A resident claims
VRMC denied him

treatment because
it wasn't in "the
hospital's best
financial interest."
BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

SLocal resident David Ursel was
angry after reading this newspaper
May 11 and learning Venice City
Council members are worried
about endorsing Sarasota Memor-
ial Hospital's efforts to build a facil-
ity within city limits and cutting
into Venice Regional Medical
Center's business.
Just three months into his recov-
ery from a stroke, the 41-year-oldis
urging council members to sup-
port bringing in a publicly owned
hospital, Sarasota Memorial, after
dealing with VRMC, now privately
owned for the first time in its more
than 50-year history.
"mThat '(May 11 story) kind of got
me steamed," Ursel said in an
interview. "Here we are, paying tax-
payer money, and if (Sarasota
Memorial) was here, I would not
have gotten thrown out onto the
street. I would've had a place to go."
Too young
In a May 15 letter sent to City
Manager Marty Black, Ursel com-
pliments the emergency care he
received while at Venice hospital
during his February stroke.
It's the rehabilitation process he
takes issue with. Despite having
medical insurance VRMC accepts,
Ursel claims hospital officials told
his wife, Shari Valencic-Ursel, that
it "was not in the hospital's best
financial interest to accept me and
that it would be more profitable to
accept a Medicare or even
Medicaid patient.'"
Though she was unable to dis-
cuss specifics because of patient

Stroke turns rehabilitation speech therapist into a patient

STAFF WRITERS
S"I awoke to my husband cling-
ing to our bedpost and telling me,
in a strange and largely unintelligi-
ble voice, 'I think i had a stroke.' "
That was how Shari Valencic-
Ursel remembers the night in
February she watched her 41-year-
old husband, David Ursel, experi-
encing an ischemic stroke, which
left him partially and temporarily
paralyzed.
The Ursel family's story is one of
strength, hope and recovery, and
how a professional speech thera-
pist had to be taught how to talk
again.
Looking back to three months
ago, all Shari can remember are
those frantic moments spent trying
to get David to a hospital.
"David lay down next to our

An MRI later showed the block-

Emergency treatment showed
David would survive. The blockage
had already resolved itself by the
time the MRI was administered.
David's stroke appeared on the
MRI to be a quarter of the size of a
pinky fingernail. If the stroke had
happened just to the left or right of
where it did, he would not have
had his movement impaired.
A little up or down and it would

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
LEWIS SHARPE


At least 21 current and for-
mer employees at Venice
Presbyterian Church's day-
care center were granted
immunity from prosecution
before they told police they
witnessed teachers Joyce Gill
or Kari Harris "jacking" stu-
dents on numerous occa-
sions, reveal records released
Friday by the Venice Police
Department.
Even a maintenance work-
er delivering supplies to the
classroom said he witnessed
one of the teachers "jacking"
children on numerous
instances.
Attorney Richard Hersch,
representing the aides, made
the deal between witnesses
and the police department


back in November, files show.
Records also show the
church first conducted its
own internal investigation
into allegations of child
abuse, including the hiring of
attorneys and a private inves-
tigator, and the services of a
private company to conduct
child interviews.
Police reported numerous
instances where investigators
were denied information in a
timely manner by attorneys
for the church.
'Jacking'accusations
Harris admitted to jacking,
something she said she did
when she loses her temper.
But Gill denied ever partici-
pating in jacking, according
to Probable Cause Affidavits
based on interviews with
detectives.

LET'EM HAVE IT


One of the aides described
jacking as "picking up a child
under or behind the arms and
lifting them off the ground,
swinging their legs out and
slamming their butts on the
ground."
One victim interviewed by
Child Protection Team mem-
ber Dr. Katherine Keeley told,
her that Gill "took me by my
feet and threw me across the
room. She wouldn't let me
eat, and she hit me."
Upon reviewing the allega-
tions, Keeley told VPD in a
written statement, "There is
potential harm to a child if an
adult picks a child up under
the arms or behind the shoul-
ders, swings the child's legs
out and slams the child down
onto the floor."
Venice Police Department
filed 29 complaints in March
against two current and four
former employees of ECC for
the state attorney's office to
consider. The alleged abuse
happened between October
2002 and February 2003.

State's first


FEMA park


now empty

Nine months after opening,
the last of the homeless
hurricane victims living at
Venice location have packed
up and left.
BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Row after row of concrete slabs at
the former Stay-N-Play travel-trailer
park stand empty today quiet,
except for the sounds of an occa-
sional breeze or animal.
A person might find it hard to
believe this large patch of land on
the northern outskirts of Venice was
shelter to 210 homeless families
after Hurricane Charley last August.
Federal Emergency Management
Agency spokeswoman Bettina
Hutchings was there when the park
opened early a year ago. Thursday
was her first chance to see the near-
empty land where only a half dozen
camper-trailers remained.
"This is our goal, to see a nice,
clean, empty park," Hutchings said.
Moving forward
Despite the last homeless family
moving out of the Venice park
Friday, work for FEMA staff is not
over. There are still 10,786 homeless
families living in temporary shelters,
down from a high of more thann
16,000 last year after four hurricanes
rumbled across the state.
Many of these homeless families
are in parks staying in temporary
mobile homes or travel-trailers pur-
chased by FEMA. One of the largest
remaining concentrations is the Port
Charlotte Mobile Home Park, built
by FEMA, where more than 500 fam-
ilies are still living rent-free while
searching for new housing or wait-
ing for repairs to be finished on
existing homes.
Every month a FEMA counselor
meets with each family, asking about
how the housing search is progress-
ing and offering leads.
"It keeps them focused and mov-
ing forward," Hutchings said.

School's out for three



beloved area teachers


BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

People retire within Venice,
too.
A retirement party honor-
ing Don Burman, Kathy
LaMorte and Pam Monroe


was held Thursday afternoon
at in the cafeteria of Laurel
Nokomis School. Current and
former students were there to
honor their teachers.
The retiring three com-
bined have more than 118
years of experience.


Don Burman conducts the Laurel Nokomis School jazz ensem-
ble one last time.


"It's hard to believe the
years have gone by," Burman
said as he accepted a plaque.
"I love getting up in the morn-
ing and working with the staff.
I could've done this forever,
but it's time."
Because the school is
known for developing chil-
dren's talents, Burman is high-
ly regarded at the school and
has taught many young minds
scales and tunings over his 46
years as a music teacher.
He received Teacher of the
Year honors for 2005-06 from
the Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Club for his services to the
community and his expertise
in teaching youth music skills.
In honor of him the Laurel
Nokomis Jazz ensemble per-
formed.
The new music director
said Burman's final concert
was May 17, but as a final ges-
ture, he asked Burman to con-
duct the jazz band as they
played "In the Mood" for one
last performance.
Burman said that this par-
ticular jazz band was the only
one that could perform Glenn
Miller's classic swing tune.
Hard to replace
LaMorte has been a teacher
for 39 years, 32 years in
Sarasota County and seven
years in Illinois. She received
her bachelor's degree in ele-
mentary education from
Illinois State University and a
master's degree in education
from the University of South
Florida. She also is a a part-
time consultant and trainer
for USE Her work training and
consulting future teachers as
USF was also recognized.
"If you have as much fun
with your career as I have had
with mine, you can't ask for
anything more," LaMorte
said.

teacher at the school.
Resource teachers assist stu-
dents with exceptional stu-
dent education at the school.
Burman said she had tried to
leave a few years earlier to go
to another school, but he was
glad when she returned. She's


been in the district for 32
years teaching both special
education and regular class-
es.
Melody Deeds, assistant
principal at the school, said
Monroe is the most worldly
traveler she's ever met.


"She and her husband
travel every summer," Deeds
said. "That has been their
life: They travel and teach."
Her traveling has taken
Monroe crawling through a
tunnel in Vietnam; this sum-
mer she'll be traveling all
over the globe.
"It makes you wonder
what kind of experience she's
having while she's off
trekking and I'm here in the
office all summer," Deeds
said. "They just love to trav-
el."
"I can't believe it's been 30
years since I stepped onto a
Sarasota campus," Monroe
said. "This whole event
means so much to me."
Former students thanked
them publicly for being their
teachers and said their lives
have been changed for the
better because of them.
"All three of them are out-
standing educators," said
principal Nancy Dubin.
"They'll be 'very ha-d to
replace."

Sarasota FCATs continue strong showing


The state releases the mother of all FCAT results
- grades three to 10 scores on reading, math and
writing tests based on Sunshine State Standards.
Preliminary FCAT Science results show continued
gains.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota County
School District continued its
strong showing, according to
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test results
released Thursday, and FCAT
Science results released
Friday. Students in Sarasota
County continue to score
above average when com-
pared to the state overall in
' nearly every subject (reading,
math, writing, and science) at
nearly every grade level on
FCATs based on Sunshine
State Standards.
Despite the good showing,
elementary and middle
school scores this year
showed a general slide down-
ward, while high school
scores showed some im-
provement over last year's
scores.
A bright spot in district test
results was the county's fifth-
grade scores. The number of
fifth-graders who are per-
forming at grade level or
higher rose from 67 percent
last year in reading to 75 per-
cent this year; the number of
fifth-graders proficient in
math rose from 60 percent
last year to 66 percent.
Results flat
Most scores, however,
showed the percent of stu-
dents .performing at grade
level or higher increased or
decreased by 1 or 2 percent-
age points in various subject
areas and grade levels.
School Board President
Kathy Kleinlein characterized
,the district's performance as
. having plateaued.
"One of the hardest things
to do when you are already
doing well is to make the
same kinds of gains year after
year. These FCAT results
aren't bad, but they're not
great either. They're flat,"
Kleinlein said.
"We know we can do a lot
better. We're going to have to
step up how we change that,
and the speed at which we
change." ,
Sarasota County high


school scores in general
showed improvement over
last year. The percent of
ninth-grade students per-
forming at grade level or
higher in reading and math
increased (SSS writing isn't
tested in ninth grade). Tenth-
grade scores rose in math and
writing, but slid in reading.
Middle school scores were
a mixed bag. The number of
students considered profi-
cient in reading and math
declined in both grades six
and seven. Eighth-graders
held their own, showing no
change in reading, and jump-
ing 2 percentage points in
math.
Scores for elementary
school students, with the
exception of fifth-graders,
went down. The number of
third-graders considered pro-
ficient decreased 2 percent-
age points in reading but
remained level in math.
Fourth-graders decreased 2
percentage points in both
reading and math, but
increased 2 percentage points
in writing. Countywide, fifth-
graders showed marked
improvement in both reading
and math scores.
"Generally, our elementary
students are performing at a
high level," said Lori White,
associate superintendent.
"We are finally seeing some
very incremental increases at
the high school level in read-
ing. That's where we are most
concerned."

proficiency levels as students

tem, especially from sixth
grade to tenth. Nearly 75 per-
cent of elementary students
read at grade level, but that
percentage takes a sharp
decline in middle school, and
tumbles further in high
school.
By eighth grade, county
statistics show only 51 per-
cent of students are reading
at grade level.
By the tenth grade, only 39
percent of students in
Sarasota County are reading
at grade level, down from 50
percent in 2001.
The downward trend in
reading proficiency, despite a
statewide $90 million reading
initiative, mirrored a
statewide trend.
"The results show contin-
ued increases in the early
grades and a need for more
academic rigor in middle and
high school," said Governor
Jeb Bush in a press release.

John L. Winn on Friday
released FCAT Science scores
for students in grades five,
eight and 11. This year's aver-
age scores are higher than last
year. Each year, the average
science scores have increased
since the test was first intro-
duced in 2003.
Sarasota County schools
scored fourth-highest in the
state on elementary science
tests.
"We're pleased with our
science scores, particularly at
the elementary school level,"
White said. "We attribute
some of that higher perfor-
mance to the implementa-
tion of .science laboratories
provided in elementary
schools through a three-year
grant from the William Selby
Foundation."
Referendum dollars were
used to operate the science
labs.
"The district performed
relatively high when com-
pared with other districts,
and well above the state
mean score," White said.
This is the first year 11th-
graders took the test. The
prior two years, the high
school test was administered
in 10th grade.
The achievement of stu-
dents in fifth-grade science
has continued to increase,
jumping 11. points since the

2003.

Congested


Voting machine critics

insist on their receipts

No law requires a receipt voters can verify, but
the lack of one could make a recount in a close
election a questionable exercise.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


The view west from East Venice Avenue as cars wait for the bridge to reopen to traffic. Traffic often backs up all the way to
the U.S. 41 Bypass and is further complicated by drivers trying to worm their way in from side streets without having to
wait for the end of the line.

A segment of local voters
will remain unhappy with
Sarasota County's paperless
touch-screen voting ma-
chines until they can see tan-
gible evidence their ballots
have been accurately record-
ed by computers, and printed
copies are available for
recounts.
How many of these voters
shun public forums and hold
their frustration in check is
impossible to measure, but a
vocal handful continue to
gather and articulate their
concerns when various orga-
nizations provide them an
opportunity.
The Sarasota/Manatee
Chapter of Common Cause
hosted such a gathering earli-
er this Week at the Selby
Public Library in downtown
Sarasota, and a crowd of
about 50 filled an upstairs
conference room to quiz
Elections Supervisor Kathy
Dent.
"We held the meeting
because there is a paranoia
out there about these ma-
'chines," said Chapter Presi-
dent Mitchell Zavon. "Com-
mon Cause has worked to get
big money out of elections
since it was founded. It has
been a tough fight for the last
30 years."
Some of the big money is
for manufacturers such as
Elections Systems and Soft-
ware, which sold 1,615 paper-
less machines to Sarasota
County for $4.7 million in
2001. As has been reported,
they came without printers
that produce a paper ballot
copy for votes to review.
If they did, voters could
confirm their accuracy, then
hand the ballot copies over to
elections officials so they
could be secured in sealed
containers and available if a
recount is required. The ES&S
system precludes a true man-
ual recount.
Dent has steadfastly insist-
ed the ES&S machines can
produce a "paper trail" of
votes recorded on the
machines for recount pur-
poses, but concedes it is not a
ballot copy each voter can
scan for accuracy and turn
over to local elections officials
for safe storage.


"There is no such thing as a
perfect election," she said. "So
long as there are human
beings involved there never
will be. The state is not in con-
trol of what I do here. The fed-
eral government is not in con-
trol of what I do here. We test
every machine."
'Absolutely corruptible'
When asked why she rec-
ommended paperless touch-
screen machines to Sarasota
County in 2001 after Manatee
County bought optical scan-
ners that produce a paper
ballot printout in 1997, Dent
said the ES&S equipment was
more advanced and capable
of being upgraded.
"I made the decision based
on what I thought was the
best equipment after looking
at three systems," she said.
"Our machines can be updat-
ed for the blind and visually
impaired before the next elec-
tion, and record ballots for
Spanish-speaking voters."
Rosemarie Myerson, a
Longboat Key resident who
has invested .hundreds of
hours comparing the Sara-
sota County and Manatee
County voting systems, in-
sists the ES&S machines are
more expensive to operate
and flawed because they can't
produce a paper ballot
receipt.
"These machines are
absolutely corruptible," she
said. "People who run elec-
tions with them should know
they can be audited. There
should be a capability, after
every election, to audit 10
percent of the paper ballots
and check for accuracy. Why
not change to optical scan-
ners?"
Even if the Sarasota
County commission agreed
with Myerson and wanted to
make such a change, it would
be hard pressed to trade in,
the ES&S machines when
they have been used for less
than half their shelf life, which:
Dent estimated was "about 10:
to 12 years."
Retrofit
It has been suggested that:
Sarasota County could retrofit
each of its 1,615 machines;
with printers that produce a
paper ballot copy for voters to:
review and elections officials:
to seal in boxes in the event a:
recount is required.

Siesta Key homeowners urge district renewal


The Casey Key Association says its main concern
is the conversion of motels into condos, not the
reopening of the Tiki Bar at the Casey Key Fish
House.


BY GERALD A, ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


The North Casey Key Con-
servation District created in
1970 by a special act of the
Florida Legislature, then abol-
ished by the same body 16
years later continues to
alarm residents of the barrier
island, prolong the zoning dis-
pute involving the Casey Key
Fish House on Blackburn
Point Road in Osprey and pose
problems for Sarasota County.
A letter sent last week to the
board of county commission-
ers by the Casey Key
Association implored it to act
to' preserve the district,
because "if the special act is
ignored or overruled, virtually
nothing will stop multifamily
and commercial development
on the key."


Richard Warner, a member
of the association, said that he
and his neighbors are con-
cerned about the motels on
the south end of the island.
"Those motels are on land
zoned for single-family resi-
dences. But they have violated
that zoning for years. As com-
mercial property, they're not
homesteaded," Warner said.
"Taxes go up, and the prospect
of selling out to a developer is
very welcome. We fear that
some condo developer will
put up high-rises on Casey
Key."
The 12th Circuit Court has
continued the Fish House's
appeal of a denial by the coun-
ty zoning board of appeals of
owner Jimmy Von Hubertz's
petition to reopen the Tild Bar
at the waterfront restaurant.
The denial, on a 3-3 vote of the


board, was based on the 1970
special act, which restricts
commercial businesses from
expanding, to "preserve the
natural beauty, marine, ani-
mal and bird life within the
district."
The act superseded the
commercial marine zoning
ordinance covering the Fish
House property under the
county's comprehensive
plan. After the appeals board
decision and before the court
took up the matter, Von
Hubertz's attorney discovered
that the special act had been
abolished in 1986. He was
able to obtain a delay to per-
mit negotiation with the
county to settle with Von
Hubertz, and avoid costly liti-
gation.
A legal opinion by the
county attorney's office, circu-
lated to the county commis-
sioners last month, concluded
that the county could pass an
ordinance that adopts some
parts of the legislative act that
created the district.


Greater protections
The Casey Key group de-
nies that its appeal is about the
Tiki Bar.
"This is a lot bigger than the
Tiki Bar," Warner said. '"A lot of
us on the key patronize the
restaurant. It adds to the
neighborhood."
But the association wants
assurance that the require-
ments of the special act are
either "fully in force as a state
law" or that its "key section is
embedded by county com-
mission action as part of
county building and zoning
ordinances," its letter said. It
was signed by Hank Tafaro,
president, and his fellow direc-
tors.
The zoning dispute was ini-
tiated in February 2004 when
a fire partially destroyed the
Fish House. Von Hubertz was
granted a temporary permit
by county Zoning
Administrator Mary Beth
Humphreys while repairs
were being made.
In the course of her investi-


gation of the property,
Humphreys discovered that
the Tiki Hut had been a stor-
age building, and that existing
permits allowed that use only.
Von Hubertz argued that his
property was exempted
because it had been operating
almost continuously as a
restaurant and a bait shop
since 1951.
He said earlier this week
that "the prior owner had sued
the county commissioners to
obtain commercial marine
zoning, and won. It had been
zoned open use conservation,
which made the building non-
conforming. I've owned the
place since 1999, and have
operated under restrictions
imposed by the county with
our first rezoning. As a conse-
quence, our environmental
protections are much greater
than those of the North Casey
Key Conservation District."
Confident
Under the temporary per-
mit, Von Hubertz had his


restaurant up and running 10
days after the fire. Substituting
the Tiki Bar for the burned-out
restaurant, and employing a
portable kitchen in the park-
ing area, he was able to serve
75 percent of the regular
menu.
But when it came time for
permits to reopen both build-
ings, the zoning board ques-
tioned the status of the Tiki
Bar as anything more than a
storage building. Heightened
scrutiny of the permits ques-
tion developed when some
residents of Casey Key and
nearby South Bay complained
about loud music coming
from the Tiki Bar at night.
"When the county hooked
us up to the sewer inf 1999,"
Von Hubertz recalled, "they
allowed the Fish House to
expand. Salty Dog, the previ-
ous owner, had a license for
16 seats in the restaurant. The
county granted me an
increase to 150, which is still
our total. So, we've never real-
ly expanded."


Rodriguez makes good on Habitat for Humanity promise


BY GERALD A, ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Henry Rodriguez's em-
brace of the urbanist village
approach to development -
professional offices, restau-
rants, boutiques and shop-
ping, all within walking dis-
tance of housing spilled
over into his gift of $100,000
to Habitat for Humanity.
When his project to devel-
op the Bay Street Shopping
Village and Town Center in
Osprey was approved by the
board of county commission-
ers in March, he pledged the
gift to the worldwide organi-
zation. It has, since 1976, built
more than 125,000 homes in
87 countries for people who
could not afford the dream of
home ownership.


The Venice branch of the
organization is finishing its
29th house. One hundred
forty-two have been built by
the Sarasota branch since
1986.
Churches, businesses,
civic organizations and foun-
dations have been the usual
sponsors of affordable hous-
ing built by Habitat for
Humanity. According to John
Schaub, in charge of develop-
ment for Sarasota, "I've never
heard of a developer making
such a large gift in cash. Other
developers have donated
land."
Rodriguez's gift helped to
begin two houses in a subdi-
vision on Lockwood Ridge
Road in Sarasota. The cost of
the 1,200-square-foot houses,
when finished with three


bedrooms and a bathroom,
will be about $70,000. Each is
designed for low mainte-
nance and operating costs.
The base price in Venice for a
similar model is about
$75,000.
Habitat for Humanity will
sell the houses to the owners
at cost, and finance a mort-
gage at zero interest for 20 to
25 years. Impact fees of about
$8,000, the same as for other
houses in Sarasota, will be
imposed on the two houses.
The new owners will be
expected to pay such costs
after putting down a required
deposit pn closing costs. They
will also be expected to work
500 hours to build the house
to earn "sweat equity" credit,
and pay $400 each month on
the mortgage


"If you read the newspa-
pers these days," said
Rodriguez, "it's obvious what
is happening in Sarasota
County: housing price infla-
tion is denying too many peo-
ple what we all cherish our
own home. And, at the same
time, the grind of getting to
work from locations where
housing may be less expen-
sive, is choking our roads with
long-distance drivers. The
paradise we all bought into is
disappearing in a cloud of
exhaust."
Housing, driving costs up
People seeking help from
Habitat for Humanity have
changed in recent years,
according to Lori Mitchell,
financial specialist with the
Sarasota branch.


"It's been dramatic,"
Mitchell said. "We're building
homes for two working par-
ents who can't find a home
they can afford. We frequently
encounter college graduates
in the same bind. They look
and look. But more affluent
buyers snap up houses even
before they're listed by real-
tors."
A study by the National
Association of Realtors
showed that the median price
of a home rose to $326,300 in
Sarasota in the first quarter of
this year. It rose by $197,800
in the Charlotte-North Port
area in .the same period.
Increases in both areas were
more than 30 percent.
For some people in the
county, the worst part is that
rising home prices make it


tougher to find affordable
housing near work. What this
means to Rodriguez and oth-
ers is that people are forced to
drive longer distances, .and
clog the roads in doing so.
Of the 1,650 employees of
PGT Industries, located at
Laurel Road and the 1-75
interchange in North Venice,
more than 900 have to drive
15 miles or more to get to
work, according to Linda
Gavit, vice -president for
human resources. They live in
Port Charlotte, North Port,
Arcadia, Placida, Rotunda
and Cape Haze.
Lynn Cassan is one of
more than 1,950 employees of
Sarasota Memorial Hospital

Rehab center search
Among many other things,
including caring for her two
daughters, Shari had to find a
rehabilitation program for her
husband. Because of David's age
and financial standing, he was
not able to find centers around
Venice that would accept him.
The married couple thought
they were well insured, but
things proved to be more diffi-
cult than they ever thought.
HealthSouth, a corporate
rehabilitation hospital in
Sarasota, turned down their
request because it didn't have a
contract with his insurance com-
pany, BlueCross & BlueShield.
Paying out-of-pocket wasn't an
option.
"You buy the best insurance
you can afford," Shari said. "Every
insurance coverage has caps."
In Venice, the VRMC transi-
tional care unit declined admis-
sion because it "was not in the
hospital's best financial interest,"
according to how Shari remem-
bers the conversation, even
though VRMC's transitional care
unit does accept David's insur-
ance provider.
According to the Ursels,
VRMC's TCU also only takes
patients who need short-term
rehabilitation. Since there are
certain prescriptive therapies for
older patients, Ursel was consid-
ered "specialized" care.
They began to think if they
were poor, or over 65, then they
could've gotten the care David
needed.
'All the places in Venice said I
was too young, and that was
when Shari called Pinebrook
and said it was me," David said.
Recovery road
Luckily, an admissions coor-
dinator at Pinebrook Nursing
and Rehabilitation Center
admitted David because he had
been a part-time employee there
for the past eight years, working..
with stroke patients and teach-
ing them how to talk again.


David Ursel, 41, shows his early attempts at writing his name and the names of his wife, Shari, and
daughter, Mariska, after having a stroke Feb. 20


Shari believes his connection
as an employee was the only rea-
son Pinebrook let him in.
"The silver lining is that I got
better care at Pinebrook," David
said.
David said the outpatient care
and service he received was top
notch there. Their daughter's soc-
cer field was even across the
street. His rehabilitation was
remarkably quick, but not with-
out demanding challenges. It
involved both physical and
speech therapies.
David's movement was limit-
ed: He was unable to even move
his arm when the process began.
In as little as two weeks, he had
control down to his finger joints
and was released from intensive
rehabilitation after 15 days.
Three months after his stroke,
David walks with a slight limp, his
speech is almost back to normal
and he has nearly complete con-
trol of his right arm. He couldn't
even pick up a tissue when reha-
bilitation started.
David also is back to work;
Pinebrook called him in to fill in
for their regular therapist who
was out sick.
- "And there was a very proud,
retired military man there, recov-
ering from a stroke, and he was


down, depressed," David said.
"Then he saw me there, and he
remembered me going through
what I did (as a patient). He was
very impressed that you can
recover, or at least make some
recovery from a stroke. ... That's
one good thing that's come out of
all this."
Family life
Meanwhile, life was extremely
full for Shari without her hus-
band at home. 'She has new-
found respect for single parents
because she became one in an
instant.
"It was very tiring with the
fatigue and emotional stress,"
Shari said. "The hardest thing
was separating the emotional
side from what had to be done at
home."
When she became the care-
giver, she became the last priori-
ty, but living in a town like Venice
proved to have its advantages.
The community helped out as
much as possible. -Food was
ever-present at their door and a
blue bracelet fund-raiser was
instituted by the Parent Teacher
Organization at Venice
Elementary School, of which
Shari is the president and where
she teaches.


"It was overwhelming," Shari
said. "Everything happened so
quick and under our noses, it's
impossible to thank everybody.
We never wanted to leaveVenice.
Now we never will."
Shari knew the entire com-
munity was behind her family
when she began seeing people
she didn't know wearing the
bracelets.
"We've always done every-
thing in Venice" Shari said. "Any
business we do we have Venice
companies first in mind."
Doctors identified what
caused the stroke: A strain of
protein found in David's blood
forced it to thicken and formed
a clot. Although this condition
was atypical because of David's
age and healthy lifestyle, it
could have happened to any-
body.
One other good thing came
out of this: David no longer takes
little things for granted.
"Going through this, it makes
you realize the challenges of but-
toning a shirt," David said. "You
go through all the effort of but-
toning a shirt with one hand,
then you realize you're off a but-
ton, and have to redo it. You
make sure you line up the but-
tons now."


VRMC from page 1 A
privacy laws, Hospital CEO Melody Trimble said
staff members have attempted to contact Ursel,
but have been unsuccessful.
Trimble could not confirm or deny if those
exact comments were made to Ursel's wife, but
she will "honor him and his perspective" as set in
the letter he sent to city hall.
"If it had been brought to my attention, or any-
one in my administrative team, we would've
worked with them to make sure they received the
appropriate medical care," Trimble said.
Ursel, a speech therapist at Sertoma Speech
Clinic for Children, had an even more difficult
time finding a rehabilitation center in Venice to
accept him, despite having BlueCross &
BlueShield health insurance.
The most common reason was: You're too
young.
"If I was 65 or older or had no insurance, there
would be no problem with my admission," Ursel
wrote. "How many of you are 65 or older or carry
no health insurance?"
Different focus
Sarasota Memorial has until July 2 to finalize a
land deal with North American Properties for 66
acres at Pinebrook and Laurel roads.
The campus would have medical office build-
ings, outpatient surgery and radiology services
within two years. Long-range goals have an 80-
160 bed inpatient hospital being applied for some
time after five years.
The city's existing hospital, VRMC, is Venice's
second-largest employer. Council members are
worried about losing its 312 patient beds if they
support Sarasota Memorial's efforts.
When contacted for comment on this story,
Sarasota Memorial Hospital declined to speak on
this specific instance.
"We do not believe it is appropriate to com-
ment on the care another hospital provides,"
SMH answered in a written statement. '"As the
community's public hospital, we work with all
people regardless of income and insurance sta-
tus to make sure they receive the most appro-
priate care in the most appropriate setting.
Sarasota Memorial is a community asset and is
committed to providing services other hospitals
are unwilling to provide."
Those comments seem to mirror those of
Trimble with VRMC, where both medical facilities
promise to provide or at least find the care a
patient requires.
But Ursel believes a public hospital would be
more focused on providing treatment than on
which medical services will make the most
money.
"I am writing this to you not to sway your opin-
ions about a public hospital coming to Venice, but
to share with you an aspect of care our younger
citizens of Venice face," Ursel wrote. "Hopefully,
this information will have an effect onyou since it
could be closer to home than you originally
.thought."

physician who fights disease in Haiti and other poor countries. It is this year's
selection for Sarasota County's annual One Book, One Community
celebration, co-sponsored by Sarasota County Libraries and the William G.
Selby and Marie Selby Foundation.
Free tickets for Kidder's appearances are available at all Sarasota County
Libraries and at Sarasota News & Books, 1341 Main St., Sarasota. Kidder
will speak at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 25 at Holley Hall in the
Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center, Sarasota; and at 2 p.m. Thursday,
May 26 at Church of the Nazarene, Venice. People with tickets will be seated

Public invited to test wireless Internet
access in downtown Sarasota
Now you can surf the Web and send e-mail while dining outdoors throughout
downtown Sarasota. Sarasota County government and 82 Degrees Tech, a
group accelerating the region's technology economy, invite the public to test an
expanded system providing no-fee wireless access to the Internet.
Dubbed "Downtown Unplugged," the system allows users with wireless-
capable laptop computers to access the Internet outdoors in the area from the
bay eastward to Washington Boulevard, and from Fruitville Road south to
Hudson Bayou. The system does not replace service inside homes and
businesses, but is intended to spin off a host of innovative economic
development opportunities while local governments gain efficiencies in their
field operations.
To use the network, use your wireless-capable computer to scan for
wireless networks in the downtown area. Select the network called
"unplugged" and click "connect." Launch your Internet browser, accept the
Unplugged user agreement and you'll arrive at the Downtown Unplugged web
page. To actively participate in expanding our community's technology
economy, send e-mail to 82tech@82degreestech.com.

"We have people who do
nothing but look for rental
resources, and then they go
and check it out and see ifit will
work for them," Hutchings
said.
Progress is slow. Even
though the Venice park now
stands empty, Hutchings could
not guarantee that every
homeless family it accommo-
dated is now in permanent
housing.
Some of them could have
been relocated to another
FEMA park closer to where
they originally lived, she said.
The park hosted a high of
210 homeless families and was
down to 110 by Jan. 26. FEMA
rented 350 spots, but never
used more than 210.
Of those 210 families, 68
have returned to permanent
housing, 132 are in some other
FEMA-assisted housing and
the whereabouts of 10 families
are uncertain, Hutchings said.
Travel-trailers continue to be
the home for 42 of the families,
and 90 of them are in FEMA-
owned mobile homes.
FEMA assistance for home-
less families runs out after 18
months. When that time peri-
od expires any families still
homeless vill have to begin
paying rent for their FEMA
location as the federal disaster
funding dries up.


ATA GLANCE
* The former Stay-N-Play RV
park on Knights Trail Road
was the first FEMA park to
open last year following
Hurricane Charley.
- On Friday, the last homeless
family had moved out of the
Venice site. The park hosted a
high of 210 homeless families
and was down to 110 by Jan.
26. FEMA rented 350 spots,
but never used more than
210.
- There are still 10,786 home-
less families living in tempo-
rary FEMA shelters, down
from a high of more than
16,000 after last year's hurri-
canes. Disaster assistance runs
out after 18 months, meaning
these families will have to
start paying rent if they still
haven't found a home in that
time.


"It is along time," Hutchings
said. "It is our hope, in that
time, they will have been able
to find something to meet their
needs."
Disaster mode
While most people
acknowledge the stress fami-
lies are under, many FEMA
workers also are ready for a
break.

FEMA spokeswoman Bettina Hutchings looks over Stay-N-Play
park in Venice on Thursday. This was the state's first homeless
family park following Hurricane Charley last year. At one time
: there were 210 families there, but the last family moved out
Friday and only a half dozen empty trailers remain.

What was supposed to be a
job for a month or two has
turned into nearly a year away
from home. She admits her eyes
are on the upcoming hurricane
season, which starts June 1, and
hopes relief efforts from the
2004 storms are complete
before another disaster strikes.
Beyond the humanitarian
drive, FEMA workers are doing
everything they can to find
homes for the homeless so they
can finally go home.
"I'm hoping to at least get a
month at home before you
know," said Hutchings, alluding
to the possibility of another dis-
aster. "If I had to go straight
back into disaster mode, it
would be difficult."

Indians rally late to tie Seminoles

BY CLAUDE LEWIS w
SPORTS EDITOR ..


The glass was half full and
half empty for Venice High
football faithful Saturday night
at Powell-Davis Stadium. ,
There were plenty of bright
spots, but then on the flip side,
some weaknesses were
exposed in a 28-28 tie with vis-
iting Southeast.
All told, the picture is a lot
brighter heading out of this
year's Spring Classic than it was
year ago following a loss to the
Seminoles in Bradenton.
In the 2004 game, Southeast
dominated 24-7, outgaining
Venice by a 2-1 margin.
The stats game was much
more even this time. The
Indians held a 355-314 edge in
total yardage and rallied from a
two touchdown deficit with
fourth quarter scoring drives.
The Indians also played
clean football, as they were only
penalized twice.
Southeast's talented junior
quarterback, Chris Hart, picked
apart the Venice pass defense
for 218 yards on 8-for-12 accu-
racy. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound
prospect also ran for 51 yards

BY MICHAEL LAMOND
CORRESPONDENT

Thp 2005 edition of the
Venice Indians ran onto
Powell Davis Field in Venice
Saturday night undefeated
and left that way as well. This
year's Indians team looks to
better than their 5-4 record
from last season, and they got
off on the right foot with a 28-
28 tie.
Now I know a tie isn't that
exciting, but the way Venice
did it was. Trailing 28-14 in
the fourth, quarter, the
Indians charged back and
scored the tying TD on a 7-
yard rollout by senior Matt
Wickwire with under a
minute to play.


But it was the extra point
that made it stand. During the
TD play, Venice was charged
with unsportsmanlike conduct
and the try had to be attempt-
ed from the 17-yard line, mak-
ing it a 35-yard PAT.
After seeing how disap-
pointing Venice's kicking game
was last year, this didn't look
good. But mighty Ben Shipps
stood tall and delivered the
score to leave the Indians feel-S
ing like winners.
Shipps looked good all night
in fact, even though there was
no live kicking in this scrim-
mage, having good distance on
his kickoffs as well.
While Shipps looked good;
there were others who stood
out as well. Tony Charles


turned in his usual steady per-
formance, Matt Wickwire,
mentioned earlier, had a solid
night executing the offense, but
there was a certain No. 44 who
caught my eye all night.
Matt Gouge, a 210-pound
linebacker, was everywhere I
looked. He made a spectacular
open field tackle in the first half
to stop one of Southeast's mer-
curial wideouts.
He also made an assortment
of good solid tackles and
always seemed to be around
the ball when he was in the.
game. I have no idea how many
plays he participated in, but the
kid is good player who should
see more time in the fall.
Football season's coming,
are you ready?


Many aspects of football were covered at the camp. Here a
youngster kicks off a tee.

SUNDAY. MAY 22. 2005


Writing this column ain't easy


Saturday, May 21, 7:32 a.m. I
wake up with to a banging
noise in my head. Hangover
you say? Reasonable thought
until I remember that I don't
drink. No, this is something
else entirely. I rise to find my
sons, ages 14 and 12 practicing
on their drums. After bitterly
scolding them by asking if they
would like doughnuts for
breakfast, I innocently travel
down to the 7-Eleven for my
morning coffee arid papers. I
return to find Deathknight and
Homediddy (their gaming
handles) deep in concentra-
tion over our computer. It
seems that they have found a
favorite old game -Diablo II
- and they are now demon
hunting saviors of humanity.
Now if you are or were par-
ents of children this age, you
know that the one thing more
precious than gold to a mom or
dad is silence. I was golden.
During the next three or four
hours, I reminded the kids that
dad still had a column to write
and soon their quest to save the
world would have to end. Well
it's now 12:47 p.m. and here we
are.


RALLY n. .


including a 9-yard TD run in
the third quarter that put the
Seminoles up 28-14.
Preparing for Southeast's
option in a spring game has
got to be an unenviable task.
Meanwhile, Venice coun-
tered with its ball-control
offense. The Indians ran 46
times compared to 20 ground
plays for the Seminoles.
Tony Charles bulled his
way to 134 yards on 16 car-
ries, while Alvin Mitchell got
the call 20 times for 88 yards.
Venice matched Southeast
blow for blow for much of the
first half. A 27-yard QB scram-
ble by Hart set up the
Seminoles first TD midway
through the firs quarter. Back
Adrian Jenkins ran it in from
three yards out. Venice tied it
at 7-7 when Mitchell's three-
yard TD run capped an eight
play, 82 yard drive.
Southeast went up 14-7
early in the second quarter
when Hart danced away from
tacklers and fired a 33-yard
bullet to Faron Homes. The
Indians tied it with 2:47 left
before halftime on a great
catch by Chris Hayes, who
reeled in a 26-yard loft by
quarterback Matt Wickwire.
Wickwire, who will be a,
senior, looked solid in com-
pleting 7 of 11 passes for 88
yards.
Southeast struck again just
before half, as Hart burned
the Indian secondary on
back-to-back plays covering
41 and 47 yards.

The ball sailed through the

Having talked to the pro

another tournament that same
weekend. I must say having
played this tournament in the
past that Calusa Lakes needs to
step up and give the players
something for their $90 (lunch,

RAY SINIBALDI
SPORTS COLUMNIST


Next week, theVenice High
baseball team will gather to
wrap up the 2005 baseball
season.
Its 14-14 record may, on
the surface, appear to leave
little to celebrate.
However, initial looks can
be deceiving. Some observa-
tions during the season from
these grizzled eyes.
This was a young baseball
team which had difficulty
finding its legs. Early on in the
season, they played back on
their heels and seemed to be
waiting for something bad to
happen. It usually did. As the
season progressed, signs of a
team identity began to
emerge and they played very
well in the post season as they
garnered yet another Indian
district title.
Their final game was a
well-played 3-2 loss to
Mariner, which is one of the
5A Final Four teams.
Here are some of the more

impressive things I witnessed
from this year's Indians.
Jason Stazewski. Asked to
do just about everything this
season, the quiet senior did
so and did it well. Going from
second base, to center field to
left field to the pitchers
mound and back again, the
kid simply did it all. His sea-
son culminated on the
mound where he emerged as
the No. 1 starter and in dis-
trict and regional play threw
eight innings, giving up only
one earned run. He did what
a coach wants from his start-
ing pitcher, kept his team in
the game and gave them a
chance to win.
Joel Earhart. The gritty
senior finally found a home at
third base and became one of
the team's top clutch hitters.
Delivering many big hits in
key situations, none was big-
ger than a two-out, two-run
single in the bottom of the
fifth inning of the regional
quarter final game against
Mariner. It gave the Indians a
2-1 lead at the time, but the
Tritons battled back to take
the game 3-2..
Greg Koehler. Built like the
late great Red Sox closer Dick
Radatz, he was at times this
season simply untouchable.
Possessed with a great curve
ball and a fast ball that occa-
sionally will touch 90, the
potential for this young man
is unlimited. He was victim-
ized at times by a lack of focus
and/or concentration, which
led to streaks of wildness. As
he matures and develops, the

for his position, there is no
telling how far he will go. He
will have the opportunity to
work that through at the
University of North Florida
next season and will be fun to
watch.
Marty Kenealy. He spent
most of the season injured
and unable to play. However,
when it was all said and done,
this kid emerged as Craig
Faulkner's find of the season.
The wiry sophomore has one
of the livelier arms you will
ever see and it appears he has
former Indian Arnold Hug-
hey's ice water in his veins. It
was he who provided the sinm-
gular most impressive perfor-
mance I witnessed all season.
It came in game one of the
districts against the Pirates of
Port Charlotte High School. It
was early in the game and the
Pirates had the bases loaded,
nobody out and were on the
verge of busting the game
wide open. Faulkner handed
Kenealy the ball. and all the
kid did was strike out the next
three hitters. He didn't only
strike them out, he simply
overpowered them.
Another baseball season
has come to an end and
Indian fans look to nextyear.
One of the beautiful things
about living in "Paradise" is
that next year is already here.
The American Legion season
begins in less than two weeks.

The rabbit's tale:




Where can they go?


BY FRAN PALMERI
GUEST WRITER


From the rabbit's point of
"View, this is a very short story.
, The other evening, I was
drivingg on State Road 681 and
"dame upon a rabbit sitting
'stark upright in the road, ter-
fified into immobility. I
swerved, trying to avoid hit-
' ting him.
Stopping to help him cross
W'as impossible with a truck
bearing down on me. In an
iihstant, that living creature
became the roadkill I have so
'often ignored. Suddenly, I
understood the concept
"wildlife crossing" my friend,
Laurel Schiller, has been talk-
ing about.
As I drove along I started
thinking. Was that rabbit
looking for greener pastures?
A new mate? What if it had


Ac*. .


been a gopher tortoise or a
Florida scrub jay, threatened
species found in nearby
Oscar Scherer State Park?

inevitable. With increasing
development, we need new
roads to support it. All these
factors affect our "neighbors"
at Oscar Scherer and other
wildlife preserves.


Loss of habitat.
According to Laurel, who is
president of the Friends of
Oscar Scherer, "Isolation is
the greatest problem animals
in this county currently face.
Confined within the borders
* of protected lands, they can't
move freely from one protect-

ed area to another in search
of food or mates. The result
can lead to islands of wildlife
and ultimately to local extinc-
tions."
Florida is among the top
four states in the United
States for species of plants
and animals in danger of
becoming extinct. The rate of
extinctions is accelerating,
according to the
Environmental Defense
Fund. The reason: loss of
habitat.
An -amendment to the
Environmental Chapter of
the Sarasota Comprehensive
Plan would protect wildlife
corridors and provide fund-
ing for wildlife crossings.
Animals could move safely
from one natural area to
another without crossing
highways even that rabbit,
which might have been just a
pest in someone's vegetable
patch.
I won't be around 100 years
from now, but my grandchil-
dren's children will be. Will
they have to take their kids to
a zoo to see a rabbit?
It seems ludicrous but, as I
think about it, perhaps not
impossible.

work. To arrive at her office in
the communications and pub-
lic relations department by 8:15
a.m., "I don't dare leave after
7:40 from Venice. I listen to the
radio to avoid back-ups, and I
sometimes switch from 1-75 to
Tamiami Trail," he said. "But if
there's a slowdown at the Laurel
Road interchange of 75, I'm in
trouble."
Hilary Anderson-Ayres, a
specialist in human resources
in the county public works
department, recalled that it
took no more than 50 minutes
to get from her home in North
Port to the county government
center on Ringling Boulevard in
Sarasota when she started
making the 38-mile trip in
1994. Today, it takes consider-
ably more than an hour in the
morning, and longer in the
afternoon.
Good reason
No local government agency
keeps statistics on the average
commute north and south on
1-75 or U.S. 41 or on east-west
roads in minutes. The Florida
Department of Transportation
does make daily telemetered
readings of the average num-
ber of vehicles passing a given
point every day of the year.
Some examples: 44.000 at
State Road 45 and U.S. 41
northwest of S.R. 776 inVenice;
57,000 at State Road 93 at 1-75
east of Jacaranda Boulevard in
Venice; 69,500 at S.R. 93 and I-
75 south of Laurel Road.
"This nagging shortage of
affordable housing could
adversely affect our economy,"
said Joseph Barbetta, a mem-
ber of the county planning
commission.
Teachers, hospital workers,
firefighters, municipal and
county employees, those work-
ing in the hospitality and
leisure industries, assemblers
and junior engineers in manu-
facturing- they are the people
who need attention, Rodriguez
suggested.
"This is a' darned good rea-
son to support Habitat for
Humanity," he said. 'At least, it
is for me."

76th annual Venice High commencement


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
Men in green hats and
gowns. Women in white. All
seniors. Walking the slow walk
for what seems like forever and
a day until they finally step up
on the shaky commencement
stage, hear their name called,
receive their diploma, get con-
gratulated by a dignitary from
the Sarasota County School
Board, and take a look out at
the cheering crowd.
In a second it's over.
It's a ritual they won't soon
forget high school gradua-
tion May 20, 2005, on the
grounds of the Venice High
football field where it has never
rained since they started hav-

ceremony, under the lights
with the stands full, where

everyone cheers and there are
no losers.
Whether they heard it or
not. cheers and applause went
up for every single name called
honoring a graduating senior
- all 473.
Some had contingencies.
Take Amanda Felt, a grad-
uating senior on her way to
South Missouri State
University on a full presiden-
tial scholarship. Her proud
parents gathered with uncles
and grandparents from
Illinois, Missouri and
Pensacola.
Uncle Pat Felt displayed a
banner (made of, what else,
felt in green and white) with
Amanda's name on it. Her


father, Bill Felt, owns a billiard
table refurbishing business
called Felt For Felt.
Her grandfather, a tall mus-
cular man 73 years young,
drove his motorcycle 1,250
miles over two days, just for the
occasion.
"I started out in 45 degree
weather in Illinois with three
layers bf clothes. By the time I
got here I was down to a T-
shirt. I wouldn't have missed
Amanda's graduation for any-
thing," said John Felt.
You could tell by the hugs
and tears, those sentiments
were shared by many who
attended Friday evening's
Venice High School com-
mencement.

confidence in their builder.
"Currently we build 12 to 15
homes per year and I'm not
interested in mass-produc-
tion. We're a custom builder
focused on fulfilling our
customer's dreams. I enjoy
building homes and I dedicate
a lot of personal attention to
each home I build, through-
out the entire process. I
personally inspect each home
weekly to ensure the highest
quality materials and crafts-
manship are being utilized.


Typically there are approxi-
mately 3,000 steps in building
a home, and each part is
integral in creating a high
quality residence," Rosasco
said.
"Open communication lines
between the builder and
soon-to-be homeowner are
imperative in realizing the
customer's dreams. I'm
excited about partnering with
Coldwell Banker Sunstar-
Morris Realty & Laurie Lyons
on this project because of
their high standards.
I will always make myself
available to meet with cus-
tomers by appointment, as


understanding their needs is
key to my continued success,"
Rosasco added.
After selecting Storybook
Homes to build a homeown-
ers may design their own
floorplan or select and modify
one from eight existing floor
plans.
"Each individual and family
is unique, with different wants
and needs. My team and I are
here to create distinct homes
suited exactly to the needs of
the customers," Rosasco said.
Some of the standard
features in every Storybook
home are: crown molding,
tray ceilings with rope light-


ing, plant shelves, custom
cabinetry, extra ceramic tile,
oversized lanais and shutters
for all doors and windows.
Storybook Homes will build
on the customer's lot or Laurie
can help them find the perfect
location for their new home.
Prices for a new home start at
$182,500 plus lot.

North Port needs a hospital ASAP


he battle wages on for getting a hospital
in North Port.
From May 24 to June 27, there will be
a hearing before a state administrative judge
in Tallahassee as Universal Health Services
and HCA Inc. contest the granting of a certifi-
cate of need to Health Management
Associates Inc.
With no apparent alternative, the city of
North Port a year ago endorsed UHS, a
Pennsylvania company that owns hospitals
throughout the United States and France.
HMA of Naples then put in its bid and was
awarded the CON last June.
At the hearing UHS will argue that it, not
HMA, was the better of the two candidates for
the CON. HMA received the CON based on a


request for an 80-bed facility; UHS wanted 120
beds.
HCA of Nashville (owner of Fawcett
Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte) will
question whether North Port needs a hospital
at all.
But there is no question: North Port needs a
hospital within its boundaries not just over
the corporate boundary in Charlotte County
or in Sarasota County.
More than 22,000 letters attested to that
need, and then there was a campaign to send e-
mails of support to Alan Levine, the secretary of
the Agency for Health Care Administration,
which grants CONs.
The issue isn't so much who gets the right to
build the hospital as that it is built on a consis-


tent time path. Consistent means there are
few down times and, we hope, no more legal
hurdles on the way to getting the hospital in
North Port.
Although we are not taking sides on who
builds the hospital, traces of doubt still linger
about HMAs intentions despite its attorneys'
statements that HMA will build within North
Port city limits and within a realistic amount of
time.
Recently, HMA bought Bon Secours-St.
Joseph Hospital (and renamed it Peace River
Regional Medical Center) in Port Charlotte
and Bon Secours Venice Hospital (now Venice
Regional Medical Center). Those two hospitals
need considerable attention to return them to
profit-making institutions.


North Port residents would not like it if
HMA's full attention in South County area is
not focused on building their hospital. Nor
would they be understanding if HMA spends
years going through the process of moving the
beds of its other area hospitals to another site
without breaking ground in North Port.
However, if HMA were to decide to transfer
beds to another hospital, while forfeiting the
right to build a North Port facility to Universal,
residents would be ecstatic.
The bottom line is that we want a hospital
for North Port. We know it could take up to five
years to get it built. We just want to make cer-
tain that it gets built within that time frame.
Everything else who builds it and where
it is built is secondary.


We're slowly



getting there

BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

Last week I outlined many
of the areas that the school
board is working on to make
our school system better than
the best in the state, which we
have been. Once that is
asGomplished,-we-might-then-
start comparing to other
states, as happens so often.
when someone moves to our
area and tells us how much
better schools are up north.
Since my column last week
some of the FCAT scores are
in, particularly the writing
and math scores. I mentioned
to a couple of school board
members and Dr. GaryNorris
several months ago that the
tests the students would be
taking this year would be
important to show that all of
the money we have put into
solving the key problems is
helping.
We should remember we
are at the top of all the schools
in the state, so certainly
advancement. would not be
huge, except maybe among
the low-achievers.
It has been great that we
have had summer schools,
second-chance schools, per-
sonal tutors and small classes
to help close the gap between
the low-achievers and the
high-achievers.
The good news is the gap
has been closed somewhat.
The bad news is that we have
achieved that by seeing the*
high achievers drop while the
others pretty much stayed the
same.
That is unfortunate, as it
seemed to me the right things
were in place to bring change.
Maybe it takes time, although
one would think that one-on-
one teaching for a year or
more would have made a dif-
ference and I am sure it has
in some cases.
Do the results, by any,
chance, mean we have
ignored the large body of stu-
dents and focused too much
on the low achievers? I doubt
it, but one could draw that
conclusion.
The state takes money-rich
district's pay and distributes it
to the low-achieving and less-
wealthy counties. That is why
per capital our taxpayers pay
the most or almost the most
of any county.
The state's goal is equality,
for everyone to be the same.
Once it even said it wanted us
to be like Okeechobee, I think
if people wanted to be like
that they would have moved
there, instead of choosing an


area with great arts, schools
and thriving business, not to
mention the beautiful
seashore and a very good and
enlightened education' sys-
tem.
In talking to a couple of
people, including a school
board member, there seems
to be an element of taking the
public for granted this time
around. The first time we
asked the public for more
money for the schools David
Bennett was superintendent
and he figured it would just
happen. He was dead wrong
and the issue failed miserably.
When Wilma Hamilton
went after money she worked
hard-to-wring out every extra
cost she could. She even had a
"pencil fund"'7mat employees
were encouraged to con-
tribute to, to help find things
that would save money.
She brought in outside
auditors to find ways to cut
costs, and they found a few
good ones. She developed a'
citizens board to identify
more things that could be
done and to recommend
which approach the schools
should take to raise money.
I think we all knew where it
was headed that is, a vote
on a tax increase but we felt
good that improvements
were made and we were run-
ning a tight ship.
At the same time we were
assured they would try to
keep costs down. There
would, be a committee that
monitored spending and
would report to the public. I
honestly don't remember one
report to the public by this
committee on spending.
It seems to me they would
have questioned adding 500
employees, or larger-than-
normal raises, or bulging
administration. If that group
would have balked one time
at the spending, we would
have felt better.
Has the school board done
anything to try to equalize the
outflow of money from our
district? Or is it just easier,
now that there is a lot of extra
money, not to bother? Has the
school board or administra-
tion looked at how to pay
teachers more while having
classified employees raises at
different levels to match the
pay in the community for
similar jobs? Have they tried
to change the formula or
partner with other counties in
the same boat?
I hope the rest of the FCATs
show a different result. It was
sort of surprising that
Charlotte County schools
fared better even though their
children were having to do
split sessions. Their kids
improved even considering
they had enormous emotion-
al and sociological problems
to deal with.
I am competitive and want
the best schools anywhere. I

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Lobbyists deal in information, not money


Editor:
A letter printed in your paper is an illustration of the igno-
rance many people have of the legislative process and also
what they think of the people involved.
According to their thinking, all legislators are walking
around with their hands out seeking cash or gifts. Lobbyists are
walking around with pockets full of money or gifts looking for
a legislator to bribe for their very narrow self interest.
This is not the way it works 99 percent of the time.
I was a registered lobbyist in the Indiana General Assembly,
representing the tire industry and public education, for more
than 12 years. Legislators rely on lobbyists for factual informa-
tion concerning the areas they represent.
The businesses I represented are the businesses you rely on
each day for products and services in your community. They
do not have a "war chest" of funds to bribe anyone. Nurses,
nonprofit benevolent organizations, cities, counties, unions
such as police and teachers, and many other entities are repre-
sented by lobbyists.
How do you think legislators can intelligently act on the var-
ious subjects before them without good sources of informa-
tion? Legislators soon learn and use only those lobbyists that
can be trusted with reliable information.

We all pay the.
price for a lack
of quality control
Editor:
"Leave no child behind."
That sounds .like a quality-
control slogan. Have Florida
schools initiated a good qual-
ity-control program?
Apparently not.
Of the 100 high schools
recently selected as America's
best by.Newsweek magazine,
19 are in Florida. Yet Florida
usually ranks in the bottom
25 percent of states in educa-
tion. And Florida's drop-out
rate is among the worst in the
nation.
The showcase mentality
toward education extends to
Florida universities. The


admissions director at Florida
State University compared
top students to Mercedes
Benz cars, worthy of costly big
scholarship offers to encour-
age their attendance. But
aren't our state schools sup-
posed to use our tax dollars to
educate students, not buy
educated students?
Thirty years ago American
car manufacturers had simi-
lar quality problems. They
could make outstanding
showcase race cars but the
public was refusing to buy
their production vehicles,
which were riddled with
defects.
Since these companies
had to make a profit, they
couldn't solve the quality
problem by buying Mercedes


Benz cars and reselling them
under their brand names, or
by dropping out and junking
partly completed cars with
problems from the assembly
line. Even with good quality
consultants, it took car manu-
facturers years to develop a
culture of quality and the atti-
tude of "Leave no car behind"
- no lemons.
Quality doesn't cost: It
pays. Every car recalled costs
the stockholders. Every stu-
dent who drops out and ends
up in jail costs the taxpayers.

Spare the rod and
there's no discipline

Editor:
After reading your account
of discipline at the Early
Childhood Center, I am
forced to write with the wis-
dom and learning of one who
is 87 years young.
When. I attended grade
school, the classroom teacher
had a stick with which the
unruly student got paddled
on the hand, or he or she was
sent to the principal's office
for more severe punishment.
If I didn't behave, my parents
were notified and my father
took over with even more
severe punishment.
This procedure was also.
the normal practice as we
raised five children, all of
whom turned out to be good
students and attended col-
lege by working for about 75
percent of their tuition, room
and board.
I recommend that the


Venice Presbyterian Church
notify all parents that they are
not there to baby-sit and
entertain their child, but to
teach them how to relate
within their community and
begin to learn fundamentals.
Furthermore, I recom-
mend the church school
expel any child who is a disci-
pline problem, send them
home for their parents to care
for and spoil.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! Should corporal punishment spanking be
allowed in Florida schools? CALL 207-1111.


If Florida is paradise ...

Some paradise. Who calls Florida paradise? We are No. 1 in
hurricanes and lightning and in the Top 5 for tornadoes, mos-
quitoes, termites and an assortment of other unpleasantries.
Now it seems we may have made No. 1 again with our lack of
protection of the most innocent: our children. Our govern-
ment services lose children to the pedophiles that find them.
Children are not calling this paradise.


Bias. I'm calling because
our children are not protected
from sex offenders, yet Martha
Stewart has to wear an ankle
bracelet. Is it because she's a
woman?
Parking plan. I have a sug-
gestion for the potential park-
ing problem for the downtown
Venice area: Take Centennial
Park and build a parking
garage similar to Costa Brava,
which is the next street over.
It's unobtrusive and would
double the parking space. You
can do half one year and the
other half the next year.
Responsibility. I'm a liberal,
but three of the four killings of
the children in the last couple
years had been because the.
parents weren't there. The first
one the crabber the.
mother brought the drunk
into her home and he gave her
drugs, so she was asleep and
he could rape the child. Carlie.
Brucia, everybody knows the
mother used to take drugs,
and that the girl didn't want to
leave that night, but her moth-
er was having a party and she
had to go. The other man was
out with his girlfriend and I
guess someone left the door
open, which sounds very odd.
This last one, the girl left on
Saturday night and no one
even looked for her until
Monday. The mother said she
thought she was at a friend's
house, but she didn't call
around and ask. The 17-year-.
old brother left her at 9 at
night, didn't come home until
4 in the morning. So I think
they're just as guilty as the
man who killed her. These
poor kids don't seem to have a


am willing to pay for them
and hope our citizens feel the
same way. But I am against
waste and an arrogance that
takes people for granted.

The Selby Foundation is
celebrating, 50 years of exis-
tence with a series of pro-
grams to highlight lots of
good things it and others
have done. It had a breakfast
this week that detailed some
of the celebrations coming
up.
It honored five past win-
ners of scholarships and what
they had done for their com-
munities. Each was given
$10,000 to donate to local
organization of their choice
- really an uplifting presen-
tation. You will read about
many more ways they plan to
give back to the community
while celebrating.
Deborah Jacobs, the CEO
of the organization, does an
incredible job of helping
agencies in need and under-
stands very well the differ-
ence between needs and
wants.

Each year the Sertoma
Club of Venice has a reverse
raffle. A reverse raffle is where
names are removed from the
hopper and the last one in
wins.
One year Sue and I won a
nice $1,500 travel certificate.
There are lots of other prizes
during the night.
This event is being held
June 4 at the Jacaranda West
Country Club. Food of all
varieties is served in an all-
you-can-eat buffet along with
great music. Tickets are $75
each. Call Fred Hind at 485-

chance. Instead of putting a
bracelet on the criminals, how
about putting one on the
mothers and fathers so that
they have to take responsibili-
ty for the children? Instead,
mothers like Carlie's are get-
ting money from everyone
because of her loss, and I
understand the woman in
Ruskin is getting money.
They're making money off
their children's deaths.
Shut it down. This is in
response to whoever phoned
in saying idling at open
bridges is a waste of gas: I
totally agree. But if one is
idling for more than a minute
other than in traffic at a red
light or something like that,
turn your car off. Easy solu-
tion.
Roaring noise. On wasting
gas waiting for the open
bridges: Anyone with with any
sense in a long line like that
would shut their car off. Other
ways of saving energy are
properly inflated tires and not
doing any jackrabbit starts. As
for airport noise, I remember
when it was a sleepy little air-
port with mostly weekend,
small plane traffic. Now with
the jets we have window-rat-
tling noise along with dirt and
dust stirred up and foul jet fuel
smell. We moved off the island
years ago to get away from it.
We still get the roaring noise.
Old-timers. Definitely there
should be height limits on
Venice Avenue. I think one of
the problems is we need to
change our planning com-
mission. Some of the plan-
ning commissioners have
been on there well more than

Honorees, MCC has held
open the door of opportunity
to each one of you. And you
have chosen not only to go
through that door, but to suc-
cessfully cross over the
threshold into academic
excellence.
That's not been easy. Many
of you have been juggling full-
time jobs, families and over-
whelming financial circum-
stances.
Some of you have prayed
your transportation would
hold out that last mile before
your final exams started.
Some of you have been bat-
tling health problems. Some
of you have even had to carry
the emotional burden of
being told you would not
even succeed at the college
level.
Yet, each of you has chosen
not to succumb to things that
would bury your talents in the
ground, but instead to rise to
each occasion that chal-
lenged you and to make your
dreams come true.
Honorees, look around
you. Here are those parents,
family, friends, spouses and

We encourage you to

Do not allow anything else to

Not all teeth are acceptable as candidates for bleaching. It is important
to listen to your dentist's advice. Experience tells your dentist which
teeth will be successful or not. Teeth that are vital or those that have or
need root canal therapy can both be treated.
The steps of a vital bleach include isolating the tooth, cleaning the
tooth thoroughly, air drying the tooth, and finally placing a special
solution on the tooth, using moderate heat. Many dentists repeat the
process two or more times. Results can vary, but even an excellent
result many not remain successful for more than a few years.
An alternative to vital bleaching is nonvital bleaching. The steps
involved are basically the same. The exception is that the tooth is
bleached from both the inside and the outside. Studies and experience
have shown that is a more predictable and successful procedure
because the bleaching process penetrates more thoroughly and is not
limited to the tooth's enamel.

tions.
She is moving to Missouri.
Pattie Jones presented Rose-
mary with a nice gift from the
members of the art center as a
"Token of our love." Dick
Dodderidge recalled he and
Rosemaryworked at the same
ad agency in Kansas more

reacquainted in Venice.
Rosemary leaves a nice
legacy. She wrote the song,
"Discover Venice," which is
the theme song for Vee
Chiulli Garry's TV show.
Rosemary also painted the
gorgeous mural at Our Lady
of Lourdes' Church on Center
Road.
This nice lady will be miss-
ed. We wish her well.

the needs of tsunami Lictims
in Thailand, John decided to
take a working vacation to
that country.
He will spend two weeks in
Thailand helping set up com-
munications systems and
working at schools. He also
plans to give a lot of hugs. He is
just the right person to do that.
John's mom, Barbara Free-
man, heard Roscoe Turner
speak at the Rotary meeting
about the needs tsunami vic-
tims are still facing. When she
told John, he knewitwas apro-
ject he wanted to serve. John
promised to keep in touch so I
can provide updates.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part
one of a two-part series.
BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

Some people loathe reach-
ing the age of 50. The William
G. and Marie Selby Foun-
dation is loving it.
Celebrating its vitality after
50 years, the foundation held
its anniversary kick-off with a
breakfast on May 17. The cel-
ebration will last through July.
The foundation has many
reasons to celebrate.
A foundation is a financial
entity usually created to save
taxes for donors who want to
support a cause but that is
just part of it. It is also a basis
with an underlying principle.
William and Marie Selby
started theirs to help young
people succeed because they
had no children of their own.
It was also away for the Selbys
to create a legacy in Sarasota,
a town they loved.
In the United States there
are some 65,000 foundations
that were set up for people to
reflect their values through
their resources. There are
mega foundations like Bill
and Melinda Gates' founda-
tion and there are family
foundations. Each founda-
tion decides what their mon-
ey will support. For the Selby
Foundation that is scholar-
ships and bricks and mortar
-projects.
"Quite honestly tax rea-
sons had a lot to do with it,"
Foundation President Debra
Jacobs said. "In 1955 they set
it up with $3 million. A year
later Mr. Selby passed away
and his assets went to Mrs.
Selby. Mrs. Selby lived until
1971, so she had 16 years with
the foundation and when she
died $16 million went into the
foundation. So two gifts went
into the foundation. We don't
raise money. We just spend
that $19 million dollars, but
because of compound inter-
est and good investments -
out of that original $19 mil-
lion we've been able to give
away $76 million."
Jacobs said the foundation
is worth $7T0 million today.'
The legacy- a person can leave
through a foundation, as
Jacobs put it, "grows as it
gives."
When Mr. and Mrs. Selby
were alive they could've spent
their money on cars, boats,
houses and vacations or they
could've given their money to
the hospital, schools and col-
leges and made everybody
happy. Because that $19 mil-


lion went 'into this founda-
tion, every year $3.5 million is
given out.
Private foundations have
to give away about 5 percent
every year, but because of the
good investments that have
been done over time and that
5 percent rule, the foundation
has kept on growing.
"I always think it's so in-
credibly exciting that Mr. and
Mrs. Selby decided to set up a
foundation. When you and I
are retired they'll still be giv-
ing away $3 million to $4 mil-
lion a year, if not more
depending on how the stock
market does. So, it's really an
exciting thing."
The challenging part about
foundations is they can give
money to nonprofit organiza-
tions, but nonprofits have to
figure out which foundation
will support what they do. In
the case of the Bill and Me-
linda Ga es' foundation,
which deals with worldwide
diseases somebody wanting
money for a play won't get
very far.
"We always have more
requests than there is money
available. I probably spend
more time with people who
Don't get money because I try
to find another way to help."
The foundation has two
things that they do; scholar-,
ships for the college bound or
-bricks and mortar projects.
If people are doing a build-
ing project, the Selby Foun-
dation tends to be the place
they apply.
"We do projects that I have
to be able to bump into and
they can't breathe. What that
means is some foundations
will have grants for programs
like a theater production,
which is an aci\ity. We give to
inert things that don't
breathe," Jacobs said.
With us you can only apply
for a grant twice a year. We
have two grant cycles a year
on Feb. 1 and Aug. 1. LWh en
you apply for a grant you have
to submit your proposal and
then we come out and talk to
you and find out what you're
doing as an organization.
"We've been doing this for
50 years, so there aren't too
many organizations in Venice
who haven't gotten a grant
from us."
Scholarships
.3,500 individuals have re-
ceived scholarships from the
foundation totaling more
than $11 million.
"We actually have a lot of
-smaller scholarship pro-
grams, but our hallmark pro-


Carolyn D. Robinson, vice president and senior branch manag-
er of SunTrust Bank, was one of the five Selby honorees. She
chose to give her check to Children First at the Helen R. Payne
Center.

gram is called Selby Scholar,"
Jacobs said. "Every year we
choose 30 students and we
give them a four-year com-
mitment of up to $6,500 a
year, so it's a $25,000 scholar-
ship, overall, that we could
give you."
SIf you don't need that
much we won't give you that
much. In order to get it re-
newed every year you have to
keep your grade point aver-
age at 3.0 or above, you have
to write us an essay telling us
how you're doing and you
have to give me your financial
information, but the neat part
about our scholarship pro-
gram is that every December


you're required to attend the
Selby Scholars s\inposium.
S"I go out to all 120 students
and ask them what their
major is or what they would
like to do. So, if you want to be
a high school principal you sit
with a high school principal.
So everybody at the lunch
gets to sit with somebody
who does what they think
they want to do. It's just mar-
velous because some get
internships and they learn
networking."
"Every year we have kids
from South County. We cover
four counties; Manatee, De-
Soto, Charlotte and Sarasota.
We want a wide geographic


range," Jacobs said. "We call it
Selby Scholar but you don't
need to be a valedictorian, it's
really that you have financial
need, number one and you
have to have the potential of
being successful."
Honorees
Five former scholarship
winners were honored at the
breakfast. They received their
original Selby scholarships
because they showed poten-
tial. IMa 17.' they each re-
ceived checks for $10,000 and
flags that had flown over the
U.S. capital because they had

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist


Q. My husband has hearing
loss and refuses to wear
hearing aids. He is always
saying "What?" and when I
repeat myself he accuses me
of "shouting" at him! Help!
A.There are a number of
simple things which you can
do to' improve communi-
cation with your husband.
Common sense suggestions
such as getting your
husband's' visual attention
before speaking and avoiding
noisy situations will help him
a bit. However, there has
been some creative research
conducted at Massachusetts
Institute of Technology of the
concept of something called
"clear speech." In "clear
speech", a speaker
consciously attempts to alter
their speech patterns in four
ways. First, SLOW DOWN
your rate of speaking. (If one
thinks about it, this is what

Instead, we bring superior, affordable health care to our neighbors and local businesses in meaningful
and innovative ways. And when we do turn a profit, we turn it back into the services you need.

Alcoholism a growing



problem with seniors


Dear Savvy Senior,
I am very concerned that my
70-year-old mom has devel-
oped a drinking problem. Since
dad died a couple of years ago,
mom has started drinking way
too much. I know she's feeling
lonely but this isn't the answer.
Do you have any information on
seniors and alcoholism and do
you have any tips on con-
fronting this problem? -

among the elderly is a grow-
ing concern in the United
States today. In fact, accord-
ing to the American Medical
Association, 3 million
Americans over the age of 60
have a drinking problem. So,
kindly talk to you mom
about your concerns and
don't wait. The shorter a per-
son's history of alcohol
abuse, the more likely inter-
vention and treatment will be
successful.
Sobering facts
Some experts estimate
that between 10 and 15 per-
cent of health problems in
the elderly population is
linked to alcoholism. Here
are some things you should
be aware of:
Mixing alcohol with
medications can be a dan-
gerous and even deadly com-
bination.
Drinking can increase
the risk of accidents, includ-
ing falls and hip fractures.


Heavy drinking over time
can cause certain cancers,
liver, cirrhosis, immune sys-
tem disorders and brain
damage.
Alcohol can increase
health risk like high blood
pressure, diabetes and ulcers.
Drinking can make older
people more forgetful and
confused, which could be
mistaken for signs of
Alzheimer's disease.
Alcohol can cause
changes in the heart and
blood vessels. These changes
can dull pain that might be a
warning sign of a heart
attack.
Drinking and driving is
always a concern. More than
10 percent of U.S. drivers are
over the age of 65.
Savvy fact
Women are more likely to
start heavy drinking later in
life than men.

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST


Sometimes as we get older,
our adult children have to
draw a fine line between
"father knows best" and let-
ting us parents "call the
shots," which we surely want
to do. Perhaps sometimes
they have a perspective that
we don't. For example, the
very touchy subject of keep-
ing and driving our car. We
may not be so sure about
somebody else, but we tend
to think that we know what
we're doing, that we're invin-
cible. Maybe.
It is hard to believe that it
has been almost four years
since I wrote this little rhyme:

Sometime after you reach


eighty,
Your child might begin to
say,
"Mom, perhaps there's a
better way."
As time goes by the tables
begin to turn.
The child you nurtured
through the years
Now begins to show con-
cerns.
You may rebel at too much
suggestion,
Your freedom of choice is a
prized possession.
If you have children who
really care about you
You are among the truly
fortunate few.
Another subject which
may come up is Long Term
Care Insurance. OK, I know
you do not want to think
about any more insurance! In
today's world modem medi-
cine keeps most of us living
longer! It is my observation
that most people in their 50s
and 60s and 70s should con-
sider Long Term Care In-
surance. Of course, the
younger you are when pur-
chasing it, the less the premi-
ums will be. My three chil-
dren secured theirs while still


in their 50s. I opted for an in-
dependent agent who repre-
sented many different com-
panies and knows the ratings
of all of them, and offered me
a wide variety of options.
Some newer policies will pay
for care at home if medically
prescribed, or assisted living
nursing care.
When I was 77, 1 investigat-
ed Long Term Care policies
for nursing homes; I told the
agent that I only wanted to
cover two years, because no-
body lives in a nursing home
longer than that! The agent
convinced me to get four
years' coverage. I paid $2,000
a year for eight years, com-
plaining all the while! Though
the premiums were really not
high, I kept telling my chil-
dren I really couldn't afford
them, and they advised, "Yes
mom, but pay them anyway."
They were so right! Six years
ago, my children and I decid-
ed it was .time to move to
assisted living. The agent
found out, and informed us
that it covered assisted living
too. In the first four years in
Long Term Care, I collected

$73,000 for my care. Not a big
windfall, but it sure helped!
A friend of mine took out a
$350,000 policy that could be
used for home care, if med-
ically necessary, or assisted
living nursing care.
Another friend took out a
policy that covered her and
her husband, with any un-
used balance carrying over to
the other spouse.
The wide varieties of poli-
cies available are something
you and your children might
want to discuss. I'm sure this
is not for everyone, but I just
wanted you to think about it.
My friend Bud contributed
this poem for my column:
'I Love To Live'

Today, dear Lord, I'm 80, and
there's much I haven't done.
I hope, dear Lord, you'll let me
live until I'm 81.
But then, if I haven't finished
all I want to do,
SWould you please let me stay
awhile, until I'm 82?
So many places I want to go,
so very much to see,
Do you think you could make
it 83? y
The world is changing very
fast, there is so much in store,
I'd like it very. much to live
until I'm 84.
And if by then I'm still-alive, I'd
like to stay'til 85!
More planes will be up in the
air, so I'd really like to stick
And see what happens to the
world when I turn 86.
I know dear Lord, it's much to
ask,
(and it must be nice in heav-
en)
But I'd really like to stay, until
I'm 87.
I know by then I won't be fast,
and sometimes will be late,
But it would be so pleasant to
be around at 88.
I will have seen so many
things, and had a wonderful
time.
So, I'm sure that I'll be willing
to leave at the age of 89 ...
Maybe.
Just one more thing I'd like to
say, dear Lord, thank you
kindly.
But if it's OK with you, I'd love
to live past 90.

Who has a problem?
Not everyone who drinks
regularly has a drinking prob-
lem, and not all problem
drinkers drink every day. For
those people who develop a
drinking problem later in life,
which is called late onset
alcoholism, it's usually due to
major life changes like retire-
ment, failing health, or the
death of friends or a loved
one, which can create feel-
ings of loneliness, boredom,
anxiety and depression. In
fact, depression in older
adults often goes along with
alcohol misuse. At first, a
drink seems to bring relief
from a stressful situation.

Volunteers needed
for aging survey

The NORC project is look-
ing for volunteers to partici-
pate as interviewees or inter-
viewers in a needs assess-
ment survey. NORC (Natural-
ly Occurring Retirement
Communities) is a federal

signed to test innovative
strategies to empower seniors
to age in place. Jewish Family

develop the local project. This
nondenominational project
helping seniors age in their

STAFF REPORT


File it under "things I never
thought I'd see!"
A group of historic inns
and motor courts in mid-
coast Maine (many of which
are former 19th century ship
captain's homes with intricate
woodwork and craftsman-
ship) are offering significantly
discounted rates during the
state's all-too-brief High
Season.
During the "Finding Wal-
do" promotion, discounted

catering discounted weekly
rental rates (from cottages to

ed motor court rates will

larly-priced rates are $49 to
$159) June through October
2005. That's a 10-15 percent
savings for savvy travelers
looking for a New England
"bahgain!"
Where's Waldo, you ask?
The 734-square-mile county
includes some 26 small New
England villages, many along

land to rolling hillsides and
charming country roads. Lo-

WWII commemoration event to be held on Tinian Island


Sixtieth anniversary
of bombings to be
remembered.


STAFF REPORT

Sixty years ago, the world-
famous B-29s (Enola Gay and
Bock's Car) were launched
from Tinian. Their destina-
tion? Hiroshima and Naga-
saki, which would become
the target of the U.S. atomic
attack that promptly ended
World War II.
Since that time, Tinian, an
island located in the Northern
Marianas (Northwestern Pa-
cific Ocean) has become a
Commonwealth of the United
States, as well a prominent
historical preservation area
for World War II events.
From Aug. 2 to 10, the
Peaceful Commemoration of
the 60th Anniversary of the
Atomic Missions will be held
on the island of Tinian.

Guatemala: A land of jungles, volcanoes, ancient ruins and human drama


BY LUKE TRAUTWEIN
GUEST WRITER


The rainbow-colored bus
zooms through blind curves,
and marimba music pulsates
through the stereo. Dangling
window tassels lean through
the turns with the rest of the
passengers. Just think: Six
hours ago, you parked your
car safely in long-term park-
ing in the United States.
A window seat on this wild
bus ride comes with the terri-
tory in Guatemala. Passing
through shantytowns built
high into the side of moun-
tain peaks, you realize there'
may be no other place so for-.
eign, so cheap and yet so
close to home.
A plane ride connects you
with jungles echoing with
monkey howls, volcanoes
spewing sulfur and jaw-drop-
ping Mayan ruins'.
Thirty years of civil war
have left deep scars, in a
Guatemalan society that has
yet to heal. There are sharp
distinctions between the
indigenous Mayans, who
make up half of the popula-
tion, and the more privileged
landinos (those of mixed
European ancestry).
The Mayans' sun-cracked
faces and worn hands are evi-
dence that their struggle to
overcome Third World hard-
ships is far from over. But a
new focus on tourism is slow-
ly helping Guatemalans out
of their shadowy past of gov-
ernment corruption and civil
war.
A. two-week journey to
Guatemala can easily cost
under $1,000. It is easy to live
on around $10-$15 a day,
even cheaper if bargain trav-
eling is your game.
Like most travel, final trip
expenses can differ tremen-
dously depending on your
tastes. For about $1 (8 quetza-
les), you can choose from
tacos, hot dog chapin (hot
dog with cabbage and avoca-
do creme), and other risky
street delicacies. Or you can
pay around $10 for meals
including several courses.
Lodging is cheap, too.


Hospedajes, complete with a
sink and a dirty mattress, will
run you less than $3 a night.
Luxury hotels, however, cost
about the same as they would
in the United States, and
there are many other options
that will make any visitor
comfortable.
I took my trip on a shoe-
string budget. And the shoe-
string got even shorter after
two of the three 20-some-
thing men that I traveled with
were pickpocketed while get-
ting off a bus on the second '
day of the journey.
You must be aware at all
times in Guatemala. Zipped
pockets, fanny packs even
money hanging around your
neck is all accessible to
professional pickpockets or
purse-snatchers.
Any trip to Guatemala
must start in Guatemala City,
the largest urban area in
Central America and home to
a big international airport.
Smog-filled air and a thick
stream of chaotic sidewalk
vendors gave us a claustro-
phobic feeling. Although
there are some fine museums
worth visiting, it's best to get
out of town and a short bus
trip takes you to Antigua, one
of the oldest and most beauti-
ful cities in the Americas, a
good place to go first.
,Antigua's cobblestone
streets are a welcome contrast
to the chaotic horns and con-
crete of Guatemala City. You
can wander through ruins of
old cathedrals and smell the
thick jungle air. It's a great
base for exploring the coun-
try.
Antigua is surrounded by
three magnificent volcanoes:
Agua, Fuego and Acatenango.
These. volcanoes provide a
wonderful backdrop and nav-
igational points, but pale in
comparison to the 'active
Pacaya volcano, a great day-
trip about 20 miles from
Antigua. Climbing this 8,371-
foot volcano is as stimulating
as the volcano itself.
A trusty guide on Pacaya is
a must. .Robbers have been
known to prey on tourists
who come to see the spewing


pockets of lava and smell the
fuming sulfur. A fellow travel-
er told a tale of their machete-
wielding guide who relied on
his dog for traveling instruc-
tions. If the dog wouldn't go
up, then the group wouldn't,
in fear of an imminent erup-
tion.
After a couple of days in
Antigua, our travels took us to
Panajachel, a lakeside town
about 30 miles to the west.
Surrounded by three sleepy
volcanoes, "Pana" was home
to hippies on extended vaca-
tions back in the 1960s and
'70s. Nowit serves as entrance
to the great Lago de Atiflan, a
lake surrounded by 13 villages
inhabited primarily by May-
ans of Cakchiquel and Tzu-
tuhil descent.
According to ancient be-
lief, Lago de Atitlan was one of
the four lakes that marked the
comers of the world. The live-
ly villages are accessible by
ferries and handmade canoes
crisscrossing the lake. These
villages -are full of''potential
experiences because of their
inviting inhabitants. Playing
soccer or having a drink with
these lakeside people is possi-
ble even without speaking
their mix of Spanish and
Mayan tongue.
The largest village around
Lago de Atitlan is Santiago de
Aidlan.
Traditional costumes are
everywhere in this home of
the Tzutuhil people. The most
beautiful piece of attire in this
village are the women's
xocopes 10-meter-long red
straps wrapped around their
long, black hair. Along every
cobblestone street, there are
traditionally dressed men and
women standing in their col-
orfully painted doorways,
taking a break from their daily
routines.
The traveler and the native
peek at each other's strange
ways of life up and down the





/y17


steep lakeside hills of San-
tiago de Atitlan.
About 25 miles north of
Panajachel are world-class
markets in the village of Chi-
chicastenango, held weekly
on Thursday and Sundays.
Whether buying gorgeous
carved masks or hand-woven
textiles, haggling is a must.
Visitors will tell you their spe-
cific secrets to getting the low-
est price, but 30 percent be-
low the asking price is a good
place to start. The euphoria of
getting a great price is reason
alone to visit this highland
jewel.
After exploring the area
around Pana for a couple of.
days, we headed back to
Guatemala City and took an
all-night sleeper bus to Flores
($9 fare), some 200 miles to
the north. Flores is a launch-
ing point on the way to Tikal,
the great Mayan religious
center about 40 miles farther
north.
Flores is virtually sur-
rounded by Lago Peten Itza
and accessible by a dusty
causeway that connects it to
the rest of the world. It's
chock-full of colorful hostels
and hotels that cater to
crowds of tourists from all
over the world. Having dinner
or drinks lakeside with vaca-
tioners from every comer of
the globe is all a part of the
fun.
But bedtime comes early
in Flores, because seeing sun-
rise at the Tikal ruins the next
morning is one of the most
spiritual traveling experi-
ences available.
The shriek of parrots is the
welcoming call to Tikal. The
inescapable jungle air is so
humid that you begin sweat-
ing minutes after arrival.
The Mayans settled in this
area around 700 B.C. because
of the abundance of flint and
other natural resources. The
framework of the many great


temples was built 200 years
after their arrival and by the
time of Christ, the Great Pla-
za's foundation was being
constructed. Much about Ti-
kal is still being discovered.
The five main pyramids
once towered over 50,000 to
60,000 com-growing inhabi-
tants. The tallest, the Temple
of the Two Headed Snake
(Temple IV), soars 212 feet
above the jungle floor. It is the
tallest pyramid in the Amer-
icas.
The awe-inspiring pyra-
mids were all built within a
50-year period in the eighth
century A.D. Less than a cen-
tury later, Tikal was aban-
doned, and the thick jungle
that surrounded it swallowed
the once-great empire.
What is so great about Tikal
is the almost unlimited access
any sightseer has. Unlike at
many ancient ruins or his-
toric places, there are barely
any roped-off areas or signs
guiding people around. There
are no security guards keep-
ing people from climbing or
special passes required. -
Scrambling all over the
ruins is expected. You can
enter unlit excavating caves
(bring a flashlight), climb
thousands of steps and slide
your hand over barely visible
stone-carved glyphs. You get
an Indiana Jones-type feeling
when your hands and clothes
are dirty from crawling
around where great. Mayan
religious leaders once lived.
The best place to end your
journey through Guatemala
is on top of Temple IV
High above the treeline,
you can see bright green par-


rots darting from tree to tree
and monkeys swinging limb
to limb. At times, the unnerv-
ing screams of Howler mon-
keys drown out the squawk of
birds and tourists flipping
through their travel guides.
You can imagine Mayan
priests standing on the same
steep ledges, contemplating
their purpose or watching out
for incoming bands of war-
riors.
Just think: These pyramids
are where Mayan religious
leaders once performed hu-
man sacrifice. A place so for-
eign, so mystical and yet so
close to home. So close you
can almost see your car
parked back in the long-term
parking lot in the States.
Guatemalan
chicken buses
The best and cheapest way
to get around in Guatemala is
by bus: Buses cost about one
U.S. dollar (eight quetzales)
per hour of travel. These con-
verted U.S. school buses
spent their intended life'
spans shuttling children
somewhere in the states. The
buses are reborn in Guate-
mala, named and lavishly
decorated by their drivers,
who can somehow light a cig-
arette and turn up the volume
at the same time.
The nicknamed "chicken
buses" pack four adults to a
seat that was designed for two
grade-schoolers. Like most
places in Guatemala, be sure
to watch your money and
more imnportandly, get a win-
dow seat to watch these
amazing people live their
daily lives.

Daily money manager
Dear Savvy Senior
I was home visiting my 82-
year-old mother last week when
I discovered that she has missed
paying some of her bills over


the past five or six months. My
dad always used to take care of
the family money matters, but
he died last year. Now, mom has
to handle everything and is
really struggling. Do you know
of any options that can help her
keep up with her money and
bills? I live 400 miles away and
could use some help. The
Spending Patrol
Dear Spending,
There's actually a growing
industry of financial care-
givers today, called daily
money managers (DMMs),
who specialize in helping
seniors manage their day-to-
day personal finances. It's
estimated that more than
500,000 older Americans
need help with their financial
affairs, many of whom rely
on nearby family members
for help. But for those who
don't have that option, a
DMM can be a good solu-
tion. Here's what you should
know.


Daily money managers
A DMM is like a personal
financial assistant that pro-
vides a wide range of ser-
vices. Depending on your
needs, they can sort the mail,
pay the bills, deliver bank
deposits, balance the check-
book and help maintain a
budget. They will even moni-
tor bank statements to make
sure no one is dipping into
your funds. A DMM will also
keep track of medical bills
and insurance forms and
organize your tax docu-
ments. And if need be, they
can even negotiate with
pesky creditors and financial
institutions to help clean up
your credit.
Finding a DMM
The best way to find a
good DMM is to get a referral
from someone you know and
trust, such as a friend, rela-
tive, lawyer, accountant, or
doctor. If you still need assis-
tance, here are three re-
sources that can help you:
Area Aging Agency: Call


(800) 677-1116 to get your lo-
cal aging agency phone
number.
American Association of
Daily Money Managers: Visit
aadnmm.com or call (301)
593-5462.
National Association of
Professional Geriatric Care
Managers: Visit caremanager
.org or call (520) 881-8008.
About 20 percent of geriatric
care managers provide daily
money management services.
Hiring a DMM
Once you've found a few
potential candidates, make
sure you interview them to
find the right fit. Daily money
management is not regulated
by any state or federal orga-
nization. So don't hire any-
one without doing some
homework and asking lots of
questions. Here are some
things to check into:
Ask for credentials and
verify them. For example, do
they belong to the AADMM
or NAPGCM?
Are they willing to in-

Volunteer railroaders
needed

Florida Gulf Coast Railroad
Museum Inc. needs volun-
teers to keep its trains on
track.
Train rides are offered
every Saturday and Sunday,
departing from the Parrish
station at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for adults and
$6 for children ages 3-11.
Volunteers do it all at this
museum on rails that oper-
ates from its own station in
Parrish. The museum is look-
ing for assistance in every
area, from maintenance to
operations. On the opera-
tional side, volunteers begin
as car attendants, concession
attendants and ticket agents.
The first day out on the


train in a volunteer capacity is
a safety and orientation day
with a conductor. These are
real trains, with historic cars
that have been restored or are
in the process of being
restored.
Volunteers must be muse-
um members in good stand-
ing because of insurance
requirements. Once a volun-
teer has completed the orien-
tation, mentoring and train-
ing is provided to enable vol-
unteers to work up through
the ranks to trainman, con-
ductor, fireman and engineer
if they chose. Dues are $30
per year.
The membership applica-
tion is on the museum's Web
site at frrm.org. For more
information, call (877) 869-
0800.

realized their potential and
became successful men and
women in their communities.
This checks were not to keep
but to pass on, stretching the
Selby legacy even farther. The
five were chosen from a pool
of former scholarship win-
ners, based on essays that
were to state what they had
done with their lives.
Honorees included Car-
olyn D. Robinson, Dr. Jim
Dolan, Kelley Kirschner, Bish-
op Henry L. Porter and Sherri
Reynolds. Each have excelled
,since receiving gifts from the
foundation.
Robinson is vice president
and senior branch manager
of SunTrust Bank. She donat-


ed her check to Children First
at the Helen R. Payne Center.
"As a child growing up
there was a daycare and nurs-
ery behind my parents' home
and I would always hear the
children laughing on the
playground and it reminded
me how good it was to feel
safe," said Robinson about
her organization of choice.
The whole idea of present-
ing the checks was to give to
each other. It's all part of the
Selby legacy.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The second
half of this story celebrating the
benefactors of this foundation and
its contributions to South county
will appear in the May 25 edition
of the Venice Gondolier Sun.


volve another person in their
work, such as a lawyer, ac-
countant, or family member?
Ask for references from
clients and at least one pro-
fessional.
If you are going to allow
someone to sign checks, be
sure the person is bonded or
has liability insurance.
What do they charge?
Most DMMs charge between
$30 and $100 an hour de-
pending on where you live
and the complexity of your
financial situation. Most
DMMs charge for their travel
time and for out-of-pocket
expenses.

ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet

ison began teaching a new
kindergarten class.
Rutherford graduated
from Venice Elementary
School, then middle school
and then Venice High.
Andie Madison continued
to teach new kindergarten
classes.
Rutherford attended MCC,
graduated from the Uni-
versity of South Florida and
became a teacher.
Twenty-three years from
the last time 5-year-old Sa-
mantha Rutherford walked
out of Andie Madison's kin-
der-garten class in spring
1981, she returned as a
kindergarten teacher.
Andie Madison was still
teaching kindergarten. Now
teaching in a classroom next
to her is her former student,
Samantha Rutherford.
Madison has taught at
Venice Elementary for 32
years. She has mixed emo'
tions about moving into the
new VES slated for comple-
tion in July.


"lit ill still be Venice Ele-
mentary in that the faculty's
the same, but I'll miss the
building," says Madison.
"Every time I walk down the
halls or go into a teachers
room, it brings back some-
thing that happened in
school to me."
Rutherford speaks fondly
of her former kindergarten
teacher: "She was one of my
favorite teachers, so I was
very excited .... I wanted to
be just like her."
Seven current teachers at
VES were students at the
school that opened in Oc-
tober 1953 and will be demol-
ished beginning June 3.
Students, also take bbth
sides of the last year in the
52-year-old building.
Sierra Price, a first-grader,
was having lunch with her
aunt, Sue Smith, in one of the
four gazebos located at the
front of the school for relatives
to meet with the, children at
lunchtime. When asked if
she'll miss the old VES, Price
responded, "Yeah, because my
dad went to this school."
But Price's sister, kinder-
gartner Alexus, said she's
looking forward to going to
the new school because "it's
going to be pretty." '
Cost of the new school is
$12 million. The building will
have 113,000 square feet and
is scheduled for completion
July 15.
Principal Theresa Baus


sees the new school as an
advantage from an opera-
tional point of view.
"We're all within one self-
contained building, so the
security is absolutely going
to improve," she said, adding,
that there will be more class-
room space and what Baus
describes as "future-proof"
technology.
However, Baus, who has
been the principal at VES for
just more than two years,
understands the sadness of
teachers and staff, some of
whom have spent decades
working at the school.
"I think about the thou-
sands and thousands of kids
who have walked these halls,
learned in these classrooms
... I think of every time I'm on
the field, you can hear their
echoes of their voices across
that field over the decades,
more than five decades of
children," added Baus as she
worked in an office beginning
to fill with boxes packed with
supplies to be transferred to
the new school.
The 690 students will leave
the building for the last time
on Tuesday, May 24.
For the 100 teachers and
staff, nine days will remain to
pack their books, supplies
and memories before the de-
molition crew arrives June 3.
