Sewage dumped at airport property
I


City manager doubts honesty of employee report
and will hire a private investigator.


Cool hall
Thanks to them, youth
will be served.


BY J J.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

City Manager Martn Black
no longer wonders whether
sewage has been dumped at
Venice Municipal Airport.
Black wants to know for
how long and how much was
dumped, as well as who au-
thorized the actions.
Tuesday's announcement
comes on the heels of a Web
site's accusations city workers
have dumped raw sewage on
airport grounds for years.
Black ordered the workers
quoted in the online story to


file a report with him, and that
memo has caused the city
manager to become even
more concerned.
"I'll be honest. 1 don't think
their memorandum is forth-
right enough," Black said. "It
raises even more questions. ...
It's not a question of identify-
ing if it happened. It's now
how frequently and to what
extent."
Black gave city council
members an update during
their regular meeting Tuesday.
He also revealed that a private
investigator will be hired to
determine how much sewage


was dumped, who was re-
sponsible and whether any
discipline of current employ-
ees is needed.
Sarasota County Health
Department will assist with
the investigation to deter-
mine if there is any risk to res-
idents.
"It's not clear there's any
specific health risk," Black
said. "There's not enough
information in any direction,
yes or no.

No dumping today
lohn Parten, author of the
Web site VeniceFlorida.com,
first reported that sewage has
been dumped on Venice
Municipal Airport property
by city workers.


He was surprised the city
manager had taken such swift
action only a week after start-
ing an investigation into
Parten's story. The story was
first published Dec. 2-4.
"Holy crap. That's amaz-
ing," said Patten, after hearing
'Black's announcement.
The city manager's week-
long review has determined
the dumping stopped some-
time around 2001 and began
in the late 1990s. None of this
is clear, however, and the
memo from Dave Adinolfi
and John Newborn, both
supervisors in the utilities
department, does little to
clear it up.
Their memo says that to

Janet Hannah is excited.
Her son Christian is attending
a regular school this year after
graduating from The Florida


Center for Child and Family
Development.
"This is a time of transition
for Christian and our family,"
said Hannah, "but it is also a
time to reflect."
Christian was born with
cerebral palsy. It took six
months to get the pediatri-
cian to agree with her that,
despite appearing normal,
there was something wrong
with her beautiful baby. After
many tests and more months
passing, he was finally diag-
nosed.
At that time, Christian was
attending a day-care center
that accommodated his lack
of development by keeping
him in the nursery section.
By the time Christian was
1-1/2,years old, he was still in
the nursery at day care.
"At that point, maybe final-
ly coming out of my denial
that this was a lifetime dis-
ability," Janet said, "I obtained

After the inaugural Jan. 21

be charged $10 annual
-nmembership fee or $2 per
visit. For now, kids can come
into the center free of charge.
-"The facility will be a place
kids can call their own," said
,.executive director Ed Eagen.
., "It will have the necessary
...professional guidance, and
,-;provide adult oversight to
,young adults in the appropri-
,ate use of our facility."
Ownership
SCYAC wanted to provide
-,-i n alternative to youth walk-
ming the streets or malls and
l..hanging out at parentless resi-
,.,dences. The center has the
backing of the Sarasota Coa-
lition on Substance Abuse, a
longtime advocate for the


center.
"A group of citizens came
together around the need, to
provide this center," said
Shewman. The group grew
and waned in numbers as the
search for financial support
and an appropriate building
drew interest.
Hundreds of middle school
and high school kids were
interviewed. Armed with that
information, center staff be-
gan pulling together services
and programs that would
appeal to youth.
"Ownership is crucial," said'
Eagen. "Young people need
to have ownership in the pro-
grams and services or it
won't fly."

Class act
Shewman, a detox and
substance abuse, therapist by
trade, is'president of the
SCYAC board, which consists
of nine adult members and


nine young adults. Adult
members serve three-year
terms, while young adults
serve revolving, single-year
-terms. -
"We can get kids off drugs
and through the detox
phase," said Shewman. "But
where do they go after that? If
troubled teens go back into
the same neighborhood with
the same friends, they will
end up back in the same
dilemma. If you can't go back,
you can come here. This is a
safe place."
Some of the programs that
will be offered: socialization
skills (peer building, group
sessions, board games); cop-
ing skills (assertiveness train-
ing, parenting classes, stress
management, drug preven-
,tion); life skills (interpersonal
communication, anger man-
agement, positive health be-
havior); and skill development
(auto maintenance, audio-
visual, cafe training, business
management, acting classes,
tutoring).
Youth ministers have been
invited to participate in the
center's activities.
The amenities
The facility includes a car-
pet-covered main room with
three pool tables, two Foos-
ball tables, two TV-watching
areas and arcade machines.
On the walls of the cav-
ernous buildingare sign-up
sheets that provide teenagers
with options on how to partic-
ipate arid take advantage of
the center.
- A separate area in the back
of the building will house
the auto maintenance room
where kids can learn basics of
maintenance and repair or
snazz up their cars with a fresh
new paint job.
On the second floor is a
computer room that will pro-
vide Internet access and serve
as a play station for Nintendo


and other games. There is a
small crafts room. Tucked in-
to a private corridor is a coun-
seling area.
Want to help?
The center is looking for
additional furniture and fi-
nancial donations, as well as
volunteers who can come in
and teach golf or any other
skills oraddress any of the
health and safety issues
young people need to suc-
ceed in life, said Shewman.
An added benefit, said
Shewman, is its 501(c) (3) sta-
tus, which allows people to
donate items or time and
then deduct it from their
taxes.
"I hope we see a good
turnout. Right now most of
the youth services are geared
toward the Sarasota area.
South County desperately
needs a place where young
adults can 'congregate and
receive help in a positive, car-
ing setting," said Shewman.
"The main purpose of the
drop-in center," he said, "is to
provide a comfortable and
accepting place for young
adults who are not inclined
to become involved in orga-
nized sports, school clubs or
the like, and who may be in
danger of falling behind or out
of school without some level
of intervention. We hope that
kids from all walks of life will
come in and mix with each
other."
"Most kids have trouble ex-
perimenting," he said. "They
need a safe place where there
is acceptance and guidance
with experimentation "
"Youth can come in and
try their hand at singing, or
acting on stage, or painting
in a welcoming environment
without being cut down by
other kids," added Eagen. "No
negativity. If kids come in
here who are negative on a
regular basis, they will be

The center's shoestring
budget consists of funding for
two employees, leasing the
property and minor operat-
ing expenses. A private donor
who wishes to remain anony-
mous funded the start-up
costs. She asked that some-
how her daughter, who was
killed by a drunk driver, be
memorializ-ed at the center.
Food and drinks will be
served from Carey's Cafe.
"We hope to receive coun-
ty and state funding in the fu-
ture," said Eagen, who is busy
working on numerous grants.
The 12,000-square-foot
building, which used to be
occupied by The Last Straw
Furniture Warehouse, is cur-
rently only half occupied by
SCYAC. The other half serves
as the FELMA staging center


in South County, at least for
another two months. When
FEMA moves out, the build-
ing will be transformed into
a stage and dance floor for
weekly events.
"We think the center will
fill a niche in this commun-
ity," said Eagen. "There is a
critical need for a refuge from
the influence of drugs a
place where our young adults
can be diverted fr6m a down-
ward spiral of anti-social
behaviors.
"We needed ,a center
where youth would have'the
space to find out who they
are, what they may be inter-
ested in and what it takes to
become a positive, successful
and contributing adult in
society."

Mayor Dean Calamaras, left, listens to Web journalist John Patten respond after the mayor said
his site has turned into Cyberr stalking." Patten first reported that some type of sewage was
dumped at Venice Municipal Airport.


Patten accused of Cyberr harassment"
:and "stalking" during council meeting, and
SCalamaras wants to stop it.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Mayor Dean Calamaras
didn't have a problem with
online reporter John Patten
breaking the story that some-
thing with sewage on it was
dumped at the airport.
,Calamaras is mad Patten
reported that the mayor "de-
liberately" covered it up, and
Calamaras took at least 15
minutes to criticize Patten's
reporting.


"We don't know what went
on out at the airport, except
for those (employees) report-
ing back on it, and then their
changing their stories," Cala-
maras said.
"But Mr. Patten has taken
this issue and ramped it up ....
This has really got to stop, and
I'm going to stop it. And if it
takes a lawsuit, then I will."
Many of the accusations
from the mayor were fueled by
a Florida Ethics Commission
report that failed to find prob-.


able cause in a complaint filed
by Venice resident Gary
Anderson in 2003 during the
election season, when Gary
Anderson was running for a
council seat.
Gary Anderson was defeat-
ed in 2003 and again in 2004
while. running for mayor.
Another set of Ethics Com-
mission complaints have been
filed this year.
Council asked the city
attorney to investigate wheth-
er Gary Anderson can be sued
to recover the almost $20,000
in legal costs city staff spent
defending themselves to the
state commission. The charter
requires those legal fees be


reimbursed by the city if an
employee or elected official is
found innocent.
With Calamaras abstaining
from the vote, council unani-
mously asked City Attorney
Bob Anderson no relation
- to review if it could sue
Gary Anderson to recover
those legal fees.
Patten defended himself
during his allotted five min-
utes, which came at the end
of a five-and-a-half hour
meeting. He pointed to how
council led by the mayor--
ignored warnings years ago
from employee Troy Evans,
who eventually sued the city
for harassment.
Venice settled and paid
Evans $25,000 as part of an
$81,500 settlement.
"No one listened," Patten
said. "Lo'and behold, he
wound up suing and received
$25,000."
Patten did not directly
address the mayor's accusa-
tions of harassment and
stalking by his Web site,
veniceflorida.com. Deadlines
prevented post-meeting
interviews with Patten or
council members. .
Citizen boards saved
The ax did not fall on four
citizen boards Tuesday night.
Council members backed
off a recommendation by City


Manager Marty Black to dis-
solve the Youth Advisory,
Recreation and Parks
Advisory, Senior Living
Committee and the
Accessibility Advisory boards.
Much of this came follow-
ing complaints the new
"super committee," as parks
board members called it,
would fail to address all the
issues adequately. Black and
the board review report sug-
gest combining the 28 volun-
teers into one board of 11
members, called Venice
Lifestyles Committee, to han-
dle those topics.
"These committees form
the very fabric of our govern-
ment," Vice Mayor John
Moore said. "I don't like to see
any of them eliminated, if you
don't have to."
Council advised the city
manager's office to see if
these four boards simply
meet too often, and if any
"tweaking" can be done, in
the words of council member
RickTacy.
For other boards under
review:
Municipal Code Board -
staff will draw up ordinances
giving officers the power to
issue tickets for code viola-
tors.
AirportAdvisory Board -
reconfigure seven-member
board and require four with


aviation experience and four
as Venice residents.
Public Art Council -
would report directly to city
manager to review public art
displays for appropriateness.
Several other citizen board
issues also are- being
reviewed. All changes must
come before city council fdr a
vote once again in order to
take effect.

Police angry about contract offers


FOP unhappy with salary raises
and having to pay for health insurance
in latest contracts offerings.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


The sidewalk in front of
Venice City Hall was packed
with marching police officers
carrying signs accusing the
city of robbing them during
the last set of contract negoti-
ations.
They're not about to let that
happen again, j

At least 30 police officers and
supporters marched on the
sidewalk in front of Venice
City Hall.


"We need the community's
support," said Paul Murphy,
Fraternal Order of Police staff
representative. "We're .there
for them. We need them to be
here for us."
Officers and union mem-
bers marched in what they
called an "informational pick-
et" just before and during
Tuesday's regularcity council
meeting.
Key among their com-
plaints are the rate of salary
increases and having to pay
health insurance. Murphy said
salaries will increase only 9
percent in three years, and
officers will have to pay $40 a
month for individual health
insurance when it used to be
free.
City Manager Marty Black
said all city employees now
must pay health insurance, as
firefighters agreed to in their
contract and all nonbargain-
ing employees already do. The
police' officer and AFSCME
unions are the last two not
paying, and current contract
negotiations have that as a
requirement, according to
Black.


As for pay increases, Black
said the FOP is using outdat-
ed information when it says
how little the city is, offering.
Venice's latest proposal either
equals or exceeds the salary
level of a fifth-year officer
when compared with sheriff's
deputies or police in Sarasota
and North Port, according to
Black's response.
"The materials distrib-
uted (Tuesday) afternoon by
the FOP officers are outdat-
ed and inaccurate and,
unfortunately,.. signal to. me
at this point we are likely to.
find ourselves at an im-
passe," Black said.


SEWAGE from page 1A
their knowledge no raw
sewage or sludge was ever
dumped at the airport.
However, wet material was
stored at the airport site for
drying.
The memorandum con-
firms that, on at least one
occasion, materials con-
taining. sludge and/or
sewage may have been
improperly dried qr dis-
posed of at the airport,"
Black wrote.
Black cannot say who if
any employees will be disci-
plined.
"I won't know until the pri-
Vate investigation goes
through there with its find-
ings," Black said.


EPA investigation
Federal Environmental
Protection Agency criminal
investigators were in Venice
the past week questioning
more employees, many of
them about the airport
dumping allegations.
Investigator Dan Green
would not discuss the details
of the investigation, or when
it would be concluded, when
asked for comment. Green
did admit the EPA has
received all of Pattens infor-
mation about alleged sewage
dumping at the airport.
"We are aware of these
allegations, but beyond that, I
cannot comment on the
investigation," Green said last


week.
Venice has an agreement
with EPA investigators to
cooperate in any way possi-
ble. For example, if a city
employee declines an EPA
questioning request, the city
manager can order that .per-
son to participate, Black said.
City'Attorney Bob Ander-
son is currently in settlement
negotiations with the EPA
concerning potential crimi-
nal charges all arising frbm
the more than two years of
investigation.
Black 'admitted that' a
closed city council meeting,
called a "shade meeting," will

DCF's closing the case due

whether they had girlfriends

that was inappropriate for
small children. I saw children
go inside to use the restroom
without staff monitoring any-
one inside."
Romig responded by say-
ing that some of the letter
rings consistent with many of
the allegations.
"Now, we have teachers
who are loving providers of
child care," Romig said.
"There's a lot I'd like the pub-
lic to know. I'd prefer to wait
until the police finish their
own investigation."
The second letter, accord-
ing to Romig, grabbed at his
heartstrings even more. It

guilt a former ECC parent
endured.
"I am very glad to hear Joy
finally got what she deserved.
My son was in her class .... It
took me four years to get over
how badly she treated him
and to stop blaming myself
for not understanding that
something was wrong and
putting my son through what
he went through in her class."
The writer explained, "He
cried in the morning and he
cried when I tucked him in at
night and he even started to
sleep with me and my hus-
band and crie (sic) during the
night. He begged us not to
take him back to her class. I
thought my son was just

Calamaras also said that
very few of the applicants had
governmental experience.
But according to the appli-
cations, 25 out of 43 had at
least eight years of govern-
ment experience in financing
or accounting. There also
were 24 people with experi-
ence creating or maintaining
government budgets. ,
None of the 43 applicants
met all 18 criteria. Lounsbury
came the closest, getting
credit for every category
except for the five that involve
college degrees and accredi-
tation.


has brought it all back for me
and I have lost sleep over it
again. I will probably never,
ever, ever forgive myself for
not listening to my son."
Romig's response was that
any child who has been
harmed is a tragedy.
"My heart is heavy with
sadness to hear such pain
from families," he said. "A lot
of parents are concerned. The
nature of what you told me is
consistent."
A new day
ECC, Romig said, is mov-
ing forward. Relicensing has
been completed.
The facility, he said, is in
full compliance with national
regulations.


Another opinion
No date for a decision has
been announced by the
mayor. While the mayor is
responsible for conducting
charter officer searches, final
approval rests with a city
council vote.
Vice Mayor John Moore
was asked if he agreed with
Calamaras' assessment that
most of the applicants lacked

Lounsbury was hired in
1983 at $3.69 an hour as the
finance department's first
full-time secretary. Louns-
bury has held the title of bud-

City council created the
deputy finance director posi-

Lounsbury in that spot. She

Hurdles to make her the per-

ignore, the charter (require-

SORES FROM DENTURES
Even though dentures feel comfortable and there are no apparent
problems, denture wearers should still have an annual dental
examination. It takes a dentist only a few minutes to examine the oral
tissue for changes that could indicate developing problems. Denture
wearers should be particularly wary of a painless abrasion in the
mouth. This is one of the reasons that periodic dental examinations are
recommended. A denture wearer should regularly feel around his or
her mouth, particularly under the tongue, to detect breaks in the tissue
or to findpainless "ulcers.".
Ordinary sores caused by the pressure and movement of dentures heal
in 10 to 14 days after adjustment of the denture by the dentist. If a sore
persists despite repeated relief of the denture base, the problem may
be more serious. The constant irritation of a denture, particularly under
the tongue, could be dangerous. Suspicious areas should be examined
by your dentist promptly.

LANDSCAPING & GARDENING
We are having such nice weather its hard to believe that it's winter. Our gardens
are turning out to be very colorful for the winter. Geraniums are coming into
very nice colors as well as the petunias are looking very good. We currently have
a lot of color in the nursery at this time. If you have been contemplating planting
a garden for the winter now is the time to do so.
If you are wondering about your fruit trees loosing their leaves, everyone is
having the same problem. This is caused by cold winds and weather we had
Christmas Eve when the weather front came through and brought all that rain.
We are proud of the rain but the cold weather accompanying the front did some
damage to not only citrus, but also Hibiscus, and other plants of a tender nature.
Now is the time to fertilize your citrus so do so and water the fertilizer in. We
have truly had a rough year with the winds blowing out of thq west
from the hurricanes.
We have a new shipment of grass plugs in at this time. If you are
4 wanting to fill in those bare areas you can do so now. Don't forget your
pre-emergence for the crabgrass that is in your lawn. We suggest to use
it at least 3 or 4 times a year. If you can kill the seed you then can get rid WINNER
of the pesky grassy weed.
We at DUKE GARDEN CENTER are dedicated to helping you with
*^"'^W your problems and doing it in the right way. Call or come in so that Q)

Philippians 1:3

The memory of the
righteous will be a
blessing.
Proverbs 10:7

Words of Comfort
The Lord is my shepherd- I shall not want.
He maketh me to ,e down in green
pastures: he,leadeti mme reside ire siill
waters._
He restoreth my soul he leadeih me in
the paths of righteousness for his
name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of
the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me.
Thou prepares a -
table before me in ,
the presence of mine
enemies: thou .

runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
me all the days of my-life: and I Will dwell

OUR VIEW


A tale of two positions


one open, one...?


he city of Venice is looking for a new
finance director, and it appears Joanne
Lounsbury, who is filling the position on
a temporary basis, is the odds-on favorite to
be named to the post.
Tuesday city council filled a vacancy on
the planning commission created by the
expiration of commissioner Greg Shanika's
term by appointing former council member
Jim Myers to the board.
Other than in a very broad sense the two
matters would appear to be unrelated, but
the process of filling them gives cause for
concern.
When longtime Finance Director Mike
McPhail retired last year, Lounsbury was his
assistant. A new finance director was ap-
pointed after a search, but resigned just
weeks later citing unspecified family reasons.
(As we reported, he had never even quit the
job that he left when he came here.)
The position has been open for months,
with Lounsbury filling in ably, as far as we


can tell. And it has been advertised; 43 peo-
ple, including Lounsbury, applied for it.
The ad has been pulled, however, and the
search appears to have been concluded, with'
Lounsbury as the leading candidate. Mayor
Dean Calamaras told us last week none of the
applicants was as qualified as the person who
replaced McPhail.
But that isn't correct.
Most of the candidates have a college de-
gree in finance or accounting, a minimum
city requirement Lounsbury lacks. Nearly
half have an advanced degree; nine are CPAs.
If Lounsbury is to get the'job, the education-
al component of the job standards must be
waived.
Obviously, no one else can duplicate her
knowledge of our city's finances -she's the
only candidate who wouldn't have any learn-
ing curve, and there's something to be said for
that.
But in and of itself that doesn't make her
the best candidate. And for the mayor to


imply no one who applied for the job had at
least equal qualifications just isn't accurate.
We have nothing against Lounsbury, but
it's beginning to look like she has been cho-
sen through a less-than-open or complete
hiring process. It's not in the city's best inter-
ests or hers for her to be appointed in
any way other than at the outcome of a full
and fair competitive review of qualified
applicants of which there seem to be
many.
Which brings us to the planning commis-
sion.
When he left council after three terms
(the maximum he could serve without sit-
ting out for a year), Myers asked the mayor
to name him to a city board; one of his pref-
erences was the planning commission, sec-
ond in power only to council itself and one
of the few that has any decision-making
authority.
SShanika was named to the board to fill the
term of Fred Hammett after he was elected to


council, and that term recently expired. So,
there was an opening; Myers was waiting in
the wings; and presto, a vacancy was filled.
But Shanika was interested in being reap-
pointed and, as a rule being reappointed to a
city board has been a formality. But not this
time.
A former executive at Venice Hospital and
a longtime Venice resident, Shanika has been
one of the tougher votes to get when devel-
opers have presented new construction pro-
posals to the commission. When he was on
council, Myers wasn't known for being tough
on development and growth.
In other words, developers will now see a
friendlier face in the seat Shanika used to
occupy.
City government has been much more
open since Marty Black became city manag-
er almost a year ago. Playing favorites in fill-
ing vacancies, whether it's city employees or
city boards, will only lead us back to a place
we don't think anyone wants to.go.


The love of



money is



the root


ED. MARTIN
COLUMNIST

Council Member John
Simmonds, in a lengthy de-
fense of political action com-
mirtee money in Venice poli-
tics (Gondolier Sun, Jan. 5),
says he does not have time for
a newspaper debate, al-
though this is somewhat be-
lied by the fact that this is his
second such effort lately, sup-
plemerted by a personal e-
mail.
My pleasure (and job) is to
encourage such debate,, be-
causeit usuallyleads tothink-
ing by the citizens. Even if
they do not agree with me,
they are more engaged in the
civic process, which I believe
is essential to the kind of
democracy we have.
SHere are some thoughts for
citizens and Mr. Simmonds to
chewon:
Few people with enough
interest and intelligence to
read this paper do not have
concerns about the role of
1 special interest money in
SAmerican politics. This is not
a liberal or conservative issue,
but is a national and local
concern.
A Sen. John, McCain, a con-
servative Republican, and
Sen. Russ Feingold, a moder-
ate Democrat, have tried val-
iantly, if with too-limited suc-
cess, to stem the flow of what
they feel is a corrupting influ-
ence. Well-respected citizen
organizations like Common
SCause and many others op-
pose the influence of PAC
money on both parties.
My views on the Citizens
for Quality Government PAC,
which Simmonds proudly
claims to have stimulated,
have been echoed by the edi-
torial pages of the daily news-
paper, which said (my recol-
lected words), that "it has out-
lived its usefulness" and
called for the PAC to be dis-
banded.
I have made a modest pro-
posal: that council members
not take contributions from
people with regular and ma-
terial interests that come be-
fore council, the planning
commission, etc.
According to Mr. Sim-


monds, council members
could "finance our own cam-
paigns with our own re-
sources if we decided to do
so." Fine, why not decide to
do so, or accept money only
from citizens not involved in
profit-making ventures need-
ing city approval? Council
members bring on the ap-
pearance of conflict of inter-
es;t 'by heir own actions, not
by citizen comments.
Mr. Simmonds is dead
wrong when he says "no
member of councils active in
selecting candidates to be
supported."
I reported, correctly, that a
current, elected member ar-
ranged a meeting with a pro-
spective candidate who spoke
with him about an interest in
running. The people.intro-
duced were members of the
PAC, including members of
the Boone law firm and Mike
Miller. I believe the meeting
was scheduled the very next
day after the conversation..
As I noted earlier, that is
not a usual public service by
an elected official, and no
,introductions to civic organi-
. zations were arranged. It is an
example of undue influence
and the impact of PAC money.
In recent years I have spo-
ken with three council mem-
bers two active at the time.
and one recently retired -
and one charter officer, who
told me, off the record, that
they felt council and the city
manager were "too close" to
certain people, people who
are the core of the PAC and
who have profit motives
when addressing council.
This problem appears to
be less critical at present;
since two of the council
members most frequently
mentioned in these conversa-
tions have left council and the
city manager has been re-
placed. The point is that con-
cerns about the indepen-
dence of the council seem
historically valid and "fore-
warned is forearmed."
One example of linkage, on
the public record, .deals with
the proposal in the past by
Mike Miller to build a hotel or
similar commercial buildings
on the beach at the site of the
now closed wastewater treat-
ment plant. A sitting council
member at the time, David
Farley, announced that he
wanted to be an investor in
the Miller scheme.
Although Farley said he
would not vote on the matter,
his fellow council members
had to reckon with his obvi-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Separation of church and state is a fiction


Editor:
Help stop the ridiculous lie: There is no truth in the phrase
"separation of church and state.".
They can never be separated, as declared by the U.S.
Supreme Court in 1892: "Our laws and our institutions must
necessarily be based upon the teachings of the redeemer of
Smankind. It is impossible thatit should be otherwise; and in
this sense and to this extent -our civilization and our insti-
tutions are emphatically Christian."
And from DanielWebster in 1821: "If we abide by the princi-
ples taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering -
but if we and our country neglect its instructions and authori-
ty, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm
us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity."
A handful of judges is determined to remove every evidence
of God, morality and faith fromAmerican culture. Are we close
to a judicial oligarchy?
The Constitution charges Congress with the responsibility
to check the courts. It has totally abdicated that duty. We now
have arrogant judiciary, often appointed for life, determined to
make us dance to their tune.
This is no democracy. Our constitution tells the federal gov-
ernment only to "make no law respecting an establishment of
religion." Therefore, no law is broken when the* Ten
Commandments or a creche is erected anywhere on public
land.

No real mystery behind
drug bill shenanigans
Editor:
I wonder if the people wiho
watch TV noticed the ads that
promoted the wonderful ad-
vantages of the newdrug billfor
us seniors. The ad said to call 1-
(800)-MEDICARE. The last cou-
pleweeks before Nov.2 evenArt
Linkletter got into the act.
The ad was paid for by the
United Seniors Association. I'm
a senior and have never heard
of this association and also I
haven't seen this ad since Nov. 2.
I wonder if the pharma-
ceutical industry could be the
United Seniors Association? It
couldn't be dirty politics or
could it? I wonder how many
seniors called 800-MEDI-
CARE? I did and I'm still trying
to figure out the 47 plans.
I just heard on the TV news
that two senators who helped
write the senior drug bill are
leaving office and taking jobs


to lobby government for the
pharmaceutical industry at a
salary of $2 million a year. No
wonder we can't import from
'Canada or negotiate for better
prices with drug companies.

Editor:
:What's going on with Ver-
izon?
My telephone service went
out Thanksgiving Day.:The
earliest repair service avail-
able was the following Tues-
day, between 5 and 7 p.m.
Six days to get phone ser-
vice restored. Absurd. Mine is
not an isolated incident.
When the U.S. Postal Serv-
ice is faster than the tele-
phone service, our world is
upside down.

School board raises always draw attention


GREG GILES
GUEST COLUMNIST

Brand spanking new to
Florida, I was surprised to
learn the Sarasota County
School Board members earn
a salary.


Where I come from -
Alaska, the Last Frontier -
school boards don't receive a
salary. Some receive a small
per-meeting or annual
stipend. Only the Anchorage
School Board, representing a
district with 49,500 students
- the 85th largest district in
the country received any-
thing near the $31,694 paid to
the Sarasota board, some-
where in the $7;000 range.
By. the way, 12 Florida
school districts appear on the
list of 100 largest school dis-
tricts in the country as deter-
mined by enrollment, accord-
ing to the National Center for


Education Statistics.
So, my ears perked up
when I learned the board
voted in December to grant
itself a $1,672 raise. My gosh, I
thought, I bet that draws fire.
From what I can tell, how-
ever, people don't seem to
mind. Of course, you can
count on a few negative let-
ters to the editor. We've come
to expect that.
Could it be the public has
become accustomed to pay-
ing its locally elected officials?
Perhaps they are satisfied
with student oitcoI es and
attribute that at least partly to
the board.


After all, it takes untold
hours of study, meetings,
workshops, training and
more meetings to become
familiar with school gover-
nance issues, hire a good
superintendent and help
point the district in a positive
direction.
I've always been
impressed with the commit-
ment and genuine sincerity of
those who serve on the local
school board.
Having worked at another
state school board associa-
tion as a staffer, I can tell you

LET 'EM HAVE IT DO SENIORS GET TOO MANY BREAKS IN SOCIETY? CALL 2071111.


Law should be the same, whether you're 81 or 18


Double standard? I read with interest the recent article in a
local newspaper about the 82-year-old woman who made an
illegal turn in front of a motorcyclist who then died. She was
charged only with making an illegal turn. A friend of mine
recently had an interesting experience in Bradenton in which
an elderly man hit her daughter's car, totaling it, then fled the
scene of the accident. He was brought back by a witness. When
the police arrived, he denied not only fleeing the scene of the
accident but claimed he was not in an accident and in fact not
even in the area. This despite a very banged-up car. He told the
officer a different story each time he was questioned, was dis-
oriented and stumbling. Clearly he was either drunk or suffer-
ing from dementia. And yet he was charged only with reckless
driving. I have to wonder: If these two drivers were 18 instead
of elderly, would they have had more serious charges pressed
against them?


Get a tune-up. On Thurs-
day morning a big old army
camouflaged truck left the
island going over the North
Bridge.
The smoke from its ex-
haust was horrible. The den-
sity and amount was a signal
of lack of care and danger to
everybody.
If the engine was repaired
to eliminate the smoke, peo-
ple's health would not be
threatened, the air would be
improved and the fuel econo-
my for the truck would be


improved.
No Y. I was surprised to see
that city taxpayers are paying
for city of Venice employee
memberships in the YMCA.
If these employees were
interested in their health they
would have paid for their own
memberships. Some proba-
bly have.
Regardless, the city em-
ployees can pay for their own
memberships.
It appears the taxpayers
are making a contribution to

that board of education
members rarely receive com-
pensation that comes any-
where near covering the
countless hours it takes to. do
the job. (But Florida comes
pretty close.)
School board members, in
particular, suffer hardships
that would scare most people
away from office different
treatment of their children in
school, late-night phone calls
from irate parents and
employees, even boycott of
their business.
In Alaska and around the
country, states suffer from a
lack of folks willing, to run for
the local board of education.
People hear how complex and
time-consuming it is and shy
away. Many a school board
and superintendent spend
nights trying to drum up
potential candidates from the
ranks of advocate parents,
local business owners and the
like.
SPerhaps offering a salary to
board members is a good way
to attract not only candidates,
but quality candidates.
Far and away the biggest
issue facing schools today is
the quality of teachers in the
classroom, and by extension,
the leveltof excellence iniour..
schools. Most education ex-
perts point to poor salaries as
"the single biggest deterrent to
attracting and retaining quali-
ty educators.
There are similar issues
within school boards. A board
member who served decades
ago lamented to me not long
ago about the quality of to-
day's school officials.

"They used to be profes-
sionals and prominent citi-
zens," she said. "Nowadays, it
seems like anyone off the
streets can get elected."
Funny how democracy
works.
* Personally, I'm less con-
cerned with paying board
members a salary or with
their prominence within the
community than I am about
the quality of education being
offered in schools. You can
have a dysfunctional school
board and still have good ed-
ucation occurring in the
classroom, at least in the
short term.
But the reverse isn't true.
No matter how good the
school board, it's the class-
.room experience that will

determine the quality of edu-
cation.
If the Sarasota school sys-
tem were in trouble, I would
be rethinking the issue of
school board member pay. In
the end, if all the kids are
above average (and not just
because Garrison Keillor says
so), it's hard to argue against
the idea of compensating
school board members for
their time and effort. What-
ever works, I say.
The bottom line is Sarasota
County kids seem to be doing
well. You can thank your local
school board members, in
part, for that success.

ous financial interest in the
project. Further, his an-
nouncement suggested that
he and Miller must have dis-
cussed the issue previously.
As it turned out, thousands
of citizens signed petitions
opposing the development
after this column and other
sources called attention to
the issue and raised questions
about it.
Further, citizens and Marty
Black, then planning director,
found that the area had been
designated a park some years
earlier and that development
could occur only if voters
approved changing that. This
was not likely to occur given
the citizen outcry.
The idea quietly died, but
while it was alive some coun-


cil members expressed their
opposition, particularly John
Moore, while others, includ-
ing then-council member Jim
Myers, expressed interest in
various possibilities for devel-
opment.

Balanced scoring leads rout of Bradenton Christian

A cold slap

in the face

There's nothing like a cold
slap in the face to wake and
shake someone up.
Or maybe the faces of the
Venice High wrestlers were
just red frorp embarrassment
after losing their first home
dual of the season last Wed-
nesday against Lemon Bay.
But there is always a silver
lining, even after being on the
wrong end of a big upset.,
"In the long run, it might
be the best thing that could
have happened,' said Indian
wrestling coach Dan Kelly. "I
think we had become com-
placent. It was a wake-up call
for the kids and the coaches."
The next day at practice,
Kelly held a team meeting.
"We talked about what it
means to wrestle a dual
match," he said. "The meet
depends on each other. You
have to wrestle tough. You
can't get pinned."
Venice had six wrestlers
get pinned- against Lemon
Bay. It didn't help that it was
the Indians first dual of the
season.
"We didn't have alot of dual
meet experience," Kelly said.
Another problem against
Lemon Bay was the fact that
several wrestlers did not make
their prescribed weight. That
all changed over the weekend
at Graves Duals in Brandon.
Kelly saw a major improve-
ment as the Indians finished
5-1 and in third place.
Venice defeated Tampa
Chamberlain, the team that
has handed Lemon Bay its
lone loss this season.
"I saw a 180 degree turn-
Saround," Kelly said. "We wres-
tled tough. There were a lot of
close matches."
And now Venice is set to
embark on its second of four
consecutive Wednesdays of
home meets. Charlotte will
be the opposition.
"I hope the fans who came
out to watch us against Lem-
on Bay will give us another
chance," Kelly said. "I felt we
let our fans down by wrestling
so poorly. We're a different
team. We will wrestle well."
Other Wednesday home
matches include Manatee on
Jan. 19 and Sarasota on Jan.
26.

The Venice High girls bas-
ketball team shook off the
blues of last Saturday night's
upset loss at Charlotte in a
hurry.
It was a total team effort
Tuesday night at the Teepee
as the Lady Indians routed
visiting Bradenton Christian
89-57 in a non-district game.
The Lady Indians had five
players score in double fig-
ures. Center Lisa Hough led
the balanced scoring attack
with 20 points. Despite being
saddled with the flu, point
guard Natalie Gaudreau
looked sharp in scoring 19
points. Wing Dana Nostin
popped for 15. Power forward
Vickie Mitchell had 11 points.
Wing Kailey Dettmann keeps


looking sharper after missing
a good chunk after knee
surgery. She finished with 10
points.
Venice shot the ball well
from long distance. Gaudreau
and Nostin each had three
treys. Dettmann canned two
and Marla Cooke one.
"Kailey is working her way
back," Venice coach Joe
DiGiacomr said. "Natalie had
a good night even though
she's been sick. Dana shot the
ball well. Vickie is really com-
ing along."
DiGiacomo has also been
impressed with the recent
work of backup center Sa-
mantha Worthington. She
had eight points against
Charlotte and added five

enton Christian.

Venice went on to defeat
Lake Gibson, 48-24; Tampa

Chamberlain 39-30 to ad-
vance to the third place
match, and get another shot
at Durant.
Kelly praised the effort of
112-pounder in the Cham-
berlain match.
"He was losing by a wide
margin but turned around
and pinned his kid with an
Oklahoma," Kelly said. "In-
stead of losing five points, we
picked up six: That's an 11-
point swing."
The second time; against
Durant would produce a dif-
ferent outcome.
"I made one change in the
lineup," Kelly said. "The first
time, they had a kid named
Bennett who beat (Cory)
Rittenhouse by a technical
fall at 103. The second time,
Cory wrestled 112 and won
17-10. We were able to save
points there."
Also, heavyweight Anth-

Venice had three wrestlers
go unbeaten on the day. Brett
Nelson (145 pounds), Zach

,Residents sound off

'about school calendar


. BYANGELINETAYLOR
-: STAFF WRITER

Weeks of advertising the
z Sarasota County school cal-
b endar has brought out nearly
1,000 residential responses.
online.
Parents, teachers and staff
let their opinions of the
school calendars for 2005-06
and 2006-07 be known prior
to the school board's Jan. 18
decision.
Last year, the calendar was
under scrutiny because Good
Friday was not observed. As a
result, 25 percent of the stu-
dent and teacher population
was absent. Board members
voted to then observe the date
for the 2004-05 calendar.
Only seven residents
agreed with the decision to
observe Good Friday; yet, the
calendar committee decided
to have no school on that day
for the next two years.
"What's instructionally
sound for kids," said Scott
Lempe, schools executive di-
rector of human re-
sources/labor and calendar
chair. "Religious issues aside,
we can't have a school day
when 25 percent of our stu-
dents won't be there."
Third highest category for
responses came from those
who believe spring break is
held too late in the school
year,
SThe break was moved to
accommodate the Good
Friday holiday.
If the calendar is approved,
spring breaks will be observed
in the last week in March dur-

some of the best teachers and
therapists around," Janet said.
"It was very comforting as
parents to know that our son
was at a day care where the
staff was educated and
trained to work with children
-with special needs, plus be.
able to receive all of his thera-
pies on-site during the school
day."
"He has grown into a little
man who lights up the room
and makes everyone's day a
good one."
One-stop service
Her testimony to the excel-
lent care given at the center,
and how it made her life more
manageable, is appreciated
byThe Florida Center staff.
SLast year The Florida Cen-
ter programs and services
touched the lives. of more
than 5,800 local children and
:theirnfamilies.
The Florida Center is a
nationally accredited agency
offering a full array of com-
prehensive, community-bas-
ed services to local children
and families within the Sara-
sota, Manatee, DeSoto and
Charlotte County areas.
In July 2003, Family Coun-
seling Center and the Child
Development Center merg-
ed to form The Florida Cen-
ter.
.Combining the Child De-
velopment Center's early edu-
cation and therapeutic ser-
,vices for children (birth to 5)
with the 'Family Counseling
'Center's expertise in helping
families cope with difficult
Issues, would allow the center
to provide seamless delivery
of services for children and
their family members.
i The organization is now
well known and recognized
both nationally and through-
out the state of Florida for the
good work it does, said Peter
D. Howard, president and
CEO.
"With programs consoli-
dated, we now provide one-
stop service to our families at
a lower administrative cost to
us," he said. "This savings
allows us to reinvest our dol-
lars to create new services or


expand existing services in
our community."
"The Florida Center is
positioned to grow and serve
more children and familiesin
more ways than ever before.
We are grateful to our dedicat-
ed board members, generous
funders, committed staff, and
deeply involved parents for
helping us move forward."

Schools security chief Garcia resigns


BY ANGELINE TAYLOR

Sarasota County schools
director of safety and security
Hector Garcia has resigned
after nearly a year in the
school district to accept a
position as the Clark County,

He came to the county's

times the size of Sarasota

With that in mind, Gar-

that's of critical importance in
school districts across the
country: Was Garcia over-
qualified?
"His qualifications lined
up almost perfectly with our
job description," said Schools
Superintendent Gary Norris.
"His skills and qualifications
were just what we needed.
From what I can tell, Hector


just missed the day-in, day-
out of running a police force."
In Del Ray Beach, Fla.,
Garcia was a lieutenant in the
school's police force, said
Scott Lempe, schools execu-
tive director of human re-
sources/labor relations.
He was considered the No.
2 man, Lempe said.
Plans are for Garcia to be
approved by the Clark County
School Board by vote on Jan.

unther Gebel-Williams statue completion expected by Ail 30
Gunther Gebel-Williams statue completion expected by April 30 -... ---/


Once finished, the statue of Gunther Gebel-
Williams will be placed at the Venice Train Depot.
Sculptor Ed Kasprowicz advised the statue com-
mittee of his progress Tuesday afternoon.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Nearly three years after his
death, Venice's favorite son,
Gunther Gebel-Williams, will
become the first Venice resi-
dent ever to have a larger-
than-life-sized statue erected
within city limits in his honor.
Apollo Beach sculptor Ed
Kasprowicz was at the Venice
Gondolier Sun Tuesday, Jan.
11, to update members of the
statue committee about the
status of the project, and its
expected completion date.
"The foundry agreed to cast
the bronzes in two groups,"
Kasprowicz said. "I'm work-
ing on assembling the figure
at home and by the time I fin-
ish the figure, hopefully
they'll have the cape done."
The figure was cast in 11
pieces and the cape will be
done in 28 pieces, for a total of
39 pieces that will have to be
welded together by the artist
and then finished. Allowing
for casting time and the art-
ist's finishing work, including
welding, the statue is expect-
ed to be completed in Kas-
prowicz' studio by April 30.
Mounting on its granite
base and site installation is
expected to occur the follow-
ing month.
Restaurant owner Steve
Harner (Bogey's and The
Crow's Nest) has offered to ca-
ter the statue unveiling event
at a date yet to be announced.
In August, committee
members traveled to his stu-
dio to approve the life-sized
lay model prior to the bronze
casting -process, which was
delayed by the hurricanes
that struck Southwest Florida
in September, backing up
work at the foundry.
"It's overwhelming to see
it," the performer's wife Sigrid
Gebel said at that time. "The
boots, the legs, th&"torso.. It
has weight. It has movement.
The arms are fine. You did a
magnificent job, Ed."
The completed'bronze will
depict the legendary per-,
former garbed in perfor-
mance pants, boots and vest,
topped by the flowing cape he
! always wore when he entered
the circus arena, often while
standing astride an elephant,
his right arm raised in the air.
That pose was the inspiration
for the statue.
Like the famous performer,
the completed bronze statue
will be larger than life, nearly
8 feet in height. It will be
placed on a site just north of
Venice Train Depot on a gran-
ite base and will be illuminat-
ed at night.
The sculptor worked from
several photos, studied pro-
gram books and conferred
oftenwith Gebelinthe process.
At the August meeting, Gebel
and her daughter requested
minor adjustments to the
teeth, hair and forehead but
otherwise concurred with the
committee in granting approv-
al for the final steps.


The performer known as
the "greatest animal trainer of
all time" was a home-town
hero, someone who chatted
casually with his fellowVenice
residents while waiting in line
at local restaurants. When he
died on July 19, 2001, more
than 2,000 friends, fans and
performers gathered at Our
Lady of Lourdes Church in
Venice for the funeral.

THE STORY SO FAR
In fall 2001, a committee was
formed to oversee the cre-
ation of a statue to immortal-
ize famed animal trainer
Gunther Gebel-Williams who
resided in Venice from 1968
until his death from cancer on
July 19. 2001. Following his
selection as the artist from a
lengthy list of contenders, Ed
Kasprowicz created a minia-
ture statue known as a
maquette, depicting a nude
Gebel-Williams, then a larger-
than-life-sized nude. and final-
ly a clothed maquette.
Following approval of that
maquerte, the artist began
this full-sized clay statue, the
final step in the modeling
process before the bronze
casting is made.

Also present at Tuesday's,
meeting were members of the
board of the Venice Area
Historical Socieet, which took
-over the fund-handling pro-
cess shortly after the statue
committee was formed by for-
mer Venice Gondolier Sun edi-
tor Doug Bolduc in fall 2001.
Final cost of the statue and
its installation is expected to
be in excess of $40,000. Funds
have been collected and re-
ceived from the city of Venice,,
Sarasota County, the Earhart
Foundation and the Venice
Gondolier Sun as well as from
individual donors.
Members of the commit-
tee are George McLean, his-
torical society president; Bet-
ty Intagliata, historical society
vice-president; Don Hay of
Salomon Barney Inc. Smith;
Susan C. Hanks, CPA, of Pea-
cock & Company. Certified

Venice Contra Dancers are
moving to a new location and
will meet at a new time.
Beginning Jan. 15, Contra
dancers will be at Laurel Park,
509 Collins Road in Nokomis,
on the third Saturday of each
'-modnth, with instruction a--
7:30 p.m. and dancing to a
band 8-11 p.m. On the 15th,
music will be provided by
Fiddle and Keys and the caller
will be Eric Harris. There will
be free refreshments. The
dances are for all ages and

ence is necessary. For more
information, call 966-1847 or

"Zorba" opens at The
Players Theatre, 838 North
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, at
7:30 p.m. Jan. 13, where it will
play until Jan. 30. Matinees
will be at 2 p.m. Jan. 16,22,23
and'30. All other perfor-
mances will be at 8 p.m. The
theater is dark on Monday
nights.
"Zorba" offers a timeless
message of a will to peace that
transcends forgiveness and
organized religion. Alexis
Zorba (played by Tom Yowar-
ski), a Greek workman, is the
subject of a story of repudia-
tion 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
and Ebb, is riveting and en-
gaging. The twists and turns
of the plot 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 Mao-
lakas and Peter Lykiardop-
oulo as Nlavrodani.

The San Diego Chicken with Dick Dodderidge.


Dodderidge fesses up


STORY BY KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR

enice resident Dick Dodderidge
Smet a lot of big names during his
career in advertising and his years
in Rotary. In his recently
published book, he wrote about meeting
and working with.-the stars and-politicians. -


Hollywvood gossip colum-
nists can't compare with
Venice resident Dick Dod-
deridge.
\While the Hedda Hoppers
and Suzis of the world were
gathering reams of juicy tid-
bits on stars and politicos,
Dodderidge was socializing
with those same people, pick-
ing up the real stories instead
of gossip-column fodder.
Finally, after much push-
ing and prodding by his wife
of 51 years, Anne. Dodderidge
put pen to paper. The result is
"Confessions of a Small Time
Name Dropper," a 163-page
book .of personal vignettes
about his meetings and rela-
tionships with more than 125
interesting personalities.
"It was fun to reminisce
about the celebrities," he said.
"I just started writing on the
computer. I wrote until I got
tired. It took about two years
to write the vignettes and
then I had to go back and
clean it all up."
In addition to cleaning up
the writing by double-check-
ing grammar, spelling and
punctuation, Dodderidge
also respected his subjects'
privacy.
"I knew some stuff, so I
toned it down," he said.


From Casper WVeinberger
and the San Diego Chicken to
Jack Benny, Dodderidge met.
worked with and often par-
tied with some of the biggest
names in show business,
sports and the political world.
Those pictures that he did
acquire found their way into
his book.
He even made one of those
big names the highest paid
man in the world.
No wonder stars liked
Dodderidge so much and
lined up to have their picture
taken with him.
That the highest-paid man
also had a reputation as the
tightest man in the world is
intriguing.
The well-paid star was Jack
Benny. Benny had raised a
-great deal of money for
orchestras all over the United
States by performing on his
famous violin in concert with
those orchestras.
Dodderidge, an advertising
account executive, was work-
ing with a mail-order insur-
ance company whose presi-
dent was trying to get Beruy
to play with the Des Moines
Symphony. Benny's agent
said Des Moines was "89 on
the list." When the client
called Dodderidge to see if he


Pierce Brosnan, also known as "007," with Dick Dodderidge.


might advance to the top of
the list if he were to hire
Benny as a spokesman for his
insurance company.
Americare 39, the deal was
smltck. In exchange for posing
for a few photos, doing a pro-
motional recording and a
couple of TV spots, about a
dhv'"s work, Benny was to be-
paid $600,000. Even today,
that is not bad pay for one
day's work. Consider that the
deal was struck in 1970.
Berinys manager, Irvin Fein.
said the deal made Beruy the
highest-paid man in the
world. The deal also marked
the beginning of a friendship
between Benny and Dod-
deridge that would last four
years until Benny's death on
Dec. 26,1974.
,A their friendship devel-
oped, Dodderidge got to
know the real Bernn. Dod-
deridge said Benny was not
funny all the time, nor was he
a tightwad. Though not a
spendthrift either, he was
generous. On one trip togeth-
er, Benny presented the Dod-
deridges with one of his \io-
lins. The autographed instru-
ment has become one of the
Dodderidge's prized posses-
sions and has a place of honor
in their Venice home.
While Dodderidge the
advertising man made friends
with Benny and other celebri-
ties, Dodderidge the longtime
Rotarian traveled to more
than 50 countries and
befriended many other
celebrities in that realm.
Then, during two years as a
college president and then six
years as the senior vice presi-
dent in the corporate market-
ing division of AMIC, a major
movie theater chain,
Dodderidge met a lot more
celebrities.
As a golf addict, he met top
professionals such as Arnold
Palmer, Lee Trevino, Johnny
Miller, Hale Irvin, Corey
Paxin. Tom Kite and even for-
mer President Jerry Ford dur-
ing annual vacations in Vail,
Colo. The vacations were
timed to coordinate with the
Jerry Ford In\itational Golf
Tournament held there at the
beginning of August each
year.
Some of the other sports
celebrities he has met include
tennis star Rod Laver, Dick
Vitale of Sarasota and Kansas
City Chiefs quarterback,
Superbowl MVP and NFL Hall


Charles Kuralt with Anne and Dick Dodderidge.


Dan Akroyd with Dick Dodderidge.


of Famer Len Dawson.
Meeting all these people
was just luck, Dodderidge
said. Or was it?
Where it all began
Armed with. a degree in
journalism from Kansas State
University, Dodderidge began
his working years as a radio
announcer before switching
to the advertising field. He
had plenty of opportunities to
hone his writing skills in the
advertising field, especially in
the early days when he was an
account executive.
"I wrote for years but then I
moved into management," he


said. "When the Royale Type-
writer went out of business, I
couldn't deal with electronic
typewriters. The computer is
more gentle. Now, with a
computer, I do a lot of writing
and e-mail to a master list all
over the world."
Never one to rest on his
laurels, Dodderidge followed
a 35-year stint with one
advertising firm with a few
years as a consultant before
changing careers entirely and
becoming the hlterim presi-
dent of the Kansas City Art
Institute, a four-year college

Filling out FAFSA forms can save parents money


The early bird gets the worm: January is
time to apply for money for college.


STAFF REPORT

For families of high school
seniors, Jan. 1 brings more
than just New Year's re-
solutions. As National Fi-
nancial Aid Month, January
marks the time when col-
lege-bound students and
their families determine how
they will pay for higher edu-


cation.
"Paying for your child's
dream school is easier than
you think," said Martha
Holler, spokesperson for
Sallie Mae, the nation's lead-
ing paying-for-college com-
pany. "Now is the time to
complete your Free Appli-
cation for Federal Student
Aid (FAFSA), because the


closer to January 1 you apply,
the better your chances of
getting free or cheap money
to pay for college."
More than $122 billion in
financial aid is available,
and it comes from multiple
sources the federal gov-
ernment, states and higher
education institutions.
Some 13 million students
apply for money for college
annually, so by submitting
the FAFSA early, students
put themselves at the head
of the line. A late application


may cause families to miss
out on free money.
Every high school gradu-
ate with a Social Security
number is entitled to free or
inexpensive money to pay
for college.
That is why even those
families who think they do
not qualify for financial aid
should still apply.
You can-not make too
much or too little money.
Families can stay ahead of
the deadlines and speed the
entire process by applying


online at the Department of
Education's Web site, fafsa.
ed.gov.
The online FAFSA also
will alert applicants to miss-
ing or inaccurate informa-
tion.
For tips on how to com-
plete the FAFSA, as well as
other resources, students and
parents should visit College-
Answer.com. The site offers a
checklist to help families
gather the appropriate docu-
ments needed to complete
the application, such as infor-


mation related to income,
investments and taxes. Col-
lege Answer also offers access
to the largest scholarship
database containing more
than 2.4 million scholarships
worth more than $14 billion
in funds, and interactive cal-
culators to estimate what a
family may be expected to
contribute toward the cost of
college.
Completing the FAFSA
should take about two hours
and this is one case where
time really can be money.

Understanding your

teenager seminar at VHS


STAFF REPORT


All parents want their
children to grow up with
sound values, good deci-
sion-making skills, and a
healthy sense of personal
responsibility. But in today's
world, good kids don't jut
happen. With a few excep-
tions, good kids are the
product of good parenting.
What about the teen years?
Is it possible for parents to
influence the positive devel-
opment of their children after
they hit puberty? Can parents
possibly compete with ado-
lescent culture, peer pressure
and the media? Many parents
today have their doubts.
But according to Mark
DeVries, who conducts an
"Understanding Your Teen-
ager" seminar at Venice High
School on Thursday, Jan. 27,
the answer is a resounding
yes. Parents who understand
what's going on in the lives of
their children during adoles-
cence and who are willing
to apply a few simple parent-
ing principles will remain
the most important influence


in the lives of their kids -
even during their teenage
years.
There's no such thing as a
perfect parent, of course, but
all parents can become a little
better than they are right now.
It's simply not enough for
parents to cross their fingers
and hope for the best.
Parents who attend the
seminar will learn important
principles for building good
relationships with their kids
during the teen years. The
seminar will provide plenty
of practical ideas and sugges-
tions to help every parent
navigate the rough waters of
adolescence. :Parents will
also learn how to avoid com-
mon parenting mistakes and
to do those little things that
reap bid results in the lives of
teenagers.
The seminar begins at 6
p.m. The cost is $10 and $5
for a second family member.
Free pizza and drinks pro-
vided during intermission.
All parents and teens and
preteens are invited to attend.
Call 493-7504 for tickets or
information.

Feb. 15 is the targeted
opening date according to
Bill Coyne,.general manager.
Coyne admitted they have a
pretty big job ahead with ren-
ovations that include a new
design stand and a long bar
with seating for 30-40 people.
The customized restaurant
with a martini bar and new
tiered, elevated booths pro-
vide seating for 220, lake
views for most diners, plus
outside veranda tables. There
is a small banquet room ac-
commodating 35.
"Most interior construc-
tion will be completed this
week, major interior drywall
construction starts and
kitchen equipment is coming
in," said Coyne.
They are hiring 35 servers,
six hostesses and five bar-
tenders.
Bluebeny Muffin sold
We can expect to see a
national company or fran-
chise leasing the former
Blueberry Muffin location at
1779 South Tamiami Trail in
South Venice. According to
Merritt Realty Resources leas-
ing agent Donna Tolar, the
building sold recently, for
$365,000.

MarineMax expands
MarineMax on the island
has recently enlarged their
display area using land to the


north.
Spokesperson Taylor Mac-
Pherson said, "Now that the
road is completed, we needed
to increase our boat exposure
to the increased traffic using
Tamiami Trail. We have
acquired land that we had
previously leased to Darby
Buick."
Christmas store closing
Well-known Venetians Jim
and Liz Hill have decided to
retire. As a result, the lights
will soon be dimmed at Deck
The Halls, 925 Tamiami Trail
on the island.
"I started it 23 years ago. It
was very tiny and I sort of
stole the space from Jim's
store next door to have my
own Christmas store," said
Hill. Her husband retired from
his business six-and-a-half
years ago and has been wanti-
ng her to retire. They recently
bought a home in North
Carolina and want to use it
more.
"Our customers have been
our friends and I have misgiv-
ings about retiring," said Hill
during her closing sale.
Twenty-four
homes for sale
Is every other property on
Casey Key for sale?
"No," said Pat Theissen
owner of Crown Properties,
"but it's about average at 24.
That's typical for a very select
area of multi-million dollar
homes."
Theissen has been han-
dling business on the key for
21 years and said business
just keeps going up. It's a
world-monied area with buy-
ers from Europe and all over
the country who almost all
pay cash.
Lots and tear-down homes
start at $2.5 million with low-
est price homes from $3.5
million to $10.5 million, said
Theissen.
Booming and
phenomenal
"It's going to be an ab-


solutely booming market in
2005 for commercial and resi-
dential," said George Huhn of
Remax Properties, who be-
lieves we will see more
national and big box (Best
Buy, Circuit City, Bed, Bath &
Beyond, etc.) tenants.
People will have less need
to travel to Sarasota and Port
Charlotte to shop at the larger
stores. There is plenty of
money out there and a
tremendous appetite, but lit-
tle supply of land, which is
already leading to bidding
wars, he said.
"I think 2005 is going to be
phenomenal," said Terry
Purdy of Merritt Realty on
West Venice Avenue.
Purdy, broker for the
youngest commercial broker-
age company in Venice, confi-
dently predicted new and
exciting things are in place for
the city and it will be a really
strong year.

Recovery bill could



reach a half-billion


BYJOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER


Get out the calculator,
sharpen some pencils, break
out a brand new 200-page
note pad, and set aside a few
hours.
You'll need these basics -
as well as some imagination
and, maybe, a few aspirin -
to put a comprehensive price
tag on the Federal Emergency
Management Agency's long-
range recovery plan for Char-
lotte County.
Here's one guesstimate:
$464 million to $535 million.
Here's the proverbial dis-
claimer: Your guess is as good
as any certified public ac-
countant's.
Here's why: The 33 pro-
jects outlined in the long-
range plan are often accom-
panied by varying scenarios.
Different options include
elements from other pro-
jects, so developing a synop-
tic tab is an exercise in
semantics.
And, probably, bad math.
Take, for instance, revital-
izing U.S. 41 considered
the top priority by local, state
and federal officials as well
as residents polled by FEMA.
Enhancing this vital com-
mercial corridor, which es-
sentially serves as the coun-
ty's Main Street, is estimated
to cost between $8 and $10
million. The county has $5.2
million available to kick start
the effort, but will need $2.8
to $4.8 million to complete
the project.
Of course, U.S. 41 "revital-
ization" will never, by defini-
tion, be "complete."
And elements within this
project, such. as improving
the regional transportation
network, developing employ-
ment opportunities, creating
more affordable housing, and
augmenting telecommunica-
tions are also identified sepa-
rately within the long-range
plan despite their integral
influence on U.S. 41 revital-
ization.
Confused?
Try tallying the estimated
costs of rebuilding Punta
Gorda considered the sec-
ond-most important priority
by local, state, and federal
officials as well as residents
polled by FEMA.
Identified as an individual
project, revitalizing down-


town Punta Gorda is project-
ed to cost $7.5 million. This
would include flood manage-
ment, establishment of a full-
service marina, traffic circula-
tion redesign and economic
incentives for downtown
businesses.
However, that $7.5 million
doesn't include replacing the
Charlotte County Memorial
Auditorium, renovating the
old courthouse and improv-
ing the regional transporta-
tion grid.
Rebuilding the Charlotte
County Memorial Auditor-
ium is estimated to cost $22.7
million. The county has $3
million in seed money, but
will need $19.7 million more
to finish the job.
FEMAs figure is about $10
million more than the $10
million to $12 million the
county's Auditorium-Court-
house Task Force estimates it
will cost to build a 50,000-
square-foot conference cen-
ter on the 8-acre auditorium
site.
Renovating the 73-year-
old county courthouse on
Taylor Street has a $4.15 mil-
lion price tag. The county
must find $3.1 million if it
plans to totally refurbish the
building.
So, throw in the confer-
ence center and courthouse
projects with revitalizing
downtown Punta Gorda and
the nebulous price tag is
about $34.3 million.
Give or take a few million,
add or subtract a few pro-
jects, and estimated costs
for any item in the long-
term plan can be constrict-
ed or compounded to fit any
budget.
Implementing the Char-
lotte Harbor Community
Redevelopment Area plan -
considered the third-most
important priority by local,
state and federal officials as
well as residents polled by
FEMA is estimated to cost
$23.5 million.
That figure includes an
estimated $6.5 to enhance
the Peace River bridges, an
option within the project.
But what it doesn't include
no individual project does
is the estimated $35,000 a
mile it will cost to lay fiber
optic cable and $220,000 for
each cell tower built in the
county.
How many miles? How


many towers? Imagination
and aspirin will help; a degree
in accounting won't.
Improving the airport and
developing the potential of
the industrial park consid-
ered the fourth-most impor-
tant priority by local, state
and federal officials as well
as residents polled by FEMA
- is estimated to cost $20
million.
This figure includes termi-
nal relocation at the airport,
extending utilities arid imple-
menting a "marketing strate-
gy" to promote the industrial
park.
Rebuilding the Charlotte
Sports Park considered the
fifth-most important priority
by local, state and federal
officials as well as residents
polled by FEMA is estimat-
ed to cost between $18 and
$20 million.
The sports park, the for-
mer spring training home of
the Texas Rangers that recent-
ly featured the county's high-
est landmark a mountain-
ous mound of hurricane-
debris has a $3 million
nest egg to get the project
rolling, but the county will
need between $15 million
and $17 million to finance the
whole effort.
Creating housing options
($46.1 million), revitalizing
neighborhoods ($16.5 mil-
lion), building community
centers ($6.5 million for
three), restoring schools ($6.5
million), "re-greening" the
county and Punta Gorda ($10
million), "managing water
effectively" ($5 million-$32
million), and rebuilding a
regional water supply inter-
connect ($154 million) were
not identified as specific pri-
orities, but are essential
components within the over-
all effort.
Add it all up and you real-
ize that calculating total costs
for the long-term recovery
plan is a guessing game with
so many twists and tangents,
it's futile to attempt to ascer-
tain a comprehensive price
tag.
So what?
It will cost $464 million to
$535 million. Bank on it -
but keep a few pencils with
big erasers handy.

Teachers' survey: It's not so

gr8 when e-mail slang slips

into students' schoolwork


GLORIA MILLS, ED. D.
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 focuses on answering
common questions and shar-
ing views on education.

Millions of children (and
adults) use language similar
to the headline to chat with
friends, make weekend plans
and stay in touch with out-of-
town relatives via e-mail and
Instant Messaging (IM).
As students return from
holiday break, it is important
that this informal writing style
of shortened words, improper
grammar, lack of punctuation
and use of "emoticons" such
as smiley faces and other key-
board-created graphics does
not follow them back to the
classroom.
According to a recent

teacher survey, 91 percent of
teachers nationwide say they
do not accept the use of this
informal writing style in their
students' assignments and
tests.
Parents should talk to their
children about using different
styles of language to commu-
nicate with different audi-
ences, as adults do in work
and home environments. Just
as students would talk to an
adult at school differently
than to a friend at the beach,
they also need to remember
to adjust their writing style.
Formal writing for the
classroom must be grammat-
ically correct, with full words
and proper sentence struc-
ture. Slang and shortcuts are
commonplace in e-mail and
Instant Messaging, but not
acceptable in schoolwork.
E-mail and IM style of writ-
ing isn't all bad, since it does
encourage students to write
more often. In fact, more than
three quarters (76 percent) of
teachers surveyed agree that
children can benefit from e-
mail and IM as a learning
opportunity.
When crafting e-mails,
children are challenged to
carefully choose their words,
keep it simple and use rela-
tively few words to convey
tone and meaning appropri-
ately. The popularity of
Internet writing is also help-
ing children see writing as a
fun activity that encourages
creative writing, and not just
something they "have to do."

North Port officials offer water proposal


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


With future water needs
clearly evident, North Port
city officials are taking the
high road in negotiations
with the Peace River/Mana-
sota Regional Water Supply
Authority board to obtain
more water.
During the authority's reg-
.ular monthly meeting Wed-
nesday, North Port Utility
Director Cindi Mick.and John
Jenkins, an attorney with the
Tallahassee-based firm of
Rose, Sundstrom & Bentley,
presented a proposal to the
authority's four-member
board that would meet the
city's needs without short-
changing any other member.
"We don't want to delay
anything," said Mick, "North
Port has things to offer and
we want to proceed in a
regional manner. But they do
have to meet our needs under
the contract."
The authority com-
posed of Charlotte, Sarasota,
DeSoto and Manatee coun-
ties is currently in the plan-


ning stages of a $110 million
expansion of the authority's
water treatment plant on
King's Highway near Arcadia
from 18 million gallons of
water daily to 32.7 mgd.
The additional capacity of
14.7 mgd has already been
allocated between Charlotte,
Sarasota, DeSoto and North
Port, the utilities four cus-
tomers, but North Port has
not approved the allocation
agreement, objecting to its
additional allocation of 1.508
mgd.
Instead, North Port seeks
an additional 5 mgd to meet
anticipated needs.
Jenkins said in reviewing
the allocation agreement,
there is 4.7 mgd of water in
the expansion that will not be
allocated until 2013. He pro-
posed that the authority allo-
cate the 4.7 mgd now to meet
North Port's request and rely
upon alternative supplies
that will become available in
2013.
Doing so he said, would
make more water available
sooner than the current ex-
pansion plan calls for.


"I think you have the abili-
ty under your contract with
North Port to take aggressive
action to provide them with
water," said Jenkins. "And
when you do, we'll be on the
hook to pay for it."
Jenkins' proposal found a
receptive audience in Char-
lotte County Commissioner
Adam Cummings.
"When this issue with
North Port first came to my
attention, I was sitting there
comfortably inside my box,"
said Cummings. "But I've
been jarred out of my box by
Cindi (Mick). They have pre-
sented a very elegant answer
by changing the time line,
which buys us more time to
solve the other issues."
Like North Port, Charlotte
also needs more water it
will get an additional 3.342
mgd and Cummings saw
North Port's plan as a way for
Charlotte to gain more water,
while it would also cut the
time DeSoto would have to
pay for undelivered water.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub was
not as receptive to,the pro-


posal as Cummings however.
"Sarasota County has been
planning for water and tried
to do it right," Staub said
before pointing out how the
annexation of almost half the
Thomas Ranch (formerly the
Taylor Ranch) had skewed
those plans. Staub said that
the ranch was listed on the
county's plans as a, future
urban area with development
planned to begin in 10 to 20
years, and charged that the
Thomas family had sought
the annexation to further its
own development plans.
"I'm amenable to looking
at it, though," Staub added,
saying she was not happy
with the thought that North
Port might file a lawsuit over
the issue.
The authority's board took
no action on North Port's pro-
posal, instead deferring
action until February after the
four county administrators
and technical staff from each
county had studied it.

Charlotte County curfew cases may be dropped


BYCHRISTYARNOLD
STAFF WRITER


The curfew enacted after
Hurricane Charley was never
formally filed, meaning it
wasn't a law when nearly 100
people were arrested for vio-
lating it during the two weeks
after the catastrophic Cate-
gory 4 storm struck on Aug.
13.
The State Attorney's Office
is now considering dropping
all 96 curfew violation cases
in Charlotte County.
"Any curfew violation
should probably be dismiss-
ed," said Assistant State At-
torney Don Mason.
But more than half of the
cases have already been re-
solved with guilty verdicts or
withheld adjudications. That
leaves about 50 people .who
paid the price for a second-
degree misdemeanor that


may not have actually been a
law.
"They may want to talk to
an attorney for that," Mason
said.
About 20 second-degree
misdemeanor curfew viola-
tions have been dropped and
24 are still pending, according
to the Clerk's Office. Some
who were arrested on curfew
violations faced additional
charges if they were caught
breaking other laws after the
curfew. Those additional
charges may hinge on a
judge's ruling.
The failure to formally file
the curfew ordinance was dis-
covered by Punta Gorda
attorney Paul Sullivan, who is
defending a 55-year-old man
accused of violating the cur-
few while possessing a con-
cealed firearm and resisting
arrest withoutt violence.
"It's gratifying to see they


are finally going to be dis-
missing these cases," Sullivan
said.
After the county commis-.
sioners issued the emergency
order to create a curfew from
9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Aug. 14,
the order then had to be filed
with the Clerk's Office, the
official record keeper.
But the order was never
filed, possibly due to the con-
fusion and hectic times that
followed the hurricane, Sulli-
van said.
"The way I read (the law)
... is if it never was filed, it
never became law," Sullivan
said last month.
Sullivan filed a motion in
December regarding the cur-
few and requested his client's
.22-caliber Derringer be sup-
pressed as the weapon was
discovered during a curfew
violation on Aug. 19.
Last Monday, Sullivan and


Mason argued the merits of
Sullivan's motion. Mason con-
ceded in court that the curfew
was never formally enacted
and dropped the curfew viola-
tion charge against Berg.
But that doesn't bring an
end to Berg's problems.
Sullivan argues that be-
tause the curfew was not en-
acted, the other charges that
stemmed from the curfew
arrest should be tossed.
Mason, however, intro-
duced a Georgia case that
carries similarities to Berg's
situation...
It's unknown when Circuit
Judge Donald Pellecchia will
rule on Sullivan's motion,
which may affect other cur-
few cases that netted addi-
tional charges.
"When we initiated the
curfew, we thought we were
doing it right." Sheriff Bill
Cameron said last Nlonday.

Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
4865 c K42 oAQ8 4AQ53
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1 Pass 2NT Pass
3v Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A Despite your offbeat two no
trump response without a spade stop-
per, you have a maximum for your
action. To show this and your heart
support at the same time, start by
cue-bidding your cheaper ace. Bid
four clubs.
Q 2 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
S Void v KQJ10963 oJ1076 *Q5
Partner opens the bidding with one
club. What do you respond?
A Your hand is good for one thing
only taking tricks in hearts. Bid
four hearts, not only because you
might make it if you buy the hand,'
but because you might shut out a
four-spade game by the opponents.
Q 3 East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:
*AQ96 A72 0 82 *AJ104
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
10 Pass 14 Pass
26 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A The obvious bid is to jump to
four spades, and that is the action
most players would take. However,
we confess to a distinct liking for a
bid of three clubs, starting a mild
slam try and giving partner the
chance to clarify whether he has
three- or four-card support for
spades. We love those three aces.
Q 4 Both vulnerable, you hold:
4.110 o AJ10542 o KQJ106 4Void


The biddinghas proceeded:
NORTH AST SOUTH
1NT Pass 2*
26 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A Your lack of prime cards is a dis-
tinct flaw. The tricks you need to rake
in 10 in spades or nine at no trump
might be too slow in developing, with
the opponents getting in the setting
tricks early. We would settle for the
almost sure plus score by passing.

DODDERIDGE from page B


in downtown Kansas City.
While there he met members
of the Walf Disney family
because the school's most
notable graduate was Walter
Elias Disney. One interesting
chapter of Dodderidge's book
even includes a story about
the creation of a mouse that
influenced an entire industry.
In his two years at the col-
lege, enrollment increased
and the balance sheet figures
changed from red to black.
His next stop was Holly-
wood, where he worked for
AMC and ran into virtually
every heavy hitter in the
entertainment industry at the
annual conventions of the
National Association of The-
atre Owners or at expense-
account luncheons where he
might either dine with enter-
tainment people or see them


at nearby tables.
Even after retiring and
moving to Venice, he contin-
ued to meet and befriend
celebrities such as the late cir-
cus star Gunther Gebel
Williams and jazz pianist and
composer Dick Hyman and
his wife Julia, a well-known
sculptor.
"We really like Dick," Julia
Hyman said. "He's our Jack
Benny friend."
The Hymans and the Dod-
deridges met several years
ago through a mutual friend,
Jerry Wexler, and have been
close friends ever since. Wex-
ler was a Kansas State class-
mate who went on to be a
giant in the record industry.
'Anne and I think of our-
selves as Dick Hyman group-
ies," Dodderidge said.
Through the Hymans, the

and Dick Dodderidge.

Dodderidges have met many
more jazz and entertainment
greats.
And so it goes.
Like the celebrities they


have met, the Dodderidges
are active people. She teaches
computer classes and he con-
tinues to be active in Rotary.
They travel frequently -
sometimes to the far comers
of the world, other times to
visit their children and grand-
children. It is said that there is
a book in everyone. In the
case of the Dodderidges,
there are probably more than
one.
"When I give my talks, I
say, .'Everyone should write a
book,' he said. "to put in
writing their life for their off-
spring. I remember my father
when he was elderly. I had
him sit in my living room and
talk into a tape recorder so
that I have something. So
often I find someone I wish I
had known and I only find out
about that person in the obit-


uaries."
Dodderidge speaks at the
Venice Public Library's Book-
ed for Lunch program Friday,
Jan. 14 at noon. The library is
at 300 S. Nokomis Ave., on the

A If you have some bid such as a

Otherwise, the majority will support
a bid of two hearts, although we

Views on hormone replacement therapy changing


Editor's Note: This is part two of
a series on hormone replacement.

BY DR. ROBERT L. BRENNER, M.D.
GUEST COLUMNIST

OK, ladies. You finally
decided that maybe hormone
replacement therapy is not
the kiss of death. So how do
you decide which hormones
to take?
Prior to menopause the
ovary is responsible for se-
creting a number of different
hormones. The most signifi-
cant of these are estrogen,
progesterone and testos-
terone. Egg cells must be pre-
sent in the ovary for synthesis
of estrogen and progesterone.
Testosterone on the other
hand, is not dependent on
egg cells for its production.
We call this phenomenon
menopause. It is the lack of
estrogen that causes the well
known symptoms of meno-
pause (i.e., hot flashes, night
sweats, lack of menstrual
periods and vaginal dryness).
Progesterone, on the other
hand, is responsible for pre-


venting the estrogen from
overstimulating the lining of
the uterus. Withdrawal of
progesterone causes the lin-
ing of the uterus to slough,
causing the menstrual peri-
od. If fertilization of the egg
occurs, progesterone contin-
ues to be produced and sup-
ports the pregnancy until the
placenta can produce
enough progesterone to sup-
port the pregnancy. As for
testosterone, we still do not
have a complex understand-
ing of its function in women.
The treatment of meno-
pausal symptoms requires
estrogen. In women who still
have a uterus, progesterone is
required to prevent overstim-
ulation of the uterine lining.
Women who have had a hys-
terectomy do not require the
addition of progesterone.
Testosterone is sometimes
added to the regime to help
improve libido, but don't get
too excited. The results still
remain disappointing.
Estrogen can be given in its
naturally occurring forms of
estradiol or estrone, synthetic


estrogen (ethinyl estradiol),
or conjugated estrogens de-
rived from the urine of preg-
nant mares (Premarin) or
synthesized from plants
(Cenestin). It can be given in
combination with proges-
terone as two separate pills
(Estradiol) and Medroxypro-
gesterone acetate or Estradiol
and Promectrium or as one
pill (PremPro or PremPhase).
You can even take a pill that
contains estradiol and tes-
trosterone (Estrtest). Instead
of taking a pill, you can use a
skin patch or estradiol (Vi-
velle, Cimara, Esclim, Estra-
derm, Alora, Menostar) or
you can get both estradiol
and progesterone in a skin
patch form (Combipatch). To
complicate issues even fur-
ther, all of these drugs come
in different doses. The newest
"kids on the block" are a vagi-
nal ring inserted into vaginal
every three months (Fem-
ring) and an estrogen gel that
can be rubbed into the skin
(Estrasorb). These work simi-
larly to the skin patch in that
the estrogen is absorbed


directly into the blood
stream. For women whose
only menopausal symptom is
vaginal dryness, estrogen can
be given as a vaginal insert
(Vagifem), a vaginal cream
used with an applicator, or as
a vaginal ring (Estring). These
preparations have minimal
systemic absorption and
don't have the same risks as
systemic estrogen therapy.
A novel approach to hor-
mone replacement therapy
being touted by actress Su-
zanne Somers along with
compounding pharmacists is
"bioidentical hormones."
These are hormones that are
naturally found in the human
body administered as creams
or pills specially compound-
ed by compounding pharma-
cists. They also recommend
hormone testing measuring
levels of hormones in saliva
and titrating the dose of med-
ication based on the labora-
tory values. "Bioidentical hor-
mones" help relieve meno-
pausal symptoms but there is
not evidence that they are any
more effective than the stan-


dard hormone replacement
therapy regimes. There is also
no convincing scientific evi-
dence that measuring sali-
vary hormone levels increas-
es safety or efficacy. Most
important, just because
"bioidentical hormones" are
natural, that does not mean
they are safer. The risks of
using "bioidentical hor-
mones" are no different from
the risks of the standard
patches, pills or vaginal rings.
Confused? Don't be. Let
me give you a few basic
guidelines as to which hor-
mones are right for you:
1. Women with hot flashes,
night sweats, and vaginal dry-
ness can benefit from estro-
gen replacement.
2. Estrogen replacement
can be given in any of the
forms discussed. The choice
of therapy should be deter-
mined by the most conve-
nient route of administration
using the lowest dose that
relieves symptoms.
3. Women who have an
intact uterus require the addi-
tion of progesterone.


4. Testosterone can be
added to improve libido or to
treat hot flashes and night
sweats that don't respond to
estrogen alone.
5. Based on our present
knowledge, no form of hor-
mone replacement is safer
than any other form.
6. Women whose only
complaint is vaginal dryness
can use local estrogen thera-
py to the vagina. This does
not have the risks that sys-
temic estrogen has.
7. The final decision of
which product to use may
well depend on which prod-
uct your insurance company
will pay for.
How long should therapy
continue? Until you no longer
need it. Many doctors now try
to wean patients off hormone
replacement therapy after
five years of treatment. How-
ever, many women feel mis-
erable when stopping the
hormones. These women will
need to weigh the quality of
life issues versus the risks in
deciding to stay on hormone
replacement therapy.

Stretching: Take it to the

limit but not beyond


STAFF REPORT

Flexibility is the ability if a
muscle to work through its
range of motion.
The more a muscle at-
tached to a joint can stretch,
the more flexible the joint is.
Flexibility will decrease with
inactivity.
Flexibility is not something
general but is specific to a
particularjoint or set ofjoints.
Benefits of stretching
Stretching maintains
joint health. Joints that are
surrounded by tight muscles,
tendons and ligaments are
subject to deterioration and
injury.
Stretching helps prevent
lower back pain. Poor flexibil-
ity in your back, hips and
thighs can cause spinal mis-
alignment and put pressure
on the spinal nerves.
Stretching helps increase
and maintain complete range
of motion of your joints.
Stretching helps prevent
post-exercise soreness and
relieves muscle soreness.
Good flexibility helps you
assume good body position
through a range of motion in
sports and therefore allows
you to exert better force
throughout the movement.
Stretching promotes gen-
eral body relaxation and re-
duction of emotional stress.
Stretching relieves joint
stiffness associated with the
natural aging process.


Stretching increases mus-
cle and tendon length to min-
imize muscle tears, joint
sprains and muscle strains.
Stretching increases tis-
sue temperature prior to
activity to improve elasticity.
Stretching reduces tight-
ness that may contribute to
pain and cramping. (i.e., sit-
ting in the car a lot).
Stretching plays an im-
portant role in the recovery
from or rehabilitation of in-
jury.
Stretching facilitates
strength development. Tight
muscles inhibit strength gain.
In the stretch
You should go through
your flexibility routine three-
five days a week.
As part of your warm-up
phase, do controlled dynamic
stretches, three-five repeti-
tions of each stretch. Stretch
to the point of mild tension,
hold five seconds and then
repeat.
After your workout, do sta-
tic stretches to the point of
mild tension, hold for 10-15
seconds and then develop the
stretch further if possible. You
develop a stretch by pushing
further into the stretch. Do
this two or three times for a
total stretch time of 45-60 sec-
onds.

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST


Senior

Friendship

Center rocks

Some of the smoothest
dancers in town showed up at
the Senior Friendship Center
to ring in the new year. Russ
and Edna Migliore danced the
afternoon away. The couple
started dancing 64 years ago
and with all their years of
practice look like profession-
als on the dance floor.
Dick Fennell provided the
music and played dance tunes
like "Brazil" that kept every-
one moving. Line dancing
brought even more people to
center stage and offered ex-
perienced and novice dancers
a chance to show off their tal-
ents.
*The party included cham-
pagne and nonalcoholic
sparkling drinks along with
plenty of good food. Aston
Gardens provided many of the
refreshments.
Dave Jones and Denver
Auxier also spent a great part
of the day welcoming in the
new year but they did it at
the pool table. These two reg-
ulars are on hand at the Sen-
ior Friendship Center each
day starting at 8:15 a.m. and
enjoy challenging each other.
Activities include Teddy
bear making classes, begin-
ners basket weaving, wood
carving, lunches and ice
cream socials. Call 484-0052
for information.

Please remember to sup-
port the downtown Farmer's
Market. The merchants are on
hand each Saturday from 8
a.m. until noon providing
fresh vegetables, delicious
bread, seafood, herbs and
flowers. They are located in
Centennial Park.
The Venice Opera Guild
sponsors a Valentine Lunch-
eon on Feb. 11 at the Jaca-
randa West Country Club.
Tickets are $30. and include
music by soloist Donna Anna,
star of the Sarasota Opera pro-
duction "Don Giovanni."
Call 474-4472 for ticket
information.
Tomorrow's Woman Starts
Today is a conference spon-
sored by the Women's Re-
source Center scheduled for
Feb. 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30
p.m. at Venice Area Middle
School. The 10 breakout ses-
sions feature subjects like
"Wise, Wild, Wonderful Wom-
en," and "Making Change
Happen." Call 485-9724 for
information.
If yoy love New York City
and have always wanted to go
to the Tony Awards, contact
the Venice Little Theatre at
488-1115. Allan Kollar and
about 40 of his closest friends
can travel to the Big Apple to
see two shows, attend the
Tony Awards and have plenty
of time for shopping .and
sightseeing. The trip takes
place June 3 through 6.

The special person of this
week is Hank Ardolino. This
nice man knows how to get
people motivated to have fun.
He made the rounds at the
Senior Friendship Center
dancing with many women,
making jokes and visiting
tables to chat and make peo-
ple laugh.
As I watched him make his
rounds, I smiled thinking
every party needs someone
like Hank to get the spirit soar-
ing.
