Some residents still are digging themselves out of Florida's four major hurricanes within a six-
week period: Charley, Aug. 13; Frances, Sept. 4; Ivan, Sept. 15; and Jeanne Sept. 24. Venice was
lucky, avoiding a direct hit and experiencing only heavy winds and rain.

It was a dark and stormy night as serious hurricanes walloped the state in
the late summer of 2004. Not one, not two, not three, but four of the storms
made landfall in the space of about six weeks.

It's clear from the moment
you walk through Jem' Rust-
ler's front door, you have en-
tered the domain of a pet
lover. Walls are filled with
photos of his present and
past dogs. Life-size ceramic
danlmaons and tigers eye you
as you walk from one room to
the next.
hi the den is a homemade
shrine for Butterfly, with three
shelves of photographs neatly
displayed, surrounding But-
terfly's leash, near a small
decorated box that contains
her ashes.
"I miss her so much," Rust-
ler said. "I cry. for her every,
day."
Butterfly, a Nloth Papillon,
was his constant companion
for 14 years until she died on
her birthday, Aug. 19.
"We were inseparable,"
Ruster said. "She went wher-
ever I went. And I mean
everywhere. We were never
apart. Not one night.
"MyN friends know that if
you take Jerry somewhere,
you have to take Butterfly. We
were just so close."
The night she died, Jerry
Rustler took Butterfly home
and sat with her in his arms
all night because Ruster
"couldn't go to bed."
As it is with many retirees,
Ruster's pet was more than
just a pet. She filled a basic
human need.
"I live alone," said Rustler.

It's been four months since
Charley, leanne, I\an and
Frances pounded Florida's
shores. Agriculturally speak-
ing, that pounding, for some
orange groves, is still taking
place.
The ripple effects include


everything from getting a
tomato on a hamburger to
finding your favorite produce
in a local grocery store.

Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto
and Hardee counties, comes

Grove owners are prepared
to handle colder tempera-

co-owner of Nokomis Groves,
but they didn't know what to
expect from the hurricanes.
"You just never know from
year to year," said Henderson,
whose family has owned the
groves for 56 years. "We pre-
pared by bringing in loose
objects."
Florida's Department of

what to expect. As a result of

A defective heart
Butterfly was born with a
heart valve defect but had
been carefully monitored
over the years. Every June,
Rustler would take his 5-
pound, 4-ounce Papillon to
the Tampa Bay Clinic in
Largo, where a heart specialist
took X-rays, blood test and an
ultrasound of her heart. She
was treated with a drug called
Enacard.
The clinic vet told Rustler
that Butterfly would die of old
age before she would die of
heart problems because of
the excellent care she had
been given since birth.
Only a few weeks after the
last clinic visit, Rusder's local
veterinarian prescribed thy-
toid medication after taking
additional blood tests. Rustler
said he was shocked by that
because the specialist in Lar-

with him and said Butterfly
was fine.

Hospital sold and foundation disbanded


On the sale of Bon Secours Venice Hospital to a
for-prbfit chain, the Hospital Foundation will
cease to exist, with most of its assets going to Gulf
Coast Community Foundation of Venice and the
balance to a new foundation, making this Venice's
number-two story of 2004.


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR
It's one of life's coincidences
that Venice's hospital was sold
to a for-profit company the
same year the last of the "Four
Horsemen" who founded it
more than 50 years ago died.
Dr. Doug Murphy passed
away between the time Bon
Secours Healthcare an-
nounced it was searching for
an "equity partner" for its
Venice and Port Charlotte
facilities and the closing of the
sale of them to Health Mana-
gement Associates, expected
to be around the end of this
month.
The transition is already
under way An HMA informa-
tion services team arrived last
month. The hospital will run
parallel systems for a period,
with the conversion to HMAs
occurring on the turnover
date.
A management transition
team was expected to be in
about the first of the year.
Hospital CEO Mike Guley said
he will be replaced, but all
other top management mem-
bers have been promised jobs,
and lower-level staff are likely
to be retained as well.
"A lot of our employees
have been through this


before," Guley said earlier,
referring to the sale to Bon
Secours in 1995. "They know
that HMA, coming in, will
need quality employees."
InVenice, HMA is acquiring
the hospital; the health park
and surgery.center on Jaca-
randa Boulevard; the home
health agency; and the hospi-
tal's physician practices.
Bon Secours Healthcare is
separately trying to sell its
nursing home, assisted living
and rehab facilities in Venice.
Guley said it's his understand-
ing three companies have
been invited to perform due
diligence investigations prior
to making an offer on the facil-
ities. That deal likely will be
concluded in the first quarter
of 2005, he said.
Guley said his understand-
ing is that discussions bet-
ween HMA. and the Ocala
Heart Institute, which oper-
ates BSVH's open-heart sur-
gery program, have been
"highly optimistic." OHI has
operated the heart center
since it opened in the summer
of2002.

Year of changes





at Venice City Hall


Number-three story of the year saw faces
change and others receive pay raises.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

New city leadership after a
dozen years, the first pay raise
for council in two decades
and still no one steering the
finance department.
It's been a busy year at
Venice City Hall following res-
ignations,
retirements,
new council
'members and
pay raises.
The resig-
nation of
George Hunt
on Jan. 30
after 12 years
as city man- Hunt
ager kicked
off the changes downtown.
Health reasons were given for
Hunt's departure, though it
came as the conclusion to
several years of controversy
involving:
The Environmental Pro-
tection Agency investigation
of the city's wastewater treat-
ment facilities.
The investigation and dis-
ciplining of four utilities man-
agers in 2002 and 2003.

tion meeting because he

John Moore had taken over

director in Tallahassee never
surfaced when council rec-
ommended him for the city
manager job.
Longboat Key City Mana-
ger Bruce St. Denis asked
Black to resign in 2000
because he put up a Web site
advertising a private consult-
ing business that used his
Longboat Key-issued e-mail
*address. Venice was one of his
clients.
Black's brief brush with
controversy in Tallahassee
involved an audit that
allegedly showed he had
authorized expenditures
exceeding his authority.
The audit was released
three months after Black had
resigned to take the job in
Longboat Key No charges of
any kind resulted, and Black
denied any improprieties.
Council raises
City council members
received their
first pay raise
in 22 years
after voters ap
proved the
increase .
Council mem-
bers received
a $550 per
month raise
and the mayor Moore
a $650 per
month raise.
This bumps up their
monthly salary to $1,000 a
month for mayor, and $850 a
month for council members.
The increase brings the annu-
al salaries to $10.200 for coun-
cil and $12,000 for the mayor.
All seven of the council
positions still are considered
part time, though many
members estimate they
spend 70-plus hours every
month in meetings, prepara-
tion and community func-
tions.
Council also receives a full


benefits and retirement pack-
age offered to other city
employees, but at no cost.
Venice Finance Department
estimates this to cost about
$7,000 a year for each mem-
ber, though that's for individ-
ual health plans, not the fam-
ily plan.
Current council members
getting free
family health
insurance are
John Moore,
Vicki Taylor '
and Mayor -
Dean Cala-

Corunc il
member Rick Calamaras
Tacy, has an
individual
health plan, while neither
Fred Hammett or John Sim-
monds use the free health
insurance.
Finance director?
After only five weeks on the
job, James Olson abruptly
turned in his resignation in
August, catching all of city
government off guard -
except for those in James-
town, N.Y. Olson returned to
his former job, blaming the
sudden move to an inability
to find a Venice house and
other financial issues.
Council was shocked and
upset, though some say
Olson's resignation may have
been a blessing in disguise.
"I don't know how much
confidence I can have in a
finance director who can't
keep up with his own
finances," council member
John Moore said in August.
Venice remains without a
finance director, following the
retirement of long-time
leader Mike McPhail. The job
remains posted, but no inter-
views have been conducted.
The mayor plans to resume
finance director searches in
January.

Utility managers



shown the door for OMI


Number-five top story ends years of controversy
at city's wastewater treatment plant.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

In a swift exchange of
power, Venice's water utilities
management changed hands
overnight in an effort to bal-
ance the budget.
The reality turned out to be
a resolution of years of con-
troversy swirling around the
wastewater treatment plant
operations. Sixteen' city
employee positions were
eliminated, including Utilities
Director John Lane and
Assistant Utilities Director Pat
Wilson.
"Let's face it, the manage-
ment and handling of the util-
ity department has been an
embarrassment the past few
years, and I think the city
manager sees this as a way
out," Lane told city council in
an effort to stop the transi-
tion. "The utility department,
in my opinion, is not in a bad
financial situation ...
Certainly, do some soul
searching, especially for all
the people you're about to
displace."
Council members voted 6-
1 to approve a private man-
agement contract with
Operations Management


International. Only Vicki
Taylor voted against the pro-
posal.
For a flat fee of about
$750,000, OMI says it can do
the same amount of work the
16 city employees did for
about $1.1 million worth of
salaries and benefits.
Immediately after the vote,

was escorted out.
Venice Utilities Depart-
ment has faced multiple
investigations and controver-
sies for the past three years,
only to watch them quickly be
resolved in 2004 under City
Manager Marty Black's
tenure.
Here's a brief recap:
Civil.Lawsuit-- On July 6,
three wastewater department
workers filed a ,civil suit
against the city for "unlawful,
retaliatory employment


actions." An agreement was
reached, paying out $81,500
and guarantee ajob for one of
the workers, whose position
was terminated through the
OMI deal: .
DEP State investigators
settled with the city when
council approved the agree-
ment July 27. For three years
Florida accused Venice of
unlawful reclaimed water dis--
charges and of hiding sewage
spills. Venice accepted a
$68,000 fine and state review
of Eastside Wastewater
Treatment Plant operations.
Certifications Proper
operating certificates for
laboratory facilities,
asbestos-concrete pipe
maintenance and other util-
ity department areas were
being questioned at the
state and federal levels. The
contract with OMI now pro-
vides blanket coverage
where the private company's
managers are responsible
for certifications, not the
city.
EPA- This federal inves-
tigation continues with no
deadline in sight. The probe
began to determine if waste-
water supervisors forged doc-
uments to conceal sewage
spills.

A year ago, the number-six story appeared to be
the creation of an airport business park, but city
council has decided to get the public more
involved in the future of this major asset.


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


The biggest story of the
year at the Venice Municipal
Airport probably is what did-
n't happen, which is saying
something when you consid-
er some of the things that did:
In January a plane crash
just south of the airport
claimed the lives of two
Charlotte County men.
In March a fire at a
hangar destroyed three
planes and a helicopter.
In May an Englewood
accountant died in another
crash.
In August three people
walked away from a "hard"
landing that damaged their
jet.
In December, Airport
Manager Robert Hernandez
announced his resignation
due to family obligations
after barely a year on the
job.
But what didn't happen
was the selection of a compa-
ny to develop up to 125 acres
of airport property, an action
that, if and when it does
occur, will change the airport
forever.
Three companies The
Folsom Group out of
Sarasota; WCI, developers of
the Venetian Golf & River
Club; and the Waterford
Companies '- submitted
similar visions for the project,
but were sent back to the.

federal law requires the air-
port to be self sustaining.
Although there is about $1

largely earmarked to match
federal and state grants for
airport improvements.
According to Hernandez,
the fund needs an additional

By the start of next huri-
cane season, Venice Beach
will have an entirely new layer
of sand to replace the at least
40 feet that was washed away
last summer.
With city officials by her
side, U.S. Rep. Katherine
Harris, R.-13, announced a
week before Election Day
from the barren rocks at
South lerry that $7 million
worth of beach renourish-
ment money has been reap-
propriated to'Venice. Army
Corps of Engineers had its
money for Venice removed
earlier in 2004.
On top of that, the local
beach is No. 6 on the Florida
priority list, meaning the pro-
ject will be finished before the
start of next hurricane season,
according to Jacqueline Kei-
ser, project manager with the
Army Corps of Engineers.
"That $7 million was so dif-
ficult to get through because
the federal and state govern-
ments have not in the past
been supportive of beach
renourishment issues -
philosophically," Harris said
in October. "They're really
coming to understand now
that extended beaches can
help mitigate the damage that
will occur with hurricanes,
and as we face additional hur-
ricanes every season."
This fulfills the federal con-
tract agreed to a decade ago to
restock Venice's beaches every
10 years because the man-
made jerry inlets alter wave
currents and increase the
affects of beach erosion.
City council members and
City Manager Marry Black
credit Harris with advocating
for the money throughout her
term in Congress. Harris said
the greatest hurdle lias been
changing the federal philoso-
phy that beach renourishment
is not a worthwhile project.
The price tag for restocking
Venice Beach with sand has
gone up, but the city manager
isn't worrying about it. City
engineer surveys following
every hurricane helped Ven-
ice get an extra $4 million in
federal funding.
U.S. Army Corps of En-


gineers have the final cost for
renourishing lost sand from
Venice Beach at $17.2 million,
about $5 million more than
pre-hurricane estimates. Fed-
eral funding has been in-
creased to $14.2 million, with
about $4 million worth a di-
rect result of city staff tracking
how much sand was lost fol-
lowing every storm, Black
said.
All that's holding up the
project now are Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection permits. This last
set of permits, essentially, are
needed to prove the habitat
where sand is renioved deep
in the Gulf of Mexico will not
be damaged.
Permits at all other levels of
government already have
been granted. The project,
from the South Jerry south
past Venice Beach, is expected
to be finished before the start
of next hurricane season, as
long as state permits are
granted.


No issue was more controversial than whether
Planned Parenthood belonged in school's life
management classes.

DETECTING GUM PROBLEMS
Red. bleeding, puffy, or swollen gums may alert the individual to a
problem, but the diagnosis of periodontitis requires professional
evaluation to determine if true periodontal pocketing is present.
Long-standing periodontal disease or rapid destruction of bone .may
be recorded without necessarily indicating that any teeth will be lost.
When the pocket approaches the entire length of the root, which may
be 8 or 10 millimeters, or extends between the roots of a molar crown,
risk of tooth loss is much greater. Treatment has so improved that
many of these previously "hopeless" teeth can now be saved. Some
teeth, however, are beyond the help of dentistry's best efforts.
Loss of a few teeth from advanced disease does not mean that all the
teeth will be lost. Some people insist that all their teeth be removed
even though only a few require extraction. It is their mistaken belief
that periodontitis will inevitably destroy the remaining teeth anyway.
Not true! Get the facts from your dentist.

"It's not a very wise deci-
sion, but that's not really my

Additional reading

SIn May, parents began to
-address the school board dur-


ing public meetings. At first,
school officials looked at the
state guidelines surrounding
sex education. But after guest
speaker guidelines were
modified. Planned Parent-
hood opponents continued
to address the board.
The matter came to a head
on Dec. 7 at a school board
meeting more than 300 resi-
dents attended.
A standing-room-only
crowd listened as Norris and
five school board members
announced a compromise
offering two LM classes.
Families could choose be-
tween a course offering
school-based guest speakers
or one with outside guest
speakers.

unusual since parents were
always given the choice to

ed portion of the class.

County buys railroad corridor

for future trails system
After more than a decade of discussions and negotiations,
Sarasota County has completed the purchase of a key 12.8-mile
railroad corridor that is expected to be the centerpiece of a future
county trails system.
The approximately 100-foot-wide railroad corridor comprising
about 155 acres stretches from just over a mile south of State Road
72 (Clark Road) to the southern terminus near Center Road. It
connects several county and state parks, including Oscar Scherer
State Park; spans two waterways, Shakett Creek and Roberts Bay;
and links to other amenities such as the Venice Train Depot.
The county recently purchased the scenic corridor for $11,750,000
from the Trust for Public Land (TPL), which only hours earlier had
closed on the property owned by CSX Transportation Inc., and
leased to Seminole Gulf Railway.
TPL, a national nonprofit land conservation organization, was
asked by the county in 2003 to negotiate with CSX for the long-
awaited purchase. Founded in 1972, TPL is dedicated to protecting
land for human enjoyment and well-being. TPL will donate $150,000
toward building the trail system.
County Commissioner David R. Mills, a longtime recreational trails
proponent, called the railroad corridor "the linchpin in the county's
trail system." He noted that the county has been trying to acquire the
railroad corridor since 1991.
The project was funded by telecommunication taxes, ad valorem
taxes and the infrastructure surtax continuation funds.
County staff members plan to meet with representatives of the
Florida Department of Transportation about a possible partnership
on development of a recreational trail along the railroad corridor.

Lopez makes sea of changes at VHA


Venice Art Center banking on pig project


In our ninth story of the year, rats, roaches, drug

dealers, rent cheats and other lawbreakers are on

the run at Grove Terrace with Peter Lopez on the

job.


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

There's a new sheriff in
town and his name is Peter
Lopez, and Grove Terrace will
never be the same.
It was just a year ago that
Lopez, a certified public ac-
countant, took over as Venice
Housing Authority executive
director.
The rats and roaches
seemed to know, for they all
but disappeared when Lopez
came on board. So have most
of the drug dealers and rent
cheats that preyed on the
good people of Grove Terrace.
Lopez doesn't look back,
only forward.
"Justina (Mitchell) is the


residents gathered at Eng-
lewood's Community Pres-
byterian Church in 1989 to
pray for peace throughout the
world. The event moved to
various churches over the
years, drawing bigger crowds
every year, Schryver said. Last
year's drew around 800. The
Southwest Florida Coalition
for Peace and Justice is the
sponsor.


first of our residents who has
successfully completed our
self-sufficiency program," Lo-
pez said in November. "This
individual could double her
earnings."
Mitchell successfully com-
pleted a certified nursing
assistant study course.
That's not the Grove
Terrace that at one time was
so badly managed the city
threatened to take it over.
Some credit also goes to city
code inspectors and the
Municipal Code Enforcement
Board, whichhelped push for
needed improvements at the
complex.
Lopez, 50, and with a track
record in public housing in
Fort Myers, has his own ideas


This is the first year the
event has been held outside
Englewood. Epiphany Ca-
thedral is the only venue in
the area large enough for a
crowd anticipated at 1,200-
1,500 people, according to
Schryver.
"We wanted to let people
know (the event is) growing,"
said longtime Englewood
peace activist Peter Duisberg,


of how a low-income project
should be run.
"The first (priority) is to
provide safe and decent
housing and the second is to
provide economic opportuni-
ty," Lopez said.
Lopez said there are
presently five Grove Terrace
residents in various stages of
the self-sufficiency program.
Another giant leap Lopez
made was to practically sin-
glehandedly uncover some
rent fraud.
Venice Police Detective
Howard Dunn said it best:
"Lopez is the first guy over
there we've had come to us
with welfare fraud," Dunn
said earlier. "He's cracking
down on fraud and drugs."
Two arrests were made.
Glenis Harps, 32, and
Lester J. Bell, 56, both of 400
block Substation Road, Ven-
ice, were charged with fraud
in public assistance.
Their cases are pending.


"not being stolen byVenice."

Duisberg said the world
needs a message of peace.
"What we really feel is
we're in a mess now,"
Duisberg said, "and we have
to get out'of it together.

Ou 10th story of the year is about the Pigs in

Paradise fund-raiser for the Venice Art Center.


BYKIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Shark teeth gave way to
pigs as the No. 1 tourist draw
in Venice this year.
Piggy-backing on the suc-
cess of Chicago's cows, New
York City's cows, Orlando's
geckos, Cleveland's guitars
and Naples' alligators, the
"Shark Tooth Capital of the
World," went hog wild.
For proof, take a stroll
through downtown Venice,
visit a Venice Publix store, the
main library on South Noko-
mis Avenue, the Venice Art
Center or the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice.


In a town with just 19,000
residents, 40 portly porkers
are bound to be noticed,
especially when they are
preening and parading along
the main avenue, hanging out
on every corner and even
straddling the median ofVen-
ice Avenue.
A few are close enough to
T.J. Camey's Pub.& Grill that
one of these nights, no one
would be surprised"if they
belly up to the bar espe-
cially the folks who stay too
long at the bar themselves.
The. pigs will remain on
display during the coming
season before being auc-
tioned off to the highest bid-
der, climaxing the biggest


fund-raiser ever devised by
the Venice Art Center.
The VAC has already made
a profit from its "porker
patrons," and could clear as
much as $400,000 more dur-
ing the auction.
Paul and Lynn Moseley
were the Porker Pushers,
selling nearly every one of
the pigs and then helping'to
haul the hogs from the VAC
to the. artists and then to
Electro-Bake for coating
before they could be in-
stalled inVenice.
Tonya Sauppe, a VAC
board member, paired spon-
sors with artists and also
painted one pig, that spon-
sored by Realtor Lueanne
Wood.
For more information on
the pigs, see the story on Page
1 of today's Our Town section.

ed the Shark's Tooth Capital of
the World, but we did get
some of the leftovers in the
form of grim skies and-
enough rain to be a nuisance.

Rescue effort
Like life, it is not the prob-
lems we have for we all
have them but how we
handle them that counts.
So it was with the attack of
the four.hurricanes.
- The rescue effort came to-
gether like clockwork, thanks to
lessons learned from Hurricane
Andrewin 1992 and the terror-


ist attacks on Sept 11,2001.
The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office was one of the first
agencies to assist in the
Hurricane Charley disaster in
Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte
and ArcadiaAug. 13.
"We used our chopper to fly
in police radios Friday night,"
Sgt. Chuck Lesaltato said earli-
er. "Then, we sent three ERTs
into North Port."
Emergency Response Teams
can be assembled quickly in
the event of a disaster. Each
team member is a highly
trained specialist in areas rang-


ing from weapons of mass
destruction to natural disas-
ters to search and rescue and
traffic control.
'After that team of deputies
completed their assignment,"
Lesaltato said, "they and an-
other ERT went to DeSoto
County and Punta Gorda."
The next day, a fresh ERT
was sent to DeSoto County.

LOSS frompagelA


erinary Clinic of Sarasota that
fateful night, the doctor on
call looked at the medication
she had been taking and said
it was too powerful to use on
her, according to Rustler.
Levothyroxine, the drug
prescribed for Butterfly, is a
synthetic thyroid hormone.
Thyroid hormones increase
the body's heart rate and
entire metabolism.
Drug literature states that
large doses may produce seri-
ous or even life-threatening
manifestations of toxicity.
Levothyroxine is contra-indi-
cated in patients with acute
myocardial infarction and
precautioned in patients with
cardiovascular disorders.
Like something right out of
the TV series "ER," Butterfly's
last breaths were recorded on
her chart:
"The patient presented in
respiratory distress. She is a
small..breed .canine species
that has a long history of car-
diac complications. ... It is
currently out of control. (A)s
we were about to transfer the
patient to radiology for imag-
ing of her chest, she arrested.
-CPR was immediately insti-
tuted ... The heart stopped
beating and 1 cc of ephi-
nephrine was administered
IC. The patient was complete-
ly unresponsive. ... The
patient's death was called."
Two hours after arriving at
the emergency clinic, Jerry
Rustler's dog was dead.
Looking for answers
Copies of records provided
to the Venice Gondolier Sun
show the local veterinarian
called in prescriptions for
Levothyroxine on two occa-
sions. The first prescription
was for 30 Levothyroxine pills
with a dosage of 0.05 mg. The
second prescription was
called into PetMed. On this
occasion, '120 pills were
ordered with a dosage of 0.5
mg, 10 times the previous
dosage.
Rustler gave Butterfly the

medication on a daily basis,
as prescribed.
"Butterfly would know
when it was time to take her
heart pills," Rustler said. "She
would hold her head up with
her mouth open. I'd just drop
it in, and she would swallow
it."
Rustler said he contacted
his veterinarian on three oc-
casions, concerned that But-
terfly was panting excessively.
After Butterfly's death,
Rustler wanted to understand
what had happened.
"I asked my veterinarian,
'Was it PetMed that made the
mistake?' She told me, 'No. It
was me.' The doctor owned
up to her mistake," according
to Rustler.
Rustler said the veterinari-
an apologized, and added
that she was not perfect.
"That's not good enough,"
said Rustler. "It was so cold. I
just can't accept that. At dthe
very least you'd think she
would offer me another Papil-
lon. But she didn't. She of-
fered no replacement. No
restitution. No nothing."
The veterinarian is not be-
ing named because a licens-
ing complaint is pending re-
view, but she stands by her
treatment.
"I took excellent care of her
all those -ears." she said while
declining to comment on the
specifics of Rustler's claims.
"There is more to this. Mr.
Rustler called in the prescrip-
tion. I would caution others
about using online pharma-
cies. I think that's your real
story."

Rustler wanted to seek
replacement costs and com-
pensation for pain and suffer-

ney, who has since backed
out of the case for unrelated
reasons. Now, he isn't sure he
wants to shell out up to $500
on his limited budget for a
civil case.
Rustler was disappointed
to find out pets are viewed
under Florida law as chattel
- ordinary property that
depreciates over time. With
Butterfly already near the end
of her life expectancy, she
would be depreciated down
to nearly no value, Rustler
said.
There is no compensation
for sentimental value or other
emotional damages.
And it would likely be a
tough case to prove. Butterfly
was cremated before a toxici-
ty report could be performed,
so there is no firm evidence of
the cause of death. Another
hurdle: finding a veterinarian
willing to testify that the dose
giyen was 10 times the nor-
mal dose for a dog of
Butterfly's size, and likely con-
tributed to her death.
Rustler did recently file a
complaint with the Florida
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation that
will be reviewed by a panel of
past and present members of
the Florida Board of
Veterinary Medicine.
The vet has practiced near-
ly 10 years in Florida and has
a spotless record; with no
complaints filed at the DBPR.
Whatever happens, at
DBPR or in court, won't erase
Rustler's feelings of guilt.
"I was following the doc-
tor's directions," he said. "I
had given her a pill that she
opened her mouth willingly
for, because she knew her
Dad would never hurt her.
And this pill killed her. I have
to live with that memory."


mates indicate agriculture
losses exceeding $2 billion.
Florida citrus alone faced a
$400 million loss, according
to a press release.
"These losses are unprece-
dented in the state's history
and will be devastating to
Florida's economy given that
agriculture is second only to
tourism as a top industry in
the state," Bronson stated.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture released $222 mil-
lion for Florida's hurricane
disaster relief in October.
"Florida's farmers and farm
workers have been devastated
by back-to-back hurricanes
that wiped out crops, severely
damaged nurseries, dairy and

"Fortunately, there wasn't a

"Many lost some trees but not

According to tax records,
Carlton said, there are at least
2,000 growers in Sarasota,


Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee

started right after Thanks-
giving, the full extent of dam-
ages for pickers has not been
determined, she said.
Federal programs, howev-

tice of high levels of damages.
If 15-35 percent of a grove was
damaged. Carlton said, it can

A cap of $80,000 has been
set "per entity," Carlton said.
That means that growers with

ages can receive $80,000 for
crop or tree loss.

OUR VIEW




It's not too early to plan for hurricane season


s the bad weather around this country
and the devastation wrought by the.
tsunami in Asia should remind us,
Mother Nature can unleash her fury in many
ways, some predictable, some not. We can
prepare for hazards we are likely to confront,
and the time for Floridians to do so is now.
The 2004 hurricane season is over but its
four hurricanes particularly Charley-will
not soon be forgotten. For many people and
many areas, particularly in Charlotte and
DeSoto counties, the cleanup and the re-
building will take months, if not years. That'
"season" is not over.
But, for mary of those people, as well as
many who came through the storms with
"only" emotional scars, there remains a big
question: How do we prepare for the next big
storm?
First, we would all hope for improved tech-


nology. We'd like to really know where and
when a hurricane is going to land. We'd like to
know how wide its swath will be. We'd like to
know how deep its destruction.
There is technology you can take advan-
tage of now: reinforced garage doors, storm-
resistant windows, hurricane shutters. Don't
try to get these things when a storm is head-
ing this way.
Similarly, you should check whether you
have wind coverage on your homeowner's
insurance, and consider whether you should
have flood insurance too. Once a storm is
within "the window" and still days from
the state --no such coverage can be written,
Those policies and your other important
papers should be in a weatherproof contain-
erin your hurricane box, along with some
cash bills and change.
All of us know now that we really do need


to have that hurricane box stored away where
we can get to it easily, right?.
We should have flashlights and lots of bat-
teries. We should have plastic sheets that can
be aped to broken windows and, of course,
the tape. We should have a manual can open-
er and cans of pre-cooked food. We know we
should have bottles and bottles of water.
There should be a battery-operated radio
in the box. There should always be an abun-
dance of ice cubes in the freezer. We know we
should never let our car's gasoline gauge dip
below half-full.
Those who can afford it know that a gener-
ator (along with a few cans of gasoline and
some oil) is almost a necessity. But, be careful
where you store them.
And we all need to have a plan for when we
know a storm's coming. A friend in need is a
friend indeed.


If it's going to be a CategoryI or II, is our
home or shelter built well enough thatwe can
ride it out? Ifit's going to be a II, IV orV where
will we go?
Last summer it would have done us little
good to move farther inland or even to go to
friends or family on the east coast of Florida,
since they were seeing the same possibility of
landfall as residents were here.
We know the post-hutricane drill, too. We
know about getting blue tarps for our dam-
aged roofs. We know about FEMA. We know
to get in line (quickly) to get insurance reim-
bursement. We know to get in the other lines
that will lead to new roofs, electric power,
window replacement and repaired homes.
No one who thought this area was
immune to hurricanes still thinks that way.
With that new knowledge should come a
sense of the need to prepare.


Wish listfor 2005 _e 1


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

While we are envisioning
what we want Venice to look
like in the future, I thought
maybe I would go over what I
would like to see accom-
plished this year:
Have the Boys & Girls Club
begin construction of its new
facility in Verlice.
' Have the Hatchett Creek
Bridge finished, painting over
the, pink (which does, howev-
er, go well with the pigs).
Condemn and tear down
the gas station at the corner of
Indian Way and U.S. 41
Business.
Repave Tampa Avenue
downtown; it has huge cracks
init.
Replace the old sewer pipes
on the Esplanade and Tarpon
Center Drive.
Develop an exciting but
somewhat modified plan for
the airport that might include
a marina, a hotel (which we
need desperately) and a rest-L
aurant. Possibly a movie the-
ater. .
.Tear down the old sewage
storage tanks and develop a
plan for the beacl next to
Sharky's.
Finish the Venetian Water-
way Park around Darby Buick
and Marine Max, as well as the
east side from the Circus
Bridge to Shamrock Park.
Abandon the stupid plan to
raise the Shakett Creek bridge
in Nokornis that will trigger
millions more in expense for
the advantage of a few home
owners who want their prop-
erties to go up in value or who
want larger boats. Safety is not
an issue.
Build the new park next to
the Venice Little Theatre.
Landscape the medians
and roadsides on the bypass
in front of Kmart, Albertson's
and everywhere else land-
scaping was not included.
That should never be allowed
to happen.
,Have the Venice Police De-
partment get its accreditation.
Have .the new hospital
owners come in and get the
hospital on a sound economic
footing and contribute to the
community in a significant
manner.
Bring U.S. 41 Business into
the theme district, but change
the Architectural Review
Board's threshold for when it
gets involved in reviewing'
changes to a building.
i Adopt an ordinance to re-
strict jets from taking off be-
tween say, 10 p.m.-7 a.m.
Have the city council make


its benefits match that of its
employees instead of being
better than theirs.
Make recycling mandatory
in the city of Venice. Why
should some people not have
to save our landfill?
Get the Pinebrook exten-
sion done: Also, finish the
Center Road widening that
should have been going be-
fore now.
Put in a tiered system for
charging for water to decrease
use.
Create a plan for the devel-
opment of the city to the east
*and north that includes how
those areas will integrate to-
gether and feel a part of a dis-
tant core city.
Have the county work
harder 'with the'city todird
soling road problems suchMhs
Knights Trail, Border Road and
the extension of Jacaranda
Boulevard.
See the beach renourish-
ment plan get put in place for
2006.
See the opening of the ren-
ovated Venice Community
Center before next season.
Have United Way exceed its
goal of $525,000 by a lot.
Aggressively go after people
running red traffic lights and
blocking the intersections.
Get the Gulf Coast Com-
mutity Foundation of Venice
to work with other local foun-
dations on joint projects for
the betterment of the commu-
nities it serves.
Pave the Loufek property so
we can take care of more cars
at the beach.
Get the old Landmark turn-
ed into a great new restaurant.
Please, no condos there.
See the YICA begin its
huge expansion plans but
only if it is financially ready.
See the development of the
areawhere the Elks, American
Legion and Moose were be-
come a real nice addition to
downtown, as Mike Miller has
done in many other projects.
The Gondolier Sun wins
best weekly in the state for the
seventh year in a row and
makes some major improve-
ments to the paper for its cus-
tomers.
You may have some others
you'd like to see; feel free to
pass them on to me.
******

By's Crack: For the
'new year I didn't resolve
to give up one doggone
thing. I figure at my age,
I'm entitled to any vice I
can still manage.


I went by the Venice Beach
this week when it warmed up
a bit and every parking space
was taken; including the new
parking .lot. Glad we will be
adding more parking at the
pier and in the Caspersen
area.

A look back gives perspective on the future


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST

The start of a new year is
an excellent time to look
back. It gives us some per-
spective on where we are
today compared to the past.
Here are some 1904-05 sta-
tistics and events. You can
reflect on the past 100 years,


look at us now and imagine
where we will be in 2105.
If we change as much in
the next 100 years, what will
that bring us?
In 1904-5 the average life
expectancy in the United
States was 47 years 33 for
African-Americans.
Ninety percent of all U.S.
physicians had no college
education. Instead, they at-.
tended medical schools,
many of which were con-
demned in the press and by
the government as substan-
dard.
More than 95 percent of all
births in the United States
took place at home.
The five leading causes of
death in the .United States


were pneumonia and influ-
enza, tuberculosis, diarrhea,
heart disease and stroke.
Only 14 percent of the
homes in the United States
had a bathtub.
Only 8 percent of the
homes had a telephone. A
three-minute call from Den-
ver to NewYork City cost $11.
The average U.S. worker
made between $200 and $400
per year. The average wage in
the United States was 22 cents
an hour, bringing in $12.98
for a 59-hour week..
A competent accountant
could expect to earn $2,000
per year, a dentist $2,500 per
.year, a veterinarian between
$1,500 and $4,000 per year,
and a mechanical engineer


about $5,000 per year.
Sugar cost 4 cents a pound,
eggs 14 cents a dozen, coffee
15 cents a pound and a first-
class stamp was 2 cents.
Federal spending was a bit
more than half a billion dol-
lars, unemployment 5.4 per-
cent.
There were only 8,000 cars
in the United States, and only
144 miles of paved roads. The
maximum speed limit in
most cities was 10 mph.
The first part of the New
York City subway was open-
ed.
The United States began
construction of the Panama
Canal.

Caller tired of taking a walk on the wild side


Take a hike. Venice allows development along streets with-
out the requirement of sidewalks. An example is Auburn Road
north of East Venice Avenue. Traffic here has increased to the
point where a traffic light has been planned for the very near
future, yet walkers or bike riders must share the road with the
this increased traffic. Venice doesn't need mediocrity in regard
to sidewalks and public safety. It is too much to require devel-
opers to provide sidewalks in front of their developments, if we
require residents to build sidewalks in front of their houses.
Let's not participate in Florida's dubious position of the most
unsafe streets in the country.


Over-reaching. Ellen Hill-
strom's written thoughts on
the potential annexation of
South Venice are over-reach-
ing. I think she has been at
her job too long.
Gray. Newspapers are said
to be black and white and red
all over. The I 'enice Gondolier
Sun is gray. Please buy some


blackink.
On hold, I have been trying
to get hold of someone in
South County and have been
on hold for one hour. I have a
serious problem that I have to
ask the count. Can anyone
tell me what to do to reach
someone in South County? I
have a serious problem and


need to reach someone.
Impeach him. A year after
President Bush landed on the
aircraft carrier and announc-
ed the war was over, we have
lost more than 1,000 U.S.
lives. Bush should be im-
peached. It is pitiful whathe is
doing to people and our
country.
Cruel. We have two new
Christmas movies that dem-
onstrate cruelty to animals.
One is "Meet the Fockers," in
which a dog is flushed down
the toilet, and'the other is
"Christmas With the Kranks,"
in which a cat is frozen in ice
until you can see only his
eyes. I think this is teaching
children that such things are
possible and funny. It is sad


people will pay to see these
movies. This is cruelty to ani-
mals. These particular inci-
dents are featured in the ads
for these movies. It is teaching
the wrong things.
Tired. I am tired of reading
in the column about people
crying their eyes out about
the noise from the airport.
The airport was there before
they moved. Why did they
move near an airport? What a
stupid move.
Not happy. I saw on TV that
they counted the times the
president said "Happy Hol-
idays" on a recent speech. Was
he afraid to say "'lerry Christ-
mas"? Is he taking Christmas
out of our government?
Closed. I am reading the

There are now three groups
collecting and giving out
money for health care. All of
them are closely located on the
island of Venice. GCCFV has
not only its health grants but
grants created by the $18 mil-
lion from the Hospital Foun-
'dation. lim Woods will be
heading the\Venice Health Care
Foundation with a small capi-
tal base, and there is the old
Hospital Auxiliary that no
longer is under the hospital but
is now a 501(c)(3) on its own.


I am sorry that the two
foundations within a 9-iron of
each other are under separate
operating structures. That will
only cause people to apply to
many different groups, some-
times for the same thing. I
hope each can develop a niche
that sets it apart from the other
-to rrmike the lines of applica-
on a little clearer.
The overhead at the new
foundation will likely be as
large as the grants it makes,
which is quite wasteful. The
new money to GCCFV will iri-


crease its funds toward $200
million, which will lower its
cost basis.

If you're not a Y member, for

weeks and get all the same
goodies as a member. Both
get a T-shirt upon successful'
completion of the program.

teaming up with a girl named Shantel Jordan to win the Junior
Pairs championship at the U.S. Nationals in Atlanta.

in the Southern States Football League. Comprised of players
from mostly Sarasota County, the Vikes made their debut Jan.

Hallelujah! The drought is

losing ways in the seventh-
place consolation game of
Coach Eddie Shannon Holi-
day Classic Wednesday.
The Indians stopped their
seven-game skid with an
exclamation 'point, burying
young and tiny St Petersburg-
Northeast, 62-25, in action at
the Manatee High gym.
Venice finished 1-2 in the
tournament but could have
easily been 2-1 if it weren't for
a late fold-up against Hardee
County on Tuesday night.
"We're a young team and
we have to work on finishing
ballgames," Venice coach
Tom McLaughlin said. "I like
our group and think we can
make a run in the second half
of the season."
A big second quarter al-
lowed Venice to head into the
locker room with a comfort-
able advantage. The Indians
only led by five points after
the first quarter but outscored


Kyle Abney

Northeast 16-4 in the second
session to hold a safe 27-10
lead at the half.
Venice dominated the
boards against Northeast,
winning the rebounding bat-
tle 40-19. The, Indians also
shot well. Theywere 20-for-39
in two-pointers and 4-for-10
in three-pointers.
Guard George Stritz, who
had been cold the first two
games in the tournament,
caught fire, canning three
treys and coming away with a
team-high 14 points.

Running resolutions in 2005


As many of.us wipe away
that weird crusty stuff that
gathers in the corer of your
eye following a NewYear's Eve
that drifted into New Year's
Day, the reality of promised
resolutions for 2005 made
hastily the previous night
stare back from the bathroom
mirror.
Cold sweats pop up as I
think about mine it's time
to quit smoking.
"What? You smoke? But,
you do all that jogging," has
been the most frequent com-
ment the past month or so.
I've explained away the
confusion about how a jogger
can also be a smoker, inform-
ing others the key is to wait
until after a run, to smoke.
Sweat tends to dribble down
your arm and ruin the ciga-
rette if you smoke and jog at
the same time.

Why now?
Defensive humor aside,
there really is no reason .to
continue smoking, I'm calling
myself out and here's why I
should do it now.
SHealth One of those
annoying anti-smokers until
19 years old, the health
impact of my dozen years at a
pack-a-day habit could be
reversed. No matter the age or
length of smoking, positive
health benefits always result
after quitting, according to
what I've read.
Money- Let's face it, I'm
going broke in order to sup-
port an addiction. Does this
make sense? As is becoming a
health insurance trend, my
premiums are higher because


BACK OF THE PACK
I smoke and then there's the
$3 a pack spent every day.
SRunning Need I say
more?

Annual resolutions
Following through on reso-
lutions has become a big deal
for me.
Back in 2002, my goal was
to complete my .-second
marathon before turning 30
years old after taking a
decade off from running.
Mission accomplished at the
2002 Columbus Marathon.
In 2003, the goal was to
,finally venture outside the,
safety of my home state. Ohio,
and see what the world has to
offer.
The initial move brought
me to Sarasota before wind-
ing up inVenice, and Iplan on
never leaving.
This year's resolution
brought me back to running,
and my desire to once again
live that outdoors lifestyle
and freedom. Running in.
2004 wasn't about a marathon


goal; 'it was about freeing
myself and jogging just to jog.
Felt pretty good, and in the
process, I've dropped nearly
40 pounds while still eating
three or more frozen pizzas a
week.
I know smoking is bad, but
I have learned one key lesson
- cigarettes are not an
excuse for not exercising. If
anything, exercise is most
important for those daily
smokers unwilling to give up
the habit.
Who knows. After a while
of clearing out your lungs and
feeling good, maybe you'll
reach that point where I'm at.
However, it's still "New
Year's Eve as I write this and
I've got a half pack left.
Smoke-free living doesn't
start until midnight.
Time to head out for some
fresh air.

Planning is already under way for 2005


Kim and Barbara Doerner were dancers on the first-place,
winning boat in the 35-foot category, Freedom.


STAFF REPORT

Participants in the 2004
holiday boat parade came
together at the Venice Yacht
Club to celebrate and share
stories of how they came up
with their designs.
Wayne Nottingham starts
thinking about the parade in
January. He tries to choose a
popular theme. Last year his
boat was the famous Nemo
and this year he chose Sponge
Bob.
Wayne loves working on
the project and said he and
his wife, Jeana, do most of the
work Wayne said he already
had an idea for next year's
design but is keeping it a
secret.
Boat parade chair Taylor
MacPherson kept the group
on task, handing out trophies
and cash prizes with great


efficiency. Everyone agreed
this year's entries were spec-
tacular. Boat Parade Director
Ken Briggs received well-
deserved recognition for
making sure the event ran
smoothly.
Boat parade winners for
the 2004 Venice Boat Parade
were Capts. Bill Hettler, Don
Negel, David Sundell, Robert
High, Wayne Notingham,
Cameron Ziai, Brian Watkin-
son, Jim Matalone, Peter
Doerer, Mark Mathinsen and
'Jim Tanter.
Many captains have al-
ready paid their entry fees for
this year.
Proceeds from the parade
benefit the Venice Youth
Sailing Squadron for scholar-
ships for boys and girls who
might not be able to partici-
pate in the program without
them.

Its a wrap


STORY BY KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR

Sn the Our Town section of the I nice
Gondolier Sun, we sometimes cover the
softer side of the news but not always.


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
By dawn's early light on Aug. 14, the last tiny hatchling loggerhead sea turtle from a nest at
Caspersen Beach made its way into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If it isa female that sur-
vives to adulthood some 15 years from now, it is likely to return to the same beach to lay eggs
for the next generation.


Stories in the 104 issues
printed this past year run the
gamut from a sudden infesta-
don of pigs in paradise to seri-
ous environmental issues
such as the plight of sea tur-
ties and major surgery.
Pigs win by a snout
From a hard news angle,
sea rartles should be the
number-one story but a
bunch of non-native animals
managed to hog more Our
Town pages, front and back,
to garner the number one
spot.
Taking inspiration from
Pike Place Market in Seattle,
which has two large bronze
piggy banks, the Venice Art
Center created its Pigs in
Paradise fund raising project.
In a town with a popula-
tion of just 19,000,. 40 pigs
were sponsored at a cost of
$2,400 each. They were
placed all over town, along
Venice, Miami and Tampa
avenues and on Nokomis and
Nassau streets and along
Tamiami Trail on the island.
They are at the library, inside
the Goldrush Restaurant, on
the lawn in front of Luna
Ristorant, on Indian Avenue
near the high school, at the
VAC, on Palermo Place, inside
the three Venice Publix stores,
at the Electrobake shop on
the US 41 Bypass and at
Sharky's at the Pier. There
was one at the Crow's Nest
but, it, Capt. Will Be Cooked,
was named the official Ven-
ice Pig Ambassador and
taken to the Sarasota Visitor's
SCenter by motorcade in
December.
Electrobake donated all-
weather sealing for each pig


and 'White Cement donated
bases and the installation for
each of the pigs, which were
delivered to their various sites
by a crane-equipped truck.
Jan. 20, the VAC will hold a
pig roast and April 30, the


sponsored pigs will be auc-
tioned off, earning still more
money for the VAC. A similar
auction of 72 decorative alli-
gators was held in Naples
two years ago, garnering
$800,000. Beginning bids are

in the $1,000-$5,000 range
and expected to go much
higher.
Meanwhile, the pigs have
become more popular than
the beach with both tourists
and residents. Someone is
nearly always posing next to
a pig, occasionally taking a
piggy-back ride. A tourist
who lost her expensive cam-
era recently was more con-
cerned with the camera's con-
tents pictures of all the
pigs.

painted porkers, call,,theVAC

are news in Gulf Coast cities
and always in OurTown, plac-
ing in the top five once again.
Less than one of every
1,000-2,500 hatchlings will
reach sexual maturity, age
25-45. Most will die crawling
toward the gulf right after
hatching, but there are other
problems as well. This year,
enforcing the lights out poli-
cies in Venice proved to be a
bigger challenge than in years
past and there were far more
turtle disorientation.
There also was a mysteri-
ous ailment that attacked
some young adult turtles and
lower nesting numbers than
in most recent years.
"It is the fifth year of a
downward trend all through
the loggerhead range," Foote
said. "That includes North
and South America, Central
America and the Caribbean.
"There are two theories:
One is that cold currents
resulting from El Nino have
decreased the food supply so
that turtles are not migrating.
The other has to do with gill
netting and long-line fish-
eries. Marine fishery services
are collecting figures and the
numbers are way up, so that
is having an influence."
Now is the time to prepare
for the next season, Foote
said.
It is time to educate the
public as well as the code
enforcement officers, and it
is time to change out offend-
ing lights and make other
changes that will limit the
amount of light that spreads
onto beach during the night.
The turtles will return May 1.
Peggi Conlin-Paquette
also had a losing year
Medical stories often are
featured in Our Town. This
year's biggest OT medical
story was written by its sub-
ject, Gondolier Sun writer
and budding comic Peggi
Conlin-Paquette who had
gastric bypass surgery at the
end of Jul.
Getting started was no
small task. First there was a

ton of paperwork to compile.
Insurance required six
months of documented
weight loss attempts super-
\ised by a physician. Then
came a visit to a psychologist.
In order to be successful after
the surgery, they need to
know that you understand
everything involved with the
surgery and that your mind is
in the right place.
Gastric bypass is not a
magical cure. It is a tool. It is a
way of beginning the weight
loss successfully and of man-
aging behavioral changes in
order for you have lifelong
success.
Conlin-Paquette wrote
about insurance company
setbacks, myriad tests, the
surgery and recovery. From a
starting weight of nearly 400
pounds, she had lost 90
pounds by last week and has
never felt better in her life, she


wrote.
Three milestones
were reached
The Bishop and the bari-
tones celebrated anniver-
saries during the past year.
During the year, area
Catholics celebrated the 20th
anniversary of the consecra-
tion of Epiphany Cathedral as
the home church of the new
Catholic Diocese of South-
west Florida in 1984.
Also celebrated in 2004
was the 45th anniversary of
Bishop John J. Nevins' ordina-
tion as a priest and the 25th
anniversary of his ordination
as a bishop.
The baritones had to share
their celebrations with several
other singers as the Venice
arm of the Society for the

Q. I have a constant ringing
sound in nm left ear which is
most noticeable at night. It
has begun to interfere with
my ability to fall asleep. My
doctor told me to listen to
the radio or TV to fall asleep
but this has been difficult to
do. He called the ringing in
my ear "tinnitus". Is there
anything else I can try which
will quiet the ringing sound I
hear?

a more serious illness and
should be thoroughly
evaluated. 37 million adults
suffer from tinnitus and for 7.5
nullion the problem is so
severe that i interferes with
then daily living. Tinnitus can
often occur alone but may be
accompanied by decreased
hearing ability, feelings of
pressure in the ear.
unsteadiness and dizziness. The
most common cause of unnirus
is a high frequency hearing loss
associated \uIh advancing age.
This cause of tinnitus can be
successful treated with
tinnitus makers or high
frequency amplifiers. Tinnirus
originating in the middle ear
can be caused by infection,
allergy or an ear drum
perforation. Because tinnitus is
often a. symptom of many
serious medical conditions, it
should not be ignored. It is
important to begin with a

locate the source of the tinnitus

options. Only an Audiologist is

A story of


2005 calendars


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


Two weeks ago, a member
of the South Venice Civic
Association walked into the
office with a pile of 2005 cal-
endars, most of which she
received in the mail unsolic-
ited. "Give them away," she
said, "I can only use one."
Sure enough, as people
browsed around they saw the
free calendars and picked
them up. I looked them over
and picked out two I thought
would be good for my office
and dressing room at home.
To help celebrate the 50th
anniversary of the SVCA, we
are also giving away calendars
to stick on refrigerators.
For Christmas, my family
gave me three calendars, one
with photos each month of

the children (that I must hang
up), and two of Salvador Dali
paintings I am an avid Dali
fan. Out went the calendars
from the office. At Com-
munity National Bank, I re-
ceived a lovely Norman
Rockwell calendar and will
be sending it to my sister in
Minnesota.
I really like the tiny calen-
dar from Pope Insurance that
I pasted in front of my screen
to assure me that I have the
dates right when I do com-
puter work. Behind me, next
to the telephone, is the neces-
sary appointment calendar,
too. There is no way I can
mess up the days in 2005.
Wrong! I hung both Dali
calendars in my dressing
room so I can look at the
beautiful paintings and check
the date first thing in the
morning. But those calen-
dars start the week with
Monday and end the week
on Sunday. Sure enough,
when I went into the office
last week, I changed the date
of an important meeting to
Monday, Jan. 4, rather than
the real Monday date of Jan.
3 and got the dickens for it.
Dali got me on that one.
Today is Saturday, Jan. 1,
2005 for sure. A very Happy
New Year to all Venetians and
especially to the folks in our
subdivision. I hope you liked
our commemorative newslet-
ter. Come by and pick up a
calendar, too.

Bealls suing over Punta Gorda Mall


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


Bealls Outlet isn't letting
Hurricane Charley be the ex-
cuse to end its lease at the
now demolished Punta Gorda
Mall.
Bealls Outlet Stores Inc.
has filed suit against City
Marketplace LLC, the devel-
opment group that owns the
mall. The suit claims that
City Marketplace breached
its lease agreement with the
discount department store.
Bealls is suing for damages,
including "lost profits and lost
business opportunities."
"(City Marketplace) has
breached the lease by, among
other things, failing to restore
the premises to its condition
prior to certain weather
events," Beall's attorney
Charles E Johnson III wrote
in his suit filed with the
Charlotte County Circuit
Court. "More specifically, the
premises were damaged by
the hurricane, ultimatelyre-
sulting in the demolition of
the building where the
premises was located."
Charley and the other hur-
ricanes caused enough dam-
age to. close 20 Bealls stores,
said Charlie Boscarino, vice
president of the company's
real estate division. All of
those damaged stores are
expected to be open soon
after the new year except
the Punta Gorda store. Bealls
remains committed to re-
opening that store.
"It's not something we
take lightly," he said of the
lawsuit. In the case of the
Punta Gorda Mall, he said,
his company saw no effort
by City Marketplace to re-

build and allow Bealls to re-
open its store.
City Marketplace represen-
tatives could not be reached
for comment Tuesday.
Changes in plans
Prior to Hurricane Charley
hitting Punta Gorda in Aug-
ust, the City Marketplace de-
velopers demolished the
main building on the north-
ern portion of the mall with
the idea of rebuilding a new
mixed-use development of
upscale retail stores, offices
and condominiums. What
remained were stores in the
southern portion of the mall,
which included Bealls, and
several occupied, out-parcel
buildings on the northern
portion of the mall property.
In various public state-
ments before the hurricane,
the developers' representa-
tives stated the plan was to
redevelop the southern por-
tion of the mall at some,
undesignated future date.
Also, according to a devel-
oper's agreement with the
city, the demolished north-
ern portion of the mall did
allow City Marketplace to
collect $1.5 million from the
city. The city received rights
of way that will allow it to
extend West Retta Esplanade
from Taylor Street, through
the mall to U.S. 41 North.
The development agree-


ment with the city also called
for the city to pay City
Marketplace an additional
$500,000 for right of way
along the 100 block of West
Marion Avenue. The money
wouldn't be released until the
Marion Avenue right of way
was available. City Manager
Willard Beck said Monday he
expects the city to pay out the
$500,000 within the next two
weeks.
Hurricane Charley helped,
to speed up the process.
Like many of the other
commercial and residential
structures in downtown
Punta Gorda, the mall struc-
tures sustained severe dam-
age, and the developers de-
cided to demolish all of the
structures.
Lease language
As an exhibit with the suit,
Johnson included a copy of
Bealls' lease with the mall,
first signed in 1996. The lease
calls for an initial period of 10
years, but allows the tenant
to extend four times in five-
year increments.
The contract includes a
section, entitled "Repairs and
Improvements," delineating
the responsibilities of Bealls
and the landlord. But that
section also includes lan-
guage addressing what
should happen in the wake
of a "fire, casualty or disaster."


In part, the lease calls for
the mall owners to restore the
property "substantially" and
"promptly" to its precondi-
tions.
However, the lease also
states:
"In the event of total
destruction of the premises
and the landlord fails to com-
pletely restore and rebuild
same within 18 months after
(the disaster), the tenant may,
at its option, elect to termi-
nate and cancel this lease..."
But rather than terminat-
ing its lease, which was due
to expire in April 2005,
Boscarino said Bealls Outlet
notified City Marketplace
that it would be exercising
its option to extend the lease
to 2010.

nent spot behind the recently
restored Venice Train Depot,
the statue will be approxi-
..mately 7 feet in height and
mounted on a 3-foot granite
base and illuminated at night.
Approval of the maquene
(a miniature statue) and the
full-sized clay model by the
Statue committee, the board
of the Historical Society of
Venice and the Board of
County Commissioners freed
up the final grant money dur-
ing the year. Nearing comple-
tion, the statue is expected to


be installed in late spring.
Dairy Queen
returns to Venice
Bob Briner ran the old
Dairy Queen store on the
island ofVenice for 46 years.
Most people who were in
Venice during the Briner-DQ
years have their stories to tell
about regular trips to the DQ
and about their favorite treat
there. It seemed as though
the DQ was always open and
that Briner was always there,
topping off the vanilla or
chocolate flavor frozen treat
with that little curl on the top.
Only then would he dip the
cones in chocolate glaze if
requested or top off a sundae
order with hot fudge or other
topping before adding the
whipped cream and a cherry
In 2004, Venice once again
had a DQ and to make it offi-
cial, Briner was there for the
opening. Former customer
Maureen Skidmore showed
up wearing a whistle given
out years ago by Briner at the
oldDQ.
That first day, the perfect
curl on the top again was put
there by Briner.
Two feel-good tales

If there is one characteris-
tic that pervades Venice it is
goodness.
When Hurricane Charley
blazed its path, of destruction
across Florida on Aug. 13, the'
Salvation Army was there to
help.
"One day in Arcadia we
served 300 meals," Venice
Salvation Army Capt. John
Fuller said. "For two days in
Port Charlotte we served 600
meals."
Army volunteers, led by
Fuller, did it all from the can-
teen and trailer that is kept
ready at all times at the Venice
headquarters. It can be mobi-
lized within an hour, whenev-
er needed. In the aftermath of


the Sept. 11 terrorist strikes,
Salvation Army volunteers
provided as many as 15,000
meals per day to disaster
workers and continued to do
so for more than a year, until
the clean-up was finally com-
pleted. Because the Army
does that, firemen and other
rescue workers can concen-
trate on their jobs.
In addition to providing
thousands of meals through-
out Southwest Florida in the
aftermath of the hurricanes,
the Salvation Army also pro-
vided truckloads of clothing
and supplies to victims.
During the recent holi-
days, the Salvation Army pro-
vided food vouchers and gifts
to several hundred area fami-
lies and at Thanksgiving, the
army fed more than 400
people who might have been
alone that day.
To make a donation, send
a check to: The Salvation
Army of Venice, EO. Box 69,
Venice, FL 34284-0069. For
more information about the
Venice corps, or if you need
help, call 484-6227. Its head-
quarters building is at 1051
Albee Farm Road. The corps
operates a thrift store at 1168
U.S. 41 Bypass South in Ven-
ice. Proceeds are used by the
army in its relief efforts and
to assist those in need.
Man finds
salvation in Mexico
Mike and Doris Morin took
a side trip from their cruise
ship when it docked in
Acapulco a year ago that
changed their lives.
Armed with some 300 toys
from a toy business they once
operated, the Morins went
searching for an orphanage,.
planning to donate the toys as
a goodwill gesture. They
found 71 children who need-
ed more than those toys, and
a Salvation Army-run orph-
anage that needed some
work.


Back in the United States,
Morin got in touch with the
Salvation Army, tracked down
the person in charge of the
Mexican orphanages and
asked if he could return to
the orphanage for a few
weeks as a volunteer.
"I have always donated to
the Salvation Army," he said.
"I think it is the greatest char-
ity going."
They went at Christmas
and stayed until Jan. 13, con-
tributing time and money.
Even though Morin, 73, suf-
fered a stroke-like episode on
his way back to Venice, he has
returned to the orphanage,
driving a truck filled with
needed supplies, and, with
the help of co-workers at R.C.
Neilsen Media Research, he
has shipped seven 40-pound
boxes to the orphanage.
"I had the best three weeks
of my life there," he said.
"They need so much. If any-
one, wants to help, they can
call me at 423-8363."
Still more
During the year, there also
were Our Town stories about
home tours sponsored by
groups such as the Plantation
Community Foundation, the
Venice Area Garden Club and
Grace United Methodist
Church.
Senior Writer Don Moore
contributed stories about
area veterans; correspondent
Jan Findley provided stories
about area clubs and arts
organizations and Gondolier
Sun Managing Editor Bob
Mudge wrote about five local
high school students hoping
to make it big on the music
scene as SS Legend.
If it is important to some-
one orto some group or orga-
nization in the community, it
is important to Our Town.

Santa Claus is a Finn


Part II of a three-part series


PART I of Santa Claus is a Finn
appeared last Saturday in the
Venice Gondolier Sun travel pages.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Fortified with our last huge
breakfast at the Sokos Hotel
Hamburger Bors in Turku,
our little group of five writers
and Maria Conte of the Fin-
nish Tourist Board boarded
an express train to Helsinki
and three days of pure luxury
living.
The weather was even a
little sunnier as we left the
oldest town in Finland be-
hind ,and headed for the
Finns' most modem town.
We arrived right on time at
10:57 a.m., going straight to
the only five-star hotel in
town, the Hotel Kamp, which
had only recently been
restored as a hotel after sever-
al years as a bank.
Located just off the Es-
planade, the Kamp is handy
to everything. From there we


could easily walk to all the
best shops, most of which are
located on the Esplanade, to
the waterfront market, and
even to the Finnish Design
Center, just a few blocks away.
All the modem accouter-
ments have been recently
added to the hotel which was
first opened in 1887, the
dream of restaurateur Carl
Kamp. Its 19th century archi-
tecture is more splendid than.
ever since the restoration of
the hotel from its days as a
bank following World War II.
Actually, another restoration
effort was mounted in 1965 to
save the decaying old build-
ing. The bank had intended to
restore the hotel even then
but when it could not find a
leasing partner, it converted
the building to offices. The
Kansallis Banking Group's
board of governors worked
there until 1995. A year later
plans were launched by Star-
wood Hotels & Resorts World-
wide Inc. to restore the Kamp
to its former glory while

most of the city.


updating amenities to the
standards of the finest hotels
in the world. They didn't miss
a thing. Every room, public or
private, is deluxe.
As for our accommoda-
tions, the Kamp is pure ele-
gance. From the crisply
pressed, high-thread-count,
monogrammed linens on the
king-sized bed to the elegant
marble bathroom, our rooms
were as well appointed as
they could be. We had thick
terry bathrobes and match-
ing slippers in the armoire,
which also was fitted out with
padded silk hangers for our
clothing, a pants press and a
combination safe for our
valuables. The bedspreads
and matching draperies were
made of heavy hand-woven
fabrics, finished with hand-
made trims. A large tassel fin-
ished the window dressing.
There was a chair and otto-
man as well as a desk and two
other chairs plus a second
armoire-like cabinet housing
the television.
The television was on, with
a "WVelcome to the Hotel
Kamp Kim Cool" message on

sale at the Women}s
Christmas Market in Helsinki.


its screen and, as at the Turku
hotel, there was a card-holder
on the wall to activate, the
room's electric lights.
The bathroom had a sepa-
rate tub and intriguing round
shower, which had curved
glass doors surrounding the
shower space. On the edge of
the tub was a large red rubber
ducky.
The hotel's marketing
manager told us that the
ducks are a Kamp signature,
saying that even the most
stressed-out business travel-
ers relax, once they see the
duck. That night when I
learned that Donald Duck
was the most popular cartoon
character in Finland, the
importance of the ducks be-
came especially clear. VWe
had red ducks because of the
Christmas holiday. Normally,
the ducks are green, she said.
If we wanted to take one
home, the cost was 8 euros. '
Also for sale were the
linens and arctic down pil-
lows the most comfortable
pillows I have experienced in
any hotel in the world, and I
have been to plenty of so-
called five-star hotels. Had I
not liked the pillows in the
room, I could have called
housekeeping to request pil-
lows that were harder or soft-
er or even a different size.
Like Goldilocks, I thought my
room's pillows were "just
right." I am seriously thinking
of ordering two of those pil-
lows from the hotel's Web site,


On Dec. 6, Independence Day in Finland, hundreds of visitors
paid respects to one of Finland's heroes and a former presi-
dent, Marshall Mannerheim. His monument was placed at the
Hietaniemi cemetery in 1951.

For those who want to see
the world, it is hard to imag-
ine a more elegant way than
aboard the Radisson Seven
Seas :\Voyager's 108-night
world cruise or the 93-night
Grand Circle South Pacific
voyage aboard the Mariner
or the 56-night roundtrip
New York top of the world
cruise aboard the Navigator.
Radisson has dubbed
2005 the year of the long
cruise, it seems, judging by
its latest offerings.
The ultimate is the 108-
night full global navigation,
which will depart from Los
Angeles Jan. 5 to fully cir-
cumnavigate the world. The
seven-segment world cruise
will reach 44 ports in 27 coun-
tries and feature Le Cordon
Bleu classes, Spotlight Cruise
themed programming, guest
lectures and 12 complimen-
tary shore events, including a
Truk Island scuba dive with
legendary oceanographer.

THE KEY: Excellent T Good yY i Fair r I Poor y






Streisand and Hoffman give uncensored,


bawdy, performances in 'Meet the Fockers'


BY CHRIS HEWITI
GUESTWRITER

Barbra Streisand and
Dustin Hoffman, paired at
last in the hilarious "Meet
the Fockers," make the most
of their screen time.
As the last scene of "Meet
the Fockers" fades, support-
ing actors Barbra Streisand
and Dustin Hoffman are at
the center of the screen.
This is not an accident.
Streisand and Hoffman's
bawdy, uncensored perfor-
mances as Roz and Bernie
Focker, parents of Greg
Focker (Ben Stiller), are the
highlight of this formulaic
but consistently funny film.
A sequel to "Meet the
Parents," in which screw-up
Greg met his Protestantly
perfect future in-laws

Blade: Trinity


As an apocalyptic event lakes
place that could shift the control of


(Robert De Niro, Blythe
Danner), "Fockers" plays
out like an episode of a
good sitcom when it's really
clicking.
We know these charac-
ters they're affectionate
stereotypes, so we know
them even if we didn't see
"Parents" and it's fun to
see these pros take them in
directions that confirm and

BENNETT GROSS
RELIGION COLUMNIST

In one of the most poig-
nant moments of the musical
"1776" recently performed at
the Venice Little Theatre, John
Adams, the outspoken dele-
gate from Massachusetts to
the Continental Congress,
bewails the lack of support
in his arduous quest for
Independence.
At the moment of his
greatest. despair after hopes
of a vote for independence
seem to be crumbling away,
Adams stands alone in a dark-
ened and deserted chamber
and sorrowfully cries out in
song: "Is anyone there ...?.
Does anyone care ...? Does
anyone see ... What I see ...?
Standing in the darkened
backstage every evening wait-
ing to go on stage as an ailing
delegate from Delaware sum-
moned from his deathbed to
cast a vote to break his state's
deadlock, I became part, of
the process. It was as if I were

ludonary times of our coun-
try.
And so when I stepped on
stage to the well wishes of my
fellow delegates, I truly felt
that my voice, my vote would
help realize John Adams'
dream to: "See Americans ...
All Americans ... Free ... oor
Evermore!"
We enter a New Year with a
country almost as politically,
divided now as it was then.
Only it is not the issue of in-
dependence that divides us
but that of faith-based groups
that practice exclusion and
who can see no further than
their own biased beliefs.,.
That the Constitution of
our great country is as viable
and as vibrant today as it was
more than two centuries ago
is a tribute to the brilliance
and collective wisdom of our
Founding Fathers. Yet there
are movements afoot to
amend it, to take away free-
doms already granted; above
all to narrow the division of
church and state. And make
America a theocracy.
The words of the Bill of
Rights resound as never be-
fore: "Congress shall make
no law respecting an estab-
lishment of religion, or pro-
hibit the free exercise there-
of," and have been the source
of security to minority reli-
gions. This expression of tol-
erance stands like the torch

An interfaith worship service celebrating the holidays of Hanukkah, Christmas and Solstice was held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Venice. Along with traditional hymns and a
Hanukkah candle lighting, talks giving the history and content of the celebrations were given by Dr. Barbara G. Walker, UUCOV member; Dr. Joel Kreiss, president of the Jewish Community
Center of Venice; Deacon Robert Dziedziak, Ephiphany Cathedral and the Rev. Don Wilson, Minister of United Church.

on the Statue Of Liberty a
shining symbol of respect and
tolerance for every religion.
In the past several months
the Venice Interfaith Com-
munity Association has given
vibrant meaning to how the
various faiths can work to-
gether, speak together and,
most importantly, celebrate
holidays together.
Notably the interfaith
Thanksgiving Service at


Epiphany Cathedral and in
December the "Winter Cele-
brations" at the Unitarian
Universalist Congregation of
Venice, where three reli-
gious traditions came
together in celebration of
each other's holidays and
history.
The thoughts df the Rev.
Susanne Nazian expressed
in the program struck a truly
ecumenical chord: "Tonight

we bring you a taste of the
December holidays cele-
brated by three religious tra-
ditions. You will be exposed
to the history and content of
the celebrations enjoyed by
those who keep the Solstice,
Hanukkah and Christmas.
We hope you each will leave
feeling you have wor-
shipped."
Those of us who shared in
the hymns "Deck the Halls,"


"Light One Candle" and "0
Holy Night" and by the
responses to the Winter
Holidays by representatives
of the various faiths walked
away with a warm glow on a
cool December evening.
I took away another image
that night the candles of
Hanukkah being kindled by
lews and non-lews alike.

noon we had to be back in
the lobby for a city sightsee-
ing tour, with stops at the
two most famous churches, a
stop at Senate Square, the
cable factory, Olympic Stad-
ium and the Sibelius Monu-
ment plus a stop at the
Hietaniemi Cemetery that
seems to be Finland's answer
to Arlington in Washington,
D.C.
Our first stop was the
famous rock church Temp-
pelieauklokirkko. Blasted out-
of granite bedrock on its site,
the church is topped by what
appears to be woven and
coiled copper wire. Addition-
al copper was used for the
organ pipes and other metal
trimmings within the build-
ing. A few minutes after our
arrival, a huge tour group left
the church. One lone piano
tuner plunking away provid-
ed the only sound for a few
minutes until the next big
group arrived.


composer's "Taipola" sym-
phony.
The rest of the afternoon
we spent at the Women's
Christmas FairF at Wanha
Satama Ithe old harbor). The
building was filled with room
after room of craft booths.
Vendors were selling magnifi-
cent hand-made items that
ranged from tiny holiday
ornaments to stunning wool
coats in colorful Finnish
designs and patterns. There
were lots of hand-knit
sweaters and caps as well as
stunning works of glass and
one room filled with hand-
made character dolls, each
one dressed appropriately for
a trade such as doctor, den-
tist, woodcarver or teacher.
Dividing to conquer, we
each took off in our own
direction to shop the market
in the limited time we had
there. By 6 p.m. we had to be
back at the hotel to dress for
our Independence Day din-

Russian restaurant that
remindedme a little of the old
Russian Tea Room in New
York, although it did not have
nearly so many samovars on.
displays
What Saslik did have was
wonderful food and enter-
tainment. It seemed strange
to be at a Russian restaurant
on the 87th anniversary of
Einland's independence from
Russia but the restaurant was
charming and the food
superb. No sooner was our lit-
lde group seated than we were
presented with semi-frozen
drinks of lemon-flavored
vodka and lime juice with a
slice of dill pickle.
To make sure we experi-
enced the best, our meal had
been selected for us. Kudos to"
the chef.
Our entree was presented
on two large wooden boards,
each one serving three of us.
The board contained a pile of
scalloped potatoes topped
with beef stroganoff. At one
end were green beans and
sauerkraut. At the other end,
tiny pearl onions and red cab-
bage. No way could three
people consume all the food
on one of those planks. It was
all delicious and drew oohss"
and "ahhls" from a neighbor-
ing table that included some
other Americans.
When dessert came. the
oohss" and "ahhs" came from
us. Dessert consisted of two
more planks this time cov-
ered with the largest baked
Alaskas I have ever seen.
Berry juice was drizzled atop
a mound of meringue that
covered at least a half-gallon
of ice cream, mixed berries
and possibly cake. Again, we
could not possibly eat it all,
although we made a valiant
effort.


This memorial wall in the Hietaniemi Cemetery seemed somehow similar to the Vietnam Wall in
Washington, D.C.


Joining us at dinner was
Marjata Haapio, a Helsinki
resident member of the
Finnish Tourist Board. When
she casually mentioned a cer-
tain Donald Duck exhibit,
which 1 visited the following
morning, I knew that I had
been destined to go to
Finland in 2004. A story about
that exhibit appeared in the
Gondolier Sun Our Town
travel pages on Dec. 18.
There were two nights to
come in Helsinki, more fabu-
lous meals, sightseeing and
an extraordinary evening at
the Opera House.

PART III of Santa Claus is a Finn
will appear in the Venice Gondolier
Sun travel pages next week.

etables in a presentation planned to serve three diners.


Back on the bus, we made
brief stops at Senate Square
and at the Lutheran Church.
That church was closed but
some of us hopped off the bus
long enough to snap a couple
of photos.
A misty rain was thicken-
ing the air as we walked into
the cemetery, six more people
in a throng of people, despite
the inclement weather. It was
Finland's Independence Day.
Hundreds of people were
walking into the cemetery
and placing lighted candles in
glass bottles at the graves of
their loved ones and also at
the graves of Finnish war
heroes such as Marshall Man-
nerheim who was elected the
country's president in 1944.
As we left the cemetery I
noticed a long low wall filled
with names. It reminded me
of the Vietnam Wall in
Washington, D.C. but had
been erected years earlier as a
monument to Finns who died
in World War Il.
Our next stop was the
Sibelius Monument. From a
distance it appears to be one
more tree in its park-like set-
ting. Up close and personal, it
is a stunning piece of metal
sculpture.
From 3-4 p.m. we were at
Finlandia Hall for an Inde-
pendence Day concert con-
ducted by Leif Segerstam, a
portly and much-beloved
conductor with a wild mane
of white hair and a beard to
match. The program included
Sibelius' "Finlandia," which is
so awe-inspiring as well as the
