New hurricane law would target builders


-Venice threatens jail, fines and loss of business
license if contractors fail to secure work sites
,during approaching storms.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Stacks of roof tiles and ply-
wood sheets have become
part of Florida's landscape,
marking the housing boom
that never seems to end.'
Those items took on new
meaning after three hurri-
canes came rumbling across
Southwest Florida last sum-


mer. Instead of signifying
growth, loose tile and wood,
mean death and destruction
as storm winds turned them
into missiles.
Venice City Council wants
to be the first area city to hold
building contractors ac-
countable. Nlembers will vote
on a new law forcing contrac-
tors to secure all materials
within 24 hours of a hurri-


cane watch or risk stiff fines,
jail or even losing their busi-
ness license.
That doesn't sit well with
Home Builders Association of
Sarasota County.
"\Ve understand their con-
cern for public safety, but I
think cherry picking the con-
struction industry for debris
is a little bit unfair." HBA,
Executive Vice President
Dickson Clements said. "De-
bris is debris, regardless of the
source."
Venice would be the first
municipality to pass such a
law in Sarasota County if


council members approve it.
County commissioners are
scheduled to consider a near-
ly identical ordinance March
15.
The idea
Directors of government
building departments all
gathered for a meeting fol-
lowing last year's hurricanes,
according to Paul Radauskas,
building official for Sarasota
County. The group discussion
was sparked by the massive
destruction in Charlotte
County.
"We said we think we need


to do something about po-
tential debris," Radauskas,
said. "this is what we've
learned from Charlotte Coun-
ty after watching Hurricane
Charley. We all essentially'
accepted the same language.
We wanted it to be uniform."
So far, only Venice and
Sarasota County have drafted
ordinances that now are up
for approval. Radauskas has-
n't heard back from Longboat
Key, Sarasota city or North
Port.
As far as Cleiments knows,
no other community in Sara-
sota or Charlotte counwes is


drafting hurricane debris
laws.
HBA's biggest issue is that
the requirement applies only
to the licensed contractor in
charge of a job; Such a safety
ordinance should target every
property or business, not just
construction sites, Clements
said.
"Everyvkind of business has
material that very easily can
become a projectile in that
type of storm," he said. "To
target the construction in-
dustry with this is just unfair."

commission



scrambles



to save house

The new owner has given the city until March 30
to take the 1896 home off his hands and his

A welcome center. A bed-

flow for city hall offices.
All these and more were
ideas floated by the Venice
Historical Commission dur-
ing a special meeting Friday
called to search for ways to
save the oldest home in
Venice, and one of the oldest
in all of Sarasota County.
The new owner has offered
to donate the building to
Venice as long as it pays to
relocate the house at 811
Laguna Drive. The pioneer-

Gary Pilitari, the new own-

on that lot, which is across the
street from Roberts Bay.
"All of the people involved
in the transaction would pre-
fer a public ownershipi" Dan
Heschrneyer, real estate agent
for Pilitari, said to conmis-
sion members.
"With a private (owner), we

lean hard on city council to

One critical in bicycle-truck accident
(Left) Sarasota County Deputy McConnell comforts a woman who was accompanying Ernest Devoe of Bradenton on a
bike ride in Nokomis Saturday afternoon when he was struck by a truck driven by Julio Rodriguez, 44, of Bradenton.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol press release, Devoe was northbound on U.S. 41 near Citrus Avenue when the left
pedal of his bicycle struck the right rear of the truck as he was passing it. The impact threw him into the path of the
truck. The release states that Rodriguez stopped as quickly as possible but Devoe's legs were caught under the front tires
of the truck. He was taken by Bayflite to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg, where he was listed in stable but criti-
cal condition at press time. Charges are pending. (Right) The woman looks at the bicycles as she is led from the scene.

State park willing to contribute to rails-to-trails project
*~~ ~~~~ ?" ^ -


Sarasota County recently acquired a 12.4-mile
rail corridor between State Road 72 and Venice.
The Florida Department of Transportation wants
to buy it for "future multi-modal purposes,"
while environmental officials want to protect a
2-mile portion through Oscar Scherer State Park.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
Florida parks officials are
prepared to offer Sarasota
County money for a 2-mile
portion of the former railroad
corridor that passes through
Oscar Scherer State Park, plus
some construction funds for.
a recreational trail system
and management services.
"The state Parks Service
and Department of Environ-
mental Protection wants to sit
with the county and discuss
how we can partner in build-
ing that portion of the recre-
ational trail," said Linda Long,
a parks service spokesperson.
On Monday, Long told the
Pelican Press that Albert
Gregory, a parks planner, had
voiced the agency's desire to
co-own, fund and help man-
age part of the 12.4-mile rail
corridor the county purchas-
ed late last year from CSX
Transportation.
"Mr. Gregory spoke with
a county project manager
named Jim Harriot, commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton and Dep-
uty County Administrator
David Bullock," she said.
"These conversations went
on all last week. We look for-
ward to open discussions
about options on some key
points."
So far, state environmental
and parks officials have been
barred from closed-door ne-
gotiations that could result in
a county sale of the corridor
to the Florida Department of
transportation, a deal that
would allow a 30-foot-wide
portion to be used by- the


county for its trail.
"We -can't force our way
into those negotiations,"
Long said, "but the state Park
Service staff wants to meet
with the county staff, express
our intent to buy a portion of
the corridor, and discuss how
we can perpetually manage
it in partnership as 'a recre-
ational trail."
Worried
In December, the county
paid $11.75 million to buy
the 12.4-mile corridor from
CSX Transportation through
the nonprofit Trust for Public
Lands. A linear park for.
county bikers, hikers and jog-
gers has been in the works
for 15 years.
But the Department of
Transportation has agreed to
reimburse $11.75 million to
the county for an agreement
that would allow 70 feet. of
the 100-foot-wide corridor to
be used for "future multi-
modal" purposes, such as a
light-rail commuter train or a
road.
Parks -officials are under-
standably worried that a busy
light-rail system or limited
access road could disturb
endangered Florida scrub
jays and other wildlife, and
limit the ability of rangers to
conduct controlled burns
that are necessary to keep
the land in pristine condition.
They are not alone.
"I have no intention of
supporting a sale of the cor-
ridor to the Department of
Transportation 6r Depart-
ment of Environimental Pro-
tection (which runs the Parks

passes through Oscar Scherer State Park.


Service)," Thaxton said. "We
can build the trail in a timely
manner. I don't think selling
is a good idea."
Second thoughts
Last June, before taking
ownership of the corridor,
the county commission saw
a way to recapture the pur-
chase price when it autho-
rized .a joint participation
sales agreement with the
Department of Transporta-


tion for future use of the old
railroad corridor.
Second thoughts about
terms of the agreement began
to surface when commission-
ers questioned "future multi-
modal uses" language con-
tained in a contract attach-
ment and suggested it could
restrict the county's ability to
properly construct a recre-
ational trail. ,
Exhibit "A" of the agree-
ment states: "It is understood


by both parties that any rec-
reational trail built in the cor-
ridor must be constructed to
one side of the corridor leav-
ing at least 70 percent of the
corridor for future multi-
modal purposes."
Thaxton said that's a bad
idea.
"Single, contiguous owner-
ship with one management
plan is desirable," he said.
"Why give ownership to a
state agency that is essentially


a road construction firm?
Many people will contribute
to this trail project if we build
it ourselves."
The Department of Trans-
portation has. put $4 million
into an escrow account for
purchase of the corridor. It
will continue to make annual
deposits over the next twq
fiscal years, until such time
as either $11.75 million has
accrued or the county de-
cides it won't take the money.

Wal-Mart SuperCenter in Osprey to be open Aug. 1


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

The raising of the new
Osprey Wal-Mart is an exam-
ple of what billions of dollars
;and a cast of thousands can
'do in a short time.
"They are scheduled to be
open by Aug. 1," Osprey Civic
Association President Judy
Johnson said.
j The nation's largest dis-
,count retailer broke ground
in February, developer Henry
jRodriguez said.
"They are the most amaz-
|ingly efficient organization I
have ever seen," Rodriguez
said. "Their subs (subcontrac-
tors) can move dirt faster than
,anybody I've ever seen."
Rodriguez is the CEO of
,Sarasota County Develop-
nent Corporation, which-
'owned the 21-acre parcel that
tWal-Mart bought just north of
.dhe Osprey Post Office on U.S.
:41.
Johnson said some of the
walls are up, turn lanes are in,
,and the company has put in
;three retention ponds.
Rodriguez said a Sarasota
!County building inspector he
imet on site put it best.
* "He was looking at these
;massive machines moving
:dirt faster that he had ever
seen," Rodriguez said. "He
,looked at me and said, 'Even if
they're doing it wrong (which
they were not), they're fasci-
nating to watch.'"
Good neighbor
Rodriguez said the only
reason there is no around-
l


the-clock construction is
because of respect for the
neighbors.
He also said the Osprey
Wal-Mart is an example of
what can be accomplished
when a developer, large cor-
poration and a community
work together.
This will be a Wal-Mart
SuperCenter with all the bells
and whistles, Rodriguez said.
"It has enhanced buffering,;
a five-step facade, Spanish
architecture, a color scheme
featuring earth tones, berms,
20-foot lighting as opposed to
the usual 40-foot poles -
everything has been done in
an upscale manner."
Bring it on
A separate but integral part
of the Wal-Mart project is a
"New Urbanist" village con-
ceived by Rodriguez on 44
acres of adjacent land he
owns.
Rodriguez said construc-
tion on the village is sched-
uled to begin about the same
time Wal-Mart opens.
New Urbanism, the cur-
rent wave in growth manage-
ment circles, favors develop-
ments with commercial, retail
and residential uses mixed
together with a lot of open
space.
"There will be a town cen-
ter, 50 small shops, a 25,000-
square-foot library,, post
office, Bay Street Park and
public transportation," Rod-
riguez said.
Meanwhile
A few miles south near


Wal-Mart, which broke ground only last month for its new Osprey SuperCenter, is scheduled to open the store Aug. 1 proving
once again that unlimited resources help get the job done.


Shamrock Boulevard and U.S.
41 in South Venice, there is
another example of what a
bottomless bank account and
a gene pool of the nation's
most skilled construction
workers can accomplish in a
few short months.


Construction crews are,
making fast work of one of the
largest stores to enter Venice,
Lowe's' Home Improvement
Center. The 119,000-square-
foot store will have a 25,000-
square-foot garden center.
"The store is targeted for a


late summer opening," spokes-
person Jennifer Smith said.
One hundred seventy-five
people will be recruited in
this area for full-time posi-
tions.
Lowe's is a $26-billion re-
tailer that started 59 years


ago. It serves 7 million cus-
tomers a weekin its 875 stores
in 45 states.
Florida has 70 Lowe's
stores.

County transportation planning manager: 'Killer Korner' finally due for fixes


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The largest turnout of resi-
dents at a monthly meeting of
the Osprey Revitalization
Committee in several months
drawn, no doubt by dis-
!emination of the meeting
,agenda noisily expressed
,the community's disbelief in
:the promises of Sarasota
?County to correct the prob-
lems of a dangerous intersec-
ution on U.S. 41 at Blackburn
,Point Road and Old Venice
,Road.
SOne person shouted at
,representatives of the county
Public Works Department,


"Do we have to get more peo-
ple killed before you people
do anything about this?"
The' intersection, called
"Killer Korner" by residents,
has been the subject of a con-
stant vocal outcry since early
2003. The meeting heard.
some remind public works
staffers that relief has been
promised since then on sev-
eral occasions.
"No question, this situa-
tion should have been cor-
rected by now," admitted
Sage Kamiya, county trans-
portation planning manager.
"But we are ready to go."
Kamiya and Mollie Wil-
liams, sidewalk program co-


ordinator, told the committee
the design of street lights and
sidewalks has been complet-
ed. They expect contracts to
be let in June and construc-
tion to begin in August. Ka-
miya estimated the project
will be completed in October.
Fourth pole
Fatalities have occurred at
the intersection, according to
the Office of Traffic and
Engineering. It studied traffic
accidents in 2002 on U.S. 41
between Bay Street south to
the intersection. One hun-
dred sixty-five accidents in-
volving 344 vehicles took
place over a six-year period.


Last year, two persons were
killed in a two-vehicle colli-
sion at the intersection.
Construction at the inter-
section will include the addi-
tion of'a fourth pole to hold
cable connecting all traffic
lights.
Kamiya said that left-turn
options will be provided for
two directions. Vehicles mov-
ing east on Blackburn Point
. Road will be able to turn left
(northbound) onto U.S. 41.
Vehicles on Old Venice Road
moving west will be able to
turn left also (southbound)
onto U.S 41. Currently, no
such signals exist. Drivers
must depend on the courtesy


and vigilance of other drivers
to move safely through the
intersection.
Gimme a sign
'Although the county is
responsible for maintaining
U.S. 41, according to Kamiya,
the road belongs to Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion. FDOT must approve the
promised changes before
they can go into effect.
This condition prompted
an outcry from those at the
meeting. They demanded
temporary relief in the
months between now and the
anticipated completion of the
project.


"Can't you erect signs that ,
warn drivers of the dangers at

Leland of the committee. ,
Kanmiya promised to ask
personnel for an opinion.
Sidewalks and street light-
ing will be built from the in-
tersection north to Bay Street
on Old Venice Road as part of
the project, according to Wil-
liams.
Kamiya blamed reductions
in staff, last summer's storms
and concern that the road-
way of U.S. 41 could struc-
turally withstand such storms
as the causes of the most
recent delays in improving
the intersection.

Venice Fishing Pier




finally gets a bait shop


Other council agenda items include killing off a
tax exemption, more condominiums on the island
and final zoning approval for shopping center.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Anglers rejoice! Venice
Fishing Pier will finally get a
bait shop.
Issues of water supply and
fire codes prevented con-
struction of a bait shop on the
new fishing pier, which re-
opened last September after
a $2.4 million replacement
project.
The bait shop was re-
designed to meet fire codes
because it did not allow
enough exit space for people
to get off the pier in an emer-
gency. The redesign also al-
lows the shop to use existing
water supplies instead of
needing new lines.
Venice Fishing Pier's reno-
vation was paid with a voter-
approved bond, passed last
November. Its height was
raised from 12 to 20 feet
above the water, the concrete
pilings were reinforced and
the deck replaced with a re-
cycled plastic-wood material
to reduce maintenance costs.
Cost of bait shop construc-
tion is $40,000, and Coastal
Marine Construction will han-
dle the project. Approval of
city council at Tuesday's
regular meeting is required
for work to begin.
Tax exemption gone
(The final reading of an ord-
inance to repeal a tax ex-
emption on the first 50 kilo-
watt hours of eleccricily will


be heard. This means elec-
tricity users will no longer get
a tax break on their first 50
KW as of Oct. 1.
Members unanimously ap-
proved the measure on first
reading without discussion,
despite one resident telling
them it penalizes low-income
families and poor people
who fight to keep their elec-
tricity bills low.

MEETING TIME
Venice City Council meets at
4 p.m. Tuesday, later than its
regular time of 1:30 p.m.,
because members will be in a
closed-door session discussing
settlement options with the
Environmental Protection
Agency. A criminal investiga-
tion into actions of the waste-
water division of the utilities
department has been on-
going for three years.


New coridos coming
Even -before the land use
map gets amended, develop-
ers already are asking for
rezoning of a property on the
island to build a new two-
story condominium at 649
Guild Drive. Renaissance
Group of Venice wants the,
area rezoned so it can build
the 16-unit condominium
complex to replace eight res-
idential buildings that now
sit dhere.
But for any rezoning to be


granted, that type of zoning
must be listed on the future
land use map of the city's
comprehensive plan. The 649
Guild Drive property is ac-
tually slated to be zoned
down to low density residen-
tial instead of moving up to
medium density.
The difference is in the
number of living units per
acre 13 units as it is now
to 18 units under the pro-
posed zoning. The future
land use map must be amend-
ed to allow the requested
zoning, otherwise the zoning
would have to be decreased
at nine units per acre or less,
In reality, the developer is
asking for both at the same
time: the comprehensive
plan change and rezoning. On
the published city council
agenda, however, the rezon-
ing request appears first.
Planning commission
unanimously approved the
request. The two-story corido
would be on 1.13 acres of
land at Guild, Fairway and
Golf drives.
Other items
Also on Tuesday's agenda:
Venice Triathlon -
Venice YMCA requests council
approval for a triathlon from
7:30-11 a.m. Sept. 4. Proceeds
would benefit Venice YMCA
and Venice Area Beautifica-
tion Inc. Organizers are ask-

trol.
New shopping center -
Final approval to rezone 65.4
acres at the intersection of
Laurel and Pinebrook roads

CITY NOTES


SCATAbout may be cut
There may-be little resi-
dents can do to prevent the
curb-to-curb bus service on
Venice island from being axed
by Sarasota County Area
Transit Authority.
One hint could be that
SCAT hasn't even asked Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice, which helped
fund it for two years, for
another grant.
A letter written by James
Harriott, general manager of
SCAT, responded to a local
resident's pleas to continue
the service started because of
traffic congestion caused by
both U.S. 41 Business bridges
were under construction.
"At this time, Sarasota
County is not submitting an
application to Gulf Coast


Community Foundation of-
Venice for funding operation
of the 'SCATAbout' or for
other transit services within
Sarasota County," Harriott,
wrote.
He went on to write, "SCAT 'L
is considering alternate ways
to provide transit service to
Island of Venice residents and
may recommend replacing.
'SCATAbout' in the future-t
with a new type of service."
City Manager Marty Black,
who was given a copy of the v
letter, advised council that-
SCAT staff is "suggesting ser-
vice cutbacks for the Venice
and South County area to
meet budget deficits" and0
he will continue to monitor
what the county-does.

Final workshops on county's comprehensive plan scheduled


Workshops address growth, environment and
jobs.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON,
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
The words themselves -
comprehensive planning -
sound boring, and who wants
to give up a weekday evening
to discuss the nuances of
redevelopment, the mix of
working and shopping with
residential uses, anld where
we play?
But for residents concern-
ed about the growing number
of baby boomers poised to
move to Florida and Sara-
sota County in particular a
final series of workshops re-
garding the county's compre-
hensive plan could be any-


thing but boring.
Sarasota County planners
have scheduled another ser-
ies of public workshops this
month to discuss potential
amendments to the county's
comprehensive plans.
During the month of
March, the following work-
shops are scheduled:
Safeguarding the Envir-
onment 6-8 p.m., Tuesday,
March 8, at the Fruitville Li-
brary Meeting Room, 100 Co-
bum Road, Sarasota.
What is Urban? Resi-
dential Growth in South Sara-
sota County- 6-8 p.m., Tues-
day, March 15, Englewood
Sports Complex Conference


Room, 1300 South River
Road, Englewood.
Land Use: Where Do We
Work and Shop? 6-8 p.m.,
Tuesday, March 22, Fruitville
Library Meeting Room, 100
Coburn Road, Sarasota.
Land Use: How Do We
Redevelop? and Parks and
Rec: Plan Today to Play To-
morrow 6-8 p.m., Tuesday,
March 29, Fruitville Library
Meeting Room, 100 Coburn
Road, Sarasota.
The March 15 workshop in
Englewood will be similar to
the discussion that occurred
last month in North County.
Heading east?
With North Port expected
to reach 80,000 people in the
next five to 10 years and new
developments already ap-


pearing on River Road and
more coming, the pressure on
county officials is increasing
to move the urban service
boundary that line that.
marks where the county will
provide urban services such
as water and sewer lines -
further east.
Growth patterns in the
unincorporated area of the
county also affect growth in
neighboring Charlotte Coun-
ty and the cities of Venice and
North Port, as well as the
Englewood Water District.
The comments and rec-
ommendations received by
the planners from residents
will help them formulate the
proposed changes to the
comp plan that they will take
to the planning commission
and the county commission


this summer.
The current review of the
comp plan is a process re-
quired of all counties and
municipalities by state law
every seven years. The comp
plan is the document that
dictates the timing and pat-
tern of growth and the impact
growth has on infrastructure
such as libraries, roads, water
and sewer lines and the envi-
ronment.
The idea behind the review
is to respond to changing
trends and conditions in the
community, as well as chang-
ing state and regional growth
management policies. The
process results in amend-
ments that keep the plan
aligned with community val-


ues and visions.
Upon approval by the
county commission, the
amendments will be submit-
ted to the Florida Department
of Community Affairs for
review and approval. By state
law, DCA has oversight au-
thority over all county and
municipal comp plans and
changes to that document.
Residents interested in the
comprehensive plan update
can have their names placed
upon a notification list by
sending an e-mail to plan-
ner@scgov.net and typing.
"notification list" in the sub-
ject line or calling 861-5140.

Osprey residents concerned about access to bay


BYGERALD A.-ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Waterfront revitalization,
long a deeply held hope of
Osprey residents, may again
be within reach. A developer's
proposal for the waterfront
along Little Sarasota Bay has
prompted re-examination of
how to restore public access
to the water.
Once a fishing village, Os-
prey has witnessed the disap-
pearance of fishing piers,
docks and boat ramps in
recent years, a result.of newer
development. The original
Osprey Revitalization Plan,
which evolved in the 1990s,
envisioned public viewing
and access to the bay by resi-
dents. It aimed at creating a
mix of waterfront restaurants,
hotels, shops, clustered
homes and condominiums,


offices and recreation areas.
Part of the original plan
called for about 14 acres of
land west of U.S. 41 and north
of the Hidden Bay condo-
minium community to Webb
Street to encompass such a
mix. But paramount to any
plan was to be public access
to the bay.
The proposal to the Osprey
Revitalization Committee last
month for retail shops along
U.S. 41 and 55 condomini-
ums at the waterfront end of a
5.5-acre tract renewed con-
cern aboutregaining the lost
public access. Eleven two-
story retail units of about
1,500 square feet each would
be along the highway. The
second stories would contain
residential lofts. The condo-
miniums would be clustered
along the waterfront and
toward the center of the prop-


erty.
Ultimately, the mixed-use
development might include
the Spanish Pointe Marina
Grille on Bayview Street, and
this prospect visibly alarmed
committee members and res-
idents at the presentation.
One of the very few remain-
ing public accesses to the bay,
its loss would be catastrophic,
in the view of many.
Master plan in doubt
The proposal, explained by
Sharon Tarman, who repre-
sented the developer's engi-
neers, was vague about the
restaurant, which is owned by
the developer. She explained
that no rezoning is currently
required.
Jay Leland, a member of
the revitalization committee,
expressed the concern of
many at the presentation.


"If this proposal is ap-
proved, it could force the
closing of Bayview Street," he
said. "That's the only way to
get to the restaurant and the
water in that area by land. The
parking space could be elimi-
nated by the development,
and that would kill the restau-
rant."
Perhaps as disturbing to
Osprey residents as further
loss of public access to the
water is the development of
the 114 acres in piecemeal
planning. The original revital-
ization plan insisted that a
master plan is essential.
To allow for implementing
the concept, a development
proposal would need to be
submitted as part of a peti-
tion to rezone. It would re-
quire demonstrating how the

AT A GLANCE
Here are the highlights ofthe new construction debris law
Venice City Council will consider at its regular meeting. Members
will meet at 4 p.m. for the regular meeting because of a closed-
door session at 1:30 p.m.
* Requirements All construction materials must be removed or
secured within 24 hours of a hurricane watch being issued. The
ban continues until the hurricane watch or warning is lifted.
* Penalties The contractor listed on building permits can be hit
with up to a $500 fine, 60 days in jail and revocation of business
license.
* Also Unrelated to the hurricane law, a new site debris ordi-
nance would allow construction site debris to accumulate for no
more than 14 days and not allow it to drift onto neighboring prop-
erties. All debris must be completely removed before the city will
conduct final inspections.


LAW from page 1A


Council member Fred
Hammett has heard the HBA's
concerns, but disagrees that
Venice is targeting the con-
struction industry.
Work sites simply run the
greatest risk of presenting a
danger, Hammett said.
"My thinking is they have
the opportunity to have the
most loose projectiles on their
sites," Hammett said. "Look at
one of those sites with tons of
clay tiles waiting to be
installed. Isn't that a danger?"
Proposed law
Much like the county's
pending proposal, Venice
wants to require all construc-
tion site debris be removed or
secured within 24 hours of a
hurricane watch being issued.
Material must remain that
way until after the watch or
warning has been lifted.
The contractor listed on
building permits is held
responsible and risks up to a
$500 fine and 60 days in jail if
the site is not in compliance.
Both proposals also threat-
en to revoke a contractor's
business license, which up-
sets Clements.
"That's really a shame,"
Clements said. "To go after a
contractor's license because
they can't get the laborers
they need to do the task, that's
just unfortunate.... I perceive
that as crossing the line."
Wayne Hall; a city attorney
who helped draft the law, said
prevention is the" intent.
Unfortunately, there must be
a real risk of consequences to
force all people to comply
As for enforcement, select-
ing 24 hours after issuance of
a hurricane watch seemed to
make the most sense, Hall
said. The goal is not to imme-
diately fine or jail contractors,
but to at least have that
option if they refuse to secure
loose items.
"We felt the hurricane
watch would be the most rea-
sonable trigger because it
comes out usually several
days in advance," Hall said.
Michael Baltzer, general
manager of the Venice
Community Center renova-
tion project with Magnum
Builders, had not read the
proposed ordinance, but sup-
ported the idea. The hurri-
canes struck last summer
shortly after the VCC job was



Quick file and

sites open

STAFF REPORT

Families with low to mod-
erate income levels in Sara-
sota County entitled to the
federal Earned Income Tax
Credit now have six sites that
will help them file their tax
returns and claim the credit.
No appointments are re-
quired, but individuals .and
families should bring their tax
documents with them. Train-
ed American Association of
Retired Persons volunteers
will be available to respond to
questions and to assist eligi-
ble residents in filing their
taxes so they can receive the
credit.
Eligible residents can re-
ceive refunds from the federal
government to help with un-
planned expenses, invest in
skills training or start a busi-
ness.

launched and material was
everywhere.
Workers removed and
gathered it all up, which is
common at Magnum jobs
because many are of public
facilities, Baltzer said. Even
beyond safety, there's the
public perception issue of
protecting the community.
At the North Port Public
Library job, Baltzer's crew had
loaded all of the clay tile onto
the roof. When the storm
turned their way, there wasn't
enough time to get enough
workers or the heavy equip-
ment back in to remove the
heavy tiles.
Workers wound up shov-
ing many of the tiles over the
side, busting them on the
ground.
"That cost us thousands of
dollars to, essentially, push
the tile off the roof," Baltzer
said. "It's just something you
have to do. And we have to do
it, especially because it's a
public job.'"

Credit is a refundable federal
income tax credit for low-

and families. Congress origi-
nally approved the legislation
in 1975 in part to offset the
burden of social security
taxes and to provide an in-
centive to work. When the


EITC exceeds the amount of
taxes owed, it results in a tax
refund to those who claim
and qualify for the credit.
To qualify, taxpayers must
meet certain requirements
and file a tax return, even if
they did not earn enough
money to be obligated to file a

a last resort.
Since then, Heschmeyer
has gotten at least 20 calls
from people wanting to
accept the home, but "most of
them were looking for a free
house to put on their vacant
lot," he told commission
members. The new owner
promises not to even listen to
private offers until March 30,
giving the city until then to
change its mind.
Money's no problem
Two of those five "no" votes
were at Friday's meeting, and
each seemed to soften his
stance. Still, neither John
Simmonds or Fred Hammett
would commit to supporting
city ownership until he knew
the price tag for relocation
and renovation.
"This isn't just about com-
ing up with 100 grand to


move the building," Hammett
said. "This isn't a free house.
... The question is what are
we going to pay, in the long
term, and I'd prefer it not be
taxpayer dollars."
Historical commission
members speculated the
moving cost would be
$100,000, but no exact quote
has been submitted. Reno-
vation costs to restore the
home to its original 1896 ap-
. pearance are not in, either,
but even Venice Archives Di-
rector Dorothy Korwek
admits it will be costly.
Resident Don O'Connell
was among the handful of cit-
izens who spoke up, telling
the commission to not worry
about money. O'Connell
owns several historic apart-
ment buildings in the area,
and he's already offered to
donate money toward the


project.
"The commission should
take a stand on several loca-
tions and specifically on pub-
lic ownership," O'Connell
said. "Money should not be a
problem. (Gulf Coast Com-
munityFoundation ofVenice)
has already offered support,
and so will others."
On tracks
Beyond its age and who's
lived in the old house, Ron
Higel told commissioners the
home is a major reason why
Venice's first set of railroad
tracks ran through town.
Higel, a descendant of origi-
nal Venice settlers, used to
live in that house and helped
move it in the 1950s from the
original spot at Stone Grove
citrus fields.
Stone Grove prompted the
first set of railroad tracks,


Higel said, as a way to ship
citrus fruit north. That even-
tually led to the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers
arriving inVenice, sparking all
the construction and growth
in the 1920s.
"The only other way to get
it out in those days was by
boat, which was very tenu-
ous," Higel said.
Historical commission
moved to support city owner-
ship and send chair Janis
Fawn back to council's March
22 meeting to ask again for its
support. Before then Fawn
will meet with City Manager
Marty Black to determine
possible locations and fund-
ing sources to move and
restore the home.

Community issues meet-
ings and public workshops
involving residents were held
in 1998 and 1999. They fo-
cused on expanded water-
front uses, particularly
around the Spanish Pointe
Marina and restaurant. Two
small apartment complexes,
six duplexes and nine single-
family homes, two- rowing
clubs and eight vacant lots
currently occupy the land on
both sides of Bayview Street.

prospect of creating a master

tionable. *

"That's about as simple as
herding cats."
High and dry
Osprey residents, accord-
ing to Judith Johnson, chair of
the revitalization committee,
have complained for years
about the disappearance of
access to Little Sarasota Bay.
Increased private develop-
ment has eliminated boat


ramps and piers at Main and
Webb streets, the Osprey fish-
ing pier, the west end of Bay
Street and Blackburn Point
Road, she observed.
"At one time, you could get
to the water through private
property, with the permission
of owners," she recalled. "But
times have changed. We're no
longer a fishing village, where
a lot of people lived on the
water. We need to do some-
thing to restore access to the
water."
Next steps for the revital-
ization committee will in-


clude consultation with Sara-
sota County on how to pro-
ceed. New standards for zon-
ing, environmental issues and
traffic along the -waterfront
need to be established,
This will involve the type of
meetings with residents that
took place six and seven years
ago. They may lead to the
revitalized waterfront that still
remains just a hope.

Dreams dashed in final seconds


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


DiGiacomo

deserves

kudos

A lot of the credit for this
season's Venice High girls
basketball success has gone
to assistant coaches Cayll
Smith and Gary Halbert, and
rightfully so.
Smith, of course, was a
legend at Riverview High,
posting 500 wins before un-
ceremoniously being shown
the gate in 2002.
Halbert had gained notori-
ety coaching basketball and
volleyball at Sarasota High.
He also had a fallout and left
Sailorland in 2002.,
They are motivators and
teachers of prep hoops to the
highest degree.
But another who deserves
equal props is the head coach
of this season's near-Cin-,
derella. story Joe DiGia-
como.
DiGiacomo is responsible
for putting the "rat pack" to-
gether. Never one to ride on
a power trip, he considered
the coaching arrangement a
trifecta from the start with
each having equal input.
As they say "Whatever it
takes" or "Git 'r dunn." .
DiGiacomo grew up an
athlete and big sports fan in
South Jersey. His father was
on a team that made it to the
Little League World Series.
Joe played high school hoops
and football before moving
on to matriculate at Spring-
field College in Massachu-
setts.
DiGiacomo flew south to
Venice in 1989. He got a job as
physical education teacher at
Epiphany Cathedral School,
charging up highly successful
basketball and volleyball
programs. The thanks he got
was a boot in the can.
DiGiacomo landed on his
feet at Pine View School,
where he has been a phys ed
teacher and coach since 2002.
Some folks were upset
when "Coach Joe" first landed
the Lady Indian job after
Hansen resigned in 1999.
People still hold grudges to
this day.
Venice High athletic direc-
tor Larry Sandburg said it
was a tough decision, but
that DiGiacomo "handled
kids well and is knowledge-
able about sports."
As it turned out, Sandburg
made the right decision.
The Lady Indians made it
to the region finals in Di-
Giacomo's first season at the
helm and then as far as the
region semifinals his second
season.
Then came a two-year dry
spell and uncharacteristic
losing seasons.
The ship was righted in
2003-2004 when Venice won
the district and finished with
a record of 23-5. Then there
was the 25-7 record this year.
The trip to the state finals
has put basketball back on
the map at Venice High.
While DiGiacomo will lose
four starters from this' sea-
son's team to graduation -
Lisa Hough, Vickie Mitchell.
Dana Nostin and Kailey
Dettmann, plus superbench
Jessica Enander the spark
has been rekindled.
The talented Natalie Gau-
dreau will be returning. There
are lots of other hungry play-
ers plus those bouncing up
from this season's undefeated
. junior varsity team.
The future's so bright, Di-
Giacomo has to wear shades.


Venice High girls basketball team
can be proud of second-place showing
at Class 5A State Finals in Lakeland.

SPORTS EDITOR

Maybe the Venice High
girls basketball players should
have pinched themselves to
know they weren't dreaming,
but they really didn't have
time to.
It was surreal, to say the
least.
Trailing by one point
against highly regarded and
heavily favored Dillard with
the game on the line, Venice
had the ball with the clock
ticking down the final sec-
onds.
A field goal or free throws
would have given the Lady
Indians the lead, and with it a


times it looked like the Lady
Indians had an open shot. It
seemed nobody wanted to
take it.
The rest was worst-case
scenario.
A bad pass from the comer
back out resulted in a back-
court call with 17 seconds left.
Now the ball was in Dil-
lard's court.
The Lady Panthers ate up
10 seconds before finally
getting fouled. All-American
guard Erica Brown calmly
sank two free throws to put
the Lady Panthers up by
three.
Still, Venice had a prayer.
It appeared Nostin was
fouled launching a 3-point

52-49 victory over the never-
say-die Lady Indians Friday
night at The Lakeland Center.
There was a mob scene
at center court. The Venice
players shuffled back to their
bench, tears welling in their
eyes.
With the victory, Dillard
(30-1) has now won back-to-
back 5A state titles.
Venice saw its greatest girls
basketball season ever end
with the runnerup trophy.
Not .bad for a team that
many thought would never
make it out of region.
The Lady Indians finish
with a record of 25-7 and a
lifetime of memories.
"You know how hard it is
to get here and how close
we were, that's the hardest
thing," said an understand-
ably frustrated head coach Joe
DiGiacomo. "To get so close
and know we had it."
The final stats would back
that up.
Venice held an edge in field
goal percentage (41 to 37), 3-
point percentage (32 to 11)
and in rebounding (32-31).
To balance that out, Dillard
used its quickness for 13
steals compare to just two for
Venice. The Lady Panthers
only turned the ball over 10
times, while the Lady Indians
had 18 turnovers.
It all made for a whale of
a ballgame.
"Deep inside, I think we
should have won the game,",
DiGiacomo said. '"A couple
turnovers here and it adds
up. I know these girls and I
guarantee you they feel they
should have won the game."
Forward Vickie Mitchell,
who stepped up her game
from a sub-par semifinal to
lead the Lady Indians with 13
points and nine rebounds,
went into the Dillard game
with her head held high.
"We are just -as good as
'they are;" said the senior.
"We worked hard and prac-
ticed hard and deserve to be.
here and deserve to win."
Sophomore guard Natalie
Gaudreau, a team leader who
added nine points and eight
rebounds, felt the same way.
"Give us 10 games, we both
are going to win five," she
said.
Dillard might have expect-
ed an easier time, but coach
Marcia Pinder wasn't going to
admit it in her post-game
press conference.
"We had to fight," said the
veteran mentor. '"At this level,
everybody is good. Regard-
less of what their record was
and what they did last year,
it doesn't matter. You just get
up for this type of game. No
one expected them to get
this far and they probably
had to prove to people they
deserved to be here, and that
just elevates them."
"They knew we had some-
thing after we beat Clearwa-


ter," said DiGiacomo about
Venice's region semifinal win
over the Lady Tornadoes. .
Clearwater lost a close
game to Dillard in last year's
state final and had, most of
that team back this season.
Venice proved it could
-play with Dillard in the early
going. That helped boost
confidence.
"We knew if we could


hang with them the first four,'
minutes, we'd be OK," DiGia-"
como said. ,
Dillard ran out to an 8-2':'

St. Petersburg Sharks Devour Vikings


Indians tame Bobcats

in first diamond meeting


BY MIKE LAMOND
CORRESPONDENT


The St. Petersburg Sharks
are the best team in .the
SSFL and they showed why
Saturday night in a game
that more resembled a gang


fight more than a sporting
endevour. The Sharks are
four-time champions of the
SSFL and look like they're
going after number five in
the decisive blowout.
The high points for the
hometeam were few and far


between in a game in which
they never got on track.
There were a couple of bright
spots though, like the 47-yard
run ripped off by Chauncey
Jones and a couple of good
plays by the secondary in a
losing effort.
St Petersburg (6-1) domi-
nated the undersized and


undermanned Vikings in all
phases of the game. The
Vikings were missing some
key players and recently lost
three of their best players
to the Arena League.
The Vikings (0-7) play
host to the Lake Wales War
Eagles next Saturday to con-
clude their season.


Offensive Coach Rich Deto has words with one of the officials
during last night's Venice Vikings and St. Petersburg Sharks
action at Venice High School.

BY MICHAEL LAMOND
CORRESPONDENT

The Venice High Indians
defeated the North Port High
Bobcats 8-5 Friday night in
the first-ever baseball meet-
ing between the schools.
Greg Koehler came on
strong in retiring 12 of the last
13 batters including seven
in a row to boost Venice's
record to 2-3.
North Port proved game,
as it scored four runs in the
top of the second to take a
5-1 lead. Venice answered
back with three runs of its
own in tle third inning and
followed it with three more
in the bottom of the fourth
to take a 7-5 lead, one which
they would never relinquish.
The Bobcats (2-2) looked
very good early in amassing
their four-run inning, but
they got a lot of help from
the Indians.
A throwing error in the


third inning allowed two
runs to score after the pitcher
couldn't make the throw to
first.
Enter Koehler, who had
been bounced early in Ven-
ice's 12-0 victory versus Port
Charlotte Thursday. The big
right handed senior was
dominant in the closing
innings on Friday night.
The Indians were led of-
fensively by Jeremie Cook, a
junior, -who had an RBI
triple, and seniors Matt
Kindell and Joel Ehrhart,
who had RBI doubles.
North Port got a home run
in the top of the first to open
the scoring from third base-
man Freddy Love, as well as
Tom Elliot's two-run single
off the left center wall in the
Bobcat's four-run third.
* Next up for Venice is a
road game at Manatee High
School, where the. Indians
will attempt to even their
record at 3-3.


four.
The game went back and
forth in the second quarter.
Kailey Dettmann and Jessica
Enander heated up with 3-
pointers to make it 29-29 at
intermission.
Dillard went on a run in
the third quarter. Guard
Shandrea Moore hurt the
Lady Indians the most with
jumpers from the baseline.
She popped for 10 of her 16
points in the third quarter as
the Lady Panthers led 47-39
heading into final quarter.
It was there Venice pulled,
out all the stops to make a
late run.
Dillard went into a semi-
stall,, looking for back doors
in a delay "four corners"
type offense. However,, the
strategy backfired, as the.
Lady Panthers had trouble
taking care of the ball.
Gaudreau's 3-poiner put
Venice back in it at 48-44.
Mitchell canned a short
jumper with 2:05 left to draw
the Lady Indians to within
48+46.
Brown answered with a
dri\e to the hoop to make it
50-46, but Dettmann, who
finished with four 3-pointers
and 12 points, dialed in from
the cheap seats to make it
50:49 with 1:25 remaining.
Panther forward Stacey
Smith missed a shot and
Hough rebounded, setting
the stage for the dramatic
final seconds.
:Unfortunately, they didn't
end the way Venice fans

contingent envisioned them.

Bartlett signs with Benedictine College


Some events on the horizonL


SUN PHOTO BY CLAUDE LEWIS

Venice High football player Mike Bartlett, seated second from left, signs to continue
his playing career at Benedictine College in Kansas. Sharing his special moment are
mother Christine, father Mike Sr. and Venice High principal Candy Millington. Standing
are VHS football coaches John Peacock, Mike Bartlett, Jeremy Brown, Nick Coleman
and Larry Shannon.


This week, we are going to
take a look at some upcom-
ing local tournaments
As usual, the old timers get
the fun first.
Next week, the Sarasota
City Seniors will be held at
the Bobby lones Golf Com-
plex in Sarasota. The entry
deadline is March 8, so hop
to it if you would like to test
your mertle.
On March 19-20, the City
of Bradenton Seniors Tourn-
ament is at the River Run
Golf Links in Bradenton.
While I have never played
the course, I always hear
good things from the guys I
know about the course. The
rumor is it's fairly tight and
usually has good greens.
I don't like to complain
... yeah right ... but it just
doesn't seem fair that sen-
iors, juniors and women can
play in our tournaments,
but we can't play in theirs. I
think they're skeeered of us
fat, I mean flat bellies.


Michael Lamond

THE ZONE



On April 16-17, River Run
Golf Links will host the
Bradenton Two-Man Combo
event. Not exactly sure what
the combo part of the tourn-
ament is, but it could be
fun. Give them a call at (941)
708-6331.
The City of Sarasota Men's
Championship will be held
at Bobby Jones Golf Corn-


plex over the weekends o.
April 23-24 and April 30-
May 1. This may seem a lirtlte
bit early to mention it, butf.-:
this tournament usually fills"-
up very quickly, so you mighi4
want to start looking for'
entry forms.
Bobby Jones is very busy,
tournament-wise, this month
and on April 2-3 will hold
the Sarasota City Women'.
Partners. I suppose this is
a euphemism for a two-"'
woman best ball. Chicks just
gotta be different. I shudder
to think of the second optiofli
Next week, we're going tb',,

Common water rate structure OK'd by water authority


Expansion of water system would come faster
under the new plan.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

After approving the idea in
principle a week ago, there
was little doubt that the Peace
River/Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority
would give it their formal
blessing.
And during its regular
board meeting Wednesday,
the authority's four-member
board did just that, unani-
mously approving without
discussion the move to a
common water rate structure
and the construction of the
next expansion of the facility
in one phase instead of the
planned two.
Those two points were
contained in a set of guide-
lines that authority attorney
Doug Manson will use to
develop a new water supply
contract among the authority
Sand its four customers -
Charlotte, Sarasota and
DeSoto counties and the city
of North Port.
Other points included in
the guidelines call for the pay-
ment of about $26 million to
Charlotte County to wipe out
indebtedness created in the
early 1990s from buying out
General Development. In
addition,, the authority also
would give Charlotte County
another $6 million to offset
the increase in the rate it cur-
rently pays for water.
Under the common rate
structure, each of the authori-
ty's water customers Sara-
sota, DeSoto and Charlotte
counties and North Port -
would pay the same rate to
buy water from the authority,
an estimated 77 cents for
every 1,000 gallons of water
they commit to buy.
That potential charge
could rise, because it does not
include the authority's oper-
ating costs, maintenance
costs or debt service.
That means the rate Char-
lotte is currently paying for
water from the authority
would rise from 51 cents to 77
cents.
Likewise, North Port's rate
would also increase from 42
cents to 77 cents.
That's one issue that still
will have to be discussed,
.along with the amount of its
allocation, said North Port
Utilities Director Cindi Mick.
Not satisfied
Although Mick said it was
"wonderful news" to hear the
authority would conduct the
expansion of the water treat-
ment plant on the Peace River
near Arcadia in one phase, the
city still wasn't satisfied with
its allocation of water from
the facility.
The expansion will take the
facility from its current capac-
ity of 18 million gallons of
water per day to its permitted
capacity of 32.7 mgd when
completed in 2008. North
Port wants 5 mgd from the
expansion, but an allocation
agreement developed after
months" of negotiations be-
tween officials from the four
counties and North Port gave
the city.2.218 mgd by 2010.
That allocation rises to 2.7
mgd when the facility be-
comes fully operational in
2011.
Presented thpse numbers a
month ago, Sarasota County
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said she
felt the sides
were not too
far apart..
Staub said
North Port -
according to
data it gave
the authority
was show-
Staub ing a demand
of 3.628 mgd
in 2011.
Taking out the 2.218 mgd

cated from the new expan-
sion left a 1.41 mgd shortage


to serve the Thomas Ranch.
Staub said Sarasota County
was ready to offer the city a
side contract to sell water to
meet that need.


Actual demand
The differences in the de-
mand figures shows a need
for all members to "give us
their real demand numbers"
for the next five years, Man-


son said. In addition, the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District is also
moving to require utilities to
prove actual demand rather
than using estimates.
.Approval of the guidelines
by the authority's board is
only the first step.
Manson hopes to have a


draft contract prepared for
the board to consider at its
April 6 meeting. If that con-
tract is approved, it would
then go to each of the mem-
ber counties and North Port
for approval before coming
back to the authority board
for final adoption in May.
Following that timetable


would allow the authority to
begin issuing bonds for the
expansion in June, taking
advantage of a favorable
bond market that would
result in almost $1 million in
savings to the authority.
"You're all in it. You all have
to be in agreement," Manson
said.


"This is really a huge step
forward," said Pat Lehman,
the authority's executive di-
rector, "in getting the cus-
tomers to a common water
rate with everyone paying the
same common cost."

Bonnie Kaiser and Sharon
Brown, chairs of the Women's
Sertoma Quiz Night, want you
to support the Venice version
of "Quiz Kids" today. The
event starts at 2 p.m. at Jaca-
randa Trace and benefits the
Venice High School Rotary
Futures Program and Project
Graduation.
News from the
nation's capital
Ruthann Dearybury can't
wipe the smile off her face
because she's getting ready to
join the grandmother's club.
Her daughter Sheila Deary-,
bury and son-in-law JeffWal-
coff are expecting their first
baby. Sheila is the associate
commissioner for External
Relations with the Food and
Drug Administration in Wash-
ington, D.C., so Ruthann
knows she will be chalking up
frequent flyer miles once the
baby comes.
Having a daughter that
works for the government
does have its perks. Ruthann
attended one of the inaugural
balls and enjoyed some other
festivities celebrating the
presidential inauguration.
Shuffling off to Buffalo
Joseph Giglia. who played
the romantic teen angel in
"Grease" at the Venice Little
Theatre last season, is learn-
ing to tap dance at Attitudes
in Dance. Next year, Joseph
hopes his dance lessons pay
off and give him the opportu-
nity to do some singing in the
rain at the theater.

lim Chappo was born a
Detroit Tigers fan. On March
10, Jim will be singing the
National Anthem at the stadi-
um when the Tigers play the
Red Sox in Sarasota. He'll be
wearing a special jersey his
grandparents had tucked
away in a cargo chest. It is a
1943-45 Detroit Tigers jersey
with 'the stars and. stripes
World War II patch on it.
Jim knows when he stands
at that microphone, he'll be
thinking of his grandparents
who first took him to games
and introduced him to the
Tigers.
Beating to the beat
of a different drum
Several people wanted to
know what happened to Jeff
Tennent, who was the per-
cussionist with the Venice
Symphony for years. I saw leff
recently and he told me he
has become a triathalon ath-
lete.
He said a few. years ago a
friend encouraged him to
participate in a bike race and
he got hooked.
On the campaign trail
Venice High graduate Kelly
Smith once told the late Gov.
Lawton Chiles she wanted'to
be the first woman governor of
the state of Florida. Kellyis now
focused on reaching that goal.
She recently was elected to
the Union Board at Florida
State University. The position
gives her the chance to work
with administrators and other
board members in planning
events and budgets and
bringing business into the
Union.

South Venic






Association t


BYJEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

They say things are differ-
ent down south.
It really depends on how
far south you travel. Not too
far down is South Venice. The
Southern salutation. rings
somewhat true because it re-
sembles an unusually large
neighborhood. In fact, some
people choose to never leave
this particular neighborhood.
The South Venice Civic
Association will celebrate its
50-year anniversary and hon-
or its dedicated volunteers at
6 p.m. on March 12 at the
South Venice Community
Center. The SVCA was created
in 1955 to provide South
Venice with a united voice. In
the last five years member-
ship has skyrocketed from
400 households to more than
1,000, thanks to dedicated
volunteers. Rick Curwood, 58,
is the chair of the South
Venice Beach Endowment
Trust and was a president of
the South Venice Civic Asso-
ciation for three years.
"We'd like to recognize all
the volunteers who got us.
where we are today and cele-
brate the fact that the associa-
tion has lasted this long,"
Cutwood said. "I think we'll
be around for another 50."
Curwood also grew up in
the South Ve-6riconfmunity.
"I used to ride ity bike
around as a kid," he said.
"That was back when the
roads were unpaved."
Before die land was devel-
oped in the 1950s, the area
was mostly a mystery, except
to the homeless folks who
often camped there in tents
or occasionally, in large refrig-
erator boxes.
It was a forest and would
remain virtually undeveloped
for some time.
Then overnight, the enig-
matic area became the sub-
ject of one of the biggest land
crazes in Florida history.
According to the South
Venice Beach Wave, newslet-
ter for the SVCA, Warren and
,Arthur Smadbeck, two broth-
ers from New Jersey, pur-
chased 3,300 acres of land
from Sarasota Countyin 1952.
They platted the land into
19,587 lots, which they sold
within two years. The South
Venice Civic Association
starting recruiting members
in 1955. A fire department
and a slew of hobby clubs
soon followed.
As development contin-
ued, there was a need to pa-


trol the beach and care for the
shoreline that edged South
Venice on the west. That need
led to a "beach swap," which
occurred in 1983. During the
"swap" some of Caspersen
Beach in Venice was traded
for an area of South Venice
Beach, resulting in 1,300 feet
of continuous shoreline in
South Venice. It became the
responsibility of the S'CA to
care for the shoreline, which
is no small task.
During the 1990s, South
Venice was the largest subdi-
vision in Sarasota County.
Today more than 20,000 resi-
dents call the South Venice
subdivision home. Vet relics
from the past remain. One of
the most visible, the home of
the old South Venice Fire
Department, is now home to
Habitat for Humanity for
Sarasota County.
In 1954 building lots sold
for as little $200 each and
two-bedroom homes were
being built for the price of
$7,400. Lots that were sold
just a few years ago for
$10,000 are now selling for
$99,000 per lot.
"Over the last three and a
half years it has really taken
off," Curwood said.
For many South Venice res-
idents, the most important
institution is the ferry that
takes South Venice families
across the Intracoastal
Waterway to South Venice
Beach. Passes are available for
$70 a year. The fee pays for the
experienced captains and
maintenance of the ferry
Current SVCA President Bob
Officer captained the ferry for
seven years..
"You get to meet every-
body," Officer said. "You meet
a lot of Europeans who like
the fact that our beach isn't
crowded."
The boat ramp is also a
unique feature to South
Venice. For $40 a yeat you can
launch your boat into the
Intracoastal Waterway and go
fishing or soak up the sun.
Officer would like all to know
that anybody can enjoy South
Venice Beach because it is
public.
The pavilion, built in 1967,
provided shelter for people at
the beach. Hurricane Ivan
came through and actually
straightened the floor boards
and support beams, which
was a welcome effect, but
when Jeanne came the pavil-
ion was destroyed. The per-
mit for destruction of the
pavilion is in the application
process and the building


People come from all over the world to enjoy the seclusion of
South Venice Beach.

should be gone by mid-
March.
Plans for a new pavilion are
in place, but it will have to be
in a different location.
"It will be more like the
ones built by the county and
more environmentally friend-
ly," Officer said.
Board and membership
meetings are held regularly,
including events like an occa-
sional pancake breakfast or
potluck dinner.
One favorite event of the
SVCA members is the annual
flea market at the ferry, which
will be on March 5 from 8 a.m.
to 2 p.m. Itis open to the pub-
lic.
Like other civic associa-
tions, the SVCGA would like to
beautify the area and has a
community plan. The plan
was first conceived in 2003. Its
priorities include improved
code enforcement, bicycle
paths, a post office, enforce-
ment of moving violations,
protection of listed wildlife
species, drainage ditch main-
tenance, deed restrictions,
improvements to Shamrock
Park, commercial signs and
construction deadlines.
"We pursued the commu-.
nity plan vigorously and it is
now in place," Officer said.
"The county is getting a com-
puter set to implement codes
in place for the plan." ,
In 2002, the SVCA became
a not-for-profit organization.
The SVCAs mission has not
changed since its inception.
Keeping the community
beautiful and active is still a
priority as it has been for 50
years.
Those interested in be-
coming members of the asso-
ciation should call 493-0006
or log on to its Web site at
venfl.com/svca. The yearly
membership fee is $40.

By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My Audiologist tested my
hearing recently and gave
me a copy of the results. I
don't understand how to
read the graph. Can you
help?
A. An audiogramm" is a picture
of your hearing loss. The
vertical lines represent pitch or
frequency. The 125Hz
represents a very low pitch and
each vertical line to the right
represents a higher and higher
pitch. The most important
pitches for speech are 1000Hz
to 4000Hz. The horizontal lines
represent loudness. The zero
line at the top represents very
soft sounds and each horizontal
line below represents louder
and louder sounds. The points
on the graph represent the
softest level you can hear at
each pitch. Points within zero
and 30 dB are considered
normal results. If your points
lie between 30 and 50 you have
mild hearing loss, between 50
and 70 moderate loss, between
70 and 90 severe loss and
below 90dB is profound
hearing impairment. Your
audiologist can take this graph
and superimpose speech
sounds to illustrate the sounds
you can no longer hear.
Contact the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing & Balance
Centers, Inc. at 492-4327

recent hearing test in your

try to stick to the island, but
we sometimes venture out to
other areas of Venice. Treva

I have a passion for garden-

Venice's love for the desert

As Old Man Winter de-
parts, many start to put shov-
els and snowthrowers into
hibernation, only to trade
them in for the lawn mower
and a bag of fertilizer. It is esti-
mated that more than two-
thirds of all lawnmowers do
not receive the annual tune-
up necessary to run in tip-top
shape.
Regular tune-ups reduce
fuel consumption and emis-
sion levels and help to in-
crease mower life and reliabil-
ity. With springtime quickly
approaching, now is the time
to get your mower ready for
the season with a few simple
tune-up tasks.
Hopefully you remem-
bered to run the gas tank
empty before the mower was
stored away last fall. If not,
drain the old fuel. After com-
pleting the following mainte-
nance items, replace with
fresh gas. Gasoline older than
90 days can gel and clog the
carburetor, hindering engine
start up. Once the fuel tank is
empty and the spark plug
wire is disconnected, you're
ready to get started.
Sharpen or replace
theblade
It is a good idea to get the
blade sharpened once a year.
A dull blade can harm the
grass and make it more sus-
ceptible to disease. Have the
blade professionally sharp-
ened or replaced if there are
large knicks or dings. Please
refer to your owner's manual
for additional information.
Change the oil
Fresh oil keeps the engine
properly lubricated and en-
sures that clean oil is continu-
ously distributed to critical
engine components, reduc-
ing friction.


Manufacturers may rec-
ommend specific oil removal
techniques so refer to your
owner's manual before start-
ing this process.
Clean the oil fill area,
remove the dipstick and place
a catch can under the mower.
Allow the oil to drain com-
pletely and .if necessary,
replace the drain plug. Refill
the engine with oil.
Change the spark plug
Replacing the spark plug
every spring ensures a consis-
tent spark, reliable starting
and improved fuel economy.
Remove the old spark plug.
Before installing the new
plug, be sure to check its gap
(refer to your owner's maual
for specifications). Once, you
have checked for proper gap,
screw it in tight with your fin-
gers. Then give it a quarter
turn more with a socket.
Replace the air filter
A clogged air filter reduces
the air/fuel ratio, resulting in
higher fuel consumption and
a rough running engine. The
air filter should be cleaned or
replaced each spring and
checked periodically through-
out the season. Check your
owner's manual to see which
type of filter your mower
requires.,
There are generally two
types: paper or foam. If your
mower requires a foam filter,
be sure to saturate the filter
with fresh engine oil, wrap it
in a clean rag and then
squeeze out the excess oil
before installing.
Lubricate moving parts
Spray all linkages, cables
and wheel areas with WD-40.
Do not use oil to do this be-
cause oil will retain dirt and
eventually clog the area.


Visit your local outdoor
equipment dealer or hard-
ware store for the necessary
parts. When the tune-up is
completed, replace the spark
plug wire and fill the gas tank
with fresh fuel. Your mower is
now ready for the mowing
season.
Shelf life of typical
yardcare products
Gasoline Gasoline has a
shelf life of around 90 days.
Like milk, gasoline can go bad
and may significantly harm a
lawnmower's life span.
Oil Oil can have a shelf
life of up to three years, but it
is important to change mow-
er engine oil at least once a
year.
Remember: When discard-
ing old fuel or oil, make sure
to dispose of it properly in
places such as a service sta-
tion or waste disposal station.
Grass seed Depending
on the storage, grass seeds
can last two to three years. In
order to test its vitality; plant a
few seeds in a small flower-
pot, keep them moist and
cover them with a plastic bag.
Good seeds will germinate
within a week or two.
Fertilizer Fertilizer
never goes bad. Even when it
becomes compacted and
hard, all you need to do is take
a hammer and break it apart.
However, spread the com-
pacted pieces sparingly to not
destroy the roots.
Store all products in your
garage. Do not keep in a shed
or other type of outdoor stor-
age, due to weather extremi-
ties (too hot in summer, too
cold in winter), for this may
alter product shelf life.

Take an old pair of glasses
and smear some Vaseline
over the lens. Try to read the
newspaper or look at a pic-
ture of your kids. This will give
you an idea of what it is like to
have cataracts. Now imagine
for a moment not being able
to see the details of your loved
ones face. You can see their
outline but not that dimple
on their right cheek. You may
not even recognize them
from across the room.
Vision changes are a natur-
al part of aging. But some of
us are less fortunate than oth-
ers and develop serious eye
conditions resulting in either


well

loss of our sight or low vision.
The rate of blindness and
vision impairment increases
rapidly in the later years, par-
ticularly after age 75. Florida
has a higher prevalence (3.42
percent) of vision impair-
ment and blindness than the
overall national rate of 2.85
percent. There are 261,745
people age 40 and older in
Florida with vision impair-
ment.
I often meet people with
low vision. You cannot tell
them from any other person
you meet except when they
need to see something small
or read. Low lighting really
causes a problem. They are
often people who have had
some sudden changes in their
vision and are now looking
for help.
At the Senior Friendship
Center-Venice we have two
closed circuit TV magnifiers
provided by the Venice Lions
Club. These two units will
enlarge any reading material
up to the point only one letter
is on the screen. It is really
good for reading the stock
market reports! But there is so


go to the library


much more available in our
two community libraries.
The recently expanded
and renovated Frances T.
Bourne Jacaranda Public Li-
brary has an extremely large
collection of large print books
and one entire room devoted
to 'vision aids. They have a
special very large screen com-
puter with Internet service
and special software to en-
large the print.
Librarian Carolyn Wolf told
me people with macular
degeneration who check the
stock market and e-mail their
kids very often use this com-
puter. Much of the equip-
ment is available for you to
check out, take home and try
to determine what works best
for you. You could try the talk-
ing alarm clock.
Seems to me the ringing
ones are bad enough!
One great resource is the
movie collection with de-
scriptive information. You
can check out "Casablanca"
and while you are watching
the film a quiet voice will tell
you what is going on in the
film. The entire family can,


enjoy the film ... just add
popcorn.
The children's library has
large print books, too, and
some books in Braille with
more on order. Sheila Kaufer,
children's librarian, is eager to
work with low vision and
blind kids to help them have
available the reading materi-
als they need. She said the
Venice Lions Club is always
ready to help our community
libraries meet the needs of
people with vision problems.
You will find just as good a
collection of low vision books,
movies, and magnifiers at the
Venice Public Library.
If you have no transporta-
tion or are homebound, the
library has some volunteers
that will bring materials to
your door.
So just because your vision
has changed, don't miss out
on the joy of reading. Visit
your library today.

My cruise ship fantasy assignment


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
UST OK[URi. I


Can you believe that a
cruise ship hired a 91-year-
old woman who is almost
blind and can hardly walk as:
an on-board food critic? I
guess they knew that I always
speak my mind, and weren't
afraid of the damage my
trusty walker might cause.
Many ways to carry out my
new duties began flooding my
mind. My family has treated
me to some fine meals over
the years, and I could just fo-
cus on the exotic parts of the
menu. I could conduct a pop-
ularity contest for different
menu items. Another idea

was to ask people what their
favorite foods were, and see
how many of them were
served on the ship. In fact, I
began working on that ap-
proach and found a prefer-
ence for seafood: shrimp, fab-
ulous mussels in London,
blue crabs, sea scallops with a
black truffle wafer and lobster
(also my choice). The only
meat choice was prime rib.
Then I had a brainstorm. It
didn't really matter how many
items the ship offered, how ele-
gantly they were described or
even how well all of them were
prepared. It only mattered if
people chose to eat them.
Memories of children eat-
ing came to mind, and how
many things children won't
eat. Brothers and sisters seem
to have come from different
families rather than the same
parents when it comes to food


preferences. Do they change as
they get older, or stick to their
do's and don't? I dunno?
So I decided to test the
approach of how many peo-
ple would try the items, ver-
sus measuring their quality. I
went to the dining room and
asked everyone to look care-
fully at a menu. Then I asked
the people who were willing
to order more than half of the
things on..the..menu.to move.
to the right side of the ship,
and those willing to order less
than half of the things on the
menu to move to the left side
of the ship. As soon as people
began moving a frantic an-
nouncement came over the
loudspeaker fo stop immedi-
ately the ship was leaning
way too far left.
I suppose if I had asked
how many people were will-
ing to have the item without


modification (salad dressing
on the side, no mushrooms,
etc.) there would have been
even fewer on the right side of
the ship.
Why do we go on a major
fantasy adventure like a vaca-
tion on a cruise ship, yet re-
strict ourselves to our eating
habits from home? I dunno?
But it seems a shame.
Maybe they will run this
article on April Fools Day. If
not, thank you for allowing
my fantasy adventure. This
question has always perplex-
ed me, and it was fun to raise
it as a spoof.

Be informed: Medigap

and Medicare differ


JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
I've been reading about the
new prescription drug benefits
and want to find out how this
works with my current Medigap
policy. Last year my medicine
cost nearly $4,000. I have a
Medigap policy now, which
helps cover medication but it
also covers other medical ex-
penses too. Can I keep my cur-
rent Medigap policy or will I
need it when the Medicare drug
benefit kicks in 2006? Anx-
ious Andy
Dear Anxious,
Yes, you can keep your
current Medigap drug benefit
policy, but you can't. have the
Medicare (Part D) drug bene-
fit too! After 2006, new bene-
ficiaries won't even be
allowed to get a Medigap pol-
icy that includes drug
options, but seniors like you,
who already have a policy
will be allowed to keep it, but
there are some conse-,
quences. You'll have to
decide which plan is most
cost effective for you.
Savvy note
You can keep an ordinary
Medigap plan, without drug
benefits, but it can't be used
to fill in the gaps in Medicare
.drug coverage.. ....
Medigap versus Medicare
Three of the 10 Medigap
policies H, I and J offer
prescription drug benefits,
and the cost and benefits of
each will vary. I don't know
how good your Medigap drug
benefit coverage is, but I do
know how good Medicare
Part D is, so let's compare.
Figuring your medication
cost $4,000 per year,


Medicare Part D would pay
for $1,080, and you would
pay the other $2,920. Take
these numbers and compare
them to the premium, co-pay
and coverage of your current
Medigap plan to help you
make your decision. But,
before you decide, there are
several other factors to con-
sider including:
Long-term plan: The cost
of both plans will increase,
and your health could
improve or deteriorate,
requiring more or less medi-
cine. So, you need to look not
only at your current costs,
but also consider your
expenses over the long term
to the extent you can. The
Congressional Budget Office
estimates that premiums and
deductibles for Part D will
rise approximately 10 per-
cent annually.
Low income subsidy:
Seniors with income below
$14,450 for individuals and
$19,500 for couples or 150
percent of the projected 2006
federal poverty level will
experience lower prescrip-
tion drug costs with the Part
D plan because Medicare will
provide special assistance.
Medigap and Medicare: If
you like your Medigap policy
for its other health care cov-
erage, but decide to go with
the Medicare prescription
drug plan, you will probably
be able to keep the Medigap
policy, but will have to drop
the drug coverage portion.
Late enrollment penalty:
There will be an open enroll-
ment period for Medicare
beneficiaries to join Part D,
from Nov. 15, 2005, to May
15, 2006. If you stick with
..your Medigap plan, but later
decide to switch to the Medi-
care Part D plan, you could
be charged late enrollment of
1 percent for every month in
which you could have
enrolled but did not. Also, if
you drop Medigap in favor of
Part D, there's no going back.

Family history
Dear Savvy Senior,
My wife and I are celebrating
our 50th wedding anniversary.
To celebrate this milestone, we
would like to write a personal
family history for our children
and grandchildren, and since
we are both retired, we have
lots of time. The problem is, we
have piles of old family letters,
documents, photos, and other
items and are feeling, well,
overwhelmed and don't know
how to get started. How do we
begin to turn all this stuff into
an interesting personal history
for our family to read? Can you
give us any advice or directions
on this matter? Writer's Block
Dear Block,
Great idea! Writing a fami-
ly history can be a very satis-
fying experience, as well as a
great way to bond with your
children and grandchildren.
Here are some tips to consid-
er to help you get started.
Where to start
If putting together a family
history spanning your entire
life, as well as other genera-
tions, seems overwhelming,
start small. Instead of plow-
ing aimlessly through your
piles of photos and memen-
tos, make a simple outline of
your lives. A good starting
point is to separate your life's
history into different stages
or chapters and keep a differ-
ent file on each one. This can


help you focus and simplify
your project. Here are some
categories to consider:
Family history
and genealogy
Early childhood schools,
friends and teachers
Your own parents
High school
College experiences
Military service
Early married life
Employment and career
Your children
Middle age life
Retirement years
Remembering
Before you begin writing,
take a trip or two down
memory lane. Think back on
all the things you have done,
places you have gone, people
you have known. The memo-
ries will come to you in bits
and pieces, but you will be
surprised at how one memo-
ry will trigger another and
then another. To help you
remember, pull out your old
photos, letters, diaries or
souvenirs. As each memory
comes to mind, record it on
an index card with a phrase
or short sentence.
Current events
History affects all of us, so
sprinkle in some current
events to your family history.
By including major historical
events that were in the news
during your life, your history
will be easier to relate to as
you set it against the context
of the times. You may also
find that recalling historical
events, stirs up more person-
al memories.
Extra ideas
Your family history should
also include your personal
and meaningful
thoughts, for example; what
you want to be remembered
for, what you are most proud
of, or your biggest regrets.
You could also include extras
like pictures, maps, letters,
speeches, awards, favorite
things (food, recipes, movie,
quotes, jokes, music) and any
other sentimental memora-


bilia that helps tell your story.
Writing tips
Select a time of day when
your writing skills are most
creative. Schedule two to
three hours one day a week
in a comfortable, organized
work place. Write in plain,
conversational language,
being natural like you talk.
Write to be understood in
short paragraphs. Also, don't
try to make your first version
your final version. Your fami-
ly story is an evolution, and
rewriting allows you to mold
and shape new memories,
interesting facts, or other
missing information.
Remember to have fun.
Writing a personal family his-
tory from your perspective
allows you to be open and
candid about the many
phases of your life, as well as
provide your children and
grandchildren a heartwarm-
ing and eye-opening gift they
can treasure for the rest of
their lives.

VA health care
Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you tell me about health
care benefits for Veterans? A
friend of mine recently enrolled
his 79-year-old father and,
much to his surprise, got all his
medications paid for. I am cur-
rently 59 and served in the
Army Reserve many years ago
and would like to find out what
VA assistance I might be eligible
for.
This is something I never
thought about. Can you help
me? Forgotten Reservist
Dear Forgotten,
A lot of people are sur-
prised to learn that the
Department of Veteran
Affairs runs the largest health
care system in the United
States. It operates 158 hospi-


tals, more than 850 clinics
and a comprehensive pre-
scription drug plan. But in
addition to health care, the
VA also offers disability com-
pensation, rehabilitation
training, pensions, home-
loan guarantees, educational
benefits, maintains military
cemeteries and runs the sev-
enth largest insurance pro-
gram in the U.S.
Here's the basics on how the
VA health care system works.

Eligibility
The primary factor in
determining a veteran's eligi-
bility to receive health care
benefits is "veteran status,"
which is established by active
duty service in the military,
naval, or air service. You
must have:
Been discharged from
active military service under
honorable conditions.
Served a minimum of two
years if discharged after
September 7, 1980 (prior to
this date there is no time
limit).
If a National Guardsman
or Reservist, served the entire
period for which you were
called to active duty other
than for training purposes.
Note: There are exceptions
to the two-year rule. Contact
the,VA for details.
Benefits
Veterans eligible for VA
health care will receive need-
ed inpatient and outpatient
services, including preventa-
tive and primary care. These
include:
Diagnostic and treatment
services.
Rehabilitative services.
Mental health, substance
abuse and home health.
Respite and hospice care.
Drugs in conjunction with
VA treatment.
Hearing aids and eyeglass-
es are provided only in spe-
cial circumstances or if you
have a service-connected
disability rating of at least 10
percent. Dental benefits also
are limited to those who have
a service-connected dental


condition or a 100 percent
service-connected disability
rating.
Priority and payments
Once you apply for VA
health care benefits, your eli-
gibility will be verified and
you will be assigned a 1-8
priority ranking, with the
highest priority going to vet-
erans with service-connected
disabilities. The VA also
charges copayments for
health care services tflat
includes $15 for a primary
care visit, $50 for a specialty
care and $7 for a 30-day or
less supply of medicine.
Copayments maybe
waived to low income veter-
ans or those with a service-
connected disability.
Enrollment
Veterans are required to
enroll for health care ser-
vices. You can apply by com-
'pletingVA Form 10-10EZ. You
can get this form by calling
(877) 222-8387, or by visiting
or writing anyVA health care
facility or veterans' benefits
office. You can also access the
form on the Internet at
1010ez.med.va.gov.
Veterans needing treatment
for a service-connected dis-
ability rated 50 percent or
more, or released from active
duty within the previous 12
months for a disability
incurred in the line of duty,
do not need'to apply.


VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 7B

Stretched thin
You also need to know
that while the health care
benefits provided by the VA
are excellent, they are overex-
tended. In 1998 congress
made 25 million vets eligible
for VA health care, creating a
financial and operational
quagmire. The number of
vets enrolled in the health
care program jumped from
2.9 million to 7 million which
has created a host of prob-
lems like long waiting lists
and rationed services.
Savvy resource
Department of Veteran
Affairs: Offers a comprehen-
sive Web site that provides
information on all aspects of
VA benefits and services. For
more information or to find a
VA facility near you visit

Books for the resourceful traveler

"Let's Go Alaska: Adventure
Guide" (St. Martin's Press,
$18.99)
This terrific guide covers
the entire state of Alaska as
well as the Yukon in Canada. It
offers suggested itineraries
and examines native culture
and history. The guide truly
comes into its own, however,
when discussing Alaska's
great outdoors. Much is writ-
ten about national parks and
monuments, wilderness safe-
ty (tips on the best way to
avoid bears, for example),
camping (there is a huge
amount of public land avail-
able in both Alaska and the
Yukon for this purpose) and
much more. For those who
truly want to get away from it
all but still appreciate a bit of
culture, the guide suggests
stopping by the cabin of poet
and storyteller Robert Service
(he of "The Shooting of Dan
McGrew" fame) in the Yukon
town of Dawson City or a
replica of Jack London's cabin.
He stayed here briefly. There's
also kayaking and dog mush-
ing to do as well as the plea-
sures of big city culture in
Anchorage. (ISBN 0-312-
32003-5)
"Let's Go Japan 2004" (St.
Martin's Press, $22.99)
You will learn here that
Japan is about the size of
California but packed to the
gills with nearly 130 million
people. It's also one of the
most homogenous countries
in the world some 99 per-
cent are ethnically Japanese.
In addition to being thorough


and well researched, each
"Let's Go" guide typically is
full of distinctive and often
fun information. There is a
very helpful description of
Japanese foods but also a list'
of the kinds of things you can
buy in vending machines
(from beer and sake to herbal
remedies and fresh flowers to
boxer shorts and pajamas).
The guide includes crucial
information on custom and
etiquette (such as bowing and
punctuality), The descrip-
tions of actual sites are quite
informative too. Car lovers
should not miss the Toyota
Exhibition Hall in the city of
Toyota. On a sadder note, the
Hiroshima Peace Memorial
Museum in Hiroshima is a
place to reflect and ponder.
Includes a Japanese pronun-
ciation guide and a phrase-
book. (ISBN 0-312-32007-8)

ON THE ROAD AGAIN TOURS


Road" (The Lyons Press,
$12.95)
More than ever, driving is
serious business. It is no
longer the. easygoing adven-
ture it used to be, what with
ubiquitous bumper-to-
bumper traffic, drunken dri-
vers and, of course, never-
ending road rage. So. this
handy little book a driver's
survival guide is a godsend
for those warriors of the road.
Author.James Joseph tells you
how to open a stuck or frozen
door, what to do if objects are
thrown from an overpass,
how to avoid a drunk driver,
how to avoid being carjacked,
what to do when the gas pedal
jams, and much more. Very
useful and potentially life sav-
ing. (ISBN 1-59228-031-5)

SUNDAY, MARCH 6,2005


GRACE JOYCE
GUEST ii

Most pet owners are very
concerned with the health
and well-being of their pet.,
New pet owners can be espe-
cially worried since they have
either never had a pet before,
or it may have been many
years since they've had a furry
friend in residence. After
years of answering questions
from new pet owners, I've
compiled a list of several
common hazards your pet
may face.
1. Dangling electrical
cords and drapery cords.
Cats especially like to chew
on cords. Unless you know for
sure your pet isn't interested,
secure them so they won't
become a tempting toy. Ele-
ctrical cords easily lead to
electric shock and fires.
Drapery cords aren't much
better. Longer than necessary
looped cords are potential
problems if pets get their
heads stuck between the
loop. Tie them up or cut
them shorter if they dangle
near the ground or by furni-
ture your pet is likely to be on.
2. Poisonous plants. More
than 700 plants are classified
as poisonous to animals.
Many are very common, like
Easter lily and philodendron.
If you are a plant lover, visit
the Humane Society of the
United States Web site
(hsus.org) to see which plants
may be best to remove for the
sake of your pet.
3. Tablecloths and unat-
tended tables. All pets are fas-
cinated with things just out of
reach, but kittens will be
especially curious and may
use your tablecloth to climb


to the top. Put fine crystal,
china and any heavy table-
top items in another location
to avoid broken treasures and
an emergency trip to the vet.
4. Cover garbage disposal
switches. Although you usu-
ally won't find your golden
retriever by your kitchen sink,
chances are good at some
point you'll find your cat
there. Many have been
known to play with electric
switches (such as the one for
your garbage disposal), so
purchase a special cover
available at hardware stores
to guard against a disposal
disaster.
5. Doors, cupboards and
the dryer. All animals love to
explore their surroundings so
keep on eye on open doors,
low cupboards and even the
dryer door. Small pets can
explore smaller areas and get
themselves into a bad situa-
tion fast. If you have a cat,
always check inside large
appliances before closing the
door many just love to
hide out in the dryer!
6. Pack away precious
breakables. If you're getting
a new pet, pack away pre-
cious items until your pet has
had a chance to become
accustomed to its new sur-
roundings. Cats will jump on
tables, cabinets, sideboards
and bookshelves to investi-
gate, and puppies will crawl
in corners, jump on couches
and race through your house
when they are excited.
7. Make sure your screen
door has a secure latch. Pets
are safest indoors when not
attended. Don't run the risk
that your pet could slip out
when you're not looking.
Whether your pet is a dog, or
a cat that never goes out,
ALL pets need proper ident-
ification that includes a
phone number where you
can be contacted.

World Peace Day brought many different people to Epiphany


BY JAN FINDLEY
CORRESPONDENT

Let me tell you my story of
how I found myself, some-
.what surprised, attending a
French Mass at Epiphany
Cathedral along with some
2,500 Haitians some visit-
ing from Haiti for this even
some as refugees, some as
former Haitians, now Amer-
icans.
The surprising part is that I
am neither Haitian nor Cath-
olic.
But there I was. And I was
enchanted. It was a full Mass
complete with richly
adorned priests, a bishop, an
archbishop and all of the
paraphernalia that goes with
the Mass, from Kyrie to Gloria,
Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus
and Agnus Dei. The works.

ers" (Lonely Planet, $14.99)
Lonely Planet travel editor
Don George has compiled a
delectable-collection of travel
tales by some of his favorite
writers many famous, oth-
ers being published here for
the first time. They include
Pico Iyer on Mandalay, Dave
Eggers on Havana, Tim Cahill
on the Turkish border with
Iraq, Simon Winchester on
tiny Ascension Island in the
Atlantic Ocean and Douglas
Cruickshank on London
(specifically, a London taxi-
cab). There are also tales of.
mistaken identity in the
streets of Casablanca, being
mesmerized by tango dancers
in Buenos Aires and then
learning a beauty lesson from
a stubborn sales clerk, and the
unbelievable coincidence of
running into the same
stranger three times in three
different countries during a
nine-month period. Jan Mor-
ris, that indefatigable traveler,
opens the collection with a
lovely essay on kindness. She
is a firm believer in it. "I think
it is the answer to almost all
our problems: from the mis-
eries of divorce to nuclear
proliferation." With a preface
by the Dalai Lama. (ISBN 1-
74059-590-4)i.
"The Far-Farers: A Journey
from Viking Iceland to Cru-
sader Jerusalem" (Walker &
Company, $28)
It would be perfectly
understandable if the modem
reader fails, at first blush, to
see any similarity between
Iceland at the turn of the sec-
ond millennium and our own
21st Century. And yet Victoria
Clark uses her journalistic
powers of persuasion to con-
vince us how a young Viking
named Thorvald, his conver-
sion to Christianity and his
foolhardy journey to Jer-
usalem- the ancient heart of
Christendom along with a
band of abbots, kings, saints,
warrior popes, monks, her-
mits and various pilgrims
indeed have much in com-
mon with our own turn-of-
the century condition. From
Iceland to the Holy Land,
from the Crusades to the
World Trade Center, Clark
embarks on a personal jour-
ney to discover the connec-
tion between the two periods.
She traveled trom Iceland's
black mountains through
Western Europe, across the


Alps to Italy, through the
northern Balkans, across a
good chunk of Turkey, down
the eastern coast of the
Mediterranean, and, finally, to
Jerusalem itself. Part history,
part journalism, part travel
narrative, "The Far-Farers" is a
timely but also entertaining
encounter with history. (ISBN
0-8027-1422-6)


Holy Communion was offered by two priests. It was amazing Members of the Haitian congregation.who came from all around Florida, nearby states and
how fast the worshipers completed this act of faith. Within 5 even from Haiti
minutes the 2,500 had completed this part of the service.


How did I get into this situ-
ation?
.I didn't read the instruc-
tions. Pure and simple. (Pure
stupidity and simple me.)
It was Peace Day and I had
attended the morning session
of the peaceniks, which was
held in the sanctuary of
Epiphany Cathedral in Ven-
ice.
We adjourned for lunch in
Parish Hall and were to
reassemble at 1 p.m. Since the
morning session had been
held in the cathedral, I
assumed the afternoon ses-
sion would be, too, so I put


my copy of the program in my
purse and enjoyed the sand-
wiches and the displays.
When 12:45 p.m. came, I
headed back to the cathedral.
It was a wrong move. The
cathedral was crowded, and I
focused on getting down
front where I would have a
good place from which to
shoot pictures of the after-
noon presenters at the Peace
Day program.
I began to suspect some-
thing was different when a
parade of seven or eight
priests came into view and
began fussing around the


altar, adjusting here, placing
items here and there. Then
Bishop Nevins appeared,
along with a shorter black
man with the same high,
pointed headpiece.
"Oh, oh," I said to myself.-
But being down front and
center stage (so to speak),
there was no way I could
gracefully exit myself.
So I sat back and viewed
the entire Mass, heard the
entire liturgy and responses
and the singing.
I haven't a clue as to what
was said, although since I was
in a church I had, a pretty


good idea of why everyone
was there. But every word
spoken was in French. And I
flunked French.
Even Bishop Nevins'
French was a little shaky
when he read his welcome to
the Haitians in that language.
(He read his message phonet-
ically from a piece of paper.)
Bishop Nevins reverted to
English to conclude, "I apolo-
gize for my poor delivery of
French, but be assured that I
love each of you very much."
He got a rousing ovation
from the worshipers who, I
suspect, had a better under-


standing of English than he
did of French.
Certainly more than I do.
And that's how I came to
spend the afternoon of the
first day of the year celebrat-
big NMass with 2,500 Haitians
and the Archbishop of Port au
Prince, Haiti.
Where was the Peace Day
program taking place? Back
in Parish Hall, of course,
which I would have known
had I bothered to read the
program.
But never mind. I celebrat-
ed Peace Dayin an unexpect-
ed, different and grand way.

OUR VIEW




s record full of broken promises


W e remember well how comforting the
words of President George W. Bush
were back in August and September
of 2004. Hurricanes had left most of us shell
shocked, and we were wondering how we
would ever recover.
Then Bush flew in to tell us to not despair.
Help was on the way, he said, in the form of
$13.6 billion in hurricane aid. The money
would help us clean up, rebuild and he
told Congress it was solely for hurricane
relief efforts.
That was then, this is now. And now means
that after paying for emergency recovery
costs overtime for police, first and emer-
gency workers and debris cleanup, a por-


tion of that money is gone. Last week we
found out that another chunk of the money
was spent on FEMA's past-due bills and
recovery efforts for other catastrophes.
If you are feeling a little shortchanged, you
are not alone.
Before anyone would suggest we are bad
sports, let's review what we were told. We
were told and Congress was told the
money was for hurricane recovery only. We
were assured by the president and his broth-
er, Gov. Jeb Bush, that money would be there
to help us come back from four devastating
hurricanes.
Now, county' governments are. struggling
to pay for debris pick-up. FEMA is sending


mixed messages on whether it will cover the
costs of cleaning up debris from private
property. Various county governments are
scrambling to get a place in line for funding
to pay for replacement of destroyed infra-
structure and buildings and to build hurri-
cane-proof shelters.
That FEMA could/would redirect such a
large slice of recovery funds to other places
without the knowledge of our representatives
in the U.S. Senate and House is surprising.
We expect Reps. Katherine Harris and Mark
Foley and Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez
to be watching out for us.
Alot needs to happen in the next fewweeks.
First, Congress should look into exactly


where all the money went. We need an
accounting of how taxpayers' moneywas used.
Then, we need to find out how much is left
and what costs are eligible for reimburse-
ment. We need some formula to determine
which areas the hardest hit or the most
economically damaged will be taken care
of first and how much they might receive.
A lack of communication and a lack of
oversight have turned the best of intentions
into anguish and disappointment on the part
of hurricane victims.
No one wants to point fingers. We just
want some explanation of what is going on.
We need to know where the money is
going before it is all gone.


Senior power


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

A couple of weeks ago
Marc Freedman, founder of
Civic Ventures, gave an inspir-
ing speech at the Chelsea
Center in Sarasota sponsored
by Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice. He is
an author and expert in the
field of senior involvement,
S\th his company striving to
find ways to get older people
involved.
He talked about the history
of senior involvement and
how it was very common-
Splace until the implementa-
tion of Social Security. He said
that has changed, though, as
retirees in selected locations
have made a huge impact on
their communities. I would
submit that could be said
about Venice.
He mentioned that there
was going to be a "Florida-
zation of America" and a
"Geezer Glut" as the senior
population doubles every 25
to 30 years. To take advantage
of all. this talent, he talked
about how we need a G.I. Bill-
type of program as a concert-
ed, coordinated way to get
seniors involved.
I think he likened it to a
seniors Peace Corps. He was
disappointed no national
organization had tackled the
'task of coordinatingthe use of
T all of this talent.
He talked of the "passion
never dying."
I think our community is
one that has mobilized this
group to do wonders all over,
from volunteering at the hos-
pital, libraries, American
Cancer Society; and cham-
ber, to the Senior Friendship
Center and lots of other ser-
vice groups.
The work just now reach-
ing completion on behalf of
the United Way and its 24
Agencies by Bay Indies is a
magnificent example.. Bay
SIndies Chair Bob Summitt
and his incredible committee
set a lofty goal of $16,000 this
year. They are almost through
and have about $17,500. This
is an example how seniors
^ make a huge difference.
I only wish events put on
Sby the foundation were done
in its service area.
Speaking of United Way,
we have hit 90 percent of the
goal of $525,000. Unfortun-
ately, our goal was set before
the hurricanes, so our agen-
cies could use more. Thanks
to all, although we could use
n that extra push to get us way
over the top.
This Tuesday a portion of
.. proceeds from all meals at the


Crow's Nest and Bogey's will
go to our goal.

By's Crack: Education
has changed a lot since I
went to school. In those
days you didn't get credit
for learning about sex -
you got punished.


This cute little girl has the
same charming smile she did
about 49 years ago. She
makes it her business to help
people have fun. I'll reveal ou
sweetheart later.

Area seniors need to be more accepting


The girls basketball team
had a great season, becoming
the third Venice High team to,
at least win second place in,
the state. Two of the girls, Lisa
Hough ,and Natalie Gaud-
reau, have been in the finals
'in two sports (volleyball and
basketball) in the same build-
ing (Lakeland Center) in the
same year. Congrats to all on
an incredible year. I lost my
voice screaming at the games.

Someone dropped off a
clip from the Chicago Sun
Times with a title on the
photo: "No gondola rides to-
day." The picture was of
parked gondolas in Venice,
Italy, with a lot of snow on
them. I think we live in the
:bestVenice. /
******
A caller last week alerted
me to a couple of ospreys that
had begun to make a nest on
top of the crane parked on the
waterway at the train depot.
The crane has since lowered
the boom on the ospreys..
SThe caller had a great idea
that I have passed on: a series
of osprey stands along the
Venetian Waterway Park.
Faith Pridmore, the VWP
head honcho, likes the idea,
as does President Terry Red-
man, who is one of the top
environmentalists in the,
county.

Editor:
' I'm a parent who has a young son who plays baseball and
football in the city of Venice. I think it is a shame our children
are being penalized and discriminated against by the senior
citizens in this area. '
If the older generation would just take time to get to know
the children and join iW some of the activities in this town, they
would have a good time.
The older generation should learn to accept the younger
generation along with everybody else. They will be the ones
running things in the future.
The children in this community already have fewer things to
keep them busy than just a year ago. They need to have some-
thing to keep their brains active.
I have a hard time believing that playing ball at noon would
have any effect on the neighboring parks. It is the middle of the
day. What's going to happen next? Are they going to close down
the schools because the children happen to get a little noisy
aftertthey get let out?
The children of Venice should be able to play here as well. as
live here. It is unfair to the children and their families to have to
go to Sarasota to play ball just because the older generation
thinks it should make all the rules.
Something has to be changed about this or there will be'
fewer and fewer of the younger generation to take care of the
older generation. Will that be accepted?

Martin off base
about Detert
Editor:
Columnist Ed Martin's re-
cent article on Florida Sen.
Lisa Carlton was accurate.
.She has done much, as our
representative and as our cur-
rent senator.
But to take a slap at. our
present representative, Nancy
Detert, is hitting pretty low. If
Mr. Martin had observed Rep.
Detert's performance in the
Legislature, if he had watched
her close at hand, he would
know she is outspoken when
it comes to her district. And
,she has stood face to face with
Gov. Jeb Bush in working for
house bills that would benefit
the constituents from her
area.
She has an open-door pol-


icy and is always available to
her constituents. She has the'
respect of other legislators
and has won numerous
awards from across the state
of Florida for her many
accomplishments. "
It would appear that Mr.
Martin has not sat down to
discuss political issues or
other issues affecting our
community with her or her
staff.
May I suggest (no disre-
spect intended) that Mr.
Martin stick to finding sharks'
teeth on Venice Beach, or do
his homework before criticiz-
ing a very able representative
who is doing a good job for
her district.

Thanks for a
good Samaritan
Editor:
I hope that you will publish
my letter of thanks to the lady
who handed in my wallet she
found at the Beall's Outlet.
I am most grateful to her

prayers for a longtime.

the last six weeks enjoying
lovely warm weather.

Outraged by
road rage claim
Editor:
Ellen Hillstrom stated in
her weekly column that traffic
jams on South U.S. 41 from
Shamrock Drive to Manatee
Community College's Venice
campus have caused road
rage among South Venice
working families trying to get
to their jobs and get their chil-
dren to school. Are there any
statistics to support this com-
ment?
I drive between SouthVen-
ice Boulevard and Rockley
Boulevard every day to get to
and from work. I have no road
rage because of my routine. I
know the hot spots and pro-
ceed with concentration and
caution. I have never wit-
nessed parents transporting
their kids to. Taylor Ranch
Elementary driving in a state
of road rage. After all, their
cargo is precious.
If we are going to unjustly
and unfairly label the driving
habits bf a certain demo-
graphic group within our
community, wouldn't it be
just as easy to say that traffic
jams have caused road rage
among South Venice retirees
trying to get to Bob Evans for
breakfast or the Outback for


dinner?

For a few dollars more
Editor:
It is interesting to note that
the county of Sarasota can
spend $100,000 to construct
wheelchair bypasses on the
Venice. Avenue Bridge but
can't afford to pressure wash
and paint the bridge to match
the two new (Hatchett Creek
and South) bridges. The ap-
pearance of the bridge is
deplorable, even after spend-,
ing $3.5 million.

Don't ask a bald
barber about hair
Editor:
President Bush said he will
be willing to listen to all ideas
about saving Social Security.
He said the process will be
"open and candid." Then he
immediately ruled out raising
the Social Security income
cap on wages.
Of course, we can expect
the same "open and candid"
approach we got from him
with. his secret testimony
before the 9/11 Commission;
his scare tactics to justify the
Iraq war; the drug plan to pro-
tect pharmaceutical compa-
nies; the tax cut for the rich;
the record budget deficit; the
record trade deficit, etc.
, "Open and candid," "wise
and effective" give me a
break.
President Bush is now
going after the one thing in
government that has worked
successfully for more than 60

like going to a bald barber for
advice on how to keep your
hair.


If President Bush wants a
legacy in his lame-duck term,
he should do this: Fix the
things that are broken and
don't break the things that are

Murray Chase's condo, or
whatever it is on the top of the
Venice Little Theatre that I
bashed last week, has been
beautifully painted closely
matching the rest of the
building. I guess while the city
was looking for that the in-
spectors found the terrible-
looking and unsafe front of
the old ABC that is one of the
first things people see when
they come into town. It needs
some fascia and maybe more.
Incidentally, the theater is

.times this year the hospital
has not been equipped to

Of course, people are un-

There was a nice reception
for Melody Trimble, the new

nice way to help welcome her

been said if the CEO had been
a man and there was a recep-

it discrimination.

Fighting the good fight against pests in Florida


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER


Computer monitors. Light
switches. Electric juicers.
These are all places that
,A ants have decided to set up
"house in Florida. But before
you go running for a fumiga-
tor, know that all insects don't
respond to the same treat-
ment.
"You've got to identify
what you are dealing with,"
said Fred Santana, Sarasota
County Integrated Pest Man-
agement coordinator. "It
doesn't help to just spray."
Santana offers advice
about many common house-
hold pests including ants,
cockroaches, flies, wasps,
fleas, rats and mice, including
how to take control of your
indoor environment by using
safe .. and common-sense
strategies.
"We really don't like to see
homeowners using sprays,"
Santana said. "Sprays are
toxic, and you have to know
what you are doing."
What Santana and the
University of Florida's Insti-


tute of Food and Agricultural
Services recommend instead
is an integrated pest manage-
ment system identifying,
locating and monitoring
pests. Santana said proper
identification is essential.
"Make a small alcohol vial
collection," Santana said.
"Check the Internet. If you
can't figure it out, stick the
critter to some Scotch tape
and bring it to the extension
service."
Know your enemy
Two species that are often
confused are termites and fly-
ing ants. A termite's front and
hind wings are of equal size;
an ant's front wings are bigger
than the back ones. The waist
of a termite is almost as wide
as its abdomen; ants have
very constricted waists. The
antenna of a termite is
thread-like; an ant's antenna
is elbowed.
Ants, in fact, are the No. 1
nuisance in Florida, Santana
said. There are 12,000 species
worldwide, and more than
200 species in Florida. Of
those 200, less than a dozen


are pests. But you have to
know which ones you are
dealing with.
"The granular baits usually
aren't an effective tactic on
sugar-liquid feeders such as
the Argentine, crazy, ghost
and white-footed ants," San-
tana said. "But fire ants, big-
headed and pharaoh ants will
respond to it."
However, those with ant
problems will want to get
baits with sweet, oily and pro-
tein foods. Ants actually eat
food they are in the mood for.,
Santana said fresh bait
needs to be used. Soybean oil
carriers will go rancid at high
temperatures, so storing
them in the garage is not a
good idea. Containers also
need to be air-tight. Santana
suggests covering containers
with a plastic bag before reap-


plying the lid.
Santana said a combination
of mound baiting and area
broadcasting may be neces-
sary. Spectracide, Ortho Fire
Ant Killer Bait and-Amdro are
all considered safe pesticides.
However,, watch for pyramid
ant nests outside. The mounds
look like a volcano.
"They are native ants,"
Santana said. "Pyramid ants
do not sting or bite."
Get a cat
Maybe even more so than
ants, the bug most associate
with Florida is the roach. Ger-
man, Australian, American
and Florida Woods cock-
roaches are all sometimes po-
litely called "palmetto bugs."
But roaches are something
you definitely don't want in
the house.


"They carry diseases in
their bodies and feces," San-
tana said. "Large indoor pop-
ulations are the leading cause
of asthma and bronchial dis-
orders."
Preventing roach infesta-
tion is surprisingly easy:
Empty indoor trash contain-
ers frequently; clean out sink
strainers and run garbage dis-
posals frequently; wash dish-
es immediately after a meal;
keep grease and crumbs from
collecting on or under kitch-
en appliances; sweep and
vacuum floors and furniture
where people eat; keep food
preparation and storage areas
clean; and keep food sealed
tight.
"The single most important
factor in determining cock-
roach survival is availability of
water," Santana said. "Fix


plumbing leaks, don't leave
water in bathtubs or sinks,
empty pet water dishes at
night, don't overwater indoor
plants, do not leave out cups
with liquid in them and wipe
and empty condensation pans
under refrigerators."
Mice and rats are also at-
tracted to food sources, such
as fallen fruit from trees. San-
tana said trees should never
touch the roof of your house.
"They serve as bridges," he
said.
Santana suggested sealing
cracks and other openings
with gnaw-proof material
and proper sanitation.
In the fight against ro-
dents, there is one method
that will pretty much guaran-
tee a rat-free home. "If you
have a cat," he said, "you will
not have a rodent problem."

Spate of small break-ins reported in Englewood


Little was taken in any of the crimes, all of which
were on the Sarasota County side of town.


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office has reported an,
increase in burglaries of late,
the most recent being a
break-in at Olms Realty on
South McCall Road early last
week.
Business owner Frank
Olms said nothing of signifi-
cant value was taken only a
box of Royal Dutch cookies
and a cluster of grapes.
And Sarasota County Dep-
uty William Allen, who was at
the scene dusting for finger-
prints, said nothing of value
had been taken during the
other break-ins either.
"The problem is it's still a
felony burglary when they
break into a business," Allen
said.
All the incidents were near
Dearborn Street and State
Road 776.


At the Verizon building on
S.R. 776, a company truck was
broken into recently, but
nothing of value was taken
from the truck.
An attempt to break the
window at the nearby Wal-
greens pharmacy failed be-
cause the window is bullet-
proof, Allen said.
Burglars also entered the
building situated between the
Verizon and Walgreens re-
cently. But the thieves found
nothing, because the building
was empty at the time.
The Olms Realty theft was
the first of the burglaries in
which anything was stolen.
The M.O.
There was some routine to
the time of the break-ins; The
Sarasota County Sheriffs Of-
fice said all break-ins occur-
red between the hours of 1
a.m. and 6 a.m.
Fingerprints and foot-


prints at the scene indicated
the suspects might be small-
ish or, perhaps, teenagers,
Allen said. The small, broken
window through which one
thief managed to crawl also
indicated the burglar or bur-
glars were thin. *
Allen said the perpetrators
left through the front door.
The Charlotte County side
of Englewood reported no
blip on the crime radar screen
lately.
Lt. James Kenville of the
Charlotte County Sheriffs
Office in Englewood said had
not noticed an increase in
Englewood business burglar-
ies.
"We've been pretty fortu-
nate," Kenville said. "I can't
say there's been a spike of
burglaries. Right now, I
haven't seen a big increase."
Kenville said one car was
reported stolen over the
weekend.

Q. I have roses I planted last fall. They have gone through the summer and now what
(do they need to revive them for the fall?
A. Roses do well here if planted correctly. They will survive for quite a few years with
care, spraying, and fertilization. Roses should be cut back in November or December
for the spring new growth. Cut them back at least to 1 foot. They will come out with a
great deal of new growth and this is where the new blooms come from.
You should fertilize them every two weeks, because Roses bloom themselves to death.
Therefore they require a great deal of feed. It wouldn't hurt to give them blood and
bone meal as well as a balanced Rose food. Fertilome puts out a good rose food, with
or without systemic insecticide. Don't be fooled by the word systemic. In the right text
it means systemic insecticide, but some of the companies will use the world confusingly
it really means show release fertilizer. So make sure when you pick up any
product read the label well.
Don't forget to spray for insects or mites. Roses are a wonderful host plant
for spider mites. There are several chemicals that will take care of insects and
fungus (block spot). Come by DUKE GARDEN CENTER and find out the WINNER
latest on roses and rose care.

POLISHING FILLINGS?
After a filling is placed, it should be smooth and carved to natural
tooth contours. Polishing fillings to a high luster is not necessary.
Sufficient smoothness can be obtained by burnishing amalgam fillings
just after placement. Composite fillings are more likely to require
polishing to remove excess margin material.
In time, amalgam fillings may darken and cause a slight darkening of
enamel. They may also become a little uneven at the edges often
forming a small crevice at the junction with the tooth surface. Because
of slight metal corrosion, these crevices fill in and actually improve the
seal of almagram against bacterial penetration. Even if it looks a little
"shaggy" the filling may not need to be replaced.
Polishing amalgam periodically to smooth the edges is usually not
necessary unless it eliminates a potential food trap area. If the defect is
slight, as described above, nothing is gained. If it is large, polishing
will not solve the problem, and the filling should be replaced.

Judicial Center sculpture 'Centripetal'

to be presented March 10
A 17.5-foot bronze sculpture commissioned'under the Sarasota County Arts in Public
Places Program will be presented to the public at a 1 p .m, ,:rerr,.rny Thurrday March.
10, in front of the Sarasota County Judicial Center, 20C2 F:r.,ing Bl.u, downlcwn
Sarasota.
Sculptor John Medwedeff of Murphysboro, Ill., will be on hand for the brief ceremony
on the grassy area immediately in front of the Judicial Center. His sculpture is titled
"Centripetal," referring to forces that impel objects toward a center of rotation, according 'to
the artist.
"The physical manifestation of this force is the helix form, a fundamental structure in
nature, present in everything from the tissues of living organisms to weather patterns,"
Medwedeff said.
The $75,500 commission is funded by public art set-aside funds from the construction
of the nearby county jail complex. In October 2003, the Board of County Commissioners
awarded the contract to Medwedeff, who was one three finalists selected by the Judicial
Complex Project Jury from a field of 62 artists who responded to the county's "call to
artists" invitation.
Public parking for the ceremony is available in the county parking garage at the corner
of Ringling Boulevard and East Avenue.
