VHA moving to Laurel Road?


The $45-million project need's blessing of city
council because it's outside of city limits.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Venice Housing Authority
wants to sell its complex on
North Grove Street and move
out to Interstate 75 and Laurel
Road by the end of 2006.
All the public housing
group needs now is $45 mil-
lion and Venice City Council's
blessing.
It's a long way from where
VI-A was nearly two years ago,
without an executive director
and risking the federal govern-
inent taking over operations.


The 50-unit Grove Terrace
complex is more than 35 years
old and has been riddled with
building code violations and
mismanagement
Venice City Council mem-
ber Rick Tacy, the ex-officio to
\!IA, admits most people will
be surprised at the ambitious
proposal.
"I'm sure everyone will be
(surprised) considering where
we were a year ago compared
to where we are now," Tacy
said. "It makes sense out there,
where there are jobs and will
be grocery stores and trans-


portation. It just makes
sense.
Over the last year, VHA
Executive Director Peter Lo-
pez has resolved building
code violations and now has a
plan to build 200 brand new
townhouses for low-income
families plus rental units for
the elderly and special needs.
Concept plans for reloca-
tion to 59 acres of property on
the northwestern corner of
the 1-75 and Laurel Road in-
tersection were recent sub-
mitted to City Manager Mar-y
Black. This area is outside of
city limits, so council ap-
proval is needed for negotia-

BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Neither Herb Levine or
anyone from the Venice
Neighborhood Coalition have
seen plans four the four-story
building approved for W'Vest
Venice Avenue.
They didn't even attend the
Venice Plarnning Commission
meetings to hear testimony
that approved the special
exception.
Nevertheless, they know
they don't want Mike and
Addy Griffith's new building
based on one aspect -
height. Planning commission
approved an extra 9 feet to the
building allowing it to exceed
the 35-feet maximum.
Levine was even willing to
spend the $300 filing fee to get
the case reheard by council
members.
"Drive 25 minutes north,


and you see all those build-
ings 12 to 20 stories high,"
Levine said. "They didn't
jump to 20 stories) over-
night. They went to four. then
they went to

is just the first
step. This is
not why we

Sue Lang,

mobile home park.
It's been that way for as
long as anyone can re-
member.
About 120 volunteers
within die park will partic-
ipate in this year's effort.
Last year they raised
$16.000 by canvassing
1,300 homes in the park.
This year's goal is $16,500.
The campaign starts on
Feb. 5 and is expected to
finish within two weeks.
"We're asking everyone
to increase their gift by $5
or 10 percent because the
hurricanes busted many
agency budgets," said Bob
Sunuiit, chair of this year's
Bay Indies United Way
campaign.

Volunteers
It all starts with a meet-
ing of the Bay Indies
Mobile Home Park board
of directors, who approves
the campaign and selects a
chairman to organize it.
From there it's like a
well-oiled machine. Key to
their success are guide-
lines provided down the
years by former chairper-
sons.
"It's all grassroots stuff,"
Summit said. "N lore like an


overgrown pair of shoe-
boxes full of literature and
ideas refined over the 30
years of campaigns."
An organizational meet-
ing is called by the board at
the clubhouse, at which
dime volunteers are solicit-
ed.
"We spread out respon-
sibilities so no one gets
overburdened," Summit
said.
The chair is responsible
for the 14 zone leaders,
who oversee block cap-
tains within each zone.
Each block captain helps
organize a team of four or
five volunteers who are re-
sponsible for soliciting
each street.
Weeks before the cam-
paign begins flyers are tied
to each doorknob to let
neighbors know the cam-
paign is forthcoming, who
benefits and when it will
take place.
Another organizational
meeting is held the day
before the campaign's kick
off to make sure all their
ducks are in a row. On Feb.
5 the campaign begins.

Still far away from home


'p,. 4?

Dozens of Southwest Florida families
still living in Venice RV park.


BY APRIL FRAWLEY
STAFF WRITER


Eddeana Barreto leaned
against the doorway of the
travel trailer and turned her
eyes toward the still pond
that dots the middle of the
quiet RV park.
"It's peaceful out here," she
said, tugging at the knit cap
on her head. "Nobody both-
ers anybody. But, this is it,
we're moving out."
Since Hurricane Charley
launched a tree through her
Port Charlotte home, Barreto
and her two sons have lived
in a Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency-issued travel


Lauren Provencal of Deep
Creek stands in the doorway
of her FEMA trailer at the Stay-
N-Play RV resort in Venice.


trailer inside the former Stay-
N-Play RV Park in a quiet part
of Venice east of Interstate 75.
After five months living
miles away from her job, her
children's school and every-
one she knows, Barreto finally
was moving back to Charlotte
County into a mobile home
at the FEMA Park on Airport
Road.
But while two-thirds of the
displaced families who settled
into the tranquil RV park
after Charley have now
moved on some like Bar-
reto have moved into the
Punta Gorda FEMA trailer
park about 112 families
remain in Venice, far from
home and far from regaining
normalcy in their lives.
And with few available
homes in hurricane-battered
areas like Charlotte and De-
Soto counties, some families
could be there for at least two
more months.
Venice officials decided 11
days ago to allow FEMA to
keep its travel trailers in the
park for 60 more days, after
weeks of wrangling and con-
fusion about whether fam-
ilies would have to leave be-
cause of fire safety concerns.
After two months, FEMA
will be allowed to apply for
another temporary permit,
but several families still living
in the park say they hope to
have moved out by then,
either into a place of their
own or into another park
closer to home.
Adam Steidi hasn't been
able to work since he and his
father moved into the Venice
RV park. The North Fort
Myers man's job as an elec-
trician's apprentice in Lee
County is just too far away.
"I haven't been able to
make any money," he said.
"That makes it hard (to find a
new home)."


Steidl said he and his father
have asked FEMA officials if
they could move into its
mobile home park in Punta
Gorda, which would be closer
to his work.
But he said he has yet to
have much luck with the
agency.
"It seems like everybody is
ignoring Lee County," he said.
"I know Charlotte County got
hit really hard, but Lee got hit
too. Our place is wrecked."
The recent uncertainty
about whether he and other
displaced families would have
to move out of the park also
was confusing, Steidl added.
"They never give you a
straight answer," he said. "It's
quite discouraging. I don't
know whether we're going to
be here for a year or a week."
Lauren Provencal has lived
in the Stay-N-Play park since
two weeks after Charley rip-
ped through the apartment
the Charlotte County native
shared with her boyfriend.
*They were among the first
people to move into a travel
trailer there, but the park
quickly filled up with refu-
gees from hurricane-battered
areas of Southwest Florida.
At one time after the storm,
there were 350 families living
there, according to FEMA.
She and her boyfriend
looked for another apartment
for a while after the storm,
but the prices were much too
high so the couple gave up
until things calmed down.
"It gets really hard after
awhile," she said. "You're
kinda stuck. You have to
come back here.. It's hard to
spend time with family, and
you get tired of driving so far.
I can't tell you how many
miles I've put on my car.
'And everybody wants to
overcharge on gas prices.
How much money do you
think people had after the
hurricane?"
An end is in sight for
Provencal though. She and

her boyfriend have been able
to save up their money to
buy a house in Deep Creek.
They can move into it in April.
All she needs now is make
it through two more months
at the park.
. "I can't wait to get back
there," she said. "I hate this. I
keep telling myself, two more
months, two more months."
Barreto has liked living in
Stay-N-Play. For the most
part, the park was a quiet place
for her and her two boys. But
five months of living in a
camper with her children and
two dogs was beginning to
wear on the family, she said.
They were ready to move.
"It's pretty cramped in
there," she said, gesturing to
the inside of the trailer. "We
were bickering all the time."
Not having to drive back
and forth to work and pick up


her children from school in
Port Charlotte will be a big
financial help too, she said.
The extra gas was costing her
about $57 more a week.
But she's still working on
replenishing the money she
had to spend in the weeks af-
ter the storm. She was out of
work for weeks while storm
damage was repaired at Har-
poon Harry's, where she works.
And because her home
was destroyed and one of her
children has asthma, she had
to spend hundreds to move
her family into a hotel after
Charley.
"In a matter of seconds
my whole 'life went down the
drain," she said as tears
slipped down her cheeks. 'It
never hits here.' I'll never
say that again."
She said she'll miss the
tranquility of the quiet RV


park, especially the pond and
trees there. But moving back
to Charlotte County into a
park where several other of
her family members are liv-
ing too is a step closer to nor-
malcy.
"It's been awful for every-
one," she said. "I'm hoping it
gets better."

I *BAD BREATH
The old joke aboul bad breath being better than no breath at all is
certainly true. For those affected, however, there are limes 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
1 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
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.

TO BENEFIT ROTARY FUTURES AND PROJECT GRADUATION


I ;FREE TRIAL OFFER


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Increasing traffic and in-
creasing development all
affect the quality of life in
Sarasota County. Residents.
who want to provide input
into where and how growth
and traffic will continue in the
future can do so during a
series of workshops scheduled
throughout the month of
February.
By law, every seven years,
all county and municipal gov-
ernments are required to
review their comprehensive
plans the document that
dictates the timing and pat-
tern of growth and the impact
growth has on infrastructure
such as libraries, roads, water
and sewer lines and the envi-
ronment.
The review process in-
cludes public input on a vari-
ety of issues, from growth to
water policies and other is-
sues that define the quality of
life.
The idea behind the review
is to respond to changing
trends and conditions in the
community, as well as chang-
ing state and regional growth
management policies. The
process results in amend-
ments that keep the plan
aligned with community val-


nally approved the legislation
in 1975 in part to offset the
burden of social security
taxes and to provide an
incentive to work. When the
EITC exceeds the amount
.of taxes owed, it results in
a tax refund to those who
claim and qualify for the
credit.
To qualify, taxpayers must
meet certain requirements


h,,.


and file a tax return, even if
they did not earn enough
money to be obligated to file
a tax return.
Sarasota County Govern-
ment created an EITC Task
Force to assist people be-
come more aware of this
opportunity and to help
eligible residents in acces-
sing quick filing (e-file)
sites.

One good turn



deserves a lane

Sarasota County plans to deal with traffic
congestion at the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center in South Venice
by adding a turn lane.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Englewood or North Port
residents leaving the Robert
L. Anderson Administration
Center in South Venice know
the difficulty of making the
trip home. With the heavy
traffic on U.S. 41, any drivers
exiting the building and mak-
ing a left turn can hold up
the right-turning drivers for
several minutes.
According to a report sub-
mitted to commissioners last
week, county staff has looked
into the situation "and found
there are several possibili-
ties for improving movement
to and from" the Anderson'
building at 4000 South Tam-
iami Trail, next to the Florida
Highway Patrol Headquarters.
Access to and from the
building and the Florida
Highway Patrol office comes
from a so-called 'Annex Road"
separating the two buildings
and leading back to a rookery
area that attracts bird lovers
nationwide.
The report came after com-
missioner Shannon Staub
made the request in Decem-
ber, after seeing nearly 200 cars
circulating through the park-
ing lot as residents sought to
pay their property taxes while
courts were in session also. '
"There's only one exit from
the facility," Staub said, "and
traffic is getting tied up there."
Access
In the report, Jim Harriott
Jr., the county's general man-
ager of transportation plan-


ning and transit, said the staff
would begin work on design-
ing a right-turn lane from
the facility to accommodate
south-bound traffic on U.S.
41, using existing county
property.
At the same time, staff
will also begin taking action
to close the entrance to the
parking lot and the first medi-
an cut in Annex Road, both
of which are near U.S. 41.
Harriott said the county
would not need any addi-
tional right of way from the
highway patrol, but had ap-
proached the patrol at a staff
level regarding Staub's re-
quest and could report FP
officials "are in favor of any
traffic improvements to this
intersection," Harriott wrote.
A written notice of the
county's intentions to im-
prove the intersection will be
sent to the FHP soon.
One unanswered question
from Staub's request still re-
mains.
* Staub had asked staff to
look into the possibility of
restoring access from the
Anderson Center to State
Road 776 to the west. Before
renovations were made at the
Anderson building two years
ago, traffic could reach the
building from that direction
also.
Harriott's report made no
mention of that request,
which Staub renewed last
week.

Tuscany Commons building approved
/F


Planning commission grants
special exception for a drive-through
so Bank of Venice can expand.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


It took more than an hour
of discussion and the addition
of some bigger trees, but the
latest addition to the inter-
section of Auburn Road and
East Venice Avenue was ap-
proved by Venice Planning
Commission.
Both a special exception for
a drive-through and the site
plan for a 16,600-square-foot
office building were approved.
The bank's drive-through ac-
tually goes through the mid-
dle of the building.


"We intentionally put the
drive-through in-between the
front and back of the buildings
to, essentially, hide it," said
Mike Miller, owner of Water-
ford Land Group, developer
of the project.
The biggest complaint was
not about compliance with
Venetian gateway Dis-trict
design standards. Commis-
sioner Benny Weaver wanted
to know why two rows of
parking are in front of the
building instead of being
hidden in back.
Miller explained that Tus-:
cany Commons had a master


development plan approved
by commissioners more than
two years ago, and the park-
ing and transportation was
set up this way to meet plan-
ning commission's requests.
Miller offered to increase
the amount and thickness of
suffering, which commission-
ers approved.
Other items
Also at Tuesday's meeting:
Bay Indies Commis-
sioners recommended chang-
ing the zoning map designa-
tion for 0.52 acres of property
along Happy's Landing, a pri-
vate roadway, from open use
to residential multi-family.
The site plans to be used for
the Bay Indies development,
but part of tle request promi-
ise'f"te sitevWill no' be used


for residential development.
As of now, the land has a
large metal storage shed on it.
City council now must issue
the final decision.
County Club Condomin-
iums Commissioners rec-
ommended approval of allow-
ing 1.13 acres of island proper-
ty be rezoned from a maxi-
mum of six units per acre to a
maximum of 18 units per acre.
The final decision now rests
with city council. Renaissance
Group of Venice has 1.13
acres of land at Guild, Fairway
and Golf drives and wants
to build a two-story, 16-unit
condominium complex to
replace the eight residential
buildings.

New North Port


elementary


gets nod


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It's official: Land will be
bought for a fifth elementary
school in fast-growing North
Port.
Tuesday's decision by the
Sarasota County School Board
calls for more than 100 lots
to be purchased at Huntsville
and Atwater roads. A new
elementary school is expect-
ed to open by 2009.
Ken Marsh, long-range
planning director for Sarasota
County schools, told board
members Tuesday evening
the purchase would benefit
the district in a number of
ways.
The property borders a
recreational park area across
the street that would provide
additional opportunities for
students, Marsh said.
The land also would pro-
vide three distinct access
routes to and from campus,
minimizing traffic congestion.
And a new school would
relieve increasing crowding in
a high-growth area, notably
Toledo Blade Elementary
School.
Most important, said
Marsh, the purchase can be
done largely without displac-
ing existing homes. There are
only a few homes on the
edge of the property in ques-
tion, he said, and it will cost
the district a lot less to buy
empty lots than to purchase
lots with homes on them.
North Port's nearly 15 per-
cent annual growth requires
school officials to plan land
buys and construction sched-
ules ahead of the growth
curve. Construction on the
fourth elementary school isn't
slated to start until 2006.
A new school typically
costs as much as $17 n0liTon
to build, with a life expect-
ancy of 50 years, according to
school officials.
Construction will begin on
North Port's second middle
school in the fall of 2007.
That project has been moved
up a year to meet the popula-
tion boom.
School officials already
own land for a second mid-
dle and high school. By the
2011-2012 school year, North
Port will need another high
school to alleviate a student
population projected at 3,000
students, said Marsh.
Additional entrance
A second resolution adopt-
ed by the School Board Tues-
day directs the district to
acquire property adjacent to
Glenalleh Elementary.
Traffic congestion at Price
Boulevard and the entrance
of Glenallen Elementary
School in North Port could
be significantly eased by
purchasing three adjacent
lots, Marsh said.
The new land will be used
to build an additional en-
trance at the campus.

These lots also are vacant,
making them less expensive
to acquire, Marsh said. City
of North Port commissioners
also are pleased to see this
latest development, he said.
"The one roadway access
is from Price Boulevard,
which becomes seriously
.congested at the opening and
closing of school, despite the
recent addition of on-site
queuing," Marsh said. "Cars
waiting to pick up students
from school often park right
on the side of Price Boulevard,
creating a dangerous situa-
tion that the North Port City
Commission has been keen to
resolve."
The new entrance is ex-
pected to be complete for the
start of the 2005-2006 school
year.
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris told the board he would
present results of an internal
study on the district's overall
education construction spec-
ifications for the board's re-
view at the next regular meet-
ing. The study is expected to
make recommendations that
would mesh existing school
district specifications with
new class size requirements.

Crime is down in Sarasota County


Calls for service and arrests were
up last year, a result of population growth,
according to Sheriff Bill Balkwill.


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Violent and nonviolent
crime was down in Sarasota
County in 2004.
Except for arson.
"Arson is something that
is sporadic," Sarasota County
Sheriff's Sgt. Chuck Lesaltato
said. "It fluctuates from year
to year, it's just that kind of
crime."
There were 14 arsons ,in
2003, 21 in 2004.
The figures
also showed
an increase
in calls for e'd
service and
arrests.
That s
because of the
population
growth in the
county," Balkwill
Lesaltato said.
Sarasota County Sheriff Bill
Balkwill attributes the dip to
hard working, dedicated em-
ployees and STARTRAC (Sher-
iff's Timely Analysis & Re-
sponse Targeting Resources
Against Crime).
STARTRAC enables auth-
orities to identify problems


and direct the appropriate
resources to resolve them in
a timely manner before they
become major problems.
Lesaltato was asked whe-
ther the thousands of legally
armed private citizens in
Sarasota County have also
been a factor in the reduced
crime rate.
"We don't know if it con-
tributes or not," he said.
According to Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Division
of Licensing, 6,567 citizens in
Sarasota County had con-
cealed weapons permits as of
Dec. 31, 2004.
There are a total of 340,288
permits issued in Florida.
The statistics also show:
Rape was down 11 per-
cent, from 55 in 2003 to 49 in
2004.
Robberywas down 17 per-
cent, from 11 in 2003 to 94 in
2004.
Arson was up 50 percent,
from 14 in 2003 to 21 in 2004.
Total violent crimes were
down 5 percent, from 806 in
2003 to 763 in 2004.

IFJ-R9


MANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS AGREE AND THE
NUMBERS SHOW THERE IS A DIRECT RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN AN ARMED CITIZENRY AND REDUCED CRIME.
Here are some statistics compiled by the National Rifle
Association for Florida and the nation at large.
Since adopting concealed weapons permits in 1987. Florida's
homicide rate has fallen 21 percent while the U.S. rate has risen 12
percent. From Oct. 1, 1987 to Feb. 28, 1994 (more than six years),
Florida issued 204,108 permits; only 17 (0.008 percent) were
revoked because permittees later committed crimes (not necessari-
ly violent) in which guns were present ibut not necessarily used).
In Florida, as in the United States, more than 70 percent of vio-
lent crimes do not involve guns.
Violent crime rates are highest overall in states with laws
severely limiting or prohibiting the carrying of concealed firearms
for self-defense (FBI Uniform Crime Reports).
The total violent crime rate is 26 percent higher in the restric-
tive states (798.3 per 100,000 population) than in the less restric-
tive states (631.6 per 100,000 population).
The homicide rate is 49 percent higher in the restrictive states
(10.1 per 100,000 population) than in the states with less restric-
tive weapons laws 16.8 per 100,000 population).
The robbery rate is 58 percent higher in the restrictive states
1.289.7 per 100,000 population) than in the less restrictive states
(183.1 per 100,000 population .
The aggravated (weapon or injury assault rate is 15 percent
higher in the restrictive states (455.9 per 100,000 population) than
in the less restrictive states 1398.3 per 100,000 population). Using
the most recent FBI data. homicide trends in the 17 states with
less restrictive weapons laws compare favorably against national
trends, and almost all permittees are law-abiding.

Indian hoopsters throw one away at Lakewood Ranch


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


This one was truly a game
that the Venice High boys
varsity basketball team gave
away.
Four turnovers off errant
inbounds passes in the final
seconds spelled doom for the
Indians Tuesday night against
visiting Lakewood Ranch.
The opportunistic Mus-
tangs took advantage of only
one of them but that was
enough to power them to a
52-50 win over the self-de-
structing Indians.
The victory improved
Ranch to 15-6 overall and 6-1
in Class 5A District 11.
Venice fell to 10-11 and 2-5.
The Indians' up-and-down
season seems to be taking a
downward spiral again. Ven-
ice, which had lost seven
straight early in the season
only to win eight of its next
nine, has now dropped three
in a row.
This one hurt, as the In-
dians worked hard and had
the Mustangs on the ropes.
Back-to-back 3-point goals
by guards George Stritz and
Ariel Bonilla gave the Indians
a 50-45 lead with 2:15 left.
Then it all went downhill.
Two free throws by Dustin


Yoder cut it to 50-47, and
following a turnover, Yoder
banged a trey to tie the game.
Ranch came at Venice with
full-court pressure. Three
straight times, the ball went
into the hands of Mustangs.
Ruffin scored a layup off the
first one to give Ranch a
52-50 lead.
Then came another give-
away, but Venice dodged a
bullet when Ruffin missed a
front end of a one-and-one.
The same scenario unfolded
once again.
This gave Venice one last
try to tie or go ahead with 11
seconds left.
Venice got the ball down-
court and called time. With
3.3 seconds left, yet another
inbounds pass went straight
to a Mustang.
Game over.
Venice got several gutsy
performances. Big men Steve
Stasko (11 points) and Dexter
Jackson (9) played hard. Bo-
nilla had 13 points and Stritz
got hot in the fourth quarter,
eight of his 10 points there.
Kalen Lyons and Kyle Ab-
ney didn't really play enough
to have an impact.
Venice will play host to
Charlotte Friday night.
In junior varsity action,
Venice was held scoreless in


the final quarter as Lakewood
Ranch Walked away a 40-34
winner. Venice led 34-33 en-
tering the final session. Ricky
Steranko ledVenice with eight
points.

Old Mission Valley gets new look


STAFF REPORT

Mission Valley Country
Club takes pride in being one
of the oldest golf facilities in
the area.
The course located off
Laurel Road is 36 years young
and counting.
But a planned facelift and
some sprucing up will make
Mission Valley look even
younger.
Not only will the course
be refreshed with the re-
placing and reshaping of 30
greenside bunkers, but reno-
vation of the clubhouse will
give Mission Valley a more
homey touch.
Work on the $1.7 million
project will begin sometime
this summer and is sched-
uled to be completed by No-
vember.
The course will stay open
for play while work is being
done.
"Golf courses are always
in change," said general
manager Brian Matt. "You're
always looking to improve a
golf course."
Christine Bolton, director


of marketing, said the board
began researching the 'im-
provements and renovation
last summer.
Members approved the
proposals after getting the
Xs and Os at town-hall style
meetings in December and
January.
Mission Valley has close to
400 members.
Members had their equity
increased by $1,000 to help
fund the project. Mission
Valley is also looking for
financing and loans.
Head pro Jim Duval be-
lieves Mission Valley will be
a better place because of the
decision to move forward.
"Putting this plan is place
will keep our golf course at
the forefront of all the courses
in Sarasota County." he said.
"We will retain the playabil-
ity our members enjoy while
making it more attractive
and challenging for every-
one."
"There will be improved
risk'and reward," Matt said.
The long-term plan is to
expand the water features,
native areas and tees.


The clubhouse renovation
calls for a new front entry,
expanded seating, a patio
with an outdoor fire pit and
a new bar.
"The bar will be closer to
the course and those sitting
and engaging in conversation
will be able to look out over
the course," Matt said.
Down the road, Matt said
that the board will consider
further improvements such
as locker room renovation,
pro shop expansion and a
fitness center.
"That would be stage
two," Matt said.
Mission Valley president
David Collins is excited as a
child about the project.
"Thank you for the over-
whelming support you gave
to the proposals to update
the golf course and club-
house," he said to members.
"The vote was more than
2 to 1 in favor of going
ahead. We strongly believe
you have given the club the
ability to start on the pro-
gram that will be Mission
Valley's foundation for the
future."


Even when she was a little
girl, Natalie Gaudreau was
tenacious in whatever sport
she tackled.
She first remembers play-
ing basketball with her
father when she was 5 years
old. Older brother Zach was
better. That was a driving
force.
"I wanted to be better
than him," Natalie recalled.
"I wanted to show him up."
When Zach gave up
hoops and switched to
wrestling, little sister was
right behind.
"I wrestled when I was in
third grade," she said. "I was
third in the state in a freestyle
tournament."
Natalie also dabbled in
softball. Then later volleyball.
She excelled in every sport
she played.
But her favorite always was
basketball.
"I played every day after
school," Gaudreau said. '"Alot
of it came naturally, but I
think the reason I got so
good so fast at basketball
was playing with the guys all
the time."
Playing against her friend,
Jeff Payne, also helped take
her game to a higher level.
"He is so much quicker
than I am," said Natalie of
the former VHS boys player.
"He's helped me."
Gaudreau was a standout
for her junior high basketball
team at Laurel.
"We were undefeated both
years," she boasted.
Gaudreau was more ad-
vanced than the other girls
her age at handling and
passing the basketball. She


was shaping up as a hoop
prospect for Venice High
coach Joe DiGiacomo.
As a freshman, Gaudreau's
dream was to make the Lady
Indians varsity squad.
She got a big shock when
DiGiacomo
told her that
she would be
the starting -
point guard. ,
"I worked
hard just to
show every-
one I was
good enough
to make var- Gaudreau
sity," she
said. "Right before our first
game he told me I was start-
ing. I was surprised."
Gaudreau had a few grow-
4ing pains as a freshman last
year, but the good easily
outweighed the bad. She
showed talent, poise and
confidence running the of-


fense.
Venice went on to enjoy a
very successful 23-5 season.
Gaudreau averaged 9.2 points
per game.
"The most important stat
is assists," she said. "I don't
think they keep track of
those, but to me they're
important."
Gaudreau was also very
effective dribble-driving to
the hole.
But offense isn't even half
the game.
"Defense is the strongest
part of my game," she said.
"Defense sets the tone."
Especially when you play
a pressing, up-tempo style
like Venice.
Now a 15-year-old sopho-
more, Gaudreau has im-
proved on her game all-
around. Standing 5-feet, 9-
inches, she is taller than most
other point guards. Her most
notable upgrade on offense
is her desire to take and hit
the 3-point shot.

Stepping up to



the plate for charity


The third annual DQ Grill
& Chill Home Run Derby was
held Saturday at Ed Smith
Stadium in Sarasota.
The celebrity portion of
the event acted as a fund-
raiser for Big Brothers/Big
Sisters as well as local high
school programs. ,
The format had celebrities
each take a turn to see who
could hit the most balls out of
the park. Each pitched ball


was marked and sold as part
of the fund-raiser. Balls hit
over the fence went into a pool
for the grand prize of $1,000.
Other prizes were award-
ed according to where balls
were hit.
This year's winner was for-
mer Venice High and Uni-
versity of Alabama standout
Adam Pavkovich. He is now
playing professional ball in
the Anaheim Angels organi-


zation.
Two-time defending
champ Jose Velez, the popular
hitting coach at VHS, saw his
efforts curtailed by a strong
south breeze.
Other sluggers participat-
ing included George Foster,
Jon Knott, Rich Carroll and
Jack Voigt, to name a few.
The Home Run Derby was
previously held at the Venice
High baseball field.

SGOODS from page 8A
"Natalie's a complete play-
er," DiGiacomo said. "She
can shoot, pass and handle
the ball. She has good size
and she's stronger this year."
"I need to work on my
! ball-handling, shooting and
quickness," said Gaudreau,
a strong-willed, determined
player who is sometimes her
own worst critic.
Gaudreau also stepped up
to be a standout in volleyball
for the VHS varsity this fall
when outside hitter Diondra
Real went down with a sea-
son-ending injury.
But her true love is bas-
ketball.
"My dream is to play bas-
ketball for a college," she said.
"It doesn't matter where. I
'want to go out of state. I
* would love to play for the
University of Maryland."

IBlues Pig trades in badges or microphones



Blues Pig trades in badges for microphones


Crime stoppers turned show stoppers, Blues Pig
will strut its stuff before Lil' Ed and The Blues
Imperials. at Skipper's on Feb. 4 in Tampa.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

They didn't start out to
make an all-cop blues band.
They just found they had the
same interests a passion
for the blues.
Now, they're carrying the
native blues torch in the area
and loving every minute of it.
Formed in 1997, Blues Pig
is no stranger to the Sarasota
County blues scene.
The band name, distinc-
tive logo (a pig in top hat play-
ing the guitar, created by the
harp player's brother), and
nicknames show these cops
have a healthy sense of hu-
mor.
Blues Pig band members
include co-founder "Danger-
ous" Mark DeFraties on har-
monica (Bradenton), "Iron"
Mike Kahl on bass (Sarasota),
Dave Tuggle on guitar (Os-
prey), co-founder "Sizzlin"
Steve Mislyan on guitar and
vocals (Sarasota), and "Spec-
ial" Ed Jackson on drums
(Venice) all officers of the
law.
"I started calling Mark a
blues pig," Mislyan said. "He'd
say, 'No, I'm not. You're the
blues pig.' We would argue for


hours over who was the real
pig. It was more like, who
could pig out more on the
blues."
The name stuck.
They play down their law
enforcement status. But it's
one of the safest concerts you
will ever attend with all their
fellow officers and friends in
the audience.
Under the influence
Blues Pig has a vintage
sound out of Chicago or New
Orleans in the early 1960s.
Their starts and stops are
crisp. Muddy Waters, Magic
Sam (John Belushi's favorite
blues man), Bo Diddley and
Magic Dick (harmonica play-
er for the JGiles Band) are just
some of the famous artists
they attempt to emulate.
"We have a couple of origi-
nals, but we mostly do our
own versions of covers," Mis-
lyan said.
Rock Bottom was another
major influence. From the
Sarasota/Bradenton area,
Rock was a true blues man
who toured Europe and New
Orleans and recorded albums
with the likes of Diamond
Tooth Mary. Rock Bottom
started out playing pig roasts


Blues Pig members "Dangerous" Mark DeFraties on harmonica
(Bradenton) and "Sizzlin" Steve Mislyan (Sarasota) enjoy great
acoustics in the freight room at the Venice Train Depot.


in Palmetto back in the 1970s,
Mislyan said.
A master messenger of the
blues if ever there was one,
Rock Bottom was blowin'
harp for new and old blues
fans alike for nearly 30 years,
say fans.
Rock Bottom
"It's all about tone," Mis-
lyan said. "I saw Stevie Ray
Vaughn in 1985. Didn't know
who he was. He had a '59 strat
through a hot roded '63


vibroberb amp. From the first
note you knew you were in
the presence of greatness."
Mislyan said Rock Bottom
had the same thing a
sound that "goes right
through to your bones" and
they always went out to see
the performances.
In 1998, Rock Bottom
played the High Side Cafe on
Route 301, and during a
break, he told Mislyan their
group was pretty good.
And they had never met,

The all-cop band is made up of "Iron" Mike Kahl on bass
(Sarasota), Dave Tuggle on guitar (Osprey), "Sizzlin" Steve
Mislyan on guitar and vocals (Sarasota) and "Special" Ed
Jackson on drums (Venice).


according to Mislyan.
"I felt a little guilty because
here was this local legend, but
I knew he hadn't seen us live,"
Mislyan said. "I asked him
again, 'How would you
know?'
"Rock was a big, old guy
with a beard. He got in my
face, and said very slowly and
in a rising tone, 'People I
know, whose opinions I re-
spect, say you do my songs


and do them well. So keep
doing it.' It blew me away."
Rock Bottom died of heart
attack upon returning from a
' gig Sept. 15, 2001, recalls Mis-
lyan.
"The next night we had a
gig in Sarasota and when it
came to his songs, I welled
up," Mislyan said. "Here I am

Manager heralded
for stopping thief
An grocery store manager
is credited with stopping a
robber," a Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office report shows.
Keith H. Eck, 39,4200 block
Mercury Road, Venice, was
arrested and charged with
robbery and aggravated bat-
tery.
The incident happened at
Albertsons Food & Drug, 1590
U.S. 41 Bypass, Venice, at 6:14
p.m. Jan. 29.
According to the police re-
port, witnesses saw Eck walk
around the store, pick up
items and conceal them un-
der a jacket in the cart, then
leave the store without going
through the checkout line.
The manager followed Eck
outside and asked him to
come back inside the store.
Eck refused and kept on walk-
ing. The manager grabbed the
cart and struggled with Eck.
Eck reached inside the cart
and whacked the manager in
the head with a heavy steel
bicycle lock.
The manager was finally
able to subdue Eck and hold
him until deputies arrived. ,
The manager needed
stitches in his head.n
Eck said he needed med-
ical attention. Paramedics
checked him out and said he
was not hurt. Eck said his leg
was broken but he was able to
walk. He said he was prone to
seizures and appeared to
have one.
However, he apparently
was not incapacitated, be-
cause he tried to get out of the
patrol car.
At the jail, Eck told another


inmate, "I don't understand
why they can charge me with
robbery when I was only
shoplifting."

BLUES from page 10A

humorous song called 'Gator
Tail.'
"I guess I felt like now we
are carrying the torch. We are
the native blues band in the
area. I thought, we've got to
keep doing this for the sake of
the art form."

Credentials
Blues Pig began as an ama-
teur band. A bunch of police
officers letting off a little
steam. With the exception of
Special Ed.
Drummer Ed Jackson hails
from New Orleans. He played
in bands since high school,
and went on to open for Big
Bad Voodoo Daddy and Sting.
He's played Tipitina's and at
the Jazz Fest, famous venues
in New Orleans. A scrawny
kid named Harry Connick Jr.
was a fewyears behind him in
high school.
"You're immersed in that
whole thing when you grow
up in New Orleans," said
Jackson, a former news cam-
eraman who "got tired of
always being the observer."
Jackson loves being a cop,
he said, and appreciates how
his job in Sarasota County
allows him the liberty of being
proactive.
'A good cop has to have
compassion. It's the same
thing older bluesmen sing
about."
Co-founder Steve Mislyan


has both compassion and an
outstanding record at Long-
,boat. He was honored on Jan.
26 as the Longboat Key Police
officer of the year.
"Word gets around," Jack-
son said. "We don't market
ourselves."

house in Tampa, Blues Pig

Condos to replace Honoluana Tiki Bar and Restaurant in Nokomis


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST


One of the last remaining
old Florida-style waterfront
restaurant communities is
about to be torn down and
replaced by condominiums.
The Dona Bay complex at
504 South Tamiami Trail
occupies almost 2 acres at the
junction of Bayview Parkway
and Tamiami Trail in Noko-
mis. Trendy & Trendy LLC of
Blackburn Point in Osprey is
planning to construct 18 lux-
ury condominiums in three-
story buildings. An additional
entrance is being constructed
from Bayview Parkway.
Only five of the new con-
dominiums, which range in
price from $650,000 to $1.1
million, remain unsold.
The complex includes the
Honoluana Tiki Bar and
Restaurant and Dona Bay
Outfitters of Nokomis.
"There will be one building
housing all the condos to-
gether with offices and my
new 2,500-square-foot store,
Dona Bay Outfitters, will be
nearer U.S. 41," said owner
Shane Steinberg. "I've been
here over five years, but I don't
know what it's going to do to
me without the restaurant,
which is not being included,
because there's not enough
parking space."
Dave and Valerie Thomp-
son acquired the restaurant a
year ago from Todd Byler.
Admitting he was aware of the
project, Thompson said he is
searching around the Venice
area looking to relocate his
restaurant, which has be-
come a popular place for local
folks to enjoy casual dining
and entertainment.
Thompson also confirmed
he is to operate. a new fine-
dining restaurant that will be
part of the marina develop-
ment complex being built on
Blackburn Point Road in Os-
prey.


Condos will replace businesses, including the Honoluana Tiki
Bar and Restaurant, when the Dona Bay complex is redevel-
oped.

OUR VIEW



One-strike policy has several strikes against it


M aurissa Boggess is being evicted by the
Venice Housing Authority because po-
lice officers found a marijuana plant in
her apartment.
Tough luck, you might say, and we would
tend to agree with you, even after throwing a
few additional facts into the mix:
Boggess has two young children and is
going to have a hard time finding an afford-
able place to live if she has to leave Grove
Terrace.
The police were at her apartment
responding to 9-1-1 calls because she was
beaten and stabbed by her boyfriend, who
also beat her babysitter. The boyfriend,
Christopher Boylen, is facing four felony
charges and two misdemeanors.
Boggess, who wasn't charged with any-
thing, says she didn't know the pot plant
was in the apartment, and would have
thrown it out before the cops got there if she
had.


Those certainly would qualify as mitigat-
ing factors if the VHA didn't have a one-strike
policy a single criminal or drug violation
associated with an apartment will get the
leaseholder thrown out. It's a standard rule in
public housing across the nation.
Now, we're not talking about a conviction;
an arrest is enough to trigger the policy.
(There are rumors about criminal activity by
other VHA residents who have not been
evicted, but apparently nothing that has
resulted in an arrest.)
That certainly makes sense, up to a point.
People who live in public housing are entitled
to safe surroundings, and the use of govern-
ment property to conduct criminal activity
should not be tolerated.
That's not where the line is drawn, howev-
er. According to the eviction papers served on
Boggess, any criminal or drug-related activity
by a tenant, household member or guest, on
or off the premises, would be grounds for


eviction, with the VHA as judge and jury and
the presumption of innocence out the win-
dow.
Whoa.
Leaving aside our qualms about due
process, we endorse evicting tenants who
commit crimes on the premises. And it
makes sense to evict those who take their
criminal activities off the premises. But then
we start to have some problems.
Boggess' case is still an easy one. Even if
she didn't know Boylen was keeping a mari-
juana plant which we find pretty unlikely
- she should have, and is responsible for
what he did in the apartment because she
was letting him stay there.
Let's change the facts, though. Instead of a
marijuana plant in the apartment, suppose it
was a joint in Boylen's pocket and Boggess
truly didn't know about it: As we see it, that
wouldn't make any difference under the one-
strike policy.


Or, suppose Boylen were arrested trying to
buy pot off the premises. Same result, it
would seem.
In fact, the way we read the one-strike pol-
icy, the VHA could have evicted Boggess sole-
ly because Boylen assaulted her, since that
"threatened the health, safety and peaceful
enjoyment of VHAs property by other resi-
dents or employees ...."
We surely hope that isn't the case. Sarasota
County has a serious problem with domestic
violence, and the last thing battered women
or men need is another reason not to call law
enforcement.
While we feel sorry for Boggess and her
children, we're not going to make the case
for allowing her to stay, though under the
circumstances the VHA could easily let her.
But we do think it's time for a hard look at
housing rules that see little difference
between a drug dealer and a domestic vio-
lence victim.

Coincidentally, while I was
in the clerk's office, Herb Le-
vine brought in a letter re-
questing an appeal. Council
member John Moore also
arrived, and we agreed that
the requirement had a chill-
ing effect on the possibility of
appeals by citizens.
Moore had advocated for
the city code to be changed to
call for a complete or "de
novo" appeal, which properly
puts the responsibility for
such important decisions on
elected officials. He was sur-
prised to learn of the fee,
since no appeals had been
filed since the code was
amended and the issue had
not arisen, and discussion of
possible fees was held about
two years ago.
Council had asked city staff
to explore a fee to prevent
frivolous appeals, on the ad-
vice of City Attorney Bob
Anderson, and the fee was
later included in a multi-page
change of the Land Develop-
ment Code that was approved
Oct. 8, 2003, without specific
discussion on this point. It
had been discussed at some
length before the staff was
asked to work on possible

rector Tom Slaughter says
correctly that each decision

it sets a logical and political

for an exception to 44 feet for

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Abortions up, and so are PP's profits


Editor:
What a wonderful service you are doing by giving free adver-
tisement to Planned Parenthood in two articles by regular
columnists in your paper. It is too bad that the information.
they provide about this benevolent organization is misleading
and full of inaccuracies.
The Unitarian minister's commentary has too much sloppy
thinking for me to respond to in a letter.
Lorraine Coccaro, who, if she ever needs another job, might
look into doing PR for Planned Parenthood, stated that
Planned Parenthood's goal is to educate so that abortion is
never needed. The education provided by Planned Parenthood
seems to have the opposite effect.
According to the Fiscal Year 2004 annual report for that,
organization, it is doing more abortions than ever: 34 percent
of its clinic revenue is from abortion, up 2 percent from 2003.
The number of abortions performed at Planned Parenthood
facilities increased by 6.1 percent, according to the FY 2004
report; while abortions nationwide have been decreasing since
1997.
Planned Parenthood ought to send the Gondolier Sun a.
dozen roses; or the price of a half-page ad, but it won't. It will
just keep lying to our kids and encouraging them to not tell
their parents about their sexual activity, pregnancy, STD or
abortion. And it'll keep making money off the pain of our chil-
dren, and the deaths of our unborn grandchildren.

14A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN


LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD CITY COUNCIL REJECT THE FOUR-STORY
BUILDING PROPOSED FOR DOWNTOWN? CALL 207-1111.

Do obnoxious bicyclists drive cars the same way?


The other foot. I have been bicycle rider for many years. As
riders we are taught at an early age to follow all traffic laws. All
riders from the age of 5-105 should know these rules. With all
of the additional building and the growing population of
Sarasota County and Venice in particular, I do not ride my bicy-
cle except on designated paths, as it is not safe on any roads
without a designated path. I drive to downtown Venice,
Nokomis, North Port, and I can always count on seeing an
adult bicycle rider doing something that is not in the rules. If I
honk, they get disgusted at me and holler or give the single-fin-
ger salute. Many times I have wanted to stop and ask them to
ride properly, but I am afraid I would need the police. I would
just like to see how these riders drive their cars. Do they follow
traffic laws? What do they do when they see fellow bicycle rid-
ers coming toward them in the wrong direction, riding through
stop signs and traffic signals?


Listen and learn. To im-
prove services, the first step is
for all of us to advocate posi-
tive suggestions while appre-
ciating that everyone has dif-
ferent opinions on this goal.
We should all respect and
consider other citizens' views
and suggestions with good
communications. We should
all understand there is a cost
factor of tax dollars involved
in tiany well-intended ideas,
projects or suggestions to
improve services to the com-
munity. We all need to find
common ground and listen
and learn from one another
and find compromise, as we
all love and care about our
wonderful city of Venice.
Learn by doing. How
wrong is the letter to the edi-
tor, City could be asking for
trouble by hiring someone
without the appropriate de-
gree? That is crazy. This wom-
an has worked for that
department for more than 20
years, has gone to continuing
education classes and kept up
with current laws. I believe
most learning comes after
you get out of college, when
you are in the job and doing it.
It is one thing to learn out of a
book, but another thing to
learn from real life, by doing.
This woman could run this
department, no problem, if
she has been there for 20
years. I disagree with the letter
writer. The city would not be

in trouble. If she wants that
position, let her apply for it.
Look around. I just read the
newspaper and I love Let'em
Have It. This one was ad-
dressed to me. I am the pilot's
wife. Someone responded to
me. I can only say to the indi-
viduals who hate the noise
problem at the airport, Venice
is growing big and the airport
is growing too. This is 2005
and it is time for the people
who constantly complain
about the airport to stop and
look around. This area is
growing. The world is grow-
ing.
If you don't like the airport
noise, I can understand, but
we should all grow up and
face what is around you. You
don't need to be sedentary
and stay around where you
don't like it. I can understand
people's complaints. A lot of
people in Venice are nearing
the end of their lives. Quit
fighting it. Stop and smell the
roses. Look at the sailboats


going by. As I speak I can hear
airplanes going over. As to the
people complaining about
the noise, relax, the airport is
not going anywhere.
Reality. I am calling with
the rebuttal to the person who
thinks we should take our
beach renourishment money
and send it to Asia. I think that
money should stay here and
separate funds be sent. We
need to look at the reality of it.
If we had a tsunami wash
across us, who would be help-
ing us? Let us face the facts:

just about nobody. We may
get a few official condolences.
We are a country rich enough
to help ourselves. These for-
eign countries are the first to
,put down America the first
chance they get. That is reali-
ty, not an opinion.
Step back. Kudos to the
Gondolier Sun's two editorials
about how promoting some-
one with a high school diplo-
ma to be our next financial
director, managing a $64 mil-
lion budget, is irresponsible,
unprofessional and a giant
step backward. Doing this
would undermine any credi-
bility council enjoys and con-
firm the idea 'that they are
part of the good old boy sys-
tem.
Shame. In reply to the
female who called to say only
males oppose abortion: I am a
female who opposes abor-
tion. Shame on her and fe-
males who support abortion.
They are in the minority who
feel they can do what they
want with their bodies.

IMARTIN from page 13A
grounds would they deny
others?
From a Main Street of
charming, primarily one- or
two-story buildings at about
20 feet, this decision can real-
istically lead to a series of
buildings twice that height.
City Manager Marty Black
commented on the planning
commission decision: "I was
surprised the approval did
not draw more public com-
ment. This is a critical part of
the city. Actually, I was disap-
pointed there was not more
comment." (emphasis added)
Only Peter Macdonald, a
Venice resident who has serv-
ed on city committees and
whose background includes
service on boards of zoning
and similar jurisdiction in
Massachusetts, resisted the
precedent-setting exception
before the planning commis-
sion. Eleven letters sent by
downtown businesses- sup-
ported the proposed build-
ing.
Commissioner Larry
Grimard was quoted in the
Gondolier Sun as saying,
"What better evidence can
you have other than neigh-
bors of the property support-
ing it?" I think an answer
might be that neighboring
property owners might see
the possibilities for expand-
ing their own properties with
similar buildings, so their
support may not be without
self-interest and should not
be seen as indicative of broad
public support.
In fact, council is aware
that most citizens express


resistance to additional taller
buildings. It proposed last
year that buildings alongWest
Venice Avenue between U.S.
41 and Harbor Drive be limit-
ed to 35 feet. Under council's
direction the city's planning
staff is also preparing a plan
for a 35-foot limitation be-
tween Harbor Drive and the
beach. That plan will be pre-
sented in a workshop to the
planning commission in the
near future.
As that process moves for-
ward, this seems a particular-
ly poor time to be granting
exceptions.
Not the design
It should be pointed out, in
fairness, that the design sub-
mitted by the property own-
ers, Mike and Addy Griffith,
has appeal from a design
standpoint. That undoubted-
ly influenced the staff and
commission.
The second floor extends
to a line above the first floor
and the third and fourth
floors are set back, allowing
patios or balconies. It is not
the design of the building
from an aesthetic point of
view that raises the concern,
but rather the unnecessary
addition of a fourth floor and
the precedent- setting height
exception it requires.
The owners propose to
create two condominiums for
sale on the second floor and
live in a third condominium
on the third and fourth floors.
It would be quite possible to
redesign that third condo-
minium without using the
fourth floor, eliminating the
need for the variance and not


establishing an undesirable
precedent.
As Macdonald has pointed
out in the past to council and
the planning commission,
many citizens have difficulty
following the process of com-
menting and objecting on
such matters. The applicants,
naturally, have legal counsel
representing them. Ordinary
citizens do not usually have
the resources to make sophis-
ticated arguments.
Macdonald feels the city
should make this process
more citizen friendly, which
would encourage participa-
tion. I have, for example, sat
in such meetings where the
presenters took hours, often
giving extraneous statements
about their birthplaces, back-
grounds, etc., while citizens
waited to speak at the end of
the meeting for five minutes
each. All too frequently they
got tired and went home.
Now, we discover a $300 fee to
appeal a decision that will tip
the process even further
against ordinary citizens.
Many people attending the
Envision Venice meetings
have expressed concern
about heights. Hopefully, a
good number of people will
attend the council meeting, if
and when an appeal is heard,
and present their views.

TREE EXPERTS

FLORIDA TREE SERVICE

The Business Development Committee is proud of its role with the Chamber
in saluting dedicated area member businesses that have established a solid
professional reputation in our community.
Today, we bestow that honor to a 12 year Chamber member who's good
Samaritan effort saved-a Highlands County church thousands of dollars in
fending off a potential scam.
David Moore of Florida Tree Experts was asked-to consult St. James
Catholic Church in Lake Placid concerning a supposed tree insect infestation.
Moore learned from Parish officials that a Highlands County area tree
surgeon reported that their grove of approximately 100 trees were infested
with oak bugs which could only be eliminated by spraying. Further more, a
massive 20 year old Oak tree adjacent to the church entrance was so bad
it would have to be cut down. Total cost to the Parish for the project was
$18.000.
The Catholic Diocese of Venice asked David Moore, Florida Tree Experts
for a second opinion. Moore traveled to Lake Placid at his own expense,
inspected the cherished aged oak tree, and walked the expansive oak
groves. He reported to church officials that Hurricane Jeannie had caused
havoc to many trees, lightning had struck the old oak but there was no
infestation or dry rot and given time the trees would replenish themselves.
Florida Tree Experts are located at 400 E. Baffin Drive, Venice.

"Jerry" Hogan presided over the service.


This area's circus legacy
lives on at St. Martha's
Church.
Dubbed the U.SA. Circus
Church, St. N lartha's is located
on the southeast corner of
Orange Avenue and Fruitville
Road in Sarasota. Led by the
Reverend Fausto Stampiglia,
S.AC., the church annually
holds a special mass on what
has come to be known as
Circus Sunday. The 13th such
mass was held Jan. 9 at 10:30
a.m. in the main sanctuary.


The Rev. Fausto Stampiglia,
S.A.C. stands beside a circus
wagon presented to St.
Martha's Catholic Church, the
official U.S.A. Circus Church,
in 1970. ",

Other than the reserved
signs on a few pews at the
front of the church, and some
gaudy ties on a few of the men
seated in the sanctuary, it
might have been any other
Sunday morning service.
But when the processional
began, there was no doubt
that this service would be like
no other. Not only were there
far more priests than one
might expect at a regular Sun-
day morning service, these
priests were clad in the most
colorful robes I had ever seen.
One was wearing a robe of
orange fabric on which were
printed all sorts of colorful
circus images. Another was in
white but was wearing a stole
that looked like an Indy 500
racing flag black and white
checks. Stampiglia wore a
robe of blues and greens em-
blazoned with circus motifs
and the words, Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Priests who were robed in tra-
ditional white, accented
those white robes with color-
ful stoles featuring perform-
ing animals and other circus
themes.
Officiating over the service
was Father "Jerry" Hogan, the
National Circus Chaplain.
Hogan winters at St. Michael's
Church in North Andover,
Mass., but is always ready to


go where needed to minister
to his flock of circus perform-
ers, employees and their fam-
ilies. Hogan's stole and white
,robes were nothing short of
spectacularly elegant. His
stole featured sparkling lions,
tigers and elephants, match-
ing animals on either side. At
his back was a round plaque,
completely encrusted with
colorful sequins depicting a
circus tent but the most eye-
catching part of his outfit was
the chasuble, which was edg-
ed completely with gold ele-
phants, all in a row, standing
on the backs of the leading
elephants as they often do
during a performance.
Once the processional was
completed and the priests
had taken their places, the
service began. While it includ-
ed some presents to parish-
ioners and priests for their
service and devotion, plus a
communion service and the
prayers and songs befitting a
service on the Sunday follow-
ing Epiphany, the circus was
the featured attraction.
Stampiglia pointed out the
two circus wagon wheels that
hung on the wall behind the
alter. An embroidered red and
white circus tent adorned the
front of the communion
cloth. --
"We even had a little circus
here in the early days," Stam-
piglia said. "Tickets were 35
cents per person.
As he introduced the visit-
ing priests we learned that the
priest with the black and
white stole, Father Phillip
Derea, was NASCAR's official
chaplain as well as a circus
priest. Derea has been to all
13 circus services. He came
from Rome where he leads a
church outside the Vatican,
the Mission of the Sacred
Heat.
Father Richard Norter
came from Toledo, Ohio,
where he serves the St. Peter
and Paul Church. He has
been in the circus ministry for
14 years, traveling with the
circus a few days at a time he
said.
In addition to serving The
Greatest Show on Earth's
three main traveling shows,
the Red, Blue and Gold Units,
most circus priests also min-
ister to performers in the
smaller circuses that criss-
cross the country.
Notter had just come back
from the Eastern States Expo-
sition of the Circus in Spring-
field, Mass., and often serves
a few days a year with the Cir-
cus Flora in St. Louis. When I
spoke with him after the ser-
vice, he said that he regularly
travels to circus perfor-
mances in northern Ohio and


Kitty and Charlie Smith of Nokomis drove to Sarasota to attend
the special circus mass. Smith was the trainmaster of The
Greatest Show on Earth for many years.


National Circus Chaplain Father Jerry Hogan officiated at the circus mass Jan. 9. His robes were
decorated with gold-embroidered elephants and his stole was trimmed with lions, tigers and
elephants made of hand-appliqued sequins.


southern Michigan.
"It's a long story," he said,
"but my association with the
circus started started down
here in Florida."
He was in Ruskin to coun-
sel migrant workers who
would be heading to Ohio,
when he was asked to baptize
a baby in Tampa. The child
belonged to a circus per-
former. Soon, the nun who
had arranged the baptism
was calling on him regularly
to minister to other circus
performers.
"One thing led to another,"
he said.
The priest with the colorful
orange garb was Father Gavin
Griffith who was honored
during the service for his 40th
anniversary as a priest.
Also honored during the
service was Little Sister Pri-
scila who has served as a nun
for 50 years, ministering to
circus people for many of
those years.
Spotted in the audience
were Kitty. and Charlie Smith
of Nokomis. Charlie Smith
was the circus train master for
many years and Kitty worked
on many costumes for the
Ringling show. Also in the
audience was clown Jackie
LeClair, who works with Cir-
cus Sarasota to train new
clowns., ,
Hogan spoke about all the
cultures represented within
the circus.
"When we blend those cul-
tures, you have the circus," he
said. "You (circus people) can
work as individuals and as a
community."
Known as the "Circus
Priest," Hogan celebrated his
silver jubilee in 1999. A circus
fan as a child, he joined the
Circus Fans of America in


1990 and began correspond-
ing with Circus Chaplain Jack
Toner, whom he would suc-
ceed in 1993.
Hogan spoke of three key
circus people who died dur-
ing the past year, saying how
they represented the diversity,
of ages and talents within the
field: Bobby Gibbs, Dessi
Espana and Father lack Toner.
Gibbs, 65, rose through the
circus ranks as a horse
groomer and an assistant ele-
phant trainer with John Her-
rion. He performed a Zebu


Liberty act, trained many
other animals and worked
with the Wallenda family.
Espana, 32, an aerialist, fell
while performing in St. Paul,
Minn. Hogan had been in
Baraboo, Wis., but said he felt
an "urging to get to St. Paul
earlier than planned.
"I was with her and spoke
with her one-half hour before
she died," he said. "I was there
when she fell."
Later he presided at her

VES principal shares love of reading with students


BYSHARI VALENCIC-URSEL
SCHOOL CORRESPONDENT

Venice Elementary Princi-
pal Theresa Baus is proud
of her "teacher roots." She
. maintains an active teaching
certification, takes contin-
uing education classes in
teaching methods and often
volunteers to take over class-
rooms when one of her
teachers is absent or has an
emergency. Having been in
administration for eight
years leaves her "itching" for
the things she misses about
being in the classroom: close-
ness to a class of students,
watching kids learn for the
first time and planning read-
ing activities.
To satisfy the latter, Baus
began Venice Elementary's
Principal's Book Club at the
start of the school year to
relay her love of reading and
encourage students to read
for pleasure. In September,
Baus kicked off the Book
Club with fifth grade and
"The Indian in the Cup-
board." Each student re-
ceived a copy of the book.
In October, each fourth-

grader received "Because of
Winn Dixie," and in Novem-
ber, each student in grade
three was given "Donavan's
Word Jar." The purchase of
the books is made possible
through grants and school
funds.
Each week, Baus reads to
students, via the school
news broadcast, excerpts
from chapters that were pre-
viously assigned. She then
assigns more reading home-
work from the novel to stu--
dents.
As students progress
through the book and the
month, Baus offers reading
incentives. In November,
when she read "Donavan's
Word Jar" with grade three,
she kept a glass "word jar"
in the office where students
and staff could write down
and drop in their own inter-
esting words. Baus then
would bring these into the
televised discussion to share
with all students. Students
of all ages, and even the sci-
ence instructor; added
vocabulary words to the
brimming container by
month's end.


Teachers involved appre-
ciate her involvement in
their reading programs. "Her
leadership makes the reading
more important," comment-
ed Marie Naple, a fifth-grade
teacher. Third-grade teacher
Tatum Slack agreed, "The
students absolutely enjoyed
the book. They were very
excited to discuss the words
that filled 'Donavan's Word
Jar.' "
To celebrate the comple-
tion of the novel, students,
their teachers and Baus get
together on campus for a
fete. To culminate "The
Indian in the Cupboard," the
Venice High School mascot
joined students for breakfast.
Southeastern Guide Dogs
put on a demonstration for
"Because ofWinn Dixie" read-
ers in grade four. These spe-
qial events are coordinated
by school and community
volunteers.
The Venice Elementary
Principal's Book Club will
continue throughout the rest
of the year. The primary
grades will each be the focus
of the winter or spring
months.

Did you know that 1,200
Americans die every day
from smoking and exposure
to secondhand smoke? That
is one person every 72 sec-
onds.
As part of a campaign to
raise awareness about the
terrible toll that tobacco use
continues to take in health
and lives, the Campaign for
Tobacco-Free Kids has intro-
duced bright red rubber
wristbands that are imprint-
ed with the number 1,200. A
growing number of people
across the country are wear-
ing the wristbands to take a
stand against tobacco. People
are wearing the wristbands

The wristbands are avail-
able for $1 each online at
tobaccofreekids.org. Pro-
ceeds benefit the Campaign
for Tobacco-Free Kids, a non-
profit organization dedicated
to protecting children from
tobacco addiction and saving
lives by reducing tobacco use
and exposure to secondhand
smoke.
Smoking kills more peo-
ple than alcohol, AIDS, car
accidents, illegal drugs, mur-
ders and suicides combined.


Tobacco use is the leading
preventable cause of death
in the United States, killing
more than 400,000 Amer-
icans and costing the nation
more than $75 billion in
health care bills each year.
Ninety percent of smokers
start at or before the age of
18. Every day, another 2,000
kids become regular smok-
ers, and one-third of them
will die prematurely as a
result.
"The 1,200 wristband
serves as a constant re-
minder of the devastating


toll that tobacco takes on
our chil-dren and our fami-
lies," said Matthew L. Myers,
president of the Campaign
for Tobacco-Free Kids.
"Wearing the wristband is a
simple yet empowering way
for kids and adults to take a
stand against tobacco. It is a
reminder of those we have
lost to tobacco, a symbol of
commitment and encour-
agement for those trying to
quit and ah expression of
support for effective action
against this serious prob-
lem."

STAFF REPORT

"Doctor" Sam Johnson
was seeing patients at the
Venice Nokomis United
Methodist Child Care Center
recently. The doctor not only
helps people get well, he also
operates on animals (stuffed).
This is one of Sam's favorite
"prop boxes" to play with.
A prop box is a box filled
with a variety of items used
by adults. These props help
children to pretend and use
their imagination, while imi-


tating the adults in their lives.
Some of the benefits to
using these boxes are to en-
hance social, language and
imagination skills.
Donations are being
sought for items relating to
gardening, office work, bak-
ing, the beach, birthday par-
ties, beauty shop, carpentry,
grocery cashier and post
office.
The prop boxes are rotat-
ed weekly in each classroom
and are the highlight of the

LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT


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

Many parents share their
own personal testimony.
Here's a recent account of a
parent that wants to know
how to handle student learn-
ing:
My child is not doing well
in school. He has been getting
into trouble with his teacher;
who says he does not follow
directions and cannot work
independently. She has sug-
gested that he may need to be
held back in school this year. I
am very frustrated with his
teacher, because I think his
behavior is related to his not
being challenged. He seems
very bright. Maybe he is just
bored, or perhaps he has a
learning disability and cannot
understand or remember
what the teacher is asking
him to do. How should I han-
dle this problem?
Solution?
Many parents think that if
their child appears to be
bright he is ready to begin


school, and will automatically
have a successful kinder-
garten experience. They are
shocked when they attend
the mid-year parent confer-
ence and receive less than
glowing reports from a
teacher.
Some parents immediately
blame the teacher for not giv-
ing the child more advanced,
stimulating work. They pro-
test that the poor behavior is
most likely due to the type of
work he is being asked to do.
"He's bored because the work
is too easy."
Others may suspect their
child has a learning disability,
and that the teacher may be
expecting him to pay atten-
tion, follow directions, and
stay focused when he isn't
capable. Some of these par-
ents may decide to ask the
school or a private psycholo-
gist to test their child.
In fact, the teacher herself
may be attempting to deter-
mine whether the child's per-
formance is related to some-
thing behavioral, neurologi-
cal, or developmental.
Questions
Is it behavioral? Is his prob-
lem because he wasn't taught
by his parents to be patient
and wait his turn? Have they
not required him to attempt
to do things on his own, with-
out them hovering over him?
Is he so used to having all the
attention at home that he isn't
able to proceed without it at
school?
Is it neurological? Does he
have a learning disability that
requires special instructional
methods, and possibly med-
ication?
Is it developmental? Did he
start school before he was
physically, mentally and.


emotionally ready?
Teacher assessment
What teachers do know for
certain is that when a child
requires lots of her attention,
due to not following direc-
tions and not being able to
work independently, that
child is functioning at a seri-
ous disadvantage.
The first, most important
thing that needs to happen
for learning to take place is to
get the child's behavior under
control, regardless of the
cause.
To do this the teacher must
have the cooperation of the
parents. Parents who choose
to spend time supporting
excuses for their child's be-
havior, i.e., saying he's bored
or may have a learning dis-
ability, are wasting precious
learning time. They are harm-
ing their child, rather than
helping him, by not dealing
immediately with the issue at
hand. They are also setting
themselves and their child up
for a very difficult future.
Being "bored," or having a
learning disability is not a
good reason for poor behav-
ior in school. Most children
with learning disabilities can
be taught by their parents to
behave appropriately.
However, it may be more
difficult to teach this child to
have patience, not interrupt
others, listen, follow direc-
tions and focus for longer
periods of time. More re-
wards, i.e. praise for good be-
havior, and consequences for
not following rules, may be
needed.
In the process, parents
may learn much more about
the limits of their own pa-

Lemon Bay High School cast members of "Seussical: The Musical" react after hearing they have
been invited to perform their production at the Florida State Thespian Festival at the Tampa
Center for Performing Arts in April.

Zizzer-zazzer-zuzz! LBHS Tampa-bound


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Jennifer Kelly hid as Lem-
on Bay High School Principal
Dan Jeffers read the letter
Thursday afternoon, staging a
disappointing announce-
ment.
"The Florida State Thes-
pian Mainstage Screening
Committee is pleased to
invite ...," Jeffers read.
Screams, joyful shouts,
hugs and tears followed.
The school's theater group


had been hoping for good
news, but knowing they were
up against professional per-
forming arts schools with
unlimited funds and re-
sources, their chance of re-
ceiving the honor seemed
unlikely, said Kelly, head of
the theater department.
"It's so surreal," said stu-
dent Melissa Gardiner. "There
are not words to explain the
feeling. My heart can't stop
racing. It's so amazing."
After Kelly explained to her
students the magnitude of


their accomplishment, Jeffers
continued to read.
"You never heard where
you're invited," he said.
"Your troupe to present
your production of'Seussical:
The Musical' at the Florida
State Thespian Festival to be
held in downtown Tampa. As
of now, you will tentatively
perform in the Tampa Center
for the Performing Arts in the
Ferguson Theater on Thurs-
day, April 7, with a 7:30 p.m.

Marathon-prep nightmare the flu


STAFF REPORT


So, you've started off the
new year right with a new
exercise regimen. Great!
Are you exercising at the
appropriate exercise intens-
ity to achieve the goals that
you have set out for yourself?
Make sure you're not just
going through the motions,
but that you are truly pushing
yourself enough to make
progress.
These are the things that
you want to be sure that you
are doing regarding exercise
intensity:
Cardiovascular exercise
- If you are using the
Karvonen Target Heart Rate


Formula we provided at the
beginning of the Venice
Gondolier Sun-South County
YMCA Health Challenge, be
sure you're staying within the
target heart rate zone of 65-
85 percent. If you are using
the Rate of Perceived Exer-
tion Scale we provided at the
beginning of the program,
remember you should be
working at a level you per-
ceive as somewhere between
somewhat strong and strong.
You can fluctuate between
these levels of exertion in
order to work yourself up to
increasing your cardiovascu-
lar capacity.
Strength training -
When you're conducting


your strength exercises, you
must tax the muscle in order
to stimulate muscle growth
and strength gains. Our gen-
eral guideline is one-two
sets of 10-15 or 12-15 repeti-
tions of each strength exer-
cise. That means that if you
can do 15 repetitions at a
given weight and it is no
longer challenging, do not
do more repetitions; add
weight and go back to to 10
or 12 repetitions.
The last one or two reps
of each set should be quite
challenging, but not so hard
as to compromise proper
form.
Good luck and keep up the
good work.


Venetian Waterway Park riders


COURTESY PHOTO
Riders gather near Venice Avenue Bridge for the start of the Venetian Waterway Park ride
recently on a foggy morning. Nearly two dozen riders participated in the run to spread
awareness and information about the bike path. Still under construction, the path dead
ends in several spots leaving unfamiliar walkers or riders unsure of where to go.
Volunteers are working to create a temporary trail map showing these segments.

thing that needs scraped off
the bottom of your shoe.
No sick days for me, how-
ever. Like everyone else at
the Venice Gondolier Sun,
going from two editions each
week to three has greatly
increased the work load and
there's barely enough time
to breath that is .if my
sinuses would let me.
Working as a reporter
who's sick is tolerable. Do
more interviews by phone,
try not to move around so
much and write as quickly
as you can so you can go
home and sleep.
Last Thursday was when I
realized the running impli-
cations. Here I am just a
week out from running a
marathon, and I could barely
jog 2 miles Wednesday night.
Run or not to run
The training pace was right
on target Wednesday, after
going four days without a run
(two of those days were out of
laziness). The most worri-
some was how a 2-mile run
felt more like 10 or 12 miles.
A day off, and then Friday
the same thing happened,
only this time I made it up to
3.5 miles good pace, but
very tired.
I don't know many doctors,
let alone doctors who jog, so


once again I went to my
online runner's encyclopedia
- runnersworld.com. Ac-
cording to their experts," a
"case of the sniffles shouldn't
stop you from running."
Viral infections are the
ones that create the most-
concern. Skip running if
experiencing these symp-
toms, and consider seeing a
doctor: fever, deep body
aches and malaise.
Their advice is to use extra
caution. If symptoms are
above the neck, it's probably
a cold and you're OK for
easy runs. Below the neck,
like chills and body aches,
wait for symptoms to pass
because it could be the flu.
Guess I should've looked
up their advice before run-
ning last week.
I have no idea how this
will affect my goal mara-thon
time Feb. 6 in Tampa. My
*Monday training run went
well without any excessive
tiredness.
No matter what happens,
at least now I have a excuse
for finishing well in back of
the Back of the Pack on
marathon day.

Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
,Q54 32 4A106
Your left-hand opponent's one-dia-
mond opening bid is passed around to
you. What action do you take?
A That depends on what your
methods are in the balancing seat.
Most play that a simple one-level bid
can show as few as 7 points, and use
an upper limit of 11 points. All
stronger hands start with a double,
and that would be the action here.
Q 2 Both vulnerable, you hold:
6AK762 vQ 0 AK96 41032
Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one heart. What action
do you take?
A With your queen of hearts a
questionable asset, all you can do
with your good hand is overcall one
spade. However, if your queen of
hearts were, say, the queen of clubs,
we would prefer a takeout double.'
Q 3 East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:
6AK9 vK OA9863 4KQ64
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 1V Pass
What do you bid now?
A You could bid two clubs and hope
that partner will bid again. However,
should partner then simply take a
preference to two diamonds, you will
be in' a quandary about what to do
next. We prefer a slightly off-shape
two no trump to any other action.
Q 4 Neither vulnerable, you hold:


4K73 K95 o AK3 4"K964
Partner opens the bidding with one
club. What do you respond?
A Actually, there is a bid to handle
this. A jump to three no trump shows
a hand with a 4-3-3-3 and 16-19
points. This is the hand designers of
the method had in mind.
Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
67 vAJ106 0o872 *A10654


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 1NT
34 Pass ?


WEST
Pass


What do you bid now?
A This is not the time for some
fancy cue-bid like three hearts and
then tell partner about your club sup-
port later. Your first job is to set the
trump suit, which will permit a cue-
bidding sequence should partner
deem it necessary. Bid four clubs.
Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
6 KJ64 v AJ75 AK74 4 10
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 1NT Pass
What action -do you take?
A North can have 9-10 points fac-
ing your 16 but think for a moment.
North has denied four cards in either
major and perhaps in diamonds as
well. Since North's length is in
clubs, where is your source of tricks?
Pass.

CHURCH frompage 1B


funeral at Epiphany Ca-
thedral in Venice. Espana was
a resident of Englewood. Her
family, including her chil-
dren, is continuing the family
tradition in the circus, Hogan
said.
Toner, 90, was Hogan's pre-
decessor as the circus priest
and mentor.
In 1990, Hogan wanted to
meet the Legendary Gunther
Gebel-Williams, who was
having his farewell tour that
year. When Toner invited
Hogan.to celebrate mass for


the circus at the beginning of
that year's tour, the seed was
planted that would elevate
him to circus priest when
Toner retired. Hogan cele-
brated mass for the circus
every year after that, before
being officially named chap-
lain.
When Gebel-Williams died
in July 2001, Hogan came to
Venice to officiate at the
funeral of the world-famous
Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey Circus animal trainer
at Our Lady of Lourdes
Church on Center Road.
Later that year Hogan con-
soled producers, performers
and workers of the Big Apple
Circus days after the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks in New York,
the circus' home base.
While the circus chaplains
have consistently been Cath-
olic, their denomination has


never been so important as
their familiarity.
Hogan, Toner and Sullivan
have each on occasion held
services with the assistance of
those of other faiths and for
those of other faiths:
When Ringling circus own-
er Irvin Feld died in Venice in
1984, Toner officiated at that
funeral, reading from the
Jewish service book.
Hogan has continued that
tradition. He has calmed
frightened performers when
tragedy has struck, baptized
babies, performed marriages,
offered eulogies and blessed
the circus before it went on
the road each year.
Marriage counseling takes
on a new twist when the mar-
riage means that one of the
couple has to destroy a family
act by leaving it to marry.
No longer a townyy," the


term used to describe non-
circus folks, Hogan has been
accepted as one of them for
that is what he has become.
When tragedy has struck, he
has been there.
He still spends about two-
thirds of his time at the North
Andover rectory from which
he came but the rest of the
time he serves the circus
community, drawing his pay
from the U.S. Catholic Con-
ference.
The Catholic Church puts
a priority on serving itinerant
works, partly because many
of them are Catholic. In the
case of the circus, it has been
estimated that some 65 per-
cent of circus workers are
Catholic.
The other traveling min-
istries grew from the circus
ministry begun by Sullivan.
Hogan is the fourth to serve


as Circus Chaplain, following,
Sullivan, Dave Hennessy and
Toner.
Hogan travels more than
70,000 miles annually with
various shows, yet is away-
from his parish just seven
weekends a year.
He shares parish duties
with two other priests and
does -most of his traveling
mid-week.
love mriy priesthood and
love the circus," he said. "To
be able to combine both is a
real blessing. In March I begin
my 13th year as the Circus
Chaplain. I just hang with
them. I sit on an elephant tub
and they get to know me.
They know me as a chaplain
and as a human being."

All vaccinations carry risks for felines


BY DR. TRACY ACOSTA
GUEST COLUMNIST
Vaccinations for pets re-
main one of the cornerstones
of preventative veterinary
medicine today; however,
around 1991 veterinarians
started to notice a higher than
expected number of injection
site sarcomas (tumors) in
vaccinations to cats.
A sarcoma is a malignant
tumor that can develop and
spread quickly. Even after sur-
gical removal, recurrence is a
common complication.
In response to this prob-
lem, veterinarians, research-
ers and manufacturers have
explored the reasons why this
happens in anywhere from
one in 1,000 to one in 10,000
cats that receive an injection.
It is important to note that
initially only vaccines were
implicated as causing the sar-
comas. Now it has been
shown that any type of injec-
tion can result in an injection
site sarcoma in cats.


Research has demonstrat-
ed that these sarcomas are
the result of an exaggerated
response by the cats' immune
systems. Besides the inflam-
matory response that can be
caused by an injection, the
use of adjuvants was also
noted as a possible cause of
the sarcomas. Adjuvants are
chemicals that enhance an
animal's immune system re-
sponse. So, recently the con-
cern has been focused on the
two major potential risks in-
volved with vaccines: injec-
tion site inflammation and
the use of adjuvants.
The newest feline leuke-
mia vaccine promises to offer
much hope: Merial's (maker
of Frontline and Heartguard)
new non-adjuvanted PURE-
VAX. Leukemia Vaccine that is
administered with the VET
JET transdermal system defi-
nitely addresses the two ma-
jor risk factors of feline vacci-
nations.
First, it is administered
without the use of needles. It


delivers a low-volume dose of
vaccine through a tiny orifice
into the cat's skin, subcuta-
neous tissue and muscle in
less than a second.
Through this method, the
vaccine is deposited into the
immune-cell-rich layers of
skin and underlying tissue.
Secondly the vaccine does
not contain adjuvants.
It is important for all cat
owners to remember that fe-
line leukemia is a highly con-
tagious viral disease that can
drastically impair the im-
mune system. This deadly
virus spreads easily through
social grooming, shared food
and water bowls, bite wounds
and common litter boxes (or
common potty locations out-
doors). Kittens also can con-
tract feline leukemia from
their mothers while still in the
womb as well as through
nursing and by grooming.
Feline leukemia contrib-
utes to other infectious dis-
eases by suppressing the im-
mune system. It can also


cause a deadly anemia by
suppressing bone marrow
production.
For cats that contract fe-
line leukemia, 50 percent die
within six months and the
others usually within three
years. With these types of
facts it is critical to discuss
with your veterinarian your
cat's risk factors and decide if
the feline leukemia vaccine
should be a part of your cat's
vaccination protocol.
Another critical point for
all cat owners to realize is the
importance of knowing your
cat's feline leukemia and FIV
(feline immunodeficiency vi-
rus) status. All cats/kittens
should be tested through a
simple clinic blood test. Once
your cat's status is known,
your veterinarian can recom-
mend when and how often
your cat will need to be retest-
.ed.

Medications have side effects

on pets, as well as humans


BY SHAWN MESSONNIER
GUEST COLUMNIST
Q: I've recently stopped us-
ing Vioxx because it has been
linked to heart attacks. Are
drugs such as Vioxx safe for
pets?
A: While pets are not pre-
scribed Vioxx and Celebrex
for arthritis, they are pre-
scribed similar nonsteroidal
medications, including
Rimadyl, Etogesic and Dera-
maxx
Though these drugs have
not been shown to cause
heart problems or strokes in
pets, they are still associated
with an array of serious and
potentially fatal side effects.
The side effects most likely
to cause problems include
gastrointestinal problems
(ulcers and perforations of
the stomach and intestines);
kidney problems (including
kidney failure); and liver
problems (including liver
failure). These drugs may


also damage cartilage, mak-
ing arthritis worse. Reading
the package insert from both
human and animal non-
steroidal drugs clearly in-
forms doctors about these
potential problems.
The package inserts fur-
ther state several important
points:
Side effects are more com-
mon in older pets.
Side effects are more com-
mon for pets receiving other
medications (especially for
heart disease and high blood
pressure control).
Pets should not use the
medications for more than a
few days unless the diagnosis
is confirmed.
The lowest effective dose
should be used. This is typi-
cally much lower than the
label dose.
While these medicines can
be used safely in pets, I pre-
scribe them infrequently. For
arthritis, joint supplements
are safer and more effective.

curtain time."
The time was tentative, but
the honor was definitive.
LBHS Theater is one of six
chosen out of 30 throughout
the state to perform.
"You are the first group
from Tampa-south ever to be
invited." Jeffers emphasized.
Their victory is the fifth
year the drama team repre-
sented the district in some
form at the state festival, but
this will be the first time it will,
present an entire show, said
Kelly, who is also a 1993 LBHS
graduate.
Kelly said the group previ-
ously had been invited to do
30-minute productions,
opening ceremonies and


mime closing ceremonies,
but never a whole show.
In order to gain the honor,
professional judges came to
critique the musical here. Two
critiques came back.
"I think that Ms. Kelly's in-
terpretation was flawless arid
right on target with the text of
this show," said one judge.
"Once again, my favorite
ensemble group in the show
had to be the Wickersham
brothers," the document stat-
ed. "These young men (Chris
Cornell and Patrick Bolger)
worked very well as a team,
especially in their choreo-
graphed sequences."
The two were elated.
"It's such a big deal," Chris
Cornell said. "It's so awe-
some."


Lemon Bay will also per-
form at 6 p.m. Saturday at the
North Port Performing Arts
Center in against 14 other
schools from Manatee to Lee
counties in the District 6
International Thespian So-
ciety's competition.
But in light of "Seussical's"
distinction, if the LBHS The-
ater and Music wins with a
medley of its spring produc-
tion, "Les Miserables," the
group will step down and
allow another school to take
its place, Kelly said.
As far as "Seussical" goes,
Kelly said she was so excited
she did not think about her
own role in the accomplish-
ment.
She told her cast, "Go gloat.
Go make phone calls."

and vendors seemed happy.
It is always amazing to see
the clever way artists create
something for everyone. One
of the most uniquebooths this
year was "Funky Feet," which
featured leather shoes and
sandles painted in all kinds of
funky colors and designs.
President of the Venice
Nokomis Rotary Club, John
Ryan, certainly had to be
proud of the work comminee
members did to organize this
spectacular event.
Special thanks to conummit-
tee chair Hank MNlikaelian and
members Grady Hough, Bar-
bara Freeman, John Moody,
Brenda Matthews, Jim Hill,
Jim Beach, Jack Ogle, Roger
Burton, Terry Littrell, Neal Van
DeRee, Tommy Taylor and
Jack Starks.
Venice High School Interact
Club and Marine Corps ROTC,
RV World, Lake Venice Golf
Club, Farley Funeral Home,
Waste Management and the
Rotary Ann's of the Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club also de-
serve a special pat on the back.
It was fun to purchase, a
painting from Nedobeck
Graphics and learn the clever
artist is from Milwaukee,
speaks Polish and his grand-
mother's name was Lewan-
dowski.
The standing-room-only
crowd enjoyed the Laurel No-
komis School Band as they
performed on the grandstand.

The line for the Venice Art
Center's downtown "Pignic"
was long but moved quickly
and everyorie agreed the pull-
ed pork, coleslaw and beans
were delicious. Gold Rush
Barbecue catered the event
and the wonderful volunteers
from the Venice Art Center
served the food. Centennial
Park was the perfect setting
and a lot of people stayed
and enjoyed dinner after the
jazz concert in the park.
The Thursday Stroll
brought the usual large crowd
downtown and Louise Webb,
owner of The Knitting Place. at
225 W. Miami Ave., was thrilled
at the large number of people
who visited her new shop. Be
sure to stop in and see her
selection of beautiful yams.

The special person of this
week is Heather McCullough.
This nice lady is always on
hand to volunteer at whatever
event the Venice Art Center is
sponsoring. She is cheerful
and friendly and you would
never guess she works full-
time and takes care of her
family in addition to her vol-
unteer work. In addition to
all this, Heather is a talented
artist whose work is on display
at the Venice Art Center.
Whether Heather is an-
nouncing winners at an art
center reception or dishing
out food at a "Pignic," Heather
is a joy to know. She is one
of the all-around talented
women who helps make
Venice special.
