Paramedics rush Venice resident James Stanley, 40, who later died following a traffic crash
on U.S. 41 Bypass near Warfield Avenue on Friday, according to a Venice Police Department
press release. Stanley was driving a Kia Sorrento northbound on U.S. 41 B ypass when a
2001 Daewoo, driven by Maurice Richard, 74, of Venice, pulled out of Warfield Avenue, into
the median and turned onto the Bypass heading north. The press release states that
Richard's car struck the SUV driven by Stanley, causing it to spin, strike the curb and roll
over, ejecting Stanley from the vehicle. Richard was.wearing his seat belt and was unin-
jured, according to police. Charges are pending.

2A NICE GONDOLIER N


WATERFRONT from page lA


Waterford would like to turn
the vacant area under Venice
Avenue Bridge into public
parking for the Venetian
Waterway Trail.
his concept plan for
Waterfront Business District.
The goal is to redevelop
almost the entire area sur-
rounded by U.S. 41 Business,
the Intracoastal Waterway
and Venice Avenue Bridge.
In place of asphalt and
aging one-story buildings,
Miller wants to build a two-
story parking garage that has
190 public parking spaces all
hidden behind lines of build-
ings stepping up from four to
seven stories along Tampa
and Venice avenues.
Inside those buildings
would be residential housing,
art galleries, small stores,
restaurants and a hotel with
public docks and meandering
sidewalks lined with trees
weaving through the devel-
opment.
This is easily Miller's most
ambitious project yet in
South County.
"It's exciting," Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce
President. John Ryan said.
"People really need to take a
look at what's there now and
what could be. ... From a
business perspective, all of
the (downtown) businesses
could benefit from this."
To the streets
Miller is-still months away
from applying for approval
from Venice City Council and
the planning commission.
In order to do what he
wants mix commercial,
retail, hotel and residential
within the same building -
Waterford is going to draft a
new zoning district ordinance
and submit it to the city for
approval. Waterford attorney
Jeff Boone hopes to have this
proposed ordinance in front
of the planning commission
by August.
While Miller waits, he's vis-
iting groups, showing his
draft concept plan and asking
for public input. Friday's lun-
cheon was for a collection of
business and community
leaders, Venice MainStreet
Inc. was shown the presenta-
tion Wednesday and the
Venice Taxpayers League and
Venice Merchants Associa-
tion groups are planned in
the upcoming week.
Yes, one of the most vocal
anti-growth groups in Venice
will get an advance look at
this proposal at 1:30 p.m.
Monday during the regularly
scheduled Venice Taxpayers
League meeting.


AT A GLANCE
Here are the highlights of what Warerford President Mike Miller
hopes to do with the land he owns bordered by Venice Avenue
Bridge to the south, U.S. 41 Business to the west and the
Intracoastal Waterway to the north and east. Miller already has
approval for construction of three, 10-story condominium towers
(two are built) along the waterway.
* BUILDINGS Buildings would step up from four stories to
seven, with the shortest buildings near U.S. 41 Business and the
tallest buildings near the Intracoasral Waterway. Inside these
buildings would be restaurants, residential housing, offices, retail
shops and a 140-room hotel. Each building would vary in design
and color schemes.
* PARKING A two-story parking garage would be hidden
behind the buildings along Tampa and Venice avenues with 190
public parking spots on the ground floor and hotel parking on the
second floor. Venetian Waterway Trail public parking would be
created under Venice Avenue Bridge.
* ROADS Miami, Tampa and Venice avenues in this district
would be redone with widened sidewalks at 10 or more feet. Will
work with FDOT and the city to improve pedestrian crosswalk at
U.S. 41 Business and Tampa Avenue leading to existing
Downtown Venice.
* DOCKS An estimated 10 public docks for transient boaters.
* PUBLIC INPUT Mike Miller and Waterford are showing their
concept plans to various community groups and asking them to
fill out surveys. It asks'people to rank which amenities they would
like to see in the Waterfront Business District. The list includes
resort/hotel/banquet facilities; water taxi and downtown trolley;
public boat docks; sidewalk links to parks and bike path; water-
front restaurants and art galleries; and public parking areas. Miller
plans to post this survey online at the Waterford Companies site,
waterfordcompanies.com, so the general public can be heard and
make suggestions.
* APPLICATION Applications for city approval should be sub-
mitted within the next five months. Miller and attorney Jeff Boone
hope first to get a new zoning district, Waterfront Business District,
approved by city council. Boone explained this zoning would
combine elements of Commercial Business and Planned
Commercial districts and require a developer to submit concept
plans before city approval of any rezoning. Current city zoning
laws do not address the combination of residential, commercial,
retail and hotel uses all within the same structure.


VTL President Herb Levine
only had a quick review of the
plan when he and Miller met
to talk about attending the
group's regular meeting.
Levine's initial reaction is
that areawould be better suit-
ed for office and retail on the
first floor with high-priced
condominiums on the. sec-
ond and third floors. Keep the
height below 35 feet and do
not create something thatwill
increase traffic, he said.
These opinions, Levine
clarified, are without seeing
Miller's entire presentation.

ing about putting in some
massive areas, and I wonder
about concurrency (traffic

den, people will wonder,
'Why can't I get offthe island?'"
Levine said.
Community desires

margin would be higher if he
circled the Tampa and Venice
avenue area with townhouses'
arid condominiums that
include exclusive dock rights
along the Intracoastal
Waterway.

Outlook Tavern, 165 E. Venice Ave., with a multi-story waterfront restaurant that includes a cov-

screen South Venice theater
by Christmas and a 20-screen

Government approval is still

There's been much debate
about a lack of affordable

affordable when compared to

Planning department releases report on Venice's critical issues


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

; More than six years ago,
Venice crafted a blueprint for
the city's future that focused
gn land annexation issues.
" The latest revision no
longer looks outside of city
limits for improvements.
Venice's new comprehensive
plan will turn the spotlight
Mvithin its existing boundaries
to focus on what future rede-
velopment will occur there.
, A 53-page document was
released last week by the
Venice Planning Department
outlining the "critical issues"
of the state-mandated
Evaluation Appraisal Report,
which takes a look at the
existingg comprehensive plan
the framework for deciding
-Venice's future look, commu-
nidty services and identity. The
Ilanfiing commission will
ijeview staff's finding Tuesday
And make a recommendation
on whether city: council
should accept it.
: Though he didn't work for
Venice when the last plan was
written, Planning and Zoning
Director Tom Slaughter said
the 1999 comprehensive plan
evolved around land annex-
ation issues.
Much of Venice is nearly
built-out and most of the land
targeted for annexation is
already within city limits, so
the state-required update to
the plan due next year will
focus more on redevelop-
ment and land-use issues.
Because of this, Venice has
used the very public Envision
Venice program to gather and
assemble what community
members want for the city's


HIGHLIGHTS
The entire 53-page critical issues report is available for
review at city hall, and staff plans to post it on the Internet at'
venicegov.com under the Envision Venice link. As of Friday,
only the four-page summary had been posted as part of the
planning commission agenda. Here are the eight "critical
issues" for Venice:
Regional partnerships City must work more closely
with neighboring communities in order to better deal with
natural disasters, education, transportation and public utili-
ties issues.
Public facility standards Goes beyond government
buildings and reviews community needs for churches, civic
centers, housing and other completely or semi-public build-
ings.
Community character Appearance and how it affects
the quality of life in Venice.
Natural resources preservation Create a balance
between natural enxironments, wildlife habitats and active
recreation areas.
Community design Architectural design standards.
Community linkages Beyond transportation, move
away from image of gated communities and exclusivity that
residents oppose.
Master planning An example of this is when the city
has to tear up a street to replace utility lines, should the street
go back in the way it was or be redesigned?
Community activity centers Examine major develop-
ment and conunmmercial centers and determine if they're
meeting the commtnlit 's economic, housing, commercial
and public service needs.


future and are presenting that
to the state agencies that
must approve Venice's new
comprehensive plan.
"That's allowed us to put
the state and other agencies
on the spot, on the defen-
sive," Slaughter said. "We
were able to tell them what
our public wants."

Pieces of eight
Venice identified eight crit-
ical issues through the five
months of public input and
meetings with other state and
local regulating agencies.


Once the planning com-
mission and city council
accept these eight points,
staff will have a pair of work-
shops aiming to create con-
cept plans to address these
goals.
These workshops 10
. a.m.- 2 p.m. June 20 and 21 at
Village On The Isle, 930 South
Tamiami Trail will attempt
to mold public opinions and
agency requests into a frame-
work that will eventually
become the new comprehen-
sive plan.,
An example of what will be


discussed is the topic of open
space. Most residents are ask-
ing for more parks and open
space, but it's unclear if peo-
ple mean undisturbed wild-
life habitat, well-maintained
park lawns, nature trails, rec-
reation areas or some combi-
nation of all four.
The June 20 workshop will
deal with community charac-
ter issues. Most people favor
architectural design themes.
The debate is where those
themes belong and the inten-
sity of design restrictions.
Other issues will attempt
to educate the public on how
lower density demands at
the top of resident requests -
is in conflict with their over-
whelming support of public
transportation. Slaughter said
it typically takes around 10 or
more living units per acre to
support bus services.
Also, people need to actu-
ally use public transportation
instead of their cars,
Slaughter said.
The goal is to marry com-
munity goals with outcomes.
Sometimes, resident desires
have unintended conse-
quences.
Low-density develop-
ments with little wiggle room
for variances actually lead to
urban sprawl that eats up
green space and creates mo-
notony.- two challenges the
public wants addressed.
"The failure of most com-
prehensive plans is when the
pieces don't fit together,"
Slaughter said. "Old plans
broke (land-use require--
ments) apart. We want to look
at how they all fit together, a
plan that looks at it as a
whole."


Villa Lago returns for approval


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Rejected by Venice
Planning Commission as
being out of character for the
neighborhood, and kicked
back to staff by council for
having too many unanswered
questions, developers for the
proposed Villa Lago commu-
nity return for city approval
Tuesday.
This time around, the 151
living units divided into 50,
single-story triplex buildings
has been changed to 37, two-
story, four-unit buildings with
a total of 148 dwelling units.
Attorney Jeff Boone, who
represents developer Sam
Rodgers, believes the revised
plan addresses questions
dealing with negative impacts
on the environment and
neighboring Sorrento Ranch.
What is actually up for
approval is a rezoning request
to make the 46 acres of land
on the west side of Pionebrook
Road, north of Edmondson
Road, a Planned Unit
Development. This zoning
requires a concept plan be
submitted, approved and
adhered to before a PUD is
granted.

recommends the cap for

The amount has not been
increased since themed dis-

YOUTH from page 1A

Community Youth Develop-
ment Project coordinators
who recently published
"Voices 2," documenting their
research on middle schoolers.
The project involved sur-
veying young teens in Venice,
North Port and other Sarasota
County communities on their
views toward work, commu-
nity service and fun.
"It is a well-worn saying
that youth should be seen
and not heard. Too often, this
is how youth are made to feel
in their community," states
the report.
"Society's general opinion
about middle school aged
youth is that they are lazy,
troublemakers, and disre-
spectful. The outside appear-
ance of youth sends a nega-
tive and incorrect message to
the general public. The public
view, in turn, makes it hard
for teens to participate in the
community.
"After completing the pro-
ject, we came to realize that
some of our original general-
izations were. incorrect. The
results showed us youth are
actually hard working, active
in the community, and want
to be involved. We learned
that once youth are involved,
they stay involved."
Researchers found the
"Millennia .Generation" is
more positive, hopeful for
their future and dedicated to
helping others than any gen-
eration preceding them.
"But they are at the same
time less civic ininded. They
spend less time with their
parents due to the demands
of work," states the report.
"These busy adults find
less and less time to volunteer
or participate in community
meetings or civic activities,
removing an important role
model in the development of
a young citizen."

Work
Ninety percent of middle-
schoolers believe they should
be able to earn money.
Not only should they be
able to earn money, they are
ready, willing and eager for


MAKING MONEY
The biggest barrier to middle-
schoolers earning money: 57
percent indicated it's school,
52 percent specified home-
work as a major obstacle.
Another 37 percent said par-
ents objected, while 35 per-
cent indicated lack of trans-
portation. Most surprising,
said researchers, is 86 percent
of youth surveyed already
earn money.
"It's more then we assumed,"
said researchers. 'This is a
substantial percentage
because the U.S. Department
of Labor shows that only 57
percent of 14-year-olds held a
job in 1994-97."


the opportunity, say re-
searchers.
"When we began this pro-
ject, we felt youth were
unwilling and unmotivated to
work. As we moved further
(along) we came to realize
youth feel they are responsi-
ble and actually want to
work."
Selling things, doing odd
jobs and working in a grocery
store were listed most fre-
quently as the type of job a
middle-schooler said they
could do. Thirty-two percent
already earn money through
odd jobs.
The biggest barrier to earn-
ing money- 57 percent indi-
cated it's school, 52 percent
specified, homework as a
major obstacle. Another 37
percent said parents object-
ed, while 35 percent indicated
lack of transportation.

researchers, is 86 percent of
youth surveyed already earn

"It's more then we
assumed," said researchers.
"This is a substantial percent-
age because the U.S.

that only 57 percent of 14-

Service
Fifty-seven percent of mid--
dle school youth want to vol-
unteer in the community,
said researchers. Fifty-two
percent have already partici-
pated in raising money
through activities like walk-a-
thons or candy sales. Thirty-
five, percent said they volun-
teer because it's fun.
Twenty-one percent don't,
volunteer because they don't
know how to get involved.
Twenty-nine percent said

To help youth get involved
in the community,
researchers suggest service

safe and offers the benefits of
excitement, good music,
good food and a "free night of
fun."
To better help parents help
their kids find entertainment,
youth suggest schoolwide stu-
dent directories containing
the contact information of
students and their parents to
allow for ease of communica-
tion among parents. They also
encourage a "Safe Homes"
organization to create a parent
directory with contact infor-
mation, in the event a child
would like to visit a person's
house on the list.
Middle-schoolers also
support more after-school
programs such as the Police
Athletic League that help
youth do their homework
while providing fun activities.
They encourage teachers
to provide students with syl-
labi for homework assign-
ments for the entire week to
allow youth to plan their time
and allow them to par dicipate


in more fun, work or service
activities.
The Voices team of
researchers included Gina
Chirillo and Liz Liberman of
Pine View High, Eric Brennan
and Jennifer Wronski at
Riverview High, and Chip
Kenniff at Sarasota High. The
youths were trained in com-
munity research skills by
University of South Florida's
Prevention Research Center.
Students conducted ethno-
graphic research, developed
the survey instrument and
tabulated results from more
than 400 surveys from teens in
grades six through eight.
Part of their task was to
instruct middle school stu-
dents in. research methods
and leadership skills.
The project was a follow-
up on youth research from
the 2003-04 "Voices 1" pro-
ject, which focused on trans-
portation, family relation-
ships and the use of leisure
time.

Sarasota school board to tackle lengthy agenda


Among the 73 agenda items is the annual


superintendent's evaluate

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County School
Board will reveal this Tuesday
whether the Superintendent
Gary Norris either "exceeded
expectations," "met expecta-
tions," or "was below expecta-
tions."
The annual superinten-
dent evaluation is just one of
13 new agenda items and 60
items on the consent agenda
at the school board's June 7
meeting at The Landings.
Following the meeting the
board will take an extended
summer break, not meeting
again until July 19.
Seven joint-agreement
approvals, 26 grant applica-
tions seeking roughly $22 mil-
lion (mostly in guaranteed
federal pass-through grants),
and approval of 12 construc-
tion/facilities contracts, are
just some of the items on the
agenda.


on.

The board will also consid-
er approval of 10 new admin-
istrative positions (three are
reclassifications), including a
District Recruiter to help lure
quality educators to Sarasota
County schools, a Media and
Technology Supervisor, and
Supervisor of Charter
Schools, a position currently
shared among departments.
The superintendent evalu-
ation is, by all accounts, the
most important duty the
board will take up this year,
setting the tone and expecta-
tions for the district for the
upcoming year.
Norris was hired in April
2004.
A poor evaluation could
send the superintendent
packing. But that's not likely
to happen. Giving the super-
intendent its highest rating
could send a strong message
of approval for the direction
the superintendent intends
to take the district. Last


month Superintendent Gary
Norris unveiled his five-year
vision for the district, called
NeXt Generation Learning,
emphasizing advanced tech-
nology throughout the dis-
trict.
The board will meet indi-
vidually with Superintendent
Norris prior to the June 7
meeting, when they will dis-
cuss the evaluation as a board
for the first time.
VHS Musical Suite
Venice High School will get
a new music practice room
under a contract up for
approval by the board.
Reportedly, an accredita-
tion board reviewing the
school's music program had
concerns with "inadequate
facilities."
"The board wanted to
address that as quickly as
possible," said Bob Early,
associate superintendent.
Goodwill deferred
The Goodwill Academy, a
charter school sponsored by
Goodwill Industries-Mana-


BILKED from pagelA


Fraud Act (principal three
counts); conspiracy to
defraud; forgery (three
counts); fraudulent use of
personal identification infor-
mation; mortgage fraud
(eight counts); uttering forged
instruments (principal -
three counts); and mortgage
obtained by false
pretenses/statements (three
counts).
Her bond was set at
$191,000.
Rincones, 25000 block
Aysen Drive, Port Charlotte,
was arrested and charged
with grand theft and unlaw-
ful use of a notary commis-
-sion. Her bond was set at
$18,000.
Propp, 1400 block
Southwest Circle, Arcadia,
also was arrested and charged
with grand theft and unlawful
use of a notary commission.
Her bond was set at $18,000.
Sold
Investigators claim that
Weatherly, as co-owner of the
Brentwood Drive residence,
contacted the other co-owner
and asked that he sign already
prepared refinance papers,
but did not tell him that she
was preparing to sell the
house.
He said he would not sign
the papers until his lawyer
reviewed them.
With that, investigators
claim, Weatherly and the
other co-conspirators forged
Doe's signature on sales doc-
uments, which Rincones ille-
gally notarized.
Detectives said Weatherly,
Propp and Rincone generat-
.ed and put the paperwork
through the Gulfcoast Title
Insurance Agency.
The forged documents
also were given to the county
clerk's office for permanent
record.
The women also were able
to induce banks to fund a
mortgage of more than
$480,000.
An 'honest person'
Investigators also believe
that the women induced the
prospective buyers of the
Brentwood property to
assume a $247,000 mortgage
based upon forged and fraud-
ulent documents.
The women knowingly
submitted false or fraudulent
information to financial insti-
tutions, mortgage lenders,
buyers, sellers and the gov-
ernment through the Wells
Fargo Bank, and SouthTrust
Bank (Wachovia Mortgage
Bank).
The substantial but tainted
profits from the Brentwood
sale were used to finance the
fraudulent purchase of real
property in the 2400 block


block Palmetto Street.
Weatherly used two wit-
nesses on documents for the
sale of the Brentwood house.
She claimed the names were
just names."off the top of my
head." .
SShe claimed during a
police interview that she
would not lie and that she


was an "honest person."
In fact, the two names
Weatherly said came off the
top of her head were real peo-
ple who worked with her at
the car dealership and whose
names she forged.

sota, Inc., is asking the school
board for a deferral until
2006.
CEO Donald Robert told
the board in late May "we do
not feel we have made signifi-
cant enough progress to meet
our highest standards."
Chief among the Goodwill
Academy's problems is find-
ing a new home.
'Although we continue to
negotiate a suitable site, we
have not been successful as of
this time," Roberts said.
The Goodwill Academy, a
charter school whose con-
tract was already approved by
the board, intends to place its
students in Goodwill Indus-


tries jobs around Sarasota
County. The board is expect-
ed to approve the request.
Tax oversight
A tax oversight committee,
mandated by the Sarasota
County Commissioners, will
be dissolved under a recom-
mendation that will be con-
sidered by the board on June
7. A district-sponsored com-
mittee will assume its duties.
In 1997 the Sarasota
County Commissioners ap-
proved an ordinance requir-
ing the school board to create
a Citizen Tax Oversight
Committee to annually
review expenditures of the


Dr. Holguin, MD


Local Infrastructure Surtax
(sales tax). The school board
formed the Citizen Tax
Oversight Committee for this
sole purpose.
Since then, the district cre-
ated the Financial Advisory
Committee to review overall
school district finances. The
board intends to officially dis-
solve the Citizen Tax
Oversight Committee. Its sin-
gle purpose responsibility
would be assumed by the
Financial Advisory Commit-
tee.

Hiner's three hits can't save St. Pete College


Titans drop 6-3 game in
JUCO World Series.
BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

A.J. Hiner and his St.
Petersburg College team-
mates gave it their best shot.
They just came up a little
short.
Playing in the finals of the
Junior College World Series
Saturday, St. Pete had to settle


for second best following a 6-
3 loss to New Mexico Junior
College at Suplizio Field in
Grand Junction, Co.
New Mexico finished a
perfect 5-0 in the week-long
tournament. St. Pete was 3-2.
Hiner, a 2004 Venice High
grad, could hold his head
high. He had a great five
games and played perhaps
his finest in defeat Saturday
Hiner, the Titans shortstop,
finished 3-for-4 and figured in


both of his team's rallies in the
fourth and eight innings.
Hiner struck out his first time
up but delivered three
straight singles. His hit in the
fourth was his team's first off
of winning pitcher Cody
Harkcom. In the field, Hiner
handled eight chances flaw-
lessly.
Over the five games, Hiner
was 7-for-21 (.333) and didn't
commit an error.
St. Pete starter Kyle Ginley


simply didn't have it, as New
Mexico scored six runs over
the first three innings. A four-
run third inning put New
Mexico in charge, 6-0.
*
Both Auburn and
Mississippi State won NCAA
Division I regional openers
Friday and played winners'
bracket games Saturday night.
Venice has a player on
each squad, pitcher Arnold
Hughey on Auburn and out-


fielder Brian Laninfa on
Mississippi State.
Hughey was the starting
and winning pitcher Friday in
the Tigers' 13-5 victory over
South Alabama in the
Tallahassee Regional being
played at Florida State.
Hughey improved his sea-
son record to 8-4. He threw 5
1/3 innings, surrendering six
hits. He walked two and
struck out three. Hughey left
the game with an 8-4 lead.


Auburn (33-24) advanced'
to Saturday night's game
against Florida State.
Meanwhile, Laninfa was
the starting left fielder for
MSU, which defeated Florida,
Atlantic, 13-2, in the Miami:
Regional opener ,Friday.
Laninfa was 1-for-3 with a,.
single. r
MSU (41-20), now ranked

This is always an exciting
time as youngsters from liter-
ally all around the world are
awaiting phone calls to see if
they will be a part of tourna-
ment play in the hope of
making it to Williamsport
Pennsylvania come August.
Although the focus of this
event is on the 12-year-old
teams, there is some great
competition at the 9-and 10-
year old level, as well as junior
(13-14 year olds) and senior
(15-16) leagues.
Having had the privilege of
being a coach, a managerand
a daddy at all of these levels,
and of course having engaged
in some of my own knuckl-
headom along 'the way, I


thought I would pass on a few
pearls for all of you out there
about how to participate in
this worthwhile endeavor.
Pearl No. 1. Mommy and
daddy, realize that this is a
highly competitive event and
the object of these games is to
win. The manager is respon-
sible for making the game
decisions to accomplish that
goal. Support him in that
effort and if your all star does-
n't play in a game or two
along the way, or his role is
not as prominent as you
would like it to be, tell him to
hang in there, keep working
hard and be ready when his
time comes.
Pearl No. 2. Manager, real-
ize that you are putting this
team together that it is an all-
star team. Have a plan and let
each kid know before each
game what their specific role
will be. No matter how limit-
ed that role may be, more
often than not, he will be
happy to fill it if you let him
know what it is and how
important it is to the team.
Pearl No. 3. Daddy, do not
coach from the stands. Let
the coaches and managers
handle that job. Your coach-
ing from the stands will only
confuse your kid and place
more pressure on him than
he already has. Be supportive
and encouraging and leave
the constructive criticisms to
those on the other side of the
fence. I once watched a
daddy follow his 10-year-old


County Cup now pushed back to Monday


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Once again, the Sarasota County Cup Little League
Tournament has been put on hold.
Originally scheduled to begin Wednesday, die stalling
date was pushed back to Saruiday because of all of the rain
during the week.
While there was no measurable rain Friday night and
Saturday morning at Twin Lakes Park, officials decided to
move back the first games to Monday night.
The County Cup is an annual event involving 11-12 year-
old (NMajors t; eams from all the different leagues in Sarasota.
Venice Little League is sending all 11 of its teams to play in
the towunamrent.
An inspection of the four fields Saturday morning found
no standing water.,
"The county closed all the fields. They said they were too
wet-and if we played on them we would tear them up,"
Venice Litle League president Dave Morse said.
The fact that the upcoming District 16 All-Star
Tournaments also being played at Twin Lakes starting in July
is no doubt also coming into play.
The way it now stands, the County Cup can still be fin-
ished by June 15 if there is no more rain. The forecast for the
coming week isn't all that promising.
Some teams will now have to play doubleheaders next
Saturday. Officials maybe forced to play games next Sunday.


to the bullpen and then say
something to him on every
warm up pitch. He then fol-
lowed him to his at bat, stood
behind the screen to contin-
ue his coaching. He watched
him take strike three. (No,
surprise to me, the kid didn't
know whether to punt, pass
or kick). Daddy then fol-


lowed him back to the
bullpen and said leave the at
bat behind you and focus.
Good advice, however he
then blasted the kid with
"how could you not swing?"
Don't do that.
Pearl No. 4. Manager and
coaches, remember that you
are entrusted with all of these

make a deep and profound
impact upon every kid on
your team. With that comes a
tremendous responsibility,
don't shirk it. Don't coddle

Saying goodbye to dad


Golf is a funny game. When
I recall golf memories, lots of
good times come to mind.
There are also bittersweet
memories as well. I was

thinking about my dad last
weekend. Dad was a veteran
and it was Memorial Day, but
I was thinking of a different
time. The last round of golf I
ever played with my dad was
almost three years ago now,
and I couldn't help but think
about him last weekend.
My dad was into a lot of
things when I was a kid. He
was a fisherman/diver for
most of my youth. As he got
older, he got into skeet shoot-
ing and golf. Golf was some-
thing we had in common. I
loved playing with him
because he was a blast.
Anyone who has ever played
with me will know that play
well or horrible, we're gonna
have a good time. I got that
from him.
Dad passed away last
September at 59 much too
young and very unexpectedly.
I always thought we'd have a
chance to tee it up again. One
of the things I received from
him after he died was his golf
clubs. Two sets plus all the fix-
ins. You know, about a million
tees, three ball retrievers, four
umbrellas, a score watch,
more Top Flights and Moli-
tors than you could shake a
stick at, and, of course, a two-
way chipper I gave him a long
time ago. He loved that chip-
per.
Anyway, while at a com-
pany picnic last weekend,
we were in Englewood on
the Gottfried Creek. It was
just the kind of place my dad
would have loved. Right on
the water, barbecue flying,
people having a good time.
So I decided to do some-
thing for my dad right there
on the spot. I went home
and went through all the
pockets in his bags and
retrieved all the rocks I


Michael Lamond
THE ZONE


could find.
I returned to the picnic,
fully armed to give dad's
ammo a proper burial. It
might sound funny, but I felt
that if dad can't hit 'em, ain't
nobody gonna hit 'em. So
down to the waterline I go,
fully convinced that there's
no way I can carry this
waterway, no matter how
hard I try. So it's bombs away
and they're going every-
where. Splash here, sploosh

there. As I got down to the
last few balls, I started think-
ing about dad more and
more. I don't think I showed
it, but I was. -So, I get down
to the last three balls, one
for dad, one for my brother
and orpe just for me. I figured
I would try my best to make
dad proud. First ball goes
way out and finds the briny
deep. Second ball I take a lit-
tle more time, make a good
setup and hit one of the best
drives I've ever stuck. It flies
long, it flies far, it stays in the
air forever it seems and then
... no splash, just a thud as it
caroms off the pool cage of
the folks across the way. I
just knew that the old man
was there carrying that ball
and I felt more at ease with
his passing. The third ball? It
went about forty yards
before nose diving into the
water. Guess dad still has a
sense of humor. See ya.

Computer places area in hurricane danger zone


Unlike most trackers, Tom Berg predicts where'
hurricanes will strike and he thinks the chance
one will strike Southwest Florida is more than 80
percent.


BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER

You are not going to like
what Tom Berg sees ahead for
us this summer.
Actually, it's not what the
Mobile, Ala., computer sys-
tems designer personally
sees. It's what a computer
program that he wrote pro-
jects. By day, Berg is a com-
puter programmer with a 42-
year obsession with hurri-
canes.
That focus led him to cre-
ate a program that considers
19 present atmospheric and
oceanic factors that are
known to influence tropical
system formation, strength-
ening and direction of travel.
He combines that informa-
tion with records from all
hurricane seasons since 1950,
when detailed records began
being kept.
In a computer, all of this
comes together with a singu-
lar purpose.
What will this hurricane
season be like? How many
storms? Where will they form?
Where will they make land-
fall?
Essentially, his program
takes today's influences and
compares them with those
known to exist in past seasons
- and the storm tracks from
those seasons. The computer
brings all factors together and
projects an entire season of
hurricane landfalls.
Last year, Berg's program
performed well.
In July, he projected a
storm to hit the west coast of
Florida in August. Charley
made landfall in Charlotte


Harbor on Aug. 13.
In August, his September
projection put the East Coast
of Florida in danger of a land-
falling hurricane. Frances and
Jeanne made the projection
come true.
Which brings us to what
his program sees for 2005.
High probability
Last December, Berg first
asked the computer program
to project the upcoming June
1 to Nov. 30 Atlantic hurricane
season. The first run placed
the west coast of Florida from
Homestead to Apalachicola
in a "high probability" zone.

ON THE WEB
Further scientific explanation
of how computer program-
mer Tom Berg does his projec-
tions can be found at his Web
site, hurricanealley.net.

The only other area of the
United States at high proba-
bility, his program said, was
the area from Panama City to
New Orleans.
The areas hit last year by
Charley and Ivan would be
targets again in 2005.
But the projections were
broad.
In the following months,
the computer narrowed and
refined landfall potentials as
conditions changed. April,
Berg said by telephone from
his office in Mobile, is the
month when projections
become certain in his mind.
The pattern for the summer is
set. No more changes.
By May, the projections


should have their highest
accuracy.
In Berg's final projection
before the season begins, and
before he begins month-
ahead projections, there are
four "high probability" land-
fall areas in the U.S. part of
the Texas Gulf coast, the cen-
tral Gulf coast, the Georgia-
South Carolina border area
and the west coast of Florida
from Fort Myers to Tarpon
Springs.
As far as the National
Hurricane Center is con-
cerned, specific projections
cannot be made. The center
says so on its Web site. Only
Dr. William Gray of Colorado
State University gets the cen-.
ter's support when he pre-
dicts the number of storms,'
their intensity and general
landfall areas.
Berg shrugs off Gray.
"What good is that infor-
mation?" he asks. "Tell me if
one's going to hit me and if
you can't do that, what differ-
ence does it make?"
70 million hits
Gray in essence shrugged
off Berg in a recent speech at
the National Hurricane
Conference, saying anyone
who purports to project land-
fall destinations is "lying."
Gray has called for an above-
average season in 2005 and
with an above-average threat
for Florida. He does not spec-
ify landfalls the way Berg
does.
Berg said he asked the hur-
ricane center to consider his
projections.
"They asked where I was
published," he said. He has
not been "published" nor has
his program been subjected
to scientific examination.
Thus rebuffed, Berg took his
message to the Internet at!
hurricanealley.net beginning


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF HURRICANEALLEY.NET.
Landfall dangers along the Atlantic and gulf coasts are graphically illustrated in this map.


in 1999.
And he found an audience.
Last season, his Web site
had 70 million hits from peo-
ple looking at his maps, read-
ing his information, consider-
ing his precautions.
Doubters can click on
maps of past predictions and
draw their own conclusions.
More than 80 percent
When they click on May
2005, they'll look at a map
that paints our area red for
"high probability." Berg said
high probability can be
thought of as "likely to be hit."


He's not certain, of course.
No one can be, he admits,
and maybe there can never
be absolute certainty. But he
adds about our area's chances
of being hit, "It's not just
greater than 70 percent (as
the maps show). I don't know
if you want to print this, but
it's above 80 percent."
It won't be just any storm,
either, he said.
"The Yucatan Channel and
Cuba that's where they'll
come through again this
year," he said of the storms
that will impact Florida and
the north central gulf. "They


will be long-tracking Cape
Verde-type storms coming
through the Caribbean."
That's where Charley and
Ivan came from. Cape Verde
storms usually occur late
August through September.
But this year won't repeat
last year.
"Last year was an unusual
event, as far as Florida goes,
with four hurricanes," Berg
said. "It was a rare event and
probably won't happen again
this year."

North Port may be a good fit for Charlotte Co.


North Port moving to Charlotte County?
The idea one that has surely been
broached privately on numerous occa-
sions was publicly floated by Sarasota
County Commission Chairman Paul Mercier
recently. The more we think about it, the
more Mercier's idea is worth discussing. And,
at the same time, why shouldn't Sarasota
County throw in its portion of Englewood?
Mercier says his comments were taken out
of context, but that North Port and Charlotte
County are a logical match. The county com-
mission chairman may have only been jok-
ing about allowing the county's southern-
most city to move to Charlotte County, but he
certainly made a good case in favor of the
switch.
In a guest column Friday, Mercier said:
The Charlotte County government head-

You may be sick of hearing
it; I certainly am: Why would.
any sane person change
something as loveable and,
successful as the Wednesday
and Saturday Gondolier Suns
we used to publish?
We tried to explain why
when we did it, but the debate
has continued and been
greater than that about height
restrictions, water, roads or
any issue facing us. Only
Danika Patrick of Indy 500
fame has got as much atten-
tion recently.
I had decided I wasn't
going to open this up again,
but I got a letter from
Geoffrey Phillips in response
to a letter I sent him explain-
ing why we had taken the
course we had. He suggested I
pass that on to you.
In the last couple of years
our papers have grown in
size, which has created some
wonderful problems. One of
the major ones was we
became constrained by our
production and press capa-
bilities. We just always didn't
have enough units of press to
print all we. wanted to.
We had a lot more great
local news that we could not
get into the paper, in part
because of the equipment
limitations. We also have
advertisers that like a variety
of days to run their ads, and
we constrained them at
times.
So we needed'to expand
and were faced with what
days to pick. Most of you
won't remember, but we have
done three days before. And
one thing common in our
business is there are some
days better to publish than
others. There are just some
days that advertisers are not
particularly interested in, for
whatever reason.
Monday certainly is one of
those days. We had tried
Monday and that was a mis-
erable flop. Tuesday might be
better, but causes a real
dilemma for us as a lot of
breaking news happens on
Tuesday: city,council, school
board, county commission,
high school sports and many
committee meetings. It just
didn't make sense to miss all
this great news.
If there has been anything
consistent in our publishing,
it has been having a midweek
product, especially Wednes-
day. There was a short time in


quarters is much closer for North Port resi-
dents.
Both Charlotte County and North Port
were created by General Development Corp.
- and, we might add, they share many of the
problems related to that group's shortsight-
edness.
North Port wants a hospital, and,
Charlotte County has one. (North Port still
deserves its own, however).
Charlotte County has no evacuation
sites, but North Port does.
To Mercier's points, we would also add:
Charlotte County and North Port share
expenses and responsibilities for a couple of
major roads, including Toledo Blade
Boulevard.
North Port residents spend much of their
disposable income in Charlotte County at the


our 59-year history when we
went to Thursday instead of
Wednesday, but we pretty
quickly went back.
With Wednesday a given,
that meant we needed two
more days. We did not want
two days together; we tried
that before and that just fell
on its face. While there is a lot
of news, not often is there
enough in one day to do the
trick. That sort of made it log-.
ical to go with Wednesday,
Friday and Sunday.
Friday is a good day for lots
of readers, and advertisers get
in front of people who want to
shop on their only'available
day, Saturday. Sunday is also a
great advertiser and reader
day.
Of course, as many of you
have pointed out, that meant
moving off our very popular
Saturday product. We hated
that but just could not see a
way around it. And it meant
people getting the daily prod-
uct would have a lot of read-
ing on Sunday.
Those are the downsides
and the tradeoffs we have to
live with. We hoped if people
found it uncomfortable that
they would hold their Sunday
paper until Monday. We
endeavor to reach your door
very early Sunday so you can
read it before any other paper
comes. (I assume everyone is
an early bird like me).
We looked at the only other
paper doing three days in the
state, the Sebring Sun, and it
uses those three days.
It has helped with press
capacity, and I hope you have
enjoyed the big increase in
photos and news. Our pho-
tographer Jeff Tavares does a
spectacular job giving you
some great looks at things you
might not see.
We did all of this while
keeping the price at the two-
day rate. How often can you
say you get 50 percent more
for the same price? Not too
often.
I hope this helps you
understand how and why we
made the decision we made.

It is exciting that the coun-
ty has reached an agreement
on a water plan that will serve
the needs of our county for a
long time. If only the reservoir
were already built, we would
have filled it up in the last few
days of rain. Now I remember
why I was happy to get out of
New Jersey.

Town Center mall and other businesses that
are much closer than those in Sarasota.
Annexing a city, as opposed to vacant
land, is tricky but not impossible.
According to the Florida constitution,
Article VIII, section I, under Counties, a coun-
ty can be created, abolished or changed by
law. In other words, a legislator could spon-
sor the annexation during the 2006 legislative
session.
Why would Charlotte County want North
Port and its growth problems?
Financially, the deal might make sense for
both entities. North Port has problems keep-
ing up with roads, it has issues with garbage
collection and is behind in economic devel-
opment with few hotels and restaurants. The
city has also struggled with turnover at the
managerial level.


Editor:
In January 1997 I1 wrote to then-county commission chair-
man Bob Anderson requesting more parking for our cultural
center the library, community center and the art center. I
sent along photos of parked cars covering every blade of grass
around the retention pond.
Immediately "No Parking" signs went up. (Sorry!) I was
informed that no funds were available, but that I should try to
find private support.
In March 19971 requested a meeting with county personnel,
a Southwest FloridaWater Management District representative
and a local volunteer engineer. The bottom line was the reten-
tion pond had to stay. County people even recommended we
coordinate the three groups and plan our activities so that they
are not at the same time.
Finally, with the help of BobVedder, the property behind the
Herald-Tribune was purchased and in April 2002 we broke
ground at that site.
Bob Vedder is again mentioning using the area between the,
three entities as a park. With the expansion of the community
center, many new developments, the thousands of people who
fill those places, please don't forget we will need many more
parking spaces close to those buildings.
If, indeed, an area is set aside for a park-like atmosphere, at
least some of it should become a beautifully appointed parking
area.king will reduce the participation of all.
Lack of close-in parking will reduce the participation of all.

Editor:
This letter is in response to
new columnist Joyce
Hannah's article "Have a red
hat but won't wear it."
Dear Ms. Relic of the
Strident Revolution, aka
Hippy Generation Warrior!
As a proud member of the
nonsanctioned, 56-member
Red Hat Society group known
as the Bird Bay Birds of
Paradise, I take offense at
your rude remarks 'regarding
the 50-years-plus female


groups donning red hats and
purple dresses in order to feel
safe, confident, secure and
worthwhile.
The Red Hat Ladies I know
are devoted, dedicated and
respected wives, mothers
and, grandmothers who over
the years, yes, did indulge in
making Jell-O molds and bak-
ing cookies along with rais-
ing children; managing their
family households; assisting
as Scout leaders and room
mothers ... Several Red Hat
Ladies are involved in politics
at the local, state and national

But North Port offers a 40,000-resident tax
base and a possibility of 30,000 or more new
residents in five years. The city has not kept
pace with impact fees and upgrading those fees
to be more in line with those in Charlotte
County could boost the city's coffers.
Charlotte County could find itself someday
with three or four cities Punta Gorda, North
Port, Englewood and Port Charlotte, if and
when the later two decide to incorporate.
Sarasota County and North Port have fought
over income from tax-delinquent lots, over the
need for and who will payfor and operate recre-
ation facilities, roads and other issues for years.
The seeming disconnect between a county
commission enamored with the city of Sarasota
and based 15 miles away from North Port
makes the idea of annexation into Charlotte
County an idea worth considering.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! Do you support Waterford's plans Co a new
business district on the island? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Ignoring your school allowance
1 1 11


Bill mills. A good teacher would advise students to first deter-
mine their needs and then ask parents for an allowance to
cover the costs. The teacher would point out the allowance
should not be based on the value of the parents' property or
savings. Then why is Sarasota County School Superintendent
Gary Norris ignoring this prudent advice by seeking approval
for a new mill of property tax for his schools? A recent brochure
from the school board notes that the school millage tax we
approved on property three years ago has yielded $99 million,
a third more than the $75 million originally anticipated, just
because of rapidly inflating property values. This year alone the
take from our tax dollars was almost 50 percent more. I suspect
the school board hopes a fixed millage rate will again yield a
bonanza from rising property values. But what if property val-
ues fall and schools are underfunded? Set a good example for
your schools, Mr. Norris, by sensiblyfunding school needs. Ask
taxpayers to approve a maximum annual amount for your
budget for a five-year period, then each year submit your actu-
al budget needs to the property assessor. The property assessor
will then generate a millage rate on property to raise the need-
ed for your budget.


Snowbirds pay. I'm calling
about Mr. Herb Levine saying
snowbirds were the most
hated group in Venice. I'd like
to respond by saying we pay
more real estate taxes than he.
We do not use your schools,
your libraries or your parks.
We have been here for many
years and it's very hurtful to be
called hated. Also, I might
mention that when Floridians
come to Michigan for the cool
lakes during the summer, we
make them welcome and
we're glad to have them. I wish
that he would do the same.
Septic blues. How can a
house that was built 55 years
ago with the original septic
system a house that at the
time was two bedrooms, one
bath now be sold as four
bedrooms, a screened porch
made into a bedroom in the
back, and two baths, with the
same septic system? How can
the county allow something
like that, that could be
mobbed with people? How
will the septic system accom-
modate a huge number of
people in four bedrooms.
Aren't there zoning ordi-
nances of any kind?
Sand volleyball. I'm in
favor of a volleyball court at
the new city park on the
beach. The court at Venice
Beach is used all the time, and
it's good to see the young peo-
ple having such a good time.
Protect manatees. I'm call-
ing in reference to the call
about the manatees. I can't
believe someone would feel
that way about one of our
endangered species. Man
causes more damage to the
ecosystem than one manatee
could ever do. I just feel it's
totally awful for someone to
thank that way about a
defenseless animal. It's up to us
to take care of them so that our
children can enjoy the same
things we've enjoyed for years.
Gonna burn. This is in
regard to the Let'em Have It
call about killing the mana-
tees. That is a very mean thing
to say, and whoever said it is
going to hell.
More manatees. I'm
absolutely disgusted with the
call about the manatees. I'd
love to find out where that
doctor works; I'd never go
there. Take 1-75 north and
don't slow down.
Spider bites I just wanted


to ask if someone could write
an article about the dangers
of being bitten by a spider. I
heard that one of the priests
had been bitten and is very
seriously ill. A lot of people
don't know about the brown
recluse spider that's so terri-
bly dangerous.
Peacemakers. I just read a
phrase; it was Matthew 5:59:
"Blessed are the peacemak-
ers, for they will be called the
children of God." Wonder
whose child our fearless
leader is? He's certainly not a
peacemaker, and he profess-
es to be really close to his
maker. I don't think that adds
up very well.
Travel Channel. I'm 'a
Comcast cable user and I
noticed that we don't have the
Travel Channel. When I called,
they said there weren't enough
* calls for it. It's an excellent
channel, and I think most peo-
ple would like to watch it. They
said to tell our friends and
neighbors to call. So, friends
and neighbors, give them a
call and ask for the Travel
Channel. I bet you'll enjoy it.
Expensive woodpecker.
This could be headlined $10
million woodpecker. The
papers reported the sighting of
an ivory-billed woodpecker,
and Interior Secretary Gale
Norton immediately
announced a $10 million fund
to bolster restoration of the Big
Woods of Southern Arkansas.
That's for the birds, when we
have people living in Punta
Gorda and Port Charlotte in
trailers and houses unfit for
human habitation, and we
throw $10 million at a single
woodpecker. Unbelievable.
Bus shelters. If they could
put up those little plastic
cubicles they have in other
towns to keep people waiting
for the bus out of the rain,
that would be nice.
Duh! This is for those
unfortunate, misguided peo-
ple who moved next to an air-
port and wonder why they
hear all that airport noise,
such as planes taking off and
landing: Duh! Let's all band
together and move them out
east of town, maybe out past
Myakka State Park. But then
they would probably com-
plain and whine about the
birds and cows. You people
need to get a life.
Move 'em out. I feel Sarasota

County should, allow low-
income housing on the out-
skirts of Venice, not downtown
in the business area. Give them
a park; give them what they
want. WhenI went through just
to view the conditions, there
were cars with flat tires, clothes
hanging on clotheslines. Give
them an area where they can
live and be happy, and not have
to be ridiculed every day for
what they're doing.
Bad choice. I read with inter-
est the story on future plans for
Grove Terrace. By chance, a TV
show on public housing and
crime appeared the night
before the article. That show
focused on a place called
Liberty City in Miami. It
showed buildings that had to
be abandoned after only seven
years. The reason: people
stacked like cordwood in
multi-story buildings. The
same problem caused the huge
Cabrini Green project in,
Chicago to have to be torn
down at great cost and
replaced with one- and two-
story townhouses for the poor.
Multi-story buildings and
Crowding ,people fito ,small:
spaces is a sure-fire way to fail-
ure, increased crime and a
monumental waste of taxpayer
money.
Overexposure. I'd title this
"Overkill." The average DUI
under Police Beat rates four to
six lines. The owner of Sharky's
rates three columns for the
same charge. Nothing sensa-
tional about the arrest. Who did
he offend to rate this exposure?
EDITOR'S NOTE: He received
the same treatment given other
prominent citizens who are arrest-
ed have received.
End construction. I'm calling
about "Height restrictions are a
joke": I agree 1,000 percent. I
think it's absolutely shameful
what city council has done.
Now they've gone ahead and
are going to have 255 parking
places next to Sharky's. What
are they trying to do to this
place? It was so lovely, with
such a nice village atmosphere,
with people walking dogs, rid-
ing bicycles. Now we have
these Lear jets and that terrible
smell all over the place. Let's
have a moratorium. Let's have
no more big buildings any-
where. Let them go elsewhere.
Let them go to Noith Port.

In this area, travel by boat

Breathalyzer challenge gets boost


BYTOMMYMCIN1YRE
STAFF WRITER


Hundreds of area DUI
cases could be dropped if
Sarasota County judges fol-
low the lead of judges in
Seminole County.
'All judges (four) in
Seminole County tossed out
all DUI breath tests," Venice
attorney Robert Harrison
said.
Harrison was asked how
likely it was that judges here
might follow their counter-
parts in Seminole County.
"It's a real possibility," he
said.
The cases were jettisoned
because DUI defendants and
their attorneys cannot get
information about how the
breathalyzers work, from the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement or the manufac-
turer.
The manufacturers of the
machine called Intoxilyzer
5000 will not give up the
information, claiming it is a
trade secret.
Lawyers for DUI defen-
dants say without that knowl-
edge, they cannot challenge
the validity of the test.


All four of Seminole
County's criminal judges
have been using a standard
that if a DUI defendant asks
for a key piece of information
about how the machine
works and the state cannot
provide it, the breath test is
rejected, the Orlando Sentinel
recently reported.
Seminole prosecutors
have said they do not know
-how many drunken drivers
have been acquitted as a
result. But Gino Feliciani, the
misdemeanor division chief
in Seminole County's State
Attorney's Office, said the
conviction rate has dropped
to 50 percent or less.
Seminole County judges
have been following the lead
of County Judge Donald
Marblestone, who in January
ruled that although the infor-
mation may be a trade secret
and controlled by a private
contractor, defendants are
entitled to it.
Disagreement
Meanwhile, in a Sarasota
court, Harrison is waging the
same battle on a different
front.
"The computer program


CTeritaye MVemo
CREMATION & FUNERAL SERVICES, INC.


they use here in Venice is dif-
ferent than the one used in
Sarasota, and they are both
certified," Harrison said. "I
want to know which one is
correct (according to the
manufacturer) and that is
what they will not, or cannot,
tell me."
According to- Harrison,
Sarasota County'Judge David
Dinkins said Friday he want-
ed to hear more testimony
before he will force the state
to turn over the information.
The state has argued that it
cannot be forced to turn over
something it does not have or
reveal trade secrets.
The Sarasota court reject-
ed that notion, as did the
Seminole court.
Judges in other Florida
counties have ruled the state
cannot turn over something it
does not possess, and the
manufacturer should not
have to turn over trade
secrets.
Another hearing in the
Sarasota courts is scheduled
for Wednesday.

LANDSCAPING & GARDENING
We are having a time change at Duke Garden Center. The new hours
for the summer are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
I Now is the time to watch for insects in your lawn. When the
temperature is over 70 degrees the insects are busy working on your,
lawn. In Florida you really need to watch for brown spots growing in
size. If you see this you need to bring in a sample of your lawn and
some of the soil so that we can look for insects. Remember we have
something to treat your lawn that is successful. Come by and talk to
us about this product.
Reminder if you haven't fertilized your Citrus tree remember that you
can still do so at this time. The tree will ever be in your debt. It
wouldn't hurt to water it as well. Things are pretty dry.
We have roses on sale at this time. $20.00 a piece while they
last.
Remember DUKE GARDEN CENTER has a landscaping WINNER
service also. Come in and talk to us about what you want
done and we will see if we can come up with the perfect

KNOW WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU BUILD.....
To protect Florida's fragile waterways, the DEP requires an Environmental
Resource Permit for dredging or filling activities within wetlands or surface
waters, which includes the construction of docks, seawalls, riprap, or other
shoreline armament methods. If you are planning a project that includes
any of the activities listed above, you may need a permit from DEP prior to
construction, as well as written authorization from DEP to use the State's

LOOKING FOR REGULAR INCOME?
CONSIDER BONDS.

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

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

Happy

hurricane

season

It's officially here. I know
you join me in sending posi-
tive thoughts to the universe
asking that all storms just
blow on past Venice.
North Port Glenallen Ele-
mentary School recently cele-
brated its 21styear with a spe-
cial birthday party reunion.
Dr. Gary Norris, Dr. Kathy
Kleinlein and John Zoritich
were on hand, as were former
principal's Barbara Needle-
man, Lowell Hackett, Steve
Dragon and Tom Coulson.
It was fun to hear principal
Joan Bower tell the audience
the school started in 1984
with 480 students and 27 staff
members. Today there are
1,274 students, 144 staff and
42 portables. As' one of the
teachers who helped open the
school, it was fun to be part of
the celebration.
Around town
I had a chance to hear Dee
McStravick speak in Venice
recently about the poverty in
Haiti. When she traveled to this
country last year, she was
struck by their needs so she
opened an orphanage to house
18 children. There are still
many needs but the boys and
girls ages 2 to .16 are thriving.
Dee introduced Laine Du-
jour, director of the orphan-
age, and her two adopted
daughters from Haiti, Melila
and Medjina. Both girls at-
tend Venice schools.
Nancy Pike and Dr. Tom
Collins introduced Pulitzer
Prize-winning author Tracy
Kidder to about 350 people at
the Church of the Nazarene.
The author of the One Book
One Community book,
"Mountains Beyond Moun-
tains" gave some great anec-
dotals to his book.
Included in the audience
was Venice Gondolier colum-
nist Lorraine Coccaro, who
encouraged me to read the
book several weeks ago when
I sat with her at a luncheon.
In honor of his birthday, City
Manager Marty Black gave
everyone at city hall the day off.
Now, before you call "Let Em
Have It" you might want to
know Marty's birthday fell on
Memorial Day this year.
Chef extraordinaire
If your travels take you to
Asheville, N.C., stop in at the
Biltmore House and enjoy a
meal at their famous Bistro.
One of their special chefs is
Venice High graduate Joseph
LaCross. He has received sev-
eral awards from the organi-
zation. His goal is to be a pas-
try chef, so he also works once
a week at the Chocolate Fetish
store near the estate. Joseph
graduated from the Art In-
stitute of Fort Lauderdale.
Back in town
It was nice to see Janice
Mee in Venice for a gradua-
tion party. This former school
board member is involved as
a volunteer and child advo-
cate in Sarasota.
Pat on the back
Marilynn Wheatley cer-
tainly deserves an award for
stepping up at the last minute
to help organize the Youth
Opera Program in South
County. Thanks to her efforts,
more than 100 students saw
"The Little Sweep Youth
Opera" free of charge.


Work is under way for the children's fountain downtown. Plans for the fountain have been in the works for 15 years.





Fountain for youth






will cool you off


STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER
et your rubber duckies, downtown
Venice has a cooling spot under
construction with the new children's
fountain.


This summer could be the
hottest in Florida history, and
while dragging their feet
down the egg-frying side-
walks of Venice Avenue resi-
dents and visitors can cool off
in a new fountain.
The idea of the fountain
started to flow about 15 years
ago when it was first consid-
ered by the Venice MainStreet
Association. Things really
started streaming with a grant
from the Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Venice.
"The idea started in '91,"
MainStreet board member
Nancy Drake said. "Venice
MainStreet stepped up to the
plate and said, 'let's make this


happen.' They've been so
supportive."
The new fountain will not
only relieve the dehydrated
but also serve as one more
unique aspect to the down-
town area.
Bricks for bucks
T-shirts have been one of
the ways to raise money for
the fountain, but now resi-
dents can buy personalized
bricks for the fountain. The
bricks, at $100 each, will be
engraved at the contributor's
request.
"It's a really nice thing to be
able to do," Drake said. "One
person I know is doing it in

The fountain is located neXt to the Kentucky Military Institute
memorial where bands have played and people have danced.


memory of his father."
Construction started, in
April and is expected to be
finished sometime this sum-
mer. It is a new breed of foun-
tain that can be controlled
and filtered from a remote
computer. Drake said the
computer, located in Jack-
sonville, will regulate the
fountain, controlling the tim-
ing and how high it can shoot,
spurt, or bubble.
"There will be four arch
jets shooting to the center.
Then there will be two small
bubblerss' on the sides of the
fountain for smaller children.
Ten more 'pop' jets will be
installed. Sixteen total."
LED lights will illuminate
the fountain at night. A drink-
ing fountain and shower will
also be installed. The foun-
tain itself is approximately 40
feet in diameter.
Safety
"I especially did a lot of


research prior to finding
Delta Fountains because I
didn't want any of the health
risks associated with chil-
dren's fountains. This foun-
tain was designed with safety
the first thing in mind," Drake
said in reference to other
cases of bacteria in fountains.
"This fountain will be state-
of-the-art with the best filtra-
tion system."
This idea of- children's
fountains has just shot out
because Delta fountains is
doing so many of them all
over the state of Florida now.
People are seeing the advan-
tage of having them in down-
town communities because
they draw people.
According to City Utilities
Manager Chris Sharek, this
fountain will be different
from other cities' fountains
that have run into problems.
"They didn't have the
water treatment systems that
they have today," he said. "We


wanted to make sure that
water quality wouldn't be an
issue with our fountain."
Sharek said a holding tank
is turned over every 30 min-
utes. The more frequently this
tank it turned over, the more
filtration and disinfection
occurs. There are four levels
of purification/disinfection
included iri the design: sand
filtration, cartridge filtration,
ultraviolet disinfection and
chlorination.
"Liquid chlorine will be
used to maintain a residual
level similar to that of com-
mercial swimming pools,"
Sharek said. "This kills most
of the bacteria. The UV disin-
fection unit is to kill the virus-
es that may survive the chlori-
nation process." '
Four employees of the
city's public works staff at-
tended a swimming pool cer-
tification course in prepara-

Beauty of the Southern Magnolia

Cl,

Every time I get a glimpse
of a Southern Magnolia, mag-
nolia grandiflora L. tree, I
can't help but relate to the
movie with a similar name,
"Steel Magnolias." Known for
their beauty, grace and
charm, as well as their re-
sourcefulness and inner
strength, Steel Magnolias re-
flect the values cultivated by
women of the Southern
states.
One good thing about
being a garden columnist for
the local newspaper is the
ability to write about things I


love. The magnificent South-
ern Magnolia tree is one of
them and in the last weeks,
they have come into full leaf
and creamy-white bloom. It's
as if someone had just waxed
their leaves with lemon
pledge, so shiny and crisp
they look. Blossoms are so
perfect, they look silk. The
humidity and rains we've
experienced lately have made
the magnolia leaves glisten.
A better specimen tree you
cannot find ... an excellent
focal point for the yard.
The reason I'm writing
about them today is that two
people have approached me
in the past weeks about their
sickly magnolias. At first it
was a neighbor. My neighbor
invited me across the street
to see his tree. It needed some
help and another friend had
advised him to use an acid
fertilizer. Now I have always
been taught that when some-
thing is sick, you try to find
out what is wrong first, then
treat it accordingly, and hold
off on any fertilizer. This is
one of the rules of thumb I
live by. Not that I'm always
right, of course, I just know
what works best for me.. At
first I thought the hurricane
did its damage, but now I'm

hearing about other Southern
Magnolias, and particularly
one in Venice, obviously suf-
fering from the same illness.
It's my best guess it needs a
fungicide, and I gave my
neighbor a mild dust to try. If
there are any extension
agents or anyone out there
who can help, please send me
an e-mail about how to nurse
these beautiful trees back to
health. I will pass along any
suggestions.


Life can be very simple. I
think of it every time I smell
a freshly cut lawn.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I love my new hearing
aids but the batteries don't
last as long as they did in
my old hearing aid. Why?
A. In the days of traditional
hearing aid circuits, the drain
on a battery could be
compared to a spigot attached
to a water bucket. The water
(energy) flowed out of the
bucket (cell) at a fixed rate
whenever the spigot was
opened. In contrast, today's
advanced digital hearing
instruments present a far
more complex challenge.
Power demands can rise and
fall depending on what
processing functions the
digital circuit is performing
at the time. Returning to the
water-bucket analogy, this
would be like rapidly opening
and closing the spigot,
making the water run fast or
slow. Thus, a digital hearing
aid may operate for the same
period of time as an analog
circuit, but the rate of energy
that has flowed out of the
battery during that time can
change radically. Thus digital
hearing instruments tend to
have more complex testing
practices for accurate
measurement of battery
performance. Generally
speaking, the smaller the
battery size, the shorter the
battery life. A small size 10
battery should last
approximately 10 days; large
size batteries can last as long
as 30 days. If your currently
hearing aid batteries are not
lasting at least 10 days, the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Center
can perform a test to
determine if your hearing aid
has a circuit problem which
is draining the battery. Call us
at 492-4327 to schedule an
appointment today.

WEARING BRACES
There are certain things an orthodontic patient must do if excellent
results are to be achieved. Here are some do's and don't:
* Keep all appointments and follow all instructions. Wear appliances,
elastics, retainers, etc., for the periods prescribed. Keep a written
record of the hours a headgear or appliance is worn.
* Take good care of your appliances. Have a specific place to store
removable appliances, elastics, etc., where they won't be lost, damaged
or available for the dog to chew. Let your orthodontist do any
necessary adjustments. When taking part in active sports, take out
removable appliances, and protect fixed ones with a mouth guard.
* Brush your teeth after every meal and snack. Keep removable
appliances clean. Irrigators and flossing are helpful but don't replace
the brush. Avoid sweets and see your regular dentist for checkups.
* Avoid hard or sticky foods. This may include nuts, caramels, and
crunchy snacks. Never chew ice or gum, even if it's sugarless.

Medicare Advantage has some advantages


JIM MILLER


Dear Savvy Senior,
I've been reading a lot about
the new Medicare legislation
and the Part D prescription
drug benefit coming in 2006,
but I'm enrolled in an HMO
through Medicare+Choice. I did
it three years ago because .it was
a little less expensive and
because it offered more bene-
fits, but I've heard little about
the legislative changes to Part
C. Can you get me caught up on
any new adjustments to the
Medicare+Choice plan? -
Uninformed Eddy
Dear Uninformed,
What has been known as
Medicare+Choice (Medicare's
managed care program)
since 1997, has gotten a
makeover and a new name.
It's now called Medicare
Advantage. Here's how it
breaks down.
Medicare currently pro-
vides health benefits to 41.7
million elderly and disabled
American, most of whom (88
percent) receive their bene-
fits through the original fee-
for-service program (Part A
and Part B), while only 11
percent are covered by pri-
vate managed health care
plans, now known as
Medicare Advantage.
Losing ground
The number of seniors
participating in managed
care programs has been on a
steep decline. There are 145
MA plans this year, com-
pared to 346 in 1998. And,


the number of seniors in the
plan has fallen from 6.3 mil-
lion in 2000 to 4.6 million.
The reason is health care and
prescription drug costs have
exploded, raising the average
out-of-pocket expenses for
Advantage beneficiaries from
$429 five years ago to $1,260
last year.
Medicare makeover
As part the 2003 Medicare
legislation, Congress not only
added.prescription drug ben-
efits for the traditional pro-
gram, but stepped up the
amount of money it pays MA
plans. This year and next, the
total amount of the increase
will be $1.3 billion, which
should result in lower costs
and improved benefits.
Depending on the MA
plan you're in, some of the
immediate advantages can
include:
Lower monthly premiums:
The average monthly premi-
um for MA plans is expected
to decrease $11 per month.
Expanded benefits: MA
plans can provide additional
services not covered by
Medicare such as routine
physical, drug benefits and
vision and hearing exams.
And, beginning in 2006, all
companies offering MA plans
(except private fee-for-ser-
vice plans and medical sav-
ing accounts) must offer at
least one plan with drug cov-
erage.
Expanding markets: MA
plan choices will be expand-
ed to include regional PPOs
to give those in rural area's
and those areas of the coun-
try not currently included
more choices.
Cost sharing: Some MA
plans will reduce the cost of
co-pays and deductibles.
Additional choices: Some
plans will offer, more choices
of doctors and hospitals.

ments to the Medicare
Advantage plans, there are
still some pitfalls to be aware
of, including:
MA plans are managed
care plans like HMOs, PPOs
and PSOs, which means that
you'll still have to choose a
doctor in the plan's network
or pay more to see one who
is not in it.
MA plans will be able to
change their benefits and
costs each year, and to
decide whether or not to
continue in a certain region,
which leaves you vulnerable
to their plan.
Beginning in 2006, benefi-
ciaries will be able to choose
only once a year, between
Nov. 15 and May 15, whether
to stay in a MA plan, switch
to another or return to tradi-
tional Medicare. In 2007 that
time period will shorten to
six weeks, between Nov. 15 to
Dec. 31.
Savvy note
Access to MA options will
vary greatly depending on
where you live and what
types of plans are available in
your community, however
the original fee-for-service
Medicare will continue to be
a choice in all areas.

Palliative care
Dear Savvy Senior,
I remember watching my
mother battle cancer nearly 30
years ago, and still recall the
suffering she endured when
medical care was a bit more
primitive. My father is still alive


but he now has lung cancer and
is on chemotherapy. He's doing
pretty well but is very sick and
uncomfortable and needs some
help. I've been hearing about an
option called "palliative care,"
but don't really understand it. Is
this something that might help
him, and if so, will his Medicare
cover it? Palliative Paul,
Dear.Paul,
It sounds like your dad is a
good candidate for palliative
care. Thanks to modern '
medicine, Americans are liv-
ing longer, with chronic and
advanced illness, than ever
before, which can be both
good and bad depending on
who you ask.
The problem is that
chronic illnesses, like heart
disease, diabetes, cancer and
Alzheimer's, can bring great,
physical and psychological
pain. Palliative care can help
provide some solutions.
Palliative care
Palliative care is special-
ized treatment thaf focuses
on relieving the pain and suf-
fering that often comes with
serious illness. Often mistak-
en for "end-of-life" hospice
care, palliative care is a ser-
vice that provides help to
patients at any stage of their
illness and life. It is also
designed to support any
other treatments a patient
receives by helping them live
comfortably throughout their
illness. Specifically, palliative
care:
Vigorously treats pain
and symptoms such as nau-
sea, fatigue, depression and
anxiety throughout illness.
Helps keep patients as
comfortable and active as
possible so they can pursue
meaningful daily activities.
Develops a plan for the
care a patient wants to
receive, and ensures that the
medical team coordinates to
provide that care.

Just wondering...


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST 0111 IUN!ST


Have you ever heard that
the saltwater of the ocean is
similar to the amniotic fluid
that surrounds an unborn
baby? At least my friend, Dr.
Robert Friar, an eminent biol-
ogist, tells me so. Is that why I
felt better when I jumped in
the waves and swam in the
gulf way back when?

Do you know why we say
that we learn something "by
heart"? The heart has many
functions, but I don'tthink
that is one of them.

Do you know why we say
someone plays an instrument
"by ear"? Now I ask you, have
you ever seen anyone play a
trumpet with his ear? I dunno!
******
Do you know why we say,
"on the other hand"? What
does the "other hand" have to
do with what we are saying?
We could just as easily say, "on
the other footZ

Why do I have a habit of
saying, "I may be all wet"
when I really mean, "I may be
all wrong"? It is seldom rain-
ing when I say "I may be all
wet," nor am I likely to be in a
swimming pool or the ocean.

Have you ever seen some-
one pay for something expen-
sive by donating "an arm and
a leg"?

Do you ever think about
how we mirror other people?
My wise son, Jim, pointed out
that we react differently to
each person we relate to. Do
you speak in the same way to
each child? I don't. What
about your friends? I react dif-
ferently to each of my three
tablemates according to their
personalities. If someone
speaks loudly on the phone,
do you speak the same way, or
do you speak softly, so the
other person will speak softly
too?

Where did we ever get the
spelling for "kleptomaniac"?
And how in the world did we
get the spelling for "colonel"
compared to "kernel" when
both are pronounced the
same? I dunno! And why is
colonel harder to spell than


general or admiral?

Why do we tell "small chil-
dren "Don't 'let the bed bugs
bite"? That is a terrible thing to
say to a child! It could make
them forever afraid to go to bed.
A helper of mine told me she
cringes every time she hears a "
parent or grandparent say that! I
just thought it was funny.

Why do TV or radio broad-
casters think that loud music
enhances news, ads, or
weather programs? The loud
music and racket drowns out
what is being said! I know I
am old and almost deaf but
even my high school age
helper says she is bothered by
the noise. The present culture
seems to demand that every-
thing be loud! Why? Do many
listeners become desensitized
to the noise? Do companies,
really sell more because they
make the commercials loud-
er, or do. more people just
turn them off of skip them?
******* *
Why is it that in reporting
high school activities, sports
events get almost all the cov-
erage given high school activ-
ities in the news media? This
particular trend has bothered
me for a long time. Sure, I
know athletics brings in
money, but, how can you
expect people to want to excel
in the arts or in scholarship
when they are not paid any
attention, monetary or other-
wise? What about chorus,
band, student government,
National Honor Society and
acting? Aren't those as impor-
tant as a touchdown? If some-
one shows promise in the act-
ing field, does he or she get
the same attention as some-
one showing promise as the
third baseman on the base-
ball team? If someone shows
outstanding talent in charcoal
sketching, I would doubt that
he or she is ever mentioned.
Did you ever hear a student
say "Wow! I'm going out for
physics next year!" or "Did
you see in the news that two
big universities are trying to
sign up this guy for outstand-
ing performance in chem-
istry?" I don't think so.
I dunno.
When you are old you can
do a lot of wondering.

The footprints of




God must surely be





in the Grand Canyon


Is there a God?
There surely must be, as he
left his footprint in the Grand
Canyon all 1,218,375 acres
of it.
It doesn't matter whether
you believe in God of not, the
palette of a master most
assuredly lies within these
canyon walls. One that would
make Leonardo Da Vinci or
Michelangelo green with en-
vy.
Sitting on the south rim of
the majestic Grand Canyon in
Northern Arizona, one can-
not help but feel something
while gazing across the vast-
ness of space filled with cra-
ters, peaks, crevices and the
brilliance of the canyon's col-
ors.
Dating back more than a
billion years, layers of multi-
colored stone, whether chis-
eled by God or Mother Na-


ture, the canyon is pure mag-
nificence. Shadows, sun,
clouds and even changes in
atmospheric pressure bring
about additional changes to
the canyon's range of colors.
Wait but a minute and you
will see a plethora of changes
to the hues and shades of the
canyon walls.
Grand Canyon has been a
national park since Feb. 2,
1919. It is visited by millions
each year. They come from all
over the world to hike its
many trails. Those who are
physically impaired find easy
accessibility to many vantage
points.
All have one thing in com-
mon they simply stare at
what lies before them.
Whether able to climb down
into the canyon or not, all are
able to view its depths, peaks,
plateaus and breadth.
Supporting the multitudes
that visit the canyon each
year is the primary purveyor
of sleeping and eating accom-
modations, Xantera, Inc. The
name "Xantera" is an Amer-
ican Indian name meaning
"places of beautiful earth."
Not inexpensive, but not
exorbitant either, Xantera is
exemplary in providing the
weary hiker/traveler food and
lodging. The El Tovar, built in
1905, tops the list for ele-
gance. Pricey, it caters to tray-


elers' every need. Other ac-
commodations are provided
by the Yavapai Lodge, The
Thunderbird and .the Bright
Angel Lodge. All are spacious,
fairly priced and nestled
serenely among the pifion
trees commonly found on the
south rim of the canyon.
Feel like hiking?
The Grand Canyon is one
of the world's great chal-
lenges. To travel to and from
the bottom of 'the Grand
Canyon on foot requires a
special permit, three days of
rigorous walking, sleeping on
the ground and lots of water,
as dehydration can be a very
serious problem. Failing to
heed helpful advice, more
than 250 people require pro-
fessional help in escaping the
rigors of the canyon each
year.
Or simply stand at the rim
and take in the canyon's
beauty. To all who think they
are masters of their domain, I
recommend a visit to this
wonderful place.
I promise you will stand in
awe as you gaze over the
splendor and magnificence of
it all. As one of the Seven
Wonders of the World, it is
truly something not to be
missed, whether you are in-
terested in geology, history, or
the sheer joy of seeing some-
thing beautiful.


Dread badge of courage: Hang gliding over Rio de Janeiro


BY JAMES TEMPLE
GUEST WRITER


I glimpsed the spotless sky
through the hotel window
and pictured the sun-kissed
bodies amassing on the white
sand beach outside, so natu-
rally I spent my last morning
in Rio de Janeiro pacing the
dull brown carpet in my
room.
At any moment a taxi
would arrive to drive me to
Pedra Bonita a 692-meter-
high mountain from which I
was planning to jump.
For the sake of journalistic
accuracy, I should mention
here that a hang glider would
be involved, but at the time it
seemed a fine distinction: I
was going to take a running
leap off a 2,270-foot cliff
strapped to, roughly, Sha-
quille O'Neal's childhood kite.
Hang gliding over Rio was
the less-than-luminous idea
of my traveling companion
Chris Kozup, a longtime but at
that point not necessarily,
long-term friend.
"We have to do it," he had
insisted excitedly over the.
phone a month before our
flight to Rio, about three
weeks and six days before I
would have cracked open a
guidebook to equip myself
with counterproposals.
Thousands of miles away,
walled in on three sides by my
office cubicle, the idea had
seemed abstract enough for
me to grudgingly acquiesce.
"It will be the experience of
a lifetime," Chris had prom-
ised by way of closing the
deal.
With the jump-off point
now a short drive away, expe-
riencing a lifetime seemed the
more compelling option. But
male pride, and no small
amount of peer pressure, pre-
vented me from reneging on
my decision.
Our other traveling cohort,
Richard Ryan, a British friend
who had arranged to meet us
in Rio, had made it clear he
was nearly as uneasy about


hang gliding as I was, which
made him even more insis-
tent on my participation.
I glanced at the bedside
clock as it blinked to 11:30
a.m. Seconds later, the room
phone rang.
As we stepped out of the
elevator into the lobby, the
cabby caught sight of us
through the glass entrance
and opened the car's rear
door.
I suddenly recalled the
warnings I had read about
certain taxi drivers in Rio
who, apparently unsatisfied
with tips earned by merely
carting tourists to and from
the city's landmarks, would
opt to abduct them for ran-
som instead.
Such a scenario would
confer an airtight out for the
afternoon's plans. I took a
moment to weigh the relative
risks, and entered the cab a
tad hopeful.
The door slammed and we
sped west toward the twin-
peaked granite cliff that punc-
tuates Rio's frowning crescent
of white southern beaches -
Arpoador, Ipanema, Leblon.
Clouds had blanketed the
southern edge of Rio for
much of our weeklong stay,
but today they were tucked
behind the hills. The beaches
were teeming with intimidat-
ingly fit men and women
wearing severely skimpy
swim wear.
Given my interest in the
customs of other countries, I

surveyed these scenes closely.
As the sand gave way to
stone cliffs we continued
along the winding ocean
road, past the upscale Sher-
aton Hotel as well as Rocinha,
one of Rio's largest favelas or
slums.
When we reached Pepino,
an isolated beach, something
caught my eye from above.
Dozens of hang gliders navi-
gating wide pirouettes filled
the sky, their colorful sails set
off against the dark gray back-
drop of the aptly, if unorigi-
nally, named Pedra Bonita
(Beautiful Rock). Lush green
trees ringed the lower half of
the mountain, until the pitch
shifted sharply. Clouds min-
gled with the gray walls at ,the
mountain's highest points, as
did hang gliders.
In truth, it was beautiful, as
far as rocks go.
But any awe Was quickly
squashed by a renewed fear
as it registered that the hang
gliders at Pedra Bonita hqv-
ered more than 2,000 feet
above rocks and trees, at least
10 times higher than I had
expected. I noted this/aloud.

2,000, the result's pretty much
the same," Chris said by way
of comforting me.
His attempt failed.
But as our cab pulled up
before the Rio Hang-Gliding
Association office, I noticed a
bumper sticker on the car
before us reading, "Carpe
Diem."
"Yes," I said to myself, hop-
ing desperately the sentiment
would take. "Seize the day.
Live life. Don't let fear dictate
your destiny!"
I straightened my spine as I
stepped out of the cab.
Our hang-gliding guide,
Ricardo Hamond, stepped
forward and introduced him-
self. I said hello in a gregari-
ous tone and shook his hand
firmly. As he led us into the
single-story building, I cross-
ed the doorsill in a confident
stride head high, shoulders
back.
The receptionist handed
me a sheet of paper absolving
the guide, association and
country of any responsibility
in the event of my death,
paralysis or dismemberment.
I slumped forward and
signed it.


When booking,the hang-
gliding trip over the phone,
Chris had asked, at my insis-
tence, whether hang gliding
was safe.
"We've done tours for 14
years and no problems," the
tour operator had replied.
.Now, as my legs fidgeted in


the back seat of Ricardo's two-
door black hatchback, 14
years sounded more like a
streak of luck that had gone
on perilously long.
Ricardo, however, was in
good spirits. As he drove us up

RIO from page 8B


a steep street enshrouded in
heavy forest, honking but not
decelerating as he took blind
curves, he informed us that
we had picked a great day for
hang gliding; a perfect com-
bination of sun and wind.
"We ask God for days like
this," he said, his hand riding
the horn as he shot a smile
toward the back seat.
"Yeah, I'll be praying to
God too," Richard replied.
"Who's first?" asked a dark-
haired man with a broken-
toothed smile when we
arrived at the launch spot, an
opening in the woods punc-
tuated by a green wooden
ramp that descended into the
sky. This was Paulo Celani,
founder of the "Just Fly"
hang-gliding tour. featured in
most Rio guidebooks.
Richard and Chris turned
around in sync and pointed
at me. I had told them days,
earlier that I wanted to be
first, lest I wait around and
lose my nerve. But I already
had.
Paulo, with whomJ would
be flying tandem, carefully
walked me through the in-
structions. After pulling a
potato-sack-like pouch over
my torso and squeezing on a
helmet, we practiced our
takeoff.
The only thing I had to do
was run and run hard -

tion for the fountain's opera-
tions and maintenance.
Community support
Jean Trammell, treasurer of
the board for MainStreet, said
anticipation of the fountain is
growing every day. Residents
of Park Place are anticipating
its arrival to the corner of
Tampa and Nassau.
"It's something for children
in the downtown area,"


down the ramp.
If I slowed down or stop-
ped, it seems, we would tum-
ble over the edge and, well,
test the dubious utility of
those helmets.
"The fear should make you
run," Paulo said. "The only
danger is not running."
We stepped onto the plat-
form.
"Look up on the horizon,"
he said. "Don't look down."
My eyelids were already
squeezed shut. My heart was
whomping against my ribs.
Someone had filled my hel-
met with salt water.
"Carpe diem," I whispered.
Paulo said something in
Portuguese.
"Uh, be sure to say 'go' in
English," I squeaked.
My 13-year-old voice had
dropped in unexpectedly.
Paulo smiled easily. Tighten-
ed a strap. Loosened another.
Glanced at the windsock.
"Ready, set, go!"
The fear did make me run.
I pumped with everything I
had.
My legs swung out from
under me. A wall of wet wind
collided against my face.
Pressed the skin tight. Whist-
led past my ears.
I opened my eyes.
Fear was instantly replaced
by exhilaration.
Strapped to that hang glid-


Trammell said. "People don't
even see the playground by
the tennis courts. People are
looking forward to it."
Kathy Linder, a past direc-
tor of Venice MainStreet, is as
much a part of the fountain's
existence as anybody. She just
went out of her way and got
grants and everything to do it.
Drake said while working at
the Paper Pad store on Venice
Avenue, she would hear peo-


er, lying horizontal and look-
ing down, I felt like I was fly-
ing. I'll admit it an image
from "Superman" flashed in
my head. There was no metal
cockpit, no balloon and bas-
ket, nothing between me and
the world below.
Except the wind.
My idyllic moment ended
as the wind dropped out
momentarily and we ... well,
fell. I couldn't gauge the pre-
cise extent of our plunge, but
I think I can safely say it
spanned at least four or five
miles.
Once we stabilized, which
is to say two seconds later,
Paulo assured me laughingly,
"It's common, no big deal."
But my fantasy was over. I
was on my guard again, only
too aware that we were float-
ing thousands of feet above
the ground, with nothing be-
tween me and the world be-
low.
We wound around in a
wide arc. To the right were the
beaches and the ocean be-
yond, the water clear enough
that I could see patterns on its
floor. The famous Cristo Re-
dentor (Christ the Redeemer)
statue that towers over Rio
was in front of us, miles away
but not perceptibly higher.
I expected hang gliding to
feel like a gradual fall, the sail
merely offering resistance like


ple come into the store all the
time with their children,
grandfathers and husband.
"Here's mom and grandma
shopping and the rest are
dragging along saying I want
to sit on a bench out front and
the kids are saying 'I'm bored.'
So, I thought it would be great
to have this fountain. I think
that's one thing that encour-
aged MainStreet so much. If
you've worked in the stores,


a parachute. But we contin-
ued to wind around at the
same level and I noticed
many hang gliders were levi-
tating well above the ramp.
I would later learn that
gliders are pushed upward
through "ridge lift," which
occurs when wind hits a bar-
rier say Pedra Bonita -
and is deflected upward.
Paulo asked if I wanted to
try a maneuver, something he
called a "loop-da-loop," and
before I knew it he was dip-
ping the wings until the wind
no longer caught, which
meant we were tumbling
toward the earth out of con-
trol at increasing speed. I
squeezed his shoulder and
emitted a squeal though a
most masculine one, I can
assure you.
"I can tell you are very sen-
sitive," Paulo said.
After that, we continued to
soar in wide circles, from
above the ocean to above the
trees and edging lower with
each pass. Turning parallel to
Pepino Beach, Paulo unhook-
ed my legs and provided
landing instructions.
"Don't run until you feel
your feet hit the ground," he
said.
But as we descended we
did not decelerate we sped
up. I gaped at Paulo, wonder-
ing if he realized that there


you've seen the gentlemen
sitting outside on the bench-
es all the time."
More trees around the
fountain will provide some
shade and an escape from the
heat. It will also be another
spot for people use as a meet-
ing place while wandering
about town.
Delta Fountains, a compa-
ny from Jacksonville that
builds children's fountains all


was no way I could run that
fast.
But as we neared the
ground, I dutifully engaged
my feet. I felt my boots scrape
the sand twice when, sudden-
ly, Paulo steered us straight
up. We sailed back into the
sky climbing 10, 15, 20 feet
- until we exhausted our
momentum and drifted back
to the ground.
After Chris and Richard
had landed from their flights,
the three of us sat at an
umbrella-shaded table on the
cement-and-stone path bor-
dering the beach. Over sodas
from a stand, we each re-
hashed our experience.
Chris proudly proclaimed
that he couldn't get enough of
the loop-da-loops. He also
only-too-eagerly shared that
Paulo had told him that his
friend me had been very
scared during the maneuver.
But Richard's pride suf-
fered as well, I was pleased to
learn. He had been admon-
ished by Ricardo when his
grip had become too tight on
the guide's shoulder.
"Gentle, gentle," Richard
said he had been told.
I was even more gratified
to learn, a few evenings and
beers later, that on landing,
Richard had run to the near-
est trash can to throw up. He
attributed it to a hangover


over the state of Florida, was
enlisted to help plan the
fountain. Since this is not a
city project, local contractors
have jumped in to help build
the fountain. Projects from
the company can be found
throughout the Southeast,
Texas and Ohio.
Bill Hagar, general con-
tractor for Charles Hagar
Construction, drew the per-
mits for the'fountain and is


from the night before.
After taking apart the hang
gliders and strapping them to
the car, Paulo sat down and
waited with us for our cab.
Looking up at the sky full
of hang gliders, he mentioned
with a trace of envy that some
were taking advantage of the
day's ideal conditions to wind
up as high as possible to
make their way to and around
the Christ statue.
"Have you ever done it?"
Chris asked.
"I had a chance once,"
Paulo said, "but I only have a
tandem glider and the client
on that day didn't want to go."
"He was maybe like you,"
he added, nodding toward
me with a wry smile.
I laughed along, uncon-
cerned. Bravery, I thought,
isn't not being afraid, but do-
ing something in spite of be-
ing afraid. I had pulled it off,
had conquered my fears and
was feeling quite courageous.
Even a bit, dare I say, macho.
Of course, when the taxi
arrived, those kidnapping
stories started running
through my mind again.

building the pump house,
which will resemble the
restroom building. There will
also be a fence decorated
with fish to hide electric
boxes.
"There's a large group of
people who've been involved
with this for years," Hagar
said. "The fountain will be a
great plus for the city and the
city has been very supportive.
It's been really enjoyable."


MILLER from page6B


Counsels patients and
family members when they
are faced with difficult medi-
al decisions or. need emo-
tional support.
Treating pain
As strange as this may
sound, most medical schools
do not adequately train doc-
tors in pain management. In
fact, studies suggest that
untreated pain is common. A
study of 9,000 hospitalized,,
severely ill adults found that


half of the conscious patients
who died in the hospital
experienced moderate to
severe pain during their last
72 hours of life. Palliative care
programs specialize in treat-
ing the pain and suffering
without leaving patients in
doped stupors or addicted to
pain killers.
Palliative care programs
Palliative care is more
than just a pain management
program. It encompasses all


aspects of a patient's physi-
cal, psychological, social and
spiritual needs.
Palliative care is typically
provided by a team that
includes physicians, nurses,
social workers, massage ther-
apists and clergy, and works
closely with a patient's pri-
mary doctor to ensure a
complete, well-coordinated
treatment.
More and more hospitals
are starting palliative care
programs around the coun-


try. Five years ago there were
just a handful of palliative
care programs in existence,
but today, there are nearly
1,000 hospitals nationwide
that offer palliative care ser-
vices. To find a palliative care
program in your area, see the
Center to Advance Palliative
Care directory at capc.org.
Medicare coverage
Depending on the services
and circumstances, palliative
care may or may not be cov-


ered by Medicare.
You'll need to talk to your
doctor and check with your
local Medicare carrier. Many
private insurance plans do
cover palliative care.

Brian Trotier oI Kelly Capital in San Diego, the parent
company of the developer, says, "We are absolutely
thrilled that our project is doing so well and owe many
thanks to our architect, Dan lonescu, and our contrac-
tor, Kellogg & Kimsey, both from Sarasota.
"This is a strong market and a great location and we
are committed to building a project that enhances the
unique, laid-back beachfront lifestyle that exists on the
key".
Due in large part to the success of Sunrise Pointe, the
developer is actively searching for new sites in Char-
lotte County and several other coastal areas through-
out Florida.
Before even starting construction, the developer of
Sunrise Pointe worked closely with the Hermitage
Artists Retreat, the Friends of the Parks of Sarasota
County, the Englewood Environmental Learning Cen-
ter, and Charlotte and Sarasota counties to preserve,
move, and re-use
the "roundhous-
es" located on the

on the beach .

.,. at Sunrise Pointe

on Manasota Key

From page 3
structures, the developer of Sunrise Pointe also
donated $40,000 to help defray the cost of moving
the roundhouses to the Environmental Learning
Center site on Old Englewood Road.
The developer commented that, "It is very
important to us to become actively involved in the
local community and to be good neighbors."
Sales have been brisk at Sunrise Pointe and in a
market this strong, a project with only 24 units will
soon be sold-out, especially as condo buyers dis-
^ cover both Sunrise Pointe and Manasota Key.
'B As one couple from the Naples area remarked,
"It's getting too crowded to enjoy living in Naples
anymore. We are looking for a quiet place where we
can still walk to the beach every morning. This pro-
ject offers great relative value and a lifestyle we are
looking for."
As Manasota Key's story spreads, many Realtors
expect an influx not only of buyers from Naples,
Fort Myers, and Sarasota, but also from the Miami
Beach area and even from Europe. Europeans have
vacationed regularly in Southwest Florida and the
current strength of the Euro makes owning a sec-
ond or vacation home in Florida very attractive as
both an investment and a currency hedge.
Both existing and prospective buyers of condo-
miniums at Sunrise Pointe can view photos show-
ing the progress of construction on Sunrise Pointe's
Web site at www.sunrisepointecondos.com.
The developer is also looking into placing a web-
cam on the project site making it possible to check
real time progress of construction, much like ski
resorts use web cams to show current weather con-
Se editions.
The Web site also provides links to various attrac-
tions on Manasota Key and in and around the
greater Englewood area.
For more details on Sunrise Pointe, including
prices and floor plans, please contact David Lipstein
at Manasota Key Realty (941-474-9534 or
