Alleged




sexual abuse




victim talks


Accuser says he would sit in class watching the
clock, dreading the moment when his abuser
would get him out of class and take him home.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

His mouth and face tight-
ened, his eyes overflowed. He
tried to wipe the rage from his
cheeks with his fists.
"He'd take me out of class,
pull me out of the pool, take
me from school to his house,"
the victim said. "All I could
think of was, let's get this over
with."
He knew it was wrong
then, but as a boy, felt there
was little he could do to stop
it.
The victim said he had not
a moment's peace.
"I'd sit there in class watch-
ing the clock," he said, "just
waiting, then, sure enough ..."
After all, James LaMorte
Sr., now 62, whom the alleged
victim accuses of sexually
abusing him, was a close fam-
ily friend of the victim's family
and aide facto mentor.
." And I protected his family
all these years (by not saying
anything). Well, I'm all done
with that," the victim said.
"Yes, I'd like to see him go to
jail and yes, I want him to rot
in hell. He's a piece of --."
Peter Collins, LaMorte's
attorney, said LaMorte denies
all of the allegations.

Venice support of Habitat irks North Port


Council supports request to give Habitat for
Humanity 100 lots, even though Venice has no
such plan of its own.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

One option for at least 100
of the disputed Sarasota
County-owned lots in the city
of North Port is with Habitat
for Hurnanit Venice Area Inc.
That sounds like such a
great idea, Venice City
Council unanimously
approved sending a letter off
to county commissioners


saying they support the dona-
tion even though Venice
doesn't have its own plan to
help the affordable housing
group based in its own back
yard.
North Port City
Commission chair Richard
Lockhart wasn't real happy
about Venice's opinion on lots
within his borders.
"It doesn't sit well with me
to have that suggestion com-,


Water warning continues


STAFF REPORT


Robert's Bay remains
under a health and safety
advisory through the week-,
end, according to Sarasota
County Health Department.
Residents. are urged not
to wade, swim, fish, jet ski or
engage in any other water
sports in the area of Santa
Maria Street and North
Nokomis Avenue in Venice.
The advisory is a result of
Thursday's 35,000 gallon
sewage spill. Water samples'
will be collected on a daily


basis through the weekend.:
There is no health and
safety advisory in effect at
bathing beaches at this
time.
Residents and visitors
can go to wwxv.scgov.net to
check water-test results of
area bathing beaches or call
the Sarasota County Health
Department's Environ-
mental Health office at 861-
6133.
The Sarasota County
Health Department will
issue additional updates
Monday.

said. "It's no skin off their
noses, I suppose. It's a warm-
ing feeling, but not at our
expense. ... I wouldn't want
them building 100 houses in
our city."
The merits of Habitat's
request of Sarasota County
and North Port commission-
ers could get lost if the settle-
ment deal for more than
2.200 lots, agreed to Dec. 7,
falls through.
North Port residents have

Officials speak out on traffic


The city's dirty little
secret is out in the fresh
air. Elected officials and
police are scrambling
to do something about
traffic congestion.
BYTOMMY MCINT1RE
STAFF WRITER

Venice's "quaint, charm-
ing" drawbridges are largely
responsible for traffic conges-
tion on the. island, the city's
top elected official said.'

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second part of a two-part story
on traffic congestion in Venice.
"The drawbridges are defi-
nite bottlenecks," Venice
Mayor Dean Calamaras said.
"We may have to revisit that."
Most public officials and
public servants are afraid to
criticize the drawbridges
because they are viewed by'
many as the very essence of
the town's identity and the
core of its legacy.
And, as such, they are con-
sidered sacred cows to be
spoken of only in hushed


tones and to do otherwise
is heresy...
Calamaras said timed
openings on the bridges
might alleviate some of the
congestion. However, thebU.S.
Coast Guard regulates every-
thing to do with the bridges,
and it is unlikely it would
change anything that would
interfere with a vessel's "right
of way."
Finally, there is little that
can be done about the
medieval bridges save filling
in the Intracoastal Waterway

ty at next week's OPEC meet-
ing.
But doomsday is not upon
us, said Michael Rose of
Angus Jackson, a futures trad-
ing firm in Fort Lauderdale.
"I have looked at all the
statistics and all the stuff we
have in storage and, as far as
supply and demand goes, we
are doing just fine," Rose said.
"The markets are just reacting
to really frigid temperatures
in the northeast and a lot of
rhetoric coming out of the
Middle East."
"There is no shortage any-
where," agreed James Cordier,
president of Liberty Trading
Group in St. Petersburg. "The
Northeast is experiencing
unusually cold weather,
boosting prices of energy
higher than they belong."
Reprieve... in May
Rose and Cordier say the
spike-is speculative in nature,
though they concede .prices
are likely to remain high
because the global economy
is growing.
Cordier said Wednesday's
boost in crude oil will take a
week to 10 days to show at the
pumps.
"We could see an 8- to 10-
cent increase in the pump by
the middle of March and
another 2- to 4-cents at the
end of N larch." he said.
That will be the peak,
Cordier said, at least through
Memorial Day. "When the


weather breaks, when we
return to 60-70-80 degree
temperatures, then we will
get a reprieve," he said.
When prices will stabilize
is "the million-dollar ques-
tion," Rose said.
"I think it's pretty close to
the top for the short run for
the next four to six weeks," he
said.
Weak dollar
Laskoski said AAA was
"kind of surprised" when the
U.S. Department of
Commerce recently issued a
statement predicting the
average price nationwide for
a gallon of regular unleaded
will be $2.10 from April
through September.
But that forecast could
prove true, he said.
"Americans are paying a
premium at the pump now
because of the weak U.S. dol-
lar," Laskoski said. "We are
also, unfortunately, subject to
the weather."
The lingering bitter cold
weather in the Northeast has
kept refineries producing
more heating fuel than nor-
rmal this time of year, he said.
This has delayed the sea-
sonal shift to increased
motor-fuel. production,
Laskoski said.
"The timing of this is when
you have a seasonal trarnsi-
tion, it's not like flipping a
switch," he said. "It impacts
their capacity to produce."


Right now, Laskoski said,
U.S. refineries are operating
at 89 percent capacity. "That's
the lowest they've been at for
four, five months," he said.
Perspective
Laskoski said things could
be worse. "One thing
Floridians should be grateful
about is they're not in
California," he said.
There, the statewide aver-
age for a gallon of gas is $2.25.
As Jim Brand of Punta
Gorda filled his tank at the
Sunoco on U.S. 41, he was
resigned to being soaked at
the pumps.
"I bet (prices) are going to
keep going up," he said,
before shrugging, "What are
you going to do?"

Real planning commission action is Wednesday


Tuesday's regular meeting is light on substance,
but a joint session with city council the next day
deals with a controversial development.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Diehard fans of Venice
Planning Commission can
show up for Tuesday's 1:30
p.m. meeting and hear about
needed zoning amendments
for a new park next to Venice
Little Theatre.
Or, those residents can
show up at 1:30 p.m. Wed-
nesday to find out the latest
about the proposedVilla Lago
development.
A joint meeting between
city council and planning
commission has been called
at the request of Villa Lago's
attorney, Jeff Boone. The
developer, Balsinger Proper-
ties, had its plans for 51
triplexes kicked back to staff


Dec. 14 after council refused
to vote on it.
Two months before that,
planning commission would-
n't endorse the zoning re-
quest and rejected it by a 6-1
vote.
"It is the petitioner's desire
to present city council and
planning commission with
proposed design alternatives
which address concerns rais-
ed during the first reading of
the rezoning petition," wrote
Tom Slaughter, planning and
zoning director, to council
members.
On the table is a request for
planned unit development
rezoning to allow 151 living
units to be built on 46 acres
along Pinebrook Road just
north of Edmondson Road.


The workshop's goal is to
identify what members of
council and planing commis-
sion expect. This PUD zoning
requires a prehearing, and at
that August session the major
concerns of commission
members revolved around
monotony of design, pocket
parks and view of the devel-
opment from
Pinebrook
Road.
When
developers
returned in
, October for
approval,
commission-
ers focused
more on den- Boone
sity issues and
whether Villa Lago was out of
character with neighboring
properties. They would deny
approval by a 6-1 vote, and
then city council refused to
vote two months after that.


The planning commission
denial was due in large part to
getting "unintentionally
sandbagged" at the hearing,
Boone said Dec. 14. Devel-
opers showed up ready to dis-
cuss monotony issues, and
the conversation dipped into
density and how it is comput-
ed using gross acreage
instead of buildable area.
About 26 percent of Villa
Lago's 46 acres is covered by
wetlands. That, coupled with
PUD zoning, means develop-
ers would only build on 43
percent of the land about
20 acres worth.
The official density would
be 3.27 units per acre, but for-
mer planning commission
member Greg Shanika point-
ed out in October those 20
acres would actually be at 7.5
units per acre. Shanika's term
expired earlier this year, and
Mayor Dean Calamaras
declined to reappoint Shani-


ka in favor of former council
member Jim Myers.
Wednesday's agenda does
not allow for public com-
ment. Only Boone, the devel-
oper's attorney, is listed as
speaking.

Tuesday's meeting
Here's what is on the agen-
da for the actual planning
commission meeting at 1:30
p.m. Tuesday in council
chambers of city hall:
Foundation Park -
Changes to the city's compre-
hensive plan future land use
map and accompanying re-
zone petition will be up for a
vote. The 0.29 acres at 100 W.
Tampa Ave. is now owned by
the city, after the land was
donated by Sarasota Conser-
vation Foundation. Zoning
will go from commercial
business district to govern-
ment use. Gulf Coast Com-


munity Foundation of Venice
put up the nearly $413,000
that SCF needed to buy the
land, and the city will pay to
convert it into an urban park
area and entrance to the
Venetian Waterway Park.
Board consolidations -
Needed ordinances and text
amendments will appear for
approval that affect the func-
tions of plairnnfig commis-
sion, Board of Zoning
Appeals, historic preservation
and the Architectural Review
Board. BZA will be eliminated
and its duties given to the
planning commission, arid
preservation of historic build-
ings will now go to the Venice
Historical Commission and
be removed from the ARB's
plate,. if both changes get
council's approval.

Ordinance requires hurricane precautions at construction sites


A similar measure appears on its way to passage
by Venice City Council, over the vigorous objec-
tion of several members.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Joining the city of Venice,
Sarasota County commis-
sioners will consider Tuesday
an ordinance to diminish the
amount of potential hurri-
cane projectiles.
Similar to an ordinance in
Venice that passed its first
reading last week, the coun-
ty's ordinance would require
that people secure all con-
struction-related material
within 24 hours of the
issuance of a hurricane watch
or warning. Violators could be
punished with a fine up to
$500 or a jail term up to 60
dhys.
In addition, the ordinance
gives the county's building
official authority to close
dow\n a cbnostructiorniproject


until those in charge comply
with the ordinance and pur-
sue further disciplinary
action against licensed con-
tractors who violate the ordi-
nance.
Paul Radauskas, the coun-
ty's building official, met with
members of the Home-
builders Association, the Gulf
Coast Builders Exchange and
the county's Development
Services Advisory Committee.
Those groups have all object-
ed to the proposed ordinance
because they perceive that it
is aimed at the construction
industry.
Those groups feel the ordi-
nance ought to apply to all
businesses throughout the
county.
"The fact remains that fly-
ing materials during hurri-
canes can originate not only


from construction sites; but
from all businesses and pri-
vate homes that have not
properly secured their out-
door displays, furniture, flags,
trash cans or whatever,"
wrote Dickson Clements,
HBA executive vice president,
in a letter to Radauskas.
"To single out the con-
struction
M industry on
this ordinance
is simply an
action in
restraint of
trade. There-
fore, if such an
ordinance is
necessary in
Mthe best inter-
Merer est of the pub-
lic's health, welfare and safety,
we insist that it apply to all
businesses, industries and
private homeowners."

Not sensitive
Clements has proposed an


amendment to the ordinance
that would remove the words
"construction-related" from
the ordinance and include
outdoor displays, furniture,
flags and trash cans, making it
clear the ordinance applied to
these items as well. At least
one county commissioner is
willing to listen.
"We need to make people
sensitive to their responsibili-
ties," said commissioner Paul
Mercier, who pointed to busi-
nesses like landscaping com-
panies that had material out-
side that could become po-
tential hurricane projectiles.
Mercier said the. issue was
one where more education
was needed. In addition, he
wondered how the ordi-
nance would be enforced.
Commissioners will meet
in regular session beginning
at 9 a.m. Tuesday and Wed-
nesday in Commission
Chambers in the CountyAd-
ministration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.

Red light bill



Introduced



- The cameras could be used to issue speeding
.tickets but not to take pictures for other purposes.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

A bill that would allow
,counties and cities to install
.cameras to detect red light
*.runners was introduced in
.the Florida Legislature this
-week.
The measure intro-
-*duced in the House by Rep.
Ron Reagan, R.-Bradenton
and in the Senate by Sen.
Steve Wise, R.-Jacksonville -
is one of Sarasota County's
key legislative
priorities as
t h e
-Legislature
.conducts its
:2005 session.
-Called the
MVIark Wandall
ngTraffic Safety i
Act, the bill
would allow Staub
,the installa-
tion of the cameras at inter-
sections with a state road to
take two color images show-
ing a vehicle clearly running a
red light. The bill provides
that the counties or cities
cannot use the cameras to
record "images of general
traffic conditions or activities
occurring within the intersec-
tion or surrounding areas."
A motorist caught running
a red light would then be
mailed a citation for a non-
criminal moving traffic viola-
tion, which carries a fine of
S$65. The citing county or city
would receive $5 of the fine,
when paid, and the remain-
ing $60 would be used by the
state to fund trauma services.
Senate President Tom Lee
has not assigned the bill to a)


VWP trailhead
renovation progressing
The old chamber building
continues to undergo renova-
tions as the trailhead of
Venetian Waterway Park, as
well as a storage area for city
records.
Tri-Tech Construction and
Design Company Inc. of
Bradenton is renovating the
building. The budget is
$340,000, of which nearly
$34,000 is for permits and
contingency funds.
Almost $100,000 is from
grant money awarded by the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
The rest is from the city's cap-
ital improvement fund.
Myakka park design
nearly complete
Design plans for Myakka
River Park are nearly com-
plete, keeping construction
dates on schedule and incor-
porating council requests for
the canoe launch be moved
closer to public parking area.
City council approved the.
design plans last November.
Total cost could be as
much as $800,000 to build the
park, located at the eastern
end of Laurel Road, so it will
be built in phases. The first
phase, at about $300,000, will
go out to bid after the design
plans are completed.
The 10-acre park will have
four small picnic shelters, two
playgrounds, shell-based
walking trails, parking lot for
37 cars, and a non-motorized
.boat launch. The land was
:-donated to the city by WCI
developers of Venetian Golf &
;River Club as part of its
,annexation agreement.
* Phase I includes the
restrooms, unpaved trails,
Sboat launch, half of the park-
,ing spots and signage.

committee, nor has House
Speaker Allan Bense, who
said last week he intended to
block the legislation, if intro-
duced, from consideration by
the full House. Bense, did
however, allow a first reading
of the bill to take place in the
House Tuesday.
A safety issue
Bense opposes the legisla-
tion because he views it as a
revenue-raising measure by
the counties and cities.
That's not the view of
Sarasota County officials.
"It's a matter of safety, not
revenue," said county com-
missioner Shannon Staub in
comments to a local home-
owners group in Englewood.
"We never considered the
dollars. It's always been a
safety issue for us."
Meanwhile, another bill
aimed at red light runners
passed the House Judiciary
Committee on Thursday.
Under that measure, the
fine for running a red light
would increase from $60 to
$125, and the points assessed
for the violation would rise
from three to four.,
According to a House staff
analysis, nearly 300,000 dri-
vers were ticketed and paid
the fine in 2003 for red light
running.
A similar bill in the Florida
Senate has not yet been
assigned to a committee.

ABUSE from page 1 A


investigators, according to
Venice police. The investiga-
tion is ongoing.
Uncoiling
The victim is now 39 years
old, a good-looking, hard-
ened man, still with a swim-
mer's wedge-shaped build
and a strong handshake. His
voice booms except when
LaMorte's name is men-
tioned.
Then, it becomes more
modulated, tentative, as if he
was measuring every word
and the person listening, like
a spring uncoiling.
The alleged victim was a
championship swimmer
barely out of his teens. He was
13 years old at the time when,
he said, LaMorte, then a swim
coach at the YMCA, first sexu-
ally assaulted him.
'"At least a hundred times it
went on after that," he said.
He said he did not tell his par-
ents because LaMorte was a
family friend, and the revela-
tion would have devastated
them.
The swim meet
There was the time at a
state swim meet in
Gainesville -in which the vic-
tim was scheduled to com-
pete.
"They had separate rooms
for boys and girls," he said.
"He (LaMorte) looked at me.
and told everybody, 'He's
sleeping with me.'"
LaMorte got his way, the
victim said.
"The next day I was dis-
qualified," he said.
Why?
"The night before, yeah,
sure, that's why. I was a little


"Yes, I'd like to see
him go to jail and yes,
I want him to rot in
hell."
the 39-year-old
who first accused a
former Venice coach
of sexual abuse

messed up with that," he said.
"He ruined my career."
The victim said he protest-
ed each time LaMorte
assaulted him, especially as
he got older and realized how
it was affecting his life.
"I'd say, 'I'm not into this,'
but it didn't make any differ-
ence," the victim said. "He's
just say, 'It's O.K., I did this to
your brother and he's fine
with it.' He knew what he was
doing."
No more smiles
The victim said the alleged
incidents with LaMorte
changed his entire life.
"Everybody, always liked
me before that, I was smiling,
they used to talk about how I
was always smiling and called
me Smiley," the victim said.
'"After, I felt downgraded, I
didn't want people to look at
me, I thought people hated
me, it was in my head."
The victim said he has not
been to a pool in years
because of the tortured mem-
ories he has of what the pool
represented during a four-
year period of his life.
The'victim freely admits he
has not been able to establish
a meaningful relationship


with a woman.
"He cost me two mar-
riages, my company, my self-
esteem," he said.
'You can't fake that'
Several times during the
interview the reporter would
ask a question that appeared
to be too invasive. The vic-
tim's eyes narrowed, his
mouth tightened and blood
rushed to his head. The tears
built up. His countenance
changed.
He stared directly into the
reporter's eyes, not speaking
for several moments, as if
measuring the reporter and
his own words with precision
before answered.
Because of the victim's
demeanor during the inter-
view, the visible, change in
him when LaMorte's name
was mentioned, the reporter
asked him if he would charac-
terize himself as a violent
man.
"I can have violent
thoughts sometimes if I think
about what happened," he
said, "but if he (LaMorte)
were to walk in here right
now, I'd leave."
The victim said he 'has
seen LaMorte on two occa-
sions since the incidents and
he was able to walk away.'
Robert Harrison, the vic-
tim's attorney, made an inter-
esting observation during the
interview as the victim's
demeanor changed when
LaMorte's name was men-
tioned.
"You can't fake that,"
Harrison said.
So far, five men have come
forward with claims that
LaMorte sexually abused


them when they were
between between 13 and 15
years old.
Authorities have stated
that it is unlikely that LaMorte
would face criminal charges
because of the statute of limi-
tations (four years for sexual
battery.)
However, Harrison said he
researched the statutes and
there may be a way the case
can move forward.
He said he believes the
statute of limitations is not as
clear as has been reported.
"There is a statute (ES.S.
775.15, (b)) dealing with mis-
conduct by public officers or
employees, that depending
on case law, could let a prose-
cution move forward. I have
shared that information with
the proper authorities,"
Harrison said.
Therapy
The victim is continuing
therapy that he began about
eight years ago.
He said it has helped him
reconcile what happened.
Even talking with police
investigators helped.
"They helped open the
door a little, then it opened
wider and wider," he said,
"and it felt good."
The reporter asked the vic-
tim if he thought the night-

HABITAT from page 1 A
agreement because the meet-
ing may not have had proper
public notice within city lim-
its.
County commissioners
will decide Tuesday if they're
willing to meet again at
North Port this time. Up for
debate is whether North Port
simply wants to make the
deal official or try to negotiate
a better settlement.
"We can't agree to the
agreement, and now they
want to take a look at the
agreement again. ... A discus-
sion at this stage in the game
(about Habitat) is a bit pre-
mature," said Paul Mercier,
chair of the Board of County
Commissioners.
Venice Habitat land?
Venice City Council sup-
ports the county and North
Port donating lots to Habitat,
even though it lacks any such,
program in Venice.
Council member RickTacy,
who made the motion
Tuesday, admits that could be
a credibility problem. Venice
has been working on an
inventory of city-owned
property it could donate to
Habitat, but to this date has
not reached any conclusions.
"My attitude is, if we're
supporting the county and
North Port to give up some
lots, the city of Venice should
try to come up with some
land of its own that would be
suitable," said Tacy, who's also
an ex-officio on the Venice
Housing Authority board and
often promotes affordable
housing programs.
Lack of land is what slows
Habitat from building more
houses, according to Tacy.


Habitat organizers and volun-
teers believe they could con-
struct as many as 10 homes
per year if they had the spots.
Unlike public housing,
Habitat builds and rehabili-
tates homes through volun-
teer labor and donated mate-
rials. Habitat houses are sold
to partner families at no prof-
it and financed with afford-
able, no-interest loans.
"What's so great about
Habitat, it's not about subsi-
dized housing;"' Tacy said.
"They, in my mind, basically
are bringing people and their
families and getting them a
house. It's not a matter of get-
t' ing them into a starter house.
Habitat houses are ones fam-
ilies move into with a plan to
stay there, to grow up there."
Collapsing deal
Most of those contacted
believe Venice made a good-
faith motion supporting
Habitat's request for the land
donation. North Port is only
about 20 minutes away from
Venice, depending on a per-
son's destination.
The major issue is how the
three-month-old agreement
hasn't been signed, and some
North Port commissioners
have. indicated they'd like to
renegotiate after residents
complained.
There are 2,200 lots scat-
tered throughout North Port
now owned by Sarasota
County because the owners
failed to pay property taxes
for three or more years. ,The
county assumed .ownership,
was about to sell. the lots to
recover the delinquent taxes

talk to us about what is best for your needs. It is getting time to
plant your summer shrubs and annuals. We are going to be in a
transition period for the next 3 months. There is a lot of color out
for the garden at this time and we have a lot of it on hand.. .
Remember though to fertilize what you have to make it look good '
also. Your trees need to be fertilized now. Citrus, need to
wait till May now, or just before you leave for the summer.
The insect problems will be coming soon. When the
temperature stays at 70 degrees or above the insects are

-NATURAL CROWDING
Even after orthodontic treatment has resulted in excellent tooth
alignment, there is the possibility of slight relapse due to the continued
bone growth. This may cause the front teeth to crunch together to
relieve the strain. There is a natural tendency for teeth to move forward,
to remain in contact with the tooth in front. At the midline, forces oni
one side are countered and neutralized by the opposite forces. This is
called the "anterior component of force".
The teeth are not set absolutely vertically in the bone but are tilted
toward the front of the jaw. As the teeth come together, in chewing and,
swallowing, forces are applied in a forward moving direction. This
action is usually sufficient to keep the teeth in contact with each other,
preventing separation and food impaction. If there is disharmony or
imbalance in these structures and forces, and if space is not sufficient,
the incisors tend to crowd and overlap. The movement is self-limiting
and harmless except for esthetic considerations.

and pounding the bridges to
rubble and scrap iron.
"It took an act of Congress
to dig it out," Calamaras joked
about the ICW, "and probably
it would take an act of
Congress to fill it in."
Venice Police Traffic
Officer Robert Goodson is
another one of a handful of
observers who dares to pub-
licly make the, connection
between the bridges and traf-
fic congestion.
"Of course the draw-
bridges (are a problem),"
-Goodson said, "but there are
:other things that contribute
to the congestion, like more
and more people each year,
disabled vehicles and crash-
,es."
Why blame the brdges?
The short answer is
.because they are there. But,
there is more to it.
There are three major
Intersections within 400 feet
of the Hatchett Creek and
MVenice Avenue bridges, all
-crossing U.S. 41 Business:
Miami Avenue; Venice
:Avenue, about 200 feet north;
land, about another 200 feet
'north, Tampa Avenue.
When the weather is good,
,which is most of the time, and
ithe flotilla of small boats is
using the waterway, the
-bridges will open as much as
Isix times an hour.
i That, boaters argue, is
because of a maritime rule
'that vessels have the right of
'way because it is difficult for
captains to put their vessels in
(a holding pattern to wait for a
-scheduled bridge opening.
Even absent the intersec-
'tions, the bridge openings

when North Port made a
..claim to the properties.
After plenty of arguments,
the Dec. 7 deal basically has
:North Port getting 100 of the
lots for government use and
'the rest being sold off at mar-
ket value. The county's delin-
quent taxes would be paid off,
:and the remaining money
from selling 2,000 lots at an
estimated $30,000 each
would be split 55 percent
to North Port and 45 percent
to Sarasota County.
"We've had a vocal group
here in town sayingwe should
have gonten more out of it
because of the financial con-
siderations," North Port com-
missioner Fred Tower EI said.
"(Another meeting) isbasical-
ly a formality, but we could
have some changes. ... I
T would like to see a few areas
:improved."
Tower pointed out that
'North Port's lawsuit against
the county has been contin-
ued until June, so the city can
still fight the county out in
court to decide who actually
owns the lots.
k : Fellow city commissioner
Barbara Gross doesn't want to
Reopen negotiations. Her
; major goal is to simply get
[2,200 city lots paying property
|taxes to the city once again.
"The negotiations on Dec.
7 were done by both sides in
good faith, and unless there's
a legal technicality, that
should stand," Gross said.
"Whether it can be worked
out is another thing."
From the county's stand-
point, if any constituents
should be complaining, it is
on their end, not North Port's,
According to Mercier.
Sarasota County-agreed to
give North Port most of the
profits, 100 of the lots and
preserve 16 others for envi-
ronmental habitats.
The only e-mails to
Mercier from voters have
been of thanks that there is an
agreement arid the ugly fight
might be over.
Unless, North Port changes
its mind once again. Mercier


said this is nothing new,
.pointing to how annexation
plans keep getting agreed to
and then North Port refuses to
sign them.
"How many times can we
agree, go to the table and then
i1they don't sign," Mercier said.
"How many more times? ...
:We're getting the lower per-
centage, and yet I haven't
received one complaint from
voters."

patience and common cour-

Be patient
Goodson said traffic cita-
tions are up by 2 percent and
warnings are up 7 percent
over last year.
Police have special details
that work the intersections
where most of the congestion
occurs, according to
Goodson.
Some of the most common
violations are failing to yield
while making a left turn, run-
ning red lights (including
turning right on red without
stopping, and stopping in the
crosswalks) and blocking the
intersection.
"Frustration with traffic-
related problems reaches a
peak at this time every year,"
Goodson said, "with the con-


stant increase in develop-
ment and the seasonal influx
of visitors."
One caller said stacked
traffic at the Miami intersec-
tion means pedestrians can-
not cross 41, either.
"You got to stand there for
10 minutes because the cars
are bumper-to-bumper and
you can't walk between
them," he said.
Not surprisingly
Issuing traffic citations of
any kind during tourist sea-
son is not a high priority,
police officials have said,
although patrol officers won't
confirm it.
VPD officials have said in
the past that the department
does not like to issue citations
for any but the most grievous
traffic violations because city
fathers are concerned it will
affect the tourist trade.
For instance, save for occa-
sional blitzes, police rarely
issue tickets for blocked inter-


sections.
New figures on VPD traffic
citations will be published
soon.
How interesting is this?
According to figures pro-
vided by Sarasota County,
traffic gridlock cost the
United States $81.3 billion for
5.7 billion hours of lost time
last year. That does not
include $7.2 billion in fuel
wasted in gridlock.
The average American
spends 40 hours a year (or
one working week out of 50),
in traffic congestion.
The statistics also show
that big cities no longer have
the market on traffic conges-
tion.
The greatest increases in
delays show up in communi-
ties of less than 1 million peo-
ple.

Vikings get first win in final home game


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Finally.
After seven long weeks,
the Venice Vikings are win-
ners.
It happened Saturday
night at Powell-Davis
Stadium, as the Vikings
scored a 26-8 victory over
the PolkWar Eagles.
Both teams entered the
Southern States Football
League contest with records
of 0-7.
The game was close for
three quarters, but Venice
wore down Polk late in the
contest.
The War Eagles were still,
within striking distance at
13-8 as the game entered
,the fourth quarter.
The Vikings scored two
touchdowns in the final ses-
sion go home smiling.
A big insurance TD came
early in the fourth quarter.
Late in the third quarter,
Aaron Meininghaus recov-
ered a fumble to set up the
drive at the 48.
ATorryJohnsonto Shaun
Phelps pass put the ball on
the 25.
Brian Smith, a small but
explosive back, ripped off a
17-yard gain to the 8.
Chauncey Jones ran it in
from there to make it 20-8.
Polk had its next drive
stopped by a Edward
Gipson interception.
Venice drove for another
TD late in the game. A 30-
yard Johnson to Phelps pass
took the ball to the 11.
Phelps took it to the ,1;
where Andrew Jackson
bulled his way into the end
zone.
The Vikings led 13-8 at
the half.


Vikings receiver Torry Johnson is defended by a Polk War
Eagle player.


Venice scored on its very
first possession, thanks in
part to Polk strategy that
backfired.
The War Eagles tried an
onsides kick to open the
game. The ball only went
two yards, putting the Vikes
in business at the 32.
On a third and three call
from the 14, quarterback
Tim Howard threw a jump
ball to Torry Johnson in the
right corner of the end zone.
Johnson came down with
the ball for the touchdown.
J.D. Willing kicked the extra
point to make it 7-0.
Howard threw an inter-
ception 'later in the first
quarter and Johnson


replaced him at quarter-
back.
Early in the second quar-
ter, Johnson hooked up with
Dan Pinckney for an electri-
fying 65-yard catch and run
TD. The conversion run
failed, but Venice owned a
13-0 lead.
Polk got back into the,
game on one big play short-
ly afterwards. A Viking cor-
nerback fell down in one on
one coverage, allowing*
Kenny Elliott to hook up
with Buddy Buford for a 54-
yard TD. Elliott ran in the
conversion, and Polk was
suddenly back in the game.
But that would be Polk's
lone score of the night.


Koehler, Schmehl


propel Indians to


-fourth straight


Venice baseball wins in
the bottom of the 10th
on bases-loaded single
by Pete Hernandez.
BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It's hard to get better pitch-
ing than Venice High got
Friday night.
Starter Greg Koehler and
reliever Joel Schmehl com-
bined to throw 10 innings of
hitless ball at Lakewood
Ranch.
It took Pete Hernandez's
bases-loaded squirmer past a
drawn-in infield to plate Joel
Ehrhart with the winning run
in the bottom of the 10th
inning.
Venice has now won four
straight
games after
losing its first
three of the
season. More
importantly,
the Indians L
are 3-0 in the R
Class 5A
District 11
standings. Koehler
Lakewood
Ranch fell to 3-3 and 0-2.
It was definitely not a night
for hitters. While Koehler and
Schmehl were outstanding
for Venice, Ray Flynn and
Beau Highland also fired well
for Ranch.
Venice finished with seven
hits.
Koehler, a 6-4 senior right-
hander, was sharp in the
early going. He had his hook
working, striking fout eight
batters in four innings plus of
work. He suddenly lost his
control at the end of the
fourth and at the start of the
fifth, walking four out of five
batters.
"I was throwing more fast-.
balls," Koehler said. "I don't
know what happen. I just
couldn't throw strikes."
Up to then, his effort was
outstanding.
"Greg's been throwing well
for us," Venice head coach
Craig Faulkner said of his 1-0
starter. "Joel came in and did
a great job."
Schmehl, a side-winding
senior righty, was impressive
in his six inning stint. He
threw strikes and. his pitch
count was low.
"I've been working on
some stuff," Schmehl said. "I
was opening up and not fol-
16wing through. I felt good
tonight."
Schmehl came on in a
sticky situation -. bases
loaded and no one out in
the fifth. Venice owned a 2,0
lead, but it was about to dis-
appear.
Schmehl struck out Sean
Lawler. Matt Heller grounded


to short for the second out,
but a run came across to cut it
to 2-1.
Schmehl hit Anthony
Freed to reload the bases. Gus
Schlosser then sent a high
chop off the plate between
the mound and first base.
Schmehl couldn't come up
with the ball. Dillon Garback
and Nate Birczak came across
on the bobble, and Ranch
suddenly had a 3-2 lead with-
out the benefit of a hit.
Venice got it back in the
bottom of the fifth, as Trevor
Pelletier doubled to left-cen-
ter and "Scooter" Ehrhart
brought him around with a
two-bagger over the left field-
er's head.
It stayed 3-3 until the bot-
tom of the 10th.
The speedy Staszewski led
off with a triple down the
right field line. Ranch coach
Dave Moates called for inten-
tional walks to Ehrhart and
Jeremie Cook to load the
bases and create a force at
any bag situation.
It worked for one batter, as
Matt Kindell grounded to
third base. The ball came
home for the force on
Staszewski.
The next batter -
Hernandez -
got the job
done with a
ground single
just to the
right of sec-
ond baseman
Garback.
Venice
took a 1-0
lead in the Schmehl
seco nd
inning as Hernmandez singled
and scored on a single by
Koehler.
It went to 2-0 in the third.
Staszewski led offwith a sin-
gle and raced all the way to
third on a wild pickoff
attempt by Ranch starter
Flynn. Ehrhart picked up the
RBI on a grounder to second.
Garback came home with the
ball, but Staszewski beat the
tag.
Venice varsity will play two
home games this coming
week. Charlotte comes, to
town Tuesday are Port
Charlotte will be here Friday.
Both are 7 p.m. starts.
The Indians will try to
stretch their winning streak to
five and six. bndrew Tilka,
who was strong in his latest
outing against Manatee, will
get the starting nod against
the Tarpons.
The Venice junior varsity
plays Monday at Manatee.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 9A


NUS DAY MARCH 13 2005


There's something about a pick-up man


Jeff Firestine and his No. 93 Chevy will be charg-
ing for the checkered flag in Sunday's fastruck 50-
lapper at Charlotte County Speedway.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It looked like Jeff Firestine
would lose his ride when
father Frank sold the family's
two race trucks.
"He sold them and got into
street rods," said Firestine, the
fiery Fastruck series driver
out of Venice.
Would Firestine have to go
back to Street Stocks or dive
head first into Figure 8 racing?
Well, not exactly. As it turn-
ed out, the guy that Frank
Firestine sold the Chevy Sil-
verados to Ron Reber -
would tap Jeff as the lead dri-
ver for his new team. The sec-


ond truck will be piloted by
Clint Snyder.
The two trucks will be in
action Sunday afternoon at
Charlotte County Speedway
as the Fastrucks will go 50
laps.
It will be the second race of
the 2005 season for Fastrucks.
Firestine, who hails from
Venice, finished eighth in the
No. 93 truck in the season
opener at Auburndale. Sny-
der, another Venetian, will be
making his team debut Sun-
day in the 24 truck.
"We have the best looking
trucks around," said Firestine
of the detail job done by Her-
bie Cope out of St. Petersburg.


Firestine's is black with or-
ange, white and gold trim.
Snyder's is black with red
flames.
Firestine has been. racing
for 12 years now. He started in
Road Warrior and has driven
in everything up to a Late Mo-
del.
He's now happy to be dri-
ving for Reber, who hails from
North Port.
"He owns Ron's Racing
Collectibles," Firestine said.
"He has a shop in the Red
Barn Flea Market in Braden-
ton."
Snyder has also been aro-
und the block a few times. He
is a veteran of Road Warrior
wars.
Other team sponsors in-
clude Signature Auto Sales,
Jon's Photos and Bodies En-
gines.


Last Saturday's Fastruck
season opener was won by
George Gorham in the 10
truck. Sam Watts was second
in the 60 truck owned by Port
Charlotte's Kevin Williams.
Gary Foxworth was third in
the 25 truck. A total of 25
trucks took the green. Even
more may show up to race in
Punta Gorda Sunday. Gates
open at noon and racing
begins at 2 p.m.
The Fastkids portion of
Fastrucks will also race. They
will race 25 laps. The winner
of the season lid-lifter at Au-
burndale was 15-year-old
David Wilson of Sarasota.
The most interesting race
of the day could be the Star
Wars Sprint Challenge. This
30-lap race will feature the
non-winged Sprints of Fast-
sprint going up against the

Sprints.
The non-winged cars have
more horsepower but the
winged cars have better han-


dling through the corners.
"The wings are so much
faster," said Firestine, who
has been known to dabble in
sprint car racing himself.

Just a simple Nassau with

Do yourself a favor and get
acquainted with the lingo.
There are many different
types of wagering to be done
on the links, and the man
who doesn't understand his
bets is going to get creamed.
Let's start with the Nassau.
A Nassau is a match play or
hole-to-hole bet. It's usually a
$2 bet three different ways.
They are front nine, back nine
and overall.
Let's say for argument's
sake, you win the front nine
and your opponent wins the
back nine. You beat him two
up on the front and lose the

back three down. That means
you won one bet and lost two
because the third prong of the
bet is the total. Your total loss
is $2.
The two down automatic is
a wager in which you are
playing a Nassau. However,
every time you go two down,
a new bet is on the table. This
bet is called a press. In other
words, if you were playing a
two down auto and lost every
hole, you would be down 9-7-
5-3-1, or five bets.
Let's say you win the first
two holes and then go in the
tank. It happens a lot. Now,
you were two up after, two
and your opponent gets a
press. The score of the match
is two and even with a press
or two and even.


Classifieds work


You lose the third hole and
are now 1-1 (that's 2-0 minus
one). It can get confusing
from there. You had better
know your way around, or
you could end up eating
bologna and cheese and try-
ing to explain to your wife
how you lost the grocery
money.
I would like to' make this
point very clearly. If you do
not understand your wagers,


do not make them.
Start off simple and learn
from there.
There's always some chat-
ter about how somebody just
got killed playing so and so. It
happens. Just like in Las
Vegas. When you make a bet,
you take a chance and some-
times are going to be the
loser.
But let me tell you there is
nothing better than wallpa-


pering a room with your pal's
cash.
We will discuss this topic
further in the future, getting
into some eccentric bets like
my. favorite, the one down
autO. Definitely not for the
weak of heart or shallow of
pocket.
See ya!

Controversial art displays
Public art displays like the
recent Holocaust exhibit or
even Pigs 'in Paradise open
the city up to potential legal
risks, according to a memo
from City Manager Marty
Black to city council mem-
bers.
Black cites a February arti-
cle inside the American City
and County magazine that
details methods to select
public displays and reduce
liability. Some people could
find the Holocaust exhibit
disturbing, while Pigs in
Paradise has generated
debate about whether you
"love them" or "hate them,"
Black wrote.
In the article, three tips
offered by a city attorney are:
Have the local arts agency
enforce written eligibility cri-
teria that do more than just
ban "controversial" or "offen-
sive" artwork. Wording should
be specific on what the indi-
vidual community standards
of decency are and be
enforced consistently.
Ignore the critics because
those complaints will always
be there. Criticisms of art dis-
plays rarely provide legal rea-
sons in a court case for
removing artwork.
Obtain waivers of "moral
rights" from artists to protect
the city from lawsuit if the art-
work has to be altered or
removed in the future.

Public art displays even one of the Pigs In Paradise pictured
above open the city up to legal risks, according to a memo
by City Manager Marty Black


The city manager's office
requested city council
approve a Public Art Council,
which reports to Black, as a
means to establish standards
of decency and offer recom-
mendations for art displays.
Venice has no such governing
board, and council members
delayed issuing an opinion.
In 1998, city council
approved a one-year morato-
rium on wall murals while the
Architectural Review Board
considered acceptable stan-
dards for historic and theme
districts.
"Perhaps the time has
come for consideration of
strategies that provides a
legally defensible basis for the
types of art displayed in the
city," Black wrote.

Sharky's plans are in
Pier Group Inc. has finally
submitted renovation plans to
the city manager's office,
which means the proposal
could be coming beforeVenice
City Council members. An
agenda date has not been set.
The beachfront restaurant
is on airport land, owned by
the city, and it pays about
$250,000 a year in rent that


goes toward Venice parks and
airport operations. Any
changes or expansion must be
approved by city council.
Here are the three proposed
improvements:
Replacement of hurri-

the previous canvas. Sharky's
has already installed most of
these huts without asking for.

guilty last November of build-
ing code violations.
Request for a temporary
bait shop while restaurant
waits for city construction of
the permanent one.
Install permanent enclo-
sure around an existing out-
door vending machine.
All of the proposed
improvements are within the
restaurant's boundaries,
according to the city manager's
report. City staff determined
previous expansion requests
crossed property lines.

Tougher requirements for substitutes


Most of the changes are just to bring the district
in line with state law, but a few go farther.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It just became a bit more
difficult to get a job substitute.
teaching in Sarasota County
public schools.
Substitutes will have to
show recent teaching experi-
ence and recent references
and undergo additional train-
ing to get a job under a new
policy adopted by Sarasota
County School Board. The
policy was passed largely to
comply with new state man-
dates, said school officials..
I A-new state law requires
the completion of an initial
orientation program address-
ing school safety and security
procedures, educational lia-
bility law, professional
responsibilities and ethics.
But some changes go


beyond state law.
To get ajob, substitutes will
now have to submit docu-
mentation verifying they
have taught in a public or pri-
vate school within the last five
years, or go through the dis-
trict's substitute endorsement
program, which provides
additional training in class-
room management skills and
instructional strategies.
Board members also
agreed by voice vote to add a
requirement calling for recent
references.
"We needed to change lan-
guage requiring 'current' ref-
erences. References should
be defined as originating
within the last five years," said
school board member Carol
Todd .
Todd voiced concern over
applicants who may have


taught 10 years ago or longer
but have no recent refer-
ences. Teaching has signifi-
cantly changed since then,
she said.
"My concern has to do
with current and relevant ref-
erences," Todd said. "We're
trying to ensure we have the
best qualified substitutes in
the classroom."
The payoff
Sarasota County School
District is one of the few in
Florida that require substitute
teachers to hold a bachelor's
degree; state law requires at
least a high school diploma.
An added incentive for
prospective subs who go
through the district's substi-
tute endorsement program is
a significant pay increase,
from $12.86 per hour to
$15.01 per hour, say district
officials.
Letters were recently sent


"We're trying to
ensure we have the
best qualified
substitutes in the
classroom."


(
schoolboar

rd member


to a pool of substitutes with-
out an endorsement encour-
aging participation in the
program. Scheduled sessions
in April are full, say school
officials. Future endorsement
sessions are scheduled for
July 5, 12 and 19.
Also new for substitutes:
drug-screening, in addition to
required medical exams.

SLA seeks


dismissal


of lawsuit

The Student Leadership
Academy claims ex-
principal Nancy
Sanders' contract was
never legally approved.
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It's in the hands of the legal
eagles now.
Attorneys for the Student
Leadership Atademrny, a char-
ter school in Venice, filed a
motion March 2 to dismiss
the lawsuit filed against it by
founding principal Nancy
Sanders, who left the school
in November, just three
months after it opened.
The charter school's gov-
erning board replaced
Sanders, who responded in
January by suing SLA for
breach of contract.
The motion for dismissal is
based partly on technical
grounds, and partly on non-
performance of services.
In her motion to dismiss,
school attorney Lorraine
Hultman is arguing the for-
mer principal's contract isn't
valid because it wasn't prop-
erly voted upon by the gov-
erning board as required by
law.
There is no official record
the contract was approved by
the SLA board, states the
motion.
"The person who signed
the contract didn't have the
authority to sign on behalf of
the board," Hultman said.
On the flip side, even if
there was a valid contract, the
motion seeks dismissal
because the contract was
breached by Sanders.
The contract required
Sanders to perform duties
commencing May 1, although
her work schedule com-
menced in August, and she
ceased performing her duties
effective Sept. 1, according to
the motion.
The next step is for a judge
to set a hearing date.
Attorneys for Sanders
declined to comment on
specifics of the case.

judging, the homes were
divided into three price
divisions and honored in five
categories (Superior Home,
Best Bath, Best Kitchen, Best
Outdoor Living and Best
Livability).
"The winners were chosen
by a group of judges from
area businesses and organiza-
tions. Each home was rated
for a variety of categories on a
scale. Awards were based on a
total of points awarded. That
is why we ended up with two
ties!" CBCA Executive Officer
Shannon Chesser said.
"The 'Caribbean' by Britan-
nia Construction was our
Showcase Home this year.
They obtained that status via
at auction. As the auction
winner, Britannia won the


cover of the magazine, and
the right to be the host of the
first launch party. More than
1,700 Realtors and industry
leaders were invited and
$1,000 was raised for Habitat
for Humanity.
"The Parade of Homes
guide book will be available

SUNDAY
March 13, 2005


M medicaid is a $14 billion giant in the
state of Florida. Gov. Jeb Bush wants
the cost reduced.
His brother, President Bush, made a simi-
lar plea for correcting Social Security and
Medicaid's big brother, Medicare.
But, while it might seem as if the two ideas
were hatched around the dinner table at a
family gathering, the discussions may have
ended there, because the two brothers have
attacked their two issues in separate ways.
President Bush got citizens and legislators'
attention by suggesting part of employees'
contributions to Social Security be diverted
into private investment funds. That idea seems
to have floundered, but the big picture of
cleaning up Social Security seems to have
taken on legs of its own. President Bush should
be credited for sparking the conversations.


Specific proposals have crystallized, such
as expanding the $90,000 limit on salaries
from which Social Security funding is taken
and adding employees from whom Social
Security deductions could be taken, such as
members of Congress.
There have been no such initiatives from
Gov. Bush on Medicaid. He tossed the idea on
the table and let it lie there, except for sug-
gesting that it be transformed into a private
managed-care program.
Medicaid is a federal-state program for
those unable to afford health care. The state
portion is 41 percent of the total.
Most nursing homes would not be able to
function without Medicaid injections that
account for two-thirds of their total income.
But, is money being spent for the elderly and
the indigent that is not necessary for their


health and well-being?
Certainly.
Rep. Paige Kreegel, R.-Punta Gorda, a
medical doctor, has already offered a'plan
that would eliminate such "lifestyle" drugs as
Viagra and Levitra from Medicaid's prescrip-
tion list. The state currently pays $2.5 billion
for prescription drugs. Kreegel's proposal
would cut that nearly in half. His plan is cer-
tainly one that merits further investigation
and thought.
Without a specific plan from the governor,
there will be other bits and pieces that may
come to fruition in a major overhaul of the
state's Medicaid program.
However, the legislative session that began
Tuesday is limited to 60 days concluding
on May 6. It is on that date that the state's
budget is usually approved.


Legislators have several other items on'
their plates.
Growth management, which outlines how
we will handle the heavy influx of new resi-
dents, hasn't been changed in 20 years. As our
population grows, we need to look at how we
are going to provide water, schools and roads
for our new citizens.
Gov. Bush wants the legislators to tone
down the class-size amendment that the
electorate approved three years ago.
We hope that legislators also take a long
look at how hurricane victims are reimbursed
by their insurance companies.
While there will certainly be debates on
how to fix Medicaid, it may take longer than
60 days to get an acceptable plan especial-
ly if the governor leaves it up to lawmakers to
come up with one.


Change priorities


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

As we have learned in the
last several weeks, transporta-
tion problems have elevated
to levels never seen before.
Many days each week we
have traffic brought to a
standstill by accidents.
Seemingly every day -75 traf-
fic is diverted through., our,
town. Our roads aie at or near
capacity in seasonand just
one accident greatly disrupts
the traffic pattern and flow.
After we have been sitting
in Long Island Expressway-
type conditions for quite
some time, there are many
things that seem obvious. All
the millions we spent in the
last five years have helped if
there are no problems, but
don't help if there are any dis-
ruptions.
We obviously have to take
action on those problems.
Widening 1-75 Would help
some; likely we would have
fewer accidents and more
room to divert traffic. But/the
other solutions are ones that
have been on the back burner
of the MPO and county, likely
because they have a lot of hot
spots in other parts of the
county
Finishing 1 mile of Border
Road would help, as would
the extension of Jacaranda.
Boulevard to Laurel Road.
That project'is partially held
up because county planners
have not selected a path for
the extension, unveiling three
options at the joint city coun-
cil-county commissioner
meeting in February.
Neither council members
or commissioners reached a
consensus on which path
they preferred, which needs
to happen for the project to
move forward.
Those two moves would
help and need to happen
sooner rather than later.
Connecting Honore and
Pinebrook would, too.
On top of our priority list is
the widening of the bypass.
My idea for that is to com-
plete the Venice Avenue inter-
change now to help flow there
while they are off buying the
rest of the right of way. These
things need to have the most
attention. Certainly the
chamber will have the bypass
on its list when it journeys to
Tallahassee.
Another thing that just
doesn't seem right is that when
the north bridge signals it is
going to open, the traffic light
at Tampa turns red. The pur-
pose of this is to keep people
from blocking all the intersec-
tions, which makes sense.


Unfortunately, it also keeps
cars from stacking in front of
the gates on the bridge, which
would lessen the congestion.
The timing of turning the
Tampa light to red should be
looked at.
No matter what we do, just
think about what the traffic is
going to be like in 10 years.
Think how much we have
spent and then think of the
changes I mentioned above
and it is obvious that we are
just about out of magic tricks
to solve our traffic night-
mares.
As one caller said, our lead-
ers need to look very hard at
concurrency because it is
quite clear that we are not
going to meet those stan-
dards much longer if we
are now. As our administra-
tors, commissioners and
council members continue to
allow more and more density
to help improve their bud-
gets, we will have no chance
of meeting concurrency and
our roadways will become
impassable.
'If we make more excep-
tions so we can fit just one
more story, we will add just a
little more to the density and
the problem. As has become
evident this year, it is not the
lack of water that will slow our
growth, it is the inability to get
around.
If it makes you feel any bet-
ter, March is the worst traffic
month every year.
Montana is looking better
all the time.
******

By's Crack: It is easy to
tell the real hypochondri-
acs. They're the ones who
tune into ER and then go
wash their hands.

In our business the highest
award you can earn is the
Pulitzer Prize. Through 'the
grapevine. we have learned
that our sister paper, The
Charlotte Sun, is one of three
finalists in the breaking news
category for its work on the
hurricanes. The other two are
the Fort Lauderdale Sun
Sentinel and the Newark Star
Ledger.
Almost all of the candi-
dates for these awards are
from the biggest newspapers
in the country such as the
New York Times, Wall Street
Journal and the Washington
Post. It is a great honor to just
become a finalist for this
prestigious award..
This is the scuttlebutt, as a
committee makes recom-
mendations to a board that
actually makes the final call in
April. Needless to say, we are
excited and anxious to hear.
We also are a finalist for
another special award, the
Scripps Foundation Award for
community service, for the
good work done to help our
communities after the hurri-
cane.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


She s the people's representative


Editor:
I personally do not like the idea of getting a ticket in the mail
given to me by a camera that may or may npt be right. At first
blush, it looks like just another wayfor government to get more
money.
However, as the "people's representative in Tallahassee," I
sent out a survey to 15,000 homes questioning voters on a vari-
ety of subjects, with the cameras being one of them. The survey
shows that people support this, idea by a margin of 3-1.
Therefore, should the bill be brought up I would vote for it.
Another hot topic is the bill I am doing at the request of the
Sarasota County School Board. This bill would allow a school
millage referendum, if passed, to be extended for a greater
period of time.
If the bill passes, the school board would decide how the
ballot language would read. The school board would decide if
the referendum should be for four years, five years, or any-
where up to 10 years.
The school board also would decide if they will continue the
tax at the current one mill or would reduce the tax to one-half
or three-fourths of a mill. Then the people will vote.
The bill I am sponsoring simply gives the school system
more flexibility, with the voters as the final checks and bal-
ances.
As we start the session, I intend to furnish people with as
many hard facts as I can so that they can make informed deci-
sions when they are faced with upcoming ballot initiatives.
The most important point I wish to make is that the people
really do' have the power to make their own government per-
form the way it should if they participate.

Rep. Nancy Detert
Venice


President's attention
should focus at home
Editor: !
So, OK, gas prices keep
going up. Although everyone
complains about them, we all
line up like sheep and pay the
price.
I don't see much that we
can do.
If we boycott the gas sta-
tions, we don't get to work,


the grocery store or curb our
leisure-time habits. Let's face
it. Without a decent mass-
transportation system, Ame-
rican living is centered
around the automobile.
The media dutifully report
that oil companies are mak-
ing billions of dollars more in
profits than in previous years.
Their profits are so excessive
that they don't even know


how to spend enough money
on exploration for new oil.
My belief is that the oil
companies are exploiting the
current situation in Iraq. So
have the media called for a
federal investigation? Has
President Bush even men-
tioned or hinted at price regu-
lation? My recollection is that
a few years ago when gas
prices went up, then
President Clinton stepped in
and at least threatened to put
price caps in place.
Naturally, I wouldn't expect
Bush to do anything since he
is from an oil state, has
friends in oil and the Bush
family has a great deal invest-
ed in the oil industry.
Bush shouldn't be running
around the world telling other
countries how to live, spend-
ing our tax dollars and wast-
ing American lives. He should
be more concerned with
domestic issues like the price
gouging practiced by oil com-
panies.
Am I the only one that feels,
this way?
Andrew Torok
Venice,
Not all seniors
are driving slowly
Editor:
Regarding the senior citi-
zen that wrote in about
patience with older drivers: I
am glad that this senior is a
courteous driver.
But there are those that are
senior citizens that are not
courteous at all.


- I cannot tell you how
many times an older driver
has laid on their car horn the
second the light turns green,
not bven giving the driver a
chance to get their foot off
the brake so they can pro-
ceed.
I have had many people,
senior citizens included, that
get impatient when I am dri-
ving the speed limit, maybe
even 5 miles an hour faster
than the limit, and have had
them honk or speed around
me.
I could tell you about the
senior citizen that apparently
does not know when the
school zone begins and ends
and continually honked at
me while I was driving the
appropriate speed during
school hours in the school
zone.
When he got the chance,
the man peeled out and sped
around me, honking the
whole time he passed. I hap-
pily tolerate the driver that is
driving safely and carefully.
I It is always better to be
safe than sorry. I am quickly
advancing on the age that I
myself will be called a senior
citizen and I agree fully that
we all should slow down and
smell the orange blossoms
and the roses.
To the senior who wrote
the letter to the editor, I give
you a big smile and a wave.
And thank you for being a
courteous driver.

OUR VIEW




Medicaid overhaul may take time


-- # =2t -so,







14A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN SUNDAY, MARCH 13,2005


THE WORD ON THE STREET


Q: Should there be a county
jail in the Venice area?

JerryTortoretti (Venice): I go
downtown at 10 o'clock in
the evening and everything is
locked up. Most people in the
area are like myself- retired.
How bad do they really need
it?


Benita Masterson (Venice): I
think we need a lot of things
in the Venice area more than
a prison. We need things to
keep people from going to
jail ... and programs that
teach people to help them-
selves and to help others.


AshleyTackell (Venice): I
think it's a good idea. It sends
a message to troublemakers
in the area. They could build
another county jail on the
other side of 1-75 where they
have all that empty land.


Sheldon Toepfer (Venice): I
don't think they need one in
South County. We can share
with Sarasota or Charlotte. It
may be that North Port may
need one of its own if they
keep growing.


Tom Kurzydlowski (Venice):
I don't think we need another
jail because we just built a
new one in Sarasota not too
long ago. If we couldn't fit
everyone, then maybe I'd say
okay. -


Justin Bent (Osprey) : I'm
against the idea of jails. I
think it's totally immoral to
lock someone up. Especially
here in the Venice area. Most
people are pretty kind here.

Got a question you'd like us
to ask? Send it to The Word on
the Street, 200 E. Venice Ave.,

town. There is always fun
music, good shopping and
even some tasty stuff to eat.

It was so exciting watching
the girls basketball team
almost win. the state tourna-
ment. The team really put on a
valiant fight in fact was
ahead much of the game
against a team that had an All-
American player and only one
loss all year.
Theywill certainlybe one of
the teams in the running for
the Big Chief Trophy that we
award each year to the high
school team that excelled the
best during the year.

Today's Ism: (here is anoth-
er one from the column
Connie Lepar sent me from a
paper in Berlin, Wis., by Jim
Wolff, who was passing on
excuses parents have written
for their kids):
Please excuse Mary for being
absent yesterday. She was in
bed with gramps.

Today you should find a
very special item in the paper
- the Health and Human
Services Community Re-
source Guide, a joint project
of the Gondolier Sun, the
County Health Department,
the Community Health
Improvement Project and the
LOVN CHAT.
This health resource guide
has all agencies and others
that assist with health chal-
lenges. This is a great resource
guide. Thanks especially to
Judy Egan and Maggie
Kennedy for their countless
hours of research and organi-
zation.

Fifty-two years ago this
weekend local residents
kicked off a fund drive for a
childreids wing at Venice


Memorial Hospital. Now it is
Venice Regional Medical
Center. I wonder how we are
doing getting a children's
wing?

One of the funniest things I
have heard in a while hap-
pened to an employee of ours,
though it was not funny to her.
She was. arrested for speeding
on Colonia Lane by a sheriff's
deputy on a horse. She saw the
horses ahead but didn't realize
one of them was toting a radar
gun. There is a moral in that
story somewhere.

A project we have enjoyed
helping sponsor has been the
Pigs in Paradise. We are wind-
ing down toward the end: The
Pigs are now up for auction.
You can go on the Web site
for the pigs, venicepigsinpar-
adise.com, and view the pigs


and register your bids. The live
auction will be April 30 at the
Venice Yacht Club. Tickets are
on sale now at the Venice Art
Center.
The minimum bid on a pig
is $500.

Speaking of pigs, the
Sarasota County Fair opens
March 18 up at the fair-
grounds on Fruitville Road.
You may be surprised to
know that kids entered more
than 200 pigs to be judged at
the fair. Not all met the
requirements, but it shows we
have a strong 4-H in our com-
munities.

Bumper sticker: Lottery -
a tax on people who are bad at
math.

Sarasota, Manatee funeral consumer group busts myths and saves money -


BYGERALDA.ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Myths about funerals and
other end-of-life arrange-
ments persist, adding to the
grief of those who have to pay
the bills, despite' the institu-
tion of rules designed to pro-
tect consumers in effect for
more than 20 years.
The rules were created by


the Federal Trade Commis-
sion. Individuals have been
trying to make them more
effective.
One such enterprise is the
Funeral Consumers Alliance
of Sarasota-Manatee Inc. A
voluntary nonprofit organi-
zation with more than 3,000
members in Venice, Sarasota
and Manatee, it has been try-
ing for 32 years to alert con-


sumers on ways they can
avoid the high costs histori-
cally associated with funeral
arrangements.
The task has been made
difficult by the existence of
these myths, many of which
have been perpetrated by the
funeral industry.
Among the myths:
*You need to order a casket to
delay the natural decomposi-


tion of human remains. The
.truth is that decomposition
starts in 24 hours with or
without a casket.
* Embalming is required by
law. Not so, according to the
Alliance.
* Coffin vaults are required by
law. No such law exists in any
of the 50 states. Many ceme-
teries do, however, insist on
vaults.


* Cremated remains must be
placed in an urn and interred
in a cemetery. The Alliance
says it isn't necessary. Ashes
can be kept in the cardboard
or plastic box provided by the
crematory. 'Or they can be
scattered in your yard.

ing Funeral Home in Venice

CONSUMER trco, I 7A

has assisted mourners who
scattered a loved one's ashes
on a golf course, in one case,
and in the Intracoastal
Waterway, in another.
Funeral costs
,Carol Koehler of Osprey,
the newly elected president of
the Alliance, reports that a
"traditional" funeral costs an
average of $6,000 nationwide.
But, she added, "$12,000 for a
funeral is not unheard of."
She and her fellow mem-
bers work with Ewing and two
other funeral homes in the
area to keep the costs of end-
of-life arrangements miana-
geable.
Much has been changed in
such arrangements locally in
the past 30 years, according to
Kalbfleisch. Half of them were
cremations in 1975. Today.
cremations account for 75
percent, and for Alliance
members, it's 98 percent, he
said.
That's a much higher per-
centage than in the rest of.
Florida and up north.

Sarota County


Busy seasonal traffic drives

temporary changes to SCAT Route 6
In an ongoing effort to improve efficiency and reduce delays in area
bus service, Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) has implemented
minor changes to Route 6 service to Ed Smith Stadium, the Gulf
Gate neighborhood, Sarasota Pavilion (formerly Gulf Gate Mall), and
Westfield Shoppingtown Sarasota (formerly Sarasota Square Mall).
As of Feb. 28, service through the Gulf Gate neighborhood is one
way, Southbound service from the Downtown Transfer Station to
Westfield Shoppingtown Is running straight down Beneva Road.
Buses traveling northbound back to the transfer station are running
west on Gulf Gate' Drive to Sarasota Pavilion via Gateway Avenue;
then from Sarasota Pavilion to Markridge Road via Gulf Gate Drive;
north on Lockwood Ridge Road; east on Clark Road; then Beneva
back to downtown.
Route 6 is one of the heaviest traveled routes from downtown
Sarasota for trips throughout the county, but seasonal traffic
increases have created regular delays of up to 30 minutes during
peak afternoon hours. The bus occasionally runs up to 10 minutes to
20 minutes behind during off-peak hours, especially in the morning
when school safety zones are operating on Lockwood Ridge and on
Tuttle Avenue.
Jim Harriott, Sarasota County's general manager of mobility, says
changes to the route will allow it to meet timely connections into
downtown Sarasota. Notices alerting SCAT users to the change were
posted on buses, at bus stops, and at transfer locations.
Harriott emphasizes that route is temporary through, the tourist and
baseball season. '"This minor adjustment is needed to provide
adequate service," he said. "A more permanent solution will be
identified over the coming months as SCAT evaluates future bus
operations." Harriott and other county officials are scheduled to meet
with the Gulf Gate Neighborhood Association on March 15 to discuss
a long-term solution.

Miles and

miles of

heart

Natalie Gaudreau, Marisa
Callaghan, Jamie Lane, Kail-
ey. Dettmann, Samantha
Worthington, Dana Nostin,
Maria Cooke, Sam
Sharpe/King, Lindsay Rieg-
secker, Jessica Enander,
Vickie Mitchell, Diana Meh-
serle, LisaHough and Andrea
Krankoski showed everyone
at the Lakeland Center what it
means to play with heart.
Our Lady Indians basket-
ball team made us proud.
"They are the same way in
the classroom," Venice High
teacher Barbara Farrar said
during the game. "They al-
ways give their all."
As is the hallmark of Venice
sports fans, they filled most of
the Lakeland Center. Even
former commissioner Robert
Anderson was on hand to
cheer for the girls.
On the bus
Traveling to Lakeland was
Jim Richardson. Girls on the
basketball team affectionately
refer to him as "Mr. R." This
nice man found a way to help
give the team energy by pro-
viding a huge bag of candy for
the girls before each game. He
also brought about 100 "Go
Lady Indians" signs for us to
wave.
Snowbirds Dick and Pat
Bull are great basketball fans
from Trumbull, Conn. While
spending time in Venice they
decided to cheer for the In-
dians and traveled to the
games on the special fans bus.
Also on the bus were Andy
and Ellie Prischak from Erie,
Pa. These snowbird grandpar-
ents had a granddaughter,
Stephane at Villa Maria.
Academy in Erie in the final 4.
Since they couldn't cheer for
her there, they cheered for her
via the Venice Lady Indians.
I hope they let us know
how Stephane's team did.
Bravo Grady and Karen
Hough for arranging for the
fan bus. Also, thanks for your
terrific daughter, Lisa.
Dale Hanson, bus driver
for All Around Charters gets
my vote for bus driver of the
year. The trip from Lakeland
on Wednesday was a night-
mare with ramps and lanes
closed. Dale calmly found a
safe way home and patiently
waited through all the traffic.
Celebrity wives in town
The folks at the Plantation
know how to entertain. Dur-
ing the recent Celebrity Class-
ic, they wined and dined a
group of celebrity wives that
included Mary Brown, wife of
Paul Brown for whom the
Cleveland Browns are named
and Beverly Graham, wife of
former Cleveland Browns
great quarterback the late Ot-
to Graham.
They took the ladies on a
tour of downtown Venice
where they visited shops and
got to see paradise. They also
enjoyed our pigs.
From the bleachers
Ray Sinibaldi is back an-
nouncing games for the Ven-
ice Indians. Kim Kindell and
the other moms and dads
invite you to the ballpark for
delicious belly-buster hot
dogs, hamburgers and great
Italian sausage with green
peppers and onions. While
there, you'll also enjoy some
good Venice Indians baseball.

bow following the Encore part of the Suncoast concert.




Suncoast Chorale swings





toward end of season


BY JAN FINDLEY
CORRESPONDENT


The fabulous Suncoast
Chorale's February concert
/was a hot, hot red, white and
'blue show. Considered the
group's late spring show, it
was the best collection of
foot-tapping music we've had
in the area in months. ..
Hotcha!
The title of the Chorale's
show was "The Glory of
Love!" and it contained songs
of love or songs that facilitat-
ed love and lovers. The songs
were by American composers
and lyricists Johnny Mer-
cer, Harold Arlen, Irving
Berlin, Billy Strayhorn, Jer-
ome Kern, Duke Ellington,
Louie Prima. It was hot stuff,
all right, and the audience
loved it.
Obviously the singers did,
too; they communicated that
love to the audience. It was a
love fest from beginning to
end.
In recent seasons, the Sun-
coast Chorale has aimed, in-
creasingly, for the high end of
pop music, the kind that most
Americans like best. You
might call it "American Class-
ic," rhythmic and, with a solid
beat you don't need a master's
degree to find it.
Under the direction of


Artistic Director and Con-
ductor Jeff Jordan, the Chor-
ale has found its groove.
Jordan and the Chorale are
two-thirds of the way through
their first season .together. It
seems to have been a happy
pairing.
Jordan is the fourth direc-
tor of the chorale in as many
Years. The most recent
change occurred because last
year's director, Deborah Ber-
ioli, had someplace else to go.
This year the popular per-
former/director is a principal
singer in the San Jose, Calif.,
Opera Company.
After earning music de-
grees from Florida State Uni-
versity and the University of
Texas at Austin, Jordan also
studied at Rutgers University
and Westminster Choir Col-
lege in New Jersey. His teach-
ers have included Sean Dieb-
ler, Kent Kennan, Leonidas
Lipo%\etsky. Dorothy Payne
and Robert Shaw.
Jordan served for several
years as head of music de-
partments at community col-
leges in Western Kentucky
and Northwest Florida. He is
director of music and the arts
at First Presbyterian Church
of Port Charlotte, and is Praise
Team Leader for Burnt Store
Presbyterian Church in Punta
Gorda.


Bonnie Kaiser, alto, performed a solo during "I Love a Piano."


The director is an up-front
and groovy guy himself he
even enjoys himself at re-
hearsals, a kind of one-man
portable generator. Anyone
who belongs to a group that
has weekly rehearsals will
know what I mean they are
usually monotonous and
moderately boring. Perform-
ing is the fun part. Under
Jordanr, rehearsing is a series
of energizing moments., I
enjoy the Chorale's rehearsals
almost as much as their per-
formances.
Other developments also
indicate new-found "go, go"
spirit within the group, which
is now in its 27th season. The
Chorale now has almost as
many men singers as it does
women. That momentous
news makes for a better bal-
ance of sound and energy.
And, this year, for the first
time that I recollect, singers
from the Chorale were singled
out to perform solo parts
within various songs.
Spier Collins and 'Bonnie
Kaiser performed wonderful-
ly in their respective solo bits
at the February concert.
Shirley Spiers, who plays
piano accompaniment for the
Chorale, is a solid right arm to
Jordan's directing, both at per-
formances and at rehearsal.
She's a gem.
In addition to entertaining
members of the greater
Venice and Englewood com-
munities, the Chorale offers
scholarships to graduating
seniors from Venice and
Lemon Bay high schools.
Applicants must have at least
a 2.5 grade point average.
Application forms may be
secured from Harriet Paske at
485-0633. Completed appli-
cations must be in by April 16.
The final concert of the
Suncoast Chorale's 2005 sea-
son will be presented at 3 p.m.
on April 3 at the Englewood
United Methodist Church,
700 E. Dearborn St., in Engle-
wood and at 7:30 p.m. in
Venice, at the Church of the
Nazarene, 1535 E. Venice Ave.
The concert focus will be on
music appropriate to the
Easter season.
Individual tickets. are $15
per person.
Tickets can be purchased
at the Red Pelican in Engle-
wood, the Paper Pad on West
Venice Avenue inVenice, from
any member of the Suncoast
Chorale or by calling 493-
1677.


Spier Collins, baritone, soloed during the singing of "In the
Wee Small Hours."

ADVERTISEMENT
WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A |
Certified Audiologist
Q. -Every time I open the
paper I see advertisements
for digital hearing aids at
very low prices. When I
asked my Audiologist about
this, she said those digital
hearing aids to not have
computers in them. Help,
I'm confused.
A. Confusing you is exactly
what those advertisements
hope to do. "Real" digital
hearing aids contain
sophisticated computers which
process sound moment to
moment. These tiny computers
change the amplification in
reaction tb changes in the
environment of the listener.'
They are able to perform
hundreds of computations per
second and provide clear, high
fidelity sound to the listener at
all times. It is these types of
instruments people think of
when they hear the term
"digital hearing aid." Some
manufacturers, however, have
chosen to remove the
computers from their hearing
aids while still keeping the
"digital" label. These
instruments do not do any
moment-to-moment signal
processing and, cannot be
reprogrammed in the future.
Because these instruments do
not contain computers, their
performance is limited and
their prices are low. The
advertisers you mentioned are
hoping you notice the low price
and won't notice the difference
between "their" digital hearing
aids and "real" ones. In order
to learn more about the benefits
of various hearing aid
technologies and which ones
would work best for you, call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327,

Adopt a manatee for Easter


STAFF REPORT


Move over, chicks and
bunnies! This year, put a
manatee in your Easter bas-
ket. Adopting a manatee is a
great way to introduce chil-
dren to the environment, and
a real "hands-off" way to get
to know animals. Proceeds
from Save the Manatee Club's
Adopt-A-Manatee program
go toward conservation pro-
grams to protect endangered
manatees and their habitat.
Adopt a manatee for $25
and you'll receive a photo of
your manatee, the manatee's
biography, an adoption cer-
tificate, a membership hand-
book with more information
on manatees and four news-
letters throughout the year
with updated reports on your
adoptee.
If you join at the $35 level
of membership or more, you
can get a free plush manatee
toy, coloring book, and "man-
atee"-colored crayon.

At Sarasota Memorial, we're much more than a hospital. We're a community-owned hospital. So for
more.than 75 years, we've been making decisions that put the community's needs first, not our own.
Unlike other area hospitals, we don't cut programs people need simply because they're unprofitable.
Instead, we bring superior, affordable health care to our neighbors and local businesses in meaningful,
and innovative ways. And when we do turn a profit, we turn it back into the services you need.

There is no cure for

macular degeneration


KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST

Dr. William Thomas, MD,
founder of the Eden Altern-
ative says, "Aging is humani-
ty's greatest, most important,
and most. enduring discov-
ery." He goes on to say, "The
discovery and exploitation of
human longevity is what led
an obscure hominid on the
plains of Africa to evolve into
the globe dominating species


we have become."
But let us look around at
our culture. Look at TV and
magazines. What is important
- six-pack abs, a good booty,
dyed hair and even beards,
and a 4-hour erection. We
spend more money on plastic
surgery just so we can fit the
mold of our unprecedented
emphasis on the vigor of
youth. What is more impor-
tant an education or perky
breasts? This emphasis on
youth damages people of all
ages and distorts priorities,
public and private.
What kind of reality is it
that people are old at 65? Why
does the average teenager
spend 3.5 hours alone each
day? Why do we segregate our
young people from our
elders? Why do we push our
young people through child-


hood? No, time to play. We
seem to be trying to do away
with childhood and elder-
hood.
We have the most awe-
some resource in our elders to
solve our society's most diffi-
cult problems. But we must
change the way we view our
elders.
We all need to become
agents of change ... we need
to embrace aging and reclaim
the historic role of elders in
the community. We must
open ourselves up to the gifts
our elders have to give. Why
would we give up the time,
wisdom, stories, culture, skills
and other gifts our elders
have to share? This legacy will
make us better individuals,
better communities.
Dr. Thomas says, "Human
beings are meant to grow old,


not alone, but as members of
families and communities.
Creating a community that is
devoted to making a life
worth living for older people
reinforces the importance of
meaning and dignity for peo-
ple of all ages."
Our present programs and
institutions do not meet the
needs of our 21-century soci-
ety. So many programs fund-
ed by the government con-
centrate on the units of deliv-
ery. We have dozens of pro-
grams but are they focused
on the person? Do we deliver
love, care and compassion or
just a food bag? When we
focus on the units we do not
realize that our job is to save
lives, reverse loneliness, re-
store dignity, maintain free-

Play: Whatever happened to pretend?


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

One of the most common
questions among my group of
friends for the past 20 years is


"why. do our children buy so
much for their children?" An-
other is "why do our grand-
children think they have to
start out with things it took us
half a lifetime to acquire?"
Perhaps these questions
have been asked by genera-
tion after generation. But
have they ever been answer-
ed? Not to my knowledge. But
they continue to generate lots
of discussion, particularly
about using imagination and
pretend playing versus store
bought toys.
One of my favorite stories
is about deciding to play pre-


tend tea party with my two
granddaughters where-
upon both sets of parents
went out and bought each of
then a tea set. Another exam-
ple was my nature-loving son
going to a cabin in the
Adirondack's for a week, with
a car stocked full of books,
games and toys to keep their
daughter entertained. As so
often happens an hour spent
playing house under a beach
towel was one of the biggest
highlights. My grandson had
so many presents for his first
Christmas that he took two
days to open all of them. And


even at that tender age he
found the boxes more enter-
taining than the toys.
My daughter-in-law relates
a story from her childhood
that I love. She and her broth-
er piled boxes, suitcases and
many other items on a bed.
Then they put chairs on the
end of the bed, and sat in
them as if they were driving a
car. When their parents wan-
dered in and asked what they
were doing they said "We are
going on vacation." In their
mind going on vacation

dom and help see purpose
fulfilled. If we cannot deliver
that food bag with compas-
sion and the ride with love we
are short changing the elder
and ourselves. Measuring is
necessary but it has become
the first priority when it
should be the last.
So, you ask, who is going to
create these new institutions,
this new view on aging,
change the public's ideals of
aging and youth? I am con-
vinced the community of
faith is the institution called
to this task. Each has the
"Golden Rule" in one shape
or another but we also have


other common concerns
about our young and old and
how the world should oper-
ate.
Religion plays a major role
in the lives of many elderly
people. More than 50 percent
attend religious services
weekly or more often. For the
elderly, the religious commu-
nity is the largest source of
social support outside the
family. Active involvement in
religious community appears
to help elderly persons main-
tain their physical function-
ing and health status.
I see it as our responsibility
to create a community where
all people of all ages can live
for a lifetime. We must open


up new lines of thinking and
belief relative to aging and
longevity. We need to be the
starting point for people to
explore the future of aging.
We must assume the respon-
sibility to care for each other.
It is not enough to just write a
check or give some one a bag
of food.
Old age is difficult, but it is
essential because it teaches
us how to live like human
beings. Dare we miss out on
that wisdom and knowledge?

need for straight-ahead activ-
ities like reading, driving or
watching TV Here are some
things to know.
AMD
There are two forms of
age-related macular degener-
ation (AMD), wet and dry.
Ninety percent of all people
with AMD have the dry form
while 10 percent have the .
wet form. The symptoms will
vary depending on the type
of macular degeneration you
develop, but AMD usually
develops gradually and pain-
lessly.
Risk factors
The greatest risk factor for
macular degeneration is age.
Studies show that people
over age 60 are clearly a
Greater risk than any other
age group. Other risk factors
include:
Smoking: AMD is two to
three times as frequent
among smokers.
Obesity: A high-fat, high-
cholesterol diet can increase
the risk of AMD.
Family history: First-
degree relatives of people
with wet AMD may have
three times the risk of devel-
oping the disease.
Race: Whites are more
likely to lose their vision from
AMD than African ^
Ainericaqs. ,, .
Eye color: People width
lighter-colored eyes are at
greater risk.
Gender: Woman are more
likely to get AMD than men.
Hypertension: Can make
some forms of macular
degeneration worse.
Sunlight: Excessive expo-
sure to sunlight, is a risk fac-
tor.
Sunglasses and hats
should be worn as protec-
-tion.
Detection
Early detection is key,
because someone destined
to develop AMD can some-,
times be treated before
symptoms appear, which
may delay or reduce the
severity of the disease. If you
are over 50 years of age and
have begun noticing a hazy
gray spot in the middle of


your vision, develop trouble
reading the newspaper, or if
TV doesn't seem as clear or
colorful as it once did; go get
checked out! You may be
experiencing early signs of
AMD.
Treatment
and prevention
Currently, there is no
known way to prevent AMD.
In some cases, this disease
may be active and then slow
down, or even stop progress-
ing for years. Today, there are
several ways to work with
macular degeneration, de-
pending on the type and the
degree of the condition.
Here's what you should
know:
Dry AMD: There are cur-
rently no treatments or pre-
ventative measures for dry
AMD, however low vision
aids and rehabilitation are
available t6 assist patients in
coping with vision loss.
Wet AMD: There are two
treatments for wet AMD
including laser surgery and
photodynamic therapy.
These treatments will not
restore vision already lost
from the disease, but may
slow the rate of decline or
stop further vision loss.
Diet: Studies suggest that
eating fresh fruits and dark
green, leal. vegetables i-suIch ,.;I
as spinach, kale and collard
greens) may delay or reduce
die severitv of AM" ID.
Vitamins: The ARED study
done by the National Eye
Institute indicates that taking
high levels of antioxidants
like Vitamins A, C, E and beta
carotene, as well as zinc, may
also slow doing the progres-
sion of AMD. Be sure to talk
to your doctor before you
start taking any new vitamin
supplements.

DEUPREE :,
meant piling lots of things
into the car, and creative
playing was a healthy reflec-
tion of real-life experiences
combined with a child's inno-
cence.
Boxes and sheets have be-
come home for thousands of
fantasies over the years. Old
clothes have been made into
many a princess. Old-fash-
ioned animal and people fig-
ures have become genera-
tions of families, playing and
fighting endlessly.
My now adult grand-
daughter explained that we
have entered the era of com-
puter "edutainment," in
which we educate -through
animation and action. I agree.
We argue the benefits of
improved eye-hand coordi-
nation, and of computer liter-
acy. All true. But do we have to
give up individual creative
thinking and pretend playing
to make room for computer


"edutainment?" I hope not.
There is something about
playing house under a sheet
or creating dozens of fan-
tasies with a single box that
has endured for hundreds of
years and should endure
for a few more.
These two questions may
never be answered because it
seems that each new genera-
tion is turning out just fine -
even though they weren't
brought up the way we think
we would have done it.
Pretend is one part of
shaping our future genera-
tions. Real life is another. And
one thing I love about chil-
dren is that they always tell us
what they really think, and I
always try to listen.\ A
book by J.S. Salt titled "'Always
Kiss Me Goodnight" focused
on what today's children
think:
Spend more time with me
and less time watching TV
Keep your promises.
When I see you smoke and


see you drink too much it
makes me wonder why it's OK
for you but wrong for me to
try.
Please set a good example
after which I can model my
life.
Please tell me more than
"don't you do that." Please tell
my why!
Please always kiss me
goodnight. It reassures me
that you really love me and
respect me.
It seems that today's chil-
dren feel that some tradition-
al values and experiences are
still important.

Be snap happy when you travel


Twenty tips for taking
memorable vacation
photos.

BYCHARLENEJAEB
GUEST WRITER

These are suggestions
which I've found invaluable
when on vacation or traveling
the globe and hope you will
too. I love photography, but
am not a professional. These
20 tips represent about half
the suggestions I make when
speaking on photography for
Kiwanis groups, women's
clubs and others. The tips are
concise. If you have questions
or suggestions, e-mail me at


cdjaeb@stratos.net.
Happy snapping!
1. Take two cameras
(which you have previously
used) Possibly one "good"
camera (single lens reflex),
one point and shoot.
2. Pack extra fresh film and
batteries (twice what you
think you will need), or extra
memory cards if using a digi-
tal camera.
3. Include rolls of 400 and
800 film if you will be shoot-
ing indoors where flash pic-
tures are not allowed (muse-
ums, churches, perfor-
mances) or where you want
to capture action shots.
Editor's Note: Make sure you
have permission to shoot in these


places, especially at theatrical per-
formances, which generally are
subject to copyright laws.
4. If you carry a single lens
reflex (SLR) camera, place a
haze filter over the lens and
keep it there. It's inexpensive
and protects your expensive
lens.
5. Put identification on
your camera and its acces-
sories. I use the address labels
I receive in the mail.
6. Carry your film in your
travel bag and hand it to the
airport inspector so it will not
have to go through X-ray
machines. This is especially
true if you have 800 film. The
X-ray machines which they
use for checked baggage are


stronger.
7. Take "title shots" at each
place you visit (or buy post-
cards). Title shots help to
organize what, where and
when.
8. Take pictures of local
people in local costumes.
(Ask permission first.)
9. Take pictures of natives
doing things spinning
rugs, selling products, feeding
children. (Again ask per-
mission.)
10. Take pictures of people
you buy things from. If they
are handmade take a picture
of them with the article you
bought.
11. Take pictures of things
you bought. Good memories,


especially if you give them
away, or for insurance in case
the items are lost or stolen.
12. Take pictures of your
tour guide, driver and mode
of transportation.
13. Take pictures of things
you wanted to buy but didn't
because they were too expen-
sive or too hard to transport.
14. Take pictures of one or
two people with your camera
in the vertical position and of
larger groups with your cam-
era in a horizontal position.
(Always use a flash when tak-
ing pictures of people out-
doors even on sunny days.)
15. Pose large groups on
multiple levels such as steps.
16. Take close-up pictures


of people performing on
stage, if you have permission
to shoot the production.
17. When taking pictures of
people at tables, have half the
table members stand behind
the other half.
18. Windows and door-
ways, arches and archways
make interesting shots. (If
light is entering through the
opening, use your flash or
your pictures will be dark.)
19. Take close-up pictures
of animal and plant life not
native to your state.
20. Take close-ups of un-
usual food for sale in unusual
places dockside, roadside,
as well as close-ups of table
settings with food and drink


Sarasota County Health Department

urges caution with black henna tattoos


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County Health
Department officials join
regional public health offi-
cials in warning residents and
visitors of the risks associated
with black henna tattoos,
which are popular among
youth and others who want to
enjoy a "temporary" tattoo
while vacationing along the
gulf beaches for spring break.
Local public health officials
have received reports in
-recent years of people who
experienced allergic reactions
,and injuries to the skin from


black henna tattoos.
Henna, a coloring made
from a plant, is approved only
for use as a hair dye, not for
direct application to the skin.
Since henna typically pro-
duces a brown, orange-
brown, or reddish-brown tint,
other ingredients must be
added to produce other col-
ors, such as those marketed
as black henna. This so-called
black henna may contain the
coal tar color p-phenylenedi-
amine, also known as PPD.
The only legal use of PPD in
cosmetics is as a hair dye. It is
not approved for direct appli-


cation to the skin. This ingre-
dient may cause mild to seri-
ous allergic reactions in some
individuals who have a black
henna tattoo applied to the
skin.
Residents and visitors are
cautioned to be aware of the
risks associated with henna
tattoos in general, and black
henna tattoos in particular.
For more information or to
report possible reactions to
black henna tattoos, contact
the Sarasota County Health
Department's Environmental
Health office at (941) 861-

Two tickets may be cheaper than one


BYTOM PARSONS
GUEST WRITER

Sometimes buying a ticket
from point A to point B is not
the most economical way to
travel. It may be cheaper to fly
from point A to C then on to
point B. For example, travel
from Dallas to Hawaii can
cost $700. We often see tickets
from Dallas to Los Angeles for
under $200 roundtrip and Los
Angeles to Hawaii for $299
roundtrip, so combining
these tickets could save you
$200 or more. By purchasing
two separate tickets, travelers
can enjoy two destinations for
the price of one with the add-
ed benefit of a free stopover.
When traveling to the
Caribbean, Mexico, Central
America and South America,
Miami often offers the lowest
;rates. Fort Lauderdale is.also,
ivonr a look since it is quickly
becoming a cheap market to.
these destinations, thanks to
a push from US Airways.
If you're heading to the
Caribbean, be sure to also
check fares to San Juan,
Puerto Rico. Major airlines
often offer sale fares to San
Juan, and inexpensive flights
to other Caribbean spots such
as St. Maarten and Santo
Domingo are available from
San Juan.
Booking a flight to London
is a good option when your
final destination is the Middle
East, Africa or India. For
example, flights from Dallas
to Johannesburg, South Af-
rica, can cost nearly $1,400
round trip, whereas flights
from London to Johannes-
'burg are available for under
$600 roundtrip. With sale
fares from Dallas to London
sometimes available for $300
roundtrip, travelers could
save $500.
Check flights from Los
Angeles and San Francisco
when flying to Asia, the South
Pacific and western Mexico.

Detroit to Sydney, Australia,
were starting at $1,328 round-
trip, while flights from Los
Angeles to Sydney were start-
ing at $799 round trip. With
flights between Detroit and
Los Angeles available for
under $200 roundtrip, travel-
ers would save more than
$300 by purchasing two tick-
ets.
When buying tickets to
Europe it may be cheaper to
fly into London, Amsterdam
or Paris, then book a separate
trip on a low-cost carrier.
Also, if you want to travel to
more than one European des-
tination, flying may be your
cheapest mode of transporta-
tion. Airlines such as Ryanair
(ryanair.com) and easyjet
(easyjet.com) are the Euro-
pean versions of Southwest
Airlines. These no-frills carri-
ers offer economical fares to
multiple' destinations in
Europe and fares are general-
ly cheapest on the airlines'
own Web sites. Travelers
should keep in mind that
these airlines keep their fares
low by sometimes serving air-
ports that are far from city
centers. Baggage weight lim-
its can be low on these carri-
ers, such as 33 pounds per
person on Ryanair and 44
pounds on easyjet. Excess-
baggage fees could eat up


your savings.
Another cost-effective
strategy for European travel is
to fly into one city and out of
another for your transatlantic
flights. This will save the cost
of travel time and the money
for an additional intra-Eur-
ope flight.
With United States and
European markets saturated
with low-cost carriers, budget
airlines have been springing
up across Asia. If you find a
cheap flight into an Asian
destination such as Hong
Kong or Singapore and you
want to travel to other desti-
nations, check into low-fare
carriers such as Air Asia (aira-
sia.com) or Valuair (valuair
.comrn).
For a list of budget carriers
worldwide, access lowcost
airlines.org. Travelers should
comparison-shop, since low-
fare carriers' fares may not
offer the cheapest fare on
your itinerary.
To check fares from major
European carriers, access
opodo.com, the European
counterpart to Orbitz. For
currency conversions, access
oanda.com.

Indoor cats


live longer, healthier lives than outdoor counterparts....


GRACE JOYCE
PEf (O lUiIST


As I drive along the resi-
dential streets of our commu-
nity, I frequently see cats out-
side unattended. Many times


on busy streets where they are
in danger of being hit by a
vehicle. In addition to the
dangers the animals face,
owners also need to be aware
that there is a county ordi-
nance that requires animals
to be leashed or confined at
all times. Many feline. pet
owners also do not know that
keeping your cat indoors can
help them live a longer,
healthier life.
Most cats are very content
to live inside, provided they
have a window/door to watch
the world through, scratching'
posts, toys, and of course,
your love and attention.


Keeping your cat indoors pro-
tects your pet from predators
and reduces the likelihood it
will contract and spread seri-
ous diseases. Indoor cats are
also protected from cat fights,
cars, accidental poisoning
and rabid wild animals. It also
eliminates the risk of your cat
becoming lost or stolen.
' The general rule of thumb
to keeping a cat indoors is to
start young. Kittens who are,
kept inside usually show no
interest in venturing out as
they get older. If you currently
have an outdoor cat that you
would like to transition into
the great indoors, there are


many tips available to help.
Older cats often make the
transition to being indoor
pets easily. Some, however,
will take extra time and atten-
tion. To get started, gradually
reduce the amount of time
your pet is allowed. outside
and increase indoor playtime
with your cat. This will help
show your feline friend that
indoors can be fun too. As
your cat becomes more
accustomed to being indoors,
purchase a harness and lead,
or construct or purchase an
outdoor enclosure so that
when they are outside they
are safe.


According to the Humane
Society of the United States,
"while piany cats enjoy being
outside where they can hunt
prey and explore their sur-
roundings, it's a myth that
going outside is a require-
ment for feline happiness.
Playing regularly with a cat
easily satisfies her stalking
instinct, keeps her stimulat-
ed, and provides the exercise
she needs to stay healthy and
happy. In fact, the indoor cat
who gets lots of attention and
playtime is likely happier
than the indoor-outdoor cat
who is generally ignored by
her human companions."


Remember, even cats that

Conservancy receives donation


PHOTO COURTESY OF PAT DABBERT
Dabbert Gallery, 76 S. Palm Ave., Sarasota, is featuring an exhibition of more than 50
paintings by renowned area artist Craig Rubadoux. The exhibit celebrates a new large
collection of colorful, expressionistic oils on canvas and paper. It will run through March
19. Dabbert Gallery is located one block off of Main Street on South Palm Avenue in
downtown Sarasota. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and often
Friday until 8 p.m. Call 955-1315.


Peace River Audubon So-
ciety has awarded the Lemon
Bay Conservancy $4,770.16
for scrub jay land acquisition.
The donation is being incor-
porated into the Red Zone
Scrub Jay Habitat Program in
Charlotte County.
In 2004, the Lemon Bay
Conservancy acquired four
scrub jay lots in the Harbor
Heights area and put them
into preservation forever. The
lots are in the middle of the
area where Charlotte County
has retired several hundred
lots for the same purpose.
"Our intent is to continue
to work toward the acquisi-
tion of mbre lots in this very
sensitive area," said Perry
Cook, executive director of
the Lemon Bay Conservancy.
"It's the first time that two
small organizations have
joined together to combine
their independent funding
resources for the purpose of
acquiring land that is a natur-
al habitat for an endangered
species," said Cook. "It dem-
onstrates the strength that
can come from local organi-
zations working together for a
common purpose."


PHOTO COURTESY OF LEMON BAY CONSERVANCY


The donation represented
efforts by the Peace River
Audubon Society over a
three-year period. They host-
ed garage sales and encour-
aged private donations. The
funds were designated spe-
cifically for the purchase of
scrub jay habitat.
The Lemon Bay Conser-
vancy was selected by the
Peach River Audubon Society
because of the recent suc-
cesses of the organization in
preserving environmentally
sensitive lands. The Lemon
Bay Conservancy also ac-
quired the final remaining


parcel for completing Cedar
Point Park in 2004. This saved
habitat for nesting eagles
and gopher tortoises.
I "We encourage people
who live in the area to con-
tact us to discuss how best
to move forward to preserve
the remaining properties,"
said Cook.
The Lemon Bay Conser-
vancywas formed in 1971 for
the preservation, protection
and acquisition of natural
areas important in maintain-
ing the ecological balance of
Lemon Bay and adjacent
waters.

STAFF REPORT


A dedicated group of
licensed amateur radio ope-
rators (HAMS) is working
hard to make Southwest
Florida a safer place to live
and is looking for more
HAMS to join its cause.
Members of the Diocese
(Venice) Amateur Radio Net-
work, or DARN, are a group
of UHF/VHF radio stations
that assist the Catholic
Charities Disaster Response
Team. The network has three
base stations in Venice, Port
Charlotte and one soon to
open in Naples. Plans are
underway to set up radio sta-
tions in Fort Myers and
Arcadia. Expansion, however,
can only happen if more
HAMS volunteer to man the
radio stations when disaster
takes place.
'"As an organization that
responds to disaster, without
communications you are
nothing," said Bob Sullen-
berger KG4VDU, coordinator
of the Catholic Charities
Disaster Relief program and
a member of DARN. (Ama-
teur radio operators refer to
themselves with their call
signs after their names.)
"Amateur radio networks
save lives during disasters.
Even if phone and cell lines
remain operational, they get
jammed and communication
is slow," he said.
When Hurricane Charley
struck Southwest Florida last
year, the Venice radio station
was instrumental in helping
Catholic Charities staff to set
up hurricane recovery sites
throughout the affected areas.
However, the- Port Charlotte
station was not so fortunate.
"We worked .tirelessly to


establish a radio station
somewhere suitable in Port
Charlotte and eventually
were able to install one at St.
Joseph's Hospital," said Aldo
DiSalvo KC4NUX, a member
of DARN. To save money, 14
volunteer HAMS wired the
antenna to the roof of the
hospital themselves, running
the cable down five floors to
the radio station.
"It was an engineering
feat. We had it up and run-
ning for one day and then
Hurricane Charley struck and
blew the antenna down," said
DiSalvo. The antenna was
replaced immediately.
'"A radio station must be
located in an area where it
serves large populations dur-
ing a disaster. If a disaster
occurs in one city another
city's station can step in if the
station is damaged," said
DARN member Dave Boland
W9NWY. "The facility that
houses the station must have
height for the antenna, acces-
sibility during emergencies
.and back up power during
outages."
DARN radio operators also
work in collaboration with
local emergency manage-
ment offices during a disas-
ter. According to Sullenberg-
er, each radio station is
equipped with an UHF/VHF
ICOM IC-2720H Dual Band
FM Transceiver with a 100-
watt Astron RS-35A Power
Supply and a Diamond
X50NA Dual Band Antenna.
Also, the stations feature
hand-held transceivers that
can offer mobility to volun-
teer HAMS who accompany
Catholic Charities staff out in
the field.
"In a sense, we serve those
who serve the neediest,"


Boland said. "This is an op-
portunity to use our talents
and a hobby that we love in
an important way," ,said
Miguel Jimenez, WB4GDX,
DARN member. "You feel
good when you can actually
do something in a time of
disaster."
Most DARN members are
such amateur radio enthusi-
asts that they have radio sta-
tions located at their homes
that can be used as backup
if a DARN station is destroyed
during a disaster. Their love
of their hobby has proved
beneficial for the Catholic
Charities Disaster Response
Team. Wyatt McDaniel
W8HTD, a retired commercial
radio station engineer has
been invaluable to the DARN
program offering his exper-
tise in constructing the radio
stations. Husband and wife
team Regina K14AEQ and
Joe KG4WHN Chickino initi-
ated the installation of the
first radio station in Venice.
"Communication is such
an important part of a disas-
ter response plan," Sullen-
berger said. "Catholic Char-
ities USA is monitoring our
amateur radio project for rec-
ommendation to other Cath-
olic Charities agencies"
Catholic Charities in the
Diocese of Venice and Cath-
olic Charities USA also view
the value of the radio net-
work and have provided
funding.
DARN is looking for HAMS
located in the Venice, Port
Charlotte and Naples areas
and soon will be needing vol-
unteers in Fort Myers and
Arcadia. Anyone interested
can contact Bob Sullenberger
at (941) 497-5422 or e-mail
him at robertvnc9@aol.com.

inefficient) air conditioner as a package for
at least $1,100 less than you would have to
pay at any other time. Let me explain.
Every year, the months of January,
February, and March can "Kill" my
business. I end up losing a ton of money
during these "Killer" months and it can
take me the remaining eight months to
make up for them, and I'm looking for the
same thing to happen this year.
My Problem Is Your
Opportunity
I've decided to give up trying to make a
profit during the "Killer" months. If I can
only minimize my losses during January,
February, March and April, I will come
out ahead of the other eight months.
Here's how this (admittedly daring) offer
came about. Ever year, the big
manufacturers of air conditioners have to
guess how many to build to meet the
demand. Of course, they're never exactly
right, so, they always have some inventory
they must hold over until the next summer
season. I went to one. of these companies,
(they won't let me use their name) and
contracted for the purchase of 24 air
conditioners and air handlers in the four
most popular sizes used in SW Florida.
Because of the quantity and the time of
year, I was able to buy them at drastically
reduced, dirt cheap, out-of-season prices.
They are brand new 2004/2005 models.
And they are NOT the seconds or "blems"
or standard "builder" models. They are
factory-fresh, air conditioners and have a
full 10 year parts factory warranty.
Here's How You Can Get An
Air Handler For Peanuts
By putting this air handler and air
conditioner package together (then "Jaw-
Boning" the factory) and committing to a
do-or-die purchase agreement of 56
systems, I was able to buy both the air
handler and the air conditioning unit for
less than anyone should have a right to
pay! If you buy one of these normal 56
new, air conditioners (but only if one of
- the four sizes I have will fit your house, of
course), I am "giving" you the air handler
and all I ask for is the $341 in labor it


costs to have your air handler installed.
Here's How
Just call at 1-800-741-1233 anytime. I will
come out and measure your home (and
determine the availability of the proper size).
Don't forget, I only have 56 matched systems
in four sizes. When they are gone, this
remarkable offer ends also. I will show you the
real world price on the air conditioner that fits
your home, then, I will show you the
substantial savings now. It will include all
labor and installation materials. Nothing is
left out.
The Concept Is
Simply Really
By letting you win big now, I will win at the
end of the year. I'm betting that if I make you
an offer that is "irresistible" (at least it should
be if your air conditioner is over eight years
old) and I barely made it up above the price I
paid, I will accomplish two things:
1. I will cover my rent, utilities, insurance and
taxes in the Killer months.
2. I can pay my professional staff of 40
technicians to work instead of paying them.to
sit at home. If I can accomplish these two
objectives, I will minimize my losses and the
rest of the year, I can be a winner.
No Obligation .
Even after I completely explain the
installation, there is absolutely no obligation.
If you decide you don't want to take
advantage of the spectacular savings...that's
okay. I will give you a surprise gift because
you are kind enough to read this letter and
give me a chance to solve my problem. I want
you to think well of Anderson even if you don't
buy
You Can Buy
With NO Cash
You don't even have to pay me right away. I
have set up a terrific financing plan. I even
decided not to mark up the interest rate like
some companies do. Consider this. If you
decide to make monthly investments instead of
paying cash, the entire amount of your
payments might be more than offset by the
savings on your utility bills. It's like having
your cake and eating it too."


Manufactrr eae.


Why This Offer
Can't Last
You must act before April 15th (tax day).
Here are the two reasons why:
1. I can only have 14 of each of the four
sizes. When all the air conditioners are sold
and all the air handlers are "given" away in
a particular size, that's it. There are no
more at this price.
2.. If I have any of the 56 systems left on
April 15th (although I doubt I will), this
offer still ends. Here's why. The reason I am
making this virtually no-profit (for me) offer
is because of the killer months. My business
always starts to improve in April, and
because the air handlers cost me so little, I
can sell them, at 2005 prices next November
and December and still come out ahead.
Give a call now at 1-800-741-1233 and we
will set an appointment for your no-
obligation survey.
