'North Confusion's' days are numbered


The state is set to reconfigure and expand the
northern connector to Venice island in
September. The bypass, however, isn't even on the
calendar.


Burned
Snarled traffic but no
injuries in 1-75 fire.


ATA GLANCE
* What: U.S. 41 expansion from
four to six lanes.
- Location: North from Bird
Bay Drive for 2.5 miles to State
Road 681.
- When: Predicted start date of
September on the two-year
project.
- Bypass status: The bypass
south of Bird Bay Drive is
undergoing three years of
redesign, and there is no pre-
dicted construction date.
State money has not been
budgeted for needed land
purchases on the expansion.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

When selecting a new loca-
tion for his restaurant, owner
Peter Tsaoussis didn't know
the area he picked was nick-
named "North Confusion."
The five months since
opening have shown why the
northern U.S. 41 split into the
bypass and business routes
has that name. Workers at
Cactus Steakhouse have wit-
nessed at least four car crash-
es, many of them caused
while traffic attempts to
merge.
Tsaoussis, whose restau-
rant borders northbound U.S.


41 Business off the island and
U.S. 41 Bypass southbound,
believes another yield sign
would cut down on those car
crashes.
Those merging issues,
along with bushes and trees
blocking sight patterns and
poor lighting, led resident
Norm Lupo to complain to
the state. Its Dec. 27 response
lener agreed with him, and
said nearly every one of Lu-
po's complaints will be cor-
rected within the next two
years.
"W'hat's safe is safe," Lupo
said in an interview. "Why
haven't others, including
county and city officials, no-
ticed this and looked into dtis
long ago?"
No more confusion

Bicycle riders show

There are some cities where if a bicycle rider gave
a motorist an obscene gesture, he would be shot
dead in the street. But in Venice, the finger rules.

People are hostile over
bicycle riders who disregard
traffic laws, then give motor-
ists an obscene gesture.
"They are so arrogant,"
wrote one man who e-mailed
the paper. "They think they
own the road."
A front-page story in the
Jan. 8 Venice Gondolier Sun,
pointed out that few, if any,
bicycle riders obey traffic
laws.
Under Florida law, bicycles
are considered vehicles. Peo-
ple who ride them are subject
to the same traffic laws as
people who drive automo-
biles.
Coastal Cruisers Bicycle
Club President Wanda Short
said recently her club stresses
safety at every opportunity.
"We know how vulnerable
we are," Short said earlier.
"But, our club members are
adults and sometimes adults
make bad choices."

The bird, no words
E-mail and letters either
dissing or praising the article
flew like bullets. Here is the
sum and substance of two of
them.
"They (bicycle riders) have
no consideration for any
one," one man wrote in a let-
ter. "Their motto (is; 'get out
of my way.' "
He also wrote, "God for-
give, don't blow your horn to
get around them. They give
you the American salute
(middle finger)."
One irate motorist made a
comparison between bicy-
clists who give the finger and
trained chimps or orang-
utans. He said the entertain-
ing primates also can be
taught to give the finger in
response to stimuli.
(Clyde the Orangutan flip-
ped off a motorcycle gang in
the 1978 film "Every Which
Way But Loose," starring Clint
Eastwood.)
The letters and e-mail
don't say it expressly, but one
motorist who has had a gut-
full of nrde bicyclists did he


said now that the law-break-
ing bicycle riders have been
outed, people are "mad as
hell, and they're not going to
take it anymore."
Stone age communicators
Bicycle riders rely on their
middle finger a lot. Some say
it shows their age, others say
it shows their IQ.
A reporter rolled down his
window to remind a lone
rider he sailed through a stop
sign and how that was dan-
gerous.
For his thank you, the re-
porter got the finger.
Another irate e-mail from
a man who was recendy sit-
ting at the intersection ofVen-
ice Avenue and Taniami Trail.
He was going to turn left in
front of the BP gas station and
go over the Venice Avenue
Bridge.
The light turned green and
he started to turn left when a
pack of 12-14 bicycles came
toward him. He thought they
would stop because he had
the green arrow. Instead, they
whipped to the right and rode
directly up the ramp toward
the bridge.
"Now, remember the sign
on the bridge ... all bikes will
be walked over the bridge.,
What a joke," he wrote. "I
started to drive over the
bridge and I blew my horn to
signal them that I wanted to
pass. They never moved at
all."
He said he started down
the ramp near the end of the
bridge.
"I blew my horn again
thinking they would move
out of my lane so I could pass
them. Well, about four or five
of the riders showed me what.
their IQ was.
"I drove into the other lane
and rolled down rhy windO,.
Three of the bike riders threw
me the bird again."
Understand 'STOP'?
Police said that bicycle rid-
ers who disobey stop signs
put themselves and motorists
at risk of injury or death.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 3A


SATURDAY. JAN. 15. 2005


Residents speak out on city services


SUN PHOTOS BY GREG GILES, ggiles@venicegondolier.com
John Osmulski, chairman of the Venice Planning Commission, helped facilitate an open forum
on City of Venice public services Wednesday at Village On The Isle. The meeting is part of a
series to elicit recommendations for the revision of the city's comprehensive plan.


The Envision Venice process continued
this week, with residents offering their opinions
on city services.


BY GREG GILES
SSTAFF WRITER

Residents young and bid
had a lot to say about city ser-
vices of all kinds Thursday.
"Education in Venice is
fair," said high school senior
Tommasina Miller. "But it's
not great. There's lots of room
for improvement. Too much


attention is paid to below-
average kids and not enough
to above average kids. School
facilities are old and outdat-
ed. And there isn't much to do
for kids in Venice."
"Somebody needs to syn-
chronize the downtown traf-
fic lights," said an elder.
"There's a critical need for
more affordable housing for


the working class," said a
middle-aged man. "They
don't have many options in
Venice."
Local businessman Tom
Miller said he sees a need for
housing for people living only
on Social Security.
And 'so it went Thursday
afternoon when 40 people
showed up at Village On The
Isle to give city staff their 2
cents on how to improve
public services.
The meeting was the latest
in a series of local Envision


Venice forums to get public
input on revising the city's
comprehensive plan.
'Great feedback'
Residents answered a
series of questions about edu-
cation, safety issues, health
care, and community identity.
"The interesting thing I've
seen at these meetings," said
planning commission chair-
man John Osmulski, host of
the forum, "is even with the
diverse participation we
have students, middle age
businessmen, retirees -
they all want the, same
things, albeit for the group
they represent. We're getting
great feedback."
The public is invited to a
final citywide open forum
on public services Tuesda,
Feb. 1, from 6-8:00 p.m. at
Grace United Methodist
Church. City staff will sum-
marize recommendations
received from the public in
January and give residents
another chance to comment
on the quality of Venice's
public services.
Other February forums will
address environmental and
open space issues like trails,
parks and recreation, coastal'
management and conserva-
tion. For a complete schedule
visit www.venicegov.com.

You can e-mail Greg Giles
at: ggiles@venicegondolier
com.

attending the Jan. 13 Envision Venice open forum. A citywide
forum on public services takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 1, from
6-8:00 p.m. at Grace United Methodist Church.

Cows getting replaced by shopping center


But one resident is arguing that the presence of
scrub jays should prevent a rezoning that would
allow construction at Laurel and Pinebrook roads.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Rolling fields, streams and
grazing cattle could be re-
placed by Starbucks, Home
Depot and Publix.
A rezoning petition for 65
acres at the intersection of
Pinebrook and Laurel roads
will be reviewed Tuesday by
the Venice Planning Commis-
sion. The intersection's south-
east corner is targeted for
400,000 square feet or more of
restaurant and retail space.
North American Properties
owns the land.'
"That whole area is going
to change so dramatically,"
Venice City Council member
Vicki Taylor said. "I hated to
see that farm sold. It was nice
to drive by and see the cattle
grazing."
The planning commission
meets at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at
city hall. Once commissioners
offer a recommendation, final
approval rests with city coun-
cil.
Whether it's within city or
county boundaries, the vacant
land surrounding the inter-
section of Laurel ard Pine-

brook roads is slated for devel-
opment: Sarasota County
eventually wants to extend
Pinebrook Road north until it
connects with Honore Ave-
nue, and there has been loose
talk of an affordable housing
development in the area.
One local resident is count-
ing on birds to halt those
shopping center plans.
Not so fast
The 65 acres has been tar-
geted as a commercial-retail
center by city planners for
years, according to future
land use maps, but Sorrento
Ranches homeowner Robert
Burrus has formally asked the
planning commission to deny
rezoning.
Burrus claims there are
Florida scrub jays nesting in
the area, and construction
would destroy their native
habitat.
There are no environmen-
tal impacts to animals, ac-
cording to the city staff re-
port. There are 3.6 acres of
wetlands that would be
cleaned up after being used by
cattle for years, another 4.25
acres added and 0.19 acres


created as upland habitat.
"Although planning staff
was made aware of known
scrub jay groups near the pro-
posed development, a (U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service)
scrub jay survey of the subject
,property apparently was nei-
ther required nor conducted
during DRC review," Burrus
wrote the planning commis-
sion. "It appears as though
the Venice planning staff does
not consider the Florida scrub
jay a protected species."
Identifying an area as a
scrubjay habitat does not
immediately prevent devel-
opment, but it does compli-
cate matters.
Burrus, president of the
Sorrento Ranches Homeown-
ers Association, was the lead
voice in a fight to get the 46-
acre, 151-unit Villa Lago de-
velopment sent back to staff
after city council refused to
vote on it. Villa Lago would
border Sorrento Ranches,
which has one home for every
five acres.
The shopping center would
almost be directly across the
street from Villa Lago off
Pinebrook Road.
Attorney Jeff Boone, who
represents North American
Properties, said Burrus had
better be able to prove his alle-
gations. Boone also represents
the developer of Villa Lago, so


he is familiar with his oppo-
nent.
"We will be interested to
hear at the planning commis-
sion meeting what evidence
Mr. Burrus has about scrub
jays," Boone said. "At this
point, he's interfering with my
client's development rights by'
making these claims, and we
would assume he has some
clear evidence to substantiate
these claims."
It makes sense
Council member Rick Tacy
is the ex officio to the planning
commission, And while he
doesn't have a vote Tuesday,
his opinion will be carried
back to council..
Building at that intersec-
tion makes sense, he said.
There are homes on the east-
ern edge of Laurel Road, a
growing industrial park next
to 1-75 and even more homes
planned heading west.
Tacy also has heard the
Publix grocery stores at the
western end of Laurel Road
and southern end of Pine-
brook Road both are near
capacity, and another grocery
store could help with compe-
tition.
"I'd much rather have a
shopping center that would
meet the needs of people both
on the east and west sides of I-
75 rather than another box

bly appealing."

SataCounty


Government closes for national holiday
All Sarasota County Government offices, including libraries and recreation
centers, will be closed Monday, Jan. 17, to observe the national holiday that
celebrates the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr
Sarasota CountyArea Transit (SCAT) will be on a normal bus schedule, as :
well as paratransit services. Only SCAT administrative offices will be closed.
The collection schedule for solid waste, yard waste and recyclables will not

History Center steps up to the

plate with "Play Ball!" exhibit
Weeks before players begin rounding the bases in this year's spring training :
games, fans can explore the rich history of baseball in a new exhibit at the
Sarasota County History Center. The public is invited to join the staff of the
History Center at an opening reception forthe exhibit "Play Ball! America's
Pastime in Sarasota County." The reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30
p.m., Friday, Jan. 21, at the History Center.
"Play Ball!" explores the role baseball played in the 1920s effort to market
Sarasota as a great place to visit and live. Payne Park opened in the spring of
1924 when the New York Giants arrived for spring training. Season tickets
sold for $11 and general admission (or viewing from the car) cost $5.50.
The exhibit will feature memorabilia and photographs of the teams thattrained
in downtown Sarasota's Payne Park (1920s-80s) including the New York
Giants, Indianapolis Indians, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and
Chicago White Sox; and in today's Ed Smith Stadium (White Sox and
Cincinnati Reds).
"Play Ball!" also looks at other people and places in the county's baseball ;
experience, including Sarasota's own John "Buck" O'Neil, a star in the Negro
Leagues and later a major league coach.
The exhibit will continue through May 27, 2005. Exhibit hours are 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, except

SLA to leave



past behind



in new year


;he charter school hopes new leadership will
rean a new beginning, but there are still
vanresolved legal issues with its former principal.


A
BY ANGELINE TAYLOR
STAFF WRITER


,rli After a year marked by
administrative in-fighting,
,parental concerns and legal
consultations, Student Lead-
:c)ihip Academy's staff, ad-
;iministration and board mem-
-Ilers are looking forward to a
-oew year and new leadership.
!U.u Vickie Marble, selected as
rqthe new principal for SLA in
December, said at Wednes-
3:diy's board meeting that par-
toeeats prepared the school dur-
ing winter break.
sv' "We got everything com-
,jpleted for the school to open,"
.Marble said as she thanked
. .them for their volunteer work.
-. Marble also added that
,,jome accountability changes
have been made, including
-qcdding time sheets for em-
ployees.
S A bigger responsibility for
s comes along in March,
_en SLA students, along
.i4th students throughout
Florida school districts, will
br taking the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test.
"That's really my primary


focus," Marble said. "This is
the first year the school will
get a grade and I want it to
be a good one."
Marble's report to the. SLA
board also included work to
incorporate character educa-
tion and fishing out any cur-
riculum needs.
"The past is over, we're
moving forward," said Norm
MacLellan, SLA board presi-
dent.
Unresolved
Although not discussed in
the board meeting, legal
issues may weigh heavily on
the new charter school. Nancy
Sanders, founder and former
school principal, had a legal
mediation with SLA represen-
tatives.
The goal was to address
Sanders' five-year contract
with the school. Tom Tram-
mell, SLA board vice presi-
dent, said nothing was re-
solved.
"There was no successful
mediation," Trammell said.
Trammell would not go
into detail regarding the case.
MacLellan told the board

its insurance policy has a
$5,000 deductible. Attorney
fees have already exceeded
that amount.
Sanders annual salary as
principal was $75,000 per
year. Her five-year contract
would total more than
$300,000. It is unclear -if that
amount was discussed dur-
ing mediation. The next legal
step regarding Sanders' con-
tract is also unclear.
The board did discuss
other financial payments
Sanders is requesting. She


located receipts in a desk
that total about $900. The
board decided to leave any
reimbursement decisions to
the school's bookkeeper.
"The bookkeeper needs to
make the determination,"
said Kym Elder, SLA board
member. "If there are ques-
tions about the validity (of
the receipts), we should then
make the determination."

confirmed.
ECC parents continue to
ask questions, and recurring
themes have popped up from
parents who have contacted
the Venice Gondolier Sun.
Specific incidents of vom-
iting, bathroom episodes and
"jacking" have continued to
swirl around DCF's investiga-
tion. One student demon-
strated "jacking" by reaching
underneath the arms of a
stuffed animal and slamming
the animal against a chair, a
parent said.
"Jacking was a form of dis-
cipline," said an ECC parent
whose child was part of the
investigation by DCE "(My
child demonstrated) with a
stuffed animal."
Some incidents were so
telling that DCF closed the
case with an "indication of
abuse."
"I paid a lot of money to
that school," said the parent.
"I feel as a parent they don't
want us talking to one anoth-
er."
DCF and police depart-
ment investigations often in-
terview individuals separately
to not corrupt testimony, said


one child care expert in the
field for 19 years. He preferred
not to speak on the record as
he has assisted some of the
children and families involv-
ed.
Parental meetings have
not been scheduled by the
child care center. The Rev.
Christopher Romig, however,
is aware of heightening con-
cerns by parents. He said ear-
lier this week that he looked
forward to the Venice Police
Department's findings.
"(The letter) seems very
ambiguous, and I look for-
ward to a more thorough
finding by Venice-Police De-
partment," Romig said.

Abuse, but no abuse?
In the letter dated Dec. 28,
2004, DCF acknowledged the
case was: "Closed with some
indication of abuse, neglect
or exploitation Other phys-
ical Injury/threatened harm
- failure to protect from
inflicted injury/neglect."
Then, in the next para-
graph, the letter states: "no
verified findings of actual
abuse, neglect or threatened
harm to any child at the Ven-
ice Presbyterian Early Child-
hood Center."


It may appear ambiguous
to some, but the child care ex-
pert explained the letter's
meaning.
"What they checked is
what we call 'the middle
ground,' he said. "There is
no clear and convincing evi-
dence. We rarely have that in
child abuse. Obviously, they
found something of con-
cern."
He believes the people "of
concern" are no longer affili-
ated with the center. Two ECC
employees were fired and Sue
Bensen, ECC's administrator,
resigned.
"It's better that those defin-
itive actions were taken," he
said. "The agency must be
happy with the end result."

Deja vu cases
DCF's private investigators
have a specific time period to
investigate such cases. Most
cases should not exceed 60
days, said former DCF Secre-
tary Jerry Regier when he vis-
ited Venice in May 2004.
According to Regier, when
he accepted the position in
2003 there was a backlog of
35,017 cases open for more

RIDERS from page 1A

Chances are slim that a
motorist would be seriously
hurt if a bicycle crashed into a


car, police said. However, the
motorist could be seriously
hurt or killed trying to avoid a
rider who ran a stop sign or
improperly changed lanes in


traffic.

AN ANNOTA TED HISTORY OF "THE FINGER"
Because the thousands of bicycle riders who violate traffic laws rely on their middle finger to commu-
nicate with motorists who dare to challenge them, a brief history of the raised middle finger is in order.
Giving someone "the finger" is one of the basest violations in modern culture, but its origins date back.
more than 2,500 years. The first written record of the insult occurred in andent Greece, where the play
wright Aristophanes made a crude joke mixing up the middle finger and the male sex organ. Even
then it was considered an aggressive put-down.
It has been argued by anthropologists that the finger is a variant of a classic "phallic aggressive" ges-
ture used by primates.
When the Romans imported the art, music and culture of the Greeks, the finger came along, too.
Roman Emperor Caligula, a pioneer in perversity, frequently shocked his citizens by forcing them to
kiss his middle finger instead of his hand. One of his subjects, Cassius, whom Caligula often taunted as
being too effeminate, finally had enough humiliation and assassinated him.
During the Middle Ages, the finger went underground. And, the Roman Catholic church frowned
upon its use because the middle finger was supposed to be holy in the Mass.
Still, the unholy insult lurked deep within the hearts of filthy-minded folks everywhere, hiding from
sight until the 19th century, when it began to crop up again.
In the immigrant mishmash of early 20th century America, the finger was the one symbol every man,
woman and dog could understand.
With the invention of the automobile, it could be delivered from behind the safety of glass and steel,
and at great speeds. All the finger needs to deliver its punch is a clear line of sight.
Since its humble beginnings, the finger has penetrated all levels of society. At a campaign stop for
Senator Bob Dole in 1976, Nelson Rockefeller was heckled by protesters telling him what they thought
of his Vietnam war policy by casting their middle finger votes. Rockefeller returned the sentiment
The Old Testament contains several warnings about the evil of the digits it just doesn't say which
digit.
Still, it might be well to err on the side of caution, and assume God disapproves of the finger.

NUMBERED from page 1A


Transportation will be doing
much more than just adding
another yield sign. This Sep-
tember, the state will com-
pletely redesign North Con-
fusion and add turn lanes as it
expands 2.5 miles ofTarfiiami
Trail from four to six lanes.
FDOT representatives will
meet with Lupo about bushes
and trees blocking the view of
oncoming traffic, said Chuck
Wood, project manager for
the U.S. 41 expansion. The
date has not been set, but the
goal is to make sure the visi-
bility problems are not re-
peated on the redesign.


There will be street lighting
where there is none, once the
project is finished, according
to FDOT.
"We're proposing to bid
this job out in May or June,
and then there will be a cou-
ple of months in getting the
contracts signed," Wood said.
The goal for completion is
two years.
Though Cactus Steak-
house is right in the middle of
North Confusion, Tsaoussis is
staying positive about two
years of construction next to
his parking lot. But he will
fight the state if it eliminates


his entrance on U.S. 41 By-
pass southbound.
"You've got to take the
good with the bad, no matter
what it is," said Tsaoussis,
who added that customers,
only have a hard time finding
the entrance their first time at
Cactus Steakhouse.

New bottleneck?
The most recent expan-
sion creates a bottleneck
heading into and out of Ven-
ice city limits, admitted Ven-
ice City Council member
Vicki Taylor, who sits on the
Sarasota/Manatee Metro-


politan Planning Organiza-
tion board. The MPO is a re-
gional planning agency that
develops transportation
plans and programs.
There isn't even state mon-
ey to buy land for the U.S. 41
Bypass expansion south of
Bird Bay Drive, let alone start
moving dirt.
"Unfortunately, that's go-
ing to be the situation for a
very long time," Taylor said.
"We're probably looking at 10
to 14 years before ground is
even broken."
The next three years will be
spent redesigning outdated by-


pass plans thatwere never used.
Development and soaring
land prices are the major
problems for FDOT, Wood
said. The state's goal is to
reduce the cost of buying
right-of-way land by redraw-
ing the boundaries, but U.S.
41 Bypass will basically use
the same footprint once it
becomes six lanes.
As frustrated Venice point
out, talk of expanding the
bypass has been going on for
20 years. Many doubt if the
latest set of design plans will
make a difference.
Wood said it will, even


though he could not predict
when dirt will move inVenice.
"It's not a job where we're
going to do the design work
on and then not follow
though with the construc-
tion," Wood said. "One of the
problems is the extraordinary
cost that goes with a project
of this nature.... We're doing
a re-evaluation to make sure
that we're doing the right
thing, the right corridor, and
we don't impact businesses or
residents."

EVICTION from page 1A
lands, complete with grazing
cows and a lake in the back-
ground. The nearby wilderness
is excellent habitat for wildlife.
When the grass gets higher
the snakes appear, said the
Colmans.
'Beyond the bounds'
During the fourth evacua-
tion of Lake Village in
'.,September, for Hurricane
SJeanne, Roger found what
.looked to him like a ven-
omous pygmy rattler. He
Skilled the snake and buried it.
After he told his wife about
it, she urged him to dig it up
so it could be properly identi-
'fied. Two days later he took
.,-the dead snake in a cookie
box to the manager's office for
the office staff to see. Over
their objections, he left the
Snake there.
SThe manager called the'
sheriff and the sheriff called
animal control, which deter-
mined it was a common, non-
poisonous red rat snake.
Police warned him he was
close to committing a crimi-
nal act and could have possi-
bly opened himself up to civil
liability if any of the person-
nel present during the inci-
dent had been injured.
- Shortly thereafter the park
sent the Colmans an eviction
notice based on the incident,


claiming the incident endan-
gered staff and residents.
"The community thinks
Mr. Colman's actions were be-
yond the bounds of human
decency," said park attorney
Jody B. Gabel.
Representing the Colmans,
Gulfcoast Legal Services Inc.
asked the park to drop the
eviction lawsuit. Lake Village
is continuing with that evic-
tion.
Elizabeth Boyle, managing
attorney for GLS, would like
the Colman case moved from
county to circuit court be-
cause it avails her client of
more rights of discovery, she
said.
"I think Lake Village's con-
duct toward our clients is a
disgrace," said Boyle. "These
are wonderful people who've
contributed much to their
country and community. I
wish Lake Village would reex-
amine and change its con-
duct."
Weeded out?
Last summer Dolores Bel-
lissimo, a 72-year-old widow
living on $836 per month,
received three letters request-
ing weeding and the removal
of improperly stored items
around her home. Bellissi-
mo's lot rental agreement in-
cludes grounds maintenance,
but that doesn't cover flower
boxes and a foot-wide per-

imeter surrounding each mo-
bile home.
Fearing eviction, she made
the effort to weed in spite of
hypertension and severe
arthritis among other ail-
ments all during a historic
hurricane season in which
the entire park had been
under mandatory evacuation
orders four times in six weeks.
She even received a letter
from the trailer park thanking
her for weeding. But the letter
encouraged her to complete
the other improvements or
face eviction.
Two weeks later Lake Vil-
lage brought an eviction law-
suit. Bellissimo contacted
GLS, which countersued on
her behalf for failure to ac-
commodate disability under
Federal Housing Administra-
tion rules.
Bellissimo's attorney be-
lieves this is a case of selective
enforcement of park rules.
"There is no difference be-
tween the way Ms. Bellissino
keeps her property and the
way'her neighbors keep their
property, yet she has been,


singled out for prosecution
on very minor issues," states
GLS in the countersuit. "The
court should not allow the
rules of the Lake Village Mo-
bile Home Park to be selec-
tively enforced against Ms.
Bellissimo."
Gabel said Bellissimo had
months to take care of the
problem, but didn't.
The parties are close to set-
tling, she said, with Lake Vil-,
lage offering to assist Bellissi-
mo in some form to complete
the clean up around her
home. But Bellissimo's attor-
ney says that's not good
enough. GLS wants the evic-
tion lawsuit withdrawn in its
entirety, saying it never
should have been filed.
Park manager Rose Mus-
tari, who filed the complaints,
had no comment on the
pending cases.
Conspiracy theory
While the Colmans can't
prove it, they are convinced
Lake Village is trying to push
them out for reasons unrelat-
ed to the snake incident.

"Mark my words," said
Roger, "there is a conspiracy
going on here. You watch.
When we leave here, Lake Vil-
lage will bulldoze this proper-
ty and put up a brand new
$94,000 double-wide."
"They try to put pressure
on owners of the older coach-
es," said Naomi. "Seems like
these single-wides are getting
the business."
Those accusations are
"completely unfounded," said
Gabel. "The Colmans have
raised that. In fact, I've been
informed that it is impossible
to put a double-wide in their
lot the way it's configured.
The setback requirements are
pretty tight now."
Having lost a lot of sleep
over the ordeal, the Colmans
have their home on the mar-
ket. Lake Village took down
their For Sale sign at the park
entrance.
"This eviction lawsuit-has
left a sour taste in my mouth,"
Naomi said.'

SATURDAY. JAN. 15. 2005


How smart is this?
A man started a fight with a
police officer in the lobby of
the police station, a Venice
Police Department report
shows.
Thomas W Shore, 57, 400
Clover Road, Venice, was
arrested and charged with
battery on a law enforcement,
officer, disorderly conduct,
resisting arrest with violence.
Bond is $1,220.
The incident happened in
the Venice Police Depart-
ment lobby, 1350 Ridgewood
Ave., Venice, at 2:05 p.m., Jan.
10.
According to the police
report, detective Eric Hill was
called to the front lobby be-
cause Shore was causing a
disturbance.
Shore was yelling and curs-
ing at the records clerks and
dispatchers.
When Hill got to the lobby,
Sgt. Mike Treanor was trying
to calm Shore down. Hill said
Shore's behavior toward Trea-
nor was getting more aggres-
sive.
Hill also was concerned
about the safety of a wheel-
chair-bound woman and her
husband in the lobby. Hill put
himself between Shore and
the woman in the chair.
Hill ordered Shore to step


back away from him.
That was not good enough
for Shore, who continued
screaming and cursing.
Then he pushed Hill.
Officer DanWhitaker, Trea-
nor and Hill put Shore under
arrest.
As they tried to put the
handcuffs on, Shore kept re-
sisting. Numerous times the
officers ordered Shore to stop
resisting.
Two more officers had to
be called to the lobby to re-
strain Shore so he could be
handcuffed.
Homeless vet jailed
A sheriff's deputy found a
temporary home for a
"homeless" veteran, Nicholas
G. Lucas, 55, 600 block Old
Englewood Road, Englewood,
at the South County Jail, a
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report shows.
The incident happened on
the Dearborn Street median
at State Road 776.
According to the police
report, Lucas was warned at
least twice by a deputy that it
was a county ordinance viola-
tion to solicit in the county
right of way.
Lucas was holding a sign
that read, "Homeless vet.
Anything helps. God Bless."

HOW SEALANTS ARE APPLIED
Sealants protect tooth surfaces from decay, especially with children.
The procedures used in applying sealants are simple, safe, and
completely painless. No local anesthesia is required. A liquid or gel is c
applied to the enamel for 60 seconds, etching it to a depth of a few
microns. (A micron is a thousandth of a millimeter) A liquid plastic is
placed over the etched surface. It seeps into all the jagged peaks and
valleys created by the etching.
Some sealants harden by themselves. Others are hardened by a high-
intensity fiber-optic ultraviolet light which is shined on the teeth like a
flashlight.l f the groove is, over filled, normal chewing and biting wears
off the excess material quickly. The material that had filled the depth of '
the pits and fissures is very strong and resistant to wear. Even when
the sealant has worn away it will remain deep in the crevices, sealing
and protecting the tooth from decay. Sealants are one reason why j
children have fewer cavities today.

Groups prepare for airport battle


FOP says city is playing with the numbers


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council mem-
ber Rick Tacy wasn't too sure
what he was watching Wed-
riesday during the airport
workshop.
Representatives from Venice
Neighborhood Coalition spoke
about the need to preserve
Venice's beauty and how airport
property should be for con-
servation, parks and recreation.
And then aviation support-
'ers and pilots lined up to talk
about the economic benefits
ofVenice Municipal Airport.
Turns out Tacy and other
city officials were witnessing
'the start of a battle between a
pair of community groups. In
its January newsletter, Venice
Aviation Society Inc. calls out
members of VNC as a "group
of people claiming to be civil-
minded" but "are seeking to
close the airport."
Tacy picked up on that
confrontational vibe.
"I have kind of gotten that
sense, after the Neighborhood
Coalition spoke on Wednesday
.,and then all the pilots got up
and talked about the benefits,"
STacy said.


Council passed a resolu-
tion several months ago stat-
ing the airport will not be
moved because it is a vital
part of the city.
"You've got seven (city
council) members sitting there
right now who've made it pret-
ty clear the airport's not
going anywhere," Tacy said.
War of words
VASI President Joseph
Rand's opening message in
the January newsletter sent
out a "Call to arms!" among
aviation supporters because
VNC's ultimate goal is to get
rid of the airport.
"They are obviously people
with short memories because
the airport was there when
they bought the house," Rand
wrote. "Now they are com-
plaining about the noise and
that is the reason that they
want to get rid of the airport."
The newsletter also en-
courages VASI members to
attend VNC meetings, gather
information and report it
back to VASI.
On VNC's online site, Earl
Quandt writes an essay about
how only.a joint effort can
quiet the jets at the airport.


ON THE ISLAND OF 1455 S.TamiamiTrail
VwMoE] WE WON'T BE 488-3667

UNDERSOLD!
=ll!^U^liAU lA


'Aircraft noise is a nuisance
that can be reduced outside of
the courts (without lawsuits) if
we maintain the resolve to pur-
sue our rights," Quandt wrote.
There are more than 150
members inVASI, and at least
nine homeowner associa-
tions are part ofVNC, accord-
ing to the groups' Web sites.
Vacant airport land
Development of the air-
port remains in hurry-up-
and-wait mode. Council will
take the next six to 12 months
to gather public input using
private consultants to deter-
mine what residents would
most like to see.
Council accepts that some
type of money-maker is need-
ed on the 125 undeveloped
acres along the Venice Intra-
coastal Waterway. By 2012-13,
current airport reserves will
be exhausted, putting that
budget back in debt.
"Everyone would love to
leave it the way it is," council
member Vicki' Taylor said.
"But the fact is, there is a need
for additional revenue."

The Fraternal Order of Po-
lice, Venice Lodge 57 is accus-
ing City Manager Marty Black
of manipulating the num-
bers.
That's a familiar theme.
Black made similar com-
ments Tuesday afternoon
when he said' negotiations
may have reached an im-
passe.
Union negotiators didn't
appreciate that, especially
with another bargaining ses-
sion at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.
"The lodge will not be in-
timidated by Mr. Black's veil-
ed threats of impasse," said
Paul Murphy, FOP represen-
tative. "If the city wishes to
declare impasse, that is its
prerogative. 'However, we
have met in the past and
negotiated in good faith and
we will continue to do so."
S FOP continues to invite the
public to this session at city hall.

being used when computing
'salary increases for Venice
police officers, according to
Murphy. The city's claim of a
56-percent pay increase the
past five years is actually the
five-salary steps for a new
police officer, he said.
The increase in each salary
step, however, is only 3 per-
cent each year, not enough
for union members who must
also start paying $40 per
month for health insurance
that used to be free, he said.
Venice's proposed starting
salary for a police officer is
$35,400 in the first contract
year and $36,750 the second
contract year.
Top-out salary is reached
within five years, and would
be $51,850 the first contract
year and $53,200 the second
contract year.
FOP members want larger
pay increases and to avoid
paying for health insurance
and contributing to its pen-
sion plan. Murphy did not
state the desired salary
amount union members
want.


y


Under terms of the expired
contract police continue to
work under, officers earn
$33,322 their first year and
$49,249 by their fifth year of
employment.
"What is concerning is that
the local unions continue to
fight this absurdity time and
time again," Murphy said.
"This is what the FOP must
contend with each time it sits
down at the negotiation table:
unsubstantiated conde-
scending offers, or lack there-
of."

Matthews-Currie Ford plans major expansion


The dealership will be investing several million
dollars to expand onto 9 acres recently acquired
to the north of its current location.

Looking south at the 9-acre property recently purchased by Matthews-Currie Ford.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST
The largest Ford dealership
in South County has an-
nounced plans to more than
double in size.
Matthews-Currie Ford, 130
North Tamiami Trail in
Nokomis, has acquired, 9
acres of commercial land
from neighboring Linsley
Enterprises, including the for-
mer TV shop and extending
north to just south of Addy's
Inn.
Partner and General Man-
ager Edward Beilen con-
firmed the dealership is seek-
ing county approval for its site
plan and will then go for
building permits. The project
is expected to take more than
two years.
"We will be spending sev-
eral million dollars," said Bei-
len.
The company began in
1971 where a Chrysler dealer-
ship is now located on U.S. 41


The best bank in Florida is

getting even better.


Business in South Venice,
moving a few years later to its
present location.
Beilen admits to being lim-
ited in the present 7-acre
location. Business is increas-
ing, so the dealership wants
to move to the next level,
where it can provide cus-
tomers with a more comfort-
able place to do business.
It has always been limited
by its geographic location,
and even at the moment it's
changing its showroom just
to keep people happy and for
employees to work efficiently,
said Beilen.
Future plans include a new
showroom, offices, service
department and "quickling,"
where customers can come in
without an appointment for a


quick oil change or tire rota-
tion and get a fast service; A
priority will be more concen-
tration on a big opportunity
in truck sales for personal and
commercial use.
"We've been fortunate-,as
we have .a good location and
business is increasing," said
Beilen.
The company plans to hire
more people in the long term.
Beilen said that since ,this
project has been going on he
has been contacted by several
local businesspeople who are
thinking of increasing the size
of their businesses, because
he believes everyone is start-
ing to see Nokomis is coming
into its own in a big way. :

OUR VIEW


What a difference a year makes


- or could make


T things are certainly different at Venice
City Hall in the 12 months since former
City Manager George Hunt resigned
and his deputy, Marty Black, was promoted.
'c Hunt was notoriously averse to publicity;
,,dBlack holds regular briefings for the press.
.4'Hunt preferred to let as little light as possible
I.'cshine on city problems; Black has been con-
.:fronting them more openly and directly.
:*Hunt had an antagonistic relationship with
StCity Attorney Bob Anderson and ,consulted
S.;him only when he was forced to; Black has
kept Anderson more in the loop.
A couple of the results of those changes
aand others are the numerous public meet-
-., ings and workshops, on everything from revi-
Sions to the city's comprehensive plan to the
mifuture of the airport, that have been held or
va re scheduled, and the disclosure of every

sewage spill, regardless of size.
Now, we're not so naive as to think our city
government no longer has any secrets. We still
don't know, for example, just what the En-
vironmental ProtectionAgencyhas on the city's
wastewater division, though we hear Black has
acknowledged that laws were broken.
On the whole, though, things seem to be
running much more the way people always
said they should have been under Hunt.
So maybe we're just being a bit paranoid by
expressing concern over the possible consoli-
dation of power in the city manager's office.
It's certainly good to have a city manager
who can be held more accountable for the
work being done by city staff. There is also
something to be said, however, for having a
division of some responsibilities, both to
keep workloads manageable and, more


important, to provide checks on any one per- power in Hunt's hands likely would not have
son's power. been a good idea.
What raised this particular red flag was the And it's not a better idea just because the
discussion at Tuesday's city council meeting current city manager is still riding a wave of
of doing away with the charter officer posi- popularity. Something as serious as amend-
tion of finance director in favor of making the ing the city's charter shouldn't be done based
job a position under the city manager. The, only on the people who would be affected by
change would require amending the city's it in the short term or, in this case, on the
charter, alleged difficulty of filling the position.
Now, we hold Black in high regard, and not No doubt Black will have a distinguished

BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

As United Way Campaign
chair, I have met a lot of great
-people who want to make a
difference to some 24 different
agencies that serve South
County. That happened twice
STuesday.
--fsFirst were the folks at Bay
Indies. They have for as many
years as I can remember
lidised money for United Way.
iThis is no casual commit-
ment. It came originally from
the owners of the park. Their
eolnmitment is one with a
great deal of enthusiasm and a
great deal of involvement.
I was sitting on the porch
..hV- campaign chair Bob
:rimmin and lMar Huskey,
executivee director of United
~Jay. going over the incredible
.iay this community marshals
:ts citizens to raise money for
:.ch good. There are no less
Than 100 people involved in
:this effort.
-* There are zone leaders who
,-uperise street captains who
.-'o door to door answering
,,quesdons about United Way
.nd collecting money. Many
peoplee. like Jay Ouxt, Ben
'onavan, Julian IcFarland
id Doug Stewart. have put
:ears into running these cam-
i-,aigns and making this effort
'; -Pch a success.
:; Last sear Bay Indies gave
:4lore than $15,000 and this
..ear it is striving for $16,500,
;.ie most of any group other
S;than Publix.
SIt seems to me that they
:iave something that not a lot
"f neighborhoods or commu-
'.ities have: community spirit.
:hey truly love their sur-
.pundings, their friends and
r community.
I-What is happening here is
what Gulf Coast Community
SFoundation ofVenice was talk-
ing about last year: social cap-
:ital. These people are in-
volved, and that is what social
capital is all about.
The Plantation community
ges a similar thing with its
foundation. Now the big chal-
letge is, how can we develop
rmre communities with this
kind of spirit?
The other meeting I attend-
ed for United Way was an
employee meeting at Arrow

Stasic company run by George
Pichd ardt. This company has
..wot Business of the Year
awards because it has great

The group of us weighed
9,506 pounds, with an amaz-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Religion isn't a matter of majority rule


Editor:
While the letter from Anne Graf was scholarly and well doc-
umented, it ignored the basic principles of our pluralistic
democracy.
The freedom seekers who founded our nationwere escap-
ing the rigid theocracies of Europe that allowed only one reli-
gion to be observed theirs. In our greatest of all democracies
we allow and encourage total freedom of religious choice, or no
religious observance at all.
Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, George Washington,
Thomas Paine, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison were
the primary scholars who framed our democratic principles
and documents. None was a Christian. They were Deists.
Democracy and humanitarian principles require fair and
equal treatment of all our citizens. That is not true in a theoc-
racy or any society or government that endorses one belief over
others, even if that belief is the majority opinion.
Iran and other countries that have theocracies do not allow
any public expression of dissent from the majority opinion.
Adolf Hitler was a religious man who hated other religions
and opinions. I fought him and Hirohito from 1942 to 1945. I
fought for true democracy and freedom of choice for all
Americans, and the world.

City council not for sale
Editor:
I expected a rebuttal to my
rebuttal from Ed Martin. I was
'surprised that he pulled his
punches as much as he did. I
expected a much more harsh
response than he made. So,
while I think Ed is misguided
in believing that your mem-
bers of Venice City Council
are guilty of the same political
behavior as his Washington
associates, he has demon-
strated that he is a gentleman.
This rebuttal to the rebut-*
tal to the rebuttal is my last
word on the matter. Your
council members are not
compromised by a few bucks
in campaign contributions.
Neither are they compro-
mised by the support of a PAC
consisting mostly of mem-
bers who expect no favors
from council and would not


tolerate any ,PAC member
soliciting favors.
This council is made up of
elected residents doing their
best for this wonderful city,
which they love dearly. Not
one of them would ever vote
for anything, no matter who
proposed it, they believed
was not best for Venice.
Ed, I look forward with
bated breath to your rebuttal
to the rebuttal to the rebuttal

Catastrophe, calamity, apocalypse: Mother Nature rages


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST

Mother Nature's fury bog-
gles the mind.
In the last 100 years slight-
ly more than 10 million peo-
ple died worldwide because
of drought, Almost 7 million
were swept away by floods.
Earthquakes took almost 2
million and wind storms just
more than 1 million. Volcano-
es at 96,000 and landslides at


54,000 come in last on the list
of natural disasters, accord-
ing to The NewYork Times.
We are horrified at the
150,000 deaths in the Dec. 26
tsunami. Yet in 1931 China
lost 3.7 million in floods, and
28 years later 2 million more
were gone. An earthquake
took 242,000 in China in 1976.
Add injuries and property
loss and the toll is even more
difficult to grasp.
We are beginning to take
Mother Nature more serious-
ly when we build. Using our
stronger, scientific building
codes, We see positive results
in Port Charlotte. Building to
sustain earthquakes adds
about 5 percent to the cost,
according to GeoHazards In-
ternational.
We can't blame Mother
Nature if we don't build prop-


early, or build in places that are
too dangerous.
A tsunami is international
in its effect. Only 32 hours
after the earthquake struck
Sumatra a gauge at Port Ca-
naveral, Fla., recorded 13.4-
inch waves. This wave had
traveled west across the In-
dian Ocean, around Africa,
and up past the coast of
South America.
Of course, a 13.4-inch
wave would be practically im-
perceptible to residents along
the Florida coast, but these
recordings will improve comh-
puter simulations and per-
haps help mitigate our own
potential catastrophe that lies
directly opposite Georgia,
across the Atlantic, in the Ca-
nary Islands.
Las Palmas, one of the
islands, is very unstable and it


is thought a landslide or
earthquake there might cause
a tsunami that would devas-
tate the east coast of America
- including Florida. The pro-
jection is for a 300-foot wave
traveling 200 mph hitting
North West Africa, and a 40-
foot wave hitting New York
City.
The California Monterey
coast and the outer edge of
the east coast's continental
shelf also appear to be prone
to similar cave-ins. Our histo-
ry gives evidence of this dan-
ger.
Earthquakes in Alaska pro-
duced tsunamis that hit Hilo,
Hawaii, in 1946 and 1960,
killing 220. As a result fewer
people now live along the
waterfront.

LET 'EM HAVE SHOULD THE CITY DO AWAY WITH THE FINANCE DIRECTOR AS A CHARTER OFFICER POSITION? CALL US AT 207 -


Let's send beach renourishment money to tsunami victirim


Right thing. In this day and age we need to treat all countries
as if they are our own. Going down to the local level, it would
be a great gesture for the city ofVenice to give up the money for
beach renourishment. It should be earmarked and sent to Asia.
We do not need beach renourishment. It is not a necessity. We
should not be so greedy. We should build goodwill throughout
the world. It is time for Marty Black to do the right thing.


No coveting. First of all, let
me say that those at the

excellent job, and those I have

No sense. I was pleased to
hear that Jeb Bush would be
part of the team visiting the
tsunami destruction. Hope-
fully he will learn a lot to pro-
tect the people of Florida.
Most Florida residents did not
need a trip to the Far East to
see the cause of the destruc-
tion. TV coverage made clear
that crowding people onto
low-lying coastal areas is risky
business.
Actually, Floridians have
been telling political leaders
for years that high densities in
coastal areas without ade-
quate evacuation routes don't
make sense.
Typical men. I was reading
the first letter to the editor
regarding abortion and the
writer is a male, of course.
Every time I read something
against abortion, it is a male
talking. Females know it is

read about how bad abortion
is and it is a male talking. I
also love Lorraine Cocarro's
column. We are lucky to have
her in this town.

COCCARO from page 12A


Prevention is so much
cheaper than reconstruction.
The New York Times describ-
ed a study by Tearfund, a
Christian relief agency: "Ac-
cording to the study, Mozam-
bique, anticipating major
flooding in 2002, asked for
$2.7 million to make basic
emergency preparations. It
received only half that
amount from international


donor organizations. After
the flood, those same organi-
zations ended up committing
$550 million in emergency
assistance, rehabilitation and
reconstruction financing."
During the second Clinton
administration a good idea
was floated, according to Le-
on Fuerth, professor of inter-
national affairs at George
Washingtbn University. He


recently wrote in The New
York Times that a number of
officials, including the CIA,
approached him "to establish
a 'fusion center' for informa-
tion about natural disasters
that would not only compile
data but also stimulate re-
search on forecasting."
Vice President Gore was
interested. Work was begun on
a Global Disaster Information


Network and a "low-tech test'
model" was usedto coordinate
information about Hurricane
Mitch in 1998. Other projects
were started but were "eventu-
ally extinguished for political
reasons." Gore was running for
president and Congress was
Republican controlled.
Looking at the number of
lives lost in the past 400 years,
it should be obvious how


important the expansion of
the Global Disaster Informa-
tion Network is. Research
should be increased and more
warning systems established.
Stronger building codes and
limiting building to safe sites
can make a difference. We
need proactive strategies.
Many lives, including ours,
may depend on it. This is a
much more constructive use


of our tax money than ef
after the catastrophe.

much of the inform n
came from a forward -

Guthrie giving

it another go


Former Venice High pitch-
ing standout Mark Guthrie
will give it one more shot.
Guthrie, a veteran of 15
Major League seasons, signed
a minor league contract with
the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on
Thursday.
Pitchers and catchers will
report to Devil Rays training
camp Feb. 17. at the Naimoli
Complex. Home spring train-
ing games are at Progress
Energy Park at Al Lang Field
in St. Petersburg.
This will be Guthrie's sec-
ond go-round with the D Rays,
as he previously pitched for
them in 2000.
He has thrown for seven
Major League teams after
coming out of Louisiana State
University.
Guthrie was released by
the Pittsburgh Pirates during
spring training last year. He
had a number of rocky out-
ings and was let go just be-
fore the team broke camp.
Guthrie had rotator cuff
surgery shortly afterward and
has been working to get him-
self back to pre-2004 form.
Guthrie had impressive
back-to-back seasons in long
relief in 2003 and 2003 pitch-
ing for the New York Mets
and Clicago Cubs. He had
an ERA, of 2.44 with the Mets
and 2.74 with the Cubs.
Guthrie, now 39, has a 51-
54 record and a 4.05 ERA in
765 games.
Guthrie, who graduated
from Venice High in 1983, is a
member of the Venice Sports
hall of Fame-

The Venice High .girls
weightlifting team came
through with a supereffort in
its biggest test of the season
so far.
Venice finished first out of
four schools competing in
Wednesday's Sub-Section 8
Meet held at Sarasota High.
The top three individuals
in each of the 10 weight class-
es advance to the Section 8
Meet, which will be held Jan.

meet.
Venice finished with 45
team points. Host Sarasota
was right behind with 43.
Booker was third with 25.
Riverview was last with 17.
"We beat three schools
because we're stronger, not
because we fill weight classes

its fourth straight game
Thursday night, hammering

The Indians (6-7) opened
the season with two wins, lost
seven straight, but have now
righted the ship.
Coach Tom McLaughlin
called Thursday's \in a total
team effort.
"We had 10 people score,"
the veteran coach said. "We're
taking care of the ball. We're
passing well and spacing
better."
The scoring was about as
balanced as it can get. Point
guard Ariel Bonilla had 'a
dozen points, center Dexter
Jackson had 11, shooting
guard George Stritz 10, for-
ward Steve Stasko nine and
forwards Kyle Abney and
Kalen Lyons seven apiece.


Venice had five individuals

Tobie Daniels won at 101
pounds with 70 pounds in the
bench, 65 in the clean and
jerk for a total of 135. Taylor
Howell won at 110 pounds
with her 110-125-235. Shelbi
Johnson took 139 pounds
with 130-125-245. Courtney

Lady Indian seconds were
recorded by Courtney Tomlin
(105-90---195 at 119 pounds)
and Mellisa Graf (105-95-200

Howell a lifting dynamo


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Dynamite can come in
small packages.
Taylor Howell stands only
5-feet, one-inch tall and
weighs only 110 pounds.


Taylor Howell


Yet when it comes to the
sport of weighdifting, she is a
giant.
Howell canlift more than
she weighs a remarkable
feat in itself. The junior tops
out at 115 pounds in the
bench press and 125 pounds
in the clean and jerk.
High school wrestling
combines the weight in each
event, putting Howell at 240.
That total puts her among the
best in the state among 110-
pound lifters.
In Wednesday's Sub-
Section Meet held at Sara-
sota High, Howell took a first
place to advance to the Jan.
29 Section Meet at LaBelle
High. She is the favorite to
win her weight at that meet
and move on to the State
Finals Feb. 12 in DeLand.
"I'm not sure how I'll do,"
Howell said. "There's a lot of


strong girls out there."
Howell was second at last
year's sectional meet. She
went on to place 16th at the
State Meet.
Howell credits gymnastics
with helping her strength.
"I was in gymnastics from
age 6 to 13," she said. "I also
did dance tap, jazz, ballet,
lyrical, hip-hop."
Howell never lifted weights
until she was a freshman.
"My friend Coquina (Bel-
ligan) was on the team,"
Howell said. "She said they
were looking for a light-
weight. I decided to come
out. Coach T (Nancy Tessier)
taught me technique. It
doesn't look like much, but
you have to do a lot of things
the right way for it to be a
good lift."

Ladies win on Senior Night


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High girls soc-
cer team celebrated Senior
Night in style Friday night,
clicking on all cylinders in an
8-0 rout of Port Charlotte at
Powell-Davis Stadium. ,.
Venice improved to 7-11
overall and 3-5 in Class 5A
District 11, while Port Char-
lotte fell to 5-10-1 and 0-8.
Seniors Jenna Ferretti, Liz
Walchle and Holly Martin
were, honored before the
match and contributed to the
win. Another senior Marie
Gaona was injured in' a
recent auto accident and
couldn't play.
In their first meeting in
Port Charlotte, Venice only
won 2-0. With five players out
sick Friday, the Lady Pirates


were no match for Venice.
"We, were missing players
at midfield and our stopper
wasn't here," Port Charlotte
coach Tom Tirb said,
"We had good communi-
cation, good ball control and
we finished welll" Venice
coach Allen Pfundmer said.
Finishing the best was
junior striker Kristen John-
son, who scored four straight
goals in the first half. Fab-
ulous freshman sweeper
Kristina Swanson also had a
whale of a night with two
goals. Her header of a John-
son comer with 6:45 remain-
ing ended the match. Ferretti
and anelle Cbyle also scored.
Venice plays at home
Tuesday night against Lemon
Bay. The Lady NMantas won
the first meeting in Engle-
wood earlier this season.


Weedo a big catch for Vikings


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

To his teammates, he may
be known as Tom Cruise.
The Venice Viking coaches
are glad he's just plain old
Aaron Weedo.
Actually, Weedo is far from.
plain and at 22 he's certainly
not old.
The Vikings will be count-
ing on another big season
from the talented wide re-
ceiver out of Port Charlotte as
they prepare for their second
year in the Southern States
Football League.
The season opener is Sat-
urday night, Jan. 22, at
Powell-Davis Stadium against
the expansion Bradenton:
Gladiators.
Weedo caught 30 passes
and scored six touchdowns
last year for the Vikings.
Weedo, who was a stand-
out at Port Charlotte High
before accepting a scholar-
ship to play for Navy, is hop-
ing the Vikings can build on
their first season when they'
finished with a record of 3-7.
"Our first year, we got to
know each other and try to
build some cohesiveness," he
said. "Now we have a team.
Now it's time to win. Not
many people talk about a 3-7
team."
The Vikings suffered grow-
ing pains, especially on of-
fense. There was a mid-sea-
son quarterback change and
a switch in offensive strategy
from a run-oriented to a
passing attack.


This year, offensive coordi-
nator Chris Derby is employ-
;ing a spread offense to get the
most out of all the talent on
the field.
A big part of the offense
will be Weedo, who has good
hands, good speed and is not
afraid to take the ball over the
middle.
"In college, they hit you
hard, but here they try to take
your head off," he said.
Weedo played on playoff
teams at Port Charlotte un-
der coach Ray Hixson. He
played with Tony Hargrove,
who is now a starting defen-
sive end with the St. Louis
Rams. He then decided to
attend the Naval Academy in
Annapolis. He played on the
scout team as a freshman
and, was ready to make an
impact as a sophomore but
he fell short on grades.
"My mistake was that I
tried to play baseball too, and
it was just too much," he
said. "If I had to do it over
again I wouldn't have played
baseball."
Last fall, Weedo heard
about a new minor league
football team forming out of
Venice. He went out for a try-
out two weeks before the
season began.
"Coach (Skip) Poole said
come out and we'll see what
you've got," Weedo said. "He
threw me in with the wolves.
It was mixed. There were
some guys who had some
ability and some guys who
just loved the game."
It didn't take long forWee-

Aaron Weedo

do to establish himself as one
of the Vikings' top players.
Weedo is still interested in
taking his game to another
level. He has an upcoming
tryout with the Fort Myers-
based Florida Firecats of
Arena Football League 2.
"I've tried out for the
Storm and Predators before,"
Weedo said of the successful
AFL franchises. "I thought I
did well in the Storm tryout. I
caught all the balls and had
fast times. They made me run
the 40, the shuttle, do the long
jump and push ups. The
Firecats heard about me from
the Storm. I think I have a
shot."
A successful season in
2005 with the Vikings can
only help Weedo is his quest
to play indoors or in Canada.
"I love football," he fin-
ished.

Tarpons tumble after



string of Venice pins


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Wednesday night's wrest-
ling dual meet was close ... for
awhile.
The visiting Charlotte Tar-
pons built a seemingly com-
fortable lead with four wins
after the first six matches.
But a string of victories in
the upper weight classes,
including three first period
pins, brought Venice High
back and then some. The
Indians went on to win seven
of the final eight matches.
In the end, the Indians,
ranked fifth statewide, gave
the Tarpons, ranked 10th
statewide, an old-fashioned


whoopin' 42-21.
The win put Venice's dual
meet record at 6-2. Charlotte
fell to 3-3.
Randy Re began the home
crowd buzz when he pinned
his opponent in the second
period at 160 pounds.
That was followed by first
period pins by Zach Gau-
dreau (171), captain Jeremie
Cook (189) and heavyweight
Anthony Saputo. Viktor Vasi-
levskiy (215) won by decision.
Other wins by Indians mat-
men were by Corry Ritten-
house (technical fall at 103)
Matt Rossheim (119), Keith
Koziel (130) and Kyle Keefe
(140). Koziel's solid 12-7 win at
the 130 pound weight class


was notable. It was only the
second match of the evening,
but the win over Tarpons' cap-
tain Aaron Hysell gave the
Indians a moral boost and
seemed to take the air out of
Charlotte.
Koziel slowly wore down his
.opponent with constant pres-
sure until it seemed Hysell
had all but given up. Hysell,
feigning exhaustion, rallied
with a last minute spurt of
energy but it wasn't nearly
enough.
Venice coach Dan Kelly
said Tyler Spann gave the
team a big lift in the opening
bout at 125. Although Spann
lost 6-3, he wrestled tough
against unbeaten Charlotte


Not a stalker, just a jogger


I'm not lingering right
behind you as you run, really.
It just seems that waybecause
your pace is slightly faster
than mine.
Those were my concerns
last weekend for about a mile
along the Venetian Intra-
coastal Waterway trail. A fe-
male jogger came onto the
bike path a short distance
ahead of me, and I felt this
awkward need to speed up
and jog next to her, speed up
even more to pass or slow
down so there was more
space between us.
As it was, my brain wasn't
working quite right 9 miles
into a 15-miler, and I simply
wondered about the proper
jogging etiquette until she
stopped for a walk break and I
passed her.
Yet, I was left with the
thought she never wanted to
take a walk break. That was
just her way of getting some
laboring, heavy-breathing
jogger out from right behind
her.
Perhaps it's the strange
times we live in creating this

my path a couple of days
later.
Of course, I didn't have
enough time to contemplate
the proper course of action.
He passed and had a good
quarter mile on me before I
formed a coherent thought.

Don't know that there's a
manual on proper manners

gender joggers. I tried asking,
my girlfriend for her opinion,
but she's not a jogger and

5:30 a.m. for a 15-mile run
"is just insane."
Guess I'll count on fellow
joggers, to offer suggestions.
Speeding up for side-by-
side Wouldn't this look like
I was trying to hit on her? And
even more so if I say, "Don't
worry. I'm not hitting on you."
Passing I still had
another 6 miles to go, and
that pace would've been just
a bit too fast. Besides, is this
inclination inspired by a
woman being faster than me?
Slowing down Hey, I've
got my own training pace to
do here. Should I let my own
paranoia about someone
else's potential paranoia in-
fluence how fast I decide to
run?

SPORTS EDITOR


Anyone who has watched
the Road Warriors at Charlotte
County Speedway will tell you
its one of the most exciting
divisions at the Punta Gorda
paved oval.
The machinery is relative-
ly inexpensive compared to
other divisions. There are lots
of cars. And the drivers put on
quite a show shaking, rattling
and rolling their way around
the track.
Believe it or not, there are
some women who have taken
to racing in this rough-and-
tumble division.
For the past couple of
years, fans have watched
Anne Marie Ricardi work her
way from an also-ran to a
contender.
There are a couple of new
ladies on the scene adding to
the mix.
One Milena Firestine -
has shown that she can keep
up with the guys despite not
having a lot of experience at
CCS.
In this past Sunday's 25-lap
feature, Firestine placed a re-
spectable sixth out of 27 cars

competing. It was Firestine's
fourth race at Charlotte
County Speedway.
"I raced in three Road War-
rior races and one Enduro at
Punta Gorda," said the 28-
year-old Firestine. "Sunday
was my 10th race. I raced
Bombers at DeSoto. The sixth
time I raced there, I won."
Firestine hasn't had a whole
lot of luck at Charlotte County
Speedway.
"The last two times on the
track, I had really bad acci-
dents," she said. "This time
the race was touch and go.
There were a lot of accidents.
Thankfully, I wasn't in any of
them. I was a little loose and
I spun out but was able to
come back up through the
field."
Firestine enjoys mixing it
up :ith the gujs. 'It' contact
sport," said Firestine, who dri-
ves the orange No. IX Monte
Carlo. "At Punta Gorda, it's
stop and go. You don't only
have to worry about your car
and the track, but the other
cars. DeSoto's easier. You'don't
have to brake as much."
Firestine never thought
once about racing until she

"I had no idea about any-
thing," she said. "I met Jeff
and I fell in love with him,
mechanics and racing. In July
2003 he put me in an Enduro
car. It was a Chevy Malibu. I
came in 11th. I was hooked
ever since."
Her husband is an accom-
plished racer who has given
just about every division a try.
He even ran in the Outlaw
Figure 8 race last Sunday at
Charlotte County, finishing
12th in a 27-car field. Jeff will
be racing in the Fastruck
series for the fourth straight
year.
Milena is a hairdresser by
day, but doesn't hesitate to
stop by the garage and work
on the car.
'I have to scrape under my
fingernails with a brush," she
said. "We work hard and put
in a lot of hours during the
week. On weekends, it's great
to go out racing. It's a great
release."

Cracks appear in sidewalk program


South County moves down the list
of projects, and may not see any new sidewalks
for as long as three years.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


A decision by Sarasota
County commissioners Wed-
nesday may leave South
County off the sidewalk pro-
gram list for at least the next
three years.
And when the list comes
back before the board, com-
missioner Shannon Staub
intends to vote against it.
"I can't in good conscience
vote for a program when
nothing south of Clark Road
with the exception of Garden
Elementary in Venice gets
constructed," said Staub, who
represents South County on
the commission. "I under-
stand the program and the
criteria, ,but it's a situation of
too many needs and not
enough money."
On Wednesday, commis-
sioners considered a list of
nine reprioritized sidewalk
projects that would be con-
structed over the next three
years at a cost of $15.4 mil-
lion. The list resulted from a
discussion by
commission-
ers last July as
they set new
criteria to try
to gain better
efficiencies
from the pro-
gram.
Molly
Williams, the Staub
program
coordinator, told commis-
sioners that previously, the
request-driven program often
resulted in a constantly
changing priority list leading
to an inefficient program.
By constructing segments of
sidewalks at the same time
in a regional fashion, the
county hopes to lower the
cost while building more
sidewalks faster.
"We were not creating a
network," said Williams. "We
would just fix one segment,
then come in later and do
another and continue to dis-
turb neighborhoods. We lack
a network to get from point
A to point B. That's the intent
of this approach."
One out of nine
Staub fears that when the
revised list
comes back,
segments of
16 streets in
the area sur-
rounding
Englewood
Elementary, a
total of 7.14
miles, will no
Mills longer occupy
the 10th posi-
tion on the- list, sufficient
before, Wednesday to gain
that project $750,000 for
design work. ,
"I understand the reason,
but out of nine, only one is in
Central or South County,"
Staub said. "We've always
tried to be geographically
balanced with the program
and Englewood Elementary
has been trying forever.":
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton, who represents Central
County, sympathized with
Staub, but criticized the crite-
ria, suggesting that too much
emphasis was given to side-
walks around schools and
not enough to those for
shopping or employment.
But commissioner David
Mills said sidewalks near
schools was the heart of the
program.
"We wouldn't have had a
sidewalk program if it weren't
for the schools when we
started this in 1991 or '92,"
Mills said. "Like our sewer
program, we're still trying to
retrofit things."
In tweaking the criteria to
develop the project list, com-

missioners agreed to give

near places of work and those,
that aided access to public
transit.


Williams said the revisions
would result in some changes
to the list, which she will
bringback to the commission
for consideration on a future
consent agenda.

and wise

STORY BY NICOLE NOLES STAFF WRITER

Followers of the ancient principles of Feng Shui believe clothing and
accessory choices can affect their lives for good or bad.


Dress for success with
Feng Shui.
Your wardrobe choices can
enhance your personal ener-
gy, or ch'i, especially when
you dress with a particular
goal in mind. For starters,
always buy the best quality
and :most comfortable
clothes you can afford. This
helps you attract more
wealth. If you dress poor with
uncomfortable clothes full of
holes, it reflects in your men-
tal attitude and the way peo-
ple treat you. Undergarments
represent your foundation
(think support) so don't feel
guilty about buying the best
you can afford, even if only
you see them.
For people going n job
interviews, consider thL fol-
lowing color choices. Black is
the color of career, because it
represents the color of water.
Blue, red and purple are
wealth colors.
A good interview combi-
nation would be black for
career success with one of the
wealth colors for a decent
salary. Red is considered a
lucky color as well.
Accessorize with jewelry
featuring turtles, because the
turtle is the totem animal for
career; Think of the turtle
(career) swimming in the
water (wealth and career),
Another choice would be to
wear your most expensive
jewelry, especially; gold or
coin-shapes.
An excellent wealth cure is
to wear a 24-carat gold coin,


such as a Liberty Dollar;
Need more help from col-
leagues or your lawyer? Wear
helpful people colors of gray,
white or black (yes, some col-
ors do double duty). Silver is
an upgraded version of gray,
so accessorize with sterling
silver jewelry. Or choose jew-
elry with heavenly motifs like
angels or religious medals to
signify assistance from heav-
en.
To enhance health, wear
beige, yellow or green (the
color of healthy growing
plants). Accessorize with
ceramic beaded jewelry. For
love, wear a combination of
red, pink or white. Avoid
dressing completely in white
however, because this is the
color of mourning for the
Chinese. Peach is also an
acceptable color to attract
love, but once you have a rela-
tionship, stop dressing in this
color as it invites what is
termed "Peach Blossom
Luck" or a straying partner,
either by cheating or leaving
the relationship.
Accessories to attract love
can include hearts, especially
double hearts, double rings,
or break-apart charms that
are divided between two peo-
ple like the miz-pah.
Claddaugh jewelry sym-
bolizes faith, hope, friendship
and love. On a ring, the point
of the heart should face out
for single people, and on
committed people the heart
should face in.
Suggested gemstones for


love are garnet, ruby, pink
sapphire (all love colors), jade
(for fidelity) or a combination
of birthstones to symbolize
each partner. For people who
wear anklets, wearing the
anklet on the right foot adver-
tises availability, the left foot
indicates you are committed.
To enhance your ch'i in
academic pursuits such as
tests, wear the colors blue,
green or black.
Jewelry should reflect the
subject of study. For instance,
nursing students could wear
the caduceus (two serpents
winding around the staff of
Hermes) or charms with
medical apparatus.
Avoid syringes or anything
pointy that could be consid-
ered a weapon.
A beautiful affirmation for

the high school senior is a gift
of graduation jewelry in the
beginning of the year to sym-
bolize the future attainment
of a diploma. High school
rings also serve this purpose.
A little intention can go a
long way when it comes to
dressing for success. As you
dress for a particular occasion
or with a particular goal in
mind, affirm to yourself that
each item adds to the success
of your goal. Visualize the goal
you have in mind as well.
Put Feng Shui in your fash-
ion and seize the day!

Too good to be true? Not all



Blockbusters kill late fees


BY DANA HELSTROM
STAFF WRITER

Blockbuster has been
heavily marketing the "end of.
late fees," its TV commercials
depicting multitudes of grate-
ful movie renters, but is it all
too good to be true?
It depends on which
Blockbuster you visit.
Blockbuster corporate
stores and Blockbuster fran-
chises are not unlike syn-
onyms. They look the same,
but have different plans for
customers and don't have to
abide by all the same promo-/
tional events.
Many local franchises
choose not to take part in the
end-of-late-fees program.
One of the few area Block-
busters offering the end of
late fees program is the North
Port store at 1151 S. Sumter
Blvd.
"I think we are the only one
doing it," said Val Ellis, one of
the shift leaders at the North
Port Blockbuster. "Sarasota,
stores are doing it, but I think
Venice' and Port Charlotte'
(stores) are all franchises."
Blockbusters located in
Port Charlotte (1900 Tamiami
Trail, 1978 Kings Highway,
and 13435 South McCall
Road), Punta Gorda (2310
Tamiami Trail), and Venice
(1649 Tamiami Trail, 4153
South Tamiami Trail, and 478
U.S. 41 Bypass), aren't involv-
ed in the promotion, their

Wow! Did you see the won-
derful full-page spread on the
Expo in Wednesday's Venice
Gondolier Sun?
It is the program of ex-
hibitors who will have booths
and drawings at the South
Venice Beach Expo today 9
a.m.-3 p.m. at the South
Venice Community Center,
720 Alligator Drive.
You will enjoy visiting with
the 35 exhibitors who are at
the Expo to showcase their
products and services to the
greater South Venice resi-
dents. Some of the drawings
are exceptional: four dinner
cruise tickets, a magnetic
blanket, gift certificates to
restaurants, Tervis Tumblers,
CD player, computer class,
free lube, oil and filters, a
toaster oven, solid cutting
board, six months free pest
control, gift baskets of excep-
tional value and many,other.
prizes as well.
Public will again have the
food court. Another attraction
is the Edgewood Nursery dis-
play of fresh plants, shrubs
and trees that will decorate
the hall and also be available
for, sale at discounted prices.

representatives said Friday.
"Only corporate stores
(have to participate)," Ellis
said. "Privately owned (Block-
busters) go by some corporate
(programs), but have choices
(on programs in which they
wish to take part)."
Even at participating
stores, the "end of late fees"
doesn't mean you can keep a
movie or game indefinitely.
The program simply gives
customers a little leeway on
the due dates.
As always, when renting a
movie or game, customers re-
ceive a date when the rentals
must be returned, but with
the new program, the movie
or game can be returned a
day or two late without the
customer being penalized.
"Normally, in the past, they
(movies and games) were due.
by noon, and (customers)
couldn't get in by noon," Ellis
explained. "They would also
mix up (due) days."
Contrary to what the slo-
gan says, there are still late
fees.
As the Blockbuster official
end-of-late-fees flyer states,
"If you still have a movie or
game seven days after the due
date shown on your receipt,
we will convert your rental to
a sale. The movies or game
will be sold to you at the sell-
ing price in effect at the time
of rental, which is either the
retail price, or, when avail-
able, at the previously rented

without dealing with dreaded late fees.


selling price, less the initial
rental fee you paid.
There is a loophole to get
out of the charges if y'ou keep
the rental seven days and
don't want to own it. Take it
back within 30 days and ask
to have the charges to your
credit card removed. There is
a catch, though. You will be
charged a "restocking" fee,
plus "applicable taxes."
This program is beneficial
to customers who plan on
bringing back their rental on
the due date, but can't bring it


in by noon and wait until later.
in the day when they normal-
ly would be charged late fees.
The end-of-late-fees pro-
gram is much like the''"Block-
buster Movie/Game Pass" for
which some members pay a
monthly fee.
The new program would
seem to eliminate the need
for the movie or game pass-
es.
All in all, the free program
sounds better than it is if
you can find a Blockbuster
that participates in it.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING










By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist

Q. I have some pain in my
right ear but I'm scheduled
to fly in two days. It is OK
for me to do so?
A. Any person with ear pain
should NOT fly unless he is
medically cleared to do so by a
physician. Ear pain can be
caused by ear drum immobility
due to an infection and you
could experience horrific pain
when the airplane descends.
There is also a risk of
permanent nerve damage to
your hearing when one flies
with a middle ear disorder.
Those persons with diabetes
should be particularly
concerned with ear pain
because any infection in the ear
can quickly escalate to
dangerous levels. When we
fly, the air pressure outside our
ear drums becomes different
than the air pressure on the,
other side of our ear drums. In
order to correct this we
"equalize" the pressure by
swallowing and allowing air to
enter our middle ear through
our Eustachian tubes. When we
have a head cold, our
Eustachian tubes can become
filled with fluid which will
prevent air from entering the
middle ear. This means our ear
drums cannot equalize and ear
pressure and pain can be the
result. If you are scheduled to
fly soon and have recently
recovered from a head cold or
sinus infection it would be wise
to see the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at 492-
4327 to have your ear drum
mobility evaluated., This
information will help you and
your physician decide how to
best prepare your ears for
flying.

A luxury safari: Facing down lions, martini in hand


.Editor's Note: This is the first in
a two-part series. Part II will appear
on next Friday's Travel page.

BYJANE WOOLDRIDGE
GUEST WRITER

We spot the cheetahs at
day's end, a pair of sisters
young enough to be hunting
together still. Soon enough,
our guide told us, each would
be strong enough to live on
her own.
We're mesmerized, amaz-
ed that we can sit safely in an
open vehicle within a dozen
yards of the swift, fierce cats.
Vehicles, we learn, are not
considered prey as long as
the people don't get out.
The evening grows dark
and chilly; time to head home
to our three-bedroom, 100-
year-old ranch house with
private chef.
"Would anybody like a hot
bath?" asks Tim Carr, guide
and manager of Uplands, the
historic house at Kwandwe
Reserve where we are staying.
When we pull into the
drive 30 minutes later, warm
baths await, frothing with
bubbles.
Morning coffee in the wild,
cocktails in the bush, spring-
bok carpaccio at a candlelit
dinner. Beds topped with
down duvets and romantical-
ly draped with netting. Baths
drawn to order.
And yes, elephants, giraf-
fes, wildebeests, rhinos, lions,
zebras, hippos and birds so
brilliantly hued you reach for
your sunglasses.
A luxury safari is one of
those rare experiences that
may well live up to your imag-
ination though it won't
come cheaply.
Singita Game Reserve in
South Africa, considered by
Conde Nast Traveler and An-
drew Harper's Hideaway Re-
port as the finest in the world,
charges about $960 per per-
son per day, double occupan-
cy., Orient Express charges
$325-$685 per person per day.
double, for its luxury tented
safaris.
We traveled to reserves op-
erated by CCAfrica Con-
servation Corp Africa -
whose luxury lodges and tent
camps in 15 locations across
Africa are run with a careful
eve toward conservation and
cooperation with indigenous
communities. Among them
are the highly acclaimed Lon-
dolozi Game Reserve in South
Africa and the new Lake Man-
yara Tree Lodge in Tanzania.

from camp to camp, ranging
from $370 per person per
night, double, to about $825.
Why the high cost? One
reason is comfort in the wild.
Another: At Africa's private
reserves and luxury camps,
guests are sure to see game.
Here's why: In public parks,
guests may be required to
stick with marked roads, but
in private reserves, guides
usually can move off-road in
specially fitted safari vehicles
to get within photo range of a
particular animal.
Too, reserve owners often
stock the land with a variety
of animals. This may not be as
artificial as it sounds. At
Kwandwe Reserve on South
Africa's Eastern Cape, for
instance, species that once
lived in the area were reintro-
duced after careful study of
how many animals the land's
vegetation could support.
And guides are highly
familiar with the reserve and
may alert one another via
radio to animal sightings.
Still,. game-watching is a
matter of luck.
After all, you are still in the
wild. Animals show up when
and where they want -
which means you need a
nighttime escort from the
lodge to your private cabana,
and you can't be guaranteed
of seeing any particular ani-
mal.
"We could put satellite
tracking chips in every animal
and have a GPS, but that
wouldn't be the experience
you're looking for," said An-
drew Mortimer, Kwandwe's
manager.
We only managed four of
the Big Five buffalo, lion,
elephant, rhino. We never did
spot a leopard the other in
the quintet at the two
camps we visited, and the
hippos proved too far away
for our 300-millimeter zoom
lens.
But we drove within sur-
prisingly close range of a
pride of lions and a shy black
rhino. A pair of wart hogs
showed up one day at lunch
time to trim the gross in front
of Ngala Reserve's main
lodge; a few days before, a
baby elephant had gotten
stuck in one of the reserve's
swimming pools, and. its
mother had worked for 30
minutes to coax it out. Ele-
phants, giraffes, zebras and
countless impalas.
SMost travelers spend three
or four days at a camp, then
fly or drive to-another. We did
the same, stopping first at

Kwandwe, near the Garden
Route, then moving on to
Ngala, near the famous
Kruger National Park
Kwandwe Reserve
In prehistoric times, hunt-
er-gatherers lived here near
Grahamstown, creating cave
paintings that Kwandwe's
guests can visit with a guide.
Local herders eventually do-
mesticated sheep and cattle,
prospering until Europeans
brought smallpox in the 18th
century and an estimated
60,000 died in a single year.
Within the next century, Brit-
ish settlers would move into
the area, bringing conflicts in
which the local Xhosa people
were defeated.
But not forever. The Xhosa
political struggle that began
in 1882 eventually led to the
presidential election of Nel-
son Mandela a Xhosa.
Such history gives a visit to
Kwandwe a cultural dimen-
sion missing at many game
reserves. Until six years ago,
Kwandwe itself was a com-
mercial farm raising ostrich-
es, angora goats, merino
sheep and beef cattle. The
land was purchased by Carl
de Santis, the Delray Beach-
based founder of Rexall Sun-
down, and opened three
years ago as Kwandwe, which
means "place of the great blue
crane" in Xhosa. Some 7,000
animals that once lived in the
region were reintroduced.
The fenced reserve a
Relais & Chateaux hotel is
particularly popular with
families because it lies out-
side the malarial zone. HRH
Prince Andrew of Britain is


also a regular visitor.
Because of its past as a
homestead, Kwandwe offers
more open land than some
other South African reserves,
making it easier for guests to
see game.
Sightings are most likely in
early mornings and late after-
noons, and that's when we
head out on game drives,
spotting great herds of gir-
affes, impalas, hippos, a lone
bull elephant, both black and
white rhino (they look like
giant can openers), kudu
leaping across a hill in the
sweet morning light, a little
malachite kingfisher with his
shiny red beak and blue back.
Our open Rover tiered,
so that those in the back row
can easily see over those in
front is equipped with
blankets and woolly muffs for
warming our hands.
Mornings, we stop for cof-
fee and snacks, served by our
guides from a folding table set
up in the wild. Evenings, it's
cocktails part of the ritual
at all CCAfrica camps.
This is all just a teaser,
though, for sumptuous feasts
that we'll find back at our
lodge.
At Kwandwe, guests stay
and dine in one of three
lodges scattered about the
48,000-acre preserve. The
main lodge, set overlooking
Great Fish River, is decorated
in the rustic but comfortable
style you might see in a
movie: wide verandas set with
welcoming leather chairs, a
great room with vaulted ceil-
ing and stone fireplace, rugs
made from skins of animals
- not hunted, but purchased

The Guardian Children's
Foundation has issued a
request for assistance to help
the hurricane victims and the-
foundation, which is initiat-
ing a fund-raising effort that it
hopes will bring about a flow
of financial help to organiza-
tions such as the Salvation
Army and All Faiths Food
Bank. Both of those organiza-
tions are still on site, assisting
Florida hurricane victims,
beginning with the Charlotte
Harbor area.
Many people are still with-
out help from anywhere,
sometimes even though they
had insurance.
To this end, the foundation
has initiated The Game of the
Greater Sarasota Area, Hurri-
cane Recovery Edition 2004.
The game is similar to Parker
Brothers' famous game of
Monopoly. Instead of street
names, the game will feature
area business names. With
the roll of the dice, one can
purchase a local business. A
Charlotte harbor version is in
the planning stages, with oth-
ers to come.
To become a part of this
special game, buy one of the
squares. Prices range from
$229 for a regular square up to
$499 for a power corner with-
in the center area of the game
board. Buyers ill receive a
complimentary game from
the foundation and may
include discount coupons in
the games that will be sold in
the community.
To learn more about the
advertising opportunities or
about the game itself, call the
Guardian Children's Foun-


dation at (877) 659-9675.

Saturday of each month, with
instruction at 7:30 p.m. and
dancing to a band from 8 to
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 neither part-
ners nor experiencelis neces-
sary. For more information,

THE KEY: Excellent yTW I Good Fyy Fair Tq Poor'





'Racing Stripes' is almost a winner


BY CHRISTY LEMIRE
GUEST WRITER

Dismissing "Racing
Stripes" as a paltry retread of
"Babe" would be mean, and
it's hard to be mean to a
movie that's so well-inten-
tioned.
The similarities are awfully
hard to miss, though as are
the differences.
Whereas the talking little
piggie of "Babe" wanted to be
a sheepherding dog a decade
ago, the talking baby zebra
of "Racing Stripes" wants to
be a racehorse. Actually, he
thinks he is a racehorse, and
is devastated to learn other-
wise when he grows up.
-Like Babe, Stripes the
zebra lives on a farm, where
he arrived after horse trainer
Nolan Walsh found the for-.
mer circus animal aban-
doned on a country road and
brought him home.
And like Babe, Stripes is
surrounded by a menagerie
of computer-enhanced cre-
atures who crack ,wise -
only here. their voices are

A disfigured musical genius, hid-
den away in the Paris Opera House,
terrorizes the opera company for the

Hughes translormed a small lorlune
nlo a massive one Howard Hughes
,DiCaprio) moved to Los Angeles to
become a Hollywood film producer,
where he helped launch the career of
Jean Harlow and other starletS, and
producing such classics as Hell's

Being Julia
Tale of amorous folly and revenge
set in the world of the London stage
in the late 1930's. Reigning diva Julia
Lambert's success and fame grow
suddenly wearisome. She falls head
over heels for a young American,
Tom, and begins a passionate May -
December affair. 1 hr. 44 min.
Burns Court: 12:10, 3, 5:50

A swooning study of "Mack the
Knife" singer Bobby Darin (Spacey)
specifically, and his relationship with
his wife Sandra Dee (Bosworth).

Closer
An intriguing story of passion,
drama, love, and abandonment
involving two couples, which only
gets more complicated when the
man from the first couple gets
acquainted with the woman from the


provided by a much higher-
profile assemblage.of cele-
brity talent, a joke in itself in
Belgian director Frederik Du
Chau's movie.
Whoopi Goldberg pro-
vides the voice of Franny the
goat, who keeps all the other
animals in line. Jeff Fox-
worthy voices Reggie the
rooster. Snoop Dogg growls
lazily a couple of times as a
bloodhound named Light-
ning.
But the best of all is Dustin
Hoffman, who sounds like
he's having a ball goofing
around as a cranky Shetland
pony named Tucker. This is
the first and probably the
last time you will see Hoff-
man and Snoop in thesame
movie together, but based on
the critical praise Hoffman
has received for his wacky
work in "Meet the Fockers,"
anything seems possible.
What "Racing Stripes"
offers in star power, though,
it lacks in heart. "Babe,"
which never hit a false note,
will make even grown-ups
cry every time. This new film,


second coupling. 1 hr. 40 min.

mid-season games, and drew both

Fat Albert
Bill Cosby's popular animated


meanwhile, is strangely dis-
tant, with its superficial plat-
itudes about tolerance and
daring to go after big dreams.
Stripes wants to race, and
the farmer's daughter, Chan-
ning, wants to be a jockey,
but her overly protective fa-
ther won't allow it following
her mother's death in a rid-
ing accident. Together they
sneak their way into the
prestigious Kentucky Open,
where Stripes competes
against the spoiled thorough-
bred Trenton's Pride.
The enthusiastic young
zebra gets help from a filly
named Sandy, a New Jersey
pelican named Goose and a
couple of flies named Buzz
and Scuzz, whose painfully
repetitive routine consists of
singing songs like "U Can't
Touch This," passing gas and
wallowing in piles of poop.
(The proliferation of scato-
logical humor will crack the
kiddies up, but prevent adults
from enjoying the film com-
pletely.)
Pantoliano's shtick also
feels hackneyed, especially


show comes to the big screen. The
movie tells the story of Fat Albeit and
his friends. They're adolescents grow-
ing up in a Philadelphia neighbor-
hood. Together, they enjoy a series of
colorful misadventures. 1 hr. 40 min.

House of Flying Daggers
It is the year 859 AD. China's
Tang Dynasty is in decline. Unrest is
raging throughout the land, and the
corrupt government is locked in battle
with rebel armies. The largest of
these rebel groups is the House of
Flying Daggers. Captain Jin will pre-
tend to be a lone warrior and rescue
the revolutionary Mei from prison,
eating her trust and escorting her to
the House of Flying Daggers. If this is
true love, then why are there plots in
their heads, and secrets in their
hearts? 1 hr. 59 min.

after the animated, mob-
themed "Shark Tale," but he
does offer a great line when
he mistakes the zebra for an
ex-con because of his stripes.
As for the human beings,
they're much better than you
might expect in a feel-good
kids flick. The underappreci-
ated Greenwood, so solid in
movies such as "Thirteen
Days" in which he played
John E Kennedy, brings
warmth and resonance to
the role. He also has a be-
lievable father-daughter dy-
namic .in his scenes with
Panettiere, who has turned
into a strong, beautifulyoung
actress following roles in
"Remember the Titans" and
"Ally McBeal."
But too often David
Schmidt's script forces the
humans in the movie, like
M. Emmet Walsh as a griz-
zled track rat, to utter lines
like, "That zebra really wants
to race I can see it!"
It's ideal for kids, though,
and its heart is in the right
place which almost
makes it a winner.

"It's cool," pronounces son
Hugo, 11. "Better than skiing,"
said Camillia, 12.
At Ngala, guests have a
choice of three experiences: a
romantic camp with six dou-
ble "tents" on platforms posh
enough to earn it a place as
one of the Small Luxury
Hotels of the World, three-
night walking safaris with
more rustic conditions (but
with en-suite flush facilities)
and the main lodge, with 20
air-conditioned chalets in a
grove of mopane trees.
We're at the main lodge, a
bit bigger and not quite as
luxurious as Kwandwe or
Ngala's tented camp (and less
expensive). Still, it's comfort-
able and appealing spa-
cious bathroom with slate
floors, bed prettily draped
with netting at the headboard
- and far beyond what we
ought to expect in the wild.
We don't have the same
menu-to-order as at Uplands,
but the breakfast and lunch
buffets are impressive display
of dishes hot and cold.
Dinner brings a choice of
roasted butternut soup or
springbok carpaccio, filet of
beef with mushroom sauce or
pan-fried Moroccan turkey
breast.
As at Kwandwe, the restau-
rant and guide staffs are so
delightful that by visit's end,
we call them friends. (Un-
fortunately, the hotel manag-
er was slow to attend to prob-
lems in our room.)
Days are organized much
the same as at Kwandwe:
game drives in early morn-
ings and late afternoons in
small groups, stops in the
bush for morning coffee or -
at sundown cocktails; free
time between for naps, swims
or short game walks near the
lodge. Our guide joins us each
evening for dinner so we can
ask questions about our day.
But the land is .different
here denser, hillier,
drought-dry and so is the
experience.
We tour with guide Andrew
Retallac and Fannie Math-
onsi, head tracker who proves
a man of few words but an
amazing ability to spot ani-
mal markings in the dust.
A few miles into the bush,
Mathonsi gives up his small
seat at the front of the Rover
for a cross-country trek in
search of leopard a prac-
tice forbidden in Kruger's
public-access areas.
Not a problem usually,
Retallac told us, though once-
Mathonsi did radio for a
pickup "immediately"; he
was behind a tree, hiding
from a lion.
We drive on to the evening
symphony of grunting ba-
boons in the trees, babets cry-
ing out like an alarm clock
waiting for someone to smack
the snooze button, squeaks

and churls and twitters in a
symphony of bird calls.
A herd of Cape buffalo
graze in the brush, staring at
us with short-sighted eyes.
"The old bulls look at you like
you owe them money, with a
scowl on their face," said
Retallac.
We spot a dazzle of zebras
- the real name for a zebra
herd we're told, like a journey
of giraffes or a parliament of
owls.
Or a pride of lions. By
radio, we learn a pride lies a
few minutes away. We roll
over to investigate, able to sit
only a few yards from a fe-
male and near-grown cubs.
The young have to be protect-
ed; hyenas and nomadic
males will eat the cubs.
That, perhaps, is the lesson
of Africa. Here, the old and
raw ways persist.
In the bush, you may find
comforts, but no few niceties
can veil this essential tenet:
The slow, the weak, the young
and old are vulnerable. The
swift and keen survive.
If they're lucky.
It's growing dark now, and
Mathonsi, our tracker, has yet
to call in. Retallac tries to raise
him on the radio, with no
luck.
While the Rover carries a
rifle, our tracker has only
himself. We get nervous. We
wanted to find a leopard, but
not "that" badly
And then Mathonsi turns
up, hitching a ride on another
group's Rover.
Even here, technology has
its place.

When the once-screened
lanai was incorporated into
the living area and master
suite, the owners of this villa
acquired more living space,
more storage and an expand-
ed view of the Intracoastal
Waterway that is nearly as
good from the inside of the
home as from the backyard
deck area and dock. Since the


expansion, the villa contains
1,358 square feet of living
space.
A covered and paved deck
along the back of the home
expands the entertainment
and living space, as does the
boat dock. Listing agents Jan
and Norman Holloway of
Coldwell Banker estimate
that a 45-foot sailboat could
be accommodated at the
deep water dock. The dock
and home's location is nearly
at the east end of the boat
channel, which opens directly
into the waterway and offers a
spectacular view of Roberts


Bay.
The split-plan villa has two
suites, each with its own bath-
room, one with a tub and one
with an extra large shower
space. Both bathrooms are
tiled, including the floor.
Both bedrooms have large
closets and the master suite
gained an extra wall of storage
when the lanai was converted
to living space, which
expanded both the master
bedroom and living room.
The 8-foot by 15-foot
kitchen is compact but effi-
cient. It includes a small eat-
ing area and ample counter


and storage space. There also
is an en-suite 8-foot by 9-foot
laundry room and a one-car
attached carport.
Newer large tile flooring
has been installed throughout
the villa's bedrooms and living
area. Light in color, it visually
expands the space.
There are storm shutters
and outdoor lighting. The roof
is covered in flat tile and the
exterior walls are stuccoed


ative community with
monthly fees that include
land lease, exterior mainte-
nance, landscaping, cable TV
trash removal and pool ser-
vice.
The villa, at 876 Whitecap
Circle, has been listed for
$585,000, and will be shown
at an open house on Sunday,
Jan. 16, from 1 to 4 p.m.
For an appointment to see
the house at another time,
call the Holloways at (941)


483-6699, 416-1400 or 484-
9715.
TakeVenice Avenue west to
the beach. Turn right onto the
Esplanade and go to the first
stop sign. Turn left onto
Tarpon Center Drive. The
entrance to Whitecap Villas is
on the right, immediately
past the Venice Yacht Club
entrance. Follow Whitecap
Circle to its eastern end. The
listed villa will be just past the
turn.


Landscaping is maintained by the association at Whitecap
Circle.
