Memory care center to join Jacaranda Trace


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Coming soon to Venice is
a new, state-of-the-art mem-
ory care center in which the
residents can be monitored via
interactive, online camera cov-
erage available to their family
members around the world.
The Cottages of Jacaranda
Trace been in the planning
stage for two years by Steven
Roskamp and Gregory
Patterson, principals of
Freedom Senior Management
Group and operators of
Jacaranda Trace. Construction
of the $4.4 million memory
care center project will start in
early January. Contractor Willis
Smith, of Sarasota, is expected
to complete the project by the
summer of 2014.
"It will be truly resident-cen-
tered care," said Gail Chase,


community director of The
Cottages, "a dedicated memory
care center specifically assist-
ing aging retirees suffering
from dementia and similar
problems."
Located on the Jacaranda
Trace campus at South
Tamiami Trail and Jacaranda
Boulevard in South Venice,
The Cottages will cover 3 acres. 'A.*
Surrounded by a secure gate II
system, it will provide a safe
and homelike environment
for people with memory care
issues or related impairments.
Two 18,000-square-foot
buildings will offer a cottage
environment. Within each
building will be 18 private
bedrooms, a kitchen, a living
room, private dining, a meeting
room and a spa. GRAPHIC COURTESY OF FREEDOM SENIOR MANAGEMENT GROUP

Santa came to town


SUN PHOTOS BYJUSTIN FENNELL
Santa is swarmed by kids at the annual bike giveaway organized by Rich Carroll at Epiphany Cathedral Saturday. More than 100 kids walked away with a new
bike and helmet.


With his sleigh grounded by the wind, Santa makes his entrance at the bike
giveaway via the Venice Police Department boat. Kids of all ages were eager to greet Santa at the bike giveaway Saturday.


By SUSAN ERWIN
CORRESPONDENT
Eve Thurston smiled as she
walked her brand-new, shiny
pink and purple bicycle out
of Epiphany Hall in Venice on
Saturday afternoon.
Holding a pink helmet in one
hand and a wrapped present
in the other, the 9-year-old
just experienced the magical


kindness of the Christmas
season.
"I really like it and I can't wait
to ride it," Eve said. "I feel real
lucky."
About 140 kids identified by
various organizations, includ-
ing the Salvation Army, Big
Brothers Big Sisters, Catholic
Charities and Center of Hope,
and several foster children,
received a new bike, a helmet


and a $10 Christmas gift.
Each one was also given the
choice of a grab bag from un-
der the tree. A lucky penny was
placed inside three of the bags.
The families of the children
who got a lucky penny would
be provided with a complete
Christmas dinner.
"It's a way to show that our
community cares," said Rich
Carroll, an organizer of the


event.
Carroll said this is the 16th
year the holiday event has
taken place. More than 2,800
bicycles have been given away
since its inception.
"And it's all done by dona-
tions," Carroll said. "Most of
these people are friends and
business associates in the
community."

Sunshine


issue


averted

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
The city of Venice is taking
an extreme measure to
make sure it doesn't appear
to commit a Sunshine Law
violation.
It's been the target of
numerous lawsuits by
Sunshine attorney Andrea
Mogensen ever since she
settled a case against the
city in 2009. That ended in
the payment of more than
$1 million in attorney fees to
various law firms.
"These people scare me
to death," said Council
Member Jeanette Gates at a
recent city council meeting.
"They're making a living on
this. They're ready to catch
us on anything."
On Tuesday, council put
its Agenda Committee
under the microscope after
City Attorney David Persson
expressed concern that he

Event fees

raised,

waived
By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
City leaders were left
scratching their heads this
week after learning the
special event fees for one
service organization seeking
a festival permit had more
than doubled over last year.
Joe Pokorney asked for
a waiver of $2,800, or half
of the city fees charged, for
the annual Venice-Nokomis
Rotary Fine Art and Craft
Festival that will take place
on the airport festival
grounds Jan. 17-19.
The fees cover such things
as police, fire and public
works department staffing,
equipment rental, solid
waste cleanup and an $1,800
festival grounds fee in all,

Arboretum takes Andrews' name


By FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

The arboretum at
West Blalock Park
is now the Monty
Andrews Arboretum.
It's named after the
person who came up
with the idea and who
inspires a group of
volunteers to spend
Thursday mornings
making sure the
grounds are kept in
perfect condition.
What started out as
an idea has grown into a
reality of about
100 trees, identified and
cared for by sponsors
and volunteers. The
arboretum also includes
bronze animals a
turtle, a manatee, a
panther and others.
JimWoods proposed
the idea of the name


change to City Council.
Mayor John Holic said,
"It was a no-brainer.
There was a unanimous
vote to change the
name."
Members of Venice
Area Beautification
Inc., the Venice Garden
Club and City Council
gathered for the official
ribbon-cutting by the
mayor and Andrews
at the entrance to the
Arboretum Saturday
evening. After the
ribbon-cutting, more
than 500 people moved
into the park for the
lighting of the trees.
On a signal, the
mayor and more than
100 children shouted,
"Merry Christmas!"
and all the trees in
the Arboretum were
lit at once, creating a
wonderland of lights.


SUN PHOTO BY FRAN VALENCIC
Venice Mayor John Holic, left, and Monty Andrews cut the
ribbon to dedicate the West Blalock Park Arboretum to
Andrews, who conceived the project and leads volunteers
who help maintain it.


Thanks to Monty
Andrews' vision, every-
one in Venice can take


a walk each evening
in a park dressed in
holiday cheer.

totaling $5,601.
Council granted the
waiver, primarily because
much of the proceeds of
the event go to charity, and
sought an explanation of
the higher fees from the
city manager.
City Manager Ed Lavallee
said it was council's direc-
tion over the past few years
to try to eliminate subsidies
and fee waivers when pos-
sible and come up with a
special events contract that
more accurately captured
costs incurred by the city.
What council apparently


WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013


didn't expect was a require-
ment to have a dedicated
fire engine or EMS am-
bulance at the ready on
festival grounds.
For that service alone
the city charges $1,599.
The presence of two
police officers accounts
for another $899 over the
three-day-event.
"We've gone a long ways
with dealing with this sub-
ject," said Council Member
Bob Daniels.
"(But when you have)
22 years of having the
event and never a fire, for
the city to impose $1,600
for city fire department to
be onsite ... I have a hard
time justifying that to my
constituents.


"I know what we're trying
to do. We've broken the
(subsidy) culture here. The
past culture generated a lot
of overtime for firefighters.
I think this is overdoing it."
Council Member
Jeanette Gates questioned
the need for onsite protec-
tion at all.
"I don't understand that
whole concept," Gates
said. "You can call them
if you need them. They
are only two minutes
down the road," she said,
referring to Station No.
1 next to city hall a mile
away.
Lavellee said he deferred
to the fire chief's request.
"He'd like to have best
practices (and) have it


onsite. It's an administrative
decision," Lavallee said.
The Devereaux-Kaiser
Antique Car Show last
year played a role in staff's
thinking. Inadequate
police presence and volun-
teer parking staff resulted
in 40-minute delays in and
out of the festival grounds
- something staff are
concerned could happen
again. The auto show has
since found a new venue.
Mayor John Holic took
issue with including the
fire department fee in the
special events agreement.
"Fire department staffing
is discretionary. We have to
bring police in," Holic said.
"If we're hitting discretion-
ary funding, then I think


we're doing it wrong."
Council Member Jim
Bennett pointed out that
granting Rotary's waiver
request has an indirect
benefit.
"If we do not charge
Rotary the full amount, we
are supporting that much
of they charities (that) they
support. Only a few citizens
would object," Bennett
said.
Not everyone agreed the
fees were too high.
"If we can justify $2,500
for Sun Fiesta, then (this)
$2,800 (to cover police and
fire protection) is certainly
justified," Council Member
Dave Sherman said.
"And it's not two minutes
away. It can be an hour


away when you look at
what we had (traffic jams)
with Kaiser. I think the
numbers are justified."
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo, a retired fire-
fighter, agreed keeping fire
department staff on hand
was a best practice.
"We've never had a heart
attack at that event, but
that's not a guarantee that
will we won't have one this
time or two years from
now. I support the rec-
ommendation ... to have
this added protection,"
Carlesimo said.
In the end, council voted
unanimously to grant the
partial fee waiver.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


Take to the streets on a Segway tour


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Maureen Kearns was
already thinking about
where to set up her
Segway tour business in
Florida when she learned
about Venice Police
Department Segway
patrols, and how officers
are often asked by the
public where they too can
ride a Segway.
Investigating online
and finding an absence of
Segway services in Venice,
she saw the opportunity
to base her transportable
Segway business in the
area. A few weeks ago
she arrived in Sarasota
County and parked her
recreation vehicle in
Nokomis.
Acquiring space at the
Seaboard Office Park,
she unloaded her 11
Segways from the trailer
she had towed from
Detroit and made plans
to launch SegwayVenice.
She is offering three
Segway tours daily, but
no rentals.


The morning tour,
designed for urbanites
and history buffs, ven-
tures into downtown
Venice, visiting the
shopping district, parks
and residential areas.
The lunchtime tour
is for those who want a
speedy ride along the
Legacy Trail, stopping
for a break at the Trail
General Store.
In the late afternoon
she offers a sunset tour
to the Venice Fishing Pier,
with a stop to take in the
sunset while enjoying
refreshments at Sharky's.
Riders must be at least
14 years old, and the
tour must be booked in
advance. Tours cost $55
to $65.
Riders watch an
eight-minute video pre-
sentation on the Segway
and are fitted with a
helmet.
Segways have no
gears; riders operate the
machines, which have a
cruising speed of 10 to
11 mph, by balance. Tour
participants must wear


closed-toe shoes and will
be given assistance in
mounting the machine in
the parking lot for a trial
run.
On each tour there is a
maximum of nine riders,
with a guide and rear
support rider. The tours
average two hours, and
riders generally stay on
sidewalks and bike paths,
Where necessary, riders
can be on the road if the
speed limit is 25 mph or
less.
Born in Detroit,
Kearns moved with her
family to Washington,
D.C., where she was
schooled, eventually
graduating from the
University of Maryland
with a degree in inte-
rior design. Preferring
administrative work,
she joined her dad,
a well-known patent
holder who invented the
intermittent windshield
wiper, suing Ford and
Chrysler over the device.
In 2005, she started a
nonprofit organization
in downtown Detroit,


offering both walking
and bus tours of the
city. Later, she started
historical bus tours and it
became a full-blown tour
company. She created the
first welcome center for
the city.
Partnering with a man
who had some Segways,
they introduced riding
tours. Upon dissolving
the partnership, she
acquired new machines
and kept the Segway
tours operating in sum-
mer, bringing them to
Florida during the winter
and setting up rentals in
various cities, including
Punta Gorda.
"Riding a Segway at
11 mph on the Legacy
Trail is very exhilarat-
ing experience," said
Kearns. "Taking the
Waterway Park along the
Intracoastal to the beach
is fun."
SegwayVenice is at 312
E. Venice Ave. under the
Venice Avenue Bridge.

Go shabby chic at Posh on the Avenue


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Susie and Mark Holt
have opened Posh on the
Avenue, 327 W. Venice
Ave.
"I have always had a
good clientele in Venice
and it is a little gem just
booming like crazy, so I
decided to re-open my
store," said Susie, who
formerly owned The Cat's
Meow on West Miami
Avenue.
There is a little bit of
everything for the home
in Posh on the Avenue,
from shabby chic, time-
worn, elegant furniture
to bedding and lighting,
including chandeliers.
They also sell Bella Notte
linens, duvets, ruffles and
sheets, furniture, costume
jewelry and clothing.
Schooled in Sarasota,
she worked on store
windows and furniture
displays for 10 years.
Twelve years ago she
opened The Cat's Meow,
operating it until decid-
ing with her husband,
a 20-year goldsmith, to
create a movie set store.
They will continue in


their Sarasota store, Posh
on Palm, which has both
retail and a cafe.
Store hours are Monday
through Saturday
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; call
941-786-1008.

Bank has moved
The Venice office of
Northern Trust Bank, for-
merly at 901 Venetia Bay
Blvd., closed last week
as part of the company's
consolidation. The local
trust and investment
team has transitioned to
the Sarasota office, which
now serves as the regional
headquarters.
The bank first opened in
Venice in an office on the
island in December 1985.

So far this holiday
season 1,835 presents
have been packaged by


48 volunteers and given

Christmas fun
It is not my usual
practice to recommend a
visit to Punta Gorda, but
this year the Christmas
decorations at Fisherman's
Village Marina & Pier are
so attractive. Go on Sunday
afternoon or Wednesday
evening to dance or
listen to WarrenWinkler
and Julie Trumbley of
Reconnections. See the
Punta Gorda store of
Captain's Landing of
Venice while you're there.

Get a home security survey, for safety's sake


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Holiday time is
prime time for villains,
who know your home
may be extra full of
things to steal. You
might be surprised
how easy you make it
for both the opportun-
ist and the profession-
al burglar to make you
a victim.
Seeing an open door,
knocking and getting
no response the
opportunist slips in,
steals a few items and
leaves. Rather than
storing presents in
plain sight under a tree
or about the house,
keep your blinds
drawn for privacy.
Organized and
planned burglaries are
the work of the profes-
sionals who will know
the contents of your
home and be prepared
to open a locked safe
and search drawers for
high-value items. Their
work may take hours,
and they will have it


planned long before they
enter the property.
Expert advice on
how to better secure
your home from all
thieves is available
from the Sarasota
County Sheriff's
Office, whose Crime
Prevention officers
will carry out a free
security survey of your
home or business
upon request.
You'll accompany an
officer for a 45-minute
property survey during
which conditions will
be noted that could
be the difference
between preventing or
having to endure the
trauma of a burglary,
according to Sgt. Neil
Scully of the Crime
Prevention Unit.
All access points are
addressed, including
the front door, win-
dows, sliding glass
doors and French
doors. Additional
safety features will be
suggested, whether an
alarm system, addi-
tional or replacement


locks and more.
Recommendations
of trusted locksmiths
or handymen will be
provided, assuming
you don't have the
skills to do any work
yourself.
Scully recommends
that every home have
an alarm system
and will give you the
knowledge needed to
shop for one.
Dummy alarm
boxes in a commercial
environment can be a
liability. Additionally,
a fake camera could
result in someone
believing there was
an expectation of
safety, creating legal
issues if there's a crime
committed.
Photographs of your
valuables are a major
help to police inves-
tigators in identifying
stolen items, Scully
said.
He also encourages
inscribing your driver's
license number on your
TV set, for instance. The
Crime Prevention Unit


has a program with
detailed information
about marking valu-
ables and keeping serial
numbers of computers
and other items.
Jewelry should be
kept in a safe or, better,
a safety deposit box.
That's is not conve-
nient, but it's the safest
choice.
If you use a safe at
home, it should not
be so small it could
be carried out of the
home by a burglar. All
safes should be an-
chored permanently.
When the holidays
are over and it's trash
collection day, be care-
ful when disposing of
the containers, Scully
said. Placing the box
from your new, large-
screen plasma TV
outside for collection
is telling the criminal
what is in your home.
Scully's advice is to
break up the box and
package it so people
cannot identify what it
contained.

Bond refinance could save

$1.2 million


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
City staff looking for ways
to save money have come
up with another refinancing
opportunity that could save
the city up to $1.2 million.
The Venice City Council
earlier this week approved
taking out a loan for up to
$6.6 million to pay off a series
of 2004 bonds approved by
voters in 2003. The bonds
paid for such things as a new
municipal pier, rehabilitating
the Venice Community Center,
beach renourishment and
the purchase of what would
become Maxine Barritt Park.
City Finance Director Jeff
Snyder said the immediate
saving would be $923,000 in
today's dollars. Extrapolated
out 10 years over the life of
the loan, that equates to an
estimated $1.2 million total
saving, he said.
"It's a 12.75 percent saving
on the general obligation
debt. You won't see that very
often," Snyder said. "Citizens
will see a benefit. The debt tax
rate will go down."
The refinance takes place
the first week in January 2014.
Council approved the


refinancing package with only
one comment.
"This is great," said Council
Member Kit McKeon.

Other action
Also at the Dec. 10 meeting,
council:
Approved a midnight
fireworks display at Sharky's
on the Pier on New Year's Eve.
Dissolved the BellaVenetia
Community Development
District and established the
Toscana Isles Community
Development District for a
Laurel Road subdivision being
constructed.
Approved two Venice
Municipal Airport projects
that are a precursor to reha-
bilitation of Runway 13-31,
which will take a safety zone
off of two dozen homes.
The projects authorized are
an environmental assessment of
the runway and a supplemental
Joint Participation Agreement
with the Department of
Transportation and city to make
other improvements to Runway
4-11, including building a taxi-
way and clearing an object-free
zone.

BrewHouse gets crafty with beer selections


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
When the season ended
last spring, customers
gathered for a weekend
of parties before the
doors finally closed at T.J.
Carney's Irish Pub at 231
W Venice Ave.
Owners Tom and Karyn
Carney saw new restau-
rants opening in Venice
and knew it was time for
a change.
"We realized we had to
become more updated,
more today and more
now," Karyn said. "We did
some research and knew
craft beers have become
quite popular. We wanted
to cater to people in a
more sedate fashion."
The Carneys have
always promoted family


dining, encouraging peo-
ple to bring their children
and their parents. They
decided there was a need
downtown for a 21st
century family sports
restaurant.
Plans were made for
their new BrewHouse
Sports Grill. The whole
interior of T.J. Carney's
was torn out and every-
thing rebuilt. Remodeling
included a spacious
restaurant, all new furni-
ture and restrooms.
The centerpiece is a
large, horseshoe-shaped
bar with 30 high bar
stools. Along the west
side are eight-, six- and
four-seat high-top dining
tables.
At the front by the
street windows are
booths, with additional


raised booths on the east
side. To the rear are tables
and chairs, while outside
under the balcony are
casual Gulf-style tables
and chairs. In total there
are 150 seats.
"Tom and I do not want
to cater to just one age
group or generation, and
I think the BrewHouse
speaks for itself." Karyn
said. "They know their
families are welcome.
Here it is light, fun and
family stuff."
Throughout the
restaurant are large-
screen TVs, mostly affixed
to the drop-down ceiling
on both the inside and
outside above the bar.
They said more TVs are
coming, to be attached
to the walls of the sports
bar. Wherever diners are

seated throughout the
BrewHouse, they will be
able to view TV screens.
An unusual new feature
is the tiled wall inside
the entrance, which Tom
Carney designed.
The bar has a lighted
display as a focal point,
with 24 on-tap craft beers
and numerous bottled
craft beers as well as
national brands, liquors
and sodas.
The spacious interior
leaves Carney the option
of offering entertainment
- not big bands, but a
DJ, duo or trio. At night
the TVs will play music
videos if there are no
games.


Available from 1 a.m.
to 2 a.m. every day, the
menu has undergone
some changes, but cus-
tomer favorites including
jambalaya and osso
buco have been retained.
New appetizers, salads,
a shrimp fondue and
firecracker shrimp have
been added.
BrewHouse burgers
include the spicy Jacked-
up Burger and Hangover
Burger. Pizzas and hot
dogs have been added,
along with desserts from
the Cheesecake Factory.
There is a kids' menu.
"We have hired
20 employees and I am
looking to add more


for the season," Karyn
said. "Already we are
getting good customer
feedback; they are happy
with the new restaurant
design. People who know
Carney's appreciate we
love this business and we
are sincere in our efforts
to please everyone."

SUDDEN JOLTS


If you have ever suffered a sudden jolt and impact, there may
be no noticeable symptoms for weeks or months. The reason for
this is that the spinal discs and ligaments, the tough connective
tissue that holds bones together, have no pain fibers. If muscle
spasms and inflammation around the nerve roots develop, this
may cause headaches, dizziness, neuralgia, and loss of neck
motion.
Sudden jolts and impacts are often associated with whiplash
injuries that result when an automobile is struck from behind.
When this happens, the person in the struck auto finds his body
thrust forward and his neck and head backward. In a major injury,
several thousand pounds of force may be absorbed by the cervical
or neck area of the spine. Similar though less severe injuries can
also result from falls and body contact sports.
If you are suffering from pain in the neck or any area of your
back, you may be able to benefit greatly from chiropractic
treatment.

OUR VIEW


Fighting the good fight on flood insurance


n the world of Washington poli-
tics, it is not surprising that both
U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan and Sen.
Bill Nelson failed in attempts recently
to postpone crippling hikes in flood
insurance rates for homeowners.
Buchanan, a Sarasota Republican,
believed he had the support to get a
vote on a proposal to at least delay
the rate increases for 15 months
while a more permanent solution was
agreed on. Surprisingly, Rep. Maxine
Waters, D-Calif, who had supported
that same idea just a few months ago,
would not climb aboard the bus.
Waters, ranking member of the
House Financial Services Committee,
was a chief architect of the bipartisan
Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance
Reform Act that ordered an end
to many premium subsidies for
property owners and a remapping


of communities that has resulted in
horror stories for homeowners in
flood-prone areas, or who live near
the beach.
In one extreme example, a Florida
couple who live in a house overlook-
ing Boca Ciega Bay found their annual
flood insurance premium would jump
from $4,300 to nearly $44,000. There
are a number of less extreme but very
high insurance rate hikes right here in
our communities.
The problem, according to lawmak-
ers who originally supported Waters'
bill, is that the Federal Emergency
Management Administration was
supposed to do an affordability
study before the new rates were
implemented.
That study is still two years away
but FEMA elected to charge the higher
rates in 2014.


Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., tried his
hand at passing a bill through the
Senate last week that would delay
the rate hikes, but he also met with
opposition that temporarily, at least,
killed the bill.
A spokesman for Buchanan said the
representative is in constant meetings
on the flood insurance issue. He said
Buchanan and others who support the
delay in rate hikes, like Alcee Hastings,
D-Fort Lauderdale and co-chair of the
Florida delegation, believe they have a
good bill. They remain optimistic some-
thing can be done after the holidays.
Rep. Tom Rooney's office said
Tuesday that the Florida Republican
has co-sponsored just about every
bill to stave off flood insurance hikes
that has been presented and that he,
among others, is highly supportive of
the bipartisan efforts.


We are perplexed that the House
members are having such a difficult
time. This is not a partisan issue.
The rate hikes affect homeowners
in California, South Carolina, North
Carolina, Colorado and all along the
Eastern Seaboard.
The sticking point, it seems, is
that some states in the more arid or
dry parts of the country believe they
are carrying the burden for people
who want to live near the water.
Lawmakers from those states are basi-
cally asking "What's in this for us?"
We are pleased that our representa-
tives in both the House and Senate are
working together, regardless of party
affiliation, to provide some relief to
homeowners.
We tip our hat to Buchanan, Nelson
and others who continue to champion
this fight.


Lists then and now


Christmas is right around
the corner and I have yet to
complete my shopping. It
seems like the older I get, the
longer I put it off each year.
Perhaps the kids' getting
older has something to do with
my procrastination. I have
made several attempts to get
this done but the truth is, I just
can't understand what it is the
kids want these days.
Sure, they can tell you all
that they want, but these
newfangled electronic things
can be daunting to shop for,
with countless others seeking
the same things you are.
I was looking at a child's
Christmas list from deep in
the past and was amazed at
how different that list was from
the list of kids today. That old
list was filled with wishes for
things needed to function in
the world, and at the very end
of the list the kid asked for a
toy and some candy if Santa
could spare those items.
I was completely astonished
at the difference between
that old list I found and the
ones I see today. I can only
imagine how tough it was to be
a parent and provide the fun
and excitement that the gifts
of our modern era provide our
youngsters now. It must have
been a tremendous task to
make Christmas special for the
youngsters. What do you think?
But perhaps the magic of
Christmas back then was not
as much about getting gifts
under a tree as much as it was
being thankful for what you
did have. Maybe it was about
spending time with those you
could not see as much as you
would like as they were always
busy just providing for the
people in their family. In a lot


of cases I imagine Christmas
was about having a different
menu on this special day.
The list from back then was
not about brand names, not
about keeping up with other
kids and not about how much
was being asked for. The list
was filled with need, humility
and, finally, hopes for some-
thing special.
It would more than likely
be a safe bet that if the kids
back then awoke to Christmas
morning and there was a toy,
they would cherish it year-
round and never take it for
granted.
We tend to think that life was
simpler back then, but I think
the real truth is life was less
complicated back then. Not for
one minute could we term life
as simpler then based on that
old Christmas list from long
ago; in fact, it feels like it was
downright tough.
However, as those kids grew
to be adults they had already
learned to value their posses-
sions and to ask for just enough
to get by. They had learned
that the most important part
of Christmas was family, and
sharing a meal. They learned
that hope was just as important
as the gift itself
Surprisingly, these lessons
learned were necessary to
lead our nation through some
pretty bleak times, including a
depression and two world wars.
Things happen for a reason.
Shifting back to our time, I
have to believe that these lists
of today are preparing our
world for the next phase.
As our kids start developing
into adults, what are the
lessons we have passed onto
them, and how will they affect
this planet years from now?
We don't get the luxury of ana-
lyzing a Christmas list a century
from now, but if I could venture
a guess the people in the future
would say life was sure a lot
simpler back then (now).
And as I walked past the
iPad Air, I noticed an old Atari
game system on the shelf and
I laughed aloud thinking, life
was a lot simpler back then.

Give and take. The U.S. is
certainly Israel's best friend,
but I sometimes question
whether Israel is a good friend
to the U.S. Israel has been
using money from the U.S.
for a settlement program.
These settlements are killing
the chance of an negotiated
peace with Palestinians. Mr.
Netanyahu stated that Israel
has a healthy economy. Our
economy, on the other hand, is
on the brink of disaster. Based
on these facts, it is strange that
we are still giving money to
Israel. It is stranger yet that as
a friend, Israel still accepts aid
from the U.S. Up to now, we
seem to have a perfect give-
and-take relationship with
Israel. We give Israel money
and they take it.
Chew on this. I'm calling
with a suggestion for the news-
paper that I thought would
be helpful to the readers, and
that is they have a restaurant
column. With over 70 restau-
rants in Venice, they've got
plenty to write about even if
they just took one restaurant
a week. They couldn't cover
them all in a year. With all the
management changes, up-
dates, location changes, phone
numbers just things that
would be helpful to people
here in Venice. I think that
would be a real plus for the
newspaper because something
everyone here does is eat out.
Snowbirds? I agree that
snowbirds are awful drivers.
I just wonder how all of them
got Florida license plates.
Commie killer. In response
to people who wrote in about
Dallas and the killing of John
E Kennedy: Be reminded that
President Kennedy was killed
by a left-wing Communist and
not the city of Dallas.
Pot partisan. I am a 64-year-
young woman. I've been on a
morphine pump that doctors
put me on and had beaucoup
narcotics put into my body.
I've been through two acci-
dental overdoses, and every


Let


em


Have It
day when I get up, there's pain.
Everywhere in my body, there's
pain. I am from California
and was introduced into
marijuana approximately 37
years ago. And because of the
use of marijuana, I was able
to discontinue the copious
amounts of narcotics that
were placed inside my body. I
was able to understand more
about how it operates in my
physical skeleton to keep me
from getting the pain. I wish
the state of Florida would open
up its eyes and let the people
in Florida have a release from
their pain from a simple plant
that grows from the ground. I
have heard Morgan & Morgan
is trying to push this issue with
the government. I have been
in pain for probably 41 years.
I don't remember anymore. I
wish the people in pain would
have a say too.
Bad timing. I'm calling
about a man who has worked
for a woman on the island
of Venice for over 20 years
as a landscaper and is being
told he will no longer do
this work. He's not young. At
Christmastime, I don't know
how they could possibly say
that they're going to eliminate


this position. It mystifies me.
Thanks for all the good work,
and love your newspaper.
Merry Christmas.
Let go. Venetians didn't
realize the value of our circus
and didn't fix the railroad in
order to keep it. It's time to
convince somebody that it's
time to let it go. They did a
really bad thing. Let's not do
that again. I don't want to take
a backseat to Sarasota. Why
should Sarasota get all the
glory?
Ulterior motive. About
Obamacare: I think it is work-
ing exactly as it was designed
to so that in the end people
would be clamoring for a sin-
gle-payer system. It's the goal
of this administration. I think
by screwing up Obamacare
the way they did, it was done
on purpose to make people
open-minded enough to say
we need a single-payer system.
This is a horror!
Down in the mouth. 'Tis
the season to be scammed. I
suggest a written estimate of
all your dental work before you
proceed. Personally, I'm not
too jolly.
Kudos. Many thanks and
praise for the people who
decorate West Blalock Park for
Christmas. It looks fantastic
and gets better every year.

Robust prospects seen in the crystal ball


Far from robust, our
recovery from the Great
Recession is fragile and
uncertain, but experience
suggests that Florida
is once more ready to
outpace the nation in
vigorous growth, based
on its attractive climate
and the opportunities
from growth based on the
baby boomer population
reaching retirement age.
Statistics suggest the
platform for growth is
here. But my conviction
is based on living with


the fits and starts of the
roller-coaster ride that
has been Florida's growth
since our family moved to
Miami Beach during the
Great Depression,
77 years ago.
It was 10 years after
the 1926 collapse of the
great Florida land boom.
Many a hopeful Yankee
had gone back home.
The state population had
slipped back to some-
thing over 1.5 million.
The landscape was
littered with weathered
signs on arches leading to
developments that never
got off the ground. In
the summertime, nearly
empty oceanfront hotels
on South Beach rented
rooms for a dollar a day.
Our father and two
of his brothers-in-law
started a Miami Beach


delivery business. They
had three Gulf-water-
green panel trucks with
gold lettering: Special
Delivery Inc.
Uncle Bob was the
salesman lining up
Lincoln Road specialty
stores to buy his delivery
service for their shop-
pers. Uncle Bucky was
the driver and Frederic,
our dad, kept the books
and helped line up the
packages in route delivery
order.
The business began
to build, but the second
summer was too slow to
sustain the enterprise.
Bank loans were not in
the realm of possibility.
They sold out to Ryder
Trucking for what they
owed on the panel trucks.
Uncle Bob found a job
selling Cadillacs in the


recovering Miami econo-
my. Frederic went to work
for a CPA and Bucky went
back to Hackensack, N.J.
Here and there new
stores filled empty lots on
Lincoln Road. FHA loans
encouraged new home
construction. With $500
borrowed from his father,
Frederic was able to buy
a lot and build a modest
new home in Surfside,
Fla.
On Collins Avenue,
along the oceanfront,
new apartments were
constructed. Air condi-
tioning, not yet in South
Beach hotels, began to
move beyond the movie
theaters and Burdines
department store. The
recovery was underway.
Florida continued to have
its economic ups and
downs, but the broad


trend has been to grow.
Today reminds me of
the Jimmy Carter "mal-
aise" of 1977. Florida was
recovering from one of its
periodic busts but did not
know it. Lucky for me, as
that is when we started
our business.
The weekly newspaper
in Venice and a com-
panion paper in New
Port Richey had been
losing money, making a
purchase possible. The
landlord for the Venice
Gondolier wanted his
building back. We were
able to buy a small
building and the land to
construct a new newspa-
per plant from a surveyor
who had gone bankrupt.
A friendly investor
put up the money to
construct the plant and
office. Inflation soon


boosted the land and
building value well
beyond the construc-
tion debt. Within nine
months, the business had
shifted from loss to profit.
Our Florida population
is more than 10 times the
size it was when our family
moved to Venice in 1977.
Already we are beginning
to see new retirees feed
our population growth.
Cautious businesses
are slow to staff to serve
the new arrivals. When
optimism replaces caution
in hiring to serve a growing
population, it will acceler-
ate our recovery.
It's great to be in
Florida.

HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALL




Bobcats' length overwhelms Venice


By ROB SMITH
SPORTS EDITOR

As Venice head boys
basketball coach James
Slaton admitted after
Tuesday night's 60-45
loss to North Port, it's
hard to simulate pressure
defenses that involve 6'5"
players in practice when
you don't have any of
your own.
Slaton and the Indians
realized that fact the hard
way during the first quar-
ter, when the Bobcats
stormed out to a 16-2
lead thanks to numerous
Venice turnovers that
turned into North Port
layups on the other end.
"They're just really
long," Slaton said.
"They're all 6'4", 6'5"
and quick. ...We knew it
was coming; they did it
to Charlotte. We didn't
handle it well early."
North Port head coach
Travis Slanger said he
decided to employ a 1-2-2
half-court trap to take
advantage of Venice's
diminutive lineup,
which consisted of five


guards Dom Marino,
Isaac Whitney, Langston
Provitt, John Cokley and
Jake MacFarlane.
"That was our game
plan," Slanger said. "Use
our length to trap and
create offense through
our defense."
Venice managed to cut
the deficit to 18-11 at the
end of the quarter thanks
to a 7-0 run in the final
15 seconds of the opening
period.
The Indians hung
tough for the rest of the
first half and cut their
deficit to 33-31 midway
through the third on Jake
MacFarlane's (10 points)
second three-pointer
of the night. But the
Bobcats' lead ballooned
back to 12 by the end
of the quarter, as the
Indians' shots from
the perimeter stopped
falling during the last four
minutes of the quarter.
"We had some wide
open looks, and just
didn't make them," Slaton
said. "Sometimes that
happens in basketball. We
don't have the size to be


able to pump it inside, so
we've got to rely on our
perimeter game. And we
just didn't quite make the
plays when we needed
to."
The Bobcats, mean-
while, featured balanced
scoring throughout
their starting lineup. Vic
Sinopoli and Brandon
Gonzales scored 13 points
apiece, with Teddy Deas
(11) and Justyn Miller (10)
contributing as well.
Venice wouldn't go
down without a fight, as
Marino's (team-high 11
points) three with a little
more than two minutes
remaining made it a
50-43 game. But North
Port senior Avery Francis
scored consecutive
buckets on a layup and a
dunk to put the game out
of reach.
Although he wasn't
pleased with the way his
team started the game,
Slaton said his team
can use it as a learning
experience, and added
that he was encouraged
byVenice's resilience after
digging such a deep hole

the bench for the Indians, who lost 60-45. scored 10 points.


early.
"Unfortunately when
you're down 16 against
a good team, you use all
that energy to get back,"
he said. "And we got back.
But then you're left with


no bullets in the barrel,
so to speak.
"That's a playoff-type
team with playoff-type
athletes. And our guys
know they can play with
them."

HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING



Kelly named most outstanding at Captain Archer


STAFF REPORT

Venice High junior
Zach Kelly's champion-
ship in the 126-pound
division highlighted a
solid performance by
the VHS wrestling team
at the Captain Archer
Memorial Tournament in
Charlotte Saturday.
The Indians finished
fifth overall in the
18-team field, behind
North Port, Palmetto
Ridge, Charlotte and
Riverdale.
Kelly, the lone Indian
to win his class, was one
of seven Indians who
placed. He appeared


destined for a runner-up
finish before a last-
second reversal against
Mariner's Keaton Koselke
earned Kelly the title.
Kelly was also voted
the tournament's most
outstanding wrestler
by the tournament's
coaches, an honor no
VHS wrestler had won
since Levi Duyn accom-
plished the feat in 2003.
Three Indians Brent
Smallwood (113), Bo
Williams (120) and CJ
Trammell (145) earned
second in their respective
classes. Smallwood beat
Lemon Bay's returning
state qualifier Jack Lipp


in the semifinals before
dropping a 5-3 decision
to North Port's Alejandro
Torres in the final.
Williams and Trammell
both fell to wrestlers
ranked in the top four
in their classes, the
former falling 4-0 to
Riverdale's Rich Riechelt
(No. 4 at 120 pounds)
while Palmetto Ridge's
Joey Nadotti (No. 3 at
145 pounds) took a 5-3
decision over Trammell.
Lincoln Yoder took
third place at 132 pounds,
while Bryce Balsinger
(138) and NickVischulis
(170) earned fourth place
in their classes.

local government that
utilized one.
In short, the city may
have been convening
a committee for years
that might have been
construed to fall under
the Sunshine Law. No one
ever challenged that.
"The problem is (the
city) regulation requires it
to be a Sunshine meet-
ing," said Persson. "I want
to be very clear. Calling
them a committee, that
is a red flag for some-
one concerned about
Sunshine Law. It's a huge
perception issue."
For as long as anyone
can remember, the
Venice mayor has gotten
together with the city
manager and city clerk
to finalize the agenda.
Under the Sunshine Law,
members of the same
decision-making commit-
tee cannot speak about
city business outside a


meeting for which public
notice is given.
The city Agenda
Committee is generically
referred to in the city
code, but there's no
language about how the
committee is formed or
how seats are designated.
Because it makes final
decisions albeit simple
ones like when and where
to hold council meetings,
as well as setting the
agenda it could be
construed to fall under
the state Sunshine law,
Persson said.
For example, deciding
to delay consideration of
a hot-button issue could
be construed as political
maneuvering.
The fix, Persson said,
is to either disband the
committee altogether and
give the task of setting
the agenda to the city
clerk, or formalize it as a
committee that falls "in
the Sunshine."
As it stands, any council
member can propose an
agenda item. It's been
the mayor's task to make


sure there's enough
background material
regarding the issue placed
in agenda packets for
council members to have
a meaningful discussion.
In the past, on occasion
there were complaints by
individual members who
felt they were unable to get
their items onto the agen-
da, but that hasn't been the
case more recently.
For the past month
the city held a dry run,
were it to do away with
the committee. Setting of
the council agenda was
placed in the hands of the
city clerk alone.
Council members said
they had no complaints.
Formalizing the
committee, on the other
hand, would require
public notice of meetings,
possibly causing further
delays in getting items


on the agenda. But it
would "bulletproof" the
agenda setting procedure,
Persson said.
Holic raised another
concern with formalizing
the committee. Because
the Sunshine Law requires
that members of the
same committee cannot
speak to each other about
an issue that is likely to
come before them in
the foreseeable future,
wouldn't that mean the
mayor would be unable to
speak to the city manager
and city clerk outside a
publicly noticed meeting?
"(That means) I cannot
talk to them about any-
thing that would come up
in a committee meeting,
which is everything,"
Holic said, making it
impossible to conduct
city business effectively.
Persson agreed.


What they finally
decided upon was to leave
the Agenda Committee
in place, but strip it of its
decision-making authori-
ty. With no decisions being
made, Persson said, the
committee would essen-
tially be considered a staff
meeting not subject to
the Sunshine Law.
That option keeps the
mayor in the loop and
in charge, something a


number of council mem-
bers said is important.
"This is the mayor's
party," said Council
Member Dave Sherman.
"He's running the show.
The time (and date) ... we
need to decide whether
we're going to run
(meetings) into the night.
I think those decisions
should be made by our
leader here ... the mayor."

Two women, one vision


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

It does not always take
a village. That is especial-
ly true when two women
with a common goal team
up.
Venice Art Center's
enhanced Garden Court
began as the vision of
two longtime commu-
nity benefactors Julia
Hyman and Kathi Cellura.
Located on the east


side of the building, the
area and its twin court-
yard were underused.
"Our main objective
was to have a courtyard
that could be used by
community organizations
and individuals for fund-
raising events, birthday
parties and bridal show-
ers," Hyman said. "We did
a lot of brainstorming."
That objective arose
after six months of plan-
ning and a major change

commissioned in 1999 by the Venice Foundation (today known
as Gulf Coast Community Foundation) for the Venice Art Center.


in the direction of the
project. With the plan in
place, Hyman and Cellura
finalized their budget,
ordered furniture and
arranged for artist Coleen
Henry to enhance the
area with trompe l'oeil
(fool the eye) painting.
"We were looking for
low maintenance so no
one has to come in and
water anything," Hyman
said.
VAC director Mary
Morris had the court-
yard area cleaned and
power-washed while
Hyman and Cellura
ordered umbrella tables,
umbrellas and chairs and
talked to Henry about her
part in the project.
Within days, Henry
created the look of ivy
climbing up the columns
that enhance the space.
To the casual observer,
it looks like real ivy but
meets the "does not need
watering" requirement.
Henry painted the
historical mural on the
back of the press building
of the Venice Gondolier
Sun and another large
mural at the Francis T.
Bourne Jacaranda Public
Library in Venice. The
historic mural can be
seen by anyone using
the Venetian Waterway
Park or cruising the
Intracoastal Waterway
in the area as well as by
anyone heading west over
the Venice Avenue Bridge.

Hyman were at the center .

progress of the project.
"From the beginning .........
this has been a joint
inspiration, which they
planned, designed and
implemented on their
own initiative," VAC board
chairman Ron Cairo said
at the dedication of the
space last month.
Hyman also arranged
to have one of her own
works of art, "Oceana,"
spruced up. "Oceana" is
a cast bronze sculpture
of two fish with roe. It

two women. .
A sign hanging above
the entrance features the
name "Garden Court" and
the words: "Gifted by Julia
Hyman and the Kathleen

"I feel it is important to
show what two women
can do," Cellura said.

Family in dire need of wheelchair van


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
Toy cars are on the
Christmas lists of many
6-year-olds, but what
Tianna Rivera and her
family need is a van. A
real one.
The Glenallen
Elementary School
first-grader has spinal
muscular atrophy a
form of muscular dystro-
phy that affects the mus-
cles used for crawling,
walking, head and neck
control and swallowing.
She can't walk or raise her
hands in the air.
When her family goes
out, Tianna is carried from
her motorized wheelchair
to a car seat. Her mom,
Alexandra, loads a man-
ual wheelchair into their
Toyota Corolla because
the 350-pound motorized
chair doesn't fit.
Alexandra has injured
her rotator cuff by lifting
her 79-pound daughter so
often.
"I push Tianna around
in her manual wheelchair
when we go to the store,"
she said. "If we had a
wheelchair-accessible
van, Tianna could roll
herself in and out of it.
She would be so inde-
pendent when we go to
places. I would love to
see what she would do
at Toys R Us if she were


free to go anywhere she
wanted."
To help make Tianna's
dream come true,
Alexandra launched a
website to tell her daugh-
ter's story and explain her
quest for the new van.
She also sells T-shirts with
Tianna's picture on them as
an ongoing fundraiser. She
asks people to post a photo
of them wearing the shirt.
"My husband, Victor,
designed a (Beast Mode)
T-shirt for himself, and so
many people asked him
if they could buy one that
we began selling them,"
Alexandra said. "So far,
we raised $6,400 toward
the van."
The family rented a
booth at the festival follow-
ing the Poinsettia Parade at
Dallas White Park.
Tianna has done a little
fundraising on her own to
help buy the van.
"One Sunday, we were
invited to the North Port
Moose Lodge for dinner,"
Alexandra sad. "After din-
ner, Tianna sang 'You are
my Sunshine' a cappella.
The crowd loved her and
donated $500 by passing
around a hat. They have
adopted her and call her
their daughter."
The lodge has been
helping the family when
possible. Recently, Tianna
and her sisters, Aiyana, 11,


and Destiny, 13, and baby
brother, Radanez, 4, were
invited for breakfast with
Santa. Santa gave Tianna
a guitar. Her brother
and sisters also received
presents. They had to walk
as Tianna rode in her chair
a mile each way to get to
the Moose lodge, including
crossing U.S. 41 twice
because Tianna's father
took the Toyota to work.
"Wheelchair vans are


so expensive," Alexandra
said. "It would probably
be like $20,000, which
is my goal. I am hoping
to raise enough money
to get one by April 1,
because Tianna has major
spinal surgery on April 9.
She has six doctors'
appointments leading up
to the surgery."
Tianna has to have
a six-hour operation
because she developed


scoliosis.
"Everyone who has SMA
gets scoliosis," Alexandra
said. "Her spine is curving
at 74 degrees. It's getting
to the point where her
organs are being pushed
to the side. It's just not
safe for her anymore. It
has to be done.
"Her disease keeps
progressing and getting
worse. We want to make


possible. I just don't have
many resources. I would
like to learn more about
what's out there to help
my daughter."
For more informa-
tion, call 941-416-3322.
Information is also online

fund at Chase Bank in
North Port.

Tianna Rivera holds her mother's hand as they leave the North Port Moose Lodge. Without a van, the family cannot travel together
unless they walk. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the lodge from their nearby home. They have to cross over U.S. 41 to get
home.

PGT donates to Children First


FROM CHILDREN FIRST

PGT Industries, the
nation's leading supplier
of impact-resistant
windows and doors, do-
nated $5,000 to Sarasota
County's Children First as
its year-end contribution
to the organization.
PGT embraced the local
nonprofit at the start of
2013 and has supported
its efforts throughout the


year with service work,
fundraising and the
December donation.
Earlier in the year,
35 PGT employees
spent a day completing
much-needed mainte-
nance and landscaping
projects at two Children
First facilities in Sarasota.
PGT Vice President Debbie
LaPinska organized the
work day event, which
included time to interact


with the children and staff.
More recently, PGT was a
sponsor of the "Flip-Flops
and Fashion" luncheon,
as well as the first annual
"Rockin' Lobster" dinner
and silent auction.
"We're proud to be able
to provide assistance to
such a wonderful orga-
nization," said LaPinska.
"Part of our community
outreach mission is
finding an organization


to assist and continuing
that support through the
year."
"We were thrilled to have
PGT's help this year," said
Philip Tavill, president and
CEO at Children First. "We
want to provide assistance
to as many children
as possible in Sarasota
County. Having business
support offsets some of
the cuts we've recently
experienced.


PGT is one of the larg-
est employers in Sarasota
County and a pioneer in
impact-resistant windows
and doors. Children First
is a private, charitable,
nonprofit organization
that serves Sarasota chil-
dren and their families
with the ultimate goal of
providing kindergarten
readiness.
Founded in 1961,
Children First offers


full-day preschool, infant
and toddler care, and
nutritional and health
care assistance to
low-income children ages
birth to 5 years old at 13
sites located throughout
Sarasota County.

Fellowship to teach integrated spirituality and psychiatry


FROM SAMARITAN
COUNSELING SERVICES

Samaritan Counseling
Services of the Gulf
Coast (SCSGC) and
the University of
South Florida Health
Department of Psychiatry
and Behavioral
Neurosciences announce
a new psychiatry fellow-
ship with a subspecialty
in spiritually integrated
treatment (SIT).
Academically spon-
sored by the USF Health
Morsani College of
Medicine, the year-long
SIT fellowship emphasiz-
es the healthy integration
of spirituality into the
traditional training in
psychiatry.
"It represents the addi-
tion of a new field in psy-
chiatry and an important
first step for Samaritan
and USF to more fully
integrate spirituality into
psychiatric training," said
David Wachtel, chairman
of SCSGC, an accredited
network partner of the
Samaritan Institute that
spearheaded and will
begin piloting the first SIT
fellowship next year.
"Over the years,
scientific literature
and our patients have
clearly demonstrated
the importance of faith
in the healing process,"
he said. "More than


82 percent of people
seeking counseling in
our centers indicate they
would like to talk about
spiritual concerns with
their counselor, yet only
a small fraction of clinical
training programs for
psychiatrists offer courses
in spirituality.
"Fortunately, with the
support of the Samaritan


Institute, USF Health and
community donors, we've
created a first-of-its-kind
fellowship, one that will
allow a board-eligible or
certified psychiatrist to
participate in a year-long
training experience that
combines not only classic
and contemporary theory
and research, but also
clinical wisdom from the


field of SIT."
SIT training is now of-
fered on a limited basis in
select training programs
across the country.
"The SIT fellowship
addresses the need for
more intensive training
for psychiatrists," said
Francisco Fernandez,
M.D., professor and chair
of USF Health Psychiatry.


"Psychiatry has a history
of ignoring, dismissing
spiritual experience as a
sign of emotional imbal-
ance, neurosis or psycho-
sis. Over the past 20 years,
this is changing."
As an example,
Fernandez cites that in
the American Psychiatric
Association's treatment
guidelines, inquiry


into spiritual life and
faith are welcomed
and respected. Also,
the new International
Classification of Diseases
includes a code for spiri-
tual or religious problems
and counseling.
"We are excited to part-
ner with the Samaritan

Ukrainian author's life a dream fulfilled


By AL HEMINGWAY
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Maria Myroslava
Tanczak-Dycio was born in
the tiny village of Rybnyky
in the western part of
Ukraine. It was an idyllic
setting, and she had a
happy childhood.
After her father and
mother had wed, he
became a Catholic priest,
which was permitted by
the Ukrainian Church. The
future looked promising.
All that happiness was
shattered on Sept. 1,1939,
as the Nazi Blitzkrieg
stormed across Poland,
conquering that country in
a mere six weeks. For the
next six years, she and her
family underwent countless
horrors under communism
and fascism, but managed
to survive the ordeal.
Now 91, Tanczak-Dycio,
and co-author Martha
Stevens-David, have collab-
orated on a new book titled
"My Life's Journey from
Ukraine to Maine." Her
compelling story details not
only the inhumanity of war,
but also her personal battle
to fulfill her lifelong dream
of becoming a doctor.
From 1939 to 1941,
Ukraine was ruled by
Russian communists.
Anyone who was edu-
cated or held a position
of authority, such as

Maria and her brother, Myron.
Tanczak-Dycio's father,
was kept under constant
surveillance by the KGB,
the Russian secret police.
"The Russians took
everything from us food,
gold, cows, horses and
chickens," she said. "They
killed many of my relatives
and friends. I had a cousin
who was deported to a
labor camp ... in Siberia.
The conditions there were
horrible."
Then, on June 22, 1941,
German dictator Adolf
Hitler broke the Non-
Aggression Pact he had
signed with Russian leader
Joseph Stalin and invaded
the Soviet Union. As the
Russians fled east, the full
scale of their anger was
unleashed upon the village.
Residents were taken
forcibly from their homes,

traces her journey through World War II, moving to the U.S., and
achieving her dream of becoming a doctor.


BOOK SIGNING
Dr. Maria Myroslava Tanczak-
Dycio will have a book-signing
for her autobiography, "My
Life's Journey from Ukraine to
Maine;'at 11:30 a.m. Sunday
at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic
Church, 1078 N. Biscayne Drive
(at Price Boulevard), North Port.
All are invited.
never to be seen again.
Tanczak-Dycio's father had
to go into hiding to prevent
being captured.
In the city of Lviv,
another cousin who was
also a priest was taken into
custody and murdered, as
an example for others.
"When the German
soldiers arrived, we thought
it would be better," she
said. "They were nice at
first. Then they went to
the Eastern Front to fight.
Then the Gestapo (German
secret police) arrived. They
were as bad as the KGB."
As the fighting on the
Eastern Front continued,
Tanczak-Dycio said, the
Gestapo would arrive
in trucks, surround the
schools and drag the
young boys out to join
the German Army. Older
people were shipped
off to cities in Germany
such as Berlin, Hamburg
and Nuremburg, where
they cleaned the streets
because of the shortage of
manpower.
"Hitler was fighting on
too many fronts," she said.
"A lot of the men were
dying or were wounded."
Tanczak-Dycio said the
German occupation force
discriminated against the
Ukrainians by not allowing
them to eat in German
restaurants or use German
bathrooms, and forcing
them to ride in the back of
the trolley.
"We were segregated,
like the African-Americans
were in this country," she
said.
While staying with her
uncle, they learned that
the Russian Army was
driving the Germans from
Stalingrad and pushing

west. Her family decided to
load whatever belongings
they could and make their
way south through the
Carpathian Mountains to
Slovakia.
For three days and nights
they traveled, sleeping
in the grass and moving
to avoid being shot at
by the Czech or Polish
Underground. When
they reached the village
of Margetsany, she was
reunited with her parents.
They also had fled, fearing
Russian reprisals.
That serenity was broken
when the Russians began
closing in on the village.
Early one morning, the
family left through an open
window and were homeless
once again. Crammed into
cattle cars, they traveled
to Strashof, a labor camp
that was bombed by
American aircraft nearly
every night. Ravaged by
bed bugs and lice, and with
only bread and margarine
and foul-smelling soup to
eat, they somehow pulled
through.
"It was a living hell," she


said.
One day, Tanczak-Dycio
watched as a Gestapo
prison guard stomped out
a fire that was warming up
a can of milk for a young
woman's baby.
"The woman began
to cry, telling him that
her baby would starve,"
she said. "He turned and
walked away."
After months of moving
from refugee camp to
refugee camp, and dodg-
ing the nightly bombing
missions, Tanczak-Dycio
and her family made it
to Erlangen, Germany,
whenWorldWar II ended
in May 1945. Through
the assistance of the U.S.
Embassy, she was able to
enroll in the university to
begin her medical studies.
Although she was treated
like a second-class citizen
because of her Ukrainian
heritage, she persevered
and graduated in 1949.
During that time, she
met and married another
medical student, George
Dycio, and, on Oct. 21,
1950, exactly one year after


Maria Myroslava Tanczak-
Dycio's medical school
document.
she was married, the couple
came to the United States.
They reunited with her
parents, who had relocated
to the U.S. months earlier.
She went to work in
a dress factory, earning
50 cents an hour, and
attended night school to
learn English. Once again,
however, Tanczak-Dycio
was met with discrimina-
tion when she could not get
accepted to a hospital.
"I put in 20 applications,"
she said. "They didn't want
me because I was a wom-
an. As bad as the Germans
were, 30 (percent) to 40
percent of my medical class
there were women."
Finally, Tanczak-Dycio
and her husband were
accepted at Mercy Hospital
in Canton, Ohio.
In 1957, the couple
moved to Lewiston, Maine,
where he eventually set
up a private practice.
She worked at St. Mary's
Hospital and later Central
Maine Medical Center until
her retirement in 1997 as
a doctor of anesthesiology.
She returned to school
and took art classes and
continues to paint today.
After her husband's death,
she eventually remarried
and moved to North Port.
Despite all her achieve-
ments, there is one that
tops Tanczak-Dycio's list:
American citizenship.
"I want to tell my
readers," she wrote in her
book, "that you don't really
understand the horrors of
war until you have lived
through it."

FROM VENICE THEATRE

Venice Theatre's
Generations Series is

local school groups.


"'A Christmas Carol' is
one of my favorite things
to do each season," said
Director Murray Chase.
"Young people return
each year, playing new
roles as they get older.
College students plan
their Christmas breaks
around the show. And
entire families work
together in the cast and
crew. It's a wonderful
tradition that's been a
part of our theatre for
almost 15 years."
This is Chase's 12th
year as director of "A


Christmas Carol." Music
Director, Michelle
Kasanofsky, has also been
involved with the produc-
tion for 12 years.
Other long-time

Christmas Past); Alyssa
Hunek, who has played
various roles over the

choreographer.
New company mem-
bers join the cast each
year as well, including
this season's Tiny Tim,
Reef Krug. A full cast list
and production team can

com.
Eric Watters, who is

energy and enthusiasm is
contagious."

'Gin Game' launches fundraiser at theater


FROM LEMON BAY PLAYHOUSE

"The Gin Game" will
be staged at Lemon
Bay Playhouse, 96W
Dearborn St., Englewood,
Saturday, Jan. 18,
7:30 p.m. and Sunday,
Jan. 19, 2 p.m., to kick off
a fundraiser to help pay
off the mortgage on the
theater's Annex building.
Veteran actors Rita
Corn and Jack Rabito
have generously volun-
teered to produce and
perform the play, which
includes mature lan-
guage. The entire pro-
ceeds from these two per-
formances will go to the
campaign to pay off the
mortgage. Tickets are $18
each and are available
through the box office
941-475-6756 or online
at LemonBayPlayhouse.
cornm.
The Playhouse is deeply
indebted to these two fine


actors for their generosity
in mounting these two
benefit performances.

Fundraiser
Lemon Bay Playhouse,
a nonprofit community
theater serving the
Englewood area for 27
years, is launching the
fundraising campaign
to help pay off the
mortgage on the Annex
building. This is the
building that the play-
house has been leasing
next door at
80 W. Dearborn St.
This space has been in-
valuable for auditions and
rehearsals for upcoming
shows while the current
play is in production in
the theater building. It
also provides additional
space for classes to meet
and storage for costumes
and furniture.
Because the Playhouse
has a history of not


carrying a large amount
of debt and works hard
to eliminate any debt or
loans that it incurs as
quickly as possible, plans
are underway to have a
mini-capital campaign to
pay off the mortgage in
two years.
On April 11, 2013,
papers were signed for
purchasing the Annex.
A 10-year mortgage was
taken on the property for
$85,000. The theater was
able to take advantage of
the low cost of borrowing
and use its own capital
to purchase the building.
The monthly mortgage
payment is lower than
the monthly rental fee
was.
Paying off this mort-
gage over the next two
years will allow the
theater to continue to
keep ticket prices low,
upgrade its present
facilities and plan for
further expansion as


outlined in the strategic
plan developed in 2012.
The presentation
of "The Gin Game" is
the first phase of the
campaign. The Pulitzer
Prize-winning play
by D.L.
Coburn is
a dramatic [
comedy
intended
for mature
audiences.
Fonsia
and
Weller,
two resi-
dents in
a nursing
home,
develop a
friendship
while
playing
gin. Fonsia
is new to
the game;
Weller is
an expert. Rita Corn and J
Fonsia's card game at a


beginner's luck drives
Weller to exasperation.
A confrontation ensues.
During the continual
shuffling and playing of
cards, they slowly come
to grips with what is left


of their lives in their old
age.

in conjunction with the
center's SeaVenice art
project. The fiberglass
turtles and dolphins
placed throughout Venice
are the stars of that
project.
The sea creatures will
remain in place until
April 2014 when they
will be sold at auction at
Venice Yacht Club, with
proceeds going to the VAC.
A similar project, "Pigs
in Paradise," raised more
than $250,000 for the
center in 2005. "Elvis
Piggsley" sold for $7,800
at auction and now
resides in Ohio. Another
buyer paid an average
of $3,000 each for five
or six pigs he purchased
for a summer camp in
Pennsylvania.
Art center members
and friends hope the
current Sea Venice project
will be as successful.
Although a smaller
project, the Garden
Courtyard is intended
to be an ongoing source
of revenue for VAC. In
the works is a Garden
Courtyard brochure
Morris is designing. It
will include rental fees
and other information for
those groups and individ-
uals who hope to use the
space.
"These two ladies
displayed a bond working
together as one and
produced a courtyard
which the Venice Art
Center can certainly be
proud of," Cairo said.
"Both women have been

The bidding:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
Pass Pass 14, ?
What call would you make?

A In days of yore, you might have
been drawn and quartered if you
overcalled on a four-card suit.
Experts today will overcall with a
four-card suit, as long as the suit is
excellent and the hand is reasonably
good. Bid one heart.

Q 2 North-South vulnerable, as
South, you hold:

*J974 2 KJ54 0 Q987# A

The bidding:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 10 ?
What call would you make?

A Double. This is a negative dou-
ble promising values worth compet-
ing at this level, but with no clear
bid. It suggests length in the unbid
suits. Should this find a major-suit
fit, great! You are strong enough to
continue with a no trump bid if that
fails.

Q 3 East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

The bidding:

Pass 24 Pass Pass

What call would you make?

A Partner may have quite a good
hand with length in spades. Double!
You arc protected by your status as a
passed hand. Partner can't play you
for too much.


Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

6J5v AJ3203 AK 1063,4Q6

As dealer, what is your opening bid?

A Should you open one diamond
and partner respond one spade, you
will have no good re-bid not
enough for two hearts and too much
for one no trump. Avoid this and open
one no trump now. You are a bit off-
shape, but it is the lesser evil.

Q 5 North-South vulnerable, as
South, you hold:

* 10 7 5 3 2 v 532 o KJ 7 2*.I

The bidding:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1V 2# ?
What call would you make?

A Your hand re-evaluates to about
seven points in support of hearts. Bid
two hearts. With a better hand, you
might start with a negative double
and support hearts later, but this hand
is only worth one bid. Raise now!

Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

*QJ92vJ6520 AK7*J9

As dealer, what call would you
make?

A A hand with this distribution is
usually opened one diamond. This is
an awkward opening and sometimes
leads to problems later in the auction.
Is this hand really worth it? Pass.

Foundation gives $243,183 to teachers


FROM EDUCATION FOUNDATION

More than 350 teach-
ers, donors, volunteers
and school district
leaders celebrated the
24th annual Classroom
Grant Awards Dec. 4 at
Michael's on East.
Susan Scott and Cheryl
Gordon of the Education
Foundation of Sarasota
County announced a new
round of grants totaling
$169,670 for 193 projects
developed by teachers
from 41 public schools in
the district.
Added to the 51 grants
totaling $73,513 pre-
sented earlier this fall,
teachers have received a
record $243,183 to date
in Education Foundation
Edge of Excellence and
Exploration Grants. Each
grant will provide high
quality enrichment and
experiential learning op-
portunities for students
during the 2013-2014
school year.
Roxie Jerde, presi-
dent and CEO of the
Community Foundation
of Sarasota County,
awarded an additional
19 Exploration Grants
to teachers, totaling an
extra $51,688 from her
organization.
School Board chair
Jane Goodwin welcomed
the audience.
"In Sarasota, we have
all the ingredients for
educational magic," she
said. "Motivated students,
involved parents, talent-
ed and creative teachers


and an enormously
supportive community
with a shared obsession
with excellence."
Argosy University
sponsored the reception
and presented the Argosy
Principal's Award for the
sixth year. The award
honors the principal
whose school submitted
the most grant proposals
by faculty size. Dr. Sandra
Wise, President of Argosy
University-Sarasota,
presented a $500 check
to Cranberry Elementary
principal Linda McCloud
from North Port.
Rotary Club of Sarasota
President Dr. Tim Herring
closed the ceremonies
with a drawing. Toledo
Blade Elementary School's
Sharon Hermanson
received the Rotary Club
of Sarasota's Jim & Jean
Henry Teacher's Award,
a no-strings cash gift of
$500.
Gordon, Education
Foundation board
chairman, recognized
Beverly Koski as a past
board chair and one
of the founders of the
group's classroom grant
programs.
In 1990, the foundation
awarded $6,000 in mini-
grants to 13 teachers.
Since then, the Education
Foundation has awarded
more than $2,974,000
for 4,593 projects de-
signed by teachers. The
most effective projects
are replicated by other
educators over the years,
expanding the impact of

each grant.
All Sarasota County
K-12 public school
teachers are eligible to
apply for awards of up to
$500 through the Edge
of Excellence Classroom
Grants program. These
funds go beyond what
tax dollars provide,
giving teachers the tools,
materials and supplies
they need to develop
innovative enrichment
projects and try new
teaching techniques.
The Education
Foundation raises the
money, sponsors work-
shops for teachers and
organizes community
grant-reading sessions.
Grant readings give citi-
zens a connection to area
classrooms and a chance
to learn more about
trends and challenges in
teaching. Northern Trust
hosted two days of grant
readings at its Venice
and Sarasota branches in
October.
Teachers can also
apply for larger awards
through the Education
Foundation's Exploration
Grants program.
Area arts, history and
science organizations
have developed edu-
cational experiences
tied to state academic
standards and curricu-
lum plans. These "ex-
plorations" are posted
on a public website,
EdExploreSRQ.com,
launched in 2011 by
Sarasota County Schools
and The Patterson


Foundation's Cultural
Connections initiative.
Teachers use the
website to find learning
experiences field
trips, performances,
video-conferencing -
that meet state instruc-
tional requirements.
Exploration Grants
help teachers make these
experiences possible for
students. Grants of up
to $5,000 are awarded
to teachers who develop
the most compelling
proposals.
The Patterson
Foundation continues to
match new or increased
gifts for Exploration
Grants, up to a total of
$500,000. Half of the
match will fund current
grants. The other half is
invested in an endow-
ment to sustain these
grants in the future.
Funding for Edge
of Excellence and
Exploration Grants is
provided by individ-
uals, families, civic
groups, businesses and
foundations.
Producing Sponsors
of Exploration Grants
include Achieva Credit
Union, which donated
$25,000 from its 2012
Reindeer Trot Run/Walk.
At opening ceremonies
for its 2013 Reindeer
Trot Dec.7, credit union
managers recognized 17
teachers who won this
year's Achieva Exploration
Grants.

"Civics 101 is one of our
most popular programs
and frequently has a
waiting list," said coordi-
nator Kaitlyn Johnston.
"In addition to learning
how and why the county
provides services to the
community, participants
make new friendships that
last beyond the classes."
Staff members from
county departments give
presentations, conduct
tours of county facilities
and answer questions.
New activities this spring
include a guided tour of
Phillippi Estate Park as well
as the Sarasota County jail.


Sarasota County has of-
fered Civics 101 since 2000;
sessions are held twice a
year. The most recent grad-
uating class was the largest
in the program's history,
with 28 graduates.
The spring session of
Civics 101 begins Jan. 23,
with classes taking place
in various locations
around the county every
Thursday morning 9-noon.
Participation is free. New
residents, business profes-
sionals, retirees and teens
are encouraged to apply
for the 10-week program.
Twenty-five applicants are
accepted on a first-come,
first-served basis.

Veronica Meurs carefully prints
photos of Santa at the annual
Sertoma breakfast with Santa at the
YMCA. It was the biggest turnout
ever for the event, with several
hundred families standing in line
waiting for their big moment with
Santa.


George Gregorio chats with Santa

Santa liked the hat.

as Frank and Dale Pliska, were celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary.

It took
60 yards of
tulle to turn
Rita Ramsey
into this
whimsical
character.


Mark Leduc and his son, Jonathan, pose for the camera. About 500 families came to the
Sertoma breakfast with Santa at the YMCA.


Santa, Sertoma make a great team


Members of the
Sertoma Club of Venice
made spirits bright
for about 500 families,
serving breakfast and
giving everyone a chance
for photos with Santa at
the YMCA. Mrs. Claus,
Lori Kowalski, added to


the sparkle and gave each
child a stuffed animal
from the Wells Fargo toy
shop.
Bill Wilson took pho-
tos and a dedicated crew
kept four printers busy
processing them.
A nice surprise at the
breakfast was a visit by
longtime former club
member Mick Gardner,
who now lives in the
Carolinas. Mick started
the breakfasts with Santa
many years ago, as well
as a Christmas Card Lane
at the YMCA that ran its
course.
Every Sertoma member
who participated in this
event earned his or her


wings for doing yeoman's
work.
Santa, aka Richard
Appell, gets an added
ho, ho, ho for cheerfully
greeting several hundred
boys and girls.

bers of the Interact Club
taught everyone a few
new dances. Every person
connected with this party
proved it's the season to
be jolly.

Hanukkah
Centennial Park in
downtown Venice was the
spot for celebrating the
eighth day of Hanukkah.
About 100 people from
Chabad of Venice &
North Port and their


friends were on hand
and enjoyed matzo ball
soup and delicious latkes.
There was plenty of
music and dancing and a
proclamation by Venice
Mayor John Holic.

Hanukkah to our Jewish
friends.

Some of our best
The special people
of this week are the
volunteers from Royal
Coachman who gave a
sensational Christmas
party for Big Brothers
and Big Sisters. Everyone
there was singing, danc-
ing, eating and jingling all


the way.
All week the group was
baking and getting gifts
ready for the afternoon.
They came early to set
things up in their rec
hall and decorate. They
served food, cleaned up
and packaged leftover
cookies in small bags for
takeout.
Outside, more volun-
teers helped with traffic
control and parking.
Everyone remembered
this is the best time of the
year.
The crew from the
Royal Coachman are
among the people who
make Venice a great place
to live.

This family owned pizzeria is a place where
"everybody helps.:'
"My husband, Bobby, my son, Robert, and two
of my grandsons love working at the restaurant,
and each has a special gift/Dawn Marie Lee said.
"At thirteen, Robert began learning every aspect of
the business. We now call him our 'charge man' as
he does everything from hand tossing pizza crust,
cooking Italian dishes, and directing the overall
operation of the restaurant."
Robert's dad, Bobby, specializes in creating rich
marinara, carbonara and Alfredo sauces, toppings
for an assortment of pasta dishes featured on their
menu. Dawn Marie's specialty is making homemade


manicotti pasta and lasagna noodles.
Specials at Bobarino's include two slices of pizza
and a soda for luch at $5, and 2-for-1 dinner with a
choice of pasta or pizza, wine, salad and dessert for

restaurant also offers outdoor seating that is both
attractive and dog-friendly.
"At night our outdoor patio becomes a winter
wonderland during the holiday season," said Dawn
Marie, whose hand-painted murals adorn the outside
walls of their historic building.

PHOTOS PROVIDED BY
THE ICEHOUSE PUB
The new outdoor patio
added about 60 more
seats to the Icehouse Pub.


What would an English
pub be without dart-
boards? There are lots of
them at the Icehouse Pub.


ce House Pub offers good food, drinks and darts


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Sometimes, what seems like the worst thing that
could happen is actually a blessing in disguise.
When Hurricane Charley emerged from the Gulf
of Mexico in 2004, Charlotte County took a direct
hit and so did John and Pauline Berry. But out of
the rubble of that monster storm, theyfound a new
hobby, and subsequently, a new livelihood.
"After the hurricane, we lost our house," John
Berry said. "Then someone brought us this mahogany
dartboard, and I had never played. I got in this (dart)
league in Cape Coral, and my wife nagged me for a
year and finally said, 'Why don't you open up a pub
and put a dartboard in it?'"
In February of 2008, that is just what the Berrys did.
Ironically, the building they chose for their pub
had suffered during the hurricane, too. The 1890s
structure, which had been used as an ice plant for
Charlotte County's fishing industry, had lost its roof
and one of the walls in the high winds of the storm.
But the building's owners decided to rebuild the
historic structure instead of tearing it down.
With its high ceilings and exposed brick walls, the


Berrys thought it was the perfect spot for their new
place, The Icehouse Pub.
"The whole concept is an authentic British pub,"
Berry said. "It was set up to be a place to come and
play darts, drink beer and eat really good food."
Though there are ten regulation-sized dartboards
and several leagues who regularly play there, you do
not have to be a dart player to enjoy this pub. Darts are
played in a separate room from the rest of the casual
restaurant/bar and you can even sit out on the patio
and watch sports on the big screen, if you choose.
There are more than 26 beers on tap, plenty of
bottled beers and wine bythe glass or the bottle. But
Berry says that one of the main attractions at this
popular pub is the food.
"On the British side of the menu, the biggest seller
is the fish and chips, which we can also do grilled or
blackened," he said. "On the American side, we have won
the best cheeseburger five years in a row in Charlotte
County. We have a small menu, we make everything
from scratch and we make it consistently good."
And as long-time residents of the Punta Gorda
community, who consider themselves fortunate to
have been able to come back from a devastating


situation, the Berrys also make a conscious effort to
give back whenever possible. Last weekend, they held
a large dart tournament which was a charity event
for Toys for Tots. The pub was a drop-off point for
donations and Marines were onsite to collect them.
The Icehouse Pub is at 408 Tamiami Trail North, in


downtown Punta Gorda, and is open from 11 a.m. to
2 a.m. Mondaythrough Saturday, and from noon to
12 a.m Sunday. For information about charity events,
dart happenings or musical entertainment, visit the
Facebook page or the website at www.theice
housepub.com, or call 941-575-0866.

Christmas Town grows bigger each

Given the park's ice shows, it

Sto take advantage of all the
snow and ice to create Snow

from my Busch Gardens insid-

more than the output of dozens

special present for Busch Gardens zookeepers as well as
for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums'(AZA) Species

interested in the blood-pressure raising coasters, many
Busch regulars go there for the zoo which has been a
mainstay since the park's beginning.

Pele may be busy doing her maternal duty and out

subject to study at Busch Gardens since 2004. Busch
Gardens also supports study of the species in the
more remote Nouabale-Ndoki National Park in Africa's
northern Congo through the SeaWorld & Busch
Gardens Conservation Fund.
In addition to the ice show, there are a total of
six holiday shows to see while visiting the park for
Christmas. But time is of the essence as Christmas Town
festivities last only until Dec. 23. Christmas Town event
tickets are $40 for adults and $10 for child Dec. 18 and
19, with adult prices increasing to $50 for the final four
nights. Tickets to Mrs. Claus Family Feast are $22 for
adults and $16 for children. For unlimited entry nightly
from now through Dec. 23, admission is $89 for adults
and $29 for children. Purchase tickets online for the
best prices. If you buy tickets at the park, expect to pay
$60 for the evening event. It requires a separate ticket
from daytime park admission, but daytime tickets may

be upgraded for $25 for adults and $10 for
children.
Wear long pants and bring mittens and
hats if you plan to play in the snow for more
than a few minutes. Consider that it is real
snow and really cold. More cool than cold, the
ice show pays homage to angels and features
top skaters. Other shows feature lights, carols,
"Elmo's Christmas Wish"and "Madagascar Live!"
Many of the park's most popular rides such
as Cheetah Hunt and Sheikra also will be open
during Christmas Town hours (6 p.m. to 11 p.m.)

Punta Gorda Isles



Boat Parade a 7-mirn


By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
No small town does a boat parade better than
Punta Gorda, which manages to stage two of them
every year before the Christmas holidays, each
attended by tens of thousands of holiday revelers.
The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Parade
offers viewers the majestic sight of more than 30
lighted boats parading around beautiful Charlotte
Harbor, with up-close looks at several locations like
Harpoon Harry's and Laishley Park.
The Punta Gorda Isles Boat Parade, always
held the Saturday before Christmas Eve, is a much
different event because it
is held entirely within the
canal system of PGI. IF YOU lG

be had of the entire line
of boats.
The organizers instead have learned to take
advantage of the more intimate setting and make it
the main drawing card of the parade.
Little said, "It's an unequivocal fact that the boats
are from 20 to 50 feet off the seawall, and folks
there can talk back and forth with the people on the
boats. That's what makes our parade different."
That communication has increased the past few
years as boaters have learned to do more than just
add lights and canned Christmas musicto their
vessels. Several years ago, Harris himself went
with a theme,"A Christmas Story,"on his boat and
immediately noticed a difference in the crowd
reaction.
He said,"When I changed from lights to a theme,
I got tremendous cheers from the crowd. What
really struck me the most was people saying thank
you. I never got that before."
More captains have taken notice and are decorat-
ing their boats and crews with a theme in mind.
"Boaters are figuring out what to do to
entertain the crowd ... The crowd is there to be
entertained, and we are entertaining
them. We place great emphasis
in our workshop on animated
displays, music and
entertaining the
crowd;' Little -


said of the change in approach.
The workshop is held in November in conjunction
with the chamber parade organizers and drew 100
participants this year who learned it's not difficult
to crank their boats up a notch on the entertain-
ment scale.
"It's really easy,";' Bowers said. "All you need is
some mesh, PVC pipe, black spray paint, tie wraps
and an idea. You can make dolphins, reindeer,
whatever you like."
The houses and parties along the route have
reciprocated in kind. Homeowners throw parties the
night of the parade, and the crowd along the route
has grown to 10,000 to
15,000 people.
"Publix deli has its

is for people to decorate
their homes and also
do the lots on either side ofthem if someone is not
home or the lot is empty;' Bowers said. "The goal
is to get as many homes lit as we can along the
parade route. If it goes by your house, you better
put up lights, or it's bah humbug on you."
The overall theme for this year is"Make a Joyful
Noise,;' and the crowd is being urged to contribute
its share.
"We have extended that theme to the crowd;'
Bowers said. "We are encouraging people to bring
cowbells, sleigh bells, tambourines and to use them
to cheer for their favorite boat."
If you're not lucky enough to live on the route or
get invited to the worlds longest party, there are
plenty of empty lots along the parade route where
crowds can gather. Don't forget to bring chairs,
food, libations and noisemakers to become part of
the party.
The parade kicks off around 6 p.m. at Albatross
Drive and Bal Harbor Boulevard and lasts several
hours. Bowers asked attendees to remember this
while watching the boats go by: "The boaters are
there for the crowd, and the crowd is there for the
boaters ... No gifts, no prizes, no trophies,
no awards. The only thing
boaters are
getting is cheers
and applause."

GO AT THE THEATER


Irk6 I Ml


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Some Christmas traditions are nearly becoming
etched in stone.
Venice Theatre's annual production of Charles
Dickens"A Christmas Carol"is one of the most
enduring holiday traditions here on the Culture
Coast. It has become a family affair for many in the
community theater's family.
This year is the 14th consecutive year of what is
also becoming a family affair for the theater.
"A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite things
to do each season,";' director Murray Chase said


in a recent release. "Young people return each
year, playing new roles as they get older. College
students plan their Christmas breaks around the
show. And entire families work together in the cast
and crew. It's a wonderful tradition that's been a
part of our theatre for almost 15 years."
Chase is the theater's executive director. In
keeping with family traditions at Venice Theatre,
Chase's wife Lori is the theater's event coordinator.
This version of"A Christmas Carol"features music
bythe late E. Susan Ott, with lyrics and additional
music by local teacher director and writer Scott Keys
has outlasted every other version presented in this

Sarasota Ritz offers aerial silk messages


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
For three thousand years, people in the Far
East have known the benefits of a specific type of
massage called Ashiatsu.
With a Japanese name that translates into "foot
pressure,"
Ashiatsu isa '
bodywork form
that applies ther-
apeutic pressure,
mostly from ,
the therapist's .
feet, to promote ,
health and ,
well- being. ..
The therapists
can also use their
knees, elbows,
palms, and fin-
gers during this
treatment, which
typically includes
stretching, stimu-
lation or sedation
of acupressure
points/meridians,
and structural
alignment
techniques. In a
variation of this
ancient thera- -
peutic approach, ,
The Ritz-Carlton
Sarasota has
developed a
new treatment
called Aerial Silk With aerial silk massage, mas
Massage, and stabilize themselves during tl
at $165 for a
50-minute session, it's already becoming one of the
most popular services there.
During traditional Ashiatsu massage, a therapist
holds onto ceiling bars to maintain her balance
while using her feet to perform deep tissue work on
the client's back and body.
In a nod to Sarasota's circus history as the winter
home of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and
Bailey Circus, during the Aerial Silk Massage, the
therapist will hold onto aerial silks similar to what
a circus aerialist would use during a routine to
stabilize herself.
"The Aerial Silk Massage combines the art and
healing properties of Ashiatsu with a truly engaging
experience of mind and bodyfor a treatment that
helps not only aches and pains, but also the guest's
energy or'chi,'said Veljko Savic, Spa director of The
Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota. "This treatment may

seem unconventional, but the use of body weight
and gravity of the therapist make the Aerial Silk
Massage the best way to get a true, deep tissue
treatment and body realignment."
Guests who visit the hotel's spa will also be
invited to relax and unwind in the Spa's relaxation

treatment. Later in the
massage, the
therapist will concentrate on specific areas of the
body by controlling her weight distribution and
using the silks as a stabilizer. Each guest can choose
a different therapeutic massage oil, like lavender,
eucalyptus or Florida orange and one of four music
categories: water, nature, ambient and multicultur-
al, to customize their experience.
Ashiatsu massage helps relieve pain and stress,
treat spinal problems and improve posture. It is
particularly popular among sports enthusiasts,
whose musculature may prevent penetration during
a regular hand massage.
"Our Aerial Silk Massage will help guests
transcend the stress of their lives and focus on the
maintenance of their most important resource, their
own bodies;'Savic said. "While we want our guests
to have unique, unforgettable experiences, we also
want them to leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and

In addition to the Aerial Silk Massage, The
Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota offers more than 100
wellness and anti-aging treatments using the
beneficial properties of ocean minerals, elixirs
and essential oils to restore, rejuvenate and
refresh the body. These treatments can help

SUN CORRESPONDENT
"I try to pick music that makes you
feel good and makes people want to
dance. It's that simple,";' Debra Biela
stated.
And that's exactlywhat Biela's band,
"Deb and The Dynamics"has been
doing for 10 years at various venues in
Southwest Florida. The six-piece band
plays a mixture of blues, soul, rhythm
and blues, and rock 'n'roll.
According to Biela, lead vocalist
and bass guitarist, the band's name
was chosen because it seemed to best
describe what is most important to
the band feeling the music, and
playing it with feeling is dynamic.
The band has produced five CDs that
include covers and originals. A new .,
recording of all original songs,"New
Orleans,"will be released in 2014.
Originally from Connecticut, Biela In center is
played her first gig at age 16. She are Nick Lor
credits her hard-working ethics to her Michael Bae
Italian heritage. At age 18, she hit the Donald Hul
road as lead singer and bass guitarist
with an all-female band, "Moxxie"for four years.
Biela then settled in Virginia beach where she
joined "The Rhythm and Blues AII-Stars,"an eight-
piece band that shared the stage with the Beach
Boys, Chuck Berry, and others.
"Four years later, playing with some of the
'soul Ifulist'musicians I ever met, the band split up,"
Biela stated.
After moving to Florida, she was offered to tour
the U.S., Europe and Japan by blues artist, Deborah
Coleman, who was a member of the former Moxxie
group in Virginia. They performed to sold-out audi-
ences for four years. Biela was featured on Coleman's
albums,"Living on Love"and"Soul Be It!'
One of the original members of the Dynamics, Newt
Cole, tenor and alto saxophone, and vocalist, is from
Detroit, Mich. He formed a seven-piece band,"Newt
and the Salamanders/that opened for artists such as

"Average White Band"and"Mitch Ryder'."The band won
the"Best Rhythm and Blues Band"award at the Detroit
Music Festival in 1985. Cole played with two other
bands in Michigan before moving to Florida in 1999.
Donald Hulgas, baritone saxophone and vocalist, was
born and raised in a musical family in Pittsburgh, Pa.
"My dad bought a brand-new tenor saxophone,
and when I opened the case, I was hooked;'he said.
Hulgas moved to Florida in 1982 with his family, and
he played with"Rock and Soul Review"band in 1990.
Drummer Nick Longobardi, aka Nick the Stick, a
Brooklyn native, started rocking the drums at age
12. While attending a Led Zeppelin concert, he was
inspired bythe power and energy of the drummer,
John Bonham. Longobardi played with several bands
in New York and Boston, and has been playing with
the Dynamics for over five years.

Michael Baer, keyboard player
and vocalist, said,"Even as a
child, my dad said that I would
rather practice piano than do
anything else. A child prodigy,
I haven't changed much in that
regard."
According to the band's
website, "Baer, with his jazz
background lays down Ray
EP ArATrAi Charles, along with other blues
P and jazz greats, like no other."
kLeasr Dan Keady's musical career
Sghstarted in the Boston area as
i guitarist and vocalist with
several bands. In 1969, he led
1PHO:T B "Fort Mudge Memorial Dump"
FEP ARAT.RI band to a Mercury Records deal,
efixt epa and a successful tour of the
ix Le school circuit from Cambridge to
d together New York City and Washington,
cherer State D. C. Later, Keady played with
prey. "Lovelace Band."After moving to
AFlorida in 1990, he formed the"R
& B Connection"and has played
with other local bands before

Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, North Port, Englewood & Venice 4
Myakka Pines Golf Club:
Unspoiled, Olde Florida


When was the last time you played golf in a truly natural
setting? Do you enjoy hitting your golf ball and strolling down
fairways lined by trees and lakes rather than houses and
pools? Englewood is a quiet, rural area, which is why so many
former Snow Birds choose to live here full time. Myakka Pines
Golf Club is Englewood serenity on steroids! In any round of
golf, while enjoying our lush fairways and excellent greens, you
may see great bald eagles, territorial osprey bright blue
buntings, wise ol' owls, sunbathing alligators, pink spoonbill
cranes and great blue herons.
A member-owned equity club constructed 36 years ago by
I dedicated, creative and forward thinking members, Myakka


Pines Golf Club today offers 27 holes of tournament-quality-
conditions, challenging, strategic and fun golf. As a GOLF
CLUB rather than a Country Club, the focus and financial
investment is all toward the golf course. Greens were
reconstructed in 2008 with mini-verde bermuda. Each of the
three nines is different and challenging in its own right. And,
twenty-seven holes provides the flexibility to accommodate
smooth flow on the course by melding tee time and turning
golfers based on which course has the best availability at the
time. Mickie Zada, the Club's General Manager said iWe are
able to ensure excellent rounds of golf time as well as
enjoyable playing experiences.
One of the best golf membership values in the area, Myakka
Pines Golf Club offers an equity membership and a one-year
non-equity golf pass. Private golf carts may be stored and
used at the Club by equity members; one year non-equity golf
passes include golf cart fees. All members receive free driving
range access and handicap system. Extensive practice areas
are available including chipping and putting greens and driving
range. As the Club's PGA golf professional for 25 years, Frank
Perilli maintains a well stocked golf shop offering apparel and
equipment. River Road Grille is open from 6:30 until dark each
day providing friendly service and offering breakfast and lunch
seven days a week.
For more information visit www.myakkapinesgolfclub.com or

DEAR DR. ROACH: Is
there a limit as to how
much vitamin D should be
taken a day? I am 83 years
old, have taken Femara for
10 years, have had several
rounds of prednisone (one
for longer than a year), and
I am getting about 1,950
IU of vitamin D daily. Does
that sound right? S.R.
ANSWER: Vitamin D
deficiency is common
throughout all of North
America, and the further
north you are, the more
likely you are to be defi-
cient. Older people are at
higher risk, as are those
with darker skin or those
who aren't outside very
much.
Femara, a medication
used for breast cancer, can
cause accelerated bone
loss, so getting the right
amount of vitamin D,
which helps keep bones
strong, is particularly
important. Prednisone,
used for innumerable con-
ditions, also causes bone
loss, so you are at especially
high risk.
One study gave every-
body on Femara 50,000
units of vitamin D a week
- about 7,000 units a day,
or more than three times
what you are taking and
found that such an amount
of vitamin D was safe and
reduced joint pain. So that
may be a reasonable dose
for someone on Femara.
Personally, I would
recommend getting your
blood level of vitamin D
checked, and base your
dose on the result.
Finally, most women
on Femara are on for
only five years. You might
double-check with your
oncologist about whether
you should still be on it.
DEAR DR. ROACH: As
I am concerned with my
health, I recently decided to
do some research on what
I take as a daily vitamin
and what the commercial
companies decide to add
into their pills.
One of them, selenium,
was listed as being one
of those dietary elements
about which doctors really
aren't sure what it does for
the body, but generally was
thought to be beneficial for
the joints and was recom-
mended for short-term
usage (I was unable to find
their definition of "short-
term"). The side effects
stunned me, however, and
it bothers me that it could
contribute to higher risks
of contracting diabetes. As I
have diabetes in my family
tree, I wonder if I should
avoid vitamins containing
selenium. M.T.
ANSWER: Selenium is
a mineral, a metal needed


Dr. Roach

in trace amounts in the
body. Selenium deficiency
is certainly associated
with problems, including
with the immune system
and the heart. However,
selenium deficiency is
very rare in the United
States and Canada, and
supplementing people
with already adequate
amounts of selenium does
seem to increase the risk
of diabetes. I don't recom-
mend selenium supple-
mentation for healthy
people eating a balanced
diet, especially for those at
higher-than-average risk
for diabetes.
Incidentally, a single
Brazil nut has more than a
day's worth of selenium!
DEAR DR. ROACH: Hi. I
have fallen on both knees
and periodically experience
pain. Would you recom-
mend ozone injections?
If so, are there any risks
associated with it? Any
insight you provide would
be appreciated. G.G.
ANSWER: There have
been some studies looking
at whether ozone injections
reduce pain, both in the
lower back and in the knee.
Initial results look prom-
ising, and risks seem to be
low. However, I am pretty
conservative about new
treatments, and I wouldn't
rush to get these injections
before further studies have
been done.

Coconut craze ..


Dear Heloise: I enjoyed
meeting you at an event
in Houston. I love fresh
coconut, but after I drain
the coconut and crack the
shell, it takes major surgery
to get the meat out. There
has got to be an easier way
to do it. Any suggestions?
I saw a Samoan in Hawaii
use a pointed stick in the
ground, but I don't think
I can keep one around
for just that! Ann S. in
Houston
I enjoyed meeting you
and your daughter; please
give her a hug for me!
Trying to crack a coconut
can drive you "nuts"!
The coconut needs to be
baked before the meat is
removed.
Put the coconut in the
oven (on 350 F) for 15-
20 minutes. Remove
carefully and wrap in a
heavy towel. Use a ham-
mer to whack the heck out
of it. Just keep hammering
away, and it should break
into pieces, which makes it
easier to remove the meat.

The foiled touch
Dear Heloise: When I
cook with aluminum foil,
I sometimes notice that
there are black specks left
on the food after cooking.
What causes this, and is
it something I need to
worry about? Rachel T.,
via email
Don't worry. These
specks can be caused
when aluminum foil
touches food that
contains vinegar or salt
or that is highly acidic

Hints from Heloise

or spicy. It's a reaction
between the foil and the
food. It's not harmful,
and you can safely eat
the black specks. But if
you would rather not,
then just remove them.

Kitchen hints
Dear Heloise: While
visiting a friend, I asked
where she had found the
big, wide rubber bands
that are so handy for large
extension cords, boxes in
the pantry, etc. She said
that when her rubber
gloves develop holes, she
cuts across the cuffs to
form the wide bands. Not
only handy, but a great
way to recycle.
Another hint is that
after dropping a piece of
eggshell into a light-col-
ored batter and not
finding it, I now keep
a stack of disposable,
clear plastic cups in the
kitchen. When a recipe
calls for eggs, I break the
eggs into the plastic cup,
and if there is a problem,
I can solve it and then
toss the cup. ZeldaW

Husband on g

wants his wil

DEAR ABBY: A couple
of years ago, my husband
informed me that he
likes to dress in women's
clothing. Since then he
has read books, is seeing a
counselor, and the reality is,
he is transgender. He now
wears his hair long and has
long fingernails.
I have tried to be under-
standing and have gone
places with him when he
is dressed as a woman. He
has met other transgender
people who have either
made the full transition or
are content without it. I al-
low my husband time with
these new friends without
me. I did feel weird that he
was clothes shopping and
going to movies with his
new friends.
I have reconciled with
these activities and I'm OK
with them so far. But I have
told him that if he decides
to change his gender to
female, I will not be able to
be married to him. He's on
hormones at the moment
and has told me he plans to
start testosterone blockers.
I love him, Abby, but not
the woman side of him.
Am I unreasonable to put a
boundary on my marriage?
He thinks if he slowly eases
me into the idea that it will
be OK. He says I am his
"world" and I should love
him no matter what gender
he is. Am I being selfish?
-SOMEWHERE IN THE
NORTHWEST
DEAR SOMEWHERE:
You appear to be a loving
and accepting wife. You
may be your husband's
world, but his world is
changing and along
with it, so is yours. It is not
selfish to take care of your-
self. You did not enter your
marriage to be partnered
with another woman, and
you should not be made
to feel guilty remaining
with one if it's not what you
want. Some spouses stay
together; others just can't.

DEAR ABBY: I have
always had an extremely
close relationship with
my little sister. Last year, I
graduated from high school
and left for university. It
was hard for both of us. My
college is an hour away,
so even though I live on
campus, I try to come
home whenever I can to
visit on weekends.
Lately it seems like my
little sister has emotionally
distanced herself from me.
She doesn't confide in me
anymore, shows little in-
terest in my life, and it has
gotten to the point where
she barely acknowledges
me in public. She tells me
I'm overreacting and to
stop being stupid.
My mom says she does
this with everyone and that
this is typical for a 14-year-
old teenager, but it breaks
my heart to be so excluded
from her life. Is this just
a phase I have to learn to
deal with and accept? What
should I do? -SAD BIG
SISTER IN SWITZERLAND
DEAR BIG SISTER: Your
sister is growing up, and
part of that process means
becoming an individual.
Right now she is trying to
figure out who she is, apart
from the family she loves
-including you. Because
you were so close, she may
have felt abandoned when
you left for college. Let your
sister evolve. She'll be back


"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath
anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath
sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliver-
ance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at libery them that are bruised. Luke 4:18
The fact that He is the poor man's friend does not
mean that He is the rich man's enemy. It is the love
of money that is the "root of all evil." "God is no
respector of persons."

Venice Gondolier readers: Look for the puzzle solution in the Our Town section


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April19).While waiting fora
parent to assemble a toy, a child learns patience. If
young children can learn not to expect immediate
results, so can that childish person in your life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Of course people should
take care of themselves. But you're willing to go the
extra mile to take care of others and not just
when they are sick or weary, but any old time at all.
It's part of how you show your love.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll get plenty accom-


others fear. You're fine with being alone, and you're
not afraid of silence, either. In fact, you prefer it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you look for
opportunities, you're not seeking a free handout
or benefit. Instead, you're looking for a chance to
match your skills with another person's needs.
L[EO (July 23-Aug. 22).You'll be dealing with people
of all ages. It can be difficult to keep everyone's
developmental stage in mind, but try to remember
not to treatolder people like children.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).Whilea relationship is


for a reason. Keeping score won't change that and to surprise the one you love. You'll be thrilled at the be loyal in return. Know that everyone is trying to


will only make you feel worse.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Avoid the passive-aggres-
sive choice to remain silent as a means of making
someone pay attention to you. It will be far more
effective to say what you need to say.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes taking your
grievances directly to the source is not the best idea.
Give it some time. You'll feel differently tomorrow,
and Friday will change yourstance yet again.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your creativity is


happy, excited response your efforts earn.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Friends who don't
take an interest when you speak of your hopes and
dreams aren't really friends at all. Rather, they are
people who fit into your current lifestyle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Go off script. Ifyou
make a scripted inquiry, you'll get an insincere
response. Say what you really want to express, and
ask what you really wantto know.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).There's no need to test


do what's best. Stay focused on the things that will
improve your corner of the scene.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 18). A relationship has
taught you well, though the"watch and learn"
mode ends in January. You'll love the feeling of
being in charge in 2014. February brings a fun twist
to your domestic arrangement. March sends you
on a work-related quest. In May, you'll prove you're
ready for more power and responsibility. Cancer and
Scorpio people adoreyou.Your lucky numbers are:


polished because you thrive in the very atmosphere obviously uneven, the fact remains that you're there flowing more strongly than usual. Consider using it a person's loyalty;just assume he or she is loyal and 5,20,4,33 and 28.

Opening lead: Four of
East won the opening heart lead
and continued with the queen. Next
came a diamond, which declarer won
in dummy while discarding his
remaining heart. South, who knew
where all the spades were from the
auction, now cleverly ran the six of
spades. Declarer next led the jack of
spades from dummy, letting it run
when East played low. One more
spade finesse followed by the ace
took care of the trumps. South now
led a club. West hopped up with his
ace and played a diamond. South
ruffed and cashed dummy's two high


clubs. When that suit split 3-3, he had
his contract. He ruffed a diamond
back to his hand and played the long
club for 10 tricks.
Did you spot any errors? There
were plenty.
East should have played a third
round of hearts, forcing dummy to
ruff and assuring himself of a trump
trick. Then, West should have played
low on the first club, allowing
dummy's king to win. Declarer
would have to ruff a diamond back to
his hand to lead a second club. West
plays his ace at this point and then
another diamond, forcing South to
ruff with his last trump. Now when
South cashes the good club in
dummy, he has no way back to his
hand to enjoy the long club.
South could always have made his
contract after the diamond play at
trick three. He should have overtaken
dummy's six of spades with the eight
and led a club to dummy's king.
Assuming West ducks, South draws
trumps as before and leads a second
club. Should West hop up with the
ace and play a diamond. South can
ruff but still has a trump remaining.
Now, when he cashes the good club
in dummy, he can ruff back to his
hand and play the long club. Making
four!

DOORYARD GARDENERS
Peach trees will grow &
produce quality fruit in Florida
if your selection is purchased
from a nursery that sells
varieties that are developed
by the Univ. of Fl. Institute of
Food and Agriculture Sciences
(IFAS) Avoid purchasing peach
varieties that originate from
out of state simply because,
they require high chill hours
& consequently minimize
bearing potential. For more

Eve Thurston smiled as she walked her brand-new, shiny pink and purple bicycle out of Epiphany Hall in Venice on Saturday afternoon. Holding a pink helmet in one hand and a wrapped present in the other, the 9-year-old just experienced the magical kindness of the Christmas season. I really like it and I cant wait to ride it, Eve said. I feel real lucky. About 140 kids identied by various organizations, including the Salvation Army, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Catholic Charities and Center of Hope, and several foster children, received a new bike, a helmet and a $10 Christmas gift. Each one was also given the choice of a grab bag from under the tree. A lucky penny was placed inside three of the bags. The families of the children who got a lucky penny would be provided with a complete Christmas dinner. Its a way to show that our community cares, said Rich Carroll, an organizer of the event. Carroll said this is the 16th year the holiday event has taken place. More than 2,800 bicycles have been given away since its inception. And its all done by donations, Carroll said. Most of these people are friends and business associates in the community.Santa came to townBy SUSAN ERWINCORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FENNELLSanta is swarmed by kids at the annual bike giveaway organized by Rich Carroll at Epiphany Cathedral Saturday. More than 100 kids walked away with a new bike and helmet. Kids of all ages were eager to greet Santa at the bike giveaway Saturday. With his sleigh grounded by the wind, Santa makes his entrance at the bike giveaway via the Venice Police Department boat. SANTA | 3The city of Venice is taking an extreme measure to make sure it doesnt appear to commit a Sunshine Law violation. Its been the target of numerous lawsuits by Sunshine attorney Andrea Mogensen ever since she settled a case against the city in 2009. That ended in the payment of more than $1 million in attorney fees to various law rms. These people scare me to death, said Council Member Jeanette Gates at a recent city council meeting. Theyre making a living on this. Theyre ready to catch us on anything. On Tuesday, council put its Agenda Committee under the microscope after City Attorney David Persson expressed concern that he hadnt come across another Possible Sunshine issue avertedBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORSUNSHINE | 12 City leaders were left scratching their heads this week after learning the special event fees for one service organization seeking a festival permit had more than doubled over last year. Joe Pokorney asked for a waiver of $2,800, or half of the city fees charged, for the annual Venice-Nokomis Rotary Fine Art and Craft Festival that will take place on the airport festival grounds Jan. 17-19. The fees cover such things as police, re and public works department stafng, equipment rental, solid waste cleanup and an $1,800 festival grounds fee in all, Event fees raised, waivedBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORARTFEES | 4 WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY WWW.VENICEGONDOLIERSUN.COM FOR HOME DELIVERY, CALL 9412071300 FRONT SECTION OUR TOWN SECTION IN THIS EDITION COUPONS DEATHSBUSINESS ...................................... 6A LEGALS ........................................12A LET EM HAVE IT .......................... 8A LOTTERY ........................................ 2A OBITUARIES .................................. 5A OPINION ........................................ 8A POLICE BEAT ..............................13A SPORTS ........................................10A TIM SMOLARICK .......................... 8A WEATHER ...................................... 2A AROUND TOWN ........................ 8B CLASS ACTS ............................... 7B CROSSWORD ............................. 6B MILESTONES ............................. 7B WELLBEING .............................. 2B AMERICAN PROFILE CLASSIFIEDS LETS GO!

Its named after the person who came up with the idea and who inspires a group of volunteers to spend Thursday mornings making sure the grounds are kept in perfect condition. What started out as an idea has grown into a reality of about 100 trees, identied and cared for by sponsors and volunteers. The arboretum also includes bronze animals a turtle, a manatee, a panther and others. Jim Woods proposed the idea of the name change to City Council. Mayor John Holic said, It was a no-brainer. There was a unanimous vote to change the name. Members of Venice Area Beautication Inc., the Venice Garden Club and City Council gathered for the ofcial ribbon-cutting by the mayor and Andrews at the entrance to the Arboretum Saturday evening. After the ribbon-cutting, more than 500 people moved into the park for the lighting of the trees. On a signal, the mayor and more than 100 children shouted, Merry Christmas! and all the trees in the Arboretum were lit at once, creating a wonderland of lights. Thanks to Monty Andrews vision, every one in Venice can take a walk each evening in a park dressed in holiday cheer.Arboretum takes Andrews nameBy FRAN VALENCICSOCIAL COLUMNIST SUN PHOTO BY FRAN VALENCICVenice Mayor John Holic, left, and Monty Andrews cut the ribbon to dedicate the West Blalock Park Arboretum to Andrews, who conceived the project and leads volunteers who help maintain it.Fireworks planned at SharkysSTAFF REPORT Find it in the CLASSIFIEDS!

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A Diana Hamilton, from Trinity Without Borders in Sarasota, was happy to invite 25 children from the organization to come and participate. I put out a shout-out to help collect donations to purchase presents for needy kids, Hamilton said. Rich called me right away and offered to provide bikes for 15 of our kids. The Venice Police Department co-hosted the event along with Venice Challenger Baseball program. Santa usually arrives by helicopter every year, but this year, due to the wind, he was brought in by boat and escorted by the Venice Police Department to Epiphany Cathedral. Sarasota County Commissioner Carolyn Mason also attended the event, bringing with her a neighbor who is a grandmother raising two boys on her own. The Venice High School baseball team served pizza and bever ages to the guests and served as escorts, rolling the bicycles outside to be loaded into vehicles and transported home for the children. Carroll said Laura Schadewalt, a manager at Hess, provided 40 pizzas for everyone to enjoy at the event. Its just a real good feeling knowing you are able to brighten the holiday season for a child, said Carroll. We do it for the kids its all about them.

4A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 totaling $5,601. Council granted the waiver, primarily because much of the proceeds of the event go to charity, and sought an explanation of the higher fees from the city manager. City Manager Ed Lavallee said it was councils direction over the past few years to try to eliminate subsidies and fee waivers when possible and come up with a special events contract that more accurately captured costs incurred by the city. What council apparently didnt expect was a requirement to have a dedicated re engine or EMS ambulance at the ready on festival grounds. For that service alone the city charges $1,599. The presence of two police ofcers accounts for another $899 over the three-day-event. Weve gone a long ways with dealing with this subject, said Council Member Bob Daniels. (But when you have) 22 years of having the event and never a re, for the city to impose $1,600 for city re department to be onsite I have a hard time justifying that to my constituents. I know what were trying to do. Weve broken the (subsidy) culture here. The past culture generated a lot of overtime for reghters. I think this is overdoing it. Council Member Jeanette Gates questioned the need for onsite protection at all. I dont understand that whole concept, Gates said. You can call them if you need them. They are only two minutes down the road, she said, referring to Station No. 1 next to city hall a mile away. Lavellee said he deferred to the re chiefs request. Hed like to have best practices (and) have it onsite. Its an administrative decision, Lavallee said. The Devereaux-Kaiser Antique Car Show last year played a role in staffs thinking. Inadequate police presence and volunteer parking staff resulted in 40-minute delays in and out of the festival grounds something staff are concerned could happen again. The auto show has since found a new venue. Mayor John Holic took issue with including the re department fee in the special events agreement. Fire department stafng is discretionary. We have to bring police in, Holic said. If were hitting discretionary funding, then I think were doing it wrong. Council Member Jim Bennett pointed out that granting Rotarys waiver request has an indirect benet. If we do not charge Rotary the full amount, we are supporting that much of they charities (that) they support. Only a few citizens would object, Bennett said. Not everyone agreed the fees were too high. If we can justify $2,500 for Sun Fiesta, then (this) $2,800 (to cover police and re protection) is certainly justied, Council Member Dave Sherman said. And its not two minutes away. It can be an hour away when you look at what we had (trafc jams) with Kaiser. I think the numbers are justied. Council Member Emilio Carlesimo, a retired reghter, agreed keeping re department staff on hand was a best practice. Weve never had a heart attack at that event, but thats not a guarantee that will we wont have one this time or two years from now. I support the rec ommendation to have this added protection, Carlesimo said. In the end, council voted unanimously to grant the partial fee waiver.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comARTFEESFROM PAGE 1 475567 Breakfast Special Served All Day 2 eggs, sausage or bacon, fries or grits, toast. $3.95 Lunch Menu Mon.

You might be surprised how easy you make it for both the opportunist and the professional burglar to make you a victim. Seeing an open door, knocking and getting no response the opportunist slips in, steals a few items and leaves. Rather than storing presents in plain sight under a tree or about the house, keep your blinds drawn for privacy. Organized and planned burglaries are the work of the professionals who will know the contents of your home and be prepared to open a locked safe and search drawers for high-value items. Their work may take hours, and they will have it planned long before they enter the property. Expert advice on how to better secure your home from all thieves is available from the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce, whose Crime Prevention ofcers will carry out a free security survey of your home or business upon request. Youll accompany an ofcer for a 45-minute property survey during which conditions will be noted that could be the difference between preventing or having to endure the trauma of a burglary, according to Sgt. Neil Scully of the Crime Prevention Unit. All access points are addressed, including the front door, windows, sliding glass doors and French doors. Additional safety features will be suggested, whether an alarm system, additional or replacement locks and more. Recommendations of trusted locksmiths or handymen will be provided, assuming you dont have the skills to do any work yourself. Scully recommends that every home have an alarm system and will give you the knowledge needed to shop for one. Dummy alarm boxes in a commercial environment can be a liability. Additionally, a fake camera could result in someone believing there was an expectation of safety, creating legal issues if theres a crime committed. Photographs of your valuables are a major help to police investigators in identifying stolen items, Scully said. He also encourages inscribing your drivers license number on your TV set, for instance. The Crime Prevention Unit has a program with detailed information about marking valuables and keeping serial numbers of computers and other items. Jewelry should be kept in a safe or, better, a safety deposit box. Thats is not convenient, but its the safest choice. If you use a safe at home, it should not be so small it could be carried out of the home by a burglar. All safes should be anchored permanently. When the holidays are over and its trash collection day, be careful when disposing of the containers, Scully said. Placing the box from your new, largescreen plasma TV outside for collection is telling the criminal what is in your home. Scullys advice is to break up the box and package it so people cannot identify what it contained.Email: rogerbutton@verizon.netGet a home security survey, for safetys sakeBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNISTCity staff looking for ways to save money have come up with another renancing opportunity that could save the city up to $1.2 million. The Venice City Council earlier this week approved taking out a loan for up to $6.6 million to pay off a series of 2004 bonds approved by voters in 2003. The bonds paid for such things as a new municipal pier, rehabilitating the Venice Community Center, beach renourishment and the purchase of what would become Maxine Barritt Park. City Finance Director Jeff Snyder said the immediate saving would be $923,000 in todays dollars. Extrapolated out 10 years over the life of the loan, that equates to an estimated $1.2 million total saving, he said. Its a 12.75 percent saving on the general obligation debt. You wont see that very often, Snyder said. Citizens will see a benet. The debt tax rate will go down. The renance takes place the rst week in January 2014. Council approved the renancing package with only one comment. This is great, said Council Member Kit McKeon.Other actionAlso at the Dec. 10 meeting, council: Approved a midnight reworks display at Sharkys on the Pier on New Years Eve. Dissolved the Bella Venetia Community Development District and established the Toscana Isles Community Development District for a Laurel Road subdivision being constructed. Approved two Venice Municipal Airport projects that are a precursor to rehabilitation of Runway 13-31, which will take a safety zone off of two dozen homes. The projects authorized are an environmental assessment of the runway and a supplemental Joint Participation Agreement with the Department of Transportation and city to make other improvements to Runway 4-11, including building a taxiway and clearing an object-free zone.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comBond refinance could save $1.2 millionBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR Maureen Kearns was already thinking about where to set up her Segway tour business in Florida when she learned about Venice Police Department Segway patrols, and how ofcers are often asked by the public where they too can ride a Segway. Investigating online and nding an absence of Segway services in Venice, she saw the opportunity to base her transportable Segway business in the area. A few weeks ago she arrived in Sarasota County and parked her recreation vehicle in Nokomis. Acquiring space at the Seaboard Office Park, she unloaded her 11 Segways from the trailer she had towed from Detroit and made plans to launch Segway Venice. She is offering three Segway tours daily, but no rentals. The morning tour, designed for urbanites and history buffs, ventures into downtown Venice, visiting the shopping district, parks and residential areas. The lunchtime tour is for those who want a speedy ride along the Legacy Trail, stopping for a break at the Trail General Store. In the late afternoon she offers a sunset tour to the Venice Fishing Pier, with a stop to take in the sunset while enjoying refreshments at Sharkys. Riders must be at least 14 years old, and the tour must be booked in advance. Tours cost $55 to $65. Riders watch an eight-minute video presentation on the Segway and are tted with a helmet. Segways have no gears; riders operate the machines, which have a cruising speed of 10 to 11 mph, by balance. Tour participants must wear closed-toe shoes and will be given assistance in mounting the machine in the parking lot for a trial run. On each tour there is a maximum of nine riders, with a guide and rear support rider. The tours average two hours, and riders generally stay on sidewalks and bike paths, Where necessary, riders can be on the road if the speed limit is 25 mph or less. Born in Detroit, Kearns moved with her family to Washington, D.C., where she was schooled, eventually graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in interior design. Preferring administrative work, she joined her dad, a well-known patent holder who invented the intermittent windshield wiper, suing Ford and Chrysler over the device. In 2005, she started a nonprot organization in downtown Detroit, offering both walking and bus tours of the city. Later, she started historical bus tours and it became a full-blown tour company. She created the rst welcome center for the city. Partnering with a man who had some Segways, they introduced riding tours. Upon dissolving the partnership, she acquired new machines and kept the Segway tours operating in summer, bringing them to Florida during the winter and setting up rentals in various cities, including Punta Gorda. Riding a Segway at 11 mph on the Legacy Trail is very exhilarating experience, said Kearns. Taking the Waterway Park along the Intracoastal to the beach is fun. Segway Venice is at 312 E.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A When the season ended last spring, customers gathered for a weekend of parties before the doors nally closed at T.J. Carneys Irish Pub at 231 W. Venice Ave. Owners Tom and Karyn Carney saw new restaurants opening in Venice and knew it was time for a change. We realized we had to become more updated, more today and more now, Karyn said. We did some research and knew craft beers have become quite popular. We wanted to cater to people in a more sedate fashion. The Carneys have always promoted family dining, encouraging people to bring their children and their parents. They decided there was a need downtown for a 21st century family sports restaurant. Plans were made for their new BrewHouse Sports Grill. The whole interior of T.J. Carneys was torn out and every thing rebuilt. Remodeling included a spacious restaurant, all new furniture and restrooms. The centerpiece is a large, horseshoe-shaped bar with 30 high bar stools. Along the west side are eight-, sixand four-seat high-top dining tables. At the front by the street windows are booths, with additional raised booths on the east side. To the rear are tables and chairs, while outside under the balcony are casual Gulf-style tables and chairs. In total there are 150 seats. Tom and I do not want to cater to just one age group or generation, and I think the BrewHouse speaks for itself. Karyn said. They know their families are welcome. Here it is light, fun and family stuff. Throughout the restaurant are largescreen TVs, mostly afxed to the drop-down ceiling on both the inside and outside above the bar. They said more TVs are coming, to be attached to the walls of the sports bar. Wherever diners are seated throughout the BrewHouse, they will be able to view TV screens. An unusual new feature is the tiled wall inside the entrance, which Tom Carney designed. The bar has a lighted display as a focal point, with 24 on-tap craft beers and numerous bottled craft beers as well as national brands, liquors and sodas. The spacious interior leaves Carney the option of offering entertainment not big bands, but a DJ, duo or trio. At night the TVs will play music videos if there are no games. Available from11 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day, the menu has undergone some changes, but customer favorites including jambalaya and osso buco have been retained. New appetizers, salads, a shrimp fondue and recracker shrimp have been added. BrewHouse burgers include the spicy Jackedup Burger and Hangover Burger. Pizzas and hot dogs have been added, along with desserts from the Cheesecake Factory. There is a kids menu. We have hired 20 employees and I am looking to add more for the season, Karyn said. Already we are getting good customer feedback; they are happy with the new restaurant design. People who know Carneys appreciate we love this business and we are sincere in our efforts to please everyone.Email: rogerbutton@verizon.netBrewHouse gets crafty with beer selectionsBY ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST SUN PHOTOS BY ROGER BUTTONBar manager Je Carney prepares a special cocktail at the new BrewHouse Sports Grill.

Lic# 14016 MM14015 If you have ever suffered a sudden jolt and impact, there may be no noticeable symptoms for weeks or months. The reason for this is that the spinal discs and ligaments, the tough connective tissue that holds bones together, have no pain fibers. If muscle spasms and inflammation around the nerve roots develop, this may cause headaches, dizziness, neuralgia, and loss of neck motion. Sudden jolts and impacts are often associated with whiplash injuries that result when an automobile is struck from behind. When this happens, the person in the struck auto finds his body thrust forward and his neck and head backward. In a major injury, several thousand pounds of force may be absorbed by the cervical or neck area of the spine. Similar though less severe injuries can also result from falls and body-contact sports. If you are suffering from pain in the neck or any area of your back, you may be able to benefit greatly from chiropractic treatment.

OUR VIEWFighting the good fight on flood insuranceIn the world of Washington politics, it is not surprising that both U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan and Sen. Bill Nelson failed in attempts recently to postpone crippling hikes in ood insurance rates for homeowners. Buchanan, a Sarasota Republican, believed he had the support to get a vote on a proposal to at least delay the rate increases for 15 months while a more permanent solution was agreed on. Surprisingly, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who had supported that same idea just a few months ago, would not climb aboard the bus. Waters, ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, was a chief architect of the bipartisan Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act that ordered an end to many premium subsidies for property owners and a remapping of communities that has resulted in horror stories for homeowners in ood-prone areas, or who live near the beach. In one extreme example, a Florida couple who live in a house overlooking Boca Ciega Bay found their annual ood insurance premium would jump from $4,300 to nearly $44,000. There are a number of less extreme but very high insurance rate hikes right here in our communities. The problem, according to lawmakers who originally supported Waters bill, is that the Federal Emergency Management Administration was supposed to do an affordability study before the new rates were implemented. That study is still two years away but FEMA elected to charge the higher rates in 2014. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., tried his hand at passing a bill through the Senate last week that would delay the rate hikes, but he also met with opposition that temporarily, at least, killed the bill. A spokesman for Buchanan said the representative is in constant meetings on the ood insurance issue. He said Buchanan and others who support the delay in rate hikes, like Alcee Hastings, D-Fort Lauderdale and co-chair of the Florida delegation, believe they have a good bill. They remain optimistic something can be done after the holidays. Rep. Tom Rooneys ofce said Tuesday that the Florida Republican has co-sponsored just about every bill to stave off ood insurance hikes that has been presented and that he, among others, is highly supportive of the bipartisan efforts. We are perplexed that the House members are having such a difcult time. This is not a partisan issue. The rate hikes affect homeowners in California, South Carolina, North Carolina, Colorado and all along the Eastern Seaboard. The sticking point, it seems, is that some states in the more arid or dry parts of the country believe they are carrying the burden for people who want to live near the water. Lawmakers from those states are basically asking Whats in this for us? We are pleased that our representatives in both the House and Senate are working together, regardless of party afliation, to provide some relief to homeowners. We tip our hat to Buchanan, Nelson and others who continue to champion this ght. Lists then and nowChristmas is right around the corner and I have yet to complete my shopping. It seems like the older I get, the longer I put it off each year. Perhaps the kids getting older has something to do with my procrastination. I have made several attempts to get this done but the truth is, I just cant understand what it is the kids want these days. Sure, they can tell you all that they want, but these newfangled electronic things can be daunting to shop for, with countless others seeking the same things you are. I was looking at a childs Christmas list from deep in the past and was amazed at how different that list was from the list of kids today. That old list was lled with wishes for things needed to function in the world, and at the very end of the list the kid asked for a toy and some candy if Santa could spare those items. I was completely astonished at the difference between that old list I found and the ones I see today. I can only imagine how tough it was to be a parent and provide the fun and excitement that the gifts of our modern era provide our youngsters now. It must have been a tremendous task to make Christmas special for the youngsters. What do you think? But perhaps the magic of Christmas back then was not as much about getting gifts under a tree as much as it was being thankful for what you did have. Maybe it was about spending time with those you could not see as much as you would like as they were always busy just providing for the people in their family. In a lot of cases I imagine Christmas was about having a different menu on this special day. The list from back then was not about brand names, not about keeping up with other kids and not about how much was being asked for. The list was lled with need, humility and, nally, hopes for something special. It would more than likely be a safe bet that if the kids back then awoke to Christmas morning and there was a toy, they would cherish it yearround and never take it for granted. We tend to think that life was simpler back then, but I think the real truth is life was less complicated back then. Not for one minute could we term life as simpler then based on that old Christmas list from long ago; in fact, it feels like it was downright tough. However, as those kids grew to be adults they had already learned to value their possessions and to ask for just enough to get by. They had learned that the most important part of Christmas was family, and sharing a meal. They learned that hope was just as important as the gift itself. Surprisingly, these lessons learned were necessary to lead our nation through some pretty bleak times, including a depression and two world wars. Things happen for a reason. Shifting back to our time, I have to believe that these lists of today are preparing our world for the next phase. As our kids start developing into adults, what are the lessons we have passed onto them, and how will they affect this planet years from now? We dont get the luxury of analyzing a Christmas list a century from now, but if I could venture a guess the people in the future would say life was sure a lot simpler back then (now). And as I walked past the iPad Air, I noticed an old Atari game system on the shelf and I laughed aloud thinking, life was a lot simpler back then.

The U.S. is certainly Israels best friend, but I sometimes question whether Israel is a good friend to the U.S. Israel has been using money from the U.S. for a settlement program. These settlements are killing the chance of an negotiated peace with Palestinians. Mr. Netanyahu stated that Israel has a healthy economy. Our economy, on the other hand, is on the brink of disaster. Based on these facts, it is strange that we are still giving money to Israel. It is stranger yet that as a friend, Israel still accepts aid from the U.S. Up to now, we seem to have a perfect giveand-take relationship with Israel. We give Israel money and they take it. Chew on this. Im calling with a suggestion for the newspaper that I thought would be helpful to the readers, and that is they have a restaurant column. With over 70 restaurants in Venice, theyve got plenty to write about even if they just took one restaurant a week. They couldnt cover them all in a year. With all the management changes, updates, location changes, phone numbers just things that would be helpful to people here in Venice. I think that would be a real plus for the newspaper because something everyone here does is eat out. Snowbirds? I agree that snowbirds are awful drivers. I just wonder how all of them got Florida license plates. Commie killer. In response to people who wrote in about Dallas and the killing of John F. Kennedy: Be reminded that President Kennedy was killed by a left-wing Communist and not the city of Dallas. Pot partisan. I am a 64-yearyoung woman. Ive been on a morphine pump that doctors put me on and had beaucoup narcotics put into my body. Ive been through two accidental overdoses, and every day when I get up, theres pain. Everywhere in my body, theres pain. I am from California and was introduced into marijuana approximately 37 years ago. And because of the use of marijuana, I was able to discontinue the copious amounts of narcotics that were placed inside my body. I was able to understand more about how it operates in my physical skeleton to keep me from getting the pain. I wish the state of Florida would open up its eyes and let the people in Florida have a release from their pain from a simple plant that grows from the ground. I have heard Morgan & Morgan is trying to push this issue with the government. I have been in pain for probably 41 years. I dont remember anymore. I wish the people in pain would have a say too. Bad timing. Im calling about a man who has worked for a woman on the island of Venice for over 20 years as a landscaper and is being told he will no longer do this work. Hes not young. At Christmastime, I dont know how they could possibly say that theyre going to eliminate this position. It mysties me. Thanks for all the good work, and love your newspaper. Merry Christmas. Let go. Venetians didnt realize the value of our circus and didnt x the railroad in order to keep it. Its time to convince somebody that its time to let it go. They did a really bad thing. Lets not do that again. I dont want to take a backseat to Sarasota. Why should Sarasota get all the glory? Ulterior motive. About Obamacare: I think it is working exactly as it was designed to so that in the end people would be clamoring for a single-payer system. Its the goal of this administration. I think by screwing up Obamacare the way they did, it was done on purpose to make people open-minded enough to say we need a single-payer system. This is a horror! Down in the mouth. Tis the season to be scammed. I suggest a written estimate of all your dental work before you proceed. Personally, Im not too jolly. Kudos. Many thanks and praise for the people who decorate West Blalock Park for Christmas. It looks fantastic and gets better every year.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A Far from robust, our recovery from the Great Recession is fragile and uncertain, but experience suggests that Florida is once more ready to outpace the nation in vigorous growth, based on its attractive climate and the opportunities from growth based on the baby boomer population reaching retirement age. Statistics suggest the platform for growth is here. But my conviction is based on living with the ts and starts of the roller-coaster ride that has been Floridas growth since our family moved to Miami Beach during the Great Depression, 77 years ago. It was 10 years after the 1926 collapse of the great Florida land boom. Many a hopeful Yankee had gone back home. The state population had slipped back to something over 1.5 million. The landscape was littered with weathered signs on arches leading to developments that never got off the ground. In the summertime, nearly empty oceanfront hotels on South Beach rented rooms for a dollar a day. Our father and two of his brothers-in-law started a Miami Beach delivery business. They had three Gulf-watergreen panel trucks with gold lettering: Special Delivery Inc. Uncle Bob was the salesman lining up Lincoln Road specialty stores to buy his delivery service for their shoppers. Uncle Bucky was the driver and Frederic, our dad, kept the books and helped line up the packages in route delivery order. The business began to build, but the second summer was too slow to sustain the enterprise. Bank loans were not in the realm of possibility. They sold out to Ryder Trucking for what they owed on the panel trucks. Uncle Bob found a job selling Cadillacs in the recovering Miami economy. Frederic went to work for a CPA and Bucky went back to Hackensack, N.J. Here and there new stores lled empty lots on Lincoln Road. FHA loans encouraged new home construction. With $500 borrowed from his father, Frederic was able to buy a lot and build a modest new home in Surfside, Fla. On Collins Avenue, along the oceanfront, new apartments were constructed. Air conditioning, not yet in South Beach hotels, began to move beyond the movie theaters and Burdines department store. The recovery was underway. Florida continued to have its economic ups and downs, but the broad trend has been to grow. Today reminds me of the Jimmy Carter malaise of 1977. Florida was recovering from one of its periodic busts but did not know it. Lucky for me, as that is when we started our business. The weekly newspaper in Venice and a companion paper in New Port Richey had been losing money, making a purchase possible. The landlord for the Venice Gondolier wanted his building back. We were able to buy a small building and the land to construct a new newspaper plant from a surveyor who had gone bankrupt. A friendly investor put up the money to construct the plant and ofce. Ination soon boosted the land and building value well beyond the construction debt. Within nine months, the business had shifted from loss to prot. Our Florida population is more than 10 times the size it was when our family moved to Venice in 1977. Already we are beginning to see new retirees feed our population growth. Cautious businesses are slow to staff to serve the new arrivals. When optimism replaces caution in hiring to serve a growing population, it will acceler ate our recovery. Its great to be in Florida.

He appeared destined for a runner-up nish before a lastsecond reversal against Mariners Keaton Koselke earned Kelly the title. Kelly was also voted the tournaments most outstanding wrestler by the tournaments coaches, an honor no VHS wrestler had won since Levi Duyn accomplished the feat in 2003. Three Indians Brent Smallwood (113), Bo Williams (120) and CJ Trammell (145) earned second in their respective classes. Smallwood beat Lemon Bays returning state qualier Jack Lipp in the seminals before dropping a 5-3 decision to North Ports Alejandro Torres in the nal. Williams and Trammell both fell to wrestlers ranked in the top four in their classes, the former falling 4-0 to Riverdales Rich Riechelt (No. 4 at 120 pounds) while Palmetto Ridges Joey Nadotti (No. 3 at 145 pounds) took a 5-3 decision over Trammell.

As Venice head boys basketball coach James Slaton admitted after Tuesday nights 60-45 loss to North Port, its hard to simulate pressure defenses that involve 6 players in practice when you dont have any of your own. Slaton and the Indians realized that fact the hard way during the rst quar ter, when the Bobcats stormed out to a 16-2 lead thanks to numerous Venice turnovers that turned into North Port layups on the other end. Theyre just really long, Slaton said. Theyre all 6, 6 and quick. ...We knew it was coming; they did it to Charlotte. We didnt handle it well early. North Port head coach Travis Slanger said he decided to employ a 1-2-2 half-court trap to take advantage of Venices diminutive lineup, which consisted of ve guards Dom Marino, Isaac Whitney, Langston Provitt, John Cokley and Jake MacFarlane. That was our game plan, Slanger said. Use our length to trap and create offense through our defense. Venice managed to cut the decit to 18-11 at the end of the quarter thanks to a 7-0 run in the nal 15 seconds of the opening period. The Indians hung tough for the rest of the rst half and cut their decit to 33-31 midway through the third on Jake MacFarlanes (10 points) second three-pointer of the night. But the Bobcats lead ballooned back to 12 by the end of the quarter, as the Indians shots from the perimeter stopped falling during the last four minutes of the quarter. We had some wide open looks, and just didnt make them, Slaton said. Sometimes that happens in basketball. We dont have the size to be able to pump it inside, so weve got to rely on our perimeter game. And we just didnt quite make the plays when we needed to. The Bobcats, meanwhile, featured balanced scoring throughout their starting lineup. Vic Sinopoli and Brandon Gonzales scored 13 points apiece, with Teddy Deas (11) and Justyn Miller (10) contributing as well. Venice wouldnt go down without a ght, as Marinos (team-high 11 points) three with a little more than two minutes remaining made it a 50-43 game. But North Port senior Avery Francis scored consecutive buckets on a layup and a dunk to put the game out of reach. Although he wasnt pleased with the way his team started the game, Slaton said his team can use it as a learning experience, and added that he was encouraged by Venices resilience after digging such a deep hole early. Unfortunately when youre down 16 against a good team, you use all that energy to get back, he said. And we got back. But then youre left with no bullets in the barrel, so to speak. Thats a playoff-type team with playoff-type athletes. And our guys know they can play with them.North Port Sinopoli 13, Gonzalez 13, Deas 11, Miller 10, Barber 9, Thatcher 2, Francis 2 Venice Marino 11, MacFarlane 10, Store 9, Marksbury 8, Cokley 5, Whitney 2Email: RSmith@VeniceGondolier.comBobcats length overwhelms VeniceBy ROB SMITHSPORTS EDITOR SUN PHOTOS BY JUSTIN FENNELLVenices Jake MacFarlane connects on a threepointer in the second quarter.

12A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 local government that utilized one. In short, the city may have been convening a committee for years that might have been construed to fall under the Sunshine Law. No one ever challenged that. The problem is (the city) regulation requires it to be a Sunshine meeting, said Persson. I want to be very clear. Calling them a committee, that is a red ag for someone concerned about Sunshine Law. Its a huge perception issue. For as long as anyone can remember, the Venice mayor has gotten together with the city manager and city clerk to nalize the agenda. Under the Sunshine Law, members of the same decision-making committee cannot speak about city business outside a meeting for which public notice is given. The city Agenda Committee is generically referred to in the city code, but theres no language about how the committee is formed or how seats are designated. Because it makes nal decisions albeit simple ones like when and where to hold council meetings, as well as setting the agenda it could be construed to fall under the state Sunshine law, Persson said. For example, deciding to delay consideration of a hot-button issue could be construed as political maneuvering. The x, Persson said, is to either disband the committee altogether and give the task of setting the agenda to the city clerk, or formalize it as a committee that falls in the Sunshine. As it stands, any council member can propose an agenda item. Its been the mayors task to make sure theres enough background material regarding the issue placed in agenda packets for council members to have a meaningful discussion. In the past, on occasion there were complaints by individual members who felt they were unable to get their items onto the agenda, but that hasnt been the case more recently. For the past month the city held a dry run, were it to do away with the committee. Setting of the council agenda was placed in the hands of the city clerk alone. Council members said they had no complaints. Formalizing the committee, on the other hand, would require public notice of meetings, possibly causing further delays in getting items on the agenda. But it would bulletproof the agenda setting procedure, Persson said. Holic raised another concern with formalizing the committee. Because the Sunshine Law requires that members of the same committee cannot speak to each other about an issue that is likely to come before them in the foreseeable future, wouldnt that mean the mayor would be unable to speak to the city manager and city clerk outside a publicly noticed meeting? (That means) I cannot talk to them about any thing that would come up in a committee meeting, which is everything, Holic said, making it impossible to conduct city business effectively. Persson agreed. What they nally decided upon was to leave the Agenda Committee in place, but strip it of its decision-making authority. With no decisions being made, Persson said, the committee would essentially be considered a staff meeting not subject to the Sunshine Law. That option keeps the mayor in the loop and in charge, something a number of council members said is important. This is the mayors party, said Council Member Dave Sherman. Hes running the show.

VENUE 3B SOUTH TRAIL 4B AROUND TOWN 8BWEEKEND EDITION/WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2013 CONTACT US KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR 941-207-1000 kcool@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERSOUR TOWN It does not always take a village. That is especially true when two women with a common goal team up. Venice Art Centers enhanced Garden Court began as the vision of two longtime community benefactors Julia Hyman and Kathi Cellura. Located on the east side of the building, the area and its twin courtyard were underused. Our main objective was to have a courtyard that could be used by community organizations and individuals for fundraising events, birthday parties and bridal showers, Hyman said. We did a lot of brainstorming. That objective arose after six months of planning and a major change in the direction of the project. With the plan in place, Hyman and Cellura nalized their budget, ordered furniture and arranged for artist Coleen Henry to enhance the area with trompe loeil (fool the eye) painting. We were looking for low maintenance so no one has to come in and water anything, Hyman said. VAC director Mary Morris had the courtyard area cleaned and power-washed while Hyman and Cellura ordered umbrella tables, umbrellas and chairs and talked to Henry about her part in the project. Within days, Henry created the look of ivy climbing up the columns that enhance the space. To the casual observer, it looks like real ivy but meets the does not need watering requirement. Henry painted the historical mural on the back of the press building of the Venice Gondolier Sun and another large mural at the Francis T. Bourne Jacaranda Public Library in Venice. The historic mural can be seen by anyone using the Venetian Waterway Park or cruising the Intracoastal Waterway in the area as well as by anyone heading west over the Venice Avenue Bridge. Both Cellura and Hyman were at the center daily to check on the progress of the project. From the beginning this has been a joint inspiration, which they planned, designed and implemented on their own initiative, VAC board chairman Ron Cairo said at the dedication of the space last month. Hyman also arranged to have one of her own works of art, Oceana, spruced up. Oceana is a cast bronze sculpture of two sh with roe. It was commissioned in 1999 by the then Venice Foundation (Gulf Coast Community Foundation) for installation at the center. Oceana looks as fresh and new today as it did in 1999. Funding for the project also was provided by the two women. A sign hanging above the entrance features the name Garden Court and the words: Gifted by Julia Hyman and the Kathleen F. Cellura Foundation. I feel it is important to show what two women can do, Cellura said. The space had its rst test last month when the VAC used the space for buffet service during its Sea Venice Seafood Festival, which was held Two women, one visionBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR New umbrella tables, umbrellas and chairs will be handy for the various functions that may be planned for the Venice Art Centers recently renovated Garden Court. The ivy climbing the Garden Court pillar and other ivy in the Venice Art Centers renovated Garden Court area never needs watering. It is a trompe loeil work by artist Coleen Henry. SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOLKathi Cellura, left, and Julia Hyman stand behind Oceana, a cast bronze sculpture of two sh and roe by Hyman which was commissioned in 1999 by the Venice Foundation (today known as Gulf Coast Community Foundation) for the Venice Art Center.VISION | 5 Toy cars are on the Christmas lists of many 6-year-olds, but what Tianna Rivera and her family need is a van. A real one. The Glenallen Elementary School rst-grader has spinal muscular atrophy a form of muscular dystrophy that affects the muscles used for crawling, walking, head and neck control and swallowing. She cant walk or raise her hands in the air. When her family goes out, Tianna is carried from her motorized wheelchair to a car seat. Her mom, Alexandra, loads a manual wheelchair into their Toyota Corolla because the 350-pound motorized chair doesnt t. Alexandra has injured her rotator cuff by lifting her 79-pound daughter so often. I push Tianna around in her manual wheelchair when we go to the store, she said. If we had a wheelchair-accessible van, Tianna could roll herself in and out of it. She would be so independent when we go to places. I would love to see what she would do at Toys R Us if she were free to go anywhere she wanted. To help make Tiannas dream come true, Alexandra launched a website to tell her daughters story and explain her quest for the new van. She also sells T-shirts with Tiannas picture on them as an ongoing fundraiser. She asks people to post a photo of them wearing the shirt. My husband, Victor, designed a (Beast Mode) T-shirt for himself, and so many people asked him if they could buy one that we began selling them, Alexandra said. So far, we raised $6,400 toward the van. The family rented a booth at the festival following the Poinsettia Parade at Dallas White Park. Tianna has done a little fundraising on her own to help buy the van. One Sunday, we were invited to the North Port Moose Lodge for dinner, Alexandra sad. After dinner, Tianna sang You are my Sunshine a cappella. The crowd loved her and donated $500 by passing around a hat. They have adopted her and call her their daughter. The lodge has been helping the family when possible. Recently, Tianna and her sisters, Aiyana, 11, and Destiny, 13, and baby brother, Radanez, 4, were invited for breakfast with Santa. Santa gave Tianna a guitar. Her brother and sisters also received presents. They had to walk as Tianna rode in her chair a mile each way to get to the Moose lodge, including crossing U.S. 41 twice because Tiannas father took the Toyota to work. Wheelchair vans are so expensive, Alexandra said. It would probably be like $20,000, which is my goal. I am hoping to raise enough money to get one by April 1, because Tianna has major spinal surgery on April 9. She has six doctors appointments leading up to the surgery. Tianna has to have a six-hour operation because she developed scoliosis. Everyone who has SMA gets scoliosis, Alexandra said. Her spine is curving at 74 degrees. Its getting to the point where her organs are being pushed to the side. Its just not safe for her anymore. It has to be done. Her disease keeps progressing and getting worse. We want to make her as comfortable as possible. I just dont have many resources. I would like to learn more about whats out there to help my daughter. For more information, call 941-416-3322.

WELL-BEING 2B WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2013 CONTACT US 941-207-1102 ablackwell@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS The public and business leaders are welcome to attend the Tobacco Free Partnership of Sarasota Countys monthly meeting Thursday, Dec. 19, 10-11:30 a.m. at HealthFit, 5880 Rand Blvd., Sarasota. Agenda items include an information session for employers interested in becoming a tobacco-free business, including an overview of products and services available at no cost. Endof-the-year recognitions will be presented to individuals and businesses that have helped in the effort to create a tobacco-free Sarasota County in 2013. Pine View Schools Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) will debut its 2014 Kick Butts Day public service announcement. The Science behind a Cigarette was selected as the national winner of the 2014 Kick Butts Day contest, held by the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids. The Tobacco Free Partnership of Sarasota County is excited to welcome new and returning community members and leaders who are passionate about working toward denormalizing tobacco use, reducing exposure to secondhand smoke and creating lasting policy change to reduce tobacco-related death and disease throughout Sarasota County, said Jeanette Robinson, tobacco prevention specialist with the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County. These bimonthly meetings are free and open to the public. For more information, call Robinson at 941-8612805 or email Jeanette. Robinson@FLHealth.gov.Tobacco Free Partnership meetsFROM SARASOTA COUNTY COMMUNICATIONS PGT Industries, the nations leading supplier of impact-resistant windows and doors, donated $5,000 to Sarasota Countys Children First as its year-end contribution to the organization. PGT embraced the local nonprot at the start of 2013 and has supported its efforts throughout the year with service work, fundraising and the December donation. Earlier in the year, 35 PGT employees spent a day completing much-needed maintenance and landscaping projects at two Children First facilities in Sarasota. PGT Vice President Debbie LaPinska organized the work day event, which included time to interact with the children and staff. More recently, PGT was a sponsor of the Flip-Flops and Fashion luncheon, as well as the rst annual Rockin Lobster dinner and silent auction. Were proud to be able to provide assistance to such a wonderful organization, said LaPinska. Part of our community outreach mission is nding an organization to assist and continuing that support through the year. We were thrilled to have PGTs help this year, said Philip Tavill, president and CEO at Children First. We want to provide assistance to as many children as possible in Sarasota County. Having business support offsets some of the cuts weve recently experienced. PGT is one of the largest employers in Sarasota County and a pioneer in impact-resistant windows and doors. Children First is a private, charitable, nonprot organization that serves Sarasota children and their families with the ultimate goal of providing kindergarten readiness. Founded in 1961, Children First offers full-day preschool, infant and toddler care, and nutritional and health care assistance to low-income children ages birth to 5 years old at 13 sites located throughout Sarasota County. For additional information about Children First contact Angie Stringer at astringer@childrenrst. net or 941-953-3877, ext. 124.PGT donates to Children FirstFROM CHILDREN FIRST Samaritan Counseling Services of the Gulf Coast (SCSGC) and the University of South Florida Health Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences announce a new psychiatry fellowship with a subspecialty in spiritually integrated treatment (SIT). Academically sponsored by the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, the year-long SIT fellowship emphasizes the healthy integration of spirituality into the traditional training in psychiatry. It represents the addition of a new eld in psy chiatry and an important rst step for Samaritan and USF to more fully integrate spirituality into psychiatric training, said David Wachtel, chairman of SCSGC, an accredited network partner of the Samaritan Institute that spearheaded and will begin piloting the rst SIT fellowship next year. Over the years, scientic literature and our patients have clearly demonstrated the importance of faith in the healing process, he said. More than 82 percent of people seeking counseling in our centers indicate they would like to talk about spiritual concerns with their counselor, yet only a small fraction of clinical training programs for psychiatrists offer courses in spirituality. Fortunately, with the support of the Samaritan Institute, USF Health and community donors, weve created a rst-ofits-kind fellowship, one that will allow a board-eligible or certied psychiatrist to participate in a year-long training experience that combines not only classic and contemporary theory and research, but also clinical wisdom from the eld of SIT. SIT training is now offered on a limited basis in select training programs across the country. The SIT fellowship addresses the need for more intensive training for psychiatrists, said Francisco Fernandez, M.D., professor and chair of USF Health Psychiatry. Psychiatry has a history of ignoring, dismissing spiritual experience as a sign of emotional imbalance, neurosis or psychosis. Over the past 20 years, this is changing. As an example, Fernandez cites that in the American Psychiatric Associations treatment guidelines, inquiry into spiritual life and faith are welcomed and respected. Also, the new International Classication of Diseases includes a code for spiritual or religious problems and counseling. We are excited to partner with the Samaritan Fellowship to teach integrated spirituality and psychiatryFROM SAMARITAN COUNSELING SERVICESSAMARITAN | 3 479894 Pick Your Favorite Sea Venice Statue The Venice Gondolier Sun will print pictures of five Sea Venice statues each issue for nine consecutive editions and a final ballot featuring the nine semi finalists.

SOUTH TRAIL 4B WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2013 CONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS Maria Myroslava Tanczak-Dycio was born in the tiny village of Rybnyky in the western part of Ukraine. It was an idyllic setting, and she had a happy childhood. After her father and mother had wed, he became a Catholic priest, which was permitted by the Ukrainian Church. The future looked promising. All that happiness was shattered on Sept. 1, 1939, as the Nazi Blitzkrieg stormed across Poland, conquering that country in a mere six weeks. For the next six years, she and her family underwent countless horrors under communism and fascism, but managed to survive the ordeal. Now 91, Tanczak-Dycio, and co-author Martha Stevens-David, have collaborated on a new book titled My Lifes Journey from Ukraine to Maine. Her compelling story details not only the inhumanity of war, but also her personal battle to fulll her lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. From 1939 to 1941, Ukraine was ruled by Russian communists. Anyone who was educated or held a position of authority, such as Tanczak-Dycios father, was kept under constant surveillance by the KGB, the Russian secret police. The Russians took everything from us food, gold, cows, horses and chickens, she said. They killed many of my relatives and friends. I had a cousin who was deported to a labor camp in Siberia. The conditions there were horrible. Then, on June 22, 1941, German dictator Adolf Hitler broke the NonAggression Pact he had signed with Russian leader Joseph Stalin and invaded the Soviet Union. As the Russians ed east, the full scale of their anger was unleashed upon the village. Residents were taken forcibly from their homes, never to be seen again. Tanczak-Dycios father had to go into hiding to prevent being captured. In the city of Lviv, another cousin who was also a priest was taken into custody and murdered, as an example for others. When the German soldiers arrived, we thought it would be better, she said. They were nice at rst. Then they went to the Eastern Front to ght. Then the Gestapo (German secret police) arrived. They were as bad as the KGB. As the ghting on the Eastern Front continued, Tanczak-Dycio said, the Gestapo would arrive in trucks, surround the schools and drag the young boys out to join the German Army. Older people were shipped off to cities in Germany such as Berlin, Hamburg and Nuremburg, where they cleaned the streets because of the shortage of manpower. Hitler was ghting on too many fronts, she said. A lot of the men were dying or were wounded. Tanczak-Dycio said the German occupation force discriminated against the Ukrainians by not allowing them to eat in German restaurants or use German bathrooms, and forcing them to ride in the back of the trolley. We were segregated, like the African-Americans were in this country, she said. While staying with her uncle, they learned that the Russian Army was driving the Germans from Stalingrad and pushing west. Her family decided to load whatever belongings they could and make their way south through the Carpathian Mountains to Slovakia. For three days and nights they traveled, sleeping in the grass and moving to avoid being shot at by the Czech or Polish Underground. When they reached the village of Margetsany, she was reunited with her parents. They also had ed, fearing Russian reprisals. That serenity was broken when the Russians began closing in on the village. Early one morning, the family left through an open window and were homeless once again. Crammed into cattle cars, they traveled to Strashof, a labor camp that was bombed by American aircraft nearly every night. Ravaged by bed bugs and lice, and with only bread and margarine and foul-smelling soup to eat, they somehow pulled through. It was a living hell, she said. One day, Tanczak-Dycio watched as a Gestapo prison guard stomped out a re that was warming up a can of milk for a young womans baby. The woman began to cry, telling him that her baby would starve, she said. He turned and walked away. After months of moving from refugee camp to refugee camp, and dodging the nightly bombing missions, Tanczak-Dycio and her family made it to Erlangen, Germany, when World War II ended in May 1945. Through the assistance of the U.S. Embassy, she was able to enroll in the university to begin her medical studies. Although she was treated like a second-class citizen because of her Ukrainian heritage, she persevered and graduated in 1949. During that time, she met and married another medical student, George Dycio, and, on Oct. 21, 1950, exactly one year after she was married, the couple came to the United States. They reunited with her parents, who had relocated to the U.S. months earlier. She went to work in a dress factory, earning 50 cents an hour, and attended night school to learn English. Once again, however, Tanczak-Dycio was met with discrimination when she could not get accepted to a hospital. I put in 20 applications, she said. They didnt want me because I was a woman. As bad as the Germans were, 30 (percent) to 40 percent of my medical class there were women. Finally, Tanczak-Dycio and her husband were accepted at Mercy Hospital in Canton, Ohio. In 1957, the couple moved to Lewiston, Maine, where he eventually set up a private practice. She worked at St. Marys Hospital and later Central Maine Medical Center until her retirement in 1997 as a doctor of anesthesiology. She returned to school and took art classes and continues to paint today. After her husbands death, she eventually remarried and moved to North Port. Despite all her achieve ments, there is one that tops Tanczak-Dycios list: American citizenship. I want to tell my readers, she wrote in her book, that you dont really understand the horrors of war until you have lived through it.Ukrainian authors life a dream fulfilledBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENTBOOK SIGNINGDr. Maria Myroslava TanczakDycio will have a book-signing for her autobiography, My Lifes Journey from Ukraine to Maine, at 11:30 a.m. Sunday at St. Marys Ukrainian Catholic Church, 1078 N.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5Bin conjunction with the centers Sea Venice art project. The berglass turtles and dolphins placed throughout Venice are the stars of that project. The sea creatures will remain in place until April 2014 when they will be sold at auction at Venice Yacht Club, with proceeds going to the VAC. A similar project, Pigs in Paradise, raised more than $250,000 for the center in 2005. Elvis Piggsley sold for $7,800 at auction and now resides in Ohio. Another buyer paid an average of $3,000 each for ve or six pigs he purchased for a summer camp in Pennsylvania. Art center members and friends hope the current Sea Venice project will be as successful. Although a smaller project, the Garden Courtyard is intended to be an ongoing source of revenue for VAC. In the works is a Garden Courtyard brochure Morris is designing. It will include rental fees and other information for those groups and individuals who hope to use the space. These two ladies displayed a bond working together as one and produced a courtyard which the Venice Art Center can certainly be proud of, Cairo said. Both women have been longtime supporters of the VAC, including two recent exhibits which were sponsored by Kathi at the VAC. Both have been involved for years in numerous other charitable organizations in and around the Venice area. Cellura gives the proceeds of her book Forever Footprints (published by ExLibris) to the Kathleen F. Cellura Foundation, which supports a variety of causes in the greater Venice and Sarasota area. Hymans work will be featured Jan. 17-Feb. 14 with works by Kurt and Linda Larisch in a show entitled Three Points of View II. There will be an artist reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 17.

Dearborn St., Englewood, Saturday, Jan. 18, 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 19, 2 p.m., to kick off a fundraiser to help pay off the mortgage on the theaters Annex building. Veteran actors Rita Corn and Jack Rabito have generously volunteered to produce and perform the play, which includes mature language. The entire proceeds from these two per formances will go to the campaign to pay off the mortgage. Tickets are $18 each and are available through the box ofce 941-475-6756 or online at LemonBayPlayhouse. com. The Playhouse is deeply indebted to these two ne actors for their generosity in mounting these two benet performances. FundraiserLemon Bay Playhouse, a nonprofit community theater serving the Englewood area for 27 years, is launching the fundraising campaign to help pay off the mortgage on the Annex building. This is the building that the play house has been leasing next door at 80 W. Dearborn St. This space has been in valuable for auditions and rehearsals for upcoming shows while the current play is in production in the theater building. It also provides additional space for classes to meet and storage for costumes and furniture. Because the Playhouse has a history of not carrying a large amount of debt and works hard to eliminate any debt or loans that it incurs as quickly as possible, plans are underway to have a mini-capital campaign to pay off the mortgage in two years. On April 11, 2013, papers were signed for purchasing the Annex. A 10-year mortgage was taken on the property for $85,000. The theater was able to take advantage of the low cost of borrowing and use its own capital to purchase the building. The monthly mortgage payment is lower than the monthly rental fee was. Paying off this mortgage over the next two years will allow the theater to continue to keep ticket prices low, upgrade its present facilities and plan for further expansion as outlined in the strategic plan developed in 2012. The presentation of The Gin Game is the first phase of the campaign. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play by D.L. Coburn is a dramatic comedy intended for mature audiences. Fonsia and Weller, two residents in a nursing home, develop a friendship while playing gin. Fonsia is new to the game; Weller is an expert. Fonsias beginners luck drives Weller to exasperation. A confrontation ensues. During the continual shuffling and playing of cards, they slowly come to grips with what is left of their lives in their old age.

All Sarasota County K-12 public school teachers are eligible to apply for awards of up to $500 through the Edge of Excellence Classroom Grants program. These funds go beyond what tax dollars provide, giving teachers the tools, materials and supplies they need to develop innovative enrichment projects and try new teaching techniques. The Education Foundation raises the money, sponsors workshops for teachers and organizes community grant-reading sessions. Grant readings give citizens a connection to area classrooms and a chance to learn more about trends and challenges in teaching.

Teachers can also apply for larger awards through the Education Foundations Exploration Grants program. Area arts, history and science organizations have developed educational experiences tied to state academic standards and curriculum plans. These explorations are posted on a public website, EdExploreSRQ.com, launched in 2011 by Sarasota County Schools and The Patterson Foundations Cultural Connections initiative.

Exploration Grants help teachers make these experiences possible for students. Grants of up to $5,000 are awarded to teachers who develop the most compelling proposals. The Patterson Foundation continues to match new or increased gifts for Exploration Grants, up to a total of $500,000. Half of the match will fund current grants. The other half is invested in an endowment to sustain these grants in the future. Funding for Edge of Excellence and Exploration Grants is provided by individuals, families, civic groups, businesses and foundations.

AROUND TOWN 8B WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2013 CONTACT US FRAN VALENCIC SOCIAL COLUMNIST franvalencic@comcast.net SUN NEWSPAPERS Members of the Sertoma Club of Venice made spirits bright for about 500 families, serving breakfast and giving everyone a chance for photos with Santa at the YMCA. Mrs. Claus, Lori Kowalski, added to the sparkle and gave each child a stuffed animal from the Wells Fargo toy shop. Bill Willson took photos and a dedicated crew kept four printers busy processing them. A nice surprise at the breakfast was a visit by longtime former club member Mick Gardner, who now lives in the Carolinas. Mick started the breakfasts with Santa many years ago, as well as a Christmas Card Lane at the YMCA that ran its course. Every Sertoma member who participated in this event earned his or her wings for doing yeomans work. Santa, aka Richard Appell, gets an added ho, ho, ho for cheerfully greeting several hundred boys and girls.Holly, Jolly PartyBigs and Littles celebrated a special time together at the Big Brothers Big Sisters Christmas Party at the Royal Coachman RV Resort in Nokomis. Joy Mahler, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Gina Taylor, ofcial photographer and go-to person, enjoyed seeing the smiles as children enjoyed a day of joy, Helping the Royal Coachman volunteers were students from Venice High. The members of the Interact Club taught everyone a few new dances. Every person connected with this party proved its the season to be jolly.HanukkahCentennial Park in downtown Venice was the spot for celebrating the eighth day of Hanukkah. About 100 people from Chabad of Venice & North Port and their friends were on hand and enjoyed matzo ball soup and delicious latkes. There was plenty of music and dancing and a proclamation by Venice Mayor John Holic. Belated Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends.Some of our bestThe special people of this week are the volunteers from Royal Coachman who gave a sensational Christmas party for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Everyone there was singing, dancing, eating and jingling all the way. All week the group was baking and getting gifts ready for the afternoon. They came early to set things up in their rec hall and decorate. They served food, cleaned up and packaged leftover cookies in small bags for takeout. Outside, more volunteers helped with trafc control and parking. Everyone remembered this is the best time of the year. The crew from the Royal Coachman are among the people who make Venice a great place to live.Santa, Sertoma make a great teamFRAN VALENCIC SUN PHOTOS BY FRAN VALENCICVeronica Meurs carefully prints photos of Santa at the annual Sertoma breakfast with Santa at the YMCA.

December 18 24, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 For the past two weeks Ive been working with former Lets Go! editor Casey Ortlieb to pre pare for my new position, but in all honesty, it hadnt hit me that Im actually the editor of Lets Go! until now. Or around now This is a big deal for me because I started out working for the Sun newspapers for free. Yup. Thats right. I loved the newspaper industry so much that everyday after school I would spend hours in the North Port office with Community News Editor Elaine Allen-Emrich working on any story she would assign me. Elaine took me under her wing and showed me the ropes until my three years of being an intern came to an end when Nathan Lane, copy desk manager, hired me to design the daily North Port Sun section in 2008. In these past eight years with the Sun, Ive worked on many different projects whether it required me to be a photographer, reporter or designer I was always up for the challenge. Each project, and, of course, my college education, have given me the skills needed to take on this job. If theres one thing my readers can be certain of, it is that I will continue to work hard to make Lets Go! a fun and entertaining section that you want to read and seek out for the latest on events, arts and travel throughout Southwest Florida. One thing I want you all to keep in mind is that Im always open to suggestions on how to make Lets Go! an even better product. Help me help you! If you know of any upcoming events that could make good features in Lets Go! or you would like to list an event in our product, please dont hesitate to email me at LetsGo@sun-herald.com or gramirez@ sun-herald.com. If email is not your thing, call me at 941-681-3006, or you can drop off a note or flier at the Englwood office, 120 W. Dearborn Street. Until next week! G ABRIELA R AMIREZ Lets Go! Editor If you have not seen Asolo Reps production of Show boat it may already be too late. This production is an adaptation of the 1994 Tony Award-winning revival of what many consider to be Americas rst musical as opposed to an operetta or Vaudeville-type show. It is big so big it spills over the stage of the Mertz Theatre at the FSU Performing Arts Center and into the orchestra seats and even one of the upper boxes. The singing and acting of the mostly Equity players is superb and Noah Raceys elegant choreography is like additional icing on the cake. The story spans the years 1890-1927. The setting is a Mississippi riverboat of that era and the characters range from dock workers to showboat entertainers, including the daughter of the boats captain who marries a riverboat gambler. For tickets ($28-$75), call the box office at 941-381-8000 or 800-361-8388 or visit AsoloRep.org. If you are home during this holiday time, check out the story in this issue about the Kentucky Military Institute documentary which will air on public television Dec. 19, 21, 22, 23, 25 and 28. Tomorrow through Dec. 22, catch Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol on the main stage at Venice Theatre. Tickets are $10-$17. Call 941-488-1115 or visit VeniceStage.com. Now through Dec. 30, stop by the Venice Archives and Museum any Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (10 a.m.-4 p.m.) to see its annual holiday exhibit of wonderful holiday decoration ideas. And while there, consider adding the museum to your holiday gift list. Your donation to the archives will speed progress to completion of the Lord Higel House (the citys oldest house) and of the proposed museum addition to the Triangle Inn, 351 S. Nassau St., Venice.

That's right. On Friday, Dec. 20, the Orioles will present their rst-ever ice show at the Sarasota baseball complex. The stadium will be decked out for the holidays, creating a festive backdrop for this family-friendly event that will feature top skaters and comedic actors who have performed worldwide. We are thrilled to bring this incredible cast and thrilling program to Sarasota in time for the holidays, said Jeb K. Rand, the shows producer. You can sit under the stars at the newly renovated Ed Smith Stadium and watch beautiful skating with exciting jumps and lifts, wrapped up in a feel-good comedic storyline told by Santas elves. This show is sure to delight everyone, from 3 to 103.

Their professional career spanned over 15 years with principal roles in the Ice Capades, Disney on Ice and Stars on Ice (European Tour). From 1998 to 2005, Jeb and Jennifer were the lead ice skaters at Radio City Music Hall in New York City in The Christmas Spectacular starring the world-famous Rockettes. This particular production will feature a stage topped with synthetic ice that will be built along the third base line, which is where the seats for the show will be sold. Tickets will range from $5 to $30 per person for regular seats and $45 for Gold Circle tickets. David Rovine, vicepresident of the Orioles-Sarasota, says that the Ice on the Diamond event is part of a special Orioles program designed to give back to the communities where they are based. "This is part of the Arts in the Ballpark series, which the Orioles are excited to present to the Sarasota com munity as part of our 'Orioles in Sarasota 365' initiative," said Rovine. "Hosting major, public events in addition to baseball at Ed Smith Stadium has been the Orioles' goal since the stadium renovation was completed in 2012. Our community partners in this endeavor have embraced that vision and applied their creativity to shaping aordable family events the public will love." With free and low-cost oerings featuring family-friendly concerts and hands-on activities, the series will appeal to a wide range of tastes. Rovine says that a unique, yet aordable, program like this holiday ice show is just the kind of event he knows people will really enjoy.

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 18 24, 2013 DINING OUT When youre craving New York-style pizza with thin crust, rich sauce and fresh toppings, Bobarinos is the place to go. This family owned pizzeria is a place where everybody helps. My husband, Bobby, my son, Robert, and two of my grandsons love working at the restaurant, and each has a special gift, Dawn Marie Lee said. At thirteen, Robert began learning every aspect of the business. We now call him our 'charge man' as he does everything from hand tossing pizza crust, cooking Italian dishes, and directing the overall operation of the restaurant." Robert's dad, Bobby, specializes in creating rich marinara, carbonara and Alfredo sauces, toppings for an assortment of pasta dishes featured on their menu. Dawn Marie's specialty is making homemade manicotti pasta and lasagna noodles. Specials at Bobarinos include two slices of pizza and a soda for luch at $5, and 2-for-1 dinner with a choice of pasta or pizza, wine, salad and dessert for $24.95 plus tax. To satisfy your sweet tooth, specialty desserts include Italian ice cream, cannoli, zeppole, and vanilla-, chocolateor lemon-cream cakes. Bobarino's also features Italian wine and imported or domestic beer. Englewood residents and visitors to the area who enjoy authentic Italian specialties will be pleased to learn that Bobarino's can serve lunch and dinner in their dining room. If you prefer to dine-in, the restaurant also oers outdoor seating that is both attractive and dog-friendly. "At night our outdoor patio becomes a winter wonderland during the holiday season," said Dawn Marie, whose hand-painted murals adorn the outside walls of their historic building. Her original oil paintings, some inspired by trips to Italy, create warmth and ambiance in the restaurant's cozy dining room. A few years ago, the family added an upstairs residence. "That's when we became known as the Pioneers of Dearborn," joked Dawn Marie. Located on Magnolia Avenue in Olde Englewood Village, Bobarinos is just steps away from W. Dearborn Street, famous for its many community parades and festivals. "We take part in all community events," Dawn Marie said. "During Christmas Walk we donated gift-lled Christmas stockings for boys and girls, and on Dec. 21, we've invited a special guest, Santa Claus, who will be visiting us at Bobarino's from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. He'll arrive in a re truck, escorted by area remen. Anne Marie's father and brothers were remen who escorted Santa in New York City when she was growing up, and she's happy that she can keep the tradition alive in Englewood. Youngsters will be served a free pizza slice while they wait to meet with Santa on Saturday. Bobarino's Pizzeria is located at 20 Magnolia Ave., Englewood. They're open from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

December 18 24, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 7 DINING OUTSometimes, what seems like the worst thing that could happen is actually a blessing in disguise. When Hurricane Charley emerged from the Gulf of Mexico in 2004, Charlotte County took a direct hit and so did John and Pauline Berry. But out of the rubble of that monster storm, they found a new hobby, and subsequently, a new livelihood. "After the hurricane, we lost our house," John Berry said. "Then someone brought us this mahogany dartboard, and I had never played. I got in this (dart) league in Cape Coral, and my wife nagged me for a year and nally said, 'Why don't you open up a pub and put a dartboard in it?'" In February of 2008, that is just what the Berrys did. Ironically, the building they chose for their pub had suered during the hurricane, too. The 1890s structure, which had been used as an ice plant for Charlotte County's shing industry, had lost its roof and one of the walls in the high winds of the storm. But the building's owners decided to rebuild the historic structure instead of tearing it down. With its high ceilings and exposed brick walls, the Berrys thought it was the perfect spot for their new place, The Icehouse Pub. "The whole concept is an authentic British pub," Berry said. "It was set up to be a place to come and play darts, drink beer and eat really good food." Though there are ten regulation-sized dartboards and several leagues who regularly play there, you do not have to be a dart player to enjoy this pub. Darts are played in a separate room from the rest of the casual restaurant/bar and you can even sit out on the patio and watch sports on the big screen, if you choose. There are more than 26 beers on tap, plenty of bottled beers and wine by the glass or the bottle. But Berry says that one of the main attractions at this popular pub is the food. "On the British side of the menu, the biggest seller is the sh and chips, which we can also do grilled or blackened," he said. "On the American side, we have won the best cheeseburger ve years in a row in Charlotte County. We have a small menu, we make everything from scratch and we make it consistently good." And as long-time residents of the Punta Gorda community, who consider themselves fortunate to have been able to come back from a devastating situation, the Berrys also make a conscious eort to give back whenever possible. Last weekend, they held a large dart tournament which was a charity event for Toys for Tots. The pub was a drop-o point for donations and Marines were onsite to collect them. The Icehouse Pub is at 408 Tamiami Trail North, in downtown Punta Gorda, and is open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 12 a.m Sunday. For information about charity events, dart happenings or musical entertainment, visit the Facebook page or the website at www.theice housepub.com, or call 941-575-0866.Ice House Pub offers good food, drinks and dartsBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT DINING OUT Ice House Pub offers good food, drinks and darts Ice House Pub offers good food, drinks and darts Ice House Pub offers good food, drinks and darts PHOTOS PROVIDED BY THE ICEHOUSE PUBThe new outdoor patio added about 60 more seats to the Icehouse Pub.

December 18 24, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 9 AP PHOTOThis image released by Relativity Media shows Casey Aeck in a scene from Out of the Furnace. Out of the FurnaceBy TOM LOVASKOSUN CORRESPONDENTThe definition of bleak, according to Dictionary.com, is without hope or encouragement, depressing and dreary. Its also an accurate description of the film Out of the Furnace. The movie takes place in and around Braddock, Pa., a town built around a once flourishing steel mill. Christian Bale plays Russell Baze, a good guy (sort of) who works in the mill as his world suddenly starts crashing down. His brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) is an Iraq War vet who cant shed his demons as he tries to hold a steady job. Instead, he gets caught up as a participant in a fight game held by a group of really nasty dudes. When he disappears, brother Russell heads off on the wrong path of vigilante justice. At this point he has spent some time in prison, lost his father, and loses his girlfriend (Zoe Saldana) to a cop played by Forest Whitaker. As if this story line wasnt dark enough, we see too many close-ups of the crime ring leader Harlan DeGroat (Woody Harrelson). Forget the old Woody playing the charming bartender from the classic Cheers TV series. Harrelsons character in Out of the Furnace is a backwoods, sleazeball, drug-dealing psycho junkie. This may be his scariest villain yet and hes made a career and a lot of money playing these roles. He should get coal in his stocking this year. Perhaps the cast (also including established actors Sam Shepard & Willem Dafoe) just wanted to play tough guys in a Scott Cooper directed movie. Their acting and Christian Bale is tremendous is excellent throughout the movie. Unfortunately, the survival theme is not only dismal but its also laced with a steady flow of brutal violence, hard drinking, drug use and guys with nothing to lose owing other guys lots of money. Out of the Furnace was filmed entirely on location in Braddock, Pa., and its not a pretty place. It reminded me of a time in my life when I worked labor in a steel mill, a hellish and surreal atmosphere. Around me, there were some terrific, dedicated family men with strong work ethics but there were also some very scary characters. This film takes the vision of a once relevant industry and fades it into nightmarish black. Its the polar opposite of a feel-good film. says Dont Go! MOVIES The Best Man Holiday | Runtime: 2 hr. 2 min. | Rated R for brief nudity, sexual content and language. After nearly 15 years apart, Taye Diggs (televisions Private Practice), Nia Long (Soul Food), Morris Chestnut (Kick-Ass 2), Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), Sanaa Lathan (Conta gion), Monica Calhoun (Love & Basketball), Melissa De Sousa (Miss Congeniality) and Regina Hall (Scary Movie franchise) reprise their career-launching roles in The Best Man Holiday, the long-awaited next chapter to the film that ushered in a new era of comedy. When the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holi days, they will discover just how easy it is for long-for gotten rivalries and romances to be ignited. Thor: The Dark World | Runtime: 1 hr. 51 min. | Rated PG-13 for some suggestive content and intense Sci-Fi Action/Violence Marvels Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvels Thor and Marvels The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

10 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 18 24, 2013 ROAD TRIP CHRISTMAS EDITIONHave it all at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay this Christmas ice show, snow, Santa and possibly even a new baby gorilla. Christmas Town grows bigger each year at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Given the parks ice shows it was only natural for the park to take advantage of all the snow and ice to create Snow World. According to stats from my Busch Gardens insider, 108,000 cubic feet of snow lls SnowWorld. That is much more than the output of dozens of Zambonis scraping multiple ice rinks. Obviously the work of Santas elves, all that snow beckons little ones to come and build some thing, make some snowballs and do some sliding. To keep energy levels high for Christmas Town patrons, the Busch Gardens elves have baked 30,000 cookies and collected 6,000 candy canes for specialty drinks sold only in Christmas Town. For decorations, there are more than 1 million lights and 17,000 poinsettias along Poinsettia Parkway. Plenty of holiday music completes the scene for Christmas Towns nightly visitors. It takes a lot of decorations and a lot of people to transform the 300-acre park into a holiday wonderland. And one very special present is on the way a new baby gorilla expected any minute. Its mother is Pele, an 11-year-old Western Lowland Gorilla. At presstime, the baby was due this month, which would make a most special present for Busch Gardens zookeepers as well as for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP). While many Busch guests are more interested in the blood-pressure raising coasters, many Busch regulars go there for the zoo which has been a mainstay since the parks beginning. According to a release about Pele, the mother-to-be came to Busch Gardens in February 2010 from the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas. The suspected sire is Bolingo who was, in 2005, the rst successful gorilla birth in Busch Gardens history. See the parents in Myombe Reserve. Once the baby gorilla arrives, Pele may be busy doing her maternal duty and out of sight for awhile. The lowland gorillas have been subject to study at Busch Gardens since 2004. Busch Gardens also supports study of the species in the more remote Nouabale-Ndoki National Park in Africas northern Congo through the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. In addition to the ice show, there are a total of six holiday shows to see while visiting the park for Christmas. But time is of the essence as Christmas Town festivities last only until Dec. 23. Christmas Town event tickets are $40 for adults and $10 for child Dec. 18 and 19, with adult prices increasing to $50 for the nal four nights. Tickets to Mrs. Claus Family Feast are $22 for adults and $16 for children. For unlimited entry nightly from now through Dec. 23, admission is $89 for adults and $29 for children. Purchase tickets online for the best prices. If you buy tickets at the park, expect to pay $60 for the evening event.

By amazing festive coincidence, the snow will fall right on the corner of Marion Avenue and Taylor Street, adjacent to the large Christmas tree. What a great opportunity to bring kids of all ages to create selfies in the snow to send to friends up North to show them how we celebrate cold weather in Southwest Florida. A direct call to Santa has been made, in the hopes hell be able to swing by as well. So be at the tree at 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Dec. 19 (Gallery Walk) and 20, and bring out that inner kid in you!

December 18 24, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 13 EVENTS THIS WEEK No small town does a boat parade better than Punta Gorda, which manages to stage two of them every year before the Christmas holidays, each attended by tens of thousands of holiday revelers. The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Parade oers viewers the majestic sight of more than 30 lighted boats parading around beautiful Charlotte Harbor, with up-close looks at several locations like Harpoon Harrys and Laishley Park. The Punta Gorda Isles Boat Parade, always held the Saturday before Christmas Eve, is a much dierent event because it is held entirely within the canal system of PGI. This presents both chal lenges and opportunity for organizers Tom Little and Harris Bowers. Its grown to 40 to 50 boats each year, just about the limit, according to Little. Any more boats would slow the pace and wear out crews and captains. The more conned venue also means no majestic views are to be had of the entire line of boats. The organizers instead have learned to take advantage of the more intimate setting and make it the main drawing card of the parade. Little said, Its an unequivocal fact that the boats are from 20 to 50 feet o the seawall, and folks there can talk back and forth with the people on the boats. Thats what makes our parade dierent. That communication has increased the past few years as boaters have learned to do more than just add lights and canned Christmas music to their vessels. Several years ago, Harris himself went with a theme, A Christmas Story, on his boat and immediately noticed a dierence in the crowd reaction. He said, When I changed from lights to a theme, I got tremendous cheers from the crowd. What really struck me the most was people saying thank you. I never got that before. More captains have taken notice and are decorat ing their boats and crews with a theme in mind. Boaters are guring out what to do to entertain the crowd ... The crowd is there to be entertained, and we are entertaining them. We place great emphasis in our workshop on animated displays, music and entertaining the crowd, Little said of the change in approach. The workshop is held in November in conjunction with the chamber parade organizers and drew 100 participants this year who learned its not dicult to crank their boats up a notch on the entertain ment scale. Its really easy, Bowers said. All you need is some mesh, PVC pipe, black spray paint, tie wraps and an idea. You can make dolphins, reindeer, whatever you like. The houses and parties along the route have reciprocated in kind. Homeowners throw parties the night of the parade, and the crowd along the route has grown to 10,000 to 15,000 people. Publix deli has its biggest night of the year that night, Bowers said. Think about it; deli platters on both sides of a seven-mile route. Thats a lot of parties. He and Little are going all out to make sure the boaters get the love they deserve. Were going for a chain of lights. The idea is for people to decorate their homes and also do the lots on either side of them if someone is not home or the lot is empty, Bowers said. The goal is to get as many homes lit as we can along the parade route. If it goes by your house, you better put up lights, or its bah humbug on you. The overall theme for this year is Make a Joyful Noise, and the crowd is being urged to contribute its share. We have extended that theme to the crowd, Bowers said. We are encouraging people to bring cowbells, sleigh bells, tambourines and to use them to cheer for their favorite boat. If youre not lucky enough to live on the route or get invited to the worlds longest party, there are plenty of empty lots along the parade route where crowds can gather. Dont forget to bring chairs, food, libations and noisemakers to become part of the party. The parade kicks o around 6 p.m. at Albatross Drive and Bal Harbor Boulevard and lasts several hours. Bowers asked attendees to remember this while watching the boats go by: The boaters are there for the crowd, and the crowd is there for the boaters No gifts, no prizes, no trophies, no awards. The only thing boaters are getting is cheers and applause.PHOTO PROVIDED BY RICHARD GREENWALDBoats in the Punta Gorda Isles Boat Parade are only a few feet away, allowing the boaters and crowd to interact and make a joyful noise.

14 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 18 24, 2013 Some Christmas traditions are nearly becoming etched in stone. Venice Theatres annual production of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol is one of the most enduring holiday traditions here on the Culture Coast. It has become a family aair for many in the community theaters family. This year is the 14th consecutive year of what is also becoming a family aair for the theater. A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite things to do each season, director Murray Chase said in a recent release. Young people return each year, playing new roles as they get older. College students plan their Christmas breaks around the show. And entire families work together in the cast and crew. Its a wonderful tradition thats been a part of our theatre for almost 15 years. Chase is the theaters executive director. In keeping with family traditions at Venice Theatre, Chases wife Lori is the theaters event coordinator. This version of A Christmas Carol features music by the late E. Susan Ott, with lyrics and additional music by local teacher director and writer Scott Keys has outlasted every other version presented in this area for a good reason it sticks to Dickens story and enhances it with excellent music. Add Chases directing skills and the depth of experience in the cast and one has a sure winner every year. Sharing Chases 12-year history with the show is music director Michelle Kasanofsky, actor/singer Eric Watters as Ebenezer Scrooge, Lori Chase as the voice of the ghost of Christmas Past and, for nearly 12 years, Lisa Hunek in a variety of roles. Hannah Betterton started out as one of the children but for the past six years has been the shows stage manager. Father and daughter Je and Katie DunnRankin have appeared in several productions. Where else can old folks like me dance and sing on stage with young people performing for the rst time? Watters said. Their energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Appearing for the rst time this year is Reef Krug as Tiny Tim. Noelle Oxbow serves as assistant chore ographer for her rst year with the production. Venice Theatre is at 140 W. Tampa Ave., on the island in downtown Venice. The box oce is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and one hour before showtime. A Christmas Carol will run from Dec. 19-22, with evening performances at 7 p.m. and matinees at 2 p.m. on Dec. 21-22. Tickets are $10 for students and $17 for adults. Continuing through Dec. 22 in the Yvonne T. Pinkerton Theatre is the Cabaret pro duction of The Marvelous Wonderettes. Opening next on the main stage is Boeing-Boeing. which will run from Jan. 14-Feb. 2. Tickets are $10-$28 for Cabaret and Mainstage productions.

December 18 24, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 15 THINGS TO DOFor three thousand years, people in the Far East have known the benets of a specic type of massage called Ashiatsu. With a Japanese name that translates into "foot pressure," Ashiatsu is a bodywork form that applies ther apeutic pressure, mostly from the therapist's feet, to promote health and wellbeing. The therapists can also use their knees, elbows, palms, and n gers during this treatment, which typically includes stretching, stimulation or sedation of acupressure points/meridians, and structural alignment techniques. In a variation of this ancient therapeutic approach, The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota has developed a new treatment called Aerial Silk Massage, and at $165 for a 50-minute session, it's already becoming one of the most popular services there. During traditional Ashiatsu massage, a therapist holds onto ceiling bars to maintain her balance while using her feet to perform deep tissue work on the clients back and body. In a nod to Sarasotas circus history as the winter home of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, during the Aerial Silk Massage, the therapist will hold onto aerial silks similar to what a circus aerialist would use during a routine to stabilize herself. The Aerial Silk Massage combines the art and healing properties of Ashiatsu with a truly engaging experience of mind and body for a treatment that helps not only aches and pains, but also the guests energy or chi, said Veljko Savic, Spa director of The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota. This treatment may seem unconventional, but the use of body weight and gravity of the therapist make the Aerial Silk Massage the best way to get a true, deep tissue treatment and body realignment. Guests who visit the hotels spa will also be invited to relax and unwind in the Spas relaxation room, where light snacks and fresh fruit-avored waters are available. A therapist will lead the guest into the candlelit Aerial Silk Massage room, where there will be dramatic, beautiful silk panels suspended from the ceiling. The guest will then be asked to lie on the massage bed on the oor, and the therapist will start the massage with long, deep strokes that may feel like a dance on the back. Later in the massage, the therapist will concentrate on specic areas of the body by controlling her weight distribution and using the silks as a stabilizer. Each guest can choose a dierent therapeutic massage oil, like lavender, eucalyptus or Florida orange and one of four music categories: water, nature, ambient and multicultur al, to customize their experience. Ashiatsu massage helps relieve pain and stress, treat spinal problems and improve posture. It is particularly popular among sports enthusiasts, whose musculature may prevent penetration during a regular hand massage. Our Aerial Silk Massage will help guests transcend the str ess of their lives and focus on the maintenance of their most important resource, their own bodies, Savic said. While we want our guests to have unique, unforgettable experiences, we also want them to leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to take on their lives. In addition to the Aerial Silk Massage, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota oers more than 100 wellness and anti-aging treatments using the benecial properties of ocean minerals, elixirs and essential oils to restore, rejuvenate and refresh the body. These treatments can help enhance circulation and energy ow, leaving guests rebalanced. Using only natural and organic ingredients in the Spa, the menu of services reects a variety of traditional products such as hydrotherapy and mud masques, alongside innovative, nontraditional treatments, like the Aerial Silk Massage. The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota is is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. It is located at 1111 Ritz-Carlton Drive. Spa services are available from 9 a.m. to 6p.m. by appointment. For more information, or to book a service, please call 941-309-2090.Sarasota Ritz offers aerial silk messagesBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT During the aerial silk massage treatment, the client lies on a stable, comfortable surface on the oor.PHOTOS PROVIDEDWith aerial silk massage, massage therapists use silks to stabilize themselves during the treatment.

If you think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than noon this Friday, and well publish your name as the winner with the correct answer in next weeks issue of Lets Go! Please include your name and city. LIVE MUSICI try to pick music that makes you feel good and makes people want to dance. Its that simple, Debra Biela stated. And thats exactly what Bielas band, Deb and The Dynamics has been doing for 10 years at various venues in Southwest Florida. The six-piece band plays a mixture of blues, soul, rhythm and blues, and rock n roll. According to Biela, lead vocalist and bass guitarist, the bands name was chosen because it seemed to best describe what is most important to the band feeling the music, and playing it with feeling is dynamic. The band has produced ve CDs that include covers and originals. A new recording of all original songs, New Orleans, will be released in 2014. Originally from Connecticut, Biela played her rst gig at age 16. She credits her hard-working ethics to her Italian heritage. At age 18, she hit the road as lead singer and bass guitarist with an all-female band, Moxxie for four years. Biela then settled in Virginia beach where she joined The Rh ythm and Blues All-Stars, an eightpiece band that shared the stage with the Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, and others. Four years later, playing with some of the soulfulist musicians I ever met, the band split up, Biela stated. After moving to Florida, she was oered to tour the U.S., Europe and Japan by blues artist, Deborah Coleman, who was a member of the former Moxxie group in Virginia. They performed to sold-out audi ences for four years. Biela was featured on Colemans albums, Living on Love and Soul Be It. One of the original members of the Dynamics, Newt Cole, tenor and alto saxophone, and vocalist, is from Detroit, Mich. He formed a seven-piece band, Newt and the Salamanders, that opened for artists such as Average White Band and Mitch Ryder. The band won the Best Rhythm and Blues Band award at the Detroit Music Festival in 1985. Cole played with two other bands in Michigan before moving to Florida in 1999. Donald Hulgas, baritone saxophone and vocalist, was born and raised in a musical family in Pittsburgh, Pa. My dad bought a brand-new tenor saxophone, and when I opened the case, I was hooked, he said. Hulgas moved to Florida in 1982 with his family, and he played with Rock and Soul Review band in 1990. Drummer Nick Longobardi, aka Nick the Stick, a Brooklyn native, started rocking the drums at age 12. While attending a Led Zeppelin concert, he was inspired by the power and energy of the drummer, John Bonham. Longobardi played with several bands in New York and Boston, and has been playing with the Dynamics for over ve years.Deb and the Dynamics will make you want to dance By SHIRLEY GEORGESUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTO PROVIDEDIn center is Debra Biela, lead vocals and bass, not in order are Nick Longobardi, drums; Dan Keady, vocals and guitar; Michael Baer vocals and keyboard; Newt Cole, tenor sax; Donald Hulgas, baritone sax.DANCE | 19 478794 Special Overnight Package For Two Guests includes buffet, show, dancing, luxury hotel room.

December 18 24, 2013 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 19 AROUND TOWNMichael Baer, keyboard player and vocalist, said, Even as a child, my dad said that I would rather practice piano than do anything else. A child prodigy, I havent changed much in that regard. According to the bands website, Baer, with his jazz background lays down Ray Charles, along with other blues and jazz greats, like no other. Dan Keadys musical career started in the Boston area as guitarist and vocalist with several bands. In 1969, he led Fort Mudge Memorial Dump band to a Mercury Records deal, and a successful tour of the school circuit from Cambridge to New York City and Washington, D. C. Later, Keady played with Lovelace Band. After moving to Florida in 1990, he formed the R & B Connection and has played with other local bands before joining the Dynamics. To be a dynamic, you have to give 100 percent at every show, and thats what we do, Biela stated. Deb and the Dynamics was featured in the 2013 Black and Gold Gala, celebrating 50 years of the Charlotte County Animal Welfare League. Also, the band performed at the 2013 14th Annual Florida Blues Festival, Bonita Blues Festival, and Bonita Fourth of July Bash. The band will perform at the 2014 Charlotte Harbor Chili Challenge and Beer Festival on from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Jan. 25.

Do you enjoy hitting your golf ball and strolling down fairways lined by trees and lakes rather than houses and pools? Englewood is a quiet, rural area, which is why so many former Snow Birds choose to live here full time. Myakka Pines Golf Club is Englewood serenity on steroids! In any round of golf, while enjoying our lush fairways and excellent greens, you may see great bald eagles, territorial osprey, bright blue buntings, wise ol owls, sunbathing alligators, pink spoonbill cranes and great blue herons. A member-owned equity club constructed 36 years ago by dedicated, creative and forward thinking members, Myakka Pines Golf Club today offers 27 holes of tournament-qualityconditions, challenging, strategic and fun golf. As a GOLF CLUB rather than a Country Club, the focus and financial investment is all toward the golf course. Greens were reconstructed in 2008 with mini-verde bermuda. Each of the three nines is different and challenging in its own right. And, twenty-seven holes provides the flexibility to accommodate smooth flow on the course by melding tee time and turning golfers based on which course has the best availability at the time. Mickie Zada, the Clubs General Manager said We are able to ensure excellent rounds of golf time as well as enjoyable playing experiences. One of the best golf membership values in the area, Myakka Pines Golf Club offers an equity membership and a one-year non-equity golf pass. Private golf carts may be stored and used at the Club by equity members; one year non-equity golf passes include golf cart fees. All members receive free driving range access and handicap system. Extensive practice areas are available including chipping and putting greens and driving range. As the Clubs PGA golf professional for 25 years, Frank Perilli maintains a well stocked golf shop offering apparel and equipment.

ROACH: Is there a limit as to how much vitamin D should be taken a day? I am 83 years old, have taken Femara for 10 years, have had several r ounds of prednisone (one for longer than a year), and I am getting about 1,950 IU of vitamin D daily. Does that sound right? S.R. ANSWER: V itamin D deciency is common throughout all of North America, and the further north you are, the more likely you are to be decient. Older people are at higher risk, as are those with darker skin or those who arent outside very much. F emara, a medication used for breast cancer, can cause accelerated bone loss, so getting the right amount of vitamin D, which helps keep bones strong, is particularly important. Prednisone, used for innumerable conditions, also causes bone loss, so you are at especially high risk. One study gave everybody on Femara 50,000 units of vitamin D a week about 7,000 units a day, or more than three times what you are taking and found that such an amount of vitamin D was safe and r educed joint pain. So that may be a reasonable dose for someone on Femara. P ersonally, I would r ecommend getting your blood level of vitamin D checked, and base your dose on the result. F inally, most women on Femara are on for only ve years. You might double-check with your oncologist about whether y ou should still be on it. DEAR DR. ROACH: As I am concerned with my health, I recently decided to do some research on what I take as a daily vitamin and what the commercial companies decide to add into their pills. One of them, selenium, was listed as being one of those dietary elements about which doctors really arent sure what it does for the body, but generally was thought to be benecial for the joints and was recommended for short-term usage (I was unable to nd their denition of shortterm). The side effects stunned me, however, and it bothers me that it could contribute to higher risks of contracting diabetes. As I have diabetes in my family tree, I wonder if I should avoid vitamins containing selenium. M.T. ANSWER: S elenium is a mineral, a metal needed in trace amounts in the body. Selenium deciency is certainly associated with problems, including with the immune system and the heart. However, selenium deciency is very rare in the United St ates and Canada, and supplementing people with already adequate amounts of selenium does seem to increase the risk of diabetes. I dont recommend selenium supplementation for healthy people eating a balanced diet, especially for those at higher-than-average risk for diabetes. Inci dentally, a single Braz il nut has more than a days worth of selenium! DEAR DR. ROACH: Hi. I have fallen on both knees and periodically experience pain. Would you recommend ozone injections? If so, are there any risks associated with it? Any insight you provide would be appreciated. G.G. ANSWER: There have been some studies looking at whether ozone injections r educe pain, both in the lower back and in the knee. In itial results look promising, and risks seem to be low. However, I am pretty conservative about new treatments, and I wouldnt r ush to get these injections before further studies have been done.

I love fresh coconut, but after I drain the coconut and crack the shell, it takes major surgery to get the meat out. There has got to be an easier way to do it. Any suggestions? I saw a Samoan in Hawaii use a pointed stick in the ground, but I dont think I can keep one around for just that! Ann S. in H ouston I enjoyed meeting you and your daughter; please give her a hug for me! Tr ying to crack a coconut can drive you nuts! The coconut needs to be baked before the meat is r emoved. P ut the coconut in the ov en (on 350 F) for 1520 minutes. Remove carefully and wrap in a heavy towel. Use a hammer to whack the heck out of it. Just keep hammering away, and it should break into pieces, which makes it easier to remove the meat.The foiled touchDear Heloise: When I cook with aluminum foil, I sometimes notice that there are black specks left on the food after cooking. What causes this, and is it something I need to worry about? Rachel T., via email Dont worry. These specks can be caused when aluminum foil touches food that contains vinegar or salt or that is highly acidic or spicy. Its a reaction between the foil and the food. Its not harmful, and you can safely eat the black specks. But if you would rather not, then just remove them. HeloiseKitchen hintsDear Heloise: While visiting a friend, I asked where she had found the big, wide rubber bands that are so handy for large extension cords, boxes in the pantry, etc. She said that when her rubber gloves develop holes, she cuts across the cuffs to form the wide bands. Not only handy, but a great way to recycle. Another hint is that after dropping a piece of eggshell into a light-colored batter and not nding it, I now keep a stack of disposable, clear plastic cups in the kitchen. When a recipe calls for eggs, I break the eggs into the plastic cup, and if there is a problem, I can solve it and then toss the cup.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: A couple of years ago, my husband informed me that he likes to dress in womens clothing. Since then he has read books, is seeing a counselor, and the reality is, he is transgender. He now w ears his hair long and has long ngernails. I have tried to be understanding and have gone places with him when he is dressed as a woman. He has met other transgender people who have either made the full transition or are content without it. I allow my husband time with these new friends without me. I did feel weird that he was clothes shopping and going to movies with his new friends. I have reconciled with these activities and Im OK with them so far. But I have told him that if he decides to change his gender to female, I will not be able to be married to him. Hes on hormones at the moment and has told me he plans to start testosterone blockers. I love him, Abby, but not the woman side of him. Am I unreasonable to put a boundary on my marriage? He thinks if he slowly eases me into the idea that it will be OK. He says I am his world and I should love him no matter what gender he is. Am I being selsh? SOMEWHERE IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR SOMEWHERE: Y ou appear to be a loving and accepting wife. You may be your husbands world, but his world is changing and along with it, so is yours. It is not selsh to take care of yourself. You did not enter your marriage to be partnered with another woman, and y ou should not be made to feel guilty remaining with one if its not what you want. Some spouses stay together; others just cant. If you havent heard of the Straight Spouse N etwork, it is a condential support network of current or former heterosexual spouses or partners of gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender mates. Its mission is to help straight spouses or partners cope with coming-out issues, and help mixed-orientation couples and their children build bridges of understanding. To learn more about it and nd a support group near you, visit www. straightspouse.org. DEAR ABBY: I have always had an extremely close relationship with my little sister. Last year, I graduated from high school and left for university. It was hard for both of us. My college is an hour away, so even though I live on campus, I try to come home whenever I can to visit on weekends. Lately it seems like my little sister has emotionally distanced herself from me. Sh e doesnt conde in me anymore, shows little interest in my life, and it has gotten to the point where she barely acknowledges me in public. She tells me Im overreacting and to stop being stupid. My mo m says she does this with everyone and that this is typical for a 14-yearold teenager, but it breaks my heart to be so excluded from her life. Is this just a phase I have to learn to deal with and accept? What should I do? SAD BIG SISTER IN SWITZERLAND DEAR BIG SISTER: Your sister is growing up, and part of that process means becoming an individual. Right now she is trying to gure out who she is, apart from the family she loves including you. Because you were so close, she may have felt abandoned when yo u left for college. Let your sister evolve. Shell be back. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at libery them that are bruised. Luke 4:18 The fact that He is the poor mans friend does not mean that He is the rich mans enemy. It is the love of money that is the root of all evil. God is no r espector of persons.
