Pollution at the bays?


Local aviator says blocked Midnight Pass is responsible for'
increased silting and pollution in Dona and Roberts bays.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
It's hard to tell from aerial pho-
tographs taken by Stan Segalla if the
white and brackish waters pushing
inland around theVenice area are due
to pollution, red tide, an accumula-
tion of sand or a seasonal anomaly.
But one thing's for sure, :said
Segalla: Dona and Roberts bays did-
n't look like this 20 years ago.
He ought to know. Segalla's been
flying over Venice skies for two


decades. A resident of the area,
Segalla, now 80, is a flight instructor
in aerobatics and spin training out
of the Venice Municipal Airport. His
flights afford a bird's eye view of area
bays.
"It's the worst I've seen in 24
years," Segalla said.
Segalla brought. his concerns to
the county Department of Natural
Resources on Friday. DNR officials
borrowed his aerial photos of
Midnight Pass down through Venice
to give experts in the department a


chance to review them.
"Typipally, when we receive a
complaint, the department will
send someone to take a water sam-
ple," said Kathy Meaux, environ-
mental specialist in the water
resources division.
Meaux said she plans to contact
other environmental specialists in
the Venice area to ascertain if any
recent water samples taken in the
bays show an increase in pollutants.
"You can't gauge pollution from
water color. Lots of pollutants are
clear," Meaux said, adding that the

Pope John Paul II dies at 85 '
years old as world mourns.
BY JEREMY ROTGEN
STAFF WRITER i .


Bishop John Nevins, a founder of
the Venice Diocese, joined the world in
mourning and remembering the lega-
cy of Pope John Paul II, who died
Saturday. r ,
Pope John Paul II was 85 and had
served as pope since 1978.
.'WVith the death of the Holy Father,
we mourn the loss of our friend, our
teacher, our pastor, our Pope, Johnt
Paul II," Nevins said through a press
release. "I know that his passing is a
great loss to the world. I know his
death is a loss to me, for he appointed
me as bishop early in his pontificate
and he has been a source of surety and
strength throughout my life as a bish-
op."
During a press conference Friday,
Nevins talked about how the pope was
like a brotherto him. Diocese ofVenice
was the second diocese established in
Florida, and Nevins has appointed by
the pope as its first bishop.

Fifth annual Scrub Jay



5K race sets records


COURTESY PHOTOS
Among the winners of the 5K Scrub Jay Race are these young people, who finished in the youth
category. They pose with Laurel Schiller, president of The Friends of Oscar Scherer, and
Scrubby, the scrub jay mascot, portrayed by assistant park manager Tony Clements.


Runners of all ages leap forward from the starting line for the fifth annual Scrub Jay 5K Race on
Feb. 19 at Oscar Scherer State Park. The number of runners set a new record, with 410 regis-
trants including 64 children younger than 16, whose entry fees were waived under the new
Kids Run Free policy.
More than 400 runners entered the race, including 64 younger than 16; Lee
Wetherington Co. donates $25,000, bringing three-year total to $55,000.


The Scrub Jay 5K Race,
sanctioned by the Manasota
Track Club, has become a fes-
tive annual event, where fam-
ilies and pets celebrate in the
natural setting of Oscar
Scherer State Park, accompa-
nied by lively music, plenty of


food and the camaraderie of
fellow runners.
Proceeds are used *to
restore and maintain habitat.
for the threatened Florida
scrub jay as well as other ani-
mals and plants found within
the park. f


"We will use some of the
funds immediately for a badly
needed overhaul, beginning
with a major rehabilitation of
the 15 miles of trails in the
park, to include signs, maps
and three large display
boards," said Delaney.


STAFF REPORT


The fifth annual Scrub Jay
5K Run and 1-Mile Fun
Walk/Run at Oscar Scherer
State Park set records for both
participation and earnings,
said Laurel Schiller, president
of The Friends of Oscar
Scherer Park, who teamed
with Park Manager John J.
Roche to host the Feb. 19
event.
"The Scrub Jay 5K drew
410 runners this year, includ-
ing 64 young people under
the age of 16," Schiller said,
with runners ranging from 6-
year-old Erika Walker to 90-
year-old Ray Grills. "We are
pleased to report that we net-
ted $8,243 from entry fees,
and are especially gratified by
the $25,000 donation Lee
Wetherington Companies
made to the park on race
day."
She noted that donations
from the Sarasota-based
builder over the past three
years now exceed $55,000.
Lee Wetherington, president
of the company recently


named "America's Best
Builder," attended not only to
present the check but also to
participate for the third year
in a good-natured competi-
tion among Sarasota County
commissioners David Mills,
Jon Thaxton and himself.
The youth participation is a
direct result of the Friends'
new race policy, Kids Run Free,
which waives entry fees for all
runners under 16. This pro-
gram drew contingents of
young people from the Boys &
Girls Clubs of Sarasota County
and Lakeview Elementary
School, among others.-
Race director Russ
Delaney, a member of The
Friends of Oscar Scherer, said
some parents who registered


also signed up their children.
"We had one little guy who
was'so young that he had a
pacifier in his mouth and a
runner's number pinned on
his back."
"Even though dry weather
made the track slow on race
day, our runners did well,"
Delaney said.

Height ban



near Venice



Beach returns

Planning commission will consider the amend-
,ment one month after saying the height overlay
district for West Venice Avenue was too restrictive.


Fill the boot!


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


:Approval for the city's first
comprehensive ban on build-
ings taller than 35 feet is up
for recommendation
Tuesday.
Supporters of the new
height overlay district hope
Venice Planning Commission
members are more receptive
.to the idea than they were
during a workshop session at
the Feb. 15 meeting.
Members called the cap on
building heights along West
Venice. Avenue too restrictive
and asked the planning
department to move slowly
on preparing the code
amendment.
City Manager Marty Black
responded strongly that the
planning department staff
answers to his office and city
council -- not the planning
commission.
"Staff is not in a position to
respond to that (motion)
because an advisory board
says, 'Nah., go slower,.' Black
said in a Feb. 18 story. "We're
going to respond to the poli-
cymakers. That's citr council,
and that's what they're there
for."
A pair of height-related


topics will be in front of pln-
ning commission for recom-
mendation. Following their
vote, both will go to city coun-
cil for final approval.
The proposed height over-
lay district was what generat-
ed the most concern a month
ago.- Under the proposal, no
structure could exceed 35 feet
within the area south of
Barcelona Avenue, north of
Granada Avenue, east of The
Esplanade and west of
Armada Road.
Most of this affects West
Venice Avenue leading up to
Venice Beach. There would be
no height exceptions, and
developers would not receive
height credit for building over
parking garages.
"I am totally opposed to
that," planning commission
chairman John Osmulski said
Feb. 15. "It's taking away peo-
ple's property rights."
Conditional use
'The other height-related
action deals with how excep-
tions to height limits are han-
dled.
No longer would these be
labeled as "special excep-
dions," a category that also
includes drive-thru window
approvals. Height cohsidera-


Fire Medic Chris Ripo of the Venice Fire Department runs along East Venice Avenue at the intersection of U.S. 41 Bypass
while raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association to support the fight against neuromuscular disease. This is the
first time firefighters have been allowed to collect donations in Venice. Previous requests to the former city manager were
all denied, though current City Manager Marty Black said he doesn't know why. Commonly known as "Fill the Boot for
MDA," this is the final day, April 3, for firefighters to collect at the Venice intersections of U.S 41 Business-West Venice
Avenue and U.S. 41 Bypass-East Venice Avenue.


tions would be called "condi-
tional use" requests and final
passage would rest with city
council instead of the plan-
ning commission, as city
ordinances currently state.
Four out of five requests
for extra height have been
granted since 1999, according
to Planning and Zoning,
Director Tom Slaughter.
Waterfront on Venice Island
was allowed to build three
condominium towers at 105
feet each (the third has yet to'
be built), Charleston Place
condominiums at nearly 47


feet, a dowvuown building at
44 feet and one. at Roberts
Bay, but those developers
failed to file proper building
permits and the height excep-
tion expired.
The fifth height request, at
Fisherman's Wharf, was
denied. The building, pro-
posed for West Venice Avenue
downtown has been chal-
lenged by citizens.
Residents- may point to a
sixth building, Beleza on dithe
Beach, being built to eventu-
ally stand at 88 feet along The
Esplanade where the old Best


Western Hotel used to be.
However, this was not a
"special exception." .City
council actually approved a
variance on the building's
footprint to keep the struc-
ture shorter, >because zoning
standards do not cap heights
in that area next to the beach.
Fiore Di Venezia
,Rejected a year ago by city
council, a proposed multi-,
family development, on East
Venice Avenue returns for
approval. The advisory board
recommended the zoning


request a year ago before city
council denied the proposal
on the 5 acres of land zoned
as single family structures.
Located just,' west of
Auburn Road, the project was
rejected mostly because of
concerns regarding density,
Utilities, transportation im-
pacts and building heights.
The current proposal
includes changes that include
dropping density from 45
.units to 38. buildings limited
to 35 feet tall and addressing
resident complaints at neigh-
boring Auburn Woods.

CITY NOTES


City attorney agrees
on VGA's refund amount
A legal opinion has been
issued by City Attorney Bob
Anderson on the refund
check issued to Venice Golf
Association, which operates
Lake Venice Golf Club.
That $7,781.52 check was
the correct amount.
VGA attorney Dan Boone
returned the check and stated
there are additional refunds
needed from the city. City
Manager Marty Black
responded by saying he'll just
credit the golf course's
reclaimed water account and
refer the matter to Anderson.
Boone contends cost to
operate and maintain the
water pumps installed in 2002
to irrigate the golf course
should be covered by the city
because the lease agreement
with Venice the VGA is on
city-owned land states the
city would provide pumps
and water pressure needed
for irrigation. Estimates pro-
vided by Boone list the cost at
just more than $89,000 since
2002.
Anderson, however, agrees
with the city manager that
because VGA asked to install
its own water pumps, this
freed the city of the contrac-
tual obligation. A meeting
with staff to review legal
options was requested by
Anderson.

A pair of city residents,
Heather and Craig
McCullough, pointed out that
it is not city council's.job to
become a historical preserva-
tion society using tax dollars
for these types of projects.
City Manager Marty, Black
estimates total costs on relo-
cation and restoration of the
1896 home could be as high
as $1 million.
As for the move itself, esti-
mates have that cost around
$80,000, but the contract has
not been put out to bid.
"If indeed there is a
groundswell of support for
this particular endeavor, then
interested parties should
have no trouble raising suffi-'
cient funds for the project,"
they wrote.
Council did ask for private
investors to be considered
first, but Black reported that
nearly every deal fell through.
The home's new owners
offered the house, at 811
Laguna Drive, to the city
because they planned to
demolish it and build a new
house.
The Venice Area Historical
Society is planning a tour of
historic homes in April as a
fund-raiser for the project. A
donation fund also has been
opened at Gulf Coast
Community Foundation. of
Venice, and the new owners
have verbally committed to
donate costs they would've
spent to demolish the house.


Future land use patterns
This month's topics of dis-
cussion at Envision Venice
meetings are land use, annex-
ation, redevelopment, hous-
ing, economic development
and historic preservation.
Due to the expectation
that attendance will be
greater than usual, an addi-
tional meeting has been
scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday,
April 4, at the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce, 597
U.S. 41 Business.
Other meetings will take
place at:
Tuesday, April 5, at 6 p.m.
at Church of the Nazarene,
1635 E. Venice Ave.
Wednesday, April 6, at 6
p.m. at the Salvation Army,
1051 Abee Farm Road.
Thursday; April' 7, 'at 2
p.m. at Village On The' Isle,:
Renaissance Room, 920 U.S.
41 Business.
Envision Venice is the
.process by which the city
works to revise its state-man-
dated comprehensive plan,
which determines the city's
future look and public ser-
vices.
Resident suggestions from
these meetings will be used to
form the new plan.

A Southwest Florida
Expressway Authority that
could build four new toll
lanes in the middle of
Interstate 75 is on the verge of
being approved in the Florida
Legislature and signed into
law by Gov. Jeb Bush.
The proposed four-lane
project would extend north
from Naples to the Southwest
Florida International Airport
in Fort Myers, and give
motorists the option of either
driving toll free on the exist-
ing 1-75 lanes or paying to
take express lanes that have
only a handful of exits.
"I'm always late to -the air-
port," Rep. Mike Davis, R-
Naples, the bill's author, told
the Pelican Press. "Given the
amount of 1-75 traffic we have
in Collier and Lee counties, I
would rather pay a user fee
and take the express lanes.
This has taken three years
and a lot of hard work to put
together. I've had to learn a
great deal."
If the Davis bill is signed
into law, Charlotte County
would be allowed to join the
Expressway Authority at
some future date. "At
Charlotte County's request,"
he said, "a clause was added.
A positive vote by Collier and
Lee counties would allow
Charlotte in."
Sarasota County is not
involved in the project.
While the subject has
come up before, the Sarasota
County Commission has
never received a full report or
taken a policy position on
whether it warns to paritci-
pate in a new Southwest
Florida agency that could sell
construction bonds and build
toll roads.
User fee
Political leaders in Collier
and Lee counties have
requested that Congress
approve additional north-
bound and southbound 1-75
lanes. The four that currently
pass through both counties
are overwhelmed by both
through and local traffic,


especially during the tourist
season.
Davis recently met with
U.S. Rep. Don Young, R.-
Alaska, chairman of the
House Transportation and
Infrastructure Committee,
%bout 1-75 congestion and his
proposal to build four toll
lanes in the green median
that now separates north-
bound and southbound traf-
fic.
"He was delighted with the
proposal and said committee
members want to reward
those communities that help
themselves," Davis said.
"There are not enough feder-
al and state dollars to meet all
our transportation needs,
and I hate to raise taxes. This
involves a user fee."
Last summer, the Sarasota
County Commission briefly
considered the expressway
proposal when commission
chairman Paul Mercier dis-
cussed pulling Sarasota
County out of the Southwest
Florida Regional Planning
Council and rejoining the
Tampa Bay Regional Planning


"There are not enough
federal and state dol-
lars to meet all our
transportation needs,
and I hate to raise
taxes. This involves a
user fee"
Rep. Mike Davis,
R-Naples,
the bill's author


Council.
Sarasota County is the
northernmost member of the
Southwest Regional Planning
Council, and several commis-
sioners have indicated it
would be easier to address
phosphate mining issues
with neighboring counties to
the north.
Davis left the door open for
future involvement.'
He said this week, "I would
love to sit down with the
Sarasota County commis-
sioners when this session is
over and explain how the
authority will work. Then they
can decide whether they
want to participate."

School board delves into policy rewrites


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


While students were on
spring break, school adminis-
trators were putting the finish-
ing touches on a host of pro-
posed school policy changes.
On April 5 the Sarasota
County School Board will put
out for public comment a
slew of new or revised poli-
cies affecting students. The
rules are not new, said school
officials, but bring out-of-
date policies into alignment
with existing practices.
The policies reflect recom-
mendations by the district's
policy consultant, Edu-
cational Management
Consultant Services, which,
in turn, reflect current best
practices within the district
and updated Florida statutes,
said Lori White, associate
superintendent for instruc-
tional support services.-
The public will have
another month to comment
on the proposed policies.


Below is a recap of recom-
mended policy changes, as
well as a good reminder for'
parents unsure of changing
school rules:
Holding-their calls
Chief among the policies
out for comment is a rule to
outlaw the use of personal
telephones or other commu-
nication devices by students
during school hours.
The two-sentence pro-
posed policy stipulates that if
"personal telephones ring,
vibrate or are used during the
school day, telephones will be
subject to confiscation to be
returned only to a parent or
guardian."
"Basically, students can
have them, but they can't use
them," said White. "They can
use them in an emergency, if
authorized by an adult. The
message we're giving them is
you may not use them during
the day. It's been part of the
student code of conduct for
the past couple of years."


Drivers license
Also out for public com-
ment will be a slightly revised
policy on vehicle use by stu-
dents. The current policy
allows youths to drive an
automobile to school with the
written consent of a parent or
legal guardian and a written
agreement signed by the stu-
dent to comply with school
rules.
Proposed revisions require
students to prove they pos-
sess a valid drivers license.
Students are not allowed to
drive motorcycles on cam-
pus.
The revised policy further
authorizes not only the prin-
cipal, but also his or her
designee to accept written
consent forms and agree-
ments and to restore the priv-
ilege of bringing a vehicle to
school.
Formerly the responsibility
of the superintendent, the
new policy would leave it to
each school to develop guide-
lines for autos on campus.


Drugs
The illicit drug-use policy
gets an overhaul in a revised
policy out for public com-
ment. Gone is mention of the
Drug Free Workplace Act
regarding school employees,
and the district's Employee
Assistance Program for those
who request it or go afoul of
the law. Both programs remain
in place but are removed from
policy language.
The most substantive
chance makes it illegal to be
in possession or under the
influence of illegal mood- or
behavior-modifying sub-
stances while on school prop-
erty, at school-sponsored
activities or on school trips
involving students.
New language gives school
officials instructions to take
direct and immediate action
against those under the influ-
ence. Specifically, individuals
with an alcoholic beverage
will be required to leave the
premises immediately, for-
feiting admission.


The policy also is designed
to send a message to nonstu-
dents and adults who attend
school events, White said.
Even a student who enters
a school event sober, but
leaves and returns later under
the influence shall be
deemed a trespasser, states a
draft of the policy.
While on school trips, alco-
holic beverages in possession
of minors will be seized.
Students and adults in posses-
sion maybe sent back or other
appropriate action taken.
Misbehavin'
Teachers wield consider-
able power over disruptive
students in the classroom
under proposed school rules.
Under the new policy, a
principal may not return a
student to class without the
teacher's consent, unless a
committee created to review
such cases overrules the
teacher. The committee
would have five days to ren-
der a decision.


Each school is required to
establish a Placement Review
Committee made up of two
teachers and one other
school employee selected by
the principal.
Ain't misbehavin'
Another policy revision
makes it easier for expelled
students to return early to the
classroom.
A policy on expulsion is
being revised to account for
good behavior, a practice
already in place, said White.
The proposed policy states,
"If, in the opinion of the alter-
native school staff, the activi-
ties of the expelled student
while enrolled in an alternative
program and the merits of the
re-entry plan warrant consid-
eration by the school board for
allowing the student to return
to a regular schools, the super-
intendent shall submit a rec-
omimendation to the school
board for transfer of the stu-
dent to a regular school during
such abeyance."


Florida legislature mid-session report


BYJERRYWOELFEL
CORRESPONDENT

The Terri Schiavo situa-
tion caused a great deal of
turmoil, conflict and anger
as a result of differing ideals.
And even though .most
politicians involved in the
case wanted the government
and the courts to get
involved, polls have found
that most Floridians felt the
.courts were right to leave the
decision in the hands of
Michael Schiavo.
Long hours and days and
much legislative action were
devoted 'by the Florida
Legislature and the gover-
nor's office to try to inter-
vene, yet the general public
has said it does not feel
either should have done so.
Bottom line: Government
should not get involved.
Now that Terri Schiavo has
died, will the actions and
words expressed by a few


cause the members to inter-
act differently with their col-
leagues? The truth .is, of
course it will. It's. human
natitre: If you are threatened,
verbally abused, attacked for
hours and days, and your
moral and legal opinions
questioned by your peers
and others, your future inter-
action with those people will
change.
So, how well' will the
members work together on
those issues that we identi-
fied as important to us local-
ly and to us as Floridians in
general? Since polls show the
majority of the public didn't
want them to get involved in\
the Schiavo situation, will
they listen to us, their con-
stituents,, now- on other,
issues?
As you might remember,
the issues were health care,
education and transporta-
tion. So far it appears the
Legislature is actually doing
a good job of addressing the


budget, health care, educa-
tion and transportation
issues that we identified.,

Keeping track
For those who may be
curious or interested and
would like to check on daily
progress, you have several
options to follow the
progress or lack of
progress, as some say.
Online service is great; go
to Online Sunshine at:
www.leg.state.fl.us/Welcome
/index.cfm, and everything
is at your fingertips if you
have Internet access. Those
who do not can turn on their
television and watch Capitol
Update onWFSU-ITy or their
radio and listen to Capitol
Report onl WSU-FNI.
Over the next few weeks of
the legislative session the
budget will be passed and all
of the items identified as "of
interest" will be affected.
My next article will start
on "understanding and


working with the system" -
since very few of us have
been involved this year to
show just how easy it is and
how to appropriately affect
the system, and thus our
local community.
First in line will be
"Politics 101": what the
terms are, how to address,
your legislative members
and, most important, the
timing in which you have to
accomplish this.
Currently, Sarasota County
has some very highly paid
lobbyists on its payroll. Are
they effective? We will see,
The last time I inquired as
to the names of the lobbyists
and asked our delegation
members and staff if they
realized the county was
being represented by these
individuals,, very few even
knew they represented our
county.
Maybe we need to do a
better job of representing
ourselves.

brownish water around keys
and islands could also be
caused by algae or seaweed.
As for the white water in
Segalla's photos, some of that
is sea foam, and the rest of it
could be the accumulation of
sand in intracoastal waters,
said Meaux.
In 2003 an environmental
study of the entire Cow Pen
watershed, which drains into
Shakett Creek and empties
into Dona Bay, found the
water quality was good,
Meaux said. The Cow Pen
Slough Basin is large, covering
close to 50,000 acres. It runs
from the Dona-Roberts Bay
area up north through
Sarasota County east of
Interstate 75, and ends in the
southern portion of Manatee
County.
Impassable
Segalla claims the shifting
sands that years ago made
Midnight Pass impassable are
keeping ocean waters from
flushing south through Casey
Key's intracoastal waters and.
out the Venice jetty.
"When high tides used to
come down through the
pass," said Segalla, "they
would mix with intracoastal
waters and help the outgoing
tide flush out Dona and
Roberts bays."
As years pass, says Segalla,
white and brackish water
keeps pushing further and
further into the bays. He
claims the lack of current out
through the Venice jetties is
one reason the discolored
waters tend to cling to the
shoreline, moving slowly up
and down the Venice beach
area.
"We need to get Midnight
Pass open again to help flush
out the coves. Between the
red tide and sewage from res-
idences along the intracoastal
waters off Casey Key, mana-
tees. don't have a chance.
That's why manatees are
dying. They can't live in that
water," Segalla said.
Old news
An open inlet existed at the
north end of Casey Key for


many years until December
1983 when shifting sands
clogged the pass for good.
Midnight Pass has been a
perennial issue with Sarasota
County officials ever since.
In the early 1980s the pass
migrated north to Siesta Key,
threatening two homes.
Homeowners requested, and
received, an emergency per-
mit to cut a new inlet further
south and use the material to
fill the coastline in front of the
endangered homes.
"It took only one tide cycle
to close up the freshly cut
inlet," said Laird Wreford,
coastal resources manager for
Sarasota County Department
of Natural Resources.
Over the next few months
the county made four more
attempts to cut a new inlet.
Each time shifting sands
closed the pass.
"We finally ran out of
resources. It's been closed
ever since," Wreford said.
Today, it's all one continu-
ous land mass connecting
Casey Key to Siesta Key.
New hope
Over the years various
panels, committees and
stakeholder groups have got-
ten together under the
authority of the county to
look at the issue and deter-
mine if Midnight Pass should
be reopened.
A formal attempt, begun in
1989, to obtain a joint coastal
permit to open the pass failed
when the state denied the
county a permit in 1991.
The permit was denied for
a variety of reasons in a
lengthy response, said
Wreford.
"Basically, the state said
there wasn't adequate water
quality and mitigation data,"
Wreford said.
In 2004 county commis-
sioners voted 4-1 to give
another run at opening
Midnight Pass. They hired
Erickson Coastal Engineers to
plan, design and pursue per-
mits required to open the
pass.
Additional feasibility stud-
ies were completed to look at


THE WEATHER


what should be done, Wreford
said.
A few months ago the state
sent back a request for infor-.
mation (RFI) on the project,
Wreford said.
"We're close to sending in
our first response," Wreford
said.
It isn't uncommon for the
state to request two or three
RFIs, saidWreford, noting that
seven different state and fed-
eral agencies review the joint
coastal permit application.
"We're anticipating a sever-
al-year process. We could get
the permit a year from now, or
three years from now. It
depends on how much addi-
tional information state and
federal agencies require,"
Wreford said.
"Lots of people feel that
opening the pass would help.
flush out the accumulation of
pollutants in the bay," he said.

"Inasmuch as John Paul II
served the Lord faithfully and
successfully throughout his
long life, may he now hear
from Christ the same words
that Christ uses to address the
loyal steward in his parable of


the silver pieces: 'Well done!
You are an industrious and
reliable servant. Since you
were dependable in a small
matter, I will put you in
charge of even larger affairs.
Come, share your master's
joy!' (Matt. 25:21). May he rest
in peace," Nevins said.

a news release. '"At this time, it
is unclear what ,happened
after takeoff."
Deanna's body was recov-
ered the night of the crash.
The body of James Eaton
was found at about 3 p.m.
Friday in the plane's fuselage.
The plane crashed in about
25 feet of water, a mile west of
the Venice Municipal Fishing
Pier.
One-foot visibility in the
water hampered the search,
which. included the U.S.
Coast Guard, Federal
Aviation Administration,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission, the Sarasota
County Sheriffs SURF Team
Divers and Marine Patrol
units, as well as marine and
dive units from Sarasota
Police Department, Venice

"We had no idea where the
main wreckage was," Bums
said.


said the weather Wednesday
night was clear.
The AC-11 single-engine
plane landed at Venice
Municipal Airport, where it
let off the passenger, who was
not identified.
. "I know they had another
individual on board prior to
that," said Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office Capt. Steve
Bums.
The plane then took off
again, crashing into the Gulf
about a mile from the small
airport. It is not known where
the Eatons were heading,
because the Venice airport is
not a controlled facility and
does not require a flight plan.
However, the plane, a single-

worker carry debris from a single engine plane crash into the
USCG Auxiliary station in Nokomis.


Last contact
According to the National
Transportation Safety Board,
the last communication with
the pilot occurred with


Tampa International Airport,
three hours before the crash.
No mayday transmissions
were reported, a U.S. Coast
Guard report said. Observers


engine Commander 114B,
reportedly was going to
Sarasota.
Witnesses said the plane
hit the water nose-first.
John Lovell, an investigator
for the NTSB, said the crash is
still under investigation.
"We're in the data collec-
tion mode," Bums said.
Trouble
Former World War II
bomber pilot John Vauzanges
doesn't know what may have
happened to cause the
Eatons' crash, but he had a
harrowing experience of his
own at the airport not long
ago when he and a young
pilot took off from the airport


in a single-engine plane.
"I was flying co-pilot. We
took off and climbed over the
gulf and the engine conked
out," Vauzanges said. "I knew
exactly what had to be done.
We made a U-turn and glided
back to the airport, just barely
made it."
Vauzanges said in his case,
the engine had not been
properly maintained and it
lost power.
"In a single-engine plane,"
he said, "if the engine quits,
you could be in trouble."

Cityvs. county
There has been some writ-
ten debate among city and
county officials about -how
Venice has handled develop-
ment along Laurel Road.
When asked for comment,
every person interviewed
characterized any disagree-
ments as a difference in opin-
ions.
"The best way to put it is,
sometimes we have a differ-
ence of opinion," Davis said
Friday.- "For example, say
maybe we want additional
turn lanes, but they don't."
His memo to county com-
missioners March 22 made
the disagreements, sound
more serious, stating that
Venice planners do not
always make developers
build "what we would require
in the unincorporated area."
These comments prompt-
-ed -commissioner Shannon
Staub to question who should


take over responsibility for
Laurel Road's maintenance
and expansion.
"Is there a way for'the city
of Venice to take over Laurel
Road from the county, sort of
like when North Port took
over Toledo Blade?" Staub
wrote March 22.
Venice Planning and
Zoning Director Tom
Slaughter admits there has
been finger-pointing
between the county and city,
but quickly adds neither
agency is fighting over these
issues. Debate over growth
impacts on existing roads are
all "professional disagree-
ments" that ultimately are
resolved by Southwest Florida
Regional Planning Council
out of Fort Myers.
Most of the time city
requirements of developers
exceed thelegal standard, like
the paving of Laurel Road east
of Knights Trail by Venetian
Golf & River Club, according
to the city.
'; As for Venice assuming
responsibility. for Laurel


Road, there have been no offi-
cial discussions between the
county and city on that topic,
Slaughter said.
"The county can't have it
both ways, advocating itself
as a full-service provider and
not take care of the roads....
It's all about regional partner-
ships," Slaughter said.
Relieving traffic
There are at, least seven
planned road projects that
could alleviate traffic conges-
tion along Laurel Road. The
key word is "planned," as
many of the jobs could be
years away before shovels are
stuck in the ground and dirt
starts to move.
Here's a recap of where
Laurel Road area projects
stand:

About a mile south of Laurel

Get a grip on your game


Well, it's that time of year
again. The winter season is
almost over and summer is
just around the corner. It
may be time for you to take a
look at your clubs. Yes, your
clubs need spring cleaning
too. In fact, your whole game
might need a little sprucing
up.
Let's start with your grips.
Most people think grips are
like tires, you know, replace
them when they blow out. If
you play very often you are
aware that your grip may be
the most important part of
your bats. The only part of
the club you actually come in
contact with is your grips, so
make sure they are right for
you. There are a few things to
look for in a grip.
1.) Get sized for your grip.
Yes I said sized. Think of a
baseball player and his bats.
Do you think he goes down
to Wal-Mart and just picks
them based on their pretty
colors? Not a chance.
Knowing what size grips you
need is important. I guaran-

tee your game will benefit
more from spending $100 on
new grips than that new $500
oversized driver.
2.) When looking at grips,
try to know what to look for.
Do you know that your left
pinkie and ring finger should
be touching the heel of your
palm? The grip size will affect
your game in many ways you
can't imagine. A grip that is
too large for you will inhibit

your wrist action, which will
often cause shots
which fly to the right, sort of
a push. Conversely a grip
that is too small will cause
too much wrist action, result-
ing in shots pulled left or
worse the dreaded hook.
3.) Do not be cheap about
this. If the grips you like cost
$7 each installed, pay the
man. Most golfers don't think
twice about buying a new
club. They will spend as
much as necessary to
improve their game. If you
compare your clubs to your
car, changing your grips is
akin to changing your oil. Oh,
you can drive a long time
before changing your oil, but
you'll pay for it. Bad grips will
cause bad shots, which you
will pay for too.
4.) Lastly, don't be
ashamed to use ladies grips if
you have small hands. Do
what you have to do to
improve your game. Have no
fear of what your buddies say,
just do what works for you.
See ya.

Skateboarders ride roughshod over private property


One citizen said skateboarders have a literacy
problem. He wants to know what part of "No"


they do not understand.

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

It is that time of year again
when the little darlings take
to their skateboards and ter-
rorize the citizens.:
"We have numerous letters
on file from area businesses
who have given us power to
act on their behalf," Venice
Police Sgt. Kevin McGrath
said. "They want the skate-
boarders removed."
There was an incident
Tuesday afternoon at the U.S.
Post Office on Venice Avenue.
Police were called because
there were at least seven
youngsters skateboarding in
-front of the building.
"They were on the ramps
and steps right in front of the
building, and in the parking
lot," one witness said.
"There is going to be an
incident one of them will
wipe out an elderly person
who can't get out of the way
fast enough."
Another man was over-
heard telling a lady at the post
office he thinks the issue of
skateboarders is more about
illiteracy than simply not
obeying the rules.
"I don't think they can
read." he said. "Neither can
their parents."


Still another witness got
there too late to actually see
the kids boarding, but in time
to see them talking to police
officers.
"I couldn't believe the cops
would harass kids on spring
break." Daniel deBerard said.
"It just struck me wrong."
However, deBerard said he
was not aware that many
businesses have authorized
police to remove skateboard-
ers from their property.
"If they are not supposed
to be there, then I guess they
shouldn't,", deBerard said.
"But, give the kids a place to
go, something to do."

Guarantee
Still, another wirmess to the
post office incident said a
lady there said one of the
skateboarders once went
through the front window.
Attorneys said one reason
businesses do not want skate-
boarders on their property is
potential liability. If a skate-
boarder goes through a busi-
ness's plate glass window, the
parents will go after the busi-
ness. That is an absolute,
iron-clad guarantee, they
said.
Same principle applies to
an innocent party who gets
whacked out by a skate

through the county landfill
site as an additional north-
south connector that would
go to Central Sarasota
Parkway, Clark Road and
eventually University
Parkway in North County.
This project is not on the
county's immediate trans-
portation plan, Davis said,


"What I would hate to
see happen is 10 years

attorney and former

Commission member


Transportation will make U.S.
41 six lanes from the Venice
bypass/business interchange
north to State Road 681. This
would include reworking of
the Laurel Road and U.S. 41
intersection in Nokomis,
which City. Manager Marry
Black describes as "broken"
when asked about traffic con-
ditions.
Pinebrook/Honore
extension This would be a
new north-south option
heading north from Laurel
Road and parallel with 1-75,
though work isn't expected to
start until the 2010-11 fiscal
year, at the soonest. The
county road would extend all
the way to State Road 681 for
connections to 1-75 at mile
marker 200 or U.S. 41.
Specific routes and work
hinges on what FDOT does
with 1-75 expansion.
1-75 widening-Work on
this state project isn't expect-
ed to start until 2010-11 fiscal
year, at the soonest, and does
not have a completion date.
Plans- are to make 1-75 eight
lanes from Jacaranda
Boulevard (Exit 193) to State
Road 681 (Exit 200), and six
lanes from lacaranda to River
Road. Dais has heard FDOT
is studying expansion of 1-75
south of River Road, but he
has not heard any official
plans.
Knights Trail extension
- Venice area officials, pri-
vate developers and land-use
attorneys have long called for


and it could be
"10-15 years
before we see
something on
that, unless
other forces
drive it soon-
er."
Jacaranda
extension -
This would
c o n nect
jacaranda to
Laurel Road.
County plan-
ners are still
determining
this road's path
because of
multiple wet-
land areas.
Venice is nego-
tiating an
annexation


agreement for 400 acres of
land, and the city manager
said Venice will require the
developer dedicate the land
needed for this extension.
Potential dates for construc-
tion, however, have not even
been budgeted.

Opportunity
Local land-use attorney
Jeff Boone. who's represented
nearly every developer along
East Laurel Road, grew up in
Venice and has watched
North Venice go from acres
and acres of farm land to
acres and acres of new devel-
opments.
In his opinion, city, county
and state transportation offi-
cials have the chance to get
ahead of traffic problems
caused by growth instead of
playing catch-up.
Government officials know
where the growth is headed.
It's up to them to prepare.
"Often times, roads are
built too late," Boone said.
"There's an opportunity here.
Even though there's a lot of
development in the works out
there, a lot of it hasn't com-
menced, and in reality', it
won't for a few years.
"What I would hate to see
happen is 10 years from now,
people sitting back saying, 'I
,really wish back in 2005 they
had gotten that extension of
Knights Trail Road done.' Now
is the time to do it, period."

boarder. The lawyers will go
after the business even
though there are "No
Skateboarding" signs plas-
tered all around the area.
'An injury resulting from a
skateboard is a lawsuit wait-
ing to happen against the
property owner," Venice
attorney Kevin Staas said. -

Babysitting
McGrath said police "get
all kinds of calls" from busi-
nesses and residents about
kids skateboarding where
they shouldn't.
"Our guys are pretty dili-
gent, even if they are not dis-
patched and they see them
skateboarding," he said, "they
ask them to leave, and go"
someplace else."
However, McGrath said


police rarely issue citations.
Technically,a trespass cita-
tion could be issued to some-
one skateboarding on private
property that is posted.
"We used to take their
skateboards and give them to
the parents," McGrath said.
"But, we can't do that any-
more."

Dodge'em
A woman who happened
to be checking her post office
box got an up-close-and-per-
sonal vieyw of the skateboard
acdon.
"I had to dodge them like
everybody else," she said.
"Isn't it about time the little --
--- went back to school?"
The woman also said if you
say anything to the skate
boarders, you are likely to get

GCCFV enters second year


of the better boards initiative


STAFF REPORT


Gulf Coast Community,
Foundation ofVenice will kick
off the second year of its suc-
cessful Building Better Boards
initiative with an informa-
tional session Friday, April 8,
at Plantation Golf and
Country Club.
Dr. Sandra Hughes, a
national expert on nonprofit
governance, will lead the pre-
sentation.
The Foundation invites all
local nonprofit organizations
to attend this meeting to
learn how to participate in
the initiative.
Building Better Boards is a
three-year initiative to pro-
mote the need for good board
governance and provide the
resources necessary for con-
tinuing board development
in nonprofit organizations.
The initiative involves two
phases for participating orga-
nizations: an online board
self-assessment, to be com-
pleted by all participants; and
free board training for select-
ed organizations.
In year one of the initiative,
more than 50 local nonprofit
boards completed the self-
assessment, using an online
tool developed to track effec-
tive board roles, behaviors
and practices. They received a
Report on their board struc-
ture, performance and opera-
tions, as well as comparisons
to local peers and a one-year
membership to BoardSource,
a resource for information,
training, and leadership
development for board mem-
bers of nonprofit organiza-
tions.
Twelve of the organiza-
tions were chosen to partici-
pate in the initiative's training
component, which includes
board facilitation with a
trained consultant, participa-
tion in a two-day board insti-
tute, networking session, and
project grants related to gov-
ernance. In mid-March, the
board chairs and chief execu-
tives of the organizations
gathered for the two-day skill-
building institute.
"With over 25 years of
experience in nonprofit man-
agement, I found the board
institute one of the most valu-
able experiences in terms of
executive directors working
with their boards," noted
Larry Thompson, who
attended as board chairman
of Van Wezel Foundation. "I
think the institute provided
our board with a big picture
as well as specific snapshots
of how to focus on our mis-
sion and strategic planning."
Organizations that take
part in the second year of
Building Better Boards will
have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in both phases of the
initiative. Participants must
complete the online board
assessment in order to apply
for the board training compo-
* nent.


RSVP BY APRIL 5
The kickoff event will be
held Friday, April 8.
Reservations must be made by
Tuesday, April 5. by visiting
gulfcoastcf.org or calling 486-

The year-two kickoff event
will be held Friday, April 8, at


Plantation Golf and Country
Club, 500 Rockley Boulevard,
Venice.
A continental breakfast
will be served at 8 a.m., and
the presentation will begin
promptly at 8:30 a.m.

off event must be made by

The local Habitat for Hu-
manity chapter has made ad-
justments to deal more effec-
tively with the problems of in-
adequate housing in an ex-
plosively changing commu-
nity.
In 1992 Habitat for Hu-
manity Venice Area Inc. was
spun off from the countywide
Habitat for Humanity.
The new organization has
focused on housing needs
from Osprey to Laurel, Noko-
mis, Venice, South Venice,
Englewood and North Port.
The parent organization
has been able to concentrate
its efforts on the county from
Osprey north.
Brad Schuette, president of
the Venice-area Habitat, said
"explosive development in
Osprey has led Habitat for
Humanity for North Sarasota
County and ourselves to work
out an agreement where our
activities there will support
and supplement and not con-
flict."
"The area involved is
postal zip code 34229, which
lies between South Creek
and North Creek," he said.
"We are not establishing a
point of demarcation," but
an agreement for each chap-
ter to keep the other
informed about present and
future activities that have
become geographically over-
lapped, and to support each
other's projects.
"This would not be only


abut building homes," he
said, "but would include
fund-raising, recruiting vol-
unteers and partners."
He said the idea is to avoid
having a person or organiza-
tion solicited separately by
the two chapters.
At the same time, if each
chapter is kept abreast of the
other's plans and activities,
opportunities for more
advantageous joint efforts
can be expected, he said.


The Venice-area chapter
has built 27 homes since it
was formed. It's progress is
achieved with a balance of
donations (of land, money
and materials), volunteers
and partners to work on and
live in the homes.
Judith Wilcox, executive
director of the chapter, has
said an inability to acquire
land will impair Habitat's
ability to carry out its mission
here.

Erosion study shows differences between storms


Hard as it may be to believe, experts say
Southwest Florida beaches were spared the worst
of the hurricanes' effects.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
Sand is a valuable com-
modity in a state like Florida,
but when hurricanes ap-
proach, it can be the only
thing protecting homes, con-
dominiums and other struc-
tures from destruction.
Geology experts studying
the impacts of erosion related
to last year's four hurricanes
found the erosion from Hur-
ricane Charley was less than
half of what Frances caused,
and one-fifth of what occur-
red during Ivan.
Ivan even caused a 7-foot
to 9-foot vertical loss of sand.
which in turn caused several
large buildings to come
down, said Ashbury Sallenger
Jr., a geologist with the U.S.
Geological Survey's Center for
Coastal and Watershed Stud-
ies in St. Petersburg during
the 27th annual National
Hurricane Conference
Ivan was the worst coastal
change event since Hurricane
Hugo," Sallenger said. "It is
unique in my experience to
see that kind of damage to
bigger structures."
He said most bigger build-
ings see their first floors
blown through or windows
blown out from debris strikes.
"This may be one of the
firsttimes in'U.S. history such
large buildings were taken
down by erosion," Sallenger
said.
Sobering
During Charley, aside from
where the knife blade crossed
the coastline at upper Captiva
Island, there was a 6-foot re-
treat on average. There were
local hot spots of up to 60 feet
of :erosion, but those were
rare, he said.
With four storms' of such
% varying strengths inj one sea-
son, Sallenger said it will take
years to complete the
research, but early analysis
revealed just how varied the
storms were.
"It gave us a good look into
the impacts the storms had,"
he said.
Utilizing U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers data, the geolog-
ical survey uses a NASA plane
mounted with a special laser
that can look at water depths
and show images.
Two key issues Sallenger
looked were the breach on
upper Captiva Island, which
shocked many in the days
after Charley, and the unex-
pected erosion of beaches in
the Panhandle that under-
mined six buildings.
For Charley, Sallenger's
team surveyed the coastline
from Marco Island to Venice
and found that even though
Charley had winds of 150
mph, the erosion averaged 2
meters, or about 6 feet. The
hot spots were up to 20
meters, or about 60 feet.
Fort Myers Beach had a
storm surge of about 8 feet
and Naples had one between
3 and 4 feet, but the fast-for-
ward speed limited the effects
of the surge since it was rela-
tively short.
On upper Captiva, the
breach came at the narrowest
point on the island.
"It certainly could have
been worse there," Sallenger
said. "We saw erosion from
Ivan of 13 meters which had
shocking effects. It's extreme-
ly sobering for one of the
Buildings to be built after
(Hurricanel Andrew to have
that kind of collapse."
Dangerous position
While the sand types vary
throughout Florida, the, type
of storm also makes a big
difference in erosion, he
said.
SHurricane Frances took
nearly 24 hours to cross the
east coast of Florida, result-
ing in 5 meters, or about 15
feet, of erosion from the
storm. The cumulative


effects of Frances and
leanrw were up to 15
mererls, 'br about 45 feet,
meeaing beaches that were


not taken by Frances were
lost by the added erosion
from Jeanne.
Sallenger said a lot of the
sand comes back naturally,


but not if the sand is forced
into a back bay.
Erosion is a critical issue
in Southwest Florida, as the
economy relies on the pris-
tine beaches and open pass-
es for boaters.
Max Mayfield, director of
the National Hurricane
Center, said he is disturbed

by the erosion since it can
have a real impact if there is
a repeat of 2004 with multi-
ple hurricanes hitting the
same places.
"It is a real worry," May-
field said.
"With all of the coastline,
what we are doing is develop-
ing the science which is very


relevant to public safety and
to be used in a practical
framework," Sallenger said.
Some of the work explains
why areas of the coastlines
and barrier islands of
Southwest Florida .remain
undeveloped as compared to
the East Coast partially
because of the elevation and


high susceptibility to extreme
erosion.
"That coast is in a very
dangerous position when
storms like the ones we had
this year become possible,"
Sallenger said.

Loitering

encouraged

Debbie Eaton and Linda
Bannister know young peo-
ple like to hang out and loiter.
The two women encourage
the 100 plus members of the
Young Adults Arena Project to
do just that by helping local
organizations. Several mem-
bers from the group. helped
out at the annual Lion's
Club/Venice MainStreet East-
er Egg Hunt. Call Debbie at
497-7117 to get some of these
kind helpers to hang out and
work at your event. On their
black T-shirts is their motto,
"Where loitering is encour-
aged."
Sharks' teeth wanted
Bryan Lockyear needs
sharks', teeth. This faithful
Lion's Club volunteer is work-
ing their booth at the Shark's
Tooth Festival this year and
needs teeth to bury so chil-
dren can sift through the sand
to find them. If you are one of
the avid beach hunters and
have some teeth you can part
with, call Bryan at 484-1710.
He is willing to pick up your
load.
Congratulations
Everyone enjoys celebrat-
ing anniversaries and a gioup
of priests and deacons recent-
ly celebrated their golden and
silver jubilees in the priest-
hood. At a special Mass at
Epiphany Cathedral, Bishop
Nevins honored several men,
including Father Mark Heu-
berger. Many locals remem-
ber Father Mark as the chap-
lain at Cardinal Mooney High
School for many years.
Terror in paradise
The Book Shop on Venice

written by local author Daniel
Hopsicker. "Welcome To Ter-
rorland" gives some interest-
ing accounts of the 9/11 ter-
rorists and their experiences
in Venice. Ladies at the store
told me the book is a local
best-seller. I must admit. I
winced at the title as I have

T he Sharks Tooth Capital of the World also
happens to be the home of a friendly troll
-Troll lMusic.


Normally the image of a
troll is of an ugly and malcon-
tent beast that is willing to
gobble you up. \ery seldom
could you come across a nice
one ... if you come across any
at all. There is, however, a nice
troll right here in Venice.
Troll Music has been \Ven-
ice's answer to local music
store since 1989 and has been
located at its current location,
520 E. Venice Ave., for eight
years. Before settling there it
had moved around a bit until.
finding its current home.
Owner and operator Nick Fer-
licchi first opened the store
underneath the Venice Ave-
nue Biidge.
Ferlicchi, 54, has been
playing guitar pretty much his
whole life. His mother taught
guitar lessons in New Jersey,
where he grew up. He began
working at the same music
store as his mother at age 12.
He hasn't left the music retail
business since.
After visiting his grand-
mother, who moved toVenice
in 1960, Ferlicchi decided to


move away from New Jersey
during the gas shortage in
1971. Bummed out by the
cold up North he traveled
down to Florida with friends
and toured the state. After
returning to New Jersey he
saved up money for four
months and moved to Flor-
ida.
"It was 7 degrees when I
left and 80 degrees when I got
here," Ferlicchi said. "It wasn't
that hard of a decision."
People have always been
astounded by Ferlicchi's ex-
perience with music real. He
started working at a music
store called King of Hearts in
the Venice Mall. He became.
manager of that same store
when it was turned into a
Thoroughbred Music store.
That's where he met co-'
owner Danny Swain.
Swain is also owner ofpest
control service called Bug
Termite and Pest Control. He
took over the business from
his father when he got out of
the Air Force in 1972. By 1974
Swain started the now leg-

Flyer. It was beneficial for
Swain to be a musician him-
self because it helps him with
music retail and it ultimately
brought him in contact with
Ferlicchi. Together, they both
have an abundance of experi-
ence on both sides of the
counter.
When Troll Music first
opened, its opening inventory
included 12 guitars and pretty
much all the gear that Fer-
licchi and Swain could gather.
Ferlicchi lived upstairs from
the store and would make it
available for musicians no
matter what time of day it
was. If it was 11 at night and
someone broke a string or
blew an amplifier Ferlicchi
Would be there to open the
store. Opening day.was on
April Fools Day 1989.
"We never had a grand
opening," Ferlicchi said "We
didn't think people would
take us seriously."
The name "Troll" was cho-
sen because of a Norwegian
folk tale called "Three Billy
Goats Gruff." Like the troll in
the fable the store was under-
neath the bridge.
"People thought we were
satanic or something." Ferlic-
chi said. "After we cleared that
up we got involved with more
churches."
Now the store has between
250 to 300 guitars in'stock,
school band instruments,
drums, effects, PA speakers
and an entire galaxy of acces-
sories available. The store has
managed to outlive other
stores in Venice like Accent
Music, Marcus Music and
Paragon Music. One of the
store's most popular acces-
sories is the drink holder that
hooks onto a microphone
stand. It's perfect for vocalists
who are in need of seasoning
the vocals.
"Originally it was a rock 'ri'
roll type of store, but it grew
into something bigger," Fer-
licchi said. "The customer
base is very diverse. We get
customers that range in age
from 6 to 96."


With such an array of cus-
tomers there is a multitude of
products available at the
store. Whether you play har-
monica or bass, you can find
it at Troll Music. The store
specializes in finding sheet
music and hard-to-find prod-
ucts.
Lessons are also available
for drums, school band in-
struments and guitar. There
are two guitar teachers. One is
a female former student who
is teaching and inspiring
more girls how to be rock
stars. ,
You can find Ferlicchi or,
Swain at one of the many
events they provide sound
reinforcement for.
They provide service regu-
larly to churches and festivals,
including the Italian Feast
and Carnival.
They can also be found at
the Furry Scurry, Sharks Tooth
and Sun Fiesta festivals.
"We do 90 percent of the
live shows in the area," Swain
said. "The best thing is that I
get to see everybody at die
festivals.
"Everybody knows that I'll

By being musicians 'rfit-

said. "The greatest thing is,
that we're able to appreciate
all music because so many
different kinds of musicians'
come into the store."

unlike the character in the
tale, will invite you in and
probably help you out with
any music need you might

"We have paid our dues,
and out of hard work we have
outlived many other music
stores in the area," Swain said.
"We try to give back to the
town that supported us for so
many years."

The Venice Community Mental Health Center, 1101 South
Tamiami Trail, is offering free alcohol screenings on April 7.


BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

7 If you are still celebrating
St. Patrick's Day into the next
month by drinking, the Ven-
:ice Community Health Cen-
ter is offering a free alcohol
screening on April 7 as part of
Alcohol Awareness Month.
The center, located at 1101
South Tamiami Trail, offers
help to those with addictions.
:- While a couple of drinks
seems innocent enough, it
can turn into a problem if a
person is not happy with his
or her life. Here in Venice, the
problem is just as pertinent as
it is in the rest of the world.
The awareness day was creat-
ed because alcoholism still
creates so many problems in-
stead of fixing them.
-"It's a big health issue,"
:Yvonne Kuppe, program
manager of the center said.
Kuppe is part of the Out-
patient Addictions Recovery
,S'gvices offered by the center.
Th Sarasota the older popula-
'tion is at risk because mixing
medications with alcohol can
be deadly. Since many older
residents are isolated in their
homes or have lost loved
ones, they are particularly at
risk. Usually friends and fam-
ily get help,-but sometimes it
is up to a doctor or hospital to
help.
"'"There are still too many
-people dying from cirrhosis
of the liver, on the highways
and from people falling
asleep with cigarettes," Kuppe
ggd. "Alcohol is the third
dEading cause of death."'
=As part of the screening,
attendees will complete a
questionnaire, watch a video,
take educational materials
and talk one-on-one with a
health professional. The cen-


"Th Eve DVoctor
on lthe Island"


ter will also offer referrals for
local treatment facilities and
support services for those
who seek further assistance.
At the center people with
addictions can seek help on
an outpatient basis. A three-
month program lets people
deal with their' addictions
while dealing with their own
daily life.,
The center also advocates
attending Alcoholics Anon-
ymous or any sobriety-based
support system while in the
program.
Some things you may not
know about alcohol accord-
ing to the center:
* Heavy drinking raises the
risk for high blood pressure,
heart disease, certain cancers,
car crashes, unintentional
injuries, violence, suicides,
birth defects and overall
mortality.
* More than 150 medications
interact harmfully with alco-
hol. These interactions may
result in increased risk of
illness, injury and even
death.
* Alcohol can alter blood
sugar levels and,exacerbate
diabetes; impair, reproduc-
tive functions and interfere
with calcium metabolism
and bone structure, increas-
ing the risk of osteoporosis.
* Researchers have identified
no safe threshold for drink-
ing during pregnancy.
The' center always offers
free assessments and the
program is covered by Med-.
icare and most insurance.
To schedule a private, con-
fidential and free screening
at the center, call 488-1145.
"There's always a reason
why people drink," Kuppe
said. "There is help out there
and it's free and confiden-
tial."

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell, ,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I've seen quite a few
herbal remedies for ringing
in the ears at our local health
food store. How well do these
work. I have had ringing in
both of my ears for the last
twelve years and if these
herbs are effective, would it
be wise to try them?
A. Ringing in the ears, or
tinnitus, plagues millions of.
Americans and there are many
herbal companies, which
exploit these persons
misfortune by claiming to have
a herbal "cure" for sale. Most
research conducted in the
United States does not
correlate any herbal therapy
with tinnitus relief. European
studies, however, are hopeful.
Dr. Richard Carmen, a tinnitus
researcher, describes one
European-based study
involving ginkgo-biloba. A
significant number of persons
reported unequivocal benefit
and some reported complete
relief from tinnitus. The data
also' suggests that treatment is
most effective for persons with
early-onset tinnitus verses
those persons with a history of
long-term tinnitus. Again, these
research results are preliminary
and have not, as yet, been
substantiated by U.S. based
researchers. Those persons
experiencing tinnitus should
discuss all possible treatment
options' with a Certified
Audiologist before, embarking
on any treatment plan, herbal
or otherwise. Only a Certified
Audiologist can properly
evaluate your tinnitus and work
in concert with your physician
for the proper correction. Call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing and Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to learn more
about tinnitus and treatment
options.

CAROL MOZIK
GARDENING COLUMNIST

Which Easter plants can be
recycled outdoors in South
Florida? As much as we wish,
all spring flowering bulbs
cannot grow outside in our
tropical climate. Let's be
thankful for the beautiful
ones that do. Your Easter lily
(Lilium longiflorum) is one
that can. In this warm weath-
er, the beautiful white blooms
(Princess Diana's favorite
flower) fade quickly, either
indoors or out. As soon as
they do, snip off the flowers
(deadheading), keeping the
green leaves growing as long
as possible. Anytime now, you
can plant outside. Dig a hole-
about 6-7 inches deep and
plant in partial sun/partial
shade, filling in with good
potting soil.
Anytime you can add a
good potting mixture to your
sandy soil, you will benefit.
A handful of bulb- food
scratched into the bottom of
the hole wouldn't hurt either.
Water thoroughly. As with all
bulbs, the time spent after
blooming is critical. The green,
leaves help store up energy in
the, bulbs for the next bloom-
ing season. If you cut off the
bulb at ground level before
the green leaves mature,
chances are you won't have
any bloom next year. With lots
of luck, and a good regimen,
you might even be surprised
to see a bloom or two this July

The same scenario goes
for your amaryllis (Hippea-

glory last Easter Sunday, a
variety called Apple Blossom.
As soon as it finishes bloom-
ing, 'I will transplant it out 'of
its pot and tuck it into the
ground (they seem to do so
much better in the ground).
The top of the amaryllis bulb
should be planted only an
inch or so deep, just for sta-
bility of the plant. Once again,
a partial shade, partial sun
area is recommended. The
strapping 24- to 30-inch
leaves will grow for quite
some time before dying back
for "its rest period. You can
fertilize occasionally. Follow
the directions on the package
of your favorite pelletized
slow release fertilizer. Take it
easy with the fertilizer, a half
dose before blooming is bet-
ter than an overdose.

Venice needs bus stop benches


_KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST


Few of our but stops have
benches. She was sitting on
the curb with her groceries
around her feet; waiting for
the "V" route bus near Al-
bertson's. I was on my way to


Venice City Hall for the Senior
Living Committee meeting.
We had talked just last meet-
ing about public transporta-
tion after hearing some con-
cerns and suggestions from a
citizen.
How many times in the last
four years have we wrestled
with the problems of needing
more public transportation
and at the same time attract-
ing more riders to make the
system economically viable?
The system on the island
with the V route and Scat-
About concept is good but
there is no place for a person
to sit and wait for the bus.
That is why the lady was sit-
ting on the curb. No bench.


Each time we talk about the
bus system, bus stop benches
come up. But each time noth-
ing gets done.
Either it is a problem with
jurisdiction or with design or
money- something. But the
public says we need benches,
convenience is an important
issue.
But this time a doable sug-
gestion was presented!
If we could get SCAT and
the city ofVenice to cooperate
we could ask the area's service
clubs like the Lions, Rotary,
Elks, Sertoma, Kiwanis, etc. to
each sponsor a bench for
every bus stop in town.
Maybe the City Accessibility
Committee would use some


of the parking fine money to
sponsor two?
We could even have a
"Beautify the Bench" contest
to follow the "Paint the Pig."
We could have fun and over-
come one of the major obsta-
cles to people riding the bus.
Do you think the county
commissioners would join us
and we could have bus stop
benches all over the Venice
area?
Good experiment to see if
ridership improves.

amount, to the right patient
can produce medical mira-
cles. But, medicine affects
different people in different
ways and can cause danger-
ous reactions. People over
age 65 are especially vulnera-
ble to medication problems,
due to the biological changes
that occur with aging, and
because many seniors tend
to take multiple medications
at the same time for various
health problems.
Misuse
Medication misuse refers
to giving the right medication
but the wrong dose, the
wrong medicine for a partic-
ular condition, or two or
more drugs that interact dan-
gerously. Any of these scenar-
ios in seniors can cause,
aggravate, or contribute to
problems, including: confu-
sion, hallucinations, depres-
sion, dizziness, drowsiness,
falls, insomnia, loss of coor-
dination, dry mouth and
memory loss, all of which can
lead to a decreased quality of
life, loss of independence,
hospitalization and even
death.
The problem
The main reason medica-
tion-related problems occur
with seniors is because very
few doctors have any training
in geriatrics. Too often, illness
is misdiagnosed, overlooked,
or dismissed as a nQrmal part
of aging because health pro-
fessionals are not trained to

Tax help
Dear Savvy Senior,


recognize how diseases and
drugs affect older people. If a
greater number of health
care professionals had better
training and understanding
of medications and their
effects in older persons,
many problems could be
avoided.
The solution
To make the best use of
your medicines, it's impor-
tant to take an active role in
decisions about your treat-
merit, follow your treatment
plan as prescribed, watch out
for problems and get help in
solving them should they
occur. Most medicine prob-
lems can be avoided or
solved by communicating
with your doctor and/or
pharmacist. Here are some
key points to talk to your
doctor about when a new
drug is prescribed:
Ask about the risks and
benefits of each medicine.
Find out what side effects
the medicine may have, and
what to do if they occur.
Tell your doctor about all
the medicines you are
already taking, if you are
being treated by another
doctor for something else,
and if you have any allergies
or side effects from any par-

Are there any limits when
seniors don't have to file federal
income taxes? My 82-year-old
mother lives on her Social
Security and a tiny bit of savings
and it doesn't seem to be worth
the trouble to file. Also, can you
tell me if my Social Security ben-
efits will be taxed? I just started
receiving benefits last month
and have heard several conflict-
ing things. What can you tell;
me? Exempt Eddy
Dear Eddy,
Depending on your
income level, your Social
Security benefits may be tax-
able. To figure this out, add
up all of your taxable'
income, plus any tax exempt
interest you earned, plus one
half of your Social Security. If
these combined amounts are
under than the required lim-
its ($25,000 if you file as a
single, and $32,000 if you file
a joint return) then you owe
no tax on your Social
Security. But, if the total is
greater, you will.
Filing limits
Your mom may not have
to file federal income taxes if
her "gross income" is under
certain limits. Gross income
includes all the income she
received that is not exempt
from tax, not including Social


3-mile or 1-mile options

Security, unless she is mar-
ried and filing separately.
Here are the filing statuses
and 2004 federaHl limits you
should know about.
, Filing as a single, if your
gross income is less than
$7,950 (add $1,200 if age 65
or over), you don't have to
file.
Filing as head of the
household, your gross
income must be less than
$10,250. Add $1,200 if age 65
or over.
Filing married or jointly,
you must have a gross
income of less than $15,900,
Add $950 for each spouse age
65 or over.
Filing married but sepa-
rately at any age, must be less
than $3,100.
Filing as a qualifying
widow(er), must be less than
$12,800. Add $950 if age 65 or
over.
Note: The IRS has rules
and exceptions for almost
every circumstance, so be
sure to talk with a tax prepar-
er to know what you're
required to do. Also, for state
income tax requirements
check with your state tax
agency.

Bone health
Dear Savvy Senior,
I broke my wrist last month
when I slipped and fell walking
out to the car. After an X-ray and
a hand cast, my doctor told me
that my fracture may be an early
sign of osteoporosis. I was
shocked since I'm only 53 and in
pretty good health. My question
is can someone my age actually
get osteoporosis? And if .so,
what can I do to prevent it from
getting worse? Not Old Yet
Dear Not,
You sure can. For a long time,
osteoporosis has been con-
sidered a disease that affects
only the elderly, but accord-


china which she used on spe-
cial occasions. My mother
inherited these dishes that she
also used only on special occa-
sions. The serving pieces had
beautiful shapes. I, too, used
this china only for luncheon
gatherings. It has been passed
on to one of my children who
uses it for special times.
When I was a child, news-
papers were tightly twisted to
start fires in the cookstoves


ing to a recent report
released by the U.S. Surgeon
General, by 2020 half of all
Americans over age 50 will be
at risk for fractures from
osteoporosis. Here's what you
should know.
Osteoporosis is a bone-
thinning disease often called
the "silent disease" because
most people don't know they
have it until they break a
bone. In the United States
today, 10 million people age
50 and older already have
osteoporosis, while another
34 million are at risk for
developing it. Women are
also much more likely than
men to be affected.
Are you at risk?
For some people bone loss
begins as early as their late
30s. For women, menopause
is the time when bone loss
accelerates. For men, the loss
of bone mass occurs more
slowly. However after age 75,
osteoporosis is as common.
in men as it is in women.
Other risk factors for osteo-
porosis can include:
Family history
A small, thin body frame
Early menopause or
removed ovaries
Inactive lifestyle
Low intake of calcium/vit-
aminD
Long-term use of steroid
medications
Cigarette smoking
Savvy fact
One in two women and
onre in four men over age 50


and fireplaces. Newspapers
also lined shelves and draw-
ers and were used to wrap
around hot bricks to warm
the bed in cold weather.
When we were growing up
we recycled everything, but
we didn't have that fancy
word for it! It was "Waste not,
want not" and "A penny saved
is a penny earned!"
Now we recycle things, but
in a very different way. My


will have an osteoporosis-
related fracture in their
remaining lifetime, typically
in the hip, wrist or spine.
Prevention and treatment
It's never to late to help
your bones. Here are some
tips and treatments that can
help improve your bone
health:
Test: If you're older than
age 65, or have ever had even
a minor fracture after age 50,
it's a good idea to take a bone
density test every few years.
Calcium: Women need
1,000 milligrams (mg) daily
until age 50, and 1,200 to
'1,500 mg after age 50. Men
need 1,000 until age 65, apnd
1,200 to 1,500 mg thereafter.
You can get calcium by eat-
ing dairy foods, salmon, dark
green vegetables, almonds
and fortified foods like
orange juice, breads and
cereals. If you don't think you
get enough calcium in your
diet, talk to your doctor
about taking a supplement.
But, be careful not to get
more than 2,500 mg per day.
Also know that the body will
not absorb more than 600
mg of calcium at one time.
Vitamin D: Necessary for
calcium absorption. You ,
need 400 international units
(IU) to 800 IU daily. Egg
yokes, oily fish and vitamin D
fortified cereal and dairy
products are good food
sources. Most multivitamins,
provide 400 IU of vitamin D.
Exercise: Weight-bearing
exercise is best for preventing


friend, Helen, told me that old
cell phones are being pro-
grammed to be used by
abused women to call 911 in
an emergency. They are also
being sent to soldiers in the
war zones to call home. Old
typewriter keys are being
made into jewelry. I don't
want any, thank you!
At least we recycle more
now. We save yard trash, glass,
paper, metal and plastic for


osteoporosis.
Treatment: FDA approved
drugs such as bisphospho-
nates, raloxifene, teriparatide
and calcitonin can reduce
fracture risk by 30 to 50 per-
cent but may cause potential
side effects. Talk to your doc-
tor to see if one of these is
good for you. Also note that
some drugs, such as corticos-
teroids, speed up bone loss
by interfering with calcium
absorption.

I am a 58-year-old woman,
recently disabled, living alone
and I would like to know more
about my rights with regard to

Dear Fighting,
A nice thing to remember
when you pick a, fight with

So many, in fact, that there is
even an Office of Hearings
and Appeals (OHA) dedicat7
ed to handling these cases.
If Social Security decides
you won't receive benefits, or
if you disagree with their
decision, you can appeal.
But, you have to do it within
60 days from the date you get
the letter about the decision
in your case. Here are the
four levels of the appeals

Grand Floridian Resort & Spa a real Victorian gem


STAFF REPORT

A grand hotel with gabled
roofs and Victorian balus-
trades typical of the fabled
Florida beach resorts of the
19th century is among Walt
Disney World's themed resort
adventures.
Disney's Grand Floridian
Resort & Spa, nestled on the
picturesque shores of Seven
Seas Lagoon between the
Magic Kingdom and Disney's
Polynesian Resort, welcomed
its first modern-day time-
travelers in mid-1988.
The 867-room hotel, fea-
turing complete resort facili-
ties, recalls the days when
John D. Rockefeller, Thomas
Edison and even President
Theodore Roosevelt led the
annual winter pilgrimage to
the land of friendly sunshine,
where rowboats and palm
fans replaced snow shoes and
pot-belly stoves. Canary
palms, Southern magnolias
and richly colored gardens
complete the historic theme.
Often referred to as "the
jewel in the crown" of Dis-
ney's Vacation Kingdom, the
Grand Floridian also may be
the first resort of its kind
since the golden era of Henry
M. Flagler and Henry Plant.
But this time, it has all the
advantages of 21st century
living including monorail
service that stops right be-
side the 19th-century Grand
Lobby.
Complementing the guest
accommodations are restau-
rants, lounges, snack bars, an
arcade, a Mouseketeer Club
child-care facility, shopping,
swimming pools, children's


playground, marina, beauty
salon and 9,000-square-foot
spa and health club. The
luxurious, full-service spa of-
fers an array of fitness and
beauty treatments from sea-
weed body wraps to aro-
matherapy.
Like Disney's other resorts,
the Grand Floridian has a dis-
tinctive theme that carries
through architecture, land-
scape, furnishings and cos-
tumes.
The style of the buildings
is reminiscent of the Victor-
ian era but is more playful
and relaxed embellished
by intricate lattice work and
balustrades and 120 miles of
scrolls, turnposts and curved
moldings. Snow-white towers
and red-shingle roofs make a
dramatic first impression on
guests.
The resort accommoda-
tions are among the most
luxurious on Disney prop-
erty. The concierge and suite
rooms with private elevator
access in the 225,000-square-
foot Sugar Loaf Key building
include in-room facilities
such as a wet bar and lavish
decor. One of the resort's five
lodge buildings also features
personal concierge service.
In the main building, the
third-floor concierge lobby
includes three guest-services
desks designed to provide
personalized services such as
check-in/check-out, reserva-
tions, information, etc. The
fourth-floor concierge lobby
includes a quiet seating area
where guests can enjoy, at no
additional charge, continen-
tal breakfasts and evening
cocktails. The fifth-floor suite


lobby features a bookcase .
filled with a wide variety of
reading materials. -
Throughout the hotel, --
guestroom decor, as it did a

atmosphere of a refuge from .,

Alaska resort provides opportunity to view northern lights


BY ANNE CHALFANT
GUEST WRITER


The sublime does not issue
guarantees.
I bought an airline ticket
to head north to Alaska dur-
ing prime aurora borealis
viewing, knowing full well the
dancing lights might evade
me.
I was a seeker, drawn by
photos of the waving curtain
of green sometimes high-
lighted with flashes of blue
and streaks of red. My best
chance to see it was around
Fairbanks, Ala., where 'strong
magnetic pull keeps the tiny
dancers protons and elec-
trons thrown off by the bum-
ing sun in a band about
100 miles above the area all
the time.
October and March are the
best months for viewing; you
can't see the northern lights
during Alaska's bright sum-
mer nights. They do show up
many a winter night, but a
January midnight in Alaska
will freeze-dry your innards.
I scheduled my trip for
October. My aurora borealis
lookout was Chena Hot
Springs Resort, a one-hour
drive from Fairbanks. Chena
is "one of the best places in
the world" to see the lights,
affirmed Glenn Shaw, profes-
sor emeritus of the Geo-
physical Institute at the Uni-
versity of Alaska Fairbanks,
noted for aurora borealis
research.
Chena Hot Springs Resort
will not be applying for five-
star ratings anytime soon,
but this is Alaska, mind you,
where we would not want
frou-frou mixing with the
wild frontier. The resort is a
cross between Best Western-
style cleanliness and comfort
combined with an element of
a YMCA camp (there's an
activities center and a swim-
ming pool open to the pub-
lic).
Chena Hot Springs boasts
one splendid feature a deli-
ciously large, warm outdoor
hot. springs pool surrounded
by giant boulders so the


moose don't fall in.
Northern-lights seekers
are accommodated in several
ways.
You can take a late-night
snowmobile ride up a hill to
a yurt a circular tent -
where hot drinks are served,
and a scientist takes on the
job of popping out into the
cold to check for the light
show. The snowmobile wasn't
up and running during our
stay not enough snow.
Down by the hot springs
pool, there's the "aurorium," a
small building with a glass
front where you can stay
warm while waiting.
You can request a wake-
up call to alert you when the
aurora appears. ,
Intent as we were, I'm not
sure we would have trusted
the wake-up call, and as for
the aurorium, we wanted to
be far from the resort's lights
since we were trying to
photograph the aurora.
Because I knew the lights
could be elusive cloud
cover being the big enemy -
I planned three nights for my
husband 'and myself at
Chena.
The first night was cloudy
when we went to bed. But,
clouds can open up to clear
skies.
After some sky scanning,
we went to bed and set the
alarm for 1 a.m., dutifully
dragging ourselves out of
bed, zombie-like, to the

visible from our window. So I
stuffed my pajamas into my
bib ,snow pants, pulled on a
sweatshirt and my ski jacket,
donned my Nordic hat and
mittens, threw on a scarf and
tripped down the stairs and
out into the frigid Alaska
night. But the clouds were-
still a fuzzy shroud, hiding
the stars and the waterfalls
of dancing light we knew
were up there.
We trudged back to bed,
fell into a deep winter night's
sleep, and then the alarm
rang at 2 a.m. Same drill, only
this time the other one of us
stuffed his way into winter
gear. When he returned, my
husband said. it was still
cloudy.
I took the next shift at 3
a.m. Alas, cloudy again.
We repeated this routine
the next night, sleepily doing
the night watch duty like
dedicated geologists at an
Arctic outpost, but the danc-
ing lights continued to elude
us.
As the last night ap-
proached, I pondered the
possibility that I might miss
what could be the last chance
in my lifetime to catch the
spectacle.

Meanwhile, our daytime
hours moved pokily at isolat-
ed Chena. The hot springs
pool was heaven, though an
hour of warming ourselves to
the bone was plenty. I took to
looking through the steamy
mist, hoping a suicidal moose
would show up.
We got a lot of reading
done in our no-frills room. We
also took a hike around the
property; it was cold and
unspectacular. This is the flat
part of Alaska with none of
those stunning mountains
seen elsewhere in the state.
We considered hiking in the
nearby forest but weren't
convinced that the grizzlies
had all trundled off to the
hills for their long winter's
nap.
The slothful life wasn't
entirely unpleasant. We both
had deep massages from
Nikki Northstar, a Finnish
masseuse with long blond
braids and an Alaska fron-
tierswoman attitude, who
did treatments in a little log

Even so, three days at
Chena Hot Springs were
enough. Plus, the food -
pricey like food everywhere
in Alaska was as eclectic as
the rest of the ,place. The
prime rib was wonderful, but
eating the layered potato-
cheese dish was like forking
down a warm block of cheese.


The halibut had taken a simi-
lar bad turn, obfuscated by a
mix of navy beans, wine
sauce, olives and pistachios
- flavors all going their own
way rather than blending. I
couldn't complain, though -
I had expected greasy burgers

Visitors to Florida's Hollywood can write their own script


BY CARRIE ALEXANDER
GUEST WRffER

Miles of glistening shore-
line and a lush tropical cli-
mate attract an array of do-
mestic and international visi-
tors to Hollywood, an ocean-
front community between
Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
Upon arrival, they discover
that along with the beauty of
the beaches, the region offers
myriad recreation and enter-
tainment opportunities, from
museums and gardens filled
with educational exhibits to
Everglades tours that provide
a glimpse of alligators and
waterfowl in their natural
habitat. Vacationers also dis-
cover what an adventure
shopping can be when they
visit Sawgrass Mills Mall, with
its designer outlet stores spe-
cializing in everything from
jewelry to antiques.
Hollywood Beach remains
a family-favorite outing, with
its six miles of sun-drenched
sand along the Atlantic
Ocean. The Boardwalk, which
runs parallel to Hollywood
Beach, is a hot spot for people
watching.
Things to do
Whether vacation time is
spent exploring the natural
wonders' of the Atlantic
beaches or hunting for trendy
treasures at Florida's largest
outlet mall, there's plenty in
the Hollywood area to keep
visitors busy. Here are some

PHOTO COURTESY OF EARS
Smokey is a sleek, neutered, male, charcoal-gray cat with an.
unusual undercoat of shining platinum gray. Smokey has the
bearing of an Egyptian cat, and loves to cuddle next to any-
one with a warm lap. He was surrendered by an older resident
who couldn't provide for Smokey any longer. His foster dad
hates to part with Smokey, but must return North shortly to his
own cats and dog. His foster dad has a list of all of Smokey's
favorite foods, activities and playtime interests. This front-
declawed, approximately 7-year-old baby is ready for a forev-
er home; Call Diane Brown, Englewood Animal Rescue
Sanctuary (EARS) at (941) 475-0636 for Smokey's adoption
information.

a decision, you must first put
the request in writing. You
can get the appeal form from
Social Security by calling
(800) 772-1213, or you can
send a signed note with your
Social Security number and
claim number stating that
you wish to appeal the deci-
sion in your case. Social
Security will then reconsider
your claim by reviewing all
the evidence by someone
who had no part in the first
decision. You will be sent a
letter explaining their deci-
sion.
Claimants win reconsider-
ation about 20 percent of the
time.
Level Two hearing
If you disagree with' the
reconsideration ruling, then
you have the right to ask for a


hearing. At this level, one of
Social Security's Admin-
istrative Law Judges (some-
one with no role in the earlier
decisions) will hold a hear-
ing. These hearings are usu-
ally held within 75 miles of a
person's home. You have a
right to be present with wit-
nesses and will be notified of
the time and place of the
hearing. You and your repre-
sentative, if you have one,
should come to the hearing
and explain your case in per-
son. Be prepared for the
judge to ask questions of all
parties, including the wit-
nesses, but don't expect an
immediate decision. This,
too, will come in the mail .
More than half of the
claimants who have a Social
Security disability hearing
win.


Level Three Appeals
Council review
If you're still dissatisfied,
you can ask for a review by
Social Security's Appeals
Council. They can examine
the case and render a deci-
sion themselves, deny the
case, or refer it back to
another Administrative Law
Judge for a review. Again,
they'll send you a letter
explaining their decision.
Level Four -
federal court review .
If you disagree with the
Appeals Council's decision or
if the Appeals Council
decides not to review your
case, you may file a lawsuit in
a federal district court.
Savvy tip


You can get a lawyer or
other qualified person famil-
iar with you and the Social
Security program to help you
appeal your claim. Your local
Social Security office has a
list of organizations that can
help you find a representa-
tive. For more information
on the appeals process visit,
socialsecurity.gov/oha. Social
Security also offers a free
publication, Your Right To
Question The Decision Made

cation No. 05-10058). To get a

LIGHTS from page 8B


least this food showed imagi-
nation.
Besides, the restaurant was
a source of free entertain-
ment. Anyone who has set
foot in a bar in Alaska or has
seen "Northern Exposure"
knows bars are where you get
a real sense of Alaskans. The
bar in the middle of the
resort's restaurant was true to
form. The guys talked really
loud, which is what Alaskans
do in bars because they figure
everyone is so bored they'd
like to hear the story, too. The
fun began when one fellow
got going on some trees he
had planted. He plants them
in titanium afterburners, he
said, titanium afterburners
from 747s. Works real well.
What?!? My husband and I
exchanged looks. Where in
the world do you pick up tita-
nium 747 afterburners in
the plural? Do they fall out of
the sky up here?
Nobody else at the bar
looked puzzled. In fact, the
conversation quickly turned.
The fella this guy was talking
to had a different sort of ques-
tion altogether. He owned a
reindeer ranch down the
road, and one of his reindeer
had jumped the fence and
run off. "'At what point do they
turn into caribou?" he mused.
Reindeer and caribou are
related? Who knew?
By night three, the last
night of our stay, I was getting
the aurora borealis blues. It


had snowed a little that day,
and the skies had cleared.
Maybe this was the night we
would dance with the lights.
We decided to stay up,
watching bad movies on TV
and taking turns throwing on
puffy clothes and tromping
down the stairs and out into
the cold. The best time of
night although the lights
can show up anytime -
tends to be before and after
midnight, Shaw of the Geo-
physical Institute had told
me.
It was a cold night, hover-
ing at zero degrees. Each time
one of us ventured out, the
report was the same the
sky was black and clear, the
stars were twinkling, but no
northern lights.
Then at 1:30 a.m. my
spouse came in and said, "I
think we might see some-
thing."
I jumped into my ski pants
as if he had shouted, "Fire!"
When we got outside, I
could see a pale glow like the
lights of a city on the other
side of the ridge. But there
was no city there. We jumped
into the rental car and drove
down the highway to sit in a
turnout away from the lights
of the resort. But the glow was
still just a faint glow. After 20
minutes, we drove back to
Chena, not feeling a lot of
faith.
Some other light seekers.
were sitting in the parking lot,


engines running as they wait-
ed. But we wanted complete
darkness for shooting photos,
so we drove down a dark road
on the resort's property,
turned off the engine and sat
there staring at the ridge
north of us.
Did the light seem to have
a tinge of green now? I gri-
maced into the darkness,
willing columns of green light
to spring up before my eyes.
That, worked you can get
yourself to hallucinate any-
thing if you strain your eyes
enough. I began to make out
a dim green column. And,
yeah, two dim green col-
umns. I felt stupid, but I said
to my husband, "Well, now
I'm so tired, I'm seeing
things."
And then the columns
grew brighter. It was show-
time! We sprang from the car
to our cameras, which we had
left on their tripods in the
snow, set for a 30-second
exposure with 200 speed film
in one camera, 400 .in the
other. I fumbled with my
gloves, then strained my eyes
to make sure the camera was
pointed in the right direction
- and pressed down on the
shutter release.
For the next 30 minutes,
we hopped in and out of the
car, shuddering and shutter-
ing as green columns showed
up first at this' end of the
ridge, and then down at that
end, flickering like polter-


geists here, then there. Mostly
they were an anemic green,
but at one point they flowed
into the glowing green
streamers of the classic danc-
ing curtain. It lasted but a
moment, but I yelped, "Yeah,
baby, that's what we're talking
about, baby!" It was 4 a.m.
We saw no ethereal blue
pouring of stardust from the
sky, and we saw no red,
although red showed up in
our photos.
Still, I was thrilled.
A week after I got home, I
saw news photos of a splen-
did auroral display in Iowa. A
high level of sunspot activity
can send the light show
south, and there it was -
Iowa got whirling red, blue
and green flamenco dancers,
flashier than my anemic
green poltergeist. And no-
body in Iowa had paid a pen-
ny, gone through three air-
port security checks or waited
in zero degrees to see the
northern lights.-
If you go
Getting there: Fairbanks is
way north in Alaska. We flew
Alaska Airlines from San
Francisco to Seattle to
Anchorage to Fairbanks, a full
day's journey with arrival in
Fairbanks late in the evening,
making an overnight in
Fairbanks logical.
Chena Hot Springs Resort,
PO. Box 58740, Fairbanks, AK
99711; (800) 478-4681. Visit


chenahotsprings.com or e-
mail chenahotspringspolar-
net.com. The resort is 59
miles on paved road north of
Fairbanks and is one of the
best locations in the world for
viewing the northern lights.
The'resort is geared for it,
including optional wake-up
calls and a late-night snow-
mobile trip to a yurt atop a
hill where visitors can stay
warm while waiting for the
lights. Snowmobile trips cost
$65.
Other activities: Chena's
hot springs pool is delightful-
ly soothing. Cross-country
skiing arid dog sledding are
other winter options.
The 72-room hotel and
restaurant are low-key Alas-
ka-style, and the restaurant
food is expensive, running
$17 to $26 for dinner entrees
and $7 to $12 for lunch. We
were glad we had picked up
lunch and snack foods and a
cooler in Fairbanks so we
weren't dependent on the
restaurant for all our meals.
Winter room rates at Chena
start at $135.
Visitors can also go to'
University of Alaska Museum
of the North in Fairbanks.
(907) 474-7581. The museum
has a wonderful photograph-
ic display and film that
explain the science of the
aurora borealis. Open 9 a.m.
to 7 p.m. May 15 -Sept. 15; 9.
a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and
noon to 5 p.m. weekends


Sept. 16-May 14. Admission is
$5 general, $3 ages 7 to 17,
free ages 6 and under.
Catch the light show:
Current predictions for auro-
ra borealis displays in Alaska
are on the University of Alas-
ka's Geophysical Institute
Web site, gi.alaska.edu. Go to
"aurora forecast."
However, buying a plane
ticket last-minute to Alaska .is
prohibitive.
Predicting when you can
see the northern lights is an
inexact science. The auroral
band created by the draw of
the north end of Earth's mag-
netic polar axis is dynamic,
moving north and south.
October and March are
recommended as best-view-
ing months, with March,
which tends to be less cloudy,
suggested by Glenn Shaw,
professor emeritus at the
Geophysical Institute at the
University of Alaska Fair-
banks.
The aurora can be seen
throughout the winter, but
Alaska nights can reach sub-
zero temperatures. Milder
spring and fall nights are
more tourist-friendly.
Another tool for predicting
auroral visibility is to check
when sun storms are predict-
ed. The greatest auroral activ-
ity occurs during solar flare-
ups, which can be predicted
in advance. Visit

'This benefit of seeing... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)

PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE


On a blustery Thursday in
the Intracoastal Waterway
just south of Blackburn Bay,
four young sailors were learn-
ing how to sail, how to right
their boat when it overturned
and how to be pulled into
a boat after going into the
water. ,,
It was all part of the many
lessons one leams as a be-
ginning sailor, which is what
the Venice Youth Boating


Association has been teach-,
ing children ages 9 through 14
each summer since 1969.
The student sailors shown
in the photographs are from
Boy Scout Troop 100 of
Sarasota.
The program originally
;started in 1952 as a program
to be the "seagoing equi-
valent of Little League base-
ball" and named the Pram
Squadron. A pram is chiefly a


New England reference to! a
small dinghy having a flat,
snub-nosed bow.
The Pram Squadron oper-
ated through the Venice Yacht
Club until 1969, when it be-
came the Venice Youth Boat-
ing Association.
The \WBA actually teaches
more than 100 children each
year in its summer basic sail-

Got Paradise? If Not, We Can Install It For You In
About A Day!
It's Called A Pond.
If you've ever seen a pond before, please don't presume that you know what
I'm talking about. I'm not talking about one of those pea-green soup cesspools
that take you hours to maintain everyday. No, I'm talking about a sparkling,
clear, freshwater pond with fish, turtles, blooming flowers, and a magnificent
waterfall. These ponds are aliye, overflowing with life, and they take very little
time to maintain. You don't even have to feed the fish! But, you'll love doing so.
Don't be surprised if you shut off the TV and start spending time around the
pond. Plenty of my customers have reported spending hours outside sitting and
talking to each other (imagine that) and enjoying their pond. So you've been
warned!
Every pond I've installed has changed an owner's life. All my homeowner
customers say they've become the talk of their neighborhood. Everyone wants to
see their pond. All their friends and family members want to spend time around
the pond. One of the best parts is that a pond can increase the value of your
home by thousands of dollars. In other words, installing a pond is a good sound
investment in your home.

OUR VIEW




We'll say it: We need a city parking garage


lans to improve the parking situation
downtown are being bandied about by
the city. The most controversial one so
far, is the thought of making Tampa and
Miami avenues one-way streets, cutting West
Venice Avenue down to two lanes and using
the extra road surface on all three to change
to diagonal parking.
Although the idea which is merely up
for discussion and public input has its
supporters, the consensus of the opinions
expressed by our readers is not just "no," but
"NOOOOOOO!"
We tend to agree, not so much because the
idea is a bad one, but because it wouldn't
even be a Band-Aid on the parking problem,
and likely would make driving downtown
more complicated.
Waving a magic wand and making these
changes would only add 50 or so spaces in a
three-block area when there is a need on a
frequent basis for 10 times that number. Fifty


extra spaces wouldn't even fill the bill for peak
shopping hours during the season, let alone
the demand for parking during all our art
shows, parades, concerts...
Even if the number of spaces to be gained
were significantly higher, we'd still have some
concern about making the drastic changes to
downtown traffic flow necessary to create
them. Many people and not just visitors -
already find navigating through the area diffi-
cult, as vehicles pull out of or into parking
spaces and pedestrians play dodge'em
instead of using crosswalks. Fewer lanes
going east and west seems unlikely to uts to
make things better.
Clearlywe need to add a sizable number of
parking spaces without impeding the flow of
traffic. To us, that spells parking garage.
Then the question becomes, where? There
are several possibilities.
A few years ago then-city manager George
Hunt had a discussion with the First Baptist


Church on Miami Avenue about a joint ven-
ture to put a parking garage on property
across the street from the church. Nothing
came of it. , .
The city already has a parking lot on
Miami west of Althea's and has also talked
about putting a garage there. That wouldn't
add a lot of spaces, but it would help. It also
wouldn't require rerouting traffic, and would
be less obtrusive than a garage on West
Venice Avenue. The samecould be said of a
garage on the lot west of the Venice Little
Theatre.
We think the problem calls for a more
aggressive solution, however one that isn't
limited to property the city already owns.
The largest parking lot downtown-- other
than the. city lot officially known as
Centennial Park lies between the post
office and the Bank of America. There's,
enough room there to add a meaningful
number of spaces; it's far enough west that it


wouldn't create more traffic problems; and it
wouldn't require any reduction of lanes on
West Venice or Tampa avenues.
SAnd that's if the post office stays there.
Plans to build a new facility somewhere in
South Venice have been on' hold for several
years for a lack of funding.
If the mail distribution function could be
relocated to another place reducing the
amount of post office traffic on the island -
a larger parking garage could be built that
incorporated a postal substation, and maybe
a coffee shop or other small businesses in a
facade along West Venice Avenue that doesn't
look so much like a parking garage.
A parking garage, no matter where you put
it,, isn't the only way to attack the downtown
parking problem. We think it has to be a part
of the solution, however, and urge city gov-
ernment to explore the possibilities rather
than settle for an easier fix that really isn't the
best one.


When will it end?


BOB VEDDER
(o lUI IT


So you want to buy a
house. You just had your sec-
ond child and knew you
would have to buy a larger
house when the next little one
came along.
You paid $125,000 for your
house two years ago and now
want one more bedroom and
a little riore storage room for
all the toys, yours 'included.
You go out thinking you could
get one for $175,000 oCnly to
find that you now have to pay
$350,000.
So you .say, I'll move to
North Port, where prices are
cheaper, and there find you.
only have to pay $275,000.
You then regroup and decide,
to 'move back to Ann Arbor,
Mich.
Let me tell you the story of
one of our employees in Port
Charlotte. He was renting and
his house was destroyed in
the hurricane. At the time he
was building a house for
$150,000,
That builder, maybe
because of the hurricane,
went bankrupt. So the
employee went out to build
the same' house, but now he is
being asked to pay $250,000.
He just lost $100,000.
Remember, this is some-
one whose rental house was
destroyed. Oh, and to make
matters worse, he didn't have
renter's insurance.
Let me tell you about a
couple of houses in myneigh-
borhood that just sold. One
sold for the asking price to the
first person who looked. That,
of course, was another realtor.
The one across' the street
that was owned by a nice old
lady sold for $500,000 you
guessed it, to a another real-
tor. This house was in serious
need of repair. She hadn't
invested in the house at all. It
had no pool and the land-
scaping and lawn were shot.
Just this week, a month
after, it was bought, it went
back on the market, with
nothing having been done to
it, for $795,000, more than 50
percent more.
Property is getting bought
and sold at a feverish pace;,
most of it by speculators.
Some night go by the tall'
building just put up next to
the Hatcliett Creek Bridge,
and you will Iee only a few
lights on. While the units have
all'sold long ago, they were.
almost all purchased on spec-
ulation.
The story of the building
going: ip on the gulf where
,the old Best Western was is


even more amazing. Those
tinits were going for more
than $1 million apiece. They
all sold in one week. They did-
n't need to run an ad to sell
the units. Units have already
resold with a profit of
$400,000 and'the place isn't
even built.z
The local board of Realtors
membership has swollen to
more than 800 members, as,
everyone has decided to get
in on the madness and the
money grab. Why not?
The only problem is, how
is someone going to afford to
live here? More and more
often I am hearing that peo-
ple are leaving our area. They
cannot afford to live here any
more.
I sure wish there was a way
'to slow down the money grab
so that a family could buy a
home instead of moving out
of town. In the meantime,
does anyone have a good deal
they want to offer me?

By's Crack:' I've been
doing a lot of research on
home buying. According
to my calculations, the
best time to buy a house is
1962.

I received a letter from a'
parent on my article on Little
League. She very well
described another reason
why some children opt not to
play: bad role models.
She said that for a couple
of years her son was coached
by Kevin Clipse, who she
raved about as an excellent
'instructor, excellent motiva-,
tor just everything you
would want in a coach. Then
her son went to the majors
and got just the opposite.
They found that the coaches
were drinkers, who didn't
teach and were mean to the
children.
She said the thing they
worked at most was picking
up the mothers, even though
they were both married.
Attempts to get things
changed went unanswered.
That made her son not go out
this year. He is now working
on his music and other inter-
ests.
This, I might add, is not a
new problem. There is often
not enough of the highest
Oqualitv coaches to teach,
although you would think
with fewer teams the quality
would be better.

Ashamed at treatment of UMB church


Editor:


I have lived in Sarasota County my whole life and in the city
of Venice 46 years:. I love this city and its people.
But there have been two times when I have been ashamed
of the city. Once was when every teen who happened to be'
walking on Venice Avenue' was rounded up, arrested and
hauled off to the police station because a suspected teenaged
drug dealer was reported to be in the area. This was a night-
mare for those innocent teens and we lost, several families
because of it.
Now we have the second, nightmare: the way our city is
treating the innocent members of Union Missionary Baptist
Church. Though not intentional, the sewage spill was the city's
fault. What is disgraceful is the two-year failure by the city to
clean, repair and restore this church to its members. Two, years!
And it looks like the members of the church will have to foot
some of the bill. Pathetic! ,
All of us living here should put pressure, on our officials to
finish this matter now, for the good of the parishioners, and
quit worrying about insurance.
Get real, Venice.

Life is more than
just existing
Editor:
First, condolences to the
family of Terri Schiavo. There
is no way to describe the loss
of a loved one.
I lost my son in 1985 a
car wreck; the driver died; my
son, 18 years old, was left in a
coma.
After 12 years of very inten-
sive rehab, he walks, talks,
showers and dresses himself.
However,' he needs a lot of
care and assistance because
he is severely visually
impaired.
He lives in a group home,
and when he became aware
of his handicaps, he said, "I
wish I had died with Jeff."
Life without living is not


life. Terri's parents were, hop-
ing for a miracle, as I was; it
doesn't happen.
Her muscles atrophied, her
body was disfigured. The
pleading in Terri's eyes was
not for life (in my opinion),
but for an end to her suffer-


ing.
I will grieve for
but Terri's parents
find closure.


Families left to g

Editor:
This missive is i
Bob Vedder's hea
tion, Where did


go? His suggested answers do'
not fully explain the lack of
children in the Venice Little.
Leagueprogram.
Actually, many children
have left town with their par-
ents and gone to places like
North Port because of die lack
of, affordable housing.
Minimal work-force housing
makes it impossible foryoung.
families to live in the Venice
area. The average. age in
Venice (68) contrasts sharply
with'North Port's (38).
Governmental policies like
large lot sizes, low density and
high impact fees have created
a community of rich senior
citizens. We depend on a,
work force that increasingly
lives outside the area. It will
only get worse unless govern-
ment addresses the problem.
This lack of diversity and
urban vitality will eventually
make Venice a very dull place
indeed.

In August 1970 1 arrived in

Sarasota Memorial Hospital

In 1973 Carl Soresi of

14A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN SUNDAY, APRIL 3, 2005


LET 'EM HAVE IT! Do you approve of all the new and
pending developments long Laurel Road? CALL 207-1111.


Where's my turn arrow at Publix?


Green arrows. Why don't they have green turn arrows going
into Publix on the island? They also need them all along
Business 41. There was almost an accident there yesterday,
with people going south trying to get into Publix and those
northbound didn't even slow up. They need turn signals from
Publix to Miami Avenue. Somebody's going to get killed.


Bad enough. Please leave
the downtown streets as they
are and not add additional
parking by making one-way
streets. Traffic is bad enough
now; don't make it worse.
Perspective. I was calling
about the Venice Gondolier
Sun being delivered three
days a week: I think it's a great
idea. I think it's a good busi-
ness decision, and I'm going
to keep receiving the paper.
We ought to keep in mind
that there's always going to be
people that just complain for
the sake of complaining, and
if the worst thing in their life is
that the newspaper is not
delivered on the day they
would like it, they've really got
a nice life.
Uncoordinated. The new
emergency call system notify-
ing local residents has one
flaw: It does not coordinate
with other municipalities in
our area. The city of Veniice
has got to start thinking
beyond its borders and it's got
to start thinking about coor-
dinating with others. The
problem is going to be this
type of system really needs to
have calls coming in from
another area and those calls
need to be coordinated so
that the phone grid in the
area doesn't fall apart in an
emergency. That is being
done. The city of Venice was
well aware of the program
and refused to get involved.
They lone-wolfed it and went
off on their own. This same
thing happened when they
privatized the management
of the utilities department
without giving Sarasota
County the opportunity to
bid. Sarasota County, from
the projections we have seen,
could do it for one-third the
price. It was really a slap in the
face considering Sarasota
County owns half of the
Eastside Wastewater
Treatment Plant.
Hard already. No way for
one-way avenues. It's hard
enough to park downtown as
it is. We can't get to Epiphany
or the post office.
Nap time. I live in South
Venice and I'm annoyed at
the constant airplane noise
all daylong. All daylong noisy
little propeller planes drive
circles above. They either
practice or joyride. But why
must they do it over my head?
Old-timers like me need to
take an afternoon nap; this
makes it impossible. Could
we not have an ordinance
saying they cannot fly over
residential areas? Let them fly
'over the gulf there's plenty
of room, and if they forget to
turn around, that's OK too.
Imposition. Venice should
not impose upon North Port
for use of Sarasota land taken
for tax purposes. Venice has
enough properties or are
they too expensive to put
cheaper homes on?
Properties have gone for
$13,000, $19,000, $20,000 per
lot why didn't they buy
them up?
S: One way. Relieve island
traffic congestion. Heading
north on Business 41 have a
green arrow turning west
onto Tampa and make Tampa
one way west.
That's nothing. In a city
that thinks a four-story build-
ing on the island is going to be
an eyesore, how pleasing is it
going to be to see backflow
pipes sticking out of every
front yard? Somebody really
needs to rethink this. Talk
about an eyesore. This will
trulybe it.
The what? Please check on
the use of the Staten (?)
Premise of keeping traffic
flowing freely by three-
minute red lights.
Left-lane lovers. All year
long you can discover a car
that is a left-lane lover. Left-
lane lovers are a strange
breed, hugging a passing lane
they don't 'need. Headed for


someplace out of sight, ignor-
ing courteous, slow traffic
keep right. Firmly pro-
grammed in its place, it
weaves along at a snail's pace.
With turn signals not what
they seem, and baffled by
traffic lights of green, it picks
the busiest roads in town to
pull right out and then slow
down. And you need a calen-
dar to time its turns as it pulls
out of line. See blinking lights
from its brakes? It's scared to
death, for heaven's sake.
During rush hours you will
find it seeks out others of its
kind. You have surely
screamed this plea: How'd
these cars get ahead of me?
Be patient; don't cuss or pant.
These cars are just unaware
or ignorant.
Slow down. When I first
moved to beautiful Venice
island, the highest speed limit
was 35 mph. I was dismayed
to see the new South Bridge at
45 mph. When the kids come
for school and people are cut-
ting off from the bypass, they
continue that speed and real-
ly jam up the traffic by Publix,
where it reduces back to 35. I1
think that sets up in diem thdie
mindset that we're now a
faster pace here. What do we
have to do to reduce that


speed limit to 35 mph on our
island?
Shoot them. If the police
don't want to arrest the peo-
ple who block the intersec-
tion at Venice Avenue and
Business 41, why not install a
camera that will photograph
their license plate and auto-
matically issue citations?
Reconsider. I'm calling to
say I agree with the many
other subscribers who do not
like your new publication
schedule, particularly the
Sunday edition. It's excessive
on Sunday as most of us also
receive a major newspaper. I
would much prefer to have
my Saturday Gondolier Sun
back. I urge you to reconsider
your schedule. I feel you will
be losing many subscribers if
you do not. Please listen to
your subscription base.
Loves it. I'm calling about
the people who are com-
plaining about the Gondolier
Sun coming out on Sunday. I
don't understand the prob-
lem: either hold it until
Monday and read it or throw
it away. I love the Gondolier
coming out three times a
week.
Don't stop. I'm calling
about your paper coming out
on Sunday: I love it. Don't
stop, please.
Too much. The Sunday
paper is too much for me to
read. I'm going to have to can-
cel my delivery. Please go
back to the way it was, on
Wednesday and Saturday.

Congress.

An old friend and editor of
ours, lohn Edmondson,
passed along a front-page
story in the Charlotte
Observer about how
President Bush had slashed
funds for beach renourish-
ment. He said it was interest-
ing how parallel the problems
of the Carolinas and Florida,
and particularly Venice, are.


The Hermitage, which is
on Manasota Key, is a retreat
for artists sponsored by the
Arts Council. It got a full-page
mention in Florida History
and Arts magazine.
It is a nice way to bring very
talented artists of all varieties
to this area to work on pro-
jects in relative solitude. They,
in turn, have to give back to
the community by giving lec-
tures, teaching a class or
some other contribution.

The Gondolier Sun is spon-
soring a photo contest with the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce. The winning pho-
tos will likely be featured in the
annual visitors guide book.
There are four categories:
community ev ens and educa-
tion: sports and recreation:
business, shops and restau-
rants; and aris, leisure and
nature. April 22 is the deadline.
You can get the entry form
from the chamber or in our
paper once in awhile. There
are some money prizes.


Florida Trend put out some
population and income fig-
ures for the counties of
Southwest Florida. To my sur-
prise,. Sarasota County did
not have the highest percent-
age of population over 65.
Charlotte County won that
prize, having more than 34
percent while, Sarasota
County was 30 percent. On
the income side, only Collier
county has a higher per-capi-
ta incoine. Theirs was just
$500 more than the $46,311 in
Sarasota County. Charlotte
County, in contrast, has an
inconie of $29.000. It is inter-
esting that 42 percent of the
income in Sarasota County
comes from property.

Public transportation is not
a joke, it is a very generous ser-
vice provided by the taxpayer,
even though it is not a money-
making proposition. The same
with taxis. There are few taxi
companies simply because
there is not enough business
for them. Music is anathema?
Where has the writer been?
There are more musical events
offered here than any other
place I have lived.
Then there is the derogato-
ry reference to the "well-to-


do." Most likely they worked
hard all their lives, had few
vacations and now make up
for it in their later days. They
are proud of being well-to-do
and should be.
As far as referring to older
people as drunk drivers,
please check out the ages of
drivers involved in accidents.
More often than not they are
impatient younger people.
Another reason we like it
here is the many churches, all
of which welcome par-tinme


residents. Moreover, it is easy
to get to a doctor; nowhere
are there steps to climb: you
can go walking in the parks,
and bicNcling; and there are
no hills.
:-o-Mpst of the things the

Mother's love
A woman has a history of
leaving her two children
alone for hours at a time, a
Venice Police Department
report shows.
Tina Hanlon, 37, 800 block
Knights Trail Road, Venice,
was arrested and charged
with neglect of a child.
The incident happened at
Hanlon's trailer at 6 p.m.,
March 22. She was arrested\
three days later.
According to the arrest
report, Hanlon left her trailer
between 6-7 p.m. and went to
see a neighbor.
She left her two children,
ages 5 and 8, home alone.
She told the neighbor she
would be gone for 15 minutes
and asked if he would watch
her children. She said they
were asleep.
The neighbor told Hanlon
he was on probation and not
permitted to have unsuper-
vised visits with minors.
Nonetheless, she threw the
keys at him and left.
The man said he never had
contact with the children.
Park residents told police
Hanlon often leaves her chil-
dren alone.
At 9:30 p.m., VPD K-9
Officer Paul Freeman talked
to the children.
They said their mother
went to the store and would
be coming home soon.
At 10 p.m., Freeman found
Hanlon's cell phone number
and called her.
She said she was on her
way home from Port


Charlotte.
At 10:45, Freeman called
her again.
She said she had a flat tire
and would be home in five
minutes.
Hanlon got home at 11
P.m.
She admitted drinking a
40-ounce beer, but derfiJd
using drugs.
Hanlon tried to tell officers
she had done nothing wrong
and said she was home for the
night.
Freeman said he would be
contacting the Florida
Department of Children and
Families. Then he left.
At 11:50 p.m., Freeman was
dispatched to Hanlon's trailer
again. He found the children
alone and could not find
Hanlon.
At 4:20 a.m., Hanlon still
had not returned.
Police took the children to
a relative.

-LANDSCAPING& GARDENING
Now that summer is around the corner what should we do
c. Clan up the yard, pull weeds and cut back the shrubs. -
2. Plant new annuals. The winter annuals won't hold up due to the
heat of the summer. What you planted up north in the summer is
what we plant in the winter. Geraniums might hold up till July or if
you plant them in part shade they will last you several years. We
have a nice selection of annuals in at the present.
3. Fertilize your shrubs and grass. Put out some type of lawn
insecticide. If you don't, you will pay later for a new yard. Our
insects are very bad on the lawn in the summer.
4. Desert Rose plants need to be transplanted now if they
need it.
If you are new around Venice, we at Duke Garden Center
can help you plant, take care of your lawn, and shrubs. WINNER
Your citrus trees need attention so if you don't know what to do
next, come in, talk to our helpful clerks and they will be
able to help you out with your problems.
Come into DUKE GARDEN CENTER and let us help
you. ; *'


CHOOSING A TOOTHPASTE
The choice of a toothpaste is not as important to your oral hygiene as
brushing often, properly, and sufficiently long. A tooth paste that
combines a very mild abrasive and a safe detergent is the most
effective way to clean teeth. If you add fluorides to the paste, dental
decay and gum line sensitivity could be reduced. The fluoride can also
repair beginning decay by promoting remineralization of enamel. Some
tooth pastes contain harsher abrasives to remove tobacco stains.
Although they can be effective, daily use may cause excessive wear,
and produce areas of hypersensitivity. Do not brush with table salt
because it is excessively abrasive. Baking soda, popular in the past, it
not as effective as modern toothpastes. Unless one forms a great deal
of tartar, tartar-reducing toothpaste shows only slight advantage over
regular pastes.,
Get a paste that you like the taste of,, is approved by the
American Dental Association and then use it properly.

LOOKING FOR REGULAR INCOME?
CONSIDER BONDS.

By staggering your bond investments, you can receive
a monthly interest check instead of one check every
six months. You'll get a regular income stream, which
makes your overall planning much easier. Call me to
find out more about monthly bond interest checks.

Investors should keep in mind that as interest, rates
rise existing bond prices of already-outstanding fixed-
income securities tend to fall. Long-term bonds are
generally more exposed to interest rate risk than
short-term bonds.
