Erb John G. LienhopThomas J. Peacock Louis C Rall Jr. Good morning, Gondolier Sun subscriber Marion Dillon INDIANS NOW RANKED 25TH IN FLORIDAPage 14A October 1-3, 2014 Vol. 69 No. 45 An Edition of the Sun Think sunshine. Thats the mantra at Sarasota County Emergency Management. The department has been tracking 133 rain gauges in the state. Of those, seven are currently showing at ood stage and most of those are in our region, according to the EM website. So far, Venice has managed without incident. John Veneziano, director of public works in Venice, reported nothing out of the ordinary. Certain areas are prone to street ooding, Veneziano said, but they seem to drain pretty quickly. City Stormwater Engineer James Clinch said he had several calls about spot ooding. Nothing extraordinary to report, Clinch said. No road closures. No structures under water. Just a few calls a pool deck under water, saturated ground a gentleman worried about water getting into his garage. We fared fairly well. All eyes in Venice are now on the county beach monitoring program. Its rainfalls like the one Venice is currently experiencing that ushes out the stormwater retention infrastructure, and the bacteria it harbors, occasionally leading to beach closures. City maintenance crews were busy cleaning the beach outfalls, this week. They dug sand from an outfall near the pier. Elsewhere, all looked well, Clinch reported. We regularly monitor the outfalls at this time of year. Well be closely watching the beach samples this week, Clinch said. The city of North Port issued a Code Red message to residents on Sunday, Sept. 28, concerned with river flooding in the northeast portion of the city. The message: Streets adjacent to the Myakkahatchee Creek are experiencing minor to moderate flooding. Public Works is closely watching the water levels and will place additional high water or street closure signs as necessary. Residents are urged not to drive through moving water or water greater than six inches deep. Northeast of Venice, authorities closed the Myakka River State Park on Sunday. The river surpassed its flood stage of 7 feet, putting trails, picnic areas, and parking lots underwater. The National Weather Service has a Flood Warning for the Myakka River at the state park until further notice. As of Tuesday morning the river had reached 9.13 feet, considered a moderate ood stage. Sarasota County EM left this message on its Facebook page Tuesday: Depending on the amount of rain we receive in the next few days, the river should level out and begin to recede this weekend. Think sunshine.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comFocus turns from rain to beach samplesBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR SARASOTA COUNTY WEB PHOTOSarasota County Emergency Management is predicting the rains will slow down and ood waters will recede this weekend. BEACH SAMPLESTypically, when the beach sampling shows contamination, it is blamed on heavy rains washing the contaminates out of yards and roads. With so many priorities in her life, Linda Bonwill remains the mother of the family as she pre pares for what she hopes will be her second opportunity to claim the World Food Championships (WFC) title. Her plans are to compete again in the 2014 championship being held on famed Fremont Street in North Las Vegas. The week-long event is expected to attract more than 25,000 visitors who will watch sev eral hundred competitors from around the globe preparing their own choice dishes from personal recipes. National and international chefs representing top restaurants compete alongside home cooks for prizes totaling several thousand dollars. With her husband, Mike Bonwill, she recently opened Pro Marine at 900 North Tamiami Trail in Nokomis. She handles the ofce administration while he manages and operates the store. Growing up in East Haven, Conn., her interest in cooking began at 16 when she started making chocolate candies at home for family and friends. From that small beginning, she has created a full-edged candy business. Graduating college, she became a Realtor. Being raised in a predominantly Italian community, she always cooked as a housewife and mother. Her family shared her interest in cooking, spending quality time in her kitchen where everything was Champ Cook ReadyBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTOS PROVIDED(From the left) Linda Bonwill receives her World Food Championships $10,000 check from Adam Richman, of Man vs. Food with Troy Black and CEO of World Food Championships Mike McCloud. The dish that won Linda Bonwill rst place and $10,000 was sponsored by Philadelphia Cream Cheese and was a creamy broccoli soup.National title holder at it againCHAMP | 7 A Venice city council member hands a position paper to another council member at a social function a day prior to a regular meeting where the issue of re department consolidation is expected to come up. Sunshine Law violation? I can defend it, but it could be construed either way, said City Attorney David Persson. In trying to be transparent, if there is any question about it, you do it over. With that, council has agreed to hold a cure meeting to re-discuss the matter. This is done to err on the side of caution in case anyone contends the previous meetings vote was not proper. The issue came up at a budget workshop on Aug. 29 during a discussion on whether to support a feasibility study on re department consolidation with the county. Council Member Jeanette Gates was out of town, leaving only Mayor John Holic and Council Member Bob Daniels in favor of moving forward with the issue. That might have been the end of the discussion until Sunshine concern means 2nd meeting for City CouncilBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORSUNSHINE | 6 The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce team is nalizing preparations for the 27th annual Consumer Expo, taking place at the Venice Community Center, 321 S.

There are some disturbing facts, one of which is that there are more tumors in the sh being caught, there are more impacts, and theres basically a black mat of oils and chemicals at the bottom of the Gulf that continues to exist, Charlotte County Commissioner Chris Constance said. Constance serves as Charlottes representative on a Florida Association of Counties consortium of 23 Gulf Coast counties to meet requirements of BPs settlement through the federal RESTORE Act. The group is also developing a state expenditure plan for economic and environmental recovery of the Gulf Coast. Constance invited William Hogarth, director of the University of South Floridas Florida Institute of Oceanography, to make a presentation to the County Commission this week. Some people like to think (the Deep Horizon spill) is over and done with, Deepwater Horizon impacts still persist in GulfBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERGULF | 7 VENICE ,.1Gono ier SLOCAL NEWS COVER TO COVER FLORIDA'S NO.1 WEEKLY NEWSPAPERWHENFLOODEDTURN AROUNDDON'TDROWN1 1, ^ Y t10.000 ..0rw7 05252 10075 0

6A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014 a curious conversation took place at the dais that revealed a position paper had been exchanged among council members, something generally frowned upon. The position paper, penned by Kit McKeon as a point-counterpoint response to Council Member Bob Daniels ear lier Gondolier Sun column supporting consolidation, was given to Council Member Emilio Carlesimo on Aug. 28 by McKeon after they ran into each other at a Triangle Inn archives exhibit opening. McKeon distributed the document to council the next day at a budget workshop on Aug. 29, but not before Carlesimo divulged hed already read it. Heres how the conversation went: Holic had already given up on the issue, saying it was clear the majority on council had already made up their minds. Council Member Emilio Carlesimo objected to Holics framing of the debate. I think the characterization of (us) not wanting to look at the facts (on re consolidation) is an inaccurate characterization, said Carlesimo. An accurate characterization is looking at this from, in my opinion, the majority position. Im looking at Mr. McKeons document (in support of consolidation) here, too. But the document hadnt been distributed at that point. I was not allowed to bring this out before because of Sunshine Law and recommendation by the city attorney, McKeon explained a few minutes later. Otherwise, I would have posted it or sent it to the newspaper. I think quite frankly the statements that were made (by Council Member Bob Daniels in an earlier Gondolier column) were misleading. So what Ive done is gone through and stated what I think is a more realistic interpretation of those facts. When Gates returned to Florida, she listened to the audio recording of the meeting and said she believed a Sunshine violation may have taken place. She expressed concern to the city manager and city attorney, who agreed a cure meeting was appropriate. I look at this as I just saved the city from another Sunshine lawsuit, Gates said yesterday. At the Sept. 9 council meeting, City Attorney David Persson addressed the potential violation. I see the issue, Persson said. The problem is the law doesnt separate inadvertent issues from vertent issues. (Audible laughter.) So in an abundance of caution and since the city is trying to be the poster child now for making sure everything is done completely in accordance with the Sunshine law, Im going to recommend you put this on (a future) agenda. If any problem exists, this would cure any problem that did exist. There was no objection. The cure meeting has yet to be scheduled because Council Member Jim Bennett, who attended the original Aug. 29 workshop, is still on leave. Im in full support of doing whatever it takes to do it correctly, McKeon said. Later, McKeon said he wouldnt have handed Carlesimo the document if he had it to do over again. I gave it to Mr. Carlesimo. We didnt talk about it. If we had talked about it, it would have been a Sunshine violation. You get so close (to a violation) and dont even realize it sometimes, he said. It isnt the rst time that distributing a position paper has gotten the city into hot water. Previous city attorney, Bob Anderson, counseled the board not to write them at all, period, after the city was sued. In Lorenzo v. city of Venice (2008), a widely cited Sunshine lawsuit, the city admitted to Sunshine and Public Records law violations. A stipulation in the settlement agreement was to, among other things, conduct annual training including, but not limited to, discouragement of the use of position papers. You can do them, Persson said, as long as you are the rst one to do it. But if you send it out, no one can respond. It puts the other six council members in a box. If they respond, then it is a dialog outside the connes of a noticed meeting. I agree, you shouldnt do them. The best place (to exchange positions) is at a meeting.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comSUNSHINEFROM PAGE 1 487045 A Showcase Of The Areas BEST Businesses Chosen By Our Readers 487607 236 Tamiami Trail S Venice, FL 34285 www.EricsPainting.net Thank You Venice For Voting Us #1 Again!

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A oriented around teaching them the origins of food. She took an online cooking course but never completed it because they moved to Englewood in 2005. She purchased a small sub shop, ran it for three years, then sold it when the economy tanked. She joined her husband in his business, ProMarine Repairs of Englewood. At home she continued making the candies, selling them through her website, LindasChocolate.com. Her interest in cooking continued, and seeing all the cooking competitions on the Internet, she decided to give it a shot, submitting a recipe. Someone wanted my recipe to publish in their book, she said. I did not get any money, but I was so ecstatic and happy. It grew from that. She entered little contests with prizes from $100 to $5,000 and even won groceries for a year. Food manufacturers operate these contests, promoting their products that have to be used in a recipe. They become owners of winning recipes, choosing to post it on their website or use it marketing their products. I won the Mushroom Council recipe contest, just one of many like the beef or pork councils, Bonwill said. Then I entered the Mrs. Dash Spice Seasoning contest. Most competitions start at the regional level with a small number entrants qualifying to have a cook-off, and the winner going on to the national competition. Growing in numbers every year, professional home cooks are hooking up with companies sponsoring the major competitions or councils. For 2014, there are 14 judg ing categories at the World Food Championships. The rst Worlds Food Championships in 2012 took place at Ballys Casino with entrants primarily from the U.S. and Canada. Bonwill found Just A Pinch, an online recipe club seeking to get recognition for its products. It selected her side dish, a Cobb potato salad recipe. Companies select from the hundreds of recipes, inviting the entrants to make up the dish from which they select grand prize and second-place winners. Bonwill was the grand-prize winner and was paid to y to and compete at the WFC in Las Vegas. Among 450 home and professional chefs at the event, she competed against 50 in the side dish category in a tented cook station at Ballys. Before starting, she shopped for the ingredients and had a mid-afternoon 2.5 hours slot to complete the dish. Making the cut to the top 10, in the evening she cooked her dishes again outside in the dark. Her recipe was unique and appealed to the judges for whom she made a presentation dish and individual small dishes for all 10 to sample. Her second dish for sponsor Philadelphia Cream Cheese was a creamy broccoli soup and it proved popular. On the main stage at 9:30 p.m. in Ballys Theater, she was awarded rst place, with her second dish in the top 10. For the rst round she won $1,000, and in the second round she collected a check for $10,000, presented by Adam Richman, from Man vs. Food, with Troy Black and Mike McCloud, CEO of the World Food Championships. A top nalist, she moved to the next round at Caesars Palace Casino, taking fth place competing with big time specialist chefs from Ballys restaurant and other famous locations. In 2014, she has already won contests and qualied in the bacon category to attend the WFC, but does not have a sponsor. Her long-term ambition is to work with local manufacturers creating recipes for their products. My family are very good, she said. I do not have to test them. When I put it in front of them, they just eat it. I run the ofce of the Nokomis store, but I am not there much because of my food commitments creating recipes and my candy business. She is on Facebook at WorldClassCooking and her blog is at WorldClassCooking. blogspot.com.CHAMPFROM PAGE 1 and we dont have to worry about it anymore but its not, Hogarth said. Things are still happening in the Gulf. A barrel of crude oil equates to 42 gallons. While 75 percent of the 4.9 million barrels spilled is accounted for either burned away, skimmed, chemically or naturally dispersed, evaporated or dissolved 25 percent of the residual oil remains unaccounted for, Hogarth said. He also noted how tar balls were still turning up along Florida Panhandle beaches. Various sh species have developed lesions and ulcers resulting from the spill. At Tuesdays meeting, Hogarth showed photos of a red snapper, southern hake and a tilesh with those lesions. No seafood with contamination was allowed to go onto the market, Hogarth said. The seafood you now see from the Gulf of Mexico is safe to eat. Scientists determined there was a drop in the number of younger sh in the wake of oil spill, Hogarth said. We hope its improving, he said. We still have two to three-year class missing from the red snapper population. A peer-reviewed study on the Proceeding of National Academy of Sciences (PNAC) website at www. pnas.org discovered that polycyclic armomatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from the spill affected the hearts of developing sh, especially pelagic species open sea species such as tuna, sailsh and marlins, dolphins, mackerels and kingsh, and cobia. Gulf pelagic species produce small, fragile buoyant embryos that develop relatively rapidly, the study stated. Both Hogarth and the PNAS study noted how impacts to Alaska sh species were apparent for decades after the Exxon Valdes spill in 1989. More than 4,000 offshore wells are now operating along the Gulf west from Alabama to Texas. The Deepwater Horizon well was drilled at a depth of 5,000 feet in the Gulf. Hogarth showed commissioners illustrations how oil companies are now drilling even deeper wells, ultra-deep wells at depths of 10,000 feet or more. While its expensive to drill, Hogarth said, more than 500 million barrels annually are pumped from the Gulf. And while no offshore drilling is now allowed off Florida, thats no reason to feel safe, according to Hogarth.

BUSINESS MATTERSCONTACT US ROGER BUTTON BUSINEWS COLUMNIST RogerButton@verizon.net SUN NEWSPAPERS 8A WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2014Two market studies of assisted-living and memory care services have been done to evaluate the need for a northern location in Venice. The rst, undertaken three years ago, showed a big potential need; the second, this year, showed the need has exploded. Both revealed the demand by the aging population of Venice, and baby boomers coming to the area are the driving market as they bring or will relocate a parent. In the latest market study, we looked at the seven mile radius of Venetia Bay Boulevard at the northern gateway to the city determining there are more than 22,000 people 75 years and older, said Ed Taylor, president of Equity Investment Properties. The area is from South Venice to Osprey. On behalf of investors, he announced plans for Tuscan Gardens of Venetia Bay, a unique concept for senior living and care. It would be located at 841 Venetia Bay Blvd., across from Patriots Park on 6.3 acres, with a single-story memory care center and a three-story assisted-living center. Projected to cost $33 million, the 130,000-square-foot building would take 15 months to complete. They will hire 140 people and anticipate a matrix of 250 people providing ancillary services, gener ating labor and salaries of around $5 million annually. This facility, when built, is going to generate a $15 million to $20 million economic impact, Taylor said. From all the services we buy and all the salaries, that amount is going back into the local community. It will be a community with a 60-unit secure memory support center attached to the common core services and, to the right, an 80-unit, three-story assistedliving complex of oneand two-bedroom apartments. The common core will provide services, meals from the Tuscan kitchen, a living room and ofce administration. One of the largest management companies of senior housing in the U.S., Life Care Services will operate and manage Tuscan Gardens at Venetia Bay. Assuming permitting is approved, Core Construction of Orlando will build the $20 million project. Construction will take 15 months and start in January, followed by licensure. Pre-marketing could begin in the fall of this year with the doors opening in the spring of 2016. Not every facility in Venice offers a memory care unit, and those doing so have very few vacancies, Taylor said. Some may take a patient with mild dementia, but needing a secure unit, local families often have loved ones in Sarasota. There will be no threat of wandering away from the memory care units as residents have no individual exterior exits. They participate in a series of neighborhoods that provide access throughout and to the internal, central enclosed memory garden. All services will operate on a monthly fee driven by level of care needed and provided. There will be three meals daily, and all services together with health care are delivered. Nurses will be on-site 24 hours daily. Transportation to doctors and social outings will be provided, together with a life enrichment enter tainment program. Next week, Taylor presents the project to the Venice Planning Commission for approval. He said it has been extremely well-received by the city and the medical and business communities. Already, we are having overtures from medical interests for adjoining properties, Taylor said. In the area are a heart and vascular center and the walk-in health center, so this senior health care community will be a major asset to develop to this approach to Venice. There is a possibility of using the former Caf Italia building, subdividing it for medical, and even a small caf to serve the Hampton Hotel guests. Plans were approved in 2005 for a three-story condominium project but when the economy collapsed, it was dropped.Memory care and assisted-living center plannedBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST ARTISTS RENDERING PROVIDEDThis artists rendering show what Tuscan Gardens of Venetia Bay will look like (at top of rendering) and also shows where it will be located (Patriots Park is the pond area at the bottom).

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A The Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce has arrested two Tampa men who drove to Venice to use cloned credit cards at area Publix stores. On Tuesday, Sept. 30, the manager of the Jacaranda Boulevard location reported that a man tried to buy four gift cards but had to go through multiple credit cards before he found an active one. The last four digits on the card did not match the last four on the receipt. The manager provided a description of the suspect and a partial tag number for the van he got into, and called to alert the store at Jacaranda and U.S. 41. Deputies also responded to that location and found the suspect and the driver in the parking lot. After identifying the suspect as Jerome Stubbs, deputies learned he had a Hillsborough County warrant and determined the 14 credit cards in his possession were counterfeit. Driver Kelson Clemont gave deputies permission to search his van and they found a hand-held skimming device, an American Express card with Master Card track data on the magnetic strip and a rearm concealed between the drivers seat and center console. Stubbs is charged with trafcking in counter feit credit cards and Clement is charged with possession of a cloned credit card, possession of a credit card skimming device and possession of a rearm during the commission of a felony. Dump truck collides with FHPA tire blowout caused a three-vehicle accident Monday afternoon during a driving rain on Interstate 75. According to a report by the Florida Highway Patrol, only the driver of a dump truck, whose tire sustained a blowout, suffered minor injuries. The north-bound truck, driven by Brenda Carney, 54, of Bradenton, veered into a vehicle driven by Francis Livingston, 82, of Punta Gorda, who in turn struck a marked FHP patrol car in the left lane being driven by Kenneth Watson, 44, of Venice. The dump truck, which began in the right lane, veered all the way left, also hitting the patrol car before striking a guardrail and overturning, spilling its load onto the interstate. The truck came to rest on the inside shoulder, closing the road for hours. The crash occurred at mile marker 191 around 4:30 p.m.64 lbs of Rx turned inCitizens turned in 64 pounds of prescription medication to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce during the Drug Enforcement Administration National Take-Back Day. This brings the amount of pharmaceutical drugs turned in to the agency to 6,851 pounds of pills since the start of Operation Medicine Cabinet in 2009. This year alone, over 1,300 pounds have been collected at sheriffs ofce locations. The Sheriffs Ofce has a permanent drop box at the south county ofce, 4531 State Road 776, Venice, where the hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.A slap at the wheelA woman was arrested for domestic battery after she bit her boyfriend. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: Angela Silva, 34, was intoxicated and arguing with her boyfriend, who was driving a vehicle at the time. When he pulled over, she bit him on his thigh, and slapped him on the face. Silva, 3000 block of Concord Road, Venice, was arrested Sept. 29. Bond was not available.Transient arrested for domestic batteryA transient in Nokomis was arrested after he allegedly slapped and choked his girlfriend. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: Michael Henderson, 25, and the woman got into an argument Sunday, Sept. 28, around dinner time, when he pulled her to the ground and started to choke her. The victim said she did not know what started the argument. Police say alcohol was not involved. Henderson was arrested and charged with domestic battery. Bond was not available.Beach-goers call for coverA Venice man was arrested Friday evening, Sept. 26, for exposing himself at Caspersen Beach. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce report: Robert Marsden, 55, was standing on the boardwalk naked when deputies approached him. He quickly pulled his shorts up and began walking away from the approaching ofcer. When asked what he was doing, Marsden made up several excuses. Two victims said he was walking around in public view completely naked, and stood at the end of the boardwalk as if to make sure everyone on the beach saw him.

Bond was set at $500.Sex Offender RegistrationThe Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce is advising the public that Raymond Toni Delmoral, 24, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.

Lic# 14016 MM14015 Scoliosis is a lateral and rotational curvature in the midto lowback regions of the spine that may begin in infancy, the juvenile years, or during adolescence. If allowed to progress, scoliosis can cause the ribs to crowd together on one side while ribs on the opposite side separate widely. The curvature may force the spaces between the spinal discs to narrow and the vertebrae to thicken along the outer edges of the curve. In a minority of cases, the cause can be traced to habitually poor posture or leg-length discrepancy; however, most cases are considered to be genetic in origin. Regardless, the chiropractor offers a far more comprehensive assessment of youngsters spine health than schools usually provide. P.S. For more severe forms of scoliosis, surgical correction may be necessary.

OUR VIEWTake a well-structured approach to SpringsNow that the city of North Port is assuming full ownership of Warm Mineral Springs, theres an immediate question what next? and another that will prove more signicant what about 10 years from now? First question rst: The North Port City Commission intends to contract with concessionaire National and State Parks to operate the facility. Good. A years contract seems appropriate. Add the possibility of another year. Just keep the Springs open for swimming while taking a deliberate approach. Theres no great need to rush. While there are impending issues involving building upgrades and sewage disposal, the long-range plan must be done right in order to reach consensus. Participants at a recent Roundtable discussion at the North Port Sun generally agreed on broad underly ing guidelines. These really havent changed since the Springs was bought in a city-Sarasota County partnership in 2010. They are: Preservation and protection of a unique natural resource. Guaranteeing public access at a reasonable price. Developing Warm Mineral Springs as an attraction that will drive an appropriate degree of economic development. As to the rst, we agree another level of scientic studies is appropriate. Those are being done. But we worry that extensive, costly hydrological and geological studies could be used to stall and hijack the process. Meanwhile, the city has to come up with a credible long-range planning process that brings results. This didnt happen before, and some of the problem was the result of a vague approach that allowed decision-making to splinter. At the Roundtable, we most liked the well-structured process articulated by former City Commissioner Vanessa Carrusone. The steps: The City Commission holds a workshop (preferably televised to ensure public exposure) to outline its own expectations, procedures and a timeline. The public is invited to participate at meetings conducted by a professional facilitator. Experts in economic development, recreation and geology are asked to speak. Planners, business and environmental groups are invited to submit visions/proposals for the development and operation. Should the spa buildings be rebuilt farther from the Springs? Is a hotel desirable? Or health and wellness facilities? How big? Where would they go? A half-dozen proposals are selected for review. Include one that is basically a park. Also include the citys 2009 plan for development of the property. Take the proposals out on a series of community meetings. As Carrusone said, every effort should be made to get diverse views. Include a meeting outside city limits. A vetting committee cuts to three options. The City Commission reviews and makes a selection. There are dozens of variations. But to us, this type of carefully structured approach holds the most promise. The point is to gure out what the broadest segment of the community really wants and then gure out a way to get it done. Circus Arena supporters certainly battledThe Circus Arena is going to be destroyed and the Octagon building is on life support. Certainly a large number of people never thought we would see a paragraph start off with that sentence and held on to the belief that they never would. Now reality sets in and there is group of volunteers that is preparing for one last battle. For the most part, this group has never given up on the belief that our circus heritage should be preserved. Yet their battle weary faces tell the grim tale of a defeat that could have been prevented. In this instance, this is a defeat that typically does not dene how Venetians handle losing something with such signicant inuence on Venice being what it is today. One could easily move the end result blame to those responsible for failing to upgrade train tracks in order for the circus to stay years ago; a little foresight in that scenario could have had a different outcome for the arena. We just will never know about that. One could say that the group leading the charge to save the Arena never failed us in effort. Did we fail them? With all due respect to the group ghting so valiantly to save the arena, we were often perplexed with the route you were taking to make the dream a reality. Whether it be bad luck or fate, you all not only had to ght City Hall but often you had to regroup and overcome decisions that cost you time, money and publicity. You showed tenacity after every obstacle, whether self-inicted or thrown at you from left eld. You stood and stayed on target. For those efforts, the entire group deserves our admiration. As you stand tall and ght for the last building, perhaps a mir acle can come your way, helping you to manage to close out this ght with a victory. Thanks goes out to a group of Save the Circus Arena volunteers. You folks have shown us human spirit beyond belief. The city could have made a pro-active stance and found a way to save the whole thing, but chose not to. Will someone years from now look back on political decisions and maneuvering and say that the wise move would have been to get involved in saving the place instead of watching from the sidelines and waiting for the chance to end it with the dreaded majority vote from council? Here is what we do know: the circus was a huge part of shaping our community. We know the tracks were never upgraded to handle the advancements of technology years ago, and frankly those folks who ran the circus could have helped x those tracks and did not. Additionally, other than one past performer, we did not see a lot of support from past per formers routinely. In my mind, a handful of talented performers spending more time with the group to save the arena could have had a positive impact on the ght to save it all. Its very easy to second guess and make assumptions. Lets face it for all these years, weve been dealing with a bunch of performers.

CALL US AT 941-207-1111.Editors Note: We have received a few phone calls from people saying we got their words wrong in their Let Em Have It calls. Please make sure to speak slowly and clearly when you call in. There are some calls we cant use at all because we cant understand the person calling. Again, talk slowly and clearly, please. Trouble Getting Meds. Trouble getting medication at the pharmacy? The answer is yes sir! Its like ghting with David and Goliath because I have written approval to get medicine, sent away for it and was denied it 12 days later. Now they tell me to go to the hospital ER. Its a nightmare! No to Wolf Pack. I agree with the Let em Have It caller who says Why Wolf Pack? Does any one remember that Wolf Pack was the name of the Nazi submarines that used to sink ships full of innocent people? Im all for police stopping drunks on the road, but Wolf Pack? Give me a break. Supposed to be Temporary. The city of Venice parking issue has been a problem for years. I just want to remind folks that the land just south of the current City Hall and parking lot thats across the street, that vacant lot was purchased by the city with city taxpayers dollars for the purpose of additional parking in that area only. Now notice that the key word here is for additional parking, period. Just check the records. The moving of the old house to that particular lot was to be done on a temporary basis only. Thats exactly how it was agreed to ... temporary purposes only, period. It was approved by Council at that time and it was never approved by City Council at that time to move the old historical inn to that particular site on a permanent basis. It was approved and moved that the site was not to be the nal resting place of the historic house. It should have been relocated near or close to historic Triangle Inn. Its a natural and a nice, nal resting place for the house. Now were looking for additional parking. Its called baiting and switching, which seems like its done routinely through politicians. No to Bayfront. Is there anything the government of the city of Venice can do about the fact that this latest owner of our Venice hospital has injected the name Bayfront into the hospital even though Venice has, for a long time, prided itself and promoted itself, as the city on the Gulf, precisely because it isnt on any bayfront. This is yet another degradation of the care and pride of the city of Venice. No To Trolley. The words of the mayor. Beach trolley to the beach. I dont see why the business district would not tax itself with a trolley program all the way to the beach, said the Mayor John Holic. Did he really say to transport the people to the beach? How does he think people could park their cars in the downtown area where theres not enough parking now and just leave their cars and go to the beach for the day on the businesss money from the downtown business people. Also, Bob Daniels agreed with him. Lets try sending a trolley down to Caspersen Beach, Venice Beach and the South Jetty parking lots and bus people into the downtown area. Lets keep all those parking lots full, not the opposite way around. Better Bus Stops. Id like to ask the city to spend money on our bus stops so people would have a place to sit while they wait for the bus and also protection from the rain and the sun. I feel sorry for the people. It would be good to have a bench with a back on it so they could sit there more comfortably. I feel sorry for the people who I see trying to get out of the sun. I see women sitting on the ground waiting for the bus which I think its horrendous. Cant Get Her Meds. Did you know that the pharmacy has the right to refuse to rell your pain medication, especially the nar cotic? My daughter has a disease, not a common disease, that is considered something like cancer. Shes been on a medication, the same dosage, for 10 years. We went to get it lled one night and the lady said she had too much paperwork and asked that we wait until the next day. My daughter waited and then she wouldnt ll it. They have more control than the doctor does. When our doctor writes her prescription, he knows my daughter has been on the same dosage for 10 years. She cant stand anything to touch her and its really hard for me from month to month because we have to worry about whether shes going to get her medication. If she went into withdrawal, I dont know if she would die or not. So, I wish someone would write an article about this.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A You Messed Up. One thing I hate more than not having the Let em Have It in the newspaper is having the Let em Have It column reprinted twice. Editors Note: Yes, we did that. We regret it. Boy, do we regret it. Denition. Medical marijuana is not medicine. It is pot. Another Denition. Wolf Pack comments about the DUI highway patrol Wolf Packs: he says theyre named after wild carnivore and calls it unnecessary and inappropriate. I would suggest theyre really named after packs that hunted shipping in the Atlantic during World War II ... sneaky, underwater nasties that torpedoed ships that never saw it coming. Thats Wolf Pack tactics. Bad Motorists. The person who wrote the article from England about driving on the left side of the road or not driving on it until you pass, was great. That was really nice. Driving from here to Lake Erie was unbelievable. I have never seen so many people riding the left lane and doing everything from reading books, newspapers, putting makeup on and, of course, texting and phoning. The people in the United States do not understand how to move trafc here. There are trucks, buses and trucks pulling trailers, and if you go by them in the center or right lane, they think youre violating the law. None realize that the law states, slower trafc, move to the right. Unbelievable that they dont know the rules in the United States of America. Your Error. I suppose you people are aware that the Let em Have It column for this past Wednesday is the same as last Fridays. Just thought you might know with reference to quality control. Editors Note: It was the editors fault. Paving Needed. Jacaranda from the roundabout to Center Road also needs to be paved, especially the southbound lane. Please have that section repaved. Step Up, Israel. United States aid has built Israel into the strongest military power in the Middle East. Since ISIS is more of a threat to Israel, Israel should stand and ght with us. We have shouldered the burden of three Mideast wars and Israel has never gotten involved. Leave Venice As Is. Venice is a retirement community, why change it? We moved here because Venice is a retirement community. We did a lot of studying and we chose it because of who lives here and age. We stayed because it is a retirement community. Somebody does a study that says that only a small part of Venice is aimed at the retirement age. Thats because Venice is a retirement community with the majority of its residents retired. Sarasota is very close and Tampa and Fort Myers are close, too. They have beyond retirement services. Leave Venice alone. Its wonderful like it is. That is why we are here. If we wanted something else, we probably would have gone to Sarasota. No To Arena. Give up the arena. As the article said and many of us before said, no one has come forward with money and no plans for the old Circus Arena. A few are hanging on to the circus coming to town, but the circus has moved on. Its time they move on, too. Everyone is not as interested in the old circus arena. Please let it go. Not Enough Bikes. Millions for bicycles in Venice? Why? I cross bicycle trails many times a day at various times and have seen little bicycle trafc. Ive seen very, very few bicycles crossing the 41 Bypass overpass. Now they want to build a new bicycle bridge over the Intracoastal and make bike path improvements. The trafc is just not there. Bicycles are nice, but really, we just dont have the volume to spend that kind of money. No to Buses. How silly. There was an article about bus service for the beach and airport. Since when has the Venice airport become a bustling international airport? Is parking at the Venice airport the only available option for downtown? Does Venice really want huge, empty buses running on its streets? We dont need buses. Help Save Arena. What a great article in todays Gondolier about saving the Circus Arena. Its about time we get to read such a great story about why we should save this valuable piece of history of Venice. But what she failed to write about is the Venice Circus Arts Foundation that has been trying for the past four years to do just this. With its leadership, we have been trying to keep the circus alive. We have many great volunteers and have made progress in some ways and not so many in others. Give us a chance to sink or swim. Come on, Venice residents, get behind the VCAF in their coming events and show the City Council what we think about and need to do to save the arena. Enough, Already. Enough. Enough already. No more pictures of the mayor of Venice in drag. This is about the third week in a row in the paper that theyve shown the Venice mayor dressed up in drag. The city has other problems that need to be addressed. Please no more pictures. The Letem Have It line allows readers to sound off on issues of local interest.

SPORTSCONTACT US SCOTT LOCKWOOD SPORTS EDITOR 941-207-1107 slockwood@sun-herald.com SUN NEWSPAPERS 14A WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2014HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALLWhen the Venice Indians began preparations for the 2014 season back in August, they circled three games on their schedule that they must win: the three games against their 6A-District 7 opponents theyll have to beat to get a home playoff game in November. The rst of those three games takes place Thursday night when the Indians travel to St. Petersburg to take on Dixie Hollins. The game was moved up to Thursday due to this weeks Jewish holiday. They better be red up because weve got three games we have to win, said Venice head coach John Peacock, whose team is ranked fth in 6A and 25th overall in the state in this weeks Florida High School Football top 25 poll. And this is one of the three that we have to win. Venice, winners of a 14-7 rain-soaked affair over Mater Academy last Friday, defeated the Dixie Hollins Rebels last year and held their pass-rst offense in check in a 48-3 victory in Venice. This year, Dixie Hollins quarterback Tyrie Adams threw for more than 1,000 yards in the Rebels rst three games, including a 24-of-36 for 448 yards and a four-touchdown perfor mance in their 33-27 district win over Seminole a couple of weeks ago. That was their only win. They are 1-3. Adams averages more than 350 passing yards per game and can also run the ball as evidenced by his 57 rushing yards per game average. He does some unbelievable things on lm, Peacock said. He throws the ball on the money when theres pressure on him. We saw that last year when we played them. We were knocking him around but he was still putting it on the money. The Rebels have three receivers who each have more than 300 yards receiving through four games. Senior Davonte Harrington has six touchdown catches on the season so far while senior DVonte Cook leads the team with 19 grabs for 348 yards. Theyve got some receivers that can run and catch, Peacock said. Im not sure if hes got a favorite receiver, but hes got a couple of guys that he gets the ball to quite often. We denitely have to do a good job in our defensive backeld. Adams is the teams leading rusher. None of the teams other running backs have more than 100 yards on the season. I dont think theyll be a big threat to run the ball against us, Peacock said. Were pretty good against the run and thats not their deal. Indians cornerback Langston Provitt said that facing an offense like Dixie Hollins is going to be a big switch-up after playing teams that primarily run a run-rst offense over the past several weeks. Mater Academy and Charlotte each ran Wing-T attacks, and the Indians held one of the best backs in the area, Riverviews Karan Higdon, to 94 yards earlier this season. The Indians have allowed just a single touchdown in each of their past four games after surrendering 44 points to pass-happy Palmetto in the season opener, a 46-44 win by Venice. Were going to have to be working pretty hard on coverages this week, and I think weve got the defensive backs to stop them and our defensive line can create pressure, said Provitt, who had an inter ception that he returned for 36 yards in Fridays game. Im excited to face more throwing. The Rebels have struggled on the defensive side of the ball this year, allowing 47 points per game. In last weeks 49-0 loss to Pinellas Park, they gave up more than 500 yards on the ground. That plays right into the strength of the Venice offense, which Peacock said will have to put together some solid drives in order to keep the Rebels offense off the eld. The team is also working to eliminate drive-extending penalties this week after being agged 12 times for 119 yards Friday night. Theyre kind of in a shootout every week, Peacock said. Were going to have to score in the red zone, and Im afraid were going to have to put up more than 14 points. Well denitely have our hands full because its something that we havent seen a lot of. We saw it at the end of the Palmetto game, and we didnt fare too well. Prediction: Venice 42, Dixie Hollins 14Email: slockwood@venicegondolier.comMighty Mites: Venice Vikings Kings 32, Immokalee Seminoles 0 The Venice Vikings Kings traveled south last Saturday to face The Immokalee Seminoles. The Kings scored on its opening possession. Jack Huber took the handoff and ran 60 yards for a touchdown behind the blocking of Max Purdy, Zack Mitchell, Pierce Daniel, Dalton Grosse, Jacob OConnell, Spyro Strates and Michael Burns. The score remained 6-0 through the rst quarter. Halfway through the second quarter, Carter Dalton went around the right side and scored on a 35-yard run. The score at halftime was 12-0. The Kings took the opening drive and Alvin Johnson scored on a 40yard reverse. On the next drive, Brady Robertson took the snap and raced around the corner 40 yards for another King touchdown. After forcing a fumble, the Kings scored on another reverse by Dalton. Thomas Chace kicked the extra point, which is worth 2 points, making the score 32-0. All 35 players played defense and contributed in causing seven fumbles and recovering six of them. Jr. Peewee: Venice Vikings Knights 31, Immokalee Seminoles 8 The Venice Viking Knights raised their winning streak to ve games in a row after defeating Immokalee 31-8. Carson Smith had two 5-yard touchdown runs and Damon Wilson and Luke Wheatley each had a touchdown also. Jim Whitney kicked three extra points and Teddy Chace added another on a pass play. Eric Beck, Martin Ramos and Cato Glover Terry had big gains for rst downs and yardage all game. John Kisgen, David Raney, Mathew Peavely, Anthony Maldonado, Carson Beard, Domenic Franks, Hogan Hays, Noah Foster and Dalton Peacock created huge holes for the backs to run through. The defense caused three fumbles with Olivia Sleight grabbing one of them. Caden Peters, Cameron Berg, Michael Peavely, Jake Swartz, Martin Ramos, Gianluca Demassi and Jacob Papantonakis were standouts on defense, not allowing a touchdown all game. The Seminoles lone touchdown came on a kickoff return on the rst play of the game. After that, it was all Knights for the rest of the way. Next week, the Knights are on the road again playing Cape Junior. Peewee: Immokalee Seminoles def. Venice Vikings Lancers The Lancers played hard in the rain at Immokalee, but ultimately the Seminoles took over in the second half. Having a good game for the Lancers were Calvin Holton on the line blocking, along with Brandon Kotti and Luke Sleight. Defensively, the front line of Owen Patton, Ethan Beck and Caleb Fissel made several good plays and forced a couple of fumbles. Also contributing were Austin Munsell and Jacob Koss. No score was reported for this game. Jr. Midget: Immokalee Seminoles 30, Venice Vikings Crusaders 6 The Crusaders got to experience what it is like to play on artificial turf this week taking on Immokalee. It was another great game on defense by Miller, leading in tackles, followed by Nicol and Skapyak. Nicol pounded the ball, leading in yards for the Crusaders, but it was Maldonado who scored from 5 yards out to give the Crusaders their only points of the day, losing to Immokalee 30-6. Midget: Immokalee Seminoles 16, Venice Vikings Warriors 8 It was a nail-biter and a hard fought loss for the Warriors on the road this week. The Immokalee Indians scored on their opening drive but were shut down until the fourth quarter. The Warriors were able to break a long punt return by Derrick Kipp (who had several great returns on the night) and then a long run by TreQuan Outing that culminated in a 5-yard touchdown run by Scott Schenke, who also booted in the extra point to tie it up late in the third quarter. The Indians threatened in the fourth, but Outing grabbed a tipped pass for an interception to give the Warriors life again. Unfortunately, the ball was then turned over, giving the Indians a short eld, and they were able to score with just under three minutes left in the game. The Warriors were unable to tie it before time ran out. Coach Sal Mineo was happy with the entire defenses play as well as the overall effort by a team that never gave up.Venice set for high-flying Rebels attackVikings win pair of games over SeminolesBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSPORTS EDITORSTAFF REPORT The Venice rst team oense (left) faces o against the scout team defense in preparation for Thursday nights game against district rival Dixie Hollins during practice Monday at Venice High School.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 15A HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRYDylan Stovers runner-up nish highlighted a thirdplace effort for the Venice Indians boys cross country team at last weekends Lemon Bay Invitational in Rotonda. Stover ran in the lead pack for most of the race and competed the 5K course at L.A. Ainger Middle School in 17 minutes and 39 seconds. He was 50 seconds behind Port Charlottes Tyler Fisher, who was coming off a win in the Bradenton Runners Club Invitational two weeks ago. Dylan was able to over come some tired legs and run well, Venice coach Jason Potter said. He doesnt think he ran well because of the time but from course to course that varies. He ran faster last week but I think he had a stronger race this week. Jake Ireland nished 13th overall with a time of 19 minutes and 5 seconds. Potter said the teams nish could have been a little higher but he had some runners competing on tired legs from a tough week of practice. This team knows where we stand and where we need to be and what we need to do to get there, Potter said. Im very proud of the guys and they ran well. Anytime you get third out of eight teams, thats not too bad. The boys team is off this weekend and will compete in a meet at Disney World next Wednesday. Venices girls team had four runners compete in the event. Alexis Wheats time of 22 minutes and 58 seconds was 20th overall.Lemon Bay Invitational at L.A. Ainger Middle School, RotondaBOYSTeams: 1.

16A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014 Frustrated by decades of having little inuence on county policy as a private citizen, John Minder is running for the Sarasota County Commission so hell have one of ve votes and the chance to persuade at least two colleagues to agree with him. Minder is a nonpartyafliated candidate for the District 4 seat that Nora Patterson is vacating due to term limits. Hes running against Al Maio, winner of the Republican primary, and Democrat Ray Porter. A registered Republican, he said hes running without party afliation because he was concerned that if he ran as a Republican he and Maio might appeal to the same voters. Splitting those votes could have handed the nomination to Lourdes Ramirez, who campaigned on a platform of supporting the 2050 Plan for development east of Interstate 75. The commission is debating amendments to the plan to ease restrictions on development. Minder, a professional engineer, says theyd be too little, too late. has destroyed the economy in the county and cities, he said. I have told them they need to scrap the whole thing. The main problem with the plan, he said, is that it requires developments to be completed in phases, with the developer having to show at the end of each phase that the project is scally neutral that is, that it pays for the infrastructure improvements required for it in order to get permission for the next one. Banks like to nance projects in their entirety, he said. The uncertainty introduced by having to do them in phases makes them leery of lending. The part of Lakewood Ranch thats in Manatee County, where developers dont have to deal with similar restrictions, is booming, he said. Minder: 2050 Plan has destroyed the economyBy BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITERMINDER | 17 Teenage rebellion and Watergate converted Ray Porter to a Democrat in the mid s, and his rock-ribbed Republican mother still hasnt forgiven him, he said. Porter is a candidate for the District 4 Sarasota County Commission seat. He, Republican Al Maio or nonpartyafliated candidate John Minder will replace Nora Patterson, who is leaving the commission due to term limits. Hes running, he said, because lately Ive been very concerned about the direction of the county government. Proposed amendments to the countys 2050 plan for managing growth east of Interstate 75 are a major cause of his concern. While hes open to easing some of its restrictions on development, on the whole, he said, it makes sense to condition denser development on the preservation of green space. He said there is some validity to developers complaints about difculty in getting nancing because of needing to develop projects in phases, with a new approval required each time. But the public has legitimate interests too, and the real culprit in the downturn in construction was the Great Recession, not 2050, he said. If the current amendments being debated are adopted, he said he expects further attempts to weaken the plan, and possibly to erase the Urban Service Boundary the line beyond which the county hasnt committed to provide infrastructure. Though he favors keeping 2050 largely intact, Porter said he shouldnt be labeled as anti-growth. No one wants to put a stop to growth, he said, adding, I do think speed bumps to growth are Porter: Growth wont be derailed by speed bumpsBy BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITERPORTER | 17 Look Great And Feel Great Wi th A New Smi le & Fresh Look Request An Appointment Either On Our Website Or By Phone Voted Best Dental Office Multiple Years In A Row!

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 17A Besides, he added, developments always carry their own weight. Minder was a regular critic of the countys procurement department, which he accused of writing job specications tailored to favor some businesses over others. Although the department has improved, he said it still needs changes in management. He said homelessness is a countywide problem that needs a county wide solution Rather than build a shelter in downtown Sarasota, he favors converting the countys Big Old Building 8.5 miles east into a shelter and relocating the people who work there downtown, which would make them easier to supervise. Im a strong believer that you need to get the homeless out of the cities and get them treated, he said. His proposed shelter would be run by the county health department, with security provided by the Sheriffs Ofce. He foresees social service agencies setting up ofces near the shelter to be closer to their clients. He thinks new County Administrator Tom Harmer is doing a good job, and likes it that he thinks like a businessman. Government is a business, he said, and in his opinion Sarasota County is broke. He predicts tax increases to maintain service levels if 2050 isnt done away with because county stafng is barebones now. If you cant cut expenses any more, you have to raise taxes, he said. The boards mad as hell at me for saying that, but its the truth.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.comMINDERFROM PAGE 16 necessary. He said he supports providing economic incentives to attract new businesses to the area. Cities and counties throughout the state are vying to be considered and I think Sarasota County has to be competitive in that regard, he said. Hed like to study how other programs work to see if theres a better way to evaluate applications for assistance. Porter said hed like to have the county take another look at its contract with the Baltimore Orioles for the use of Ed Smith Stadium. The commissioners at that time were led to think that Cal Ripken Baseball would open an academy locally, but it didnt happen. He also thinks the Orioles could be better partners with Sarasota Little League. Porter was critical of prior commissions for allowing development around the University Parkway/I-75 inter change to get so far ahead of its ability to handle the trafc that the Mall at University Town Center will create when it opens soon with more than 100 stores and restaurants. The interchange was already decient for the trafc generated by Lakewood Ranch and Nathan Benderson Park. The mall, opening Oct. 16, will be a regional shopping draw on a daily basis. The commission has taken the position that interchange improvements are the states responsibility. While thats true, Porter said, it was the commission that approved all the development. I dont know how you can put the cart before the horse to that extent, he said.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.comPORTERFROM PAGE 16 Just in time for the season, Russell and Roberta Pettigrove have opened their two larger stores in the Rialto Shopping Plaza near Goodwill and Venice Regional Bayfront Health. Within the rst week, feedback has been 100 percent positive, Russell said. Customers have come and shopped in the fashion store, then gone to the adjoining furniture location and bought items there, too. People who have never seen the furniture selection cannot believe the spaciousness and choice of items, he said. Fis Rialto fashion store is almost double the size of both the downtown West Miami Avenue shops, and women love to browse the layout. Clothing, shoes and accessories are decoratively displayed, allowing people to move around comfortably. There has been much more trafc in the larger furniture store since the fashion store opened a week ago, he said. Parking is great for consignors who bring in clothes, and we have already signed up four new consignors. Fis on West Venice Avenue continues operating, with all three stores open six days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Starting last weekend and through season, the Pettigroves plan to open on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Among sources for supplies, they are called to estate sales where they offer and usually take every item from the home, she said.

WELLBEING 2B VENUE 3B CLASS ACTS 5BWEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2014 CONTACT US KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR 941-207-1000 kcool@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERSOUR TOWN Its one thing to hear secondhand about the type of impact the Boys & Girls Clubs have on young people in the community, and its quite another to see it face-to-face. When I came here, I had alienated myself, because my mom left my brother and sister and me, and I thought it was all my fault, said 16-year-old Caylee Lombardi, who was named Robert and Joan Lee Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year. But this place helped me to keep my head up this club basically saved my life. On Monday night, the Venice center opened its doors, and its kitchen, for the rst installment of a new Dinner Series, intended to educate the public about how the Boys & Girls Clubs provide caring guidance to children like Caylee in the Venice community. The evening began with a tour of the facility, including stops in some of the classrooms, where students showed off a few of the skills they were learning. In the theater room, costumes hung by the door, some of the tools of the trade for the young actors and actresses and their instructor Becky Holahan, who said that the program was designed to help build team play and condence in its participants. Im introducing theater to the children, and its a place where they can come in and be creative, she said. For instance, the rst week Layla was here, she was shy and now she is play ing. I look for this little one to really blossom. The Robert and Joan Lee Club is one of four in Sarasota County, and serves anywhere from 200 to 450 children per day. Other locations include the Gene Matthews Club in North Port, and the Lee Wetherington Club on Fruitville Road and the Roy McBean Club in Newtown, both in Sarasota. Director of Advancement Michael Doyle said that this particular club was built seven years ago on a budget of $4.5 million, but because of the gener osity of its patrons, now has only about $73,000 of that debt left to pay. Hes hoping to get even more people involved to help erase that as well. I dont think a lot of people realize whats here (at the Club), he said. And its all because of some visionaries who said, Venice deserves this. Doyle introduced a new program at the dinner called the Inspire a Child Initiative, which includes 100 plaques that will each be sold for $1,000. What makes these special is that each includes a favorite inspirational quote that an individual or family who is close to the Robert and Joan Lee Club has provided. After the plaques are purchased, they will be installed in the hallway of the Club, where children who are involved with the programs there can see the quotes and be motivated and inspired by them. Crows Nest Restaurant employees Nancy Strom and Executive Chef Jonathan DeRue volunteered their time and expertise to help teach the children how to prepare, serve and clean up the food for the dinner, which included lemon pepper grilled chicken and accompanying sides. This was great practice for another of the Clubs popular kids programs, the culinary arts. The Robert and Joan Lee Club is also in the process of planning its annual Christmas party, when it will host 125 needy children from across the county for a visit with Santa, presents, cookies and fellowship. As of right now, it has not secured a sponsor for the South County event and are looking to nd an individual or organization that would like to underwrite the party for $10,000. For those who are longtime supporters of the Boys and Girls Clubs, there is no better cause to fund than the children of the Sarasota County community. Ive been involved with the Clubs for about 12 years, said Tom Shapiro, chairman of the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota County. This is a wonderful Club. We are given a lot of children here were providing a much needed service.Dinner feeds information about Boys & Girls ClubBy DEBBIE FLESSNERGONDOLIER SUN CORRESPONDENTVenice Holiday Parade organizers Bob and Sue Hebert and friends are in parade-building mode. If you have a Scout troop, marching band, dancing angels, acrobatic team, oat or other person, animal or group that would add to the citys biggest parade, register now. We need to get all the registrations in by Nov. 1015, Sue Hebert said. We usually have about 3,000 in the parade. This will be the 39th annual holiday parade on West Venice Avenue and the 14th chaired by the Heberts and their crew of volunteers. As the parade is funded by the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and the City of Venice, there is no cost to either viewers or participants. Musical groups are especially popular with or ganizers and with viewers, she said. One of the more popular groups in past years was the Country Club Estates kitchen band. Hebert said she hopes that group will sign up again. Parade rules and regulations can be found on the parades website at www. VeniceHolidayParade.com or contact the Heberts at vhparade@verizon.net. I remember dealing with envelopes and mailing, she said. This is so much better. For those who want to enter the old-fashioned way, send a completed entry to Venice Holiday Parade at 1435 E.

WELL-BEING 2B WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2014 CONTACT US 941-207-1102 ablackwell@venicegondolier.com SUN NEWSPAPERS CROSSFROM PAGE 6 SUDOKUFROM CLASSIFIED SOLUTION TO TODAYS 7 LITTLE WORDS Every business is concerned about quality control, whether its product is an automobile, a restaurant meal or a newspaper. But what if your product is already impaired, per haps seriously, when you start working on it? Thats the conundrum that faces all hospitals. They deal with sick or injured people, not healthy ones. So hospitals are always focused on two measurable targets: (1) quality of care while the patient is with them, and (2) quality of patient outcome once the patient has left the hospital. How does a hospital go about tackling these two targets? I asked that question of Karlene Pietranton, chief quality ofcer at Venice Regional Bayfront Health. Shes not from Missouri she was born and raised in a blue collar suburb of Pittsburgh but you might think shes from the Show Me state, because when an issue of quality care comes up, she says, Show me the data. You need to see the evidence, she says. First nd out what the problem is. Is it an isolated instance, or is it something that has occurred repeatedly? Is it a people problem or a systems problem? If its a people problem, you work with those people on retraining. If its a systems problem, you have to nd a different way to do that job. Then you collect new data on your problem area to see if youve shown improvement statistically. Those data can be compared with national standards to see if your hospital is performing as it should be. Heres an example of how Venice Regionals staff deals with a particular problem. Recently, an elderly lady was brought to the emergency room with a possible heart attack and was sent to the Critical Care unit. The doctor on duty there ordered a venous catheter line to be inserted into her aorta for rapid administration of uids and medications. The line was inserted, but under periodic checking by the nurses it was found that the line kept leaking at the point of insertion, so there was incomplete delivery of the meds this woman needed, and there was a potential risk of infection. Finally, the nurses got it right and led a written report on the case at hand, after rst reviewing a protocol on central line insertions. The adherence protocol poses some tough questions: Who inserted the line? Was he or she a member of the Critical Care Intravenous Team? What was the reason for insertion? Was a consent signed by the patient? Did the inserter perform hand hygiene prior to central line insertion? Were sterile barriers mask, cap, sterile gown, sterile full-body drape and sterile gloves used? What skin preparation was used prior to insertion: chlorhexidine gluconate, povidone iodine, or other prep? Was it allowed to dry for 30 seconds? Where exactly was the insertion site? Was the catheter coated with an antimicrobial solution? And more. In all such cases, a written report goes to the physician who was on duty, to the hospitals risk manager and to Infection Control, which is a part of Karlenes Quality Improvement Department. The data are fed into a database the hospital maintains on potentially preventable complications in Critical Care patients including central line bloodstream infections, collapsed lung resulting from medical treatment, blood clots in the lung or a large vein after surgery, wounds that split open after surgery, accidental lacerations or punctures during surgery, bed sores, broken bones from a fall after surgery and bloodstream infections after surgery. These data are reviewed by the hospitals Quality Council, made up of all department directors, some staff nurses, one member of the hospitals Board of Directors and the chief quality ofcer, Karlene. A separate set of three quality improvement committees, one each for medical, surgical and clinical issues, also reviews these data as they pertain to physician performance. And the data are sent to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to help provide nationwide standards for critical care management. Working with the department staff members and physicians, the quality ofce sees to it that a solution is found and implemented. We always benchmark ourselves against the highest standards established by CMS, the Joint Commission and other accrediting bodies, Karlene says. The Gold Standard of care is our standard. The Quality Council and the QI committees meet only bimonthly and monthly, respectively. So Venice Regionals CEO, Peter Wozniak, holds a daily safety huddle at his morning meeting with all department heads. At the huddle, someone is responsible for bringing up a patient safety issue for review and follow-up say, a written physician order that didnt get carried out on time. What caused the delay? What personnel were involved? What was the consequence of the delay? Was the patient adversely affected? What corrective steps were taken? Does our physician ordering system need to change to avoid this situation in the future? At the next safety huddle, the problem and its resolution are reviewed. At our hospital, its rarely a people problem, Karlene says, but maybe theres a better way to do some things. We can always improve. Pete wants performance improvement to be a program for the whole hospital. It has to be data-driven. We have to focus on developing a culture that is dedicated to patient safety. Thats a great ambition for any hospital. Now, back to that elderly lady whose central line dressing kept leaking. It turned out she was drooling on her hands and chest, and inadvertently wetting the line and insertion site. A bit of drool triggered an elaborate mechanism of investigation and response. The price of quality is vigilance and hard work: examining everything you do in excruciating detail, and improving your performance increment by increment, day by day. Contrary to Shakespeares famous dictum, in a hospital the quality of mercy must be strained, and through a very ne sieve at that.Venice Regional: measuring the quality of mercy Dean Laux Meeting the Challenges of Caregiving is the focus of the 14th Annual Community Caregiving Forum on Saturday, Nov. 8.

According to information in a release from the foundation scleroderma is a chronic, often progressive, autoimmune disease, which means that the immune system attacks ones own body. Scleroderma means hard skin. It can cause a thickening and tightening of the skin. In some cases, it causes serious damage to internal organs, including the lungs, heart, kidneys, esophagus and gastrointestinal tract. As scarring, or sclerosis, of these organs and organ systems progresses, they work less effectively, and can lead to organ failure and death. Some medications and treatments can help with certain symptoms, but there is no cure for scleroderma. The disease affects an estimated 300,000 people in the United States. For more information, contact the Scleroderma Foundations National Ofce at 800-722-HOPE (4763).Mallozzis honored by Scleroderma FoundationBy KIM COOLFEATURES ARTICLE PHOTO COURTESY OF RONNI MALLOZZICos and Ronni Mallozzi on a trip to Spain.

Victor. They joined the 1,600 Black American high school seniors who were designated seminalists in the 51st annual National Achievement Scholarship Program announced recently by National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) ofcials. These scholastically talented young men and women now have an opportunity to continue in the competition for about 800 Achievement Scholarship awards worth about $2.5 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a National Achievement Scholarship, seminalists must fulll several requirements to advance to the nalist level of the competition. About 80 percent of seminalists are expected to attain nalist standing, and more than half of the nalists will win an Achievement Scholarship award. The National Achievement Scholarship Program, conducted by NMSC, is a privately nanced academic competition that oper ates without government assistance. It was initiated in 1964 to recognize academically promising black students throughout the nation and to provide scholarships to a substantial number of the most outstanding program participants. To date, close to 33,500 young men and women have received Achievement Scholarship awards worth about $105 million.About the 2015 CompetitionMore than 160,000 high school juniors from all parts of the U.S. requested consideration in the 2015 National Achievement Scholarship Program when they took the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Seminalists are designated within geographic regions and are the highest-scoring program entrants in the states that make up each region. To advance to the nal ist level in the competition, the seminalist and his or her high school must submit a detailed scholarship application in which they provide information about the students academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. Seminalists must present a record of high academic performance throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school ofcial, write an essay and earn SAT scores that conrm their PSAT/ NMSQT performance. From the nearly 1,600 seminalists, about 1,300 are expected to advance to the nalist level, and in January they will be notied of this designation. All Achievement Scholar awardees will be selected from the nalist group on the basis of their abilities, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.National Achievement ScholarshipsNational Achievement Scholarships provided in 2015 will be supported by corporations, professional organizations, foundations, and by NMSCs own funds. Two types of scholarships will be offered. Every nalist will compete for one of the 700 one-time National Achievement $2,500 Scholarships, which will be awarded on a regional representation basis. In addition, corporate and business sponsors will underwrite about 100 Achievement Scholarship awards for nalists who meet criteria set by the grantor. Although some corporate-sponsored awards provide a single payment, most are renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study. NMSC will release the names of scholarship winners to news media in early April.Transition of the ProgramThe National Achievement Scholarship Program will undergo a transition after the conclusion of the 2015 program. NMSC is forging a new relationship with United Negro College Fund (UNCF). UNCF will carry on the name and legacy of the National Achievement Scholarship Program through a newly designed program for college graduates. The new program, which will be administered by UNCF and underwritten by the National Achievement Scholarship Program, will honor and award nancial assistance to high-achieving, underrepresented college graduates. According to Matt Burdreau, spokesman with NMSC, Details about the new program have yet to be nalized.

AROUND TOWN 8B WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2014 CONTACT US FRAN VALENCIC SOCIAL COLUMNIST franvalencic@comcast.net SUN NEWSPAPERS More than 1,000 hobbyists came aboard at whistle stop Ramada Inn for a spectacular train show. I have 55 Lionels, and have been collecting for a long time, Ray Majeski said as he checked out the booths. Giuseppe Ragozzino had a hard time tearing his grandson away from the huge train display in the lobby. It was fun hearing adults sharing childhood train stories with their grandchildren. I still have my wind-up train that always made its way around our Christmas tree each year. I bet many readers have similar memories. Thank goodness we live in Venice where pretty often there is an event like the train show that gives us a chance to be a kid again.Stop and ShopThe newest happy place in town is The Cottage at 106 E. Pocono Trail in Nokomis located behind the Caf Evergreen. The place radiates color and fun. Artists are proud of their work and enjoy showing it off. The Cottage is a working studio so most times someone will be creating a treasure. Its open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.9/11 KudosThree cheers to the students of Venice Christian and their crew for making the Remember 9/11 sign for Patriots Park and placing nearly 3,000 ags at the entrance honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Hats off to the students at Venice Area Middle School for lining the front path of their school with flags on 9/11. Not only did it commemorate the day but it gave a nice feeling to Rick Tacys family and friends as they drove by on their way to his burial at Venice Memorial Gardens. One of Our BestThe special person of this week is Jane Madden. This nice lady supports Venice projects whenever she can. Jane teaches a Silver Sneakers exercise class at the Senior Center twice a week. Her class keeps growing as Jane always has time for her students and strives to make each one feel comfortable. Jane is one of the popular models in town and walks the runway like a pro. We all know in season Venice can be called the fashion show capital of the world. Jane volunteers when called on yet always has time for shopping and fun with family and friends. She is a kind lady. Jane Madden is one of the women who make Venice a great place to live.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 Ive never noticed how often arts and crafts fairs happened in our region until I became the editor of Lets Go! If they happen often, it must mean they are successful events in our community. Its a great thing to know that our community values the arts. Just a couple of weeks ago we had the Sullivan Street Craft Fair in Punta Gorda and a couple of weeks before that there was one in Downtown Venice. This week, there is one in Downtown Sarasota. Although, I may not be able to feature every single fair on the front page, each is as import ant as the next because each holds as much talent as the next one. The Sarasota Art & Craft Festival returns this fall in support of breast cancer research. Taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 4-5, the fair will feature many art and gift items inspired by the ght against breast cancer. Many vendors will also be wearing pink to show solidarity. There will also be a Green Market oering plants, exotic orchids, gourmet spices, dips and more. Admission is free. It will be held at 5 Points Park and Central Avenue in Downtown Sarasota. For more information, visit www. artfestival.com. G ABRIELA M ENDOZA Lets Go! Editor Watch out for ghosts and ghoulies along Tampa Avenue in Venice. Every building from Venice Theatre west to the Summit, including Luna Ristorante and the Venice Centre Mall, is said to be haunted. So are all the theaters and I am not just talking about the ghost lights on stage between performances. Halloween parties are occurring almost nightly at all the major theme parks. Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party is my personal favorite. It takes place most evenings this month in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney Resort. For folks a lot tougher than I am, the ul timate scare fest is Universals Halloween Horror Nights, which is already sold out for Halloween evening. It is geared strictly for adults with strong hearts. Somewhere in between are Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, the Oct. 17 Pumpkin Toss at Tampas Lowry Park Zoo and Legoland Floridas Brick-or-Treat where the ghosts have hard edges. Legolands spooky event will be every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and each Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all this month. Kids can wear costumes at the Magic Kingdom and also at Legoland where there will even be a contest with prizes. Only at Legoland can you build your own pumpkin at the model activity station in the Wells Fargo Fun Town 4D Theatre Plaza. While there are several Legolands around the world, only the Florida park has the worlds largest LEGO Jack-O-Lantern, made of 26,500 LEGO bricks. I think that if I every grow up, building LEGO models could be a fun job. I cried when my daughter stopped playing with them and I could no longer justify keeping them out and ready to go, while blaming her. Happy haunting!

MOVIES NOW PLAYING Runtime: 1 hr. 36 min. | Rated PG | For umor, action and some peril In the village of Cheesebridge, a Victorian-era berg obsessed with wealth, class and stinky AP PHOTOIn this image released by Columbia Pictures, Marton Csokas, left, and Denzel Washington appear in a scene from The Equalizer. If you were lucky enough to catch Denzel Washington in A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway, you saw the hugely charismatic actor portray, in an iconic role, the full complexity of a human being: strengths and weaknesses, attributes and aws, durability and vulnerability. All topped o, of course, with that boyish Washington charm. Alas, Washington doesnt always choose big-screen roles similarly worthy of his unique talent. This is especially true of The Equalizer, a thriller that tries to establish the 59-year-old actor as a middle-aged action hero, a la Liam Neeson. Here, we get to see Washington kill a lot of people. The Equalizer isnt a terrible movie, as action sagas go. It just doesnt nearly live up to what it aspires to be, which is a smart, classy update of the 1980s TV series of the same name, about an ex-government agent who spends his retirement as a sort of ultra-violent avenging angel, rubbing out villains who treat good people badly. Changes have been made liberally. On TV, Robert McCall (Edward Woodward) was a debonair middle-aged guy in a trench coat, collar upturned, cruising the streets of New York in a black Jaguar. Here, no trench coat, no Jaguar, no New York. Director Antoine Fuqua and writer Richard Wenk have moved the action to Boston, and Washingtons McCall is a blue-collar type. A widower with few possessions, he spends his days working at the Home Mart, and his nights reading literary classics and drinking tea at the diner. Its at this diner that McCall befriends a sweet young prostitute (Chloe Grace Moretz). And when her pimps nasty Russian mob types, straight from central casting rough her up so badly she ends up clinging to life in a hospital, McCalls vigilante instincts emerge. He confronts the thugs, trying to buy her freedom. They laugh. Bad move. Using his hyper-vision skills, he sizes up the room and dispatches every thug within seconds (hes counting), using handy props like a corkscrew. You could do worse than watch Washington kick butt for two hours (actually, a little more.) But it would be a lot more interesting to watch him struggle while doing it. Overall, its not a bad movie but if you are a Denzel fan, Lets Go! says go!

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 1 7, 2014 UPCOMING EVENTSThirty minutes. Five secret ingredients. Four local chefs. Two dishes. Those are the primary components of Venice MainStreet's annual Iron Chef competition, which takes place on Sunday, Oct. 12, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Fins restaurant. For this year's installment, a couple of the basics are dierent, beginning with a change in location. In previous years, Iron Chef has been held at the Venice Yacht Club, but with the completion of Sharky's on the Pier's new restaurant, Fins, the competition has the potential to be even more productive. "The chefs will be able to use our brand new equipment and kitchen," said Sharky's owner Justin Pachota. "They will be able to be even more creative." In the past, the way the contest has worked is that once they arrived at the competition, each of the four participants/chefs was given one secret ingredient that they needed to use in preparing their dish. Last year's ingredient was saron, the year before that was Wonder Bread and three years ago, it was bacon. Kat Quast, director of Venice MainStreet, which presents the event, said that this year's contestants will be presented with something a little dierent. "In the spirit of change, we have added some elements from 'Chopped,'" she said. "Each chef will receive a basket containing ve ingredients. All of these ingredients must be used in some combination in the two courses, appetizer or entree." "Chopped" is a show on the Food Network, in which four chefs are each given a basket of ve ingredients, which they then have to turn into a dish that is judged on its creativity, presentation and taste, with minimal time to plan and execute. The 2014 Iron Chef will include chefs from four local restaurants: Blu' Island Bistro, Cafe Venice, The Daiquiri Deck and Snook Haven. After being allowed 30 minutes to prepare their two dishes, the chefs will present their work to the judges. "This year, three judges will be pulled from the audience, plus we have a special guest judge, Marsha Fotler, Lifestyle Contributor to 'Venice' and 'Sarasota Magazine' and culinary journalist," Quast said. "Four chefs step into the ring one chef emerges victorious." Iron Chef is a very popular, good-natured competi tion, and with the addition of audience member judg es, will be even more engaging for attendees. Though some of the contest participants may be familiar from years past, winners are not allowed to compete the year immediately following. Sharky's chef Marc Alton last won in 2012, while using secret ingredient Wonder Bread in his pan-seared scallops with blue cheese toast points. But because Sharky's is actually hosting the competition this year, they are not allowed to compete. Pachota said that is all right, because it really is all about helping to raise money for Venice MainStreet and keeping downtown Venice beautiful and viable. "We're excited to be hosting it, and are even willing to give up our Sunday dinner for it," he said. The 2014 Iron Chef Competition is Sunday, Oct. 12, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Fins at Sharkys on the Pier, 1600 Harbor Dr. S., Venice. Tickets are $25 each, and can be purchased at: Blu Island Bistro, 625 South Tamiami Trail; Cafe Venice, 116 West Venice Ave.; Venice Wine and Coee; 121 West Venice Ave.; Venice MainStreet, 101 West Venice Ave.; or online at www.VeniceMainStreet.com.

In the hopes of bringing something new and exciting to the free Oct. 4 event in front of the Historic Courthouse on Taylor Street, organizers are having a Chicken Dance contest.

There will be a chicken out there at 5:30 p.m. who will be doing the Chicken Dance in the square to get people out on the dance oor. Then the chicken and two others will judge the contest. We are looking for people dressed in their best chicken costume. Weve been doing the festival for seven years. We like to change things up. Presseller said he hopes the word will get out for next years event because hed like to put Punta Gorda in the Guinness Book of Records for having the largest citywide Chicken Dance. The festival is from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and features authentic German oompah music, beer, wine, soda, Schnapps and wursts. There will be a well-known accordion player from Germany strolling through the food court and playing guests favorites. Live music will also be played during the event. The event features a lederhosen/dirndl, contest with prizes from local businesses. There will be 50/50s and gift basket raes throughout the night. Theres plenty of food vendors including pretzels and German pork dishes, he said. The food is very good. Its mostly German food. There will be an ice cream truck there for kids. There will be pony rides too. Last year, the event drew about 2,000 people. The event sponsor, the Punta Gorda Downtown Merchants Association, Inc., hopes more will come this year. People come from all over to celebrate, said Presseller, who is the president of the Punta Gorda Downtown Merchants Association and Pressellers Restaurant in Punta Gorda.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 13 THINGS TO DO What favorite place might you leave not smelling as good as you feel? If youre a cigar acionado a cigar bar. Pity the poor cigar smoker. Venues for smok ing are few, and that stinky stogie compels even liberal barkeeps to ing up No Cigar Smoking signs. Smoke a cigar in the comfort of your fam ily room, watching college ball with a Yuengling in hand? Are you kidding me? If Im lucky, the better half might let me smoke in the garage. With the door open. And a fan on. In the day, gentlemen could retire to the library to make or break deals over an after-dinner cognac and cigar, while the ladies gathered to do whatever they did in the parlor. For Gods sake, how could a lady get herself a cigar? Lynn Davies could. She was such a serious archaeology/ne arts major at Florida State that she didnt even know what a Nole was until sophomore year. And yet, this studious young lady had cigar smoke in her veins. Eldest child of a Lee County judge who smoked really nasty cigars at home, Lynn is unquestionably her fathers daughter. Firstborns are usually overkill and have to live up to those expectations, she grins. Ever since a Cuban migr buddy introduced Lynn to her rst primo cigar in 1993, she hasnt stopped. In fact, she claims to have smoked each of over 30 brands and countless singles, boxes, bundles, samplers, and limited editions carried by her and husband Bills Port Charlotte cigar emporium, Tobacco Locker. Lynn and Bill met over cigars, on a cruise. After a year of cross-country courtship, they moved together to Florida. Wherever they went, they gathered cigars to the tipping point where Bill made a purchase and Lynn groaned, If we collect any more, well have to open a store. His eyes lit up, and the rest is history. When they moved into their current location seven years ago, they lled its 1,000 square feet with scientically humidied inventory and began selling online (tobaccolocker.com). Four years ago, the couple added a living room to the store. The Locker is tucked away in a mini industrial park o Collingswood, so it takes some word of mouth to draw customers in. But the word is out. Here you can sink deep into a leather club chair and relax like nowhere else. Consider this your other living room and kitchen, where you can help yourself to a cigar and craft beer or wine, with Bill or Lynn recommending the perfect pairings. You might even have your own cedar-lined cigar locker with a brass plaque engraved Tiger Man or The G odfather, and conduct likeminded conversa tions with other connoisseurs. Theres a surge of interest in the cigar business, says Lynn, and theres no question that Florida, with Cuban enclaves like Tampas Ybor City and Miami, is its hub. Clients come from all over Venice, Punta Gorda, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs seeking the quality and variety of Tobacco Locker cigars. Any given day, you might nd doctors, lawn care pros like Dave Precht, CEOs, the mayor of North Port, or Vince Powers, disabled for years, all hanging out in a cloud of camaraderie. Theyre very accepting of everyone here, says Vince. And theres no membership fee! Lynn agrees, We have a good crowd. Smoking cigars is a social event, so w hen new people come in, its easy for them to join the conversation. The Davieses recently took 28 clients on a road trip to see their own cigar factory in Nicaraguaa casa (house) where workers roll cigars and tend the tobacco. They give back through fundraisers for the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, a nonprot created by the cigar-making Fuente and Newman families to provide education and health services to poor families in the Dominican Republic. They also work with the Cigars for Warriors organization, through which they serve online customers in Afghanistan. One of them, John Callahan, just returned from his third tour. What does Lynns dad, now a former cigar smoker, make of all this? He congratulates them, laughing, When the big bust comes, youll have something to barter with! Know another restaurant or bar with a good story to tell? Sue Wade wants to hear about it, at sue.gleasonwade@contractor.cengage.com.Sometimes a cigar is more than a cigar SUN PHOTOS BY SUE WADEInside the Tobacco Lockers walk-in humidor, even the boxes are works of art.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 1 7, 2014 DINING OUTWhen Doug Eichelberger was growing up in Long Island, his parents owned a catering business in addition to working full-time jobs. That is where his love for cooking started. I was rolling meatballs in the kitchen when I was 8 years old, he said. My poor dad couldnt park his car in the garage with all the stu we had in it. Eichelberger said he was approached in 2002 by Abe Arnasi, the owner of Portono Waterfront Dining, to be his general manager. In 2006, he became one of the chefs at the restaurant. They have an extensive menu that includes shrimp and scallop alfredo, chicken fettuccine alfredo, pasta e polpette, chicken and veal Marsala, veal piccata and chicken and veal parmigiana. I put 15 dierent ingredients in my meatballs, he said. Even my mom and dad didnt do that. Seafood is another staple at Portonos. Stued ounder, grouper, and shrimp dishes are available plus another treat, especially for customers who hail from the northeast lobster fresh from Maine. Lunch and dinner specials include lobster and shrimp salad, a lobster and shrimp Caesar salad, lobster and steak, lobster and shrimp ravioli and lobster and shrimp Fra diavolo. I also make a lobster burger, Eichelberger said. But instead of putting it on a New England hot dog-style roll, I use a Kaiser roll. Because he lived in New Orleans for four months, and travels there every year for the Jazz & Heritage Festival, Eichelberger said he likes to sneak in as many Creole dishes as he can. I have jambalaya, gumbo pie and shrimp and grits on the menu, he said. I just love Cajun cooking. Portonos is closed on Monday during the summer months but Eichelberger said they oer a for $10 lunch menu on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays where all the items, such as lasagna, fried shrimp, grilled chicken salad, chicken ravioli and fried ounder dinners, cost only $10. In addition to Italian, seafood and Creole cooking, Portonos oers a 14-ounce New York strip steak, peppercorn-crusted steak au poivre, and a 14-ounce steak Sinatra, char-grilled and smothered with mushrooms, onions and peppers. Desserts are a passion of Eichelberger as well. He likes to experiment and admits he makes the best cheesecake. I have a special recipe now that is a combination of key lime and white chocolate with an Oreo cookie crust, he said. The key lime is tart and the white chocolate is sweet. It is a good balance. In accordance with the Charlotte Regional Hospitals Healthy Heart Dining Program, Eichelberger said they offer gluten-free products on their menu as well. Eichelberger said the restaurant was closed for a year after Hurricane Charley steamrolled its way up the Peace River. During that time, Arnasi added the outside deck and gazebo where bands perform on the weekends during the summer and Wednesday through Sunday during the winter months. We refer to it as B.C., or Before Charley and A.C., After Charley, he laughed. We were at ground zero when the storm hit. Matter of fact, the awnings over the Race Trac gas station you see coming over the bridge into Port Charlotte from Punta Gorda ended up in our parking lot. Despite the destruction, Eichelberger said the restaurant remodeled and reopened with the added space and a newly designed Tuscany Room that holds 110 people for small weddings, private meetings and parties. Its a perfect location to hold a private function or have an intimate dinner for two, he said. The view overlooking the harbor is magnificent. Portofinos is located at 23241 Bayshore Road, Port Charlotte. Winter hours are Sunday to Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant is closed on Mondays during the summer months.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 17 DINING OUT WITHAs the Library Manager at Venice Public Library, Ann Hall is responsible for keeping the library running smoothly. On any given day, that could mean ordering books, calling the IT department in Sarasota for tech support, or handling a dicult situation with a library customer. Hall takes it all in stride, with a sunny demeanor and vivacious personality not often associated with the word librarian. I tell people, Im not your mothers librarian, Hall said with a laugh. You have to have good people skills to manage a library because youre working with the public. My sta has a lot of responsibility, but they call me in when they need me. When shes not managing the library, she enjoys dining out, especially at one of her favorite restaurants, Cassariano Italian Eatery, 313 W. Venice Ave., Venice. Cassarianos menu is packed with appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches and entrees. Hall said she has tried many of them and all are delicious. But she didnt hesitate to order her favorite, the Linguine Integrali allOrtolana, or whole wheat linguine, mixed veggies and tomatoes. It arrived steaming with a wonderful aroma, a nice mix of vegetables and a decorative crisp on top. Even the smaller lunch portion was large enough that Hall took half of it home. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday for lunch (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and dinner (4:30 p.m.), and Sunday for dinner only. Its been in Venice for nearly eight years, and at its current location for one year. Despite they nearly tripled their seating capacity from the move, reservations are still suggested. In fact, server April Mielchen said that in-season reservations often need to be made several weeks in advance. Beginning Oct. 5, Cassarianos will have Jazz Nights on Sundays, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at no extra charge. For re servations, call 941-485-0507. Aside from dining out, Hall also likes to speak out to the community, often enlightening peo ple with all that the library oers. In speaking to a group of young professionals re cently, they were surprised to learn that e-books, music, magazines and videos can all be used at no charge through the library. Users dont even have to come in to the library; they can use the services online as long as they have a library card. Many people do come in to the library, however, to use the Internet, also free of charge. Some bring their laptops and use the free Wi-Fi and electricity. Others, who arent as computer savvy, may need some help using the librarys computers. Snowbirds who are only here in-season dont want to pay for Internet, so they come to the library, said Hall. They can even print for 15 cents per page. Of course, the library still has books, and a lot of them. Our area has many highly educated retirees, so we must have a wide collection ranging from books on medicine to gardening, physics, cooking and UFOs, Hall said. In her spare time, Hall likes boating, counted cross-stitch and, of course, reading. Shes also very involved in the Womens Sertoma Club of Venice, which organizes the annual Sun Fiesta. This years event will be Oct. 17, 18 and 19, and Hall describes her role as the beer tent lady. The Venice Public Library is located at 300 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice.

18 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 1 7, 2014 DINING OUTIf you havent been to the Olde World Restaurant and Lounge lately and its dicult to imagine anyone around here who hasnt nows the time to go. Celebrating its 28th anniversary in January, the iconic North Port restaurant continues to oer an extensive, eclectic menu and provide a gathering place where you can enjoy a wide range of entertain ment and activities. Owners Christine Zagrobelny and Joe and Teresa Skoczylas arent kidding when they describe Olde World as Floridas Meeting Place. The Shriners, Lions, Rotary, North Port Chamber and other groups frequent the restaurant for business and pleasure, as do Texas Hold em poker players, karaoke singers and a host of others. Our party and banquet room alone can accommo date 100 people, with a dance oor and bar, Teresa said. We host weddings, baby showers, birthday parties, anniversaries, wakes you name it. Olde World attracts a diverse clientele that appreciates the relaxed and welcoming setting. We appeal to dierent age groups, Christine said. They come for the atmosphere and the food. We love people and keep our prices in line, so they can have a good meal for good value. Open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, Olde World oers a wide-ranging menu. There are so many choices that reading the menu itself is part of the fun. And each item is prepared to perfection. Breakfast starts at $3.75, and you can substitute Eggbeaters for a $1 up charge. Premium choices include eggs benedict and Lox-a-Benedict, plus authentic U.S. Marine Corps S.O.S. (if you dont know what that means, dont ask). For lunch, you can choose from an array of creatively named sandwiches, including the Beef Barb-E-Q Streishand, Moehammed Ali (the heavyweight champion of chix sandwiches) and Marcel Marsooo. Then theres the Holy Guacamole West Coast burger and the Patty Dukie melt. Dinner prices range from $9 to $21. Daily dinner specials include Kentucky bourbon New York strip steak, stued salmon and mussels marinara over pasta. Also on the dinner menu are prime rib, seafood pasta, tilapia and grouper, which Christine says is our number one seller. The restaurant also puts together a variety of gluten-free choices. Everything on our menu is prepared fresh and cooked to order, Christine said proudly. We dont use any frozen food. We prepare our own soups, salads, quiche and breadsticks from scratch Teresa added, as well as our creative salads and sandwiches. Food and service has certainly given Olde World a loyal following, but its nothing compared to the loyalty of the sta. Of the 50 people employed there, Christine says, 90 percent have been there at least 10 years. In fact, the devoted sta may be a big reason the customers keep coming back. Day manager Kim Chartrand, for example, started at Olde World six months after the restaurant opened. Asked why she stayed so long, Kim simply pointed to Christine. Its a family atmosphere. Joe is Christines brother, so she and Teresa are sisters-in-law. Christines late husband, John Zagrobelny was one of North Ports most prominent citizens. His tireless eorts in making North Port a great place to live, both as a business leader and community supporter, brought him numerous accolades over the years. In 1995, the U.S. 41 access road leading to Olde World was renamed Zagrobelny Way in his honor. Joe, the restaurants main chef, created many of the dishes that have become synonymous with Olde World. He was a chef in Connecticut before moving to Florida. We used to come down with John and Christine and visit family here, Joe said. We found this place and thought it would be a good investment, since there was no quality restaurant between Port Charlotte and Venice. Bartender Robin Simpson has been with Olde World 23 years. Her specialties include Mai Tais and all manner of martinis, including a pina colada version. As day manager, Kim oversees the breakfast and lunch shifts, including scheduling and bookkeeping. She also helps out in the dining room and kitchen when needed. Someone always needs help when it gets busy, she said, and it always gets busy. The same could be said of night manager David Tavarez, who started at Olde World 10 years ago as a bus boy and worked his way up. This place has a unique atmosphere, and thats a big reason its so successful, he said. Its not a cookie-cutter restaurant. Indeed. Olde World continues to stand alone as a restaurant that cares for its customers and community. Were a family, Christine said, me, Joe, Teresa, the sta, and our customers. Our snowbirds let us know when theyre going away, and were one of the rst stops they make when they return. This is our home, she added, spreading her arms to encompass the restaurant, the city of North Port and the world. Were here to stay. The Olde World Restaurant is at 14415 Tamiami Trail, North Port. For more information, call them at 941-426-1155.Everything Olde is new againBy DAN MEARNSSUN CORRESPONDENT Executive chef Peter Dotalo keeps food simmering in the Olde World kitchen.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 19 LIVE MUSICThe Copperhead Band, which is best known locally for its southern/classic rock style, will open for the legendary Charlie Daniels Band on Oct. 10 at the Englewood Event Center. That show is sold out and Copperhead Band guitarist and singer Dave McReynolds said the group is thrilled to be a part of the event. Id like to say we got that gig through hard work, practice and sticking to what we believe in, McReynolds said. Weve gotten some local notoriety over the last couple of years because we made the decision to play just the stu we like, and not just sell out and play anything because it would sell. Some people have taken an interest in that and the Englewood Event Center is one of them. Copperhead was formed inDecember of 2009. Drummer Gary Arnold and bass player Tim Freeset out to create what they termed a good band with longevity.Arnold and Free next brought in guitarist Todd Rodgers and the band bounced around for about six months before receiving their rst paid gigs. Copperhead needed a lead singer/guitarist and Rogers suggested an old school friend, Mark Rom, with whom he had played in a number of other bands. Rom showed for a practice and after the rst song, wasasked to join. In 2012, McReynolds, who is from Port Charlotte, was added and the band was complete. I think the name The Copperhead Band was taken from names drawn from a hat, McReynolds laughed. They had a bunch of names and that one got picked. Their music is a blend of classic rock, southern rock, blues and country rock, McReynolds said, with cover songs ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd and Van Morrison to Foghat, and Steve Earle with a healthy mix of their own original songs mixed in. Were southern rock with a country air, he said. We do classic rock as well, but I think we all gravitate to a more southern approach to it. We do Allman Brothers and Blackberry Smoke, which is collectively one of our favorite bands. We do the Eagles and the Doobie Brothers. We also cover some country stu with an edge, like Jason Aldean and The Kentucky Headhunters. McReynolds added the group has only ve original songs nished, with a lot more in the hopper and plans to showcase some of them when opening for the Charlie Daniels Band. They also appear frequently at the popular restaurant/bar Englewoods On Dearborn, where theyve scheduled a show on Oct. 3. Thats our rst gig back after our summer o, McReynolds said. We go on at 7 p.m. that night. Thats a popular spot. Theyve had a lot of national blues acts there and were one of the bands they like to have as a regular. Other upcoming dates for The Copperhead Band include a 9 p.m. show on Oct. 17 at the Loony Bin in Port Charlotte and a 7 p.m. show on Oct. 24 at the Local group The Copperhead Band to open for Charlie DanielsBy STEVEN J.

Vendors are invited to secure a spot to sell their products, from produce to baked goods to crafts and more. This is a great opportunity for vendors to showcase their homemade, handmade, homegrown products. Vendors may call 863-990-2340 to secure a spot. The theme of the Oct. 4 Farmers Market is Fall Florida Style, featuring Fall produce, Fall crafts and fall colors. To kick it o, Arcadia Main Street is sponsoring Scarecrows on Main. This will be an opportunity for businesses, clubs and individuals to form a team and build a scarecrow. Straw is being provided, and groups will bring their own materials for creating their scarecrows on Oct. 4. Once completed, the scarecrows will be displayed along the sidewalks of downtown Arcadia where they will lend a festive atmosphere. The scarecrow building will begin at 10 a.m. in the Suntrust parking lot (where the hay will be). Spots are limited call Main Street at 863-990-2340 to register to be part of Scarecrows on Main.Arcadia Farmers Market returns Oct. 4 Celebrate a 100th birthday and enjoy the annual Miakka hootenanny Sunday at the Old Miakka Schoolhouse. Still being used although not as a schoolhouse is the 100-year-old schoolhouse building, which will be open for tours during Sundays event. Both the event and parking are free. We spell Miakka with an i because that is the right way, volunteer Brad Fitzgerald said. Many people here are particular about the spelling of Miakka. A common story is that when Miakka was registered on the Federal map for a post oce, the man who sent in the request wrote so poorly that they couldnt read it, so the little settlement went on the federal papers as being spelled with a y instead of an i. Some folks refer to the community as Old Miakka, but others insist on simply Miakka. In either case, a 100-year-old building that is still in use is somewhat rare in the Sarasota County area. Miakka was the rst school district to petition the Manatee County School Board to issue $2,500 in bonds for construction of the building. Contractor J. E. Rogers was hired on Aug. 20, 1914, and 2 acres of land for the new building was to be deeded to the county by Augustus M. Wilson. The new schoolhouse, sited to face north and elevated in case of high water, was completed on Sept. 10, 1914. Professor Lee Hall and the rst students moved into the building on Sept. 24, 1914. A back room was added sometime later and, in 1937, a sidewalk and modern outhouse were constructed. Six grades were housed in the school in the 1930s with Jasper Crowley as the teacher. The school closed in 1944. The building was taken over by the Miakka Community Club in October 1948. The Board of Public Instruction signed over the deed to the club on Dec. 3, 1948. The club has maintained the building ever since. The old school was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 3, 1986. A $7,000 state restoration grant for matching funds was awarded in August 1990. The school bell was rung on June 8, 1991, to celebrate restoration of the schools exterior. A wheelchair ramp was added and sidewalk repaired. Interior and exterior painting is next on the maintenance schedule. The Hootenanny will accept contributions to be a student, teacher, principal, or school superinten dent, with recognition on a plaque. Proceeds from the anniversary and other events go to support the maintenance and restoration of the old schoolhouse. To get there, use Exit 210 (Fruitville) o I-75 and travel east to the end of Fruitville. Turn right and watch for the old Schoolhouse about 2 miles ahead.
