County jail in Venice to close today


North Port, Venice to discuss facility


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

The arrival of the new year
today marks the shuttering of
the Sarasota County Sheriff's
South County jail in Venice, a
move that will save the SCSO
roughly $1.04 million, accord-
ing to officials.


However, Sheriff Tom Knight
said previously the jail wasn't
closing due to financial issues,
citing a lack of medical and
food services at the facility,
along with the inability to pro-
cess juvenile offenders, as a few
of the reasons for its closure.
There were previously 12 full-
time employees at the holding


facility in Venice, records show,
and it temporarily housed
2,481 arrests in 2012, a number
that decreased from 2011.
Records also show the number
of arrestees being processed at
the facility has been in decline
since 2007, when it held 3,976
arrestees.

From Venice to disaster:


'Beyondpersonal'


Eyewitness


returning


to help

By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER
As the world looked on
in horror at the destruction
caused by Typhoon Haiyan
in the Philippines, Thomas
Guay was flying over it in a
military plane he'd hitched
a ride on, wondering if he'd
ever see his family again.
Guay had been in Bangkok,
Thailand, as the storm ap-
proached in early November,
on an assignment from BMW
Motorcycles, for which he is a
roving ambassador, enticing
prospective purchasers with
tales from the open road.
He wasn't worried about yet
another typhoon approach-
ing the area.
"Typhoons come all the
time," he said. "We have
typhoon parties. It's never a
big deal."
Even after his mother,
Wendy, who lives in Venice,
called with a warning about
the storm, he didn't panic.
He did, however, suggest that
Vanessa and Tank go to a
hotel. Unbeknownst to him,
they didn't.
Haiyan made landfall Nov.
8 as one of the most powerful
storms on record, and he
didn't hear from Vanessa for
four days. Yet he chalked that
up to downed power lines,
still not aware of the storm's
impact.
The repeated cancellation
of flights to the Philippines
made it apparent that Haiyan
had wreaked havoc, but only

when Guay finally flew in
after talking his way onto that
military plane he's a Gulf
War vet could he see just
how bad it was.
"I thought one of two
things," he said. "I'm going
to save my wife or bury my
wife."

Leveled
His ride home from the
airport took him through
streets covered in sludge, past
dead bodies, looters and the
wreckage of familiar places.
People were knocking over
gas pumps so they could dip
gas out of the tanks below, he
said.
When he finally reached
his home in Dolongan, his
wife, Vanessa nine months
pregnant with their second
child and 3-year-old son
Tank were there,
unharmed.
"My house
was fine," he
said. "The house
on the left, the
house on the
right --leveled."
He arrived
on a friend's
motorcycle that
he'd borrowed
and ridden past
military and po-
lice officers who
were confiscat-
ing anything
worth taking
from people on
the road.
He managed
to bring a few
pounds of ham-
burger meat

eaten in four days.
"There is a God," his
mother-in-law told him.
"God bless you."
But making sure his family
was safe was only the first
part of his mission.

Nothing free
After reconnecting with
his family and ensuring their
safety, Guay joined the relief
effort, taking a brief break to
assist in the delivery of Teddy
on Nov. 22. He'd gotten a
quick lesson in child-birthing
knowing that his second son
would be born at home.
He made three relief flights
on a C-130, standing for each
two-hour trip. He said he saw
relief supplies stacked up
undelivered at airports and
being sold in the streets.
"There's nothing free in the
Philippines," he said. "If you
don't have money, you don't
have anything. It was like
that before the typhoon and
it's worse now."
He flew out Dec. 7 on
a "mom and dad mercy
flight," having maxed out his
credit cards buying food and
supplies.
"There was nothing left I
could do there," he said.
By returning to the states,
he thought he could raise
both awareness of the plight
of Samar, the province where
DISASTER 19


SHERIFF ASSUMING PARTIAL DISPATCH FOR VENICE
Starting Thursday, Jan. 2, the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office will be taking over
emergency dispatch services for the Venice Police Department from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.,
seven days a week.
Venice residents should continue to dial 911 for all emergency situations, an SCSO
release states, and should continue to call the VPD's non-emergency number (941-486-
2444) for non-emergency situations. However, between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., calls to the
non-emergency number will be redirected to the Sheriff's Office. Citizens should not
notice a change in service, the release states.
The switch will not affect the North Port Police Department, which plans to keep its
emergency dispatch services in-house.

Airline passenger



from Nokomis



arrested in Maine


STAFF REPORT
A Nokomis woman accused
of throwing things and shout-
ing obscenities over a delayed
flight faces charges in Bangor,
Maine.
Police say Janet Dinardi
ignored an officer's warning
Sunday to settle down before
Allegiant Air informed officers
that the unruly passenger
would not be allowed on her
flight to Florida.
Officers escorted her from
Bangor International Airport
and charged her with criminal
trespass and disorderly conduct.
The 54-year-old Dinardi
posted bail and is due to be ar-
raigned in February. It's unclear


if she retained a lawyer. A call
to Dinardi was not returned.
Dinardi has more than 20
civil and criminal arrest records
in Sarasota County. They
include three DUI convictions.
Her driving license was perma-
nently revoked in Florida years
ago due to the DUIs. She was
convicted in 2008 for driving on
a permanently revoked license.
Dinardi still has one open
case in Sarasota County, filed in
2011, for riding her bicycle with
no or improper lighting.
Other records indicate myr-
iad traffic violations, including
citations for driving an ATV on
the road.
The Associated Press contrib-
uted to this report.


Worrying, searching


but no abduction


By GREG GILES
STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office investigators have "de-
finitively concluded" that no
abduction took place Sunday
evening in the Venice East
neighborhood, according to a
press release issued Monday
evening.
An eyewitness set off a
manhunt Sunday evening after
she said a man ran off with a
child into the woods.
The incident, reported by
a Venice High ninth-grader,


triggered an intensive search
of the Venice East subdivision
in South Venice by the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office dep-
uties, its K-9 Unit, Mounted
Unit, and Air Unit.
Nothing suspicious was
found.
Neighbors went into the
streets with flashlights to help
with the search. They also
found nothing.
According to an incident
report released by the Sheriff's
Office on Monday, the

ABDUCTION
FROM PAGE 1
14-year-old complainant
said she was standing
outside in her driveway
in the 100 block of Golf
Club Lane when she saw
a young female approx-
imately 6 to 8 years old
get snatched up by a
man who came out from
behind the residence.
The child allegedly
screamed, but then
stopped screaming
while being carried away
halfway through the yard
between the homes,
according to the witness.


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014


No suspicious vehicles
were reported in the
area.
The missing child was
described as approxi-
mately 4 foot in height
with short to shoulder
length dark hair, wearing
a white T-shirt and lit
up shoes, and carrying
a flashlight, standing
outside just a few doors
down.
The white male
suspect was described
as 5 foot, 7 inches with a
muscular build, wearing
a navy blue hooded
sweatshirt and jeans. His
face was concealed by
the hood.
The witness said she


did not know the girl, but
said that she was possi-
bly from the neighbor-
hood, according to the
report.
She ran into the house
to tell a friend staying
at her home about
the incident, They, in
turn, told the witness's
mother.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office said there
was a lapse of about
10 minutes before they
decided to call 911.
Deputies cordoned off
the area, blocking the en-
trance to the Venice East
subdivision off U.S. 41. A
door-to-door canvass of
the street was completed,


confirming all children
were home and safe with
their families, according
to Sgt. Sean Brophy, in a
press release.
No one in the local
area has called law en-
forcement to report their
child missing, Brophy
said.
The Venice East
Community Association
board of directors met
early Monday morning.
The possible abduction
was a hot topic, but
nobody had any an-
swers or leads for law
enforcement.
The lack of a victim
had some questioning if
it ever happened.


"We were told that
somebody grabbed a
child and hustled her
away toward the direc-
tion of the golf course,"
said Elmer June, VECA
president. "My guess is
this is not true."
Director Joe Patek
gave the Sheriff's Office
"a lot of credit" for the
intensive search that was
conducted. Patek was
one of the residents who
retrieved a spotlight and
helped with the search.
When asked if the
witness could have seen
something else, like a
father collecting his
daughter, Patek said,
"I'd prefer that. That


means nothing horrible
happened. I'll take that
any day."
The Sheriff's Office
was treating the pos-
sible abduction report
itself as suspicious in
nature and was actively
investigating all leads,
reported media partner
WWSB 7.
An Amber Alert was
not issued in the case.
Around 9 p.m. on
Monday the Sheriff's
Office issued another
press release stating no
abduction had taken
place. They gave no
further details.

Man arrested
twice in two days
A South Venice man
was arrested for taking
back a bicycle his girl-
friend sold to a neighbor
earlier in the year.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
Dante Joseph Curtis, 51,

of alcohol when he walked
over to a residence and

bor months earlier.
Curtis was charged on
Dec. 28 with burglary

The next day, as

She had a swollen right
eye. The girlfriend told
the deputy she was the
victim of a battery, and
that Curtis threatened
to kill her, the neighbor
and himself with an ice
pick if they didn't drop
the burglary charge.
After the defendant
showed her an ice pick,
he threw it on the floor
in front of her. He then
picked up a cola can and
threw it at the victim's
face, leaving the swollen
right eye.

girlfriend, Curtis also
forced her to call the
neighbor and tell her
Curtis threatened to
shoot the neighbor if she
didn't drop the burglary

Caf Evergreen offers food that offers so much more


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Putting a different twist
on menu items is the
objective of the owners of
Caf6 Evergreen.
For example, they use
sheep cheese because it
is healthier than a cow
cheese and better than
goat cheese. They also
serve Kefir water, home
brewed by the owners
who believe this filtered,
alconized and ironized
water is much healthier
than tap or bottled water.
It is all about organic
and probiotics, according
to Ted Weinberger, who
with his wife Annette
recently opened the
restaurant at 801 South
Tamiami Trail in Nokomis
next to Captain Eddy's
Seafood restaurant at
Colonia Lane.
Looking around the
area to find somewhere
to relocate his next
restaurant, he found and
fell in love with the first
bank and post office in
Sarasota, the old Nokomis
Bank built in 1923. Four
years ago, he had chosen
Warm Mineral Springs
in North Port for his first
Caf6 Evergreen.
In the past year and a
half, it became obvious
the city and county were
not agreeing on the


future of the Springs.
When it closed, so did his
restaurant. Determined
to make the restaurant
work elsewhere, he
moved a few miles north
to Nokomis and has
spent several months
creating this unique
location.
Caf6 Evergreen has an
organic menu restaurant,
a juice and coffee bar,
and a produce stand. In
the spacious dining room
around an elegant large
fireplace are 11 tables
seating 44 people. On
the outside patio, area
diners eat while enjoying
the Florida lifestyle and
watching the sunset.
Chefs use about 90
percent organic greens
from their own produce
stand and everything is
prepared from scratch.
Weinberger's philosophy
is to use items having all
the good probiotics to
create healthy lunches
and dinners.
The chefs make all
their own dressings and
sauerkraut. Kefir water is
available with all items
on the menu, and all the
wines are organic.
"I took something
everyone recognizes
and made it what I call
a Reuben on steroids,
a really nice healthy
meal," he said. "Our


jr j~ mm- W -- '

holds a butternut squash.


menu contains a lot of
the favorite items people
enjoyed at the Springs
and those are combined
with new items I want
to serve at dinner like
Kelp Noodle Stir Fry and
Beef Brisket."
There are avocado and
pesto wraps, healthy style
sides, organic meat, and
fish and vegetarian burg-
ers. Dishes are available
for people who are vegan,
vegetarians and most
importantly, people who
just enjoy nice food.
The restaurant opens
at 11 a.m. and serves till
9 p.m.
A great way to start a
day is in the juice and
coffee bar, which runs
from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.
They serve 100 percent
organic drinks using


ingredients from local
suppliers and organic
items they can only get
from California.
The selection of
smoothies includes inter-
esting supplements that
can be added, together
with a selection of fruit
juices that have been
juiced at the bar.
To the rear is the pro-
duce stand, also opening
at 9 a.m. but closing
at 7 p.m. Set out on
shelving is an interesting
selection of fresh fruits
and vegetables displayed
in attractive baskets.
Organic peanut butter,
milk, eggs and produce
are from local farms and
suppliers.
Weinberger said when
they want to make
something for the diners,

sizing the good bacteria growing in the bottom of the bottle.


the chefs enjoy going to
the produce stand, taking
it off the shelf and a few
minutes later, people are
eating it. An interesting
add-on is giving diners
the ability to go to the
produce stand and get
something to take home.
Having just opened his
restaurant, Weinberger
employs more than 30
people. Following train-
ing in the caf6, he plans
to introduce lunch and
dinner specials. There is
parking for 35 vehicles,
and Caf6 Evergreen is
open seven days weekly.
From Milwaukee, Wisc.,
Weinberger has been in
the restaurant business
for more than 27 years,
starting as an employee,


then opening his first
restaurant when he
moved to Winterhaven.
Subsequently, he owned
a few more in that area
until moving to North
Port five years ago to
open Caf6 Evergreen in
Warm Mineral Springs.
"Caf6 Evergreen's
objective is to serve food
people will recognize but
are not going to realize it
is so much healthier," he
said.
Then he explained, 'An
example is the burger,
grass-fed on organic...
feed so diners will get just
as much Omega-3 as they
do in a piece of salmon.
It is not what the meat
is but what the cow is
eating."


Family opens UPS store with ability to ship worldwide


Looking at UPS
stores in the locality,
Dan Lester decided a
Nokomis location was
the best. Adjoining the
new Publix, the loca-
tion had to draw more
business, and it was close
to home.
Those were some of
the reasons that Lester,
with his sons Mike and
Chris, chose to open
the UPS Store at 1079
Tamiami Trail North in
Nokomis Village Plaza.
They will weigh, pack
and ship packages or
package it for their cus-
tomers. For business cards,
church bulletins, menus,
brochures and fliers, they
have speedy, full-service
in-house printing.
Additional services in-
clude sending faxes and
emails, printing metered
mail tape and selling
USPS stamps, packaging,
boxes, tape, bubble wrap


and labels. Further, for
overseas recipients, they
arrange UPS delivery.
Lester is from Lakeland,
where he worked in the
family business building
cellphone site towers and
selling services to major
cellular companies in
this and other states. He
maintained all Doppler
radar National Weather
Service sites in the U.S.
and overseas for 20 years,
selling the business in
2006.
The store is open
from 7:30 a.m. to
6 p.m. weekdays and
Saturday mornings; call
941-882-3711.

cakes and more goodies,"
Kathy Dippolito said.
They will have a few

Busy 2013 will it lead to banner year in 2014?


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

With 2014 now here,
business owners rep-
resenting a selection of
stores and services in this
area spoke to the Venice
Gondolier Sun and gave
their opinions of the past
year and what they see
coming in the future.

Doing very well,
future good, except for
the Affordable Care
Act, emphasized John
Giglio, president & CEO
of Freedom Boat Club
responded.
"Sales have increased
16 percent, and we have
increased our staff by
13 percent. Both increas-
es were slightly higher
than budgeted.
"I think that the
economy has improved
dramatically. As you
drive around and notice
new homes being built
and many of our cus-
tomers mention that
they are new to the area.
Most importantly, I think
consumer confidence
in general is up. People
are no longer waiting to
make large purchases;
they are engaged and
poised to enjoy their
recreational time on the
Gulf Coast.
"We are budgeting for
another growth year on
the revenue side with
several new locations
planned in 2014.
"I wish the outlook was
better on the employee
side. Unfortunately,
my company is right
in the crosshairs of the
Affordable Care Act. I
currently have 94 total
employees, equating to
right around 50 full-time
equivalents. If I add
more employees, I run
the risk of major expense
increases if I cross the
50 full-time equivalent
thresholds.
"As a company that
has always provided and
contributed to a very
robust benefits program,
I am now forced to try
to do more with less and
try to navigate this very
complex government
program.
"As a local business
owner, in a service
business, we need a
steady influx of new
residents into the area.
I think that this area
will continue to attract
residents from other
areas of the country, and
my business and other
service businesses will

continue to grow. I think
that as long as people
remember the lessons of
the past, the economy in
this area will continue to
grow and thrive."

Florida Coconut Oil
Company owner Patrick
Keigher expresses
caution.
"Our mall has 14 busi-
nesses, but only eight are
what I would call retail.
The others are service
businesses.
"We have seen some
growth with three new
tenants this year, Florida
Coconut Oil Co., Artesian
Chic hand-painted
furniture and Sharing
Transformation facials
and gifts. Basically, the
Venice Centre Mall
spaces are all full. We
had a great summer
business, but a very slow
October, November and
December.
'All of the businesses
are privately owned and
operated and I don't see
any new hiring for 2014.
"The Mall, in many
ways, is out of the
pedestrian traffic, which
mostly goes to Miami
and Venice Avenues.
Our benefit is the rents
are much less expensive
than the spaces on those
streets. The busiest day
of the week is Saturday
mornings when the
Venice Farmers Market
is on Tampa Avenue.
Although our traffic is
higher than 2012, the
potential customers are
apparently still feeling
the down economy and
seem to be 'shopping'
more than 'buying.'
"Talking with the other
vendors, I find that most
have not seen a change
from 2012 to 2013 and do
not see much of a differ-
ence for 2014 ... although
everyone is hoping for a
great season."

A phenomenal year,
and our community
involvement has bene-
fited the business, said
Steve Burnett of Burnett
Painting.
"2013 has been an ab-
solutely banner year for
us. A growth of 56 per-
cent led to additional
hiring. A phenomenal
year and I did not know
if we could service more.
May and June were busy
and it did not taper off.
"For 2014, we are
budgeting a 20 percent
increase. There is still a
market share available
in Sarasota but we do

not go after that because
we are so busy in Venice
and surrounding towns.
If we realize 20 percent
growth, we will need to
hire more people.
"New construction
is way up; a standard
indicator, cash flow, is up
for everyone. People are
a little more relaxed and
have more to spend on
decorating their homes,
which benefits our
industry. We have dra-
matically stepped up our
community involvement
in the past two years,
which has given us more
awareness and been a
benefit to the business."

Growth and expansion
are priorities for Bob
Cushing, co-owner of
Venice Street Legal
shuttle service.
"We did see growth in
our business during 2013
and expect to see more
growth in 2014 as the
visitors and year-round
residents continue to
learn about and use
those services.
"A new addition was
the concierge level of
service for folks wanting
to go to a restaurant,
the theater, store, their
doctor or for any person-
al shopping.
"Many residents are
no longer able to drive
or have only one car, and
we help them meet their
daily needs. They call us


to set up a reservation for
pickup.
"Tourism can be an
overall economic driver
for this region and
for our business. The
regional authorities need
to increase awareness to
potential visitors. Venice
Street Legal, supported
by our advertisers,
offers free shuttle service
within downtown and
to the Venice Beach and
local museums.
"In 2013, three
Historical Tours were
added and this is antic-
ipated to grow in 2014.
Plans are to add part-
time drivers to provide
the services our custom-
ers expect."

Very busy past year
and very positive about
2014 is Sandy McGowan,
downtown merchant
and 2013 president of
Venice Mainstreet.
"The downtown
business community and
Venice Mainstreet have
experienced a very busy
year in 2013.
"Venice is very lucky to
have a vibrant and diverse
downtown. Many new
businesses have opened
and added to our retail
and dining offerings.
"Many more day-trip-
pers from the surround-
ing areas are visiting. All
the support of our local
citizens is appreciated as
much as we look forward

I look back at the fun business stories of 2013


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

As the business writer ''
for the Venice Gondolier
Sun, I thought it would
nice to take a fun look
back at the business
year in 2013.
Do you remember
these events?
(The numbers corre-
spond to the numbers
under the photos.)
(1) In the spring, I
climbed a contractor's
ladder to capture Mike
Pachota and his son
Justin on the first floor
infrastructure of their
new restaurant, Fins at
Sharky's.
(2) In the summer,
I recorded hostess
Barbara Isaacson invit-
ing diners to enjoy their
final visit to the Irish
Pub of TJ Carneys as it
was closing.
(3) A rare opportunity
occurred to photo-
graph Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson "Thinking
Clean Thinking Green"
with a dump truck
- the latest environ-
mentally green refuse
collection vehicle.
(4) Big Belly appeared
downtown and I found
Rosanne Brown of
Venice Stationers
throwing the paper in
this new automatic
waste bin.
(5) We had a peep
as Jacquie Schlitter
showed us how to ride
by lying astride her fast
recumbent cycle on
which she can reach
speeds in excess of
30 mph. She is co-own-
er of Vito Bikes & Trikes.
(6) Finally we hit
Facebook big, with
more than 22,000 views
of this photo taken
during our very wet
summer. A warning
sign was posted on the
median of U.S. 41 in
Nokomis, shocking driv-
ers. It said, "MANATEE
ZONE." Was it really
that wet? The Sarasota
County Sheriff's office
later reported a mal-
function of their new
sign "No texting and
driving."

JAIL
FROM PAGE 1
It's unknown what
impact the jail closure
will have on the Venice
and North Port police
departments, as follow-
ing the closure today, all
arrestees will be trans-
ported to the main jail in
downtown Sarasota.
Venice Police Chief Tom
McNulty said his depart-
ment would definitely
feel an impact from the
closure and added that he
would take a "month or
two" months to determine

FROM PAGE 1
he lived that had been
nearly in the direct path
of Haiyan, and funds to
help the recovery process.
In the nearly two
months since Haiyan
struck, relief efforts have
dwindled, he said, and
the world's attention is
focused elsewhere even


what those impacts are.
"We're going to make
it work; we have to,"
McNulty said. "Hopefully
the impact will be as
minimal as possible."
Meanwhile, NPPD
Chief Kevin Vespia said
it would take time to
collect and assess the
data following the jail's
closure in terms of po-
tential impact. He added
that arrests in North
Port were down around
8 percent in 2013.
"I don't think it's going
to be substantial," Vespia

Holic said Monday, he has
some ideas that he hopes
could one day reopen the
holding facility, which
is housed in the same
building as the Venice
Police Department on
Ridgewood Avenue.
Holic thinks a municipal
service taxing unit, or
MSTU, would not "touch
the sheriff's budget,"
but instead represent a
different way to go about
collecting the money
the SCSO needs for that
budget.
While Holic admits
the reduction of taxes for
Venice and North Port
residents for the sheriff's

waiting, he wants to get
back into the relief effort.
He's hoping to raise
$20,000 to get the use of
a pickup truck and buy
building supplies, using
his connections through-
out Southeast Asia and
his linguistic ability he
speaks six languages -
to get things done.

up by residents in unin-

potentially be a fairer way
for municipal citizens to
be assessed.
"We should be paying
tax dollars for those

not have to pay for the
services we don't receive,"
Holic said.

former SCSO sergeant,

North Port Mayor Jim
Blucher said North Port
feels a little differently
about the jail closure com-
pared to Venice, adding
that the city has a good
record with Knight.
North Port will eventu-

some of the services the
sheriff provides in-house,
Blucher said, like a SWAT
team or drug programs,
but for now, he likes where
things stand with Knight
and the Sheriffs Office.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


Pressure is on Florida to prepare well for growth


or years we've heard the pre-
dictions and the talk about how
northern baby boomers would
swell Florida's population.
Well, apparently that time has come.
Sometime in the next few months,
Florida will surpass New York as the
nation's third most populous state.
Only California and Texas will top the
Sunshine State.
That prediction is based on
numbers released Monday from the
Census Bureau that show Florida
only a few thousand residents behind
New York. At Florida's rate of growth
- including the 50,000 NewYorkers
who move here every year it is just
a matter of months, or weeks, before
Florida is No. 3.
The shift in status can be accredited
to a couple of factors. One, is the loss
of manufacturing jobs in Upstate New


York and the other is the obvious -
New Yorkers and others getting tired
of the cold winters.
Besides the influx of baby boomers,
the increase in Florida's population
base is also due to our changing
demographics with more immigrants
moving to the state each year.
The growth is good news inasmuch
as it will boost Florida's tax base.
The increase in population could
also mean more representatives
in Congress and a surge in federal
dollars in grants for things like roads,
housing, health care and education.
All that, along with the bragging rights
that go along with being No. 3, add a
little prestige to Florida's image.
But, with the growth and all the new
workers, families and retirees, comes
responsibility.
The state must be prepared to


handle all that growth and come off as
advertised to those newcomers.
The weather will surely do its part
- we don't have to worry about that.
What we must avoid, however, is
becoming what too many northern
cities are known for a lack of ser-
vices, crowded highways and cramped
health care facilities.
Living the Florida dream should
mean easy access to health care. It
should mean safe roads with only the
unavoidable rush-hour gridlock. It
means we must beef up city, county
and state services to make sure our
parks, beaches and streets stay clean.
We have to look to the future of our
water supply and ensure that we have
all we need for future generations.
Safety is another issues that is
always at the forefront of seemingly
everyone's concern.


What Florida cannot do, or should
not do, is continue to cut back the
state payroll at the cost of state police
and parks and environmental workers.
We cannot afford to put off road
projects that will make our highways
safer.
And, we should not continue to
deny health care to many underpaid
and underprivileged by refusing
Medicaid expansion.
It is great news that Florida is
growing. It will mean jobs and finan-
cial opportunities for small and large
businesses alike.
How we manage and prepare for all
those newcomers will be the differ-
ence between that growth continuing
and Florida becoming even more
attractive and second thoughts by
those looking to relocate to a place to
call home.


Caring is at heart


of this community


Good morning and Happy
New Year, Venice.
It's 2014. Can you believe it? It
doesn't feel like we are starting
our 15th year into the new
century; yet, here we are cele-
brating another January 1. The
entire Venice Gondolier Sun staff
wishes that the New Year brings
you happiness, peace and the
answers to your prayers.
As always, we are thankful to
you, our readers, for allowing
us to be a part of your routine.
It is indeed an honor to serve
this community.
January is exciting for us as
we make final preparations for
our annual Best of Venice pro-
gram that will be held Jan. 25
at the Plantation Golf and
Country Club. The ballots have
been cast and counted, our
advertising reps are scurrying
about to get the invitations to
the business owners and we
look forward to awarding all of
our winners again this year.
Last year was our first at-
tempt to have a formal celebra-
tion and it turned out magnif-
icent; it was such a rewarding
experience to celebrate your
decisions with our business
community. Our staff has been
working really hard to make
sure this year equals the thrill
of our 2013 event, and we look
forward to sharing an evening
with the business community.
Without your participation
in the voting, we could not
recognize those businesses
chosen and it means an awful
lot to us and the community.
Thank you for taking the time
to make this happen.
As we begin a new year, of-
ten we reflect on the past and
either hope to change things


with our new resolutions or we
want to make the things in our
world that work great even bet-
ter. We have so many positives
in our community that you
would be hard-pressed to get it
working better.
One of this community's
most endearing qualities is
the belief that our people
possess a belief that we can
in fact make things better. Our
community strives to make life
a better for those who are not
as fortunate as most.
Countless volunteer hours
are given by citizens to help out
those in need. Every day, there
is an act of kindness that most
of us will never know occurred
but the effect on the human
race is monumental. From
feeding the hungry, caring for
our elderly and watching over
our mental health wellness, the
things this community does
out of kindness is incredible.
There are so many organi-
zations out there dedicated to
helping humanity that it would
take days to gather all the
information and inform you.
If you were forced to describe
the impact the people and
the organizations have on our
community, in my mind the
word would be hope.
Hope is pumped into our
community like sunshine in
the summer. Everywhere you
turn there is someone trying to
help make it better, find a cure,
save an animal, you name
it. We can almost guarantee
there is someone somewhere
working on a solution.
If a new situation arises, most
certainly a group of people will
come together, create an action
plan and be working on a
solution faster than you can get
a pizza delivered. It is incredible
to watch this community oper-
ate, and we are truly blessed to
call this place home.
So as we begin 2014, working
toward a better tomorrow, we
the people can go about our
routines knowing that in our
community, the New Year will
most certainly bring us all hope.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Now power companies
can charge us
for unbuilt plants

Editor:
A recent article in AARP sur-
prised me because it was news
to me. Apparently, a state law
has allowed electric utilities
to charge an additional fee
for new nuclear power plants
before they are operating, even
those on the drawing board.
I really don't keep up with
the laws the Legislature passes
but I am sure powerful lobbies
do. It is not a secret and the
information is available to the
public. I am trying to remem-
ber the last time I reached out
to find the latest from the state
Legislature.
The focus now is Florida
Power and Light use of cost
recovery fees to finance two
nuclear power plants in Miami.
This law surprised me as much
as the people in that small
California town were surprised
to find that the city manager
was making almost a million
dollars a year.
I think you know where
I am going with this. Let's
think about this for a minute.
What was that thing in Japan?
Something about a total disas-
ter concerning a nuclear power
plant, was that it? It appears
the world is turning to the
greenest of all energy, fuel cells,
but to consider nuclear energy
is like asking the auto industry
to go back to the horse.
Duke Energy abandoned
plans to build a nuclear power
plant in Levy County after
collecting about a billion
dollars in cost recovery fees.
Do you feel like the people in
that small California town who
discovered the salary of their
city manager? I do.
We go about our lives just
trying to survive day to day
and what is the most boring of
all, researching the laws that
are passed year after year with
the help of powerful lobbies.
How many of us would go to
Tallahassee to find out just
what affects us?


I thought we had someone
there to protect us. That should
at least give you a laugh.

My thanks to the
staff at VRMC

Editor:
While visiting from the cold
north (New Jersey), I brought
my 95-year-old mother over to
Venice from Fort Lauderdale.
I wound up taking her to the
ER, and she was admitted for
several days.
I want to thank the devoted
staff at Venice Regional for
their continued compassion
and patience while she was
there. Case Manager Karen
alleviated my worries and
concerns by finding out an-
swers and providing me with
information.
RNs Felicia and Christine
were sweet and dependable
to my mom. CVTs Louis and
Robert were cheerful and
helpful. Doctors may get
the "respect" and the "high
income," but without these
individuals, patients would not
get what they need. Thank you,
thank you!

Article should
not have been on
Gondolier Sun front page

Editor:
This is in reference to the
article titled, "Man gets texts
from his wife as she vandalizes
his home."
I was disappointed to see
this article as the lead, front
page, newsworthy article in the
weekend edition. I've grown
to appreciate your coverage of
all aspects of life in Venice and
agree there should be no stone
left unturned.
With that in mind, however, I
believe the vast majority of your
readers would expect to see
this article in the "Police Beat"


section." There was no pleasing
quality to having the article on
the Gondolier front page.

Gondolier Sun picked
wrong article
for front page

Editor:
Really?!?
Like many of us, I had friends
and family visiting during the
holiday, some familiar with
Venice, some first-time visitors.
I love to show off my beautiful
piece of Paradise. Everyone
I know and who knows me,
knows that I love Venice.
In the Venice Gondolier Sun,
I enjoyed the showcase article
by Bob Mudge "Venice is a State
of Mind." He did a super job.
I bought several issues to give
my visitors and was looking for-
ward to purchasing the second
installment in the Dec. 28th
issue to give them as well.
I was disappointed to see the
Venice Gondolier Sun headline
4 inches high, in color, regard-
ing an estranged wife vandal-
izing her husband's home in
North Port.
Was this your best choice?
Really?

: WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1,2014


I see a solid economic year locally in 2014


Here we go again. A
new year and time for a
businessman's forecast of
the economic climate for
the country and, in partic-
ular, for our part of Florida.
Spending, employment
or lately unemployment,
inflation and population
growth have been our focus
in these annual columns.
Instinct and experience
suggest we will continue
to have an improving local
economy, outpacing the
nation as a whole. A year
from now it will be moving
at an even faster pace. Our
federal government still
will be putting off paying
the piper for unsustainable


entitlement programs.
I am no economist with
sophisticated economic
models of taxes, spending,
savings or the velocity of
money over the years, but
most of my forecasts have
been close to the mark.
It helps to pay attention
to critical numbers like
the Leading Indicators
Index, the inflation rate,
the Consumer Confidence
Index, the money supply
and the interest rate
target of the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp.
I am encouraged to
continue this annual
amateur economic forecast
after going back and reading
the Wall Street Journal of
Sept. 13, 2007. A survey of 55
economists pegged the risk
of recession at only 36 per-
cent. While most of my 15
annual forecasts have been
close to the mark, I, too, un-
derestimated the severity of
the recession we were facing
in 2008, though not as far
off as the chief economist


for global investment bank
Bear Steams, who put the
chances of a recession at
only 10 percent.
Not surprisingly, it went
bust in 2008.
Without throwing too
many numbers around, here
goes my forecast for 2014.
In our comer of Florida,
the number of vacant
homes continues to shrink.
Foreclosures a hangover
from the rebuilding boom
that followed Hurricane
Charley in 2004, and the
loose mortgage standards
that prevailed until early
2008 are higher than the
Florida average, but are
falling.
Our population, fueled by
the first ofWorldWar II baby
boomers now reaching their
mid-60s, is growing. This
is lifting home prices and
encouraging new construc-
tion. The growth spillover
effect is not just the new
retiree homeowners. It is
jobs and population growth
created by those who serve


retirees, themselves requir-
ing housing and services.
While still short of its
2007 level, the University
of Michigan Consumer
Sentiment Index has
been rising for the last
five months. Consumer
spending is the lion's share
of our economy. Consumer
mood and behavior are
big determiners of our
spending.
The Conference Board's
Index of Leading Economic
Indicators is up for the fifth
straight month. It tracks
such things as hours in
manufacturing, new orders
in manufacturing, stock
prices, building permits and
the money supply.
A bothersome statistic
is credit card debt. The
average is down a little from
three years ago. However
most of that reduction has
been achieved by some
consumers getting debt-
free, while the average of
credit card debt holders
remains about $15,000.


What the year ahead
looks like to this business-
man is this: continued
growth in home prices
and home building.
Unemployment should
continue to decline. Wage
rates will creep up. Retail
sales activity will continue
to increase, but at less than
boom levels.
Every forecaster is entitled
to a caveat. Just how the
FDIC can create money
by decree and control its
impact on the broader
economy still escapes my
understanding.
In my Florida lifetime, I
have seen our population
double and double again,
then double once more. It
is still growing, and maybe
that is all you need to know
to have some confidence in
an improving local econo-
myin2014.

Saturday morning at Bobcat Trail Golf Club in North Port. Bentley, a former running back for
eight seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, was among the celebrities playing in a golf tourna-
ment fundraiser to benefit New Operation Cooper Street a community-based organization
that is both a learning and a recreation center in Punta Gorda. Joining him were Anthony
Hargrove, an NFL player who went to the Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints; and Port
Charlotte High School alumnus and former NBA player with the Atlanta Hawks, Darrell Gadsden.

ByZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER

Two former NFL players
and a former MLB player
joined a former NBA
player to take part in a
celebrity golf fundraiser
tournament at Bobcat
Trail on Saturday.
The tournament, which
was the "brainchild" of
Darrell Gadsden, a former
Atlanta Hawks player, fea-
tured nine teams of four
golfers each. Gadsden is
a member of the Cooper
Street Community
Learning Center board
of directors and the
tournament raised money
for the center, which has
lost a lot of government
funding in the last two
years.
Gadsden's wife, Arlene,
grew up going to Cooper
Street, and their com-
pany, Gadsden Property
Investment Inc., was
one of the tournament's
primary sponsors.
Former NFL and USFL
running back Albert
Bentley and former
NFL lineman Anthony
Hargrove both took


part in the tournament.
Bentley was born in
Naples and played foot-
ball at Immokalee High
School, while Hargrove
grew up in Charlotte
County and played at Port
Charlotte High School.
Hargrove was very
intent on giving back
to Cooper Street after
spending a lot of time
at the center during his
childhood.
"I'm very, very grateful
for many reasons," he
said. "I lost my parents
at a very early age. I was
born in Brooklyn, and I
was moved to Florida in
1993. Coming from New
York City to Charlotte
County, Florida, is a
(major) cultural shock.
I really didn't know how
to address people here
in Florida and Cooper
Street was a place of
familiar faces. It was
a place I could go and
find understanding and
people relating to the
issues I was having in
my life. People at Cooper
Street understood what I
needed as a young child
with no parents and


looking for guidance."
A few teens who
currently attend Cooper
Street were on hand
at the fundraiser and
listened as Hargrove gave
a speech after accepting
one of the two prizes he
won.
Rounding out the field
were several Bobcat Trail
members and a surprise
celebrity guest: former
Kansas City Royals and
Cincinnati Reds pitch-
er Jeff Montgomery,
whose father is a course
member.
Gadsden said he was
satisfied with the turnout,
especially since he only
came up with the idea
two months ago.
"We're gonna try to
make it annual," he said.
"This year's not as good
as we'd like it to be, but
it's a start. My hope is
that, through some of the
sources I have, I can get
it to grow and get some
larger corporations to
actually do some (big)
donations to the fund."

VHS graduate Owen finishes career on high note


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

In his last collegiate
football game, Jamie
Owen did what he does
best. He sacked the
quarterback.
The Venice High School
graduate was one of
three players to represent
Maryville College (Tenn.)
on the South squad in the
Dec. 13 D3 Senior Classic
in Salem, Va.
With the temperature


in the 30s, the defensive
end had two sacks and
five tackles for the losing
team in the all-star game.
Owen, who led the USA
South Athletic Conference
in sacks this season, fin-
ished his career two shy
of the school's all-time
sack record.
"I started, and I played
every snap of the game,"
Owen said Thursday,
when he returned home
to Knoxville after four
days visiting Southwest


Florida for the holiday. "It
was awesome."
"It was a great expe-
rience," he said. "It was
very fun."
Owen said the first sack
came four or five plays
into the game, the second
before halftime.
"Then they started
double-teaming me," he
said.
Owen faced offensive
linemen he said he hadn't
played before. He beat a


for the first sack.
"He didn't really know
my style of play," he said.
"I came off the line. He
threw his hands out try-
ing to get a hold of me."
He said he swatted the
lineman's hands with his
left hand, grabbed the
quarterback with his right
and "barely got touched
at all."
The next sack hap-
pened when the quar-
terback took a five-step


man-to-man assignment drop, then stepped up


in the pocket right into
Owen's grasp.
Owen graduated this
month from Maryville.
He will receive his degree
during the spring gradua-
tion ceremony.

Golf's Old Magic: Dinosaurs and Frost


For us septuagenari-
ans and octogenarians
- the words sound
like types of dinosaurs
but just mean people
in their 70s and 80s
- staying in physical
and mental shape to
play golf is an ongoing
challenge.
I must admit that
sometimes when I wake
up in the morning, I feel
more like a dinosaur
trying to return to life
than just a stiff, mildly
arthritic 72-year-old.
The physical chal-
lenges we senior duffers
face would be amusing
if they weren't so pain-
ful. Consider (briefly, I
promise) the aches and
pains a few of my golf

buddies deal with in
their pursuit of a decent
score and the other
mysterious perks with
which the "golf gods"
lure us on.
In reverse chronologi-
cal order:
Eighty-eight year-
old Ray has macular
degeneration and
sometimes, as he gets
ready to swing, the ball
looks like an egg.
"This is getting ridic-
ulous! How do you hit
an oval when you know
the ball is supposed to
be round?"
Eighty-one year-old
Jerry is prone to "mini"
seizures, which he
has learned to deal
with wisely by waiting
for these dizzying
blackouts to pass. But
sometimes after such
episodes, he's been
known to hit and drive
off toward the wrong
hole.
Seventy-five year-old
Scott loves the game

arthritic joints in his
hands and wrists so he
can continue to grip his
clubs with a soft touch
and maintain his great
average score of 84.
"All I need now is to
live to be 85 so I can
break my age."
I've been lucky, so far.
Only my lower back has
been acting up, prob-
ably from the impact
of walking nine holes
on my local course day
after day. I've come
to understand that
throwing myself into
such bursts of physical
energy is definitely not
as good for my game as
isolating one specific
skill, like chipping from
the fringe of the green,
and practicing that shot
over and over again.
But I just love my late
afternoon walks too
much to quit.
Clearly, all of us old
duffers chase the muse
around the course as
long as we possibly can.
What keeps us at it?
What's the psychological


motivation for this
parade of dinosaurs?
Dylan Thomas
probably offers the best
answer in a famous
poem, in which he
writes:
Do not go gentle into
that good night.
Rage, rage against the
dying of the light.
But everybody's got
a different story about
how they fell for the
game and why they
stick to it, so all I can do
is speak for myself.
Looking back at
50 years of working
life, I'm one of those
retirees who has to
admit, with some
regret, that I frequently
lacked a 100 percent
commitment toward my
profession.
In my own mind,
I was a writer, an
artist; but I taught
school to earn a living.
Consequently, I couldn't
give 100 percent to
either of my selves.
And the ironic and
surprising truth about

how I'm approaching
golf now, in retirement,
is that I'm studying and
practicing the game
with precisely the kind
of all-in approach that
was missing throughout
much of my earlier life.
Some old friends and
family members kid
me about the devotion
I now bring to "a mere
game," but to them the
old English professor in
me offers these lines by
Robert Frost, from "Two
Tramps in Mud Time":
But yield who will to
their separation,
My object in living is
to unite
My avocation and my
vocation
As my two eyes make
one in sight.
Is it too ridiculous to
think that in golf, this
retiree has finally been
able to unite avocation


and vocation?
If you could see
me studying YouTube
videos on pitching
and chipping, then
going out to prac-
tice for hours, you'd
understand.
I am working. Indeed,
my avocation and
vocation are finally one.
So Frost deserves the
last words here.
After the four lines
above, the poem
concludes:
Only where love and
need are one,
And the work is play
for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really
done
For Heaven and the
future's sakes.

Myths and misconceptions about hearing loss


ANNE TAYLOR
Myths circulate in our
society and often lead to
misunderstanding people


with hearing loss.

Common myths are:
Myth: No one knows I
have a hearing loss
False: You may be
the last person to ac-
knowledge that you have
difficulty hearing. People
are likely to think you
are aloof, snobby or rude
because they perceive
you to be ignoring them
when in fact you cannot
hear. You probably ask for


repeats frequently, have
the television on too loud,
say the wrong thing or say
something someone else
has already said. You may
react oddly because you
did not understand what
was said. You may drift off
during conversations.

Myth: People with
hearing loss are less
intelligent.
False: People with
hearing loss, who have


not identified themselves
as hard of hearing, may
appear less intelligent
because they do not
hear the question and
respond incorrectly or
inappropriately.

Myth: All people
with hearing loss
use sign language to
communicate.
False: American Sign
Language (ASL) usually
works well within the


Deaf community where
everyone uses ASL.
However, the majority
of people, who are
hard of hearing, have
been brought up in a
speaking world, do not
know ASL. Using hearing
aids, cochlear implants
and assistive listening
devices is a more viable
option than trying to
learn ASL and teaching
it to family, friends and
work colleagues.


Myth: People with
hearing problems can't
use the telephone.
False: The frequency
range of telephone
transmission is challeng-
ing to people with normal
hearing. It is extremely
challenging, if impossible,
for a person with hearing
loss to hear all that is
said on the telephone.

HEARING 14


Thurgood' offers profound look at Civil Rights era


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Montae Russell brings
to life Justice Thurgood
Marshall in "Thurgood,"
even as playwright George
Stevens Jr. brings to life the
history of the Civil Rights
movement in the United
States.
Newly opened in
the Keating Theatre at
Florida Studio Theatre,
"Thurgood" is a powerful
one-man show. Russell
literally leaps off the stage
and into the minds of
those in the audience
as Marshall moves from
Howard Law School grad-
uation in 1933 to become
the first African American
Supreme Court Justice. In


the process, Marshall also
became, in the minds of
many, "the architect of the
civil rights movement."
Being turned down by
his state university law
school and having to settle
for Howard was a mitigat-
ing factor in the direction
his career took but then so
was the "distinctive name"
he was given and his
"extreme stubbornness."
"Sometimes I get a
little weary trying to save
the white man's soul,"
Marshall says in the play.
Judging by the audience
reaction throughout the
play, Marshall saved many
souls, white and black, as
his career developed and
his name became asso-
ciated with various court


cases. People seated near
me at the Friday evening
performance I attended
whispered the names of
critical court cases almost
before the actor said the
lines.
We see him speaking in
front of the Supreme Court
where he is given one hour
to plead his case yet is
interrupted 43 times. We
gain incite into the likes of
Gen. Douglas MacArthur,
Chief Justice Earl Warren
and President Dwight


Eisenhower, among others.
So driven is Marshall
in the pursuit of equality
for all, that he feels guilty
about not spending
enough time with his wife.
When she dies of cancer
on his 44th birthday, he is
totally alone.
"I had never been
alone," he said. "I lost 30
pounds. I was rude and
irritable."
Things looked up again

Did you overindulge
during the holiday
season? Are you having
trouble seeing past your
tummy to your toes,
which point to a new,
larger number on your
bathroom scale? Well
then it's time to tip-toe
on over to the Venice
Community Center, 326
S. Nokomis Ave. in Venice,
for Beginner Boot Camp.
Beginner Boot Camp
starts Jan. 7 and will
be held Tuesdays and
Thursday from 10:30

week, straight-forward
exercise camp offers
helpful instruction in a
no-pressure environment,
said Dorian Mattox, VCC
program coordinator.
Instructor J.D. Doyle
works closely with each


camper and designs
exercises that will help
attendees lose weight and
inches in just eight weeks,
said Mattox.
"Your body will be
stronger, and that person
staring back at you in the
full-length mirror will be
smiling," Mattox said.
Doyle's program has
worked for hundreds of
men and women of every
age and condition. From
fitness competitors to


disabled senior citizens,
pregnant mothers, over-
weight teenagers, back
injury patients, diabetics
and middle-aged busi-
nessmen, the results are
amazing.
"I enjoy the challenge
of helping people from
all walks of life achieve

to the general public for
2014. They will "match"
every dollar donated by
Venice DQ Grill & Chill
for the historic Lord-Higel
House restoration project,
currently supporting
the wrap-around porch
replacement, which is an
intregal part of the historic
house.
When completed, the
porch will serve as the
"crown jewel" on this


meaningful house, built
in 1896 by pioneer-entre-
preneur Joseph Lord and
lived in for many years by
pioneer-newsman George
Higel and his family.
The Lord-Higel House
is the oldest existing
house in Venice. Venice
Heritage Inc.'s vision is
to establish a Pioneer
Living History Museum
depicting the pioneer
era of Venice, Nokomis,
Laurel and Osprey to be
enjoyed by all residents
and visitors for many
generations.
Since 2008, the Venice
Dairy Queen has been


a loyal supporter of the
Lord-Higel House resto-
ration project by donating
10 percent of every
customer receipt every
second Wednesday every
month. The restaurant
has agreed to continue
doing it through 2014.
The public is invited
to join in the fun at the
Venice Dairy Queen, 1465
E. Venice Ave., between
the hours of 5 p.m. and
8 p.m. for conversation,
tasty treats, salads, sand-
wiches and drinks.
People can take this
opportunity to join Susan
Hanks and Dr. Bill Jervey's


challenge in support of
this meaningful project,
which insures the Venice
Heritage's mission to
"Preserve yesterday for
tomorrow... We don't
know where we are going
until we know where we
have been."
Additional contribu-
tions for the Lord-Higel
House restoration and
porch replacement may
be mailed to Venice
Heritage Inc., P.O. Box
1190, Venice, FL 34284.

Sarasota Jungle Gardens amazes kids of all ages


There are one-of-a-kind
places that likely could
only exist in Florida: The
Shell Factory, Gatorland,
Linger Lodge.
Sarasota Jungle
Gardens should be on
that list.
This is another great
place to take kids while
they are on winter break
- especially elementary
school-age kids.
"It's interesting for
little ones," said Roxanne
Henkel of Venice.
The Sarasota Jungle
Gardens opened on
New Year's Eve in 1939.
Initially, it was just a
botanical garden, which
still exists today.
"Some of our prized
possessions include the
rare Australian nut tree,
a bunya bunya tree, the
largest Norfolk Island
pine in Florida, bulrush,
strangler figs, royal palms,
sellouts, banana trees,
Peruvian apple cactus,
staghorn ferns and native
red maples, oak trees and
bald cypress," according
to the gardens' website.
Take time to ex-
plore the gardens. A
map will be provided
upon entry. There are

smirking.


easy-to-navigate paths
that weave around animal
exhibits, playgrounds,
waterfalls and other
attractions.
There are plenty
of benches scattered
around, as well, for those
who want to take a break,
rest their feet, or simply
enjoy the view.
The famous bird shows
were added in the 1970s,
and they remain a high-
light today. Don't miss
the Jungle Bird Show,
which takes place at noon
and 3 p.m. Show times,
of course, are subject to
change, so check for any
updated times when you
arrive.
The Jungle Bird Show
is the one in which you
can see birds roller-skate,
making you feel a little
clumsy if you are unable
to do so. Little kids,
especially in the pre-
school/kindergarten ages,
seemed to be mesmerized


by the brightly colored
macaws as they interact
with the audience.
There are other nonbird
shows throughout the day
as well.
The Reptile Encounter
shows take place at
11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
(again, times are subject
to change). Guests are
allowed to hold reptiles
at the end of the show.
While I will always pass
on this opportunity,
it may be an exciting
adventure for some, like
8-year-old Brayden Baker.
Jen Baker of Byron,
Ill1., has been visiting
Southwest Florida since
she was a little kid, and
now she brings her chil-
dren here. She recently
brought Brayden and her
two other children, ages
2 and 7.
"Brayden, what was
your favorite?" Jen asked
her oldest son.
"Holding a ball


python," Brayden said.
Those of us with a fear
of being bitten, strangled
or shocked into cardiac
arrest can steer clear of
the reptile house and
reptile show. There's
still plenty to do at the
Sarasota Jungle Gardens.
The gardens also offers
a Wild Life Wonder Show
at 2 p.m.: "Learn about
red-tailed hawks, kook-
aburras, owls, skunks,
hissing cockroaches
and so many more. The
dynamics of this show
change frequently, and
you never know which
animal will make an
appearance. We promise
you'll be thoroughly
entertained by all things
creeping, crawling and
wiggling," the website
states.
For a tamer form of
entertainment, be sure to
spend some time with the
pink flamingos, located
near the center of the
gardens. Food can be
purchased to hand-feed
the funny birds.
The people-friendly
birds are celebrities (sort
of). There's a live fla-
mingo camera recording
their movements that
can be viewed online
t; SarasotaJungleGardens.
com.
In addition to the
flamingos, macaws and
reptiles, expect to see a
crocodile, prairie dogs,
lemurs, monkeys and
butterflies, as well as
other critters.
Those needing a


midday snack or lunch
can purchase food in the
Flamingo Cafe.
Before leaving, stop
in the gift shop. It may
be a good place to find
a last-minute Christmas
present or a souvenir
to remember your fun
day at Sarasota Jungle
Gardens.
Also, there are special
hours and days this
month for the Holiday
Lights Spectacular. The
gardens are filled with
lighted displays, which
could make for cute
family photos.
For more informa-
tion on the Holiday
Lights Spectacular
and the Sarasota
Jungle Gardens, vis-
it: SarasotaJungleGardens.

the many beautiful birds at

the telephone has greatly
improved by the use of
internet, videophones
(VP), amplified and
captioned telephones.

Myth: Hearing aids
restore hearing and are
like wearing glasses with
20/20 vision.
False: Hearing devices
such as hearing aids and
cochlear implants give
a sense of hearing but
can never restore normal
hearing. However, it is
important to note that
hearing devices can im-
prove your quality of life.

Myth: Hearing aids can


damage your hearing
False: Hearing aids are
designed so they cannot
amplify sound levels that
are dangerous to your
hearing.

Myth: Nerve deafness
cannot be cured.
True: However, nerve
deafness (sensorineural
hearing loss) can be
treated with assistive
technology, lip reading,
communication strategies
and peer support.

Myth: All people with
hearing loss are old.
False: Hearing loss can
happen at any age. In
fact 1 in 5 teens and 1 in
4 college students today
has hearing loss because
of too much loud music
consumption. Soldiers


are coming home from
the wars suffering from
hearing loss.

Myth: A mild hearing
loss is not important.
False: The impact
of not hearing clearly
can cause speech and
language retardation,
particularly in children.
Not hearing can cause
emotional stress and put
us in harm's way. For
example, fire alarms, door
bells, telephone, traffic
noise, water running,
baby alarm, alarm clock.

Myth: There is no need
to rush to get hearing
aids if one's hearing is
declining.
False: Untreated
hearing loss can accel-
erate one's loss as well


as increase the risk of
dementia and tinnitus.

Myth: People with
hearing loss lead less
active lives.
True and false: It is
true for those who don't
get treatment as they
hear less and become
more isolated from
people and activities.
However, people who do
get treatment socialize
more, do better in their
careers and are likely to
be involved in communi-
ty activities. Today, new
loop technology makes
theater, services and
meetings more accessible
for people with hearing
loss, while new caption-
ing systems are helping
many to enjoy the movies
again.


Myth: People perceive
folks wearing hearing aids
as old or impaired.
False: People are much
more likely to notice
someone's inability to
hear, understand or re-
action to a conversation,
rather than whether they
wear hearing aids.

Find out more about
hearing loss and how
the latest technology
may help improve your
hearing and your quality
of life. Florida's largest
Hearing Loss Expo will be
held March 8, from 9 a.m.
to 4 p.m., MTI Cantrell
Hall, 6305 State Road
70, Bradenton. Offerings
include seminars, free
hearing screenings,
prizes, raffles and 40-
50 exhibitors will be


demonstrating hearing

ing loss alone. You can re-

Arena. The rotted roof
and walls were removed
down to the original steel
girders and the 14-inch
thick concrete floor that
held an entire circus
during rehearsal season
for more than 30 years.
An interesting result was
the number of phone
calls from people who
wanted to know about
the "new" building being

landmarks such as the ga-

Sharky's at the Pier and
the old KMI building on
West Tampa Avenue. That
building is known today
as the Venice Center Mall.
In keeping with the
John Nolen Plan for
Venice, locally organized
home tours honored area
architecture. Last July,
the Sarasota Alliance of
Historic Preservation
brought fans of the
Sarasota School-style
homes to Venice to
see a mid-1950s home
designed by the late Paul
Rudolph, one of the most
important architects of
the group of designers
collectively known as
the Sarasota School of
Architecture. Earlier in
the year, members of the
AAUW and members of
the Venice Area Garden
Club sponsored other
home tours featuring
historic and recent
construction.
A foundation offering
worldwide support for
families affected by
the Phelan-McDermid
Syndrome is head-
quartered in Venice. Its
existence was thrust
into the limelight when
the foundation topped
the list of 287 local
nonprofits in this year's
36-hour Sarasota County
area Giving Challenge,
racking up $90,102 in
gifts from 678 donors.
Those numbers earned
bonuses that brought the
foundation's total receipts
to about $145,000 for the
36-hour event. Roughly
$2.78 million was raised
for the 285 participating
organizations in the
Giving Challenge held in
March.
Throughout the year,
veterans were celebrated
by flags at cemeteries for
Memorial Day as well as

achievements in STEM
courses (science, tech-
nology, engineering and
mathematics), a weight-
ed grade point average
of 3.9 or higher and a
minimum of 25 hours
of approved community
service.
The Sunshine State
Scholars program focuses
on retaining intellectual
talent in Florida. Each
of the scholars, along



Badawi and Thelma
Cohn, and the Gypsy
Dance from "Carmen,"
performed by clarinet
and piano duo Phil
Hohmann and Dave
Nascimbeni. Saxophonist
J.P. Beauregard and
baritone Ken Holton
will also perform. Visit


special events conducted
in conjunction with the
Patterson Foundation's
Legacy of Valor campaign.
As part of that initiative,
Habitat for Humanity
partnered with local
organizations to repair
homes of veterans in
need. Venice Concert
Band and Exultate!
honored veterans in
special performances and
Wreaths Across America
placed wreaths on every
grave at Sarasota National
Cemetery where a
remembrance ceremony
was held on Dec. 14.
"Our goal through the
Legacy of Valor campaign is
to encourage our commu-
nity to use Patriot Plaza
following its dedication to
continue to honor veterans
for generations to come,"
Patterson Foundation
President Debra M. Jacobs
said.

Big Brothers and Big

Habitat For Humanity,
the Lions Club, the Senior

many groups.
The most unusual

have been the combined

the Venice Interfaith

a hand with great playing strength

U.S. history.
Last year, Kelley spoke

and children at the
annual Venice Main-
Street Halloween Trick or
Treat event. Like other
MainStreet reps, Brenda
enjoyed meeting and
greeting all the happy
costumed characters.


Year means lots of events


FRAN VALENCIC
In Venice, New Year's Day
means get ready, get set, go.
My inbox is filled with press
releases announcing upcom-
ing events. The calendar blocks
show several events a day on
many days. Needless to say,


fashion shows dominate the
scene.
Venice MainStreet wants
you to Think Pink with
fashions from various stores
in town. Their event is on
Feb. 5 at the Plantation Golf &
Country Club. The $35 ticket
is available at The Sun Bug
on the corner of West Venice
Avenue and Nokomis Avenue.
Nancy Gorski and the crew
from Our Lady of Lourdes
do their fashion show every
year. They are experts. The
event is so popular that people
ask for tickets for next year
as they leave this year. The
show features fashions from
Patchington's and is scheduled
for Feb. 26 at JacarandaWest
Country Club.


Tickets are $35. Call Carol for
tickets and information at 941-
497-5170. This group usually
has enough prizes for everyone
to leave with at least one.

Take a Class
This Saturday, Deborah's
Quilt Shop on West Venice
Avenue offers a teachers show-
case from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
You can sign up for classes,
meet with teachers and see
samples of their offerings.
Refreshments will be served.
Remember, gurus tell us to
learn something new each day.

One of our best
The special person of


this week is Mike Pachota.
This nice man owns several
restaurants in Venice. Mike
and his businesses generously
contribute and participate in
almost every community event
in town. You see Sharky's in
parades, in the bed races and
at food tasting, and the name
appears in most programs.
The restaurants contribute
their facilities to fashion
shows. When the Christmas
in July trolley driver made his
stop at Sharky's, he received a
nice boxed lunch. Sharky's fab-
ulous fish tacos are a featured
item at Sun Fiesta.
Senior citizens from vari-
ous assisted-living facilities
enjoyed a lovely Christmas Eve
dinner thanks to Sharky's. The


grand opening of Fins was a
fundraiser for the Loveland
Center.
Most of all, Mike loves being
a grandfather. He spends
Sunday afternoons with the
grandkids when and he and
his elementary-school-age
grandson always enjoy a round
of golf. Mike is a wonderful
friend and has a great sense
of humor. He his filled with a
tremendous, generous spirit.
Mike Pachota is one of the
men who make Venice a great
place to live.

Fran Valencic is the Venice
Gondolier Sun's social col-
umnist and welcomes your
ideas and tips. Email her at
Fran Valencic@comcast.net.


Fans gathered at Centennial Park in downtown Venice to cele-
brate the Venice High School Indians baseball team, who are
state champions two years in a row.


Sen.Nancy
Detert led the
Sun Fiesta parade
as grand marshal,
along with her
grandsons Eric
(left) and Ryan,
a member of the
Venice Middle
School ROTC.
Nancy celebrated
finally getting
her no-texting-
while-driving
bill passed in the
Florida
Legislature.


Snook Haven on the Myakka River reopened under new
management this year. Donna and Mike Pachota (left) are
the new owners. Jon Thaxton joins well-wishers at the grand
opening celebration that included barbecue prepared by Mayor
John Holic and the ever-popular banjo band.


Before a City Council meeting, Mayor John Holic proclaimed a
Venice Elementary School Day. Student Council members at
the school organized their annual food drive for the mayor's
Feed the Hungry Campaign and surpassed their goal, collecting
almost 800 cans of soup. Teacher Shari Valencic spearheaded
the project.


The Arboretum at
Blalock Park was
recently named for
Monty Andrews,
who originated the
idea and organizes
maintenance of the
Arboretum. Monty
loves what he does
and never takes
himself too seri-
ously, as evidenced
by the dancing
hat he wore to the
celebration.


Dick Hyman (right) was honored by Venice Heritage at its
annual fashion show and luncheon, for his generous contribu-
tions to various organizations in Venice. Dick regularly performs
benefit concerts to raise funds for the community. Clark
Pressley, who presented Dick with a plaque, is president of the
Venice Historical Society.

EIC> ,January 1 7,201i


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
A simple sign at the entrance to the Towers Plaza
on Indiana Avenue (also SR 776) in Englewood
advertizes "Pizza."
What a surprise to discover that Armadillo's is
much, much more than a pizza place. When Rick
Bizzaro decided to name his business "Armadillo's" his
wife, Katie, and his friends supported the idea.
"The unusual name caught on quickly. Customers
and family began bringing us hand-carved, metal,
and all sorts of armadillo figurines as gifts," said
Katie, "and the trend continues."
Armadillo's is huge. Most of the space is devoted to
about a dozen ornate pool tables, bistro sets with high
stools, and side seating arranged along walls. Lighting
is dim throughout, but pool tables are brilliantly lit to
enable players to concentrate on their games.
At the entrance, a quarter of the space is devoted to a
well-stocked bar where customers may order drinks, piz-
za, sandwiches or Italian specialties to go. Many choose,
however, to linger over meals in Armadillo's comfortable,
family-friendly, indoor or outside dining areas.
"We never intended to become a restaurant,"

DINING OUT GO


Live with love, walk with peace, eat with
passion. That's the motto of new Wave Grill chef
Joel Sardinhah, who is rapidly making an impact
at the Venice restaurant.
Situated inside the newly renovated Ramada
Venice Resort, the Wave Grill is positioning itself
as the go-to dining spot in a town full of excellent
dining options. In order to jump start that process,
they have hired Chef Sardinhah and are preparing
to unveil a completely new menu.
"We are a full service restaurant serving
American Continental cuisine," said Jeannie
Gomes, director of sales and marketing. "Right
now, we just want our local folks to come in and
give us a try."
The new restaurant is light and bright, with
washed wood floors and plenty of windows to
let in the sunshine, giving it a casually elegant,
beachy feel. Chef Sardinhah's menu is full of
freshly made salads, grilled flatbreads, a variety
of sandwiches and tasty "chef's selections" like
Blackened Grouper and Shrimp, Tropical BBQ Beef
Short Ribs and Chicken Alfredo de Rosa.
Most recently, Chef Sardinhah was the
executive chef of the Good Winds Seafood and
Wine Bar in Hatteras Island, on North Carolina's
Outer Banks. While there, he partnered with
local licensed fishermen to provide fresh fish
and shellfish daily to the restaurant, a practice
which was at least partially responsible for the
Urbanspoon and TripAdvisor awards he won while
he was there.
At the Wave Grill, the chef will be showcasing
some of his favorite creations with Nightly
Features as follows:
Monday: Fried Chicken, Mashed Potato'n'
Gravy, Vegetable, Salad or Soup for $12.95
*Tuesday: 1 Dozen Fried Shrimp, French Fries,


Coleslaw, Salad or Soup for $16.95
*Wednesday: 1 Pound Snow Crab Steanel
Red Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Salad :or ':Soup for :
$17.95
Thursday: Prime Rib, Mashed Pctat:oe';
Broccoli, Salad or Soup for $18.95
Friday: Fish Fry, French Fries, Cole;1la ..33alad
or Soup for $12.95
Saturday: Maine Lobster, Steamed :Red
Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Salad or ."'oup for
$18.95
Sunday Funday: 1 Dozen Chicken WOinr.; for
$8.95 or Peel 'n' Eat Shrimp for $8.95 S 1 i %
"We will also be having early bird pecual ironic
3 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day," Gomes said. "That will
be 20 percent off everything on the menu."
She said that the restaurant is an excellent
place to go for local entertainment, too.
"We've had some great success with Jazz Night
on Tuesday, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.," she said. "It's
music to accompany your dining experience, and
reservations are encouraged."
Wednesday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wave
Grill are reserved for Country Night, and they
even clear the stage out of the dining room to
accommodate line dancing.
As if the brand new chef with a new menu,
plenty of inside seating and outside tables and
live music nights weren't enough, Gomes said
there's one more piece of the puzzle yet to be
added that will bring it all together.
"We're going to be doing a new dinner the-
atre," she said. "It will be like dining in a cabaret,
and the new series of shows will be finalizing in
February."
The Wave Grill is located inside the Ramada
Resort Venice at 425 U.S. 41 Bypass North, in
Venice, and is open for breakfast, lunch and
dinner. For more information, visit the Facebook
page or the website at www.ramadavenice.com,
or call 941-308-7700.


The new Wave Grill, at the Ramada Venice Resort, serves American Continental
cuisine. The outside seating area is great for dining or just to have a drink.

"The Sleeping Beauty," one of the grandest and

Theatre Wedneday, Jan. 8, at the Charlotte Harbor
Event Center, the ballet was inspired by French author
Charles Perrault's story "La Belle au bois dormant," or
"The Beauty sleeping in the wood." More than just a
children's fairy tale, the story includes messages about
inner beauty and the powers of love and evil.
This collaboration of Petipa and PyotrTchaikovsky,
who composed the score, first premiered at the
Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1890, and was

Venice Theatre brings you 'Superior


Donuts' by Pulitzer winner Tracy Letts


PROVIDED BY VENICE THEATRE


Venice Theatres first production of 2014 is Tracy
Letts'Chicago-based comedy Superior Donuts.
The play will open Thursday, Jan. 9, in the
Pinkerton Theatre and run through Sunday,
Jan. 26. Performances are at 8 p.m. Tuesday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets range
from $25 to $28 for adults, and $10 to $15 for
students, Tickets now on sale at the theatre's box
office, online at www.venicestage.com, or by phone
at 941-488-1115.
Superior Donuts introduces audiences to a cast
of neighborhood characters headed up by Arthur
Przybyszewski. Arthur is the proprietor of Superior
Donuts, a decrepit shop located in the heart of
Chicago's equally decrepit Uptown neighborhood.
His new employee, Franco Wicks, is an idealistic


self-starter who wants to shake things up a bit with
healthier menu items and poetry nights. Franco's
youthful exuberance reflects the neighborhood itself
which is experiencing a slow but sure gentrification.
Arthur is taken aback by his new hire's enthusiasm.
His own energy is long gone, left in the '60s where
he was dodging the draft, getting arrested at the '68
Chicago riots, and collecting the concert T-shirts he
wears to this day. Throughout this character-driven
piece Arthur and Franco learn from each other, deal
with some difficult life situations and experience the
redemptive power of friendship.
Anyone should be able to appreciate the play
Charles Isherwood of The New York Times compared
to "Norman Lear's groundbreaking shows of the
1970s, which mixed smart jokes and social commen-
tary in satisfying proportions;'but Chicagoans will
find specific treasures. They'll enjoy an authentic

Duo performs for


your listening pleasure


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Debbie Jamieson and Michael Roberts have
been a duo, on and off-stage, for over a year.
Both strong individual musicians, they blend
vocals and create lush guitar as a backdrop to
their folk/American foundation. They throw in
a smattering of country, swing, rock'n'roll, and
some originals.
Their obvious enjoyment of music and each
other creates an atmosphere that one emcee has
claimed "suspended the audience momentarily to
another dimension."Another venue manager has
dubbed them "couples therapy."
Jamieson and Roberts met at the Will McLean
Folk Festival near Brooksville, Fla., and have
played the-Florida folk friival ir(ull including
spring and fall festivals in Barberville, Fla. Local
-enues iiTffdle the Hibiscus Festival and City
Market in Punta-Gorda,
_ and numerous; ',
open mics,
including ,.,ip.
L akeview -. J 'S ,


Restaurant in Englewood on Tuesday nights.
They also enjoytheir gig on Saturdays at Mercer's
Fresh Roasted Coffees in Charlotte Harbor. They
frequently participate at the Punta Gorda Guitar
Army on Thursday evenings in Gilchrist Park.
Originally from Kentucky, Roberts started
playing music in high school with a band that was
influenced by British rock. From there, he moved
to back porch pickin'and honed a repertoire of
songs by John Prine, Marshall Tucker Band, and
the Eagles.
"You can't get out of my part of Kentucky
without some coal minin'and labor songs,";'
Roberts said.
Roberts has lived in Florida for 15 years. Before
he and Jamieson formed their duo, he was a solo
performer in various venues around Citrus County,
Fla. Including the Woodview Coffee House and
Studio Arts Center. Also, he performed with
acoustical bands,

DUO
FROM PAGE 18
Jamieson was born in Miami, Fla.
Her earliest memories include harmo-
nizing with her father and brother,


and singing solo for her kindergarten
graduation. As a teenager, she moved
to Homer, Alaska, where she received
her first guitar. "I would sing and
play basically anywhere they would
let me."
Jamieson returned to Florida in


2001. In 2007 she became a founding
member of a group called "Mood
Swing"that performed at the Captain's
Table in Fishermen's Village in Punta
Gorda, and other local venues. She has
also performed solo or in combination
with various local musicians at benefits


and private parties.
Roberts and Jamieson have spent
their first year together developing a
broad repertoire that features songs
of love and peace. They are currently
in a phase of songwriting, and due to
popular demand, plan to produce their


first commercial CD sometime in 2014.
They claim that they"are a conge-
nial fit for atmospheres more inclined
to listening and less inclined toward
venues with heavy drinking."
Contact the duo through YouTube, or
call 941-204-9707.

BEAUTY INSIDE AND OUT
!. I ,, ... lie serene and beautifully manicured setting, is the Boc
J. : .1 & Country Club in south Sarasota County. This stately
r..Icc f e w p 'u.in ig originally in 1966 offers recently renovated greens
...... ...f pirm's',ic set amongst the statuesque mature oak, cypress, and
b m e n l puli. i I lome to an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, t
,,.. h,, .i. lush surroundings and elegant homes of the gated
wholeiir, ct a comfortable distance from the greens. Golfers enjoy
to, h, ,ro shI I. ckdrop of the preserves while seeing otters, eagles, and
Nandhili ranes in their environment.
The semi-private Boca Royale Golf& Country Club is open to the public and offers newly
renovated practice facilities with putting green, sand bunker, and a pitching and chipping area.
U.S.G.A. golf professional Adrian Matern and assistant professional Scott Holcomb otter lessons to
both members and the golfing public. Holcomb, who has been with Boca Royale since 2009, said the
whole experience begins when golfers are welcomed in the parking lot by courteous staff and proceed
to the pro shop and out to the beautiful grounds. After enjoying the outdoors, golfers are invited inside
to the Georgian style clubhouse for exceptional dining and picturesque views.
"It's not about hitting the drivers and it's not about making par," said Holcomb. "It's about enjoying
all the other things along the way."
Golfers have a choice of five tees ranging from the Diamond Tees, measuring 6,357 yards, to the
Bronze Tees, measuring 4,891 yards. Matern, who qualified for the PGA in South Africa, says that
although it is considered a short course, it has earned its reputation as a true local challenge. "It is
truly a shot-makers layout," Matern said. "With towering oaks hugging narrow fairways, our sharp
doglegs and false carries demand the full attention of even the most skilled golfers."
Memberships are available to non-residents of the Boca Royale community and can be purchased
for single, family, and seasonal terms. A variety of plans offer benefits including member-only golf
tournaments, driving range rights, Bocce, clay tennis courts, and a private fitness center.
Boca Royale's clubhouse offers fine dining at the Fairway Dining Room and a casual dining
experience at the 19th Hole. Boca Royale Golf& Country Club is located at 1601 Englewood Road in
Englewood. For information or tee times call the golf pro shop at 941-474-7475.

Link in calcium channel

blocker and breast cancer

risk needs more study


DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am taking an angiotensin
receptor blocker and a
calcium channel blocker
for my blood pressure,
which work very well to
control my hypertension.
However, I have a history
of breast cancer, and I
have heard that calcium
channel blockers are
associated with new
cases of breast cancer.
My daughter also takes a
CCB, and my question is
whether either or both of
us should ask our phy-
sicians to find another
class of drug because of
my history. H.S.
ANSWER: An article
was published looking at
the risk for breast cancer
in long-term (10 or more
years) users of calcium
channel blockers, and
found a two-fold increase
in risk. Previous studies
did not show an increase
in risk, but these did not
include people who had
taken calcium channel
blockers for so long. If
confirmed, that would
make calcium channel
blockers one of the most
powerful risk factors for
breast cancer.
An accompanying
editorial recommended
against changing from a
calcium channel blocker,
since this data is too
preliminary, and rec-
ommended waiting for
further studies. I agree.
However, because there is
a possible risk, in people
with an increased risk of
breast cancer such as a
personal history or strong
family history it has
been my experience that
both patient and physi-
cian may feel a little less
anxious if a replacement
can be found that con-
trols the blood pressure
as well.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
I'm a 64-year-old male,
and I've never had a
colonoscopy, the main
reason being that all the
clinics in my area require
the patient to come to
the appointment with a
driver or escort. I live in
a somewhat rural area,
and volunteers are hard
to come by. I can't afford
to pay someone to take
off a day from work.
I've attempted to see if
the clinics and myself
could reach some sort of
compromise, and they
won't even talk to me
about it. It seems to me
that in the interest of
saving lives something
could be worked out. I've
written the local papers,


Dr. Roach

emailed and called the
clinics, and even contact-
ed a local TV station, and
absolutely no one will
address this. J.S.
ANSWER: I'll bet a
compromise can be
worked out. I have seen
several ways. One is to
have the colonoscopy
very early in the morning
and stay in the office
until the end of the day.
This can work, particu-
larly if the doctor uses
a short-acting sedative.
Another is to have a
friend or taxi come pick
you up at the end of the
day, so they don't have to
lose a day of work waiting
for you. The last is to
have the colonoscopy
without sedation, which
I have occasionally had
a patient do, but both
you and the gastroen-
terologist would need
to be willing to do this.
I completely agree that
the test can be lifesav-
ing, so working out a
compromise is best. A
visit to the physician
who'll be performing the
procedure, rather than
speaking to his or her
office staff, might enable
you to work it out.

How to eat your artichoke


Dear Readers:
Artichokes are delicious
vegetables, and one of
my favorites! They are
low-calorie, fat-free,
cholesterol-free and a good
source of fiber. However,
some people are a little
intimidated about how to
buy, cook and eat one.
Pick them up and
choose the heaviest ones.
Look for a nice, green,
healthy color, with com-
pact leaves.
You can boil, steam,
bake or grill artichokes
and serve them with your
favorite dipping sauce or,
of course, in melted butter
or mayonnaise, both of
which are tasty but do add
some fat and calories. I
like to use fat-free ranch or
blue-cheese salad dressing.
To eat the cooked arti-
choke, start by pulling off
the outermost leaves, and
dip the base (the fat part
at the end) into dipping
sauce. Now the fun part:
Pull the petal through your
teeth, getting the tasty part
off. When you have pulled
all the petals off, you are
to the "prize" the heart.
Remove the fuzzy choke
from around the heart by
scooping it with a spoon,
then cut up the heart and
enjoy the reward of your
hard work. Heloise

Regarding rice
Dear Heloise: How
do you store rice, and
for how long? J.P. in
California
Well, you've probably
heard somewhere that


eh


Hints from Heloise

white rice is one of those
foods that can be kept
forever, but that is not
really true. Because of
the lack of moisture in
white rice, it can last a
long time. If stored in a
sealed container and kept
in a dark, dry, cool place,
white rice can last for
three years or more.
However, brown rice is
different, and will not last
nearly as long as white
rice. Typically, brown
rice is good for about six
months or so. You can
store it in the refrigerator,
though, and it will last
longer. Heloise

Roasting chicken
Dear Heloise: Instead
of buying a special
roasting vertical pan for
whole chickens, I simply
use my fluted cake pan.
I spray the pan with
cooking oil, then sit the
chicken upright in the
pan, with the centerpiece
of the pan resting inside
the chicken and holding
it. The juices collect in the
ring of the pan, and the
chicken roasts beautifully.

Today is our opportunity

to make a fresh start


DEAR READERS:
Welcome to 2014! It seems
like the world spins faster
every year. With each new
year comes our chance
for a new beginning. It's
an opportunity to discard
destructive old habits and
create healthy new ones.
With that in mind, I will
share my often-requested
list of NewYear's resolutions
that were adapted by my
mother, Pauline Phillips,
from the original credo of
Al-Anon:
JUST FOR TODAY I will
live through this day only.
I will not brood about
yesterday or obsess about
tomorrow. I will not set
far-reaching goals or try to
overcome all of my prob-
lems at once. I know that
I can do something for 24
hours that would over-
whelm me if I had to keep it
up for a lifetime.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
be happy. I will not dwell on
thoughts that depress me.
If my mind fills with clouds,
I will chase them away and
fill it with sunshine.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
accept what is. I will face
reality. I will correct those
things that I can correct and
accept those I cannot.
JUST FOR TODAY. I
will improve my mind. I
will read something that
requires effort, thought and
concentration. I will not be
a mental loafer.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
make a conscious effort to
be agreeable. I will be kind
and courteous to those
who cross my path, and
I'll not speak ill of others.
I will improve my appear-
ance, speak softly, and not
interrupt when someone
else is talking.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
refrain from improving
anybody but myself.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
do something positive to
improve my health. If I'm
a smoker, I'll quit. If I am
overweight, I will eat health-
fully if only for today. And
not only that, I will get off
the couch and take a brisk
walk, even if it's only around


Dear Abby

the block.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
gather the courage to do
what is right and take the
responsibility for my own
actions.
And now, Dear Readers, I
would like to share an item
that was sent to me by I.J.
Bhatia, a reader from New
Delhi, India:
DEARABBY: This year,
no resolutions, only some
guidelines. The HolyVedas
say: "Man has subjected
himself to thousands of
self-inflicted bondages.
Wisdom comes to a man
who lives according to the
true eternal laws of nature."
The prayer of St. Francis
(of which there are several
versions) contains a power-
ful message:
"Lord, make me an
instrument of your peace;
"Where there is hatred, let
me sow love;
"Where there is injury,
pardon;
"Where there is doubt,
faith;
"Where there is despair,
hope;
"Where there is darkness,
light;
'And where there is
sadness, joy.
"Grant that I may not so
much seek to be consoled
as to console;
"To be understood, as to
understand;
"To be loved, as to love;
"For it is in giving that we
receive,
"It is in pardoning that we
are pardoned,
'And it is in dying that we
are born to eternal life."
And so, Dear Readers,
may this new year bring
with it good health, peace
and joy to all of you.
-LOVE, ABBY


"After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which
art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom
come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give
us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as
we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the
power, and the glory forever Amen. Matthew 6:9-13.
Don't try to analyze or sermonize on this prayer just
gather up all your problems and simply slowly and
reverently repeat it. Let it be a daily part of you. In it
you are going to God in the words and in the name of
His Son. You are bound to get results.

East deals, vulnerable passed hand, surely meant
that she held a singleton heart. This
presumed 5-1 heart split would
prevent her from developing

hope. Levitina backed her card-
EAST reading with her courage and led a

hearts, and one diamond.

There were four low hearts

a low card rather than a high card.

However, Sheriff Tom Knight said previously the jail wasnt closing due to nancial issues, citing a lack of medical and food services at the facility, along with the inability to process juvenile offenders, as a few of the reasons for its closure. There were previously 12 fulltime employees at the holding facility in Venice, records show, and it temporarily housed 2,481 arrests in 2012, a number that decreased from 2011. Records also show the number of arrestees being processed at the facility has been in decline since 2007, when it held 3,976 arrestees.County jail in Venice to close todayBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITERNorth Port, Venice to discuss facility SHERIFF ASSUMING PARTIAL DISPATCH FOR VENICEStarting Thursday, Jan. 2, the Sarasota County Sheriffs Office will be taking over emergency dispatch services for the Venice Police Department from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., seven days a week. Venice residents should continue to dial 911 for all emergency situations, an SCSO release states, and should continue to call the VPDs non-emergency number (941-4862444) for non-emergency situations. However, between 11p.m. and 7 a.m., calls to the non-emergency number will be redirected to the Sheriffs Office. Citizens should not notice a change in service, the release states. The switch will not affect the North Port Police Department, which plans to keep its emergency dispatch services in-house. Compiled by Drew WinchesterJAIL | 9 A Nokomis woman accused of throwing things and shouting obscenities over a delayed ight faces charges in Bangor, Maine. Police say Janet Dinardi ignored an ofcers warning Sunday to settle down before Allegiant Air informed ofcers that the unruly passenger would not be allowed on her ight to Florida. Ofcers escorted her from Bangor International Airport and charged her with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. The 54-year-old Dinardi posted bail and is due to be ar raigned in February. Its unclear if she retained a lawyer. A call to Dinardi was not returned. Dinardi has more than 20 civil and criminal arrest records in Sarasota County. They include three DUI convictions. Her driving license was permanently revoked in Florida years ago due to the DUIs. She was convicted in 2008 for driving on a permanently revoked license. Dinardi still has one open case in Sarasota County, led in 2011, for riding her bicycle with no or improper lighting. Other records indicate myr iad trafc violations, including citations for driving an ATV on the road.

An eyewitness set off a manhunt Sunday evening after she said a man ran off with a child into the woods. The incident, reported by a Venice High ninth-grader, triggered an intensive search of the Venice East subdivision in South Venice by the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce deputies, its K-9 Unit, Mounted Unit, and Air Unit. Nothing suspicious was found. Neighbors went into the streets with ashlights to help with the search. They also found nothing. According to an incident report released by the Sheriffs Ofce on Monday, the Worrying, searching but no abductionBy GREG GILESSTAFF REPORTABDUCTION | 4 As the world looked on in horror at the destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, Thomas Guay was ying over it in a military plane hed hitched a ride on, wondering if hed ever see his family again. Guay had been in Bangkok, Thailand, as the storm approached in early November, on an assignment from BMW Motorcycles, for which he is a roving ambassador, enticing prospective purchasers with tales from the open road. He wasnt worried about yet another typhoon approaching the area. Typhoons come all the time, he said. We have typhoon parties. Its never a big deal. Even after his mother, Wendy, who lives in Venice, called with a warning about the storm, he didnt panic. He did, however, suggest that Vanessa and Tank go to a hotel. Unbeknownst to him, they didnt. Haiyan made landfall Nov. 8 as one of the most powerful storms on record, and he didnt hear from Vanessa for four days. Yet he chalked that up to downed power lines, still not aware of the storms impact. The repeated cancellation of ights to the Philippines made it apparent that Haiyan had wreaked havoc, but only when Guay nally ew in after talking his way onto that military plane hes a Gulf War vet could he see just how bad it was. I thought one of two things, he said. Im going to save my wife or bury my wife.LeveledHis ride home from the airport took him through streets covered in sludge, past dead bodies, looters and the wreckage of familiar places. People were knocking over gas pumps so they could dip gas out of the tanks below, he said. When he nally reached his home in Dolongan, his wife, Vanessa nine months pregnant with their second child and 3-year-old son Tank were there, unharmed. My house was ne, he said. The house on the left, the house on the right leveled. He arrived on a friends motorcycle that hed borrowed and ridden past military and police ofcers who were conscating anything worth taking from people on the road. He managed to bring a few pounds of hamburger meat with him. His family hadnt eaten in four days. There is a God, his mother-in-law told him. God bless you. But making sure his family was safe was only the rst part of his mission.Nothing freeAfter reconnecting with his family and ensuring their safety, Guay joined the relief effort, taking a brief break to assist in the delivery of Teddy on Nov. 22. Hed gotten a quick lesson in child-birthing knowing that his second son would be born at home. He made three relief ights on a C-130, standing for each two-hour trip. He said he saw relief supplies stacked up undelivered at airports and being sold in the streets. Theres nothing free in the Philippines, he said. If you dont have money, you dont have anything. It was like that before the typhoon and its worse now. He ew out Dec. 7 on a mom and dad mercy ight, having maxed out his credit cards buying food and supplies. There was nothing left I could do there, he said.

An administrative law judge this week ruled against citizens seeking to delay a city permit to build an open swale on a portion of an upper Venice Beach area. The open dune project is designed to allow runoff from two existing sewer outfalls to percolate into the sand and kill bacteria. The discharge currently ows directly into the Gulf of Mexico. On Dec. 19, the city of Venice led a motion to dismiss a petition led with the Southwest Florida Water Management District by David Dunn-Rankin, an owner of the Suncoast Media Group, on behalf of neighbors. Neighbors are seeking more time to consider an alternative to the swale project. The city argued DunnRankin didnt sufciently establish standing in the matter, and that the petition was vague. On Dec. 30, Administrative Law Judge Bram Canter, who specializes in environmental issues, agreed with the citys motion. Canter granted the motion to dismiss without prejudice, giving Dunn-Rankin until Jan. 7 to le an amended petition clarifying Dunn-Rankin must describe in any amended petition how the project or portions of the project are located on his land and how the project will adversely affect him. The Water Management District, city attornety David Persson noted in an email apprising city council of the recent ruling, joined the city in its motion to dismiss. Neighbors in the area objected to the citys low tech solution to beach pollution building a 2to 3-foot-deep swale about 20 feet wide between Granada Avenue and Alhambra Road in the upper beach area across from the residential area. Residents, who converged on city hall recently to object to the project, want an underground system built, calling the open dune swale project an open septic tank destined to be an eye sore. The judge did not rule on whether dumping untreated bacteria on the beach is a good idea or not, said Dunn-Rankin of the most recent ruling. We led the protest in an attempt to get the city to slow down the work, build out fully costed models on alternatives to dumping bacteria on the beach and let the public look at the alternatives, then decide. Dunn-Rankin said a mediation was scheduled this week with city staff to nd an alternative that made everyone happy. Unfortunately that meeting wont now take place, Dunn-Rankin said. He plans to le a response to Canter by the Jan. 7 deadline.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comJudge delays case over Venice beach swale projectBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR Direct Phone Numbers: General Office 207-1000 Newsroom 207-1000 Circulation 207-1300 Advertising 207-1220 Classified 429-3110 Editorial/Welcome Home/Newsroom Fax 484-8460 Classified Fax 866-949-1426 /Advertising Fax 485-3036 Toll Free 1-866-357-6204 Sunline Internet Services 888-512-6100 Community Web Site http://www.venicegondolier.com Publisher: Tim Smolarick Editor: Ron Dupont Jr. President: Derek Dunn-Rankin Printed on recycled paper.

4A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014 14-year-old complainant said she was standing outside in her driveway in the 100 block of Golf Club Lane when she saw a young female approximately 6 to 8 years old get snatched up by a man who came out from behind the residence. The child allegedly screamed, but then stopped screaming while being carried away halfway through the yard between the homes, according to the witness. No suspicious vehicles were reported in the area. The missing child was described as approximately 4 foot in height with short to shoulder length dark hair, wearing a white T-shirt and lit up shoes, and carrying a ashlight, standing outside just a few doors down. The white male suspect was described as 5 foot, 7 inches with a muscular build, wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt and jeans. His face was concealed by the hood. The witness said she did not know the girl, but said that she was possibly from the neighbor hood, according to the report. She ran into the house to tell a friend staying at her home about the incident, They, in turn, told the witnesss mother. The Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce said there was a lapse of about 10 minutes before they decided to call 911. Deputies cordoned off the area, blocking the entrance to the Venice East subdivision off U.S. 41. A door-to-door canvass of the street was completed, conrming all children were home and safe with their families, according to Sgt. Sean Brophy, in a press release. No one in the local area has called law enforcement to report their child missing, Brophy said. The Venice East Community Association board of directors met early Monday morning. The possible abduction was a hot topic, but nobody had any answers or leads for law enforcement. The lack of a victim had some questioning if it ever happened. We were told that somebody grabbed a child and hustled her away toward the direction of the golf course, said Elmer June, VECA president. My guess is this is not true. Director Joe Patek gave the Sheriffs Ofce a lot of credit for the intensive search that was conducted. Patek was one of the residents who retrieved a spotlight and helped with the search. When asked if the witness could have seen something else, like a father collecting his daughter, Patek said, Id prefer that. That means nothing horrible happened. Ill take that any day. The Sheriffs Office was treating the possible abduction report itself as suspicious in nature and was actively investigating all leads, reported media partner WWSB 7.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A Members of the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce Marine Patrol Unit arrested three Sarasota County men on drug charges Friday after they were found in possession of methamphetamine. At about 5:20 p.m. on Dec. 27, members of the Marine Patrol Unit were in the area of the Publix parking lot located at 8725 Placida Road in Placida. As they were walking back to their vehicle through the parking lot, they noticed that the driver of a gray Dodge pickup was watching them intently while the vehicles passenger was sliding down in his seat. When the deputies drove to the pickup trucks location, it pulled out of the parking space, going the wrong way and pulling onto Cape Haze Drive without stopping at the stop sign. They were able to stop the vehicle a few blocks away. As they approached the truck, the deputies noticed the driver appeared to be trying to hide something. While one ofcer was issuing the driver a warning for failure to stop at the stop sign, the other ofcer was given consent by the driver to search both himself and his vehicle. Inside the vehicle, in a central area of the front seat, deputies found a paper rolled up around a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine. Deputies arrested the driver, Michael Steven Langford, 51, of 1821 Bayonne Street in Sarasota, and his passengers, Brian Randall Frost, 39, and John David Frost, 43, both of 128 Ogburn Street in Osprey. They were all charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia. They were all released on $3,500 bond each. Man arrested twice in two daysA South Venice man was arrested for taking back a bicycle his girlfriend sold to a neighbor earlier in the year. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: Dante Joseph Curtis, 51, was under the inuence of alcohol when he walked over to a residence and entered the garage, yelling This is my bike. While inside, Curtis allegedly took a blue Schwinn sport bicycle and brought it back to his residence, concealing the bike in some bushes. He stared at a witness as he entered his own residence. When the bike owner came home, she saw the bike in Curtiss backyard, and took it back to her garage. When deputies arrived, the suspects girlfriend admitted to selling the bike for $40 to the neighbor months earlier. Curtis was charged on Dec. 28 with burglary of an occupied dwelling, and released that evening. The next day, as deputies were investigating a call a few houses down the street, they ran into the girlfriend again. She had a swollen right eye. The girlfriend told the deputy she was the victim of a battery, and that Curtis threatened to kill her, the neighbor and himself with an ice pick if they didnt drop the burglary charge. After the defendant showed her an ice pick, he threw it on the oor in front of her. He then picked up a cola can and threw it at the victims face, leaving the swollen right eye. According to the girlfriend, Curtis also forced her to call the neighbor and tell her Curtis threatened to shoot the neighbor if she didnt drop the burglary charge. Curtis was arrested, again, on Dec. 29 and charged with aggravated domestic battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, and proper ty damage under $1,000. Bond was not available on the aggravated battery and assault charges.Exchanging batteriesA Nokomis couple whove had domestic violence charges led against each other in the past had more charges led this weekend. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: On Dec. 27, Brian Edward Morton, 27, and his live-in girlfriend were watching television. She said he would become upset and pull the plug from the wall. When hed walk away, shed plug the television back in. Finally, after she plugged the television back in, he pushed her in the stomach with both hands, causing the victim to step back a foot. Morton, 400 block of East Colonia Lane, was charged with domestic battery. Bond was set at $5,000. Authorities indicated alcohol was involved.Child handoff goes awryA Venice man was arrested after the mother of his child threatened to withhold a father-son weekend. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: The mother had arrived at the residence of James D. Babcock, 23, with his child when they began to argue by a re pit. When the mother decided to take their child with her instead of leaving him with Babcock, he allegedly pushed her to the ground. Babcock, 3700 block of East Venice Avenue, was arrested Dec. 27 and with charged with domestic battery. Bond was not available. Authorities indicated alcohol was involved.Uncooperative man arrestedA Venice man refused to come to the door when deputies arrived to investigate a report of a child screaming, glass breaking and a woman and man yelling. According to a Venice Police Department report: Deputies could see Nicholas Allen Hrovat, 35, laying in a bed, with the door locked and the lights out, while they gave commands for him to come out. Finally, the woman gave deputies a key. They entered and cuffed Hrovat, placing him in a kitchen chair while questioning him. Initially uncooperative, Hrovat eventually said he was in a verbal argument with the woman about her not driving. He admitted only to throwing a table and breaking the screen in the door. Hrovat, 200 block of Piazza di Luna, was arrested Dec. 30 and charged with domestic battery for pushing the woman up against the wall in the kitchen with one hand on her neck. Bond was not available.

BUSINESS MATTERSCONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 6A WEDNESDAY JANUARY 1, 2014 Putting a different twist on menu items is the objective of the owners of Caf Evergreen. For example, they use sheep cheese because it is healthier than a cow cheese and better than goat cheese. They also serve Ker water, home brewed by the owners who believe this ltered, alconized and ironized water is much healthier than tap or bottled water. It is all about organics and probiotics, according to Ted Weinberger, who with his wife Annette recently opened the restaurant at 801 South Tamiami Trail in Nokomis next to Captain Eddys Seafood restaurant at Colonia Lane. Looking around the area to nd somewhere to relocate his next restaurant, he found and fell in love with the rst bank and post ofce in Sarasota, the old Nokomis Bank built in 1923. Four years ago, he had chosen Warm Mineral Springs in North Port for his rst Caf Evergreen. In the past year and a half, it became obvious the city and county were not agreeing on the future of the Springs. When it closed, so did his restaurant. Determined to make the restaurant work elsewhere, he moved a few miles north to Nokomis and has spent several months creating this unique location. Caf Evergreen has an organic menu restaurant, a juice and coffee bar, and a produce stand. In the spacious dining room around an elegant large replace are 11 tables seating 44 people. On the outside patio, area diners eat while enjoying the Florida lifestyle and watching the sunset. Chefs use about 90 percent organic greens from their own produce stand and everything is prepared from scratch. Weinbergers philosophy is to use items having all the good probiotics to create healthy lunches and dinners. The chefs make all their own dressings and sauerkraut. Ker water is available with all items on the menu, and all the wines are organic. I took something everyone recognizes and made it what I call a Reuben on steroids, a really nice healthy meal, he said. Our menu contains a lot of the favorite items people enjoyed at the Springs and those are combined with new items I want to serve at dinner like Kelp Noodle Stir Fry and Beef Brisket. There are avocado and pesto wraps, healthy style sides, organic meat, and sh and vegetarian burgers. Dishes are available for people who are vegan, vegetarians and most importantly, people who just enjoy nice food. The restaurant opens at 11 a.m. and serves till 9 p.m. A great way to start a day is in the juice and coffee bar, which runs from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. They serve 100 percent organic drinks using ingredients from local suppliers and organic items they can only get from California. The selection of smoothies includes inter esting supplements that can be added, together with a selection of fruit juices that have been juiced at the bar. To the rear is the produce stand, also opening at 9 a.m. but closing at 7 p.m. Set out on shelving is an interesting selection of fresh fruits and vegetables displayed in attractive baskets. Organic peanut butter, milk, eggs and produce are from local farms and suppliers. Weinberger said when they want to make something for the diners, the chefs enjoy going to the produce stand, taking it off the shelf and a few minutes later, people are eating it. An interesting add-on is giving diners the ability to go to the produce stand and get something to take home. Having just opened his restaurant, Weinberger employs more than 30 people. Following training in the caf, he plans to introduce lunch and dinner specials. There is parking for 35 vehicles, and Caf Evergreen is open seven days weekly. From Milwaukee, Wisc., Weinberger has been in the restaurant business for more than 27 years, starting as an employee, then opening his rst restaurant when he moved to Winterhaven. Subsequently, he owned a few more in that area until moving to North Port ve years ago to open Caf Evergreen in Warm Mineral Springs. Caf Evergreens objective is to serve food people will recognize but are not going to realize it is so much healthier, he said. Then he explained, An example is the burger, grass-fed on organic feed so diners will get just as much Omega-3 as they do in a piece of salmon. It is not what the meat is but what the cow is eating.Caf Evergreen offers food that offers so much moreBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST Looking at UPS stores in the locality, Dan Lester decided a Nokomis location was the best. Adjoining the new Publix, the location had to draw more business, and it was close to home. Those were some of the reasons that Lester, with his sons Mike and Chris, chose to open the UPS Store at 1079 Tamiami Trail North in Nokomis Village Plaza. They will weigh, pack and ship packages or package it for their customers. For business cards, church bulletins, menus, brochures and iers, they have speedy, full-service in-house printing. Additional services include sending faxes and emails, printing metered mail tape and selling USPS stamps, packaging, boxes, tape, bubble wrap and labels. Further, for overseas recipients, they arrange UPS delivery. Lester is from Lakeland, where he worked in the family business building cellphone site towers and selling services to major cellular companies in this and other states. He maintained all Doppler radar National Weather Service sites in the U.S. and overseas for 20 years, selling the business in 2006. The store is open from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and Saturday mornings; call 941-882-3711.Opening CelebrationStart the New Year with a family event featuring a Classic Car and Truck Show plus a few surprises on Saturday, Jan. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Galleria, 1500 E.

Call 941-207-5055.Organic Smoothies & MorePreparing to open later this month are Kathy Dippolito and her daughter Alexa with their new Island Organics Juice & Smoothie Bar at 231 W. Miami Ave. We will serve plenty of all-organic smoothies and juice, vegan and gluten-free baked goods, including cookies, cupcakes and more goodies, Kathy Dippolito said. They will have a few tables for diners.Family Fun WeekendMake plans to bring everyone parents, grandkids, relatives and neighbors for a fun weekend at the annual Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club Festival of Fine Arts & Crafts and much more. The event will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 17, 18 and 19, at the Venice Muncipal Airport Festival Grounds near the South Circus Bridge.

Saturday and Sunday are more sedate for the Fine Arts & Crafts Festival, with the Duck Pluck prize drawings for adults and kids, a childrens play area and top entertainment all day, including the Irish Rotarian Ken McBride.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7AWith 2014 now here, business owners representing a selection of stores and services in this area spoke to the Venice Gondolier Sun and gave their opinions of the past year and what they see coming in the future. Doing very well, future good, except for the Affordable Care Act, emphasized John Giglio, president & CEO of Freedom Boat Club responded. Sales have increased 16 percent, and we have increased our staff by 13 percent. Both increases were slightly higher than budgeted. I think that the economy has improved dramatically. As you drive around and notice new homes being built and many of our customers mention that they are new to the area. Most importantly, I think consumer condence in general is up. People are no longer waiting to make large purchases; they are engaged and poised to enjoy their recreational time on the Gulf Coast. We are budgeting for another growth year on the revenue side with several new locations planned in 2014. I wish the outlook was better on the employee side. Unfortunately, my company is right in the crosshairs of the Affordable Care Act. I currently have 94 total employees, equating to right around 50 full-time equivalents. If I add more employees, I run the risk of major expense increases if I cross the 50 full-time equivalent thresholds. As a company that has always provided and contributed to a very robust benets program, I am now forced to try to do more with less and try to navigate this very complex government program. As a local business owner, in a service business, we need a steady inux of new residents into the area. I think that this area will continue to attract residents from other areas of the country, and my business and other service businesses will continue to grow. I think that as long as people remember the lessons of the past, the economy in this area will continue to grow and thrive. Florida Coconut Oil Company owner Patrick Keigher expresses caution. Our mall has 14 businesses, but only eight are what I would call retail. The others are service businesses. We have seen some growth with three new tenants this year, Florida Coconut Oil Co., Artesian Chic hand-painted furniture and Sharing Transformation facials and gifts. Basically, the Venice Centre Mall spaces are all full. We had a great summer business, but a very slow October, November and December. All of the businesses are privately owned and operated and I dont see any new hiring for 2014. The Mall, in many ways, is out of the pedestrian trafc, which mostly goes to Miami and Venice Avenues. Our benet is the rents are much less expensive than the spaces on those streets. The busiest day of the week is Saturday mornings when the Venice Farmers Market is on Tampa Avenue. Although our trafc is higher than 2012, the potential customers are apparently still feeling the down economy and seem to be shopping more than buying. Talking with the other vendors, I nd that most have not seen a change from 2012 to 2013 and do not see much of a differ ence for 2014 although everyone is hoping for a great season. A phenomenal year, and our community involvement has beneted the business, said Steve Burnett of Burnett Painting. has been an absolutely banner year for us. A growth of 56 percent led to additional hiring. A phenomenal year and I did not know if we could service more. May and June were busy and it did not taper off. For 2014, we are budgeting a 20 percent increase. There is still a market share available in Sarasota but we do not go after that because we are so busy in Venice and surrounding towns. If we realize 20 percent growth, we will need to hire more people. New construction is way up; a standard indicator, cash ow, is up for everyone. People are a little more relaxed and have more to spend on decorating their homes, which benets our industry. We have dramatically stepped up our community involvement in the past two years, which has given us more awareness and been a benet to the business. Growth and expansion are priorities for Bob Cushing, co-owner of Venice Street Legal shuttle service. We did see growth in our business during 2013 and expect to see more growth in 2014 as the visitors and year-round residents continue to learn about and use those services. A new addition was the concierge level of service for folks wanting to go to a restaurant, the theater, store, their doctor or for any personal shopping. Many residents are no longer able to drive or have only one car, and we help them meet their daily needs. They call us to set up a reservation for pickup. Tourism can be an overall economic driver for this region and for our business. The regional authorities need to increase awareness to potential visitors. Venice Street Legal, supported by our advertisers, offers free shuttle service within downtown and to the Venice Beach and local museums. In 2013, three Historical Tours were added and this is anticipated to grow in 2014. Plans are to add parttime drivers to provide the services our customers expect. Very busy past year and very positive about 2014 is Sandy McGowan, downtown merchant and 2013 president of Venice Mainstreet. The downtown business community and Venice Mainstreet have experienced a very busy year in 2013. Venice is very lucky to have a vibrant and diverse downtown. Many new businesses have opened and added to our retail and dining offerings. Many more day-trippers from the surrounding areas are visiting. All the support of our local citizens is appreciated as much as we look forward to the snowbirds returning each year. Mainstreet member ship has increased by almost 50 percent as we have one of the most active MainStreet organizations in the state. With art and craft festivals, car shows, fashion shows and other community events, we have something to offer almost any interest. The community calendar is full! Venice is a great place to invest in a business as has been shown by the many new additions this year. I look forward to a banner year in 2014.Busy 2013 will it lead to banner year in 2014?By ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONJohn Giglio, president & CEO of Freedom Boat Club: Sales have increased 16 percent, and we have increased our sta by 13percent.

8A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014 As the business writer for the Venice Gondolier Sun I thought it would nice to take a fun look back at the business year in 2013. Do you remember these events? (The numbers correspond to the numbers under the photos.) (1) In the spring, I climbed a contractors ladder to capture Mike Pachota and his son Justin on the first floor infrastructure of their new restaurant, Fins at Sharkys. (2) In the summer, I recorded hostess Barbara Isaacson inviting diners to enjoy their final visit to the Irish Pub of TJ Carneys as it was closing. (3) A rare opportunity occurred to photograph Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson Thinking Clean Thinking Green with a dump truck the latest environmentally green refuse collection vehicle. (4) Big Belly appeared downtown and I found Rosanne Brown of Venice Stationers throwing the paper in this new automatic waste bin. (5) We had a peep as Jacquie Schlitter showed us how to ride by lying astride her fast recumbent cycle on which she can reach speeds in excess of 30 mph. She is co-owner of Vito Bikes & Trikes. (6) Finally we hit Facebook big, with more than 22,000 views of this photo taken during our very wet summer. A warning sign was posted on the median of U.S. 41 in Nokomis, shocking driv ers. It said, MANATEE ZONE. Was it really that wet? The Sarasota County Sheriffs office later reported a malfunction of their new sign No texting and driving.I look back at the fun business stories of 2013By ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST #1 #2 #3 #4 #6 #5 481713 150 Pond Cypress Rd.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A he lived that had been nearly in the direct path of Haiyan, and funds to help the recovery process. In the nearly two months since Haiyan struck, relief efforts have dwindled, he said, and the worlds attention is focused elsewhere even though little has improved. The villagers where I am, in Samar, are in trouble, he said. There are still dead bodies. Anybody who says every thing is ne is wrong.Beyond familyHis new goal is to bring attention back to the plight of his wifes native land, and try to help relieve the suffering there. Food and building supplies remain in short supply, and merchants in nearby Tacloban, from or through which supplies must come, have tripled their prices, he said. His plan is to relocate his family near Clark Air Base, outside Luzon, until they can get the documents needed to come to Venice, his base for the work he did for BMW in South America. While hes waiting, he wants to get back into the relief effort. Hes hoping to raise $20,000 to get the use of a pickup truck and buy building supplies, using his connections throughout Southeast Asia and his linguistic ability he speaks six languages to get things done. And theres one very special task. I need to rebuild the school because the kids have nowhere to go, he said. Little of the money would need to be used for other purposes, he said. It costs me nothing to live there, he said. It costs nothing to feed me. Hes planning to leave on Jan. 15. This is beyond my family, he said. Somebody has to step up and do something, and if it has to be me, its got to be me.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.comDISASTERFROM PAGE 1 Its unknown what impact the jail closure will have on the Venice and North Port police departments, as following the closure today, all arrestees will be transported to the main jail in downtown Sarasota. Venice Police Chief Tom McNulty said his department would denitely feel an impact from the closure and added that he would take a month or two months to determine what those impacts are. Were going to make it work; we have to, McNulty said. Hopefully the impact will be as minimal as possible. Meanwhile, NPPD Chief Kevin Vespia said it would take time to collect and assess the data following the jails closure in terms of potential impact. He added that arrests in North Port were down around 8 percent in 2013. I dont think its going to be substantial, Vespia said of the closure. Were not going to change the way we do business, thats for sure. If someone needs to go to jail, well take them to jail. North Port city commissioners and the Venice City Council will have a joint meeting Jan. 6 at the Morgan Family Community Center to discuss a host of topics, but one of those discussions will lean toward the jail and its possible future. Venice Mayor John Holic said he understood the sheriffs decision to close the jail but was disappointed it came after the 2014 budget process. While Venice didnt have a choice, Holic said Monday, he has some ideas that he hopes could one day reopen the holding facility, which is housed in the same building as the Venice Police Department on Ridgewood Avenue. Holic thinks a municipal service taxing unit, or MSTU, would not touch the sheriffs budget, but instead represent a different way to go about collecting the money the SCSO needs for that budget. While Holic admits the reduction of taxes for Venice and North Port residents for the sheriffs services would be picked up by residents in unincorporated areas of the county, he thinks it could potentially be a fairer way for municipal citizens to be assessed. We should be paying tax dollars for those services we receive and not have to pay for the services we dont receive, Holic said. North Port Vice Mayor Rhonda DiFranco, a former SCSO sergeant, wrote in an email to the Sun that anything is open to discussion for the future of the jail, including holding cell or transport options. North Port Mayor Jim Blucher said North Port feels a little differently about the jail closure compared to Venice, adding that the city has a good record with Knight. North Port will eventually have to look to bring some of the services the sheriff provides in-house, Blucher said, like a SWAT team or drug programs, but for now, he likes where things stand with Knight and the Sheriffs Ofce. I would hope we dont get into that battle with the county, Blucher said.

When you have a persistent pain in the neck area, it may be caused by nerve irritations or pinched nerves. It may also be the symptom of early stages of joint or disc degeneration. The neck or cervical area of the spine contains the upper portion of the spinal cord and eight pairs of spinal nerves. These nerves are connected to almost every part of your body. Misalignments in the cervical area cannot only cause pain and discomfort in the neck but in other parts of the body as well. Because of constant movement, the neck is very susceptible to stress and strains, especially if some vertebrae are out of alignment. Through gentle manipulation and other therapies your doctor chiropractic can correct the misalignments and bring welcome relief from pain and discomfort.

OUR VIEWPressure is on Florida to prepare well for growthFor years weve heard the predictions and the talk about how northern baby boomers would swell Floridas population. Well, apparently that time has come. Sometime in the next few months, Florida will surpass New York as the nations third most populous state. Only California and Texas will top the Sunshine State. That prediction is based on numbers released Monday from the Census Bureau that show Florida only a few thousand residents behind New York. At Floridas rate of growth including the 50,000 New Yorkers who move here every year it is just a matter of months, or weeks, before Florida is No. 3. The shift in status can be accredited to a couple of factors. One, is the loss of manufacturing jobs in Upstate New York and the other is the obvious New Yorkers and others getting tired of the cold winters. Besides the inux of baby boomers, the increase in Floridas population base is also due to our changing demographics with more immigrants moving to the state each year. The growth is good news inasmuch as it will boost Floridas tax base. The increase in population could also mean more representatives in Congress and a surge in federal dollars in grants for things like roads, housing, health care and education. All that, along with the bragging rights that go along with being No. 3, add a little prestige to Floridas image. But, with the growth and all the new workers, families and retirees, comes responsibility. The state must be prepared to handle all that growth and come off as advertised to those newcomers. The weather will surely do its part we dont have to worry about that. What we must avoid, however, is becoming what too many northern cities are known for a lack of ser vices, crowded highways and cramped health care facilities. Living the Florida dream should mean easy access to health care. It should mean safe roads with only the unavoidable rush-hour gridlock. It means we must beef up city, county and state services to make sure our parks, beaches and streets stay clean. We have to look to the future of our water supply and ensure that we have all we need for future generations. Safety is another issues that is always at the forefront of seemingly everyones concern. What Florida cannot do, or should not do, is continue to cut back the state payroll at the cost of state police and parks and environmental workers. We cannot afford to put off road projects that will make our highways safer. And, we should not continue to deny health care to many underpaid and underprivileged by refusing Medicaid expansion. It is great news that Florida is growing. It will mean jobs and nancial opportunities for small and large businesses alike. How we manage and prepare for all those newcomers will be the differ ence between that growth continuing and Florida becoming even more attractive and second thoughts by those looking to relocate to a place to call home. Caring is at heart of this communityGood morning and Happy New Year, Venice. Its 2014. Can you believe it? It doesnt feel like we are starting our 15th year into the new century; yet, here we are celebrating another January 1. The entire Venice Gondolier Sun staff wishes that the New Year brings you happiness, peace and the answers to your prayers. As always, we are thankful to you, our readers, for allowing us to be a part of your routine. It is indeed an honor to serve this community. January is exciting for us as we make nal preparations for our annual Best of Venice program that will be held Jan. 25 at the Plantation Golf and Country Club. The ballots have been cast and counted, our advertising reps are scurrying about to get the invitations to the business owners and we look forward to awarding all of our winners again this year. Last year was our rst attempt to have a formal celebration and it turned out magnif icent; it was such a rewarding experience to celebrate your decisions with our business community. Our staff has been working really hard to make sure this year equals the thrill of our 2013 event, and we look forward to sharing an evening with the business community. Without your participation in the voting, we could not recognize those businesses chosen and it means an awful lot to us and the community. Thank you for taking the time to make this happen. As we begin a new year, often we reect on the past and either hope to change things with our new resolutions or we want to make the things in our world that work great even better. We have so many positives in our community that you would be hard-pressed to get it working better. One of this communitys most endearing qualities is the belief that our people possess a belief that we can in fact make things better. Our community strives to make life a better for those who are not as fortunate as most. Countless volunteer hours are given by citizens to help out those in need. Every day, there is an act of kindness that most of us will never know occurred but the effect on the human race is monumental. From feeding the hungry, caring for our elderly and watching over our mental health wellness, the things this community does out of kindness is incredible. There are so many organizations out there dedicated to helping humanity that it would take days to gather all the information and inform you. If you were forced to describe the impact the people and the organizations have on our community, in my mind the word would be hope. Hope is pumped into our community like sunshine in the summer. Everywhere you turn there is someone trying to help make it better, nd a cure, save an animal, you name it. We can almost guarantee there is someone somewhere working on a solution. If a new situation arises, most certainly a group of people will come together, create an action plan and be working on a solution faster than you can get a pizza delivered. It is incredible to watch this community oper ate, and we are truly blessed to call this place home. So as we begin 2014, working toward a better tomorrow, we the people can go about our routines knowing that in our community, the New Year will most certainly bring us all hope. Tim Smolarick is publisher of the Venice Gondolier Sun.Now power companies can charge us for unbuilt plantsEditor: A recent article in AARP sur prised me because it was news to me. Apparently, a state law has allowed electric utilities to charge an additional fee for new nuclear power plants before they are operating, even those on the drawing board. I really dont keep up with the laws the Legislature passes but I am sure powerful lobbies do. It is not a secret and the information is available to the public. I am trying to remember the last time I reached out to nd the latest from the state Legislature. The focus now is Florida Power and Light use of cost recovery fees to nance two nuclear power plants in Miami. This law surprised me as much as the people in that small California town were surprised to nd that the city manager was making almost a million dollars a year. I think you know where I am going with this. Lets think about this for a minute. What was that thing in Japan? Something about a total disaster concerning a nuclear power plant, was that it? It appears the world is turning to the greenest of all energy, fuel cells, but to consider nuclear energy is like asking the auto industry to go back to the horse. Duke Energy abandoned plans to build a nuclear power plant in Levy County after collecting about a billion dollars in cost recovery fees. Do you feel like the people in that small California town who discovered the salary of their city manager? I do. We go about our lives just trying to survive day to day and what is the most boring of all, researching the laws that are passed year after year with the help of powerful lobbies. How many of us would go to Tallahassee to nd out just what affects us? I thought we had someone there to protect us. That should at least give you a laugh.Thomas Perricone EnglewoodMy thanks to the sta at VRMCEditor: While visiting from the cold north (New Jersey), I brought my 95-year-old mother over to Venice from Fort Lauderdale. I wound up taking her to the ER, and she was admitted for several days. I want to thank the devoted staff at Venice Regional for their continued compassion and patience while she was there. Case Manager Karen alleviated my worries and concerns by nding out answers and providing me with information. RNs Felicia and Christine were sweet and dependable to my mom. CVTs Louis and Robert were cheerful and helpful. Doctors may get the respect and the high income, but without these individuals, patients would not get what they need. Thank you, thank you!Denise Gastineau VeniceArticle should not have been on Gondolier Sun front pageEditor: This is in reference to the article titled, Man gets texts from his wife as she vandalizes his home. I was disappointed to see this article as the lead, front page, newsworthy article in the weekend edition. Ive grown to appreciate your coverage of all aspects of life in Venice and agree there should be no stone left unturned. With that in mind, however, I believe the vast majority of your readers would expect to see this article in the Police Beat section. There was no pleasing quality to having the article on the Gondolier front page.Mike Clukey VeniceGondolier Sun picked wrong article for front pageEditor: Really?!? Like many of us, I had friends and family visiting during the holiday, some familiar with Venice, some rst-time visitors. I love to show off my beautiful piece of Paradise. Everyone I know and who knows me, knows that I love Venice. In the Venice Gondolier Sun, I enjoyed the showcase article by Bob Mudge Venice is a State of Mind. He did a super job. I bought several issues to give my visitors and was looking for ward to purchasing the second installment in the Dec. 28th issue to give them as well. I was disappointed to see the Venice Gondolier Sun headline 4 inches high, in color, regarding an estranged wife vandalizing her husbands home in North Port. Was this your best choice? Really? Joy Brandt Venice Editors Note: While the article itself was 3.25 inches deep in a cyan-colored box, the headline was a half-inch deep and was printed in black.Guest columnist had selective memory about De LayEditor: Joe Giorgiannis guest column, which was published 12/28/13, poked fun at the behavior of various political gures. One was former Speaker Tom De Lay for his guest appearance on Dancing With the Stars. The column stated, And MISSION STATEMENTTo be the superior quality, low-cost provider of information and adver tising in the local communities we serve. We will continuously improve: the value of information provided to our customers; the value and results for our advertisers; the quality of life in our communities; the return on our stockholders investment while providing a fair, challenging and rewarding workplace for productive employees.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A Here we go again. A new year and time for a businessmans forecast of the economic climate for the country and, in particular, for our part of Florida. Spending, employment or lately unemployment, ination and population growth have been our focus in these annual columns. Instinct and experience suggest we will continue to have an improving local economy, outpacing the nation as a whole. A year from now it will be moving at an even faster pace. Our federal government still will be putting off paying the piper for unsustainable entitlement programs. I am no economist with sophisticated economic models of taxes, spending, savings or the velocity of money over the years, but most of my forecasts have been close to the mark. It helps to pay attention to critical numbers like the Leading Indicators Index, the ination rate, the Consumer Condence Index, the money supply and the interest rate target of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. I am encouraged to continue this annual amateur economic forecast after going back and reading the Wall Street Journal of Sept. 13, 2007. A survey of 55 economists pegged the risk of recession at only 36 per cent. While most of my 15 annual forecasts have been close to the mark, I, too, underestimated the severity of the recession we were facing in 2008, though not as far off as the chief economist for global investment bank Bear Stearns, who put the chances of a recession at only 10 percent. Not surprisingly, it went bust in 2008. Without throwing too many numbers around, here goes my forecast for 2014. In our corner of Florida, the number of vacant homes continues to shrink. Foreclosures a hangover from the rebuilding boom that followed Hurricane Charley in 2004, and the loose mortgage standards that prevailed until early 2008 are higher than the Florida average, but are falling. Our population, fueled by the rst of World War II baby boomers now reaching their mid-60s, is growing. This is lifting home prices and encouraging new construction. The growth spillover effect is not just the new retiree homeowners. It is jobs and population growth created by those who serve retirees, themselves requir ing housing and services. While still short of its 2007 level, the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index has been rising for the last ve months. Consumer spending is the lions share of our economy. Consumer mood and behavior are big determiners of our spending. The Conference Boards Index of Leading Economic Indicators is up for the fth straight month. It tracks such things as hours in manufacturing, new orders in manufacturing, stock prices, building permits and the money supply. A bothersome statistic is credit card debt. The average is down a little from three years ago. However most of that reduction has been achieved by some consumers getting debtfree, while the average of credit card debt holders remains about $15,000. What the year ahead looks like to this businessman is this: continued growth in home prices and home building. Unemployment should continue to decline. Wage rates will creep up. Retail sales activity will continue to increase, but at less than boom levels. Every forecaster is entitled to a caveat. Just how the FDIC can create money by decree and control its impact on the broader economy still escapes my understanding. In my Florida lifetime, I have seen our population double and double again, then double once more. It is still growing, and maybe that is all you need to know to have some condence in an improving local economy in 2014. Derek Dunn-Rankin is chairman of the Sun Coast Media Group. He can be reached at derekdr@ sun-herald.com.I see a solid economic year locally in 2014 Derek Dunn-Rankin who could forget former Speaker of the House of Representatives Congressman Tom De Lays conviction of misappropriation of funds, and being sentenced to three years in prison? Mr. Giorgiannis selective memory seems to have overlooked the fact that De Lays conviction was eventually overturned and he was exonerated, with all charges dismissed. Mr. Giorgianni also seems to have forgotten perhaps the most memorable peccadillo in modern history, for mer President Clinton having an affair with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Ofce and vehemently denying it until the blue dress revealed him as a brazen liar.James Moran VeniceLETTERSFROM PAGE 10 rrfrrntbrfftrrnfr rrnrnrrn fnrrtt frrntbrfrr rnt rnr tt fntbr ttr fbfb b f 480546 rfntbn t ntt t rfntnbtb rb 481156 481323 NEW WINE SELECTION!

SPORTSCONTACT US ROB SMITH SPORTS EDITOR 941-207-1107 rsmith@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 12A WEDNESDAY JANUARY 1, 2014 HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALLIn his last collegiate football game, Jamie Owen did what he does best. He sacked the quarterback. The Venice High School graduate was one of three players to represent Maryville College (Tenn.) on the South squad in the Dec. 13 D3 Senior Classic in Salem, Va. With the temperature in the 30s, the defensive end had two sacks and ve tackles for the losing team in the all-star game. Owen, who led the USA South Athletic Conference in sacks this season, nished his career two shy of the schools all-time sack record. I started, and I played every snap of the game, Owen said Thursday, when he returned home to Knoxville after four days visiting Southwest Florida for the holiday. It was awesome. It was a great experience, he said. It was very fun. Owen said the rst sack came four or ve plays into the game, the second before halftime. Then they started double-teaming me, he said. Owen faced offensive linemen he said he hadnt played before. He beat a man-to-man assignment for the rst sack. He didnt really know my style of play, he said. I came off the line. He threw his hands out try ing to get a hold of me. He said he swatted the linemans hands with his left hand, grabbed the quarterback with his right and barely got touched at all.

Send updates about area athletes to Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol. com.VHS graduate Owen finishes career on high noteBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT COURTESY PHOTOVenice High grad Jamie Owen had two sacks and ve tackles in the D3 Senior Classic. Two former NFL players and a former MLB player joined a former NBA player to take part in a celebrity golf fundraiser tournament at Bobcat Trail on Saturday. The tournament, which was the brainchild of Darrell Gadsden, a former Atlanta Hawks player, featured nine teams of four golfers each. Gadsden is a member of the Cooper Street Community Learning Center board of directors and the tournament raised money for the center, which has lost a lot of government funding in the last two years. Gadsdens wife, Arlene, grew up going to Cooper Street, and their company, Gadsden Property Investment Inc., was one of the tournaments primary sponsors. Former NFL and USFL running back Albert Bentley and former NFL lineman Anthony Hargrove both took part in the tournament. Bentley was born in Naples and played football at Immokalee High School, while Hargrove grew up in Charlotte County and played at Port Charlotte High School. Hargrove was very intent on giving back to Cooper Street after spending a lot of time at the center during his childhood. Im very, very grateful for many reasons, he said. I lost my parents at a very early age. I was born in Brooklyn, and I was moved to Florida in 1993. Coming from New York City to Charlotte County, Florida, is a (major) cultural shock. I really didnt know how to address people here in Florida and Cooper Street was a place of familiar faces. It was a place I could go and nd understanding and people relating to the issues I was having in my life. People at Cooper Street understood what I needed as a young child with no parents and looking for guidance. A few teens who currently attend Cooper Street were on hand at the fundraiser and listened as Hargrove gave a speech after accepting one of the two prizes he won. Rounding out the eld were several Bobcat Trail members and a surprise celebrity guest: former Kansas City Royals and Cincinnati Reds pitcher Jeff Montgomery, whose father is a course member. Gadsden said he was satised with the turnout, especially since he only came up with the idea two months ago. Were gonna try to make it annual, he said. This years not as good as wed like it to be, but its a start. My hope is that, through some of the sources I have, I can get it to grow and get some larger corporations to actually do some (big) donations to the fund.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com.Former pros play for good causeBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER SUN PHOTO BY BETSY WILLIAMSChris Walling stands back and watches his team member, Albert Bentley, hit the golf ball early Saturday morning at Bobcat Trail Golf Club in North Port.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A For us septuagenarians and octogenarians the words sound like types of dinosaurs but just mean people in their 70s and 80s staying in physical and mental shape to play golf is an ongoing challenge. I must admit that sometimes when I wake up in the morning, I feel more like a dinosaur trying to return to life than just a stiff, mildly arthritic 72-year-old. The physical challenges we senior duffers face would be amusing if they werent so painful. Consider (briefly, I promise) the aches and pains a few of my golf buddies deal with in their pursuit of a decent score and the other mysterious perks with which the golf gods lure us on. In reverse chronological order: Eighty-eight yearold Ray has macular degeneration and sometimes, as he gets ready to swing, the ball looks like an egg. This is getting ridiculous! How do you hit an oval when you know the ball is supposed to be round? Eighty-one year-old Jerry is prone to mini seizures, which he has learned to deal with wisely by waiting for these dizzying blackouts to pass. But sometimes after such episodes, hes been known to hit and drive off toward the wrong hole. Seventy-five year-old Scott loves the game so much he has under gone five surgeries on arthritic joints in his hands and wrists so he can continue to grip his clubs with a soft touch and maintain his great average score of 84. All I need now is to live to be 85 so I can break my age. Ive been lucky, so far. Only my lower back has been acting up, probably from the impact of walking nine holes on my local course day after day. Ive come to understand that throwing myself into such bursts of physical energy is definitely not as good for my game as isolating one specific skill, like chipping from the fringe of the green, and practicing that shot over and over again. But I just love my late afternoon walks too much to quit. Clearly, all of us old duffers chase the muse around the course as long as we possibly can. What keeps us at it? Whats the psychological motivation for this parade of dinosaurs? Dylan Thomas probably offers the best answer in a famous poem, in which he writes: Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. But everybodys got a different story about how they fell for the game and why they stick to it, so all I can do is speak for myself. Looking back at 50 years of working life, Im one of those retirees who has to admit, with some regret, that I frequently lacked a 100 percent commitment toward my profession. In my own mind, I was a writer, an artist; but I taught school to earn a living. Consequently, I couldnt give 100 percent to either of my selves. And the ironic and surprising truth about how Im approaching golf now, in retirement, is that Im studying and practicing the game with precisely the kind of all-in approach that was missing throughout much of my earlier life. Some old friends and family members kid me about the devotion I now bring to a mere game, but to them the old English professor in me offers these lines by Robert Frost, from Two Tramps in Mud Time: But yield who will to their separation, My object in living is to unite My avocation and my vocation As my two eyes make one in sight. Is it too ridiculous to think that in golf, this retiree has finally been able to unite avocation and vocation? If you could see me studying YouTube videos on pitching and chipping, then going out to practice for hours, youd understand. I am working. Indeed, my avocation and vocation are finally one. So Frost deserves the last words here. After the four lines above, the poem concludes: Only where love and need are one, And the work is play for mortal stakes, Is the deed ever really done For Heaven and the futures sakes.

WELL-BEING 2B WEDNESDAY JANUARY 1, 2014 CONTACT US 941-207-1102 ablackwell@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS Myths circulate in our society and often lead to misunderstanding people with hearing loss. Common myths are: Myth: No one knows I have a hearing loss False: You may be the last person to acknowledge that you have difculty hearing. People are likely to think you are aloof, snobby or rude because they perceive you to be ignoring them when in fact you cannot hear. You probably ask for repeats frequently, have the television on too loud, say the wrong thing or say something someone else has already said. You may react oddly because you did not understand what was said. You may drift off during conversations. Myth: People with hearing loss are less intelligent. False: People with hearing loss, who have not identied themselves as hard of hearing, may appear less intelligent because they do not hear the question and respond incorrectly or inappropriately. Myth: All people with hearing loss use sign language to communicate. False: American Sign Language (ASL) usually works well within the Deaf community where everyone uses ASL. However, the majority of people, who are hard of hearing, have been brought up in a speaking world, do not know ASL. Using hearing aids, cochlear implants and assistive listening devices is a more viable option than trying to learn ASL and teaching it to family, friends and work colleagues. Myth: People with hearing problems cant use the telephone. False: The frequency range of telephone transmission is challenging to people with normal hearing. It is extremely challenging, if impossible, for a person with hearing loss to hear all that is said on the telephone. Communication through Myths and misconceptions about hearing lossANNE TAYLOR HEARING | 4 Did you overindulge during the holiday season? Are you having trouble seeing past your tummy to your toes, which point to a new, larger number on your bathroom scale? Well then its time to tip-toe on over to the Venice Community Center, 326 S. Nokomis Ave. in Venice, for Beginner Boot Camp. Beginner Boot Camp starts Jan. 7 and will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The eightweek, straight-forward exercise camp offers helpful instruction in a no-pressure environment, said Dorian Mattox, VCC program coordinator. Instructor J.D. Doyle works closely with each camper and designs exercises that will help attendees lose weight and inches in just eight weeks, said Mattox. Your body will be stronger, and that person staring back at you in the full-length mirror will be smiling, Mattox said. Doyles program has worked for hundreds of men and women of every age and condition. From tness competitors to disabled senior citizens, pregnant mothers, over weight teenagers, back injury patients, diabetics and middle-aged businessmen, the results are amazing. I enjoy the challenge of helping people from all walks of life achieve their tness goals, and working with them has ultimately made me a better trainer, said Doyle. The rst class of the camp is free.

Newly opened in the Keating Theatre at Florida Studio Theatre, Thurgood is a powerful one-man show. Russell literally leaps off the stage and into the minds of those in the audience as Marshall moves from Howard Law School graduation in 1933 to become the rst African American Supreme Court Justice. In the process, Marshall also became, in the minds of many, the architect of the civil rights movement. Being turned down by his state university law school and having to settle for Howard was a mitigat ing factor in the direction his career took but then so was the distinctive name he was given and his extreme stubbornness. Sometimes I get a little weary trying to save the white mans soul, Marshall says in the play. Judging by the audience reaction throughout the play, Marshall saved many souls, white and black, as his career developed and his name became associated with various court cases. People seated near me at the Friday evening performance I attended whispered the names of critical court cases almost before the actor said the lines. We see him speaking in front of the Supreme Court where he is given one hour to plead his case yet is interrupted 43 times. We gain incite into the likes of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Chief Justice Earl Warren and President Dwight Eisenhower, among others. So driven is Marshall in the pursuit of equality for all, that he feels guilty about not spending enough time with his wife. When she dies of cancer on his 44th birthday, he is totally alone. I had never been alone, he said. I lost 30 pounds. I was rude and irritable.

EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS the telephone has greatly improved by the use of internet, videophones (VP), amplied and captioned telephones. Myth: Hearing aids restore hearing and are like wearing glasses with 20/20 vision. False: Hearing devices such as hearing aids and cochlear implants give a sense of hearing but can never restore normal hearing. However, it is important to note that hearing devices can improve your quality of life. Myth: Hearing aids can damage your hearing False: Hearing aids are designed so they cannot amplify sound levels that are dangerous to your hearing. Myth: Nerve deafness cannot be cured. True: However, nerve deafness (sensorineural hearing loss) can be treated with assistive technology, lip reading, communication strategies and peer support. Myth: All people with hearing loss are old. False: Hearing loss can happen at any age. In fact 1 in 5 teens and 1 in 4 college students today has hearing loss because of too much loud music consumption. Soldiers are coming home from the wars suffering from hearing loss. Myth: A mild hearing loss is not important. False: The impact of not hearing clearly can cause speech and language retardation, particularly in children. Not hearing can cause emotional stress and put us in harms way. For example, re alarms, door bells, telephone, trafc noise, water running, baby alarm, alarm clock. Myth: There is no need to rush to get hearing aids if ones hearing is declining. False: Untreated hearing loss can accelerate ones loss as well as increase the risk of dementia and tinnitus. Myth: People with hearing loss lead less active lives. True and false: It is true for those who dont get treatment as they hear less and become more isolated from people and activities. However, people who do get treatment socialize more, do better in their careers and are likely to be involved in community activities. Today, new loop technology makes theater, services and meetings more accessible for people with hearing loss, while new captioning systems are helping many to enjoy the movies again. Myth: People perceive folks wearing hearing aids as old or impaired. False: People are much more likely to notice someones inability to hear, understand or reaction to a conversation, rather than whether they wear hearing aids. Find out more about hearing loss and how the latest technology may help improve your hearing and your quality of life. Floridas largest Hearing Loss Expo will be held March 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., MTI Cantrell Hall, 6305 State Road 70, Bradenton. Offerings include seminars, free hearing screenings, prizes, rafes and 4050 exhibitors will be demonstrating hearing aids, cochlear implants and Assistive Listening Devices. You need not face hear ing loss alone. You can receive support, education and advocacy from the mentors and members of the local chapter of Hearing Loss Association of America by contacting info@HLAS.org or calling 941-706-4312.

Bally, Ph.D. Anne Taylor is a bilateral cochlear implant user and is a Gallaudet Certied Peer Mentor for the Hard of Hearing.HEARINGFROM PAGE 2 There are one-of-a-kind places that likely could only exist in Florida: The Shell Factory, Gatorland, Linger Lodge. Sarasota Jungle Gardens should be on that list. This is another great place to take kids while they are on winter break especially elementary school-age kids. Its interesting for little ones, said Roxanne Henkel of Venice. The Sarasota Jungle Gardens opened on New Years Eve in 1939. Initially, it was just a botanical garden, which still exists today. Some of our prized possessions include the rare Australian nut tree, a bunya bunya tree, the largest Norfolk Island pine in Florida, bulrush, strangler gs, royal palms, selloums, banana trees, Peruvian apple cactus, staghorn ferns and native red maples, oak trees and bald cypress, according to the gardens website. Take time to explore the gardens. A map will be provided upon entry. There are easy-to-navigate paths that weave around animal exhibits, playgrounds, waterfalls and other attractions. There are plenty of benches scattered around, as well, for those who want to take a break, rest their feet, or simply enjoy the view. The famous bird shows were added in the 1970s, and they remain a highlight today. Dont miss the Jungle Bird Show, which takes place at noon and 3 p.m. Show times, of course, are subject to change, so check for any updated times when you arrive. The Jungle Bird Show is the one in which you can see birds roller-skate, making you feel a little clumsy if you are unable to do so. Little kids, especially in the preschool/kindergarten ages, seemed to be mesmerized by the brightly colored macaws as they interact with the audience. There are other nonbird shows throughout the day as well. The Reptile Encounter shows take place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. (again, times are subject to change). Guests are allowed to hold reptiles at the end of the show. While I will always pass on this opportunity, it may be an exciting adventure for some, like 8-year-old Brayden Baker. Jen Baker of Byron, Ill., has been visiting Southwest Florida since she was a little kid, and now she brings her children here. She recently brought Brayden and her two other children, ages 2 and 7. Brayden, what was your favorite? Jen asked her oldest son. Holding a ball python, Brayden said. Those of us with a fear of being bitten, strangled or shocked into cardiac arrest can steer clear of the reptile house and reptile show. Theres still plenty to do at the Sarasota Jungle Gardens. The gardens also offers a Wild Life Wonder Show at 2 p.m.: Learn about red-tailed hawks, kookaburras, owls, skunks, hissing cockroaches and so many more. The dynamics of this show change frequently, and you never know which animal will make an appearance. We promise youll be thoroughly entertained by all things creeping, crawling and wiggling, the website states. For a tamer form of entertainment, be sure to spend some time with the pink amingos, located near the center of the gardens. Food can be purchased to hand-feed the funny birds. The people-friendly birds are celebrities (sort of). Theres a live amingo camera recording their movements that can be viewed online t; SarasotaJungleGardens. com. In addition to the amingos, macaws and reptiles, expect to see a crocodile, prairie dogs, lemurs, monkeys and butteries, as well as other critters. Those needing a midday snack or lunch can purchase food in the Flamingo Cafe. Before leaving, stop in the gift shop. It may be a good place to nd a last-minute Christmas present or a souvenir to remember your fun day at Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Also, there are special hours and days this month for the Holiday Lights Spectacular. The gardens are lled with lighted displays, which could make for cute family photos.

Among the most signicant events in Our Town during 2013 was the partial demolition of the 53-year-old Venice Circus Arena. The rotted roof and walls were removed down to the original steel girders and the 14-inch thick concrete oor that held an entire circus during rehearsal season for more than 30 years. An interesting result was the number of phone calls from people who wanted to know about the new building being constructed near the airport. Plein air painters, including Bill Ahrendt of Arizona, continued to paint the towns historic landmarks such as the gazebo in Centennial park, Sharkys at the Pier and the old KMI building on West Tampa Avenue. That building is known today as the Venice Center Mall. In keeping with the John Nolen Plan for Venice, locally organized home tours honored area architecture. Last July, the Sarasota Alliance of Historic Preservation brought fans of the Sarasota School-style homes to Venice to see a mid-1950s home designed by the late Paul Rudolph, one of the most important architects of the group of designers collectively known as the Sarasota School of Architecture. Earlier in the year, members of the AAUW and members of the Venice Area Garden Club sponsored other home tours featuring historic and recent construction. A foundation offering worldwide support for families affected by the Phelan-McDermid Syndrome is headquartered in Venice. Its existence was thrust into the limelight when the foundation topped the list of 287 local nonprots in this years 36-hour Sarasota County area Giving Challenge, racking up $90,102 in gifts from 678 donors. Those numbers earned bonuses that brought the foundations total receipts to about $145,000 for the 36-hour event. Roughly $2.78 million was raised for the 285 participating organizations in the Giving Challenge held in March. Throughout the year, veterans were celebrated by ags at cemeteries for Memorial Day as well as special events conducted in conjunction with the Patterson Foundations Legacy of Valor campaign. As part of that initiative, Habitat for Humanity partnered with local organizations to repair homes of veterans in need. Venice Concert Band and Exultate! honored veterans in special performances and Wreaths Across America placed wreaths on every grave at Sarasota National Cemetery where a remembrance ceremony was held on Dec. 14. Our goal through the Legacy of Valor campaign is to encourage our community to use Patriot Plaza following its dedication to continue to honor veterans for generations to come, Patterson Foundation President Debra M. Jacobs said. For additional information, visit: PatriotPlaza. ThePattersonFoundation. org. Always in the limelight for all they do in this community are such groups as the Salvation Army of Venice, Loveland Center for the developmentally handicapped, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Beacon House, Habitat For Humanity, the Lions Club, the Senior Friendship Center and Venice Theatre among so many groups. The most unusual celebration this year may have been the combined Hanukkah/Thanksgiving event celebrated by the Venice Interfaith Association as well as many residents.

AROUND TOWN 8B WEDNESDAY JANUARY 1, 2014 CONTACT US FRAN VALENCIC SOCIAL COLUMNIST franvalencic@comcast.net SUN NEWSPAPERSIn Venice, New Years Day means get ready, get set, go. My inbox is lled with press releases announcing upcoming events. The calendar blocks show several events a day on many days. Needless to say, fashion shows dominate the scene. Venice MainStreet wants you to Think Pink with fashions from various stores in town. Their event is on Feb. 5 at the Plantation Golf & Country Club. The $35 ticket is available at The Sun Bug on the corner of West Venice Avenue and Nokomis Avenue. Nancy Gorski and the crew from Our Lady of Lourdes do their fashion show every year. They are experts. The event is so popular that people ask for tickets for next year as they leave this year. The show features fashions from Patchingtons and is scheduled for Feb. 26 at Jacaranda West Country Club. Tickets are $35. Call Carol for tickets and information at 941497-5170. This group usually has enough prizes for everyone to leave with at least one.Take a ClassThis Saturday, Deborahs Quilt Shop on West Venice Avenue offers a teachers showcase from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can sign up for classes, meet with teachers and see samples of their offerings. Refreshments will be served. Remember, gurus tell us to learn something new each day.One of our bestThe special person of this week is Mike Pachota. This nice man owns several restaurants in Venice. Mike and his businesses generously contribute and participate in almost every community event in town. You see Sharkys in parades, in the bed races and at food tastings, and the name appears in most programs. The restaurants contribute their facilities to fashion shows. When the Christmas in July trolley driver made his stop at Sharkys, he received a nice boxed lunch. Sharkys fabulous sh tacos are a featured item at Sun Fiesta. Senior citizens from various assisted-living facilities enjoyed a lovely Christmas Eve dinner thanks to Sharkys. The grand opening of Fins was a fundraiser for the Loveland Center. Most of all, Mike loves being a grandfather. He spends Sunday afternoons with the grandkids when and he and his elementary-school-age grandson always enjoy a round of golf. Mike is a wonderful friend and has a great sense of humor. He his lled with a tremendous, generous spirit. Mike Pachota is one of the men who make Venice a great place to live. Fran Valencic is the Venice Gondolier Suns social columnist and welcomes your ideas and tips.

Donna and Mike Pachota (left) are the new owners. Jon Thaxton joins well-wishers at the grand opening celebration that included barbecue prepared by Mayor John Holic and the ever-popular banjo band. Sponsored by Venice MainStreet, Christmas in July brings thousands to downtown Venice for some midsummer fun. Sherry Hilton was the ocial greeter at Venice Stationers.PHOTOS BY FRAN VALENCICThe annual Venice Relay for Life was again one of the top fundraising events in the state. The second-grade students of Island Montessori School traditionally kick o the event. Fans gathered at Centennial Park in downtown Venice to cele brate the Venice High School Indians baseball team, who are state champions two years in a row. Members of the Womens Sertoma Club of Venice highlighted the beginning of The Season in Venice with their three-day event of the year, Sun Fiesta, bringing more than 10,000 people to the area for food, fun, a parade, bed races and the Miss Sun Fiesta and Miss Sun Fiesta Idol scholarship events. Valerie Button organized a spectacular party at the Venice Yacht Club to celebrate the birth of Prince George of Cambridge. Showing o the cake commissioned for the future King of England are Valerie and Roger Button along with their grandsons, Christopher and William Nightengale, who live in London. Sen. Nancy Detert led the Sun Fiesta parade as grand marshal, along with her grandsons Eric (left) and Ryan, a member of the Venice Middle School ROTC. Nancy celebrated nally getting her no-textingwhile-driving bill passed in the Florida Legislature. Good witch Brenda Carlesimo greeted adults and children at the annual Venice MainStreet Halloween Trick or Treat event. Like other MainStreet reps, Brenda enjoyed meeting and greeting all the happy costumed characters. Dick Hyman (right) was honored by Venice Heritage at its annual fashion show and luncheon, for his generous contribu tions to various organizations in Venice. Dick regularly performs benet concerts to raise funds for the community. Clark Pressley, who presented Dick with a plaque, is president of the Venice Historical Society. Rich and Nancy Carroll contribute their time unselshly to enrich the lives of children in Venice. Rich initiated Challenger Baseball and the annual bike giveaway at Christmas. He was recently recognized as a Pillar of the Community by Mayor John Holic. Rich credits his wife and silent partner, Nancy, with all his success. The Arboretum at Blalock Park was recently named for Monty Andrews, who originated the idea and organizes maintenance of the Arboretum. Monty loves what he does and never takes himself too seriously, as evidenced by the dancing hat he wore to the celebration. Before a City Council meeting, Mayor John Holic proclaimed a Venice Elementary School Day. Student Council members at the school organized their annual food drive for the mayors Feed the Hungry Campaign and surpassed their goal, collecting almost 800 cans of soup.

January 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 Remember when I said help me, help you in my introduction column? Well, I need your help. A new year means a new start and a chance for improvement and that is exactly what I want for your Lets Go! section. But I need your help. I want to know what the readers want to read about. Do you want more on local restaurants? Do you want more on area plays or more on local bands? Do you read Lets Go! for the events we feature or do you pick it up to see if a friend, family member, or co-worker was featured in the Around Town section? Let me know. I want to interact with our readers more. I want to know if theyre enjoying our product. If youre not, tell me whats missing. I really enjoy putting this section together for you. Week after week, I want to continue to make Lets Go! a fun product that you enjoy reading and that you look forward to each Wednesday. If you have any ideas on new things we can include in the section, send me an email or give me a phone call. At the end of the week I will be meeting with Lets Go! writers and photographers as well as with former editor Casey Ortlieb and Lets Go! Publisher Carol Moore to brainstorm on ways to make the section flourish in 2014. If you have any suggestions, my email is gramirez@sun-herald.com, or letsgo@sun-herald. com. You can also call me at 941-681-3006. I want to thank all the readers who have submitted information to me about their events or business for Lets Go! Youre all awesome! Til next week, and Happy New Year! G ABRIELA R AMIREZ Lets Go! Editor Today is a day of reection for many. As I look back on the past year, I remember happy days at the Walt Disney World Resort, a wonderful cruise with my daughter from England to Ireland, Norway and Belgium, the holiday lights at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville with my friend Laurel, Sunday breakfasts out with close friends and plays lots of them. Among the theatrical highlights were Venice Theatres summer stock production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat; Manatee Players incredible production of Les Miserables; Rendell DeBose as the donkey in Shrek the Musical at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers; Kate Alexanders direction of The Columnist and South Beach Babylon at Florida Studio Theatre; Mary Testa in My Brilliant Divorce at the Asolo; Kim Kollar as Dolly Levi in Venice Theatres production of Hello Dolly; the Lemon Bay Playhouse production of Dont Cry For Me Margaret Mitchell; Crazy For You at The Players in Sarasota and two standup-and-cheer shows presented by the Asolo Rep Noah Raceys Pulse and this seasons opener, Showboat which was choreographed by Racey. There were so many more ne shows. These were simply the standouts, in my opinion (for what it might be worth) here in the heart of the Cultural Coast. Throw in trips to the Ringling for visits to the memory of John and Mable Ringling at Ca dZan, special shows in the art museum plus revisits to Howard Tibbals wonderful miniature Howard Bros. Circus; special events at Venice Art Center, the Loveland Follies at Venice Theatre, and a few rides on Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. It is simply not easy to nd time to count any of the sand at the Venice beach, given all there is to do in this glorious area. For help in learning most of what is available in the coming weeks and months, read Lets Go! weekly and also visit the website for the Arts & Culture Alliance of Sarasota County, www.SarasotaArts.org.

4 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 1 7, 2014 DINING OUT A simple sign at the entrance to the Towers Plaza on Indiana Avenue (also SR 776) in Englewood advertizes "Pizza." What a surprise to discover that Armadillo's is much, much more than a pizza place. When Rick Bizzaro decided to name his business "Armadillo's" his wife, Katie, and his friends supported the idea. "The unusual name caught on quickly. Customers and family began bringing us hand-carved, metal, and all sorts of armadillo gurines as gifts," said Katie, "and the trend continues." Armadillo's is huge. Most of the space is devoted to about a dozen ornate pool tables, bistro sets with high stools, and side seating arranged along walls. Lighting is dim throughout, but pool tables are brilliantly lit to enable players to concentrate on their games. At the entrance, a quarter of the space is devoted to a well-stocked bar where customers may order drinks, piz za, sandwiches or Italian specialties to go. Many choose, however, to linger over meals in Armadillo's comfortable, family-friendly, indoor or outside dining areas. "We never intended to become a restaurant," explained Rick, a former pool table manufacturer. "My company was based in Tampa where we sold hundreds of tables a year. During the recession, however, business ground to a halt, and we were forced to decide what to do with our inventory." Storage was an issue, so Rick searched for a large building where he could start a Billiard & Brew busi ness. He already knew about the pizza business as his family had owned pizza places in NYC for years, so it seemed natural for Rick to oer pizza and beverages to pool players in his new Towers location. Bob, a regular customer who loves eating lunch at Armadillo's, describes Katie and Rick Bizzaro as honest and hard-working. "They serve great pizza the best around," he said. Over the past two years the Bizzaros, encouraged by their customers' responses, have expanded their food menu to include sub sandwiches, Calzones, Stromboli, chicken wings, shrimp baskets, fench fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, fried mushrooms, and clam strips. For $7.99 customers may order a half sub sandwich and a cup of New England clam chowder. Turkey club, Reuben, and BLT sandwiches are popular as well, and moderately priced entrees include ziti with meatballs or sausage and cheese ravioli. All may be served with a side salad, bread and a beverage for an additional $1.99. Customers whose food bill totals $9 are treated to an hour of free pool as an incentive. The Englewood Independent Pool League, The American Players Association, and The Venice Independent League meet regularly at Armadillo's, and the walls are adorned with plaques honoring winning teams. "We host bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and holiday parties," said Rick. "Customers may reserve an entire section or just a few tables by giving us a call." Armadillo's is located at 622 N. Indiana Ave., Englewood. For pick-up or delivery, call 941-474-2356.By CHRIS KOURAPISSUN CORRESPONDENT Pool players Justin DiLorenzo and John Adamson enjoy spending afternoons at Armadillos where young people feel welcomed.

American HustleBy TOM LOVASKOSUN CORRESPONDENTI have been waiting for American Hustle since rst viewing its fall trailers, when the s rock soundtrack, sexy women and witty dialogue grabbed my attention. I wasnt disappointed put it high on the list for movie of the year. American Hustle is ction al but partially and loosely based on Abscam, a 1978 FBI sting op to nail corrupt politicians. Its all about cons and scams, greed and double-crossing; basically nothing is as it appears. Superbly directed by David O. Russell, the lm is a winning combination of ensemble cast and stylish, true-to-life 1970s ambiance. Expect big hair, polyester suits, disco dancing and even the introduction of the microwave oven. Christian Bale is Irving Rosenfeld, a brilliant con man with a pot belly and an unbelievable comb over. He partners with the seductive Sydney Prosser, played by Amy Adams. Their chemistry and schemes mesh and then Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) comes along. Hes an intense FBI agent with his own personal gains agenda (his serious boss is played by comedian Louis C.K.). As the scams unfold, we meet passionate Jersey politician Carmine (Jeremy Renner), an Arab sheik and mobsters led (in a brief scene) by the inimitable Robert De Niro. As if all of these compelling characters by great actors werent enough, along comes Jennifer Lawrence, playing Irvings wife Rosalyn. Incidentally, she was Bradley Coopers girl in Silver Lining Playbook and is also the Hunger Games star. In American Hustle, Amy Adams is clearly and deservedly the female lead. But then Lawrence comes along and trumps her with a character that denes amboyant, sassy and oh-sohot. Ive already awarded her the Oscar for Best Achievement by a Supporting Actress. The script is smart, edgy and funny as youre taken in by all of these awed humans. And the soundtrack really rocks appropriately through the lm with s material like Steely Dan, Elton John, Chicago, Paul McCartney and even the jazz of Duke Ellington. In a lm that starts out a bit slowly, it builds so much steam and interest that I didnt want it to end. It ts a lot of genres, but I cant recall any con-artist ick as well done as American Hustle. says Go! rfntb b rfbntb rf n ntbt b bf rfbntb tn ft nrtr b r r FEEL ART CREATE ART 481302 www.leverockspalmisland.com 372204 7092 Placida Rd.

8 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 1 7, 2014 EVENTS THIS WEEK One of the most stunning voices in country music will be performing live in Charlotte County this weekend. JG Big Star Productions proudly presents country music legend, Gene Watson and The Farewell Party Band in concert Friday, Jan. 3, at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, 2280 Aaron Street, Port Charlotte. The native Texan has six No. 1 country hits, 23 top tens and over 75 charted songs. In August, Watson was inducted into the inaugural class for the Houston Music Hall of Fame which adds to his membership in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. Watson continues to record new albums and in recent years received accolades including many year-end Album of the Year picks and one Album of the Decade from an enthusiastic music critic. USA Today says, Gene Watson is one of countrys nest singers, while The Associated Press states, Hes never sounded better, which is saying something. Watsons most current release is his 25 Greatest Hits which he faithfully re-recorded in the same keys as the originals. Asked how he keeps his show exciting after all these years, Watson has stated, Every time I step out on that stage and see that audience, its a new beginning. Even though Ive sung these songs millions of times, I look at each one like its brand new to me. Every night, I try to deliver that song. Watsons country classics include Love In The Hot Afternoon, Paper Rosie, Farewell Party, Should I Come Home (Or Should I Go Crazy), When We Were Down To Nothing (Nothing Sure Looked Good On You.) Any Which Way You Can, Fourteen Carat Mind, Speak Softly (Youre Talking To My Heart), Youre Out Doing What Im Here Doing Without, Sometimes I Get Lucky, and Drinkin My Way Back Home, just to name a few. Watson is one of the rare singers who still sings in the same key as he did 30 years ago and his audiences respond with standing ovations night after night when he nails the octave-jumping last note on his most requested song, the now country classic Farewell Party. Fridays concert will feature Carl E. Sharp, Floridas ocial Cowboy Poet Laureate, as the opening act. Sharp goes on state at 6 p.m. He embodies the true symbolism of the American Cowboy, and at the age of 99 has over 100 hour of poetic verse committed to memory. Country legend Gene Watson and his Farewell Party Band take the stage at 6:30 p.m. Tickets range from $35 to $50.

January 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 9 DINING OUT Live with love, walk with peace, eat with passion. That's the motto of new Wave Grill chef Joel Sardinhah, who is rapidly making an impact at the Venice restaurant. Situated inside the newly renovated Ramada Venice Resort, the Wave Grill is positioning itself as the go-to dining spot in a town full of excellent dining options. In order to jump start that process, they have hired Chef Sardinhah and are preparing to unveil a completely new menu. "We are a full service restaurant serving American Continental cuisine," said Jeannie Gomes, director of sales and marketing. "Right now, we just want our local folks to come in and give us a try." The new restaurant is light and bright, with washed wood oors and plenty of windows to let in the sunshine, giving it a casually elegant, beachy feel. Chef Sardinhah's menu is full of freshly made salads, grilled atbreads, a variety of sandwiches and tasty "chef's selections" like Blackened Grouper and Shrimp, Tropical BBQ Beef Short Ribs and Chicken Alfredo de Rosa. Most recently, Chef Sardinhah was the executive chef of the Good Winds Seafood and Wine Bar in Hatteras Island, on North Carolina's Outer Banks. While there, he partnered with local licensed shermen to provide fresh sh and shellsh daily to the restaurant, a practice which was at least partially responsible for the Urbanspoon and TripAdvisor awards he won while he was there. At the Wave Grill, the chef will be showcasing some of his favorite creations with Nightly Features as follows: Monday: Fried Chicken, Mashed Potato n Gravy, Vegetable, Salad or Soup for $12.95 Tuesday: 1 Dozen Fried Shrimp, French Fries, Coleslaw, Salad or Soup for $16.95 Wednesday: 1 Pound Snow Crab, Steamed Red Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Salad or Soup for $17.95 Thursday: Prime Rib, Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli, Salad or Soup for $18.95 Friday: Fish Fry, French Fries, Coleslaw, Salad or Soup for $12.95 Saturday: Maine Lobster, Steamed Red Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Salad or Soup for $18.95 Sunday Funday: 1 Dozen Chicken Wings for $8.95 or Peel n Eat Shrimp for $8.95 / $17.95 "We will also be having early bird specials from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day," Gomes said. "That will be 20 percent o everything on the menu." She said that the restaurant is an excellent place to go for local entertainment, too. "We've had some great success with Jazz Night on Tuesdays, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.," she said. "It's music to accompany your dining experience, and reservations are encouraged." Wednesday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wave Grill are reserved for Country Night, and they even clear the stage out of the dining room to accommodate line dancing. As if the brand new chef with a new menu, plenty of inside seating and outside tables and live music nights weren't enough, Gomes said there's one more piece of the puzzle yet to be added that will bring it all together. "We're going to be doing a new dinner the atre," she said. "It will be like dining in a cabaret, and the new series of shows will be nalizing in February." The Wave Grill is located inside the Ramada Resort Venice at 425 U.S. 41 Bypass North, in Venice, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

E/N/C/V January 1 7, 2014 AT THE THEATER"The Sleeping Beauty," one of the grandest and most-treasured story ballets in history, is considered to be one of choreographer Marius Petipa's greatest works. Presented by the Rudolf Nureyev State Ballet Theatre Wedneday, Jan. 8, at the Charlotte Harbor Event Center, the ballet was inspired by French author Charles Perrault's story "La Belle au bois dormant," or "The Beauty sleeping in the wood." More than just a children's fairy tale, the story includes messages about inner beauty and the powers of love and evil. This collaboration of Petipa and Pyotr Tchaikovsky, who composed the score, rst premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1890, and was said to have presented the Russian school of ballet at its very best.

With their 60 distinguished dancers, the company has showcased the unparalleled art of Russian ballet to countries throughout the world. Their production of "The Sleeping Beauty" is a ballet in three acts in the rst act, the princess is born and by the end of the act, is 16 years old and has pricked her nger on the spindle. In the second act, time skips forward 100 years and the prince nds the princess and wakes her up with a kiss. By the end of the third act, every one, except Carrabosse, nds their happily ever after. The Rudolf Nureyev State Ballet Theatre has been touring for years with productions of traditional Russian Classics.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 1 7, 2014 UPCOMING EVENTSStep back in time to the Victorian era with a fashion show that will feature a collection of exclusive vintage clothing, and more. At 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14, Beyond Ourselves, the community service club of the Punta Gorda Civic Association and fashion historian Charlotte Todd will present a Historic Fashion Show at the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, 2001 Shreve St., Punta Gorda. Vintage fashions from the 1880s to the early 1900s including the apper era will be featured on the runway along with Victorian era garments, when Great Britains powerful Queen Victoria ruled and held great power throughout Europe. Guests will meet the monarch herself and her son and other family members. Charlotte Todd brings not only her collection of vintage clothing to life, but also introduces the royalty and events that inuenced the aristocratic Crawley family of the popular PBS series, Downton Abbey. By attending the show, you are invited to be a guest at Lady Mary Crawleys marriage and to be scrutinized by Dowager Countess Violet. You will be privy to the downstairs conversations of Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes, as they ensure the smooth functioning of Crawleys sta of servants in this post-Edwardian era. Billed as a vintage-style show, be prepared for a historical pageant of costumes and characters, as the world enters the tragic Great War (WWI). Male and female guests are invited to attend dressed in fashions of the 1880s through 1930s. This historical fashion show, however, is more than just about vintage fashions. Beyond Ourselves members have been raising money for Peace River Wildlife Center for two years and were encou raged to increase their eorts by the plight of Phoenix, a young eagle that was badly burned by electrical wires less than a year ago. Fortunately, Phoenix made an earlier than expected recovery and was released Aug. 21. He was sighted on Nov. 2 about ten miles from his release site. The idea to have a vintage fashion show as a fundraiser for Peace River Wildlife Center was brought on by the portion of the time covered in the fashion show, when birds such as snowy egrets and great white herons were hunted nearly to extinction so that their plumage could be used to decorate hats for the fashionable. Therefore, it seemed like an appropriate fundraiser for an organization that heals and cares for so many injured birds. Todd, who splits her time between Punta Gorda and Cape May, New Jersey, loved the idea of sharing her enthusiasm for period fashions and is generously donating her services and extensive clothing collection. Browse among the basket raes and in the vintage gift shoppe and enjoy petite treats and punch, which will be served at 2 p.m. followed by Todds narrated fashion show. A limited number of tickets are $20 in advance and can be purchased at the Gifted Gator, the PGICA Gift Shop or from Beyond Ourselves members. If available, tickets will be $25 at the door, however, anyone who has not yet purchased a ticket should call to check on availability. In addition, $10 rae tickets will be sold for a special treat an elegant catered picnic along the banks of the Peace River. The gourmet meal will be provided by Trabue Restaurant in Punta Gorda. Transportation for the winner and up to three guests will be in a 1912 Buick Touring Car owned by Randy and Marge Hall. Tickets for this rae are also available in advance at the Gifted Gator.

Venice Theatres rst production of 2014 is Tracy Letts Chicago-based comedy Superior Donuts. The play will open Thursday, Jan. 9, in the Pinkerton Theatre and run through Sunday, Jan. 26. Performances are at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets range from $25 to $28 for adults, and $10 to $15 for students, Tickets now on sale at the theatres box oce, online at www.venicestage.com, or by phone at 941-488-1115. Superior Donuts introduces audiences to a cast of neighborhood characters headed up by Arthur Przybyszewski. Arthur is the proprietor of Superior Donuts, a decrepit shop located in the heart of Chicagos equally decrepit Uptown neighborhood. His new employee, Franco Wicks, is an idealistic self-starter who wants to shake things up a bit with healthier menu items and poetry nights. Francos youthful exuberance reects the neighborhood itself which is experiencing a slow but sure gentrication. Arthur is taken aback by his new hires enthusiasm. His own energy is long gone, left in the s where he was dodging the draft, getting arrested at the Chicago riots, and collecting the concert T-shirts he wears to this day. Throughout this character-driven piece Arthur and Franco learn from each other, deal with some dicult life situations and experience the redemptive power of friendship. Anyone should be able to appreciate the play Charles Isherwood of The New York Times compared to Norman Lears groundbreaking shows of the 1970s, which mixed smart jokes and social commen tary in satisfying proportions, but Chicagoans will nd specic treasures. Theyll enjoy an authentic depiction of their city with references to Bridgeport, Riverview, Jeerson Park, as well as a realistic portrait of the diverse Uptown neighborhood which becomes a character in itself. As a resident member of Chicagos acclaimed Steppenwolf Theatre (where Donuts debuted before moving to Broadway) Tracy Letts is well-equipped to write about the Second City. He is best-known for his Pulitzer winning play, August: Osage County, its lm adaptation currently showing at multiplexes around the country. In Isherwoods review of the 2009 Broadway production of Superior Donuts, he pointed out the stark dierences between the caustic August: Osage County and Superior Donuts remarking, Mr. Letts has mothballed his angst and tossed the deadly weapons in the back drawer. Superior Donuts is a warm bath of a play that will leave audiences with satised smiles rather than rattled nerves. Director Kelly Wynn Woodland brings the intimate cast of eight characters to life. Her recent direction of A Behanding in Spokane in Venice Theatres Stage II earned the show a 2013 Handy Award for best community theater play. The Venice Theatre is located at 140 W. Tampa Ave., Venice. Box oce hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour before all performances.PROVIDED BY VENICE THEATRE PHOTO PROVIDED BY RENEE MCVETYLeft to right: Lynne Buhle plays Lady, a regular customer at Superior Donuts.

PHOTO PROVIDEDDebbie Jamieson and Michael Roberts have been a duo, on and o-stage, for over a year.Debbie Jamieson and Michael Roberts have been a duo, on and o-stage, for over a year. Both strong individual musicians, they blend vocals and create lush guitar as a backdrop to their folk/American foundation. They throw in a smattering of country, swing, rock n roll, and some originals. Their obvious enjoyment of music and each other creates an atmosphere that one emcee has claimed suspended the audience momentarily to another dimension. Another venue manager has dubbed them couples therapy. Jamieson and Roberts met at the Will McLean Folk Festival near Brooksville, Fla., and have played the Florida folk festival circuit including spring and fall festivals in Barberville, Fla. Local venues include the Hibiscus Festival and City Market in Punta Gorda, and numerous open mics, including Lakeview Restaurant in Englewood on Tuesday nights. They also enjoy their gig on Saturdays at Mercers Fresh Roasted Coees in Charlotte Harbor. They frequently participate at the Punta Gorda Guitar Army on Thursday evenings in Gilchrist Park. Originally from Kentucky, Roberts st arted playing music in high school with a band that was inuenced by British rock. From there, he moved to back porch pickin and honed a repertoire of songs by John Prine, Marshall Tucker Band, and the Eagles. You cant get out of my part of Kentucky without some coal minin and labor songs, Roberts said. Roberts has lived in Florida for 15 years. Before he and Jamieson formed their duo, he was a solo performer in various venues around Citrus County, Fla. Including the Woodview Coee House and Studio Arts Center.

January 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 19 AT THE THEATERJamieson was born in Miami, Fla. Her earliest memories include harmo nizing with her father and brother, and singing solo for her kindergarten graduation. As a teenager, she moved to Homer, Alaska, where she received her first guitar. I would sing and play basically anywhere they would let me. Jamieson returned to Florida in 2001. In 2007 she became a founding member of a group called Mood Swing that performed at the Captains Table in Fishermens Village in Punta Gorda, and other local venues. She has also performed solo or in combination with various local musicians at benefits and private parties. Roberts and Jamieson have spent their first year together developing a broad repertoire that features songs of love and peace. They are currently in a phase of songwriting, and due to popular demand, plan to produce their first commercial CD sometime in 2014. They claim that they are a conge nial fit for atmospheres more inclined to listening and less inclined toward venues with heavy drinking. Contact the duo through YouTube, or call 941-204-9707.DUOFROM PAGE 18 South Pacific, by Rodgers and Hammerstein, is one of Broadways most enduring and classic musicals. Newly opened at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, this Broadway hit will play through Feb. 15 in Fort Myers. In addition to being nominated for 10 Tony Awards, South Pacific won all 10 categories in which it was nomi nated, from Best Score to Best Musical. One of the most memorable songs was Some Enchanted Evening which was sung by Ezio Pinza as expatriate Emile DeBeque to Mary Martin as U.S. Navy nurse Nellie Forbush in the original Broadway production. Other hit songs include Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair, There is Nothing Like a Dame and Younger Than Springtime. The story line, based on James Micheners Tales of the South Pacific, includes two love stories: the young naive nurse being wooed by the older expatriate and, for the period, the somewhat scandalous, interracial love of a young naval lieutenant for a young island girl. The song, Youve Got to be Carefully Taught was deemed controversial at the time the show debuted on Broadway in 1949. Happy Talk is one of the shows most charming musical numbers. It is sung by Bloody Mary, the mother of Liat, the island girl, to Liat and lieutenant Joe Cable. Longtime Broadway Palm director and Prather Entertainment casting director and artistic producer Brian Enzman is the shows director. Performances are in the evenings, Tuesday through Sunday, plus selected matinees, now through Feb. 15. Tickets range from $35 to $58 per person. The Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre is at 1380 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers. For tickets, call the box office at 239-278-4422 or visit www.

This stately course opening originally in 1966 offers recently renovated greens and amenities set amongst the statuesque mature oak, cypress, and palm trees. Home to an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, the courseboasts lush surroundings and elegant homes of the gated community set a comfortable distance from the greens. Golfers enjoy the natural backdrop of the preserves while seeing otters, eagles, and S andhill C ranes in their environment. The semi-private Boca Royale Golf & Country Club is opento the public and offers newly renovated practice facilities with putting green, sand bunker, and a pitching and chipping area. U.S.G.A. golf professional Adrian Matern and assistant professional Scott Holcomb offer lessons to both members and the golfing public. Holcomb, who has been with Boca Royale since 2009, said the whole experience begins when golfers are welcomed in the parking lot by courteous staff and proceed to the pro shop and out to thebeautiful grounds. After enjoying the outdoors, golfers are invited i nside tothe Georgian style clubhouse for exceptional dining and picturesque views. Its not about hitting the drivers and its not about making par, said Holcomb. Its about enj oying all the other things along the way. Golfers have a choice of five tees ranging from the Diamond Tees, measuring 6,357 yards, to the Bronze Tees, measuring 4,891 yards. Matern, who qualified for the PGA in South Africa, says that although it is considered a short course, it has earned its reputation as a true local challenge. I t is truly a shot-makers layout, Matern said. With towering oaks hugging narrow fairways, our sharp doglegs and false carries demand the full attention of even the most skilled golfers. Memberships are available to non-residents of the Boca Royale community andcan be purchased for single, family, and seasonal terms.A variety of plans offer benefits including member-only golf tournaments, driving range rights, Bocce, clay tennis courts, and a private fitness center. Boca Royales clubhouse offers fine dining at the Fairway Dining Room and a casual dining experience at the 19 th Hole. Boca Royale Golf & Country Club is located at 1601 Englewood Road in Englewood.

The Sun Classified Page 12E/N/C/Vads.yoursun.netW ednesday, January 1, 2014 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonand G rahamNolan MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I am taking an angiotensin r eceptor blocker and a calcium channel blocker for my blood pressure, w hich work very well to control my hypertension. How ever, I have a history of breast cancer, and I have heard that calcium channel blockers are associated with new cases of breast cancer. My daughter also takes a CC B, and my question is w hether either or both of us should ask our physicians to nd another class of drug because of my history. H.S. ANSWER: An article w as published looking at the risk for breast cancer in long-term (10 or more y ears) users of calcium channel blockers, and found a two-fold increase in risk. Previous studies did not show an increase in risk, but these did not include people who had taken calcium channel blockers for so long. If conrmed, that would make calcium channel blockers one of the most powerful risk factors for breast cancer. An accompanying editorial recommended against changing from a calcium channel blocker, since this data is too preliminary, and recommended waiting for further studies. I agree. How ever, because there is a possible risk, in people w ith an increased risk of breast cancer such as a personal history or strong family history it has been my experience that both patient and physician may feel a little less anxious if a replacement can be found that controls the blood pressure as well. DEAR DR. ROACH: Im a 64-year-old male, and Ive never had a colonoscopy, the main r eason being that all the clinics in my area require the patient to come to the appointment with a driver or escort. I live in a somewhat rural area, and volunteers are hard to come by. I cant afford to pay someone to take off a day from work. Ive attempted to see if the clinics and myself could reach some sort of compromise, and they w ont even talk to me about it. It seems to me that in the interest of saving lives something could be worked out. Ive w r itten the local papers, emailed and called the clinics, and even contacted a local TV station, and absolutely no one will address this. J.S. ANSWER: Ill bet a compromise can be worked out. I have seen several ways. One is to have the colonoscopy very early in the morning and stay in the ofce until the end of the day. This can work, particularly if the doctor uses a short-acting sedative. Another is to have a friend or taxi come pick you up at the end of the day, so they dont have to lose a day of work waiting for you. The last is to have the colonoscopy without sedation, which I have occasionally had a patient do, but both you and the gastroenterologist would need to be willing to do this. I completely agree that the test can be lifesaving, so working out a compromise is best. A visit to the physician wholl be performing the procedure, rather than speaking to his or her ofce staff, might enable you to work it out.

They are low-calorie, fat-free, cholesterol-free and a good source of ber. However, some people are a little intimidated about how to buy, cook and eat one. Pick them up and choose the heaviest ones. Look for a nice, green, healthy color, with compact leaves. Y ou can boil, steam, bake or grill artichokes and serve them with your favorite dipping sauce or, of course, in melted butter or mayonnaise, both of which are tasty but do add some fat and calories. I like to use fat-free ranch or blue-cheese salad dressing. To eat the cooked artichoke, start by pulling off the outermost leaves, and dip the base (the fat part at the end) into dipping sauce. Now the fun part: P ull the petal through your teeth, getting the tasty part off. When you have pulled all the petals off, you are to the prize the heart. R emove the fuzzy choke from around the heart by scooping it with a spoon, then cut up the heart and enjoy the reward of your hard work! HeloiseRegarding riceDear Heloise: How do you store rice, and for how long? J.P. in California W ell, youve probably heard somewhere that white rice is one of those foods that can be kept forever, but that is not re ally true. Because of the lack of moisture in white rice, it can last a long time. If stored in a sealed container and kept in a dark, dry, cool place, white rice can last for three years or more. However, brown ri ce is different, and will not last nearly as long as white rice. T ypically, brown ri ce is good for about six months or so. You can store it in the refrigerator, though, and it will last longer. HeloiseRoasting chickenDear Heloise: In stead of buying a special roa sting vertical pan for whole chickens, I simply use my uted cake pan. I spray the pan with cooking oil, then sit the chicken upright in the pan, with the centerpiece of the pan resting inside the chicken and holding it. The juices collect in the ring of the pan, and the chicken roasts beautifully.

HOROSCOPE DEAR READERS: W elcome to 2014! It seems like the world spins faster every year. With each new y ear comes our chance for a new beginning. Its an opportunity to discard destructive old habits and create healthy new ones. W ith that in mind, I will share my often-requested list of New Years resolutions that were adapted by my mother, Pauline Phillips, from the original credo of Al-Anon: JUST FOR TODAY: I will live through this day only. I will not brood about y esterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to ov ercome all of my problems at once. I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime. JUST FOR TODAY: I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind lls with clouds, I will chase them away and ll it with sunshine. JUST FOR TODAY: I will accept what is. I will face r eality. I will correct those things that I can correct and accept those I cannot. JUST FOR TODAY: I will improve my mind. I will read something that r equires effort, thought and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer. JUST FOR TODAY: I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and Ill not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking. JUST FOR TODAY: I will r efrain from improving anybody but myself. JUST FOR TODAY: I will do something positive to improve my health. If Im a smoker, Ill quit. If I am ov erweight, I will eat healthfully if only for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if its only around the block. JUST FOR TODAY: I will gather the courage to do what is right and take the r esponsibility for my own actions. And now, Dear Readers, I would like to share an item that was sent to me by I.J. Bhatia a reader from New Delh i, India: DEAR ABBY: This year, no resolutions, only some guidelines. The Holy Vedas say: Man has subjected himself to thousands of self-inicted bondages. Wi sdom comes to a man who lives according to the true eternal laws of nature. The prayer of St. Francis (of which there are several versions) contains a powerful message: Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; Where th ere is hatred, let me sow love; Where th ere is injury, pardon; W here there is doubt, faith; W here there is despair, hope; Where th ere is darkness, light; And wh ere there is sadness, joy. Grant th at I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved, as to love; For it is in giving that we r eceive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. And so, Dear Readers, may this new year bring with it good health, peace and joy to all of you. LOVE, ABBY After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13. Dont try to analyze or sermonize on this prayer just gather up all your problems and simply slowly and re verently repeat it. Let it be a daily part of you. In it y ou are going to God in the words and in the name of H is Son. You are bound to get results. BIBLET oday is our opportunity to make a fresh startV enice Gondolier re aders: Look for the puzzle solution in the Our Town section Dear Abby wuaf& ;0114 AE vas rawM ?A VA f z Aof; 111C -wig-f3Vila f3e-=I G
