Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
D. NAMIKAS


The parties have declined to
disclose the terms of those
settlement discussions. In her
suit Sanders seeks damages
for loss of income, -benefits
and retirement income, along
with prejudgment interest
and attorneys' fees.
Sanders' five-year employ-
ment contract calls for an
annual income of $75,000 the
first year, with annual adjust-
ments thereafter.
Benefits are pegged at a
maximum of 40 percent of
her salary.
SLA attorney Lori Hultman
has declined to comment on
the matter, stating it's not
appropriate to speak to the
press about pending litiga-
tion. Sanders' attorney, Steve
Hutton, was on vacation and
unavailable for comment.
SLA infighting
The suit likely comes as no
surprise to SLA parents after
months of infighting between
Sanders and SLA board and
administrators.
Sanders obtained the char-
ter for SLA from the Sarasota
County School Board and
presided over its opening last
August. But she went on med-
ical leave shortly thereafter,
notifying parents in an Aug.
25 letter.

VA chooses



Sarasota for



newest cemetery

three North County sites came out on top,
6ut of 23 visited in a five-county area. The hitch:
Congress still has to appropriate the money to
buy and, develop the land for the cemetery.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

The newest veterans cem-
gtery will be in Sarasota
County.
Robert Holbrook, director
f, the Office of Construction
Management for the National
Cemetery Administration, an-
aounced Wednesday that the
Veterans Administration had
selected three sites in Sara-
sota County as the agency's
top choices to locate the
nation's newest veterans
cemetery.
The sites all in North
Sarasota County are the
Itawkins Ranch on Clark
Road; and the Myakka Ranch
and the Hi Hat Ranch, both
on Fruitville Road.
Holbrook made the an-
Iouncement locally though
An e-mail to Rich Swier,
chairman of the Southwest
tlorida National Cemetery
Advisory Committee.
"This is'really great," Swier
said. "It means the veterans
cf Sarasota County will have
a national-shrine right in their
back yard. This is really a
great honor and we hope
they'll rally behind it and
keep it moving forward."
: Swier said he had contact-
ed all three property owners
tp tell them the news of their
selection. All three, Swier said,
Were pleased and excited. '
"They all look forward to
moving ahead \with the
t ,


process," he said.
Next steps
Moving ahead means con-
ducting an environmental
assessment during the rest of
the year. If the VA finds no
significant impact, the prop-
erties will then be ranked and
negotiations will begin to
acquire the chosen site.
Swier anticipates negotia-
tions would begin in early
2006, depending upon Con-
gressional funding for the
cemetery.
In an earlier interview,
Holbrook said that Congress
has only appropriated enough
money to fund the project
through the environmental
assessment. Additional ap-
propriations will be required
so the agency can acquire the
site and begin construction.
Holbrook anticipated buri-
als could begin to occur in the
new cemetery by mid-2008,
dependingg upon the timeli-
ness of the necessary Con-
gressional funding.
If Congress did not fund
the project, it could proceed
no -further until the money
was there, Holbrook said.
'Welcome news'
The three sites in Sarasota
County were among a total
of 23 sites visited last sum-
mer and fall by Holbrook in
Charlotte, Sarasota, DeSoto,
Manasota and Highlands
counties.


Five of the potential sites
were in North Sarasota Coun-
ty, along with another site in
North Port, a 1,000-acre site
on the Glawson-Kelce prop-
erty near Toledo Blade Boul-
evard, which was annexed
into the city in 2002.
A 1,100-acre site along,
Beech Road in Charlotte
County, and two sites of 431
acres and 602 acres in De-
Soto County were also in the
running, although the owner
of the Beech Road site with-


drew from consideration last
weekend.
Last year. new legislation
passed by Congress autho-
rized the creation of a new
national veteranss cemetery in
Southwest Florida because of
the glowing number of veter-
ans in the 75-mile service
region. That area not only
includes Charlotte, Sarasota
and DeSoto counties but
Hardee, Manatee, Hillsbo-
rough and Pinellas coundes.
Portions of Polk. Pasco, High-


lands, Glades and Hendry
counties are included as well.
"I'm really thrilled," said
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub, a
member of the cemetery
committee. "These were all
wonderful sites and this is
welcome news for all vet-
erans of Southwest Florida,
but especially for veterans in
Sarasota County."

Opinions shared, choices to be made for public services


:Envision Venice returns Tuesday to select
long-term choices on public services.


INNx l .


BYJJ. ANDREWS
:NEWS EDITOR

More than 80 people
showed up two weeks ago to
share their opinions about city
issues like health care, public
:safety and education.
s This Tuesday the public
must decide which of those
public forum ideas are the
best ones for Venice to go after.
Envision Venice returns
from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at
SGrace United Methodist
:Church, 400 E. Field Ave. This
'forum calls on all city resi-
'dents to show up and identify
priorities they want govern-
ment leaders to pursue.
"In determining the priori-
ties, no new issues will be
added to the list," stated Kathy
Ebaugh, comprehensive plan-
ner. "One may consider this
;like other voting processes.
,The Community Issue Forums
:are the nominating process,
::and the Priorities Forum is the
,election with no write-in
v,yotes allowed."
Envision Venice is part of
,the city's mandatory compre-


hensive plan review to meet
state requirements. This proc-
ess takes two years to com-
plete, and the finished docu-
ment next year will determine
future development and di-
rection of Venice.
The three community
forums on public services
were held Jan. 11-13. Ebaugh
and planning staff have com-
piled all of the community's
ideas from those sessions, and
will ask those who attend
Tuesday to decide which
choices get the highest pri-
ority.
Here are some of the high-
lights to expect Tuesday:

Unlike other area hospitals, we don't cut programs people need simply because they're unprofitable.
Instead, we bring superior, affordable health care to our neighbors and local businesses in meaningful

North Port taking the fifth



... elementary school


Sarasota County School Board will vote at
Tuesday's board meeting on a resolution to buy a
site, on Atwater and Huntsville, for a fifth ele-
mentary school for North Port.


BY ANGELINE TAYLOR
STAFF WRITER


Ground hasn't been bro-
ken for North Port's fourth
elementary school but that
hasn't stopped school officials
from planning for the fifth.
Sarasota County School
Board members will vote on a
resolution to acquire a site for
the fifth school at Tuesday's
school board meeting.
The resolution calls for more
than 100 lots to be included in
the purchase of the land.
"We don't want to get in-
volved with eminent do-
main," said Bob Earley,


schools associate superinten-
dent and chief financial offi-
cer. "It's in our best interest to
have the community know
where it (the site) is."
The site is on Atwater and
Huntsville across the street
from a city park, Earley said.
School officials decided to go
forward with land acquisi-
tions after hiring a consultant
to do a study of the area.
North Port's 12-15 percent
annual growth, Earley said,
requires school official to plan
land buys and construction
schedules ahead of the growth
curve. Construction on the
fourth elementary school isn't


slated to start until 2006.
Construction will begin on
North Port's second middle
school in the fall of 2007. That
project, Earley said, has been
moved up a year to meet the
population boom.
Heron Creek Middle School
opened in fall 2003. The
school now has a population
of 1,728 students.
School officials already
own land for the second mid-
dle and high schools. By the
2011-12 school year, North
Port will need another high
school to alleviate a student
population projected at 3,000
students, Earley said.
In the meantime, the next
projects for school officials will
be two elementary schools in
Sarasota County. One will be
in North Port. The other will
be in Sarasota out Palmer
Boulevard.

Water authority to get more authority?


The need for regional solutions to water prob-
lems could lead to the strengthening of the Peace
River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


It was like watching nego-
tiations between Donald
Trump and Melania Knauss
over a prenuptial agreement,
as members of the Water
Planning Alliance tip-toed
toward a new, expanded role
for the Peace River/Manasota-
Regional Water Supply Au-
thority.
During a meeting Thurs-
day at the Manatee Conven-
tion Center, 11 of the 13 alli-
ance members unanimously
agreed to forward a list of 49
water supply projects to the
authority and area utilities for
review and to begin the mas-
ter planning process. In addi-
tion, the alliance members
also agreed to the creation of


a new technical advisory
committee to provide advice
on water resource manage-
ment.
More important, the alli-
ance also authorized a strate-
gic and tactical planning task
force of county administra-
tors to begin discussions
about the future role of the
authority, the financial as-
pects, and the roles and rela-
tionships between the local
governments and utilities, the
Water Planning Alliance and
the authority.
"Hallelujah," said Char-
lotte County Commissioner
Adam Cummings upon the
conclusion of the vote. "We've
hashed this stuff to death."
Stumble or step
Thursday's vote came after


an hour-long discussion
about the importance of
regionalism in water supply
planning and advice from
Watson Haynes II, the chair-
man of the Southwest Florida
Water Management District
board, commonly known as
Swiftmud.
. A resident of St. Peters-
burg, Haynes witnessed the
water wars of the early 1990s
in the Tampa Bay region.
Telling the 11 officials they
could either be "stumbling
blocks" or "stepping stones,"
Haynes said, "What worked in
Tampa Bay can work here.
This alliance can be a vehicle
to promote a regional debate
to find regional differences.
Put aside your parochial in-
terests and approach this
regionally."
"We're no longer islands
within ourselves," said De-
Soto County Commissioner
Jerry Hill. "We need each
other."


North Port City Commis-
sioner Barbara Gross agreed
with Hill's thought.
"We can't look at what will
be good for just us," she said.
"We need to think about the
citizens of the future."
Stressed
Dave Moore, Swiftmud's
executive director, told the
alliance members that mov-
ing to a more regional ap-
proach in planning for future
water supplies was important
because traditional water
supplies were "stressed." That
led Swiftmud last year to
begin an effort to reduce
pumping from the Floridian
Aquifer from its current 650
millions of gallons of water a
day to 600 mgd.
Despite the cooperative
approach to developing


future water supplies, Venice
Council member Rick Tacy
and EnglewoodWater District
Chair Paul Phillips pointed
out potential problems.
'"As one of the haves, I'm
willing to share," Tacy said,
"but I don't want to pay for
something I don't need."
'As an elected official of the
Englewood Water District, I
have a hard enough time get-
ting people to pay for our own
projects," Phillips said. "If Eng-
lewood dollars go to pay for a
Manatee Countyproject, I'd be
hung from the nearest tree."
Anticipating Thursday's
vote, water authority Execu-
tive Director Pat Lehman said
the authority members will
consider a contract with HDR
Engineering Inc. to begin a
feasibility study of the project
list, which includes with-


drawals from the Upper My-
akka River project at Tatum
Sawgrass in Manatee County.
The list also includes in-
creased withdrawals from the _
Myakkahatchee Creek in ,
North Port, a desalination
plant in Venice, expansion of -
Punta Gorda's water facility
on Shell Creek and an inter-
connection between the
EWD and Sarasota County.
Formed in 2000, the alli-
ance is composed of the four -
counties that make up the
Peace River Manasota Re-
gionalWater SupplyAuthority :
- Sarasota, Charlotte, De- I
Soto and Manatee counties "
- plus the eight municipali-
ties and the Englewood Water I
District. I

BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR'

The latest addition to the
intersection of Auburn Road
and East Venice Avenue may
be a two-story, more than
16,600-square-foot office
building.
One key hitch for Tuscany
Commons is whether the Ven-
ice Planning Commission will
grant a special exception so
three drive-though lanes can
be created for a proposed bank.
The commission meets at
1:30 p.m. Tuesday at city hall.
The meetings are always open
to the public. Commissioners
also plan to consider zoning
map amendments at Bay In-
dies and Country Club Con-
dominiums.
The new development at
Tuscany Commons is at 1790
E. Venice Ave. Gondolier Sun
business columnist Roger
Button reports that Bank of
Venice has chosen this as the
first site during a planned
five-year expansion.
Mike Miller and Waterford
Land Group still must get per-
mission from the city. Drive-
throughs are not permitted
without a special exception in
this area.
According to the applica-
tion, the pair of two-story
office buildings will be con-
nected by the drive-through
and a second-story walkway
across the three lanes.
The entire office building
development would be on
1.17 acres of land, and it is
zoned for this use. Venetian
Gateway District design stan-
dards will be applied
Other items
Also at Tuesday's meeting:
Bay Indies Ron Varner,
general manager of Bay MHC
Indies, is asking that 0.52
acres of property along Hap-
py's Landing, a private road-
way, have its zoning map des-
ignation changed from open
:use to residential multi-fami-
ly. The site is to be used for the
Bay Indies development, but
part of the request promises
the site will not be used for
residential development. The
land has a large metal storage
shed on it now.


County Club Condomin-
iums Renaissance Group
of Venice has asked that 1.13
acres of land at Guild, Fairway
and Golf drives be designated
and rezoned medium density
residential. As of now, it's

change would allow 18 living
units per acre and four-story
buildings, while the current
zoning only allows 14 units
and three stories.

whether she knew it or not,"
Appell said. "It's a very strict
one-strike policy."
Boggess and several other
residents who would not allow
their names to be published
allege that other residents are
known to be dealing drugs out
of their apartments, but Lopez
refuses to evict them.
Lopez, who issued the
eviction notice, was out of
town Friday for a seminar and
could not be reached for
comment.
Appell called those accusa-
tions hearsay, and said evic-
tions cannot be issued based
on rumors. VHA needs police
action and charges for drug-
related activity before evict-
ing a tenant.
"It's a harsh rule, but it's
one strike no exception,"
Appell said.
Operations Manager Deb-
orah Bevan, who signed the
eviction, would not say how
many residents have been
evicted in the past year for sim-
ilar offenses and that all ques-
tions must go through Lopez.
No grievance
Boggess was issued a "cur-
able" eviction notice by VHA
the day before her boyfriend's
arrest because neither he nor
the live-in baby sitter, Jessica
Vooris, had permission to stay
there. She had seven days to
have them either register and
pass background checks or
move out.
Then she and her boy-
friend got into a fight that
night, leading to the violence
and police finding the mari-
juana early Wednesday


"I just wish (VHA)
would give me a sec-
ond chance, that's all.
I'm clean." Maurissa
Boggess, a single moth-
er of two who was just
evicted

morning.
The exact wording of her
eviction is: "Violation of the
'One Strike Policy,' which has
contributed to the domestic
battery and drug-related
activity, and criminal activity
which threatened the health,
safety, and during the Venice
Police Department search of
the unit, Venice Police De-
partment found three mari-
juana plants located in the
unit."
As a public housing tenant,
Boggess does "not have the
right to a grievance hearing
under VHA's administrative
grievance procedure," ac-
cording to the eviction pa-
pers.
Her only option is to fight
the eviction in court, which
she cannot afford on her
cashier wages at Wal-Mart.
Boggess has not been able to
work since being stabbed in
the leg.
She is waiting to hear back
from legal aid, but all Boggess
wants is a second chance.
She's even offered to take
drug tests to prove she is not
smoking marijuana.
Boggess understands peo-
ple might not believe she was
unaware that "a large pot
plant with three small can-


nabis in cultivation," accord-
ing to the police report, was
inside her apartment.
"(But) if I had known, I
would've thrown it in the
dumpster before the (police)
got here. I wouldn't have left it
in here if I knew," Boggess said.
Violence worries
Victims of domestic vio-
lence often do not have the
courage to call police, let
alone follow through with
charges, out of fear of what
might happen, said Diana
Lucker of the Safe Place and
Rape Crisis Center in Venice.
Over and over, she sees
female victims not calling law
enforcement because they
think police will do nothing,
or they fear losing their home.
Consequently, women allow
abusers back in, only to see
the violence escalate.
Lucker was riot familiar
with all the facts in the,
Boggess incident. But after
hearing the words on 'the
eviction notice, Lucker said
that makes it sound as if get-
ting beaten and stabbed was
the victim's fault.
It is never the victim's fault,
Lucker said.
"They're terrified. Their
abusers threaten to kill
them," Lucker said. "Intel-
lectually, it's very simple for a
victim to know what .to do.
Emotionally, they just need
.support.... Everyone-has the
right to not be hurt."
Boggess most likely is eligi-
ble for victim's compensation,
relief because she filed a
police report, Lucker said.
SPARCC can advocate for


Boggess to have her medical
bills reimbursed and obtain
moving expenses.
The key is, she has to call
and ask for help. SPARCC's
hotline is answered 24 hours
a day at 365-1976.
Despite getting evicted,
calling 9-1-1 was the right
decision even though Bog-
gess doesn't know where she
and her 8-month-old and 2-
year-old will be living Feb. 10
when the eviction takes af-
fect, Boggess said.
T'm clean'
Venice police officers went
out of their way to make sure
Boggess and her roommate
were safe and received med-
ical treatment, she said.
Boggess is thankful those offi-
cers made her go to the hos-
pital and take a good look at
those bruises and stab wound
- convincing her charges
had to be filed.
Eviction is a small price to
pay to make sure her boyf-
riend doesn't follow through
on his threat to kill her, her
friend and two small children,
Boggess said. .
"I have a little bit of pity for
(Boylen) because if he had
just listened to 'me, quit
drinking and went to sleep,
none of this would've hap-
pened," Boggess said. "But for
what he did to me, I have no
pity forhim..... And Ijust wish
(VHA) would give me a sec-
ond chance, that's all. I'm
clean."

"Due to health concerns,
my last day on campus will be
Friday, Aug. 27," she wrote. "I
know that with your ongoing
support, the school will con-
tinue to grow and prosper."
Sanders' optimism was
short-lived. Less than a
month later, SLA board trea-
surer Lisa Hawkins noticed
school checks were bouncing.
Sanders had handled all the
bookkeeping.
SLA dean of students Doug
O'Connell, serving as acting
principal, was directed by the
board to tap SLAs state-man-
dated $12,000 credit line to
keep the school solvent.
Sanders heard about the
board's decision and tried to
take her job back prior to her
scheduled January return
date. She said it was a matter
of cash flow, not tight fi-
nances.
"I take responsibility for
not explaining to Doug clear-
ly," Sanders said in Septem-
ber.
' Sanders and SLA officials
met with Mike McHugh,
Sarasota County schools
director of pupil support ser-
vices. McHugh determined
that SLA officials were justi-
fied in using the emergency
credit.
More finger-pointing
Then other issues began to
surface.
Charter schools are pri-
vately operated but are fund-
ed by the same dollars as
public schools. In accordance
with charter school man-
dates, Sanders was supposed
to hire an independent firm


or a certified public accoun-
tant to take charge of the
school's finances. SLA is also
required to furnish the Sara-
sota County School Board
with monthly financial state-
ments.
Those requiremn.'
weren't being met.
"They tried to be penny-
wise and pound foolish,"
McHugh said in September.
"They need to improve their
bookkeeping practices."
Sanders raised some issues
of her own while SLA board
members tried to iron out the
financial issues to access
funds from the school district.
She alleged that SLA offi-
cials violated the Sunshine
Law, which requires govern-
mental business be transact-
ed at open public meetings
after notice. It's unclear
whether such a violation
occurred.
Sanders then went on to
assert in an Oct. 14 letter that
the school had violated safety
standards.
SLA officials refuted
Sanders claims at an October
board meeting,, explaining a
Critical Incident Plan was
completed;
"We should have had' a
plan before students walked
in these doors," said Denise
Tuggle, SLA clinic administra-
tor. "Now you can consider
your children safe."
The school has 20 days to
respond to Sanders' com-
plaint, in which she reserves
the right to add claims against
O'Connell and SLA board
chairman Norman A. Mac-
'Lellan.

Venice wrestlers finish 2nd at Ippolito


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High wrestlers
are used to finishing first in
tournaments this season.
The Indians have already
won at East Lake, Captain
Archer and Flagler.
But in Saturday's case, it
was OK to finish No. 2.
Facing a field of 28 schools
that included the second
best school in the entire
nation host Brandon the
Indians were happy to take
second at the Thny Ippolito
Memorial Tournament.
Venice had two individual
champions Brett Nelson
and Jeremie Cook; two sec-
onds Zach Gaudreau and
*Viktor Vasilevskiy; two thirds
Keith Koziel and Anthony
Saputo; and two fourths -
Matt Rossheim and Randy Re.
Brandon amassed 321
team points. Venice was a
distant second at 212.5. St.
Cloud placed third with 198.5.
Nelson went a perfect 5-0 at
140 pounds. The junior had a
tough final, edging Blooming-
dale's Kyle Paladini 6-4.
Cook was also 5-0. His
189-pound final was against
Brandon's Stephen Caito.
Cook stayed unbeaten on the
season with an 8-3 decision.
He had a tough semifinal

Gaudreau suffered his first
defeat of the season in the

rated wrestler in the country
- Brandon's David Craig.
Craig won 18-3. Gaudreau
pinned in both his semifinal
and quarterfinal.
Vasilevskiy got pinned by
Bayshore's Shane Hamm in


the 215 final. Hamm was the
top seed.

Pirates beat pesky Indians in three OTs


BY JOHN FINERAN
STAFF WRITER

It's going to take more than
shutting down Chris Irvin to
shut down Port Charlotte's
boys basketball team.
.But the Venice Indians al-
most came up with enough
Friday night in Murdock to
pull off the Class 5A-District
11 upset.
In the end, however, 29
personal fouls and 36 turn-
overs doomed the Indians
(10-10, 2-3) as the Pirates pre-
vailed in triple overtime, 66-
61, behind 25 points from
junior Jason Wood.
"Venice did everything it
had to do," Port Charlotte


coach Bill Specht said after the
game, which took more than
two hours to play. "I think they
outhustled us most of the
game. But down the stretch,
our kids played hard."-
Irvin, who was ill earlier in
the week in the victory over
Charlotte, managed just 3
points against the tough Ven-
ice defensive effort. But Wood
stepped forward, scoring 18
points after intermission,
including 10 in the three extra
periods. Max Keleher finished
with 12 points for the Pirates.,
Venice got 14 points each
from George Stritz and Kalen
Lyons.
"I'm very, very proud of
this team," Venice coach Tom


McLaughlin said afterward.
"You have nothing to be
ashamed of when you go to
triple overtime on the other
team's floor. A call, a turnover,
anything could have deter-
mined the outcome. It was
tough having four guys (foul)
out, but the other guys played
hard."
A total of 50 fouls and 63
turnovers were called in the
game that took more than
two hours to play. Venice lost
Ilya Vasilevskiy, Steve Stakso,,
Ariel Bonilla and Dexter Jack-
son to five personal fouls,
while the Pirates, who had 21
fouls, lost none.
The Pirates (16-3, 7-0) led
34-27 after three quarters

Indians give short-handed DeSoto the boot


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Senior striker Paul Siegel
scored twice to lead the
Venice High boys soccer team
to a 6-1 victory over short-
handed DeSoto Friday night
at Powell-Davis Stadium.
Siegel, a captain, upped
his season goal total to a
team-high 15.
He was one of six seniors
honored before the match,
Venice's final home regular
.season affair of the season.


Other seniors honored in-
cluded Erich Hess, Eric Mon-
ville, Scott Dickson, Marc
Laird and Trey Drury.
Dickson scored Venice's
first goal. Then Siegel found
the back of the net for the
first time. Francisco Juani
made it 3-0 and Laird made
it 4-zip. Hess headed home
his own rebound with six
minutes left. Siegel got his
second goal with four min-
utes left.
DeSoto's .goal came off
the foot of Ricardo Gomesz.


Venice only won by a
goal when the two teams
met for the first time, in
mid-November. The Bulldogs
were missing coach Dan
Adorno and eight players for
Friday's rematch.
Venice defeated Palmetto
2-1 on Wednesday. The In-
dians head into the district

But the Indians battled
back to take a 43-38 lead with
1:25 remaining in regulation.
Port Charlotte then used a
7-0 run over the next minute
to take a 45-43 lead before
Lyons calmly sank a pair of
free throws with 12.5 seconds
remaining that would send
the game into overtime.
The Indians' Billy Meh-
serle sent the game into the
second extra session when
he canned a 15-footer from
the corner as time expired to
tie the game at 54-all.
Venice then erased a 3-

But then the Lady Pirates'
laid a goose egg in the third
quarter.
Venice turned the game
into a 62-24 rout. A running
clock was employed the en-
tire fourth quarter.
Venice improved to 18-4
overall and 7-1 in Class 5A
District 11. Port Charlotte fell
to 4-13 and 0-8.
Venice honored its five
seniors before the game -
Lisa Hough, Vickie Mitchell,
Dana Nostin, Jessica En-
anader and Kailey Dett-
mann. All of them started.
Hough finished with a
game-high 13 points. Mitch-
ell had six. Nostin popped
for nine. Enander had a
basket. Dettman finished
with five points.
Port Charlotte only
brought two seniors, with
center Samantha Baltz home
with the flu..
Venice led 21-9 after one
quarter and 36-19 at halftime.

well," Lady Indian coach Joe


point Port Charlotte lead in
the second overtime when
Mehserle hit a running layup
seconds before the buzzer for
a 61-61 deadlock.
But the Indians lost their
fourth player, Jackson, to five
personal fouls early in the
third OT and. Port Charlotte
took advantage. McKens Jac-,
quet hit a pair of free throws
and Wood's steal and score
with 22 seconds left sealed
the outcome.
After eight straight road
games, the Venice returns
home Tuesday for a district
game against Lakewood
Ranch.

DiGiacdmo said. "We were
sluggish. We're gonna have
to play more inspired ball if
we're going anywhere."
Venice outscored Port
Charlotte 18-0 in the third
quarter. Marisa Callaghan's
short jumper at the buzzer
gave Venice a 35-point cush-
ion (54-19), forcing the run-
ning clock.
Callaghan was a spark off
the bench with five points.
Freshman guard Sara
Barton led Port Charlotte
with nine points all in the
first half. She swished two
3-point goals.
The Port Charlotte junior
varsity nearly knocked Ven-
ice from the unbeaten ranks.
Venice prevailed 52-50 to

Last week we talked about
some of the local amateur
stroke play events.
Now we will turn our at-
tention to another type of
tournament, the two-man
format. In a two-man com-
petition, both you and your
partner have a single score
for the day, whether that is
in a scramble, a best ball or
a combination of the two.
There are several good two-
man tournaments through-
out the year and they usually
attract a strong field of locals.
I will begin with the gold
standard for two-man tour-
naments in the area, the
Capri Isles Best Ball tourna-
ment. This is a true best ball
format, meaning that both
you and your partner play
your own ball and record the
best score of the team. This
is much more difficult than
some of the other types of
two-mans for one simple
reason both members of
the team must play well in
order to be competitive. This

Two-Man, which is held over
the weekend of July 15-16. As
with the City Championship,
this is one of the more enjoy-
able events to play in. Very
laid back, this is about play-
ing golf with your pal and is
always a lot of fun. The staff
at Lake V really know how to
run a golf tournament. They,
go the extra mile by provid-
ing food for the players before
the start (on Saturday) and
after play on Sunday. This is
also one of the least expen-
sive two-mans around, us-
ually well under $100 includ-
ing a tee prize. A great deal if
you are new to playing in
these events and want to get
your feet wet.
There are other two-man
tournaments on the sched-
ule, including the City of
Sarasota Two-Ball Cham-
pionship held at Bobby Jones
in late summer, the Calusa
Lakes Two-Man and others,
which we will be talking
about as they draw nearer.
See ya next week.

How safe is your workplace?


A dedicated criminal can breach any company
security system some more easily than others.
However, there are some simple and inexpensive
things an employer can do to cut losses.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


If someone is bent on may-
hem in the workplace, it is
probably going to happen
despite security measures.
However, employers can cut
their loses and liability by tak-
ing minimum security steps,
experts say.
One way to do that is with
employee background
checks, but often that is an
uphill battle.
"We still get employers that
are unwilling or just don't
know or don't want to know,"
said Doris Ferrigno, an owner
of National Research Group,
209 S. Nassau St., Venice.
"They just want to keep hiring
based on their instincts, but
in hindsight will say, 'Yes, we
should have spent the money
for a background check.' "
Ferrigno's company helps
small employers do employ-
ment and tenant background
checks.
In the scheme of things,
the money spent for a back-
ground check on an employ-
ee is a mere pittance, Ferrigno
said.
"If you can afford to hire
someone," Ferrigno said,
"you can afford the cost of
one day's salary, which would
at least give you a criminal
check, or a driving record."
Ferrigno is quick to point
out that people being what


they are, there is always an
element of risk.
"There is no guarantee that
that person won't snap three
months or six months down
the line," Ferrigno said. "But


of future behavior."
Negligence in hiring
The liability issue looms
large for employers who do
not take common-sense
measures like background
checks to protect their, em-
ployees.
Florida law states it clearly
under Chapter 768 Negli-
gence, Section 768.096, Em-
ployer Presumption Against


death of, or injury or damage
to, a third person caused by
the intentional tort of an
employee, such employee's
employer is presumed not to
have been negligent in hiring
such employee if, before hir-
ing the employee, the em-
ployer conducted a back-
ground investigation of the
prospective employee and
the investigation did not re-
veal any information that rea-


COMMON SECURITY PRECAUTIONS
Security experts recommend common-sense precautions to help ensure employee safety. Many do
not cost anything some cost a little others cost a lot:
* Run employee background checks.
* Try to make sure the building has limited access to outsiders. Use door codes, if possible.
* Provide a well-lighted parking area. Install surveillance cameras in parking lots.
* Insist that female employees who work late are accompanied to their car by a coworker or trusted
friend.
Have your keys in your hand so you will not have to fumble.
* Tell employees to check the inside of their cars before getting in. especially at night.
* Tell employees to lock their car doors when parked and when driving to and from work.
* Tell employees ro put purses and wallets in drawers or out of sight.
* Tell employees to report any suspicious people that hang around the building.
* Instruct employees on what to do if an incident occurs. Stress that personal safety comes first.
Remind them about the 9-1-1 emergency number. For instance, if an employee in one corner of the
office or workplace sees an e-calating disturbance in another part of the area. that employee should
immediately call 9-1-1.
* Raised voices in an othepni.se quiet, professional workplace should send up a red flag.
* Require employees to wear identification tags.
* Require visitors to check in with the front lobby receptionist before proceeding any farther.
A sign that reads "Visitors Must Check With Receptionist" will do little to stop someone bent on doing
violence. However, it will remind visitors and guests that your company is security-minded. The deter-
rent value of such a simple sign is invaluable, police said. People with criminal intent might wonder
what other security measures are in place and leave.
* Hold regularly scheduled security workshops with employees. Encourage and value employees'
input. Discuss security issues at staff meetings. Police officials are more than willing to make presenta-
tions and answer questions. They will also do a security evaluation of your building.
- Use common sense. Keep your eyes and ears open. Notice things. If something doesn't look right, it
probably isn't.

can be for everyone."
Hanks and the police de-
partment provided the bright
green T-shirts that say Trail-
blazer on them. Volunteers
also are to wear helmets, take
education classes and pass a
background check.
The group of five is pa-
trolling the path Friday
through Sunday; coverage
will expand once more peo-'
ple sign up. They carry infor-
mation about the bike path, a
first-aid kit and cell phones to
call for help if needed.
"When I ride out there on


Sunday, I stop and ask (walkers)
if they have questions," Trail-
blazers rider Monty Andrews
said. 'And they always do."
Path extension
There's only about a half
mile of path that still needs to
be done on the island side. On
the mainland side, however,
VABI has only poured about a
mile of concrete.
The path will total 10 miles
when complete, 5 miles on
each side of the Intracoastal
Waterway.
One of the major issues is
access near Circus Bridge on


BAD BREATH
The old joke about bad breath being better than no breath at all is
certainly true. For those affected, however, there are times when
they're not too sure about the truth of that statement. Bad breath
dominates any personal relationship and leaves the owner feeling like
a social outcast. It changes the way you act, the way you talk, and
generally the way you conduct yourself.
To get rid of bad breath, you have to eliminate the cause not just
mask it. This may require some help from your dentist or physician. It
usually comes from excessive alcohol, smoking, or food retention
around the teeth. It can also occur from gas producing bacteria from
*" anywhere in the digestive system, a coated tongue, or infections of the
tonsils, sinuses, and lungs. Even indigestion and certainly chronic
1 gum infections can cause bad breath. Diabetes produces an acetone or '
sweet breath, and certain foods such as onions and garlic can be
offensive. Your first step! Identify the cause.

LANDSCAPING & GARDENING
We just had a freeze, so now what do we do afterwards, and what should we
have done before?
What you could have done before is to water everything very thoroughly so that
the ground would have been warmer and the plants would pick up the heat from
the ground. Then covering the plants with a frost blanket would have followed.
This would protect your plants from the cold weather as well as frost. We carry a
frost blanket that is of the highest quality and thick enough to protect your
plants even if it gets down to the high thirties to mid twenties.
What can you do once you have damage done to your tropicals? DO NOT cut
back your plants at this time because if we have more frost or freezes this will
make the plants more vulnerable to the cold. Most of the time the plants will
come back from the cold if you don't "jump the gun" and cut back.
When major damages occur and once you are sure your plants are
dead, you will want to replant the area or redesign you flower garden.
Some times freezes help us to realize what we had planted in certain
areas wasn't the best. Come in to DUKE GARDEN CENTER. We have WINNER
the knowledge to help you out when your plants don't do what you want them to
do. We do LANDSCAPING and redesigning for you that you cannot
do on your own. Fertilize with your Weed 'n Feed from Fertilome to
kill off those unwanted weeds. Come in and look over our nice

path now runs under the
bridge, but then deadends
until a person is on the other
side of Marine Max and sev-
eral other private properties.
VABI is negotiating with
West Coast Inland Navigation
District officials to find out if
it'll let the bike path cross its
land, Andrews said.
"The only thing we're talk-


ing about is going across their
property. ... They have to give
us written permission to
build, and they've done it on
all the other segments so far,"
Andrews said.
On the mainland side, bat-
ties between Sarasota County
and the Florida Department
. of Transportation are slowing
progress, according to VABI.

The perennial



bank examiner



dodge is back


And, here is, the perennial warning
from police: "If it sounds too good to be
true, it probably is."


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Guess what time of year it
is.
/"It's the time of year for
scams," Sarasota County
Sheriff's. Office Sgt. Chuck
Lesaltato said. "They know the
seniors are down here and
that is mostly who they prey
on."
"They" are often referred
to by law enforcement as "The
Travelers" because they, like
the snowbirds, summer up
North and winter in Florida.
They follow the sun, and
the money.
The Travelers have a num-
ber of scams they work. And
while there are other cons,
this one is a perennial fav-
orite. And, sometimes it
actually works.
The so-called bank-exam-
iner scam is as old and as
reliable as the hills.
Designed to separate you
from your bank account, it
begins with a phone call from
someone purporting to be a
bank investigator.
Trust me, I'm your banker
On Jan. 21, an elderly
woman got the call from a
man who said he was a fraud
investigator from the Bank of
America. He said he was do-
ing an inside investigation
and needed her to assist.
' A second man even got on
the line to confirm the first
man's story.
About two hours later, the
woman got a call from a
"Lt. Stone" who told her he
would call back with more
information.
He called back about an
hour later and told her to
withdraw money from her


account in cash and
meet at a grocerystore.
The woman actually met
the man but felt uncomfort-
able, because he could not
produce proper identification.
So, she left with her cash.
Mensa candidate?
On the same day, a confi-
dence man (police cannot be
certain it was the same caller)
worked another would-be
victim pretty much the same
way. He used a more direct
approach.
He called with the investi-
gation story, then came right
to the point and said he
needed her account number.
She looked,on her caller ID
and saw he was calling from
a Mobil station.
She asked him about that.
He was stuck for an answer
and hung up.
"The (first), woman came
close (to, being victimized),"
Lesaltato said, "but they were
both sharp enough not to
give up their money."
Look out!
Lesaltato also had some
advice, especially for the
elderly.
"No bank would ever call
a citizen to help in an investi-
gation," he said. "If it sounds
too good to be true, it proba-
bly is."
Lesaltato also said the con
artists also do driveway and
roof repair scams.
Police said the swindlers'
driveway seal coating wash-
es off with the first rain
and the roofs never get fin-
ished.

STAFF REPORT


Construction will begin
Jan. 31 to build about 3,000
feet of sidewalk along Old
Trail and Forest roads in the
Laurel-Nokomis area.
The project will connect
the neighborhood with Laurel
Road, allowing residents to
safely access Laurel Com-
iinunity Park and making it
$afer and more convenient
for parents to access the
learning Kastle preschool at
101 Laurel Road. The project
'ill'also include minor drain-
Age work and construction of
five off-site parking spaces in
f0oont of the preschool.
/Five-foot-wide sidewalks
Will be laid on the east side of
61d Trail for about 1,600 feet;
9rn the south side of Collins
for about 250 feet; on the east
side of Forest from Collins to
browns Road, for about 700
teet; and on the west side of
forest from Browns Road to
laurel for about 750 feet.
There Will be no road clo-
sures with this project, al-
though workers may need to
temporarily close a small part
6f the roadway to allow for
movement of equipment or
delivery of materials. Signs,
barricades and flaggers will
be present when needed to
assure that traffic moves
smoothly.
McLeod Land Services Inc.
,f Sarasota is constructing the
sidewalks, which should be
substantially complete by the
end of June. Funding for the
$390,000 project will come


from a community develop-
ment block grant.

tion, contact Sarasota County
Public Works at (941) 861-

OUR VIEW



SCOPE examining aging of people, communities


ike it or not, we're all getting older by
L the day.
That includes communities, too.
Sarasota County Openly Plans for Excellence
is looking for citizen input as to what cities
and the county should be years from how.
Twenty years ago, North Port was viewed as
a retirement community, with land often
owned by people living in northern states; peo-
ple who planned to build and perhaps live in
Sarasota County in their retirement years.
That's not necessarily the case anymore as
the average age of the nearly 50-year-old


city's residents has dipped to below 40.
But, there are still people who will be retir-
ing here; they'll just have lived and worked
here first.
Sarasota County is another matter. Of
counties in the United States whose popula-
tion exceeds 250,000, Sarasota has the high-
est number of residents aged 65 and older.
Think about that: There are probably more
people aged 65 and older in Sarasota County
than any other county in the country. That's
according to Jono Miller, who is co-chairing
the county study for SCOPE.


SCOPE is reaching out to citizens, young
and old, with "Aging: The Possibilities," in a
series of community "conversations" as part
of a search for new possibilities throughout
the county.
The main possibility is active living, point
out the study's co-chairs, Isabel Norton, co-
owner of North Family Partnerships, and
Miller, director of the Environmental Studies
Program at New College of Florida.
'"Active living," whether it involves a per-
son or a community, should be the goal for all
of us. SCOPE should be commended for any-


thing it can accomplish along those lines.
Many of the conversations were held in
South County, as well as other locations in
the county, and there will be more opportu-
nities to get involved as the study progresses.
Susan Gregory, associate director of
SCOPE, said, "We are looking at the possibili-
ties, not just discussing problems. ... We are
all still aging. What do we want to be? How do
we want to maximize our potential when we
get older?"
The possibilities seem endless, both for
individuals and communities.


Mostly good vibes


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


We knew making a change
to our publication schedule
would bring a lot of different
reactions. Our customers and
friends didn't let us down.
The spectrum was pretty
broad, from "It's about time"
and "We love it" to "Are you
crazy?" Even though we didn't
change our subscription rate,
a small number of people felt
three papers a week was just
too much to read.
There were a few smart
alecks out there, like the one
who told me reading my col-
umn had ruined his Satur-
days for 15 years, and nowhe
would have nice Saturdays
only .to have his Sundays
ruined. Then there was the
guy who commented his bird
would be happy to get the lin-
ing changed more often in his
cage.
We had a smattering of
people who liked the idea but
thought we missed the right
combination. One person felt
we should have made it
Monday, Wednesday and'
Friday, while another person
suggested Tuesday, Thursday
and Saturday.. A few people
felt they got too much paper
on Sunday, something we did
consider.
One concern we had, and
still have, is the loss of the
Friday night sports by not
having a Saturday paper. As it
turned out,. our first Sunday
had three events, in sports
happening on Saturday: a
wrestling tournament, a bas-
ketball game and the SSFL
Vikings football season open-
er. Wouldn't you know the
football game went into over-
time, causing Sports Editor
Claude Lewis to be later than
we had hoped. Luckily, our
production crew and great
carriers did a nice job of get-
ting you that paper.
When you go through
something this complex there
is an awful lot to look after.
The staff did an incredible job
of getting 24 more pages done
than the week before. The
papers were very newsy;
never did it seem we were just
filling a paper.
Overall the transition has
gone extremely well, with one
major exception: our TV
book.
Boy, did I mess up on this
one. We had worked for six
weeks to ensure that the new
TV book was just right and
there were no major mistakes
in changing it from Saturday
through Friday to Sunday
through Saturday.
We actually printed dum-
my books twice over the last
three weeks to get the kinks
out, of which there was a
boatload. We were so proud of
how well we had .done. We


just forgot to tell our readers
enough times that the TV
book was going to be in
Sunday's paper, not Friday's.
We got buckets of calls on
Friday asking for the TV book.
Staff planned to be in on
Saturday to field calls of peo-
ple who just didn't realize we
didn't publish on Saturday
anymore, but that turned out
to be a sort. of lynching.
People missing a Saturday
paper was not the big prob-
lem, it was the TV book, and
that we had a one-day lapse
in the TV coverage by coming
out on Sunday.
Lots of people were -ex-
tremely nasty. I got called
some not-too-flattering names.
I just messed up and did
not consider the one-day
lapse. We had pages of check-
lists of things to get done, and
had meetings often to take
care of all the problems, but
we all missed that one. My
apologies to all that were
inconvenienced.
There were some features
that we didn't get going like
we thought, and they should
be coming on line in the
weeks ahead. You may have
noticed a whole lot more
columns and material. It is
great getting Fran Valencic a
second day of the week. She is
now doing a Sunday column,
more on the social happen-
ings as opposed to the event
and organization things she
has done so great at over the
years.
Keep us posted on your
observations.

By's Crack: Last week a
friend of mine invited me
to a seven-course meal. It
turned out to be a ham-
burger and a sixpack of
beer.

The Venice-Nokomis Ro-
tary Art Fest was extremely
successful, with 170 artists.
Although the finance firm of
Jack Meyerhoff and Grady
Hough has not got the final
tally, it appears it will be near
a record. That means there
will be a nide amount of help
to lots of youth organizations
in our community, including
the Rotary Futures Program
at the high school the club is
the lead sponsor of. The club
certainly does alot to help our
community. It was smart it
has Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce CEO John Ryan
as its president in order to get
such nice weather.

Florida is one state that
does not allow the use of
photo equipment to identify
and ticket people who run red
lights. It is time we join the
states that do this as a way of
targeting this growing epi-
demic, which causes lots of
injuries and deaths every
year.
Sometimes it takes a major
injury to a high-profile person
or relative of a legislator to
make these things happen.
Lights that help police identi-
fy those people so an onsite
arrest can be made are now in

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Council meeting was in circus tradition


Editor:
Venice has a circus history. Tuesday, the circus came to town
at the Venice City Council meeting.
The main attraction was the high-wire act, of which the
Wallendas would have been proud. Council walked the
tightrope between the people and John Konecnik. .
The crowd watched with awe. We gasped at the skill with
which council maneuvered itself between the highly paid
agents of "Ringmaster John" and the audience. The magic act
of the mayor was voting to turn "water" into "dirt." I tell you, PT.
Barnum would have signed the City Council Act in a drumbeat.
The bottom line was John Konecnik was getting ready to
build his condos. I don't know John, but I do know that his fam-
ily makes a good Southwestern grouper sandwich.
After that, council knows him better, what with his riverboat
history at the Hatchett Creek Bridge, better know as "Ole
Smokey" and "Old Muddy." But, that is a different story, and
since this historywas before my time, I leave it to the circus city
council to evaluate.
As to the future outcome of the "John Konecnik Three-Ring
Circus" at Fisherman's Wharf, one can only guess. But, as
Samuel Adams once said about a man's second marriage, it is
an act of "hope over experience!"

Bush faces challenges
in second term
Editor:
Americans shoved a pie in
the face of terrorists through-
out the world when we
proved our election process is
stronger than ever.
Despite efforts by ruthless
terrorists to thwart our re-
solve with kidnapping, in-
creased bombings and
threats, we stayed the course
and turned out in record
numbers at the polls.
The fact that President
George W. Bush's opponent
received about 47 percent of
the votes is a historic event in
and of itself.
With four years' experi-
ence under his belt, I pray
that Mr. Bush will direct his
talents toward correcting the
problems that concern all
Americans, regardless of po-


litical preference.
He must get tougher,
strengthen our forces in the
Middle East and get the job
done in Iraq with as few loss-
es of our brave sons and
daughters as possible.,
He and his support staff
must make a concerted effort
to regain the respect and sup-
port of our former allies.
Certainly, he has learned by
now that America can't go it
alone.
And, he must win over
Middle East leaders who are
on the fence as to allegiance.
It's been proved that the
"damn the torpedoes, full
speed ahead" concept doesn't
work against an invisible
enemy.
What works is unity, and
outthinking an enemy dec-
ades ahead of us in covert
warfare.


I hope George W Bush has
learned that lesson, and wish
him success with his renewed
challenge.

Backflow backwash
Editor:
,, Why doesn't the city re-
quire backflow valves be put
on the city side of the water
meter, and pay for the instal-
lation, hardware and inspec-
tion itself? It seems self-serv-
ing to interpret the law so as
to force water customers to
. figure out how to pay for a
newly mandated item.
I have never seen or heard
of a problem with backflow
issues here in Venice or else-
where. Has there been a prob-
lem before with this issue?
How about every other
building having a backflow
valve, or every third one? How
about the city paying for the
valve and the water cus-
tomers paying for installa-
tion? Any area of compromise
here?
We are already paying the
largest increase in water rates
we can remember. What's
next? What about the back-
flow valve for the larger build-
ings' fire pipes? Is that one
going to be stuck to the water
customers also? I'm thinking
that the city can get the valves
at a reduced rate and save the
town's residents a chunk of
change.
When will the city decide
to cut off water services for
noncompliance? What is the
current policy? When and
what will make it change that
policy, and to what? Does it
have any plans, or is it "no
comment" at this time, as
your article implied?


So much for a budget, es-
pecially for people.on retire-
ment income. Seems like the
city is blowing people out of
the water with all of this.

It's time to find another
way to fund our schools
Editor:
In view of the positive
news reported in a Gondolier
Sun article dated Jan. 19,1 I am
hopeful the state can provide
adequate school funding with
newfound billions being re-
ported, and the call for an
extension of the four-year
property tax referendum will
not be necessary in 2006.
Of course, the school dis-
trict and elected board mem-
bers must also show how they
have and will continue to be
prudent in spending all the
many millions they receive
from taxpayers.
My new year's wish would
be that all concerned with
helping our students find a
better and more .equitable
way to fund all our state
schools instead of the major
funding coming from local
property owners.
Right now because of the
complicated way funding is
done, we have so-called "rich"
and "not-so-rich" school dis-
tricts with different budgets.
Should we not wonder how
students in those less fortu-
nate areas of the state are
receiving a truly equal educa-
tion? I think we can always
improve education for all and
find a fairer way to tax and
fund our schools if we willing
to try.

It is a sad day for those in
our community who have
known Tom Freeland, the
partner who started and has
run Outback in Venice. Tom
and his team have been huge
community supporters. Tom
is retiring from restaurant
work, which is so time inten-
sive, so he can enjoy his fami-
ly more. We are lucky he plans
on staying in the area.
I Tom's replacement, Mike
Summerall, plans on picking
up where Tom left off and will
continue Outback's tradition
of being a good community
citizen.

Sharky's is having a United
Way Day on Feb. 1. A portion

Thanks to Greg Novack and
Mike Pachota for helping
make this the best United

Once again Venice hits the
spotlight, as we were featured
in an article in Coastal Living

a "Mediterranean Mayberry

It highlighted the 14 miles

Editor:
What is the deal on letting
our hurricane guests stay?
Deal 1 is easy to under-
stand. The city has decided to
allow these folks to stay
awhile longer. The big deal
was supposedly inadequate
fire protection. It has been
solved by putting in a 2,000
gallon temporary water tank,
a relatively simple task that
could have been solved with
phone call, not a story in
newspapers that made Venice
look mean, especially with
the United States rushing a

major part of its navy to areas
hit with a tsunami.
But was Deal 1 really a
scheme to force Deal 2? The
resort owners are giving the
city 4 acres along Laurel Road,
worth perhaps $200,000, or
$2,000 per trailer on their
property. Just what is the
deal? What is Venice trading?
George Hunt, of course,
got givebackss" for the city as
part of the Henry Ranch deal.
It is surprising, however,
that the city is so reluctant to
ask for givebacks or, better, a
cash deal when awarding
exceptions for higher density
or height. I notice the city of
Sarasota now feels that the


deal it was making to devel-
opers allowing higher density
or height in return for funds
for low-cost housing was
woefully one-sided for the de-
veloper. According to an arti-
cle, Sarasota will want 3 per-
cent of the enhanced value of
any new projects.
I notice Venice just granted
another height exception on
Venice Avenue. Question:
What would collecting 5 per-
cent of the value added to the
property through the height
exception be worth to the cit-
izens of Venice?

Two middle-aged brothers admitted to having
stacks of child pornography in their home.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A stash of child pornogra-
phy was found in a Nokomis
home, according to a'Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office report.
Jurgensen brothers Alan J.,
57, and Kenneth L., 64, both
of the 500 blockWanda Place,
Nokomis, were arrested and
charged with three counts
each of possession of pho-
tographs of sexual conduct by
*a child. ,
The Jurgensens are being
held in the North County Jail
on $3,000 bond each.


The police report states the
two men's relatives went to
clean their home while the
brothers were out of town.
One of the relatives no-
ticed a picture
of a family *C

challenge

Isn't life interesting? You
just never know when the edi-
tor of the Venice Gondolier
Sun is going to phone you and
ask you to write a social col-
umn about the fun things
people in Venice do. In addi-
tion to writing on Wednes-
days I'll now also be writing
on Sunday.
Everyone knows how im-
portant it is to take time to
smell the roses. Bonnie and
Bob Anderson, Venice City
Attorney, took time to do just
that and fulfill one of Bonnie's
dreams. The two traveled to
Pasadena, Calif., for the Rose
Bowl Parade. Bonnie said they
spent about two hours in traf-
fic to get to their reserved
seats but it was worth it.
Bonnie and Bob especially
enjoyed spending hours after
the parade seeing the floats
up close. They said the flowers
were spectacular and the var-
ious scents were great.
State Rep. Nancy Detert
divides her time these days
between Tallahassee and Ven-
ice. She is pleased to be back
on the Education Appro-
priations Committee. Nancy
is a former Sarasota County
School Board member. Her
sons Mark, Jamie and Brian
attended Venice High School.
Daughter-in-law Jackie teach-
es second grade at Taylor
Ranch School and her grand-
children attend local schools.
She recently donated left-over
campaign funds to several
schools and gave $1,500 to
Beth Harrison of the Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice to use for three
scholarships for graduating
Venice High School students.
We've all heard the saying,
"Like mother, like daughter."
This certainly applies to Pat
Urich, the recently installed
vice president of communi-
cations for the Healthcare
Volunteers of Venice. Friendly
and outgoing Pat is following
in her daughter's footsteps.
Pat's daughter, Darla Jaye, is
the top-rated talk show host
of channel WVNN in Hunts-
ville, Ala. Both women are
spirited and like to take on a
cause. Pat is passionately
campaigning to have a movie
theater in Venice. She and her
husband hate having to drive
to Sarasota to enjoy their
favorite pastime.
Some of the Venice High
super star athletes are back in
town. All Star volleyball and
basketball star Amy Miller
graduated from St. Andrews
Presbyterian College in Laur-
inburg, N.C. While at college
Amy was bitten by the white-
water rafting bug. This star
athlete is working in town and
saving her money for gear so
she can train to be a white-
water rafting guide.
Another star athlete, Leigh
Holcomb, is back from school
and working at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital. Leigh and
Keith Carter became recently
engaged.
Please be sure to send me
any information you have
about fun things you and your
friends and neighbors do.
Happy Sunday

Surviving Auschwitz and






Buchenwald at 14


STORY BY DON MOORE SENIOR WRITER


P


aul Molnar escaped the Holocaust,
however, 17 of his realitives died while
incarcerated in the death camps.


This is part two of a two-
part series.

Paul Molnar spent only.
one day at Auschwitz, the
infamous Nazi death camp in
Poland during World War II.
The 14-year-old Hungarian
boy, his father, Albin, and his
younger brother, George,
along with his uncle, cousin
and a number of other Jews
from the Budapest suburb
Where they lived were then
taken by cattle car to Buch-
enwald, the German concen-
tration camp in Weimar, Ger-
many.
The 74-year-old Southwest
Florida man doesn't have the
obligatory tattooed prisoner
number on his arm that
everyone else who survived
the death camp has. Because
he was only there for a day
and was sent elsewhere he
didn't receive a tattoo. They
weren't required at Buchen-
wald, he explained.
"Buchenwald wasn't an ex-
termination camp like Ausch-
witz. It was a concentration
camp built in 1937 by the
German government to
house people the Nazis cin-
sidered political dissidents or
unacceptable like commu-
nists, socialists, gays and gyp-
sies," he said.
"When we got to Buchen-
wald we were given numbers.
I was prisoner 66777. Nobody
ever called me by my name. I
was just called Prisoner
66777," Molnar said. "We
were temporarily housed in
tents outside the main camp
that contained about 25,000
prisoners. There were also
sub camps at Buchenwald. All
together the camp held ap-
proximately 90,000 prison-
ers."
Molnar and some 2,500
other Hungarian Jews were
sent to a factory in Magde-
burg, a city of several hundred
thousand people in East Ger-
many that was supposed to


convert brown coal into gaso-
line for military use.
"Our routine was that we
got up at 4 a.m. We fell outside
and were counted to make
sure no one had escaped. If
anybody died during the
night we had to drag the body
out of the. barrack to be
counted.
"Then we ate the same
stuff they fed the prisoners at
Auschwitz. By then we ate it
because if you didn't eat it,
you died.
"At 5 a.m. we marched 4
miles to a factory and worked
until noon. We got off 30 min-
utes for lunch and continued
to work until 6 p.m. We
marched back to the barracks
and arrived about 7 p.m. We
were fed at 8:30 p.m. and then
everybody collapsed on the
floor because we had no beds.
We did this seven days a
week.
"The reality was that all the
time I was there the factory
never produced one ounce of
gasoline. All we did was re-
construction after British
bombers pulverized the plant
on a daily basis."
The work was terribly diff
cult for Molnar and all the
other prisoners. To make
matters worse, by then he
realized what had happened
to his mother, brother and
grandmother after they took
the other path at Auschwitz.
They were sent to the ovens
along with tens of thousands
of others.
"One day in mid-Sep-
tember 1944 we were as-
signed to unload a boxcar of
cement bags. We had to put
the bags on our shoulders,
carry them across the road
and dump them in a ditch. I
dropped a bag of cement and
it broke open," he recalled.
"Two German guards ran over
to me and started screaming,
'You saboteur! You saboteur!' I
knew they were going to beat
me so I dropped to the

ground and covered my head.
"They pulled out their
sdcks and beat me, but after a
while they' stopped. I was alit-
tie dazed, but I knew I had to
get up. If you didn't get up.
they would, shoot you," hel
said. "I stood up thinking I
had survived the worst of it,
but I hadn't. They let a guard
dog loose on me.
"When they called off the
dog he had chewed up my
whole right calf. I was badly
hurt and bleeding profusely. I
was back on the ground and
knew the guards were gonna
shoot me because that's what
they generally did. For some
reason they just walked away.
"I was lucky because my
cousin was nearby. He and
another boy picked me up
and carried me down a little
-ways and put me in a shady


area by a pile of lumber.
"I knew the rule was that if
you could not walk back from
the construction site to the
camp at 6 p.m. you got shot
by the Germans. The only
time I was really terrified was
that afternoon. I knew there
was no way I could walk the 4
miles back to the camp. I felt,
sorry for myself because I was
only 14 andI was about ready
to be killed."
When it was time to return
to camp that evening his
cousin and his buddy got
Molnar up once again. He
was able to hobble along on
one foot with the two of them
holding him up on each side.
The trio concealed them-
selves in the middle of a
group of prisoners and snuck
him back into the camp with-
out incident.


By this time 800 of the
2,500 Jews who had come to
Madgeburg from Buchen-
wald were very sick, or in-
jured or had lost their minds
and couldn't work. They were
placed in a special enclosure
on half rations. They lived in
the open and slept on the
ground. That's where Molnar
ended up.
'After a couple of weeks on
half rations and sleeping in
the open there was an an-
nouncement that this group
was going to be sent back to
Buchenwald. Approximately
815 of us were to be put on
cattle cars once again," he
said. "Because I couldn't walk
very well due to my leg injury
I was at the back of the line.
When we arrived (at the sta-

WORDS WORTH
HEARING










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

Q. My Mother lost
everything in the hurricane
Charley including her
hearing aid. You had an
article about insurance
coverage for hearing aids
recently. What do we do to
see if Mom's hearing aid was
covered by insurance?
A. Many lost or damaged
hearing aids can be replaced at
little or no cost to the user.
Almost all hearing aids come
with an insurance policy
directly from the manufacturer.
These policies are called
LS&D policies and cover the
replacement of any hearing aid
which is Lost, Stolen or
Damaged beyond repair.
However, these policies require
specific forms and filings for a
claim to be made. Contact the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to check on
the status of your LS&D
insurance policy so your Mom
can have her new, replacement
hearing aid as soon as possible.

We can keep seniors involved in social activities by being a friend


'"Abandonment by disasso-
ciation is a cruel price to pay
for growing old and feeble;"
read an article about a new
church in Florida focusing
solely on the elderly.
This started me thinking.
Most faith organizations in
this area have outreaches to
our elderly. Either the leader
or some member visits and
brings sacraments or other
important spiritual gifts. So,
what is the problem? Why
would someone start a min-
istry focused on the very old
and feeble? As a community
are we not meeting the social
needs of these elders? None of


us want to be accused of
abandonment. How do these
elders become disassociated
from the community? Do we
do this with intention? Do we
have the programs and insti-
tutions to address their
needs?
The Friendship At Home
program meets a lot of
seniors that fall into this
group. They would not be
described as the pretty peo-
ple of our community. Often
they have chronic illnesses,
which require them to use
wheelchairs, walkers, carry
oxygen, they may have miss-
ing body parts or tremors.
They often live alone. They
are isolated. They find it diffi-
cult to participate in social
activities because of lack of
transportation and often be-
cause they make others feel
uncomfortable and they feel
out of place.
We vigorously promote the
attendance of these elders to
the Friendship Center. We
know that if we can find them
one friend and get them in-
volved their life will improve.
But because of their isolation


they frequently have forgot-
ten their social skills. They
either find a comer and stay
isolated and lonely or they act
out to get attention. Either
way they are crying out for
friendship for someone
who demonstrates care and
concern.
Ellen is in her mid-90s and
led a very active life. Her fam-
ily has moved away and
working multiple jobs. They
do not have much time to
spend with her and it is a long
drive, which further limits the
attention they can give her.
She no longer drives and the
escalating cost of lot rent has
limited her finances. We
arranged a visit for lunch and
time to stay and enjoy the
band. With the terrible limits
on transportation things be-
came difficult and by the time
Ellen arrived at the center she
was frustrated, tired and hun-
gry. Her initial visit did not go
well. Nothing seemed to go
right until I sat down with her
and gave her individual atten-
tion. I just sat and listened to
her stories about meeting one
of the presidents and other


stories from her long life.
Soon she relaxed and she
enjoyed the remainder of her
visit.
The Senior Friendship Cen-
ter has tremendous social-
ization programs throughout
the county. There is some-
thing in every town, from
cards and puzzles to exercise
classes and dancing. Classes
on computers to Italian and
groups that do shell crafting
and woodcarving. We have an
adult day program that cares
for those who need profes-
sional help and someone to
watch over them. But the
ones in between do not seem
to fit in either group.
Ray was a crotchety old
man in his 80s. He lived on
property outside of town and
loved to fish and hunt. His
dog Red, who has been bitten
by an alligator, was his con-
stant companion. Ray was
lonely, he could tell story after
story about his days in the
service. Theywere stories that
would make you laugh and
could make you stare at him
in wonder of his adventures.
His Davy Crockett style did


not fit in social settings, there-
fore people without knowing
him backed away.
Flo is in her 90s. She has a
chronic illness but is deter-
mined to continue to live her
life. She no longer drives and
finds it hard to spend the long
hours it takes to get from
place to place on the handi-
capped bus. It just wears her
out. She wants to have a visi-
tor but her loneliness has
made her very demanding.
Besides her hearing loss
sometimes creates misunder-
standings with visitors and
they pull back. Flo's strong
will overpowers visitors. She
grabs hard and holds on to
that visitor. She is starving for
friendship. But the visitors
feel smothered.
Others we find in nursing
homes or retirement homes
and assisted living facilities.
Most often they are far away
from family and receive very
few visitors. The days are long
and lonely. We tend to say to
ourselves these elders are
looked after. They are in a safe
place all is well. The prob-
lem is that they have become


isolated from all that is famil-
iar to them. They feel aban-
doned. We disassociate our-
selves from them over time.
We unintentionally ignore
them. They are fed and hous-
ed. They are OK?
Our social programs and
institutions do not meet the
needs of these elders. How do
we reach out to this group of
elders and bring them back
into the fold of community?
The answer is really very sim-
ple. It involves you. We need
you as volunteers to visit
these lonely elders. We need
you to bring these isolated
elders to the center and stay
with them during their visit.
They need a companion. Will
you help us meet this need?
Will you become a friendly
visitor?
Will you give of your time
and talent to these elders so
they will not be aban-
doned?

MILLER from page 58
Dear Medicare,
Try to keep in mind that
the words initial, general
and special are basic
terms that Medicare uses to
identify periods of time for
which you can apply for
Medicare. Also, all of the
Medicare terms that you are
asking about are related to
Medicare Part B enrollment.
So, let's take a look at each of
these individual terms and
what they might mean to
you.
Initial enrollment period
This is your first opportu-
nity to apply for Medicare
Part A and B. If you are not
receiving your Social Security
retirement benefits at age 65
you will need to apply, which
you should do during your
initial enrollment period,
which begins three months
before the month you turn 65
and ends three months after
the end of that month. So, for
example, if you turn 65 in
September, your initial
enrollment period started
June 1, and ends Dec. 31.
Savvy note
You can apply for the
Medicare Part A anytime dur-
ing or after the initial enroll-
ment period. But Medicare
Part B enrollment (if you're
not employed and covered by
your employer's health plan)
must be within the initial
enrollment period or you will
have to wait until the general
enrollment period, which
could cost you an increase on
your monthly premium.
General enrollment period
If you miss applying for
Medicare Part B during your
initial enrollment period,
you'll have to wait until the
next general enrollment peri-
od, which is Jan. 1 through
March 31 of each year. By
doing that, the cost of your
Part B may go up 10 percent.
for each 12-month period
that you could have had Part
B but didn't, and you'll have
to pay this extra amount as
long as you have Part B,
except in special cases, which
we'll cover next.
Special enrollment period
The special enrollment
period is for special circum-
stances. It occurs when you
want to delay applying for
Medicare Part B because you
or your spouse are working
and have group health plan
coverage through your or
your spouse's employer, pro-
viding you work for an
employer with 20 or more
employees.
The special enrollment
period is:
Anytime you are still cov-
ered by the employer or
union group health plan
through your or your spouse's
current or active employ-
ment. During the eight
months following the month
the employer or union group
health plan coverage ends, or
when the employment ends,
(whichever is first).
Avoid the confusion
The best thing you can do
for yourself is to call Social
Security at (800) 772-1213
three months before you turn
65 and enroll in Medicare.
This will ensure that your
coverage begins as soon as
you are eligible, on your 65th
birthday and will help you
avoid the confusing Medicare
terms we just covered.

Dear Savvy Senior,
I am a single woman in rela-
tively good health and I still
work, although I am approach-
ing age 65 and plan on retiring
soon. I mentioned to a friend,
who is already retired, that I
would be relying on Medicare
upon retirement and she
poured out an alphabet soup of
details that frankly over-
whelmed me. Parts A and B, as
well as something I have never
heard of, called Part C. She also


referred to plans A-J. The origi-
nal parts A and B I understand,
but I must confess, the rest of
this stuff gave me a headache.
Anyway, she advised me to look
more deeply into Medicare and
said it would be in my best
interest. What can you tell me?
- Dazed and Confused
Dear Dazed,
I know, it can get a bit
thick, but hey, it's the federal
government that cooked this
up, so what can we expect?
But please don't worry. Take
something for your headache
and get ready to experience
the Medicare alphabet in a
whole new way.
You mentioned Medicare
Parts A and B, which are also
known as the Original
Medicare Plan. It's important
to be clear on these, because
they will affect your choices.
Simply put, Part A is the hos-
pital insurance and Part B -
referred to as medical insur-

ance helps pay for doctor
visits or medical equipment
that may be needed. At age
65 (if eligible), you automati-
cally get Part A when you
sign up for Medicare,
although Part B is optional. If
you sign up for Part B, there
is a monthly premium
($58.70 per month), but if
you don't elect it, you won't
be eligible for any of the
alternatives that your friend
was talking about, which she
referred to as Part C.
Think C, for choice
Part C is simply another
option, more commonly
called Medicare + Choice.
This is offered by private
companies that contract with
the Medicare program to
offer services. It is still part of
Medicare, and depending on
your circumstances and
where you live, it certainly
may be worth a look.


The real advantage of
Medicare + Choice is that it
goes beyond traditional
Medicare coverage. It may
pay for a general annual
physical, for example, or for
prescription drugs, which are
not covered under traditional
Medicare (A and B). And
while there is a monthly pre-
mium, there may be lower
out-of-pocket costs with
such things as deductibles
and co-pays. Medicare +
Choice options are not
offered everywhere, and
while there are some limited
fee-for-service packages
available, most Medicare +
Choice programs are
Managed Care Plans like
HMOs, PPOs, or PSOs, that
means the patient/member
agrees to receive care from
specific doctors, hospitals
and others called a net-
work in exchange for
reduced overall health care


costs. That's the part of the
plan that many people don't
like, especially if it means
they can no longer continue
to see their own doctor or
have to go to a different hos-
pital. However, your doctor
may already participate in a
plan for your area. You'll have
to check.
A through J
Medigap is what your
friend was talking about
when she referred to A-J.
These are simply supple-
mental insurance coverage
plans sold by private compa-
nies that fill in the gap, or
cover those things that do
not fall under the original
Medicare package. These can
help out with deductibles
and co-pays, provide pre-
scription drug coverage, den-
tal coverage and more, but
they can cost several hun-
dred dollars a month (on top

Savvy tip
An often overlooked
advantage of a Medicare +
Choice plan is that you won't
need a Medigap Policy.
Switching
Medicare coverage
If you don't like Medicare
+ Choice, you can always
enroll back in the original
Medicare (Parts A and B)
plan. Keep in mind that if
you return to Medicare after
the first year following your
initial Medicare eligibility,
you may find that not all
Medigap supplemental poli-
cies will accept you. And you
may be able to join another
managed care plan only dur-
ing the open enrollment
period.

apartments, cottages, town-

even single family homes.
Floor plans in a CCRC are
varied from studios and one
bedroom to two and three
bedrooms and larger. They
are in urban, suburban and
rural areas. Communities
also offer many different ser-
vices and programs.
CCRC services
CCRCs provide a wide
array of services tailored to
each resident's needs, abili-
ties and preferences. Typical
services and amenities
include:
Nursing and other health
care services
Meals and special diets
Housekeeping
Scheduled transportation

Moving into a CCRC usu-
ally requires a hefty financial
commitment often requiring
a one-time costly entrance
fee along with monthly pay-
ments thereafter. Fees will
vary greatly from one com-
munity to another, but you
can expect to pay between
$50,000 to $250,000 per per-
son, depending on the type
of housing and services each
offers and the extent to
which long-term care is cov-
ered. Other communities
operate on a rental basis, in
which residents make
monthly payments but do
not pay an entry fee. In still
other communities, residents
own instead of rent their
units in arrangements similar
to condominium or coopera-
tive ownership. Also note
that some CCRCs may pro-


vide entrance fee refunds if
service or residential needs
change.
Be sure to check the policy
at the CCRC in which you are
interested.
CCRC checklist
If you have decided that a
CCRC is the best option for
yourself or a family member,
it's good advice to visit a few
facilities. Here is a checklist
.of things to keep in mind and
questions to ask as you make
your decision:
Find out what kinds of
services the facility offers and
which ones are included at
no extra cost. Sometimes,
extra services are available
for additional fees.
Find out what kinds of
contracts are available to
you.
The CCRC contract is a
legal agreement between you
and the community. This

agreement generally secures
living accommodations and
services, including health
care services, over the long
term. The three most com-
mon types of CCRC agree-
ments are:
Extensive contract: This
offers unlimited long-term
nursing care for little or no
substantial increase in your
usual monthly payments.
Modified contract: This
includes a specified amount
of long-term nursing care
beyond which you are
responsible for payment.
Fee-for-service: You pay
full daily rates for all long-
term nursing care required.
Determine what fee struc-
ture and contract option best
suits your circumstances.
Find out if the CCRC is
subject to licensure, and if so,
ask to see the most recent
inspection reports.
Find out what the pay-
ment schedule is. Also, find
out if the residents own or
rent their living space.
Before signing a contract,
have your attorney review the
contract.

like our English language.
* We have some strange and
fascinating combinations of
letters in our words. Who on
earth thought up gnat, gnaw,
svelte, rhythm or tsunami? It
must have been someone
who wanted to stump those
entering spelling bees.
We have new aides from
other countries. They are
working hard to master our
language, and constantly
humor us in the process. My
favorite is "would you like
some scrambling eggs." I
ordered -scrambling eggs"
because I loved the way one
new aide says it. Even though
their names have letter com-.
binations strange to us, some
of our words are even stranger
to them.
Words can be a challenge,
they can be fascinating and
they can be stimulating men-
tally. We play a word game
each week. How many words
can one make out of the let-
ters in another word using
each letter only once and no
proper names? Would you
believe that two of us have
gotten 650 words out of the
' letters in personality? It is
mental gymnastics at its best,
and sometimes relies on old
words not even in common
use anymore. Valise and
phaeton are two examples.
Give it a try. Some of the
words you come up with may
sound funny to our aides
from the Ukraine, and some
, may even sound funny to you.

Venice couple go on a Yukon quest and




see the 'Toughest Sled Dog Race in the World'


This is part one ofa three-
,part series.

(BY PEGGY ISPHORDING
-GUEST WRITER

We made our list.
: We checked it twice.
You know the list I'm talk-
ing about: The Travel List. The
definitive list that reveals the
spots you and your spouse,
partner or even your brother
would like to see before you
,"close your suitcase one last
Time. Roger, my eternal
spouse and traveling com-
-panion, and I recently com-
pared our respective lists and
were stunned to find that
-while our "must see" destina-
Sitions varied wildly, we shared
!one common, unusual desti-
nation: The Yukon Quest
Sled Dog Race, the "Toughest
Sled Dog Race in the World."
Getting to that race became
our own personal quest.
o Even though friends and
.;our two daughters wondered.
,'what kind of trip this would
|be for two OPALS (older peo-
\ple, active lifestyles), it made
'perfect sense to us. We had
read "Yukon Alone" by John
Balzar and "Honest Dogs" by
Brian Patrick O'Donoghue,
-both written about the 1998
race. The books were so dif-
ferent (one written by a jour-
nalist/author and the other
by .a journalist/musher), it
occurred to us if we really
want to know all about the
race, we had to see it for our-
selves. Choosing to forget that
temperatures can drop to 55
below, blizzards can close
roads, shut down hotels and
wreak havoc with car batter-
ies: None of that mattered as

PHOTO COURTESTY OF ROGER AND PEGGY ISPHORDING
Roger and Peggy Isphording cruised on board the Kapitan Khlebnikov during its Weddell Sea
Adventure; In Search of the Emperor Penguins. From Nov. 20, 2004 until Dec. 17, 2004, they
visited scientific bases, trekked on the ice to observe penguin rookeries and took time to
photograph the magic of Antarctica.


plans fell into place for our
trip.
The first thing I did to pre-
pare for our journeywas to go
on the Yukon Quest Web site,
www.yukonquest.com, which
is filled with good informa-
tion about the Quest, the
mushers and, most impor-
tantly, about the dogs who
Srun the race.
In 2004, the Quest started
in Fairbanks, Alaska, on Feb.
14, and ended in Whitehorse,


Yukon Territory, Canada,
some two weeks later. We
decided to celebrate with the
mushers and their dogs as
they finished the race. I had to
book a combination of flights
on many airlines, including
Delta, Alaska Air and Air
North (the airline of the
Yukon) in order to get to
'VWhitehorse. Just getting there
from Florida was an adven-
ture requiring an overnight
stop, which gave us a chance


to have a fine dinner in
Vancouver and our first expo-
sure to wintry weather.
Hotels in Whitehorse are
excellent, as are the restau-
rants. We chose the friendly
and comfortable Gold Rush-
Best Western Inn. The Yukon
Quest office is within walk-
ing distance, so that was
our first stop. We were anx-
ious to check the status ofthe
race and to meet Stephen
Reynolds, manager of tlhe

Yukon Quest, Canada, who
had been so helpful to us in
figuring out the logistics of
our trip. What an exciting
place to be with reporters,
photographers and families
and friends of the mushers, all
gathered around the race
board. Each person had a
favorite, each was concerned
for "their" musher because
the Quest trail can be haz-
ardous and accidents do hap-
pen. Trail conditions were
"good" and there was only
one bit of bad news; William
Kleedehn who races with an
artificial leg, had broken his
good leg on the second day
out. His courage was evident
as he spoke with reporters at
the beginning of the race,
declaring himself fortunate
since he could only get frost-
bite on five toes. Kleedehn
will be on the trail again for
the 2005 Quest.
Business out of the way, it
was time to enjoy the winter
wonderland that Whitehorse
becomes in February, with
the staging of the Sourdough
Rendezvous. Snow sculpting,
bowling with frozen chickens
(yes, you read that right)
teams of young adults at-
tempting to tow an 18-wheel-
er and a big parade are just a
few of the "people" activities.
Dog competitions are the
highlight of the festival with
weight pulls, short distance
races and a "doggy" costume
parade where the children of
Whitehorse ,take pride in
showing off their Quest
wanna-be's.
Thirty-one mushers com-
peted in the 2004 Quest. We
learned that this race travers-
es some of the most isolated

wilderness areas in the Great
Northwest. Retracing the his-
toric Gold Rush and Mail
Delivery routes, it was first
run in 1984 when teams raced
from Fairbanks to White-
horse, making it the only sled
dog race in the world to
cross an international bound-
ary. If you look at a map of
the Quest trail, you will see
an area of boundless wilder-
ness, which is unforgivingly
cold, dark and lonely. Each
musher begins with a team
of 14 athletes (not dogs, ath-
letes) and runs for two weeks,
covering 1,023 miles on a trail
with elevations that reach
3,800 feet at Solomon's Dome,
the highest point on the trail.
In an average Quest race,
a musher will spend approxi-
mately 200 hours standing on
his sled runners. Under the
best of circumstances, it
would be tiring, but combine
that with the dangers of bliz-
zards, thin ice on rivers, hun-
gry moose and marauding
wolves and the question be-
comes: Why?
Why: because they love it;

Vacation destination: Kennedy Space Center


STAFF REPORT

From the earliest days of
America's storied space pro-
gram, Kennedy Space Center
has been there. Through the
Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and
Space Shuttle programs, the
NASA prep and launch facility
has captured the world's
attention and fed its imagina-
tion for the farthest reaches of
outer space. Nestled on a
placid barrier island on
Florida's "Space Coast" -
Cocoa Beach, Titusville,
Melbourne and Palm Bay -
the endlessly bustling
Kennedy Space Center is the
epicenter of mankind's great-
est adventure. Now, with a
new era of events, attractions
and interactive programs
unfolding year-round,
Kennedy Space Center is a
must-see for every Florida
visitor.


o Located just 45 minutes
1 - from Orlando, at more than
- 140,000 acres more than
200 square miles the mas-
Or o sive Kennedy Space Center is
- an m six times larger than Man-
m hattan. It is a dynamic entity,
.-. with more than 20 NASA
- e launches conducted in the
- past year by NASA and private
P industry. Kennedy Space
- Center's remarkable collec-
emm idon of rockets, launch pads,
e NASA aerospace technology
- components and launch
* viewing opportunities offer
an authenticity and behind-
m w the-scenes access unlike any
S- other Central Florida destina-
w tion.
- 4 0 Home to the legendary
w Launch Control Center,
where NASA engineers have
^ guided launches since the
nocw Apollo program of the early
-p 1960s, Kennedy Space Center
p* also boasts the Vehicle As-
m sembly Building one of the
o a" largest buildings in the world
I -where SaturnV rockets and
* Space Shuttle vehicles have
S ft been assembled piece by
qe -- piece. Stretched north is the
g dW 15,000-foot Shuttle Landing
* 4 Strip, and along the Atlantic
* shore are the massive Shuttle
launch pads, LC-39A and LC-


A Marina Restaurant & TAVERN


39B. A stone's skip across the
Banana River is Cape
Canaveral, site of countless
launches and even more
launch pads, from the his-
toric Mercury Redstone pads
to the still-active LC-40 Titan
IV
Complementing the awe-
inspiring collection of giant
buildings and space equip-
ment, Kennedy Space Center
offers visitors numerous
activities and interactive pro-
grams that will leave them
with a new-found under-
standing of the U.S. space
program, as well as a lasting
impression of the individual
and team accomplishments
that make it all possible. From
technical details and physical
experiments to the delicate
balance between man and
machine, Kennedy Space
Center provides new ways to
explore and appreciate planet
earth as well as its surround-
ing universe:
Live space launches
An on-going schedule of
manned and unmanned
space launches keep eyes
glued to the skies above Ken-
nedy Space Center through-
out the year.
Merritt Island National
Wildlife Refuge
Kennedy Space Center is
an ecological sanctuary en-
compassed by the Merritt
Island National Wildlife Ref-
uge, home to more state and
federally protected wildlife
than any other National. Ref-
uge. Throughout 140,000
acres of estuaries, marshes
and coastal dunes are seven
distinct habitat types and
more than 500 species. Look
for five hiking trails from 1/4
mile to 5 miles long, a 7-mile
driving tour, and countless
photo opportunities.
NASA guided tours
Short of becoming an
astronaut, there's no better
way to get a behind-the-
scenes glimpse of Kennedy
Space Center than on a NASA
Guided Tour. The two-hour


tour is an insightfully narrat-
edjourney through the evolu-
tion of the space program fea-
turing a visit to Cape Ca-
naveral Air Force Station. The
tour includes access to histor-
ical sights seldom open to the
public, and explores the
Space Shuttle program, from
launch prep to life-off,
including up-close views of
launch pads, the Vehicle As-
sembly Building, Operations
and Checkout, and the 6-mil-
lion-pound Crawler-Trans-
porter.
Apollo/Saturn V Center
A fully restored massive
Saturn V moon rocket serves
as the centerpiece of the
Apollo/Saturn V Center. In
addition to viewing all 363
feet of the most powerful
rocket ever built, visitors can
relive the historic launch of
Apollo 8 in the Firing Room
Theatre, and catch the har-
rowing final moments before
man landed on the moon in
the Lunar Theatre. Visitors
can experience the Apol-
lo/Saturn V Center in detail
along with the LC-39 Obser-
vation Gantry on Kennedy
Space Center's NASA Guided
Tour.
Spaceflight simulator
The next best thing to
heading off into the wild blue
yonder is to try your hand on
a spaceflight simulator at
Kennedy Space Center's As-
tronaut Hall of Fame. Inter-
active exhibits and simulators
allow guests to experience for
themselves not just the thrill
but the pull of flight. The G-
force trainer centrifuge takes
guests on a jet fighter training
run, where they can pull up to
"4 Gs" three times the force
of gravity without ever
leaving the ground. Visitors
can also experience the
lighter-than-air ease of walk-
ing on the moon, and even
ride in a rover on the surface
of Mars.
IMAX Theaters
Kennedy Space Center Vis-
itor Complex is home to not


one but two five-and-a-half-
story-tall IMAX screens the
only twin IMAX theaters in
the world. Now playing: the
E-D IMAX blockbuster "Space
Station."
Astronaut Training
Experience ATX
Become an astronaut for a
day through Kennedy Space
Center's unique, new visitor
program, Astronaut Training
Experience ATX. Visitors
ages 14 or older can spend a
full-day participating in an
interactive combination of
hands-on training exercises
and simulated space flight
preparation activities.
Astronaut Hall of Fame
The new Astronaut Hall of
Fame is about the brave men
and women who flew. Ken-
nedy Space Center's newest
addition features the world's
largest collection of astronaut
memorabilia, plus scintillat-
ing displays, exhibits, simula-
tors and tributes to the heroes
of Mercury, Gemini and
Apollo. A historic collection of
spacecrafts includes, the
Mercury Sigma 7 capsule, a
Gemini training Capsule, and
the Apollo 14 command
module.
Rocket Garden
Recently unveiled after its
first "face-left" in 35 years, the
all-new Rocket Garden at
Kennedy Space CenterVisitor
Complex is ready for a ride.
Marvel at eight vintage rock-
ets from the Mercury, Gemini
and Apollo space programs,
each surrounded by expan-
sive walkways and highlight-
ed with easy-to-read signage
and graphic elements.

Kennedy Space Center Vis-
itor Complex ,is open daily
from 9 a.m. to approximately
dusk, except Dec. 25 and cer-
tain launch days. Maximum
Maximum Access Admission
is $33 plus tax for adults and
$23 plus tax for children ages

tion) they took the first 800
prisoners and immediately
put them in .more cate icai's
headed for Auschwitz.
"I found out later that
those 800 prisoners were
gassed at Auschwitz -right
after they arrived. They
couldn't work and so they
were useless to the Germans."
The last 15 prisoners at the
end of the line that included
Molnar were taken back to
the main camp at Buchen-
wald. He was assigned to
Barrack 49, one of the two
barracks at Buchenwald that
contained Jews.
"The camp was being run
by prisoners who took their
orders from German soldiers


outside the camp. The pris-
oners who ran the camp were
very strict but very fair. Theie
were about 20 of us between
the ages of 14 and 16 who
were considered children," he
said. "They decided the 20 of
us would be safer if we re-
mained in the camp and did
odd jobs.
"Tnen something wonder-
ful happened to us. They also
decided that the children in
the camp should go to school.
So three nights a week, from 7
to 9 p.m., teachers came to
our barrack and taught us,"
Molnar said. "It wasn't regular
school with assignments be-
cause we had no books, paper
or pencils.


"What our teachers did
was encourage us. They told
us about ,te ,good things in'
life. Buchenwald, they said,:
this doesn't represent the
whole world. There are beau-
tiful places with blue sky and
green grass.
"These wonderful people
couldn't feed my body, but
they certainly fed my soul.
They gave us hope," he said
with tears in his eyes. 'And I
never even knew their names.
But I knew if they had been
caught teaching us the Ger-
mans would have severely
punished them."
By December 1944 Molnar
was on the move once more.
He and the rest of the teen-


agers were sent to another
slave labor camp at Bergen,
Germany, along the Czech
border. The prisoners at that
camp worked in an under-
ground V-3 rocket factory.
Many froze to death that ter-
ribly cold winter of 1944-45.
He lucked out once again and
wound up as kitchen help
where it was warm.
During the closing weeks
of the war the few prisoners
who were still alive were
taken on a forced march
thought the backwoods of
Germany as the Allied armies
closed in from all directions.
Molnar and a young friend
escaped the march one night
and found sanctuary in a


Czechoslovakian woman's
farmhouse.
"She was very nice to us.
She gave uis food and clean
clothes to wear," he recalled.
"On May 8, 1945, she told us
the Germans had surren-
dered. Two days later Gen.
(George) Patton arrived with
his 3rd Army, but I didn't
know who he was."
Molnar and his pal re-
turned to their homes as
quickly as possible. When he
got back to Bucharest he
found his father, Albin, in the
house his family was forced to
leave two years earlier when
the Germans took over. His

SURVIVING frompagellB


PHOTO COURTESTY OF ROGER AND PEGGY ISPHORDING
The Kapitan Khlebnikov is a working Russian icebreaker and is used for that purpose most of
the year. Built in 1980 by the Wartsila Company of Finland, it is considered to be among the
best and most powerful icebreakers in the world. With a length of 440 feet, the Khlebnikov is
powered with six Wartsila-Sulzer diesel electric engines and three twin DC electric motors.


they love the feeling of not
only competing with other
mushers but triumphing over
the deprivations and isolation
of the trail.
Mushers who qualify to
run the Quest are totally ded-
icated to their teams and dogs
always get first priority ... in
all circumstances. They are
fed first, get more rest and
have regular check-ups by
veterinarians.
Teams generally travel for
two hours, then stop for
snacks consisting of frozen
whitefish or salmon. After
running another two hours,
dogs then rest for four hours.
During this break, while dogs
scrape nests in the snow and
sleep, the musher is very busy.
First, an aluminum cooker,
which is packed away in the


sled basket, must be
unpacked, assembled and
filled with snow, which is
melted and used for cooking
and drinking. While snow is
melting in the cooker, the
musher checks on every dog,
giving each special attention.
Booties are removed and
each foot rubbed with lini-
ment and checked for sore-
ness or swelling. Wrists are
massaged and wrapped in
neoprene to prevent swelling.
Most importantly, each dog
gets a special word of encour-
agement, a scratch on the
head, a belly rub and a
"thank-you." After the TLC,
the musher becomes the
chef, preparing a hot meal for
his team; a mixture of frozen
meat and kibble, which
becomes a "stew" that is


ladled into separate bowls. In
very cold temperatures, a sec-
ond bowl of broth is cooked
up for the dogs because it is
essential that they stay
hydrated. Only after the last
dog is fed and cared for does
the musher relax and prepare
his own meal ... if there is
time. When there is no time
for a hot meal for himself, a
musher relies on high energy
foods like homemade fruit-
cake and chocolate bars that
are carried next to the body to
prevent freezing. In a previ-
ous race, one musher severely
damaged his throat by tossing
a handful of frozen M&M's
into his mouth. Interestingly,
cool boxes. are carried only to
prevent foods from freezing.

The cycling scene: Blame it on Fifi


BY LILI HRABCHAK, ED. D.
GUEST COLUMNIST

How uncanny our life path
is! It leads us in one direction,
lets us settle in, and then like
a prairie dust devil, it tosses
us gustily forth. Most times
we land upright and on a new
path, one still connected to
the other like a bit of spider
web, but distinctly new. For
the umpteenth time it hap-
pened to me, and it is what
brought me to write this col-
umn.
Since returning to Rotonda
West from Toronto, Canada,
in November, I've resumed
cycling with the Coastal
Cruisers Bicycle Club. One of
my passions is racing, so I'm
delighted to be able to cycle
with a group of speedsters
any morning the mood
strikes.
Such a ride occurred on


Jan. 4, when a dozen of us set
out from the Pioneer Trail
Head. As usual for a Tuesday
ride, we made our way across
Gasparilla Road (771)' into
South Gulf Cove.
Cycling fast is done most
efficiently in a pace line. This
is a group of riders, one close-
ly behind the other, who take
turns setting the pace so that
the others can draft on the
rider ahead.
The pace remains high,
and except for the rider at the
front who is working the
hardest or "pulling," the effort
is much easier than in a solo
ride. This is how we were
positioned when we passed a
home construction site on
Acorn Street.
As we whizzed by, an un-
leashed boxer, weighing
about 80 pounds, tore fren-
ziedly off the property. "Fifi"
slammed into the bike in


front of mine, knocking the
rider off course. He ended up
on the ground beneath some
pepperbushes, banged up
and scratched. After instantly
hitting his back wheel, I
crashed to the pavement,
right knee and elbow first.
Although those parts resem-
bled ground round for a few
days, I was grateful that our
injuries weren't worse and
that no one else was hurt.
To put a positive spin on
the incident and luse it as a
teaching tool, I accepted an
invitation to speak about it at
themonthly meeting.
When "other business"
came up on the agenda, and
the members were asked if
anyone would be willing to
write a monthly column on
topics related to cycling, I
raised my hand.
Since I'm a writer and a
cyclist, and since I have the


time, I accepted the chal-
lenge. So, this brief encounter
with "Fifi" is the dervish that
whisked me onto this new
path as writer of The. Cycling
Scene.
Among the themes I'll be
writing about are: fascinating
local cyclists, the joys and
tribulations of the sport, cycle
tours, creating harmony and
understanding between mo-
torists and cyclists and bike
racing at 50 plus. There will be
no techno-babble about
bikes or bike paraphernalia
since I lack sufficient exper-
tise to inform knowledgeably
about that. Don't expect too
much controversy either; I'll
leave that to the cynics.
If I can bring you a smile,
pique your interest in coming
along for a ride with us or give
you a glimpse into the mind
and heart of "the cyclist," we'll
both be richly rewarded.

World War II vintage

aircraft visit Venice


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Venice residents Norm
Dahlstrom and Ray Hoey,
both in their late 80s, are part
of the attraction at the Wings
of Freedom Tour going on
until ;Sunday afternoon at
Venice Municipal Airport,
Triple Diamond Jet Center.
Active pilots, they're regu-
lais at the airport, but on this
occasion they're hanging
around to talk with the public
about their experience in
World War II flying dithe B-24
bomber and the B-17, affec-
iionately called The Fl.ing
Fortress.
More than 12,000 B-17s
were built during\VorldlWar II
to. serve as daylight heavy
strategic bombers. There are
only eight currently flying.
The B-25 was the most pro-
duced medium bomber of'
World War II with just fewer
10,000 built. Only 30 are still,
flying today.
Visitors can ride in a B-17
bomber for $400. or the B-25
for $300-$350. Walking tours
are $7 for adults, $3 for chil-
dren under 12.
Friends for 16 years now,
the two World War II heross
flew bombers over Germany
in 1944 in the 8th Army Air:
Force out of England. Both
flew at 50 feet over the ocean
on D-Day leading the way to
the Normandy Coast. Both
took flak.


Dahistrom, with the 484
Bomber Group, was based
out of Sudberry, England. Part
of a replacement crew, he flew
18 missions over Germany
before being shot down over
Cologne on Oct. 15, 1944, and
taken prisoner of war. Only
two of his nine man crew
returned. Dahlstrom later
took advantage of the GI Bill
and went oin to become an
engineer atj United Aircraft
Corp.
Dahlstrom recently fin-
ished his home-built Piel
Emeraude, a forerunner of
the Cap-10 acrobat plane.
Ray Hoey, with the 446
Bomber Group, flew the B-24,
dubbed the Liberator by the
English. It was an anti-sub
patrol mission. He flew 23
missions over Germany be-
fore being shot down in Liege,
Belgium, already in Allied
hands. Hoey stayed in the Air
Reserve until 1955, complet-
ing a 14-year career in the
:Armn Air Corp.
After the war Hoey became
a saddle maker in New York
supplying saddles for some
famous jockeys.
Today, Hoev flies his own
antique classic, an Ercoup
'46., ,
The Collings Foundation is
. sponsoring the tour to honor
World War 11 veterans in the
state of Florida.

About CCI Homes


Who they are:
Three years ago, Construc-
tion Compliance Incorporat-
ed set out to make a name for
itself to establish an out-
standing track record to be
the best through outstanding
design, attention to detail,
superior construction and
on-time delivery.
Today, CCI Homes Presi-
dent Jesse B. Tabble, III,
believes that goal has been
achieved.


"Whether building a
$750,000 home at the beach,
or a $125,000 home for a
young family, their passion
for building a home never
changes," he said.
The integrity of their com-
pany is only as good as the
strength of their foundation.
Trust, truth, respect and sin-
cerely caring about what they
do, enables them to achieve
their daily goals. They win
confidence by doing whatev-
er it takes to make it happen.
Tabble believes they have
built a solid foundation
through hiring the best team
in the industry. From their
architectural design team to
finding the best subs, they
never settle. They emphasize
relationships with their cus-
tomers. They work closely
with each of their customers
to ensure that they are com-
pletely satisfied with their
new home. The company's
modest size and commit-


ment to keeping their man-
agement team closely
involved with the customer
has enabled them to listen
closely to their customer's
needs, to adapt to market
demands and set new trends
in design.


BIOS:

President Jesse B. Tabble,
III is a licensed general con-
tractor., His experience in
construction began in 1980
when he became a construc-
tion manager, building'multi-
family and single family
homes.
Tabble's experience also
includes an extensive back-
ground in building renova-
tion and restoration. Enthusi-
astic about the building
industry, Tabble started his
own business in 1991, Con-
struction Compliance Inc.
(CCI).
The company has grown
dramatically over the past
two years due to the firm's
attention to detail and on-
time delivery. Tabble's vision
for CCI focuses on the com-
pany's role as "construction
managers." CCI manages all
aspects of the construction
process including, selection,
hiring, scheduling, coordi-
nating, and oversight of all
trade contractors. From con-
ceptual development, to per-
mit, to certificate of occupan-
cy, the average construction
time for a CCI home is only 67
days.
A Florida native, Tabble has
an understanding of all
aspects of building through-
out the state and has devel-


oped relationships with sub-
contractors in every market.
From conception to comple-
tion, projects are treated with
the same professionalism
and exacting specifications.

Vice President John D.
Wylie has been working in
construction since the age of
14, growing up in his family's
construction business in Ver-
mont.
Wylie's early experience
included the construction of
condominiums, roads,
bridges, upscale homes and
commercial buildings.
Wylie moved to Florida in
the early 1990s and contin-
ued his career in the con-
struction industry. Florida
projects have included com-
mercial restaurants, million
dollar beach front homes, as
well as condominium pro-
'jects.
For the past two years,
Wylie has been responsible
for implementing and man-
aging the construction divi-
sion of Construction Compli-
ance Inc. He has developed
and implemented a software
program designed to track
multiple tasks on multiple
projects simultaneously.
Wylie's responsibilities
include budget management,
material procurement, hir-
ing, engineering permitting,
code enforcement, schedul-
ing and ensuring project
integrity. His active leader-
ship and ability to work with a
wide range of architectural
and constructional elements
contribute to his success as a
leader.

DESIGN SCHOOL



Redesign begins with a blank canvas


T w enty-nine years
separate Terence
Conran's iconic
.. guide to decorating,
"The House Book,"
S and his latest
'2 primer, "The Ulti-
mate House Book" (Octopus,
$39.95). In between, a lot has
changed.
Houses have acquired "tro-
phy" kitchen ranges and bath-
rooms have turned into home
spas, part of a trend to remake
everyday dwellings so that
they live like fine hotels.
Living has shifted from self-
contained rooms to flexible
eating, living, sleeping zones
a concept pioneered by
, urban loft dwellers.
And the impact of fashion


on interior design has sped up
so that the return of bell bot-
toms is almost concurrent
with the return of orange
chairs.
In the course of those 29
years, Terence Conran has
changed, too. He's given up
long hair and gained a Sir in
front of his name. But this enii-
nent British designer and
retailer hasn't lost his knack for
dispensing advice.
"When people say, 'My
rooms are tired what should
I do?' I tell them, 'Take every-
thing out of your room,'", says
Conran. "And if you can't move
everything out, put a large tarp
over it."
The next step to take: Assess
your space with a fresh eye.

Analyze where the light falls
and at what time of day. Think
about traffic patterns and how
you live in the room. Pay
attention to eyesores dan-
gling wires and unsightly
pipes, doorways that aren't
symmetrical, trim that doesn't
suit the room.
"Make the shell as good as it
can be," says Conran "Then
start bringing back what you
need. You'll be amazed at how
much goes in the pile for the
garage sale."
He's followed his own advice
and rethought everything in
his house in Kintbury, Eng-
land. "I had to," he explains.
" The boiler blew up, and there
was black soot everywhere."
As for color, his tendency is
to paint everything white until
he's lived in his rooms for a
while. He'll use six or seven
hues ranging from chalky
white to white that has a hint
of liolet.
. "I think of it as priming the
canvas," says Conran. Later
he'll decide that a blue or a
green might look great on the
walls, but white is his holding
color.
Decorating, he explains,
takes time. You have to study
not just your rooms but your-
self, your family and your
lifestyle habits.
SIt's not like buying a party
dress," says Conran. "You can't
do it in a day and a night."
He advises spending time
clipping pictures from maga-
zines and creating a scrapbook
of images that you respond to
because of color, line or mood.
And while you're considering
your style, rethink your light-
ing, which, according to Con-.
ran, "makes or breaks a room."
Put absolutely everything on
a dimmer that can be put on a
dimmer, and then take into


Creative use of space:
A defunct fireplace still is the focal point of the room with television and cushions tucked in.


account these five pointers:
Layer your lighting, says
Conran. "Three or four rela-
tively dim lights can still deliv-
er the same overall level of illu-
mination as one moderately
bright light."
Use uplights, sconces,
angled spotlights to bounce
light off ceilings and walls -
and make your room, any
room, feel bigger.
Steer clear of bare bulbs.
This may sound obvious, but
many fixtures, particularly
those that hang over kitchen
tables, position a bare bulb at
eye level.


* Don't let your shadow
darken a room. If you're chop-
ping vegetables or reading and
your task lighting is behind
you, you'll be casting a shadow
over your own work.
Avoid fixed fixtures unless
a room has a fixed function.
Recessed ceiling lights are
great in bathrooms where traf-
fic paths (sink to tub) are
defined. In multi-use rooms,
keep lighting flexible with a.
variety of light sources that
create overlapping pools of
light.
It's this kind of excellent
advice that has made Conran


one of the most trusted names
in decorating.
His five whole-house
primers are still among the
best around. If you're lucky
enough to have an original
version of his 1974 "House
Book," re-read it. If not, dip
into "The Ultimate House
Book."
In a world of specialization,
a general decorating book lets
you think about your house
soupto nuts. Which is some-
thing Conran recommends
doing roughly every five to
seven years. Unless, of course,
a boiler explosion intervenes.
