Expect downtown height caps this year


One of city council's goals for 2005 is adopting an
ordinance not allowing any building taller than
35 feet between U.S. 41 Business and Venice
Beach.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWSEDITOR

Council member Bill Wil-
Ison accused attorney Greg .
Roberts of trying to "circum-
vent council's wishes" during
last Tuesday's city council
meeting.
The comment seemed to
catch Roberts, whose clients
want to build a four-story


building downtown, and
some others in the audience
by surprise. Debate revolved,
around a resident's legal
standing to challenge a spe-
cial exception for height at
215-217W Venice Ave.
Eventually, council voted
4-2 in favor of hearing the de
novo appeal, against the legal
advice of City Attorney Bob
Anderson.


Light was shed onWillson's
strong comments during Fri-
day's strategic planning work-
shop for city council and
charter officers. During 2005,
expect to see height overlay
districts running from U.S. 41
Business all the way to Venice
Beach come up for council
approval.
Willson, just elected to
council last fall, is pushing the
hardest to pass a 35-foot cap
with no exceptions.
"My vision is preserving
the downtown," Willson said.
"I'm very clear on that, pre-
serving the quaint downtown


that we all know and love. We
can save the downtown."
Friday's decision was not
so specific as
Willson's call
for 35 feet.
Council will
soon vote on
a height dis-
trict that ruis
%vest of city
hall along.
WVest Venice
Willson Avenue to the
beach, and
the workshop's directive
pushes staff to create another
district that goes from city


hall to U.S. 41 Business.
The two days of workshop
planning covered everything
from employee relations, fi-
nancial practices and envi-
ronmental compliance to
future development policies..
None of what happened
Friday is official yet. Council
must meet in regular session
and approve a report that
outlines and details all direc-
tives.
In all his years on council,
Mayor Dean Calamaras has
been to 16 of these annual
planning sessions.
This year saw no real sur-


prises on policy directives
from his fellow council mem-
bers, Calanmaras said.
The real benefit is the
relaxed atmosphere and dis-
cussions between council
members and charter offi-
cers. Despite being open to
the public, only a couple of
residents and the Venice
Gondolier Sun attended the
meetings.
Council members brain-
stormed and joked with each
other as they searched for
ideas.

BICYCLE SAFETY: EDUCATION NEEDED FOR DRIVERS AND RIDERS

Sharing the roads safely


BYRENEELEPERE
STAFF WRITER

The only memory Eric Welch
has about the truck that hit him
was it was newer and red.
"Eric lay on the road and no one
stopped," said his mother, Jerilee


Doyle. "I can't believe no one
stopped."
Including the driver.
Welch was riding his bicycle.
around 8 p.m. March 15 when he
crossed the street. Welch, 16, told
his mother he looked both ways.
But a mid-size pickup truck came


around the comer, hit him and
kept on going.
"All I could think about was that
little girl who died in (Port
Charlotte) after that nurse killed
herinahit-and-run," Doyle said. "I
said, 'My God that could have been
my son'."


Welch, luckily, escaped with
only an ankle injury that put him
on crutches for several weeks.
While the driver of the truck
broke the law by not stopping,
Welch himself broke several. He
was riding a bike after dark with-
out proper reflectors. The bike did-


n'r have lights. He was not wearing
a helmet.
' "He has the proper reflectors on
now," Doyle said. "And he now has
a helmet. But he's afraid to ride
now."

Venice ready to donate land to Habitat. for Humanity

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
ANTHONY MORLEY


Of the three govermunental
bodies being asked to donate
land, Venice appears the most
willing to assist Venice Area
Habitat for Humanity.
There are simply a few
small questions about the,
amount of land, location,
home designs and legal guar-
antees the affordable homes
don't turn into money-gener-
ators for Realtors.
City Manager Marty Black
and Habitat Executive Direct-
or Judy Wilcox have been
working the past year to iden-
tify land Venice is willing to
donate., While Black is not
prepared to name locations,
he said the only major hurdle
before placing a proposal
before council members for a
vote are binding agreements
to prevent the donations


from being gobbled up by
developers.
Habitat's legal offices are,
closing in on a solution,,
Wilcox said, so it's only a mat-
ter of time before city council
must decide whether Habitat
for Humanity is allowed to
build its first home within city
limits.
"We're very anxious to
partner with governments,"
Wilcox said. "We're reviewing
how to build more homes on
less property.
"This is home ownership,
not subsidized housing, and
our families are very proud.
...We're on the cutting edge,
as far as land trusts and work-
ing with governments."
So far, the reception by
North Port and Sarasota
County commissioners has
not been as warm. Habitat
asked for a donation of 100
lots out of the 2,200 within


North Port city limits about to
be auctioned off in order to
recover delinquent taxes.
County commissioners
passed the buck Wednesday,
saying they'll donate 50 lots if
North Port does.
"I'm very disappointed
they're not coming forward,"
Wilcox said. "In talking with
them, they said there are too
many nonprofits wanting'
properties to grant one and
not the other.
"Hopefully, North Port will
step forward and donate
some land. We really would
like to improve workforce
housing there."
Venice projects
Two council members,
Rick.Tacy. and Vice Mayor
John Moore, have been out-
spoken and called for staff to
work toward a proposal they'
can consider.
Qualified buyers of Habitat
homes in South County gen-
erally receive a $75,000 to
$85,000 interest-free mort-
gage, Wilcox said. The guar-
antee against reselling is a

Proctor Road widening begins this summer
A major construction project to widen and make other roadway, drainage and
utilities improvements to Proctor Road will begin this summer.
The Board of County Commissioners has awarded a $2.8 million contract to
Palmetto-based Westra Construction Corporation for the first phase of the project,
which will widen Proctor Road from two lanes to four lanes from just west of Gantt
Avenue, Ic just east of Honore Avenue The finished roadway will complete the
four-lane section between Cattlemen Road and HonoreAvenue.
Construction, which is slated'to begin in June, will include landscaping,
conrislructior of bie arnes. street lighting and sidewalks The stormwater pond at
the corner of Proc:tor and Honore will be enlarged to accommodate additional
drainage. Water and sewer mains will be replaced and upgraded.
This initial phase is being funded by infrastructure surtax continuation funds,
road impact fees, and the Utilities Capital Improvement Fund. It is expected to be
completed by the end of January 2006. Phase Two of the project, which will
widen Proctor Road from Honore Avenue to Mclntosh Road, is set to begin in
2008.
For more information, contact Sarasota County Public Works at (941) 861-
5000.

Water conservation efforts recognized
The Sarasota Board of County Commissioners, during Iheir proclamation of
April as Waler Conservaltcn Month at their meeting on April 12, recently
recognizedd two local citizeris for heir oulstanding efforts in conserving water.
Through partnership with county and regional water managers, Venice Golf
and Counlry Club manager James Schell saves approximately 125 million
gallons of water annually. He spearheaded a project to collect stormwater runoff
from his community and then recycle it back into the community for irrigation.
Venice Golf and Country Club also has been awarded Audubon International
Cedrlifcalion for its golf courses and for preserving and creating wildlife habitats
while reducing the quantity and improving Ihe quality of stormwater runoff.
In Venice, Lakeside Woods Soulh Homeowners Association, through the
leadership of LamontAndrews, was instrumental in making changes in the
operation of their irrigation system thus reducing irrigation water use by four
million gallons annually. They achieved this by calibrating the irrigation system to
apply half-inch per watering event, using a soil probe to check soil moisture,
using a rain gauge to check rainfall, and capping irrigation wells.
Statewide, local governments are declaring April as Water Conservation
Month. Governor Jeb Bush will sign a statewide proclamation on April 19.

Recalculating school success




DOE caves, asks feds to ease NCLB rules


The Florida Department of Education proposes a
revised state plan to meet NCLB rules that could
increase the number of schools that make the
grade from 331 to 981 by recalculating success.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


They stuck to their guns for
as long as they could, saying
Florida would not seek to
lower standards under the No
Child Left Behind Act. But
that's arguably what the Flor-
ida Department of Education
proposed recently with a
revised state plan to imple-
ment NCLB rules.
Education advocates
across the state have been
pushing for numerous
changes to ease NCLB rules
ever since the act passed into
law in 2001.
In a letter to U.S. Secretary
of Education Margaret Spell-
ings dated April 1, Florida's
education commissioner
John Winn set out arguments
to ameliorate the state's two
clashing education stan-
dards, proposing three specif-
ic changes that make it easier
on paper for schools to suc-
ceed under NCLB.
"My intent is to fully inte-
grate the best of Florida's A+
system and NCLB so that only
those schools truly in need of
improvement are identified
for assistance and interven-
tion," Winn said.


Support
The three amendments are
supported by the Florida
School Boards Association
and the Sarasota County
School Board.
"Having so many schools
succeed on the A+ Plan when
nearly all of them fail NCLB is
ludicrous," said Laura Ben-
son, who serves on the Sara-
sota County School Board,
and is a director on the FSBA
board.
"It doesn't begin to reflect
the amazing growth of stu-
dent performance as shown
by other measurements. It's
purely a function of the per-
formance standards of NCLB
as established by the state of
Florida that make this so."
Associate Superintendent
Lori White acknowledged the
district's support for Winn's
proposal, but said, from an
educator's viewpoint, the
amendments won't change
much.
"In some ways it won't
change the work we have to
do. I understand the rationale
for the proposed changes, but
the challenge remains the./
same. We want every child
achieving at proficient levels,"'.
White said.


Lower targets
The first amendment pro-
posed by Florida's DOE would
revise proficiency targets for
reading and math. Current
NCLB rules expect 48 percent
of Florida schools to make
adequate yearly progress in
reading for the next three
years run-
ning. Every
fourth year
i the percent of
schools that
are expected
to meet AYP is
increased by
roughly 17
percent.
Winn F 1 orida
would like to
meet a gradual, annual
increase of 7 percent. A simi-
lar change is proposed for
math AYP targets.
In effect, instead of 48 per-
cent of schools being expect-
ed to make AYP during the
2004-05 school year, only 37
percent would be expected to
meet that target under Flor-
ida's revised plan, rising to 44
percent for 2005-06.
By 2013 100 percent of
schools are expected to meet
adequate yearly progress,
under both the federal and
state plans.
The state's proposed plan
would allow the district to
make slower gains in the
short term, until the 2008-09
school year, when gains
would need to exceed the fed-


eral targets in order to meet
the 100 percent target.
In the time it takes for
Spellings to sign off on the
state plan, Florida would see
an increase in the number of
schools that currently make
AYP from 331 to 541, accord-
ing to the district.
Raise threshold
A second amendment
would revise the subgroup
calculation, in effect reducing
the number of subgroups in
each school that might fail to
meet AYE Any one subgroup
that fails to meet proficiency
fails the entire school under
NCLB rules.
The amendment would
maintain the current sub-
group 'size of 30 students
(subgroups include low-in-
come students, minority stu-
dents and special education
students), but it must repre-
sent 15 percent of the total
school population under the
proposal before the perfor-
mance of the subgroup
would be counted toward the
school's rating.
Using revised proficiency
targets and revised subgroups
(both amendment 1 and
amendment 2), Florida
would see an increase in the
number of schools that make
AYP from 331 to 788 schools.
Alternative to AYP
A third amendment re-
places the current "safe har-


bor" measure with a "learning
gains" measure as an alterna-
tive way to meet AYE
The safe harbor measure is
similar to giving extra credit
for a subgroup that is not at a
level considered proficient
yet has showed learning
gains.
The new model scraps the
complicated safe harbor cal-
culation and instead would
judge subgroups purely on a
simpler, more school-friendly
learning gains calculation
(the percent increase in profi-
ciency for a given subgroup
from one year to the next).
In essence, more schools
will be able to show they
improved over the previous
year than can show they meet
proficiency targets.
The district estimates an-
other 194 schools would meet
AYP by using the new learning
gains calculation. If all three
of the, amendments are
okayed by the feds, Florida
would see an increase in the
number of schools that make
AYP from 331 to 981 schools.
"We believe that learning
gains will become the nation-
a] norm within five years, and
Florida should lead the way,"
Winn said.
Not far enough
Education advocates un-
happy with NCLB have criti-
cized Gov. Bush since last
year, when he announced
that he considers more than


two thirds of Florida's schools
"high performing" even
though under NCLB more
than three-quarters do not
meet adequate yearly pro-
gress.
'After nearly a year of ig-
noring public outcry over the
chaos being caused by clash-
ing state and federal educa-
tion standards Gov. Jeb Bush's
administration had finally
done an about face and
admitted the problem needs
to be addressed," said John
Hein, executive director of
Communities for Quality
Education.
CQE and other main-
stream educational institu-
tions have been seeking
alignment of Florida's A+ Plan
with the state's plan to meet
requirements under the fed-
eral No Child Left Behind Act.
Hein is pleased the state
made the formal appeal ask-
ing the federal government to
look at alternatives in its cal-
culations, but CQE thinks the
changes don't go far enough.
"We would like to see addi-
tional substantive changes in
assessments," said CQE
spokesman Damien Filer.
CQE supports using multi-
ple assessments instead of
one high-stakes test, and
assessments done over time
instead of the current snap-
shot approach.

Historical ordinance questioned


'Round' houses to go on the road,


Council members read the historic preservation
law as taking away property owner rights, but the
Venice Historical Commission disagrees.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


It's not an accident council
member Fred Hammett does-.
n't live in one of the architec-
tural themed districts.
Nor is it an accident he
doesn't live in a gated com-
munity or a registered historic
house. In his opinion, each
one diminishes a property
owner's rights.
And that is why he refused
to endorse proposed changes
to Venice's historic preserva-
tion ordinance.
Hammett doesn't take
exception to the proposed
changes. Instead, he points to
what he calls previously
approved flawed language
that allows someone else to
decide whether your home is
a historic structure and what
you're allowed to do with it.
"I look at that, and there
must be 10 things there I took
objection to," Hammett said
Friday, three days after coun-
cil refused to vote on the
amendments and authorized
a workshop with Venice His-
torical Commission. "To me,
this is the time to get it fixed."
All of this is a result of con-
fusion and misunderstanding
about what the national and
local registries of historical
buildings actually,does, said
Janis Fawn, chair of Venice
Historical Commission.
Placement on the Venice
registry of historic structures
is completely voluntary, and
only a property owner can
apply to make that happen.
While a registered home be-
comes eligible for tax incen-
tives and grants, it also has
limitations on what types of
alterations may be done and
all but eliminates demolition,
except in the most extreme
cases.
S".ey seemed to feel this is
autocratic and ridiculous,"
Fawnr said. "But I- .went
through it again, and it in-
cludes all of the. suggestions
from (state lawmakers). It is
even considered a little weak
because it is all voluntary....
We are very conscientious of
the homeowner's rights."
Fawn points to the ordi-
nance provision that states
nomination to the local regis-
ter can only be done by the
property owner.
Hammett, however, points
to the historical board's pow-
ers and duties to identify and
nominate properties to the
National Register of Historic
Places.
There are no limitations on
individual property rights
under the national registry,
Fawn said, and an owner can
refuse designation even if it's
awarded. Only the Venice reg-
istry affects alteration and
demolition,- and that is the
designation requiring owner
approval.
"The national register does
not alter homeowner rights,"
Fawn said. "You can register

Florida's A+) seem to be good
at identifying problems, but
they they don't offer solutions.
Even the proposed amend-
ments to the state's NCLB
plan won't go far enough to
bring the two systems into
alignment," Filer said.
The administration's posi-
tion stands in stark contract
to the position taken earlier in
the year when MacKay Jime-
son, spokesman for the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation, said it's unlikely the
department will agree to
change the guidelines for
determining what schools
make AYP Hein said.
The U.S. Department of
Education isn't expected to
make a decision on the pro-
posal for at least two months.

today and demolish tomor-
row."


None of the new parts of
the ordinance were chal-
lenged. Debate last Tuesday
was supposed to be about
changing the historic board's
name to Historic Preservation
Committee, making it eligible
for grants, and empowering
the board with oversight of
preserving historic buildings.
Other council news
Also at last Tuesday's city
council meeting:
DEP compliance -
Council approved a pair of
spending requests to remain
in compliance with Florida'
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, orders, a result
of last year's civil lawsuit set-
tlement with DEP concerning
wastewater plant violations.
Venice must spend up to
$195,000 so a state engineer
can review reclaimed water
storage operations, and up to
$120,000 as an in-kind project'
to meet financial penalties.
New welcome signs -
Resident George Holland had
the winning design for the
new Welcome to Venice signs.
Holland, a signmaker by
trade, will receive a certificate
and $100 prize.


Council voted on the four
finalists from the contest to
design the city's new sign.
Holland's sign also received
the most citizen votes during
public workshops.
Mileage reimbursement
- City workers will get a few
extra cents for mileage reim-
bursement. Council approved
setting the amount at the IRS
standard rate of 40.5 cents per
mile.
Water Conservation
Month Mayor Dean Cala-
maras presented a proclama-
tion to a pair of water depart-
ment superintendents desig-
nating April as Water Con-

Ruiz of the engineering de-
partment received a 25-year
service award.
Solid Waste change -
Council heard first reading of
an interlocal agreement be-
tween the city and county for
solid waste disposal. The
change is needed to allow for
refunding of the 1996 bonds-
for better interest rates, ac-
cording to Public Works Di-

Sen. Bill Nelson stood with his leader, Sen. Harry Reid,
on the steps of the U.S. Capitol the day he promised to
halt most Senate business, rather than allow a simple, up-
or-down vote on the President's judicial candidates.

There is only one reason Sen. Nelson and fellow liberals
are desperate to block these judges: they would easily
be confirmed by a majority of the Senate, because they'
represent the President's mainstream American values.

We've seen enough nonsense on the federal courts, from
activist judges who demonstrate:

NO MERCY-Judges allowed Terri Schiavo to die of
thirst. Had she been an animal, a condemned killer, or
even a terrorist, they would have stepped in immediately.
But Terri had the misfortune to be innocent.

NO HUMANITY-Judges protect the doctors who
routinely puncture the skulls of nearly-delivered children
and then vacuum out their brain matter, killing them in
the abominable practice known as partial birth abortion.


Saved from the wrecker's ball, five decagonal
Deltec homes will be moved Monday to Buchan
Field and Kiwanis Park for use as a field station
for pilots at the airport and an education center
for Englewood Environmental Learning Center.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


With permits finally in
place, five oddly-shaped
structures will appear on the
Tom Adams Bridge 'early
Monday morning.
Crews from R.E. Johnson
and Sons House Movers will
transport five decagonal Del-
tec homes from the Charlotte
County side of Manasota Key
to Kiwanis Park and Buchan
Airport on Monday and Wed-
nesday.
The first two homes will be
moved at 3 a.m. on Monday,
followed by the other three
homes at 3 a.m. on Thursday.
Both moves will be complet-
ed by 6 a.m., according to
county officials, so the project
does not interfere with rush-
hour traffic.
The movement was origi-
nally anticipated to occur in
mid-March but permitting
problems in both Charlotte
and Sarasota counties delay-
ed the plan.
Each house will travel over
the Tom Adams Bridge in
Charlotte County to State
Road 776 and head north to
Old Englewood Road and


Buchan Airport with a police
escort.
Once installed at Buchan
Field and Kiwanis Park, one
house will be turned into a
field station for pilots at the
airport. The other four homes
will be used by the Engle-
wood Environmental Learn-
ing Center as an education
center.
Rare move
In March, county commis-
sioners approved a loan of
$120,000 to the Englewood
Community Redevelopment
Area to purchase the buildings
from the Hermitage Associ-
ation and complete the move.
The Hermitage Associ-
ation can then use the money
to renovate the last building
on its site, part of a years-long
effort to renovate the oldest
structures on the Sarasota
County side of the Key and
turn it into an artists' retreat.
The owner of the property
where the homes are located'
wanted to construct condo-
miniums on the property and
planned to derholish the
buildings which were built on
Manasota Key in the 1970s.
After county commission-


NO DECENCY-A judge threw .out the prosecution
of videos that depict women being raped, mutilated and
defecated upon. No- one doubts these videos are legally
obscene, but this judge single-handedly threw out the rule
of law, declaring obscenity statutes unconstitutional.

NO RESPECT-Though a judge can find protection for
obscenity videos, many find the Ten Commandments
inappropriate for public display. They quote laws of foreign
countries-and even an unratified U.N. Treaty, rather
than our own Constitution, when it suits their fancy.

The President has the constitutional right to appoint
federal judges and the Senate has the duty to vote them up
or down. Sen. Nelson wants to use the filibuster to block
the vote, in a way that hasn't been used on judges in 216
years of Senate tradition.

It's time to call him on it. Call all of his offices and tell him
simply:

Vote, YES or NO, But VOTE on the JUDGES!

Skate park needs
GPA standard?
Local resident Norm Lupo
is pushing Venice City Coun-
cil, Sarasota County and the
South County Family YMCA
to impose grade point aver-
age restrictions on any teens
wanting to use the public
skate park on Center Road.
Speaking as co-chair of
Taxpayers for Better Schools,
Lupo pointed to how ex-
tracurricular activities at pub-
lic schools all require mini-
mum academic standards.
TBS, a committee of the
Venice Taxpayers League, be-


lives the YMCA, should turn
away any teen who does not
have at least a 2.0 GPA.
Venice and Sarasota Coun-
ty each contributed $100,000
to build the park, which
opened late last year.
."We therefore suggest, in
the interest of better educa-
tional results and promoting
an incentive for achieving
them, that this minimum
GPA be endorsed by the city
and county at this and all
other county skate parks
being supported or subsi-
dized with public tax dollars,"
Lupo said to council at
Tuesday's meeting.


There was no discussion
among council members
about Lupo's proposal.
Finance director
interviews
The top three candidates
to fill the long-vacant finance
director position will be visit-
ing and interviewing with city
council members this week,
according to Mayor Dean
Calamaras, who is in charge
of charter officer search com-
mittees.
A recommendation could
be reached by next Friday. Or,
if council members are not
impressed with any of the


candidates, the search may
have to start over.
Venice has been without a
full-time finance director
since the retired Mike Mc-
Phail's replacement abruptly
quit last August without prior
notice.
All the candidates are cer-
tified public accountants,
according to Calamaras.
Early voting at
Anderson Center
Venice City Council has
approved using the Robert L.
Anderson Administration
Center as the site for early
voting.


In a report from City Clerk
Lori Stelzer, the local elec-
tions supervisor, she states
that Florida law requires a
municipality provide early
voting 15 days prior to an
election, which includes a.
total of eight weekend hours.
Stelzer's options listed for
compliance included:
Have early voting at the
Robert L. Anderson Adminis-
tration Center at a charge of
eight overtime hours for Sara-
sota County elections staff to
cover weekend hours.
Have the early voting
within city limits at city hall.
However, this would require


training city staff on how to
operate the voting machines
and assisting voters during
regular office hours and
weekends. A secure location
throughout the 15-day period
also would have to be main-
tained.
Adopt new ordinances in
order to opt out of early vot-
ing or change the dates. Stel-
zer states that several other
municipalities have passed
similar ordinances.
In the report to council,
Stelzer recommended having
early voting at the Robert L.
Anderson Administration
Center.


SCHOOL BOARD NOTES


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

OK to offer pre-K
Education commissioner
John Winn gave Sarasota
schools the official okay to
offer voluntary prekinder-
garten education beginning
next school year. In a memo
dated April 12, Winn contact-
ed school superintendents


apprising them ofVPK certifi-
tcation.
Eight districts were found
not to be in compliance with
class-size requirements, and,
are therefore ineligible to
offer VPK programs next year.
VPK 'certification does not
require districts to offer the
program.
"Florida has a unique
opportunity to impact the
lives of young children by


preparing them for successful
entry into kindergarten
through quality voluntary
pre-K programs," Winn said.
"To meet the expectations
of parents, local school, dis-
tricts that are in compliance
with their class-size reduction
obligation should be given
the option to decide whether
to continue to provide these
services through the newVPK
program."


Sarasota County School
District administrators say
they will offer the prekinder-
garten program during the
summer months beginning
next summer.
But they haven't decided
on whether to offer the year-
long prekindergarten educa-
tion program. School officials
are currently in the process of
considering the year-long
option, said LoriWhite, asso-


ciate superintendent.
"Do we have the capacity
to offer such a program?
Those discussions are taking
place. By meeting the class
size reduction amendment,
our facilities are becoming
even more stressed in terms
of having sufficient space."
White said.
Wings Academy to close
At its regular meeting on


April 5, the Sarasota County
School Board approved an
agreement with the govern-
ing board of the. Sarasota
County Educational Assis-
tance Program. In that docu-
ment both parties agreed to
the closure of the Wings
Academy Charter School at
the end of the 2004-05 school
year. High rent and low
enrollment are the main rea-
sons for the closing.

SAFETY from page 1 A
Don't know
As the population of Flor-
ida grows, competition for
right of way between bikes,
pedestrians and automobiles
has become more intense.
According to the Florida
Department of Transpor-
tation, one in eight bicycle
fatalities occurs in Florida.
About 40 percent of the
nation's bike fatalities happen
in Florida, California, New
York and Texas, according to


for the local Habitat group.
Each of the other 29 homes
it's built was a single-family
structure.
That's the nature of Flor-
ida's land market. Average
people are being priced out,
and Habitat has everything it
needs except for the land to
build on. About 90 percent of
all labor and building sup-
plies are donated, Wilcox said.
"The real challenge to
Habitat is possibly doing
townhouses, which is some-
thing they have never done,"
Tady said.

In Florida, a bicycle is le-

Wilcox hopes to change
that mentality as she plays
the waiting game for North

"It would be avery credible
thing for North Port to take a
leadership position in this,"
Wilcox said. "It would set the
tone.
"It's an active waiting
game. We're not going to just
sit back and watch it happen.
We're going to be active, and
try to let people know what
the need is and how we can
help. We just need the land."

"That's the real value of this

set the direction, and staff
brings it back to us."
Council's priorities
In addition to new height
overlay districts, council
members had to chose their
top and secondary priorities
for 2005 at the end of the
workshop. The moderator
created the options based on
his review of their comments.
Here is the list of top prior-
ities after blind votes from
council:
Change land develop-
ment code on special excep-
tions for height. This action
already is pending, with the
"conditional use" ordinance
coming up for a vote.
Complete comprehen-
sive plan.
Airport marina direction
and development. If council
elects to create a marina on a
portion of vacant airport
property, it's speculated it
would take five years before
all environmental and water-
way permits are granted.
Complete demolition of
the decommissioned beach
sewage plant and convert it
into a park, tentatively named


Tramonto Vista Park by City
Manager Marty Black.
Create a policy that all
future union contracts are at
least three-year agreements.
Complete audit of Venice
Police Department to review
its staffing levels, duties and
structure.
Meet all environmental
compliance mandates as a
result of wastewater plant
violations.
Finalize strategy and di-
rection for the proposed air-
port business park on 125
acres of vacant land at Venice
Municipal Airport.
A complete report of coun-
cil's strategic plan for 2005
through 2020 will be open for
public review when it's pre-
sented to members during a
regular meeting for approval.

SAFETY from page 6A


coming traffic is a contribut-
ing factor to many crashes.
"We still hear from retirees
who think riding against traf-
fic is the right thing to do,"
Harrell said.
Cyclists under age 16 must
also wear a helmet that has
met Consumer Product Safe-
ty Commission Standards.
At least one hand must be
kept on the handlebars while
riding.
When it comes to side-
walks, the rules change. While
bicycles may be ridden on a
sidewalk, cyclists must yield
the right of way to pedestri-
ans and give an audible signal
before passing. They also are
supposed to obey crosswalk
directions, not traffic lights,
when riding on the sidewalk.
A bicycle operated be-
tween sunset and sunrise
must be equipped with a
white light on the front visible
for 500 feet, as well as a red
reflector and red lamp visible
up to 600 feet to the rear.
Though that is the minimum
the law requires, the state rec-
ommends additional lighting.
Riding in single file is also
required, except on bike
paths or parts of the road set
aside exclusively for bicycles.
It is illegal for a cyclist to
wear a headset or head-
phones because it greatly im-
pedes, the sound of traffic.
While cyclists are to carry a
cellular phone in case of
emergencies, they should not
talk on them while riding.
For more laws regarding
bicycles and cars, visit FDOT's
Web site, dot.state.fl.us.
Education
Both Sarasota and Char-
lotte County teach elemen-
tary school children about
using helmets and safety
through talks and video pro-
grams.
Using a video with Bill Nye,
"The Science Guy," schools
stress helmet use.
"Vehicles have seat belts
and bumpers to help keep
drivers safe," Nye warns in the
video. "Bicycles don't have


any of that."
'"A car has a weight about
100 times more than a bicy-
cle," he also says. '"A truck has
about 4,000 times the weight.
A bike is not going to win."
The video promotes light-
colored clothing especially
at night using a helmet, the
rules of the road, lights, reflec-
tors and above all, paying
attention.
'"About 70 percent of bike
crashes happen at driveways
or intersections," he said.
"Sometimes a cyclist is in
their blind spot. But, a lot of
times, drivers just aren't look-
ing for bikes."
'Helped save me'
The lessons about wearing
a helmet were. not lost on
Brandon Benjamin, a 12-
year-old middle school stu-
dent.
While crossing the street
after school, Benjamin was
struck by a car.
He was wearing his helmet
when he was tossed off his
bicycle.
"I was pretty shook up," he
said. "I have some road rash,
but my helmet definitely
helped save me from real
injuries. Without it I really
would not be in good shape."
Benjamin said many fellow
students don't wear their hel-
mets because they look
"uncool" and many of them
don't get caught. However, it
only took once for Benjamin
not wearing his headgear
before he was spotted.
One day he tried riding his
bike to school without his hel-
met; a crossing guard asked
why he wasn't wearing it.
"My dog ate it," he told the
guard, who gave him a new
one. "That's what saved me.
Only a few pieces of the hel-
met broke off in my acci-
dent."
The numbers
According to the Snell
Safety Education Center,
head injuries in bicyclists are,
noted in:
65,000' emergency room
cases
7,700 hospital admis-


sions
40 percent of bicyclists
admitted to the hospital
70 to 80 percent of fatally
injured bicyclists
A bicyclist hospitalized
with head injuries is 20 per-
cent more likely to die than
one without.
While bicycle injuries are
more prevalent among chil-
dren between ages 5 and 15,
56 percent of fatally injured
bicyclists are age 20 or older.
Helmets should be re-
placed after every accident to
guarantee they will do a prop-
er job the next time. Ensuring
the helmet will do its job also
requires wearing it properly.
I Many kids will either push
the helmets back or not clip
the straps. The helmet should
be worn horizontal on the
head so it can protect the
frontal lobe of the brain. If
straps are not clipped, a hel-
met will fly off on impact,
allowing the head to be
injured.
Proper fit allows a rider to
place one finger between the
forehead and helmet and two
between the chin strap and
chin.
Getting involved
While schools, civic groups
and police are reaching stu-
dents through educational
programs such as ."bike
rodeos," little is being done to
educate adults.
Even less is being done to

educate drivers about sharing
the road with cyclists.
Rose Gatto, a member of
the Sarasota/Manatee Bicycle
Club is trying to change that.
A fellow club member,
Ernie de Vos, 63, was killed
last month in Venice when he
.was biking on the shoulder of


U.S. 41 and was hit by a truck.
Another member, Virginia
Poyner, suffered injuries in a
separate accident on Long-
boat Key when she was hit
from behind by a driver who
decided to use the bike lane
to pass a traffic jam.
Distraught, Gatto jumped


on the Internet to see what
other areas of the country
were doing to try to promote
safer roads for cyclists and
motorists.
Gatto said she will ap-
proach the Sarasota County
Pedestrian/Bicycle/Trails Ad-
visory Committee to try to
erect yellow signs to make
drivers more aware of cyclists
using the road. She got the
idea from Los Angeles.
"There are a lot of people
from out-of-state who are
looking around and they are
not watching the road," she
said. "I'm working on trying to
make drivers more aware."
However, Gatto said, there
are plenty of cyclists who
need to be educated as well.
"When I was a kid, your
mom put you on your bike
and that was it," the 58-year-
old said. "Ask anyone my age,
and nine out of 10 will think it
is safer to ride against traffic."
Gatto said she would like
to see more law enforcement
for both cyclists and drivers
who break the law.
"There are people who are
on bikes that are doing things
wrong and there are people
behind the wheel of the car
that are doing things wrong,"
she said. "They need to be
told because there are .serious
consequences."

Naples steals one


from Lady Indians


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

One little call opened up
the floodgates.
In the end, a fine perfor-
mance by Venice Highs varsi-
ty softball was washed away
ina 4-1 loss to visiting Naples
Friday night.
As if Naples, back-to-back
Class 5A runnerup, needed
any help.
Golden
Eagles, 14-5
and ranked
scored'oftheir :
runs in the ''
top of the sev-
enth inning.A -
call in Naples Simon
favor loomed
large in the outcome.
Here was the scenario.
Sophomore pitcher Heath-
er Boyts took a three-hitter
and 1-0 lead into the seventh.
Three out, and Venice would
have a rare sweep of Naples
this season.
Lauren Jones led off with
a single. Then came the play,
that turned the game upside
down. Brittany Bolts bunted
the ball back to Boyts, who
threw to shortstop Brittany
Hipple for an apparent force
out.
However, the umpire
somehow saw Hipple being
drawn off the bag by the
throw.
In plain sight of most,,
Hipple landed squarely on
the bag.,
Now with runners of first
and second, Ashley Pinkerton
had a bunt single to load the
sacks.
Jessica Gary sent a fly in
back of third base. Left field-
er Courtney Bennett made a
great catch, but Jones was
able to tag and race home


with the tying run.
The next batter -
Meredith Morris grounded
to second baseman Kristen
Bailey, who tagged out
Pinkerton. On the play, Boltz
scored the go-ahead run for
Naples.
Cheyenne Jenks then belt-
ed a two-run double for
insurance.
And Naples had pulled the
game out of the fire.
Do the math. If the Lady
Indians get the right call at
second, they win 1-0.
"It was a tough game, but
even after that inning, we
didn't quit," Venice coach
Amy. Kanter said. "We put
two kids on base in the bot-
tom of the seventh against
their ace (Heidi Schu-
macher)."
Schumacher threw the
first and seventh frames for
Naples. In between, Naples
coach Robert lamurri went
with sophomore Claire Ken-
nedy.
Venice got its, run off
Kennedy in the bottom of
the second inning. Amber
Davidson got on after getting
hit by a pitch. She went to
second on a wild pitch and
came around on a single by
Mandy Simon. Davidson
showed her baserunner
savvy with a picturesque
head-first slide home, just
beating the tag.
Simon had a hot bat for
Venice, finishing 3-for-3.
Boyts had the other two hits
forVenice.
Venice (18-4), which
defeated Naples. early in the
season 3-0, has two home
non-district games to tune
up for the district tourna-
ment.
Riverview comes to town
Tuesday night and Cardinal
Mooney will be the opponent
Thursday night.

Indians snap losing streak



with victory over Carroll


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High baseball
team picked up a much-
needed victory Friday night,
squeaking out a 5-4 victory
over visiting Archbishop
Carroll of Miami.
The win stops the bleed-
ing, as the Indians had lost
five straight coming into
Friday's contest.
Venice is 9-11 overall and
4-3 in Class 5A District 11.
"We still can have a win-
ning record," said Craig
Faulkner, who has posted at
least 20 wins in all six of his
seasons as head coach at
VHS. "Hopefully this will get
us heading in the right direc-
tion. We can still finish as high
as second in the district.
That's our goal."

Venice will host the Class

The Venice junior varsity

Ellingsen was the winning
pitcher. Megan Watson was

Venice has lost its share of
tough games this' year, but
Friday night, the Indians
found a way to win a close
one.
With the score tied at 4-4,
Venice scored the winning
run in the bottom of the fifth
inning on doubles by Joe
Salomone and Matt Kindell.
Salomone led off the frame
with an opposite-field two-
bagger down the left field line.
Kindell pulled a line drive

the winning RBI.

RealPro Wrestling a gas


Tiger enters Masters lore at 16


Rock on Rulon! Thanks to
Mr. Gardner, former Olympic
wrestling champion of .the
world, for helping bring real
professional wrestling to the
masses.
Its debut on March 26
marked a new era in wrest-
ling. Something we're not.
used to. That is to say, some-
thing we can be proud of.
Now don't get me wrong. I
suppose it's entertaining to
see big guys on steroids jump
into the air and land on their
bellies or their backs, or feign
injury when they obviously
aren't hurt, or act like beat-
up zombies unable to move
for that long, drawn 'out
moment after which they are
bonked by a chair or a flying
armpit, only to come back
like Stupermai and win the
day with a whack to both
ears, a slap in the face, and a
stomp on the foot.
Call me a purist, but I think
it's far greater entertainment
to watch true competition,
not staged antics. But then
again, I watch PBS.
Luckily for pro wrestling
fanatics, RealPrp Wrestling
will not replace the spectacle
that we call Pro Wrestling.
RealPro Wrestling was de-
signed to.,-be clean. No foul
language or nastiness.
"Perhaps most important
is this new league's position
on bad behavior zero toler-
ance," wrote Gardner and
Dan Gable in a full page ad
placed in USA Today before
its debut.,
"That goes for perfor-
mance-enhancing or illegal
drugs, fighting, foul language,
all the disturbing stuff we've
seen too much of lately."

letes, including Olympians

and world-class wrestlers.
For us die-hard real wrest-
ling fans, it's great fun. It fills
a void that's been out there
for decades.
The trappings need a little
work, however. Like the long
spandex shorts instead of
singlets. Frankly, without the
steroids, some of these guys
- great wrestlers that they
are just, don't look all that.
What's a pair of shorts with-
out the bulging pecks to go
with it!
Of course, real wrestlers
learn early that those who
look tough, act tough, and'
talk tough are mere thespians,
until proven otherwise. Real
tough wrestlers can be the
goofiest looking nerds to
walk the planet.
I'd go back to the short
singlet. (Somebody put a
professional designer on
that.) It adds an'air of, well,-
the Olympian in his purest
form. I like that idea.
If you need to add more
spice, then I'd suggest henna
tattoos.
I like some of the rule
changes designed to keep
things exciting, like the mega-
points for throws and high
throws (that's why we are
tuning in to RealPro Wrest-
ling!), and the "Sumo" point
for a pushout. I even like the
idea of a TV challenge (instant
replay).
A crucial change I'd make
is to shorten the length of the
periods. Currently there are
two three-minute periods. I'd
change' that to three one-
minute periods.
And I'd shorten the point
spread it takes to claim a tech-
nical fall and end the match
to eight points. No one wants
to see a complete thrashing


(eg. 14-2 score) because, in
real wrestling, it's just not that
exciting to watch.
And beef up the camera
action. Add some roving
cameras and use quick cuts
that help us leap into the
fray.
And to prove I'm not a
complete purist dour, I also
support ring girls between
periods.
Either that or move to-

Well, another golf year is
officially under way as Tiger
Woods wins another green
jacket, his fourth.
I know that the golf season
started months ago, but it's
the majors that really count.
While understanding that
all victories on tour are spe-
cial, the allure of the green
jacket, the claret jug or the
Wanamaker trophy is really
what makes golf special.
This is where the men are
separated from the boys on
tour. When Tiger hit it long
and left on the sixteenth hole,
it appeared as though Chris
DiMarco might actually have
a shot to win. True Masters
fans recalled immediately the
shot Davis Love III hit several-
years ago, which turned out
to be prophetic. Even Tiger
said he thought about it. But
to pull that shot off under that
kind of pressure was just phe-
nomenal. That is the stuff leg-
ends are made of. And leg-
ends, they say, make their
own luck.
Tiger's shot will live in the
lore of Jack's putt on 17 in
1986, Larry Mize's chip in to

In fact in the age of ESPN,
that shot will probably eclipse

shot unfold, I couldn't believe
how perfectly it turned out. In
fact my wife, a marketing
professional who religiously
watches the Majors because I
have her taped to a chair with
a gag in her mouth, said that
looked more like a commer-

With the age of computer-
generated graphics and com-
mercials that are rarely for
real, this shot stands out.
How many times have you
seen something so remark-
able? While DiMarco stood in
total disbelief, Tiger stood
alone. And if you think that
shot didn't move Woods, how
else do you explain two inex-
plicable bogeys to end .the
tournament and allow Di-
Marco to get into the playoff
at all? I believe that Tiger
knew the historic moment
that had just occurred would
secure his place in the history
of the Masters.
Adrenaline is the bane of
the professional golfer. When
an amateur makes an im-
probable shot such as Tiger's,
they usually get a rush of
adrenaline which inevitably
leads to the dreaded post
birdie screw up. It's good to
knowthat there's a little Tiger
in all of us.

Nobbe legacy aids teachers by giving back


Paybacks are, well, not all that bad for locals who
teach. A new loan payback program makes its first
awards to 37 teachers in Sarasota County.


BY GREGGILES
STAFF WRITER

The first group of teachers
to receive teacher loan pay-
back grants from a new pro-
gram were honored on April
12.
A reception for Nobbe
Teacher Award recipients was
held at the Leila & Michael
Gompertz Center in Sarasota.
The awards are part of an
innovative grant program cre-
ated by the Allen Wirtz Nobbe
and Jo Bowen Nobbe Fund of
the Community Foundation
of Sarasota County.
Recipients of the awards
are teachers who graduated,
from Sarasota: County high
schools and are currently
teaching in a Sarasota County
public school.

Homegrown
Thirty-seven applicants
were selected for grants of up
to $3,000 per year, renewable
for a maximum of four years.
In all, $113,000 was awarded.
"They're homegrown tal-
ent," said- Wendy Hopkins,
vice president of grants and
program services with Com-
munity Foundation. "They're
graduates of our schools
currently teaching in our
schools."
"Many are teaching in areas
of critical need for the school
district, like ESOL (English as a
second language), special
education, minority faculty,
foreign language, reading,
math and science."
"The award winners are in
the early years of heir career,
and are active in volunteer
activities at their schools or in
the community. They come
with a strong reconnmenda-
I tionwurom their principal,"
Hopkins said.
The following South Coun-
ty educators received the
Nobbe scholarships: Maureen
Bassett (Laurel Nokomis
Middle); Jewell Demarco
(Laurel Nokomis Elementary);
Erin Brosious, Dirnitri Jansen


and Elisha; Snyder (Venice
High); Juan Esparra and
Heather Monks (North. Port,
High); Sandrine Goffard,
Jenna Molinaro and Staci
Noonan (Pine View); Rebecca
Page, Jacqueline Pollard and
Carlos Santa Maria (Heron
Creek Middle).

Acknowledged
The scholarship program is
designed to help ease the dis-
trict teacher shortage by help-
ing hire and retain educators.
Erin Brosious, an English
teacher of 10th- and llth-
graders at Venice High and an
award recipient, was grateful
for the financial assistance.
"I think it's excellent that
the foundation acknowledges
new teachers. Being treated
as a professional feels great.
It's not something that hap-
pens very often to a new
teacher," Brosious said.
"We don't get paid a lot.
That scholarship is a lot of
help financially. Without it I
would have to pay back
$30,000 in loans. This just
about cuts that in half."
The 26-year-old taught in a
nearby county last year, but
it wasn't anything like her
teaching experience in Sara-
sota Counry.
"In my last job I didn't feel
. the same sort of appreciation.
The faculty here at Venice
High are really great. They are
ready to help at any time. The
principal dropped by today
to congratulate me. Even the
parents are very supportive,
which is really cool because at
the last school I taught that
wasn't the case. There's a high
percentage ,of new educators
who stop teaching within
their first few years. Being
acknowledged like this means
a lot." Brosious said.

Bequest
The program is a legacy
from Jo Bowen Nobbe. who
died in 2004 at the age of 92. In
1998, she gave the Commun-
ity Foundation of Sarasota


County her home, which was
sold for $1 million. In 2004,
her bequest to the foundation
was $16.2 million. ,
Using that as seed money,
the foundation created the
Allen Wirtz and Jo Bowen
Nobbe Memorial Fund. Yearly
income from the fund gener-
ates about $820,000.
The foundation used the
income generated from the
fund to establish twvo scholar-
ship programs: one for the
teacher loan payback award
program, and another for
college scholarships for finan-
cially needy students.
It also created educational
enrichment programs for
children. This year the fund
spent $100,000 supporting
everything from summer art
camp to, homework assis-
tance, theater classes, dances
and youth rowing programs.

Whitaker Bayou still threat to flood neighborhoods


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
Whitaker Bayou has been a
headache for Sarasota County
since it took over city of
Sarasota flood control re-
sponsibilities more than a
decade ago, and some tough
decisions have been made to
downgrade proposed drain-
age improvements for nearby
property owners.


PHOTO COURTESY OF PELICAN PRESS
The county commission
recently agreed to pay off a
$410,000 bank loan for two
flood relief projects that didn't
live up to expectations when
,they were completed in 1995
and '98, not long after the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
scrapped an extensive dredg-
ing plan.
"The Army Corps pro-
posed to straighten and wid-
en the creek," explained Ther-
esa Connor, the county's wat-
er resources general manager.
"It considered an $8 million
project, with the community
expected to pay half the bill.
There was no way it could
environmentally fly"
When county stormwater
officials sat doWn with Army
Corps project engineers to
reconsider what could be
done, none of the options
proved to be cost-effective.
"It was during this period
that the Army Corps began to
back away from some flood
work," she said.
Towel thrown in
Last fall county commis-
sioners listened to a report
that described the long histo-
ry of efforts to decrease the
threat of flooding in the area
including a 1991 Army
Corps study that was scrap-
ped and finally threw in the
towel on dredging as a solu-
tion.
"From now on, we will do
maintenance projects in the
creek to keep it clear of debris,
and require that new develop-
ment hold back stormwater
so that it does not exacerbate
downstream flooding," Con-
nor said. "This includes rais-
ing finished floors above flood
stage."
The Whitaker Bayou drain-
age basin is bounded on the
north by DeSoto Road, east by
Lockwood Ridge Road, south
by 10th Street, and west by
U.S. 41. There are 154 flood-
prone structures located in
Tri-Par Estates, the 17th Street
area, and east of North Tuttle
Avenue.
"We will work with the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) to ad-
dress these homes and busi-
nesses," Connor said. "The
trick is to keep Whitaker Bay-
ou free of debris. It must be
inspected before each rainy
season so crews can clear it."
Kirk Bagley, the county's
drainage operations manager,
said the main stem of Whit-
aker Bayou is relatively easy to
keep clear, but tributaries
near the Sarasota Kennel Club
and Tri-Par Estates mobile
home park require almost
constant maintenance.
"The water will still come
over the banks in these areas
because the elevation is very
low. It's a matter of topogra-
phy," he explained. "We have
crews that .hand clear, and
sometimes we use inmate
labor. About 90 percent of the
job is a battle with vegeta-
tion."
Talking trash
Another challenge for
county crews is debris dump-
ed into the drainage ditches
by area property owners and
others.


"We clear a channel one
day, and the next day find all
sorts of trash," Bagley said.
"Sometimes I don't know
what people are thinking, or if
they're thinking at all."
When the county employ-
ed Boyle Engineering to
devise remedial plans for


Whitaker Bayou flooding, the
alternatives came back with
price tags that ranged be-
tween $11.6 million and
$110.5 million. None of them
was determined to be cost
effective.
The least expensive op-
tions for some property own-


ers maybe to raise the ground
floors of threatened struc-
tures a foot or two. In some
cases, it may only be neces-
sary to elevate outside air
conditioning and electrical
equipment above the flood
stage.
"There are about 50 homes


in Tri-Par Estates that should
be raised," Bagley said, "but
we've never raised one. Those
units could be easily raised,
but there is no county pro-
gram or money budgeted for
that. We try to help people
qualify for federal assistance."
A suggestion by commis-


sioner David Mills to con-
demn and remove some of
the flood-prone older homes
and mobile homes was
rejected when it was deter-
mined there was no money in
the county's flood manage-
ment budget for such an
undertaking.

Road bill won't make a dent in traffic


en. Mike Bennett, R.-Bradenton, de-
serves an A for effort, but his bill to im-
prove driving conditions on Florida
roads falls short of providing any realistic
relief.
Bennett has been an effective senator, and
perhaps that is why he marshaled a bill
through the Senate requiring drivers on four-
lane roads aimed mostly at our interstates
- to drive in the right-hand land, unless they
are passing another vehicle.
There are a few other exceptions in the bill
that take. into account inclement weather
and, of course, an upcoming exit going off to
the left.
The senator believes the measure will help
avoid road rage that is often caused by drivers
being stuck behind a slower vehicle. That, he


said, can result in accidents when drivers try
to pass on the right.
"Twenty-one other states have seen their
traffic deaths decrease because they have
passed a road-rage act asking people to move
to the right," Bennett said in an Associated
Press story. "There's nothing, that says you
can't drive in the left-hand lane. You can drive
in the left-hand lane from here to Miami as
long as there's nobody behind you."
Bennett means well, and it is difficult to
argue with statistics if indeed this type of leg-
islation has reduced fatalities in other states.
We believe the scenario the bill poses is
unrealistic and, even more problematic is the
outlook for enforcement of the proposed
new law.
First, anyone who drives our interstates


knows the idea that everyone will drive the
speed limit and move to the right lane is
unrealistic. The right lane cannot hold the
volume of traffic traveling the interstate dur-
ing most hours.
Therefore, someone will always be passing
and the traffic flow and pattern will be no dif-
ferent than it is now.
You will always have slower drivers or
those who at least attempt to go the speed
limit, or within 5-10 mph of the limit, and
those who want to get there as quickly as they
can..
And, how do you enforce such a law? Can
Florida Highway Patrol officers judge who is
passing and who is occupying the left lane
because they want to be there?
Speaking of the FHIE how often does the


senator believe officers will actually be on
hand to catch those driving illegally in the left
lane?
The FHP has its hands full trying to catch
speeders. An unwillingness by Bennett's col-
leagues to 'increase pay for highway patrol
officers and the difficulty the FHP has in fill-
ing vacancies is as much to blame for our
road problems as is the burgeoning popula-
tion that has overwhelmed our inadequate
road system.
Give Bennett credit for trying, but we
believe a law requiring drivers to move to the
right, unless passing, is better suited for six-
lane highways and will have little impact on
road safety.
What we need are wider roads and in-
creased patrols.


Let's take a stand


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


At a gathering of business
and education leaders, Sara-
sota County Schools Super-
intendent Dr. Gary Norris
outlined his plan for the
schools' future that he called
Next Generation Learning.
He did a great job of show-
ing the areas we need to work
on, and some of the ways to
get there, including extending
the additional one-mill in'
property tax in 2006.
At the same time he
bragged about how well we
are doing, as he should have.
Sometime soon I want to
share the plan with you, but
today I wanted to.bring up
something he didn't mention
directly that is a serious prob-
lem on our middle and high
school campuses, and for our
children and society in gener-
al: alcohol and drugs.
This is not a new problem
anymore than a high dropout
rate or serious achievement
gap is. Simply stated, the
schools, law enforcement and
the public just aren't address-
ing the problem as strongly as
is necessary.
Many years ago a sub-
stance abuse coalition was
formed, thanks in part to-
work by The Venice Foun-
dation and others. Its mission
is to get passionate about
solving this threat to our soci-
, ety. We all know that it is a root
cause for some of the other
problems law enforcement
and school officials deal with
day in and out.
Last week a member of the
Venice girls softball team was
expelled from school for
drugs. This came after reports
that a popular math teacher
had also been suspended,
with pay, for allegedly enter-
'taining students at his home
with liquor and pot. He had
his own pot farm in his
garage. (Although I am all for
due process, I hate paying
people to go on vacation
when they have done wrong.)
Venice High has had three
to five times more arrests
than any other county high
school for drugs this year. The
question is, does that mean it
does a better job of seeking
out the problem or is there a
bigger problem? I'd guess a
little of both, is closest to the
truth.,
I know both of the school
resource officers who have
worked that slot this year -
both veterans, both very good
policemen. Officer DanWhit-
aker, the current SRO, tells
me that they have a very
tough, no-tolerance policy on
campus and I believe him. I
know Candace Millington,


the principal, is not afraid to
tackle this kind of problem, as
I have seen her strong deci-
sion-making first hand.
Nonetheless, that is a great
deal of arrests. I assume there
is a large number of offenders
and drugs at the school not
caught, and a whole lot more
that are smart enough not to
have the stuff near schools. '
To assist in catching the
offenders, the school calls in
the police dogs to sniff out the
problem. So far this year that
has happened a few times.
Someone who works at North
Port High said North Port also
has a no-tolerance policy but
admits that the dogs are on
campus at most twice a year. I
am shocked at how low the
North Port drug arrest num-
bers are.
It is hard to get your hands
on-rthis-problem when often
the people allowing this arc
the parents themselves, espe-
cially as it relates to drinking.
That may seem fine, until the
day comes as Sue and I
experienced that you have
a son who was thrown
through a windshield in an
alcohol-related accident.
The word at Venice High is
that' when the player was
caught with drugs in her car,
other kids got their cars out of
the non-secure parking area
at the school before they got
caught. That is just rumor, but
I would, not be surprised
either. It shows a security
problem.
There are a few things that
must happen.
Awareness of the problem
must become a priority. As
long as I have been here
school officials have wanted
to make sure that their prob-
lems are their problems
alone, so very little informa-
tion gets out about this kind
of situation.
Do you remember hearing
about any of the 17 drug
arrests on campus? I guess
the thinking is if there were
more publicity, it might re-
flect poorly on the principal,
her boss and the system, and
just. maybe parents would
yank their kids and put them
in private schools at a cost to
the system.
I contend they need to get
very proactive about letting
the community know what is
going on so that maybe the
parents will get upset and join
the coalition or some other
group to get results.
In my opinion it is time to
get the athletes drug-tested -
maybe every child who par-
ticipates in extra-curricular
activities. Other counties,
have done it and we need to
try it, especially now as the
steroid issue has been so
widely exposed. Testing is
within the law and would set
an important example. There
may well be some foundation
money to get, it going. Venice
High could lead the way.
We need more 800-num-
bers for kids to inform au-
thorities about problems. We

Keep an eye on your children


Editor:
With the number of missing children reported ir
few weeks, I felt the need to share the experience I
week in a large discount store in Port Charlotte.
I was strolling through the store, which was qu
heard a small voice (a boy around 6-7 years of age
"Mommy, where are you? Mommy, where are you?" I
for a moment or two as the boy came down the hall,
a ball, still calling for his mother.
People walked by, employees walked by and

from a distance and finally, after walking to the other e
store, he found his mother and what I assume was hi

Some Realtors aren't
helping young clients
Editor:
.I just had to respond to
your article about Venice not
accommodating young peo-
ple. One of the problems
keeping young people away is
the rude treatment of non-
seniors by Florida Realtors.
I encountered two Realtors
last spring who .rudely sent
me packing, one suggesting I
go to Sarasota, which is more
family oriented. The other
said my young children
would not be happy in their
development.
Neither development was
an over-55 only.
Not only was this discrimi-
natory behavior, it is also bad
salesmanship. I subsequently
purchased land in the Venice
area from another Realtor,
who has been more than gra-
cious, but she acknowledges
there are few children in the
development.


I respect the 55-pl
opments. I can see r

tention-getting (via lying) will
eliminate me quickly. Shame
on all of you who let this
headline fly. You are all re-
sponsible for your lie.
I do not know Mr. LevifAe
but I certainly have followed
his activities, and every com-
munity needs a Mr. Levine (as
I guess the Gondolier Sun
does).
. Politics is a very dirty
game. I am a very old person
and have seen enough now to
realize that politicians are not
honorable people and neither
are media people. News-
papers and newspaper peo-
ple have one job only: that is
to print the facts and the
truth. This is not the way of
business today.
To accuse Mr. Levine of
cheating at a meeting makes
me very disgusted with you. I
personally think that you
(Gondolier Sun editor and
Andrews) owe Mr. Levine a
public apology.
'But that would take hon-
esty and integrity and intelli-
gence. What are the chances?


J.G. McEntee
Venice


EDITOR'S NOTE: If the
Gondolier Sun had erroneously
accused Levine of misconduct, you
would have a point. But the head-
line accurately reflects the allega-
tions the city says three Envision
Venice participants made against
Levine, and which he denies.

Free beer? The Longboat Key Police Department, Fraternal

beer? From police? For the benefit of a child? And on Sunday,

Delighted. I'm delighted
that Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital is going to be building an
extension here in Venice. We
need a nonprofit hospital here
in the area, and they'll provide
services that are not provided
by the Venice hospital, such as
psychiatric and obstetrics.
They will help serve the people
in the community that cannot

Looked it up. This is in
response to the call "If the
shoe fits," where they said the
second definition of sodomy
is any form of sexual inter-
course other than to procre-
ate children to pass on the

ary they define sodomy as
unnatural sexual intercourse,
especially one man with an-
other, or a human being with
an animal.

VEDDER from page 13A
need to ask the kids who has
the drugs because it is well
known on campus who does
drugs and where the drinking
parties are.
As long as the kids know
they won't have their name
exposed, they are more likely
to help. I was at Venice Area
Middle years ago and the kids
told me they wouldn't tell the
SRO because he would rat
them out.
We have reported in the
past on the police checking
on liquor establishments sell-
ing to minors. The problem is,
it has to be done more often.
Once a year by the city is not
enough. It is also done about
the same time each year.
We caught many offenders
last year, then failed to follow
up to see if they were still sell-
ing to minors. Much of the
work is done by alcohol and
drug enforcement units, but
our police and school officials
must push for more.
Dr. Norris has done a nice
job of defining the goals, the
problems and the road map
to the future. I'd like him and
the board to get aggressive on
making getting rid of drugs
and alcohol a priority, as it is
one cause of many of the
other problems they are try-
ing to solve.

dreds of awesome teachers this
school system has. Peg Wes-
piser, a longtime Venice Gar-

so good with children. We have
a great class, as I try to teach
resources and how they go into
making a business.
Where I thought class size
"was a joke last year, this year
the classes are definitely
smaller; her class has only 17,
although she started with 20.
The other four fourth grades
have about 20.

I spoke to a group of dedi-

about volunteering, as this is
Volunteer Week. Just think
what would happen if we did
not have volunteers. It would
be a pretty sad situation.

STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County elemen-
tary school students, using the
county's touch screen voting
machines, voted for their fa-
vorite books in the Sunshine
State Young Reader's Award
Program at area elementary
schools this past week. The
top vote getter was "The Ghost
Sitter" by Peni Griffin, with 123
votes out of 858 votes cast.
Other books with more
than 100 votes each were,
"The Elevator Family" by
Douglas Evans, "7x9=Trouble"
by Claudia Mills, and "The
City of Ember" by Jeanne
DuPrau.
Students from Taylor
Ranch, Ashton, Bay Haven
Basics, Fruitville, Garden,
Gocio, Gulf Gate, and South-
side elementary schools par-
ticipated in the election. Each
student was required to read


te DOOKS

three or more books from a
list of 15 to be eligible to vote.
"I think that the number of
students who voted in the
Sunshine State Young Reader's
Program election shows that
even students who are not yet
eligible to vote can be inspired
by the election process," said
.Supervisor of Elections Kathy
Dent. "I am especially grateful
to the school district and the
teachers who supported this
exercise, which engaged stu-
dents through experienced-
based education to make
choices and learn about the
voting process."
The Sunshine State Young
Reader's Award Program is a
statewide reading motivation
program developed to en-
courage students to read in-
dependently. The election
was organized by Dent's office
in cooperation with teachers
of the school district.

CLEANING DEVICES
Many toothbrushes have rubber tips on the end of the handle to
stimulate the gum tissue between the tooth. The pointed tip slips
between the teeth and massages the gum by a rotary or jigging action.
If the gums are puffy or enlarged, the stimulation provided by these
devices can return them to normal once the underlying cause such as
tartar deposits, is removed. Remember that if it hurts stop doing it.
Toothpicks push large food particles from the teeth, but they are
generally not as effective as dental floss. Care must be used to avoid
damage. Toothpicks of soft orangewood are available to massage the
gum as well as to clean the teeth. Chewing on toothpicks can
traumatize and loosen tooth creating gum pockets and problem areas.
Tiny brushes are available that look like little bottle brushes and are
small enough to slip between the teeth. The bristles of these brushes
can clean areas likely to be missed by floss and interdental
stimulators. Remember that clean teeth are healthier teeth.

Pre-trial juvenile policy bitter pill for counties


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
Florida lawmakers have
permanently shifted a $90
million annual pre-trial bill
for juvenile offenders onto
local taxpayers, a decision
that will cost Sarasota County
an additional $1.3 million this
year and neighboring Man-
atee County an estimated
$2.3 million.
Last Monday, State Sen.
Lisa Carlton, R-Osprey, chair-
woman of the Senate Ways
and Means Committee, told
the Pelican Press that the
funding decision initiated last
spring would become perma-
-nent when the state operating
budget is approved at the end

of this legislative session.
"It is a done deal," Carlton
said. "It is our contention that
when the state took over
Article V responsibility for
court costs, the counties sub-
stantially benefited. Recog-
nizing this, the legislature
made a policy and funding
decision last year to shift $90
million in pre-trial costs."
Not a welcome move
In fact, the legislature's first
2004 attempt to shift the $90
million annual bill to counties
was successfully challenged
in court as an "unfunded
mandate" that lacked the
required two-thirds votes. As
a result, it had to be approved
a second time in December

"This year, we decided to
continue the policy," Carlton
said. 'About
10 years ago,
the counties
paid for pre-
trial juvenile
Sexpenspes.
Then the
state took
over those
costs. But
Carlton when Article
Vwas approv-
ed, the pre-trial costs were
shifted back to counties."
Earlier this year, Manatee
County Administrator Ernie


Padgett complained about
the shift.
"The state runs a problem-
plagued juvenile justice pro-
gram," he said, "and counties
have very little to stay about
how it operates. The state
runs it and the counties have
to pay for it."
He predicted that the legis-
lature's decision would force
some counties especially
those with low property tax
bases to either cut existing
services or raise taxes. In a
widely-circulated letter, he
encouraged local govern-
ments to contest the decision.
Because of the 2004 court
challenge, counties didn't get


41' -ia


hit with the $90 million bill
last year. But there will be no
avoiding it this year.
"Its mean spirited and was-
n't necessary," said Bill Brough-
ton, the county's legislative lob-
byist. "The legislature only did
this because it can."
The legislature reportedly
has $4 billion in additional rev-
enue to work with this year and
could have funded pre-trial
juvenile costs. "This requires
the counties to pay," Brough-
ton said. "If they don't pay, the
money will be withheld from
state revenue sharing."
Checkered past
Florida's history of provid-


ing juvenile justice'and de-
tention services is checkered.
The responsibility was entire-
ly delegated to counties until
the mid-1970s, when state
lawmakers decided juvenile
programs were unequally ad-
ministered and assumed con-
trol.
What prompted the legis-
lature's cost-shifting decision
back to counties was a 1998
constitutional revision that
forced lawmakers to annually
fund the trial court system by
July 1, 2004.
The measure known as
Revision 7 of Article V was ap-
proved in a statewide referen-
dum.

Lawmakers wor


on new child safety bill


Stiffer penalties are being proposed for sex
offenders, and they might be required to wear
monitors after being released from prison.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

When 11-year-old Carlie
Brucia was abducted and
killed in Sarasota last year,
lawmakers said something
had to change to protect
innocent children from crim-
inals while walking home
from school.
Now that children sleeping
in their own beds aren't safe
from sexual predators, law-
makers are taking another


look at what can be done to
fight those who prey on kids.
Members of the Criminal
Justice Committee have met
in Tallahassee to discuss
stiffer penalties for sexual
offenders and predators. A
predator is a repeat offender
who has had sexual relations
with a child under 16.
At that meeting, the Jessica
Lunsford Bill was introduced.
This followed the abduction
of the 9-year-old Homosassa,
Fla., girl from her bedroom


two months ago.
The proposed language
requires electronic monitor-
ing of offenders those who
committed specific sexual
offenses or have been desig-
nated as a sexual offender -
on probation, community
control (house arrest) or con-
ditional release.
The bill also creates a new
aggravating circumstance to
be considered by the sentenc-
ing jury and judge in a capital
case. The bill adds to the list
that the offense was commit-
ted by a designated sexual
predator or a person.who pre-
viously had a sexual predator
designation.


Tougher
With certain exemptions, a
sexual predator is currently
required to maintain registra-
tion for life. However, a per-
son who was designated as a
sexual predator on or after
Oct. 1, 1998, has been
released from confinement or
supervision for at least 20
years and has not been arrest-
ed since, may petition the
court for removal of the sexu-
al predator designation. The
new bill extends the length of
time before a predator can
apply for the designation's
removal from 20 years to 30
years.
The bill also removes the


current requirement that in
order to qualify for sexual
predator designation, a prior
sexual offense must have
been sentenced separately
from the most recent offense.
Further,. the bill removes lan-
guage disqualifying a prior
felony if it was committed
more than 10 years before the
primary offense.
Not impressed
The bill still has to work its
way through the Legislature.
However, some local child
advocates hope lawmakers
are more serious now than
they were last year.
"When Carlie Brucia was


killed, lawmakers said they
were going to make changes
to help better protect chil-
dren," said Hal Hedley, execu-
tive director of the Child
Protection Center.
"They didn't do anything
impressive because it would
have meant the state had to
hire more probation offi-
cers."
Hedley said law enforce-
ment officials are likely frus-
trated by making good arrests
only to see sexual offenders in
neighborhoods with children
months later.

the Child Protection Center,

Breathalyzers under court scrutiny


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


A three-judge panel will
convene April 22 to decide
whether breathalyzer tests as
they are presently adminis-
tered in Sarasota County can
continue.
"What this is all about,"
Venice attorney Robert Har-
rison said, "is it (the breatha-
lyzer) may say Intoxilyzer
5000 on the outside but we
don't know what version is on
the inside."
Intoxilyzer 5000 is the
manufacturer's brand name
of the breathlyzer used in
Sarasota County. The county
has three of them. One is
located at the North County
Jail, one is at the South
County Jail (Venice), and one
is mobile, Harrison said. He
also said the county has at
least two back-up machines.
At issue is whether the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, the certifying
agency, and the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office can
produce records showing to
what extent, if any., the ma-
chines may have been modi-
fied during routine repairs.
"We know that, for instance
in Charlotte and Orange coun-
ties, when repaired, other
Intoxilyzers have been im-
properly modified with unap-
proved parts," Harrison said.
"What I want to know is, has
the same thing happened in
Sarasota County."
While it would be easy
enough to take the top off the
machine and check the mod-
ifications against the original
parts manual, that also is the
rub.
"Every criminal county-

court judge there are three
of them has ordered the
state to produce a specific
manual for the specific in-
strument," Harrison said,
"but here, in Sarasota County,
they can't even give you the
manual because they don't
have it."
Harrison said Sarasota
County does not maintain
Intoxilyzer maintenance rec-
ords for more than three
years.
Intoxilyzers must be in-
spected once a month by the
sheriff's office and once a year
by FDLE, Harrison said.

STAFF REPORT


A Punta Gorda teen plead-
ed guilty Wednesday to a
charge of vehicular homicide,
stemming from a 2003 car
surfing crash.
Erroll Martin, 18, was
charged in January 2004 by
the state attorney's office,
after a 2003 Halloween night
car surfing incident that killed
his friend, Christopher Trow-
bridge, 15.
Martin will be sentenced in
July and faces punishment
ranging from probation to 15
years in prison for the crime.
A police report stated Mar-
tin turned the wheel of an
SUV over to an unlicensed
driver so he and Tr6wbridge,
who was a Charlotte High
School student, could ride on
the roof of the car, commonly
known as "car surfing."
NPPD has said Martin was
the only licensed driver in the
vehicle and that he turned the
wheel over to a then 14-year-
old girl. The girl lost control of
the vehicle, which veered off
the road and then rolled over,
throwing the two boys.
Trowbridge died atAll Chil-
dren's Hospital in November
2003.

Venice man arrested for
alleged molestation
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office deputies arrested a 21-

architectural details.
The third option can
produce startling and exciting
results. But before you buy 10
gallons of bubblegum pink,
it's a good idea to look at what
your neighbors are doing.

Neighborhood Context
A fluorescent colored
Victorian that looks splendid
in San Francisco will seem
wildly out of place in more
conservative neighborhoods.
Even if you are opting for a
more subtle scheme, you'll
want to make sure that your
colors are compatible with the
houses next door.
Existing Colors
Your house is your canvas,
but it is not blank. Some
colors are already established.

their existing colors? Do you
have expensive ceramic
outdoor lighting? Are all
flowering bushes bright red?
New paint does not need to
match existing colors, but it
should harmonize.

Interior Colors
It may seem'comical to
paint an entire house based
on the pattern of a pillow
case, but this approach does

Favorite exterior
color trends
Commenting on the
popular paint colors of
the moment is, at best, a
risky business. They can
change at any time. With
that proviso, it is possible
to say that preferences are
far more predictable
when it comes to exterior
paint colors than interior
colors. For the past 200
years or more, white has
been the top color choice
for home exteriors in the
U.S. And a recent color
study, conducted by the
Rohm and Haas Paint.
Quality Institute indicates
that white or off-white
still ranks at the top of the
list. Earth tone browns,
tans, and beiges have
always been popular, and
they remain so today.

http://www.bbbvila.com


make sense. The color of your
furnishings will guide you in
the selection of your interior
paint colors, and your interior
paint colors will influence the
colors you use outside. Orice
again, your goal is to harmd-
nize.

Accents
Depending on the size and
complexity of your home, you
may be choosing two, three or
as many as six colors. In
addition to the color you
select for siding, you'll want
to select accent colors for trim
and details such as shutters,
moldings and columns. This
can be tricky, because too
many colors will overwhelm
your house and too few will
make it seem two dimension-
al.

Darks and Lights
Light colors will make your
house seem larger. Dark
siding or dark bands of trim'
will make your house seem
smaller, but will draw more
attention to details. Darker
shades are best for accenting
recesses, while lighter tones
will highlight details which,
project from the wall surface.
On traditional Victorian
homes, the darkest paint is
often used for the window
sashes.

Harmony and Contrast'
Contrasting colors will draw
attention to architectural
details. But, extreme contrasts
will clash and actually detract
fr6m details. To be safe,
consider staying within a


single color family. For some
accents, try using a darker or
lighter shade instead of.a
different color.

Balance,
A burst of a single color on
just one part of your home
may give it a lopsided appear-
ance. Strive to balance colors


over the entire building.

Durability
The more intense a color,
the more likely it is to fade.
After a few years, vivid blues
and deep reds will seem more
subdued. Dark colors also

pose more maintenance
problems. Dark colors absorb
heat and suffer more moisture
problems than lighter shades.
And because dark paint fades,
it's difficult to touch up.

Sheen
You thought you only had
to pick colors? Sorry! In
addition, you'll also need to
decide on the sheen of your
paint glossy, semi-gloss 0or
flat. The glossier the surface,
. the more likely it is to show
imperfections, brush strokes
and touch up marks. On the
other hand, glossy surfaces
are easier to clean. Many
homeowners opt to use flat
paint for walls and semi-gloss
or glossy paint for columns,
railings and window sashes.

Color Deceptions
Color swatches look very
different when they are
brought out of the store and
viewed in'natural sunlight.
Also, colors appear lighter on
large surfaces than they. do on
small samples. It's best to test
your selected color in one
area before buying gallons of
paint.

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 alive, 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.

Garbage Can

Band comes

to Venice

Three -cheers to Music Di-
rector Roberta Reale for
bringing the members of her
Venice Elementary School
Garbage Can Band to the
Venice High School baseball
game.
Everyone in the stands was
moved by their spirited drum-
ming.
The evening celebrating
Homework Heroes was orga-
nized by Karen DiPillo. Stu-
dents who completed their
homework assignments for
the third semester received a
coupon for a free drink, sand-
wich and admission to the
game.
First-grader Sienna Viegel
stole the show when she sang
the National Anthem and
principal Theresa Baus threw
out the first pitch.
The stands were filled with
enthusiastic fans.
Food for thought,
Thanks to their leader
Frank Drab, members of the
Senior Friendship Center's
Monday morning writer's
group published their annual
book of life stories, "Pot Pourri
Doorways."
Gloria Scaboria tells me
the stories provide some nice
insights to life.
Financed by the Dan Howe
Estate, each member received
a copy of the publication and
the group donated copies to
the Venice libraries.
When you are at the Third
Thursday Stroll on Venice
Avenue this week, be sure to
stop at The Book Shop and
meet Daniel Hopsicker who
wrote "Welcome to Terror-
land and the 9-11 Coverup."
This : interesting author
provides some thought-pro-
voking perceptions about the
events of that historic day.
Support the senior citizen
One of the oldest senior citi-
zens in town is The Lord House
scheduled to be moved soon
from its present location at 811
Laguna Drive. Janice Fawn is
working with Jeff Boone, Dave
Farley and Jean Trammell to
help raise money to renovate
this kindly reminder of life in
Venice before it became the
busy retirement mecca it is
these days.
If you would like to donate
to help The Lord House, send
your check to Suzanne Tudor
at the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, 601
South Tamiami Trail, Venice,
34285.
Make the check payable to
GCCFV and write Lord House
Historic Preservation Fund in
the memo.
Meeters and greeters
The Venice Train Depot
tours are fun and informative
because of the dedicated
docents.

Hoatson's collection






takes the cake


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


When John Hoatson opens
his eyes each morning, the
first thing he sees is Diana,
the late Princess of Wales, for-
mer wife of Prince Charles.
A life-size cardboard cut-
out of Princess Diana is next
to his bed. Stacks of books
and CDs and DVDs about the
woman British Prime Min-
ister Tony Blair dubbed "The
People's Princess" are piled
neatly on a nearby chest of
drawers. Pictures and posters
cover every vertical and hori-
zontal display space in the
bedroom. There is even a
signed and framed portrait of.
Mohammed Al Fayed, father
of Diana's last love, Dodi Al
Fayad, the man with whom
she spent her last evening
before being killed in a car
crash in Paris on Aug. 31,
1997.

"She is a true inspiration to
me," Hoatson said. "The com-
mon people could relate to
her. She changed the monar-
chy for the better. She
brought it to the people."
Containing everything
from doorknobs from her
family home at Althorp to an
actual piece of her wedding
cake, Hoatson's collection
spills out of his room, filling
the walls, ceilings and several
cabinets of at least half of the
South Venice home that
Hoatson shares with college
friend Jeff Roche. ,
The cake, neatly sliced and
fit within a lacy-doily lined
3.5-inch by 4.5-inch engraved
box, was purchased for $500


from a dealer in London. It
belonged to one of the butlers
at Kensington Palace before
becoming lot number 870 in
the auction catalog. Hoatson
also owns apiece of cake from
the wedding of Sarah Fer-
guson to Prince Andrew. It
was purchased for $350 from
the same dealer. Both cakes
were made by the Royal Navy
Cookery school, he said.
"When I was 8, my mother
sat me down before the televi-
sion set to watch the wed-
-ding," he said. "She said this
was a historic occasion."
Hoatson was fascinated
with the beautiful princess
and the pomp and circum-
stance.
"I had never seen such a
big church and all those car-
riages," he said.
Within days of watching
the televised wedding of Di-
ana Spencer to the heir to the
British throne, the young
Hoatson began his collection.
The first items were the news
clippings about the wedding.
Then he saved his money and
bought a magazine about it.
As he grew older, he would
write to people, requesting
photos and autographs.
Friends gave him presents.
He purchased a few items.
Little by little the collection
grew. Today he has VHS tapes
of the wedding and the funer-
al as well as clips of other
Limes in her life.
Hoatson told me that I was
the first, person outside of his
immediate group of family
and friends to view his collec-
Lion, which nearly spans his
life and contains more than
2,000 items of Diana memo-
rabilia.
"I am trying to encapsulate
her entire life," Hoatson said.
"I am trying to contact people
for autographs."
In order to acquire the
autographed photo of Mo-
hammed Al Fayad, Hoatson
wrote to-the senior Al Fayad
via Harrod's store in London
and asked for a photo. Some
weeks later, an autographed
photo was sent to Hoatson.'
Many of the items in the col-
lection were acquired that
way. He wrote and asked and
eventually received the re-
quested item. Other items,
like the cake, had to be pur-
chased.
There are many cups and
saucers, boxes, two sheep,
cards and letters, linen towels,
T-shirts, countless books,
dolls dressed in some of Di-
ana's more popular outfits
and an ashtray that was made
of a broken cup from Diana's
wedding.

piece of cake from the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.


"Lots of people send me
stuff," he said.
Many people have sent
program books, posters, even
unused tickets 'from the.
Diana Ballet and tickets from
opening day at Althorp, the
Spencer ancesual home.
The doorknobs mentioned
above were purchased from a
former, maid in the home.
When she sent them to
Hoatson, she sent photos of
herself in the dining room
and by the pool. Diana's
father, Earl Spencer, had given
them to the maid, Hoatson
said.
In recent weeks, Hoatson's
collection has been augment-
ed with a new poster of Diana
and' several purchases from
St. Petersburg's Florida Inter-
national Museum. Currently
on display there is Diana, a
Celebration, on loan from
Althorp House, which also is
the site of the Round Ovallake
island where the princess was
buried. During the summer
months, from Jltdy 1. Diana's
birth date, to Aug. 31, the date
of her death, the exhibition is
on display at the family estate,
where it has generated some
$2 million for charities sup-
ported by the Diana Princess
of Wales Memorial Fund. In
St., Petersburg, 10 percent of
the retail price of products
sold in conjunction with the
exhibition will go to such pro-
jects.
Although Hoatson has not
been to Althorp, he has done


A cutout of Princess Diana surrounded by memorabilia in
Hoatson's bedroom.


Please see DIANA, 13B The maid at Althorp who sold the doorknobs to Hoatson.

untreated STDs can cause
irreversible neurological da-

can result in infertility.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. How long is one hearing
aid battery supposed to last?
A. Generally,, the smaller the
battery size, the shorter the
battery life. Typically, they last
7-14 days based on a 16 hours
a day use cycle. Today's
batteries are "zinc-air" and
remain inactive until the sticker
on the back is removed. Once
the sticker is removed, oxygen
in the air contracts the zinc
within the battery and the
battery is "activated." Zinc-air
batteries have a shelf life of up
to three years when stored in a
cool, dry environment. Storing
zinc-air batteries in the
refrigerator has no beneficial
effect, in fact, quite the
opposite! If water vapor from
the refrigerator creeps under
the sticker on the battery, the
batter will activate and could
be totally discharged by the
time you peel off the sticker.
Therefore, the best place to
store batteries is in a cool, dry
place, not the refrigerator! Call
us at Woodmere Hearing and
Balance Centers, Inc. 492-
4327.

Bound
Dear Bound,
The rising cost of prescrip-
tion drugs in the United
States has already prompted
nearly 2 million Americans to
buy their drugs from Canada
- and who can blame them?
The drugs are safe and the
savings can be huge. Here's
what you should know.
The reason prescription
drugs cost less in Canada
than in the U.S. is because
Canada, like most developed
countries, has price controls
to keep the drug prices

not. Savings will vary
depending on the drug.
However, you can expect to
save between 30 and 80 per-
cent, even after shipping

Is it legal?
According to federal law,
it's illegal to import prescrip-
tion drugs from any foreign
country, but the law is not
enforced. The FDA and U.S.
Customs Department have
made it clear they will not
take action against individu-
als who import small quanti-
ties (no more than a 90-day
supply) of prescription drugs
for their own use. This
applies to drugs sent through
the mail or driven across the

If this ancient journalist

this digital age when every-

My granddaughter says
that when she went to Paris,-
she took a thousand pho-

camera. I have never owned
one of those, but it seems like
a lot of snapshots to me. Who

1,000 pictures? Back in the old
days, Dad and I took a lot of
slides of our travels and fami-
ly. We had 25 carousels of
slides from Japan, Guam,
New Zealand and Europe, but
after a while, nobody would
get out the screen and projec-
tor to look at them. When the
children came to visit, I
begged them to go through
those wonderful archives to
rescue good family pictures.
All the rest went to the dump-
ster.
Lately, one of the sons
brought a grand album of his
trip to China. Very few of us
took time to enjoy the pic-

I recently asked a friend
why she took so many pic-

they are here in the U.S. In
fact, there has never been a
documented death or illness
caused by an unsafe drug
sent to an American from a
Canadian pharmacy. And,
there are at least nine U.S.
states that have recently
launched Web sites to help
their residents buy affordable
drugs from Canada.
Pharmacy shopping
With so many Canadian
pharmacy Web sites and
mail-order companies online
today, the choices can be
overwhelming. To help you
find a licensed, reputable
Canadian pharmacy and
avoid those risky Web sites,
here are two excellent
resources to visit:
Canadian International
Pharmacy Association
(CIPA). A professional organi-
.zation that ensures ethical
standards of practice with its
members. Visit ciparx.ca.
PharmacyChecker.com:
Helps consumers find the
lowest drug prices from
licensed, qualified and rep-
utable Canadian, U.S. and
International online and
mail-order pharmacies. Visit
pharmacychecker.com.
How to buy
Buying prescription drugs
from Canada either by phone
or online is very easy. Once
you select a pharmacy, they
will take you through their
ordering process that will
require you to fax or mail in a
copy of your original pre-
scription that must be writ-
Sten by a licensed U.S. physi-
cian. Once the prescription is
received, it is reviewed and
approved by a Canadian doc-
tor. Some doctors may even
call you directly if they have


questions about your med-
ical condition or other drugs
you're taking. Payment is typ-
ically done with a credit card
and you should receive your
order within a week or two.
Note that Canadian pharma-
cies will not mail controlled,
substances or medications
that require refrigeration.

Volunteerism
Dear Savvy Senior,
I'm worried about my 58-
year-old husband who will be
retiring in two years. He doesn't
have any hobbies outside of his
job other than working in the
yard or watching TV. Personally,
I would like both of us to, get
involved in some type of volun-
teer work after we retire but he
doesn't seem interested. Do you
know of some good resources
on volunteerism for people our
age? I think if I can find the right
opportunity he might get inter-
ested. Looking Ahead
Dear Looking,
Volunteering is a great activi-
ty for social involvement as
well as making a positive and
satisfying contribution to
your community. Ask your
husband if he has any inter-
est in improving his commu-


nity, meeting new people,
learning some new skills or
helping change someone's
life for the better? If he say's
yes to any of these, he should
try volunteering. Here are
some things you should
know.
Healthy choice
There's no doubt that vol-
unteering is a good thing.
Through volunteer service,
you not only strengthen and
improve the quality of life
within your community; you
can also help yourself and
others to live happier, health-
ier and more productive lives.
In fact, several studies sug-
gest that seniors who volun-
teer regularly actually live
longer and have fewer med-
ical problems.
Savvy fact
Americans volunteer,
more in their mid-life years
than in retirement.
Boom or bust
The baby boom genera-
tion, 77 million people born
between 1946 and 1964, rep-
resents the largest pool of
potential volunteers in our
American history. But will
they participate? Studies
show that compared to their
parents' generation, the so

have time to enjoy them. Well,
maybe ... but I never did.
The thing is, after many
years we aren't interested in
scenery anymore. We want to
look at the faces of people we
loved or enjoy the stylish out-
fits of olden days.
We need to see who the
new baby resembles or what
the ol' man looked like with
hair. We're seeking our roots,
our family memories and
those images give a lot of
information.
I worked as a columnist for
our hometown paper for 17
years. I recall a piece about
an old black-and-white I
found: "The four of us taken
last Sunday." No names. No


dates. I was too busy to write
on the backs of my pictures.
I once reported with a pro-
fessional photographer who
admitted that he had to take a
lot of shots before he got a
good one.
We certainly did that
when our first baby arrived,
but alas, when the others
came along, we simply never
did it.
How I should have loved to
play with the Tools of Tech-
nology.
Nowadays anybody can
make lovely story-books
about anything, all bound
neatly with plastic combs. We
can pick and choose and edit
the best. We can scan family


albums and reproduce whole
histories of look-a-likes to
pull from convenient book
shelves any time.
No more carousels or
screens; we can use our TVs
and computers anywhere.
I am a gal who would have
adored screen-savers -and
word processors, but the cell-
phone with digital camera
takes the cake. I wonder what
will be next?

Carnival Cruise Lines ship, the 855-foot long, 2,052-passenger Inspiration, sails out of Tampa on Thursdays for four-day Western

BY JAY CLARKE
GUEST WRITER


Friday. TGIF Time to un-
wind. Time to get away, Really
get away.
For a growing number of
us, that means getting aboard
a cruise ship and sailing away
for the weekend.
Many work-week-bound
folks are finding a weekend
cruise the perfect way to get
away. No telephone to inter-
rupt your dedication to fun.


No home repairs to nibble at
your relaxation. No traffic tie-
ups, no problems to solve.
A weekend cruise is just
about the right length. Not so
long that you have to take
.time off fromwork (you leave
late Friday afternoon, return
early Monday morning). But
long enough to get comfort-
, able with your ship and your
destination.
Those with more time can
choose four-night cruises
that leave on Mondays, or opt


-for the new four-night, five-
night sequence Carnival will
begin next month.
From South Florida, both
the three-day weekend cruis-
es and four-night weekday
sailings have time to make
one or two stops. Most call at
a Bahamian port usually
Nassau and sometimes also
Freeport. Many also stop at a
private Bahamian island
where passengers can spend
the day at their own beach.
But the ship itself is a destina-


tion as well, and that's where
passengers will spend most of
their time. After all, ships
today are like a floating city
with much the same attrac-
tions as found ashore.
You can dine in a fine
restaurant and attend a
Broadway-style production
after dinner. You can exercise
your body in a modern fitness
room or exercise your arm at
the slot machines. You'can
play bingo or bridge, splash in
a pool or take the' sun in a


deck chair.
Lounges and bars offer
cocktails and conviviality -
and you don't have to worry
about driving home. You can
dance to rock under pulsing
strobe lights, or to Gershwin
tunes under the stars. Maybe
meet someone you really like,
maybe not.
Bring the kids. All ships
have playrooms equipped
with games and computers,
and most have counselors to
guide and care for children.
And they'll love the experi-
ence.
At ports of call, the choices
broaden.
Most ships spend a day
and evening in Nassau,
enough time to explore much
of the Bahamian capital.
Some passengers take in
the sights, visiting Fort Char-
lotte; climbing the Queen
Elizabeth staircase, carved into
a rock cliff; peering at marine
life in CoralWorld's underwater
observatory; playing golf at
Paradise Island.
Nearly every passenger
saunters through the famous
straw market to pick up a bas-
ket, purse or hat. Others head
for the duty-free shops to load
up on Limoges china, Chanel
perfume and Black Label
scotch, while the more pur-
poseful canvass the Bay Street
boutiques for just the right
designer outfit. There's time
in the evening, too, to take in
a goombay show or sample
Bahamian. cuisine in a native
restaurant.
Beaches beckon the out-
doorsy types, not just for sun-
ning and swimming, but for
parasailing, waterskiing, div-
ing and fishing. Bahamian
waters are like no other -


Hilton Daytona Beach Ocean Walk Village opens first phase
,, ~y eac 0 an W al V.'. -; .\. ,. **i lla ** -: j 1:**;, M -; ***" *


STAFF REPORT


Hilton Hotels Corporation
(NYSE:HLT) announced the
opening of the first phase of
the new Hilton Daytona
Beach Ocean Walk Village.
The property, which will
have 742 rooms when the
second phase opens in early
summer, is undergoing a $20-
million refurbishment pro-
cess in order to become a
Hilton, and will bring re-
newed vitality to the Ocean
Walk Village vacation and
entertainment district.
The Hilton Daytona Beach
Ocean Walk Village is owned
by MSPA Acquisition II, L.P., a
joint venture between Pyr-
amid Advisors LLC and the
Morgan Stanley Real Estate
Fund. Pyramid Hotel Group,
a division of Pyramid Ad-
visers, LLC, manages and is
overseeing the renovation of
the hotel, which is being
operated under a franchise
license agreement with Hil-
ton Hotels Corporation.
"With the largest conven-
tion facilities in the area, an
idyllic beachfront location,
and a wealth of recreational
activities nearby, the new
Hilton Daytona Beach Ocean
Walk Village will be an ideal
destination for both business
and leisure travelers," said Jeff
Diskin, senior vice president,
brand management, Hilton
Hotels Corporation. "With its
fresh new collection of ser-
vices and amenities, this
newly converted Hilton will
quickly become a centerpiece


for our brand on the Atlantic
Coast."
The dramatic renovation
of the property focuses on
maintaining its traditional
Floridian style while modern-
izing the guest experience
and taking full advantage of
the hotel's beachfront loca-
tion. The lobby has been
reconfigured to offer breath-
taking views of the ocean. The
South Tower restaurant,
which will open with the sec-
ond phase of the renovation,
will be relocated to the beach
side of the hotel to provide
year-round indoor/outdoor
dining. The guestrooms are
being completely refur-
bished, with new bathrooms,
furniture, beds, carpeting and
wall coverings. The new inte-
rior design is classy yet mod-
em; some rooms are being
furnished with dark wood,
plush furniture and a mix of
mellow gold, greens and reds,
while other rooms are
endowed with the style of a
summer home with distinct
shades of blue, yellow and
light green. Lush new land-
scaping will create a grand
and inviting sense of arrival.
Standard amenities in all
guestrooms are high-speed
Internet access, in-room

clear and sparkling, and the
most lovely shade of green.
More ships than ever now
take passengers to private
islands for a beach party on
the day following their visit to
Nassau. These are popular
outings, giving passengers a
chance to get in a little beach
sun and fun, and maybe do
some sunning, swimming,
snorkeling or sailing.
Typically, the cruise lines
serve a buffet lunch ashore -
hot dogs, hamburgers and
fried chicken with the usual
fixings is standard and, of
course, they set up a couple of
beach huts to offer drinks, for
a price. Beach volleyball lures
the active types, chaise loung-
es the sun worshippers. Us-
ually, there's a native craft
shop for souvenir seekers.
But the beauty of a cruise
- especially a short one is
that you don't really have to
do any of these things if you
don't feel like it. You don't
have to take part in every
activity, or even in ANY activ-
ity. You don't have to eat in the
dining room; you can get
room service. You don't have
to gamble or go to the theater
or sit by the pool. And you
don't have to go ashore at a
port of call.
Indeed, for many, the real
pleasure of cruising is simply
enjoying three nights and two
days of pampering: No meals
to fix, no clothes to wash,
almost no schedule to keep,
taking each day as it comes.
It's your time, and it's total-
ly up to you how you use it on
a cruise ship. Really, the worst
thing that happens on most
weekend cruises is that. on
Monday morning, you have
to disembark.

'Mountains Beyond Mountains' selected as One Book for 2005


"Mountains Beyond
Mountains," the latest nonfic-
tion work by Tracy Kidder, has
been selected as this year's
book for Sarasota County's
annual One Book, One Com-
munity celebration. Kidder,
who will appear at two venues
in Sarasota and Venice in late
May to discuss his latest book,
is the Pulitzer Prize-winning
author of "The Soul of a New
Machine," "House" and
'"Among Schoolchildren." The
Sarasota County Board of
Commissioners issued a
proclamation recently desig-
nating May 2005 as One Book,
One Community month
throughout the county. The
proclamation was issued as
part of the county's obser-
vances of National Library
Week.
"Mountains Beyond
Mountains" tells the story of
Dr. Paul Farmer, a Harvard-
educated physician who
works to fight disease and
poverty in Haiti. He is a
founder of Partners in Health,
which seeks medical solu-
tions for people in poor coun-
tries who often suffer from
preventable and treatable dis-
eases.
Each year the Sarasota
County Library System pre-
sents One Book, One Com-
munity, a series of events that
encourages everyone in Sara-
sota County to read and dis-
cuss the same book. This
year's series of events, includ-
ing Kidder's appearances, are
being sponsored by the
William G. Selby and Marie
Selby Foundation (in com-
memoration of its 50th an-
niversary, "Celebrating a Tap-
estry of Giving") and by Sara-
sota County Libraries. Kid-
der's-appearances are being
arranigedby Sarasoia News &'
Books.
'Mountains Beyond
Mountains' is the perfect
choice for this year's One
Book celebration," said Nancy
Pike, Sarasota County Librar-
ies director. "It fits the Selby
Foundation's 'giving' theme,
and is designed to inspire
everyone in Sarasota to think
and talk about what they can
give to the community."
The author's appearances
are free to the public, but


advance tickets are required.
Kidder speaks at 2 p.m. and 7
p.m. Wednesday, May 25, at
Holley Hall in the Beatrice
Friedman Symphony Center,
Sarasota; and at 2 p.m.
Thursday, May 26, at Church
of the Nazarene, Venice.
Leading up to these events,
libraries throughout Sarasota
County will host discussion
groups to talk about the book.
To find out more, visit any
Sarasota County library, visit
online at sclibs.net, or call the
Sarasota County Call Center
at 861-5000 and ask about

with RiverBarge

Excursion Lines Inc.


STAFF REPORT
Nearly 200 years ago, Cap-
tains Meriwether Lewis and
William Clark began their re-
markable three-year journey
through the unexplored West,
which resulted in major contri-
butions to American history.
Those looking to com-
memorate this legendaryvoy-
age are invited to barge back
through time with RiverBarge
Excursions America's, Junc-
tion The Route of Lewis and
Clark.
From July 30 to Aug. 7, the
R/B River Explorer is redis-
covering the first leg of Lewis
and Clark's journey with its
nine-day expedition begin-
ning in Louisville, Ky., near
the Falls of the Ohio River.
Causing the river to gradually
drop 26 feet in elevation over
a two-an-a-half mile stretch,
the falls are home to magnifi-
cent fossil beds proving the
existence of an ocean and
coral reef more than 350 mil-
lion years ago. The barge con-
tinues through McAlpine,
Cannelton, Newburgh and
Smithland locks on the Ohio
River, and arrives in Hen-
derson, Ky., established by the
Transylvania Land Company
in 1797. After heading to New
Harmony, Ind., and Paducah,
Ky., 'America's River Town,"
guests can witness the conflu-
ence of the Ohio and Mis-
sissippi rivers, then-travel the
upper Mississippi River to
Cape Girardeau, Mo., for an
afternoon of antique shop-
ping or tours of historic
homes before continuing to
Chester, Ill. Guests are invited
to uncover the history 'and
beauty in the river -town's
countryside as they make

MILLER frompaoe7B


called "Greatest Generation,"
boomers are much less con-
nected to their communities
and far less civically engaged,
which means that boomers
vote less, read newspapers
less, are less apt to join
churches or civic organiza-
tions and are less inclined to
volunteer. One way to get
uninterested people involved
in volunteer activities is to let
them know the vast opportu-
nities that are out there and
how they can help. Here are
some great resources to help
you find your niche.
Senior Corps
A national program ad-


ministered by the Corpor-
ation for National and Com-
munity Service that helps
older volunteers find volun-
teer assignments in their
communities that best
match their interest and tal-
ents.
There are several pro-
grams under Senior Corps
including:
RSVP (Retired and Senior
Volunteer Program): One of
the largest volunteer pro-
grams in the nation, that
offers people 55 and over a
diverse range of volunteer
opportunities. Volunteers
organize neighborhood
watch programs, tutor chil-


dren, renovate homes, teach
English to immigrants, assist
victims of natural disasters
and serve their communities
in many other ways.
Foster Grandparent
Program: Links senior volun-
teers to children who need
their help.
Senior Companion
Program: Places its volun-
teers with adults needing
extra assistance to live in the
community, such as frail
older persons.
Special Volunteer Program
- Homeland Security: Offers
activities to help make com-
munities safer, stronger and
better prepared to respond to


any kind of disaster.
To learn what volunteer
opportunities are available in
your area visit volunteer-
friends.org or seniorcorps
.org, or call (800) 424-8867.
1-800-VOLUNTEER
Provides a direct connec-
tion to dozens of local volun-
teer opportunities that
match interests, skills and
the common desire to make
a difference. Visit 1-800-vol-
unteer.org or call (800) VOL-
UNTEER (800-865-8683).
VolunteerMatch
Offers an impressive list of
volunteer opportunities

Stroke screenings
Dear Savvy Senior,
My best friend who just
turned 60 had a stroke recently
and is now living out the rest of
his days in a wheelchair and can
hardly speak. What happened
to him scares me more than
anything. I can't think of any-
thing worse than a disabling
stroke. Is there any new health
test out there that can help pre-
dict or prevent a stroke? I've
seen firsthand what a stroke can
do, and I don't want it to hap-
pen to me. Scared of Strokes
Dear Scared,
Have you ever heard of the
carotid ultrasound or the
ankle-brachial test? Two sim-
ple, painless tests that can
help you avoid a future
stroke. Here's what you


0 should know.


Stroke prevention
Stroke is the leading cause
of disability in the United
States, and the third-leading
cause of death after heart
disease and cancer. Many
vascular experts say everyone
over the age of 60 and
younger people with high
risk factors for stroke (high
blood pressure, diabetes,
obesity or a family history)
should be screened for artery
disease.
Here are two screening
tests you should know about:
Carotid ultrasound: Used
to spot fatty plaque buildup
in the carotid arteries on
each side of the neck. When
plaque blocks the blood flow,
a stroke can occur and brain
tissue dies.
But once the plaque is
found, it can be controlled
with drugs and a better diet,
or in advanced cases, carotid
surgery may be necessary.
Ankle-brachial test: Used
to measure the plaque
buildup and general health
of the entire body's blood
vessels.
It is a good predictor of
stroke, heart attacks and cir-
culation problems in the legs,
which can cause people pain
when they walk.
Unknown
Despite being 20 years old,
the carotid ultrasound and
ankle-brachial test are rela-
tively unknown and often
overlooked exams.
The main reason for this is


because Medicare and pri-
vate insurers don't pay for
them as general screening
tools.
And, the test can cost sev-
eral hundred dollars if you
get them done at a hospital,
which keeps many doctors
from recommending them.
Screening options
There are several afford-
able options for carotid ultra-
sound and ankle-brachial
screenings.
Here are sonle good
resources to check into:
Life Line Screening: A
Cleveland-based company
that offers carotid ultrasound
and the ankle-brachial tests
for $45. They also offer
screenings for aortic
aneurysms and osteoporosis.
They have more than 50
ultrasound teams that travel
to 14,000 sites around the
country each year. To find an
upcoming screening in your
area visit lifelinescreening
.com or call (800) 697-9721.
American Vascular
Association: Offers free
screenings, held in May, at
more than 200 sites in
around 40 states. To find a
screening site near you visit
vascularweb.org or call 877-
282-2010
Legs for Life: A public edu-
cation program that offers
free screenings in September
at hundreds of hospitals and
clinics nationwide. Visit legs
forlife.org.
Not full-proof
No test is full-proof. The
carotid ultrasound and
ankle-brachial test help pre-
vent strokes that are caused
by carotid-artery blockage,
which is the single most
common cause of stroke.
However, these tests will
not help prevent hemorrhag-
ic strokes that are caused
when a blood vessel in the
brain burst, or a stroke.
caused by atrial fibrillation,
which is an irregular heart-
beat that over decades forms
clots that float to the brain.
Savvy resource
American Stroke
Association: A division of the
American Heart Association
offers free brochures on
stroke care, prevention and
emergencies, and a free sub-
scription to Stroke Con-
nection Magazine, published
six times a year. Call (888)

ARC: Helping working families help their pets


STAFF REPORT


ARC is a coalition of seven
animal welfare organizations
that focuses its efforts on
spaying and neutering. Its
mission is to end the killing of
adoptable dogs and cats in
Sarasota County and pro-
mote and support programs
involving mutually beneficial
relationships between people
and companion animals. Un-
controlled breeding among
dogs and cats has led to an
over-population crisis of as-
tounding nationwide propor-
tions. More than 4,000 dogs
and cats are euthanized each
year in Sarasota County. ARC
aims to substantially de-
crease the number of shel-
tered, abandoned and eutha-
nized animals with an afford-


able spay/neuter program.
ARC provides low or no-
cost spays and neuters for
income eligible families. By
using a mobile clinic, its ser-
vices are more accessible to
countywide residents. The
Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic
has locations in North Port,
Venice and Englewood, as
well as three northern loca-
tions in Sarasota County and
two locations in Manatee
County.
Appointments must be
scheduled in advance. Please,
call 957-1955, Ext. 5
During the month of April,
the clinic will be located at the
following sites:
Wednesday, April 20, Ro-
barts Arena, 3000 Ringling

DIANA from page 1B
his part to enrich its coffers
recently by making several
trips to St. Petersburg, pur-
chasing additional items for
his collection on each occa-
sion. On the day we toured
that show together for an
April 6 day trip story in Let's
Go!, he purchased a replica
cup and saucer.
"I have now seen the ex-
hibit nine times," Hoatson
said last Tuesday.
The Diana show has the
one-of-a-kind items, Diana's
wedding dress and several
important gowns and outfits
worn by the princess on special
occasions. It has her ballet
shoes, school uniform, luggage
and passport. Those things
belong to the family and will
eventually go to her children,
Princes Harry and William,
when they come of age.
Hoatson is unlikely to ever
own one of Diana's famous
outfits or a dress worn to a
significant event, yet he has
managed to assemble photos
of Diana wearing many of
those significant ensembles
and the signatures from the
designers of some of her
clothing. The wedding dress
was designed by young Lon-
don designers David and
Elizabeth Emanuel. Hoatson
has David's autograph, but not
Elizabeth's. The couple di-
vorced since designing the
gown that made them famous.


(Elizabeth Emanuel reported
for the London Mirror on the
clothing selected by Camilla
Parker Bowles for her April 9
wedding to Prince Charles.)
Several postcards in Hoat-
son's collection depict Diana in
outfits from the early days of
her relationship to the Prince of
Wales. Often designed by
Bellville Sassoon, the clothing
worn then had a less sophisti-
cated, school-girl quality. The
firm also designed her going-
away outfit and the pink flow-
ered dress worn to Prince
William's christening.
Recordings and videos of
the wedding, including the
vows and the music, are other
key elements of Hoatson's
Diana collection.
Money couldn't buy some
of the items in the collection.
"Mario Testino did the last
portraits of Diana when she
did the dress auction," Hoat-
son said.
Hoping for posters of Di-
ana wearing those dresses
that fetched several million
pounds for AIDS, he wrote to
the manager of the gift shop
at the National Portrait Gal-
lery in London.
"They said 'No,' he said.
"Thenri tried to buy them but
the copyright was $15,000."
- To every thing there is a sea-
son, and a time to every pur-
pose under the heaven...
The Holy Bible: Proverbs
- Ecclesiastes
A few months later a pack-


age arrived at Hoatson's
home. It was near the date of
his birthday, March 14. The
year was 2001. The return
address was the National Por-
trait Gallery in London. Inside
- the posters.
"They were just laying
around the gift shop," he said,
"so they sent them to me."
The manager had remem-
bered his request and rather
than throw the posters out,
she sent them to Hoatson,
assistant director of Student
Services at Keiser College in
Sarasota.
New friends, including his
girlfriend Lisa Mundy, have
been another bonus Hoatson,
has acquired with his growing
collection.
"We met because we were
both bidding on the same
item on e-Bay," he said. "Lisa
does Fergie's official Web site."
That seems to have led to a
secondary collection. The two
already have tickets to a gala
event in Chicago next fall
where they will meet Sarah
Ferguson again. Hoatson
owns several items personal-
ized by Fergie, including
Christmas cards.
No single item will make
his collection complete but
Hoatson hopes eventually to
acquire an invitation to The
Order of Service for Diana's
funeral. One sold recently at
auction for $750.
"... and more items signed
by her,'k he said.

be able to order more appro-
priate diagnostic tests.
I recommend semi-annual
examinations for my patients.
More frequent examination
allows for earlier detection of
problems and therefore earli-
er treatment. In my opinion,
the physical examination is
the most vital part of any vet-
erinary office visit.
Having pets vaccinated has
dramatically reduced the inci-
dence of contagious diseases.
Canine distemper was once a
common ailment with some
veterinarians I've talked to
reporting two-three cases a
week (25-30 years ago). Now
distemper is rare in my prac-
tice; we diagnose one-two
cases per year. Distemper is
only one example of a disease
prevented by vaccination.
Parvovirus in dogs and
feline leukemia virus in cats
are also diseases of great
importance. Quality vaccines,
administered properly, are
the reason for the decline in
these problems. While fre-
quency of vaccination and
duration of immunity are hot
topics in the veterinary pro-
fession, there is no question
of their importance to the
health of our pets.
Since some parasites com-
mon in animals have the abil-
ity to affect humans, fecal
examination is one of the
most important tests run in
veterinary clinics. Besides the
potential threat to people,
intestinal parasites can cause
a wide range of problems in
pets,
Pets with gastrointestinal
problems (vomiting, diar-
rhea, lack of appetite) should
be checked for intestinal par-
asites. If left unchecked; some
intestinal parasites can kill
the animal. I don't know a vet-
erinarian who hasn't treated a
puppy that died from hook-
worm anemia. Many pets
with intestinal parasites don't
show any signs that the
worms are there, which is why
fecal examinations are often
performed as part of routine
visits.
By now, nearly everyone
knows about heartworm pre-
vention for both dogs and
cats. The introduction of
these products revolutionized
parasite control. Over the
years, heartworm prevention
has evolved from daily med-
ication, to.monthly tablets, to
monthly chewables with
added intestinal parasite con-
trol (one product added flea
control as well), to monthly
topicals.
All of these formulations
are still available and work
well. The important thing is
that your pet (dog or cat) is
taking one of these to prevent
heartworm disease. Heart-
worms cause a slow death in
dogs due to congestive heart


failure, and cats often have
cluonic vomiting.
The cost to prevent this
disease is between $0.09 and
$0.26 per day depending on
the size of the pet. (I think it's
well worth it). Flea control

Hopewell, a place o peace for


those who have nowhere to rest


STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEFF TAVARES. PHOTO EDITOR
jtavares@venicegondolier.com

There were no grieving relatives or friends
present when Nancy Weston
was buried on March 10 in Hopewell
Memorial Park on Bee Ridge Road in
Sarasota County.
Eleven men, seven of whom were Sarasota,
County inmates, laid Weston.
in the ground.


Rev. John Marks offers words at Weston's burial.


Wolfenbargar and Marks stand beside Weston's coffin.


Nancy Weston was born
April 21, 1936, and died
Jan. 14, 2005. These are the
only two things Ed Wolf-
enbarger, park naturalist
with Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation, knew as he
watched the inmates lower
Weston's plain wooden cof-
fin into the ground on that
damp and chilly morning in


March.
Wolfenbarger supervises
Hopewell Memorial Park,
which is owned and main-
tained by Sarasota County.
The county has used the
cemetery since the 1950s to
bury residents of the county
who have no friends or rela-
dives and no resources for
burial. Wolfenbarger has,.


since taking over the super-
vision of the cemetery in
September 2004, buried
eight Sarasota county resi-
dents.
"The attitude we take to
those that are less fortunate
than ourselves, reflects on
who we are as a communi-
ty," said Wolfenbarger.
Rev. John Marks of The


Christian Retreat in
Bradenton goes with
Wolfenbarger to each burial
to offer some words.
"Everyone should have
someone to say some words
at the end," said Marks.
So this morning, as he has
done for two or three years,
Marks reads passages from
the bible as Nancy Weston, a'


stranger to Mlarks and all the
men present, is buried.
"I feel a devotion to this.
It's an honor," said Marks.
All seven of the inmates,
who volunteer who for the
grave-digging detail, are
given the option of returning
to the truck before Marks
begins the service. All stay as
Marks says some words for


Weston.
