Home development planned for Intracoastal


Tra Ponti gets new life


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
For the first time in several
years, prospective homebuyers
may soon have the opportunity
to purchase a town home on
the island of Venice with unob-
structed views overlooking the
Venetian Waterway Park, the
Intracoastal Waterway and the
Venice Train Depot and park.
Those homes are proposed
in the new downtown Tra Ponti
Villaggio, a new residential
project. Additionally, 19 single


family homes would be built
on the vacant land west of
American Legion Way, the road
between East Venice Avenue
and East Tampa Avenue.
This project replaces the
original plans for this coveted
downtown location, which in
the mid-2000s, prior to the
recent recession, was to be
Tra Ponti at the Waterfront.
Originally, it was going to be
an Italian masterpiece of 7,
6 and 4 floors. It included a
waterfront grandiose hotel,
retail stores on the first floor,

Springs to open

After day spa's 9-month shuttering,

swimmers can finally return


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

After being closed to the
public for more than nine
months, Warm Mineral
Springs Day Spa will officially
reopen for swimming at 9 a.m.
Saturday.
"It's about time it's been
a long time coming," North
Port Mayor Jim Blucher said
Monday.
Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson said the excitement
surrounding the Springs'
reopening is evident from
the number of inquiries she's
gotten about it in recent weeks.
"I expect there will be many
local residents (at the opening)
and we'll start building back
our tourism industry around
that in North Port again," she
said. 'And I would also expect,

Michael Rice enters the courtroom Tuesday at the Sarasota County Justice

shooting death of Philippe Nahon at Bentley's Hotel in Osprey.


Killer heard voices,

By DREW WINCHESTER

"Kill him, he is a bad man. Kill
him, he is a bad man."
Those are the words that were
running through Michael Rice's
head just moments before he
pulled out a Glock 27 pistol and
shot Philippe Nahon in the head
on May 26, 2012, at a boutique
hotel in Osprey, according to


Assistant Public Defender Jerome
Meisner.
Rice, a 23-year-old volunteer
firefighter and dump truck driver
from South Carolina, was on
vacation with family and, after
struggling for most of his life
with mental issues, suddenly
snapped and shot Nahon, 48,

had met in the tiki bar at
Bentley's Hotel.
Meisner told the jury
of 12 members and two
alternates Tuesday morn-
ing at the Sarasota County
Justice Center that Rice
suffered from schizophre-
nia and bipolar disorders,
and in those moments
prior to Nahon's death, he
experienced an auditory
hallucination so intense, he
simply could not ignore it.
So, after a decade or
more of suffering from
"profound mental illness,"


WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9,2014


Rice had momentarily
gone insane, Meisner said.
"He did not know what
he was doing was wrong,"
Meisner told the jury.
The insanity defense
will depend entirely on the
jury believing that Rice -
charged with first-degree
murder and four counts of
aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon for threat-
ening witnesses had
suddenly, and quite vio-
lently, suffered a significant
breakdown.
Assistant State Attorney
Karen Fraivillig argued do-
ing her opening statement
that Rice was fully aware
of what he was doing, and
that his actions leading


up to and then following
Nahon's death showed that
he was of sound mind.
Not only had Rice suc-
cessfully checked his family
into the hotel, but he had
also started a bar tab,
carried on conversations
with the bartender and had
the sense to threaten other
patrons with his pistol,
demanding they not call
911, after shooting Nahon,
Fraivillig said.
Nahon, who was visiting
the hotel and tiki bar with
friends because they liked
to hang out there, was
going up to order his sec-
ond beer of the day when
the two men exchanged a
couple of sentences, and


Rice shot him point-blank
in the head.
"He understood the con-
sequences of his behavior,"
Fraivillig said of Rice. The
state is not seeking the
death penalty.
Rice had only been at the
hotel for roughly five and
a half hours prior to killing
Nahon. He had driven 12
hours with this family from
South Carolina and accord-
ing to Bentley's general
manager GregWagner, who
checked him in, Rice was
polite and calm.
Charles Logan, a
Bentley's bartender on
duty the day of the murder,
said that Rice was running
a bar tab and ordering


margaritas. Rice did not
appear intoxicated and
was carrying on normal
conversations with him,
although Logan believed
that Rice was hitting on
him, based on comments
Rice made.
Logan also testified that
after Rice shot Nahon in
the head, Rice stood over
his body and asked if he
was "going to tell any more
gay jokes." And when an-
other bar patron attempted
to flee, Rice forced him
to sit back down at
gunpoint then gave the
patron a high-five when he
complied.
After the shooting and
the pool area had been


cleared by those fleeing the
scene, Rice took a drink
from behind the bar while
Logan called 911, then set
the gun on a table where a
bowl of chicken wings and
fries were sitting on a tray,
and walked away.
He was found by
authorities a short time
later in front of the hotel,
and according to former
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Deputy Jack Blessee, Rice
immediately said the
shooting was intentional,
and he wanted to explain
everything to a prosecutor.
The state is expected to
continue its case today.

Florida's women were caught up in Civil War


ByLARRYEVANS
GONDOLIER SUN
CORRESPONDENT
Florida does not get
much attention from
historians who write about
the Civil War.
Historian Tracy J. Revels
recently told aVenice
audience that "Florida is
the Rodney Dangerfield of
the CivilWar. The state gets
no respect."
A native of North
Florida, Revels speaks
with a Southern accent
not often heard in the
Sunshine State. She has
three degrees from Florida
State University and chairs
the history department
atWofford College in
Spartanburg, S.C.
Revels once talked with a
woman who was surprised
to learn Florida sided with
the Confederate States of
America when the nation
split in 1861.
The woman said, "'I
thought Florida was a
Yankee state.'"
Revels: "Now, yes. But
not back then."
That drew laughter from
the Venice audience of
about 200 people, many
of whom are natives of
Northern states.
The March 25 program
was the second of five
lectures in the second
year of aVenice Historical
Society series that marks
the 150th anniversary of
the CivilWar. The pro-
grams are supported with


a grant from the Florida
Humanities Council.
Revels focused on
Florida's women. The title
of her talk was the same as
a book she wrote: "Grander
in Her Daughters: Florida's
Women During the Civil
War." Published in 2004,
the book was named that
year's best book on Florida
history by the Florida
Historical Society.
The state's women get
even less attention than
Florida's CivilWar soldiers
and politics.
Revels said that is partly
because so few letters
from CivilWar-era women
survive. Soldiers who re-
ceived them tended to lose
or discard letters as they
moved from battlefield to
battlefield.
Historians use Census
records, memoirs and
records kept by the
United Daughters of the
Confederacy in researching
the experience of women,
Revels said.
White women of the
plantation class comprised
"only a tiny fraction" of
Florida's women, "but
we know the most about
them" because they kept
diaries and wrote memoirs.
Florida's population in
1860 was 140,000. The "vast
majority" of women were
of the "Cracker" class -
ordinary people who lived
on farms. There are "very
few documents from this
group."


Revels told an anecdote
about a Cracker woman
who saw a soldier about to
steal her hog. She grabbed
a pistol and said if he tried
it she would "blow his
brains out." The soldier left.
Most Florida soldiers
who went North to fight
were ordinary people, too.
Fifteen thousand Florida
men went to war, Revels
said. Five thousand were
killed, 5,000 were wounded
and "5,000 came home OK.
But we know better, don't
we? We know that many
soldiers who come home
OK do not come home
OK."
Research indicates
Florida women grew weary
of the war early on. A
refrain that runs through
many of the letters can be
summed up in two words:
"'Come home.'"
There was pro-Union


sentiment in Florida.
Historians now figure
perhaps one-third of
people in the state felt that
way. The percentage could
be higher, Revels said, and
almost certainly was by the
end of the war.
Meanwhile, pro-Confed-
erate women comprised
a "thimble brigade" that
made uniforms and socks
and battle flags that went
north to war.
The Civil War was
"liberating" for many white
women who suddenly had
to operate plantations and
farms, figure out how to
earn money and live on
their own.
Slaves were held on
about one-third of Florida's
plantations and farms,
Revels said. There were
also some free black resi-
dents of Florida. They were
"hopeful for freedom."

Females and free black
women "looked forward
to the end of the war.
They knew the war would
change their lives."
Florida's female slaves
did "everything they could"
during the war to disrupt
the lives of the white elite
that held power; they
"fought psychological
battles on the homefront,"
Revels said.
Decades of slave sales
and escapes to freedom
had torn families apart.
"Black newspapers
across the South for 60
years after the war carried
ads that would say, 'Do you

Call today for a

Did you know...
that over 100 million Americans suffer from knee and joint pain? In fact,
this pain accounts for one third of all visits to primary care physicians
and half of all anti-inflammatory drug prescriptions.
A revolutionary new non-surgical treatment called
Viscosupplementation (VS) Therapy is providing hope and relief for
many knee pain suffers. Offered locally by Sarasota Spine & Joint,
this procedure is minimally invasive, requires no surgery, can provide
IMMEDIATE relief, and has little to no recovery time.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms in your knee or
joints, chances are your pain is due to a condition called osteoarthritis,
and you may be a candidate for care:

* PAIN/STIFFNESS

* MUSCLE WEAKNESS

* SWELLING

* DEFORMED JOINTS

* REDUCED RANGE OF MOTION

* CRACKING AND CREAKING
We invite you to regain control of your life by taking advantage of our
No Cost To You Knee Pain Consultation where we can explore if this
scientific discovery and medical breakthrough may be right for you.
Simply call (941) 444-1086 or visit our web site, www.SRQSpine. corn
to learn more Today!

How does this treatment work?
It's a very easy and quick process: Our medical practitioners will inject
Hyalgan directly into your knee joint using a high tech medical device
called diagnostic ultrasound to pinpoint the exact location intended
with extreme accuracy, which provides the best possible outcome from
each injection. That's why if you have tried any type of pain reduction
injection elsewhere without success we may still be able to assist you as
your original injection may have never wound up in just the right place.
Most patients compare the treatment to getting a flu shot and report little
pain or discomfort.

When will I feel results?
Though results may vary, most patients feel an immediate reduction in
pain and return to normal activities in weeks.

Will my insurance cover this treatment?
Yes, most major insurances and Medicare will pay for this
treatment.


Our Knee Pain Program is designed for knee pain sufferers searching
for an effective alternative to full knee joint replacement surgery. It
is important to remember that the program is FDA approved, and
covered by most major insurance programs.
At Sarasota Spine & Joint we employ treatment protocols for
osteoarthritis of the knee that are adhered to by both a nationally
renowned integrated medical practice and medical research group.
Call us today at (941) 444-1086 and ask for your No Cost To You
Knee Pain Consultation. During this consultation you can get all of
your questions answered in a warm and friendly environment. Once
complete, you will know exactly what your treatment options are and
Hyalgan therapy and our specialized rehab program is right for you.

"My knee feels great. I was a bit skeptical when Ifirst read about the program in the paper but
from the moment I walked through the door I knew that this program was going to be different.
The entire atmosphere from the attitude of the staff to the office itself put me at ease. I had
already had total knee replacement and wanted to try some thing rather than go through
another painful surgery. After completing the program my initial impression was correct. I can
now dance again which I have not done in years, and my lifestyle is on its way back to normal!"

RAISING OSTEOPOROSIS-RELATED
FRACTURE AWARENESS
A recent worldwide survey reveals that more than half of the
women who suffer from osteoporosis do not perceive themselves
as being at increased risk for experiencing a fracture. This posture
of denial assumed by the majority of women with the bone-
thinning disease is contrary to estimates that suggest that one in
two women over age fifty will ultimately experience an
oste op orosis -related bone fracture in their lifetime. Curiously,
while awareness of osteoporosis has increased in recent years,
most women with the disease are slow to recognize that they
might be in danger of fracturing a hip or vertebra, which is a
serious matter. An assessment by the chiropractor can help
patients evaluate their own bone health and fracture risk.
P.S. Once a person suffers an oste op orosis -related fracture, he or
she is at increased risk for additional fractures.

ideas on the matter
and helped craft the
solution.
"It left us vulnerable,"
Holic said. "We're there
to help them, but if we
wanted to talk to the
advisory board members
during the week, you
couldn't until there was
another meeting."
And there were other
concerns -- like attor-
neys waiting for the city
to screw up.
"When you look at
what's happened with
(Andrea) Mogensen
attacking us on these,"
said Council Member
Bob Daniels, "it's a smart
move legally so we don't
cost the city taxpayers
money."
Mogensen is the
Sarasota Sunshine

personnel, housekeeping
and lifeguards on staff,
but no concessions
like food or water will
be sold, per the bid
agreement.
Bobo was confident
about opening day.
"This is what we do,"
he said. "I think the
staff that we picked out
will do a good job and
provide good customer
service for visitors and
residents of the area."
He said he hired all of

contract to purchase the
re-zoned lots from the
current property owners.
He will build one- and
two-story homes on the
non-waterfiront home sites
and three-story town homes
on the waterfront site.
Homes will range from
2,000 to 3,500 square
feet of living area with
two-car garages and
custom designed outdoor
living areas. It is antici-
pated upon City Council


attorney who successful-
ly sued the city on behalf
of Citizens for Sunshine
over open meetings law
violations involving
email exchanges. A
settlement reached in
2009 resulted in the city
paying out more than
$1 million in attorney's
fees.
In July of 2013, the city
disbanded its formal
Agenda Committee over
the same concern -- that
Mogensen would even-
tually challenge the city
for not advertising the
meetings.
Last year, Mogensen
made inquiries into
emails sent by Council
Member Jim Bennett, as
a member of the region-

ployees of on-site eatery

the temptation to work
from home, the city
issued an iWad to each
council member.
For at least 25 years,
city advisory boards
in Venice have had a
non-voting council
member serve alongside
them. The idea was to
give council a firsthand
account of the board's
actions, so when recom-
mendations came forth,
council had insight into
the conversation.
Conversely, the ex-offi-
cio member also served
as a gut check for the
advisory boards, so they
didn't go astray from the
direction council was
headed. Everyone bene-
fited from the exchange.

The same action will
be taken for the remain-
ing nine advisory boards
under separate reso-
lutions or ordinances,
depending on how they
were first designated.

Ex-officio members on
city of Venice advisory
boards are being elimi-
nated to make it easier
for city council members
to converse with them.
Currently an ex-officio
member -- a council
member assigned to
each advisory board --
cannot speak about city
matters with members
of that same advisory
board except during a
scheduled public meet-
ing, in accordance with
the Florida Sunshine
Law.

tion as a board member

sations (with) members
of that board," said City

which means "village

residents and guests to
enjoy walking downtown
enjoying local cafes,
restaurants and shops.
Additionally, residents
will have the oppor-

Bio-swale project near beach scaled back


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Residents along the
Gulf of Mexico in Venice
have won a partial victory
in their fight against a
planned open bio-swale
project south of Venice
Beach.
The city on Tuesday,
April 8 signed off on
what the city is calling a
compromise settlement
agreement that would
pipe runoff underneath
the upper beach for a
portion of the project,
and then into a smaller
open swale than was
originally planned.
The swale, which
neighbors called an open


sewer, is designed to
allow runoff to percolate
into the ground, instead
of running directly into
the Gulf.
Occasional beach
closures in the past were
attributable in part to the
runoff, which contained
animal feces.
Two weeks ago, Venice
Beach failed another
county water quality test.
Two failures in a row
result in a mandatory
beach closure.
In September 2013,
David Dunn-Rankin, who
lives near the project,
challenged an environ-
mental resource permit
issued to the city by the
Southwest Florida Water


Management District for
the project. Dunn-Rankin
is a principal in Sun Coast
Media Group, which owns
the Gondolier Sun.
Dozens of residents in
the neighborhood also
objected, calling the
bio-swale unsafe and
unsightly.
Neighbors sought
an underground vault
system, but the city's
consultant said the
Environmental Protection
Agency would never sign
off on a project like that
near a beach.
City engineers say the
modified project will
be even better than the
original.
"There was more


potential for erosion and
the collection of debris in
that first (proposed swale)
section along Ocala Street
because it was so nar-
row," said City Engineer
James Clinch.
"This is a better design
that will greatly reduce
the length of the open
swale by pipping the
portion from Granada
Avenue to Ocala Street,
and decreasing the foot-
print of the swale from
Ocala Street to Alhambra
Road."
The hybrid design will
allow for all small rain
events to be contained
underground, without
losing the benefit of the
open portion of the swale,


(and the) ultraviolet
disinfection by the sun,"
for larger rain events,
Clinch said.
Under the modified
plan, the runoff will pass
through an underground
exfiltration trench north
of Ocala Street using
perforated 24-inch wide
PVC tubing, surrounded
by river rock and filter
cloth.
The city intends to
construct the open swale
south of Ocala Street not
to exceed 2 feet in depth
(reduced from 3 feet in
the original plan), and
not to exceed 35 feet in
width at any portion.
The $15,600 estimat-
ed cost to make the


modifications will come
from the city's Stormwater
Enterprise Fund.
The agreement is
contingent on SWFWMD
and FDEP approval.
In return, Dunn-Rankin
and the city will file a
joint motion to relinquish
jurisdiction in the case,
requesting an administra-
tive law judge to remand
the matter back to
SWFWMD to implement
the settlement.
City council on Tuesday
approved the settlement
with no discussion. A
public meeting will be
held April 30 to better
inform neighbors about
the project.

Carlesimo pushes downtown redevelopment district


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

City Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo, with
council's blessing, is
exploring alternative
funding to revitalize the
downtown area.
Carlesimo said he
became interested in
the idea of revitalizing
the downtown area
through a Community
Redevelopment Area
designation, where
increases in taxes within
a defined geographical
area are held aside and
used later to fund rede-
velopment projects.
"CRAs have been
around for some time
and have been proposed
in the past for Venice,"
Carlesimo said. "The
heart of Venice, and in
many people's view, the
lifeblood of the city, is
'Main Street.' That's been


on my mind.
'As a member of
council and a (retired)
firefighter, I wondered
what would happen if
we had a catastrophic
event downtown, such
as a fire?"
Carlesimo met with a
number of city depart-
ment directors and plan-
ners to identify some
significant infrastructure
concerns.
In addition to water
pressure and fire hy-
drant availability, they
discussed how to ad-
dress downtown parking,
according to Carlesimo.
"The question of the
U.S. Post Office was
discussed. What would
be the best multi-use of
that property? Perhaps
a parking garage along
with other uses?" he
asked. "Where is the
Marker 4 property
headed? What could we


do with a CRA to address
these and the many
other issues that impact
the heart of the city?"
On Tuesday, amid a
determination to grant
the Rose Hill apartment
building local Historic
Registry status, Mayor
John Holic said he
thought it might be a
good idea to look at
a CRA for the city's
Historic Apartment
District.
A property owner
requested the city
historic registry designa-
tion for one of the first
apartment buildings
constructed in Venice
in 1926 to be eligible
for registry status with
Sarasota County, "which
would allow them some
tax relief for this particu-
lar building," said James
Hagler, with the Venice
Archives and Museum.
Hagler helped


convince the property
owner not to demolish
the building on Armada
Road.
"This is the perfect
case why the apartment
district has to be includ-
ed in a CRA," Holic said.
"We have no money to
help this person."
"This is the perfect
time to consider a CRA
for the city," Carlesimo
said. "Business is im-
proving. We are address-
ing our infrastructure
by upgrading our water
mains. We are hiring an
economic development
(consultant). A CRA for
the business district
would demonstrate to
residents, the business
community and future
investors (this is) council
commitment to preserv-
ing the fundamental
character of our city."
"Other benefits would
include increased


property values, and
likely increased invest-
ment by property owners
would follow," Carlesimo
added.
Council urged
Carlesimo to pursue
the concept on his own,
but not the authority to
speak on their behalf,
lest those meetings with
individuals fall under
Sunshine Law scrutiny.
"I'm just glad to see
someone else is interest-
ed in pursuing it," Holic
said.
The city of Sarasota
and Sarasota County
officials met last week
to consider a recom-
mendation to extend a
CRA to redevelop the
Newtown area. It's one
of two CRAs in Sarasota
governed under the
county's authority.
Manatee County has five
designated CRAs.
This week, Venice


MainStreet, an orga-
nization representing
business interests, voted
unanimously to support
Carlesimo's research
effort.
The city Economic
Development Advisory
Board meets Monday
(April 14) to do the
same.
"If they agree, the
next step is making a
presentation to (council)
to share what we've
learned," Carlesimo.
Holic said he's re-
searching whether it
would be better to get
authorization for a CRA
for each project, or a
more encompassing ap-
proach to seek approval
for a CRA covering a
numerous host of areas,
like the gateways to the
city, Seaboard, down-
town and apartment
district.

Snake, hamster, dog, cat? This clinic heals all


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Your pet rat is sick, the
snake is coughing, the
hamster is refusing to eat,
the canary has stopped
singing and the cat is
sneezing.
To which clinic could
you take them?
The new Laurel Road
Veterinary Clinic at 2474
Laurel Road East, facing
Pinebrook Road in the
Plaza Venezia, treats
critters, cats and dogs.
For the past 30 years,
the clinic owner and
veterinarian, Dr. Donald
Swerida, has treated and
assisted distressed dogs,
cats, birds and critters.
Back in 1995, he launched
his house call service, Dr.
Don's Mobile Vet, and a
month ago he opened his
new veterinary clinic and
continues to support his
Mobile Vet service.
The clinic, which works
with the nonprofit Venice
Wildlife Center, had two
injured patients brought
in this weekend. Swerida's
colleague, veterinarian
Michael Herrington,
reported on the condition
of an older pelican found
near Gasparilla.
"It has compound

manager Karen Makk and veterinarian technician Jessica Lovett.


fracture of the right wing,
possibly caused when
it became caught up in
fishing lines," Herrington
said. "Today, under
anesthesia, we will do an
open reduction internal
fixation, putting extreme-
ly lightweight, small
metal rods in the bone
and use dental acrylic
to make a small tube to
support the bone while it
heals."
"This surgery likely will
take from 30 minutes to
an hour," he said. "Then
the pelican returns to the
wildlife center for rehabil-
itation with the ultimate


goal of releasing him into
the wild."
The nonprofit center
pays, but the doctors and
their team donate their
time and only charge for
materials at cost. Another
patient in line for surgery
was a laughing seagull
with a broken leg found
in Venice Isle also
brought in by the center.
Laurel Road Veterinary
Clinic principally assists
with dogs and cats, but
the everyday workload
can include all sorts of
critters: small birds like
parrots, reptiles, rabbits,
guinea pigs and hamsters.


The clinic is full service,
doing surgeries and
dentistry.
"Pet owners should
be aware, for example,
when a bobcat catches
and bites a pet, then gets
away, the pet may get
an infection and die,"
Swerida said. "Essentially,
taking care is a priority in
Florida."
They support another
nonprofit, Venice Cat
Coalition, whose goal is
to reduce the number
of feral cats by spaying
and neutering. Suppliers
provide vaccine and
supplies, and the vets


administer the shots.
Swerida, and
Herrington are avian
veterinarians practicing
those skills, said Karen
Makk, practice manager.
X-rays and therapeutic
laser promoting incision
tissue healing are per-
formed in the surgery.
Herrington grew up in
Sarasota, leaving Florida
with a college degree
to attend veterinary
school for four years in
Columbus, Ohio, and he
has been back for three
years as a practicing
veterinarian.
"Covering almost all


Sarasota County, the
house calls service has
proved invaluable assist-
ing pets of senior citizens
who no longer have
transport," Makk said,
"particularly for senior
dogs with arthritis and
cats or dogs that do not
travel well. In all cases,
it is less stressful on the
animal to be doing it in a
home environment."
The house call service
is subject to emergency
requirements. The
clinic is open weekdays
8 a.m. to 5p.m. and
Saturday mornings. Call
941-480-9707.


Dr. Michael Herrington describes the injuries suffered by the

Venice vs. the mall: What effect will it have?


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Venice Gondolier Sun
Businews columnist Roger
Button wrote the following
business report in reference
to the impending opening
of the University Town
Center Mall.

Publicity has been
lamenting for several
months the new Mall at
University Town Center un-
der construction in North
Sarasota at University
Parkway and Interstate 75.
Could its impend-
ing opening planned
for October have any


detrimental effects on
business and shopping in
the Venice community?
I invited Kat Quast, di-
rector ofVenice Mainstreet,
which represents many
of the island retailers and
restaurants, to share her
thoughts comparing this
huge, 140-store mall to
shopping in the City of
Venice.
"I imagine, initially,
people will want to go to
the mall, but it will not have
what we have inVenice," she
responded. "You can go to a
Gap, but you cannot go to a
Venice Stationers, Nifty Nic-
Nacs and Sandy's Designer
Clothing in that mall."


Quast does not believe
it is going to have any long
term effect upon Venice.
Part of the reason people
come down here is the
ambiance, the ability to
get outside and to shop,
to walk and enjoy this as
a destination as well as a
shopping avenue, she said.
At this stage, Mainstreet
has no plans in reference to
the mall, but she will raise
the subject soon at a board
meeting.
"Most people do not
go to a place because
they love the mall, they
go to the mall because
it is convenient to visit,"
she said. "It is in Sarasota,


and Venetians do not
like to leave and they do
not have to go anywhere
else because they have
the coolest independent
shopping here."
With restaurants offering
both inside and sidewalk
dining and the friendly
vendors always willing to
help and advise customers
with their shopping re-
quirements, Venice appeals
to residents and visitors,
she said.
"You do not get that
personal hometown feel
when you go to shop from
Susie in the mall," Quast

Origin brings'bi-fold' windows to Venice


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Apparently, it was
coincidence that Origin,
a UK-based bi-folding or
easifold door manufactur-
ing company, choseVenice
for its U.S. base less than
five miles from the largest
national U.S. based manu-
facturer, PGT Windows.
Florida appealed to
Origin as the perfect place
for bi-fold doors because
Floridians tend to go in
and out of their house
often and the doors
are designed for that.
Further, the net worth of
Gulf residents lends itself
to high-end products, said
Ben Halvorsen, president
of Origin.
Origin USA is operating
from an 8,000square-foot
location at 771 Commerce
Drive, Suite 16. A three-
man team has set up
the company display


showroom. Next month,
they are installing equip-
ment and the following
month they intend to be
manufacturing.
The business started in
West London, U.K. in the
swimming pool and log
cabin business with owner
Neil Ginger investigating
bi-folding doors for linking
his cabins to the homes.
Typically sliding glass
doors were popular, but
with the external bi-folding
door, everything folds and
slides to a side. There was
very little competition so
the decision was made to
make the product.
Twelve years later, Origin
produces aluminum
bi-folding doors available
throughout the U.K., in
Dubai in the Middle East,
and in European and
African countries.
Evaluating the growth
market in the U.S. to that in
the U.K., the opportunities


are extremely appealing,
said Halvorsen. There are
U.S. competitors, but he
believes Origins service
and quality will be more
favorable.
Typically the existing U.S.
bi-fold door is designed
for the $3 million home,
whereas Origin's market
will be from $400,000.
Origin U.K. has revenues
of $30 million and employs
104. InVenice, the three
employees are Halvorsen;
Neil Ginger, owner and
CEO; and Jakub Zahradil,
plant manager.
Next month, they will
hire three people for
production and as demand
increases recruit more
salespeople. For the first
year, they are projecting
revenues of $400,000 with
up to 15 employees.
In the U.K, glass does not
have to be supplied with
the bi-folding doors, but it
is obligatory in Florida and


Origin obtains supplies
from Cardinal of Ocala.
Halvorsen plans as part of
the hiring schedule to set
up a door-fitting team, but
his prime business model
is to sell through dealers
who do the installation.
The major sales effort
will be the comparison with
competitors who take up 18
weeks to deliver whereas in
the U.K. and now in Venice,
the customized order will
be supplied next day.
Manufacturing equip-
ment is costing $250,000;
total investment in the
buildout, showroom and
production is $500,000. All
products are custom-made
using aluminum with high
velocity hurricane-ap-
proved glass available in
more than 150 colors.
Their design allows the
exterior doors to fold in or
out on easy-run tracks.
Numerous safety fea-
tures include anti-lift bars

and CEO, discuss the construction of the bi-folding easifold
doors to be manufactured in Venice.


top and bottom, an eight-
point locking system, high
security frames and hinges.
As a safety measure, the
space between the closing
doors is a flexible rubber
gasket to avoid fingers
being crushed.
This week, Kevin
McGurgan, the British


Consul General in Miami,
is attending Origin USA
Grand Opening Gala trade
event on Wednesday,
April 9 from 1 p.m.
to 7 p.m. at its Venice
headquarters.
"'Made in America' is a
powerful concept to us,"
Halvorsen said.


Local economy: more visitors, more spending, more jobs


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

It has been a fantastic
season for tourism in
Sarasota County, with
more than 72,000 visitors, a
7.8 percent increase com-
pared to last year. Those
visitors accounted for direct
expenditures of more than
$86 million, a 12.3 percent
increase over last year.
Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson shared this good
news when speaking to
Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Club members recently on
tourism, employment and
a major road improvement
on the island.
This is confirmation of


comments by retailers who
were quoted in past Venice
Gondolier Sun editions
saying it is so crowded on
WestVenice Avenue during
February and March, they
had both returned to their
stores and chosen to walk
earlier or later the next day.
In February, it was the
highest-ever occupancy
at 91.5 percent of open
homes. The lodging average
daily rate in February was
$194.52, a 7.1 percent
increase over last year. More
rooms were available and
they were full.
"My roots are in NewYork
State and my family said
many local folks were just
jumping into their cars and
leaving to take a vacation


here," Robinson said.
This economy is good
because of tourism, but
it was pretty low when
she took office in 2010.
Unemployment was
12.2 percent and now it
is right around 6 percent,
quite amazing for just four
years, she said.
An economic jobs
funding pool was set up to
attract jobs here and com-
panries have been awarded
$5.8 million to create 2,480
jobs, of which more than
1,800 are boots on the
ground in this county.
Turning to the traffic con-
gestion issue on the island,
Robinson had good news.
The advanced traffic man-
agement system is being


implemented with signals
on the island becoming
part of a communication
network
This $834,000 project is
complete, and final testing
is taking place with imple-
mentation on May 25.
"It is expected traffic will
flow better on Business 41
on the island, but it will take
time and we expect it to
be all working beneficially
by next season," she said.
"Responsibility for roads on
the island was intermixed
with the city and county.
It did not make sense for
a number of years. We are
going to start swapping
roads, and the county will
get the rest of Pinebrook
Road."


That is good news for
when Honore Avenue's
south extension to
Pinebrook Road is com-
pleted next year. It will
be possible to travel from
Center Road to Manatee
County without using
U.S. 41 or Interstate 75.
However widening and
straightening parts of
Pinebrook Road between
Edmondson and Center
Roads will become essential
to manage the expected
increased traffic.
More good news for driv-
ers: a $2.2 million project
to resurface county roads,
including Knights Trail,
Laurel and various other
roads in South County, will
begin with bids opening


April 30.
Jacaranda Boulevard's
$2.1 million resurfacing
project is in the design stage
with construction anticipat-
ed to start this fall.
Venice Bypass is an
FDOT-funded project to
widen it from Center Road
to Bird Bay Drive from
four to six lanes, adding
bike lanes, sidewalks,
traffic signal improve-
ments, drainage, utilities,
lighting and landscaping.
A five-year work program,
construction is planned for
2018 and 2019, as design
work proceeds.
"It is going to be miser-
able, there is no good way
around the Bypass, and it is
coming," Robinson said.


MALL

FROM PAGE 12

said.
She admits she is a little
excited that the mall may
have an Apple store, a little
bit closer than Orlando,
but she would only visit
the store when she has a
problem with her comput-
er or smartphone. Quast
does not like malls, espe-
cially a new mall because
when she walks around,
there are often chemical
smells and she can only
stay for 30 minutes.


The season in Venice
now begins earlier in
mid-October and runs
later to the end of April,
and Venice Mainstreet has
a full calendar of events


and activities for the whole
family. In mid-October,
it starts with the Sertoma
Wine-Fest, followed by
the Sun Fiesta and the
Halloween Parade.


November is turning out
to be a hugely eventful,
said Quast. Nov. 7-10 is
Rev 3; the Blues Festival is
on Nov. 15 and probably
the Chalk Festival followed


the next weekend by an
Art Festival. Thanksgiving
seasonal activities continue
with the popular Christmas
Walk and then the parade.
"Venice is a destination


- being on the beach.
Everyone enjoys the great
weather, food, shopping,
many events and the histo-
ry. We offer so much more
than a mall," she said.

OUR VIEW


Enough time. Let's solve issue of Myakka flooding


It was way back in 2008 when
Earthjustice won an appeal in a
case that dealt with flooding of
the Crowley Museum and Nature
Center's property and the Flatford
Swamp along the upper Myakka
River.
The flooding occurred when
vegetable farmers used groundwater
to irrigate their fields. The amount
of water used was more than needed
and it resulted in flooding and waste
of a precious resource. A side effect
was the killing of thousands of trees
downstream.
We have learned that mismanaged
environmental issues tend to become
regional in size and while they may
not affect us directly, they do eventu-
ally affect us indirectly.
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District, known as
Swiftmud, issues permits for that ir-
rigation and continued to do so even


though the withdrawals sucked water
resources from our underground
aquifer.
Swiftmud argued at the time that it
was not responsible for the flooding.
The judge did not agree.
Under the threat of revoking the
permits for irrigation, the court
ordered Swiftmud to come up with a
resolution.
Now, five years later, a fix is yet to
be determined.
Susanna Martinez Tarokh, spokes-
person for Swiftmud, said this week
that staff has been working on
solutions and has decided there is
"no one best management practice
that will mitigate issues within the
Flatford Swamp."
The statement went on to say
"The district will address the issues
with an adaptive management
approach, continue with 'FARMS'
projects where the district partners


with farmers on water conservation
measures in the upper Myakka
watershed, and investigate several
potentially large projects to restore
water levels within the swamp to
historic levels."
Swiftmud says the ideal approach
is to capture the excess flow before it
enters the swamp and pump it to a
central collection point to deliver to a
potential user.
We agree that is a marvelous idea.
We believe a reservoir financed
by Swiftmud and the authority -
would be a win-win solution for all.
The growth of Sarasota and Manatee
counties calls for additional water
supplies in the future, so capturing
water that is being wasted is just a
common sense answer it seems to us.
Our friends at the water authority
also like that idea.
"We have had conversations about
catching that water supply," said Pat


Lehman, director of the water au-
thority. "Swiftmud has been working
with Mosaic on a plan like that.
"It is water that Manatee is going to
need in the 10-20 year range."
Lehman said the authority
would be open to paying perhaps
25 percent of the cost of the reservoir
- possibly using grant money. That
leaves about 75 percent of the cost to
fall on Swiftmud.
Why should Swiftmud pay such a
huge chunk?
Well, first of all because it is its ob-
ligation, and secondly because after
five years mulling over an answer to a
court-ordered action, we would think
the water agency would be more than
glad to get this dilemma off its to-do
list.
Let's get serious about this project.
A solution only becomes more ex-
pensive as time passes by. We cannot
afford to wait another five years.


Tell us, who makes


your company great


Audience engagement is a
term used often around our
office here on EastVenice
Avenue. It's a great thing for
us when one of our editorial
stories drives phone calls,
letters and "Let Em Have It"
responses.
It's a perfect example of
audience engagement.
Ron Dupont, our editor, is
constantly reminding me of
how he manages the content
to generate audience en-
gagement. Additionally, Ron
reminds me that writing a
column means you must have
thick skin because writing
a weekly personal opinion
often gets confused with the
newspaper's official stance on
issues.
In any event, Ron's philos-
ophy is a good one and we
recognize that we do the same
thing on the business side of
things. We have our Best of
Venice program where our
readers select our winners via
ballot.
Changes over the past two
years have made a tremendous
difference, and we will contin-
ue to find ways to enhance our
annual program.
Recently, we had you decide
which Sea Venice creature was
the Best in Venice via audience
voting for a 10-week period.
Kim Cool had a blast with this
program and you eventually
got us to one winner, Daiquiri
Deck's "D.D. Dippity."
This turned out to be a
great partnership between the
Venice Arts center, the Venice
Gondolier Sun and our many
readers. Thanks to all involved.
The Sea Creatures were auc-
tioned off this past weekend at
the Venice Yacht Club, and the
results tell the story.
Venice loved them.
Our next need for your par-
ticipation is a pretty important
task. You have told us the
best businesses for 2013 and
I am sure you are comparing


business experiences for the
ballots of 2014.
Now we need you to help
us with a new project for our
Annual Magazine in August,
Business Matters. We want
you to nominate the people
behind the businesses for our
first ever "Top 40 Business
Professionals" recognition.
We are publishing ballots
each Wednesday and Saturday
until the deadline, May 16th.
You, the readers, get to delve
just a little further into the
businesses you love. Get to
know the owner-operator
of your local retail shop and
submit to us why you think
they are deserving of this
nomination.
Perhaps it's someone at your
place of employment who
stands head and shoulders
above the rest that deserves
this recognition. Perhaps it
is a friend who is an owner,
manager or executive working
daily to make life better for
employees and customers.
I bet if we all sit down and
take a few minutes, everyone
could think of several people
like this in our community.
These few minutes you
choose to invest could become
a lifelong memory for the
person you nominate and that
is no doubt impactful. I am
sure they have spent a lot more
time working to earn your
recognition.
We have a panel that will
select the Top 40 of all the
nominations and we will then
proudly publish those selected
40 business professionals
in our next Business Matters
magazine. They will also be
recognized at our Business
Matters reception. We need
your help to bestow this
honor upon these business
professionals.
These things always require
a lot of work on our end,
from preparation to final
presentation. As your local
newspaper, we think these are
important tasks. We have made
significant changes to our Best
of Venice program, where the
businesses are recognized.
Now it is time to recognize
the people behind the scenes
who make these businesses so
powerful in our community.
We are not in this alone,
and this process can't go any
further without your input and
that, my friend, is engagement.

Too late. It's too bad the
Gondolier Sun printed the
articles about the sustainable
home tour as well as Field
and Stream at Lemon Bay
Conservatory in Saturday's
paper, which was the day
of the events, rather than in
Wednesday's edition, which
would give readers an oppor-
tunity to plan to attend. The
home tour article even listed
information regarding advance
ticket sales, which was too
late. The Conservatory article
asked volunteers to come out,
again giving people very little
advance notice.
It's a sign. I was in Venice
all last week on Business 41.
I actually saw one bicyclist
wait until he got the "Go"
signal to go across Business
41. Everybody else is ignoring
the electronic "hand" up. And
they think that the hand up has
25 seconds to count down, that
means that they're supposed to
walk across the highway. I think
somebody needs to do some-
thing. I notice in other states,
they have a different color on
the "Walk" and "Don't walk"
signs. Also, the speed limit is
70, but the big thing now is the
people that are driving slower
than the rest of the traffic in the
left lane. They act like they own
that lane because they may be
going 69 or 70. But they need
to pull over and let the faster
cars by, although they might be
violating the speed limit. They
are a bigger hazard than the
people going 75.
Driving lesson. I feel I must
address a few things to try
to help regarding the elderly
driving on the roads. I am in
my 80s and a driver. There are

many times that I can sympa-
thize with those young people
and their complaints about
us aged ones. That little stick
on your steering wheel is a
directional signal. If you use it,
the drivers in back of you will
know what you are intending
to do.
When you are in the left turn
lane, be sure that the car next
to you that is supposed to go
straight ahead is not turning
also. Be aware of what's going
on around you. If you can't
see your face in your rearview
mirror, that means you can't
see me either. Shift in your seat
or adjust your mirror. Perhaps
then you could see the 10 cars
lined up behind you because
you are not driving the speed
limit. You will not get arrested
for driving the speed limit or a
few miles over it.
This makes me wonder how

extra three days to get here.
If you can barely walk to your
car because of some physical
problem, how are you going
to move in a timely manner if
an emergency happens? Take
a driving course. Someday this
could well be me, and I just
hope that I will be able to tell

Then road rage would diminish

Dogs lamented. Who ever
declared the death penalty for
those two dogs? I hope they
sleep well. Who knows what
antagonized those dogs and
tortured them before, even on
a bicycle going by and yelling
at them or throwing stuff at
them? It's a shame they killed
two dogs that could have been

Tennessee, and for no reason
at all. Terrible situation; terrible
decision.
Not professional. Regarding
the pitfalls in education, read
on. Why are we lacking respect
for teachers? Because they are
not professionals any more
than the telephone guy. They
are just union laborers. Some
are great, some are wonderful;
however, they are just union
employees bargaining for
every day off and every special
contract award they can get. All
- yes, I say all are following
the union call, and every one
of them is using the children
as pawns. Pawns to get mom,
dad, uncle, grandpa to vote for
the referendums and so forth.
We experiment with programs,
different ideas, and if they don't
work, the only losers are the
children. The politicians suck
up to the teacher's association
because they vote and the labor
union bigwigs will deliver the
union dues to those speaking
the educational union cry.

make any money. If
there's no one pushing
the drugs onto people, it's
going to go away. It would
cut the cost of the jail
fines, and a lot of people
have been going to jail for
having just a joint in their
pocket and it has ruined
their life. Most of your
DUI accidents are alco-
hol-induced accidents,
not some drug-induced.
Someone on drugs drives
slower whereas someone
on alcohol drives faster
and recklessly. So, let's
decriminalize all drugs.
Most people are dying
from an overdose of pre-
scription drugs. Let's get
smart and decriminalize
all drugs, take the profit
out of it and do the right
thing.
Plain, no arrow. The
right-turn arrow at the
1-75 exit on Jacaranda
needs to be replaced by


a plain red light. The law
says you can turn right
after stopping on a red
arrow, but the arrow is
confusing to many out-
of-state and senior drivers
who logically conclude
that since a left-turn red
arrow means you cannot
turn left, then a right-
turn red arrow means
you cannot turn right.
This is what I mistakenly
believed for the first six
months after moving to
Venice several years ago.
I've seen drivers turning
to the right and figured
they didn't care about the
law, but I did and would
not turn. We see drivers
stopping there all the
time acting confused. A
neighbor lady got honked
at for holding her ground
and not turning. The jerk
doing the honking left her
shaking and confused.
There must be some tech-
nocratic reason why the
signal is a red arrow, but
frankly, I don't care. Since
we created this much
confusion, it has to be


changed. Get a plain red
light, please.
Dems in 2016. The
underprivileged health
care is at risk because
our Republican governor
insists we had the best
health care system in the
world. You've got to be
kidding. We had no health
care system. Many jobs
have been lost, thanks to
Bush. Obama has re-
placed some of them. You
want a strong military.
Why? You want to go to
war? Quit your belly-ach-
in' and resign yourself
that we Democrats are
all set to put a skirt in the
White House in 2016.
Tick, tock. Recently in
the Gondolier Sun, the
Venice Municipal Airport
manager said of the latest
airport accident, "We ex-
perience three to four mi-
nor incidents every year."
In my opinion, it is only a
matter of time before we
have a major incident. Sit
outside on any weekend
afternoon and see and
listen to the number of


flights landing and taking
off, if you live anywhere
near the airport. There's
a very loud two-engine
plane that is evidently
used for training, as it
makes circles in the sky
and then comes back,
presumably for practice
of landings and takeoffs.
The old thought that the
airport was here before
you were here doesn't
work. The airport was
built for single-engine
aircraft. It's an accident
waiting to happen. The
fumes and noise bother
people adjacent to the
airport. The airport gets
larger every year and the
potential for problems
gets larger every year.
Delete "city." My
husband and I look for
interesting names of
cities. I think the word
"city" should not be
included in our name.
Just call it "Venice on the
Gulf," or "Venice by the
Sea." When you put the
word "city" in, it's a turn
off. It implies it's hectic,


with lots of traffic, etc.
The word "city" takes
away from the whole
experience of going to the
beach and getting away
from cities. I hope people
will consider it.
Head cases. When
Florida repealed its uni-
versal helmet law in the
year 2000, the number of
deaths of riders without
helmets has nearly
doubled. Enough said.
No, YOU Wake Up.
"Wake Up," who recently
called in expressing
disappointment with
letters praising Obama
and Democrats etc.,
ended his call with "Wake
up America." I strongly
suggest that he is the one
who should wake up. His
derogatory comments
on health care reform,
military preparedness,
etc., are totally ridiculous.
These echo the propa-
ganda playbook of Ted
Cruz. These delusional
head-in-the-sand right
wing extremists either live
in an alternate universe

or they have been in a

Freshman pitcher off to fast start for Miami


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Cooper Hammond isn't
pitching like a freshman.
The Venice High School
graduate has been the
right-handed setup
man for the University
of Miami's 24th-ranked
baseball team.
One of two pitchers to
appear in 16 games for
the Hurricanes (20-12),
Hammond is 4-0 with
one save and a 2.45 ERA
through Sunday. His
four victories are tied
for second on the team,
and he struck out 19 in
14 2/3 innings.
He has pitched consec-
utive games when neces-
sary and typically throws
one to two innings. He
earned his third victory
Sunday by throwing one


hitless, scoreless inning
against North Carolina
State.
"He's shown maturity
beyond his years," Miami
pitching coach J.D.
Arteaga said. "Cooper
dominated all fall. He was
not as dominant early
this spring. He's handled
it very well."
Hammond entered the
program with fundamen-
tally sound mechanics
but has made his delivery
more effective.
"I got rid of the higher
leg kick," he said. "It was
taking so long to get the
ball to the plate. It's just
to keep the runners on
base."
He scuffled at the start
of the season because of
a bad habit in his deliv-
ery. Although he didn't
factor in the decisions,


Hammond
wasn't
sharp in
two outings,
allowing two
hits and two
runs one
HAM N earned -in
HAMMOND each.
"I was opening up with
my body," he said. "I
would fly open. I didn't
have my usual accuracy."
He has been relying
on the fastball and
slider, though he started
working on his changeup
during the fall.
Hammond is scheduled
to pitch this summer
in the New England
Collegiate Baseball
League. 'After the Cape
Cod (Baseball) League,"
which Arteaga said, "New
England is probably the
best."

Indians take third in Perfect Game tourney


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
SPORTS EDITOR

After two strong
performances to open the
Perfect Game High School
Showdown last weekend
in Fort Myers, the Venice
Indians appeared poised
for a run to repeat as
champions of the nation-
al showcase tournament.
However, it wasn't to be
after the Indians ran into
an equally strong DeSoto
Central (Miss.) Jaguars
squad in the tourna-
ment's semifinal round
Saturday morning.
Despite outhitting the
Jaguars, Venice fell 3-1
and would take the third
place game by a 3-1 score
over Bradenton's IMG
Academy on Saturday
afternoon.
Venice entered
Saturday morning's game
against DeSoto with very
little sleep thanks to the

Park in Fort Myers.
late ending of Friday's
night's win over Allatoona
(Georgia) at Jet Blue Park
and the round trip to and
fromVenice.


Early on, the lack of en-
ergy didn't seem apparent
as Scott Dubrule reached
second on a throwing
error in the bottom of
the first. He would be
joined on the bases after
Brandon Elmy's single
and both runners moved
into scoring position after
a wild pitch.
The Indians could not
capitalize on the opportu-
nity as Jags' pitcher Drew
Crosby struck out Rhett
Dinka to end the inning.
DeSoto took advantage
of several Indians' mis-
takes in the top of third,
similar to what happened
to Venice several times in
the recent USA Baseball
National High School
Invitational Tournament
in North Carolina.
With one out on the
board, Venice pitcher
Kade Hunkapiller walked
two hitters that would
eventually move into


scoring position on an er-
ror by Dubrule. A DeSoto
runner was forced out
at the plate, but Keegan
James would score the
game's first run on a wild
pitch.
Another run would
score on a bases-loaded
walk and two more came


across the plate on an
infield single by Kyle
Watson. All three runs
were unearned.
Hunkapiller kept
DeSoto in check for the
next couple of innings.
After he surrendered
back-to-back singles to
open the sixth, Faulkner


replaced him with Cole
Kragel, who retired the
side with runners on
second and third.
Venice looked to make
a charge of their own in
the bottom of the sixth

Venetian Cup Regatta set for Saturday


STAFF REPORT

The waters surrounding
Venice will be filled with
youth sailors and their
small boats on Saturday
when the Venice Youth
Boating Association
(VYBA) holds its annual
regatta which will now
be called the Venetian
Cup.
A recent approval by the
Venice City Council gave
the VYBA permission to
host its annual regatta on

Spencer Price. With two
outs on the board, Ryan
Miller smashed a double
down the right field line
and moved to third on
Langston Provitt's single
to left.
Back-to-back walks
loaded the bases, allow-
ing Miller to score. Price
was replaced by Jags'
closer Trenton Mobley,
who got Dalton Guthrie
to fly out deep to right.
Mobley retired the final
three Venice hitters he
faced in the seventh to se-
cure the 3-1 win and send
DeSoto into the champi-
onship game, where they
would eventually fall to
Sarasota.
"They were an out-
standing team and we
battled with them,"
Venice head coach Craig
Faulkner said after the
loss to DeSoto. "We made
a couple of mistakes in
that third inning, but we
really played very well."
The loss put Venice
into the third-place game
against IMG Academy, a
Bradenton-based private
institute that features sever-
al college-bound players
that could be selected
in this summer's Major
League Baseball Amateur

the launching facilities at
Higel Park for the day.
The Council's approval
brings the annual event
to the Venice Yacht Club
from its previous location
at Indian Mound Park in
Englewood, where it was
held for the past 12 years.
A change in the location
of the event led to a name
change for the contest,
which was formerly
known as the Jabbo
Gordon Regatta. Regattas

Draft, at JetBlue Park.
The Indians got the
jump early, with Guthrie
leading the game off with
a single and Dubrule
reaching on a walk.
Guthrie opened the
scoring by coming across
the plate on a groundout
by Mike Rivera.
Back-to-back errors
by IMG shortstop Ryan
Karstetter allowed
DuBrule to score and
Dinka to reach base
safely. Ryan Miller and
Provitt were both struck
by pitches and Dinka
would score when IMG
pitcher Stephen Hueber
walked Trevor Holloway
with the bases loaded.
IMG tried to fight back
in the top of the sec-
ond. Andrew DiLacqua
doubled off Ryan Miller to
start the inning and later
scored on a groundout.
Taylor Lane also got a

club that is hosting.
But for the past 12 years,
the VYBA has hosted its
annual event on Lemon
Bay, not in Venice.
According to a release
from the VYBA, the
inspiration to move the
successful local sailing
contest from Englewood
to Venice comes from a
desire to sail on the home
waters of Roberts Bay
and off Venice Beach in
the Gulf and showcase

third on a wild pitch,
but Miller struck Alex
Mangome out to put an
end to the potential rally.
Pitching proved to be
the story for the rest of
the contest as neither
team could muster up
much offensively. Rylee
Buckmaster took over for
Miler in the third inning
and effectively shut down
the IMG offense, allowing
just three hits while
getting some help from
his defense.
IMG threatened to
score again in the fourth
until Taylor, one of the
nation's top infield pros-
pects, was caught in a
rundown between second
and third base.
Venice had one final
chance to score in the
bottom of the fifth when
Ryan Miller reached third
on a double and throwing
error, but the Indians did
not need any extra in-
surance in the end. Colin

Golf's Old Magic: I'm working on a theory


MARK SEIDEN


April arrives, "snow-
birds" migrate North,
"homesteaders" enjoy
easier parking at the
beaches and less
waiting time and low-
er prices on the golf
courses.
Speaking of golf -
how can I avoid it? I look
out my dining room
window and there's the
10th green.
At about 6:30 a.m., the
earliest bird of the day
is out there cutting the
grass, headlight piercing
the deep darkness. Half
an hour later, still before
sunrise, the early shift
landscaper is changing
the placement of the
cup, digging the new
hole, filling the old one,
shifting the placement of
the flag.
By 7:45, the first
foursome approaches
through the mist, backlit
by rising sun, to begin
the days' chipping and
putting on fringe and
green still glistening
with dew.
Four white ibises with
long, curved orange


beaks peck into the
second cut for bugs.
Speaking of golf -
how can I avoid it? I get
in my car and drive a
quarter of a mile and
there's the driving range
and practice green.
By 8 a.m. my fellow
geriatric swingers are
out on the range, hack-
ing and smacking away
with all our inimitable
arthritically challenged
grace.
Lined up at the first
tee, other oldsters in
motorized carts look like
aWWII re-enactment
army as they await the
starter's signal to roll out
for the day's invasion.
I love the game and
understand to the
depths of my soul the
commitment it takes to
work as hard as we all do
to improve. But as I drive
by the course, I just can't
suppress a bemused
question, especially
about myself and my
fellow senior golfers.
What on earth are
we doing? Just look at
our swing styles on the
range! There's something
so utterly isolating and
revealing about this
game. No wonder, out
on the course, most
foursomes are more like
psychological support
groups than match play
competitors.
So, speaking of golf-
what keeps us at it? I'm
working on a theory.
At the very core,


senior golf is about
practicing and testing
survival skills. We work
to achieve and sustain
strategic actions that
require unity of mind
and body. It is one of the
few sports we can play
for this purpose, at some
level, even into our 80s
and beyond.
A well thought-out
shot, and then its suc-
cessful execution, thrills
us with an adrenalin
rush and renewed sense
of our own ongoing
vitality. Such good shots
require focus, attention
to detail, being in the
present.
Like love, the littlest
strokes, the chips and
putts, all come down to
"touch."
And to be able to make
good shots over and
over again is even more
daunting. Golf absolute-
ly requires sustained
commitment. We can't
get carried away by
success after a few good
shots any more than we
can succumb to shame
and depression after a
few bad ones.
We need to learn
damage control.
We can't let fear rule
on slippery slopes. We've
got to stop all potential
collapses, on the course
and off now! For me,
that involves training,
physical therapy, and
massages from my
loving wife so that my
lower back can support

me through my efforts.
We can't think so big
that we give ourselves
an excuse for failure. A
good round is not, for
example, going to stop
global warming but if
we can improve at golf,
maybe we can also learn
to be more effective in
other areas of life that
are important to us.
And, of course, there's
always motivation from
great older players who
just won't quit.
How about my father-
in-law who just this
week scored an 82 the
50th time in the last
five years that he has
been an "Age Breaker,"
this time scoring sev-
en strokes below his
89 years!
Or my pal, the
champion one-armed
golfer who'll be playing
again this summer at a
tournament in southern
England on a course
that features a huge
WWII-era bomb crater,
never fully filled in but
preserved as a reminder
by the Brits, and trans-
formed into a sand trap
instead.
Just imagine being a
senior American golfer
making a "sand save"
from a Nazi bomb crater!
There's a moment to
bring a lifetime's high-
lights reel full circle.

Sink your teeth into this festival


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
When one Googles
"Shark's Tooth Festival,"
Venice, Fla., pops up.
This year, the city
celebrates its off-shore
sea finned and toothy
creatures with the 22nd
annual festival.
There are many cities
around the world with
the same name. Most also
have canals, but there is
only one Venice known
for its millions of pre-
historic fossilized shark
teeth.
Residents and visitors
prowl the beach regularly
in search of them. The
teeth range in size from
about the size of an ant to
as large as a human hand.
They also come in various
shapes, depending on the
type of shark in which
they grew.


While the teeth of
present-day sharks are as
white as human teeth, the
fossilized teeth range in
shade from beige to dark
gray, depending on the
color of the sand in which
the fossils formed.
Good eyes facilitate
finding them in the sand
along the shore. Florida
snow shovels are the tool
of choice for some tooth
hunters and shark tooth
books are helpful for
identification.
Both shovels and books
will be available for sale
at the festival. As will
shark teeth especially
the unique and the large
varieties, which are not so
easy to find.

Fun,Fun,Fun
The fun begins at
4 p.m. Friday with music
by the Gator Creek Band


from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.,
many vendors and festi-
val food galore, including
plenty of fresh seafood
and, in preparation for
the BBQ festival the fol-
lowing weekend BBQ.
One might even find a
shark tooth at the festival
grounds. Eagle-eyed
shark tooth hunters
have found them along
the beach road, on river
banks and in the median
of West Venice Avenue as
well as alongVenice and
Caspersen beaches.
There will be plenty of
fossil teeth on display.
Study them carefully and
then start looking.
Children always enjoy
hunting in the pre-seeded
shark tooth pit known as
the Shark Tooth Scramble.
Mote Marine Laboratory
will bring its hands-on
exhibit and experts to
answer questions.


These teeth represent one of many species of shark represented annually at the Venice Shark's
Tooth Festival.
If all else fails, there are and quality. Manv dealers mammoth teeth and


always plenty of dealers
willing to part with prized
teeth for various prices
depending on the size


also have other fossils
that also are found in the
area sting ray barbs,
prehistoric horse and


skeletal bones of crea-
tures that lived in the area

'4000 miles


connects generations


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

It's 3 a.m when Vera
Joseph's wayward grand-
son Leo Joseph-Connell
arrives at her apartment
in New York City.
That Leo has come
4,000 miles from his
home in Seattle inspired
the title of Amy Herzog's
play, which runs through
April 27 at the Historic
Asolo Theater at The
Ringling. The play is
part of the Asolo Rep's
American Character
Project, a five-year Asolo
Rep study of what makes
America unique.
"4,000 Miles" is
directed by Herzog's Yale
classmate, Tea Alagig.
The New York apartment
setting is by Marsha
Ginsberg and costumes
are by Alexandra Gage


Englund, with lighting by
Nick Kolin and sound by
Jane Shaw.
Vera accepts Leo for
what he is and where he
is, not chastising him as
his mother has for being
away so long. About
all Vera asks of Leo is
that he shower before
going to bed from being
covered in all the grime
of being on the road on
his bicycle so long.
Vera simply loves him.
Leo does not get such
support from others. His
mother is disappointed
that he has stayed away
so long, never cutting
him any slack for the fact
that his best friend died
in his presence on the
cross-country bicycle
trip.
Leo's girlfriend, Bec
(MakeyWhitehead),
is about to break up


with him, and even the
newest girl in his life,
Amanda (Lisa Dring),
does seem to be a long-
term friendship.
As Vera comes through
for him, even paying
for his rock-climbing
escapades in the city,
Leo ultimately comes
through for her. The two
may be separated by
generations but not by
love and a unique form
of understanding.
The story is told in
a nearly staccato-like
fashion. Progress moves
in segments that vary
from a few minutes to
a few days as we come
to understand what
makes Vera and Leo
click and even, to some
extent, makes the two
girlfriends and even the
unseen mother act as
they do.


There are pieces of the
story, such as the death
of Leo's friend, that are
painfully tragic, yet there
other bits and pieces that
are comical, showing
a mix of the American
character and even real
life for that matter.
There will be talk-
backs in conjunction
with the play on April 15
and 22 after the 7:30 p.m.
performance.
"4000 Miles runs
through April 27 in the
Historic Asolo Theater
inside the Ringling at
5401 Bay Shore Road.
Park at the Florida Center
for the Performing Arts,
5555 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota. Tickets
start at $15. Call the box
office at 941-351-8000 or

Age not a factor when it comes to brain health


FROM FULL CIRCLE PR

While brain health
isn't something that's
always on our minds, so
to speak, it is important
to know the warning
signs if something is
awry. How do you know
when something is
wrong?
"A common miscon-
ception is that issues
with brain health can
only affect older gener-
ations," says radiation
oncologist Dr. Randy
Kahn of Tampa Bay
Radiation Oncology.


"This is simply untrue.
I've treated patients as
young as in their 20s,
and younger, for brain
tumors."
Traumatic injuries
and tumors can both
affect brain health.
Symptoms of a brain
tumor could include:
headaches that don't
resolve or are recurrent
vision problems
difficulty with bal-
ance, hearing or speech
confusion
seizures
personality or
behavior changes.


According to the
American Brain Tumor
Association, brain
tumors are the second
leading cause of can-
cer-related deaths in
males ages 20-39 and in
children, both male and
female, under the age
of 20.
They are the fifth
leading cause of can-
cer-related deaths in
females ages 20-39.
"Symptoms can vary
depending upon the
size of the tumor, how
fast it is growing and
where it is located," Dr.


Kahn explains.
Brain tumors grow
in the brain tissue and
can either be malignant
or benign. A metastatic
brain tumor means
that the tumor did not
originate in the brain
but spread from another
area of the body, while
a primary brain tumor
means that it originated
in the brain.
"It is important to
remember that a brain
tumor can occur at
any age," Dr. Kahn
said. "Brain Health
Awareness Month


(which was in March)
can bring issues such
as brain tumors to light
and hopefully urge any-
one who's experiencing
any unusual symptoms
to go see their doctor
and get checked."

AboutTampa
Bay Radiation
Oncology
Tampa Bay Radiation
Oncology (TBRO) was
formed in 2003. It is
a locally owned and
physician managed
organization committed


to providing experi-
enced, state-of-the-art
cancer treatments in a
caring and professional
manner.
The physicians believe
in a team approach to
work with other cancer
specialists to coordinate
patient care and provide
the best cancer care
possible so patients will
receive their unique
treatment in the manner
they expect while not
having to travel far from
home.

County partners keep tabs on health ranking


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF HEALTH

The Florida
Department of Health in
Sarasota County (DOH-
Sarasota) recognizes
the value of measuring
health outcomes using a
variety of data tools.
Sarasota County
Health and Human
Services officials re-
cently acknowledged
the 2014 County Health
Rankings & Roadmaps
tool, released by the
University of Wisconsin
and the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation.
This study is the fifth
in a series of annual


reports that highlights
the many community
factors that influence
health and measures
progress using estab-
lished data sources,
many of which are
available from the
DOH-Sarasota at www.
floridacharts.com.
These rankings, which
address physical envi-
ronments; social and
economic factors; health
behaviors, and access
to clinical care, are a
snapshot of the health
of counties across the
nation.
The report reinforces
the benefit of communi-
ty collaborations since


health and well-being
is achieved through the
collective and ongoing
efforts of many commu-
nity partners.
Sarasota County's
Community Health
Improvement Plan
(CHIP) addresses op-
portunities for improved
health as identified by
the community. DOH-
Sarasota has partnered
with many stakeholders
to implement CHIP and
collaborates regularly to
track progress.
Through collaboration
with local governments,
nonprofit organizations,
health care facilities,
business groups,


schools, faith-based
organizations and
other stakeholders, the
DOH-Sarasota works to
improve the health of all
people in the county.
"Under the umbrella
of the 'Healthy Sarasota
County' branding, we
see great promise in
addressing a range of
chronic diseases that
drive employee health
care costs through
workplace wellness
initiatives," said Tidewell
Hospice Wellness
Consultant Jessi Neitzel.
According to local
health officials, Healthy
Sarasota County
Workplaces is the


county's only commu-
nity-based and commu-
nity-driven workplace
wellness program.
Wellness and health
professionals from the
county's largest public
employers, includ-
ing Sarasota County
Government, Sarasota
County Schools, Tidewell
Hospice and DOH-
Sarasota participated in
its development.
"Through youth-fo-
cused efforts such
as Students Working
Against Tobacco (SWAT),
there is strong support
from local decision
makers to educate
community members on


the dangers of candy-fla-
vored tobacco products
that are designed
to appeal to youth,"
said Tobacco Free
Partnership of Sarasota
County Chair and school
board member Shirley
Brown. "Sarasota County
Government and all of
the local municipalities
have passed resolutions
urging against the sale
and marketing of these
products."

Ferry across waters to Don Pedro, Cayo Costa


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

The state parks on
the bridgeless barrier
islands of Don Pedro and
Cayo Costa are havens
for those who enjoy
beaches that still reflect
the natural ambiance of
Florida.
But those islands have
long been out of reach
for those who do not
have access to boats at
least until now.
Contracted by state
park officials in January,
Captiva Cruises now has
the concession and is
providing regular ferry
service to Don Pedro and
Cayo Costa state parks.
Five companies bid for
the concession.
"If you live in
Southwest Florida, you
need to get out on the
water," Captiva Cruises


owner Perry McCarthy
said. "(Don Pedro and
Cayo Costa) are owned
by the public and the
public should be able to
make use of those parks."
Based on Captiva
Island, his company has
provided various cruise
packages since 1986.
Captiva Cruises offers a
variety of sunset, wed-
ding and party, Cabbage
Key, environmental and
other cruises that are
described in detail at
www.captiva
cruises.com.
The round-trip
ferry ticket across the
Intracoastal Waterway
from Don Pedro State
Park mainland facilities
on Placida Road to
Don Pedro State Park
is $15 per passenger,
and that includes the
state park's $3 parking
fee. Ferry service is now

Captiva Cruises now offers ferry services to Don Pedro and Cayo
Costa on bridge-less barrier islands.


being offered hourly
from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Monday to Saturdays.
Those pickups can be
modified.
"We work with


passengers," McCarthy
said.
Passengers are trans-
ported to Don Pedro on
a 30-foot pontoon boat
that accommodates six


individuals. However,
McCarthy said he has
larger boats available to
ferry weddings and birth-
day parties or any other
large group.
Since January, the
Don Pedro ferries see an
average of 20 passengers
daily, but McCarthy hopes
more people learn about
the regular ferry service.
The ferry service will
be available during the
summer months for year-
round residents, he said.
Captiva Cruises
is also working with
the Charlotte Harbor
Environmental Center on
special environmental
education excursions,
McCarthy said. He also
plans to offer kayak rent-
als and other amenities
in the future.
The ferry trips to Cayo
Costa, a barrier island lo-
cated south of Gasparilla


RESERVATIONS
FOR FERRIES
Round-trip tickets to Don
Pedro State Park are $15, while
Cayo Costa tickets from Boca
Grande are $30.
For more information or to
make reservations, call Captiva
Cruises 239-472-5300.

Island and Boca Grande
Pass, are more expensive
than trips to Don Pedro.
Round-trip tickets to
Cayo Costa from Boca
Grande are $30 per
passenger, while the
same trip departing from
Captiva is $45.
Passengers are asked
to make their reser-
vations in advance to
ensure a seat on the
ferries, McCarthy said.
To reserve a seat, call
239-472-5300.

FST has extended five of this season's shows


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Florida Studio Theatre's
many venues are paying
off.
This season, the
theater company with
the most stages in the


county has extended five
of its shows.
Latest to be extended
is "Poems, Prayers and
Promises" (through April
27) in the Goldstein
Cabaret.
The cast of "Poems,
Prayers and Promises"


includes Joe Casey, Daniel
Emond, Sarah Hund, Ben
Mackel and Dominick
Cicco, who is a popular
returnee to FST. This
is his fifth FST show.
Directed by Russell Treyz,
it features music of the
'60s and '70s by the likes


of the late John Denver,
Simon & Garfunkel, Harry
Chapin and Carole King.
The music will be
recognizable to most but
more memorable may be
that all the performers
play multiple instru-
ments and do it well.


Both FST cabarets offer
meal service. Get there
an hour before the show
to order.
The original Keating
theater is at 1241 N. Palm
Ave. with the Goldstein
immediately to the west
and the Gompertz and


Court Cabarets one block
north on First Street,
Sarasota. Tickets for all
shows may be purchased

International campaign for long-term Springs operator launched


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County and
the city of North Port
have begun an interna-
tional campaign seeking
prospective long-term
vendors to operate and/
or develop Warm Mineral
Springs Day Spa.
Advertisements
seeking proposals for
consideration have been


placed in both print
and online newspapers
and trade publications.
Prospective bidder
requests for further
information must be
submitted online no
later than May 12 to
https://eprocure.scgov.
net.
Completed bid pack-
ages must be submitted
online no later than
May 23 to https://epro


cure.scgov.net.
The request for so-
licitation has also been
advertised in Sarasota
County Procurement's
new BidSync online
system. BidSync al-
lows the Procurement
Department to advertise
solicitations to a na-
tional database of more
than 750,000 qualified
suppliers and service
providers nationwide.


Last month, North
Port and Sarasota
County commissioners
unanimously chose
National and State Park
Concessions Inc. as the
short-term operator of the
Springs. Firm president
Jack Bobo said the goal
of his group is to reopen
the Springs for swimming
only by April 15.
The Springs has been
closed since June 30,


2013, when the city
and the county, which
jointly own the 81-acre
property, failed to secure
a new operator. The
ongoing closure has
caused an outcry among
users of the property's
87-degree lake, who say
the mineral-rich waters
help heal arthritis and
back problems, and the
Springs' shuttering has
caused their ailments to


flare up again.
Bobo said he is inter-
ested in the long-term
deal for the Springs,
but has declined to
discuss his plans. The
short-term agreement
ends Sept. 1. Once the
Springs does reopen, if
the county and the city
do not have a long-term
contract in place by
September, it could
close again.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

A A Q 10963 V;863 0 84496

Right-hand opponent opens one no
trump. What call would you make?

A A good suit is the primary
requirement when you overcall one
no trump. This is about the minimum
acceptable strength, so we would bid
two spades at this vulnerability.
Q 2 North-South vulnerable, as
South, you hold:

4K2 '10 KJ9652JK754

The bidding:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1NT 24 ?
What call would you make?

A This is the kind of problem you
face after an overcall like in question
#1. Remember that making nine
tricks is usually much easier than 11.
You have a spade stopper, so bid
three no trump. This problem would
be much more difficult had the
overcall been two hearts.
Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

A A8762) 754 0 94AQ93

The bidding:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Pass 20 ?
What call would you make?

A You might have stumbled onto a
robbery in progress. Bid two spades
before you are stolen blind.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

SA8764 J8630 AJ 443


The bidding:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1NT Pass ?
What call would you make?


WEST


A Should you employ transfers, bid
two hearts, showing five spades, and
re-bid three hearts, showing four or
more hearts as well. If transfers are
not part of your system, start with
two clubs, Stayman, and continue
with a jump to three spades should
partner bid two diamonds.
Q 5 North-South vulnerable, as
South, you hold:

4 A K972 298 0 A 4K 10873


The bidding:
SOUTH WEST
14 Pass
9


NORTH EAST
24 Pass


What call would you make?

A "Five-five, come alive" is an old
bridge adage. This hand needs very
little to make a game. Bid four
spades!
Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

AAKQ43VQ75 A62*A5

As dealer, what call would you
make?

A Some players would promote this
hand, because of the five-card suit,
and open two no trump. We agree
with that concept, but prefer that the
five-card suit be a minor suit. Open
one spade.

Red Hat Ladies celebrate at TPajama Brunch'


FRAN VALENCIC


ed Hat Ladies know the
secret to a good life is
to throw caution to the
wind, practice being eccentric
and eat dessert first.
The Venice Red Hat Queens
Council held their "Pajama
Brunch" at the Venice Yacht
Club. Some members did wear
their purple pjs.


About 200 women celebrated
a rainy day eating, laughing,
winning prizes and purchasing
bling jewelry from the special
Red Hat boutique. Sometimes
it's good to get together and
just enjoy the spirit.

350 women attended the event
and had opportunities for raf-

baskets each one valued at
more than $50, thanks to the
generous spirit of the Venice


business community.
Anita Justice coordinated
the models. Fashions came
from Eyes on You, Fugates,
Patchington, Sun Bug, Zak's,
Krystyna's, Seaside Chic

The special person of this
week is Emily Sarnecke. This
nice lady enjoys her volunteer
life in Venice, especially with the
Venice Theatre and Epiphany
Cathedral. She housed actors
from Italy during the last
International Festival, and they
quickly became her family.
She enjoyed cooking for them
and making them feel at home.
Emily served as co-chair for
the Epiphany Cathedral fashion


show and luncheon. This nearly
year-round project took hours
of meetings, making baskets
and securing workers to make
the event a success. Emily
serves on various committees
for the Epiphany Council of
Women.
While her volunteer work
is important, Emily enjoys
attending performances by
The Venice Concert Band. Her
family has her heart, and she
cherishes her time with them
most of all. Emily Sarnecke is
one of the women who make
Venice a great place to live.

STAFF WRITER
Jerry York admitted the days seem
shorter and shorter as the first Charlotte
Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix drew near.
But now, it's finally here! Are you ready?
Festivities kick off with a boat parade
and VIP party in Punta Gorda on Friday,
April 11. Practice runs and the races,
as well as other activities, are planned
Saturday, April 12, and Sunday, April 13,
on Manasota Key in Englewood. The
course itself will extend north from Stump
Pass to Englewood Beach.
York, president of the organizing
group, announced that 25 racing teams
are expected. The race is the first of nine
Super Boat International has scheduled for
its 2014 season.
To help ensure the event benefits the
Englewood community, Englewood's three
Rotary Clubs the Lemon Bay Sunrise,
the Englewood and Placida clubs are
joining forces to sell beer and other
beverages, to sign on and oversee food
and other vendors for the race.
The Rotarians will garner 60 percent of
what's earned from the beverage sales on
Englewood Beach.
"We'll have 100 volunteers or more
each dayto work this event'John Mead


ANSWERING
BOAT RACE QUESTIONS
The organizers of the first Charlotte
Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix, which is
scheduled April 11-13, are still fielding
basic questions and clearing up misunder-
standings about the race.
Are the roads going to be closed
to the beach?
All roads will be open the same as any
other day.
Can I park on Englewood Beach
for the race?
Unless you're a resident, family
member or guest at rental properties on
Manasota Key, you will not be able to
park on the key. However, residents, their
families and guests will be able to park
on their own property as they normally
would any other day. Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office cautions that motorists
should expect heavier than normal traffic
during the racing events.
Where can I park?
The boat race itself is billed as a
no-parking event for spectators. Eleven

associated events. The racing weekend is also
the weekend of Palm Sunday.
"People along (Manasota Key) are nervous,
but I hope it's successful,"O'Connor said. The
restrictions on parking, a concern for Manasota
Key business owners, comes during what's still a
busy time in the season, he said.
Because the public beach parking will be
closed that weekend day and night to their
clientele and regular beach patrons, Elmore said,
Manasota Key business owners worry they may
suffer. But he added,"l hope I'm proven wrong."
The Super Boat races will be a non-parking
event, which means there will be no parking
available on Manasota Key for race goers but
instead there is designated satellite parking
within 5-8 miles of the event. Race fans will be
able to enjoy a comfortable, air-conditioned,
& chauffeured ride to the event all three days
without the hassles of fighting traffic or finding
parking.
Coaches will be running at regular intervals
to insure quick and easy transportation to and
from the event throughout the scheduled event
day. For parking locations, visit the Super Boat
website, www.chsbgp.com/location.html.
General admission is $15 in advance and it
covers parking, shuttle, entry to Race Village
good for Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $20
the day of the event. VIP tickets for Friday's pa-
rade in Punta Gorda will cover a special viewing
at Pressler's Restaurant and catered meal with
two drinks included. VIP tickets for Saturday at
Englewood Beach (Michael Saunders) include
coach to venue, special viewing of boats and
stage and are catered with two drinks. VIP
tickets for Sunday's big race include coach to
venue, all catered with two drinks and again
special viewing for both races.

G O SHARK'S TOOTH FESTIVAL


IlJIILUIl

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


For millions of years, sharks have been roaming
the seas around what would eventually become
Florida. So it makes sense that for the past 22 of
those years, Venice has been holding its annual
Shark's Tooth Festival.
Venice, in particular, has been the fortunate
beneficiary of so many of the teeth of those
prehistoric fish that it has earned the nickname
"Shark Tooth Capital of the World."
The celebration of that moniker will be held
this year from Friday, April 11, through Sunday,
April 13, at the the Festival Grounds of the Venice
Municipal Airport.
There will be food, fossils and fun for the whole
family with entertainment, vendors and much
more all weekend.
Maggie Riggall, the executive director of
the Special Athlete Boosters, the nonprofit


organization that presents the Shark's Tooth
Festival, said that over the years, the event has
become so large, that there is truly something
for everyone.


"We have three large tents of fossil vendors,
where people can set up and display and sell
their fossils/she said."It will be great if you are a
collector, or if you just want to see some exhibits.":'


FILE PHOTO
The main attraction of the festival are the
large shark's teeth on sale.

Sharks can shed manythousands of teeth over
their lifetime, and the fossilization of those teeth
usually takes few thousand years. In Florida,
they're relatively easy to find because the state is
surrounded by water and at times in the past, has
been submerged when the ocean levels were high.
The area where Venice lies has a 65 million-
year fossil history, and local clubs like the
Manasota Fossil Club and the Southwest Florida
Fossil Club are full of members who are interested
in collecting and selling fossils and artifacts that
were found here.
The Venice Archives and Historical Collection,
which will have a display at the festival, currently

has an exhibit called"Digging up Discoveries: i"
Southwest Florida Fossils."ln it are depictions of
the monster shark megalodon, shells, corals, and
other sea life dating back over 20 million years. .
For both their museum and festival displays, "
collections manager Michelle Harm said that they
worked with World Fossils, Minerals and Gifts
owner Randy Boshela. ,
"Most of the fossils were found in the Gulf,
just off Venice's coast/she said."We have over *
350 fossils in this exhibit, and some of his
(Boshela's) own fossils are on display here."
The Shark's Tooth Festival, while great for
collectors, is just as much fun for the kids. l
Riggall said that the Coast Guard Flotilla will ,
be broadcasting with a Ham radio from the
festival grounds and the Venice Lions Club will '
be conducting shark's tooth digs in sand.
Children will even be able to test their
riding skills on a mechanical shark. Also, there
will be a shark tooth pit known as the Shark A
Tooth Scramble where children can do some
exploring of their own.
Throughout its 22-year history, the
festival has grown from a small summer
event, to a prime-of-the-season happening, drawing in fossil fans and
collectors from all across the Southeast.
John Ryan, president and CEO of the Venice Chamber of Commerce,
said that because of the public's intense interest in shark's teeth and other
fossils, the festival has always been successful, and he expects it will
continue its popularity.
"It used to be an August event to tryto get people here to Venice when
there weren't that many people around,";' he said. "Now, people come in
just for it and they look forward to this event every year."
The Shark's Tooth Festival will be held at the Venice Airport Festival
Grounds, 120 East Airport Ave., Venice. The dates are Friday, April 11, from
4 to 9 p.m., Saturday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, April 13,
from 10 a.m. to 5p.m.
Admission is $3 per person per day, and children under the age of
12 are free. Proceeds from the festival benefit the Special Olympics of
Sarasota County.

GO CRAFT BEER


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


As craft beers and local craft brewer-
ies continue to gain in popularity, one
thing is becoming readily apparent -
their support of each other is helping
to grow the industry. It seems that craft
beers, which are produced in smaller
batches, are becoming better known
at a rapid rate because of the personal
nature of both the creation process of
the beer itself and the distribution of it
to local outlets.
Scooter Maloney, who introduces
new craft beers to about 15 to 20
venues a day as the craft brand ambas-
sador for Gold Coast Eagle Distributing,
said that for people involved
in the craft beer industry,
the business side of it is all
personal.
"It's more of a relationship
type of business," he said.
"And with the local breweries
coming up, it's all about cama-
raderie if one brewer does
good, everyone does good."
It's very much a face-to-face
business for Clay Yarn, who
was recently accompanying
Maloney on his rounds. Yarn
and his partner Mike Bishop own Big
Storm Brewing Co., a craft brewery
they started in 2012 in Odessa, just
northeast of Tampa.
Big Storm was the first micro-brew-
ery to open in Pasco County and is
still the only one. For the co-owners,
who had begun talking about doing

starting a brewery during their college
days at the University of South Florida,
this venture has been a dream come
true.
"I was Mike's R.A. (dorm resident
assistant) in college, and he grew a
passion for beer before I did," Yarn said.
"He got an internship at the Dunedin


Brewery and then brought me into the
scene."
The first beer the partners began
producing when they opened Big Storm
was called Wavemaker Amber Ale. They
entered it in a competition and their
beer finished in the top five out of 170
entries. That's when they knew they
had a winner on their hands.
Now Big Storm has about eight
to 10 different brews on tap in their
tasting room each day, but the big
three they have in distribution around
the state of Florida are Wavemaker


Amber Ale, Palmbender Pale Ale and
Arcus India Pale Ale. Each of the names
of the beers is a play on the Big Storm
moniker, which Yarn said took them
weeks to come up with, since they were
concentrating on making the perfect
beer before anything else.
Bishop said that even though he and
Yarn like playing around with different
flavors for their beers, like they did
when they integrated cocoa into a
porter beer they made, they tend to
stick with traditional tastes.
"The Amber Ale was something Clay

and I designed together," he said. "We
only try to brew good beer that is what
we like and is true to the style of the
beer."
Coming up within the next year,
Yarn and Bishop will be building a
brand new facility, which will be able
to handle the canning production they
also plan to start.
Maloney said that one of the most
attractive aspects of craft beers like Big
Storm Brewing Co.'s is that no matter
what the different tones of the beer
are, much like an artist does with a
work of art, a brewer leaves their own
unique signature on their beer. That
very personal touch makes their beers
unlike anyone else's.
"With craft beers, there is that
distinctive taste to them," he said.
"Breweries that make them, no matter
what style of beer you are drinking, you
know you are drinking a beer from that
brewery."
Big Storm Brewing Co. is located at
2438 Merchant Ave., #103, in Odessa.
The tasting room hours are Monday
through Thursday, from 4 p.m. to
9 p.m., Saturday, from 2 p.m. to
10 p.m. and Sunday, from 1 p.m. to
8 p.m. For more information, visit
the Facebook or Twitter pages, or call
727-807-7998.
Though Big Storm's distribution is
rapidly expanding all over the state,
right now, you can find their beers at
Revelry Pub and Grill, World of Beer
and Mr. Beery's in Sarasota and at
Gecko's Grill and Pub on State Road 70
in Bradenton.

Blue Heron Pines: A Natural Wonder


A hidden gem in
Punta Gorda,
Blue Heron Pines
offers an 18-hole,
par 60 executive
golf course. With
a length of 3180
yards from the
back tees and
2362 yards from
the forward tees
it allows players
to get out and
play in less time and aggravation than a normal regulation size
course. While easy enough to walk you also have the option of a
pull cart or a motorized cart. Blue Heron Pines is semi-private,
offering both memberships at very reasonable rates and pay-as-
you-go daily fees.
"It's a really great course with a lot of character," Said Matt
Licata, Head Professional. "It may be a shorter course but you
can definitely tell every hole apart. They all have something


unique to them and their surroundings."
The pro shop at Blue Heron Pines is fully stocked with several
brands of apparel and equipment. They also offer a full service
snack bar with a varied menu. They have three beers on tap,
Several different wines and wine coolers, a soda fountain, and
sports drinks. They have hot dogs, popcorn, personal pizzas,
soft pretzels, and several different hot specials ranging from
meatball subs to pulled pork sandwiches.
Blue Heron Pines sits in the midst of a community by the same
name. The community there is very close, throwing community
sponsored parties once a month with attendance of several
hundred even in the off season. It's a great place to live with
people with a wide range of backgrounds and histories. The
community center is a 9,000 sq. ft. Building at the heart of the
community that houses an exceptional arts studio with kilns,
billiards, and a large library to name a few. In addition to the golf
course, the community includes other activities such as
shuffleboard, horse shoes, and an aqua range that utilizes floater
golf balls. Lessons are available at the golf course. Stop by and
see them at 29201 S. Jones Loop Rd. or call the pro shop at

It's lunchtime and Pat Bieneman is seated at the
outdoor patio at Mango Bistro again on historic
Dearborn Street in Englewood.
As usual, it's a working lunch.
The managing broker of the nearby Coldwell
Banker Sunstar Realty frequently interviews
prospective clients over lunch.
"It's not as formal as in my office,"she said.
"This is perfect."
Bieneman became a Realtor in 2005 after
moving to Florida.
"I got into real estate about the time the

market fell out. It was an exciting
challenge."
Bieneman and her husband, Peter,
had previously owned a fundraising
distribution company working with j
schools in Washington.
"We had the best products and the
best service,"she said operating with
the motto, "Treat people the way you
want to be treated."
As a Realtor, Bieneman got involved
with the Women's Council of Realtors before
joining the Englewood Area Board of Realtors.
"I've been in leadership for a lot of my adult
life. I've always believed that you give service to
your community and to your industry;'she said.
Bieneman also believes in striving for
excellence and professionalism in her business.
Now she focuses on recruiting, retaining and
training agents.
"I love nurturing new agents. Rookies are sort
of like buds. I like to help them open up to a
flower;' Bieneman said.
The menu and the atmosphere created by
owners Marie [aforge and Ricardo Roggero at
Mango Bistro provide the perfect location to stop
and enjoy a flavorful meal from French crepes to
gourmet wraps and grilled paninis.
"I've been coming here as long as I can
remember;' Bieneman said.
Her first choice is the veggie wrap with goat
cheese, dried cranberries, walnuts, tomato, red
onion and fresh spinach on a tomato tortilla.

Cafe Bagel offers more


than delicious bagels


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
History has told us that the bagel came to New
York City with immigrating eastern Europeans in
the early 1800s. Back then, vendors used to thread
the fresh bread through its holes with a dowel and
sell them on street corners.
In present day Southwest Florida, there are not
many places where you can get authentic-tasting
New York-style bagels unless you go to Cafe
Bagel in Venice. Owners Jennifer and David
DiPiazza are originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., and
had a cafe there as well. For the past eight years,
they have owned their restaurant here, in addition
to some other family businesses.
"This restaurant was first, and then we had the


Bada Bing (Pizza & Pasta)," David said. -
"I sold that to Jennifer's father and now -
I also have a Dumpster business called
Fuggedaboutit."
The cafe, where they produce
about 22 different kinds of bagels and
13 types of muffins each day, remains
their primary business, though. They
serve those bagels with 11 favors of
cream cheeses, which are also made
fresh at the restaurant.
Jennifer said that the taste of their
bagels is so authentically New York, that both
tourists and locals are drawn to their little cafe.
"We make them fresh every morning," she said.


"We have people coming here to get them from
Englewood to Sarasota."
For breakfast, besides bagels with cream
cheese, lox, peanut butter, jelly, honey or
butter, Cafe Bagel has wraps, burritos and
traditional breakfast platters, which are served
with homemade home fries. The lunch menu
includes New York-style sandwiches like Gianna
Italiana, Hot Corned Beef on Rye and Joey's
New York Club, in addition to grilled chicken
dishes, smoked salmon and other sandwich
selections.
Things have been going so well for the DiPiazza
family at Cafe Bagel, they have decided to open a
location in about two weeks at 6970 Beneva Road
in Sarasota. This one will be called Brooklyn Bagel,
but it will feature the same delicious fresh bagels
as the Venice spot.
"People here have been very warming and

Cafe Bagel makes about 22 different kinds of
bagels each day.
supportive of us," David said. "I think that's
why it's been so easy for us to give back to our
community."
He said they donate food to the YMCA,
Salvation Army, Goodwill, homeless shelter and
food banks on a regular basis.
And at the week's end, Jennifer and David say
they are particularly busy that's when they
have Doggie Sundays.
"It's a local gathering place," Jennifer said.
"People come and sit down outside and bring
their dogs. We treat them good."
Cafe Bagel is at 1811 South Tamiami Trail in
Venice, and is open seven days a week, from
6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit
the website at www.CafeBagelOnline.com, or call
941-493-2095.


. . ... Jennifer and David DiPiazza are the
owners of Cafe Bagel, in Venice.

ROAD TRIP GO


'Tis the season for Adventure Island fun card


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDrrITOR
Busch Gardens has some deals for residents (U.S.,
Canada and Puerto Rico, not just Florida) especial-
ly those who like to get soaked.
Spend a weekend day at Adventure Island, the
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay waterpark, for $47 for an
adult and $43 for a child or for the same price, go
every weekday from now through Sept. 1 with no
blackout dates for the same price.
Or, if you do not want to get soaked every day,
buy a daily and weekend pass to Busch Gardens good
through Dec. 31 and a weekday pass to Adventure
Island good through Sept. 1. The combo deal is $129
for adults and $120 for children.
Since I like to keep up with Kasi, my favorite cheetah
at Busch Gardens and his canine friend Mtani, I much
prefer the combination deal. The main thing is to check
the hours at the water park. Hours change frequently
throughout the season as the sunlight changes.
"We're excited to bring this extraordinary offer to
the loyal Busch Gardens and Adventure Island fans
and guests'said Busch Gardens Park President Jim
Dean in a recent release."ln addition to experiencing
the thrilling rides, world-class entertainment and
over 12,000 animals that Busch Gardens offers, guests
can also cool off at Adventure Island all season long."
A bonus is that visitors enjoythe atmosphere of Key
West without the nearly 8-hour drive from this coast.
Adventure Island has everything one could want in
a 40-acre water park including a 17,000-square-foot
wave pool, tube rides, corkscrew slides, waterfalls, Key
West Rapids, a rambling "bayou'," Caribbean Corkscrew
and plenty of places to just kick back and soak up the


sun and fun. Some water attractions are
warmerthan others.
For an extra price per day, you can rent
a cabana or Chickee Hut. Prices range
from $99.99 to $189.99 (depending on
time of year) per day for a cabana, for
chaise lounges, mini fridge stocked with
bottled waters, locker and four souvenir .
towels. Cabanas can be reserved in '
advance online or at 888-800-5447
or at Guest Relations window on the
island. There also are sand volleyball
courts.
When hungry, choose from a
variety of food emporiums serving
snacks to full meals. There are
picnic areas so you need not miss
a minute outdoors. The Island Surf
Shop has sports wear and beach
wear plus most anything one
would need at the water park.
Children 2 and younger are free
with parent or adult guardian. All children niuij.; te
accompanied by an adult.
There are plenty of lockers, showers and changing
areas which make it easyto dry off and change to go
to both parks on the same day. Don't forget all those
animals (12,000 or so) and coasters and shows at Busch
gardens Tampa Bay. The view from the highest point on
Cheetah Hunt is spectacular although fleeting.
While in the waterpark, wear the waterproof
Caribbean Coin wrist band. Load it up with cash or
credit card and lock up your wallet. Use the wrist band
for all in-park purchases and get unused funds returned
at Guest Relations when you depart at day's end.
These special passes do not include special events

Diabetic foot ulcers

deservedly feared


DEAR DR. ROACH: My
father is an 84-year-old
diabetic. He has had a
wound on his foot (on the
inner side of his right foot,
near his big toe) for about
five months. He has been
treated by a podiatrist,
who has debrided the
wound every week. He
prescribed antibiotics
when the wound has
looked infected. A visiting
nurse and my mother
have changed and dressed
the wound regularly
during these months.
This week, the podia-
trist said he could see the
bone in my dad's foot, and
recommended hyperbaric
treatment. Could you tell
me what your opinion is
of this treatment in my
father's case? Do you know
if it has a high percentage
of success? C.O.
ANSWER: Foot ulcers
in diabetes are common
and feared. Diabetes
damages blood vessels,
both large and small. Also,
longstanding diabetes
decreases the effective-
ness of the inflammatory
response and immune
system. Finally, poor
nerve function in people
with diabetes combines
with these other factors
to predispose one to
developing breakdown of
the skin and development
of ulcers. These ulcers can
get large and deep, and
when the bone is visible
(and sometimes even
when it's not), the bone
is infected. In this case,
there is a high risk of the
need for amputation.
By far, the best way to
deal with diabetic foot
ulcers is to not get them
in the first place. Good
control of diabetes, proper
footwear, regular checks
by a professional and daily
self-checks of the feet for
people at high risk can
reduce the likelihood of
developing ulcers. Early
and aggressive treatment
of precursor lesions, even
mild redness of the skin,
ingrown toenails or fungal
infection of the feet,
should prompt urgent
evaluation by a podiatrist.
Once the ulcer has
progressed to the
point where your dad's
is now, aggressive
measures are called for.
In addition to care by a
podiatrist or orthopedic
surgeon, evaluation by
a vascular surgeon and
a wound-management
specialist may be limb-
and even life-saving.
While hyperbaric
oxygen has indeed been
shown to be beneficial in
several studies (reducing
amputation rate from


- '
Dr. Roach

33 percent to 9 percent in
one study), only an expert
with detailed knowledge
of your dad's case can
decide whether this is
appropriate treatment.
If you trust your podia-
trist, I think it may well
be a useful treatment.
However, I would be sure
that he, or a vascular
surgeon, has looked at the
quality of blood flow to
the foot.
DEAR DR. ROACH: My
dad has an extreme case
of COPD and is on oxygen.
He gets winded just
walking across the house.
Dad lives in Montana; I
live in Florida and would
like him to come visit me
during the cold Montana
winters. I have heard that
it would be easier for
him to breathe at a lower
altitude. People have told
him that if he comes to
Florida, he would never
be able to go back to
Montana because he
wouldn't be used to the
altitude any longer. Is this
true? D.W
ANSWER: The lower
oxygen levels at high
altitude, like some cities
in Montana, can be a real
problem for people with
any kind of chronic lung
disease. In those cases,
supplemental oxygen
or a lower altitude can
make people feel better
and even live longer.
Given that your dad is
already on oxygen, a lower
altitude would be similar
to dialing up the oxygen
a bit. He may certainly
prefer Florida's winters to
Montana's.
We begin to be accus-
tomed to high altitude in a
few days, but full acclima-
tization takes weeks. Your
dad will be able to return
home after his visit.

and chronic bronchitis,
the two elements of
COPD, in detail. Readers

Yesterday's Jumbles: SHOWN FAULT EXCITE SCULPT
Answer: The greedy owner of the seafood market
was -"SELL-FISH"

Self-cleaning oven has drawbacks


Dear Heloise: I love the
self-cleaning feature on
my oven. I have noticed,
though, that sometimes
I have a lot of smoke and
smells that linger in the
house during and after
the cleaning cycle. Do
you have any hints? -
Emily D. in Oklahoma
There are some things
that you can do. Try not
to let too much time
pass between cleaning.
The more food spills that
build up in the oven,
stuck to the bottom, the
more chance of smoke
and fumes during the
self-cleaning.
If there are a lot of spills,
try cleaning it as much as
possible before starting
the cleaning. Then, during
cleaning, open some
windows to help get out
the heat, smoke and
odors. Heloise

Countertop
protection
Dear Heloise: I have
discovered a great use for
those pizza stones that
many people have but
find useless except for
cooking pizzas. Whenever
I use a slow cooker
or a tabletop cooking
appliance (for example,
an electric indoor grill),
I place my pizza stone
beneath it to protect my
countertop from heat.
Works like a charm, and
makes me feel better
about the cooker staying
on for so long in my
absence. Carolyn B.,
via email


Hints from Heloise

Cleaning kettles
Dear Heloise: I have a
stainless-steel kettle that
keeps getting calcium
deposits in the bottom of
it. Vinegar cleans it beau-
tifully, giving it a like-new
appearance. I now make
cleaning the kettle with
vinegar a regular part of
my routine. Heidi L. in
Indiana
So glad that you have
discovered this Heloise
classic hint! Readers,
to clean your kettle,
fill it with vinegar (full
strength) and bring it to
a boil for 20-30 minutes.
Allow the vinegar to cool,
scrub the kettle for a
final cleaning and rinse
thoroughly. Heloise

Easy chopping
Dear Heloise: I was
browning some sausage
for a pan of lasagna and
came up with this hint:
The sausage was still in
clumps that were larger
than I would like. I tried
breaking it up with my
pastry blender, and it
worked great. I wish I had
thought of this years ago!

Woman with transgender lover

is looking for family support


DEAR ABBY: I'm a
divorced woman with
grown children. I have
always supported gay
rights and thought of
myself as straight. But a
few months ago, I met a
woman, "Stephanie."
We hit it off immediate-
ly, and I was shocked to
learn she's a transgender
woman who was born
male. We have spent a lot
of time together and are
falling in love. Stephanie
will be having surgery
soon to complete the
transgender process.
I have been surprised
and disappointed by
the lack of support from
my family and friends,
whom I always thought
were open-minded. Some
have voiced support, but
have shown no interest
in meeting her and seem
uncomfortable hearing
about her.
I'm excited about this
relationship and would
have thought my family
and friends would be
happy for me, as I have
been alone for a long
time. But now I find
myself refraining from
mentioning Stephanie in
conversation.
How can I discuss her
with others? We are taking
things slowly and not
jumping into anything,
yet we can definitely see
ourselves spending the
rest of our lives together.
We have already faced
disapproving strangers
and handled it well. -
LOVES MY FRIEND IN
OHIO
DEAR LOVES: It
appears Stephanie isn't
the only one in your
relationship who is in
transition. Both of you
are, and because it is new
to those around you, they
may not understand it
- which is why they are
uncomfortable.
The fact that Stephanie
is transgender should not
be mentioned right off
the bat. It is not the most
important thing about
her, and it should not be
her defining character-
istic. Discuss the matter
with your friend and ask
how she would like to be
introduced and referred
to. It's only logical that
this will vary according to


DearAbby

how close these people
are to you.
DEAR ABBY: I am a
single mother who has
had my share of heart-
break. I was with "Kent"
for almost two years.
We moved in together
and talked often about
marriage. Things were
going great, but then he
lost his job. After that,
finding and keeping a
job became harder and
harder for him.
One day when I came
home from work, all
of Kent's clothes were
gone. He said he had
moved back in with his
mother because he didn't
feel comfortable with
me paying all the bills.
He assured me he still
wanted to remain in the
relationship, and once he
could keep a steady job
he'd move back.
Three months later, he
broke up with me. The
following week some
mutual friends told me he
had gotten married!
When I confronted
Kent, he told me he still
wants to have a sexual
relationship with me.
I refused and haven't
spoken to him since.
Yesterday I learned that
I am pregnant with his
child.
I am turned upside
down without a clue
what to do. Is it wrong
to feel hatred for him? -
BETRAYED IN TEXAS
DEAR BETRAYED:
Under the circumstances
your feelings are under-
standable. Now, here's
what to do. Contact
Kent and his wife and
tell them the "happy"
news that he is going to
be a father and you
expect him to shoulder
all the responsibilities
that go with it. Then talk
to a lawyer to be sure he
does.


"Behold, lIam the Lord, the God of all flesh: Is there
any thing too hard for me?"-Jeremiah 32:27.
The obvious answer to that question is no. Give God
your tough problem. It's not too hard for Him.

Opening lead: Ten of
North-South were not playing
negative doubles, hence the scrawny
one-spade bid from South. West's
aggressive pre-empt stampeded
North into a four-spade bid that he
quickly regretted after East's loud
double. How bad would the damage
be?
East won the heart lead with the
ace and continued with the queen -
he wanted to attack the North-South
trump holding at every opportunity.


Declarer ruffed this in hand and led
the queen of diamonds for a
successful finesse. He next led a
diamond to the jack followed by the
diamond ace. East ruffed and kept up
the heart attack by leading a third
round of the suit.
South ruffed this in hand,
discarding a club from dummy, and
led the jack of trumps, which was
allowed to hold. East won the next
trump and continued with yet a fourth
round of hearts. Declarer ruffed this
on the board and drew the last trump,
exhausting his own last trump in the
process.
After all this heavy labor, declarer
had only to find the queen of clubs to
bring home his doubled contract. It
looked like East started with a 4-5-2-
2 distribution. That meant that West,
who had started with three clubs, was
a 3-to-2 favorite to hold the queen.
Declarer was just as inspired in the
club suit as he was during the rest of
the hand he played East for the
queen! North took all the credit for
this result after his "inspired" four
spade bid.

April 30.
Jacaranda Boulevard's
$2.1 million resurfacing
project is in the design stage
with construction anticipat-
ed to start this fall.
Venice Bypass is an
FDOT-funded project to
widen it from Center Road
to Bird Bay Drive from
four to six lanes, adding
bike lanes, sidewalks,
traffic signal improve-
ments, drainage, utilities,
fighting and landscaping.
A five-year work program,
construction is planned for
2018 and 2019, as design
work proceeds.
"It is going to be miser-
able, there is no good way
around the Bypass, and it is
coming," Robinson said.

comments by retailers who
were quoted in past Venice
Gondolier Sun editions
saying it is so crowded on
WestVenice Avenue during
February and March, they
had both returned to their
stores and chosen to walk
earlier or later the next day.
In February, it was the
highest-ever occupancy
at 91.5 percent of open
homes. The lodging average
daffy rate in February was
$194.52, a 7.1 percent
increase over last year. More
rooms were available and
they were full.
"My roots are in NewYork
State and my family said
many local folks were just
jumping into their cars and
leaving to take a vacation


here," Robinson said.
This economy is good
because of tourism, but
it was pretty low when
she took office in 20 10.
Unemploymentwas
12.2 percent and now it
is right around 6 percent,
quite amazing for just four
years, she said.
An economic jobs
funding pool was set up to
attract jobs here and com-
parries have been awarded
$5.8 million to create 2,480
jobs, of which more than
1,800 are boots on the
ground in this county.
Turning to the traffic con-
gestion issue on the island,
Robinson had good news.

That is good news for
when Honore Avenue's
south extension to
Pinebrook Road is com-
pleted next year. It will
be possible to travel from
Center Road to Manatee
County without using
U.S. 41 or Interstate 75.
However widening and
straightening parts of
Pinebrook Road between
Edmondson and Center
Roads will become essential
to manage the expected
increased traffic.
More good news for driv-
ers: a $2.2 million project
to resurface county roads,
including Knights Trail,
Laurel and various other
roads in South County, will
begin with bids opening

are extremely appealing,
said Halvorsen. There are
U.S. competitors, but he
believes Origins service
and quality will be more
favorable.
Typically the existing U.S.
bi-fold door is designed
for the $3 million home,
whereas Origirfs market
will be from $400,000.
Origin U.K. has revenues
of $30 million and employs
104. InVenice, the three
employees are Halvorsen;
Neil Ginger, owner and
CEO; and Jakub Zahradil,
plant manager.
Next month, they will
hire three people for
production and as demand
increases recruit more
salespeople. For the first
year, they are projecting
revenues of $400,000 with
up to 15 employees.
In the U.K, glass does not
have to be supplied with
the bi-folding doors, but it
is obligatory in Florida and


Origin obtains supplies
from Cardinal of Ocala.
Halvorsen plans as part of
the Wring schedule to set
up a door-fitting team, but
his prime business model
is to sell through dealers
who do the installation.
The major sales effort
will be the comparison with
competitors who take up 18
weeks to deliver whereas in
the U.K. and now in Venice,
the customized order will
be supplied next day.
Manufacturing equip-
ment is costing $250, 000;
total investment in the
buildout, showroom and
production is $500,000. All
products are custom-made
using aluminum with high
velocity hurricane-ap-
proved glass available in
more than 150 colors.
Their design allows the
exterior doors to fold in or
out on easy-run tracks.
Numerous safety fea-
tures include anti-lift bars


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST
Apparently, it was
coincidence that Origin,
a UK-based bi-folding or
easifold door manufactur-
ing company, choseVenice
for its U.S. base less than
five miles from the largest
national U.S. based manu-
facturer, PGT Windows.
Florida appealed to
Origin as the perfect place
for bi-fold doors because
Floridians tend to go in
and out of their house
often and the doors
are designed for that.
Further, the net worth of
Gulf residents lends itself
to high-end products, said
Ben Halvorsen, president
of Origin.
Origin USA is operating
from an 8,000square-foot
location at 771 Commerce
Drive, Suite 16. A three-
man team has set up
the company display
