Is Venice Municipal Airport secure?


Measures put in place have tightened the noose
on illicit activity, but holes remain. Reporters
were able to walk among planes unfettered.


BYGREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

A confidential study con-
cludes the American aviation
system remains vulnerable to
terrorist groups, with non-
commercial planes and heli-
copters at smaller airports
offering the most tempting
targets, the New York Times
reported on Monday.
.-Which invites the ques-
tion: Is security adequate to
thwart unauthorized activity
at Venice Municipal Airport?
'.- Not if people shouldn't be
able to get onto airport
grounds and walk among
planes unquestioned, as two
Venice Gondolier Sun staffers
did this week.
Two reporters had break-
fast at the airport Tuesday
morning, then went out the
restaurant's door to wander
among private aircraft. The
12-minute walk drew no
sirens or security guards. No
one came out to question if
the reporters belonged on the
tarmac.
They did, however, attract
a smile and wave from an air-
port worker who passed with-
in feet of them on a red utility
vehicle. They noticed no signs
restricting movement in or
out of the door through which'
they gained access to the pri-
vate aircraft.
SIt's this kind of hole in
security among airport ten-
afits that Fred Watts, hired
only three weeks ago as air-
port manager, intends to
plug. He's currently assessing
security and safety at the air-
pSrt.
"I'd be crazvto sayall secu-
rit' systems here are perfect,"
slid Watts. "We have a ,ot to
do. and when a fact is pointed
otit (reporters accessed
grounds unchallenged) then
it-is a fact, and we go on from
there.

always an important priority.

A city worker stands holding a pressure wash gun by a
garbage truck at the Venice Public works facility on Seaboard
Avenue in Venice.


Local residents know how
dirty their cars can get with'
Florida weather conditions.
Imagine how dirty it would
be hauling away the garbage
of 20,000 people twice a week.
That's what public works
employees out of the Sea-
board Av'enue office do, piling
up plenty of dirt and grime on
the oversized vehicles. Their


garbage trucks have to be
washed inside and out -
at the end of every hauling
day, which has raised the eye-
brows of the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection.
DEP is worried the 500 gal-
lons of garbage-truck-wash-
ing water generated every day
could wind up in the city's
stormwater systeri and the

Things brighter



for fire medic's son


The son of a Venice fire medic is battling
a rare blood disease and is ahead of the curve,
according to his father.


BY TOMMY MINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


In a few words, Venice fire
medic Steve Worobel speaks
volumes about his teenage
son.
"He is stabilized," Worobel,
33, said, "doing better than he
was."
The boy was diagnosed
with aplastic 'anemia, a rare
blood, disease, last November.
There is a chance he will need
a bone marrow transplant.
"The medication has taken
some effect," Worobel said.
"We are waiting to see if they
can give him two rounds of
the drug therapy he's on."
Worobel said his son is on
the drug ATG, which in fight-
ing the disease, suppresses
the immune system. He said

The Venice Fire Department
Benevolent Fund is sponsor-
ing a Steven Worobel Jr. Bar-
B-Que Benefit Sunday, March
20, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The event will be held at
the Moose Lodge, 111 North
Auburn Road, Venice.
There will be a raffle and
music from 2 to 5 p.m.
The cost is 57 for a meal to
eat there or take home.
The benefit is to collect
money to help the Worobel
family defray medical costs.
Donations can be made to
the Venice Fire Department
Benevolent Fund through any

Stephen got his first round in
December, but only two
rounds of ATG can be given.
He said doctors do not know
yet when, or, if, Stephen will
need a second round.

December."
Worobel said he must take
Stephen up to St. Petersburg
three times a week for treat-


Aplastic anemia is not a single disease, but a group of closely
related disorders characterized by the failure of the bone marrow
to produce all three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white
blood cells and platelets.
Aplastic anemia is rare, affecting fewer than 1,000 people each
year in the United States. The exact cause of aplastic anemia is
unknown.
It is also believed that some cases of aplastic anemia are inher-
ited and that some cases are due to a viral infection.
In aplastic anemia, the quantity of each of the three blood cell
types is much lower than normal.
These symptoms are unexplained infections due to fewer
white blood cells, unexpected bleeding due to fewer platelets and
fatigue due to fewer red blood cells.
Aplastic anemia is strongly suspected when two or three of the
cell counts are extremely low. A definitive diagnosis is made if a
marrow sample la biopsy) shows a great reduction in the number
of cells in the marrow itself.

home now. His father's train-
ing as a fire medic has come
in handy.
"I have to give him his
shots, change dressings,
things like that," Worobel
said, "so yes, the training is
useful but then it's so differ-
ent than giving shots to
strangers. This is my son."
Stephen has had a Broviac
tube surgically implanted in
his chest so that different
medications can be given
without having to prick him
with a needle.
Good sign
Worobel said the boy's
white blood count has risen.
"His bone marrow is slowly
growing again, which is a
great sign; there are children
who do not show any
progress with the drug,"
Worobel said. "Doctors say he
has' shown a 30-peicent
growth in bone marrow since


ment.
He said the lad's spirits are
good.
"He has his moments, you
know, a 14-year-old wants to
be jumping around, he wants
to be back in school," Wo-
robel said. "But, because of
the risk of infection, he can't
go back, so Sarasota County
has provided a home teacher
for him."
Worobel said Stephen is
the 14th child in the nation to
be part of a study on the effec-
tiveness of the drug ATG.
Worobel also said the
medical bills are piling up and
that he has. good insurance.
"I have no idea what it's
costing," he said. "But I can
tell you that for four days in
the intensive care unit, it was
$48,000."

Better view of North Confusion


A resident's complaint leads
to the state cutting out at least
six large bushes that blocked
the view of oncoming traffic.

eiJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Drivers no longer have to guess if
cars have stopped for the North
Confusion traffic light.
As of Tuesday, they can see for
themselves.
.Venice resident Norm Lupo com-
plained more than two months ago to
the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion about bushes, standing around 4
feet tall, at the intersection where
north U.S. 41 splits into the bypass and
business routes. Lupo pointed out how
someone riding in a standard-size car
could not see southbound traffic while
crossing U.S. 41 coming off or onto
Venice island.


It turned the drive into an act of
faith that drivers weren't blowing
through the red light.
FDOT officials met with Lupo on
Monday at the intersection to see what
he was talking about. The next day the
bushes were gone.
"You jtist have to wonder why it.
wasn't done before," Lupo said. "This is
just proof that citizens can make a dif-
ference. You just have to speak up."
Lupo also credited the city's support
and a Venice Gondolier Sun story in
January for getting FDOT to review the
matter.
Making a difference
The Venice resident said he knew
state officials would realize his point if
they stood at the four-lane intersection
for themselves and realized they
couldn't see oncoming traffic, all
because of a plant.
"If this saves just one life, think
about it, what a special thing this is,"
Lupo said. "Safety is everyone's


responsibility. It's not just up to the
governments or police. Everyone can
make a difference based on what they
observe."
North Confusion will be getting a
facelift later this fall. FDOT hopes to
start construction on expanding U.S.
41 to six lanes by October. The
project has yet to be sent out to bid.
Work will start at Bird Bay Drive
and go for 2.5 miles north through
Nokomis to State Road 681. The goal
for completion is two years, according
to Chuck Wood, project manager for
the U.S. 41 expansion.
There is no date for U.S. 41 Bypass
construction, the area south of Bird
Bay Plaza to Center Road. FDOT will
spend the next three years coming
up with q new design plan because
the 1993 plans are outdated and
the right of way land wasn't pur-
chased.

VHS science lab may get another red tide grant


The mayor wants to spend another $1,000
on researching the effectiveness of possible cure

BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

,Venice High School's sci-
ence department has been
working for more than a year
to verify a local inventor's
solution to red tide.
So far, the only outside
money to help this project was
$1,,000 from Venice City
Council a year ago that pur-
chased a high-powered mic-
roscope. .
Mayor Dean ,Calamaras
wants to offer another $1,000
grant as students investigate
the cure's affect on water ani-
mals., Initial research has
shown the chemical solution
kills the red tide bacteria, and
students are now testing to
see if it harms other creatures.
"They've purchased 10
new aquariums for this sec-
ond phase, and j think we
should help them," Calamaras
said at the March 8 meeting.
when he suggested the grant.

VHS science teachers and
students shared their findings
to council in February during

might be something to this,"

Dedicating the


Venice Train Depot


STAFF REPORT

Tuesday will be a special
:day for Venice residents, and
one former resident in partic-
ular.
Sarasota County officials
have scheduled a ceremony
: to dedicate the historic Ven-
ice Train Depot and adjacent
Rollins W. Coakley Railroad
Park.
The event will honor the
man who was primarily re-'
poDonsible for the preserva-
tion and restoration of the
site.
On Feb. 23, Sarasota Coun-
ty commissioners unani-
mously agreed that the his-
toric building at 303 Venice
Avenue East would retain the
name of the Venice Train
Depot and the small park to
the north of the building
would be known as the
Rollins Coakley Railroad Park.
Coakley was the commun-
ity leader, who in 1988 began
championing the idea of re-
storing the depot, which
played an important role in
the development of Venice.


"I think that's a great com-
promise," said commissioner
David Mills during the com-
mission discussion about
naming the facility. "We
wouldn't have that facility if
we had not had his (Coak-
ley's) involvement."
County commissioner
Shannon Staub has also sug-
gested that staff investigate
the possibility of installing a
plaque at the site to com-
memorate other individuals
who also played a role in the
restoration of the train depot.
Today, the restored historic
depot serves as a transfer sta-
tion in South County for the
Sarasota County Area Transit
system, allowing riders from
Venice, Englewood and North
Port to catch a direct-line bus
to North County.
Tuesday's ceremony will
take place at noon at the
Venice Train Depot, 303 E.
Venice Ave. The event is open
to the public.

and airport operations.
Any changes or exp'n-
sion of the restaurant must
be approved by city courPiil,
according to the contract.
Here are the three im-
provements Sharky's has pro-
posed:
Replacement of hurri-
cane-damaged patio covers
with "chickee huts" instead
of the previous canvas.
Sharky's has already in-
stalled most of these huts
without asking for permis-
sion and was found guilty
last November of building
code violations.
A temporary bait ship
while restaurant waits for city
construction of the perma-
nent one. Sharky's is at the
opening of Venice Fishing
|{


Pier. The metal shed would
be 128 square feet.
Installation of a perma-
nent enclosure around an
existing outdoor vending
machine.
All of the proposed im-
provements are within the
restaurant's boundaries, ac-
cording to the city manager's
report.
City staff determined pre-
vious expansion requests
crossed property lines.
Other items'
Also on Tuesday's city
council agenda:
Hurricane debris- -
Final reading will be held on
the hurricane debris protec-
tion law. Council members
only passed the item by a 4-3


vote at the last council meet-
ing. This new ordinance, the
first of its kind along the Gulf
Coast, would give contractors
24 hours. after a hurricane
watch is issued to secure
loose debris at a work site.
Penalties include up to a
$500 fine, 60 days in jail
and revoking of business
license.
New condos Final
reading on amending the
future land use map to allow
rezoning at 649 Guild Drive
to allow construction of a
new two-story condomini-
,um.
Renaissance Group of
Venice wants the area re-
zoned so it can build the 16-
unit condominium complex
to replace eight residential


buildings that now sit there.
Rezoning of the 1.13-acre
property would allow up to
18 units per acre.
Water/sewer fee increase
- Final reading to increase
the cost of water and sewer
tap-in fees. All line sizes
would be increased by $120.
For example, a 5/8-inch line
would jump to $270, com-
pared to $150 now.

presentation from Janis
Fawn of the Venice Histori-
cal Commission on pro-
posals to save the city's old-
est house, 811 Laguna Drive,
built in 1896 and risking
demolition. The new owner

Nearly a month ago, Venice
attorney Dan Boone returned
the city's refund check of
$7,781.52 for Venice Golf
Association being over-
charged on reclaimed water
use at its golf course.
Boone sent the check back
and said in a Gondolier Sun
interview, "There are other
things that need resolved.".
City Manager Marty Black
doesn't have a problem with
VGA refusing to cash the
check. He simply applied the
refund amount to VGAs utility
bill.
As for the other matters
that need resolved, Black is
questioning agreements that
may have been made before
he took over as city manager
and is consulting with City
Attorney Bob Anderson be-
fore taking any other action.
"The past activities of the
Venice Golf Association, and
potentially of the city. have
raised questions in my mind
that I have asked to be
reviewed by the city attorney "
Black wrote to Boone on
March 15.
Snowbirds prepare
This is the time of year
when many of the city's win-
ter residents leave the area for
the summer months.
The city of Venice recom-'
mends everyone who will not
be here during the summer
do several things before they
leave to help their neighbors
who stay behind;
Be sure to remove all out-
door furniture, lawn tools,
bird houses, bird baths and
other ornamentation from
their lawns and secure them
in an enclosed area. During
high winds these items can
cause severe damage.
Besides being at potential
hazard during a hurricane,


bird baths left unattended
during the rainy season be-
come a breeding ground for
mosquitoes:
Residents who will be away
from Venice for 120 days or
more may have their water
shut off for that period of time
at no cost.
If gone for less than 120
days, the cost for turning it
back on is $35.
Having the water turned
off ensures there will be no
leaks or unexplained usage
during the resident's absence.
Request forms for meter
locks are available in the
cashier's office at Venice City
Hall, 401 W. Venice Ave. For
more information, call Cus-
tomer Service Manager Marie
Barnes at 486-2626, Ext. 2030.
Another convenience for
city residents, especially
those who will be away for
extended periods of time, is
the bank draft for paying city
utilities bills. To sign up for
the program, visit the cash-
ier's office or call the above,
number.
Road work
Expect nighttime lane clo-
sures on East Venice Avenue,
on the island side of the
Venice Avenue Bridge to U.S.
41 Business during the week
beginning March 21, between
7 p.m. and 6 a.m. while
Sarpsota County Transpor-
tation does the final striping
on the pavement.
This project is expected to
be completed by the end of
the week.
Watch for one lane to be

Commissioners to decide




Pinebrook alignment


But don't expect construction to begin this
decade: It's going to cost more than $50 million
and has to be coordinated with the widening of I-
75.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
Construction is at least five
years away, but Sarasota
County commissioners will
determine the final align-
ment for the extension of
Pinebrook Road this week.
During their meeting
Tuesday the first in the
Robert L. Anderson Admin-
istration Center in South.
Venice in over a year com-
missioners are being asked to
select the route that will con-
nect Honore Avenue and
Pinebrook Road between
Laurel Road and State Road
681.
* The alignment being
offered is the same one that
staff and consultants un-
veiled to the public at a work-:


shop in January.
That alignment calls for
the new road to start at the
1Pihebrook/Laurel intersec-
tion, bypassing a wetland
before taking a rightward jog
to approach Interstate 75.
From there, Pinebrook/Hon-
ore will proceed northerly,
parallel to the interstate pass-
ing the Kings' Gate and
falusa Lakes subdivisions.
Just north of Calusa Lakes, the
route veers away from the-
Imnterstate in a northwesterly
' direction to its intersection
i ith S.R. 681.
i The 3.8 mile, four-lane
,'oad will cost an estimated
$53 million to build. That
includes design costs of $4.2
million, right of way acquisi-
non of $6 million and actual
Construction of $42.8 million.

Concurrency
According to a.memo from
Jim Harriott Jr., general man-
ager of the' county's Public
Works Mobility Department,
the preferred alignment is
based upon "environmental
impacts, human and social
impacts, right of way impacts,
cost and public comments."
According to Robert Fak-
hri, a project engineer with
Wilbur Smith Associates, the
county's consultant, the pro-
ject will include sidewalks on
both sides, bike'lanes and a
raised median. Part of the
road will be constructed in
vacated lanes of the interstate
as the state shifts 1-75 into the
existing median as part of the
widening project.
Because the project is tied
to the state's widening of the
interstate, the county's design
phase "must run concurrent"
with the state's design phase,
Harriott wrote. The county
plans to use part of the cur-
rent interstate right of way-
which the state will no longer


need as the interstate shifts -
for,the new road.
Commissioners will meet
in regular session beginning
at 9 a.m. on Tuesday at the
Robert L. Anderson Adminis-
tration Center, 4000 South
Tamiami Trail, Venice and
again at 9 a.m. on Wednesday
in Commission Chambers in

WATER from page 1A
DEP complaint
DEP did not conclude gar-
bage truck water was entering
the Intracoastal, but deter-
mined there is a significant
risk because a stormwater
drain is only 100 feet from the
water's discharge point.
Trucks are washed on a.
concrete pad at 221 Seaboard
Ave. Water flows into a drain,
where it passes through a
series of three concrete tanks
and is discharged into an
unlined basin.
There it sits until gradually
evaporating or being ab-
sorbed into the ground.


Workers shovel solid refuse
off the concrete pad that's
washed out of the inside of
garbage trucks.
Venice was given three
options by DEP to correct the
problem and all three in-
volved spending more mon-
ey.
"I just said, 'Whatever we
need to do to address these
issues, let's do it,' City
Manager Marty Black said of
his direction to staff.
Solutions
This has been the practice
for years. Woodley, who is in
charge of the city's stormwa-
ter system, speculates DEP


has never considered what
was going on because there
are no requirements for
washing of garbage trucks
and how the water is handled.
But these inspectors classi-
fied the water as industrial
waste, and said the city must
install a costly recycling sys-
tem, pay a licensed hauler to
remove the water or hook up
to the city's septic system.
Venice is going for option
three, assuming the city
wastewater department
approves accepting the
garbage truck water.
"In a perfect world, this is
what we will do," Woodley
said. "Both sides of the issue


are working very well togeth-
er."
Utilities officials have rais-
ed concern that accepting
garbage water could harm the
treatment plant. Micro-or-
ganisms are used to break
down material in wastewater,
but garbage depletes oxygen
as it decays and could poten-
tially destroy the tiny bugs.
Woodley doesn't believe
the small amount of garbage
water, about 500 gallons a
day, is enough to hurt a 6-mil-
lion-gallon-per-day opera-
tion. Testing is being done,
however, and the results
should be in within a couple
of weeks.


Hooking up to the waste-
water system is as simple as
installing a short piece of pip-
ing to the drain and could be
done by city employees.
The other two options
would have to be contracted
out, and while there are no
estimates, Woodley knows
they would be more expen-
sive.
"This has been a gray area
for permitting for years,"
Woodley said. "I felt very
comfortable with the assis-
tance DEP has been giving us,
and this'll work out."

HOSPITAL fro m page 1 A


of land at Laurel and Pine-
brook roads, where zoning
was just approved to allow a
new shopping center.
A message left with North
American Properties for com-
ment was not returned, and
it's unclear if the shopping
center proposal could be
dumped in favor of a hospital
facility.
"No, there still have been
no official requests (of Ven-
ice)," Black said. "I did check
and zoning does not current-
ly permit hospital facilities
there.... Because city council
has not even had any briefin-
gs on it, or spoken with Sara-
sota Memorial on their plans,
it is premature to talk about (if
zoning would be granted)."
Initially, the spot appeared
to be outside of city limits and
east of Interstate 75 near the
Eastside Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant on land common-
ly known as the Starland Par-
cels.
But when asked specifical-


ly about the location and ad-
dress, or even if it was along
the southern edge of Laurel
Road, Lazarus declined to
comment.
The Starland Parcels would
be under Sarasota County
government jurisdiction,
while the North American
Properties spot would be city
jurisdiction. Both patches of
land have around the 66 acres
SMH is looking to purchase.
Out-patient services
Lazarus would talk about
proposed facilities, and how
an ambulatory care center
would be SMH's first priority.
Often called a neighborhood
hospital, a care center spe-
cializes in outpatient care,
testing and treatment.
Unlike the proposed 80-
bed hospital, a certificate of
need from the state is not
needed for a care center. All
SMH would need are building
permits and zoning and then
year's worth of construction.


"It's a wide array of outpa-
tient services, but also with a
primary care physician base;"
Lazarus said. "We don't need
a certificate of need for that
type of facility, and (a care
center) is needed down
there."
SMH has two other care
centers, one in Osprey by
Blackburn Point Road and
another off University Park-
way in Sarasota.
Lazarus also wanted to,
clarify that the inpatient hos-
pital is several years away.
SMH still has to appeal the!


certificate of need denial by
the Florida Agency for Health
Care Administration a little
more than four months ago.
This agency decides how
many patient beds are need-
ed in Florida, and a CON
must be granted in order to
open a hospital.
Lazarus believes the CON
will eventually be approved
because the plan is to redis-
tribute 80 beds from the Sara-
sota city hospital down to the
Laurel Road site.
As for the hospital actually
opening, Lazarus said there

Fair officials


wait for offers to




come their way


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Sometimes it's more difficult
to sit back and wait for new
opportunities to knock than
pursue them, but that's what
Sarasota County Fair officials
have been forced to do. They
can boast about owning valu-
able assets, but not the most
important one. What they don't
have is money.
For decades, volunteers
who put on the annual coun-
ty fair have operated on a
financial shoestring without
public dollars. They've limped
along with out-of-date facili-
ties, and rented portions of
the 65-acre complex to raise
enough operating revenue.
Some of the community's
most influential citizens have
served on the fair board, but
they've never convinced
county and city political lead-
ers that preserving the area's
agricultural heritage warrants
either a long-term investment
or an annual subsidy.
Depending on whom you
listen to, the fairgrounds is
either a thing of the past that
should be sold off and the fair
moved somewhere out in the
boondocks, or it is a diamond
in the rough that could flour-
ish if given a proper facelift
with the right anchor tenants.
One prospective tenant
that has been discussed for
years is Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Circus,
which has expressed strong
interest in bringing its travel-
ing shows back for six-week
winter quarters stays and per-
formances.
Fair leaders have prepared
for the Wturure by overhauling
their policies and procedures,
ending a long reliance on the
Hauser family to run day-to-
day operations, and moving
administrative offices to the
former County Extension Ser-
vice building.
All in due time
Rory Martin, a 41-year-old
board member with an exten-
sive agriculture background,
has taken over the dual re-
sponsibilities of being both
president and manager of a
unique enterprise that annu-
ally operates on only a $1.3
million budget and wants to


expand.
The fairgrounds is located
at 3000 Ringling Blvd. just east
of Tuttle Avenue and a block
off Fruitville Road, on a
sprawling tract that facility
planners previously dis-
missed as too far out of the
downtown core and away
from Main Street amenities.
What fair board members
know, and elected officials are
waking up to, it that down-
town Sarasota land is scarce.
and very expensive. Just how
expensive is becoming evi-
dent as they evaluate plans to
build a conference center
near the Sarasota bayfront.
While they dissect a chamn-
ber of commerce proposal
that would require a: 1) 2-cent
tourist tax increase; 2) dona-
tion of city land; and 3) addi-
tional tax dollars to build a
parking garage, the fair board
watches and waits.
"We have plans to build a
new multi-purpose arena,
agricultural exhibition build-
ing and upgrade the entire
facility," Martin said. "What
we don't know is where the
new buildings would -go, or
how to pay for them. There
will come a time for that."
Conference center
The fair board wants city
permission to vacate Ringling
Boulevard in front of old
Robarts Arena and reconfig-
ure the fairgrounds layout so
it fronts on Fruitville Road. A
new arena would connect

Last year, County Admin-
istrator Jin Ley briefly ex-
plored a fairgrounds reloca-
tion with a fair board com-
mittee, but the idea was
politely rejected by members
who realize how central the
fairgrounds has become to

County commissioner Da-
vid Mills, a fair-board mem-
ber, has suggested that con-
ference center proponents

grounds because its is pub-

available space and a motel is
being built nearby on Fruit-

SLA adding eighth grade, more classes


Led by principal Vickie Marble, nurturing values,
small classes and involved parents are hallmarks
of the Venice charter school's success.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

FCATs are over.
"That's a big yippy-yi-o-ki-
yay," said Vickie Marble, prin-
cipal of the Student Lead-
ership Academy, a Venice
island charter school in its
first year of operation.
Marble served as one of
the high-stakes test adminis-
trators this year for the fledg-
ling school. Now that FCATs
are over, she can turn her
attention to ,other pressing
business, like enrolling stu-
dents for next school year.
Plans include adding
eighth grade and art and mu-
sic classes. A fourth and fifth
wing of the former nursing
home the SLA occupies will
be renovated this summer to
add more classroom space.
Open enrollment for the
2005-06 school year runs
through March 24.
"I anticipate the incoming
sixth grade will be quite large,
based on the number of tele-
phone calls. The new eighth
grade program is expected to
add another 40-50 students to
the school," Marble said.
What's drawing parents,
and their children, to SLA is
smaller class sizes and an
alternative to large public
schools.
"People are loving the idea
of small class sizes," Marble
said. "Elementary school is
always a safe and secure envi-
ronment. There is a lot of
good feeling because of the
very nurturing environment.
Often when a child leaves ele-
mentary school and goes to a
bigger school all of that
changes. Lots of parents have
concerns about their children
:getting lost in the bigness of it
all."
Advocates say charter


schools hold the promise of
greater parental control, and
hearken back to a safer time
when students couldn't be
anonymous in the neighbor-
hood school.
"The parents who send
their children here like a
smaller, more personalized
school setting. That's where
charter schools come in.
Charters are quite a lot small-
er than a traditional school,
and they maintain that nur-
turing environment. Parents
want their child to continue
in an atmosphere where
everybody knows everybody.
Here there is a greater oppor-
tunity for everyone to come
together like a school family.,
"We have a very active par-
ent group, strong community
support, great staff and great
kids all the makings of
what can be a high quality
charter school."
Florida law authorizing
publicly funded charter
schools passed in 1996 and
began with five schools. The
following year the number
grew to 33. Today there are
305 charter schools operating
in Florida. School officials
guesstimate another 40-50
are likely to come on online
this fall.
Charter cop
Marble's been at the fore-
front of Florida's charter
school movement ever since
it began.
She is a founding board
member of Florida Consor-
tium of Charter Schools and
was appointed by the gover-.
nor to serve on the Charter
School Review Panel. The
panel makes recommenda-
tions to the legislature, school
districts, Department of Edu-
cation and othdr charter
schools for best practices in


overall operation.
Not only are the number of
charter schools growing, but
also the failures, she says.
"Basically, in addition to
the tremendous growth in
charter schools, there are
some schools throughout the
state that have had financial
issues and academic issues,"
Marble said. "Very soon sev-
eral school districts will be
issuing 90-day-notices to
charter schools that haven't
been performing over a peri-
od of time, or that have had
large ongoing deficits.'f
What's tripping up some of
the schools, according to
Marble, is accQuntability un-
der state laws, more strict fed-
eral No Child Left Behind
requirements, and poor busi-
ness acumen.
"Schools that don't have
business savvy, or who 'don't
understand state or federal
guidelines by which a charter
school can and cannot spend
public funds, and or who
aren't keeping up with report-
ing requirements, or living
within their budgets they
could be in jeopardy," Marble
said.
I've seen a lot of charters
that just don't think they have
to do all these things. But they
do. They have 'to follow laws
and guidelines.
"Some charter schools
have been in business for four
to six years. They've had
enough time to show they can
make it financially and pro-
vide a quality education. If it's
not working, it is time for
them to get out of the busi-
ness." :

Beach alleges a problem with
accounting at one charter
school. In response, Palm

Bishop Nevins Academy to serve

as new public emergency shelter
The Sarasota Board of County Commissioners have approved a lease
agreement with Bishop Nevins Academy, adding the academy to the county's
public emergency shelter list. This addition will add 3,100 shelter spaces during
evacuations and is the first public/private non-profil sheltering in the county.
The Bishop Nevins Academy, located at 4380 Fruitville Road in Sarasota,
features unique domed facilities that offer outstanding wind resistance. These
structures will be further hardened through a grant the county will receive from
the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Sarasota County
applied for and will receive $241,051 from FEMA on behalf of The Diocese of
Venice, the private non-profit organization that operates Bishop NevinsAcademy.
An additional $80,351 will be used from county general funds to meet the25
percent local match requirement for the FEMA grant,
"This project is an exciting opportunity and Is a good example of a public/.:
private non-profit cooperative relationship that will benefit the citizens of Sarasota
County and helps to assure their safety when they need to seek shelter during
an evacuation," according toAnne Miller, operations chief, natural disasters for
Sarasota County Emergency Management,

Anderson Administration Center

reopens to board meetings March 22
One year after its roof collapsed barely an hour before county commissioners
were set to convene, the newly rebuilt board chamber at the Robert L, Anderson
Administration Center at4000 S. Tamiami Trail in Venice will reopen Tuesday,
March22,atg9a.m.
This will be the first meeting to be held in the chamber since the roof collapsed
on March 16, 2004. Most of the agencies located in the center were able to
reopen within a day of the accident, and the adjoining Health Department's
Environmental Health office expects to be fully operational by the end of the
month.
'At Tuesday's meeting, Facilities Services General Manager Don Moultney will
recognize county employees whose instincts last March have been credited with
saving lives. After maintenance workers noticed cracks and a bulge in the ceiling,
the building was evacuated. Because of those employees' quick actions, no one
was injured that day.
BELFOR USA Group Inc. of Tampa handled restoration of the building under a
S$1.1 million construction contract approved by the county last July. With additional
funds for equipment and furniture that was lost to the accident, the entire $1.4
million project was overseen by Sarasola County Public Works.

Venice student

possible target

abduction

STAFF REPORT

,P,&The Sarasota County
ool District has issued an
rw to all its school bus dri-
-s to be on the look out for
11 suspicious activity along
their routes, said Sheila Weiss,
communication supervisor
with the Sarasota County
School Board.
The alert is in response to a
possible abduction attempt
on Thursday, when a 7-year-
old girl from Taylor Ranch
Elementary was approached
by an older man in the Venice
East area. The man pulled
over as she was walking home
anrd asked the young girl to
come closer to his car. The girl
ran home and told her par-
ents, who notified the school
resource officer.
The Sarasota Sheriff's Of-
fice is investigating the in-
cident.
Sgi. Chuck Lesaltato said
officers had taken a field re-
port and deputies were aware
of the matter and asked to be
on the alert for any suspicious
activity in the area.
In January, an Englewooc,
man was arrested after al"
legedly trying to force two
high school students into his
car outside a Dearborn Street
business. The suspect, Fredric
R. Richter, later told investiga-
tors he had tried to pick up a
young girl at a bus stop the
previous day. He. is in the
Sarasota County Jail awaiting
trial.

"I'm conflicted," said Pap-
pas, who noted that voters
reaffirmed their support for
the original amendment in
recent polls. "I'm torn be-
cause of the voters."
Pappas noted there was no
direct or indirect fiscal advan-
tage for MCC. Funds saved
under the amendment could
free up monies for education
in general, she said, but the
governor plans to use the sav-
ings in part to increase K-12
beginning teacher salaries,
with no expectation of in-
creasing funding for postsec-
ondary education.
Trustee Ed Vogler said it
wasn't a direct issue for MCC.
"It's one of those things we
should stay out of," Vogler
said.
Other trustees agreed it
was not their issue. The board
declined to forward a letter of
support for the proposal.
Coalition position
Trustees signed on to a
platform of legislative .posi-
tions supported by schools
and universities in a three-
county area. The Suncoast


Educators Coalition platform
calls for education to be the
top funding priority by ensur-
ing adequacy of funding for
K-20 public education. It also
asks the state to match funds
provided by educational
foundations and private con-
tributions.
The platform calls for in-
creased support using Florida
lottery funds for scholarships
and financial aid to part-time,
low-income students. It also
calls for,increased funding to
support workforce education
funding, and reinstating the
old weighting .system that
would increase funding for
vocational programs.
The coalition further sup-
ports providing adequate
construction dollars to meet
"the urgent need for addition-
al educational facilities," in-
cluding support for school
districts to levy 2.5 mills for
capital outlay instead of the
current 2 mills, and authoriz-
ing school boards to use capi-
tal outlay mileage dollars to
pay property/casualty insur-
ance premiums.
The Suncoast Educators
Coalition includes the school
boards of Charlotte, Manatee
and Sarasota counties, MCC,
USF, New College, FGCU and
Edison College.
Teacher shortage
Addressing the teacher
shortage in Florida, MCC
trustees approved a grant
application with the Florida


Department of Education to
develop an alternative educa-
tion certification program.
MCC will apply for a
$240,775 grant to develop a
Bridges to Teaching transition
teaching component offering
professionals with at least a
bachelor's degree a chance to
gain certification. The pro-
gram ;will take the average
candidate three years to com-
plete, Wbut can be finished in
two, requiring 295 contact
hours. The program would
cost less than $2,000 in col-
lege fees.
The state needs 20,000
new teachers over the next
year, said Pappas. Florida's
universities are graduating
only 5,000 educators per year,
she said. School districts have
their own alternative certifi-
cation programs, but they are
only for their own employees.
MCC has a role to play and is
glad to help school districts
address the teacher shortage,
she said.
MCC administrators have
not decided at which campus
the program will be offered,
but they expect to have the
program up and running by
next fall. Seventy-five individ-
uals are expected to partici-
pate in year one of the pro-
gram.
"MCC will find out where
the demand is," said Kath-
erine Walker, MCC director of
public affairs and marketing.
"If it turns out the demand is
in the Sarasota area, then the


program will be offered in
Venice. If the demand is
spread out, it will likely be
provided at the Lakewood

Cavallaro the pick for basketball coach


Venice resident has won 41 games the
past two seasons as coach at Sarasota High.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


It was a tough decision for
Venice High athletics director
Larry Sandburg, but in the
end, Steve Cavallaro stood
out from the rest of a quali-
fied bunch vying for the
Indian boys varsity basket-
ball job.
Cavallaro will leave his job
as head coach at Sarasota
High and take on the chal-
lenge of putting together a
successful program at Venice,
which last had a winning
season in 1998-99 when
Cavallaro was an assistant


under Tom McLaughlin.
McLaughlin stepped down
two weeks ago after 16 years
at the Indian helm.
"I interviewed some really
good guys," said Sandburg,
whose list of candidates in-
cluded DeSoto coach Dave
Oness and football assistant
Jeremy Brown. "Steve is really
a good coach. He's very
organized. He lives here. He's
familiar with the type of kids
we have."
Venice only graduates
two seniors from a team
that finished 13-14 in 2004-
2005. The returning cast is
talented with loads of


potential.
"I don't know how good
we'll be," said Cavallaro, a
41-year old father of three. "It
all depends on how quickly
they pick up the system. My
program isn't the same as
Tom's. My motto has always
been "do a little extra to be
extraordinary' "
Cavallaro has been at
Sarasota six years, posting
winning seasons in half of
those. His overall record is,
but the Sailors have been
20-4 and 21-8 the past two
seasons. This past season,
they made it to the region
semifinals before being
eliminated by Santaluces.
Cavallaro previously play-
ed and coached in his native
Maine. He was a forward at


Portland High and played a
year of college ball at
Southern Maine, where he
graduated.
He was head coach for six
years at Lake Region High in
Bridgeton, about 30 miles
north of Portland.
"Two of the last three
years we made it to the State
Final 4," Cavallaro said. "I
was Coach of the Year in
1998."
Cavallaro was an assistant
under McLaughlin in 1998-
99, which was ironically Ven-
ice's last outstanding season.
Cavallaro filled in as head
coach when McLaughlin's
father died.
Cavallaro, who has lived
in Chestnut Creek with wife
Judy and the kids since mov-


ing to Florida in 1998, teaches
social studies at Sarasota
High. He is hoping to bring
his assistant coach at SHS,
Silvio Tassotti, to help him 'at
VHS.
Cavallaro said he wants to
work closely with the local
youth programs.
"I've talked to Dave
Shacklett ay the Y," he said. "I
want to do kids clinics and
coaches clinics. I know there
are four AAU teams 14
and under, 13 and under, 11
and under and the high
school kids."
Cavallaro is also talking
about a summer youth camp
with current high school
players acting as counselors.
"I'm real excited to get the
ball rolling," he said.


Venice High on track



for very good season


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High track and
field athletes put in solid
performances on a chilly
night in Bradenton Friday.
The girls and boys teams
competed in the Southeast
Invitational.
The Lady Indians were
impressive in placing second
to Riverview in team points.


There were several outstand-
ing individual performances.
The boys also had their
moments and placed a
respectable fourth in the 10-
school field.
"I'm so proud of my
girls," said Lady Indian coach
Brenda Clark, who is assisted
by Joe Aviella and Rich Sta-
rowesky. "They have really,
been performing well."
The conditions weren't


the best at cold, wet South-
east, making the efforts even
more special.
The Venice girls had three
first-place finishes.
At the top of the list in
the 4 by 800 relay, which
smoked Riverview with a
season's best 10 minutes, 32
seconds. Running the legs
were Stephanie Korszen,
Genna Jones, Katie Adams
and Chelsea Rose.


lorio was also third.,
Coach Clark was totally
impressed by Ellis.
"She deserves a star,"
coach said. "She ran a leg of
the 4 by 400 and she was
fourth in both the 200 and
high jump."
Mitchell was fourth in the
100. She is just beginning to
get her track legs after a long
basketball season.
Clark was pleased with the
efforts of her triple jumpers -
Melissa Garafelo, Lulu Smith
and Adams.


The Venice boys, revived
under new coach Larry
Shannon and assistant Jer-
emy Brown, had a winner in
Aaron Stahl, who tossed the
shot put 45 feet. It was his best
throw of the year and first
first. Stahl was second in the
discus at 127 feet.
Mike Kimson placed in
the discus and Russ Harris
placed in the shot put.
Adrian Platt was third in
the long jump. He also com-

Indians relentless in

rematch with Pirates


BY DON HUTCHINS
CORRESPONDENT

Friday evening proved to
be an awfully cold night for
the Port Charlotte High base-
ball team.
In their second match-up
of the season, the Venice
Indians showed no mercy to
the visiting Pirates.
Venice High coach Craig
Faulkner admitted after the
game, "We played well. It was
nice getting everyone to play
well. We came ready to, play."
The final score echoed
these sentiments as the
Indians defeated the Pirates a
second time, 11-3.
Allowing only two runs
throughout the first two
innings of play, Pirate pitcher
Kelvin Barghausen showed
early signs of struggle. How-
ever, coach Bruglio stuck
with his pitcher, giving him
an opportunity to re-group
and possibly overcome his
shaky start. This did not
happen, as the struggling
pitcher gave up eight runs in
the bottom of the fourth.
After the game, despite
the big win by the Indians,
Bruglio stated, "our pitcher
threw well. It was really only


one bad inning."
Defensively, the Pirates
accumulated three errors,
which did not ease the pitch-
ing woes.
The Indians pitching, how-
ever, proved to be rock solid.
Led by Greg Koehler, the
Indians shut out the Pirates
through four solid innings of
play.
Koehler only began to
show weakness in the top of
the fifth, giving up a bases
loaded single to Alan
Eustruch.
Coach Faulkner decided to
replace Koehler, despite his
stellar performance with Joel
Schmehl, who closed the
game out for the Pirates. The
Pirates finished the inning
scoring two runs.
The Pirates would only
score one more run the rest
of the game.
The, entire Indian team
shined this Friday evening.
The bats at the end of the
lineup seemed to keep pace
with the bats at the top of the
order, which ultimately gave
the Indian fans a lot to cheer
about.
Port Charlotte 000 020 1-3
Venice I 011 801 0-11

Jones and Rose were also
individual winners. Jones, a
junior, won the 800 in 2:32.
Rose, a freshman, ran the
1600 in 5:47.
There were two seconds.
Korszen, a junior, ran the
3200 in 12:24. Freshman Sa-
mantha Seeley was second
in the discus.
Thirds were earned by

Partin wins Sarasota Seniors by six shots


The Sarasota Senior Men's
Championship was held at
Bobby Jones Golf Complex
last weekend.
Jeff Partin ,fired a final
round 68 to take the title by
six strokes with a total of
142.
After a first round 74,
Partin tamed the wind and
the field on Sunday as he was
the only player to break par.
He overcame a three-shot
deficit to first round leaders
John Kopinski and George
Reader, who both shot 71 on
Saturday, but both were
caught in the treacherous
breezes that define the British
Course at Bobby Jones with a
78 and 79 respectively. John
Gering finished second with
a pair of 74s to finish at 148.
The first flight was won
by Neil Kopinski with a two-
day total of 153, but the flight
was very tight as five other
players finished within two
shots. Jimmy Rockow was
second with a 154, followed
by three others at 155 -
Eddie Bass, Big Bill Clement
and Bob Coffey.

BOCC votes to encourage


'green' construction


A new building program will provide incentives
for both public and private projects to incorpo-
rate more environmentally friendly features.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

For the past two years,
Sarasota County officials have
talked the talk, and walked
the walk. Now they're pre-
pared to go a bit farther on the
path to sustainability.
By unanimous vote Tues-
day, Sarasota County com-
missioners
adopted a
resolution
creating a
green build-
ing program
for both pub-
lic and pri-
vate con-
struction in
the county. Staub
Green
building practices seek to
"promote resource con-
servation, including energy
efficiency, renewable energy,
and water conservation fea-
tures; consider environmen-
tal impacts and waste mini-
mization; create a healthy
and comfortable environ-
ment; reduce operation and
maintenance costs," accord-
ing to the Web site of the U.S.
Department of Energy.
"This is so exciting," said
county commissioner Shan-
non Staub, "as we continue to
be a leader in the state and
the nation."
The new program is man-
datory for county buildings,
unless the cost outweighs the
benefits, County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley told the board.
The county has already
embarked upon a green
building program with the
recently completed renova-
tions in one office building at
Twin Lakes Park off Clark
Road.
"Kermit the Frog used to
say that 'It's tough being
green,' "said county Building


Official Paul Radauskas, "but
today it's not that hard to
build green."
Win-win
InVenice, the Venetian Golf
& River Club is already a certi-
fied green development, as is
Lakewood Ranch in North
County along the Sara-
sota/Manatee County line.
Incentives
form the basis
of the county's
green pro-
gram for the
private sector.
Those incen-
tives fto get
green build-
ings and de-
Ley velopments
include fast-
track permitting for building
permits and reduced building
permit fees up to a maximum
of $1,000.
No person or entity can
receive more than $5,000 in
permit fee refunds and the
entire program is limited to
$50,000 per year in refunds.
Staub estimated that could
result in a potential 50 new
green buildings per year in
the county.
"This is good for the coun-
ty, good for the community
and good for our industry,"
said Dickson Clements, exec-
utive vice president of the
Home Builders Association of
Sarasota County. "This is a
new way to look at construct-
ing our homes."
The new program takes
effect immediately.

IF YOU

YOU DON'T


tear down the entire house.


Let's not turn Social Security into Social Insecurity. Yes, the
program is in need of reform, which can be done with a
few moderate changes, but it is not in need of a radical
overhaul. Creating private accounts that take money out
of Social Security is an extreme measure that will hurt all
generations and could add up to two trillion dollars in more
debt. Let's not stick our kids with the bill. Call your legislators
at 1-800-307-8525 and urge them to oppose private


accounts that put Social Security at risk. H. i"

OUR VIEW



Gridlock the result of a bridge too often


T he verdict is in on the impact of the U.S.
41 road and bridge project: It's very nice,
but it isn't helping the traffic situation
much.
We had high hopes when work began
three years ago that adding two lanes and ele-
vating the Hatchett Creek Bridge would
greatly ease the traffic congestion that clogs
our roads like vehicular cholesterol. There's
no way to know what it would be like if the
work hadn't been done, but it's safe to say
things aren't as good as advertised.
That's true for a number of reasons. There
are more cars on the road, of course, and the
driving skills and physical abilities of some
drivers are questionable at best.
Traffic signals still aren't synchronized,
and the lack of left-turn lights at some inter-
sections should be addressed.
Enforcement of traffic regulations is still


lax, encouraging motorists to block intersec-
tions with impunity. We've even seen a VPD
patrol car worming its way -through cars
stopped in the middle of an intersection,
apparently without thought of at least clear-
ing it if not actually writing a few tickets.
And then there are the bridges.
If the Hatchett Creek Bridge, the Venice
Avenue Bridge and the Circus Bridge (now
there's an apt name) aren't the major culprits
in keeping traffic from moving smoothly on
and off the island, they're certainly acces-
sories before and after the fact.
Everything flows or doesn't flow- from
the bridges. When' they go up, the roads
become a parking lot. When they come
down, it's like a stampede of snails. And
when they're supposed to come down but
don't well, we don't like to think about that.
When there's an accident on 1-75, things


aren't even that good.
Clearly something needs to be done to
lessen the effect the bridges have on traffic.
Since the radical solution dynamite isn't
available, perhaps we could return to the old
way of doing things.
Once upon a time the Hatchett Creek and
(then) South bridges opened on a schedule. If
you wanted to pass, you either timed your
arrival for the opening of the bridge or you
waited.
That method fell by the wayside when the
roadwork started; the bridges now open on
demand. But the powers that be should bring
it back, and this time include the Venice
Avenue Bridge. We think every 20 minutes or
half hour would be a good schedule.
The city's jurisdiction over the bridges is
limited, so this isn't just a matter of council
voting or the city manager issuing an order.


We certainly would expect them to be in the
vanguard of the 'effort to accomplish it,
though. Requests from them get a lot more
attention than editorials.
And we're not asking for special treatment.
Scheduled openings were the rule here for
some time and still are elsewhere. They give
motorists as well as boaters some certainty
about when passage is and isn't possible.
It might take a while, and it might take
some effort maybe even some law or poli-
cy changes but it needs to happen before
things get any worse.
The lack of any logic in allowing a single
pleasure boater to hold dozens of motorists
hostage should be apparent to anyone.
And if any public officials disagree, we can
round them up and let them sit in traffic in
July, with no air conditioning until they
change their minds.


Where did all the kids go?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

This year there are 10 ma-
jor league Little League teams
(ages 9-12) in Venice, or about
120 kids. There are also seven
minor league teams with
another 80 or so kids. Al-
together we have just more
'than 200 kids in the tradition-
al younger-age Little League
programs. This does not in-
clude an 8-year-old and
under T-ball-type program.
Why is that significant?
'Well, back in the Little
League's heyday in Venice -
around 1990 the same age
groups had 30 teams repre-
senting more than 350 kids.
So with an increase in popu-
lation, what is happening to
all the kids? Why aren't they
joining the programs?
First of all, there is another
baseball program called AAU
that is a traveling team of the
more talented kids. Tradition-
ally the two coexisted, with
the AAU program on Sunday
and Little League during the
week with some games on
Saturday. AAU has expanded
and now some kids choose
just to do AAU, but not a large
number.
The problem is one other
youth sports have encoun-
tered: Kids play inside their
homes with Nintendos and
Xboxes. They watch TV and in
general stay inactive.
Some say another reason is
there are a lot of single-parent
homes. While that is as true as
it has ever been, that is not a
major reason.
I remember one team I had
in the 80s that had two par-
ents in jail, and one who cpm-
mitted suicide, all in the same
year. Broken or messed-up
homes were not unusual dur-
ing the best days of Little
League.
The problem is not with
the hard-working people who
run the programs. They do a
great job. Yet they have not
had time to focus on how to
overcome the problem.
The problem really is an
affirmation of the expensive
study Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice did last
year that showed in our coun-
ty people are pulling away
from the social or neighbor-
hood settings. They are less
engaged in group events and
spend more time alone at,
home. A lot has to do with the
TV, Internet and technology.
This also is likely to be a
reason that our children of
today are generally more
obese than any previous gen-
eration. We all may have
played outside, maybe a


game ofwiffle ball, or just rid-
ing bikes; now there is less
and less of this.
It hasn't helped any that
schools have reduced PE and
recreation time. That those
activities' don't get children
any closer to passing the
FCAT might be one reason.
The other is, when financial
cuts come, this area gets cut
first.
The foundation has shown
a willingness to try to reverse
the trend. It is time for the
youth soccer, football and
baseball programs of our
community to sit in a brain-
storming session and think of
new ways to engage the kids.
Maybe the foundation can be
a convener of a summit on
the problem. It did this once
before on a different topic in
the late 90s.
The answer may be in rule
changes that allow every child
to play more instead of letting
coaches only play a child two
innings in baseball or just a
few plays in football.
Maybe it is lowering the
cost. Maybe it is playing some
games off the island (for base-
ball), more convenient to
where kids live.
Maybe we need to pick
kids up. I remember that is
how one of my kids without a
parent played. Maybe we
need more scholarships for
those who can't afford the
entry fees.
It is a tough, uphill battle,
but one worth waging and
one I hope the youth pro-
grams take on.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Poppies remind of war s cost


Editor:
On behalf of the members of the American Legion Auxiliary
No-Vel Unit 159, we want to thank the public for contributing
to our poppy program. '
These memorial poppies were made by veterans at Bay
Pines VA Medical Center in St. Petersburg, and this program
provides physical and psychological therapy for the veterans.
The poppy is an emblem of sacrifice to remindAmericans of,
the price of war the lives of millions of men and women.
Poppy Days each year gives the public an opportunity to pay
tribute to these veterans and also honor those Veterans who
have willingly served their country.
The money contributed will be devoted to assisting the vet-
erans and members' of their families. Members of the auxiliary
travel to the Bay Pines and Tampa VA facilities and also to the
veterans home in Pbrt Charlotte during the year and sponsor
cookouts and bingo parties.
Veterans at these facilities also are given afghans, lap robes
and kit bags with various toilet. articles, playing and greeting
cards, postage stamps and coupon books.
The members of the auxiliary believe there is no better way
to say thank you than to proudly wear a poppy as a reminder
we will always remember our veterans.

Flexibility? No, taxes
Editor:
Your March 11 article Eye
on the Legislature caught my
eye, and I did a double-take at
the subtitle, School board
pushes for flexibility.
Having a good impression
of Greg Giles, I read all of the
58 column inches to see what
"flexibility" means. It seems
that the school board and
their support group, Citizens
for Better Schools, should say,
"School board pushes for
more taxes."
We need better education.

Enough noise for awhile
Editor:
The people living near the


Hatchett Creek Bridge going
into Venice need a break..
Fisherman's Wharf has
now started construction on a
large-scale project. As of now
the city ordinance for con-
struction starts at 6 a.m. and
ends at 9 p.m. When the
county built the new bridge,
construction started at 7 a.m.
and went until 5:30 p.m.
The people deserve the
same consideration from the
city as they got from the
county. No one should have
to hear noise 10 or more
hours in a day.
I. urge the people in Venice
to contact their council mem-
bers to change the ordinance
as it stands right now.
Many parts of the city are
now or will be affected by this
ordinance, so all people
would benefit from a noise
reduction issue.

Here's your tip, waiter


Some tips. I'd like to respond to a letter that was in your
paper about being tight with tips. He says he's been in the
restaurant for many years and works in a very successful
restaurant here where he's paid only $2 an hour. Why did you
take that job that does not even pay minimum wage and
expect us to make up the difference? I give tips but I think they
should do away with them altogether. As a retired senior, I
worked all my life not where I got tips, but where I got a decent
salary and raises. Wages years ago were not what they are now,
and a good restaurant meal did not cost what it does now.
Some seniors cannot afford to eat out often. When they do,
they should be entitled to a good meal and good service even
without a tip. All employers should pay employees what they
are worth. You should direct your irritation at your employer. It
is not us, but your boss' low salary telling you what kind of ser-
vice he expects from you. If that is not true, I suggest you get a
job where you're paid a decent wage before tips.


Overkill. I would like the
Venice Gondolier Sun to go
back to two days a week
rather than three days a week.
I feel right now it is overkill.
A bargain. I really like get-
ting the newspaper three
times a week, but I did notice
the price going up. It's still a
pretty good bargain.,
EDITOR'S NOTE: We did have a
small price increase before going
to three days a week, but that
reflected the rising cost of
newsprint, not additional expense
because of the extra day.
Art critic. If this is an attack,
excuse me, but your cartoon-
ist, if he's a third-grader, I'm
giving him a thumb's up. But if
these are adults, give me a
break.
Flipped off. I deeply resent
people giving a flip answer
about the airport. I have lived
in Venice for 40 years and
when we built our house the
airport was just a parking lot
for small single-engine planes
used by amateur pilots. There
were no corporate jets or
pleasure jets flying in at all
hours of the day or night. It
has only been in recent years
that we have let the airport
become what it is today and
certainly not for the better-
mient of Venice. If the airport
is? making so much money,
why can't it afford full-time
security people to monitor
what is coming in and going
out on all these jets every day
and night? My house was
built long before the powers
that be let this airport become
the habit it is becoming. If
people want to come down to
this area, let them use the
Sarasota of Fort Myers airport;
that is what they were built for
and why millions of dollars
were spent rebuilding them.
Also, has anyone noticed the
growing Hispanic population
that has moved into the area
who is building houses, re-
pairing roofs, doing landscap-
ing? Where did these people
come from in such a short
period of time? With all these
planes coming 'and going
without any security, has
there been any boom in ille-
gals coming into this area? I
don't begrudge anyone wanti-
ng to come to this country,
and Venice in particular, but
how did they get here, and are
they legal or otherwise? Can
we put some of this blame on
the airport not doing any
security work?
Not puzzled. I like getting it
three more times a week, but I
would like to see more puz-
zles, like the Jumble, word
search and the cryptogram. I
think that would make a nice
addition to your paper.
To 'Defined.' The definition
of a selfish, inconsiderate jerk
is someone who thinks it's OK
to fly noisy planes over their
neighbors' houses at all hours
of the day and night.
Boo ACLU. Citizens need to
know more as to how the
American Civil Liberties Un-
ion operates. Why is the ACLU
fighting to keep the military
from sponsoring our one
honorable organization, the
Boy Scouts? Again in 2000
they filed a suit to remove a
cross from the Mojave Desert
Veterans Memorial. The gen-
eral public does not know that
under the Civil Rights Act, 42
U.S. Code Section 1988 allows
attorney fees in awards recov-
ered. Thus the ACLU profits
from all this litigation. In the
Mojave Desert case it received
$42,000. They reaped
$500,000 from the city of San


Diego to keep Boy Scouts out
of Balboa Park. They received
$500,000 to drive the Ten
Commandments out of the
courthouse of Judge Roy
Moore in Alabama. Portland
public schools were ordered
to pay $108,000 to the ACLU
when an atheist objected to
the Boy Scouts being allowed
to recruit during nonclass
time.
It goes on and on, and in
the case of the Mojave Desert
cross the legal principle ap-
plies to the 9,000 crosses and
stars of David in Normandy,
France. Write your congress-
man to support American Le-
gion resolution 326 to reform
the code to take the profit out
of tetroristic litigation. The
next time you use an attorney,
ask if he or she is a member of


the ACLU. Ifhe or she is, go
somewhere else.
Theaterless. I live in Venice
and I'd really like to know why
they didn't they build another
movie theater for the people
in Venice to go to? You go to
the Sarasota Square Mall and
the line is a mnile long and
there's just no other place to
go unless you go all the way
up to Hollywood 20 or Port
Charlotte.

If the shoe fits. This is

sounds like a very hateful per-
son to me; that's something
God wouldn't want. It's God's

nition of sodomy is any form
of sexual intercourse other
than to procreate children to
pass on the religion. How
many heterosexual couples
do that?
I guess there are a lot of
heterosexual couples that are
sodomists also. This person
needs to stop hating and stop
judging.

LI IK I S from page 15A
and President Kennedy did
not share the values of the lib-
erals in the Democratic Party
of today.
In April 2004, Genate Dem-
ocrats, while taking the black
vote for granted, blocked ex-
tension of welfare reform,
demonstrating their soft big-
otry of low expectations and
social promotion policies that
keep blacks in poverty.
The Democratic Party's
current policies on taxes and
national security put our na-
tion in danger and are con-
trary to Democratic President
Kennedy's beliefs on those
issues.
Although Kennedy was on
the wrong side of civil rights,
since he voted against the


1957 Civil Rights Act and op-
posed Dr. King's 1963 march
on Washington, he cut taxes
to grow our economy and
spent money to strengthen
national defense. Liberal'
Democrats today are pro tax
increases, soft on national
defense and on the wrong
side of cultural issues, favor-
ing partial-birth abortions,
gay marriage and banning
God from the public square.
President Kennedy would
not recognize the Democratic
Party of today, and Dr. King
would shake his head over the
irony of being honored by lib-
erals who do not share his cul-
tural values, and whose poli-
cies keep blacks in poverty.

Diversionary possibility
Editor:
To correct the nightmare at
Venice Avenue and Business 41
the city should stop cars that
are going north on Business 41
from crossing Venice Avenue
and instead divert them to East
Miami Avenue and U.S. 41
North via the underpass on
American LegionWay.
The city could try this sim-
ply by posting signs and
changing the timing of the
light. A real test would be to
try this before the snowbirds
go home.
I realize that the two comers
on American Legion Way are
too sharp now, but maybe that
could be fixed this summer.

from one to three millimeters. When the attachment of the gum to the
tooth is damaged and the sulcus extends beyond three millimeters, a
pathological periodontal pocket has formed.
There is nothing exact about three millimeters. A shallower pocket may
be infected by bacteria, while a deeper pocket could be due to a
gingivitis with out attachment damage. In some areas, five to six
millimeters is normal because of natural gum contours. In general,
pocket depths of one to three millimeters are normal. If probing
induces bleeding it indicates the pocket is inflamed and unhealthy.
True periodontal pockets must be distinguished from ones that result
from enlargement of the gum tissue. This problem is primarily esthetic,
with treatment geared to reduction of the excess tissue.

Gerack's sentence reduced by half


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


A former Venice woman
sentenced to 15 years for DUI
manslaughter has had her
sentence cut in half.
'Amanda hasn't learned a
thing," a family member said.
"She was still drinking and
driving while she was waiting
for the trial."
A woman in the court
clerk's office confirmed that
Manatee County Circuit
Judge Marc A. Gilner resen-
tenced Gerack to 90 months
(7.5 years) on Jan. 20, with
credit for time served.
On Nov. 7, 2001, Gerack
went the wrong way on In-
terstate 75 and killed a wom-
an passenger in the car she hit
head on. She had been drink-
ing heavily before the acci-
dent.
The family member also
said Gerack has used drugs
for years and her drug of
choice was Ecstasy, a hard-
core designer drug.
"She had a baby in prison
that was deformed because of
all the drugs she did," the fami-
ly member said. "The only rea-
son she got pregnant before
she went to jail is so the judge
and prison officials would have
sympathy for her."
The family member said a
letter sent to the judge by the
dead woman's husband may

with Gerack's sentence reduc-

She said she did not know
exactly what was in the letter.
The husband could not be
reached for comment.
Maybe five years
Florida Department of
Corrections spokesman Ster-
ling Ivey said Gerack's new
scheduled release date is May
15, 2010.
"If she follows the rules,
doesn't have any disciplinary
problems, she could get out
earlier," Ivey said. "She has to
serve 85 percent of her time,
so that would mean a release
date of Oct. 8, 2009. So if she
behaves herself, she could
shave seven months off the
new scheduled release date."
Gerack began serving her
original sentence in May
2003. She is presently incar-
cerated at the Lowell Cor-
rectional Institution for wom-
en, near Ocala.
In addition, Gerack will be
on five years probation, and
must stay away from alcohol
and drugs, the woman said.
Gilner's original sentence
in May 2003 was 15.77 years,
four years probation, a fine,
restitution to the victims, and
revocation of her driver li-
cense for life. The woman in
the clerk's office said the life-
time revocation is still in

wins awards

A (^ STAFF REPORT
ick Bonsky, president of Masterpiece
Custom Homes is pleased with the
decision he made two years ago to
base his company in North Port.
Masterpiece Custom Homes range from the low
$200,000s to the high $400,000s. They attract a variety
of buyers, especially those- seeking a change from a
typical production home.
Masterpiece Custom Homes swept all six awards in
their price category in the 2005 Home Builders Associ-
ation of NManatee and Sarasota counties "Parade of
Homes" for their Marabella model.
They won Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, Best
Architectural Detail, Best Floor Plan, Best Curb Appeal
and Best Overall. This is the second consecutive year
they took home all the honors.
Their custom designs stand out due to architect and
designer Anne Parks Bonsky's innovations. Anne, a
graduate of the Ringling School of Art also functions as
vice president and is a licensed interior designer.
Her custom homes incorporate a wide variety of.
unique touches. Mosaic backsplashes, granite coun-
tertops, tapered columns, window seats in guest

The Marabella's great room
has pocket sliding glass doors
that open the house to the
lanai, an additional living area
complete with chandelier.
Meeting the homebuyer's
needs is essential to Nick and
hisostaff. This is easy, because-
hundreds of custom homes
can be created from the 15
available base floor plans.
During the design process cus-
tomers meet with an architect,
interior designer, landscaper,
pool contractor (if desired)
and a field superintendent.
The staff works hand-in-
hand with clients to ensure
delivery of the home of their
dreams.
Masterpiece Custom Homes
can truly say that they are a
,family business. In addition to
Nick, who serves as contractor
,and compariy president, and
Anne who serves as vice presi-
dent and designer, there are
Nick's parents. Joan assists in
the sales department and Jim
in the purchasing of land.
Marge Kopp, Nick's grand-
mother creates window treat-
ments for the homes.
Nick and Anne feel their
attention to detail, meeting
clients' needs and the quality
of home they build set them
apart from the average builder.
"We give one-on-one atten-
tion to our clients. We're acces-
sible. It is worth a trip to come
and see us."

Birthday club

Carol Budnik wants every-
one to help celebrate her golf
buddy Ev Neal's birthday. The
89-year-old Evplays golf regu-
larly and recently won the
championship in her 4th
flight at Lake Venice Golf
Club. Carol says when she
grows up she wants to golf like
Ev and score an 89.
Celebrating a milestone
birthday recently was one of
the nicest men in town, Carl
Watters: He made the an-
nouncement recently at the
Midiri Concert and joked
about getting old. When he
told us his age, Ruth Kaal,
Anne Harrison, Melba
Martin and I immediately
told him he was still a baby.
From the fairway
Capri Isles Golf Club
brought the circus to town for
their 9 hole league invitation-
al. The idea came from Clara
Minerd, vice president of the
group and Marcy Sampson
co-chair of the event. 72
golfers were greeted by
clowns, balloons and colorful
circus centerpieces.
9 hole clubs from Water-
ford, Calusa Lakes, Heron
Creek, Rotonda, Stoneybrook,
Myakka Pines, Lake Venice,
Jacaranda West, Pelican Point,
Mission Valley and Plantation
Golf & Country Club partici-
pated in the event.
Everyone agreed the day
was better than a three-ring
circus.

They recently welcomed little
Emily Nikkole to their family.
The baby is beautiful and
healthy and will probably be
sitting on the 50-yard-line
next football season with the
rest of her family. Emily's dad,
Nick, is the head coach for the
Venice Indians varsity football
team and Nikki is the science
teacher at Venice Elementary
School. Welcome baby Emily.
A girl's best friend
One of the great things
about the Lovelanders jewelry
sale is it gives everyone in
Venice a chance to buy dia-
mond earrings for just 50 cents.
What a deal. Mary Lou Troy,
Mary Meaney, Terry Feath-
erston, Margot Foglietta, Carol
Budnik, chair Joseph Dittman
and the rest of the committee
deserve a pat on the back for a
job well done.
Kudos to Elaine Cyr who
comes down from Rhode
Island each year with tons of
new jewelry for the sale.

Hospice: Offering choices





for 25 years
f o ,..* ." .;l;li" "!'^:' **,


BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER


Driving east on Clark Road
toward Interstate 75 you ex-
pect the normal concrete and
pavement covered scenery.
Perhaps a fast food restau-
rant and a traffic light or two,
but take a right hand turn
down Rand Boulevard and
you end up somewhere en-
tirely different. The tree-
canopied road winds you
away from the pedestrian
details of life until you find
Hospice of Southwest Florida.
Most people probably
dorfn't even know of its exis-
tence, but it has existed, not
exactly in that spot, for 25
years. Stella Grant has been
with the Hospice since the
very beginning.
"It has been quite a jour-
ney," she said. "Back then we
didn't have the body knowl-
edge that we have now and
the concept of a hospice here
was not the same as in other
countries."
Grant was the first nurse
hired at Hospice in 1980. For a
long time she was literally the


only employee for Hospice,
assuming duties other than
nursing. Her husband was
both a firefighter and an EMT,
so being on call at all times of
the day was a challenge.
"For a year and a half I was
on call 24 hours a day seven
days a week," she said. "I used
to bundle up the kids in the
car and go."
One sleepy headed daugh-
ter didn't even remember
those trips at night because
she was too drowsy to know.
What a difference 25 years
can make. Hospice now has
more than 450 employees
and enough. nurses to serve
the more than 800 patients of
Hospice. Most of its growth
was made possible by the
community through both
funding and volunteering.
Hospice houses can be found
throughout Sarasota and
neighboring counties includ-,
ing one inVenice.
Grant is now a clinical edu-
cator of nurses at the organi-
zation. She values the lessons
she learns from her patients
the most.
"You always remember


your first patient the most,"
Grant said. "A patient once
told me to always enjoy the
flowers and the rainbows
because you never know
when you won't get to any
longer."
Hospice first started at
Sarasota Memorial Hospital
and served only Sarasota
County. It was started on the
philosophy that dying people
had a choice not to live out
their days bed-ridden or stuck
indoors. Grant says the orga-
nization grew because people
became more aware of its
possibilities.
Hospice is designed for
people diagnosed with a life-
ending disease or illness with
six months left to live. This
includes children and the
elderly.
There are many things that
set Hospice apart from hospi-
tals. First is the location,
which is chosen for peaceful
surroundings. It's that atten-
tion to detail that makes.
patients more comfortable.
It's also a nice place for
employees and volunteers to
come to.
The possibilities Hospice
makes possible are what sets
it apart from a regular hospi-
tal. The biggest difference is
that the staff of Hospice is
there to listen to what the
patient needs. The patient
can dictate their own needs
and, most of the time, have
them fulfilled.
"There was one man who
always went to the beach
everyday," Grant said. "When
he came here it was hard for
him to do that, but the nurses
were able' to describe to the
doctor what he needed to be
comfortable. He was able to
go to the beach with the help
of volunteers."
Fulfillment also extends to
the spiritual beyond the phys-
ical being of a patient.
Whether that be through
mending a broken relation-
ship or making peace for that
individual through walks' on
the beach.
Hospice views itself as a


asota's Hospice is located on Rand Boulevard.


Stella Grant is a clinical educator of other nurses at Hospice of
Southwest Florida. She has been with Hospice since the begin-
ning, 25 years ago.


The atmosphere at Hospice makes it a pleasant place for loved

Philip Pasho, E.D., The Dyslexia Foundation, Drayton Saunders,
trustee, The Dyslexia Foundation, and Frank B. Wood Ph.D.,
chair, The Dyslexia Foundation --- Scientific Advisory Board.


The Dyslexia Foundation
(TDF), a nonprofit corpora-.
tion dedicated to addressing
literacy and reading for chil-
dren, is very pleased to an-
nounce the receipt of two
generous grants from The
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County, a charitable
organization created to ben-
efit the citizens of Sarasota.
The first grant of $10,000
from the Kathleen K. Catlin
Fund of the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County, was soon followed
by an additional grant of
$25,000 from the Walter
Haskins Fund in memory of
Stacey K. Haskins, Robert E.
and Lynn Cook Fund and the
Kathleen B. Pierce Fund of
the Community Foundation


of Sarasota County. Both
grants will be utilized to help
fund TDF's AmericaYesRead!
program in the Sarasota
County District School Sys-
tem.
The AmericaYesRead! pro-
gram embodies a compre-
hensive approach to the
awareness, identification and
proper instruction with re-
gards to children with dys-
lexia, with the underlying
goal of promoting productive
literacy in all children. Par-
ents, teachers and school
administrators all take an
active part in the founda-
tion's programs with ongoing
instruction and guidance
from TDF's expert panel of
professors and scientists.
"We are pleased to help


such a worthwhile cause, and
hope that through assistance
such as ours, The Dyslexia
Foundation will continue to
make a positive impact on
the future of our children,"
stated Wendy Hopkins, vice
president 'of Grants & Pro-
gram Services, The Commun-
ity Foundation of Sarasota
County. "We can think of no
better legacy for our founda-
tion than helping educate
the youth of America."
Dedicated to the creation
of permanent charitable
funds that have lasting im-
pact, The Community Foun-
dation was created to encour-
age philanthropic individuals
to leave a charitable legacy
to the citizens of Sarasota
County.

The Dyslexia Foundation
focuses its outreach and edu-
cational efforts in several key
areas: continued develop-
ment and refinement of the
TDF's services and programs
through ongoing research,
recognizing young research-
ers who have contributed to
the field of dyslexia and
adding that knowledge to
our own, recognizing individ-
uals who have increased
society's dyslexia awareness
and asking for their assis-
tance with our efforts, the
establishment of a dyslexia
center or institute in every
state in the country, and
sponsoring professional con-
ferences and symposiums as
a forum to exchange ideas
and research.

Tips for improving



indoor air quality


STAFF REPORT


Indoor air pollutants can
have significant and damag-
ing effects on your health,
including long-term issues,
such as lung disease, lung
cancer, asthma and respira-
tory tract infections.
In addition, indoor pollu-
tants can cause headaches,
nausea and lethargy. And
while most people are aware
of outdoor pollution car
exhaust, smog, etc. expo-
sure to air pollutants such
as dust, fragrances, mold,
pollen, pet dander and
smoke can be up to 100 times
higher indoors.
Today many newer homes
are well-insulated and sealed
to conserve energy, which
means airborne pollutants
have no way to escape, 'fur-
ther lowering the quality of
fresh air inside the home. On
the other hand, older homes
can be drafty or have leaks,
which can affect the level of
humidity in your home, as
well as promote the growth
of mold and mildew.
Following are some exam-
ples of easy steps to help
improve the indoor air qual-
ity in your home no matter
where you live.
Dust and biological
contaminants:
- Use a vacuum cleaner with
strong suction, and a rotating
beater brush to loosen
ground-in dirt. Two-ply bags
with HEPA filters ensure the
dirt stays in the bag.
- Install hard surface cover-
ings on floors, windows and
furniture they help repel
dust.
- Avoid pets inside your
home. If you wish to keep a
pet indoors make sure it is
groomed often and keep
them away from carpets, fur-
niture and beds.
- Use hypoallergenic dust
covers on your mattress and
pillows to deter dust mites
and other biological contami-
nants.
Odors, fumes and gases:
- Keep interior doors leading
directly into the garage
closed. Leave the garage door
open at least 5 minutes after
a car enters or leaves the
garage.

- Extinguish all burning
embers in your fireplace
before shutting the flue.
- Leave the door open to
any room that does not have
a return vent.
- Use non-toxic cleaning
products. Keep them sealed
and store them away from
high traffic areas in your
home.
- Eliminate tobacco smoke
in the home.
- Install and use exhaust
fans in the kitchen and bath-
rooms.
Humidity in your home:
- Check yourthome for leaks
near windows, doors, attic
accesses and dryer vents.
- Ensure your ductwork is
inspected and cleaned, by a
professional.
- Reduce static electricity in
your home by installing a
humidifier.
- Maintain relative humid-ity
in the 35 to 50 percent range.
Over 50 percent can promote
mold and other bacterial
growths. Below 35 percent can
cause sore throats, sinus con-
gestion, skin disorders, warps
in wooden furniture and
floors, separation in wood
floors, and gaps in molding.
- If you live in a warmer,
humid climate, be certain
your air conditioning equip-
ment is sized properly and
ensure it's in good working
order for the best dehumidifi-
cation. (If no air conditioning
system is present, a dehumid-
ifier can be a good option to
maintain proper humidity in
your home.) In colder cli-
mates, a humidifier may be
used to increase humidity
levels as needed.
- Have a precision tune-up
performed on your heating
and cooling system twice
each year for maximum effi-
ciency, comfort and safety.

M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist

Q. Why should someone with
hearing loss seek an
audiologist?
A. Audiologists have
completed graduate school and
have obtained a Masters or
Doctoral degree from an
accredited university. Their
diploma means they have
completed extensive training in
the areas of prevention,
diagnosis and non-medical
treatments of hearing disorders.
They have been trained to use
the most advanced compu-
terized procedures and state-of-
the-art instruments to precisely
program each hearing device so
that the patient receives
optimum benefit from their
amplification. After completing
their graduate degree, each
Audiologist must complete a
one-year, full-time internship
and pass a demanding national
competency examination. It is
important to know that the state
of Florida allows persons
without an Audiology degree
to dispense hearing aids. For
this reason, it is up to you to
ask your hearing care provider
if they hold a degree in
Audiology and it is up to you
to schedule a hearing test with
an Audiologist before
purchasing amplification. If
you need further information
about hearing loss, hearing aids
and the role Audiologists play,
call Woodmere Hearing and
Balance Centers, Inc. at 492-
4327 today.

Finding safe alternatives to sugar


FROM THE EDITORS OF E/THE
ENVIRONMENTAL MAGAZINE
GUEST COLUMN

Dear EarthTalk: Are there
any healthy alternatives to
sugar? Andrew Young, New
York, N.Y.
Perhaps since the diet
crazes of the 1970s, Amer-
icans have been looking to
cut back on their intake of
sugar. And doctors couldn't
be happier, as they consider
the prevalence of sugar in
our society a root cause of
numerous health problems,
including the recent trends
in obesity and adult onset
diabetes.
By far the most commonly
used sugar alternative today
is aspartame. Most diet sodas
contain aspartame, and it is
the main ingredient in artifi-
cial sweeteners Equal and
Nutrasweet, among others.
But aspartame itself has been
linked to a host of health
problems, including
Parkinson's disease, anxiety
attacks, depression and brain
tumors. A recent report by
the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services
listed 90 documented symp-
toms associated with aspar-
tame exposure. And accord-
ing to the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA),
aspartame accounts for 75
percent of reported adverse
reactions to food additives.
Honey, another popular
sugar substitute, contains vit-
amins C, D, E and B-com-
plex, as well as traces of
amino acids, enzymes and
minerals. However up to 50
percent of these nutrients
are lost, unfortunately, when
honey is commercially
processed. Also, honey is
high in calories and is
absorbed by the body in


much the same way sugar is,
so it's not good a good choice
if you are diabetic.
Luckily for those with
cravings for sweets, several
healthy alternatives to sugar
do exist and can be found at
most natural foods markets
if not in mainstream super-
markets which increasingly
have natural foods sections.
For a taste similar to honey
with fewer calories, agave
nectar made from the
Mexican agave plant is a
good choice. Agave nectar is
a fruit sugar, which absorbs
more slowly into the blood-
stream and is suitable for
diabetics. It has a light, mild
flavor with a thinner consis-
tency than honey. One
organic brand is Colibree.
Another comes from Sweet
Cactus Farms and can be
ordered from their Web site
online.
For baking, date sugar is a '
good alternative to conven-
tional sugar. Actually consist- .
ing of finely ground dates, it
contains all the fruit's nutri-
ents and minerals. Date
sugar isn't highly processed,
and it can be used cup-for-
cup as a replacement for
white sugar. Also good for
baking is xylitol, which
sounds like a chemical but is
actually birch sugar. Unlike
conventional sugar, xylitol is
actually reported to fight
tooth decay, and has fewer
calories. Both date sugar and
xylitol are suitable for diabet-
ics and others who are sugar
sensitive.
Another sugar alternative
- and one that has grown in
popularity in recent years -
is stevia, which comes from
the stevia leaf in Paraguay. It
is about 300 times as sweet
as sugar, but has no calories.
The FDA considers stevia a


dietary supplement, because
in its unprocessed form it is
very nutritious, containing
such vitamins as magne-
sium, niacin, potassium and
vitamin C. But Japanese
drink manufacturers have
been using stevia as a sweet-
ener for more than 30 years.
Because stevia is so concen-
trated, it is best used as an
additive to drinks, cereals or
yogurts, and not for baking,
as it doesn't have enough
bulk.

Dear EarthTalk: What is
"geothermal" heating and cool-
ing, and how is it environmen-
tally friendly? John Moran,
Cranston, R.I.
Geothermal (sometimes
called "geoexchange") heat-
ing and cooling is a technolo-
gy that relies primarily on the
Earth's natural thermal ener-
gy, a renewable resource, to
heat or cool a house.
In winter or in colder
climates, the Earth's natural
heat is collected through a
series of pipes, called a loop,
installed underground or
sometimes in a pond or lake.
Water circulating in the loop
carries the heat to the home
where an indoor system
using compressors and heat
exchangers concentrates the
Earth's energy and releases it
inside the home at a higher
temperature. In a typical sys-
tem, duct fans distribute the
heat to various rooms. These
systems can also provide all
or part of a household's hot
water, according to the
Geothermal Heat Pump
Consortium, a trade organi-
zation.
In summer or in warmer
climates, the process is
reversed in order to cool the

Fire season begins



in Southwest Florida


Southwest Florida is now
entering "the fire season." You
might not see this on the cal-
endar, but in the park, we
know it's coming by the ani-
mals' behavior. Songbirds
and warblers are passing
through, migrating north.
Gopher tortoises are cleaning
out their burrows, piling up
white sand creating an apron
at the front of their homes;
"putting out the welcome
mat" to small rodents, rep-
tiles, insects, and amphibians
to seek refuge from the flames
that may come. Scrub jays are
already in the middle of their
nesting cycle, working hard to
get their newborn fledglings
fed, and out of the nest,
before the flames appear. In
South Florida, springtime
brings the storms; the begin-
ning of the lightning season,
and sometimes rain, but
sometimes not.
Like clockwork, life in the
forest begins again.
Florida has many fire-


dependent communities
with fire-adapted species, our
landscape evolved with fire,
not in spite of it. We have
been working hard to prepare
the park for our "fire season."
Many zones are scheduled
to be burned for a healthy
habitat. Park boundaries,
interior fire breaks, service
roads and other zones are
being prepped to assist us in
containment of resource
management fires, or those
that start naturally. Fire is a
valuable tool most land man-
agers use to effect habitat'
rehabilitation and mainte-
nance.
At Oscar Scherer State Park
we will be applying fire to
many areas around the park
to maintain healthy and safe
environments. A much short-
er way to say this is, "we will
use fire to continue what
nature had intended."
"Prescribed burning," is a
topic and a process, you'll be
hearing quite a bit about in
the next few months. So if you
see smoke, please, under-
stand it has a purpose.
We utilize the wonderful
hiking trail system for our
firebreaks, so at different
times, different portions of
the trails may be disked to
prevent our fire spreading.
You can see the tapestry of the
different areas, burned at dif-
ferent times, as you hike or
bike in Oscar Scherer State
Park. Of course, for your safe-
ty, when a fire is active some
trails may be closed briefly,
but come out soon after to see
the dramatic changes going


on within the habitats.
How do we go about burn-
ing? Resource management is
a science; we rely on the
expertise of the district biolo-,
gists and Bureau of Natural
and Cultural Resources in
Tallahassee, combined with
the professionalism and ex-
perience of our park staff.
The burn is predetermined
with prescriptions written
and plans made well ahead
of time. Our equipment is
maintained to be ready at a
moment's notice, thanks to
the Friends of Oscar Scherer
Park Inc., whose donations
continue the support from
our local community. Our
staff is supplemented with
the volunteers of Ameri-
Corps, another great group.

JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
A friend of mine and I were
out shopping a few weeks ago
and suddenly she had a really
bad headache and felt sick to
her stomach. She acted like it
was no big deal and thought it
would go away if we just went
home. Instead, I drove her to the
hospital. When we got there,
she was starting to feel a little
better but we learned later that
she had a mini-stroke. My ques-
tion is, what exactly is a mini-
stroke, how can you tell if you're
having one and what do you do
if you think you're having one?
-Minnie
Dear Minnie,
According to The
American Heart Association,
around 700,000 Americans
will have a stroke this year, so
you did the right thing by
taking your friend to the hos-
pital. Mini-strokes, which are
also known as transient
ischemic attacks (TIAs),
occur when the blood supply
to part of the brain is briefly
interrupted. Here's what you
should know.
Trdcky strokes
Mini-strokes are tricky be-
cause the symptoms can be
subtle and they don't leave


any lasting or permanent
damage. Like a stroke, they
occur suddenly and usually
last less than an hour, but
can persist up to 24 hours.
Mini-stroke symptoms can
include:
Numbness or weakness in
the face, arm or leg, particu-
larly on one side of the body.
Confusion or difficulty
talking or understanding
what people are saying.
Trouble seeing in one or
both eyes.
Difficulty walking.
Dizziness.
Loss of balance and coor-
dination.
A sudden, severe head-
ache.
Sudden nausea, fever or
vomiting that develops more
quickly than with a regular
illness.
Fainting or decreased con-
sciousness.
Savvy fact
People who have experi-
enced a mini-stroke are 10
times more likely to suffer a
major stroke within a year.
What to do
There's no way to tell
whether stroke symptoms
are from a mini-strokes or a
full-blown stroke, so don't
assume your symptoms will
just go away. If you are expe-
riencing stroke symptoms,
seek medical help immedi-
ately. Appropriate treatment
can reduce the risk of a
major stroke later on.
Treatment
In most cases, mini-
strokes are treated with
blood-thinning medications
that help prevent clots.


Aspirin is a common treat-
ment for patients at risk for
stroke. People who have a
heartbeat abnormality called
atrial fibrillation may be pre-
scribed an anticoagulant pre-
scription medication.
Stroke prevention
Strokes are the third lead-
ing cause of death in the
United States and the No. 1
cause of disability. People
who are at high risk for mini-
strokes and strokes are elder-
ly, 65 years and older,
Hispanics and African-
Americans. Here are some
things you can do to help
lower your risk for a stroke:
If you smoke, stop.
Keep tabs on your blood
pressure and keep it under
control (below 140/90).
If you suffer from dia-
betes, keep your blood sugar
under control and have it
checked frequently.
Exercise regularly.
Eat a healthy diet and limit
your intake of cholesterol and
fat, especially saturated fats.
If you drink, limit your
consumption to no more
than one to two drinks per
day.

Holiday blues
Dear Savvy Senior,
The holidays are stressful
enough for everyone these
days but I am worried about my
77-year-old mom. She has
always loved getting ready for
Christmas but this year, mom
has been acting uninterested.
For the first time ever, she did
not send out Christmas cards,
nor did she want to decorate
her house like she usually does.
It seems like mom has become
very depressed and I am wor-
ried. Do you have any sugges-
tions? Unhappy Holidays
Dear Unhappy,
Many people experience
the holiday blues around
Christmas, so what you are
seeing in your mom is not
that unusual. In fact, accord-
ing to the American
Association for Geriatric
Psychiatry, the holiday sea-
son can be even more diffi-
cult for older adults because
it accentuates the passing of
time and can bring back
memories of prior
Christmases.
There are lots of factors
that can contribute to senior
blues or apathy around the
holiday season like the loss of
a spouse, sibling or a close
friend.
Some seniors feel alone
and isolated because their
grown children and grand-
children live far away. While
others may feel blue because
they don't feel good, or

If you're anywhere near my
age, did you play fox and
geese in the snow? During
school recess or at lunch
break I remember putting on
our long winter overcoats that
buttoned down the front and
four or six buckle galoshes.
(No one had the lightweight,
colorful jackets all kids wear
today.) I remember making a
circle in the snow with our
boots, and then we all stood
in a circle while the fox chased
the goose. Even my daughter-
in-law remembers playing it,
so apparently it was universal.
About that time my college
age brothers and sister played
"statue" on our front porch.
You would kind of throw a
person down on the floor
where they would strike a
pose and the rest would have
to guess who they were. I
wonder if kids today would
get a kick out of trying to
guess 50 Cent or Hillary
Swank?
I remember box socials in
the church basement. Young
ladies would prepare a supper
and decorate the box. The
young men bid on the boxes
and had the privilege of eat-
ing supper with the young
lady whose box he bought.
We played a number of


card games. My adding skills
got much better as a result of
playing dominoes. We played
the kind where you add the
ends and played on the dou-
bles, and totaled the scores in
multiples of five. With a dou-
ble nine set it became very
challenging. My friend Rollin
and I played it here at Harbor
Chase until he died and it
helped our minds stay sharp.
My mother was born in
1876 and she told of playing a
game in which the women sat
in chairs in a circle. The blind-
folded husbands had to feel
all the legs and guess which
leg was his wife's. Of course,
they probably wore woolen
skirts and leggings in those
days, but it still sounds sexy to
me! Did you ever play pass the
lemon? That is sexy.
Of course, we all played
dozens of games as children.
My favorite was marbles.
When my older brother had
time he'd draw a circle in the
dirt and we would get our
bags of marbles. I must have
taught my younger son how
to play because he has my bag
of prized marbles now. People
are always asking me if I've
lost my marbles. I can honest-
ly tell them I know where they
are!
We lived in Bird Bay 20 or
so years, and one of my fond-
est memories there was play-
ing Charades. Did you ever
feel ridiculous playing that?
I was innocent and not
very popular in school so I
never did learn to play Post
Office, but I can remember
playing spin the bottle. I still
have a game that my sister
sent me from the Philippines
many years ago. It is called

they're unable (because of
physical limitations) to per-
form their favorite tasks of
holiday preparation, like
shopping, baking, or sending
out Christmas cards.
Signs to watch
Everyone feels sad and
blue sometimes, but when
the blues linger over a period
of time it may be depression,
which is much more serious.
Recognizing depression is
not always easy, so you need
to be aware of some of the
signs, including:
Irritability.
Disinterest in previously
cherished rituals or in family
and friends.
Expresses thoughts of sui-
cide.
Sleeps more than usual.
Uses more than normal
amounts of alcohol, pain
medications or sleeping pills.
Acting confused or lost in
the midst of family affairs.
Excessive crying.
Isolation.
Loss of appetite.
How to help
While most TV commercials
emphasis kids during the
holiday season, it's good to
remember that seniors need
special attention, too. Here
are some helpful things to
consider:
Encourage family mem-
bers to be around your mom
as much as possible. If you
can't be there physically, be
sure to call a little more
often, mail cards and let her
know you are thinking about
her.
Contact her church or
other community resource
where someone maybe able
to stop by for a visit, or pick
her up for a religious service
or community activity.
Don't allow your mom to
isolate herself. If she can't be


with family, suggest she
invite some close friends
over to share the holidays.
Volunteer. Many churches
or civic groups would love
her help. Helping others is a
great way to forget your own
troubles.
Watch the finances. If your
mom is on a tight budget, be
sure she doesn't feel guilty if
she can't afford to by the
grandchildren expensive
gifts. It's not what the holi-
days should be about.
Watch the holiday spirits.
Alcohol is a depressant that
can intensify the problem.
Don't deny or avoid your
mom's feelings of sadness.
Very often just being
able to share feelings with
someone can help.
There is a big difference
between being temporarily
sad and feeling chronically
depressed. If feelings don't
lift after the holidays, talk
with your doctor.

Life insurance
Dear Savvy Senior,
I am a 73-year-old widow
and have been thinking about
dropping my life insurance poli-
cy because I really don't need it
any longer. A friend of mine
recently suggested that I sell my
policy to a life settlement com-
pany, but I don't know anything
about this. Can you tell me
about this option and if it's a
good idea? Unsettled Sam,
Dear Unsettled,
Life settlements are a
tempting offer for seniors


who no longer need their life
insurance perhaps
because their beneficiaries
have died or they can't afford
to keep up the premiums.
Here's what you should
know.

Life settlements
A life settlement is the sale
of an existing life insurance
policy to a third party com-
pany for cash. Life settle-
ments are typically best suit-
ed for seniors over age 65
with health problems.
Historically, if an owner of a
life insurance policy decided
they no longer needed the
policy, they could elect to
cancel it and receive the poli-
cy's cash surrender value
from the insurance company.
But now, with the life set-
tlement option, you can
actually sell your life insur-
ance policy for more than its
cash surrender value, but less
than its net death benefit.
Once you sell it however, the
life settlement company then
becomes the new owner of
the policy, pays the future
premiums and collects the
death benefit when you die.
Savvy note
Viatical settlements are
similar to life settlements but
are available to those who
are terminally ill with a life
expectancy of less than two
years.
How much?
How much money you
will get in your life settlement
will depend upon a number
of factors including your age,
medical condition/life
expectancy, the type of insur-
ance, the rating of the insur-
ance company, the cost of
the premiums and the value
of the policy. For example, a
70-year-old with a life
expectancy of 10 years, and a
$250,000 life insurance policy


(depending on the premium)
could get up to around
$40,000.
Consumer tips
If you're interested in a life
settlement here are some tips
to consider:
Comparison shop: Get
quotes from a broker or sev-
eral life settlement compa-
nies to make sure you have a
competitive offer, and find
out what fees or costs you
will be required to pay.
Tax implications: Life set-
tlements are usually tax-free
up to the amount you have
paid in life insurance premi-
ums during the life of the
policy. However, the balance
over that amount is taxable.
Consult your tax advisor.
Fraud protection: Life set-
tlements are not regulated in
every state, so be careful.
Make sure the life settlement
company or broker that
you're dealing with is either
licensed in your state or is a
member of the Viatical and
Life Settlement Association
of America.
Other options
If you are selling your life
insurance policy to get cash
to pay for expenses, there are
other possible options you
should consider:
Cash value: Ask your
insurance agent if you have
any cash value in your policy.
If so, you may be able to use
some of the cash value to
* meet your immediate needs
and keep your policy for your
beneficiaries. You may also
be able to use the cash value
as a security for a loan.
Accelerated benefit: Find
out if your life insurance pol-
icy has an accelerated death
benefit, which typically pays
some of the policy's death
benefit before you die.
Reduce premiums: If pay-
ing the premium has become
a burden, there are various


ways to reduce it. Ask your
insurance agent about the
possible options.

MANCALA, and the object is
to capture the other person's
shells or stones. This game
has apparently been played
for centuries. My son once
played it with an African
chief.
The one game that seems
to translate across genera-
tions is trivia. There are so
many versions that kids who
are into MTV enjoy it as much
as do we here at Harbor
Chase.
My friend Rollin made a
game out of almost every-,
thing. If we were eating at a
table he might put a knife or
pen horizontal, get a coin
from his pocket and say "let's
see who can get the coin clos-
est without touching the, knife
or pen." My grandson devel-
ops computer games. His lat-
est game sold 200,000 copies
in the first few days.
Maybe it's not what game
you play -just that you make
the time to play games.
Maybe people who can make
a game out of anything in life
are just fun to be around.
Maybe games give us laughter
and cherished memories.
Maybe that is why there are so
many.

A traveler's life list for the Upper Midwest


BY BETH GAUPER
GUEST WRITER

As if we didn't have enough
pressures in our lives, now we
have "1,000 Places to See
Before You Die."
Published last fall, it's a fat
little book listing the 'best
things to do and see around
the world rafting the Man-
goky River in Madagascar,
attending the Pushkar Camel
Fair in India, basking on the
beaches of Bora Bora.
It's a glittering list, packed
with exotic places and amaz-
ing things anyone would like
to see and do but probably
won't. The finest hotels and
restaurants are listed, too, but
I, for one, am pretty sure I
won't be staying at the Hotel
de Crillon in Paris, where
rooms start at $541, or eating
at Taillevent, where dinners
are $170.
I'll read about these places,
though, and have a fine time
doing it. Then I'll toss some
clothes in a bag and be per-
fectly happy on my orbits
around Lake Superior and the
Mississippi.
Our own back yard, while
not particularly glamorous,
contains some wonderful
places, and you actually have
* a good chance of seeing them
all in your lifetime. You'll save
a lot of money, too --,maybe
enough to go horseback rid-
ing around Ulan Bator or on a
rifer excursion through Pa-
piua, New Guinea.
1 If you need one, here's a list
of 100 best places around
here. When you're finished
with it, you'll have so many
favorites to revisit you might
not have time for that trip to
Bora Bora.
Some of the best haunts
The Btoundary Waters Ca-
noe Area Wilderness is the
only Minnesota entry in
"1,000 Places," and of course
this 1.1 million-acre wilder-
ness along Minnesota's bor-
der with Canada deserves the
honor. It's easy "to visit on a
day trip, but its solitude and
wide-open spaces are best
appreciated by campers.
The book also lists the
Apostle 'Islands National
Lakeshore on the south shore
of Lake Superior, off Wis-
consin's Bayfield Peninsula.
Kayakers have the best access
to the 21-island archipelago,
but in summer, visitors can
take launches to hiking trails
and lighthouses on many of
the islands. In winter, the ice
caves, on the mainland near
Cornucopia, accessible via
the frozen lake for a short
time in late winter, are one of
the region's most splendid
and unusual sights.
In ar northern Minnesota,
the labyrinthine waterways of
Voyageurs National Park are
full of;wildlife and history. The
inlian'd water route carried
voyageurs and Ojibwe to and
from Grand Portage National
Monument on Lake Superior,
where interpreters re-create a
colorful era; the best time to
go is during the annual
Rendezvous in August. From
Grand Portage, ferries take
hikers, campers and kayakers
to Isle Royale National Park, a
narrow, 45-mile-long island
that has 165 miles of hiking
trails and the densest popula-
tion of moose in the lower 48
states.
On the opposite corner of
Minnesota, the state's other
national monument is a
sacred site to Plains Indians,
who still quarry the soft red
rock that lies under quartzite
that erupts out of the Earth at
Pipestone National Mon-
ument. This marble-like rock,
part of the uplifted floor of an
ancient sea, rises to a 90-foot-
high line of cliffs farther
south, in dramatic Blue
Mounds State Park, and pops
out of the sod to the east at


Jeffers Petroglyphs, where an
ancient people etched their
story in nearly 2,000 charac-
ters.
: Manmade structures also'


have their spot on the list. In
Duluth, the clanging of the
steel Aerial Lift Bridge brings
crowds running to see
freighters arriving and de-
parting. On the other side of
the narrow canal, guests in
the corner suites of the South
Pier Inn run onto their bal-
conies, from which they can
see both the lake and the har-
bor. On the other side of Lake
Superior, raised platforms
allow tourists and boat nerds
to watch the rise and fall of
boats through the Soo Locks
in Sault Ste. Marie. If you're
that far into the Upper Pen-
insula, be sure to spend an
extra day at impossibly pic-
turesque Mackinac Island, on
Lake Michigan, and then you
might as well keep going till
you reach Sleeping Bear
Dunes National Lakeshore.
The architecture of Chi-
cago brings out crowds who
walk downtown sidewalks,
necks craned, on tours spon-
sored by the Chicago Arc-
hitecture Foundation, which
also offers tours of Frank
Lloyd Wright buildings in
nearby Oak Park. In Spring
Green, on the Wisconsin
River, the Wright masterpiece
Taliesin can be visited on
tours given by the Frank Lloyd
Wright Visitors Center. A dif-
ferent kind of spectacle sits on
a limestone spire overlooking
Taliesin and its valley; the
over-the-top House on the
Rock is said to owe its exis-
tence to its builder's desire to
spite the haughty architect.
Farther upstream, the fan-
tastical sandstone formations
of the Wisconsin Dells were
created by a 100-foot wall of
water at the end df the last Ice
Age, the same kind of deluge
that created the Dalles of the
St. Croix at Taylors Falls. Signs
of the last glacier can be seen
best by hiking the Ice Age
National Scenic Trail across
Wisconsin and by exploring
the glens and hollows of the
Baraboo Hills, a 25-mile-long
swath recognized as a "Last
Great Place" by the Nature
Conservancy. Not far from the
Dells, the International Crane
Foundation harbors endan-
gered cranes from around the
world. In Mirror Lake State
Park, the Seth Peterson Cot-
tage is the only Wright-de-
signed building in the world
that the public can rent for
private use.
In the past century, Wis-
consin has been a crucible for
many untrained artists, who
work their magic in concrete
and shards of glass. The state's
collection of. folk-art sculp-
ture gardens is perhaps the
most spectacular in the na-
tion: Fred Smith's Wisconsin
Concrete Park in Phillips, the
Paul and Matilda Wegner
Grotto near Sparta, the James
Tellen Woodland Sculpture
Garden near Sheboygan,
Prairie Moon Sculpture Gar-
den and Museum near Foun-
tain City arid Nick Engelbert's
Grandview between Mineral
Point and New Glarus; all
were restored by the Kohler
Foundation. The Dickeyville
Grotto, in the southwest tip of
the state, is worth a trip as
well.
The coulee country of
southwest Wisconsin is full of
surprises. Norwegians settled
around Westby; at their annu-
al Snowflake International Ski
Jumping Tournament,
Olympic-caliber athletes soar
off a 114-meter hill that's one

America. Amish settled
around Cashton and Ontario,
and stopping at the Amish
farms that sell goods along
Wisconsin 33 allows a fasci-
nating glimpse of their
lifestyle.
Nearby, the Elroy-Sparta
State Trail, with its three tun-
nels, is the oldest bicycling rail
trail in the nation and still one
of the best. South of the
Wisconsin River, the Swiss
settled around New Glarusf
and Monroe and built an
empire of cheese; today, a
Limburger-and-onion sand-
wich at Baumgartner's in
Monroe confers instant
cheesehead status. The lead-
mining town of Mineral Point
drew miners from Cornwall,
and its stone facades bear
their mark; their heritage is
preserved at Pendarvis. Ga-
lena, another lead-mining
town across the border in
Illinois, also has become a
magnet for artists and shop-
pers.
Madison, with its blinding-
ly white Capitol, museums
and lively State Street squeez-
ed onto the isthmus between
two lakes, is a destination in
every season. Some call it an
oasis from reality; you can get
the real thing at the luxurious
Canterbury Inn, where guests
retreat into a Chaucerian
world atop a bookstore.
In the middle of Iowa, the
four-diamond Hotel Pattee in
Perry is another fantasy oasis,
furnished with Persian rugs,
terra-cotta tile, original paint-
ings and so much Honduran
mahogany its owner tem-
porarily cornered the market
for it. Each of its 40 rooms and
suites has a different theme,
honoring everyone from the
creator of the 'Alley Oop"
comic strip to the RAGBRAI
bike" ride and local Dutch
immigrants.
Glaciers never reached the
triangle of ridges and valleys
that mark the comers of Iowa,
Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Limestone chimney spires
and towering bluffs amaze
those who canoe the Upper
Iowa River near Decorah. In
nearby Spillville, where com-
poser Antonin Dvorak spent
the summer of 1893, the Bily
Clock Exhibit shows what two
Bohemian bachelor farmers
could whittle over the long,
lonely winters. Across the
border in Minnesota, Niagara
Cave near Harmony and
Mystery Cave near Preston
show what drops of water can
do over a few eons.
The Mississippi looms
large in this region, populated
by the spirits of Dakota war-
riors, French explorers and
steamboat captains. The best
views of the Mississippi River
give a sense of its scope and
power: Barn Bluff in Red
Wing; Buena Vista Park in
Alma; Brady's Bluff in Perrot
State Park, near Trempealeau;
Mount Hosmer in Lansing, in
northeast Iowa; Pikes Peak
State Park near McGregor,
andWyalusing State Park near
Prairie du Chien.
Wildlife watchers look for
different kinds of views. At
Horicon Marsh in southeast
Wisconsin, thousands of war-

blers and many other water-
fowl stop in spring, and geese
descend in fall. In November,
hundreds of tundra swans
create a spectacular sight in
Rieck's Park in Alma; across
the river, in Wabasha and
Read's Landing, eagle-watch-
ing reaches its zenith between
December and March. On the
Mississippi north of the Twin
Cities, hundreds of trumpeter
swans spend the winter at a
city park in Monticello.
The headwaters of the
Mississippi, in Itasca State
Park, are a magnet for school-
children around the nation;
stay at the Douglas Lodge,
which has been housing park
visitors since 1905. From
there the Mississippi heads
north to Bemidji, crossing
Lake Bemidji near Paul
Bunyan and Babe the Blue
Ox, the first of the many giant
mascots that line roadsides in
Minnesota and Wisconsin.
To the east, black bears fre-
quent Vince Shute Wildlife
Sanctuary near Orr, thrilling
visitors in summer. At the
International Wolf Center in
Ely, five resident wolves show-
case the alpha and omega of
lupine behavior.
One of Minnesota's newest
attractions cuts through the
best of the Iron Range; riding
the Mesabi Trail between
Grand Rapids and Eveleth will
be a revelation to anyone who
hasn't seen an emerald-green
mine-pit lake or such specta-
cles as Virginia's Mineview in
the Sky or Hill Annex Mine
State Park in Calumet. The
trail doesn't yet reach Tower,
site of Soudan Underground
Mine State Park, where visi-
tors get into an elevator and
descend the equivalent of
seven football fields into the
Earth.
At the foot of Lake Su-
perior, voyageurs went uprthe
St. Louis River, portaging,
around a series of deadly rap-
ids in what is now Jay Cooke
State Park, one of many parks
that offer candlelight skiing,
Feb. 13 this year. Farther up-
river, Superior Whitewater in
Carlton takes people white-
water rafting down a thrilling
but less deadly series of rapids
on the same river.
Duluth's lakefront, once
bypassed by tourists heading
up the North Shore, now is
hopping in warmer months.
Heading up the Shore, the
cascades of Gooseberry Falls
State Park require a stop, as do
the view from Palisade Head,
Shovel Point in Tettegouche
State Park and Split Rock
Lighthouse.
Many of the most popular
segments of the Superior
Hiking Trail are near Lutsen:
Carlton Peak, Oberg Moun-
tain and the Cascade River. In
Grand Marais, visitors flock to
the rocky outcropping of
Artist's Point.
Inland, a hike to Eagle
Mountain takes hikers to
Minnesota's highest point. On
the Gunflint Trail, skiers find
200 kilometers of groomed
trails; stop to eat at the mid-
point Trail Center's Black Bear
Bar & Restaurant, which tran-

scends the usual skier-snow-
mobiler antipathies. It's also a
good place to see mushers
during the John Beargrease
Sled Dog Marathon, which
started March 7 this year, and
outfitters in the area offer
dog-sledding trips you can-
take yourself.
Back on the North Shore,
in Judge C.R. Magney State
Park, the Devil's Kettle swal-
lows half of the Brule River;
across the highway, Nani-
boujou and its vivid Great
Hall offer a fleeting glimpse of
Jazz Age days.
In Grand Portage State
Park, the 120-foot High Falls
on the Pigeon River are
Minnesota's highest waterfall,
though they're shared with
Ontario. In Thunder Bay, Old
Fort William re-creates the
fur-trade era with astonishing
thoroughness. In the Port
Arthur neighborhood, stop
for a meal at the Hoito, an old
Finnish logging-camp restau-
rant, and a view of the Sibley
Peninsula, also known as the
Sleeping Giant.
Then keep going around
Lake Superior for the other
highlights of the Circle Tour:
hiking in Pukaskwa National
Park, climbing the Grand
Sable Dunes in Grand Marais,
cruising past Pictured Rocks
National Lakeshore out of
Munising, exploring the har-
bor and copper-mining
towns of the Keweenaw Pen-
insula and hiking in Por-
cupine Mountains Wilder-
ness State Park.
If it's summer, stop near
Bayfield for a show at Big Top
Chautauqua, and take a
detour inland to see the
waterfalls at Copper Falls,
Amnicon and Pattisori state
parks.
In the Twin Cities, no
Mlinnesotan~wodvrh'kitsskltif
he hasn't done the basics:


walking, bicycling or skating
around the Minneapolis
. Chain of Lakes; watching fire-
works from the Stone Arch
Bridge; visiting Minnehaha
Falls; or driving along St.
Paul's Summit Avenue to ogle
the beautifully preserved
Victorian mansions. I would-
n't include the Mall of
America, but they say it's the
state's No. I attraction. And to
see the cities at their best, go
to the milk-carton boat races
during Minneapolis' Aqua-
tennial in July and to see the
ice palace during St. Paul's
Winter Carnival, Jan. 22-Feb.
8. This year, don't miss Grand
Flotilla Weekend, July 3-4 in
St. Paul; it's part of the big
Grand Excursion 2004 cele-
bration on the Mississippi
River.
Every Minnesotan, of
course, must go to the Min-
nesota State Fair. Cheese-
heads must attend at least
one game at Lambeau Field,
anglers must hook and im-
bibe at the February Eelpout
Festival in Walker, Nor-
wegians must go to July's
Nordic Fest in Decorah, Iowa,
and Nordic skiers must sign
up for at least one Birkebeiner
ski marathon from Cable to
Hayward, Wis., in February.
Everyone should attend a few
powwows, and it would be a
shame to miss the Lumber-
jack World Championships in
Hayward in July; the Sep-
tember Civil War Weekend at
the Wade House in Green-
bush, Wis.; May's Tulip Time
in Pella, Iowa, or the Win-
nipeg Folk Festival in July.
It shouldn't take a lifetime
to polish off this list but if it
does, I'd consider it a lifetime
well-spent.

Local authors plan book signing, symposium at Cultural Center Wednesday


BY DON MOORE
SENIOR WRITER

A bunch of guys whose war
stories I've written have pub-
lished books about their mili-
tary experiences and what
they did with the rest of their
lives after coming of age in a
time of war.
Recently I contacted each
of them and suggested that
we hold a joint book signing.
All of their stories reflect lives
led by many area residents of
similar age who served in the
military. The authors thought
the book-signing idea was a
good one. Thanks to Kerry
Perga, assistant executive
director of the Poft Charlotte
Cultural Center, the big event
is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. on Wednesday, March
23, at the cultural center.
If you stop by the center,
located at 2280 Aaron St. in
Port Charlotte, you'll meet
some men who were not only
soldiers and lived to write
about it, but people who have
done some other fascinating
things in their lives. Then
there's me. I was in no one's
war but I've listened to and
faithfully recorded many in-
credible war stories. I've pub-


lished many of their tales in
two books.
In addition, all the authors
will participate in a sympo-
sium on military memoirs in
which the audience will be
encouraged to share their sto-
ries. James Abraham, a book
broker and former military
affairs journalist who writes a
weekly independent book
column,' will moderate the
symposium. The symposium
is $10 per person at the door,
a portion of which will go
toward the purchase of any of
their books.
Here's the run down on the
books and their authors:
"Al's Song" was written by
Al Alberts of Port Charlotte.
It's an autobiography about
his service during World War
II when he was a radioman
aboard the destroyer, the
Charles E Hughes, (DD-428),
which sunk a German U-boat
and three German patrol
boats. The book also covers
his rise to fame as the lead
singer for the "Four Aces"
quartet in the '50s. They
recorded a number of hit
songs that went gold, includ-
ing: "Three Coins in the
Fountain" and "Love is a
Many Splendid Thing," and


sold more than 100 million
records.
"Cavalry Raids of the Civil
War" was written by Col.
Robert Black of Port Char-
lotte. He is a retired U.S. Army
Ranger who served in Korea
and Vietnam. The colonel is
the author of two other
books, "Rangers in World War
II" and "Rangers in Korea."
His latest book discusses in
detail seven raids by Civil War
cavalry units on both sides of
the conflict. Among the
accounts is that of Con-
federate Gen. Jeb Stuart's
encirclement of Union Gen.
George McClellan's Army of
the Potomac during the
Peninsula Campaign.
"My Life in the Air" by Ed
Mitchell of Englewood is
about Mitchell's days' as a
navigator aboard a B-29
bomber flying raids over To-
kyo in World War II and his
experiences as an airline pilot
after the war. Mitchell was a
navigator on the first Amer-
ican bombing run over Japan
since the Doolittle raid. He
later became an airline pilot
and flew for Seaboard World
Airlines. During his exciting
civilian flying career, Mitchell
flew a group of Yemeni Jews


who faced possible extinction
out of northeast Africa to
Israel in 1949, navigated
planes during the Berlin
Airlift, defied Idi Amin's gov-
ernment during a cargo run
to Uganda, and captained air-
planes such as the Super-
Constellation, DC-4, and the
mammoth 747 in civilian life.
"War Tales II," a compila-
tion of 25 more of the war sto-
ries I've written about old sol-
diers who live primarily in the
Sun's circulation area. Accom-
panying these stories are
nearly 150 old photographs,
many of ,them historical.
There are stories from World
War II, Korea, Vietnam and
Iraq in the second book of
"War Tales."
"My Nine Lives" by Roy
Sannella of Port Charlotte is
an autobiography of his naval
service in World War II, where
he rescued survivors of the
second Pearl Harbor disaster;
his Korean War experiences
as a Marine, and his life in
Hollywood as the owner of a
well-known night club. He
owned Hollywood's popular
"Royal Room" during the '50s.
The nightclub became the
hangout of movie stars and
starlets, gangsters and high


rollers. Sannella rubbed el-
bows with the likes of
Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sin-
atra, Eartha Kitt, Louis Arm-
strong, Milton Berle, Fats
Domino and Mickey Cohen.
"The Beast Was Out There"
by Brig. Gen. James Shelton is
an analysis of a shattering
loss suffered by The Black
lion, the 2nd Battalion of the
1st. Infantry Division in
Vietnam. The unit was sent
headlong into a full regiment
of Viet Cong veterans in the
bush along Highway 13 north
of Saigon in October 1967 and
was defeated with grave loss-
es. Shelton places the battle
in context by discussing the
two sides, order of battle and
the decisions, both good and
bad, which led to the clash of
forces. The general had a col-
orful past with several mili-
*tary units such as The Black
Lions, the 101st Airborne Di-
vision and the Berlin Brigade
in his 25-year military career.
"Tall Trees, Tall People" by
Rex Southwell of El Jobean is
an autobiography of the
author's growing up in the
woods of northern Michigan
during the '30s. He traces the
lives his parents lived in
upper Michigan around the


turn of the century. Southwell
was the son of a ship's carpen-
ter, the product of a broken
marriage who ended up in a
state orphanage as a teenag-
er. He was a radio operator
aboard C-46 cargo planes
that flew the treacherous
trans-Himalayan air supply
route known as "The Hump"
during World War II. He had
more than 1,000 hours of air-
time flying in the China-
Burma-India theater of World
War II.

HOSPICE from page 1B


philosophy instead of an
institution. The idea of Hos-
pice is to provide the dying
with support and dignity.
That means providing them
with the freedom to do what-
ever they choose. Grant said
patients can go on a cruise if
they want. A cruise cannot be
funded by Hospice but they
can give a patient the option
to go out and do things they
otherwise couldn't by teach-
ing them how to conserve
energy and making them
secure in doing it. That is
what makes the care provided
at Hospice so special.


Grant remembers some
special things patients have
received like an autographed
Paul "Bear" Bryant photo and
a hot-air balloon ride to name
a few. Requests from patients
can be met, but Hospice does
much more than that.
Hospice also offers be-
reavement programs for fam-
ilies and friends of loved ones
who choose Hospice. It is
another special reason for its
existence. The bereavement
program has follow-up visits
and a volunteer call staff to
check on those close to the
patient. For a hospice nurse,


losing a patient after being
with them for a long period of
time can be problematic.
"There are valleys and
mountains," Grant said. It's
sad and gut-wrenching but
never depressing. This is a
very rewarding, job. It's not
something every nurse can
do. It's more of a vocation
than a job."
Nurses at Hospice develop
substantial relationships with
their patients and when the
patients are gone, the nurses
have to deal with loss, too.
There is an event held twice a
year for family, friends and


nurses to remember patients.
A lot of intimate time is spent
between a nurse and patient,
which is why a Hospice nurse
has to be caring and profes-
sional all in one.
The staff of Hospice could
not operate on its own. Vol-
unteers of Hospice work in all
facets of the organization
including art therapy and
clowning. For many profes-
sional artists who spend their
last days at Hospice or for any
patient, art can be something
that puts their mind at ease.
Ross Parker has been a vol-
unteer since the very begin-

'Puttin'on the Dog'
Englewood Animal Rescue
Sanctuary (EARS) invites the
community to "Puttin' On
The Dog," the third annual
EARS Spring Fashion Show
and Luncheon, Monday, April
4,11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., at the
Elks Lodge, 401 N. Indiana
Ave. (State Road 776), in
Englewood.
All proceeds benefit EARS
- serving Sarasota, Charlotte
and surrounding communi-
ties with rescuing, fostering
and adoption services for sur-
rendered, stray and aban-
doned pets. The future sanc-
tuary campus will include
cageless dormitories and spa-


ning. Like Grant he learns
from the courage of the pa-
tients. He was originally a vol-
unteer for Sarasota Memorial,
at the time of Hospice's beghfi
ning. Since then Parker has
served on the board of trus-
tees for Hospice as a trained
vigil sitter to relieve caregivers
of their duties.
"The real heroes to me are
the patients," he said. "Heroes
are the people who know
what their fate is, but still try
to help others."
The heroes Parker refers to
are past patients. One such
female patient affected Parker
so that he will never forget
her. She had a tremendous
personality and he said she
would go out of her way to
make other patients feel bet-
ter.
Her love for butterflies
inspired a butterfly garden for


cious sheltered outdoor
yards. Plans include a multi-
purpose community building
for use as a hurricane shelter
for pets and their human
companions.
The fashion show and lun-
cheon feature the latest
spring and summer fashions
from La Casa del Quetzal, The
Boutiques of Venice. Models
include local business owners
and EARS supporters. Raffles
and door prizes include a
September week in a Nash-
ville condo, theater tickets,
restaurant certificates and
gifts galore.
Reserved tickets are $15.
Call 475-0636 or 460-0300.


other Hospice patients to
enjoy.
Parker said the most im-
portant aspect of Hospiceasi
that no patient's familyhats
ever been given a bill for any-
thing.
It takes a special person to
provide the special care need-
ed to patients of Hospice.
Grant and Parker are some of
those people. Besides being a
people person, a Hospice
worker must want to know,
what they can do for people
or how they can make a dif-
ference. Biggest of all is how
they can be an inspiration to
somebody.
For Grant, Hospice has been,
one grand journey that keeps
winding down the road, teach-
ing her new things everyday..
"I'd do it all over again,".
Grant said. "I can't imagine
anything more rewarding."

home. Excess heat is drawn
from the home, expelled to
the loop, and absorbed by
the Earth. Thus the system is
providing cooling in'much
the same way that a refriger-
ator keeps its contents cool
- by drawing heat from the
interior, not by injecting cold
air from the exterior. The
only additional energy that
these systems need, other
than the heat from the
Earth's surface, is a small
amount of electricity to
power the pumps that circu-
late the collected heating or
cooling throughout the
home.
"It's a truly renewable sys-
tem requiring a minimal
amount of energy," said
Lisa McArthur of the
International Ground Source
Heat Pump Association,
another trade group. "The
temperature underground is


constant year-round (low 40s
in the northern United States
to the low 70s in the South).
If a home needs to be heated
in the winter or cooled in the
. summer, the energy source is
in one's own backyard," she
said.
Depending upon the size
and quantity of pumps need-
ed, homeowners can expect
to pay a few thousand dollars
more for installation than for
a conventional fossil-fuel sys-
tem. But with geothermal,
homeowners enjoy reduced
energy bills, high reliability
and long life. "There is always
initial sticker shock, but our
clientele is more concerned
with the environment and
long-term use rather than
the initial bottom line," said
Scott Jones, a sales manager
at ECONAR, a Minnesota-
based heat pump producer.
According to the U.S.


Department of Energy, geot-
hermal technology can
reduce energy costs up to 60
percent compared to tradi-
tional furnaces. This means
that a geothermal unit will
pay for itself in two to 10
years. Subsidies and tax
incentives, which vary from
state to state, can make the
systems even more afford-
able. Homeowners can
check with the free online
Database of State Incentives
for Renewable Energy to see
if their state provides any
such incentives.

eye glasses or contact lenses.
Along with normal aging
vision changes, which usual-
ly can be corrected, the four
most common age-related
eye diseases are macular
degeneration, glaucoma,
cataract and diabetic
retinopathy. If you suffer
from low vision, here are
some tools and resources
that may be able to help you.
Lighting
As the eyes age, the pupils
gets smaller, and the need for
more light becomes neces-
sary to see well. There are
dozens of companies that
offer high quality, glare-free
lights, lamps and magnifying
lamps that can make a big
difference. Here are three
good resources to visit:
The Daylight Company:
us.daylightcompany.com,
(866) 329-5444
Ott-Lite: ottlite.com, (800)
842-8848
FirstStreet: firststreeton-
line.com, (800) 704-1209
Low vision helpers
There's a variety of low
vision aids that can help peo-
ple maintain and even


improve quality of life. Here
are some different tools and
resources to consider:
Magnifiers: There are
many different types of mag-
nifying lenses that can help
with reading and hobbies.
Two other magnifying tools
to know about; the VideoEye,
a low vision reading machine
that magnifies printed text
onto a computer monitor or
TV screen, videoeyecorp
.com, (800) 416-0758.
Low vision aids: These
include talking and/or over-
sized clocks, watches, remote
controls, telephones, caller
IDs, writing aids, thermome-
ters, thermostats, computer
equipment and more. You
can find low vision aids and
magnifiers by going on-line
and typing in "low vision
products" into your search
engine, or see the savvy
resources listed below.
Large print publications:

NewYork Times large type
weekly, nytimes.com/nyt-
store, (800) 631-2580. And,

Elder abuse
Dear Savvy Senior,
The other day I stopped in to
see a former neighbor who was
recently widowed and lives by
himself. I hadn't seen him for a
while and I was stunned by
what I saw. A man who was
once an impeccable groomer
with an immaculate house and
yard was living in squalor. He
was also wearing a wrinkled
shirt that was too small and not
heavy enough for the cold
weather. This isn't the same guy
I remember. At first I suspected
Alzheimer's, but he seems alert,
and his memory was as sharp as
ever when we talked about the
old days. Any idea what is going
on here? Stunned Sarah
Dear Stunned
It might be a form of elder
abuse. Most people, when
they think of elder abuse,
think of physical or emotion-
al torment inflicted by anoth-
er person, but that's only part
of it. Did you know that self-
neglect accounts for the
majority of elder abuse cases
reported to adult protective
services?
Self-neglect is often asso-
ciated with Alzheimer's or


other forms of dementia, but
not always. It can also be
brought on by a person's
declining health, isolation,
depression or drug and alco-
hol dependency. And, symp-
toms of self-neglect may
include things like poor
hygiene, inappropriate dress
and behavior, hoarding, fail-
ure to take essential medi-
cines or seek medical treat-
ment, confusion, and poor
housekeeping.
Savvy facts
The most common type of
elder abuse is neglect, and
family members are most
often the abusers.
Abuse
While there's no exact figure
on how many seniors in the
United States are abused
each year, either by them-
selves or by others, some
studies indicate the number
could be as high as 5 million.
Here are the different forms
of elder abuse and some
early telltale signs:
Physical abuse. Signs
could include bruises, pres-
sure marks, abrasions, burns
or the refusal by the caregiver
to allow visitors.
Emotional abuse. Warning


signs may include someone
depressed, withdrawn, less
alert or extremely agitated.
Sexual abuse. Non-
consensual sexual contact of
any kind.
Exploitation. Look for
changes in the elder's bank
or financial accounts or
unauthorized withdrawal of
funds using the elder's ATM
card. Also watch out for
missing valuables.
Neglect. Warning signs
may include bedsores, unat-
tended medical needs, poor
hygiene, unsanitary and
unclean living conditions
and unusual weight loss.
Abandonment. Desertion
of an elder, weather it be at a
hospital, nursing facility,
shopping center or other
location.
What to do
If you notice changes in
an elder's personality or
behavior, you should start to
question what is going on
with them or their caregiver.
And if someone you know is
in immediate danger, call 9-
1-1. If it's not an emergency,
report your concerns to your
state elder abuse hotline. To
get the number, call (800)
677-1116.

"This benefit of seeing... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to

JEFF TAVARES
PHOTO EDITOR

Susan Marie Plyler received
her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree
in Illustration from the Ringling
School of Art and Design in 1995.
After graduation she spent five
years as the art director for the
Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota
County.
However, "Gypsy" as she is
known to everyone, seems quite
comfortable as the sole tattoo
artist at the Acme Tattoo Co. on
U.S. 41 in Nokomis.
"I love what I do, because I
hardly ever do anything twice"
says Gypsy as she works on a fore-


arm tattoo for client Joe Luggar.
All of Gypsy's work is custom,
one of a kind tattoos. She works
with her clients brainstorming
ideas and then first producing a
drawing of the tattoo a client is
considering. Changes are made
until the client is satisfied and the
process of applying the tattoo
begins.
"It takes four to five sessions
to d6 a full sleeve" says Gypsy,
meaning a tattoo which extends
from the shoulder down to the
wrist wrapping completely
around the arm.
Luggar, who got his first tattoo
when he was 18, seems relaxed as
Gypsy does her work. "There's no


real pain, just afterwards it feels
like you have a sunburn," Luggar
comments. "I always had a fasci-
nation with tattoos since I was a
kid, so I decided to try it out,"
Gypsy began doing her art-
work painting Harley Davidson
motorcycles before becoming a
tattoo artist apprentice for two
years at the Nokomis shop and
then it's sole tattoo artist.
Gypsy doesn't seem to mind
the 65-hour weeks she puts in at
the shop. Her work is clearly a
labor of love.
"I like the permanency of the
artwork," she says. "I get a kick out
of. seeing my art on people
around town."

SUN PHOTOS BY JEFF TAVARES,
jtavares@venicegondolier.com


Most of the shops' customers
are over 40 according to Gypsy,
including a retired marine who
came in for his first tattoo at age
72. He had his Vietnam service
ribbons tattooed on his arm.
The Acme is a spotless clean,
well-lit environment, and that is
clearly what Gypsy wants.
Gypsy herself has tattoos, none
of which is visible when she wears
jeans and a sleeveless shirt, as she
was while being interviewed.
She says she discourages peo-
ple under 25 from getting any
tattoos on their right arm or hand.
She extends her hand as if to
shake someone's hand and says,
"I try to tell these kids you're going


to be going for jobs and you don't
want a tattoo to be the first thing
people know about you."
Gypsy has little time between
appointments as she continues
her work on Luggar, attempting
to finish before her next client
arrives.
She clearly loves what she does
despite the long hours. As the
interview is ending, Gypsy's
phone rings. As she reaches over
for the phone and someone
enters the shop, Gypsy looks over
and says, "No rest man."

the Gondolier Sun. He writes an
