Grinches who stole Christmas are arrested


By GREG GILES
STAFF REPORT

Three SouthVenice residents
have been arrested and nearly a
dozen more are being investigated
in connection with six residential
burglaries in which tens of thou-
sands of dollars worth of property
- including Christmas presents
-was stolen, announced the
Sarasota County Sheriffs Office.
One victim, Debbie Maddox,
had just finished up her Christmas
shopping and went to Texas prior
to the holiday. When she returned
home, she found her home was
ransacked and all the presents


were
missing. It
turns out
her house
was cased.
She re-
membered
the young
neighbor MOORE JOH
she caught
looking into her window before
she left town.
"I came out and asked her
what she was doing? She said she
was my neighbor and wanted to
borrow some butter. I let the Big
BadWolf in," Maddox said. "That
big smile and spider tattoo haunts


N


s me every
night."
Later,
Maddox

P, woman,
who has not

same ruse on other neighbors, but
they refused entry.
Some folks would have
crumbled under despair. Not the
Maddox's. She and her husband
Kevin shifted into high gear and
started visiting all the pawn shops
in the area. After all, she witnessed


the thieves placing
her belongings into
their vehicles to
make a getaway.
In the end, she

Food brought to areas

where need exists


By SUSAN ERWIN
GUEST WRITER

Sarasota County families
who cannot afford nutritious
food will soon be able to enjoy
fresh, seasonal produce as a
result of a new custom-made
mobile farmer's market
available through All Faiths
Food Bank.
The organization introduced
"Sprout" mobile farm market
at a ribbon-cutting ceremony
on Friday evening at the Venice
Yacht Club.
Laura Coyle, director of mar-
keting at All Faiths Food Bank,
said it is the first of its kind in
the area and is projected to
deliver 64,000 pounds of fresh
produce in 2014 to people in
need throughout the county.
"This product is a result of
two years in the making, and
we are very proud to be able to

offer this kind service to
those who need it," Coyle
said.
The produce on the
truck will be distributed
through a free voucher
system for clients of All
Faiths Food Bank's net-
work of more than 100
partner pantries, soup
kitchens, churches and
community centers.
Everything within the
unit is going to cost one
dollar (voucher).
"It might be three or
four tomatoes in a bag
or one large squash, but
it will speed up things Mich
having everything the the r
same price," said Scott fresh
Malcom, corporate office
executive for All Faiths
Food Bank. "We want to
be able to move as quickly as
possible from one site to the
next."
The pilot pro-
gram is planned
to begin on Jan.
20. The unit
will stop at six
S different sites.
The locations
were chosen
based on the
amount of vol-
unteers at the
agency, parking
availability and
consumer need.

"We are going to try the

where our efforts should be

said. "We wanted to keep our
focus tight initially so as we
expand we will better be able
to define the expectations of
the agencies and broaden our
spectrum."
Michael Nemser, chair of the
Venice Yacht Club Charitable
Foundation, facilitated the
event.
"We wanted the VYC chari-
table foundation to participate
in a program that will make a
meaningful difference in the
community," Nemser said. 'As
a foundation, we are proud to
supply the seed money for this
project."


Director of Community
Investment for Gulf Coast
Community Foundation Jon
Thaxton said the idea became
a priority after learning that
more than 50 percent of the
students in Sarasota County
Schools qualified for free or
reduced lunches.
"The destination of this
truck is curing the hunger
problems that exist in
Sarasota County," Thaxton
said.
Tony Zumbano, com-
modore of the club, asked
the crowd for a moment of
silence to reflect upon the
recent death of David Yarzab.
Yarzab was the general
manager of the yacht club
and died on Jan. 1 in a motor-
cycle accident.
"David was a big supporter
of our foundation and would
have been very proud to be
here today," Zumbano said.


Venice jail


not a dead


idea

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Reopening the South County
Holding Facility is worth consid-
ering. That's the general consen-
sus of a jointVenice City Council
and North Port City Commission
discussion that took place this
week
Venice Mayor John Holic raised
the idea, saying perhaps North
Port andVenice might pitch in to
keep it going in some capacity.
The jail, which adjoins the
Venice Police Department facility,
was shuttered as of
Jan. 1 one of a few budget
saving moves by Sarasota County
Sheriff Tom Knight. Knight previ-
ously said arrests in South County
were down and cited the lack of
medical and food services at the
facility, along with the inability to
process juvenile and transgender
offenders.
Knight said the savings
could add up to over $1 million
annually.
But it will add to municipal
expenses, authorities say.
Venice Police Chief Tom
McNulty said there's no doubt his
department will feel an impact
from the closure. He's working on
an estimate of how much it will
cost the city, if anything, to add
staff to redirect detainees to the
Sarasota County Jail.
An early estimate is it could
add another $100,000 to the city
budget in transportation and
other costs.
North Port's police department
is considerably larger and pre-
sumably will add even more to its
budget. Between the two munic-
ipalities, Holic said, the facility
could be re-opened, if only for
high volume days or weekends
when crime is higher.

Venice biz gets rare, perfect rating by state


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Venice has one of only 12
food service establishments in
the Sunshine State recognized
during recent inspections by
the Department of Business
and Professional Regulation
for having no safety or sanita-
tion violations within the past
year.
Michael Elden, co-owner of
Bonnell's Boutique & Winery,
101 West Venice Ave., Suite 13,
received a letter from Florida
Gov. Rick Scott commending
him for demonstrating such a
high level of attention to detail
and commitment to excellence.


"I am very happy because
it is pretty difficult not to get
a violation," Elden said. "The
state regulates us twice a year."
Bonnell's, operated by Elden
and co-owner Lisa Terraglia, was
opened on West Miami Avenue
six years ago. lden moved to the
300 block of West Venice Avenue
for four years before occupying
the present location in the 100
Block in 2011.
They have recently acquired
an additional unit but have
made no decision at this stage
as to what they have planned.
In the store, they have a large
selection of wines and beers
that they serve by the glass to
customers who can relax at


the bar. Food items including
cheese and crackers, pate, fruit
plates and homemade items
to complement wines are
available from 10 a.m. to close
at 9 p.m.
Regulating more than one
million Florida businesses
and professionals is the role
of The Division of Hotels and
Restaurants. They work to
protect the health and safety
of the public by providing the
industry with inspections and
regulation.
The Division's main priority
is to ensure that food is stored,
prepared and served safely for
the enjoyment of Floridians
and guests.

By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

Venice Mayor John
Holic made some
headway this week in
seeking support from sur-
rounding municipalities
to rethink how Sheriff's
Office patrols are funded.
At a joint meeting
between the elected
leaders of North Port and
Venice, the North Port
City Commission agreed
to study further the idea
of paying for a portion of
the Sheriffs Office budget
by installing a MSTU, or
Municipal Services Taxing
Unit.
A citizens law enforce-
ment class given through
the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office had an un-
intended consequence.
Holic was looking at a
map of the 19 districts
patrolled by sheriffs
deputies and realized that
North Port, Venice and
the city of Sarasota didn't
figure into those daily
patrol efforts, he said.
He wondered why the
municipalities were being
taxed but not patrolled.
It was then he won-
dered if it were possible
for the cities, who have


their own police services,
to opt out of paying for
a portion of the Sheriff's
Office budget by creating
a MSTU in unincorpo-
rated parts of the county
where they receive full
patrol services.
With $40 million of
the $100 million sheriff's
budget going toward the
jail and the court system,
Holic said he would like
to address the $60 million
that goes toward law
enforcement efforts like
patrols.
Holic thinks that
Venice and North Port are
responsible for roughly
$20 million of that total
and believes that a MSTU
would help to offset the
monies left out of the cof-
fers by the municipalities,
although Holic admitted
the details haven't been
fully hashed out.
"We don't have a
definable level of service
we should be obtaining
from our county taxes,
yet we all pay identical
millage to the county,"
Holic said.
It was one of a dozen
or so issues discussed
Monday during a joint
meeting between
the North Port City


Commission and
Venice City Council
at the Morgan Family
Community Center,
a meeting that was
skipped byVenice council
members Bob Daniels
and Jeanette Gates.
Gates and Daniels pre-
viously said they wouldn't
attend a meeting with
North Port until the next
election, citing city efforts
to rebuild its relationship
with Sarasota County of-
ficials. Gates said last year
that she had no interest in
meeting with North Port
commissioners because
they often bash county
commissioners.
Yet, the idea of an
MSTU garnered mostly
positive support from
both boards, although
North Port Mayor Jim
Blucher andVenice City
Council member Jim
Bennett expressed doubt.
Blucher warned of a
"balloon effect" on the
SCSO budget, which,
should it decrease by
20 percent, as Holic
suggested, would impact
the county's budget
elsewhere.
'Anytime you lower
it one place, it goes
up somewhere else,"


Blucher added.
Venice councilman
Emilio Carlesimo scoffed
at the idea of the so-
called balloon effect,
saying that Sheriff Tom
Knight's decision to
shutter the South County
Holding Facility had
balloon effects on North
Port andVenice, effects
that both cities have yet
to fully understand.
"(Knight) was acting
in a fiscal manner and I
didn't have any problem
with that. Just like I feel
we're acting in a prudent
fiscal manner," he said of
the possible MSTU. "If it
has a balloon effect, he
has to deal with it."
Holic called residents
of unincorporated
communities like
Nokomis and Laurel the
"real beneficiaries" of
the services provided
by the Sheriff's Office,
and alluded to a sense of
double taxation because
Venice and North Port
residents have chosen to
live in a municipality.
"We're living in city
limits because there are
services in these cities
we're willing to pay for,"
Holic said.

from Oct. 28 to Dec. 12.
More than $62,000 worth
of property was stolen and
one home was ransacked,
according to a Sheriff's
Office press release.
Authorities say the break
in the burglaries came
thanks to a Dec. 14 traffic
stop of a vehicle driven by
James Bradley Moore in
which Tiffany Lee Meyers,
Zachary M. Johnson and
another man were riding,
according to a Sheriff's
Office press statement.
As it happened, that was
the same day Maddox went
to a nearby gas station and
asked the manager if any sil-
ver money or unusual coins
had turned up. She identi-
fied some of the rare coins
as hers and called deputies,
asking the manager to keep
the security video ready for
law enforcement to review
That evening she and
her mother witnessed the
culprits at a nearby party
house, taking Maddox's
belongings from their house


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8,22014


and putting them into five
separate cars. Deputies
showed up, and after 20
minutes managed to get
the occupants to come to
the door. They came back
to Maddox with a necklace
one of the women was
wearing.
"I don't understand why
they let them go and did not
make them open the trunk
of the car when we had just
witnessed them putting
our daughter's Christmas
present into the truck. He
stated that he did not have
cause.
'Are you kidding me? Five
minutes after the deputies
leave, we look from front
porch and see eight kids
come running out of the
house. I see them with my
suitcase, my pillow case
swinging in the air with gifts
in it, as they are running.
I'm only 100 feet from them.
We're running at the yard
screaming at them. One has
my Raggedy Ann doll. I see
my husband's shotgun case.
As we get to the driveway,
they drive away, laughing,
flipping us the bird.
"It was like I was watching
a movie. You just can't make
this stuff up," Maddox said.


Moore was arrested on
drug charges that same day,
and items found in the vehi-
cle were identified as stolen
property from the burglary
of Maddox's home.
Two days later, Johnson
went to the Sheriff's
Office to be interviewed.
According to authorities, a
deputy saw a suitcase in the
bed of his truck that had the
name of another burglary
victim on it. Johnson denied
knowing anything about
the suitcase or the stolen
property seized in the traffic
stop.
A search of the truck
revealed more stolen items
in the suitcase and in the
cab of the truck. Johnson
claimed ignorance about
the stolen goods.
In an interview the same
day, Meyers told deputies
that she and Johnson had
taken stolen property from
Moore's residence and
thrown it into a dumpster
behind Frank Theaters in
South Venice. Deputies


learned that Moore had
called Meyers from jail on a
recorded line and instructed
her to get rid of the items,
which included a doll
matching the ones hanging
on Johnson's mirror.
When Meyers was
arrested, she was wearing a
pair of shoes taken in one of
the burglaries. She also had
a key to a storage unit in
her possession. The storage
unit, rented to Moore,
contained even more stolen
property.
Further investigation
disclosed at least two trans-
actions in which Meyers
pawned jewelry and coins,
claiming to be the lawful
owner.
Moore, 25, 2200 block of
Woodmere Road, Venice,
was charged with six counts
of grand theft. He's in jail in
Manatee County accused of
violating probation but will
be transferred to Sarasota
County to face charges
there.
Meyers, 26, 3000 block of


Sunset Beach Drive, Venice,
was charged with two
counts of tampering with
evidence; two counts of
accessory after the fact; two
counts of dealing in stolen
property; and one count of
providing false information
to a pawn broker.
Johnson, 20, 3000 block of
Sunset Beach Drive, Venice,
was charged with two
counts each of tampering
with evidence, accessory
after the fact and grand
theft. He and Meyers are
both out on bond.
Since the crimes,
Maddox has purchased a
gun. She says she wants
to feel safe about going
outside in her neighbor-
hood again. She is a local
resident with a large family
in the area, who knows
some of the parents of the
youth involved. She's even
received Facebook threats,
which law enforcement are
looking into.
Maddox says she's not
going anywhere. Some of


the neighbors are support-
ing her.
"They're all tired of what's
going on around here,"
Maddox said.
The neighbors have
already pressured one
of the Grinches to move
elsewhere.
In the meantime, the
Maddox's are still visiting
local pawn shops, hoping
to find the stolen wedding
rings that belonged to their
parents and her deceased
brother.
Detectives are still investi-
gating these crimes. Anyone
with information regarding
them should call Criminal
Investigations at 941-861-
1719 or, to be eligible for up
to a $1,000 reward, Crime
Stoppers at 941-366-8477.

Missing Nokomis man

found in Miami


STAFF REPORT

William P. Sullivan, who
was reported missing
from his Mission Valley
home on Sunday, Jan. 5,
was located
Tuesday in
Miami.
According
to a Sarasota
County
Sheriff's
Office press
SULLIVAN statement,
the Nokomis
resident was at a South
Florida hospital Tuesday
evening being evaluated,
awaiting the arrival of
family members to take
him home. No other in-
formation about locating
him was provided.
Sullivan, 83, left his
home at about 2:30 p.m.
Sunday to go shopping


and didn't return. A Silver
Alert was issued Sunday
evening to solicit the
public's assistance in
finding him.
At the time he was
wearing a blue sweater,
khaki pants and white
shoes and was driving a
2005 red, four-door Buick
Lacrosse, with Florida
plate I614JE. The alert
said that Sullivan has
medical issues.
On Monday afternoon,
Sheriff's Office spokes-
person Wendy Rose said
the office was tracking
Sullivan's most recent
activity and notifying
other agencies around
the area where he was last
known to be.
Information about the
search was viewed more
than 6,000 times on the
Gondolier Sun's Facebook
page.

"The holding cell is no
longer being manned by
the county," Holic said.
"That puts a strain on
Venice and North Port to
go all the way to Sarasota.
I hope you pack a bag.
It's almost a vacation for
somebody" to travel that


far, he quipped.
"I would like to see us
come up with a way to
use an existing facility so
that two municipality's
(patrols) don't have to
make that long haul in the
middle of the night," Holic
said.
"How can we make it
economically viable to
use it for what it's de-
signed for not at their
convenience but at our


convenience," Holic said.
Commissioner Rhonda
DiFranco, retired law
enforcement, agreed it's
worth consideration.
"It does put our officers
at risk," she said, noting
an officer transporting
a detainee is one less
patrolling the streets of
North Port and assisting
other officers.
"You do have to have

baby sitters. I would want
us to work together (on
that)," DeFranco said.
North Port Mayor Jim
Blucher directed the city
manager from North Port
to work with his counter-
part in Venice on a plan.
"Let those guys ham-
mer it out to see if there is
something to do," he said.

Grad rate, dropout rate both down


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
The Sarasota County
School District dropout
rate for 2012-13 improved
compared to the previous
year, but the graduation
rate decreased slightly,
according to the Florida
Department of Education
figures released recently.
Graduation rates are
calculated by comparing
the number of students
who start in a public high
school as freshmen to


the number of students
in the same class who
graduate four years
later. The dropout rate
indicates the number of
students who drop out in
a single year.
According to Sarasota
County school spokesman
Scott Ferguson, federal
regulations require each
state to calculate a grad-
uation rate that includes
standard diplomas but
excludes both regular and
adult General Educational
Development certificates,


and special diplomas
awarded to some students
with disabilities who don't
meet the requirements for
standard diplomas.
The 2012-13 graduation
rate for Sarasota County
high schools is 76.2 per-
cent, which is higher
than the state graduation
rate of 75.6 percent but
down from its 2011-12
graduation rate of 78 per-
cent. Sarasota County's
graduation rate has been
consistently higher than
the state percentage since


2003-04.
Sarasota Schools
Superintendent Lori
White said that she
was pleased Sarasota
County's dropout rate
for the 2012-13 school
year was 1.5 percent, an
improvement from the
2011-12 dropout rate of
2.2 percent. Venice High's
graduation rate also
went down slightly, from
74.8 percent to 73.9. The
VHS dropout rate im-
proved from 2.1 percent
to 1.2 percent.

Local uses event to invent Buddy Bucket


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Every year, more than
700 people die from
ladder accidents. The
major cause is carrying
something while trying to
climb the ladder.
A local inventor has
built and is selling a prod-
uct that could prevent
many of those falls,
stopping many fatalities.
"Everyone needs a
Buddy Bucket when they
are painting" is the slogan
of inventor Dan Dattilo of
Nokomis.
The two-piece buddy
bucket is a paint bucket
that fits into a holder that
can be attached to the
painter's waist belt or held
by hand.
Designed with input
from engineers and
tradespeople, it is ergo-
nomically styled for the
user's maximum accessi-
bility, comfort and suit-
ability. There are fittings
in the holder for the user
to insert screwdrivers,
painter's scraper, and
hooks to attach cleaning
cloths. The handle of


the bucket is shaped to
provide a comfortable and
muscle relaxing grip.
The idea came to
Dattilo, who has a
background in the
construction industry and
operated his own business
remodeling kitchens,
baths and roofing of com-
mercial and residential
properties.
"I was on a ladder
painting a ceiling when
the homeowner, a lady,
called me down," Dattilo
said. "We discussed the
painting job; then I decid-
ed to move the ladder,
forgetting the gallon of
paint on the top which
fell, splattered over her
and the kitchen floor.
Frantically, I cleaned-up
the fast-drying paint
on the floor while she
watched, laughing at my
misfortune."
The incident prompted
him to decide there had
to be a better way of
managing paint cans.
Considering the existing
holster holders available
at hardware stores, he
found they too were
unstable when attached to


the painter's belt.
He ignored his idea
because he was fulfilling
major commercial reno-
vation contracts traveling
around New Hampshire,
until 2001 when he was
involved in a really bad
accident. A young student
fell asleep while driving
and hit Dattilo head-on,
causing very serious
injuries.
It was a long recovery
with no likelihood of
returning to his job and
business, eventually to
leave him with permanent
neck and back injuries.
Unable to work, with a lot
of free time, he recalled
the incident of the falling
paint can.
Research indicated
all the existing buckets
dripped paint, a problem
he resolved to overcome
with a new design.
Experimenting with
paper and card buckets
fitting into various holder
designs proved successful.
Designing a non-drip
bucket fitting into a holder
with a belt attachment, he
consulted with engineers
and painters.


The next move was
patents, and to save great
expense, he wrote his
own, a difficult process
because they have to be
shown to be different from
all other existing patents.
On average, only 3 percent
of patents awarded are
actually commercialized.
Some two years later,
he chose a Chinese
manufacturer to produce
the Buddy Bucket system.
The plastic non-drip
bucket fits into a holder
that is attached securely
and upright to the
pants belt worn by most
painters, amateur and
professional.
The most expensive
part is the bucket, which
had to be made in two
parts with the edge at
an angle for the paint to
drip back into the bucket.
Incorporated in the
bucket is a strong magnet
to grip the brush, holding
it at an angle so the paint
drips back into bucket.
Fittings in the holder
provide for accessories,
screwdrivers, an all-pur-
pose tool and hooks for
rag holders.


PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
Inventor Dan Dattilo of Nokomis displays the specially designed
Buddy holder with tools and cloth accessories and the Buddy


Bucket.
Prototypes have been
tested by several users,
and a week ago, Dattilo
received his first 1,200
Buddy Buckets. Priced
for retail at $24.95, he
plans to visit all the
local paint stores ini-
tially. Having lined up
financing should he get
a million dollar order,
he will in due course ap-
proach major hardware
supermarkets.
"Overall, it has already
cost me more than
$100,000 even though I


have done much of the
work, and that cost does
not include the product
manufacture," he said.
"The Buddy System
tooling in the U.S. would
have been $40,000 so I
had to take it to China
where it cost $4,000."
Dattilo's company is
Big Boy Industries, and
he welcomes business
inquiries by mail to 1532

Loving the ocean
because it inspires her
most to create all her
art, Lorene Hill opened
Oceanmuse at 312 Laurel
Road in Laurel Square
next to the old Laurel Post
Office. A photographer,
she has unique, one-
of-a-kind photography,
pottery, weaving, spin-
ning and knitting.
The art features a wide
range of beach, surfing,
underwater, sunset, light-
house and Asian photog-
raphy. She makes pottery
coffee cups, bowls, plates
and Japanese good-luck
keepsakes and shisa


dog sets, and spins wool
shawls, purses and hats.
She repurposes furniture,
such as a door redesigned
to be a headboard and
picture frames from
windows.
"It is an eclectic store,
having a little bit of every-
thing," said Hill, a native
of Maine who spent 13
years in the military as
an Air Force survival
instructor, eight of those
on the tropical island of
Okinawa.
Retiring to North
Port, she has spent five
years selling her art to
galleries and at farmers
markets until deciding
to open this store, open
from 10 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. weekdays and
Saturday mornings. Call
941-441-5822.

Community
mourns
Businesspeople are
such an asset to our
community, and a week
ago we lost such an
entrepreneur. At 52,
David Yarzab, general
manager of Venice Yacht
Club and a member of
Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Club, died as a result of a
traffic accident.
While enjoying his
hobby of motorcycling,
he was seriously injured
in Nokomis when a
vehicle pulled in front of
him. He died shortly after
at Sarasota Memorial
Hospital.
Yarzab's career epit-
omized the American
dream. In 26 years, he
obtained promotion from


maintenance to become
general manager. He
will be remembered for
unselfish commitment
to help any and all who
called upon his services
in this community. A cele-
bration of life takes place
this Sunday at 11 a.m. at
the Venice Yacht Club.

Certification award
Michael Long, senior
vice president of Merrill
Lynch's office at 871
Venetia Bay Blvd., recent-
ly earned the Certified
Private Wealth Advisor
certification. It's an award
for those who are trained
to work with high net
worth clients during their
wealth life cycle: accumu-
lation, preservation and
distribution. A resident of
Nokomis, he joined the
company in 1978. Call
941-486-3903.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


Meeting between Venice, North Port was a positive one


Relations got snippy last year
when North Port city commissioners
proposed holding a joint meeting
with Venice city council members to
discuss issues of mutual interest.
A routine request escalated into a
political standoff.
At first, the offer was rebuffed by
the Venetians, some of whom said
they were afraid of being dragged
into a "Bash Sarasota County" match
by their counterparts in North Port.
They considered the North Porters
anti-business and antagonistic to the
county. They wanted more distance,
not less.
The meeting was scheduled,
though, and the two boards finally sat
down together Monday afternoon at
a big conference room at the Morgan


Family Community Center in North
Port. There was a sizable crowd of
citizens for a Monday afternoon.
Four city police officers manned the
event, which seemed an over-the-top
precaution.
No fireworks, though. Never a
discouraging word, in fact.
The two boards managed to sit down
and discuss a broad variety of issues
cordially. They tended to agree on a
number of things, some of which were
lightweight issues and others that
could have significant consequences.
And they did open what seemed to
be a friendly line of communication,
which is always positive.
Most of the specifics involved the
standard fare for these types of meet-
ings. The two boards suggested ways


they may work together to improve
water quality and ways to cross-pro-
mote each city's events and festivals.
There was a presentation on pro-
posed bicycle recreation trails between
the two cities and discussion of Wi-Fi
capabilities. The need for a covered
swimming pool was discussed.
Most of those issues, put on the
agenda at the urging of North Port
Commissioner Cheryl Cook, were
punted to staff for further consid-
eration. Typical for these meetings:
Decision-makers agree to investigate
and staff ends up with more work.
Who knows? Something may come of
it.
But two matters brought by Venice
officials had real heft. Both boards
agreed to study the possibility of


establishing a municipal services
taxing unit for the county Sheriff's
Office, something that could lead to
lower tax rates for city residents. The
idea, championed byVenice Mayor
John Holic, could gain more traction
with the support of both boards.
They also agreed to look into how
they might reopen the prisoner hold-
ing facility in Venice that was recently
closed by the Sheriff's Office.
In the end, this seemed a productive
meeting, despite the fact that Venice
City Council Members Jeanette Gates
and Bob Daniels had chosen not to
attend. The tone was upbeat. No gratu-
itous county-bashing occurred. The
only "alliances" formed seemed to be
healthy ones.
All positive.


Dental emergency


leads to frantic calls


One can only guess what
this year marked as 2014 will
bring the world, our country
and our community over the
next year. I am sure we all have
a list of things we would enjoy
experiencing become reality.
Ironically, my buddy Ethan in
Venice has already seen some
unfortunate luck as he lost the
motor off his boat he received
as a Christmas present over the
weekend.
Certainly, this is not what
he had hoped the New Year
would bring. Couple that with
his precious Chicago Bears not
playing in 2014 and this poor
guy has not started out 2014
well. There is hope as he is an
industrious one and has start-
ed his very own motor fund.
Knowing this kid, he will be
back on the water soon as he
has the heart of a lion and the
determination of Ferris Bueller.
In fact, he just could be a
Bueller.
My luck was not much better
as Monday I had a major dental
emergency, which in the scheme
of things does not feel all that
bad unless you are freakishly
weird about dentists. I have a
dentist in Tampa who after years
coerced me into letting him do
dental work on me.
He is the only person al-
lowed to work on my teeth and
I have to tell you that after 15
years, I finally agreed to recog-
nize him on all the paperwork
as my dentist. I don't like the
whole dentistry thing.
Anyway, this emergency
occurred at 12:30 p.m. I had
a major meeting with our
"Best Of Venice" committee
at 3 p.m.; there is no way I am
going to make it to Tampa. So I
leave the office almost panicky.
I don't like anyone working in
my mouth, let alone a stranger,
but I have to be at the meeting.
I call our medical rep,
Charleen Myers, for assistance
with my dental emergency.
Charleen can be a very con-
cerned and helpful person
when challenged with an
obstacle and begins the
questioning.


I am a guy; I don't want to
answer questions when I am
100 percent. When there is
a dental emergency, I really
don't want to be involved in an
interrogation. After 30 min-
utes of answering questions,
Charleen felt confident enough
to call a dentist client of ours
to fix my issue.
Bad luck again. They were
not in the office. Charleen calls
back, and more questions,
more time out the window
and we have a referral. In the
meantime, I do what every man
does when there is no hope in
sight, we call her the wife or
girlfriend as we have made
all efforts to fix said problem.
After answering all questions
- again, it's like they have
a check off list for questions
designed for any scenario ever
- my girlfriend springs into
action in Sarasota. We are now
past 1 p.m. and I am sweating
that I will not be ready for
the meeting. Charleen comes
through with a referral.
As I am talking to her refer-
ral, it is determined that they
don't have all of the needed
material for this emergency and
asks me to call Davis and Beyer,
Dental Health Professionals.
This team went into action
from the first contact. I was told
to come in and they would get
me in right away and I would
make the meeting.
I call my girlfriend and tell
her my problem is solved as I
am driving toward the destina-
tion. Now she has to cancel all
plans she has made, but lucky
for me she is not angry.
Upon reaching the location,
I was asked to fill out paper-
work, but was told by the lady
up front I would not have
time to finish it as the dentist
would call me in right away.
That did happen. The dentist
and his assistant had me in the
chair and numbed up in five
minutes, assuring me that the
numb feeling would be gone
by 2:30 p.m.
They did their thing on my
emergency and had me on my
feet and out the door in record
time. The entire staff was
accommodating, focused and
knew the job that needed to be
done. More importantly, they
performed the task flawlessly.
Davis and Beyer, on this
day you were my National
Champion as you saved my
day, and you stayed focused on
the entire 60 minutes, not just
59. Perhaps the Auburn Tigers
could learn a lesson from this
staff.

Panhandlers. I'm calling
about all the panhandlers in
back of the Publix Shopping
Plaza on U.S. 41 in Venice.
Can't we do something about
them? They are pathetic look-
ing, and I don't think we need
them. At least tell people not
to give them anything. That
will make them go away.
Water Plan. To City Council:
Open your minds. Listen to
your constituents. Keep your
consultant recommending an
underground filtration system
which decreases bacteria
count similar to that in normal
groundwater. Sounds like this
can be done for about the
same price as your plan to
dump untreated water on any
part of our wonderful beach.
Open your minds.
Water Spin. I am calling in
response to the article about
the solution that's in the
works for solving our con-
tamination issues at Venice
Beach. We should now call
Venice Spin City because that
is all the Gondolier has done
regarding this article and this
issue. This is spin. The title
of the article reads, "City to
dump untreated bacteria on
the beach." Well, that is ex-
actly what's been going on all
these years, and that's why our
beach gets closed repeatedly.
Some years as many as four or
five times.
The solution is what en-
gineers hired by the city of
Venice have come up with.
These are professionals; this is
their job. This is not a bunch
of Golden Beach residents. The
same residents that thought
they could put one over on the
FAA and get our desirable air-
port closed; which, of course,
they failed after costing all of
us a ton of money.
Now how much is this going


Let 'em



















Have It
to cost us, the rest of the
residents, to keep our beach
safe? We are talking about a
swale up in the dunes. You
would not be able to stand at
the water's edge and see the
swale. We are now and have
been dumping our untreated
bacteria on the beach! Now
the plan is to finally stop
doing that. What is the prob-
lem here? How about spin
the other way, and make our
beach safe.
Water Praise. What the
53 Venice residents who
endorsed the Jan. 4 Guest
Column entitled "City to
dump untreated bacteria on
beach" failed to mention is
that the untreated bacteria
from those two major out-
flows on the island has been
running across our beach
and into our Gulf for many,
many years. Instead of crying,
"Not my backyard," why not
applaud the city and the
engineers involved who have
worked very hard in the past

two or more years.
Now we can confirm the
source of the problem but
to offer what appears to be a
viable and expedient solution
in the form of that eco-bio
swale. It's a great first step at
solving this ongoing problem,
and if there are any negative
effects, surely they can be
addressed just as expediently
in the future.
Water Eyesore. Regarding
the Guest Column "City to
dump untreated bacteria on
beach": I agree entirely with
the Guest Column. I would
have signed it happily; and I'm
glad somebody is doing some-
thing to deter the Venice City
Council from a precipitous, ill-
advised approach to a problem
that has been on Venice Beach
for many years.
Yes, occasionally, it has to
close. Putting an open eyesore
on the beach will not help
that situation and, in fact, it
seems absurd. All it takes is a
big storm to wash all of that
immediately into the Gulf.
There has to be a better way;
and the fact this is being done
so precipitously leads me to
believe that there are other
interests involved than the
city's people.
Water & Storms. I am calling
about the city's decision to
put bacteria on part of our
beautiful Venice Beach. What
happens when we have a tor-
rential rain or any rain, for that
matter. Doesn't all the bacteria
then go directly into the Gulf?

"The general perception is that hearing loss is a relatively inconsequential
part of aging," says Frank Lin, M.D., an otologist and epidemiologist at

a much more important role in brain health that we've previously thought."

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL



Angelo comes off bench to lead Indians over Booker


By NATE COWAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Sophomore forward
Taylor Angelo has been


a starter for the Venice
Indians since the day she
stepped on campus. After
going through some of-
fensive struggles. Indians


coach Jim Davis decided
to use Angelo in a
reserve role for Tuesday's
contest against the
Booker Tornadoes.
Angelo responded
with her best game of
the season, scoring 19
points and pulling down
five rebounds in leading
the Indians to a 62-52
victory.
"I've played terrible
lately," Angelo said.
"Coach said he was go-
ing to do this and there
wasn't much I could do
about it. My teammates
told me to keep my head
up because they know
what I can do."
Davis said, "She has
been struggling for a
few games and I'm glad
to see her attack the
basket. She was finish-
ing shots. For us to be
successful this season,
we need Taylor to play
like this."

Mariah Miller scores two of
her nine points in Venice's
62-52 win over Booker
Tuesday night.


Flynn added 17 points,
four rebounds, three as-
sists and three steals as
the Indians used a 19-2
run in the third quarter
to take the lead and not
look back.
"She is so much farther
ahead than I thought she
would be with her knee,"
Davis said. "On offense
she has so many weap-
ons. On defense, she
doesn't have the same
lateral quickness, but it's
coming."
The Tornadoes got out
to a 12-4 lead in the first
quarter before Venice
closed with six straight
points to only trail 12-10
after one.
"We missed like six
layups," Davis said.
"Those were shots we
normally make. It wasn't
anything they were
doing on defense, we
just couldn't put the ball
in the basket."
Booker switched
to a 1-3-1 trap in the
second quarter and it
confused the Indians.
After tying the game at
20, the Tornadoes scored
seven straight points


to take a 27-20 lead.
Yamaris Guevarez and
Cellexia Foster scored
seven points each in the
quarter. Flynn scored
five of Venice's 13 points
in the quarter to keep
the Indians close.
"The 1-3-1 has wide
gaps but they're really
athletic and close those
gaps," Davis said. "It
took some adjusting on
our part."
The Tornadoes
continued to frustrate
the Indians, who had
no answer for Foster
and Guevarez. The two
guards helped Booker
extend its lead to 37-27
before the Indians went
on a 17-0 run.
Every Indian got
involved as Angelo pow-
ered to the basket for
layups, Flynn beat the
Tornadoes in transition
and Tiara Ward handled
the offensive glass for
easy points. The Indians
took a 46-39 lead into
the fourth quarter.
"We changed our
defensive position-
ing," Davis said. "We
came more up the line


so we could help on
(Guevarez) without
leaving our teammates
out to dry."
Venice continued their
onslaught in the fourth
as Flynn and Angelo
continued to exploit
mismatches.
"When I see someone
like that in front of me,
I attack the basket,"
Angelo said. "Now that I
know that I can do this, I
will play better."
The Indians also had
a strong performance
from the free-throw line,
connecting on 15 of their
20 attempts.
"Shooting that well
was huge for us," Davis
said. "We're good
shooters and we did a
great job."
Along with Flynn and
Angelo, Mariah Miller
scored nine points and
grabbed five rebounds.
Ward scored eight points
and led Venice with 12
rebounds.
Guevarez led the
Tornadoes with 18
points and eight assists,
while Foster added 16
points.

Golf's Old Magic: Reborn in Florida


As 2014 begins, I find
myself thinking back to
the dramatic changes in
my life since August 2012,
when my wife and I retired
to Venice and fell in love
with the local flora and
fauna, the vibrant colors,
the exotic birdlife, and the
mild temperature of the
Gulf and its oh-so-won-
derful beaches.
Among the many
miracles of our new life in
retirement was a freedom
I began experiencing after
almost 50 years of working


and raising a family. I was
finally able to do whatever
I really wanted to do.
In beautiful Venice, I
could now walk the beach,
swim, photograph birds,
ride a bike, and play
golf- not just 24/7, but
24/7/365! And I could en-
gage in all these outdoor
endeavors without having
to feel there was some-
thing more important that
I ought to be doing first.
So, for most of 2013,
I was intoxicated by a
feeling of physical renew-
al. Was there any limit to
the old muscles I could
reinvigorate by using them
in this burst of physical
activity?
I started playing golf at
the Lakes ofVenice course,
and my new buddies, like
former buddies up North,
told me I had a smooth
swing and that if I played a


lot, I'd be good.
Well, I played twice a
week for about a year,
but didn't really get much
better. As disappointment
set in, I signed up for a
lesson and Rebecca
Johnson, the teaching pro
at Capri Isles Golf Course,
helped me understand
(finally) that golf isn't just
a physical game; it's a
cerebral one, too.
Since August, I've been
contributing senior golf
stories to the Venice
Gondolier Sun. Writing a
monthly column about
golf has given me a chance
to expand my perspective
on the game.
Primarily, I still play to
be out amidst the beauty
of the environment; but
also for the exertion -
and the endlessly variable
challenges the game
presents.


But in writing about
golf, I've also developed a
genuine appreciation for
the humor, desperation,
and bravery of my fellow
senior golfers.
I've also been learning
how to learn how to
improve and enjoy my golf
skills, whatever they are
and aren't.
I still love walking nine
holes at Capri Isles in the
late afternoons, often
all alone on the course.
I'm vividly aware of the
surroundings and of the
physicality of walking and
playing. It takes everything
I have; my lower back acts
up.
After awhile I begin
realizing that creating
successful shots is not
the same thing as being
enraptured with these late
afternoon walkabouts.
When I ask a neighbor


of mine who plays par golf
what his secret is, he tells
me to focus on putting
first, then chipping to
isolate one type of shot
after another and focus
my practice on that one
shot.
So it's not just about
knocking myself out
physically, no matter how
happily, to the point of
exhaustion and pain.
Now I study YouTube
teaching videos, then
go out and work on one
aspect of my game at a
time.
Worshipping the
deity that is golf, I actually
proclaimed my love of the
game aloud a few evenings
ago.
What made me so hap-
py was a steeply undulat-
ing practice green and
the variety of interesting
putts it required of this


supplicant to the golf gods.
I enjoyed the placement
of the holes, right on hilly
crests, so that even putts
that just missed the cup by
an inch, and almost died
at the pin, could trickle
down a steep slope and
wind up 15 feet below the
hole!
Once again I was alone
on a golf course at dusk,
this time on a cool (for
Florida), breezy, late
December early evening.
Walking alone to my
car, still enjoying myself
immensely from the
challenges of the prac-
tice green, in the chilly
December dusk, I heard
myself proclaim, "I love
you, golf!"

Fortunate felines get a new leash on life


By SUSAN ERWIN
GONDOLIER SUN
CORRESPONDENT
Lost, hungry and aban-
doned just a few months
ago, three lucky cats are


a cat and the microchip
matched an address in
Venice.
"We contacted the
people and they were
packing up to leave the
very next day they


stranger, Cruiser calmly
greeted us with one
quiet meow," Burke said.
"Cruiser settled in at the
shelter and became our
self-appointed office
kitty."
Cruiser was reunited
with his family six weeks
later.

Fixing Holly
When Rick and Marilyn
Thomas found Holly,
a beautiful brown and
white cat, she was emaci-
ated, could barely move
and her right front leg
looked like it was broken
at the joint.
They immediately
called Shelley Kingsbury
and Kurt Winter at the
Punta Gorda Animal
Hospital. Dr. Kingsbury
saw the little stray as the
last patient of the day.
Her paw was separated
from her leg and there
was an open puncture


wound in that area. She
vowed to save her.
After a thorough
examination, the doctor
suspected the leg bone
was badly infected and
the leg would have to be
amputated.
Rick was on the hunt
for a shelter that would
take a three-legged cat.
St. Francis Animal Rescue
offered to take the stray.
Holly continued to
amaze the doctors and
staff during her recov-
ery sitting up, eating
voraciously and using the
litter box.
"She (Holly) is de-
clawed, and the people
who found her think that
a larger animal must
have tried to get her but
she somehow got away,"
Burke said. "She is such
a loving cat and she has
really made a speedy
recovery considering all

St. Francis Animal
Rescue has had a few
remarkable rescue efforts
recently.
The no-kill cat and kit-
ten shelter and adoption
center in Venice was able
to return a stray cat found
in North Carolina to its
owners in Venice, who
were seasonal residents
preparing to head back
up north.

Returning Cruiser
Amy Burke, manager
at St. Francis Animal
Rescue, said she received
a phone call from a
rescue shelter in North
Carolina that had found

Burke. "This is a true tes-
tament that microchips
do work and can really
make a difference when
pets get lost."
John Gordon, a North
Carolina pilot who
volunteers for Pilots N
Paws, a network of private
pilots who donate their
time and their planes to
transport rescue animals,
offered to fly Cruiser
home.
The North Carolina
shelter agreed to board
him until his flight back.
Two weeks later, Cruiser
landed in Venice.

confined in a carrier for
over 12 hours in a small

'Loot' is outrageous on steroids


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Teenager Hal McLeavy
(Jory Murphy) can rob
a bank with Dennis
(Matthew Anderson), an
undertaker, connive with
Fay (Olivia Williamson),
his late mother's nurse
about where to hide the
money, but he cannot tell
a lie.
This is but a tiny bit of
the convoluted tale spun
by the late '60s British
playwright Joe Orton
in "Loot," the second
production of the season
by the second-year stu-
dents in the FSU/Asolo
Conservatory of Actor
Training.
"You've been a widower
for three days," Fay asks
the grieving widower
(Michael Frishman) on
the day of the funeral.
"Have you considered a
second wife yet?"
Mrs. McLeavy's body is
in the coffin in the parlor


of the McLeavy's hotel in
London. It is the day of
the funeral.
Mr. McLeavy is obvi-
ously distraught about
the death of his wife but
it seems that Fay, too, has
had an even unhappier
life.
"My husbands all died,"
she said. "I've had seven
you see."
Despite what has
happened to all her
former husbands, Dennis
is totally smitten with Fay.
Fay, on the other hand,
is more interested in the
grieving widower, or at
least in his estate. She
seems to have already
taken care of the late
wife's estate or so
she says as she tries to
convince Mr. McLeavy
to become her eighth
husband.
Hal and Dennis have
their own problem. They
need to hide the money
they stole from the bank
because they fear the


police may be on to them.
They involve Fay in their
dilemma for a share of
the "loot."
With Fay's help, the
corpse is stripped and
wrapped in a sheet and
the body stuffed in a cabi-
net, leaving the coffin as
a place to stash the cash.
During the exchange of
body and cash, it seems
one of Mrs. McLeavy's
glass eyes pops out and
rolls somewhere in the
room.
It is into this convolut-
ed scenario that a man
claiming to be from the
water department arrives.
Later we learn that the
man is Truscott (Brian
Owen) of "The Yard."
When he discovers
the wrapped body, Hal,
Dennis and Fay convince
him that what is wrapped
in the curtain is the
manikin she uses for
sewing clothing and will
be used to demonstrate at
a conference.

As Truscott peppers
the three with questions,
Hal blurts out that he had
a hand in the bank job.
Remember he cannot
tell a lie.


What Orton shows us
on stage is diabolically
outrageous and what
seems to occur offstage
is even more so as the
story escalates and poor

After saying 'never,' Fong leads by example, action


HOSPITAL
TALES
DEAN LAUX, GUEST COLUMNIST
There are three things
Jonathan Fong said he
would never do. First, he'd
never be a doctor.
Second, okay then, if he
did become a doctor, he'd
never be a heart surgeon.
Third, he'd never live in the
South. Those are fine words,
coming from a cardiac
surgeon in Venice, Fla.
But Jonathan Fong is
no ordinary physician.
A highly skilled surgeon,
he is one of the reasons
why Venice Regional
Medical Center has been
given a top rating (3 out
of 3 stars) by the Society
of Thoracic Surgeons for
the past three years, one
of only three hospitals in
Florida to do so.
He's had his share of
famous patients. Other
physicians have chosen
him when they them-
selves or their family
members needed a heart
procedure. And he has


PHOTO PROVIDED
Jonathan Fong, MD, is a
physician who practices what
he preaches.
built up a devoted follow-
ing of former patients who
swear by him as a doctor
and a friend.
Fong was one of four
children bom to Chinese
parents in Philadelphia, Pa.
"I was the middle
gestation," he says, a
turn of phrase that only a
physician would use.
His parents were both
pharmacists, and he had
three sisters, including
twins.


"One sister became
a pharmacist, another
became a nurse, and the
black sheep of the family
became an English teach-
er," he deadpans.
Sounds like someone
destined to enter the
medical profession.
"I wasn't interested in
medicine," he says. "I was
interested in the hard
sciences, but I went into
medicine because my
father wanted me to, and I
respected his wishes as his
only son."
It so happens that
Jonathan was the top
student in his high school
class of 800, and he was
given a chance to test for
a scholarship award that
would pay for an acceler-
ated five-year program at
Penn State and Thomas
Jefferson Medical College,
netting him a BS and an
MD degree. He took the
test, got the award, and
went.
"I felt honor-bound to
do that," he says, and 26
years later, he's very happy
he did. So are a lot of other
people here inVenice.


During his residency,
he did a rotation at
Columbia Medical
School, which had the
country's leading heart
transplant program, and
the whole process so
fascinated him that he
changed his career plan
from general surgery to
heart surgery. He had
already developed a great
pair of surgeons' hands.
"Whatever my mother
taught my sisters, she
taught me as well," he
said. "So I learned to sew,
cross-stitch, whatever,
when I was quite young. I
became very nimble with
my fingers, and that comes
in handy when I do surgical
stitching."
When he finished his res-
idency at Strong Memorial
Hospital in Rochester, N.Y.,
Dr. Fong joined the Ocala
Heart Institute at their
Leesburg, Fla., offices. And
when they opened an office
inVenice affiliated with
Venice Regional, he came
here in 2003.
Something beyond his
great surgical skill sets Fong
apart from many of his


colleagues. He is able to
cross the barriers that often
separate physicians from
their patients and staff.
"A lot of doctors com-
partmentalize their lives,
professional and personal,"
he says.
That's understandable,
because physicians need
to shield themselves from
the sufferings of their
patients, some of whom die
on them. The cumulative
psychological toll can be
devastating.
"I like talking to my
patients, finding out about
them, what they did with
their lives and careers," he
says. "It's fascinating. And
I've always appreciated the
collective wisdom of the
aged."
Now there's a man with
good judgment.
"I was raised as a
Christian," Fong says,
"and as a Christian, I was
always asking myself how
I could do a better job
of integrating my beliefs
with my work. I felt there
was a deeper purpose in
life beyond the practice of
medicine. I decided that


I could dedicate myself
to making people feel
better. I could correct
their anatomic abnormal-
ities so they'd feel better
physically, and I could
talk with them, or relate to
them so they'd feel better
psychologically."
That he has succeeded
in this is attested to by
the thick files of letters he
receives from his patients.
"I love to read their
letters," he says.
And why not? They're
filled with praise and
thanks for what Fong has
done for them.
Fong does not stop
there. Very early every
Thursday morning, he
leads a devotional session
for other members of
Venice Regional's staff:
nurses, physicians,
technicians, whoever
wants to attend. He tells
them to fulfill themselves
and to reach out to others,
to truly put their beliefs,
whatever they are, into
their work and their
relationships with others.
And you can bet he tells
them, "Never say never."


Pregnant women urged

to receive flu vaccine


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
COMMUNICATIONS
The Florida Department
of Health in Sarasota
County (DOH-Sarasota)
urges pregnant women to
receive the flu vaccination
due to the increased impact
influenza infections are
having on pregnant women

"The flu vaccine is the
single best way to prevent
flu," said DOH-Sarasota
Medical Director Dr.

want to make sure people

it is for pregnant women

Father's pain leads to sculpture with a story


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT
COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR
When Steve Jordan's
son Jamie died at 28 of
complications from drug
usage, he lost his best
friend.
Jordan had a hard time
coping in the past two
years since Jamie's death.
Eventually, he channeled
his sadness into some-
thing that could help
bring awareness and be a
tribute to Jamie.
Jordan began creating
a life-sized, portable


sculpture with the names
of other local young
people who died due to
drug-related activities.
"A parent should never
have to bury their child,"
said Jordan, a 30-year
resident of North Port. "As
I was working on the 'Tree
of Life,' I got help from
people who were recover-
ing from drug or alcohol
addictions. Together we
worked on this project
for hours. It was a way for
me to begin my healing
process, and for them to
work on something with


great meaning."
Jordan named his
artwork "The Tree of Life
If It Saves One Life." It is
a combination of etched
glass with a tribute to
Jamie. It has a small
statue of an angel.
Above the angel
are many branches.
Attached to some of
them are hearts made of
bronze with the names
of people who have
died some as young as
15 including Marissa
Martek, Sean Connor,
Calvin Pepe, Kristopher


Steve Jordan touches his son Jamie's copper heart on the sculpture he created as a tribute to
him and to promote awareness about the impact of drugs and alcohol on family and friends of
overdose victims not just the substance user. The sculpture is on display in front of Tri-County
Counseling, 12543 S. Tamiami Trail, North Port (near the Warm Mineral Springs Motel).

Zellas, Christopher
Wilson, Brandy Celine,
Catlin Pries Tap, Nathan
Easterly, Candice
Brown Courtright, Chad
Desantis, Justin Davis and
Vinny Milano.
Also on the tree is
15-year-old Nick Block's
name. He was found dead
of an accidental drug
overdose alongside his
mother, who survived an
overdose and is now in
federal prison along with
her husband, who was
implicated in supplying
his family with the pills
and alcohol in a North
Port hotel room in 2010.
"Most of the people
on the tree are from the
North Port area," said
Candace Townsend,
certified addiction
counselor at Tri-County
Counseling. "Addiction
is a deeply concerning
issue because it impacts
family members who
have suffered a loss. Steve
is offering to add names
of others who have died
from addiction to his
'Tree of Life' as a way to
help more families."
Two years ago, Sarasota
County shut down pill


mills, where doctors were
prescribing medication
freely with limited state
supervision. As a result,
there were fewer deaths
(in some cases acciden-
tal) from prescription
medications from 2011 to
2012.
However, Jordan said it
was too late for his son.
"I can't get my son
back," he said. "The one
thing I can do is offer the
'Tree of Life If it Saves
One Life' to churches,
schools, at the library
and other local places to
display for a month at a
time. It will create conver-
sations between children
and their parents. It
reminds people of those
young people we have
lost over the years. There
are teenagers' names on
the tree, as well as those
in their 30s.
"By letting our youth
know the reality of the
damage drug abuse
causes, maybe we can
stop it at the root easier
than trying to undo a
problem that seems to
be unstoppable once it's
started," he said.
Longtime resident
Nellie Milano recently
visited the "Tree of Life."
She cried as she touched
the bronze heart with her
sonVinny's name on it.

"The Tree of Life If It Saves
One Life" is on display at
Tri-County Counseling, and
is available to be loaned out
to local churches and other
groups who want to increase
awareness about drug and
alcohol addiction.
"He died in October of
2012," she said. "I miss
him every day. It's so
hard for me. I hope this
tree brings healing. It's
not easy when you lose a
child."

Sarasota County delays action on pet ordinance


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

After listening to more
than two hours of public
comment on both sides
of a proposed ordinance
that would ban the sale
of commercially bred
dogs, cats and rabbits
in pet stores in Sarasota
County, commissioners
recently pushed back
any action on the
ordinance for 60 days
to get clarification from
legal staff.
In early December,
more than 200 people
packed the commission
chambers at the Robert L.
Anderson Administration
Center in South Venice -
including a large group of
citizens opposed to the


ordinance who arrived
on a charter bus from
Sarasota.
Nearly 60 people, from
concerned citizens to
veterinarians to nearly
an entire staff of one of
the stores that would be
affected by the ordinance,
signed up to speak during
public comment.
Presentations includ-
ed graphic photos of
conditions at "puppy
mills," where speakers
allege that the four
retail establishments
in the county that sell
puppies or kittens buy
the animals they sell in
stores. These include
Petland, on Fruitville
Road near Interstate
75 in Sarasota; Top
Dog Pets & Grooming,


located in the Gulf Gate
area; and Puppies R Us,
opened recently on South
Tamiami Trail, south of
the Sarasota city limits.
An additional location,
Puppy Town, located on
Tamiami Trail, is within
the city of Sarasota.
Petland owner Cathy
Harper, who had nearly
her entire staff speak,
denied getting puppies
from a mill. She said
her staff regularly visits
breeders and felt hon-
ored to know where the
store's puppies come
from after visiting the
homes. Petland corporate
also visits breeders and
providers, and discon-
tinues any business with
any breeder who is found
with violations, she said.


"We love animals and
we want to send happy,
healthy pets to forever
homes," Harper said.
"Our puppies come
from USDA licensed and
respected breeders and
providers with no direct
violations. Many of our
pups are AKC, which
means they're inspected
by the American Kennel
Club as part of their
program. We use good
breeders who take care of
their dogs."
Puppy Town owner
William Rowland said
the ordinance takes away
the rights of the people
to purchase the animals
where they choose.
"There's no need for
an ordinance that closes
businesses and doesn't


even address the prob-
lem," he said. "Puppy
Town does not support
puppy mills or bad
breeders."
Commissioners were
torn about moving
forward to advertise a
public hearing where
the ordinance would
be adopted. County
Attorney Steve DeMarsh
said he had concerns
over some of the con-
tracts that businesses
may have with pro-
viders, meaning the
ordinance could come
under fire from the
state's commerce clause
that regulates business.
"We have to ad-
dress this commerce
clause first," County
Commissioner Joe


Barbetta said. "It seems
like we're singling out
four businesses and
we haven't gotten any
groundswell of com-
plaints on those to my
knowledge, so it seems
like we'd be passing an
ordinance that would
shut down retail opera-
tions when we could find
another way to address
this issue. This is obvious-
ly a major issue, and the
state Legislature should
be all over it."
The commission voted
unanimously to have
DeMarsh conduct a legal
review of the ordinance.
It will return to the board
as a discussion item
within the next couple of
months.

Hop on for a theatrical


'Carousel' ride


FROM THE PLAYERS THEATRE

The Players Theatre
continues the song and
dance of a successful 84th
season with a new pro-
duction of the immortal
musical "Carousel." The
show runs on The Players
main stage Thursday, Jan. 9
through Jan. 19 with shows
every day except Monday
and Friday.
"Carousel" includes the
well-known songs "If I
Loved You," "June Is Bustin'
Out All Over" and "You'll
Never Walk Alone."
Set in a late 19th century
Maine coastal village, the
carefree carnival barker
Billy Bigelow captivates
and marries naive mill
worker Julie Jordan. Billy
loses his job just as he
learns that Julie is pregnant
and, desperate to provide
a decent life for his family,
becomes an accomplice
to a robbery. Caught in the
act and facing the certainty
of prison, he takes his own
life and is sent "up there."
Billy is allowed to return
to earth for one day 15
years later and encounters
the daughter he never
knew. She is a lonely,


friendless teenager, her fa-
ther's reputation as a thief
and bully having haunted
her throughout childhood.
The manner in which Billy
instills a sense of hope
and dignity in both the
child and her mother is a
dramatic testimony to the
power of love.
It's easy to understand
why "Carousel" was
Rodgers & Hammerstein's
personal favorite. Love,
loyalty, forgiveness and
faith are the abiding
themes given to his child
and the audience.
Featured players are
William Masuck (Billy
Bigelow), Kathryn Parks
(Julie Jordan), Nikki
Maack Shuster (Carrie
Pipperidge), Sharon
Ohrenstein (Nettie Fowler)
and Ian Cicco (Enoch
Snow). "Carousel" also
boasts a talented ensem-
ble of local performers, a
hallmark of The Players
Theatre productions.
Berry Ayers directs and
choreographs the show;
Joyce Valentine con-
ducts the instrumental
ensemble.
Ayers shares his take
on the classic story: "So,


I delved into the script
thinking, 'Rodgers &
Hammerstein = light fun.'
Instead, what I found was
a nuanced, touching and
timeless tale of love and
choices. I knew that I had
to tell this story simply and
truthfully and be true to
the heart of its creators;
including the incredible
Agnes De Mille. This is not
a show where I ask you to
sit back and watch, I hope
you end up on the edge
of your seat, completely
involved, with a possible
tear or two in your eyes."
Voted "Best Musical of
the 20th Century" by Time
magazine, "Carousel"
offers a ride full of ups and
downs, with the singing,
dancing and drama that
can only come from
the duo of Rodgers &
Hammerstein.
Tickets are $30 for pre-
mium seating (rows A-E)
and $25 for all others.
Groups of 10 or more
receive special discount
pricing. Tickets can be
purchased in advance
at ThePlayers.org or by
calling 941-365-2494. The
theater is at 848 North
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.


Ninth annual Vitale Gala planned


FROM THE V FOUNDATION

The ninth annual Dick
Vitale Gala will be held
Friday, May 16, at the
Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota,
hosted byV Foundation
for Cancer Research, a
leading cancer research
funding organization.
The Gala is hosted
by ESPN's Hall of Fame
Sportscaster DickVitale,
University of Alabama
Football Coach Nick
Saban, University of
Notre Dame Basketball
Coach Mike Brey and
University of Indiana
Basketball Coach Tom
Crean. Net proceeds will

research and related
programs through The V
Foundation.
"I am so touched
by all of the sports
celebrities who donate
their time to assist us in
striving to make Jimmy
V's dream a reality,"
Vitale said. "We all
must unite to battle
this dreaded disease. In
Jimmy's famous ESPY
speech, he mentioned
that during every day
we should all think and
be filled with enough
emotion to make us
laugh and cry. I am
sure we will not let
Jimmy down as we once
again experience the


electricity of the eve-
ning and join together
at this fantastic event."
The DickVitale Gala
has raised over $10
million since the event
began in 2006. The Gala
routinely draws many
sports and entertain-
ment celebrities to
Sarasota, including
several NCAA men's
basketball coaches.
"The DickVitale
Gala is an amazing
event," said Susan
Braun, CEO of The
V Foundation. "It is
lively and entertaining,
and also poignant and
meaningful. Helping
fight children's cancer is
a passion for Dick and
Lorraine Vitale, and it is
important and inspired
work. We are honored
by the generosity that
everyone shows The V
Foundation."
A cocktail hour will be
at 6:30 p.m., followed by
after-party entertain-
ment by the world fa-
mous Four Tops. Tickets
for the Gala start at
$1,000 with sponsorship
opportunities available
starting at $12,500. A
raffle drawing for "The V
Edition" 2014 Mercedes
Benz CLA250C will
take place at the Gala.
Tickets for the raffle are

Do You Hear, but not Understand?

You May Have Hearing Loss....

or Maybe it's just WAX....

We Can Find Out!







Never put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear.
Even this X-Large cotton swab is too small to put in your ear. Your ears are
actually self-cleaning! Using a cotton swab to clean your ear pushes wax
deeper into the ear canal and can create a blockage. Wax blockage is
one of the most common causes of hearing loss, and we have
an easy and painless way to check your ears. We'll use a miniatur-
ized camera to do a complete inspection of your ear canal and ear drum to
see if there's a wax blockage problem. Please call today to make an
appointment for your FREE Ear Canal Inspection!

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:
SA865 J The bidding:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1 0 Pass 1NT 2V
9
What call would you make?

A It is very unusual, after opening
one diamond, to re-bid in clubs
holding only 4-4 length in the two
suits. This is an unusual case.
Partner's response denied a four-card
major, therefore, he must have a four-
card or longer minor. Bid three clubs!
Partner will never give you a
preference back to diamonds with
only three-card diamond support.
Q 2 East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:
AVoidVKJ60 AJ10724AK974

The bidding:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 26 Pass Pass
What call would you make?

A Playing negative doubles, as
many do these days, partner's pass
may not denote weakness. He might
have a good hand with spade
strength. For this reason, you must
keep the bidding open whenever you
are short in the opponent's suit. You
should choose to double if your hand
can stand a penalty pass by partner.
Your aces and kings will contribute
plenty to the defense. Double!
Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
*Q43 1AJ54Q 24AKJ76
The bidding:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
Pass 146 Pass FI
Pass ?
What call would you make?
A It is tempting to force to game,
but should partner have soft values in
diamonds, the hand might play
poorly. Bid three hearts, invitational.


Q 4 East-West vulnerable, as South.
you hold:
*AKJ843YK1054Q Void*KQ8
The bidding:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 1NT Pass
?
What call would you make?
A Resist any temptation to bid three
spades. Partner might have short
spades with four or more hearts and
an easy game, or more, could be
missed. Bid two hearts. You can bid
three spades next if you get another
chance.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
6 A 87654 AK9646 A K 2

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

A Resisting temptation seems to be
our theme this week. Should you bid
three diamonds, partner might well
have to give preference back to hearts
with only two-card support! You
would have to bid three no trump
with few tricks. Bid two diamonds.
Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:
* Q 9 A K J 3 <0 K98410963
East opens one spade. What call
would you make?
A Double. You have minimal, but
acceptable, values for this bid.
Although four hearts are not
promised by your double, it is good
to have four when you double light.

Carol Brown and Ann Blasko were the first in line to purchase
their turtles at the Venice Art Center.


The greatest benefit of
being the social columnist
for the Venice Gondolier Sun
is meeting people. I recently
sat with Adele Stoffers at her
100th birthday party at Village
on the Isle for about an hour.
I enjoyed a second piece of
birthday cake with its luscious
whipped cream frosting.

Holiday Luncheon.
The tree was one of
the silent auction
items.


As retired teachers, we
reminisced about former
students. When I decided to
leave, I thanked Adele for
inviting me to her party and
started to walk away. As I did,
I heard Adele say, "Who was
that lady? She was very nice
but who was she?" We all had
a good laugh. I came right
back and introduced myself.
Obviously, Adele didn't want
any party crashers at her
100th.

One of our best
The special person of this
week is David Yarzab. This
nice man was the general
manager of the Venice Yacht
Club and had the rare gift of
making everyone who came
to the Club feel like a guest.
Thanks to David's warm
smile and friendly greeting,
everyone felt welcome.
In spite of how busy he
was managing club business,
David always had time to
make sure this columnist


had all the information she
needed in covering an event.
He was always a gracious
host asking if I wanted a
drink. Since I had my ampu-
tation, he was often at my
side holding my plate at the
buffet even when I assured
him I was fine. "I know," he'd
say.
Like everyone else who
knew David, my heart is
broken at his passing. This
community and this colum-
nist have lost a gentle friend.
Rest in peace, David.

in.. one word.. at festival


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

An American Craft Endeavors festival, which is
part of Howard Alan Events, is a different kind of
experience for the attendees.
At this weekend's 17th Annual Sullivan Street Craft
Festival in Punta Gorda, more than 100 crafters from
all over the country will be lining the street to present
their creations. The show contains many Florida-
based artists, and is always a highly attended event.
Megan McMahan, who works in operations for
Howard Alan Events, explained that the reason for
the public's continued interest is because their craft
shows offer a little something extra.
"For our art shows, the crafters have to hand-make
everything themselves," she said. "And they have to
appear at the show. At every booth, the crafter will be
there presenting their original work."
What that practice does is make the consumer's
purchasing process so much more personal. You want
to learn about a crafter's techniques or ask him or
her questions about their inspiration when creating
a particular piece? The artist who actually crafted the
item will be right there to talk to you, and even to
demonstrate how they work.
A wide selection of crafts will be presented at the

from $15 handmade silver jewelry, to life-sized
sculptures with prices in excess of $50,000. Each artist
and crafter is selected by Howard Alan Events through
the most discerning jury process, which McMahan
says ensures onlythe finest exhibits.
"We have brought in a lot of national artists, but
there are also many Florida-based artists," she said.
"This has been a very popular craft festival for us
over the years."
Since its inception, the Sullivan Street Craft
Festival has continued to grow and highlight the
talents of many unique crafters, providing the Punta
Gorda area with one of its most enjoyable traditions.
From jewelry, handbags and stained glass to organic

In 1'":4 Crai, and Lea Culver alone vwilth Craig
parent; G:eorge anid lhith, opened ithe very fir;tl
Culver's in the family's hometown of Sauk City, Wis.
Since the initial Culver's franchise was opened in
1990, the company has expanded to more than
450 family-owned restaurants across
19 states and it is still growing.
The reason forthe rapid expansion is simple -
people love Culver's. Steve Buchmeier, who is the
operating partner of the new Port Charlotte franchise,
which just opened up on Dec. 9,2013, says fans of the
restaurant seek it out wherever they travel.
"Since the first day Culver's was started in
1984, it has been brought up on the ingredients
of fresh, quality food," he said. "When you come
in, your food doesn't start cooking until you place
your order."
Buchmeier describes the theme of the
restaurant as "fast, casual,"
but tihouqh yOu do q aelt

Our BulltterBurger is made with
fresh beef, which has never been frozen,"
Buchmeier said. "It's called the 'ButterBurger'
because the roll is lightly buttered and toasted.
The other staple of our menu would have to be our
fresh, frozen custard each day, we have vanilla,
chocolate and the 'flavor of the day.'"
The"flavor of the day" could be anything from
Chunky Peanut Butter Dream to Chocolate Caramel
Twist, and it is made daily in the restaurant. The
possibilities of what it could be each day are
practically limitless there are currently
95 flavors on the list. In the lobby of the restaurant
is a cooler that holds about two dozen different
flavors in pint containers to take home.
In addition to the burgers, there are melts and
sandwiches, soups and
Salads, and

even dinner items like fried chicken, chop steak, pot
roast, butterfly shrimp and North Atlantic cod. And
what would a Wisconsin-based restaurant chain be
without Wisconsin Cheese Curds on the menu?
For the uninitiated, Buchmeier explained that
cheese curds, a uniquely Wisconsin delicacy, are formed
as a by-product of the cheese-making process.


rThis
is just
one of many
burgers Culver's offers.
Visit www.culvers.com
for more on their menu.


"In the cheese-making process, what's left inside
the vat is scraped into little balls of white and
cheddar cheese," he said. "Then we lightly bread it
and fry it."
Though Culver's doesn't offer a breakfast
menu, they are open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.,
seven days a week. Buchmeier said that so far, he
has been very pleased with the Port Charlotte
(o:nimunity's embracing of some of
the best food items the dairy state
ha ;to offer.
We've stayed really busy, and it's
exceeded our expectations," he
said. "We have something for
everyone here, and we're much
more than just a burger joint."

'A Tribute to Broadway' returns


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Cultural Center of Charlotte County was created
to enrich the lives of Charlotte County residents and
visitors by offering educational, recreational, and
social and fitness activities.
With an eight-acre campus, featuring a 500+seat
theater and a 7,200 square foot conference center,
they can accommodate seminars, banquets and
gatherings of any size for the local community. But
it takes funds for maintain a facility of this size, and
the Center relies on volunteers, donations and the
support of their neighbors to thrive.
One of the primary fundraisers of the year is the
annual show presented by Cul-Cen Productions, a compa-
nythat is made up of a group of dedicated and talented
volunteers. This year's show, running at 7 p.m. forthree
days, Jan. 16-18, is entitled "A Tribute to Broadway II,"
and musical director Jim Reuter says this production
promises to be just as popular as the previous one.

"Cul-Cen was started about 30 years ago, as a
means to raise funds for the Cultural Center," he said.
"Last year, we had three shows and we sold out every
concert."
The 2014 "Tribute to Broadway" will include
numbers from "Fiddler on the Roof," "The Wizard of
Oz" and "Grease." Reuter said that because of the age


of most of the Cul-Cen performers, some
of song lyrics from "Grease," which is abo it a Qr:oup
of high school friends, have been changed aro:unrid
just a bit.
"In our production, this is the 35th reunion of:r
Riddell High School," he said. "We're doing four ;oriq,
from 'Grease' with different dialogue."

GROl THINGS TO DO


Roller Derby is more than a show


El '. January 8 14,2014


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Remember that Roller Derby show you used to
watch on TV in the 70s? Sorry to break it to you -
that wasn't real.
Much like "professional" wrestling was back in the
day, the stunts on that show were all scripted, even
though the actors in both shows were undeniably
athletes.
Todaythere are still roller derby teams around, but
these are genuine. When the "bouts" are held, bones
could be broken and blood may be spilled, but if you ask
any of the competitors, they will tell you it is all worth it.
The North River Rolling Renegades is a Sarasota/
Manatee-based team that competes all around the
state of Florida. Jamie Tyler, known on the team as
"Con EB Good/says that they just completed their
first full season.

"We had 10 bouts last season, between February
and September," she said. "We have two nights a
week practice, and occasionally, we do a trail skate
outdoors for endurance. That's whythis is a good way
to maintain physical fitness."
Connie "K-Oss" lachetta says that the basic rules of
a roller derby bout are pretty simple there are five
women on each team.
"You have four blockers and one jammer per
team," she said. "The object of the sport is for the
blockers not to let the jammers score. The jammers
get a point per skater that they pass, and there are
two halves, each lasting 30 minutes."
On this level, roller derby skaters do not get paid, so
these women do it for the love of the sport. That also
means that most of them have actual careers outside
of the roller rink. Besides the names of the skaters -
Trace Evidence, Ima Problem, Evel Diva, Nikki Stric-9
and more one of the most fascinating aspects of
this team is the double life that many of them lead.
When they're not banging on the track, Rockabilly
Red is a dual-enrollment coordinator at State College
of Florida and Con EB Good is an attorney. But when
they're with the team, they are sisters.
"I love the girls,"Tyler said. "I1 grew up in Pensacola
and when I moved here, I didn't really know anyone,
and my mom also did this when I was younger. It's
great to have this fitness outlet."
lachetta is pretty quiet when she's off the track,
but once she laces up those skates, it's game on.
"For me, it brings out another side of me," she
said. "I don't like crowds, but when I'm here, I don't
mind it. This is a sisterhood we're all very close."

Crosswords, romance, and a battle of wits in '2 Across'


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

If you're a fan of witty dialogue and romantic
comedy, you'll want to join Janet and Josh on the
Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), an 80-minute ride
from San Francisco's International Airport to their
last stop in East Bay.
"2 Across," by Jerry Mayer, will be performed
from Jan. 10-18 at the Charlotte Players Langdon
Playhouse.
Mayer, a Playwright and TV script writer ("All in
the Family" and "The Facts of Life") writes about
real people building relationships while solving


life's puzzles. Janet, an uptight, mace-packing
psychologist, is less than thrilled when Josh, an
unkempt, free-spirited out-of-work actor, boards
late and asks her to move from his "lucky seat."
He's Jewish; she's Catholic. Both use entirely
different strategies when solving New York Times
crossword puzzles. They're unlikely to be headed for
romance or are they?
New Zealand-born Artistic Director, lan Bisset,
has worked as a Port Charlotte Players' stage
manager, actor, and director for more than 10 years.
In 2013 he directed the radio play "It's a Wonderful
Life" and acted as Butch in "Leading Ladies."
"After reading the first 10 pages of"2 Across,";'


I fell in love with the play," said Bisset. "I love that
it's all about conversation and that both characters
are outspoken. One is afraid of making mistakes,
while the other is not afraid to take chances. The
fact that the action takes place on a train makes
perfect sense."
Bisset both directs and acts as Josh in "2 Across."
Jenni Elliott, who plays Janet, recently relocated to
Port Charlotte from Australia. Australians and New
Zealanders often disagree, and when Elliott audi-
tioned for the part of Janet, Bisset, good-naturedly
reminded her that she was lucky to get the part.
Elliott and Bisset act as antagonists who become
possible lovers in the play.
A former Director of Marketing in Australia,
Elliott is no stranger to the stage. She's acted in
community theaters in Australia and was thrilled to
discover the nearby Port Charlotte Players, Venice
Theater, and Lemon Bay Playhouse.


"My husband and I moved to Port Charlotte
for the golf," she explained, "and we never
expected to find so many community theaters and
orchestras here."
Elliott's husband, Rick Stannard, recently joined
the Venice Concert Band as a trombonist.
The Langdon Playhouse is located in the
Charlotte Players Community Theater Center,
1182 Market Circle, Port Charlotte. "2 Acrossfa
comedy of crosswords and romance, is playing at
7:30 p.m., Jan. 10-11 and Jan. 16-18, and at 2 p.m.
on Sunday, Jan. 12. Adult tickets cost $15. Student
tickets are $8. Tickets are available online at www.
CharlottePlayers.org or by phone at 941-625-4175,
ext. 220.
Future plays at the Langdon Playhouse include
"Same Time Next Year" by Bernard Slade on Feb. 7-9
and Feb. 13-15; and "Drinking Habits" by Tom Smith
on April 3-5 and April 10-12.

music were sent to their northern homes so they
could practice on their own before they came back
to Charlotte County. Videotapes demonstrating the
show's choreography were even made and sent to
the performers.
By the time Fall came around, and everyone was
back together again, the frequency of the rehearsals
was increased.
"I think they (the performers) do an awesome job
with it," Reuter said. "It's really a big commitment, and
the drummer, and guitar, bass and saxophone players,
have to be at practice just as much as the singers."

that friendship built."
"This is a group of volunteers that comes out here,"
he said. "They range in age from 14to somewhere in

PROVIDED BY THE
SOUTH COUNTY JAZZ CLUB
The Jim Wellen Quintet, with special guest
Chris Brown, salutes the music of legendary jazz
singer Lee Wiley with a concert from 2 p.m. to
4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Venice Art
Center, 390 Nokomis Ave., Venice. Presented
by the South County Jazz Club, admission to
the concert is $5 for members and $10 for
non-members.
Tenor sax player Wellen and vocalist Brown
will be accompanied by Dick Reynolds on piano,
Dave Trefethen, bass, and Johnny Moore, drums.
One of the great jazz vocalists of all time, Lee
Wiley performed through the'40s,'50s and '60s.
She did prodigious recordings of standards by
George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rogers & Hart
and others.
She interpreted them in her uniquely intimate
way, invariably backed by small combos of
first-rate musicians, such as Bud Freeman, Fats
Waller, Billy Butterfield and her two RCA albums,
"West of the Moon"(1956) and"A Touch of Blues"
(1957), are standouts. Lee Wiley effectively
stepped out of the limelight in the 1960s, except
for a brief appearance at the 1972 New York Jazz
Festival. She merited greater fame than was
accorded her in her lifetime and since.

Your trash is artist's treasure


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Installation art is becoming synonymous with the
Sarasota Museum of Art/SMOA, a division of Ringling
College of Art and Design.
Following on the heels of the museum's street-side
installation of a fantasy castle of twigs by Irish artist
Patrick Dougherty, will be a colorful creation by Lisa
Hoke inside the historic Sarasota High School on
U.S. 41, just south of the intersection of Mound
(U.S. 41) and U.S. 301.
Area residents were invited to drop off their
colorful cereal boxes, cardboard beverage containers,
gilded gift boxes, produce boxes and more this fall
for Hoke to use in her current installation in the old
school building with strange blue window coverings.
Except for the windows and the twig castle in
its front yard, the high school looks like so many
1920s-era high schools that dotted the country from
Pennsylvania and Ohio to Missouri and even in
this case Florida.
Hoke, who lives in New York City, has become
known for her monumental works made entirely

"We're reinventing a historic structure that's
central to the experience Sarasotans have of their
community,";' Sturkis said in the release. "At the same
time, we're connecting Sarasota with the larger arts
community around the nation. The ARTmuse program
attracts world-renowned artists and is helping to put
us on the art world map while we are a museum in
the making. It's very exciting'."
The colorful installation will be open for viewing
Jan. 15 through Feb. 5 at the museum, which will be
the city's"first art museum devoted to modern and


contemporary art."
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places,
the building will offer some 60,000 square feet of
exhibition space, a 110-seat auditorium, sculpture
court, cafe, classrooms and studios. Of the $22
million needed for the museum conversion, nearly
$17 million is in hand, according to a recent release.
The Ringling College of Art and Design is one of
the country's leading art schools, offering bachelor
degrees in fine arts and a BA in the business of art
and design.
Hoke's installation work offers the public good
opportunityfora glimpse of what will come. For

By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Joy Welling, lead vocalist for "Joy and the Gang"
loves singing, dancing, and above all, interacting with
her fans.
Her Gang
consists of four
accomplished
musicians
and their very
supportive wives.
"We are like
family. Mike
Hovencamp,
Jerry Kecken,
Don Reichert,
and Eric Stockley
and I love
performing -
and not just for
our own egos,"
she explains with
an impish grin.
"If you combine
all our years
of performing,
you'll have
a pot full.
Classic Country,
Motown, or rock
'n'roll-we do
it all."

presence.

Rhythm guitarist/vocalist, Don, played in garage
bands as a youngster before becoming employed in
the New Jersey
Green Street

He's the clown
of the act whose
antics keep
J audiences in
stitches. Don's
wife, Annette,
keeps track of
pictures and arti-
cles in the Gang's
scrapbook.
Bass guitarist
and banjo
player, Eric, works
for the Port

immediate audience.
"We don't have a signature song,"
said Joy. "We like to interact with the


audience and each other, and no two
performances are ever the same."
Joy, often labeled a "blonde
energizer bunny," encourages audience
participation.
"I use a cordless mike and sing and
dance with fans during a show. During


Brothers back for a month-long stand this
March in NewYork.
Going over these highlights, all I said
was,"They sure are keeping you busy."
That's when Gregg took the opportunity
to set me straight.
"These days, when you say'they'you
mean'me,'" he said, in kind of a low growl
that actually sounded kind of bluesy over
the phone. A little like John Lee Hooker.
At this point in his career, Allman
insists on calling the shots. At 65, with
nearly 50 years in the business, he figures
he's earned it.
That's consistent with the thoughts he
put down in his 2012 autobiography,"My
Cross to Bear,"which is the basis forthe
upcoming movie. The book covers Allman's
life, his early bands, the formation and rise
.f the Allman Brothers Band, the death of
hi brotr:her Duane, the rock superstardom
of the 1']Os, his marriage to Cher (and
o:n,oe :,hers), the rough trip through
the I',:: his battles with narcotics and
al,:ohol the renewed success of the Allman
Brother; Band, his complex relationship
vvith one o :f its founding members Dickey
Bets his children, and the health problems
that riearIy killed him.
uregl account of it is all there, and
taI.iri control of his life is a big part of
,hat; h enabled him to keep going.
"That's the way everyone wants
it at first, but it doesn't happen
that way,";' he explained.
"After a while, you get
control, that's the way it
should be."
Now, he's got a good lineup
with the Allman Brothers Band,


special dance events, contestants compete
in twist and conga competitions. People
need to get awayfrom their troubles to
relax and enjoy themselves, and our music
allows them to let the world go away, even
if it's just for a little while," she said.

GREGG ALLMAN'S YEAR
All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs and Voice of Gregg Allman, Friday at
the Fox Theater, Atlanta, Ga. Jackson Browne, Vince Gill, Widespread Panic See the

Midnight Rider: The Gregg Allman Story. A feature film based on "My Cross to Bear"
by Greg Allman and Alan Light (William Morrow, 2012), now being shot at Savannah

actor, has been cast as young Gregg and Wyatt Russell as Duane. Google their photos

AlIlman Brothers Band at the Beacon. Celebrating their 45th anniversary, the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band will play 10 shows beginning March 7 during their
annual residency at the Beacon Theater in NewYork City. Expect lots of guest stars. The
group will also release two live albums and a DVD in 2014, according to Rolling Stone.


which gathers every year for a month of
shows in New York, a few other dates and a
couple of camp-out festivals, including the
popular Wanee Fest in Live Oak. The rest of
the year, Gregg plays with his own hand-
picked band and jams with old friends
when the opportunity presents itself.
One of those times will come this week,
when guys like Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal,
Dr. John, Trace Adkins and many others
gather at the Fox Theater for a tribute. The
AlIlman Brothers Band will also perform.This
is something Gregg didn't plan himself.
"A bunch of my buds got together and
dreamed it up, I guess,"Allman said of the
show. "It should be a good one."
He said he wants to do an album of
all-original songs this year, and recently
wrote a song with saxophonist Mindi
Abair for her upcoming album. He talked
about getting readyto record another
album with producer T-Bone Burnett, the
"other half"of his 2011 hit record Low
Country, a collection of blues classics.
"We were going to do that in
December, but I have so damn much on
my plate ..."he said.


include "Blue Suede Shoes,""Under the
Boardwalk," and "Girls Just Want to
Have Fun."
Upcoming performances for Joy
and the Gang are on their website.
From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Friday,
Jan. 10, they'll be at the Moose Lodge


The Gregg Allman Band consists of Scott
Sharrard, guitar; Ben Stivers, keyboards;
Steve Potts, drums; Jay Collins, horns; Ron
Johnson, bass; Marc Quinones, percussion.
He loves his home in Savannah, but
he was looking forward to coming to
Sarasota.
"I have a lot of good friends there. It's
good to get back and play for them,";' he
said. "I like to fish there's good fishing
there, also."
That sounds cool. I wouldn't mind go-
ing out looking for some snook or redfish
with Gregg Allman. I guess if Gregg wants
to load up his plate, that's what he's going
to do. If he wants to go fishing, well he's
earned that, too.
At the time of press, there was "a
slim chance that last minute tickets will
be available." Check for last-minute
ticket releases at circussarasota.org or call
941-355-9805.
The showtime is 7 p.m. today (Jan. 8)
at Sailor Circus Arena, 2075 Bahia Vista St.,
Sarasota. Tickets range from $35 to $45.
Opening acts include Devon Allman Band
and the Greg Billings Band.

Property management is not just collecting rent.
If you are trying to sell your property and in the current
market you are not able to sell for the price you need at
this time, perhaps you should consider renting! You may
be able to cover your costs and perhaps even make a
profit! If you are interested in learning more about our

Rose Good morning, Gondolier Sun subscriber Dennis Diemand A NEW LEASH ON LIFEFortunate felinesPage 1B January 8-10, 2014 Vol. 68 No. 73 An edition of the Sun Three South Venice residents have been arrested and nearly a dozen more are being investigated in connection with six residential burglaries in which tens of thousands of dollars worth of property including Christmas presents was stolen, announced the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. One victim, Debbie Maddox, had just nished up her Christmas shopping and went to Texas prior to the holiday. When she returned home, she found her home was ransacked and all the presents were missing. It turns out her house was cased. She remembered the young neighbor she caught looking into her window before she left town. I came out and asked her what she was doing? She said she was my neighbor and wanted to borrow some butter. I let the Big Bad Wolf in, Maddox said. That big smile and spider tattoo haunts me every night. Later, Maddox would learn the same woman, who has not been arrested, tried the same ruse on other neighbors, but they refused entry. Some folks would have crumbled under despair. Not the Maddoxs. She and her husband Kevin shifted into high gear and started visiting all the pawn shops in the area. After all, she witnessed the thieves placing her belongings into their vehicles to make a getaway. In the end, she found some of her belongings, even though she had to pay to get them back. The burglaries occurred in residences on Gentian Road, South Venice Boulevard, Papaya Road, Lemon Bay Grinches who stole Christmas are arrestedBy GREG GILESSTAFF REPORT PHOTO COURTESY OF THE SCSOJewelry recovered by the Sarasota County Sheris Oce during its investigation of six Venice-area home burglaries in December. MOORE MEYERS JOHNSONGRINCHES | 4 Reopening the South County Holding Facility is worth considering. Thats the general consensus of a joint Venice City Council and North Port City Commission discussion that took place this week. Venice Mayor John Holic raised the idea, saying perhaps North Port and Venice might pitch in to keep it going in some capacity. The jail, which adjoins the Venice Police Department facility, was shuttered as of Jan. 1 one of a few budget saving moves by Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight. Knight previously said arrests in South County were down and cited the lack of medical and food services at the facility, along with the inability to process juvenile and transgender offenders. Knight said the savings could add up to over $1 million annually. But it will add to municipal expenses, authorities say. Venice Police Chief Tom McNulty said theres no doubt his department will feel an impact from the closure. Hes working on an estimate of how much it will cost the city, if anything, to add staff to redirect detainees to the Sarasota County Jail. An early estimate is it could add another $100,000 to the city budget in transportation and other costs. North Ports police department is considerably larger and presumably will add even more to its budget. Between the two municipalities, Holic said, the facility could be re-opened, if only for high volume days or weekends when crime is higher.Venice jail not a dead ideaBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORJAIL | 5 Venice has one of only 12 food service establishments in the Sunshine State recognized during recent inspections by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation for having no safety or sanita tion violations within the past year. Michael Elden, co-owner of Bonnells Boutique & Winery, 101 West Venice Ave., Suite 13, received a letter from Florida Gov. Rick Scott commending him for demonstrating such a high level of attention to detail and commitment to excellence. I am very happy because it is pretty difcult not to get a violation, Elden said. The state regulates us twice a year. Bonnells, operated by Elden and co-owner Lisa Terraglia, was opened on West Miami Avenue six years ago. lden moved to the 300 block of West Venice Avenue for four years before occupying the present location in the 100 Block in 2011. They have recently acquired an additional unit but have made no decision at this stage as to what they have planned. In the store, they have a large selection of wines and beers that they serve by the glass to customers who can relax at the bar. Food items including cheese and crackers, pate, fruit plates and homemade items to complement wines are available from 10 a.m. to close at 9 p.m. Regulating more than one million Florida businesses and professionals is the role of The Division of Hotels and Restaurants. They work to protect the health and safety of the public by providing the industry with inspections and regulation. The Divisions main priority is to ensure that food is stored, prepared and served safely for the enjoyment of Floridians and guests.

Rick Scott. Sarasota County families who cannot afford nutritious food will soon be able to enjoy fresh, seasonal produce as a result of a new custom-made mobile farmers market available through All Faiths Food Bank. The organization introduced Sprout mobile farm market at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday evening at the Venice Yacht Club. Laura Coyle, director of mar keting at All Faiths Food Bank, said it is the rst of its kind in the area and is projected to deliver 64,000 pounds of fresh produce in 2014 to people in need throughout the county. This product is a result of two years in the making, and we are very proud to be able to offer this kind service to those who need it, Coyle said. The produce on the truck will be distributed through a free voucher system for clients of All Faiths Food Banks network of more than 100 partner pantries, soup kitchens, churches and community centers. Everything within the unit is going to cost one dollar (voucher). It might be three or four tomatoes in a bag or one large squash, but it will speed up things having everything the same price, said Scott Malcom, corporate ofce executive for All Faiths Food Bank. We want to be able to move as quickly as possible from one site to the next. The pilot program is planned to begin on Jan. 20. The unit will stop at six different sites. The locations were chosen based on the amount of volunteers at the agency, parking availability and consumer need. Locations include three housing and urban development sites in Sarasota, St. Nathaniels Church in North Port, Salvation Army in North Port and The Community Assistance Ministry through Trinity Presbyterian Church in Venice. We are going to try the program for eight weeks and collect data as we go to see where our efforts should be focused after that, Malcom said. We wanted to keep our focus tight initially so as we expand we will better be able to dene the expectations of the agencies and broaden our spectrum. Michael Nemser, chair of the Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation, facilitated the event. We wanted the VYC charitable foundation to participate in a program that will make a meaningful difference in the community, Nemser said. As a foundation, we are proud to supply the seed money for this project. Director of Community Investment for Gulf Coast Community Foundation Jon Thaxton said the idea became a priority after learning that more than 50 percent of the students in Sarasota County Schools qualied for free or reduced lunches. The destination of this truck is curing the hunger problems that exist in Sarasota County, Thaxton said. Tony Zumbano, commodore of the club, asked the crowd for a moment of silence to reect upon the recent death of David Yarzab. Yarzab was the general manager of the yacht club and died on Jan. 1 in a motor cycle accident. David was a big supporter of our foundation and would have been very proud to be here today, Zumbano said.Food brought to areas where need existsBy SUSAN ERWINGUEST WRITERA Mobile Farmers Market PHOTOS BY SUSAN ERWINMichael Nemser, chair of the Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation, facilitates the ribbon-cutting of All Faiths Food Banks custom-made truck that will deliver fresh produce to local families in need.

At a joint meeting between the elected leaders of North Port and Venice, the North Port City Commission agreed to study further the idea of paying for a portion of the Sheriffs Ofce budget by installing a MSTU, or Municipal Services Taxing Unit. A citizens law enforcement class given through the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce had an un intended consequence. Holic was looking at a map of the 19 districts patrolled by sheriffs deputies and realized that North Port, Venice and the city of Sarasota didnt gure into those daily patrol efforts, he said. He wondered why the municipalities were being taxed but not patrolled. It was then he wondered if it were possible for the cities, who have their own police services, to opt out of paying for a portion of the Sheriffs Ofce budget by creating a MSTU in unincorporated parts of the county where they receive full patrol services. With $40 million of the $100 million sheriffs budget going toward the jail and the court system, Holic said he would like to address the $60 million that goes toward law enforcement efforts like patrols. Holic thinks that Venice and North Port are responsible for roughly $20 million of that total and believes that a MSTU would help to offset the monies left out of the coffers by the municipalities, although Holic admitted the details havent been fully hashed out. We dont have a denable level of service we should be obtaining from our county taxes, yet we all pay identical millage to the county, Holic said. It was one of a dozen or so issues discussed Monday during a joint meeting between the North Port City Commission and Venice City Council at the Morgan Family Community Center, a meeting that was skipped by Venice council members Bob Daniels and Jeanette Gates. Gates and Daniels previously said they wouldnt attend a meeting with North Port until the next election, citing city efforts to rebuild its relationship with Sarasota County ofcials. Gates said last year that she had no interest in meeting with North Port commissioners because they often bash county commissioners. Yet, the idea of an MSTU garnered mostly positive support from both boards, although North Port Mayor Jim Blucher and Venice City Council member Jim Bennett expressed doubt. Blucher warned of a balloon effect on the SCSO budget, which, should it decrease by 20 percent, as Holic suggested, would impact the countys budget elsewhere. Anytime you lower it one place, it goes up somewhere else, Blucher added. Venice councilman Emilio Carlesimo scoffed at the idea of the socalled balloon effect, saying that Sheriff Tom Knights decision to shutter the South County Holding Facility had balloon effects on North Port and Venice, effects that both cities have yet to fully understand. (Knight) was acting in a scal manner and I didnt have any problem with that. Just like I feel were acting in a prudent scal manner, he said of the possible MSTU. If it has a balloon effect, he has to deal with it. Holic called residents of unincorporated communities like Nokomis and Laurel the real beneciaries of the services provided by the Sheriffs Ofce, and alluded to a sense of double taxation because Venice and North Port residents have chosen to live in a municipality. Were living in city limits because there are services in these cities were willing to pay for, Holic said.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comVenice, North Port discuss new taxing districtBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER Fishing Fo r A New Career?

4A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2014 Drive and Pineapple Place from Oct. 28 to Dec. 12. More than $62,000 worth of property was stolen and one home was ransacked, according to a Sheriffs Ofce press release. Authorities say the break in the burglaries came thanks to a Dec. 14 trafc stop of a vehicle driven by James Bradley Moore in which Tiffany Lee Meyers, Zachary M. Johnson and another man were riding, according to a Sheriffs Ofce press statement. As it happened, that was the same day Maddox went to a nearby gas station and asked the manager if any sil ver money or unusual coins had turned up. She identied some of the rare coins as hers and called deputies, asking the manager to keep the security video ready for law enforcement to review. That evening she and her mother witnessed the culprits at a nearby party house, taking Maddoxs belongings from their house and putting them into ve separate cars. Deputies showed up, and after 20 minutes managed to get the occupants to come to the door. They came back to Maddox with a necklace one of the women was wearing. I dont understand why they let them go and did not make them open the trunk of the car when we had just witnessed them putting our daughters Christmas present into the truck. He stated that he did not have cause. Are you kidding me? Five minutes after the deputies leave, we look from front porch and see eight kids come running out of the house. I see them with my suitcase, my pillow case swinging in the air with gifts in it, as they are running. Im only 100 feet from them. Were running at the yard screaming at them. One has my Raggedy Ann doll. I see my husbands shotgun case. As we get to the driveway, they drive away, laughing, ipping us the bird. It was like I was watching a movie. You just cant make this stuff up, Maddox said. Moore was arrested on drug charges that same day, and items found in the vehicle were identied as stolen property from the burglary of Maddoxs home. Two days later, Johnson went to the Sheriffs Ofce to be interviewed. According to authorities, a deputy saw a suitcase in the bed of his truck that had the name of another burglary victim on it. Johnson denied knowing anything about the suitcase or the stolen property seized in the trafc stop. A search of the truck revealed more stolen items in the suitcase and in the cab of the truck. Johnson claimed ignorance about the stolen goods. In an interview the same day, Meyers told deputies that she and Johnson had taken stolen property from Moores residence and thrown it into a dumpster behind Frank Theaters in South Venice. Deputies learned that Moore had called Meyers from jail on a recorded line and instructed her to get rid of the items, which included a doll matching the ones hanging on Johnsons mirror. When Meyers was arrested, she was wearing a pair of shoes taken in one of the burglaries. She also had a key to a storage unit in her possession. The storage unit, rented to Moore, contained even more stolen property. Further investigation disclosed at least two transactions in which Meyers pawned jewelry and coins, claiming to be the lawful owner. Moore, 25, 2200 block of Woodmere Road, Venice, was charged with six counts of grand theft. Hes in jail in Manatee County accused of violating probation but will be transferred to Sarasota County to face charges there. Meyers, 26, 3000 block of Sunset Beach Drive, Venice, was charged with two counts of tampering with evidence; two counts of accessory after the fact; two counts of dealing in stolen property; and one count of providing false information to a pawn broker. Johnson, 20, 3000 block of Sunset Beach Drive, Venice, was charged with two counts each of tampering with evidence, accessory after the fact and grand theft. He and Meyers are both out on bond. Since the crimes, Maddox has purchased a gun. She says she wants to feel safe about going outside in her neighbor hood again. She is a local resident with a large family in the area, who knows some of the parents of the youth involved. Shes even received Facebook threats, which law enforcement are looking into. Maddox says shes not going anywhere. Some of the neighbors are supporting her. Theyre all tired of whats going on around here, Maddox said. The neighbors have already pressured one of the Grinches to move elsewhere. In the meantime, the Maddoxs are still visiting local pawn shops, hoping to nd the stolen wedding rings that belonged to their parents and her deceased brother. Detectives are still investigating these crimes. Anyone with information regarding them should call Criminal Investigations at 941-8611719 or, to be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward, Crime Stoppers at 941-366-8477.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A William P. Sullivan, who was reported missing from his Mission Valley home on Sunday, Jan. 5, was located Tuesday in Miami. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce press statement, the Nokomis resident was at a South Florida hospital Tuesday evening being evaluated, awaiting the arrival of family members to take him home. No other information about locating him was provided. Sullivan, 83, left his home at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday to go shopping and didnt return. A Silver Alert was issued Sunday evening to solicit the publics assistance in nding him. At the time he was wearing a blue sweater, khaki pants and white shoes and was driving a 2005 red, four-door Buick Lacrosse, with Florida plate I614JE. The alert said that Sullivan has medical issues. On Monday afternoon, Sheriffs Ofce spokesperson Wendy Rose said the ofce was tracking Sullivans most recent activity and notifying other agencies around the area where he was last known to be. Information about the search was viewed more than 6,000 times on the Gondolier Suns Facebook page.Missing Nokomis man found in MiamiSTAFF REPORT SULLIVAN The holding cell is no longer being manned by the county, Holic said. That puts a strain on Venice and North Port to go all the way to Sarasota. I hope you pack a bag. Its almost a vacation for somebody to travel that far, he quipped. I would like to see us come up with a way to use an existing facility so that two municipalitys (patrols) dont have to make that long haul in the middle of the night, Holic said. How can we make it economically viable to use it for what its designed for not at their convenience but at our convenience, Holic said. Commissioner Rhonda DiFranco, retired law enforcement, agreed its worth consideration. It does put our ofcers at risk, she said, noting an ofcer transporting a detainee is one less patrolling the streets of North Port and assisting other ofcers. You do have to have certied ofcers to staff that up. You cant just have baby sitters. I would want us to work together (on that), DeFranco said. North Port Mayor Jim Blucher directed the city manager from North Port to work with his counter part in Venice on a plan. Let those guys hammer it out to see if there is something to do, he said. Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comJAILFROM PAGE 1 The Sarasota County School District dropout rate for 2012-13 improved compared to the previous year, but the graduation rate decreased slightly, according to the Florida Department of Education gures released recently. Graduation rates are calculated by comparing the number of students who start in a public high school as freshmen to the number of students in the same class who graduate four years later. The dropout rate indicates the number of students who drop out in a single year. According to Sarasota County school spokesman Scott Ferguson, federal regulations require each state to calculate a grad uation rate that includes standard diplomas but excludes both regular and adult General Educational Development certicates, and special diplomas awarded to some students with disabilities who dont meet the requirements for standard diplomas. The 2012-13 graduation rate for Sarasota County high schools is 76.2 per cent, which is higher than the state graduation rate of 75.6 percent but down from its 2011-12 graduation rate of 78 per cent. Sarasota Countys graduation rate has been consistently higher than the state percentage since 2003-04. Sarasota Schools Superintendent Lori White said that she was pleased Sarasota Countys dropout rate for the 2012-13 school year was 1.5 percent, an improvement from the 2011-12 dropout rate of 2.2 percent. Venice Highs graduation rate also went down slightly, from 74.8 percent to 73.9.

Send your news of a news business opening, an expansion, a relocation or other signicant event to rogerbutton@verizon.net.They do it all: errands, research, pet sitting, moreBy ROGER BUTTON Every year, more than 700 people die from ladder accidents. The major cause is carrying something while trying to climb the ladder. A local inventor has built and is selling a prod uct that could prevent many of those falls, stopping many fatalities. Everyone needs a Buddy Bucket when they are painting is the slogan of inventor Dan Dattilo of Nokomis. The two-piece buddy bucket is a paint bucket that ts into a holder that can be attached to the painters waist belt or held by hand. Designed with input from engineers and tradespeople, it is ergonomically styled for the users maximum accessibility, comfort and suitability. There are ttings in the holder for the user to insert screwdrivers, painters scraper, and hooks to attach cleaning cloths. The handle of the bucket is shaped to provide a comfortable and muscle relaxing grip. The idea came to Dattilo, who has a background in the construction industry and operated his own business remodeling kitchens, baths and roong of commercial and residential properties. I was on a ladder painting a ceiling when the homeowner, a lady, called me down, Dattilo said. We discussed the painting job; then I decid ed to move the ladder, forgetting the gallon of paint on the top which fell, splattered over her and the kitchen oor. Frantically, I cleaned-up the fast-drying paint on the oor while she watched, laughing at my misfortune. The incident prompted him to decide there had to be a better way of managing paint cans. Considering the existing holster holders available at hardware stores, he found they too were unstable when attached to the painters belt. He ignored his idea because he was fullling major commercial renovation contracts traveling around New Hampshire, until 2001 when he was involved in a really bad accident. A young student fell asleep while driving and hit Dattilo head-on, causing very serious injuries. It was a long recovery with no likelihood of returning to his job and business, eventually to leave him with permanent neck and back injuries. Unable to work, with a lot of free time, he recalled the incident of the falling paint can. Research indicated all the existing buckets dripped paint, a problem he resolved to overcome with a new design. Experimenting with paper and card buckets tting into various holder designs proved successful. Designing a non-drip bucket tting into a holder with a belt attachment, he consulted with engineers and painters. The next move was patents, and to save great expense, he wrote his own, a difcult process because they have to be shown to be different from all other existing patents. On average, only 3 percent of patents awarded are actually commercialized. Some two years later, he chose a Chinese manufacturer to produce the Buddy Bucket system. The plastic non-drip bucket ts into a holder that is attached securely and upright to the pants belt worn by most painters, amateur and professional. The most expensive part is the bucket, which had to be made in two parts with the edge at an angle for the paint to drip back into the bucket. Incorporated in the bucket is a strong magnet to grip the brush, holding it at an angle so the paint drips back into bucket. Fittings in the holder provide for accessories, screwdrivers, an all-pur pose tool and hooks for rag holders. Prototypes have been tested by several users, and a week ago, Dattilo received his rst 1,200 B uddy B uckets. Priced for retail at $24.95, he plans to visit all the local paint stores initially. Having lined up nancing should he get a million dollar order, he will in due course approach major hardware supermarkets. Overall, it has already cost me more than $100,000 even though I have done much of the work, and that cost does not include the product manufacture, he said. The Buddy System tooling in the U.S. would have been $40,000 so I had to take it to China where it cost $4,000. Dattilos company is Big Boy Industries, and he welcomes business inquiries by mail to 1532 U.S. 41 Bypass S., #252 or to his website: EveryoneNeedsaBuddy. com.Local uses event to invent Buddy BucketBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONInventor Dan Dattilo of Nokomis displays the specially designed Buddy holder with tools and cloth accessories and the Buddy Bucket.

OPINION 8A WEDNESDAY JANUARY 8, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR RONALD DUPONT JR. PHONE: 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com PUBLISHER TIM SMOLARICK PHONE: 941-207-1010 FAX: 941-484-8460 Panhandlers. Im calling about all the panhandlers in back of the Publix Shopping Plaza on U.S. 41 in Venice. Cant we do something about them? They are pathetic looking, and I dont think we need them. At least tell people not to give them anything. That will make them go away. Water Plan. To City Council: Open your minds. Listen to your constituents. Keep your consultant recommending an underground ltration system which decreases bacteria count similar to that in normal groundwater. Sounds like this can be done for about the same price as your plan to dump untreated water on any part of our wonderful beach. Open your minds. Water Spin. I am calling in response to the article about the solution thats in the works for solving our contamination issues at Venice Beach. We should now call Venice Spin City because that is all the Gondolier has done regarding this article and this issue. This is spin. The title of the article reads, City to dump untreated bacteria on the beach. Well, that is exactly whats been going on all these years, and thats why our beach gets closed repeatedly. Some years as many as four or ve times. The solution is what engineers hired by the city of Venice have come up with. These are professionals; this is their job. This is not a bunch of Golden Beach residents. The same residents that thought they could put one over on the FAA and get our desirable air port closed; which, of course, they failed after costing all of us a ton of money. Now how much is this going to cost us, the rest of the residents, to keep our beach safe? We are talking about a swale up in the dunes. You would not be able to stand at the waters edge and see the swale. We are now and have been dumping our untreated bacteria on the beach! Now the plan is to nally stop doing that. What is the problem here? How about spin the other way, and make our beach safe. Water Praise. What the 53 Venice residents who endorsed the Jan. 4 Guest Column entitled City to dump untreated bacteria on beach failed to mention is that the untreated bacteria from those two major outows on the island has been running across our beach and into our Gulf for many, many years. Instead of crying, Not my backyard, why not applaud the city and the engineers involved who have worked very hard in the past two or more years. Now we can conrm the source of the problem but to offer what appears to be a viable and expedient solution in the form of that eco-bio swale. Its a great rst step at solving this ongoing problem, and if there are any negative effects, surely they can be addressed just as expediently in the future. Water Eyesore. Regarding the Guest Column City to dump untreated bacteria on beach: I agree entirely with the Guest Column. I would have signed it happily; and Im glad somebody is doing something to deter the Venice City Council from a precipitous, illadvised approach to a problem that has been on Venice Beach for many years. Yes, occasionally, it has to close. Putting an open eyesore on the beach will not help that situation and, in fact, it seems absurd. All it takes is a big storm to wash all of that immediately into the Gulf. There has to be a better way; and the fact this is being done so precipitously leads me to believe that there are other interests involved than the citys people. Water & Storms. I am calling about the citys decision to put bacteria on part of our beautiful Venice Beach. What happens when we have a tor rential rain or any rain, for that matter. Doesnt all the bacteria then go directly into the Gulf? The Letem Have It line allows readers to sound off on issues of local interest. Opinions expressed here are solely those of the callers.

OUR VIEWMeeting between Venice, North Port was a positive oneRelations got snippy last year when North Port city commissioners proposed holding a joint meeting with Venice city council members to discuss issues of mutual interest. A routine request escalated into a political standoff. At rst, the offer was rebuffed by the Venetians, some of whom said they were afraid of being dragged into a Bash Sarasota County match by their counterparts in North Port. They considered the North Porters anti-business and antagonistic to the county. They wanted more distance, not less. The meeting was scheduled, though, and the two boards nally sat down together Monday afternoon at a big conference room at the Morgan Family Community Center in North Port. There was a sizable crowd of citizens for a Monday afternoon. Four city police ofcers manned the event, which seemed an over-the-top precaution. No reworks, though. Never a discouraging word, in fact. The two boards managed to sit down and discuss a broad variety of issues cordially. They tended to agree on a number of things, some of which were lightweight issues and others that could have signicant consequences. And they did open what seemed to be a friendly line of communication, which is always positive. Most of the specics involved the standard fare for these types of meet ings. The two boards suggested ways they may work together to improve water quality and ways to cross-promote each citys events and festivals. There was a presentation on proposed bicycle recreation trails between the two cities and discussion of Wi-Fi capabilities. The need for a covered swimming pool was discussed. Most of those issues, put on the agenda at the urging of North Port Commissioner Cheryl Cook, were punted to staff for further consideration. Typical for these meetings: Decision-makers agree to investigate and staff ends up with more work. Who knows? Something may come of it. But two matters brought by Venice ofcials had real heft. Both boards agreed to study the possibility of establishing a municipal services taxing unit for the county Sheriffs Ofce, something that could lead to lower tax rates for city residents. The idea, championed by Venice Mayor John Holic, could gain more traction with the support of both boards. They also agreed to look into how they might reopen the prisoner holding facility in Venice that was recently closed by the Sheriffs Ofce. In the end, this seemed a productive meeting, despite the fact that Venice City Council Members Jeanette Gates and Bob Daniels had chosen not to attend. The tone was upbeat. No gratu itous county-bashing occurred. The only alliances formed seemed to be healthy ones. All positive. Dental emergency leads to frantic callsOne can only guess what this year marked as 2014 will bring the world, our country and our community over the next year. I am sure we all have a list of things we would enjoy experiencing become reality. Ironically, my buddy Ethan in Venice has already seen some unfortunate luck as he lost the motor off his boat he received as a Christmas present over the weekend. Certainly, this is not what he had hoped the New Year would bring. Couple that with his precious Chicago Bears not playing in 2014 and this poor guy has not started out 2014 well. There is hope as he is an industrious one and has started his very own motor fund. Knowing this kid, he will be back on the water soon as he has the heart of a lion and the determination of Ferris Bueller. In fact, he just could be a Bueller. My luck was not much better as Monday I had a major dental emergency, which in the scheme of things does not feel all that bad unless you are freakishly weird about dentists. I have a dentist in Tampa who after years coerced me into letting him do dental work on me. He is the only person allowed to work on my teeth and I have to tell you that after 15 years, I nally agreed to recognize him on all the paperwork as my dentist. I dont like the whole dentistry thing. Anyway, this emergency occurred at 12:30 p.m. I had a major meeting with our Best Of Venice committee at 3 p.m.; there is no way I am going to make it to Tampa. So I leave the ofce almost panicky. I dont like anyone working in my mouth, let alone a stranger, but I have to be at the meeting. I call our medical rep, Charleen Myers, for assistance with my dental emergency. Charleen can be a very concerned and helpful person when challenged with an obstacle and begins the questioning. I am a guy; I dont want to answer questions when I am 100 percent. When there is a dental emergency, I really dont want to be involved in an interrogation. After 30 minutes of answering questions, Charleen felt condent enough to call a dentist client of ours to x my issue. Bad luck again. They were not in the ofce. Charleen calls back, and more questions, more time out the window and we have a referral. In the meantime, I do what every man does when there is no hope in sight, we call her the wife or girlfriend as we have made all efforts to x said problem. After answering all questions again, its like they have a check off list for questions designed for any scenario ever my girlfriend springs into action in Sarasota. We are now past 1 p.m. and I am sweating that I will not be ready for the meeting. Charleen comes through with a referral. As I am talking to her refer ral, it is determined that they dont have all of the needed material for this emergency and asks me to call Davis and Beyer, Dental Health Professionals. This team went into action from the rst contact. I was told to come in and they would get me in right away and I would make the meeting. I call my girlfriend and tell her my problem is solved as I am driving toward the destination. Now she has to cancel all plans she has made, but lucky for me she is not angry. Upon reaching the location, I was asked to ll out paper work, but was told by the lady up front I would not have time to nish it as the dentist would call me in right away. That did happen. The dentist and his assistant had me in the chair and numbed up in ve minutes, assuring me that the numb feeling would be gone by 2:30 p.m. They did their thing on my emergency and had me on my feet and out the door in record time. The entire staff was accommodating, focused and knew the job that needed to be done. More importantly, they performed the task awlessly. Davis and Beyer, on this day you were my National Champion as you saved my day, and you stayed focused on the entire 60 minutes, not just 59. Perhaps the Auburn Tigers could learn a lesson from this staff.WHAT SHOULD VENICE DO ABOUT THE BEACH POLLUTION PROBLEM? CALL US AT 941-207-1111.

After going through some offensive struggles, Indians coach Jim Davis decided to use Angelo in a reserve role for Tuesdays contest against the Booker Tornadoes. Angelo responded with her best game of the season, scoring 19 points and pulling down five rebounds in leading the Indians to a 62-52 victory. Ive played terrible lately, Angelo said. Coach said he was going to do this and there wasnt much I could do about it. My teammates told me to keep my head up because they know what I can do. Davis said, She has been struggling for a few games and Im glad to see her attack the basket. She was finishing shots. For us to be successful this season, we need Taylor to play like this. Senior guard Maggie Flynn added 17 points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals as the Indians used a 19-2 run in the third quarter to take the lead and not look back. She is so much farther ahead than I thought she would be with her knee, Davis said. On offense she has so many weapons. On defense, she doesnt have the same lateral quickness, but its coming. The Tornadoes got out to a 12-4 lead in the first quarter before Venice closed with six straight points to only trail 12-10 after one. We missed like six layups, Davis said. Those were shots we normally make. It wasnt anything they were doing on defense, we just couldnt put the ball in the basket. Booker switched to a 1-3-1 trap in the second quarter and it confused the Indians. After tying the game at 20, the Tornadoes scored seven straight points to take a 27-20 lead. Yamaris Guevarez and Cellexia Foster scored seven points each in the quarter. Flynn scored five of Venices 13 points in the quarter to keep the Indians close. The 1-3-1 has wide gaps but theyre really athletic and close those gaps, Davis said. It took some adjusting on our part. The Tornadoes continued to frustrate the Indians, who had no answer for Foster and Guevarez. The two guards helped Booker extend its lead to 37-27 before the Indians went on a 17-0 run. Every Indian got involved as Angelo powered to the basket for layups, Flynn beat the Tornadoes in transition and Tiara Ward handled the offensive glass for easy points. The Indians took a 46-39 lead into the fourth quarter. We changed our defensive positioning, Davis said. We came more up the line so we could help on (Guevarez) without leaving our teammates out to dry. Venice continued their onslaught in the fourth as Flynn and Angelo continued to exploit mismatches. When I see someone like that in front of me, I attack the basket, Angelo said. Now that I know that I can do this, I will play better. The Indians also had a strong performance from the free-throw line, connecting on 15 of their 20 attempts. Shooting that well was huge for us, Davis said. Were good shooters and we did a great job. Along with Flynn and Angelo, Mariah Miller scored nine points and grabbed five rebounds. Ward scored eight points and led Venice with 12 rebounds. Guevarez led the Tornadoes with 18 points and eight assists, while Foster added 16 points.Angelo comes off bench to lead Indians over BookerBy NATE COWANSUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTO BY JUSTIN FENNELLMariah Miller scores two of her nine points in Venices 62-52 win over Booker Tuesday night. 481758 GO TEAM TUESDA YS!

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A As 2014 begins, I nd myself thinking back to the dramatic changes in my life since August 2012, when my wife and I retired to Venice and fell in love with the local ora and fauna, the vibrant colors, the exotic birdlife, and the mild temperature of the Gulf and its oh-so-wonderful beaches. Among the many miracles of our new life in retirement was a freedom I began experiencing after almost 50 years of working and raising a family. I was nally able to do whatever I really wanted to do. In beautiful Venice, I could now walk the beach, swim, photograph birds, ride a bike, and play golf not just 24/7, but 24/7/365! And I could en gage in all these outdoor endeavors without having to feel there was something more important that I ought to be doing rst. So, for most of 2013, I was intoxicated by a feeling of physical renewal. Was there any limit to the old muscles I could reinvigorate by using them in this burst of physical activity? I started playing golf at the Lakes of Venice course, and my new buddies, like former buddies up North, told me I had a smooth swing and that if I played a lot, Id be good. Well, I played twice a week for about a year, but didnt really get much better. As disappointment set in, I signed up for a lesson and Rebecca Johnson, the teaching pro at Capri Isles Golf Course, helped me understand (nally) that golf isnt just a physical game; its a cerebral one, too. Since August, Ive been contributing senior golf stories to the Venice Gondolier Sun. Writing a monthly column about golf has given me a chance to expand my perspective on the game. Primarily, I still play to be out amidst the beauty of the environment; but also for the exertion and the endlessly variable challenges the game presents. But in writing about golf, Ive also developed a genuine appreciation for the humor, desperation, and bravery of my fellow senior golfers. Ive also been learning how to learn how to improve and enjoy my golf skills, whatever they are and arent. I still love walking nine holes at Capri Isles in the late afternoons, often all alone on the course. Im vividly aware of the surroundings and of the physicality of walking and playing. It takes everything I have; my lower back acts up. After awhile I begin realizing that creating successful shots is not the same thing as being enraptured with these late afternoon walkabouts. When I ask a neighbor of mine who plays par golf what his secret is, he tells me to focus on putting rst, then chipping to isolate one type of shot after another and focus my practice on that one shot. So its not just about knocking myself out physically, no matter how happily, to the point of exhaustion and pain. Now I study YouTube teaching videos, then go out and work on one aspect of my game at a time. Worshipping the deity that is golf, I actually proclaimed my love of the game aloud a few evenings ago. What made me so happy was a steeply undulating practice green and the variety of interesting putts it required of this supplicant to the golf gods. I enjoyed the placement of the holes, right on hilly crests, so that even putts that just missed the cup by an inch, and almost died at the pin, could trickle down a steep slope and wind up 15 feet below the hole! Once again I was alone on a golf course at dusk, this time on a cool (for Florida), breezy, late December early evening. Walking alone to my car, still enjoying myself immensely from the challenges of the practice green, in the chilly December dusk, I heard myself proclaim, I love you, golf!

VENUE 3B SOUTH TRAIL 4B AROUND TOWN 8BWEDNESDAY JANUARY 8, 2014 CONTACT US KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR 941-207-1000 kcool@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERSOUR TOWN Lost, hungry and abandoned just a few months ago, three lucky cats are experiencing a new leash on life this year. St. Francis Animal Rescue has had a few remarkable rescue efforts recently. The no-kill cat and kitten shelter and adoption center in Venice was able to return a stray cat found in North Carolina to its owners in Venice, who were seasonal residents preparing to head back up north.Returning CruiserAmy Burke, manager at St. Francis Animal Rescue, said she received a phone call from a rescue shelter in North Carolina that had found a cat and the microchip matched an address in Venice. We contacted the people and they were packing up to leave the very next day they were overjoyed, said Burke. This is a true testament that microchips do work and can really make a difference when pets get lost. John Gordon, a North Carolina pilot who volunteers for Pilots N Paws, a network of private pilots who donate their time and their planes to transport rescue animals, offered to y Cruiser home. The North Carolina shelter agreed to board him until his ight back. Two weeks later, Cruiser landed in Venice. In spite of being conned in a carrier for over 12 hours in a small Cessna airplane with a stranger, Cruiser calmly greeted us with one quiet meow, Burke said. Cruiser settled in at the shelter and became our self-appointed ofce kitty. Cruiser was reunited with his family six weeks later. Fixing HollyWhen Rick and Marilyn Thomas found Holly, a beautiful brown and white cat, she was emaciated, could barely move and her right front leg looked like it was broken at the joint. They immediately called Shelley Kingsbury and Kurt Winter at the Punta Gorda Animal Hospital. Dr. Kingsbury saw the little stray as the last patient of the day. Her paw was separated from her leg and there was an open puncture wound in that area. She vowed to save her. After a thorough examination, the doctor suspected the leg bone was badly infected and the leg would have to be amputated. Rick was on the hunt for a shelter that would take a three-legged cat. St. Francis Animal Rescue offered to take the stray. Holly continued to amaze the doctors and staff during her recovery sitting up, eating voraciously and using the litter box. She (Holly) is declawed, and the people who found her think that a larger animal must have tried to get her but she somehow got away, Burke said. She is such a loving cat and she has really made a speedy recovery considering all Fortunate felines get a new leash on lifeBy SUSAN ERWINGONDOLIER SUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY SUSAN ERWINTo help the shelter, people can purchase a memorial brick paver and have a message engraved in it as a permanent tribute to their beloved pet.

This is but a tiny bit of the convoluted tale spun by the late s British playwright Joe Orton in Loot, the second production of the season by the second-year students in the FSU/Asolo Conservatory of Actor Training. Youve been a widower for three days, Fay asks the grieving widower (Michael Frishman) on the day of the funeral. Have you considered a second wife yet? Mrs. McLeavys body is in the cofn in the parlor of the McLeavys hotel in London. It is the day of the funeral. Mr. McLeavy is obviously distraught about the death of his wife but it seems that Fay, too, has had an even unhappier life. My husbands all died, she said. Ive had seven you see. Despite what has happened to all her former husbands, Dennis is totally smitten with Fay. Fay, on the other hand, is more interested in the grieving widower, or at least in his estate. She seems to have already taken care of the late wifes estate or so she says as she tries to convince Mr. McLeavy to become her eighth husband. Hal and Dennis have their own problem. They need to hide the money they stole from the bank because they fear the police may be on to them. They involve Fay in their dilemma for a share of the loot. With Fays help, the corpse is stripped and wrapped in a sheet and the body stuffed in a cabinet, leaving the cofn as a place to stash the cash. During the exchange of body and cash, it seems one of Mrs. McLeavys glass eyes pops out and rolls somewhere in the room. It is into this convoluted scenario that a man claiming to be from the water department arrives. Later we learn that the man is Truscott (Brian Owen) of The Yard. When he discovers the wrapped body, Hal, Dennis and Fay convince him that what is wrapped in the curtain is the manikin she uses for sewing clothing and will be used to demonstrate at a conference. As Truscott peppers the three with questions, Hal blurts out that he had a hand in the bank job. Remember he cannot tell a lie. What Orton shows us on stage is diabolically outrageous and what seems to occur offstage is even more so as the story escalates and poor Mrs. McLeavy is nearly buried, save for a crash in which the hearse, grieving widower and a Loot is outrageous on steroidsBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR PHOTO COURTESY OF FSU/ASOLO CONSERVATORY FOR ACTOR TRAININGMatthew Andersen, left, Brian Owen and Jory Murphy in FSU/Asolo Conservatorys production of Loot. though Jan. 19 in the Cook Theatre.LOOT | 7 481159 1694 S Tamiami Tr Venice 492-6000 rrf rf ntrbbbbb n 481627 MASERATI OF SARASOTA

WELL-BEING 2B WEDNESDAY JANUARY 8, 2014 CONTACT US 941-207-1102 ablackwell@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS There are three things Jonathan Fong said he would never do. First, hed never be a doctor. Second, okay then, if he did become a doctor, hed never be a heart surgeon. Third, hed never live in the South. Those are ne words, coming from a cardiac surgeon in Venice, Fla. But Jonathan Fong is no ordinary physician. A highly skilled surgeon, he is one of the reasons why Venice Regional Medical Center has been given a top rating (3 out of 3 stars) by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons for the past three years, one of only three hospitals in Florida to do so. Hes had his share of famous patients. Other physicians have chosen him when they themselves or their family members needed a heart procedure. And he has built up a devoted following of former patients who swear by him as a doctor and a friend. Fong was one of four children born to Chinese parents in Philadelphia, Pa. I was the middle gestation, he says, a turn of phrase that only a physician would use. His parents were both pharmacists, and he had three sisters, including twins. One sister became a pharmacist, another became a nurse, and the black sheep of the family became an English teacher, he deadpans. Sounds like someone destined to enter the medical profession. I wasnt interested in medicine, he says. I was interested in the hard sciences, but I went into medicine because my father wanted me to, and I respected his wishes as his only son. It so happens that Jonathan was the top student in his high school class of 800, and he was given a chance to test for a scholarship award that would pay for an acceler ated ve-year program at Penn State and Thomas Jefferson Medical College, netting him a BS and an MD degree. He took the test, got the award, and went. I felt honor-bound to do that, he says, and 26 years later, hes very happy he did. So are a lot of other people here in Venice. During his residency, he did a rotation at Columbia Medical School, which had the countrys leading heart transplant program, and the whole process so fascinated him that he changed his career plan from general surgery to heart surgery. He had already developed a great pair of surgeons hands. Whatever my mother taught my sisters, she taught me as well, he said. So I learned to sew, cross-stitch, whatever, when I was quite young. I became very nimble with my ngers, and that comes in handy when I do surgical stitching. When he nished his residency at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., Dr. Fong joined the Ocala Heart Institute at their Leesburg, Fla., ofces. And when they opened an ofce in Venice afliated with Venice Regional, he came here in 2003. Something beyond his great surgical skill sets Fong apart from many of his colleagues. He is able to cross the barriers that often separate physicians from their patients and staff. A lot of doctors compartmentalize their lives, professional and personal, he says. Thats understandable, because physicians need to shield themselves from the sufferings of their patients, some of whom die on them. The cumulative psychological toll can be devastating. I like talking to my patients, nding out about them, what they did with their lives and careers, he says. Its fascinating. And Ive always appreciated the collective wisdom of the aged. Now theres a man with good judgment. I was raised as a Christian, Fong says, and as a Christian, I was always asking myself how I could do a better job of integrating my beliefs with my work. I felt there was a deeper purpose in life beyond the practice of medicine. I decided that I could dedicate myself to making people feel better. I could correct their anatomic abnormalities so theyd feel better physically, and I could talk with them, or relate to them so theyd feel better psychologically. That he has succeeded in this is attested to by the thick les of letters he receives from his patients. I love to read their letters, he says. And why not? Theyre lled with praise and thanks for what Fong has done for them. Fong does not stop there. Very early every Thursday morning, he leads a devotional session for other members of Venice Regionals staff: nurses, physicians, technicians, whoever wants to attend. He tells them to fulll themselves and to reach out to others, to truly put their beliefs, whatever they are, into their work and their relationships with others. And you can bet he tells them, Never say never.After saying never, Fong leads by example, action HOSPITAL TALESDEAN LAUX, GUEST COLUMNIST PHOTO PROVIDEDJonathan Fong, MD, is a physician who practices what he preaches. The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (DOH-Sarasota) urges pregnant women to receive the u vaccination due to the increased impact inuenza infections are having on pregnant women and their babies. The u vaccine is the single best way to prevent u, said DOH-Sarasota Medical Director Dr. William Heymann. We want to make sure people understand how important it is for pregnant women to receive the inuenza vaccination to protect themselves and their babies. DOH-Sarasota recommends that all people six months of age and older receive the u vaccination. It is especially important for pregnant women to be vaccinated due to the increased risk of complications associated with having the u while pregnant. The u vaccination is safe and protects the mother, the unborn child, and helps protect babies shortly after birth. More prevention steps include frequent hand washing, keeping hands away from the face and covering the mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing and coughing. Flu symptoms include headache, fever, severe cough, runny nose or body aches. If you are experiencing any symptoms, see your primary care provider immediately. For more information on pregnant women and inuenza, visit Cdc.gov/u/protect/ vaccine/pregnant.htm. Flu vaccines are offered in many locations, including doctors ofces, clinics, health departments, retail stores, pharmacies, health centers, and by many employers and schools. Check for locations with your physician, the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County or visit FloridaHealth.gov/ prevention-safety-andwellness/u-prevention/ locate-a-u-shot.html.

SOUTH TRAIL 4B WEDNESDAY JANUARY 8, 2014 CONTACT US RONALD DUPONT JR. EDITOR 941-207-1218 rdupont@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS When Steve Jordans son Jamie died at 28 of complications from drug usage, he lost his best friend. Jordan had a hard time coping in the past two years since Jamies death. Eventually, he channeled his sadness into something that could help bring awareness and be a tribute to Jamie. Jordan began creating a life-sized, portable sculpture with the names of other local young people who died due to drug-related activities. A parent should never have to bury their child, said Jordan, a 30-year resident of North Port. As I was working on the Tree of Life, I got help from people who were recover ing from drug or alcohol addictions. Together we worked on this project for hours. It was a way for me to begin my healing process, and for them to work on something with great meaning. Jordan named his artwork The Tree of Life If It Saves One Life. It is a combination of etched glass with a tribute to Jamie. It has a small statue of an angel. Above the angel are many branches. Attached to some of them are hearts made of bronze with the names of people who have died some as young as 15 including Marissa Martek, Sean Connor, Calvin Pepe, Kristopher Van Camp, Gerome Battis, Jillion Whimier, Sherri Comstock, Crystal Degregoria, Mary Tayler, Thomas Zellas, Christopher Wilson, Brandy Celine, Catlin Pries Tap, Nathan Easterly, Candice Brown Courtright, Chad Desantis, Justin Davis and Vinny Milano. Also on the tree is 15-year-old Nick Blocks name. He was found dead of an accidental drug overdose alongside his mother, who survived an overdose and is now in federal prison along with her husband, who was implicated in supplying his family with the pills and alcohol in a North Port hotel room in 2010. Most of the people on the tree are from the North Port area, said Candace Townsend, certied addiction counselor at Tri-County Counseling. Addiction is a deeply concerning issue because it impacts family members who have suffered a loss. Steve is offering to add names of others who have died from addiction to his Tree of Life as a way to help more families. Two years ago, Sarasota County shut down pill mills, where doctors were prescribing medication freely with limited state supervision. As a result, there were fewer deaths (in some cases accidental) from prescription medications from 2011 to 2012. However, Jordan said it was too late for his son. I cant get my son back, he said. The one thing I can do is offer the Tree of Life If it Saves One Life to churches, schools, at the library and other local places to display for a month at a time. It will create conver sations between children and their parents. It reminds people of those young people we have lost over the years. There are teenagers names on the tree, as well as those in their 30s. By letting our youth know the reality of the damage drug abuse causes, maybe we can stop it at the root easier than trying to undo a problem that seems to be unstoppable once its started, he said. Longtime resident Nellie Milano recently visited the Tree of Life. She cried as she touched the bronze heart with her son Vinnys name on it. He died in October of 2012, she said. I miss him every day. Its so hard for me. I hope this tree brings healing. Its not easy when you lose a child.

After listening to more than two hours of public comment on both sides of a proposed ordinance that would ban the sale of commercially bred dogs, cats and rabbits in pet stores in Sarasota County, commissioners recently pushed back any action on the ordinance for 60 days to get clarification from legal staff. In early December, more than 200 people packed the commission chambers at the Robert L. Anderson Administration Center in South Venice including a large group of citizens opposed to the ordinance who arrived on a charter bus from Sarasota. Nearly 60 people, from concerned citizens to veterinarians to nearly an entire staff of one of the stores that would be affected by the ordinance, signed up to speak during public comment. Presentations included graphic photos of conditions at puppy mills, where speakers allege that the four retail establishments in the county that sell puppies or kittens buy the animals they sell in stores. These include Petland, on Fruitville Road near Interstate 75 in Sarasota; Top Dog Pets & Grooming, located in the Gulf Gate area; and Puppies R Us, opened recently on South Tamiami Trail, south of the Sarasota city limits. An additional location, Puppy Town, located on Tamiami Trail, is within the city of Sarasota. Petland owner Cathy Harper, who had nearly her entire staff speak, denied getting puppies from a mill. She said her staff regularly visits breeders and felt honored to know where the stores puppies come from after visiting the homes. Petland corporate also visits breeders and providers, and discontinues any business with any breeder who is found with violations, she said. We love animals and we want to send happy, healthy pets to forever homes, Harper said. Our puppies come from USDA licensed and respected breeders and providers with no direct violations. Many of our pups are AKC, which means theyre inspected by the American Kennel Club as part of their program. We use good breeders who take care of their dogs. Puppy Town owner William Rowland said the ordinance takes away the rights of the people to purchase the animals where they choose. Theres no need for an ordinance that closes businesses and doesnt even address the problem, he said. Puppy Town does not support puppy mills or bad breeders. Commissioners were torn about moving forward to advertise a public hearing where the ordinance would be adopted. County Attorney Steve DeMarsh said he had concerns over some of the contracts that businesses may have with providers, meaning the ordinance could come under fire from the states commerce clause that regulates business. We have to address this commerce clause rst, County Commissioner Joe Barbetta said. It seems like were singling out four businesses and we havent gotten any groundswell of complaints on those to my knowledge, so it seems like wed be passing an ordinance that would shut down retail operations when we could nd another way to address this issue. This is obviously a major issue, and the state Legislature should be all over it. The commission voted unanimously to have DeMarsh conduct a legal review of the ordinance. It will return to the board as a discussion item within the next couple of months.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comSarasota County delays action on pet ordinanceBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER The Players Theatre continues the song and dance of a successful 84th season with a new pro duction of the immortal musical Carousel. The show runs on The Players main stage Thursday, Jan. 9 through Jan. 19 with shows every day except Monday and Friday. Carousel includes the well-known songs If I Loved You, June Is Bustin Out All Over and Youll Never Walk Alone. Set in a late 19th century Maine coastal village, the carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow captivates and marries naive mill worker Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperate to provide a decent life for his family, becomes an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent up there. Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day 15 years later and encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her fathers reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout childhood. The manner in which Billy instills a sense of hope and dignity in both the child and her mother is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. Its easy to understand why Carousel was Rodgers & Hammersteins personal favorite. Love, loyalty, forgiveness and faith are the abiding themes given to his child and the audience. Featured players are William Masuck (Billy Bigelow), Kathryn Parks (Julie Jordan), Nikki Maack Shuster (Carrie Pipperidge), Sharon Ohrenstein (Nettie Fowler) and Ian Cicco (Enoch Snow). Carousel also boasts a talented ensemble of local performers, a hallmark of The Players Theatre productions. Berry Ayers directs and choreographs the show; Joyce Valentine conducts the instrumental ensemble. Ayers shares his take on the classic story: So, I delved into the script thinking, Rodgers & Hammerstein = light fun. Instead, what I found was a nuanced, touching and timeless tale of love and choices. I knew that I had to tell this story simply and truthfully and be true to the heart of its creators; including the incredible Agnes De Mille. This is not a show where I ask you to sit back and watch, I hope you end up on the edge of your seat, completely involved, with a possible tear or two in your eyes. Voted Best Musical of the 20th Century by Time magazine, Carousel offers a ride full of ups and downs, with the singing, dancing and drama that can only come from the duo of Rodgers & Hammerstein. Tickets are $30 for premium seating (rows A-E) and $25 for all others. Groups of 10 or more receive special discount pricing. Tickets can be purchased in advance at ThePlayers.org or by calling 941-365-2494. The theater is at 848 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.Hop on for a theatrical Carousel rideFROM THE PLAYERS THEATRE The ninth annual Dick Vitale Gala will be held Friday, May 16, at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, hosted by V Foundation for Cancer Research, a leading cancer research funding organization.

I am so touched by all of the sports celebrities who donate their time to assist us in striving to make Jimmy Vs dream a reality, Vitale said. We all must unite to battle this dreaded disease. In Jimmys famous ESPY speech, he mentioned that during every day we should all think and be filled with enough emotion to make us laugh and cry. I am sure we will not let Jimmy down as we once again experience the electricity of the evening and join together at this fantastic event.

The greatest benet of being the social columnist for the Venice Gondolier Sun is meeting people. I recently sat with Adele Stoffers at her 100th birthday party at Village on the Isle for about an hour. I enjoyed a second piece of birthday cake with its luscious whipped cream frosting. As retired teachers, we reminisced about former students. When I decided to leave, I thanked Adele for inviting me to her party and started to walk away. As I did, I heard Adele say, Who was that lady? She was very nice but who was she? We all had a good laugh. I came right back and introduced myself. Obviously, Adele didnt want any party crashers at her 100th.Lovely to look atIf you like touring homes, mark Feb. 14 on your calendar for the AAUW annual home tour. All proceeds provide scholarships, usually around 12, for returning college students to finish their degrees. Tickets are $20, available at Venice Stationers and Deborahs Quilt Basket on Venice Avenue, Cardware on Jacaranda and Center and Ophelias in Nokomis. Call Kathy for info at 941-488-5897 and visit aauw.net.Shout outThe Venice Yacht Clubs Love and Cookies committee packages about 300 boxes of cookies for Hospice Families in this community. This annual event brings holiday cheer to families whose loved ones are in Hospice care. Venice Yacht Club committee members were Marlene Haviland, Barbara Johnson, Addie Griffith, Paula Graser, Claire Mercereau, Peg Little, Sandy ODonnell and Sara Terranova. Bravo, Ladies!One of our bestThe special person of this week is David Yarzab. This nice man was the general manager of the Venice Yacht Club and had the rare gift of making everyone who came to the Club feel like a guest. Thanks to Davids warm smile and friendly greeting, everyone felt welcome. In spite of how busy he was managing club business, David always had time to make sure this columnist had all the information she needed in covering an event. He was always a gracious host asking if I wanted a drink. Since I had my amputation, he was often at my side holding my plate at the buffet even when I assured him I was fine. I know, hed say. Like everyone else who knew David, my heart is broken at his passing. This community and this columnist have lost a gentle friend. Rest in peace, David.

January 8 14, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 Lets Go! Pets is sneaking up on me and I have yet to begin putting content together for it. Whoopsy! What can I say? Lets Go! has kept me extremely busy. But as I begin to work on the pet section this week, I wanted to remind all of our readers that they are welcome to submit photos of their cute dogs, cats, birds, turtles, horses OK, you get the point for Lets Go! Pets. As with Lets Go!, my goal is to continue to grow the Lets Go! Pets section and add new features to it to keep it interesting and fun for all the pet lovers out there. As of right now, some things that I would like to do with the pet section are feature a veterinarian of the month, start a Q&A column where readers can send in questions about their pets and have a local veterinarian answer them, and start a pets stories section where readers can share their own stories about their pets, whether they helped save a life or how they tore up the house in five minutes. Some of these ideas came from the recent lunch meeting I had with fellow Lets Go! writers and photographers, and Im always looking for more. So if you have any ideas, please share. If you are a veterinarian who would like to be featured in our next Lets Go! Pets edition, or you know of a vet you would like to recommend, let me know. Im also looking for any vets who are interested in taking part in the Q&A Pets column but for that I need readers to send in questions. These can be about your pets behavior, health, or general questions about pets. So ask away! Ill make sure to follow up with a local vet and print the Q&A for all of us to gain a little more knowledge about our pets. Last but not least, if you have a funny or a heartmelting story about your pet that you would like to share in Lets Go! Pets, send it to me via email along with a photo of your pet. The deadline for all pet-related items is Jan. 29 for the Feb. 5 edition. I look forward to reading all about your furry friends. Til next time! G ABRIELA R AMIREZ Lets Go! Editor After walking all over the seven hills of Bamberg, it was good to get back on the train for a leisurely ride to Weimar where I was staying at the Hotel Kaiserin Augusta, right across the street from the station. As it was dark by the time I arrived (8:37 p.m.) I was happy to be able to simply stroll across the street and check in. After checking out y room, I headed downstairs for a late dinner in the hotels dining room. It was nearly full as most Europeans eat dinner at that time. Anja Dietrich came to the hotel in the morn ing as my guide for the day. We climbed into her very large Volkswagon sedan for a quick city tour and then a stop at the Bauhaus Museum, which was founded by famed German architect Walter Gropius. We had a building designed by Gropius at the edge of Shaker Heights, Ohio where I lived until moving to Venice. As a youngster, my daughter played with blocks that were based on Gropius curtain-wall design which he designed for skyscrapers. The building in Shaker employed that design. Modern furniture by Bauhaus designers also is displayed at the museum. Outside nearby, I managed a photo of statues of Goethe and Schiller in front of the Goethe and Schiller archive, which contains 130 estates featuring the works of Goethe, Schiller, Wieland, Liszt, Nietzsche and others. Goethes literary estate was included in UNESCOs Memory of the World in 2001. Classical Weimar is a World Heritage site on its own. There are 936 sites in 153 countries and the list keeps growing as sites qualify. One of the most intriguing sites in the city is the Duchess Anna Amalia Library which sustained much damage from a re in 2004. The library reopened in 2007 but thousands of books are still being restored at another site. Dietrich arranged for me to enter the build ings stunning Rococo Hall, which allows visitors by reservation only, with most slots lled far in Lets Go! on Facebook:www.facebook.com/ SunCoastLetsGoPresidentDavid Dunn-RankinPublisherCarol Moore 941-681-3031 cymoore@sun-herald.comEditorGabriela Ramirez 941-681-3006 gramirez@sun-herald.com Lets Go! letsgo@sun-herald.com 120 W.

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 8 14, 2014 EVENTS THIS WEEK ON THE COVER sAn American Craft Endeavors festival, which is part of Howard Alan Events, is a dierent kind of experience for the attendees. At this weekends 17th Annual Sullivan Street Craft Festival in Punta Gorda, more than 100 crafters from all over the country will be lining the street to present their creations. The show contains many Floridabased artists, and is always a highly attended event. Megan McMahan, who works in operations for Howard Alan Events, explained that the reason for the public's continued interest is because their craft shows oer a little something extra. "For our art shows, the crafters have to hand-make everything themselves," she said. "And they have to appear at the show. At every booth, the crafter will be there presenting their original work." What that practice does is make the consumer's purchasing process so much more personal.

MOVIESFROM PAGE 5 AP PHOTOThis Paramount Pictures image shows Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort in a scene from The Wolf of Wall Street. The Wolf of Wall StreetBy TOM LOVASKOSUN CORRESPONDENTThe fth collaboration of actor Leonard DiCaprio and Director Martin Scorsese, The Wolf of Wall Street is quite clearly a marriage made in well, lets say purgatory. In this lm, you can respect their art while cringing at the same time. DiCaprio is the wolf, a stockbroker named Jordan Belfort who is driven by the power of money and a lifestyle of debauchery in the late 1980s. Early on, his weird mentor (played by Matthew McConaughey) leads Belfort down a path to riches, where he is joined by partner Donnie Azo (Jonah Hill, who was so good in Moneyball). They build a team of deceitful, street-smart thugs who help the brokerage rm grow huge by selling everything from penny stocks to IPOs. Everyone gets lthy rich until FBI Agent Patrick Denham (Kyle Chandler) slowly pieces together a case to nail as many fraudulent bad guys as possible. As Belfort, DiCaprio is a control freak and the consummate salesperson, but not in a good way. His raging character is excessively lustful for wealth, power, drugs, booze, women and pricey toys (a helicopter, yacht, etc.). His stunning wife Naomi (Margot Robbie) is just another acquisition though his boisterous father Max (Rob Reiner) worries about it all crashing down. While Belfort rides his emotional roller coaster, were also aware that partner Donnie is just as crazed, maybe even more. The two go from bad to worse, without a hint of remorse for their actions. Even though Max warns his son that the chickens will come home to roost. The Wolf of Wall Street is packed with characters to hate, though there is no real sense of the other side namely, all those average people who got bilked out of their money. In a lm of nearly three hours, there are a few chuckles of dark comedy and much focus on the hedonistic values of the leader and his wolf pack. Its all about having it all in excess. This movie is a testament to aging lmmaker Scorseses best work, particularly Goodfellas. But The Wolf of Wall Street is certainly not for everyone. says Maybe Go! 463087 54372112 ROTONDA ELKS LODGE #2710 J a n u a r y 1 1 t h K e i t h C o l e m a n D i n n e r S h o w January 11th Kei th Coleman Di nner Show T i c k e t s O n S a l e A t B a r 5 p m 1 1 p m Ti ckets On Sale At Bar 5 pm 11 pm J a n u a r y 1 8 t h L o d g e V i s i t a t i o n B u s T r i p January 18th Lodge Vi si tati on Bus Tri p R e s e r v a t i o n s R e q u i r e d T i c k e t s L i m i t e d Reservati ons Required Ti ckets Li mi ted 303 Rotonda Blvd. East 941-697-2710 Lunch & Dinner Specials Open at 11:00 am FRIDAYS DINNER & DANCE UPCOMING EVENTS SMOKE FREE BUILDING WESTCHESTER GOLDi i ipresents"Putting on the Ritz"An evening of casino-stylegames, dinner, dancing,O auctions & fun!Sat.

January 8 14, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 9 In 1984, Craig and Lea Culver, along with Craigs parents George and Ruth, opened the very rst Culvers in the familys hometown of Sauk City, Wis. Since the initial Culver's franchise was opened in 1990, the company has expanded to more than 450 family-owned restaurants across 19 states and it is still growing. The reason for the rapid expansion is simple people love Culver's. Steve Buchmeier, who is the operating partner of the new Port Charlotte franchise, which just opened up on Dec. 9, 2013, says fans of the restaurant seek it out wherever they travel. "Since the rst day Culver's was started in 1984, it has been brought up on the ingredients of fresh, quality food," he said. "When you come in, your food doesn't start cooking until you place your order." Buchmeier describes the theme of the restaurant as "fast, casual," but though you do get your food rather quickly, the quality of the food is not your typical fast-food fare. Two of the signature items of Culver's are their ButterBurgers and their Frozen Custards. "Our ButterBurger is made with fresh beef, which has never been frozen," Buchmeier said. "It's called the 'ButterBurger' because the roll is lightly buttered and toasted. The other staple of our menu would have to be our fresh, frozen custard each day, we have vanilla, chocolate and the 'avor of the day.'" The avor of the day could be anything from Chunky Peanut Butter Dream to Chocolate Caramel Twist, and it is made daily in the restaurant. The possibilities of what it could be each day are practically limitless there are currently 95 avors on the list. In the lobby of the restaurant is a cooler that holds about two dozen dierent avors in pint containers to take home. In addition to the burgers, there are melts and sandwiches, soups and salads, and even dinner items like fried chicken, chop steak, pot roast, buttery shrimp and North Atlantic cod. And what would a Wisconsin-based restaurant chain be without Wisconsin Cheese Curds on the menu? For the uninitiated, Buchmeier explained that cheese curds, a uniquely Wisconsin delicacy, are formed as a by-product of the cheese-making process. "In the cheese-making process, what's left inside the vat is scraped into little balls of white and cheddar cheese," he said. "Then we lightly bread it and fry it." Though Culver's doesn't oer a breakfast menu, they are open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. Buchmeier said that so far, he has been very pleased with the Port Charlotte community's embracing of some of the best food items the dairy state has to oer. "We've stayed really busy, and it's exceeded our expectations," he said. "We have something for everyone here, and we're much more than just a burger joint." Culver's Port Charlotte is at 385 Kings Highway. For more information, or to see a copy of the menu or "avor of the day," visit the Facebook page or website at www.culvers.com/restaurants/ port-charlotte-, or call 941-627-2600.By DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT Culvers, a Wisconsin-based restaurant chain, opened up its Port Charlotte location on Dec. 9.

January 8 14, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 11 EVENTS THIS WEEK PHOTO PROVIDEDCynthia Sayers Hot Jazz Trio will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, at the Lemon Bay Playhouse in Englewood. With sold-out concerts in both Englewood and Sarasota in previous years, spectacular banjoist and vocalist Cynthia Sayer returns by popular demand for three area shows this month. Cynthia Sayers Hot Jazz Trio will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, at The Lemon Bay Playhouse, 96 W. Dearborn St., Englewood. Advance tickets are $18 and reservations strongly recommended by calling 941-475-6756. Contemporary, edgy and soulful, Sayer breaks all the banjo player stereotypes as she single-handedly brings the four-string banjo to the forefront of jazz. Celebrated as the top fourstring banjoist in the world today and praised for her drive and virtuosity by The New York Times, Cynthia is a founding member of Woody Allens New Orleans Jazz Band with whom she played and toured for over 10 years. Her solo career has taken her well beyond these New Orleans roots as a dynamic performer, instrumentalist and vocalist, and whose eclectic, swing-based shows embody the rarely heard range and versatility of the four-string jazz banjo. Sayer tours worldwide, and has played with many leading jazz, popular and roots artists, including Bucky Pizzarelli, Dick Hyman, Wynton Marsalis, Marvin Hamlisch, John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Charlie Giordano (Bruce Springsteens E Street Band), Andy Statman, Tony Trischka, and others. She was recently featured in the premiere jazz publication, Downbeat Magazine, and appeared on the popular NPR show Piano Jazz. Sayer also performed on ABC TVs nationally broadcast World News Now, as well as the TV and radio show, Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour. Her much-anticipated new album, Joyride, is receiving rave reviews. Tickets are now on sale for her three shows in Southwest Florida.

14 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 8 14, 2014 UPCOMING EVENTS The Cultural Center of Charlotte County was created to enrich the lives of Charlotte County residents and visitors by oering educational, recreational, and social and tness activities. With an eight-acre campus, featuring a 500+seat theater and a 7,200 square foot conference center, they can accommodate seminars, banquets and gatherings of any size for the local community. But it takes funds for maintain a facility of this size, and the Center relies on volunteers, donations and the support of their neighbors to thrive. One of the primary fundraisers of the year is the annual show presented by Cul-Cen Productions, a compa ny that is made up of a group of dedicated and talented volunteers. This year's show, running at 7 p.m. for three days, Jan. 16-18, is entitled "A Tribute to Broadway II," and musical director Jim Reuter says this production promises to be just as popular as the previous one. "Cul-Cen was started about 30 years ago, as a means to raise funds for the Cultural Center," he said. "Last year, we had three shows and we sold out every concert." The 2014 "Tribute to Broadway" will include numbers from "Fiddler on the Roof," "The Wizard of Oz" and "Grease." Reuter said that because of the age of most of the Cul-Cen performers, some of song lyrics from "Grease," which is about a group of high school friends, have been changed around just a bit. "In our production, this is the 35th reunion of Riddell High School," he said. "We're doing four songs from 'Grease' with dierent dialogue." Throughout the course of the show, there will be about 25 performers involved. Rehearsals for this once-a-year performance began back in June, with twice-a-month meetings.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 8 14, 2014 THINGS TO DORemember that Roller Derby show you used to watch on TV in the s? Sorry to break it to you that wasn't real. Much like "professional" wrestling was back in the day, the stunts on that show were all scripted, even though the actors in both shows were undeniably athletes. Today there are still roller derby teams around, but these are genuine. When the "bouts" are held, bones could be broken and blood may be spilled, but if you ask any of the competitors, they will tell you it is all worth it. The North River Rolling Renegades is a Sarasota/ Manatee-based team that competes all around the state of Florida. Jamie Tyler, known on the team as Con EB Good, says that they just completed their rst full season. "We had 10 bouts last season, between February and September," she said. "We have two nights a week practice, and occasionally, we do a trail skate outdoors for endurance. That's why this is a good way to maintain physical tness." Connie "K-Oss" Iachetta says that the basic rules of a roller derby bout are pretty simple there are ve women on each team. "You have four blockers and one jammer per team," she said. "The object of the sport is for the blockers not to let the jammers score. The jammers get a point per skater that they pass, and there are two halves, each lasting 30 minutes." On this level, roller derby skaters do not get paid, so these women do it for the love of the sport. That also means that most of them have actual careers outside of the roller rink. Besides the names of the skaters Trace Evidence, Ima Problem, Evel Diva, Nikki Stric-9 and more one of the most fascinating aspects of this team is the double life that many of them lead. When they're not banging on the track, Rockabilly Red is a dual-enrollment coordinator at State College of Florida and Con EB Good is an attorney. But when they're with the team, they are sisters. I love the girls, Tyler said. I grew up in Pensacola and when I moved here, I didn't really know anyone, and my mom also did this when I was younger. It's great to have this tness outlet. Iachetta is pretty quiet when she's o the track, but once she laces up those skates, it's game on. "For me, it brings out another side of me," she said. "I don't like crowds, but when I'm here, I don't mind it. This is a sisterhood we're all very close." The team supports itself, participating in fundraisers and selling sponsorships. This upcoming season, there will be a fuller schedule and more opportunities to take advantage of those spon sorships, by purchasing ads in their programs and signs on the walls of Stardust. And if you think you may want to try skating for the North River Rolling Renegades, the ladies are holding open tryouts. Believe it or not, you don't even have to know how to skate you just need to be a good team player and have the urge to learn. "When I came here, I could barely walk on skates," Tyler said. "The girls teach you. We work with any new recruit and teach you how to stand when you skate. And if you do fall, how to do it safely." Practices are open to the public and held at the Stardust Skate Center, 2571 12th Street in Sarasota. For more information about the North River Rolling Renegades and how to become a sponsor or a member of the team, visit the website at www. northriverrollingrenegades.com.

January 8 14, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 17 AT THE THEATERIf you're a fan of witty dialogue and romantic comedy, you'll want to join Janet and Josh on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), an 80-minute ride from San Francisco's International Airport to their last stop in East Bay. "2 Across," by Jerry Mayer, will be performed from Jan. 10-18 at the Charlotte Players Langdon Playhouse. Mayer, a Playwright and TV script writer ("All in the Family" and "The Facts of Life") writes about real people building relationships while solving life's puzzles. Janet, an uptight, mace-packing psychologist, is less than thrilled when Josh, an unkempt, free-spirited out-of-work actor, boards late and asks her to move from his "lucky seat." He's Jewish; she's Catholic. Both use entirely dierent strategies when solving New York Times crossword puzzles. They're unlikely to be headed for romance or are they? New Zealand-born Artistic Director, Ian Bisset, has worked as a Port Charlotte Players' stage manager, actor, and director for more than 10 years. In 2013 he directed the radio play "It's a Wonderful Life" and acted as Butch in "Leading Ladies." "After reading the rst 10 pages of Across, I fell in love with the play," said Bisset. "I love that it's all about conversation and that both characters are outspoken. One is afraid of making mistakes, while the other is not afraid to take chances. The fact that the action takes place on a train makes perfect sense." Bisset both directs and acts as Josh in "2 Across." Jenni Elliott, who plays Janet, recently relocated to Port Charlotte from Australia. Australians and New Zealanders often disagree, and when Elliott audi tioned for the part of Janet, Bisset, good-naturedly reminded her that she was lucky to get the part. Elliott and Bisset act as antagonists who become possible lovers in the play. A former Director of Marketing in Australia, Elliott is no stranger to the stage. She's acted in community theaters in Australia and was thrilled to discover the nearby Port Charlotte Players, Venice Theater, and Lemon Bay Playhouse. "My husband and I moved to Port Charlotte for the golf," she explained, "and we never expected to find so many community theaters and orchestras here." Elliott's husband, Rick Stannard, recently joined the Venice Concert Band as a trombonist. The Langdon Playhouse is located in the Charlotte Players Community Theater Center, 1182 Market Circle, Port Charlotte. "2 Across, a comedy of crosswords and romance, is playing at 7:30 p.m., Jan. 10-11 and Jan. 16-18, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12. Adult tickets cost $15. Student tickets are $8. Tickets are available online at www. CharlottePlayers.org or by phone at 941-625-4175, ext. 220. Future plays at the Langdon Playhouse include "Same Time Next Year" by Bernard Slade on Feb. 7-9 and Feb. 13-15; and "Drinking Habits" by Tom Smith on April 3-5 and April 10-12.Crosswords, romance, and a battle of wits in AcrossBy CHRIS KOURAPISSUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTOS BY CHRIS KOURAPISTwo unlikely companions, Janet (Jenni Elliott) and Josh (Ian Bisset) discuss strategies about solving crossword puzzles in Across.

It runs through Jan. 18. music were sent to their northern homes so they could practice on their own before they came back to Charlotte County. Videotapes demonstrating the show's choreography were even made and sent to the performers. By the time Fall came around, and everyone was back together again, the frequency of the rehearsals was increased. "I think they (the performers) do an awesome job with it," Reuter said. "It's really a big commitment, and the drummer, and guitar, bass and saxophone players, have to be at practice just as much as the singers." In addition to the three highlighted musicals, the group will also perform songs from "The Music Man," "Carousel," "Camelot," and other much-loved Broadway shows. Reuter says that for the Cul-Cen performers, this production is a way for them to show their love for the Cultural Center, "the place that friendship built." "This is a group of volunteers that comes out here," he said. "They range in age from 14 to somewhere in the 70s, and they enjoy singing and putting on this show to raise money for the Cultural Center." A Tribute to Broadway II takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16, Friday, Jan. 17, and Saturday, Jan. 18, at The Charlotte Cultural Center, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte. Advance tckets are $12.

E/N/C/V January 8 14, 2014 LIVE MUSIC Artist Concert Series opens in SarasotaThe Jim Wellen Quintet, with special guest Chris Brown, salutes the music of legendary jazz singer Lee Wiley with a concert from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Venice Art Center, 390 Nokomis Ave., Venice. Presented by the South County Jazz Club, admission to the concert is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Tenor sax player Wellen and vocalist Brown will be accompanied by Dick Reynolds on piano, Dave Trefethen, bass, and Johnny Moore, drums. One of the great jazz vocalists of all time, Lee Wiley performed through the s, s and s. She did prodigious recordings of standards by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rogers & Hart and others. She interpreted them in her uniquely intimate way, invariably backed by small combos of rst-rate musicians, such as Bud Freeman, Fats Waller, Billy Buttereld and her two RCA albums, West of the Moon (1956) and A Touch of Blues (1957), are standouts. Lee Wiley eectively stepped out of the limelight in the 1960s, except for a brief appearance at the 1972 New York Jazz Festival. She merited greater fame than was accorded her in her lifetime and since.Concert salutes music of legendary jazz singer Lee WileyPROVIDED BY THE SOUTH COUNTY JAZZ CLUB PHOTO PROVIDEDThe Jim Wellen Quintet, with special guest Chris Brown, salutes the music of legendary jazz singer Lee Wiley with a concert from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Venice Art Center, 390 Nokomis Ave., Venice.

January 8 14, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 19 AT THE THEATERVenice Theatres upcoming MainStage comedy is the s French farce Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti. The performance features a swinging bachelor named Bernard, who has three ances: one Italian, one German, and one American. All three are beautiful airline hostesses with frequent layovers. He keeps one up, one down and one pending until unexpected schedule changes bring all of the women to Bernards Paris apartment at the same time. His college friend Robert, visiting from Wisconsin, and housekeeper Berthe are charged with helping him avoid disaster. According to the Guinness Book of Records, Boeing Boeing is the most performed French play throughout the world. French and British audiences have loved Boeing Boeing since it was rst produced in 1962. The show ran in London for seven years and 2,000 performances. In Paris, it ran for 19 years. For whatever reason, American theater-goers have taken longer to get the joke. Broadways rst shot at Boeing Boeing didnt take o. In 1965 it closed after only 23 performances. The movie, star ring big-name stars Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis, was no rst-class hit either.

20 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 8 14, 2014 ROAD TRIPInstallation art is becoming synonymous with the Sarasota Museum of Art/SMOA, a division of Ringling College of Art and Design. Following on the heels of the museums street-side installation of a fantasy castle of twigs by Irish artist Patrick Dougherty, will be a colorful creation by Lisa Hoke inside the historic Sarasota High School on U.S. 41, just south of the intersection of Mound (U.S. 41) and U.S. 301. Area residents were invited to drop o their colorful cereal boxes, cardboard beverage containers, gilded gift boxes, produce boxes and more this fall for Hoke to use in her current installation in the old school building with strange blue window coverings. Except for the windows and the twig castle in its front yard, the high school looks like so many 1920s-era high schools that dotted the country from Pennsylvania and Ohio to Missouri and even in this case Florida. Hoke, who lives in New York City, has become known for her monumental works made entirely from cardboard packaging materials. According to a release from the museum, she has created work for museums such as Mass MoCA in Massachusetts, Rice University Art Gallery in Houston and the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art in Oregon. Her work has been shown in Raleigh, N.C.; San Antonio, Texas; Brattleboro, Vt., and North Adams, Mass. Her work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Johnson Museum, Cornell Museum, New Orleans Museum and Orlando Museum, among others. The artist generally works in modules about 4 feet square and then joins them together to t the specic space. The old high school is the intended permanent home of SMOA. Wendy G. Sturkis is the museums president. Were thrilled to oer our community another artistic transformation using unusual material to stretch their imaginations thanks to this remarkable artist, Surkis said in the release, adding that last years ARTmuse project with Patrick Dougherty was a triumph. Surkis said the intention of the new museum is to re-purpose the historic high school into a dynamic arts destination for innovative, contemporary visual art. Several area companies including the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and the Residences, PNC Wealth Management, New Balance and others, donated colorful cardboard for the artistic form of recycling project.Your trash is artists treasureBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR Boxes such as this are transformed by artist Lisa Hoke into large installation pieces such as the one to be displayed at the Sarasota Museum of Art Jan. 15 through Feb. 8.PHOTOS PROVIDED BY THE SARASOTA MUSEUM OF ART A completed installation work made entirely of discarded cardboard and paper packaging materials by Lisa Hoke.TREASURE | 21 481723 Call For A Free Brochure 941-488-9393 All Around Tours C ASINO T RIPS S IGHTSEEING T OURS D INING & E NTERTAINMENT O UTINGS HARD ROCK $ 20 Per Person IMMOKALEE $ 20 Per Person Lic# ST313558 www.AllAroundBus.com Included...Immokalee, Isle of Capri, Coconut Creek, Gulf Stream and one night accommodations with continental breakfast at La Quinta, $20 in free play and $ 11 in food vouchers OVERNIGHT CASINO Jan. 13-14, Feb. 10-11, Mar. 10-11 $ 99 ppdo $ 129 single Pt.

Her Gang consists of four accomplished musicians and their very supportive wives. "We are like family. Mike Hovencamp, Jerry Kecken, Don Reichert, and Eric Stockley and I love performing and not just for our own egos," she explains with an impish grin. "If you combine all our years of performing, you'll have a pot full. Classic Country, Motown, or rock n roll we do it all." Lead guitarist, Mike, played professionally in NY, NJ, and PA before moving to Florida where he now teaches guitar in the Port Charlotte area. Although his wife, Pat, works full time, she supports all the Gang's functions with her presence. Drummer, Jerry, the owner of Creative Business Ideas in Port Charlotte, studied piano and percussion. He plays a classic Rogers Londoner Drum Set XP-8. His wife, Meredith, cheerfully hosts the Gang's weekly rehearsals in their home. Rhythm guitarist/vocalist, Don, played in garage bands as a youngster before becoming employed in the New Jersey Green Street Recording Studio. He's the clown of the act whose antics keep audiences in stitches. Don's wife, Annette, keeps track of pictures and arti cles in the Gang's scrapbook. Bass guitarist and banjo player, Eric, works for the Port Charlotte Health Department as a specialty con sultant for folks at risk. He played ve-string banjo with the Up the Creek Bluegrass Band before joining the Gang. His wife, Melody, maintains their webpage: www. joyandthegang. com. Joy, a Florida Cracker (native Floridian) has been musical all her life. She sang in choral groups and served as a youth choir director before forming her own bands in Ohio and Florida.

January 8 14, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 23 LIVE MUSIC They sure are keeping you busy these days. It was just an o-handed comment by me. I mean, take a look at Gregg Allmans schedule. I did that just before a recent phone interview: Hes been touring with Gregg Allman Band all through the fall and winter, which includes a stop in Sarasota for an almost sold-out show at the Sailor Circus Arena this week. Then theres a huge tribute show Friday night at the Fabulous Fox Theater in Atlanta that includes his other group, the Allman Brothers Band. Hes planning to drop in often on the lming of a movie of his life story, currently being shot near his home in Savannah. Plus hes getting ready to record a couple of albums at some point this year, and will take his tour to Australia and New Zealand, before getting the Allman Brothers back for a month-long stand this March in New York. Going over these highlights, all I said was, They sure are keeping you busy. Thats when Gregg took the opportunity to set me straight. These days, when you say they, you mean me, he said, in kind of a low growl that actually sounded kind of bluesy over the phone. A little like John Lee Hooker. At this point in his career, Allman insists on calling the shots. At 65, with nearly 50 years in the business, he gures hes earned it. Thats consistent with the thoughts he put down in his 2012 autobiography, My Cross to Bear, which is the basis for the upcoming movie. The book covers Allmans life, his early bands, the formation and rise of the Allman Brothers Band, the death of his brother Duane, the rock superstardom of the 1970s, his marriage to Cher (and some others), the rough trip through the 1980s, his battles with narcotics and alcohol, the renewed success of the Allman Brothers Band, his complex relationship with one of its founding members Dickey Betts, his children, and the health problems that nearly killed him. Greggs account of it is all there, and taking control of his life is a big part of whats enabled him to keep going. Thats the way everyone wants it at rst, but it doesnt happen that way, he explained. After a while, you get control, thats the way it should be. Now, hes got a good lineup with the Allman Brothers Band, w hich gathers every year for a month of shows in New York, a few other dates and a couple of camp-out festivals, including the popular Wanee Fest in Live Oak. The rest of the year, Gregg plays with his own handpicked band and jams with old friends when the opportunity presents itself. One of those times will come this week, when guys like Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, Trace Adkins and many others gather at the Fox Theater for a tribute. The Allman Brothers Band will also perform. This is something Gregg didnt plan himself. A bunch of my buds got together and dreamed it up, I guess, Allman said of the show. It should be a good one. He said he wants to do an album of all-original songs this year, and recently wrote a song with saxophonist Mindi Abair for her upcoming album. He talked about getting ready to record another album with producer T-Bone Burnett, the other half of his 2011 hit record Low Country, a collection of blues classics. We were going to do that in December, but I have so damn much on my plate he said. The Gregg Allman Band consists of Scott Sharrard, guitar; Ben Stivers, keyboards; Steve Potts, drums; Jay Collins, horns; Ron Johnson, bass; Marc Quiones, percussion. He loves his home in Savannah, but he was looking forward to coming to Sarasota. I have a lot of good friends there. Its good to get back and play for them, he said. I like to sh theres good shing there, also. That sounds cool. I wouldnt mind go ing out looking for some snook or redsh with Gregg Allman. I guess if Gregg wants to load up his plate, thats what hes going to do. If he wants to go shing, well hes earned that, too. At the time of press, there was a slim chance that last minute tickets will be available. Check for last-minute ticket releases at circussarasota.org or call 941-355-9805. The showtime is 7 p.m. today (Jan. 8) at Sailor Circus Arena, 2075 Bahia Vista St., Sarasota. Tickets range from $35 to $45. Opening acts include Devon Allman Band and the Greg Billings Band.By CHRIS PORTEREXECUTIVE EDITOR almost sold-out show at the Sailor Circus Arena this week.

Thats consistent with the thoughts he put down in his 2012 autobiography, My Cross to Bear, which is the basis for the upcoming movie. The book covers Allmans life, his early bands, the formation and rise of the Allman Brothers Band, the de his brother Duane, the rock superstardom of the 1970s, his marriage to Cher (and some others), the rough trip through the 1980s, his battles with narcotics and alcohol, the renewed success of the Allman Brothers Band, his complex relationship with one of its founding members Dickey Betts, his children, and the health problems that nearly killed him. Greggs account of it is all there, and taking control of his life is a big part of whats enabled him to keep going.

"We like to interact with the audience and each other, and no two performances are ever the same." Joy, often labeled a "blonde energizer bunny," encourages audience participation. "I use a cordless mike and sing and dance with fans during a show. During special dance events, contestants compete in twist and conga competitions. People need to get away from their troubles to relax and enjoy themselves, and our music allows them to let the world go away, even if it's just for a little while," she said. Some of the Gang's popular tunes include "Blue Suede Shoes,""Under the Boardwalk," and "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." Upcoming performances for Joy and the Gang are on their website. From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Friday, Jan. 10, they'll be at the Moose Lodge in Pine Island. From 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17, they will play at the American Legion in Port Charlotte.

The Sun Classified Page 14E/N/C/Vads.yoursun.netW ednesday, January 8, 2014 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonand G rahamNolan MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: My mom is nearing 90 and recently developed an arthritic hip, which is curtailing her activities. She has Type 2 (no insulin) diabetes. The orthopedic doctor we saw gave her the choices of hip replacement surgery (no!), therapy or a cortisone injection. We almost proceeded with the cortisone injection, until I found out that it can elevate ones sugar levels. Im getting conicting reports of how high the levels can go and for how long. She is not overweight (132 pounds and 5 feet, 1 inch tall) and is allergic to sulfur and penicillin. She also takes medicine for high blood pressure. She is doing her own home therapy (keeping active including stair climbing). Any suggestions on the cortisone or other treatments to help her? D.C. ANSWER: I njection of steroids into an arthritic joint is both safe and effective for most people with arthritis. Her surgeon likely will choose a steroid that tends to stay in the joint longer, leading to more improvement and less systemic effects. The effect on blood sugar in people with diabetes usually is minimal and lasts two to three days. Her allergies and other medications should not interfere with the injection. Although exercise is a great way of treating the arthritis, she should take it easy the day after the injection to allow the medicine to stay in the joint as long as possible. H ip injections usually are done with an X-ray to make sure the injection goes in the right spot. DEAR DR. ROACH: B oth of my parents died with Alzheimers disease, and I have great fear of getting it myself. (Im 70, with worsening memory.) There has been r ecent news suggesting that copper intake may worsen or even cause the disease. Ive been looking for foods low in copper, but most of the ones I eat (beans, greens, nuts, whole wheat) are high in copper. How stringent a diet should I follow? P.M. ANSWER: C opper has been linked to an Alzheimers-type condition in laboratory mice. I recall a similar interest about aluminum and Alzheimers disease back in the 1990s, and it turned out not to be a signicant issue. Because copper is a necessary nutrient and present in many healthy foods, I would not try to reduce copper intake based on the current information. It is possible (but I think unlikely) that reducing copper intake eventually will be shown to r educe Alzheimers, but I wouldnt change your diet now. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 73-year-old woman, and I have blockages in the arteries of my legs and my carotid artery. I am unable to tolerate any kind of cholesterol medicine, and my doctor told me to try red yeast rice. I would appreciate any comments, since I do not know anything about it or any side effects. C.M.L. ANSWER: R ed yeast ri ce, a fermented rice product used in Chinese medicine for blood circulation, contains substances that act in a similar way to statin drugs. They generally are we ll-tolerated, and in one study lowered cholesterol levels by about 20 percent. It isnt clear whether this reduced risk of heart attack or stroke. Also, these products are not regulated, and have va ri ability in their effects. Fi nally, no long-term studies have been done to prove safety. That being said, because of your poor rea ction to other kinds of treatments, it may be worth trying if you understand these concerns. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

They do indeed absorb stray uids, but they start stinking within 24 hours at room temperature. This isnt good if its two or three days until garbage pickup. C.K., via email Im with you they are y ucky! But they do serve a purpose. The pad keeps the chicken (and meat) looking good by absorbing any liquid that may leak while it sits in the cold storage bin in the store. Y ou are right that it can become smelly if it sits in the garbage can for too long. Tr y this classic Heloise hint: Wrap the liner in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer until garbage day! M any readers do this with any food that cannot go down the garbage disposal and that starts smelling if it sits in the garbage can until pickup day. Just r emember to get it out of the freezer when garbage day arrives! HeloiseIndividual servingsDear Heloise: I make many soups and stocks during the winter. A good hint for making individual-serving-size portions is to pour the soup or stock into the cups of a mufn tin before freezing. After the soup is frozen, it easily pops out. Layla M. in Wisconsin This is a great way to freeze soups, especially if y ou have limited freezer space, while being able to have just one cup! After freezing, repackage the soups (in plastic freezer bags or containers) for a better t in the freezer. So up is my go-to meal for lunch or dinner, especially in the winter. I have a super (souper!) pamphlet, He loises Spectacular So ups, lled with favorite soup hints, plus recipes from friends and family members. To receive a copy, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (66 cents) envelope to: Heloise/ So ups, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. When freezing soups, be aware that soups with noodles or rice may change texture when reheated. Try freezing stocks, and then, after heating, add your favorite noodles or rice before serving. HeloiseUpside downDear Heloise: If you store your fru it on the bottom yo gurt upside down in the r efrigerator, then give it several good shakes before you open it, it will be so much easier to mix.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: When my daughter was 20, she met a guy who one minute showered her with roses and the next would beat her up. She stayed with him thinking she could change him, and became pregnant. On her 21st birthday, she tried to get away from him. He chased her up the road and w ent to punch her in the stomach. When she turned to avoid the blow, it landed, hitting the baby in the head and killed the child. Ab by once a beater, always a beater. I hope all women in abusive relationships will see this letter. My daughter is ne now, married and expecting. P ENNSYLVANIA MOM DEAR PENNSYLVANIA MOM: Im glad you wrote, because your letter reminds me that it has been some time since I printed the warning signs of an abuser. He re they are: (1) PUSHES FOR QUICK INVOLVEMENT: C omes on strong, claiming, Ive never felt loved like this by anyone. An abuser pressures the new partner for an exclusive commitment almost immediately. (2) JEALOUS: Ex cessively possessive; calls constantly or visits unexpectedly; prevents you from going to work because you might meet someone; checks the mileage on your car. (3) CONTROLLING: If y ou are late, interrogates y ou intensively about whom you talked to and where you were; keeps all the money; insists you ask permission to go anywhere or do anything. (4) UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS: E xpects y ou to be the perfect mate and meet his or her every need. (5) ISOLATION: Tr ies to isolate you from family and friends; accuses people who are your supporters of causing trouble. The abuser may deprive you of a phone or car, or try to prevent you from holding a job. (6) BLAMES OTHERS FOR PROBLEMS OR MISTAKES: It s always someone elses fault if something goes wrong. (7) MAKES OTHERS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OR HER FEELINGS: The abuser says, You make me angry instead of I am angry, or says, Youre hurting me by not doing what I tell you. (8) HYPERSENSITIVITY: Is easily insulted, claiming hurt feelings when he or she is really mad. Rants about the injustice of things that are just a part of life. (9) CRUELTY TO ANIMALS OR CHILDREN: K ills or punishes animals brutally. Also may expect children to do things that are far beyond their ability (whips a 3-year-old for wett ing a diaper) or may tease them until they cry. Sixtyve percent of abusers who beat their partners will also abuse children. (10) PLAYFUL USE OF FORCE DURING SEX: Enjoys throwing you down or holding you down against your will during sex; nds the idea of rape exciting. (11) VERBAL ABUSE: C onstantly criticizes or says blatantly cruel things; degrades, curses, calls you ugly names. This may also involve sleep deprivation, waking you with relentless verbal abuse. (12) RIGID GENDER R OLES: Expe cts you to serve, obey, remain at home. (13) SUDDEN MOOD SWINGS: Swit ches from sweet to violent in minutes. (14) PAST BATTERING: Admi ts to hitting a mate in the past, but says the person made him (or her) do it. (15) THREATS OF VIOLENCE: Sa ys things like, I ll break your neck or Ill kill you, and then dismisses them with, Everybody talks that way, or I didnt real ly mean it. Re aders, if you feel you are at risk, contact the N ational Domestic Violence Hot line at 800-799-7233 or www.thehotline.org.
