winter Fine Arts Festival
will be featured this weekend on Historic
Dearborn Street in Englewood. "We do not
charge admission;' explained chairman and
community activist, Janet Landis, "but we do
request a one dollar donation with proceeds
benefiting Englewood community charities.
Streets will be blocked off to vehicle
traffic from Mango Street to Cedar Street to
allow for a pedestrian-only exhibition area."
Landis and her crew of volunteers are happy
that members of the junior varsity and
varsity Lemon Bay High School girls soccer
teams and soccer coach, Katie Cooke, will be
greeting people and providing them with
smiley face stickers at the gate. Members
who volunteer earn credit for their commu-
nity service.
On Saturday and Sunday, food vendor
Gypsy Wagon will be offering hot dogs,
coffee, scones and cinnamon buns, and on
Sunday, vendor Jonesz BBQ will be serving
chicken, ribs, and pulled pork to festival
attendees.
Olde Englewood Village on West Dearborn
Street draws people to festivals all year
long, and this year's Winter Fine Arts Festival
promises to be the best ever. Over 100 artists
will participate, displaying and selling
original works in many different mediums.
Exhibitors compete for cash prizes and
are awarded ribbons in seven categories:
painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography,
glass, mixed media and pottery/ceramics.
To be eligible for awards artists are required
to exhibit during the entire festival. New

collection of affordable pottery gift items,
and Jim Roberts will be offering his Reel
Dreams Fish Prints for sale. Roberts brings
the natural beauty of the sea to life with
images of"Gyotaku" fish paintings, a
technique created by Japanese anglers as far
back as 1862. He'll also be selling note cards
with turtle, tropical fish, and deep-water
fish designs. St. Louis native Alan Traynor,
a former stage manager at Walt Disney
Company, paints wooden eggs, earning
him the title of "The Egg Man." He'll be

all colors and designs. To view a sample of
his work go to eggmanart.com.
The Winter Fine Arts Festival will be held
on Dearborn Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on

The Punta Gorda

Garden Club's 20th

annual Holly Days

Home Tour


By GORDON BOWER
S II I'' 1' 1 I


If it's the first weekend of December, the
traditional kickoff for the holidays around
here, you can count on the ladies of the
Punta Gorda Garden Club to stage an event
that draws people from all over Southwest
Florida. Their popular Holly Days Home Tour
has been a signature event on a crowded
holiday calendar for 20 years and provides
the club with money it puts to very good
use in the community.
This year's 20th tour, titled A Tropical
Holiday to Remember, is Dec. 6 and 7, and
members are hoping to match or exceed
last year's record numbers. The reason
for the popularity is simple. Tourgoers
get a rare opportunity to see the inside
of a Historic District home and a look at
how local plant materials, such as palm
tree parts can be used to decorate for the
holidays.
"Last year was a huge year for us; we
had way over a thousand people," tour vice
chair Carol Moore said. "We had to reprint


the tickets twice. We took in $1,900. It was
amazing."
The growing attendance at the home
tour has prompted a change in hours this
year. Moore said, "We decided to change
the hours to start an hour earlier
(11 a.m.). Why not; the houses are ready."
The price of the tour is a worthwhile
investment for anyone looking for holiday
decorating ideas, especially ladies who
may want to try something different.
The centerpiece of each home is always
a beautifully decorated Christmas tree,
and rooms and porches are filled with
decorating touches you've never thought
of made from materials you might find in
your own home landscape. Many attendees
bring a camera and a notebook to capture
their favorite ideas.
The four homes on this year's tour
are a good mix. They range from a true
1910-vintage Florida Cracker cottage to a
new Cracker-style home built in 2012 to
exacting historical standards.
One home was built during the boom
construction of the 1920s on a lot town
founder Isaac Trabue sold to a friend. The
home on McGregor Street received no
damage from Hurricane Charley, an event
called a miracle when President Bush
visited Punta Gorda after the storm.
The ticket you purchase is actually a
pamphlet that will fill you in on the houses'
histories and the current owners. Buy one
and enjoy history and beautiful decorations
while contributing to a good cause, the
perfect way to kick off the holiday season.
The club traditionally uses the proceeds to
fund four college scholarships to local high
school students.

respectful nod to the past.
"The enthu-
siasm shown by


young and old
when they see
these cars and
bikes on display
is exciting," he
said. "The show
is my way of
bringing back a
little history and
nostalgia of the

This show consists of everything motor-

siasts and collectors alike. Patrons can relive
the glory days with Fords, Harley Davidson
Knuckleheads, Chevys, Corvettes, Indian

the granddaughter of the famed Vic Edelbrock
Sr.,who raced across the dry lakes of southern
California in his 1932 Ford Roadster, setting a
speed record of 121 mph right before WWII.
Edelbrock started racing on water skis in
the sport of speed skiing where races typically
ranged in length from 50 to 75 miles in the
lakes and oceans of Southern California. From
speed skiing, Edelbrock's interests moved to
offshore boat racing and finally road racing.

Another pair of
car lovers joining
the show is Amy
and"Spanky"
Assiter. The


Assiters are celebrity stars from the "Barrett-

been in the auctioning business since he was
a child, and for the last 16 years, has served
as the lead auctioneer at "Barrett-Jackson

Shelby Cobra 427 "Super Snake"went for
$5.5 million. Amy Assiter has made a name
for herself in the business, too, by calling out
chants for "Barrett-Jackson" She has also
earned the titles of Oklahoma State Auction-

Program Coordinator Wendy Aldridge is
busy preparing for this Saturday's free holiday
arts and craft show at the Englewood sports
complex. "Lastyearwe set up 50 tables, and
over 60 craftspeople showed up. We can accom-
modate that and many more without any
problem;' explained Aldridge," and customers
really enjoy shopping in our comfortable,
air-conditioned 11,000 square foot gymna-
sium." Artists and craftspeople will be offering a
wide array of items that include woodcarvings,
wine bottle creations, hand designed greeting
cards, photographs, bike bells, pineapple/
sea grass baskets, decoupage paper jewelry,
and bamboo crafts. Families are encouraged
to bring their children along, too, as a kid's
craft zone will be set up in a side room where
parents and tiny tots may assemble simple,
holiday crafts. Materials will be supplied at no
charge, but there will be no actual instruction.
Miss Sharon's Dawg House, a concession trailer,
will be parked outside at the complex entrance
so hungry customers may enjoy hot dogs, chips,
cold drinks, coffee and doughnuts before or
after the show. With over 136 acres, and dozens
of outdoor amenities, The Englewood Sports
Complex is a beautiful scenic area to visit at
any time of the year, and parking is never a
problem.
Aldridge and her staff expect a "good
mix" of vendors this year. George Newman, a
skilled silversmith, will be selling glass jewelry
wrapped in sterling silver wire and necklace/
earring sets made from sharks' teeth and


trimmed with silver, a process he developed to
make his work unique.
Carolyn Troboski, a retired school admin-
istrator and her architect daughter, are a
mother-daughter team. Carolyn features
fiber/textile and fabric wall art and quilted
handbags, while her daughter creates jewelry
using recycled parts from DVR players, printer
rollers, and tomato cans. She offers 5 inch crab
and scorpion coffee table "critters" made from
wire.
Katrina Meyer, owner of Elegance in Wire
Jewelry, has won many awards for her classic
designs using 14k gold-filled wire and beads,
all done by hand using just a few simple hand
tools. HerArrow Bracelet was featured in an
international magazine.
Shirley Hornagold has reserved two tables for
this show. Her collection of soft velourfingertip
towels, double dish towels and hand towel sets
make beautiful and affordable gifts forany
occasion. Buyers can choose from 100 adorable
patterns and machine embroidered designs
that include reindeer with Santa and Mr. and
Mrs. Claus at the beach.
Nature and wildlife photographer, Lynn
Sarles, is offering a calendarand framed and
matted scenes of local wildlife including alliga-
tors, bald eagles and herons. The Englewood
Sports Complex is located at 1300 S. River Rd.,
in Englewood. The holiday arts and craft show
takes place from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday,
Dec. 7. For more information go to www.scgov.
net/ParksandRecreation or call Wendy Aldridge
directly at 941-861-1980. Future shows are

'A Christmas Cactus'


where mystery


and romance


converge


By Chris Kourapis
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Those who love mystery, romance and a
huge dose of comedy will be thrilled with "A
Christmas Cactus" at the Lemon Bay Play-
house. It's a "Dickens" of a play, and no doubt
everyone will get the message that this
play is as off-beat as it gets.
For one thing, "A Christmas Cactus" by
Eliot Byerrum is really by Ellen Byerrum, an
attractive redhead, not unlike her main char-
acter, Cactus O'Riley. Why she chose to write
using a man's name remains a mystery, but
it really doesn't matter. The play, although
not well-known, will keep audiences on their
toes, as almost every line contains a double
entendre.
Bob LaSalle, who is both directing and
acting in "Christmas Cactus;' is up to the
challenge. "This is a first for me;' said LaSalle,
"and if I didn't have such a professional cast,
it would be impossible to both direct and act
at the same time. Playing the part of Ramon
Ramirez, an illegal immigrant, seemed
natural for me, as I often portray characters
with foreign accents' LaSalle acted as Victor
Velasco in "Barefoot in the Park" and as,
Ivan, in "Drinking Alone'." He's currently the
president of the Lemon Bay Playhouse.
Bill and Kim Fisackerly, husband and wife
in real life, are perfectly cast. Bill, as Stuart
Windsor, is a deputy district attorney and
Cactus' love interest from years ago. Bill
acted as Sky Masterson in "Guys and Dolls"
in north Florida and as The Gentleman Caller


in "The Glass Menagerie" at Lemon Bay
Playhouse. He's also a full-time pastor at Gulf
Cove Methodist Church in Port Charlotte. Kim,
with her hair dyed bright red for this part,
portrays the very smart but not conceited
private investigator, Cactus O'Riley, who
wants to make the world a better place. Kim
works at Weight Watchers and is a Contem-
porary Worship Leader at Gulf Cove when not
acting at Lemon Bay Playhouse or with The
Charlotte Players. She loves sharing the stage
with Bill, and played Laura Wingfield in "The
Glass Menagerie'."
Lee Lawler, as Adelaide Booker, is the
protective mother of Fred, Cactus' assistant,
who believes she's attending a murder
mystery party. Lawler, who has acted since
college, loves performing at Lemon Bay Play-
house where she's appeared in many plays
including "Post Mortem;' "Enchanted April;'
"Night Watch" and "Angel Street'."
Rick Moore, who plays Fred, a wanna-be
detective, was very funny as Teddy in
"Arsenic and Old Lace" and as Eddie in "Born
Yesterday'." He's a retired paramedic who has
acted in many productions in Leesburg and
Clermont.
Nick Nichols was David 0. Selznick in "Don't
Cry For Me Margaret Mitchell;' and he's
portrayed a host of cop roles at the Venice
Theater and LBPH. He's fugitive Neville
Smedley in "Cactus'

By KIM COOL
I i i i i I i'ii ,

Thousands are expected to gather

Saturday evening for the 25th annual
Christmas Boat Parade.
Possibly the biggest annual event in the
city, the boat parade had been viewed by
as many as 60,000 in past years, chairman
John Osmulski said.
Chairs and blankets marking choice
viewing spots are already placed along the
Intracoastal from the Albee Road Bridge to
the parade's terminus or turnaround point,
the Venice Circus Bridge at the south end of
the island part of the city.
The highly decorated boats depart from
the Albee Road bridge at 6 p.m. Saturday
evening. They head south toward Snake

ROAD TRIPGO


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDrrITOR
Salvador Dali would appreciate his
museum in St. Petersburg, especially the
undulating ribbon of glass window that
seems inspired by Buckminster Fuller's
geodesic domes of the'60s.
Or perhaps it was inspired by some of
the undulating designs by Dali himself-
those slithering clock faces perhaps.
Located on the waterfront in down-
town St. Petersburg, the museum itself
is as much a work of art as any of its
contents. While Fuller's original domes
were comprised of hundreds of triangles
that were generally equal in size, the
Dali's three-dimensional ribbon of glass
is composed of 1,062 unequal triangular
glass panels. In preconstruction visits to
the museum, I learned from the architect,
Yann Weymouth of HOK architectural firm
that, with the exception of its mate, no
two sides of any one of the triangular
shapes is the equal of any other. Whether
viewed from inside or outside, the glass
portion of the museum is worth a visit on
its own. So is the spiral staircase that rises
toward the peak of the glass dome with no
visible lateral supports.
Outside the glass is a garden terrace.
Within is the museum shop and snack
bar. Above are offices, exhibit space
and a storage area designed to protect
the collection from even a category five


hurricane.
When the collection was housed in the
old Dali museum (also in St. Petersburg)
the larger works had to be physically
removed from the museum and trucked to
a safe site some distance away no easy
task. Now the large works are placed on
the elevator and taken up to a storm-safe
area that is flood proof, fireproof, wind-
proof and more.
Fortunately even in Florida, that does
not happen too often. On all other days,
visitors can see America's largest collection
of works by Salvador Dali. Beachwood,
Ohio residents Reynolds and Eleanor Morse
began collecting Dali in the early'40s after
seeing the artist's work displayed at the
Cleveland Museum of Art. The collection
began with a wedding present to them-
selves. Eventually they became friends of
the artist and founded a private museum
of his work in Beachwood, Ohio where they
lived before giving the collection to St.
Petersburg. Today the collection comprises
about 100 oil paintings, more than
100 watercolors and drawings (including
realistic botanical drawings), more than
1,000 graphics, photos, sculptures and
other objects.
Opening Jan. 18 will be "Warhol: Art,
Fame, Mortality," an exhibit of more than
100 works by Andy Warhol (on loan from
the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh) who
was somewhat of a kindred spirit to Dali.
The new museum is at 1 Dali Blvd., St.

SUN CORRESPONDENT

Back by popular demand, The Reflec-
tions, one of America's best vocal harmony
groups, will celebrate a doo-wop Christmas
on Friday, Dec. 13 at the Cultural Center of
Charlotte County Theater, 2280 Aaron St.,
Port Charlotte. Reserved seating tickets are
$18 per person. Show starts at 7 p.m. and
doors will open at
6 p.m. Order tickets at www.TheCultural
Center.com/tickets, or call 941-625-4175,
ext. 221. Tickets are also available at the
Cultural Center's Information Desk and
Theater Box Office.
A full cash bar will be available in the
theater lobby. The group is offering a meet
and greet, merchandise and autographs
following the show.
Enjoy some of your favorite holiday classics
and songs of yesteryear, including the group's
smash hit, "Just Like Romeo and Juliet'that
was number one on the music charts in 1964.
The song sold 4 1/ million records in the U.S.
and several million more overseas. The group
performs songs by artists that they idolized as
kids such as the Drifters, Flamingos, Coasters,
Dion and the Belmonts, Platters, Tokens,
Spaniels and more.
According to promoter Cord Coslor, owner
of Celebrity Direct Entertainment, "The
group, which still features some original
members, is better than ever.":'
The Reflections toured with the Dick
Clark Caravan of Stars in the'60s, and
appeared on Clark's popular TV program,
American Bandstand.
According to the group's website,"The


Reflections achieved success purely on the
strength of their well-crafted harmonies
and cool professionalism... The Reflections
are still heralded as one of the finest vocal
groups of the'60s pop and doo-wop music
era ...The Reflections name is proudly
displayed on the wall of the Cleveland Rock
'n'Roll Hall of Fame.:'
Why do The Reflections still like to sing?
According to Gary Banovetz,"We sing for
the love of the doo-wop music that we
grew up with in the mid '50s. We would
sing wherever we could find an echo a
high school hallway, a street corner where
we hung out, a drive-in restaurant to catch
the attention of all the girls. Today, it's the
thrill of performing in theaters throughout
the country.":'
In addition to baritone singer, Banovetz,
vocalists are Tony Micale, lead tenor; John
Dean, bass; Joey Finazzo, first tenor, who
resides in Michigan, and Sal Prado, lead
tenorwho lives right here in Port Charlotte.
"We're pleased to be back at the Cultural
Center. We love to watch the audiences'
faces light up when they hear songs that
they grew up with and loved from a gone,
but not forgotten, era," Banovetz said.
"We all have grandkids now, and in
the dressing rooms of the theaters, we're
nicknamed the 'Medicare Boys' because we
compare our medications with other artists
in the shows.:'
Currently, the group travels to various
venues from California to New York, and
recently performed at a doo-wop review in
Las Vegas.

schedule, go to www.reflections-music.

Elderly can face prolonged

delirium post-surgery


DEAR DR. ROACH: One
week ago, my 99-year-old
dad tripped over a metal
strip that connects carpet
to tile in a brightly lit
concession area at a local
movie theater and broke
his left hip. Surgery was
performed the next day,
and he has been suffering
the side effects ever since.
Hospital personnel told
me he would need rehab
after the fact, but no one
mentioned the effects of
anesthesia on the very
elderly. He had throat
stretching done twice in
the past five years and
came out of that anesthe-
sia the very same person
who went under, so I was
quite unprepared for his
current state.
He is suffering from
delirium, and has not
eaten since before he fell,
as he refuses to swallow
anything. He is on an IV
started a few days ago.
As an only child, I
am tasked with finding
the appropriate rehab/
nursing facility for when
he is released. I have tried
word-of-mouth and the
Medicare site and have
visited several locations.
How do I choose the one
that is right for him? He
was very independent
previously, even drove his
car to errands and lived
at an independent-living
retirement home. I am
heartsick over this entire
situation and additionally
stressed to make the right
decision. L.D.H.
ANSWER: This is indeed
a difficult situation, and
your father is lucky to have
a concerned child to help
him.
First of all, despite
the broken hip and the
complication of delirium,
your father has a good
chance of getting back
to his function, before
breaking his hip. But both
delirium and a fractured
hip are serious. Delirium
is common in the elderly
during hospitalizations,
and it can be devastating.
People with post-surgery
delirium can return to
normal functioning, but it
can take months. Recovery
from physical injury, such
as the hip fracture, is much
slower during delirium.
There are some resourc-
es to help you find out
more about rehab/nursing
facilities. You already have
looked at www.medicare.
gov, and searched for
Nursing Home Compare.
This gives ratings based
on the Medicare database.
However, since what
makes a nursing home isn't
the bricks and mortar, but
the people who work there,


Dr. Roach

talking to the staff, as
well as current or former
patients, can give you
more information.
The booklet on
Alzheimer's disease gives
a detailed presentation
of this common illness.
Readers can obtain a copy
by writing: Dr. Roach
- No. 903, Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-6475.
Enclose a check or money
order (no cash) for $4.75
U.S./$6 Can. with the
recipient's printed name
and address. Please allow
four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
have two grandchildren
who spike fevers and get
sick a lot. How valuable are
natural wellness formulas
to build up their system
and get them stronger?
Their doctor has told them
it will not help, but he isn't
giving them anything to
help their immune system
get stronger. Any sugges-
tions? K.L.
ANSWER: The immune
system gets stronger as
kids age. The key to a
healthy immune system
remains a good diet, good
exercise and sleep, and
avoiding too much stress.
Good hand hygiene is
necessary for reducing
exposure to bacteria and
viruses. I am skeptical of
the ability for supplements
to improve the immune
system.
That being said, there
are vitamins and trace
minerals that are essential
for the immune system
to function at peak
level. Most of us can get
adequate amounts from
a healthy diet. The supple-
ments sold to "boost the
immune system" generally
are multivitamins with
some additional unproven
ingredients.
Dr Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column when-
ever possible. Readers
may email questions to
ToYourGoodHealth@med.

order form of available

Answer: The novice mountain climber needed to -
LEARN THE ROPES
What are butter-flavored granules?


Dear Heloise: A few years
ago, my mother gave me
a book of recipes from her
church. Several of the reci-
pes call for butter-flavored
granules. What are they,
and where can I find them?
- L. King in California
Butter-flavored granules
are a powdered form of
butter that is fat-free,
gluten-free and good for
those watching calories.
The main ingredients
are natural butter flavor
(processed into a dry form),
maltodextrin (a natural
carbohydrate that comes
from corn) and salt.
You can find them in
most grocery stores in
the baking or spice aisle.
Keep the top sealed tightly,
and once opened, store in
the refrigerator. They are
good to keep on hand, as
they can be used for many
foods. Heloise
ES.: I love them! I some-
times mix some with non-
fat sour cream or yogurt to
top a baked potato. Or I use
them on steamed veggies,
in brown rice with veggies
and on hot oatmeal, among
a few other things.

Storing ketchup
Dear Readers: Did
you know that ketchup
has a high acid level and
so it doesn't need to be
refrigerated? Depending
on where you keep it and
the temperature, though,
its stability and quality
can be affected.
So, what do you do? You
can store ketchup in the
pantry, but manufactur-
ers recommend that you


Hints from Heloise

refrigerate it for the best
flavor and quality. The
same with mustard: You
don't have to refrigerate
it, but it is recommended.
- Heloise

Eating out
Dear Heloise: A year
ago, I decided to really
take care of myself.
Healthier food choices are
now a part of my life. A lot
of my meals are eaten in
restaurants. Here are some
tips I use when eating out:
Sauces and gravies "on
the side" or not at all.
Salad dressing on the
side.
Order food that is
broiled, steamed or roast-
ed. Anything fried is full of
fat grams and calories.
Red sauce instead of
white (usually cream!) for
pasta.
Corn tortillas instead
of flour, and whole black
beans instead of refried.
Steamed rice instead
of fried.
With these simple
changes, I still get to enjoy
eating out with friends and
family and know that I'm
eating as healthy as I can.

Woman in unhappy relationship MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley

should cut her losses and go VA


DEAR ABBY: I have
been with my fiance since
2006. We expected to be
married in 2008, but my
grandmother died a month
before my wedding, and
then he was arrested be-
cause of charges stemming
from a sexual relationship
he'd had with a 17-year-old
girl he had been counseling.
Since then, we have had
a daughter, but through it
all there has been cheating,
drugs, jail, no job, and
constant excuses about why
our sex life no longer exists.
We have also had physical
altercations, which he was
arrested for.
I am no longer happy
with this relationship. The
only reason I stay is because
of our children. I'm only 33
and don't want to live my
life in misery anymore, but
I will sacrifice my happi-
ness for my children. I am
confused and don't know
what to do. I'm just going
through the motions in life.
I work full time, coach my
son's soccer team and am
living with MS.
He does help somewhat,
but it would be better if he
would get a job. My mother
watches my kids while I am
working and after they get
out of school. He claims
because he doesn't have a
driver's license he can't get
a job. Really? How many
people in this world don't
drive and still have a job?
Please give me some advice.
I have reached my breaking
point. -DOING THE BEST
ICAN
DEAR DOINGTHE BEST
YOU CAN: You say you are
willing to sacrifice your
happiness with this loser for
your children. Why? You are
not married to him, and he
is emotionally neglectful,
physically abusive and
contributes nothing finan-
dcially. Admit to yourself that
the "romance" has been a
mistake, and as soon as it's
safe, get away from him. If
he ever finds a job, the state
will help you collect child
support, but if he doesn't,
you'll have one less mouth
to feed.
DEAR ABBY: My mom
insists on including my
ex-husband and his wife
at our family gatherings.
I have told her repeatedly
that it makes me very


DearAbby

uncomfortable, but she
even included them in the
gift exchange last Christmas.
What should I do? Not go?
My sister has already laid
a guilt trip on me. Must
I go and have Christmas
with my ex like we're
one big happy family? (If
we had been happy, we
would not have gotten
divorced.) What are your
thoughts on this? LIVING
IN DYSFUNCTION
JUNCTION
DEAR LIVING: If you and
your ex were married for
a long time, I can see why
your mother might consid-
er him still part of the family
and want to include him.
However, out of consider-
ation for your feelings, it
should be on a limited basis
-not every holiday. (Could
she be trying to punish you
because she blames you for
the divorce?)
Because it would make
you uncomfortable and
your mother knows it, make
plans to do something you
would enjoy. And please,
don't feel guilty if you do
- regardless of what your
sister says.
DEAR ABBY: What do
you say to your only son
who can't even call to tell
you he is getting married?
He posted it on Facebook,
and I was notified via a text
from my sister.
Our relationship isn't
the issue. He just doesn't
seem to be able to use his
phone for TALKING. Your
thoughts? OUTSIDE THE
LOOP IN OREGON
DEAR OUTSIDE THE
LOOP: Because your son
seems oblivious to the
fact that news of this kind
should be conveyed to the
immediate family personal-
ly rather than in a "bulle-
tin," EXPLAIN to him how it

owes you an apology.


"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would
not have you ignorant."- 1 Corinthians 12:1
The Lord never intended for His children to be
denied the gifts that He provided for them, nor for one
generation of people to be preferred above another:
God is no respecter of persons. All things are yours.

Opening lead: Queen of
Slam bidding is the last frontier for
many players. It can be very difficult
to determine exactly when there are
12 tricks available for your side, and
excellent hand evaluation is often
required. We occasionally see an


auction that should result in prizes for
both partners. Sometimes that's a
booby prize, but grand awards for the
North-South pair today.
South jump-shifted at his second
turn to show game-forcing values,
then re-bid his hearts. North bid three
no trump in desperation and South
removed it to four hearts, feeling like
he had done an excellent job of
describing his hand a powerful
hand with primary hearts, secondary
clubs and too distributional to play in
three no trump. Good job!
North looked at his hand at this
point in the auction and realized what
treasures he held. Two pure aces and
a queen that looked like it was made
of gold! He could hardly pass four
hearts and still sleep at night. He
raised to five hearts and South didn't
need to be asked twice.
A small child could make a slam
on this hand. The challenge was to
bid it. Kudos to North-South.

Authorities say Caleb Wagner, 27, the boyfriend of the 15-month olds mother, called 911 around 8:45 p.m. on Nov. 11, but his story of how the male infant received his wounds didnt jibe with what authorities think happened. Every time the infant was out of his mothers vision, he came up injured, according to reports. Bayite arrived and transported the infant to All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg for urgent care that evening. The infant had numerous facial injuries and head trauma and was unresponsive and had abnormal breathing, according to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce probable cause afdavit. Det. K. Frank interviewed the mother, who said she was doing her laundry earlier that morning when Wagner told her he heard a thud and found the infant had appar ently fallen off the living room couch, striking a coffee table and then the tile oor. The child had a cut to his upper lip and bruising to his nose and forehead, recalled the mother.Man arrested after infant found not breathingBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORINFANT | 5 WAGNERMORE CHARGESTwo days after the alleged incident with the infant, Caleb Wagner, 27, was involved in a road rage incident in which he allegedly pulled a handgun on a motorcyclist, according to court records. CORRECTIONThe email address for Evolve Insurance Agency was incorrect on Page 34 of the Discover Venice magazine. The correct address is steve.evolve@gmail.com. PGT Industries received a thumbs up this week from the Venice Planning Commission to proceed with building another glass laminating and tempering plant in North Venice. PGT spokesman John Mancini said the expansion will create 60 jobs, manned by 20 people in each of three shifts. Were currently growing by about 20 percent annually. Phase I of the project will meet our current needs, Mancini said. Phase I calls for 56,643 square feet of manufacturing space with 155 parking spaces. Completion is anticipated in August of 2014, according to Mancini. Phase II of the approved site plan calls for a second, 41,038-square-foot plant. Whether that will house more glass laminating, or window or door manufacturing will depend on the future market. Theres plenty of room available on the 12-acre parcel, which is currently a vacant lot. PGT has already begun hir ing due to extensive training that will be required, Mancini said. The expansion will help streamline inventory and delivery systems, and provide greater control over glass quality and ultimately costs. It will also ll a hole in production. The company, Mancini said, has had difculty in the past meeting its need for glass and on occasion has had to buy from outside sources. This will mean we wont have to outsource for glass, Mancini said. The nished glass will be transported elsewhere within the facility to be placed into windows and doors. Mancini also assured commissioners the glass will be manufactured for internal use in their own products, and not for exportation. Concerns were raised about the trafc such an export business could produce. There are no plans to outsource glass from that facility, he said. PGT did not propose any modications to code PGT will grow yet againBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORHiring has begunPGT | 5For the 600 students and teachers, it was a struggle to t everyone inside the cafeteria, but it had to be done, because it was time to make the sandwiches, and time was of the essence. In fact, time was the only reason any of those 600 people were in the cafeteria that morning. On May 30, Pine View School, led by its Interact Club, broke the Guinness World Record for the number of sandwiches made in an hour. The 600 students made 5,721 sandwiches in 30 minutes and 24.68 seconds. They would have continued for the whole hour, said Joshua Palmer, previous Interact president and current Vanderbilt student, but they ran out of bread. Today, the record that Pine View set remains unbroken, said Palmer. The event was special because the sandwiches were donated to ve local food banks, and the surplus funds were donated to charity. This past Monday, Pine View held a ceremony to honor the accomplishment. Current Interact President Alex Hayes, a senior, presented the ofcial Guinness certicate to Pine View Principal Steven Covert. There are lots of people who are good at lots of different things, but now we know that Pine View is the best at making sandwiches, said Jeremy Kemp, who led the project last year and currently attends the University of Virginia. To engage the entire school, the Interact club emailed every teacher and asked for classes to volunteer at the event. So many classes expressed interest that Interact had to choose the rst 20 classes that volunteered. Older students made sandwiches and led the organization efforts Pine View given Guinness recordBy KATIE DUNN-RANKINGONDOLIER SUN CORRESPONDENTRECORD | 12 COURTESY PHOTOAlex Hayes, the current Interact club president at Pine View, and Dr. Steven Covert, the Pine View principal, hold the ocial certicate sent from Guinness that certies that Pine View broke the world record. The certicate is now displayed in Pine Views front oce. Thousand of residents, visitors and tourists lined downtown Venice streets Saturday for the annual evening holiday parade.

According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: Robert L. Burgess, 32, deemed a prolic offender by SCSO, had been living in a tent with the victim for about a week. On Thanksgiving day, he was trying to sleep when she asked him what time it was. Burgess allegedly became angry and grabbed her by the neck. She freed herself and ran to the road where she waved down a deputy. Burgess, 100 block of Clemson Road, Venice, was charged with domestic battery by strangulation. Bond was set at $10,000.

Swat also left a phone number, which matched his. When detectives attempted to speak to Swat in 2012, he requested to consult an attorney.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A standards, although commissioners urged the company and architects to consider increasing, or adding additional buffering, to the 25-foot setback nearest a farm with horses. Shawn Leins, with AM Engineering, said PGT is very anxious to get this building started. Of all the planned industrial parks, this is one of the nicer ones Ive worked on, Leins said. Commission chair Barry Snyder agreed. I think it looks like a good project out there, he said. PGT pioneered the U.S. impact-resistant window and door industry and today is the nations leading manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, according to company ofcials. The company employs more than 1,000 at its manufacturing facility located in the Triple Diamond Commerce Park off Knights Trail Road.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comPGTFROM PAGE 1 The infant allegedly took a nap from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. According to Wagner, he put two other children to bed, then brought the victim into the bedroom to change his diaper. When he picked the infant up he went limp, Wagner said. He shook the victims arms to waken him but did not receive a response. Wagner said he tried to call the mother but said she did not answer her cellphone, so he went next door to his friends residence. The friend came to the childs aid and told Wagner to call 911. The friend said when he found the child in his crib, he was stiff, his eyes had rolled back in his head, and he had stopped breathing. The friend forced open the childs mouth, at which time the victim began breathing again. When the detective arrived at the hospital, the infant was already in emer gency surgery having a large brain bleed removed. The detective was told the bruising to the face and head area was too severe for just a fall. The infant also exhibited broken blood vessels that caused blood spots throughout both ears. He was having seizure-like symptoms while in ight to All Childrens Hospital. Two days later, Dr. Sally Smith, of the Pinellas County Child Protection Team, examined the victim. She concluded the victims injuries, which included a spinal fracture, are the result of physical abuse. She further said the injuries are consistent with high force impact on a relatively soft surface, such as being thrown onto a couch or bed with force. These injuries absolutely are not consistent with the statement of him falling off the couch, Smith told detectives. Bruising of both ears was observed. The retinal hemorrhaging in the victims left eye would have also been the result of a high force impact, she said. Smith indicated the onset of unconsciousness would have occurred immediately at the time of injury not eight to 10 hours earlier in the day when the victim may or may not have fallen off the couch. Wagner, of the 700 block of Groveland Ave., Venice, was arrested Nov. 26 and charged with aggravated child abuse. He remains in jail on $250,000 bond. Wagner was additionally charged with one count of child neglect and three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in an unrelated incident on Nov. 13, according to court records. It was a road rage incident in which Wagner allegedly pulled out a handgun on a motorcyclist. He was out on $100,000 bond in connection that incident. Drew Winchester also contributed to this report.INFANTFROM PAGE 1 Nearly four years ago, a Venice police ofcer responding to a domestic violence call arrested a woman for interfering with an investigation after she refused to open her apartment door. The woman sued in federal court, claiming unreasonable home entry and excessive force, among other things. Yesterday (Dec. 3) the case went to mediation. By law, the parties arent allowed to discuss the outcome pending formal acceptance if they come to a monetary settlement. If not, the case heads to a jury trial. Federal Judge Mary Sciven, Middle District Court of Florida, ruled in September against the citys motion for summary judgment, which would have essentially dismissed the case. The incident took place Jan. 4, 2010, when Venice Police Ofcer Paul Freeman was called to investigate a disturbance at a residence in the 200 block of Avenue des Parques. According to a police report, Mary Walters, 49, and a man had been drinking in her apartment when they got into an argument. She kicked him out. He insisted he forgot his keys inside. She said she didnt have them. They were never found. The man complained to the apartment complex manager, who called the police. Walters refused to open the door, yelling expletives at the ofcer who responded, and telling him to get a search warrant. Police records state Freeman, 45, a 14-year veteran with the department, was concerned over Walters extreme state of intoxication and wanted to observe her to ensure she was not in any danger. Not being able to see her I wasnt able to come to a full conclusion, but it had me thinking possibly a Marchman Act. But my main goal was to investigate the criminal aspect of a disturbance, Freeman later testied, according to court lings. The Marchman Act permits the involuntary commitment for evaluation of a person who is under the inuence of alcohol or drugs and who poses a threat to himself or herself or another person. Ofcer Freeman secured a key to the apartment from the manager. After he opened the door, the defendant raised both hands in a ghting position towards me, and then began yelling at me, Freeman said in the probable cause afdavit for the arrest. I pushed the defendant backwards onto a bed and placed her into custody for her protection. She was transported to the North County jail. Freeman said he was acting on information from the male companion that both had been drinking all day. When he asked her how much she had to drink, she refused to answer. He grabbed her wrists because she was kicking and swinging. Then he handcuffed her. She responded by telling the ofcer she had some cop friends and would get even with him. The defendant later made statements like, Id rather be dead than in jail, and use your gun and shoot me in the head, according to the afdavit. On Jan. 20, 2010, the state attorneys ofce for the 12th Judicial Circuit issued a memo declining to prosecute the case, calling it a warrantless non-emergency arrest of a suspect in his or her own home (that) is presumptively unlawful. The memo further stated, in this case, there was no reasonable basis to believe that the (plaintiff) was in a life-threatening emergency or in need of rst aid. The suit by Walters against the ofcer and the city of Venice seeks more than $100,000 for each of four counts: unreasonable home entry, unreasonable search, excessive force and unconstitutional city practices. The latter count refers to what Walters attorney, Andrea Mogensen, called a failure to train and retrain ofcers in Fourth Amendment rights, including the warrantless entry of a private residence and need for a search warrant or exigent circumstances before entering a private residence.

BUSINESS MATTERSCONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 6A WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4, 2013 Little more than 12 months ago, new owners acquired the liquor store serving islanders for more than 30 years. Carrying out their intentions to make it an interesting place to shop, they have transformed it into a unique destination. In January, the transformation will be completed and owners Bill and Beth Ahern will reveal the new name with new signage. Retiring the Brindleys Liquors name, this iconic store will become Island Times Spirits & Gourmet Market, 421 South Tamiami Trail, across from Venice Regional Medical Center. Most stores do not have the additional facilities we have specially introduced for all our regular and new customers, Ahern said. Not just for the holidays, but every day they can sample wines, spirits and beers at their own leisure. Island Times is a unique destination. Customers can socialize in the deli full of gourmet food items and wander among more than 8,000 different items, including 2,000 wines, 4,000 spirits and 800 beers, many with detailed background, history and blends. Capturing the essence of the store as customers walk in is the objective for the name change. The Aherns believe it incor porates the island into the business and have already added a beachy feel and ambiance with lots of tropical dcor by signs, gifts, accessories and spirits. Attention-attracting neon signs of palm trees and parrots adorn the windows. Entering the store, shoppers will feel the atmosphere beaming at them from the island-style ceiling mural painted by a local artist. Celebrations for the re-branding to Island Times Spirits & Gourmet Market will be in late January. On the grand reopening weekend, the Aherns will have lots of giveaways with vendors pitching in free T-shirts, hats and more. There will be prize giveaways, free samples of products, tastings of wine, beer, liquor and more all weekend. According to Ahern, it is going to be one big party for all guests. In the expanded deli, connoisseurs will nd the cheese section vastly expanded. Additionally, the owners have brought in new meats and spreads, including Usingers Sausage of Milwaukee, a favorite with locals and snowbirds. Seating 40 people, the store will serve sandwiches and subs made to order and ready-made dishes not only for lunchtime but all day between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Customers are encouraged while enjoying a platter of cheese or sandwich to combine it with sampling wines using a tasting card. Those preferring cold beers may welcome the opportunity to get out of the Florida sun into the constant 32 degrees in the Beer Cave. Those looking for something different should check out the craft spirits of vodka, rum and whiskey from the smaller batch distillers. Those entering the store can get a tasting card and sample the wine before they buy it. The Aherns encourage socializing, particularly late every Thursday afternoon with deli happy hour. Further, the tasting machine prices are halved for wines and liquors. The owners have already introduced a charitable aspect to customers when they opened the store, to support local nonprots and fundraising organizations in an event called a Tasting Extravaganza. That is a big party with more than 100 people enjoying special prices on wines, beers, spirits and cheese spreads. Already this year at those events more than $8,000 has been raised, and one event had a record 153 attendees. Next year, parties for the Venice Area Womens League, Womens Sertoma, Habitat for Humanity, Senior Friendship Center and the Loveland Center will be held at Island Times.Brindleys new features, look lead to new nameBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONBill and Beth Ahern, owners of Brindleys Liquors, will in January celebrate the rebranding of the iconic island store to Island Times Spirits & Gourmet Market.

For an estimated 22 years or more at the location across from the Tandem Center, residents and visitors had the opportunity to purchase quality products at the meat market until it closed around a year ago. Jim and Roseanne Dooley, owners of Edens Salon and Spa, have acquired the adjoining island meat market. Renaming it Papas Meat Market, 324 Tamiami Trail South, it is next to the Produce Market. I choose Papa because it is what my grandchildren call me and it also represents the heavenly father, Dooley said. I am sure it will become a name to remember and a place to shop for all your meat and sh. Since acquiring the property, he has spent several weeks completely upgrading it, installing new equipment, display refrigerators and much more. It follows similar contracting work he undertook in completely upgrading the premises for the Salon & Spa before the team moved in a few months ago. To manage the business with him, Dooley has hired Chef Janet Spender, who has 30 years experience as a French chef and meat cutter. It is a complete meat market and full Metro-Line deli with prepared food and takeout service. A meat market is fun because it is like Christmas every day, Spender said. We wrap up a package for every one; they take it home and are really happy with it. Papas will specialize in certied Angus beef, steak cuts including ribeye and porterhouse, holiday roasts, fresh hams, lamb, pork and chicken. In the seafood section, they have Norwegian salmon, scallops from Maine and other fresh sh. Customers can pur chase food prepared on the premises to take home and cook; in addition, there is a full line of homemade cooked foods like beef stew, meatloaf and shepherds pie. The Metro Deli is stocked with all natural meats, specialty salads, a desert case of tarts, cookies, croissants and more. Fresh subs, sandwiches, takeout salads, homemade soup of the day, chips and sodas are available.Papas Meat Market opens with full featuresBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST The local Rotarians, who are business people known for creating new fundraisers to benet the community, may have a special surprise next year for the community. They are planning a new Rock with Rotary concert. The show will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19, at the Venice Municipal Airport Festival Grounds. To get everyone rocking, they are presenting a local favorite, The Gas House Gorillas, a local rock band whose popularity is growing fast. Whether you are 15, 50 or even 100 years old, this band is going to get you jumping, stomping and rocking to their modern rock. Renee Adorna, vocalist, agent and spokesperson for the band, said they have a great following for their regular appearances, the Sexy Santa Parties and PreNew Years Eve Bash all at local clubs in Venice, Port Charlotte and Sarasota. For the Rotarians, the Gas House Gorillas in concert will be a show for all ages. This concert is popular with our fans because they always ask me when their kids can nally come see a show that is not in a bar, Adorna said. When I mean kids, Im talking high school age. Guaranteeing a party, this ve-piece band has Adorna and her husband, Tommy Adorna, from New Jersey, drummer/vocals; Floridian Michael Cochran, lead singer/guitar/ keyboards; Mike Opeka, lead guitar/vocals; and Sarasotan Cuinn Grifn, bass guitar/keyboards/ background vocals. Formed more than 13 years ago, they added three new members a year ago and changed their name to Gas House Gorillas Evolved. Known for putting their twist on some older tunes with great music, the band will be on stage from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Adding to the enjoy ment on this fun-lled opening are the Rotary chefs who are cooking superb hamburgers, hot dogs and Italian sausages while colleagues at the bar serve beer, wine, soft drinks, hard cider and other refreshments. Ensuring it will be the best night ever with party ing, stomping and Rocking with Rotary, the Gas House Gorillas provide a great light show with costume changes every set on a brilliant sound stage. The awesome food cooked outside barbecue-style by the Rotary chefs will thrill your taste buds. A drink selection to suit all palates will make this a special evening by kick-starting the two-day, 22nd annual Rotary Fine Art & Crafts Festival. Admission is $10 in advance and $15 at the gate with free parking. Tickets are available online at www.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A A Punta Gorda-based community bank that has already established a tempo rary loan ofce is planning to open its fourth branch ofce, in Venice, in early 2014. Seasoned banker Rodney Girdwood is spearheading the establishing of a Calusa National Bank ofce, and negotiations are currently underway to identify a suitable property within the city limits. We are denitely opening a new branch in the rst quarter, Girdwood said. With the Florida Shores Bank sell-out, we will be one of only two community banks in Venice. I have already set up my local board of directors making decisions here for local people. As vice president for commercial lending, he has opened a Loan Production Ofce for Calusa National Bank at 555 E. Venice Ave., Suite B on the corner with Grove Avenue near the re station. With 33 years of banking experience ranging from consumer and residential loans to commercial loans, he is helping Calusa National Bank expand its locations into Venice. Locally owned and oper ated, the bank is nationally chartered community and was founded 2007. The head ofces are in Punta Gorda and the bank has ofces in North Port and Murdock serving business, professional and residential communities of Charlotte and Sarasota counties. Girdwood recently joined the Calusa National Bank team following a brief period with CI Bank of Tampa. Growing up in Tecumseh, Mich., he became a welder at Jeep for two years, then a lumberjack in the Upper Peninsula. Entering community banking in Monroe, Mich., in 1980, he moved to various banks. Having enjoyed being a snowbird visitor to Englewood for 16 years, he moved to Venice in 2006. He worked with SunTrust Bank, then joined Stearns Bank on Center Road when it acquired the fallen Community National Bank. Three years later, he moved to CI Bank. Currently, Girdwood is on the board for Big Brothers Big Sister of the Sun Coast and is an active member of the Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club.Calusa Bank plans expansion to VeniceBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO PROVIDEDRodney Girdwood, the vice president for commercial lending for Calusa National Bank, is spearheading the development of the bank by establishing a Venice branch oce.

OUR VIEWChristmas spirit: remembering our seniors, our kidsThey say Christmas is for kids. To a large degree, that is true. No one gets as excited opening up presents as a child. And, when that present is exactly what they asked Santa for, the enthusiasm is intensied. The image of excited children opening presents and the idea that many children in our area may not have presents to open is what spawned a number of organizations and businesses to put up angel trees each year. Those, of course, are trees located in various businesses that have cards attached with the names of children whose family cannot nancially afford presents, or children who for one reason or another, do not have a family. The cards list a number of gifts the kids have requested. Mike Levine, owner of the Home Instead Cafe franchise in Venice and South Sarasota County, believes there are seniors in our communities who are just as needy as kids. Levine is sponsoring Be a Santa to a Senior trees in Venice, Englewood and North Port. His goal is to gather enough presents to make the holiday a little happier for 400 or more seniors most of them who have no family and are alone for Christmas. Levine quietly began the charity about 10 years ago. Last year, he was able to collect gifts for about 200 seniors whose names he collects from social service caseworkers, the Salvation Army, nursing homes and other agencies. You can nd trees at Bealls Outlet stores in Venice, Englewood and North Port. We think it is a marvelous idea to embrace our seniors and make sure they are not forgotten at Christmas.Kids Without BikesThen there are the kids in our community who might be lacking one of the basic elements of virtually every childhood a bicycle. Thats where Josh LeBlanc of Venice comes in. When he was just 6 years old, he couldnt understand why every child he knew didnt have a bike. Even at the tender age of 6, he knew he needed to do something, so he started asking family members and friends for donations so he could purchase bikes for kids who didnt have one. Now 12 and a student at SKY Academy, Josh has purchased more than 140 bikes since he rst started. Each year, he receives a list from Venice Elementary School of kids who do not have bikes. He does not receive names but simply gets a list of the childs gender and helmet size. Those who wish to donate toward Joshs efforts can do so at Addingtons Florist, Waterford Golf Club, Capri Isles Golf Club, Calusa Lakes Golf Club, Mad Avenue Spa, SKY Academy and Darryls Restaurant. Joshs mother, Kim, told a particularly poignant story about Joshs efforts. We helped a single father of three last year, and he said the bikes were the only big present the kids were getting for Christmas, Kim said. He was so appreciative, and it still nearly brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. Between the work of Josh LeBlanc and Mike Levine, the areas holiday spirit is shining through for people of all ages. We are fortunate to have people of such caliber in our community. Im in favor of tradition and, yes, chairsI have lived in several major cities in the United States and can attest to the fact that where we live is paradise. Based on crime statistics alone, we have to rank pretty good in best places to live in the country. Besides the people, there are several factors that make us stand out in the category. I believe one of them continues to be our Christmas parades not just the events but the anticipation that spreads throughout the community beforehand. Personally, I think the ritual of placing chairs out in just the right spot so that family and friends can share the parade is one of the most quaint traditions I have ever seen in a community. As with every tradition, there are pros and cons that accompany the annual ritual, but lets face it its just pretty darn cool that a community can trust itself so much to do this without creating turmoil. I imagine its almost like getting the Christmas tree each year. You cant wait too long to complete the task or there will be nothing left. Coming home without a spot for the Christmas parades cant be any fun. Venice still has tradition and still wants to be a part of the time honored holiday festivities. Additionally, I have to think that displays such as this can often tip the scales in our favor when people from the cities across the land are deciding on where to retire. I doubt too many times in their life have they seen hundreds of chairs left out in the community for as long as a week and not be destroyed, stolen or used in a crime. As each year passes, it seems like we start making a bigger deal out of a tradition than there really is, so much so that elected ofcials are forced to begin regulating our holiday traditions. Clearly we have seen time and time again what can happen when government gets involved in non-governmental stuff. Do we really need to complain to city ofcials about chairs for holiday celebrations? Do we really need to risk a time honored tradition getting regulated out of existence because we have nothing more to complain about? In my mind, the ritual is one that has been respected and we the people have not gone absolutely wild. Quietly, people put out some chairs and go home feeling warm as they have no doubt the spot will be there on the day of the parade. Think about how special that really is folks. Instead of complaints next year, lets all work together and make these two Saturdays even more special than they are. Local business could do something special in front of their stores during the day, restaurants could bake holiday cookies for us all and we could get some projection screens in the park for football games. Find a reason to bring this community together and celebrate not just the holidays but the fact that each and every one of us makes this place paradise. And by all means, bring a chair. Tim Smolarick is publisher of the Venice Gondolier Sun.WHO SHOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY? WHY? CALL US AT 941-207-1111.South Venice is not substandard. South Venice is considered a substandard area because we dont have central water and sewers? I live in South Venice because we DO NOT have central water and sewer. #1. If the grid goes down, which they talked about nationally that there is a possibility; if we have an EMP attack, or if we have a solar are that knocks out the grid, Ive got a hand pump that I can put on my well and Ill have water and I can put it down my toilet. And then there are those who have to depend on the electricity to pump out the sewage because of the high water table in Venice and in surrounding areas. So you might want to reconsider. We dont have a substandard area and we dont have a sewage bill because we dont have pipes connecting from house to house. We are the highest rated area around. Why support Obamacare? All of the letters supporting Obamacare why? How? Obamacare forces Americans with any amount of money to provide healthcare for anyone without money. The only way Obamacare will work is if many people sign up for policies that they do not need or want with inated rates to provide money for the uninsured. In the process, the Obamacare will destroy the current healthcare insurance industry. Not the best, but it works. Obamacare will generate millions of new patients with no provision to train new doctors and drops compensation to doctors that will drive them out of medicine. Most primary care doctors are not driving Mercedes and living in beachfront homes. Most are still trying to pay off school debt, opening an ofce and hiring a massive staff for all the paperwork required by Obamacare. How many Americans are working part time so their employees can avoid Obamacare? How many have lost their jobs? How many have lost their healthcare policy because of Obamacare? Did someone say you can keep your policy if you like it? I dont know how many Americans can support Obamacare. Obamacare will not help anybody and will destroy the insurance industry and the healthcare industry. Then what do you have? Forget Circus Arena. Let the circus go. The circus is gone and has been gone since 1992. The circus is just up the road in Sarasota and Tampa. Why repeat it here? Venice has so much that is Venice, why not build on that? Attempts to raise money for the arena all failed miserably. That signies a lack of interest. Some people like the idea of a circus arena, but most do not. Let it go and lets move on. Obama, Obamacare bad. Im a very concerned American about this Obamacare and the person who wrote the Letem Have It bragging. Either youre grossly misinformed or ignorant. Older members of both parties should retire. They are way past due to retire so the young, fresh faces can have their say. They are trying to preserve our way of life here. Obama is such a liar. Who can trust him? How dangerous to think he can change a law passed by Congress without going to Congress to change as it was written. How many times has he done this already? I and millions of other Americans are thinking to impeach him for this. The only reason you dont like Fox News is because you know they are telling to truth. Hey, we hardworking people who are paying for our insurance and like our insurance, we should have the freedom to choose what we want. Face the truth about Obama. He cannot be trusted. He doesnt even know what goes on in his own administration. Maybe if he would stay in the Oval ofce and quit running around the country campaigning, maybe he would know more. Crazy ideas. Trickle down stupidity has replaced trickle down economics because from Washington on down, things are a asco. The idea of moving the entire Seaboard Avenue while theyre going to widen 41 what sort of nightmare are they trying to create? It makes no sense to me. I have other things to say that I would put my name on, but it doesnt seem like you print letters anymore. Where have they been? I dont know. Good luck Venice. Silly behavior. In a good socialist organization, the silly behavior we have seen with Obamacare would not have occurred. All major changes are risky. Once a decision is made, everyone would be expected to help in its success. Constructive criticism would be welcomed. No team players would be eliminated by the upper leadership. Successful American corporations follow the socialist behavior pattern. An employee who publicly says that company products are inferior for his own personal gain is no mans friend.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A Love the boat parade. I just moved to Venice and I love it. The boat parade should continue, I hope. It just seems to be a tradition they work so hard at and the people so much enjoy it. Thank you for festival. I want to thank Venice MainStreet for having the wonderful Blues and Brews Festival. It was great. I didnt know there were that many old hippies in Venice. It was wonderful. Thank you very much. Help with relief effort. You Pro-Life people, you need to give to the typhoon relief effort. I did. Six or seven children they cant afford or feed. Come on! Weve got to change. Weve got to help these people more. Not just give them food, but give them a way to take care of all those children. They shouldnt have all those children. Holiday prices. Crude oil is $93 a barrel. Oil companies just raised gasoline 18 cents this week at most stations. Theres plenty of gas supply. There is nothing going on in the Mideast. Nothing else thats going to affect our prices. Up 18 cents this week and I cant gure out why. Ooooooh...Thanksgiving. Its a holiday coming up; theyre really going to get us one way or another.

I had such a delightful time in Venice last year that I will be handling many of my holiday preparations with you again. Nothing that Santa and the elves take care of, just some of my personal shopping and a little time to indulge in the holiday spirit. Santa and I were both in town for the Holiday Parade. Its such a grand way to see so many of our friends in Venice and all the darling children. I will be checking to make sure Santa has nothing but good reports on all of you. Santa and I hope to hit the beaches before he has to return to the North Pole. We love to search for the fossilized shark teeth at Venice Beach. I was hoping to take Santa and the elves to Paw Park. Does any one one know if Paw Park will admit the reindeer? They do love a good run on the beach. Santa will return for the Holiday Lighting. Neither of us would miss that. The lighting of the trees and the children singing just ll us up with the holiday spirit. After Santa and the elves depart, I have quite a social schedule set up. My great friend Ann Thompson has invited me to ride with her in the Holiday Boat Parade. Ill be making a special wave to all my friends at the Venice Area Beautication party. These people who make Venice beautiful are in the holiday spirit all year long. They have asked me to join them on one of their Thursday morning work parties, I hope I can help to plant a tree or owering bush to Help Keep Venice Beautiful. Im also invited to attend the Venice Art Center for their Holiday Tea. I do so love a good tea. This also allows me some shopping time in their gift shop. So many lovely things made by all your local Venice artists. Speaking of tea, I will be visiting the Upper Crust and the 3 Sisters Tea Room to check out their baked goods. I pride myself on my baking and love to chat with fellow bakers. Christmas cookies are still my specialty, but I do love a good scone. I have a number of errands planned in the historic downtown Shoppes. Such a lovely area with so many friendly shopkeepers to help me nd gifts for Santa and the elves. If you see me shopping, you mustnt tell them anything about it. Its so hard to keep their gifts secret. The Venice MainStreet Downtowners have promised to point me to the best shopping and wrap my gifts afterward. I am so looking forward to it. The Street Legal folks provide free transpor tation downtown, so I can carry my purchases back to the sleigh and get more shopping in. If you need to reach me, leave word with the Venice MainStreet ofce. I check in with them daily for all the local events and the best shopping. I hope to see you all while Im in Venice. So many wonderful things to do and the friendliest people.

Lic# 14016 MM14015 While numerous studies have consistently shown that eating fruits and vegetables is good for bones, a new study involving the natural pigments found in plants (called carotenoids) may have discovered the reason why. The four-year study looked at changes in bone mineral density at two areas of the hip and lumbar spine in hundreds of men and women (average age of 75 years). Researchers found that carotenoids (including alphacarotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene, and lutein plus zeaxanthin), particularly lycopene, were associated with some level of protection against losses in bone mineral density at the hip in men and at the lumbar spine in women. These results suggest there is a protective effect exerted by carotenoids against bone loss in older adults. P.S. There are more than 600 different types of carotenoids, the red, orange, and yellow pigments that give plants such as carrots, strawberries, and peppers their color.

Wales will miss the rest of the 2013 season with an upper-body injury. Trey Burtons career as a Florida Gator came to a screeching halt on the third longest gain of his college career Saturday. Lined up at quarter back, the senior took the shotgun snap, faked a handoff to sweeping receiver Solomon Patten, and burst through the middle of the Florida State defense. Fifty yards later, Burton was dragged down from behind, his left shoulder crashing into Florida Field. He would not return, and with the Gators wrapping up a disappointing 4-8 season, there wont be a bowl game to play in, either. Obviously you dont want to go out like that, Burton told the Gainesville Sun. I felt like I let my team down a little bit. But its obviously not something I can control. I just wish I could have been there to finish it up. Despite using Burton sparingly at quar terback this season, Florida head coach Will Muschamp said Saturdays game plan revolved around the 2010 Venice High grad. We were probably going to have 3035 plays with Trey (at quarterback), Muschamp said. Some of the misdirection runs now go out of the game plan, so you gotta make adjustments and you gotta change. I hurt for Trey because hes a senior, his last game in The Swamp. So very difficult for him. Hes a great young man. It just kind of sums up whats happened this year. Very frustrating. Burton is being considered for a spot in the Senior Bowl, the top showcase event for draft-eligible college players. But he wasnt thinking about that Saturday. I obviously wanted it to go a different way, but Im extremely thankful for the four years I had here, Burton told the Sun. Ill always be proud to be a Gator.Burtons UF career ends in injurySTAFF REPORT SUN FILE PHOTOTrey Burton cuts upeld during the Gators win over Toledo in September.

SPORTS BRIEFS Venice Indians guard Dom Marino really likes his new home. The Riverview transfer scored 31 points, including the game-winning layup, as the Indians defeated the visiting Bayshore Bruins, 56-53, Nov. 26 in the New Teepee. He added 11 rebounds, nine steals and two assists to go with his strong scoring effort. He (Marino) is such a competitor, Venice Coach James Slaton said. He works so hard and just wants to get better. Venice trailed most of the game and closed the gap to two points on multiple occasions, but couldnt get over the hump. Trailing by two points with 9.8 seconds left, Dillon Marksbury found Brent Store on an inbounds pass for the game-tying layup to make the score, 49-49. After I missed that free throw, Brent came up big for us with that drive, Marino said. Slaton said, We drew up that play for Brent in the last timeout, and he made the drive and layup to send us into overtime. In overtime, the Bruins took a quick 51-49 lead as Scooter McDufe made a layup. Venice guard John Cokley hit one of two free throws to close within 51-50. Bayshore turned the ball over on their next possession and Cokley found Marino for a layup to put the Indians up, 52-51. Justin Harris tied the game at 52 for the Bruins by making one of two free throws, and Wesley Jackson also made one of two free throws to give Bayshore a 53-52 lead. Cokley missed a threepoint shot on the Indians next possession, but Marino grabbed the offensive rebound and made the put-back to give Venice a 54-53 lead they would never give up. Marino then hit two free throws to put Venice up, 56-53. Bayshore had two three-point shots by Harris and Jackson, but both rimmed out to secure the Venice victory. Anytime you win a close game, its good and helps the team develop their character, Slaton said. Its nice to win by 20 or 30, but you dont learn anything about yourself. These last two games have been close, but we pulled them out. The Indians went up quickly 11-6 to start the game before the Bruins used a 2-2-1 press to stie the Indians offense. Bayshore forced 12 rst-half turnovers and outscored Venice 31-17 to take a 37-28 lead going into halftime. I think we started to play too fast, Slaton said. We made one or two passes and tried to get a look. We also didnt play perimeter defense like we can, and Bayshore got a lot of easy looks. Venice clamped down on defense in the third quarter, allowing just two free throws by Harris. The Indians also switched their offensive strategy to allow Marino to get to the basket and create. They went man, so we went to our dribble-drive offense, Marino said. It was the best t at the time. In the fourth quarter, the Indians got to within two on a Jake McFarlane jump shot, but the Bruins used some strong offensive rebounding by Harris and McDufe to extend the lead to 48-42. Marskbury hit a three to make the score 48-45, and Marino followed with a layup to make the score 48-47 and set up Stores heroics. These two wins are great because we have a tough week coming up next week, Slaton said. We play Port Charlotte, Riverview and Island Coast, so its nice to have these two wins.Marinos 31 leads Indians to 56-53 OT victoryBy NATE COWANSUN CORRESPONDENT Dom Marino scores two of his 31 points in Venices 56-53 win over Bayshore Nov. 26.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A $$ S AV E MONEY $$ Shop the Classifieds. Weve come a long way to visit, so theres no way Rays going to back out of our golf date now just because the arthritis in his knee his acting up. At a restaurant that rst night, he can barely swivel his right leg out of the car, and when we get inside he has to struggle to get the same knee past the table leg just so he can take his seat in the booth. Dont worry, Ray says. Ill be ne. The next morning, were talking about golf again and his eyes are tearing up so much he has to wipe them. I can be standing over a ball getting ready to hit and my eyes get so watery I have to back away, he says. I get these oaters, from macular degeneration. This is getting ridiculous. Im surprised at how open my father-in-law is being with me. Ray is a tough, working-class guy, a John Wayne-style mans man, a genuine World War II hero who landed on Normandy Beach 14 days after D-Day, fought his way toward Germany in the Battle of The Bulge, then built and blew up bridges in Germany, Austria and Northern Italy with an engineering brigade. I guess if you survive enough danger and live to 87, a little inrmity isnt going to stop your golf game. After dinner, Ray takes the clubs hes going to lend me to re-grip them in his workshop. Its a tiny but well-organized and useful space, with sets of small wrenches and drill bits hung and labeled neatly on the wall. Ray is shirtless, and from behind him as he works I can see his powerful back and shoulders sweating profusely. This World War II engineer ing-brigade hero is now a hard-working, jack-ofall-trades craftsman with a mission. Hes got the club shaft in a vise on his work table and hes slicing the old grip with a razor knife. Once he gets a clean cut, he wriggles and tugs on whats left of the grip, then pulls like hell to get it off. Ray may be 87 with all kinds of medical problems, but hes still got tremendous physical power and total concentration and determination. Once he gets a grip off, he unravels masking tape from the shaft; applies a uid from a container labeled Grip Solvent; wipes the shaft down; dries it; applies new masking tape; coats the masking tape with another foul smelling glue; takes a new grip and jams it on; removes excess glue from inside the grip by widening the hole at the end with a golf tee and then squeezing; wipes the new grip clean; opens the vise and takes the club out, laying it on a table on the porch to dry. In the morning, were starting a round of golf on a 95-degree Florida day. Rays down the middle with every shot. Bogie golf, he says. Thats all I want. Its time to tee off on No. 4, a par 3. Ray gets up over his ball, then seems suddenly woozy and backs away. Are you OK? I ask quietly. We can quit any time. A minute passes. Im OK now, he says, wiping his eyes with the back of his hand. The ball just started looking like an egg. Hes down the middle again, and approaches his second shot from about 25 yards out, wasting no time with practice swings. Rays ball hits the green, rolls, rolls, its heading for its in the hole! Ray makes a birdie with a ball that looked like an egg on the tee box! Forget about faltering, forget about quitting. This old soldiers no-quit courage runs so deep its in the marrow of his bones. Great birdie, Ray! As we move toward the last hole, Ray tallies up his score. With a bogie I could break my age, he says. This could be my best round since I got over pneumonia last month. So what do you think? Do you think this 87-yearold vet made his 86?

12A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 while second and third graders volunteered by putting stickers on every box of sandwiches. Interact, a community service club sponsored by Rotary International, endeavored to coordinate an event that would simultaneously serve the community, raise funds for their projects, and make a name for the club on campus. In accordance with their motto Service above self, once club members decided to break a world record, they sought to nd one that would be helpful to others, and they decided to make sandwiches because after breaking the record, they could donate the sandwiches to the hungry. Because the record-breaking event had a goal of community ser vice, Walmart awarded two grants to Interact for the use of purchasing supplies for the sandwiches. In addition, Pine View parents donated about $1,000, and Pine View members of National Junior Honor Society donated jelly. Initially, Interact club members decided to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because they seemed simple and familiar. An unexpected hurdle in their plans arose in March, when a Pine View mother raised concerns about using peanut butter for the sandwiches. Many students at Pine View, she noted, had peanut allergies, and making thousands of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the cafeteria could leave trace amounts of peanut butter, endangering students with allergies. Kemp, Palmer, and other Interact leaders agreed with the Pine View mother but also found themselves in a bind because using soy butter instead of peanut butter would exponentially increase their costs. Interact contacted companies that produced peanut butter replacements and solicited donations. Interact ended up receiving 54 pounds of WOWBUTTER, a toasted soy spread using no peanuts, in exchange for promoting the product at the event. Another obstacle arose when Eckrich Bacon Lovers Deli Meats broke the record only nine days before Pine Views attempt was scheduled. This New York deli made 2,706 sandwiches, which upped the number Pine View had to beat. We were not sorry to break their record only nine days later, Hayes said. Covert echoed similar comments. In true Pine View fashion, you didnt just beat it by 100, 200, 300. You beat it by 3,000. That is just incredible, Covert said to students at the ceremony. To ofcially hold a Guinness World record, there are specic requirements, including video and photographic proof and witnesses unafliated with the group breaking the record. Pine Views TV production class volunteered to lm the event from ve different angles so that, in theory, Guinness could see every single sandwich of the 5,721 that were made. Each of those sandwiches was also inspected by the ofcials who witnessed the event. Interact received so much support for the sandwich-making event that, after purchasing supplies, they had about $1,000 to donate to their global service project: Life for a Child, an organization that works to prevent death of children due to Type 1 diabetes. Life for a Child provides insulin and testing supplies to diabetic children in Third World countries. Fighting diabetes is one of the main causes that Interact supports, and it has supported this cause since Kemp, Palmer, and other friends founded the club in 2011. Diabetes is growing at a ridiculously high rate, Kemp said. Kemps younger brother Daniel has Type 1 diabetes, which inspired Kemp to become involved in the cause when he was in fourth grade. Although Pine View broke the record when Steve Largo was principal, current principal Covert expressed his appreciation of an event that both provided fun and fame for Pine View and also served to aid others. Both he and Hayes expressed interest in breaking another world record at Pine View in the future. We just have to nd what our next record will be, Covert said.RECORDFROM PAGE 1 www.bobcattrailgc.com (941) 429-0500 Located off I-75, Exit 179 50436456 Always a Beautiful Day at A Bob Tway Signature Course Weekdays $54 AM $44 PM $39 Before 8am BSGC $49 AM $39 PM Weekends $49 AM $39 PM $34 Before 8am BSGC $35 AM $30 PM Expires 12/8/13 $39$59$49$29 r rfnt fntbfbn n r f ntbt nr fff btr fbtf rf nffftb rfrntr 50436454 $ 179 $29 Valid through 12/15/13.

VENUE 3B SOUTH TRAIL 4B AROUND TOWN 8BWEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4, 2013 CONTACT US KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR 941-207-1000 kcool@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERSOUR TOWN Suncoast jazz fans enjoy a sort of melting pot of ne musicians whose creative talents enrich concerts, club dates and jams. The musical menu expands as seasonal residents return and visiting players from all over enhance many bands and events. The South County Jazz Club has grown steadily. Its third season offers 25 concerts by notable leaders and guest stars booked by its president, Morrie Trumble. It has expanded to four venues in the area. Recent concerts led by Venice residents Bob Delfausse and Bud Leeds are examples of the clubs programs. Both events showcased versatile players in compatible tunes and styles. Delfausses quintet performed his arrangements of tunes by classic lm, jazz and show music composers during an Oct. 25 concert at the Venice Art Center. These included Falling in Love with Love, Ive Got You Under my Skin, Poinciana, Time After Time and Long Ago and Far Away. Quintet members, who also play in the Sarasota Jazz Project big band, were Tony Benade on sax and ute, Jerry Eckert on piano, Dave Hubbell on bass guitar and Rich MacDonald on drums. Their resumes include performances with famous bands and artists, composing and arranging, teaching, directing events and recording. The concert included Eckerts arrangement of Undecided, sung in 1938 by Ella Fitzgerald with Chick Webb. Delfausse taught music theory and conducting for 22 years at Wagner College. He played trumpet in big bands, combos, Latin bands and shows in New York City, and he led a brass quintet. He also is a pianist, composer and arranger. His wife, Ann, is a cellist with the Venice Symphony. They became seasonal residents two years ago. Bob plays trumpet in Venice Concert, Royal Aires, Al Pierce and Sarasota Jazz Project bands, piano with Good Time Groove and Gentlemen of Jazz bands and subs in Sophisticated Swing and Ken Loomer bands and others. An eight-member dixieland ensemble led by clarinetist Bud Leed was featured in concert at the Englewood Art Center Nov. 8. It was a lively musical afternoon, opening with Marv Luckett playing bagpipes on Amazing Grace as he walked down the aisle. Some other wellplayed tunes were Bourbon Street Parade, Wolverine Blues, Honeysuckle Rose, and the closing Just a Little While to Stay Here. Highlights included banjoist Mike Evans vocal, including the verse, on Louisiana Fairytale, Leeds plaintive solo on Sidney Bechets Si Tu Vois Ma Mere, and empathetic duets by trombonists Marv Luckett and Gordon Moore. Others in the group were drummer Tony Martin, trumpeter Joe Bruno, bassist Don Mopsick and pianist Keith Carmen. These musicians are well-known as leaders and members of bands around the Suncoast and in many other states. They know the repertoire so well that they responded to Leeds hand signals for key changes and solos as if they had rehearsed, but they had not. Leeds led Jazz Affair groups for the Venice Symphony for 10 years and Dixie Spirit from 1999 at T.J. Carneys until it closed for renovations and rebranding earlier this year. Leeds produces concerts at Bay Indies Hall. The next one will star violinist Jonathan Russell with an all-star band on Jan. 5. Leeds led bands at Suncoast festivals at Clearwater Beach in November and in past summers in South County Jazz Club adds club dates, concerts and jamsBy BOB BYLERGUEST WRITER PHOTOS BY BOB BYLER Trombonist Marv Lucket opened the Nov. 8 concert by playing Amazing Grace on bagpipes as he entered the center. Bud Leeds ensemble at a South County Jazz CLub concert at the Englewood Art Center on Nov. 8 included, from left, Joe Bruno on trumpet, Bud Leeds on clarinet, banjo player/ vocalist Mike Evans, Gordon Moore on trombone, Tony Martin on drums, Don Massick on bass and Keith Carmen on piano.

JAZZ | 4 The story so far: Ive gawked at tall buildings, seen lewd puppets, been dazzled by Times Square and eaten the freshest bagel on Earth. Our original plan was to take bus and boat tours of the city on Friday but wed postponed them because of the threat of rain. Saturday was beautiful, so we headed to Times Square again to get our tickets. Its far less impressive in the daylight, even though our tour line was based at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, which had a full-size gure of Justin Timberlake outside. If you go to the museum, take note: The security guards do not nd it amusing if you walk around with matches trying to light the candles. We decided to take the boat tour rst, so it was on to the pier mere blocks away really long New York blocks. Most of the city is laid out in a grid because the earliest parts developed on their own and have streets criss-crossing like spaghetti six streets come together at one particular intersection in the villages. City planners werent going to allow the rest of New York to develop in the same way. The grid makes it pretty easy to get around, once you deal with a few street-name anomalies (for instance, avenues are numbered, except when theyre not). But there are short city blocks, long city blocks and really long city blocks, depending on where you are and which way youre heading. Short is better. MUCH better. The boat ride is a delightful way to see the city panorama from the pier to the UN and back, including a pass-by of the Statue of Liberty, and youll get a real education, if youre lucky enough to get a funny, well-spoken native tour guide like Mike, the one on our boat. (Make sure you tip on the way out, and if you get Mike, make small talk with him about grammar. Seriously.)

WELL-BEING 2B WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4, 2013 CONTACT US 941-207-1102 ablackwell@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERSTraveling during the holidays can be more stressful than usual lost luggage, jet lag, airport delays, airport security. Surveys show people with hearing loss rate airport sound systems among the most difcult to hear, making travel particularly stressful.Hints for airline travel1. When making ight reservations, request text message alerts. 2. Look for visual clues. Many airports use LED screens with written information about ights. 3. If there are no screens, let the agents know you have a hearing problem. Ask them to let you know about any important changes. 4. Sit near the gate and keep an eye on the agents and any sudden urry of activity. You may be able to lip-read (if the microphone is not in front of their mouth). 5. Many airports use the loop system. Look for the blue ear sign. Turn on the telecoil in your hearing aid or cochlear implant to receive sound directly to your ears. 6. Know that you are allowed to go through security checkpoints, while wearing your hearing aids or cochlear implants. Keep them on to ensure more successful communication. If you are still concerned, request a pat-down security check. 7. Carry printed copies of all your reservations. 8. Keep your hearing aids, cochlear implants, batteries, tubing and spare parts with you, where they are accessible. Do not pack them in your checked baggage. 9. If you are traveling to a warmer climate, take your dehumidier along. It will ensure that moisture stays out of your aids and it is a good storage place when you go swimming. 10. Hearing equipment does not interfere with the planes computer ized system. It is not necessary to remove them during the ight. However, if you nd the airplane noise too loud, you can lower the volume or take them off. 11. If your ears are affected by pressure equalization, try earplanes (in the drug store for about $5). 12. Let your seat mate know you are not able to hear. 13. Make sure you have all your hearing equipment with you when you exit the airplane. If you have concerns about ying with hearing equipment, contact TSA Cares. This is a hotline for people with disabilities or medical conditions. Call 855-787-2227 or visit Tsa. gov/traveler-information/ travelers-disabilities-andmedical-conditions.Hints for staying at a hotel1. Choose a hotel that offers assistance to the deaf and hard of hearing (the Americans with Disabilities Act requires that hotels provide accommodations. Some smaller bed and breakfasts are exempt.) 2. Let the hotel know when making the reservation that you have a hearing loss and will need accommodation. 3. Ask what types of accommodations are offered closed-captioned television, ashing smoke detector, vibrating alarm clock, ashing phone ringer, TTY phone services and knock-ondoor alert system.Hint for staying in relatives homeKeep your hearing equipment in the same place every night out of reach of curious small children and hungry animals. You need not face hear ing loss alone. You can receive support, education and advocacy from the mentors and members of the local chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America by contacting info@HLAS/org or calling 941-706-4312.

There will be food, rafes, beer and wine. Visit: Girls Night Out/ Written and directed by Victor Legaretta, the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre production of Swingin Christmas seems to have been tainted by the mischievous elf mentioned in the rst scene. Supposedly the story of the romance of Mr. and Mrs. Claus (Paul Glodfelter and Autumn ORyan), the two-act musical show needs some rearranging and some cutting. Amy Marie McClearys choreography is terric but two nearly back-to-back mod numbers in the rst act need to be separated even though both are visually stunning. It is too much of a good thing and especially apparent in the un-Christmassy rst act. Instead we get Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning and Shakin the Blues Away separated by We Are Santas Elves. Consider that Santa Claus has been around since long before the 20th century yet the music of his romance with Mrs. Claus is all 20th century. Act two is all about Christmas with such pop tunes as Jingle Bell Rock, Rockin Around the Christmas Tree, Here Comes Santa Claus and Over the River and Through the Woods. Glodfelter does a good Elvis impression on Blue Christmas, which he sings with the females in the cast. Then we go for a Sleigh Ride in the Park. It is like no sleigh ride ever as the passengers are bounced and jarred as though on Thunder Mountain Railway in the Magic Kingdom. A sleigh ride through the snow especially in a park is a pleasant experience. Such a ride is smooth, not bouncy. Perhaps this was an attempt at humor by someone unfamiliar with sleigh rides. Act two has a visually stunning number that brings the show to a per fect close with Sacred Trio and O Holy Night. Sadly, it did not. Instead, the curtain rises yet again and the scene switches from the church and choir to the Claus home at the North Pole and a second ending Santa Claus is Coming to Town. One ending is enough. One act also would be enough Act 2 is the stronger act. The best part of the show is McClearys choreography and the dancing by the strong ensemble: Danielle Barnes, Kiersten Benzing, Emilia Brown, Denzel Edmondson, Timmy Hays, Donovan Hoffer, Chris Kane, Kerry Lambert, Jimmy Robertson, Nina Schrenkengost and Drew Stark. Lead singers Nick Lerew and Megan Lee Miller handle their roles well and the backup music conducted by Loren Strickland is ne. As always, the buffet provides a tasty beginning. With serious cutting and rearranging, this holiday show could be almost as good. Coming on the heels of CATS, which was so terric, this was a major disappointment. Opening Dec. 28 and playing through Feb. 15 is South Pacic. Swingin Christmas continues through Dec. 25 at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, 1380 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers.

SOUTH TRAIL 4B WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4, 2013 CONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS The Early Learning Coalition of Sarasota County is overseeing a new state program that is allowing easier access to child care for area homeless families. In July, Early Learning came out with new, Florida Legislaturemandated criteria stating that children of homeless families are eligible for state-funded scholarships on a priority basis for a certain period of time. The coalition, which also receives assistance from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation in Venice, provides administration and over sight of the local system of early education for preschool-age children in Sarasota County, ensuring quality child care, early learning and family access to services for young children. It serves more than 4,000 children. Thats really a good thing, because it opened up for any child of a homeless family thats involved with a program that offers case management, coalition Executive Director Janet Kahn said. It wont be some random person saying theyre homeless and needs child care. It has to be referred from an organization thats part of the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness. Kahn said Suncoast Partnership has a list of the different programs in the community that work with families and provide case management. We have memorandums of understanding with those organizations that they can refer families who need child care to us so we can now offer those services with our state dollars, she said. Now we can use foundation money to extend beyond the time-limited referral or for a family that might need additional assistance related to child care. The coalition covers the cost of child care. It has contracts with sites that are considered school-readiness providers, meaning the sites meet criteria established by state legislation. The parent chooses a facility, then the coalition pays for the child care based on rates that it has established for various ages. Parents do have a co-pay, but for someone who has very little income, its nominal. Kahn said the coalition has served about 15 families countywide since the legislation took effect in July. She added that based on the numbers of homeless expert Dr. Robert Marbuts recent survey, showing there were 637 homeless children in Sarasota County theres potential to help at least 100 kids. Prior to getting state funding, the coalition was able to help about six children. Marbut maintains Englewood leads the county in homeless families, followed closely by North Port and Nokomis. Its a new service and people are still nding their way, Kahn said. Some of those children might already be in a shelter situation. Even though we see this broad number of homeless children out there, not all of them would necessarily need child care. The law also addresses children who are in domestic violence situations. Kahn said there already have been some referrals from the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center of Sarasota County, and other domestic violence shelters. We want to be able to serve all the children who need it who are in a homeless situation, and what we see is that it provides a benet for the child in an early learning program where theyre getting education, (and) getting screenings and assessments, so we can catch any concerns early, Kahn said. If there are 100 children out there between the ages of 0 and 5 that need to be served, we want to be able to serve them, and as our community works on the issue of homelessness, hopefully the number of children in those situations will be reduced over time.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comHomeless Sarasota families get child careBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER Sarasota County commissioners used a recent workshop to pick between a proposed sports complex or ofce/ industrial park on a 42acre plot of surplus land in North County, with the ofce park ultimately being chosen based on its ability to be more of an economic driver for the community. The workshop gave the public a look at how the invitation to negotiate, or ITN, process works. By denition, an ITN is a formal, competitive solicitation for the purchase of goods and/ or services, where factors other than price, such as design and scope of work, are to be considered in the award determination. Commissioners reviewed the submissions from Benderson Development and Goodsports Inc. for the land located at the corner of Fruitville and Coburn roads in Sarasota, about a mile east of Interstate 75. Bendersons proposal included a business park for light manufacturing, assembly warehousing, distribution, research and development and related ofces. Initial construction includes a 200,000-square-foot multi-tenant building. Larry Fineberg of Benderson Development said he gets calls from companies wanting to come to Sarasota and be near the inter state, adding he had a company that would be willing to sign a lease for 15,000 square feet. Commissioners dissected the design of the buildings on the site, with Commissioner Nora Patterson going as far as saying some of them look like Army barracks. We want to build facilities that will attract any kind of business, Fineberg said. What were trying to bring in are businesses that attract job creation. Were going to make it t with everything else around there and make every thing around there more valuable. A drawing of Goodsports proposed complex presented last Tuesday includes two event elds, a 60,000-square-foot eld house, hotel, village center and farmers market. Goodsports recently had a project approved in Wichita, Kan., and has been approached by the city of Indianapolis for another. Goodsports vice president of development Anthony Homer said the park could bring in 7,000 people on weekends for events. Benderson has offered $2.5 million for the land. In its proposal, Goodsports offered to lease the land for $1 per year for 50 years, with two 25-year extensions. Homer said that Goodsports was open to negotiating on lease terms if it was chosen. Documents state company ofcials had planned to invest about $65 million in the property. Bendersons proposal did not list cost estimates for the buildings. Commissioners voted 3-2 to accept the Benderson proposal. Commissioner Joe Barbetta, who sits on the Sarasota County Economic Development Corporations board of directors, said that board has been concerned about a lack of facilities in the county similar to the Benderson proposal for the last two years. Commissioner Christine Robinson said shes had companies call her and specically say they want a Sarasota address, despite oppor tunities in South County. The location really does matter in this situation, Robinson said. I wish we could ll more in South County, but these folks want the Sarasota address and they want to be near the airport. Patterson and Commissioner Charles Hines were the dissenting votes. Hines said he wanted more options because the ITN was only advertised for 45 days. The proposals were too conceptual in a way, Hines said. I was really looking for more detail and maybe some other proposals.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comCounty picks business park over sports complexBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITERHURDLE CLEARED FOR SPORTS PARKIn other business last Tuesday, county commissioners learned that neighbors of a 115-acre section of land would remove about 20 feet of fencing, clearing the way for the county to move forward with the purchase of the vacant property near the Newtown area of Sarasota with the hope of eventually turning it into a sports park. Earlier this month, commissioners unanimously voted to spend $2.2 million for the 115-acre parcel, located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Way and Tuttle Avenue on the north side of downtown Sarasota. The county was given the option of purchasing the land as part of a potential deal where it would acquire the utility assets of Dolomite Utilities Corp. and Aqua Utilities Florida Inc., whose plant is located near University Parkway and I-75 in Sarasota. County officials have said there is a need for more athletic fields; current facilities are already heavily used by football and soccer leagues in the county. Plans have not been revealed as to what kind of fields would be placed on the property, which is close to Ed Smith Stadium and its practice fields, along with a Cal Ripken baseball complex located just across the street. The county is expected to close on the Dolomite deal next month. According to documents, the property would be paid for using surtax revenue from the penny sales tax.

As a longtime contributor to the now-defunct traditionalist Mississippi Rag magazine, I look forward to a Feb. 14 concert by German saxophonist Klaus Baders band at the Venice Art Center and the legendary Jim Cullums Riverwalk Jazz Band at the Glenwood Performing Arts Center, 7333 Scotland Way in Sarasota. The center also will stage bands by nationally known leaders Nate Najar, Larry Coryell, Cynthia Sayer and Howard Alden. Two onetime venues for the club are a Dec. 22 free Christmas concert at the Venice downtown gazebo and Selby Gardens in Sarasota where June Garbers quartet will play at the annual Selby Spring Music Concert from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. April 13. Weekly jam sessionsThe SCJC weekly jam sessions are now independent. Find them at the Venice Ramada Inn from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays, led by drummer Dane Hassan with vibist Jack Fanning, pianist Tommy Goodman, bassist Dominic Mancini and guest musicians. The Allegro Bistro on Venice Avenue hosts Debra Opies jams on Thursday evening and dual saxman Ron Drischels trio on Monday. The Venice Senior Friendship Center features various g roups for dancing every weekday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the center, 2350 Scenic Drive. The variety of musical offerings around the Suncoast was a key factor in our decision to move here from Ohio in 2001. This is a musical mecca in my mind, and it has not disappointed. I find that fans of many styles of fine music share my enthusiasm.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5B Times Square to get on the tour bus. (Were still puzzling over why the pier isnt a stop on the bus tour route.) It was worth it, though, to get a glimpse of The Naked Cowboy alas, not the original, just a franchisee whose outt consisted of the mandatory cowboy hat, guitar, tighty whiteys (talk about deceptive advertising) and boots. Its the same uniform rain or shine, hot or cold. (For franchise information or to hire The Naked Cowboy to ofciate your wedding, visit you guessed it NakedCowboy.com.) By riding the bus after the boat tour, you see the sights with a little bit of context. You can jump off at any stop to explore more in depth and get back on at your convenience, but whatever you do, if seated on the upper level, DONT stand up while the bus is in motion. Thats dangerous to be gin with, but street signs and trafc lights hang so low that you could easily suffer a head injury from getting up just enough to stretch a little. We got off the bus in order to go to a Middle Eastern restaurant called Moustache for what by then was a very late lunch. Though we were the only people there, the service left something to be desired, partly because, for the rst and only time, we had a bit of a language barrier, resulting in my being served the wrong beer. The place was clean, though, and the food was excellent. I recommend the merguez sandwich, which can feed two easily. Or just me. Many restaurants display their sanitation rating in their front window. I never saw one that wasnt an A, so either the restaurant has the option of where to display it or the ratings are a result of grade ination. They also commonly display their Zagat Survey rating; 20 and higher on a 0-30 scale is considered good for food. I dont know how much weight to give those numbers either, since they cant be kept cur rent, and theres always a risk of a bad meal in even the best eatery. I can tell you I never saw a rating lower than 20, which is not surprising, since these numbers denitely dont have to be displayed. Regardless, New York is a food-lovers paradise. Theres probably no cuisine not represented and nothing you cant get at any hour of the day or night, eat in or delivery. In some areas of the city, your greatest risk of being hit by a vehicle is not by a car but by someone on a bike delivering food. And the prices werent as high as I expected. Our meals were in the $12-$20 range (not counting beverages), which I think is entirely appropriate for a quality meal in a unique restaurant locally, let alone in New York. You can certainly pay a lot more for dinner a magazine article mentioned a $118 steak (for two, supposedly), which I hope the chef cuts and feeds to you. But you can eat very well for reasonable prices and pretty well for a bargain. Many places in Midtown Manhattan offer a $1.99 breakfast, and there are carts all over offering all kinds of food at low prices. After lunch, we went to Venieros Pasticceria & Caffe, which bills itself as Americas oldest Italian pastry shop. Its been in business since 1894, so it could be true. It was packed with customers late Saturday afternoon, many of them probably carrying on a family tradition by shopping there. But they could have waited Venieros would be open until 1 a.m., later than some bars around here. One of New Yorks many charms is the history of its businesses. Our bus tour guide was constantly pointing out stores and restaurants founded long before Venice was a city, with many of them still owned by the original family, as Venieros is. You have to admire that kind of staying power. I could name places in this area that are in their fourth or fth incarnation just in the 28 years Ive lived here. We had talked about going back to Greenwich Village, which we saw from the bus, to get a drink and listen to music Saturday night but lacked the ambition to leave the apartment. Hence, I missed out on what would have been my nal quintessential New York experience of this visit: a subway ride. We strolled through Central Park for a bit on the way to breakfast Sunday morning, and I got to spend a few minutes in the American Museum of Natural History, the setting for the movie Night at the Museum. Its another of the places where local knowledge comes in handy. You have to have a ticket to get in, with a suggested general admission price of $22. The word suggested means exactly what it says its suggested you pay $22. But you can suggest youd rather pay a different, lower amount, and it will be accepted, no questions asked (but only if you get your tickets in person; online, $22 isnt a mere suggestion). Im sure the museum dedicated to Theodore Roosevelt is worth every penny, but I only wanted to go in the museum shop, for which I needed a ticket, so we paid less. Yes, we peeked at the dinosaur exhibit, but we each spent more than $22 in the store, so the museum made out OK. After that, it was time to catch a ight. And that was just the taxi ride to LaGuardia. We also needed to get on a plane back to Florida. A long weekend was just enough to get a good taste of all that New York has to offer, but far too little to truly experience all that makes it the greatest city in the world. Does another city have a Museum Mile nine museums on one street? How can you do them justice in three days? My guess is that would take a month for full immersion, which isnt practical for us working stiffs who cant be on vacation that long. It would also take a lot more money, especially if youre going to go in style. I think youd need to see a Broadway show (the best seats for the top shows go for more than $300 each); attend a sporting event (the least youd pay for a courtside seat at a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden is more than $700, plus fees); enjoy a really fancy meal, such as the aforementioned $118 steak (with side dishes offered a la carte, Id bet); and do several dozen other things you cant do elsewhere. Since I have limited time and less money, Ill have to settle for a lot of little bites at the Big Apple. Im already looking forward to the next one.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.com SUN PHOTO BY BOB MUDGEThe Wall Street bull started life as a piece of guerrilla art it appeared in a park overnight and immediately became so popular it was moved to its current location, where its usually mobbed by tourists.

CLASS ACTS 7B WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4, 2013 CONTACT US 941-207-1102 ablackwell@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS Students from several Venice High School classrooms participated in a week-long fundraiser called See the Change, Nov. 11-15. The drive raised $1,237 to buy Thanksgiving meals at Publix for local families in need. The students placed buckets to collect coins from students in 25 classrooms for five days. The project was planned by the peer counseling group Wolfe Peers Assisting and Counseling, also known as Wolfe PAC. The classroom that collected the most change won a breakfast party. Wolfe PAC, advised by School Counselor and Senior Activities Adviser Nicole Wolfe, was formed in 2008 with a grant from New College of Florida and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation.

She weighs 47 pounds, is housebroken, crate trained and knows many commands. She has lived with men, women and children, and it wasnt very pleasant.

In an effort to attract younger singers from across the state, the chorus has installed a new leadership team that combines youth, energy and musical experience. Last January, the chorus brought in Byron Poore, 35, from Land O Lakes, Fla., as its director. Then in September, the chorus elected Patrick Kilbane, 34, of Sarasota to serve as president. In October, to add wisdom and experience to the young leadership team, the chorus added Duane Fenn from Fort Myers to serve as assistant director. Despite his youth, Byron Poore brings 20 years experience in barbershop singing to the chorus. His experience includes his role as assistant director for the Heralds of Harmony chorus in Tampa and other choruses in the state, and he has competed with several excellent quartets. A stickler for vocal production and excellent singing quality, he has noticeably improved the sound of the chorus, according to unbiased observers. This has resulted in a dramatic inux of new singers. Evidence of the chorus new music and new sound will be on display at two shows on Saturday, Feb. 22, in Sarasota at the Riverview Performing Arts Center. This show, titled Shake, Rattle, and Roll with the Chorus of the Keys could easily sell out because, in addition to hearing the chorus belt out a number of very entertaining rock and roll numbers, the audience will be treated to the sounds of two internationally acclaimed quartets, Acoustix and Live Out Loud, a Sweet Adelines quartet which performed in last years show.

December 4 10, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 As the editor of Lets Go! you cant miss Christmas. Whether it be the red and green display ads I see as I lay out the section, or remembering to add turkeys for everyone to count, there is no denying Christmas is upon us. Englewood is celebrating this week with ne arts festivals and a Christmas Parade in Rotonda. Punta Gorda is holding their annual Holly Days Home Tour, just in case youre like me and havent decorated the house yet you can get some ideas. Dont get me wrong, Ive wanted to, but where does the time go? Venice is putting on their boat parade, after all, on Saturday and there are holiday concerts lined up all month so make sure youre reading the calendar as well. I encourage everyone, if you havent already donated food to a food drive, given some change to the bell ringers or adopted a child to buy gifts for this year to do so. One of the things I love most about the Christmas season isnt the trees, lights or holiday parades, its the spirit of giving that so many people nd this time of year. When youre buying the whole toy section for your grandkids, who, lets be honest, dont need any more toys, pick something up for the Salvation Army drop box. Or call the homeless shelter and ask for a specic family you can buy food or gifts for this Christmas. Believe it or not, youll be the one bene ting the most from the experience. Casey Ortlieb Lets Go! Editor Casey Ortlieb Lets Go! Editor Sarasotas Museum of Art & Whimsy might end up hosting one of the areas largest cookie swaps on Saturday. It all depends on Sun readers. When you bake your holiday cookies, set aside two dozen for the museums fourth annual Cookies n Cans Party, which will be Saturday, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the museum, 2121 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Be sure to RSVP in advance at 941-364-3399 or via email to: Info@ WhimsyMuseum.org. Saturday, bring your cookies to swap and something nonper ishable and non-breakable to give to All Faiths Food Bank, which can always use more food especially during the holiday season. If you have yet to see Hairspray at Venice Theatre, you have until Sunday afternoon. This is one funny and delightful, and a little bit naughty, show. Call 941-4881115 or visit: VeniceStage.com.

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 4 10, 2013 DINING OUTVince Formosa, owner of Cafe Italiano in Arcadia, never has to look for a place that serves food just like his mother used to make, as many of the rest of us have to do. That's because he is the one making the food himself. Using techniques and combinations of ingredients that have been handed down from his Italian immigrant grandmother to his Chicago-raised mother to him, Formosa has cultivated a menu and a style of cooking that would make any mama proud. "Many of my dishes have evolved from family recipes, like my homemade Italian sausage and my meatballs," he said. "I try to maintain the same standards that my parents and grandparents did. So I use only the freshest and nest ingredients, and I don't allow processed food in my restau rant or my home." Inside his 65-seat restaurant, Formosa has re-created not only the food, but also the atmosphere of an Italian cafe. There are four separate dining rooms, making the dining experience even more intimate, and the walls are hand-painted in Venetian and Italian landscapes. Outside are 25 more seats in the arcade. Each dish Formosa serves is freshly prepared and made to order, right down to the homemade marinara and Alfredo sauces, so if it takes a little more time to do that, it is worth it. After all, when Euro peans dine out, they keep a table for the evening, taking time to fully enjoy each course. "I like to classify our restaurant as 'ne dining in a casual setting,'" Formosa said. "Our cuisine is Italian continental, with some American cuisine involved, too." Though there are some very popular entree favorites on the Cafe Italiano menu, like fettucini Alfredo, grouper piccata, scampi Napolitano and Alfredo Florentine, the restaurant is probably best known for its brick oven pizza. Formosa says that there is even one couple who frequently drive over from the east coast for business, and insist on having one of the pies each time before they head back home. "The pizza is a thin crust, 'Chicago tavern' style," he said. "It's very similar to a pizza you would nd in New York or Connecticut. We make all our own dough and all of our sauces are my recipes and homemade." And don't plan on leaving Cafe Italiano before you have one of Formosa's home made desserts. His Italian cheesecake and award-winning ourless dark true cake will provide the perfect ending to your authentic Italian dining experience. Formosa says that he has enjoyed bringing the recipes of his family and the culture of the Italian people to his Arcadia restaurant, having previously been in the hospitality business for decades in Lee County. "People here have been so supportive (of the restaurant)," he said. "It's a small town, which is very dierent from where I was. We're just very thankful to be here." Mama would approve. Cafe Italiano is at 117 West Oak Street in Arcadia, and is open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. The hours are 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., lunch and 4:30 to 8 p.m., dinner. Rooms in the restau rant can be rented for private parties and Formosa also does outside catering, if you would like someone else to cook for your holiday gathering.

December 4 10, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 7 DINING OUT When Joe Szych Sr. moved to Southwest Florida, he couldnt nd authentic Italian pizza like he enjoyed at Marcos Pizza while living in Toledo, Ohio. His son, Joe Jr., was employed at Marcos in Toledo for 14 years. So, father asked son to move to Florida and become his partner in purchasing a Marcos Pizza franchise in North Port. That was ve years ago, and business has been so successful that the Szychs decided to open a second location at 19451 Cochran Blvd., in Port Charlotte, that recently had its grand opening. I grew up on Marcos pizza, Joe Jr. said. Im pleased to be co-owner of a business that I love. And I like Florida, but I miss the seasons. I want to take my three young children back there someday so that they can enjoy some fun in the snow as I did as a kid. Marcos Pizza claims that their pizza is so good because dough is made the traditional way, fresh from scratch every day. The sauce is made from vine-ripened tomatoes just hours after picking, and a signature blend of herbs and spices added; a blend of three fresh cheeses, never frozen, is at the heart of authentic, fresh taste; hearty robust servings of real meat, quality and abundance is the authentic Italian way. Build-your-own pizzas are available in original or crispy thin crust styles. There are 20 toppings available, and garlic butter, parmesan cheese and Roma seasoning are free crust toppers. Specialty pizzas are also available such as Hawaiian chicken, meat supreme and white cheezy. The latter has four types of cheese including feta, bacon, onions, sliced tomatoes and garlic butter sauce. It was an award-winning pizza in California, and excellent on a crispy thin crust. Try it; youll love it. For pepperoni lovers, try the pepperoni magnico which includes two kinds of pepperoni. Marcos oers a variety of salads, and 6-inch or 12-inch subs on rustic wheat or Italian white rolls. According to Joe Jr., the most popular is the Italiano that includes ham, salami, provolone cheese, banana peppers, tomatoes, red onions and sub dressing. For some extra fun, try the popular cheezy bread (fresh-baked bread strips with three types of cheese and garlic butter, topped with parmesan and Roma seasoning, served with pizza sauce and ranch sauce for dipping), or the meatball bake (Marcos meatballs and sausages baked with signature sauce and cheese blend). Also on the menu are chicken wings, chicken dippers and cinna squares (a buttery fresh baked pastry, topped with cinnamon, sugar and a side of vanilla icing). Business hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Marcos will delight groups, large or small, for oce meetings, luncheons, or special events. If you need a fundraiser, Marcos can help create a successful event. Dine in or call 941-629-2929 for takeout, or you may order online at www.marcos. com. Delivery is available within a ve-mile radius. Charge is $2.50 for an $8 minimum order. Go to the website to join Marcos email club and receive a welcome reward delivered straight to your inbox, a gift for your birthday, and the freshest information about Marcos specials.

December 4 10, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 9 Delivery Man is an unusual comedy starring Vince Vaughn, the big guy who has portrayed likable, amusing and fast-talking characters in other lms. But this movie and Vaughns character is dierent. First, theres the odd story from writer/director Ken Scott, a remake from his own fairly recent original French-Canadian lm Starbuck. Vaughn plays David Wozniak, an inept delivery truck driver for his familys meat market. He learns that he has fathered 533 children from past sperm donations and now 142 of them have led a class-action lawsuit to unmask his anonymity. His equally incompetent lawyer friend Brett (Chris Pratt) is there to help him but only makes the situation worse. Meanwhile, Wozniak starts poking, one-by-one, into the lives of his unaware legions of children and starts discovering his own inner father. Unlikely and absurd? You betcha. Vince Vaughn is on my short list of favorite mid-age comedy movie actors along with guys like Owen Wilson, Steve Carell, Jack Black and Paul Rudd. In Delivery Man, you can still appreciate Vaughns screen charisma, eye-popping and that odd way he has of pushing his hair back when hes nervous. Here, hes good as a sensitive slacker working to impress his pregnant girlfriend Emma (Cobie Smulders) and his wacky family. That, while trying to connect with his newfound kids. I also enjoyed the scenes with the quirky friend played by talented Chris Pratt, who you may recognize as Andy from the Parks and Recreation TV sitcom. The small parts with the late teens/early 20s kids are played by an almost overly wholesome cast. There are some clean, quality comedy bits throughout Delivery Man and, intentionally, its also a feel good lm. It released the same day as mega blockbuster The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which showed on way too many screens. And Delivery Man is not a holiday lm it might have grabbed more eyeballs if it coincided with Fathers Day. Still, its peculiar and funny enough to deserve a viewing. By TOM LOVASKO grabbed more eyeballs if it coincided with Fathers Day. Still, says...Go!

Go to www.oldeen glewood.com for more information.Fine Arts Feature on DearbornBy Chris KourapisSUN CORRESPONDENT Englewood area residents and families from surrounding communities are looking forward to attending a seventh annual Rotonda West Christmas Parade this Saturday. Over 60 oats and marching units are expected to participate, and thousands of spectators will be lining the parade route. The theme this year is "Christmas in Rotonda," and the Rotonda West Associ ation's Community Relations committee invites parade attendees to help by donating nonperishable food items. Golf carts donated by Thoroughbred Golf Carts will travel the parade route to pick up donations. Last year attendees donated nearly 2,000 pounds of canned goods, toys and more than $600 in cash and checks. It's important to note that food and funds go directly to beneciary Englewood Helping Hand. Giels and Webster, an engineering rm headed by company chairman Jonathon Cole, has loaned the parade committee tractors and a atbed trailer for transporting donations to the Helping Hand organization. Expected to participate in the parade are faith-based groups and churches, the American Legion, the Cultural Guild of the Greater Cape Haze Peninsula, antique car enthusiasts, the Rotonda West Women's Club, The Lemon Bay High School Marching Band, equestrian riders, civic and service organizations, small businesses, nonprot community organizations, musical groups and members of the local VFW post. The honor guard from the Rotonda VFW Post 10476 and the High School's ROTC unit will lead the parade and carry the colors of the four military branches. As always, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will arrive by sleigh at the end of the parade to ocially usher in the Christmas season. "Our parade has a small town, downhome spirit, and marchers and spectators always have fun with it. Most parades take place in downtown business districts while ours proceeds along the community's residential area," said Earl Haas, parade committee chairman." Haas is assisted by members Russ Kulp and Linda Bondeson (committee co-chairs), Don Mahon, Sue Killion, Ginni Mahon and Ruth Sargent. Judges Ken and Tammy Birdsong and Chris Phelps will keep score at the mid-point of the parade. Birdsong, along with Ken Kuenzie, will broadcast live on WENG radio during the event. "Clowns Like Us," the big winners last year, will be on hand to defend their title on Saturday. No entry fee is required, and late comers are welcome to register and join the parade. They may, however, have to take up the rear, which isn't a problem, according to Chairman Haas, "since that's where Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive on the scene." At 2 p.m. on Dec. 7 the parade sets o from Rotonda Boulevard North, proceeds east on Rotonda North towards Rotonda Circle and continues for about three miles to the Oakland Hills Marina (across from the Rotonda Hills Restaurant). Spectators are encouraged to bring chairs and water in order to be comfortable during the parade. A rain date has been set of Dec. 8.

12 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 4 10, 2013 EVENTS THIS WEEK IF YOU GOThe Punta Gorda Garden Clubs 20th annual Holly Days Home Tour, A Tropical Holiday to Remember, is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 6 and 7 in the Punta Gorda Historic District. The four homes, all fabulously decorated for the holidays with mostly natural materials, are at 308 W. Ann St., 114 McGregor St., 117 Durrance St. and 724 W. Olympia Ave. Tickets for the tour are a $15 donation and may be purchased in advance from club members, the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce, 252 W. Marion Ave., the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce in the Freeman House, 311 W. Retta Esplanade, and Charlotte State Bank, 2331 Tamiami Trail, all in Punta Gorda. Tickets also will be available at each home on the days of the tour, as well as at the historic First United Methodist Church, 507 W. Marion Ave., where ticketholders can indulge in free cookies and punch and purchase poinsettias, gardening items, note cards that feature original sketches of the clubs community gardens and other holiday gifts. Please contact Kay Amodio at 941-637-9978 or Carol Moore at 941-575-4653, or visit the club at www.pggc.org for more details. All proceeds go to scholarships and community projects. Go to http://flgc.esiteasp.com/puntagordagardenclub/hometour.nxg for more photos and information. If its the rst weekend of December, the traditional kicko for the holidays around here, you can count on the ladies of the Punta Gorda Garden Club to stage an event that draws people from all over Southwest Florida. Their popular Holly Days Home Tour has been a signature event on a crowded holiday calendar for 20 years and provides the club with money it puts to very good use in the community. This years 20th tour, titled A Tropical Holiday to Remember, is Dec. 6 and 7, and members are hoping to match or exceed last years record numbers. The reason for the popularity is simple. Tourgoers get a rare opportunity to see the inside of a Historic District home and a look at how local plant materials, such as palm tree parts can be used to decorate for the holidays. Last year was a huge year for us; we had way over a thousand people, tour vice chair Carol Moore said. We had to reprint the tickets twice. We took in $1,900. It was amazing. The growing attendance at the home tour has prompted a change in hours this year. Moore said, We decided to change the hours to start an hour earlier (11 a.m.). Why not; the houses are ready. The price of the tour is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking for holiday decorating ideas, especially ladies who may want to try something dierent. The centerpiece of each home is always a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, and rooms and porches are lled with decorating touches youve never thought of made from materials you might nd in your own home landscape. Many attendees bring a camera and a notebook to capture their favorite ideas. The four homes on this years tour are a good mix. They range from a true 1910-vintage Florida Cracker cottage to a new Cracker-style home built in 2012 to exacting historical standards. One home was built during the boom construction of the 1920s on a lot town founder Isaac Trabue sold to a friend. The home on McGregor Street received no damage from Hurricane Charley, an event called a miracle when President Bush visited Punta Gorda after the storm. The ticket you purchase is actually a pamphlet that will ll you in on the houses histories and the current owners. Buy one and enjoy history and beautiful decorations while contributing to a good cause, the perfect way to kick o the holiday season. The club traditionally uses the proceeds to fund four college scholarships to local high school students.

December 4 10, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 13 EVENTS THIS WEEK If you are a motor vehicle enthusiast, one show you will not want to miss is the Florida Hot Rods and Hogs Car and Bike Show. Rolling back into the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center on Sunday, Dec. 8, this is the largest single-day car and bike show in the state of Florida. Fans of vintage vehicles, hot rods, trucks, drag and airboats, swamp buggies, and worldclass bikes will enjoy the roaring engines, gleaming chrome and retro dcor that can be seen at the show. On display will be both rare and highly desirable classic cars from a golden age and the velocity and ingenuity of motorcycle dream machines. Tony Allen, Florida Hot Rods and Hogs Founder, says shows like this one are a respectful nod to the past. The enthusiasm shown by young and old when they see these cars and bikes on display is exciting, he said. The show is my way of bringing back a little history and nostalgia of the classic cars built with tradition and the cycles that bring art to life on wheels. This show consists of everything motor sport, and is sure to catch the eye of car enthu siasts and collectors alike. Patrons can relive the glory days with Fords, Harley Davidson Knuckleheads, Chevys, Corvettes, Indian Motorcycles and much more. This years automotive celebrity lineup for the event will include racecar driver Camee Edelbrock, "My Classic Car" host Dennis Gage and "Barrett-Jackson Classic Car" auctioneers Spanky and Amy Assiter. Camee Edelbrock is a third generation auto motive enthusiast and racecar driver. She is the granddaughter of the famed Vic Edelbrock Sr., who raced across the dry lakes of southern California in his 1932 Ford Roadster, setting a speed record of 121 mph right before WWII. Edelbrock started racing on water skis in the sport of speed skiing where races typically ranged in length from 50 to 75 miles in the lakes and oceans of Southern California. From speed skiing, Edelbrocks interests moved to oshore boat racing and nally road racing. After a course at Bondurant High-Performance Driving School, she raced vintage cars across the country in the growing sport of vintage road racing, and earned several awards while racing her 1966 Shelby Mustang. Cars are in my blood, Edelbrock said. "Im excited to get down there in December to see awesome cars and bikes, but Im even more excited to share my story and my enthusiasm for speed with the people of Southwest Florida. "My Classic Car" host Dennis Gage will also be rolling into the Florida Hot Rods & Hogs Car and Bike Show. As the host of his show, Gage travels the world soaking up classic car enthusiasts' stories and visiting everything from local cruise-ins to the most prestigious car shows in the world. I have the ultimate job," Gage said. "I get to travel the world, sample car culture and visit with classic car enthusiasts. So I'm looking forward to getting down to Southwest Florida to see some cool cars and bikes, meet new people and share stories with them about Americas love aair with the automobile." Another pair of car lovers joining the show is Amy and Spanky Assiter. The Assiters are celebrity stars from the "BarrettJackson Classic Car Auction." Spanky has been in the auctioning business since he was a child, and for the last 16 years, has served as the lead auctioneer at "Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction," where cars like a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake went for $5.5 million. Amy Assiter has made a name for herself in the business, too, by calling out chants for "Barrett-Jackson" She has also earned the titles of Oklahoma State Auction eers Association Rookie Champion and the Oklahoma State Reserve Champion under her auctioneer belt. For a day full of fun, which will also include live entertainment by bands like Big Engine, Straight from the Tap, Kettle of Fish and The DB9, head on over to the Florida Hot Rods and Hogs Car and Bike Show. The Punta Gorda Kiwanis Club will be accepting donations at the event to help support their service to the communities, like providing shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, mentoring for the disadvantaged, and care for the sick.

14 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 4 10, 2013 EVENTS THIS WEEKProgram Coordinator Wendy Aldridge is busy preparing for this Saturday's free holiday arts and craft show at the Englewood sports complex. "Last year we set up 50 tables, and over 60 craftspeople showed up. We can accom modate that and many more without any problem," explained Aldridge," and customers really enjoy shopping in our comfortable, air-conditioned 11,000 square foot gymna sium." Artists and craftspeople will be oering a wide array of items that include woodcarvings, wine bottle creations, hand designed greeting cards, photographs, bike bells, pineapple/ sea grass baskets, decoupage paper jewelry, and bamboo crafts. Families are encouraged to bring their children along, too, as a kid's craft zone will be set up in a side room where parents and tiny tots may assemble simple, holiday crafts. Materials will be supplied at no charge, but there will be no actual instruction. Miss Sharon's Dawg House, a concession trailer, will be parked outside at the complex entrance so hungry customers may enjoy hot dogs, chips, cold drinks, coee and doughnuts before or after the show. With over 136 acres, and dozens of outdoor amenities, The Englewood Sports Complex is a beautiful scenic area to visit at any time of the year, and parking is never a problem. Aldridge and her sta expect a "good mix" of vendors this year. George Newman, a skilled silversmith, will be selling glass jewelry wrapped in sterling silver wire and necklace/ earring sets made from sharks' teeth and trimmed with silver, a process he developed to make his work unique. Carolyn Troboski, a retired school admin istrator and her architect daughter, are a mother-daughter team. Carolyn features ber/textile and fabric wall art and quilted handbags, while her daughter creates jewelry using recycled parts from DVR players, printer rollers, and tomato cans. She oers 5 inch crab and scorpion coee table "critters" made from wire. Katrina Meyer, owner of Elegance in Wire Jewelry, has won many awards for her classic designs using 14k gold-lled wire and beads, all done by hand using just a few simple hand tools. Her Arrow Bracelet was featured in an international magazine. Shirley Hornagold has reserved two tables for this show. Her collection of soft velour ngertip towels, double dish towels and hand towel sets make beautiful and aordable gifts for any occasion. Buyers can choose from 100 adorable patterns and machine embroidered designs that include reindeer with Santa and Mr. and Mrs. Claus at the beach. Nature and wildlife photographer, Lynn Sarles, is oering a calendar and framed and matted scenes of local wildlife including alliga tors, bald eagles and herons. The Englewood Sports Complex is located at 1300 S. River Rd., in Englewood. The holiday arts and craft show takes place from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7. For more information go to www.scgov. net/ParksandRecreation or call Wendy Aldridge directly at 941-861-1980. Future shows are scheduled for Jan. 25 and March 15. A Garage Sale is being planned for Feb. 22.Holiday arts and crafts at Englewood sports complexBy CHRIS KOURAPISSUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTO PROVIDEDThe huge gymnasium at the Englewood sports complex was the venue for the 2012 arts and craft show where 60 artists/ craftspeople participated. Tucked into the serene and beautifully manicured setting, is the Boca Royale Golf & Country Club in south Sarasota County. This stately course opening originally in 1966 offers recently renovated greens and amenities set amongst the statuesque mature oak, cypress, and palm trees. Home to an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, the courseboasts lush surroundings and elegant homes of the gated community set a comfortable distance from the greens. Golfers enjoy the natural backdrop of the preserves while seeing otters, eagles, and S andhill C ranes in their environment. The semi-private Boca Royale Golf & Country Club is opento the public and offers newly renovated practice facilities with putting green, sand bunker, and a pitching and chipping area. U.S.G.A. golf professional Adrian Matern and assistant professional Scott Holcomb offer lessons to both members and the golfing public. Holcomb, who has been with Boca Royale since 2009, said the whole experience begins when golfers are welcomed in the parking lot by courteous staff and proceed to the pro shop and out to thebeautiful grounds. After enjoying the outdoors, golfers are invited i nside tothe Georgian style clubhouse for exceptional dining and picturesque views. Its not about hitting the drivers and its not about making par, said Holcomb. Its about enj oying all the other things along the way. Golfers have a choice of five tees ranging from the Diamond Tees, measuring 6,357 yards, to the Bronze Tees, measuring 4,891 yards. Matern, who qualified for the PGA in South Africa, says that although it is considered a short course, it has earned its reputation as a true local challenge. I t is truly a shot-makers layout, Matern said. With towering oaks hugging narrow fairways, our sharp doglegs and false carries demand the full attention of even the most skilled golfers. Memberships are available to non-residents of the Boca Royale community andcan be purchased for single, family, and seasonal terms.A variety of plans offer benefits including member-only golf tournaments, driving range rights, Bocce, clay tennis courts, and a private fitness center. Boca Royales clubhouse offers fine dining at the Fairway Dining Room and a casual dining experience at the 19 th Hole. Boca Royale Golf & Country Club is located at 1601 Englewood Road in Englewood.

December 4 10, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 15 AT THE THEATERThose who love mystery, romance and a huge dose of comedy will be thrilled with "A Christmas Cactus" at the Lemon Bay Play house. It's a "Dickens" of a play, and no doubt everyone will get the message that this play is as o-beat as it gets. For one thing, "A Christmas Cactus" by Eliot Byerrum is really by Ellen Byerrum, an attractive redhead, not unlike her main char acter, Cactus O'Riley. Why she chose to write using a man's name remains a mystery, but it really doesn't matter. The play, although not well-known, will keep audiences on their toes, as almost every line contains a double entendre. Bob LaSalle, who is both directing and acting in "Christmas Cactus," is up to the challenge. "This is a rst for me," said LaSalle, "and if I didn't have such a professional cast, it would be impossible to both direct and act at the same time. Playing the part of Ramon Ramirez, an illegal immigrant, seemed natural for me, as I often portray characters with foreign accents." LaSalle acted as Victor Velasco in "Barefoot in the Park" and as, Ivan, in "Drinking Alone." He's currently the president of the Lemon Bay Playhouse. Bill and Kim Fisackerly, husband and wife in real life, are perfectly cast. Bill, as Stuart Windsor, is a deputy district attorney and Cactus' love interest from years ago. Bill acted as Sky Masterson in "Guys and Dolls" in north Florida and as The Gentleman Caller in "The Glass Menagerie" at Lemon Bay Playhouse. He's also a full-time pastor at Gulf Cove Methodist Church in Port Charlotte. Kim, with her hair dyed bright red for this part, portrays the very smart but not conceited private investigator, Cactus O'Riley, who wants to make the world a better place. Kim works at Weight Watchers and is a Contem porary Worship Leader at Gulf Cove when not acting at Lemon Bay Playhouse or with The Charlotte Players. She loves sharing the stage with Bill, and played Laura Wingeld in "The Glass Menagerie." Lee Lawler, as Adelaide Booker, is the protective mother of Fred, Cactus' assistant, who believes she's attending a murder mystery party. Lawler, who has acted since college, loves performing at Lemon Bay Play house where she's appeared in many plays including "Post Mortem," "Enchanted April," "Night Watch" and "Angel Street." Rick Moore, who plays Fred, a wanna-be detective, was very funny as Teddy in "Arsenic and Old Lace" and as Eddie in "Born Yesterday." He's a retired paramedic who has acted in many productions in Leesburg and Clermont. Nick Nichols was David O. Selznick in "Don't Cry For Me Margaret Mitchell," and he's portrayed a host of cop roles at the Venice Theater and LBPH. He's fugitive Neville Smedley in "Cactus." Lemon Bay Playhouse is located at 96 W. Dearborn St., Englewood. Call 941-475-6756 or go to www.lemonbayplayhouse.com.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 4 10, 2013 EVENTS THIS WEEKThousands are expected to gather along the Intracoastal Waterway in Venice Saturday evening for the 25th annual Christmas Boat Parade. Possibly the biggest annual event in the city, the boat parade had been viewed by as many as 60,000 in past years, chairman John Osmulski said. Chairs and blankets marking choice viewing spots are already placed along the Intracoastal from the Albee Road Bridge to the parades terminus or turnaround point, the Venice Circus Bridge at the south end of the island part of the city. The highly decorated boats depart from the Albee Road bridge at 6 p.m. Saturday evening. They head south toward Snake Island and the Venice Jetty area. From there, the boats head into the inlet near Venice Yacht Club before returning to the Intracoastal to head south passing beneath the Hatchett Creek and Venice Avenue bridges. Both will remain in the up position during the parade, which could continue until 9 p.m. Some of the best viewing spots are on the east side of the waterway near the boat ramp and SCAT bus turnaround near E. Venice Avenue and also on the west side of the Intracoastal from Hatchett Creek to the Circus Bridge. Many viewers bring picnic baskets and dine while waiting for the rst boats to appear. To learn more about the parade and its route, or to sign up to enter your own boat, visit: VeniceChristmasBoatParade.com. The Freedom Boat Club is paying the entry fee for the rst 50 boats to enter the parade this year.Venice Christmas Boat Parades celebrates silver anniversaryBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR Tuesday, Dec. 10, Visani presents The 2 Heavy Crew on the lighter side.

December 4 10, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 17 ROAD TRIP SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOLNicknamed the Enigma, the Dali Museum on the waterfront in St. Petersburg was named one of the top buildings to see in your lifetime in AOL Travel News. Discover Dali in St. PeteBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITORSalvador Dali would appreciate his museum in St. Petersburg, especially the undulating ribbon of glass window that seems inspired by Buckminster Fullers geodesic domes of the s. Or perhaps it was inspired by some of the undulating designs by Dali himself those slithering clock faces perhaps. Located on the waterfront in down town St. Petersburg, the museum itself is as much a work of art as any of its contents. While Fullers original domes were comprised of hundreds of triangles that were generally equal in size, the Dalis three-dimensional ribbon of glass is composed of 1,062 unequal triangular glass panels. In preconstruction visits to the museum, I learned from the architect, Yann Weymouth of HOK architectural firm that, with the exception of its mate, no two sides of any one of the triangular shapes is the equal of any other. Whether viewed from inside or outside, the glass portion of the museum is worth a visit on its own. So is the spiral staircase that rises toward the peak of the glass dome with no visible lateral supports. Outside the glass is a garden terrace. Within is the museum shop and snack bar. Above are offices, exhibit space and a storage area designed to protect the collection from even a category five hurricane. When the collection was housed in the old Dali museum (also in St. Petersburg) the larger works had to be physically removed from the museum and trucked to a safe site some distance away no easy task. Now the large works are placed on the elevator and taken up to a storm-safe area that is flood proof, fireproof, windproof and more. Fortunately even in Florida, that does not happen too often. On all other days, visitors can see Americas largest collection of works by Salvador Dali. Beachwood, Ohio residents Reynolds and Eleanor Morse began collecting Dali in the early s after seeing the artists work displayed at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The collection began with a wedding present to them selves. Eventually they became friends of the artist and founded a private museum of his work in Beachwood, Ohio where they lived before giving the collection to St. Petersburg. Today the collection comprises about 100 oil paintings, more than 100 watercolors and drawings (including realistic botanical drawings), more than 1,000 graphics, photos, sculptures and other objects. Opening Jan. 18 will be Warhol: Art, Fame, Mortality, an exhibit of more than 100 works by Andy Warhol (on loan from the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh) who was somewhat of a kindred spirit to Dali. The new museum is at 1 Dali Blvd., St. Petersbug. Use Exit 175 from Interstate 275. Continue traveling straight ahead to the waterfront. The road becomes Dali Boulevard. The museum and parking will be on the left. For information call 727-823-3767, or visit: TheDali.org.The top of the freestanding circular staircase at the Dali Museum ends in the topmost area of the freeform geodesic dome of glass. This is said to be the only building of its kind in North America. Below: Salvador Dalis Santiago El Grande depicts St. James the Great, the patron saint of Spain, rising from the sea astride a white stallion and brandishing an oversized crucix.

Reserved seating tickets are $18 per person. Show starts at 7 p.m. and doors will open at 6 p.m. Order tickets at www.TheCultural Center.com/tickets, or call 941-625-4175, ext. 221.

The group is oering a meet and greet, merchandise and autographs following the show. Enjoy some of your favorite holiday classics and songs of yesteryear, including the groups smash hit, Just Like Romeo and Juliet, that was number one on the music charts in 1964. The song sold 4 million records in the U.S. and several million more overseas. The group performs songs by artists that they idolized as kids such as the Drifters, Flamingos, Coasters, Dion and the Belmonts, Platters, Tokens, Spaniels and more. According to promoter Cord Coslor, owner of Celebrity Direct Entertainment, The group, which still features some original members, is better than ever. The Reections toured with the Dick Clark Caravan of Stars in the s, and appeared on Clarks popular TV program, American Bandstand. According to the groups website, The Reections achieved success purely on the strength of their well-crafted harmonies and cool professionalism... The Reections are still heralded as one of the nest vocal groups of the s pop and doo-wop music era ...The Reections name is proudly displayed on the wall of the Cleveland Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Why do The Reections still like to sing? According to Gary Banovetz, We sing for the love of the doo-wop music that we grew up with in the mid s. We would sing wherever we could nd an echo a high school hallway, a street corner where we hung out, a drive-in restaurant to catch the attention of all the girls. Today, its the thrill of performing in theaters throughout the country. In addition to baritone singer, Banovetz, vocalists are Tony Micale, lead tenor; John Dean, bass; Joey Finazzo, rst tenor, who resides in Michigan, and Sal Prado, lead tenor who lives right here in Port Charlotte. Were pleased to be back at the Cultural Center. We love to watch the audiences faces light up when they hear songs that they grew up with and loved from a gone, but not forgotten, era, Banovetz said. We all have grandkids now, and in the dressing rooms of the theaters, were nicknamed the Medicare Boys because we compare our medications with other artists in the shows. Currently, the group travels to various venues from California to New York, and recently performed at a doo-wop review in Las Vegas.

The Sun Classified Page 14E/N/C/Vads.yoursun.netW ednesday, December 4, 2013 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonand G rahamNolan MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: One w eek ago, my 99-year-old dad tripped over a metal strip that connects carpet to tile in a brightly lit concession area at a local movie theater and broke his left hip. Surgery was performed the next day, and he has been suffering the side effects ever since. H ospital personnel told me he would need rehab after the fact, but no one mentioned the effects of anesthesia on the very elderly. He had throat stretching done twice in the past ve years and came out of that anesthesia the very same person w ho went under, so I was quite unprepared for his current state. He is suffering from delirium, and has not eaten since before he fell, as he refuses to swallow anything. He is on an IV started a few days ago. As an only child, I am tasked with nding the appropriate rehab/ nursing facility for when he is released. I have tried w ord-of-mouth and the M edicare site and have visited several locations. How do I choose the one that is right for him? He w as very independent previously, even drove his car to errands and lived at an independent-living r etirement home. I am heartsick over this entire situation and additionally stressed to make the right decision. L.D.H. ANSWER: This is indeed a difcult situation, and y our father is lucky to have a concerned child to help him. F irst of all, despite the broken hip and the complication of delirium, y our father has a good chance of getting back to his function, before breaking his hip. But both delirium and a fractured hip are serious. Delirium is common in the elderly during hospitalizations, and it can be devastating. P eople with post-surgery delirium can return to normal functioning, but it can take months. Recovery from physical injury, such as the hip fracture, is much slower during delirium. There are some resources to help you nd out more about rehab/nursing facilities. You already have looked at www.medicare. gov, and searched for N ursing Home Compare. This gives ratings based on the Medicare database. How ever, since what makes a nursing home isnt the bricks and mortar, but the people who work there, talking to the staff, as well as current or former patients, can give you more information. The booklet on Alzheimers disease gives a detailed presentation of this common illness. Reader s can obtain a copy by writ ing: Dr. Roach No. 903, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the r ecipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have two grandchildren who spike fevers and get sick a lot. How valuable are natural wellness formulas to build up their system and get them stronger? Their doctor has told them it will not help, but he isnt giving them anything to help their immune system get stronger. Any suggestions? K.L. ANSWER: The immune system gets stronger as kids age. The key to a healthy immune system rema ins a good diet, good exercise and sleep, and avoiding too much stress. Good hand hygiene is necessary for reducing exposure to bacteria and viruses. I am skeptical of the ability for supplements to improve the immune system. That being said, there are vitamins and trace minerals that are essential for the immune system to function at peak level. Most of us can get adequate amounts from a healthy diet. The supplements sold to boost the immune system generally are multivitamins with some additional unproven ingredients. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

Several of the recipes call for butter-avored granules. What are they, and where can I nd them? L. King in California B utter-avored granules are a powdered form of butter that is fat-free, gluten-free and good for those watching calories. The main ingredients are natural butter avor (processed into a dry form), maltodextrin (a natural carbohydrate that comes from corn) and salt. Y ou can nd them in most grocery stores in the baking or spice aisle. K eep the top sealed tightly, and once opened, store in the refrigerator. They are good to keep on hand, as they can be used for many foods. Heloise P .S.: I love them! I sometimes mix some with nonfat sour cream or yogurt to top a baked potato. Or I use them on steamed veggies, in brown rice with veggies and on hot oatmeal, among a few other things.Storing ketchupDear Readers: D id y ou know that ketchup has a high acid level and so it doesnt need to be r efrigerated? Depending on where you keep it and the temperature, though, its stability and quality can be affected. So what do you do? You can store ketchup in the pantry, but manufacturers recommend that you re frigerate it for the best avor and quality. The same with mustard: You dont have to refrigerate it, but it is recommended. HeloiseEating outDear Heloise: A year ago, I decided to really take care of myself. Healthie r food choices are now a part of my life. A lot of my meals are eaten in r estaurants. Here are some tips I use when eating out: Sauces and gravies on the side or not at all. Salad dressing on the side. Order food that is broiled, steamed or roasted. Anything fried is full of fat grams and calories. Red sauce instead of white (usually cream!) for pasta. Corn tortillas instead of our, and whole black beans instead of refried. Steamed rice instead of fried. With th ese simple changes, I still get to enjoy eating out with friends and family and know that Im eating as healthy as I can.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: I have been with my ance since 2006. We expected to be married in 2008, but my grandmother died a month before my wedding, and then he was arrested because of charges stemming from a sexual relationship hed had with a 17-year-old girl he had been counseling. S ince then, we have had a daughter, but through it all there has been cheating, drugs, jail, no job, and constant excuses about why our sex life no longer exists. We have also had physical altercations, which he was arrested for. I am no longer happy with this relationship. The only reason I stay is because of our children. Im only 33 and dont want to live my life in misery anymore, but I will sacrice my happiness for my children. I am confused and dont know what to do. Im just going through the motions in life. I work full time, coach my sons soccer team and am living with MS. He does help somewhat, but it would be better if he would get a job. My mother watches my kids while I am working and after they get out of school. He claims because he doesnt have a drivers license he cant get a job. Really? How many people in this world dont drive and still have a job? P lease give me some advice. I have reached my breaking point. DOING THE BEST I CAN DEAR DOING THE BEST Y OU CAN: Y ou say you are willing to sacrice your happiness with this loser for y our children. Why? You are not married to him, and he is emotionally neglectful, physically abusive and contributes nothing nancially. Admit to yourself that the romance has been a mistake, and as soon as its safe, get away from him. If he ever nds a job, the state will help you collect child support, but if he doesnt, yo u ll have one less mouth to feed. DEAR ABBY: My mom insists on including my ex-husband and his wife at our family gatherings. I have told her repeatedly that it makes me very uncomfortable, but she even included them in the gift exchange last Christmas. What should I do? Not go? My sister has already laid a guilt trip on me. Must I go and have Christmas with my ex like were one big happy family? (If we had been happy, we would not have gotten divorced.) What are your thoughts on this? LIVING IN DYSFUNCTION JUNCTION DEAR LIVING: If yo u and yo ur ex were married for a long time, I can see why your mother might consider him still part of the family and want to include him. Howev er, out of consideration for your feelings, it should be on a limited basis not every holiday. (Could she be trying to punish you because she blames you for the divorce?) Beca use it would make yo u uncomfortable and yo ur mother knows it, make plans to do something you would enjoy. And please, dont feel guilty if you do regardless of what your sister says. DEAR ABBY: W hat do yo u say to your only son who cant even call to tell yo u he is getting married? He posted it on Facebook, and I was notied via a text from my sister. Ou r relationship isnt the issue. He just doesnt seem to be able to use his phone for TALKING. Your thoughts? OUTSIDE THE LOOP IN OREGON DEAR OUTSIDE THE LOOP: Be cause your son seems oblivious to the fact that news of this kind should be conveyed to the immediate family personally rather than in a bulletin, EXPLAIN to him how it made you feel to receive the news the way you did. He ow es you an apology. Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 1 Corinthians 12:1 The Lord never intended for His children to be denied the gifts that He provided for them, nor for one generation of people to be preferred above another: God is no respecter of persons.
