Venice Municipal Mobile Home Park, established in 1972, is on airport property, and the rent tenants pay goes to fund
daily Venice Municipal Airport operations.


City-owned park to increase fees


Residents won't see the
increase in their monthly bill
as the moneyis being taken
out of the general
maintenance fund.
BYJ J.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Budget time is here again, and every.
city department is searching for a way
to stretch each dollar and obtain every-
thing on its wish list.
The Venice Municipal Airport is no
different. After the Airport Advisory
Board questioned the low rent at the
city-owned mobile home park, the
proposed budget has rent increasing
by 3 percent sort of.
Residents at Venice Municipal
Mobile Home Park will not see their
monthly lot bill, which varies from
$181 to $204 per month, go up.
Instead, the 3 percent increase will
come out of the general maintenance
fund used to operate and make repairs


ATA GLANCE
* The Airport Advisory Board has recom-
mended city council pass rental increase,
es for those who use the Municipal
Mobile Home Park and T-hangars.
*The 3-percent mobile home park
increase will come out of the general
maintenance fund, so renters will not
see their monthly rent bills increase.
- There are 187 lots at the park, and 185
of them are rented. Monthly charges
vary from $181 to 5204. Rent was $30 to
S35 per lot when the park opened in
1972.
* T-hangars are recommended to be
$245 per month, an increase of S20. Rent
was 560 per month when T-hangars
opened for use in 1977.

to:the park's conuion grounds.
The increase comes to nearly
$7,000. In 2004, rent at the park gener-
ated about $430,000 with about
$230,000 going directly toward airport
operations and the rest going back to
mobile home park maintenance.


It's that $200.000 in maintenance
ftmding the increase will be taken out
of.
"This is not a per lot increase,"
Airport Manager Fred Watts told advi-
sory board members. "This is a net
increase, based on CPI numbers, after
utilities and expenses are taken out."
Board members approved the mea-
sure unanimously. Now it goes to city
council for final approval.
Rental fees
Airport Manager Fred Watts is work-
ing to update master plans for airport
operations that will include lot
appraisals and whether renters should
be paying more than $204 a month to
live on the island. These reviews also
will look at other leaseholders of air-
port property, including aviation facili-
ties, T-hangars, a golf course and a
restaurant.
Venice's airport operates through
enterprise funds and does not receive
local tax dollars; All revenue comes
from renters using airport property

Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice closed
the $16.1 million deal to pur-
chase 146 acres along Laurel
Road late Friday. The charita-
ble organization has plans to'
turn tie site just east of
Interstate 75 and adjacent to
city limits into a workforce
housing community.
All that's left now is to
design what Venice's first
workforce housing commu-
nity will look like, which orga-
nizations will have a hand in
its development and how
much the homes will cost.
"We are one step closer to
building a neighborhood for
working families, and that's
what it's all about," GCCFV
president and CEO Teri


VRMC is launching $2.3
million worth of exterior
improvements to its hospital
along U.S. 41 Business on the
island. One part of that job is
placing ivory-colored stucco
with terra-cotta accents over
the 50-year-old brick that's
been in place since the hospi-
tal was built.
The hospital sits in the
Venetian Theme District.

Friday was day five of the
construction of the Habitat

home in South Venice:
Rushing to finish

until two in the morning
Friday in South.Venice.
The thumping of nails into
vinyl siding and the sounds of
a table saw could only be
heard amongst neighbor-
hood dogs barking past mid-
night.
Volunteers from the com-
munity worked mostly by
moonlight to continue the
building of the home.
Workers trekked through
the muddy yard and swatted


mosquitoes from their shins
in-between climbing ladders
and working together in the
race against time to complete
the home within 24 hours,
some putting in more than 12
hours of labor in one day.
Cabinets were installed into
the kitchen and bathrooms
overnight while the home
was primed for painting
inside.
Up with the sun
After the sun was up Friday
morning, Capt. John Fuller
from the Salvation Army
brought a van full of volun-
teers to begin sodding.

"I never believed

involved with Habitat.
Now I believe."
Eulis, whose
family will purchase
the newest Habitat
home after being
built in just five days


Landscapers arrived and
began planting and
mulching. The heat was
-almost unbearable, but the
dedicated volunteers kept on
task. The sun blared and not
even a breeze was present for
minor relief. Nurse Chrissy
Atwater from Venice Regional
Medical Center and Habitat
for HumanityVenice Area Inc.
Executive Director Judy
Wilcox handed out towels
soaked in cold water to cool
down workers.
Project Manager John
Olliver sat for a moment with
a cool towel on his neck after
hours in the heat and proudly
stated of one of his volun-
teers, Mike Niles, "He just
can't quit."
Niles is one of the nearly
100 skilled trade volunteers
putting in more than 50 hours
this week on the home.
Helping with the home this
week was "addicting," Niles
said. He enjoyed being part of
the camaraderie using his
expertise for a good cause.
Paint job
The home was coming
together on the final day of
the Blitz Build in spite of rain
delays earlier in the week. Just
after noon the doors of the
home were installed and the
painting inside started. The
counter tops were complete,
and the hours quickly passing
by were heavy on the minds
of workers. Finalizations were
being made to the air condi-
tioning, plumbing and elec-
tricity of the home.
The three bedroom, twvo
bath, one-car garage home
was complete by 4 p.m.
Friday. Dennis Myers, the
operations manager for
Sarasota County, was on site
to announce that the home
passed all final inspections.
A dedication ceremony
followed the completion of
the home. Brad Schuette,
president of Venice Area
Habitat, led the ceremony
and announced, "This is
something to celebrate."
Volunteers and donations
from community businesses
were thanked at the ceremony.
More than 50 members of the
community came out.to the
home to share in the exchange
of keys from Wilcox to Lisa,
Eulis and their son, Ben.
"I never believed there was
kindness in the world, till I got
involved with Habitat," Eulis
said tearfully "Now I believe."

Former nursing home to become townhouses


The proposal for nearly 2 acres on Nokomis
Avenue all hinges on a rezoning request to make
this land residential amid a sea of professional
offices.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


On the surface, In-Island
Development's proposal to
build 26 townhouses, a pool
and clubhouse at 437
Nokomis Ave. sounds like a
nice idea.
And then you drive
through the area and realize
nearly every neighboring
property is some type of
office or institutional use.
Convincing the city three-
story townhouses are a better
fit in this neighborhood than
the former nursing home will
be the job of developers.
Currently at the staff review
phase, the rezoning request
could appear before Venice
Planning Commission. by
Aug. 16.
"It's going to be a big
improvement for the neigh-
borhood," said Greg Roberts,
the attorney for In-Island
Development. "You're taking
an outdated building and
putting in new residences. ...
We feel that it's a change for
the better."
Slated for one of the more
visible parts of the island, the
proposal is to tear down the
facility that takes up 1.83
acres and basically replace an
entirecity block.

Capped at 35 feet
The rezoning would
require changing the city's
comprehensive plan because
the city has always viewed the
spot as being for office or


institutional uses. The
requested zoning RMF-4
- would allow a maximum
density of 18 living units per
acre, but the current proposal
is about 14 units per acre.
Initial staff concerns are
about the appropriateness of
residential housing in this
area and the impact on traffic
congestion. They also are
worried about height because
RMF-4 allows up to 45 feet. In
an interview, Roberts said the
developer would limit height
to 35 feet and comply with
the strict Venetian Theme
District standards for the
neighborhood.
Integrated Health Systems
closed its doors as a nursing
home in 2004, and the site
was purchased in February
for $1.8 million, according to
county property tax records.
Venice Art Center is across
the street to the north,
Wachovia bank to the south
and various offices on the
east and west borders. The
spot also is a couple of blocks
from the island Publix shop-
ping center.
For Roberts, the neighbor-
ing properties actually make
residential housing an even

better idea. People who live
there are within walking dis-
tance of the grocery store,
bank, library, art center and
medical offices.


"We feel that with a (nurs-
ing) home that was licensed
for 180 beds with staff,
employees, ancillary
providers, physicians that's


a lot of traffic," Roberts said.
"While if you have 26 units,
you're talking maybe 50 peo-
ple living there. That will gen-
erate less trips and have less


of an impact (on the neigh-
borhood)."

Council supports expansion of program


Architects, developers, contractors and others
will be consulted about possible changes. The
objective is to reach a consensus about art dis-
plays at privately financed projects.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Public art displays have
caught on over the past
12 years and become such
successful amenities at new
public buildings throughout
Sarasota County that
momentum is building to
include them in future non-
residential project plans sub-
mitted by private sector
developers.
Earlier this month, the
Sarasota Arts Council unani-
mously agreed to dialogue
with representatives from the
development community in
an attempt to build consen-
sus for expansion of the pub-
lic arts program into new
office and commercial cen-
ters.
"Many communities
around the United States
require developers to provide
public art," said Patricia
Caswell, the council's execu-
tive director. "The best
Florida programs are in
Broward County-Fort
Lauderdale and Dade
County-Miami."
While the. requirements
vary in communities that
support public art displays, a
typical financial commitment
is about 1 percent. Sarasota
County allocates .85 percent
from its capital improvement
budget for public art at new
and existing government
facilities.
On April 24, the county
commission agreed to pursue
an expansion of the public art
program if council represen-
tatives would engage in a
consensus-building effort

thing about the agency," Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato said. "We
have to comply with 272 pro-
fessional standards."'
Accreditation is the Holy
Grail of law enforcement.
The standards cover every
conceivable aspect of police
work, from how the agency
handles arrests to how it han-
dles evidence to how it com-
municates with the media.
In 2004, the Venice Police
Department was not reac-
credited because of problems
with its record-keeping. It is
still not reaccredited.
The accrediting body, the
Commission for Florida Law
Enforcement Accreditation,
goes over the agency with a
fine-toothed comb for three
days. The agency learns
whether it has been reaccred-
ited shortly thereafter.
The CFA was formed in
1993. It is composed of four
sheriffs, four chiefs and one
representative each from the
Association of Counties, the
League of Cities and the judi-
ciary.
The commission meets
quarterly to oversee the
accreditation program and to
officially accredit agencies
that have passed the rigorous
review process.
The sheriff's office was first
accredited in 1994, a year
after the CFA was formed.
Asked how he thinks the
SO will come through reac-
creditation this time,
Lesaltato said, "We are confi-
dent."

,with key members of the
development community,
and attempt to remove poli-
tics from the debate.
"The program has been so
successful that we would like
to see it continue, and per-
haps even expand, providing
there is community support,"
commission chairman Paul
Mercier stated in a June 7 let-
ter to Council President Dr.
Larry Thompson, Caswell
and other public art propo-
nents.
"Our mission is to create
an environment where arts
flourish," Caswell told the
Pelican Press. "Our job is
advocacy and we will do
everything we can to help.
Sarasota needs to demon-
strate it is the preeminent arts
community in Florida with its
public arts program."
Just how extensive a public
out-reach program is possible
with a handful of volunteers
and small paid staff remains
to be seen, but Caswell said'
the group would do its best to
submit a report for the coun-
ty commission's considera-
tion in the autumn.
New formula
Over the last 12 years, the
county has spent about
$500,000 from its capital
improvement project budget
to purchase art pieces for dis-
play at'new public buildings,,
such as branch libraries,
courthouses, administration
centers and other govern-
ment facilities.
The city of Sarasota goes a
step further and requires
downtown developers to dis-
play art works in a special


overlay zone known as the
"Community Redevelopment
Area." But the additional cost
for sculpture and other works
is not imposed on projects
outside the district.
While several county com-
missioners expressed a reluc-
tance to expand the arts pro-
gram, commissioner David
Mills said, "The city of
Sarasota has a public-private
requirement, and I think it
tremendously adds to the
community."
The county recently
changed its funding formula
for public art purchases so
enough money is generated
for works at both existing
public buildings and new
ones. It had previously been 1
percent of the budget for new
buildings only.
In addition to approving a
new funding formula, the
county commission recently
endorsed the purchase of
existing sculpture and art
items rather than just com-
missioning new pieces for
display at both new and exist-
ing government facilities.
A volunteer Committee for
Art in Public Places that over-
sees the selection process had
previously limited its choices
to new pieces. The tedious
process required a call to
thousands of artists whose
names appeared on an
approved list, plus interviews
with finalists.

Construction workers make a sink hole on North Warfield Road even bigger Saturday
morning in an attempt to locate'and repair a corroded 16-inch cast iron sewage force
main. The sink hole showed up late Friday next to Patches Restaurant on East Venice
Avenue and was cause by the deteriorating pipe, according to a city of Venice news
release. No interruption in sewage service was expected. Plans were to shut down the line
at 10 p.m. Saturday and have the line fixed by 3.a.m. Sunday, according to the work crew
supervisor. Patches Restaurant will be open during normal business hours, 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
Sunday, and additional parking is available in the neighboring shopping center lot.

THE "QUIET" DISEASE
Are dental checkups really necessary when your teeth are-not
bothering you? Absolutely! Even though the incidence of tooth decay
has dropped over recent years, periodontal (gum) disease has not. It
actually accounts for over 60% of teeth being lost. It starts without
your knowledge, causes no pain in the early stages, and at that time is
usually easy to treat. Catching it early saves not only the teeth, but
time and money. Sound teeth which are supported by bone and gums
involved with periodontal disease will eventually be lost. -
Early intervention in gum disease generally means cleaning off tartar
from the root surfaces. Only a dentist or hygienist can remove this
material. When root surface are involved, home oral hygiene alone
won't solve the problem. Bone will be lost and teeth will loosen.
Periodontitis is a quiet and destructive disease which can usually be
detected only by your dentist. By getting routine, periodic checkups,
you will not allow this to sneak up on you.

Fireworks law will be enforced


If it flies or goes boom, chances are it's illegal and
could get you in trouble with the law.


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office wants to
remind everyone that certain
types of fireworks are illegal.
As defined in Florida
Statutes Chapter 791, illegal
fireworks means any com-
bustible or explosive compo-
sition or substance, or combi-
nation of substances, or any
article prepared for the pur-
pose of producing a visible or
audible effect by combustion,
explosion, deflagration or
detonation.
The term includes blank
cartridges and toy cannons in
which explosives are used,
the type of balloons that
require fire underneath to
propel them, firecrackers, tor-
pedoes, skyrockets, roman
candles and any fireworks
containing any explosives or
flammable compound or any
tablets or other device con-
taining any explosive sub-
stance.
Deputies from the sheriff's
office will enhance the
enforcement of these laws to
help ensure that everyone has
a safe Fourth of July.

If you must light up
The Sarasota County Fire
Department wants to ensure
that all residents have a safe
and enjoyable holiday week-
end by providing these
important safety tips on fire-
works, barbecue and water
safety.
Fireworks: Fire Chief Brian
'Gorski encourages residents
to attend public fireworks dis-
plays in lieu of setting off their
own fireworks.
"Many fireworks are no
longer legal," Gorski said. 'A


list of fireworks that are
approved by the Florida
Division of State Fire Marshal
can be found at fldfs.com
/SFM/sparklerindex.htm."
Gorski added that even.
sparklers require adult super-
vision and should be discard-
ed into a bucket df water.
When using sparklers, keep
distance between yourself
and other people and use
them in an open area free
from any objects that could
ignite from the sparks.
Sparklers bur very hot and
can cause severe burns and
start fires very easily.
Each year, Independence
Day fireworks cause more
outdoor fires in the United
States than all other causes of
outdoor fires combined. In
2003, more than 9,300 people
were treated at hospital emer-
gency rooms for fireworks-
related injuries.
Burns were the leading
type of fireworks injury (63
percent). Contusions and lac-
erations were second (18 per-
cent), and were equal in share
to burns when the injury was
to, any part of the head and
face, including the eye. Hands
or fingers accounted for 26


FIREWORKS DISPLAY IN VENICE
The city of Venice will celebrate Independence Day with a fire-
works display Monday, July 4, shortly after sunset around 9 p.m.
The fireworks will be shot from the South Jetty, but will be visible
from spots along area beaches, as well as other places in the com-
munity.
The fireworks show will be produced by Garden State
Fireworks, a federally licensed company, which will use a new elec-
tronic system to fire the materiel.
The South Jetty will be closed all day Monday. The part of the
park west of the hot dog stand will be closed Sunday, as well.
Tarpon Center Drive will be closed to all traffic, except those going
to a particular address on the street. from 6-10 p.m.
No boat traffic will be allowed to pass through the jetties,
between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway, begin-
ning around 9 p.m. until the fireworks display is finished. Boaters
in the gulf must be at least 800 feet away from the jetties during
the display.
Venice City Hall will be closed Monday July 4, in observance of
Independence Day.
Solid waste, recycling and yard waste normally collected on
Monday will be picked up Thursday, July 7.


percent of body injuries. In 20
percent of the cases, the eye
was involved. Other parts of
the face or head accounted
for 17 percent of injuries.
Pre-teens and teenagers
face the highest risk of fire-
works injuries. In 2003, 60
percent of people injured by
fireworks were under the age

of 20, with 45 percent of the
injuries incurred by those
under the age of 15. The high-
est injury rate related to pop-
ulation was for ages 5 to 9,


'TOW TO GO'JULY FOURTH WEEKEND
AAA Auto Club South and Budweiser are including the Fourth
of July weekend in its "Tow to Go" program, which provides a free
ride home and tow to people who may have had too much to
drink.
The program started six years ago, providing rides from the
Thanksgiving to New Year's Day holiday season. AAA estimates
that almost 5,000 potential drunken drivers have been kept off
the road since the program began.
This year, 'Tow to Go." has expanded to include St. Patrick's
Day, Cinco de Mayo, Halloween, and the SuperBowl, Memorial
Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends.For a free ride home,
call (8001 AAA-HELP 1222-4357.)


with 8.9 times the risk for the
entire population.
Scooter, bike and pedestri-
an safety: Scooter, bikes,
inline skates and skateboards
are associated with numer-
ous injuries yearly..
Wearing a properly fitted
helmet will prevent a head
injury. Riders are advised to
wear a comfortable, properly
fitted helmet bearing the
label of an independent test-
ing lab. The helmet should sit
level on top of the head and
not rock in any direction.
Always fasten the safety strap,
and ride scooters and bikes
on smooth, paved surfaces
and only during daylight
hours.
Barbecue safety: In 2001,
gas and charcoal grills caused
1,000 structure fires and 3,400
outdoor fires in or on home
properties, resulting in a
combined direct property
loss of $19 million dollars,
according to the National Fire
Protection Agency.
Position the grill away


from siding, deek railings and
out from under eaves and
overhanging branches.. Place
the grill a safe distance from
lawn games, play areas and
foot traffic, declare a three-
foot "safe zone" around the
grill and periodically remove
grease or fat buildup in trays
below the grill so it cannot be
ignited and cause a fire.
If you are using propane,.
check the propane cylinder
hose first for leaks before
using it. A light soap and
water solution applied to the
hose will quickly reveal
escaping propane by releas-
ing bubbles. .
According to Gorski, char-
coal grills have a higher risk of
death due to fire or unvented
carbon monoxide than gas
grills. Most of these deaths do
not involve fire.
Water safety: Swim only in
approved areas, and super-


SUN GRAPHIC
vise children near water at all
times. Teach children to
swim. Never dive into the
water. When boating, jet-ski-
ing, tubing or water-skiing,
always wear a U.S. Coast
Guard-approved personal
flotation device.
Be sure to extinguish all
smoking materials and shut
down motors, fans and heat-
ing devices before fueling a
boat. In case of a spill, wipe
up fuel immediately and
check the bilge for fuel leak-
age and odors. After fueling
and before starting the boat's
motor, ventilate with the
blower for at least four min-
utes.
Gorski said adhering to these
simple safety tips will prevent
injury or loss of property.

tion, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-

HOSPITAL from page 1A

Despite being within the Venetian Theme District, Venice Regional Medical Center's $2.3 million worth of exterior improvement
will not require Architectural Review Board approval.


much as a window, door or a
fence have to be granted
approval from the seven citi-
zens serving on ARB.

The exception
Any project that requires a
building permit must meet
ARE standards, according to
city ordinances, and VRMC
has a building permit appli-
cation awaiting approval to
do the stucco job as well as
install decorative facades-
around the windows.
But there is an exception in
this case, according to City
Attorney Wayne. Hall, who
handles ARB matters. The
themed district guidelines
book states that "adding or
changing stucco and color"


does not require approval if it
conforms with previously
approved colors.
'A building permit for exte-
rior work would, technically,
require board approval, but
we normally don't get
involved when it's a change in
stucco," Hall said.
The guidelines remain
open to interpretation, how-
ever, especially when it's
$814,000 worth of stucco that
requires a building permit at
one of the most visible struc-
tures in all ofVenice.
Permits have not been
issued for the stucco job that
VRMC hopes to start within
the next couple of weeks.
Building Department Direc-
tor Hans Behrens was out of


town and has yet to sign off
on the job.
Michael Curran, VRMC
chief operating officer, has.
been told by the city the pro-
ject does not require ARB
approval.
Even if it did, Curran said-
the hospital would be willing
to get it in an effort to prove
the company's desire to fit in
with the rest of Venice.
Health Management
Associates purchased the
hospital from Bon Secours in
February.
"We do want to do every-
thing we can to be part of the
Venetian Theme District we
reside in," Curran said. "That
was our intention from the
beginning."


Often criticized
ARB has been criticize
the past year by residents a
city officials for enforci
Northern Italian Renaissan
standards too strictly. Soi
property owners have col
plained about construct
costs being driven up, wh
others say what should

building into compliance.
If the ARB did review t
stucco project, that could

window styles, door siz
roof, canopies and more.
The hospital was bu
more than 30 years beft


ARB rules were created.
Residential homes are
exempt, but all most other
structures must comply with
the Historic Theme and
Venetian Theme districts that
cover all of downtown and
extend south along the west-
ern side of U.S. 41 Business to
the hospital.
Taking time off work and
going in front of the board is
not required if the job costs
less than $2,500. In those
cases, city staff can issue
approval.
,ARB chair Mary Horlick is
happy to see the hospital
finally coming into compli-
ance, though she is wonder-

"My personal opinion is, it
is a change, and because it is a
change, it probably should
come before us to make sure
it's within our guidelines,"
Horlick said. "Other than that,
we'll have to let Hans
(Behrens) and Wayne (Hall)
interpret it."

A growing North Venice
North Venice has become
one of the fastest growing
areas in the city, with a poten-
tial 3,000 homes, up to three
retail centers, a 20-screen
movie theater and a pair of
growing industrial-based
employment centers all of
this on the eastern side of -75
along Laurel Road.
Just more than three years
ago, Laurel was just a two-
lane dirt road that connected
to the county landfill access
road, several businesses and
undeveloped land.
GCCFV has not said how
many homes will be built on
the site.
The developer who assist-
ed the organization's land
purchase, Wayne Ruben of
Ruben-Holland develop-
ment, speculates that more
than 500 homes could be
built.
"It's a very exciting time for
the foundation and the com-
munity," Floyd said after clos-
ing the deal. "All in all, it's a
very good day for the com-
munity.".
Much of the planning
process still needs to be
resolved.
Other than the meetings to
gather public input, GCCFV


also must decide whether or
not it wants to annex into city
limits and field at least four
requests by charitable organi-
zations asking for land dona-
tions. Habitat for Humanity
Venice Area Inc. has asked for
15 percent of the land just
more than 20 acres to be
donated for construction of
future Habitat homes, Habitat
Executive Director JudyWilcox
said earlier this week.'
No decision on any of the
donation requests has been
made, Hansen said in an ear-
lier interview.

Thanks to SMH
Hansen made sure to cred-
it Sarasota Memorial Hospital
with setting upthe deal after
it decided against buying the
land. Instead, the public hos-
pital plans to close next week
on 66 acres on the western
side of 1-75 along Laurel Road
to build an outpatient med-
ical facility.
Once SMH passed on this
146 acres, it gave GCCFV the
rights to purchase the land
from owner Mark Caithness.
According to the county prop-
erty appraiser Web. site,
Caithness bought the land in
December 2004 for $7.6 mil-
lion.


"It was very significant
what (Sarasota M memorial)
did," Hansen said. "It
would've been easier for
them not to have done that,


and to have just moved on to
another piece of property. ...
The'assignment of the con-
tract (to GCCFV) would've
been the most difficult part."

and money from the state
and federal transportation
departments.
Only the rent from T-
hangars generates more
money for the airport's opera-
tion than the $230,000 from
the mobile home park.
According to city documents,
T-hangars brought in about
$341,000 last year.
Among all the leaseholders,
the next closest is Venice Golf
Association and its $202,000 in
rent, followed by Sharky's at
$81,000, Triple Diamond
parcels A, C, D at $79,000 and
Holiday Condominiums at
$61,000. The owners of
Sharky's restaurant actually,
paid more than $250,000 to
the city last year, but two-
thirds of that goes into the
Venice Fishing Pier fund.
Not the first increase
Lot rent at the city-owned
park was only $30 in 1972
when it was created. Since
1986, the rent has more than
doubled, to its current
amount.
Renters have seen increas-
es of between $4 and $14
every year since 1991. The city
increased rent each year from
1991-93, and then the Federal
Aviation Administration
stepped in with an audit that
forced increases over the
course of eight years.
The pending audit and
appraisal at the mobile home
park could raise the rent even
more, bring it in line with rent
at neighboring mobile home
parks.
T-hangars rents also are
going up. The airport only


charged $60 per month in
1977 when it started them,
and the airport is asking
council to approve charging
$245 per month. This would
be the first T-hangar increase
since 2001, when the rate was
set at $225, according to city
records.
Special event fees
Board members also
passed a motion asking city
council to universally apply
special event fees to organiza-
tions using the airport festival
grounds.
No specifics were offered
as to which groups were
being exempt from fees.
"There is inconsistency, so
this board needs to make a
recommendation to council
that all fees are uniform,"
board chair Paul Hallowell
said.
To his knowledge, city spe-
cial events coordinator Ed
Hoefert said in an interview
that charges have always
been required of any group
using the airport festival
grounds. The annual events,
like Italian Feast and Venice-
Nokomis Area: Rotary Art
Festival, and any others all
pay the $600 per day fee and
$300 fee on set-up and tear-
down days.
Hoefert speculates some
people could be confusing
events happening on airport-
owned land that is rented by
someone else. For example,
the annual Shark's Tooth
Festival is .on Venice Golf
Association-rented land, so
there is no special event fee
paid to the city.

Americans, Nationals cruise in 9-10 All Stars


The two teams will
play each other in a
showdown Monday
morning at Twin Lakes.
BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

There's nothing but good
news for Venice Little League
in the District 16 All-Star 9-10
year old Tournament.
Both Venice American and
Venice National won their
pool games Friday and
Saturday at Twin Lakes Park
in east Sarasota to clinch
spots in the championship
bracket.
They are each 2-0 while
Sarasota Florida and East
Central are 0-2.
American will play
National at 9 a.m. Monday.
Having already clinched
bracket play spots will take
some of the drama away from
the local showdown, but
bragging rights will still be on
the line.
American manager Jeff
Lightner and National man-
ager Terry Tritcshler said they
would save their top arms for
bracket play.
Bracket play begins at 5:30
p.m. Tuesday. It will involve
the two Venice teams from
Pool 2 and the top two teams
from Pool 1.
Following is a breakdown
of each.team's games Friday
and Saturday.
Venice National
The Nats clinched a brack-
et playoff spot Saturdaywith
a miracle four-run rally in the
bottom of the sixth inning.
Brett Smith's two-out, two-
strike single to right powered
National to a 5-4 victory over
stunned East Central
.Saasota.
"This is my ninth A.U-Star
team, and I've never been

down by three runs and come
back to win in our last at bat,"
Tritschler said. "It's determi-
nation from the kids and a lit-
tle luck."
National trailed 4-1 and
only had mustered two hits
heading into the bottom of
the sixth.
Zakary Harman hit a sacri-
fice fly to center field to draw
the score to 4-2. Joshua
Grubbs was Mr. Clutch with a
tworout, two-run double over
the centerfielder's head to tie
the score -4-4. Smith then
punch a single to right to
plate the winning run.


Tyler Atwell of Venice National 9-10 year-olds scores on a pass
ball Friday night.


"The umpire was calling
low and outside," Tritschler
said. "He went with it the
other way. They were playing
back because he had hit the
ball hard earlier in the game.
It dropped in."
Smith, who was 3-for-4 at
the plate for the game, scored
the Nats first run in the first
inning. He singled, stole sec-
ond and third and came
around on an error.
Tyler Atwell was the win-
ning pitcher. He relieved Nick
Longhi hi the third and threw
effectively.
And now. it's National vs.
American, round !.
"It was an emotional win,"
Tritschler said. "Now we're
both in the bracket. We could
end up seeing each other four
times. This will be for brag-
ging rights, but whoever
loses, it won't be the end of
the world. They'll still be
alive."
National opened pool play
Friday night by putting an 11-
2 whipping on Sarasota
Florida.
Smith was in complete
control, firing a two-hitter
and striking out 11. He was 3-
for-3 at the plate, Longhi was
4-for-3. Atwell had two hits
and ;Cooper Hammond
added a hit.
Venice American
American cruised to victo-


Trailing 2-0, Rhett Dinka
got American started with an
RBI double. He scored when
Jared Zech's fly ball to right
was mishandled to make it 2-
2. Flynn Angley walked and
both runners moved up on a
wild pitch. Zech scored the
go-ahead run on another wild
pitch.
Three more in the fifth
gave pitcher Tyler Shambora
a safe pad. Joey Cavallaro sin-
gled and Colton Lightner
reached on an error. Dinka
then delivered another dou-
ble to score both runners. He
came around when Sarasota
Florida threw the ball around
wildly.
Lightner put the icing on
the cake with a three-run
homer to left. The blast came
during a sudden cloudburst.
"We started hitting the
fourth inning," manager Jeff
Lightner said. "It took us a
while to get going. (Friday)
night we won by a big margin
and maybe thought it was
going to be easy."
Lightner finished the game
going 3-for-4. Cavallaro and
Dinka had two hits each.
Shambora and Joey Buncik
also had hits.
Dinka converted a double
play at second base.

Although set. back by
Saturday's 10-4 loss to
Sarasota Florida, the Venice
American 11-12 year-old All-
Stars still have a pulse in the
District 16 Little League
Tournament.
The Venice National 11-12
year-olds' chances are slim

es at Twin Lakes Park in east
Saras9ta.
American will play
National at 11 a.m. Monday.
It's a must-win game for
American if it is to continue in
the championship bracket
tournament, which begins
Tuesday.

American is hoping to
sneak in with a win over

over American.

OUR VIEW



Words of freedom to remember and live by


E xcerpts from the Declaration of
Independence of the 13 colonies, in
Congress, July 4, 1776:
When in the course of human events, it
becomes necessary for one people to dis-
solve the political bands which have con-
nected them with another, and to assume
among the powers of the earth, the separate
and equal station to which the laws of nature
and of nature's God entitle them, a decent
respect to the opinions of mankind requires
that they should declare the causes which
impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident,'
that all men are created equal, that they are
endowed by their creator with certain
unalienable rights, that among these are life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
That to secure these rights, governments
are instituted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed.


That whenever any form of government
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the
right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and
to institute new government, laying its foun-
dation on such principles and organizing its
powers in such form, as to them shall seem
most likely to effect their safety and happi-
ness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that govern-
ments long established should not be
changed for light and transient causes; and
accordingly all experience hath shewn, that
mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves
by abolishing the forms to which they are
accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same
object evinces a design to reduce them
under absolute despotism, it is their right, it
is their duty, to throw off such government,


and to provide new guards for their future
security.
Such has been the patient sufferance of
these colonies; and such is now the necessity
which constrains them to alter their former
systems of government. The history of the
present king of Great Britain (George III) is a
history of repeated injuries and usurpations,
all having in direct object the establishment
of an absolute tyranny over these states.
*****
In every stage of these oppressions we
have petitioned for redress in the most hum-
ble terms; our repeated petitions have been
answered only by repeated injury. A prince
whose character is thus marked by every act
which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the
ruler of a free people.

We, therefore, the representatives of the
United States of America, in general con-


gress, assembled, appealing to the supreme
judge of the world for the rectitude of our
intentions, do, in the name, and by the
authority of the good people of these
colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that
these united colonies are, and of right ought
to be free and independent states; that they
are absolved from all allegiance to the
British crown, and that all political connec-
tion between them and the state of Great
Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved;
and that as free and Independenlt states,
they have full power to levy war, conclude
peace, contract alliances, establish com-
merce, and to do all other acts and things
which independent states may of right do.
And for the support of this Declaration, with
a firm reliance on the protection of divine
providence, we mutually pledge to each
other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred
honor.


Vision and passion


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

There is no doubt at all that
Dr. Gary Norris, superinten-
dent of schools, has a vision
for the Sarasota County
School system.
A week or so ago. Bob
Mudge and I spoke with him
and Don Hay, who is on the
oversight committee, and we
shared our feelings about the
district and the challenges
ahead, including the possibil-
ity of an extension of the one
extra mill in property tax that
goes to the schools.
It certainly is clear that Dr.
Norris has wonderful ideas
for our district. He has many
plans he will more formally
unveil this month, but they
center on a few key elements.
For one, he wants to great-
ly expand the technical
school options available to
our children. Currently SCTI
is the only offering and, as
. many potential students have
found out, many of the best
classes are full. He wants not
only another technical center
in the south but more oppor-
tunities within the *high.
schools.
He wants to develop a
unique system to reward
teachers by paying an extra
$5,000 a year to those who
meet established criteria
measuring the best teachers.
Currently the district gives
out $300,000 a year to those
that meet some special crite-
ria.
He wants to increase the
school day, which would also
give the teachers more pay.
He said the number of hours
our students are exposed to
education is less than the
most successful higher-level
areas.
He doesn't want just what
we can get by with. We should
be glad he feels that way.
We questioned him about
why we hadn't seen any
results so far and he said it
takes five years to see any
improvement. We wondered
why school grades would slip
after we had spent that much
more money. There is no
rationale behind that.
We mentioned that
Charlotte County, which lost
seven schools to Hurricane
Charley, saw test scores and
school grades go up.
We wondered why the
public hasn't gotten feedback
from the oversight commit-
tee. They said they had
reported to the board early in
the year. We thought the peo-
ple were the ones who should
have got that, through news
releases.
We are concerned that the


problem is what they want
and what the people want
may be at odds. The people
expected oversight to report
to them and to be fighting for
them. When asked what they
had done to reduce costs,
generally there were almost
no specifics.
They said the administra-
tion of this district was found
to be among the most effi-
cient in the state. They didn't
have statistics on that. We
mentioned some people who
were "kicked upstairs," which
added to costs. We gave some
specifics and they said they
were all doing good jobs.
Dr. Norris' proposal will,
cost a lot more than we are,
already pa.ing. Asked if they
had tried to do anything that
could help with the way the
state burdens our taxpayers,
they said they hadn't. We
pointed out that our taxpay-
ers are at the top in the state
in' noney paid into the
schools, and they shouldn't
be if we are doing our job
right. Of course, our state sen-
ator and representatives play
an important part in that.
Dr. Norris said that many
teachers would have to be cut
if we don't renew the tax.
What we tried to point out
was the taxpayers were glad
to help in 2002, but in return
we expected a hard effort to
make renewal unnecessary,
or at least not for the same
amount. The impression we
received is that it was very
necessary and they were pro-
ceeding accordingly.
What they all need to know
is taxpayers have the ability to
*show them they don't like
being overlooked and taken
for granted.
There is no question that
they have vision and they are
passionate about being the
best, but it just won't make a
difference if in the process the,
taxpayer is taken for granted.

By's Crack: We- sold
wheat to Russia and the,
price doubled. We sold soy
beans to Russia and the
price doubled. Maybe we
should try to sell them
some stock.


We got a lot of response
from changing our TV book.
There were many complaints
and many suggestions on
how to improve.
We have met with our new
supplier and we will be
implementing a lot of those
changes, not in today's book
but in next week's; and then
there are several that we are
going to do some testing on.
We still are getting your
thoughts.
Several people either said.
"why fix something that isn't
broke" or "you made it too
confusing." That is under-
standable, as we did go to a
new configuration and any
change is disturbing. It will:

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Venice got too old for us to stick around


Editor:
After 15 years of living inVenice, we left. Part of the reason is
the attitude toward young people.
When I say young I am talking about anyone who is young
at heart too. My husband and I are in our mid 50s and after
retiring we decided to leave.
The attitude down there is so old and we just got tired of it.
Is there a line that one crosses at a certain age that you become
mean and miserable?
Eventually they will push all the young people out of the
Venice area. Then who will wait on them at a restaurant or
check them out at the grocery store or department store?
We raised four children down there and they couldn't wait to
get to Sarasota orTampa. I don't blame them. Itjust amazes me
the mindset that people have when it comes to young people.
Why don't they put a ban on drivers over 65 or 70. God
knows that they have killed or maimed more people than a
skateboard.
Instead of telling people to abide by rules, and punishing
them if they don't, they just eliminate the problem. It is just like
having someone step out into the path of an oncoming car,
.scream and say the car didn't stop. It hit me.
When do we as well start taking responsibility for watching
out where we are going?

Why punish the
truth tellers?

Editor:
It is a sad day in a democ-
racywhen a messenger is per-
secuted for speaking the
truth. In my opinion, this is
what happened to Sen.
Durbin, whose sole "crime"
was to react to a disturbing
FBI memo describing mal-
treatment of detainees at
Guantanamo, saying it
reminded him of scenes in a


Soviet gulag or Nazi camps
during World War II.
The FBI memo the senator
was outraged about reports
on a prisoner being kept
chained on the floor in a fetal
position for more than 24
hours without access to food
or water and lying in his own
excrement. The FBI agents
felt troubled by what they wit-
nessed, since it went against
their own code of conduct
and wrote memos to their
superiors.


Sen. Durbin had learned
about this and felt outraged
treatment such as this was
apparently going on without
the knowledge of Congress or
of the American people.
This incident reveals a sad
state of affairs and political
climate when a representa-
tive of the people speaks the
truth and then is chastised for
it. Isn't it hypocrisy when our
leaders hold others account-
able for torture and dismiss
similar treatment when it
happens on our side? A
servile press seems to keep
backing those in power.
Where is the public out-
rage to have these things hap-
pen in our name?
I believe when we discount
even one person's humanity,
we lose part of our own.

Goodbye, Fifth
Amendment

Editor:
The Supreme Court of The
United States of America, the
last bastion of sanity, reason
and the ultimate defender of
the Constitution, struck a
decisive blow against free-
dom and the bedrock of our
nation personal property.
In a 5-4 decision the Court
has' ignored the Fifth
Amendment and has sanc-
tioned the government's abil-


ity to run roughshod over cit-
izens. All this is done not for
the public well-being but
rather the greed of politicians
and their sponsors.
It is time to reevaluate the
people representing the tax-
paying citizen.

Radicals still living
off public charity

Editor:
I am writing of the recent
article on Sunset Hall in Los
Angeles, Calif., which is a
retirement community for
the free-thinking radical
elderly, that is occupied by 25
residents, ages 50-101 who
live there comfortably for
free.
These people prefer to
continue their political and
radical ways and have partici-
pated in a 2003 documentary
named "Sunset Story" now
being shown around the
country, to possibly cause fur-
ther unrest in our country,
although it has been the resi-
dents in this country that
allow them to continue their
ways.

their progressive (radical)
ways. One of them is wheel-

If you want gated, go elsewhere

Wannabes. To the gated-community wannabes: You come
to South Venice, buy a cheap lot, put up a home and then want
the whole area to be somewhat of a gated community and have
all the codes enforced and the area pristine. But lo and behold,
Sarasota County does not take care of its end of the upkeep
with the roads and ditches. You wannabes want the people
who have inhabited South Venice to suddenly upgrade to the
lifestyle of a small number of those in the South Venice Civic
Association who wish it were a gated community. This is a
workingman's homeland. You should all go to a gated commu-

Sad. I'm calling in refer-
ence to the lack of activities
for our youth in Venice. I'm 70
and I look around at all of
these young people and I feel
so bad. There really is noth-
ing, not much other than the
beach and bicycle riding. I
recently had occasion to call
the YMCA to check about
joining and I was shocked: for
a family of four it's almost
$600 a year. That's a heck of a
lot of money for people who
have very little money. I was
of the opinion that the YMCA
was subsidized by the taxpay-
ers. The lady I spoke to said,
"Well, it's going up." We older
people tell kids to go out and
make their own fun. That's all
well and good, but if you have
very, very limited funds -
even to get to the beach you
have to have a car or your par-
ents have to drive you. It's a
situation that's really sad.
Number, please. I'm calling
to find out if there is a num-
ber that can be called to
report parents who leave their
children, from 8 to 11 years
old, at home by themselves all


day during the summer and
expect their neighbors to
watch them without asking.
EDITOR'S NOTE: You can discuss
your concerns with the Department
of Children and Families, 482-5922.
Welcome to him. Shame on
you for putting a picture of
that young man on the front
page of the paper. Venice
doesn't need his type; Sarasota
is welcome to him. Why does-
n't he get out and do some ser-
vice for the city, such as help
clean up parks or some other
area of the city that could be
improved, instead of feeling so
sorry for himself? He will be
the type that wants the gov-
ernment to be supporting him
in a few years. Give the young
people who do good in the city
some credit.

years and I've really begun to

here at all, let alone enforce-

Ohio, their code enforcement
department is putting the
notice of violation on a 3-by-5
card and posting it on the
property for all to see, I guess
to shame the violator into
cleaning up the property and
to let the taxpayers know
code enforcement is at least
trying to do their job. Maybe
that's what we need to do here
in South Venice. So many
people don't care about their
property, don't care about
their neighbors and are sit-
ting on gold mines right down
the street from the Gulf of
Mexico and they can't get off
their butts and mow the lawn
or trim the weeds around the
house. I think this is a good
idea. It would probably help
shame people into taking
care of their property. It
seems to have worked in

It takes an awful lot of
money to support a home of
the type this article describes,
and it does make me wonder


just who are the people that
support a place of this
expense.
Did they make this money
in our country, living much as
or much better than the aver-
age American citizen, and still
give individuals like this a
comfortable last few years?

just take a little adjusting to.
Many of your suggestions
had to do with readability.
We worked hard in the redo
to make the type more read-
able, but a few felt it was
harder to read. On reexamin-
ing a couple of elements we
realized that could be the
case and are changing them.
However, most of the type is
bigger.
We will be adding more
movies and changing some
of the headers, changing the
front a little and some mak-
ing type enhancements.
The biggest reason we
changed was that we were
getting a lot of mistakes in
the book that were driving
many of you crazy. We could
not stand the inaccuracies.
Since those come from the
supplier, we felt we had to
make a change, and this sup-
plier, we feel, also is easier to
work with and offered lots of
ways to improve.
Sometimes good things
take a little while, and we all
know it is hard to adjust to
change. But we think in the
end this will be a much bet-
ter book.

I was excited to see that the
old gas station has been torn
down on comer of Turin and
Business 41. What an eyesore
that was.

After I mentioned the rate
increase at the YMCA, they
told me that this is the first
increase in four years and
they continue to be the low-
est-priced Y around.

A wine tasting with good
food is being put on by

from all over the world.
Richard, a wine master at

16. Tickets are available at
Sharky's and Venice Wine

-Today's ism: He who dies
with the most toys is,
nonetheless, dead.

This weekend has been the
big reunion for all classes of
Venice High and Nokomis-
Venice High School, with lots
of memories being shared
yesterday at Centennial Park.
At that event and today at
various locations you may see
members of Sertoma shaking
cans or jugs getting donations
so we can have great fire-
works.
They will even sell a blink-
ing star for $5. Sertoma has
done this for many years with
the help of the city.
They could use your con-
tribution to help celebrate
our freedoms and the great
country we enjoy. Send your
donation to Sertoma Club of
Venice, EO. Box 621, Venice,
34284.

It is interesting to note that
Maria Sharapova, the tennis
star, once lived in Venice for a
couple of years, in her first


years of training at Bollettieri.
She then transferred to live in
Bradenton and has gone on
to great stardom, probably
inspired by her time in
Venice.

Thanks to Mick Gardner,
who brought me some inter-
esting newspapers from the
trip he and wife Adele to Lake
Tahoe. He brought me the
Tahoe News, which had great
ad design and, curiously, "The
Datebook Big Pink and Proud
Issue" a gay publication print-
ed on pink paper. It seemed
rather worn to me.
Beryl Hill, a very long time
customer of ours dating back
to the 50s, brought in The
Independent, which, it was
pointed out, was nothing but
independent. It did have
great color printing.

Stormwater project on St. Armands
Key is set to begin this month
A much-anticipated, $5 million construction project to alleviate
structure and street flooding on St. Armands Key will begin this
month. The St. Armands Stormwater Improvement Project, which is
expected to take up to 16 months to complete, is a cooperative effort
of Sarasota County and the City of Sarasota, along with several other
local, state and regional funding partners.
St. Armands has experienced some of the most chronic flooding in
Sarasota County. The construction of four new pump stations and
two new emergency generators are expected to prevent structure
flooding during rains up to eight inches over the course of 24 hours,
and street flooding during rains up to 2.55 inches over the course of
one hour.
The work will cause occasional lane and road closures, but to
minimize disruption, only two areas will be under construction at any
one time.
Funding will come from a combination of grants or contributions
from the City of Sarasota, the Florida Departnent of Transportation,
Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization, the'Florida
Department of Environmental Protection, Sarasota County and the
Town of Longboat Key.

LOOKING FOR REGULAR INCOME?
CONSIDER BONDS.
By staggering your bond investments, you can receive
a monthly interest check instead of one check every
six months. You'll get a regular income stream, which
makes your overall planning much easier. Call me to
find out more about monthly bond interest checks.
Investors should keep in mind that as interest rates
rise existing bond prices of already-outstanding fixed-
income securities tend to fall. Long-term bonds are
generally more exposed to interest rate risk than
short-term bonds.

This completely.remodeled

The clients' architectural friend '
suggested they introduce an angle
wall and tuck a bath and small guest
bedroom behind it. This concept and
the space planning for the entire
condo allowed for the best possible

decide what to do with the structural

In the aftermath ofHurri-

persuasive demonstration of the most effective and durable
roofing in the industry. Advanced Roofing Service's steel-tile
roofs withstood Charley's fury.
"We had a near zero failure rate with our steel roofs during

According to the National Roofing Contractors Association,
sales of steel-tile roofing products have been climbing over the

area homes and businesses continues to be reinstalled without
substantial code changes. Tile roofs are being installed just as
they were before the storms. There was a near 100 percent
failure of tile roofing after Charley and nobody's talking about
it."
Steel-tile roofing is the high-tech answer to the need for
durable, fire-resistant, lightweight roofing that looks at home on
a house.
Priced competitively with concrete tiles, metal tiles have the
appearance of a conventional, tile roof.
"Metal roofing is comparable in price with tile roofing, but
out product provides a 50-year warranty," said DavidVansant,
general manager of Advanced Roofing & Sheetmetal. "Steel lasts
longer, is more cost effective and defends against the forces of
nature. I believe steel is definitely the best choice in tile roofing
systems.
SAccording to FEMA Hurricane Recovery Advisory three,
issued in November 2004, "tile roofs are very vulnerable to
breakage from wind-born debris (missiles). Even when well
attached, they can be easily broken by missiles. If a tile is
broken, debris from a single tile can impact other tiles on the
roof, which can lead to a progressive cascading failure. In
addition, tile missiles can be blown a considerable distance and
a substantial number have sufficient energy to penetrate
shutters and glazing, and potentially cause injury. Where the
basic wind speed is equal to or greater than 110 mph (three-
second peak gust), the wind-born debris issue is of greater
concern than in lower wind-speed regions. Note: There are
currently no testing standards requiring roof tile systems to be
debris impact resistant.
Advanced Roofing & Sheetmetal has been in continuous
operation in Southwest Florida since 1980. Based in Fort Myers,
Fla., it is the largest installer of Gerard roofing in the United
States. Gerard has been a metal-roof manufacturer sinde 1971
that produces tiles made of galvalume steel, treated with
corrosion inhibitors and covered in crushed stone. Advanced
Roofing & Sheetmetal employs 110 people and they have the
capacity to install more than 25,000 square feet of steel tile per
week.

Sunday, July 3, 2005 The A Sun


VeIe Godoie Su Pae6D/II


Guests can have cocktails in the "corner pocket" bar.


A room just




for fun




and games


with a focus on fun.
The full-sized, red-
felted billiard table
sets the theme reflect-
ed in the drapes, furniture, and
artwork. Circles and dots,
boldly accented with black,
frame the room in primary
colors distinctly contrasted
with neutrals.
The space is both intimate
with retro cafe style chrome


legged tables and white, mint
and red leather stools, ready to
host the party crowd. The bold
red in the wainscoting warms
the muted toned floor, which
easily transforms into a dance
spot complete with jukebox
music.
A unique corner bar with
oversized contrast panels is
conveniently located for serv-
ing drinks to either few guests
or a large party. Cocktails, in


stainless steel accessories, stir
up a fifties feeling. The fire-
place and mantle match the
bar and walls, accented with a
white chair rail and white
baseboards. Playful billiard
ball artwork serves to remind
the players to concentrate on
staying behind the eight ball.

BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

This Independence Day will be the first real cele-
bration of freedom for many new citizens. Three
people from different countries have recently
decided to make Venice their permanent home.
Remi Ouzai, stylist, Jon Marcus Salon
Remi just got his citizenship on Flag Day, June 14.
He is originally from Algeria.
"It's a baby country. It just got its independence
in the '60s. It's a country of different cultures, differ-
ent people. It was under French colonial rule for a
long time. Right now the economy is booming, I
guess, because of oil. There's a lot of corruption like
everywhere else."
Ouzai is now a hardworking United States citi-
,zen. The thing he likes best about being a citizen is
the contributions he can make
"I really have a love for this country because I get

to help build it. I make the country beautiful I
make the people beautiful," Ouzai said.
His belief in having a hard-working ethic is part
of what makes him a model citizen. You have to
work.
"You have to take some responsibility. You don't
just get your citizenship to sit around. There is no
free lunch," Ouzai said.
His. first official July 4 will be one to remember.
"I feel like I'm in the'same boat," he said.
His decision to become ahair stylist cameto him
while he was in NewYork City. It was a small way in
which he could make a difference. Before he had
tried many things like catering and he went to
school for tourism, but none of it was satisfying as
far as making a difference.
"Looks are important. When a women is looking

people feel better about themselves by making
them look better. He believes a woman who looks
good brings peace.

good the whole fanmily-de world is at peace,"
Ouzai said. "I can make a difference on a daily basis.
If she goes home happy the whole family is happy.
It can alsohelp people search for a job."

Edwin Cisneros, server, White Roses Banquet
& Catering
Edwin Cisneros was sworn
in as a U.S. citizen on June 10.
He is originally from El
Salvador.
He came to Venice three
years ago and started working
for White Roses Banquets and
Catering a-division of Buffalo
Bills in the Holiday Inn.
Cisneros decided to apply for
citizenship with the urging of
Banquet and Catering
Director Lori Hodgin.
"The whole process took
four months," Cisneros said.
Hodgin has let every party
they hold know that Cisneros *
is a new American citizen. She 1
said when he went to be inter-
viewed for his approval he lit
up like a candle.
"He just couldn't wait,"
Hodgin said. "He's been with
me three years and he's a won-
derful and ambitious young
man. He said someday he'd
become an American citizen." i
During the ceremony a
video message from President j'o
Bush and Florida Senator Bill L-. .-e
Nelson welcomed the new cit- d. The CfJairm
izens.
"They opened America for
all these new people,"
Cisneros said. "A lot of people
think that they don't like new
people coming in. but you just

have to open the door for yourself."
The same day that Cisneros was in Tampa to
swear in.. Vice President Dick Cheney was in town.
During the ceremony there were 250 people from
61 different countries sworn in, and as each country
was called the applicants had to stand up.
"He stood up and you'd have thought he was a

general in the army," Hodgin said. "He could've
been as tall as the Empire State Building. I was so
proud of him."
It was an experience Cisneros can be proud of.
"I felt like I was born again. I'll never forget it. It's
something that happened to me that I never would
believe," Cisneros said.
On his first official Independence Day he will
have a good reason to party.
"This will be my first one," Cisneros said. "It was
a dream I've had since I was a little kid. I think I'm
going to celebrate."
Ursula Brown, laundress, Venice Yacht Club
Ursula Brown also became a citizen on June 10.
She is originally from Germany, and she spent the
first 48 years of her life there. Her interview was on
lay 26 and her swearing in was on June 10.
"It was very extremely emotional. I'm more than
pleased and blessed." Brown said.
She applied last year in November and was told
she would have a lengthy wait, but the process was
relatively quick.
"I can read and write well, but if I have to fill out
some documents I need some help. I was told it
would take 730 days," she said.
In February she got another letter and in March
she was ready for the interview. She was surprised
by the test questions even though she had been
here and working at the VeniceYacht Club for more
than five years.
"Who wouldn't know who the governor of
Florida is? Who wouldn't know who the president
(of the United States) is? If they asked my about the
constitution there I may have a problem," she
said.
Brown has an aunt in Pensacola and she decided
she wanted to live here after visiting her.


Ursula Brown moved to the United States from
Germany more than 5 years ago., She enjoys the
freedoms she has as a laundress at the Venice Yacht
Club.

"People recognize how nice it is to live over here.
I wanted to come since '79, but I couldn't leave my
son alone in Germany."
She has adapted well and only uses here German
when someone gets her peeved.
"Sometimes if I get a little bit disappointed, then
TI'm going to use my German language so I don't
hurt anybody.
SBrown. sometimes thinks:
people born in America don't
know how lucky they are and
some of the freedoms and
privileges, like driving, are
taken for granted.
"It's easy going. In Germa-
ny you have to be 18," Brown
said. "It's easy if you have your
track right and know which
street to choose.
This past March marked
five years and three months at
the Venice Yacht Club for
Brown. She enjoys working
there because she can maiiage
herself and has afternoons to
herself. Her dream is to some-
day have her own beauty
salon.
When Brown first visited
the Unites States there were
several things, she liked about
this country.
"It's such a big country.
The streets are wider. You can
breathe. In Germany every-
thing is tight."
S This July 4 will be a special
one for her, too.
"Before, I was accepted,
but not really. I only had one
foot down. I can be myself. I
can't say I didn't feel free. I feel
safe and secure. The United
States of America will protect
Answers: ld, 2a, 3d, 4a lle."

*Are campers directed to
apply sunscreen before going
outside? An SPF 15+ sun-
screen (water-resistant for-

good) needs to be used regu-
larly. Campers and staff
should be instructed to bring
it from home, apply it 20-30
minutes before outdoor

should have a supply.
*Are campers urged to wear
protective clothing?
Historically, campers wore
only a T-shirt, shorts, and per-
haps a baseball cap. We now
know that's not enough. "We
ask campers and staff to wear
broad-brimmed hats, which
protect more of the face than
baseball caps do," said
Humes. The Skin Cancer
Foundation also advises
wearing a long-sleeved shirt,
long pants, and UV-protec-

campers cabins lie among tall

Holidays

STAFF REPORT

Rewards are endless for
every donor.
July Fourth, the biggest
holiday of the season, is
approaching, but with trips to
the beach, family barbeques
and baseball games comes
one less welcomed tradition
- summer blood shortages.
Due in part to the loss of val-
ued donor bases, such as stu-
dents and snowbirds, blood
usage typically skyrockets
with increased accidents and
scheduled surgeries. In addi-
tion, with a heightened
tourist population in the
Southwest Florida area, more
and more turn to us in need.
In response to dangerously
low blood inventories,
Florida's Blood Center has
issued a critical appeal for
blood to ensure a safe and
adequate supply is on-hand
to meet hospital needs. All
types of blood are needed at
this time. If blood inventories
are not increased patients
may be put at risk. Florida's
Blood Center is the sole
provider of blood and blood


blood loss

products for Venice Regional
Medical Center.
Show your support for our
troops this 4th of July holiday
by donating blood for our
community. Supporting
Florida's Blood Centers by
donating blood helps build a
healthy community and a
strong nation.
To donate blood, you must
be in good health, 17 years of
age or older and weigh a min-
imum of 110 pounds. As a
benefit to the donor, a mini
health check, which includes
evaluations of blood pressure,
iron level and cholesterol, is
performed to help the donor
maintain his or her good
health. The entire procedure,
from completing a short
medical history to drawing
blood and resting afterward
with refreshments, takes
approximately 30 to 45 min-
utes. Blood donation is safe,
and healthy people can
donate every 56 days.
Florida's Blood Center is
located in the Galleria Plaza at
'2065 S. Tamiami Trail in
Venice. For more informa-
tion, please call 492-9202.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


."I.


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

FRESH AIR


Who are the Friends of Oscar Scherer Park, Inc.?


Haulin' shell


The Friends of Oscar
Scherer Park, Inc. is a dedicat-
ed group of volunteers, orga-
nized to support the future of
this ,wonderful portion of
...the Real Florida.
T'he Florida Park Service
has been promoting
"Friends" groups for many
years in. an effort to increase
public support and public
awareness of our natural, cul-
tural and historic resources.
As a 501(c) nonprofit orga-
nization, the "Friends" raise
funds through grants, mer-
chandise sales, dues and
donations to assist in daily
park operations and special
items. Through their efforts,
we have been able to accom-
plish many park projects,
including the Nature Center
at Oscar Scherer State Park.
Another outstanding
"Friends" feature is the Lester
Finley Barrier Free Trail. This
was funded by donations
from friends and family of
Lester Finley, grants and the


Friends of Oscar Scherer Park,
Inc., who constructed this
wonderful trail with the help
of Pine View Students and
park staff. The award-win-
ning Lester Finley Barrier
Free Trail, is named in honor
of Mr. Finley, who also was a
park volunteer and was sight
impaired. While Lester
worked on the park trails, he
wished for a path through the
natural world his sister could
enjoy in her wheelchair.
Lester was killed in a hit-and-
run accident and his parents
continued his legacy by
cementing his idea for this
trail. Visit, and enjoy a quiet
stroll along South Creek,
where your senses can smell,
feel,.hear, see and sometimes
taste the beauty of nature.
Currently, the Friends of
Oscar Scherer Park, Inc. are
working to revamp all the trail
labels and maps to make it
easier to navigate through the
scrub and pine Flatwoods.
You will find your way well
marked and interpreted as
you venture out from the
comfort of the picnic areas
and campgrounds. Benches,
signs and color-coded
brochures are the results of
volunteers doing what they
can to make the park more
accessible and enjoyable. The
Wednesday Morning Group
has met week after week
working together on trails,
exotic plant removal and
other programs such as split-
ting wood for use by campers.


One "Friend" has taken some
of the Prescribed Fire Courses
to assist with our burning
program. Another, a writer,
has written numerous fea-
tures about the park, includ-
ing the Lester Finley Trail. She
has highlighted its inhabi-
tants, scrub jays, tortoises,
even rabbits. Her insight and
delightful style shows how the
connections between the
park and the community go
far and wide. Look for more
stories as the weeks pass.
Community Outreach
Programs brings speakers to
you. Members of the
"Friends" Board will entertain
you with park insights you
may never have known. Our
CSO President is very knowl-
edgeable on the inner work-
ings of the scrub community
and native plants in general.
Sunday mornings, you can
come and take a walk through
the scrub, and see what
makes Oscar Scherer State
Park, and our "Friends," so
unique.
Maybe you would like to
join us? It is easy to become a
member of the Friends of
Oscar Scherer State Park.
Those who come out to the
park and contribute leave
with more than what they
came with; a greater appreci-
ation for the environment,
lots of exercise, and of course,
some new friends.
John Roche is Park
Manager of Oscar Scherer
State Park.

HOW Coosing a new doctor

Im rove transportation now Chn t
t rblm ecxes elo mv wife has


KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST

Every day we receive
inquiry calls at the Senior
Friendship Center-Venice.
One of the most frequent is
a request for a ride. It is get-


ting more and more difficult
to meet these requests. Many
of our volunteer drivers have
gone north for the summer
and the price of gasoline is
limiting others.
At the same time our pub-
lic transportation system is
not meeting the ever-growing
needs of our community. We
just have major fixed routes
with no shelters or bus stop
benches.
The routes do not reach
into the areas where seniors
and young adults are needing
rides and they cannot reach
the distant bus stops.
The Para transportation
system is overwhelmed with
requests for rides and are lim-


iting them to something they
call "Essential".
At the same time all levels
of government have failed to
properly fund -the needed
changes and increase in oper-
ating funds the system
requires.
As the price of oil increases
the need for public trans-
portation will increase.
SThe longer we delay the
more you and I will be hurt.
Recommendations:
* The City of-Venice immedi-
ately adopt a design and build
the most needed covered,
accessible bus stops with in
the historic district. They
most also approve a bus.

der of the city.

cle Venice Regional Medical
Center and the health park
and as many doctors offices
as practical then feed into a
bus that goes to the Sarasota
Memorial area and circles the
medical offices there and
returns.

GUEST COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
After'living in the same town
for 40 years, and seeing the
same doctor for the last 25
years, my wife and I are packing
up and heading to California to
be near the grandchildren. We
have the ordinary aging health


had some heart problems and I
had colon cancer several years
ago. All is well with both of us
right now, but we're worried
about finding the right doctors
in our new town. Any advice? -
Califomia Dreaming

Dear California,
I'm happy to see you look-
ing into this matter so care-
fully. Most people spend
more time shopping for a car
or home loan than they
spend choosing a doctor,
which is a big mistake. With
so many choices, finding
good medical care these days
can be a little tricky. Here are
some things that can help.

The editor's- note at the

blind is a misnomer. I might
be able to see a cardinal if it
were a foot or two away.
Several years ago, after'
hearing me 'complain about
not being able to see or hear
much.under the frailty of old
age, my son asked me why I
didn't write again.
Me? I hadn't written any-
thing except rhymes for 30
years. Could I write a column?


I did not see how. My hand-
writing is illegible. I write
memos to my helpers but
they can't read them. That has
nothing to do with being
blind, however.
My granddaughter tells me
she couldn't read my writing
30 years ago. I don't have one
of those nice computers that
write what you say. Even if I
did I couldn't see to operate if.
So how do I do it? It often
amazes me that I can. I guess
I don't really write a column-I

Sometimes it takes them a
while to sort it out because I

when I talk I sometimes inter-
rupt myself to say something
else. Before I know it I've
started 3 ideas before I've fin-
ished one.
I try to check facts careful-
ly. I make a lot of phone calls
for research. I enjoy the
chance to write again about
30 years after I "retired" from


being a newspaper colum-
nist.
My old newspaper, the
Pioneer of Big Rapids, Michi-
gan, is reproducing some of
my recent columns. It is hard
to believe anybody cares
about what a 91-year-old has
to say, but they must because
I get letters expressing
appreciation for what I have
written-and ideas on what
else to write about.
Reader's ideas are all filed
away waiting for inspiration-
and their comments are


greatly appreciated. In fact
my children are particularly
grateful that I have. been
given this opportunity. I now
spend so much time thinking
of what to say next that I
stopped calling them to com-
plain about my health!

Choosing a doctor
The best time to choose a
doctor is while you're healthy
and have the time to really
think about all your choices.
If you don't currently have a
doctor or are thinking of


changing doctors here are
some things to consider:
Certification: Is the doc-
tor board certified for his or
her specialty?
Communication: Choose
a doctor that listens to your
concerns, answers your
questions, and explains
things clearly and carefully
Health insurance: Does
the doctor accept Medicare
or your specific health insur-
ance plan?
Location: Is the doctor's
office easy for you to get to,
and where is lab work done?

Storm enthusiasts enlist thunderstruck groups for touring


Journal of a storm chaser.


BY MICHAEL MARTINEZ
GUEST WRITER


We knew it was coming.
We had seen the clouds
gather for most of the after-
noon as we drove up the
highway from North Platte,
near central Nebraska. By the
time we checked into our
motel and ate at a local
restaurant, it was clear to
everyone that this would be
an eventful night.
Not a tornado. That's what
we desperately wanted to see
a dark, swirling funnel of
wind .stretching beneath a
massive supercell. We had
driven from Oklahoma to
Kansas to Colorado and now
to Nebraska hoping to find
one. But no luck.
So we had to be content
with a thunderstorm.
Not that anyone was com-
plaining. We saw a memo-
rable light show that night.
But the 18 of us who had piled
into three vans with Storm
Chasing Adventure Tours -
one of several companies that
offer weather geeks a chance
to pursue storms during tor-
nado season hoped for a
twister. Even a small one.
If chasing tornadoes
sounds a bit daft, consider.
that tours like these are usual-
ly sold out months in
advance, and that on days
when a tornado touches
down, the highways are
sometimes flooded with
storm chasers hoping for a
memorable glimpse. Mike
Forrester, a driver and free-
lance videographer who
shoots severe weather for the
Weather Channel, said one
Kansas highway resembled a
parking lot earlier this year as
cars followed several churn-
ing tornadoes.
"There must have been
100 cars out there," he said.
"People were standing in.


their yards videotaping us."
Our group heard amazing
stories from our guides about
tornadoes that had been wit-
nessed just one week earlier
more than a dozen during
a five-day tour and 11 ema-
nating from one supercell in
Attica, Kan. "The biggest
lightning I've ever seen in my
life," Mike said.
By comparison, our thun-
derstorm in early June paled.
From the restaurant patio,
several of us watched it form
in the growing darkness, mar-
veling at the intermittent
lightning and thunder. When
rain began to fall, we scurried
back to our van, then,
returned to watch the stormy
night from the covered motel
entrance.
For some, it was typical of
the types of storms seen
throughout the Midwest and
East Coast. For me, born and
raised in California, it was like
a fireworks show on the
Fourth of July. For several
hours, until well past mid-
night, the sky lit up as light-,
ning flashed sometimes
horizontally. We saw heavy
wind and rain, even tiny bits
of hail at one point..
The thunder was so loud it
set off'car alarms. Electricity
was temporarily cut off. Motel
guests gathered at their win-
dows to gawk at lightning that
streaked in all directions.
Impressive, although not
the prey we were seeking.
One week after our tour
ended, at least six tornadoes
touched down south of
Wichita, Kan., near the path
we had driven on our fourth
day.
Others were spotted in
Nebraska. We were one week
too early, one week too late. :
Still, we had an eventful
chase.
Here's the day-by-day jour-
nal of the trip, which travels


throughout notorious ares for
severe storms:
Day 1: Oklahoma, Kansas,
Colorado, Nebraska.
Miles traveled: 786.
Fifteen hours on the road,
starting in Oklahoma City. We
saw wheat fields in
Oklahoma, cornfields in
Kansas. We stopped in Dodge
City, Kan., and drove past
Boot Hill but saw no torna-
does. The National Weather
Service issued a tornado
watch warning until 9 p.m,
leaving us hopeful that some-
thing might develop, but
other than some ominous
clouds later in the day in
northeast Colorado, there
was little more than drizzle.
Our van carried a diverse
group: Steve Richman, an
ophthalmologist from Rhode
Island; Efrain Miranda, a
mortgage banker from
Chicago; Gary Webster. and
Wendy Turner Webster, a TV
actor and his TV host wife
from London; and Ken
Lennox, a photographer who
was hoping to get some shots
of Gary and Wendy for a
British magazine.
There were others on the
trip from overseas -
England, Amsterdam and
also from a variety of states.
They all loved storms.
"We live in such a.staid, old
weather country that we're
not used to this weather,"
Gary, the Brit, said on the first
night. "There's all this great
technology, but nature can
still tap us on the shoulder
and say, 'You haven't got it
yet.' We have to respect
nature."
Day 2: Nebraska,
South Dakota.
Miles traveled: 156.
The day ended with a:
spectacular thiniderstorm,
but it was preceded by more
driving, more waiting. We
pushed north into 'South


Dakota and spent several
hours in a casino parking lot
in Rosebud, S.D. A few of us
sat in front of slot machines
or at blackjack tables, waiting
for word from Todd Thom,
our group leader, who moni-
tored weather activity on his
laptop.
Earlier that afternoon, we
got our first look at a mam-
matus cloud, a collection of
pouch-like clouds that forms
in sinking air. Although
thought by many to be a pre-
cursor to tornadoes, they are
more typically seen after a
thunderstorm has passed.
But standing on a dirt road
next to an open field, we were
awed by the sight.
The storm that evening
gave us a real hope that we
might see a tornado before
our tour ended. The weather
was getting more threatening,
the clouds darker. Maybe our
third day would be a turning
point.
Day 3: Nebraska, Kansas.
Miles traveled: 487.
Still in Nebraska, we awoke
early and drove south, cover-
ing familiar ground on U.S.
Highway 83. Todd, who start-
ed Storm Chasing Adventure
Tours in 1998 and leads every
group, drove the lead van
toward Kansas. No one, not
even the other drivers, could
be certain where Todd was
headed. He tracks weather
patterns on high-tech com-
puter equipment and moni-
tors the Weather Channel for
information on storms, then
heads off in the appropriate
direction.
We didn't know what Todd
was seeing on his screen, -
or if he saw anything promis-'
ing but it didn't look good.
The sky was bright and blue.
At a rest stop, Ken, the
British photographer, bought
a chocolate doughnut and
some candles forWendy, who
turned 37 that day. After we


sang and she blew out the
candles, she told us, "I wished
for a tornado."
So did the rest of us.
Day 4: Kansas, Oklahoma.
Miles traveled: 442.
More clear skies. From
Salina, Kan., we drove south
on Interstate 135 toward
Oklahoma. On our way out of
town that morning, Todd
made a quick turn into a
motel parking lot, where a
tank-like contraption was
parked.
Todd and Mike spotted it
first: a TIV Tornado
Intercept Vehicle created by
Sean Casey, who has been
filming tornadoes for an
IMAX film to be released in
2008.
The vehicle, made using
the engine and chassis from a
truck, weighs 14,000 pounds
and was designed to allow
Casey to film tornadoes from
a distance of several hundred
feet.
There's a hydraulically
powered camera on top, but
inside it looked like a bache-
lor's unkempt apartment.
In northern Oklahoma, we
headed east and stopped in
Wakita a town of about 500
that has one claim to fame: It
was the primary location for
the post-torado destruction
scenes in the 1995 movie
"Twister."
At the corner of Locust and
Main is the Twister the Movie
Museum (www.twistercoun-
try.com), a collection of pho-
tos, posters and various
memorabilia left over from
the making of the film.
The most recognizable
piece is "Dorothy," the large
metal canister that was built
with the intention of sending
up sensors to measured a tor-
nado's force.
Some of us hoped: this
might portend a tornado
sighting of our own, but we
were mistaken. Todd, though,


led us on a wild ride later in
the day- down one highway,
a quick U-turn, a stop on a
dirt road, then just as quickly,
another direction on another
highway at racetrack speeds.
But the weather stayed hope-
lessly clear.
That night, in Ardmore,
Okla., I asked Todd if he ever
feels pressure trying to find
tornadoes for every group
that signs up for his tours. He
thought for a moment, then
said simply, "Yes." He
explained all the factors nec-
essary to create a tornado and
tells every tour he can't guar-
antee they'll see one. But
some chasers aren't satisfied,
he said.
"I feel like they think I'm
lying to them," he said. "I tell
them, 'We could go some-
where else, but it would look
the same."'
Even with no assurance of
a tornado, Todd who
attributes storm .chasing's
popularity to the movie and
the 24-hourWeather Channel
- has plenty of people sign-
ing up. In his first full year of
touring, he had 18 customers;
this year, he escorted about
130 and covered some 25,000
miles.
Day 5: Oklahoma, Texas.
Miles traveled: 188.
On our last day, with no
prospects for a twister-gener-
ating storm, Todd led our car-
avan south a few miles into
Texas, just so we could say we
traveled to six states in five
days. But after stopping in
Gainesville, Texas, for a few
minutes, we headed north
again, to Oklahoma City.
Someone heard a report of
a tornado in North Dakota,
but the drive would have
been too long to attempt,
mainly becausor next year's
chase. I want to continue the
hunt." A lot of us felt the same
way. Even without a real
twister,


Cruise make for luxurious getaways


STAFF REPORT

If you don't think getting
away from it all should
include leaving luxury

History Center requests artifacts from public


STAFF REPORT

SThe Sarasota County
History Center is asking the
public for information and
artifacts related to local expe-
riences in Sarasota County
during World War II. The
request is in preparation for
the History Center's upcom-
ing exhibit commemorating
the 60th anniversary of the
end of World War II. Artifacts
maybe loaned for the exhibit
or donated to the History
Center; the exhibit is sched-
uled to open later this sum-
mer.


During World War II,
Sarasota 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 Sarasota,
among other facilities. As citi-
zens 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.
"Our goal is for the exhib-


it to reflect the atmosphere
of Sarasota County during
that era both as a 'home-
front' and a training
ground," said Ann Shank,
Sarasota County historian.
"If anyone was stationed
here during the war, or has
stories or artifacts from fam-
ily 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 materials -
including uniforms, supplies,
memoirs, letters and other
memorabilia from the period.
While we are interested in.


World War II in general, the
focus of this exhibit is the
local experience during the
war"
People with information
or artifacts from the era are
asked to contact Mark D.
Smith, History Center
archivist, at 861-1186. The
Sarasota County History
Center is located at 701
North, Tamiami. Trail,
Sarasota. For more informa-
tion about the History
Center and its exhibits, col-
lections and mission, con-
tact the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000.

"Guitar: An American Life" by Tom Brookes


PHOTO COURTESY OF ATLANTIC MONTHLY PRESS


STAFF REPORT

So, who would you say is
the Greatest Guitar Player
Ever? Clapton or Les Paul?
How about Duane Eddy?
Stevie RayVaughn, maybe, or
Johnny Cash. Perhaps, when
you think of great guitarists, a
couple of Kings come to
mind: B.B. and Elvis.
Or maybe you consider
yourself to be the best on air
guitar.
It's okay. Playing air guitar
is a worthy and noble pursuit.
Author Tim Brookes doesn't
have to play air guitar
because he has a real one,
and in his new book "Guitar:
An American Life" (c.2005,
Grove Atlantic), he writes
about hisquest for the perfect
instrument.
Tim Brookes and his Fylde
guitar were the best, of
friends. More than 20 years
ago, when Brookes lived in


Great Britain, he gathered all
the money he had and hitch-
hiked to London to buy the
Fylde.
He and the Fylde had
played in coffeehouses and
late-night gigs. Theyhad been
together through marriages,
job-switching, and child-rais-
ing. Then, on a Sunday in
August some years ago, after
an otherwise uneventful
flight to the United States,
Brookes opened his guitar
case and found the Fylde bro-
ken.
Brookes tried to fix the
wounded guitar, but he knew
he was an amateur in his
repairs. Amazingly, after ask-
ing around, he learned that a
luthier (a person who builds
guitars) lived about fifteen
miles up the road in the
Green Mountains of
Vermont. Brookes decided
that it would be interesting to
commission a new, custom-


built guitar and watch it being
made, step by step.
For over a year, Brookes
watched luthier Rick Davis,
build the instrument.
Brookes chose the wood
(cherry on the back, spruce
on the front), decided on the
rosette (the fancy ring around
the sound hole), and regret-
fully brushed away decisions
for the inlays on the head and
neck.
As the seasons changed,
Brookes watched as Davis
changed boards and glue,
varnish and sawdust into a
work of art and a workable
guitar.
"Guitar: An American Life"
is a little bit like a song with
two-part harmony. In addi-
tion to the story of his guitar,
author Tim Brookes also
examines the history of the
guitar as an instrument and
as an instrument of change,
Brookes writes about


Mexican and Hawaiian influ-
ence on guitar playing, and
guitar-as-entertainment dur-
ing the Depression.
He shows how African
Americans in the Jazz Age
used the guitar to create a
new kind, of music, and he
writes about the guitar's role
in shaping rock & roll as we
know it. I liked this book,
but there were times that I
wished Brookes had slowed
down a little, tempered his
enthusiasm, and reminded
me about the terms he was
using. While I appreciated
his excitement very much, I
occasionally had a hard time
following along.
Aside from that, "Guitar: An
American Life" was fun to
read, and music lovers will
find the history quite inter-
esting. If you're a musician,
though particularly a gui-
tar player this book will
truly strike a chord.


At easternmost point in North America, watch icebergs float by


BY JOHN BORDSEN
KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS


What's it like to live in a far-
off place most of us see only
on a vacation? Foreign
Correspondence is an inter-
view with someone who lives
in a spot you may want to
visit.
Kevin Heffernan, 35, is
sales manager of the Battery
Hotel and Suites, in St. John's,
Newfoundland. He is from
that Canadian port. which is
the easternmost point in
North America.
Q.What's winter weather like?
A. Between November and
March, the temperature typi-
cally ranges from 14 to 50
degrees Fahrenheit. We're
right on the water, so the tem-
perature changes quite a bit.
Our weather usually comes
up the Eastern seaboard from
Nova Scotia to Newfound-
land. On the other side of the
island, it gets much colder -
not above freezing in winter
- and they have ski resorts.
Our side of the island is the
most eastern point in North
America, so we're sort of in
the middle of a lot of chang-
ing weather.
Last year, we probably got
10 or 12 feet of snow; the year
before, a foot or two. Four
years ago, we.had 23 feet.
Q. What's the big tourism sea-

son up there?
A. It usually starts in June
and ends in late September.
Q. What are the most popular
tourist activities?
A.Whale watching. Iceberg
tours. Bird watching. There's a
bird colony with more than 2
million seabirds that's about a
30-minute drive from St.
John's. People go there in the
summertime.
Q. How close do icebergs get?
A. Sometimes you can see
out the window of the hotel.
Icebergs are popular with
boaters. They go out and
around them along the coast
of Newfoundland. You can
see them anywhere pretty
well, usually April through
June.
Q. Do icebergs ever become
beached?
A. Not usually, but it hap-
pens every now and then.
Icebergs are all different sizes
and shapes; I think the tide or
the wind takes them out to
sea-again, usually. We had a
famous one beached here in
April 1996. It was humon-
gous, and stayedabout three
weeks.
Q. Your hotel is right down-
town; what do you see when
you look out toward the har-
bor?
A. A big body of water with
boats, and the downtown
area's shops and businesses.

You get a view of the whole
city. You can see oil tankerson
the other side of the harbor.
In summer, you see more
sailboats and cruise ships.
This time of year, you see alot
of commercial fishing boats
and oil boats. We have an oil
supply base in St. John's for
the offshore rigs.
Q. There's oil drilling there?
A. Right now there are two
in operation, one being dug,
and more on the way. Every
year they find more oil, about
200 miles offshore. This is all
pretty new. The first rig was
built in 1997.
Q. What's Newfoundland
food?
A. Seafoodis very big; most
popular is cod. We have all
kinds all around halibut,
shrimp, scallops. The famous
Grand Banks are a couple
hundred miles off shore -
that's also where the oil fields
are. Good fishing; good oil.
Q. They're drilling in the
fishing banks? Isn't that a
problem?
A. Not yet. Only two rigs
are up and running right now
Q. What's the best seafood
shop in St. John's?


A. There's a mom-and-pop
place with fish and chips
called Ches's. You can get
lunch for Canadian $6 or $7.
But there are all kinds of
restaurants with all kinds of
food. You'd pay Canadian $28
in a fine restaurant for a
seafood or steak dinner, the
same as in Toronto. Or you
can get a take-out meal for
under Canadian $10.
Q. How far is it to Greenland
arld Europe, versus other
places in North America?
A. Greenland is about a
three-hour flight, I think.
England is five or 5 1/2 hours.
Montreal is about three
hours; New York is about the
same.
We're "the far east of the
Western world."
Q. Newfoundland is in the
Maritime time zone, which is
30 minutes ahead of Atlantic
time, which is an hour ahead
of Eastern. What does this do
to your TV habits?
A. We get "The Tonight
Show" here after the news -
around I am. We have local
stations that buy U.S. shows
in syndication. They come on
at 8 p.m. or whatever. Then if


you watch something from
NBC, new episodes of the
same show will air 90 minutes
later."
Q. On maps, it shows towns in
Newfoundland with both,
French and English names.
What language is most com-
mon?
A. We have English, Irish
and Scottish ancestors here.
I'd say that 99 percent or more
of the population speaks
English.
Q. Newfoundland wasn't,
an original part of Canada.
right?
A. We joined in 1949. Until
then, we were a separate
colony of England. We fought
in the world wars under
Britain's flag, not Canada's.
We are part of Canada but
have our own culture. A lot of
people, especially older folks,
still like the queen and things
like that.
Q. Is St. John's an old city?
A. It was founded in 1497
by the explorer John Cabot.
It's the oldest city in North
America.
Q. What's the oldest thing
there that's still standing?
A. Well, we had a lot of big


fires, so there's not a lot of
stuff earlier than 1892, when
,a fire destroyed the old city.
On top of Signal Hill is a
place called Cabot's Tower,
built in 1897 for the 400th
anniversary of Cabot's com-
ing here.
Q. What's Signal Hill?
A. That was for when
ships came into St. John's
before modern technology.
There was a system of flags,
and each fishing company
had one. When the ship was
approaching the port, they'd
put out flags that could be
seen from Signal Hill. Up on
the hill, they'd put out flags
announcing the arrival.
People in the city would
look up, and see 'the mes-
sage. You know: "Murphy's
boat is coming in. All get
ready to unload it."
They had hundreds and
thousands of flags.

Helping America's combat wounded


STAFF REPORT


Americans across the
country are helping to sa-
lute the bravery of wounded
servicemen and service-
women.
Often, when a serviceman
or servicewoman is wounded
in Iraq or Afghanistan, he or
she is rushed into medical
care and flown to the United
States without any personal
items. As a result, funds are
needed to buy underwear,
pajamas, slippers, shaving
gear,, tooth paste, laundry
soap and other comfort
items.
The Military Order of the
Purple Heart meets every air
ambulance that arrives at
Andrews Air Force Base.'It
gives the wounded a sheet of
stamps so they can write
home, as well as a phone
card so they can call family.
The group also provides
comfort items so the soldiers
can more easily return to
normalcy and relax.
To help raise funds for the
efforts, GI-Bracelet.org was
launched to sell GI Bracelets
and donate the money to the
Order. The bracelets are pur-
ple, the color of the Purple


Heart medal, and sport the
phrase "For Those Who
Serve." All donations desig-
nated for the Military Order
of the Purple Heart will be
delivered weekly and help
pay for comfort items for the
wounded.
People can order the
bracelets at: gi-bracelet.
org/purpleheart, or e-mail:
orders2005@gi-bracelet.org
to donate.
The Military Order of the
Purple Heart is the onlyveter-
ans service organization
chartered by Congress exclu-
sively for combat-wounded
veterans. The mission of the
Order is to foster an'environ-
ment of goodwill and cama-
raderie among combat-
wounded veterans, promote
patriotism, support necessary
legislative initiatives. and,
most importantly, provide
service to all veterans and
their families. The Order
covers all annual expenses
with donations.
The group says the purple
bracelets will let people know
that the troops are supported
at home-and help remind
Americans of the Order's
creed: 'All gave some ...
Some gave all."

"Doggie


es


Local libraries and Suncoast Humane Society team up to help children read.


Therapy dog Minooch, a Lhasa Apso. Jennifer Cunnane, 8, enjoys the Doggie Tales program.


STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEFF TAVARES* PHOTO EDITOR


"I light up when I see
them light up. They see the
dog and 'Wow' and it actual-
lyhelps the kids read better."
Barbie Carroll, a therapy
dog volunteer with the
Suncoast Humane Society
in Engelwood, is spending
another Tuesday at the
Jacaranda Library in Venice
with her 4-year-old Sa-
moyed, Dee Oh Gee, allow-
ing children to read to her
dog.
The Doggie Tales pro-.
gram, held at the library on
Tuesday at 3 p.m., takes
place because. Carroll and
the other volunteers believe
that children will be, en-
couraged to read and feel
more comfortable reading
with their therapy dogs pre-
sent.
"Some of the children,
when they first start, they're
kind of stuttering and hav-
ing a little difficulty reading
a little bit and they get excit-


ed thinking that, they really
know that the dog doesn't
understand, but it kind of
gives them a little inspira-
tion to read to the dog,"
explains Carroll.
Groups of two or three
children sit comfortably on
the floor reading to the three
dogs that were at the library
this past Tuesday. The dogs
calmly allow the children to
pet and hug them.
"They read to the dogs
arid they get better and
better every week, and I
can really see a difference
after a couple of weeks,"
adds Carroll.
Grandparents and par-
ents sit around the edges
of the room and allow the
children to interact with
the dogs and their trainers.
Four-year-old Kacy Cart-
wright was at the program
for the first time. Cartwright
said she loves reading to
and being around the dogs


because, she said, "they lick
you and that means they
like you."
Jennifer Cunnane, 8, is a
regular at the Doggie Tales
Tuesday program. When
asked why she comes often
to the reading program
Cunnane replies simply,
"Because I like dogs."
Suncoast Humane Soci-
ety in Englewood has 26
teams of volunteer pet
therapists. The 'teams,
which include one cat-
and-owner team, conduct
the pet therapy reading
programs at the Jacaranda
Library, the Venice Public
Library and the libraries
in Englewood and North
Port.
The pet therapy program
extends beyond the library
reading programs for chil-
dren. The teams of volun-
teers also conduct special-
needs classes in Sarasota
County schools and assisted


living facilities, and were
invited by the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office to
participate in the Venice
Oak Park School Kids at'Risk
Program.
Suncoast Humane Soci-
ety Director of Volunteers
Claire Burton oversees the
pet therapy program,
which has operated for five
years.
"I think it's an amazing
program. Foremost, what I
care about is the psycholog-
ical benefit. You have an
animal walk into a room
and there're instant smiles,"
says Burton.
For more information on
the pet therapy program
run by the Suncoast Hu-
mane Society, visit the Web
site at humane. org or
