After improvements, a flood in his backyard


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
When David Napoliello, a
Venice homeowner since 2000,
heard about the Flamingo Ditch
improvement project, he was
elated.
Ever since he moved to
Flamingo Drive in Venice, his
property repeatedly flooded.
He blamed it on the failures of
Outflow No. 5, a large ditch that
channels water into the Gulf.
With the newly dredged ditch,
and a bit of rerouting, he thought
his problems would be solved.
But that didn't happen. The
project finished, and with a
recent rain came the same
flooding.
"Council meetings docu-
ment from the mid 90's its (the
outflow's) inadequacy and need
for a pump and pipe station,"

David Napoliello's backyard on Flamingo Road still floods, even though
Flamingo Ditch was recently repaired.


Napoliello said via email.
"The stagnant water and
flooding have been around for
over 20 years and so I stated


early on to a (city) engineer that
changing the landscape and
pulling out trees and weeds will
not mitigate the fact that there


is a wooden trough blocking
the drainage," he said. "I was
overjoyed when I heard a pump
station was going in and then
disgusted when it was canceled
due to costs.
"I asked the Corps of Engineers
for a hearing, which I feel should
have been granted but it did not
happen.
"I am writing you today to
confirm officially that the near
$1 million landscape job was
a complete failure," Napoliello
said. "The water is backing up
all the way through the drain
pipes to the streets, the outflow is
again clogged with thousands of
pounds of sand and my property
is again flooding."
City Engineer Kathleen
Weeden and Stormwater
Engineer Manager James Clinch
took a second look at the area,

Flamingo Ditch outfall still filled with
sand. City engineers wanted a pump
to relieve flooding but a lack of funds
forced the project to be scaled back,
without a pump.


Begging for a kidney


SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLY
Charles Lynch will do anything to find a kidney donor for his son. He recently stood on an Englewood street corner,
hoping to attract a motorist who would want to be a "hero"and donate a kidney.


Man takes to streets for his son


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
Charles Lynch will do
whatever is necessary to find a
kidney donor for his 35-year-
old son, Graham.
He has taken to standing on
the corner of Pine Street and
South McCall Road (State Road
776) with a sign:
"Son needs a kidney. Be a
hero and donate life. I will work
free for you."
Neither Charles nor Graham's
mother Ellen, nor others in
their immediate family, are


deemed compatible donors.
"I am hoping to find a living
donor," Charles said. "Most
people want to give money,
but one woman who has done
missionary work wants to talk
to me."
Charles, a seasonal
Englewood resident, said
he's heard others have been
successful taking to the street
to find organ donors for their
loved ones. He thought it was
worth the effort.
Graham's kidneys are barely
functioning, and he needs
dialysis


HOW TO HELP
Anyone wishing to be evaluated as
a donor for Graham Lynch can call
Vanderbilt's kidney-pancreas transplant
program at 615-936-0695. For more
information about Graham's situation,
call his father at 239-877-6388.
12 hours a day, seven days a
week.
"He's a good man," Charles
said.
Both he and his wife are
retired teachers from Kentucky.

City gets first peek


at capital budget


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Just as the Venice City
Council began its workshop
on capital projects, lightning
crackled, the electricity went
out momentarily, and back-
up lights came on.
"What page is the gener-
ator on," asked Mayor John
Holic, tongue-in-cheek as he
thumbed through the just-de-
livered capital improvement
plan for the city.


Believe it or not, the city
hasn't produced a capital
budget book for city leaders
to peruse in years.
Instead, capital projects
were sprinkled throughout a
370-page operating budget
document, making it some-
what difficult for policy-
makers to get a handle on the
scope and depth of its own
Capital Improvement Plan.

First nesting turtle is recorded on Manasota Key


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
The Coastal Wildlife Club
reported Friday the first
loggerhead sea turtle nest of
the 2014 nesting season on
Manasota Key.
Zoe Bass and Wilma Katz -
the primary permit holders
overseeing volunteer sea turtle


patrols on Manasota Key-
said CWC volunteers John
Leon and Bob Cowger discov-
ered the loggerhead nest north
of the public Manasota Beach
and Caspersen Beach.
Leon and Cowger also
identified a false crawl where
a female sea turtle started to
crawl onto the beach but, for
whatever reason, returned to


the Gulf without nesting.
"Both are CWC stalwarts,"
Katz said of Leon and Cowger.
While they reported the first
nest on Manasota Key, Katz
said she heard a report that a
sea turtle nested on Sanibel
earlier this week.

They met by chance when he, Marty Mosteller, asked
,her to dance at the Venice VFW. She said she would
S. and that her name was Karen Larr. As they walked
.. into each others arms on the dance floor, she had
the thought, "Once in a while in an ordinary life, love
gives you a fairy tale:' As a memento depicting the
: i path their lives have taken since their first meeting,
they had their picture taken (inspired by the famous
painting "The Singing Butler," shown at left) at
Nokomis Beach by Kayla Campbell (Marty's grand-
daughter). Joyce McMicken played the part of the maid
and Jay Wright, who is Marty's grandson, served as the
butler.

ROBBER
FROM PAGE 1
as a man who littered
near his storefront
ministry and who
happened to be wearing
the clothes the robber
was wearing when he
committed the crime.
The minister made the
connection after seeing
a security photo of the
robbery in progress in
the Gondolier Sun.
"We certainly had lot
of evidence thanks to
the community," said
State Attorney Shannon
Hankin, who prosecuted
the case.
Due to Baird's ha-
bitual offender status
and past prison time
served, Hankin said she's


going to seek enhanced
prison time for Baird at
the June 12 sentencing
hearing.
Bottom line: Baird
will serve a minimum of
15 years, Hankin said,
although she plans to
seek the maximum 30
years under enhanced
guidelines.
Baird, who was caught
Wednesday July 3, 2013,
has a lengthy criminal
history, including a prior
arrest for another bank
robbery in Manatee
County. Court records
show 47 criminal and
traffic violations in
Manatee County, includ-
ing 14 felonies.
He was staying in a
motor home on storage
property in the Seaboard
area in Venice when he
committed the Venice


SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A

bank robbery.
Police caught up with
Baird's girlfriend as she
was getting his remain-
ing belongings, with
cash in hand. Police
believe they were going
to flee.
She wasn't prosecuted
after she cooperated in
identifying his where-
abouts. Police picked
up Baird in Manatee
County.
Venice Police Chief
Tom McNulty credited
the successful results of
the investigation to the
quick response of the
patrol units and detec-
tive division on the day
of the robbery, and to
members of the commu-
nity who came forward
with information.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 7,2014


TURTLE
FROM PAGE 1
Offically, state wildlife
officials identify the local
sea turtle nesting season
from May 1 to Oct. 31.
Between now and the
end of May depending
upon the weather and
other factors Bass
said the CWC expects
loggerhead sea turtles
to "dribble" onto Gulf
beaches. Generally,
nesting numbers pick up
in June.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission reported
9,952 loggerhead nests
on Gulf beaches in 2013.
Out of those nests, the
state reported 4,185
loggerhead nests on
Sarasota County and
another 909 loggerhead
nests on Charlotte
County beaches.
The Coastal Wildlife
Club oversees volunteer
sea turtle patrols on
Manasota Key and report-
ed 2,660 nests in 2013.
Mote Marine Laboratory
oversees sea turtle
nesting from Longboat
Key south to Venice and
reported 2,247 loggerhead
nests in 2013.
Sarasota and Charlotte
counties and the city of
Venice have implement-
ed ordinances to ensure
sea turtles are protected.
The CWC and Mote
Marine offer these tips
to protect the turtles and
hatchlings:
Disconnect, shield
or turn off outdoor
lights visible on Gulf
beaches from May
through October, which
is required by ordinances
in Sarasota and Charlotte
counties.
Close drapes after


dark and move beach
furniture off the beach.
Move or adjust interior
lights visible from the
beach.
Do not use flash-
lights, tiki torches,
fishing lanterns, photo
flashes or fireworks on
Gulf beaches at night.
Enjoy building
sand-castles, digging
holes or other play on
the Gulf beaches, but
refill any holes before
you leave. Sea turtle
hatchlings and shorebird
chicks can be trapped
in holes, so can nesting
adult sea turtles.
Remove chairs, toys
and other obstructions
from beaches at night.
Do mini-cleanups of
trash on the beach that
might hinder nesting
turtles or hatchlings.
Food scraps left on the
beaches attract coyotes,

Graham family to get home funded by Fifi's


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

It is a dream come true
for the Graham family,
who within a few weeks
will for the first time
have a home of their
own, near family and
friends with much
of the credit going to
generous people they
will probably never see
or meet.
For the donors the
consignors to Fifi's stores
in Venice and particularly
the store owners, Roberta
and Russell Pettigrew-
it is the satisfaction of
seeing the fulfillment of a
job well done.
The three Fifi's con-
signment stores are at
223A and B W Miami
Ave. and 219 W Venice
Ave., together with a
fourth furniture store at
The Rialto. All contribut-
ed to the project.
They and their staff,
with the cooperation of
customer consignees,


provided clothes, shoes,
purses and furniture to
the Habitat for Humanity
Thrift store. Sales of
those items funded the
building of the Grahams'
home.
"I would like to thank
everyone who has come
and supported, donated
and everything," said
26-year-old Marissa
Graham. "It is quite a
project to build a house,
which costs a lot and is a
lot of hard work."
Graham has four
children: Talajah Platt,
Synae-Jah Williams,
Alvin Johnson and Austin
Bowman. Growing
up in Grove Terrace,
Graham attended Venice
Elementary School.
When the Grove
housing facility was torn
down, her mother took
her to Sarasota.
She attended Booker
Middle School, then
moved to Olympia High
School in Orlando,
graduating as a certified


nursing assistant.
She is employed by
Approved Home Health
and Tidewell, working
throughout Sarasota and
Manatee counties.
At 14, Graham had
helped her mom when
she obtained a Habitat
home in Sarasota and
then assisted her grand-
ma, who has a Habitat
home in Laurel.
Two years ago, she de-
cided to apply to Habitat
to get a house of her own
and has waited longer as
she wanted to live in the
Laurel community with
family and friends.
After making an ap-
plication, she qualified,
attended an interview
during which a manager
requested her credit
score and discussed her
background and then
completed a check-off
questionnaire.
Attending a homebuy-
er's class, she then had to
put down an amount of
money. Part of Habitat's


program is instilling a
degree of ownership with
an applicant working
300 sweat equity hours.
To manage this re-
quirement while working
at her job, Graham
volunteered on Tuesdays
and Saturdays for four
hours and made up
hours by helping build
homes in North Port.
"When I first came
down to look at my
house, they were in-
stalling the fiberglass
before putting up the
drywall," she recalled. "I
helped and will continue
to work as I only have
30 hours to finish."
One of a select group
of three-bedroom
and two-bathroom
single-family homes at
Dedication Court, near
Laurel Park, it is expected
to be completed in June.
Excited at the new op-
portunity, the family has
already agreed the girls
will share a bedroom,
the boys another, with

Outside their new Habitat for Humanity South County home
in Laurel, the Graham family (1-r, Talajah Platt, Synae-Jah

is completed next month.


Graham having the third.
The three older children
will go to Laurel Nokomis
School and the younger
to day care when they
move in.
Graham is returning to
school, taking classes for
further nursing educa-
tion. Initially, she wants
to work in a hospital, She


plans to continue a class
she began at school in
nursing management,
eventually hoping to
have her own nursing
facility.
"I have always wanted
a house and I considered
by the time I hit 30, I will
kind of be settled down
and stable," she said.


New gallery offers 20 years of photographer's work


For her new business,
photographer Jenny
Waring is going back
20 years by bringing
prints to her new store
for customers to visit and
see instead of posting
online.
She has opened The
Gallery of Jenny Waring,
207 S. Nokomis Ave., next
to Puttin' on the Ritz.
She is taking the
concept of her website
gallery and making it a
physical gallery. She will
be opening with a selec-
tion of 20, half being her
portrait work that she
has done for 10 years and
the others being her fine
art, including beauti-
ful pictures of Venice
sunrises and sunsets and
Florida lifestyles all for
customers to purchase.
Her services include
business headshots, fam-
ily beach scenes, babies


and newborn portraits
at the studio or in their
home.
A local girl, she grew
up on Nokomis Avenue
and attended local
schools. She married out
of school then worked
part-time at Publix and a
bank before starting pro-
fessional photography
from her home in 2004.
"I feel it is time for me
to go big or go home,
to step out and say I
have been doing it for
10 years, this what I have
to offer," she said.
Her grand-opening
event will be on the
evening of Friday, May 9.
The gallery is open
daily except Wednesdays
and Sundays. Call
941-484-6580.

Tervis celebrates Innovation Center start


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Tervis has a long and
storied history since 1946
and is now coming into its
own as the next phase in
the company's evolution is
started.
"We are going to move
some dirt as we celebrate
this next step in the
growth of Tervis," said Pat
Redmond, CEO & presi-
dent, holding a spade to
turn dirt on the start of the
Tervis Innovation Center.
The center will be
roughly 24,000 square
feet in size and feature
a futuristic design. It is
expected to be completed
in November when more
than 75 employees will
move in.
"All the creative ele-
ments of our business
will be here: our web,
marketing, line devel-
opment, licensing, new
product development
and engineering teams
in here," Redman said. "It
will really help us to give
our consumers exactly
what they want. We need
to focus and bring home
better innovation for our


products, designs and for
our customer experience."
With more than 800
employees in the existing
offices and manufacturing
building, it is a little bit
crowded, he said.
"This center will help
relieve that problem, but
more importantly, it will
break them out of their
functional groups and
silos, allowing them to
collaborate and work as
a team and move around
the open space," he said.
Preparing for the future
growth and expansion,
Tervis has new board
members Michelle Stacy,
former president of
Keurig, and Kevin Haley
joining current board
members: James Gregory,
Tim Clarke and Al Carlson,
and shareholders Norbert
Donelly (chairman), Ann
Donelly, Rogan Donelly,
and Amory McAndrew.
Additionally, Tervis
has brought in some
new management talent:
Danene Jaffe, the head of
Marketing; Mark Lawson,
the head of Engineering;
and Melissa Allen, the
head of Technology.

Steckel opens fine men's consignment store


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Tommy Steckel had the
idea a year ago that there
was a need in Venice for a
Fine Men's Consignment
store.
Working in a downtown
store, he would see men
sitting out on the avenue
waiting for their partners
who were shopping in
the ladies fashion stores
and consignment shops.
A lot of ladies regularly
shop at fine boutiques
and finer apparel con-
signment shops, but


there are no men's fine
consignment stores. The
guys are left to go into
a restaurant or sit and
smoke; now he plans to
do something for them.
In the next few days,
Steckel is opening
Tommy's Fine Men's
Consignment at 101 West
Venice Ave., Suite 8 in
Island Plaza across from
Pineapple's.
"There are many wom-
en's consignment stores
around and most of them
do not carry a men's
department," he said. "It
will be a fine menswear


store with island fashion
resort shirts and shorts,
sports jackets, a full line
of designer tuxedos,
gentlemen's slacks and
shorts, a small collection
of suits and ties.
'Accessories will be
everything from cufflinks
and studs to antique
penknives, the whole
gambit of anything that
has to do with men."
FromWyckoff, N.J.,
Steckel, at 16, was
taught and trained in a
men's fine haberdash-
ery shop, even doing
fitting alterations for


suits purchased by men
working in Manhattan.
Graduating high
school, he went to
Manhattan's 7th Avenue,
working in the fashion
industry representing
North Carolina finishing
mills to the clothing
manufacturers.
On the sales force,
he trained and learned
how to put the resistant,
permanent crease on
solid and printed fabrics
over five years. He repre-
sented the Jones Apparel
Group of Manhattan's
7th Avenue until 1981,


then switched over to the
wine and liquor industry,
a change resulting from
entertaining customers
during his previous
career.
When his wife retired
after 33 years from the
New Jersey State Police
senior officer administra-
tion seven years ago, they
retired to Venice.
Taking a part-time job
with men and women's
fine fashions, Captain's
Landing of West Venice
Avenue, he extended his
hours and became man-
ager and has completed


44 years in the industry.
His plans are to accept
new and gently worn
gentlemen's clothing
and accessories at the
store. He will offer
consignment facilities
and invites men and
women who have items
to donate to call the store
at 941-786-1850.
Items not sold may
be donated and will be
sent to Bridge Church
in Venice and used in
mission trips to Peru,
Panama and even in this
country to people who
have very little.


Biz gives away 4,000th pair of free shoes


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Holders of a Dick's
Shoes frequent-buyer
club card maybe a little
disappointed they did not
visit the store recently as
one lucky lady's purchase
of her seventh pair of
shoes brought her fame as
the recipient of the 4,000th
pair of free shoes.
"Ann Hertzog has been
one of our good customers
for many years," said
Kathy Crisman, co-owner
of Dick's Shoes at 219W
Venice Ave. "We took the
photograph to celebrate
her success."
The frequent buyer
program was her husband


Bruce's idea in 1999 during
a vacation in Las Vegas.
When customers purchase
a pair of shoes, they are
offered a club card. Each
purchase is recorded
and when they buy their
seventh pair of shoes, they
are entitled to a free pair.
"It has been pretty suc-
cessful over the years and
when people come back to
Venice, they do remember
us," she said. "They bring
their shoe club cards each
year, or collect them, even-
tually getting a free pair. It
does encourage customers
to buy that seventh pair.
"Sometimes girlfriends
will put their purchases
together and share it,
with one getting the free


pair, and mothers do that
for daughters frequently.
Several customers living in
Venice bring their visitors
each year who put sales on
the host's shoe club card
so she gets the free pair."
A snowbird for years
who frequently purchases
at Dick's Shoes, Hertzog
now lives in Venice. She
was excited as she knew
she was getting close,
and it was around one
o'clock when she chose
her seventh pair. Crisman
checked to find it was the
4,000th free pair to be giv-
en away since the program
began in 1999.
Dick's Shoes had been
open in The Rialto Center
since 1960. The Crismans

but were unable to offer
much more than a contact
for financial assistance.
They, too, had hoped for
federal funding to install
the pumps, but some
neighbors objected to
locating the pump houses
in their backyards, and
grant funds dried up.
"This gentleman owns
the lowest house adjacent
to Flamingo Ditch, which
was constructed with a
finished floor elevation
5.5 feet below the FEMA
flood elevation," Clinch
said.
"This area has always
had historical drainage
issues, which is why it is
a FEMA flood zone, and
this drainage system has
operated in this manner"
for years.
The most recent
Flamingo Ditch project
was "intended as a water
quality project," Clinch
said, and not a flood
control project.
"It has been successful
in that regard."
He forwarded Napoliello
information regarding the
FEMA Hazard Mitigation
Assistance Grant Program,
which offers financial
assistance to properties
that are located in repet-
itive loss areas and were
built significantly below
the flood elevation.
Napoliello implied he
might have an alternative
- the judicial system.
"Unfortunately, this
seems headed to the
courts, and not just for
failure to mitigate the
flooding," he said, a ref-
erence to a public records
request that he says went
unfilled.

Area charities to compete in 24-hour fundraiser


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

For organizations like
hers, Valerie Goddard
said The Giving
Challenge provides a
breath of fresh air.
"It's an opportunity to
engage residents, busi-
nesses and community
donors in a different
way," said Goddard,
executive director of
The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota
County. She added the
fundraiser comes at a
time when revenues
from donations nor-
mally begin to slow for
charitable organizations
in the area.
The Giving Challenge,
a 24-hour online fund-
raiser that starts today
at noon, has many
game-like elements that
aim to make it a fun
experience for partici-
pants and donors. Every
hour, one randomly
chosen donor will
get $250 added to his
donation. In addition to
the hourly prizes, one
donor who contributes
between 12 a.m. and
3 a.m. will win $5,000
added to his donation.
Six foundations have
pooled $675,000 to be
awarded to organiza-
tions in fund-matching
and prize grants.
The partners are
Community Foundation
of Sarasota County, The
Patterson Foundation,
John S. and James L.
Knight Foundation,
Manatee Community
Foundation, William
G. and Marie Selby
Foundation and the
Charlotte Community


Nevertheless, the
workshop went on.
Council members pep-
pered department heads
with inquiries about
projects that drew their
interest, like an airport
access road and $2.25
million in road impact
fees they intend to use to
construct it, $1 million
from the gas tax to pave
and re-stripe some of
the downtown area, and
nearly a half million in
One Cent Sales Taxes to
replace a fire engine.
Public works projects in-
clude repairing the city hall
roof, and putting in place
funds for park pavilion and
shelter repairs, something
that hasn't made it in
previous budgets.

the organizations that
have donations from
the most individuals.
When the chal-
lenge ends at noon
Wednesday, the orga-
nizations that finish
up on top will receive
grants between $20,000
and $1,000. There will
also be prizes awarded
to charities for various
philanthropic organi-
zation feats, such as
best nonprofit-business
partnership and best
overall campaign.
"What we are encour-
aging the organizations
to do is be as creative
and thoughtful as they
can in their approach
to the giving challenge,"
said Susie Bowie, direc-
tor of nonprofit strate-
gies for the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County.
Over 400 charities op-
erating out of Sarasota,
Charlotte, Manatee and
DeSoto will participate
in the challenge.
Many of the orga-
nizations take fun
approaches to rousing
interest, Bowie said.
As an example, she
mentioned the Pines
of Sarasota's parody
of the pop music
video "#selfie" by
The Chainsmokers,
which can be viewed
at www.youtube.com/
watch?v=GlyCzoG5dts.
"The organizations
that do that kind of


There was even talk
about another general
obligation bond for future
significant projects, like
moving Fire Station No. 2.
The Capital
Improvement Program's
five-year plan catalogs
$36.5 million in projects
funded primarily from
the city's general fund,
paid with resident prop-
erty tax dollars. Fiscal
Year 2015 projects total
$7.2 million in the draft
budget.
When state and federal
funds are added, the city's
FY2015 capital budget
jumps to $42.8 million,
with a five-year total of
almost $140 million in
capital projects.
"It's going to take some


thing are really able to
leverage their social
networks and make
people feel excited
about giving to them."
Goddard said the
resource center's strat-
egy is to mobilize their
social media following,
send emails out to their
supporters, and encour-
age supporters to get
their friends involved.
"There's excitement
because you're trying to
marshal resources," she
said. Her organization's
goal is "to try to see
how much buzz we can
create."
One of the advantages
related to the buzz
surrounding The Giving
Challenge, Goddard
said, is people who
learn about her orga-
nization through the
event may go beyond
donating money and
volunteering their time.
Many of the partic-
ipating charities have
specific projects in
mind for funds raised
through the challenge.
For the Women's
Resource Center of
Sarasota County,
challenge funds will go
toward "our emergency
fund (for) women who
come in and need
emergency assistance
for short-term housing,
emergency support or
other things women
may need in transition-
al crisis situations."
North Port Meals on
Wheels, which is partic-
ipating in the challenge
for the first time this
year, is hoping to find a
new funding source in
an unexpectedly busy
year.


time going through it just
to come up with intel-
ligent questions," Holic
said.
"It's a first look, and a
new step in the budget
development process,"
City Manager Ed Lavallee
said.
"There was some blood
spilled in this, (over)
some projects that are
not included," Lavallee
said. "What did not
make it are maintenance
projects and operational
costs. They may be very
important and very
expensive, but they don't
meet the definition of a
capital project."
Budget talks begin in
earnest in August.

OUR VIEW


Low-TCH pot a good start but not enough


The Florida Senate overwhelmingly
passed a bill that would legalize a
form of medical marijuana known as
Charlotte's Web that has been effective
at controlling epileptic seizures. The
measure now goes to the House of
Representatives, which considered
a similar bill that allows doctors to
prescribe it for conditions other than
epilepsy.
Gov. Rick Scott has indicated
support for setting up clinical trials of
the drug.
Charlotte's Web, named after a
Colorado girl with a rare form of epi-
lepsy known as Dravet Syndrome, has
a low level of the high-inducing chemi-
cal THC, but high levels of another
chemical called cannabidiol (CBD).
The Senate bill would set allowable
levels for both substances, prohibit
users from smoking it and require a
doctor's prescription.
Patients treated with Charlotte's Web
ingest oil extracted from the plant.
The bill represents a compassionate


shift in the Legislature's approach to
medical marijuana, driven in part by
its opposition to a separate attempt by
an advocacy group to put a constitu-
tional amendment on the November
ballot that would legalize medical
marijuana for a variety of ailments.
Attorney General Pam Bondi, with
support from legislative leaders and
Scott, failed to convince the Florida
Supreme Court to reject the amend-
ment language.
Medical marijuana enjoys high
support among Florida voters, ac-
cording to multiple polls, and is likely
to surpass the 60 percent threshold
required for approval. It is strongly
opposed by the Florida Sheriff's
Association and individual sheriffs,
including Charlotte County Sheriff Bill
Prummell and Sarasota County Sheriff
Tom Knight.
Both sides of the debate have
cherry-picked data from numerous
studies to make their case, but we've
been especially disappointed in the


scare tactics employed by medical
marijuana foes, who have constructed
a bogeyman of rampant drug use and
rising crime rates, especially among
juveniles.
Such claims are contradicted by
data from 21 states and the District of
Columbia where medical marijuana
has been legalized. In fact, a 2012
study by the Institute for Child Health
Policy at the University of Florida
College of Medicine concluded that
medical marijuana laws "have not
measurably affected adolescent
marijuana use."
A 2014 University of Texas at Dallas
study reviewing 16 years of crime data
in states with and without marijuana
laws found that "medical marijua-
na laws were not found to have a
crime-exacerbating effect on any of
the seven crime types. On the contrary,
our findings indicated that MML
precedes a reduction in homicide and
assault."
If the Legislature reconciles and


passes the two competing bills and
Scott signs the resulting legislation,
expect to hear the argument that the
availability of low-THC marijuana
negates the need for the medical
marijuana amendment.
We don't buy that argument and
neither should voters. There is an un-
derlying cynicism in the Legislature's
embrace of Charlotte's Web. Last year,
a similar bill introduced in the House
never even got a committee hearing.
But once the marijuana amendment
won a spot on the ballot, legislators
were falling all over themselves to
line up behind it. The reason? The pot
amendment is expected to drive up
turnout among voters who don't vote
Republican
We hope the estimated 150,000
Floridians who would benefit from
Charlotte's Web get the relief they
desperately need. But we trust Florida
voters will see that a limited, politi-
cally motivated, approach to medical
marijuana doesn't go far enough.


Family outing turned


into mighty "TreeUmph


KIM
PHILLIPS
GUEST COLUMNIST
It started out to be a fun
family outing as I am desper-
ately trying to pack in as much
quality family time as possible
before my oldest son leaves for
Navy boot camp.
The family time turned out
to be the most challenging
day of my life. My own mother
arranged this "special" day for
us. I have since teased her for
it being a form of (adult) child
abuse.
My own mother exposed me
to what I described as pure
torture during this day.
This place you ask? It is the
TreeUmph! Adventure Park in
Bradenton. This is definitely not
your ordinary "day in the park."
This five-stage obstacle
course up in the trees is an
exciting and progressively
difficult series of obstacle
courses that take you through
wobbly bridges, hanging nets,
bungee swings, swinging logs,
foot bridges, Tarzan ropes, ZIP
lines and more that are up to
60 feet in the air.
Now this course may not
be so challenging to someone
who is physically fit, works out
everyday, is a young, energetic
teen, and so on.
However, this working, very
busy mom of three children
hasn't seen the inside of a gym
in seven years. BIG mistake.
And don't get me wrong. You
are given every opportunity
to stay within your physical
limitations and your comfort
zone at TreeUmph! But me...I
had to defy my own personal
limitations.
I had two teenage boys telling
mom she could never make it
to the end and that I would give
up by Course 3. I'm a stubborn
one. I don't like to be told I can't
do something and by golly, I
had something to prove and
two smart-alec teenage boys to
prove it to.
And before I knew it three
hours later, there it was and
there I was...the last course,
the Summit Course, described
as "EXTREME, and is not for
everyone.
The eight unique challenges
will test your nerves, agility
and endurance. You must have
the desire, the skill and the
strength.
More important, you must
be chosen. Our guides have
the final say on your chance to
Summit. They may even put
you through a pull-up test to
be sure you are capable... and
worthy!
Worthy? That's funny! Test
my nerves? No problem there.
My teenage boys do that quite
frequently.
Agility and endurance? Quite
frankly, I was pretty much


COURTESY PHOTO


Kim Phillips'fun family outing
turned into a test of will, strength
and determination at Bradenton's
TreeUmph! Adventure Park, where
there were many obstacles high in
the air, including various zip lines,
such as the one she is using above.
"spent" at this point but I was
not giving up. Just as I was
trying to take a little break and
collect myself, I felt the pressure
of a group of guys approaching.
I did not want to hold them
up. As I looked back in despair
at this group, not sure if I really
could make it any further, my
legs trembling under me, I
realized I was right in front of
NikWallenda.
My thought to myself, you
have got to be kidding me??!!!
The famous aerialist who
crossed the Grand Canyon and
the Niagara Falls is waiting for
me to move?
I looked at him and in my
humor said, "No pressure here.
It's just NikWallenda that I am
holding up." He smiled and
quickly reminded me that I had
a $20 bet with my son to win
and that I could do this.
I had come that far, and
I needed to prove my boys
wrong. Instead of leaving me
in the "trees" like my own kids
did, Nik stayed with me, offered
encouragement and advice how
to maneuver my way through.
And then there it was,
TreeUmphant!, a 650-foot-long
ZIP line ride that signified the
end!
Described as "an exhilarating
return to Base Camp" doesn't
quite cut it for me. Triumphant,
exhausted, happy, proud,
relieved, inspired, and even sur-
prised were the mix of emotions
I felt as I glided through the air.
I DID IT!
As I now reflect back on this
day, maybe this challenge was
actually my mom doing me a
big favor? Through this exercise,
I was able to recognize my
strength and determination,
my will to keep going and never
give up.
Maybe this was a step toward
preparation for an even more
challenging day in my life that
lies ahead? I now believe it was
and that day is June 17.
That is the day my first born
baby boy leaves home to serve
his country, and I have to let
him go to become a man.
Thanks Mom for always finding
a sneaky and profound way to
guide and prepare me for the
real "obstacles" I must face in
life.

a multiple-part series on the
cosmos. These two series seem
to be in direct conflict with
just about every major point in
their explanation of the basic
facts of the universe and about
life.
Would it be possible for one
of your religious page editorial
members to comment on the
difference and what I should
be believing. There seems to
be a direct challenge of what
I've been led to believe and
now I wonder who I'm to trust
on these subjects. I would be
grateful for that analysis.
You Answer. If someone
seriously physically harms you,
should they go free? After all, it
was their first time.
Really? A dog wedding
attended by about 30 people.
You've got to be kidding.
Public Park. I'd like to
answer the caller's question
about why the Bible Reading
Marathon is permitted in
Centennial Park. The park is
public. So public, in fact, that
if granny next door wants to
sunbathe in her bra at the
park, she will. Let them read
the Bible. Those people read
all night; even at 2 o'clock in
the morning. If you want to
grouch about the public park,
why not address the volume
of drunks getting in their cars
after leaving the bar right next
door.
Bad Walking. This morning
at Miami Avenue and Business
41, an old couple coming east
on Miami walked right through
the stop for the pedestrians
onto a green light for north-
bound 41. They held up the
traffic in the northbound lane,
and the southbound lane was
slowed down and didn't know
what they were going to do.

Public Park, Part II.
This is in response to the
person who questioned
the separation of church
and state and the Bible
marathon reading in the
Venice public park. It's
allowed for the same rea-
son that the Muslims are
allowed to shut down city
streets in New York City.
The country guarantees
you freedom of religion,
not freedom from

is open to anybody. You

especially during holidays.
When school is out, they're
going to have their children

on people's sympathy. They
treat the people who work

They feel they are

They trade the gift cards

Please don't give them a

Bridges & Money.
Ouch! Your April 19
edition article noted that
an average bridge cross-
ing now costs $89 million.
That could provide a
$50,000 scholarship for
each of the 1,900 students
now attending grades 9 to
12 atVenice High School.
Growth is expensive.
A single bridge for the
Legacy Trail will cost $2
million. Bikers must now
walk their bikes across
the Venice Avenue bridge,
but then have to run the
gauntlet of cars at U.S. 41.


And yet, people whine
about the total $50 million
cost for the rowing park.
Great Editorial.
Congratulations for one
of the best editorials in
the April 19 issue of the
Gondolier relating to
the airport. Most of the
people around the airport
have been the "me, me"
people. You pointed out
the facts very well.

Downtown looks bare and
naked without the dolphins

calling about the news-

that have occurred about

well-funded, fully funded
project, to make sure
that the landscaping for
this particular transit is
appropriate and attractive.
It would be a great im-
pression of our commu-
nity when people come
through if it's landscaped
properly. Wouldn't it be
wonderful to have a mile
or two of nice palm trees
or some sort of attractive
vegetation as opposed
to signs and drainage
ditches? Hopefully we'll
take the opportunity to
capitalize on this to make
Venice more beautiful
and attractive to visitors.
It's one chance to make
a lasting impression. I'd
be very interested to hear
about what other people
feel about this.
Taxi Speeding. Harbor
Drive South residents have
complained about a taxi
driver that speeds up and
down our street, and other
streets in Golden Beach,
in excess of 50 mph. The
speed limit is only 25 mph,
yet this taxi driver dodges


children, bike riders and
walkers while driving at
least 20 miles over the speed
limit. We ask that whoever is
employing this taxi compa-
ny to please use a different
company that will abide by
the speed limit.
Holic & Timing. It's
too bad your article on
Holic's affair didn't come
out when he was running
during the election. He
would have never won.
After reading the article,
I, for one, don't want him.
When are you going to
resign, Holic? It's the only
decent thing to do.
Block Eyesore. I want
to make a suggestion. I'm

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL




Elmy fires no-hitter in regional win


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
SPORTS EDITOR

As the Venice Indians
baseball team continues
their run for a third
straight state champion-
ship, the team has been
calling on their seniors to
help lead the way.
Brandon Elmy, one of
six Indians' seniors, an-
swered that call Tuesday
night by firing a no-hitter
and blasting a two-run


homer inVenice's 10-0 win
over Estero that has put
Venice within one win of
a return to the state Final
Four in two weeks.
"They want us seniors
to lead us all the way
through, so to come
up big like this for my
team is good," Elmy said
moments after tossing his
first career no-hitter on
the high school level. "It's
something to take with
me and hopefully we can

final. Elmy came up huge for the Indians, throwing a no-hitter
and hitting a two-run homer in the Indians' 10-0 win over the
Wildcats.


keep this ride going all the
way to states."
Elmy worked his way
out of a jam in the top
of the first after two of
Estero's first three hitters
reached base on an
error and a walk. They
advanced into scoring
position on a wild pitch,
but Elmy struck out and
forced a flyout to end the
inning.
Estero would not have
a runner reach base the
rest of night after Elmy
retired the final 14 hitters
he faced.
Venice, which collected
only one hit in their 1-0
regional quarterfinal win
over Naples Thursday,
erupted for 11 hits against
Estero ace Zeke Pietryzk.
Dalton Guthrie and
Scott Dubrule led off the
bottom of the first with
back-to-back singles and
would both score on a
sharp grounder between
first and second by Rhett
Dinka.
Dinka added another
RBI in the bottom of the
third when his single
scored Dubrule.
"He had three big hits
and three RBIs when
we needed them most,"
Venice head coach Craig


Faulkner said of Dinka.
The fireworks really
began for the Indians in
the bottom of the fourth.
Jake Grubbs and Langston
Provitt led off with singles
and would both score
on a double to center by
Guthrie.
Dubrule would send
Guthrie across the plate
for the third run of the
frame.
With two outs in the
fourth, Elmy stepped in to
face Pietryzk. Elmy would
put the exclamation
point on the win with a
two-run homer to left in
the bottom of the fourth
that may have landed in
the Intracoastal Waterway
directly behind the left
field fence.
"It was a high changeup
and he left it up ... and
I took advantage of it,"
Elmy said.
Elmy said his fastball
was his best pitch of the
night. That pitch helped
lead to five strikeouts on
the night, including the
final three Wildcats batters
to preserve the no-hitter.
The game was eventu-
ally called after four and
a half innings due to the
10-run mercy rule.
"Elmy was throwing all

first inning of Tuesday night's Regional Semifinal game against

the Wildcats.


his pitches for strikes and
pounding the zones with
breaking balls," Faulkner
said. 'A no-hitter in the
playoffs against a team
that's this good is pretty
exciting."
Ryan Miller added a pair
of RBIs for Venice, which
is now 21-7 on the year.
Dubrule finished with
three hits, three runs and
an RBI.
"Estero has a great
team and they've had a
great year, but it was just
our night," said Faulkner,
who collected his 30th
career win in regional
play Tuesday. "Elmy was
dealing on the mound and


the rest of the guys were
doing the little things. We
couldn't have scripted this
any better."
Venice is set to host
King High School on
Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. for
a berth in FHSAA State
Finals. Venice faced
King three years ago in
the regional and they
haven't lost in the post
season since after collect-
ing back-to-back state
championships.
"It's nice that they're
coming to us and we'll
have something to show
them," Faulkner said.

Venice's Edmonds



brings home medal


By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER

For Venice High
School's senior thrower
Jovan Edmonds on
Saturday, the throwing
wasn't as hard as the
waiting.
Edmonds took seventh
in the Class 3A discus at
the FHSAA Finals track
meet at University of
North Florida's Hodges
Stadium in Jacksonville
with a mighty heave of
149 feet, 10 inches. It
landed Venice its only
medal of the state meet.
The senior didn't set
a personal best as he
wanted, but leaving with
hardware made up for it.
"I was blessed to even
get into the state finals,"
he said. "I was happy."
He led after first flight
after getting off a throw of
145-8, but then Edmonds
had to watch everybody
in the second flight try to
better him.
It was a long wait.
"In the practice throws,
they were throwing bad,
throwing out of bounds,"
he said. "But as they got
into it, they started put-
ting throws out there and
my name just went down


further and further."
He settled into seventh
for the finals, where he
stayed. More importantly,
he took home a medal.
"I'll probably wear it
for the rest of the school
year," he said. "I'm grad-
uating, so I'll probably
wear it a lot."
The Venice boys
1,600-meter relay fell
short of a medal (top
eight), as the team of
John Cokley, Shane Burns,
Noah Montgomery and
Marcus Laurin finished
10th in 3:22.95, a mark
that bettered the school
record the relay set at the
district meet.
"We just wanted to get
that school record again,"
Cokley said.
Senior Elizabeth Leone
didn't enjoy the same
throwing success as
Edmonds, partly due to
slick, rainy conditions
that made the throwing
ring something of an
adventure.
Leone threw 95-11 on her
first attempt, but never got
comfortable, experiment-
ing with different shoes
and different techniques.
She fouled on her last two
attempts and missed the
finals, placing 13th.

Edmonds poses with his

medal Saturday night at the
University of North Florida's
Hiodges Stadium in Jackson-
ville. Edmonds took seventh
in the Class 3A discus with a
heave of 149 feet, 10 inches. It
landed Venice its only medal
of the state meet.
She admitted the
weather played a part.
"I felt fine, but I think
the weather psyched me
out because I thought I
was going to slip," she
said. "It was a combina-
tion of weather and it just
wasn't my day. I wish I
had pulled something out
there, but it didn't work
out that way."
Junior pole vaulter
Theresa Kelley finished
13th, topping out at 8-6.

KIDNEY
FROM PAGE 1
Graham also taught
science and math to
eighth-graders for three
years, before going to
work for the Corvette as-
sembly plant in Bowling
Green, Ky.
"He's so weak now
from being on dialysis
for three years," Charles
said.
A website has been
established for his son at:
kidney.homestead.com.
Learning what his
father has been doing,
Graham said, "It shows
what type of person my
dad is. He's always been
my hero. He laughs it off
and says that I've always
been his hero."
A routine physical in
2010 revealed the first
warning that something
was wrong with Grahams
kidneys. A urine test
showed up with too
much protein. Graham
said the doctor suggested
he get a follow-up exam.
A few weeks later, he
experienced pain in his

lower back. A follow-up
exam revealed his
kidneys were functioning
at 30 percent.
By 2011, Graham said
he resigned from his job
at the Corvette plant, and
since has suffered other
ailments related to his
kidney failure. He's now a
patient with the trans-
plant center of Vanderbilt
University Medical
Center in Nashville,
Tenn. He's been assigned
a transplant coordinator.
Both Charles and
Graham said Vanderbilt
maintains strict proto-
cols for people wanting
to donate kidneys.
"Fifty to 60 percent will
be ruled out during the
interviews," Charles said.
"And if you get past the
interviews, you will have


one of the best physical
you will ever receive."
Vanderbilt follows
federally established
protocols for deceased-
and live-organ donation,
administered by the
United Network of Organ
Sharing, to determine
what donations go to
whom, said Dr. J. Harold
Helderman, medical
director of Vanderbilt's
transplant center, and
the chief of kidney-trans-
plant medicine.
Graham is one of 950
patients waiting for
kidney transplants at
Vanderbilt University
Medical Center.
Kidney transplants
have become a routine
medical procedure,
Helderman said.
Vanderbilt had planned

to do between 225 to 250

He also said data show
those who have kidney
transplants can expect
a longer life expectancy
than those who remain
on dialysis.
Helderman encourages
people to visit www.srtr.

information on trans-
plant centers nationwide.

Playwright Nilo Cruz wins 2014 Greenfield Prize


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Current Greenfield
Prize winner, Nilo Cruz,
reaps a bonus befitting
the Cultural Coast.
"His Greenfield Prize
is a $30,000 commission
for a new play, but while
the money is great, there
is much more," said
Bruce Rodgers, executive
director of the Hermitage
Artist Retreat. "The
winner has fundamen-
tally unlimited residency
at The Hermitage. The
Asolo Theatre will be
working with Nilo in
the development of the
work, and in two years,
we look forward to seeing
some sort of exposure to
the work."

"The beginning is the
most important part of
the work."
-Greek philosopher
Plato

Perhaps in no pro-
fession is that more true
than the arts.
With the right sur-
roundings and frame of
mind, a painter can be
inspired to make that
initial brush stroke on
the canvas, and a writer
can be motivated to
put those first words to
paper.
That's the concept
behind the Hermitage
Artist retreat, on
Manasota Key.
It invites accom-
plished painters,
sculptors, writers,


playwrights, poets,
composers and other
artists from all over the
world for residencies on
its beachfront historic
campus, giving them
the unique opportunity
to be inspired by the
Hermitage's lovely,
natural surroundings,
which include a lengthy
unspoiled stretch of
beach and several
cottages where invited
artists may work on
projects for as long as
six weeks.
Since the first artist
in residence, sculptor
Malcolm Robertson of
Scotland, the artists
have been selected
from all over the world.
Robertson was the de-
signer of the Greenfield
Prize.
There is no applica-
tion process for either
the Hermitage residency
or the Greenfield Prize.
Artists are selected by
nomination only.
The Hermitage and the
Greenfield Foundation
joined forces in 2008 to
establish the Greenfield
Prize, which awards "an
annual $30,000 com-
mission to an individual
mid-career artist, to
create a new work."
Each year, it will go to
an artist in a different
discipline. That person
will be selected by a
blue-ribbon panel of
anonymous experts in
the designated field.
Three finalists will be
asked to submit a vision
of their potential project.

Portrait of current
Greenfield winner
Nilo Cruz
Born in Cuba and
raised in Miami, Cruz is
best known for his play
"Anna in the Tropics,"
which won the Steinberg
award, the 2003 Pulitzer
Prize for Drama
and received a Tony
nomination.
Rodgers said that
everyone is anticipating
great things in the future
from Cruz, the first
Latino Greenfield Prize
winner.
At the Ringling
International Festival,
Cruz saw the Asolo's
production of "The Life
of Galileo," and was so
impressed with Asolo ex-
ecutive director Michael
Donald Edwards' direc-
torial work, he decided
he wanted to work with
him. The feeling seems to
have been mutual.
"He (Cruz) is one of
the most revered and be-
loved playwrights in the
United States," Edwards
said. "And he has come
to English as a second
language with an intense
beauty."
At last month's dinner
honoring the prize
winner, Oscar-winning
("Moonstruck") actress
Olympia Dukakis was
the featured speaker. She
currently teaches master
classes in acting at
colleges and universities
across the country.
As a longtime actress,
she said she understands
the importance and the
power of the words that
are written for her.
"Writers allow the
ability to care about how
we are in the world and
how we work with each
other," she said. "In their
words, we are revealed
and maybe even
changed. The Hermitage
supports and gives the
writers what they need
- time."
Cruz has been the
recipient of other
awards and fellowships,
including two NEA/
TCG National Theatre

Cruz' off-Broadway
play, "SottoVoce,"
premiered in February
at Theatre for New York
City and the next month
at the Miami Dade
County Auditorium.
Cruz said that receiv-
ing this year's Greenfield
Prize will give him the
opportunity to fully
concentrate on creating
his next important work
for the theater, for which
he said writing is just


asking the question,
"what if?"
"Although I've written
more plays than I can
count on my hands, I
still consider myself
a beginner, because
writing is about encoun-
tering wisdom through
innocence," he said. "To
receive The Greenfield
Prize is more than an
honor. It's an inspiring
recognition."

Venice resident receives prestigious scholarship


FROM STATE COLLEGE
OF FLORIDA

State College of Florida, Manatee-
Sarasota (SCF) Venice resident
Zachariah Pramschufer received the
2014 Jack Kent Cooke Foundation
Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship,
the largest private scholarship for
two-year and community college
transfer students in the country.
Pramschufer, a 2014 May graduate,
was one of 85 finalists selected
from 3,705 applicants representing
737 community colleges to receive
the prestigious scholarship, which
provides as much as $30,000 a year
for up to three years to the nation's
best low-income community college
students seeking to complete a
bachelor's degree at an accredited
college or university.
Scholars were selected based on
high academic ability and achieve-
ments, persistence and financial
need.


Pramschufer has overcome family
hardship and battled financial need
as a homeschool dual-enrolled
student at SCF. When he was 7, his
father died, and a few years ago, his
mother was diagnosed with cancer.
He has cared for his mother and
his family while juggling a job as a
supervisor at Frank Theatres Galleria
and taking college courses at SCF
Venice.
"SCF has been fantastic. What
I like about SCF Venice is that it's
smaller, and you really get to know
people and experience that sense of
community," he said.
At SCF, Pramschufer studied
mathematics and physics in pursuit
of his childhood dream to become a
Walt Disney Imagineer who creates
Disney's rides, attractions and
activities.
He has always loved creativity
and innovation and often created
drawings for TV shows and mov-
ies. Family trips to DisneyWorld


prompted him to research ride
systems and attempt to build them
on his own.
After graduating with an Associate
in Arts degree, Pramschufer plans to
earn a bachelor's degree in me-
chanical engineering from Florida
State University or the University of
Central Florida.
Pramschufer is a member of the
Alpha Mu Upsilon chapter of Phi
Theta Kappa International Honor
Society at SCF Venice. He is involved
in the community as a student
leader for Students Working Against
Tobacco and a volunteer for The
WareHouse ofVenice, a community
organization that provides events,
activities and community involve-
ment opportunities for teens and
young adults.
Pramschufer is a member of Lift
Church in Venice and won a short
sermon contest at a state fine arts
festival competition for Assemblies
of God youth groups.

Mobile health services offered in May


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
COMMUNICATIONS
The Florida
Department of Health
in Sarasota County's
(DOH-Sarasota) Health
In Motion Mobile
Medical Unit staff will
provide free and low-
cost health services
around the county
during May.
According to health
officials, regular services
will be discontinued at
the U.S. Department
of Agriculture Food
Distribution Program at
St. Nathaniel's Episcopal
Church in North Port
due to logistical issues.
However, Health In


Motion staff will main-
tain an active presence
in North Port.
The services offered
include diabetes edu-
cation and screening,
blood pressure tests,
pregnancy testing,
HIV testing, body
mass index (BMI)
measurement, health
education and adult
immunizations.
The human papillo-
mavirus (HPV) vaccine
that offers safe and
effective protection
against certain cancers
is offered at no cost to
those who are 19-26 and
have no insurance.
One dose of the
Tetanus, diphtheria and


pertussis (Tdap) vaccine
is recommended to
replace the regular tet-
anus vaccine for adults
and pregnant women
(for each pregnancy).
It is especially im-
portant in preventing
pertussis or whooping
cough in adults who
care for infants who are
too young to be vacci-
nated. This vaccine is
available to individuals
19-26 years of age who
have no insurance or
who are under-insured.

High school seniors urged


to get free vaccines

FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
HEALTH DEPARTMENT

Local public health
and school officials urge
high school seniors to
get their immunizations
updated for free before
they graduate.
After graduation, the
cost rises to more than
$300.
The vaccines are
available for free at the
Florida Department
of Health in Sarasota
County (DOH-Sarasota)
clinics in Sarasota and
North Port.
All colleges and
universities require proof
of updated vaccines, with
no exclusion for religious
exemptions. Vaccines
are only free while the
student is enrolled in
school or under 19 years
old through the feder-
ally funded Vaccines for
Children (VFC) program.
After high school
graduation, the cost of
vaccines for those who
are no longer eligible for
the VFC program can
exceed $300.
By acting now, families
can save money, meet
college requirements and
avoid the last-minute
rush in the summer.
The recommended
vaccines offer safe and
effective protection
against the most com-
mon and serious forms
of bacterial meningitis,
Tetanus, Diphtheria and
Pertussis (whooping
cough) and Human
Papillomavirus (HPV).
The protection offered
through some vaccines
wanes over time, so
certain vaccines need to
be repeated to maintain


adequate immunity.
When young people are
current on their vaccines,
regardless of whether
they are college-bound,
it reduces the likelihood
throughout their lifetime
that they will acquire
vaccine-preventable
diseases.
High school seniors
who do not plan to at-
tend college may through
their work, hobbies,
personal risk factors,
or as young parents be
at risk for getting or
spreading vaccine-pre-
ventable diseases to
others, including infants
who are too young to be
vaccinated.
These diseases can


result in expensive
hospitalization, lifelong
disabilities and, some-
times, death.
"From a public health
standpoint, the entire
community benefits when
there is greater vaccine
coverage," said DOH-
Sarasota School Health
Supervisor Linda Glover.
"In addition, you'll
save hundreds of dollars
by getting vaccines now
instead of waiting until
after graduation."
Early morning hours
are usually best for
walk-in immunizations.
Parents must accompany
those under 18 years old.
Take along any previous
shot records.


Now Is The Time To Improve
Your Oral Health & Have A
SGreat Smile & New Look!


Immunizations are
available at these loca-
tions (Monday-Friday):
SWilliam L. Little
Health & Human
Services Center, 2200
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
Walk-in services begin
at 7:30 a.m. Call 941-
861-2900 for hours or to
request an appointment.

SPINAL FRACTURE
When a fall, car crash, or sports injury results in a
fracture of one or more parts of the spinal column of
the middle (thoracic) or lower (lumbar) spine,
onlookers should never attempt to move the injured
person. Movement can cause more damage.
Depending on the severity of the fracture, the spinal
cord maybe injured. Thus, it is necessary to properly
immobilize the injured party so he or she may be
safely moved to a hospital. After checking the
patient's vital signs, the doctor will locate the
fractured parts) of the spine, determine the extent of
damage, find out exactly how the vertebrae broke
(fracture pattern), and whether the patient has neural
injury and/or spinal instability.
P.S. Even minor falls or trauma can sometimes
produce a spinal fracture.

Free driving course for young motorists


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Brad Ault usually
doesn't get the right
answer when he asks
a teenager what he
shouldn't do if a tire
blows out while traveling
60 miles per hour.
"You shouldn't apply
your brakes until all of
the air is out of the blown
tire," said Ault, president
of Ault's Driving School,
which helps students
prepare for their license.
"Hard braking may cause
the vehicle to roll over.
Take your foot off of
the accelerator and the
vehicle will slow down on
its own.
"Hold the steering
wheel firmly and slowly
steer the vehicle off of
the roadway. Apply the
brakes after most of the
air is out of the flat tire,
in order to have better


braking capabilities."
Ault is offering a free
summer school driving
course for North Port,
Venice and Riverview
high school students, as
well as those in Charlotte
County schools.
Students also can be in
a GED program, home-
schooled, in a charter or
private school, or taking
courses online.
Students must be 15
years old by the begin-
ning of the class. For the
summer course, students
must complete the
four-hour Drug, Alcohol,
Traffic Education Course;
must possess a learner's
permit; and must turn
off their cellphones or
iPods during instruction,
which includes six hours
of in-car driving and six
hours of observation.
Applications also are
available on the Sarasota
County School Board's


website. The last day to ap-
ply is May 23. Applications
maybe faxed, emailed,
mailed or brought to Ault's,
or turned in at the school
where they were picked
up.
There are about 300
slots available for courses
in Sarasota County.
Completion of the course
potentially can save
the student money on
vehicle insurance.
Young drivers are
taught about avoiding
the many common
mistakes, including mak-
ing wide turns, texting
and other distractions,
tailgating and more.
"We talk to students
about merging into traf-
fic on the interstate and
driving around curves in
the road," Ault said. "In
Florida, the exit ramps
are not banked very well;
neither are curves. If you
don't navigate the curves


well, you can go right off
the road. I knew a driver
who did that, and hit a
tree and killed the girl in
his vehicle."
Ault said drivers also
should learn what to do
if they drop off the edge
of the roadway.
'Again, you shouldn't
pull the wheel quickly to
get back onto the road,"
he said. "Instead you
should slow the car down
to about 15 miles per
hour or less, gently turn
the steering wheel to pull
the wheels back onto the
roadway, and then merge
back into traffic when it's
safe. Turning the wheel
sharply may result in a
vehicle rollover, or the ve-
hicle may go left of center
into oncoming traffic."
Ault said the driving
course is offered free
because a Florida
legislator's daughter died
in a crash years ago. He


later ensured all counties
would have funding for
young driver education.
According to the
website, www.cars.com,
the top 10 mistakes
young drivers make
include being distracted
at the wheel, speeding,
having an overcrowded
car, following too closely,
driving without a seat
belt (which is illegal in
Florida), driving under
the influence, not being
able to handle emer-
gencies while driving,
taking too many risks,
driving drowsy, choosing
the wrong car, and not
properly maintaining
their vehicle.
Ault agrees with most
of the top mishaps young
drivers make, adding some
don't realize they need to
inspect the vehicle to en-
sure the tires are correctly
inflated, or monitor the oil
gauge and check coolant.


INTERESTED?
Orientation will be held
June 3. There will be two driving
sessions. A student may select
one session. The first session
runs June 9 to 26, with the
second session set for July 7
to 24.
Enrollment is on a first-come,
first-served basis. Applications
may be faxed; emailed; mailed;
brought to Ault's -406 N
Indiana Ave., Englewood, FL
34223; or turned in at the
school where they were picked
up.
For more information, call
941-474-5125.
"A common mistake is
drivers don't know where
they are going," he said.
"They don't know where
they are, which causes
them to be distracted
and takes away from
their ability to operate
their vehicle safely."

Philanthropic family helped to build Englewood Y


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Editor's note: The
Englewood YMCA is
celebrating its 20th
anniversary in 2014.
Members of the
Dignam family are no
strangers to generosity.
In 2009, along with
Ann Dever (now de-
ceased),Tom Dignam
founded Kids' Needs
of Greater Englewood,
an organization that
collects and distributes
donations to Englewood
families.
The family's insur-
ance company, the Key
Agency, contributes to
dozens of local organi-
zations, with Tom's son,
David, as the company
president.
And while Dignam
family members can be
found on the boards of
many charitable entities
along the Suncoast, one
of their most notable
contributions is Tom's
involvement in getting
the SKY Family YMCA
built in Englewood.
The family has been
living in the area since
the late '30s, when Tom's
father. George Dignam,
bought 1,000 feet of
beachfront property in
Englewood.
"He used to come
to Englewood to fish,"
Tom said. "There was
no water, no electricity
and no phones. He built
a house out there where
there are now some
condominiums."

Physicians Group.
In recent months,
Sarasota Memorial wel-
comed three new female
physicians -Meghan
Buhler, M.D.; Janet Lewis,
M.D.; and Veronica
Voloshinov, M.D. to
Sarasota Memorial's First
Physician Group.
All are family medicine
specialists providing
primary care in medi-
cally underserved North
Port and South Sarasota
County.

George founded the
Key Agency in 1952,
and Tom joined him in
the business in 1962.
The company, and its
founder, were rooted in
the community and very
involved in serving their
neighbors, as they still
are.
So when the idea of
building a YMCA in
Englewood was being
discussed, Tom was one
of the first on board.
As the fundraising
chairman, his imme-
diate task was finding
some big donors for the
project.
"The nice thing is
that the YMCA has
such a great name,"
Dignam said. "One of
the initial donors was
the guy who owned
Jockey Underwear
(Hal Sommer). He said
he would give us a
million dollars. Warren
(Loranger) said he would
give us $400,000."
Unfortunately,
Sommer was advised
against the donation by
his company accoun-
tant, and had to back out
of his commitment. But
when Loranger heard
what had happened, he
offered to increase his
donation to $1 million.

Sarasota Memorial
also recruited three
female internal medi-
cine specialists to join
Sarasota Memorial's
Hospitalist Group in the
coming weeks Florina
Cimpean, M.D.; Eugenia
Samoilova-Wagoner, D.O.;
and Bhavana Nair, M.D.
Hospitalists do not
practice in an office
setting; rather, they are
physicians who work in
the hospital setting and
specialize in acute, spe-
cialty and surgical care
of hospitalized patients
who do not have their
own physician.

"That gave us the
start to getting the plans
drawn up, and then the
Englewood community
backed us all the way,"
Dignam said. "The
building was built free
and clear."
Dignam's company
donated more than
$5 million to help build
the pool, the gym, the
weight room, and the
building that now houses
the Warren Loranger
branch of the YMCA.
Ground was broken
on the new complex on
April 4, 2003; and by
2005, it was open for
business.

studies that show more
than half of all patient
visits are for primary
care, only 7 percent of
the nation's medical
school graduates are
choosing a primary care
career; most instead
are opting for a growing
number of specialty care
careers.
It is estimated that one
in five Americans today
do not have access to a
primary care doctor due
to a shortage of providers
in their community.
Experts say the shortage
has reached a critical
level due to a combina-
tion of fewer physicians

County transit relocates a pick-up point for veterans


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Area
Transit (SCAT) moved
on May 5 one of the six
pickup points it offers for
veterans' transportation
to Bay Pines Veterans
Affairs Healthcare System
in Bay Pines and James A.
HaleyVeterans' Hospital
in Tampa.
The pickup point at the
closed Bank of America


branch located near the
corner of U.S. Route
301 and 12th Street in
Sarasota is being moved
to North Sarasota Library,
2810 Newtown Blvd.,
Sarasota.
The move is due to the
county's commitment
to providing excellent
customer service to its
veterans. The Bank of
America building no
longer exists, and moving


the pickup location to
North Sarasota Library
will offer veterans a safer
location at which to catch
a SCAT bus, according to
SCAT officials.
The new North Sarasota
Library pickup location
joins five pickups that
SCAT offers to Tampa-
based veteran services:
*Walmart: U.S.
Route 41 and Jacaranda
Boulevard, Venice (SCAT


Transfer Point);
Publix: Nokomis
(parking lot in front of
store);
JCPenny atWestfield
Sarasota, 8201 S. Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota (west side
facing U.S. 41);
Sarasota Pavilion/Gulf
Gate, SCAT Transfer Point
(north side of Old Navy
store);
*Veterans Office, 2200
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota


(subject to space).
Reservations for
SCAT veterans' service
are required; seating is
limited. There is a charge
of $8-$13 depending on
the pick-up point.
To register for veteran
pickup, call SCAT Plus at
941-861-1234, TTY7-1-1
or 1-800-955-8771.
For more information,
call Sarasota County Call

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4AQ7 653 Void 0 J84469862

The bidding:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
12 Pass 14 Pass
3) Pass ?
What call would you make?

A A three-spade bid might work, but
it could also lead to disaster. When
the hands are a misfit, it is usually
right to stop bidding before the
doubling starts. Pass.

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

AAKQ632650 10834985

The bidding:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
146 Pass 16 Pass
2 Pass ?
What call would you make?

A Partner has made a reverse bid,
showing extras 17 points or more.
Your first duty is to show a fifth card
in your major, so bid two spades.
Should partner show no interest in
spades or no trump, your club fit
should be adequate for play in that
strain.

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

4 Q 6 5 3 0 QJ5432461072

The bidding:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 14 2V ?
What call would you make?

A When the auction is competitive,
the most important thing you can do
is show support for partner. Your
assets are meager, but they are worth
a raise. Bid two spades.


Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4 A4 Q 102 0 A75346J643

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

A Partner has at most 14 points, so
game is unlikely. This hand should
play well in no trump, so ignore the
club fit. Pass. A raise in no trump
might strike gold, but it is against the
odds.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

SJ 987 VAKJ943 0 34 A 9

The bidding:

IV Dbl Pass 246

should you. They have you out-
gunned on this one. Pass.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
4 5 ? A86532 Q 7 4 Q 1076

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

A The most important requirement
for overcalling a one no trump
opening is a good suit. This hand
doesn't have one. Pass.

'Making a Difference'
The Plantation Community
Foundation knows small things
make a big difference. That is
why it distributed $100,000 to
37 nonprofits in the area.
The grants pay for music
and theater for students and
scholarships for summer pro-
grams. They fund playground
equipment and cooking classes
for people in the mental health
community. They purchase
copiers and pay for parenting
classes. They provide food for


those in need.
The Foundation raises funds
all year with a home tour,
fashion show, Celebrity Classic
Golf Tournament, The Royal
Ride, raffles and garage sales.
Members contribute to honor
loved ones and celebrate special
days.
Members of the foundation
are kind and generous. They are
led by JudyThuer, president,
and Pete Petrie, chairperson of
the Grant's Committee.
When it comes to heart,
the Plantation Community
Foundation knows theirs beats
for this community.

One of Our Best
The special person of this


week is Bill Millner. This nice
man created a final concert for
the Venice Concert Band second
to none. The evening included
the audience singing "Auld
Lang Syne" with spontaneous
hand-holding and teary eyes.
After an evening of emotions
flying high with favorites like
"Begin the Beguine" and even a
Chopin march dedicated to this
columnist, the audience knew it
had experienced Venice Magic.
Bill Millner is one of the men
who make Venice a great place
to live.
Fran Valencic is the social
columnist for the Venice
Gondolier Sun. She welcomes
your tips and ideas. Contact her
at franvalencic@comcast. net.


Representatives of various 501(c)(3)s were on hand to receive
grants from the Plantation Community Foundation.


Sarah Rideout Slight and Bill Millner acknowledge the musi-
cians and the audience with special thanks at the final Venice
Concert Band Concert at the Venice Community Center.


Kim Kindell, Pete Misiaszek and Mollie Johnson share informa-

DINING OUT NOKOMIS GO


Ophelia's Pasta House serves up delicious breakfasts and more


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
For the past eight years, Ophelia's Pasta House
in Nokomis has been known for its delicious pasta,
seafood and authentic Italian dishes. What may
not have been as well-known, but is becoming
just as popular, are the breakfasts at Ophelia's.
Since Nancy and James Champlin bought the
restaurant from the grandchildren of the original
Ophelia, they have created a family (and dog)
friendly atmosphere at Ophelia's. Over time,
Nancy, along with manager Kimberly Hayward,
created a menu full of freshly made and innovative
selections. It's an expansive bill of fare, and one
that both Champlin and Hayward have vowed to
scale down, but one thing is certain there is
something on it for everyone's taste.
Champlin said that goes for the breakfast
menu, too.
"We have complimentary Bloody Marys
and Mimosas with every meal, and people
love that," she said. "She (Hayward) does
homemade quiche from scratch, breakfast
strata, scones and fresh muffins, and the
granola she makes is fabulous."
At the risk of revealing a trade secret,
Hayward shared her recipe for the
breakfast strata that Champlin said was
the best around.
"First I make my own bread and then basically a
bread pudding,"she said. "Then I add roasted red
peppers, green onions and Parmesan cheese and
I bake it."
Perhaps some of the most surprising things
about the breakfast fare at Ophelia's are the prices
on it. The most expensive items on the morning
menu are the Steak and Eggs, the Lobster Quiche
and the Blackened Shrimp and Grits at $8.99 each.
But most everything else is less than that.
"The most popular thing on our breakfast menu
is the '2-2-2,'" Champlin said. "It's two eggs, two
pieces of bacon and two pancakes for $3.75."
Between the prices and the tasty food,
Ophelia's usually has an especially large breakfast
crowd, especially on Sundays, when the breakfast
hours are extended until 1 p.m. During lunch
and dinner hours, the customers keep coming
for homemade favorites like Chicken Pot Pie and
Calimari Ophelia, while taking advantage of a


$4.99 daily lunch special that includes comfort
foods like meatloaf and shepherd's pie.
The member of the family who may like
Ophelia's most of all will be the Fido in your life.
Champlin is a dog lover and it shows in her prints
on the wall, and especially in her outside 'Doggie
Diner' patio. It's there that pooches can get fresh
water and complimentary snacks like the ones
Hayward makes at her own Barking Mad Bakery.
"A lot of dogs have grain allergies," she said.
"I make a grain-free dog treat with all natural
ingredients, and I use carob instead of chocolate. I
sell them to a lot of local grooming salons."
With about 175 seats, the restaurant has
plenty of space for private parties, and they
will even cater your special event off-site, with
enough notice. Coming up at Ophelia's is a
special Mother's Day menu, with prime rib and

JGO DINING OUT VENICE



Feel the love at Amore's in Venice


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Amore may mean love in Italian, but to Ray
Harmon, who owns Amore's in Venice, the restau-
rant's name takes on an even deeper meaning.
"The last part of Amore is pronounced'ray.'I'm a
loving guy, so, when I was trying to come up with a
name, Amore fit perfectly," he explained with a broad
smile.
Harmon, who as his last name suggests, is not
Italian, learned from the best Italian cooks around.
At 13, he began working as a dishwasher at Monty's,
a well-known Italian Pizzaria in Punta Gorda. After
living with the family for 16 years and working
his way up the ladder, Harmon gained enough
confidence to open his own restaurant at 2357 S.
Tamiami Trail in Venice.
"People couldn't believe how we transformed the
place after my wife and I bought it 13 years ago," said
Harmon, a friendly guy who is constantly searching
for ways to improve his customer service.
"A few years ago we added outdoor, dog-friendly
seating on a deck adjacent to our building.
"Recently we began offering Wednesday specials,
all you can eat pasta dinners that include pasta with
meatballs or meat sauce, soup or salad, and bread
for only $5.95. Now Wednesdays is our busiest day,"
he exclaimed. "Although our Brooklyn-style pizza
and Napolitan-style Italian dishes are really popular,
we add new items to our menu every week. They're
advertised on a chalkboard bythe front door and


include broiled cod, BBQ ribs, and
chicken Parmesan."
Lindsey Harmon, who works
both as a cook and server at her
parents' restaurant, has inherited
her Dad's sense of commitment.
"We want our customers to relax
and enjoytheir dining experience,"
she explained. "We are not a fast
food business, and we're proud
of that. Because our dishes are all
made to order, it may take more time
to prepare them, but we feel that
delicious meals are worth the wait."
To illustrate her point, Lindsey
gestured toward the huge open
kitchen and a giant 50 gallon pot
used to prepare soups or sauces that
simmer for 8 12 hours. Breads and rolls
are baked daily. Regular customer,
Linda Lentini, drops in at least twice
a month for pizza or a meal.
"The garlic knots are to die for,"
she said.
To top off a meal, diners may choose


Amore's made-to-order cannoli or daily
special dessert choices: chocolate mousse cake,
almond pound cake, or turtle cheese cake.
Moderately priced wines are sold bythe glass, bottle,
or carafe.
Amore's is open seven days a week. Sunday and
Monday, hours are from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday


Ray Harmon prepares sauces and soups
daily in a giant 50 gallon pot at Amore's.

GO AT THE THEATER



Tickets on sale for aactWorldFest at Venice Theatre


E'li'C' May7 13,2014


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Theatre troupes from 17 theaters will come from
around the world to Venice Theatre for aactWorld-
Fest June 16-21.
Venice is the only theater in the world to be
asked to host the international conference for a
second time.
The invitation came at the conclusion of the 2010
festival which also was held in Venice, garnering
rave reviews from the participants.
"It's been a wonderful week and perfectly
organized." AACT's then-president, Rod McCullough
said in 2010 as the festival ended, when he
proposed to the board that Venice Theatre host the
festival again.
Festival chairman and Venice Theatre executive/
artistic director Murray Chase expects visitors from


some 40 states, 25 countries, and six continents.
They will present 17 one-hour productions utilizing
the theater's 430-seat main stage auditorium and
its 90-seat Pinkerton Theatre.
Chase predicts an economic impact of $1 million
on the Venice area, including utilization of 700 room
nights, in what otherwise would be a slow season.
There are countless ways to participate in the
event, from hosting and or driving visitors, attending
workshops and performances to socializing with
visitors at some of the several parties that will take
place that week. Aficionados will want to purchase
a full registration package which includes all 17
performances, several workshops and social events.
Other packages are available including a MainStage
Only package as well as tickets to just two or three
of the hour-long performances. AACT festival format
requires hour-long performances with 10-minute
set-up and 10-minute teardowns because of the

AT THE THEATERGO


Catch 'For the Ages'


at Florida Studio Theatre


PROVIDED BY FLORIDA STUDIO THEATRE
Florida Studio Theatre announces its annual
Richard and Betty Burdick New Play Reading Series,
which will present three new plays by contemporary
American playwrights. It's not too late to catch
the series that takes place in the Keating Theatre
on Saturday, May 10 at 2 p.m., and is part of FST's
Sarasota Festival of New Plays. Tickets for the series
are three plays for $25, or individual play readings
for $10. Additionally, Friends of FST can purchase a
subscription for all three plays for $15. They may be
purchased by calling the FST box office at 941-366-
9000 or by visiting www.floridastudiotheatre.org.
This series began April 28 with "Dancing Lessons"
by Mark St. Germain and was followed by Rich Orloff's
"Chatting With The Tea Party."
The final play of the series is"ForThe Ages."What
does it really mean to"get old"? Florida Studio
Theatre and American Records have come together
to create a new playthat examines the good, bad,
difficult, and humorous aspects of aging. Based
on over 100 hours of interviews with Sarasota commu-
nity members, "For The Ages"will serve as a catalyst
for conversation, understanding and social change.
The reading will be followed by a talkback with the
playwright where audience members have the oppor-
tunityto provide feedback. This series gives audiences
the opportunityto be a part of the development and
creation of exciting potential new plays here at FST.
Associate Artist Jason Cannon describes FST's
process of preparation stating,"The Burdick Series
is simply one of the most exciting parts of the New
Play Festival. After digging through literally hundreds

party Now. Call for DetailS.


of new plays each year, we choose three that we
cannot wait to share with our audience. The flurry of
activity required is intense: bringing in playwrights
and actors, rehearsing, rewriting, re-rehearsing,
reading for our eager audience, and then propelling
the development process with talkbacks to benefit
the playwright. But this intensity which serves
our mission, our audience, and the playwrights
- results in excitement and discoveries that are
truly the lifeblood of our theatre. Every play that we
now consider a classic was once new and nervously
awaiting its premiere. The Burdick Series exists to
continue transforming the'new'into'known."
The Sarasota Festival of New Plays seeks to provide
a forum for playwrights of all ages to develop plays
that can be fruitfully produced. From our Young
Playwrights to our emerging adult playwrights and
seasoned play-writing veterans, the Sarasota Festival
of New Plays seeks to broaden the breadth and depth
of thought in American theatre by encouraging
people of all ages and all perspectives to write plays.
New Play Development is the lifeblood of FST. It is a
year-round activity that is fully integrated with each
of the theatre's other programs. FST's approach to
new play development focuses on the continued life
of the work.
Aside from presenting world premieres, FST
frequently provides plays with their second, third or
fourth productions. For example, in the 2009 Sarasota
Festival of New Plays, FST provided"Black Pearl
Sings!"with its third production. "Black Pearl Sings!"
has gone on to many productions, becoming one of
the most produced plays in the country in 2010.

LIVE MUSIC G O


Country Express Band 'just fell into place'


By SUSAN ERWIN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you enjoy the smooth sound of classic
country music, you may already be familiar
with the local group, Country Express Band.
The band consists of five members
and they have been together about
four years: Dan Mlynek (vocals and bass
guitar), Renee Filliez (drums and vocals),
Mike Davey (lead guitar, steel guitar
and vocals), Kelly Brandon (vocals and
booking) and bandleader Fred Brandon
(rythym guitar and vocals). The members
have a history together going back more
than two decades.
The group mainly performs cover
songs, but they do have three originals
written by Mike one of which was
written by Mike's mother.
Fred decided after many years to get
out of the music business. Years later, he
decided he wanted to continue to play
and asked Kelly if she would be interested
in singing with the band.
"I actually have the least experience -
but Fred persuaded me to do it," Kelly said.
"Then we talked our brother-in-law, Dan,
into consider joining he is actually a
keyboard player."
"The group just sort of clicked because
they were all on hiatus for a number of
years and then when they all got back
together... it just fell into place,"Renee
said. "We just kind of all fell right back
into the groove."
Mike started playing guitar when he
was 8 years old.
"I played for 21 years with two different

Express Band.


bands, and then I quitfor about 17 years
and started up again when I met back up
with Fred,";' Mike said.
Fred performed his first show when he
was 10 years old and has playing country
music for over 50-years.
Originally from Ohio, Fred, Renee and


Dan moved to Florida years ago.
Kelly is from Michigan and Mike is from
upstate New York.
Fred thought of the idea to name the
band"Country Express"because of years of
experience with similar named bands.
"I have played in bands called Country


Plus, T-n-T, and the Express Band in Ohio
- and I just figured'Country Express'was
a good name,";' Fred said.
The band has performed as far away
as Orlando and Wachula and will travel
locally by request.
"We all have day jobs, so it's difficult to


travel too far because we stay pretty busy,";'
Kelly said.
"We have a huge local support from
fans as well as co-workers so when we
play it's kind of like gathering together
with friends."
The band also plays regularly at
Southport Square in Port Charlotte, a
senior-care facility, for a couple of hours
on various Sunday afternoons.
"These folks are so wonderful and they
really seem to enjoythe music;',"Kelly said.
Fred added that the fans are of utmost
importance to the band members.
"We're a'people'band we are in the
crowd we play what the guests want
to hear,";' Fred said.
Band members recalled crowd
singalongs at the recent Punta Gorda
Block Party.
"We may not hit every note but we
try we are here to entertain and see
people enjoying the music,";' Kelly said.
Country Express is currently working on
recording a CD.
Upcoming events include:
A performance is scheduled on May
17 at 6 p.m. at Englewood Moose Lodge,
located at 55 Dearborn St., in Englewood.
Membership not required.
A performance on May 18 at 2 p.m. at

POSTAL FOOD DRIVE THIS SATURDAY, MAY 10
Saturday, May 10 marks the 22nd anniversary of America's largest-single day of giving the
National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive in Partnership with the U.S. Postal
Service, Campbell Soup, Feeding America and other partners.
Currently, 49 million Americans 1 in 6 are unsure where their next meal is coming from.
Sixteen million are children who feel hunger's impact on their overall health and abilityto perform in
school. And nearly 5 million seniors over age 60 are food insecure, with many who live on fixed incomes
often too embarrassed to ask for help.
The food drive's timing is crucial. Food banks and pantries often receive the majority of their
donations during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons. By springtime, many pantries are
depleted, entering the summer low on supplies at a time when many school breakfast and lunch
programs are not available to children in need.

How the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive works:
Just leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag by the mailbox on Saturday, May 10, and the
Postal carrier will do the rest. It's that simple and millions of Americans will be helped.

made her day.

Maybe she prefers a nice dinner out? Or
a relaxing massage? Mothers come in all
ages, styles and types. Have you decided
how you will honor your mother this

What it's like to be a mother


Editor's note: Top winner Kim Campanella
shares with us what being a mother is like
for her exclusively for this Mother's Day
edition of Let's Go!

I refer to my family as the" A family,"
which stands for Adoption. You see,
family for us has been created in a very
unique, but not in a less significant way
then most families are created. We call
ourselves the A family because we were
all united by the blessing of adoption. My
husband, myself, my daughter were all
adopted. We will soon be adopting our
3-year-old foster child. Ironically enough
- their names are Alyssa and Alexis -
again, both beginning with an A. They are
admired and adored.


My daughter that is pictured here came
into our lives at 4-months-old but she
came into our hearts since the moment
she was born. Like they say, "Not born in
my tummy, but born in my heart!'
Ironically, there isn't a day that goes
by that a person doesn't come up to me
and remark on how much she looks like
me. I smile and nod, then realize, there
is no such thing as coincidence. Yes, she
was made for me, and I for her. Somehow,
although I didn't realize it at the time, I
have been waiting for her, all of my life.
She has given me a gift that I will
be unable to pay back. She allowed me
the privileged and the opportunity to
become a mom. As I watch her develop
into the strong, beautiful, and confident


being, I look at her in
amazement. Not only --. ....... .
... / :,. .... ... ... ::.... -:. :. i
do we sharejust
outward appear- -
ances, but she has
adapted the same
mannerisms and
personality. I am
anxious to share
with her the story of .._
how we became the A -
family of how she is
my heartbeat, and my love.
As I sit back and reflect on my
fifth Mother's Day, I have come to the
conclusion, I am the luckiest mom around.
Kim Campanella,
Mom of The A family

stomach,
but always
in my heart,";'

Campanella of her daughter Alexis.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine
3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each
row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will
appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The
more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Cue-bids can have several
meanings, depending on the context.
They are especially useful in slam
bidding on hands where Blackwood
isn't helpful, as when one partner has


a void suit. Today's hand features a
bevy of them.
North's first cue-bid of three
spades merely showed a heart fit in a
hand that was too good for a simple
four-heart raise. All of the other cue-
bids were control-showing bids in an
effort to reach six hearts. The auction
took a surprising turn when North
was able to cue-bid clubs twice.
East's doubles suggested great
strength in clubs, so South reasoned
that North held either a void in clubs
or a singleton ace. South took a bit of
a gamble when he leaped to the grand
slam, but his gamble was rewarded
when the dummy came down.
North's extra trump length made up
for any high cards that were missing.
The play was simple. South ruffed
the opening club lead in dummy and
led a trump to his ace. Another club
was ruffed on the table, followed by
the ace and king of diamonds. South
claimed the balance on a cross-ruff.
Well bid!

There's no shortcut to

deal with belly fat


DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am an old man (84) with
a middle-age paunch
(5 feet, 7 inches tall
and weigh 200 pounds)
who needs to fit into a
suit with pants an inch
too tight in time for a
wedding in a few weeks.
About how many pounds
do I need to lose to fit
into them? Is there any
formula for converting
waist inches to pounds?
And are there exercises
or other means to focus
the weight loss on belly
fat? Anon.
ANSWER: I am afraid
there's no formula.
Further, I have to tell you
that weight doesn't always
come off where we want
it to, and specific exercis-
es aren't going to make
the fat come off in those
locations.
The good news is
that for most people,
especially men, the first
10 pounds or so to come
off usually comes from
the middle. The fat in
the momentum (an apron-
shaped structure inside
the abdomen) is metabol-
ically active and often is
the first place where fat is
gained or lost. Moreover,
that fat is the most likely
to increase risk of heart
disease. So losing weight
around your middle is a
good way of improving
overall health, especially
if you have more inches
there than you'd like.
I often have seen
people start a healthy diet
and exercise program and
find that the waist size
decreases but the weight
stays the same. That may
be because muscle is
much heavier than fat,
and the increase in mus-
cle mass makes up for the
loss of fat. More muscle
is good for you; less body
fat is good for you. Weight
is an imperfect measure.
Liposuction can remove
fat from around your
waist, but a healthy diet
and regular exercise will
make you feel better and
quite possibly live longer.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I
was a smoker for 65 years,
and I got tired of my
doctor and everyone else


'
Dr. Roach

telling me the dangers of
smoking. I tried e-ciga-
rettes about two months
ago, and I am hooked on
them. At first I didn't like
the taste, but now I have
gotten used to it. There is
a large amount of "smoke"
from them, and it is
darkening the color of my
teeth. What's your take on
this new fad? S.G.
ANSWER: There is no
doubt that tobacco has
caused vast amounts of
suffering and death. The
jury is out on the net
effect of e-cigarettes, but
here are my thoughts.
Although e-cigarettes
are likely to be much less
dangerous than regular
cigarettes, there is no
doubt in my mind that
they are at least potential-
ly harmful to health. On
the good side, if they help
you quit your smoking
habit, they may have a
benefit to you. You should
use them to help you quit
smoking, then ideally quit
using them as well.
However, there is a bad
side, and that is when
nonsmokers start using
them. Some users don't
think of them as ciga-
rettes at all, calling them
"hookah pens," "vape
pens" or other euphe-
misms. They are simply
devices to provide nico-
tine and flavorings. You
used the term "hooked on
them," and they probably
do have the potential for
addiction.
Many young people
have strong negative feel-
ings about cigarettes that
don't transfer to these
new nicotine products.
My main concern is that
they will make using
nicotine more socially
acceptable.
Dr. Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column when-

Does this cheese break the mold?


Dear Heloise: Most
cheese, even when stored
in the refrigerator, will be-
gin to mold after a while.
However, the Parmesan
cheese in the shaker-type
container, no matter how
long it is kept, seems nev-
er to develop mold. Does
it ever develop mold and
it just can't be seen, or
does it simply not mold?
How long should one
keep this cheese for safe
consumption? -Ray M.,
via email
Here's what I found,
after calling the manu-
facturer. The cheese will
show mold eventually,
even if kept under the
best refrigerated condi-
tions. So, make sure to
consume the cheese prior
to or within three months
after the "BestWhen
Purchased By" date that is
stamped on the bottom of
the container. Heloise
PS.: I write the date
that I open the container
on the bottom in black
marker. This way, I know
when several months
have passed and I need to
purchase new cheese.

Shopping hint
Dear Heloise: I save
my grocery-store receipt
until the next time I go
shopping. I use a magnet
to stick it on the side of
my refrigerator. This is
handy, because I can
look at the receipt to see
what foods I bought as a
reminder that I need to
use things before they go
bad. Also, if I come across

Drying sponges
Dear Heloise: I've
tried the various "sponge
dishes," etc., that are
commercially available
and have yet to find one
that doesn't collect soap
scum or leave my sponge
smelling of mildew.
To solve the dilemma,
I cut vertically into the
open end of a plastic, net
vegetable bag (potatoes
and Brussels sprouts, for
example, come in these). I
make the cut long enough
that I can tie a knot with
the two sides and still
have a 4-inch opening. I
have a heavyweight soap
dispenser sitting on the
edge of my sink. I tie the
net bag around the neck
of the soap dispenser
so that it hangs into the
sink without touching it.
I slip my sponge into the
open slit of the bag, and
it hangs in the sink. The
sponge dries quickly after
each use. Margaret B.,

'Twerking' isn't dangerous,

just the latest dance fad


DEAR ABBY: I'm the
happily married mother
of two teenage boys. The
other day I overheard my
older son (age 17) talking
with a friend about
"twerking." I have never
heard of it and now I'm
worried. Is twerking a
drug term? Is it similar to
"tripping," "getting high"
or "catfishing"?
My 17-year-old is
supposed to go to
Princeton next year on a
sports scholarship, and
I'm afraid "twerking" will
derail him from his chart-
ed path. Thank you for
any advice you may have.
-TROUBLED MOM IN
CONNECTICUT
DEAR MOM: Don't pan-
ic. "Tripping" and "getting
high," as you already
know, refer to altered
states of consciousness as
the result of using drugs.
"Catfishing" is something
else. It's pretending to
be someone you aren't,
creating a false identity
on social media, usually
to pursue a deceptive
online romance.
The "twerking" your
son was referring to is
a dance move recently
made famous by Miley
Cyrus in which the
dancer (usually female)
gyrates in a provocative,
semi-squatting position
that involves thrusting
hip movements.
DEAR ABBY: My
husband and I are not
big fans of his best
friend's wife. "Aracely" is
extremely ill-mannered.
She never says thank
you, didn't even write
thank-you notes for
their wedding and baby
showers, and when we're
at a restaurant will loudly
announce that the food
was "disgusting."
Aracely claims our
baby "cries too much."
She arrived at my son's
second birthday party
with a hangover and so
much more. She claims
she doesn't observe our
"Southern ways" because
she comes from South
America and has been in
the United States for only
eight years.
We keep our interac-
tions with her limited,
but do not cut her off


Dear Abby

completely because
my husband values his
friendship with her hus-
band. I told my husband
I'm considering giving her
an etiquette book, but he
said it would be rude. I
disagree. I think it would
nullify Aracely's argument
that she doesn't under-
stand our "Southern"
manners. Do you agree
that it would be rude? -
MANNERED SOUTHERN
GAL
DEAR SOUTHERN
GAL: Sorry, but I do agree,
because the gift would
be given with malicious
intent, and I'm pretty sure
that while Aracely lacks
polish, she isn't stupid.
Her problem isn't that
she doesn't understand
good manners because
she's from South America.
I have met individuals
from South America who
are educated, cultured
and whose manners
are refined. Obviously,
Aracely does not come
from this kind of
background.
Only if you could pull
it off without sounding
catty, the next time she
hauls out the excuse for
her deplorable manners,
you might "offer" to buy
her an etiquette book "so
she can learn the ways
of her adopted country"
- but don't expect her to
take you up on it.
DEAR ABBY: Would it
be appropriate to send
my future mother-in-law
a Mother's Day card? I feel
it would be a nice gesture
to help start the relation-
ship between us. NICK
IN OMAHA
DEAR NICK: I concur.
In fact, I suspect it will
melt her heart to know
you feel that way about
her, even before you
marry her daughter.


"And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen,
and Igo to prove them: I pray thee have me excused."
Luke 14:19.
How many excuses will you continue to make to
God? Set them aside once and for all and follow Him.

I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March21-April19). You'd rather not have to
tellyour story. You'd rather gatherallofthe informa-
tion you need and more by listening to others. But
you have to tell at least a little.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Get resolution, even
if you know that the problem is all in your head.
It's important to get a handle on mental friction,
because it still detracts from everything you do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Unless you area
therapist or a customer service agent, avoid letting
people air their grievances and problems to you.


There's no time to waste now as you busy yourself
with building a better future.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've modeled yourself
after someoneyou admire, and nowyou'll see the
first signs of success. Now that the likeness is being
achieved, the next step is to share.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).The situation at work will be
new, unpredictable and potentially tricky. Whether
you've done it before is irrelevant. Believe in your-
self, and you'll do fine or even better than fine.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Listen to what people
give you in conversation. Perhaps what they men-


tion isn't deliberate, but there is still an underlying
reason for it. Doors will open for the good listener.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will make offers
to you all day long. Some you'll accept; some you


By not answering every request, you will tal
control of a relationship.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Being discipliirl i,
one aspect of your life proves that it is possi 'i,. -r


won't. It's not personal.You'rejust responding to you to be disciplined in the other areas. Adlr.-
what interests you.You'll make an offer, too. weakness, and take a step toward turning ,1 .ur,,,
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You'll meet a few new AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).There is quit, 11iii
people and should take an easy, laid-back approach, busywork to handle, but don't let the surf. ITv.
It would be a mistake to focus too much on getting stuff take up your whole day. Take the time .i
a result from each interaction, into what really matters to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be more PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Naturally, you, ri
aware ofyour choices in how to respond to others, blame people for their wealth and attracti.r- .
