Lopez: Expect new

Director of Venice
Housing Authority
keeps his sights set
high, despite lack of
available land.
BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Shovels will be moving dirt
in 2006 for new affordable
and low-income housing in
Venice.
Doubts as to where that
will be are simply speed
bumps in the road, according
to Venice Housing Authority3
Executive Director Peter
Lopez.
One the job for a year in
Venice, Lopez has been eye-
ing 59 acres of counry-owned
land along Laurel Road. He
admits that location would be
a best-case-scenario, and has
two other options under con-
sideration.
Lopez may need those
other options. A memo to
Venice City Council asking for
their support of relocation
plans has some county plan-
ners questioning if that's an
S9ption, . . .
.Yh "When I build, whatever
w\ build, wherever we build
- and I will build it it will
be (in 2006). ... Doing noth-
ing is not an option," Lopez
said in an interview Friday.

VHA Executive Director Peter Lopez wants to break ground on
new public housing in Venice by 2006 in order to replace the
35-year-old complex, pictured above, on North Grove Street.


The memo to City
Manager Marty Black out-
lines a bold plan to build 200
low-income/affordable town-
houses, 50 units for the elder-
ly, 50 for assisted living and 80
single-family homes.
Three options
On Friday, Lopez clarified
the Jan. 18 memo only deals
with VHA\ s No. 1 option -

Road and Interstate 75, which
borders city limits. Details of
the land's availability have
changed since then, so
options No. 2 and 3 must be
considered.


But he hasn't closed the
door on trying to obtain the
county land, even if Sarasota
County still hasn't decided on
the property's future once
road extension work on
Pinebrook Road is finished.
"Whenever the decision-
makers make a decision, I
want to make sure they're
aware we have a plan," Lopez
said.
The latest news out of the
county is a decision may not
be known for at least another
year, according to Larry
Arnold, manager of commu-

Cynthia Melendez-Short, a
seventh-grader at Venice
Middle School, was cool as a
cucumber Wednesday morn-
ing as she spoke to an audi-
ence of 250 Junior Achieve-
ment supporters at the
Sarasota Hyatt.
She introduced herself to
the audience by telling of her
love of softball. Nlelendez-
Short is the pitcher for, girls
fastpitch softball. This year
the Venice Vipers raised
enough money to attend the
world series and came in sec-
ond.
Mention of the accom-
plishment is just the kind of
success story that Imunior
Achievement is all about.
But Melendez-Short wasn't
there to brag about softball.
She had a message for poten-
tial donors in the audience: A
Junior Achievement class,
and the volunteer who taught
it, made a difference in her
life.

Repairing the

county's broken

growth process

Local officials gave'a legislative committee
suggestions on how to fix the tangled and
time-consuming way the state reviews major
growAth management changes.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Everyone agreed that
Florida's growth manage-
ment system was broken.
Where they differed was the
amount of mending it would
take to repair the mess.
Five members of the
Florida Legislature's growth
management committee,
along with Rep. Mike Grant,
R-Port Charlotte, who sat
with the committee to listen
and learn, met at Florida
Gulf Coast University Friday
to take pub-
lic comment
on a pro-
posed bill
that would
revamp the
state's 20-
year-old

manage-
ment law. MERCIER

North Port may have contaminated land

Diocese'ofVehice property being checked after


North Port uses site as a d

BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

We are willing to forgive,
but the city better work with
us.
That sums up what Ray-
mond Haddad, director of the
building commission for the
Diocese of Venice, said as he
visited the site where the city
of North Port dumped waste
on the church's property.
"I'm very disappointed in
what I am seeing," Haddad
said.
Haddad estimated the city
encroached about 550 feet
onto the church's property. It
also appeared to Haddad the
city elevated the land by more
than 5 feet from original
ground level.


lump.

"Though there may (still
be) slash pines, it is fairly clear
that clearing was done here to
accommodate the dumping,"
said Haddad, adding the
church probably would not
require the city to pay for any
replanting of trees.
Haddad said he will have
exploratory excavation con-
ducted to make sure there are
no contaminants or fuel oil
on the site. Soil testing will be
done and the church will
abide by the Department of
Environmental Protection's
rules and regulations, Had-
dad said.
"We would also expect the
city of North Port to pay for
the testing," Haddad said.
As he walked along the
west side of the property,

Raymond Haddad said he is very disappointed after walking the area of the property owned by the Diocese of Venice that the
city of North Port used as a dump and landfill. Here he is surveying the damage done to the property.


Raymond Haddad, director of the building commission for the
Diocese of Venice, checks out a spot with runoff he found on
the church's property. After smelling it, Haddad'said, "This is
some kind of petroleum product."

wanted to know who was on

We're not trying to run you

According to St. Louis, the

WHAT IS GINGIVITIS?
Gingivitis is the most common gum disease and is characterized by
inflamed gum tissue. Sometimes the inflammation appears as a thin
red or bluish-red line marginal gingivitis around the teeth.
The most common cause of gingivitis is poor oral hygiene. If teeth are
not brushed, gingivitis develops quickly as plaque deposits, which are
loaded with bacteria, form around and beneath the gum.
Early gingivitis can be cured by self-treatment by thorough daily
brushing and flossing to remove irritating food debris and soft plaque
deposits. A soft nylon brush at a 45-degree angle and jiggled in a
gentle massaging motion directly on the gum is effective. Special
rubber tip massagers are also available. If gums are soft and puffy, the
rubber tip attached to the brush should be inserted between the teeth
to massage the gum tissue. Stimulants are also effective.
Once plaque and tartar are firmly established on the teeth and beneath
the gum. professional cleaning then becomes necessary.

Play a part in designing your city's future


BY KATHIE EBAUGH
GUEST WRITER


We should enhance the
walkability of the community
with sidewalks to provide
links among neighborhoods,
shopping centers and parks.
Venice needs to attract
younger residents.
This community should
expand affordable housing
opportunities by diversifying
neighborhoods.
Venice High School should
be renovated to provide a per-
formance theater to share
with the community.
What do these statements
have in common?
They are among the ideas
shared by members of the
community at the Public
Services Envision Venice city-
wide prioritization forum
held Tuesday night.
Envision Venice is a com-
munity-oriented planning
process to shape the future of
Venice through the 2006
update of its comprehensive
plan. The process is unique
because it begins with input
from the public instead of
asking the public, to respond


to a staff-driven, proposed
draft.
Envision Venice looks to
build community common
values and a shared vision be-
cause it is:
Inclusive participants
do not have to live or own a
business in the city; they just
need to care about its future
- and all ages are included.
Approachable small
table discussions enable-peo-
ple to feel comfortable shar-
ing ideas because they do not
have to speak to the whole
group.
Interactive it promotes
discussion among communi-
ty members, enabling them
to learn from one another
and develop community val-
ues and a shared vision.
Accessible the forums
are held at both day and
evening events in a variety of
locations.
Comprehensive each
month the discussions center
around different community
interests, such as public ser-
vices; the environment and
open space; transportation
and infrastructure; and future
land use and development.

Consensus building -
after each group of three local
issues meetings is held, a city-
wide forum is held to help
establish which are individual
concerns and which are com-
munity priorities.
At the recent Public
Services Prioritization forum,
participants found that these
'are the most important issues
for the city's future:
Community identity -
maintaining Venice's small,
hometown feeling and strong
connection to historic roots,
architectural character and
cultural arts; enhancing the
community's walkability,
beaches, natural areas and
scale of buildings; eliminating
traffic congestion; improving


Council to consider south island theme district


City staff is recommending the creation of a

city council meeting.
Responding to citizen sug-
gestions, last year council
directed staff to come up with
recommendations for archi-
tectural standards along the
portion of U.S. 41 Business
from Milan Avenue to the
Circus Bridge. Some residents
advocated bringing the area
within one of the city's archi-
tectural theme districts, but
the study proposes the cre-


ation of a new overlay district
along the lines of the Venetian
Gateway overlay that controls
the East Venice corridor.
The district would be cre-
ated to preserve and promote
John Nolen's original plan for
the city; the city's Northern
Italian Renaissance architec-
ture; and mixed-use, pedes-
trian friendly designs. Diver-
sity of form, style and color
would be encouraged.
Because the area in ques-
tion is. neither historic nor
adjacent to either of the
theme districts on the island,

More Myakka land protected by Sarasota County


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
If it weren't a public meet-
ing, the champagne would be
flowing.
Nevertheless, members of
Sarasota County's Environ-
mentally Sensitive Lands
Oversight Committee will
certainly be celebrating as
other county officials are al-
ready.
Officials with the county's
environmentally sensitive
lands program announced
the closing of the purchase of
the 420-acre Churchill Ranch
on Dec. 30.
"Another fabulous suc-
cess," commissioner Shan-


non Staub said. "Thanks to all
who keep making this the
best program yet and one
that will be for so many future
generations."
The county paid $7.5 mil-
lion for the property.
The Church-
ill Ranch
property lies
east of the
River Road
and Interstate
75 inter-
change. The
property is
bounded by
S Staub the Carlton
Reserve on
the north, land owned by the
Southwest Florida Water


Management District on the
east (the Schewe property),
Interstate 75 to the south,
and the Myakka River to the
west.
Deer Prairie Creek is a
tributary on the east side of
Myakka River and the
property lying along the
creek is slated as one of the
county's priority protection
sites.
The county has targeted
the property for. protection
because of the pristine pine
flatwoods, hammock, depres-
sion marshes, dry prairie and
scrub habitats present on the
land.
The nature of the property
makes it ideal'habitat for


Florida scrub jays, gopher
tortoises, eastern indigo
snakes, sandhill cranes, wood
storks and other wading
birds.
Of equal importance to
the county in acquiring the
property, besides the natural
benefits is the link between
the remainder of the Deer
Prairie property to the south
and the Carlton Reserve to
the north.
"It will protect critical
Myakka River and upland
habitats and provide linkages
for wildlife corridors and
trails," said Brooke Elias, a
county project scientist asso-
ciated with the ESLOC pro-
gram.


Thousands of acres
With the Churchill Ranch
acquisition, the county and
the water management dis-
trict have protected more
than 6,790 acres within the
Deer Prairie site, Elias said.
According to Elias, the
water management district
has indicated it will provide
half of the purchase price for
the property.
Funded by an additional
property tax of 0.25 mills
approved by county voters
in March 1999, the program
has protected more than
15,000 acres of property
such as the Manasota Scrub
Preserve along State Road
776 in North Englewood and


the Lemon Bay Preserve in
South Venice.
Thanks to the program,
vast tracts of land along the
Myakka River are now protect-
ed.
That 15,000 acres, accord-
ing to county staff represents
35 percent of the originally
designated 36,000 acres wor-
thy of protection in 18 protec-
tion priority sites.
Five years later, those 18
sites have expanded to 24
sites for a total of 42,660
acres.

District seeks grant for science labs


The money would be used to bolster science edu-
cation, which is now a part of the FCAT testing
regimen.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
School District is trying for a
repeat performance of its
success at winning a compet-
itive grant from the William G.
Selby and Marie Selby Foun-
dation this time to boost
science labs in middle
schools.
The district won a similar
grant for elementary school'
science labs from the Selby
Foundation back in 2002.
The grant amount being
sought is identical to the pre-
vious grant $150,000 paid
*out over each of the, next
three years.


The school board approv-
ed the application Feb. 1.
Selby Foundation and district
officials plan to meet Feb. 25
to refine the proposal.
The fotmundadon will make
its decision in late April and
notify thdie board by May 15.
According to the grant
application, funds will pur-
chase laboratory equipment,'
supplies, materials, and ftr-
niture applicable to the six-th-
to-eighth-grade science cur-
ricula.
The district is counting on
the enhanced science labs to
help kids score higher on
standardized tests, including
the Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test that in-


cludes a science component,
which began in 2003.
Kathy Kleinlein, chair of
the Sarasota County School
Board, has high hopes for the
proposal.
"I think the Selby Foun-
dation is committed to help-
ing the district become profi-
cient in the sciences. I'm very
confident in the grant pro-
posal and our chances of se-
curing the grant," Kleinlein
said.
Elementary
The earlier elementary sci-
ence labs grant, paid out in
2002, 2003 and 2004 in equal
installments of $150,000, ap-
pears to have been a great
success. ,
"The reaction from teach-
ers and principals has ranged
from excited to energized be-
cause they now have hands-
on areas for learning science,"


said Debra M. Jacobs with the
Selby Foundation.
"Selby Foundation was
also interested in ensuring
that every elementary school
has the equivalent level- of
learning space and equip-
ment, so that every child has
the same learning opportuni-
ty and as teachers change
schools, they have the same
equipment," Jacobs said.
The 2002 grant allowed the
leveraging of a secondary,
grant from the Dart Foun-
dation providing 11 wireless
laptop computers to every
elementary school in the dis-
trict for use in the science
program for three years.
Nearly $22 million has
been received by the district
through competitive and en-
titlement grants, according to
the district.

VHA from page 1 A

Sarasota County. Arnold said
he had only given the Lopez
proposal a "casual" look.
Lopez believes that is too
long to wait, so VHA is now
focusing on finding land else-
where as the next option and
rebuilding at the existing site
on North Grove Street as the
third, fall-back option.
VHA cannot negotiate for
land outside of city limits
without prior city council
approval, which was why
Lopez first wrote the memo.
Venice lacks affordable and
vacant land that could handle
an expansion of this magni-
tude, so Lopez is looking else-
where.
Lopez would not name
specific locations, but there
are several possible sites just
outside city limits and some
potential spots within the city.
Problems with these are
increased cost for acquisition
and less acreage, meaning the
plan must be scaled back and
built in stages.
If all else fails, the current
35-year-old public housing
complex on North Grove
Street will be torn down in
stages and replaced.
"By December 2005, we
will have spent have a half
million dollars on Grove
Terrace (repairs)," Lopez said.
"It would not be in the best
interest of public funds to do
that again."
Grove Terrace takes up
about 5.7 acres, making out
the number of potential units
at about 110. City codes do
not allow more than 18 living
units per acre, but Grove

VHA Executive Director Peter Lopez only has about 5.7 acres at
the current Grove Street site, meaning at best, zoning codes
would allow about 110 units. Lopez wants to find a larger
piece of land in order to expand low-income housing beyond
the current 50 units.


Terrace only has 50 units -
all full with a waiting list -
right now.
Time for action
'VHA is not biting off more
than it can chew by propos-
ing what could be a $45 mil-
lion affordable housing pro-
ject, Lopez said. The funding
is out there in various federal,
state, county and private
sources.
With the right amount of
planning, Lopez a certified
public accountant said
grants and loans can be
obtained. The key is not to
count on .funding from just
one source, instead going
with numerous revenue
streams.
And the project he has in
mind would mix low-income
residents with, affordable-


housing residents so that
there is no difference. For
every one subsidized resident
there would be two paying
normal rent, tenants like first-
year school teachers and
police officers.
This would provide finan-
cial stability and help elimi-
nated the stigma of what
affordable housing repre-
sents.
Lopez wants a decision to
be made in 2005, and start
taking action to build in 2006.
"We have to make these
strategic decisions," Lopez
said. "You have to build
something other than boxes.
You have to build something
that shows community
pride."

Hay has been volunteering
with JA off and on for 10 years.
An employee at SmithBarney
Citigroup, Hay believes mid-
dle school is where he can
make the most impact. By the
time kids are in high school, a
certain mind set is already in
place about succeeding or
dropping out, Hay said.
"This mind set is being
developed in the middle
school years. This is where
you really need to reach kids."
He applauded Melendez-
Short's first-ever public
speaking engagement for its
content and delivery.
"She is an exceptional
young lady. She was obvious-
ly paying attention in class
because the lessons she
learned were right on target,"
Hay said.
"Cynthia is the perfect
example of how the business
community can have a posi-
tive impact on students.

somehow that is more believ-
able. When we walk into the
classroom, we're not taking
theory. We tell them, 'This is
the way things actually work.
This is what will be expected
from you.'"
The lesson of staying in
school is not lost on the
young Melendez-Short, who
already envisions being a
doctor, super model or CEO
of a world conglomerate.
'After my mother finished
school we felt like Cinderellas
in the supermarket," Melen-
dez-Short recalled. "We
bought clothes, a house, and
now she owns a good car. Like
my mom, I know that I will


also go to college."

Public debate planned on future look of beach park


Comment sought on what the decommissioned
wastewater plant will eventually look like.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


There may be no love lost
on Valentine's Day when the
future of Venice island's new-
est city park is up for public
debate.
Concept plans for park to
replace the decommissioned
island wastewater plant will


be on display at the parks and
recreation board meeting at 3
p.m. Feb. 14. Public Works
Director Larry Heath, repre-
sentatives of Wade-Trim Inc.,
and the city's engineering
department will present the
plans for the park, currently
called Tramonto Vista Park.
Initial reaction in Novem-
ber from some residents like


Maxine Barritt were cool. She
expected this to be a passive
park along Venice's beach,
and objects to 100 paved
parking spots and a covered
pavilion that could host small
concerts.
"This is a beach park, not
Sarasota bayfront," Barritt said
at the Nov. 23 council meeting,
which drew a round .of ap-
plause from the audience.
The park will be located
where the island wastewater


treatment plant used t6 be,
along South Harbor Drive
and south of the Venice Mu-
nicipal Fishing Pier.
The name, thought up by
City Manager Marty Black,
also was criticized. Tramonto
means twilight in Italian.
The initial idea in No-
vember was for 100 parking
spots, two bathroom facili-
ties, gazebo stage for small
concerts, three 60-foot in
diameter picnic shelters re-


placing each of the three stor-
age tanks, fountains in the
reclaimed water pond and an
elevated sand dune board-
walk from the park to Venice
Fishing Pier.
City Manager Marty Black
reminded citizens last No-
vember that all of these con-
cept plans are subject to
change, based on resident
suggestions.
"None of these design ele-
ments have been finalized,"


Black said Nov. 23. "This is
just the beginning."
Following the Feb. 14 pre-
sentation, there will be an
opportunity for members of
the audience to have five
minutes each for comments.
The same presentation will
be made at the Venice Plan-
ning Commission at 1:30 p.m.
Feb. 15 in council chambers
where there will be another
opportunity for audience
participation.

GROWTH from page IA
Store Road, where the county
has invested time in planning
as the city of Cape Coral
wants to annex the land for an
industrial park.
"The cities are undermin-
ing our efforts at good plan-
ning," Judah said.
Going regional
The comments of Mercier
and Judah led committee
member Rep. Alan Hayes, R-
Umatilla, to suggest they con-
sider Duval County's example
with Jacksonville in making
the county a countywide
municipality.
That suggestion was
broached during the annexa-
tion battle between Sarasota
and North Port and was not
received well by city officials.
The plan under considera-
tion first suggested by the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs last fall -
would change the process for
growth control by changing to
a more regional approach -
giving the regional planning
councils more oversight with
a limited role by the DCA.
Representing the Florida
Association of Counties,
Sarasota County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
said that group wasn't
opposed to the idea but was
more concerned with how
the legislature planned to
make it happen, noting that
two years ago a movement
was afoot to dismantle the
regional planning councils.
"We face our neighbors
and business leaders each
day and we have to answer to
them," Thaxton said. "Growth
management is very close to
the life of a county commis-
sioner."
Cuts needed
Mike Konefal, Charlotte
County's Community
Development Director, also,
endorsed the idea but criti-
cized the idea of duplicating
processes as the DCA would
still retain some oversight
authority. .
"Growth management is
the most bureaucratic
process I've ever seen,"
Konefal said. "We need to cut
it dramatically. We've made it
so large and complicated, it
looks like it's another tax
code."
Konefal also suggested the
creation of local Web sites
modeled on myflorida.com
whera citizens could learn
about and get questions
answered on growth manage-
ment issues and the addition
of a course in high schools to
explain growth management.
While the criticisms of the
proposed legislation were
varied, there was one change
the speakers agreed they did-
n't want to see a change to
the rules regarding develop-
ments of regional impact that
would exempt the phosphate
industry from review of its
mining plans.
Konefal, like. Judah, said
the phosphate issue was

Vikings lose another heartbreaker


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Are the Venice Vikings snake-
bitten? Or will too many pen-
alties and special teams break-
downs do you in every time?
Whatever, the Vikings re-
main winless in the 2005
Southern States Football
League season following Sat-
urday night's 23-20 loss to the
Cape Coral Fear at Powell-
Davis Stadium.
Venice fell to 0-3 while the
Fear improved to 1-2.
It was the second tough
home loss of the season for the
Vikes, who fellin overtime to the
Bradenton Gladiators Jan. 22.
As far as who owned who
in the trenches Saturday
night, Venice was clearly a
winner, pushing the Fear all
over the field. Standout back
Chauncey Jones had a big
night running the ball, scor-
ing two Viking touchdowns
and finishing with 144 yards
on 21 carries.
But 168 yards in penalties
coupled with kickoff and punt
returns for touchdowns proved
too much to overcome.
As the wild and wacky SSFL
would have it, the game came
down to the final seconds.
Venice had tied the game
at 20-20 with 53 seconds on a
one-yard run by Jones. But


the all important extra point
- the one that would win it
for victory starved Venice -
was no good.
For some reason, Venice
tried an onsides kick, setting
up Cape with excellent field
position at the Viking 42.
Facing a fourth and four at
the 36, substitute quarterback
Ray Persons scrambled for a
first down at the 30. The
biggest penalty of them all
came on the same play when
Jones hit Persons out of
bounds. The personal foul
put the ball at the 15. Persons
hit Terrance Braxton for 13
yards to the 2, setting up a
game-winning, 20-yard field
goal by Steve Burgess with
just 4.5 seconds left.
The Fear, who were no
angels themselves with 150
yards in penalties, went up
13-0 in the first quarter, using
a kickoff return and punt
return to do the damage.
Greg Goff took the opening
kickoff 78 yards, to paydirt. Late
in the first quarter, Mickey
Bradley took a punt and ram-
bled 85 yards for another TD.
The Venice defense led by
Aaron Meininghaus, Gerald
Perry, Carter Bryant,' Rick
Shaw, Izzy Laguerre, Matt
Gullick and Frank Gionfriddo
held the Cape Coral offense in
check for most of the game.

Lady Indians finish regular season with record of 19-6


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

On a whole, the Venice
High girls basketball team
played competitive hoops
against the No. 2-ranked
team in Class 5A Barron
Collier.
But the hot-shooting Lady
Cougars were able to stay one
step ahead of the Lady In-
dians in Saturday's, main
attraction in the Naples
Dodge Shootout.
Outscoring Venice in every
quarter, fleet-footed Collier
posted a 70-48 victory to im-
prove its record to 23-1.
Venice, which fell to 19-6,
will next play at 7:30 p.m.
Thursday in the semifinals of
the Class 5A District 11
Tournament at Lakewood
Ranch High. The Lady In-
dians will play the winner of
Tuesday's Ranch vs. Port
Charlotte game.


Venice 'coach Joe DiGia-
como believes playing tough
competition down the regular
season stretch will make his
team better in the long run.
"These last three games
were good for us," DiGiacomo
said of contests against Pen-
dleton, Gulf Coast and Barron
Collier. "Now you can throw
the records out. It's the sec-
ond season."
Venice finishes the regular

They made six three pointers.
Two 6f them late in the sec-
ond quarter by Kasey Will
quieted a Venice run and
allowed Collier to take a 40-27
lead into the locker room.
Down 12 mid-way through
the third quarter, Venice had
apparently cut it to nine on a
three-point bomb by Kailey


Dettmann, but she was called
for traveling on the play.
Collier was able to convert on
the other end to build a safe
14-point lead.
Collier was able to stretch
its lead in the final minutes
when DiGiacomo went to his.
bench.
Caraby Gatz led Collier
with 20 points. She had three
treys.
Courtney Jacob had 16 and
Will finished with 15. Post
player Nicole Blake had 12
points.
"They didn't hurt us inside,
they hurt us with their out-
side shooting," DiGiacomo
said. "We didn't play bad.
Their threes killed us."
Dettmann paced the Ven-
ice offense with 14 points in-
cluding four threes. Hough
had 11 points and 12 re-
bounds. Natalie Gaudreau
had 12 points.
If Venice wins its district


semifinal, it will advance to

GOLF RESULTS


Good morning all. Over
-the last two weeks we have
talked about some of the local
golf tournaments. However,
they are not the only games in
town.
There are other organiza-
tions that hold tournaments
-in the area. There are men's,
women's and senior's, and
yes, even junior tournaments
: held year-round.
This is where MSCgolf.org
shines. A local Web site set up
by Larry Flynn and friends, it
,Js a complete list of local
Action.
I recently received an e-
:.mail from Nancy Patka in-
:.futring about local women's
.,golf. Nancy, just fire up your
:computer and you will find
'i.he answers you seek at
:IlSCgolf.org. There are listing
:-ind downloadable entry
'Torms (where available) for
most, if not all, local events.
Also included are the events
t!:un by the Florida State Golf
Association, from the State
Amateur in une to the USGA
amateur qualifying in July
(not for die timid).
On behalf of all local play-
ers, I wouldlike to thank Larry
Flynn and his cohorts for cre-
ating this invaluable resource
for golf info.
You know when I agreed to
start writing this column I
had no idea how good the
perks would be. This Tuesday,
Feb. 8 1 will be attending (and
playing) in the Outback
Steakhouse Pro Am Media
pDay. This is a chance to play
golf at the TPC of Tampa Bay
in Lutz and also get some one

ball until Charlotte fouled
with 38 seconds left. Bonilla
made two free throws to
r'make it 41-38. Steve Stasko
Grabbed a rebound and
scored an uncontested layup
with two seconds to seal the
!win.
"We were able to finish,"
--McLaughlin said. "This was a
-eam effort."
- Venice had no players hit
-1double figures but had Stasko
and Stritz score nine apiece.
Vasilevskiy had eight points,
"'Bonilla six and Bill Mehserle
44tallied five.
; "Give Chharlotte credit,"
McLaughlin, said. "They had
us pegged. Our guys were flat-
footed in the beginning. We
didn't cut the seams and got.
Sat it hard. We started to move
,-better at the end of the sec-
"ond quarter."
Venice has three home
games this coming week to
end the regular season.

Two charged with




animal cruelty


Two men, possibly three, apparently were not
content with just killing a squirrel. They had to
torture it, cut off its head and put the head in a


neighbor's hammock.-

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

The grisly discovery of a
decapitated squirrel on a
backyard hammock led to a
Lemon Bay High School stu-
dent from Venice and another
man.
Cory M. Schaefer, 18, 3000
block Siesta Drive, Venice,
and Kyle C.
Runyon, 18,
1300 block
Buckett Cir-
cle, Port Char-
lotte, were ar-
rested and -
charged with
cruelty to ani-
mals resulting "
in cruel death. Schaefer
The inci-
dent happened about 4 p.m.,
Feb. 1.
An Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Animal Services officer
got a call from a resident on
Sunset Beach Drive.
He found a decapitated
squirrel lying on the woman's
back-yard hammock. The
squirrel had one leg missing.
The other leg was tied with a
blue string and a stick. That
leg lay in the grass next to the
hammock. The squirrel's


head lay on the hammock.
The resident told authori-
ties the neighbors who live
behind her might know
something about the incident
because she has seen them
shooting BB guns in their
backyard.

Make up your mind
A deputy and the animal
services officer went to
Schaefer's house. Schaefer
and Runyon were standing
outside.
The officer asked Schaefer
if he knew anything about the
dead squirrel in the neigh-
bor's backyard.
"Umm, no, well, yes,"
Schaefer said.
Schaefer said he, Runyon
and another man cut the
squirrel's head off with a
knife. Schaefer also said he
does own a BB gun and there
were probably BBs inside the
squirrel. He said he was not
the one who cut off the head.
However, Schaefer said he
knew it was going to happen
and did nothing to stop it.
Police are still looking for
the third subject.
Schaefer also said he was
there when the squirrel was
tied up with a string and

Scientists worried red tide will threaten manatees


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier'com
Though the red tide outbreak is well offshore in the Venice area, onshore breezes have brought
the familiar respiratory symptoms to beachgoers, who have also seen some dead fish.


STAFF, WIRE REPORTS


An unseasonable outbreak
of red tide has scientists wor-
ried that migrating manatees
may swim into the potentially
deadly algae.
The red tide, which formed
in the Gulf of Mexico about 30
miles off Tampa Bay in early
January, has moved nearer
shore and south. It now
stretches from north of Anna
Maria Isle south to Venice.


Red tide normally occurs
from August through Sep-
tember. A winter bloom spells
peril for manatees, which
start moving out of warm
water in rivers and estuaries
in late February and early
March, said Elsa Haubold,
administrator for marine
mammal research at the Fish
and Wildlife Research Insti-
tute.
Haubold said there is a
danger of a repeat of 2002 and


2003, when red tide killed 34
and 96 manatees, respective-
ly.
A bloom forming in winter
on the southwest coast likely
will remain along the mana-
tee migration routes as they
move north from the Ca-
loosahatchee River. The ani-
mals congregate there during
the winter to be near the
warm waters around the
Florida Power & Light power
plant near Fort Myers.


Haubold said the public
should look out for manatees
that seem to be in distress.
With the exception of one sea
cow, scientists have been able
to save every manatee affect-
ed by red tide that has been
reported to the institute.
Hurricanes at fault?
Although they have no
data to support it, scientists
are speculating that nutrients
flushed into coastal waters by
last year's four hurricanes
could be responsible for the
January red tide, said Cynthia
Heil of the Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute.
Red tide is formed when
Karenia brevis, a microscopic
algae, reproduces at an explo-
sive rate, forming a bloom.
Nutrients such as phosphorus
and nitrogen are known to
fuel that explosion.
Minor fish kills have been
reported from the tide, but
there have been no incidents
of massive numbers of dead
fish being washed up on Gulf
beaches, Heil said. A fisher-
man alerted the institute
about the red tide when his
bait started dying.
According to Mote Marine
Laboratory of Sarasota, the
algae bloom was first spotted
Dec. 20 and expanded south to
the Englewood area on Jan. 28.
Respiratory irritation and


dead fish have been reported
along area shores. Mote
found evidence of red tide in
water samples from one to 20
miles into the Gulf.
Weather forecasts call for
offshore winds throughout
the weekend. Such winds
would lessen the impact or


irritation for area beachgoers,
a Mote report states.
Red tide is known to cause
breathing problems in people
when the algae's toxic spores
become airborne. The effects
can be serious for people with
breathing problems such as
asthma.

Keep saying no to gulf oil and gas drilling


I It will be interesting to see, now that nei-
ther Gov. Jeb Bush or his brother is run-
ning for re-election, how much longer we
can protect our beaches from the dangers of
drilling for gas and oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
Gov. Bush and many other state leaders,
both Democrat and Republican, have fought
for years to preserve our coast from any harm
that could be caused by drilling. Folks who
live along the beaches in Texas, Louisiana or
Alabama know the type of potential harm we'
refer to.
According to the National Wildlife Feder-
ation, Sen. Pete Domenici, R-New Mexico,
recently wrote Interior Secretary Gale Norton


to push drilling for gas off Florida's coast. He
pointed out that drilling would reduce the
price of natural gas in the United States and
provide jobs.
The latest overture for drilling is certainly not
the first time the alarm has rung. In 2001, the
Bush administration proposed drilling, but the
governor fought it. Credit Jeb's obvious influ-
ence or the fact Florida was battleground state
in the 2004 elections whatever the reason,
lease holders agreed to take $115 million from
the government not to drill in the gulf.
Nothinglasts forever, and that is the case
this time.
Domenici is one of several members of Con-


gress who want to drill anywhere they think
there is gas or oil. The idea to drill in the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge for oil has also resur-
faced and the fact that President George W
Bush does not have to worry about re-election
could weaken the opposition to that proposal.
America, of course, needs other sources of
fuel. We consume about 25 percent of the
world's energy supplybut onlyhold 3 percent of
the energy reserves. At that rate we only have
two choices--begin strong conservation pro-
gram or be willing to pay whatever the world
wants to charge us for oil. There is not enough'
fuel in Alaska or the gulf to make a difference
over a substantial period of time considering


the rate SUV-loving Americans use fuel.
Florida must rely on its Congressional dele-
gation especially Republican Sen. Mel Mar-
tinez, and Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson if our
beaches are to be spared the dangers of drilling.
The wildlife federation is urging Floridians to
write or call Martinez to urge him to vote
against drilling in Alaska because that decision
might open the door to drilling in the gulf.
We strongly object to the government
allowing drilling in the gulf. Florida's tourism,
not to mention our health, depends on clean.
beaches everyone can epjoy. Once drilling
begins, there is no way to control it.
Let's not ever let it start.


Nineteen



months later,


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

The Venice community got
very lucky about 19 months
ago when' Bon Secours
Venice Hospital won a certifi-
cate of need for an open-
heart surgery unit inVenice. It
fought off challenges from
just about every hospital in
the area. The fact was there
was a need.
The administration and
board had worked on many
ways to staff this facility. One
was-a-proposal from Sarasota
Memorial. where there is an
established program, to use
its surgeons. The second was.
to go outside and find a
stand-alone group whose
dedication would be totally to
serving the Venice communi-
ty, not splitting time between
the facilities
Diligence paid off, as a
group with an incredible
track record and a refreshing
different way to handle open-
heart surgery agreed to come.
The Ocala Heart
Institute's formula may not
sound that special, but it is: It
trains medical crews that can
interchangeably work with
any surgeon.
What is special about that?
All procedures 'are standard-
ized; all surgeons use exacdy
the same equipment and
processes. What that does is
not confuse operating-room
staff as to which surgeon is
performing, what the process
is, what equipment is to be
used. By always doing it the
same way, they save time, and
they know the less' time a
patient is in surgery, thebet-
ter the chance of success and
a shorter;recovery.
The anesthesiologist stays
with the patient much longer,
as they know the longer a per-
son is sedated, the longer the
recovery.
These differences have
brought better results. They
are very close to their pa-
tients, to the extent that they
pray and consult with them
closely. Faith is important to
anyone working for OHI.
And they take on all pa-
tients. They have taken some
extremely difficult and risky
cases. Not everyone of those
was a success, but the num-
bers show they are right at the
top by any measure.
There is. no better care a
person can get, in my opin-
ion.
Yet it has not been without
its problems. People are still
being referred to Sarasota by
some Venice cardiologists
'even though the patients
could be cared for as well if


not better (I think better) right
here. That could well be be-
cause of the way the doctors
were treated by Bon Secours.
The person who loses is
the patient, who cannot take
advantage of a top-notch
facility right in the area, the
whole reason for the CON.
I spoke to one person who
was going to use Sarasota; he
felt comfortable with a facility
with a long track record.
Someone suggested he talk to
the Ocala group. He did, and
they did his seven-graft by-
pass.
He was very excited he
made that choice. That is true
with everyone I have spoken
to who has used our doctors.
So, 339 procedures later -
269 of those open heart (they
handle aneurysms and other
chest-related procedures) -
they have done very well.
About 25 percent of the cases
have been on people over the
age of 80, with four proce-
dures on people older than
90. They have exceeded their
estimated number of proce-
dures and their outcomes
rank very high.
I feel we have been very
lucky. Now we can hope that
the Health Management As-
sociates team can bring bet-
ter cooperation of all local
surgeons and continue to
build this into something
really special.
If you need heart work, ask
for Venice to be considered. I
suggest 'that you talk to Dr.
Fong or others with the
group, who will likely make
you feel very comfortable
about their abilities.

By's Crack: It wasn't too
many years ago that the
only time that you asked
"Is it a boy or girl?" was at
the hospital.
(I am visiting Cham-
paign, ll., Wednesday to
celebrate my dad Byron's
95th birthday. I'll be going'
to the Kiwanis meeting,
where he has been a
member for 60 years. And

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


If you represent me, ask me what I think


Editor:
At election time candidates for Venice City Council shower
us with attention.. Sometimes we get phone calls. But surely
they send brochures, often featuring the a photo of the candi-
date's family.
It's great to feel that the candidate is a good family person,
who probably makes a major effort to know the family's feel-
ings on issues that effect them.
Yet when a 400-foot pier was approved for construction near
the Hatchett Creek Bridge, not a single council member had
bothered to ask voters in the area how they felt about the long
pier. The approval was a county, not city decision, but council
members should have expressed an opinion, and that opinion
should have been the opinion of their voters.
Yes, council members, once you've been elected, loyalty
shouldn't be limited to those behind your front door.
I hope future candidates will continue to include a family
photo in their election brochures. But if the brochure included
a photo of the candidate with some homeowner association
officers, that candidate would get my vote. It would show the
candidate has made an effort to understand his role in serving
the public under representative government, and was not just
seeking a post to serve "the city."
Candidate phone calls before election are annoying. Phone
calls to discuss issues after election would be more welcome.

VPC pastor a'
pillar of integrity
Editor:
Rev. Chris Romig is my
pastor at Venice Presbyterian
Church. Pastor Chris has a
sensitivity and depth of
insight that is remarkable in
one so young. I would seek
his counsel without reserva-
tion, should the need arise.
In the year that Rev. Romig
has been in Venice, he has
demonstrated a deep caring
for the special church mis-
sion, the Early Childhood
Center. His son has been
enrolled since the Romigs
arrived in 2004.
The investigation and sub-
sequent publicity associated
with the center are matters
that few pastors will ever
encounter in their entire min-
istry. Stepping into the swirl,
Chris has been a source of
strength, compassion, com-.
prehensive attention and


integrity.
As a board member for 25
years of one of America's elite
early childhood facilities,
Summit School in Elgin, llM.,
and as a 30-year advisory
board member of Highlights
for Children, America's pre-
mier publication for young
children, I am very knowl-
edgeable of the flaws in hu-
man behavior that can affect
even the noblest efforts to
provide for children. There is
no sure formula for dealing
with the consequences of the
ill treatment of children.
I am thoroughly comfort-
able with Chris Romig's fresh,
new leadership at the Early
Childhood Center. My pur-
pose in writing is to express
my personal conviction:
There is no safer or more sub-
stantive person from whom
to seek counsel should you
ever have a problem and
wonder, "to whom shall I go?"

THE WORD ON THE STREET


Do you think the elderly
should be required to take an
annual driving test?


Albert Vlaenderen
Albert VanVlaenderen (Ven-
ice): Yes, I support an annual
driving test for the elderly.
Our reflexes slow down and
peripheral vision can become
very poor. The overall deterio-
ration can make driving
unsafe. I had to take a vision
test this year to renew my
license. I was glad to do it. It's
all about safety.


terrible for someone to lose
their independence, but we
must have safe drivers on the
road. Even young people
would benefit from an annual
test.


Ed Dabrolet
Ed Dabrolet (Fort Lauderdale):
Yes. I would support an annual
driving test for the elderly even
more so than a vision test at
renewal, especially in Florida.
We have all these partners dri-
ving. One backs up while the
other is checking to make sure
the way is clear. They're look-
ing out for each other. There
ought to be an age limit after
which all people should be
required to take a test. It's real-
ly a problem with reaction
time.

Dick Drolet


Dick Drolet (Washington,
D.C.): Absolutely. It would
weed out the people who
can't see adequately, or who
have trouble knowing which
is the gas pedal and which is
the brake pedal because of
dementia and those kinds of
things.


LouAnn Myers
LouAnn Myers (Venice): It's
not a bad idea. I think every-
body needs an annual driving
test after about 40 years of
age. We could all use a
refresher course.


STATE LAW
A state law took effect last
year requiring vision tests for
drivers older than 79 when
they renew their licenses. The
law also directed the Florida
Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles to
study the effects of aging on
the ability to drive.

Woman attacks officer
with knife
A police officer nearly shot a
womanwho attackedhimwith
a knife; a Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office report shows.
Kelly L Houston, 41, 200
block Grove Road, Venice, was
arrested and charged with
aggravated assault on a law
enforcement officer with a
deadly weapon.
The incident happened at
Houston's residence at 6:17
p.m., Feb. 2.
According to the police
report, a female called 9-1-1
but before the operator could
learn what the problem was,
the caller hung up. Deputies
went to the home and saw
Houston and her boyfriend
sitting at a patio table in the
front yard. Houston said she.
did not call 911.
Nevertheless, she looked
like she was very angry and
agitated. She grabbed her
boyfriend's shirt by the collar.
The officer told her to let go
of the boyfriend's collar or she,
would be taken into custody.
Houston reached into her
waistband and pulled out a
silver pocketknife. She open-
ed it, came around the table
and charged at the officer.
The officer drew his gun
and ordered her to drop the
knife. He was about to shoot
her when the boyfriend jump-
ed up and grabbed her from
behind. The officer was un-
able to fire because he could
not get a clear shot.
The boyfriend held Hou-
ston long enough for officers
to finally handcuff her. How-
ever, she cut him several'-
times during the struggle.
The final insult was, when
the arresting officer tackled
the woman to the ground, her
Chihuahua ran up and bit
him in the face.

Sarasota County's new Ford

hybrid SUVs are a 'great escape'
Continuing its trend toward environmentally conscious purchases, Sarasota
County has ordered five new Ford Escape hybrid sport utility vehicles. This is
the second batch of hybrids forthe county, which purchased its first in August
2002 and has since expanded the fleet to three Toyota Prius hybrids that have
been averaging 41 miles per gallon.
The. newhybrid Escape is identical in appearance to its non-hybrid
namesake but boasts an EPArating of 36 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on
the highway. It has only been available in Florida since the end of January, and
Sarasota County is the first to use the car locally. Other buyers will have to wait
until the end of February to take possession.
Hybrids earn their extra mileage and low fuel emissions by powering off both
gasoline or electric engines. Regenerative braking systems recharge the
battery automatically. Previous models like the Prius have been smaller-style
sedans, butwith a five-person seating capacity, extra cargo room and a 1,000-
pound towing capacity, the Ford Escape is the first fully hybrid SUV produced
by a domestic automaker. Ford claims that drivers should be able to drive
between 400-500 miles on one 15-gallon tank.
The county already owns 37 non-hybrid Ford Escapes. Sarasota Ford is
providing the new vehicles at a cost of about $24,000 each.

Happy

Super Bowl

Sunday

You just never know who
you'll run into at the airport.
When. I recently took my
friends down to Fort Myers
airport, I was walking and
looking at monitors instead of
where I was going and literal-
ly ran into a huge, tall man.
When I looked up, all I could
think of saying was, "Mike
Ditka, you are so cool."
I am a Cleveland Browns
fan and our team needs you."
The former Chicago Bears
coach laughed, thanked me
for the compliment and rush-
ed off to his gate. I am still
kicking myself for not taking
out my camera and getting a
picture.
The No. 1 Queen of Venice
TV, Vee Garry Chiulli, took
center stage at Michael's On
East this weekend when she
introduced former Speaker of
the House Newt Gingrich to
the sell-out crowd. Newt was
in town promoting his new
book, "Winning The Future,"
and helping raise funds for St.
NMartha's Church.Vee was also
in charge of moderating the
question-and-answer portion
of the program. As a former
teacher, Vee is an expert at
questioning strategies.
Ken Wurdeman is the new
development director for Big
Brothers Big Sisters. Ken and
his family come from Lincoln,
Neb., where he served as pro-
ject director for the Universit-
of Nebraska and marketing
director for the state. Joy
Mahler, executive director of
Big Brothers Big Sisters, and
the rest of the crew look for-
ward to working with Ken.
Raymond and Preston
Scoboria were. in town
recently to help their mom,
Gloria, celebrate her 90th
birthday. This vivacious lady
is a joy. She is a great writer,
loves music and manages to
attend many events.in town.
Belated happy birthday to
Edna Wheatley. She is a regu-
lar at Venice volleyball games
and cheers for the Venice Lady
Indians. Edna's grandson is the
coach. This nice lady is one of
the popular residents and
crafters at BellaVita,.
Happy birthday to Tali Ur-
sel, who celebrates lucky 7
this weekend.
As a retired teacher, I al-
ways enjoy hearing news
about former students. Kathy
Hannon, administrative as-
sistant to Gene Burke at Ven-
ice Hospital, tells me her son,
Bill, reported to Fort Sill,
Okla.,'.recently. He'll be taking
his basic training there. I had
Billy in the fifth grade, and
Kathy and I laughed as we
both agreed he prefers to be
called Bill these day. Certainly
we all wish Bill well and will
keep him in our prayers.
GoldaRadefeld and Sharon
Brown want all trivia buffs to
get registered for the Women's
Sertoma Quiz Night. Teams of
four will compete at Jacaranda
Trace on March 6 and all pro-
ceeds benefit the Venice High

That splashing you heard
recently was the cast of "No
Sex, Please, We're British" cel-
ebrating their great run. Deb
and John Kontor held the
pool party at their house, giv-
ing the Venice Little Theatre
group a chance to relax.

A GREEK HISTORY LESSON ABOUT ST, BARBARA I
Barbara lived in the city of Heliopolis in Anatolia around 290 A.D. She
was the daughter of Dioscorus, a fanatic and very well known pagan
of Nicomedia, and governor under the rule of Maximius. She was
highly educated and of great beauty. Her father did everything possi-
ble to protect her from the loose morals of the time and of ideologi-
cal influences, including Christianity, that were attracting converts.
Secretly, however, she was able to meet with some converts who
told her about Christ and his teachings. Convinced of the truth con-
cerning Jesus, she became a Christian.whose love inspired all who
heard of her.
Upon learning of her faith in Christ, her father used every means of
punishment to change her mind. When it became.obvious that her .
love for Christ was stronger, she was surrendered to the authorities
as a Christian. After much torture it was concluded that she would
never forsake Christ for her own life.
When a public execution following a series of tortures was staged, t ,_ 1
Dioscorus became so enraged with her devotion to Christ that he Barbara
beheaded his daughter with his own sword in 306 A.D. He was quick- Barbara
ly punished for his actions, as a bolt of lightening struck him, killing him instantly Soon after, to honor
her devotion, Barbara was elevated to sainthood.
St. Barbara is the patron saint of artillerymen, firemen and those engaged in hazardous.occupations.
She also is highly venerated in the Western Church. Her feast day is observed on Deci 4.

as they were the favorite
treats served to the winners of
ancient athletic games.
Similar to espresso, Greek
coffee is quite strong and
served in a small cup. Indicate
how much sugar you want .in.
it sketo (none), metmo (1
tablespoon sugar), or gylko (2
tablespoons sugar). Don't
make the "tourist" mistake of:
drinking the sludge at the
bottom. (There is a long tradi-
tion in Greece of reading cof-
fee cups -- the sludge and
foretelling the future.)
Guided tours of St. Barbara's
Greek Orthodox Church will
take place approximately every
half hour. The church houses
inspirational mosaic iconogra-
phy created by the world fa-
mous iconographer Sirio
Tonelli and fresco artist Leo-
nidas Diamantopoulos.
The Byzantine iconogra-
phy will be explained both in
terms of its religious signifi-
cance as well as the intricate
way the iconographer created
the masterpieces.


Orthodoxy,, say chuch offi-
cials, proclaims the timeless
Christian message of love,
forgiveness, kindness and
eternal life. Proper dress is
required inside the church.
Shirts with sleeves (no tank
tops) and 'footwear are re-
quired.
The entire festival is de-
signed as an Agora or market-
place where one can stroll
through various booths that
will have everything from
Greek worry beads to sailor
hats, jewelry, vases and more.
The many artists and crafts-
men contribute much to the
atmosphere.
The Bakaliko, Greek country
store, will offer shoppers a vari-
ety of packaged foods, Greek
herbs, cheese, olives and olive
oil, and preserves for those who
would like to make a delicious
Greek meal at home.

bet, Greek wines are unique.
They typically don't fit into
standard French wine cate-
gories like Chardornnay, Mer-
lot or Cabernet. Most varieties
of grapes cultivated in Greece
trace their lineage to antiqui-
ty. You'll find Restina. Roditis,
Rouge Ired), Blanc (white)
and Mavrodaphane, as well as
Greek beer and a variety of
soft drinks.
Or visit the Kafenion, ,a
Greek coffee shop. In every
Greek town and village, even"
in the most remote areas, the
central meeting place is the
Kafenion. It is more than a
place to sip coffee. It is where
the townfolk gather for lively
discussions about politics or
just light banter. It's not un-
usual to spot a game of cards
or backgammon in progress.
To, go with the coffee,
Greeks often eat loukoumath-
es, Greek honey puffs, a fav-
orite for all glendi guests, just


-i


Greek pastries, along with a full menu of traditional Greek foods, will be on sale in the Agora at
the Greek festival in Sarasota. Don't miss the cooking demonstrations that are sprinkled
throughout each day.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


11


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


Q. My husband cannot
retrieve messages from our
answering machine because
he cannot understand the
words of the recorded
messages. He says the voices
are loud but not clear and he
says people talk too fast
when leaving their messages.
What will help this
situation?
A. There is new answering
machine available specifically
for hearing impaired persons. It
has a powerful amplifier and a
high fidelity speaker which
produces distortion free sound.
It is very easy to operate and
comes ready to go with a
prerecorded message. Most
importantly, the speed of the
recorded messages can be
adjusted to allow your husband
to replay them at a slower rate.
The cost of this answering
machine is comparable to
others on the market but this
machine must be special
ordered. To find out more abut
this answering machine and
how to order one call the
Audiologist at Woodmere

Test your cholesterol knowledge


STAFF REPORT

People are constantly
bombarded with information
about the cholesterol prob-
lem in the United States and
how to approach it.
There's often so much
news, it's easy to suffer from
information overload. To help
break through the clutter,
Los Angeles-based registered
dietitian and heart health
expert Heidi Becker takes five
popular claims and explains
what's fact and what's just
hype.
Cholesterol in our
bodies only comes from
the foods we eat
False. This is a common
misconception. Most people
naturally produce adequate
levels of cholesterol to meet
their needs. Consumption of
animal-based products such
as eggs, cheese, butter and
meats adds excess cholesterol

and-answer session to follow.

Oral cancer screening

ety, in partnership with the

to our bodies, which is why
it's important to limit your
intake of these foods.
Plant-based nutrients
reduce cholesterol
True. Nutrients called
plant sterols and stanols
inhibit absorption of both
dietary cholesterol and, cho-
lesterol produced naturally in
the body. In fact, the U.S. gov-
ernment recommends con-
sumption of two grams per
day of these nutrients as part
of its Therapeutic Lifestyle,
Changes (TLC) guidelines that
help lower cholesterol natu-
rally for those with borderline
to high cholesterol. They are
found in plants, nuts\' corn
and rice, but only in trace
amounts you'd have to con-
sume around 55 bananas in
one day to consume the rec-
ommended two grams. An
easier solution is a plant sterol
and stanol supplement,
such as Nature Made


Friendship Center volunteer,
will perform the screenings.

Center at 584-0041 to reserve

CholestOff.
All fiber helps
manage cholesterol
False. While all fiber has
health benefits, not all fiber
helps with cholesterol reduc-
tion. Viscous soluble fiber,
found in foods such as oats,
barley, psyllium and prunes,
helps reduce cholesterol
levels when eaten as part of a
diet low in saturated fat and
cholesterol. Insoluble fiber
helps with regularity by
pushing waste through the
digestive tract. The American
Heart Association recom-
mends adults consume 25 to
30 grams of total fiber per
day.
Any kind of exercise helps

people is at least 30 minutes
of aerobic exercise on most

Women's group
Wednesday, Feb. 16, Woman
to Woman, a cancer educa-
tion and support group,
meets, at 3:30 p.m. Bon


sound like a lot,- the benefits
quickly outweigh the work,
and any exercise is better than
none at all. Regular exercise
has been shown to help lower
LDL cholesterol, raise HDL
cholesterol and lower blood
pressure.

Only large cholesterol
reductions make
a difference
False. A small reduction in
cholesterol levels can have a
big impact for many. Studies
show that lowering cholest-
erol just 10 percent can re-
duce one's risk of heart dis-
ease by 30 percent.
Becker encourages every-
one to get their cholesterol
screened and to consult their
health care professional to
develop a customized treat-
ment program if needed. For

Medical Engineering Volunteers

provide vital resource in South County


KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST

Stuck on the toilet
"I am over 100 years old,"
started the call. "I have to get
up during the night and my
legs are no. longer strong
enough. I got stuck on the
toilet last night."
Thank goodness we work
closely with a small not-for-
profit called Medical Engin-
eering Volunteers. MEV is a
group of professionals-engi-
neers, physicians, physical
therapists,' technicians and
tradesmen, who are devoted
to assisting the disabled and
disadvantaged by the design,'
engineering and innovation
of equipment and facilities.
Charlie Pate in Venice and


George Charette in North Port
are the keys to this volunteer
effort. These two have come
to the rescue more times than
I can count. When one of our
communities' elders need
some modifications to their
bathroom or other rooms in
the house MEV is there to
help them remain in their
own home.
One lady was unable to
stand without support to
cook her meals. A chair was
too low and it was dangerous
reaching across the stove. So
George put in a pole from
the floor to the ceiling near
the stove. The lady wrapped
her arm around the pole
and continued to cook her
own meals. I use to tease her
about having a "dance pole"
in her kitchen.
But I am getting worried.
Charlie and George keep
having birthdays and they
need help. I am giving them
too much business for grab
bars, chair lifts, wheelchair
ramps and some custom
designed fixtures for very
severely disabled individuals.
These guys not only make
sure they meet all codes but


also look the house over for
safety issues and other ac-
cessibility needs. Our goal is
to allow these people to
continue to live independ-
ently in their 'own home.
Allow them to bath and toilet
themselves, cook their own
meals and not be trapped
inside their own house.
This small nonprofit is a
vital resource in our South
County communities. They
give of their time and engi-
neering talent. Our elders
benefit by not having to leave
their homes but continue to
live with dignity and indepen-
dence.
Do you want to make a
difference? Your time and
talent are vitally needed to
keep this program going and
meet the growing demand.
So who wants to help my
100-year-old elder retrofit her
bathroom so she doesn't get
stuck again? Call George at
423-1001 or me at 584-0060.

A bargain is only a bargain when ...


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

My children have always
accused me of giving advice.
I tell them that's not advice -
that's learned observations.
We all start observing
things from the time we are
little babies, when we learn
that a loud cry will get better
results than a soft cry.
It's just not everybody that
feels they have to share their
stored information, like I do.
Before I am gone I could al-
ways store it on a Web site
for them. But I have a feeling
that they would not listen to
it then either, so I thought I
would just share some 'with
you.
One sunny April day I
walked into the friendly
neighborhood hardware store
to use, their copy machine. A
man who was using it looked


up, smiled broadly and said,
"Sorry, I Will be a few minutes.
I have a lot to copy." He
explained that his wallet was
stolen, and it took him two
months to get a new driver
license. He wished he had
copied everything in his wal-
let and kept it in his file. It
really made sense-to me. I
guess today an alternative
would be to use a digital
camera to take pictures of
credit cards, etc. but I'm
too old to know about that.
A very good friend who
had taught school in Mich-
igan and driven everywhere
retired in Bay Indies with her
husband. Like many a pro-
tective gentleman, he did the
driving from then on. Then
one day he got sick and went
to the hospital. She had never
driven in Venice, and literally
panicked. After he died she
would never drive on U.S. 41
Bypass. Getting around town
on the side roads took a lot
longer. She, too, asked me to
tell everybody not to let their
husbands do 100 percent of
the driving when they retire.
I expect I absorbed more
in college than I realized, but
I don't remember much that
I learned. One statement
from a noted economics pro-


fessor has always remained
in my mind, but nobody likes
his advice when I repeat it
and the stores really don't like
it. He said "a bargain is only a
bargain if you would have
bought it otherwise." It does
make sense, and would have
saved me a lot of clutter and
cleaning out over the years.
But who wants to make sense,
particularly about shopping?
I knew I was becoming
noted for my advice when my
children and grandchildren
were visiting. We went to the
beach, and were trying to fig-
ure out how to find each oth-
er among the crowds. My
grandson said, "That's easy,
we'll just follow the advice
and it will lead us right to
you." My other clue was when
they gave me a beautiful pot-
tery jar labeled "Motherly
Advice." Inside was a cute
poem that in a very nice way
said, "when you have some
advice put it in the jar and put
the lid on. When we need
some we will go.to the jar -
reaching in for advice instead
of a cookie."
They do tease me about
my advice, but I deserve it.
The good news is' that this is
all the advice I have the ener-
gy for today.


Most senior drivers view driving issues differently


Dear Savvy Senior,
Help! My mom is 82 years old
and still driving and it makes me-


very nervous. She thinks she's
still a good driver and says that
she can't stand the idea of
depending on her kids to take
her everywhere, so she just
keeps on going. What can I do
to convince mom to STOP
driving, and do you know of any
age limits for senior drivers?
Thank you Nervous Back
Seat Daughter
Dear Nervous,
Be gentle with your mom!
Keep in mind that lots older
parents and adult children
view driving issues quite dif-
ferently. For most of us, espe-


cially seniors, driving is often
linked to feeling indepen-
dent, competent, and being
a part of society.
Speed limits yes -
age limits no
Age alone does not
predict fitness behind the
wheel. Driving skills vary
enormously among indivi-
duals. It's poor eyesight,
hearing loss, slower reaction
times, and reduced muscle
strength and flexibility
that can affect driving
ability.


Savvy fact
Older drivers have a lower
frequency of accidents and
fatalities overall, but a higher
rate of accidents and fatali-
ties per mile driven (second
only to that of drivers aged
16 to 24).
Savvy tips
Instead of telling your
mom she can't drive any-
more, include her as an
active part of the driving
decision. Ask her to take a
senior driving course, like the
AARP 55-ALIVE driver safety


program for seniors to assess
her driving skills (see other
senior driving resources list-
ed below). She needs to feel
that she is still in control and
that you respect her ability
to direct her own life.

Couple goes on a Yukon quest to see 'toughest' sled dog race


BY PEGGY ISPHORDING
GUEST WRITER

This is part two ofa three-
part series.

The Yukon Quest route has
10 checkpoints where mush-
ers are required to stop.
Volunteer veterinarians check
each dog for signs of fatigue
or illness and they reserve the
right to have any dog with-
drawn who appears unable to
continue the race. The vets'
tasks are exhausting. There
were 10 vets who volunteered
to work at the Quest and to
examine each dog nearly a
dozen times along the trail;
this amounts to about 6,000
canine physical in two
weeks. Quest vets who had
flown in to the Yukon from all
over the world, including one
from Florida, share a com-
mon interest in sled dog med-
icine. They have developed a
highly specialized method of
treatment over the years. In
addition to being experts in
traditional veterinary medi-
cine, they now treat sled dogs
not as dogs but as athletes,
utilizing massage therapy,
acupuncture and chiropractic
manipulation to keep the
teams healthy. Their collec-
tive love of sled dogs com-
bined with a love of the North
make these valuable volun-
teers uniquely qualified to
care for these extraordinary
athletes.
While a team of vets is
checking their dogs, mushers
are undergoing their own

At each stop, sled bags are
inspected to make sure that
they contain all of the "man-
datory" equipment which
includes a sleeping bag, hand
axe, snowshoes, veterinary
records for each dog, small
amounts of promotional ma-

additional eight booties for
each dog. Failure to produce
any of these items may result
in a fine or a time penalty. In
addition to the checkpoints,
there are five "dog drops."
These are places that are
staffed by race officials and
veterinarians. If a musher has
an injured or sick animal, this
is the place where it must be
taken. Once a determination
is made as to the kind of care
the dog needs, appropriate

The level of activity was
unbelievable. Town streets

as handlers scurried around
running errands for their
mushers. In a campground
on the banks of the Yukon
River across from Dawson
City, we found tired but hap-
py dogs bedded down on
fresh straw, sleeping content-
edly with full tummies, pro-
tected from bad weather by
blue tarps strung on lines.
Handlers had arrived ahead
of the teams and prepared the

plies for the second half of the
race and make sure the dogs
were comfortable. It is against
Quest rules for the dogs to be
left alone in the campsite so,
in addition to their other
duties, handlers remain bed-
ded down with the dogs.
In Dawson City, as at every
checkpoint, the musher must
check with race officials to
have sled bags inspected to
make sure they contain all of
the mandatory equipment.


After passing inspection,
mushers went to the town
hall/checkpoint to talk to
reporters, have coffee, discuss
the perils of the trail with
other mushers, check the race
status and give their spouses
and children a lot of hugs.
Only then were they off to one
of the town's hotels for hot
showers and comfortable
beds with real sheets 36

'Hero Mama' explores growing up

without a father killed in Vietnam


BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUEST WRITER
Back in the winter of 1968,
there was a snowstorm in the
town where we were living,
one of the biggest in decades.
My brother and I were at an
aunt's house then, and the
next morning, my father
walked through knee-deep
snow to bring us home. That
afternoon, he and Mom pull-
ed our beds and theirs into
the dining room, to conserve
fuel. It was fun for a few days,
playing on our blankets so
near the kitchen, while Dad
watched Walter Cronkite on
the TV brought in from the
living room.
That is my first memory of
the Vietnam War: seeing
footage of battles on TV while
my mother made dinner a
few feet away.
Because I was a child
myself, it never occurred to
me that other kids had dad-
dies who were overseas. I'm
not really sure I ever knew
anyone whose father was in
Vietnam, because kids didn't
talk about that. I'm glad Karen
Spears Zacharias has, though.
Her new memoir "Hero
Mama" (c.2005, William
Morrow) is about her soldier
father and her mother's hero-
ism in the aftermath of loss.
In July of 1966, Staff Ser-
geant David Spears was killed
in Vietnam. He was survived
by his wife, Shelby, and his
children, Frankie, Karen and
Linda. Only a few weeks be-
fore his death, Shelby had
moved her family from Ha-
waii to a mobile home in
Tennessee, in anticipation of
Spears' return. There was
family in the South; both Da-
vid and Shelby grew up there.
That was where they might
raise their children. Instead,
that's where Shelbyburied her
husband.
From that time forward,
David Spears' family keenly
felt the loss of husband and
father. Karen writes of several
household moves, where the
wheels were put on the house
and someone dragged it to
the next trailer park. She
wrTites of her brother's brush-
es with trouble, alcoholism,
and drug abuse, and of how
her sister taught herself to be
quiet and stay out of the way.
Zacharias tells how she dealt
with the loss that nobody
talked about, the support she

GRAPHIC COURTESy OF WILLIAM MORROW
"Hero Mama" is a daughter's tale of a father who didn't return
from Vietnam and the mother who kept her family together.


got from church members,
the search for the man her
father was, and the realization
that he wasn't the only hero in
the family.
Shelby Spears had a ninth-
grade education when she
was widowed. She eventually
graduated from college,
bought two houses, and
raised her children. "Hero
Mama" is a book about grow-
ing up without a father, but
more than anything, it's a 384-
page love letter to family and
a mother who did her best, as
bewildered by the death of
the man she adored as her
children were by the loss of
the father they remembered.


Author Zacharias is a first-
class storyteller, and parts of
this book will make you
laugh. As for the rest of this
book, I defy you not to cry
when you read it.
A few weeks ago, I opened
a blank page on which I will
record my list of Best Books of
2005. "Hero lanma" is the first
book on it.
The Bookworm is Terri
Schlichenmeyer. Terri has
been reading since she was 3
years old and never goes any-
where without a book. She,
lives in West Salem, Wis., with
her husband, three dogs and
9,000 books.

Tipsy is a 14-pound neutered male Hurricane Charley kitty res-
cued by a Port Charlotte family. They couldn't keep Tipsy
because there's a new baby in the home. Tipsy is now living
with an Englewood foster family who renamed the big boy Mr.
T. He's about 6 years old, vet-checked, received all his tests
and shots and is available for adoption from Englewood
Animal Rescue Sanctuary. His permanently "tipsy" left ear like-
ly occurred during the hurricane, but hasn't impaired his ability
to cuddle and love. For more information, call Diane Brown,
EARS program director, at (941) 475-0636.

EARS will have Sheba vet-checked, inoculated and spayed for
her new permanent parents. For more information, call Diane

RACE ,.I
hours of paradise in the ifid-
dle of an efidurance race like
no other.
Dawson City, the town
made famous by Jack London
and Robert Service, was the
site of the Klondike gold rush
and it still has a unique flavor
that echoes its rowdy mining
days. Normally quiet during
the winter, Dawson City
comes alive during Quest
days. Fans arrive from near
and far to see how the teams
are performing and to try
their luck at Diamond Tooth
Gerties Gambling Hall, home
of the "SourToe Cocktail."
Strangely, many of those fans
are from Europe where the


. Yukon Quest is much better
known than in the United
State. A few years ago, one of
the major German tire mak-
ers, Fulda, was a key sponsor
of the Quest. Fulda provided
parkas and dog booties to
mushers and filled hotels
with TV crews and journalists.
Even though Fulda Tire no
longer sponsors the Quest,
Europeans remember the TV
coverage and visit in large
numbers, hoping to see for
themselves this unique, inter-
national sled dog race and the
vast wilderness in which the
teams race.'
Many of Dawson City's
hotels close for the winter but


we booked a room at- the
delightful Aurora Inn. Owned
by Europeans, the Aurora is
much like an inn, which has
been transported, board-by-
board, from the Alps. Break-
fast, served in a large open
spare room near the lobby,
consisted of freshly baked
croissants, cheeses, cold cuts,
jams and freshly brewed cof-
fee. What a perfect way to
start a cold, snowy day. Most
folks visit Dawson City in the
summer when it becomes a
regular stop on theAlaska/Can-
ada cruise-tour packages.
The final part of this story
will appear on next Sunday's
Travel page.

Residents of Ramblers Rest Resort
Campgound played a game of bocce
recently.
Bocce, which originated in Italy, is one
of the oldest of all lawn bowling games.
The game was developed during the


Playing the angles off bounced
shots makes the game of Bocce
very similar to table shuffleboard or
billiards.
Italian immigrants arriving in the
United States made bocce popular in the
large Italian neighborhoods of New York
and other large cities.
SAfter declining in popularity
during the middle of the 20th
century, bocce regained popularity
during the 1970s in California.
Today the cit- of Martinez, Calif.,
has leagues that host about 1,000 each
week.
The U.S. Bocce Federation says there
are about I million players in the United
States current. .


Roman Empire and played in the Italian
Alps using stones. Balls were substituted
for stones and the modern game of
bocce began.
The game can be played between two
players or two teams of up to four play-
ers on a team. A small target ball, known
as a "jack" or "pallino," is thrown out
first. The players then throw in turn, with
the object being for each team to get its
four balls closest to the target ball.
The bocce court is rectangular, usually
60-80 feet long and 12 feet wide sur-
rounded by a 4 1/2-inch high wooden
barrier.
The rules of bocce allow the
players to throw, bounce or roll the ball
towards the Jack, even using the wooden
side barriers to bounce the ball.


' The residents of Ramblers Rest Resort
play on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
afternoons. The campground is located
on River Road in Venice.
