The end of historic B&Bs in Venice?


New homes planned

for Horse & Chaise

By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Another piece of Venice history is to be torn down
on the island but the developer has agreed to build
luxury homes representative of the island style.
The homes will be replacing a bed and breakfast,
which the owners have tried to sell for seven years
as a business, but those interested could not obtain
financial support to warrant the purchase.
Built in 1926, the Horse & Chaise Inn at 317
Ponce De Leon, one of only two bed and breakfast
locations on the island of Venice, has been sold

The Horse and Chaise Inn dates to the era of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers in Venice. The Inn will be torn down and
replaced by six homes.


Banyan House quietly

put on the market

By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

It appears that tourists to Venice no longer desire the
home comforts of bed and breakfast in a home setting.
With the closure of one of the final two bed and
breakfast establishments, that leaves only the historic
Banyan House Bed & Breakfast at 519 South Harbor
Drive. That has recently been put up for sale.
Chuck and Susan McCormick, innkeeper owners, are
advertising their property as a single-family home with
their own company, Banyan Realty. It is also available
to be kept as a bed and breakfast, run as a business or

Witness to genocide

The Wildlife Center of Venice,
a rehabilitation facility unique
to the area, is disputing the
claim that a planned housing
development in North Venice
won't displace wildlife.
Kevin Barton, director and
co-founder of the Wildlife
Center of Venice, located prac-
tically next door to a planned
Neal Communities subdivision
on Border Road, sent out a call
for action this month in the
WCV's newsletter, saying the
rezone "doesn't belong here."


The call to action generated
nearly 400 signatures, some
from out of state, on an elec-
tronic petition on Facebook.
"The WCV is the only facility
of our type in South County,
and is the largest in the
tri-county area," Barton said.
"Selling these parcels under
existing (zoning) code into
5- and 10-acre tracts would be
a much slower (development)
process and much better for
wildlife, and the Wildlife Center
of Venice."

In early 1994, violence
again appeared to be im-
minent in the east central
African nation of Rwanda.
Huge shipments of weap-
ons mostly machetes -
were rumored to be coming
into the capital, Kigali, which
had largely escaped the
effects of the three-year civil
war that had wracked the rest
of the country.
Radio programs carried
messages of hate directed
toward the Tutsi people,


threatening the uneasy truce
between them and the Hutus,
who had been forced to share
power with them.
There was talk of massa-
cres of Tutsis, who formerly
had been in power though
they made up only 14 percent
of the population.
Then, in April, a plane
carrying President Juvenal
Habyarimana, a Hutu, was
shot down by a missile as it Carl Wilkens, the only American to
was landing in Kigali, and all remain in Kigali, Rwanda, during
hell broke loose there, the 1994 genocide, travels the

Enough's enough.
That was the general consen-
sus of city leaders this week who
opted to limit emails on the city
server, citing spam overload.
Technically, the city email
server will not allow original
emails coming in to the site to
be seen.
Instead, the public will be able
to see only the responses made
by council members, as well as
the original email they respond-
ed to. Anyone who wants to see
every email sent to a council


member can do so by requesting
such from the city clerk's office.
The move overturns a decision
made two years ago by the
Venice City Council when it opt-
ed not to eliminate the incoming
emails from the public server.
In 2011, council members
were concerned the move at that
time might have been construed
as censorship.
The problem of spam has got-
ten so great, saidVenice Mayor
John Holic, that something had
to be done.
The city is now aligned with

Mobility-challenged can ride Le

Trail on a surrey


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Not everyone can get astride a
cycle or learn how to manage the
new recumbent, but the Legacy
Trail has been built for all to
enjoy. To this end, the Friends of
The Legacy Trail want to ensure
residents and visitors of all ages
can participate.
Regardless of whether a
person is physically active, they
can experience the thrill of this
specially created trail by joining
volunteers for a free surrey ride
on the Trail. The FLT Surrey
Program offers a way for mobili-
ty-challenged people to share in
the Trail experience.
Up to five passengers will be
seated in a Legacy Trail Surrey,
and three of those can pedal.


The Surrey goes about 4 mph,
no matter how enthusiastically
participants pedal. Convenient
straps have been attached to
the pedals to prevent feet from
slipping off.
"We are looking forward to the
day when we have a bride and
groom in the Surrey," said Sarah
Calabrese, the surrey volunteer
coordinator and promoter. 'A
blind lady and a 100-year-old
guy have been among our
passengers, some whom even
fall asleep on the ride."
The 30-minute ride starts
at Nokomis Community Park,
located at 234 Nippino Trail
East in Nokomis. Reservations
are generally not accepted for
the multiple departures each
Wednesday and Thursday. Riders
sign in at 9 a.m. Wednesday and


Thursday mornings. To accom-
modate more guests, volunteer
coordinators offer multiple rides.
"This year, we have just
updated the new afternoon rides
onWednesday from 1 p.m.,"
Calabrese said. "I or a Surrey vol-
unteer coordinator steers, and
with three other riders, pedal on
the 30-minute ride."
Calabrese welcomes people
who cannot get out on the trail
because they are housebound
or handicapped. She plans to go
to the independent retirement
communities to invite people to
participate.
While waiting for the ride,
guests can learn about The
Legacy Trail and Sarasota County
Parks in the indoor waiting
area. For more information, call
941-330-6800.

Comp plan conundrum gets fix


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
The Venice City Council
has gone to great lengths
to position itself to lease
the Circus Arena property,
cleaning up the property
that was closed down due
to unsafe conditions and
getting ready to solicit
requests for proposals to
develop the area.
Trouble is, the city
can't develop the site,


according to its own
rules.
At least not until they
rewrite the city's compre-
hensive plan, a long range
plan that guides growth
within the city.
On Tuesday, City
Council voted to transmit
a comp plan amendment
that would allow com-
mercial development in
the area known as the
Southern Gateway to the
city.


"This (existing) policy
hinders the city's abil-
ity to implement other
policies of the plan," said
city planner Scott Pickett.
"It's not fully consistent
with the intent of the
corridor."
"Frankly, this is to make
possible the redevel-
opment of the circus
property," Pickett said.
"All those (uses) listed (in
the request for proposals)
cannot be done without

AVenice youth who
allegedly committed a
burglary two years ago
when he was 17 was
arrested last week.
Kylor S. Proper, 19, is
facing burglary charges
as a juvenile after latent
fingerprints were re-
submitted in December
into the local Automated
Fingerprint Identification
System database, which
was upgraded in July of
2013.
The upgrade has result-
ed in a slew of new arrests
and prosecutions.

on Paddington Road in
Venice on Jan. 14, 2011.
The suspected burglar
apparently moved a hur-
ricane glass-mantle lamp
that was sitting on a shelf
just inside the window.
Fingerprint testing at the
time yielded negative
results.
The victim reported a
stolen laptop worth $860,
Sony camera worth $250,
iPod worth $150 and
Nintendo worth $250.
Proper, 2100 block of
Frederick Drive, Venice,
was arrested Jan. 10 and
charged with burglary of
an unoccupied dwelling.
He was released earlier
this week on a $7,500
bond.
Sarasota County Sheriff


Tom Knight announced
what was being called the
world's most up-to-date
and accurate fingerprint
matching technology in
August.
"We are already getting
hits on crime scene prints
that were previously
unidentified in the old
system," said Brenda
Viana, AFIS Supervisor.
"Even low quality prints
that couldn't be searched
are being identified on
the new system."
The 10-year old AFIS
system was upgraded to
the Morpho Biometric
Identification Solution,
or MorphoBIS, from
MorphoTrak, the FBI's
fingerprint provider.

species, lightening bugs,
crawdads, kingfishers,
alligators, a million frogs
and insects, flying squir-
rels, kestrels, bats, otters
... basically everything in
the area," Barton said.
He believes this par-
ticular 151-acre tract is
indispensable to securing
a wildlife corridor to the
Myakka River tracts and
that alone makes it worth
preserving.
"This is the buffer,"
Barton said. "They're
starting with the worst
piece of (land to develop).
The rest will fall like dom-
inoes if they succeed."
Boone pointed out


that Sarasota County has
already set aside huge
amounts of conservation
lands, mostly on the
other side of the Myakka
River east of the proposed
development.
"This county has tens
of thousand of acres that's
in public ownership. Very
few counties on either
coast have as much land
as Sarasota County set
aside for wildlife and
public recreation," Boone
said. "These are the kind
of issues that often come
up when new develop-
ment is proposed further
inland. In this instance,
some of the houses that


are along the Myakka
River were built 50 years
ago. That urban boundary
was set 50 years ago.
We're not talking about
pushing out any further."
Boone said the current
proposal is similar to
others made in the early
2000s. Those, he said,
"stalled out during the
recession and are now
coming."
The property was
annexed and then
designated through the
city comprehensive plan
for future development
at under five units per
acre under then-mayor
Ed Martin, a slow growth


proponent.
Neal Communities
and the city Planning
Commission met last
week in a "pre-confer-
ence" to discuss Pat Neal's
idea to develop the parcel
with 253 single family
homes.
Barton wants his own
"pre-conference" with the
commission to make his
case against changing the
zoning.
"I know he (Pat Neal)
is well-respected in the
community as a devel-
oper and politician but
from a wildlife rescue and
rehabilitation point of
view, I am all too familiar


with these developments
from those in Lakewood
Ranch south to Sawgrass
down the road from us,"
Barton said. "As these
developments go in, the
native wildlife go out,
often on a stretcher."

Exes send each other to the emergency room


A former boyfriend and
girlfriend, who still live
in the same residence
together and have a child
in common, got into a
fight over who the better
parent is.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
On Sunday near mid-
night, Jessica M. Berry, 32,
and her former boyfriend
were drink-
ing heavily
and arguing
loudly in the
garage of a
residence
on Jamaica
Road in
Venice.
BERRY The
ex-boyfriend allegedly
said, "You're a piece of
sh-- mother."
The mother responded
by attacking the victim's
face, digging her fingers
into his mouth.
He responded by
ramming her into a
vehicle that was inside
the garage.
Berry's boyfriend, who
witnessed the attack and
pointed the finger at his
girlfriend for instigating
the brawl, broke up the
fight.
Both were transport-
ed to Venice Regional
Bayfront Health ER for
injuries to the face and
head area.
Berry, who was deter-
mined to be the aggres-
sor, was charged with
domestic battery. Bond
was not available.

Victim goes to bar
after attack
Deputies were sum-
moned to a bar on
Tamiami Trail to investi-
gate a case of battery.
According to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report:


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


The victim and her
live-in boyfriend of eight
months, Billy Gene Todd,
57, got into an argument
as they ar-
rived home
from dinner
at a bar/
restaurant.
While she
was trying
to open
the door, a
verbal argu-
ment ensued. The victim
said she was struck in
the back of the head by
Todd, punched several
times in the face, then
kicked in the head. After
the physical altercation,
Todd left the area.
The victim walked to
a friend's house. The
friend drove her back
to her residence so she
could "clean all the
blood off her face and
change clothes," accord-
ing to the report. The
victim then apparently
went to Wally's Pour
House, where she called
911.
The deputy observed
the victim's injuries
while at the bar, then
went to the couple's
residence where Todd
was asleep. He told
the deputy they were
arguing because she said
he was looking at other
women in the bar. She
got mad and hit him in
the back of his head, he
said. The officer did not
observe any redness or
marks consistent with
being struck. Todd also
denied ever punching or
hitting the victim.
Todd, 1700 block of
Banyan Drive, Venice
was arrested Friday


evening and charged
with domestic battery.
Bond was set at $25,000.

Bust made for

jail on $75,000 bond
after he was caught
selling narcotics used
in drug abuse treatment
from his home.

Small marina with deli to open in Nokomis


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

It is almost eight years
since the popular Dona
Bay Marina, Honoluana
Tiki Bar and Restaurant
and Dona Bay Outfitters
closed and were torn
down at 505 South
Tamiami Trail on the
northwest side of Dona
Bay Bridge during the real
estate boom.
The two-acre property
had been acquired in
January 2004 to make way
for construction of the
18 luxury condominiums
known as HarborVillas
at Dona Bay, which


currently occupy the
location.
But now there is some-
thing new in on the way
for the area.
On the southern side of
the bridge at 690 South
Tamiami Trail at the
junction of Sunset Drive,
a new marina is under
construction.
On the small .38-acre
location will be the new
Dona Bay Docks with a
.33-acre water marine
park. There are four
mooring slips and addi-
tional space for transient
boaters to stop and use
the facility. At street level
are parking spaces for


nine vehicles and racks
for four bicycles.
Because of the flood
zone, the 696-square-foot
deli sandwich shop is on
the second floor. Outside
is a waterfront deck with
seating where guests
can relax and watch the
sunset over Dona Bay
while enjoying a bever-
age or something to eat.
There is ADA access to
the second floor deli and
restrooms.
Rowco Investments
LLC of Kansas purchased
the property in October
of 2005 by for $290,000.
Rowco is owned by Bill
Rowland of Bayshore


Road in Nokomis.
"I am looking for kayak
or pontoon boat rentals
to lease the facility and
possibly operate the deli,"
Rowland said.
The established
Honoluana Tiki Bar &
Restaurant was acquired
in January 2004 by David
and Valerie Thompson. It
was torn down, and they
reopened the Honoluana
at Venice Airport in 2005,
having converted an
existing restaurant.
Subsequently, they sold
it, and it closed about two
years ago, but apparently
there are plans for a
re-opening.

Bay Docks at 690 South Tamiami Trail at the junction of Sunset
Drive in Nokomis.


Business focusing on pool cages opens local branch


Recently opened is
the new branch office
of Florida Sales &
Marketing at 101 James
St. near Land of Sleep on

Rotarians honor their

elder statesmen


By ROGER BUTTON

Local Rotarians partici-
pated in what was deemed
a triple celebration.
They recognized the
67th anniversary of the
Venice Nokomis Rotary
Club, they honored the
oldest active past presi-
dent Rotarian, Dan Boone,
and they recognized the
50th anniversary of Past
District Rotary Governor
Dick Dodderidge.
Rotarian Julia Stalnaker,
the 2013-14 club presi-
dent, made a presentation
of flowers to Dodderidge.
He recalled being invited

luncheon meeting in 1964.
At that time, the club,
founded in 1910, had 150
members.
"On this day, a Thursday
for a similar luncheon
meeting, I became a
Rotarian and I am proud
to celebrate my 50th
anniversary," Dodderidge
said.
He subsequently came
to Venice where a few
years ago he served as
District Governor.
"Today was the day
to honor all of our past
presidents and current
president," Boone said.
"In my opinion, it is the
president that leads the
way. The reason this club
has been so successful all


these years is because of
the past presidents and
their officers."
Boone is the oldest
active president of Venice
Nokomis Rotary Club.
He joined in 1963 and
was president in 1974-75.
Also present at the recent
celebration was the
oldest member of the club,
Rotarian Jim Hill, who
joined on Sept. 1,1962 and
was president 1978-79.
Closing the ceremony,
Club President Julia
Stalnaker said, "It has
been a wonderful expe-
rience so far and nice to
have the backing of the
club. Without the mem-
bers, we would not have
the club."


Florida Shores becomes Stonegate Bank


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
One of the most suc-
cessful community banks
in Venice in the past seven
years will officially close
today, Wednesday,
Jan. 15, subject to regulato-
ry approval.
The elegant offices


of Florida Shores Bank
Southwest at 500 U.S. 41
Bypass North will reopen
Thursday morning, Jan. 16,
as an office of Stonegate
Bank.
The holding company
Florida Shores Bancorp,
which includes four
locations on the West
Coast and three branches


on the East Coast, has
been operating as Florida
Shores Bank- Southeast.
Shareholders voted to
accept the approximately
$48.8 million buy-out by
Stonegate Bank announced
last September.
Founded in 2007, the
Venice bank had
$600 million in assets in


August of 2013. Following
the opening of the
Englewood office in 2010,
a second branch office was
opened in Sarasota last
year, and Jim Kuhlman,
president & CEO of Florida
Shores Bank, expressed his
intentions at the time to
open a third branch office
in Bradenton this year.


The most successful
Venice community bank
in Sarasota, Manatee and
Charlotte Counties with a
top Baer Financial five-star
rating is expected to have a
new marquee and signage
in the weeks following the
changeover.
At the time of the
announcement, Kuhlman


reassured customers the
takeover would be the most
beneficial asset to them.
"Although the name will
change, I and my team are
here with the core group
of employees who have
been with me since 1996,"
he said. "The people who
meet and greet will remain
the same."

been dangerous. The U.S.
Embassy told Wilkens try-
ing to bring them out with
him would put everyone's
life in jeopardy.
"We just didn't consider
another option," he said.
"We didn't know we would
actually come to a point
where we might not see
each other again."

100 days
At the time, the decision
didn't look as risky as it
would turn out to be. They
thought tempers would
cool after a week or two
and it would be safe to
reunite.
The slaughter went on
for 100 days.
"None of us knew it
was going to last so long,"
Wilkens said.
Partly, they had been
reassured by the presence
of UN peacekeeping forces
there to enforce a cease-
fire in the civil war. But
the troops were ordered
to withdraw when the
slaughter started.
More than 3,000 people
had sought refuge at a

Council members were
partly responding to spam
emails hawking services.
Holic called the Venice city
server a "media haven" for
bloggers and others who
regularly pick up com-
ments and replay them,
extending the discussion.
Council members also
said they were reacting to


school guarded by UN
forces, Wilkens said. When
the troops began to pull
out, young men lay down
in front of the transports
to try to keep them from
leaving.
"One soldier testified
that the first time he fired
his gun was to clear a
path," Wilkens said.
With no one to guard
them, the people were
sitting ducks. Most were
slaughtered.
"For these people, it
would have been better if
the UN hadn't been there,"
he said. "They could have
stopped the genocide."

Payoffs
Wilkens didn't leave their
house for three weeks,
while the worst of the vio-
lence raged all around. The
government had imposed a
24/7 curfew that kept most
of the population indoors.
"The only people on the
streets were the people
doing the slaughter," he
said.
He slept in the hallway
of the house, under his
mattress for a little extra
protection, for 88 days,
even after it was "safe" to
go out.
"The more brick walls
between you (and the
people with guns), the
better," he said.
Periodically, Hutu
soldiers would come to

the sheer volume of daily
advertisements on subjects
that often don't pertain
directly to Venice.
Council Member
Jeanette Gates ended the
discussion with a precau-
tionary comment.
"One man's spamn is
another man's treasure,"
said reminded them.

SPINAL BALANCE
If you've been feeling pain or discomfort in your back or in
some other part of your body, it may be caused by a structural
imbalance in your spine that is interfering with the functioning
of your nervous system.
Nerve impulses flow from the brain through the vertebrae in
your spinal column, connecting in a complex network to all of
the body's tissues, muscles and vital organs. Misalignments
that cause a structural imbalance in your spine may interfere
with the flow of nerve impulses and cause pain and discomfort
in your back as well as in other parts of your body.
One of the instruments your doctor of chiropractic may use
in correcting spinal misalignments is a small hand held device
designed to deliver a controlled, gentle thrust to the affected
area. This helps correct the spinal misalignment and relieve
the irritation to the spinal nerve that is causing discomfort.

the house looking for
Tutsis. Each time, Wilkens
managed to turn them
away, assuring them no
Tutsis were present.
"They perhaps saw the
humanness," he said.
Once, he said, he resort-
ed to bribery, paying about
$100 to end the question-
ing. An ADRA colleague
who raised chickens would
use them as a payoff.
"You just did what you
have to do," Wilkens said.

Network of thieves
When he did venture
out, he checked in with
the local administrator,
Col. Tharcisse Renzaho,
to ask how ADRA could
help the people of Kigali.
Renzaho gave him a pass
to authorize him to travel
to the ADRA office and a
police escort to help him
get there.
Eventually, Renzaho
would allow him to help
get food and water to a
local orphanage, where
children were suffering
from dysentery. Asked
what might motivate that
humanitarian gesture, stu-
dents offered explanations
ranging from Renzaho
positioning himself to
have something positive
to his credit if he later
faced prosecution to the
possibility that he hoped
Wilkens might get killed
carrying out the mission.

Tuesday's action by
council is considered a


Wilkens had a simpler
reason.
"Maybe it's just because
he was asked," he said.
"I had to believe that the
others the bad guys -
still had the power to do
something good.
"It was a network of
thieves and killers who
helped me to help the
orphanage."

A difference
All the while, thanks to
ham radios, Wilkens man-
aged to stay in daily contact
with his family, a thousand
miles away in Kenya.
"I don't know how I
would have handled it
if we didn't have that,"
TeresaWilkens, his wife,
said. "I avoided other news
sources. For me to survive, I
didn't think I needed to see
the worst."
Nor did their children.
The Rwandan Patriotic
Front took control of
the country in June and
ended the slaughter. After
a seven-month break, the
family was able to return to
a more peaceful Rwanda
and the children found that
most of their playmates
had survived.
"It's nice the genocide
wasn't their last impression
of Rwanda," Wilkens said.
Although they don't talk
about the experience very
often, "they have not given
us any reason to believe


stopgap measure, as the
citv is moving to another

they've been traumatized."
Their kids grown, Carl
and Teresa travel the
country now, telling his
story wherever they are in-
vited to go. After spending
Monday at VHS, they were
off to Miami in their motor
home, in which they'll
live for pretty much the
whole year, other than "a
couple of nights in March
and a couple of nights in
October" at their home
base in Spokane, Wash.
Wilkens uses the horrors
of the genocide to offer
a positive message in his
talks with students.
The thinking behind the
genocide was "we're going
to make this place better by
getting rid of somebody,"
he said. "That's not the
answer."
But it's important to
remember that the people
thinking that thought "are
not maniac, suicide-bomb-
er-type people," he said
- they're human beings
acting out of fear or anger.
Using negative labels to
describe people keeps us
from looking at someone
and asking, "What else is
he?" and perhaps realizing
how much we have in
common.
'As we spend time
together, we find out how
we can make a differ-
ence together," he said.
"Everybody wants to make
a difference."

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


Warning shot law another step in wrong direction


Pretty soon, Florida could be a
haven for duelists who want to settle
their differences.
That's the path our lawmakers are
taking as they prepare legislation to
make it legal to draw a gun and fire a
warning shot.
Already, Florida has a Stand Your
Ground law that makes it legal to
shoot someone if you feel threatened.
That legislation was pushed through
by lawmakers who failed to properly
vet the law or its unforeseen con-
sequences. It's a case of groupthink
where nobody bothered to raise
objections because they wanted to toe
the party line.
The reasoning behind both laws is
obvious. We just feel the reasoning
is skewed and shows a lack of confi-
dence in a legal system charged with
deciding if a person is acting in self


defense. The court system worked for
decades before someone decided we
needed to protect people who want to
take potshots at others.
In a sense, the new warning shot
bill is a no-brainer. If you can already
legally shoot someone when you
feel threatened, why would it be a
problem if you just flashed your gun,
or fired a warning shot? Of course, the
key is that you are good enough with
a firearm that a warning shot is just
that a warning.
The legislation was drawn up
after a Jacksonville woman, Marissa
Alexander, was sentenced to 20
years in prison for firing a warning
shot at her estranged husband. The
sentence was mandated by Florida's
tough 10-20-Life law that makes is an
automatic 20 years to life sentence
for anyone discharging a gun while


committing a crime.
An appeals court threw out
Alexander's sentence and she will have
a new trial this year.
State Attorney Bill Cervone, who
represents the Gainesville district,
said lawmakers were only hearing
one side of the case. He said people
who are in prison were put there by
a judge and jury after they claimed
self-defense. He agreed with our
thinking that a judge and jury should
be able to determine the truth- and
we have faith that our judicial system
works.
Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, the bill's
sponsor, disagrees. He said Floridians
have a right to defend themselves and
that includes brandishing a firearm
and even shooting at the person they
believe is threatening them.
Evers brought up the case of a


74-year-old man in the Panhandle
who was sentenced to prison because
he had a shotgun visible during a
confrontation.
Cervone countered with the logic
that perhaps the crime of aggravated
assault should be removed from the
list of crimes drawing a mandatory
10-20-Life sentence.
When the Legislature convenes, this
bill will surely get plenty of attention.
Florida already has garnered nation-
al attention after the shooting death of
teenager Trayvon Martin.
If our lawmakers insist on leaning
toward legalizing the use of firearms
in confrontations, then the best idea
may be to legalize duels and charge
a fee to attend. The money could be
used for education.
At least some good would come out
of all the shootings.


Our tough old hero

forges ahead


It's no surprise we all love
stories about the tough old
birds who won't quit, who get
stronger and more fiercely
committed to life the closer
they get to the end.
My father-in-law is 88, a
World War II hero, and still a
golfer (when he's not down
with "some damn 'it is' or
another"), though he's outlived
foursome after foursome.
Of course by this age he's got
his share of serious physical
problems but his biggest
recent challenge was having
to put his wife into a nursing
home for her worsening case
of Alzheimer's disease.
Joanne began getting
paranoid and delusional and
angry with Ray when he didn't
see "reality" as she did. For
example, someone was going
to rob and kill them in their
home so Joanne frantically
insisted they get dressed, pack
a suitcase, and wait at the end
of the driveway for a neighbor
who was going to rescue them.
How much energy does
anybody have for episodes like
this?
Ray and Joanne have been
married nearly 30 years, since
both lost their first spouses. He
has three grown children, she
has five. The whole blended
family now agreed that it was
just too dangerous for 88-year-
old Ray to continue trying to
care for Joanne at home.
So the family found a
relatively nearby nursing home
with an Alzheimer's unit -
that accepted Medicaid. And
though in violently angry
moments, Joanne fought phys-
ically to break out of this new
"jail," there were no feasible
alternatives.
For months now, Ray has
been making the 15-mile trip
to the nursing home three or
four times a week.
On Joanne's "bad days," her
sadness, anger, and disorienta-
tion overwhelm him emotion-
ally. But though he's heartbro-
ken, Ray is patient with her
and explains the situation over
and over until she calms down.


After he tenderly combs her
hair, tucks her in for sleep,
and kisses her goodnight, the
tough old soldier goes home
and can't keep from crying on
the phone with my wife or one
of the other children who call
him every night.
And, in rotation, some
member of this compassionate
and now quite organized
family support group visits the
parents each week.
But tough as it is for Joanne
to be in the nursing home, it's
still hell for Ray to be alone in
a houseful of memories, even
with little Jade, their sweet
Chihuahua puppy.
After a few weeks alone, he
throws himself into the task
of reorganizing the house. Ray
has always been a jack of all
trades, but this has to be his
toughest job ever. To me, the
renovation of his living space
clearly signals a courageous
commitment to staying alive.
What an obviously useful and
therapeutic way of handling
great loss.
How proud we are of our
tough old soldier, more than
ever now that we know he
needs to cry a little now and
then.
Christmas rolls around. Even
with little Jade in the house,
he's still too lonely. He decides
that for the new year, he wants
a bird.
To bring new life into your
house when you're 88 seems
daring and exciting to me,
another clear signal of Ray's
commitment to forging ahead.
We splurge and get him a
pineapple-cheeked conure. He
names the bird "Bubba."
Soon, the baby bird he want-
ed to teach to talk bites the
tough old bird's hand when he
reaches in the cage to feed it.
He wants to make sure Jade
won't attack Bubba if it flies
onto the floor, so he tries to
teach them to be friends by
putting the bird on the dog's
head. Needless to say, this
strategy doesn't work.
We urge Ray to slow down
and let the animals learn to
adapt to each other, but the
tough old soldier with a heart
of gold has no time to waste
in recreating his peaceable
kingdom.
Through tears, our hero asks
his daughter if we can adopt
the baby bird. But our condo
regulations state that no pets
are allowed.
And that's where this heroic
saga of loss and survival stands
as of today.

WHAT SHOULD VENICE DO ABOUT THE BEACH POLLUTION PROBLEM?
CALL US AT 9412071111.


Bah-humbug Experience. I
had a bah-humbug experience
shopping onVenice Avenue. I
spent the day after Christmas
shopping for birthday gifts,
stopped to have an unexpected
lunch with friends and then
shopping. Had a wonderful
afternoon. Spent over $200 on
gifts and returned to my car only
to have a ticket. Many communi-
ties halt fines between Christmas
and NewYears to encourage
local shopping. If I had gone to
a mall, I could have used my
coupons and parked as long as I
liked with no fear of a $25 fine.
Why? So violating the right
of way and killing someone
with your car is not considered
reckless driving? Unbelievable.
Help the Animals. I'm calling
about the ordinance for pet
shops and pet stores selling
puppies. Absolutely, I thought
Sarasota County had it. They
decided to make an ordinance
against selling these animals and
now they are sitting back on the
fence. I think the smartest thing
they did was to get involved in
that and stop it. These puppy
mills need to be stopped! If
you took a tour through any of
these places and these people
who say that they get their dogs
from reputable dog sellers, they
do not have them under good
conditions. There are very few
breeders that will do that. Real
breeders. Come on Sarasota. Get
it together. It's bad enough with
the homeless. The animals now
need your support. Please, please
stop these puppy shops!
Doing What's Right. Want
to express my opinion on the
untreated bacteria on the
beach. I read the article and am
adamantly opposed to this. I
can't imagine anybody in the city
would do such a thing. This is an


Let 'em


Have It
intellectual decision that should
be made based on the best thing
for everybody. The other option
is filtration through the ground,
a viable solution. The article says
you are saying, "No." You should
not be saying "No." You are not
doing justice for the people that
live here in Florida to do some-
thing like this. Please reconsider
doing this because it is not for
the good of the community.
Water Alternative. The beach
problem: I am a taxpayer in the
city ofVenice and I say, "No."
Whatever happened to no
taxation without representation
or not doing anything without
asking the city first. Let's all dig a
hole in each of the front yards of
the City Council members, and
let's put a dump in their yard and
see how non-toxic they think
that is. Don't ruinVenice Beach.
Find another alternative. Going
underground, the way it was
suggested, is a better alternative.

traffic control in SouthVenice on
Tarpon Road. This is a quarter
of a mile down to Alligator off of
SouthVenice Boulevard. SCAT
buses are the worst speeders
of all. Need speed signs up on
Tarpon. Need stop signs on
Tarpon and Crane and Hialeah
and Crane.. .that would slow
some of these vehicles coming
down at 50 or 60 mph. SCAT
needs to stay up on 41 where
they belong instead of flying
down these back streets. Please
help as much as possible.
Bikers & Lights. Those yellow
hands that are in the warning
lights for walkers and bikers not
to cross at that time, they seem
not to work about 90 percent
of the time. I think that hand
should be something like a blink-
ing red light. The only problem
with this is that it may confuse
drivers. But bikers and old peo-
ple, if you get close to them in a
turn, they act like you're at fault;
and don't ever yell at one of them
and call them jaywalkers.
You get all kinds of results from
that. They've got to think of this
problem in the future when they
decide to do the lights over. It
just ain't working' but maybe the
people ain't working' either.
Beaches & Bacteria. For years,
our family has taken walks along
our wonderful beaches inVenice.
Also, we wondered about the
outflow pipes on Venice Beach.
No other beach we've ever been
on has such pipes. When Venice
Beach was closed for the past
few years due to high bacteria in
the water, it seemed logical that
the problem could be related to
those outflow pipes.
It was discovered recently
that this truly was the case. Now
we understand the Venice City
Council wants to dump the
untreated bacteria water into an
eco-bio swale on the beach in-
stead of in the Gulf. We are totally
against this. Please, City Council,
explore other options such as a
filtration system. The water does
not belong on either the beach
or in the Gulf. The best solutions
are not always the quickest or
the cheapest. Our beaches are
precious. Make the right deci-
sion. Keep our environment safe
and healthy for the long term.

combination business and

and restaurant licenses.
Built in 1926 by Robert
Marvin, head of real estate
for the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers, it
was his family home. It is
reputedly now one of the
last, large, grand old homes
remaining on the island of
Venice.
The large Banyan tree out
front was planted around
1928, a donation from
Thomas Edison who stayed
there. It is understood a
national tire company
acquired Banyan trees from
India, believing they could
make rubber from the sap.


Venice, but the developer
needed all six lots to make
it work," she said.
In 2006, they had it on
the market as a business
and not one person came
forward. They took it down
for sale but this spring
decided again to sell it.
That's when developer Gary
Roberts owner of Bamboo
Builders of Sarasota came
forward.
She told him he was
dealing with a very blessed
piece of property and if he
will honor it, then it will do
him well. He is taking out
all 31 trees but each will
be replaced. Within a year,
they will build six homes in
the northern Italian style,
and already there is interest
from buyers.

It did not work out so they
donated the trees.
Banyan House was
named in 1936 and it is
known to have operated
as a guest house operated
by a schoolteacher in
1960s. The McCormicks
purchased Banyan House
in 1986, re-opening it as a
European-style bed and
breakfast guest house
in the winter of 1987,
having carried out major
renovations.
The walls of the six-room
property are a foot thick,
and it was a hurricane
shelter in the 1930s and
1940s. Adjoining the
solarium is the elegant
living room withVictorian
furnishings around the

"I know he will be

with something as elegant
as and more beautiful than
what is here now," she said.
She has to be out by Feb.
23 and is arranging a large
estate sale on Feb. 7, 8 and
9. Preparing it is quite a
monstrous job, arranging
43 years of collectibles and
equipment. Additionally,
she is hoping the builder
will allow them to have a
demolition sale in order
to preserve some of the
older pieces, glass knobs
on doors, the bannister, the
front door and other items
inherent to the building.
It was agreed part of
the demolition permit
process was for James

and a vacant lot behind the
inn on Nassau Street South.
They have been in

Lemon Bay High
School saw a big
lead disappear in the
fourth quarter, losing
to Venice 61-60 on a
last-second shot Saturday
afternoon.
The Indians' John
Cokley hit a 3-pointer
with 2.5 seconds left for
the game-winner. The
ball bounced up off the
rim and came back into
the basket.
Lemon Bay tried to
get off a desperation
shot, but Montrel
Jackson's attempt
missed the mark, and
Venice came away the
winner after trailing by
16 points entering the
final quarter.
"We made too many
mistakes in the final
quarter," Lemon Bay
coach Sean Huber said.
"I think we made 20
turnovers. But give all
the credit to Venice.
They rallied back and
did a great job."
Lemon Bay led 47-31
entering the final
quarter and held that
16-point lead for two
more minutes before
the Indians started
chipping it away. They
tied the score on a
field goal by Cokley to
make the score 58-58,
but Lemon Bay's Brian
McGill made two free
throws to put the Manta
Rays ahead before
Cokley's game-winner.

SUN CORRESPONDENT

Laura Hackett is glad to
be back.
She was recruited
by several basketball
programs, including out-
of-state, after graduation
fromVenice High School
but decided not to play
last year.
"I was feeling kind of
burned out," she said.
During the summer,
she worked as a camp
counselor coaching bas-
ketball and re-evaluated.
"I saw how much I
loved it," she said. "It
made me want to play
again."
Hackett trained
during the summer,
then indicated to coach
Holly Borchers of Florida
Southern College, one of
her original suitors, her
desire to play.
Hackett is now one of
three post players in a ro-
tation for the Moccasins
(4-9), whose losing skid
has reached seven.
"She is a very ag-
gressive offensive post
player," Borchers said.
Hackett is among
eight newcomers to the
13-player roster, which
is missing four of last
year's top five scorers.
The players continue to
battle despite the losses,
Hackett said.
"We're still fighting,"
said Hackett, a soph-
omore academically.
"We're getting closer and
closer to winning. Some
really key players are out


Lemon Bay's Joe Garza avoids the Venice defense to make a
basket.


The Manta Rays were
hurt when leading
scorer Joe Garza fouled
out early in the final
quarter. He finished
with 14 points, nine of
which came in the third
quarter when the Manta
Rays outscored the
visitors 20-11. Jackson
and McGill both added
10 points.
Venice (10-7) rallied
with a balanced attack.


Brent Store scored 16
points and Dom Marino
made 14 as they kept
the Indians fairly close
up to halftime. But
Cokley and Langston
Provitt got hot in the
final quarter to push
the Indians past Lemon
Bay.
Cokley scored all
eight of his points in the
final quarter and Provitt
had six of his eight in


(with injury). We have to
do what we can."
The influx of young
personnel has made her
year-long absence less of
an issue for her. She said
she was a bit intimi-
dated about the college
game, a feeling that has
subsided because she's
learning alongside other
newcomers.
"I feel like everybody's
starting from scratch,"
said Hackett, whose
season-high seven
rebounds came in the
opener. "I'm getting
more confident. I feel I
definitely can play with
everybody."
Hackett has played
every game without a
start, averaging a team-
low 8.9 minutes. She also
averages three points
and 2.5 rebounds per
game.
"The biggest thing she
needs to work on is her
conditioning," Borchers
said. "She's going to need
even more time to get in
the best shape."
Hackett agreed the
layoff hurt her condition-
ing, though it is "fixable,"
as her coach said.
"Taking a year off when
everyone else is training
is huge," Hackett said.
"The more I play, it'll get
easier. It's all kind of the
process, of coming back
into it (basketball)."
Hackett has been
effective as a secondary
contributor, provid-
ing multiple, even
consecutive, games of
productivity.


She had seven points,
five rebounds and two
assists during a Nov. 30
win over University of
Puerto Rico-Bayamon.
She had a season-high
nine points and four
rebounds in 13 minutes
during a blowout loss
to Nova Southeastern
University in the follow-
ing game.

Tarpons shock


Indians in playoffs


By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER

Prior to Monday,
Charlotte High School
hardly played any games
at full strength.
The Tarpons were
missing players to injury
in almost every game
this season, including
as many as seven in one
game. But their fortunes
finally changed for a
District 4A- 11 game
against Venice, and
Charlotte showed that
its complete team is a lot
better than the one that
finished in last place in
the district.
The Tarpons jumped
to a 2-0 lead in the first
15 minutes against the
second-seeded Indians
and used a late goal to
nail down a 4-1 victory. It
was a far cry from the two
regular-season matches
between the two teams,
which Venice won with
ease.
"Over the last six years
that I've been here at
Charlotte High School, for
whatever reason, when
you say the word 'Venice,'
everybody gets scared,"
Tarpons coach Toni

Ivankovic said. "I know
what our girls are capable
of when they play at the
level that they're capable
of, the skill and the
heart they have. I know
they can beat teams like
Venice. It just takes them
all playing and playing
hard and they did that
tonight."
Ivankovic said district
games always come
down to heart, and that
Taylor Doeble and Heidi
Ruth are her two players
who can will the team to
victories.
That became clear five
minutes into the game
when Doeble received
a long pass just outside
of the box, dribbled
into the diving Indians'
goalkeeper, jumped over
her and sent the first goal
into the back of the net.
Ten minutes later, Ruth
launched an unblockable
shot into the top of the
net from outside of the
box to give Charlotte a
2-0 lead, underscoring
that this game wouldn't
be like the previous two.
After a goal byVenice's
Sarah Mattson, Charlotte
regained a two-goal lead
just before halftime.

Doeble took a shot with
pace that was saved, but
Savana Burdick-Perez was
in the right place to score
on the putback.
The Charlotte contin-
gent in the crowd, which
matched the Venice
contingent, watched
the second half with
excited nervousness as
the Tarpons controlled
the ball and kept Venice
from getting easy
opportunities.
After 35 minutes of
scoreless soccer in the
half, Magen Lowe ended
the tension by slipping
past the defense and
sliding a goal into the
corner of the net to seal
the win.
When the referee blew
the whistle to end the
game, the Charlotte girls
celebrated by hugging
each other, while tears
filled the eyes of many
Venice players, some of
whom had just played
their last game.

district semifinals on

SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN
Sis Blecman, of Venice
placed an advertisement
in 1998 in Miniature
Collector magazine, a
national publication for
dollhouse and miniatures
collectors. She was look-
ing for kindred spirits to
form a club in the Venice
area.
Fortunately for her, one
of the ad's readers lived
right around the corner
and came knocking at her
door, expressing interest,
then brought along one of
her friends, with another
joining them.
And that was the
beginning of lifelong
friendships as well as
sharing creative talents,
expressing them in 1-inch
to 1/4-inch scale.
Marilyn Klein, now
president of Best Little


Things (BLT), says she's
the titular head of the
group through default.
No one else wanted to be.
But they each share their
particular talents when it
comes to projects.
When any wood is
needed, Joan Turner
says, "My husband can
do that," and at the next
meeting, she'll show up
with perfectly cut pieces
for the project du jour.
Turner splits her time
between their home in
Virginia and Florida, with
her daughter and grand
daughter taking them on
frequent visits to the Gulf
Coast.
Blecman noted that
each member has a
special talent.
"For example, Marge
Holman can make some-
thing out of nothing,"

Asolo's opener is a wee bit touching


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Brian Friel's
"Philadelphia, Here I
Come!" is more than a
coming-of-age story.
Directed by Frank
Galati, the Asolo Rep pro-
duction opened Friday in
the Mertz Theatre where
it will play in rotating
repertory through
April 12.
Friel's work takes
place on one night at his
family home in the fic-
tional town of Ballybeg,
Ireland. Employing two
actors to portray both
Gareth "Gar" O'Donnell
(Christian Conn) and
his alter ego or sub-
conscious self (Bernard
Balbot), the work shows


some of the things that
might have influenced
the young man in his
decision to move to
Philadelphia.
We meet Gar's father,
and employer, S.B.
"Screwballs" O'Donnell
(Douglas Jones); the
family housekeeper,
Madge Mulhern (Peggy
Roeder) who has looked
after the young man since
the loss of his mother
when he was a youngster;
and his former girlfriend
and lost love Kate Doogan
(Amanda Lynn Mullen).
Other characters who
likely influenced him are
former teacher Master
Boyle (David Breitbarth),
Senator Doogan (Mark
Konrad), somewhat
self-absorbed Canon


O'Byrne (Andrew Sellon)
and Gar's three somewhat
shallow friends: Joe
(Jefferson McDonald),
Ned (Brian Nemeroff)
and Tom (Cale Haupert).
Jones, a longtime
(28 years) member of the
Asolo Rep Company, is
one of the production's
strengths. Seeming to
remove his teeth at the
dining table, he injects
some comedy even as he
manages to poignantly
portray a father who
is both a somewhat
cold-hearted employer
but also a sad man who
will miss his son yet
cannot find a way to let
him know that.
Breitbarth, an Asolo
Rep veteran of
18 seasons, portrays Gar's


former teacher as a sad
sort who might even be
sad that he lacked the
courage to make such
a move save for the fact
that he is more in need
of an immediate if not
lasting cure for his woes
in the form of a drink.
Roeder, in her fourth
season as a guest artist,
manages to be both
surrogate mother and
loyal housekeeper to the
O'Donnells.
Gar and Gar's subcon-
scious or alter ego are
the sum and substance
however, with timing
the tie that binds. Conn
and Balbot manage that
almost magically so that
the private Gar manages
to share his feelings

'Donuts' is superior


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Venice Theatre's Stage
II production of "Superior
Donuts" is a tasty treat in
many ways.
Written by Tracy Letts,
the play takes place in a
small doughnut shop in
Chicago's Uptown neigh-
borhood, circa 2009-2010.
The shop is owned by
Arthur Przybyszewski
(Jerry Zezas) who seems
to have lost interest since
his divorce and, more
recently, the death of his
former wife, Magda.
As the story begins, a
black cop, Officer James
Bailey (Brandon Michael
Fleming), and a white
female cop, Officer Randy


Osteen (Margie Spies),
have arrived because of a
break-in and vandalism
at the shop.
Actually the first person
on the scene was Max
Tarasov (Neil Levine),
a Russian immigrant
who wants the space in
order to expand his own
business in the same strip
center. Color and eth-
nicity is a big part of this
play which, in addition
to using strong adult
language, also involves
many substories relating
to prejudicial thinking.
Adding some comedy
relief from the beginning
is Lady Boyle (Lynne
Buhle) who seems to be a
quasi-homeless old wom-
an who perhaps also has


a drinking problem and
lives in her own world.
Next to arrive before
the reopening of the
shop is Franco Wicks
(Brandon Michael Butler)
a young black student in
serious need of a job. He
seems quite intelligent
and in fact has written
a book, "The Great
American Novel," yet it
turns out that he has a
rather serious demon
on his back, in the form
of bookie Luther Flynn
(Steven O'Dea) and his
enforcer, Kevin Magee
(Jeremy Guerrero).
Also appearing is
another Russian, Kiril
Ivakin (Dan Cavanagh)
an associate of Max.
Guerrero was an


1 Ith-hour substitute
for Jim Abde and, as he
always does, acquitted
himself quite well.
Ably directed by Kelly
Wynn Woodland with
an excellent set by Kirk
V. Hughes, "Superior
Donuts" has an excellent
cast that mostly com-
prises actors with plenty
of experience yet also
includes two actors mak-
ing their debuts Spies
and Zezas. Spies acquits
herself quite well and by
the second act, seemed
quite at home.
Zezas, in the main role
of the doughnut shop
owner, never missed
a beat and performed
as though he has been
doing it all his life. Having


recently sold a landscap-
ing business and working
on a Ph.D. to go with his
MBA, Zezas not only had
plenty of lines to learn
but also managed timing,
a fight scene and several
soliloquies like a pro.
Talk about a strong cast
- this is it.
Others on the creative
staff included lighting
designer Brian Freeman,
sound designer Dorian
Boyd, costume designer
Stephanie Gift, fight cho-
reographer Peter Ivanov
and combat coordinator
Jeremy Guerrero.
This work is so
well-written and this
production so well-staged
and acted that the strong
language fades into the


background as the story
takes its rightful place at
center stage.
"Superior Donuts" is
performed in the Yvonne
T. Pinkerton Theatre,
with seats on three walls.
It will continue through
Jan. 26, with performances
Tuesday-Saturday at 8 pm.
and Sundays at 2 p.m.
Venice Theatre is at 140
W Tampa Ave., on the is-
land, in downtown Venice.
Leave the children at
home because of the adult
language and themes but
do not miss this show.
It is that good.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Between 150 and 200
area residents turned out
for a panel discussion
on North Port's two
springs Saturday morning
at the Morgan Family
Community Center.
"This is an awesome
turnout, and an unprece-
dented event because we
have so many experts,"
said John McCarthy, inter-
im director of SCOPE who
moderated the Ancient
Waters Foundation forum,
adding that organizers
capped the panel at 10,
but they could have had
so many more.
During the forum a
four-hour event the
experts stressed the im-
portance of preservation,
further historical study,
potential educational
benefits and the need
for new research, espe-
cially the kind that could
establish a hydrological
baseline to note how
Warm Mineral Springs
and Little Salt Spring may
change as time passes.
Representatives of the
Friends ofWarm Mineral
Springs a group not
affiliated with the founda-
tion currently are suing
the city, citing environ-
mental damage to the
Springs sinkhole because


of plastic sheeting at
the bottom. However
foundation president Bill
Goetz says the plastic is
protecting megafauna
(large animal) remains.
"We need new data to
compare to the old before
we can say what's being
(environmentally) impact-
ed," said Sarasota County
Senior Hydrologist Cliff
Harrison, adding tempera-
ture changes, water quality
and flow in both springs
all need to be measured.
"If we don't know what's
going on with the water
quality, we don't know how
it impacts the artifacts."
A 10,000-year-old
human skull once was
discovered inWMS, and
some artifacts in Little
Salt have been dated
to 12,000 years. Other
artifacts have yet to be
uncovered.
According to John
Gifford, archaeologist,
previous University of
Miami professor and
director of science at Little
Salt; and Steve Koski, ar-
chaeologist and site man-
ager at Little Salt, WMS
and Little Salt are 30,000
and 14,000 years old,
respectively. WMS, jointly
owned by the city of North
Port and Sarasota County,
currently is closed. Little
Salt, which has limited
accessibility, mostly only

to researchers, is in the
process of being deeded
from current owner UM
to Sarasota County.
"There are all kinds of
great questions that need
to be answered. We have
10,000 years of informa-
tion in these springs,"
said Michele Cotty-Loger,
Ancient Waters board
member and archaeologist
with Cardno ENTRIX, an
environmental consulting
company. "Going forward,
it would be really nice to
draw researchers to the
area, and students from far
afield. We're standing on
the threshold of important
decisions that will impact
our community and our
grandchildren."
North Port resident Lori
Lunz thought the event

was fabulous.
"I didn't expect such
a turnout," she said.
"There's so much in-
formation, and these
people (on the panel)
are so knowledgeable.
Their visions of what
could possibly come out
of this, the education for
kids and stuff, it's very
heartening."
Shari Kosmerl, aVenice
seasonal resident who
also hails from Seneca,
N.Y, was at the forum
with her husband Frank.
She also was glad to see
a large number attend,
since she's talked to many
year-round residents who
don't even know the two
springs exist.
"It's like talking to
someone at home who
says, 'I've never been to
Niagara Falls,'" she said.
"It's in your backyard -
how could you not know
it's here?"
Following a break
during which a com-
plimentary lunch was
provided, the panel
took questions from the
audience, including:
how the area might tap
into money Gov. Rick
Scott wants to spend
on tourism, building an
all-encompassing infor-
mational website on both
springs, and how to best
protect the hydrology of
both spring sites.
The Ancient Waters
Foundation, which
sponsored the event, is a
not-for-profit corporation
that facilitates education
and scientific research
of Florida's freshwater
springs and waterways,
in order to preserve them
for posterity.

Golden oldie on



top of world


hen I last visited
Dick Collier
years ago, I
wrote that he could likely
whip my younger but
sorrier behind in singles
tennis.
Nothing's changed.
Dick is 90 1/2 now, but
he's still got game.
And the medals to
prove it.
Last October, Dick
traveled from his home
in Englewood to the
World Senior Games in St.
George, Utah, and walked
off with a gold medal in
singles tennis, age group
90-94.
OK, there was only one
other competitor. And he
took Dick to three sets.
With a 10-8 tie-breaker.
"Honest to God, it's as
tired as I've ever been
playing tennis," he said
last week.
"When we traded sides
we would take so long,
one time the tournament
director came over and
asked us if we were
finished."
So they didn't ex-
actly torch the court,
speed-wise.
But still, 90?
"I got to thinking about
all the sports I had done,
how I had hung in there
all this time and was
reasonably successful.
No matter where I was, I
always participated and
did better than most," he
recalled.
An understatement,
really. Amazing is more
like it.
Dick is a tall, slender
athlete. He's always been
a player, one sport or
another.
He grew up playing
tennis in San Diego. He
also was a high-jumper
in high school, and ran
cross-country and played
lightweight tackle foot-
ball. (He still weighs 155.)
Dick joined the Navy
as an officer trainee (the
V-12 program) in 1942
and was sent to Southern
Methodist University.


There, he was a walk-on
on the basketball team.
"I was really excited
because I hadn't played
much," Dick said.
Before he could play,
he was transferred by the
Navy to Georgia Tech. He
made the team there too.
Still, he admits, his hoops
game had holes.
One coach, Bob Polk,
once told him:
"'You're one of the best
shots I ever saw in my
life, but you can't dribble,
you can't pass and you
can't guard."
Polk took him under his
wing and Dick flourished.
He was a starter for
three years. He was SEC
scoring leader in the
1944-1945 season. He
was honorable mention
all-American twice. He
also was on the tennis
team for four years.
Pretty darn good.
Still, Dick said, "You've
got to realize that during
the war the only guys who
were at school were either
V-12 (trainees) or 4E So
you really didn't have a lot
of competition. I could do
pretty well against a 4E"
After school, Dick
worked as an aerospace
engineer in San Diego,
Atlanta and St. Louis. He
also kept playing tennis.
Key to his game was a
"power slice" he mastered
early at Georgia Tech.
"Everybody hates it.
It's nasty, but it's effective
and it's really why I have
had any success at all,"
he said.
Plenty of success.
On a wall in Dick's
house is a bulletin board
with the 18 medals he has
won since 1999 at state,
national and world Senior
Games. He has another
16 plaques. Awhile back,
he gave away 100 tro-
phies. No room.
Dick loves the World
Senior Games. He plans
to return this year. He
may even return after he
retires the tennis racket.
Just to hang out.
And he figures he may
have enough room on the
bulletin board for another
decade of medals.
"I'll be almost 100," he
said.

ASOLO'S
FROM PAGE 1

and thoughts with us
seamlessly as the story
demands.
Balbot worked with
Galati in last season's
Asolo production of
"1776." Galati did well to
cast him in this role.
As Gar's somewhat
shallow (or are they?)


friends, McDonald,
Nemeroff and Haupert
inject additional humor
and pathos to the story,
while also having the
chance to play meaty, if
smaller roles.
The overall story is an
important addition to
the Asolo Rep's ongoing
five-year American
Character study as it
shows both the kind of
person who grapples
with the decision and


then comes to America
to become part of its
fabric, even as this story
shows those who likely
would never come.
There will be sev-
eral opportunities to
participate in story
circles (Jan. 25 and
29), talkbacks (Feb. 4
and March 29), meet
the actors (Feb. 9 and
March 16) and pre-show
conversations (Feb. 13)
for "Philadelphia Here I


Come." Admission is in-
cluded with play tickets.
Talkbacks follow
the performances. At
11 a.m., Wednesday,
Jan. 29, Galati will speak
in the Cook Theatre about
this production. Cost to
attend Galati's talk is $5
per person. Call the box
office at 941-351-8000
for tickets to Galati's talk
and for the specific times
of the other offerings
mentioned here.


"Philadelphia, Here I
Come" continues in ro-
tating repertory through
Apr. 12 with evening
performances at 8 p.m.
and matinees at 2 p.m.
on selected Saturdays
and Sundays. The Mertz
Theatre is in the FSU
Center for the Performing
Arts, 5555 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota. Tickets are
$29-$69 per person for
adults. Students
25 and younger with


ID with an adult can

percent off. Student Rush

even greater savings.

can you.
For several years, the
county has sponsored
a vow renewal event
at which couples may
renew their vows at
sunset in a non-denomi-
national service at Siesta
Key Beach. Couples are
asked to make a small
donation and to arrive
early if they will be par-
ticipating. For details,
visit SCGov.net/Parks.
As Valentine's Day
2014 will fall on a Friday
and the Our Town
section usually goes to


press on Thursday for
Saturday's paper, we
need to get a jump on
the holiday.
We are looking for
Venice area residents who
plan to participate in this
or some other romantic
Valentine's Day event.
We would like to
interview and photograph
you during the first week
in February if not before.
Anyone celebrating an

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

4 K952 K AK92 0 A7 74 1093

Right-hand opponent opens one club.
What call would you make?

A Many experts today believe that a
hand like this, with four cards in each
major, full values to enter the auction,
but flawed by holding only two cards
in the unbid minor, is worth a take-
out double. Should partner bid
diamonds, pass and hope he has a lot
of them. Double!

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4 K J 1091R2AKQJ98 0 Void4872

The bidding:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1 146 2Y2 24
9
What call would you make?

A Without the spade overcall on our
left, we would bid four hearts and
expect to have good play for it. The
overcall is a red flag and we should
take heed of it. Bid three hearts.
Q 3 North-South vulnerable, as
South, you hold:

6A8642 ?AKQ43 ,0 Void4A74

The bidding:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
20 Pass ?
Partner opens with a weak two-bid.
What call would you make?
A A void in partner's suit is a good
reason to be cautious, but this hand is
just too good. Should he hold three
cards in either major, we should have
a fair to excellent chance for 10
tricks. Bid two spades, forcing, and
bid three hearts next if he doesn't
raise spades.
Q 4 East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:
6AK75) A9740 J4AJ92


The bidding:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14, Pass I1
?


EAST
Pass


What call would you make?

A Should you and your partner
employ splinter bids as part of your
system, this hand is perfect. Bid four
diamonds, showing game-forcing
values and at most one diamond. Bid
four hearts if that gadget is not
available.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

*J 64 A 8 7 0 9 7 5 2 6 A 9 2

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

A Negative double, one no trump
and two clubs all have serious flaws.
This hand is too strong to pass, so
you must do something. We like the
negative double as the least flawed.
Should you not play negative
doubles, perhaps one no trump is
best.
Q 6 East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

*Q- KQJ100 AKQJ84AI105


The bidding:
SOUTH WEST
10 Dbl
?


NORTH EAST
Pass 2A


What call would you make?

A The opponent's bidding is most
annoying, but this hand has
tremendous potential and we have to
be aggressive. Bid three hearts.
Double is a good second choice, but
should partner hold three-card
diamond support, he won't bid hearts
with only four of them. Your most
likely game would be missed.

Former cabaret singer moves to Nokomis


By LEIE CARMODY
SPECIAL TO THE
GONDOLIER SUN

Marianne Koerner,
classically trained singer
and pianist, and her
husband, Richard, moved
to Nokomis this autumn,
bringing her performing
and teaching skills with her.
After an early career in
Broadway musicals and
many television shows,
Koerner "retired" to raise
her three sons. Three de-
cades later, she returned
to performing.
Persuaded by a cabaret
coach that she was a
"natural" as a solo cabaret
singer, she tried it and
soon found herself ad-
dicted to the genre. She's
been delighting audienc-
es ever since in New York
and San Miguel, Mexico,
her second home, with
her original shows.


For almost two de-
cades now, she has also
been conducting "So
You've Always Wanted To
Sing?" workshops, where
students enjoy a friendly
and relaxed environment
in which they are both
audience and partici-
pants. Based on a master
class format, the course
focuses on both the
mechanics of singing and
the techniques for getting
to the heart of a song and
communicating it.
Koerner provides
caring criticism and guid-
ance for improvement.
"There is tremendous
value gained from
observing other singers,"
she says. "We all have
the same challenges:
vocal tension, inadequate
breathing and, mostly
fear; fear of allowing
ourselves to relax and
connect deeply with the

Her first workshop
in the Venice area will
begin Tuesday, Jan. 21, 7
to 9 p.m. This six-week
course will be held at the
Unitarian Universalist
Congregation of Venice,


1971 Pinebrook Road.
Students are asked to
bring to the first class a
song they want to sing.
Tuition is $120.

10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with
activities for the entire
family. All festivities will be
held at Frances T. Bourne
Jacaranda Library, 4143
Woodmere Park Blvd.,
Venice. Events are free and
open to the public.
On Friday, Bob Vedder
of the Library Foundation
for Sarasota County and


former publisher and
general manager of the
Venice Gondolier Sun
will serve as master of
ceremonies.
Featured speakers
include Charles Hines,
Sarasota County
Commission chair; Sen.
Nancy Detert, District
28; Andrea Taylor, library
manager; and Scott
Dowdy, president of the
Friends of the Library.
On Saturday, Jan. 25,
the library will host aWii
tournament and have
face painting for teens,
plus a bounce house,
games and art activities
for children.
The library has been
serving Venice residents
since its construction in
1994. In the late 1980s,
Sarasota County Library
Advisory Board members
and Venice residents
recognized the need for
expanded library services


there, and with funding
from a voter-approved,
one-cent surtax for new
capital improvement
projects, Frances T.
Bourne spearheaded the
project.
Bourne, a lifelong
literacy and education
champion, who helped
incorporate the Friends
organization in 1992, was
a leader on its original
board of directors, and
shared her knowledge
and passion to ensure the
success of the library.
The library's grand
opening was held Jan. 15,
1994. On Dec. 10, 1995,
the Sarasota County
Commission renamed
the library the Frances
T. Bourne Jacaranda
Library in honor of the
woman who worked to
create it. The Friends of
the Library continues
that legacy of service
as the primary sponsor


of the 20th anniversary
celebration.
To learn more about
the library or the 20th
anniversary celebration,

Center at 941-861-5000.

shorthair with
striking black and
white markings and
a sweet warble of a
meow. She is named
after the Greek
Goddess Athena, the
goddess of wisdom,
courage and inspira-
tion. It's a pretty lofty
title to aspire to but
that's okay because
Athena is special.
She is independent
but very friendly and
LOVES to be petted.
Her favorite hobby is
lying in a sunbeam.

Blecman said. "Doris
Franke is proficient in
making polymer clay
figures. Eleanor Langlois
loves needlework and
making miniature
baskets, while Sue Seiffert
will turn her ability to
work with wicker and
straw into teaching a
hat class at our next
meeting."
Blecman's ability to
work with ribbon in


making trims will be part
of finishing their project.
Club members number
about 10, both perma-
nent Venice residents
and snowbirds. And they
are looking for those
interested in joining their
group, which meets once
a month at the Francis T.

4143 Woodmere Park

With LED lighting, you
don't need electricity. Just
place them on the ceiling
of a bedroom and press a
button and the light is on.
Klein said the members
of BLT look forward to the
inspiration the show gives
them plus the supplies
and accessories offered
for future projects and
those already in progress.
Some of BLT members'
projects will be part of
the Exhibit Room at the
show, which features
pieces from the personal


collections of members
of both the Sarasota and

'Willie' wants a nice, quiet home
Willie is a 19-pound Shih Tzu mix with a black and white coat. He has never been to a
shelter before so it's a bit scary for him. But once he warms up he gives lots of kisses. He
would prefer a quiet forever home with no children to make him uncomfortable. He is
housebroken, crate trained and piddle pad trained. He was free roaming in the home and
has good inside manners. He enjoys playing fetch and car rides. Visit Suncoast Humane

It's Oscar time! insighton

scar nominations for the 86th Annual Academy Awards (2013 films) will
be announced tomorrow and the Annual Awards Show will be televised
on March 2. I've viewed plenty of films yet probably missed some good
ones that were only at "selected theatres"and may be viable award contend-
ers. Meaning, like you, I'll have to wait
for the rental or TV broadcast.
Nevertheless, I have selected my own
2013 personal favorites. Here they are:

Best Motion Picture of the Year
"Gravity." It's simply the most
creative, interesting and well-executed Sandra Bullc
film to come around in years. Also, it
should grab an Oscar for Best Achievement in Cinematography.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role
Sandra Bullock in "Gravity." She's great at comedy, but her more serious part
in "Gravity"puts her at the top of my list.


Best Performance by an Actor
in a Leading Role
Tom Hanks in "Captain Phillips!'
He's tremendous in a tough, emotion-
al role from one of the best movies of
the year. Kudos also to veteran Bruce
Dern for his career-topping part in
"Nebraska."


Best Performance by an Actor in a
Supporting Role
Jake Gyllenhaal in "Prisoners." He may
not even get nominated but was certainly
engaging as a detective in this highly
suspenseful film.
Best Performance by an Actress in a
Supporting Role
Jennifer Lawrence in "American Hustle." Not
just in this movie, performances by this young


ovie critic Tom Lovasli .,Iii h5 is

actress really light up the screen

Monty's Restaurant & Pizzeria re-surfaces


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Friday, Aug. 13, 2004, was a day that no one in the
Charlotte County area will ever forget. It was then
that Hurricane Charley took that fated right turn into
the Peace River.
Most of the county's residents were affected in
some way by the monster storm's direct hit, and
Monty's Restaurant & Pizzeria owner Diane Caputo
was one of them. On that day, she lost her livelihood
of more than 20 years.
"My father had offered me the opportunity to
open my own restaurant in 1983, and he financed it,"
Caputo said. "Over those 22 years, I had made plans
to enlarge the restaurant and then Charley hit."
Winds and water from the hurricane destroyed the
building her restaurant was in, and because of the
horrific damage all over the county, it was difficult to
find contractors to help her rebuild it. For a time, she
tried running the restaurant from a building across
the street, but for Caputo, it just wasn't the same.
"I just decided to rebuild it on the original spot,"
she said. "We broke ground in April 2013, but the
planning of it took years."

A couple of Monty's
longtime customers
are happy their
favorite restaurant
has reopened.


Monty's Restaurant &
Pizzeria has reopened in
its original Punta Gorda
location.


Two weeks ago, Caputo opened the new Monty's,
and so far, things are going very well. This version
of the restaurant is quite a bit bigger. In the original
spot there were about 2,200 square feet, while this
location has almost 4,000. And there are both inside
and screened outside dining options, as well as inside
and outside bars.
As far as the menu goes, Caputo says that if you
were a regular at Monty's before, you will be happy to
see all of your favorites, like the pizza, salad bar and


veal and seafood entrees. One of the major changes
has been the drink menu.
"The past week and this week, we've been
introducing our special martinis," she said. "We
have Italian Wedding Cake, the Ultimate Chocolate,
Cucumber, Apple/Ginger and Honey martinis. I'm
always daring to do something exciting."
Caputo has also added gluten-free choices to her
menu, taking quite a bit of time to research foods for
her customers with dietary concerns.
In the future for Monty's will be more specialty
drinks and happy hours, complete with entertain-
ment. For one of the first performances on the
schedule, Caputo has booked local favorite Paul
Cottrell from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19.
During his show, Monty's will feature 2-for-1 well
drinks, white and red Sangria, some specialty Long
Island Ice Teas, coffee drinks, margaritas and more.
Caputo says that introducing fun new items
on her menu is her way of rewarding all her loyal
patrons who have supported her during the years of
transition that have led her to this point.


"All my customers have been very patient and
understanding," she said. "I wanted to make this (new
location) a restaurant for all different groups of people,
and try to keep the prices as reasonable as possible."
Monty's Restaurant & Pizzeria is at 2515 Tamiami
Trail in Punta Gorda. It is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sundaythrough Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to
10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information,

Family's hard work behind Plaza Mexico's growth


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Hector Alvarez and his family do not waste any
time.
In May of 2011, they opened their first Plaza
Mexico Restaurant Bar & Grill in Woonsocket,
Rhode Island, a year ago, they opened their
second one in Port Charlotte and two and a half
months ago, they opened their third location in
Venice. You might say things have been going
well.
"We saw the opportunity and we said, 'We have
to open one in Venice,'" Alvarez said. "My brother
and sister run the one in Port Charlotte, I am here
and we have another brother at the restaurant in
R.I."
Alvarez said he had grown up in the restaurant
business, working in
his first job at 15 .
as a dishwasher for
his uncle's place
in North Carolina.
Through the years,
he would test out
various restaurant
jobs, to get a feel
for all aspects of the
business.
"I've always
liked working hard,"
he said. "In 2005,
we worked with a
different restaurant
in Port Charlotte. It
was the only Mexican
restaurant in town and the line was always around
the building. I was a server there."
The family saw a need for their restaurant in
Port Charlotte, and they saw the same hole in the
marketplace in Venice. What they offer fans of
that type of food is authentic family recipes from a
family-run business.
Alvarez is an active owner, and you never know
if he'll be in the kitchen (he is the chef) or in the
front of the house greeting guests, or even busing
tables.
"I can do it all," he said.
He says that a couple of his menu favorites also


seem to be the most popular among the rapidly
developing Venice clientele. The Fajita Vallarta
consists of beef, chicken, shrimp and chorizo,
and is served with guacamole salad, beans and
tortillas. Alambres are one of the specialties of
the house, and has grilled chicken or beef, with
cheese, onions and peppers, and are served with
rice, beans, pico de gallo and tortillas.
In the front of the 160-seat restaurant is a long,
granite bar, where you can get drink specials each
day and a two-for-one happy hour from 3 p.m. to
6 p.m. There is plenty of space for functions in the
restaurant, but Alvarez says that he does quite a
bit of outside catering as well.

Family fun at the DeSoto County Fair


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The DeSoto County Fair, now in its 61st year and scheduled
to open on Friday, Jan. 17, is all about the kids. If there was ever
any doubt about the primary focus of the fair, one need look no
further than the numbers.
"We have 150 kids showing animals this year," said Ray Smith,
director of the fair. "There are 70 some kids showing hogs, 23
showing steers and then some showing breeding animals. It's
fun for the kids, and keeps them occupied and out of trouble."
This fair was chartered by the State of Florida in 1954 as a
nonprofit organization, and has never received a dime of govern-
ment funding. But each year, it gives the young people of DeSoto
County an opportunity to show off their talents and skills, and
somehow manages to give out seven $1,000 scholarships to local
high school seniors.
"We support our county's youth," Smith said. "We even have
local high school juniors and sophomores who do our parking
and we give them the proceeds."
The livestock exhibitors have worked many months in order
to prepare their animals for the fair. They have been recording
their animal's progress in their project book, while also keeping
financial records, developing feeding programs and maintaining
the medical records of their animals. Besides hogs and steers, the
exhibitors are also showing rabbits, chickens and goats, as well
as breeding animals.
Also, some of the children will be displaying their artistic skills
at the fair.
"For the 4H kids that don't show animals, there is a place
inside where they can show what they've done" Smith said
"We 3a have a3 oininity (railft It: h where arinyonr e (can

for elementary school, middle school and high school-aged
participants.
And what would a county fair be without rides and games?
"We've used the same midway for the past 20 years," Smith
said. "It's Hildebrand Midway of Fun and they do a great job."
Some of the attractions planned for the midway include a
Giant Gondola Wheel with spectacular LED light show, the Ring
Of Fire, a Five-Story Roller Coaster, Drop Tower, Gravitron, Orbitor,
an incredible Zip Line, an expansive Kiddie Land and, of course, a
multitude of games of skill and foods from around the world.
Smith says that the size of the DeSoto County Fair may not
be on the scale of some of the larger surrounding ones, but this
is one fair that has its heart in the right place.
"We're mainly a little fair that lets the kids exhibit animals
in our barn," he said. "What we do is strive to support the
youth of our county."

'S'Wonderful!' Pops Concert to


feature Dick Hyman


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Venice Symphony, now celebrating its
40th performance season, is featuring the mus'(
of George Gershwin this weekend at the Churcl
of the Nazarene in Venice.
In a first"Ken's Comments" session on
Jan. 8 at the Venice Public Library, Maestro
Kenneth Bowermeister, conductor of the Venice
Symphony, spoke about how Gershwin's ability
to"manipulate all forms of music"set him apart
from other popular jazz musicians of his era.
"Gershwin died tragically at the age of 38,"
explained Maestro Bowermeister,"but his music
still speaks to us verywell. I loved Gershwin's
music since I was a kid and was surprised to
learn that unlike most jazz musicians of 1920s
and '30s, he was classically trained. At an early
age he studied musicand attended concerts led
by big name composers in NYC, but he was alsc
fascinated with and influenced by honky-tonk
styles. He began by recording dozens of songs
on early piano rolls, and he became a piano
accompanist for Broadway musicals."
Critical reaction to Gershwin's early com-
positions was mixed. Was he writing opera or
Broadway songs? After the initial failure of"Porgy
and Bess, now considered Gershwin's greatest
folk opera masterpiece, Gershwin returned to

An act this good usually only comes to
town during tourist season.
The late columnist Forrest Duke described
them as having "the flash of Liberace, a lot
of Jerry Lee Lewis, and the piano artistry of
Ferrante and Teicher."
Renowned entertainer/pianist Victor
Borge called them "two of the most talented
pianists I have ever seen."
Variety said, "Razzmatazz pizzazz, the
pair perform on twin Baldwins, on the
keys as well as on top of the Grands. It's
one of those super-flash acts with
elements of hot style, bombast,

Acting and Action at Lemon Bay Playhouse


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday veteran actors
Rita Corn and Jack Rabito will be performing in a
special fundraising production of "The Gin Game," the
Pulitzer prize-winning play by D.L. Coburn that first
starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn.
Often referred to as a tragic comedy, the play takes
place during a weekly gin rummy game in a state-run
retirement home. Fonsia Dorsey and Weller Martin
are residents who develop a friendship while playing
cards. Fonsia is new to the game; Weller is an expert.
Tension develops when Fonsia's beginner's luck
begins to grate on Weller's nerves.
This is a playfor adults who appreciate poignant
scenes about lonely people attempting to connect
by sharing personal stories that they've never shared
with another soul. Both actors agree that the play's

success can be attributed to a gifted playwright and
a great script.
In October they performed as Fonsia and Weller at
the Langdon Playhouse in Port Charlotte to sold-out
audiences and rave reviews.

Weller Martin (Jack
Rabito) is shocked when
Fonsia Dorsey (Rita Corn)
displays her winning
hand in "The Gin Game"
being performed on
Friday, Jan. 17 through
Sunday, Jan. 19, at
Lemon Bay Playhouse in
Englewood.


Proceeds from all three shows at the Lemon Bay
Playhouse will go toward reducing the mortgage on
the Playhouse Annex. Several years ago, the Board of
the Lemon Bay Playhouse found itself in desperate
need of more space. When a building next door at
80 W. Dearborn Street became available, they leased
the building as a storage facility and rehearsal hall.
In 2013, it was decided that it was more cost
effective to purchase the property, and a 10-year
mortgage was taken on for $85,000. A strategic plan,
developed in 2012, is to pay off the mortgage as soon
as possible, upgrade their present facilities, and plan
for further expansion.
In addition to producing seven plays, four
Showcase Productions, and a series of Readers
Theater Outreach Programs each year, the Lemon Bay
Playhouse, now in its 27th year, offers adult acting
classes, children's summer acting camp, and college
scholarships. Prior to every performance, a 50/50
raffle is featured, and proceeds go directly toward
raising thousands of dollars for the scholarship fund.
"We have an excellent board of directors,"
explained Board President/Treasurer, Bob LaSalle.
"Thanks to careful financial management, a
supportive community, and over 100 volunteers,

President Charlie Tyler and President/Trea-
surer, Bob LaSalle, stand in front of the Play-

hall. Special performances of "The Gin Game"
this weekend will launch the Board's campaign
to reduce the mortgage on the Annex building.

Myakka Pines Golf Club:
Unspoiled, Olde Florida


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


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

In 2012, he and bassist Nick
Spagnuolo "Spags" had already
formed a light jazz duo. At the same
time, they were performing in the
15-member State College of Florida,
Manatee, Big Band where they met
fellow student and classically trained
violinist, Camille "Millie" Hudson.
When a shoulder injury forced
Camille to cut back on her violin
playing temporarily, the two Nicks
convinced her to join Intuit as a
vocalist. T
"I'm currently taking singing lessons from L
Melody Dickerson at State College of Florida
and gaining confidence as a jazz vocalist," she
explained.
The fourth member of Intuit is 17-year-old
Hunter James Brown.
"I wanted to playthe drums when I was
9 years old, but my mother persuaded me to learn
to play the piano first. Learning to read music
really helped," said Hunter, the quartet's drummer,
vocalist and keyboard player.
Intuit prides itself on being a Modern Jazz
Collective. The term collective, according to Nick
Spagnuolo, means that no one performer stands

By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you are planning to remodel or upgrade your
home, you'll be happy to learn that experts will be
on hand this weekend to offer help and advice at the
Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda Home & Garden Show.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday, Jan.
18, and Sunday, Jan. 19, vendors will be displaying
their latest products, furnishing, and accessories, and
contractors will give tips on remodeling roofs, patios,
pools, decks and docks. With home prices rising and
mortgage rates at record lows, it's a perfect time for
making home improvements.
Celebrity Chef Emily Ellyn will be performing two
separate demonstrations on Sunday when she'll be


remodeling recipes (what she calls"Retro Rad") on
stage at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. How does one remodel a
recipe you might ask?
Well, Chef Ellyn believes that leftovers can be
made over as a tasty meal, and she's eager to show
you how. First, she intends to demonstrate the art of
pressure cooking short ribs.
"All new cookers have safety valves to insure
safety'she maintains,"and leftover short ribs can
easily be transformed into three additional dishes:
shepherd's pie, pulled pork sandwiches, and chili."
After demonstrating how to prepare each dish,
Chef Ellyn will pass around samples and hold a ques-
tion and answer session. She encourages audience
participation. Chef Ellyn, who is completing her Ph.D.
at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management in
Orlando, has traveled widely and enjoys taking old
dishes and making them new using pressure cookers,
crockpots, or woks.
"I like to teach people how to take delicious
leftovers and build them into their weekly menu
planning'she said.
Chef Ellyn is an entertainer at heart, funny and fun
to watch, and fans will look forward to reading her
upcoming book: "Leave it to Cleaver."
Over 70 vendors are expected to show off their
wares at the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda Home

Rotary Fine Art and Craft Fest gets early start with concert


By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Established artists, local crafters and about 4,000
rubber duckies will come together once again for the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club's 22nd Annual Fine Art
and Craft Festival on Saturday, Jan. 18, and Sunday,
Jan. 19, at the Venice Municipal Airport festival
grounds.
The rotary club has been hard at work organizing
a juried show of roughly 80 artists and crafters,
entertainers, and children's activities. Rotarian Joe
Pokorney and his wife Judith McGinty are co-chairing
the event this year. Although the pair has assisted
with the festival over the past 10 years, this is their
second year chairing the show.
"We wear cowboy hats so people know where we
are in case they have a question," McGinty said.
"The show has everything from paintings, pottery,
ceramics, jewelry and photography,";' Pokorney said.
"The crafts are pretty wide-ranging these days,";' he
said, including designer bird cages and tiki signs.
As for those 4,000 rubber duckies, they are part
of a popular fundraising event known as the Duck
Pluck. With a little help from the fire department, an
above ground swimming pool is filled with water and
numbered yellow ducks bob around waiting to be
picked out of the water every half hour to announce
a prize winner with the corresponding number on his
or her entry form. Buy one duck for $6, two for $10,
27 for $100, or as many as 160 ducks for $500. There
are other deals too. The more ducks you purchase,
the more chances to win and the more prizes you
can win.
The grand prize is a five-day cruise for two. Other
prizes include theater tickets, 18 holes of golf for four,
restaurant gift certificates, YMCA family member-
ships, family portrait packages, family bowling

packages, oil change and lubes for cars, home A/C

This year is the Duck Pluck's 10th anniversary, and
all proceeds directly support Rotary Futures College
Resource Center in Venice High School. The center
serves Sarasota County students with identifying
and securing scholarships, selecting colleges, and
qualifying for Florida's Bright Futures scholarship
program. This valuable resource has brought more
than $21 million in scholarships to the county since
its inception in 2001.
There will also be a children's tent displaying stu-
dent artwork from area schools which will be judged
at the festival. Craft projects and activities will also be


This year, the rotary club plans to kick off the
event with a new Friday night concert called Rock
with Rotary at 6 p.m., Friday, Jan. 17, at the festival
grounds. The Gas House Gorillas, a modern rock band
out of Venice, will perform from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $10 online
at www.venicenokomisrotary.org or at the following
Venice businesses: Contemporary Hearing, 242 South
Tamiami Trail; Eyes On You, 141 W. Venice Ave.; Classic
Creations Diamond and Gold, 2381 South Tamiami
Trail; and Brindley's Liquors, 421 South Tamiami Trail.
At the door on Friday, tickets will be $15 per person.
Concert proceeds will go directly to the Rotary Futures
College Resource Center at Venice High School.
Participants at both the Friday night concert or
weekend festival can also snack on hot dogs, hamburg-
ers, Italian sausage and food sold bythe rotary members.
Beer and wine will also be available to purchase. In
addition to the Friday night concert, there will be a
variety of entertainers performing overthe weekend

during the festival. Saturday's schedule includes the
Rock-A-Dials, the Shames, and Ken McBride. Sunday will
have performances from the Curry Creek Cloggers, GSL
Trio John LeRoux, and again from Ken McBride.
An antique car show will be set up on Saturday,
as well as a British car show for Sunday. The Fine Art
and Crafts Festival displays will be open from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Jan. 18 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 19
at Venice Municipal Airport festival grounds off South
Harbor Drive in Venice. Festival parking is free and
admission is $2 per person for anyone 12 and over.
The Rotary club has several additional charities
which it supports. It has long sponsored the Interact
Club at Venice High School, contributed to the
improvement of the Venice Community Center and
VHS stadium a few years ago and has sent study
groups to such places as Russia and Australia.
Festival sponsors include Gulf Coast Community
Foundation, Venice Regional Medical Center, Caldwell
Trust and the Venice GondolierSun.

The 13th Annual Charlotte County Boat Show will be held at the Charlotte County Fairgrounds.


Boat show this weekend


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The area's largest presentation of boats and
marine products is coming to the Charlotte County
Fairgrounds this weekend.
Many major boat dealers will be on hand at the 13th
Annual Charlotte County Boat Show beginning at 10a.m.
to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16, through Saturday,
Jan. 18, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19.
Produced by the Southwest Florida Marine Industries
Association, the show will include more than 250 boats
on display and a variety of marine accessories and
services. Admission is free, and parking is $5.
Inside the Fairground's Expo Hall in Port Charlotte
there will be boat lifts, clothing and yacht brokers, as
well as information about marinas, boatyards, service
suppliers and more.
John Good, who works with the Southwest Florida
Marine Industries Association, said that this year's show
promises to be one of the best in recent memory.
"Business is getting better, so there are going to be
more boats and products than in previous years," he
said. "The dealers are super busy right now, so there
will be a lot of new boats on display."
While not an in-water show, visitors will find
hundreds of boats from nearly every local dealer:
center console fishing boats, flats boats, skiffs,
deck boats, pontoon boats, family cruising boats,
catamarans, and more.
This show is always a great opportunity to learn
more about area boating and safety. The U.S Coast
Guard Auxiliary, Power Squadron, and local yacht
clubs can answer just about any questions you
may have about where to go and how to enjoy the
beautiful boating waters of Charlotte Harbor.


IF YOU GO
WHERE: Charlotte County Fairgrounds, 2333 El
Jobean Road (Route 776), Port Charlotte.
WHEN: From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday,
Jan. 16, through Saturday, Jan. 18, and from
10 a.m.to5 p.m Sunday, Jan. 19.
TICKETS: Admission to the show is free.
INFO: Parking is $5. For more information, visit
the website at www.gofloridaboating.com.
Charlotte's own Fishin'Frank's Bait & Tackle and their
friendly, experienced crew will hold Fishing Seminars
throughout the four days of the show. They will talk
about both inshore and offshore fishing, and will be
happy to answer all fishing and equipment-related
questions.
Good says that new at the show this year will be
Frank's Fishing Simulator, where you can experience
the excitement of catching everything from a bass to a
marlin. This will be a free attraction in the seminar area.
The producer of The Charlotte County Boat Show, the
Southwest Florida Marine Industries Association, has a
membership which includes nearly every boat dealer
and marine-related company in Southwest Florida,
and has protected the rights of boaters and promoted
boating and the marine industry in Southwest Florida
for more than 40 years. The association also owns the
Fort Myers Spring Boat Show, held at the Lee Civic
Center in March and the Fort Myers Boat Show, held in
downtown Fort Myers in November.
The Charlotte County Fairgrounds are at 2333 El
Jobean Road (Route 776), Port Charlotte. For more
information about the show, visit the website at

DEAR DR. ROACH: My
39-year-old beloved niece
just died of sickle cell
anemia. Her life involved
countless hospitalizations
and blood transfusions
every month to five
weeks. She leaves behind
a beautiful 5-year-old son
to be raised by his father.
On the day of my niece's
funeral, this son suffered a
stroke. Luckily, he survived
and appears to be doing
well. Tests showed that
he'd had an earlier stroke,
which was undetected at
the time. He's only 5!
Words cannot describe
the anguish of my family.
Please advise what prog-
ress has been made in
sickle cell research. I am
somewhat familiar with
bone marrow transplant;
however, my niece could
not benefit from it because
of her stroke history first
stroke at age 9, second at
35, fatal at 39. She suffered
first from the shutdown of
her liver, followed by that
last stroke. I believe it to
be likely that her son may
not benefit from a bone
marrow transplant because
of his strokes. J.G.
ANSWER: I am very
sorry to hear of your niece.
I trained in the South Side
of Chicago, and cared for
far too many people with
this devastating disease.
Sickle cell is one of the
best-understood diseases
there is. We know the gene
that causes it, the specific
amino acid in the specific
protein that causes it, and
how that changes a normal
red blood cell into one with
a sickle shape, blocking
blood vessels and leading
to irreversible death of
tissues, especially in the
brain (stroke), but also in
the kidney, bones, spleen,
heart and many others. But
that understanding doesn't
mean we can treat it as well
as we'd like.
You have identified
the only known cure
for sickle cell disease:
transplantation of the cells
that make red blood cells
into the bone marrow.
Genetic cures may be on
the horizon, but as yet they
aren't available, and bone
marrow transplant is lim-
ited as you rightly point
out, only some people are
right for the procedure.
The treatment I want to
highlight today is hydroxy-
urea, a medication usually
reserved for young children
or for older children
and adults with more
severe SCD. Hydroxyurea
works by increasing the
production of a different
hemoglobin, called
hemoglobin E Hemoglobin
F, even in small quantities,
can prevent the sickling
of red blood cells and


Dr. Roach

thus prevent the damage
to tissues that results.
Experts in SCD agree that
this treatment is not given
early enough or to enough
people who might benefit
from it. It isn't a cure, but
it significantly reduces the
number of severe sickle
cell crises, from about
4.5 events per year to 2.5
events per year in the
biggest study.
If your niece's son
hasn't had a trial of this
medication, it would be
worth discussing with his
hematologist, the blood
specialists who usually
provide SCD care.
DEAR DR. ROACH: At
53,1 was diagnosed with
prostate cancer, and since
this is common in my
family, I had the cancer
removed. For three years
now, I have gotten the PSA
test done and my numbers
have been steady at .01.
Some of my friends say I
should go for additional
radiation treatments, but
my doctor says I'm fine. I
believe in my doctor, but
maybe you can put the
argument to rest one way
or the other. M.P
ANSWER: Believe in your
doctor. A persistently low
PSA is very good evidence
that the cancer is cured
or at least staying quiet. If
the PSA starts increasing
(which I hope it doesn't),
your doctor with go over
your options with you at
that point.

Yesterday's Jumbles: BASIC GOOSE NATIVE NEATLY
Answer: The furniture builder grew a garden so that
he could display his "VEGE-TABLES"

Processing cleanliness


Dear Heloise: Do you
have a hint for how to
quickly and efficiently
clean blenders and food
processors? I like using
these appliances but don't
enjoy taking them apart
for cleaning. Susan W.
in Pennsylvania
A blender is easy to
clean, but a food processor
seems like too much work!
Susan, there is an easy hint
for cleaning these applianc-
es: After you are done using
the blender or processor,
rinse the pitcher or bowl
with water. Fill half of the
pitcher or bowl with warm
water and add a drop of
dishwashing liquid. Put the
lid on securely and turn the
appliance back on for 20-30
seconds. Also, it takes only
a drop of detergent don't
overdo it, thinking more is
better. Rinse, dry and that's
it. -Heloise

Club waffles
Dear Heloise: Help! Years
ago, you printed a waffle
recipe using club soda.
When I opened the book
where I kept the recipe all
this time, it wasn't there!
Could you please print it
again?- Lucille S. in Texas
Lucille, you can enjoy
these Heloise Club
Waffles again! Gather the
following ingredients:
2 cups biscuit mix
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Oatmeal hint
Dear Heloise: I love
fresh fruit in my morning
oatmeal, especially peaches.
Though they may not
always be in season, I found
a way to have them all
year long! I purchase the
cups of diced peaches in
100 percent fruit juice and
strain the juice from the
cup. I then stir the peaches
into the oatmeal when it
has 30 seconds left in the
microwave.- Jacki, via
email

Omit the oven mitt
Dear Heloise: After
collecting wine corks from
a few bottles (real ones, not
the plastic kind), just wedge
them under the handles of
pot lids, using two or more,
depending on how many
the handle will allow. The
corks remain cool through-
out cooking, and they cre-
ate a stable grip by which
to grasp your pot lids. No
need for oven mitts, which
can really crowd the space
around the stove! -Abbie

Angry dad wants to learn

how to control his emotions


DEAR ABBY: I'm a dad
in my 30s and I have a
problem. I have been
battling anger issues since
I was a kid. I have been
finding myself getting
more and more worked up
with my kids. When they
misbehave, I lose it and
yell at them. It is the way I
was raised; however, I feel
even worse afterward.
I really want to break
this habit. I don't want
the only memories my
children have of me to be
images of my red face and
bugged-out eyes hollering
at them. Do you have any
guidelines I can follow to
get a better handle on my
anger? -LOUD DAD IN
WEST VIRGINIA
DEAR LOUD DAD: Yes,
I do. And I'm glad you
asked me because it's
important that you find
other ways of relieving
your frustration than
taking it out on your
children. It is not only
counterproductive, it is
extremely destructive.
When a bigger person
yells at a smaller person,
the message is often
lost because the smaller
person (in your case, your
children) simply shuts
down out of fear that
physical violence might
follow.
You should not ignore
your feelings when your
children act up. Rather,
you need to find another
manner for expressing
your emotions. My book-
let "The Anger in All of
Us and How to Deal With
It" offers suggestions on
redirecting angry feelings
in a healthy way. It can
be ordered by sending
your name and mailing
address, plus a check or
money order for $7 (U.S.
funds), to Dear Abby-
Anger Booklet, EO. Box
447, Mount Morris, IL
61054-0447. Shipping and
handling are included in
the price. Dealing with
anger calmly and with rea-
son is more effective than
lashing out. Expressing
your feelings is healthy
when it's done with a few
well-chosen words that
make your point. As you
have already learned,
exploding in anger serves


DearAbby

no constructive purpose
and only makes you feel
worse afterward.
Sometimes when
people are angry or
frustrated about other
things, they can lose
control of their temper.
In situations like these, it
is important to evaluate
the source of what might
really be irritating you
before misdirecting your
anger at someone who is
blameless.
There are healthy ways
of dealing with anger and
frustration. Developing
the control to express
emotions verbally without
being abusive or calling
names is one of them.
Another is to say a prayer
("Please Lord, don't let me
lose my temper!") before
opening your mouth.
Leaving the room, going
for a walk or short run can
be helpful.
Unhealthy ways that
should be avoided include
getting into your car when
you are angry, or using
alcohol or drugs to calm
you.
My booklet offers many
other suggestions for
dealing with anger and
frustration, and I hope
it will be helpful to you.
However, if it isn't, then
you should discuss your
problem with a mental
health professional. It's
important to get a handle
on your feelings so your
children won't grow up
thinking that verbal abuse
is a normal way to handle
their emotions.

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


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21 -April 19). Watch out. When you
say"l am/whatever follows is a declaration with
staying power. Perhaps the safest route is not to
claim anything at all.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As it is with moving
vehicles, the faster you're going the longer it's going
to take to stop.The day will be a bitofa blur. Long,
languorous evening hours will helpyou unwind.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Only time can tell
whether an unwelcome development will be


reason to stay upbeat and hopeful forthe best
possible outcome.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).You have a talent for
creating illusions that will enhance yourimage.
Everybody does this to some degree, but you openly
admit it. That's what makes you relatable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).You'rea problem-solving
machine today. Some problems are solved through
bold, swift action and others through sensitivity and
awareness. You can change your style on a dime.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is normal to encounter


a great deal of willpower. Distractions seem shinier.
Goals go soft. You feel tired. Fight on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Friends have some
mighty strange ideas about what you need to do
to stay healthy, wealthy and wise.The best rule to
follow is: Don't listen to friends.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You're moving quickly
and handling what's in frontofyou.To innocent
bystanders, you look like a person making it up in
the moment. It's all part ofyourgrand plan.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Safe talk leads


causes people to feel defensive and closed. The best
conversations will combine the tame with the wild.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).You like those last
minutes of a project, right before the bell rings. The
quickening ofyour pulse makes you do your best
work. You'll be in excellent form.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don't have
to have an answer the moment someone asks
something of you. Making this person wait is an
excellent strategy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes it can be


extremely lucky foryou in the end.You have every inner resistance when taking on a job that requires nowhere. Dangerous talk also leads nowhere, as it challenqinq to maintain enthusiasm foryour


daily responsibilities and routines, but today a
funny new force in your life will shed some sunshine
on it.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(Jan. 15). You'll circulate in a
high-powered group. In the first quarter oftheyear,
you could participate in a battle of sorts, but you
likely will showyour strength by avoiding fighting.
May brings a big decision and the glorious fallout:
Your life is your creation. In August, the focus is on
home and the people who make it joyful. Libra and
Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are:
12,3, 22,40 and 16.

Opening lead: Three of 0
This hand is from the Venice Cup,
the World Championship Women's
Teams, contested in Bali, Indonesia
last summer. South was Janice
Seamon-Molson, of Florida,
representing the USA.
North-South were employing
transfers over one no trump, so North
transferred to hearts and rebid three


no trump to offer South a choice of
games. South had an excellent hand
for hearts and chose the thoughtful
bid of four clubs, in case North had
some latent slam ambitions. Any
side-suit bid over three no trump
shows a strong raise in partner's
major South couldn't be looking
for a new trump suit at this point.
North had a hand which came to life
when partner showed a good hand
with a fit. The leap to six hearts was
a reasonable shot.
South won the opening diamond
lead and played a trump to her king.
She led another trump toward
dummy and made the safety play of
inserting the seven when West played
low! The heavy lifting was done and
South had 12 tricks four hearts,
five spades, two diamonds and the
ace of clubs.
In the replay, the Polish South bid
four hearts over three no trump, and
the slam was missed. Seamon-
Molson's four-club bid created a big
swing for the USA.

Buehler Helen L. Heffernan Merle W. Landau Charles R. Leader Russell E. Owens Good morning, Gondolier Sun subscriber Doris Chrisman CARING ABOUT DETAILWhen small is big.Page 1B January 15-17, 2014 Vol. 68 No. 75 An edition of the Sun The Wildlife Center of Venice, a rehabilitation facility unique to the area, is disputing the claim that a planned housing development in North Venice wont displace wildlife. Kevin Barton, director and co-founder of the Wildlife Center of Venice, located practically next door to a planned Neal Communities subdivision on Border Road, sent out a call for action this month in the WCVs newsletter, saying the rezone doesnt belong here. The call to action generated nearly 400 signatures, some from out of state, on an electronic petition on Facebook. The WCV is the only facility of our type in South County, and is the largest in the tri-county area, Barton said. Selling these parcels under existing (zoning) code into 5and 10-acre tracts would be a much slower (development) process and much better for wildlife, and the Wildlife Center of Venice. What irked Barton was Wildlife center is objecting to planned 253 homesBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORCENTER | 4 Another piece of Venice history is to be torn down on the island but the developer has agreed to build luxury homes representative of the island style. The homes will be replacing a bed and breakfast, which the owners have tried to sell for seven years as a business, but those interested could not obtain nancial support to warrant the purchase. Built in 1926, the Horse & Chaise Inn at 317 Ponce De Leon, one of only two bed and breakfast locations on the island of Venice, has been sold New homes planned for Horse & ChaiseBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO COURTESY OF THE AAUW OF VENCIEThe Horse and Chaise Inn dates to the era of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers in Venice. The Inn will be torn down and replaced by six homes.The end of historic B&Bs in Venice?It appears that tourists to Venice no longer desire the home comforts of bed and breakfast in a home setting. With the closure of one of the nal two bed and breakfast establishments, that leaves only the historic Banyan House Bed & Breakfast at 519 South Harbor Drive. That has recently been put up for sale. Chuck and Susan McCormick, innkeeper owners, are advertising their property as a single-family home with their own company, Banyan Realty. It is also available to be kept as a bed and breakfast, run as a business or Banyan House quietly put on the marketBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNISTBANYAN | 11 HORSE | 11Enoughs enough. That was the general consensus of city leaders this week who opted to limit emails on the city server, citing spam overload. Technically, the city email server will not allow original emails coming in to the site to be seen. Instead, the public will be able to see only the responses made by council members, as well as the original email they responded to. Anyone who wants to see every email sent to a council member can do so by requesting such from the city clerks ofce. The move overturns a decision made two years ago by the Venice City Council when it opted not to eliminate the incoming emails from the public server. In 2011, council members were concerned the move at that time might have been construed as censorship. The problem of spam has gotten so great, said Venice Mayor John Holic, that something had to be done. The city is now aligned with City reducing access to public emailsBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOREMAILS | 7In early 1994, violence again appeared to be imminent in the east central African nation of Rwanda. Huge shipments of weapons mostly machetes were rumored to be coming into the capital, Kigali, which had largely escaped the effects of the three-year civil war that had wracked the rest of the country. Radio programs carried messages of hate directed toward the Tutsi people, threatening the uneasy truce between them and the Hutus, who had been forced to share power with them. There was talk of massacres of Tutsis, who formerly had been in power though they made up only 14 percent of the population. Then, in April, a plane carrying President Juvnal Habyarimana, a Hutu, was shot down by a missile as it was landing in Kigali, and all hell broke loose there. Roger Bones World History Witness to genocideBy BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITER SUN PHOTOS BY BOB MUDGECarl Wilkens, the only American to stay in Kigali, Rwanda, during the 1994 genocide, tells history students at Venice High School about his experience on Monday.Visitor speaks of hope to students Carl Wilkens, the only American to remain in Kigali, Rwanda, during the 1994 genocide, travels the country with his wife in a motor home spreading a message of hope.WITNESS | 7 Not everyone can get astride a cycle or learn how to manage the new recumbent, but the Legacy Trail has been built for all to enjoy. To this end, the Friends of The Legacy Trail want to ensure residents and visitors of all ages can participate. Regardless of whether a person is physically active, they can experience the thrill of this specially created trail by joining volunteers for a free surrey ride on the Trail. The FLT Surrey Program offers a way for mobility-challenged people to share in the Trail experience. Up to ve passengers will be seated in a Legacy Trail Surrey, and three of those can pedal. The Surrey goes about 4 mph, no matter how enthusiastically participants pedal. Convenient straps have been attached to the pedals to prevent feet from slipping off. We are looking forward to the day when we have a bride and groom in the Surrey, said Sarah Calabrese, the surrey volunteer coordinator and promoter. A blind lady and a 100-year-old guy have been among our passengers, some whom even fall asleep on the ride. The 30-minute ride starts at Nokomis Community Park, located at 234 Nippino Trail East in Nokomis. Reservations are generally not accepted for the multiple departures each Wednesday and Thursday. Riders sign in at 9 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday mornings. To accommodate more guests, volunteer coordinators offer multiple rides. This year, we have just updated the new afternoon rides on Wednesday from 1 p.m., Calabrese said. I or a Surrey volunteer coordinator steers, and with three other riders, pedal on the 30-minute ride. Calabrese welcomes people who cannot get out on the trail because they are housebound or handicapped. She plans to go to the independent retirement communities to invite people to participate. While waiting for the ride, guests can learn about The Legacy Trail and Sarasota County Parks in the indoor waiting area. For more information, call 941-330-6800.Mobility-challenged can ride Legacy Trail on a surreyBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONEnjoying a sunny afternoon ride along the Legacy Trail near the Dona Bay trestle bridge are Wanda Hines, volunteer tour guide; Sarah Calabrese, the Surrey volunteer coordinator and promoter; and guest passengers Marlene Barry, Richard Barry (celebrating his 72nd birthday) and Jerry Hines.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A $$ S AV E MONEY $$ Shop the Classifieds. Fishing Fo r A New Career? Check Out The Classifieds In The The Venice City Council has gone to great lengths to position itself to lease the Circus Arena property, cleaning up the property that was closed down due to unsafe conditions and getting ready to solicit requests for proposals to develop the area. Trouble is, the city cant develop the site, according to its own rules. At least not until they rewrite the citys comprehensive plan, a long range plan that guides growth within the city. On Tuesday, City Council voted to transmit a comp plan amendment that would allow commercial development in the area known as the Southern Gateway to the city. This (existing) policy hinders the citys ability to implement other policies of the plan, said city planner Scott Pickett. Its not fully consistent with the intent of the corridor. Frankly, this is to make possible the redevelopment of the circus property, Pickett said. All those (uses) listed (in the request for proposals) cannot be done without this. This restriction isnt appropriate anymore. Its a perfect example of council changing its view on how public land should be developed in this area. Larry Ivey, who in the past has represented the Venice Circus Arts Foundation, said there was no need to change the plan. Developing the property in line with the foundations oft stated desire to create an open, covered venue run by a nonprot would be considered noncommercial development in keeping with the existing comp plan language, he said. Council Member Jim Bennett was the sole vote against the change. This part of the city has enormous potential, Bennett said. Im concerned about pulling the plug on this. We need to do special planning on this. Its incomplete and were going to have problems because of that. The Venice Planning Commission previously approved the change unanimously. A nal vote on the matter takes place next month. Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comComp plan conundrum gets fixBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR A Venice youth who allegedly committed a burglary two years ago when he was 17 was arrested last week. Kylor S. Proper, 19, is facing burglary charges as a juvenile after latent ngerprints were resubmitted in December into the local Automated Fingerprint Identication System database, which was upgraded in July of 2013. The upgrade has resulted in a slew of new arrests and prosecutions. Authorities say, in this case, forced entry was made through a window located inside a carport of a residence on Paddington Road in Venice on Jan. 14, 2011. The suspected burglar apparently moved a hur ricane glass-mantle lamp that was sitting on a shelf just inside the window. Fingerprint testing at the time yielded negative results. The victim reported a stolen laptop worth $860, Sony camera worth $250, iPod worth $150 and Nintendo worth $250. Proper, 2100 block of Frederick Drive, Venice, was arrested Jan. 10 and charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling. He was released earlier this week on a $7,500 bond. Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight announced what was being called the worlds most up-to-date and accurate ngerprint matching technology in August. We are already getting hits on crime scene prints that were previously unidentied in the old system, said Brenda Viana, AFIS Supervisor. Even low quality prints that couldnt be searched are being identied on the new system. The 10-year old AFIS system was upgraded to the Morpho Biometric Identication Solution, or MorphoBIS, from MorphoTrak, the FBIs ngerprint provider.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comFingerprint database snags alleged burglarBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR 480580 Tune-Up Your A/C & Heating System $49 95 REG.

This wildlife hotspot is where I admire deer, turkey, quail, bald eagles, swallow-tailed kites, panther tracks, chuckwills widows, ground doves, fox, bobcat, all types of woodpecker, all types of songbird, woodstorks, barred owls, various hawk species, lightening bugs, crawdads, kingshers, alligators, a million frogs and insects, ying squir rels, kestrels, bats, otters ... basically everything in the area, Barton said. He believes this par ticular 151-acre tract is indispensable to securing a wildlife corridor to the Myakka River tracts and that alone makes it worth preserving. This is the buffer, Barton said. Theyre starting with the worst piece of (land to develop). The rest will fall like dominoes if they succeed. Boone pointed out that Sarasota County has already set aside huge amounts of conservation lands, mostly on the other side of the Myakka River east of the proposed development. This county has tens of thousand of acres thats in public ownership. Very few counties on either coast have as much land as Sarasota County set aside for wildlife and public recreation, Boone said. These are the kind of issues that often come up when new development is proposed further inland. In this instance, some of the houses that are along the Myakka River were built 50 years ago. That urban boundary was set 50 years ago. Were not talking about pushing out any further. Boone said the current proposal is similar to others made in the early 2000s. Those, he said, stalled out during the recession and are now coming. The property was annexed and then designated through the city comprehensive plan for future development at under ve units per acre under then-mayor Ed Martin, a slow growth proponent. Neal Communities and the city Planning Commission met last week in a pre-confer ence to discuss Pat Neals idea to develop the parcel with 253 single family homes. Barton wants his own pre-conference with the commission to make his case against changing the zoning. I know he (Pat Neal) is well-respected in the community as a developer and politician but from a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation point of view, I am all too familiar with these developments from those in Lakewood Ranch south to Sawgrass down the road from us, Barton said. As these developments go in, the native wildlife go out, often on a stretcher.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comCENTERFROM PAGE 1 475574 481759 941-451-8261 BREAKFAST LUNCH DINNER TAKE OUT CATERING P ET F RIENDLY 227 W.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A A former boyfriend and girlfriend, who still live in the same residence together and have a child in common, got into a ght over who the better parent is. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: On Sunday near midnight, Jessica M. Berry, 32, and her former boyfriend were drinking heavily and arguing loudly in the garage of a residence on Jamaica Road in Venice. The ex-boyfriend allegedly said, Youre a piece of sh-mother. The mother responded by attacking the victims face, digging her ngers into his mouth. He responded by ramming her into a vehicle that was inside the garage. Berrys boyfriend, who witnessed the attack and pointed the nger at his girlfriend for instigating the brawl, broke up the ght. Both were transported to Venice Regional Bayfront Health ER for injuries to the face and head area. Berry, who was deter mined to be the aggressor, was charged with domestic battery. Bond was not available.Victim goes to bar after attackDeputies were summoned to a bar on Tamiami Trail to investigate a case of battery. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Office report: The victim and her live-in boyfriend of eight months, Billy Gene Todd, 57, got into an argument as they ar rived home from dinner at a bar/ restaurant. While she was trying to open the door, a verbal argument ensued. The victim said she was struck in the back of the head by Todd, punched several times in the face, then kicked in the head. After the physical altercation, Todd left the area. The victim walked to a friends house. The friend drove her back to her residence so she could clean all the blood off her face and change clothes, according to the report. The victim then apparently went to Wallys Pour House, where she called 911. The deputy observed the victims injuries while at the bar, then went to the couples residence where Todd was asleep. He told the deputy they were arguing because she said he was looking at other women in the bar. She got mad and hit him in the back of his head, he said. The officer did not observe any redness or marks consistent with being struck. Todd also denied ever punching or hitting the victim. Todd, 1700 block of Banyan Drive, Venice was arrested Friday evening and charged with domestic battery. Bond was set at $25,000.Bust made for selling meds out of homeA Nokomis man is in jail on $75,000 bond after he was caught selling narcotics used in drug abuse treatment from his home.

The two-acre property had been acquired in January 2004 to make way for construction of the 18 luxury condominiums known as Harbor Villas at Dona Bay, which currently occupy the location. But now there is something new in on the way for the area. On the southern side of the bridge at 690 South Tamiami Trail at the junction of Sunset Drive, a new marina is under construction. On the small .38-acre location will be the new Dona Bay Docks with a .33-acre water marine park. There are four mooring slips and additional space for transient boaters to stop and use the facility. At street level are parking spaces for nine vehicles and racks for four bicycles. Because of the ood zone, the 696-square-foot deli sandwich shop is on the second oor. Outside is a waterfront deck with seating where guests can relax and watch the sunset over Dona Bay while enjoying a bever age or something to eat. There is ADA access to the second oor deli and restrooms. Rowco Investments LLC of Kansas purchased the property in October of 2005 by for $290,000. Rowco is owned by Bill Rowland of Bayshore Road in Nokomis. I am looking for kayak or pontoon boat rentals to lease the facility and possibly operate the deli, Rowland said. The established Honoluana Tiki Bar & Restaurant was acquired in January 2004 by David and Valerie Thompson. It was torn down, and they reopened the Honoluana at Venice Airport in 2005, having converted an existing restaurant. Subsequently, they sold it, and it closed about two years ago, but apparently there are plans for a re-opening.Small marina with deli to open in NokomisBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONOne of the few and smallest marinas under construction is Dona Bay Docks at 690 South Tamiami Trail at the junction of Sunset Drive in Nokomis. Along Jacaranda Boulevard, construction crews have begun demoli tion of landscaping as part of the infrastructure for the new Cottages at Jacaranda Trace. Contractor Willis Smith of Sarasota is expected to complete the project by the summer of 2014. Projected to cost $4.4 million, this memory care center will occupy three acres on the south side of the existing campus along Jacaranda Boulevard across from Home Depot. The two cottages, each housed in an 18,000-square-foot building, will have 18 pri vate bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, private dining, meeting room and spa. Providing a safe and home-like environment, people with memory issues or related impair ments may stroll among lush landscapes within a secure gated area of part of the Jacaranda Trace property. A unique new service providing a transparency assurance enables family members to log-on to a camera focused on the great room to watch what their relative is doing. The Cottages of Jacaranda Trace has for two years been in the planning stages by Steven Roskamp and Gregory Patterson, principals of Freedom Senior Management Group and operators of Jacaranda Trace. It will be truly resident-centered care, said Gail Chase, community director of The Cottages.Construction to begin on Cottages of Jacaranda TraceBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONContractor Willis Smith of Sarasota has started preparing the infrastructure for the new memory care center, The Cottages at Jacaranda Trace will be located along Jacaranda Boulevard across from Home Depot. One of the most successful community banks in Venice in the past seven years will ofcially close today, Wednesday, Jan. 15, subject to regulatory approval. The elegant ofces of Florida Shores Bank Southwest at 500 U.S. 41 Bypass North will reopen Thursday morning, Jan. 16, as an ofce of Stonegate Bank. The holding company Florida Shores Bancorp, which includes four locations on the West Coast and three branches on the East Coast, has been operating as Florida Shores Bank Southeast. Shareholders voted to accept the approximately $48.8 million buy-out by Stonegate Bank announced last September. Founded in 2007, the Venice bank had $600 million in assets in August of 2013. Following the opening of the Englewood ofce in 2010, a second branch ofce was opened in Sarasota last year, and Jim Kuhlman, president & CEO of Florida Shores Bank, expressed his intentions at the time to open a third branch ofce in Bradenton this year. The most successful Venice community bank in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte Counties with a top Baer Financial ve-star rating is expected to have a new marquee and signage in the weeks following the changeover. At the time of the announcement, Kuhlman reassured customers the takeover would be the most benecial asset to them. Although the name will change, I and my team are here with the core group of employees who have been with me since 1996, he said. The people who meet and greet will remain the same.Florida Shores becomes Stonegate BankBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST Local Rotarians partici pated in what was deemed a triple celebration. They recognized the 67th anniversary of the Venice Nokomis Rotary Club, they honored the oldest active past president Rotarian, Dan Boone, and they recognized the 50th anniversary of Past District Rotary Governor Dick Dodderidge. Rotarian Julia Stalnaker, the 2013-14 club president, made a presentation of owers to Dodderidge. He recalled being invited to join the Kansas City Rotary Club at a Thursday luncheon meeting in 1964. At that time, the club, founded in 1910, had 150 members. On this day, a Thursday for a similar luncheon meeting, I became a Rotarian and I am proud to celebrate my 50th anniversary, Dodderidge said. He subsequently came to Venice where a few years ago he served as District Governor. Today was the day to honor all of our past presidents and current president, Boone said. In my opinion, it is the president that leads the way. The reason this club has been so successful all these years is because of the past presidents and their ofcers. Boone is the oldest active president of Venice Nokomis Rotary Club. He joined in 1963 and was president in 1974-75. Also present at the recent celebration was the oldest member of the club, Rotarian Jim Hill, who joined on Sept. 1, 1962 and was president 1978-79. Closing the ceremony, Club President Julia Stalnaker said, It has been a wonderful experience so far and nice to have the backing of the club. Without the members, we would not have the club.Rotarians honor their elder statesmenBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONRight: Rotary Club President Julia Stalnaker presents a bouquet of owers to Rotarian Past District Governor Dick Dodderidge celebrating 50 years service.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A honors and Advanced Placement students at Venice High School heard all about it Monday from the only American eyewitness.Two peopleCarl Wilkens, his wife and three children had been living in Kigali for four years. As the country started to fall apart around them, Wilkens, the country director for Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA), did the only thing that made sense to them he stayed. Sending his wife, three children and parents to Kenya, Wilkens remained behind, initially to protect the two people who worked for them: Anitha, who helped in the house, and Janvier, their night watchman. Both were Tutsis and were like family, and leaving them behind, the Wilkenses feared, would have been a death sentence the Hutus, blaming Habyarimanas assassination on the Tutsis, were embarking on a program of genocide that would eventually leave an estimated 800,000 people dead, including many Hutus who opposed the killing. (A Hutu pastor and his wife also came to Wilkens house for safety.) Anitha and Janvier had both Tutsi and Hutu ID cards and could have tried to leave, but it would have been dangerous. The U.S. Embassy told Wilkens try ing to bring them out with him would put everyones life in jeopardy. We just didnt consider another option, he said. We didnt know we would actually come to a point where we might not see each other again.100 daysAt the time, the decision didnt look as risky as it would turn out to be. They thought tempers would cool after a week or two and it would be safe to reunite. The slaughter went on for 100 days. None of us knew it was going to last so long, Wilkens said. Partly, they had been reassured by the presence of UN peacekeeping forces there to enforce a ceasere in the civil war. But the troops were ordered to withdraw when the slaughter started. More than 3,000 people had sought refuge at a school guarded by UN forces, Wilkens said. When the troops began to pull out, young men lay down in front of the transports to try to keep them from leaving. One soldier testied that the rst time he red his gun was to clear a path, Wilkens said. With no one to guard them, the people were sitting ducks. Most were slaughtered. For these people, it would have been better if the UN hadnt been there, he said. They could have stopped the genocide.PayoffsWilkens didnt leave their house for three weeks, while the worst of the violence raged all around. The government had imposed a 24/7 curfew that kept most of the population indoors. The only people on the streets were the people doing the slaughter, he said. He slept in the hallway of the house, under his mattress for a little extra protection, for 88 days, even after it was safe to go out. The more brick walls between you (and the people with guns), the better, he said. Periodically, Hutu soldiers would come to the house looking for Tutsis. Each time, Wilkens managed to turn them away, assuring them no Tutsis were present. They perhaps saw the humanness, he said. Once, he said, he resorted to bribery, paying about $100 to end the questioning. An ADRA colleague who raised chickens would use them as a payoff. You just did what you have to do, Wilkens said.Network of thievesWhen he did venture out, he checked in with the local administrator, Col. Tharcisse Renzaho, to ask how ADRA could help the people of Kigali. Renzaho gave him a pass to authorize him to travel to the ADRA ofce and a police escort to help him get there. Eventually, Renzaho would allow him to help get food and water to a local orphanage, where children were suffering from dysentery. Asked what might motivate that humanitarian gesture, students offered explanations ranging from Renzaho positioning himself to have something positive to his credit if he later faced prosecution to the possibility that he hoped Wilkens might get killed carrying out the mission. Wilkens had a simpler reason. Maybe its just because he was asked, he said. I had to believe that the others the bad guys still had the power to do something good. It was a network of thieves and killers who helped me to help the orphanage.A differenceAll the while, thanks to ham radios, Wilkens managed to stay in daily contact with his family, a thousand miles away in Kenya. I dont know how I would have handled it if we didnt have that, Teresa Wilkens, his wife, said. I avoided other news sources. For me to survive, I didnt think I needed to see the worst. Nor did their children. The Rwandan Patriotic Front took control of the country in June and ended the slaughter. After a seven-month break, the family was able to return to a more peaceful Rwanda and the children found that most of their playmates had survived. Its nice the genocide wasnt their last impression of Rwanda, Wilkens said. Although they dont talk about the experience very often, they have not given us any reason to believe theyve been traumatized. Their kids grown, Carl and Teresa travel the country now, telling his story wherever they are invited to go. After spending Monday at VHS, they were off to Miami in their motor home, in which theyll live for pretty much the whole year, other than a couple of nights in March and a couple of nights in October at their home base in Spokane, Wash. Wilkens uses the horrors of the genocide to offer a positive message in his talks with students. The thinking behind the genocide was were going to make this place better by getting rid of somebody, he said. Thats not the answer. But its important to remember that the people thinking that thought are not maniac, suicide-bomber-type people, he said theyre human beings acting out of fear or anger. Using negative labels to describe people keeps us from looking at someone and asking, What else is he? and perhaps realizing how much we have in common. As we spend time together, we nd out how we can make a differ ence together, he said. Everybody wants to make a difference.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.comWITNESSFROM PAGE 1how other entities lter their governmental emails, Holic said. Sarasota County has been doing this for a long time, he said. Council members were partly responding to spam emails hawking services. Holic called the Venice city server a media haven for bloggers and others who regularly pick up comments and replay them, extending the discussion. Council members also said they were reacting to the sheer volume of daily advertisements on subjects that often dont pertain directly to Venice. Council Member Jeanette Gates ended the discussion with a precautionary comment. One mans spam is another mans treasure, said reminded them.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A Venice, Fla. Dick was born Nov. 8, 1933, in Three Springs, Pa., to James W. Leader and Lillian W. (Madden) Leader. He was the fourth of six children: two sisters and three brothers. Dick was a lifelong Lutheran and an active church participant wherever he lived. Dick was married to Myralin S.

As a member of Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Venice, Fla., he developed many friends and was a companion with Truda Bianco for many years. After high school and a tour with the Navy Reserves and the U.S. Marine Corps (serving a tour of duty in Korea) he attended Millersville State Teachers College, where he earned a B.S. and a masters degree in vocational education. He and his late wife were seasonal residents of Venice, Fla., since the early 1960s, and after their retirements from teaching they moved permanently to Venice in 1991. Dick was always active in community service and a long-standing member of the Freemasons, Shriners, Elks and American Legion. He loved to travel and cruise all his life and had many wonderful travel experiences with his friend Truda. Several years ago he made a round the world trip, which took several months and gave him many stories to tell throughout his life. Dick was an accomplished artist and woodworker and spent many hours at his hobbies. Services: There will be a Memorial Service at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Venice on Friday, Feb. 7, at 11 a.m. A second Memorial Service and family reunion will be held in July at the Walnut Grove Church of God in Pennsylvania, with the date and time to be announced at a later date.

OUR VIEWWarning shot law another step in wrong directionPretty soon, Florida could be a haven for duelists who want to settle their differences. Thats the path our lawmakers are taking as they prepare legislation to make it legal to draw a gun and re a warning shot. Already, Florida has a Stand Your Ground law that makes it legal to shoot someone if you feel threatened. That legislation was pushed through by lawmakers who failed to properly vet the law or its unforeseen consequences. Its a case of groupthink where nobody bothered to raise objections because they wanted to toe the party line. The reasoning behind both laws is obvious. We just feel the reasoning is skewed and shows a lack of condence in a legal system charged with deciding if a person is acting in self defense. The court system worked for decades before someone decided we needed to protect people who want to take potshots at others. In a sense, the new warning shot bill is a no-brainer. If you can already legally shoot someone when you feel threatened, why would it be a problem if you just ashed your gun, or red a warning shot? Of course, the key is that you are good enough with a rearm that a warning shot is just that a warning. The legislation was drawn up after a Jacksonville woman, Marissa Alexander, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for ring a warning shot at her estranged husband. The sentence was mandated by Floridas tough 10-20-Life law that makes is an automatic 20 years to life sentence for anyone discharging a gun while committing a crime. An appeals court threw out Alexanders sentence and she will have a new trial this year. State Attorney Bill Cervone, who represents the Gainesville district, said lawmakers were only hearing one side of the case. He said people who are in prison were put there by a judge and jury after they claimed self-defense. He agreed with our thinking that a judge and jury should be able to determine the truth and we have faith that our judicial system works. Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, the bills sponsor, disagrees. He said Floridians have a right to defend themselves and that includes brandishing a rearm and even shooting at the person they believe is threatening them. Evers brought up the case of a 74-year-old man in the Panhandle who was sentenced to prison because he had a shotgun visible during a confrontation. Cervone countered with the logic that perhaps the crime of aggravated assault should be removed from the list of crimes drawing a mandatory 10-20-Life sentence. When the Legislature convenes, this bill will surely get plenty of attention. Florida already has garnered national attention after the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. If our lawmakers insist on leaning toward legalizing the use of rearms in confrontations, then the best idea may be to legalize duels and charge a fee to attend. The money could be used for education. At least some good would come out of all the shootings. Our tough old hero forges aheadIts no surprise we all love stories about the tough old birds who wont quit, who get stronger and more ercely committed to life the closer they get to the end. My father-in-law is 88, a World War II hero, and still a golfer (when hes not down with some damn it is or another), though hes outlived foursome after foursome. Of course by this age hes got his share of serious physical problems but his biggest recent challenge was having to put his wife into a nursing home for her worsening case of Alzheimers disease. Joanne began getting paranoid and delusional and angry with Ray when he didnt see reality as she did. For example, someone was going to rob and kill them in their home so Joanne frantically insisted they get dressed, pack a suitcase, and wait at the end of the driveway for a neighbor who was going to rescue them. How much energy does anybody have for episodes like this? Ray and Joanne have been married nearly 30 years, since both lost their rst spouses. He has three grown children, she has ve. The whole blended family now agreed that it was just too dangerous for 88-yearold Ray to continue trying to care for Joanne at home. So the family found a relatively nearby nursing home with an Alzheimers unit that accepted Medicaid. And though in violently angry moments, Joanne fought physically to break out of this new jail, there were no feasible alternatives. For months now, Ray has been making the 15-mile trip to the nursing home three or four times a week. On Joannes bad days, her sadness, anger, and disorientation overwhelm him emotionally. But though hes heartbroken, Ray is patient with her and explains the situation over and over until she calms down. After he tenderly combs her hair, tucks her in for sleep, and kisses her goodnight, the tough old soldier goes home and cant keep from crying on the phone with my wife or one of the other children who call him every night. And, in rotation, some member of this compassionate and now quite organized family support group visits the parents each week. But tough as it is for Joanne to be in the nursing home, its still hell for Ray to be alone in a houseful of memories, even with little Jade, their sweet Chihuahua puppy. After a few weeks alone, he throws himself into the task of reorganizing the house. Ray has always been a jack of all trades, but this has to be his toughest job ever. To me, the renovation of his living space clearly signals a courageous commitment to staying alive. What an obviously useful and therapeutic way of handling great loss. How proud we are of our tough old soldier, more than ever now that we know he needs to cry a little now and then. Christmas rolls around. Even with little Jade in the house, hes still too lonely. He decides that for the new year, he wants a bird. To bring new life into your house when youre 88 seems daring and exciting to me, another clear signal of Rays commitment to forging ahead. We splurge and get him a pineapple-cheeked conure. He names the bird Bubba. Soon, the baby bird he wanted to teach to talk bites the tough old birds hand when he reaches in the cage to feed it. He wants to make sure Jade wont attack Bubba if it ies onto the oor, so he tries to teach them to be friends by putting the bird on the dogs head. Needless to say, this strategy doesnt work. We urge Ray to slow down and let the animals learn to adapt to each other, but the tough old soldier with a heart of gold has no time to waste in recreating his peaceable kingdom. Through tears, our hero asks his daughter if we can adopt the baby bird. But our condo regulations state that no pets are allowed. And thats where this heroic saga of loss and survival stands as of today. Bah-humbug Experience. I had a bah-humbug experience shopping on Venice Avenue. I spent the day after Christmas shopping for birthday gifts, stopped to have an unexpected lunch with friends and then shopping. Had a wonderful afternoon. Spent over $200 on gifts and returned to my car only to have a ticket. Many communities halt nes between Christmas and New Years to encourage local shopping. If I had gone to a mall, I could have used my coupons and parked as long as I liked with no fear of a $25 ne. Why? So violating the right of way and killing someone with your car is not considered reckless driving? Unbelievable. Help the Animals. Im calling about the ordinance for pet shops and pet stores selling puppies. Absolutely, I thought Sarasota County had it. They decided to make an ordinance against selling these animals and now they are sitting back on the fence. I think the smartest thing they did was to get involved in that and stop it. These puppy mills need to be stopped! If you took a tour through any of these places and these people who say that they get their dogs from reputable dog sellers, they do not have them under good conditions. There are very few breeders that will do that. Real breeders. Come on Sarasota. Get it together. Its bad enough with the homeless. The animals now need your support. Please, please stop these puppy shops! Doing Whats Right. Want to express my opinion on the untreated bacteria on the beach. I read the article and am adamantly opposed to this. I cant imagine anybody in the city would do such a thing. This is an intellectual decision that should be made based on the best thing for everybody. The other option is ltration through the ground, a viable solution. The article says you are saying, No. You should not be saying No. You are not doing justice for the people that live here in Florida to do something like this. Please reconsider doing this because it is not for the good of the community. Water Alternative. The beach problem: I am a taxpayer in the city of Venice and I say, No. Whatever happened to no taxation without representation or not doing anything without asking the city rst. Lets all dig a hole in each of the front yards of the City Council members, and lets put a dump in their yard and see how non-toxic they think that is. Dont ruin Venice Beach. Find another alternative. Going underground, the way it was suggested, is a better alternative. Speeders. This is about trafc control in South Venice on Tarpon Road. This is a quarter of a mile down to Alligator off of South Venice Boulevard. SCAT buses are the worst speeders of all. Need speed signs up on Tarpon. Need stop signs on Tarpon and Crane and Hialeah and Cranethat would slow some of these vehicles coming down at 50 or 60 mph. SCAT needs to stay up on 41 where they belong instead of ying down these back streets. Please help as much as possible. Bikers & Lights. Those yellow hands that are in the warning lights for walkers and bikers not to cross at that time, they seem not to work about 90 percent of the time. I think that hand should be something like a blink ing red light. The only problem with this is that it may confuse drivers. But bikers and old people, if you get close to them in a turn, they act like youre at fault; and dont ever yell at one of them and call them jaywalkers. You get all kinds of results from that. Theyve got to think of this problem in the future when they decide to do the lights over. It just aint workin but maybe the people aint workin either. Beaches & Bacteria. For years, our family has taken walks along our wonderful beaches in Venice. Also, we wondered about the outow pipes on Venice Beach. No other beach weve ever been on has such pipes. When Venice Beach was closed for the past few years due to high bacteria in the water, it seemed logical that the problem could be related to those outow pipes. It was discovered recently that this truly was the case. Now we understand the Venice City Council wants to dump the untreated bacteria water into an eco-bio swale on the beach instead of in the Gulf. We are totally against this. Please, City Council, explore other options such as a ltration system. The water does not belong on either the beach or in the Gulf. The best solutions are not always the quickest or the cheapest. Our beaches are precious. Make the right decision. Keep our environment safe and healthy for the long term.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A PHOTO PROVIDED BY PAULA KAYEWhew! by the owners Jon and Lois Steketee to Bamboo Builders of Sarasota. I feel rather bad that an old house is going, but we have tried for so long to sell, she said. Finally when someone comes along and wants to improve the property, honoring the theme of the city, we had to go with it. She said the upkeep requires more energy than she and her husband have to offer. If I had my way, I would have kept my house in some way as we are sitting on the prime property of Venice, but the developer needed all six lots to make it work, she said. In 2006, they had it on the market as a business and not one person came forward. They took it down for sale but this spring decided again to sell it. Thats when developer Gary Roberts owner of Bamboo Builders of Sarasota came forward. She told him he was dealing with a very blessed piece of property and if he will honor it, then it will do him well. He is taking out all 31 trees but each will be replaced. Within a year, they will build six homes in the northern Italian style, and already there is interest from buyers. I know he will be replacing these properties with something as elegant as and more beautiful than what is here now, she said. She has to be out by Feb. 23 and is arranging a large estate sale on Feb. 7, 8 and 9. Preparing it is quite a monstrous job, arranging 43 years of collectibles and equipment. Additionally, she is hoping the builder will allow them to have a demolition sale in order to preserve some of the older pieces, glass knobs on doors, the bannister, the front door and other items inherent to the building. It was agreed part of the demolition permit process was for James Hagler to come in and take photographs on behalf of Venice Museum. The whole property sold included the Inn with 10 large rooms and 11 bathrooms, the Steketees single family home at 317 Ponce De Leon with eight bedrooms and ve baths and a vacant lot behind the inn on Nassau Street South. They have been in business in Venice for 42 years, beginning when they opened the inn building as Elmars Guest Home, an independent senior living facility. Built 88 years ago in the original part of the Mediterranean revival style, the inn was part of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers development of Venice. HORSEFROM PAGE 1combination business and residence. They hold hotel and restaurant licenses. Built in 1926 by Robert Marvin, head of real estate for the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, it was his family home. It is reputedly now one of the last, large, grand old homes remaining on the island of Venice. The large Banyan tree out front was planted around 1928, a donation from Thomas Edison who stayed there. It is understood a national tire company acquired Banyan trees from India, believing they could make rubber from the sap. It did not work out so they donated the trees. Banyan House was named in 1936 and it is known to have operated as a guest house operated by a schoolteacher in 1960s. The McCormicks purchased Banyan House in 1986, re-opening it as a European-style bed and breakfast guest house in the winter of 1987, having carried out major renovations. The walls of the six-room property are a foot thick, and it was a hurricane shelter in the 1930s and 1940s. Adjoining the solarium is the elegant living room with Victorian furnishings around the Italian-sculptured replace, together with the high beamed ceiling and red tile oor. It is in the Venezia Park Historic District of Venice but not on the historic register because previous owners had changed the original windows, Susan McCormick said. We still have and use the rst Venice swimming pool built 1926 up above ground, which we have maintained and it is now heated. Their decision is to enjoy life instead of working seven days a week, as they have for 28 years. The decision as to the future will depend upon the buyer; the owners have it listed as a private residence with a price of $798,000. History is so important, so I would hate to see the property replaced by new development, she said. We have enjoyed the business a lot and it attracts a lot of vacationers from Europe.BANYANFROM PAGE 1 After a busy holiday season, Santa decided to take some time o and spend a day relaxing on Englewood Beach. 481714 All You Need To Know About Floors Carpet Ceramic Laminate Hardwood Vinyl Area Rugs Visit Our Second Location In Lakewood Ranch (San Marco Plaza) Financing Available for Qualified Customers 825 E.

SPORTSCONTACT US ROB SMITH SPORTS EDITOR 941-207-1107 rsmith@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 12A WEDNESDAY JANUARY 15, 2014 HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALLBRIEFS | 12Laura Hackett is glad to be back. She was recruited by several basketball programs, including outof-state, after graduation from Venice High School but decided not to play last year. I was feeling kind of burned out, she said. During the summer, she worked as a camp counselor coaching basketball and re-evaluated. I saw how much I loved it, she said. It made me want to play again. Hackett trained during the summer, then indicated to coach Holly Borchers of Florida Southern College, one of her original suitors, her desire to play. Hackett is now one of three post players in a rotation for the Moccasins (4-9), whose losing skid has reached seven. She is a very aggressive offensive post player, Borchers said. Hackett is among eight newcomers to the 13-player roster, which is missing four of last years top ve scorers. The players continue to battle despite the losses, Hackett said. Were still ghting, said Hackett, a sophomore academically. Were getting closer and closer to winning. Some really key players are out (with injury). We have to do what we can. The inux of young personnel has made her year-long absence less of an issue for her. She said she was a bit intimidated about the college game, a feeling that has subsided because shes learning alongside other newcomers. I feel like everybodys starting from scratch, said Hackett, whose season-high seven rebounds came in the opener. Im getting more confident. I feel I definitely can play with everybody. Hackett has played every game without a start, averaging a teamlow 8.9 minutes. She also averages three points and 2.5 rebounds per game. The biggest thing she needs to work on is her conditioning, Borchers said. Shes going to need even more time to get in the best shape. Hackett agreed the layoff hurt her conditioning, though it is xable, as her coach said. Taking a year off when everyone else is training is huge, Hackett said. The more I play, itll get easier. Its all kind of the process, of coming back into it (basketball). Hackett has been effective as a secondary contributor, providing multiple, even consecutive, games of productivity. She had seven points, ve rebounds and two assists during a Nov. 30 win over University of Puerto Rico-Bayamon. She had a season-high nine points and four rebounds in 13 minutes during a blowout loss to Nova Southeastern University in the following game. Reader: Submit an Away At College item to BKLE3@aol.com.

Games held on PHOTO PROVIDED BY FLORIDA SOUTHERN COLLEGERight: Venice High grad Laura Hackett is averaging three points per game for the Florida Southern College womens basketball team after taking a year o from the sport. Lemon Bay High School saw a big lead disappear in the fourth quarter, losing to Venice 61-60 on a last-second shot Saturday afternoon. The Indians John Cokley hit a 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds left for the game-winner. The ball bounced up off the rim and came back into the basket. Lemon Bay tried to get off a desperation shot, but Montrel Jacksons attempt missed the mark, and Venice came away the winner after trailing by 16 points entering the final quarter. We made too many mistakes in the final quarter, Lemon Bay coach Sean Huber said. I think we made 20 turnovers. But give all the credit to Venice. They rallied back and did a great job. Lemon Bay led 47-31 entering the final quarter and held that 16-point lead for two more minutes before the Indians started chipping it away. They tied the score on a field goal by Cokley to make the score 58-58, but Lemon Bays Brian McGill made two free throws to put the Manta Rays ahead before Cokleys game-winner. The Manta Rays were hurt when leading scorer Joe Garza fouled out early in the final quarter. He finished with 14 points, nine of which came in the third quarter when the Manta Rays outscored the visitors 20-11. Jackson and McGill both added 10 points. Venice (10-7) rallied with a balanced attack. Brent Store scored 16 points and Dom Marino made 14 as they kept the Indians fairly close up to halftime. But Cokley and Langston Provitt got hot in the final quarter to push the Indians past Lemon Bay. Cokley scored all eight of his points in the final quarter and Provitt had six of his eight in that quarter before fouling out. We just started making some of our shots, Venice coach James Slaton said. We werent making much before (the nal quarter). This was a great comeback, as great as youll ever see. We were down by 16 points with just six minutes left.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A $$ S AV E MONEY $$ Shop the Classifieds. SAVE LIVES. GIVE BLOOD Prior to Monday, Charlotte High School hardly played any games at full strength. The Tarpons were missing players to injury in almost every game this season, including as many as seven in one game. But their fortunes finally changed for a District 4A-11 game against Venice, and Charlotte showed that its complete team is a lot better than the one that finished in last place in the district. The Tarpons jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first 15 minutes against the second-seeded Indians and used a late goal to nail down a 4-1 victory. It was a far cry from the two regular-season matches between the two teams, which Venice won with ease. Over the last six years that Ive been here at Charlotte High School, for whatever reason, when you say the word Venice, everybody gets scared, Tarpons coach Toni Ivankovic said. I know what our girls are capable of when they play at the level that theyre capable of, the skill and the heart they have. I know they can beat teams like Venice. It just takes them all playing and playing hard and they did that tonight. Ivankovic said district games always come down to heart, and that Taylor Doeble and Heidi Ruth are her two players who can will the team to victories. That became clear five minutes into the game when Doeble received a long pass just outside of the box, dribbled into the diving Indians goalkeeper, jumped over her and sent the first goal into the back of the net. Ten minutes later, Ruth launched an unblockable shot into the top of the net from outside of the box to give Charlotte a 2-0 lead, underscoring that this game wouldnt be like the previous two. After a goal by Venices Sarah Mattson, Charlotte regained a two-goal lead just before halftime. Doeble took a shot with pace that was saved, but Savana Burdick-Perez was in the right place to score on the putback. The Charlotte contingent in the crowd, which matched the Venice contingent, watched the second half with excited nervousness as the Tarpons controlled the ball and kept Venice from getting easy opportunities. After 35 minutes of scoreless soccer in the half, Magen Lowe ended the tension by slipping past the defense and sliding a goal into the corner of the net to seal the win. When the referee blew the whistle to end the game, the Charlotte girls celebrated by hugging each other, while tears filled the eyes of many Venice players, some of whom had just played their last game.

Sis Blecman, of Venice placed an advertisement in 1998 in Miniature Collector magazine, a national publication for dollhouse and miniatures collectors. She was looking for kindred spirits to form a club in the Venice area. Fortunately for her, one of the ads readers lived right around the corner and came knocking at her door, expressing interest, then brought along one of her friends, with another joining them. And that was the beginning of lifelong friendships as well as sharing creative talents, expressing them in 1-inch to 14-inch scale. Marilyn Klein, now president of Best Little Things (BLT), says shes the titular head of the group through default. No one else wanted to be. But they each share their particular talents when it comes to projects. When any wood is needed, Joan Turner says, My husband can do that, and at the next meeting, shell show up with perfectly cut pieces for the project du jour. Turner splits her time between their home in Virginia and Florida, with her daughter and grand daughter taking them on frequent visits to the Gulf Coast. Blecman noted that each member has a special talent. For example, Marge Holman can make something out of nothing, By MOLLY CROMWELLSPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUNBIG | 7 Brian Friels Philadelphia, Here I Come! is more than a coming-of-age story. Directed by Frank Galati, the Asolo Rep production opened Friday in the Mertz Theatre where it will play in rotating repertory through April 12. Friels work takes place on one night at his family home in the fictional town of Ballybeg, Ireland. Employing two actors to portray both Gareth Gar ODonnell (Christian Conn) and his alter ego or subconscious self (Bernard Balbot), the work shows some of the things that might have influenced the young man in his decision to move to Philadelphia. We meet Gars father, and employer, S.B. Screwballs ODonnell (Douglas Jones); the family housekeeper, Madge Mulhern (Peggy Roeder) who has looked after the young man since the loss of his mother when he was a youngster; and his former girlfriend and lost love Kate Doogan (Amanda Lynn Mullen). Other characters who likely inuenced him are former teacher Master Boyle (David Breitbarth), Senator Doogan (Mark Konrad), somewhat self-absorbed Canon OByrne (Andrew Sellon) and Gars three somewhat shallow friends: Joe (Jefferson McDonald), Ned (Brian Nemeroff) and Tom (Cale Haupert). Jones, a longtime (28 years) member of the Asolo Rep Company, is one of the productions strengths. Seeming to remove his teeth at the dining table, he injects some comedy even as he manages to poignantly portray a father who is both a somewhat cold-hearted employer but also a sad man who will miss his son yet cannot nd a way to let him know that. Breitbarth, an Asolo Rep veteran of 18 seasons, portrays Gars former teacher as a sad sort who might even be sad that he lacked the courage to make such a move save for the fact that he is more in need of an immediate if not lasting cure for his woes in the form of a drink. Roeder, in her fourth season as a guest artist, manages to be both surrogate mother and loyal housekeeper to the ODonnells. Gar and Gars subconscious or alter ego are the sum and substance however, with timing the tie that binds. Conn and Balbot manage that almost magically so that the private Gar manages to share his feelings Asolos opener is a wee bit touchingBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR PHOTO BY CLIFF ROLESBernard Balbot and Christian Conn in Asolo Reps production of Philadelphia, Here I Come.ASOLOS | 4 481159 1694 S Tamiami Tr Venice 492-6000 rrf 481635 idra.% I-

2B SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 Venice Theatres Stage II production of Superior Donuts is a tasty treat in many ways. Written by Tracy Letts, the play takes place in a small doughnut shop in Chicagos Uptown neighborhood, circa 2009-2010. The shop is owned by Arthur Przybyszewski (Jerry Zezas) who seems to have lost interest since his divorce and, more recently, the death of his former wife, Magda. As the story begins, a black cop, Ofcer James Bailey (Brandon Michael Fleming), and a white female cop, Ofcer Randy Osteen (Margie Spies), have arrived because of a break-in and vandalism at the shop. Actually the rst person on the scene was Max Tarasov (Neil Levine), a Russian immigrant who wants the space in order to expand his own business in the same strip center. Color and ethnicity is a big part of this play which, in addition to using strong adult language, also involves many substories relating to prejudicial thinking. Adding some comedy relief from the beginning is Lady Boyle (Lynne Buhle) who seems to be a quasi-homeless old woman who perhaps also has a drinking problem and lives in her own world. Next to arrive before the reopening of the shop is Franco Wicks (Brandon Michael Butler) a young black student in serious need of a job. He seems quite intelligent and in fact has written a book, The Great American Novel, yet it turns out that he has a rather serious demon on his back, in the form of bookie Luther Flynn (Steven ODea) and his enforcer, Kevin Magee (Jeremy Guerrero). Also appearing is another Russian, Kiril Ivakin (Dan Cavanagh) an associate of Max. Guerrero was an 11th-hour substitute for Jim Abde and, as he always does, acquitted himself quite well. Ably directed by Kelly Wynn Woodland with an excellent set by Kirk V. Hughes, Superior Donuts has an excellent cast that mostly comprises actors with plenty of experience yet also includes two actors making their debuts Spies and Zezas. Spies acquits herself quite well and by the second act, seemed quite at home. Zezas, in the main role of the doughnut shop owner, never missed a beat and performed as though he has been doing it all his life. Having recently sold a landscaping business and working on a Ph.D. to go with his MBA, Zezas not only had plenty of lines to learn but also managed timing, a ght scene and several soliloquies like a pro. Talk about a strong cast this is it. Others on the creative staff included lighting designer Brian Freeman, sound designer Dorian Boyd, costume designer Stephanie Gift, ght choreographer Peter Ivanov and combat coordinator Jeremy Guerrero. This work is so well-written and this production so well-staged and acted that the strong language fades into the background as the story takes its rightful place at center stage. Superior Donuts is performed in the Yvonne T. Pinkerton Theatre, with seats on three walls. It will continue through Jan. 26, with performances Tuesday-Saturday at 8 pm. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Venice Theatre is at 140 W. Tampa Ave., on the island, in downtown Venice. Leave the children at home because of the adult language and themes but do not miss this show. It is that good.

Balbot worked with Galati in last seasons Asolo production of . Galati did well to cast him in this role. As Gars somewhat shallow (or are they?) friends, McDonald, Nemeroff and Haupert inject additional humor and pathos to the story, while also having the chance to play meaty, if smaller roles. The overall story is an important addition to the Asolo Reps ongoing five-year American Character study as it shows both the kind of person who grapples with the decision and then comes to America to become part of its fabric, even as this story shows those who likely would never come. There will be several opportunities to participate in story circles (Jan. 25 and 29), talkbacks (Feb. 4 and March 29), meet the actors (Feb. 9 and March 16) and pre-show conversations (Feb. 13) for Philadelphia Here I Come. Admission is included with play tickets. Talkbacks follow the performances. At 11 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 29, Galati will speak in the Cook Theatre about this production.

Nothings changed. Dick is 90 now, but hes still got game. And the medals to prove it. Last October, Dick traveled from his home in Englewood to the World Senior Games in St. George, Utah, and walked off with a gold medal in singles tennis, age group 90-94. OK, there was only one other competitor. And he took Dick to three sets. With a 10-8 tie-breaker. Honest to God, its as tired as Ive ever been playing tennis, he said last week. When we traded sides we would take so long, one time the tournament director came over and asked us if we were nished. So they didnt exactly torch the court, speed-wise. But still, 90? I got to thinking about all the sports I had done, how I had hung in there all this time and was reasonably successful. No matter where I was, I always participated and did better than most, he recalled. An understatement, really. Amazing is more like it. Dick is a tall, slender athlete. Hes always been a player, one sport or another. He grew up playing tennis in San Diego. He also was a high-jumper in high school, and ran cross-country and played lightweight tackle football. (He still weighs 155.) Dick joined the Navy as an ofcer trainee (the V-12 program) in 1942 and was sent to Southern Methodist University. There, he was a walk-on on the basketball team. I was really excited because I hadnt played much, Dick said. Before he could play, he was transferred by the Navy to Georgia Tech. He made the team there too. Still, he admits, his hoops game had holes. One coach, Bob Polk, once told him: Youre one of the best shots I ever saw in my life, but you cant dribble, you cant pass and you cant guard. Polk took him under his wing and Dick ourished. He was a starter for three years. He was SEC scoring leader in the 1944-1945 season. He was honorable mention all-American twice. He also was on the tennis team for four years. Pretty darn good. Still, Dick said, Youve got to realize that during the war the only guys who were at school were either V-12 (trainees) or 4F. So you really didnt have a lot of competition. I could do pretty well against a 4F. After school, Dick worked as an aerospace engineer in San Diego, Atlanta and St. Louis. He also kept playing tennis. Key to his game was a power slice he mastered early at Georgia Tech. Everybody hates it. Its nasty, but its effective and its really why I have had any success at all, he said. Plenty of success. On a wall in Dicks house is a bulletin board with the 18 medals he has won since 1999 at state, national and world Senior Games. He has another 16 plaques. Awhile back, he gave away 100 trophies. No room. Dick loves the World Senior Games. He plans to return this year. He may even return after he retires the tennis racket. Just to hang out. And he gures he may have enough room on the bulletin board for another decade of medals. Ill be almost 100, he said. Stephen Baumann is a member of the Suns editorial board.

This is an awesome turnout, and an unprecedented event because we have so many experts, said John McCarthy, inter im director of SCOPE who moderated the Ancient Waters Foundation forum, adding that organizers capped the panel at 10, but they could have had so many more. During the forum a four-hour event the experts stressed the importance of preservation, further historical study, potential educational benets and the need for new research, espe cially the kind that could establish a hydrological baseline to note how Warm Mineral Springs and Little Salt Spring may change as time passes. Representatives of the Friends of Warm Mineral Springs a group not afliated with the founda tion currently are suing the city, citing environmental damage to the Springs sinkhole because of plastic sheeting at the bottom. However foundation president Bill Goetz says the plastic is protecting megafauna (large animal) remains. We need new data to compare to the old before we can say whats being (environmentally) impacted, said Sarasota County Senior Hydrologist Cliff Harrison, adding temperature changes, water quality and ow in both springs all need to be measured. If we dont know whats going on with the water quality, we dont know how it impacts the artifacts. A 10,000-year-old human skull once was discovered in WMS, and some artifacts in Little Salt have been dated to 12,000 years. Other artifacts have yet to be uncovered. According to John Gifford, archaeologist, previous University of Miami professor and director of science at Little Salt; and Steve Koski, ar chaeologist and site manager at Little Salt, WMS and Little Salt are 30,000 and 14,000 years old, respectively. WMS, jointly owned by the city of North Port and Sarasota County, currently is closed. Little Salt, which has limited accessibility, mostly only to researchers, is in the process of being deeded from current owner UM to Sarasota County. There are all kinds of great questions that need to be answered. We have 10,000 years of information in these springs, said Michele Cotty-Loger, Ancient Waters board member and archaeologist with Cardno ENTRIX, an environmental consulting company. Going forward, it would be really nice to draw researchers to the area, and students from far aeld. Were standing on the threshold of important decisions that will impact our community and our grandchildren. North Port resident Lori Lunz thought the event was fabulous. I didnt expect such a turnout, she said. Theres so much information, and these people (on the panel) are so knowledgeable. Their visions of what could possibly come out of this, the education for kids and stuff, its very heartening. Shari Kosmerl, a Venice seasonal resident who also hails from Seneca, N.Y, was at the forum with her husband Frank. She also was glad to see a large number attend, since shes talked to many year-round residents who dont even know the two springs exist. Its like talking to someone at home who says, Ive never been to Niagara Falls, she said. Its in your backyard how could you not know its here? Following a break during which a complimentary lunch was provided, the panel took questions from the audience, including: how the area might tap into money Gov. Rick Scott wants to spend on tourism, building an all-encompassing infor mational website on both springs, and how to best protect the hydrology of both spring sites. The Ancient Waters Foundation, which sponsored the event, is a not-for-prot corporation that facilitates education and scientic research of Floridas freshwater springs and waterways, in order to preserve them for posterity.Email: annek@sun-herald.comAncient Waters forum draws a curious crowdBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER annek@sun-herald.comA panel of 10 experts in archaeology, hydrology, geology, paleontology and more answered questions about the impor tance of the two springs to the area throughout history, as well as possibilities for the two sites in the future.

After an early career in Broadway musicals and many television shows, Koerner retired to raise her three sons. Three decades later, she returned to performing. Persuaded by a cabaret coach that she was a natural as a solo cabaret singer, she tried it and soon found herself addicted to the genre. Shes been delighting audiences ever since in New York and San Miguel, Mexico, her second home, with her original shows. For almost two decades now, she has also been conducting So Youve Always Wanted To Sing? workshops, where students enjoy a friendly and relaxed environment in which they are both audience and participants. Based on a master class format, the course focuses on both the mechanics of singing and the techniques for getting to the heart of a song and communicating it. Koerner provides caring criticism and guidance for improvement. There is tremendous value gained from observing other singers, she says. We all have the same challenges: vocal tension, inadequate breathing and, mostly fear; fear of allowing ourselves to relax and connect deeply with the material. Her rst workshop in the Venice area will begin Tuesday, Jan. 21, 7 to 9 p.m. This six-week course will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Venice, 1971 Pinebrook Road. Students are asked to bring to the rst class a song they want to sing. Tuition is $120.

Members of the Sarasota County Commission are joining Friends of the Jacaranda Public Library and library staff in celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Frances T. Bourne Jacaranda Library. The yearlong celebration kicks off with a reception Friday, Jan. 24, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., which includes guest speakers starting at 6 p.m. The celebration continues Saturday, Jan. 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with activities for the entire family. All festivities will be held at Frances T. Bourne Jacaranda Library, 4143 Woodmere Park Blvd., Venice. Events are free and open to the public. On Friday, Bob Vedder of the Library Foundation for Sarasota County and former publisher and general manager of the Venice Gondolier Sun will serve as master of ceremonies. Featured speakers include Charles Hines, Sarasota County Commission chair; Sen. Nancy Detert, District 28; Andrea Taylor, library manager; and Scott Dowdy, president of the Friends of the Library. On Saturday, Jan. 25, the library will host a Wii tournament and have face painting for teens, plus a bounce house, games and art activities for children. The library has been serving Venice residents since its construction in 1994. In the late 1980s, Sarasota County Library Advisory Board members and Venice residents recognized the need for expanded library services there, and with funding from a voter-approved, one-cent surtax for new capital improvement projects, Frances T. Bourne spearheaded the project. Bourne, a lifelong literacy and education champion, who helped incorporate the Friends organization in 1992, was a leader on its original board of directors, and shared her knowledge and passion to ensure the success of the library. The librarys grand opening was held Jan. 15, 1994. On Dec. 10, 1995, the Sarasota County Commission renamed the library the Frances T. Bourne Jacaranda Library in honor of the woman who worked to create it. The Friends of the Library continues that legacy of service as the primary sponsor of the 20th anniversary celebration.

January 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 Ive always wanted to try new restaurants, but it wasnt until I became the Lets Go! editor that I dared to do so more frequently. Now, each week that I read the dining out stories my writers submit, I say to myself, Oooh! Ive got to try that! And I do. Three that I have tried recently are Culvers in Port Charlotte, Bobarinos in Englewood, and the new Plaza Mexico in Venice. Already familiar with the Plaza Mexico in Port Charlotte, I can say that the one in Venice lives up to its name. I reccommend the jumbo margaritas. Each of these three restaurants differ from one another in what they specialize in. Culvers, for example, is a fast food chain but their food is unlike any fast food chain Ive ever eaten at in the area. Are any of you familiar with Whataburger? Being from Texas, I grew up with Whataburger, and Culvers reminded me of that, but better. You order your food at the counter and you take a number to your table where you will wait not much longer than you do at a typical fast food place for your food to be delivered to you. I recommend the Butterburgers and you have to try the ice cream. One of the restaurants Ive tried more than once is Bobarinos because its just down the road from the office. We often take a trip down there for their special lunch prices. For $5 you get two ginormous New York-style slices of pizza and a drink. The pizza is quite tasty, and I have to admit, Ive never been a fan of thin pizza. But this one is one of the best Ive ever had. Before taking on Lets Go!, dining out meant going to Applebees, Bob Evans or Chilis, but now I cant even remember the last time I went to any of them. Dont get me wrong, these places are awesome too, but I encourage you to give the local, smaller restaurants a try. You wont be disappointed. G ABRIELA R AMIREZ Lets Go! Editor Last week it seemed I was playing around every night and writing about the plays and road trips and so much more by day. This week is a bit lighter with last nights opening of Boeing Boeing at Venice Theatre and Fridays opening of Other Desert Cities at Asolo Rep. For Asolo Rep tickets, call 941-351-8000. Saturday, I will attend the Ginny Owens concert at Venice Presbyterian Church. Owens is a singersongwriter who has been blind since the age of 2. She has received three Dove Awards and had three albums on Billboard charts. To nd out if some seats are still available, call the church box oce at 941-488-5525. She will perform at 3 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person and credit cards are accepted. Her appearance is part of the churchs Venice Community Concert Series. Still to come this season are the Eroica Trio (Feb. 22) and the Barbary Coast Dixieland Band on March 8. Venice Theatre concert series continues Jan. 19-20 with The Legends of DooWop, followed Jan. 26-27 by the Capitol Steps. I have lost track of how often the Steps have lled Venice Theatre. Call 941-488-1115 if you want tickets for any of Venice Theatr es oerings. Extreme Vegas continues in Circus Sarasotas giant tent at Tuttle and 12th in Sarasota. According to the ads, this show proves that not everything in Vegas stays in Vegas. If you love the circus and if you live in the Venice/Sarasota area, it is almost a requirement, plan also to attend Circus Sarasotas winter show which runs in the same tent Feb. 7-23. If you can get tickets for the opening weekend shows, thanks to ABC, you will pay just $10 or $25 per person. Call 941-355-9335 for tickets.

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 15 21, 2014 MOVIES AP FILE PHOTOThis undated le photo provided by Paramount Pictures shows a scene from the horror thriller lm, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, written and directed by Christopher. B. Landon. Paranormal Activity: The Marked OnesPrediction: One year from now, when 2014 Oscar nominations are announced, the lm Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones will not be on anyones list. There are people who enjoy the intensity and creative genius of a good horror movie. But, from my perspective, this ick is simply Horror-ible. The Marked Ones begins with young Latino pals Jesse (Andre Jacobs) and Hector (Jorge Diaz), goong around with a video camera. Theyre having fun in their urban California neighbor hood, even lming each other doing stunts, such as sledding down a stairwell in a laundry basket. Jessies cute sister Marisol (Gabrielle Walsh) hangs with the boys and before long theyre lming grandma getting drunk and observing neighbor Anna, who they refer to as bruja, Spanish for witch. Eventually, Jesse becomes possessed by a demon and the spookiness slowly escalates. The use of a shaky video camera in a horror lm was once unique, particularly in The Blair Witch Project (1999). But I wasnt prepared for this method of lming to span an entire movie, to the point where it was monotonous and ridiculous. The Marked Ones is low budget stu, lled with spooky corridors and door openings that could lead to sinister surprises. But, even with eerie plastic partitions in a haunted house scene, the atmosphere falls short of numerous Halloween spook houses that many annually visit or view on TV news shows. There were some lame attempts at humor early in this lm, before the whole movie got inevitably possessed. And there were clever moments of Jesse working a haunted, old Simon game, instead of the traditional Ouija board. But there were also the obligatory jump out of your seat scenes, appearing suddenly and noisily (of course) before a cut to black. The teenage girls sitting behind me in the theatre screamed oh my God at each of these, so Im assuming this was all scary. Surprisingly, The Marked Ones is the fth lm in the Paranormal Activity series, so there is obviously a cult viewer following. And the producers are following the ticket sales to the bank. Now thats what I call Horror-ible. By TOM LOVASKOSUN CORRESPONDENT says Dont Go!OPENING THIS WEEKDevils DueR | Language and some bloody images. After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earli er-than-planned pregnancy.

8 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 15 21, 2014 MOVIES Oscar nominations for the 86th Annual Academy Awards (2013 lms) will be announced tomorrow and the Annual Awards Show will be televised on March 2. Ive viewed plenty of lms yet probably missed some good ones that were only at selected theatres and may be viable award contend ers. Meaning, like you, Ill have to wait for the rental or TV broadcast. Nevertheless, I have selected my own 2013 personal favorites. Here they are: Best Motion Picture of the Year Gravity. Its simply the most creative, interesting and well-executed lm to come around in years. Also, it should grab an Oscar for Best Achievement in Cinematography. Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role Sandra Bullock in Gravity. Shes great at comedy, but her more serious part in Gravity puts her at the top of my list. Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips. Hes tremendous in a tough, emotion al role from one of the best movies of the year. Kudos also to veteran Bruce Dern for his career-topping part in Nebraska. Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role Jake Gyllenhaal in Prisoners. He may not even get nominated but was certainly engaging as a detective in this highly suspenseful lm. Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle. Not just in this movie, performances by this young actress really light up the screen. Best Achievement in Directing Martin Scorsese in The Wolf of Wall Street. Its just because, even with those weird eyebrows, he is, after all, Martin Scorsese. Best Achievement in Visual Eects Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Giant spiders, barrel-roll ing dwarves and so much more itll leave you exhausted. An honorable eects mention to Thor: The Dark World, especially for depicting a really cool place called Asgard. Best Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling and also Best Achievement in Costume Design Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. It was worth all 2 hours and 41 minutes to witness a clever assortment of welldressed dwarves, elves and evildoers. Best Animated Feature Film of the Year Frozen. If little girls voted, it would sweep every category. This is progressive Disney animation at its nest. Best Soundtrack American Hustle. Forget Best Original Score or Song, you just cant beat the rollicking and appropriate s rock and jazz soundtrack in this great lm. Worst Movie of 2013 (theres no actual category for this) The Lone Ranger (well forgive you just once, Johnny Depp).Its Oscar time!Lets Go!s movie critic Tom Lovasko gives his insight on who the winners should be Frozen Tom Hanks Sandra BullockIve intentionally left out some of the less exciting categories like documentaries, short films (have you actually seen one lately?), sound and editing. These are awards usually received by large groups of unknowns wearing tuxedos and formal gowns while parading joyfully onstage. Maybe the celebrities at the front tables care but most of us realize thats why the award show usually goes way too long. Some things never change. Hope you enjoy my predictions uh, sorry, choices.

10 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 15 21, 2014 DINING OUTFriday, Aug. 13, 2004, was a day that no one in the Charlotte County area will ever forget. It was then that Hurricane Charley took that fated right turn into the Peace River. Most of the county's residents were aected in some way by the monster storm's direct hit, and Monty's Restaurant & Pizzeria owner Diane Caputo was one of them. On that day, she lost her livelihood of more than 20 years. "My father had oered me the opportunity to open my own restaurant in 1983, and he nanced it," Caputo said. "Over those 22 years, I had made plans to enlarge the restaurant and then Charley hit." Winds and water from the hurricane destroyed the building her restaurant was in, and because of the horric damage all over the county, it was dicult to nd contractors to help her rebuild it. For a time, she tried running the restaurant from a building across the street, but for Caputo, it just wasn't the same. "I just decided to rebuild it on the original spot," she said. "We broke ground in April 2013, but the planning of it took years." Two weeks ago, Caputo opened the new Monty's, and so far, things are going very well. This version of the restaurant is quite a bit bigger. In the original spot there were about 2,200 square feet, while this location has almost 4,000. And there are both inside and screened outside dining options, as well as inside and outside bars. As far as the menu goes, Caputo says that if you were a regular at Monty's before, you will be happy to see all of your favorites, like the pizza, salad bar and veal and seafood entrees. One of the major changes has been the drink menu. "The past week and this week, we've been introducing our special martinis," she said. "We have Italian Wedding Cake, the Ultimate Chocolate, Cucumber, Apple/Ginger and Honey martinis. I'm always daring to do something exciting." Caputo has also added gluten-free choices to her menu, taking quite a bit of time to research foods for her customers with dietary concerns. In the future for Monty's will be more specialty drinks and happy hours, complete with entertain ment. For one of the rst performances on the schedule, Caputo has booked local favorite Paul Cottrell from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19. During his show, Monty's will feature 2-for-1 well drinks, white and red Sangria, some specialty Long Island Ice Teas, coee drinks, margaritas and more. Caputo says that introducing fun new items on her menu is her way of rewarding all her loyal patrons who have supported her during the years of transition that have led her to this point. "All my customers have been very patient and understanding," she said. "I wanted to make this (new location) a restaurant for all dierent groups of people, and try to keep the prices as reasonable as possible." Monty's Restaurant & Pizzeria is at 2515 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda. It is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

January 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 11 DINING OUTHector Alvarez and his family do not waste any time. In May of 2011, they opened their first Plaza Mexico Restaurant Bar & Grill in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, a year ago, they opened their second one in Port Charlotte and two and a half months ago, they opened their third location in Venice. You might say things have been going well. "We saw the opportunity and we said, 'We have to open one in Venice,'" Alvarez said. "My brother and sister run the one in Port Charlotte, I am here and we have another brother at the restaurant in R.I." Alvarez said he had grown up in the restaurant business, working in his first job at 15 as a dishwasher for his uncle's place in North Carolina. Through the years, he would test out various restaurant jobs, to get a feel for all aspects of the business. "I've always liked working hard," he said. "In 2005, we worked with a different restaurant in Port Charlotte. It was the only Mexican restaurant in town and the line was always around the building. I was a server there." The family saw a need for their restaurant in Port Charlotte, and they saw the same hole in the marketplace in Venice. What they offer fans of that type of food is authentic family recipes from a family-run business. Alvarez is an active owner, and you never know if he'll be in the kitchen (he is the chef) or in the front of the house greeting guests, or even busing tables. "I can do it all," he said. He says that a couple of his menu favorites also seem to be the most popular among the rapidly developing Venice clientele. The Fajita Vallarta consists of beef, chicken, shrimp and chorizo, and is served with guacamole salad, beans and tortillas. Alambres are one of the specialties of the house, and has grilled chicken or beef, with cheese, onions and peppers, and are served with rice, beans, pico de gallo and tortillas. In the front of the 160-seat restaurant is a long, granite bar, where you can get drink specials each day and a two-for-one happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. There is plenty of space for functions in the restaurant, but Alvarez says that he does quite a bit of outside catering as well. And though you will usually be able to find your favorites on the menu, don't be surprised if you see some new additions every once in a while. "Because I'm the chef, too, I change a lot of things around," Alvarez said. "But what I really like to do is authentic Mexican food, good margaritas and good prices." Plaza Mexico Restaurant Bar & Grill is at 405 U.S. 41 Bypass North, in Venice. It is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m Friday and Saturday.

If there was ever any doubt about the primary focus of the fair, one need look no further than the numbers. "We have 150 kids showing animals this year," said Ray Smith, director of the fair. "There are 70 some kids showing hogs, 23 showing steers and then some showing breeding animals. It's fun for the kids, and keeps them occupied and out of trouble." This fair was chartered by the State of Florida in 1954 as a nonprot organization, and has never received a dime of govern ment funding. But each year, it gives the young people of DeSoto County an opportunity to show o their talents and skills, and somehow manages to give out seven $1,000 scholarships to local high school seniors. "We support our county's youth," Smith said. "We even have local high school juniors and sophomores who do our parking and we give them the proceeds." The livestock exhibitors have worked many months in order to prepare their animals for the fair. They have been recording their animals progress in their project book, while also keeping nancial records, developing feeding programs and maintaining the medical records of their animals. Besides hogs and steers, the exhibitors are also showing rabbits, chickens and goats, as well as breeding animals. Also, some of the children will be displaying their artistic skills at the fair. "For the 4H kids that don't show animals, there is a place inside where they can show what they've done," Smith said. "We also have a community craft booth where anyone can show anything that they want." The fair will also include the always popular beauty pageants and talent shows. There will be a Little Miss DeSoto Pageant for third-, fourthand fth-grade girls, a DeSoto Princess Pageant and the Miss DeSoto Pageant. The talent contests will be held for elementary school, middle school and high school-aged participants. And what would a county fair be without rides and games? "We've used the same midway for the past 20 years," Smith said. "It's Hildebrand Midway of Fun and they do a great job." Some of the attractions planned for the midway include a Giant Gondola Wheel with spectacular LED light show, the Ring Of Fire, a Five-Story Roller Coaster, Drop Tower, Gravitron, Orbitor, an incredible Zip Line, an expansive Kiddie Land and, of course, a multitude of games of skill and foods from around the world. Smith says that the size of the DeSoto County Fair may not be on the scale of some of the larger surrounding ones, but this is one fair that has its heart in the right place. "We're mainly a little fair that lets the kids exhibit animals in our barn," he said. "What we do is strive to support the youth of our county."

In a rst Kens Comments session on Jan. 8 at the Venice Public Library, Maestro Kenneth Bowermeister, conductor of the Venice Symphony, spoke about how Gershwins ability to manipulate all forms of music set him apart from other popular jazz musicians of his era. Gershwin died tragically at the age of 38, explained Maestro Bowermeister, but his music still speaks to us very well. I loved Gershwins music since I was a kid and was surprised to learn that unlike most jazz musicians of 1920s and s, he was classically trained. At an early age he studied music and attended concerts led by big name composers in NYC, but he was also fascinated with and inuenced by honky-tonk styles. He began by recording dozens of songs on early piano rolls, and he became a piano accompanist for Broadway musicals. Critical reaction to Gershwins early com positions was mixed. Was he writing opera or Broadway songs? After the initial failure of Porgy and Bess, now considered Gershwins greatest folk opera masterpiece, Gershwin returned to SWonderful! Pops Concert to feature Dick HymanBy CHRIS KOURAPISSUN CORRESPONDENTcomposing and collaborating on musical scores with his brother Ira and achieved great success, ac cording to Maestro Bowermeister. The SWonderful! concert begins with the Of Thee I Sing Overture a comical satire about the American Political System, and continues with such favorites as Swanee, SWonderful, Ive Got a Crush on You, Porgy and Bess selections, and the lively Strike up the Band.

Longtime Venice resident, music arranger and composer, Dick Hyman, will be a featured soloist during the concert, and the audience will be treated to his improvisations in the style of Gershwin. Hyman, who has recorded over 100 albums as a soloist, has performed with jazz greats Benny Goodman, Lester Young, and Charlie Parker. He often composes and performs chamber, symphonic, and choral works for Sarasota-based groups Gloria Musicae and La Musica. As soloist he continues to perform in U.S. and Canadian festivals.

14 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 15 21, 2014 AT THE THEATERThis Friday, Saturday, and Sunday veteran actors Rita Corn and Jack Rabito will be performing in a special fundraising production of "The Gin Game," the Pulitzer prize-winning play by D.L. Coburn that rst starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn. Often referred to as a tragic comedy, the play takes place during a weekly gin rummy game in a state-run retirement home. Fonsia Dorsey and Weller Martin are residents who develop a friendship while playing cards. Fonsia is new to the game; Weller is an expert. Tension develops when Fonsia's beginner's luck begins to grate on Weller's nerves. This is a play for adults who appreciate poignant scenes about lonely people attempting to connect by sharing personal stories that they've never shared with another soul. Both actors agree that the play's success can be attributed to a gifted playwright and a great script. In October they performed as Fonsia and Weller at the Langdon Playhouse in Port Charlotte to sold-out audiences and rave reviews. Proceeds from all three shows at the Lemon Bay Playhouse will go toward reducing the mortgage on the Playhouse Annex. Several years ago, the Board of the Lemon Bay Playhouse found itself in desperate need of more space. When a building next door at 80 W. Dearborn Street became available, they leased the building as a storage facility and rehearsal hall. In 2013, it was decided that it was more cost eective to purchase the property, and a 10-year mortgage was taken on for $85,000. A strategic plan, developed in 2012, is to pay o the mortgage as soon as possible, upgrade their present facilities, and plan for further expansion. In addition to producing seven plays, four Showcase Productions, and a series of Readers Theater Outreach Programs each year, the Lemon Bay Playhouse, now in its 27th year, oers adult acting classes, children's summer acting camp, and college scholarships. Prior to every performance, a 50/50 rae is featured, and proceeds go directly toward raising thousands of dollars for the scholarship fund. "We have an excellent board of directors," explained Board President/Treasurer, Bob LaSalle. "Thanks to careful nancial management, a supportive community, and over 100 volunteers, we managed to pay o the Playhouse mortgage in six years, make improvements to the theater, and provide quality entertainment while keeping ticket prices low." Vice President, Charlie Tyler, echoed that statement, "I've been a member of four other boards in my lifetime, and never have I seen such a response at the box oce. We oer quality live theater to the general public, and we're still able to plan expansions and growth at the same time." "The Gin Game" will be staged at Lemon Bay Playhouse, 96 W. Dearborn St., Englewood, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, and Saturday, Jan. 18. A matinee is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19. Tickets cost $18 and are available at the box oce.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 15 21, 2014 LIVE MUSICWhen four bright, talented, and very young musicians came together to form a band a few months ago they rst had to decide on a name. "We were all into music," said guitarist Nicholas "Nick" Russell, "so the name 'Intuit' seemed to t just right." In 2012, he and bassist Nick Spagnuolo "Spags" had already formed a light jazz duo. At the same time, they were performing in the 15-member State College of Florida, Manatee, Big Band where they met fellow student and classically trained violinist, Camille "Millie" Hudson. When a shoulder injury forced Camille to cut back on her violin playing temporarily, the two Nicks convinced her to join Intuit as a vocalist. "I'm currently taking singing lessons from Melody Dickerson at State College of Florida and gaining condence as a jazz vocalist," she explained. The fourth member of Intuit is 17-year-old Hunter James Brown. "I wanted to play the drums when I was 9 years old, but my mother persuaded me to learn to play the piano rst. Learning to read music really helped," said Hunter, the quartet's drummer, vocalist and keyboard player. Intuit prides itself on being a Modern Jazz Collective. The term collective, according to Nick Spagnuolo, means that no one performer stands out. "We all play more than one instrument so we're quite interchange able. I learned to play drums when I was 7 or 8 but switched to playing bass in high school." "Although our ar rangements are rooted in jazz," added Nick Russell,"we incorporate diverse inuences that include Latin, funk, R&B, world, folk, and experimental styles. Whenever possible, we encourage horn players and other musicians to join us on stage. We perform three sets that include 10-11 songs each during a show." Intuit's signature piece is a modern arrangement of "All of Me" that can be heard on Facebook.com/ intuitJazzBand. Additional arrangements and videos of "Tea in the Sahara" and "All Blues" may be found at www.reverbnation.com/intuitjazzband. "We have had lots of help from my Dad," said Camille Hudson, whose father, Manatee School for the Arts teacher, Roger Hudson, records Intuit's songs and places them on Facebook and YouTube. Although based out of the Sarasota/ Bradenton area, Intuit performs in Englewood on a regular basis. Mango Bistro owners Marie Laforge and Ricardo Ruggiero discov ered the group when a friend recommended that they hear them play at the Clasico Restaurant in Sarasota. "We often hire bands from out of the area to keep our originality. Our customers have learned that we oer concert quality entertainment year-round on weekends, and Intuit is one of our newest additions," she said. Intuit performs monthly at Mango Bistro, 301 W. Dearborn St. in Englewood, and they'll be there on Jan. 18. On Feb. 14, they'll be at the Blue Marlin in Bradenton Beach. Intuit may be booked for any event by contacting them at 941-565-4625.By CHRIS KOURAPISSUN CORRESPONDENT songs and places them on Facebook and YouTube. out of the Sarasota/ Bradenton area, Intuit performs in Englewood on a regular basis.

E/N/C/V January 15 21, 2014 EVENTS THIS WEEKIf you are planning to remodel or upgrade your home, youll be happy to learn that experts will be on hand this weekend to oer help and advice at the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda Home & Garden Show. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday, Jan. 18, and Sunday, Jan. 19, vendors will be displaying their latest products, furnishing, and accessories, and contractors will give tips on remodeling roofs, patios, pools, decks and docks.

Celebrity Chef Emily Ellyn will be performing two separate demonstrations on Sunday when shell be remodeling recipes (what she calls Retro Rad) on stage at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. How does one remodel a recipe you might ask? Well, Chef Ellyn believes that leftovers can be made over as a tasty meal, and shes eager to show you how. First, she intends to demonstrate the art of pressure cooking short ribs. All new cookers have safety valves to insure safety, she maintains, and leftover short ribs can easily be transformed into three additional dishes: shepherds pie, pulled pork sandwiches, and chili. After demonstrating how to prepare each dish, Chef Ellyn will pass around samples and hold a ques tion and answer session. She encourages audience participation. Chef Ellyn, who is completing her Ph.D. at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management in Orlando, has traveled widely and enjoys taking old dishes and making them new using pressure cookers, crockpots, or woks. I like to teach people how to take delicious leftovers and build them into their weekly menu planning, she said. Chef Ellyn is an entertainer at heart, funny and fun to watch, and fans will look forward to reading her upcoming book: Leave it to Cleaver. Over 70 vendors are expected to show o their wares at the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda Home & Garden Show where customers are given the opportunity to walk around the 44,000 square foot event space and become introduced to area businesses and products.

20 Lets Go! E/N/C/V January 15 21, 2014 ROAD TRIP PHOTOS PROVIDED BY HAYWORTH PUBLIC RELATIONSSchooner Lynx under sail. Historic clipper sails into TampaBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR Captain and crew of the schooner Lynx.Today through Jan. 22, you can tour the War of 1812 Privateer Square Topsail Schooner Lynx at the Tampa Bay Convention Center dock along RiverWalk. The ship will arrive at noon, docking at 333 S. Franklin St., Tampa. Dockside tours of ship begin at 1 p.m. today and continue at 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily while the ship remains in Tampa. The cost is $10 per person for adults and free for children under 12. There also may be opportunities for day sailing in the early afternoon and/or sunset cruises while the ship is moored in Tampa. The cost for a three-hour sail is $55 for adults and $30 for children under 12. On Jan. 23, a limited number of passengers may sail to St. Petersburg, arriving at 4 p.m. The cost is $85 for adults and $45 for children under 12. Passengers will help hoist the sails, steer the ship, re the main battery of 6-pound cannonades aboard this traditional square topsail schooner. Crew members will discuss the history of the War of 1812 and of the typical privateer. The ship will pull away from the dock at 10 a.m. Reservations are a must as there is limited space for passengers. Lynx is an authentic wooden sailing ship a two-masted sloop. Launched on July 28, 2001, in Rockport, Maine, Lynx was the dream of Woodson K. Woodson a collector of ship models and other items relating to the period when the U.S. freed itself from Great Britain. Todays Lynx was inspired by the Privateer Lynx, which was involved in the War of 1812. That legacy as well as the legacy of the ag of the United States is being celebrated by the Tampa and St. Petersburg visits. The original Lynx was built at Fells Point, Md., in 1812. Privately owned, the warship for hire evaded British eets and helped to blockade American ports until captured early in the war. Many other ships were inspired by its design. Todays Lynx is tted out as the original would have been, right down to the ags and pennants. The ship has some 5,000 square feet of sail. It draws 8.5 feet and measures 72 feet at its waterline with a beam of 23 feet. Designer Melbourn Smith set out to make what he called an intelligent representation of the 1812 ship but adapted to current U.S. Coast Guard regulations to make it suitable for youth training and for illustrating history. Crew members are mostly volunteers, carefully chosen from experienced sailors who long to gain experience on such a historic ship. Tour goers may stay aboard as long as they wish, chatting with various members of the crew. Passengers are responsible to supply their own meals, snacks and beverages for sailing trips. As the ship moves from port to port through out the year, opportunities exist fro oneto six-day adventures aboard the Lynx. During such longer cruises, passengers have the opportunity to learn more about oshore sailing.

January 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 21 EVENTS THIS WEEKEstablished artists, local crafters and about 4,000 rubber duckies will come together once again for the Venice-Nokomis Rotary Clubs 22nd Annual Fine Art and Craft Festival on Saturday, Jan. 18, and Sunday, Jan. 19, at the Venice Municipal Airport festival grounds. The rotary club has been hard at work organizing a juried show of roughly 80 artists and crafters, entertainers, and childrens activities. Rotarian Joe Pokorney and his wife Judith McGinty are co-chairing the event this year. Although the pair has assisted with the festival over the past 10 years, this is their second year chairing the show. We wear cowboy hats so people know where we are in case they have a question, McGinty said. The show has everything from paintings, pottery, ceramics, jewelry and photography, Pokorney said. The crafts are pretty wide-ranging these days, he said, including designer bird cages and tiki signs. As for those 4,000 rubber duckies, they are part of a popular fundraising event known as the Duck Pluck. With a little help from the re department, an above ground swimming pool is lled with water and numbered yellow ducks bob around waiting to be picked out of the water every half hour to announce a prize winner with the corresponding number on his or her entry form. Buy one duck for $6, two for $10, 27 for $100, or as many as 160 ducks for $500. There are other deals too. The more ducks you purchase, the more chances to win and the more prizes you can win. The grand prize is a ve-day cruise for two. Other prizes include theater tickets, 18 holes of golf for four, restaurant gift certicates, YMCA family member ships, family portrait packages, family bowling packages, oil change and lubes for cars, home A/C tune-up, sporting goods items and more. This year is the Duck Plucks 10th anniversary, and all proceeds directly support Rotary Futures College Resource Center in Venice High School. The center serves Sarasota County students with identifying and securing scholarships, selecting colleges, and qualifying for Floridas Bright Futures scholarship program. This valuable resource has brought more than $21 million in scholarships to the county since its inception in 2001. There will also be a childrens tent displaying stu dent artwork from area schools which will be judged at the festival. Craft projects and activities will also be on hand for the kids to enjoy, such as a bounce house, rock climbing, water walking and bungee jumping.Concert kicks off festivalThis year, the rotary club plans to kick o the event with a new Friday night concert called Rock with Rotary at 6 p.m., Friday, Jan. 17, at the festival grounds. The Gas House Gorillas, a modern rock band out of Venice, will perform from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $10 online at www.venicenokomisrotary.org or at the following Venice businesses: Contemporary Hearing, 242 South Tamiami Trail; Eyes On You, 141 W.

Concert proceeds will go directly to the Rotary Futures College Resource Center at Venice High School. Participants at both the Friday night concert or weekend festival can also snack on hot dogs, hamburg ers, Italian sausage and food sold by the rotary members. Beer and wine will also be available to purchase. In addition to the Friday night concert, there will be a variety of entertainers performing over the weekend during the festival. Saturdays schedule includes the Rock-A-Dials, the Shames, and Ken McBride. Sunday will have performances from the Curry Creek Cloggers, GSL Trio John LeRoux, and again from Ken McBride.

January 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 23 EVENTS THIS WEEKThe area's largest presentation of boats and marine products is coming to the Charlotte County Fairgrounds this weekend. Many major boat dealers will be on hand at the 13th Annual Charlotte County Boat Show beginning at 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16, through Saturday, Jan. 18, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19. Produced by the Southwest Florida Marine Industries Association, the show will include more than 250 boats on display and a variety of marine accessories and services. Admission is free, and parking is $5. Inside the Fairgrounds Expo Hall in Port Charlotte there will be boat lifts, clothing and yacht brokers, as well as information about marinas, boatyards, service suppliers and more. John Good, who works with the Southwest Florida Marine Industries Association, said that this year's show promises to be one of the best in recent memory. "Business is getting better, so there are going to be more boats and products than in previous years," he said. "The dealers are super busy right now, so there will be a lot of new boats on display." While not an in-water show, visitors will nd hundreds of boats from nearly every local dealer: center console shing boats, ats boats, skis, deck boats, pontoon boats, family cruising boats, catamarans, and more. This show is always a great opportunity to learn more about area boating and safety. The U.S Coast Guard Auxiliary, Power Squadron, and local yacht clubs can answer just about any questions you may have about where to go and how to enjoy the beautiful boating waters of Charlotte Harbor. Charlotte's own Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle and their friendly, experienced crew will hold Fishing Seminars throughout the four days of the show. They will talk about both inshore and oshore shing, and will be happy to answer all shing and equipment-related questions. Good says that new at the show this year will be Franks Fishing Simulator, where you can experience the excitement of catching everything from a bass to a marlin. This will be a free attraction in the seminar area. The producer of The Charlotte County Boat Show, the Southwest Florida Marine Industries Association, has a membership which includes nearly every boat dealer and marine-related company in Southwest Florida, and has protected the rights of boaters and promoted boating and the marine industry in Southwest Florida for more than 40 years. The association also owns the Fort Myers Spring Boat Show, held at the Lee Civic Center in March and the Fort Myers Boat Show, held in downtown Fort Myers in November. The Charlotte County Fairgrounds are at 2333 El Jobean Road (Route 776), Port Charlotte.
