Venice youth: Lookin' for a place to hang

:, .Flooded with new, young patrons after the movie
theaters closed, the local bowling alley begins a
weekend cover charge for teens who do not bowl.

mall in Sarasota.


AMF Venice Lanes manag-
er Mike Wilczewski remem-
bers the first Friday night
there wasn't a movie theater
inVenice.
That was the night where it
seemed as if every area teen
showed up at his bowling
alley.
They weren't looking for
the latest fashions in bowling
shoes or to see if they could
toss three strikes for a turkey.
They just wanted a place to
hang out.
"We were slammed,"
Wilczewski said. "There had
to have been at least 60 to 70
kids in that night. We weren't
expecting them to come in
here, and lanes, one through
40 were full of league bowlers.
It was complete chaos."
The craziness of Sept. 10,
2004,. continued on subse-
quent Fridays. Venice's bowl-
ing alley used to average 10 to
15 teens at night, shooting


pool and playing video
games, but the turnout re-
mained steady at 60 to 70
every weekend night, Wilcze-
wski said.
After customer com-
plaints, vandalized video
games and a pair of nasty
fights, Wilczewski started
charging $5 on Friday and
Saturday nights for any teens
who were not there to.bowl.
He also wound up spending
$160 a night to hire a Sarasota
County sheriffs 'deputy who
watches the door and moni-
tors the teens.
All of this is causing prob-
lems for 15-year-old Marisa
Amato of South Venice, who
just wants a place to hang out
with her friends on a Friday
night.

Lori Blackburn knewwhen
she was 7 that she wanted to
be a soldier.
She slipped her father's sil-
ver dog tags around her neck
and told the Vietnam veteran
about her plans to join the
U.S. Army. He smiled at hislit-
de daughter and said, "No,
you're not."
But even m high school,
where Blackburn was home-
coming queen and a self-
described "Miss Priss," she
never changed her mind. She
joined the U.S. Army when
she was 18 and knew halfway
through basic training that
being a soldier was all she
ever really wanted to do with
her life.
As lbng as there have been
men serving in the U.S.
armed forces, there have
been women like Blackburn,
willing to join and proud to
fight for the land they love -
from Deborah Sampson, who
disguised herself as a man to
fight for her fledgling country


in the Revoluuonary War, to
Specialist Lori Piestewa, the
first woman to die in the cur-
rent Iraq war two years ago.
Although they have never
officially occupied combat
roles on the "front lines,"
women have served in the
military during every war and
conflict. According to the
Women in Military Service for
America Memorial, more
than 400,000 women served
in the military during World
War II. Of those women, 432
were killed and 88 were taken
prisoner of war.'
Friends lost
In Florida alone, there are
more than 131,000 female
veterans and no matter what
role they served in the armed
forces, many of these women,
like Blackburn, say they're
just as proud to be veterans as
the men they know.
"I can't remember nor
being proud of it," Blackburn
said of the military. loved it.
I didn't want to get married. I

Nokomis Volunteer Fire
Department Chief Dave
Kemerer was put on paid
administrative leave May 26.
"We received 10 or 11 let-
ters from our firefighters just
about morale in the depart-
ment, nothing bad," Fire
Commissioner and Board
Chair Bob Markuson said, "so
we have to look into it. and it's
just better to put the person

Markuson would not elab-
orate on what specific allega-
tions were made in the letters
from the firefighters.
Kemerer has been NVFD
chief for six months, Marku-
son said.
"Most of our firefighters
were here when Scot Lane
was chief," Markuson said,
"and it is hard to fill his shoes
in such a short period of
time."
Kemerer did not return


phone calls.
Business decision
Nlarktison, head of the
seven-member board of
directors, called the action
taken by the board a "corpo-
rate decision involving the
six-month contract we have
with the chief."
."We are reviewing his con-
tract," Markuson said, "it's his
six-month review."'
SMarkuson said Kemerer is
the only paid member of the.
36-man department.

Kemerer's predecessor, for-
mer Chief Scott Lane, the

partment last yearto accept a
full-time paid position as a
trainer for the Englewood Fire
Department.
Lane was NVFD chief for
S17.years. He was well-liked
* and highly respected by his
own firefighters, as well as by
firefighters and chiefs from
professional fire departments
across the state.
'Professional' volunteers
Fire victims have used
words like "quick, efficient,
gentlemen, professional,
dedicated" to describe NVFD
firefighters who have saved
their lives and their homes.
Many firefighters fresh out
of the academy choose to go


to work for the NVFD because
of the. department's highly
rated on-the-job training.
They said it gives them an
opportunity to hone their
skills and learn new ones
while waiting for future as-
signments.
Volunteer firefighters with
the Nokomis fire department
are highly sought and recruit-
ed by professional fire depart-
ments statewide.
The NVFD recently receiv-
ed a $97,900 grant from the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Administration to be
used for firefighter safety.

Village On The Isle residents award scholarships


Committee of the Committee: Linda Scheridan, chairwoman,
Betty McMillin, Dick Downing and Bob Nicholson led the schol-
arship committee. Other members are: Doreen Berda, Roy
Helge, Anne Hoffman, Esther Lane, Irene Mahar, Don Ross and
John Sell.


BYGREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Residents ofVillage On The
Isle presented $39,000 in
scholarships to 13 individuals
at the May 22 awards presen-
tation in Mathew Hall. It was
the largest amount awarded
in the 20-year history of the
program.
Venice's first retirement
center, Village On The Isle 'is
one of the very few in the
region that gives scholarships
to its employees, said Scho-
larship Committee Chair-
woman Linda Scheridan.
Except for two nurse's
aides seeking to further their
certification, scholarship re-
cipients are all Venice High
School students who work in
the Hibiscus and Mary dining
rooms as wait staff.
Contributions were made
by nearly 200 out of 410 resi-
dents of Mathew Hall, the
independent living center,
and Trinity Hall, the assisted
living center, said Bob Nich-
olson of the scholarship
committee.
"We're the best kept secret,"
Nicholson said. He estimates
over the years Village On Thhe
Isle has awarded more than


100 scholarships.
"We wanted to give resi-
dents credit for what they do
for kids. This has been kept
under a blanket. It's time to
uncover it and show it off," he
said.
"For 20 years this scho-
larship program has been
shrouded in antiquity," said
Dick Downing, another com-
mittee member.
"By helping these young
people attain their goals for
the future, the residents are
able to thank them for their
kind and caring service,"
Scheridan said.
Family affair
Staff member Judy Voigt
initiated the program 20 years
ago when she asked the Isle
Auxiliary Committee to con-
sider offering scholarships.
The Auxiliary Committee
established a Scholarship
Committee, and the annual
fund-raising effort began.
The Scholarship Commit-
tee is made up of six mem-
bers from each of two resi-
dential halls, one represent-
ing each floor. They send a
letter each year to every resi-
dent encouraging donations
they call Celestial Callings in


memory of a loved one.
The Silver Foxes of the
Venice Little Theatre kicked
off the fund-raising in earnest
this year with an April fund-
raising performance.
Any one of the committee
members can tell you who
the awardees are, what their
parents do for a living and
where they hail from (this
year's winners are originally
from, among other places,
Thailand, Latvia, South Pa-
cific, Ukraine and Venezuela).
Then there's Mike Don-
elan. He won a scholarship
in 1984 from Village On The
Isle, and has been working
there ever since. Today,
Donelan heads the dining
staff as food service director.
Hans Webber, also a for-
mer scholarship winner,
works at VOTI as head chef.
Webber used his scholarship
to earn certification as a


dietary manager at VOTI.
Youths like working at
VOTI so much there's a wait-
ing list for those seeking
employment at the residen-
tial center, which doesn't
advertise for wait staff. Most
hear about a job by word of
mouth from their friends.
Many come back, especially
those who go to college near-
by, said Nicholson.
This year somd of the stu-
dents dropped by Village On
The Isle on prom night to
show off their gowns and
limousines.
"They become part of the
family," said Sheridan. "It's a
family affair. We're proud of
them."
"We feel like we're all the
kids' grandparents," Nichol-
son said.

Two-car wreck



leaves two dead


The crash that killed an Englewood teen
and a Port Charlotte man in South Venice crash
also leaves investigators with questions
about which car crossed- the median.


BYTGAVINOFF
STAFFWRITER


An Englewood teenager
and a Port Charlotte man were
killed early Friday morning in:
a violent, two-vehicle wreck in
which one car crossed the
grassy median of U.S. 41 and
into oncoming traffic.
V alerie J. Moore, 17, and
Marc A. Monetti, 39, died at
2:15 a.m., when one of the dri-


vers cut across the median on
U.S. 41 near timberline Boul-
evard in South Venice.
Details of the crash were
still unclear at press time,
,Florida Highway Patrol Lt.
Doug Dodson said.
"The actual complexity of
how the crash occurred (is
unknown)," Dodson' said.
"The causation of who did
what, I don't know."
An investigation of the

crash site and witness reports
is continuing.
Police believe Monetti was
traveling south on U.S. 41 near
Timberline Boulevard and
Moore was headed north,
after dropping off her boy-
friend in North Port. Moore
was driving a 2000 Ford.
Monetti was in a 1991
Chevrolet.
But they were uncertain of
the cause of the crash. An ini-
tial accident report from the
Florida Highway Patrol on
Friday morning was rescinded
late Friday afternoon.
Moore, who just completed
10th grade at Venice High
School, had ended a late shift
at the Sonic Drive In on U.S.
41, where she worked since it
opened in June of last year.
She began working more late
shifts at the Venice restaurant
since school let out last week,
said her mother, Allison
Moore of Fairless Road in
North Englewood.
Moore clocked out at mid-
night Thursday, said Sonic
manager David DeVault. She
likely stayed to chat with
friends, family members'
said.
"She was a great worker,"
DeVault said. "She'd do any-
thing you ask, all the time.
She'd even stay late."

Venice when her car and'a car driven by Marc Monetti, 39, of Port Charlotte, collided on U.S. 41

band, Charles, stopped by
Sonic at around 10:40 p.m.-
Moore was on break and get-
ting ready to go back to work
at the time.
"I looked back and she was
putting her hair up in a pony-
tail," Allison Moore said
Friday afternoon.
Moore worked with her
boyfriend of a month, Mich-
ael Meliti, whom family
members said she dropped
off following their shift. Meliti
is a student at North Port
High School.
"She put herself last,"
Meliti said. "She was every-
thing I could ask for."
Family members said
they'll remember Moore for


her strawberry-red hair and
her love for animals she
had one cat and six dogs.
She was a former volun-
teer at Sarasota's St. Francis
Animal Rescue, where she
helped orphaned kittens
nurse.
She also played the clarinet
in the high school concert
band and was a member of
the color guard in the march-
ing band.
Moore recently tried out to
be a captain.
"She loved those flags," her
mother said. "This: hasn't
sunk in yet. I'm still waiting
for her to walk through the
front door."
Moore attended Engle-


wood Elementary School and
Laurel Nokomis School
before attending high school
in Venice.
She planned to attend vo-
cational school in Sarasota
during her senior year and
showed interest in going into
law enforcement.
Moore is survived by her
mother, father and 19-year-
old brother, Jordan. Funeral
arrangements have yet to be
made.
Monetti lived on James-
town Street in Port Charlotte.
His family could not be
reached for comment.

Safety and appearance standards dash at ARB


Board members are unable to approve
the appearance of a balcony railing


that city has ruled unsafe.

BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Architectural Review Board
is. all about making sure Ven-
ice buildings maintain the
city's historic and Italian-
theme feel.
Instead of appearance
standards, ARB members
were more concerned Thurs-
day morning about making a
balcony railing safe again.
Much as their counterparts
on the Municipal Code En-
forcement Board have discov-
ered, there just wasn't enough


information for a positive rul-
ing on an apartment complex
at 207 North Harbor Drive
owned by Richard Neuen-
schwander.
There were no architect-
ural renderings or engineer-
ing specifications, just an
artist's picture of what the
railing and apartment build-
ing which has code viola-
tions dating back to Novem-
ber 2003 might eventually
look like.
Though the members were
not sure, it appeared as if
some of the new railing would


be bowed wrought iron on the
apartment's balcony and re-
main straight wood railings
on the stairwell.
"We don't know what
we're passing," vice chairman
Jon Steketee told contractor
Ken Chlebina of KLC Inc.
Chlebina admitted he was-
n't involved in any of the plan-
ning or designs, and only
found out a day before the
ARB meeting the owner want-
ed him to go in his place. As
for the evidence presented
for approval of appearance
standards, Chlebina said he
was just now seeing them and
couldn't answer many of the
questions from ARB.
City Attorney Wayne Hall,
who advises both the ARB and


Municipal Code Enforcement
Board, urged leniency so the
second-floor railing would
finally be replaced.
Shut-down averted
Neuenschwander has ac-
cumulated $8,812 in building
code violation fines, many of
them connected to the unsafe
railing. Code inspectors flag-
ged the railing because the
metal had rusted away in
parts and was not attached to
the balcony in several sec-
tions.
Building and Code Enforce-
ment Director Hans Behrens
explained to ARB what the
building department and
code board is looking for.
"We're talking about a rail


system that will withstand
force of 250 pounds, people
leaning against it and that
children will not fall through,"
Behrens said.
Other violations have been
for offensive accumulations
like trash piled up and viola-
tion of minimum housing
standards. The code board
threatened to shut down the
nine-unit apartment complex
in April if Neuenschwander
did not fix the problems.
The fines have stopped for
now because building per-
mits have been applied for.
Complicating matters is
that the apartment building
is in the Venetian Theme
District on the island, mean-'
ing it must adhere to strict


appearance standards tha
also tend to be expensive. 4:
ARB sided with the city
attorney and offered leniency,
in the interest of installing :a
safe railing. It tabled the ap-
plication until the June 23'
meeting, and decided the
stairs and balcony must be the
same style in order to grant;
approval.
As for materials, it could be
wood, metal or wrought iron
- as long as it's uniform in,
style and close to Venetian'
Theme standards. Members:
will vote, after reviewing the.
building materials and actual
design drawings, in June.

No water for Tarpon
Center condos

City of Venice Utilities
crews fixed a broken 2-inch
potable water service line at
1275 Tarpon Center Drive
Friday, creating a water outage
there for a short time.
People in the 34-unit con-
dominium at that address


should use boiled or bottled
water for drinking and cook-
ing until Monday, May 30, at
2:30 p.m. Those affected were
notified with written informa-
tion at their doors.
For more information, call
480-3333.
Minor sewage spill reported
City of Venice Utilities


crews responded to a blocked
sewage lateral in the 200 block
of Bay Shore Circle at 9:15 a.m.
Friday.
While cleaning the block-
age, 25 gallons of sewage
leaked into an area created
to contain it. Five gallons of
the leakage overflowed the
original containment area
and made its way to a catch


basin near Roberts Bay.
Although there was no evi-
dence of any sewage going
into the bay, the city took
samples of the bay for col-
iform analysis. The lateral
repair and cleanup of the
minor spill was complete by
2 p.m.

"Being prepared for hurri-
cane season can protect prop-
erty and save lives," said Bush.
"I hope this tax benefit will en-
courage Floridians to ready
themselves, their families,
homes and businesses for the
2005 hurricane season ...."


Florida taxpayers will save
about $10 million during this
sales tax holiday.
Under the legislation, no
state or local sales tax will be
collected on certain hur-
ricane-preparedness items
from 12:01 a.m., June 1,
through midnight, June 12.
Items exempt from sales tax
during this period include:
Portable electrical gener-
ator costing less than less
than $750.

weather-band radios, tarpau-
lins, flexible waterproof sheet-
ing, ground-anchor systems
and tie-down kits less than
$50.

Townhouses


proposed near


Alligator Creek


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER
A proposed development
near Alligator Creek in South
Venice would add 220 town-
house units and 78 boat docks
to a stretch of land bordering
the LntracoastalWaterway.
The proposal has drawn
disapproving reviews from the
Lemon Bay Conservancy, a
preservation group.
SThe project, proposed by
Georgia developer Frank
Goodrich, would have 16
townhouses on some 40 acres
of mangrove swamp, pine
flatwoods and exotic wetland
hardwoods.
The townhouses would
rise about 48 feet above the
ground and be bordered by
the Intracoastal Waterway to
the west, Hibiscus Road and
Shamrock Drive to the east
and the Shamrock Park and
Nature Center to the north.
: The development would
include four pools, two sets of
tennis courts and clubhouses,
drawings show.
Questions
: The first application to the
Southwest Florida Water.
Management District was
submitted April 6. The district
'eplied with a list of several
questions.
: According to a Swiftmud
report, missing information,
included:
* The $2,500 application
processing fee
'* Ways to reduce adverse


effects on the site
A proposed mitigation plan
Measures to prevent oys-
ter bed damage.
Assurances that construc-
tion will not adversely effect
or impede navigation and
boat traffic
'All of those need to be
addressed," said Michael Mol-
ligan, Swiftmud spokesman.
The developer has until
early June to respond to
Swiftmud's concerns.
Molligan said the project
would affect more than 26
acres of wetlands. The devel-
oper would then have to cre-
ate, preserve, enhance or re-
store different wetlands with-
in the same service area.
"As important, if not more
important (than the amount
of wetlands), is their func-
tion," Molligan said. "Different
wetlands provide different
functions."
Some benefits provided by
wetlands include habitat, a
collection area for runoff and
a drainage area for recharg-
ing the aquifer.
Possible damage to wet-
lands concerns the Lemon
Bay Conservancy, a nonprofit
organization designed to pre-
serve, protect and acquire nat-
ural areas important to main-
taining Lemon Bay and its
adjacent waters.
"We're very concerned
when a development project
is going to destroy natural
habitat on the water," said
Perry Cook, executive director
of the conservancy.


Red tide returns


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

Scientists at Mote Marine
Laboratory announced the
reemergence of red tide to the
area on Thursday, just before
the Memorial Day holiday
weekend.
According to Richard
Pierce, director of Mote's
Center for Ecotoxicology, the
effects of red tide are being
felt along Manatee and Sara-
sota counties.
Concentrations of the org-
anism increased this week to
high levels in New Pass and to
moderate levels in other areas
of Sarasota Bay.
Wilma Katz of the Coastal
Wildlife Club said she noticed
a slight irritation near Man-
asota Key earlier in the week,
but not Thursday.
"I felt that tickle," Katz said.
Sporadic accounts of respi-
ratory irritation' and dead fish
were reported throughout the
area, a Mote report stated.
"The weather forecast for
the weekend calls for more
westerly winds that could
intensify adverse effects of
the bloom on shore," Pierce
said.
Big, but not a record
Scientists discovered the
season's biggest outbreak Dec.
20. It stretched from Cedar
Key to Clearwater. '
By Feb. 2, it ranged from
Tarpon Springs to Englewood.
and about 50 miles into the
Gulf. By Feb. 23, it expanded
from northern Sarasota Coun-
ty to Fort lMyers, killing thou-
sands. of fish off Manasota
Key.
Mote reported the bloom
was gone March 30.
At one point, the recent
red tide contained more than
90 million red tide cells per
liter.
According to Mote, the


more cells per liter, the more
devastating the bloom's ef-
fects. The guideline is:
Fewer than 1,000 cells per
liter no effects;
5,000 cells per liter -
'shellfish harvesting closed;
S10,000 cells per liter -
respiratory irritation;
50,000 cells per liter -
respiratory irritation and pos-
sible fish kills;
More than 1 million cells
per liter respiratory irrita-
tion, fish kills and water dis-
coloration.
The longest reported out-
break in Florida floated in the
Gulf of Mexico in 1994 and
1995. The highest concentra-
tion in that red tide was mea-
sured at 300 million cells per
liter.

Sarasota County and The
Nature Conservancy have
partnered to protect a 21-acre
parcel of bayfront property
that serves as habitat for the
Florida scrub jay gopher tor-
toise and other rare species.
The deal was negotiated by
the conservancy, and the land
will be purchased by the coun-
ty through its Environment-
ally Sensitive Lands Protection
Program.
SThe new site adds to the
existing 185-acre Lemon Bay
Preserve, which includes a mix
of pristine scrub, pine flat-
wood, mangrove swamp and
tidal marsh habitats.
"Few opportunities remain
to protect waterfront property
in South Florida," said Ed


Freeman, field representative
for The Nature Conservancy.
"Here the county is not only
protecting the waterfront, it is
protecting wildlife habitat and
recreational opportunities for
the public as well."
To help fulfill the goals of
the Charlotte Harbor Estuary
Program, Sarasota County will
add property to county-own-
ed sites that help protect Lem-
on Bay and Charlotte Harbor.
The county's partnership with
The Nature Conservancy has
flourished with a succession
of recent land transactions.
To date, Sarasota County
has spent about $53 million of
local funds to protect almost
16,500 acres on 58 parcels
within the Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Protection
Program.

VETERANS from page 1A
didn't want to have children. I
just wanted to be in the
Army."
Joining the U.S. Navy was-
n't easy for women when
Sherrie Guccini signed up in
1964. There was only a hand-
ful of positions women could
fill then, and Guccini had to
undergo three days of testing
and two days of physical just
to get in.
But she wanted to join. Her
father had been in the service
duringWorld War II, and with
the war in Vietnam, Guccini
felt she needed to do her part.
In 1965, Guccini, who had
trained to be a hospital corps-
man for the Navy, left for the
Gulf of Tonkin on the hospital
ship USS Repose. Because of
the war in Vietnam, hospital
corpsman and nurses were
the only women the Navy was
sending to the area.
Guccini spent nine
months on the ship, caring
for wounded soldiers. There


were six operating rooms on
the ship, which she describes
as a "floating hospital," but
even inside, the sounds of
war were never far away.
"Everyone was afraid,"
Guccini said. "If you weren't,
there was something wrong
with you. We lost a lot of
friends there."
'You had to be better'
Guccini, who still doesn't
like to talk much about what
she saw in the Gulf of Tonkin
that year, left the Navy when
she became pregnant with
her first child. Women who
were pregnant or had chil-
dren were forbidden from
serving in the armed forces
then.
"If you got pregnant, you
were discharged within three
days," she said.
But she joined again in
1971 when the Navy started
allowing women with chil-
dren to enter the ranks.
During that same year, her
first husband, also a soldier,


was killed inVietnam.
For the next 20 years,
Guccini served on and off in
the Navy, as an X-ray techni-
cian and then as a recruiter.
She retired in 1991, eight
years after having achieved
the one goal she set for herself
in the Navy earning the
rank of chief petty officer.
Now an official with the
American Legion, Guccini is,
still proud of her work as a
recruiter and of her own
accomplishments in the mili-
tary.
"It wasn't equal for women
then," she said. "You just had
to be a little bit better."
'Why not'
Glory Specht, 74, joined
the U.S. Army in 1951, mostly
because she was bored with
the direction in which her life
was headed.
"My brothers went into the
service," she said. "And I
thought, 'Why not?' I had no
idea what I was getting into."
There weren't as many


opportunities for women in
the Army as there are now,
but Specht enjoyed her work
at an Army security agency.
She served for two and a half
years, until she married and
became pregnant in 1953.
But her stint in the military
prepared her for life as an
Army wife. Her husband was
in the Army for 28 years and
her family moved across the
globe for his work to coun-
tries such as Ethiopia, Austria
and Germany.
"I think you learn a lot
(from being in the military),"
she said. "There are a lot of
difficult things, and you learn
to overcome them."
A second life
Military training is what
Lori Blackburn, who spent
four years on active duty in
Germany and 10 years in the
Army Reserves after joining in
1987, believes keeps her
going.
Now 36, she was training to
go to Kosovo in 1997 when


she fell and broke her neck.
She had to have surgery and
things never seemed quite
right after that.
It wasn't until 2001 that
doctors realized her debilita-
tion stemmed from spin-
ocerebellar ataxia, a heredi-
tary disease that causes de-
generation of the spinal cord
and cerebellum.
A nurse, Blackburn had to
stop working and didn't know
what she was going to do with
her life. But on Sept. 11, 2001,
she turned on the TV just in
time to watch the second
plane hit the World Trade
Center. She had been feeling
sorry for herself, but she said
watching the attack made her
realize how stupid that was.
Because of her disease, she
could no longer serve in the
military or be a nurse, but
Blackburn decided there
were a lot of things she still
could do.
"That was the start of my
second life," she said. "With-
out the military, I don't think I


could survive in today's
world. You learn how to make
the best of a bad situation."
She joined the American
Legion she holds an office
at her post in North Port -
and started volunteering and
working out. Despite her dis-
ease, she works out three
times a week at Gold's Gym
and volunteers at the Douglas
T. Jacobson State Veterans
Nursing Home in Port Char-
lotte.
She still keeps her "dress
greens" pressed in her closet.
She doesn't fit in the uniform
anymore, but she's still proud
of it.
"I just was very proud to
put it on," she said, her lips
curving into a smile. "I miss
the uniform. I loved the disci-
pline. I love the way platoons
march. I miss everything."
Standing next to Black-
burn inside the North Port
American Legion last week,
Guccini nodded and said,
"We're proud to be veterans,
both of us."


YOUTH from page lA

day in school or doing chores
at home.
"(The bowling alley) was
fun at first, but now you can't
even walk outside," Marisa
said. "You're not allowed out-
side until your ride is there....
Me and my friends, if we
wanted to be under supervi-
sion, we would hang out at
home.
"We didn't go there to
bowl. They have an arcade,
but the fun thing, you could
hang out with your friends,
and that's all we want."


Most bothersome.
Wilczewski agrees there
are too few places for teens to
hang out inVenice. Today, he's
ready for the surge of teen-
agers into his bowling alley.
On top of the sheriff's deputy,
Wilczewski has added staff.
There are also numerous
summer specials for children
and teens. One involves one
free game every day of the
summer break.
The $5 admission charge
on Friday and Saturday
nights helps pay for the dep-
uty. Any teens who bowl have
that money go toward the
cost of games.
As he's made these chang-
es, however, the crowds have
gradually dwindled back
down to the regular 10-15
teens who show up to play
pool and video games, and he
hasn't even applied the cover
charge the last couple of
Friday.
Looking back, it wasn't the
actions of teens that bothered
him the most. It was the com-


plaints of parents about the
cover charge.
"What bothered me the
most was how the parents
would pull up, drop their kids
off and then just leave,"
Wilczewski said. "That makes
us liable for them because
we're private property. ... I
told them, you couldn't leave
your kids at home without
paying a babysitter. We can't
do it for free."
Teen options
Marisa's mother, Lisa
'Amato, understands the posi-
tion of bowling alley manage-
ment. She was amazed last
September at the large crowd
of teens one of the times she
drove there to pick up Marisa.
Problem is, there's' no-
where in Venice for teenagers
to go. Summer months are
too hot to be outside all day,
and it's 30 minutes north or
south for the nearest shop-
ping mall or movie theater.
A single mother raising
three teens while working full


time, Lisa isn't able to regular-
ly shuttle her daughter from
their South Venice home up
to the mall at Beneva Road
and U.S. 41, and SCAT buses
shut down service by 7 p.m.
each night.
"The kids have to really
time it right," Lisa said. "If
they're taking a bus to the
mall, there's a transfer in-
volved and bus service stops
(at 7 p.m.) You have to be
careful, or else you can get
stuck on Venice island."
South County Young Adult
Center Inc., 1400 Ogden
Road, Venice, opened in Jan-
uary as a place for teens to
hang out.
Marisa went there a couple
of times when it first opened
and felt as if, once again,
teens were being oversuper-
vised.
Megan O'Mahony, pro-
gram director of Young Adult
Center, suggests any teens
who feel that way should
come back. The adult-to-teen
radio was a bit overwhelming


at first, but that was because
organizers of the nonprofit
recreation center had no idea
how many teens would be
showing up.
Now, there are usually two
adults on hand and the center
averages 30-40 teens each
day. Summer hours are noon
to 8 p.m. Monday through
Friday.
"We give them their
space," O'Mahony said. "But
we are finding, when we're
with them, theywant us to do
what they're doing. Like when
they're playing pool, they'll
say, 'Hey, you have to play
whoever wins this game.' "
We want movies
In Marisa's opinion, there
doesn't need to be another
youth organization formed or
fancy studies conducted by
government officials.
Venice just needs another
movie theater. She has her
eyes on Waterford Com-
panies and its plans to turn
the vacant Galleria Plaza strip


mall buildings of South Ven-
ice into a 12-screen movie
theater.
Waterford spokeswoman
Michele Lamond said Friday
that design plans are nearly
finished and then applica-
tions for building permits
with Sarasota County will be
filed. The company hopes to
have the theater opei for
business by Christmas.
"Personally, I loved the
movie theater; that's what I
really want," Marisa said. "It
was so much fun atthe movie
theater because there was
everything there. Now, there's
a Lowe's there when you've
already got a Home Depot.
Like you need two of those
and no movie theater.
"A new theater (at Galleria
Plaza), that would be so great.
And it'd be right across the
street from me. Now, that
would be awesome."

District: Errors were made

in special needs case

SA parent complaint leads the district and VHS to
take a closer look at how they handle students
with special needs.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County School
District officials visited Venice
High recently to review pro-
cedures for educating stu-
Sdents with special needs.
The district recommended
a number of procedural
changes. It also held face-to-
face meetings with school
personnel handling the case
of a visually impaired student
whose father complained his
son didn't received accom-
modations promised since
last year under federal Ex-
ceptional Student Education
rules.
Mark Laneve said his son
failed courses and didn't
graduate because of it.
His son's partial blindness
was brought on by a stroke at
9 months of age. Recurring
seizures also afflict the 18-
year-old.
Mike McHugh, director of
pupil support services for the
district, met with school staff
two weeks ago on a fact-find-
ing mission. Along with
Principal Candace Millington
and other staff, he reviewed
Laneve's student records and
procedures.
"We found some good
stuff, and some not so good
stuff," McHugh said.
"There were some over-
sights we will need to correct.
Like how we document (ESE
students) and track .wvien
recorders or tapes are ordered
and come in," McHugh said.
AFlorida Department of Ed-
ucation investigation, initiated
at the behest of Venice parent
Mark Laneve, is ongoing.
Complaint
Laneve's chief complaint


,J ...


was his son's name was omit-
ted from the list of ESE stu-
dents, leaving many of his
son's teachers unaware of his
visual impairment.
At the beginning of each
year a list is distributed to all
teachers apprising them of
students with special needs
or circumstances. Laneve's
name was supposed to ap-
pear on'a list of ESE students,
he said, but VHS educators
admit it didn't make the list.
Laneve's son had been in
the program for years, since
he attended Laurel Nokomis
School, but during his transi-
tion to Venice High somehow
his name was dropped.
Among the accommoda-
tions that were checked off on
Laneve's IEP that might be
provided are large-print
books or taped books; ex-
tended time for assignment
completion; copies of tests in
large print; being allowed to
write directly on the test
instead of an answer sheet;
additional time for tests; and
a volunteer reader for materi-
als not provided in large print
or by tape.
"None of this happened,"
said Laneve.
Changes
Once the complaint was
filed, Laneve's name was 'dis-
tributed to all staff within a
week and a textbook machine
that reads CDs aloud was pro-
vided to the student, officials
said.
McHugh said some of the
things done correctly by
school staff were ordering
specialized materials like.
large-print textbooks, con-,
ducting weekly consultations;
and reviewing learning strat'-
gies within general classes.

But there's room for im-
provement within each of
those areas.
McHugh said one of the
key changes that will need to
be made is the wayVHS noti-
fies school personnel about
students with exceptional
needs.
In addition to sending out
an annual letter to teachers
tha~its students with special
needs, McHugh wants the
school to attach each stu-
dent's Individualized Edu-
cation Plan page listing mod-
ifications that are supposed
to be made available to the
student by educators.
"By sending the IEP page
to each teacher, it's another
way to double check in case a
student's name is inadver-
tently left off the list. It's
another piece of paper that
gets put in front of the
teacher. This way they don't

office to find out what a par-
ticular student's exceptional
need is. In the future they will
do both," McHugh said.
McHugh admitted the
state's system for ordering
specialized materials through
its vision program isn't all it
could be.
"We are at the mercy of
Tampa when it comes to pro-
viding large print."
If a large-print textbook is
not on the shelf in Tampa
(where the vision center for
materials is located), or
another student has checked
the textbook out, it can take
months to get another copy.
When that's the case, school
staff is supposed to blow
them up on a copy machine,
he said.
"That wasn't happening as
consistently as it should be,"
McHugh said.
It was unclear if school

large-print books even knew

Won't happen again
McHugh would also like to
see the team of school staff
responsible for providing ser-
vices to exceptional students
take more responsibility for
tracking student progress.
"Staff were not aggressive
in seeking him out. We're the
adults. If a student is shy and
not prone to seeking help, we
need to seek the kids out.
That wasn't happening as
consistently as it should have.
It's not going to happen
again," McHugh said.
McHugh said he offered
Laneve and his son the option
of attending another school,
with the district providing the
transportation. But the
Laneves declined the offer.
The district also offered addi-
tional counseling.
"We're trying to get his son


graduated as quickly as possi-
ble," McHugh said.
Venice High School edu-
cated 223 students with
exceptional needs this school
year. The district educates an
estimated 7,100 ESE students
annually.

Brian Laninfa clutch for MSU Bulldogs


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Former Venice High base-
ball standout Brian Laninfa
might not have had the great-
est regular season hitting-
wise as a sophomore for the
Mississippi State Bulldogs,
but he was "Mr. Clutch" in
Saturday's Southeast Con-
ference game against Ten-
nessee.
Laninfa's double in the
bottom of the ninth inning
tied the game 2-2. Ben
Grisham pinch ran for La-
ninfa and scored the winning
run on a single by Jeff Butts.
The 3-2 win propelled
MSU into the SEC champi-


onship game, which will be
played at 4 p.m. Sunday at
the Hoover Met in Birming-
ham, Ala.
MSU (39-20) is the surprise
team of the SEC tournament.
The Bulldogs were seeded
just seventh but are 3-0 in
tourney play and headed to
their first title game since
2001.
Laninfa was a junior at
Venice High then. He was an
All-State outfielder for the
Indians.
Laninfa, who hit .259 dur-
ing the regular season, was a
designated hitter Saturday.
He was 0-for-3 when he came
up in the bottom of the ninth.
He drove a 3-2 pitch to left

center to plate the tying run.
Laninfa also contributed
to MSU's 6-2 victory over
South Carolina on Thursday,
going 1-for-3 with a RBI and
run scored.
Tim Orlosky saw his colle-
giate career end when South
Florida dropped a 9-3 deci-
sion to top-seeded Southern
Mississippi (41-18) in CUSA
Tournament action Friday.
USF finishes the season with
a record of 33-31. A day earli-
er, Orlosky hit his seventh
home run of the season in an
11-1 victory over Louisville.
Western Carolina saw its
season end at 33-23 with an
11-4 loss to Charleston (46-
12) Friday in Southern Con-


ference action. WCU dropped
a 7-2 decision to George
Southern on Thursday.
Freshman Steve Strausbaugh
ended the season in a slump;
going 0-for-ll in the three
tournament games.
Another Venice High
product A.J. Hiner is in
Grand Junction, Colo., for the
Junior College World Series.
Hiner is the starting short-
stop for St. Petersburg Col-
lege, one of 10 schools quali-'
fying for the JUCO tourna-
ment.
St. Pete, the Gulf Region
champ, will play its tourney
opener at 9:30 p.m. Sunday
against East champion Po-
tomac State (W.Va.).

My first inclination was to
simply ignore it. Write it off
as another self-absorbed
knucklehead who thinks the
universe revolves around
them and their personal agen-
da. However, the more I
thought about it, the more
infuriated I became and the
more I couldn't simply let it go.
It appears as if some brave.
soul has initiated a sniper
attack on Venice High Head
Coach Craig Faulkner by
sending letters to the parents
of kids in the Venice High
baseball program. It is an
anonymous letter, of course,
which reads in part, "Had
enough shenanigans at the
hands of the VHS head base-
ball coach?" It then goes on to
give a contact at the school
board and closes with "step
up and make a difference for
all of our boys at VHS."
The translation of this
sleazy, cowardly attack goes
something like this. I didn't
like what Faulkner did to my
little darling because he has
not yet developed into the
superstar I know he is and will
become.
I have a son who graduat-
ed from Venice High School.
He played four years in the
baseball program under
Faulkner. Did he always see
eye-to-eye with his head
coach? No. Did I, the baseball
daddy, always agree with his
head coach? No! That, people,
is life. I am not an apologist
for Craig Faulkner, nor does
he need me to be. We have


disagreed in the past and I
dare say we will disagree in
the future, but this kind of
vicious ambush simply cross-
es the line.
One of a parent's primary
responsibilities is to teach
our kids how to handle ad-
versity. Whatever takes place
within any given situation
we are charged with the
responsibility of helping our
kids turn adversity into a
positive life experience. The
greatest life lesson which
Baseball offers is how to han-
,dle things when they do not:
go our way, whether that be
on the baseball field or in the
dugout. Certainly the way to
handle conflict and/or dis-
agreement is not to engage in :
sniper attacks. You sit eyeball-
to-eyeball, man-to-man,
human-to-human and clear
the air.
Does Faulkner make mis-
takes? Absolutely, and here's a
clue for you all he'll make
more. He is an imperfect
human being in an imperfect
world just like the rest of us
and mistakes are part of what
we humans do best. But this
is a guy who is passionate
about this game that he loves,
passionate about the life
lessons which this game can
teach and when it comes to
instruction of the game, he is
unparalleled. He has much to
offer your little darling re--
gardless of whether or not
you see eye-to-eye as to the
role your little darling will
play in the program and I
dare say that he has "stepped
up and made a difference
for more boys at VHS" than
mommy and daddy self-
absorption ever will.
Faulkner is not alone. I
am sure every head coach at
Venice High has had a similar
type of experience. However,
it is my sincere hope that all
of you who received this
communique has given it its
proper due and placed it at
the bottom of the bird cage
where it belongs. After all, its
author was so full of passion
and conviction they couldn't
even sign it. What courage.

Most people think of golf
courses as benign, beautiful
places. But watch out, be-
cause danger lurks around
every comer.
Oh, I know there are cute
little animals that wander
around and pretty trees and
green grass, but there are also
palmetto bushes, pepper
trees and out of bounds
stakes everywhere.
None of this compares to
the abject horror of the park-
ing lot. People who normally
drive 30 mph and stay in the
right lane go NASCAR when
they get in a golf cart.
Recently, a couple of
friends of mine were in a
cart accident. Yes, I said cart
accident. They were struck
while in their cart. One of
them injured his neck and
hasn't played in a while now.
Golfers should try to re-
member that once you arrive
at the course, it's time to relax.
I see guys in a hurry all the
time and do you know where
it gets them? Nowhere. It's
going to take as long as- it
takes to play. Getting yourself
all knotted up because you
are rushing around trying to
get out doesn't make any
sense, you're not at Publix.

THE ZONE

There is no express lane, so
slow down.
I have played in many
games on the $10 tour, so
many I can't count. I used to
be one of those who are con-
stantly in a hurry. Get to the
course, hit some balls, bug
the starter to get me out ASAP
Golf really is a game that
requires you maintain your
cool. Read some of the better
golf books and they will all tell
you not to rush. Get to the
course.early, practice leisurely
and get ready to play.
Sometimes that just isn't
practical, as golfers who work

come .running in at the last
second and then get upset
when they have to wait.
Waiting is an integral part of
golf. If the course you're on is
busy, it is inevitable. If you
spend all day looking at your
watch, I promise you won't
be at ease and most likely
play poorly.
Lastly, 'a quick note to
players on the $10 tour, and
you know who you are. There
are a lot of guys who want to
go early and will do anything
to get out first. They will tell
you that they have a doctor's
appointment, a funeral, an
oil change, whatever. After
the round, if they play well,
'they will stay until dark to get
paid.
I personally prefer going
out near the back in these
games for one simple reason.
They don't pay until you fin-
ish. Nothing is more frustrat-
ing than sitting on a birdie all
day only to have one of the
last few groups come in and
steal your cabbage. It is better
to be the bringer of the car-
nage than the recipient of the
carnage. See ya.

'Agent' tells odd story to class


Phony veterans trying to steal glory from real war
heroes are an "epidemic," experts say, and Florida
leads the nation in these impostors.


BYGREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


STo history teacher Mere-
dith Masony, Jerry "Jack" Al-
bert's story sounded like it
would make a great experi-
ence for her students.
It was quite a story.
SIt was the story of a Navy
sailor who rose to a rank
equivalent to a vice admiral.
He then became a CIA
agent who worked with the
Navy SEALs, the Army Green
Berets and the Army Rangers
on secret missions in Viet-
nam.
And it was the story of a
harrowing escape from a
POW camp after three and a
half years of torture deep be-
hind enemy lines in North
Vietnam.
Masony's class was about
to begin a chapter on the
Vietnam War, and Masony
thought inviting Albert to
speak to the class would make
the lesson come alive.
But instead of learning a
lesson about heroism, the
students learned something
about exposing the truth.
And now, at least two
teachers and a half-dozen of
the students suspect the hero
was a phony.
Met in church
Masony said she met Al-
bert at her church, where he
worked as a secretary. He told
her he was still traumatized
by his experiences in combat.
"I'm sitting here eating this
stuff up," Masony said. "I told
him, 'I have 150 students that
would love to hear you speak.'
Albert agreed and Masony
invited several other classes
to attend his presentation,
which was given April 22.
SWithin days after the pre-
sentation, Masony and her
colleague, sociology teacher
Frank Campagne, contacted a
volunteer organization known
as the POW Network (pow
network.org). The organiza-
tion has investigated reports
of phony POWs for the past 16
years,
The teachers found a slew
of information on the net-
work about Albert. It included
complaints Albert claimed to
be a Navy SEAL and a POW
dating back to 2000 and 2002.
The reports include that
the state had issued Albert
vehicle tags that said "POW"
and "Purple Heart." But the
state later got the tags re-
moved, according to a July

2002 transcript from "Chan-
nel 13 Investigates," a pro-
gram that aired on the Tampa
Fox TV station WTVT.
The POW Network cited
Albert's military record, which
shows he served in the U.S.
Navy only from February
1963 to September 1964,
earning a rank of E-3, a rela-
tively low rank. He served on
the USS Mazama.
He earned no awards or
decorations and served no
foreign missions with the
Navy.
Albert was also investigat-
ed in May 2002 by the Cy-
berSEALs, another volunteer'
organization that exposes
phony SEALs. The allegation
was that Albert had claimed
in e-mais to be a SEAL team
member.
The investigation culmi-
nated in a series of e-mails
between Albert and the inves-
tigators.
After several rounds of
-denials, Albert wrote, accord-
ing to the site's e-mail record:
S"OK, you win. Poor try. I just
wanted it all to stop. ... I never
said I was a vice admiral nor a
POW, nor did I have a POW
plate. The only misrepresen-
tation that I made is that I was
a Navy SEAL and in team 6.
Again, it won't happen again."
In an interview at his
home, Albert said he "never
sent any apologies to any-
body."
However, during his pre-
sentation to Masony's history
class, Albert.claimed to be as-
sociated with the Navy SEALs
and a POW, the teachers said.
'Garbage detector'
Campagne, a sociology
teacher, served as a platoon
lieutenant in the Army's 101st
Airborne Division during the
Vietnam war. He was in-
country from 1970-7 LHe was
seriously wounded by a land'
mine.
He said he was preparing a
slide projector for his own talk
about his Vietnam experience
as Albert began his talk.
Campagne soon began to feel
some things Albert was say-
ing didn't jibe.
"My 'garbage detector' was
going off like crazy," Cam-


pagne said.
He said he questioned Al-
bert's claim to have trained
with the SEALs, Army Rangers
and the Green Berets.
"There's no human being
that could go through all
three," Campagne said.
In an interview later, Albert
explained, as a CIA agent, he
had gone through parts of the
training with special forces
groups, but did not complete
it. For example, he said, he
was sent through paratrooper
school at Fort Bragg, where
Army Special Forces get
trained.
Campagne said he knew of
only two CIA programs oper-
ating in Vietnam. They were
Air America, in which a CIA
front flew charter planes from
the Golden Triangle, and
Phoenix, which involved as-
sassinations.
He said he asked Albert
which operation he was in-
volved in.
"That's classified," Albert
replied.
No proof
Albert told the class he was
captured while on a secret
mission in North Vietnam in
1968 and spent three and a
half years as a POW. He said
he was kept in a 4-foot-tall
bamboo cage. Periodically, he
was immersed in water or tor-
tured.
The torture included beat-
ings, rapes and getting finger-
nails pulled out, he told the
class.
Albert, in the later inter-
view, said there was no record
of his imprisonment because
he was "civilian," not military.
He also said he thought he
was captured in Cambodia,
not Vietnam. He said he
couldn't remember the
names of the soldiers he was
with.
"It was a special-ops
group," he said. "It wasn't
Green Berets. I think it was
Airborne Rangers, if I'm not
mistaken."
S;'He said after three years,
he was able to vault a 7-foot-
tall bamboo wall using a
bamboo pole to escape.
He didn't know which di-
rection he ran, only the direc-
tion his pursuers were com-
ing from "behind me," he
said.
He said he was rescued
after he found the Marines 1st
Division and went on to

spend 42 years as a CIA oper-

Albert said he can provide
no proof of his career. He said
"the Agency" told him he
could not reveal any informa-
tion 'or he "won't be here
much longer."
He said photos of himself
with comrades were lost
when his mother sold his
footlocker along with other
belongings years ago.
He said he had his pension
"taken away" because he
talked about his experiences,
violating Agency rules.
He said he "lived every-
where" during his career, but
he declined to specify where.
During his April presenta-
tion, one student asked Albert
what kept him going through
his years of torture.

CHECK THEM OUT
Suspected false claims of POW
status in Vietnam or of
unearned medals can be
checked at pownetwork.org.


He pointed to his wife,
June Albert, who was stand--
ing nearby. Thinking about
"that woman" saved his life,
he said.
Albert, who had previously
been married to someone
else, married June Albert a
few years ago.
Students' questions
The students appeared to
be enthralled by Albert's tale,
Masony said. She recalled
that Albert, who was wearing
dark sunglasses, kept wiping
away tears with his hand, as if
he was reliving traumatic ex-
periences.
Later, as doubts about Al-
bert's credibility took hold,
Masony said, her "skin began
to boil."
However, several of the
students said they took the
presentation with a grain of
salt.
"You couldn't believe it,"
Nicole Lamorte said. 'It just


didn't seem right at all."
"He made it sound like a
movie," Charlene Daniels
said. She said as a member of
the school's track team, she
questioned how Albert could
have pole-vaulted over a wall
to escape without practice.
"I thought it was kind of
fishy," added Courtney Mc-
Gill. "I mean, why was he
wearing sunglasses?"
Chris Velez, a U.S. Air Force
ROTC member, said he was
"rather angry" over Albert's
story.
"The fact that he talked up
the thing I wanted to do and
to find out it was all a lie made
me angry," he said.
"It's just bizarre, and the
fact he goes into these
schools is just despicable,"
said Mary Schantag, who
along with her husband
Chuck, runs the Missouri-
based POW Network, a group
'that records Vietnam POW
history.
Schantag said it's easy to
check phony POW reports.
Military records can be ob-
tained from the federal rec-
ords center in St. Louis. And
the Pentagon has published a
list of all POWs.
The list includes covert
operatives, civilians and even
foreign nationals who were
captured while working with
U.S. forces, she said.
To date, the POW Network
has uncovered no case where
a bona fide POW was left off
the list, Schantag said.
Albert is not on the list.
Numbers growing
People pass themselves off
as war heroes typically to
inflate their egos. Some also
bilk the government out of
health services, .disability
checks or tax breaks, Schan-
tag said.
Phonies are found in all
walks of life. They can be
politicians, police officers or
garbage collectors, the inves-
tigators say.
"They can't do without the
,recognition; they can't do


without people thinking
they're heroes," Schantag
said.
She said the numbers of
phony heroes began to in-
crease after the first Gulf War
and is growing rapidly now.
S"It's an epidemic," Schan-
tag said. "I've had two dozen
reports (of phony POWs) this
week alone, and it's only the
middle of the week."
"Florida is the No. 1 state
for, these individuals," said
Greg Platt, a former Navy
SEAL who volunteers as an
investigator for Aunthenti-
SEAL.
Platt said his organization
has proven Albert's stories
false in the past. He puts no
credibility in Albert's revised
versions.
"His story is so full of it that
it stinks to here," Platt said.
"He's no POW. This guy is
nothing but a liar. He's been
busted before. Now he's get-
ting busted again."
Wearing a fake uniform or
insignia, forging military cre-
dentials, or using false cre-
dentials to obtain a benefit is
a violation of federal law. But
the group's investigators say
they have had problems per-
suading FBI agents to prose-
cute.
There is no law against ly-
ing about one's military ex-
ploits.
Platt served five years in
the Navy, including four on
an underwater demolition
'team that conducted mis-
sions in Vietnam and the
Philippines.
Real elite-force veterans
know the commitment it
takes to complete weeks of
intense training and execute
extremely dangerous mis-
sions for two-year tours.
That's why SEALs regard
phonies as "a slap in the face
to every one of us," Platt said.
"Why don't we just start
making everybody a SEAL?"
he asked. "Why don't we get
buckets of Medals of Honor
and sell them on the corner
for $10?"'

OUR VIEW



Take a moment to remember our vets


tomorrow is a day to honor our armed
forces and the men and women serving
.in every branch of the service, wherever
they may be, whenever they served. It is a day
to remember the men and women who
fought for our independence more than 200
years ago. It is a time to honor those in uni-
form who are risking their lives every day in
the search of democracy.
It is a day to remember the statues in front
of county courthouses and why they were
placed there. Regardless of our political
beliefs, it is a day for us all to honor those who
are in Afghanistan and Iraq.
There will be no mail delivery. The banks
will be closed. Other services will also be cur-
tailed. Many employees do not have to report


to work.
Instead, it is a day to pause, to reflect on
what this holiday means. Veterans groups
have scheduled various services to remem-
ber those who have given their lives to pro-
tect our nation.
Honoring our men and women who have
fallen on alien soils, unfortunately, has not
been an easy task.
Decades ago, "Decoration Day" was
always commemorated on May 30, regard-
less of the day of the week. There were com-
munity parades of veterans groups, school'
children and musical organizations. There
were speeches. There were community pic-
nics. Everyone wore a red poppy.
The day goes back to the Civil War,


although its national recognition is much
more recent.
Then, in 1971, the National Holiday Act
was passed, which created three-day week-
ends for several holidays including the
fourth Monday of May for Memorial Day. It
has taken away some of the tradition of the
day. But not all of it.
As one way to remember the day, the
National Moment of Remembrance resolu-
tion was passed five years ago. It suggests that
at 3 p.m., local time, the nation stop "to vol-
untarily and informally observe in their own
way a moment of remembrance and respect,
pausing from whatever they are doing for a
moment of silence or listening to 'Taps.' "
We hope that whether you're one of the


few required to work tomorrow or you are
enjoying a day of relaxation with your family,
you will take a respite at 3 p.m. to.remember
that the freedoms that we enjoyweren't given
to us; that men and women before us and
men and women today are protecting those
freedoms, whether they are doing so in war
zones or in our own cities.
Memorial Day does not end at midnight.
Many young men and women who took part
in high school and college graduations with-
in the last few days will soon be committing
themselves to protecting us. And some won't
be coming this way again.
A moment at 3 p.m., to remember our
ancestors, to give thanks for those fighting
today. It's not too much to ask.


The U.S. 19




syndrome


BOB VEDDER


People in Pinellas County
have lamented that they have
not constructed a parallel
route to U.S. 19. They have
one huge bottleneck.
Their road is among the
Top 10 most dangerous roads
in America. For them it is too
late now. Will it be too late for
Sarasota County? Will we be
focused on water so much
that the future of road traffic
will be left unattended to?
Will the 2050 plan make it
impossible to have a north-
south road? Will the NIMBY
syndrome doom extending
roads through or near devel-
opments? Have real estate
costs made it impossible for
us to afford to build the roads
we need? Will there be
enough currency to allow us
to reach concurrency?
This problem is the largest
that faces our county. We all
witnessed it last year as acci-
dents on 41 and the interstate
proved we don't have enough
alternatives to handle prob-
lems, let alone the regular
seasonal influx of traffic.
I was in a meeting. of
knowledgeable, involved citi-
zens this week pondering
growth and all its ramifica-
tions. Jeff Boone eloquently
outlined how concurrency -
that is, the ability to build
infrastructures to adequately
handle growth as it occurs -
is our biggest problem. He
pointed to the roads as the
biggest concurrency prob-
lem, particularly having alter-
native north-south routes.
Only a few years ago U.S.
41 Bypass was on the sched-
ule to be \widened; it was No. 2
on the list. Work was to begin
in 2006, after Business 41 was
complete. Unfortunately, it
got bumped and when they
looked at the cost to buy the
right of way they found it had
ballooned out of the ability to
finance it.
The extension ofHonore to
connect to Pinebrook has
been stalled and then compli-
cated by land no longer being
available. Rockley, which goes
through Plantation, is to ex-
tend through the new devel-
opments to the north, but no
one wants traffic through
their neighborhoods, so that
likely will meet resistance.
We need to get Jacaranda
extended to Laurel, which
would help when that section
of 75 is shut down which
seems to be very often.
Jackson Road is another
possibility. Knights Trail could


be a good north-south road
since much of the land is
owned by the county and the.
rest is not developed. Yet, as
Jim Ley said last week, it will
be hard to sell some of these
to commissioners because of
the 2050 concept.
The service level on many
of our, roads is C or worse.
That makes one wonder if we
are developing before we
have the infrastructure in
place, and whether we should
stop development where the
level of service is so poor.
Can we just keep building
and not have the roads to
handle the people? Logic
would say no.
It will take a lot of very hard
work and a pile of money big-
ger than a bunch of lotteries
to fix the problem. We should
convene the best of the best
to work on all fronts to help
identify and then' solve this
problem and maybe in the
meantime decide how to slow
the addition of traffic to al-
ready clogged roads.
Can Katherine Harris,
Lisa Carlton, Nancy Detert
and other representatives of
our area (for that matter, all of
Florida) work toward getting
Florida its fair share of high-
way funds? Without this hap-
pening we are likely not going
to see the kind of money
needed to get the job done. I
can't say I have seen any effort
on their part.
Sue and I often go to
Naples to see our son Todd
and his family, and it is nice to
see how they have just fin-
ished one north-south alter-
nate and are widening anoth-
er one. Maybe there is a
model there we could learn
from.
Time is slipping away on
whether we will be another
U.S. 19 kind of county.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Wouldn't trade airport traffic for more cars


Editor:
Almost every Sunday there is an item in your paper deni-
grating the existence of theVenice airport. I do not recall seeing
any items pointing out the considerable positive economic
and travel benefits of its presence.
Case in point is the front-page coverage of your reporters
who "just happened" to be at the airport and went for a walk
down the tie-down area. Did they try to charter a plane? Did
they try to rent a plane? Did they try to steal a plane? There is
very little that a small airplane can damage.
There is often some complaint about jet noise, often coming
from someone who has been here a while and liked it "the way
it was." Well,, the airport was built by the government in 1941-
1942 and used as a bomber-training base. Some noise is noth-
ing new.
The moral here is very evident: If you do not like noise and
unless youwere one of few hundred Venice residents when the
airport was established, you should not have built (or bought)
near its approach and departure paths. Zoning to prevent this
obviously was not in place.
I suppose there is considerable pressure from developers
who would like to build high-rise shoreline condominiums.
The rest of the flat ground could be flooded with several hun-
dred houses. But complaints about vehicular traffic on the,
island? Be careful what you wish for.

New self-defense law
gives us fighting chance
Editor:
-Venice Gondolier Sun polit-
ical cartoonist Neseman's left-
wing views are amusing at
times and annoying at others.
I was annoyed about his view
of the new StandYour Ground
Law, and how he poked fun at
something many of us take


very serious: keeping our-
selves and our families safe. If
Neseman cannot handle such
a task, should we all just give
.in to the criminal element
also?
How many more young
girls in Florida will have to be
kidnapped, raped and mur-
dered before people who
think like Neseman will real-
ize that we live among de-
mons who could do such
things to our children? This
new law gives us Floridians a
fighting chance to protect
those, who are dear to us,
without having to apply for a
second mortgage to retain a
defense lawyer.
Neseman cites a.38 Caliber
handgun in his cartoon, but
as the law was written before,
a defender could get in just as
much trouble if he merely
whacked a home invader
with a baseball bat. The vic-
tim was, required to retreat
first, before using force to
stop an attack.
This would be extremely
difficult with a house full of
children. What would one do
if he or she is carjacked with a
baby strapped to the back
seat?

Federal bill would
target predators
Editor:
I would like to urge all con-
cerned about the protection
of children from sexual pred-
ators to contact their repre-
sentatives and senators to
support the Hatch-Foley bill
by making known and con-


victed predators wear ankle
bracelets so that their where-
abouts would be known, and
establishing DNA databases
all over the country.
Convicted predators
would be required to give
samples for the DNA databas-
es upon arrest. This would
also help to apprehend
predators who rape women.
For all who want further
protection for their children,
maps should also be available
to show where these preda-
tors are residing near a
school, your home, etc.
Let's not wait until another
child is abducted, abused and
murdered before we contact
our legislators requesting
passage of this bill now.

Withhold names
of youth offenders

Look at these two head-
lines in the Gondolier Sun:
Student high when arrested
and City council members:
Venice needs more youth.
In the "student high" arti-
cle, an outstanding Venice
High school student is nam-
ed, and the story of her arrest
for drug possession is told in
graphic detail. What is this
young woman to do now, as

DO? CALL US AT 2071111.

Replacing sand is a waste of money


Sand a waste. Shame on the state of Florida for allowing all
of this beach nourishment. Let nature as it is. If that's the way
the water comes up, leave it alone instead of ruining all the sea
turtles. You pollute enough and ruin enough sea life. Let's get
some laws passed where we preserve something before it's all
gone. We don't need all that sand on the beach. There's enough
places for people to walk and lie in the sun. Shame for ruining
Mother Nature with your silly projects and the waste of money.
All you rich people who need property frontage you should-
n't have built that close to the beach. Back off to where you're
supposed to be.


Slow burns. I would like to
make a comment on the 463-
acre controlled burn sched-
uled for 2 miles east of 1-75:
Does anyone realize how
much life is being killed? All
the nesting birds this time of
year? It's unbelievable. I just
don't understand this.
Tally? I don't mind the
three times a week, but I
would love a Saturday paper
rather than a Sunday. And I
noticed someone asked if
anyone was keeping track of
the calls, and I wonder if
someone is keeping track of
the total. But I am for a
Saturday paper, whether it's
two or three days a week.
Can't relax. You have ruin-
ed our weekends. We have
always looked forward to our
Saturday mornings relaxing
With the Gondolier Sun and
on Sunday with the. Herald-
Tribune. Now we cannot relax
on Saturday, and Sunday is
too much with two large pa-
pers plus going to church.
Please bring back the Satur-
day Gondolier Sun.
Ride the bench. I'm in favor
of benches at the bus stops,
and I think that businesses in
the area should donate these
benches with advertisements
on them. I think it's done in
other cities and it would be
good for those who have to
ride the bus.
Bad neighbors? I'm calling
in regard to Disgraceful's
comments in Let'em Have It. I
don't know what dental office
this person tried to go to, but I
work in a dental office in this
area. I work 40-50 hours a
week, five days a week, nine
hour shifts. We take emergen-
cies, we take other dentists'
emergencies and walk-in
emergencies. Either this gen-
tleman didn't look very hard or
he's just got real bad neighbors.
Keep it coming. There's
plenty of news in our area to
fill three days of the newspa-
per. Please keep it coming.
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
might be better, but I'll take it
anytime.
Many to thank. I was in-
volved in a bad accident on
41. I would like to thank all
the people who came to my
assistance, including two


young people that came over
to witness that it was not my
fault and to help me out. The
young lady offered to drive
me wherever I wanted to go.
The young man was very
helpful and consoling. As far
as the police, I don't think it
was even six minutes and
they were there. The wrecker
driver even took me to the
dealership where I wished to
go. So I wish that people
would stop bashing and bad-
mouthing people, because
there are a lot of good people.
And I just want to thank
everyone who helped me. As
far as the other driver, well,
that's another story. He was
ticketed for many violations.
Yummy. I'm a cancer sur-
vivor, and I want to compli-
ment the people who cooked
the ziti dinner at Relay For
Life. The ziti was al dente, the
sauce was' hot, the salad was
excellent. I know they put a lot
of hard work into that, whoev-
er did it, so my hat's off to the
cooks that made that dinner.
Thankyou so much, because it
felt good to get a good, good,
good Italian meal.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Your benefac-
tors were the Sons of Italy, who
have prepared and donated the
meal for the Survivors Dinner at
Relay for the last several years.
An option. I think it's won-
derful that Sarasota Memorial
Hospital will be building a
satellite hospital in Venice.
Unfortunately, according to
many people who go there,
our hospital has been going
down for several years. Clean-
liness has been a problem
and service has been low. One
friend even told me she had a
roach in her room and no-
body would bother to help
her get it. Sometimes people
have been afraid to get taken
there and would rather go to
Sarasota. Also, the people that
voted for our president
should wake up to the fact
that they voted for high gas
prices because of his personal
interests, and it was his per-
sonal revenge that got us into
war. Wake up, voters.
Just once. I not only don't
want all these papers every
week, I just want the weekend
edition. I just moved and

already here I failed to get the
first day's paper, and now
there's no paper again. I'd like
to have a Saturday paper and
you can keep all the others. I
don't have time to read them.
All you're doing is wasting
paper. Please discontinue
sending me all those papers.
I'll pay full subscription price;
I'm not looking for any deals.
Just send me the paper once a
week Saturday, no more.
Canceled. I've been read-
ing about the people com-
plaining about getting the
paper an extra day a week.
When I found out the
Gondolier Sun was going to
three days a week, I canceled
my Sarasota Herald and start-
ed subscribing to the
Gondolier Sun. If they want to
get a Saturday paper, why
don't they just save Friday's
paper and read it Saturday?
Neat folks. It's amazing to
me a true Florida native,
someone who was born here
and raised here that people
can come down from Pen-
nsylvania, Michigan, New Jer-
sey, Minnesota, etc., buy a
house, live here three years
and then start complaining
about northern visitors and
how they're being so rude and
nasty, and they all ought to go
back home. Truth is, even
though you say we don't need
them for revenue, we do need
them for revenue. So why notl
just run the bad ones off?
Because many of them are
neat folks, just like you. You
didn't change because you've
lived here three years.
Quit crying. I have been
reading all the write-ups about
Pelican Pointe and the wall
along the Pinebrook Road
extension. It is just too bad how
those people feel. I play golf
and I agree with the decision
not to put a wall there. I play at
Waterford golf club. On Turn-
.berry No. 6, which runs along
Pinbrook Road just south of
Edmondson, there is 'no wall
and that par 3 is right along the
road. We don't have a wall and
more balls will go into traffic
than at Pelican Pointe. My
point is to tell those people to
quit crying. If they want a wall,
the people living there should
chip in and put one in them-
selves. Waterford people don't
crylike theydo, and accept how
things are going to be..
Off guard. I know hun-
dreds of people serviced by a
phone company are being
taken as I have been. They
were billing me for "Product
Guard" at $4 a month and
"Mr. Rescue Roadside Assis-
tance" at $3 per month. I don't
want either and never asked
for them. Everyone should
watch the service charges on
every monthly statement.
Good work. I like getting
the Gondolier Sun three days
a week. If the people don't like
to read it on Sunday, they can
read it on Monday. No big
deal. It goes both ways, you
know. You can always cancel
the Herald. I love the circulars,
especially Michael's. Thanks,
and keep up the good work.


Stopping growth easier said than done


BYJOHN SIMMONDS
GUEST COLUMNIST


Stop growth, period.
Don't allow any more of it;
kill the attorneys and devel-
opers and the city council
members who cause it. Don't
issue any more building per-
mits; don't annex any more
property; forbid high-rises.
It's ruining our city, so do
nothing and growth will stop.
We're here; slam the door and
don't let any one else in.
Everyone wants to stop
growth. Your city council
would like to figure out how.
Problem is, attorneys, de-
velopers, city council mem-
bers, planning commission-
ers, city staff and others don't
cause growth people do.
There are more than 1,200
folks every day coming to,
Florida looking for accom-
modations.
Additionally, folks are mov-
ing up from South Florida in
droves, as are foreigners look-
ing for bargains because of
the devalued dollar.
They all want housing at
reasonable prices; roads to
accommodate their increas-
ing numbers; shops in which,
to find their necessities and
luxuries; schools for their
kids; police protection; fire
departments; hospitals and
other health-care facilities;
churches; water and sewer
service; refuse pick-up; and
myriad other things we all
enjoy.
Obviously, to accommo-
date them more and more of
these things are needed, and


they cost "up-front" money.
Herb Levine and people
like him are useful to a com-
munity like ours. They keep
elected officials' feet to the
fire and help keep them fo-
cused.
If we didn't have a taxpay-
ers league and other similar
organizations like them, I
would advocate they be creat-
ed to watch government.
Lately, however, Herb is
beginning to sound like a bro-
ken record: "Stop growth,
stop growth, stop growth,
yadda yadda yadda."
Come on, Herb. We all
want to stop it. Tell us how
without the unacceptable
downsides.
I'm sure you will be quick
to try. I'm just as sure your
suggestions, unless they are
more novel than those you've
submitted in the past, won't.
work.
Let us suppose we did all of
the things that have been sug-
gested in the past: no annexa-
tions, no building permits, no
anything. What would hap-
pen?
First, housing would be
provided in the county, right
next to our city limits. New
people will still be here in the
same numbers, crowding our
facilities, beaches, roads, in-
tersections, police, emer-
gency care, etc.
We would still have the
cost of providing these ser-
vices and facilities, with no
accompanying revenue from
taxes, impact fees or, worst of
all, from revenue sharing.
Revenue sharing is sales


taxes, fuel taxes and tobacco
taxes divided by a formula
based on the percentage of
Venice population compared
to the total Sarasota County
population. It represents one-
third of the city's revenue.
When newcomers dispro-
portionately settle in other
cities or in the unincorporat-
ed county, we lose revenue
big time and property taxes in
the city go way up to replace
it.
We keep hearing that
growth does not pay for itself.
I have to scratch my head on
that one.
While I agree that prepara-
tion for growth takes a lot of
up-front money, I also have to
ponder why we have billions
and billions in assets, but only
a few millions in debt.
Where did that value come
from unless the people who
came here before us paid
their way?
People want to live in the
city ofVenice.
If we don't accommodate
them, the price of existing
housing will skyrocket more
than you can imagine within
the city limits and especially
on the island.
I don't like any of the
downsides of growth, but out-
side of outlawing air condi-
tioning I don't know how you
stop it.
Neither do the naysayers.

Venice MainStreet had its
annual meeting and gave
many awards to those who
had made Venice and the pro-
gram better. Of particular
note was a nice award to
Carol Fritsch, owner of The
Paper Pad, who has given of
herself unselfishly since the
inception of the organization.
Unfortunately, she has sold
her business, with the'
changeover coming in Sep-
tember. Her hard work and
exceptional talent will be
missed.
Kathy Crisman, another
stalwart worker, gave a spe-
cial award to Judy Lawrence,
who led the organization
through a very trying year of
financial challenges and per-
sonnel changes. Judy is going


to stay on as president anoth-
er year to work with Tom Op-
.sut, the new program manag-
er.

My dad belongs to a group
called the ROMEO's, which
stands for Retired Old Men
Eating Out. I think that is
great fun.

The MLS stats show that a
house in the Venice area went
from an average of $205,000
at the end of 2003 to $260,000
in the same quarter of '04.

Nice to see the medians
mulched. The landscaping
and trees really look great.
Now to tear down that awful
gas station on corner of
Indian Way.

When I was in Tallahassee I
noticed the city had an annu-
al neighborhood award for
the neighborhood that had
done the most to make its
area better.


There is such an award in
Sarasota County but it would
be good to have one in the
Nokomis/Venice/
South Venice area.
Maybe this could be part of
the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation ofVenice's way to
fpcus on the neighborhood,
which it has identified as an
important ingredient to im-
proving social capital.

Len Rosewarren gave me a
copy of the Mail from Eng-
land with all its fascinating
stories.
Someone brought me a lot
of papers from San Luis
Obispo that had wonderful
promotional ads. They also
had a page called "Go" with
what to do outdoors.

JOHN WILLIAM
"BILL" RYAN
John William "Bill" Ryan 66, a
resident of Venice, Florida, passed
away May 22, 2005.
He was born Sept. 6, 1938, and lived
in the Akron area most of his life.
He graduated from Barberton High
School.
Because of his warmth and
understanding, many considered
him "dad". He was known for his
"Far Side" sense of humor, and his
love of practical jokes.
Bill served in the U.S. Navy from
1962 to 1965 aboard the aircraft
carrier Bonhomme Richard as a
lithographer. He would say "Not a
single Viet Cong got past San Diego
during my hitch".
He worked as a salesman for
Nabisco and sold cars. He also drove
a cab in Las Vegas and worked for
Summit County as a
communications technician when he
retired.
Bill would joke that he lived longer
than Elvis, and new more women
than Liberace. He lived the last five
years of his life in Florida, where he
fished and lived a life of leisure. He
was most-proud of his grandson
Kade William, whom he referred
lovingly to as "my buddy".
He was preceded in death by his
father Tom Ryan and sister Donna
Gadel. He is survived by his mother
Marjorie, son Michael, daughter
Kellee (Kano) Keller, grandson
Kade, daughter Sherry (Steve)
Terrell, brothers Buddy, Mike
(Dana), Jim (Cheryl), and Shawn
(Niki), and many nieces and
nephews.
Bill's wishes were to be cremated
and for his ashes to be spread into
the Gulf of Mexico.
We miss you tremendously Dad and
you will forever be in our hearts.
A memorial open house will be held
Tuesday, May 31, 2005 at his
family's home in Venice.
For information please call Kellee at
(941) 915-1760.

IMPLANTS FOR DENTURES
There have been efforts for many years to develop a firmer foundation
for dentures. Specifically, efforts have been made to implant anchors
that would connect replacement teeth to the underlying bone as
securely as natural teeth are connected by their, roots. Research
advances have brought us to the point where implants, in some
situations, are the approach of choice.
Although conventional dentures generally do an excellent job of
replacing lost teeth, there are certain problems which may require a
different approach. If a denture is placed over a ridge that has become
thin and sharp, the concentrated pressure of chewing can cause
irritation and pain. There are also situations where, because of
accident, disease, surgery, or genetic defect, the jaws are unable to
support any conventional denture. If this occurs, implants can work
miracles, When indicated, they have proven to be the answer, and have
an excellent record of function, comfort, and esthetics.

Jieron Core Construction's

definition of a home:


"A place you look forward to going to,
a place to enjoy your family and surroundings.
It is a place that is quiet, solid, safe and secure.
It is a place that inspires confidence
in the wisdom of your choices."


STAFF REPORT
Gregory R. Leach, a contractor since
1978, is proud his company, Heron
Cove Construction, does not have a
punch list.
"We will not be rushed, quality takes
time. We will go to all ends trying to
assure (a punch out list) never exists.
We have told our customers for years,


, 1 &


'this is a turn key home, all you will
need is clothes, food, furniture and win-
dow treatments. We have built all else
you should every need or want."
Heron Cove Construction's office is
located at 1020 South Step Street, North
Port, Fla.

Why ajieron Core home? The contractor's perspective


At Heron Cove Construction, some of
the high building standards they adhere
to are:
SHurricane Straps
They more than double-nail all
hurricane straps to each truss.
Tie-beam
The tie-beam is on top of evenr.
concrete block structure. It is an
integral part of the block wall. There are
two ways to create a tie-beam, one is
called the "Form and Pour," arid the
other, a much weaker method, is called
the "pre-cast lintel" method. Heron
Cove Construction only uses the "Form
and Pour" method.

Model Hours are:
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday
and by appointment on
Sunday and Monday.


Drywall
Have you ever seen a drywall corner
bead come loose? How about a drywall
nail "pop?" Usually right in the middle
of a nice wall. In a Heron Cove home
the drywall is screwed to the walls, and
all the corner bead is clinched on, then
they go back and hand nail the corner
bead again.
Countertop and backsplash
They use furniture grade plywood in
their countertops and backsplashes, not
particle board, so there is no swelling
and loosening.
Driveways and sidewalks
Heron Cove homes have curved and

rounded concrete driveways and
sidewalks to create a flowing entrance.
Fir Strip
This is the strip of wood that the
drywall is attached to on all outside
walls. At Heron Cove they only use 1X4-
inch instead 1X2-inch, because it gives
a straighter, flatter wall, more visually
appealing.
Tile
Have you ever seen a cracked tile or
line of cracked tile in a house?
To avoid this, Heron Cove uses a
product called crack suppression that is
applied before the tile is installed.

Give blood, give chances


BYJULIE ANN PLATT
GUEST WRITER


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Why aren't Floridians
eating Florida food?

That's the question Fran
Newton wants answered.
French eat French food and
British eat British food.
Fran's recipes for raccoon
with red wine, roast possum,
cactus pad salad and spiced
yucca chips appear in a cook-
book, "Historic Spanish Point:
Then and Now."
Other recipes are for soup
in a pumpkin and chicken stir
fry with mangoes. Diane
Gootee was on hand with
Fran at Venice Public Library
to promote the second edi-
tion of the book.
When it comes to cooking,
Fran believes local food is
best. This fun-loving woman
offered interesting anecdotes
to her recipes. While traveling
in Tahiti, she learned a good
way to ripen papaya is to
score the outside skin and let
it sit. Beverly Hammert vouch-
ed for the recipes in the book,
which is on sale at local book
stores and Historic Spanish
Point.
Look for Fran at the next
Venice MainStreet Third
Thursday Stroll. She'll be sign-
ing at the Book Shop.
Heading to Marshville
When you get an offer you
just can't refuse, you can't
refuse. That is the case with
RJ. (Arge) from the Collector's
Gallery. The retro modern
pop style artist is' heading to
Marshville, N.C., as Mary
Erickson's personal assistant.
His work will involve help-
ing Mary market her paint-
ings and set up a gallery. Mary
is a former Venice resident
whose work appears in local
galleries. \
R.J. will be missed. He is
always kind and gracious in
serving wine and treats at the
gallery for the Thursday
strolls.
Recently, R.J's friend, Eric
Luling, was in town working
on a documentary about the
artist. It was fun talking with
Eric since he is a man who
decided when he saw the
movie "Star Wars" many years
ago he wanted to work in the
movies.
Since then he became a set
art director. He's worked with
Arnold Schwarzenager on
"The Terminator," Tom Hanks
on "The Terminal" and most
recently with Steven
Spielberg on "War of the
Worlds." Eric is on his way to
Fort Lauderdale for work on
"Miami Vice."
Pat on the back
Lisa Hough and Rebecca
Ross touched many hearts
when they presented their
speeches as class Valedictori-
an and Salutatorian at the
Venice High School gradua-
tion. Lisa talked about follow-
ing our passions, and Rebecca
reminded the crowd we are a
culmination of our choices.
As stand-out athletes and
academicians, these young
women set a high standard
for, all but especially females.
They show the world that
being a good student and a
good athlete is cool. They rep-
resent all that is good with our
young people.
Lisa is known in the com-
munity for her service work,
and Rebecca is active in her
church community. Both
were members of the out-
standing Venice High volley-
ball team.
In addition to celebrating
Lisa and Rebecca, three
cheers to their parents and
volleyball coach Brian
Wheatley for their leadership.


Blood is a substance that
we cannot live without and
yet, few people probably give
it a second thought unless
you desperately need it to
survive.
We go about our lives, run-
ning full-speed ahead, until
something happens to stum-
ble our progress. It could be a
cancer diagnosis, an open-
heart surgery, a traumatic
accident, or an unexpected
incident that happens in an
unpredictable world.
SIt's when our lives turn
upside down that we begin to
remember that our bodies are
'fragile.
There are many people in
the Sarasota County commu-
nity who know life is fragile.
That's because they're the
ones who are going through
chemotherapy, worried about
a surgery, having a premature
baby or desperately need
physical strength to make it
through another day.
These are the people that
Suncoast Communities
Blood Bank and its dedicated
volunteers strive to help on a
daily basis. Suncoast Com-
munities Blood Bank has
served the Sarasota, Charlotte
and DeSoto areas for more
than 50 years, providing reli-
able blood supply and blood
products to area hospitals.
Needed every day
In order to help those peo-
ple have quality of life or
indeed, life itself, blood dona-
tion efforts can never stop.
Blood donations are always
-important and always need
ed, not just when a hugp crisis
occurs. There are little crises
every day. People's lives
depend on blood.
"Despite great strides in
medicine and health care
technology, the need for
blood has not changed," said
Dr. Mark J. Magenheim, CEO
and medical director of SCBB.
"Although there are countless
new forms of. therapy and
advances in life-saving drugs
and procedures, nothing can
replace human blood. We all
must have it to stay alive and
we are the only source of this
lifesaving gift to each other."
Quite a few people cringe
at the thought of needles, but
did you know that just one
blood donation can help save
up to three lives? A blood
donation is processed into
components such as red
blood cells, plasma and
platelets. Red blood cells help
to transport oxygen through-
out the body, plasma trans-
ports coagulation proteins,
water and nutrients through-
out the body. Platelets are
important because they're
essential to clotting and are


used for the treatment of can-
cer.
There is no natural or arti-
ficial substitute for human
blood. The need for an ade-
quate and ongoing blood
supply is crucial because
blood has a short shelf life of
only 42 days. Platelets have a
shorter shelf life of only five
days. If a blood product is
readily available and in suffi-
cient quantity, there's a
chance that someone with a
medical issue will benefit
quicker.
None of us know when we
might need a blood transfu-
sion. In fact, there's an 85 per-
cent chance that you or
someone you know may
some day need a blood trans-
fusion. If hospitals have an
adequate blood supply on
hand then the patient can be
treated much more efficient-
ly.
Suncoast Communities
Blood Bank relies on volun-
teer donors to keep the com-
munity's blood supply at an
adequate level. People have
been saved by just one dona-
tion.
These blood donors give
something of themselves that
figuratively, comes from their
heart. The Blood Bank is
proud of its donors. Just as
new technology comes our
Iay, we need new volunteer
blod donors to keep up the
good work.
Teaching the next genera-
tion is important to the future
of this community's blood
supply. By starting early, we
can reach out to children and
teenagers about the impor-
tance of such a selfless act of
caring for others, hoping in
return, that when they reach
the appropriate age to
donate, they will. Giving in
this way does not cost money.
It's a charitable act that
takes a short time and is
rewarding. Donors can leave
the Blood Bank or bloodmo-
bile knowing that they gave
someone another chance.
'Commitment is minimal'
Terry Shinn has been a
blood donor since the late
1970s. He believes strongly in
donating blood.
"If something were to hap-
pen to me I'd like blood to be
available if I were in need," he
said.
He credits his mother's
example as a blood donor,
that jump started his interest
in donating. Shinn likes to
give his time if he's able to
help someone and he would
encourage others to donate.
He feels that "commitment
is minimal," and that it's an
"easy way to give something
back. It can help someone in
need."
Mother's appreciation
"My son would have died


Virginia Masters and her son, Chase, now 22 months old.
Chase was born a "micro-preemie" at 22 weeks, 6 days gesta-
tional, and required.blood transfusions because he was not
able to produce his own red blood cells.

without that blood."
Those are the words of
Virginia Masters; who-knows
firsthand the importance of a
blood donation. Her son,
Chase, now 22 months old,
was a "micro preemie" at 22
weeks, 6 days gestational.
The doctors gave Chase 72
hours to live. Chase was given
an 11 percent chance of sur-
viving within those 72 hours,
and if he did survive those 72
hours, he was given a 17 per-
cent chance of living a nor-
mal life. Chase stayed in a
neonatal unit for 137 days.
During the first seven days,
he needed a transfusion and
required even more during
the course of the next 137
days because of blood tests
that were run and the fact
that. Chase was not able to
produce his own red blood
cells.
However, Chase had to
have specially screened
blood. Virginia couldn't give
at the time and his father had
to be screened out due to a
virus that affects preemies, so
the recruitment for blood
donors to match this special
need for blood turned 'to
friends. Masters' friend Wade
was a personal match for


Chase.
She was ecstatic that the
blood donor was someone
she knew. Chase was able to
receive all blood compo-
nents. This personal experi-
ence gave her a quick lesson
about blood banking.
"I never thought how
important it was until I've
experiencedit and how vitally
important it is to have the
Blood Bank stocked at all
times and to have blood on
reserve," Masters said.
The passion for the impor-
tance of blood donations
shows in her eyes. In the past
she had only donated blood.
once at her older son's school
when a bloodmobile was
scheduled.
In April 2005, Masters was
able to donate blood for the
first'time since this experi-
ence. Today, Chase is a rela-
tively normal, healthy toddler
with only some basic devel-
opmental issues. Her mes-
sage is clear.
"You need to come give
your blood. You can be a life-
saver," Masters said.
Now is the time to think of
others,. not just around the
holidays. All of us have some
spare time to help. What are a


few minutes of your ti e that
could mean hours, days, or
even months to omeoiie
else?
The volunteer donation
process is easy. The donor
goes through a registration
process, a short medical his-
tory and mini-physical, do-
nates blood and is given a
time to rest and have some-
thing to eat or drink. Em-
ployees with the blood bank
welcome the opportunity to
share with you how you can
be a volunteer blood donor.
Call or visit the Suncoast
Communities Blood Bank in
Sarasota, Nokomis, or Ar-
cadia.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
once said, "To give without
any reward, or any notice, has
a special quality of its own."
Perhaps you will find that
special quality. in yourself to
give something meaningful to
others The Gift of Life.

At Sarasota Memorial, we're much more than a hospital. We're a community-owned hospital. So for
more than 75 years, we've been making decisions that put the community's needs first, not our own.
Unlike other area hospitals, we don't cut programs people need simply because they're unprofitable.
Instead, we bring superior, affordable health care to our neighbors and local businesses m meaningful
and innovative ways. And when we do turn a profit, we turn it back into the services you need.
Call 94I-917-7777 or visit smh.com and get to know the only area hospital that operates strictly for
the common good. Which makes us uncommonly proud.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


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


Q. My hearing aid had to,
go back to the
manufacturer for repair. Is
there anything I can do to
help prevent future
problems with my hearing
aid?
A. Reliability of hearing
instruments remains one of
the great challenges to the
industry. The manufacturers
primary goal is to find ways
to protect the instrument's
components from failure such
as receiver shock and wax
impaction. However, the
largest contributor to
instrument failure is
moisture. Electrical corrosion
is the leading cause of
microphone and switches
failure, and here in Florida,
the moisture problem is a
concern year round. Every
person who wears a hearing
aid should store their
instruments overnight in
something called a "dry aid
kit." The dry aid kit works to
remove moisture from the-
hearing aid components and
this can considerably, reduce
the amount of repairs the
instrument will need. It also
can add years to the overall
life of the hearing aid. If you
currently use a hearing aid
everyday, you should look
into the benefits a dry aid kit
can offer, Call the Audio-
logist at Woodmere Hearing
& Balance:Centers, Inc. at
492-4327 to find out how to
get yours.

PHO.-TOS COUPTEi'i OF JOHr ROCHE
Paul Biette, Keith Hodkinson and Richard Dickey replace old equipment in the Oscar Scherer campground. The new accessible ,
playground was made possible by The Friends of Oscar Scherer Park Inc., the park's citizens' support organization, and a grant
from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice.


BY JOHN ROCHE
GUESTWRITER


How many times have you
seen something like that in
this paper, on TV or at the
many festivals and events
held in the Venice area? In
this day and age, most non-
profit organizations are sup-
plementing their minimal
staffs with volunteers in
order to complete their mis-
sion and goals.
It can be frustrating, hav-
ing donations of materials or
cash, but not having dona-
tions, of time and energy, to
actually put those materials


and funds to use.
The Florida Park Service is
no different. There'is so much
to do to protect the natural
and cultural resources of this
state, provide healthy out-
door recreation, and main-
tain the facilities in your state
parks. Volunteers supplied
almost 42 percent of the labor
force in Florida's.158 parks
last year that's a significant
amount of dedicated citizens.
Where would our parks be
without them?
Many of the volunteers at
Oscar Scherer State Park are
local residents, but in season
we get many "snowbirds"


migrating here to be Camp-
ground Hosts. The Wednes-
day Morning Work Group is a
dedicated bunch that comes
out every week and provides
many services to the park.
They help maintain trails,
work on boardwalks and
benches, and provide pro-
gram assistance and other
duties as requested. The fire-
wood used by our campers is
because of resource manage-
ment practices in the park
and these volunteers split this
wood and make it available
for a donation.
Many of the volunteers are
.also members of"The Friends

many projects that may not get done by staff due to other priorities.


of Oscar Scherer Park, Inc."
This is a nonprofit (501)(c)
organization that formed in
the early '90s to assist the
park and support its manage-
ment. They have built the
great Nature Center at Lake
Osprey Picnic Area. They also
contributed more than $8,000
last year to equip our fire
trucks with new pumps,
tanks, and other needed
improvements.
There are many projects
the "Friends" are working on,
as well as looking out for the
welfare of the inhabitants of
the park.
What can volunteers do?
Many people have dreamed
of leaving the industrial world
and being a "Park Ranger." As
a volunteer, "you can be a
ranger" and work in the out of
doors, if only for afew hours a
week.
Breath the clean air, soak
up some sun, and help make
a difference for the future.
What would you like to do,
what is your talent, what is
your passion? There are so
many questions; with so
many answers. Volunteers
can utilize their skills or learn
new ones such as prescribed
burning, exotic plant
removal, or interpretation. It
is a give and take, a win-win
situation where both sides get
something and more impor-
tant, they each give some-
thing.
What would you like to
give? Wouldn't you like to give
your grandchildren a safe,
healthy, place to enjoy and
yourself the satisfaction of
knowing you have done this

free of any financial burden or
reward? You can give yourself
a chance to exercise your
body, mind, and spirit; so you
can be there with your grand-
children as they see what you
have contributed, for them.
Volunteering in the
"wilderness," which is fast
disappearing, is what this is
all about; helping to keep
"The Real Florida" alive, vib-
rant, and accessible, through


your efforts, commitment,
and dedication.

meeting sight.' They loaded
the balloon at Old Town in
Kissimmee. There were 16
multi-colored balloons in the
air. It is easy to imagine the
breathtaking view they made
as they drifted like birds in the
sky. Joan tells me her daugh-
ter took gobs of pictures of
every scene imaginable.
Mark, the pilot, kept them
entertained on the one-hour
flight with jokes, and pointed
out wildlife and the scenery
below. Joan was plainly in
awe of the whole experience,
and at no time did she feel
afraid.
"Everyone should enjoy
the thrill of this at least one
time in her lifetime!" she said.
When all the balloons were
back on the Earth, the com-


panies that owned the bal-
loons gathered their guests at
one site for a delightful cham-
pagne brunch! Adding to the
romanticism of the day was a
couple who excitedly an-
nounced at brunch that the
gentleman had given his swe-
etheart an engagement ring
while up in the sky .
Although afraid of heights,
this is something I have
always dreamt of doing, but
never had the opportunity. I
always remember a story
about Chuck and Ellen Os-
burn, a well-known couple of
Big Rapids, Mich. On their last
anniversary they had a bal-
loon ride over their alma
mater, as a tribute from their
children.
Similarly, I heard on TV
recently that a couple ex-
changed their wedding vows
in a hot air balloon. I wonder
if I'm too old? I donno!
A while back I wrote a col-
umn about "Why do we take
so many pictures and.what do
we do with all of them?" A
friend had given me her view-
point of the advantages of a
digital camera. My grandson,
Patrick, sent his observation
about capturing life with pic-
tures, and I quote him:
"Recorded history started
with people painting pictures
on walls. These were simple
images that allowed anyone
to understand the events that
the painter was trying to
record. The quality of materi-
als improved, and immovable
cave walls were replaced with
canvas, but until the camera
was invented in 1888, record-
ed history was an interpreta-


keepsakes

tion."
Due to this invention, my
children have inherited boxes
of images through which they
and their children were able
to meet some family mem-
bers that they had never seen
in person. They were able to
see their mother and father,
grandmother and grandfa-
ther when they were young.
After I have passed on, it's a
comfort to know that I will
live on in these pictures.
In my life, pictures were
special. You had'a roll of film.
You had 24 or 36 pictures. No
do-overs! Once you took a
picture, it was history forever.
Even the terrible pictures I've
taken with my fingers in front
of the lens tell a story about
me that will exist forever in
the negatives stored in those
boxes full of family history.
That roll of film I usedto load
my camera with is now all but
gone. It has been replaced by
electronics. The photo develop-
er has been replaced by photo
printers in the home.The photo
album has been replaced by a
plastic disk. If someone takes a
picture of their finger, they just
delete the picture and move on
to the next photo. That little
piece of history is gone forever.
It leads me to ask the ques-
tion, "What will be available
when my children's,' children's
children have passed on?" Will
people see only their best, or
their worst? Will people see
them at all? Our recorded histo-
ry has moved from immovable
rock walls that have not
changed for thousands of years,
to data that can be erased at the
touch of a button.

who visit our downtown and
experience what we call qual-

I hear folks say Venice is a

from a town of 450 people on
a Saturday night, I do not call
Venice small. Quaint as com-

Our city leaders and com-

lot of time talking about pro-
tecting the character of the
town. But I wonder if they
really know what makes
everyone want to live in or
near Venice? If so, why are the
new developments not

I am surprised that the
many new developments


have not emulated our down-

and look around. What do
you see? What is different
from where you live? What do
you see that attracted you to
Venice the first time you came
to visit?
The first thing that strikes
me is that Venice is designed
for people. Not cars! There are
sidewalks, plants, trees, flow-
ers and places to sit. The traf-
fic moves slower and is set up
to allow the people to cross
the street in safety and with-
out fear. Most buildings are

interesting features with peo-

have rights to unclaimed property


Dear Savvy Senior,
I recently read an article
about unclaimed benefits, and
that thousands of Americans
may have money that belongs
to them but don't know about


it. Can you give me some infor-
mation about this? Both of my
parents passed away a few
years ago and their personal
and financial affairs were in
such a mess, I'm wondering if
there's anything I overlooked.
Also, I think my father had some
type of life insurance policy but I
never could find it. Any tips you
could give me would be appre-
ciated..- Looking for Loot
Dear Looking,
What you're asking about
is called "unclaimed proper-
ty" which is money and even
valuables that families have
misplaced or forgotten about
over the years. Here's what
you should know.


Unclaimed property
Each year billions of dol-
lars belonging to millions of
Americans goes unclaimed
when banks, companies and
government agencies lose
track of the rightful owner.
This typically happens
because of a change of
address (the owner moved), a
name change (the owner got
married or divorced), or
death of the owner (the
estate was unaware of the
money or the heirs could not
be located). By law, compa-
nies that can't find the owner
or their next of kin within
two to five years must turn

BACKHAUS from page6B


lithic building on an ocean of
hot asphalt and monotonous
yellow lines overwhelms one's
spirit. There are places to stop
and eat, shady places to read
or just sit and people watch.
You see people sitting on
benches having comfortable
conversations.
I guess you could call it a
linear park, which stretches
from 41 to the gulf, again with
wonderful palms, stately live
oaks, places to sit, and a wan-
dering path to stroll or walk
the dog, public art and com-


munity monuments to our
history.
I find it great to watch the
young people skateboard and
ruminate on my potential
athletic prowess. Either way, I
always get a laugh at their
leaps and recovery from self-
made obstacles as they strug-
gle to keep those low riding
trousers from heading south.
Walking along the avenue
one hears the sound of birds
and the breeze in the palms
and not the constant roar of
traffic. As one moves in and


out of the shade the tempera-
ture changes but is always
cooler.
There is a restroom and
soon a fountain. Music and
other public events are held
around the Gazebo. Even the
car parking is surrounded by
green space and promotes
safe walking and its size is
appropriate.
Here and there one finds a
picnic table. A few more
down toward the Gulf would
be nice. Close at.hand are the
post office, city hall, and pub-


lic tennis and basketball
courts. It is a place where
people live, work, and play. It
is not too far to church, the
grocery store or library.
So what is the secret?
Downtown Venice is human
in scale, walkable, safe and
filled with plant life, people
feel at home. They sense this
is a place where people care
for each other and for their
community. People take own-
ership almost immediately.
They say, "I can buy an ice
cream or glass of wine read

the property over to the state
where it's held indefinitely.
Treasure hunt
It's entirely possible that
you or a deceased relative
has some unclaimed proper-
ty out there and you don't
even know.it. Unclaimed
property can include things
like lost investments or bank
accounts, Social Security
payments, utility deposits,
tax refunds, insurance pro-
ceeds and more. Here are
some free resources to help
you look:
National Association of
Unclaimed Property
Administrators (NAUPA):
Each state has a database of
unclaimed property that you
can search. The NAUPAWeb
site (unclaimed.org) will con-
nect you to every state in the
union. Check every state in
which you or your relative
have lived, worked or con-
ducted business. Also search
using maiden names and
any previous names, as well
as middle names and middle
initials. Every state can tell
you immediately if you have
some unclaimed property.
For more unclaimed proper-
ty searching resources, see
the NAUPAlinks page.
MissingMoney.com: A
national database operated
byACS Unclaimed Property
Clearinghouse that enables
owners'to perform compre-
hensive searches for lost
assets. Visit
MissingMoney.com.
HUD: If you had a
HUD/FHA insured mort-
gage, you may be eligible for
a refund. Visit
hud.gov/offices/hsg/comp/r
efunds/index.cfm or call
(800) 697-6967.
Internal Revenue Service:
Last year, more than 87,000
refund checks worth $73 mil-
lion were returned to the IRS
by the post office. If you
think the IRS owes you
money call (800) 829-1040.
U.S. Department of
Treasury: To search for lost
savings bonds call 800-722-
2678 or visit
publicdebt.treas.gov/sav/sbt-
dhunt.htm.
Pension Benefit
Guaranty Corporation: If you
worked'for a company in the
past that went out of busi-
ness or ended its defined
benefit pension plan, you
may be entitled to pension
money. Visit
pbgc.gov/search/default.htm
or call (800) 400-7242.
Social Security
Administration: To search for
unclaimed benefits call (800)
772-1213.
Life insurance
Life insurers are among
the largest holders of
unclaimed money. More
than $1 billion in life insur-
ance benefits are unclaimed
and unpaid because the ben-
eficiaries aren't aware that
the policies exist, or can't find
it because they don't know
which insurance company
wrote it. If you're having a
hard time finding your rela-
tive's life insurance policy
from the resources previous-
ly listed, here are some other
tips to consider:
Go through canceled
checks (made out to insur-
ance companies) or contact
your relative's bank for copies
of old checks.
Contact your'relative's
insurance agent or ask those
who may have known about
your relative's finances like
their accountant, banker or
lawyer.
Contact your relative's
past employers to see if they
purchased a policy through


work.
Contact the Medical
Information Bureau. They
offer a life insurance policy
locator service (for $75) that
finds policies purchased
within the last 10 years. Call
(866) 692-6901 or visit policy-
locator.com.
Medicare preventive
services
Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you tell me about
Medicare's preventive health
care services? My husband and I
will both turn 65 next year and a
friend of mine was telling me
about some new health screen-
ings Medicare is now offering.
What all does this include? -
Health Conscious Helen

Dear Helen,
Medicare knows that pre-
venting disease and illness is
a lot cheaper than treating it.
That's why Medicare con-
tinues to expand the preven-
tive service they cover that
can also help you stay


healthy and living longer.
Here's what you should
know.
New services
Heart disease, cancer,
stroke and diabetes are the
leading causes of death in
Americans age 65 and older.
So, Medicare now covers
three new preventive services
(started Jan. 1, 2005) that can
help you delay or avoid these
diseases. The new services
include:
One-time "Welcome to
Medicare" physical: All new
Medicare enrollees can now
get a one-time physical exam
within the first six months
that you have Part B cover-
age. The exam will include a
review of your health, as well
as education and counseling
about preventive services
you need.
Cardiovascular screenings:
This service checks your cho-
lesterol, lipid and triglyceride
levels that can help you pre-
vent a heart attack or stroke.


Medicare will cover this
screening once every five
years.
Diabetes screening:
Millions of people have dia-
betes and don't even know it.
Medicare now covers tests to
check for diabetes for those
at risk for the disease.
Savvy note
Medicare recently
announced that they will
start paying for counseling to
help eligible seniors stop
smoking and using other
tobacco products. It's esti-
mated that nearly 10 percent
of Americans age 65 and
older smoke cigarettes and
around 300,000 die each year,
from smoking-related dis-
eases.
Other services
Medicare pays for many
other preventive services
including:
Colorectal cancer screen-

Is this too much to ask for
in the rest of our county? Is
this too much to ask our city
leaders to not just protect but
to foster throughout the
entire community? I think


not.
This is a community where
people of all ages can live for a
lifetime.

Savonlinna Opera Festival opens July 8 in lake
district


STAFF REPORT


In a world ever lacking in
feeling and compassion, "it is
up to art to arouse emotions
and revive our ability to
empathize," according to Jan
Hultin, general director of the
Savonlinna Opera Festival to
take place in Olavinlinna
Castle nestled in Finland's
idyllic eastern lake district
July 8-Aug. 6.
That may be a tall order,


but the world-renowned
Festival will step up to the
plate by igniting human pas-
sion with dramatically sung
stories in a magical setting.
From Olavinlinna Castle, a
fairy tale fortress set amidst a
shimmering archipelago, to
its magnificent perfor-
mances, the Savonlinna,
Opera Festival brings a new
sense of vibrancy to -the
human spirit, bringing with it
renewal, excitement and


good will.
The Festival's new produc-
tion will be The Horseman
featuring up-and-coming
Finnish artists. And the visit-
ing opera from the Gran
Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona
will perform a Spanish Night
devoted to a concert version
of Granados' Goyescas, some
arias' and the best of zarzuela.
A series of enchanting chil-
dren's operas, Canine
Kalevala, popularly referred
to as "the canine national
epic," will have two extra per-
formances in 2005. "Aida,"
"Turandot" and "Tales of


Hoffmann" are among the
many operas that shall
delight audiences at
Savonlinna this summer.
Caves and elves
Operagoers visiting
Savonlinna will find the cas-
tle's magic echoed in all cor-
ners of this Lakeland region.

largest art center in the North,
Retretti has art galleries above
ground and below in subter-
raneaj caverns blasted out of
solid ground..

splendid moraine ridge at
Punkaharju formed during
the Ice Age. Educational visits

farm, a zoo, an arboretum, a
bird sanctuary, a sheep farm,

Museum, a national museum
offorest culture, colorful mar-
kets, quaint churches, a

the compelling history of sail-
ing in the Lake Saimaa area.
Raikku Canal and other
war exhibitions commemo-
rate Finnish bravery and sac-
rifice during World War II.
There are even has pockets of
"Elvin" magic.
Juhanantupa captures
Finland's Karelian roots as
well as ties to Finland's
national epic Kalevala, which
provided layers of inspiration
for J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the
Rings." To learn more, visit
savonlinna.fi.

Walking
Dear Savvy Senior,
I am 59 years old and I had a
heart attack last year. My wife-
keeps nagging me to start walk-
ing with her so I don't have
another one. The problem is I'm
an old athlete, who thinks this
walking stuff is more for women
and is a waste of my time. What
do you think? Heart Attack
Harry
Dear Harry,
It's not a waste of time, but
it sure might buy you some
time. Walking is actually the
perfect gentle exercise when
you're recovering from heart
trouble, a stroke or other ill-
ness. In fact, the Journal of
the American Medical
Association (JAMA) recently
published that a vigorous
half-hour walk, just six times
a month, can dramatically
reduce the risk of premature
death. Here's what else you
should know.
Health benefits
.Walking is good for a lot of
what ails you. It builds
endurance, enhances muscle


tone and flexibility, strength-
ens bones and doesn't pound
your joints. It also helps pre-
vent heart disease, stroke,
high blood pressure, dia-
betes, arthritis and cancer.
Here are a few recent studies
on the health benefits of
walking:
In a study of Harvard
graduates, the Mayo Clinic
discovered that men who
burned 2,000 or more calo-
ries a week by walking lived
an average of one to two
years longer than those who
burned fewer than 500 calo-
ries a week walking.
In 2003, JAMA published a
study that found that women
who walked briskly 1.25 to
2.5 hours per week had an 18
percent reduction in breast
cancer risk.
SJAMA also found that
seniors between the ages of
71 and 93 who walked less
than a quarter mile per day
were twice as likely to devel-
op Alzheimer's and other
forms of dementia as those
who walked more than 2
miles per day.
Getting started
Walking is one of the easi-
est and most beneficial
forms of exercise. All you
need is a good pair of shoes,
comfortable clothing, and
desire. Here are some walk-
ing tips to consider:
Starting: Start out slow
and easy. For most people
this means head out the
door, walk for 10 minutes,
and walk back. That's it! Do
this every day for a week. If
this was easy foryou, add
five minutes to your walks
next week and keep adding
five minutes until you are
walking as long as you desire.
Stretching: Start and fin-
ish your walk with a few sim-
ple warm up and cool down
stretches. Stretching will


make you feel great and
assist in injury prevention.
Distance: Any walking is
better than none. But studies
show that the average person
needs to take around 10,000
steps per day (the equivalent
of four to five miles) to get
maximum health benefits.
Speed: The right walking
speed depends on your age
and fitness level. Brisk walk-
ing is the goal because the
heart reaches its natural .
"training zone" when it has
to work a little harder than
normal.
Extra steps: If you have a
hard time squeezing that
daily walk in, there are other
opportunities that can help
you keep moving. For exam-
ple, taking the stairs instead
of riding the elevator, or
parking far away from the
store entrance or even walk-
ing to the store.
Be smart: If you have
health concerns or a medical
condition, be sure to talk
with your doctor before you
begin walking.

nization that has 350 walking

Dental health
Dear Savvy Senior,
My doctor is now acting like
my dentist. The last time I went
in for a visit he was telling me
about gum disease and decay
and how it can cause other
kinds of serious health prob-


lems. I'm 56 years old and I've
never been that loyal to floss-
ing, but now I'm starting to
worry. What is this about, and
what does my mouth have to do
with my heart? Down in the
Mouth.
Dear Down,
Your doctor's right! In fact,
many doctors believe that
the best way to evaluate a
persons' general health is to
look in their mouth. Studies
show a link benteen gum
disease, otherwise known as
periodontal disease, to a vari-
ety of health problems
including heart disease and
stroke. Here's what you
should know.
Gum disease
Early gum disease starts
with plaque, the invisible, sticky
film of bacteria that sets up -
house on your tooth enamel.
As plaque hardens into tartar, it
attracts more than 350 possible
varieties of bacteria. As bacte-
ria-rich tartar travels below the
gumline, a more advanced
gum disease called periodonti-
tis begins (infection of the gum,
bone and other tissue sur-
rounding the tooth).
Some researchers believe
that periodontal disease is hard
on the heart because the bacte-
ria from chronic oral infection
can spread through the blood
stream and contribute to dis-
ease in the heart and other
parts of the body. Other
researchers believe that chronic
gum infections may trigger a
chain of chemical events that
causes inflammation and
swelling throughout the body,
which can cause blood clots,
leading to a heart attack or
stroke.
Health.connections
Studies have found that
people who have periodontal
disease are nearly twice as like-
ly to suffer from heart disease


as those who don't Other ail-
ments linked to gum disease
include:
Stroke: University of
Buffalo researchers studied
the health histories of nearly
10,000 people between the
ages of 25 and 75, and found
that the 35 percent who had
severe gum disease were
twice as likely to have suf-
fered a severe stroke.

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

The Great Egret


The Venice Area Audubon
Rookery is located on a small
island on Annex Road in:

ven for birds for more than
25 years.

the Rookery are the Great
Blue Heron, Great Egret,
Anhinga, Black-crowned


Night Heron, Snowy and
Cattle Egrets and White and
glossy Ibis.
During nesting season,

species can be seen at the
Rookery.
The Venice Audubon
Center, which is located next
io the Rookery, serves as an
educational and conserva-


tion facility for the Venice
area.
Binoculars are available at
the center to aid in the view-
ing of the birds and photo-
graphs of the birds are on
display.
