Riders and bus 'drivers are proud of public trans-

Almost daily one can find
Jean Vanore riding the V-,
Route, going from her condo
by Venice Beach to the gro-
cery store, her doctor's office:
or to visit friends.
The 74-year-old doesn't
drive and has relied on
Sarasota County Area Transit
buses since moving to Venice
from Philadelphia 11 years
ago.
She doesn't have to think


very long about the greatest
improvement to SCAT ser-
vices. The biggest and best
change has been SCAT-

service that allows riders

"It picks them up right
where they live and drops
them off there," Vanore said
while riding the regular \-
Route on Friday. "Every time'
you go out shopping you
wind up buying more than
you planned. You plan for a'
loaf, of bread and you come


back with tree bags."
Under evaluation
The future of this personal-
ized service is in doubt.
Venice island is the only
place in Sarasota County that
has, SCAT-About, and it was
only started because the
widening of U.S. 41 Business
and bridge replacement af-
fected regular bus service.
Extra money flowed in from.

Transportation and Gulf!
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice to create the
service.
But road construction is
done and all that additional:
money stopped last summer..
SCAT is absorbing all of the


additional cost, and trans-
portation officials are evalu-
ating whether to continue the
service, said county trans-
portation planner Sarah
Blanchard.
SCAT-About could turn out
to be a pilot program for per-
sonalized service throughout
the county, or officials could
decide it's too costly and
stealing riders away from reg-
ular, fixed routes on full-size
buses.
No announcements have
been made'on SCAT-About's

A family member of a man
allegedly abused sexually by
his high school swim coach
more than 20 years ago said
the victim's life is shattered.
"It left him a shell," the
family member said. "He (the
alleged abuser) took a young
man who was a gifted athlete
and ... while he didn't kill
him, he took his life and fu-
ture away."


James LaMorte Sr., 62, and
a 30-year Venice High School
teaching veteran and former
assistant athletic director, has
been accused by several for-
mer students of sexually mo-
lesting them in the late 1970s.
At least five alleged victims
have come forward, accord-

V-TRAIN from page lA


About ... Any new transit ser-
vice takes a couple of years to?
establish itself," Blanchard'
said. "It doesn't start out as a
success."
Busing's future
Seniors advocates are wor-
ried about the future of public
transportation in and around
Venice. The average resident
is 68 years old, according to
the most recent U.S. Census
Bureau.
Budget issues tend to
threaten South County ser-
vices the most because there
are not as many riders. City
routes in Sarasota average as
many as 36 riders per hour,
while the V-Route only has 6.3
riders per hour.

ON THE BUS
The historic Venice Train
Depot is the transportation
hub for SCAT in this area. Here
are some basic details:
Cost Regular riders pay 50
cents: disabled, seniors and
Medicare fare is 25 cents; and
SCAT-About riders pay $ 1,
with no charge for transfers to
fixed routes.
City routes SCAT-About is
by reservation, 861-1234, and
only serves Venice island; V-
Route is a north-south loop
from the train depot, across
the island, to Kmart and back.
Transfers Connecting
buses are at the train depot.
Routes leaving every two
hours are North Port (No. 9),*
Englewood (No. 16) and Price
Boulevard iNo. 19). The South
Trail route (No. 17) leaves
every hour. The downtown
Sarasota route (No. 5) stops at
East Tampa Avenue and U.S.
41 Business hourly.
Service There is no service
on Sunday or major holidays,
and nearly every route starts
by 6 a.m. and ends by 7 p.m.
Questions SCAT can be
reached at 861-1234.


Residents and city officials
will be consulted before any
major changes would be done
in Venice, Blanchard said.
"South County just doesn't
have the demographics that
typically support a transit sys-
tem," Blanchard said. "There
are a whole lot of reasons why
the passengers: per hour do
not support it. ... It's a consid-
erable difference when you
compare the '36 passengers
per hour to six per hour."
Venice's Senior Living
Committee already is trying
to head off any potential cuts,
and would like to see service

expanded. Members of this
city advisory committee be-
lieve factors like having to
walk too far to bus stops and a
lack of information keep Ven-
ice ridership low.
Having one of the nation's
highest concentrations of
senior citizens makes public
transportation a must, advo-
cates say. SCAT-About is even
more important because
some senior citizens cannot.
handle the long walk to a reg-
ular, fixed-route bus stop.
Committee members hope
to lobby city council and the
mayor for 'a public trans-
portation week in Venice to
raise awareness about the
need for more busing.
"If people knew more
about it, we could increase
ridership," said Tish Kelly, a
resident and frequent SCAT
rider who asked the commit-
tee for help.
Council member Bill Wil-
lson, the ex officio to the com-
mittee, offered encourage-
ment. but indicated the.
future of Venice public trans-
portation looks bleak.
"SCAT's actually looking at
reducing service down here,

not expanding it, because of
decreased ridership," Willson
said.
'Driving grandma'
Bus driver Jeno Demers
has been with SCAT-About
since it began on the island
nearly four years ago. Fellow
drivers andbus riders point to
Demers as making the pro-
gram a success.
One ladytells stories about
how he will help camrr gro-
ceries to her apartment door,
and another talks about how
he always has a smile. While
he was being interviewed
outside the Publix stop, riders
routinely walked by saying,
"Hey, Jeno!"
And he knew their first
name every time.
"It's like driving grandma
around," Demers said. "You
take care of her. ... (Regular
bus routes) are more of a
rush. You have to be in such a
hurry to make the next stop."
The major criticism would
.be ridership. SCAT-About has
steadily increased since be-
ginning in November 2001,
-but there were only 1,000 rid-
ers in February 2004 on SCAT-

Jean Vanore, Venice, departs a bus at the SCAT bus station is Venice, which is the former Venice
Train Depot.


About compared to 3,400 on
the V-Route.
However, in its first month
back in 2001, there were fewer
than 100 riders. November
2003 showed SCAT-About's
improvement, where there
were about 800 riders.
SCAT-About costs $1 per
ride and only runs on the,
island, but transfers to a regu-
lar fixed bus route are free.
Someone who transfers from
a fixed route to SCAT-About is
only charged the difference,
so the total cost is $1.
Demers said walk-ups are
'accepted on SCAT-About, but
only at the island Publix stop
because he was getting too
many riders. Reservations for
pick-ups can be made by call-
ing 861-1234.
Cost for operations of
SCAT-About routes are ohly:
slightly more than a regular
fixed route on full-sized bus-
es, Blanchard said. Passenger
capacity is much smaller,
with only 16 seats on the
SCAT-About buses compared
to 36 seats on full-size buses.
Demers said that helps
keep the service personal-
ized.

"Hopefully, they keep it go-
ing," Demers said. "I've put so
much into it. I love it."
The V-Train
Its real name is not the V-
Train, but the regular full-
sized bus trip called the V-
Route starts and stops at the
historic Venice Train Depot,
the transportation hub for
SCAT in Venice.
Buses regularly roll
through here every hour,
headed for Sarasota, North
Port, Englewood, Sarasota-
Bradenton airport and all
over the county.
V-Route is the local loop
that goes from the train depot
to Venice Beach, Venice Pub-
lic Library, island Publix and
turns around at Kmart just off
the island's south side to
retrace that route headed
north. The loop takes an hour
to complete, and SCAT buses
rumble through each stop
about every half hour.
The train depot and Kmart
are the two transfer locations
for buses headed to other
parts of Sarasota County.
4eost-for regular fixed bus
routes is 50 cents, and the dis-


counted price is 25 cents for
those 65 years old or older
and those with disabilities or
on Medicare.
"There's a lot of nice peo-
ple on the V-Route," said bus
driver Susan Johnson, who's
been a V-Route drive for two
years.
"It's a sleepy trpe of route.
You just have to watch com-
ing in and out of Publix, and
be patient and watch for peo-
ple (down Venice Avenue),"
said Johnson.
While being interviewed,
Vanore, the 11-year SCAT rid-
er from Philadelphia, com-
pared Venice's transportation
to that of her native city. She
said the ability to get nearly
anywhere she needs to go in
Sarasota County on buses is
what impressed her the most
when she moved here.
Tips from Vanore for new
Venice bus. riders are simple:
Get to your stop five-10 min-
utes early, and allow extra time
for appointments in case the
bus is running behind.
"This year, it seems like
they're usually on time, really
doing a good job," Vanore
said.


County adopts new sidewalk guidelines
A new sidewalk program that groups sidewalk segments by region and
coordinates their construction with other ongoing capital improvement projects
should start bringing more sidewalks to neighborhoods soon.
Commissioners have been planning for the installation of county sidewalks
since 1991, when they identified more than 60 miles of roadways that could be
made safer for pede-srian routes to local schools. A recently adopted regional
sidewalk network will create a more cohesive approach to future projects close
gaps in existing r idewal0 s and ensure that future cornslructionr will affect a
neighborhood only once. By scheduling sidewalk construction to coincide with
other capital improvement programs, the county can realize a savings to
taxpayers of up to 40 percent on some projects.
The program will be funded by a bond issue of approximately $16 million.
Borrowing the money now at low interest rates will allow the county to acquire
right of way that might be unattainable in the future because of rising real estate
prices This will allow sidewall design 10 begin immediately, with construction
following within 18 months
The proposed bonding will fund the design and construction of approximately
25.7 miles of sidewalk in north Sarasota, north Gulf Gate, Bee Ridge, Pinecraft,
Phillippi Creek area, Brentwood, Lake Sarasota and Kensington Park between
2005 and 2007. It will also fund the design of 12.3 more miles of sidewalk in
Englewood and Siesta Key.
Plans for each proposed sidewalk network will be presented at public meetings
to gather input before entering the design phase and final construction. For more
information, contact Sarasota County Public Works at (941) 861-0876.

Jim Leis will serve one-year
terms.
Five of the appointees
have direct aviation experi-
ence or do business at Venice
Municipal Airport, including
Rand, who is the president of
Venice Aviation Society Inc.
Black has selected the for-
mer executive director of
Charlotte County Airport to
take over at theVenice airport.
Fred Watts worked at the
Charlotte County Airport for
14 years, directing it for six
years, before leaving it in
2001 for positions with Lee
County and most recently


Titusville-Cocoa Airport Au-
thority.
Watts'is a 1975 graduate of
Charlotte High. The selection
by Black requires council
approvall because the salary
of $72,500 exceeds what is
stipulated for the Venice air-
port manager position.
The job has been vacant
for less than a month after
Robert Hernandez resigned
citing "unexpected personal
obligations." His wife and
children still live in Texas,
where Hernandez worked
before accepting the Venice
Municipal Airport job in late
fall 2003.
Red tide cure?
The Venice High science
department will give a pre-
sentation to city council
about its research into red
tide. Students and teachers
are attempting to determine
if local inventor Bob Rigby
has found the cure for the
foul-smelling condition that
also leads to fish kills off area
beaches.
Though the research has
been ongoing, the presenta-

Venice area roads likely will be a hot topic
at the meeting, scheduled for Wednesday
afternoon at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Three weeks after meeting
with the Sarasota City Com-
mission, Sarasota County
commissioners will turn their
attention south, to Venice.
During the afternoon por-
tion of their meeting Wednes-
day, the two commissions
will meet in a, conference
room at the Twin Lakes Park
complex off Clark Road in
Sarasota.
While the two boards will
discuss interlocal agreements
for fire and emergency ser-
,vices and utility administra-
tion, a joint planning agree-
ment and the status of county
road projects in the Venice
area are likely to be prime top-
ics of interest to both boards.
Prompted by the contro-
versy over the annexation of
the Henry Ranch into Venice
in 2000, city and county offi-
cials began discussions on the
JPA in 2001, but discussions
later broke down and went no
further than the production of
a draft agreement in April
2001.
The idea behind the devel-
opment of the JPA was to


avoid the duplication of infra-
structure improvements by
both governments and plan-
ning for orderly service in
areas that would be logical for
annexation into the city. To
that end, staff from both the
city and county created a
map in early 2001 that showed
future annexation areas for
the city.
In general, the future an-
nexation areas lay on both
sides of the present city limits
in the Laurel Road area. A
small sliver of land on the
east side of Auburn Road
running south to Hatchett
Creek would also be included.
Paving the way
County plans for the ex-
tension of Auburn Road to
Center Road will be high on
the Venice city commission-
ers' list of concerns along
with the Pinebrook Road
extension, the Knights Trail
and Laurel Road intersection,
Jacaranda Boulevard, Border
Road and the Venice Avenue
bridge improvements.
In January, county staff
held a public workshop to
take comments about the
proposed extension of Pine-


brook, but plans for that pro-
ject will not begin in 2010,
when the state widens Inter-
state 75.
Improvements to the Ven-
ice Avenue bridge are already
under way and will be com-
pleted later this year. Other
road projects in the Venice
area are included on the
county's capital improve-
ments projects list but are not
in current plans for construc-
tion.
The meeting with the Ven-
ice City commissioners is
scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
Besides the meeting with
Venice, county commission-
ers will meet in regular session
beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday
and Wednesday in commis-
sion chambers in the County
Administration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
In addition, Access Sara-
sota Channel 19 will carry the
meeting live in its entirety for
viewing by Sarasota County
residents and will repeat the
broadcast throughout the
week. A program schedule is
available on the county's Web
site (www.scgov.net) by select-
ing media from the links list at

Illegal sexual activity is practically non-existent
today in the overflow parking area at
Caspersen Beach. The answer was simple -
make it a public picnic and recreation area.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Often, no news is the news
and so it is with the over-
flow parking area east of
Caspersen Beach.
The once-remote area
known to law enforcement
officers as "The Trails" has
disappeared, and with it the
illegal sexual activity that
occurred there with alarming
regularity.
"It's not as secluded with
all the things the county put
in and all the activities out
there," Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Sgt. Chuck Lesaltato said.
"Plus, with our regular patrols
with Venice police assisting,
word has gotten out."
Lesaltato said it will be
"interesting" to see what the
warmer weather brings. The
bulk of the illegal sexually
activity occurred during
Spring and summer.
The area now has a pavil-
ion and a picnic area, and is
open to the public for family
activities.
There also is additional


parking, a canoe-launch area
and a new trail that runs
from the beach access area at
the island's west side to the
east side, where a pedestrian
bridge connects to the Ve-
netian Waterway Park.
"We haven't really had any
illegal sexual activity arrests
since last November," Lesal-
tato said. "We did have one
call recently but it turned out
to be nothing."
The way things used to be
The area used to be heavily
overgrown and laced with
serpentine dirt roads and
trails. The illegal sexual activ-
ity took place in cars and
outdoors, all but hidden.from
view by the scrub. However,
enough beach-goers noticed
it to complain.
The sanitizing began with
a $12 padlock and chain two
years ago. That temporarily
prevented vehicular access
to the area.
Next was a tear-down of
old bridge number 4085 that
crossed Red Lake Inlet (so
obscure it did not have a


name, only an engineering
number) and its replacement
with a new bridge.
The scheduled park im-
provements were a joint ef-
fort of the city of Venice, the.
county parks and recreation
department and Venice Area
Beautification Inc.
Cost of the new bridge
was about $500,000, paid for
with the infrastructure surtax
(1-cent sales tax).
The new bridge was de-
signed to last for 75 years.
Since you asked
Old 4085 was less than 20
feet long, which meant it did
not qualify for federal or state
replacement funding or in-
spection.
So, engineers began work-
ing smarter rather than hard-
er.
They made the new 4085
more than 20 feet long to qual-
ify for future inspections and
funding. It also is slightly
wider, to accommodate a 10-
foot sidewalk and new bridge
barriers.
Prefabricated bridge com-
ponents were used to mini-
mize construction time.

SCAT buses will get more funds to make up shortfall


Commissioners will vote next month on a budget
amendment to make up projected $1.6 million
shortfall in the county's public tarnsportation
system.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
. SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

The buses will continue to
Srun.
Faced with a projected $1.6
million shortfall, Sarasota
- County commissioners unan-
imously authorized county
staff to advertise a public
hearing in March to amend
the budget of the Sarasota
County Area Transit system to
make up for the shortfall.
"We'd have to cut service
without the $1.6 million,"
Deputy CountyAdministrator
Dave Bullock told commis-
sioners.
The shortfall was identified
after completion of an inter-
nal audit of SCAT's finances.

ager of the county's Trans-


College night is

Hosted byVenice High, the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club
and A.G. Edwards, students


are being afforded a great op-
portunity to have colleges
come directly.to them in a set-
ting right in the community,
Kindell said.


portation Planning and Tran-
sit Services Department, told
commissioners the $1.6 mil-
lion is needed to meet salary,
benefits and other operating
expenses of SCAT, such as
fuel, overtime and mainte-
nance.
The latest need for finan-
cial triage came after com-
missioners came through
with a $1.2 million aid pack-
age last September, so the
system would complete the
fiscal year with a balanced
budget.


,


Reimbursement cuts
In a report to the board last
year detailing SCAT's finan-
cial woes, Harriott attributed
the problems to myriad rea-
sons, including higher fuel
and overtime cqsts, decreas-
ed funding from Medicaid,
lower-than-anticipated rev--
enues from fares and a deficit
from a prior year.
Also adding to the problem
is the cost of maintaining
paratransit services.
Because SCAT operates a
26-bus fixed route system
throughout the county, it is
required by the Americans
with Disabilities Act to pro-
vide bus service to the dis-
abled within 3/4 mile of the
fixed route. SCAT operates 27
daily paratransit buses.


In his report requesting the
authority to advertise the
public hearing, Harriott told
commissioners that SCAT
ridership reached its highest
level in 2003-04 with 1.8 mil-
lion riders, which amounts to
an annual increase of almost
5 percent. At the same time,
SCAT made 180,000 paratran-
sit trips in 2004, an increase of
nearly 16 percent.
A one-way Medicaid para-
transit trip costs SCAT $21
and demand for the service is
increasing. In 2003, SCAT
served 845 clients, climbing
to 1,400 in 2004.
In Fiscal Year 2003, SCAT
received $677,094 in Medi-
caid reimbursements for pro-
viding Medicaid-eligible resi-
dents with paratransit ser-


vices.
That climbed to $722,809
in 2004 as SCAT also intro-
duced measures to move res-
idents off the more costly
paratransit buses and onto
regular SCAT buses.
In 2005, the county's Medi-
caid reimbursement will drop
to $564,604 due to a change in
the funding formula by the
federal government.
"We wanted to get a com-
plete audit," said Harriott,
explaining the lack of pro-
gress by the ad hoc group.
"We want to know everything
that's happening in the sys-
tem."

Murphy did not stop at the
crash scene, continuing north
on U.S. 41 in the left lane. As
she approached the intersec-
tion with Palm Avenue, her
car crossed the median,
struck a sign and continued
across the southbound lanes
of traffic to the west shoulder
of U.S. 41, where her car
struck Knapp and White.
The car continued along
the shoulder, crossing Pavon-
ia Road and coming to rest in
a ditch, entangled in the sup-
port wires of a utility pole.
According to the release,
Murphy and Saunders re-
ceived only minor injuries.
Damage to Murphy's car is
estimated at $2,000.
Charges are pending the
completion of the investiga-
tion into the accident, which,
according to the release was
alcohol related.


5TAFF REPORT


Late Friday afternoon,
Sarasota attorney Peter Col-
lins called the Venice Gondo-
lier Sun to inform the paper
that he was representing
James LaMorte Sr.
Alleged victims have come
forward and claimed that La-
Morte sexually abused them
when they were his students
between the ages of 13-17
years old.
A Venice police report
states that LaMorte "made
admissions" regarding the
abuse claims more than two
decades ago and "apolo-
gized."
LaMorte has not been


arrested or charged with the
alleged crimes.
"We don't know what the
allegations are. I do not be-
lieve he has admitted to or
apologized for anything,"
Collins said.
"He certainly would not
admit to something he did
not do. I have not seen any
evidence to suggest he did
anything."
Asked why, if LaMorte has
not been charged, he needs
an attorney, Collins said,
"Because he needs to be
defended in the press. My
preference is to try the case in
court, if there is ever a case."
Collins is a former assis-
tant state attorney.


ABUSEfrom page 1A


report stated.
Through Sarasota attorney
'eter Collins, LaMorte has
denied making any admis-
sions, and the lapse of time
since the alleged incidents
makes it unlikely he could be
prosecuted, though the in-
vestigation remains open.
No charges
LaMorte has not been
arrested or charged with the
crimes pending the outcome
of the investigation. He re-
signed from his school job
Wednesday following the ac-
cusations alleged victims
made to police.


The family member came
to the Venice Gondolier Sun
with attorney Kevin Staas for
a one-hour interview late
Friday on condition the inter-
viewee's identity would not be
revealed.
The interviewee said the
alleged abuse was a betrayal.
"Those kids trusted him
and he used'that trust to de-
stroy them," the family mem-
ber said.
The beginning
The family member said
the alleged victim first
broached the subject of his
sexual abuse in 1986.


"He just said something
happened to him," the family
member said. "When we
asked him what it was, well,
we got no answer."
The answer would not sur-
face for many more years.
"In 1998," the family mem-
ber said, "he said he had been
sexually battered, and named
LaMorte."
The interviewee said while
LaMorte's name did not sur-
face until then, the family
member "knew" LaMorte
was the alleged abuser.
"You know, I remember
the one thing everybody said
about him back then was how


strange he was, so, no, I was
not surprised that he was the
one named," the person said
without elaborating.
'Living hell'
The alleged victim, now in
his late'30s, paid dearly for the
abuse, the family member
said.
The family member said
the alleged victim has had a
tumultuous life filled with
anger and alcohol, and that
he has never been able to
have a relationship.
The interviewee said the
alleged victim has never been
able to love or be loved, and


that his life has been a living
hell.
"I guess I have to ask -
why can he (LaMorte) retire at
a nice pension when he has
admitted to the abuse?" the
person said. "I want him to
lose his pension and publicly
admit what he did."
The person said hear-
ing others come to La-
Morte's defense is trou-
blesome for the alleged
victim's family.
"It is so much more painful
when people doubt that this
really happened," the family
member said. "This is not a
witch hunt."

Man captures 13-foot python in Englewood


What appeared to be a large piece of vegetation
turned out to be an exotic pet that probably
escaped from a nearby residence.


BYGARRYOVERBEY
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Chef Keith Kashishian lit-
erally took matters into his
own hands Thursday when
he came across a giant py-
thon sprawled across a busy
street in Englewood.
Kashishian, 45, was driving
along Fruitland Avenue late
Thursday morning when he
saw the motorist in front of
him drive around a long ob-
ject blocking the road.
"I thought it was a log or a
palm frond fallen across the
road," Kashishian said.
But it turned out to be a
python about 13 feet of
python, according to Kash-
ishian, who said he's had ex-
perience handling snakes. He
said he once caught a dia-
mondback rattlesnake in the
woods nearby.
Not wanting to see the rep-
tile get run over, Kashishian
stopped his truck and ap-
proached it you guessed it
- very carefully.
"He hadn't eaten in a
while," said Kashishian, a chef
at the Country Hound Cafe in
Palm Plaza. "He was looking
for food."
Though the python wasn't
venomous, Kashishian knew



Free flu shots

available for

children

STAFF REPORT,

Sarasota County Health
Department .officials, an-
nounced they are now offer-
ing free flu shots at the four
heAlthldepartment child im-
munization clinic sites in
Sarasota, Venice and North
Port. This includes children
ages 6 months through 18
years. Parent must be present
and bring prior shot records.
"We are hopeful that this
will encourage families to get
their children the protection
needed to prevent flu or re-
duce the severity of symp-
toms from flu-like illness,"
said, Dr. Sandra MacLeod, the
health department's medical
executive director. "When
children are immunized
against flu, the entire com-
munity benefits since there is
less flu circulating."
For information on immu-
nization days and times, call
(941) 861-2900. .
Anyone else who wants to
have a flu shot may now re-
ceive one as well.
Optima Health Services
continues to provide flu shots
at its office by appointment
only. Call (941) 747-1585 for
an appointment.
Residents are advised to
persist in calling the number
if they don't get through ini-
tially since the office contin-
ues to receive numerous calls
daily.
Flu-Mist, the live-virus vac-
cine, is available for healthy
people under age 50. Health-
care workers and caregivers in
this category are excellent
candidates for the Flu-Mist
vaccine.
The cost is $20 for the flu
vaccine injection, $35 for Flu-
Mist and $35 for pneumonia
shots. Cash, check and Medi-
care B are accepted. Present
your Medicare B card to get
the shot at no charge.


it could deliver "a nasty bite."
"I grabbed him by the tail,"
he said. "He kept striking back
at me."
Kashishian finally brought
it under control by pinning its
head to the pavement with a
golf club a passerby gave him.
"It's important to hold the
back of the head," he said.
Needs a home
Kashishian draped the
snake around his shoulders
and was thinking of taking it
to a friend who works at
Jungle Gardens in Sarasota.
Just then, a pair of Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office detec-
tives Richard Kaufman and
Cpl. Michael Krzysiak -
drove by and saw the man
standing by the side of the
road with a huge snake wrap-
ped around his body. They
stopped and called Charlotte
County Animal Control.
"If they can't take him, I'm
taking him," Kashishian told
Animal Control officer Ron-
elle Zaloga after they loaded
the python into a compart-
ment in the side of her truck.
He said his wife won't let him
have snakes in their Grove
City home, but he would take
it to his friend at Jungle Gar-
dens.


"This is my first snake call,"
said Zaloga, who's been with
Animal Control about three
months.
She took the snake to the
Suncoast Humane Society on
San Casa Drive where, be-
cause it's classified as an exot-
ic pet, it will be treated like
any other stray animal.
"We can give it plenty of
water, and keep it comfort-
able," said Dean Humfleet,
the shelter's director of opera-
tions, but the shelter won't
-feed it its usual diet of live
rodents or rabbits "unless we
can find (a supplier) with an
already deceased rat or chick-
en."
Humfleet said it's not un-
common for big snakes to be
brought to shelters. He be-
lieves this one is a female.
"Usually, they've escaped
(from someone's home), or
they've been'stolen," he said.
"Sometimes the owners are
afraid to come forward be-
cause they're fearful the snake
may have harmed another
animal."
If it's not claimed after five
days, the python will be
turned over to a serpentari-
um, a herpetologist or "some-
one else who knows how to
care for snakes," Humfleet
said, adding that wouldn't
rule out Kashishian.

Indian matmen run away with region


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

If the 2003-2004 Venice
High wrestling team is one of
the school's best ever, then
the 2004-2005 Indian squad
has to be right there, too.
This season's squad ac-
complished something last
season's couldn't win a
region title.
Venice captured the Class
2A Region 3 championship
with surprising ease, amass-
ing 201.5 team points com-
pared to just 138 for runnerup
Countryside. There were 32
schools represented in the
event held Friday and Sat-
urday at Charlotte High. ,
The Indians had four indi-


vidual champions Cory
Rittenhouse (103 pounds),
Keith Koziel (130), Zach
Gaudreau (171) and Jeremie
Cook (189). There were also
four runnerups Matt
Rossheim (119), Brett Nelson
(140), Randy Re (160) and
Viktor Vasilevskiy (215) -
while Ricky Heil (152)
checked in fourth.
That adds up to nine wrest-
lers heading to this week's
State Finals in Lakeland.
"This is a team of over-
achievers," Indian coach Dan
Kelly said. "We only had five
kids who had wrestled varsity
heading into the season. We're
peaking right now. We're
wrestling great. I believe

for this."
Rittenhouse (35-6) capped
a 4-0 tourney with a 9-2 deci-
sion over Barron Collier's Eric
Torres (23-5) in the 103 final.
Sophomore Koziel became
the second Indian to grab
gold, as he held off a spirited
effort by Charlotte's Aaron
Hysell (22-10). Koziel used a
third period takedown to
insure a 4-3 decision. Koziel


the Lady Indians were far
from midseason form when
they first played Clearwater.
Center Lisa Hough, guard
Natalie Gaudreau and for-
ward Sam "Red Bird" Worth-
ington were fresh from
volleyball and weren't in a
hoops mode yet.
Hough went on to have a
big season, scoring her
1,000th point and grabbing
her 1,000th rebound. Gau-
dreau, has been on fire lately.
She had 22 points against
Fort Myers. in the regional
opener Thursday. Worthing-
ton is a reliable player off
the bench.
"We have a healthy re-
spect for Venice," said Clear-

Shaneyfelt.

the region semi. Venice
squeaked past Fort Myers,

Gaudreau continued his
amazing senior season by
recording three pins and a
major decision at 171. He,
planted Countryside's Matt
Attinella in 1:11 of their final.
Gaudreau is now 35-1.
Up next was Jeremie Cook
at 189. Cook (41-0) manhan-
dled Ridgewood's Kevin Glea-
son for a 15-0 technical fall in
the final. Cook pinned Glea-
son earlier in the season at
the East Lake tournament.
Rossheim lost 6-1 to Kent
Costell of Countryside in the
119 final.
The rematch of dithe District
11 final saw the same result at

ond time this season to Wes-
tley Walker of Countryside.

Seagrass




research cites




problems



Prop scarring and pollution are damaging
more and more areas of seagrass, and
there's no obvious way to protect them.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


The amount of seagrass
beds in Charlotte Harbor that
have been severely damaged
by motorboat propellers has
increased dramatically over
the past decade.
But the total number of
acres of seagrasses in the
22,000-acre Charlotte Harbor
Aquatic Preserve has changed
very little over that period.
Those mixed findings
were revealed Wednesday in
presentations by several
scien-tists who examined the
health of the harbor's sea-
grass beds. Their presenta-
tions came during the four-
day Charlotte Harbor Water-
shed Summit, which con-
cluded Thursday.
Using ever-more sophisti-
cated monitoring tools, to-
day's scientists now know
more than ever about the
harbor's seagrass resource.
Yet, they say, they still don't
know enough to guarantee
its preservation.
Several scientists called for
both concrete actions by local
and state governments and
additional research to more


closely monitor changes in
the seagrasses. The changes
in the areas covered by each
of at least three species now
growing in the harbor need
to be analyzed, said Jaime
Greenawalte, seagrass re-
searcher.
"If we're aware of changes
to species composition, may-
be we'll have a few years to
do something about our
water quality," she said.
The Charlotte Harbor
National Estuary Program,
which organized the sympo-
sium, will compile its recom-
mendations into the NEP's
estuary management, plan,
said Lisa Beever, executive
director.
The NEP's partners, which
include local, state and gov-
ernmental agencies, will then
be tapped to implement the
recommendations, she said.

No standard
Beever pointed out the
state has to date established
no Water quality standard
geared to foster seagrass
growth. But, scientists have
been measuring declines in
water quality in parameters
that are known to hurt sea-

grass beds.
For example, they know
stormwater discharges are
flushing increasing amounts
of silt and nutrients into the
estuary. That clouds the water
and feeds algae.
The algae then can block
more- sunlight, starving out
seagrasses in the process.
"Throughoutit the area,
we're seeing bjg increases -
long-term increases in
total suspended solids,"
Beever said. "We now have
the numbers we can use (to
set firm estuary goals)."
Seagrass beds are vital to
the health of the estuary. They
provide habitat for fish, crus-
taceans, shrimps and crabs.
They feed manatees and
other animals. And they filter
out sediments and stabilize
the bottom.
Propeller damage occurs
when power boats venture
into waters that are too shal-
low. The propellers slice
gouges through the grasses.
Once .damaged, the
gouges often grow worse
instead of better. Waves can
cause erosion that turns a
slice into ia trough. The bot-
tom silt can then become
suspended in the water, and
that reduces clarity for
neighboring plants.

'Astounding'
In Charlotte Harbor, the
amount of prop-damaged
area increased by 38 percent,

from more than 1,500 acres
to more than 2,000 acres in
just the past 10 years, said
Kevin Madley, a scientist for
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Madley surveyed propel-
ler damage in 2003-04 and
compared it to aerial pho-
tographs of damage record-
ed in 1990.
According to Madley, the
amount of "severely dam-
aged" seagrass beds in-
creased 71 percent, a number
Beever called "astounding."
Those beds were covered by
hundreds of scars.
Of Florida's 31 coastal
counties, Lee and Charlotte
counties have the dubious
distinction of having the
third- and fourth-most prop
scars, he said.
Madley showed a series
of aerial photographs taken
recently. One photo shows
how dozens of powerboats
leaving Pine Island Marina
have been taking a shortcut
Across a grass bed rather
than travel in the marked
channel.
Another photo shows
how a sailboat at anchor in
the harbor cut a circle in the
grass bed around its anchor.
The circle was cut as the boat
was blown around in circles
by shifting winds.
Another photo shows two
parallel tracks across a sea-
grass bed. The tracks lead to
a marooned Jeep that some

motorist had abandoned.
The amount of seagrass
listed as "slightly damaged"
actually decreased since
1990, Madley said. But, that's
because some of the slightly
damaged areas had declined
further to become severely
damaged, he explained.
Madley suggested local
agencies implement boater
education programs and in-
stall. channel markers and
other signs to warn boaters
away from shallow areas.
Some areas may need to be
designated slow-speed
zones, and enforcement
needs to be beefed up, he
added.

Tip of the iceberg
For the past five years, sci-
entists have also been moni-
toring the water quality,
underwater sunlight and
depth of seagrass beds in 50
locations in the harbor, in a
project,. sponsored, by, the
Floridar Department of En-
vironriental Protection, the
Sanibel-Captiva Conserva-
tion Foundation and the
Charlotte Harbor Environ-
mental Center.
By' linking seagrass health
to water quality data, they
hope to identify at-risk
areas and draft specific
strategies for improving the
water quality, said Katie
Fuhr, lead scientist on the
project.
In the past, scientists


merely analyzed changes to
the acreage of seagrass cover.
Now, however, scientists are
beginning to track changes
to the amounts of various
species of seagrasses growing
in a particular bed, said
Greenawalt.
That information is im-
portant because some
species fade out and others
move in as water quality
declines, she said.
"This is just the tip of the
iceberg," Greenawalt said.
She suggested the gov-
ernment establish specific
ranges of water quality para-
meters including the per-
centage of light that gets to
the bottom at a certain
depth.
Achieving such goals
could require local govern-
ments to implement long-
range projects, such as
building "filter marshes" at
the outfall of drainage canals,
Beever said. With patience
and perseverance, such pro-
jects can be accomplished,
she added.
Beever pointed out that
20-some years ago, the need
for a filter marsh at Ten Mile
Canal in Lee County was
recognized. That marsh got
under construction this
year.
"It is possible," she said.

Charlotte County wins mine decision,




Charlotte County wins mine decision


An appellate court ruling means there can be no
more appeals on the Altman mine, but the com-
pany seeking the permit has another application
pending.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


Charlotte County won the
final round in one battle over
a phosphate company's plan
to strip mine the pristine
headwaters of Horse Creek
Friday.
The Second District Court
of Appeal upheld a state
administrative law judge's
2003 recommendation that a
permit to mine the the 2,300-
acre so-called Altman tract be
denied.
But, the end in the county's
war to protect the Peace River
from the mining still remains
off on the horizon, according
to a special county attorney
on the case.
In fact, IMC Phosphates
already filed a new applica-
tion to mine the Altman Tract
a year ago.
IMC merged with Cargill
Crop Nutrition in October to
form the new company Mo-


saic, which has assumed all
IMC's mine applications.
Meanwhile, the phosphate
industry is lobbying the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection to
water down rules regulating
wetlands litigation the
very rules at the crux of the
county's case, said Dave
Caldevilla, an attorney for the
county from the de la Parte
firm.
"It's going to .take state
agencies to enforce the laws
that are on the books and it's
going to take the Legislature
to do the right thing for the
environment and the people
of the state of Florida,"
Caldevilla said.
The battle
Still, Friday's victory was
encouraging news for Char-
lotte County commissioners,
who have committed some
$10 million over the past six
years to the phosphate battle.


"I think it's one of the best
things to finally happen," said
Commissioner Tom D'Aprile.
"It gives DEP an open door
to look at things a little differ-
ent," he added.
"Our concern is what it has
always been, that the Peace
River, which provides drink-
ing water for people and
freshwater flows to keep
Charlotte Harbor healthy, be
protected from the real con-
sequences of strip mining,"
said Commissioner Adam
Cummings.
The Altman tract is located
in northwestern Hardee
County along the Manatee
County border.
In the Altman hearing, in
May 2003, the county argued
that IMC "misrepresented"
the quality of the marshes
and streams that make up the
headwaters of Horse Creek.
For example, IMC's expert
witnesses described the so-
called Central Marsh as a
"vegetative desert," Caldevilla
said.
However, the county's ex-
perts displayed photographs
and reports showing the'
marsh to be a pristine wet-
land habitat used by endan-


gered species.
The county also claimed
the company used a flawed
computer model to project
how water would course
through the reclaimed mine
site.
The model showed that
reduction in flow to the Peace
River would be very small.
But, the model was origi-
nally designed to be used for
garbage landfills and its
creator had written a dis-
claimer warning against us-
ing the model for other pur-
poses.
Also, IMC overestimated
the value of the wetlands it
would build to replace ones
excavated, Caldevilla said.
But, county experts argued
IMC's reclaimed wetlands
turn out worse than the origi-
nal natural wetlands, Calde-
villa said.
Administrative Law Judge
J. Lawrence Johnston ruled in
the county's favor in the fall of
2003.
The DEP subsequently
denied IMC's permit.

Now, the DEP is working to
rewrite its rules to more close-


Estuary study of hurricane impacts will last years


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Direction, approach speed
and the eye wall are key fac-
tors in determining the im-
pact a storm surge has during
a hurricane.
This was just one of the
presentations on the final day
of the annual Charlotte Har-
bor Watershed Summit held
at Edison College this week.
The event brought scien-
tists from all over the region
to talk about the lessons
learned from research before


during and after the hurri-
cane season.
The prevailing theme from
the summit is that it will take
years of intense study to
know the true long-term im-
pacts Hurricane Charley had
on the Charlotte Harbor Na-
tional Estuary.
One of the final presenta-
tions explained why Charley
did not wash away much of
the area from a storm surge.
Lianyuan Zheng, a scien-
tist from the University of
South Florida College of Ma-
rine Science, told the crowd


there are many factors that
limited the storm surge im-
pacts.
"Going up the harbor was
the best case in all of our
studies," Zheng said.
The maximum surge re-
corded in the harbor was
about 3 feet on the west side
of the harbor, he said. The
east side of the harbor, toward
Alligator Creek actually re-
ceded nearly 6 feet as the eye
passed over.
Another major factor was
the extreme forward speed of
the storm, which prevented


the buildup of water normal-
ly expected in a hurricane.
Had the storm come into
the coast parallel or at a dif-
ferent angle to the coast, the
surge from Charley could
have reached 12 feet or great-
er.
Dave Tomasko, of 'the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, report-
ed the foul smell emanating
from the harbor in the weeks
immediately following the
hurricane has a link to the
extreme drop in oxygen in the
water.


ly conform with state phos-
phate mining laws, according
to Rick Cantrell, water re-
source director for the DEE
The phosphate industry is
lobbying in the process to
"loosen" the regulations, Cal-
devilla said.
"We're working to oppose
that," he said. "We think the
rules should be strengthened,
not weakened."
Cummings called the ap-
pellate court decision an
"earth-shaking precedent."
"People always assumed,
well, you justcan't deny phos-
phate mining a permit, but
that's just what happened
here," he said.
"It's encouraging, but we
still have a very long row to
hoe here," Cummings added.
"But, it sure is nice to see a
light down that tunnel."
Mosaic spokeswoman Chris


Smith emphasized that her
company has already reap-
plied for a new Altman per-
mit.
"That's what we're waiting
for," she said.
But the county's attorneys
have already found compo-
nents in the new application
that contain the same prob-
lems as the original, Calde-
villa said.
The attorneys have written
letters to DEP voicing con-
cern over those issues, he
said.
The appellate court wrote
no opinion to accompany its
decision.
That precludes any chance
for Mosaic to appeal the rul-
ing to the Florida Supreme
Court.
However, the company has
15 days to request a rehear-
ing.

HOW TO FLOSS
The function of dental floss is to clean the surfaces of teeth that
cannot be reached by the toothbrush. The floss is stretched between
the fingers, which are placed inside and outside the teeth. It is then
gently slipped between the teeth not snapped through. Snapping
can injure the gum tissue, so it is important to ease rather than force
the floss through. The floss should then be worked three or four times
up and down in a scraping motion, without rubbing the gum. It should
not be pulled back and forth. This "sawing" action causes undue wear.
Flossing is a skill that takes some practice. Eventually one's fingers
get a "feel" for what they are doing. Floss holders can make it easier,
but they are not necessary for anyone with normal dexterity. As long as
you can hold the floss taut, you can learn. Even a skilled flosser has
difficulty where contacts between the teeth are. very tight or fray the
nylon. If this occurs these problems may be eliminated by scaling the
teeth or by smoothing or replacing defective fillings.

"He did an excellent job,"
said Pamela Larocque. Engel's
teacher in Advanced Life Sci-
ence. "He's a very innovative
thinker. He went into great
depth and got a clean exper-
iment on it. It could have been
a high school experiment"
"One of his theories is that
plants not only grow, but
communicate by how they
grow. He was trying to answer
the question: Do plants com-
municate with each other by
light? It was beyond growth


under various colors of light.
He really took off with it. He is
one of those kids that goes all
out. It was awesome."
Pine View science head
David Yotsuda (aka "Mr. Y, the
Science Guy") was happywith
his school's performance at
the fair. Pine View, a school for
the gifted, received 10 first-
place awards at the fair.
"The only thing we didn't hit
this year was high school," Yot-
suda said. "The one student
that did compete at the high
school level placed second. Us-
ually we have more winners."
"The students were involv-
ed in other fund-raising pro-
jects this year, like hurricane
relief efforts and buddying up
with Memorial Elementary in
DeSoto County," Yotsuda said.

There's still room for happiness over escheated lots


here's no doubt that the dispute over the
2,218 lots Sarasota County has acquired
for nonpayment of taxes is far from
over.
Whatever the outcome, not everyone in
North Port is going to be satisfied, although
they may be mollified once the process of
selling the lots is completed with the. pos-
sibility of North Port netting $20 million.
Rob Robinson, the attorney for the city of
North Port, is working with his county coun-
terparts to put the legislators' understanding
into an interlocal agreement. While the attor-
neys have been working on this since the
Dec. 7 joint meeting between the city and
county commissions, the agreement seems
to be a long time in coming. Their nex meet-
ing is later this month.
Robinson indicated at Monday night's city
commission meeting that even when the


agreement is completed, it won't be specific
enough to be enlightening.
But, there will be an agreement, he said. That
means that it's cast in stone that, after other fees
are paid, North Port will get 55 percent of the
proceeds and the county will receive 45.
Some citizens contend state statutes back
their belief all the escheatedd" lots belong to
the city. Asked by a citizen if that is still an
option, Robinson said, "That ship has already
sailed." It's a quote to remember because
several residents had questions about seek-
ing legal satisfaction.
Some citizens believe the agreement was
botched by not having public comment at
the Dec. 7 meeting. Robinson has deter-
mined that since no citizen requested to
speak, that won't fly (or sail). Both the owner-
ship and the non-public comment are cer-
tain to be major items when theNorth Port


populace gets an opportunity to speak this
Wednesday evening.
An appraiser, said Robinson,'is putting a
"fair market value" on each of the lots.
Speakers were concerned that those prices
will be too expensive for "ordinary" citizens
to afford them.
Even if there is no citizen acceptance of
these items, there are still several parts of the
sale that can go the residents' way, and
Robinson should be the front person is mak-
ing certain that they are part of the package.
Once FMV has been determined, citizens
could compete by sealed bid, rather than at
open auction. By closed bids, a person might
have bids in on a dozen with the possibility of
"buying" 12 lots with money only available
for one. In order to take care of those people,
we would much prefer open bidding.
There also needs to be protection from


developers who would cut a deal with adja-
cent home owners who do not have the funds
to take advantage of, the process that gives
them first shot.
Already 16 of the lots have been identified
as environmentally sensitive and another 16
are archaeologically sensitive. The city gets
100 lots for governmental purposes. Third in
the order of progression are the lots adjacent
to homeowners. The agreement reached on
Dec. 7 was that they would be next in line.
However, Robinson said there is a glitch be-
cause county law forbids one class of buyers
getting preference over another. We'd like that
cleared up, too.
The best news the residents heard Mon-
day night is that, instead of selling off the lots
in bundles of 50, there's a chance that they'll
be sold one at a time. Robinson should push
hard for that to be part of the final process.


Exception.?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

One of the questions the
editorial board asked city
council candidates last fall
was, "Do you favor limiting
building heights?" Everyone
said yes, yet many said they
still favored having excep-
dons.
The example used repeat-
edly was the Diocese of Ven-
ice senior affordable housing
project on Albee Farm Road
that was allowed to go to four
stories. Most agreed it is a
good project but felt there
should be strict height restric-
tions. None could pinpoint
what it should be, but 35 to 50
feet seemed to be the limit
mentioned the most.
Tuesday was going to be
the first chance to see how
council members really feel
about exceptions, in an ap-
peal on a four-story building
on Venice Avenue in the heart
of downtown. They got a
reprieve as the challenge has
been questioned by the city
attorney. That is a shame,
because what the public
wants is for council to be re-
sponsible for this critical deci-
sion.
As I have mentioned be-
fore, Vero Beach solved the
problem by having all height
variances approved by the
voters. You can bet that pretty
much eliminates exceptions.
The voters there even turned
down a church spire although
did approve an airport tower.
So far, the rule has been to
grant the exception, or so it
seems. Most who have
applied for an exception have
been granted one, which
means they must not be too
"exceptional." The exception-
al soon will be ordinary..
Case in point is the four-
story building proposed for
downtown. The reason the
planning commission ap-
proved it was the owners had
set the upper stories back
from the street with balconies
extending out, sort of hiding
the top two stories. That's so
the owners could have a two-
story condo on top of two sto-
ries of retail and condo rental
space. That struck me as be-
ing very far from the senior
housing example the candi-
dates used.
It would be easier for all
involved, if, as in Naples or
Vero, the rules were more
absolute.
******
The county has recom-
mended naming the park be-
hind the train depot for


Rollins Coakley in recogni-
tion of all the years he spent
saving the depot. This is rich-
ly deserved.
At that same place (or on
plaque inside), others who
played important roles -
such as Phil Ellis and Greg
Vine should be recognized
as well.

pest control folks were called

Spare no effort to save historic home


Editor:
As president of the Venice Area Historical Society and for-
mer chairwoman of the Venice Historical Commission, I sup-
port efforts to save the 1896 two-story home'built associated
with members of the Higel family. I call upon the city of Venice
to save this historical property by:
Contacting historical organizations throughout Sarasota
County that might be interested in acquiring it, have the
resources to move it and have a site for it.
Assigning a staff person to search for city- or county-
owned land to which the home could be moved. It could be the
nucleus around which a "pioneer village" could be built, as in
Manatee County. Grants maybe available for such projects.
Such a village could be manned by volunteers and sustained
with tourist dollars. That staff person could look at relocating
the 1896 home to Blalock Park across the street from the city's
archives, which does not have enough exhibition space. This
pioneer home could provide this space.
My bent is to not only save this 1896 home but to use it for
historical education. However, as a last resort, we cannot
exclude the possibility that a private individual might wish to
move it to a site where it could be used as an office. This possi-
bility beats the wrecking ball.
I wish that the Venice Area Historical Society had the finan-
cial resources to purchase land to which this home could be
moved but we do not, However, we do have volunteers willing
to help.

City Attorney Bob Ander-

We have restrictions for a

the small, charming city I
selected to enjoy the rest of
my life.
How the locals handle
their affairs is almost comical.
I like Marty Black, and have
no qualms with city council

a time when our elected offi-

Editor:
The planning commission
agreed to allow a four-story,
44-foot-high building to be
built in downtown Venice
because of a lack of citizen
opposition. Apparently cur-

not sufficient to protect our
community from undesired
growth.
Do we have to be present
at each of these hearings to
prevent the city government
from overturning our desire
to keep growth within reason?
Fortunately, several resi-
dents were motivated to try to
overturn this decision. Now it
is up to the citizens of Venice
to show up at the council

We need to get organized,
Venice, if we don't want our

High prices threaten sensitive-lands program


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Since it began five years
ago, the environmentally sen-
sitive land program has been
one of Sarasota County's most
successful endeavors.
Funded by an additional
property tax of 0.25 mills
approved by county voters in
March 1999, the program has
protected more than *15,000
acres of property, such as the
Manasota Scrub Preserve
along State Road 776 in North
Englewood and the Lemon
Bay Preserve in South Venice.
Thanks to the program, vast
tracts of land along the Myak-
ka River are now protected.
That 15,000 acres, accord-
ing to county staff, represents
35 percent of the originally
designated 36,000 acres wor-
thy of protection in 18 protec-
tion priority sites. Five years
later, those 18 sites have ex-
panded to 24 sites for a total
of 42,660 acres.
A lofty goal for a county of
366,080 acres.
But maintaining the suc-
cess of the past five years in
today's real estate market is
difficult. That's because land
prices and property values
are increasing faster than the
ability of the program to keep
up with them. In short, the


market is pushing Sarasota
County out of the protection
program.
For example, many parcels
that the acquisition program
has been in negotiation on
the past five years have dou-
bled or tripled in price. Some
of the more speculative prop-
erties have seen a 10-fold
increase in market value.
So, what's the county to do
if it wants to remain in the
land preservation business?
Commissioners took the
first step this recently, when
they authorized the issuance
of $17.2 million in bonds to
acquire properties taking
the county to the bonding
limit of $53. million autho-
rized as part of the 1999 levy.
That's not enough, says
Eric Sutton, the county's gen-
eral manager of natural
resources, to buy properties
currently in negotiation that
'may close in the next 18
months. Sutton and county
staff estimate those proper-
ties will cost the county $30
million'to $40 million.
Commissioners gave staff
the greeri light this past week
to go forth and explore the
options for funding mecha-
nisms that will accomplish
the goals of the program. It's a
task that will prove every bit
as challenging as negotiating


with an astute landowner try-
ing to get the best deal possi-
ble.
For the betterment of the
county, this is an area where
staff really needs to think out-
side the box.

in stock because "someone
might want to buy one."
To continue our trip to
Wisconsin, we had to lose
$5,500 in trade-in value on
our Colorado, which was
worth $26,000 just three
weeks before that, and Nissan
would give us more than
Chevrolet would.
GM's Executive Division
would admit no wrong, but as
a tacit admission of guilt part-
way through the 2004 model
year it completely re-routed
the gas line and now protects
the connector with a sturdy
shield.
Is this the new General
Motors way to make loyal cus-
tomers?

other openings.
We all knew that there had
to be changes to a business
that was losing money almost
every Near. I hear that they are
changing the structure so that
each hospital pretty- much
stands alone. So, where Bon
Secours used some' people to
handlethings for both St. Joe's
and Venice, nowVenice will be
pretty much on its own.
There have been resigna-
tions also.

Our community weight
loss challenge has good news
and bad news. Of the people
measured last week, 74 per-
cent had lost weight and
some fat. But a large number
did not get weighed, which
usually indicates that they
have fallen off the routine and
didn't want to be embarrassed
by being measured.
There are alot of prizes and
incentives and four weeks left
to get slim and claim some
money or a YMCA member-
ship.
Those who just haven't
been able to get motivated


might want to get into a more
structured program like
Weight Watchers or the
YMCA. My nutridtonist, Diana
Cogburn, coached me a long
time ago that exercise is criti-
cal to good body condition-
ing, including losing weight. It
is best to have 40 minutes of
aerobic exercise, which can
be just a nice, brisk walk.
Get determined and make
it happen; it takes self-disci-
pline, which is the hardest
,thing of all.

The United Way appeal is
at $485,000, well on on the
way to busting over its
$525,000 goal. What. a differ-.
ence it will make for 24 agen-
cies. Mike Pachota of
Sharky's gave $1,234 from a
United Way Day, and the fun
Valentine's Party at Harbor-
Chase brought in more than


$500. If you have a business
that would like to help United
Way, give me a call at 207-
1000 and I'll help promote it
for you.

Meeting with FEMA about hurricane funds gets testy


Members of the Florida congressional delegation
question where money has gone and why so little
seems to be going to hurricane victims in this
area.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

After months of arguing,
debating and begging, a
meeting designed to soothe
angry Florida' counties did
anything but.
The Florida congressional
delegation actually went so
far Wednesday as to threaten,
to pull funding and launch an
investigation into the agency,
which has dragged its feet in
helping the counties slam-
med by, the hurricanes of
2004.
The Florida congressional
delegation made their tough
stand in a meeting with
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency in Washington,
D.C., to discuss the slow pace
at which money has flowed
from the agency in the wake
of the hurricanes.
The meeting also included
a large group from the Florida
Association of Counties that
was in Washington for a na-
tional meeting and to press
the issue of how serious the
situation is as FEMA repay-
ment delays stress the fi-
nances of devastated coun-
ties across the state.
"There is an inordinate
amount of frustration," said
U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, R-
Sarasota. "We are all upset
and the discussion got very
heated."
The congressional mem-
bers said they would investi-
gate FEMA and the spending
of money, namely $8.5 billion
in emergency funds that was
specifically designated for


hurricane relief.
Daniel Craig, FEMA direc-
tor of the recovery division,
told the group the money was
for disaster relief, 1not just
hurricane relief.
"That got us very upset,"
Harris said. "We know that
money was for hurricane vic-
tims and we believed they
would pay that. They have
not."
Craig was
told Congress
would hold
back continu- i
ing resolution
funding until .. -W
they got some
answers.
"That's the
absolute Harris
truth," Harris
said. "We will
do it because we want to
know where that money is."
'Taxpayer revolt'
U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, R-
Palm Beach Gardens, ex-
pressed his
own frustra-
tion, saying it
will be ex-
tremely diffi- '
cult to sup-
port a billion-
dollar tsuna-
mi relief pack-
age for foreign
nations when Foley
his own con-
stituents are going bankrupt
or when localities throughout
Florida are not seeing relief
from storms which hit several
months ago.
"There will be a taxpayer


revolt in my district," Foley
said. "It has become ludicrous
to tell my neighbors, friends
and constituents that mis-
communication or just inept
bureaucracy has stood in the
way of getting them the mon-
ey they need."
"I was very impressed with
our delegation, and kind of
proud of them," said Bob He-
bert, Charlotte County's di-
rector of recovery, who was in
Washington as part of the
Florida Association of Coun-
ties delegation. "They didn't
want to hear about regula-
tions and rules and proce-
dures."
James Mcintyre, a FEMA
spokesman who also attend-
ed the meeting, described the
meeting .as an exchange
between the agency and the
state representatives that was
informative and a continua-
tion of ongoing discussions
on numerous issues.
"Everyone expressed their
position," McIntyre said.
He also said the agency
understands the frustration
of the Florida representatives
with the agency.
"In any disaster, any delay
in the recovery process cre-
ates a certain level of frustra-
tion," he said. "That is under-
stood, .and we try to assist
them in alleviating it."
Tapped out
Few of the Florida delega-
tion would agree the agency
is doing much other than get-
ting people angry.
Hebert said the agency's
bureaucracy is not only re-
stricting cash flow for coun-
ties like Charlotte, but threat-
ening the financial solvency,
of smaller counties like Har-
dee, DeSoto, Escambia and
others.
"We've spent over $50 mil-


lion already $35 million of
that on debris removal alone
- and we've only gotten $8.2
million back from FEMA so
far," he'said.
"We just started doing pri-
vate debris pickup ... and
that'll be another $8 million
to $10 million expense for us,"
he added.
The county has $30 million
in invoices already pending
and there have been numer-
ous rejections recently for lit-
tle details and paperwork is-
sues.
"There's a bunch of little
rural counties that are all
tapped out, and they're in
Danger of. going broke," He-
bert said.
Harris agrees, adding it is
wrong that these counties
have to wait while Miami got
millions it should never have
received.
Point made
Another point of conten-
tion presented to FEMA Wed-
nesday was the inconsisten-
cies in enforcing their own
rules.
Bridget Walsh, a deputy for
legislative affairs for U.S. Sen.
Bill Nelson,. D-Fla., said in-
consistent advice in Florida
has affected the timeframe
for reimbursement.
"FEMA has the ability to
reimburse for private land
and has never responded or
explained why this is not hap-
pening now," Walsh said.
"They couldn't explain it.
Some of these counties were
told, 'If you do this, we will
give you money.' After they've
already done it they would
hear back, 'No, that was in-
correct.'"
Harris said the state and
counties took FEMA at its
word for what is being reim-
bursed and now they are get-


ting different answers.
"We are going back to see
how they did that and if it is
not clear, we want to clarify
this problem," she said.
After a long day, Hebert
was satisfied the delegation
got its point across to Craig
and FEMA as a whole.
"They said they'd intro-
duce legislation to make


them do what they're sup-
posed to be doing if they have
to, and I'm feeling much bet-
ter today," he said. "I'm very
optimistic they'll do that."

County work at Pocono Trails Preserve Site


Sarasota County has sched-
uled several tasks during
February at the Pocono Trails
Preserve site for the beautifi-
cation, maintenance and se-
curity of the preserve. Ap-
propriate permits have been
obtained.
Project tasks include: in-
stallation of a perimeter fence
for benefits of site protection
and dumping prevention;
removal of a small number of
trees to provide the necessary
site preparation for fence
installation and future mow-
ing maintenance; the removal
of several interior trees near
the future picnic area and on
the trail; and installation of a
culvert on the east side of the
property to provide access
for future mowing mainte-
nance along the perimeter of
the site.
Pocono Trails Preserve is
located in Venice. The affected
areas are from U.S. 41 east on
Pocono Trail Road to Bitner
and north along Bitner.
For more information, call
Natural Resources at (941)
861-6230.
Manasota Scrub
Preserve to reopen
The 145-acre Manasota
Scrub Preserve in North
Englewood will reopen to the
public at 2 p.m., Thursday,
Feb. 24, during a grand-open-
ing ceremony.
The program will include
guest speakers and exhibits
explaining land management
activities that are occurring
on the property. Sarasota
County's Natural Resources
staff will lead nature walks
highlighting the landscape
and the wildlife within the
preserve. Refreshments will
be served.
This property was one of
the first acquired through the
county's Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Protection
Program that began in 1999.
The preserve will be open for
nature-based recreation and
environmental programming
during daylight hours
throughout the year.
Youth program
receives $43,500 grant
The Community Youth
Development Project has re-
ceived a grant of $43,500 from
the Bank of America Client
Foundation/Merrill Cliotelly
Fund to support the Students
Taking Active Roles in gov-
ernment leadership training
program.
The funds will be used to
provide administrative sup-
port for this nationally rec-
ognized program, which en-
gages youth as civic leaders in
Sarasota County.
The STAR Leadership
Training was formed in 2000
to create a model of engaging
youth in their community,
and has since been replicated
in communities across the
country. During the last three
years, 179 youth have com-
pleted .the training, with 92
percent remaining in the
program until graduation
from high school.
The Community Youth
Development Project is a col-
laboration of youth and adults
committed to improving the
lives of teens. CYD offers over
100 positive drug- and alco-
hol-free activities for middle
and high school youth each
year through a coalition of
nonprofit agencies in Sarasota
County. It is funded in part
through grants from Sarasota
County Government, and the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County.

ence. John "Buck" O'Neil,


who spent his youth in
Sarasota, was a star in the

Sarasota County steps

up for fitness relay


STAFF REPORT


Spring-like weather drew
hundreds of fitness enthusi-
asts and others motivated to
become more physically ac-
tive to participate in the
Sarasota County leg of the
Step Up Florida relay event on
Wednesday.
Step Up Florida is a state-
wide event promoting physi-
cal activity arid healthy life-
styles. This event also show-
cases the numerous opportu-
nities that Florida offers citi-
zens and visitors to be physi-
cally active.
In the local event, Sarasota
County residents walked, bik-
ed, ran, kayaked, aerobicized,
swam, skated and even sal-
saed to Latin-dance music as
a fitness flag was moved along
over 40 miles of roadways,
waterways and scenic byways
throughout the county.
Public officials from the
cities of North Port, Vepice
and Sarasota and Sarasota
County joined in with the
reading of proclamations
dedicated to Step Up Flor-
ida.
"We believe that this com-
munity-wide effort created an
impetus for people of all ages
to make physical activity a
lifestyle while promoting the
physical activity opportuni-
ties in this county," said Dr.
Sandra MacLeod, executive
director of the county's health
department.
Participants carrying the
Step Up Florida flag bicycled
from North Port's Dallas
White 'Park to the Venice
YMCA to showcase an aero-
bic dance and stretching class
in process.
Several bicyclists then car-


ried the flag to Venice's
Hecksher Park where fitness
enthusiasts joined in a walk-
ing and tennis demonstra-
tion. Kayakers continued the
journey through Sarasota Bay.
On to Orlando
Faculty, staff and students
at Sarasota County district
schools took a pause in their
schedule for a mid-morning
fitness activity.
Fitness opportunities
were highlighted during vis-
its to the YMCA in Venice,
and at the Evalyn Sadlier
Jones and Frank Berlin
branches of the Sarasota
Community YMCA.
Other stops included Out-
of-Door Academy, where a
physical education class was
in progress, and Arlington
Park in Sarasota, where the
swimming program was
highlighted.
Bicyclists and runners con-
tinued to carry the flag past
the Sarasota/Payne Park skate
park and then to Senior
Friendship Center, where lo-,
cal seniors invited passers-by
to join in their salsa/Latin
dance party.
Sarasota County Health
and Human Services Execu-
tive Director Bill Little led a
large group of people on a 1-
mile walk along Sarasota's
bayfront to the closing cere-
monies, which included a fit-
ness exhibition from mem-
bers of Girls Inc. and the read-
ing of a proclamation by
county commission chair
Paul Mercier.
Following the closing cere-
monies, cyclists carried the
flag toward Manatee County
for the next leg of the journey
to Orlando.

POLICE BEAT


Increase in traffic fatalities
Preliminary reports show
that 278 people were killed in


traffic-related crashes during
January. That is an increase of
about 40 percent.


Tips for preventing


business burglary


STAFF REPORT


More than' 60 percent of
business burglaries involve
forcible entry -- but most
business owners probably
don't realize that a quarter of
all forced entry is not through
a door or window, but
through the roof or other ac-
cess.
A recent analysis commis-
sioned by Safe at Work found
that business burglaries cost
Florida businesses $857.8
million a year.
Safe at Work, a coalition
that includes the Florida At-
torney General's Office, crime
prevention advocates and
Sonitrol of Florida, is commit-
ted to educating and provid-
ing employers with the tools
they need to reduce internal
and external crime.
Tips for preventing busi-
ness burglary include:
Lessen the temptation.
Leave on plenty of interior
and exterior lights to increase


visibility in the parking lot
and by the entrances.
Eliminate hiding places.
Trim shrubs in front of any
window to 42 inches; trees to
7 feet.
Check the exterior of
the building for spots where
a criminal might gain ac-
cess.
Make entry to your roof
difficult: Check for entry areas
and secure all ladders and
dumpsters.
Use as few doors as possi-
ble. for employee exit and
entry.
Install a quality, audio-
verified security system and
post decals around the build-
ing in plain sight.
Consider replacing keys
with electronic door-locking
systems that allow the busi-
ness owner to limit access
during specified times.

tips on developing a work-
place security plan, visit:

The report was compiled
by the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, the Florida Sheriffs Asso-
ciation, and the Florida Police
Chief's Association.
"Curbing the rise of traffic
related fatalities occurring in
our state is on the top of our
agenda ... FHP Director
and Venice High School grad-
uate Col. Chris Knight said.
Law enforcement officials
said the single most impor-
tant action motorists can take
to help ensure their safety is
to use their seat belts.
During the recent Christ-
mas holiday, 80 percent of the
drivers and passengers killed
in vehicles equipped with
seat belts were not using
them. That number peaked
during the New Year holiday
period, when more than 90
percent of those killed were
not restrained. ,
Knight is asking the public
for help in reducing the high-
way carnage. Knight said
highway safety is up to each
individual driver.
"Law enforcement cannot
work alone to keep our road-
ways safe," he said. "We must
have the public's help."
Here are some traffic safety
tips:
AlloWenduigh time to, get
to your destination.
Obey the posted speed
limits.
Always use seat belts and
child restraint devices.


Maintain a safe distance.
Obey traffic red lights and
stop signs.
Use turn signals.
Do not consume alcohol:
or drugs and drive.
Drive in the right lane
and pass in the left lane.
Take frequent breaks
when traveling and when
possible, rotate drivers during
extended road trips.
Maintain your vehicle in
good working condition, pay-
ing special attention to brakes
and tires.
Be considerate of others
during your travels.

While this sounds unusual, it's

Last week the first 10 cus-

blue beaded dress was pretty
special. It belonged to Mark's
morn. The dress was 20 years
old and Tamuny kept it all
these years because she-
couldn't part with it. Now the
time came to wear it again.
There is no doubt in my mind,
Mrs. Beebe was looking down

Spectacular omeonview


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


You can't always judge a
book by its cover.
Nor can you judge a house:
byits front elevation.
That is the case with an
interior designer's home in
Calusa Lakes. From the street,
it could be most any recently
built Florida home. Once
inside the foyer, the differ-
ences become obvious.
There is a feeling of space
that goes far beyond the vol-
ume ceilings and what seems
to be an open floor plan in
this 4,693-square-foot, four-
bedroom split plan home.
The basic house was an Ar-
thur Rutenberg model and it
was built by the well-known
home-building firm in 1997.
The similarities end there.
While the floor plan is some-,
what open in that the kitchen
and family room share space


with wide openings to the
dining, living and a bar room,
"seems" is the operative
word. The sheer size of the liv-
ing and dining rooms is what
gives this illusion of open-
ness.
Owners Clair Johnson and
Henry Czerwinski expanded
and modified the basic Ru-
tenberg plan to arrive at a
house that would easily han-
dle 150 guests for a party, con-
tain a kitchen and separate
bar area that could turn out
enough food and drink for
such a crowd, comfortably
house several overnight
guests and provide separate
getaway spaces for the own-
ers. The house also offers
storage and consultation
space that serves the needs of
Johnson's interior design
firm, Clair Johnson Interiors.'
Expanding the space was
the first order of business.
Most of the rooms are nearly


double what one would find
in a standard home, even in
some of the so-called "Mc-
Mansions" sprouting up on
valuable coastal land that
once held modest vacation
cottages. Doors throughout
the house are 8-feet high and
the pocketing sliding doors
between the living room and
lanai, serve to visually expand
both of those areas. There is a
14-foot ceiling in the entry
foyer and 12-foot ceilings in
most of the rest of the house.
The 17-foot by 28-foot din-
ing room easily holds a large
banquet table with seating for
12, extra large buffet and ade-
quate wall space for the own-
ers collection of carved ivory
pictures from the orient. In
keeping with the size of this
and odihe rooms, all the doors
are 8 feet tall and ceilings are
either 12 feet in height or
vaulted.
Even the foyer is big, with


an extra high ceiling framed
in crown molding. The space
is further accented with wall
moldings and some of the
most important art in the
owners' vast collection. At the
right of the entrance is an
especially fine example of silk
and metallic embroidery.
quite likely a multi-year pro-
ject for a skilled needleworker
in China. The needlework is
further enhanced with hand-
made tassels along the bot-
tom and the whole piece is
framed under glass.
The living room measures
in excess of 21 feet by 24 feet
with space for an organ in one
corner. A large Japanese
screen nearly covers the one
to the right of the room's cen-
tral seating area and built-in
cabinets hold objets d'art to
the left. The sliding glass pan-
els at the back of the room
completely pocket to open
the space to the lanai and


pool area.
A 12-foot by 19-foot den is
off the living room at the front
of the house and adjacent to,
the entrance to the master
suite, which features two sep-
arate bathrooms and a bed-
room diat is nearly 14 feet by
25 feet. A large closet/dress-
ing area between the two
bathrooms features three lev-
els of closet rods. A pull-down
pole brings the top clothes
rod down to a handy level and
when released, the entire rod
pops back up into its space.
From the bedroom there is
a near panoramic view to the
back of die pie-shaped yard.
.A nature preserve offers pri-
vacy.
"This is where we spend
most of our time," Johnsoni
said of the 19-foot by 24-foot
10-inch family room, which
has comfortable furniture,

Article on local Green Beret aiding Thailand schools coming


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Wednesday, a former
Green Beret from Venice,
Roscoe Turner, will take off on,
a mission to Thailand, taking
school supplies and money to
help improve schools in rural
Thailand.
Written by longtime Venice
Gondolier Sun correspondent
Alan Johnson, the story of
Turner's involvement will run
on the front of Our Town
Friday, Feb. 25. It is a heart-,
warming story that should
touch the heart of anyone
where good schools are taken
for granted.
He will depart for Thailand


onWednesday, Feb. 23, carry-
ing luggage filled with school
supplies and a check book. If
you would like to help his
cause now before he leaves
on this mission, give him a
call at 497-1788. He can ac-
cept donations of school sup-
plies right up until Tuesday
afternoon. Money can be
contributed .anytime as his
wife will deposit such gifts
here in Venice and he can
draw the money as needed in
Thailand.
Anyone interested in help-
ing with the project can call
497-1788. Turner said, "Any-
one with a valid passport is
welcome to come along. It's
not too late."

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell.
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologisi
Q. I told my doctor that I
have some loss of balance
lately and feel unsteady on
my feet. He suggested I have
my balance evaluated by an
Audiologist. Why? Isn't loss
of balance just part of the
aging process?
A. Loss of balance and
mobility are not inevitable as
we grow older! In a normal
healthy person, the senses of
touch/position, visionn and inner
ear sensors work together in
harmony with the biain. Your
brain is sent information froni
our eyes to tell us if our
environment is moving or not.
Our inner ears tell the brain
where our head is positioned.
Over time a number of factors
to increase your susceptibility
to falling such as taking more
than one medication at a time,
a recent period of bed rest or
inactiity, changes in your
vision and numbness or loss of
sensation in your legs or feet,
Typically, 'falls are not the
result of a single cause but are
often the result of a
combination of factors. For this
reason, it is important that you
be evaluated by an audiologist
who specializes in balance
disorders. The Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing Balance
Centers will work closely with
your physician to ensure a
proper diagnosis. After, the
Audiologist performs tests to
define, the problemr, a:,
customized treatment plan can
be developed' which will
provide the best benefits. Call

Termite season is under way


BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER


Just when the. last debris
from Hurricane Charley has
been picked up and the rats
have moved on, along comes
a warning from the state agri-
culture commissioner:
Termites, Charles Bronson
said, are on the way.
"This is the. time of year
when termites begin to
swarm or leave their colonies
to search for new'nesting
sites," Bronson said.
Many homeowners, he
said, discover they have a ter-
mite problem only after find-
ing discarded wings or seeing
the wood-eaters swarming.
That might be too late to pre-


vent serious damage.
"Termites can. cause con-
sumers to lose their largest
asset their homes and
are responsible for more than
$700 million in costs each
year in Florida for damage
and control," Bronson wrote
in his warning.
He suggested homeowners
employ a pest control compa-
ny to provide termite protec-
tion services.
Florida has two main types
of termites: subterranean,
which live in the ground and
attack structures from the
ground up, and drywood,
which can live in pieces of
wood in a structure and go
undetected until extensive
damage has been done.


A particularly nasty sub-
species of the subterranean
termite is called the Formos-
an. This termite, native only
,to Asia, turned up in Char-
leston, S.C., in the 1960s and
has since spread throughout
the Southeast.
The first Florida discov-
ery of the voracious wood-
eater was the destruction of
a condominium eaten in
Hallendale in the 1980s.
Since then, Formosan ter-
mites have been found in
both Charlotte and Lee
counties.
The University of
Florida says once the ter-
mite moves into an area,
it "has never been eradi-
cated from that area."


A use for fire'ants
I The university says the
Formosan termite is the most
economically destructive of all
termite varieties. Its march
around the state has been slow
but sure. By 1985, it was found
in Orlando and the Pensacola
area. In 1991, well-established
infestations were discovered in
Tampa.
"Studies also found that
(Formosan termites) attack
many species of living plants,"
the university writes on its Web
site. "(They) attack structural
lumbers and living plants
because they are sources of cel-
lulose.
"However, this termite is also
known to attack noncellulose
materials such as plaster, plas-


tic, asphalt and thin sheets of
soft metal (lead or copper) in
search of food and moisture.
Their highlypublicized abilityto
penetrate solid concrete is a fal-
lacy. However, the Formosan
termite is persistent in finding
small cracks in concrete which
they enlarge and use as foraging
routes."
Formosans love wet wood
and can set up colonies be-
neath leaking roofs and in-
side damp walls. They eat liv-
ing trees, being fond of oaks
and pines, and have de-
voured barges and wooden
boats. Formosan termites are
often discovered after a
power failure caused by the
termites eating through elec-
trical cabling.


Their enemy? Fire ants. '
Fortunately, there are'
things that can be done to .
keep termites out of your,
house:
Remove wood piles and"-
other cellulose sources from'"'
under and next to a house,'
Don't pile those sawed-up"
oak logs against your wooden',
house. ,-
Get your house inspected'
each year.
Direct water sources,,
such as air-conditioner drip-
lines and roof downspouts;"
away from the structure's-
foundation.
When purchasing a'
house, check to see if termite -'
protection has been part ofitsi
history.


Environmental and health drawbacks exist with vinyl siding


FROM THE EDITORS OF E/THE
ENVIRONMENTAL MAGAZINE
GUEST COLUMNISTS

Dear EarthTalk: Are there
any environmental or health
drawbacks to putting vinyl sid-
ing on my house? Charles
Leach, via e-mail
Vinyl siding may not pose
identifiable risks once in-
stalled properly on your
home, but its production and
disposal contribute to a wide
range of health and environ-


mental problems. In produc-
ing Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC),
the basic element in all vinyl
products, workers are ex-
posed to a multitude of haz-
ardous chemicals, These in-
clude chlorine gas, which
can cause eye and skin irrita-
tion and breathing difficul-
ties in the short term, and
lung disease, among other
maladies, from prolonged
exposure.
Meanwhile, according to
Greenpeace, the production


process releases other dan-
gerous chemicals, such as
dioxin, into the environment
surrounding PVC factories.
Dioxin nearly wiped out the
bald eagle in the lower 48
states, and it has been linked
to cancer, endometriosis,
neurological damage, im-
mune system damage, respi-
ratory problems, liver and
kidney damage and birth
defects in humans.
Perhaps an even larger
problem is that there Is no


responsible way to dispose of
PVC and vinyl siding at the
end of its life cycle. Landfills
do not knowingly accept it,
as it can pollute groundwater
and result in dioxin-forming
landfill fires. And unfortu-
nately, vinyl cannot be recy-
cled due to the chlorine used
in its production. If mixed
inadvertently into a recycling
load, vinyl will contaminate
everything therein.
Meanwhile, incinerating
vinyl releases poisonous


chlorine gas as well as dioxin
into the air. When a house
with vinyl siding catches fire,
dioxin and other toxic gases
escape into the air, posing an
even greater threat than the
fire itself in some cases. It is
not unusual, firefighters say,
for people trapped in build-
ing fires to die of exposure to
chemically toxic fumes
before the flames actually
reach them. Recently, a vinyl
scrap yard fire forced the
evacuation of 200 people


from aVirginia community,
while another created a
major airborne dioxin hazard -
in Ontario.
"We know enough about :;
the dangers of PVC to begin
to phase it out," said Lois
Gibbs, the founder of the
Virginia-based Center for
Health, Environment &
Justice. "We need to tell cor-,,
porations to protect our
health and environment by

U.S. government offers lots of free consumer information


Dear Savvy Senior,
I'm an 80-year-old current
events buff who still enjoys
leading new things. I also love
to get free stuff. I recently read
that the U.S. government offers
many free publications on dif-
ferent consumer topics and
practical information for older
Americans, but I lost the article.
Do you know about this free
material and how I can get it? -
Looking for Help

Coping with arthritis
Dear Savvy Senior,
Arthritis can be a real pain in
the neck and the knees, fin-
gers, feet, back, hips, ankles.
You get the idea. I have had
severe osteoarthritis for about
15 years now, but I'm managing
pretty well and it hasn't taken
over my life. It did, however,
change it, but my life has been
very productive since my joints
started talking to me. Could you
please do a column on how to
live and cope with arthritis? It
seems like most of us older folks
have a little of it, but for those of

Talking books continue history's oral tradition


If I were to get on a stump
to sell a product, it would not
be snake oil: I would wax elo-
quent about talking books.
I am referring to books on
tape provided by the state of


Florida, the Library of Con-
gress and your county taxes.
These books come free in the
mail in a green case for peo-
ple with visual or other
impairment; in fact, they're
available for all ages. Even the
special tape player comes
through the mail.
At age 91 I am learning a
great deal about history and
literature that I should have
learned earlier and enjoy:
ing some good books in the
process. All I have to do is call
a Venice number (484-0308)
and I will be connected to the
Bradenton library office. In
three or four days I will re-
ceive my books on cassettes.
Since I am almost blind, I


spend many hours a day lis-
tening to books like "Message
in a Bottle," "The Notebook,"
"The Wedding," or the Mit-
ford series.
There are so many good
nonfiction books, too. I espe-
cially like the history books by
Stephen Ambrose. If I want-
ed, I could also get newspa-
pers and magazines on tape.
There is a wonderful wom-
an named Pat Schubert in the
Bradenton office who will

the talking-book service.
Of course, there are books

Guidance for posterity


BY CHARLES D. HAYES
GUEST COLUMNIST


More than 2,000 years ago,
the great Roman orator Marc-
us Tullius Cicero wrote a trea-
tise titled Hortensius, ex-
plaining the value of philoso-
phy in ordinary life. The text,
which .has been lost, was
reportedly so powerful that
people have continued to talk
about it for centuries. The
September of life presents
each of us with an opportuni-
ty to restore Cicero's work.
We can aspire to leave a
Hortensius behind in, any
form or method we choose.
Cicero's legacy was a blue-


print for the path to moral
goodness developing the
abilities to make sound judg-
ments, discern cause and ef-
fect, exercise self-control, and
understand relationships at
an intricate level in order to
enhance them. Our own de-
scendants are going to need
similar guidelines for inspira-
tion and good judgment.
The future our children
and grandchildren face is
simultaneously rich with pos-
sibilities and rife with peril: a
workplace that toils tirelessly
to reinvent itself and a culture
driven by a cyber-wodd bent

HAYES from page 6B
on overriding the autonomy
of individuals. Societal trans-
formations arising from net-
working technologies are
likely to be profound and
unrelenting.
In the 21st century, our off-
spring will need an extraordi-
nary sense of self to embrace
so much potential and so
much uncertainty. In short,
they will need to be much
more open to learning than
their grandparents' genera-
tion.
If we as parents and grand-
parents can know that much
about the future, we can help.
Learning and the residual
knowledge it provides give
human beings a refuge of
inner experience to cushion
the blows of the external
world.
Comparative reflection
moderates our feelings about
people we have come to view
as "others." When we under-
stand something about the
character and motivations of
people of dissimilar cultures,
we are better able to perceive


that they have the same
needs as we do.
Our children and grand-
children are going to live in a
world more multicultural
than earlier generations ever
dreamed of.
They are going to have to
be better at getting along
with others than we ever
were. Part of our legacy
involves helping them pre-
pare for this future. Any way
we can, we need to inspire a
love of learning.
One night recently, I sud-
denly awoke with the answer
to a question I'd long been
sleeping on: What if today,
past 60,1 I had an opportunity
to slip through a fissure in
time, only for a moment, to
advise the person I was at 30?
What if my younger self
had a chance to make a fresh
start and do things differently
than the first time?
Knowing that the quality of
the future was at stake, what
would I say?
My response in a nutshell
came to this:
"Nothing important about
the world can be assumed


from appearances. Nothing is
as it seems. Not the history,
not the politics, not the reli-
gion, not the relationships,
and certainly not your world-
view.
If you believe -that your
daily observations and the
inferences you make from
popular culture are the sole
ramparts of reality, you are
not only mistaken but also
seriously deluded.
Moreover, you and your
society will pay a moral tax
for your indifference, ex-
cised through needless anxi-
ety and an ever-present
potential for misrelating on
a global scale.
"My additional 30 years of
experience have taught me
that appearances are pro-
foundly deceiving. Were that
not the case, there would be
no reason whatsoever to
assume a need for what we
call higher education. Thirty
years ago, when I was most
adamant in my opinions
about the world, my knowl-
edge amounted to little more
than borrowed opinion and
truth by association.


Today, I'm in no position to
declare that I finally, once and
for all, have determined the
nature of things, only that the
way to gain ground in better
understanding the world is to
ask questions. every step of
the way.
"Henry David Thoreau was
of this mind when he said he
wanted to 'live deep and suck
out the marrow of life.' But in
order to get to the marrow
you must look above, be-
neath, behind and beyond
the vistas of popular culture,
regardless of where you live in
the world and whose flag you
salute.
"Learn to the best of your
ability all the rest of your
days, and you may experi-
ence a life rich with raptur-
ous insights."

It is so easy, I have written a

Relaxed and sitting in my

I cherish the talking books
sent free in my care.
Good books seem more

So many novelists and

The beauties of South

ders on the bottom of the sea.

SAVVY .E


us who have lots of arthritis
pain, it's not all bad news. -
Living and Aching
Dear Living,
You're right. For the more
than 20 million Americans
who suffer from osteoarthri-
tis, there are some things that
can help them manage. But,
it's also important to remem-
ber that chronic arthritis
pain varies greatly from per-
son to person. So while these
tips might help some people
manage a little better, it
might not help others at all.
Pain management
Just as there are different
types of arthritis, there are
also different types of pain.
Most sufferers of osteoarthri-
tis find that a combination of
medicine and mild exercise
works best to help deal with
the pain and stay mobile.
However, you should work


with your doctor to create
your own pain management
plan. What works for one
person may not work for
someone else.
Savvy tip
Many people are trying
alternative therapies to help
treat arthritis pain, such as
dietary supplements, acu-
puncture, hydrotherapy or
yoga. For more information
call the National Center for
Complementary and Altern-
ative Medicine at (888) 644-
6226 or visit nccam.nih.gov.
Respect your pain
It's important to listen to
your body, slow down and be
gentle with yourself. Here are
a few extra things to keep in
mind:
Let your largest muscles
do the work. Squat to pick up
an object, or sit in a chair to


bend. To open a heavy door,
lean into it to use your body
weight to help push it open.
Balance rest and activity
and don't over do it. Fatigue
may increase the risk of acci-
dents.-
Distribute the pressure.
Carry heavy loads close to
your body. For groceries, try
using paper bags instead of
plastic. In the kitchen, use
both hands to lift a heavy
pan. Carry a shoulder bag
instead of a handbag.
Diet and exercise. Extra
body weight means extra
strain on the joints. Diet and
'exercise can be a good strate-
gy in lowering the load and
relieving the joints. Talk to
your doctor to determine the
best fitness program for you.
Assistive gadgets
Arthritis can make it diffi-
cult to do many things that


we normally take for
granted, like opening ajar or
cutting a sandwich in-half.
Here are a few handy gadgets
ideas that can help ease
some of those tough house-
hold tasks.
Specially designed cook-
ing tools, knives and eating
utensils that help improve
grip.
Lever-style adapters that
make it easy to turn door
handles and faucets.
Electric jar opener or rub-
ber gripper to open lids.
Power screwdrivers or
ratchets instead of a manual
ones.
Plastic finger loops that
help turn keys in doors and
car ignitions.
Writing aids such as large
grips for pens.and pencils
that help reduce pain.
Assistive tools for bathing
and grooming.


Dressing tools that help in
putting on socks and shoes,
and can assist with buttons
and zippers.
Long-handled reaches for
retrieving items on low or
high shelves.

I've learned so much from
Ted Koppel's Nightline;
Listening is much better
than reading, I find.
Perhaps of all authors who
set fire to our minds,
This is particularly true of
Mark Twain, I find.
The hours I spend with
talking books I treasure -
They have enriched my life
beyond all measure.

STAFF REPORT

New Year's Day 2005
marked the restoration of fine
hospitality to one Central
Florida community, after the
devastation of Hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne this fall.
The Doubletree Hotel Cocoa

announced completion of an
$8 million hotelwide im-
provement project, and cele-
brated by welcoming the first
guest of the newly remodeled
hotel through its doors with
special gifts along with
those legendary, fresh baked
Doubletree chocolate chip

The Doubletree has been
closed to guests since Sept. 5,
and the extensive renovation
of the six-floor, 148-room,
full-service hotel has been
completed on-time and on
target; as Cocoa Beach gears
up to welcome visitors during
the very busy winter tourist

Just as important, owners

commitment to supplement
unemployment benefits re-,
ceived by all employees dur-

gram that ensured each
Doubletree employee receiv-
ed their full regular wages

year of renewed commitment

the Florida Space Coast's
finest hotel experience."

fitness center and a 24-hour
business center are now avail-
able to guests, as well.

If you know where to look,
there are still some "hidden
gems" to be found in Venice.
One of them is the Ronald T.
Hanson Medical Library &
Community Health Infor-
mation Center located on the
first floor of the Venice Re-
gional Medical Center (for-
merly Bon Secours Venice
Hospital).
The library is open to the
general public as well as to
doctors, nurses, other med-
ical professionals, patients
and families. If you want to
know more about a medical
problem, have questions
about a surgical procedure, or
need information about other
related concerns, you are wel-
come to use the resources of
the library to find current
medical, nursing and public
health information.
Two unique features of this
Library & Information
Resource Center are its online
access to professional jour-
nals via the Internet, and its
competent staff, many of
whom have medical back-
grounds and the knowledge
to handle the in-depth
searches often requested by,
physicians on staff and in' the
community.
Medical Librarian Vickie
Hase, M.L.S., M.S., is assisted
by Healthcare Volunteers of
Venice: James Carter, MD,
Frederick Christie, MD, Wil-
liam Coughlin, RPT, Sandra
Davis, Ann Dodderidge, Carol

hoff, Phyllis Trieble, RN, and

Opened in 1996, the com-

Ronald T. Hanson, (for whom
the library is named), who
served Venice Hospital as
president and chief executive
officer from 1964 to 1989.
"I had an inspiration."
Carol remembers. In traveling

available in many of these in-
stitutions. Following the
death of her husband in 1994,

Carol decided to designate
the memorials for him toward
the establishment of a med-
ical library at Venice Hospital.
A committee was formed, and
with the support of the com-
munity, the Hospital Auxiliary
Volunteers, and the Hospital
Foundation, it was only a few
months before enough funds
were accumulated to start the
project.
"Donations came in from
as far away as Hawaii," Carol
recalls. After proving its self-
sufficiency for five years, the
library became part of the
hospital budget.
Today, Carol actively par-
ticipates as a library volunteer
and chairs the Hanson Li-
brary Service for the Health-
care Volunteers of Venice (for-
merly called the Hospital Aux-
iliaryVolunteers).
The library is open week-
days 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more

switching to non-PVC mate-
rials." Gibbs is the house-
wife-turned-activist who
)purred the government into
greatifng its Superfund pro-
gram to clean-up contami-
nated waste sites around the
country after she discovered
that her neighborhood in
Love Canal, N.Y, in 1978 was
located on a 20,000-ton
jh emical waste dump.
'Luckily for concerned
homeowners, safer alterna-
j es to vinyl siding do exist.
According to the organiza-
tion Greenaction, siding
made from wood, fiber-
cement board, or polypropy-
lene is better for the environ-


ment and for human health.
While some of these materi-
als are available at Home
Depot, local stores selling
only green building materials
would offer the best selec-
tion.
Dear EarthTalk: What impact
does mining for diamonds and
other gems have on' the envi-
ronment?- Tiffany Schultz,
Dayton, Ohio
Gem mining around the
world can indeed be very
destructive to the surround-
ing environment, leading to
many problems such as soil
erosion and sedimentation,
water pollution and deple-
tion, poisoning of wildlife


and vegetation, flooding -
-even landslides. The contents
of "mine tailings" -- rock and"
other waste materials sepa-
rated and left behind in the
mining process can wreak
havoc on nearby agricultural
lands, and pose myriad
human health problems.
In the United States, min-
ing companies are legally
obligated to conduct envi-
ronmental impact studies of
proposed sites and then, if
approved by regulators, fol-
low the letter of the law
regarding the protection of
wildlife, air and water, and
the proper disposal of haz-
ardous waste. Furthermore,


many U.S. states have "recla-
madon" laws on the books
calling for the safeguarding
of surface and groundwater
around mining operations,
and cleanup and re-vegeta-
tion after the fact to restore
mining areas to their original
condition.,
But mines outside U.S.
borders are not subject to the
same rules as they are here in
the U.S., even if run by
American companies. Large-
scale demand means large-
scale mining operations, and
that often means massive
amounts of sedimentation
and tailings falling into water
systems around the world.,


The mercury and cyanide
used to separate gold and
copper from rokl aiso make
their way into our air and "
water.
With no country-of-origin
labeling laws or system in the
jewelry and gem trade, con-
sumers can never be sure if
their bracelets, rings and
necklaces come from re-
sponsible sources or from
companies whose mining
operations are polluting,
destroying wildlife habitat,
exploiting poor or indige-
nous people or funding a
civil war, as does the dia-
mond trade in Angola and
Sierra Leone.


Obtaining jewels does not
have to be a destructive'
proposition. People have
been finding valuable gems
and minerals for centuries by
panning for themselves in
rivers and streams. There are
even "theme parks," such as
Gold City, in Franklin, N.C.,
that let you "mine your own
gemstones." And companies
such as Junk to Jewels and
Snooty Jewelry sell jewelry
made from recycled materi-
als, handmade beads and
glass. Another company,
Global Marketplace, sells a
range of jewelry made by
artists in developing coun-
tries.

A table for 12 easily fits in the formal dining room, which measures a stately 17 feet by 30 feet.


Hand-woven braids, decorator fabrics and neutral colors create a relaxing, somewhat formal
master bedroom.


treasured art work, a large-
screen TV and fireplace. Like
the living room, it opens to
the lanai and pool area.
As we walked toward the
back of the family room, he
showed me the home's bar
room, with storage for
enough glasses for most of
those 150 guests this house
can accommodate. The area
is all white, backed with
shelving and cabinets. The
side wall is hung with still
more pieces of the residents'
extensive art collection.
"This is where everyone
always gathers when we have
a party," Johnson said.
The bar is equipped with a
wet sink, ice maker and refrig-
erator, Corian counters and
glass shelving.
Beyond the bar is a pool
bath, which also functions as
a separate bath for one of the
guest bedrooms on that side
of the home. A door opens to
the pool and lanai from the
bath. Sliding doors open the
bar area to the pool deck.
There are two guest bed-
rooms, an additional full
bath, linen storage, studio
and workshop on that side of
the house, plus a spacious
laundry room and a long hall-
way with closets along one
side. A special closet that
opens to this same hallway is
deep enough to hold a fully
decorated Christmas tree and
was used for that purpose
until recently. With plans to
move, the owners have disas-
sembled the tree and packed
the ornaments in boxes,
which still fit easily within the
space. Still more storage in
the nearby laundry room
makes that room function al-
most as an additional pantry
area for the kitchen. White
Corian counters, mirror back
splash areas and high-gloss
white laminate cabinets de-
fine the kitchen, which con-
tains main and prep sinks
with disposers; a built-in
Subzero refrigerator, five-
burner glasstop stove, micro-
wave, convection and .con-
ventional ovens, warming
drawer and instant hot water
maker.


A new zone heating and
air-conditioning system was
installed last year.
The systems are important
for the protection of the art
collection assembled by Czer-
winski, a longtime interior
designer. In addition to fram-
ed silk embroideries from the
Orient, there is a collection of
framed works made of carved
ivory in the dining room, a
large Japanese screen that is a
focal point in the bedroom, a
variety of prints and paintings
and statuary.
Czerwinski has been col-
lecting oriental art since his
early days as an interior de-
signer in the Midwest, he
said.
Custom fabric treatments
coordinate with the oriental
art and are a specialty of this
designer. In the master bed-
room, three benches at the
foot of the king-sized bed are
trimmed with matching
braid. Similar braid trim has
been used on the spread. The
color scheme is neutral and
soothing, yet made to pop
with dark lampshades.
While neutral colors pre-
dominate in the house and
serve to unify the rooms, the
guest bath is a little different,
yet part of the total package. It
is a study in blue and white
with two framed blue pen and
ink doodles on the wall, and
twin silver towel baskets on
the Corian counters.
That room probably best
exemplifies the surprises to
be found in this designer's
home. Not only much larger
than one would expect,from
the front elevation, the super-
sized home remains cozy and
livable, while entertaining the
eye with museum-quality
items juxtaposed with doo-
dles.
The house is located at
2040 Timucuma Trail, within
Calusa Lakes, in Nokomis. It
has been listed for sale with
Dee Gomber of Richard Brad-
way & Associates. The owners
are moving to a smaller 3,500-
square-foot home nearby,
downsizing by the equivalent
of an average-sized Florida
home in the process.
There will be an open
house today, Sunday, Feb. 20,


1-4 p.m. at the house. From
Laurel Road, take Mission
Valley Boulevard to Calusa
Lakes Country Club. Turn left
on Talucca Trail just past the
clubhouse. The house will be
on the right. For more infor-
mation, call Gomber at (941)
484-6004 or 497-6356.


The exterior of this Calusa
Lakes house looks much like
any other recently built
Florida home. Within the
front doors is a big surprise.

" id back here...

Sknow all of our

neighbors.

l,.'> V *'fri rends."

June Convey, owner
June's Island Emporium


On Dec. 1, 1973, Don
Morgan had an idea: to
restore what was at the time
the former Kentucky Military
Institute's winter campus.
In collaboration. with
David Farley, John Farley and
William Gunter, Morgan
began the daunting task of
restoring the three-story
building located at 250 W.
Tampa Ave. in Venice.
The result was the Venice
Centre Mall, which still flour-
ishes today. Twenty-one retail
shops line a 285-foot-long
mall corridor. The second and
third floors of the building are
private residential condo-
miniums.
The building was con-
structed in 1926 as the San
Marco Hotel and existed as a
hotel until 1932, when it was
leased to the Kentucky
Military Institute for use as
the school's winter campus by
then-school owner Col.
Charles Fowler. The school.
closed in 1973 as a result of
* diminished enrollment.
Photographs and other
memorabilia of I\II line the
first-floor retail area of the
building, which today houses
boutiques selling jewelry,
clothes, antiques and col-
lectibles. There are also sever-
al service businesses includ-
ing hair salons, a massage
salon and a restaurant.
Jay Goodley of Goodley
Entertainment Inc. operates
his business booking talent
for weddings and other social
functions from Tampa to Fort


Myers out of the mall.
Goodley, who bought two
of the first retail units avail-
able in 1974, enjoys having
his business in the historic
building.
"It's a class' act," said
Goodley referring to the mall.
In 1974 Goodley's first busi-
ness in the mall was a music
store.
June Convey, who moved
to Venice in 1988 from
Massachusetts, owns and
operates June's Island
Emporium, which sells
clothes and accessories. June
began her business in the
Centre Mall in 2000.
"I was in the craft business
and always wanted to own a
store," said Convey.
Convey chose the mall to
open her business because
"it's laid back here ... \ve know
all of our neighbors. We're
friends." -
Jim Stape. owns the only
restaurant in the mall, Le Petit
Jardin, which has been open
since 1976 under the same
name and only one previous
owner, Gail Dempsey.
Shoppers seem to pass the
abundance of KIll memora-
bilia on the walls of the long
corridor ivithout noticing it
among the 21 shop windows
filled with clothes, jewelry 1
and other items for sale.
A utiliry closet still has a
door frame covered with thdie
names of some of the cadets
who attended the institute
during its 37-year history.
