'Dirty Bridge' could get new paint job


The county never planned on painting the Venice
Avenue Bridge, but now commissioners are look-
ing for extra cash following complaints.


Jim Myers has only been off
of Venice City Council for two
months, and he's already mak-
ing good on a promise to stay
involved in the community.
In fact, hot on the heels of
the South Bridge getting re-
named, Myers has come up
with a new one for Venice
Avenue Bridge "The Dirt
Bridge."
Those comments came at
the final city council meeting
of 2004. Myers is among many


area residents unhappy with
the bridge's rough, unfinished
look despite the county
spending $3 million on it.
"To say it's overall in de-
plorable condition is an un-
derstatement. ... It looks hor-
rible." Myers said at the Dec.
14 meeting. "I'm afraid ihe
center bridge may need to be
renamed the Dirty Bridge."
Some say all the bridge
really needs is a powerwash-
ing and a new paint job.
County commissioners
never budgeted for that, in-
stead making sure there was


nearly $100,000 for pedesti-
an passing zones and another
$500,000 for stairways that
will connect to the Venetian
Waterway Park trail. The rest
of the money went toward
updating the gears and ma-
chinery that raise the bridge
spans.
Country officials hope the
bridge updates will last at
least another 15 years.
Let's talk
Ben Newman. Sarasota
County manager of roads and
bridges, is getting estimates
for painting the bridge in
preparation of the joint meet-
ing between commissioners
and city council Feb. 23.

The Venice Avenue Bridge now has pedestrian passing zones
for wheelchairs and bicycles, but no cutouts so wheelchairs
can get on the bridge. Crosswalks and wheelchair ramp
cutouts are planned, according to the county.

They keep-on-a-conmin' to
Venice no matter how bad the
traffic gets.
Some perennial snowbird
observers say there is less traf-
fic congestion this year than
in previous years. They say
visitors are staying away
because Florida highway en-
gineers are not capable of
adequately addressing traffic
flow.
"There is a small percent-
age (of visitors ) that if they
came in Februar- or March,
they mention the traffic,"
Sarasota Convention and Vis-
itors Bureau Executive Direct-
or Virginia Haley said. "But we
have 90-98 percent saying
they would like to come
back."
Here a gridlock,
there a gridlock ...
Most tourists are from
cities "Up North" that are
gridlocked 365 days a year, so
for them, Venice's gridlock is
nothing to get nuts over.
Additionally, snowbirds by
definition are part-timers.


You can put up with practical-
ly anything for the short term.
Visitors who tell the SCVB
they are not coming back say
it is because they just never
stay in the same place twice,
according to Hale.\
They love it, that's why
There is another reason,
too, that out-of-towners flock
down here in spite of the con-
gestion.
"They love it," Haley said.
'And they like to be on the
beach early in the day, so they
miss the traffic anvay."
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce Business Devel-
opment Director Dave Pierce
said tourism was off a little
because of the aftermath of
the four hurricanes last fall.
Haley agreed. She said the
county is still dealing with
perception problems that this
area was damaged by the hur-
ricanes that wracked the
Suncoast last fall.
Pierce said the number of
visitors picked up around
mid-December.

ment with his neighbors: He
deeded his home to them, but
under an arrangement allow-
ed him to keep living there
and only pay utilities.
Now 94, Jim recently broke
his hip, ending up in the hos-
pital and then rehab. After
eight days in the hospital, the
neighbor changed the locks
on the house, claiming Jim's
life estate had terminated un-
der the "abandonment" clause
of the agreement. During that
time, Jim's dog, Jessie, was
locked inside the house with-
out food or water.
Gulfcoast Legal Services
was contacted for help. GLS
wrote the neighbors, de-
manding the immediate
changing of the locks and
noninterference with Jim's
property rights or they would
be subject to a lawsuit and
attorney's fees.
That's all it took. The locks
were changed back the fol-
lowing day.


"That was an easy case
compared to others," said
Elizabeth Boyle, GLS manag-
ing attorney. "We've had cases
that took over 100 hours in
terms of attorney's time. One
exceptional case took nine
years to settle."
Legal help for all
GLS has been providing
free legal assistance to low-
income residents of Sarasota
County since 1981. Two full-
time attorneys and two vol-
unteer retired attorneys staff
the Sarasota office. In all, 34
GLS employees handle more
than 600 cases per year, not
including thousands of
phone calls providing instant
legal advice.
"We're always looking for
volunteer attorneys to help
with the workload," Boyle
said.

Taking charge -again


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

For Barbara Ford-Coates,
Sarasota County's tax collector
for the past 20 years, Tuesday's
swearing-in ceremony for the
newly elected county consti-
tutional officers was a familiar
ritual.
That familiarity served
Ford-Coates well, as Acting
Chief Circuit Judge Lee Ha-
worth mistakenly said he was
swearing her in as property
appraiser. As she repeated the
oath, Ford-Coates, without a
hitch, said "tax collector" in-
stead, causing the packed
courtroom to erupt in laugh-
ter.
Haworth, acting in place of
Chief Judge Robert Bennett,
who was ill, swore in six of the
county's seven constitutional
officers during a ceremony
Tuesday morning in the re-
stored historic courtroom in
the county's judicial complex
in Sarasota.
Besides Ford-Coates, those
taking the oath of office from
Haworth included Sheriff Bill
Balkwill, Property Appraiser
Jim Todora, Circuit Court
Clerk Karen Rushing, Public
Defender Elliott Metcalfe Jr.
and State Attorney Earl
Moreland.
Missing from Tuesday's cer-
emony was Supervisor of
Elections Kathy. Dent, who
was in Washington, D.C., as
part of a national task force on
election reform. Dent was
sworn in at an earlier date.
"We, are blessed in. this
county by the quality of peo-
ple who have chosen to serve
in public office," said Haworth
at the conclusion of the cere-
mony. "You are truly an august
group."

Sarasota County Sheriff Bill Balkwill poses for a sheriff's pho-
tographer with his wife, Gail, shortly after taking the oath of
office for his second term on Tuesday.


Fixtures
With the exception of Dent
and Balkwill, who are both
beginning their second terms
in office, the rest of the consti-
tutional officers, like Ford-
Coates, have almost become
fixtures in office.
Rushing is next in longev-
ity after Ford-Coates with 17
years in office, followed by
Todora with eight years.
Metcalfe, however, holds
the longest record in office.
He was first elected public de-
fender in 1977, while More-
land was elected state attor-
ney in 1988. As court officers
with the 12th Judicial Circuit,
both Metcalfe and Moreland
represent Manatee and De-
Soto counties, along with
Sarasota.
As she took the oath of
office for the sixth time, Ford-
Coates said her thoughts
turned to her granddaughter,


who is now the same age her
oldest daughter was when
she first went into office.
"I think it's an incredible
statement about the quality
of my staff," Ford-Coates said
of her years in office. She said
that over the next four years,
she planned to introduce
more electronic services for
her constituents.
"We say paying taxes is
painful enough, and our job
is to make it as painless as
possible," she said.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioners Shannon Staub, Jon
Thaxton and Paul Mercier
were not part of Tuesday's
swearing in ceremony be-
cause their new terms in
office began in November.
Instead, the three commis-
sioners were sworn into office
by Judge Andrew Owens prior
to a commission meeting in
mid-November.

A Sarasota County circuit
judge will hear arguments
later this month on the validi-
ty of a term-limits provision in
the Sarasota County Charter.
Last week, attorneys for
the county and the South
Venice couple challenging the
charter provision filed mo-
tions for summary judgment,
each seeking a ruling from
Circuit Judge Rick DeFuria in
their favor.
DeFuria will listen to argu-
ments from the two attorneys
on Jan. 19.
Summary judgment is a
legal technique used by law-
yers when there is no dispute
about the facts in a case. If a
judge agrees, then a ruling
just on the legal issues can be
made without the necessity of
a trial.
Steven Hutton, the attorn-
ey representing Frank and
Dorothy Moore, the couple
challenging the term limits
provision, bases his argument


on two cases decided by the
Florida Supreme Court. Ac-
cording to those two cases,
Hutton argues, term limits
placed on county commis-
sioners are unconstitutional.
Hutton cites a particular
provision of the state consti-
tution listing offices that can
be subject to term limits.
That provision, Hutton wrote,
does not include county
commissioners.
To the contrary
Not so, argues David Pers-
son, the outside attorney hired
by county commissioners to
defend the county.
Persson bases his case on
two constitutional provisions,
one creating all the county
officers and another creating
the office of county commis-
sioner.
In particular, Persson notes
the phrase "Except when oth-
erwise provided by county
charter" in the section dealing
with county commissioners
is not present in the section
establishing other county


offices.
That phrase, Persson arg-
ues, leaves the terms under
which a commissioner occu-
pies his office in a charter
county subject to the discre-
tion of the voters.
Outcome uncertain
In 1998, Sarasota County
voters approved an amend-
ment to the county charter
limiting county commission-
ers to two terms in office.
Dissatisfied with the failure
of the Sarasota County Char-
ter Review Board to place a
repeal of the measure on the
ballot, the Moores filed suit
in Sarasota seeking a judicial
declaration that it is uncon-
stitutional.
Last. summer, at the re-
quest ,of commissioners, the
county attorney's office look-
ed at the most recent case
decided by the Florida Su-.
preme Court and opined that
predicting how the Supreme
Court might rule would be
speculative.
DeFuria could render a
decision in the case on Jan.
19, but will most likely take
additional time to review the.
matter.

Money matters dominate


council workshops


Members wanted more sessions, and
they're getting them. One is Thursday, with four
more planned within the next two months.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


An unused, open work
order used to be a handy tool
to side-step Venice City Coun-
.cil votes. For whatever rea-
son, the work order's original
project would never be
launched, so city staff would
Suse that money for something
Else without ever having to
-ask council's permission.
That is, until City Manager
SMarty Black
took over run-
ning Venice in
February -
even though i
it's "technical-
ly" legal.
"That kind
of practice
runs contrary
to the open- Simmonds
ness of com-
munity," Black said. "I ended,
that rather quickly."
Open work orders are one
of many financial policy
topics on the agenda for an 11
a.m. .workshop at city hall
Thursday. Following a presen-
Station by Black and Acting
SFinance Director Joanne
Lounsbury, citizens will be
Given five minutes each to
speak.
After all of this discussion,
,Black will ask council mem-
Sbers for direction. City staff
will draw up proposed ordi-
nances and policies, based on
council's requests, and bring
them back for a vote.
Workshop philosophy
This is the second in a
string of six workshops sched-
uled within a two-month
Period. The first workshop
'was Dec. 20 to discuss the
prospect of creating a ne\v
architectural overlay district
along U.S. 41 Business.
Council member John
Simmonds has been the most
vocal in asking for workshops.


yr
$ -.


Hardly a regular meeting goes
by in which Simmonds fails
to ask for another workshop
to discuss city issues more in
depth.
Simmonds complains that
Sunshine Laws prevent coun-
cil members from ever talking
about city business, except for
regular meetings when it's
already time to vote. He be-
lieves council needs more
time to talk.
"I don't understand why
there's so much resistance to
(workshops)," Simmonds said
at the most recent council
meeting.
Simmonds has gotten his
wish. Here are the upcoming
workshop dates:
Financial policies -- 11
a.m. Jan. 6, city hall.
Airport finances and de-
velopment 1 p.m. Jan. 12,
city hall.
Harbor Management Plan
- 2 p.m. Feb. 7, city hall.
County-city joint work-
shop 1:30 p.m. Feb. 23,
South County Administration
Building.
Town Hall meeting 6:30
p.m. Feb. 28, city hall.
The architectural overlay
district will come before
council at a regular meeting
in January. Action could be
taken then, or members could
request another workshop on
proposed design standards
along U.S. 41 Business.
Money policies
Thursday's meeting will
deal with everything from
millage rate reductions to
funding sources to future
expenses. Black said it is rare
for a workshop to discuss
financial policies in such de-
fail, and there are no planned
policy changes.
The discussion and-council
opinions, however, could lead
to just that, Black said. One
idea that has been kicked
around is eliminating the

One of Mayor Dean Cala-
maras' re-election promises
was to prevent that policy
from being reversed.
Thursday's presentation
will be on the city's unreserv-
ed fund policy, contingency
accounts, debt management
policies, operating budget pri-
orities and many other issues.
Airport's future
The next workshop will
deal with Venice Municipal
Airport and its future. Policies
surrounding the undeveloped
125 acres, rather than the
potential buildings them-
selves, will drive this conversa-
tion.
Airport Manager Robert
Hernandez advises city coun-
cil to not develop the entire
site. That's in stark contrast to
talk earlier in 2004.
In his Dec. 16 memo, Her-
nandez suggests the site be
developed slowly over time to
meet the airport's financial
needs by generating lease
revenue much like Holi-
day Condominiums, Venice
Mobile Home Park and avia-
tion businesses on airport
property already do.
How much and what type
of development, however, will
be decided based on council's
desire to maintain airport
operations or expand them,
he writes.
Upcoming workshops
Here's a brief preview on
what to expect in the upcom-
ing city council workshops:
Harbor Management Plan
Staff is seeking policy direc-
tion from council so the need-
ed ordinances can be drafted
to regulate use of Venice's har-
bor area. There is no plan in

Illegal sewage



dumped at airport?


The city manager launches an investigation after
an employee tells a local Web publication the
practice has been going on for at least five years.


BYJJ. ANDREWS

Not many bosses expect to
be told one thing, and then
see an employee's e-mail show
up online saying the complete
opposite.
City Manager Marty Black
believes that is what hap-
pened to him, after reading an

Also at www.veniceflorida.
com, Patten directly attributes
this to the former utilities

and blames Mayor Dean Cala-

one thing one

something

said Public
Information Black
Officer Pam
Johnson, who announced the
city manager's investigation
Tuesday.
"But mostly, (Black) wants
to know the truth of what hap-
pened, and indeed, if there's
anything.at the airport that
needs cleaned up." /
Black was in union nego-
tiation meetings most of
Tuesday and was unavailable
for comment.
Officially, no dumping
The point of the investiga-
tion will be to determine if
the city manager was given
false information, and second,
if any illegal dumping has
gone on at the airport,
Johnson said.
The city manager is most
upsetthat Newburn told him
that there never has been il-
legal dumping at the airport
while, a couple of days later,
Patten directly quotes an e-
mail from Newburn that says:
"I can assure you that I was


given a directive to haul mate-
rial that had been dumped in
a drying bed at the island
plant from main breaks to the
(Venice Municipal) airport....
I was against what we were
doing from the start, but I was
told to do it," Newburn wrote
in his e-mail to Patten.
As of Tuesday, the city's offi-
cial stance is no dumping of
sewage has occurred on air-
port property, pending the
outcome of the city manager's
latest investigation.
EPA:'No comment'
The criminal branch of the
Environmental Protection
Agency continues its two-
year-long investigation into
the wastewater division, and
all of Patten's information has
been passed along to them.
"We are aware of these
allegations, but beyond that,
I cannot comment on the
investigation," said FEPA in-
vestigator Dan Green, who
also could not say when the
EPA's investigation will be
concluded.
Patten has long dogged
Venice's utilities department
on allegations of mismanage-
ment and pollution.
"I've been trying: to, prove
or disprove there had been
sewage deliberately dumped
at that airport for years,"
Patten said in a phone inter-
view. "It's just taken a very
long time to get people to
talk."
A message was left with
Calamaras seeking comment.

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.

Pre-K plans for Sarasota County in motion


Voters approved Amendment 8 calling for univer-
sal education for 4-year-olds in 2002. School dis-
tricts statewide are starting to prepare for the
influx of additional students.


BYANGELINE TAYLOR
STAFF WRITER

A two-year-old amend-
ment passed by Floridians will
become a reality this year
affecting 1,300 Sarasota Coun-
ty students.
Amendment 8, known as
the Universal Prekindergarten
amendment, was overwhelm-
ingly approved by Florida vot-
ers in 2002. At the same time,
the more controversial class-
size amendment, Amend-
ment 9, also passed.
This week, Gov. Jeb. Bush
signed pre-K legislation into
law. As a result, 67 school dis-
tricts across the state will have

school hours are necessary." the accountability system for


providers.
Although Benson heads
Sarasota County's committee,
her time is short lived. Due to
the new legislation, the gover-
nor will be appointing new
leaders for each of the coali-
tions and the committee's
name will change.
In April, SRCs will be re-
named Early Learning Coali-
tions. One school representa-
tive, likely the schools super-
intendent, will be on the pan-

Each ELC must cater to
2,000 students, Benson said.
Sarasota County, according
to last year's figures, will have
1,300 eligible 4-year-olds.
Falling below the state-
mandated minimum means
that the county would have to
merge with another county to
meet the quota.
Yet, Charlotte and DeSoto
School districts have already


paired up. Manatee County
meets the numerical mandate
without a partner. As a result,
Sarasota County will request
a waiver for the number of
students.
Why educate 4-year-olds?
Amendment 8 was sold to
voters because of the account-
ability demands placed on
schools and students. Stu-
dents from third through 12th
grades are required to take
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test. Opening
school doors to 4-year-olds
may provide a needed jump
on learning, White said.
"Learning to read is funda-
mental," White said. "Those
early years are critical."
Early predictors of learn-
ing ability, White said, include
phonemic awareness and
oral language. All of those
factors can be developed by


age 4, she said.
According to Florida stud-
ies, less than 40 percent of the
state's 5-year-olds were pre-
pared for kindergarten in
2003. Similar studies confirm
earlier schooling leads to out-
comes ranging from higher
IQ scores to fewer criminal
arrests.
For that reason, Georgia
started a pre-K initiative in
1995. Oklahoma followed suit
three years later. Yet, neither
state provides voluntary uni-
versal prekindergarten initia-
tives. Florida will be the first.
The only other state that
has mandated a universal
pre-K is West Virginia. Plans
for that state will be complete
by 2012, according to Florida's
Department of Education
Web site.

Turgeon is new Venice Middle School principal


The VHS assistant principal will take over
at the school until a permanent replacement for,
GaryWetherill is named following a site analysis.


BYANGELINE TAYLOR
STAFF WRITER

One principal has retired
while another has been ap-
pointed to take his place -
albeit temporarily.
Venice Middle School
Principal Gary Wetherill, who,
has been on administrative
leave since Oct. 8, will offici-
ally retire from the district July
1, after nine years of service.


Wetherill's leave was at the
request of his supervisor, Di-
rector of Secondary Schools
Barbara Chomko, and was
agreed to.
"Mr. Wetherill's leave is
personal in nature," Chomko
wrote at the time ina letter to
VMS parents. "At my request,
and in collaboration with Mr.
Wetherill, he is currently on
leave for an indefinite period
of time."


"It was a personal deci-
sion on his part," Chomko
said ofWetheril's retirement,
which was announced at;
Tuesday's school board
meeting. "He has other pro-'
fessional goals."
New for now
School officials also an-
nounced the changing of the
guard at VMS Tuesday.'
After Wetherill's departure,
Assistant Principal Michelle
Henderson held the top spot
until a successor was named.
Now Venice High School As-
sistant Principal Jack Turgeon


will serve as acting principal
at VAMS. He was selected for
the job among four candi-
dates in an acting principal
application process in De-
cember.
The process included the
four candidates being inter-
viewed after responding to 12
questions ranging from re-
cruitment experience to per-
sonal and professional
growth.
"Jack was identified as the
individual who met the high-
est standards," Chomko said.
"Michelle Henderson will re-
turn to the AP role. She has


done an incredible job."
The acting principal posi-
tion is only temporary,
Chomko said. A site analysis
will be conducted on Feb. 7.
During that time the commu-
nity, parents, students and
staff will be invited to identify
qualities and areas of need
for the school.
An advertisement will
publish internally for 10 days
inviting current principals to
the interviewing process.
Turgeon can also apply if he's
interested in the job full-time.
Now, Turgeon's just excited
about the opportunity.


"I'm looking forward to the
opportunity to work with ex-
cellent and seasoned staff,"
said Turgeofi.
Turgeon's strengths includ-
ed a dedication to student
achievement, Chomko said.
His background includes be-
ing an assistant principal at
'VHS and Sarasota high
schools. He was a behavior
specialist and a classroom
teacher for the emotionally
handicapped atVHS.

To get you started, here's
what you need to know about
cardiovascular exercise.
Aerobic training exercises
are any activity which in-
creases your heart rate via
working of the body muscles.
Aerobic exercise strength-


ens the heart and lungs, oth-
erwise called the cardiovas-
cular system. An aerobically
fit individual can work longer,

a quicker recovery.
The benefits of cardiovas-
cular training include:

Weight loss
Reduced risk of heart dis-
ease
Increased lung capacity

Preventing diabetes

Target heart rate
The formula that the


YCMA uses to determine tar-
get training zone heart rate is
called the Karvonen Formula,
which calculates your heart
rate reserve range.
To calculate it, take your
pulse for one minute on three
successive mornings upon
waking up. (We will be using
the case of a 30-year-old male
whose resting pulse was 69,
70 and 71 for an average of 70
over the three days.)
Subtract your age from 220
(220-30=190) to get your tar-
get heart rate. Then subtract
your average resting heart
rate from your target heart
rate (190-70=120).
The lower boundary of the
percentage range is 50 per-
centof this plus, your resting
heart rate ((120 x .5) + 70 =

they will get the money to pay

jurisdiction over its mainte-

sibility laws. These areas pro-
vide enough space for a pair
of wheelchairs to pass each
other on the bridge.
Criticisms have focused on
the $8,000 estimated cost per
cutout for about a $100,000
price tag, especially since there
are no wheelchair ramps to
even get on the bridge.
On top of.that, the steep
grade of Venice Avenue
Bridge leaves others wonder-
ing if a person using a wheel-
chair could even make it
across the span.
Newman said crosswalks
with wheelchair access ramps
will be installed at each end of
the bridge. Much like pedes-
trian crosswalks in downtown
Venice, vehicles will have to


yield to pedestrians crossing
Venice Avenue in order to get
on the bridge.
The passing zones, cross-
walk and wheelchair ramps
will make Venice Avenue
Bridge compliant with
Americans with Disabilities
Act requirements, Newman
said.
"It won't be perfect, but it
will be in compliance and as
good as it can be for now,"
Newman said. "It would be
nice to have the sidewalks
wider, but without a major
project changing the movable
stands, we just can't do that."

TOURISM from page 1A
of an influx of people from
the Midwest asking for infor-
mation about things like what
to see and where to go for day
trips," Pierce said. "Prior to
that it was questions about
relocation."
Flatline
Haley would not say there
are fewer tourists this year
(compared to the same time


in previous years), but said
tourism throughout the
county has flatlined this year.
"Our overall number of vis-
itors is flat, but they are pay-
ing a lot more," Haley said.
Haley said one complaint
visitors have is the lack of
convenient public trans-
portation to places of interest
in the area.
"We hear some say they are
dismayed because there is no
trolley system," Haley said.


"You try to put them on SCAT
and it's complicated."
Haley said there is another
amenity that has been dis-
cussed in Sarasota, but went
nowhere.
"Water taxis," she- said.
"How fabulous would that
be?"

SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Low-income families in
Sarasota and Charlotte coun-
ties who lack health insur-
ance have an opportunity to
enroll their children in a
state-run affordable insur-
ance plan.
Throughout January, the
health departments in both
counties have joined with
Florida Healthy Kids to take
applications for low-cost
health insurance through the
Florida KidCare program. The
program is open to working
families with uninsured chil-
dren under 19 years old who
are not eligible for Medicaid.
The enrollment period be-
gan Jan. I and ends Jan. 30.
"We're joining Healthy
Kids to get the word out about
this 30-day enrollment period
because no application can
be processed after Jan. 30,"
said Barbara Laidlaw, execu-
tive nursing director of Sara-
sota County's Health and Hu-
man Services Department.
The new enrollment peri-
od became possible after the
Florida Legislature increased
funding for Healthy Kids in
2004 to cover more eligible
children.
According to Diane Ship-
ley, a spokeswoman for the
Sarasota County Health De-
partment, parents must com-
plete and send in a one-page
application form along with
income documentation to
prove eligibility. The following
income documents are. re-
quired: copies of latest pay
stubs covering a one-month
period, W-2 form, and the lat-
est 1040/Income Tax return
form. These documents are
required for all family, mem-
bers who receive an income..

ty can take several weeks and
coverage cannot begin until
eligibility has been deter-
mined and the full premium

Check out gyms thoroughly before joining


A little homework can go a long way toward keep-
ing you working out rather than getting worked
over.


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER

Liz Compton arrived at her
gym one day expecting to
work out. What she didn't ex-
pect was to find her gym
closed permanently.
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is
urging Flridians to be aware
of the health studio law,
which provides consumer
'protection and recourse
against health clubs that do
not comply with the law.
Compton, FACS public in-
formation director, wants
people to be aware of the law
- which she wasn't when her
gym went out of business.
"Some do know about it,
because we do receive phone
calls with questions," Comp-
ton said. "But it is not as wide-


ly known as it should be."
Enacted in 1979, the law
requires facilities to be regis-
tered with the FACS. Many
gyms must also post a bond
to protect club members in
the event the health studio
goes out' of business. Non-
profit organizations, like the
YMCA, are exempt from this
law.
According to the state
agency, 87 health clubs went
out of business in 2004.
"I am a staunch proponent
of physical fitness, but con-
sumers who decide a health
club is. the way to go should
take a little time to check out
a club prior to signing a con-
tract," Bronson said. "There:
are more than 1,500 health
clubs registered with the
department and, unfortu-
nately, not all are able to stay
in business. Consumers need


to know what redress they
have if a gym does close its
doors."
Getting out
The law provides -con-
sumers with the right to can-
cel a contract for several rea-
sons, including:
Cancellation within three
days of signing a contract.
If the facility moves more
than 5 driving miles away
from its original location and
fails to provide, within 30
days, a facility of equal quality
located within the 5-mile
range.
Physically inability to use
most of the services.for which
you contracted, until the dis-
ability ends.
Bronson also recommends
consumers follow these tips
before'signing a contract:
Call the department's
helpline at (800) HELPFLA
(800-435-7352) to make sure
the health studio is registered
and to check its complaint
history.


Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the
department, as most that col-
lect fees in advance are re-
quired to do.
Prior to joining, ask about
the club's cancellation policy
should you move or become
physically unable to use the
facility.
Before signing up. visit
the club during the hours you
intend to use it to determine
whether it is overcrowded
and the equipment you plan
to use is available.
Find out if any of the ser-
vices offered require an addi-
tional fee.
Make sure to read pro-
posed contracts thoroughly
and make sure you get all
promises made by club per-
sonnel in writing. Ask ques-
tions to make sure you under-
stand the terms of your mem-
bership.

WEIGHT frompage6A


FOR THE WEIGH-IN
If you're participating through your Y membership, don't get
weighed in this week; that program begins Jan. 22.
But if you're going to lose weight through community programs
or on your own, you need to weigh in Thursday, Jan. 6, from 5 to 7
p.m. at the Gondolier Sun, or Saturday, Jan. 8, from 9 to 11 a.m. at
the South County Family YMCA.
Here's the protocol to follow for your body fat measurement:
* if possible, avoid diuretics seven days prior
* no alcohol for 48 hours prior to weigh-in
* avoid intense exercise 12 hours prior
* avoid eating or drinking, especially caffeinated products, four
hours prior
* empty your bladder 30 minutes prior


1301. The higher boundary is
85 percent plus your RHR
((120 x .85) + 70=172).
Using the Karvonen Form-
ula fori percentage of heart
rate reserve, this 30-year-old
man should be working be-
tween 130 and 172 BPM. Be-
ginner exercisers should use a
range of 50-75 percent.
Perceived exertion
Don't wornr if you don't
have a heart rate monitor; the
Borg scale of perceived exer-
tion is another way of deter-
mining how hard you are
working.


Using your own subjective
rate of perceived exertion on
a scale of 6-20 or a scale of 0-
10, you determine how hard
you feel you are working.
The talk- test is another
good way of establishing how
hard you are working: If you
find it difficult, to say a few.
words, you are probably
working out anaerobically.
For a good indication of aero-
bic exercise, you should be
able to say a few words, catch
your breath and then carryon
talking.
If you are talking.all the
way' through your workout,


it's a good bet that you're not
working hard enough.
In order
Exercise in this order:
*Warm-up
Stretch after you warm up
if you are going to do a high
intensity workout
Work up to your training
zone
Cool down for three-five
minutes. This helps prevent
blood pooling
Stretch
Aim for success
However you take the chal-


lenge, do it in a way that will
encourage you, not that will
give you an excuse to drop
out:
Exercise with a friend
Exercise with a pet
Set realistic goals
Keep records of progress
Start slowly and gradually
increase
Expect fluctuations in
progress and don't be dis-
couraged
Reward yourself for stick-
ing with your program (does-
n't have to be food!)

Next week: flexibility.

Parade of Pork To Benefit Venice Area Tourism

Sarasota County Convention & Visitors Bureau (SCVB) staff members,
VACC Ambassadors, Past President Brian R. Meurs, President/CEO
John G Ryan, and the VACC's Cham-BOAR of Commerce bid farewell
to Capt. Will B. Cooked during his tour of Venice.


It's not every day that a four foot tall fiberglass pig is rolled out of the
Chamber into the parking lot so that it can bid a fond farewell to another
oversized fiberglass pig riding in the back of a pick up truck. It's also not every
day that the Venice area is granted a wonderful opportunity to create a buzz,
and generate additional tourist traffic.
The Sarasota County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce, and Venice MainStreet have been working together to
find ways to get more publicity and exposure for the South'County area. One
idea that came to fruition December 14th was to showcase the Venice Art
Center's Pigs in Paradise display. With the loan of Crow's Nest Restaurant's
pig, Capt. Will B. Cooked,. the SCVB devised a plan to parade the pig
throughout Venice to key locations where photo opportunities could take place.
The SCVB made stops with the fiberglass swine at the Crow's Nest, South
Jetty, Casperson Beach, Horse & Chaise Inn, the Art Center, Chamber of
Commerce, the MainStreet business area, Calusa Lakes, Oscar Scherer State
Park, and Spanish Point. Capt. Will B. Cooked made a final stop at the SCVB's
Visitors' Information Center in Sarasota where he will reside for the next couple
months. The idea behind the pig parade is to create interest about the Venice
area and capture some of the tourist traffic that flows through the Visitors'
Center in Sarasota. Channel 7 WWSB, the Venice Herald-Tribune, and the
Venice Gondolier Sun were among the many media outlets which covered the
pig's tour through town. With local television and newspaper coverage, along
with a display at the Visitors' Center, Venice should be seeing an influx of
visitors coming down to see ourdowntown area, beaches, shops, and restaurants.

Ken Modzelewski at the South County

Denita Browning, the Preschool Director. She immediately thought ofafamily:
with a single mom of a 3, 2 and 1 year old. The Ambassadors were able to
purchase Thanksgiving Dinner, decorations for their tree, Christmas outfits
for all three kids and mom, three toys for each child, two outfits for each child,
a pair of shoes for each child, diapers, and disposable cameras with
developing. In addition, members donated clothes, a massage, an oil and lube
service for the family car, and a haircut. First Baptist Church of Venice
provided Christmas dinner so we were able to spend more money on the kids.
On December 24th; the group delivered the gifts late at night so that the
children in the family would truly believe thatSanta did pay them a visit!

and Brenda Esposito for being Santa's helpers and wrapping gifts.


A Bett r Solution, Inc.





A BETTER SOLUTION OF VENICE
The Venice area is extremely fortunate to have so many personal senior
care facilities dedicated to the spirit of'sincere compassion and individual
caring.
It's fitting during the holiday season we proudly salute A Better Solution
of Venice and owner Carol Binette-Snodgrass, who joined the Chamber
shortly after opening her business in January 1998.
'Here are excerpts from a letter to the Business Development Committee.
"For the past four years, I have been the Power of Attorney and primary
caregiver for my elderly aunt living in Venice. As I live in Atlanta, this has
been no easy task but would have been impossible without A Better
Solution and their excellent home companions/caregivers.
My aunt's care needs started with having a home companion for a few
hours each day and escalated through the years to a full, 24/7 imperative.
All I needed to do was call Carol, sometimes on an emergency basis with
no notice whatsoever, and our need was met. With my aunt's ever declining
mental and physical condition, A Better Solution adjusted the hours of the
ladies who gave so freely and lovingly of their time with her. Not only were
our needs immediately met, my aunt received loving care from the same
core of caregivers which was a huge part of keeping her comfortable and
secure with the familiar smiling faces she knew and was used to having in
her home.
My aunt passed away in July of this year sleeping peacefully away in
her own home which was our promise to her and our goal in care giving.
This would not have been possible withoutA Better Solution, their dedicated
and caring home companions and excellent management skills."
A Better Solution of Venice is located in the Lake View Office Park, 411
Commercial Court, Suite G, in Venice.

OUR VIEW


A belated Christmas present from the Venice Gondolier Sun


Over the last year or so we've redesigned
the paper, made it more readable,
added features, beefed up our coverage
of local government. But we thought we
could still give our readers more. The ques-
tion was, what?
Then it hit us: "more" is exactly what we
could give you- more papers.
So beginning the week of Jan. 17 there will
be three editions of the Gondolier Sun each
week, on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
This will be a great opportunity to report
the news in an even more timely manner, to
add features we haven't had room for and
make the entire paper better.
We're very proud to have been named the
best weekly in our circulation class by the
Florida Press Association for the last sixyears,
but we know there is always room for
improvement. The challenge of providing
you an extra paper every week gives us the
chance to take a look at what we've been do-


ing and what we haven't in a new way.
Here are some of the things we have in mind:
A broader variety of columnists, on the
opinion pages and elsewhere, and regular
columns from city, county and school offi-
cials.
A social column.
More history features and photos.
A seniors page, featuring our Savvy
Senior. column, a Medicare advice column
and local writers on senior issues.
More sports columns.
More puzzles and games.
An improved (but not bigger) TV book.
Bigger photos and regular photo fea-
tures.
We'll be offering our advertisers an
incredible chance to increase their exposure
for very little additional cost. Contact your ad
representative, or ad manager Dave Cherry at
207-1210.
Those are some of our ideas; you may have


others. Send them to Bob Mudge, 200 E. Ven-
ice Ave., Venice, FL 34285, or bmudge
@venicegondolier.com.
We've expanded our editorial staff to help
fill the extra space we're going to have, but
we'd like your help too.
We are always interested in tips about
potential news stories. They can be mailed, e-
mailed, faxed or phoned in to the editor or
any of the staff writers. We would prefer to
have the name and phone number of the
person submitting the information, but we
realize that circumstances can make disclos-
ing your identity risky.
Send us a press release about any happen-
ing or event that doesn't fall in the category of
news story. We need them at least two weeks
in advance to make sure they get into our cal-
endar on time. Please use e-mail; items sub'-
mitted that way don't have to be typed in and
can be prepared to go in the paper much
faster.


You love to take pictures and we love to
print them. We can use prints, negatives,
discs and e-mailed photos for reproduction.
But there are some things we can't work with:
Polaroid photos.
Printouts of photos.
Copyrighted photos.
The better the picture, the better we can
reproduce it. Close-ups are better than long
shots, and pictures of a few people are better
than pictures of a crowd.
Please submit the name of the photogra-
pher, the names of all the people in the pic-
ture and the phone number of someone to
call if we need more information.
Working together, we can make your com-
munity paper the best in the country.
Venice is a big little city, and is growing all
the time. We plan to grow with it, and contin-
ue to keep you informed about everything
that makes this the best place in the world to
live.


City council



is not for sale


JOHN SIMMONDS
GUEST 11MNJSMM


I don't know how to re-
spond to Edi martin's column
of Dec. 29, or whether to
respond to such a column at
all. I don't want to get into a
lengthy newspaper debate
with him, because simply I
don't have the time for it.
I think, however, his sug-
gestion that Venice City
Council members' vote could
be bought for a few bucks'
campaign contribution is so
insulting and ludicrous that it
demands some kind of re-
sponse, because there are
those who might think the
lack of one might give his out-
landish contention some
credibility.
We are not the U.S. Con-
gress. We, are a group of dedi-
cated, elected residents who
could finance our own cam-
paigns with our own re-
sources if we decided to do so.
The growth problems
brought to the planning com-
mission and city council re-
garding facilities for our ex-
plosive influx of people are
not caused by the Millers, the
Boones, or other attorneys or
developers, but by new and
part-time residents such as
Ed Martin. These folks come
into town expecting the
beaches, roads; living accom-
modations and services such
as police, fire, trash collection,
sewer and water to be ex-
panded to accommodate
them, and they are.
The expansions, of infra-
structures, living accommo-
dations and services go
through a detailed, thought-
ful, orderly arid public pro-
cess, where public input is
encouraged. Our planning
staff (all with impressive cre-
dentials) spends a great deal
of time, expertise and effort
reviewing and encouraging
modification, when appropri-
ate, of proposed construction
projects to make them as
compatible with the commu-
nity as possible, before mak-
ing recommendations.
No project comes to the
planning commission or
council without a staff recom-
mendation for approval or
denial. I do not remember a
time when council has passed
any proposal that has not had
a recommendation for
approval by staff.
Some of the most recent


projects never come to coun-
cil. They were reviewed, mod-
ified and approved by the
planning commission. One is
Beleza (the old Best Western
Motel on the beach).
The Beleza property was
zoned condo, not hotel, so the
planning commission had no
option except to permit a
condo there. Its approval was
for one story lower than the
adjacent condo and lower
than others down the street.
Others that never came to
council were The Waterfront
and Roberts Ba\y
Venetian Shores (the old
Gulf Tide Motel) was first pro-
posed s a five-story condo.
Since the owners have been
represented by the Boone law
firm, the proposal has been
reduced to three stories. It
hasn't yet gone to the plan-
ning commission or council.
Villa Largo was presented
by the Boone law firm at our
last meeting, but not approv-
ed by council; it was sent back
to the planning commission.
The vote was 7-0, hardly a
vote by council members
who are compromised by
campaign contributions.
Members of the Citizens
for Quality Government, be-'
fore they formed, met several
times over a long period be-
cause of concerns that quality
people were not coming out
for election, or were coming
out so late in the process that
they could not run a com-
plete campaign.
We also had our collections
of nuts who made loud nois-
es, and who either did not file
before election or were not
elected. We at that time made
individual contributions to
candidates.
I had no thought at the
time of ever running for elec-
tion to public office again, so I
was the one who, meeting
after meeting, kept promot-
ing the idea we should form a
political action committee. I
was then asked to put a PAC
together.
I picked up the necessary
papers to do so and was
struck by the notion that we
needed someone who had a
sterling reputation to run the
PAC. The group recruited
Merle Graser as president and
he has led ever since.
It is important that every-
one should know 98 percent
of the PAC's membership
never.has anything to bring
for approval to the city, or any
personal financial invest-
ments council could favor-
ably influence. They, along
with current council mem-
bers, would not tolerate any
attempt by PAC members to
apply political pressure for
personal gain.

Industrial area needs a Band-Aid, not amputation


Editor:
I have been reading the articles byJ.J. Andrews regarding the
industrial district. Have you?
Have you taken a walk or a ride through this area? It is. one
of the most interesting areas in Venice. These are people that
work with their minds and hands, something I greatly admire.
In this industrial district are many of the best: custom-car
creators, photographers, stained-glass designers, sign makers,
mechanics, talented musicians, wood workers, restaurants,
pool companies, electronics with worldwide patents, silk
screeners, printers. There may be factors that need addressing,
but let's not gb overboard.,
With tongue in cheek: We need more condos, to tax the util-
ities, add congestion to the highways, take every little piece of
land and build on it, even when it means you get rid of the best
of Venice?
Move these people out? How many will leave Venice
because they were forced out? I realize money talks, but at
what expense the little guys'? In my opinion, this will be
Venice's loss.
Officials question if"cement plants and auto body shops are
the proper scenery?" The proper scenery? Whoa.
I'll bet many Venetians don't know what talented people
work in this area. Stop watching TMV playing golf, boating and
fishing and make just one visit to the area with open eyes and
open thinking.
And then may many concerned, fair-minded citizens listen
to their heart and gut, turn out to give their honest opinions at
the meetings.
Save Venice's unique asset.

Wild horse protection
is weakened
Editor:
I am outraged at the sur-
prise inclusion of a rider in
the omnibus appropriations
bill that severely undermines
the federal Wild Free-Roam-
ing Horse and Burro Pro-
tection Act.
Slipped in by Sen. Conrad
Burns, R-Montana, without
any public discussion or
hearings and no opportunity
for a separate vote of the
Senate, the rider directs the
federal government to sell our
nation's wild horses to the
highest bidders, without any
of the protections that cur-
rently prevent the shipment
of these animals to the
slaughterhouse.
We must let our federal leg-
islators know that Americans
will not stand for this. Please
contact your senators and
representative today to urge
them to reinstate protections
for America's wild horses and
burros.
To find your legislators, go


to http://action.fund,org/
directory/. Although e-mail is
convenient, it is often not a
productive means to contact
federal legislators. To make
your efforts most effective, I
urge you to make a personal
call or write a letter to your
legislators.
The Wild Free-Roaming
Horse and Burro Act passed
in 1971 as a result of an enor-
mous outcry of citizens
through letters and phone
calls to legislators. Before this
bill was enacted, horses and
burros were shot and slaugh-
tered by the hundreds of
thousands.
Thank you for saving our
treasured wildlife.

City watchwords for 2005: Partnerships, accountability


S'-



MARTY BLACK
COLUMNIST


Just shy of a year ago I ac-
cepted the opportunity to
serve as city manager forVen-
ice.
At that time the city was in


the. midst of disputes with
several federal and state
agencies. We were facing un-
resolved issues with Sarasota
County regarding fire and
ambulance services, water
and wastewater services and
economic development ini-
tiatives. The federal govern-
ment had informed us it did
not intend to honor its agree-
ment to contribute toward
renourshing our local beach-
es.
We worked to create part-
nerships. Now, many of those
issues have been or are about
to be resolved for the benefit
of the community. Other
challenges such as hurri-


canes have arrived unex-
pectedly, but city staff re-
sponded with enthusiasm
and pride.
Sarasota County and the
city have a conceptual agree-
ment to jointly site a new fire
and ambulance station along
Laurel Road, east of Interstate
75. Formal agreements are
being finalized through the
cooperation of the city and
county attorneys' offices.
The city and county signed
a formal agreement to con-
nect reuse water systems and
share capacities. This agree-
ment was critical to resolving
the concerns of the Florida
Department of Environmen-


tal Protection regarding the
operation of our wastewater
treatment facilities.
Together with all the other
local cities and the county, a
single economic develop-
ment agency has been creat-
ed and will be jointly funded
and managed.
Most significantly, council
member Fred Hammett and I
worked closely throughout
the summer with our con-
gressional representatives.
We successfully lobbied for
federal funding to meet our
beach renourishment needs.

Don't complain to me because you live in a dump


Not picked on. I have a comment about the code enforce-
ment article. I think it is great code enforcement is bearing
down on some of these trashy, neglected properties. I don't
understand how some of these people who live in places that
don't look fit for humans can complain they are being picked
on. No one wants to live next to trash like that. They are drag-


going down property values.

Unfair. I come from a state
where the school board
members get no salary. This
current situation needs to be
dealt with. It is grossly unfair
when the school board mem-
bers make more than begin-
ning teachers. Something is
wrong in Sarasota County.
Big deal. AAA reported gas
has gone down $.15 to $.20 to
$1.92.8 since October. Ha, ha.
My daughter in Michigan is
paying $1.72 for the last
month.
Love good, guns bad. I
have a comment about taking
Christ out of his birthday
party All the politically cor-
rect statements of calling it


Happy Holiday instead of
Christmas. Then you have all
these political groups saying
homosexuality is wrong. The
priorities are in the wrong
place. Two people who love
each other is a good thing.
Soldiers carrying guns is a
bad thing.
Creed. In regards to certain
actions by the federal govern-
ment like the Patriot Act.
There are two quotes to keep
in mind: "People who sacri-
fice a little of their freedom for
their security deserve neither
freedom nor security." Also,
"Necessity is the plea for
every infringement of human
freedom; it is the argument of


tyrants: it is the creed of
slaves." William Pitt.
To cat owners. Please don't
let your cat run free at night to
kill defenseless birds, and
don't expect to see kitty again
if you do.
Kudos, FHP. I would like to
say, thank you Florida High-
way Patrol, for making 1-75 a
safer highway for all to use.
Your proactive stance has
modified the behavior of
those who choose to speed or
drive aggressively. Every be-
havior needs a consequence,
whether good or bad.
Needs, not wants. Could
we forget all the drives for toys
for children? Have you ever
driven through neighbor-
hoods after Christmas and
seen toys on the streets and
bicycles in the ditches. We
would do better with drives
for shoes for kids, jeans for
kids, books for kids, even
clothing vouchers, even ex-


ams for children. Let's make
our charitable contributions
mean something.
Too late. I read with inter-
est in the paper about the get-
fit program. However, as with
most activities in Venice, you
fail to realize that many of us
are working people. The
classes are not scheduled at a
time when working people
could attend. I would like to
see this situation remedied.
Off alert. I would like to
know what happened to the
emergency alert phone sys-
tem. The city of Venice had a
serious water line break on
Field Avenue and although
the water line was repaired,
the city issued a water alert.
The vast majority of citizens
were completely unaware of
the health problems associat-
ed with a water line break.
What happened to the emer-
gency phone system?
Vision. I love the palm trees

on the island. It takes a lot of
confidence and vision to say
that in the future Venice will
look like a city on the gulf.
Keep up the great work.
Something's wrong. As I
understand it, the city council
and the mayor get full family
health care coverage for free.
Yet city employees, some
making less than $10 an hour,
are now expected to pay $40 a


month for coverage plus
more to insure their families.

that these folks are commit-
ted to quality government at
the city level, and they are not
going away.
No member of council is
active in selecting candidates
to be supported. Dan Boone,
hopefully, will continue to do
administrative work for the
CGQ until someone else vol-


unteers to do the job.
Ed's cheap shot at Fred
Hammett is over an expres-
sion Fred used to make the
point that we may need
some variety in the theme
districts.
We are considering what
we should do in the future
about three districts. Should


there be three different loca-
tions? What locations should
be retained or changed?
Should there be one citizen
board involved? Two? Three?
Should there be an appeal
process and if so how and
how administered?
I suspect there will be a lot
of discussion on this subject


in the future and much op-
portunity for public input.
And yes, maybe more expres-
sions to make a point that Ed
doesn't like.

Both of our children
attended the Early Childhood
Center for many years. Our
daughter, now 23, was in the
newborn room when it first
opened. Each morning when
we dropped our children off,
we knew that they would be
in competent, caring and lov-
ing hands.
Over the many years that


our children attended ECC,
we were always impressed
with the improvements to the
facilities, faculty and pro-
grams offered. Thanks to
Susan and her staff, the years
our children spent at the ECC
were happy and productive
ones and prepared them to
succeed in their lives.

we received confirmation
from the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers that the federal
government budgeted more
than $14 million toward the
cost of restoring Venice
Beach. The remaining $3 mil-
lion is our local and state


responsibility, and those
funds are already in place.
Over the course of the
coming year we will use this
column to provide insight
into considerations for
improving the quality of ser-
vices and efficiency of their


delivery to the Venice com-
munity. We will review two
primary focuses for this year:
partnerships and account-
ability.
We have initiated several
programs and administrative
changes intended to create a


more open, responsive and
efficient local' government.
Some will seem so funda-
mental you may be surprised
we haven't been doing them
already. Some changes may
create anxiety for our em-
ployees and require consider-


ing the impacts of having four
unions representing city
employees.
Other changes may chal-
lenge our abilities \but will
always be presented with the
overall goal of improving ser-
vice and quality of life for the


community. For more high-

LANDSCAPING & GARDENING
Q. What have you noticed about your lawn and your neighborhood?
A. If you have St. Augustine, Floratan, Bitter Blue, or Seville St. Augustine grass you should have
very little damage from the recent cold snap. There may be a few brown blades, however, Bahia
grass, in unprotected areas, may show some brown spots. The Bermuda lawn will recover as
soon as the warm weather returns.
The crabgrass in your lawn will turn a light tan or yellow color similar to wheat straw. This is
the time to cut out those areas and replace with sod or grass plugs. Control the germination of
crabgrass with a pre-emergence from High Yield. Using this product will help control the
germination of weed seed and crabgrass seed. You should use it 4 times a year to be successful.
An attractive lawn is a plus when selling your home, and enhances to neighborhood's
appearance. DUKE GARDEN CENTER can help you to achieve a healthy, well
manicured lawn that you will be proud of. Come in and talk to our staff and find out
how to achieve your goal of a green healthy lawn. ss

'Angels

in the

Outfield'

This is on the lines of the
old Righteous Brothers tune
"Rock'n Roll Heaven."
I can hear the lyrics now
... "If you believe in forever,
then life is just a one-night
stand, If there's a Rock 'n Roll
Heaven, you know they've
got a hell of a band."
If there ever was a sequel
to the movie "Angels in the
Outfield" shot in the Venice
area, then the storyline
would have to include two
women who showed undy-
ing loyalty to the youth base-
ball programs in the com-
munity.
Unfortunately, both Cathy
Matthews and Barb LaNinfa
have passed from this Earth.
Cathy moved on two years
ago. Barb left us just this past
week.
Both had sons who played
together on Venice Little
League All-Stars. They were
excellent players, helping
Venice to district and state
championships.
They both went on to
excel for the Venice High
Indians.
At whatever stop, they
were winners, a reflection of
a strong, loving family base.
Today, Mike Matthews is
looking forward to his junior
season at Florida Gulf Coast
University. Brian LaNinfa will
be a sophomore for the Mis-
sissippi State University Bull-
dogs.
Cancer can make you
wonder about the fairness of
life on this Earth.
Cathy Matthews and Barb
LaNinfa were plucked in
their prime, but we pray that
they are in a much better
place.
And on a glorious spring
night at the new Venice High
baseball complex, if you look
up, you might just be able to
catch a glimpse of them pa-
trolling above the diamond
... Venice's own "Angels in the
Outfield."

Indians 'D' sparks



win over Mantas


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


VHS's Kalen Lyons drives to
the basket against a host of
opposing players.


One of the trouble spots
with the Venice High boys
basketball team during a
recent seven-game losing
streak was putting together
four solid quarters.
The Indians would look
good at times, but with the
game on the line would stum-
ble and end up losing.
This time, Venice closed
the deal.
Fueled by a super second
half defensive effort, the
Indians defeated visiting
Lemon Bay, 41-34, Tuesday
night.
Venice led 24-23 at the half
but put on the clamps with
intense man-to-man defen-
sive pressure.
Lemon Bay had trouble
getting off a shot in the third
quarter, let alone a quality
one. The Manta Rays were
Just 1-for-4 in the third quar-
ter and 4-for-10 in the fourth
quarter.
Venice outscored the
Mantas 8-2 in the decisive
third session to take a 32-25
lead into the final eight min-
utes. The Indians made a big


stand at the end of the third
quarter, as they denied the
Mantas a clean look at the
basket over the final 40 sec-,
onds of the period.
The two teams played
evenly in the final session.
Venice got 14 points from
point guard Ariel Bonilla, who
had his finest game of the
season. Bonilla sank a trey
and converted 5-of-6 free
throw attempts.
I The Venice junior varsity
defeated Lemon Bay 47-37 as
guard Adam Reams scored 17
points.
Venice (4-7), which has
now won two straight, plays
host to Manatee Friday night.

Lady Indians destroy Manta Rays


BY GARY BROWN
STAFF WRITER


It took one quarter to get
going, but the Venice girls
basketball team showed.
against host Lemon Bay
Tuesday night why it's favor-
ed to win the Class 5A-
District 11 championship.
The Indians (13-1) rolled
to a 59-25 victory over the
Manta Rays, after leading
just 9-6 at the first-quarter,
break.
The Indians outscored
Lemon Bay (9-5) 24-6 in the
second quarter for a 33-12
halftime advantage and
rolled on from there.
"I expected something like
that in the first quarter," said


Venice coach Joe DiGiacomo.
"We had a two-week layoff
but we had several good
practices."
Lisa Hough led the Indians
with 23 points, including 11
of 12 shots ,from -the free
throw line. She was averaging
17 points a game coming into
the contest. Hough, 6-foot-0,
scored eight points in the sec-
ond quarter as the Indians
made their move.
With the 23 points, Hough
now needs 18 more to hit the
1,000 mark for her career.
Lemon Bay slowed the
game down in the first quar-
ter, but the Indians' took ad-
vantage of Manta Ray mis-
takes to pull away for the vic-
tory.


Venice outrebounded the
Manta Rays 30-22. Hough
had eight rebounds and
Vickee Mitchell seven for the
winners. Kylie Kasten, a 5-10
freshman, led Lemon Bay
with six:.Erin -Ernst, a 5-6
sophomore, led the Manta
Rays in scoring with 9 points
,and Chelsea Lauer, a 5-7
sophomore, added 7 points.
The Lady Indians will tan-
gle with visiting North Port at
7:30 p.m. Thursday and will
play at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at
Charlotte in a rescheduled
contest.
"That's our big district
game," said DiGiacomo.
"We're unbeaten in district
play so far (4-0) and we need
a victory Saturday."

Lady Tarpons even score with Venice


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The season tally says that
Charlotte and Venice split
their girls soccer matches
during the regular season,


each taking a 2-0 victory on
the road.
But in this "what have you
done for me lately?" world,
Allen Pfundtner would have
much rather been Joe Roca
Tuesday night.


Charlotte had defeated
Venice at Powell-Davis Stad-
ium.
The Lady Tarpons im-
proved to 4-10 while the Lady
Indians fell to 6-9.
"We were more aggres-
sive this time," compared
Roca to the early season loss
to Venice. "Our midfielders
and defense really played
well."
Roca was talking about
the likes of Corrine Dyer,
Amanda Cummings and Kat
Sprunk. Keeper Nicole Naz-
zarese was also sharp with
her second shutout of the,


season.
Charlotte got on the board
mid-way through the first half
as Dyer headed home a cor-
ner kick by Pam Quimby.
"We have a serious prob-
lem with corner kicks,"
Venice coach Allen Pfundt-
ner said. "We lose our mark.
They had a good cross and a
tall girl who had a nice
header."
The ball was down the
Charlotte end for much of
the second half, but Venice
had trouble getting quality
scoring opportunities.
"We're doing well putting


offensive pressure on oppo-
nents, but -we're not finish-
ing," Pfundtner said. "Char-
lotte made the most of its
opportunities."
Charlotte got the all-
important insurance goal
with 11 minutes remaining as
Blake Bettis got a pass
through to Quimby, who
whistled a bullet past Holly
Martin.
The Venice junior varsity
defeated Charlotte, 6-1.
The Venice varsity has a
big match at home Friday
night against Lakewood
Ranch.

Land preservation program embarrassed by billboards


Existing billboards on parcels were never
discussed with the Sarasota County Commission.
Program officials have moved quickly to have
several removed from U.S. 41 sites, but several
remain, including one on a narrow piece
turned over to the utilities division.


removed from a 3,550-acre
tract that fronts on U.S. 41
after it was purchased for
more than $16 million.
"We made it clear to the
owner that the billboards had
to be addressed," Sutton said,
"and they were gone in two
months."
Sarasota County and the


city of Sarasota have both
responded to the prolifera-
tion of billboards and signs
along busy roadways by
adopting ordinances that
sunset some of the largest
and prohibit new ones from
being erected that don't con-
form to strict rules.
Several years ago, Florida


lawmakers made it more
difficult for local govern-
ments to curtail billboards
when they adopted legisla-
tion that forces counties and
cities to pay for the removal
of existing ones. The law
forces local governments to
negotiate with billboard
companies.


If the sides can't agree on
a solution, the parties must
submit to nonbinding arbi-
tration. A three-member
panel will identify alternative
billboard locations.
Cities and counties that
insist a billboard be removed
have to pay the company for
legally taking property.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A tax-supported Sarasota
County program to purchase
environmentally sensitive
tracts and preserve them
from future development hit
an embarrassing snag when
it was revealed that billboards
along U.S. 41 are located on
several of the publicly ac-
quired sites.
"Now that this can of
worms has been opened, we
need a report that tells us
what the situation is," com-
missioner Nora Patterson
said. "This commission needs
to hear it when these issues
arise. If there is a sign, is it
under a contract with an
end?"
In November, the com-
mission was in the middle of
a routine dis-
cussion about
the proposed
purchase of
420 acres for
inclusion in a
10,000-acre
pr e s erve
along' Deer
Prairie Creek.
The purchase Mills
contract was
for more than $7 million and
specifics were being ex-
plained.
"This price tag (of $17,800
per acre) is high in today's
market." said Natural Re-
sources Manager Eric Sutton,
"but lower than the appraised
value."
He also discussed several
10-acre lots the sellers wanted
an option to buy back at
some future date.
Commission chair Jon
Thaxton caught everyone
flat-footed when he raised the
issue of a billboard still stand-
ing on 518 acres of Deer
Prairie Creek land the county
recently purchased along
U.S. 41 near Warm Mineral
Springs.
"I'm disappointed. We're
attempting to create a
(scenic) corridor on a federal
highwayy"
Thaxton said.
"Do we nego-
tiate deals
that allow bill-
boards? It
screws up the
entire pro-
billboards on
Thaxton our property.
I'm afraid we
had a chance to get rid of it
and didn't." '
Two to go
Commissioner David Mills
expressed surprise that bill-
boards were somehow al-
lowed on parcels purchased
for preservation.
"Billboards have never
entered into these discus-
sions," he said. "I'd be in favor
of going out there this after-
noon and taking them down."
As it turns out, the bill-
board situation isn't all that
bad. Two still stand on prop-
erties, bought through the
county program, while three
others have recently been
removed either under terms
of purchase agreements or as
a- result of negotiatiofis after
an acquisition.
"The billboard along U.S.
41 inWarm Mineral Springs is
most' problematic," Sutton
said. "We held money back in
escrow until it was removed,
then.spent it in litigation to
reach a resolution. It will be
removed within three years."
A second billboard sits on a
sliver of land along U.S. 41
that was part of a larger par-
cel, then carved off and given
to the utilities department for
a sewer lift station. Utilities
officials have been notified to
reach a deal with the owner
and tear it down.

wish will


come true

Public art will be popping
up in all the right places in
Venice thanks to the efforts of
a new public arts committee
established last spring by
VABI (Venice Area BeaU-
tification Inc.) One of the
"rightest" places is the back of
the Venice Gondolier Sun
Print Shop where the Venice
Gondolier Sun is printed. The
back wall of the print shop
building faces east and abuts
the Venetian Waterway Park
walking trail. Former Gondo-
lier Sun employee .Sylvia
Tabler used to talk about that
plain wall -and how nice it
would be to see a mural there.
In September, her wish will
come true.
The Gondolier Sun is pro-
viding the wall. VABI has
issued a call to artists for
design submissions. Appli-
cants will submit a paragraph
describing their concept idea
and a sketch or finished illus-
tration, no larger than 8.5
inches by 11 inches, keeping
in mind that the mural will be
visible from the Venice Ave-
nue Bridge and should not
constitute an ad. Applicants
also should provide a current
resume listing public art
experience and any public
collections in which their
work may be found, plus a let-
ter of recommendation.
Applications must be in b
March 11, and the work must
be completed by Sept. 30.
Application forms are avail-
able at the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce and
the Venice Art Center. Com-
pleted applications should be
sent to Venice Area Beau-
tification, in care of theVenice
Area Chamber of Commerce,
597, South .Tamiami Trail,
Venice, FL 34285. Winners will
be notified by phone on or
before March 11.
The Public Arts Committee
is chaired by Jean Trammell
and includes Bonnie Kaiser,
Barbara Freeman, Georgia
Miller, Kathleen Winder and
Julia Hyman. For more infor-
mation, call Faith Pridmore at
488-2236 during business

PHOTO CcOuRTES, OF DAI I MILLER
Congressman Dan Miller was aboard Air Force One with President George W. Bush on Sept. 11, 2001, shortly after the terrorist attacks that resulted in the
destruction of New York City's Trade Center. Damage to the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and additional deaths when a fourth plane crashed in a Pennsylvania
field. While aboard Air Force One en route to Washington, D.C., Miller scribbled notes about what was happening. Those notes have yet to be published.





Miller will open SILL season in




Venice today, Jan. 5


BYJOHN MCCAFFERTY
Gi.iIfS WklitR


Former U.S. Rep. Dan nMill-
er is no stranger to Venice.
During his 10 years in Con-
gress, he frequently held town
meetings for large crowds
here and elsewhere in the
13th Congressional District.
He's expected to draw a big
audience again today, Jan. 5,
when he kicks off the 2005
Sarasota Institute of Lifetime
Learning (SILL) lecture series
in Venice at 2 p.m., at the-
Venice Church of the Naza-
rene,
There are many reasons
why locals and snowbirds
may want to hear him. When
he retired from politics in
2003, Miller kept a self-im-
posed 10-year term limit.
How many politicians do


that?
As a fiscal conservative
Republican and a social mod-
erate, he found himself in
some difficult positions in
Congress, where he served on
the powerful House Appro-
priations Committee, Budget
Committee and the Com-
mittee on Government Re-
form. He crusaded against
corporate welfare and pork
barrel legislation. He favored
using part of the budget sur-
plus for Social Security and
Medicare. He voted for
NAFTA and led efforts to.
reform extradition laws which
enabled criminals to escape
prosecution.
Today, miller worries about
the nation's growing budget
deficit. He's also concerned
with the polarization in Con-
gress and transformation ot

the political parties in recent
years. If those aren't reasons
enough to hear him, here's
another:
On Sept. 11, 2001, Nliller
was with President Bush at
Booker Elementary School in
Sarasota when the president
got word about the terrorist
attacks on the World Trade
Center and the Pentagon. He
flew off with the president
from Sarasota-Bradenton In-
ternational Airport and spent
the next several hours with
htim on Air Force One.
"It was a surreal experi-
ence," Miller said. "Being on
Air Force One itself is special.
But to be on it while this was
happening... I thought about
Tom Clancy's book, 'Debt of
Honor,' in which a Japan
Airlines pilot takes over a 747
jet, crashes it into the Capitol
and kills members of Con-
gress and the Supreme Court.
I kept asking myself, how can
this kid from Bradenton be
here now on Air Force One?
This can't be real."
The former college profes-
sor and businessman reflect-
ed on that fateful day and his
life in Congress during an
exclusive inteniew recently at
his 1920s-era, Spanish-style
home in Bradenton's Palma
Sola Park. Miller and his wife,
Glenda, have lived in the rose-
colored house since 1973 but
are empty-nesters now. They
have a son, Daniel, a daugh-
ter, Kathryn Effley, and two
grandchildren.
A sit-down with Dan Miller
is like a reunion with your
favorite cousin.
"Call me Dan," he said,.
opening the front door and
flashing a big smile. A hand
shake later he asked if it
would be OK to meet in the
sun room.
Just then, a long-awaited

apologized and disappeared
with him. Just as quickly,
Glenda Miller appeared, in-
troduced herself, and offered
me coffee. She also gave me a
quick tour of their charming
old home, pointing out that
"we have another room up-
stairs where we keep our
junk."
Talk about friendly and
down-to-earth. Mrs. Miller
could have been my sister.
Back in the sun room


again, -Dan Miller explained
that Florida Congressman
Adam Putnam also was
aboard Air Force One on the
morning of Sept. 11.
'"After we left the school
and arrived at the airport, we
took off quickly around 10
o'clock," he said. "We were
told not to use our cell
phones because they didn't
want anyone to know where
Air Force One was. In some

Everyone profits when kids learn about money


BYJOHN ADDISON
GUEST COLUMNIST

Investing the time and
effort to teach young people
about money can pay big div-
idends in more ways than
one.
Teaching young people
how money works can also
present an opportunity to
teach young people lessons
about responsibility, plan-
ning for the future and other
life lessons.
One thing to consider is
that different topics are best
addressed at different ages.
Here are some tips:


Ages 3-5: Keep it concrete.
Use cash around preschool-
ers credit cards are too
abstract. Let them collect
coins in a clear container so
they see the money. For
starters, try showing a child
that five pennies equals a
nickel.
Age 6: Make allowances.
Now is the perfect time to
start a weekly allowance.
Many kids begin with an
allowance of about $5 a week
until age 8. Some parents use
a formula based on age. For
example, an allowance of $6
a week at age 6.
Age 9-10: Budget time.


Introduce them to a basic
household expense budget.
Open a savings account for
them if you haven't already.
Age 11: Take stock. Help
them understand stock mar-
ket basics such as why
prices go up or down. Teach
them about compound in-
terest.
Age 12: Responsibility
rules. Extend their weekly
allowance to twice a month.
Have them begin earning
money outside the home.
Age 13-15: Take the plunge.
Compile a list with your child
for what you expect his or her
allowance to cover and use


that total when determining
allowance. Introduce them to
credit with a debit or prepaid
card.
Age 16-18: Future focused.
If you child has a part-time
job, discuss tax-related issues.
Consider opening a Roth IRA
for him or her.
Age 18+: Damage control.
College freshmen are del-
uged with credit card offers.
Even if you've introduced
them to responsible use of
credit, they may still come
home maxed out. Em-
phasize the importance of a
budget and learning from
your mistakes.

Now you're cooking


'The Polar Express' arrives


at the European Academy


STAFF REPORT

At a time when fast food is
frequently on the menu for
family dinners, Barbara An-
derson, Ed. D., encourages
parents to cook with their
children.
Anderson, vice president
of education for KinderCare
Learning Centers, which
operates 1,230 early child-
hood education and child
care centers nationwide, said
"Cooking with your children
encourages participation in
household activities and
teaches basic skills.
Even preschoolers will
begin to learn math as they
measure ingredients. And
cooking gives you an oppor-
tunity, to talk about good
nutrition.
Children should under-
stand the relationship be-
tween food choices and such
diseases as obesity, diabetes
and hyperactivity."


Anderson suggests starting
with simple favorites like
pudding mixes, where all
that's needed is measuring
milk and stirring. With adult
supervision, children can as-
semble their favorite sand-
wich, microwave soup or hot
cereal, toss salads or spread
peanut butter or soft cheese
on celery stalks.
Most children enjoy using
a blender to create smoothies
with milk or yogurt and their
favorite fruit.
"Be sure to emphasize the
importance of careful hand
washing," Anderson said.
And, of course, setting the
table and helping clear after
meals are traditional roles for
young family members as
they learn to do their share.
Helping plan the menu,
shop for groceries and partic-
ipating in preparation may
make fussy eaters more en-
thusiastic about mealtimes,
as well.

The children at the Euro-
pean Academy began their
day recently sipping hot
chocolate as they listened to


"The Polar Express" by Chris
Van Allsburg. Parents, teach-
ers and students came to
school in their pajamas just
like in the book.
The students were thrilled
when Santa arrived by train

with presents for everyone.
Boys and girls had a fun-filled
day taking train rides, open-
ing presents, creating crafts
and bouncing in a bounce
house.
Families of students were
extremely generous again this
year as they filled a van with
toys in support of Toys for
Tots. It was a wonderful day
for all.


Wearing pajamas was so
much fun for the staff of EAEE
that they returned during
winter vacation for a Pajama
Pizza Party.
It was a treat to come to
school at night and give
moms and dads a chance to
do some last-minute shop-
ping. Teeth were brushed
before sending home some
very sleepy students.

Mortgage holders: Know



bank's insurance procedure


STAFF REPORT


To assist Floridians who
recently received claims set-
tlement checks or who are
expecting payments from in-
surance companies, Florida
Chief Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher is advising storm
victims with mortgages to be
aware of bank procedures for
receiving insurance funds to
make repairs.
"If you have a mortgage,
you will need to work closely
with your lender to complete
the repairs process," Gal-,
lagher said in a statement
Monday. "Your bank may
choose to release funds only

tion to members and friends
who stepped forward to help
by opening the office on
Miami Avenue from 10 a.m. to
1 p.m. daily during the transi-
tion period.

You can e-mail Roger
Button at: businews@

The Venice Gondolier Sun
regrets the error.


as repairs are complete, but
should also remain focused
on assisting you in restoring
your home as quickly as pos-
sible."
While policies may vary
with individual financial in-
stitutions, insurance checks
are usually made payable to
both the homeowner and
mortgage holder. To receive
funds, homeowners must
forward claim checks to their
lenders for endorsement. For
best security, a consumer
should wait to endorse his or
her check until after the
lender has done so. However,
lenders may have additional
procedures to follow.


The lender may require a
contractor's estimate of re-
pair costs before any funds
are released. The lender may
also retain insurance pro-
ceeds for disbursement as
repairs are completed. Your
lender may be willing to
release a portion of the pro-
ceeds if payments are
required to begin repairs.
However, consumers are ad-
vised never to pay construc-
tion contractors, in cash or
in full, before work begins.
Gallagher, who first issued
this advice in the aftermath of
Hurricane Charley, reiterated
the message after a recent
increase in calls from con-


sumers concerned about the
repairs process and dealing
with mortgage lenders.
For consumers who are
cooperating with their len4-
ers, but continue to experi-
ence delays or difficulties
completing the repairs proc-
ess, Gallagher said insurance
specialists are available to
assist at (800) 22-STORM.
Consumers should also con-
tact the Department of
Financial Services if they are
experiencing delays in deal-
ing with adjusters, receiving
claims settlement offers, or
having a dispute with an
insurance company over a
settlement offer.

Resolve to start the new year right


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT


Do you have questions
relating to your child's educa-
tion? Do you want to voice an
opinion about what's hap-
pening in our schools? This
column is focused on answer-
ing common questions and
sharing views on education.

Resolutions renew our
commitments to work toward
goals that improve our lives in
some way. This is a great time
of the year to make resolu-
tions that can positively affect
you and your child's perfor-
mance at work and school.
Here are some suggestions.
Diet
Eat mostly healthy foods.
You and your child can work
together to make lists of
favorite healthy foods and
create menus. Another idea is
to choose and add a "new to
you" fruit or vegetable from
the produce section each
week. Purchase snacks such
as blue corn chips, baby car-
rots, cheese and apples for
after work or school hunger
pangs. You may also want to
consider taking and giving
your child multiple vitamins
daily.

Exercise regularly
We've all heard the statis-
tics related to our overweight
population. Current diet
gurus stress low-fat foods and
walking as the best ways to
control weight. Overweight
children and adults are often
unable to do their best at
work or school.
They are more likely to be
tired, sick and have self-
esteem issues. Whether we
struggle with extra pounds or
not, we know that exercise
helps keep us healthy and at
peak performance levels.
One of the easiest and best
ways to exercise with your
child is to take regularly
scheduled walks together.
After-dinner walks can relax
and rejuvenate at the same
time. A short jaunt around the
neighborhood can wake up
the brain for those nights
when homework awaits. It
may take some persuading to
get older children to walk
with you. Once they try it for a
while, they will appreciate the
way it makes them feel, both
physically and emotionally.
Improve relationships
Walking together also gives
you an opportunity to talk
with and listen to your child
without the distractions of TV
etc. Listening to others is the
best way to demonstrate love
for them and improve your
relationships. It is a good idea,
though, to be careful not to
force the conversation. You
can try these conversation
starters (suggestions from
author Dan Millman's guide
to daily life): talk about some-
thing you feel grateful for,
something that generates
wonder, awe, or appreciation,
something you're looking for-
ward to, or something that
helps put a particular prob-
lem into perspective.
Remember that being sen-
sitive to your child's need to
share, or to just walk beside
you silently, will ensure better
communication in the long
run. Your communication
with your child serves as an
example to your child of how
to communicate effectively
with others.
Kindness

kindness also improves rela-
tionships. This requires that
you be alert to opportunities to
discuss how you have ob-
served kindness in others and
to teach your child how to be
kind. Tell your child that when
another child is being picked
on at school, not to participate
and to make an extra effort to
say something or do some-
thing nice for that child.
Lear to deal with stress
Children experience stress
and need to learn good strate-
gies to help them deal with
stressful unhealthy feelings,
too. Exercise (such as walk-
ing) is a known stress reducer,
but there are other ways you
can experience and teach
calmness.
Help your child and your-
self develop a daily habit of
pausing to appreciate the
wonder and beauty in nature.
It is all around us. Locate and
visit an especially beautiful
place, often. Perhaps the
beach or a favorite park can
become your special place.
Talk about how good it makes
you feel to be there. Suggest to
your child that when he is
stressed, due to pressure of an
upcoming project, deadline
or test, he should think about
his feelings when he is in that
special place. When relaxed,
they tend to feel more confi-
dent resulting in better
performance.
Experts tell us that children
learn best by example and by
doing. Participating in the
goal-oriented, self-improve-
ment tradition of making
New Year's resolutions with
your child, will enhance both
of your lives.

At 11 a.m. last Monday,
Danielle Ferrero got ready to
have her hair done for her
wedding, which was held at
the Charlotte County Justice
Center.
This time in January, Fer-
rero won't have time to have
her hair to be done she will
be busy training fellow sol-
diers about chemical equip-
ment, fitting their protective
masks and gear, and in charge
of her company's weapons
and ammo.
Ferrero is a 22-year-old
Punta Gorda resident, an E-4
Army chemical specialist, and
her company is scheduled to
leave for their first tour of
duty in Iraq on Jan. 25. They
will be stationed there for 12
to 18 months.
Ferrero's fiance Eric Ash-
burn, also 22 and of Punta
Gorda, is currently training at
Fort Jackson, S.C.
Ferrero says that there is an
85 percent chance that he too
will be starting his first tour of
Iraq soon after completing
training in February, but they
wanted to be married first.
"It is last-minute," said
Ferrero about the wedding. "I
didn't think we would both
have leave at the same time."
The two are sweethearts
from their time at Charlotte
High School and have been
together for four years.
Ferrero and Ashburn got
engaged three months ago.
but when Ferrero was notified
in November about her being
sent to Iraq in Jqnuary, they
moved the wedding up.
"He (Ashburn) is training,
and usually when (in) train-
ing you don't get leave," she
explained.
Ashburn and Ferrero were
fortunate to take leave at the
same time. They both arrived
home on Dec. 21, and both
left for their bases Jan. 3.
"I am so ready," she said


happily.
Both Ferrero and Ashburn
were dressed in their dress-
green uniforms, and stood
with each other in the mar-
riage licensing office prep-
ping for the ceremony with
their parents.
It had been four months
since the two had seen each
other before taking leave, and
after Jan. 3, it will be much
longer before the newlyweds
will have a chance to be to-
gether.
"It will be a year and a


half," said Ferrero. "It could be
longer (ifAshburn is sent'i."
Forrero admitted that go-
ing to Iraq is scary, but she is
ready to go fight for her coun-
try.
"If you aren't scared you're
crazy," she said. "We are well-
trained that's my job."
Ferrero and Ashburn were
officially marriedby judge at
2 p.m.

Q 1 Vulnerable, you hold:
S Q 5 10 8 5 4 o KQ95 Q76
Partner opens the bidding with one
diamond. What do you respond?
A A really easy one to start off the
new year. Unless you want to risk the
possibility of missing a 4-4 fit in
your major, respond one heart despite
the quality of your suit. One no
trump would be our second choice,
with a diamond raise a distant third.
Q 2 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
410973 3 AJ865 0 95 443
Partner opens the bidding with one no
trump. What do you respond?
A If you try Stayman and partner
responds in major, you are fine
because you can pass. But what if
partner denies a major by responding
two diamonds' Now, a bid of two
hearts by you would be invitational,
and you are not strong enough to
invite game. Bid two hearts or, if
you play transfer bids, transfer to
hearts and then pass.
Q 3 East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:
4J85 v4 o K1065 *Q9854
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 10 ?
What do you bid now?
A That depends on your methods.
If you play that a jump raise in com-
petition is preemptive, this holding is
perfect for three clubs. If you play
that as strong, all you can do is bid
two clubs and see what develops.
Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH EAST
10 34* ?
*preemptive
What action do you take?
A You do not have much.
However, you do have five-card sup-
port for partner's major, a king and a
singleton, and it seems that some
action is indicated. Bid three hearts.
Partner should bear in mind that
you're bidding under pressure.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, you hold:
SK 8 6 2 K92 K1092 4 84
Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?
A Your three prime cards make
your hand worth more than its point
count so, if you play limit jump rais-
es, we suggest you bid three spades.
If not, you have to content yourself
with a slight underbid and make a
raise to two spades.
Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
4 10 76432 0 J OJ984 4 A10
The bidding has proceeded:

What do you bid now?
A You have the perfect hand for a
jump to four spades: long trumps, a
singleton and not much in the way of
defense. We can see no reason not to
bid it. After an overcall, the jump
shows distributional values with not
much in the way of high cards.

Ten tips that will alter your life


BY DR. KATHLEEN HALL
GUEST CORRESPONDENT


Are you overworked, over-
booked and overwhelmed?
Don't panic, with a few
simple changes you can
make a huge difference in
your life.
Here are 10 tips that will
not only reduce stress but will
allow you to find the extraor-
dinary meaning in everyday
activities.
1. Stress reduction in a
minute. Studies show that
during the day, as little as five
minutes of meditation, deep
breathing and yoga can lower
blood pressure, release heal-
ing hormones, increase cre-
ativity and production and
help your ability to handle
stressful situations.


Cholesterol screening.
Kmart of Venice, 1687 South
U.S. 41 Bypass, holds choles-
terol screenings Jan. 5, 10
a.m.-5 p.m.. Call 493-4827.
SHHH
Dr. Harvey Abrams, chief
audiologist at theVA. Medical
Center in Bay Pines, is guest
speaker Jan. 7 at the Self Help
for Hard of Hearing People's
meeting at 1 p.m. at the
Cultural Center of Charlotte


2. Exercise at least 30 min-
utes every other day. Walk at
lunch, set a treadmill up in
your TV room. Take up Pi-
lates. Exercise lowers your
risk of stroke, diabetes, arthri-
tis, cancer, heart disease and
osteoporosis.
3. Laugh as often as possi-
ble. Laughter releases endor-
phins, the body's natural pain
killers. Laughter lowers blood
pressure, reduces stress hor-
mones and boosts your im-
mune function.
4. Play. Playfulness in-
creases creativity and increas-
es disease-fighting immune
cells.
5. Pay attention. Become
aware of emotions (stressors
and calming forces) and how
these affect your choices,
relationships, home life and

work.
6. Eat breakfast. People
who eat breakfast consume
less fat and have a higher
intake of essential vitamins
and minerals, resulting in
lower serum cholesterol and
a lower heart attack risk.
7. Get a pet. Studies show
that owning a pet can help
reduce blood pressure. Emo-
tional life savers, pets help
people experience intimacy
and deal with changes in their
lives.
8. You need a friend.
Friendship is not a luxury, but
is essential to work-life bal-
ance and your health. Studies
show isolation decreases
immune functioning.
9. Maintain an attitude of
gratitude. 'It's impossible to

stress at the same time.
Studies tell us daily gratitude
exercises result in higher lev-
els of alertness, enthusiasm,
determination, optimism and
energy.
10. Altruism and philan-
thropy. Altruism neutralizes
negative emotions and makes
people feel stronger and,
more energetic. It counters
the harmful effects of stress.

WFDNFSDAY. JAN. 5. 2005


MILLER from page 1B
ways, we had less informa-
tion than everyone else in the
world. We didn't have live
television at first," he said.
"However, we knew what was
happening because the presi-
dent was in telephone con-
tact with Washington. His
people kept coming back and
giving us reports. Around 11
a.m., the president called us
into his office and gave us
another update on the terror-
ist attacks."
A National Journal article
said Miller had the presence
of mind during the flight to
scribble notes on paper he
found on the plane. When
asked if I could see them, he
retrieved them from another
room. After reading them
carefully, he handed them to
me and later made me a copy.
He said the notes hadn't been
published.
Miller also handed me a
framed color photograph
taken at the conclusion of his
meeting on the plane with
President Bush. In the photo,
the president is shaking
hands with Miller and a TV
monitor in the background
shows the World Trade Center
collapsing.
The photo is Miller's fav-
orite from his time in Con-
gress for obvious reasons.
"It took a long time before
they sent it to me," he said.
Eventually, Air Force One
landed at Barksdale Air Force
Base in Louisiana where
Miller finally was able to call
his wife around 1:30 p.m.
Miller, Putnam and other
White House staffers then
boarded another plane and
flew back to Washington.
While Sept. 11 frightened
the world, the Millers had
another tense time a month
later when their son, Daniel,
had major surgery a liver
transplant at Mount Sanai
Hospital in NewYork City. The
donor was his sister, Kathryn.
The operation was a suc-
cess and ended months of
worry by Dan and Glenda
about their two children. Dan


had a setback a year later but
both he and Kathryn are fine
now. When pressed, Miller
admitted that he was the first
volunteer as a donor.
"I passed all the tests until
they found out I was born
with half a liver. It doesn't
affect me, but it ruled me out
as a donor." He said. "Kathryn
was our hero."
Until he went to Congress
in 1993, Miller never ran for
office.
"I was naive when I first
arrived and felt like a potted
plant," he said.
He was surprised by the
partisanship he saw from
both sides. Since then he
thinks it has become even
worse. In his SILL lecture,
Miller will explain how Con-
gress got into this situation
and offer some thoughts on
improving it.
"It's a bigger challenge now
because there are fewer peo-
ple in the middle," he said.
Don't be surprised if Miller
also brings up the current
budget deficit.
"I got into politics because
I was frustrated by govern-
ment spending," he said. "It
was satisfying that we built up
a surplus but I'm very disap-
pointed by how the deficit
came back even worse than
before.
"There's no question the
events of 9/11 threw us into
an economic recession for a
while. And the whole cost of
homeland security and the
war in Iraq and Afghanistan
have added to it. But we've
also expanded entitlements
more. It's so easy to spend in
Washington."
Which of his accomplish-
ments in Congress is Miller
most proud of?
"In Congress I was 1/435th
of half of one third of the gov-
ernment. Can one person
make a difference? Only if
there are enough 'ones' in-
volved. It takes a majority
vote in the House, 60 votes in
the Senate, and the president
has to sign the legislation. So,
being part of the process for
such things as welfare reform


and control of spending is
what I'm proud of even
though I didn't write the legis-
lation."
Miller is well known for a
long fight, which he eventual-
ly lost, against subsidies to
the sugar industry.
"It isn't just sugar," he said,
"it's all corporate welfare. You
could pick peanuts or the
dairy program there are
lots of federal subsidy pro-
grams that are bad."
Miller also made a name
for himself in the area of
extradition when he helped
bring back from Mexico the
man accused of murdering a
Sarasota woman, Sheila Bel-
lush, in 1997. Because of his
success with that case, other
people trying to get criminals
extradited to the U.S. (one
fugitive was in France, anoth-
er in India) went to Miller for
help with equally good re-
sults.
Now that he's been away
from Congress, does he miss
it?
"Yes, I miss it, but it was the
right time to move on. I miss
the exciting opportunity to
help form the policy of our
country, but I have no regret
about my decision to leave.
Otherwise you stay and stay
and stay. I had a life before
Congress and I have a life
after Congress."
Have you ruled out going
back into politics?
"Right."
After leaving Washington,
the Millers bought a summer
vacation home on a golf
course in Highlands, N.C.,
where they enjoy the out-
doors with friends from Flor-
ida and elsewhere.
"I play at golf, get mad at it,
quit and get back in it again,"
he said.
A year ago, Miller spent a
semester as a fellow at the
John E Kennedy School of
Government at Harvard Uni-
versity where he led a study
group of undergraduate stu-
dents about the workings of
Congress.
"The purpose is to encour-
age young people to get


involved in public service," he
said. "I took a group of stu-
dents to Washington, D.C.,
and spent the day in Con-
gress. I also brought people
from Washington up to Har-
vard."
One of Miller's guests was
Porter Goss.
"The policy wonks at Har-
vard were excited to see Goss
because he was head of the
Intelligence Committee then.
He's now head of the CIA."
Miller and Goss are good
friends. "He was my mentor
and represented Sarasota
County before I got elected."
At Harvard, Miller said he
was the "token Republican."
"The faculty is a very liber-
al group and that's true at
most universities across the
country," he said. "What sur-
prised me is that the student
body is more a cross-section
of America than the faculty.
The oldest college Republi-
can club in the nation is at
Harvard."
In August, Miller was in
Ukraine for a week as an offi-
cial observer for the country's
now-disputed presidential
election. He was part of a del-
egation of former members of
Congress and former mem-
bers of the European Parlia-
ment.
"There were seven of us,"
he said. "We went to Kiev and
rural areas south of Kiev and
met with local government
officials, election people and
the news media. We tried to
promote the idea of fair and
free elections. We said if you
don't have them you will have
consequences. And that's
what we are seeing today.
"The problem is that 40
percent of the people are Rus-
sian and speak Russian and
60 percent are Ukranian and
speak Ukranian. That's a
bridge that is going to be diffi-
cult to cross. If you're Russian
and have been in power all
these decades, you don't want
to give it up. I don't think we'll
know where this is. going for
months."
Problems of another type
are likely to come up at the


new Manasota Institute of
Public Policy and Leadership
at the Sarasota campus of the
University of South Florida.
Miller is chair of its advisory
group.
"We're still in the formative
stage and are looking for a
full-time person to direct the
program," he said.
Starting Jan. 10, Miller will
begin teaching a course on
"Public Policy" for 15 weeks
on Monday, 6-8:50 p.m., at
USF's Sarasota campus. Se-
niors can audit the course for
free, he said.


When Miller retired from
Congress, he received acco-
lades from many quarters -
even from some members of
the Democratic Party. Words
such as humble, friendly,
unpretentious, relaxed, well-
informed, statesman and in-
tegrity were used to describe
him.
So what's Dan Miller really
like?
All of the above. A nice guy.

COOL from page 8B


theater is dark on Monday
nights.
"Zorba" offers a timeless
message of a will to peace that
transcends forgiveness and
organized religion. Alexis Zor-
ba (played by Tom Yowarski),
a Greek workman, is the sub-
ject of a story of repudiation
of war and a plea to love. This
is the constant lesson of
Zorba who knows that the
world, like himself, is flawed
and that it is of little benefit to
pass judgment on other peo-
ple for faults we share.
The book adapted by Joe
Stein and the score by Kander
& Ebb is riveting and engag-
ing. The twists and turns of
the plot will have the same
effect as a page turner novel.
The cast includes Steve
and Diane Dawson as Niko
and Narrator, Betty Robinson
as Hortense, Kellie Cordes as
the widow, Cliff Roles as
Maolakas and Peter Lykiar-
dopoulo as Mavrodani.

pear as Ruth, the elder sister
with ambitions to become a
newspaper woman and Anne
Marie Nestor will have the

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST



Happy


New Year
I am sure by now you are
up each morning walking sev-
eral miles. You are eating sal-
ads for lunch, taking more
time for yourself and you've
lost several pounds. You've
also started taking a class after
vowing to learn something
new this year. Three cheers
for you in keeping all your
NewYear's resolutions.
If you are interested in
working to help Venice be-
come even a better place,
there are many organizations
you can join or support.
Nancy Fawcett and The
Friends of the Venice Sym-
phony are sponsoring an op-
portunity for you to make
bears. On Jan. 29, Jan. 30, Feb.
5 and Feb. 6 you can work
with Ann Inman and Steve
Schutt to create cute cuddly
friends for yourself or some-
one you love.
Classes will be held at the
Venice-Nokomis United Meth-
odist Church Fellowship Hall,
208 Palm Ave. Call Nancy at
4889-2072 for information or
e-mail at Nnisu@aol.com. Reg-
istration deadline is Jan. 16.
S******
The Firebug Design Glass
Studio at Suite D .in Hamilton
Square in Venice offers classes
and workshops for adults and
children. Call 480-0700 for in-
formation or stop in for a class
schedule.
"No Sex, Please, We're Brit-
ish" opens Jan. 11 at he Venice
Little Theatre. It is described
as a clean play about sex and
how the British avoid it. Call
488-1115 for ticket informa-
tion.
Venice resident Bill Fams-
worth is the featured artist in
the Venice Little Theatre Gal-
lery during this production.
Venice Art Center volunteer
Patti Jones always makes sure
the art shows are spectacular.

Mark your calendars for
Jan. 28, 29 and 30. The Mystic
Eagle Pow Wow returns for its
third year at Oscar Scherer
State Park. This is a must do
event.

The Pregnancy Care Center
of Venice is blessed to have
women from the Catholic
Council of Women at Epip-
hany Cathedral in its corner.
The group recently held a
tea and a baby shower to col-
lect much needed baby arti-
cles for the center. The women
get a huge bravo from me. The
gifts were beautiful. Lorraine
Doyle is the president of the
Catholic Council of Women
and always makes sure each
event is organized.
Ruth McGinnis is president
of the Venice Pregnancy Care
Center. Phone her at 485-1776
for information and to volun-
teer and donate.

The special person of this
week is Ernie Skinner. This
nice manr serves on many
boards in Venice actively. Em-
ie is a roll-up-your-sleeves-
and-get-the-job-done kind of
guy. If you attend any recep-
tions at the Venice Art Center
or the chamber of commerce,
you will be sure to see Ernie
serving drinks and staying
long after the event is done
to help with the clean up. You
will also see him working in
the Venice Sertoma booths at
festivals. Ernie's day seems to
be a little longer than 24 hours
and he spends a lot of that
time helping others.


SErnie is one of the people
who helps make Venice spe-
cial.


Linda Matteson turns ordinary leaves into precious metal clay
masterpieces at Firebug Designs Glass Studio.


S- "*-- "" '' '. Pina Pergolizzi carries a pot of
:- tea to her table at the
-- Epiphany Cathedral Parish
Jeanette Mahoney, chair of the Epiphany Cathedral Council of Hall. Pina helped make the
Catholic Women's tea, pours a spot of tea at the afternoon baby shower to benefit the
event. Pregnancy Care Center fun.


This sea of brand new bicycles parked outside the new Moose Lodge waited for boys and girls
at their annual bike giveaway before Christmas. Each bike went to a child living in Venice that
was recommended by the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities and Foster Parents.


Liana Martin demonstrates the art of making glass beads at
the Firebug Designs Glass Studio in Hamilton Square.


Al Kerstien, Doug Reimann and Bob Davis wait to perform with
the Venice Concert Band.


EmP It p- | I ji
Les Gowan, Dick Thierry and Lloyd Eggers perform with the
Venice Concert Band. They take their positions in the balcony
of the First Baptist Church of Venice to make the music sounds
more like surround sound.


Ernie Skinner is one of the
volunteers at the Venice Art
Center. Ernie always makes
sure everyone has something
tasty to drink at the recep-
tions and fund-raisers the
organization sponsors.

baby things donated for the Venice Area Pregnancy Care Center.


When it comes to setting a
tea, Truly Delicious Catering

at the Venice Art Center was
picture perfect. For informa-
tion about their catering, call
488-8885.


Stacy Gorman and Melva Fisher sell items for the Friends of
the Venice Symphony at a recent concert. The group works to
raise money for the Venice Symphony outreach programs.

Dellicato. They are available to entertain at your next event.
Call 497-7692 for information. This duo entertained at the
Venice Art Center Vict6rian Tea.
