Red tide cure passes first test

Research at Venice High School confirms that a
local man's formula kills the organism that causes
red tide. In phase two students will test its impact --
on marine life. P '


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Since 2001, Venice-area
inventor Bob Rigby has been
telling anyone who would lis-
ten that he has the cure for
red tide. Now he has outside
proof to back up his claim.
Venice High School re-
searchers published results
on its Web site this week that
confirm Rigby's secret formu-
la works.
Not only does. the formula
work. say researchers, but it is
effective in low doses.
Preliminary results also
show the formula, even at full
dose, didn't kill phytoplank-
ton, a good omen for phase
two research that will docu-
ment the formula's impact on
marine life.
'The stakes are high. Rigby
says only two other people
know his secret formula for
killing Karenia brevis, the
dinoflagellate that causes red
tide, an algal bloom that kills
marine life, causes respirato-
ry stress in people, and can
make even the most beautiful
Florida beach pretty unpleas-
ant.
The discovery could affect

teacher

beaches and countries
around the world that suffer
from outbreaks of red tide.
Rigby has patents pending
for the formula and for its
application mechanism.
It was under this cloak of
secrecy that Venice High
teachers and science stu-
dents confirmed what Rigby
announced several years ago
- his cure for red dde works.
Surprising results

dedicated veteran science
teacher who has taught at the,
school for years, and teacher

Flasks containing red tide have been mixed with Rigby's for-

needed to kill red tide.

Area inventor Bob Rigby, pictured above, holds a vile of what he claims to be a cure for red tide. Venice High School teachers
and students are testing the invention during science class, and so far it has passed the first round. Rigby has patents pending
on the invention that he's claimed since 2001 takes care of red tide, which is currently off Venice's shoreline.


Dan Kelly, a band of students
took on the tedious task of
counting cells killed by the
formula.
From August through miL-
October students grew cul-
tures of Karenia bievis. The
red tide cells were provided
by Florida Marine Research
Institute in flasks in an envi-
ronmental chamber.
At first researchers tested
the formula in concentra-
tions of 50 parts per million or
greater. At those concentra-
tion levels, none of the red
tide cells survived. Rigby said
he was surprised by the speed
at which the cells were killed
at ftll dose only 30 min-
utes.
VHS researchers then low-
ered concentration levels of


RED TIDE IS IN THE AIR
The National Oceapic.and Atmospheric Administration
informed health officials through'a bulletin issued Thursday that a
harmful algal bloom (red tide) has been identified in south
Manatee and Sarasota counties. The gulf beaches from Siesta Key
to Venice have moderate concentrations of the algal bloom that
will continue to move south through the weekend.
Residents and visitors may experience coughing and upper
respiratory irritation at beach and coastal areas. Health officials
encourage those living in coastal areas who develop symptoms
to reduce their exposure to the irritants by spending time indoors
over the weekend.

the formula, diluting it by
one-half.
"At first the formula only
had slight effects on reduc-
ing populations numbers at[


concentration levels of 2-8
ppm. As we applied the same
dose of formula daily over a
period of three days, we
noticed the formula grealdy


reduced or totally killed all of
the population of Karenia
brelis in our testing flasks,"
said Powell.
This means that the fully
concentrated formula would
be effective at 5-8 ppm,
Powell said.
"The important thing about
this experiment is that it
proves a lethal dose of the for-
mula does not have to be given
all at once. We can build up to
the lethal level through a series
of applications," Powell said.
VH-IS students have been
involved in observing, per-
forming population counts,
and in making the nutrient
solutions for culturing the
Karenia brevis.

Capping city height


City staff is proposing a
,"target area" on the
island with an absolute
maximum building
height of 35 feet and
having council decide
on special exceptions
in the rest of city when
builders want four or
more stories.

Granting more than 35 feet
for a building's height has
turned into a bit of a rubber-
stamp process, according to
Jim Myers.
That may be about to
change.
The former nine-year
Venice City Council member

mission member admits the
process to allow four or more

Venice officials have al-
ways known their beach
renourishment project
would require making three
new artificial reefs.
Making those
reefs out of lime-
stone, however, is
something new.
City Manager
Marty Black, who is
also an environmen-
tal engineer, couldn't
explain why concrete
- the city's first, BLACK
cheaper and histori-
cally most common choice
- cannot be used as an arti-
ficial reef to offset the
impact of dropping nearly a
million cubic yards of sand
along the beach and shore-
line.


"We've been asking (the
state) that question all
along, but we have not got-
ten a satisfactory answer,"
Black said. "There's no real
environmental reason -Pre-
ferring one over another."
On Friday, the

Each time researchers test
the formula, Rigby brings in a
tiny bottle of the clear liquid
formula to test in small appli-
cations.
He is involved in testing
process as an observer while
students and educators actu-
ally conduct the tests of the
formula.
Phase two
The next phase of testing
Rigby's formula starts soon.
VHS's Red Tide Project will
test the formula on fish and
invertebrate animals at vary-
ing concentration levels to
see if the organisms are
affected or harmed in any
way. v
In phase one tests, phyto-
plankton remained alive after
being dosed with concentra-
tion levels of the formula that
killed red tide.
"We couldn't believe our
eyes," Rigby said.
They can't wait for the
phase two research.
"We're going to revive fish
already infected with red tide,
fish that start to have trouble
breathing. We want to know
how many fish could be
revived at various concentra-
tion levels," Rigby said.
This is a wonderful oppor-
tunity to be involved in re-
search at the high school
level, Powell said. Many more
students will be participating
in phase two of the project, he
said.
Students will test fish and
shrimp in small aquariums.
"If the other organisms
show no signs of ill effects
from the formula, then Mr.
Rigby's formula may be a
potential answer to our red
tide problems," said Powell.
Patents pending
Rigby is loathe to describe
his inventions until the pa-
tents are issued.
You won't find a test tube
or flask or any other science
equipment in his home. He
won't say where he keeps his
formula, only that he devel-
oped his formula in his two-
,car garage, ,a nondescript'
room that looks like any other
garage.
The apparatus to spread
the liquid formula into the
ocean is a "large apparatus
pulled by a marine vehicle,"
Rigby said.
The first patent is expected
to iss u e within a ear.
It took eight years of
research and development,
but Rigby is confident the
implementation of his prod-
ucts is only three to five years

away. That's how long he esti-
mates it will take to get city,
county and state agency
approval.
Foreign patents are in the
works in a dozen countries.
"I'm really excited about
the foreign countries that
have contacted me," Rigby
said.
Those aren't the only
patents Rigby has pending.
He is refiling for another
patent for an environmental-
ly friendly street sweeper that
removes storm water pollu-
tants from streets and high-
ways before it can reach
Florida's waters. That ma-
chine was successfully tested
several times by the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency and Florida's
Department of
Environmental Protection,
Rigby said.
He claims the machine is
capable of removing 12 to 15
times the amount of heavy

metals and pollutants from
street surfaces than a conven-
tional street sweeper.
The state is giving the
souped-up street cleaner a
second lobk, asking for more
test data that were somehow
overlooked, Rigby said.
The road to VHS
Rigby's early attempts to
confirm that his formula
works failed.
Red tape and concern
about losing state and federal
funding scared off local
marine research labs, claims
Rigby.
He tells of one lab that did-
' n't even return his calls. He
contacted a group that finan-
cially supported the research
laboratory and met with its
board of directors. They
wanted the formula badly,
said Rigby, asking for a non-
disclosure agreement allow-
ing them to verify the formula.
using a private laboratory to


confirm the formula's de-
structive capability.
Rigby agreed. The non-dis-
closure agreement included a
financial penalty clause that
benefited Rigby in case some-
one stole the formula. The
clause was guttined by the orga-
nization's attorneys.
"It turns out all they want-
edwas to get the formula and
run to the marine laboratory
with the formula composi-
tion. I ended that associa-
tion," Rigby said.
Venice City Council asked
Rigby whom he would like:
to confirm his research.
Disappointed with local con-
tacts, Rigby recommended
Venice High School's science
department.
Ken "Haddad, director of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission, put Rigby in
contact with the Florida Ma-
rine Research institute. ,
He paved the way for

The city of Venice provided

tially covered the cost of a

nitely help Venice," Rigby
said. "There's the very real
possibility of developing
some kind of headquarters in
Venice to combat red tide."
"It could bring a lot of
high-end employees to the
area down the road," he said.
Think of the jobs that
could be created by develop-
ing the formula, said Rigby,
and to build the apparatus to
distribute the formula in
ocean waters, and then
applying it throughout the
Gulf of Mexico and other
states like Texas, North
Carolina and Maine even
other countries like Japan,
with its huge red tide prob-
lem, Canada, and South
Korea.
When red tide hits, tourists
pack up and leave the area in
droves. Rigby thinks if he
could solve the red tide prob-
lem it would be a huge boon
to the. tourism industry, area
restaurants and hotels, even
the fishing industry.
"If we used this treatment
60 miles off shore, red tide
would never get to the beach-
es," Rigby said.

In 1957, state lawmakers

"It's a pretty complicated


issue," Rasbury said. "The
county wouldn't consider
leaving lightly, not without
thinking it through. The navi-
gation district has taken own-
ership of a lot of property over
the years, and every year it
returns a portion of the tax
money in grants."
Impact '
The navigation district's
ability to secure federal grants
for coastal projects may be in
some jeopardy. Federal offi-
cials have warned communi-
ties with shallow draft inlets such
as New Pass that Congress will
no longer appropriate funds for
dredging projects.
While federal dollars for
dredging inlets may dry up,
Navigation District Executive
Director Chuck Listowski
believes funds will still be
appropriated for waterway
projects.
, "I've received positive feed-
back on a $1 million founda-
tion grant to clear four restrict-
ed areas," he said.
The money would be a
down payment toward design,
engineering and permits for a
large project that would also
include rehabilitation of the
Venice Jetties. If the county
pulls out of the navigation dis-
trict, local officials would have
to arrange for such work.

received $200,000 more in
benefits through projects and
grants than it had. con-
tributed in tax money over a
half century, which Listowski
partially attributes to interest
realized from unspent rev-
enue.
"We're like most other gov-
ernment agencies," he said.
"Not all of the money we


receive gets spent right away,
so we invest it and collect
interest. I've only heard posi-
tive things from our member
counties over the last several
months."
Last spring, the Sarasota
County Commission received
a preliminary report about
the navigation district that
made two things clear: 1) The
Florida Legislature would
have to approve a withdrawal;
and 2) Sarasota Countywould
have to give up any assets the
agency holds.
The desire to pull out of a
regional agency that adminis-


ters local dredging projects is
at least partially attributable
to the fact that the county has
assembled a fledgling Nav-
igable Waterways Mainten-
ance Management Program
that will do the same types of
projects.
Only one neighborhood
has gone through the coun-
ty's two-stage petition proc-
ess to prepare for a dredging
project, but others are waiting
in the wings. When, and if, the
projects finally get under way,
the county commission may
be in a better position to
make a long-term decision.

Myrtle Street project to benefit

area residents and school
Work is scheduled to begin in late March on a major roadway construction
project that will make it easier for residents of Newtown Estates to access their
homes, and safer for students to attend Booker Middle School.
On Feb. 8, the Board of County Commissioners awarded a $3.4 million
contract to Woodruff and Sons Inc. to construct a new four-lane segment of road
'that ill connect U.S. 301 to Myrtle Streedat.Lernard' Reid Avenue, and widen
the existing roadway from Leonard Reid to Carmichael Avenue. It will also
construct a two-lane divided road from Carmichael to the existing road at Booker
Middle School, providing an additional access,
Roadway lights will be built along the entire length of Myrtle Street from U.S.
301 to Tuttle, and new solar powered school flashers and signs will be Installed
at the school crossing. Signals at U.S. 301 and Myrtle Street will also be
upgraded.
New sidewalks will be Installed on both sides of Myrtle Street along with turn
lanes into the school and Newtown Estates. The pedestrian bridge that currently
connects Newtown Estates to Myrtle Street will be replaced by a two-lane road
connection to King Boulevard, giving residents two ways in and out of the cul-
de-sac development.
Workers also plan to pipe the ditch running along Myrtle behind Newtown
Estates and create a shallow swale to alleviate the dumping that has plagued the
area.
The project is being funded by infrastructure surtax continuation funds, City of
Sarasota impact fees and the telecommunications tax. It is expected to be
completed by the end of the year.
For more information, contact Sarasota County Public Works at (941) 861-
0876.

County residents engage in comp planning


A meeting in Englewood is the latest session in
the process of amending the document that dic-
tates the pace and terms of growth countywide.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


As Sarasota County plan-
ners engage in an almost
year-long process to amend
the comprehensive plan, they
held their first public work-
shop in Englewood Thursday
night.
About 25 residents came
to the Englewood Sports
Complex to learn more
about, and offer the planners
their, thoughts and com-
ments, on the topic of rede-
velopment and infill.
"It was a good mix with
some people who had inter-


nal concerns as well as devel-
opment interests," said Brian
Beatty, a senior county plan-
ner. "There was a lot of infor-
mation exchanged and the
residents were asking inquisi-
tive questions."
Arising out of last year's
state-mandated Evaluation
and'Appraisal Report on the
comprehensive plan, staff is
now conducting the work-
shops on issues and topics
identified by staff and the
public that needed review
since the last evaluation in
1997.
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 idea behind the
review is to respond to
changing trends and condi-
tions in the community, as
well as changing state and
regional growth manage-
ment policies.
The process results in
amendments that keep the
plan aligned with community
values and visions.
Redevelopment and infill
- an issue critical in both
South and North County- is
one of those issues.


Assembling the tool kit
Redevelopment is the
process of taking an existing
property and renovating or
replacing the structures or
use of the property. Infill is the
companion process of taking
vacant land in an urban area
and developing it.
"We're looking at the rede-
velopment puzzle and what
some of the existing tools are
to get at refill and redevelop-
ment opportunities," said
Beatty. "What we're soliciting
from the public is what are
the other pieces we need so
we can put together the tool
kit."
"There's a lot of good infor-
mation and it looks like
they're making it more entic-
ing for developers," said Paul
Schouten, an Englewood real


estate broker. "It just im-
proves the opportunities for
developers."
Englewood resident
Shirley Zink, 'who has long
objected to developer Ron
Johnson's proposed mixed-
use development on Artists
Avenue, saw redevelopment
in a different light.
"It belongs in the middle of
town, not in a residential
neighborhood," Zink said.

Charlotte Harbor focus of summit


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


It's one of the more pristine
rivers in Southwest Florida,
but it is also one of the most
misunderstood.
And now, under pressure
as a future water supply
-source for a growing region,
the scientists, planners and
managers who deal daily with
the Myakka River will meet in
a day-long session to discuss
issues related to the river.
Monday's session is part of
a four-day Charlotte Harbor
Watershed Summit to discuss
review progress and discuss
current and emerging issues
with Charlotte Harbor.
Hosted by the Charlotte
Harbor National Estuary
Program, the summit is a
chance to bring the scientists
and other stakeholders
together with the public to
discuss the critical issues fae-
ing Charlotte Harbor.
"It's an opportunity for
those in direct contact to
share their most recent find-
ings and interact with people
in other disciplines and
with the public," said Maran
Brainard Hilgendorf,


CHNEP's communications
manager.
Hilgendorf said the group
decided to include a day-long
focus on the Myakka River in
response to concerns of the
Myakka River Coordinating's
Council about the river serv-
ing as public water supply
source.
"People are dealing with a
lot of old understandings,"
said Jono Miller, director of
the Environmental Studies
Program at New College of
Florida in Sarasota and chair-
man,of the MRCC. "We want
to bring the decision makers
up to speed so they're not
using a deck of cards based
on old information."
Wild and scenic
Miller said the last study of
the Myakka took place in
1978.
Since then, sawfish have
been seen in the river, .mana-
tees, inhabit the Little Salt
Spring and panthers have
been seen in Myakka State
Park.
"We need to understand
what's going on now so we
can make better decisions
about how to deal with it,"


Miller said.
From its headwaters in
southern Manatee County,
the Myakka River winds and
meanders for almost 60 miles
through three counties until it
terminates in Charlotte
Harbor near El Jobean. Due to
its pristine nature and scenic
qualities, the Florida
Legislature declared it a "Wild
and Scenic River" in 1985,
one of only two rivers in the
state with that designation.,
"The Myakka River is in the
best shape of any river in
Southwest Florida," Miller
said, "but there have been a
lot of hydrological changes
and we need to know what
development upstream has
done to the flows."
Information exchange


discuss land use changes
within the watershed, along
with hydrological, biological
and water quality issues. The
panel will conclude with a
discussion of watershed
management.
Miller said he didn't expect
to see recommendations
coming from the session, but
rather an exchange of infor-
mation.
Sessions on Tuesday
through Thursday will deal
with environmental issues,
and how monitoring data can
result in better management
for the Charlotte Harbor estu-
ary.
The watershed summit
will begin at 9 a.m. each day
and continue until late after

Laurel Road project

could bring in movies


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


"We're thinking of a whole
new urban-style, mixed-use
community," said Mike
Miller, president of the
Waterford Group of Com-
panies, announcing his plans
for the 73-acre property the
company has acquired on
Knights Trail Road, off Laurel
Road, east of Interstate 75.
Plans are being prepared
to create a new urban com-
munity in line with Sarasota
County's 2050 plan. It would
be a miied-use neighbor-
hood with a movie theater,
related retail stores and


restaurants. Workforce hous-
ing would be incorporated for
people employed at nearby
offices and plants.
Two movie companies have
expressed interest in being
part of this -development and
negotiations are continuing.
One company is Epic
Theaters of Deland, Fla.,
founded in 2003 by third gen-
eration exhibitors. It currently
operates 27 screens at four
sites in Florida and
Pennsylvania with proposals
to add 60 new stadium audi-
toriums at four sites over the
next four years.

WHAT TEETH ARE MADE OF
Our teeth are actually living structures which require a blood supply to
maintain them in health as part of our bodies. As we grow older, they
change in calcification, color, hardness, brittleness and shape.
Teeth consist of enamel, dentin, cementum, and pulp tissue. Enamel is
compare with dentin at 70. and cementum at 50o, enamel is almost
as hard as some semiprecious stones, and a cementum is about the
same hardness as normal bone. Dentin hardness is somewhere
between. Well-calcified enamel is translucent, usually yielding a light
yellow color, a reflection of the natural color of the underlying dentin.
White enamel is really quite uncommon. Even enamel that appears
very white has in fact some yellow in it. Although we all want very
white teeth this may be an impossible dream. There are some
conditions which just don't respond to whitening and bleaching
techniques as we would like.

Teachers earn national certification


Many of the newly certified instructors benefited
from mentoring by other faculty members who
had already completed the process.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
Seventeen Sarasota Coun-
ty teachers were recognized
last month for receiving
National Board Certification.
Twelve of the 17 National
Board Certified teachers are
working in South County:
Mark Pearcey, Venice High
School; Ed Coyne, Venice
Middle School; April Hess,
VMS; Laura Jordan, VMS;
Ruth Shaulis, VMS, Kate
Baber, Venice Elementary
School; Shawn Martin,
Student Leadership Acad-
emy; Amy. Swen, Taylor
Ranch Elementary; Martha
Koch, North Port High; and


three teachers from Pineview
- Sue Caldwell, Deborah
Delaney, and Martha
Magenheim received the
10-year teaching certificate
from the National Board for
Professional Teaching Stand-
ards.
Remaining Sarasota Coun-
ty teachers winning certifica-
tion are: Kim Derwitsch,
Fruitville Elementary; Jen-
nifer Stabenow, Booker High;.
Julie Selts, Booker Middle;
and Charles Evans and
Maryann Sturm, Riverview
High.
Certificate winner April
Hess applauded Venice
Middle School, with four
newly certified teachers, for


its excellent teaching staff,
calling VMS the best kept
secret in the county.
She attributed their suc-
cess in part to BarbaraWoody,
a teacher at Laurel Nokomis
who runs monthly South
County mentoring sessions.
Hess calls Woody the South
County guru of national certi-
fication.
"It was almost like private
tutoring," Hess said of the
sessions.
Each month Woody and
other mentors would explain
the NBPTS review process to
applicants, giving invaluable
tips on topics like how to pre-
sent videos and peer review of
written portions.
"It's not hard," said Shari
Ursel, chair of the promotion-
al relations committee of
NBPTS, "but it is very time
consuming since there is a


tremendous amount of writ-
ing and analysis of one's
teaching methods. I was
upset when I went through
the process because it was so
time consuming."
Ursel, one of the first
Florida teachers to receive
national certification, works
at Venice Elementary School.
She now mentors other South
County teachers seeking
national certification. It's one
of the bonuses of NBPTS cer-
tification.
Financial rewards
Winning NBPTS certifica-
tion makes a teacher eligible
for about $9,200 in annual
bonuses for the life of the 10-
year certificate, said Ursel.

County to purchase more portables


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

There's only one item listed
for new business at the
Sarasota County School
Board meeting on Tuesday -
the purchase of more porta-
bles. County administrators
are recommending the dis-
trict purchase more than $2
million worth of portable
classrooms from Suwanee
County Sclhool District.
The portables are headed
for schools throughout the
county.
The Suwanee County
School Board put out a re-
quest for proposals recently
to purchase 48 portable class-
rooms from Mobile Modular
Management Corporation.


Funds to purchase the
classrooms are contained in
the district's capital budget.
The portables are a short-
term answer to a growing
long-term problem how to-
address the'district's explod-
ing student population.
Venice High School alone
has 30 portables on its over-
crowded campus.
We're listening
Also on the agenda is the
approval of a new employee
suggestion program. In meet-
ings with employees, super-
intendent Gary Norris and
associate superintendent Bob
Earley discussed the merits of
implementing an employee
suggest in program. It won a
thumbs-up all around. The
administration is recom-


mending the board adopt a
policy guiding such a pro-
gram.
Other districts have them.
The policy is expected to be
adopted as authorized by
Florida statutes.
Policies, contracts
The board is expected to
approve new policies de-
signed to bring the district
into compliance with state
statutes. Up for adoption are
policies on seat belts, vehicle
maintenance program, trans-
portation liability and inspec-
tions.
The board will also amend
existing contracts with a
number of outside vendors,.
including a $190,190 increase
in the contract with MTX
Therapy Services for occupa-


tional, physical and speech
therapy services. The funds
are enough to bring into the
district two additional
speech/language patholo-
gists and a half-time occupa-
tional therapist.
New contracts up for
approval include an agree-
ment with Goodwill
Industries-Manasota Inc. to
provide vocational education
experience and paid employ-
ment to ESE students, and a
contract, for $19,960 with
BRPH Architects-Engineers
Inc. for the Landings office
space utilization study.
The Sarasota County
school board meeting on Feb.
15 begins at 6:30 p.m. at The
Landings.

Harris gets coveted post


She'll be the only Florida representative on t
committee that oversees the Department of
Homeland Security.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


It's an appointment Rep.
Katherine Harris, R-Longboat
(ey, has coveted and quietly
campaigned for since last
November.
This week, Harris learned
that she would be one of the
18 Republicans appointed by
the House leadership to the
permanent House Homeland
Security Committee.
House Majority Leader
Dennis Hastert made the
announcement of Harris'
appointment to the commit-
tee in Washington. Harris is
the only representative from
Florida named to the com-
mittee.
The committee along
with its Senate counterpart -


is the legislative and ov
committee for the D
ment of Homeland S
and has primary jurist
over government-wide
terterrorism
policy.
Harris said
she intended
to focus her r -A
committee
work on port
security and
border securi-
ty Port
Manatee in HARRIS
Manatee
County is within her d
- and preparedness
response.
"We must find the d
balance between safe
ing our seaports, infra
ture and coastlines w


he hampering the free flow of
trade and tourists," Harris
said in a press release.
She also expressed interest
in exploring strategies to cut
ersight off the flow of funds to under-
)epart- write terrorist activities, an
security issue she pursued as a mem-
diction ber of the Financial Services
coun- Subcommittee on Domestic
International Monetary Pol-
icy and the Terrorist
Financing Task Force.
"Through our focus upon
terrorist financing, we can
not only strangle the funding
sources of future terrorist
acts, but also can initiate
innovative investigations into
the money-laundering, as
well as illegal operations
through which these organi-
district zations move their illicit prof-
s and its," Harris said.
delicate Goals
guard- Harris represents the 13th
astruc- Congressional District, which
without includes all of Sarasota,


DeSoto, Manatee and Hardee
counties, and a portion of
Charlotte County through
Englewood including the
Cape Haze peninsula.
In accepting the appoint-
ment to the Homeland
Security post, Harris will
relinquish her membership
on the Government Reform
Committee. She will retain
her membership on the
International Relations Com-
mittee and the Financial
Services Committee because
of the importance of interna-
tional trade to Florida.
"If we are going to contin-
ue to raise the living stan-
dards of Floridians, then we
must continue to grow our
economy, protect our infra-
structure and natural re-
sources, and ensure that both
. residents and visitors feel
safe," Harris said.

REEFS from page 1A


for washing more than 40 feet
of beach into the ,Gulf of
vlexico, and this 3.2-miles of
shoreline hasn't been replen-
ished in a decade. There is an
agreement between the city
and the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers to restock the
beach every 10 years because
the South Jetty inlet, built by
the federal government and
the Army Corps, increases
beach erosion. ,
Total cost for the project is
$17.2 million, and the city's
share is $2.9 million. Building
7.3 acres of reefs is over and.
above that amount, with
limestone being much more
expensive.
Black does not have an
estimate on the reef cost. And
even though the city's cost
will be reimbursed, Black said
using excess concrete from
demolition projects makes
economic and environmental


sense.
Instead of that material
eating up landfill space, it
could become a habitat for
native vegetation and wildlife
in the Gulf of Mexico.
"We'll have up to six
months after the renourish-
ment is complete to work
through what kinds of (reef)
materials are required (by the
DEP),". Black said.
Jacqueline Keiser, the pro-
ject manager with the Army
Corps, could not be reached
for comment,
Project details
The Army Corps is expect-
ed to award the construction
bid Feb. 21 for restocking of
the beach. The project should
be finished by Aug. 9, despite
running into sea turtle nest-
ing season, Black said.
An additional 160-130 feet
of beach will added once the


project is finished. Sand is
being dredged from five dif-
ferent spots nearly 8 miles off-
shore of Siesta and Casey
keys.
The exact locations of the
three artificial reefs will not be
known until the renourish-
ment project is finished. The
permit then gives the city six
months to build the reefs, fol-
lowed by monitoring over the
next five years to make sure
the reefs do not drift.
Most of the money, about
$14.2 million, is from the fed-
eral government, and it's a
good thing Venice was award-
ed the funding last year. The
president's latest budget
nearly eliminates all beach
funding, and he tried to
remove money last year
before lobbyists and four hur-
ricanes helped get the money
reinstated. '
Of thie federal money


about $4 million is a direct
result of hurricane-relief aid
and the rest is funding the
restoration that was originally
promised almost two years
ago.
Other nearby projects like
Lido Beach, for example, were
not funded in President,
Bush's proposed budget.
"When the federal beach
nourishment is fully funded
by Congress, as we expect it
will be, its total cost will be the
equivalent of just two inter-
state highway' interchanges,"
said Harry Simmons, presi-
dent of the American Shore
and Beach Preservation
Association. "Americans
should be appalled that the
European Union annually
spends 10 times what the U.S.
spends to repair its erosion."

HEIGHT from page lA


The 1:30 p.m. meeting will
decide if commission mem-
bers want staff to formally
proposed the needed zoning
and ordinance changes for
approval.
No exceptions
No future building would
be allowed to exceed 35 feet
along West Venice Avenue
between the beach and
Armada Road. The northern
boundary of this zone would
be Barcelona Avenue, and the
southern boundary Granada
Avenue.
There would be no special
exception process for taller
buildings in this area if the
new zoning proposal passes.
Slaughter's report blames
excessive height that's out of
character with residential
neighborhoods on -zoning
codes established in the
1970s to encourage economic
growth with little thought
about managing the type or
quality of growth.
"With each successive
boom in the city's real estate
economy, developers use the
opportunities enabled in the
1978 zoning ordinance to
build taller and bigger build-
ings," Slaughter states.
"Zoning reforms including
building height limitations
are desired to rebalance the
zoning regulation and devel-
opment intent."
This area has been of inter-
est to City Manager Marty
Black, who pointed out in
September that existing zon-
ing would allow someone to
build up to 80 feet along this
portion of West Venice
Avenue. A request for height-
specific regions within the
city also came out of a joint
city council-planning com-
mission workshop in June.
This is the first direct result of
that directive.
So far, no developers have
swooped in looking to build a
new towering condominium
in this district, but Black said
then it's only a matter of time,
without new zoning.
"We're out to create a com-
munity we all want to live in,
our kids to, ,live in and our,


grandkids to live in," Black
said in September.
Terminology change
Parts of the city that would
allow buildings more than 35
feet tall would no longer
require "special exceptions,"
according to the second part
of Slaughter's presentation
Tuesday. These would be
called "conditional use" re-
quests, and the final decision
whether to grant them would
rest with city council.
Current ordinances give
the planning commission the
final say, unless someone
pays $300 to appeal the deci-
sion to city council. The most
recent and so far only exam-
ple of this involves a building,
at 215-217 W. Venice'Ave.
where Herb Levine, who paid
the fee, and other citizens are
challenging a four-story that
was granted a special excep-
tion.
Beyond the height issue
itself, Sue Lang of the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition
takes exception to planning
commission having the final
say and all the hoops required
for an appeal to council.
Nearly every other planning
commission judgment is a
recommendation with final
judgment at the city council
level.
Height rules are too impor-
tant not to require council
approval, Lang said.
"When you make big deci-
sions like special exceptions,
these are not minor things,"
Lang said Feb. 2. "This is a big
change. There is a bigger
problem here in terms of the
powers deciding this."
This very concern also was
raised idea at June's meeting
between council and plan-
ning commission. Not only
the process of approval, but
the terminology behind spe-
cial exceptions.
Going with the "condition-
al use" definition forces a"
developer to show how the
additional height enhances
the city, according to the.
report.

Latest condominium project up for approval


San Lino would be 132 units on 20 acres at the
southeastern corner of Auburn Road and East
Venice Avenue.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


One month after being
granted denser zoning, Mike
Miller has site plans for 132
condominiums on what was,
known as the Kunze Property.
The Venice Planning Com-
mission will review plans for
what will be called San Lino
Condominiums at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday in city hall. The 11,
three-story buildings will be
on 20 acres at the southeast-
ern comer of Auburn Road
and East Venice Avenue.
Rezoning stipulations are
that the development will not
exceed seven living units per
acre and will be built using
Venetian Gateway District
architectural standards.
Density is at 6.6 units per acre.
The site plan replicates a
traditional neighborhood.lay-
out, according to the city staff


report. There will be walk-
ways throughout the com-
munity, four passive parks, a
playground area, gazebos, a
clubhouse and a pool.
Stormwater retention
ponds, which are required,
will include fountains as an
added attraction, and there
will be additional buffering.
New beach park
Planning commission sup-
port for the park that will
replace the former Island
Wastewater Treatment Plant,
tentatively named Tramonto
Vista Park, also is on Tues-
day's agenda.
The 7 acres of land was
bought by the city in 2004
from Venice Municipal Air-
port for $213,661, according
to the staff report. Total park
area will be 19 acres once the
airport's reclaimed water
storage pond is included.


The park's main compo-
nents will be three 60-foot
diameter picnic pavilions,
two bathrooms, new board-
walk along beach and a con-
nection to Brohard Paw Park.
Staff is calling this a passive
park, even though some in
the community question
whether it will truly be "pas-
sive." The concept plan has
100 paved parking spots and
an area capable of hosting
small concerts.
City ordinances require
any park change or new con-
struction to have a concept
plan first approved by the
planning commission and
the parks and recreation advi-
sory board. The parks board
meeting will be at 3 p.m.
Monday.
Once both boards give
their approval, the concept
plan goes before city council.
A majority vote there allows
for actual site development to
begin.

If the concept plan is approved, the three water plant tanks pictured above at the former Island
Wastewater Treatment Plant will be removed and replaced with 60-foot wide picnic shelters.

something that will benefit
the community. And it gives
students a chance to be pro-
ductive in the community."
"The more kids interact
with adults, the more they see
how they fit into society." '
"It has even given other
teachers a renewed interest in
teaching. I didn't expect the
small learning community
concept to start so success-
fully with such a bang,"
Millington said.
'The real thing'
Bentley Bird, a 17 year-old
senior atVHS is one of the stu-
dents taking part in red tide
research. President of the
Zoology and Marine Biology
clubs,
Bird comes to the science
lab weekly to count cells, pre-
pare nutrient solutions, han-
dle cultures, and make obser-
vations.
I She backs up Millington's
observations.
"It's such a huge issue now.
The students who come every
week to count are interested
in the research. It's not just
something they have to do.
They want to be involved,"
Bird said.
Bird is one of six young
adults, mostly from the
Marine Biology Club, who
volunteers to work on the
project after school.
"I feel like we are doing
something important. This is
the real thing," she said.
Bird was accepted at
Eckerd College, a private
institution in St. Petersburg
with a strong marine biology
department, in the Fall. She is
already in communication
with college officials to con-
tinue her involvement in red
tide research at Eckerd.
Most of the student re-
search was conducted after
school hours, but the next
level of research will involve
more students in regular
classes, Powell said. It's easier
to do in class, and easier for
kids to observe and be-
involved in the project, he
said.
"It's neat to see more kids
get interested," said Rigby.
"They want to know why we
are doing it, and what the for-
mula will do. They're showing
real interest."

Howell sixth

at state

weightlifting

STAFF REPORT

Venice junior Taylor Howell
set personal bests in the clean
and jerk (130 pounds) and
total weight (245 pounds) to
finish sixth in the 110-pound
class at Saturday's Florida
High School Athletic Asso-
ciation state girls weightlifting
meet at DeLand High School.
"I wasn't expecting this,"
said Howell, who benched
115 pounds. "Every meet this
season, I kept trying for per-
sonal bests and it worked."
Coach Nancy Tessier was
pleased with Howell's perfor-
mance, which was 55 pounds
behind champion Jaycie
Kargas of team champion
Spruce Creek.
"Taylor's a real athlete,"
Tessier said. "I don't ever
worry about her. She knows
what she has to do, she gets
up there and does it."
Senior Courtney Osborne
was eighth in the 154-pound
class with a 280 total (145
bench, 135 clean and jerk),
senior Shelbi Johnson (139)
finished 10th with a 270 total
(130 bench, 140 clean and
jerk) and sophomore Rachael
Hinkle (183) was 21st for the
Indians with 255 pounds (145
bench, 110 clean and jerk).
"I'm proud of all of them,"
Tessier added.
Orthopedic to play
tough Sarasota team
The Suncoast Orthopedic
team swept two games from
the Bonefish Grill of Brad-
enton by scores of 11-8 and
10-4 in the Sarasota/Mana-
tee County Senior Softball
League.
Manager Larry Monroe is
very pleased with his two out-
standing rookies Ronny
Anderson and Johnny Mello.
Anderson's five hits included
two triples and a homer.
Mellow Mello had three dou-
bles, a triple and a long
homer.
The medicine men were
trailing 6-5 in the first game
when, with two outs in the
fifth inning, RBI doubles by
Mello, Bill Brotherton and
Richard Marks iced the vic-
tory.
Herman Zornes pitched
ouf of two James with key
strikeouts in preserving the
win. Zornes is seeking his
fourth "Cy Young Award" as
the league's best pitcher.
Suncoast Orthopedic's rec-
ord is 12-0. This Wednesday
morning will see a big game
as the medicine hats play the
Advanced Sports Medicine
team from Sarasota, whose
record is 11-1.

Indian wrestlers rule district tournament


Venice has six individual champions and
will be sending a whopping 13 matmen


to next weekend's region

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It wasn't a perfect day for
Venice High wrestling, but
damn close to it.
Powered by six individual
champions, the Indians
chopped up the field in Class
2A District 11 Saturday, win-
ning the team title handiJy.
Host Venice totaled 222
team points to easily outdis-
tance runnerup Manatee,
which had 161 points. There
were eight schools participat-
ing.
Venice took 14 wrestlers to
the mats Saturday. Thirteen of
them placed at least fourth at
their weight to advance to
next Friday and Saturday's
region meet at Charlotte
High.
"We wrestled really well,"
said Dan Kelly, coach of the
sixth-ranked team in the
state. "'We have room for im-
provement, but next week is
another week. We advance 13
wrestlers. That's pretty good."
The other seven schools
at district would agree.
Grabbing individual titles
for Venice were Cory
Rittenhouse at 103 pounds,
Matt Rossheim at 119, Keith


Koziel at 130, Randy Re at 160,
Zach Gaudreau at 171 and
* Jeremie Cook at 189.
There could have been
even more gold for the Green
and White, but three Indians
lost very close bouts.
At 135 pounds, sophomore
Trevor Goodin, who entered
the tourney with a sub-.500
record, came up just short
of upending Daniel Betz of
Manatee. Betz won 7-6, but
Goodin came within a
whisker of pinning him in
the second period. In his
first bout of .the day, Goodin
upset top-seeded Brandon
Leonard of Charlotte.

Boys hoopsters lose their final regular season game in OT


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The North Port High boys
basketball team got a big effort
from center Kyle Rowland
and made clutch free throws
in overtime in a 56-53 victory
in front of a noisy crowd at
Venice Friday night.
North Port (16-9) took both
non-district games from Ven-
ice (12-13) this season.
It was the final regular sea-
son for both with district play
beginning this coming week.
Rowland finished with 31
points and canned five 3-
pointers.
The second meeting was


intense, and about as close as a
game could get. The lead
swung back and forth in a
wild second half.
The Bobcats appeared to
have the game wrapped up in
regulation after Rowland sank
two free throws with five sec-
onds remaining, making the
score 48-45. But Venice re-
serve forward Billy Mehserle
canned a 3-point heave at the
buzzer to send the game into
overtime.
From there it was basically
a case of North Port making its
free throws in OT and Venice
missing.
The Bobcats converted 6-
of-9 from the charity stripe in


the extra session. The Indians
were just 1-for-6.
On the game, Venice was a
woeful 12-for-27 at the free
throw line.
Rowland was a one-man
wrecking crew in the third
quarter, scoring 13 of North
Port's 15 points in the quarter,
giving the Bobcats a 31-30
lead heading into the fourth
quarter.
Venice ,suffered a huge
blow in the third quarter when
center, leading rebounder and
rejector Dexter Jackson went
out with a broken bone in his
right foot.
The Indians battled on with
big man Ilya Vasilevskiy com-


ing off the bench for six sec-
ond half points before foul-
ing out.
Venice was led by guard
George Stritz, who had 16
points. He canned four treys.
Venice trailed 55-53 with
20 seconds left in overtime,
but Mehserle missed a forced
shot and Andy Deller made it
56-53 with a free throw with
nine seconds left. Venice could
never get off a shot to tie it.
Venice got a fine defensive
effort from junior forward
Kalen Lyons, who scored
seven points on the other end.
Steve Stasko, one of two
Indian seniors honored before
the game, finished with eight


points. The other senior on the
team, Zach Bossart, started
and played the first five min-
utes.
Point guard Ariel Bonilla
had seven points but was
guilty of numerous turnovers
down the stretch.
Venice will play host to the
Class 5A .District 11 Tourn-
ament. The 'third-seeded
Indians will play second-seed
Lakewood Ranch in a semifi-
nal 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Action begins at 7 p.m.
Tuesday with the out-bracket
game between Charlotte and ,
Manatee. The winner of that
game will play at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday against top-seed


Port Charlotte in the other
semifinal. The championship
game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Saturday.

Its almost scramble season


Good morning all.
First off, a quick report on
the Outback Steakhouse Pro
Am Media day. It was Tues-
day, Feb. 8, at the TPC of
Tampa Bay and what an event
it was. I had the pleasure of
playing with Dave Reynolds,
who is a sports reporter and
sometime anchor at News
Channel 8 in Tampa, and two
other lost souls whose games
shall remain anonymous.
We shot 66, good enough
to eat lunch with our heads
up, but not good enough to
beat the defending champ
Mark McNulty and his band
of thieves. Dave was a heck of
a nice guy and he could rip it.
During McNulty's comments,
he opened the floor to ques-
tions and I told Dave I would
give him $5 to ask him, "box-
ers or briefs." Reynolds said it
would take at least three fig-
ures so I guess we will never
know.
Now onto our main topic
for today, it is almost scram-
ble season. You know, that

If I were to give one big
piece of advice to all the non-
profit organizations and fund
raisers out there, here it is -
police your tournaments.
Encourage your players to
pay attention to what is going
on around them and if they
see something odd, report it
to the rules committee (usu-
ally the pro at the course).
.I know golf is supposed to
be a gentleman's game, but
the only way to make that
work is to be men and stand
up when you see something
wrong. And one more thing,
please do not sell mulligans.
Sure they bring in some extra
$$ for the tournament orga-
nizers, but I have personally
seen some of the most horrif-
ic abuses of the honor system
that you can imagine. Have a
putting contest or better yet,
just charge an extra $5 a

A proposed amendment to

proposed amendment and


ballot language, about 50,000
signatures are required up

On Tuesday, Nov. 2, while
voters all over the country
were at the polls, Burnaman
was appearing before the
court on behalf of Florida
Hometown Democracy, the
grass roots citizens' group
that wants to dramatically
change how new growth is
managed.
The power to decide
where new residential sub-

are built currently rests with
county and city govern-

LEGAL NOTICES .'..


bonus, $4,600, from the Dale
Hickam Excellent Teaching
Fund, an endowment estab-
lished by the Legislature to
fund the program.
The bonus pay is equal to
10 percent of the average
teacher salary in Florida.
The other half of the bonus
is paid to NBPTS teachers
who go on to mentor fellow
teachers seeking certification.
It requires another 96 hours
of mentoring, Ursel said.
An application fee of
$2,000 is reimbursed by the
state, but only if the teacher
completes the review process.
That doesn't mean he or she
has to pass the test, only that
the entire review process has
been completed. The state
also reimburses teachers $200
for materials.
The Sarasota County
School District does not pro-
vide a direct monetary incen-
tive for certification, but it
does provide 120 in-service
points for successfully pass-
ing. Teachers must earn 360
points every five years for
recertification.
The process to become
nationally certified can take
anywhere from 10 months to
three years. Florida had the
second, most newly certified
teachers in 2004 with 1472,
bested by North Carolina at
1675. The total number of
Florida teachers and school
counselors certified by
NBPTS now stands at 6,365.


Critics
The program's success
means it is expensive, adding
millions of dollars to the state
budget. When the program's
cost to states became clear,
many policymakers respond-
ed by seeking proof that earn-
ing certification made teach-
ers better. Some wanted to
know if certification was sim-
ply a recognition of good
teachers, something easily
identified, or if it helped those
applying actually become
better teachers,
NBPTS contracted for a
series of external reviews, The
three-year review process will
include more than a dozen
research studies examining
the impact of the the board
certification process, includ-
ing its effect on students' aca-
demic performance, accord-
ing to NBPTS.
Research by The CNA
Corporation in November
found students of NBPTS-,
certified teachers did a mea-
surably better job than other
ninth- and 10th-graders on
year-end math tests in
Miami-Dade County Public
Schools. All else being equal,
teachers who had achieved
national board certification
helped their students achieve:
larger testing gains than did
colleagues without the certifi-
cation, reports NBPTS.

Water authority looking for expansion direction


More meetings are scheduled for the
near future so members can hash out how
the necessary expansion of the Peace River


facility will be paid for.
BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

As it starts to become a
regional water entity, the
Peace River/Manasota Re-
gional Water Supply Authority
is defining its role by the seat
of its pants with little specific
direction from its member
governments.
During a recent workshop,
the four authority members
and their county administra-
tors sat down to discuss a
variety of issues associated
with a planned expansion of
the authority's facility on the
Peace River and a new, more
active regional role in water
issues.
The two are intertwined, as
authority attorney Doug
Manson struggles to develop
water supply
contracts be- #'
tween the
authority and

Sarasota and
DeSoto coun- ,.
ties and the
city of North
Port for con-.
sideration at Ley.
the board's
March 2 meeting.
Not only must the author-
ity board approve the con-
tracts which will determine
how much water each entity
will receive from the expan-
sion but each member
government and North Port
must approve them. Manson
hopes to have the contracts
executed by the beginning of
April so the authority's attor-
ney on bond issues can begin
working to have financing in
place by early June.
'I'm trying to craft the con-
tracts to allow as much flexi-
bility as possible," Manson
said. "They will lock in the
allocations so we can proceed
with bonding while the gover-
nance issues are left open."
Expansion and rates
The workshop followed a
meeting of the Water Plan-
ning Alliance an umbrella
group of all four counties, the
municipalities and the Engle-
wood Water District the
previous week. During that
meeting, alliance members
agreed that the authority
should begin discussions
about its future role, the finan-
cial aspects and the roles and
relationships between the
local governments and utili-
ties, the Water Planning
Alliance and the authority.
Based on the meeting,
county administrators will
convene on Feb. 18 to discuss
a variety of issues, including
the thorny topics of doing the
Peace River expansion in one
phase, a common water rate
for all members and options
on sales of water between
members.
"The expansion needs to be
our number one priority," said
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Pat Glass, after her
county administrator, Ernie
Padgett, proposed doing the
expansion in one phase.
"This will benefit all four
members as well as North
Port."
Fractionalization
Sarasota County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley said there had
been no discussion among the
administrators about combin-
ing the two-phase expansion
into one phase, and the issue


would need further study to
understand the financial
ramifications.


Charlotte County Admin-
istrator Bruce Loucks raised
the idea of a blended or com-
mon rate.
Saying Charlotte County
could get hit hardest by
,blended rates, Loucks said
going to this method would
"solve the fractionalization


caused by all these side agree-
ments (to sell water between
members)."
"If we get to. a blended rate,
most of these other issues
will go away," Loucks said.
John Zimmerman, a Man-,
atee County government offi-
cial, said the authority could


use blended rates for the
expansion with no refinanc-
ing of the existing bonds. If
that course were followed,
Zimmerman said, Charlotte
.would not get hurt.
After the county adminis-
trators discuss the laundry list
of issues on Feb. 18, the water


authority board will meet-
again in another workshop
on Feb. 25 to discuss progress
and provide further direction
on the contracts and gover-
nance and finance issues.

OUR VIEW



School board shows vision by planning for city's growth


New or enlarged schools are a must in an
area that is experiencing spectacular
growth.
Luckily, the Sarasota County School Board
recognizes that more and more people are
moving to North Port and bringing school-
age children with them.
Not until several years after the building
and population booms are over will the city
ever get ahead of the game. It might as well
accept that as a given. Until the expansion
slows down dramatically, it won't have
enough schools and its current schools
won't be big enough.
Schools can't be built overnight, unfortu-
nately. That's why North Port's children are
going to portable classrooms, instead of the


new schools that they need.
Of course, one of the problems with the
expansion is that the district doesn't want
to be caught a dozen years from now with
too many schools and not enough children.
The bigger issue, however, is now -
keeping up with the current develop-
ment.
In the next two years, North Port High
School will add 36 new classrooms in two
new wings. The expansion will cost tax-
payers, through the school board, $14 mil-
lion.
Principal George Kenney said there are
1,800 students at the high school this year,
but there could be 2,150 next school year.
He said four new students are being signed


up every week.
The two new wings will replace port-
ables. What to do with the portables?
They'll go across the street to Heron Creek
Middle School, where it is estimated that
-40 portables will be needed this fall. Heron
Creek opened two years ago with 1,500 stu-
dents and now has 1,700 enrolled.
We know that the school population will
keep going up, up and up. Another middle
school will be built in two years. There will be
no problem filling a second high school,
when it is built in the east end of North Port
in 2009 or 2010. By 2011-2012, with contin-
ued 15 percent more homes a year, there will
be an estimated 3,000 students, Ken Marsh,
long-range planning director for Sarasota


County schools, told the board at its meeting
Feb. 1.
At the elementary age-level, construction
will begin on a fourth school next year. With
the first spade still to be turned on that
building, the school board is already making
plans to buy 100 lots at the intersection of
Huntsville and Atwater roads to have a fifth
elementary school ready for 2009. Those
two will be added to the current Toledo
Blade, Glenallen and Cranberry schools.
Cranberry, in its second year,.already is using
portables.
That's a lot of growth and several new
schools. It's good that the board is showing
vision by recognizing the need now, not a few
years from now.


New words


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

In putting out the equiva-
lent of a novel every two days,
we make some mistakes. On
top of that, once in a while
we invent a word, not neces-
sarily on purpose.
I also like to invent words.
For instance, Women's Ser-
toma is having its annual
--Quiz- Night in the afternoon.,
When asked when it was
being held, I said it was in the
"afternight," figuring I'd be
half right.
When I play golf and my
ball seems to be gently drift-
ing into the woods on my
drive, I call that "driftation."
If there is something I think
is really good and don't want
to use tired words like "great"
or "fabulous," I use "fantab-
ulous."
The Washington Post
asked readers to give new
meanings to existing words
or make up words derived
from current words. Here are
some of their suggestions:
Coffee: a person who is
coughed on.
Flabbergasted: being ap-
palled at how much weight
you have gained.
Abdicate: give up all
hope of ever having a flat
stomach (I can relate to this).
Esplanade: to attempt an
explanation while drunk.
Willy-nilly: impotent.
Negligent: describes a
condition in which you ans-
wer the door in your night-
gown.
Lymph: to walk with a
lisp.
Gargoyle: an olive-
flavored mouthwash.
Flatulence: the emer-
gency vehicle that picks you
up when you have been run
over by a steamroller.
Balderdash: a rapidly
receding hairline
Rectitude: the formal,
dignified demeanor assumed
by a proctologist immedi-
ately before he examines you.
Oyster: a person who
sprinkles his conversation
with Yiddish expressions.
Frisbeetarianism: the
belief that when you die your
soul goes up on the roof and
gets stuck there.
Hipatitus: terminal cool-
ness.
Giraffiti: vandalism spray
painted very, very high.
Decafalon: the grueling
event of getting through the
day consuming only things
that are good for you.
Bozone: the substance
surrounding stupid people
that stops bright ideas from
penetrating.
Circumvent: the opening


in the front of boxer shorts.
Glibido: all talk and no
action.
Inoculatte: to take coffee
intravenously when you are
running late.
Cashtration: the act of
buying a house, which ren-
ders the subject financially
impotent for an indefinite
period (which is happening
around here a lot).
I am sure you have some
you have made up. Pass them
on.

By's Crack: Do you
realize that we have a
generation of people now
who think margarine is
the real thing?

,The "scenic overlooks" on
the Venice Avenue Bridge are
almost done. This might go
down as the boondoggle of
the year: $100,000 for passing
areas that will likely never get
used.

:Don't forget 'the third'
Thursday stroll downtown.
Lots of entertainment and,
things to nibble .on.

There is a great deal of
enthusiasm for the new hos-
pital and all, HMA might be
doing. There is hope it will
find a way to bring back the
obstetrics and psychiatric
units. Maybe there will be a
way to couple with its pro-
grams in Charlotte. Keep
your fingers crossed.

Today's Ismi (a blooper
from a church bulletin): "For
those of you that have chil-
dren and don't know it, we
have a nursery downstairs."

A longtime friend of Ven-
ice and past president of the
chamber of commerce, Kevin
Hicks, celebrated his 50th
birthday this week in
Roanoke, N.C.

The United Way ther-
mometers are up in town and
at Bay Indies and the cam-
paign is really coming along.
We are now at more than
$440,000. We are really mak-
ing an impact on 24 great

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Why spend money on parks you can't walk to?


Editor:
I live on South Armada Road and I see no side'
street.
I have heard there is a sidewalk program and
many officials to learn about it, but their favorite si

sidewalks. 2. There is no money for sidewalks. 3. I
pensive for sidewalks. 4. Call the county; we are n
ible for that street.,
A city that will spend millions on parks and be
ities and not build sidewalks for its citizens to w-
me a travesty. Instead of calling Venice a city, we sI
its status to village or subdivision, or call it all pr
erty because to let the owners decide for or ag
walks insinuates the streets are private.
I would rather see a vigorous program to builc
on a continuous basis so the island has sidewalks
and encourage its citizens to take a walk to all t
tiful parks and beaches.
Money can come by eliminating the duplication
cars that respond to every incidental call. It seE
may have too big a police force to respond to too f
least this is my observation). Alternatively, lo(

No need for more
things at the beach
Editor:
A response to Donald L.
Henry:
1. Venice already has a
,beach-cleaning machine to
rhake the sand more inviting.
You must get there early in the
morning to see it, before it is
littered up again with trash.
2. If you want to see a
boardwalk lined with eateries,
and T-shirt shops, just move
to Atlantic City and you can
already have all of that. My
thoughts about what you pro-,
pose are that most people
who live in Venice want the

Editor:
The battle for the reform
of Social Security is causing
great consternation among
Democrats.
When Bill Clinton sug-
.gested it in 1999,, some
Democrats were all for it,
including the leader in the
Senate, who is now adamant-
ly opposed. I think they real:
ized Clinton was all bravado
and had no intention of actu-
ally pursuing his rhetoric.
Now they are up against
President, Bush and' they
know he is going for broke
on this issue. Deathly afraid
he will succeed, they are
using scare tactics in fright-
ening the elderly.
The president has said he
is willing to listen to all ideas,
the process will be "open and
candid," and any change
must be "wise and effective."
He has ruled out tax in-
creases.
To do nothing would be
unconscionable, given that
the system will be unable to
sustain people drawing pay-
ments 40 years hence. The full
faith and credit of the United
States Government will then
be on the line, and a default in'
payments would severely
hurt people.
The president is advancing
the concept of an "ownership
society" much as Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher
did in Great Britain. By letting
younger workers invest a por-
tion of their Social Security
taxes in bonds and other
financial instruments, con-
tributors would have a nest
egg on which to retire, rather
than just a check each month

Even parks need friends sometimes


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

"It's astonishing how un-
aware residents of Sarasota
County are of our wonderful
parks," exclaimed Ann Van
Cott, who heads a new chari-
table foundation dedicated to
preserving the 135 major and
pocket parks here.
"It's equally astonishing
that our county has so many
really beautiful parks. We are
blessed," she added.
Agreed. It is a blessing, but
the sheer number over-
whelms the county parks and
recreation system.
"The problem is national,"
she said. "It costs more money
to keep parks clean and pro-
vide security than our budgets
permit.
"To do the job adequately,"
she added, "we need to recruit
people to complement staff,
and contribute money to pay
for upkeep."
Raising awareness
Woodmere Park in South
Venice is a case in point. The
residents who use that park
wanted to start a friends
group to oversee activities.
With the assistance of Friends
of Sarasota County Parks, Van
Cott's group, they have up-
graded security, cleaned up the
grounds and made it easier to
get into the park including the
area for dogs, Paws Park
FOSCP has spent its ener-
gies to date advocating for
quality services and facilities
in parks; raising money on its
own and in partnerships with
like- minded community org-
anizations; and publicizing
the county park system.
Environmentally sensitive
housing and land develop-
ment will be highlighted in an
exposition of "green-oriented"
organizations in May at the
Van Wezel Performing Arts
Center in Sarasota. The event,
which will be co-sponsored
by FOSCP is expected to draw,

"It's another way we can
promote awareness about the
county parks," Van Cott said.
Evolution
Her association with the
organization was a natural
evolution from her participa-
tion in the county Environ-
mentally Sensitive Lands pro-
gram. The nine-person over-
sight committee has worked
since 1999 to make certain
that development does not
go unchecked.
The program was started
that year, when county voters
supported a property tax of
25 cents per $1,000 of the
taxable value of a home to
raise $5 million a year for 20
years. Voters also approved
loans of up to $53 million to
buy land identified as most
in need of protection.
"For years county parks
and recreation has received
calls from people who want a
tree or a bench placed in a
park," recalled Van Cott. "A
bench costs as much as $500.
A tree at least $1,000. Some-
times the budget can't handle
such requests. But a founda-
tion like ours can step in and
help."

is working with users of
Shamrock Park and Nature
Center, also in Venice, to
form an association.
Her organization's mission
is to coordinate efforts to
maintain the parks as part-
ners with groups of residents.
"We received a phone call
from a Siesta Key resident,
who said, 'The restrooms at
Glebe Park are awful. They
should be replaced. If you'll
tell me what it costs to get
top-of-the-line facilities in
there, I'll underwrite them,' "
Van Cott said. "We can work
with parks and recreation on
matters like that."
A resident of the area for 30
years, she has been involved
in conservation since arriv-
ing. Her first effort, with hus-
band Bill, was patrolling
Casey Key beaches to protect
sea turtles.
That effort caught the at-
tention of Historic Spanish
Point in Osprey, which asked
her to join the board of direc-
tors. She served for 10 years,
during which time she was
president.
That stint led, in turn, to
being asked to serve on the
oversight committee of the
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands program.

Building a foundation for conservation


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Perhaps the newest of the
1,300 land trusts in the United
States that protect nearly 10
million acres of undeveloped
land, the Sarasota Conser-
vation Foundation is probably
the fastest-growing.
In its first year of opera-
tion, the foundation received
$1,212,800 in grants; created
the Venice Island Gateway
Park in partnership with ,Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice and the city of
Venice; and established itself
as a leader in Sarasota County
and along the Gulf Coast in
land conservation.
Only 412 vacant gulf or
bayfront acres were left in the
county, by a recent count. The
foundation hopes to gain
donations of land, or buy
property that will allow it to
save the remaining public
access to area bays, beaches
and barrier islands.
"We want to create an
emerald necklace of public
access spots along the water-
front," said Albert G. Joerger,
founder and president of the
foundation. "We try to work as
partners with local, govern-
ments and other groups to do
this."
Land trust
The first such effort will be


the creation of a park on what
is now an empty lot, but was
once the location of commer-
cial establishments at Tampa
Avenue and U.S. 41 Business,
next to the Venice Little
Theatre building. The 12,000-
square-foot area was pur-
chased by the foundation with
a $413,000 grant from Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice.
The two foundations and
the city together will connect
the park to downtown Venice
with the Venetian Waterway
Park, a walking and bicycling
trail that runs along the
Intracoastal Waterway. The
purchase converted the lot
into a land trust.
Moving aggressively
Joerger and two staff mem-
bers working from the foun-
dation's offices on Blackburn
Point Road in Osprey raised
the $1.2 million-plus in gifts,
pledges,, grants and in-kind
contributions in the past 14
months. A membership cam-
paign is also planned, seeking
like-minded residents who
support land conservation.
Whatever success the foun-
dation achieves, according to
Joerger, will depend on tax
breaks the organization can
work out for people willing to
sell their, land. Much will be.
accomplished by the founda-
tion's ability to move aggres-


sively and swiftly to acquire
land.
Venice City Manager Marty
Black concurred with this ap-
proach last August, when the
Venice City Council agreed to
the park development part-
nership.
"The lot is an eyesore," he
observed. "For a long time
we've wanted to improve it." :
Although funds had been
available, the decision process
for government takes longer
than for the conservation
foundation. The city's role in
the improvement of the land
will be focused on upgrading
the land.
Overlooked
Joerger and his board of
directors have identified sev-
eral potential acquisitions in
the county, which he declined
to name.
"We don't want to alert
our competition," he said.,
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton, a founda-
tion director, thinks the foun-
dation fills a void in the non-
profit community by focus-
ing on waterfront lands.
"They're pretty much over-
looked because of their high
prices," he said. "People think,
it's just impossible to buy
them. This organization will
prove that is wrong by involv-
ing itself in land transactions,
and management."

Sweeping drug investigation skirts Venice


Venice, Nokomis, and Laurel are right along the I-
75 corridor from Naples to Brandon. Did the drug
smugglers stop, or pass us by for the more lucra-
tive markets of Tampa, Bradenton and Brandon?


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Local law enforcement was
not involved in the investiga-
tion, but local residents in
Venice, Nokomis and Laurel
could benefit from fewer
drugs in the area.
The flow of marijuana and
cocaine smuggled from
Mexico to southwest Florida,
off-loaded at a Lee County
ranch and distributed from
Naples to Brandon along the
Interstate 75 corridor, has
been stanched.
Local police said some of
those drugs "probably" found
their way to dealers in
Sarasota County..
The multi-agency (eight
agencies) investigation result-
ed in the arrest, conviction
and sentencing Thursday of
four men who ran the long-


term operation.
Thus, according to a news
release from United States
Attorney Paul L. Perez, ended
the reign of the notorious
Garcia drug cartel.
One of the ringleaders
lived in Port Charlotte, anoth-
er near Fort Myers.
Gang of four
According to the release,
Ernesto Garcia, 43, of
Brownsville, Texas; Miguel
Garcia, 39, of Port Charlotte; and
Jesus Garcia, 33, of Lehigh Acres
(east of Fort Myers) were sen-
tenced to long federal prison
terms. Ringleaders Emesto and
Miguel each got 328 months
(27.3 years), Jesus got 262
months (21.8 years), and Juan
Reyes, 36, also of Port Charlotte,
got 137 months (11.4 years).

The Earned Income Tax
Credit is a refundable federal
income tax credit for low-
income working individuals
and families. Congress origi-
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
and file a tax return, even if
they did riot earn enough
money to be obligated to file a
tax return.

in Punta Gorda, where com-
munities this size completely
sold out very quickly," Boff
said. "It's a very open, very liv-
able floor plan that appeals to
a wide variety of homebuyers
in buildings designed so that
each of the spacious carriage
homes is an end unit."
Quail Creek Village, located
in north Naples near Interstate
75, is a lushly landscaped,
gated community of only 325
homes designed, around the
popular par 69 golf course.
"We're a very friendly com-
munity where people know
their neighbors and look for-
ward to seeing friends at our
Friday night dinner buffet,"
notes Alan Raulerson, manag-
er of the Quail Creek Village
Foundation.
"The size of the QuailVillage
course allows players.to enjoy
a game without a major com-
mitment of time," Raulerson
adds, "and the limited mem-
bership means that it's easily
accessible at any time. We
don't have 1,200 members try-
ing to play every morning," he
said. "We have some avid play-
ers but we also have a lot of
players who are out there for
the fun and exercise."
The community also offers a
full calendar of social events
ranging from monthly cocktail
parties and bridge clubs to
mah jongg and the Red Hat
Society.
For more information on The
Meadows at Quail Creek Vil-
lage, call Georgia Vaughn at
(239) 394-9107.

Happy

Valentine's

Day

C.J. Fishman saw green
when his daughter Kati
phoned to say she was going
to the Super Bowl. Not only
was she going, but would be
sitting. around the 50-yard
line behind the Patriot's
bench and attending some of
the pre and post parties with
her old friend, Brian Flaherty.
While in college, Brian in-
terned with the Patriot's, and
after graduation stayed with
the organization. Kati gradu-
ated from college and now
lives in Jacksonville and is in
marketing with Stein Mart.
Both Venice High School
graduates enjoy their long
friendship. While at Venice
High, Kati was the incredible
setter on one of the great vol-
leyball teams. In addition to
being a super athlete, Kati has
a smile that lights up a stadi-
um and a personality to
match.
While C.J. is a little envious
of the Super Bowl ticket, he is
proud of his Kati. C.J. and his
wife, Wendy both deserve a
pat on the back for raising
such a nice daughter.
Laurel 0' Connors has- a
new addition to her family.
Michael Angelo, a gorgeous
Maine coon cat joins golden
retrievers Huckleberry and
Senora as part of the O'Con-
nors clan.
Laurel first saw Maine
coon cats on a trip to Maine
several years ago and had get-
ting one on her wish list ever
since. The 6-month-old Mi-
chael Angelo will be known as
Mike.
There are no bones about
it. Venice Mayor Dean Cala-
maras is an expert paleontol-
ogist. He teamed up with
some first-grade students
from Venice Elementary
School and teacher, Shari
Valencic-Ursel. to do some
hands-on learning.

Is it love or just a stage





they re going through?


STORY BY KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR

Several happy couples tied the knot after
meeting on stage or backstage at the Venice
Little Theatre.


Love is dramatic at the,
Venice Little Theatre,
Cupid's arrow has pierced
the hearts of several VLT vol-
unteers, some on stage and.
some backstage.
"Sweethearts onr stage and
off are a frequent event in the-
ater," \enice Little Theatre
spokesman Maureen Holland
said. ... Folks meet back-
stage and then go on to marry
in real life."
James and Christine Grif-
fith met at the VLT. So did
Chris and Patricia Caswell,
Steve and Heather O'Dea,
Brian and Sharon Rudolph,
Jim Lovett and Patty Avery
and Ronda Sudik and her
partner Will Schultz. Jean and
Tom Trammel's lives meshed
at the \lT and so did the lives
of Allan and Joyce Kietsch-
mar.
Sudik and Schultz met
while she was stage managing
"Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde" at the
VLT during the 2002-2003
season.
", Will was doing 'Little
Shop of Horrors' at the Sara-
sota Players," Sudik said. "El-
lie St. Ariand and Steve Cre-
deur are mutual friends. They
had picked us out as a ccaple
even before we met."
St. Armand and Credeur
brought Schultz to the VLT to
see Sudik in "The Taffetas"
and then he came to see St.
Armand in "The Miracle
Worker," which Sudik was.
stage managing. That sum-
mer, Sudik and Schultz ended
up working together in a cou-
ple of the VLT's Theatre in a
Blender series and they start-
ed dating. Heading toward
their second anniversary as a
couple, the two have a son,
Logan, 9 months, and live in
North Port. Schultz is a stay-
at-home dad:and Sudik works
for the Senior Information
Center, an organization that
helps seniors with financial
planning. Still involved in the
theater, they take turns doing
shows so that one of them is
always home with Logan.


Sudik will be the dressing
room supervisor for "Fiddler
on the Roof," which opens
Tuesday, Feb. 15. on the VLT's
NlainStage, where it will play
through March 13. Schultz
was in "West Side Story" earli-
er this season at The Players.
Actors Steve and Heather
O'Dea met at the \lT's annu-
al volunteerr party in 1999.
"We weren't going to go but
friends talked us into it," he
said. "I was just back from a
trade show and I was sick but
I had said I would help inuo-
duce the next season's shows.
Ron Nlyroup. Steve Wilder
and I were announcing the
new shows."
Heather had just finished
doing "Cosi," directed by Dan
Higgs, and Steve had just fin-
ished doing "Gifts" earlier that
year.
"We met about 10 minutes
into the party and have been
inseparable since then," he
said.
They have not worked to-
gether since "Lend Me A Ten-
or" on \LT's MainStage about
three years ago. They also....
were in VLT's MlainStage pro-
duction of "Noises Off" to-
gether.
It was only fitting that he*,
would propose at the theater.
"Ron Myroup was in 'Com-
municating Doors' and we
went to see it together," Steve.
said. "That was my excuse so I
could propose to her'at the
theater.
"I asked her to marry me
on the steps in the middle of
the lobby and she tearfully
said 'yes.' There used to be
steps in the middle of the
lobby. Not anymore."
Work demands have kept
them off the stage recently. He
is associated with LexJet,. a
Sarasota conipany that man-
ufactures printable materials
for professional digital pho-
tographers and sign shops
and she is a planning assis-
tant for American Express
Financial Planners in Port
Charlotte. They live in Noko-

"Oklahoma" brought a

We started dating while we
were in the show. We have
been married, 20 years in
October, have three kids and
two businesses."
The couple owns die lames
Griffith Salons in Venice and
in Boca Grande. They live in
Englewood. Chrisine's moth-
er is Geri Becker, one of the
founding members of the the-
ater and one of the people for
whom the VLT's balcony was
named a few years ago.
"The music from 'Okla-
homa' kind of follows us
wherever we go," he said.
"When we were on our hon-
eymoon, the local theater was
doing 'Oklahoma' and one
night we went to the movie
and they were playing the
soundtrack of 'Oklahoma' in
the lobby.
"When we are walking
through Disney World, the
music will be 'Oklahoma. "

Volunteer blood

donors having blood

types of 0- and A-

needed immediately


Supplies of O- and A- blood
types have fallen critically low.
Blood supplies must be re-
plenished immediately to
avert any shortages at local
hospitals. Due to higher us-
ages at local medical facilities
and lower than expected do-
nor participation, the critical
appeal for volunteer blood
donors issued last week has
been reissued and will remain
in effect until supplies are
replenished.
To donate blood, you must
be in good health, weigh a
minimum of 110 pounds, and
be 17 years of age or older.
There is no upper age limit
for donors meeting all other
eligibility requirements. As a
benefit to the donor, a mini-
health check, which includes


evaluations of blood pressure,
iron level and cholesterol, is
performed to help the donor
maintain his or her good
health.
' The entire procedure, from
completing a short
medical history to drawing
blood and resting afterward
with refreshments, takes
about 30-45 minutes.
Donate blood today at
your nearest location:
2065 South Tamiami Trail,
Galleria Plaza, in Venice
(492-9202) or
2670 South McCall Road,
Unit 9, Heron Plaza in Engle-
wood (460-0698) or on the

Handling office stress is hard work


STAFF REPORT


It's important that dealing
with work-related stress does
not become a full-time job.
That's one conclusion of a
recent study that found stress
is becoming a prominent fix-
ture in the American work-
place, with only half of work-
ers able to deal effectively
with it.
The study revealed that
workers now take up to two
weeks of sick time a year to
deal with stress-related .illness
and that many use over-the-
counter analgesics in an effort
to remedy their stress-related
sickness.
The study, conducted by
the Hadassah women's orga-
nization, in partnership with
Aetna and the United States
Tennis Association, polled ap-
proximately 1,000 people at
companies across the North-
east. It was created by stress
expert and author Dr.


Deborah Bright, who served
as co-investigator with Dr.
Mark Popachin, a prominent
gastroenterologist at New
York-Presbyterian Hospital's
Well Cornell Medical Center.
One in three respondents
said they are "highly stressed"
at work, with nearly four in 10
reporting that they have
more stress at work today
than two years ago. Only 50
percent rated themselves as
"very effective" in handling this
stress. As a result, 32 percent
admitted missing anywhere
from one to 14 days of work in
2004 due to stress- related ill-
ness and just about one-quar-
ter (24 percent) disclosed tak-
ing anywhere from one to five
aspirin or acetaminophen
tablets daily because of stress-
related complaints.
According to the study,
there are numerous factors
contributing to on-the-job
stress. Fifty-five percent of
respondents cited their fore-


most stressor as being given
more tasks and responsibili-
ties than time to do them.
Forty-three percent cited be-
ing on the receiving end of
criticism as the second great-
est source of stress, while hav-
ing to give criticism rated as
the eighth highest stress-pro-
ducing situation (36 percent).
'Americans are experienc-
ing higher levels of stress than
ever before," said June Walker,
Hadassah's National President
and a health care professional.
"The challenge of balancing
work, family, and finances in
an increasingly more com-
petitive, demanding world is
definitely taking its toll."
"Stress has become a
health concern for people
both in the .workplace and
home setting," said Dr. Popa-
chin. "It cannot be eliminated
from our' lives. Our study
assesses which coping strate-
gies are being utilized by those
who successfully manage,


their stress. From these find-
ings, we hope to identify
practical methods for all of
us to minimize the negative
effects of stress in our lives."
Building "to do" lists seem-
ed to be the most effective
way respondents managed
workplace stress, while smok-
ing was the least effective.
Unfortunately, most people
said their work-related stress
doesn't leave them when they
leave work. Fifty-five percent
said they frequently think
about work while at home,
and 20 percent said they have
difficulty sleeping at night due
to stress-related problems
from work.
Also, people may want to
be careful about just how
quickly they climb the corpo-
rate ladder. If you are a man-
ager between the ages of 25
and 44, chances are you are
among those who are least
-effective at handling everyday
work-related stress.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING











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

Q. I recently heard about a
new hearing aid which uses
"Bluetooth" technology.
What are its advantages?
A. Today's hearing aids are
experiencing a "wireless
revolution" just like other
technologies. We already have
electronic devices that connect
us to our world such as
wireless telephones and
wireless internet. Advanced
wireless hearing aids provide
the possibility of linking these
various, wireless devices
directly to the hearing aid
user's ear. Wireless systems
use radio waves to send and
receive signals. This
technology brings the speaker's
voice directly to the listener's
ear, even over large distances.
This eliminates interference
from room reverberation and
background noise resulting in
clear and comfortable
communication. Wireless
hearing aids are equipped with
their own FM receivers which
can pick up a transmitted FM
signal. Ideal applications for
this technology would be
churches, lecture halls, theaters
and movie houses. To see if
your hearing aid can be fit with
an FM receiver, call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327.

Oscar Scherer



State Park has



new features


You, me and a manatee


Welcome to the first guest
column for Oscar Scherer
State Park. We would like to
invite everyone to come out
to the park and spend some
time here and see what's new.
There are so many things to
do and it's a wonderful envi-
ronment for a family outing. If
you camp, picnic, canoe, fish,
enjoy nature, or just want to
spend a few peaceful mo-
ments soaking up the atmos-
phere, Oscar Scherer. State
Park is the place for you. In
this column, we will discover
some of the secrets of the
scrub, describe some im-
provements to our programs
and facilities, and divulge
what is planned for the future
of the park.
If you haven't been to
Oscar Scherer in a while, you
might be surprised at all the
changes that have taken
place. Over the past few years
many things have been add-
ed, such as a Nature Center,
hiking trails, and improve-
ments to our campground
and picnic areas. In the Na-
ture Center are displays, dio-
ramas and hands-on exhibits
that explain the background
behind the park's habitat's
and their plight. Six hiking
trails have been marked and
provide more than 17 miles of
adventure. You can also spend
time on the Lester Finley Bar-
rier Free Nature Trail where
wheelchair-wide paths flow
right along side beautiful
South Creek. There's even an
accessible fishing dock con-
structed and it's a great place
for snook, snapper and many
other species waiting for the
lucky fisherman. Even bird
watchers can use this perch
over die creek for observing
ospreys, wading birds and
many others.
One of the key players in all
of these efforts is the Friends
of Oscar Scherer Park, Inc. A
citizens support group that
has dedicated its time to the
park for more than 10 years,
providing labor, funds and
ideas, all intended to make
the park even better. You will
hear a lot about our Friends
and may want to become a
Friend of the Park, too. Com-

ments, suggestions and, of
course, volunteer participa-
tion are always welcome.
I am fortunate to have
been the assistant park man-
ager for more than 17 years,
with almost 30 years of expe-
rience in the Florida Park
Service before becoming the
new park manager. When I
was selected, I had envi-
sioned many goals for im-
provements to the park such
as an active resource manage-
ment program of the natural
communities. The scrubby
flatwoods here have been
described as the crown jewel
in the county's scrub jay habi-
tat conservation plan; we will
be able to revive areas, while
maintaining others.
Treatments such as pre-
scribed burning, roller chop-
ping, thinning of pine stands
are all intended to improve
the health of the habitats. In
some areas these treatments
will restore a healthy balance
to a troubled ecosystem.
Oscar Scherer State Park is a
healthy, world-renowned tour-
ist attraction providing a valu-
able economic base with our
visitors spending $2,972,736.00
a year. That in turn, provides
$208,091.54 in tax revenues
for the state and many thou-
sands of dollars to, the local
tax base through the bed tax.
All told, this park creates 59
jobs in the local community,
because we attract so many
people during this age of eco-
tourism, in a wonderful,
healthy, part of paradise.
We look forward to sharing,
our experiences,. history and
future with'the Venice area in
upcoming articles. The park is
open 365 days from 8 a.m.
until sundown and is located
at 1843 South Tamiami Trail in
Osprey. For more information

Park, call the park office at

It's important to get your flu shots


Dear Savvy Senior,
As a health care specialist
who works with the elderly, it's
that time of year again where
we remind folks to get their
annual flu shot. Yet many
seniors more men than
women still don't get one. A
flu shot is a great preventative
measure that may just save
their life or save them thou-
sands of dollars in hospitaliza-
tion and treatment. Can you
inform your readers about
influenza and the significance
of getting a flu shot?
Doctor Fluenza
Dear Doctor,
I sure can! The flu, which
is short for influenza, is an
infection, caused by viruses,
that affects your lungs. Not
only does the flu make you
feel awful with fever, chills,
body aches, cough, and,
sometimes, a sore throat or
runny nose, it can be very


dangerous, especially if
you're older.
Flu facts
The single best way to pre-
vent the flu is to get a flu shot
every fall. The flu shot is a
vaccine that contains three
influenza strains recom-
mended for that year. The
viruses in the flu shot are
inactive (meaning they are
dead) so you can't get the flu
from a flu shot. Here are
some other flu facts you
should know about:
Every year in the United
States, about 114,000 people
have to be hospitalized
because of the flu, and
around 36,000 people die
because of it, most of whom
are older than age 65.
A flu shot doesn't give you
a 100-percent guarantee that
you won't get the flu. But if
you do, you won't get as sick
as you would without it.
Flu vaccines should be
given every year because flu
viruses change all the time
and because antibody pro-
tection decreases over time.
The best time to get vacci-
nated is from October
through November.
Flu season in the United
States generally peaks
between late December and
early March.
Antiviral prescription


medications can also be used
to prevent the flu.
Healthy people younger
than age 50 can now choose
to take the flu vaccine as a
nasal spray mist, rather than
a shot in the arm.
Side effects
Side effects from the flu
shot are minor for most peo-
ple. Some soreness or
swelling may occur where
the shot was given. But
between 5 and 10 percent
experience mild side effects
like headaches, a low-grade
fever or achiness, which usu-
ally last for about a day after
the vaccination.
Flu shot alert
If you have had any of the
following problems, you
should not get a flu shot
before talking with your doc-
tor:
Had a severe reaction to a
flu shot in the past.
Ever had a severe allergic
reaction to eggs.
Have a history of Guillain-
Barrd syndrome (GBS).
W here to go
You can get a flu shot at
your doctor's office or a local
clinic. Medicare Part B pays
for flu vaccinations, but even

What is free and never wears out?


Have you had your hug
today? Have you had your vit-
amins today? I think one is as
important as the other. Yet
many of us have had far more
vitamins than hugs during
our lifetime.
My husband's parents, and
my parents, were very formal
people. His mother was called
"The Duchess." Not for any
royal lineage. It was simply


her formal behavior. His
father would sit in his easy
chair on a Saturday morning
dressed in a starched shirt
and tie. One would not con-
sider mussing his shirt with a
hug, nor did he. I later learned
that he wondered why no one
would hug him. He didn't
know how to take the lead,
and others were afraid to act
without his lead. Other men
and women worked long,
long hours and didn't have
time for hugs. So neither of
us grew up in a hugging fami-
ly. As a result, it wasn't natural
to make hugs a daily practice
with our children. We might
have done a little better than
our parents, but in retrospect
not as much better as we
would have liked. Some fami-
lies have always hugged, and
they are blessed. But too
many are like ours, and have


not.
Somewhere inside I was
like my husband's father and
always wanted hugs, but did-
n't know enough to give or to
ask. Then Rollin Warren came
into my life after my husband
died. He was a great hugger,
and I came to really appreci-
ate how easily a hug can turn
a blue day into a bright day. At
about the same time a new
daughter-in-law, Betsy, came
into my life. She brought with
her'a wonderful tradition of
group family hugs.
During the years many
friends and neighbors have
celebrated their golden wed-
ding anniversary. Living in
Venice has given us all that
experience. How many gen-
uine hugs among family
members accompany those

Grandparents as comets in


BY CHARLES D. HAYES
GUEST COLUMNIST


My grandparents were
born near the turn of the 20th
century. World War I and the
simultaneous flu pandemic
left many of their contempo-
raries with a profound sense
of disillusionment. Intellect-
uals of the period referred to
theirs as the Lost Generation.
In "A Farewell to Arms," Ern-
est Hemingway wrote about
the war as an experience in
which glory, sacrifice and
sacredness were just words
that had lost their meaning.
And yet, my grandfather,
himself a veteran of that war,-
was anything but lost. He and
my grandmother left me with
an intense appreciation for
maturity as an attribute of
adulthood. As a result, I feel a
profound sense of connec-
tion with the values of an era
that is gone forever.'
My grandfather was born
in Ohio in 1889; my grand-
mother in Tennessee in 1904.
They were Victorians, both in
character and in aspiration.
But to my granddaughter
born in 1994, they represent a
world so different from ours
of today that they might as
well have come from another
planet.
The times in which we live
contribute to shaping our val-
ues. In the 1950s, David Ries-
man's 'book "The Lonely
Crowd" identified a tectonic
shift in the nature of individ-
ual motivation. Riesman ob-
served that people of the cur-
rent generation were becom-
ing increasingly "other-direct-
ed." That is, they were acting


in response to the expecta-
tions of others, doing things
because of what other people
thought, as opposed to being
"inner-directed" and doing
things simply because they
were the right things to do.
The change was something
philosopher Soren Kierke-
gaard had predicted a century
before: loss of the individual
at the expense of mass-man.
My grandfather volun-
teered for service in World
War I so that his brother could
remain at home and work the
family farm. As a working
man with young children
during the Great Depression,
he sharpened his skill at
thriftiness and was frugal to a
fault for the rest of his life. He
lived by deeply held princi-
ples, and if you spent enough
time with him you could fig-
ure out what those were with-
out need of an explanation.
He and my grandmother ac-
cepted total responsibility for
themselves and their family.
Initiative was an inborn part
of their psychological make-
up. They didn't need to be lec-
tured about self-reliance; it
was a big part of who they
were. They tended their own
garden, canned their own
food, and supplemented their
mechanical needs with their
own ingenuity. My graddfa-
ther paid his bills on time and
in person. My grandmother
was an extraordinarily re-
sourceful homemaker and
made many of the family's
clothes. The two of them did
these things without any
regard, whatsoever, for what
others thought of their ac-
tions. Admittedly, their gener-


the night sky

ation committed its share of
blunders, and many people
suffered the ethnocentric
prejudices of previous and
subsequent generations, but
my grandparents embodied
an aspect of maturity that
continues to outshine our
present-day standards.
Today, on the surface at
least, my granddaughter's
generation seems to be con-
sumed by peer pressure. If
not dissuaded, she'll soon"
count among those who have
internalized "shopping mall
values" to such an extent that
they feel incomplete without
proper brand-name tags on
their clothing. The absence of
inner-directedness is fright-
ening. Comparing such val-
ues to those of my grandpar-
ents makes me, profoundly
nostalgic about the concept
of authenticity. I suspect this
is because one of the most
readily observable aspects of
inner-directedness is earnest-
ness. To me and my siblings,
they represented optimism,
steadfastness, stability and,
above all, sincerity. I believe
my granddaughter's genera-
tion possesses a similar ca-
pacity for sincerity. Yet I fear
that, if the peer pressure they
endure does not lessen, they
will be overtaken in the near
future by a deep-seated sense
of irony and a penchant for
cynicism.
Like a comet in the night
sky, a lasting inspiration from
one generation offers a dis-
tant, succeeding generation
something of genuine and
enduring value. It creates an

Alzheimer's concerns
Dear Savvy Senior,
I think it was 'the publicity
surrounding Ronald Reagan's
funeral not long ago, but my
mother is now convinced she
has Alzheimer's disease. This is
triggered by moments of for-
getfulness, such as not being


able to remember someone's
name. I tell her that kind of
thing is normal and that every-
one has those days.
I have suggested she go see
her doctor but she refuses. Any
advice? Senior Moments
Dear Moments,
Tell your mom that forget-
fulness isn't Alzheimer's any
more that a headache is a
brain tumor. If it was, we'd all
be in trouble.
One of the problems with
Alzheimer's is that there is no
single, surefire test that can
make an objective diagnosis
when the disease is in its
early stages. What doctors
look for is a pattern, as well
as what a person is forget-
ting.
So, if your mother forgets
where she put her car keys,
don't worry about it. But, if
she forgets what the keys are
used for, she may have a
more serious problem.
The warning signs
As we grow older, some
memory changes are normal,
but the symptoms of


If your mother forgets where she put her car keys,
don't worry about it. But, if she forgets what the
keys are used for, she may have a more serious
problem.


Alzheimer's disease are more
than simple memory lapses.
The Alzheimer's Association
has developed a checklist of
warning signs to help you
recognize potential prob-
lems. If you recognize any of
these signs in yourself or a
loved one, see a dQctor.
Warning signs include:
Memory loss. One of the
most common early signs of
dementia is forgetting
recently learned information.
While it's normal to forget
appointments, names, or
telephone numbers, people
with dementia will forget
things more often, and not
remember them later.
Difficulty performing
familiar tasks. People with
dementia often find it hard
to complete basic everyday
familiar tasks like using a
household appliance or par-


ticipating in a lifelong hobby.
Problems with language.
Everyone has trouble finding
the right word sometimes,
but a person with
Alzheimer's often forgets
simple words or substitutes
unusual words making their
speech hard to understand.
For example if a person with
Alzheimer's is unable to find
their toothbrush, they may
ask for "that thing for my'
mouth."
Disorientation to time
and place. It's normal to for-
get the day of the week or
where you're going. But peo-
ple with Alzhieimer's can
become lost on their own
street, forget how they got.
there, and not know how to
get back home.
Poor or decreased judg-
ment. No one has perfect
judgment all of the time.


Those with Alzheimer's may
dress without regard to the
weather, wearing several
shirts on a warm day or very
little clothing in cold weath-
er. They may also often show
poor judgment about money,
giving away large amounts to
telemarketers or paying for
products they don't need.
Problems with abstract
thinking. Balancing a check-
book can be challenging for
some. But a person with
Alzheimer's may forget what
the numbers represent and
what needs to be done with
them.
Misplacing things.
Anyone can temporarily mis-
place a wallet or key. A per-
son with Alzheimer's may put
things in unusual places: an
iron in the freezer or a wrist-
watch in the sugar bowl.
Changes in mood or
behavior. Everyone can
become sad or moody from
time-to-time. Someone with
Alzheimer's disease can show
rapid mood swings for no
apparent reason.
Changes in personality.


People's personalities ordi-
narily change a little with
age. But a person with
Alzheimer's can change a lot,
becoming extremely con-
fused, suspicious, fearful, or
dependent on a family mem-
ber.
Loss of initiative. It's nor-
mal to tire of household
chores or social obligations
at times. But a person with
Alzheimer's may become
very passive, sitting in front.

"Patricia fell in love with
Jesus. She was sitting by his
side and sang the song, 'By
My Side.' We were in a couple
of other shows together."
They also worked together
for a few years at the old

cafe was a New York-style
piano-bar cabaret theater.
Their group did three or four
shows a week, most put to-

Scott Keys, did the words and
music for the Venice Little

prised me at the fifth anniver-
sary party of Jim and Tamara
Ley (he is the county adminis-
trator). She picked up a guitar
and sang 'By My Side.'"
Patricia is the executive
director of the Sarasota Arts
Council, a job she has held at
least 17 years, Chris said.
Chris earned critical ac-
claim last year for his perfor-
mance as DaddyWarbucks in
"Annie" at The Players.
Joyce and Allan Kretsch-
mar did not meet at the VLT
but it is where they got to
know each other and fell in
love. They met in 2001 at The
Players where Allan was per-
forming in the "Mikado" with
Joyce's brother, Scott Vitale.
The following year they both
tried out for theVLT's produc-
tion of"Dr. Jeykll & Mr. Hyde,"
with Allan" winning the title
role.
"During two months of
rehearsals and one month of
the show, we got to know
each other very well," Joyce
said. "We were two of the old-
est in the cast. I am 35 and
Allan is 45 and we really


clicked and bonded."
They were both single at
the titne and had been for
years. Each had been married
years earlier and both their
marriages ended in less than
a year.
"I wasn't even going to go
out for the show," she said,
"but my family goaded me
into it."
The Kretschmars got mar-
ried in December 2003 after
dating for a year and a half.
They performed together on
their first anniversary, which
occurred on the third and
final night of the 2004 VLT
Christmas concert. They sang
"Mary, Did You Know." Cur-
rently, with Vitale, they have
formed a group called Tri-
umph, which will perform
April 22 at the Living Word
bookstore in Sarasota.
When the Kretschmars
were married, Sharon and
Brian Rudolph attended
them. The Rudolphs met in
1995 at The Players, started
dating two or three years later
and were married in the
Yvonne T. Pinkerton Theatre,
the home of VLT's Stage II
productions. Brian proposed
to Sharon during "Oliver."


Their son Carson, 2, has sat in
on some rehearsals there and
the couple plans to audition
for "Beauty and the Beast,"
which the VLT will produce
next season.
The Trammels have the
distinction of being the first
couple to enter the present
home of the VLT.
They had met the'previous
evening after being pen pals.
Jean had put a notice in The
Leatherneck, a Marine Corps
publication that she wanted
to exchanged letters with Ma-
rines. Tom, newly returned
from a stint in Vietnam, said
his was one of some "152 let-
ters written to her."
He had just moved to
Sarasota with his mother, a
court reporter, and was the
only one to write that he had
just returned from a top se-
cret mission to overthrow the
communist regime using a
secret: formula involving
musk ox.. Intrigued by the
convoluted', tale; Jean re-
sponded to Tom and to 11
others, enclosing her photo
with her letter.
On New Year's Eve, Tom
called her and drove down to
Venice where he asked Jean to


go out to dinner with him.
She refused, saying that she
didn't want to go to a restau-
rant because it would be filled
with smoke.
"I took that as a come-on
and said we. could go to a
drive-in then," he said.
To that she replied that she
was not about to go out with
someone she didn't know.
When he responded that he
would get a quart of ice cream
and they could sit 'on the
porch eating it, her mother
overheard the discussion and
invited Tom to dinner.
"I spent most of the eve-
ning talking to Dale Erhart
(Jean's father) about the stock
market," Tom said. "I asked
her if she could go out the
next day and she said she had
to check out the theater."
Erhart was the treasurer
and one of the people respon-
sible for convincing the VLT
board to purchase the former
Kentucky Military Institute
gymnasium and armory as
the second home of the com-
munity theater.
Tom said he would help
and the next morning the two
were the first two people to
enter the building after the


closing, which deeded the
property over to the VLT. It
was their second "date."
Two and one-half years lat-
er, the couple had'their wed-
ding reception in the space.
In the ensuing years, they
have raised four boys and re-
main active supporters of the
VLT. Jean has served as presi-
dent of the board and the
family's Erhart Foundation
has made significant dona-
tions to the theater's recent
renovations and expansion.
The VLT plans to honor the
couples who met in such a
dramatic way during the the-
ater's April 5-24 run of "I Do, I
Do." The show will be direct-
ed by Dan Higgs. At each per-
formance, one couple will be
recognized.,At press time for
this article, casting was not
yet complete so it is quite
possible that one of these
couples might appear in the
show. If you know of any.cou-
ples not included here, send
an e-mail to: maureenhol-
land@'\enicestage.com.

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


BY PEGGY ISPHORDING
GUEST WRITER


This is part three of a
three-part series.

Dawson City in winter time
has that wonderful feeling of a
small, very small community
where residents care not only
about each other but do
everything possible to make
sure that their February
guests are welcome and cared
for.
In addition to the stop at
Dawson City, there are two
other mandatory stay-overs,
one for an hour at Carmacks
and another for eight hqurs at
Angel Creek, Alaska. It is only
during these three stops that
mushers are allowed to talk
with anyone other than race
officials or veterinarians.
As we spent time talking to
mushers and asking them
about the race, we found
them to be amazing people.
They work with their teams
for years prior to entering the
race and often trade off one
dog for another as the train-
ing progresses. In order to
compete effectively, a musher
must know his dogs and how
they will perform. A good
musher knows his team's
capabilities as well as he
knows his own; some will say
that he must know his dogs
better than he knows himself.
The musher must reckon
with both financial hardship
and the challenge of training
in an unspeakably harsh envi-
ronment. The cost of compet-
ing in the race can exceed
$20,000; depending on how
much time he takes from his
"day" job. Dog booties alone
can cost several thousand
dollars, but are essential to
keep ice balls from forming
between the toes. There also
is the expense of transporting
food from home base to the
starting city, not to mention
the cost of acquiring the food
in the first place. Dog trucks
that provide separate sleeping
quarters for each animal are
not inexpensive to operate or
to maintain. Travel costs for
handlers must also be fac-
tored in. Expenses mount and
monetary rewards are not
large in the Yukon Quest. Of
the 31 mushers who began
the 2004 Quest, 11 scratched,
20 finished the race and the
top 15 came in in the money.
Hans Gatt, the winner, took
home a $30,000 purse. It was
his third win in as manyyears.
All of the mushers have
interesting stories to tell:

ished in fifth place with a
purse of $8,000 and has run in
every Quest ... that in itself is
an amazing feat. He set the
record for running the fastest
race back in 1995 with a time
of 10 days, 16 hours and 20
minutes and it has not been
broken. Hans Gatt, the 2004
winner finished in 10 days, 18
hours and 54 minutes. One of
the crowd's favorite racers is
John Schandelmeier from
Paxson, Alaska, who runs with
shelter dogs. John says that he
is committed to training
unwanted dogs, to have peo-
ple realize that they need just
put in time and effort to make
their animals the best they
can be. It is obvious that he
has a wonderful relationship
with his team. They work
beautifully together and you
can see the love and respect in
their eyes when John ap-
proaches. With his team of
shelter dogs, he finished sev-
enth, earning a purse of
$5,000, all of which goes to
caring for his dogs and rescu-
ing even more. Agate Fran-
czak who comes from Daw-
son City and was one of the
five female mushers to finish
the race, raised money by
producing "Calendar Girls of
Dawson City" and selling
them for $15 each.. Agate was
thrilled to have finished 17th
*because even though she was
not in the money, a neighbor
promised a bottle of Scotch if
she finished in the top 18.
Dave Dalton from Healy, was
the only musher to finish with
all 14 dogs. It is highly unusu-
al to finish with a full team.
Dalton not only finished with
all 14, he came in third for a
purse of $18,000 but he was
most proud of winning the
Vet's Choice Trophy.
The only racer whom we
contacted prior to the race
was a young man from Yel-
lowknkife; in Nunavut Pro-
vince (formerly a part of the
Northwest Territories). His
biography on the Quest Web
site was so interesting, we
decided to contact him and
offer token support. It was a
real treat to finally meet him
during the layover in Dawson
City. Marcel turned out to be
as nice and charming as he
appeared on the Web. In fact,
he lost half a day during the
race because he stopped to

Marcel Marin, a rookie musher from Yellowknife, Nunavut, on the Yukon River.


help one musher down a
mountain after she injured
herself in the descent and
then he escorted her to the
nearest checkpoint. For his
unselfishness, he was pre-
sented with the Challenge of
the North, Award. The award
is given to the musher who
best represents the true spirit
of the Great Northwest. Even'
with the loss of half a day, he
still finished 14th with nine
dogs and earned $1,800, just
enough to cover the cost of
his entrance fee. Marcel says
that in the 13 days of the race;
he probably slept 16 hours
and lost 22 pounds. We were
invited to join Marcel, his
mother, Dianne and wife
Rachel at the Finish Banquet.
I think that Roger and I were
as proud of him as was his
own family. Unfortunately, he
won't be running the race in
2005 but his brother Sam


Perrino, who ran the Idifarod
last year, will be one of the 22
mushers competing in this
year's Quest.
In conversations with
mushers, we found that they
all shared a common goal:
Finish the race with as many
dogs as possible and make
sure that the dogs are happy.
"We want to finish with
happy dogs," was their man-
tra.
Kelley Griffin from Wasilla,
said it best, "Mushers don't
win races, dogs do."
If you have never seen a
dog smile, you just need to
position yourself at the Yukon
Quest finish line and you will
see that every dog who comes
in is smiling ... and that's the
truth.
If you want to go
Keep in mind that it takes a
lot of planning but a trip to


the Yukon Quest is just about
the most fun that' a person
can have in the wintry north
in February. (As I write this,
the temperature is -26 de-
grees in Fairbanks and -17
degrees iniWhitehorse).
Air schedules need to be
built around Air North sched-
ules because they are the only
carrier that goes to Whitehorse;
flyaimorth.com is the Web site.
A trip like this is a very good
time to call your travel agent for,
expert guidance.
Both Fairbanks and White-
horse have a wide choice of
hotels. You can find them on
the Web or ask your travel
agent to check them out.
Many of Dawson City's hotels
close for the winter. I would
recommend the Aurora Inn at
aurorainn.ca. For car rentals,
we found competitive rates at
Norcan with offices in
Whitehorse and Dawson City.


Pack as many warm
clothes as possible but keep
in mind that Air North has
very strict luggage weight
restrictions.
The Yukon Quest has all
the information concerning
start and finish banquets and
can take your ticket orders. Its
Web site is invaluable in mak-
ing plans. Stephen Reynolds
is the manager and Sharon
Riordan, the administrative
assistant; they can be reached
at yukonquest.com or (867)
668-4711.
This year's race begins in
Whitehorse on Feb. 13. Teams
will begin crossing the finish
line about 10 days later.

Longtime Venice residents
Peggy and Roger Isphording
will return to Alaska for the
2005 race and while there
will catch the start of the
Iditarod.

Born to Read promotes literacy


Born to Read, a program
that promotes literacy and a
love of books and reading
with babies ages 0-3 years,
* has been awarded the Library
Services and Technology Act
grant. Research has shown
that during the first years of
child's life, brain develop-
ment is at its peak. Children
who are read to, and whose
parents and caregivers re-
spond to their indications of
interest in books and pic-
tures, have the greatest likeli-
hood of holding onto brain
pathways that will enable


them to excel later in life.
Born to Read encourages
this interaction between baby
and parents or caregivers by
providing books, audiotapes
and other means of positive
interactive behaviors to those
families who are unable to
provide themselves with
these basic learning tools.
Born to Read works in part-
nership with a number of
community agencies and
local health-care providers.

about the program, contact
Debi Swiderski, at 861-2506.

celebrations?
.Hugs never wear out, and
they can be replenished in a
second at no cost. Group
hugs cost the same as individ-
ual hugs.
Like dancing, they always
leave people smiling.
So why do we scrimp so
much on hugs during our life?
What are we saving them for?
Luckily our newer genera-
tions seem to be doing a lot
better at hugging. Hugging


among families and between
friends has clearly increased.
Modem renaissance men are
no longer afraid to hug sisters,
fathers and other family
members. Maybe it is genera-
tional. Maybe it is increased
awareness of health and hap-
piness. Whatever the reason it
is wonderful to see. There are
many reasons to save for our
future, but we shouldn't save
hugs. We can always get and
give more.
My fond memories of my
hugger were captured in a
poem about him:
'What's More'
I searched for a name to call


him...
This goofy guy I happen to
know;
He has a nice name, but he
needs a special one
A name that suits just him
alone.
I thought and I thought, but
none was right,
Until it was getting late one
night.
The idea came while remem-
bering a hug,
And I knew that I had a name
for this lug.
Of course! He's Milne's Wing-
nie-the-Pooh,
The happy huggable, lovable


bear

effervescent link from one
century to another an
oblique but thoughtful mes-
sage, from those the youth did
not know and will not re-
member, passed on to a rime
the elders will never see.
Each new generation
longs for what it grew up
without, and each genera-
tion in decline longs for
.something it once admired
but deems lost.
Ensuring that every gener-
ation is capable of projecting
vitality into future genera-
tions requires a willingness to
reevaluate one's own values
- it's the only way we can
squeeze the last drop of
meaning from our past expe-
rience.

Libraries' Steady Readers
program helps people
read to succeed


PHOTOS COURTESY OF SARASOTA
COUNTi COvERIlMENT


The Sarasota County Pub-
lic Library System is helping
hundreds of reluctant readers
read to succeed through a
program known as Steady
Readers. Financed by a $5,000
grant from the Kathleen K.
Catlin Fund of the Com-
munity Foundation of Sara-
sota County, the Steady
Readers program is designed
to help ESOL students (Eng-
lish for Speakers of Other
Languages) and people who
read reluctantly become
more comfortable with the,
joys of reading.
The Steady Readers pro-
gram allowed the library sys-
tem to purchase Steady Read-
ers editions, of 140 copies of
20 different titles of paper-
back books with correspond-
ing audiotapes. Steady Read-
ers books are available in all
Sarasota County Public Li-
braries.


The Steady Readers edi-
tions of popdlari dtles such as
Jack London's 'The Call of the
Wild" are recorded at a 10 to
15 percent slower speed. This
allows more time for word
recognition and utilizes the
preferred auditory learning
style of the target groups. The
titles are mainly at the upper
elementary and middle
school interest level, but there
are some classics for all ages.
An analysis of circulation fig-
ures shows that Steady Read-
ers are becoming increasingly
popular as word of their avail-
ability spreads.
A recent study by SCOPE
(Sarasota County Openly
Plans for Excellence) reveals
that languages other than
English are spoken in 10.5
percent of homes in Sarasota
County. Library patrons who
have checked out the materi-
als since the program began
in April 2004 include people
from Russia, China, Japan,
Korea, Ukraine and many
Spanish-speaking countries.
The largest circulation of
Steady Readers was recorded
at Selby Library, where almost
400 of the book/audiotape
setshavebeen checked out. A
patron at the North Port


Library reported doubling her
volume of reading, while a
Venice Library user said,
"Steady Readers make read-
ing fun."
A mother told one of the
youth librarians at Fruitville
Library that "my daughter
likes Steady Readers so much
that as soon as she's finished
reading and listening to one,
she returns it and immediate-
ly checks out another one."
The grant for the Steady
Readers program is being
administered by the Friends
of the Gulf Gate Library and


the library's senior librarian
for youth services, Marcia B.
McKinney. The public may
contact McKinney at 861-
1242 or any Sarasota
County Public Library for
more information about the
Steady Readers program.

Dear Len,
N, r I Several months ago
we moved from the
SIsland to our new
restaurant in
Jacaranda Plaza
i (opposite end to
i : KMart).
To start, business
was a little slow, so
we decided to use
the Venice Gondolier
'i^ ': i Sun to inform our
'U '} .^ :customers and friends
where we are located and
to advise everyone that we still
have the same great food and
drinks. We also have an outside
smoking area.
Our opening ads were an
immediate success. We are
delighted with the number of
customers that responded to our great offers. Our
advertising campaign is ongoing in the Gondolier
Sun. Our customers, old and new come back
repeatedly to enjoy our "Best Burgers" in
town, the Friday Night Fish Fry plus much ,
more. Our compliments and thanks to you


and staff for all the professional and
helpful service that is making our
restaurant so successful. We are also
taking advantage of your great new offer
advertising every Wednesday, with a 40%
discount on Friday and a FREE ad on
Sunday.
We are excited about our future and
advertising in your popular newspaper.
Thank You

Venice church hosts volunteers from Ohio


BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

If carpentry is a divine pro-
fession, then this group of
people is really doing blessed
work for hurricane victims.
Volunteers from the United
Methodist Chuch of Norwalk,
Ohio, are staying at the Venice
United Church of Christ while
they work in Fort Myers on
reburbishing low-income
housing to be used initially for
housing volunteer teams. The
hosting organization is the
Florida Conference of the
United Church of Christ. The
group of 16 is
from the Ohio District of
Volunteers in Mission, an
organization of the United
Methodist Church. They are
assisting Habitat for Human-
ity in the building.
This mission is a response
to the hundreds of skilled
workers that want to come to
Florida and help, but need a

place to stay while they are
here. Providing housing would
help out the rebuilding prob-
lem considerably.
Lee County purchased five
homes, donated materials and
provided a code manager for
the effort. This is not the first
time VUCC has hosted a team.
"This church is doing mis-
sion work just by doing this,"
team leader Darrel French
said.
French, 49, has 25 years
of construction experience
under his tool belt. His co-,
leader, WAsley Eddy Jr.; 57, is a
retired mechanical engineer.
Together the duo from Ohio
perform massive projects in
short periods of time with

Golf benefit for HSSC
The 13th annual Pat Lonsdale
Invitational Golf Tournament

Longboat Key Club and.bene-
fits the Humane Society of
Sarasota County Inc. The
event includes two parties
and, an 18-hole golf tourna-
ment. Festivities kick off

their combined expertise.
"This year, I had the calling
to go to Florida and help,"
Eddy said. "Darrel agreed."
There haven't been many
resources to help all of the
hurricane victims, so local
churches have to step in. So
far, VUCC is the only church
that has. Cots were provided
by Sarasota County Emerg-
ency Services and the local
YMCA has lent the group the
use of their showers.
It may not seem like every-
body's idea of a relaxing vaca-
tion, but the team is always
glad to help out because they
get together so well and they
are successful at what they do.
They remain in high spirits
despite having to commute
everyday to the site and shar-
ing close quarters in the
VUCC's choir room.
Paul Meyer, 35, is the
youngest of the group. He
works on electrical systems
and paints for the team. This
was his sixth mission.
"I really like being part of.
this group because of the
closeness we share." Meyer
said. "It's very rewarding."
Betty Deisher, 76, is the
oldest of the group. There is
an added bonus for her in this
mission because she was
once a resident of Venice 28
years ago. Her son attended
the Kentucky Military
Academy and her grand-
daughter lives here with her
family.
"I've been tagging along for
five or six trips now," she said.
"I help with the cleanup and
whatever else I can."
Elizabeth Scott, 48, said
she likes the sense of commu-

nity the team shares and the
chance to escape the long
winters up North.
"There's a willingness to
teach each other," she said.
"We get a break from the
weather. and we get to
recharge. It's hard work, but
it's fun."
The group pays their own
way to the chosen locations
and the only thing they really


need is a place to sleep and
some donations for dinner.
This trip is the most recent of
many the group has taken as.
a mission to help those in
need. The veteran group has
gone to locations like Hon-
duras to build housing for
unlucky people. Much like
those previous missions, after
hurricane'damage is repaired
the houses will be used for

low-income housing.
Nelson Hay, minister for
VUCC, hopes other church-
es will follow this example
and host a team. If all the
preparations are in place the
process is not hard to repli-
,cate.
"As far as I know this will be
only the second group since
Charlie that has actually
found housing, gotten the


government approvals and
made it to Florida to work,"
Nelson said. "I know that the
United Church of Christ and
the Methodists at the state
and national level are work-
ing hard to make this hap-
pen."
Donations can be made to
the VUCC at 620 Shamrock
Ave. or by contacting the
church at 493-6741.

Inmates certainly aren't out bask-
ing in the sun. They work with chain-
saws to cut through dense, tangled
trees and brush, then pull thick
branches from the creek's edge to be
chipped and

Not all
inmates are eligible
to participate in the
road gangs. Vick
noted there are
strick criteria for
whether inmates
are allowed into the
road gang program.
Although all
inmates sentenced
in the county are:
sentenced to work,
the inmates who
work in the road
gangs are nonvio-
lent felons.
In addition
to the storm ater
project, road gang
crews are used, by
Sarasota County to
assist in public
work projects in
niany general labor
roles.
Vick led sev-
eral crews of
inmates during the
aftermath of
Hurricane Charley.
A road gang crew
was sent to North
Port the day after
Charley passed
through to assist in
opening roads for-
emergency vehi-
cles. Inmates also
assisted in Fort


Ogden setting up tents
and tables for a make-
shift food bank.
The county's road
gang program is not to
be compared with the
prisoner chain gangs
made infamous in
many fictional works,
including the 1967 film
"Cool Hand Luke."
Chain gangs, in
which prisoners were
either shackled to each
S other or had their
ankles shackled
together, were in wide-
spread use throughout
the United States early in the 20th
century until they were banned in the
mid-1960s. However, in May 1995
Alabamai and Arizona reinstituted
chain gangs. That same year Florida
followed the lead of Alabama and
Arizona and began using chain gangs,
which were renamed "labor gangs."
Florida had stopped using chain
gangs in the 1940s.
Columbia County, in
North Central Florida, did B 4
reinstitte chain gangs on
Nov. 22, 1995. Then-
Columbia County Sheriff
Tramnel reportedly called
the chain gangs in
which inmates were tied
together with chains
attached to a leather strap
around each inmate's
waist a high-visibility
deterrent.
The Blackburn, Creek
project is a Sarasota
County Department of
Public Works project to
clear stormwater ditches
of overgrown trees and
shrubs that prevent the
flow of rainwater, causing
flooding. Road gangs of
inmates are in their third .
year participating in the .
project. The county has
more than 900 miles of
stormwater ditches.
The clearing of
Blackburn Creek, 'which
runs for about 6 miles
from the M Tyakka River to
Curry Creek, should be
completed in about
another year, according
to Kirk Bagley, manager of
drainage operations for
Sarasota County.
Bagley says there are
about 600 miles of
drainage creeks in
Sarasota County, 400
miles of which the county
is responsible to main-
tain.
