This for sale sign located on farmland is just one of at least five signs on Laurel Road east of 1-75
offering land for sale.

The Laurel Road development explosion in the
past decade is turning up the heat on an already


strained roads system.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Some Venice old-timers
and anti-growth groups are
yearning for the good old
days when Laurel Road east
of Interstate 75 was a dusty
dirt road traveled mostly by
garbage trucks heading to the
county landfill.
And that was just three
years ago.
Times have changed. De-
velopment of what was once
grazing and farm land is turn-
ing the Laurel Road and 1-75
area into what could almost
be its own small city com-
plete with'housirig, a school,
an employment center, a fire
station, a shopping center, a


hospital even a movie the-
ater.

ABOUT THIS SERIES
This is the first of a series of
stories about growth along
the eastern end of Laurel
Road. In Wednesday's edition
the focus turns to a pending
shopping center. 20-screen
movie theater and a hospital.

"I remember as a kid,
Laurel was just a two-lane
road and there were just a few
residential homes and busi-
nesses by U.S. 41, and then


there was Mission Valley.
From there on out, it was all
rural," said Jeff Boone, a Ven-
ice native and land-use attor-
ney who's represented most of
the Laurel Road developers.
Anti-growth groups ques-
tion the need for all of these
developments. They.point to
the strain city services like
water, sewage and public
safety will take and claim
impact fees and increased tax
revenues fail to cover city
costs.
Government officials at the
state and county levels are
worried about their roads sys-
tem and question Venice's
handling of this growth.

After more than five
months without a new con-
tract, the city and negotiators
with the police officers union
thought they were close to
finalizing a deal Friday.
The two sides wound up
leaving the table frustrated
and tired, with Fraternal Or-
der of Police negotiator Paul
Murphy accusing Venice of
offering less money than its
proposal of two weeks ago.
"It's backloaded the money
in year two," Murphy said. "I
basically told them at that
point, their actions constitute,
bad faith bargaining and they
are subject to a breach of the
labor standards, and we could
file a complaint against
them."
Administrative Services
Director Brenda Digges was
still shaking her head when
asked for cormment'Saturday.
maintaining the city worked
to rectify all of the union's
complaints.
"We basically increased
everything across the board,"
Digges said. "I guess exasper-
ated is the best word.
"How they nov' feel is,
there is a bucket of money
that should be their,. We have
to have a rational basis for
paying people. We feel strong-
ly we need to pay police offi-


cers to be competitive with
other departments in Sara-
sota County, and what we
have offered them is very
competitive."
The contract for sergeants
and lieutenants also remains
in limbo. Final salary offers
for these law enforcement
members cannot be deter-
mined until the patrol offi-
cer's rate is agreed to.
"(Administrative
Services Director)
Brenda (Digges) said at
the end she never, ever,
ever intended to offer
us less, but someone
didn't look at the
numbers."
Paul Murphy, Fratemal
Order of Police negotiator

The problem
Contract negotiations are
at the stage where annual
salary is the only remaining
issue. Union officials have
agreed to pay health insur-
,ance; tabled disputes over
paying into the pension fund;
and are no longer pushing
take-home cars.
The problem rests with
how much of an annual salary
increase police officers re-


er


ceive. Union officials want an
across-the-board raise of 6
percent for up to three years,
while the city's offer Friday
was about 4.6 percent the first
year and 6.2 the second.
In essence, that flip-flops
the city's proposed raises
from two weeks ago 6 per-
cent the first year and 4.5 the
second -- and amounts to
about $1,650 less in total
salary during the two-year
period, Murphy contends.
"Brenda (Digges) said at
the end she never, ever, ever
intended to offer us less, but
someone didn't look at the
numbers," Murphy said.
The, city's stance is it
worked to address union con-
cerns that entry-level and
top-salary scale officers were
not being offered enough.
Friday's offer on salaries was
an attempt to fix that, Digges
said.
Multiplying the number of
current officers at each salary
level for a total dollar amount
as the union did in analyz-
ing the latest offer wasn't
what the city did, according to
Digges. Friday's offer was
about comparing salaries of
Venice police at various salary
stages and making sure the
amounts compared to neigh-
boring law enforcemiiieit
agencies.
But when FOP negotiators
subtracted the total salaries
over two years in Friday's offer
from the one two weeks ago,
that difference came to $1,650
less.
"We were not trying to

ver With the rising cost of land
in Sarasota County present-
-gone good ing a challenge in providing
irk. affordable housing to lower-
income residents, county
commissioners approved the
Robert Wilder advertising of the new five-
year consolidated public
housing plan.
The plan is required by the
U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development
SB from local governments that
9B receive community develop-
................10B ment block grants.
10B According to Don I-adsell,
inaire....... 5B director of housing and com-
muhity development for the
county and the city of
lifestyles Sarasota, the plan is a "five-


ues.

year road map" that identifies
housing, homeless, commu-
nity and economic develop-
ment needs, the resources
available and how the local
government plans to match-
those resources to need based
upon priority.
Sarasota County and the
city of Sarasota formed a
consortium several years
ago to receive the federal
funding. The county will
advertise the plan for public
comment over the next 30
days, and make any changes
needed in response to those
comments, before sending
the document to HUD offi-
cials for review.

Real estate signs offering land
for sale along Laurel Road
east of 1-75.


County e-mail memos be-
tween commissioners and
transportation staff voice
concern that Venice is not
doing enough when approv-
ing each new chunk of devel-
opment.
"Before plans for other
developments movies,,
hospitals go any further,
Swe really need to get some
type of legal and formal
agreement from the city that
True (traffic) concurrency will
work," Sarasota County com-
missioner Shannon Staub
wrote in a memo to staff.
"Sorry to be such an alarmist,
but I can see clearly the dis-
mal future for the area unless,
for once, we get ahead of it."
Stages of growth
Other than agriculture
uses, most eastern develop-
ment along Laurel Road
stopped at the Mission Valley
housing subdivision that was
I built in the 1960s, recalled
Boone. There were just a pair
of pa\ed lanes with most traf-
fic and growth headed west
toward the U.S. 41 and Laurel
Road intersection, none of
which is within city limits.
The first big change hap-
pened in 1990, when Sarasota
County Schools bought 58
acres of land at 1900 East
Laurel Road near 1-75. Two
years later Laurel Nokomis
School opened, forever
changing the identity, of the
Area, according to Boone.
"When the school district
built Laurel Nokomis School,
that was the thing that sigiif-
icantly changed the character
of the area from being purely
rural," Boone said. "And then
the next significant event was
the interstate interchange
(Exit 195)."
Like dandelions, develop-
ments started popping up.
PGT Industries then called
Vinyl-Tech needed to
expand, and found a home in
1994 along the northeastern
corner of the I-75/Laurel
Road intersection and bor-
dering Knights Trail Road.
SCounty officials were still
pushing to prevent growth on
'the eastern side of 1-75, but
Venice eventually annexed


the land and offered approval
for PGT's new industrial cen-
ter.
Now there's the Triple Di-
amond Commerce Plaza and
Laurel Interchange Business
Center. The once-vacant land
is now earmarked as the city's
industrial center, with a pair
of concrete plants set to relo-
cate to Knights Trail Road
within five years.
The county landfill also
was established in the early
1990s at the northern end of
Knights Trail with the only
entrance and exit for all of this
traffic at the Laurel and
Knights Trail intersection,
which doesn't have a stop
light.

"Sorry to be such an
alarmist, but I can see
clearly the dismal
future for the area
unless, for once, we get
ahead of it."

Sarasota County commis-
sioner Shannon Staub on
Laurel Road growth

The affect on today's traffic
is staggering, according to Jim
Beach, director of operations
at Triple Diamond Enter-
prises.
"I've never seen it like this,"
Beach said. "One fender ben-
der on 1-75, and it becomes
parking lot. And then they get
off on 41, and it becomes
parking lot. Guess it'll have to
handle it. That's all we have."
Housing boom
Residential housing has
been the next big explosion,
with nearly 2,000 homes
being built along the north-
ern side of Laurel Road east of
Knights Trail Road. Venetian
Golf & River Club will wind up
with just more than 1,300
homes, Lee Wetherington
was recently approved to
build about 150 residences
and Waterford Companies
has proposed building about
500, though this project still
must be approved.
And this isn't even'6insid-

PIT AND FISSURE SEALA TS
Deep pits and fissures may develop cavities e n in communities with
fluoridated water. The purpose of sealants is to prevent or arrest dental
decay in these areas. Because molars are the most likely to develop
cavities, many dentists recommend sealing the chewing surfaces
where fissures are open. If pits and fissure cavities have not developed
by the late teens, they are very unlikely to decay in the future. That is
why sealants are recommended only during the first few years after the
eruption of teeth. Since all the permanent teeh except third molars
have erupted by age 15, sealants are usually hot done after age 18.
After eruption, wisdom teeth will also benefit.
The seal is so effective that bacteria cannot enter the tooth. Bacteria
that have already penetrated through a tiny hole in the fissure will be
sealed in and denied the nutrients of the oral fluids and decay wills
stop. Sealants have proven to be an easy and effective way to eliminate
or lessen dental decay in children.

south side. Boone represents
the owners of that patch of
land and said plans are for it
to be a mixed-use area, most-
ly residential.
The annexation agreement
has been held up while wait-
ing for county planners to
designate where they want
the Jacaranda Boulevard ex-
tension to go. City Manager
Marty Black said the city will
require developers to dedi-
cate land for the extension as
a condition of annexation.
Not more than three years
ago, this entire section of
Laurel Road was a pair of dirt
lanes. Black said the city went
beyond county transporta-
tion requirements by forcing
Venetian Golf & River Club to
pave the entire two lanes,
along with land dedication
for expansion.
"We said to them, 'You're
the first onesin, so you've got
to build it,/" Black said. "They
thought that was a big cost,
but that was what we re-
quired."
All of this area has gradual-
ly been annexed into city lim-
its.
And because of that, it's
changed the intended char-
acter of what county planners
had in mind.
The only two north-south
roads 1-75 and U.S. 41.-
have become more stressed
by daily commuter travels,
with little short-term relief in
sight.
"When all of that area east
of 1-75 was in the county, it
was designated as Major Em-
ployment Center not resi-
dential developments like
Venetian Golf & River Club,"
Staub wrote in answer to a
resident's .complaint. "Once
the annexations to the city
began, that plan totally
changed."

Coalition: Make Blackburn Point Road safer


BYGERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Ron and Mary Anne Whip-
perman have cycled "all over
the USA and Europe without
incident" on their two-
wheeled tandem bicycle.
"But here in Florida, it's
easy to be concerned about
one's life on a bike," said Ron
Whipperman.
For that reason, the couple
is pleased that the Com-
munity Coalition of Neigh-
borhoods in Osprey has em-
barked on a plan to make it
safer for bikers and pedestri-
ans using Blackburn Point
Road.
The Whippermans de-
scribe themselves as "very
conscious of vehicles and ve-
hicular speed on Blackburn
Point Road; and on the nar-
row roadway that bisects
Casey Key. We're very obser-
vant. We use our mirrors con-
stantly to stay aware of trucks
and cars," said Ron.
The Coalition Pine Run,
Blackburn Point Woods, Riv-
endell, the Casey Key Asso-
ciation, South Bay; Park Trace
and the Osprey Revitalization
Committee is at work writ-
ing a neighborhood grant
from Sarasota County.
It would be used "to help
pay the cost of much-needed
space for bikers and pedestri-
ans to maneuver along the
treacherous narrow corridor
of Blackburn Point Road,"
according to Mary-Ann Perry,
one of the grant writers and a
resident.


Building boom
The road is part of a
favorite route for bikers'in the
area. The Whippermans, for
example, start out from Bay
Street, west of U.S. 41, turn
south at Old Venice Road,
cross 41, and head west into
Blackburn Point Road. They
follow it to Casey Key, then
turn south again on Casey
Key Road to the Venice jetty.
At Laurel Road, they turn east
to 41, then follow the highway
to the north, moving in and
out of the Sorrento commu-
nity on the east side of 41.
From there, they retrace
their route onto Old Venice
Road, and turn east into Bay
Street.
They estimate their trip at
about 40 miles, and they
report lots of other bikers on
the same route on Sunday
mornings.
The coalition, according to
Perry, is particularly con-
cerned about bikers because
of three condominium devel-
opments under construction
on Blackburn Point Road.
When they are completed
in late 2006, their residents
will add to vehicular traffic al-
ready heavy moving between
Casey Key and U.S. 41. She
observed that a biker in trou-
ble is hemmed into a narrow
roadway that has water-filled
ditches on both sides.
"The county tells us that
there isn't any money to fix
this situation by adding a
bicycle or pedestrian path,"
Mrs. Perry said; "They suggest
that it will be a major task,

and who's going to pay for
that?"
Slow going
Bicycle safety is on the
minds of many statewide and
nationally. According to a
study by two professors at the


University of Florida in 2003,
the death rate from bicycle
accidents in Florida that year
was three times the national
average. The principal cause,
they found, was that an in-
creasing number of Flor-
idians live on or near high-


ways with "inadequate or
nonexistent sidewalks and
few crosswalks."
In another study, by the
state Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles, 93
percent of the cyclists killed in
accidents in 2003 were not


wearing helmets.
Florida doesn't require,
Adults to wear helmets while
riding their bicycles,
Dwight Kingsbury, assis-
tant bicycle and pedestrian
coordinator in the Florida
Safety Office in Tallahassee,
said a program initiated by
the federal government is in
the beginning stages in Flor-
ida.
First steps include simpli-
fying road signs. They are
designed to alert drivers to
anticipate bicyclists ahead
and out of their vision.
A new sign, reading "Share
the Road," is being installed
on favored biker routes in the
state.
But the program is slow
getting under way, according
.to Alex Boudreau, formerly
county bicycling coordinator.
Again, he said, cost is a rea-
son.
Meanwhile, a Florida bicy-
cle safety law enforcement
guide directs police officers to
focus on cyclists who ride
against the flow of traffic on
the roadway, fail to obey traf-'
fic lights, ignore stop signs
and cycle at night without
required lighting.
The guide encourages the
police to monitor the behav-
ior of motorists as well.

County urges seasonal residents
to prepare for hurricane season
As Easter nears and Florida's seasonal residents.prepare to
return north for the summer, Sarasota County advises those who
are soon leaving to prepare for hurricane season before they leave
for the summer. Hurricane season is June 1 through November
30.
-Winds, often in excess of 100 miles per hour, can turn even
small, unanchored items into deadly missiles, causing damage or
injury when they hit. Glass doors are as vulnerable as windows to
breakage by wind-driven objects. Homeowners can take the
following steps, before they leave their winter homes, to help
prevent potential storm damage to their property and that of their
neighbors:
Bring all outdoor furniture indoors (screened enclosures are not
considered "indoors")
Bring all toys, potted plants, planters, lawn ornaments and
miscellaneous decorative items indoors
Bring all hanging objects, such as pots and wind chimes,
indoors
Bring barbecue grills indoors
Bring trash cans indoors
* Ensure that wall-mounted objects are securely anchored
* Consider installing hurricane shutters
* Before leaving the area, leave your contact information with a
neighbor or other local contact in case of emergency.
County encourages 'green' building
Contractors who choose to use "green" building standardswill
be rewarded under a new incentive program launched by
Sarasota County. Sarasota Board of County Commissioners
passed a resolution March 15 encouraging private construction to
use sustainable building practices through financial incentives,
and reaffirmed the county commitment to building "green."
Private contractors who build to "green" standards will enjoy
fast-track permitting for building permits and a 50 percent
reduction in the cost of building permit fees up to a maximum of
$1,000. There is a total of $5,000 in refunds per builder and the
program is limited to $50,000 per year.
The resolution also mandates that all Sarasota County
Government buildings be built to "green" standards unless the
costs outweigh benefits. All new county buildings must meet the
current version of Leadership in Energy and Environment Design
(LEED) standard.
Recent county examples of "green" buildings include.the Green
Building on the "green" renovated Twin Lakes Park county
government campus and the North Sarasota Library.
This listing is published weekly by Sarasota County Government Public
Communications. Board of County Commission agendas are available at

Charlotte County officials



thank Sarasota County


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Seven months after Char-
lotte County received a dev-
astating blow from Hurricane
Charley, county officials paid
a visit to their counterparts in
Sarasota County.
Charlotte County Com-
missioner Tom Moore, Coun-
ty Administrator Bruce
Loucks and other county offi-
cials appeared before the
Sarasota County Commission
Tuesday to present a procla-
mation and to say thanks for
the county's assistance in the
aftermath of the storm.
"Charlotte County is a very,
very lucky county," Moore
said. "We've got a lot of
friends in a lot of them show-
ed up from Sarasota County.
It was awesome and we have
great pride and appreciation
for what you did."
Moore said the winds from
Charley were just reaching
the subtropical stage after the
brunt of the hurricane had
passed when three convoys
from Sarasota arrived in the
county on Interstate 75.
Those crews immediately set
to work clearing roads for
emergency vehicles and en-
gaging in search and rescue
operations.
"It's hard to put into words
what that day was like," said
Deputy County Adminis-
trator Roger Baltz. "But there
was one constant: the materi-
al aid from our neighbors."


Appointments made
to advisory boards
Sarasota County commis-
sioners made appointments
to three of their advisory
committees on Tuesday to fill
existing vacancies, although
one of the appointments was
really a reappointment.
Dorian Popescu of Eng-
lewood was reappointed to
his position as an at-large
representative to the Metro-
politan Planning Organiza-
tion Citizens Advisory Com-
mittee. Popescu was first ap-
pointed to the group in 1993
and over the last two years,
had an attendance record of
81 percent.
"He's really a dedicated
person," said commissioner
David Mills. "Having some-
one with his training and
background on that commit-
tee is really valuable."
"He just gives so much of
his time," added commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton.
A vacancy still exists on the
committee for a minority rep-
resentative; county staff will
readvertise for applicants for
that position.
For the Advisory Commit-
tee on the Status of Women,
commissioners appointed
Jennifer Highland of Nokomis
and Suzie Seerey-Lester of
Osprey to fill unexpired three-
year terms on the committee.
Five vacancies existed on
the Bicycle/Pedestrian/Trail
Advisory Committee, and
commissioners appointed A.
Scott Dinenberg, Mark Blum-


enthal, Casey, Collins and
Gilbert Roth, all of Sarasota,
and Pamela Schuneman of
Osprey to the committee. The
five new members will all
serve three-year terms.
Construction contract
awarded
As part of their consent
agenda Tuesday, Sarasota
County commissioners
unanimously awarded a $4.2
million construction contract
to Frederick Derr and Com-
pany for unspecified capital
improvement projects.
But the lack of specifics
prompted commissioner
Shannon Staub to question
the item.
Dale Roberts, general
manager of asset manage-
ment for the county, said the
contract was a unit price con-
tract similar to the continuing
contracts the board awards
each year. Under the contract,
there is a limitation of
$100,000 beyond which
board authority must be
sought for specific.projects.
Mollie Williams, manager
of the county's sidewalk con-
struction program, said the
contract would be applied to
small projects such as con-
structing 400 feet of sidewalk.
"It would be more costly to
bid out a project like that than
doing it this way," Williams
said.

CITY NOTES


Street name
change opposed
More than 55 names show-
ed up on a petition by Venice
Bay Adult Park residents to
change the name of Morning
Star Road.
So far, the major chal-
lenger to this request is the
Venice Fire Department. A
memo sent to the planning
department states the change
would cause confusion and
disruption of all emergency
services.
The fire department's
memo points to the dispatch-
ing database and how a new
name would affect any ser-
vice that dispatches to specif-
ic street addresses.
The residents have asked
that Morning Star Road, on


the east side of U.S. 41 Busi-
ness on the north side of Hat-
chett Creek Bridge, be re-
named Venice Bay Road.
Petitions for changing of
street names are handled by
the planning department and
eventually appear before the
planning commission for a
recommendation. A tentative
date for review is April 19.

Another unsafe building
The former Gulf Tides
Motel has been hit with an
unsafe building violation, and
developers must either cor-
rect problems or tear it down.
Venetian Isle Developers
plans to tear down the old
hotel, stretching across lots at
803 South Armada Road and
708 E. 'Granada Ave., and


replace it with a three-story,
building with eight condo-
minium units taking up
12,506 square feet.. Each
condo would have a two-car
garage in the plan approved
by planning commission in
November.
Building code officers cited
the developers because of
wood rot throughout the
building, including the roof
and balconies, and signs of
vagrants living in several of
the rooms.
Venetian Isle Developers
risk fines of $250 per day if the
case appears before Munic-
ipal Code Enforcement mem-
bers.

County increases emergency shelter space


The county will contribute more than $80,000 of
the cost of safer windows for the Bishop Nevins
Academy, which will provide 3,114 spaces for
emergency use.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

A partnership with the
Diocese of Venice will allow
Sarasota County to increase
its shelter space for hurri-
canes and other emergencies.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners unanimously approv-
ed an agreement with the dio-
cese that will permit the
county to use the Bishop Nev-
ins Academy on Fruitville
Road in Sarasota as a public
shelter, the first public-pri-
vate partnership of this kind
in the county.


"It's a wonderful opportu-
nity and we're really excited
about it," said Anne Miller,
operations chief for the coun-
ty's emergency management
department.
But while the dome roof on
the structure will aid in wind'
resistance, the windows of the
building are vulnerable to
wind-blown debris. To lessen
that liability, commissioners
in a separate action also
approved the use of $80,351
of county funds as a matching
grant to provide shutters for
the windows. The county has
already received a $241,051


grant from the Florida De-
partment of Community
Affairs that will provide the
remainder of the funding
needed to shutter the acade-
my
By adding the Bishop Nev-
ins Academy as a public shel-
ter,. the county will gain an
additional 3,114 spaces,
although that doesn't reduce
the deficit in spaces the coun-
ty currently has with the start
of hurricane season a little
more than two months away.
The county has about
44,000 spaces available now,
but with the addition of the
academy and work being
done by the school board,
that will increase to 61,000 by
Aug. 1, Miller said. The coun-
ty would no longer be in a
deficit position regarding
spaces then, she added.

with contract schools.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
Concerned whether alter-
native schools are doing more
than just warehousing stu-
dents who've been expelled,
the Sarasota County School
Board, at its last workshop,
requested a study be con-
ducted of all schools under
contract.
Board member Carol Todd
raised the issue after a recent
round of test scores were
released. Todd said she would
like to see a more thorough
review of contract schools as
they come up for renewal.
"Do we have the same
accountability for our con-
tract schools as other schools?
I think we should," said Todd.
"Accountability can take
many forms, like improved
attendance or graduation
rates not always an FCAT
score," Todd said. "I would
like to ensure with these
schools whether for adju-
dicated students or students
whose expulsion was held in
abeyance we have the
same accountability built into
the contract as we have with
charter school agreements or
public schools and their
improvement plans."
Options
Sarasota County decided a
long time ago not to expel
students for misbehaving,
said associate superintendent
LoriWhite.
Instead of being kicked
out, disaffected youth are
offered a second chance in
alternative schools like Gulf
Coast Marine Institute/South


inVenice, YMCATriad in Sara-
sota and the YMCA's Girls'
Group Home Character
House.
While the board isn't ready
to go as far as requiring per-
formance-based contracts,
members said they'd like to
hear before signing the con-
tract that these schools have
the resources and tools nec-
essary to meet standards set
by the district.
"We only receive brief
statements (from the alterna-
tive schools) for review. We
cannot tell if they actually are
meeting their mission," said
board member John Lewis.
"I'm continually frustrated
(with some of the schools),"
said Todd. "They take the
kids, then say we don't have
the resources to do the job. I
don't know if consistently
we're getting the results we
bargained for."
NCLB issues
Of special interest to the
board are alternative schools
that are now graded under
the federal No Child Left
Behind Act. Under federal
guidelines they must meet
the same Annual Yearly Pro-
gress (AYP) requirements as
other schools, White said,
even though many of the
alternativejschool students
have proven difficulty with
the traditional school setting.
So far, an alternative
school that doesn't make the
grade isn't penalized finan-
cially by the state. But that
could change down the road.

MCC to offer newteacher certification program


STAFF REPORT


Manatee Community Col-
lege will offer a new alterna-
tive program for noneduca-

Born to Read program honored by state


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County's Born to
Read project, a family literacy
program designed to help
parents nurture their babies'
love of learning, has been
named an Exemplary Project
by the Florida Department of
State.
Born to Read, which was
submitted for consideration
under the state's Library
Services and Technology Act
grant program, is one of three
Exemplary Projects to be rec-
ognized in 2005.
The Born to Read concept
was developed during the
mid-1990s by the American
Library Association in re-
sponse to ground-breaking
research on early brain devel-
opment that indicated the


critical need to stimulate
babies in the first months of
life.
Patterns established dur-
ing this relatively narrow win-
dow of opportunity the
first 32 to 35 months create
the platform from which a
baby's learning potential can
be fully developed.
The Born to Read project
encourages families to use
the library and attend story-
time programs; read aloud to
children; and play music in
.the home, emphasizing the
correlation of such activities
to cognitive development and
life skills. Learning materials
distributed to families in-
clude board and picture
books, music recordings,
puppets and interactive lan-
guage games.


In Sarasota County, the
Bom to Read project began in
1999. In its fourth year of state
LSTA funding (October 2004
through September 2005), the
project received $74,000 in
grant money, with local orga-
nizations adding funds and
in-kind donations.
About 4,200 families re-
ceive Born to Read Welcome


Baby Kits at hospitals and
birthing centers annually.
More than 2,000 families are
currently registered as, Born
to Read participants; of these,
about 67 percent were issued
first-time library cards.

the Born to Read program in,
Sarasota County, call (941)

Union officials previously
would only agree to a one-
year contract. City Manager
Marty Black has made clear in
interviews the city needs at
least a two-year contract, be-
cause with single-year agree-

Focus on four
In his presentation to com-
missioners Tuesday, Hadsell
focused on four changes in
the funding recommenda-
tions made by the plan:
Restoring $300,000 to the
South Venice Neighborhood
Improvement Program that
was borrowed to fund the
Englewood Regional Storm-
water project.
Allocating $400,000 in
CDBG funding to construct a
new human services center in
North Port.
Increasing the allocation
for the revitalization of the
Janie Poe housing project in
downtown Sarasota from $1
million to $1.5 million.
Establishing a revolving
loan fund of $900,000 for the
creation of jobs in the New-
town neighborhood of down-
town Sarasota.
Hadsell said the request for
funding for the North Port
project came from the North
Port City Commission. His
understanding was the city
wanted to find an existing
building along U.S. 41 to ren-
ovate. Such a facility would
"provide badly needed social
services to low-income resi-
dents" in the city, according
to an executive summary of
the plan.


raises in each of those three
years. The city and union will
meet again April 4.
Current starting salary of a
Venice police officer is
$33,322 and top-out pay is
listed at $49,249 in the fifth
year. The city offered to make
the starting salary $35,000
this year and $36,000 next,
with the five-year salary at
$52,000 the first contract year
and $53,000 the second.

Adjusted
In a related low-income
housing matter, commission-
ers also unanimously approv-
ed changes to the county's
local housing assistance plan
to make it easier for low-
income residents to receive
assistance.
According to Hadsell, the
increase in the median sales
price of homes in Sarasota
County the median price
went from $201,000 to
$270,000, a 35 percent in-
crease in 2004 is limiting
the number of homes that
could be purchased or reha-
bilitated.
Commissioners agreed to
change the maximum limit
for homes in the down pay-
ment assistance program,
impact fee assistance pro-
gram and special needs hous-
ing to $216,000 to reflect the
increasing sales prices in the
county.
In addition, commission-
ers agreed to raise the maxi-
mum limit for the housing
partnership program, hous-
ing rehabilitation program
and disaster mitigation to
$226,350.

STAFF REPORT

Florida's Safe at Work
Coalition, which includes the
Florida Attorney General's
office, Florida Crime Preven-
tionAssociation, Florida Pros-
ecuting Attorneys Association
and Sonitrol, is urging em-
ployers to help reduce work-
place violence and its costs.
According to the SAW
Coalition, employers nation-
wide report 2 million assaults
in the workplace annually,
costing businesses more than
$38 billion a year.
According to SAW, there
are many simple ways to pre-
vent workplace violence.
Putting a prevention plan in
place before an event occurs
is one of the best things an
employer can do to protect
employees. Prevention plans
assist management, help
troubled employees, and re-
duce violent behavior in the
workplace.
Here are some prevention
policy guidelines:
Establish a reporting pro-
cedure where employees are
encouraged to tell manage-
ment about threats and make
suggestions about reducing
risks.
Lay out behavior that will
not be tolerated and the con-
sequences for breaking the
policy.
Establish a way employ-
ees can alert others in the
workplace when a dangerous
situation arises. This can be
an internal emergency word
or phone number that can be
easily remembered.
Make available a list of
contact persons, crisis man-
agement plans and building
plans for emergency respon-
ders.
Create a confidential
employee assistance program
to help staff deal with emo-
tional, substance abuse and
other problems.
Conduct exit interviews
with all employees who leave,
no matter the cause, to find
violence-related security
problems.
Develop a relationship
with local law enforcement.
Police officers and deputies
can teach employees how to
respond to a violent situation
and assist with a building
security inspection.
Be aware of recent crime
in your area and learn new
prevention techniques.
SAW's Web site provides a
list of workplace violence
warning signs, tips about how
to handle confrontations, and
a free CD with sample policies
employers can implement to
protect their business and
employees.

Police: Shooting most likely an accident


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

John C. Herndon, a North
Englewood resident, was
working next to his green-
house behind his home on
Keyway Road Thursday
evening when he heard three
rapid gunshots, Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office reports
state.
The second shot struck
Herndon in the left side near
his abdomen.
According to reports, Hem-
don, 49, got in a car parked
behind his home and drove
around front to call police.
Within minutes, dozens of
emergency officials, firefight-
ers and police officers arriv-
ed. Sarasota County Fire &
EMS personnel transported
Hemdon to Venice Regional
Medical Center, where he had
surgery Thursday night.
His injuries were not life-
threatening.


Sheriff's office detectives
believe the shooting was acci-
dental, said Sgt. Chuck Le-
saltato. The bullet likely came
from a low-caliber gun.
"We have no reason to
believe it's anything else at this
point," Lesaltato said. "We
have no reason to believe it's
an attempted homicide."
Off target
North Englewood's Keyway
Road, a narrow dirt road rid-
dled with potholes, is home
to only a few houses, most of
which sit away from the street.
Area residents said target
shooters and hunters love
the neighborhood's thick
woods and dirt roads.
Hayes said the victim has a
number of palms and tropical
plants in his yard, which is
bordered by thick woods.
Several told police they
heard a number of shots fired
around 5:40 p.m., when the
shooting occurred.


Resident Steven Shoub
told police he was sitting in
his home's computer room
when he heard what sounded
like gunshots coming from
the west side of his house, the
report stated.
Russell Warren also heard
three shots, possibly from a
revoJver..
Neighbor Michael Zarem-
ba lives across from the
Herndon house. Zaremba
said he didn't notice any
shots Thursday evening, but
said he often hears the pop-
ping of guns in the area.
"You hear them all the
time," he said.
Lesaltato said detectives
hope to wrap up the investi-
gation next week.
Anyone with information
is asked to call the South
County Criminal Investiga-
tion Bureau at (941) 861-1719.

Key to growth: bring in more businesses


County commissioner Paul Mercier told North
Port officials residential development alone won't
generate the kind of revenue the city needs for


the improvements it wani

BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


If you want growth to pay
its own way, you can't do it
with residential areas alone.
That was one of the mes-
sages county commissioner
Paul Mercier communicated
to the Economic Develop-
ment Advisory Board Thurs-
day morning in North Port.
The average home has to be
$310,000 in value and have
2.13 people in it, Mercier said.
The county would be bull-
dozing many houses if growth
had to pay its own way,
Mercier said.
Mercier was invited by the
Economic Development Ad-
visory Board to discuss the
Community Redevelopment


ts.

Area, tax increment financing
and other options for im-
provement to the city of North
Port.
Mercier would like to see
North Port spend money on
attracting and building infra-
structure for commercial and
industrial businesses.
He told the board about the
new community funding in
Sarasota that.infuses the cities
with money instead of estab-
lishing tax increment funding.
The city of Sarasota has a
TIF district and it took about
five years to raise $500,000, he
said. The new program will
give the community the
$500,000 now instead of mak-
ing it wait over time to accu-
mulate.
Mercier said the funds

would help "jump start" the
community and would
require measurable results to
be seen.
This funding would be
accomplished by an interlocal
agreement, he said.
The board would like to see
the 41 corridor improved, but
Mercier suggested that the city
become "friendly" with the
Florida Department of
Transportation. U.S. 41 is a
state road, and the city would
need FDOT permission to
make improvements on state-
owned roads, Mercier said.
"Focus should be on
attracting businesses instead
of beautifying the 41 corridor,"
Mercier said.
According to Bob Tunis,
economic development man-
ager for the city of North Port,
the city has fewer than 20
employers that employ more
than 10 employees.
Without growth in the com-
mercial sector, North Port will
be facing infrastructure prob-


Professional
Preparation
& Planning


lems.
Mercier said that each
home built puts two more cars .
on the road. Without commer-
cial or industrial businesses,v
all these cars will be driving toE
either Sarasota or Charlotte
counties to work, and existing-
roads will be unable to handle
the volume.
"The only way to go north''
or south is either 41 or 1-75. To
compound the problem, how.
do you go east or west?"''
Mercier asked.
When the city uses dollars-'
as an incentive to get busi--
nesses to relocate, the city will'
get the tax base it needs.'
Houses don't get you the same'
tax base, Mercier said.
The board made it clear to:
Mercier that North Port is part
of the county and the city has
paid taxes for development up
north. Now it's time that tax
dollars come down here.

Play Ball! still
at History Center
Weeks before spring train-
ing games herald baseball's
annual rite of renewal, fans
can explore the rich history of
the sport and its impact on
the region in a new exhibit at
the Sarasota County History
Center.
Play Ball! explores the role
baseball played in the 1920s'
effort to market Sarasota as a
place to visit and live. Payne
Park opened in the spring of
1924 when the New York
Giants arrived for spring
training. Season tickets sold
for $11 and general admis-
sion (or viewing from the car)
cost $5.50.
The exhibit will feature
memorabilia and pho-
tographs of the teams that
trained in Payne Park -
including the New York
Giants, Indianapolis Indians,
Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles
Dodgers and Chicago White
Sox. The team played its last
game at Payne Park in 1988.
Demolition of the park's base-
ball field began two years
later in 1990.
Play Ball! also looks at
other people and places in
the county's baseball experi-
ence. John "Buck" O'Neil,
who spent his youthlin Sara-
sota, was a: star in. the Negro


Leagues. Twin Lakes Park be-
gan as the Kansas City Base-
ball Academy, an institution
that combined baseball train-
ing and studies at Manatee
Junior (Community) College.
The exhibit will continue
through May 27. Exhibit
hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m.,
Monday through Thursday,
and 9 a.m-1 p.m. on Satur-
days, except holiday week-
ends. The History Center is

O Girls track down 3rd at County Meet

Boys lift


county


title

Congratulations to the
SVenice High boys weightlift-
ing team, which won the
County Meet held last
Wednesday at Sarasota High.
Coaches Nick Coleman,
John Peacock and Rich Sta-
rowesky have been getting
peak performances from the
boys.
Next up is the sectional
qualifier April 7 at South-
east.

The sparkling new tennis
courts at Venice High look
completed. There are eight of
them located behind the
north gym and theater.
The only thing we noticed
not in place are lights. Also,
the courts closest to Venice
Elemnetary look like they're
on a slant.
There is also no shade in
sight. A few trees would
help.
The Lady Indians will be
hosting districts.

Venice High track and field
athletes have had to hit the
road this year.
There are no home meets
scheduled, Usually, there is at
least one meet at 1 Indian
Avenue.
A big part of the problem is
the track itself. It was resur-
faced last year, but there was
a major boo-boo in lining it.
There are only five lanes. It
is my guess it's impossible
to hold a meet on a track
with five lanes.

We saw this one in Friday's
USA Today.
A full-page ad features a
letter signed by amateur
wrestling czars Dan Gable
and Rulon Gardner. It sup-
ports a new organization
called RealPro Wrestling.
Yep. Professional wrestling.
The real thing. Not staged
alaWWE.
Plus, it will be policed to
keep it squeaky clean. As they
say, no steroids, taunting,
fighting or foul language.
Just world class wrestlers,
Olympians included, trying
to pin each other.
It makes its television de-
but at 4 p.m. Sunday on,PAX-
TV
It could be interesting. Def-
Sinitely worth checking out.
*
Gondolier Sun advertising
manager Dave Cherry had to
be sweating profusely in the
wee hours of Saturday.
Creating the tension was
Villanova, which nearly upset
North Carolina in the NCAA
regional semifinals.
Dave's son, Scott, played
on some great UNC teams in
the early '90s. under Dean
Smith.
Good luck against Wis-
consin, Dave. It should be
easier than against the
Wildcats.
* *
With Venice High having
this coming week off for
spring break, there is very
little sports going on. Even
Venice Little League is Off
this week.
The varsity baseball team
is at Orlando Boone Thurs-
day and Lake Howell Friday.
There are a couple of ju-
nior varsity ball games taking
place at the complex.
At 6 p.m. Tuesday, Char-
lotte is in town and at 6 p.m.


Thursday, Bishop Verot pays
a visit.


Venice boys don't fare as well
in event at Sarasota High.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Going into Thursday's Sarasota
County Meet at Sarasota High, Venice
High girls track and field coach Brenda
Clark expected the worst.
"I was missing six girls because of
injures, illness and vacation," she said.
"I'm thrilled to finish third."
The Lady Indians pulled together as
a team to score 99 points. Riverview
was first with 150 and Sarasota second
at 121.
"I thought we would be annihilated,
but to finish only 20 points behind
Sarasota considering the circum-
stances, it wasn't bad," Clark said.
Meanwhile, the Venice boys placed
fifth with 22 points. Riverview won with
166 points while Sarasota was a distant
second at 107.
"It was our worst meet of the year,"
Indian coach Larry Shannon said. "Our
throwers had been scoring a lot of
points but they were off form. Adrian
Platt had the flu and didn't place in the
long jump."
The County Meet acts as a qualifier
for the annual Pride Meet featuring the
top performers from Sarasota, Manatee
and Charlotte counties. In years past,
the top five finishers in each event qual-
ified for the Pride Meet. But Charlotte
County has backed out of this year's
Pride Meet, allowing the top eight in
each event to advanceto the April 8
meet at Lakewood Ranch.
The Venice girls were missing per-


former like Melissa Garfelo, Sarah
Chiminiello, Erin McCullough and
Emily Korszen, to name a few.
While the Lady Indians didn't win
any of the events, there were a whop-
ping nine seconds.
The 4 by 800 relay renewed the rival-
ry with Riverview. Venice won a week
prior at the Southeast Meet. Riverview
won this time around. A switch in the
running order benefited the Lady
Rams, who- clocked a 10:24. Venice,
which had Stephanie Korszen, Genna
Jones, Katie Adams and Chelsea Rose,
was 12 seconds behind at 10:36.
Venice was also second to Riverview
in the 4 by 400. Sarah Ellis, Carla Valor,
Lisa Marie Iorio and Stephanie Korszen
combined to run a 4:28, just four ticks
slower than'the Lady Rams.
The Lady Indians were also second
in the 4 by 100, just nipping Riverview.
Running for Venice were Vickie Mitch-
ell, Ellis, Valor and Jessica Votour.
Individually, Mitchell recorded three
seconds despite a slight hamstring pull.
She was second in the shot put at 36-6,
second in the 100 meters at 12.88 and
second in the 200 at 26.50.
Jones ran second in the 800 with a
2:35 that was just two seconds off the
winning time.
Rose was second in the 1600 run
with a personal best time of 5:44.
Korszen was runnerup to River-
view's Channing Cookerly in the 3200
run. Korszen, who is nursing a strained
quad, was clocked at 12:39.
Freshman Samantha Seeley was
third in the shot put with a throw of 35-
7.

Venice High had athletes compete in Thursday's Sarasota County Track and
Field Meet at Sarasota High. The jumping pit was a busy place late in the
afternoon. Above, Tony Charles is airborne during one of his triple jump
attempts. He ended up fourth in the event good enough to earn a trip to
the upcoming Pride Meet. Below, Lady Indian Katie Adams is about to take
flight during the girls triple jump.

Reading,

Reading greens is one of
the most frustrating and
difficult parts of the game of
golf. Everyone seems to have
a different- way of handling
this situation.
Some guys will use the
plumb-bob method (I admit
to trying it myself), while
others will try to feel the
slope with their feet. And
then there are those of you,
who will always try to find
the setting sun.
One thing for certain is
there will always be some
other way you haven't tried
yet that will seem intriguing.
The other certainty is that
you will 'get fooled as often
as you are correct. I have
talked to a lot of good put-
ters, and .they always say
that speed is the most impor-
tant part of a putt.
How many times have
you read a putt perfectly and
not hit the ball hard enough?
So lesson number one is
speed. Without it, you have
virtually no chance.
There are many bits of in-
formation available to you on
the putting surface, so don't
ignore them. Is the putt into
the grain? Grain is the deter-'
mining factor on most greens
in Florida. Ignore it at your
peril. Bermuda grass has the


greens made easy


A~d


Michael Lamond
THE ZONE


most grain. Coincidently
most greens round here are,
you guessed it, Bermuda.
During our winter season
however, greens are overseed-
ed with more cold-resistant
types of grass, such as rye or
bent. These grasses are not as
broad-leaved as Bermuda,
hence less grain. In the win-
ter, putts will break with or
against the grain less than in
the summer. More Bermuda,
more break. Simple right?
Nope.
Alrighty then, we are on
the green and we have identi-
fled that there is, in fact, grass.
Grass grows in many different
directions with variables
which include local bodies of


water, slope and the setting
sun (of course).
Learn how to check the
grain inside the hole. Walk
right over to the cup and let it
know you are the boss. Look
at it. There will be an edge of
the hole which is not growing.
This is more difficult if you
play in the Dawn Patrol or
when the greens are over-
seeded.
In the summertime, it is
very easy to identify where
the grain is because the hole
looks half dead. If the dead
side of the hole is facing you,
you are into the grain, if you
are putting to the dead side
you're down grain.
Your putts will also be
affected by your stroke. If you
cut the ball or slightly open
the face during your stroke
your putts will break even
more. Unless you are Tiger
Woods, you probably open
the face sometimes, so play
for it by giving yourself a little
more room to the left or right.
Left handers should give a
little more right, while right
handers should give a little
more to the left.
And remember that into
the grain, putts will break
more than putts down grain.
'Ty it out and see if it helps, it
probably can't hurt. See ya.

Evacuation orders not getting to people who need them


Despite government and media efforts, the order
to evacuate reached less than half of the people
who should have gotten out of the way
of the storms that threatened the area.


BYBOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The newspapers listed them, the
TV stations showed them and radio
stations read them out loud.
Yet somehow more than half
the people who live in low-lying
areas in Southwest Florida said they,
didn't get the order to evacuate, a
survey being released this week at
the 27th Annual National Hurri-
cane Conference reported.
"You find this often because
there is a lot of inland confusion
about if it applies to them," said Jay
Frank, a professor of behavioral
geology who was hired to survey
people in Florida for hurricane
fatigue.
Frank said the response for
evacuation orders was more than
90 percent for people living on
barrier islands. The number of
people who evacuate drops to less
than 50 percent for people who live
within a Category 1 storm surge
area on the mainland.
"It doesn't surprise me, but it is
very disappointing," said Charlotte
County Emergency Management
Director Wayne Sallade. "It is all
about awareness and education
and something we struggle with
all of the time as we continue to
grow."
Frank said people only need to


look in the front of their phone
book to know if they are in a
Category 1 storm surge area, the
area most likely to be ordered to
evacuate as a storm threatens the
coastline.
"There's so much information
available out there, but for some
reason, we are missing some peo-
ple," Frank said.
Perceived threat
Sallade went even further, saying
the misperception people have is
they do not see the water near and
assume they are far enough away.
He tells people that if they live a
few blocks from a canal, the person
who lives on the canal will see the
surge only about 30 seconds before
they do.
"We have always been vulnera-
ble in Charlotte County. About 95'
percent of the people live in a
high-hazard zone. No matter
where you live, with few excep-
tions, water from storm surge is a
real concern," he said. "We didn't
get the water with Charley, but we
could get it next time and people
need to take these threats serious-
ly."
The number of people evacuat-
ing is typically related to their per-
ceived threat, Frank said.
"The typical reasons for not evac-
uating are the person didn't think it


was going to hit them or they
didn't think it was strong enough
to ,damage their home," he said.
Confidence in the strength of
one's home can lead to extreme
vulnerability in a case like Charley,
which was a Category 2 storm six
hours before it struck as a Cate-
gory4.
,The idea that three or four storms
wquld prevent people from evacu-
atifng later on proved to be un-
founded, Frank said.
"If it is true, I haven't been able to
find it," he said. "I can see how peo-
ple would stop paying as close
attention to these storms. I know I
did and I am interested in them."
Fatigue?
Frank also found there was no
difference in evacuation rates of
people who focused on the line on
many forecast maps that is the
center of the range of probabilities
the National Hurricane Center
issues in its advisories.
"The perceptions were one way,
but (the reason) most people
decided to evacuate was more
based on storm strength and their
confidence in their. own home
more than any other factor," he
said.
The survey is part of a post-
hurricane study of hurricane fa-
tigue and whether people contin-
ued to evacuate as more storms
approached the state and new
evacuation orders came. The
Federal Emergency Management
Agency and the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers are sponsoring the
study.

Hurricanes passed north and south of Venice last year after approaching
from the west and east, making evacuation tricky.


The study is. not complete, as
Frank's team waits for more money
from FEMA to continue to survey
people on the East Coast of Florida.
The final results are expected to be


released by the end of the summer
with all areas of Florida included.

Officials: One bad season doesn't make you a pro


No matter how many hurricanes you survived last
year, you need to keep a weather eye out for each
storm this season and prepare for the worst.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Those who went through
Hurricane Charley will never
forget the experience -.but
relying on their memories to
prepare for the next storm
could be dangerous, said offi-
cials at the 27th annual Na-
tional Hurricane Conference.
"It's very disturbing be-f
cause you know there could
be that one individual who is
coinparing apples to oranges
and could be putting their life;
in danger," Stacy Stuart, a
hurricane specialist with the
National Hurricane Center,
said.
People need to remember
hurricanes are large weather
systems that create their own
energy and have the poten-
tial to send damaging winds,
storm surge, tornadoes and
rain more than 100 miles
from their center, Stuart
said.
Charlotte County Emerg-
ency Management Director
Wayne Sallade said he has
been trying to educate the'
public about the issue for
years, and even more-so
since Charley struck.
Sallade has called Charley
"half a hurricane,'' since there
was minimal storm surge and
the size of the destructive
path was relatively small.
"If we had the surge we
can typically expect for a
Category 4 storm, it could
have been 18 feet," he warned.
"That covers most of Char-
lotte County."
Sallade even took his mes-
sage to Englewood to speak
with a group two weeks after
Charley hit, telling them,
"You had front-row seats to a
major hurricane and you got
in for free. Next time, you may
not get off so easy."
Error rate
Those who went through
any of the four hurricanes in
2004 whether they took a
direct hit or aglancing blow
need to realize they are just
as vulnerable today as they
were in 2003, Stuart said.
"We don't want people in
Florida to say they have seen
it all," Stuart said. "There is no
guarantee 2005 will not result
in a hurricane strike in Florida,
again, and the next storm
could be much worse than


what they experienced in
2004."
And the experiences
proved varied.
Compact Charley had an
eyewall that was only 10 miles
across. It was moving very
fast, had no storm surge and
little rain.
Ivan, which struck the
Panhandle a month later, was
relatively weaker in strength,
but had a 25-mile eye. It
moved slower, produced cata-
strophic storm surge and
flooding rains, and dropped
tornadoes.
Stuart and Sallade said
forecasting is still not,accu-
rate enough to tell people
exactly what they can expect.
'We put up the cone of
error or what I like to call
the cone of effect to show
people that they face the real
possibility of hurricane condi-
tions, and people need to
make their decisions based
on that," Stuart said.
.The cone is based on the
10-year average error rate in
the forecasting tracks of the
hurricane center, and its cen-
ter line that people tend to
focus on is only the average
of several computer models,
he said.
"A shift in a storm one way
or the other can be devastat-
ing, so if you were under the,
cone, you should have at least
been prepared'for the effects
of a hurricane," Stuart said.
Radical
This is one of the primary
reasons the hurricane center
considers its forecast track
for Charley very good, even
though the storm made its
late jog to the right just be-
fore barreling up' Charlotte
Harbor.
"The center of the cone
was off by 30 nautical miles,
but in Florida that meant a
90-mile difference on the
coastline," Stuart said. "While
good, the impacts were signif-
icantly different than what
most expected and prepared
for."
As for Charley's last few
hours of rapid intensification,
Stuart admitted the hurricane
center does not have the
skills to predict something so
radical.
"We were forecasting rapid
intensification because of the
sea surface conditions (the


90-degree. Gulf of Mexico),
but you typically see the
change take place over a 24-
hour period," he said.
Charley's central pressure
dropped 23 millibars, from
964 to 941, in four and a half
hours, something rarely ever
seen in -a .rricane. A.fl-
libar is a' unt of measure of
air pressure.

"We typically see a two- or

Repeat?
Sallade said he hopes peo-
ple have become better aware
of the limitations of the hur-
,'!Iie forecasts and prepare
early while keeping close at-
tention to weather reports so


they are not caught off guard,
as many said they were in
Charley.
"With television, radio and
the newspaper, there is no
excuse notto know there is a
threat out there," he said.
As for forecasting what
might come of the 2005 hur-
rictne season, Stuart said the
hurricane center will come:


out with a forecast in mid-
May.
"Unfortunately, not really a
lot has changed from last
year," he said. "The waters
will be warm or warmer than
last year."

Due to popular support, 'skinny black line' stays


Predictions of a storm's track are always
imperfect, but the head of the National
Hurricane Center says hurricane forecasting
is as accurate as it has ever been.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The often maligned skinny
black line at the center of a
hurricane's "cone of uncer-
tainty" is staying right where
it is.
It's what the people want.
National Hurricane Center
Director Max Mayfield an-
nounced the results of a poll
done in the middle of the
controversy surrounding the
line a predicted path of a
hurricane and people's
reliance on it.
Many had initially criti-
cized the line when Hurricane
Charley did not exactly fol-
low the track the center fore-
casted on its Web site.
"Within the cone of un-
certainty, some overly focused
on the skinny black line,"
Mayfield said during the
week-long 27th Annual Na-
tional Hurricane Conference.
"In light of the confusion, we
sought input from the public
to learn if we should keep
it ... The vote was over-
whelmingly in favor of the
line."
Poll results were culled
from those who visited the
hurricane center's Web site or
the National Weather Service
Web site.
About 63 percent of the
respondents in the poll want-
ed the line to stay.
Another 23 percent liked
the center's alternative tool of
providing a circle of potential
influence versus the line, and
the rest wanted the line gone.
"The uncertainty of the
track is always going to be
there," Mayfield warned. "We
have cut our error rate down
tremendously in the past 10
to 15 years. Charley's path
error rate was half of the 10-
year average. That is incredi-
bly accurate."
Diverging models
The hurricane center bases
its forecasts on a series of
models plus raw data to come
up with its best estimation of
where a storm will go.
The models for Charley
were very accurate 72 hours
before landfall, with two of
the models taking the storm
into Charlotte Harbor.
At 5 a.m. Aug. 13, all the
forecast models had the storm
heading west, deeper into
the Gulf of Mexico. At 11
a.m., only one model had the
storm heading into western
Charlotte County. It was not
until the 1 p.m. advisory that
the center forecast the storm
heading up Charlotte Harbor.
Because of diverging com-
puter models and the time
delay between when the data
are collected and when they
are released to the public, the
accuracy of the hit can be
hard to judge.
"By that point, everyone in
the path of Charley should
have been prepared to have
hurricane-force winds no
matter where the storm even-
tually ended up," Mayfield
said.
He said the relatively low
death toll directly related to
Charley 15 pointed to
the accuracy of the forecast,
considering how powerful
the storm was.
Mayfield also said the 2004
hurricane season is likely
linked to the well-above-
average sea temperatures in
the Atlantic and Gulf and the
change of mid-level ,wind
conditions. Those same con-
ditions exist for the coming
season, so far.
Sitting duck
William Gray, a hurricane
expert from Colorado State
University, said the 2004 sea-
son was inevitable.
"You can never predict four


hitting one state in one year,
but I have been saying for
years that Florida is a sitting
duck and they had better


watch out," Gray said.
He is not in the grbup that
blames global warming for
the rise in sea temperatures
and thus the rise in the num-
ber of hurricanes.
"We go through these
phases," Gray said. "Just look
in the past 38 years before
2004. There was one major
hurricane to hit Florida.


There were 11 in the previ-
ous 34 (dating between 1932
and 1965). Every year, the
odds are there."
His team analyzes hurri-
cane and weather patterns
from the past as well as fac-
toring in global weather con-
ditions to make predictions.
Gray said he expects the
period of increased tropical


activity to last another 15 to
20 years, and said Charley's
strike on Southwest Florida
doesn't lessen the odds for
another hit.
"From Collier County to
Tampa Bay, you get storms
which come out of the
Caribbean that curve right
into you," he said. "Ask any-
one who lived in the area 40,


50, 60 years ago how often
they dealt with hurricanes.
They will tell you: a lot.
Florida is still very vulnerable
and will always be so.
"But people keep moving
there, so they need to realize
the dangers."

OUR VIEW



Careful driving will prevent most accidents


W e know there are more cars on the
road, which means more people
behind the wheels.
Not all of those cars are heading north and
south on Interstate 75. Many of them are
going up and down lengthy Tamiami Trail, or
traversing State Road 776, which includes
Indiana Avenue in Englewood and extends
east on McCall Road and north on El Jobean
Road to U.S. 41.
More drivers mean more accidents, espe-
cially on S.R. 776, as a recent report in the
Gondolier Sun pointed out. The route loops
from U.S. 41 at Murdock to U.S. 41 in Venice
- 26 miles of highway that in 2004 produced
705 accidents, nearly two a day. Not only did


12 people die in those accidents, they also
resulted in property loss of $3 million.
State officials say the road was designed
for speeds up to 55 miles per hour. That's the
limit on much of the road, although it drops
to 45 mph in some sections.
So, what can we do to protect ourselves?
Careless driving is the cause of most of the
accidents, and many of the drivers involved
in the wrecks have been ticketed accordingly
- for careless driving.
Accident reports bear that out. Drivers
caused accidents while changing the station
or volume on their radios, or inserting cas-
settes or CDs. They were eating while they
drove. They were combing their hair. And, of


course, theywere talking on their cell phones.
In short, they weren't paying attention and
they weren't making good decisions.
And if they aren't, you should, though that's
no guarantee. The investigation indicated that
most of the accidents were rear-end wrecks.
The Florida Highway Patrol, which responds to
the more serious accidents, sees more rear-end
accidents than any other.
SMore traffic signals might help. So would
lanes in which drivers could safely slow down
to leave the highway.
It might help to reduce the speed limit, but
that needs to be coupled with more patrol-
men.
There are people who would like cameras


attached to traffic lights to record offenders.
Elderly drivers, whose reaction times have
been reduced, are in a disproportionately
higher rate of accidents.
Those older drivers need to be more care-
ful, but so do all drivers. Careful, defensive
driving is obviously the ultimate solution to
reducing the number of accidents on S.R. 776
or any other street, road or highway.
After all, each year there will be more cars
on the road. It was built, say Florida
Department of Transportation engineers, to
handle 60,000 vehicles a day where it is four
lanes and 90,000 where it is six. The road nor-
mally handles between 17,500 to 35,500.
And you think it's crowded now?


Lots of money


to paint a bridge


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


So, does the county have
enough money to take on a
new project like paint the
Venice Avenue Bridge? The
answer is that it certainly is
quite fiscally healthy and
should be able to do more
than it has planned.
After taking all its expenses
into account, the county
ended up with an increase in
assets of $107 million.
Let's look at how some
fund sources changed from
year to year; it is sort of fasci-
nating.
There are six categories of
revenue streams, with taxes
being the biggest. Ad valorem
taxes is the largest tax source
and accounts for 41 percent
of revenue. The county
brought in $40 million more
in taxes than the year before.
Fees from building permits
were up 25 percent, or about
$1.5 million. I think that
translates into a lot of build-
ing going on.
The tourist development
tax brought in about $1.4 mil-
lion more, which means the
beaches and arts should have
a lot more to give out and
work with.
In contrast, one area that
was drastically down was the
Community Development
Block grants, which are feder-
al funds that go to help day
care, affordable housing, new
parks and many nonprofits.
These are counted on a lot by
organizations like Goodwill,
Boys & Girls Clubs, Salvation
Army and many more.
Utilities fees are another
way for the county to bring in
revenue. This source brings in
more than $97 million, with
sewer and water having the
lion's share $68 million, up
more than $3 million from
the year before. Solid waste
represents'$22 million, also
up a couple ofmillion.
In the miscellaneous and
capital contributions area
there are some interesting
changes. You'd expect the im-
pact fees to go up, as they did
- about $2 million to $24
million dollars. Recycling was
up, as was investment in-
come more than $3 mil-
lion. Yet we made almost $20
million more in investment
income in 2001 than this year.
In summary it looks like
the county had revenues that
were up 6.7 percent over the
year before and expenses that
were up just over 7 per cent.
However, public safety, par-
ticularly the sheriff's depart-
ment, had an increase of


more than 12 percent.
One comparison shows
the county's debt in compari-
son to other similar counties.
Sarasota ranks well with its
per capital debt at $159 a per-
son, about a quarter of Collier
County and less than half of
Lee County.
It certainly appears that
fast-rising property values,
coupled with Jim Ley running
a tight ship, make for a pretty
good-looking bottom line.
How about painting the
bridge?

By's Crack: Our pastor
told me that all of us con-
cerned about whether the
church would survive
change should start offer-
ing currency.

The county had a nice cer-
emony for Rollins Coakley,
dedicating the park behind
the train depot in his name.
It is time for the county to
start the bid process for how
the station is going to get us-
ed. We are only a few months
from the Venice Community
Center being completed, at
which time the depot will be
vacated by the county folks.
Let's start the process rolling.

A joint meeting of the
planning commission and
city council was a bad idea
that is likely to upset the plan-
ning commission more. This
had every appearance of an
end run. I am glad it didn't
happen.

Terry Tritschler, longtime
Little League manager and
great teacher of kids, called to
thank me for my column on
"Where have all the kids

need to get more proactive on
ways to get kids involved'
He felt that Little League
should go to batting kids in
order of one through 12 so
that every child bats about
the same number of times.

For the last three years the
residents of Costa Brava and
Bella Costa on the island of
Venice had to listen to the
loud pounding noises from
the construction of both the
Hatchett Creek bridge and
the first two of the three
Waterfront nine-floor condo
buildings.
Now city council has
approved the rezoning of the
property on the corner of

300 owners from both Costa

Let the voters

Editor:
In regard to the issue of
height limits within the city of


an hour


Venice, particularly on the
island, most people say they
moved to Venice because of
the quaint, small-town at-
mosphere. A large contribu-
tor to the hometown feeling is
the low, people-scaled build-
ings.
There is a current building
code height limit of 35 feet or
45 feet, depending on the
zoning district, with an addi-
tional height allowance of up
to 50 feet by special excep-
tion.
The base limits must be
maintained without special
exceptions if we are to pre-
serve what makes Venice such
a desirable place to live and
work.
Now for the question: Why
should the majority of voters
and property owners of the
city of Venice support special
exceptions to change these
height restrictions?
An increase in building
height through special excep-
tions would monetarily bene-
fit the individual property
owner to whom the increase
is granted. Conversely, any in-
crease in building height
would cause a decrease in our
city's valuable and unique
atmosphere, and thus de-
crease the value of the major-
ity's property. The property-
owner rights of the majority
(those not requesting special
exceptions) would be lost
because their property would
lose value if Venice's unique-

LET'EM HAVE IT! DO YOU HAVE A STORMWATER DRAINAGE
PROBLEM IN YOUR AREA? CALL 207-1111.


Try the old-new angle on parking


It worked. No. 1, we used to have diagonal parking onVenice
Avenue; it worked and gave us more parking spots. People who
try to parallel park sometimes have a hard time because they
have a hard time turning their necks. The city of Sarasota has
diagonal parking the whole length of Main Street, which is
probably two or three times bigger than the city of Venice. It
would make sense to do this. It would add more parking to
handle bigger crowds and would slow people down. It's a safe-
ty issue, especially with people walking across the medians.
Number two, city council had a discussion of hurricane debris.
This is a very serious issue that could affect lives. They need to
take recommendations from the building officials, the fire
chief, the police chief, and go with them. We wasted money on
VINES and now I see we're wasting money again. We need to
make sure we've got a system that works and use it. Third, we
need to have some stronger ordinances to protect the older
trees that are already established. I see Sarasota County has
improved its tree ordinance; I hope the city of Venice can do
the same thing because we're losing our trees, we're losing our
animals.


Discouraged. It was dis-
couraging to read that Venice
had granted a five-year lease
extension to Sharky's. By no
means should code violation
be rewarded with an expan-
sion of its operation. Free-
market bidding for this valu-
able city lease in 2011 should
help solve this problem at
long last.
An option. Instead of so
many public meetings, they
could put questionnaires in
the water bills and have resi-.
dents mail them back in. A lot
of people forgot about the
meeting, me being one of
them. About 35-foot build-
ings and where they should
be: nowhere, how's that? Keep
Venice little. The north end of
town is getting to be too
much, way too much. If the
whole city starts going like
that, we'll be like downtown
Sarasota or Tampa. It's getting
crazy. Why do they have to
build high-rises to the sky,
especially with hurricane sea-
son? You'd think somebody
would have learned.
Roaring. Twenty years ago

Was very casual. Now it's a lot
of big-money, big-business-
man jets roaring in and out of
there. I'm 4 miles away and at
six in the morning sometimes
it sounds like a rocket launch.
The people whd live near the
airport must really not be
enjoying it.
A drag. I wanted to agree
with a comment about height
restrictions on grass. I like it
here because this is not a
deed-restricted community,
but at the same time I have a
neighbor whose grass is just
under the code; who leaves
just enough garbage out to
pass code inspection, and in
the meantime he's dragging
my property down. So I'm the
victim here, not the person


who's barely following the
code. I think they just need to
be a little tighter. Obviously
some people are like children
and think nothing of living in
dirt and mess and trash and
garbage, but other people
don't want that. I don't want
somebody passing up my
house because it's got no curb
appeal because of my neigh-
bor. Stop dragging property
values down.
Same story. I'm once again
sitting in a traffic pileup,
Venice Avenue eastbound at
River Road. I've been sitting
here about an hour now
heading toward River Road to
get back onto the freeway.
These things happen, but it
seems to me if they had an
officer at the intersection of
Venice Avenue and River
Road they could clear up this
5-mile traffic jam in no time.
No big picture I have no
idea what's going on, just sit-
ting around wasting gas.

council meeting at city hall
and it was just a done deal. We
all participated in signing a
petition not to have this put in
but it was just a done deal. It's
driving a lot of us nuts.
Out of control. Reading to-
day's Gondplier, I'm disap-
pointed in seeing the city's
completely, out of control.
Apparently the bureaucrats
feel they can do anything they
want because they are not
bound by the wishes of the
people. For example, these
backflow preventers: They
sprung these on the people
without any comment. They
made an imperious decision
the most expensive one
would be used with no
thought as to where, why, how
or when, or even if there's any
need for it. The second thing
is one-way streets in down-
town Venice with angled
parking: Haven't they learned
from Sarasota, which tried the
same thing and it was an
abject failure? Finally, a
roundabout at Harbor Drive
and West Venice Avenue:
What is this, Manhattan or
Center City Philadelphia? This
is Venice, Fla. Why don't these
bureaucrats come to the peo-
ple and out these proposals in
the paper so they can be com-
mented on in the light of day
as they should be?
Ripe. How do we get the
fish that have died from red
tide off our beaches? There
was a huge grouper on the
beach at Golden Beach get-
ting ripe and the odor was
pretty strong and we couldn't
seem to get anyone to get rid
of it along with all the other
thousands of dead fish.
Rascals. Would the paper
present a list of officials who
have consistently failed to
oppose high-density housing
so we can vote the rascals out?
Free day. It said in the
paper to call about the new
schedule. I liked Wedinesday
and Saturday much better.
Saturday's a free day; Sunday
you've got the paper and you
go to church and everything.
Saturday's a nice, relaxing day
to read.

with the person who said that
your crossvrd puzzles are a
little bit tiiy. I'm 10 years
younger tian the average
Venetian and I'm having a
heck of a tire working with it.
Please make it bigger.
Unauthojzed? In regard to
the backflor preventers and
inspections the city of Venice
is forcing tpon the citizens:
What authority does the city
of Venice have to impose this
upon the citizens? Was there a
resolution? Was there some
type of ordinance passed?
Was this giren public notice
or hearing?as this voted on
by Venice City Council? If so,
then passing this from a city
responsibility to a citizen
responsibility, everyone in
Venice needs to call their
council members and the
mayor and the city manager
and let theW know they don't
like it.


Win-win-win private accounts


BYALAN i. KUNERTH
GUEST COLUMNIST


Gov. Jeb Bush writes that
he was in Washington lobby-
ing Congress to get tougher
on Medicaid abuses in nurs-
ing homes. Well he should.
Florida is where the nation
will be in 20 years. Medicaid
pays for 60 percent to 70 per-
cent of nursing home stays -
too often for beneficiaries
who do not require that level
of care and would prefer
assisted-living options at
home or in less severe com-
munity settings such as regu-
lated assisted living facilities.
Floridians now spend
more on Medicaid than for
education, and the gap wid-
ens each year. There are no
trust fund reserves. It's a pay-
as-you-go program. Nursing
homes take a major bite of
Medicaid deductions from
workers' payrolls.
I suggest a federal solution
that would reduce nursing-
home fraud and provide
more state and federal mon-
ies for education. The sugges-
tion may save the president's
private Social Security ac-
count initiative in the bar-
gain. So far, it appears dead at
the starting gate.
The national perception
that private Social Security
accounts are only the first
step of dismantling the popu-
lar Democrat program dooms
private accounts before the
details are presented. Repre-
sentatives face elections in
2006. Senators deliberate
more slowly in the national
interest, so they claim.


But no congressman fac-
ing reelection in 2006 wants
to jump prematurely on the
bandwagon of a lame-duck
president whose foreign ex-
cursions in the name of
democracy have killed 1,500
and wounded 10,000 young
Americans so far and for
which no end is clearly in
sight. The losses mount daily.
According to some, the tru-
sades may not end in the 21st
Century.
Obviously, Karl Rove and
others of the president's men
have decided it prudent to
shift attention to a domestic
issue worthy of wrestling the
front pages and TV vignettes
from daily casualties in Iraq.
Although a tough sell, it
might be easier right now
than winning over public and
Congressional support for
invasion of other Middle
Eastern countries in the
name of democracy. "Save
Social Security" has become
the clarion call to the domes-
tic battle for the hearts and
minds of Americans rather
than pitching democracy to
millions of impoverished
peoples at the point of a gun.
But the time will soon
come that only a win-win-
win scenario for private ac-
counts will salvage the politi-
cal lives of conservative repre-
sentatives and senators who
choose to follow President
Bush to the precipice of the
Social Security chasm. Much
more clarity on how privati-
zation will reduce the bur-
geoning costs of Social Se-
curity must be provided. So
far, increased transition costs


have received all the atten-
tion.
Once again, Gov. Bush and
Florida have an opportunity
to save the president and the
neocons in Washington from
a fall from grace. Under my
suggestion, generational con-
flicts may be avoided or, at
least, restrained.
The governor can suggest
an option for young Amer-
ican wage earners: A percent-
age of accumulations in So-
cial Security accounts would
be allowed for private, long-
term care insurance con-
tracts. State-approved con-
tracts would cover care for
husband and wife at home, in
assisted-living facilities and in
skilled nursing homes -
whichever is most appropri-
ate and less costly under the
terms of the contracts.
It would be a win-win-win
solution for (1) reducing the
budget-busting drain on state
coffers; (2) cutting Medicaid
fraud; and (3) delaying the
day when Social Security
must take more from pay-
checks or reduce or delay
promised benefits to all bene-
ficiaries.
Participating taxpayers
would have more options to
live as well as they are able
without actual or contrived
bankruptcy. States would
have more funds for improv-
ing academic and technical
education of future taxpayers.

I feel that our planning
commission (and ultimately
our mayor and council mem-

constituents by continuing to
allow special exceptions of up

Why not put the question

Mike Miller takes an awful
lot of flak, mostly just for

Yet Mike and his wife,

Venice, Osprey.and Noko-

storm pool," otherwise
known as a "windfall pool" for
builders and wealthy insur-

up. When you force mobile
home owners out because of
high taxes, and higher costs in
the grocery stores and restau-
rants in the winter, then the
land we now sit upon will be
turned into million-dollar
condos. And you can bet

Yet now our insurance is

Grassroots efort takes

area aboard a 40-foot bus that doubles as a mobile
financial services classroom.
The Fifth Third Home ownership Mobile is part of a unique,

Equipped with the latest satellite technology, Fifth Third

Fifth Thirds commitment to
increasing opportunities for
affordable home ownership in
low-income, minority and new
immigrant families. Technical
support is being provided
through The Community
College Foundation, a nonprof-
it organization based in
Sacramento, Calif.
Stewart M. Greenlee, Fifth
Third Bancorp SeniorVice
President said, "We are asking
people to get on board the Fifth
Third Home ownership Mobile
so that they can receive one-
on-one financial counseling
right in the very same neigh-
borhoods where they live and
work."
"We encouraged all Tampa
Bay area residents to experi-
ence the home ownership
Mobile," said Brian Keenan, of
Fifth Third Bank in Tampa. "We
believe we are making an
important investment in the
Tampa Bay area community by
providing one-on-one financial
counseling and solutions to the
challenges of meeting conven-
tional mortgage requirements.'
"Misconceptions and
misinformation block the way
to the American Dream of
home ownership for too many
families," said PaulT. Peterson,
Freddie Macs Chief Operating
Officer. "Freddie Mac worked
with Fifth Third to design the
Home ownership Mobile in
order to help people get the
information, guidance and
access to low cost mortgage
financing they need to achieve
successful home ownership.
This launch underscores
Freddie Macs commitment to
working with innovative
lenders and finding unconven-
tional ways to help more
families become homeowners."
A self-contained classroom
on wheels, the Fifth Third


Home ownership Mobile has
internet-equipped mortgage
application and pre-approval
stations, computer terminals
for instructor-led or self-
directed home ownership and
credit counseling programs,
and access to comprehensive
financial services information,
including the free Fifth Third
Home ownership Guide.

Happy Easter

Special thanks to Pastor
Tom Hodge and Music Di-
rector Greg McClure at the
First Baptist Church of Venice
and the cast and crew for
bringing the meaning of East-
er to life with the passion play,
"Believe." People who filled
the church each of the four
nights had their lives enrich-
ed.
More than 100 members of
the church participated in the
production including Jose,
Betsy, Yazmine and Ruben
Velez. Jose is the batting
coach for the Venice Indians.
Happy birthday
Stephanie, Kevin, Ashley
and Matthew Romer traveled
from Illinois to Venice to sur-
prise great grandma Terri
Petretti on her birthday. This
vivacious red hat lady enjoys
life each day. She is very spe-
cial. Joining the celebration
were Roger, Arlene and Jen-
nifer Dooley. I met Arlene 24
years ago in the parent pick
up line at Epiphany Cathedral
School parking line when
both our families just moved
here from other states. We
blended and are no longer
friends. We are family.
Smell the flowers
When it comes to smelling
the flowers, Pina Pergolizze
goes a step further. This nice
lady made all the corsages for
the committee members at
the Epiphany Council of
Catholic Women Fashion
Show. The yellow and white
daisies added to an already
sensational event.
News from Japan
Award-winning artist Jeff
Cornell teaches at the Venice
Art Center and serves on its
board. In May, Jeff's work will
be on display and for sale in
the Land of the Rising Sun.
This is the fourth year Jeff has
been invited to feature his art
there.
For sale
Everyone who knows and
loves Rosemary Fisher is sad
to see her moving to Missouri.
Her house is sold and now
and Rosemary has her fruit-
wood top-of-the-line, 25-
year-old console piano for
sale. This treasure has a rich
tone and is tuned each season
after the air conditioning is
turned on. Rosemary is hop-
ing to find a special home for
this old friend. Call her at 493-
8251.
Cheers
My former student Ryan
Williams, aVenice High School
alumni recently graduated
from the Art Institute of Fort
Lauderdale. This creative
young man is working for Rex 3
Graphic Design Firm in Sun-
rise, Fla. Ryan's mom told me
Ryan helped designed the new
2005 Topps Baseball Cards.
When Ryan was in my fifth
grade he wrote a graduation
rap for our class that we per-
formed for parents and
friends.
Tradition
My Polish and eastern
European friends and Ijoin in
saying dzienkuje to Rev.
George Ratzmann and Rev.
Jacek Mazur for conducting
the traditional Easter Food
blessing at Epiphany Cathed-
ral. My Polish girlfriends, Bar-
bara Calamaras, Roseanne

and I are grateful for the

CAN's dental office is equipped to handle necessary periodon-
tal and dental work for AIDS patients.


Three quilts that decorate staff offices at CAN are part of a col-
lection of memorial quilts that is rotated regularly by volun-

to commemorate the lives of those who died of AIDS, these
quilts are part of the Southwest Florida Community AIDS Quilt

transmitted diseases and with
substance abuse. The net-
work sees 15-20 new patients
each month.
"We have 800 patients, in-
cluding 250 from Venice,"
Terry said. "100 are women.
We do such a good job of pre-
natal drug treatment, the
chances are the babies will be
born HIV negative."
The treatment of women at
CAN illustrates the impact
this place is having on the
greater Sarasota community
in comparison to other AIDS
treatment centers around the
country. Terry said that in
Miami, there is a lack of trust
by the women patients. Not
only are they less likely to be
tested, they are far less likely
to accept treatment. Many are
white middle class females
who may have contracted
HIV in college. Having to tell
their partners or their chil-
dren is especially traumatic,
she said. Two-thirds of HIV-
positive women have at least
one child under the age of 20.
"There is a lot of experi-
mental sex in college," Terry
said. "And there is no way of
knowing how long you can
carry it maybe 10 years.
There also are many older
men in the 70-80 age range
who contracted it during op-
erations they had when they
were 40-50. Others caught it
from not using condoms
while going to prostitutes on
the North Trail."
Prostitutes charge more for
sex without condoms, in-
creasing the chance to spread
the disease, she said.
Education is the key to pre-
vention. Hoping to stem the
spread of the disease, the net-
work has implemented a vari-
ety of community awareness
strategies. Primarily client-
centered, educational pro-
grams are offered to a variety
of audiences within the com-
munity. Programs generally
last from one to four hours. A
four-hour course is offered on


the last Friday of each month
at the clinic and is open to the
public. Class sessions also can
be scheduled out in the com-
munity on request. The clinic
is certified by the Florida
Board of Nursing to issue
contact hours for HIV/AIDS
education.
"We will speak to anyone
who will listen to us," Terry
said. "The idea is to stop the
spread, or to help people
identify the disease early on.
Older people want to educate
their grandchildren."
People With Aids operates
a speakers bureau, which also
goes out into the community


to make people aware of the
disease, prevention and treat-
ment options.
They don't talk about how
they caught the disease but
they do talk about how they
are dealing with it. Risk
assessments are provided to
anyone.
Anonymous testing is an-
other important service of the
clinic. The clinic offers free
testing daily from 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. at the network building
in Sarasota, as well as out-
reach testing in the commu-
nity.

Coordinator to improve

substance abuse and mental

health for community


STAFF REPORT

The Community Founda-
tion of Sarasota County and
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice have
provided financial support for
a full-time Substance Abuse
and Mental Health Policy
Coordinator position as part
of initiatives underway to im-
prove'the community's hu-
man services delivery system.
The Community Founda-
tion of Sarasota County pro-
vided a grant of $25,000 from
the Walter Haskins Fund in
memory of Stacey Haskins.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice provid-
ed a grant in the amount of
$20,000.
For over a year, the Com-
munity Alliance of Sarasota
County has worked to ad-
dress issues with the com-
munity's substance abuse
and mental health system
through its Substance Abuse
and Mental Health Stake-
holders' Consortium com-
prised of funding agencies,
mental health and substance
abuse providers, law enforce-
ment and consumer organi-
zations.
The Stakeholders' Con-
sortium is developing a com-
munity-based substance
abuse and mental health
plan which will create a
more effective and coordin-
ated service delivery, system
in the county, as recom-
mended in Sarasota County
Openly Plans for Excellence's
study of the system released
last year. The new Policy
Coordinator position will
.provide'staff support re the,.
Stakeholders' Consortium in
this effort.
A community panel com-
prised of representatives from


the Stakeholders' Consortium
and SCOPE's Mental Health
Implementation Task Force
was involved in the screening

WORDS WORTH


B3 Vicki Connell,
MA., CCC-A "
Certified Audiologist
Q. I would like to attend an
exercise class at my club's
fitness center, but my dizzy
spells have gotten worse and
I am afraid I'll fall. My
physician recommended I
get balance therapy. What is
it and will it help my
dizziness?
A. You are right to be
concerned about falling. Every
year, more than a quarter
million seniors experience hip
fractures from a fall and half
are unable to return to their'
former independent lifestyle.
"Balance therapy" or
"Vestibular rehabilitation
therapy" stimulates the body's
balance mechanisms by
guiding the patient through
repetitions of specific eye, head
and body movements. In
normally functioning persons,
dizziness is "corrected" by the
brain's ability to compensate
and eliminate it. In persons
with chronic dizziness, such as
yourself, the brain's
compensation mechanism is
not functioning properly and
needs to be "retrained" and this
is exactly what balance therapy
is designed to do. As a rule,
most seniors can expect
dramatic improvement in their
dizziness within four to six
weeks. Before attending the
exercise classes at your
clubhouse, I strongly urge you
to undergo Motion Sensitivity
Testing which will completely
evaluate your symptoms. Since
this testing replicates many of
the same movements involved
in many senior fitness classes,
this test is a great way to
determine your exercise
readiness. Call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing and Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to schedule n
evaluation.

FROM THE EDITORS OF E/THE
ENVIRONMENTAL MAGAZINE
GUEST COLUMNISTS

Dear EarthTalk: Which types
of household products are most
likely to cause chemical sensitiv-
ities? John Morgan, Somer-
ville, Mass.
Household products trig-
ger chemical sensitivities in
hundreds of thousands of
Americans every year, yet few
people make the connection
between their skin rash or
sneezing and the bottles and
cans stored under their
kitchen sink or in the broom
closet.
Common reactions to
everyday household
cleansers and other sub-
stances include migraine
headaches, asthma and
sinusitis, but more serious
cardiovascular, neurological
and autoimmune diseases
may also result from
prolonged use or lack of
adequate ventilation in areas
where these chemicals are
being applied. "Early warn-
ing signs are burning and
irritation of the sinuses, nose
or throat usually not with
Sa fever and itching or
sneezing," says Dr. Grace
Ziem, a public health
physician specializing in
chemical injuries.
Prevention is the key. And
removing toxic compounds
from your home is the strate-
gy. You can begin under the
kitchen sink by replacing
traditional choices with
"products your grandmother
bought," says Suzanne Olson


of the Environmental Health
Network. "Borax, vinegar and
baking soda will clean most
items around the house."
Olson uses vegetable oil to
polish furniture and shuns
any items with a fragrance.
"If any ingredients end
in 'ethylene' or 'ethand,' it's
not a healthy product," says
Cynthia Wilson of the
Chemical Injury Information
Network. She recommends
using scent-free and dye-free
laundry products, and
oxygen-based whitening
additives in place of toxic
bleach. Two companies that
supply non-toxic laundry
products as well as other
green-friendly household
cleaners include Seventh
Generation and Earth
Friendly Products. You can
shop both online or in
natural foods markets and
some supermarkets.
Synthetic home furnish-
ings can also trigger sensitivi-
ties. Foam, particleboard and
veneers can all aggravate a
variety of symptoms. And
sweet dreams may elude
you if yoi have chemical
sensitivities to items in your
bedroom. Most mattresses
are made from artificial
materials, and some beds
have chemical mold
inhibitors while almost all
have fire retardant. In order
to eliminate chemical
sensitivities from ruining
your sleep, choose a mattress
manufactured from organi-
cally grown cotton. Two
good sources include
Lifekind Products and
Heart ofVermont; both


offer secure, online
ordering.
If you think some house-
hold chemicals might be
bothering you, Dr. Ziem
suggests keeping a log to
help pinpoint the offenders.
The best way to find out
whether any chronic ail-
ments you may have are
caused or aggravated by
household products is to take
a simple inventory of the
home and its contents, and
replace synthetic products
with natural ones wherever
possible. By ridding the
home of some of these
culprits, you and your family
are bound to breathe
easier.

Men's health suffers due to lack of treatment


JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you help me talk some
sense into my stubborn hus-
band? He's 64 years old and
refuses to go to the doctor. He
hardly ever gets sick but last
winter he got the flu for almost
two weeks, and kept saying he
was fine and didn't need any
help. Now he's having a person-
al health problem and he's
embarrassed and won't talk to
me about it. What can I do to
motivate him? I'm not ready to
be a widow just yet. Worried
Wife
Dear Worried,
When it comes to their
health, many men like your
husband take the John
Wayne approach. They tough
it out! That's why men in the
United States die almost six
years younger than women.
Here some health facts your
husband should know about.
Gender gap
At age 65 there are 125
women to every 100 men,
and by age 85, there are 250
women to every 100 men.
Why the large gap? Many
health experts believe it's
about attitude. Our culture
has taught men that they
should stifle their pains, deny
their symptoms and wait as


long as possible before visit-
ing a doctor. Here are some
interesting facts that back
this up:
Men make half as many
visits to doctors as women
do for preventive care.
One in four men wait as
long as possible before see-
ing a doctor when they're in
pain or feel sick.
Men are less likely to rec-
ognize depression and more
likely to avoid seeking treat-
ment if they do recognize it.
Men are more likely than
women to engage in risky
health behaviors like
tobacco use, alcohol con-
sumption, unhealthy eating
habits, reckless driving, and
overexposure to sun..
Nearly 31 percent of all
men in the United States are
uninsured, and those who
don't have health insurance
are much less likely to seek
medical attention.
Health resources
If you have a hard time
getting your husband to see a
doctor, maybe you can help
him by gathering relevant
health information so he can
better understand the prob-
lem he has and how it can be
treated. There's a growing
number of resources avail-
able online to help men edu-
cate themselves in all areas of
health, especially those who
might be too embarrassed to
ask about sensitive subjects
like prostate trouble, impo-
tence and incontinence.
Here are some reliable Web
sites to assist you:
SNational Library of
Medicine (nlm.nih.gov): The
world's largest medical
library offers information,
resources and treatment


options on men's health top-
ics including links to govern-
ment-sponsored clinical tri-
als. You can also call (888)
346-3656 for assistance.
Mayo Clinic Mayoo
clinic.com): Offers amen's
health link under Health
Centers that features infor-
mation on health issues,
screenings and self-assess-
ment quizzes that test your
health status.
The American Urology
Association (urologyhealth
.org): Offers information on
enlarged prostate, testicular
cancer and prostate cancer.
In the past few years, several
new treatments have
emerged and this site can
help you evaluate the differ-
ent types of therapies.
American Academy of
Family Physicians (family-
doctor.org): This is a con-
sumer friendly site that offers
information on general,
reproductive and mental
health.
The Center for Disease
Control (cdc.gov/men):
Offers information on dis-
eases, health issues and
lifestyle risk that affect men's
health.
MedicineNet (medi
cinenet.com): If you need
help understanding what
you're reading, this site offers
a medical dictionary that
explains more than 15,000
medical terms.
Ottawa Health Research
Institute (decisionaid.ohri
.ca): This site offers a "per-
sonal decision guide" that
can help you make tough
health care decisions.
Savvy tip
If you don't have a com-
puter or Internet access to.


. visit these Web sites, ask a
family member or friend to
help you, or call your local
public library or senior cen-
ter for assistance.
Dividing family
belongings
Dear Savvy Senior,
Do you have any tips on the
best way to divvy up your par-
ents prized possessions after
there're gone? My parents, both
in their early 80s, are still living
but my two brothers and I near-
ly came to blows last month
when dad asked if any of us
wanted his old rifle. It's not
worth much money but it got
me thinking that if we're fussing
over this one item, how will we
handle a house full of stuff
when they eventually pass
away. Any advice to keep us
from killing each other? -
Pistol Pete
Dear Pistol,
You've stumbled into
some territory that has
caused many family fights,
even for those families who
enter the process with the
best of intentions. Also, you
may be interested to know
that it's usually the little stuff
that that causes the most
problems. This is because the
value we attach to the small
personal possessions is usu-
ally sentimental or emotion-
al, and because the simple
items are the things that
most families fail to talk
about until it's crunch time.

Seniors receive 3-month

extension to apply for


free medicati

STAFF REPORT

Florida seniors will have an
additional three months to
apply for free prescription
medication following an agree-
ment with Medco, a pharma-
ceutical benefits management
company, Attorney General
Charlie Crist announced re-
cently. The settlement provid-
ed eligible Florida seniors
with the opportunity to re-
ceive free prescription drug
benefits. This latest agree-
ment is designed to help
more Florida consumers ben-
efit from the state' s prior set-
tlement with Medco, extend-
ing the deadline for distribu-
tion of the benefits to July 20,
2006.
The free medication pro-
gram, the result of an April
2004 settlement between the
Attorney General' s Office and
Medco, will distribute generic
medication to citizens who
are:
at least 60 years of age
considered low-income
(incomes below 200 percent
of the federal poverty line, or
no more than $19,836 per
year for individuals or $24,973
per year for couples)
not receiving Medicaid
services
The Attorney General's
Office, in conjunction with
the Department of Elder Af-
fairs, completed an initial
mailing to 8,000 seniors to
inform them of the program.
Follow-up calls were com-
pleted this week and were
accompanied by a second
mailing to an additional pool
of citizens, notifying them of


.on

the program's expansion. The
longer time period and ex-
panded eligibility will enable
a larger number of senior citi-
zens to qualify for the pro-
gram. Many of these citizens
could be eligible for up to
$300 of prescription drug
benefits.
"With many of Florida's se-
niors already suffering under
the weight of high prescrip-
tion drug costs, this opportu-
nity to receive the free bene-
fits comes as welcome relief,"
said Crist. "We encourage all
eligible citizens to take ad-
vantage of the assistance that
this program provides."
Florida and 19 other states
had alleged that Medco en-
couraged prescribers to
switch patients to different
prescription drugs without
fully disclosing the resulting
savings from drug manufac-
turers.
Medco is changing its busi-
ness practices to inform
patients of their option to
decline drug switches and be
reimbursed for the costs of
drug-related switches.
Eligible elderly Floridians
are encouraged to respond
promptly to the mailed notice
and return a signed autho-
rization form to participate in
the medication distribution
program. A welcome package
from Medco will be sent to
participants that will guide
them through the benefits of
the program.
A copy of the original con-
sent decree is available at

General' sWeb site.

ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


First let me say that our
District 3 representative, Sara-
sota County commissioner
Shannon Staub, certainly
knows her constituency.
At the March 21 general
meeting of the South Venice
Civic Association, she kept us
anxiously waiting to hear
more about our subdivision
and what is going on in gov-
ernment that affects us. Her
45-minute report could fill an
entire page of this paper.
Shannon updated us on
state, regional and county
issues from taxes to water
needs, economic develop-
ment, local transportation
progress, then to our South
Venice concerns more specif-
ically.
When she walked into our
community center, Shannon
was laden with two large
shopping bags of 16 different
brochures for us to distribute
that night and from our office.
\ "They are quite expensive

Let the Venice Gondolier Sun

to print, but unless you have
them to read, they are use-
less," she commented.
You may now pick up from
our offices any one or more of
the following:
A maintenance checklist
for water-efficient landscape.

guide.
Sarasota County phone

Twelve simple ways to
save water.

An exhibit of biblical proportions


The Dead Sea Scrolls Displayed at Gulf Coast
Exploreum Science Center in Mobile, Ala.


BY SHARYN KUNEMAN
GUEST WRITER

Visitors to Mobile's science
center can see one of the
most important biblical exhi-
bitions in the world, without
flying over an ocean.
"I kind of got chill bumps
reading the scrolls and know-
ing the same words are in
the Bible," said Leon Maisel,
CEO and president of the
Mobile Bay Convention &
Visitors Bureau.
Many visitors expressed
similar sentiments during the
exhibition's opening day.
Maisel.noted that interest
in the scrolls has been tre-
mendous.
"We've received calls from
groups in Houston who
weren't able to get tickets
when the exhibition was
there," he said. "They're ar-
ranging bus tours to Mobile."
It's estimated that more:
than 25 percent of visitors to
the exhibition will travel
from out of state.
The Gulf Coast Exploreum
Science Center is the only
planned venue for the exhibit
in the Southeast. Exploreum
Executive Director Michael
Sullivan and his staff have
been working with the Israel
Antiquities Authority for
more than a year to make the
exhibit a reality.
"We sold over 40,000 ad-
vance tickets," Sullivan said.
"Everyone wants to see these
rare manuscripts that in-
clude the oldest surviving
text of the Ten Command-
ments."
i' ..-..Due to the demand, tickets
are issued for specific dates
and times. Sullivan suggests
that visitors buy their tickets
ahead of time and allow a
minimum of two hours to
experience the Dead Sea
Scrolls.
Before coming to Mobile,
the exhibition was in Hous-
ton where more than 160,000
people viewed the scrolls.
The staff at Gulf Coast
Exploreum Science Center is
confident the number of visi-


tors in Mobile will be similar.
Discovered in a cave by a
Bedouin shepherd in 1947,
the Dead Sea Scrolls include
some of the earliest surviving


This ancient goblet was
discovered in the area
where the Dead Sea
Scrolls were unearthed in
1947.

texts of the, books of the
Hebrew Bible, known to
Christians as the Old Test-
ament. The only book of the
Hebrew Bible not found


among the scrolls is the book
of Esther.
Considered to be the
greatest manuscript discov-
ery of all time, the scrolls are
comprised of the remains of
approximately 900 separate
documents printed on parch-
ment or papyrus. They were
written in Hebrew, Aramaic
or Greek between 250 B.C.
and 68 B.C.
Most religious scholars
believe the scrolls were cre-
ated by a sect of monastic
Jews called the Essenes, who
left mainstream Judaism to
live a communal life in the
desert near the northwestern
coast of the Dead Sea. When
the Romans invaded their
community of Qumran,
around 68 A.D., the Essenes
hid the manuscripts in near-
by caves.
Mobile's exhibition will
present the largest collection
of biblical scrolls ever to be
shown in one place at one
time in the United States. On
display will be sections of
Genesis-Exodus, Leviticus,
Numbers, Deuteronomy,
Jeremiah, Isaiah and Psalms.
Five of the scrolls have
never been shown outside of
Israel. The Psalms scroll,
measuring more than 33
inches long, is the largest
fragment displayed.
An introductory audio-
visual presentation provides


background information on
the scrolls.
Before entering the exhibi-
tion, visitors are provided
with a printed gallery guide,
offering key facts, a glossary
of important terms and topics
about special features in the
exhibit. A handheld audio
tour is offered at no addition-
al charge. The audio tour,
programmed for 18 stops
within the exhibit, enhances
understanding of the signifi-
cance of the scrolls through
the commentary of scholars
who explain their meaning,
history and controversies.
There also is a special aud-
io tour designed for young
people and families, featur-
ing stories by acclaimed
storyteller Syd Lieberman.
Listeners will tour the ex-
hibit with stops at 12 loca-
tions to hear stories, music
and sound effects that bring
the exhibition to life.
The main exhibition gal-
lery is organized into areas
highlighting the story of the
discovery and publication of
the scrolls, the Qumran
community, and the biblical
text scrolls. The last section
*of the exhibit demonstrates
how scholars front around
the world preserve and
translate the scrolls.
Some of the scrolls pro-
vide insight into' the life of
the Essenes at Qumran.


Pottery found in the area where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found makes up part of the cur-
rent exhibit.

Community Rule, original-
ly known as the Manual of
Discipline, contains regula-
tions governing the lives of
the members of the group
who chose to live commun-
ally. The strict rules of con-
duct they adopted for them-
selves formed the basis for
the observance of the com-
mandments of the Torah as
the will of God.
An admonition imploring
the congregation to remain
faithful to the covenant is
contained in the Damascus
Document. It also contains a
list of statutes dealing with
vows and oaths, Sabbath
laws, ritual cleanliness, the
tribunal, witnesses and
judges, and purification of
water.
The Aramaic Apocalypse
scroll addresses what will
happen at the end of days. A
key figure in this work is
called "Son of God," and "Son
of the Most High," terms that
are commonly used to refer-
ence Jesus in the New Testa-
ment. This scroll is often
cited as "proof" that there is
a link between the Qumran
community and early Chris-
tianity.
Visitors can also view
numerous artifacts from the
settlement of Qumran where
the scrolls were hidden 2,000
years- ago. These include
ancient coins, large goblets,
plates, bowls and cooking
pots. Highlights include a
scroll storage jar and a pottery

Abundance of books to keep you entertained


Ten Little New
Yorkers,' murder
mystery with a twist
STAFF REPORT
It happens to every kid at
least once on the playground:
somebody blames somebody
else for something that hap-
pened, and the not-so-guilty
party is left loudly protesting
innocence.
It's no fun when someone
wrongly accuses you of doing
something bad. Just ask Kinky
Friedman. In his new novel,
"Ten Little New Yorkers"
(c.2005, Simon & Schuster)',
someone's trying to frame the
Kinkster for a series of mur-
ders that he, of course, did not
commit.
It's been a long time since
Kinky and his Watson-like
sidekick, Ratso, have had a
case. It bothers Kinky some-
thing fierce almost as
much as it bothers him that
his cat, Cuddles, is gone.
Cuddles went somewhere
over the Rainbow Bridge, for
sure. Add the fact that the les-
bian dance troupe upstairs
has been strangely quiet, and
you have a recipe for a dark
mood in the City that Never
Sleeps. Looking for a little
change of scenery, Kinky
heads home to Texas and the
Utopia Ranch, where he
trades an apartment sur-
rounded by two-legged ani-
mals, for a trailer full of four-
legged old friends.
It might have been a good


trade, until Kinky gets a call
from his journalist buddy,
McGovern. There's been a
murder in New York, and the
dead man's wallet just hap-
pened to be on the floor of
Kinky's apartment. Trouble is,
Kinky has never heard of the
dead man before, and now
the cops are demanding that
he high-tail it back to the Big
Apple.
The same night Kinky gets
back to New York, another
man is murdered, and then
another, and another. The
trail of clues all point to a cer-
tain Texan who's in big trou-
ble. Ratso offers to help, but
his brand of "help" gets Kinky
in deeper. Rambam, another
old friend, is out of the coun-
try. McGovern can only offer
his apartment. How can the
Kinkster solve the crime for
which he's being framed? Will
the love of an angel make the
tribulations bearable? And
what ever happened to that
cat?
Part of this book is obvi-
ously true. Part of it is not. It
doesn't matter which is
which, though, because it's all
fun in this 17th Kinky Fried-
man novel. Kinky's alter-ego
is part poet and part detective
with just a little bit of bull
tossed in the mix. This is not
your mother's sweet little
crime novel, in case you had-
n't guessed; the crimes are so
beyond belief that they're
absurdly funny, and parts of
this book are about as un-
"PC" as you can get. You
might have the murderer fig-
ured out early in this book (I
did), but you won't see the
ending coming.

Kinkster? Well, maybe noth-
ing. Friedman fans will, be
shocked at the ending of this
book, but if you're a faithful
reader, you know that nothing
is as it seems in a Kinky
Friedman novel.
Pick up this book and get
ready for a crime novel like no
other. "Ten Little New York-
ers" should be a "10" on any-
body's list.


'The Confessions of
Max Tivoli': a different
type of novel
STAFF REPORT
I read once that, when
asked, a seer refused to tell
people when they would die,
because she believed they
would live their lives focused
on that date and not on life
itself. But what if you knew -
without a doubt that you
would only live to age 70 and
not beyond? In "The Con-
fessions of Max Tivoli" by


Andrew Sean Greer (c.2004,
now in paperback from Pic-
ador), Max knows. He's
known all his life.
When Max Tivoli was born
in September 1871, the mid-
wife whispered to his parents
that it might be better to let
him die. Max was a wizened
baby with liver-spotted arms
and a pronounced nose. He
looked like a miniature 70-
year-old man.
Max's parents loved him,
though. They were well-off
enough to hire a tutor and a
nurse, and Max thrived. When
he was a toddler, a former
maid noticed what no one
else had seen: Max was get-
ting younger.
Through his adolescence,
Max grew to be a man, al-
though his appearance said
that he was well beyond
youth; at age 16, Max looked
to be decades older. Exterior
aside, Max, at age 16, did what
young men do he fell in
love.
She was 14 years old, her
name was Alice Levy, and Max
was smitten with her. Un-
fortunately, Alice saw an older
man when she looked at Max.
Alice's mother, though, saw a
man her age, and she took
Max as her lover. When Max
tried to kiss Alice, Mrs. Levy
was horrified, and she
snatched Alice from Max's life.
Many years later, when
Max appeared as old as he
was (the balance being
achieved), an accidental
meeting reunited him with
his beloved Alice. Max knew
that she could never know his
real identity, sb he lied and
told her that he was someone
he was not. When she learned

the truth, Alice left Max, but
not before he gave her one
final gift.
Now Max is an aging man
in a child's body. He's mas-
querading as an orphan, and
he's been "taken in" by the
Widow Ramsey and her son,
Sammy. Max knows that soon
he will be a helpless infant
with an old man's mind, and it
sickens him. He's decided to
end his life before he ages to
babyhood. But first, Max pens
his story, so he can tell Mrs.
Ramsey and Sammy what he
could never tell them in per-
son.
Does this sound confusing
to you? It's not. Max Tivoli is a
wretched and sorrowful man
who always tries to live by The
Rule that his mother taught
him: Always be what they
think you are. That's some-
thing Max can't do, but in try-
ing, he makes mistakes that
plague him for the rest of his
life. Author Greer has a won-
derful, rhapsody-like way of
using words, which will draw
you into Max's life and his
world.
If you're looking for a novel
that's very different, pick up
"The Confessions of Max
Tivoli." It's an excellent choice
for experienced readers of
almost any age.
'Vanishing Acts'
a must read
STAFF REPORT

Somewhere on the market,
there exists a product that
attaches to your key ring, and
when you lose your keys, you
clap or whistle and the prod-
uct answers back so you know
exactly where you last put


everything.
Some entrepreneur was
really using his head when he
figured out that there's a need
for something like that. So,
what if you lost a sense of who
you were? When her father is
arrested, that's what happens
to Delia in "Vanishing Acts,"
the new novel by Jodi Picoult
(c.2005, Atria).
Delia Hopkins has the per-
fect life. She makes a living
doing something she feels she
was born to do. She has a
smart and funny 5-year-old
daughter, a fiance who loves
her very much, and a sup-
portive father who helps her
raise her child.
Delia doesn't remember
her mother very much.
Snatches of memory flit
through her mind of a woman
who smelled like vanilla and
apples, and who danced in
the kitchen. Her mother was
killed in a car accident when
Delia was 4 years old and now
Delia looks at her own daugh-

ter and wonders how things
might have been.
For as long as she can
remember, Eric and Fitz were
Delia's best friends. The three of
them did almost everything
together. When they were ado-
lescents, though, three became
two plus one. Eric and Fitz
competed for Scrabble wins
and Delia's affection. Fitz won
Scrabble. Eric won Delia.
Now, Fitz is a journalist,
Eric is a lawyer, and Eric and
Delia are going to be married.
And then the police arrive
at the door.
Twenty-some years ago,
when Delia was 4 years old,
she was known as Bethany.
That was before Delia's father,
Andrew, decided not to return
Delia to her mother after a
weekend visitation. Instead,
he drove cross-country from
Arizona to New Hampshire,
got fake IDs, bought a home,
and raised his daughter alone.
As Andrew is extradited to
Arizona to face a decades-old
arrest warrant, Delia follows
him and Eric as she wonders
if her mother ever looked for
her. She wonders why her
father snatched her away. And
she wonders: who is she, real-
ly?
I got this 418-page book at
3:30 one afternoon. Ten hours
later, I shut the cover. It's rare
that I'll finish a book all in one
sitting especially one this
hefty but author Jodi
Picoult grabbed me yet again
with a book that fed me little
bits of information, piece by
piece, until I was so wrapped
up in the story that I couldn't
tear myself away.
The Ha-Ha'
STAFF REPORT

Someone told me the other
day that the average man uses
2,000 words in a normal day,
while the average woman
uses 7,000 words in her daily
conversations. Which makes
you wonder: who figures this
stuff out?
What would you do if you
could not read, write, or
speak? How would you ask
for directions, follow a recipe,
or use the internet? How
would you tell someone that
they mean the world to you?
In "The Ha-Ha", the new novel
by Dave King (c.2005, Little,
Brown and Company), How-
ard Kapostash manages just
fine until his life is turned
upside down.
Sixteen days, that's all.
Howard was in Vietnam 16
lousy days when he was in-


jured by a bomb that he bare-
ly remembers. He was in a
coma for awhile, and he spent
months in rehabilitation.
When he got out, his leg drag-
ged, but that got better. His
head, though, was another
story. The bomb left him with
a crease in his noggin and a
big pink scar that stands out
like a neon sign.- Worst of all,
something happened, and
Howard can't make his brain
work with his lips or his eyes.
Howard is unable to speak
anymore, and written words
no longer make sense.
Back when he was in high
school, Howard was in love
with Sylvia. She was sweet
and innocent then, but while
Howard was a soldier, Sylvia
discovered drugs and booze.
When he came home, things
were never the same between
them. They're still friends,
though, and every now and
then, Sylvia leans on Howard;
like now, when she's heading
for rehab once again, and she
asks him to take care of her 9-
year-old son, Ryan, for awhile.
What does a childless middle-
aged man without a voice
know about taking care of a
kid with an attitude? Not
much, Howard decides, but
he reluctantly brings Ryan
home anyway, to the house
he shares with Laurel, who
runs a business out of the
kitchen, and two guys.
Usually, when I read a book
I like, I have no trouble racing
through it, but "The Ha-Ha"
was different, and I wasn't
sure why. Then I realized that
I dragged my feet because I
didn't want it to end. Though
Howard is mute, the story is
told from his point of view,
and he's funny and sarcastic,
and I was intrigued by his
intelligence mixed with his
inability to show it. The other
thing I liked is that author
Dave King gives this book a
Hollywood ending, but it's not
the ending you think it's going
to be.

Appointments are not neces-
sary at the the clinic. Call the
center to obtain a list of out-
reach test sites. Test results
usually take two -to -three
weeks.
If the test is positive, Terry
said theyhope the patient will
return to be told in person.
The clinic personnel know
they aren't going to change
someone's behavior in a 20-
minute consultation but
when they have the patient in
front of them, the odds of
turning that person into a
long-term survivor increase
dramatically.
There is a private waiting
room for patients to insure
their continuing anonymity
as they undergo treatment.
"It (treatment) has to be
comprehensive," Terry said,
"periodontal, dental and
physical."
The AIDS drugs cause dry
mouth, so that one's saliva
does not wash the mouth out.
That can lead to periodontal
or dental problems.
An on-site dentist trained
in HIV dentistry works with
patients to supervise oral
treatment, including crowns
and implants. HIV patients
experience more periodontal
problems than otherwise
healthy patients due to their
suppressed immune systems.


The network has contract-
ed for an infectious disease
expert to be on site 25 hours
each week and eight doctors
--workwith them. The doctors
benefit from not having to
handle billing or the training
of their own staff members,
nor do they have to see indi-
gent patients, Terry said. The
average primary care doctor
does not have the knowledge
needed to deal with AIDS pa-
tients, she said.
There is a dermatology
clinic at the clinic because the
drugs cause skin lesions and
other problems. While being
treated for those, patients
also can be treated for skin
cancer, Terry said.
Women patients can get
PAP smears at the clinic.
There is an onsite laboratory
to handle the tests.

"Women do not know how

offers counseling to sub-
stance abuse patients, lessen-
ing the need for clinic coun-
seling to one eight-hour
counselor. j
"They are -living longer
now," Terry said," so it is more
likely they will get back to
their additictions."
The cost of all this care is
enormous. To deal with ongo-
ing expenses, the network
conducts regular fund-raising
efforts, writes grants to foun-
dations like the Selby Foun-
dation and the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice, sells bricks for its
Cornerstone Garden and
plaques for its donor recogni-
tion wall. Volunteers help
with education and fund-
raising. They also are being
recruited to be trained to do


counseling and testing, a sig-
nificant commitment of time.
The local Starbucks outlets
provide coffee and pastries
daily for volunteers, patients
'and staff at CAN, Terry said.
CAN's two chief fund-raising
events are its April Cabaret
and its October CANDance, a
ballroom dancing extrava-
ganza that features national
championship dancers. The
theatrical community has
been especially good about
contributing Terry said. Asolo

"We look for all the sources
we can," she said.
Help also comes from
pharmaceutical companies
that make medication avail-
able to eligible patients. In-
vestigational drugs are some-
times made available in re-
search programs to patients
who lack other treatment
options.
Costs also have gone up
because of the network's suc-
cess. "One month of pills can
cost $1,500," Terry said. "We
had no clue we would be
doing maintenance."
It costs $16,500 to pay the
utilities, mortgage and insur-
ance on the clinic building
and $60,000 for the medical
team that treats the patients
for one month. Until a cure is
found, maintenance is the
next best option. National
HIV Testing Day will be June
24. World AIDS Day is Dec. 1.

Right to life is


not a moral absolute


REV. SUSANNE NAZIAN
RELIGION COLUMNIST

EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to a
printer error the last part of Rev.
Nazizn's column was not printed
in Friday's newspaper. Following
is reprinted the complete column.
The Gondolier Sun regrets any
inconvenience.

"Thou shalt not kill" is a com-
mandment common to many
faiths, my own included. I
don't condone murder, the
death penalty, genocide or, in
most cases, war.
I live in a complex world,
however, arid recognize that
the moral universe is a diffi-
cult place to navigate. Should
someone threaten my child
with murder, I might in all
conscience violate that par-
ticular moral good given the
opportunity. Few things are
absolute in this world. Yet,
"Thou shalt not kill" is a guid-
ing religious and moral prin-
ciple in my life.
If respect for life is my
guiding religious principle,,
there is a corresponding
political principle I hold
sacred as well. I come from a
family of politicians whose
love of the United States and
the U.S. Constitution is un-
questioned.
The checks and balances
among the legislative, execu-
tive and judicial branches of
government were:.among the
most important and carefully
crafted statements in our
founding.. documents. For
more than 200 years they
have served this nation and
its citizens as protection from
poor decisions based on
political efficacy or selfish
interest rather than justice.
Those documents have
also protected the human
dignity of the citizens, and the
human rights that safeguard
it. .
SFor me, there is no sacred
and secular. I am more of the
opinion that all is holy. Both
the dignity and worth of all
human beings and the com-
mandmentt to protect and
preserve life are great reli-
gious and moral teachings.
Having said all that, I raise
questions about the legality
and the morality of the
hoopla surrounding Terri
Schiavo.
It is clear from' the huge
number .of physicians who
have examiined her that she is
in a chronic vegetative state
from which she will never
recover. The only part of her
brain remaining active is the
part that controls autonomic
responses such as breathing
and blinking.
Her parents are under-
standable: They grieve the
loss of their child, and as long
as she is breathing, they can
continue to deny that all but
her physical body is lost
already.
Michael Schiavo is under-
standable too. He is insistent
on caring out the wishes of
his wife, speaking for her
when she can no longer speak
for herself.
I'd want my. husband to do
thai. I'd also want him to go
on with his own precious life.
I do believe that when all
options are exhausted and
when there is no quality of life
left, it is an individual's choice
as to the use of heroic mea-


sures to preserve one's life..
Living wills are common-
place these days, and are
honored by most physicians
and hospitals. The trouble is
that we don't think of having
those in place while we are
still young. Terri Schiavo
didn't.
Judges in family and
appellate courts have upheld
Michael Schiavo's request to
remove the feeding tube
keeping Terri alive. Without it,
she would die within a week.
The Right to Life move-
ment has taken the morally
absolute stand that termina-
tion of the extraordinary
measure of the feeding tube is
wrong. Its mantra seems to be
"preserve life at all costs,"
even if that life is no longer
able to be lived in any real
sense.
So, then, our governor and
now the federal government
have stepped in. They are
purely and simply violating
the U.S. Constitution and the
Constitution of the state of
Florida.
These documents 'are in
place to protect all of us from
one branch of government
intruding into the appropri-
ate province of another.
That's what's meant by checks
and balances. By putting one
particular moral position
above the law, these people
are in violation of'the very
laws that protect their own
dearly held freedoms,
I question, too, what seems
a larger moral issue. For
more than 10 years, a tremen-
dous amount of energy, tal-
ent, resources and money
have been spent to keep this
one brain-dead woman alive,
even when the evidence
points to the idea that she
would not choose this.
We live in a nation that has
the highest rate of infant
death of any developed
nation. We live in a nation
where children of our own
citizens have neither enough
to eat nor adequate medical
care, not to mention educa-
tion. Substandard housing,
poverty and the lack of edu-
cation greet migrant workers
in Florida each year.
Homelessness causes little
children to live in cars, or
worse yet, on the streets.
Huge numbers of minority
children spend time in jail for
simple marijuana possession,
when adequately funded
after-school programs stand
a good chance of keeping
.them off the streets.
This one case has tied up
the court system, already
overcrowded and unwieldy.
Now, it paralyzes the legisla-
tures when they might per-
haps be making laws that
actually benefit countless
people.
If we are looking for some-
thing for which we can con-
gratulate ourselves on being
morally upright, I suggest we
look toward the many needy
people in our nation, people
whose health and very life are
hanging in the balance while
we focus on one individual.
The homeless, the poor.
the ones without adequate
medical care, the children
who suffer in countless ways
- those are the ones who
need our attention. They are
the ones .with the right to a
quality of life and for them it
is possible. Why are we not
praying and crying for the
ones we might actually
help?

resources to help families
deal with the transfer of non-
titled property and list some
key factors to keep in mind.
Understand the sensitivity
of the issues involved for
each family member.
Determine what you want
to accomplish, and be sure
everyone's goals are compati-
ble.
Determine what is fair in

Savvy note
What sounds good on
paper can be difficult to do
when you're engaged in a
battle with one of your sib-
lings you never liked that
much in the first place. Here
are some specific solutions to
consider.
Divvying solutions
The best solution is for the
parents to talk things over
with their grown
children in advance and
write their intentions down
on paper, signed, dated and
referenced in their will. If this
is not done, and for most
families it isn't, here are some
other ideas to help you divvy
things up.
Use colored stickers to
identify your preferences.
Assign a different color to
each person involved. If an
item gets more than one
sticker, you'll have to negoti-
ate.
Take turns choosing. If
"who goes first" becomes an
issue, you can always flip a
coin or draw straws. Also, to
help simplify things, break
down the dividing process
room by room, versus tack-
ling the entire house.
Bid with funny money.
Give each person involved
the same amount of "play
money,' and bid on the items
you want according to the
value you put on them.
Have items appraised.
Battles can erupt over
whether things are being
divided fairly by monetary
value. Having an appraiser
assess the value of items like
jewelry, antiques and art can
help assure a fair distribu-
tion.

Aspirin
Dear Savvy Senior,
I had a mild heart attack
recently and my doctor recom-
mended I start taking an aspirin
every day. That's it, nothing
more. It seems amazing to me
that with all the new expensive
medications available today,
there would be other drugs that
we should take instead of a sim-
ple aspirin. Could you explain
how aspirin works and why so
many of us are being told to
take it? Heart Attack Harry
Dear Harry,
Funny how one little pill is
capable of doing so much.
Would you believe that back
in the 1920s, the advertising
campaign for Bayer aspirin
assured consumers that the
drug would not affect the
heart. Today, it's clear that it
does affect the heart, but in a
good way.
An aspirin a day...


help with:
Heart attack: If you've had
a heart attack, aspirin can
help reduce the chances of a
second attack and can
reduce the damaging effects
of a heart attack while it's in
progress. Those at risk of
heart disease should talk to
their doctor about taking
aspirin to prevent a first heart
attack.
Stroke: Aspirin can help
protect people from strokes
and mini-strokes.
Arthritis: Aspirin is some-
times used to treat rheuma-
toid arthritis, osteoarthritis
and other rheumatological
diseases.
Other benefits:
Researchers have found that
aspirin may also reduce the
risk of ovarian cancer, breast
cancer, Hodgkin's disease,
colon cancer, prostate can-
cer, adult leukemia and
Alzheimer's disease.
Savvy tip
Between 10 and 30 per-
cent of heart patients are
"aspirin resistant," which
means it doesn't have the
blood-thinning effect that it
has in most people. Ask your
doctor to be checked.
Not for everyone
Although aspirin may
seem like a wonder drug, it
does have several possible
side effects. Be sure to talk to
your doctor before you start
taking aspirin, who can also
recommend how much to
take, which usually ranges
from 81 mgs (a baby aspirin),
up to a standard 325 mg
tablet a day. Here are some
possible side affects of
aspirin:
Stomach irritation. Aspirin
can irritate the stomach lin-
ing and cause heartburn,
nausea and over time, more
serious consequences like
internal bleeding, ulcers and


holes in the stomach or
intestines. Heavy alcohol
users may be at risk of stom-
ach bleeding and liver dam-
age.
Ringing in the ears. High
doses of aspirin may cause
ringing in the ears and hear-
ing loss, which usually disap-
pears when the dose is low-
ered.
Allergy. According to the
Mayo Clinic, two out of every
1,000 people are allergic to
aspirin. Allergic symptoms
may include facial swelling
and sometimes asthma
attacks.
Excessive bleeding. The
same quality that gives
aspirin its cardiovascular
benefits, can also cause
excessive bleeding, including
the possibility of bleeding in
the brain.
Reye syndrome. Aspirin
should not be used for chil-
dren when they have flu-like
symptoms or chicken pox
because of the risk of this dis-
ease.
Aspirin and ibuprofen
If you're taking a daily
aspirin to help keep your
heart healthy, be prudent
about taking other over-the-
counter pain medication.
Some studies have shown
that taking the painkiller
ibuprofen, the main ingredi-
ent in Advil, Motrin and
Nuprin, may chemically
interfere with the anti-clot-
ting benefits of aspirin.
However, the painkiller
acetaminophen (Tylenol)
does not interfere with the
good effects of aspirin.

When aspirin was devel-
oped more than 100 years
ago, it was used as a pain
reliever for headaches and
other minor aches and pains.
Now, more than 20 million
Americans take it daily, but
primarily for its positive
affects on cardiovascular dis-
ease. Aspirin helps the heart
by preventing blood clots and
reducing inflammation of the
arteries, both of which can
contribute to heart attack
and stroke. Here are the

Soothing Spirits With Soup
Sn gspritstW.ou


BYJEREMYROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

Fishers of Men Bible
Church is a huge church.
Their church is so big it
spans the Venice area all the
way from South Venice to
Nokomis and out to Nocatee.
Their church is big be-
cause they believe worship
doesn't just take place inside
church walls. FMBC serves
the less fortunate as a way to
worship.
For the past year they have
operated a soup kitchen on
Colonia Avenue in Nokomis
every Saturday from 11 a.m.
to 1 p.m. It started in the
Nokomis Park Pavilion, but it
wasn't very visible in that
location.
Anybody who really need-
ed it couldn't see it.
Now the soup kitchen is
located at the Suncoast In-
dustrial Park parking lot

"They deserve
good quality food
and clothes,"
McCleland said.
"We treat them
as human beings."

Senior Pastor Jim McCleland
Fishers of Men Bible Church

across froni the Disabled
American Veterans building.
Farther away from U.S. 41,
Colonia Avenue is quite dif-
ferent from the waterfront
homes in Nokomis.
"I read that 10 percent of
all poverty in Sarasota County
is right here," Senior Pastor
Jim McCleland said. "We do
get some homeless people,
but mostly low-income fami-


lies."
Regulars come from the
neighborhood, including
workers from. a temporary
work organization across the
street.


; At first the kitchen would
only have about 10 people,
but it has grown to more than
50 in the last year. Big signs
stating "FREE" on them are
highly visible. Some people
drive through just to see and
some drop off donations.
The soup kitchen offers
more than just soup.
SBread and roasted chick-
ens are donated from Publix
along with doughnuts and
other food, depending on
what is available. Sandwiches
, and fried chicken are popular
items, but the kitchen also
has salads available for meat-
less options.
Leftover baby food from
the hurricanes was still on the
table along with some donat-
ed tomato plants.
Plenty of clothes and other
items are also donated to the
church along with the food.
The church gets so much
clothing that it can sort
through and save the best.
"They deserve good quali-
ty food and clothes," Mc-
Cleland said. "We treat them
as human beings."
Donations from area busi-


riesses and individuals make
the kitchen possible. A tent
and generator were also
donated to the cause.
The kitchen is more than
just a means of filling empty
stomachs., One success story
McCleleand is proud of
involves a man who just lost
his wife and was miserable.
He was able to turn his life.
around b asue he found fel-
lowship a the kitchen.
FOMBC believes that the
more fellowship that takes
place outside of the church
walls, the better.
By helping others and get-
ting other'churches invlovled
they are, practicirtg their
unique kind of worship.
"It's neat because people
from other churches get
together with us to help run
the kitchen," McCleland said.
Members of the church, Ma-
rielew Lord and Dee Tutcher
help out.
Lord prepares sandwiches
for the kitchen and she is also
an ordained minister. She
also happened to paint the
NASCAR Venice pig.
"Everything was donated
except for the vegetable
soup," Lord said. "Usually
HoneyBaked Ham donates
soup mix and a ham bone."

going to school to become a

minister, washes the pots and
pans for the kitchen.
The church was started in
1999 when McCleland moved
from Illinois to Venice. He
pioneered the non-denomia-
tional church along with his
wife, Lynette. The church cur-
rently meets at the fellowship
hall of South Venice Chrisian
Church at 2390 Seaboard Ave.
A new program at the
church called "Celebrate
Recovery," which starts on
April 8, will help people with
addictions of all forms. Rev.
Sarah Jansson is heading the
program that lasts up to 26
weeks. She said the program
is open to everyone and that
the program encompasses
addictions of all kinds.
"Our heart tells us to reach
out to the lost and broken,"
Jonssan said. "People need
support around them and
utlimately we need a lot of
help.
The good deeds of Mc-
Clelland are repaid at a very
simple price.
"The smiles and the thank
you's we get," McCleland said.
"Knowing that we can help is
rewarding."
