SUN FIESTA ARRIVESPage B1 October 15-17, 2014 Vol. 69 No. 49 An Edition of the Sun PHOTO BY JOSEPH JOHN ORCHULLI IIAs the rst of many storms began their assault on Venice and Sarasota County Tuesday, their approach was easy to see from the beach. Photographer Joseph John Orchulli II captured this approaching storm in all its panoramic beauty from a beach in Nokomis.A storm announces its arrival A Venice drunk driver nearly ran over a Sarasota County Sheriffs deputy and demolished the back of her vehicle. According to a Sheriffs Ofce report, the deputy was parked in the outside lane southbound on U.S. 41 near Sunrise Drive, speaking with a subject she had pulled over on the side of the road, when the crash occurred. The ofcer was not injured when the driver hit her vehicle early Saturday morning in Venice.

The person driving the vehicle that hit the cruiser was charged with DUI. LITTLECRUISER | 5 Holy coolest car in town, its the Batmobile! Ideal Classic Cars, in South Venice, rarely has a problem attracting the good citizens of the community to its showroom. It routinely has more than a hundred classic vehicles of all types in-house. But one car that arrived on Saturday morning on a large transport truck gar nered an even larger crowd than usual. A replica of the Batmobile that was used in the Batman and Batman Returns movies made a brief stop at the dealership on its way to its new home. Ideal Classic Cars had never displayed the car on its lot before but had acted as the broker between the buyer and the seller on this particular deal. Presently, there are only ve of these cars in existence. We already had it pre-sold to a good customer who we do quite a bit of business with, said Batmans car to revisit this weekBy DEBBIE FLESSNERGONDOLIER SUN CORRESPONDENTBatmobile visits(and its coming back) PHOTOS BY DEBBIE FLESSNERBecause Ideal Classic Cars did not want the wheels to touch the ground, the Batmobile was loaded from the 18-wheeler transport truck onto a atbed trailer upon arriving at the dealership. Transferring the car to the atbed trailer was a delicate operation. The distinctive bat wings on the car are probably its most notable feature.CAR | 8 The city of Venice hedged its bet this week by giving preliminary approval to develop zoning rules on where a medical marijuana business can establish itself, should the constitutional amendment on the Nov. 4 General Election ballot pass. City Attorney David Persson told the Venice City Council on Tuesday, Oct. 14, that its not imperative that new rules be in place by Election Day, since it could take more than a year for legislative-directed regulations to be vetted and adopted. By then, the city will have in place laws that deal with dispensing marijuana for medical purposes, and where businesses that grow medical marijuana can be located. The current plan is to amend an existing city law regulating pain Start thinking of marijuana biz rulesBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR CITY COUNCIL:MARIJUANA | 4This has turned out to be a banner year for sea turtle nesting. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the state is receiving reports of high numbers of loggerhead sea turtle nests. Nesting could prove slightly higher than the 77,975 loggerhead nests reported last year.This was good year for nesting turtlesBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER PROVIDED BY FWCA loggerhead sea turtle pulls itself onto a beach to lay its eggs. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports that this years nesting season appears to be a banner year for nesting loggerheads.For the second time, the Venice City Council voted not to study the consolidation of city and county re departments. A vote taken last month, with council voting against doing a feasibility study, was repeated with the same outcome. The second meeting was held because of concerns of a potential Sunshine violation by a council member at the earlier meeting. That is when it was revealed Council Member Kit McKeon had given a position paper debating another members position to yet another sitting council member ahead of the meeting. The cure meeting was a second chance for some members to make their case in favor of the study this time more forcefully. Mayor John Holic and Council Members Jeanette Gates and Bob Daniels, who support the study, pleaded with members Dave Sherman, Kit McKeon, Emilio Carlesimo and Jim Bennett to change their minds. In the end, nobody did. Holic tied consolidation to the citys unfunded pension liability, which he said remains unresolved.Round 2: Council says noBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITORCOUNCIL | 7 About consolidation:Leaders get heated over pension debt TURTLES | 7 lF, 1Ali d fo i rdo e SunLOCAL NEWS COVER TO COVER FLORIDA'S NO.1 WEEKLY NEWSPAPERk tm01--tidIF-05252 10075 0

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A Trading in old shoes for charity proved even more successful this year during the September discount program of Kathy and Bruce Crisman, owners of Dicks Shoes, 219 W. Venice Ave. The annual campaign resulted in more than 17 large boxes being filled with shoes that the Crismans will take to the Guadalupe Social Services in Immokalee. They will distribute those shoes to the migrant families throughout that area. The Crismans make this special drive regularly throughout the year, not only delivering shoes in all sizes, styles and colors, but also filling their vehicle with food donations gathered from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Parish in Osprey. We will be deliver ing them on Monday, Oct. 20, Kathy Crisman said. Many women brought shoes from their closet first to get a discount and then many more just to give to charity. Again, we thank all those kind people in Venice for your support.Biz promo leads to 172 pairs of donated shoesBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONJennifer Crisman, Bruce and Kathy Crismans daughter-in-law and third-generation shoe store owner, is pictured holding a few of the 172 pairs of mens, womens and childrens shoes to be donated to migrant families.After being featured in promos and on the Americas Got Talent website, The Mothmen are taking off. The group of 12 made up of three women and nine men between the ages of 18 and 35 is led by Englewood resident Jennifer Ragan Kelly and her partner, Jason Whicker. The dance troupe members come from all over the country. They performed in front of an audience of 3,000 during the live taping of Americas Got Talent. Kelly, a mother of three, said she and Whicker quit their jobs to open On The Fly Productions. Since making it into the seminals in Americas Got Talent in late August, the dance troupe has been busy. It also is looking for a manager. After the troupes nearly two-minute performance, during which dancers catapult through the air, the production company has been traveling and attracting new talent. We love to mix together dance, obviously storytelling, and acting, my favorite part of it, Kelly said of the Cirque du Soleil-type act. Nobodys doing it at the level that were doing it. The production company currently has a talent call for a theater festival in November. Kelly also is involved in a production in Bahrain this winter. On the Fly Productions is bringing a huge crew of performers, artists, teachers and actors with us to a big theater festival in November, Kelly said, adding that her company specializes in aerial and ying effects. Kelly said there are always space issues when trying to get studios for her aerial dancers to practice. She currently is looking for space in November in the Indianapolis area, and in Atlanta in mid-January. She would like to swap workshops in ying and aerial, in exchange for space rental.

Persson said he doesnt want to burden staff with that task just yet, since doing so before the election could be a waste of time for staff if it doesnt pass. The bottom line is we will be covered, regardless of which way this goes, Persson said. The rules will be designed to protect citizens from a grow house setting up shop in residential areas, or other non-desirable locations within the city, said Mayor John Holic.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comMARIJUANAFROM PAGE 1 Do what you can to make it work. That was the directive given by the Venice City Council this week to the city manager who asked if Rev3 triathlon organizers can count on the city to host its signature athletic event in the future. We need to do whatever we can to work it out, said an enthusiastic Council Member Bob Daniels. I just think its a very good t for us. He applauded an estimate by Nicole Rissler, director of sports with Visit Sarasota County, that Rev3 events bring in more than $500,000 into the local economy. Daniels cited the successful athletic programs at Venice High School as proof there is room for sports tourism to grow in Venice. We dont have very many opportunities like this using what we already have for infrastructure, said Mayor John Holic. This event turns around and recoups the labor cost. Im very much in favor of seeing what we can do to make this work. City Manager Ed Lavallee said the city will be monitoring closely the Nov. 9 Rev3 event in the city. The single biggest challenge our police force is facing is just managing the trafc at selected intersections, Lavallee said. Rev3 is looking for a home, Lavallee said, and to expand the half revs 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bicycle race, and 13.1 mile foot race with a full triathlon, which is double the distance. Holic asked council if there was anyone opposed to continuing negotiations to expand the Rev3. There were none. Lavallee said he will come back to council after next months Rev3 race to debrief and cement future plans. This year, more than 1,000 people are expected to participate in the Nov. 9 race and other preliminary events, like a kids race and a 5K glow run.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comCouncil welcomes a future with Rev3By GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR Sheriff Tom Knights 5th Annual Corporate SWAT Challenge raised $25,000 for the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. He credits outstanding community support. On Saturday, Oct. 11, 10 teams from area businesses spent the day at Knight Trail Park in Nokomis competing in four tactical events of skill, endurance and strategy. The Corporate SWAT Challenge was designed so participants would have fun in a challenging but team-building atmosphere while raising money for a great cause. Christofferson Fitness took rst place, followed by Daiquiri Deck in second and Mosaic in third. Other competing teams included the Blue Barracudas, Sarasota Dental Group, BMW of Sarasota, New Balance of Sarasota, Dakin Dairy, First Step of Sarasota and Suncoast Motorsports. The event was sponsored by the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Macys, with additional support from Sarasota Trophy, Golf in Venice, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Tampa Bay Rays, Publix Supermarkets, The Ritz-Carlton, TreeUmph!, Lowes, Caragiulos, Nancys BBQ, Owens Fish Camp, Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Fleet Feet, Mollys, Classic Creations, Honest Air of Venice and Lets Jump.

That wasnt the case for the Economic Development Advisory Board (EDAB) Wednesday, when it met to work on guidelines for waiving city fees charged for special events. In the audience were ve out of seven City Council members, several staff members and representatives of four special event sponsors, present to see whether the boards action might cost their nonprot organization money. Although the City Council has long granted waivers of the cost of police and re department stafng, utilities, showmobile rental and the like on a case-by-case, it only recently began to budget for them. This year, the EDAB budget for economic development is $40,000, of which $20,000 could go to waivers. So it got the job of coming up with guidelines. The starting point was a proposal from Mayor John Holic that the city entertain requests for waivers only from 501(c)(3) nonprots. An organization that returns all the event proceeds to the community could ask for a 50 percent waiver up to a maximum of $2,000, while one that uses some of the proceeds for itself would get a smaller percentage. Andrea Cooper, of the Sertoma Club of Venice, suggested that the permit application include a question about what the event proceeds are used for. EDAB member Bob Cushing went further, saying the city needs to know how many attendees are expected and the demographic the event is targeted to so its economic impact can be estimated. These event holders have that information, he said. He recommended that sponsors participate in a post-event review so the use of the funds could be conrmed and suggestions for future events offered. The city already conducts an internal analysis of its performance after every event, City Manager Ed Lavallee said. While Holics proposal was generally acceptable to all the attendees, a major concern is that there be some exibility in the guidelines so that putting on a special event doesnt become so difcult or expensive that sponsors cancel or move them. We are very sensitive to the fact that they bring a lot of benets to the community, Lavallee said. Suggestions for exibility included less-stringent reporting requirements for smaller events, the option to exceed the $2,000 maximum in limited circumstances and possibly a different set of criteria for granting some relief to for-prot events. EDAB Chair Mack Wilcox said he would put all the discussion points into writing for the board to consider at its November meeting. Once approved, the proposed guidelines will go on to the City Council for consideration.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.comConsensus is event fee waivers need flexibilityBy BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITER 5643 Clark Rd., Sarasota Next to Dunkin Donuts @ I-75, exit 205 *Extractions not included.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A Alexandra Coe has as diverse a rsum as youre likely to see in a candidate for political ofce: model, actress, farmer, business owner, anthropologist. Shell nd out Nov. 4 whether she can add county commissioner to it. Coe is running as a nonparty-afliated candidate for the District 2 seat currently held by Joe Barbetta, who is barred by term limits from running again. She faces Paul Caragiulo, the winner of the Republican primary, and write-ins Steve McAllister and Pete Theisen in the General Election. Coe is actually a member of the Libertarian Party, which she represented in an unsuccessful campaign for the Sarasota County Charter Review Board in 2012. I did that to kind of dip my toes in the political waters, she said. This time she decided to run without affiliation to avoid party labels and focus on issues. Im running as the peoples commissioner, she said, adding that she wants to be a catalyst, not an activist. She said she entered the race because shes working on her masters degree thesis on an agriculture-related topic that led her to think she could put her talents, education and experience to use on the commission as it debates changes to the 2050 Plan for managing growth east of Interstate 75, where major parcels of land are agrarian. With the local economy improving, a recent survey of county residents that showed growth, development and trafc not jobs are major concerns. Those are quality of life issues, she said. The key, she said, is to ensure that progress melds with the quaintness that lures people to the area in the rst place. As a Libertarian, she said her viewpoint is that government exists to ensure that behavior in the free market is ethical and responsible, and to provide services its citizens cant do for themselves. Citizens need to feel that the government is working for them and they can trust it. Right now, she said, we dont feel represented. The key to building trust, she said, is devising ways to connect with the silent majority of citizens whose participation in county politics is limited to voting. Part of that, she said, could involve looking at development in new ways more appropriate for an area with an older population. She sees tremendous room for growth in the local organic farming industry. Environmental awareness is no longer a tree-hugging thing, she said, and people are increasingly conscious of the connection between their environment and their health. That, and the fact they pay taxes that go toward infrastructure, gives citizens a right to have their say about how Sarasota County grows.

6A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 As many local residents can attest, it doesnt take a hurricane to cause ooding in South Sarasota County. Heavier-than-normal rain over the last six weeks or so including several days of torrential downpours left standing water all over and had the Myakka River above ood stage. Snook Haven Restaurant and Fish Camp, at the end of East Venice Avenue along the river, was closed for nearly two days, until the water receded from its parking lot. Employees took advantage of the time and the conditions to go kayaking there. Impromptu recreational opportunities aside, rainfall-induced ooding can be as troublesome as high water resulting from storm surge. So Sarasota County is working to identify neighborhoods at higher risk of such ooding in order to consider whether oodrisk mitigation projects are needed. Its part of the countys watershed management program, which is both separate from and unrelated to the revision of Federal Emergency Management Agency ood maps. It wont have an effect on anyones ood insurance either. A workshop Tuesday at the Sandra Sims Terry Community Center in Laurel focused on the Little Sarasota Bay Coastal and Dona/ Roberts Bay Coastal watersheds, which begin in Venice at Center Road and continue north to Caribbean Drive, a mile south of Stickney Point Road. Technology has already identified floodprone zones in the watersheds. The pur pose of the workshop was to give residents a chance to talk about their real-world flood experience, and see if the two sets of data match up. County staff can then evaluate whether there are areas in which the adopted level of service, based on a 100-year storm, isnt being met. If a storm drops 10 inches of rain in a 24-hour period, theres supposed to be no residential flooding or standing water on evacuation routes, according to Scott Woodman, technical specialist with Sarasota County Planning. The standard used to be 8 inches in the same time period until a no-name storm in June 1992 caused widespread flooding countywide, he said. Areas in which the standard cant be met would be considered for improvements possibly larger pipes or enhanced stormwater ponds, paid for from fees the county already collects and a 50-percent match from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. It may even be the case, Woodman said, that a problem turns out to be a maintenance issue that can be addressed right away. But it may also turn out that a fix would be cost-prohibitive in areas in which development predated county regulations and the benefit wouldnt justify the expense. Thats a big challenge we have, he said, adding that what the county learns in this process will still be useful if those areas undergo redevelopment. Another workshop focusing on northern watersheds is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 23, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the County Administration Building, 1600 Tingling Blvd., Sarasota. Staff are planning to present their report and recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners next spring.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.comCounty wants input on rainfall-induced floodingBy BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITER Does your neighbor hood or road flood after a simple, heavy storm?

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A He made the case that pension reform hasnt gone far enough to reduce the liability of unfunded pension from dictating the citys budget. There may be some relief by consolidating with an already well-run county department. We dont have a stabilized pension. Were working to stabilize it. We have not stopped the bleeding, he said. It is about the pension. It is about the pension, he repeated at maximum volume. To turn around and say its not is totally ignoring (the facts). He projected another $1.5 million pension funding shortfall next year and in years to follow, on top of an unfunded liability of $31 million. How can we make a conclusion before we have some facts? We dont know the facts until we do a feasibility study. I cant believe that this council thats worked so hard to get this far is willing to say, I dont care about facts anymore. Im just not doing it. We did that (study) garbage pickup. We nally looked at the facts and stayed with the same garbage pickup. But we did it based on facts, Holic said. Council shouldnt avoid doing the study because the facts may point out we need consolidation, he said. Sherman reiterated his position, shared by the majority, that pension reforms were made with the expectation that further major impacts to city workers wouldnt be made any time soon. I said I am against studying this, and I am, Sherman said. This is not the right time to study it. We agreed to make them whole. That was our decision in order to get out of (negotiations) impasse. I was really mad we would turn our backs on a contract. Holic and Daniels said their recollection of the promise made in executive sessions regarding contract negotiations and pension reform was not to bring the issue up again until after negotiations. That time is now. What youre saying is we should not do anything for three years (when the contract expires) and then start the process, Gates said, Its absolutely shameful. People are shaking their heads and ignoring the facts. I appreciate the mayor getting us red up. I am embarrassed and ashamed if you dont vote for this. This is important. We are the leaders of this community. We represent our constituents. We are not the (representative) of the unions. Not addressing this to kick the can down the road is not the answer. If we ignore it, it will not make it disappear; it will only snowball. Carlesimo said he didnt hear anything new during the discussion and didnt plan on changing his mind. He challenged the mayors premise that a pension problem even exists. I dont think we have a big problem, said Carlesimo, a retired reghter. We made drastic changes to the pension, to health care and brought things under control. We also agreed we would wait a while to see how it affects budgeting. If there is a problem, it isnt one we have to deal with immediately. Bennett said the questions of re con solidation and pension debt was best handled separately. We are mixing apples and oranges, Bennett said. The apple is how much we might save the city; if we would save money for the taxpayers. The orange is how we manage the pension liability. I am not inter ested in taking a bite of the apple, when we need to peel away part of the orange to see whats in there.Email: ggiles@venicegondolierCOUNCILFROM PAGE 1 The healthy nesting season especially for nesting on Manasota Key and Knight, Don Pedro and Little Gasparilla islands is not surprising. Its been a very rare season this year for a few reasons, said Zoe Bass, who, with Wilma Katz, is a primary permit holder overseeing Coastal Wildlife Club volunteer sea turtle patrols on Manasota Key. First, we had the highest nesting numbers since 1998, with 3,261 nests on approximately 14 miles of beach on Manasota Key in Charlotte and Sarasota counties. On top of great nest numbers, we had an extremely calm storm season with very few damaged nests due to rough Gulf water. Locally, the nesting season, primarily for loggerheads, extends from May 1 to Oct. 31. Statewide, the ofcial nesting season begins earlier, March 1, when nesting leatherbacks are expected to pull themselves onto Atlantic beaches. Green sea turtles nest later in the season. Simona Ceriani oversees the FWC research index beaches program, which includes more than 190 linear miles of Florida beaches. The preliminary numbers on index beaches, Ceriani said, are encour aging. Last year, index beaches reported 44,810 nests; this year, 46,885 nests. By the end of November, the FWC will gather nesting numbers from around the state. The FWC expects to conrm and release those counts in January. The increases in loggerhead nesting numbers is especially noteworthy since the numbers dropped signicantly after 1998 and have only started to increase in the last six years, according to FWC research. On Little Gasparilla Island, Linda Soderquist, the state permit holder, said, We had the most nests (155 loggerheads and one green sea turtle nest) since 2000, when we had 177 nests. After 2000, the nesting numbers decreased to a low of 76 nests in 2010. On Knight and Don Pedro islands, Brenda Bossman reported an estimated 400 nests along a three-mile stretch of beach. Only a few years ago we were extremely worried about the loggerhead turtles survival as we watched the trends in their nesting numbers continue to drop, she said. The number of nests, however, doesnt reect the number of newly hatched turtles emerging from nests. A loggerhead female will nest in twoor three-year cycles. The females lay four to seven nests per season and will deposit 100 to 126 eggs per nest. A new study of the 11-year trend of nesting, FWC researcher Anne Meylan said, determined that 51.6 percent of loggerhead hatchlings are expected to emerge from those nests. And then there are losses to predation and disorientation due to articial lighting. On Little Gasparilla island, coyotes, armadillos and raccoons preyed on nests, Soderquist said. That wasnt the only problem. On new moon nights, the sky is very dark, except where we see sky glow in the north (from Englewood and Placida), she said. Nearly all of our disorientations found hatchlings traveling north, parallel to the beach, never reaching the water. Coastal Wildlife Club board member Carol Leonard said, Most people dont realize that Manasota Key has the highest density of nesting turtles anywhere on the Gulf Coast of Florida. What we all do here is vitally important for the survival of these species.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comTURTLESFROM PAGE 1 Carpet Tile Hardwood Vinyl Center Rd.

8A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 Michael Lombardo, who owns the dealership with his wife, Evelyn. She and her son have a Scooby Doo van, and were seeking other cars for them, too. She just loves the movie cars. The new owner, who pre ferred to not only remain anonymous but also to not address the press, is from Oklahoma and does not keep her collector cars in a museum she has them for her familys own personal use. But Lombardo said that she does host charity events at her home and allows the cars to be seen. Though the Batmobile, and other vehicles like it, are novelty items requiring a special buyer, there is a large market for classic cars that are in great condition. Thats where Lombardos expertise in matching cars and buyers comes in. We look for the most de sirable cars but we can nd almost anything, he said. Weve been in business for 33 years and have developed great relationships with private owners. This owner (who previously had the Batmobile) happened to be a customer of ours who was getting rid of a few cars, and this was one of them. Next on the Batmobiles new owners list to nd an A-Team van, a Green Hornet car and a Back to the Future car. Lombardo said hes condent he can nd those, too. Though the car was picked up from Ideal Classic Cars shortly after it was dropped off and taken to a costume party in Naples, it will be reappearing on the same bat channel Thursday or Friday, until probably Saturday, when the buyer will likely be taking it to its permanent home. To take a look at the super-sleek vehicle, visit Ideal Classic Cars at 2224 South Tamiami Trail in Venice. While there, you can visit the 27,000-square-foot classic car and memorabilia museum, in which most everything is also for sale. For more information, call 941-966-1999 or visit: PAGE 1 The Batmobile replica arrived on Saturday morning for a brief stay at Ideal Classic Cars in Venice. On the side of the Batmobile is a Plexiglas-encased set of bullets because you never know when youre going to need those. PHOTOS BY DEBBIE FLESSNERThough the car itself runs on a Chevy engine, there is a jet turbine engine in the back. The city of Venice didnt take home a major award in its rst year of competition in the prestigious America in Bloom national beautication program but it did walk away with a special mention for its environmental efforts. Top honors were announced at the annual awards held in Philadelphia on Oct. 4. Bob Vedder, the Venice Area Beautication Inc. representative who attended the awards ceremony, led a yearlong effort to beautify the city. He called it a learning experience. We got a four-star rating, but I think you and I think were a ve-star city, Vedder told the City Council. I dont play for second place. The City Council agreed to support participation in the program next year but wont decide on a budgetary contribution, if any, until after a group of stakeholders, assuming VABIs future sponsorship, get together to come up with plan on how to proceed. Vedder had a number of recommendations, like involving more people, since the effort to beautify the city was largely left in the hands of VABI volunteers and city public works staff. He suggested enlisting the help of students. Council Member Jim Bennett recommended enlisting homeowner associations. Council Member Emilio Carlesimo said its possible a partnership with area businesses, in the form of a Business Investment District that taxes themselves, could add signicantly to the effort and raise tens of thousands of dollars toward the cause. The cities that were successful have something like that, Vedder said. They have some form of taxing district. Vedder also suggested the city adopt a city ower, like Hibiscus, and better promote Venices niche as the Sharks Tooth Capital of the World. Better entrances to the city, like North Port has on U.S. 41 from the north, would help, he added. The city received kudos on community involvement for its ability to mobilize volunteers, and judges were astounded to learn the city has 42 parks, Vedder said, but it fell short in the forestry category for its lack of a tree ordinance that promotes plantings. It also didnt place in the heritage preservation category. Vedder chalked that up to a paperwork snafu. The city was supposed to be entered in that category by awards program staff, he said, but it wasnt. Lesson learned, Vedder said. Next year, the city needs to enter itself in each category. Participants were evaluated on six criteria: overall impression, environmental awareness, heritage preservation, urban forestry, landscaped areas, and oral displays. Additionally, they were judged on their community involvement across municipal, residential, and commercial sectors. Competing against Venice in the 19,001 to 24,000 population category were Calabasas, Calif., which won with a ve bloom rating, Portsmith, Ohio, and Madisonville, Ky. Venice received a four bloom rating and a special mention for its efforts in environmental awareness. America in Bloom is the only national awards program that sends specially trained judges to personally visit participants and provide a detailed written evaluation that can be used as a guide to future improvements.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comVenice recognized in America in Bloom awardsBy GREG GILESNEWS EDITOR PROVIDED PHOTOBob Vedder presents America In Blooms Special Mention Award for Environment Eorts to Venice Mayor John Holic.BATMOBILE TO COME BACKThe Batmobile will be back at Ideal Classic Cars at 2224 South Tamiami Trail in Venice on Thursday or Friday for the public to view and will be staying there until Saturday, at which point the buyer will pick it up.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A A mother was arrested after she dragged her daughter into the house by her ponytail to complete her homework. According to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Office report: The daughter asked if she could take a shower before completing her assigned homework around 10 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 9. They argued until the mother allegedly swatted the girl on the buttocks with a flexible three-ring binder. When the daughter went outside to speak to her father, she opened the door fast and hard, knocking her mother to the ground. The daughter then exited the residence, but was escorted back inside by the mother, who grabbed her by the hair. The father ran into the house to stop the incident. The defendant allegedly rushed at him. He hit her in the chest, knocking her onto a small table. The defendant barely over 5 feet tall, weighing 83 pounds got up and allegedly went after the husband a second time. When police showed up, she was cooperative, but not with the husband and daughter.

BUSINESS MATTERSCONTACT US ROGER BUTTON BUSINEWS COLUMNIST SUN NEWSPAPERS 10A WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 15, 2014The Cycle of Life is a two-day, 200-plus-mile cycling event across the state of Florida. For one local cyclist it was his longest ride ever. The event is a challenge inspired by Tony McEachern, a Sarasota resident who was diagnosed with brain cancer about 10 years ago and given two years to live. He fought the disease and is still live today. His Team Tony Cancer Foundation sponsors the Cycle of Life, now in its sixth year. Jim Stalnaker, a clinical laboratory medical technologist at Venice Regional Bayfront Health who has always enjoyed cycling and recently has been participating in cycling events, decided to accept the challenge. I did not do this for any specic person, but for the organization as a whole and personally for a physical challenge, he said. We have several acquaintances that have fought or are ghting cancer. At the start of October, following months of training, he and 59 other enthusiastic cyclists boarded a bus for the journey to Ormond Beach. Their cycles were carefully transported in escorting trailers. At 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, they began the days 108-mile ride, which took them through the Ocala National Forest. They had split into groups based upon their speed. If a rider encountered a at tire, the group stopped. During that day there were four at tires in Stalnakers group. Arriving at mid-after noon seven and a half hours later in Clermont, they had climbed Sugarloaf Mountain, at 312 feet the highest point in peninsular Florida. Starting the next morning at 7:15 a.m., they rode 110 miles to Lakewood Ranch, completing the journey in the early afternoon. They were greeted by a tumultuous reception and street party. Stalnaker was especially pleased to be met by his daughter, Jenna, son, Jimmy, and wife, Julia, a nancial planner and adviser with Raymond James on East Venice Avenue. Stalnaker raised $1,020 in donations from local businesses, friends and family. Some riders raised more than $10,000 for the Team Tony Foundation, which pairs a cancer survivor with a cancer ghter to provide the support. Each participant paid $300 for the bus ride and hotels, and the food was donated by one of the participants.Email: rogerbutton@verizon.net200 miles on a bike to fight cancerBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST COURTESY PHOTOJim Stalnaker is greeted by his daughter, Jenna, after completing the grueling Cycle of Life.

Brew Burgers Pub and Grill is opening a second location, at 525 South Tamiami Trail, next to Publix in the Venice Shopping Center, across from the hospital. I want people to walk in and recognize this as BrewBurgers, said Michael Bacon, coowner with wife, Liz, and Dennis and Sara Sacco. This will be just like our original location. Customers will instantly feel comfortable with the wood, brick and steel interior with which they are familiar. With all the businesses, the hospital and the high school nearby, he is expecting a lot of takeout and delivery orders. Making that a priority, the restaurant will have an ADA-compliant counter and cabinet for carryout meals. BrewBurgers biggest attraction is cooking in front of customers. Chefs work against a glistening all-steel wall around the cooking area. This will be replicated for the new location, with a unique new feature: big pipes dropping from the ceiling to dispense beer through taps along the bar. Bacon expects to have seating for 35 people, including eight at stools at the 20-foot-long bar. Plans are to have four sets of banquette-style seating, with tables for two, four, six or eight diners. Projected to open before season, the restaurant will initially operate the same hours as the original location: from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., weekends serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their menu concept is not just based upon cooking a burger, but creating a consistent products with items freshly prepared as they would be in the home. If we do 300 meals in a day, at least 100 of those are something other than burgers, Bacon said. We have BrewBurger house salads, basa sh, shrimp and poboy sandwiches, and our own top round beef is roasted for ve to six hours. The owners decided to open this new location because it is far enough away to not hurt their existing business, but close enough to be where a lot of people have heard the name. There are three important things making BrewBurgers successful, Bacon said. It has to be a dinner and show by the staff being happy and having fun joking around with customers. Anyone can make a burger, but we have a secret recipe. And finally, we make sure every customer walking out of the door has a smile on their face. A family business, it opened in 2011 at 370 Commercial Court near the I-75 Jacaranda inter change. In 2012 Dennis and Sara Sacco were invited to replace two of the original owners. They currently employ 30 and anticipate having 20 more employees at the island location. Bacon has more than 20 years experience in the restaurant business. He owned a steakhouse in New York, and then for six years owned the Ski Moon River Tavern in Stockbridge, Vt. Moving to Venice, he worked at the Crows Nest for three years and then was invited to participate in setting up and operating BrewBurgers. The location acquisition was managed by Brooke MiltonGrundvig, commercial associate with Merritt Realty Corporation in Nokomis.Email: rogerbutton@verizon.netAward-winning BrewBurgers opening on islandBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONMichael and Liz Bacon review the plans for their second BrewBurgers Pub & Grill location, on the island of Venice. 11`iTrrlllllit M,nta r .


WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A As long ago as the late 1980s, it was obvious to Sue Covington that in general terms, the lives of wives were changing. Moving from Lexington, Ky., to the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wis., with her children, she was working part-time. It was an era when it was tough to get money if you were single, she recalled. Doing part-time work in a downtown building, she saw Merry Maids in action. Investigating the companys policies and operation, she decided it was a good investment and continues to feel the same way today. The company was founded in 1979 in Omaha, Neb., by Dallen Peterson. In 1988, Covington went to his home, learning more about the company systems and ethics, then purchased the second franchise for the southwest suburbs in Milwaukee. Within a few months, Peterson sold the company to ServiceMaster. Two years later, she had 10 employees, acquired the adjoining territory in Oak Creek, then the Franklin territory. Five years later, she purchased the Racine County territory, increasing her employees to 20. For 26 years, I have grown the business to 40 staff, and in 1991 my two daughters joined me, she said. My daughter, Cori Gour, bought her own Milwaukee city franchise. Eventually, we purchased a huge building for the home base in Greeneld. Deciding to ease up and take time off, she came to Cape Coral, and loved the area. Her son, Matt Gour, joined her. As snowbirds, they made property investments until making it their permanent home. In 2011, my franchisor invited me to buy all the territory from Estero to North Manatee County, she recalled. Instead of retiring, I invited my son and his wife, Amy, to join and we acquired the Merry Maid ofces in Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and Sarasota. A year later, I decided to open the Venice location. Maintaining and cleaning a home; scrubbing bathrooms, kitchens and oors; dusting and vacuuming are the services provided by Merry Maids, which customizes services to individual needs. Covington believes each age group requires differ ent services and, now as a senior herself, she under stands those needs. From a mom with babies to a working mother or senior, she feels her employees understand those requirements and it is making them so successful. Every woman wants to feel their home is clean. Without that, they feel it is out of control, she said. No matter what age group, it applies. We provide them with not just a service but understand their vulnerability and provide a team whose visit they will look to enjoy. Besides the 40 employ ees in Milwaukee, they employ another 42 in this region. Employees join in special projects. Last fall, they all assisted Mothers Helping Mothers. In the past, Covington and her family started Helping Hands, which became a nationwide Merry Maids project to prevent domestic violence. Each ofce collected cash and informed the public of this problem, which goes across all barriers. Venice, being the new ofce, is growing and we have eight employees, Covington said. Merry Maids is growing and we will open more ofces in Fort Myers and Bradenton. I see us having a little boutique ofce in downtown Sarasota. The territory starts at Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota, then goes south to Osprey, Nokomis and Venice. They share Englewood and North Port with their Port Charlotte ofce. We hire people we consider trustworthy, responsible and like cleaning, she said. All employees have background checks and drug tests. Many of our employees that started 23 years ago are still a part of our business, in particular the managers in Wisconsin. The Covington family created their own theme We make paradise sparkle believing it symbolizes the ethics of Merry Maids. Throughout the United States, Merry Maids Corporate operates 1,351 franchise and corporate-owned territories. Merry Maids ofce is at 722 E. Venice Ave. and is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; call 941-882-3085.Merry Maids growing quickly in Venice areaBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINEWS COLUMNIST PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONSue Covington (left), senior franchisor of Merry Maids and owner of her Bee Smart brightly painted, customized Smart car, stands with her daughter-in-law, Amy Gour, the company sales manager. In a tightly fought contest, Alan Laskowski, the owner of Blu Island Bistro, was crowned 2014 Venice MainStreet Iron Chef on Sunday before a crowd of more than 200 guests at Fins at Sharkys Restaurant Emcee John Holic introduced the 7th annual challenge in which the following local chefs compted: Joel Sandinha of Caf Venice, Jorge Martinez of Daiquiri Deck, Eric Eastes of Snook Haven and Laskowski of Blu Island Bistro.

Lic# 14016 MM14015 Many people strive to increase the benefit they derive from walking and running by carrying hand weights or wearing ankle weights. Indeed, carrying the extra weight does increase oxygen consumption and heart rate, as well as build muscle strength. Those who burn 400 calories per hour by walking four miles an hour can expect to burn an additional 10% (40 calories) by carrying two one-pound weights. While carrying two five-pound weights will increase caloric output by perhaps 40%, carrying greater weight increases the risk of injury to the elbows and shoulders. As for ankle weights, any increase in caloric output associated with their use is more than offset by the added risk of ankle and foot injury. P.S. Wearing ankle weights while walking or running can distort proper form as well as throw balance off.

OUR VIEWHomeless initiative gets much needed boostOn Oct. 7, the Sarasota County Commission approved a shift in funding to allow a critical segment of the South County homelessness project to go forward. The action itself was, for all intents and purposes, a bureaucratic function amending an action plan and reallocating block grant funds. But it was a signicant step. It highlighted the cooperative effort of local governments that dont always work together as smoothly as wed wish. It demonstrated an extraor dinary level of coordination among regional social service agencies, nonprots and faith-based organizations. And it combined public tax funding and private donations to meet an acknowledged community need: the welfare of families experiencing extreme difculties when coping with a basic necessity of human life. It is a commendable achievement that deserves special note. More than a year ago, Sarasota County hired San Antonio-based consultant Robert Marbut to analyze the homelessness problem here. Among other things, Marbut suggested opening a shelter for the chronically homeless in or near downtown Sarasota. That aspect of the Marbut Plan stalled. But there were other critical recommendations in the plan. Among them was Marbuts insistence that the various agencies serving the homeless work together in a single, unied case management process. He recommended the creation of intake portals. He recommended smaller-scaled family homeless shelters in South County to meet the document need here. A small intake portal and family shelter recently opened in northern Sarasota County. Another is being built at the North Port Family Service Center in space leased from the city of North Port. That facility will be leased and run by Catholic Charities. It will accommodate overnight family stays. In addition, four to six nearby homes will be built and refurbished for families needing housing for several weeks. The targeted houses are vacant and in foreclosure. They will cost $55,000$75,000, but will need signicant rehabilitation, said Jon Thaxton, the director of community investments for Venice-based Gulf Coast Community Foundation. Getting these home xed up and lled will be good for needy individuals and also good for the neighborhood. Overall, Thaxton said, the intake portal, the housing and the new case management system will give us an efcient, more comprehensive way to serve more families. It will help families get on their feet again and get off the cycle of homelessness. As for the money involved, Sarasota County shifted $540,000 for the initial North Port effort. The ongoing expense to the county is expected to be $100,000 annually here, but Catholic Charities will contribute another $200,000. Thaxton also announced that Gulf Coast Community Foundation had pledged to match the countys investment. This is an extraordinary display of generosity from the foundation, nonprots and faith-based organizations. To get to this point took a remarkable level of planning, coordination and execution by civic leaders, both in the private and public sector. Its truly noteworthy. Your time to vote in Best of Venice is shortIts our busiest time of the year over here at the Venice Gondolier Sun as we are counting the Best of Venice ballots, putting together our rst Chalk Festival piece and started selling our signature publication, Discover Venice. Everyone who gets our product at home should be familiar with the Best of Venice ballots and how the program works. So here is a friendly reminder to pull them out from under the refrigerator magnet, make your choices and get them to our ofce before the 5 p.m. deadline on Tuesday, Oct., 21. Our staff is standing by to process your votes. We are proud to be sponsor ing the Sarasota Chalk Festival that is being held in Venice for the rst time this year. One of the things we have on our plate as sponsors of this event is the creation of the Event Guide. This handy magazine will be distributed in our Sun Coast Media Group products across the region and at the event itself. This is an incredible opportunity for those business owners who want to tell their story to a bigger chunk of the market and the people attending the Chalk Festival. This Friday, Oct. 17, is the nal day to get your space reserved, so contact your sales rep now for a spot in our rst Chalk Festival Guide. Our Discover Venice magazine is opening its pages for ad reservations. Delivered in November of this year and February of next year, this magazine is the highlight of our magazine stable. Our reps are always proud and excited to extend an offer for the valuable pages of Discover Venice and asked that I remind you that they were coming to see you about Discover. All this activity leads us to the 3rd Annual Best of Venice Banquet/Celebration to be held in January of next year. We have been working on some things to add to the upcoming festivities, and I am stunned at how it just keeps getting better each year. Our Best of Venice nalists look forward to the gathering, and I cant remind you enough how important you are in this process. If you have not lled out a ballot, you have time to do so and get them in to us. History has shown that often one vote determines the outcome in a category. Shifting gears for a minute or two, I thought I would share with you some information concerning an incredible perfor mance I witnessed while visiting at Sharkys On The Pier. Ill admit I knew we were going specically see a young lady sing a few songs. What I did not realize until the moment she began her solo performance was the powerful sound that she would produce. Her rst song caught me off guard as I was not expecting to hear such a strong and beautiful voice come from this child. I sat there for a couple of songs trying to match her magical sound with any other female artists I have heard and could not. By the third song, I gave up and thought to myself, her voice is unique, her delivery is near perfect and we are going to see this young lady on bigger stages as her career develops. If you get a chance to see her perform, dont turn it down. Her name is Emily Cage and in this area she is certainly one of the Best that Venice has to offer. Tim Smolarick is the publisher of the Venice Gondolier Sun.WOULD YOU SUPPORT A TAX INCREASE TO PAY OFF THE CITYS PENSION LIABILITY?

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. Try A New Layout. Regarding your parking problem in downtown Venice, has anyone considered the reconguration of the municipal parking lot, also known as the maze? Parking space could be at least doubled with some careful thought. Another idea regarding Call to Action: it is not a Catholic organization. Arent There Better Bus Stops? Id like to sound off about buses stopping on highways in the morning during rush hour. On U.S. 41 at 55 mph, the school bus pulls over in the stream of trafc to stop to load kids onto a bus. As the bus is loading, the parents of the kids that are being dropped off are rushing in front of the school bus onto the highway to beat the bus. I think theres a much safer way for them to go around the block to pick up kids than to pick them up on a main highway. Thats my beef for the day and every morning when I drive to Sarasota for work. No Park On Snake Island. Should Snake Island be made into a county park? Absolutely not. This is a method of foisting the economic burden of Snake Island onto to Sarasota County and hence, the taxpayers of this county. It should not be allowed to happen! This is a federal piece of land. They are responsible for it and they should continue to be responsible no matter what theyve recently spent to stabilize the area. This is still their responsibility. Lets keep it that way and keep the federal dollars maintaining it, and not our county tax dollars. Jail Wont Cure Her. Im 80 years old and have had dogs most of my life. I guess you could call me a pet lover. Im reading an article on the front page of the Venice Gondolier Sun with a headline of Dog-strangler gets 2 years in prison. Makes an interesting headline, but when one gets into the story its very obvious that the young person who was involved in this has some sort of a mental health problem. Whether putting this person in jail for two years with this mental health problem will result in some kind of improvement in her behavior and will deter other people from harming their pets is very questionable. This mental health problem will not be helped by incarceration. Bridge To Snake Island. Should Snake Island be made into a park? Absolutely, and the park should be made for bicyclists only. If they can build a bridge over 41, Im sure there are millions lying around for a bicycle bridge to Snake Island. I speak for the majority when I say it bothers me a great deal when I see people out there laughing, smiling and having fun. I know bicyclists would never do that. News Was All Wet. I called in at 9 oclock this morning. My paper was soaking wet and not double-bagged. It is now 4 oclock and I have not received the paper yet. I think the circulation manager has to have a little meeting with some of his carriers. This is the third time Ive had to call in because the paper has been soaking wet. Needless to say, I will not renew my subscription. Dont Sneak In Shredding. Ive been a regular subscriber for over 20 years and Im pretty upset about todays paper. On page 7A in Saturdays paper, it said there were four hours of free shredding offered today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce. What good was that being printed in Saturdays paper with no advance notice? Editors Note: We did not learn of the free shredding in time to get the news in an earlier paper. But we did place it online and on our Facebook page a few days prior. Pedestrians Are Just As Bad. Besides the 95 percent of bicyclists who do not wait for the walk light, are they going to be watching for the pedestrians, the 98 percent, who dont wait for the walk light? Pay Your Fair Share. I have a comment on the special-event fee policy: I support the proposed fee policy of the Economic Development Advisory Board in regard to limiting waivers granted to nonprots. The nonprots should pay their fair share of the fees and not expect the taxpayers to pick up the slack. My next remark is about the two-day retreat in Tampa. Im shocked by the waste of dollars spent on a two-day retreat in Tampa. Surely, it could have been held in Venice and every one could have slept in their own beds, saving the taxpayers some money and helping out our local businesses. I think its a shame that Mayor Holic isnt more sensitive to the needs of the taxpayers and how he spends our money. Editors Note: The retreat was authorized by City Manager Ed Lavallee, not the mayor. City Council members did not attend it.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A Better Spent On Arena. We build it and they will come and bring revenue to the city of Venice. Yes, I am referring to the historic Circus Arena. We could be funneling our money into rebuilding the arena so it could be used for events so people can come and pay money, which will fund the city. Then we wouldnt be wasting the citys money by spending $11,000 for a two-day retreat in Tampa. Not smart. That money could have been set aside to help rebuild the arena. Its interesting how they can come up with all kinds of money for their fun and retreat, but cant find a single dollar to help rebuild an historical monument. Shame on you all.

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS GOLF HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEY BALLNot even a heavy rain that fell over the nal stages of Tuesdays Class 3A-District 14 tournament at Mission Valley Country Club could keep the Venice Lady Indians golf team from winning their fourth consecutive district title. From start to nish, I thought it was one of our most complete rounds this year, Venice head coach James Slaton said. We were very solid with our score from top to bottom. Venice junior Victoria Cangero shot an even-par 72, her best career score for an 18-hole event. Her one-stroke individual victory over Manatee senior and former individual state champion Gianna Tomeo gave Cangero her rst individual district crown. When the rain began falling over the nal two holes of the event, Cangero had one thought: Lets get done. I was mainly focused on hitting one shot at a time and keeping my head in the game, said Cangero, who was truly playing a home match since shes a member at Mission Valley. The mental aspect has been a problem for me lately, and I just focused on it. When you focus on your shots and black out the conditions while youre over the ball, it helps you execute and do well. It means a lot to win it, but Im even more proud of myself for keeping my head in it and playing a solid round. Celia Lau shot an 84 for Venice, followed by Allyson Guthrie with an 86 and Brittany Clipse with an 87. Victorias score really got us out of the gate, and like always, everybody else was bunched up there in the 80s, Slaton said. That consistency is something weve always prided ourselves on and thats what really has won a lot of matches for us over the last several years. Venices performance gave them a 28-stroke win over Manatee. Lakewood Ranch took the nal transfer team spot to the regional after shooting a 364. North Port nished sixth in the eld with a 518. The Lady Bobcats were led by Alyssa Chippendales 106. On our home course with a chance to win our fourth straight district and we shoot a 329, Slaton said. Im very excited for these girls to get a chance to go to regionals for the fourth straight year. Weve challenged our girls this year by playing them in some really tough environments, so I think they were very condent and relaxed coming home for the district tournament. The win sets up the Lady Indians for their third straight trip to the FHSAA State Finals in two weeks. Slaton said that his team is already very familiar with Bradenton Country Club, site of Mondays regional tournament. Were pretty condent going in, but ultimately its about us continuing to get better and hopefully us playing our best round of the year on Monday. Cangero said the team needs to keep riding the wave of momentum thats taken the team to so many wins this year. I feel like we need to keep this up and keep playing and put up a solid score in regionals so were feeling good going into states and do the best we possibly can, she said.Email: slockwood@venicegondolier.comGIRLS CLASS 3A-DISTRICT 14 TOURNAMENT at Mission Valley CC, Nokomis (par 72) Team scores: 1.

North Port: Alyssa Chippendale 106, Tia Bussard 119, Vinny Morgan 130, Siara Dietz 163.In Venice Indians coach Brian Wheatleys 21 years as the head of the volley ball program, he never intentionally started all his seniors for Senior Night. Well there is a rst time for everything and in Tuesday nights match against the Lakewood Ranch Mustangs, Wheatley only played his seven seniors during the rst set. Seniors Julia Shea, Gen Beaumier, Lauren Matmuller, Koree Ream, Brook Bezdek, Jaclyn Dinenberg and Abby Waddill set the tone for a 25-15, 25-23, 25-16 sweep of the Mustangs to move the Indians record to 18-1. I have never done that before in my time here, Wheatley said. I did it this time because I have condence in my players and trust in their level of play. Its so awesome for us, Ream said. Its what Ive been waiting for. Its like playing with family. In the rst set, Venice and Lakewood Ranch traded points until Venice took a 2-1 lead they would never relinquish. Every senior got in the act from the service stripe as the Indians allowed the Mustangs to score consecutive points during the set once. The seven of us have great communication and knew we could execute the way we should, Beaumier said. Well get to play again but we may not get a chance to all play together at the same time. All seven of us know what to expect from each other, Waddill said. We really trust each other. We have great chemistry and energy tonight, Shea added. We had so much fun and there was no negative energy. In the second set, Wheatley went with his regular rotation but the Mustangs responded. While the rst set saw the Indians dominate from start to nish, the Mustangs used a stout block defense to stie the Indians offense. They (Lakewood Ranch) raised their level of intensity in the second set and we stayed at the same level, Wheatley said. It took a while but we nally got there. The Mustangs led 7-6 before Venice scored the next three points to take a 9-6 lead. Lakewood Ranch responded behind the blocking and scoring of Kahlee York and Nicole Grant. They fell behind 13-10 before running off four points in a row to take a 14-13 lead. After a kill by Beaumier knotted the game at 14, the Mustangs picked up where they left off and led 20-16 before a Venice timeout. Those are situations that we prepare for in practice, Dinenberg said. We are ready for those situations and are used to it. Venice fought to stay in the set but couldnt close the gap on the Mustangs. Lakewood Ranch led 23-21 and looked as if they were about to put the game away. Down 23-22, the teams rallied and made spectacular plays to ght for the point. Finally, a kill by Beaumier allowed the Indians to tie the set. Venice scored the next two points and closed the set out on an ace by Dinenberg. That game we showed more intensity and came together, Matmuller said. Any team can play from in front but the good teams ght through adversity. That helps us prepare for the postseason, Beaumier said. All of the games wont be easy and at some point you have to come back and compete. In the third set, the Mustangs got off to a slow start as the hangover from losing the second set was still fresh in their minds. Venice jumped out to an 8-1 lead and never looked back in winning 25-16. The seniors were happy to have a moment like this win to take with them. This is a game and moment we will cherish for the rest of our lives, Bezdek said. We had fun and got to play with our six best friends. On Thursday, the Indians host Stuart Martin County, another one of the states volleyball powerhouses. This game will set the stage for the postseason, Beaumier said. We have played Martin County before, and they will be great competition. Usually our district games arent that tough but we know the rest of the playoffs will have higher intensity, Waddill said. Games like this will prepare us for later.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 SUN NEWSPAPERS 15A Mighty Mites: Venice Vikings Kings 20, Port Charlotte 13 The Venice Vikings Kings played their last regular season home game last Saturday against Port Charlotte. The game was a highly contested match against two evenly matched teams with the Kings coming on top, 20-13. The rst score of the game came by the Kings Carter Dalton on a sweep around the right side for a 12-yard touchdown. Port Charlotte scored in the second quarter, making it 6-6. Midway through the second quarter, quarter back Brady Robertson connected on an 8-yard pass to Dalton for the second score of the game for the Kings. Thomas Chace kicked the extra point, making the score 14. Late in the third quarter, Port Charlotte scored and converted the extra point, making the score 14-13. Midway through the fourth quarter, the Kings put a long and time-consuming drive together, scoring Chase on a 5-yard touchdown run, making the score 20-13. The Kings defense was forced to make one last stand as time ran out on Port Charlotte. The Kings defense was led by Luke Jaques. Connor Arnild and James Warman. I want to take time and thank Ken Kenkaid, Stephen Seeds, Sean Walter, Mike Jaques and Mayo Dalton for their time, effort and dedication week after week teaching these kids, Kings coach Robby Robertson said. It has been a pleasure of mine to help these kids grow stronger mentally and physically while enjoying the game of football. Always be the Hammer not the Nail. Jr. Peewee: Venice Vikings Knights 34, Port Charlotte 0 The Knights ended their season at home by beating the Port Charlotte Bandits, 34-0. Martin Ramos, Carson Smith and Luke Wheatley scored touchdowns for the offense. Kaleb Slaton, Brennan Smith, Dalton Peacock, Matthew Peavley, David Raney, Jonathan Simmons, Noah Foster, Alijah Fissel, Tyler Kisgen, Hays Hogan, Domenic Franks, Brian Williams and Austin De Brun created huge holes for Eric Beck, Cato GloverTerry and Damon Wilson to run through all game. The defense recorded two defensive touchdowns. Jackson Fleming picked off a Bandit pass and ran 60 yards for a score. Gianluca DeMasi recorded a sack, caused a fumble and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown. The defensive was led by John Whitney, Olivia Sleight, Jake Swartz, Teddy Chace, Carson Beard, Jacob Papantonakis, Larry Shannon, Michael Peavley, Anthony Maldonado, Cameron Berg and Caden Peters. The Knights nished the regular season with a 6-2 record. Coach Jeff Beck wanted to give a big thanks to all his coaches, including Chris Peters, Mike Raney, Damon Wilson, Tim Fleming, Bill Chace, Jason Swartz and Larry Shannon and team mom Tiffany Foster. He also wanted to thank the Knights cheer for all their hard work this season and to the parents and especially the Knights football team for a great season. Peewee: Port Charlotte 31, Venice Vikings Lancers 16 The Lancers closed out their season with a hard fought 31-16 loss to Port Charlotte. Aiden Beechy threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Glenn Simes to get the Lancers on the scoreboard. Great blocking was provided up front by Caleb Holton, Owen Patton, Jaxson Zweigler, Brandon Kotti, Luke Sleight and Ethan Beck. Simes converted on the extra point. The defense played strong in the second half. Austin Munsell, Hayden Rose and Daniel Childs came up with some key tackles. The next possession, the Lancers offense marched down the eld and Jacob Koss scored after diving over the left side for the touchdown. The defense held the Bandits and forced a turnover on downs. On the ensuing offensive drive, Beechy made some great passes and Koss made the catches. The drive fell short, and the Lancers defense took the eld, stopping the Bandits from scoring after the Bandits called time out with 42 seconds left and trying to score from the Lancers 10-yard line despite up 31-16. Jr. Midget: Port Charlotte 33, Venice Vikings Crusaders 9 The Crusaders ended their season on a losing note. Highlights were Tanner Nicol running the ball hard, Cettei scoring the lone touchdown, and Brock McDonnell kicking a 29yard eld goal. Miller had another great game leading in defensive tackles. Midget: Venice Vikings Warriors 44, Englewood Cougars 0 The Englewood Cougars were shut out 44-0 after one of the Warriors rst full weeks of practice this season. After a scrimmage between the Warriors and Cougars at the beginning of the season, Warriors coach Sal Mineo could tell exactly how far this team has come this year and was extremely pleased with the progress of every player. The Warriors came out hot with rst quarter touchdowns from Ethan St. Pierre and quarterback Trevor Hedges. Carson Sullivan added another scramble as did St. Pierre to put points on the board in the second quarter. Scott Schenke did an excellent job with extra points the entire night. The defense aggravated the Cougars endlessly and the score at the half was 31-0. The offensive line dominated, allowing Hedges to engineer two second half scoring drives that were culminated by Charles Juracsik and Payton Smith. Smith usually plays center but was given the chance to run the ball for the rst time as a fullback. Behind some excellent blocking by the offensive line, Smith was able to score from 10 yards out on his second career run. An excellent defensive performance was given by Rischnyder Metayer, who led the team in tackles. The Warriors have clenched a playoff berth and will play next Saturday in non-conference play in Sarasota while the rest of the Vikings have a bye week, in preparation for the rst round.Vikings take three games from southern rivalsSTAFF REPORT Photo ProvidedVenice Vikings Kings player Alvin Johnson (with ball) tries to nd a way around would-be Port Charlotte tacklers during last weekends game. rff rfntbbnn rfrfntttbfb bnr fbntbbrf brffntnb nnrffntnb fn r 50470131 YOUTH PLAY FREE with each paid adult round (Ages 17 and under) Thru October. 31, 2014 Not valid with other offers. 7-Day Advance Tee Times (941) 423-6955 $ 29 before 7:30am $150 $ 39 between 7:30am-12pm $ 29 after 12pm $ 149 $ 99 4 EXP. 10/31/14.

16A SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 Coming off back-to-back blowout wins over Dixie Hollins and Sarasota, the Venice Indians will have one thing on their mind as they enter their toughest test of the season so far when they travel to district rival Largo Friday night they want to snap the Packers 38-game district winning streak. Theyve won the district title for the last 10 years, so we denitely have a huge challenge in front of us, Venice head coach John Peacock said. Were going to approach it like any other game. I feel like weve got a good game plan for them. Venice (7-0, 1-0, #5 in 6A and #23 overall in the state of Florida) will also be looking for revenge after Largo took a dramatic win at Powell-Davis Stadium that sealed the district championship for the Packers. All the good work Venice put in during the rst 43 minutes unraveled in the nal ve, as Packers quarterback David Hale connected with Reggie Campbell on a 37-yard pass as time expired and Jarvis Stewart converted the twopoint attempt to give Largo a 22-21 victory. The kids are excited and theyve had this game circled for a long time especially after the way we lost the district title to them last year, Peacock said, The 4-2 Packers are coming off a bye after their 21-7 win over Osceola and have had two weeks to prepare for the Indians. They run a balanced offensive attack led by senior quarterback Donavan Hale, who Peacock said is a BCS-level quarterback similar to ones the Indians saw earlier this year against Palmetto and Dixie Hollins. They also have four receivers including junior Dakarai Allen that are threats any time they touch the ball and a running back in senior John Clark who has more than 500 yards rushing and six touchdowns on the year. Those receivers play defensive back also, so that gives us a little advantage with them going both ways, Peacock said. Theyre loaded with speed all over the eld, so its going to be a tough game. Largos defense has been steady since the Packers 42-0 loss to East Lake in the second game of the season, giving up an average of 15 points per game since that setback in September. Safeties Brandon Drayton and Jonathan Crawford lead the defense with 30 tackles each on the season. Largo always plays good defense and their kids always give a great effort, Peacock said. Like I said, weve got a big challenge ahead of us. Venices offense will have a challenge of their own after last weeks injury to starting tailback Malik Bryant. Bryant took a helmet to the knee in the rst play of last weeks game against Sarasota and was lost for the game. Peacock said further tests are being done to determine the damage to Bryants knee and that he could be back at some point this season. Senior Brandon Davis lled in admirably for Bryant, gaining 119 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. That leaves Davis as the likely starter Friday night. Brandon is denitely going to have a bigger role if Malik cant come back, Peacock said. Hes got some high skill at the position but he just hasnt had a whole lot of opportunities. Hes going to get those opportunities now so well see how it all works out. Prediction: Venice 26, Largo 21Email: slockwood@venicegondolier.comVenice looks to exact revenge on LargoBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSPORTS EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY JUSTIN FENNELLVenice quarterback Bryce Carpenter looks for some running room during last Friday nights 46-0 homecoming win over Sarasota.

If interested, please contact Jessica Pluchino at 941-223-8351. The scores in Mondays Class 3A-District 14 tournament at Misty Creek Country Club in Sarasota may have been a lot higher than anyone expected, but the Venice Indians golf team did just enough to advance to next weeks regional tournament in Fort Myers. Indians golfer Ron Johnson said playing in 92 degree heat and windy conditions on the par 72 course made for the toughest challenge the team has faced all season. Johnson, who nished with an 83 over 18 holes, said the course was playing hard and the greens were very quick. He added that the wind blew a putt by Lakewood Ranchs Barry McDonnell 15 feet across the green at one point. If you had to putt downhill, the ball would not stop, Johnson said. There were a couple of dead spots on some of the greens that made it hard to read a few putts, but it was just a very, very good test of golf. Some of those greens were perfect and if you add those in, youre almost scared hitting a putt especially downhill. I didnt do very well. It was just one of those days. When senior Ben Miller walked off the 18th green after shooting an 80 for the round, he angrily put his bag on the ground and didnt respond to questions about his round from a group of his teammates as he went to turn in his scorecard. Once he saw the rest of the days high scores, he breathed a sigh of relief. Were moving on and thats what Im happy about, said Miller, who had ve birdies. The greens were really fast and it was hard to hold the green on your second shot. You had to do slap shots every time. Millers 80 tied teammate Devin Hill as the best score for Venice, which also got an 81 from DLynn Roach. The Indians score of 324 was a single stroke behind Riverviews 323. Defending state champion Lakewood Ranch won the district title after posting a 316. North Port nished last in the seven-team eld after posting a 392. Rodrigo Amayo led the Bobcats with an 87. Braden Rivers Andrew Hannett earned medalist honors after shooting a 73 one of just a handful of golfers to nish in the 70s. Venice head coach Marty Tarala said his team played very well in a practice round at Misty Creek over the weekend, thus making the high scores a big surprise. I thought the boys had a better understanding of the course, Tarala said. We had more wind today and the greens were a little quicker, but even with that I did not expect our scores to be this high. Today was a movement day and about getting in the top three, which we did. Johnson said one of the keys to performing well at next weeks regional at The Plantation in Fort Myers is to get past the bad rounds like Monday. Several team members said theyll spend the next week working on ways to improve their game for the biggest tournament of the year. For Johnson, its going to be putting. Youve just got to let it go, keep working and play better next time, said Johnson, who had two birdies in his round. Ive just got to grind down and make everything more consistent.Email: slockwood@venicegondolier.comIndians place third in district to advance By SCOTT LOCKWOODSPORTS EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY SCOTT LOCKWOODVenices DLynn Roach sinks his nal putt of the day at this weeks Boys Class 3A-District 14 golf tournament at Misty Creek Country Club in Sara sota.

WELLBEING 2B VENUE 3B CLASS ACTS 7BWEDNESDAY OCTOBER 15, 2014 CONTACT US KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR 941-207-1000 SUN NEWSPAPERSOUR TOWN Planning began a year ago for Sun Fiesta 2014, which starts Friday at 5 p.m. in Centennial Park in downtown Venice. Considered the biggest party of the year for Venice residents, especially year-round residents, the end of summer celebration dates to 1973, when it began as a sort of last hurrah before seasonal residents returned. It has been sponsored by the Womens Sertoma Club of Venice since 1994. Now in its 41st year, Sun Fiesta has not only grown into a three-day event but inspired the creation of a pre-party Thursday evening on South Nokomis Avenue the Venice Wine Feast, sponsored by the Sertoma of Venice (the other Sertoma club). Both Sun Fiesta and the Wine Feast benet local charities and scholarships, including the Speech Clinic project of the Sertoma Club. The wine tasting, at $65 per person, is always sold out because space is limited to the one-block stretch of South Nokomis Avenue between West Miami and West Venice avenues. Vendors will set up for Sun Fiesta before noon Friday, which means the north side of West Venice Avenue will be closed all day Friday and at least until noon on Saturday for the Fiesta Bed Races at 9 a.m. Saturday, followed by the Sun Fiesta Parade at 10 a.m. In the bed races a rider sits in each artfully decorated bed, propelled by four pushers and as many as two backup pushers. The parade follows. At noon is the Miss Sun Fiesta contest, which offers a $1,000 college scholarship to the winner. Entrants must be 16-18 years old. There is also a Sun Fiesta Idol contest, dance demonstrations by students at local dance schools, crafts, games and contests for children, a bounce house and, Sunday morning, the Boy Scout pancake breakfast from 9 to 11 a.m. Sun Fiesta T-Shirts and posters will be available in the Womens Sertoma Booth during the festival. That will be the booth where all the worker bees are wearing matching shirts, although some will be T-shirts and some will be tank tops. Many a Venice resident has the complete collection. Early designs by the late Elsa Kern are especially sought after. Also popular is a rafe of all sorts of goods, merchandise Sun Fiesta kicks off Snowbird SeasonBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITORThink It Over. Its been 55 years since the Feb. 3, 1959, plane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. But Everyday a Buddy Holly tune is being played somewhere. And from now through Nov. 15, a whole lot of his music is being performed in Fort Myers at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. Buddy, the Buddy Holly Story had them rocking in the aisles Saturday night and then standing and applauding at length when the high-energy show ended too soon for most. Despite his too-short career, the performer from Lubbock, Texas, left a big imprint on the music industry as he moved from country to full-blown rock n roll, making an impact with songs such as Thatll Be the Day, Peggy Sue, Ready Teddy, Oh, Boy and Maybe Baby. Written by Alan Janes, Buddy covers the three years from his local per formances in Lubbock to his Decca contract; relocation to Clovis, N.M., with Norman Pettys Studio; his appearance at the Apollo Theater in New York City; his marriage; and his nal appearance in Clear Lake, Iowa, during the big storm that would end it all later that night. Fortunately, while news of the plane crash is part of the show, a powerhouse nale has the audience cheering for his life and impact on the music industry rather than dwelling on the accident. Todd Meredith never stops in his performance as Buddy, leading the Buddy is a high-energy experienceBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR PHOTO PROVIDEDSusaye Lawson as an Apollo singer, Justin Droegemueller as a Cricket with Todd Meredith as Buddy Holly in the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre production of Buddy, the Buddy Holly Story, through Nov. 15 in Fort Myers. BUDDY | 4 PHOTO PROVIDEDDetermination is the name of the bed race game at the annual Sun Fiesta in Venice.The third time is the charm for Richard OBriens Rocky Horror Show, playing through Nov. 1 at Venice Theatre. Director Allan Kollar, choreographer Brad Wages and costumer Nicholas Hartman could have rested on their laurels this time, for their rst two Venice Theatre productions of this show were spectacular, knock-your-socks off-productions with all the zaniness of both the classic cult lm and the Broadway versions. But this incarnation of Rocky may be the best one yet. It certainly was a hit with Fridays opening-night crowd. Many in the audience were dressed as their favorite char acters. Even before the show began, the Transylvanians were interacting with members of the audience, especially with a longtime fan seated near me. Vera Samuels portrays Columbia again and she does it well. She is one of the returning cast members. It is easy to see why she was selected. Samuels has the talent to carry off the multifaceted character, with emphasis on the word character, and she does not miss a beat. Caitlin Longstreet returns for the second time as Janet Weiss and is just as good if not better than she was a few years ago. Also reprising a role and doing it well is Brian Rudolph as Rockie. Otherwise, it is interesting to see Logan ONeill strut his stuff on those incredible highheeled red boots with Kaitlyn Terpstra as Magenta and Trixie, and Kristofer Geddie as Riff Raff. Geddie does the Time Warp better than anyone has ever done the Time Warp, but that is not the only reason he was so good in his role. He not only played a character but stayed character and then some. Terpstra also proved her on-the-way-to-Broadway talent in her dual roles which included the opening lm bit. Jason Ellis not only looks the part of preppy Brad Majors but also is a good singer and actor. Portraying the Transylvanians are Nick Antonyo, Brandon Michael Butler, Andrew Cutro, Jasmine Deal, Sydney Deal, Parker Lahorne, Ali McManamy, Ariella Corinne Pizarro, Alison Prouty, Kristina Rehak, Allyson Robertson, Jeffrey Sadler, Patrick Tancey and Kelly Wynn Woodland. David Walker portrays Eddie and Dr. Scott. Steven ODea is The Narrator and Rick Bogner leads the or chestra and serves as music director. The set is by John Michael Andzullis with sound by Dorian Boyd and lighting by David Castaneda.

4B SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 14-member cast in one of the rockingest shows on any area stage in some years. Not only did Meredith keep playing his guitar while standing on the big bass played by Justin Droegemueller (one of the Crickets), but then Droegemueller took a turn standing on the bass which he continued to play. Those were just a few of the wow moments in this rockin revue. Most cast members played multiple roles, such as DJs at radio stations that played Holly tunes, singers and dancers at the Apollo and elsewhere, recording studio personnel, and two of them, nally, as Ritchie Valens (Jayar Garcia) and The Big Bopper, J.P. Richardson Jr. (Mike Brennan). Garcia is a good example of the depth of talent in the cast. He also portrayed a singer in the Hayriders, a Decca engineer and the deejay at station CLS. Rendell Debose, who was so great as the donkey in Shrek the Musical at the Broadway Palm, showed his versatility in this show as the DJ at WDAS, Jack Daw, and one of the singers at the Apollo where the allwhite performers (Buddy Holly and the Crickets) were a huge hit. How they even got the 1958 booking was a mir acle in an era in which segregation still reigned in many places. Not only did Holly produce a long list of hit songs in his short career, he also managed to do it his way, despite so-called experts who tried to keep him playing the tried and true country style of the time. Judging by the lasting popularity of his music, he must have done something right. So did the Broadway Palm in producing this terric show. And I learned that if you go on a Saturday night, there is a choice of two entrees that can be ordered from a menu as an alternative to the excellent buffet. Of course, you can still visit the salad and dessert bars. For tickets, to this or any of the coming shows this season, call 239-2784422 or visit www. kcool@venicegondolier.comBUDDYFROM PAGE 1 The Education Docents of the Venice Area Historical Society (VAHS) recently hosted 15 preschool students and three teachers of the VeniceNokomis Nursery School. The students learned about circus animals that arrived in Venice on the circus train; observed the dominant arch shape throughout the depot; discovered how local oranges and vegetables were shipped on the train north to other parts of the country; and walked down the now unused railroad tracks. In the caboose, they learned about the role of the conductor, who is the manager of the train. VAHS education docents were John Osbourne, Maria Parker, Vicky May, Janie Ewell, Penny Phelps and Barbara Smith. The tour was developed by the societys education committee. The depot and caboose are open Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. In November, expanded winter hours, in addition to year round Saturday hours, will begin.

Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, will be Breaking Out in Ives as the intimate black box studio launches its fourth season Oct. 16 with six one-act comedies by the acclaimed wordsmith David Ives.

W e watched a 3-D movie, met some critters, built roller coasters, played sports, found dinosaur bones and experienced a hurricane (sort of). Thats a lot of fun for less than $10 per child. The Imaginarium Science Center in Fort Myers is a great place to take kids over the holidays. Since my children walk on all fours, chase bunnies and perceive a door knock as an invasion, I needed to nd some upright-walking children to borrow (which sounds weird but showing up to Imaginarium with no kids might be even more creepy). The Fritsch family of Deep Creek kindly lent me 10-year-old Victor and 8-year-old Natalie (again, that sounds worthy of a call to Department of Children and Families, but Ive known the Fritsches for years so this is actually far less strange than it sounds). Both Victor and Natalie are incredibly intelligent and polite, but they are still kids with active imaginations and genuine enthusiasm. Immediately after paying the entry fee, we learned that a 3-D movie would be playing within a few minutes and the topic was penguins. Thats my favorite animal, Natalie excitedly said while wearing a T-shirt that happened to have penguins on it. We got our 3-D glasses and watched a 20-minute lm about the lives of King Penguins on South Georgia Island, a subantarctic island. After the lm, Imaginarium offered Animal Encounters in the same theater. Out came a creepy critter in need of moisturizer, which Victor immediately identied: a bearded dragon. I want a bearded dragon and Id name him Dave, Victor said. The next animal was a tortoise, which prompted the Fritsch kids to announce they want turtles and they each had names picked out: Natalie selected Bob; Victor chose Franklin, or Frank for short. The third animal was Natalies worst nightmare: a big, squishy toad (she hates frogs/toads). She immediately ed her seat and found the farthest possible chair. But the kids learned that this toad eats frogs, among other things. So its a cannibal? Victor asked. He looks like a cannibal. Victor then tried helping his sister by explaining that the toad eats frogs, and since she hates frogs, the toad is then her friend. When that didnt work, he offered her $1 if she would touch the toad. Seriously? she asked him. Yes. So she touched the toad and then reminded him several times how he owed her a dollar. Neither had trouble touching the stingrays in one of the two Sea to See Touch Tanks. Guests are allowed to feel the smooth skin of stingrays several times a day. The other tank has starsh and even a ounder, which had tucked itself into the sand making it nearly invisible (although Victor spotted it easily). Theres another area of live animals as well, but the snakes, frogs, turtles, etc., are kept in cages (which is good because they have a poisonous dart frog scary). The main science room is really like a gym lled with toys and activities. Young kids likely have no idea theyre really learning about Newtons Laws of Motion, physics, archaeology and even kinesiology. Victor spent time building a roller coaster. Natalie and Victor enjoyed the Sporty Science Area where guests play simulated skills tests in the areas of soccer, hockey, basketball, football and baseball (OK, I did too). The two participated in an archaeological dig ( ne, I did too). They really enjoyed seeing what 45 mph winds feels like in the Hurricane Experience (yup, I did too). In fact, we sat through the Hurricane Experience three times. Science is fun, Victor said. It really is. Christy Feinberg is a senior writer for the Sun newspapers.

The second heat was a candy chase, with Joshua Lafountain and Christian Criola laying a candy trail for the rest of the team. Chaperone Suzanne Park and her son, Cadet Todd Park, collected the most candy in under 45 minutes. The Raider team was blessed with a respite from rain, enjoying sunny skies for the two-hour race. All went home happy and soaked.Venice High Raider Team slogs awayBy R.J.

AROUND TOWN 8B WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 15, 2014 CONTACT US FRAN VALENCIC SOCIAL COLUMNIST SUN NEWSPAPERS Have you ever heard of Quicktionary? Neither did I until I read a grant written by a Sarasota County teacher wanting to purchase several for the classroom. The teacher described it as a tool that changed directions written in English to Spanish, thus helping bilingual students learn and participate more in class. Other grant writers wanted a class set of circuit breakers for science to replace the 18-yearold ones in the school science lab. Many teachers wanted more books. This year, 450 teachers applied for grants up to $1,000. Thanks to the Education Foundation of Sarasota County, many will be awarded grants to bring innovated curriculum based projects to their classrooms. To become a donor, grant reader or for information, call 941-927-3034, email visit or visit This is the 25th year for the Classroom Grants Program.Its Fiesta TimeJoin me downtown this weekend and well Rock On with family and friends at the annual Womens Sertoma Club of Venice Sun Fiesta.

October 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 Yes, Ill be honest and say its not an easy task to sort through 80 or so emails on a daily basis, but its better than having zero. I would rather get your email twice than not at all. With fall events in full swing, now is the time to stay on top of everything that is happening in Southwest Florida. An unfortunate thing happened this weekend technology failed me and many emails were lost. To be exact, emails received via and gramirez@ from Sept. 26 through Oct. 10. So if youre reading this and you know you submitted an event during that time, I would dig that email up and forward it to me again just to be sure. I dont know if Ill be able to recover those emails but I will try! On a happy note, Im going to start running a list of fall events weekly in which I will run anything from pumpkin patches to fall festivals and other Halloween-related events to keep you in the spirit of Fall. Check them out this week on page 7. If you would like to submit your event as always send it via email to G ABRIELA M ENDOZA Lets Go! Editor October is Sun Fiesta month in Venice. When this party began in 1973, it was a celebra tion of the end of summer and the eminent arrival of seasonal visitors. Many businesses closed for the summer in those days. Before they reopened for tourist or snowbird season they held a last-hurrah-style party. These days, Venice stores are open all year, although some have summer hours. That celebration was moved to October. Known these days as Sun Fiesta, it is open to everyone who enjoys a good party, festival food and nearly nonstop entertainment. Ten years ago, a companion party was added the Sertoma Wine Festival, held on the Thursday night preceding Sun Fiesta. Also a fundraiser, but for the other Sertoma club in Venice, the Wine Festival is on South Nokomis Avenue, between Miami and West Venice avenues. Several restaurants provide tasty samples of their fare. Venice Wine & Coee coordinates the wines. Tickets are $65 per person, all inclusive, to enjoy generous tastings of food and wine.

October 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 5 ON THE COVER: SUN FIESTAFor four decades, Sun Fiesta has been the biggest party of the year for Venice residents, especially the year-round residents. Sponsored by Womens Sertoma since 1994, the 41st incarnation of the event begins at 5 p.m. Friday at Centennial Park in downtown Venice. As it did back in 1974, the event signals the beginning of the tourist or snowbird season. Back in those days, when many merchants closed for the summer because there were so few residents, the party also was considered the last hurrah before everyone went back to work. These days the last hurrah is a three-day event that includes bed races, a parade, lots of entertainment, a Miss Venice scholarship event and a Venice Idol contest. The event even inspired a companion event The Venice Wine Festival, Thursday evening before the festival. It is sponsored by Sertoma which also stas a beer and burger booth at the Womens Sertoma event. Sertoma members x the burgers your way. Both events benet local charities and scholarships, including the Hearing and Speech Clinic project of Womens Sertoma. The wine tasting, at $65 per person, is always a sell-out because space is limited to the one-block stretch of South Nokomis Avenue between Miami and West Venice avenues. Vendors will set up for Sun Fiesta before noon Friday. The north side of West Venice Avenue will be closed all day Friday and at least until noon on Saturday because of the Fiesta Bed Races at 9 a.m. Saturday followed by the annual Sun Fiesta Parade. Sun Fiesta posters and T-shirts are the hot items to buy at the festival. Many people have posters dating back 20 or more years which they have framed to hang proudly in their homes. Womens Sertoma members will be wearing and selling T-shirts so that by Sunday it might appear to be a Venice uniform. Shirts come in every size and generally in at least two styles T and tank. You cant miss the T-shirt booth. Look for giant piles of shirts. Also popular is the rae goods, merchandise and possibly even a trip or two. Stop by the Centennial Park Gazebo to place your bids. Winners will be announced Sunday afternoon near the end of the weekend festival. The festival opens Friday at 5 p.m. with mostly nonstop entertainment all weekend. In case of rain, the festival will be Oct. 24-26. Bed races and the annual Sun Fiesta parade merit getting up early on Saturday morning. Both are on the north side of West Venice Avenue which is closed to trac until after the parade. The rst heat of the bed races will be at 9 a.m. These are no ordinary beds, by the way. The parade generally begins about 10 a.m. At noon, head over to the Showmobile area for the Miss Venice contest. That too is the site for the Venice Idol contest and exhibitions by local dance students. Food booths, arts and craft vendors, nearly non-stop entertainment, a bounce house plus games, crafts and contests for children make Sun Fiesta the perfect event for all ages as well as a money-maker for the Sertoma speech and hearing clinic, college scholarships, Our Mothers House and so many other local charities. Saturday hours for the festival are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, the Boy Scout pancake breakfast operates from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The festival will continue until 5 p.m. Be it the last hurrah or the rst, Sun Fiesta is always a fun event.

Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming AP PHOTO In this image released by Universal Pictures, Luke Evans appears in a scene from Dracula Untold.The fact Dracula Untold is opening in early October tells you everything you need to know about this latest retelling of Bram Stokers bloodsucker story. Most of the special eects are good, but they are not grand enough to justify a summer opening. The monster moments are there, but they are far from scary enough to merit the lm opening on Halloween. Dracula Untold is entertaining, just not memorable. It eventually will become the kind of heavily repeated feature lm that cable channels use to ll weekend afternoons when theres nothing original to air. The untold part of the title is that Vlad the Impaler (Luke Evans) has given up his spiking ways to be a kind and caring ruler. His peaceful ways are dashed when a Turkish army shows up request ing 1,000 boys from Vlads kingdom including his wimpy son to be part of the Turk ghting machine, Vlad turns to a dark force to give him the power he needs to defend his people. Although it seems much longer, the last hour of the lm is Vlad struggling with his new blood lust addiction, turning into a colony of bats and trying to avoid the pesky sun. For a man who has just gotten vampire abilities, he adjusts quickly. There are two big battles, but both are staged with all the originality of a game of Risk. Vlad knows hes worthless in daylight, but instead of taking advantage of every second of night to kill the invading soldiers he waits around for the army to arrive just moments before dawn. First-time director, Gary Shore stumbles between the graphically stunning style of lmmaking used by Zack Snyder in and the choppy computer-generated work of a cheesy video game. Since the direction is so mundane, the lm needed its actors to turn in compelling performances. Evans has neither the charisma nor the muscle to make Vlad the same kind of captivating character that Dracula has been portrayed in the past productions. Sarah Gadons work as Vlads wife is so colorless she often blends into the scenery. Correction of any of these weaknesses would have taken Dracula out of the darkness of a forgettable fall release. As is, the lm is just a little too anemic for a Halloween creep.By RICK BENTLEYTHE FRESNO BEE Dracula Untold says Dont go Friday, October 24, 2014Tenth Anniversary DINNER DANCEWe look forward to you joining us for a lovely evening of dining, dancing and fun! rfnrfnCHARLOTTE HARBOR EVENT AND CONFERENCE CENTER 75 TAYLOR STREET PUNTA GORDA, FLORIDA 33950tbffbDINNER AND ONE COCKTAIL INCLUDEDbfbbfffbbnf ntbnnTEAM PUNTA GORDA IS A 501(C)3 NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION b Tenth Anniversary DINNER DANCE YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO ATTEND THE bfbb 50475239 Hurry!

All of them volunteers. This year is a very special year for the club, marking its 50th anniversary. Oktoberfest has always played a small part in the clubs history, but the large commercial festival oered to the public was the brainchild of Klaus Kohl back in the mid-1980s and the huge eort for the colossal event was rst expended 29 years ago back in 1985.

12 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 15 21, 2014 DINING OUT WITHSince she took over the reins of Friendly Floors more than 20 years ago, Marjorie Benson not only wanted to be the best ooring company in Charlotte County, but she also wanted to create relationships with her customers especially women who may not be familiar with purchasing or installing them. All our installers are male but we have six sales personnel and management sta that are all women, she said. Its funny because the ooring business is usually a male-dominated industry. But everybody is wonderful. We have a great sta; we are just like family. Benson selects her eating establishments in the same manner as she operates her business, by develop ing lasting relationships. That is why Opus Restaurant is her favorite dining spot for lunch or dinner. Their best luncheon dish, in my opinion, is the Hazelnut Chicken Salad, she said. The Lawson Burger is awesome as well. It has caramelized onions but I usually substitute the bleu cheese with goat cheese. Benson said she loves the sh items on the menu because they are all cooked just the way she enjoys them and seasoned perfectly. They have the best sh here, she said. They are coming out with fresh pasta dishes. I cant wait to try them. John Ellis has been the head chef at Opus for the last nine months and said the lunch menu is not too fancy because many customers have an hour to eat and need to return to work. Dinner, on the other hand, is fun, and we try to be creative, he said. We have specials every week and are coming out with a new menu. Ellis said the new menu will be oering various types of seafood including swordsh, cod, halibut sea bass and lionsh the evasive species from Asia. The meat of the lionsh is very tasty and of excellent quality, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. In addition to their seafood, Opus will have lets, rib eye steaks, rack of lamb and short ribs on the menu as well. Like Opus, Benson said she wants her customers to feel comfortable by oering them the best service that she can. That was the creed of Friendly Floors when it was founded by Bensons parents in 1986 and she has carried on that tradition. They sell area rugs, carpeting, ceramic and porcelain tile, glass tile, hardwood, laminate and natural stone. As I said, we cater to a lot to women who come in and are not familiar with ooring products or how they are installed, she said. We want an educated con sumer. We want to put the right ooring in someones home, and at the same time, we consider a customers lifestyle and their budget. Its all important. Benson said she is proud to have been voted the best ooring and carpet store in Charlotte County by the Sun for the past 11 years. What makes it so special for us is that our customers voted for us, she said. And that is why we have a lot of repeat customers. Friendly Floors is located at 3785 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte. Their hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and evenings by appointment. For more information, visit or call 941-623-9994.

October 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 13 SIDE DISHWayne and Valerie Mercer get up at 4:30 every morning. No wonder they like coee so much, you say? Its WAY more than that. Slipping into an Arcadian drawl that could only have come from his dad, Wayne Mercer rhapsodizes on childhood memories of coee, the way one might go on about a hometown soda shop. My dad, David, was an old cowboy working at Lykes Brothers east of Babcock Ranch. Hed pour coee in a little bowl to cool o for me. He was a range rider, moving cattle, sleeping under the stars. He had a coee can and this stage with a bar acrost it. Hed put the coee in a wired-up can with water and brew it over the re. He still does it thattaway in a percolator with the works taken out. Waynes dad, now 88, comes into Mercers and says, simply, I need coee. He allows as how he likes the Sumatra. All his life hes had cowboy coee; now he gets the good stu, Wayne smiles. Valerie Mercers fondest memory is going to Buds Donuts in Alpena, Mich., every Saturday with her father, for homemade doughnuts and coee. Life centered around a cup of coee, morning and night. Some women dream of having a quaint little bookstore; Vals dream was always a coee shop. Though she works full time as a cardiac tech, coees her passion. Wayne and Val were meant for each other. They met at a coee shop. Traveling for her job, Valerie always brought home beans from dierent coee shops. When they heard about the roast your own move ment, Wayne got a little roaster, just big enough for a pot, for Fathers Day. They burned the thing up in three weeks. Soon it was Were gonna need a bigger roaster. The next biggest roaster was a $500 half-pound beast. They were carrying home-roasted coee everywhere in thermos es. Clients and coworkers said, Man, that smells good! Can you bring us some of that? Pretty soon they burned through the half-pound roaster and got a 2.5-pounder. Wayne ran 220 out to the lanai to roast out there. People would come by and pick up bags like it wasnt legal. They educated themselves, visiting coee houses, reading up on coee. Cigars, wine, coee, all oer subtleties that acionados know how to savor, and they were fast becoming connoisseurs. When they felt ready, they opened a little shop in Punta Gorda and sold at the Farmers Market. Three years ago, they moved into their caf on Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte, where they also serve breakfast and lunch. Now they have a 5-pound and an 11-pound roaster, called Big Daddy. They dont buy coee by the pound anymore; they buy it in 150-pound sacks from all over the world. For a place that runs on caeine, Mercers is remarkably mellow, with private alcoves, shaded lamps, leather couches, and tapestry cushions.

14 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 15 21, 2014 DINING OUT Terry and Dianne Burkholder invited pizza lovers to fill their plates with as many free pizza slices as they could hold prior to the official opening of Marco's Pizza in Englewood on Sept. 29. According to Terry, offering free pizza and drinks before opening is a Marco's tradition. His dad, Ronald, helped by dispensing soft drinks. "We greet customers personally and allow them to view our entire facility, see our extensive menu, and taste slices of our specialty pizza. We want them to feel at home here," Terry said. At this point the Burkholders have hired 30 new em ployees, all from the Englewood area, and more may be needed in the months ahead. "Our restaurant seats 85 people comfortably," Dianne said, "and we're planning to install outside tables and umbrellas soon." The new Marco's in Englewood, with two flashy menu boards, four huge flat-screen TVs, drivethrough window service, and online email club offerings isn't your typical pizza parlor. However, authentic family recipes and traditions passed down from Pasquale "Pat" Giammarco, an Italian immigrant who opened his first Marco's Pizza in Oregon, Ohio, in 1978, are strictly adhered to in every Marco's franchise. "We're from Ohio and know that customers appreciate Marco's authentic touches," said Terry. "We make our pizza dough daily, right in the store, and our signature, hand-blended sauces and fresh toppings are prepared on-site as well." The Burkholders oer 10", 12", 14", and 16" pizzas with names that include: Deluxe Uno, Meat Supremo, Chicken Fresco, Hawaiian Chicken, White Cheezy, Garden, and Pepperoni Magnico. Customers can choose whatever toppings they desire. Employee Becca Cassidy believes that fresh toppings make the difference. "The pizza crust is hand-tossed, not too thick, and the toppings are extra delicious," she said. Marco's general menu includes antipasto, chicken Caesar, garden, Greek, and chef salads. Freshly baked Italiano, steak and cheese, ham and cheese, chicken club, meatball, veggie, or turkey club subs on rustic wheat or Italian white bread come in 6" or 12" sizes. Other "extra fun" items include meatball bake with signature sauce and cheese blend, meaty chicken wings with tangy BBQ sauce, chicken dippers with a choice of dipping sauces, and cheezybread strips with three kinds of cheeses and garlic butter that's topped with Parmesan se asoning and served with pizza or ranch dipping sauce. Their one and only dessert CinnaSquares consists of butter baked pastries topped with cinnamon, sugar, and optional vanilla icing. Shirley Burggraf, an employee who also hails from Ohio, encourages customers to join Marco's email club so that they can receive coupons straight into their inbox. "On their birthdays, customers will receive special surprises and be eligible to receive a free cheezybread (pickup only) with the purchase of any pizza," she said. Find out more about Marco's email club, their weekly specials, and view their entire menu online at Place orders online or call them at 941-475-8800. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Marcos Pizza is at 1970 S. McCall Road, Englewood. Ah!

October 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 15 DINING OUTThroughout history, the soda fountain has served as a place to catch up on all the local news, enjoy time with friends and family and savor a delightful array of ice cream products. Though in most cases, the soda fountain has been replaced by the coee shop, the emotions it elicits of memories from simpler times still resonate with a certain generation. The beautiful thing about The Soda Fountain in Venice is that it not only has that "malt shop" atmosphere, it also has some delicious food to go along with that. But when Ken and Susan Heitel, longtime owners of Heitel Jewelers, bought The Soda Fountain about six and a half years ago, their restaurant experience was mostly limited to being the landlords of one they own the building where it is located. "I had worked at the World's Fair in New York as a waitress in 1964, and Ken made Belgian waffles there," Susan said. "That was the extent of our restaurant knowledge." At the time they took over the restaurant, though, the Heitels did have more than three decades of retail experience in their own jewelry store, making them experts in customer service. Ken said that they really liked the existing theme of the store, but knew it was important to make some changes and hire a highly experienced staff. "It's a very neat concept, so we kept that and took the first two years creating an iconic part of West Venice Avenue," he said. "People love the old-fashioned look and we serve good food in large portions at a reasonable price." The Soda Fountain menu includes family favorites like pound hot dogs, overstuffed sandwiches and soups and sandwiches. But at a place like this, the true stars are the handmade ice cream specialties, like phosphates, ice cream sodas, floats, sundaes, cones, milkshakes and real malted milks, which you just can't find at most places. About four years ago, the Heitels enclosed what used to be the breezeway between their jewelry store and the restaurant and created a companion restaurant, Venice Avenue Pizza. The dining room itself only has about 20 seats in it, and shares a kitchen with The Soda Fountain, but its small size makes it an ideal space to rent out for small dinners and special events. And you can order from both restaurants' menus at either location. "We feature hand-tossed, New York-style pizza, which is cooked on a stone, unlike most pizza today," Ken said. "We get rave reviews on it, and feel our pizza is the best in town." Each night, except for Sunday, the restaurants oer specials that will appeal to a variety of tastes: Munchie Monday is for pizzas, Tuesday features live music, Wednesday is pizza and beer, Thirsty Thursday spotlights beer specials, Friday is pizza and beer and Shakin' Saturday oers great prices on shakes and malts. Having lived through an era when the soda fountain was especially popular, Ken says the appeal of that friendly, hometown feel to today's customers is easy to comprehend. "It's a place where a family can get a good meal at a reasonable price," he said. The Soda Fountain and Venice Avenue Pizzeria are at 349 West Venice Ave., Venice, and are open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. For more information, visit the Facebook page or the website at www., or call 94-488-7600.The Soda Fountain lets you relive the good ol daysBy DEBBIE FLESSNERSUN CORRESPONDENT not only has that "malt shop" atmosphere, The Soda Fountain lets you relive the good ol days The Soda Fountain lets you relive the good ol days The Soda Fountain lets you relive the good ol days SUN PHOTOS BY DEBBIE FLESSNERThe Soda Fountain has a friendly sta reminiscent of its old-fashioned atmosphere.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 15 21, 2014 LIVE MUSICTommy DeSantis, founder of the Doo-Wop and oldies group Uptown Express, said music has been in his blood all his life. Doo-Wop was the music of my time, DeSantis said. Once I heard vocal harmonies the human voice making those chords its something that drew me in and never left. Ive listened to other music, but my heart has always been with the sound of group harmony. DeSantis, 69, started Uptown Express in 1984, a few years after moving to Southwest Florida from New York City, where he sang in a Doo-Wop group called The Enchantment from 1961 to 1979. I put an ad in the paper and wound up bringing in three or four extra guys, DeSantis said. It blossomed from there. We sing songs from the 50s and 60s. Uptown Express has changed its face somewhat over the years, but the current mix boasts DeSantis and Joe Russo, 67, Gary Knight, 75, and Bob Stewart, 68 all from the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda area along with Robert Atmore, 74, of Estero, has adopted a following of several thousand over the years performing the songs of Johnny Maestro, The Moonglows, The Four Seasons, The Drifters, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, The Temptations and many more. Musicians John Cortese, Ron Casella and Lou Casanova back up the singers. There are three things that set us apart from other groups in this category, DeSantis said. First, weve been together longer than any of them in Southwest Florida. Were going on our 31st year together. Second of all, were probably one of the only groups currently working in Southwest Florida that has live musicians behind us. All the other groups have karaoke music backing them up. And third, and most importantly, every one of our singers has performed in an oldies group from the late s and early s. Although the group plays many of their gigs in Fort Myers, they frequently head into the Charlotte County/ Sarasota County area. They will be playing from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 24 and Friday, Dec. 12 at the Plantation Golf & Country Club in Venice; from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 17 at Kings Gate Country Club in Port Charlotte; and on Tuesday, Dec. 23 at Visani Comedy Club in Port Charlotte.

October 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 17 UPCOMING EVENTSThe Friends of the North Port Library (the FOL) is constantly being challenged. All year long volunteers keep busy operating the Friends' used book store and sponsoring free children's, teen, and adult programs. Although the group's greatest challenge, raising money to purchase library materials and services not provided by the Sarasota County Library System, may be daunting, the committee is constantly searching for fresh ideas and exciting ways to have fun and raise money at the same time. "To my knowledge, this is the seventh year for the Friends of the North Port Library's annual fashion show and luncheon," said board member Charlotte Leonard-Braun, the show's chairman for the past ve years. "We try to change it up each year. Hats are optional, but adding a hat contest and inviting guests to be part of the show by acting as judges should be great fun. After contestants parade around, the judging panel will award one prize for the most elegant and another for the best funky hat." The Friends of the North Port Library Annual Fashion Show Luncheon and Silent/Chance Auction will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 29, at the Plantation Golf & Country Club, 500 Rockley Blvd., Venice. Doors open at 10 a.m. and a cash bar is available. Musical entertainment provided by the acoustic group Winging It begins at 10 a.m. At 11:30 a.m. there will be speakers and contests followed by lunch a grilled pear salad of mixed greens, Gorgonzola cheese, and shaved almonds that is topped with warm grilled chicken and plum vinaigrette. Dessert includes a pumpkin mousse, gingerbread, and gingersnaps. During the much awaited fashion show, models all well-known public gures or community activists will show o the latest styles from Krystyna's Designs and Tommy's Men's Fashions. Modeling Krystyna's latest fashions will be: Jill Luke, Joleen Luke, Heather Rozelle, Jennifer Melore, Jordan Carr, Lynne Schwartz, Jacqueline Moore, and Molly Tagtow. Sporting popular outts from Tommy's will be: North Port Fire Chief William Taae, North Port Police Chief Kevin Vespia, Pete Lear, Mike Renuli, and Tony Salvucci. A silent auction oers a fabulous oneweek condo vacation in Beech Mountain, N.C., as a prize. "Our goal is to raise $35,000 to support future programs and services for the North Port Library this year, and it's important to note that all proceeds from this show benet the library. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law," said Leonard-Braun. Committee members Mary Byrd, Sally Schmidt, Jeri Rief, Sherry Berry, Matilda Lang, Vicki Bailey, Jeanne Detry, and Corrine Crea will be selling 50/50 chance tickets costing $1 each or $5 for six during the afternoon event. Tickets for the "U" and Fashions Luncheon and Silent/Chance Auction cost $30 and may be purchased at the North Port Library Friends Bookstore, 13800 S. Tamiami Trail, North Port. For directions, and more information, go to www., or call 941-429-2207.

October 15 21, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 19 AT THE THEATERIts that time again to laugh out loud and stretch those funny bones. Back by popular demand, FST Improv returns on Saturday, Oct. 18, and runs through Jan. 3, 2015, with the classic game show, Out of Bounds Match-up. At FST, its the time to brush up on your loudest laugh and have a great Saturday night. Due to the popularity of this past summer series, Bownes Lab will once again be lled with the sounds of knee slapping, accidental snorting, and involuntary swatting of the person sitting next to you. After all, these are common symptoms of audience members experiencing FST Improv. In Out of Bounds Match-Up, two teams take the stage to duke it out for the most laughs. Taking audience suggestions, the FST Improv cast will twist and turn them into something hilarious. Who will win the duel of fools? You get to decide as they battle it out. FST Improv Founder and Managing Director Rebecca Hopkins shared her excitement for the return of this beloved game show. Out of Bounds Match-Up is a show we devel oped last summer taking our classic game show and turning up the heat. The audience was so enthusiastic this summer watching the Improvisers they love go head to head using the scenes pulled randomly from the bucket. No one, not even the performers, knew what would happen next. We knew we wanted to open the season with this show. It will be a great way to start what promises to be an exciting season of Improv! she said. Half of this clever, comedic cast has shared the stage for the last eight seasons of FST Improv. Does a person become funnier the longer you know them? Original cast member, Christine Alexander, imparts her wisdom on the subject stating, Its like being in a relationship working with the same people for over eight years. We know each other so well we dont even have to talk we can see what each other means. Its powerful. I also love working with the new members of the troupe. They make me a better player. Back for another season of witty weekend hilarity are returning cast members: Hopkins, Alexander, Patrick A. Jackson, Joey James, Darryl Knapp, Emily Levin, Katelyn McKelley, Angel Parker, Adam Ratner, and Steve Turrisi.

He never stopped shooting from the lip about the issues he faced and the people he faced up to. His comments on the leading political figures of his time are perceptive, deliciously candid, and sometimes downright prophetic. Jack brings honesty and passion to his portrayal of President Harry S. Truman and lets Harry speak for himself. Tickets are $18 and are available by calling the box office at 941-475-6756 or online at www. You can also stop by the box office.

Home Wednesday, October 15, 2014 &Real EstateWanderers who nd themselves in the vicinity of Nippino and Pocono Trails should beware the pull of the Nokomis Antique Triangle. As with its counterpart in Bermuda, those who succumb to the lure of the triangle can get lost, traveling to times and places not seen by average mortals in centuries. Adventurers stepping ashore at Rum Runners Antiques will nd proprietor Dan Simic at his desk, ready to regale one and all with his stories of long lost artifacts from near and far. His building is an antique itself, built in the mid 1920s for Dr. Fred Albee. Purchased by Simic seven years ago, and at the point of collapse, it has been painstakingly renovated so that its 1600 square feet is now home to a co-op of fteen antique dealers. I joke that the house was built by the oldest of the three pigs, says Simic, because it is made of solid brick, which is very unusual in a part of the country known for wood frame and stucco. The house was originally a private home and remained so until purchased by Simic. Some items in the antique shop were found buried on the property during land scape renovation and were determined to have belonged to a woman named Ruby, who lived in the servant quarters on the property. One of Dan Simics favorite pieces is a Ulla Darni glass lamp that he received from his great-great aunt. In New York City, Ulla Darni shades, called the Tiany of the 20th century, sell anywhere from $12,000 to $14,000. Its a rare and unusual piece primarily because of the curved edge of the shade. I love to buy unusual things, explains Simic. Anything that triggers the mind so that you say, What the heck was that for? To that end, he has a can opener from the 1800s, a Civil War era peg leg, some paintings done by the Florida Highway Men, a skull that belonged to a dental school in the early 20th century, an The Nokomis TriangleBy BETH DONOFRIOCORRESPONDENTA trio of treasures PHOTOS BY BETH DONOFRIOA map of the Nokomis Antique Triangle hanging in Dan Simics shop leads adventurers to hidden treasure.

Page 2 Wednesday, October 15, 2014 REAL ESTATE 101 By HOWARD CORRLOCAL GUEST COLUMNIST Contracts and leases take many dierent forms. Todays complex and sophisticated real estate market is challenging the Southwest Florida Real Estate professional to be on the cutting edge of creativity when structuring a commercial transaction. While it is always recommended to have legal representation in a transaction, it is also important to have a qualied professional associate that is knowledgeable to the ever-changing real estate market. There are many types of commercial real estate contracts. Contracts can be written or oral, contracts can be unilateral or bilateral, there are listing contracts and sale contracts which are broken down into many categories. Simply stated: A contract is an agreement between two parties that must include an oer, an acceptance, and a consideration. A contract itself is not implied, but the terms of a contract may be implied. There are a variety of dierent types ofcontractsused for dierent purposes. In addition, certain types ofcontractsmay be more popular in certain areas than in another. A purchase and sale contract is a bilateral contract where both parties to the transaction must perform to have a successful transaction. A bilateral contract is one where both parties are to perform their promises or obligations at some future time but not necessarily at the same time. Bilateralcon tractsmake up the majority of thecon tractsdrafted. For example, a contract for the sale of goods is a bilateral contract. The buyer promises to purchase the product and, in turn, the seller promises to supply the product. An option contract is a unilateral contract and is less common, but one of the many valid types ofcontracts. A unilateral contract is one where one of the parties performs his promises at the time of making the contract and the other party promises to perform in the future. This type of contract often has a fee associated with it known as option consideration. This is cash or the equiva lent and generally forfeited by the buyer if they do not perform under the terms and conditions of the contract or do not exer cise the option. Potential buyers should be careful that the option fee they pay to get a real estate option contract is not too high. In the case of a lease-purchase or rent-to-own transactions, potential buyers may agree to a higher-than-market-value rent in order to apply part of the rent toward the purchase price. If such potential buyers later decide not to exercise their purchase option they normally forfeit the higher rent already paid. Option contracts often have a specied time frame for the buyer to notify the seller of their intent to continue the contract and this act is referred to as exercising the option. A commercial lease is an agreement in which an owner agrees to allow a tenant the use of a space in exchange for money. Leases are considered valid enforceable contracts. Most commercial leases are long-term, set for several years, and include other nancial considerations in addition to simply rent. Some commercial leases require a portion of the prot of the renters business as part of the rent, this is referred to as percentage rent or a percentage lease. Most commercial leases have escalations or annual adjustments as part of the lease. The adjustments can be a percentage or xed amounts and can vary from annually or other periodic times during the lease term. These can be referred to as step leases. Some even tie the increase to the rate of ination, known as a cost-of-living lease. Commercial leases in Florida are subject to Florida sales tax. In summary if you are considering buying, selling, leasing or optioning real property, consult a qualied Real Estate professional or Real Estate attorney.

Page 6 Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Its easy to make your home more eco-friendly, and your yard is a great place to start. This season, take steps to limit your homes impact on the local environment by giving your outdoor spaces an earth-friendly makeover.Limit yard wasteWhen the leaves fall from the trees, you may be dealing with extra bundles of yard waste. Take steps to handle the debris properly. Never throw your leaves and trimmings out with the garbage. Instead, try composting what you can at home or bagging the waste to use as mulch on an as-needed basis. If your community has special pick-up days for yard waste, take advantage of those. Additionally, you can leave some clippings on the lawn to act as an organic fertilizer and provide the soil with nutrients.Be bird-friendlyAn eco-friendly yard will contain plenty of vegetation that provides cover and food for such wildlife as birds. Unfortunately your home itself can present a threat to their safety. Millions of wild birds are killed annually ying into windows. You can protect birds from this fate by applying decals to your windows that contain a component that reects ultraviolet sunlight. Try placing decals every few feet on your glass and applying UV liquid in the remaining areas. This will create a visual barrier that only birds can see and that helps them avoid striking glass. Because the UV reectivity may fade over time based on exposure, replace the decals every six to nine months and reapply the liquid every three months. Be flexibleThe mark of a beautiful, eco-friendly yard is not necessarily a conventional lawn. Fuel, water and a lot of time are necessary to maintain green grass. In at least some parts of your property, consider alternative ground cover that has a lower carbon footprint to maintain. Ornamental grasses, shrubs, thyme and other colorful, low-maintenance plants that dont grow very tall can make for a sustainable alternative thats just as visually appealing as grass. You may already be taking steps inside your home to be more planet-friendly, such as recycling, composting food scraps, using LED bulbs and turning o appliances when they arent in use. Now its time to take your greener living campaign to your homes outdoor spaces by protecting wildlife and tweaking the way you maintain your lawn.Make your yard more eco-friendlyFrom StatePoint PHOTOS PROVIDED An eco-friendly yard will contain plenty of vegetation that provides cover and food for such wildlife as birds. 487442 S T O P I N F O R C O O L F A L L S A V I N G S STOP IN FOR COOL FALL SAVINGS!

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Page 7 Whether youre a passionate chef and a regular host, or you cook simple meals for just your family, you know that a highly serviceable kitchen can mean the dierence between easy meal prep and a headache. A big part of this equation is your cooking appliances. If youre in the market for a new cook-top, oven or range, dont neglect electric options. Even ardent gas fans will be interested to learn how new innovations in electric cooking appliances are making kitchens more functional and versatile. With that in mind, here are some things to consider before upgrading your kitchen with new appliances: Easy cleaning: Time spent in the kitchen crafting meals for your loved ones can be a pleasurable experience. But few would say the same for cleaning. Opt for appliances that oer stress-free cleaning functions. Electric ovens, for ex ample, tend to be much easier to clean than the gas variety with the benet of powerful self-cleaning at the touch of a button. Also look for features such as removable glass doors, that can make cleanup a cinch. Even cooking: Roasting a chicken tonight? An electric oven means less monitoring of your dinner, as such appli ances boast more even cook ing with the added advantage of convection fans. Cooking on the stovetop? Electric heat can be just as or more precise and consistent with modern pot-sensing technology, high power elements and quality cookware. Versatility: When shopping for appliances, keep fast, efficient cooking top of mind. For example, one brand offers a range that features induction cooking technology, which uses heat generated from magnetics instead of coils for the fastest heat transfer of any cooking surface. The range is equipped with child safety features, high power cooking elements, and pot-sensor technology. Additionally, a scope of func tions can be performed with the multi-function convection oven, included rotisserie accessory and full-width warming drawer. Craftmanship: For a more functional, beautiful kitchen, its all about finding the intersection of cutting edge technology and craftsmanship. Consider checking out several brands that manufacture kitchen appliances that apply extensive cooking and design expertise to make ranges, cooktops and ovens. If youre upgrading your kitchen dont make the assumption that a gas cooktop or oven is superior to electric. Explore new models and options that offer both performance and flexibility.Upgrading your kitchen?

Page 8 Wednesday, October 15, 2014 With the fall season comes cool weather and more time indoors. Snuggling up with blankets and partaking in activities at home can create more clutter than usual around the house. Instead of getting frustrated, its easy to add stylish storage to corral extra items. Get organized and keep your home clutter-free with a few smart tips.Neat reading racksMany people enjoy a good read before counting sheep. However, books, maga zines and tablets can just add disarray if left scattered around the bedroom. To combat this type of clutter, add wall-mounted magazine racks or crates to hold your reading pieces. Paint a wooden crate using multi-surface painters tape. Add stripes in striking colors for a reading rack thats functional and fabulous looking. After drying, cut your crate down the middle you now have two spots for book storage. Install simple wall-hanging brackets to the edges of the crates and attach each to the wall with drywall anchors for a sturdy and safe nish. These are also great for stowing away toys in a childs playroom or towels in the bathroom.Boost bedroom storageIf every closet, nook and cranny in your home is occupied, its time to look toward other avenues for order. Calm your chaos with under-bed storage units by trans forming old dresser drawers into storage space. Paint the drawers in the color of your choice and drill casters to the bottom for easy rolling access. Slide them under your bed and you can now neatly put away items that were once a nuisance. Chi stoag deas to corral clutterFrom BPT PHOTOS PROVIDEDMultipurpose seatingChic ottomans and cushioned benches are great pieces that provide extra seating in family rooms. But in addition to their pleasant outward appearance, many contain hidden storage underneath the lid. Neatly stow away movies, games, blankets and pillows that would otherwise crowd this high-traffic area. Position the furniture as an accent piece or place a lengthy bench along a window for a cozy reading nook, while simultaneously increasing your storage.Cozy staircase storageThe space under stairs is often overlooked as a storage spot, since its usually closed o with drywall. What most homeowners dont realize is this tricky triangle is typically hollow, and the wasted space can be utilized to store your familys odds and ends. For extra functionality, transform it into a closet if youre a DIY weekend warrior. All youll need is a couple of days and these steps: First, frame the door opening for your new closet. Use a drywall saw to create the outline that ts the pre-hung door of your choice. Secure the hinged side to the frame and use wood shims (thin pieces of wood that will properly align the door) to ensure its a secure t within the opening. Next, youll need to create the closet walls inside. Measure the area of the closet and cut sheets of plywood or drywall to those dimensions (depending on how nished youd like the nal space to look). Paint the plywood in the color of your choice and install it by nailing it to the existing studs. Just keep in mind that drywall will require a few extra steps, like taping, mudding and sanding before its ready to paint. Now, determine what size storage containers and hooks the space will allow and create shelves and cubbies. Using a nail gun, install ledger strips around the entire closet to support the shelves, making sure theyre level. Secure with screws and install your painted shelves for a cozy and contained storage solution. If the construction of this project seems a bit too ambitious, reach out to a trusted con tractor to handle the building components. You can tackle the most fun part painting! Whether you have limited storage or are simply looking for ways to bring order to your home, now is the time to reorganize. With these suggestions, youll achieve a modernized and tidy living space, in no time at all. Fri031 I I J Jr'v -teat1 'Sm

Page 10 Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Your homes ooring mat ters. Not only can it aect property value, but its also a fundamental element of design and style. With so many choices available, it can be dicult choosing whats right for your family and home. Here are some guidelines that can help you make smart decisions that meet your budget and lifestyle.Choosing TileTiling your home can be a great home improvement to easily add value, says Keesha Hargis, a home dcor specialist. Easy to maintain, tile ooring tends to be very resistant to moisture, fading and scratches. Tile allows you to create a variety of looks in your home from Tuscan to modern with the use of stone, such as slate, travertine, marble, concrete and linen. Natural stone oors are beautiful and elegant, but they are not always ideal for families. However, todays engineered products are changing that. For example, pre-engineered tile ooring can be installed quickly with or without grout on any level of a home. Unlike natural stone that needs to be stained and maintained, this alternative can look better longer with minimal maintenance.Choosing CarpetThere is a vast selection of styles, colors, and bers to choose from in todays marketplace, but a simple checklist can help. The activity level of the home should be considered rst, says Hargis. For example, a traditional, patterned wool carpet may not be the right choice for a busy family with toddlers and pets. Nylon bers will hold up well to foot trac, but may not oer the stain resistance a well-used room may need. Carpets manufactured in todays polyester and polypropylene bers resist staining and can be found in vibrant colors and sharp multi-toned patterns, but may not last through years of heavy wear. Newer bers, however, are allowing for softness and durability to co-exist. They can oer the resilience a carpet in a well-used room needs. Some homeowners may want professional help in making their decisions. Think about consulting a qualied ooring specialist. Flooring is a long-term investment, so consider factors like maintenance and usage before making a nal decision.Family-friendly carpet and tile can add value to homeFrom StatePoint PHOTO PROVIDED BY STATEPOINTEasy to maintain, tile ooring tends to be very resistant to moisture, fading and scratches.

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Page 11 Everyone wants to go green, but because the movement has been around for many years, its hard for homeowners to get a rm grasp on what products will keep the environmental footprint created by their homes smaller. Take natural wood products, for example. Many home owners think using Western red cedar for decks, siding or other garden structures depletes the forest, when in fact, the exact opposite is true. Third-party forest-certication systems monitor forests, forest managers, loggers and the milling industry to ensure forests are legally harvested, replanted and sustainably managed. If you were to compare the number of trees growing today with the number from 100 years ago, youd discover certied forest managers have increased that number, helping to keep the air cleaner. Another interesting fact is that the manufacturing process to turn cedar trees into deck planks has a much smaller carbon footprint than what is associated with the production of other commonly used building materials like steel, cement, vinyl (PVC) and composites. Plus, if you choose to leave your deck a natural color allowing the Western red cedar to age into silvery gray you will have prevented a multitude of volatile organic compounds from being exposed to the air and water ecosystem. As a building product, natural wood is an excellent choice for decks, siding, raised garden beds, arbors and even garden benches. Its extremely versatile and easy to build with, because it can be cut and fastened together with other pieces or with another material all right at your home. Using natural cedar universally in your backyard will also provide your home with a beautiful accent color that you wont have to repaint or stain if you leave it natural. Another green factor of using natural wood is found in the disposal process. The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association says a deck made of cedar lasts for decades. Once that life cycle is over, because its a natural material, wood breaks down in landlls quickly and easily all while releasing minimal carbon dioxide. On the other hand, the wood could be used once again, reclaimed or repur posed for another use. If youve been looking to improve your environmental footprint, but were worried that those home improve ment projects on your to-do list were going to hinder your achieving that goal, now you know you can use natural wood products like Western red cedar and be worry free. So build that deck, replace the siding or add some beautiful structural elements to the backyard, and enjoy having a smaller environmental footprint at your home.Cedar helps reduce environmental footprint From BPT PHOTO PROVIDED BY BPTThe Western Red Cedar Lumber Association says a deck made of cedar lasts for decades.

Page 12 Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Its that time of year again, when outdoor enthusiasts take to campsites for weekends outdoors. And what sports fan ever turned down an opportunity for tailgating before the big game? When gearing up for that next big event, here are some things to keep in mind:Set UpOne important rule of thumb for both camping and tailgating is to be respectful of those around you. Dont infringe on anyone elses territory physically, or audibly. Everyone wants to enjoy their time unhindered, but you can be a friendly neighbor by setting the volume of your music at an appropriate level. The early bird catches the worm, so arrive with plenty of time to set up your space. For campers, that means well before sundown so you can get a lay of the land. For tailgaters, that means beating the crowds so you can get an ideal spot.Power UpHosting a barbecue in your backyard is one thing, but when youre at a campsite or tailgating, there are other considerations to keep in mind, such as power. You can keep your electronics charged, radio playing and your slowcookers heated with a reliable, portable generator just be sure you do your research before you make a purchase. Traditional camping generators run at a constant high speed, no matter how much power youre using. But newer computer-controlled models continuously adjust the engine speed to your power needs for grea ter eciency. Some generators are quieter and more ecient than traditional generators and provide smoother power for more sensitive equipment like laptops, cell phones and gaming consoles. When using a generator, be aware that engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas that can be deadly. Operate the portable generator outside with its exhaust pointed away far from occupied areas. Fuel is ammable so never refuel a hot or running generator. Do not operate a generator in rain or wet weather and use a ground fault circuit interrupter in any damp or wet location. Read and understand the complete list of hazards described in the operators manual before using a generator. SafetyWhen being exposed to heat, cold, sun and the elements, take extra safety precautions. Protect your self with sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses and bug spray. Pack plenty of drinking wa ter and stay hydrated even when the weather cools. Prepare for unforeseeable events, such as injuries and illness. A basic rst aid kit is a must. Before you leave for your trip, do an inventory to assure your kit is well stocked and medications are current. This camping and tailgating season, a bit of preparation can help you stay cool, powered up and safe.Make the most of tailgating From StatePoint PHOTO PROVIDED BY STATEPOINTIts that time of year again, when outdoor enthusiasts take to campsites for weekends outdoors.Vacation is supposed to be relaxing. But travelers fre quently let the details get the best of them. On your next trip, travel smart by stocking up on new technologies and accessories that can make the experience the breeze it was meant to be.Managing PhotosYour vacation photos are priceless, so protect them by storing them in the cloud where they will be safe from computer crashes and accidental deletion. There are sev eral storage services that allow unlimited storage, letting users easily organize their travel moments and share them via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, email or directly from the service.Protect DevicesKeep smartphones, tablets and laptops safe from Disney World sidewalks and European cobblestone streets with aordable cases and screen protectors. Secure HomeIs everything secure back at home? Use a smart home solution, so you can feel at-ease when leaving town. Several companies allow you to wirelessly monitor your home so you feel condent that it`s safe and secure. Through a mobile app, the system will alert you if anything goes wrong while youre gone. If the alarm is triggered, the system will let you know. Keep in TouchIf youre traveling internationally, calling home doesnt need to cost a fortune. There are apps you can download where you can place high quality calls at a fraction of the cost of traditional long distance calling and VoIP services.Travel-Friendly GearSearch online for functional travel gear that allows you to pass through security without having to remove your backpack. There is also a wet electronics rescue pouch available that contains a drying agent that safely removes moisture from sensitive electronics to prevent damage and quickly restore use. When you travel, a bit of smart planning can help you protect your home, your devices and your memories.ESSENTIAL TOOLS FOR TRAVEL 5 From StatePoint PHOTOS PROVIDEDWhen you travel, a bit of smart planning can help you protect your home, your devices and your memories. y r'e, .r t{map'R,-P rfiypr.erl,Odear9 a F,y C p.N 4C \yam', w.4 .ic, .ti

Shelters accept dogs and cats of every size and age, as well as other small companion animals like birds, rabbits and ferrets. PHOTO PROVIDED BY METRO CREATIVEChances are you can nd your ideal forever friend through adoption from a local animal shelter or rescue group.PHOTO PROVIDED BY METRO CREATIVEPet-proofing your home before adopting a shelter animalThe addition of a new pet to the family is always a cause for celebration. Stress can occur, too, no matter how welcome the new addition. When youre thinking about adopting a pet from an animal shelter, some preparation can help ensure he or she is as safe and happy as possible. Pet adoption saves a life and enriches the lives of the family who adopts, says Seth Estep, vice president and divisional merchandising manager for Tractor Supply Co., which sells pet supplies and coordinates pet adoptions at locations throughout the United States. Its such a rewarding way to bring a pet into your home when you adopt, its also import ant to do everything you can to make the adoption a success. If youre thinking about bringing a pet into your home, keep these tips in mind: More than 350,000 pets from more than 13,000 animal shelters and rescue groups nationwide are looking for homes, according to Petnder. com, a searchable database of pets that need homes. Twenty-ve percent of dogs in animal shelters are purebred. Shelters accept dogs and cats of every size and age, as well as other small companion animals like birds, rabbits and fer rets. Whatever type of pet your family is looking for, chances are you can nd your ideal forever friend through adoption. Its easy to nd a pet-adoption resource. In addition to shelters, many businesses and organizations sponsor pet adoption events. For example, Tractor Supply Co. has sponsored adoption events in its stores through a partnership with Petnder. com. In addition, Petnder. com can also help you nd a shelter or adoption organization near you anytime. Before you bring your new pet home, consider your storage of foods that are dangerous to pets, such as avocado, coee grinds, articial sweeteners, grapes or raisins, chocolate, onions, garlic and pills that may fall on the oor. Take steps to ensure pets do not come in contact with these substances, such as immediately disposing of coee grinds in outside trash bins, and storing potentially harmful foods in sealed containers where pets cant reach them. Be aware of plants that are potentially toxic to pets. Indoors, poinsettias can be harmful, especially to cats. Outdoors, hydrangeas and azaleas can make animals sick if they chew on leaves. Coach all family members, especially young children, on how to interact with a new pet. Shelter animals may be shy at rst, so its important for everyone to treat them with patience and love. Never allow children to pull an animals ears or tail, take food away from the animal, act aggressively toward the pet or disturb them when theyre sleeping. Discuss how your family will reward and encourage good behavior in your pet. For example, when a dog remembers not to jump on visitors, reward him with a treat or praise and petting. Prepare a pet emergency/rst aid kit. It should include treatment for common ailments such as bee stings, bumps, abra sions and upset tummies. If youre not sure what to include in your kit, consult your veterinarian or check out Petnder.coms guide on pet rst aid kits. Pet proof your home as much as possible. Dont leave out shoes (or other leather items like wallets) that could tempt dogs to chew. Be aware of stringy items that cats or dogs may swallow, such as hair ties, yarn or ribbon. Purchase a sturdy, tip-resistant trash can with a secure lid. Store cleaning supplies in a secure location where your pet cant access them. Theres no question that having a pet can make you happier and healthier, and bring your family closer together, Estep says. With the right preparation, you can ensure your adoption goes smoothly for every one especially your new pet.From BPT 487789 Need Housecleaning? Were Here To Help! Call Us Today For A FREE Estimate!

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Page 15 The building must be nearly done. Every day for months, youve seen it on your way to work. Youve watched it go from a hole in the ground, to a steel skeleton, to a behemoth structure that youre glad youll never have to enter. The whole place seems unwelcoming. But why? Why get the hee bie-jeebies over a building? In the new book The Language of Houses by Alison Lurie, youll see how that place and your home both have a lot to say. Ask any preschooler to draw a house and, if shes happy and secure, youll probably get Happy House with peaked roof, a door in the lower middle and symmetrical windows, surrounded by trees and a smiling sun. Yes, even at that age, we tend to instinctively link a simple home with good feelings. We also instinctively know what a building is for, just by looking at it. Theres no mistak ing a hospital, for instance, with a night club. A public building constructed of wood is slightly suspect unless its a church. Huge stone columns generally indicate that were entering somewhere formal (real or imagined), just as a porch swing and owers (even articial ones) say welcome. A buildings color says a lot, too: like business clothes, public build ings are usually neutrally-toned. Colors can indicate an intended dcor or the kind of merchandise youll nd in a store. Even lack of color speaks volumes about the people inside. As for that interior, we expect it to match the exterior. In our minds, therefore, Victorian charmers shouldnt contain post-modern furniture. Ranch homes, once the most popular builds, should be cozy and relaxed. It feels wrong to nd otherwise. On that note, consider this: many newly-built houses contain rooms that are rarely, if ever, used. Or this: when you were a kid, you were likely familiar with your friends bedrooms. Thats probably not the case now. Houses speak of gender, status, and age of their occupants. They can speak with local dialect or foreign accents. And despite that theyre inanimate objects, we fondly remember some and mourn others and thats natural. After all, says Lurie, we are a territorial species. When you think about it, whats in The Language of Houses is quite commonsensical. And maybe thats the point: author Alison Lurie makes you think about your home, your workplace, and what the outside world knows from them. Indeed, after reading this book, its really very dicult not to look at buildings in a dierent way and that includes churches, prisons, hospitals, and schools, all of which Lurie touches upon here. Youll also learn about the things inside our buildings, why we place furniture as we do, what specic rooms say about who we think we are, and a basic history of housing and fads. If you enjoy decorating, this book will build on your knowledge. Architecture fans will demolish it, as will historians. Readers in the mood for something dierent will also love The Language of Houses.

I F YOU WOULD LIKE A SOLD SIGN AT YOUR HOME L IST WITH THE S TETSON T EAM Photography, decorating, and helping people have always been a passion of mine. I have enjoyed designing home interiors and most recently decorating cakes for the last 10 years as a manager of one of the top bakeries in San Diego, CA. I came to Florida to work in the family business as a realtor to learn from some of the best in the profession and to have the opportunity to offer my eye for detail and design to happy families looking for their next home. The idea of selling a home near the beautiful Florida beaches seems more like a dream come true rather than a job. I m excited to meet new families and help them find their perfect place.
