VENICE'S CHANGING SKYLINE: IS ANOTHER 10-STORY CONDO IN CITY'S FUTURE?


City: Don't point

Venice responds to Sarasota County blaming transportation
woes on council-approved developments by showing the
numbers that tell a different story.

Fisherman's Wharf owner John Konecnik would like to build a 105-foot tall condominium building, which
would be just to the right of and behind the Hatchett Creek Bridge's bridge tender tower. Konecnik has not
applied for permits with the city, yet,

BYJJ.ANDREWS

It comes as no surprise to City
Manager Marty. Black that the
Fisherman's Wharf owner is out to
improve public access to the water.
His method of funding those
improvements, however, may
receive little support.
While he hasn't even applied
yet, John Konecnik's initial rede-

The 105-foot tall condominium
tower on 2.1 acres that would fund
those changes does.
"Public access has been a con-
sistent thing, and I think that goes
back to his boating background,"
Black said Friday. "He's been very
genuine from that perspective."
Konecnik's goal is to build a
new harbormaster building, add
public walkways along the water
that connect toVenetianWaterway
Park, and renovate his Marker 4
restaurant, retail and scuba-diving
shops. Sarasota County already
has approved a 400-foot floating
dock, but Konecnik is about to
apply again and try for another
286 feet, which county commis-
sioners denied last year.

VHS accused of failing


to meet special needs

The father of a visually impaired student at Venice High filed a
complaint this week with the Florida DOE for failing to provide
accommodations promised under his son's Individualized
Education Plan.


A teaspoon of growth isn't as bad
as a gallon's worth.
In the eyes of City Manager N larty
Black, Venice's teaspoon is being
blamed for all of Sarasota County's
transportation problems by Coutnty
Administrator Jim Ley.
Take a look at the more than
12,000 new living units approved
just outside the city limits that's
where the real transportation
impact is coming from, according to
the city.
And all of that was approved by
Sarasota County government, a fact
Black pointed out to Ley in a thiee-
page letter Friday.
."The finger-pointing does not
help," Black said Friday' "Pointing
the finger at the city doesn't help
deal with the issues.
.,"The county, in essence, has
approved a whole new city on our
borders that will affect our services. I
\vas, farnkl. surprised at the
amount of development they've
approved."
This is one of the first times Black
has confronted the county since
assuming leadership of Venice 16
months ago.
Joint planning lacking
Ley sent letters to Black on April
13 and 25 that criticized the city's
development policies, accused the
city of growing at a rapid rate and
indicated city staff was not working
with county planners.
Tossing out a litany of facts and
figures, Black pointed out that
Venice only has 479 new living units
on the development books this year.
In South Venice and North River
Road, the county has 12,078 newliv-
ing units during that same time
frame. This equals nearly 7,000 acres


GROWTH GLANCE
City Manager Marty Black responded
to Sarasota County's accusations of
overdevelopment by pointing out
development is growing three times
faster just outside the city limits in
South Venice and North River Road.
Here are some of the statistics:
Venice S. County
Projects 10 19
Acres 258 6,933
Living Units 479 12,078

LARGEST DEVELOPMENTS
Venice Willow Chase, 147
units.
County Boca Royal (South
Venice) 2,401 units; Boynton/
McElmurray (South Venice) 1,681
units; Tuscano (South Venice) 1,551
units; Blackburn Settlement
(Center/River road) 1,490 units; and
Stoneybrook (Center/River road)
1,400 units.

worth of new homes along the city's
borders.
Venice's total size developed
and undeveloped is only 9,800
acres.
And while the county has criti-
cized city approvals, Black does not
believe county planners consider
the impact on city roads, beaches,
parks and other senices in consid-
ering its 19 projects.
"It's not clear in any of these
materials how the county is address-
ing these impacts," Black said. "I
don't believe they do (review city
impact). That is why we need a joint
planning agreement. ... Also, the
city needs to do a betterjob of look-
ing at impacts on the county."

You can't tell Michael Laneve is visu-
Sally impaired. In almost everywayhe's a
normal teenager ready to take on the
world. -
I-is partial blindness, brought on by
a stroke at 9 months old, and continu-
ing seizures are what sets this young
man apart from his peers.
Michael acknowledges his visual
impairment but says it shouldn't keep
him fiom earning a diploma.
But that's just what will happen, says
his father, Mark Laneve, because
Michael hasn't received accommoda-
tions promised since last year under
federal Exceptional Student Education
rules, and he's failing courses because
of it.
"At this point, I just want him to get a
diploma so he can move on with his
life," Laneve said.
At the beginning of each year a list is
distributed to all teachers apprising
them of students with special needs or
circumstances. Michael's name was
supposed to appear on a list of ESE stiu-

the past two years is a dome

useless."
Mark Laneve, father
of VHS student Michael,
who is legally blind

dents, said Laneve, but VHS educators
admit it didn't make the list.
Michael had been in the program for
years, since he attended Laurel
Nokomis School, but during his transi-
tion to Venice High, somehow, his
name was dropped.
"Once a student is identified as
needing special services, they remain in
the program unless they -are dis-
missed," said Mike McHugh, director of
pupil support services at Sarasota
County School District.
"If a student is legally blind, he is
probably going to remain eligible for
the program."

Miller, Rod riguez join forces in Osprey project


They've formed Waterford at Bay Street Village to
build 500 of the condominiums and townhouses.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Mike Miller and Henry
Rodriguez, two of the area's
busiest. developers, have
joined forces to build the Bay
Street Village and Town
Center at U.S. 41 and Bay
Street in Osprey.
The $180 million develop-
ment of an urbanist shopping
village that will include
restaurants, professional off-'
ices and boutiques at street
level and apartments on the
second floor, will be centered
around the Osprey public
library, to be built on 3/2 acres
of land donated to Sarasota
County by Rodriguez. The


mixed-use development also
will include 532 condomini-
ums and townhouses, from
which residents can walk
about a quarter mile to shop.
The 59-acre site, assem-
bled over a three-year period
by Rodriguez, also will
include a Wal-NMart Super-
Center, which is expected to
open in mid-August.
Rodriguez said that his
company, SDC Communities,
and Miller's Waterford 'C6m-
panies agreed last Thursday
to form Waterford at Bay
Street Village L.L.C. SDC will
be responsible for the archi-
tecture, streetscape, elevation
and theme of the shopping
village and the housing.


Waterford will build 500 of the
condominiums and town-
houses. The remaining 32 will
be incorporated into the
shopping village.
"I've been very impressed
by the way that Henry has
worked with the Osprey and
Nokomis communities to
create this development, then
delivered a product that the
county has sought for a long
time," Miller said. "Employing
the new urbanist village con-
cept to revitalize Osprey is a
marvelous advance in devel-
opment."
Rodriguez explained that
Miller's "deep commitment to
building new mixed-use
communities within older
areas, as he is doing inVenice,
convinced me that we think
alike. I'm thrilled to be in this
venture with him."


A convert
When the county commis-
sion unanimously approved
the petition to rezone the
land that is to become Bay
Street Village, it, extolled
Rodriguez for the effort he
made to win the support of
the Osprey community.
In that Dec. 17, 2003, hear-
ing, he recalled the concern
expressed by commissioner
Nora Patterson about height
and setback restrictions on
Bay Street. Although the
approved petition did not
stipulate tle 35-foot height
limit or the 57-foot setback,
Rodriguez made certain that
they were in his design.
"I wanted to satisfy every
concern," he recalled, "even if
I was not required to do so."
Rodriguez disclosed that
he and Miller have visited


several village developments
in the state in recent months.
"I think it made a convert
of Mike to see them,"
Rodriguez said. "They repre-
sent Florida's future."
Waterford projects
In March, Waterford an-
nounced plans for an unde-
veloped area at Laurel Road
and Knights Traiil next to the
industrial district.
A 20-screen movie theater,
offices and commercial space
will be built on about 20
acres. An adjoining 53-acre
tract will be covered by apart-
ments, townhouses and
multi-family units priced
from $180,000 to about
$300,000.
Part of the area will be set.
aside for ball fields, parks and
playgrounds.


The company plans to
partner with the South
County Family YMCA to pro-
vide day-care services to resi-
dents.
Waterford has been active
on Venice Island. The first of
several projects between
Tampa Avenue and the
Intracoastal Waterway
involves replacing older
buildings with condomini-
ums. One tower is completed,
a second is nearing comple-
tion and a third is planned.
Rodriguez said that 60 per-
cent of the space in the
Osprey shopping village has
been leased or sold.
Construction of it and the res-
idential area is scheduled to
start next January. The first
condominiums should be
ready for occupancy by
September 2006.


County comp plan hearings start next week



BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

After four months of infor-
mal meetings, work on
amendments to Sarasota
County's comprehensive plan
takes the high road next week
as the county's planning com-
missioners begin public hear-
ings on the proposed changes.
"It's an 'opportunity to ask
ourselves what is on the hori-
zon that may impact our
vision and how do we address
obstacles or take advantage of
opportunities," said Anne
McClung, the county's plan-


ning director.
Growth is likely to be the
overriding theme of all the dis-
cussions.
Two weeks ago, during a
workshop to discuss the
process, Sarasota County
commissioners expressed
concern about the rapid pace
of growth in the county.
"I don't know if we're at the
tipping point or if we've passed
it, but I can't fathom growth
continuing at the pace it is
now," said commissioner
Shannon Staub during the dis-
cussion. "Part of me wants to
say 'Whoa, take a breath.' I'm


not saying moratorium, but
we need to see if we're out-
stripping ourselves."
Commissioners Nora
Patterson,. Jon Thaxton, Paul
Mercier and David Mills
expressed similar sentiments,
which will likely be echoed by
Planning Commissioner Joe
Barbetta, who has long been
critical about the impact of
growth in the county.
Hearings in Venice
During the public hearings,
the planning commissioners
will take comments from the
public on a variety of issues


from growth to neighborhood
planning to water policies and
other issues ,that define the
quality of life in Sarasota
County.
The planning commission-
ers will begin their public
hearings on proposed amend-
ments to the comp plan at 6
p.m. Wednesday, at the Robert
L. Anderson Administration
Center, 4000 South Tamiami
Trail, Venice. After hearing an
introduction and receiving an
overview of the amendments,
the commission will take com-
ments on the historic reserva-
tion, public buildings and'


related facilities chapters of
theplan.
The next meeting in Venice
will be at 6 p.m. May 25, Robert
L. Anderson Administration
Center. and be on the trans-
portation chapter.
The planning commission's
public hearings will continue
in June.
Once those hearings are
completed, the amended doc-
ument will'be sent for review
,and comment by various
regional and state offices. The
schedule calls for final public
hearings to take plan in
January and February 2006.


CORRECTION
The city of Venice
hired Southwest Pool
Builders at a cost of
$500 to clean a pool at
562 Marsh Creek Road.
The. $390,000 vacant
home in Sawgrass has
accumulated more
than $34,000 in fines
since February 2004
and is now in foreclo-
sure by the city because
of the dirty pool.
Because of a reporter's
error, a story inside
Friday's edition stated
city workers cleaned
the pool.
The Gondolier Sun
regrets the error.

Years first turtle nest found


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER


PHOTO COURTESY OF CHERYL DOSS
From left, Venice Police Officer Dave Aker, Fire Lt. Joe Silva, Firemedic Gerry Stause and
Fire Capt. Mike O'Connor were among the emergency personnel who rescued 2-week-old
kittens from inside the framework of a house in Venice Thursday. Also participating were
Venice police officers Paul Joyce, Jessica Kolodgy, Steve Scurek and Sgt. Mike Rose,
Sarasota County Animal Control Officer Carl Selletti, and Venice firemedic Eric Putnel. The
kittens were headed to the Sarasota County Humane Society, which accepts kittens from
birth on, but late Friday afternoon Karen Kroll agreed to provide them a foster home until
they are able to eat solid food.


The. first sea turtle nest of
the season, and possibly the
first on Florida's west coast,
was established on Manasota
Beach in Sarasota County this
week.
The loggerhead turtle
crawled onto the public
beach sometime Monday
night or early Tuesday morn-
ing.
Wilma Katz of the Coastal
Wildlife Club said, "As far as I
know it's the first nest on this
coast."
Sea turtle nesting season
began Sunday and runs
through Oct. 31.
Coastal Wildlife Club vol-
unteer Julie Peck found the
nest around 7 a.m. Tuesday.
Peck, a second-year volun-
teer, monitors a stretch of
shore running north from the
public beach.
"I was amazed we had it so
early," Peck said.
Turtle volunteers track the


location of each nest, as well
as the number of eggs it con-
tains, how many turtles hatch
and survive, how many die
and how many don't hatch.
The information is then
forwarded to state officials.
"I think we're doing an
important job to protect the
sea turtles," Peck said. "And
it's a wonderful way to spend
a morning on the beach."
Full swing ahead
Turtle volunteers also
record the number of false
crawls.
False crawls are when sea
turtles travel up the beach,
but 'don't lay eggs, either for
natural reasons or because of
some disturbance such as
light. The turtles either sur-
face on a different beach or
discard their eggs in the Gulf,
which destroys the eggs.
Volunteers found evidence
of a false crawl a day before
discovering the nest. Katz
said it could have been the
same turtle resurfacing to lay
t


its eggs.
"I'm glad they're here,"
Katz said. "I'm hoping for a
good (year)."
The number of area turtle
nests has been declining for
several years in a row.
Sarasota County, in part
because of its long coastline,
led all Florida's Gulf Coast
counties in 2004 with 2,076
nests on its 34.6 miles of
beach.
Charlotte County, by com-
parison, saw 607 nests last
year on its 13.8 miles of
beach.
The total, marking a six-
year low, was already weak
before last season's hurri-
canes struck.
Katz said sea turtles begin
to show up on shore in early
May. By June, the season
should be in full swing.
"We're hoping to see a cou-
ple more a day," she said. "It
all starts with a couple nests."

Sorry, it's not the rare woodpecker everyone's looking for


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER


Consider it an Elvis sight-
ing of the ornithological kind.
"It was big enough, but it
didn't have the right striped
pattern," said North Port resi-
dent Heather Foerster, who
was convinced she had video
footage of the rare ivory-
billed woodpecker living in
her yard.
Unfortunately, Elvis had
left the building Florida -
a long time ago.
"There is no way," said
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton, who has
studied birds of Florida for
years. "They don't have any
habitats left in Florida. They
were destroyed more than
100 years ago by the logging
industry."

ivory-billed, which likes bot-

"STUCK' FOOD PARTICLES
Sometimes a bit of food becomes "stuck" or impacted between
adjacent teeth. It can be very annoying and just won't be removed by
your tongue. If it is fibrous and remains there for a prolonged period it
can actually move teeth out of ,position and start a "pocket" in your
gum which will collect other food and may eventually lead to some
periodontal involvements. This food may have gotten stuck because of
beginning decay, a broken filling, tartar formation, lack of contact
points between adjacent teeth, or maybe it "just happened".
Try getting this impacted food loose by gently flossing between your
teeth. If the area is wider it may be helpful to tie a small knot in the
floss. This is particularly helpful if the food is trapped under a fixed
bridge. If this doesn't work, try to remove it with the soft, pointed end
of an interdental stimulator. The use of a water irrigator can also be
very helpful. If you can't dislodge it without damaging the gum, go to
your dentist. Don't count on it working itself out.

officer already broke the bad
news to her that her bird was
a pileated.
Thaxton said he has no
doubt the ivory-billed did
once live in Florida very
likely around the Okefenokee
swamp, which had those
characteristics.
But the species vanished
after extensive clearing
destroyed millions of acres of
virgin forests throughout the


South between the 1880s and
mid-1940s, according to the
Cornell Laboratory of
Ornithology at Cornell

"Even if we decided we
wanted to have that kind of

least a hundred years,"
Thaxton said.

When lawn chairs become missiles


The city's annual hurri-
cane preparedness
seminar offers a first-
hand account of
Charley's destructive
path through Punta
Gorda.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Roofs ripped off of houses.
Tree branches and lawn fur-
niture embedded in the sides
of buildings. Howling winds
that make it nearly impossi-
ble to hear.
When Venice Building and
Code Enforcement Director
Hans Behrens warns resi-
dents about the dangers of
hurricanes, they should pay
attention. Behrens and his
wife huddled in a closet as
Hurricane Charley ripped
through the state last August.
Because he had a newer
home built to stricter storm
standards, Behrens did not
lose his house like many of
his neighbors did in Punta
Gorda last summer. This was
an example of why building
and construction permits are
vital they make sure
tougher building codes are
followed.
On Friday morning, he
educated citizens on how to
prepare for this year's storms
and emphasized the impor-
tance of securing loose items
on a person's property.
"You have no idea how
much damage can be done
by lawn chairs and trash
cans," Behrens told the
crowd.

SAFETY FIRST
Go online to venicegov.com and click on the disaster protection
link for more information on hurricane preparation.
Here are some tips from the Venice Fire Department:
Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 until Nov. 30.
Historically, the most severe storms occur in this area after Aug. 1.
Purchase a weather radio.
Keep a fully stocked evacuation kit. This includes medical sup-
plies, two weeks' worth of prescription medication gallon of
water per person per day, blankets, batteries flashlight and radio.
Shutter or board window.i, and clear the yard of all loose
objects.
Obey mandatory evacuation notices. (


Harrigan shared his more
than 20 years of experience
with the crowd, answering
questions about storms.
Harrigan's most important
piece of advice was how
storm season predictions do
not matter.
As Punta Gorda discov-
ered, it only takes one direct
hit for devastation. Residents

PLYWOOD TIPS
Federal Emergency Management Agency offers advice on board-
ing up. Here are FEMA's plywood highlights:
Size: Plywood thickness should be 5/..8-inch, exterior grade.
There should be a 4-inch overlap on all edges.
Fastening: On wood frames. FEMA suggests using 1/4-inch lag
bolts and plastic-coated anchors on windows 3-by-4 feet or small-
er that penetrate the wall by at least 1 .inches. Larger windows
require 3 8-inch bolts at least 2 : inches long. Bolts should be
placed at 12-inch intervals around the frame.
Shutters: Openings larger than a standard plywood sheet
require a 2-by-4 bracing. placed at the top, middle and bottom.
Pressure: Four holes should be drilled in the center of any ply-
wood sheet to relieve pressure during a hurricane.


nance, which hits construc-
tion sites with stiff fines and
threatens jail time if construc-
tion debris is left out after a
hurricane watch is issued.
Venice is the only governmen-
tal body in a four-county
region to pass such a law.


. City council wants
Behrens and staff to draft a
comprehensive hurricane
debris law that applies to
every property within city
limits. That is turning out to
be a little more difficult, espe-
cially since there are only two


code enforcement officers
and more than 20,000 city
residents.
Behrens does not know
when a draft ordinance will
be completed.
There are other issues in
creating such an ordinance.
For example, must grocery
stores remove all shopping
carts within 24 hours of a hur-
ricane watch being issued?

Are they in violation whenev-
er a customer pushes a cart
into the lot?
"That's how serious council
takes this issue," Behrens said.
"This 'sister ordinance' is very
hard (to enforce). The ordi-
nance will have to be drafted
in such a way to appeal to the
public to comply."
So lucky
ABC-7 meteorologist Bob


need to take hurricane
watches seriously and be pre-
pared.
"We learned last year,
Florida is hurricane alley. ...
We were just lucky for so
many years," Harrigan said.

WHARF from page 1A


Condo hurdles
A lot has changed political-
ly in the four years' since
Waterfront on Venice Island
was approved, according to
Black, and there's little histor-
ical comparison between the
two properties.
The section of land being
redeveloped by Waterford
was a historic failure and bor-
dering on blighted, though
that label had never officially
been applied. Increased
height was one way to lure
Waterford into rebuilding and
beautifying the entire area
bordered by Venice Avenue
Bridge, U.S. 41 Business and
the Intracoastal Waterway.
"The Wharf has always
been successful," Black said.
"You could not say that about
the area between Hatchett
Creek Bridge and the intra-


GROWTH from page1A
Key complaint
County transportation
impact appears to be Ley's
major concern, according to
his letters.
"With the rapid develop-
ment within the city ofVenice
and resulting transportation
impacts to county and state
roadways, I believe it is time
for the city of Venice and
Sarasota County to come to
agreement on how trans-
portation impacts will be
handled in the future. ... The
county feels the transporta-
tion situation, due to city of
Venice approved develop-
ment, has reached a critical
stage in some areas," Ley
wrote.
Leywas in meetings Friday
and could not be reached for
comment.
Three key points in Blackls
response where:
"Rapid development" -'
Venice has only increased its
population by 8.6 percent the
past decade, compared to
Sarasota County increasing
by 18.8 percent.
Concurrency Recent
city decisions have not violat-
ed laws regarding concurren-
cy, which basically involves


coastal. That area had not
been commercially success-
ful."
Zoning standards limit
height at Konecnik's property
to 35 feet, though with city
approval, it could potentially
go to 105 feet.
Whenever Konecnik finally
applies, his project could be
the first "conditional use"
proposal Venice City Council
considers. The new ordi-
nance is up for a vote May 24
and places final approval of
all additional-height requests
on the shoulders of elected
officials, unlike the existing
ordinance that gives the
power to the planning com-
mission.
Konecnik said he may go
with large boat storage facili-
ties or some other commer-
cial ventures, which he


infrastructure impacts, and
none of council's rezoning or
comprehensive plan changes
involve final development
orders. Ley criticized changes
to about 66 acres of property
at Pinebrook and Laurel
roads for a proposed shop-
ping center. As Black pointed
out, that parcel of land is now
being considered as a med-
ical facility by Sarasota
Memorial Hospital, and all
concurrency requirements
will be adhered to during site
plan evaluations.
Disagreements As for
the city leaving out county
transportation requests,
Black writes that all final
development orders are
approved by the independent
Regional Planning Council.
Besides, the county requests
were not linked to legal
requirements, according to
Black.
Show us the money
County officials still have
not responded to Venice
accusing them of misallocat-
ing $2.5 million in road
impact fees, as was reported
in the Venice Gondolier Sun in
February. City council must'


believes would be less attrac-
tive, if he cannot obtain the
condominium tower.
Dock opinion
Approving a 686-foot-long
dock is another issue, and
Black believes city council
may have to give a recom-
mendation, even though it's
Saras6ta County officials who
must approve the project.
Council members did not
get involved during the previ-
ous approval process and did
not take a position, which
frustrated both opponents
and supporters of the dock
last July.
Since that time, marinas
and boat docks have been
disappearing rapidly because
of private developments.
There are just 11 public boat
ramps in Sarasota county,


with only 420 spaces. Four of
the 16 remaining marinas in
the area are under contract to
be sold to developers.
Most of the 286 feet of
Konecnik's dock that was
denied would've been dedi-
cated to transient boaters,
. complete with sewage pump-
out facilities and access to
electricity and drinking water.
Konecnik said boaters who
purchased fuel at the public
dock could empty their boat's
septic tanks for free.
Boaters simply dumping
their toilet waste in the water,
rather than paying for pump-
out service, has been a chron-
ic problem in some areas.
"Council probably will
have to provide some input to
the county on this, and they'll
have that opportunity," Black
said.


"The county, in essence, has
approved a whole new city on our
borders that will affect our services."
City Manager
Marty Black


approve the spending of
county impact fees collected
within city limits.
Black informed the county
of this five months ago and
has not received an answer.
The county had planned on
spending about $2 million of
the city's money on intersec-
tion improvements at
Jacaranda Boulevard and East
Venice Avenue, just outside of
city limits.
The city manager wants to
spend all $2.5 million on
intersection improvements
and a light signal at Laurel
and Knights Trail roads, the
only entrance for the county
landfill, PGT Industries and
numerous businesses.
All of these accusations
risk derailing monumental
planning agreements
between the city and county
before they finally get started.
Several months "ago, city


council and county commis-
sioners approved drafting
interlocal planning agree-
ments and working together
on U.S., 41 Bypass redevelop-
ment and transportation
needs.
Black does not believe ten-
sion is at a boiling point, but
he does want to make sure
negotiations start off on the
right foot. He claims that six
years ago, similar agreements
fell apart because all the
county wanted was conces-
sions from the city instead of
working together.
"I want to make sure we're
going into this agreement
knowing there are impacts
going both ways," Black said.

NEEDS from page lA


Laneve also said the school
failed to perform evaluations
required under federal laws.
McHugh acknowledged
the district is investigating
Laneve's complaint.
"We take parent com-
plaints seriously. We will sort
through the issues with Mr.
Laneve. If we find we have a
procedural error, we'll take
corrective action to make sure
it doesn't happen again,"
McHugh said.
"When ESE kids are identi-
fied, teachers know what
needs they have. It's not OK
for teachers to not know. If
that's happening, that's not
appropriate and we will fix it."
"Someone dropped the
ball," Laneve said. "Many of
my son's teachers had no idea
he was visually impaired. All
they've given him over the
past two years is a dome mag-
nifying glass, and that's use-
less. It was an experiment that
didn't work. Finally, this year
he received a couple of large
print textbooks for a few
classes."
'Legitimate concerns'
An IEP describes the spe-
cial education and related
services specifically designed
to meet the needs of a student
with a disability.
Among the accommoda-
tions that were checked off on
Laneve's IEP that might be
provided are large print books
or taped books, extended
time for assignment comple-
tion, copies of tests in large
print, being allowed to write
directly on the test instead of
answer sheet, additional time
for tests, and a volunteer
reader for materials not pro-
vided in large print or by tape.
Michael also is supposed to
sit in front on the left side of
the classroom.
"None of this happened,"
said Laneve.
At this point Laneve does-
n't feel the school is being
cooperative. He's met with
school officials, including a
district administrator, and
filed complaints with the
Florida Department of
Education, U.S. Department
of Education, U.S. Office of
Civil Rights, and the Florida
governor's office. He even
sent a letter to President Bush
asking for help a connec-
tion he made years ago as a
federal witness.
"He has some legitimate
concerns," said Demetria
Harvell, program specialist
with Florida DOE'S .Bureau of
Exceptional Student Services.
Once a formal complaint is
received the bureau has 60
days to investigate, then file a
report recommending what
corrective action, if any, to
take.
Meeting bombs
A meeting two weeks ago
between the Laneves and a
group responsible for
Michael's IEP at Venice High
didn't go well. Within minutes
a school guidance counselor
walked out of the meeting
after a disagreement with
Laneve.
Another team member
questioned what Michael's
responsibility is in seeking
assistance, saying it is ulti-
mately the student's responsi-
bility to seek help if he feels he
needs it.
The school's ESE liaison
recommended withdrawing
him from the only class
directly linked to his intended
vocation stage craft in
order to spend extra time in a
class on learning strategies,
which Laneve called "a study
hall with assistance."
"That isn't the kind of help
my son needs," Laneve said.
"Stage craft and theater is
how Michael made friends
and became part of the
school. It's what he plans to
do when he graduates.
"He needs someone to


read the assignments to him
in order to comprehend what
he is reading, and meet with
him regularly to provide extra
help. That's what the IEP is
supposed to do for him."
School principal Candace
Millington said she also is
monitoring the situation.
"Every concern of a parent
is investigated," Millington
said. "We do our best to see all
student needs are met. Mike ,
is a great kid. As far as I know

I,


On Friday, with a little more
than two weeks left in the
school year, Michael Laneve,
a visually impaired student at
Venice High, finally received
an audio textbook machine
that reads CDs aloud.

he is being successful in
school."
Impairment
"Michael's history includes
having a stroke at the age of
nine months with recurring
seizures through the present.
He was found to have a visual
field defect in both eyes,
which leaves him without
peripheral vision on the left
side of his visual field. He also
has a condition where his
right eye will turn out at
times, compromising his
depth perception," wrote
James Lenhart, an optometric
physician, in a letter to the
school.
It was Lenhart's report in,
March 2004 that was sup-
posed to be shared with
Michael's teachers, but was-
n't, claimed Laneve.

A school IEP committee
report recognized Mike as
visually impaired and "still in
need of services of the visual-
ly impaired program."
A reevaluation in August
2004 found Michael still
exhibited a disability and was
in need of ESE services.
Additional evaluations were
recommended.
"At the end of the year I
came to find out why We had
not heard from anyone
about how this was going to
be handled. No one seemed
to have knowledge of the sit-
uation. The optometricc
physician's) letter wasn't for-
warded to the person in

Laneve said.

"The doctor said it would
be OK to drive a car with a lot
of training on how to com-
pensate. I let Mike drive and
he went around the corner,
stopped at a stop sign,
looked both ways, and -
because he has no depth
perception:- drove straight
into a Cadillac and totaled
it."
"When I asked the doctor
how in God's name he can
drive, because he is basically
blind, his reply was, 'Oh, we
have lots of blind people dri-
ving in Venice.' Well, I won't
argue that point with him,
but I have watched Mike go
through much stress. His
self-esteem is going downhill
rapidly."

Family assist
Meanwhile, Laneve enlist-
ed the support of his niece,
Nicole Tyo, a special needs
supervisor and principal of a
special needs school in Ohio.
Tyo questions the usefulness
of Michael's IEPE
In a letter sent last month
to the Sarasota County School
District, Tyo wrote, "Back in
March 2004 the school asked
for Michael to have his vision
tested. The report was sent to
the school at that time.
Whether the information was
misplaced or sent to the
wrong person, it is an internal
problem that should not
adversely affect Michael.
"The standards say the
evaluation needs to take


place within 90 days of
parental permission. That
permission was given when
the school asked his father to
pursue.the vision test. He did
his part of the evaluation, and
unfortunately the school has
not done theirs."
Laneve is hoping his shot-
gun approach of filing com-
plaints to various officials will
result in some kind of action.
"I'm not just concerned
about my son, but all the kids
that come behind him,"
Laneve said. "Parents need to
know they have to fight.
"I'm not stopping until this
is remedied."

Softball, baseball teams to face the best


Tuesday night will be
hopping at the Venice
Complex.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Its still early in the regional
tournament for both the
Venice High softball and
baseball teams, but they
couldn't be facing any
tougher competition than
they will be on Tuesday night.
The Lady Indians, who
won District 11 and their
Region 3 opener against
Estero, finds a major obstacle
in its region semifinal -
unbeaten and top-ranked
Palm Harbor University High.
Meanwhile, the VHS base-
ball team, fresh from clinch-
ing a district title, will also be
going up against one of the
state's best in its regional
opener Tuesday night.
Mariner High, second-
ranked in Class 5A, was upset
by Estero in Friday's District
12 finals. That means the
Tritons will visit the Indians.
Following is a closer look at
each game.
SOFTBALL
If the Lady Indians found
Estero pitcher Jami
Whitcomb tough, how about
Palm Harbor University's
Dani Hofer.


"She's a big dog, one of the
top pitchers in the state,"
Venice coach Amy Kanter
said. "We're hoping to be on.
We'll take it inning by inning."
Hofer has a record of 19-0.
In the Lady Hurricanes region
opener Friday against
Seminole, Hofer threw a four-
hitter and struck out 14 in a 3-
1 victory.
Hofer is also a good hitter.
She was robbed of a home
run against
Seminole.
Other
offensive
threats for
PHU include
Elysha Agan,
who had
three hits
a g a i n s t Kanter
Seminole,
a n d
Stephanie Loza, who had two
hits and two RBIs against
Seminole.
Palm Harbor University is
27-0. The Lady Hurricanes are
defending state champions.
Kanter will start sopho-
more Heather Boyts against
PHU. She believes her team
will be able to hang with the
Lady Hurricanes.
"I think we have one of the
best defensive teams in the
state," boasted Kanter. "We're
hoping to hold them defen-/
sively."
. Venice's infield has been


outstanding. Mandy Simon is
at third,- Brittany Hipple at
short, Kristen Bailey at sec-
ond and Mo Sandidge at first.
Amber Davidson has to be
one of the top catchers in the
state.
Felicia Taylor plays a.
strong centerfield. Heather
Laird is solid in right field and
Courtney Bennett gets it done
in left.
Boyts has some pretty
strong pitching stats herself.
She is 8-4 with a tiny ERA of
0.57. She has surrendered 49
hits in 96 innings, striking out
127 and walking just 17.
BASEBALL
Estero did Venice no favor
by defeating Mariner in
Friday night's District 12 final.
That means the Indians'
first-round test in regionals
Tuesday night will come
against the Tritons, the No. 2
ranked team in 5A with a
record of 23-3.
Friday night's loss to Estero
snapped a 10-game winning
streak by Mariner. Th Tritons
had defeated Estero four
times during the regular sea-
son before losing to the
Wildcats 5-4.
The Indians will also be
facing one of the top pitchers
in the state. Casey Coleman
has a spotless record of 12-0.
He has given up just 31 hits in
63 innings pitched. He has


fanned 198 and his ERA is a
tidy 0.67.
"He throws from a lot of
angles," noticed Indian
coach Craig Faulkner. "He can
come over the top and
sidearm. I think he's already
signed with Gulf Coast. He
likes the outside part of the
plate. We'll have to go the
other way."
Coleman also swings big
aluminum. His batting aver-
age is .418 I
with three
home runs
and 25 RBIs.
Venice has ..
had an up-
and-down .
year. The .
Indians enter "-
Region 3 play
with a record Faulkner
of 14-13. They
are on the up, having won
their two district games.
Venice's top hitters this
season have been third base-
man Joel Ehrhart, outfielder
Matt Kindell and outfielder
Jason Staszewski.
The Indians have been get-
ting good defense from
Ehrhart at third, Jordan Lucas
at short, Josh Struble at sec-
ond and Staszewski in center-
field.
'Pitching-wise, Faulkner
still hasn't made up his mind
who will start, but he figures it
will be by committee.


Spring fling

Football is year-round in Florida, as evi-
denced by spring practice for high schools dur-
ing the month of May.
Venice High completed the first of three
weeks of spring drills with some heated action
Friday afternoon.
Coach Nick Coleman and his staff and
putting together the pieces of the puzzle for the
upcoming 2005 season.
There will be the Green vs. White scrimmage
this coming Friday the 13th and the annual
spring .game against Southeast will be held
Saturday night, May 21, at Powell-Davis
Stadium.


Staszewski pitched well in
the district final. Andrew Tilka
has battled a sore arm but can
still be effective. Greg Koehler
has looked awesome at times.
Ditto left-hander Jeremie
Cook.
"They (Mariner) have five
left-handed hitters in their
lineup," Faulkner said.
Out of the pen, Marty
Kenealy pitched great in the
district semifinal against Port
Charlotte. Joel Schmehl.has
been super strong as the late-
season stopper.
Adding fuel to the fire is the
fact that Venice shaded
Mariner in last year's region
opener.
"It's the same scenario as
last year," Faulkner said.
"Mariner was supposed to
win their district and they
didn't. Coleman pitched
against (Steve) Strausbaugh
and we won 2-1. They're a
good club. They do a lot of
things well."
So can Venice when it's hit-
ting on all cylinders.,

Python 12s


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice .Pythons AAU
baseball organization has
endured a busy spring with
four teams playing on dia-
monds across Southwest
Florida.
The Python 12-and-under
team has enjoyed success,
posting a record of 15-6
against competition from
Naples, Estero, Cape Coral,
Sarasota, Bradenton and
Palmetto.
Coach Jeff Rhodes' squad
also played in a mini-
International qualifier, plac-
ing third with a record of 2-1-
1.
Rhodes is a big supporter
of AAU ball.
"AAU 12-and-under plays
by high school rules with
expanded distances from
Little League," Rhodes point-
ed out. "There are also lead
offs and steals. The kids are
learning the high school
game at an earlier age and are
thriving in it."
Rhodes pointed out that all
the teams he runs up against
are strong.
"There are no district
restrictions," he said. "Players


are having a ball


. can be recruited from any-
where. The AAU teams are
solid all the.way through their
batting orders and the pitch-
ing is above average and
deep."
The Pythons 12-and-
under team included.
"We are a very god hitting
team by anyone's standards
and our pitching is solid,"
said Rhodes, a former Venice
High and professional
mound talent himself.
"Defensively, we have
improved greatly, especially
the play of our outfielders.
Baserunning is another area
where we have made
progress." ,
The Python 12s roster
includes Billy Badolato in the
outfield and at second base;
Brian Frost in the infield and
at catcher; Derrick Frye at
first base, third base and
pitcher; Daniel Heilman in
the outfield and pitcher;
Christian Martinez at third
base, first base and pitcher;
Raul Quinones in the outfield,
infield and pitcher; Aaron
Rhodes in the infield, outfield
and pitcher; Chris Runnion in
centerfield; Nate Schiavon at
catcher, infield and pitcher;
Corey Shotto at catcher and


pitcher; and Austin Smith in
right field and pitcher.
Pitching-wise, the team
ERA is 4.59. Top arms include
Rhodes, Schiavon, Quinones,
Shotto, Martinez and Frye.
The team batting average
is at .356 with a total of 19
home runs. Martinez leads
the way with eight, followed
by Frye with five and
Schiavon with three. Rhodes;
Shotto and Smith each have
one circuit clout.
The AAU State Tourna-
ment is up next for the
Pythons 12-and-under. It will
take place from May 20-22 in
Clearwater. There will be
approximately 50 teams in
two divisions. The tourney
starts with pool play and the
winners advance to champi-

Lake Venice drives to beat breast cancer


It's official, tournament season under way


COURTESY PHOTO


Members of the Lake Venice Country Club came together to fight breast cancer


BY DON HUTCHINS
CORRESPONDENT

Every year since 1996, the
Susan G. Komen Breast Can-
cer Foundation has hosted a
"Rally For a Cure" campaign
aimed as raising funds to fight
breast cancer.
The mission is to empha-
size the importance .of early
detection in the treatment of
breast cancer, and to support
the research goals of the
foundation.
This year marked the first
year a local golf club has
taken up its clubs to fight the
leading cause of death among
women aged 35-54, as well as
the leading cause of all cancer
deaths among women aged
55 and older.
Del Wilson, member of the
Lake Venice Golf Club, orga-
nized the club's participation,
which took place this past
Wednesday, May 4.
According to Wilson, as
well as all the other partici-
pants in this event, "breast
cancer is a major concern
among all women" which
ignited their desires to partic-
ipate in the rally.
The Lake Venice Golf
Club's membership is divided
into 9 hole and 18 holes. For
this fund-raiser, both the 9
and 18 holers' combined
efforts to raise money for this

Sixty-seven players ended
up participating in the event.
The events in which the
members participated inclu-
ded a closest to the pin con-
test, as well as best dressed,
best hat, and best outfit. Each
member dressed in pink to
support the charity.
In the closest to the pin
contest, Arlene Malcomson
came within 18 feet, 11 inch-
es of the cup giving her top
honors. Nine other partici-
pants landed on the green.
For her effort, Malcomson
won a pair of golf shoes. The
nine others received a free
golf ball. All prizes were do-
nated by the club.
Among the club's female
membership, 13 women are
cancer survivors. Linda
Haines wore a hat decorated
to commemorate the 13 can-
cer survivors..
According to one cancer
survivor, Jeanette Wilder. who
is in great health and who has
been cancer free for 21 years,
admits "early detection is the
key."

ed that "yearly mammograms
are a crucial element for early

Wilson admitted of the
Lake Venice Golf Club's first
year participation, "it was a
major success we raised
approximately $1,500,
which will be sent to the
Susan G. Komen
Foundation to continue its
fight."
The club organizer as well
as those who participated in
this recent charity event
remarked that they will con-

tion by participating every
year.

by a heavy overcast sky,
rainy weather, and at times

these elements dampened
the spirits of the partici-

fight against cancer.
With this type of enthusi-
asm, it seems that breast
cancer will soon be stuck in
a sand trap.

Well, we finally made it to
May 1, the local tournament
season is well underway.
Whether you want to play in a
stroke play event, a scramble
or even a best ball, the time is
now.
Over the past two week-
ends, the City of Sarasota held
it's annual championship. A
familiar name, Mark Leetzow
came out on top for the fifth
time. His total score of 280 (8
under par) easily outdis-
tanced his closest competitor,
Spencer King, who shot 288
or even par for the four day
event.
Other flight winners
included Ken Chapman in
the first flight with a 292 (4
over par) and Hunter Spitler,
the second flight champion,
shot 296 (8 over par). An
interesting note on these
three is that they are all mem-
bers of Bent Tree CC in
Sarasota. I wonder if there's
something in the water up
there.
The third flight winner was
Charles Walters Sr., who fired

Rehire not automatic at low-performing schools


The district and the teachers union agree on what
to do with teachers and other employees at
failing schools, and it doesn't include dismissal.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


School employees will
have to be rehired at schools
deemed "low performing"
under new contract language
adopted by the school board
May 3. Those that aren't can
go back and teach at their last
school of employment in
Sarasota County.
Bargaining. teams for the
school board and SC/TA, the
teachers union, reached ten-
tative agreement in April on
the proposed changes to con-


SCHOOL BOARD

NOTES
Policies advertised
On Tuesday the school
board put out for public com-
ment a new policy on trans-
portation liability. It requires
the superintendent to ensure
that school district is protect-
ed when transporting not
only students, but others to
events or activities the district
has agreed to participate in.
The board also amended a
policy requiring school build-
ing inspections. The amend-
ed policy, while still requiring
annual inspections of school
facilities, eliminates section
requiring the superintendent
to report on indoor radon lev-
els. Administrators said the
language wasn't necessary in
board policy.
State rules remain in effect.
In 1989 a Florida law was
passed requiring the district
to test every classroom on a
five-year rotation. In 2000,
lawmakers eliminated the
need to test classrooms
except for new construction
or major renovations.
For new construction,
radon tests covering 20 per-.
cent of ground-floor area are
initially conducted.
Citizens have 28 days from
May 3 to send comments to
the districtoffice on proposed
policies.
HP wins $5.8 million deal
The school board app-
roved a contract with
Hewlett-Packard for comput-
er technology equipment ser-
vices for the next year, not to
exceed $7 million.
HRI which bid $5.8 million
on the contract, won over pro-
posals submitted by 'Dell
Marketing L, IBM andVerizon
Select Services. Verizon was
eliminated from the bids for'
being nonresponsivee" to the
proposal. The contract is for'
one year, with the option to
renew for two additional one-
year periods.
And the winner is Kraft
Construction


School administrators got
the go ahead May 3 to begin
negotiations with Kraft
Construction Co., winner of
the main construction con-
tract for school "H," the
fourth elementary school
being built in North Port near
1-75 between Sumter and
Toledo Blade.
Board approval of the pro-
ject manager list allows the
district to enter into negotia-
tions with Kraft Construction
on' the $17. million project.
Kraft would serve as con-
struction manager of the pro-
ject, subcontracting out por-
tions of the contract.
The two-part project-man-
ager selection process drew
bids from seven area contrac-
tors. Three finalists were
interviewed by the district's
Professional Services Selec-
tion Committee, including
W.G. Mills Inc. and Willis A.
Smith Construction Inc., both
of Sarasota.
School "H" will serve 970
students, including -an area
serving an additional 30 autis-
tic children. The school will
house about 20 more class-
rooms than Cranberry
Elementary in North Port. ,

Staff Writer Greg Giles


tract language. Association
members already ratified the
proposal.
The new contract language
also provides financial incen-
tives to staff of the reconsti-
tuted school, and to an
extend the work day or school
year, if agreed to by both par-
ties.
Also adopted by the board
was a memorandum of
understanding with SC/TA
and Phoenix Academy staff
implementing the new lan-
guage. The memorandum
lines out the restructuring of


Phoenix Academy, a first-year
school for students with
behavioral problems who are
struggling academically. The
restaffing is considered a key
remedy for the school's past
performance.
Patricia Gardner, president
of SC/TA, said part of the
school's problem may have
been hiring too many young,
inexperienced teachers
thrust into an already difficult
setting without adequate
mentoring. Other'educators
left in the middle of the year,
she said.
"They may have gotten
started too, early," said
Gardner.
But that doesn't mean the
district is giving up.

Venice schools ready to 'go fib er"


Enlarging an easement granted to Comcast will
provide major high-tech benefits to Venice,

It was a relatively minor
item on the Sarasota County

da May 3, but the long-term

officials.
Comcast of West Florida

Sarasota County summer
schools are looking for a few
good PALS.
Summer school reading
camps offered by the school
district are geared toward
third-graders to bring them
up to speed before next year's
fourth-grade FCATs, which
determine whether students
advance to the fifth grade.
The summer reading
camps run from June 6 to July
14 at these South County
schools: Laurel Nokomis,
Garden (also serving Venice
Elementary students),' Taylor
Ranch (also serving
Englewood), Glenallen (also
serving Cranberry
Elementary students), and
Toledo Blade Elementary.

campus to assist with provid-
ing services to nearby schools
and expand its customer ser-'
vice in surrounding areas.
In exchange, Comcast
agreed to provide a fiber-
optic interconnect between
all public schools in the city of
Venice and the Landings,
where school district admin-
istrative offices are located.
It's part of a larger plan to
bring fiber-optic connectivity
into all county and school
district buildings.
"Venice right now has nor-
mal connectivity. This will be
the next generation where
they go fiber. We're trying to
get the majority of Sarasota
County schools hooked up


this summer in time for next
school year," said Ellery
Girard, executive director of
business support services
with the Sarasota County
School District.
"It's a deal that benefits
everyone. There are a lot of
positives to going fiber,"
Girard said. "In terms of infra-
structure, this takes technolo-
gy to another level in the
school system."
In keeping with
Superintendent Gary Norris's,
"Next Generation" emphasis
on technology, installing fiber
optics will help computer sys-
tems, allow schools to
streamline video, broadcast
from a distribution, center,
incorporate advanced video
teaching technologies, and
provide video archives for
student learning all at high
speed.

A modernm-day tale of the not-so-little pigs


yet's make sure we have this straight: All of
those pigs are actually signs?
Before we weigh in on that issue,
here's a brief recap of today's topic, in case you
spent the last six months on Pluto:
The Venice Art Center organized a fund-
raiser called Pigs in Paradise. People and busi-
nesses sponsored large models of pigs, deco-
rated them with the VAC's approval and, with
the city's OK, put them on public display.
They were auctioned off last week, with the
VAC making a ton of money and the lucky
bidders getting a trinket to replace that fading
lawn gnome in their front yards.
Re-enter the city, which has taken the posi-
tion that the pigs, having been deemed signs
under Venice law, cannot be displayed in pub-
lic view on private property. A letter from the
zoning department to the VAC in November


conveyed that information, but it apparently
wasn't communicated by the VAC to the pig
sponsors, artists or auction bidders.
Oops.
Admittedly, this isn't a major problem.
Many of the pigs are headed out of town, and
a portion of the remainder will go back on dis-
play where they originally were, something
the city has already approved.
But those going back on display only got a
year's reprieve, and a few people who bought
pigs planned to prominently feature them in
their yards now. All the purchasers were sur-
prised to find out after the fact, that the city
won't allow them to be visible on private prop-
erty something the VAC was negligent in
not passing along.
The real issue is whether the pigs are art or
signs. Another look at this seems to be in order.


We can see the city's basic point: A number
of the pigs arguably have some commercial
content on them, and they were installed on
bases with signs listing the sponsor and artist,
on public right of way where signs aren't
normally allowed especially to attract
attention.
Like it or not, the city does have the author-
ity to regulate some uses of private property. If
you disagree, put your pig next to your per-
sonal nuclear reactor. -
And we can accept that as originally dis-
played the pigs had characteristics of signs.
But removed from their bases and taken away
from any commercial setting, the pigs are no
more a sign than a fanciful mailbox stand or a
birdbath. If they're promoting anything, it's
Venice in general. The list of things that do
that would fill a column.


We suspect the city might have some
doubts about its position, because nobody
had an answer when we asked whether a pig
decorated privately but identically to one of
the VAC swine could be displayed in public on
private property.
That should be a no-brainer: If every VAC
pig is a sign, every pig exactly like one of those
pigs is a sign, too, subject to all the same stan-
dards. If our hypothetical private pig isn't a
sign, then there's a double standard.
We're not art experts, and we might not
want to still be looking at those pigs strewn
around the city years from now, but we can't
agree with the city on this one.
The pigs are art not everyone's idea of
art, but art nonetheless. Just like next year's
manatees, or pink flamingos or dare we
suggest it sharks will be.


Who would've



thunk it?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


There were a lot of misbe-
lievers at the event held
Saturday evening for the auc-
tioning of our beloved or
cussed pigs that have
adorned the city.
First of all there were many
skeptics and critics who won-
dered why in heaven's name
did a group of highly interest-
ed and maybe even intelli-
gent Venetians select pigs to
adorn our wonderful city. The
most 'practical answer was
that they would not have to
make a new mold because
pigs had been done else-

where.
But certainly there had to
be molds for something bet-
ter. Why not sharks or mana-
tees? Nonetheless, the com-
mittee w'ent forward and
decided pigs would be fun,
and it was for the Venice Art
Center where they use lots of
PIGment. Ouch!
This committee was filled
with doers, people that know
how to get things done and
done well. Lynn and Paul
Moseley orchestrated the
whole pig event. They solicit-
ed my help in advertising,
and while I would have much
rather done something more
oriented to us, it seemed
crazy enough to be worth-
while.
The great emcee and
author of some pretty out
there ideas (that certifies him
to be a visionary) Don Hay,
felt that this project with all of
its various parts could raise
$100,000. Some people won-
dered if he was a little
touched.
There were many parties to
either kick off the event or
raise money. One of the com-
mittee's ideas was a
"Swinefest," a great dinner
and wine party at the Art
Center. That raised quite a bit.
The sponsors kicked in a
bunch. They included
Georgia and Mike Miller, as
usual doing good in Venice;
Colonial Bank thanks to Tish
Scott's urging and AG
Edwards, John Holec. Then
the committee sold 37 pigs at
$2,500 each, no small feat.
The master pig herder
Bonnie Kaiser got them all
placed so they could be
enjoyed by all. That included
some great help from Electro
Bake who put coats of clear
coat on them so they could
bask in the sun without crack-
ing and peeling. White


Cement chipped in the 800-
.pound bases that made the
critters stay put.
,The artists did an incredi-
ble job and showed what
great talent we have in this
community. It is wonderful
that we have the Art Center
that attracts so many talented
people.
There were other smaller
events, including a PIGnic
where Gold Rush BBQ was
sold in a MainStreet Thursday
night stroll. But the grand
daddy event was to be the
auction. The committee,
which I was a member of, was
nervous that not all of the pigs
would sell. They got very cre-
ative "hitrd"f tiofgh 'Micelle'
Lamond, the talented Web
masteress, they got a Web
auction site up and running.
That brought in some bids
on pigs, but it looked like only
a dozen were going to get any
action. Holy Pig! What to do,
we wondered. The word from
shop owners was they would
like the pigs to stay, but they
wouldn't be bid on if they
couldn't be kept on display.
Lynn Moseley. went to city
council to get a year's exten-
sion in hopes that would
encourage bidding and keep
these curiosity landmarks
around longer.
Last Saturday was the big
night. People were on edge in
hopes we could sell most of
the pigs because the thought
of what to do with leftover
pigs was not pleasant. The
event was at the Yacht Club
where they displayed all the
pigs (except the Sharky's pig
that they couldn't get off the
pole). A wonderful night of
music, great food and the
auction of the beloved pigs.
The committee had come up
with the idea to put them in a
silent auction and unless they
got to $1,000 they would go
that way, none less than $500.
To almost everyone's sur-
prise all but four of the pigs
garnered the minimum
$1,000, so 33 pigs went to live
auction the others also sold.
There were many bidders
from around the country
involved, although in the end
only one of the phone bidders
bought a pig. However, many
others had traveled a distance
to be involved in the live auc-
tion.
NeilVanDeRee did the auc-
tioning well by keeping it
moving. It was evident pretty
early that we were going to be
pleasantly surprised as the
early pigs were going for
$2,000 or more.
The bidding on some got
pretty frantic, especially on
Elvis Pigsley who fetched the
most at $7,700. Ten pigs sold
for $4,000 or more. The next
nine were Lula Belle $5,300,
Mr. Piggins $5,200, Miss Pig-
Me Date $5,200, Patriotic Pig

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Fly the flag to remember mom today


Editor:
There is always a day that everyone wants to remember in
their lives. The most important is the second Sunday in May
each year.
It is Mother's Day, which was proclaimed by President
WoodrowWilson in 1914 on May 8 in a joint resolution desig-
nating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day and direct-
ing us "to display the United States flag at their homes or other
suitable places as a public expression of our love and reverence
for the mothers of our country."
Mother's Day dates back to the ancient Romans and made
its way to the United States in the early 1900s. It has become
the most popular day of the year to dine out, and telephone
lines record their highest traffic.
Remember mother and display the flag, showing respect to
the one who brought you into this world of ours.

Puts no trust in
oil companies
Editor:
I read about more breaks
for oil companies. The letter
told how the oil that comes
from Alaska's pipeline now
was supposed to be used to
shore up supplies for us, the
United States of America, but
was sold to Japan because of
"poor quality." Surprise, sur-
prise! Japan uses it just fine
and the oil companies are
richer, but what of us?
Now, they want to extract
more oil with a new oil
pipeline and guess what? Do
you think it will be for us if
another country offers a high-
er amount of money? Can we
believe them? I don't think I
can. The United States will
probably lose out again and
the refuge in Alaska will be
destroyed.
Be against the oil compa-
nies going into Alaska. Leave
it pristine for nature, the ani-
mals and environment.
All of our parks are sup-
posed to remain pristine and


natural f6r the environment,
not be destroyed.

High school bands
cause for hope, pride
Editor:
The Florida Bandmasters
Association held its music
performance assessment of
South Florida's high school
bands at North Port High
School from April 18 to the 22.
What an encouraging and
'positive experience it was to
watch the young adults,
dressed in tuxedos and long
black dresses, perform with
grace and vigor and also with
incredible talent knowing
they were being judged.
The performances were
open to the public with no
admission charge every day
of the week. Unfortunately,
there were just a handful of
citizens enjoying the music,
the mannerisms and talent of
these young adults. We are


sorry that more people either
did not know about the pre-
sentation or did not attend for
other reasons.
The promise of these
young musicians gave us a
refresher in hope as well as
pride in their ability and
future endeavors.

Vets should bear
part of cost of care
Editor:
I write regarding President
Bush and veterans' prescrip-
tion costs.
The Department of
Veterans Affairs' (Veterans
Administration) was founded
in the 1930s to care for the
veteran who became sick or
disabled during service to the
United States. Good old
Clinton and his Congress
buddies opened up the entire
system to care for any person
who served.
This in itself is not that bad,
as some really need the help,
although it sure puts a strain
on the entire medical budget,
facilities and employees.
To recoup some of the costs
involved, for those veterans
that are rated at less than a
total of 50 percent service
connected for their maladies
and are being treated for non-
service connected conditions
(conditions that arise from
civilian life or that are age
related and not attributable
to military service), the
department has instituted a
surcharge for medical treat-
ment and a surcharge to have
a prescription filled at VA
expense.


The surcharge is currently
set at $7 per 30-day supply of
a prescribed medication or
OTC drug. The VA wants to
raise that to $15 per 30-day
supply. I know there must be
thousands of American citi-
zens who would love to have
this benefit at even two or
three times this modest cost.
Prior to my father's death,
his monthly meds cost
upward of $750 a month, but
this was prior to the open-
door policy of the current VA.

Envision Venice
process flawed
Editor:
After reading Bob Vedder's
and Herb Levine's columns
about the Envision Venice
brouhaha, I would like to
comment.
At each of the three meet-
ings I attended, Kathie
Ebaugh and John Osmulski
promoted growth. At two
meetings the facilitator was
also the organizer.
At all of the meetings, lots
of time was spent with "infor-
mational" multiple-choice
questions, self-congratulato-
ry pronouncements and
other fluff designed to use up
valuable discussion time.
Worst of all, there were far
too many difficult questions
with subcomponents to
answer in the short time allot-
ted. The organizers constant-
ly circulated, urging us to
hurry, hurry, hurry.
What bothered me the
most was the scope, large

A plan for perusing the paper


Perfect. This is to all the old-timers upset about the paper
going from two to three days a week: Get a life. First, you say,
listen to the readers, go back to the two-day schedule. You're
wrong. Most people I talk to love the paper three days a week,
onWednesday, Friday and Sunday. There's no need to fix some-
thing that's not broken three days a week is perfect. Another
thing, you sound like this is a life-changing event for you,
polling your friends, etc. What a sad life you must have. It's a
newspaper, people. Here's a working schedule for you: Read
Wednesday's paper on Wednesdays; save the Friday paper for
Saturday; and read Sunday's paper sometime between Sunday
and Tuesday, before the Wednesday paper comes. The com-
ments you leave on the Let'em Have It line are so petty, what do
you do when you bum the toast or forget to fill up your gas
tank? These old people are not happyif there's nothing to com-
plain about.


Dead horse. Your inquiry
about stormwater drains is
interesting. About 10 years ago
the city fouled up the stormwa-
ter system in the 900 block of
Cockrill Street. After sending
pictures of the problem to both
Public Works and Engineering
and making comments to the
Gondolier Sun, all that hap-
pened was a new stormwater
tax added to all the other taxes
collected by the city. What's that
about paying for a dead horse?
Looks bad. The title would
be, Trees or human concern?
The unfortunate problem of
paying for repairs to the Union
Missionary Baptist Church
after the city allowed it to be
flooded with sewage is a reflec-
tion on cityemployee responsi-
bility. The city should charge
those responsible in some way
It's a reflection on the value our
city places on the residents,
especially when it pays $4,500
per tree for palm trees along
Business 41 but no money to
compensate the church or for
repairs to damage created by
city workers who allowed
sewage to flood the church.
This news must make a good
view of our city government to
surrounding communities and
around the country.
Too high. I was in St.
Petersburg and regular gas was

parking garage. The parking

because it was such an ugly
eyesore. So be careful what you
wish for.
Gas plan. I have two bril-
liant ideas on how to bring
down the price of gasoline.
One, get a law passed restrict-
ing each family to one vehicle.
All those other gas-guzzlers
are just used for shopping,
soccer games, dates and beer
runs anyway. Get rid of them.
Let those other family mem-
bers use skateboards and
bicycles; they need the exer-
cise because everybody is too
fat. Less cars means less gaso-
line demand, which means
lower prices. Second, close off
the right lanes on four-lane
roads and highways. Nobody
uses them. People will be so
ticked off with the lines of traf-
fic in the left lanes, they'll sell
their vehicles and resort to the
'skateboards and bicycles
mentioned above. Gas prices
will come down. Another ben-
efit will be less gas tax because
road maintenance will be cut
in half. I"m really surprised
that our politicians have not
thought up my brilliant ideas
by now.

$4,400, When Pigs Fly $4,200,
Chef Pigatoni $4,100 and
Town Squeeler $4,000.
In all, the pigs garnered
more than $100,000 and went
to people from all over for lots
of uses. Many will be next to
swimming pools, some in
businesses, some back out on
the street. One pig got paid for
twice making two people
think they owned the same
one.
All and all, it was pretty.
flawless but told us one
important thing the pigs
were loved by an awful lot of
people. One gentleman
bought six pigs. He is going to
use them at a children's camp
so I was told. I imagine you
will see a couple on eBay.
The thought theywould all
go back on display just didn't
work out as they were way
more popular than expected.
The art center raised close to
$200,000 on all aspects of this
event. I imagine it will help
pay for the new additions to
their beautiful center, they
added on this year. It was a
great community project, if
you didn't like it at least it was
a part of your discussion.

Ernie Nichols brought me an
article about Moose art like our
pigs in Bennington Vermont.
These things were huge. This


was run by the Chamber of
Commerce, and they sold 57 of
these to raise money for educa-
tion and the arts.

not too long from now will be

That is where a pair of ospreys
tried to build a nest on top of

number and sheer difficulty
of some of the questions, all
to be answered in a very short
period of time.
It was obvious we were to
be dazzled and overwhelmed,
thus leaving "solutions" to
these difficult questions to
the "experts": the planning
commission and the city. The
whole experience was very
disappointing.
Finally, why only one site
to register our priorities? I
suggest other sites, such as
Venice City Hall, where ques-
tionnaires could be held over


a week or so, allowing people
to vote other than from 6-8
p.m. on only one evening.
Everyone should be urged
to fill out the forms. Print
them in the Gondolier Sun!
One need not have attended
the EV meetings to voice an
opinion on future city priori-
ties.
I spent 23 years in textbook

conducted our workshops in
this manner, we wouldn't
have gotten very far!

Our libraries are a pretty
busy place. For instance just
in January the,folks at the
Fran Bourne, Jacaranda
Library answered 8,012 refer-
ence questions, place 1,700
items on reserve, and gave
3,879 people computer assis-

attended by 900 people.

Baseball and softball con-
tinue to win. The girls won'
their first regional game and
will play at home at 7 p.m.
Tuesday, as will the boys, who
won their district, at 7:30 p.m.

Things are hopping, or
should I say cruising, down-
town next Saturday. The third
annual Bike race will be
downtown at the same time,
there is a big sidewalk sale.
That is a lot of excitement in
the same place.
The next day, Sunday, May
15, there is a wonderful
evening of dancing, great
food and entertainment, at
the Venice Train Depot.
Tickets are only $50 and all
proceeds go to MainStreet to

grass. We have been seeing a lot of weeks with dry weather and the grass is
having problems with the lack of water so one of the things you can do
now is to spray for the weeds in your lawn, and use pre-emergence for
crabgrass. I *
heaproducts for spraying are Atrazine ndHe O used to make the
grass. Remember not to spray in the heat of the day with any chemical.
Usually early morning or late afternoon. If you are spraying weeds in
Bahia, mix with a surfactant to make the product work better. Make sure
that your lawn is watered well the day before so it will not be
under stress when sprayed. Remember to be very careful
when spraying when it is so hot, because you can burn your
lawn. Just spot spray at this time.
You should use a premergence on your lawn 4 times a year to
keep the weed seeds from germinating. If you do not, the WINNER
winds will spread the weed seeds very rapidly. This product
is called Crabgrass Control by Hi-Yield.
& d If you have any questions come in to DUKE GARDEN
CENTER and talk to us and we will do or best to help you
with your problem.

Bad intersection adds to its dangerous legacy


Yet another accident at 'Killer Korner' fortu-
nately, with only minor injuries further
strengthens the case for improved traffic control


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Last week, less than 16
hours after another con-
frontation between residents
of Osprey and Sarasota
County traffic planners over
the failure to reduce acci-
dents at the notorious "Killer
Korner," the toll of accident
victims at the dangerous
intersection rose by two.
A three-vehicle crash at
Old Venice and Blackburn
Point roads and U.S. 41 sent
two women to hospitals in
Venice and Sarasota with
minor injuries. Two of the
three vehicles were total loss-
es. The third will require
about $4,000 to repair,
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.


An 82-year-old woman
from Iowa, Jeanne Cole, who
was driving a 1997 Plymouth,
was treated in Venice for
minor injuries. Her car was
totaled. Donna Jones, driving
a 2002 Jeep, also suffered
minor injuries, and her car
was totaled. She was taken to
Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Roger Hewitt, also of Sara-
sota, driving a 2002 Dodge
Caravan, was not injured. But
according to the Highway
Patrol, it will cost $4,000 to
repair his car.
Traffic on'U.S. 41 was tied.
up for almost 90 minutes
after the accident at 8:27 a.m.
It was caused when Cole, dri-
ving north, turned left on a
green light into Blackburn
Point Road. She was struck by
Hewitt's van, traveling south


This photo was taken about 50 minutes after the accident on
Tuesday, April 26, at the intersection of Blackburn Point and
Old Venice roads and U.S. 41. A sign above the intersection
(barely readable) reads "Left turn yields to cars moving west."
The view is from Blackburn Point Road, looking west.

A wrecker, called to the scene of the three damaged vehicles, hauls away a red 2002 Jeep, which was totaled. To the right is a


1997 Plymouth, also totaled.
on a green light. Cole's vehicle
spun around on impact, and
was struck by Jones' car,
which was moving east on
Blackburn Point Road. The
Cole vehicle turned over.
Just the day before the
accident, Sage Kamiya, trans-
portation planning manager
of county Public Works
Department, appeared for
the second time in two
months before the Osprey
Revitalization Committee to
review improvements plan-
ned for U.S. 41 as part of a
road access management
program. On each occasion,
vocal residents at the meeting
demanded to know when the
dangerous intersection was
going to be corrected.
Two persons were killed


last year in a two-car collision
at the intersection. A study by
the county Office of Traffid
and Engineering in 2004
revealed that 165 crashes
involving 344 vehicles had
occurred on U.S. 41 from the
intersection north to Bay
Street, a distance of about 1
mile.
Kamiya told the commit-
tee the promised improve-
ments remained on schedule.
He said he expects construc-
tion of light poles and turn
signals to begin in August,
and be completed in October
of 2005. Options for drivers
on Blackburn Point Road who
wish to turn north (left) onto
U.S. 41 are to be established.
Vehicles on Old Venice Road
moving west will be able to


turn left (south) also onto the
highway when the project is
completed.
Residents sense' the
urgency of the matter: the
opening of the Wal-Mart
SuperCenter 3/4-mile north
on U.S. 41, scheduled for
mid-August, will add. to the
traffic flow entering the inter-
section.
No turn signals of any type
currently exist. Drivers must
depend on their own vigi-
lance and the courtesy of oth-
ers when approaching the
intersection from all sides.
An overhead sign cautions
those moving east on
Blackburn Point Road who
wish to turn left onto the
highway to yield to vehicles
going west from Old Venice


Road. Last week's three-way
collision suggests that the
admonition is not always
observed.
Joseph A. Barbetta, a
member of the county plan-
ning commission and a for-
mer Osprey resident, said,
"It's always bothered me that
the county says it can't do
anything about this problem
because the State Depart-
ment of Transportation has
jurisdiction over U.S. 41.
"FDOT," he added, "claims
it's a county function. If this is
true, this is very disturbing.,
For three years, this is all
we've heard. And for three
years, a lot of people have
been injured and a lot of cars
have been damaged at this
intersection."

Council members will
vote on giving marine
patrol police officers
more power as well as
endorsing Intracoastal
Waterway speed limits.

BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice Marine Patrol
Officer Phil Phillips may final-
ly be empowered to fine, tow
and remove derelict vessels
out of the city's small harbor.
And it's 'only taken more
than a decade of discussion.
City council members will
hear the first reading Tuesday
of a new ordinance that regu-
lates boating activities within
city limits. The regular coun-
cil meeting starts at 1:30 p.m.
in council chambers ofVenice
City Hall.
Tuesday's proposal stems
from a February workshop at
which council members
heard Phillips, Venice' Police
Chief Jim Hanks, City
Attorney Bob Anderson and
concerned residents discuss
aspects of heeded ordi-
nances.
Staff was given up to three
months to bring back a pro-
posal.
"This is pretty consistent
with (the February draft pro-
posal)," City Manager Marty
Black said Friday. "Our
marine patrol officer and
Chief Hanks have said they
really need these tools to keep
the boating community safe."
The new city ordinance
will not be the only boating
issue before council. Mike
Solum of Sarasota County
Natural Resources will lead a
presentation on speed limits
for boats using the Intra-
coastal Waterway.
Country officials are seek-
ing city support of the law
restricting boats to idle speed
and no wake zones around
the Hatchett Creek, 'Venice
AvenUe and Circus bridges
and the public boat ramp by
the Venice Train Depot.
Discussion of creating this
ordinance has been going on
since November 2001.
During that time, the
county actually posted no-
wake zone signs in these
areas even though no laws
enforcing the speed limits
were on ithe books.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission will be the agency to
finally approve this ordi-
nance, but it requests written.
support from both the county
and city.
"The limits seem pretty'
reasonable." Black said.


As forVenice's new boating
regulations, here are some of
the highlights of what will be
voted on Tuesday:
Trash/debris Would be
illegal to "place, discharge or
deposit" or allow any
"sewage, trash, garbage, pe-
troleumt products" into navi-
gable waters, banks or shore-
lines.
Muffling devices All
engines would have to have
an operational muffler.
o Live-aboards Would be
prohibited, except where a
private dock or marina facili-
ty specifically authorizes it. A


violation occurs after a period
of 72 hours.
Public anchorage --
Except where designated by
city, boaters would be prohib-
ited from accumulating 72
hours worth within any 30-
day period.Violation subjects
a vessel to impoundment.
Unsightly boats Vessels
of "unsightly appearance or
in badly deteriorated condi-
tion" would not be allowed to
dock within city limits. City
has the final determination of
this, and could require vessels
to be repaired or removed'.
Disabled vessels After


72 hours, would be removed
by the city at the owner's
expense.
Negligent operation -
No vessel or personal water-
craft could be operated in a
careless manner to endanger
the lives or property of any
person.
Speed Could not
exceed 7 mph within 50 feet
of any dock, pier, sea wall or
shoreline.
Other agenda
Also on Ttiesday's city
council agenda:
Venice Little Theatre -


Council will vote on an agree-
ment to purchase three
parcels of land next to and
owned by the Venice Little
.Theatre, for $150,000. In
essence, this patch of land is
composed of the alley and
access off of Nokomis
Avenue, behind the theater,
and leading back to where the
old Dairy Queen used to be.
This will provide additional
access to the new trailhead
for Venetian Waterway Park
and to Foundation Park, 100
Tampa Ave.

Happy

Mother's Day

Proud mom Gayle Heskett
beams when she talks about
her daughter, Johanna Finch-
er. The young woman, who
performed recently with the
Venice Symphony, is on her
way to Bulgaria this summer.
She will be singing at the
International Music Festival
with the International Chorus
under the direction of former
Suncoast Chorale Director,
Doug Renfro.
Talk about a long run
"I Do, I Do" recentlyplayed
at the Venice Little Theatre.
Janet Weis told me in Chan-
hassen, Minn., the show ran
for 22years from 1971 to 1993
with 7,000 performances. Da-
vid Anders and Susan Goep-
pinger performed the entire
run.
Around town
The president elect of the
Sertoma Club of Venice, Bob
Andersonm is, ready to take
over the job as president from
Jim Clinch, who will now
have more time to work on his
show business career. The
club raises thousands of dol-
lars for the Senoma Speech
Clinic of Venice run by David
Ursel. May is National Better
Hearing and Speech Month.
Venice NlainStreet wel-
comes Tom Opsut as their
new director. One of Tom's
goals is to extend the down-
town Venice Avenue ambi-
ance over the bridge and
along the road to Bogey's.
When this happens, I wonder
if MainStreet will change the
name of the Third Thursday
Stroll to the Third Thursday
Hike.
SumarJarrah presented an
interesting talk at the Venice
Public Library about her new
book, "Arab Voices Speak to
American Hearts." This young
woman is a journalist who
traveled to Lebanon, Jordan
and Egypt to do her research.
She teaches at the University
of South Florida. Purchase her
book- online at samarjarrah
.com.
Barbara and John Free-
rman just returned from a trip
to the land of windmills and
tulips, Holland, which includ-
ed a river cruise and three
days in Brussels, Belgium.
If you are traveling to Eur-
ope soon, Barbara told me
lime green is not just hot in
the USA. It is also a favorite in
Europe.
Happy birthday
Venice High School alum
Tracy Sellitti celebrated her
milestone 21st recently. Mom
and dad Carl and Mary Sellitti
traveled to Orlando to help
Tracy toast her special day.
Tracy attends the University
of Central Florida.
Vee Garry Chiulli is cele-
brating her May birthday in
the Holy Land. Vee, her hus-
band, Larry, Bishop John
Nevins and about 27 mem-
bers of the Knights of the Holy
Sepulcher are making the pil-
grimage together.
Pat on the quack
There is a mother duck in
Washington, D.C., who made
her nest and laid her eggs in
front of the Treasury Building.
I saw the story onTV
This terrific creature re-
minds us how seriously most
mothers take their roles. She
shows us that mothers can
make a nice home for their
children no matter what.

Mother puffers do no favors for newborns


STAFF REPORT


One of the greatest gifts a
mother-to-be or new mom
can give to her child is to quit
smoking.
Rumor is that even Britney
Spears gave up cigarettes
when she learned she was
pregnant. Like Britney, many
women are able to quit smok-
ing during their pregnancy.
However, the majority of
them return to smoking
shortly after they give birth.
They are often unaware that
exposing their infant to sec-
ond-hand smoke can be just
as harmful as smoking while
pregnant.
Now the National Cancer
Institute is sponsoring the
"Forever Free for Baby and
Me" program to help women
stay smoke-free during and
after their pregnancy. The
program, conducted as part
of a research study through
the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer
Center & Research Institute in
Tampa, Fla., is offering to mail
pregnant women who quit
smoking information to help
to them stay smoke-free for
good.
"The word has gotten out
that smoking during preg-
nancy is harmful to the un-
born child. Consequently,
more women than ever have
quit smoking during their
pregnancy," says Dr. Tom
Brandon, director of the To-
bacco Research and Interven-
tion Program at Moffitt Can-
cer Center. "Unfortunately,
the public health community
has not yet succeeded in
spreading the word about the
dangers of exposing a new-
born to secondhand smoke."
It increases the child's risk of
Sudden Infant Death Syn-
drome (SIDS), asthma, colic,

WORDS WORTH
HEARING
im ,i *.. **S iiiimM iim... -. .


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. For the past 5 years I
have protected myself from
loud noises yet my hearing
continues to decline. Can
you suggest anything which
will reduce or stop my
continued hearing loss?
A. Most causes of hearing
loss are never known.
Medications and diseases
associated with small vessel
disease are the major
concerns. Arthritis, diabetes,
and heart disease are all
associated with a higher
incidence of hearing loss.
Smoking, which creates free
radicals, has been associated
with increasing the
probability of hearing loss.
Anti-oxidants, such as
vitamin E have been
associated with the
prevention of noise induced
hearing loss. Unfortunately,
even if you live healthy and
take all precautions possible,
the majority of us will 'slowly
develop hearing loss. The
inner ear hair cells do not
replace themselves and once
they are lost, their function
cannot be recovered. This is
why an ', annual hearing
examination by a certified
Audiologist should be part of
every persons health plan.
Call the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Center at 492-4327
today to schedule your
audiologic assessment.

pneumonia, middle ear in-
fections, hyperactivity and
many other avoidable health
problems. Such exposure
causes the deaths of an esti-
mated 5,600 babies per year
in the United States.
The Forever Free for Baby
and Me program is funded to
develop and test new materi-
als that inform women about
the importance of staying off
cigarettes throughout their
pregnancy and after their
child is born. Participants
receive informational book-
lets and are asked to com-
plete brief questionnaires to
help evaluate the program.
If you are pregnant and
have to quit smoking, and
want to give your baby- and
yourself- a Mother's Day gift
that will last a lifetime, con-
sider enrolling in the Forever
Free for Baby and Me pro-
gram. There is no charge.

been an increased awareness
about the harmful effects of a
pregnant woman's smoking
on her fetus.'
Smoking while pregnant
can cause: miscarriage, pre-
mature birth, lower birth
weight, brain damage and
birth defects.
Many women smokers
(between 25 and 50 percent)
quit smoking when they
become pregnant. Post-par-
tum relapse is common.
Unfortunately most
women (about 70' percent)
return to smoking shortly
after giving birth.
By exposing their child to
secondhand smoke, they are
placing their infants at in-
creased risk for Sudden Infant
Death Syndrome (SIDS), as-
thma, colic, pneumonia,
hyperactivity and many other
avoidable problems.
By returning to smoking
women are also putting their
own health in danger. Women
who begin smoking, again
have lost an opportunity to
improve their own health and
to extend their own life
expectancy so that they may
live to see their infant grow
up.
In 2001, the National Can-


cer Institute awarded Moffitt
the status of a Compre-
hensive Cancer Center in
recognition of its excellence
in research and contributions
to clinical trials, prevention
and cancer control. Addition-
ally, Moffitt is a member of
the National Comprehensive
Cancer Network, a presti-
gious alliance of the country's
leading cancer centers, and is
listed in the U.S. News &
World Report as one of the
top cancer hospitals in
America. Moffitt's sole mis-
sion is to contribute to the
prevention and cure of can-
cer.
The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer
Center & Research Institute
has made a lasting commit-
ment to the prevention and
cure of cancer, working tire-
lessly in the areas of patient
care, research and education
to advance one step further in
fighting this disease.
Since the first patient
admission in October 1986,
Moffitt physicians, scientists
and staff members have
worked together to establish
a tradition of excellence
offered in an atmosphere
characterized by kindness,
caring and hope.

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

"Mrs. Deupree, there's a
hippie on your front porch!"
Tom the mailman called
through the front screen
door. "Tom, that's not a hip-
pie, that's John!" I called back.
The mailman had known our
younger son, John, a serious
Eagle Scout-type of young
man, for about 15 years. He
probably didn't recognize
him underneath the long
hair and scraggly beard. John
may also have been dressed
in torn jeans and a shirt from
the Salvation Army. It was
probably a sunny day in
June 1973 and our son had
just graduated from college
before leaving to teach in
Japan. He had always dressed
very neatly. Before he went
to college he said, "I'll never
wear blue jeans!" My, how he
changed!
Most of us have some
relative from the baby boom-
er generation those born
between 1945 to 1960. I tend
to believe it was a minority


who grabbed the attention of
the news media by smoking
pot and selling flowers in the
San Francisco area. Tens of
thousands of young people of
that era, however, were not
part of that negative scene
and it is my belief that all of
them, whether they went to
California or not, wanted to
build a better world. I tend to
think the old clothes and the
disregard for money (that
sure changed later!) was a
rebellion against the greed
that they witnessed every-
where. They deeply believed
in, and sometimes demon-
strated for, a cleaner environ-
ment, the equality of races
and of women, and a world
without wars. I think they
started a movement that has
bettered our country. After
our son graduated from col-
lege, he said to me one day,
"Mom, there's enough of us
to change the world." Ten
years later I asked him if he
still felt that way, and his
answer was that he wasn't so
sure.
The son of my friend, Fran,
and his wife first carried out
their ideals by cleaning up
the banks of the Hudson
River. He later worked with
troubled children, and now
works with battered wives.
The son of Helen, another
friend, was a college graduate
when he joined the San

Bounty of travel


options for seniors


JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
My husband and I are both in
our late 50s and would like to
start doing some traveling
when we retire in a few years.
We have been looking into
some different travel groups
but are feeling a little over-
whelmed with all the options.
Can you recommend some
good travel companies that
cater to retirees on a budget?
Also, any travel discount tips
you could pass on would be
helpful too. Unsavvy
Travelers
Dear Unsavvy,
It's estimated that
Americans older than age 50
account for nearly 80 percent
of all leisure travel spending.
Retirees today travel more
often, go farther, and stay
longer than people in any
other age group. As a result,
they're offered an enormous
and sometimes confusing
array of travel options and
discounts to choose from.


Here are some tips that can
help.
Travel companies
. There are many travel
companies that cater their
business to the rapidly grow-
ing 50-plus population.
Depending on where you
want to go, what you want to
do and how much you want
to spend, there's a variety of
companies that can satisfy
your needs. Here are some
good ones to consider:
Elderhostel: This is a great
place to start. Elderhostel is
the world's largest education-
al travel organization for

Travel discounts
One of the advantages of
growing older these days is
the many discounts that are
available to seniors, especial-
ly in the area of travel. Some
discounts are available to you
as soon as you turn 50, while
others kick in when you turn
60, 62 or 65. A great resource
to help you cut through the
information overload and
find the best deals is the
2005-2006 travel guide called
"Unbelievably Good Deals
and Great Adventures That
You Absolutely Can't Get
Unless You're Over 50"
(McGraw-Hill, $14.95).
Written by travel writer Joan
Rattner Heilman, it provides
tons of information on the
many different trips, tours
and travel adventures avail-
able to people age 50 and
older. It also lists dozens of
discounts, perks and privi-
leges on things like airline
travel, hotels, rental cars,
buses and trains, cruises,
national and stale parks and
more. This book is available
online or in bookstores
nationwide.

great Web site that offers a list-

Complementary and
alternative medicine
Dear Savvy Senior,
My wife recently battled
breast cancer and the doctors
have her on Tamoxifen to help
prevent any recurrence. She's
taking the medicine but lately
she has been exploring a host of
what I consider to be offbeat
therapies that one of her friends
(also a cancer survivor) recom-
mended. All of this alternative
health stuff seems a little
strange for a traditionalist like
me. Maybe I'm just too old fash-

way to world peace is an

hosted students from many

worked with a group planning

Afghanistan believing it
would provide opportunities

He now is a leader in a differ-

ioned, but I was wondering if
you know of any place I can turn
to learn more. Conventional
Codger
Dear Conventional,
Don't be too quick to dis-
miss alternative medicines,
some of which have been
practiced for thousands of
years in many cultures. In
fact, it's estimated that in the
United States today, between
36 and 62 percent of adults
are using some form of,com--
plementary or alternative
medicine.
Alternative health
Complementary and alter-
native medicine (CAM) is a
varied assortment of medical
practices and products that
are not considered conven-
tional medicine. In other
words, they don't teach this
stuff in medical schools.
Some are strictly alternative,
which means they are prac-
ticed in place of conventional
medicine, but others are
complementary, meaning
they are practiced in addition
to traditional therapies and
treatments. The list of com-
plementary and alternative
medicines is long, and
includes things like acupunc-
ture, chiropractic care, hyp-
nosis, massage, herbs and
vitamins, and yoga, just to
name a few. It also includes
such techniques as biofeed-
back and energy healing.
Even prayer is considered a
form of alternative and com-
plementary medicine.

The National Center for
Complementary and
Alternative Medicine


(NCCAM) is the Federal
Government's lead agency on
scientific research of CAM.
NCCAM supports research to
determine if CAM therapies
work, whether they are effec-
tive and who might benefit
most from the use of specific
therapies. To learn more
about CAM start by talking
with your own doctor. Ask
them about the different
types of practices, how safe
and effective they are, and
how they may work with
existing treatments or med-
ications. Here are three other
resources to assist you:
NCCAM Clearinghouse:
They answer questions about
CAM, distribute free publica-
tions and provide informa-
tion on selecting comple-
mentary or alternative
providers. Visit nccam.nih.
gov, or call (888) 644-6226.
National Library bf
Medicine: The world's largest
medical library offers infor-
mation, resources and results
to scientific studies on CAM.
Visit nlm.nih.gov or call
(888) 346-3656.
National Pain Foundation:
Provides information on tra-
ditional and complementary
therapies for managing pain.
Visit painconnection.org.
Things to know
Safety: As with any type of
medical, complementary or
alternative treatment, always
remember to talk to your
doctor first. Sometimes mix-
ing natural CAM products
with existing medications
can have a negative effect.

Insurance: Find out if your
therapy will be covered by

by insurance or Medicare.
Locate: To locate a CAM
practitioner ask your health
care providers) or contact
your nearby hospital or med-
ical school and see if they
have a list of area CAM practi-

ral. Some regional medical
centers may have CAM cen-
ters or practitioners on staff.

Lately I've been feeling a little
forgetful and noticing some
funny tingling in my hands and
feet. I' thought it's just because
I'm getting old I'm 68 -, but a
friend was telling me that I
might be missing some vitamins
and minerals in my diet and sug-
gested I start taking vitamins. Is
she right, and if so, what kind
should I take? She also told me
that some vitamins have to be
taken with food and others
without. Can you tell me about
this? Tingling Terri,
Dear Tingling,
Your friend could be right.
Some of the problems people
often attribute to getting
older, like memory lapses,
joint pain, fatigue and tin-
gling in the hands and feet,
can often be helped, or even
prevented, if you make some
healthy adjustments to
accommodate the nutritional
needs of your changing body.
A healthy diet and a daily
multivitamin can go a long
way toward meeting your

daily vitamin and mineral
needs. But, in some cases,
multivitamins don't contain
enough of a certain vitamin
or mineral to meet the daily
requirement, so a supple-
ment is needed. Here's a run-
down of some of the vita-
mins and minerals you need
to know about. Also, before
you start taking new vita-
mins, be sure to talk to your
doctor. Some vitamin sup-
plements can interfere with
prescription medications,
while some popular medica-
tions can rob you of vital
minerals and vitamins.
Vitamin B-12: By age 50,
our bodies produce less
hydrochloric acid, which is
needed to digest food and
properly absorb key nutri-
ents, causing B- 12 deficiency,
which could lead to anemia
and damage to the nervous
system. In most cases, a mul-
tivitamin can take care of
this, but you can also beef up
your intake by eating meat.

vice president of marketing
and sales for Windstar Cruis-
es. "By creating a selection of
non-repetitive, back-to-back
cruises in the Mediterranean,
Greek Islands and the Carib-
bean, our guests now have
ample opportunities to create
longer vacation options on
Windstar."

brovnik, Croatia; and Bridge-

Flying in the face of airline uncertainty


BY CAROL PUCCI
GUEST WRITER


What happens if your air-
line goes out of business?
Chances are you ask your-
self this question each time
you read a headline about a
new bankruptcy filing, fare-
cutting strategies or an airline
foul-up that leaves thousands
stranded.
Low fares, high fuel costs
and competition from low-
cost carriers have created a
crisis that so far has forced
five U.S. airlines into Chapter
11 bankruptcy reorganiza-
tion.
The latest is Honolulu-
based Aloha Airlines. The oth-

ers are Hawaiian Airlines, US
Airways, United Airlines and
Indianapolis-based ATA Air-
lines.
All are continuing to oper-
ate as usual, but should their
reorganization plans fail to fly
with creditors, don't expect
much warning. Short of a
buyout by another airline, liq-
uidation under Chapter 7 is
the next step.
Many do succeed -
Hawaiian Airlines is about to
emerge from Chapter 11 for
the second time since 1993.
But those that don't Las
Vegas-based National Airlines
left passengers stranded at
the gates when it shut down
in December 2002 rarely

Among the major airlines,
US Airways is considered
most at risk, -followed by Unit-
ed.
"Should people be avoid-
ing them? Absolutely," says
Edward Hasbrouck, author of
the Practical Nomad, a how-
to book for travelers and the
"travel guru" for airtreks.com,
an online seller of around-
the-world tickets.
"Nobody should be buying
tickets on a bankrupt airline if
they have another choice."
Not everyone believes
things are quite so dire. Lots
of people are booking flights
on troubled airlines and
many continue to rack up fre-


quent-flier miles.
Best advice: Weigh the
odds. Look for alternatives
when you can, and take pre-"
cautions to protect yourself
just in case.
Federal 'law requires air-
lines flying to the same desti-
nations to honor the tickets of
bankrupt airlines for a $25 fee
each way but only on a
space-available or stand-by
basis, which might mean
waiting hours or days for a
flight.
A United Airlines liquida-
tion would have a big impact
in many markets. Consider
Seattle, which is a minor mar-

ket compared with Denver,
Chicago or Washington Dul-
les, for example.
United and United Express
operate 42 daily flights daily
between Seattle and 11 cities,
carrying 12 percent of Sea-
Tac passengers annually on
domestic routes and 7 per-
cent on flights to Tokyo and
Vancouver, B.C.
US Airways with just a 2
percent share of the Seattle
market and no international
service, operates four daily
flights, one to Charlotte, N.C.,
and three to Philadelphia.
Alaska Airlines would be
the most likely airline to re-
book United passengers since
Alaska flies to most of the
same destinations including
Chicago, Anchorage, San
Francisco and Los Angeles.
Northwest Airlines flies non-
stop to Tokyo. '
'Alaska has historically ac-
commodated passengers in
these kinds of situations,"
said spokeswoman Caroline
Boren. "Essentially, people
would present their tickets
and pay the $25 fee and if we
have space available, we'd
accommodate them on a
stand-by basis."
Complications could arise
if you're booked on a flight to
a destination where no other
airline flies more of an
issue in a small town or a hub
such as Charlotte, where US
Airways dominates, than in

fly the same routes.

weeks," says Hasbrouck who
believes the law"will provide no
protection to a lot of people."
Airlines likely would require
documented proof that you
have a ticket, not just an e-tick-
et confirmation number.
Most no longer issue paper
tickets or charge extra for
them. Hasbrouck advises ob-
taining a copy of the passen-
ger-receipt coupon for your
airline or travel agent. Boren
said Alaska would accept a
printout of an e-ticket receipt
as proof.
If you'd rather start all over
again and buy a new ticket,
then paying with a credit card
is your best shot at getting a
refund.
Federal law entitles you to
a refund if a business doesn't
deliver products or services,
provided you dispute the
charge within 60 days after re-
ceiving your first bill.
MasterCard and Visa ex-
tend that coverage to up to
120 days from the date the
service was to be rendered -
the date you were scheduled
to fly no matter when you
purchased your ticket or re-
ceived your bill. American Ex-
press has no similar written
policy, but considers such
disputes on a "case-by-case
basis," said spokeswoman
Christine Elliott.
The refund policies don't
apply if you switch your ticket
to another airline. And don't
. expect the airline to return
your money. Ticket holders
take their place behind a long
line of creditors in a Chapter 7
bankruptcy.
Travel insurance won't be of
much help. Policies that cover

default by a travel supplier such
as a cruise line, airline or tour
operator don't apply to busi-
nesses already in Chapter 11.
Most experts believe that
passengers should be pre-
pared to forfeit their miles if
their airline stops flying.
"You'll lose everything.
There's no doubt in my
mind," says Randy Petersen,
who tracks frequent-flier pro-
grams as CEO of InsideFlyer
magazine. But Petersen feels
there's no pressing reason to
panic about any of the air-
lines right now, including US
Airlines, which he thinks has
a chance of holding on a
while longer.
If you are uneasy, you have
options, he points out, in-
cluding booking award travel
on a partner airline (in US
Air's case, it's United), or
spending the miles in other
ways.
Airlines offer newspaper
and magazine subscriptions
in exchange for miles. Follow
the rule of thumb that each
mile is worth one to two
cents. Using 1,200 United
miles that might otherwise go
to waste to buy a 13-week
subscription to the Wall Street
Journal valued at $65 isn't a
baddeal.
A conversion tool at web
flyer.com shows all of the pos-
sibilities for exchanging miles
for free merchandise, hotel
rooms or switching them over
to an another airline's pro-
gram. For a $29 annual mem-
bership fee or $9.95 per trans-
action, Points.com lets you
transfer miles to another air-
line or buy gift certificates at
retailers.

My mom really is the best.
She looks great in that new

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


Solitude and

Silence in area

Parks
Squirrels and birds easily outnumber
people at Venezia Park in Venice, as they do
at most Venice parks on weekday mornings
and afternoons. The playground equipment
stands idle, becoming perches for the
occasional crow or blackbird.
Venezia Park's pentagonal layout is
bordered by Sorrento Street on the south-
east, Salerno Street on the northeast and
Venezia Park Street on the west.


"The first rule

to intelligent tinkering is to

save all the parks."
Dr. Paul Erlich
Stanford University biologist

PRAY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
Holy Spirit, You who make me
see everything and who show
me the way to reach my ideal;
You who give me the divine
gift to forgive and forget the
wrong that is done to me; and
You who are in all instances of
my life with me, I in this short
dialog want to thank You for
everything and confirm once
more that I never want to be
separated from You. No mat-
ter how great material desires
may be, I want to be with You
and my loved ones in your per-
petual glory. Thank You for
your love towards me and my
loved ones. Amen. Person
must pray this prayer 3 con-
secutive days without asking
his/her wish. After the 3rd
day, the wish will be granted
no matter how difficult it may
be. Promise to publish this dia-
log'as soon as the favor has
been granted. Also thanks to
the Father, Son, Blessed Moth-
er Mary, Sts. Joseph, jude,
and Martha and others.-FB.
