ASSISTANT EDITOR ,

Speakwith almost any per-

housing or public transporta-

turns toward high-density
developments at 25 living
units per acre or more.

Yet, in Venice where the
public shouts out for afford-
able housing and maintain-
ing public bus routes, those
same people also rail against
high-density developments.
Current city ordinances do
not allow density to exceed 18
units per acre. Venice Plan-
ning and Zoning Director
Tom Slaughter sees a need to
create a high-density zoning
district that would allow up to
25 units per acre.
Slaughter sees this as being
a special planned-use district'
in which concept plans must
be approved that address a

land values awe skyrocketing

The median housing price
in Sarasota County has more

years, while employee sal-

Over the next year. Slaugh-

DENSITY ATA GLANCE
Venice hasn't allowed a development to exceed 18 units per acre
in nearly 30 years. City officials drastically changed the zoning
laws in 1978, eliminating that option.
Here are some of the high-density developments approved before
the change:
* Bahia Vista, 1555 Tarpon Center Drive, 150 units
* Bella Costa, 240 and 270 Santa Maria St., 130 units
* Costa Brava, 244 St. Augustine Ave., 126 units
* Valencia On The Gulf, 627, 629, 631 Alhambra, 125 units

Missing road money


returned to city

County commissioners will vote Tuesday to
return another $618,000 of misallocated Venice
road impact fee funds, opening the door to finally
fixing the Knights Trail-Laurel Road intersection.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

More than four months
ago, city staff pointed out a
slight miscalculation by Sara-
sota County in how much
road impact fee money was
owed to Venice.'
The total came in at
around $2.5 million, and
Sarasota County Board of
County Commissioners will
voteTuesday to return the last
of that money.
This comes as good news
to City Manager Many Black.

Venice's available funds for
county road improvements
within city" limits is now at
$3.7 million, which means,
there is finally enough money
to install a traffic signal and
turn lanes at the Knights Trail-
Laurel Road intersection.

Mosquito Management director predicts more mosquito activity


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


So far, so good, with the
Mosquito thing this year.
"Yeah, even with all the
rain, we've been watching for
big outbreaks but haven't had
huge problems." Sarasota
County Mosquito Manage-
ment Director Dr. Lyman
Roberts said. "But I expect to
see more mosquito activity
maybe by next week."
The seven-day National
Weather Service forecast for
next week calls for rain every.
day and night.
Rains wake up squadrons
of the pesky blood suckers,
which means they start;
breeding. Adult mosquitoes
live about two weeks. After
hatching, the males start
looking for female mosqui-
toes. They copulate with as
many as they can find, then
the males die. They are gener-
ally dead in a week. :
Roberts said there was
some slight viral (West Nile)

The 70-year-old man also

The Missouri Department
of Health and Senior Services

Since 1999, whenWest Nile
was first identified in the
United States, the virus has
caused nearly 17,000 cases of
human illness, including
more than 650 deaths.
While Sarasota County res-
idents have skated regarding
West Nile, Roberts warned
against complacency.

Veterans join forces to help VA Hospital in Tampa


BY JOAN DOUGLASS
GUEST WRITER
On Sunday, May 29, all of
the veterans organizations in
Venice joined together, to
make a trip to the Haley
VA Hospital in Tampa. We
brought more than 300 vet-
erans ditty bags full of per-
sonal items, lap robes, knitted
slippers, canteen coupons,
home-baked goodies and
fruit.
We iad a Bingo game
there and everybody won.
We had great prizes, like
radios and card games plus
a, portable TV and lots of
canteen coupons the vets
could redeem in the hospital
canteen. Everyone enjoyed


the game.
We stopped in every
room to say hello, thank the
veterans for their service to
our country and give them a
small American flag in honor
of Memorial Day.
We saw many veterans
from our area and some just
back from Iraq.
The veterans could not
thank us enough, and we all
had a very rewarding, heart-
filled day.
We want to thank all who
went and those who donated
items for the ditty bags,
baked goods and fruit.
We plan on doing this
again next year. We hope we
will have more volunteers
come along.

Taking planning



back to 'Square One'


A county panel has come up with
recommendations for making the planning
process more open to citizen participation.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A pilot program designed
Io" remove the adversarial
liature of the initial steps in
submitting development pro-
fosals has been authorized
ty the Sarasota County Board
f Commissioners.
. The first step in the process,
historically, has been a neigh-
0orhood workshop scheduled
hOrtly before a proposal to
rezone or develop a property
k filed with the county. But
tor the past 12 months, a
Soup of eight-citizens has
Peen meeting, trying to im-
rove the procedure. They
ve included land planners,
attorneys, developers, county
staff members and directors
of the Sarasota Council of
Neighborhood Associations.
"We agreed that a proce-
;dure was needed to allow for
,broader citizen engagement
'and participation as develop-
ment proposals are formulat-
ed," said William.Zoller, a past
president and current director
;ofCONA.
I None of the eight involved
in the informal discussions
found the neighborhood


workshops satisfactory, he
said.
"Early on,I it's important for
the petitioner to tell prospec-
tive neighbors, 'This is what
we're thinking of doing. Have
you any objections?' That
should lead to a back-and-
forth conversation involving
everyone," Zoller added.
The group felt that a sec-
ond workshop should then
be scheduled. It should reveal
a conceptual plan that the
developer and the neighbors
can work through to reach an
accommodation.
Moderated
To avoid conflicts and
contrary interpretations, the
group has proposed appoint-
ing an independent modera-
tor to guide the meetings. That
person would be. selected.
from a list of nominees they
would put together. Minutes
would be recorded by an inde-
pendent scribe.
The moderator would be
trained by the county's twice-
a-yeatr Neighborhood Inia-
tives Academy. It offers a free
10-week course on how to
work effectively with county
government.


CROWN CONSIDERATION
A crown is often suggested as a restoration when a tooth is severely
destroyed by dental decay, a fracture, or has had root canal therapy.
Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal.
Plastics or stainless steel are also used in special situations. Gold is
an excellent restorative material and is used where esthetics is not a
strong consideration. as in the back teeth. To obtain a beautiful and
natural look, the choice is either porcelain or porcelain fused to metal.
The latter is strong and attractive, and will give the very best results. It
does not reflect light as well, however, therefore giving a more opaque
appearance. Because of it translucence, porcelain can be the most
natural and beautiful. It cannot always be used, however, because of
thickness requirements.
The results achieved by this beautiful and functional restoration,
depend on the condition your mouth presents, the materials used in
fabricating the crown, and the skill of your dentist.




c Dr. Charles Dr. Brent Dr. Caryn

Minutes of meetings would
be mailed to all who attend-
ed. A county staff. member
would be assigned to each
session to answer questions,
and to make certain that
meeting content is accurate.
Once the pilot program is
completed, the results will be
evaluated by the county
Planning and Development
Services Center and the eight-
person group. The latter calls
itself "Square One."
"We agreed that a success-
ful process has to start from
'square one.' So we gave our-
selves that name," Zoller said.
Recommendations for next
steps will be provided by the
county planning commission
and the board of commission-
ers.
The Square One group
includes Giovanna Deveny, a
member of the South Venice
2010 committee and a CONA
director; Al Maio, a former
chairman of the county plan-
ning commission; Tom Min-
nich, a land use activist and
a, CONA director; Jim Paul-
mann, a former county plan-
ner; Henry Rodriguez, a devel-
oper and a CONA director;
Steve Suau, a specialist in
stormwater systems with the
county; Dana West, president
of DRI Biological Resources
Inc.; and Zoller, who is an
architect.


CITY NOTES


Pinebrook Road extension
delay
Delays into finishing the
extension of Pinebrook Road
between East Venice Avenue
and Center Road are being
blamed on traffic light prob-
lems, according to an update
from Sarasota County.
Work stopped while private
engineers with Pelican Pointe
residential development and
Sarasota County worked out
design issues and how to treat
the south side of the intersec-
tion of Center and Pinebrook
roads, which consists of two
residential driveways.
By April 27, the problem
was resolved, but now the
contractor must wait for the
hardware to be manufactured
and delivered. Mast arm con-
struction and delivery can
take up to 10 weeks, according
to Isaac Brownman of Sara-
sota, County Planning and
Development Services.
No date for completion has
been offered. The project was
supposed to be done in early
spring. .
This extension of Pine-
brook Road originally wasn't
slated to happen until 2009.
Pelican Pointe decided to pay
and complete the job itself in
order to cover road impact
fees owed to the county.
Fireworks display

The city, of Venice will cele-
brate Independence Day with
a fireworks display Monday,
July 4 at, or shortly after, sun-
set around 9 p.m. The fire-

Clarification


According to county offi-
cials, delays in the approval
of plans for improvements to
the U.S. 41 and Old Venice
Road/Blackburn Point Road
intersection in Osprey are not
the result of the county's fail-
ure to file them on time with
the Florida Department of
Transportation,, as reported


in a June 10 story in the
Gondolier Sun.
County spokeswoman
Susan Walsh told the paper
that FDOT has acknowl-
edged it misplaced the
plans, which led to confu-
sion about whether they had
been delivered in the first
place.

MOSQUITO frompageA
encephalitis. Following con-
firmation that the local man
had the virus, the state issued
a health advisory encourag-
ing county residents to limit
their exposure to mosquitoes. '
The last major outbreak of
SLE was in 1990, when 13
people died and 223 were
infected across the country.
The same year there were
eight cases of the virus in
Sarasota County.
Last year, 2,535 human
cases and 98 deaths were re-


ported to CDC, with Western
states hit the hardest. The
worst year for West Nile virus
since its appearance six years
ago was 2003, with 9,862 re-
ported cases and 264 deaths.
Over the past six years,
WNV has been confirmed in
every state except Alaska and
Hawaii, according to the
CDC.
Most people infected with
West Nile develop no symp-
toms. Some get mild illnesses
one to two weeks after expo-
sure. Symptoms include
fever, headache, body aches,


skin rash and swollen lymph
nodes.
Less than 1 percent of
those infected become seri-
ously ill with illnesses that
include encephalitis (inflam-
mation of the brain), which
can prove fatal.
Little, brown and
hard to pronounce
Mosquitoes are attracted
to carbon dioxide, which is
emitted by skin. They also are
attracted to sweat, perfumes,
talcs, deodorants, aftershave
and anything else flower-bas-


ed or made from animal com-
pounds.
Male mosquitoes mostly
eat nectar from flowers or
other natural plants. It is the
female mosquitoes that bite
because they need the blood
for protein to lay eggs.
You would think with all
the havoc wreaked, the mos-
quito that causes West Nile
would be a foot long, have a
wing span of 3 feet and weigh
at least 25 pounds.
"He's a little brown, nonde-
script thing," Roberts said.
"Culex Nigripalpus."


CONTROLLING MOSQUITOES
Here are some things you can do to reduce the mosquito popula-
tion where you live:
* Empty water-filled containers like wading pools, pool covers,
plant saucers and anything else that holds water.
* Cover rain barrels with screening.
* Change pet water dishes and birdbaths at least twice a week.
* Keep gutters clear of debris.
* Stock man-made ponds with mosquito fish (provided free of
charge by Sarasota County Mosquito Management.)
* Keep grass mowed, eliminate standing water in the yard.
* Discard or cover tires, drill holes for drainage of tire swings.
* Check plants, especially bromeliads, with large leaves that may
collect water. Eliminate the plant, keep it inside or flush it out to
empty the stagnant water at least once a week.


MONEY from page 1 A


ments. The city collects this
money for Sarasota County,
and then it was supposed to
go toward improving county
roads within city limits.
This wasn't happening be-
cause of clerical errors, ac-
cording to the county, that
date back to the mid-1990s.
So far, county officials are
saying Venice appears to be
the only road impact fee dis-
trict disputing how much
money it should be receiving.


The misplacement is being
blamed on clerical errors be-
cause of annexations. Money
collected on impact fees is
being labeled as county dol-
lars instead of city.
There are seven "districts"
where road impact fees are
collected and spent. This
includes the four municipali-
ties of Longboat Key, North
Port, Sarasota andVenice plus
unincorporated areas labeled
as north, central and south.,


At least $2 million was
identified by city staff late last
year as going toward county
intersection improvements at
Jacaranda Boulevard and East
Venice Avenue, even though it
was outside of city limits. City
council approval is needed
for impact fees to be spent
outside of its boundaries.
Knights Trail-Laurel
Council members have
asked for all of their road im-


pact fees to go to the intersec-
tion of Knights Trail and
Laurel Road. County officials
speculate turn lanes, widen-
ing and a traffic signal at the
intersection will cost $4.5 mil-
,lion. Even with funding in
place, the county estimates at
least a year's worth of design
work in needed before any
improvements move forward.
Both county and city offi-
cials have heard rumblings out
of PGT Industries about the


congested intersection's lack of
lights and turn lanes. There are
rumors the manufacturer and
other employers in the indus-
trial park would like to expand,
but cannot because of the con-
gested Knights Trail-Laurel in-
tersection.
The need for the traffic
light has grown as residential
and retail developments con-
tinue to sprout up along
Laurel Road. Waterford Com-
panies plans a 20-screen


movie theater, retail center
and 500 townhomes at the
intersection, while Ruben-
Hollands Developers has 13
acres planned for retail.
Venice now has $3.7 mil-
lion to contribute. Black says
the rest of the money should
come from the county.
"The county's got to put
money in .because of the
landfill's impact, so it's all
there," he said. "We just need
to start."


DENSITY from page lA


isn't coming from the city
manager's office and has little
chance of becoming a reality,
no matter how well-inten-
tioned it may be.
City Manager Marty Black
has not asked his planning
department to develop a
high-density zoning district,
and sees it as a difficult policy
to pass even if he had.
Once a project exceeds 18
units per acre, quality-of-life
issues come into play. Black,
the former head of planning
in Venice, has concerns about
people being packed in too
tightly and the affect that
would have on neighboring
properties.,
"That would be a very diffi-
cult policy change to move
forward," Black said. "We're
not even seeing the private
sector push forward for those
types of (density) demands.
... I don't see the demand to
change the rules yet.
"I, frankly, don't see Venice
becoming a very intensively
developed area. That's con-
trary to what we're hearing
from the city council perspec-
tive and the community."
How dense is 18-plus?
Venice hasn't allowed a de-
velopment to exceed 18 units
per acre in nearly 30 years.
City officials drastically chang-
ed zoning laws in 1978, elimi-
nating that option.
One development, that's
often criticized for its per-
ceived density the Water-
front towers on the island -
actually is one of the less
dense. The nine-story condo-
minium towers are only 5.3
units per acre, despite being
105-feet tall.
For high-density Venice
development, you'd have to
go back to the early 1970s
when large-scale, tall, beach-
front condominiums popped
up along The Esplanade, Tar-
pon Center Drive and: Al-
hambra Road.
And when people look at
these locations today, the last
thing that pops into their
mind is affordable or work-
force housing.
Multi-story developments
like Venice Sands at 75
units, Bahia Vista at 150 units
and San Marco at 78 units -
all squeezed in as many units
as possible, with prices out of
most people's grasp.
Calculating density from
those numbers is difficult,
however, as ,each unit has an
individual land owner and
none of the site plans on file
from more than 30 years ago
lists total acreage.
In 2002, a city report did
identify the density for neigh-
boring properties to Fisher-
man's Wharf and found four
properties in which current
density is more than double
what is currently allowed.
Condominium develop-
ment Costa Brava on St. Au-
gustine is among the most
: dense developments in the
city at 35.4 units per acre, and
Bella Costa on Santa Maria
comes in at 28.5 units per
acre.
Neither building should be


more than 18 units per acre,
but both were built before the
zoning code change.
The report also took a look
at a pair of mobile home
communities, Harbor Lights
and Venice Bay Adult Park.
Current zoning would limit
locations to five units per
acre, but Harbor Lights is
actually at 11.5 units per acre
andVenice Bay at 9.6 units.


High 20s
Look toward downtown
Sarasota city to view truly
dense housing, according to
the Venice city manager,
where developments can be
up to 50 units per acre in
Sarasota.
Sarasota County caps den-
sity at 25 units per acre.
Black believes that is why
Venice anti-growth advocates
continually point toward


Sarasota when describing
what they do not want hap-
pening in Venice.
"It's not theoretical; they
allow it," Black said. "It's con-
sistently coming in at the high
20s and more per acre."
Technically, a developer
can exceed the 18 units-per-
acre mark in Venice, too.
The city's land use plans
are structured, however, to
make it more work than it's


worth.
There could be exceptions
down the road. Venice Hous-
ing Authority is conducting
an audit right now and is
working to obtain grants and
financial backing to rebuild
and expand at its current
location just off the island
along Venice Avenue.
VHA Executive Director
Peter Lopez said in a previous
interview he would need


more than just three stories in
height and 18 units per acre
in order to make a blending of
affordable and workforce
housing successful.
"That is one we would
consider (to exceed 18 units
per acre)," Black said.

Fuss over growth


management ended

Commissioners and administrators fumed when
lawmakers tinkered with impact fees, but a last-
minute amendment on transportation concur-
rency may be the only significant change.


\BY JACK GURNEY
\ PELICAN PRESS

All the fuss and fury Sara-
sota County officials have
expressed over a proposed
Growth Management Act
overhaul by the Florida Leg-
islature appears to have
cooled now that the session
has ended without significant
changes to the way impact
fees on new development are
imposed.
"I'll be going through all
136 pages of the final version
that was approved," said
Anne McClung, the county's
planning director, "but other
than having to add a defini-
tion for what is financially
feasible, I don't see much we
aren't already doing."
On May 6, the document
passed shortly before mid-
night was heralded by some
lawmakers as the most
sweeping change in the state's
planning process since the
act was adopted in 1985. But
many of the new rules for
developers have been county
policies for years.
What prompted the law-
makers to finally make all
developers pay for :such
things as new roads, schools,
water resources and sewage
treatment was a projected $35
billion statewide shortage of
infrastructure to provide for
the 300,000 transplanted resi-
dents who arrive every year.
To that end, they pledged
$1.5 billion of unanticipated


windfall revenue over the
next two years for catch-up
projects, but placed the bal-
ance of the burden on those
developers who had previ-
ously been given a free ride
when they submitted site
plans and pulled construc-
tion permits.
Nothing new
A last-minute exception
may have been slipped
through as an amendment to
Senate Bill 360, which con-
tains the Growth Manage-
ment Act changes. Sarasota
County officials are attempt-
ing to determine whether it
could actually allow a lower
level of service on some
roads.
Because the amendment
language does not take effect
until December 2006, it could
be removed or changed dur-
ing next spring's legislative
session. Meanwhile, county
planners and transportation
experts are going through
other growth management
changes with a fine-toothed
comb.
"Some cities and counties
will be required to engage in
water supply planning and
take a much longer look at
community planning," Mc-
Clung said, "but a lot of things
in this document such as
visioning, economic develop-
ment and open spaces we
are already doing."
The county commission
previously anguished over

All had ball

at the 'Hall'

The gathering may have
been smaller than the others,
but the atmosphere was
warm and cozy at the Venice
Sports Hall of Fame's third
annual induction ceremony
.and banquet held this past
Thursday at Bogey's Sports
Pub.
Venice welcomed three, of
its beloved into the "Hall" -
Sheryl Maize, Ralph Adrian
Sr. and the late Milt Maas.
Each are most deserving
and had compelling tales.
. Adding to the festivities
was an appearance by Mark
(Guthrie.
Guthrie was part of the
inaugural Hall of Fame Class
of 2003, but he couldn't at-
tend because he was then
pitching with the Chicago
Cubs.
Now retired, Guthrie was
able to attend with wife
Andrea.
Guthrie took the podium
and talked about how much
he enjoyed growing up in
Venice. He reminisced about
experiences and acquain-
tances. His speech was from
the heart and well received.
The big winner of the night
was the Rotary Futures Pro-
gram at Venice High. All
proceeds from the banquet
go toward the worthwhile
cause.
The owners of Bogey's and
,the Crow's Nest Mark
Costanzo and Steve Hamer -
'are to be commended. They
donate all the food and bever-
ages at the banquet to the
Rotary Futures.
Rotary Futures specializes
in assisting students apd their
parents on making career
decisions. It also helps with
scholarships, college applica-
tions, testing and service
hours.
With the third induction
ceremony history, we can
look at the plaques of the 15
people now in the "Hall" at
the frbnt entrance of Bogey's.
We pay our respects and look
ahead. Who will be in the
"Hall's" Class of 2006?
We all know of deserving
folks. We all have time to
think. Look for nomination
ballots in the Gondolier Sun
after the first of the NewnYear.

The owners and staff at Big Bite Tackle Outfitters in Nokomis
include Dan de la Presilla, wife Stacy and son D.J. The new
shop is open 13 hours a day seven days a week.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


While growing up, Dan de
la Presilla never understood
why bait and tackle shops
kept the same hours as the
working man.
He remembers rushing
home from work, changing
his clothes and heading out
to fish. Finding a bait shop
that was open was a bigger
challenge than finding fish.
de la Presilla recalls those
predicaments. Now that he'
has his own bait and tackle
shop, he can do something


about it.
The new Big Bite Tackle
Outfitters store located at 900
South Tamiami Trail (comer
of U.S. 41 and Colonia Lane)
is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
seven days a week.
S"We're friendly to the
working man," de la Presilla
said. "There's nothing worse
than getting off work and
not being able to find a bait
store that's open."
In fact, de la Presilla's
motto is to be friendly to
everyone.
"Coming into my shop is
like chatting with one, of:


while she was here," Tanaka
said. "They'll be hard foot-
steps to follow. I'm excited
about working with Debbie
and the kids. Swimming
gave a lot to me. Now I can
give back."
Tanaka was one of the
top breaststrokers in the
state when she swam at
VHS in the late '80s. She
placed third in the state
when she was a senior.
Tanaka graduated from VHS
in 1990.


Tanaka earned a full schol-

Tanaka was a seven-time
New England champion in

"I got faster 'in college,"
she said. "I didn't burn out.
High school should be a bal-
ance between fun and
work."
Tanaka, who prior to
teaching was director of the


Rotary Futures Program at
VHS, is already working with
the kids Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday mornings at
the newly refurbished VHS
pool.
The energetic Tanaka is
already gearing up for the fall
season.
There will be a student/
parent informational meet-
ing at the pool at 5 p.m. on
Wednesday, Aug. 10. Tryouts

Sandburg, Lindsey to head up girls golf


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Keith Kralis had a good
four-year run trying to get the
Venice High girls golf pro-
gram back on top.
But with greener pastures
calling this spring, or in other
words a position at the David
Leadbetter Academy in Bra-
denton, the Lady Indians
were left without a mentor.
The void didn't last very
long, as Larry Sandburg and
Shari Lindsey will act as co-
coaches for the 2005 season.
Sandburg is the Venice


High athletics director. He
was previously head baseball
coach with close to 400 victo-
ries and he more recently
acted as an assistant football
coach at 1 Indian Ave.
Lindsey has been at
Mission Valley Country Club
since 1993. She went through
a demanding grind to get
LPGA accreditation. She is a
Class A teaching pro.
Kralis had also been a
teaching pro at Mission
Valley, which is the home
course for Lady Indian golf.
Golf is a fall sport in
Florida.


Sandburg said his first task
is to get more girls interested
in the program. He urges any
girl who will be attending
V-HS who wants to take up
the sport and learn from
Lindsey's expertise to call
him at 735-1536.
"We need to get more
girls on the course," Sand-
burg said. "We'll start meeting
in a couple of weeks."
Venice has a good base
with girls like Megan Clipse,
Lindsay Hinshaw and fresh-
man phenom Crystal Smith.
Many more are needed to
make up a competitive team.


Dan de la Presilla spools line for a customer at the new tackle and bait shop located on U.S. 41
in Nokomis. I


your fishing buddies," he
said. "I want to guide people
to where the fish are, let them
know what the hot baits and
lures are."
de la Presilla's wife, Stacy, a
1990 Venice High grad, has
spent countless days fishing
with her husband.
"He's spent a lot of time
in tackle shops, fishing and
reading about fishing," she
said. "He was in a tackle
shop he really liked in Port
St. Joes. It was then he real-
ized that. he wanted to open
up his own shop."
The spacious Big, Bite


Shop, which has only been
open for a 'few weeks, is still
taking shape, but there is
already plenty to-offer.
Live bait-wise, there's
shrimp and pinfish right
now. Big Bite carries frozen
and chum for all types of
fishing.
Popular lure makes in-
clude Mirrolure, Yo-zuri,
DOA, Exude, Gulp and Tsu-
nami.
Big Bite Tackle is also fully
stacked with quality rods
and reels. Rod makes include
Crowder, Penn, Shimano and
Shakespear. Popular reels


available are Okuma, Penn,
Quantam, Shimano and Tica.
All of the other accessories
can also be picked up. We're
talking bait buckets, aerators,
cast nets, line, hooks, swivels,
sinkers, sunglasses, hats, etc.
de la Presilla said he has
plenty of parking and that
folks with boats in tow have
plenty of room to pull up and
use the back entrance.
There is also a 10 percent
discount for all firemen and
police officers.
Big Bite Tackle Outfitters is
located in the old Nokomis
Hardware building.. ,

Urban Legends, true or false?


What is' the origin of the
word golf? Why does a golf
course have 18 holes? Was a
golfer poisoned by chewing
on his tee? Was a golfer actu-
ally eaten by a crocodile in
Palm Beach, Fla.? What did
Arnold Palmer's wife tell
Johnny Carson she did for
Arnie to give him luck?
Well I hate to tell you this,
but most of it is 100 percent
pure crapola. Let's take a look
at our first "Urban Legend."
What is the origin of the
word golf? Well, I can tell
you for sure that the old
"Gentleman Only, Ladies For-
bidden" is completely un-
true. For one thing, acro-
nyms have only existed for
the last 100 years. The
Scottish word gowf, a verb
which means to strike or cuff,
is most likely the true story
here. One down.
Why does a golf course
have 18 holes, instead of 10 or
20? The urban legend tells us
that a bottle of Scotch con-
tained 18 shots, thus the 18
holes. Rubbish. Early golf
courses varied greatly and
there was no standard. Some
courses had as few as five or
as many as 24 holes. St.
Andrews originally had 11
holes, but in 1764, two' were
considered too short and
were consolidated into exist-
ing holes, thus there were


Michael Lamond
THE ZONE

nine out and nine in, totaling
18. Of course St. Andrews,
being the birthplace of golf,
set the standard.
Who hasn't heard the story
about the golfer who was
eaten on the golf course by
a crocodile? The story goes
that the first foursome out
that day had a golfer in a big
hurry. So after several holes
he went ahead alone. But he
never made it to the club-
house. He was eaten by an
old crocodile, not an alligat-
or, when he. approached a
water hazard to retrieve an
errant, ball. Nice story, but
not true. There were no
records of any missing golf-
ers in Palm Beach and the'
police and newspapers never


reported such a story. Oh,
there was a picture you say?
That photo was of a saltwater
crocodile taken in Borneo.
Nuff said.
What did Arnold Palmer's
wife tell Johnny Carson she
did to give him luck before a
tournament? Well, first off,
Arnie's wife never appeared
on the "Tonight Show." This
is a great tale but completely
untrue. If you want to hear
the gist of it, see me on the'
golf course.
Lastly, did a golfer actually
die from chewing on his tee?
We have a winner here folks.
True story from 1982. A golfer
with the bad habit of carry-
ing his tee in his mouth was
poisoned by Daconil, a fungi-
cide applied to the course
twice a week. While playing
36 holes at the Army/Navy
course in Arlington, Va., he
began complaining to his
playing partners about a
headache, and died four days
later at the Bethesda Naval
Hospital. He apparently had
a hypersensitivity to the
chemical, which eventually
burned 80 percent of the
skin off his body and caused
major organ failure. Not a
nice way to go, but complete-
ly true. See ya.
Mike Lamond writes a
weekly golf column for the
Gondolier Sun.

County, North Port city


commission finally to meet


BYGEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


The long-awaited joint
meeting between the North,
Port commissioners and
Sarasota County commis-
sioners will happen.
What started as a meeting
request to discuss the parks
and recreation interlocal
agreement has turned into a
meeting where the city and
county will discuss issues
they face together.
"It took several months of
talking to get this meeting
together," said City Commis-
sioner Rue Berryman.
The meeting, scheduled
for '6 p.m. June 28 at the
Robert L. Anderson Admin-
istration Center in Venice, has
a big agenda: Community


Redevelopment Area; scrub
jay habitat conservation plan;
parks; water; Thomas Ranch;
and development, which
includes transportation and a
proposed
15,000-home
project.
The first
agenda item
will be 30
minutes of
public com-
ment, where
each speaker
has up to Mercier
three minutes
for items not on the agenda.
SAlso, the format includes
public comment during each
agenda item before either
board takes any action.
"Nothing is off the table,"
said County Commission


Chair Paul Mercier, adding
that items like Little Salt
Springs can be added to the
discussions.
"I see the meeting as a
clearing of the air on any
issues and to move ahead and
do good planning together,"
Mercier said.
Mercier said he's optimistic
that "a new day is coming to
hopefully look at the present
and plan for the future."
Before the joint meeting,
the boards will meet at 5 p.m.
for an informal dinner.
The Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center is lo-
cated at 4000 South Tamiami
Trail inVenice.

The request is in prepara-
tion for the center's upcom-
ing exhibit commemorating
the 60th anniversary of the
end of die war. Artifacts may
be lent for the exhibit or do-
nated to the center; the ex-
hibit is scheduled to open
later this summer.,
"Our goal is for the exhibit
to reflect the atmosphere of
Sarasota County during that
era, both as a'homefront' and


a training ground," said Ann
Shank, Sarasota County his-
torian. "If anyone was sta-
tioned here during die war, or
has stories or artifacts from
family members or friends
who were here at the time,
we'd like to hear from them.
"We'd love to have gifts or
loans of a wide range of mate-
rials, including uniforms,
supplies, memoirs, letters
and other memorabilia from
the period. While we are in-
terested in World War II in
general, the focus of this ex-
hibit is the local experience
during the war."
During World War II, Sara-
sota County was home to air
bases in Sarasota and Venice, a


USO facility in Newtown and
an Army-Navy club at the
Municipal Auditorium in Sara-
sota, among other facilities.
As citizens did throughout
the nation, Sarasota County's
families often opened their
doors to servicemen and
women who were stationed
here, offering hot meals, cold
drinks and friendship to sol-
diers and sailors, many of
whom were far from home.
People with information or
artifacts from the era are ask-
ed to contact Mark D. Smith.

County pledges support




for Little Salt Springs


BYGEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


"Little Salt Springs has the
ability to put North Port in the
national spotlight, and in a
favorable light," Sarasota
County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said.
At Mon-
day's City
Commission
meeting,
Steve Koski,
manager .of
the Little Salt
Springs Re-

Facility, said Thaxton
he felt bewil-
dered and confused as to why
the city would not step up to
help secure the remaining six
lots to preserve the Little Salt
Springs.
"I feel em-
barrassed that
we did noth-
ing to help the
man,"' Nordti
Port Commis-
sioner Rue
B err ry m a n
said. "I think ,
we should Patterson
have support-
ed it."
"After reading the article in
the Sun, I felt we can't let Little
Salt Springs go unprotected,"
said Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub,
who serit the article to staff to
start looking into how the
county could help protect the
site.
"Little Salt Springs is a
jewel that cannot be underes-


timated," she said.
."Here we have a site that
holds artifacts of the fist
humanoids to walk on the
North American continent,"
County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said.
"We're talking Paleo here,"
said Thaxton,
who believes
the site is a
significant re-
source for the
,nation. .?e
"It rises to
the national
level, because
it shows signs
Staub of cultural
habitation,"
Thaxtoin said.

Off the top
Thaxton said he, under-
stands North Port's 'precau-
dion, calling it a "natural reac-
tioni because of dithe situation
they face."
"Putting the lots in preser-
vation today, will benefit us all
many times over," he said.
I "Taking the lots off the top
(of the 2,200 abandoned lots)
makes sense to me," County
Commissioner Nora Patter-


son said.
Patterson said this is an
opportunity for the county
and city to agree on some-
thing and do some mutual'
good: "It is an easy decision."
Koski, reached by phone,
said it's a great idea. However,
he wished that North Port
would have taken the lead on
his request.
"I'd hate to see North Port
be on the sidelines instead of
being a partner onthis," Koski
said. "I am fine with the coun-
ty and city working together
to secure the remaining lots."
By taking the lots off the1
top of the 2,200 abandoned
lots, Thaxton said the county
and city will significantly
share the responsibility.
"Let's put aside the petty ,
differences," Thaxton said,
adding the city and county
need to get Little Salt Springs
protected while the real estate
market is still favorable.
Staub said the county will
put this on the lune 28 Board
of County Commnission meet-'
ing agenda.

Tuition increase for Manatee Community College


Purr-fect pals







----



















SUN PHOTO BY DEBBIE SHULMAN
Karen Kroll holds two of the "wall kitties" she's been foster parenting
since they were rescued after falling between the walls of a Venice
building in May. The two boys shown here, Wally and Slim, have a
sister, Sable, who is all black. A fourth kitten died shortly after they
were found. Anyone interested in giving the 8-week-old kittens a
[ loving, permanent home, preferably together, is welcome to contact
Kroll at kksiesta@comcast.net.


STAFF REPORT

Students will be paying 5
percent more to attend Man-
atee Community College this
fall.
A 5-percent increase in
tuition is included in the
state's funding increase. The
cost for in-state students will
rise from $61.11 per hour to
$66.11. A student taking 15
hours in a term will pay $75
more; that is $658.35 less than
the average cost of tuition for
15 hours at a Florida public
university.
Out-of-state students will
pay $245.05 per load hour, up
from $227.81.
Tuition to Florida commu-
nity colleges is still among the
lowest in the nation.

publishers of the Son Herald Newspapers


A $35.5 million operating
budget, up $2.1 million from
last year's original operating
budget of
$33.4 million,
was approved
by Manatee
Community
College's
trustees at a
June 23 meet-
ing.
For the
seventh con- Pappas
secutive year,
MCC's budget was formulat-
ed based on priorities set by A
committee of MCC adminis-
trators, faculty members,
career employees and stu--
dents.
"The proposed balanced
budget will allow us to con-
tinue. providing effective
,instructional programs,
enhance distance learning,
strengthen our response to
community workforce
demands by creating or
expanding career and techni-


cal programs, and' continue
our campus improvement
project to MCC Venice," said
MCC President Dr. Sarah H.
Pappas.
The 2005-06 budget re-
flects a 4.61-percent increase
in state dollars from last year.
About 59 percent of the fund-
ing for MCC's operating bud-
get comes from the state, with
the remaining 41 percent
coming largely from student
fees and tuition.
The committee set as its
primary objectives the fund-
ing of initiatives that support
student success and retention
and MCC's Quality Enhance-
ment Plan, which places em-
phasis on distance learning.
A new Early Alert System
designed to recognize signs
that a student needs special
help and offer early remedies
will enhance student reten-
tion. Funding also is desig-
nated for making available
online additional student ser-
vices including admissions,

Residents urged to participate in
upcoming community conversations
Interested citizens will have four more opportunities in the next two
months to participate in community conversations hosted by
Sarasota County Administrator Jim Ley. The informal sessions are.
designed to identify what residents value in the community and what
legacy they want to leave for future generations.
Two community conversations have been held so far, one in south
Venice and one in north Sarasota. At the most recent session, held
June 9 at the North Sarasota Public Library, neighborhood.
preservation, protection and enhancement emerged as the top value,
while affordable housing was the legacy that residents most wanted
to pass on to future generations.
Also ranked high in the values category were a low crime rate and
government representatives who reflect the wants and needs of the
community. Among other top-rated legacies were recreational
activities for teens, affordable and good public transportation and 100
percent voter turnout at elections.
All of the community conversations are held from 5:30-7 p.m. While
walk-ins are welcome to attend, residents'are asked to contact the
Sarasota County Call Center at (941)861-500,0 to reserve a spot at
the most convenient meeting date and location. The remaining four
community conversations are:
* Monday, June 27, Bayfront Community Center, .803 N. Tamiami
Trail / Exhibition Hall, Sarasota;
Thursday, July 7, Englewood Sports Complex, 1300 South River
.Road, Englewood; .
Monday, July 18, Twin Lakes Park, Green Office Complex,

OUR VIEW



Harris, Foley and Mack must take the lead


Give Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez
credit. They did their best to waylay a
measure in President George Bush's
energy bill that would allow the taking of an
inventory of gas and oil resources in the Gulf:
of Mexico a move that most lawmakers see
as a preliminary move toward drilling there.
Nelson, a Democrat, and Martinez, a
Republican, joined forces with senators from
other 'coastal states to attack the inventory,
arguing the Interior Department already has
a good idea of oil and gas resources beneath
the Outer Continental Shelf and doesn't need
a new accounting.
"It's the first step to drilling. It's the prover-
bial camel's nose under the tent," Nelson told


the Associated Press.
Nelson and Martinez offered an amend-
ment to stop the inventory, but it was defeat-
ed 52-44 in a close, nonpartisan vote.
Now it is up to our representatives in the
House to stop the measure one most of
them approved in an earlier vote.
The energy bill, including the measure
calling for an inventory, will go to a confer-
ence committee made up of members of the
Senate and House where final changes and
compromises will be made.
; The only chance Florida has to stop the
inventory is if Reps. Katherine Harris, Mark
Foley and Connie Mack rally all Florida's law-
makers to put pressure on committee mem-


bers to strike the amendment. While that is a
long shot, it is still possible.
We believe the amendment is ill conceived
for more than the obvious reason that it sets
the stage for oil and gas drilling off the Gulf
Coast.
Nelson, and others, joined environmen-
talists to argue that the processes used to take
an inventory, including seismic testing,
would be harmful to sea life that is now pro-
tected from such activities.
"What we're doing under this bill is some-
thing new. We are doing seismic explosions"
using air guns on the ocean floor, said
Nelson.
Lawmakers from other states northern


states especially, where natural gas prices
have skyrocketed are pushing for this
amendment and for drilling in the gulf. They
are working for their constituents, trying to
boost a supply of oil and gas that they believe
would lower prices.
While we understand the reason behind
their actions, we believe prices will continue
to stay high as long as the United States relies
so much on foreign oil and does little 'or
nothing to conserve energy.
We hope our representatives will fight the
measure and not fall in line with the admin-
istration to rubber stamp an energy bill that
could lead to environmentally dangerous
drilling off our coast.


Would another be


hospital healthy?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


There is some irony in
Sarasota Memorial Hospital
deciding to put a hospital on
Laurel Road less than 5 miles,
as the car drives,.from Venice
Regional Medical Center. It
wasn't long ago that, Mem-
orial fought against a hospital
in North Port, saying there
was no need. How quickly
need arises, I guess.
There's a debate about
whether there should be' two
hospitals. One side feels that
competition is good for the
consumer and will keep
prices low and service at its
best to insure the best care
possible. There is some sub-
stance to this argument.
The other side of the
debate says that both hospi-
tals have struggled to make
money, especially because of-
the heavy burden of N medicare
and indigent patients they"
handle. Each has had to make
drastic cuts to staff and ser-'
vice. How could each one
make it by keeping prices low
and cutting up the pie into
two? Memorial can tax, Ven-
ice can't.: So Venice would
likely be the most heavily.
affected.
Memorial has said it would
provide services not provided
at VRMC, specifically obstet-
rics and- mental health. That
certainly sounds nice, but it is
not real clear what exactly
that includes. For instance,
obstetric services might well
be outpatient, with women
still having to have their ba-
bies delivered in Sarasota.
That, then, is a marginal ben-
. efit.
No one would argue about
a hospital if the new services
were its sole intention, but
the fact is it is going to com-
pete for lots of other business
as well.
For a long time South
County folks have cried that
they pay taxes to Memorial'
but get nothing for it, that the
services they pay to receive,
are just too far away. You will
Snow be able to avail yourself
and feel better about your
taxes.
But one thing you hadn't
bargained on is that more
than likely they will be in-
creasing the millage to pay for
this. Talk last fall was that the
hospital board would in-
crease it by one mill if they
added a hospital in Venice.
With no Venice decision at the
time, the board went with a
smaller increase. I'd expect
they will increase the millage
to help fund this project.


The folks at VRMC don't
have the luxury of taxing
folks, they just have to run a
good ship and make it pay.
They have made some chang-
es that would seem to be in
the right direction, but it is
way to early to tell.
I do not know what, if any,
state regulation there is on
Sarasota Memorial's desire.
Usually when you start a new
hospital you have to have per-
mission to add the number of
beds you are asking for, but
since all hospitals have way
.more' beds allocated than
they need, many have gotten
approval to take the beds in
one location and move them
to another.
It would seem the regula-
tors ought to determine if
there really is a need because
two in-debt institutions is not
healthy for any cornmunity.

younger citizens here who
have become second-class
citizens to the elderly. Why
don't young people return to

No spanking. I'm speaking
up about the letter, Spare the

began my teaching career 30
years ago, educators were
allowed to spank children.
Did it stop bad behavior? No.
'It taught children how to
abuse. The difference 30 years
ago was that parents took
their parenting seriously and
did not relinquish that role to
teachers. Our society needs to
reset priorities. If you have a
child, the parent should be
the one responsible to teach
respect, values and discipline.
Schools, I agree, are not there
for baby-sitting. If they were,

for the most part, the skate-

and should not be banished
from using their boards in

Unaffected. One Sunday's
paper seemed to center
around a particular individ-

tal and it was quite an essay,
which I am sure would apply
to him but not the general
community. And I also won-
der if the fact his mother-in-
law is a writer for the paper
did not help him get this big
spread. Let's get back to local
news, not personal problems.
Send them home. Parents
should be the only ones to


spank a child, so if a child
does not behave in school,
send him home without the
handcuffs. If a parent loses a
job because he has to stay
home with his brat, just
maybe he will realize he is a
bad parent.
Look homeward. The first
lady of the U.S. is in the
Middle East trying to achieve
equality of women. The U.S.
ranks only 17th in women's
rights because it doesn't pro-
vide enough benefits for
women with children. Yes,
two apples can equal two
oranges.
Freeze. Our burgeoning
population of Northern re-
tirees requires an ever-in-
creasing supply of service
workers. Therefore, adequate,
affordable housing is a neces-
sity. Otherwise, we will face
unbearable waiting times for
service and soaring service
prices as we scramble to
attract workers.
Unless we are willing to be
surrounded by trailer parks, it
seems prudent to annex
cheap land in a less-than-
prime location and demand
that developers build houses
that, the less affluent would
actually be happy to own.
This can be accomplished by
a freeze on permits to build
more expensive housing until
our goal is met.

tive Christians have used the
media, the government and
someone's personal tragedy
to further their agendas. They
have taken Terri Schiavo's
very private right to die and
turned it into a religious mat-
ter, rather than a constitu-
tional rights matter.
It sickens me that they
continue to use Jesus every
time they want laws changed
to suit their religious beliefs.
They are being hypocritical to
the very teachings of Jesus.


If you know your religion,
you know Jesus was born for
one reason: to die for your sins.
It was his sole purpose. Where
would you be if you had stop-
ped him from his wish to die? It
was his wish and God made
sure it came to pass.,
I am disgusted people call
Terri's death "murder." She
was not murdered. She was
allowed to live with no med-
ical intervention..
If God wanted her life to go
on, he would have allowed
her to live without someone
artificially forcing her to stay
alive. How do any of you


know that God didn't want
her to die years ago?
The administration decid-
ed it would be a good voting
tool to step in. It should bring
you shame. It should also

canes Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne are the
largest disaster in FEMA his-
tory. The Sunshine State be-
came the first state since Tex-
as in 1886 to be struck by four
hurricanes in a single year.
200: Following one of the
nation's worst disasters, more
than 200 volunteer agencies
responded.
740: FEMA received a
record number of applica-
tions approximately 740,
and more expected, for miti-
gation grants from local gov-
ernments. Mitigation grants
help Florida become more
disaster-resistant.
800: Currently, 800 FEMA
and other federal personnel
work at the Florida Long-
Term. Recovery Office in Or-
lando, a rare exception need-
ed as a result of the magni-
tude of the 2004 season.
2,600: At the peak of its
disaster recovery operation,


more than 2,600. FEMA per-
sonnel were deployed to
Florida in support of state
and local response and recov-
ery efforts.
9,600: Disaster medical
teams treated more than
9,600 patients for storm-relat-
ed injuries.
11,000: More than 2,700
eligible applicants mainly
county and local government
officials have applied for
federal funding of emergency
measures, debris removal and
infrastructure repair projects.
So far, FEMfA has approved
more than 11,000 projects for
funding.
140,000: More than
140,000 volunteers from all
parts of the country came to
the aid of Floridians. Thou-
sands continue to help repair
and rebuild homes as part of
a statewide long-term recov-
ery initiative.
368,000: The American
Red Cross and other agencies
sheltered more than 368,000
residents before and after the
four hurricanes blasted
through Florida.
1.2 million: Due to the se-
verity of the back-to-back dis-
asters, more than 1.2 million
Floridians applied for federal
and state assistance through
FEMA's registration system,
setting an agency record. Na-


tionwide on Sept. 28, 2004,
FEMA took a record 44,800
applications in a single 24-
hour period.
6.4 million: So far, volun-
teers from around the coun-
try have worked more than
6.4 million hours in Florida.
9.5 million: All total, state
officials estimate that more
than 9.5 million people evac-
uated Florida during the his-
toric hurricane season..
102 million: The estimat-
ed value of volunteer service
already exceeds $102 million.
400 million: So far, FEMA
has set aside more than $400
million to fund mitigation pro-
jects designed to minimize
future property, infrastructure
and economic losses caused by
disasters. For instance, an
$8,000 investment in hurricane
shutters for a fire station may
save $500,000 in damages dur-
ing the next hurricane not to
mention the cost of lost ser-
vices.
1.1 billion: To date, FEMA
has approved more than $1
billion in grants to reimburse
emergency work and fund
infrastructure repair projects
submitted by state, county
and local government offi-
cials.

Free quitting program for
tobacco chewers ends enrollment July 1.


STAFF REPORT


The ChewFree.com re-
search study, sponsored by
the National Cancer Institute,
expects to close enrollment
soon. More than 2,000 Amer-
icans have already used this
free Web-based program to
help them quit their addiction
to chewing tobacco or snuff.
Log on to chewfree.com be-,
fore July 1 and you, too, can
be free from chew by In-
dependence Day.
People who've used the
program are enthusiastic
about ChewFree.com. A Pen-
nsylvania participant, age 37,
writes, "I have finally found
-freedom. No more dipping,
no more of the can control-
ling me. There is a wonderful
freedom awaiting all those
people who have quit and are
going to quit. This is a great
place to be." A Colorado man,
age 45; writes, "Thank you
again for re-introducing hope
into my attitude about quit-
ting, and for showing me
enough options that I feel
there MUST be an approach
that works in here some-


where!"
The ChewFree.com quit-
ting program addresses the
special difficulties faced by
chew and snuff users. All par-
ticipants have access to a
Web site containinginfor-ma-
tion and quitting resources
that have already helped thou-
sands of chewers to quit.
Participants are asked to com-
plete research questionnaires
online to help evaluate the.
program. Results to date
show that the Web site is ef-
fective in helping chewers to
quit, and that people find
the site easy to use and help-
ful.
For more information, or
to sign up for the study, log
on to chewfree.com.
Facts about
smokeless tobacco
* Smokeless tobacco use is
widespread, especially among
young men.
* More than 5 percent of
American males use snuff or
chew products daily.
* In Florida, more than
145,000 people are regular
smokeless users.


* Smokeless tobacco use
leads to oral cancer, other
cancers and heart disease.
* The U.S. Surgeon General
has concluded that smokeless
tobacco can cause oral can-
cer and can lead to nicotine
addiction.
* More than three-quarters of
daily users have noncancer-
ous and precancerous les-
ions in their mouths.
* Smokeless use has been
linked to cancers of the
esophagus, larynx and stom-
ach, and is a risk factor for
cardiovascular disease.
Smokeless tobacco is addic-
tive and as difficult to quit as
smoking.
* Chewers and dippers have
similar, or even higher, levels
of nicotine in their blood-
streams than smokers who
smoke a pack of cigarettes
or more per day.
* Withdrawal from regular.
smokeless tobacco use re-
sults in the same withdrawal
symptoms and discomfort
observed in heavy cigarette
smokers attempting to quit.
* Many smokeless users
want to quit, but few re-
sources exist to help them.

recognized for advances in quality


STAFF REPORT

Venice Regional Medical
Center has been recognized
by Florida Medical Quality

JThe hospital was honored
for its work in advancing the

ing with Medicare providers.
"This award recognized our
many efforts to educate staff
and physicians regarding qual-
ity care initiatives being pro-
moted by Medicare, the

ciation and the Joint Com-
mission on Accreditation of
Healthcare Organizations, with
the ultimate result of improv-
ing patient care," said Sharon

VRMC is one of only 26
hospitals that received the

award. Fewer than 7 percent
of participating hospitals were
honored. Doctors' Hospital is
the only other hospital in
Sarasota County that received
this award.
Home Health Services of

DOH announces decrease



in HIV cases among blacks


Efforts of the many heroic community
based programs result in a phenomenal


decrease of the disease.
STAFF REPORT
Today Florida Department
of Health (DOH) Secretary
John 0. Agwunobi, M.D.,
M.BA., M.PH., announced a
30 percent-decrease over the
past six years of HIV cases
among blacks in Florida. HIV
cases in Florida have drop-
ped 24 percent among black
men and 36 percent among
black women.
DOH strives to cut the
new HIV infection rate
among blacks by half in the
next few years.
"DOH is fervently working
to close the gap between


adequate health and Flor-
ida's minority populations,"
said Agwunobi. "The depart-
ment attributes this success
to our HIV prevention mea-
sures and efforts to reduce
barriers to early diagnosis
and increase access to quality
care and treatment for all
Floridians."
Florida also has seen an
84 percent decrease in
mother-to-child HIV cases
among blacks from 43 in
1998 to seven in 2004. There
have been no reported cases
. of mother-to-child HIV cases
so far this year. Recently, Gov.


Jeb Bush signed CS/CS/SB
186 a bill that makes the
HIV testing of pregnant
women a routine part of
obstetrical care. This legisla-
tion also makes HIV infection
reporting consistent with
guidelines from the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) and revises
criteria for the release of posi-
tive preliminary HIV test
results.
Florida has one of the
largest HIV testing programs
in ,the U.S. with nearly
300,000 tests performed last
year. Testing is only part of

this mulch comes from and its true cost to
wildlife.
Cypress trees grow in wildlife-rich wetlands
in the southern United States, home to the
newly rediscovered and endangered ivory-
billed woodpecker, as well as owls, herons,
deer and other wildlife.
Cypress trees can live for up to 1,500 years
and grow to 150 feet tall and 25 feet in girth.
However, fewer and fewer are left. That's
because cypress is being clear-cut from wet-
lands to make mulch and the trees are not
being replanted.
Fortunately, there are alternatives that make
it possible to do the best for both your flowers
and to protect the forests for future genera-
tions. For example, recycled yard waste, pine
bark and pine straw can make great mulch and
at the same time offer hope to the wildlife liv-
ing in cypress forests by reducing the demand
for cypress mulch.,

The child is father of the man


KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST

We have one of the most
amazing new resources in our
community. There is a new
young people's center for ages
13-18 on Ogden Road in
Venice. The South County
Young Adult Center is located
in the previous warehouse of
the Last Straw store.
According to Executive Di-
rector Edward Eagan, the
mission is:
To offer the young adults of
Venice/South County a place
with a safe and accepting
atmosphere where. they can
discover and develop positive
life skills, enhance their self-
esteem and leam alternative'
ways to challenge themselves
to achieve their maximum


potential.
While listening to Ed talk,
my mind wandered to think-
ing about my hometown of
Augusta, Mo., and my grand-
parents. I thought about all
the adults in this small town
who were influential in my
upbringing. I could not help
but remember how impor-
tant older adults were in help-
ing move my life in positive
directions.
Then Mr. Eagan caught me
by surprise when he said, "28
percent of the kids who
attend Venice Senior High
School do not graduate." I
was shocked further when he
said of the 70 percent who do
graduate 50 percent use
drugs! How can our commu-
nity afford to lose so many
important lives? What is
needed to help these young
people have a successful
future?
Then I remembered some-
thing I read recently, "Most
seniors over the age of 65
spend almost 40 hours per
week watching TV" Thank
goodness the older folks in
my hometown invested their
time in the local kids, whether
theirs or not.


The Ostoff brothers were
three 6-foot, 5-inch farmers."
They were huge and tough,
they got the kids together at
the town strawberry social
each spring and we would all
wash the dishes together in
huge tubs of steaming water.
Laughing and splashing, we
were pleased with their inter-
est in us.
Elmer Kemp was so old his
dark skin was like the leather
on a well-worn saddle. He
knew the way of the woods
and taught me how to hunt
squirrels and find Morel
mushrooms. He knew the
best catfish spots along the
Missouri River sloughs. Mrs.
Kemp grew the reddest gera-
niums in front of their tiny lit-
tle house at the edge of the
woods. She was always ready
with a big smile and warm
welcome.
Mr. Kopeman had time to
tease us and give us one piece
of candy each day. We loved to
watch him milk his Jersey
cow. The kids would line ,up
behind him and the barn cats
on his left. He would aim the
milk into the cats' mouth or at
us if we were not quiet.
During Christmas week he


dressed like Santa and at dusk
he would knock on our win-
dow with a big wooden staff.
Moses and Santa all in one.
Boy, were we good! Santa was
watching.
There were others who
took the time to listen and
gently teach a kid by sharing
and by example. Just their
interest in me probably did
more good than anything
else. They invested their time
in my future and me.
Our kids need the older
adults of our community to
invest their time in them like
my grandparents, Mr. and
Mrs. Kemp, and the others
did for me. Think back: Who
invested their time and tal-
ents in you? Now, it is vital to
our kids for us, to invest our
time to help them reach their
potential. Call Ed Eagan at
408-1765 or visit the South
CountyYoung Adult Center at
1400 Ogden Road, Venice.
These young people are our
responsibility.

Protect yourself against identity theft


JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
I was reading an article last
month about identity theft and
how seniors have become a pri-
mary target. Can you tell me
more about this problem and
what I can do to protect myself?
I'm a 76-year-old widow and
don't have much money, but I
do have good credit and want to
keep it that way. Unknown
Identity :
Dear Unknown,
Identity theft is a big prob-
lem that has become the
fastest growing crime in the
United States. In fact, it's esti-
mated that each year more
than 10 million Americans'
are affected, many of whom
are seniors. Here's what you
should know.
ID theft
Identity theft occurs when
someone obtains access to
your Social Security number
(SSN), bank or credit card
account number, or other
identifying information and
uses it to steal from you.
There are a variety of ways
thieves can get their hands
on your personal informa-
tion. For example, they can
get it by stealing your purse
or wallet, taking your mail,


rummaging through your
trash or simply asking you for
it through some type of
scam.
ID protection
While there's no ironclad
protection against ID theft,
there are some steps you can
take to decrease your risk,
including:
Don't give 0out your SSNC
or financial information over
the telephone, in person or
over the Internet unless you
initiated the contact.
Make sure your SSN is
not on anything that doesn't
require it, like your checks or
driver license.
Tear up or shred all
records, statements, mail
solicitations or other papers
you throw out that has your
financial-or personal identi-
fying information.,
Secure your mail. Empty
your mailbox quickly, or get a
locked mailbox or P.O. Box.
Never leave ATM, credit
card or gas station receipts
behind.,
Don't carry your Social
Security card or any other
card that has youPID num-
ber, including your Medicare
card. Instead, carry a photo-
copy of the front and back of
the card and black out your
SSN.
Take your name off mar-
keting lists. You can cut down
the junk mail and e-mail you


receive at the Direct Mark-
eting Assodiation Consumer
Assistance Web site at dma-
consumers.org. To stop tele-
marketers, call the National
Do Not Call Registry at (888)
382-1222 or visit donotcall
.gov. And, to opt out of future
credit card solicitations call
the credit reporting industry
at (888) 567-8688 (they will
ask for your SSNl.
Review your credit card.
statements carefully and
request a copy of your credit
report every year and check
it for errors. You can get a free
annual copy from each of the
three major credit reporting
agencies by calling (877) 322-
8228, or visit annualcreditre-
port.com. (Eastern states will
be eligible for a free report
Sept. 1,)
Stop the stealing
If you suspect you've
become a victim of identity
theft there are several things
you can do to stop the steal-
ing:
First, contact the fraud
departments of each of the
three major credit bureaus
and place a "fraud alert" on
your credit file (Equifax (800)
525-6285, Experian (888)
397-3742 and Trans Union
(800) 680-7289.)'
Call your financial insti-
tutions and close all the
accounts you think have
been tampered with.

Where is home?


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

The other day a funny
thought entered my head.
Sometimes it takes a while for
things to soak in. When I first
started writing this column, I
mentioned a lot about people
wanting to keep their inde-
pendence, not wanting to
leave their home.
What, really, is home?
For economic reasons, I
share a room with another
lady. In one corner of the
room, I have my reclining
chair, surrounded by a good
many of my possessions. On a
little table on my right is my
telephone, my answering ma-
chine, my talking book ma-
chine (as my family and
friends know, I couldn't live
without my phone or talking
books and a few other posses-
sions. On my left atop the air
conditioning unit are my
Kleenex and other necessities.
I spend most of my days right
here in my reclining chair.
And do you know what? I am
comfortable here. I feel inde-
pendent here. IfI had to move
somewhere I would probably
feel I had lost my indepen-
dence, my "home."
I have lived in a large nuni-
ber of houses, and before
coming here, in a condo. All of
them were "home."
There's an old saying,
"Home is,w"here the heartis."


You know older people all
feel they will never get sick or
incapacitated. Inevitably we
fight it but we do lose that
independence. Back then I
was urging folks to investigate
the different .facilities avail-
able, well, just in case they did
get older. Three fourths of the
people where I live were
forced to go somewhere when
something happened to force
the issue.
There are so many types of
senior living facilities avail-
able and new ones are con-
stantly being built. Some of
them are pretty dam nice. I
know many people don't
think they want to live with a
lot of older people, but some
of those are pretty nice too.
And do you know what?
Nothing in this life is perfect.
And as I pointed out before,
when one gets older and
dependent on transportation,
medicine, house and a yard,
are you really independent? I
did not dream I would live in a
facility for six years, but here I
am in my reclining chair, my
"home," dictating this to a
friendly helper.
When we were living in
Michigan, my husband's par-
ents in Bloomington, Ind.,
began to have problems they
could not handle alone. We
hired help in their home, but
it was not satisfactory, so we
moved them to a nursing
home in Big Rapids, Mich.,
where were living. We visited
them every day, but did we do
enough for them? Does one
ever? About once a month we
invited them over for the
evening. After about an hour
they would inevitably say,
"We want to go home."'I was
almost hurt and did not
understand. Now I do.

top five dating sites are older
than age 55, and more than 5
percent are older than age
65. Here's what you should
know.
Online dating
Not since high school or
college will you find such a
large number of potential
dates and mates in one
place. If you're interested in
dating again or, are just look-
ing for a friend to spend time
with, and have access to the
Internet, online dating ser-
vices can be a nice option.
Here are some things to
know.
Convenience: You can
meet hundreds of single peo-
ple that tickle your fancy
without ever leaving your *
home. Also, by exchanging e-
mail you get to know each
other slowly, without the
awkwardness that comes
with first dates. Most sites
also offer instant messaging
and chat rooms.
Costs: Most online dat-
ing services allow you to cre-
ate your own personal pro-
file, post photos and search
for compatible members for
free. But, when you're ready
to start contacting people,.
you'll have to become a


member, which typically
costs between $20 and $50
per month.
Safety: When you sign up
with a dating or matchmak-
ing service you remain
anonymous. No one should
ever get access to your full
name, address, phone num-
ber or e-mail address until
you decide to give it out at
your own discretion. Be very
prudent with giving out your
personal information!
Informative: Most sites
offer personality profiles of
their members that include
things like photos, hobbies,
interests, family history,
political beliefs, dreams,
goals and favorite activities
so you can get to know mem-
bers online before you
decide whether you'd like to
meet.
Pictures can lie: Unfor-
tunately, some people post
photos that were taken.many
years ago, or that are
extremely flattering and not
very true-to-life. If you
remember that they proba-
bly won't look as good as
their photo, you won't be as
disappointed.
People can lie: In an effort
to get more responses, or in
some cases to deliberately


mislead, some people lie in
their profiles, so don't believe
everything you read. If they
sound too good to be true,
they probably are.
Senior dating sites
More and more online
dating sites are recognizing
the growing number of single
boomers and seniors who
would love to find love and
friendship with a suitable
partner. Here are some top
sites that specialize in senior
matchmaking.
SilverSingles.com:
Owned by MatchNet, this is a
great senior dating Web site
with more than 8 million
members worldwide.
eHarmony.com: With
more than 6 million users,.
eHarmony has been courting
older singles by teaming up
with ThirdAge (a Web site for
boomers) and attending last
year's AARP convention.
SeniorFriendFinder.com:
A senior dating site and part
of the FriendFinder network.
It draws on a database of
more than 2 million mem-
bers.
PrimeSingles.net: This
site says it is for single men
and women 40 and older, but
the age group tends to be


more in their late 50s and
60s.
Match.com: While they
don't offer any special ser-
vices just for seniors,
Match.com is the world's
largest online dating service
(for people of all ages) with
more than 15 million mem-
bers, many of whom are
older than age 55.
New eye treatments
Dear Savvy Senior
I'm 46 years old and have
always had good all-around
vision but last month I had to
break down and get some
granny glasses because I can't
see up close anymore. I've
heard about a new "non-surgi-
cal" procedure that could cor-
rect my close-up vision (so I can
do away with the glasses) but I
can't remember the name of it.
Can you help me? I also would
like to know if there are any new
cataract treatments or proce-
dures that can help my mother.
- Shortsighted Sue
Dear Sue,
The close-up vision prob-
lem you're dealing with is
known as presbyopia, an
age-related eye condition
that affects more than 100
million Americans, usually
beginning in their 40s. Most,


people deal with presbyopia
with reading glasses, bifocals
or contact lenses, but today
there's a variety of new treat-
ment options to consider.
CK
The new "non-surgical"
procedure you asked about is
called conductive keratoplas-
ty (CK). CK corrects presby-
opia by using radio waves to
reshape the cornea and
improve close-up vision. The
best candidates for CK are
people over age 40 with good
distance vision but need
reading glasses. CK takes
only a few minutes, requires
an eye-drop anesthetic and is
usually performed on only
one eye. The other eye is left
untreated to handle distance
vision. The good news about
CKis that it doesn't involve
any cutting so it's safe and
effective. But the bad news is
that it's only a temporary fix
that will last a few years and
will have to be repeated if
you want to keep close-up
vision clear. Also, for some
people CK can cause prob-
lems with depth perception.
In most cases CK is not cov-
ered by insurance and typi-

DEUPREE from page 6B
I'm going to use a rhyme I
wrote a couple of years ago
that isn't a bit serious.

'A Chair With a
Strange Appetite'
The hours I spend in my
lounge chair are comforting
But what disappears in it is
a bit discomforting
My chair has a strange
appetite
Consuming things it has
no right! ..
A hearing aid is a tasty treat
Remote controls it loves to
eat
Loose coins it seems to
gobble up with glee
Eye glasses slide down
where you cannot see
Tissues are its very best
treat
And a good book is a gour-
met fete
What happened to the
pizza I was eating last night?
My lounger probably swal-
lowed it with utter delight

Vance issues top 10 air-travel safety



and security tips for overseas travelers


STAFF REPORT


Vance, a global investiga-
tion and security firm, re-
leased the top 10 safety tips
for U.S.-based travelers flying
abroad.
Events such as the bomb-
ing of a U.S. embassy and
increasing incidents of kid-
nappings and assaults dem-
onstrate just how vulnerable
business travelers are, espe-
cially when working overseas.
While it is impossible.to com-
pletely guarantee safety in
every situation, there are
many steps that an individual
can take to decrease the likeli-
hood of becoming a victim of
random violence or terror-
ism. Staying alert and being
aware of your surroundings
are the first steps to reduce
risk. .
1. Be informed about the
country you plan to visit.
Prior to your trip, be aware of
the customs, holidays, poli-
tics, climate and currency. .
2. Make 'sure that your
passport is valid for at least six
months. Make copies of your
passport and keep them in
separate pieces of luggage
along with passport photos. If
your passport is lost or stolen,
it will be much easier to get
the embassy to replace it if
you have these duplicates.
3. Know the entry restric-
tions of the country you are


visiting. For example, in some
countries, you cannot bring a
laptop computer. In others,
you can bring a laptop com-
puter into the country but
you can't take it out. If you are
required to take prescription
drugs, have a doctor write you
a prescription to take with
you as well as a letter describ-
ing your condition and need
for the drugs.
4. Be aware of the medical
facilities available to you in
the destination country and
their required means of pay-'
ment. Be aware of the med-
ical problems in the country
to be visited and obtain all
suggested vaccinations prior
to leaving. Most countries do
not accept American medical
insurance.
5. Take an active part in
making your flight: arrange-
ments and travel on estab-
lished, reliable airlines. If pos-
sible, schedule only direct
flights and stay away from
high-risk airports. Should you
have to schedule a layover, be
aware of what time you arrive
and the amount of time
between flights. Many foreign
airports have poor security
during very early morning
hours. For in-country travel
or travel between ports in
Europe, use a reliable inter-
national carrier because
some of the potentially unre-
liable airlines don't have the


same maintenance policies
and tend to travel to second
or third tier airports that put a
traveler in places where lan-
guage or security may be an
issue.
6. When arriving at the air-
port, pick up your tickets and
quickly move from the public
areas to the secure section
located beyond the metal
detectors and X-ray ma-
chines. Move away from areas
where there are unattended
packages or luggage. Be
aware of what is going on
around you and who may be
paying attention to you.
7. Do not wear any cloth-
ing or other items with corpo-
rate logos or other insignias
on them that identify you as
an American. This includes
luggage and luggage tags that
can be exposed so that your
name or company name can
be readily seen. A good rule of
thumb concerning jewelry is
to leave behind anything that
you would not want to lose.
8. Be aware of the various
airport scams, some of which
occur at the entrance to the
secure area. Targets include
laptop computers, purses
and expensive briefcases. In
one common scenario, the
traveler's attention is distract-
ed when they place belong-
ings on the conveyor of the X-
ray machine and an accom-
plice takes them.,


9. Baggage claim is an area
where criminals can target
their victims. Criminals are
looking for people who ap-
pear to be wealthy, such as
those wearing expensive jew-
elry or clothes or those who
have expensive luggage. Do
not wear logos designating
major corporations or Amer-
ican universities.
10. Prior to leaving for your
trip contact your local office,
if you have one in your desti-
nation city, and determine
which taxi companies are
reputable or what other
means of transportation is
available. Many foreign air-
ports have licensed and unli-
censed taxicabs. Make sure
you have some idea of the
route from the airport to the
hotel or office to which you
are going, and that you nego-
tiate the rate before you leave
the airport.

around the comer so they'll
be able,to spend a lot of time
together.
Since grandfather John is
known as John "K" it will be
fun to see if little Tommy
becomes Tommy "K."
Congratulations to the
family for this terrific news.
Alaskan adventure
Not many of us would
think of renting an RV and
exploring Alaska but that is
exactly what council member
Bill Willson and his wife,
Debbie Lawrence, decided to
do for their summer trip.
They enjoyed the splendor
and beauty of Alaska while
camping and fishing. Debbie
said there were times when
they were the only humans
surrounded by the natural
beauty.
The couple will be enjoying
the fruits of this trip for a long
time as they were able to
bring home about 60 pounds
of fish they caught.
New studio in town
If you hear someone mak-
ing sounds on a cute clay
whistle, chances are they
made the instrument in one
of Sister Maureen Michael's
clay classes. This terrific tal-
ented artist and teacher
opened her new studio at 227
W. Miami Ave. in Suite 3 and
hopes everyone will stop in
and visit.

Kathy Winder deserves a pat
on the back.
This terrific lady cooks and
serves fabulous food at their
-receptions.
She also runs the Final
Touch Frame and Gallery and
does a lot of the framing for
the artists.


Moonbow phenomenon a popular attraction at Cumberland Falls


BY HOWARD SHAPIRO
GUEST WRITER


Chasing down Mother Na-
ture's phenomena can be
maddening. I had arrived
here, at Cumberland Falls
State' Resort Park, on a clear
morning but now, clouds
appeared overhead. If I were
to see the big deal here, the
moonbow that shoots from
the waterfall's mist only a
clear, moonlit sky would do.
Aside from the waterfall,
which drops 60 feet into the
gorge below, Cumberland
Falls has several attractions. It
has a lodge and cottages and
camping and a nice dining
room. It has an 'Olympic
swimming pool and a teensy
but interesting museum, plus
fishing and rafting and horse-
trail riding.
It has people who speak in
authentic Kentucky Colonel
'accents, one of the prettiest
musical twangs in the Eng-
lish-speaking world. Down
the road, the area has the first
KFC, where the Colonel him-
self helped make fast food a
worldwide phrase.
Its major, elusive attrac-
tion, though, is a shaft of light
that shoots out of the falls, if
conditions allow, during the
week of each month's full
moori. They call it the moon-
bow. This happens other
places, too Victoria Falls in
South Africa, for one but
according to the park's ad-
ministration, Cumberland
Falls is the, only place it hap-


pens with regular visibility in
the Western Hemisphere.
The intensity of the falling
water, the great mist it gener-
ates when it smacks rock-bot-
tom and its placement in the
general topography combine
with full-moon skies to shoot'
a beam of light into the night.
Specifically, "the moofbow
happens because when the
moonlight hits the falls at a
42-degree angle, it's reflected.
back (through the mist). It's
visible because the viewer is
standing between the moon-
light and the falls," explains
Steve Gilbert, the park's recre-
ation supervisor, whose de-
partment is responsible for
the naturalism program.'
To see the moonbow, you
have to wait until about 10 or
10:30 p.m., when the moon is
reaching its proper position
to shine. on the falls. Just
before 10 p.m. the night I was
there, it began to rain heavily

and that turned to torrents, so
all hope vanished. Because
I'm a sucker for stalking nat-
ural phenomena, I wondered
whether I'd always be chasing
moonbows.
The second night began
with a slight clouding over,.
and then, an hotr or so later,
the clouds began to dissipate
and the moon began to rise,
powerful and sterling.
SPeople around the lodge
were smiling and ready for a
nmoonbow. At 10 p.m. we all
took the short walk to the
falls, lovely even without a
moonbow. We stepped care-

heads, beamed onto the 125-

water and the mist that
rebounded, high into the air.
I would not call the moon-

electric look changed in in-

edges. Some others saw it as

Finding the best shopping and museums in Chicago


BY MICHAEL MARTINEZ

Q: Do you have recommen-
dations for the best shopping
centers and tourist sites in
Chicago? S.H., San Jose, Calif.
A: Theiperson who coined
the pluase "shop till'you
drop" must have had
Chicago's Magnificent Mile in


mind. It's a mile-long stretch
of North Michigan Avenue,
between Oak Street and the
Chicago River, with four ;,
major shopping centers, plus
boutiques, restaurants and
hotels. Our personal favorite
is Water Tower Place, an
eight-level atrium with more
than 100 shops, including
Marshall Field's, Lord &


Taylor, Lacoste and the
Territory Ahead. Details: the-

art, free classical music and
the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, an


outdoor concert venue
designed by architect Frank
Gehrv.
Q: We'll be visiting Valpa-
raiso, Chile, and want to visit
Machu Picchu while in South
America. What's the best way to
reach Peru from Chile? Should
we look into a tour? B.T.,

In dollar's


rough seas, cruises help keep budget afloat


BYARLINE BLEECKER
GUEST WRITER

The dollar is sinking like
the Titanic.
Faced with high prices in
Europe and the Mediter-
ranean, American travelers
might cast about for an eco-
nomiclifeboat. But as the dol-
lar dips, the cost of food, lodg-
ing andtransportation keeps
rising.


BEST '., f ,'_,
the most flight options.
"You will have to fly from
Santiago, about two hours
fromValparaiso, to Lima, and
from there make a connec-
tion to Cuzco, the closest city
to Machu Picchu," she said.
"From Cuzco, it is at least five
hours by train to Machu
Picchu and there's no get-
ting around this. The train is
the only way to get there
since there is no road."
Although it's possible to
create your own itinerary,
Miranda advises contacting a
tour already in progress, and
you might be able to find one
in Chile that's going to
Machiu Picchu. Try Holbrook
Travel (holbrook-tavel.com),
Preferred Adventures (pre-
ferredadven rues.comrn),
International Expeditions
(intemationalexpeditions.co
m) or Abercrombie & Kent
(abercrombiekent.comn).
She also offers this advice
on Machu Picchu: "This is a
huge, magnificent site. If
you're going to go all the way
there, make it worthwhile by
spending at least one night
(or two) in the village at the
base of the ruins, Aguas
Calientes."

"Ifr'sA Pie You Goitta Try"-


To the rescue comes Cruise
Lines International Associ-
ation, which recommends
taking a cruise so-that you can
use your ship not only as your
lodging, but also as trans-
portation between the conti-
nent's major cities.
The association's sugges-
tion comes as no surprise.
After all, the organization is
the marketing arm of 19 lead-
ing North American cruise
lines.
Still, it makes a good point.
Terry Dale, the associa-
tion's president and CEO,
says: "Cruise vacations in Eur-
ope insulate travelers from
sticker shock abroad. Com-
pared with land travel, Euro-
pean cruises are a better
value, because guests pay for
transportation, meals, enter-'
tainment, transfers and other
costs in advance in dollars,
avoiding out-of-pocket costs
charged in euros."
I remember nearly falling
off my cafe chair in Rome
years ago, when my husband
and I were presented with a
$75 bill for two spaghetti
lunches sans wine at an
eatery near the Pantheon. A,
slew of charges had been
added for bread, for sitting at
an outside table, even for cut-'
lery and water. And in Paris,
our espressos at a Mont-
martre cafe overlooking the

City of Light set us back more
than $20.
And that was when the
dollar was strong.
If you're searching for an
economical way to absorb
Europe's treasures, cruising
might actually be a bargain.
CLIA-affiliated lines that
will sail in Europe this sum-
mer include Carnival, Celeb-
rity, Costa, Crystal, Cunard,
Holland America, MSC, Nor-
wegian, Norwegian Coastal
Voyage, Oceania, Orient, Rad-
isson, Princess, Royal Carib-
bean, Seabourn, Silversea,
Swan Hellenic and Windstar.
Two of those lines will
debut ships in Europe. From
July 20 to Oct. 12, Carnival
Cruise Line's new 110,000-ton
Carnival Liberty will sail eight
12-day Mediterranean itiner-
aries roundtrip from Rome.
Featured ports on Carnival's
first foray in Europe include
Naples, Italy; Dubrovnik, Cro-
atia; Venice, Italy (two-day
call); Messina, Sicily; Barce-
lona, Spain; Cannes, France;
and Livorno, Italy. Norwegian
Cruise Line's newest launch,
Norwegian Jewel, will depart
London roundtrip for a 13-
day Mediterranean cruise on
Aug. 10.
For fans of maiden voy-
ages, the new ships mean a
trip on a craft fresh out of the
shipyard a chance to be


among the first passengers on
board, with spanking new
carpets, pristine linens and
hitherto untouched dinner-
ware.
Also on the docket abroad:
Costa Cruises' 10-ship
fleet offers three-to-16-night
voyages in the Eastern and
Western Mediterranean; Ca-
nary Islands; Spain and Port-
ugal; Russia and Scandinavia;
the Norwegian Fjords, North
Cape and Iceland; and Scot-
land and the British Isles.
MSC Cruises sails seven
ships on European and Med-.
iterranean itineraries out of
the ports of Venice, Genoa,
Civitavecchia and Copenha-
gen.
Last year, the line called in
Tripoli for the first time and
returns there this year. The
line's flagship, MSC Opera,
departs Venice Nov. 9 on an
11-night itinerary that calls in
Split, Athens, Alexandria,
Tripoli, Valletta, Malta and
Naples.
Among other options in
Europe:
Radisson's Seven Seas
Voyager will sail the Baltic and
the Mediterranean, while
Seven Seas Navigator sails the
Baltic, Iceland and Green-
land. The line also adds new
calls to Heimaey, Iceland;
Gdansk, Poland; Angmas-
salik, Greenland; and Tripoli,

Swan Hellenic's Minerva
II offers more than 15 Euro-
pean cruises, ranging from
eight to 15 days. Destinations
include calls in Malta, Italy,
Albania, Croatia, Slovenia,
Tunisia, France, Spain, Gi-
braltar, Portugal, the U.K.,
Sweden, Denmark, Poland,
Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Nor-

land and Iceland.
And Royal Caribbean's
cruises on Brilliance, Splen-
dour and Jewel of the Seas
pair land trips to regions of
England, France and Spain.
CLIA's Dale offers a few tips
to keep in mind:
If you're looking for value.
dine as much as possible
aboard ship. Meals and enter-
tainment are included in the
cruise fare.
Book an air/sea package
that includes transatlantic air
and ground transfers. Cruis-
ers can realize significant sav-
ings compared with the cost
of booking these components
separately.
Purchase sightseeing
tours from cruise lines. If you
buy them from local ground
operators you'll pay in euros.
Take advantage of com-
plimentary onboard lectures
that provide information on
the destinations visited.


These lectures, typically con-
ducted by distinguished ex-
perts, help you map out tours
to explore on your own if you
don't want to pay for the line's
excursions.
Extend your vacation
with optional hotel stays be-
fore or after the cruise. Again,
hotel costs are prepaid in U.S.
dollars.
For information on this
year's Europe sailings, contact
a CLIA-affiliated travel agent
or go to cruiselinesinterna
tional.com.

cally cost $1,500 to $2,000.
Other treatments
LASIK: A commonly used
laser surgery procedure that
reshapes the cornea to cor-
rect nearsightedness, far-
sightedness and astigmatism
can also treat presbyopia.
This is a quick procedure that
is performed in one eye cost-
ing $1,500 to $2,000 and is
rarely covered by insurance.
This option is best suited for
patients older than age 40
that have poor distance
vision and need reading
glasses too.
Clear Lens Extraction
(CLE): A surgical procedure
for people over age 40 whose.
vision is too poor to be cor-
rected by laser surgery. This
procedure involves removing
the eye's natural lens and
replacing it with one of sever-
al new FDA-approved artifi-
cial lenses (Crystalens, ReStor
lens and ReZoom lens) that
are designed to provide clear
vision at all.distances. CLE
cost $4,000 to $5,000 per eye
and it's typically not covered


by insurance.
Cataract lens for reading
Cataract surgery is one of
the safest and most success-
ful surgical procedures that
has recently gotten a little
better.
In a typical cataract
surgery, the surgeon will
remove the clouded lens and
replace it with a conventional
intraocular lens (IOL), which
can help restore distance
vision but will still require
you to use eyeglasses for
reading and other close-up
acivities., ,.
But now, with the new
FDA approved artificial lens-
es (the same as offered with
the CLE procedure) cataract
patients' sight can be restor-
ed at both near and distant
ranges so they can go glasses
free.
This new lens option typi-
cally costs around $4,500 per
eye. Medicare currently cov-
ers cataract surgery up to
around $2,000, so if you opt
for the new lenses; you will
have to pay the extra $2,500.

"Building our LEGACY one patient at a time"


Alzheimer's home safety
Dear Savvy Senior,
Last year my husband, who's
in his mid-70's, was diagnosed
with Alzheimer's disease. He's
still doing pretty well but I want
to be prepared for the inevitable.
Do you have any suggestions or
tips on how I can make our house
Alzheimer's safe? I would like for
him to remain at home with me
as long possible, but I feel like I
need to make some adjustments
now before it's too late. ton-
cerned Caregiver
Dear Concerned,
Caring for a person with
Alzheimer's disease (AD)is .a.
tough job that requires lots of
patience and creativity. One.
of the things that makes AD
so difficult for caregivers is
that it's unpredictable. You
never know what a person
with Alzheimer's might do.
Behaviors can range from
wandering, to rummaging
and hiding things, to having
hallucinations and impaired
senses. Here are some things
to consider to help make
your home safer as your hus-
band's AD progresses.


Prevention
It's estimated that around
4.5 million Americans suffer
fromnAD, and more than 70
percent of them live at home.
Since it's very difficult to pre-
dict what a person with AD
might do, plan for every-
thing. Here are some tips to
consider to help make your
home a safer place.
General safety tips
Keep all medications, al-
cohol, cleaning products,
matches, power tools, sharp
objects, small appliances,
knickknacks and guns locked
up.
Install smoke alarms in
all rooms.
Check all rooms for ade-
quate lighting. Poor lighting
can create confusing shad-
ows or difficulty interpreting
everyday items.
Cover unused electrical
outlets with childproof plugs.
Avoid clutter. It can cre-
ate confusion.
Remove throw rugs and
avoid the use of extension
cords.


Install childproof safety
latches on kitchen and bath-
room cabinets and drawers
and possibly the refrigerator.
Adjust hot water heater to
120 degrees to avoid scalding.
Remove knobs from the
stove or install an automatic
shut-off switch to prevent a
fire.
Use nightlights through-
out the house.
Consider turning off or
disconnecting your garbage
disposal. People with AD may
place objects or their own
hands in the disposal.
Move the bed against the
wall or put the mattress on
the floor for added safety and
do away with heating pads
and electric blankets.
Remove locks from the
bathroom and/or bedroom
doors to prevent your hus-
band from getting locked in.
Hide a spare house key
outside in case you get lock-
ed out.
Install locks that require
a key on all outside doors
and inside rooms you deem
unsafe.


FALLS from page 8B
refract light can differ in a full-
moon netherworld aura.
We stood and looked at it,
with about 100 other people,
for many minutes. I didn't
want to leave. The sensory
pull of bright skylight, cas-
cades of water echoing
through the dark, and this
white, eerie rim taken all
together, it was more than I
had expected, and something
I would probably never see
again..

WORDS WORTH
HEARING









By Vicki Connell, g
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My mother is 91 years
old and lives alone. She
wants to remain in her
home and won't consider
moving to an assistive living
facility. We are concerned
because she can't hear the
telephone ring when we call
her and she cannot hear the
doorbell when we visit. We
have startled her several
times when we have had to
enter the house without her
knowledge.
Any suggestions?
A. You are right to be
concerned about your
mother's situation and you
will need to equip her home
.with some special devices to
ensure her safety. First, you
will need to install a wireless
doorbell with an amplified
ringer. These. devices are
inexpensive and require no
wiring. Make sure she can
hear her doorbell from all
areas of the home. Next, she
will need an amplified phone
which can be obtained free of
charge from the state of
Florida. In order to receive a
phone, your mother will have
to be examined by an
Audiologist arid given a
special form to fill out. The
loudness of the ring can be
adjusted and the loudness of
the voices coming over the
phone can also be adjusted so
your mother can hear the
caller clearly. I would also
suggest you check to insure
your mother can hear her
smoke alarm and that it is
loud .enough to wake her. Call
the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. 492-
4327 and answer a few
simple questions so they can
evaluate your mother's
situation in more detail and
inform you about the many
devices available to make her
home safer.

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

Balloons are released by some of the more than 300 people who attended Skyler's memorial celebration at Venezia Park in Venice June 16.

SKYLER fi I
Three hundred friends and fami-
ly gathered Thursday, June 16, at
Venezia Park to celebrate the life of a
child who touched the lives of so
many, including his teammates on
the Venice Little League Alley Cats,
the Cub Scouts of Pack 311 and
countless others in .this quiet.
ordered town.
"My vision of my son right now
today is that he's this angel up theie
and he's a knight, a little kidd in-a
knight's suit, and he rides a horse
and he's like a superhero. He's got his
weapons and tools,'many of which
we laid to rest with him, and that
he's out there protecting his friends
and his family ... ," said Tom with
tears forming in his eyes.
Skyler had a, fascination for,
medieval things after a family trip to"
Germany in 2000. including a tour.
of a castle.
"He always came and ran to me.
for hugs. He always had his arms
around me," said Skler's mother,
Elisa Kuzniarek, who is also strug-
glingto understand why.
His death has shocked all in
Venice who knew him or his family.
Terry Tritschler, who coached
Skyler in Venice Little League and
also became close to him and his
family, said, "I remember his laugh-
ter, his outgoing ways. Everyone
enjoyed being around him. He was
the type of boy you looked forward
to seeing. I'll miss him."
Life had rarely been easy for this


child.
At age 2-1/2, when the family was
living in Macon, Ga., Skyler was
diagnosed with a rhabdomyosarco-
ma tumor on his liver. The highly
cancerous tumor grew from the size
of a walnut to that of a grapefruit in
week.
"A very bad prognosis; they didn't


hardship and suffering of his family,
and at the same time the joy he felt
from the wonderful support he and-
Elisa received.
Tom and Elisa's love and strength
were tested again when, at age 6,
Skyler, now in first grade, was diag-
nosed with Sensory Integration
Disorder, a dysfunction of the sen-.


blocks that were presented to him,'"
: said Elisa, trying to put into perspec-
tive her young son's life and death.
In fact, according to friends and
family who spoke at the memorial
celebration on a humid night under
Australian pines in Venezia Park,
Skyler lived life as any normal boy,
but a boy who always pushed him-

was a fighter," said Tom.
"He ended up having chemother-
apy and surgery, multiple surgeries
... he lost all his hair, lost his
appetite, had to have a feeding tube
in his nose," added Tom.
"He didn't eat for a year," Elisa
.said.

,,. E py lasted a year,

,. N, and their older
po0 ,,.. son, Julien, who
is now. 13.
"It was'ex-
tremely tough,
but our friends
and. family. in
Macon rallied
.around us, just
like they are
now," said Tom,
recalling the


sory system, which in Skyler's case.
manifested itself in extreme ampli-
fication of his senses of touch, taste
and hearing.
"Picture yourself: Wherever you
go the sound is always ... you're lost
in all the noise, and on top of it your
clothes itch because your senseof
touch is amplified ... your sense of'
taste, you know, everyone else loves
this and loves that and God, he
(Skyler) tasted it and Ahhhhh, it's
too spicy, quick, give me some wa-
ter '... You're in this overload con-
stantly and you have to find a way to
find peace and focus and concen-
trate to do whatever it is you want to
do," said Tom, describing Skyler's
condition as if he felt it himself
every day.
Skyler had also been diagnosed
with dyslexia.
"He wasn't a tremendously trou-
bled child, just some things were dif-
ficult for him.. But all in all he was a
happy-go-lucky child and he en-
joyed the same things other children
enjoyed. He just had major road-

self to do his best and test his limits,
despite his health problems.
Skyler loved to climb trees, ride
his bike and play with his friends.
Despite his small frame Skyler
weighed 52 pounds Tom said his
son gave his all at every at-bat with
the Alley Cats.
Elisa remem-
bers how she
adapted the
foods she got for a
Skyler because of
his amplified
sense of taste dis-
order: "He had a
particular set of
foods he loved.
He loved raw
spinach go fig-
ure he loved
peanuts, he loved
chicken."
Tom remem-
bers how he al-
ways challenged .
himself and' en-
joyed everything
Coach Terry Tritscl


he did to dithe full, "climbingthe high-
est darn trees, going on the
roof and riding his bike as fast as he
could."
"Holding his breath under the
water to. see how long he could
hold it and swimming the length of
the pool always pushing himself
as far as his little body could go,"
said Elisa.
The last week of Skyler's life
seems to have been filled with the
excitement and fun of any normal
boy enjoying his summer vacation.
Skyler, who had difficulty reading in
part because of his dyslexia, spent a
lot of time reading extensively those
days.
"He was able to sit and focus in
and concentrate on what he was
reading and actually enjoying it. He
was laughing and laughing and he
was taking his books everywhere
with him. That was a big change
with hin," Elisa said.
On the last night of his life, Skyler,
Tom ahd Elisa went to the Venice
fishing pier to watch the sunset.
Tom remembers it was a beautiful,
cool night widi a breeze blowing off
the Gulf of Mexico. Elisa remembers
watching Skyler in a moment now
fixed in time for her: "He had his ball
with him. He was running up and
down the pier. He didn't want to
leave."
"Every, day," Elisa said, "it's 'Why,
why why?'"
