How much "




for water? -V
',.,-1~~~~L~' rv'-.. .-' L' "


A new resident wants to
know why the city
requires such large
security deposits for
water service.
BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Ralph Book has decided to
move inside of city limits after
years of living just outside
Venice's boundaries.
And then he found out
how large a security deposit
was needed to get his city
water turned on $125.
Book-said he has lived in
many states and towns, and
this was the first time such a
large deposit was required.
:On top of that, the city
keeps the money for two
years and returns the money
only if the water customer
hasn't bounced any checks,


"This is really
egregious against the
renters and the
commercial people....
It just seems unjust."
F.ph- Book,
resident

had service disconnected for
nonpayment or tampered
with the water meter.
Book decided to do a little
digging and found out the city
is currently holding more
than $800,000 worth of water
service deposits, none of it
collecting any sort of interest.
Part of the reason that's such a
large amount is from all the
new construction and
because renters pay double
- $250 for water service.

heading for a projected landfall along
the northeastern Gulf Coast from the
Steinhatchee River westward to the
Pearl River, according to the National
Hurricane Center. Conditions were,


expected to worsen late Saturday night.
In Sarasota County, a voluntaryy

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
MARTYNA SZUROWICZ


You're never too old to fulfill a
childhood fantasy, like taking
a shift on patrol with your
local law enforcement agency.

BY HARRY BERRY
SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN

My name is Harry Berry and I am a
Venice resident. I retired from a steel
mill in Middletown, Ohio, and for a
long time I have wanted to try to
understand just what makes a cop
tick. I have several friends in the law
enforcement trade and it has always
interested me.
I finally got up enough nerve and
ambition to try it out. I talked to Chief
Jim Hanks of the Venice Police
Department, and after expressing my
desire, he agreed to let me ride with
one of his patrolmen.
What a hoot it was.
Officer Shaun Duriepicked me up
June 24 about 3:50 p.m., and by 4:03
p.m. we were at a burglary-in-
progress call assisting a Sarasota
County sheriff's deputy. Just a few
minutes later we were at another call,
down the street a few blocks. This
turned out to be a false alarm.
You have better have your seat belt

you are moving right now.
After the second burglary call we
went on a tour of the city limits: out

to Venetian Golf & River Club, where
we made a round trip through a beau-
tiful neighborhood. Back west over I-

It seemed strange: Part of the time
the city was on one side of the road,
part of the time on both sides of the
road and part of the time on the other
side too much for me to keep up
with.
Later we went for a nice dinner at
Patches Restaurant on Venice.Avenue
with Officer Chris Doughdy.
Running the plates
About 7:30 p.m. the department
started a DUI campaign. This resulted
in a large number of traffic stops and
tickets. These stops were made by offi-
cers from the Venice Police
Department and Sarasota County
Sheriff's deputies. I think the message
sent out Friday evening was, if you are
driving impaired or speeding, stay
away from Venice.
I was present when Officer Durie
made two traffic stops and watched
what he did. He constantly ran license
plate numbers while we sat at traffic
lights..

It's another world



canoeing on South Creek


BY FRAN PALMERI
GUEST WRITER


The creek is like glass. I
am in a canoe sitting on it,
instead of beside it.
For some time, I've been
walking the trails along South
Creek in Oscar Scherer State
Park, watching canoes and
kayaks pass by. From land,
the creek appears to be a
lovely still life: boat moving
on calm water under a huge
blue sky. Thetchange is star-
tling.
I expected uncluttered
horizons. Instead, I am im-
mersed in a green world,
sheltered by a canopy of live
oaks.
South Creek runs south-
west through the park toward
the Gulf of Mexico. Daily,
tides from the gulf move up
the creek. Fresh water comes
into the creek through rain-
water runoff. The combina-
tion creates brackish water.
Like a backdrop, the banks


pass by, cut into layers by
tides and floodwaters. Huge
old slash pines cling to the
edge, their roots half expos-
ed. Live oaks draped with
Spanish moss seem to float
like ghosts above the water.
Dead pines, sculpted by
weather into fantastic shapes,
provide the perfect perch for
the osprey.
Red mangroves march
along the bank and out into
the creek, dipping their tri-
angular "prop" roots into
the water. The intertwined
roots create hatcheries for
shrimp, shellfish and crabs.
This is where the little blue
heron feeds each evening.
Suddenly, like an appari-
tion, a big alligator appears
beside me, head above water,
the rest of him submerged,
pale and wavering in the
shallow water. I look into his
eye. It's a cold, dark place.
Sliding under the water, he's
gone without leaving so
much as a bubble.


Ever-present mullet jump
one, two, three times in front
of the canoe. No doubt, the
alligator will lunch well today.
Dragonflies, so large that
in the distance they look like
birds, rotor back and forth in
front of the boat, in search
of mosquitoes.
Getting closer to the gulf,
we pass. the old oyster beds.
We're moving out from un-
der the canopy into the bay.
Gone are the live oaks and
pines; instead, salt marsh
grasses line the banks.
We turn around and start
back up the creek to the boat
launch. All too soon I'm back
on land, reluctantly leaving
behind that "other" world.
Suggestions for boaters
A trip from the dam at'
the Nature Center and back
down past the canoe launch
into Dryman Bay by High-
way 41 takes about an hour,
longer if you pause along the
way.


In early morning, South Creek is like glass.


You can bring your own
or rent a canoe or kayak
from the park for $5.50.
There are two boat
launches: one at the Ranger
Station entrance to the park


for boaters who bring their
own, and one halfway down
the creek in the South Creek
Picnic Area, where the rental
boats are stored.
SThe park furnishes pad-

Sarasota County and North Port are
embroiled in yet another dispute, this one
over the city's need for more water.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Like North Port, Charlotte
County has increased its pro-
jections of water required
,from the Peace River/Man-
asota Regional Water Supply
Authority from its 1996 esti-
mate of 3.5 million gallons
per day to 5 mgd.
S e One difference, however, is
that Charlotte first antici-
pated it was going to need
:the additional water five
years ago, Charlotte County
Commissioner Adam. Cum-
mings said.
Charlotte County's projec-
tions also put it at risk of com-
ing up short in its allocation
from the final expansion pro-
ject.
However, under a contract
signed a few years ago, Char-
lotte County had agreed to
sell 2 mgd that was previously
allotted from the authority's
first water plant, expansion to
Sarasota County. That expan-
sion was dubbed the Peace
'River Option, which was
completed in 2002.
As a footnote, during the
recent project cost negotia-
tions, Charlotte asked Sara-
sota County to return that 2
mgd, and Sarasota tentatively
agreed, Cummings said.
Manatee's reluctance to
extend its deadline for wean-
ing Sarasota off its water
"shoots a billiard ball" into all
,those agreements, Cummings
!warned.
Still, Cummings said he
was optimistic that the au-
thority or its counties can
come up with a couple mil-
lion gallons of water per to


solve the disputes.
Cummings pointed out
Sarasota County's master plan
shows the county doesn't need
the additional water yet. In
fact, the authority had origi-:
nally planned to phase in the
final expansion of the water
plant so Sarasota's demands
could be met as they grew.
"The one customer that is
getting its requested amount
(Sarasota County) is the one
customer that needs it the
least," Cummings said.
Cummings feels the au-
thority should find a way to
provide the water North Port
Needs.
Not in the plan
Sarasota County commis-
sioners argue that it reserved
its allocation in 1996, not only
by accurately projecting the
county's future demand in a
master plan, but also by offer-
ing to finance its share of the
expansion projects.
The city, on the other hand,
didn't increase its projections
until November 2004, said
Dave Bullock, Sarasota Coun-
ty deputy administrator.
.Several Sarasota County
commissioners during a joint
city/county meeting last week
also suggested their county
shouldn't be penalized be-
cause North Port did a poor
job of planning.
During the meeting, city
and county commissioners
also argued over a proposed
deal in which the city wanted
to buy 500,000 gallons per day
from the county to serve the
burgeoning Thomas Ranch
development. :'
The deal called for the


water to be pumped through
the county's 12-inch pipeline
along U.S. 41 north of River
Road. The line had been built
by the county before North
Port annexed the Thomas
Ranch in 2001.
Stalled
The water deal stalled in
recent months after the city
insisted it be charged Sara-
sota County's commercial
rate for the water instead of
the county's bulk rate. County
utility officials, however, dis-
agreed with the city's request.
The county's bulk rate
amounts to $3.66 per 1,000
gallons. The commercial rate
is $2.81 per 1,000 plus a base
services charge. Sarasota
County pays $2.04 per 1,000
gallons to buy water from
the authority.
According to county utility
officials, the commercial rate
would cost the city more. But,
Cindi Mick, N.P. Utilities
Director, said her calculations
indicate othj"ise.
Mick called the county's
offer "unethical" and "price
gouging." She pointed out the
rate was about double what
the price the county pays for
water from the authority.
But, Sarasota County Util-
ity Director George Mc-
Farland explained, the bulk
rate is higher than the auth-
ority's price because the
county's price accounts for
all the costs the county has
incurred with its water sys-
tem. That includes some
$260 million in debt, he said.
It is also the same rate the
county charges other bulk
water users, he said.
Meanwhile, however, the
developers of the ranch,
which is technically known
as the West Villages District,
opted to build their own 16-

inch line to the tract. It is to
run parallel to the county's
12-inch line.
That rendered the county's
line all but obsolete.
"This is an unfortunate
lost opportluity, Mick said.
Old numbers
Mick said the city's previ-
ous projectons, thatitwould
only need 1.5 mgd in addi-
tional allocation from the
final expansion projects, was
based oi die grow-th rate in
the mid-1990s.
That was before the city
annexed Thomas Ranch,
which is now slated to be-
come a city of 15,000.
Since then, North Port
and Sarasota County have.
both boomed. In 2003-2004.
North Port experienced a
60-percent increase in the
number of building permits,
said Sam Jones, city planning


director.
"That is a beyond-healthy
growth rate," he said.
The number of well water
permits issued by the county.
increased froim150 per year a
few years ago to 1,500 last
year. Mick said. ,
Septic tank permits, in-
cluding many along fresh-
Swater canals that could be
used as a drinking water
source in the future, have
also increased exponential-
ly.
The fact that. the city
didn't accurately predict the
demand a decade ago should
not prevent the city from
getting its water needs met'
now, l ick argues.
"There is no legal contract
or document that says the
water authority has to allo-
cate the water supply accord-
ing: tq the projections of
1994," she said.


S"But, there is a legally
binding contract that says
the authority will provide
the water its members need,"
she added.
Agreed
Sarasota County and.
North Port officials agree on
one thing, however.
"We do believe we have
untapped water resources
that need to be developed
as quickly as possible," Mick
said.
County' Commissioner
Shannon Staub urged the
authority to pursue alterna-
tive sources more aggress-
ively.
"If that's what the board
wants to do, the issue is that
it could cloud the finances,"
Staub said.

TOOTH GRINDING.
Grinding your teeth (Bruxism) eventually can cause destruction to the |
supportive bone and gums around the teeth. Eventually this can lead
to TMJ (Tempromandibular Joint Syndrome), headaches, jaw pain, worn
teeth or other problems. Until told, many people do not even realize
they grind while sleeping.
Bruxism is considered to be a stress related problem and effects
upwards of 30% of the adult population. It is a serious problem today.
The noise developed by a sleeping grinder cannot be duplicated when
the grinder is awake. Although children brux (grind) as easily as 3
years, they usually stop around 12. Adults often stop when stress
leaves their lives. Even some people who have no teeth grind their
gums, so obviously it isn't always just a tooth problem.
Although the dentist is a good place to start and much success has
been realized by therapy such as splints, don't be surprised if your
dentist recommends other help directed toward teaching you to relax.

Dedicated affordable housing revenue suggested


A Sarasota County Planning Commission
recommends an annual allocation from
the county's 1 percent local option sales tax
to pay for land purchases and grants
to nonprofithousing organizations.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Affordable housing for ser-
vice, sector employees and
families with moderate in-
comes is one of those politi-
cally correct subjects Sarasota
County politicians embrace
when election cycles roll
around, but then fail to sur-
vive the final cut when annual
budgets are approved.
On June 14, the county
planning commission made
an unanticipated proposal
that could change that trend
if the initiative isn't watered
down during staff delibera-
tions or swept aside this


autumn when it comes be-
fore the county commission.
The planning commission
unanimously agreed that a
portion of the county's 1-
percent local-option sales tax
should be allocated to afford-
able housing when an exten-
sion of the $27 million annual
revenue source is submitted
to the voters before it expires
in 2009.
"We didn't specifically rec-
ommend what portion of the
sales tax revenue should be
set aside for affordable hous-
ing," planning commissioner
Joe Barbetta said, "but I sug-
gested 1/10th of the penny,
which would raise about $2.7


million a year."
The motion to pursue a
dedicated revenue source for
affordable housing was of-
fered by commissioner Terry
Turner, and seconded by
Barbetta, with the caveat that
the money be reallocated
from existing revenue rather
than the adoption of a new
tax.
"There has been a lot of lip
service about affordable
housing and it is addressed
in Chapter 7 of the county's
comprehensive plan," Bar-
betta said. "But nobody was
ready to take a bite until
organizations such as SCOPE
and the chamber of com-
merce identified it as a pri-
ority."
One on the table
SCOPE is the acronym for
Sarasota County Openly Plans
for Excellence, which is a
group of community leaders
who meet regularly to analyze


local needs and identify those
that deserve the highest prior-
ity. It ranked affordable hous-
ing at the top of the list.
The Greater Sarasota
Chamber of Commerce has
also waded into the debate,
in part because an economic
development council that
analyzes new business op-
portunities has come to the
conclusion that local workers
can no longer afford to buy
homes in the community.
So far, the only initiative
seriously considered by the
county commission is a one-
time contribution of $9 mil-
lion to $10 million to purchase
parcels dedicated for afford-
able housing. It would come
from the sale of North Port
lots previously seized for
nonpayment of property
taxes.
The planning commis-
sion's affordable housing pro-
posal will be forwarded in a
package of comprehensive


plan update recommenda-
tions. If approved, the money
could be spent to buy land,
subsidize rehabilitation pro-
grams or be allocated to non-
profit organizations.
Safe for now
A Florida law known as the
Sadowski Act provides the
county with some limited
annual assistance to provide
down payment assistance for
about 100 families, subsidize
repairs for about 50 others,
and offer grants to developers
who build affordable rental
housing.
In 1992, state lawmakers
adopted the William E. Sa-
dowski Affordable Housing
Act and established a tax on
real estate sales to raise
money for affordable housing
programs. Some of it goes to
communities through the
State Housing Initiatives Part-
nership Program.
The trust fund that collects


tax revenue from real estate
sales became a revenue target
several years ago when law-
makers faced tight budget
constraints. In 2004, they
capped expenditures at $193
million and diverted $220 mil-
lion into the state's general
fund.
This spring, affordable
housing advocates fended off
efforts by Gov. Jeb Bush and
some lawmakers to again raid
the trust fund. Instead, the
Florida Legislature allocated
$250 million for unmet hur-
ricane housing needs and
$193 million to affordable
housing programs.
No cap was placed on
affordable housing expendi-
tures for fiscal year- 2006-
2007, although that decision
could be subject to change
when lawmakers meet next
spring. A $243 million cap
was tentatively placed on
affordable housing expendi-
tures for fiscal year 2007-2008.


ARB minor alterations


cap increase up for vote


Theme district rules approval among
the many items on a packed agenda.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR"


The amount of renovation
work, that requires Archi-
tecture Rexiew Board approv-
al could triple if Venice City
Council approves an ordi-
nance up for first reading
Tuesday.
The proposed amendment
would give city staff the power
to approve work to buildings in
theme districts as long as
it costs less than $7,500. Cur-
rent provisions have any job
Costing more than $2.500 hav-
ing to go before the seven-
:member ARB for a. vote on
whether or not changes meet
strict appearance standards.
All other requirements to
buildings under the city's
Historic Venice and Venetian
Theme districts would re-
main unchanged. According
to the 2002 guidebook, any
job that requires a city build-
ing permit and is within.
public view must either have


staff or ARB approval.
In a story written July 3,
work to Venice Regional
Medical Center will not have
to go before the board, ac-
cording to City Attorney
Wayne Hall. Even though
exterior work to the 50-year-
old hospital that is in the
Venetian Theme District
requires a building permit,
"adding or changing stucco
or paint" does not require
ARB approval, Hall said.
The building permit appli-
cation lists the stucco job as
costing I\ RIC $814,000.
Also on the agenda
: Here are the highlights of
other items on Tuesday's
agenda:
Political signs Final
reading on a new Venice law
that would restrict placement
of political candidate signs
until after a person has
qualified to run. The law also
would clearly state that signs
are only allowed on private


property.
Lawn mowers Final
reading on a law expanding
operation of domestic power
tools and lawn mowers with-in
city limits until 10 p.m. on any
night of the week. Grass-cut-
ting can start at 7 a.m. week-
days, 8 a.m.,Saturday and holi-
days, and 9 a.m. Sunday.
Existing noise ordinances
unintentionally prevent use of
lawn mowers before 10 a.m.,
according to city staff.
Economic Development
- Brian Meurs, chairman of
the Economic Development
Corp. of Sarasota, will lead a
presentation updating coun-
cil on the progress, of the
Economic Development Pro-
gram and Council.
Garbage collection
First reading on an ordinance
limiting the hours of city
garbage, collection based on
zoning districts.. Collection
would be limited to the hours
of 7 a.m.-7 p.m. in residential
zoned districts and all prop-
erties within 150 feet. Col-
lection can start at 5 a.m. in
business and commercial dis-
tricts, if the proposal passes.

Medjool Palms just fine
Venice City Hall has re-
ceived a handful of com-
plaints during the past few
months that it is killing the
$4,500 per tree Medjool Palms
lining U.S. 41 Business by
leaving them tied up.
The response from Director
of Public Works Larry Heath:
They're just fine.
"Please be assured that
these palm trees are not be-
ing neglected," Heath wrote.
"The importance of protect-
ing the palm tree heart, which
is located at the head of where
the palm frondsgrow, is criti-
cal. Fronds are tied up using
biodegradable twine to pro-
tect the bud portion of the

palm tree heart."
The trees planted in Venice
require the fronds to be tied
up for eight to 12 months.
Based on the planting
dates,-the trees closest to
Circus Bridge are expected to
be untied within the next two


months.
Paw Park parking
At least one resident is
complaining that' people
continue parking all along
South Harbor Drive instead
of using new parking created,
for Paw Park, the only dog
park based right on the beach.
The letter points to how
an access gate next to the
new, shell parking lot the
site of Venice's old sewage
treatment plant is chain-
ed shut making patrons have
to take the long way around
to the entrance.
"Since the entrance gate
from the new parking lot was
chained shut, people have
gone back to parking on the
street and no one is using the
lot,".Elaine Schwartz wrote.
The gate mentioned by
Schwartz was installed for
maintenance reasons, ac-
cording to the city. A set of
double gates, like the ones at


the main entrance, is needed
to prevent pets from escaping
the park area.
Venice will ask for in-
creased police patrols that
could ticket drivers parked on
the road instead of using the
new lot.
Once the old sewage plant
is converted into a park later
this year, a "doggie gate" may
replace the maintenance
gate already there.
"The distance along the
sidewalk from .the interim
parking area to the Paw Park
is approximately 100' feet,"
wrote City Engineer Nancy
Woodley. "I would, assume
that folks who are taking their
dogs to the Paw Park for exer-
cise would not find walking
along the sidewalk to the
double gate entrance to Paw
Park too onerous until thp
final design of Tramontp.
Vista Park is completed."

Osprey renaissance


revives Southbay


Cousin It visits Venice


The shopping center,
once a major economic
center for the village, is
:undergoing a rebirth
.thanks to the building
,boom precipitated by
the arrival ofWal-Mart.

BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT
For almost three years
Osprey residents feared that
'the fallout of businesses along
U.S. 41 would reduce the for-
mer fishing village to a pass-
'by with two traffic lights the
only reason motorists would
stop.
SThe rapid decline of the
'Southbay Fashion Center at
-Blackburn Point Road and the
highway promoted the feel-
ing. Within months, Jacobson's
department store, a restaurant
and several retailers closed
their doors, giving the 98,000-
-square-foot plaza the appear-
Aance of an empty parking lot.
Better days have come.
Together with the develop-
ment, less than a mile north,
'of a Wal-Mart SuperCenter,
"scheduled to open late next
month, and the $150 million
'Bay Street Village that will
'include shopping, condo-
':miniums and townhouses and
^a public library, Southbay is
coming back to life.
It has changed its style and
'its name. Now known as the
;Southbay Shopping Center,
incoming retail units will be
,focused on home furnishings
'instead of fashion.
"The anchor unit deter-
mines the style of a shopping


center," said Brad Hawkins of
Oakmont Capital, the leasing
agent.
When it was a fashion cen-
ter, the biggest store was
Jacobson's, part of a national
chain. Eighteen months after
its close, Coastal Home by
Bealls moved in as anchor.
That followed considera-
tion first of a supermarket,
then .another department
store. The center's owner, a
Michigan-based real estate
investment trust, and
Oakmont concluded that a
style change was in order.
"Every center has a cycle,"
said a spokesman for Ramco-
Gershenson, ) the center's
owner. 'At one time, this was a
great fashion location," he
added.
But with so many homes
being built across U.S. 41 at
Willowbend and Rivendell,
and condominium develop-
ments planned on Blackburn
Point Road and Bay Street, a
home-furnishings focus
should prove easier to market,
he predicted.
Filling up
Only two retail units remain
vacant, according to Hawkins.
Fletcher Music has taken over
the site of Patchington's.
Churchill's Furniture will soon
occupy the former EthanAllen
store, which outgrew its space
and moved north along the
highway. An interior design
firm is considering a site at the
center.
Trustco Bank, a public
company traded on the New
York Stock Exchange, is the
only stand-alone entity in the
center. Elegant Outdoor
Lifestyles, a subsidiary of
Naples Patio Inc., Marsha

This landscaping truck seemed a bit overloaded with yard waste as it drove through Sarasota recently.


Dove Swan salon and a pool
supply company have opened
since January.
Scheduled to open in mid-
September is Alexandre's
restaurant, a 150-seat purvey-
or of European cuisine on the
site of the Bermuda Bay
restaurant. Osprey residents
were saddened when it closed
four years ago. They had
enjoyed a quality restaurant in
the neighborhood.
Alexandre's will be operated
by PascalVan Hulle, a native of
Belgium whose family has run
restaurants in Brussels.
"We really would like to see
Southbay evolve into an.
upscale neighborhood shop-
ping center," Hawkins said.
To that end, his firm has for
several months sought as a
tenant a coffee shop-deli-
catessen.
"That, we think, would help
us meet our goal," he added.

VPD from page 1A


The information that can
be had from just your license
plate is very interesting, and
the in-car computer system is
fantastic. This technology
keeps the officers informed
about who and what is dri-
ving through our town.
One of Durie's pet peeves is
people who run the light
changing from yellow to red.
We sat and watched traffic at
several locations just for this.
By the way, contrary to popu-
lar belief, there is no traffic
ticket quota in Venice.
Before long, and way too
soon, we were at the end of
Durie's shift and I was safely
deposited back at my home.
VPD in depth
Venice is divided into
seven patrol zones and the
zones are divided into grids.
The island is divided into
three zones: the airport, with
a full-time patrolman; the
area around the hospital and
schools; and downtown to
the jetty and north bridge.
.Wellfield park and the
industrial area make up
another zone. The balance of
the city makes up the other
four zones. This makes it easy
to keep it all. straight and
everyone knows where they
are supposed to be, which
this helps to reduce call
response time.
The jail is operated and
staffed by the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office.
Prisoners are kept there only
long enough to post bail; if
they can't post, they are trans-
ported to the county jail in
Sarasota.
Venice has 55 sworn officers.
This includes the chief, deputy
chief, captain, four lieutenants,
one lieutenant of detectives
and seven sergeants. We have a
narcotics detective, a traffic
enforcement officer, a youth
service/community relations
officer, and a crime preven-

are two K-9 officers and one

Marine Patrol Officer Phil
Phillips will have two relief
officers shortly: Officer Paul
Joyce and Officer Betty Camp.
They park their boat on the
waterway at the Marine
Patrol Building and patrol the
water five days a week,
including weekends. The
patrol covers the Intracoastal
Waterway to Snake Island
and out into the gulf.
There are nine or 10 patrol-
men on duty at any hour every
day. They have a staggered
day-off schedule: Monday and
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
or Saturday and Sunday.
On Wednesday everyone
works; this is the training day.


Sarasota County sheriff's deputies Jack Ritter, left, and Andrew
Rowe confer with VPD officer Shaun Durie during a joint DUI
campaign.


All of the officers are brought
up to date on the latest rules
and changes and, most
important, on safety.
The department has 25
unsworn employees: a senior
criminalistics specialist, a
criminalistics specialist, a
records supervisor, a senior
records clerk and a records
clerk. There are nine police
communicators and a police


communication supervisor.
There are four administrative
aides. We have six school

intern for half a day.

the mobility of the patrol offi-
cers, there is no plan for a
satellite office at this time.
The police firing range is at
Wellfield Park, where the offi-

The police department
operates 22 marked cars.
Each car is on the road 16 or

When the cars reach 90,000-
100,000 miles, all the police
equipment is removed and
'the cars are reassigned to
other city departments, to
give the most use per vehicle.
Several cars are in service

approximately a 30 percent


rise in felonies and an 85 per-
cent increase in misde-

doing something right.
(It was explained to me
that the difference between a
felony and misdemeanor is
the amount of jail time: A
misdemeanor is less than a

while felony is the more seri-

demand for certified officers
and a bidding war between
the different departments:
sheriff, North Port police and
VPD. Usually the highest
wage offer is the winner.
Kudos and thanks
I want to express my
,thanks to Chief Hanks for giv-
ing me the chance to fulfill a
lifelong dream, and special
'thanks to all of the officers
who treated me like a long-
time friend: Sgt. Thomas
McNulty; officers Shaun
Durie, Chris Doughdy and
,Ralph Casselli; K-9 officers
Troy Crepeau and Kido, and
'Paul Freeman and Syrus; and
:deputies Jack Ritter and
Andrew Rowe. Thanks to all of
you whose names I can't
remember.
All of the patrolmen I met
were very nice to me, and all
'of them seem to enjoy what
.they do.


After I witnessed just what
they do for a living, I have a lot
more respect for our police-
men and the job they do.
I know their job is done
without thanks from the peo-
ple of our community.
If you appreciate our
police officers, help make
their day: When you see one,
give a wave or honk your
horn. It won't cost anything
and just might make you feel
better too.
And there's one thing to
keep in mind if you are on the
wrong end of a traffic stop,
when that flashing light goes
on and you think, "Darn, why
me?"
You know exactly who is
behind you, and that cop
knows who is supposed to be
driving your car, but isn't sure.
So cut him a little slack for
your mistake. It will make his
day better and won't hurt
yours a bit.


also show what is alleged to
be damage to benches and
other public property by
skateboarding.
As for personal injuries,
the city manager was not
aware of any specific reports.
Posting signs and
improved policing could alle-
viate property damage, Black
said, because this would be
considered vandalism. The
city manager is hesitant to
endorse the idea of banning
skateboards, but Black said
he'll follow the policy direc-
tion of council.
Tacy has been the only
council member to speak
publicly in support of a skate-
board ban. He was prompted
to make the motion after
hearing from local resident
Norm' Lupo, who claims
skateboarders downtown
present a public safety hazard
and damage property
Lupo wants to know why


skateboarders do not use the
new skate park at Venice
YMCA. Less than a year ago,
city council and Sarasota
County each kicked in
$100,000 toward the park on
Center Road.
In April, Lupo also was the
resident who asked for a min-
imum grade point average of
2.0 for any youth wanting to
use the skate park.
"If you or I cannot hit prac-
tice golf balls downtown or on
the sidewalks, or hit tennis
balls, etc. all being an activ-
ity of public endangerment
- how and why the apparent
'double-standard' in enforce-
ment or city policy in this
regards," Lupo wrote in. his
letter to the city.
Waterfront headed
to council
City council members are
still months away from con-
sidering whether Waterford


Companies owner Mike
Miller can rebuild a section of
Venice island across the street
from where his three condo-.
minium towers will be.
But on Tuesday, members
will get to view and comment
- as well as field audience
questions on the proposal
Miller has been showing to
local community groups.
No actions or decisions
will be made Tuesday. The
presentation is meant to be
informational and provide
suggestions to Miller.
Much of the public and
council want to know Miller's
intentions for the 2.88 acres
bordered by U.S. 41 Business
to the west, Venice Avenue
Bridge to the south and the
Intracoastal Waterway on the
north and east.
Tentatively scheduled for
Venice Planning Commission
review Aug. 16, the two appli-
cations are to create an


entirely new zoning district,
called Waterfront Mixed Use
District, and to rezone the
land Waterford owns to that
new type of zoning.
Aside from the waterfront
restaurant and parking
garage, all but two of the nine
structures would be five sto-
ries or taller. Five of them
would be seven stories; those
also appear to have the
largest foot print. Any build-
ing taller than five stories
would be required to have
some type of commercial use
on the first two floors.
The land is currently zoned
as Commercial Intensive and
Commercial Business
District. This zoning limits
buildings to 35 feet, but CBD
does allow for an additional
10 feet.

S"This is just not right. This
,is prejudicial," Book said.
F"This is really egregious
"against the renters and the
"commercial people. They
ave to pay so much more. It
,just seems unjust."
. Book plans on speaking
about this topic during the
audience participation por-
tion of Tuesday's 1:30 p.m.
eVenice City Council meeting.
FEven though he's in the $125
deposit bracket, Book thinks
'the city needs to revisit how
:much it's charging in water
servicee deposits up to
:2,200 and how the money'
s handled.
e Keeping more than

account turns this into "dead

finance director?
SWhen asked about this,
iity Manager Marty Black
admitted this is the first
Forida city he's lived in where
every water customer had to
1pay the deposit.
; The amount, established
)y city ordinance more than.
I.,
i


20 years ago, is to guard
against customers who do
not pay their water bill. There
have been no reported prob-
lems with customers receiv-
ing their money back at the
end of two years of uninter-
rupted service, Black said,
Questions about whether
this is good policy must be
answered by a finance direc-
tor, Black said.
"This is a very legitimate
issue, and that's what I told
Mr. Book when we spoke. ...
That is, however, a finance
question," Black said.
Problem is, Venice has not
had a finance director for
almost a year after the last
one quit five weeks into the
job in August 2004. JoAnne
Lounsbury has been the
interim finance director ever
since, trying to maintain
accounts and generate bud-
gets as she waits for city
council to start its search
again.
In the past year, city coun-
cil hasn't even had a candi-
date for the vacant job come
up fora vote.


Getting your
money back
The actual ordinance, Sec.
74-9, Deposits, reads:
"Before rendering service,
the city shall require from the
customer a deposit to secure
payment of bills. The amount
of such deposit shall be
according to the ... amount
as the finance director deter-
mines is necessary to provide
adequate security consider-
ing individual circumstances.
Such deposits may be held by
the city until final settlement
of the customer's account.
The city may require an addi-
tional deposit from a cus-
tomer, based on the cus-
tomer's payment record."
The ordinance sets the
rates, with .property owners
paying $125 and renters $250.
These amounts increase
based on the size of the water
line.
A 6-inch pipe, commonly
used by commercial proper-
ties, requires the largest
deposit, at $1,100 for owners
and $2,200 for renters.


While owners can ask for a
refund check after two years,
renters cannot do this,
according to the ordinance.
The refund amount must be
credited to the renter's water
account.
Book will not be a renter
when he moves into Venice
later this month, but he does
feel as if tenants are being
treated unfairly.
The future resident would
like to see security deposits
required only if a customer
has a bad credit history when
it comes to paying utility bills.
"I just don't understand
what they're after," Book said.
"What, are we not creditwor-
thy? Is that what they're say-
ing? And then, to find out
they're sitting on over
$800,000 worth of money and
they're not even managing it.
... This is just an arcane ordi-
nance."

take 9-10 title

Nats fire on all cylinders
in 11-2 victory over rival American in
District 16 championship game.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Terry Tritschler knows
beating the same team three
times in a tournament is a
tall task to accomplish.
His Venice National 9-10
year-old All Stars were in
such a predicament in the
District 16 Little League final
Friday night at Twin Lakes
Park in east Sarasota.


Making it even tougher
was the fact that the oppo-
nent was neighborhood rival
Venice American.
"I was nervous all day," said
Tritschler, the veteran Venice
Little League coach and man-
ager. "I know how hard it is.
Plus, we know all these kids
and their coaching staff is a
class act."
On the field, it wasn't as

nearly as tough, as National
showed why it was clearly

ment.
National secured the dis-
trict championship with an
11-2 victory over American.
After the game, Tritschler,
assistants Randy Smith, Joey
Gaither, Tom Grubbs and


all of the players chanted
"Skyler, Skler, Sker, Syler" for
fallen Little Leaguer Skyler
Kuzniarek, who passed away
last month.
National, which finished a
perfect 6-0 in the tourney,
advances to the Section 6
Tournament, which begins
Friday, July 22, at the Braden


River Complex in Bradenton.
The sectional will involve
four teams in pool play. The

Hurricanes can wreak havoc with wildlife


FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE


' Florida's fish and wildlife,
still reeling from last year's
relentless hurricane season,
may be in for another assault
from Hurricane Dennis.
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC)
biologists, however, say the
news won't be all bad.
If the storm makes landfall
in Florida, it is likely to take
a heavy toll on sea turtle
and shorebird nests.
Hopefully, the birds will
have time to renest, and the
turtles will nest again if beach
renourishment and clean-up
operations don't block them.


Because most activities
involving construction and
use of vehicles and heavy
equipment is prohibited on
Florida's beaches without
authorization from the Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP),
citizens and local govern-
ments should consult the DEP
before undertaking any clean-
up activities on the beach.
If any clean-up or repair
activities are approved under
an emergency authorization
by the state or local govern-
ment, sea turtle biologist Dr.
Robbin Trindell said-the FWC
will coordinate recovery
projects to prevent conflicts


with endangered species
protection.
"Once the state has issued
an authorization for emer-
gency repairs, our office
works closely with other
state and federal agencies to
ensure that Florida's citizens
can take actions necessary to
protect and to repair their
property without harming
threatened ,and endangered
species that are also trying
to recover from the storms,"
she said.
Information on storm
damage and any emergency
authorizations is available
on the DEP Web site, http:
/ /www.dep.state.fl.us'/main-.


page/em/default.htm.
Storms claim individual
animals and destroy food and
shelter they need. In addition,
non-native (and dangerous)
animals may escape captivity,
and winds may scatter non-
native plants.
Fortunately, most of Flor-
ida's native species are adapt-
ed to recover from storms.
Some non-native species are
not, so hurricanes help control
their populations in the wild.
Other species that proba-
bly will suffer setbacks in-
clude scrub jays, red-cock-
aded woodpeckers, bald
eagles and burrowing owls.
Scrub jays rely on foliage


to conceal them from aerial
predators, but hurricanes
commonly defoliate plants
they need for cover. Buri
rowing owls may be trapped
in their burrows by debris
and other birds lose their
homes when trees go down. :.;
Fish populations may dq,
crease when high winds stir
up upper and lower layers of
water in lakes, causing fatal
oxygen depletion, but again,
fish populations can recover
promptly and naturally.
Species that benefit from
hurricanes include gopher
frogs and spadefoot toads
which only breed after heavy
rainfall.

American batter Colton Lightner in the sixth inning of Friday's
district championship game.


be- there," Tritschler said.
"We're going up there to
win."
The fact that they even got
the game in Friday night
was amazing. The first band
,of: rain from Hurricane
Dediis skipped around Twin
Lates Park. That opened a
wipdow of opportunity. The
coinplex was deluged by a
thunderstorm shortly after
the completion of the game.
~The game looked like it
wpuld be a pitching duel in
thi early going, as Cooper
Hammond of the Nationals
ari Colton Lightner of the
Aericans traded goose eggs
in''the first inning. In fact,
.ihtner struck out the side
in. the first.
.That all changed quickly
in; the top of the second, as
Nick Longhi and Zak Harman
belted back-to-back home
runs leading off the frame.
Both went to centerfield. It
was Harman's first ever.
:"That broke the ice and
sent us on our way," Tritschler
said.
National scored two more
runs in the second inning.
Tyler Atwell beat out a bunt
single and moved to second
orl a wild throw. Longhi fol-:
lowed with an RBI single up,
the middle. Harman stayed
hw[ xith a RBI single to make
it Y-o.
:In the fourth, the speedy
Kirt Raguth bunted for a hit
and came around on a single
by Breit Smith.
'losh Gnmbbs got into the
act in the fifth inning with
an RBI double.
National broke it wide
open in the sixth, tacking on
five more runs to make it


11-0. Atwell, Tyson Albert,
Hammond and Longhi all
lfad hits.
Hammond, who uses an
effective sidearm delivery to
keep batters off balance, went
the distance for the Nats.
"It was almost like the
perfect storm," Tritschler
said. "Everything came to-
gether in the biggest game -
the championship."
American finally broke
through in the bottom of the
sixth. Jared Zech had a dou-
ble and Tyler Shambora an
RBI single. The other run
scored on an error.
"We had a great tourna-
ment," said American man-
ager Jeff Lightner, whose
team finished 4-3 in the
event. "The kids played hard.
We knew it was going to be
tough."
"I"m happy for our team,
but I'm sad for them (Amer-
icans)," Tritschler said.

Looking for a deal? Check out eBay


Have you ever walked into
a golf shop and said, "I want
this and this and this and
this" and then realized that
your wants far outweigh
your cabbage?
So have I. Well, there's
hope for us.
eBay, the online auction
giant, has what you need
and plenty of it. Whether
you might be looking for a
TaylorMade r7 or a set of
Northwesterns, it's all there
for the bidding. Many people
I have talked to say that they
don't understand how to use
eBay or that they are afraid of
getting ripped off. The being
swindled part I can under-
stand, but if you have online
access and you're not watch-
ing for bargains on anything
from golf apparel to shoes to
magic tees, you should be
ashamed.
Any time a player has a
new club, his buddies want
to know if he got a deal on
it or just bought it off the
rack. If he got a deal, how
much did he pay? We are a
nosy lot we golfers.
Shrewd is the golfer who
gets the best deal on his
equipment, and if you do it


Michael Lamond
THE ZONE


right, you can save a bundle.
Usually when you go to a
golf shop, they will have what
you're looking for. However, if
you'd like a different shaft
than those in the store or
some other modification on
a club, things take a little
longer. Oh, you can buy the
club for the golf shop price
and have it re-shafted with
your choice for anywhere
from $75 and up. Or you
could find the exact same
club with the shaft you want
installed already on eBay,
usually for about 75 percent


of the original's cost. Sounds
like a no brainer to me.
There are extremely rep-
utable dealers online, too. On
eBay, each seller has a seller
rating. Selling things online
is their business, and they
have no earthly reason to
want to take advantage of
you. If you happen to have a
bad experience,' I'm willing
to bet that they will take care
of you as well as, or better,
than any of the big box
stores. Reputation means
everything to these business-
people.
So, get out there and hunt
for what you want. Being a
part of an auction is fun. It
can also be fielve-wracking
as well. You'll be surprised at
how competitive it can get
on items that buyers feel are
a steal. Try an auction on
something small to get your
feet wet a pair of socks,
an umbrella, a glove, that
kind of stuff. The more dar-
ing you get, the better the
deals get.
See ya.

Mennonite workers



still fixing Charley's



destruction

More thah 500 Mennonite volunteers have spent
thousands of hours in Arcadia area. One of their
most difficult tasks has been getting building
permits for new homes.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

While cautious Southwest
Florida residents shop for
emergency supplies and pre-
pare for this hurricane sea-
son, a group of volunteers
quietly continues to fix
homes for DeSoto County
families who were hit by
Hurricane Charley last sum-
mer and have yet to recover.
The Mennonite Disaster
Service has completed work
on 129 of 133 uninsured
homes it agreed to rehabili-.
tate at no expense, and is
ready to begin building new
homes when their standard-
ized plans are amended by
architects to conform with
Florida building codes.
"There are a lot of people
still living in FEMA (Federal
Emergency Management
Agency) trailers and waiting
for homes," said Merle
Somers, a retired Sarasota
teacher who is helping coor-
dinate the work. "We've had
problems getting permits and
almost had to shut down."
Hurricane Charley trig-
gered a short-term first
response of goods, services
and help from thousands of
volunteers after it ravaged
Southwest and Central
Florida communities, but the
Mennonite organization has
made a long-term commit-
ment to stay until the job is
done.

Starting over
The Mennonite Disaster
Service is a church-affiliated
organization based in Akron,
Pa. It operates out of five
regions four in the United
States and one in Canada -
and responds to calls from 49
local units after disasters. One
of those units is located in
Sarasota.-
"We still have a long
process ahead of us," Somers
said. "Our supply of volunteer
workers has slowed for the
summer. Many who work
their farms have gone back to
northern states and Canada,
but we;expect they'll return in
October."
Computer records at the
SPine Street Chapel inArcadia,
which is headquarters for the
DeSoto County project, show
that 541 volunteers from
around the country have
worked 3,719 days to replace
Sroofs and.repair damage so
families can move back into
homes.
"We will build 40 to 50 new
homes when our plans are
stamped and permits
approved." Somers said.
Ni"any of them will be two-
bedroom homes with one


bathroom, but we have other
plans for large families. It has
been easier to obtain permits
in Hardee County."
Skilled and unskilled work-
ers sign up through the
Mennonite Church to volun-
teer their time and services in
communities that have been
devastated by natural disas-
ters such as Hurricane
Charley. They travel to Florida
in their own vehicles and pro-
vide their own tools.
"We have a bunkhouse that
sleeps 30 and some live in
travel trailers," said Verba
Hershberger, who drove in
from Arizona with her hus-
band, Freeman, to help coor-
dinate with other area church-
es and accept applications
from families that could not
afford to insure their homes.
"When we came in late
March, there was a problem
with the individual who was
supposed to be submitting
the paperwork for building
permits," she said. "We've had
to start all over, but it should
only be a few days before our
plans for new houses are
approved."

Free, free, free
The Mennonite workers
will not accept pay. Building
materials are either donated
or paid for from contribu-
tions. Project officials arrange
for wholesale purchases from
area outlets. No fees for labor
or materials are collected
from the recipient families.
"We work with poor peo-
ple," Hershberger said. "The
homes we build are frame
and can be expanded in the
future. One of our families
has 10 children, so what we
build for them will be larger.
The Mennonite Disaster
Service has been doing this
work for 53 years."
Somers lived and worked
in Latin America for 16 years
before moving to Sarasota.
"I have a heart for
Hispanics," he told the Pelican
Press last year. "They often
have nothing and are afraid to
apply for help because of pos-
sible problems with authori-
ties about their legal status."

identified by the Mennonite
Disaster Service as communi-

OUR VIEW



Schools are no place for offensive words


here's no question that teachers and
T others who influence our children
should never address them with offen-
sive words, phrases or sentences.
We all know what the "N" word is. Using it
as an epithet in a school-related setting
should call for severe punishment.
And that is where we now are. The next
step is to determine the exact punishment.
In a recent incident in North Port, a school
bus driver, who is accused of directing the
word at a student, was sent to less than three
hours of diversity training and received a let-
ter of reprimand.
E That isn't good enough.
Before school resumes in another month,
the Sarasota County branch of the NAACP
wants every employee to undergo diversity
training and the school board to redo its pol-


icy to mandate zero tolerance toward any
employee using a racially charged word.
We almost agree with the NAACP propos-
al, although time is short to accomplish all
that.
"Zero tolerance" in this case means imme-
diate dismissal. We don't quite agree with
that. If someone utters the word, but there is
no physical endangerment, more stringent
diversity training is in order. But he or she
gets a second chance. If there is a second
offense, firing is in order.
If only it were that simple, however. The
North Port incident is a good example.
SAt Heron Creek Middle School, students
come from homes where 19 languages are
spoken. Someone needs to come forth from
each of those groups and add to a master list
of words that shouldn't be used.


Once that list is composed, then it needs
to be cross-checked against English to deter-
mine if a proper English word, for instance,
sounds like an improper word in another
language.
Perhaps that is making it too complicated.
It was not complicated when the bus dri-
ver allegedly used a well-recognized offen-
sive word. But, it became so.
First, the driver says she mispronounced a
word and it came out close to the offensive
word. Students on the bus said she then used
the offensive word. The driver denies that.
Regardless, she underwent the diversity
training. But her employment was not inter-
rupted although she will be forbidden in
the future from driving for North Port High
School.,She can, however, drive for other
North Port schools.


When children are involved in the prob-
lem, as they certainly were in this case, then
children will be involved in the search for
truth. School officials took written state-
ments from the children, including the 15-
year-old to whom the comment was direct-
ed. Taking their testimony as "fact" can be
very difficult.
Employees need protection against faulty
claims. If a young teenager has the power to
cost an unlike teacher his or her job, there
must be a way for a thorough investigation.
All of this takes us back to what the NAACP
wants and with which we concur. Every
school employee should have diversity train-
ing. And, if thereafter, it is proven that an
employee uses offensive language, then the
employee should no longer have employ-
ment in the school system.

the times


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Does your business need
help? Most do, as evidenced
by the proliferation of help-
wanted signs. The, dynamics
of our work community are
such that there is virtually no
unemployment.
Take a drive around and
you will see signs up every-
where expressing a need for
help. It doesn't matter what
kind of business, it seems, .
Last week McDonald's lad
job fairs at least at two of its
stores. I saw businesses like
Venetian Cleaners, Pit Stop
(an auto service store) and,
Perkins with a variety of signs
looking for help.
Dollar General has a huge
banner across the front of one
of its stores, while many like,
Schwinn, put the cry for help
on their roadside sign. There
iare others, like Addington
Florist, Eager Beaver Car
Wash and the.new Firehouse
Subs, all in need of help.
Bottom line there is a critical
need for workers.
Economists use as one
measure of the health of an
economy the growth of liner
ads in classified sections. Our
classified have had huge
gains in the last year, more
than at any other time in our
history. Service and employ-
ment ads top the list, but
there is activity in all cate-
gories. Much of 'this was
spurred on by the hurricane
aftermath.
The proof of the problem
is iri the unemployment rate
for. Bradenton/Sarasota
reported by the Economic
Development Committee. It
reports the rate is 3.2 percent,
or virtually full employment.
This compares to a national
average of 5 percent, which is
also very good.
The construction spurt
sapped a lot of people from
the market, much of that'
exacerbated by the hurri-
canes last year. Companies.
Like Waterford have increased
more than 30 percent in a
year. Add to that some new
business and industries, like
Lowe's and Tervis Tumbler's
big new plant, and that makes
things very tight.
The EDC did a sample sur-
vey of businesses and found
that 70.8 percent increased
the number of employees
over the last year. Our going to
three days a week was typical.
Only 16 percent reduced their


employees.
That home prices have
increased more than 20 per-
cent in a year, so that workers
are finding it harder and
harder to live here, only adds
to the situation. We have seen
it before for sure, but not like
this.
Until the economy slows
down, which is not likely in
the next 12 months, this will
be a consequence of the
times we live in.

By's Crack: A friend
displayed the American
flag on hishouse to cele-
brate the Fourth of July,
and six people came in to
deposit mail.

******
******
It is difficult to understand
how Venice Regional Medical
Center is free from, going
before the Architectural
Review Board when it is com-
pletely redoing the facade of
the hospital. For the city to
say it is minor changes is an
insult to anyone's intelli-
gence. Although it is likely to
be an improvement, the ARB
should be reviewing it.
While the hospital is saying
it is doing this to make it look
nicer, those who have been
around the hospital know
that there have been issues
with water coming in from
the outside for a long time.
This is as much about build-
ing integrity as about looks.
I think that decision dou-
bly looks bad when the mayor
is on the board of the hospi-
tal.
******
I find it unfortunate that
the American Legion looks
like it is being painted the
same color as the Moose
Lodge. It isn't done yet but
looks like it will be similar.
People might get confused
and go to the wrong one. .
When city council and the
planning commission say
they want things to look dif-
ferent, it is this sort of thing
that could be in their think-
ing. It would be so easy to
choose different colors.

The remodeled Venice
Community Center is sched-
uled to open around the mid-
dle of September, but official-
ly it will be Oct. 1, which is
when first bookings are being
allowed.
This projectstarted out
with a cost of $2 million, then
went to $2.6 million, then $3.4
million, then $4.2 million,
and finally ended up costing
$4.6. million. The hardening
to make it a hurricane shelter
added more than a million of
that, I would guess.
There will be great new

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


This skateboarder turned out just fine


Editor:
I feel the need to point out several facts about skateboard-
ing.
I have been reading some of the personal comments made
by the citizens of\Venice about skateboarders, and apparently
there are alot of misguided and misinformed people regarding .
this subject.
I have read some very stereotypical remarks, to the effect
that skateboarders are losers, troublemakers, etc. I was a skate-
boarder for along time and I am not a loser. I turned out to be
one of your local fire fighters, for 12 years now.:
As for lawsuits, give me a break. Skateboarding and not get-
ting hurt is like swimming and not getting wet. It's an accepted
part of the sport.
If you ban skateboarding in the city of Venice, then you
might possibly be setting yourselves up for a lawsuit. Ever
heard of freedom of expression?
SArid finally, let's discuss public safety. In my opinion bicycles
are just as dangerous to other citizens as skateboards. They are
bigger and moving much faster.
I do see some minor problems with some of the "street-skat-
ing" issues; however, this subject has been completely blown
out of proportion. Just because a few skateboarders conduct
themselves in an inappropriate manner does not mean that all
skateboarders will follow in their footsteps.

Englewood needs
to incorporate

Editor:
Englewood residents, do
you read the local paper, do
you keep up with the tax
monies that both Sarasbta
and Charlotte counties spend
and where?
I am so tired of reading the
money Charlotte County is
spending in Port Charlotte,
Punta Gorda, North Port,
Murdock and even El Jobean
on projects that have no con-
cern of Englewood. Do you
notice that the canal dredging
is all around Charlotte Harbor


,and Punta Gorda and
Englewood's canals, which
are in dire need, go unmen-
tioned.
Sarasota County is going to
spend millions of our dollars
to construct a replica of a out-
dated single-lane bridge to
the wealthy Casey Key. Guess
who is paying for that? You! It
goes on and on.
Bus service stops at the
county line, If you live in
Englewood you cannot get
AARP back-to-work help if
you live on the wrong side of
this crazy line. Englewood,
wake up. We are paying for
things we do not get. I bet

Wal-Mart would love that

What to do. This town:
should have been incorporat-
ed years ago. Now is the time
to get rid of the people who'
are destroying our way of life
- the Realtors, developers,
the chamber of commerce
and last, but not least, the'
commissioners on both sides
of the crazy line.,
This town, maybe city, has
grown so large that it can no
longer say we as Englewood
residents cannot afford to
govern ourselves. We can and
should.
We can manage popula-
tion growth and so many
other things that would bene-

Aren't we kings
of our castles?

Editor:
Is this America? What
country are we living in any-
way? Without property rights,
we have no rights at all.
On my own property I can
say anything I want, I can dis-
play signs that I want, I can
pray how I want. On my prop-
erty I am sovereign king. I
can't do these things on my
neighbor's property because
on his property he is king.
This is why Americans
fought the Revolutionary War
- for sovereignty. My advice


to all the politicians who can't
tell the difference between
the Constiution and the
Communist Manifesto -
move! Move to Cuba, or
China, or anyplace else where
communism is under full
swing, and have a ball.
Leave us freedom-lovers
alone. All politicians who
support abuse of eminent
domain, from local to federal,
need to be voted out as soon
as possible. Can we still do
that?

Whom do you owe
allegiance to?

Editor:
My husband and I agree on
many things. One of those
was that while we enjoyed vis-
iting friends and relatives in
Florida, we would certainly
never consider living in that
paved-over state.
Then, four years ago, on
visiting friends in Venice, and
encountering its welcoming,
convenient, small-town
ambience, we amazed our
friends (and ourselves) by
immediately buying a house.
We, like many others, were
attracted byVenice as it is.
Now, there appears to be
an ominous- movement
toward severely and negative-
ly altering Venice's ambiance
and turning it into just anoth-

city. Please consider, long and

What about bikes and dogs?
Bad cyclists. Mr. Tacy, Mr. Lupo: While you're getting rid of
the skateboarders, would you mind getting rid of the bikes and
the dogs too? Because I am aVenice island resident-and I walk
these streets many, many days, many, many hours, and not
one time has one skateboarder threatened me. They've always
been courteous. They've gotten off their skateboards and
walked around me, They've given me notice when they're com-
ing.'Can't say this about bicyclists. Bicyclists have run me down
many, many times. They are rude and obnoxious. They run red
lights. I've been threatened by dogs. Dogs have tried to bit me.
I've had to walk around their dog droppings in the middle of
our sidewalks. Right now I have huge dog prints in my brand-
new, fresh cement. Please, while you're getting rid of the skate-
boarders the poor, innocent children of our city would
you please, please get rid of the old bikers and the old dog
walkers?


Thumbs up. WO support
Waterford's plans for a new

A stink. I sympathize with
those who live in proximity to
the airport, not so much
about the noise but rather
over the jet fumes. Sound can
become background noise as
we learn to tune it out. But
noxious fumes are poisonous,
aren't there any health laws
that apply?
No joke. I wanted to thank
the Gondolier Sun for run-

pound ceramic goose stolen

tured in a magazine. People
stopped and took pictures
and said how it made their
day. One couple even brought
me flowers. I hoped it was a
joke, but no luck.
Copper caper. I want to dis-
cuss the quality of the water
in this area, in fact, in all of
Sarasota County. We have a
well-built home with copper
piping that has had three
leaks in six months. The
plumber says we can expect
more. Consequently, we are
forced to replumb the house
at considerable cost. We have
learned that this is a huge
problem all over the county.
Whole subdivisions are hav-
ing this problem. The water
division of Sarasota Cowuny
must know this. People are
becoming very irate. We
believe that the balance of
chemicals in the water is not
correct. I would like to hear
from other people who have
this problem. When we
looked in the pipe that was
replaced, the corrosion was
amazing. Of course, we drink
this water, too.
Boring. I am reading your
paper and I am bored to
death by the long comments
in Let'em' Have It. I have
always enjoyed this column,
but the long letters are too
boring. Please, limit the space,
f6r each one.
Disgusting. I'm a Venice
native. I've lived all around
the country and I'm back in
Venice. I have a dog and a
bird. People that have cats
and dogs need to clean up
after them, especiallywith the


summer heat and humidity
and the showers we have, the
smell of animal feces is not
only unhealthy, it's disgust-
ing. I believe this is a serious
health issue.
Milked. I see from your
Editor's Note that you don't
have the resources to devote
to reporting the outcome of
the dozens of arrests made.
It seems to me that it would
be more important to report
those than some of the
things you keep repeating
over and over and over. It
*says that you do the court
cases that have actually got-
ten to court. May I point out
that the ECC case is not
being prosecuted; and you
keep repeating old informa-
tion, some of it inaccurate,
about that. It's been milked
to death. The latest article
had one sentence new.
Gone North. Why do we
continue to have the
Gondolier Sun's free advertis-
ing supplement delivered
long after some of our neigh-
bors have gone up north?
Doesn't the circulation
department realize these
people go north in the middle
of April?
Wells OK. I'm calling about
the pinhole copper leaks. I
saw an article about it. Our
complex has had several of
these leaks and it has been
costing us between $4,000
and $5,000 to redo the
plumbing. We'd like to know if
there's some way-to get an
investigation going. It seems
funny that there's nobody
who has a leak who is on a
well.
Turn it over. The Nokomis
fire chief was put on suspen-.
sion. The board made men-
tion that that information is
not public record, but it is,
because they receive some
funding from Sarasota
County by contract for EMS
calls. It is time for the county
to take over the fire depart-
ment and make all the infor-
mation public about the
finances. They can continue
to volunteer with the county.
One of the problems is the
people building new houses
are not paying impact fees.
This is a great opportunity to
turn over the department to
Sarasota County.

Go away. What a joke. A
man being charged with pos-
sibly sexually abusing stu-
dents reports to the jail to
turn himself in as ordered
according to a warrant, and
the staff of the jail has to turn
him away because of a mix-
up in the paperwork. Talk
about a lack of.professional-
ism.
Hold off. They should have
waited on the beach renour-
ishment until after turtle sea-
son, which would have also
put it after hurricane season.
De-cycle. It seems :that
there are occasionally several
calls about the noise of bands
playing outside in violation of
the noise ordinance. I proba-
bly agree with most of these,
but I do wonder why there's
never been anything done
about these rebel motorcycle
riders who insist on taking the
baffles out of their mufflers. It
really irritates and hurts the
ears. I have not yet seen one
motorcyclist picked up for
this violation. It is not neces-
sary to take these baffles out.
They only do it to attract
attention and be a nuisance,
They're much louder than
any band I've ever heard.
Gridlock. The new busi-
ness-residential proposal by
the Intracoastal soiuds very
interesting. lMyWf-ajior con-
cern is how the traffic will be
affected. We already have
major gridlock during the
winter at that particular
junction due to the opening
and closing of two bridges. I
foresee even greater prob-
lems. How will that be
addressed?
Take it back. Venetians,
wake up if you think St. Mike
is doing something for you.
You are more than senile if
you do. Second, 35 feet is
high enough for most of the
buildings. And the only pub-
lic parking that we'll lose
would be for the benefit of
Mike's facilities. Third, any
law that would be written by
Jeff Boone would probably
be like giving him a blank
check. Citizens of Venice,
don't you think it's time to
take back your city from the
Realtors and developers?

Well the power has shifted

Mollie Hernandez of Aston

Running red lights is a seri-
ous problem and a danger to
all of us. A friend was telling
me of a case the other day
where he was in line at a light
with a police car next to him.
One person ran the light and
another in the adjoining lane
turned right (where it says not
to turn while red). Both of
those infractions went
unpunished.
If there ever was a good
time to-enforce red lights it is
the off-season, when pulling
people over would be less of a


traffic nuisance. I do not think
our agencies are doing nearly
enough to solve this problem.

Don't forget the huge wine-
tasting at Sharky's next
Saturday the 16th: $35 for
nice food and wine. Tickets
available at Venice Wine and
Coffee or Sharky's. The pro-
ceeds benefit the Rotary
Futures Program.

A couple of years ago Gulf
Coast Community Foundation
of Venice gave money to a
group wanting to build a well-
ness center on the Venice
High campus.
The center was to be
placed where the old tennis
courts were. It was to be used
by all the athletes in the
school, and in fact would be
used by other classes. Groups
throughout the community
pledged money or in-kind
contributions and the school
board gave its blessing and
money.
Since then the project has
gone nowhere, which is a
shame. It seems to be hung
up on volunteer architectural
work. As much as they will
have lost in cost changes, they
could have paid an architect
to do the work A resolution
needs to be made to get this
off dead center.

Distemper alert in South County


BYTAMARAA. PATZER
NORTH PORT EDITOR


A dazed and confused rac-
coon nearly caused an acci-
dent on Toledo' Blade
Boulevard last week, said
Animal Control Officer Win
Sell. Sell warns residents
about a deadly distemper
virus plaguing area raccoons.
"Theyjust stand there look-
ing stupid and walk in a cir-
cle," Sell said, describing some
distemper symptoms.
He said the raccoon's
actions Thursday were caused


by distemper, a disease that
domestic animals can easily
acquire if not properly vacci-
nated.
"In the past three weeks,
Sell said, "we've seen at least 30
raccoons with distemper."
Sell said he had to eutha-
nize three raccoons with the
disease. The sick animals have
been found all over the 103
square miles of North Port. Sell
said the major cause is loss of
habitat caused by the city's
explosive growth.
Recent rains have exacer-
bated the problem, as the ani-


mals' habitat was flooded and
raccoons started moving into
larger familial units, taking
diseases with them.
Sell likened the distemper
outbreak to the equivalent of a
human influenza epidemic. If
people live in close quarters,
he explained, viruses spread
quickly.
Domestic animals such as
cats and dogs with current
vaccinations are probably not
at risk, Sell said.
To report animal issues or
problems in Sarasota County,
call 861-6092 or 316-1081.


Smith defense wants


death penalty thrown out


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER

The defense for accused
child-killer Joseph Smith has
filed two motions that could
end the possibility of him
receiving the death penalty.
Smith, 38, is charged with
first degree murder, sexual
battery upon a child younger
than 12 and kidnapping in the
death of Carlie Brucia, 11, of
Sarasota.
He has pleaded not guiltyto
all charges.
A nationwide Amber Alert
was issued for Brucia on Feb.
2. A video surveillance tape
behind Evie's Car Wash on Bee
Ridge Road in Sarasota
showed a man believed to be
Smith approaching Brucia
and taking her by arm and
leading her away. Her body
was found four days later near
a church on Proctor Road, a
few miles away from the car
wash.


Adam Tebrugge, public
defender, has filed a motion
that would prohibit the prose-
cution from questioning
prospective jurors about their
attitude toward the death
penalty. If that motion is
denied, the defense asks a sep-
arate jury be empaneled for
the penalty phase.
The state has made known
its intention to seek the death
penalty if Smith is convicted.
The prosecution is expect-'
ed to try to disqualify potential
jurors who oppose the death
penalty, a process known as
"death qualifying." Tebrugge
argues in the motion that
"death qualifying" denies the
defendant the right to a fair
trial by an impartial jury.
Tebrugge writes the system
excludes potential jurors sole-
lybecause of opposition to the
death penalty without regard
to the ability to render a fair
and impartial verdict.

University of South Florida, is
expected to testify that
research has shown that
"death qualifying," process.
tends to select jurors that are
more likely to be conservative,
financially-secure, white men.
The jurors selected through
this process also are more like-
ly to doubt psychological
defenses, more receptive to
pretrial publicity and more
likely to consider inadmissible
evidence, the research states;
Smith is set to go on trial the
first week of November.

PAUL E. THOMPSON
Age 74, of Seacrest, FL died serenely in his
hometown of Milwaukee, WI on June 25,
2005. Devoted father to Rick Thompson,
Mary Jordahl, Ann Riley, Steve Thompson,
John Thompson, Stephanie McGrath and
Paul William Thompson. Proud grandfather
of Steven Thompson, Sara Riley, Selena
Thompson, Erin Riley, Emily Thompson,
Zachary Thompson and Haley Thompson.
Paul will be greatly missed by the rest of his
beloved family including brothers and
sisters, other relatives and cherished friends.
Paul had a passion for yardwork. His day
started with a cup of coffee and a doughnut
at the nearest restaurant. Paul never met a
stranger, there was.always new friends to
make. He was a retiree of the United States
Post Office and veteran of the Korean
Conflict, US Navy. .
Memorial Services were held in Milwaukee.
Paul was previously a longtime resident of
Venice, Florida.

Good things do come


to those who can't wait!


STAFF REPORT
If you are looking for your dream home in
North Port and don't want to wait the normal
12-plus months to move in, take a look at CCI
Homes.
Today, CCI Homes has more than 150
homes in various stages of construction in
North Port and Port Charlotte, many of which
are permitted and ready to be purchased.
Why let someone else take advantage of the
rapidly increasing home values in this area,
when you can lock in at today's prices and in
many cases move in almost immediately or
within several months?
CCI Homes has spent the past year acquir-
ing lots and pre-permitting homes throughout


the community. CCI has approximately 50
homes a month coming out of permitting,
ready to be purchased.
This unique approach takes much of the
waiting out of the building process. Permitting,
which often takes 120 days or more in North
Port, is no longer a factor because the vast
majority of the inventory of CCI homes have
been pre-permitted. Therefore, the new buyer
can move into their dream home with their
personal upgrades and colors in as little as 90
days.
Looking to move to North Port before school
starts, CCI even has some homes ready in 30-
60 days for the purchaser who just can't wait or

STAFF REPORT
e biggest attraction to Florida is not DisneyWorld,
it's the waterfront. Some will argue that it's the
weather. But they have the same weather in Arca-
dia. Some will argue it's DisneyWorld, SeaWorld and other
great attractions, but California has Disney Land and
Wilmington has Seven Flags.
Only Florida has the amazing waterfront living. Unfortu-
nately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, there
is little waterfront left for development. And God isn't
making any more this week.
It stands to reason that the dream of many who come to
the Florida coastal areas is to find their piece of the water-
front. The marketing of waterfront real estate is one of
Florida's premiere enterprises.
New kind of showing
Understanding that, many Realtors are offering their
services to show waterfront homes starting with the water-
front first. Since you only have one chance to make a first
impression, introducing a property from its most advanta-
geous view, makes a lot of sense. The Realtors are adopting
this method to show the dream before they show the real
property.
This means arriving first by boat rather than by car. If the
house is a fixer-upper but the dock and water view are
exceptional (and remember beauty is in the mind of the
beholder), then the negative attributes of the home may not
be as critical to the final decision to purchase.
This is not to imply that a ragged out house will be an
easy sale. The woman is still looking at the kitchen and the
bathrooms, however the husband is dreaming about
fishing, sailing arid boating from his own dock. It may be
easier to sell him on his interest first. The analogy of selling
the sizzle not the steak does not really apply in this case. It
is more like sending the man to shop at Home Depot while
his wife shops for a dress at Macy's.
It is the U.S. Coast Guard's requirements for a boat
operator, carrying passengers for hire, to have a captains
license issued by the Coast Guard. The broad definition of
carrying passengers for hire includes the phrase "profit
motive." It has been determined that a license is necessary
for Realtors to carry potential buyers by water to view
waterfront homes.
Additionally, insurance companies indicate that normal
pleasure boat insurance will be voided if the boat is used
illegally, that is carrying passengers for hire without a
licensed operator.
Captain Bob Arnold, executive director of Sea School, the
College of Nautical Knowledge, indicated that many

wants out of expensive rental
housing.
North Port has been growing
and developing so quickly, it
can often take over a year to
complete the home- building
process. Not with CCI Homes.
So you see, good things do
come to those who can't wait.
CCI Homes has been
building quality single-family
homes for more than three
years in the North Port market
with corporate headquarters in
St. Petersburg, Fla. They started
with a few single lots scattered
throughout North Port, and
then began to acquire large
quantities of lots in some of the
most attractive areas of the city.
CCI is committed to becoming
a partner in the growth and
development in North Port.
Offering a variety of floor
plans and elevations, CCI
Homes has something for
everyone. From the foundation
up, every detail is attended to.
The models vary from 1,300 to
2,300 square feet and all feature
three bedrooms and two .baths.
Many of CCI's homes come
standard with 9-foot-4-inch
ceilings and paved lanais.
CCI's fully furnished "Key
West" model is now open at the
comer of East Price and Naftal,
approximately one mile east of
Toledo Blade.
This model features many of
the details contained in every
CCI Home, Prospective
homebuyers can tour the
model and visit the on-site
Design Center where a resident
interior design specialist will
assist the buyer with those


tough decisions.
The Design Center gives
visitors a comprehensive look
at all of the option packages
available, along with advice on
how to tie personal preferences
together for a beautiful end
result. A professionally trained
interior designer is on staff full
time to meet with every home
buyer.
The Design Center features
flooring, cabinetry, counter-
tops, plumbing fixtures, lighting
fixtures, exterior packages, wall
colors/finishes, and door
options, all displayed in a way
to take the guess work out of
how things will look once
installed.
Rather than choosing from
small samples that rarely
represent what something will
actually look like, CCI's Design
Center has devised ways to
show you a larger picture. The
floor of the Design Center has
been ingeniously divided into
quadrants; two quadrants
feature hard wood flooring, one
quadrant tile and one carpet.
This not only gives visitors
the opportunity to see a larger
sample, but also helps to
visualize how different surfaces
will flow together.
The work tables in the Design
Center each feature a different
countertop option, again,
allowing one to see how
different style countertops
appear. All of these details have
been carefully crafted to make
sure homebuyers get the dream
home they have always
imagined..
Visit their Model Center It is
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and from 1
p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday.

Three years ago, Construc-
tion Compliance Incorporated
set out to make a name for
ourselves; to establish an
outstanding track record; to be
the best through outstanding
design, attention to detail,
superior construction and on-
time delivery.
Today, the company believes
they have achieved that goal by
earning the admiration of
buyers, developers, builders,
and Realtors alike. Whether
building a $750,000 home at
the beach, or a $125,000 home
for a young family, their
passion for building a "home"
never changes.
They believe the integrity of
their company is only as good
as the strength of their founda-
tion.
The company's modest size
and commitment to keeping
their management team closely
involved with the customer has
enabled them to adapt to
market demands and set new
trends in design.

THE TEAM

Jesse B. Battle, III,
President is a licensed general
contractor. His experience in
construction began in 1980
when he became a construc-
tion manager, building multi-
family and single family homes.
His experience also includes
an extensive background in
building renovation and
restoration. Overwhelmed with
enthusiasm for the building
industry, Mr. Battle started his
own business in 1991, Con-
struction Compliance, Inc.,
(CCD.
The company has grown


dramatically over the past two
years due to the firm's attention
to detail and on-time delivery.
Battle's vision for CCI
focuses on the company's role
as "construction managers."
CCI manages all aspects of the
construction process including,
selection, hiring, scheduling,
coordinating, and oversight of
all trade contractors. From
permit approval to certificate of
occupancy, the average
construction time for a CCI
home is only 90-days.
A Florida native, Mr. Battle
has an incredible understand-
ing of all aspects of building
throughout the state and has
developed relationships.with
sub-contractors in every
market.

John D. Wylie,
Vice President has been
working in construction since
the age of 14, growing up in his
family's construction business
in Vermont. His early experi-
ence included the construction
of condominiums, roads, .
bridges, upscale homes and
commercial buildings. Wylie
moved to Florida in the early
1990s and continued his career
in the construction industry.
Florida projects have included
commercial restaurants,
million dollar beachfront.
homes, as well as condomini-
um projects.
For the past two years, Wylie
has been responsible for
implementing and managing
the construction division of
Construction Compliance Inc.
He has developed and imple-
mented a software program
designed to track multiple
tasks on multiple projects
simultaneously. Wylie's


responsibilities include budget ing, permitting, code enforce-
management, material ment, scheduling and ensuring
procurement, hiring, engineer- project integrity.

Realtors are aware of the
requirement and have
attended a USCG approved
course, such as he offers, to
acquire a captains license for
this particular purpose.
Arnold said that the most
popular license islknown as a
6-pak, which is appropriate
for almost all small boats
carrying six or less passen-
gers. Arnold went on to say
"since we teach in 83 loca-
tions in Florida, we can live
up to our motto of 'bringing


the classroom to you.'"
He goes on to explain that
the course requires 54
classroom hours and is
usually programmed to be
taught on two full weekends
with five evenings in
between. The schedule for
these classes can be found at
www.seaschool.com or by
calling 1-800-237-8663.
In waterfront home sales,
the theory of saving the best
for last does not always
work. To a potential boat-
man; sometimes the first
impression, one that feeds
the dream, will close the
deal.

College grads face rent or buy decisions


By DAVID BRADLEY
So much for recent college
grads thinking their studies
are behind them.
Now come real world
lessons they rarely faced in
school: do they rent an apart-
ment, buy a home, or start
saving for homeownership?
Given recent press coverage
about overheated real estate
markets in certain cities, no
wonder grads and their par-
ents are skittish when it comes
to "Do I or don't I?" decisions.
The very idea of young peo-
ple owning a home sooner-
than-later based on first
incomes isn't as far-fetched as
it might sound. Banks have
rolled out loan programs to
bring ownership within reach,
although not without some
angst and sacrifices.
Even though the purchase of
a home may not be in the
immediate future, financial
experts say it's never too early


to educate oneself about
mortgage options. Gwen
Thomas of the Bank of Ameri-
ca says given the number of
loan options and the savings
that buying a home requires,
"it's worth the time to sit down
with someone to go over
where you are real estate-wise
and where you want to be in
five or 10 years."
On the plus side of owner-
ship, it's worth noting that 20-
somethings new to the job
scene really won't be in the
housing market for the
grandiose homes frequently
featured in articles. Instead, a
small starter house, condo or
fixer-upper is likely to be their
first toehold in real estate.
As banks jockey to expand
positions in the mortgage
marketplace, consumers have
seen a new wave of highly
attractive loan programs. In
addition to old standby 15- or
30-year fixed rate loans, banks


float zero or low down pay-
ments or interest-only loans
in front of consumers. Young
borrowers at the lower end of
the wage totem pole might
also qualify for other types of
assistance programs.
Relatively few homes are
owned by the younger genera-
tion. According to year 2000
U.S. Census data, only 12 per-
cent of homes are owned by
those under the age of 34. That
pales by comparison to 41
percent in the same age group
who rent.
As real estate prices contin-
ue to spiral up in many mar-
kets, there's something to be
said for entering the real
estate fray as early as possible.
Even single or low double digit
increases in value might be a
good alternative to a so-so
stock market where it often
does take money to make
money.
Ex-students don't need to


look too far for examples of
how real estate can pay off.
Home ownership is probably a
huge chunk of their parent's
* asset base. As it was for earlier
generations, ownership lends
a sense of empowerment, too.
Then there are the tax breaks
that go along with home loans.
That's to say nothing of estab-
lishing good credit ratings.
.Money spent on rent is
money shelled out on rent and
nothing more. It accrues noth-
ing toward the American
dream of home ownership.
Graduation gifts of cash (if
not already spent) can help
defray down payments. Some
couples even opt to downsize
weddings and instead apply
the matrimonial savings
toward a first home.
Yet there is a flip side to the
rent-or-buy equation.
Recent grads fortunate
enough to land full-time
salaried work can be per-


plexed by uncertainties of
"will I stay in this job" or "is
this an area where I want to
live?" Those fears can be dou-
bly disconcerting for anyone
on hourly payrolls.
Rental offers a convenient
buffer between first-job jitters
and nagging concerns about
the young earner's economic
future or style of living. There's
comfort in coming home to a
roomie as well as a second -
or third person to share
housing and grocery bills.
Young would-be home own-
ers should crack the books
again on loan options. There is
some appeal to low down pay-
ments or interest-only loans
in terms of lower out-of-pock-
et costs but accumulating
equity the amount of gain
in value that belongs to the
owner may be slower to
build.
Thomas advises young
clients to sit through home-


buyer seminars. The classes,
usually in the evenings, "are a
good way to see what's avail-
able in the local market, and
they can meet a Realtor they're
comfortable with and who
understands their situation,"
she says.
And at a time when trans-
portation costs are no small
matter, renters might be able
to live closer to work. Many
homes in the affordable scope
of possibility for young buyers
may be too far away from city
centers for a comfortable and
affordable commute.
In any event, it is prudent to
start stockpiling cash for the
inevitable march toward
home ownership. Do the
math. Add up fixed costs -
rent, insurance, etc. as well
as account for fluctuating
budget amounts for entertain-
ment and incidentals. Save
some portion of the overage.
That amount won't be missed.

Magazine, 'Where to Retire,' names America's 100 best master-planned communities


HOUSTON, TEXAS -
Retirees all over the country
are seeking well-rounded
lifestyles in great communi-
ties.
The editors of "Where to
Retire" have just made it easi-
er to find that ideal communi-
ty with the magazine's
July/August issue, featuring
'America's 100 Best Master-
Planned Communities."
Nine months ago, "Where to
Retire" editors started examin-


ing and evaluating several
hundred communities across
the nation.
Those chosen for the "100
Best" vary greatly in cost, loca-
tion and lifestyle amenities.
The selection contains com-
munities in 32 states, includ-
ing states not normally con-
sidered retirement havens.
Just under half of the devel-
opments (45) are active-adult
communities, where residents
must meet minimum age


requirements. The other 55
developments accept resi-
dents of all ages.
"Where to Retire" editor and-
publisher Alan Fox said,
"You're not just buying a home
in these communities, you are
buying a lifestyle. These mas-
ter-planned developments are
secure, well-maintained and
offer amenities like clubhous-
es, fitness centers and social
clubs. There are great options
in all types of settings: lake-


side, mountain, coastal or
desert."
Continuing the trend
toward active retirement,
most of the communities in
the "100 Best" offer a golf
course or access to one. Avari-
ety of shared facilities includ-
ing tennis courts, indoor and
outdoor pools and walking
trails are available and many
of the communities also offer
classes, computer rooms and
organized group trips. Numer-


ous communities have securi-
ty in the form of an entry gate
or other type of access control.
Several of the "100 Best" also
offer unique amenities such as
equestrian facilities.
This July/August issue
marks the fourth biennial
honor roll of "America's 100
Best Master-Planned Commu-
nities" compiled by "Where to
Retire."
The magazine, launched in
1992, is published six times


each year. Every issue profiles
top retirement towns, both
undiscovered and well-
known, and master-planned
communities that cater to
retirees.

costs $29.70. To subscribe, send

Naples. Father has been at
Epiphany for several years and
always delivered homilies that
touched the spirit.
He directed the Easter Food
blessing in a way that brought
the Eastern European tradi-
tion ,t9,ife for those \vho
attended. People came from
Sarasota to North Port for the
celebration.
Father Jacek will be missed
and we wish him well at his
new assignment.
News from the

After 16 years, Bill Willatt
has decided to join the ranks
of the retired. This kind man
has been working in the Tax
Collector's Office in the Robert

time with his family.
Everyone in the office wish-
es.him well and celebrated Bill

here at Stir the Soul most
every Wednesday night for
the last 11 months," Jeley
said. "Their generosity of spir-
it has made it possible for us
to become the most active
musical venue in Sarasota
county." -.
Their record
License to Carry was a cul-
mination of all the Gunn
Runners' experiences.
"Boca Grande is from '85,"
Coleman said.
Coleman also Trote "Court
of Love," "Cold and Lonely,"
and "With bYu." He wrote
some of the material several
years ago while gigging in
North Florida but they never
went to CD until now.
It's difficult to describe the
band's sound because it has
so many backgrounds.
Gunn wrote "Put Your
Sloney WhereYour Mouth Is,"
and "LayYour Bets Down." He
also contributes his voice to
many of the songs and even
sings lead vocals on a few
while pla.inig lead on his
prized Charvel, that has been
signed by Dickey Betts arid
Brian Johnson.
Hill and Finely lay :out a
solid foundation for the rest
'of the band. Even with the
occasional time signature
changes, Rolex keeps the
band in time like the afore-
mentioned watch.

funk and even a little rap for
the drinking anthem "Team
Drink."
Tony "Bones" Fiorentino
engineered the album out of
his studio in Nokomis. The
band chose him because of
his knowledge and keen ear
for sour notes.
"Bones has been around
forever," Coleman said. "He's
got a great ear and he doesn't
let anything get by him."
Meet the band
It's really nothing new to
the four-piece outfitiof veter-
an musicians.
Gunn jammed with the
greats at the 5 0' Clock Club in
Sarasota. He's also recorded
with members of Miami
Sound Machine, Firefall and
Robert Palmer's band. He
once performed for 50,000
people for a New Years cele-
bration in St. Petersburg with
the Telephone, Kings featur-
ing members of the Gregg'
Allman Band.
Finley has studied private-
ly with studio session drum-
mers like Ed Greene, Joe
Porcaro and Tower of Power
drummer David Garibaldi.


COURTESY OF THE GuNI I RUNNERS

He also performed at the
"Motown 25" anniversary
special and with artists such
as Bob Welch, Richard Elliot
and Dwight Yoakam.
Hill plays the six-string
electric bass and sings. Hill
served 22 years in the Air
Force and had the opportuni-
ty to work with great talent
from all over the country. He's
opened for Little Feat and
"Tower of Power". He per-
formed for the "Charlie
Daniel's Talent Round Up" on
TNN and shared the stage
with Victor Wooten in
Nashville. Hill also toured
Japan with "The Platters."
Coleman plays the
acoustic guitar and sings for
the Gunn runners. While per-
forming as an acoustic singles
act in the panhandle of
Florida, Ed formed the trio
Standard Vices and per-
formed frequently in
Jacksonville. Coleman has
also performed in the
Coleman Nash Duo and cur-
rently performs with Gunn in
the Acousti' Cats at Stir the
Soul Coffee House.

Hide the women and chil-
dren--the Gunnrunners
here.
This time they're patidng a
10-song CD with original
music featuring some of the
area's best musicians. They
are releasing the tracks with a
bang at Venice Gardens Civic
Center. The Gunn Runners
would like to initre all who
enjoy an evening of music.
Frankie Gunn, Ed
S"Scratch" Coleman, William
"Uncle Bill" Hill and Michael
"Rolex" Finley combine are
the guilty party when it
comes to running music
within Venice city limits. They
frequent many of the areas
night spots.
Coleman, an import from
North Florida brought his
lyrics and songs to Stir the
Soul Cafe. Pretty soon more
musicians followed in his
footsteps. Now the cafe is. a
haven for many of the area's,
best acts. It was while doing
the Acousti' Cats that
Coleman and Gunn decided
to form the Gtum runners.
"Actually Daney inspired
me to start doing singles
again," Coleman said. "'We
were doing the Acousti'Cats
first, then we put together the
Gwun Runners."


Gunn rips another solo during
a performance by the Gunn
Runners.

Daney Jeley, owner of Stir
the Soul said that Coleman
started playing there last July.
"There was nobody here,"
Jeley said. "It was because he
was willing to come out that
other players started to. That
was when I was able to build a
calendar up in here. When
you get musicians, of their cal-
ibur-the music scene is
pretty tight."
It's easy to see why things
have taken off musically for
the coffee shop. Coleman reli-
giously plays his acoustic gui-
tar there every Wednesday
and has a crowd just as devot-
ed. :
"I have had the pleasure of


Ed Coleman tunes up for a performance of the Acousti'Cats at Stir the Soul.

Toot-toot-tootsy don't cry


Health care providers should order flu vaccine
for their patients and Floridians should schedule
appointments for their flu vaccination now.


STAFF REPORT


Florida Department of
Health officials remind resi-
dents that it is not too early
to prepare for the 2005 flu
season. For months, DOH
officials have called on pri-
vate providers to order flu
vaccine early to ensure suffi-
cient supplies for all their
patients. So far, DOH clinics
have ordered nearly 340,000
flu vaccines for their clinic
patients in the upcoming sea-
son. Most citizens are expect-
ed to receive their flu vaccine
through their own doctor's
offices or health care provid-
ers this year.
"It is critical that private
providers seize this waning
opportunity to order flu vac-
cine for their patients and
clients. I urge Florida resi-
dents to call their doctors
now to schedule a flu shot for
later this year," DOH Sec-
retary John O. Agwunobi,


M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., said.
"We were fortunate that flu
season was relatively mild
last year, but we can't let our
guard down. Take steps now
to make sure you and your
private provider are prepared
for this year's upcoming sea-
son."
DOH estimates that it
facilitated the distribution of
almost 2.67 million doses of
flu vaccine in Florida over
the 2004-2005 flu season.
Nearly 252,000 of those flu
shots were administered in
DOH clinics around the state.
The majority of flu vaccine
was administered through
private physicians, clinics,
hospitals, long-term 'care
facilities, community-based
clinics and other public
venues.
"To avoid standing in line,
schedule an appointment
with your doctor now for a flu
shot in October, November or
December. That way, you'll


know when you're getting
your vaccine and your doctor
will know how much to
order," Agwunobi added.
In addition to vaccination,
a number of simple steps can
reduce the probability of con-
tracting respiratory infections
significantly:
Clean hands often with
soap and water, or an alco-
hol-based hand cleanser.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth.
Stay home when you are
sick and keep sick children

Happy feet can mean a
happy you. But to be happy,
your feet paradoxically -
need to be able to feel pain,
pressure or injury in addition
to having good circulation.
Numb feet can be more of a
problem than sensitive feet.
As people age, their feet
need additional attention. If
your feet are swollen, have
thick, dry and scaly callouses
- or sores that don't heal,
get medical help. These may


be signs of disease that go
beyond just your feet.
They can indicate poor cir-
culation, arthritis, diabetes or
neuropathy. These can affect
the perception of pain and
temperature and even your
sense of balance.
To maintain foot health,
begin with daily washing. Use
mild soap and warm water.
Hand test the water before
immersing your feet. Feet
can become insensitive to
hot water and you may risk
scalding. Dry them thorough-
ly-especially between the


toes. If you have difficulty
reaching your toes, ask some-
one to help you. Or if no one
is available, place your feet on
a dry towel and let your feet
and toes air dry for 20 min-
utes or longer before putting
on clean cotton socks. Foot
powder can help too.
While you're at it, check
for dry skin, cracks, corns,
callouses, sores or any change
in color. If you see any of
these, bring it to the attention
of your physician or podia-

DOH conducts survey to keep Floridians healthy


Twenty minutes of your time can
help make our communities healthier.


STAFF REPORT


The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) is urging
Floridians to take an active
role in their health by par-
ticipated in the Behavioral
Risk Factor Surveillance
System (BRFSS), the world's
largest telephone survey.
"Our health is an invalu-
able gift and this survey en-
ables us to provide the best
care and services to. ensure
that it is maintained," said
DOH Secretary John 0.


Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
M.EH. "By taking a few min-
utes to participate in the
survey, Floridians are directly
aiding DOH in its mission to
guarantee that their health
needs are met."
The BRFSS survey pro-
vides DOH with important
information about health
behaviors and conditions of
Floridians who are 18 years or
older. More than 5,000 adults
will be randomly selected to
participate in this anony-
mous telephone survey. The


survey focuses on a wide
range of health issues in-
cluding, but not limited to
physical activity, diet, tobac-
co and alcohol use, HIV/
AIDS prevention, asthma,
diabetes and cancer screen-
ings.
DOH uses information
from the BRFSS survey to
identify groups who are at
the highest risk for illness,
disability, and premature
death in order to set health
programs and policy priori-
ties. If you are contacted to
complete this survey, your
participation is vital to help-
ing DOH gather information
that will represent all Flor-


idians. About the telephone
interview:
* Home telephone numbers
are selected at random.
* Most phone calls will be
made in the evenings or dur-
ing the weekends.
* The Do Not Call lists do not
apply because this is a legiti-
mate health survey and not
a solicitation.
* The interviewer will try to
reach each phone number
up to 15 times before re-
moving the number from the
call list.
* You will not be asked for
personal information such
as your name, Social Se-
curity number, or home


address.
* You can skip any question
that you do not want to
answer. because you feel it is
a sensitive issue.
* It may take up to 15 to 20
minutes to complete the
interview.
DOH has conducted the
BRFSS survey in conjunction
with the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
(CDC) since 1986. For jnore
information about BRFSS
surveys, please visit the
CDC's Web site at cdc.

cancer patients.
Pam Mathis, The Wellness
Community's registered die-
tician, is especially excited
about this opportunity.
"Sweetbay will provide foods
that are nutritionally sound
and suitable for people in
treatment for cancer," said
Mathis. Mathis is also happy
that she and Sweetbay will
work together to plan health-
conscious menus. that coin-
cide with the nutritional ad-
vice she is providing.
"We have been looking for
a partnership like this for
a year. Now we can rely on
,Sweetbay to provide health-
conscious food we can be
proud to serve our partici-
paits," Jay Lockaby, execu-
tive director.

SARASOTA BRADENTON .LONGBOAT KEY q NEWTOWN VENICE


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I like to listen to music
while I do my walk each
night. When I put on the
headphones, I have to turn
the music up loud in order
to hear it over all the traffic
noise. Is there a better
solution?
A. A friend of mine is an avid
runner, and like you, enjoys
listening to music while
exercising., He plays his
music on an iPod which is a
particular kind of personal
listening system which comes
with ear buds. The ear buds
kept falling out of his ears so
we fit him with custom made
ear pieces. These custom-fit
ear molds can attach directly
to any pair of ear bud
headphones. Now he can run
comfortably because his
headphones stay in his ears.
Additionally, he said that he
now turns the volume of his
music down because the/
custom-fit ear molds reduce a
lot of traffic noise. Cell
phone users can really benefit
from custom molds, .which
can reduce outside noises and
allow for hands-free cell use.
If you would like to hear
more about how custom-fit
ear pieces can improve your
listening experiences, call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Center,
Inc. at 492-4327. Special
custom ear molds are
available for musicians, pilots
and motorcycle enthusiasts
too.

Keep Sarasota County Beautiful


is recruiting volunteers


Jones receives honor


Families, civic groups and
concerned citizens can make
a positive difference in their
community by partnering
with Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful (KSCB). Many op-
portunities are available, in-
cluding the adoption pro-
gram where a road, pond or
spot can be your group's spe-
cial project. Supplies to help
keep your adopted area clean
are available free from KSCB.
Your group .can also organize
a neighborhood cleanup any
time of the year or join one of
KSCB's special events like the
Coastal Cleanup oh Sept. 17 or
Bag it in Your Car Day on July


30. KSCB is seeking partner-
ship with groups and organi-
zations interested in serving
on these committees: Adopt-
Your-School Campus, Litter-
Free Day and Cigarette Litter
Prevention Program.
Volunteering is a wonder-
ful way to give back to the
community by engaging indi-
viduals to take greater respon-
sibility for improving their
community environments.
Keep America Beautiful,
the national organization,
believes every person has a
stake in their community,
including a stake in the com-
munity's litter problem. Re-


search and experience tell us
that litter attracts the eye and,
at times, litter attracts MORE
litter. We have found that a
clean community discourages
littering and illegal dumping.
Proper handling of litter and
waste in a community raises
the standards and expecta-
tions of everyone.
Contact Sarasota County's
Call Center at 861-5000 and
ask for Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful to learn more
about volunteer opportuni-
ties targeted to fit your needs
or to register your group and
help Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful.

County holds sea turtle workshops


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Natural
Resources and Parks and
Recreation staff have sched-
uled a series of three sea turtle
education workshops to raise
awareness of the importance
of protecting these magnifi-
cent creatures. The beaches of
Sarasota County are impor-
tant nesting habitat for several~
species of threatened and
endangered sea turtles. We
have the highest density of
sea turtle nesting on the Gulf
Coast of Florida. With this
distinction comes responsi-


ability.
The workshops will cover
basic sea turtle biology and
habitat ecology, including
threats to our local sea turtle
population and the beaches
they depend on. The work-
shops will be held at 1 p.m.,
July 13, at Phillippi Estate
Park; 7 p.m., July 14, at
Shamrock Park; and 9 a.m.,
and fuly 16, at Lemon Bay
Park. Each workshop covers
,the same material and will
last approximately one hour.
with plenty of time for ques-
tions and answers from the
public.


A successful nesting season
requires the cooperation of
all. Sarasota County residents
who. cannot attend the work-
shop, but would like free sea
turtle educational materials or
awareness tags to place on
beach furniture, may contact
the Sarasota County Call
Center at 861-5000 and ask for
sea turtle protection.
Sea turtles are protected by
the law, but laws alone can-
not help a species survive. If
you see someone tampering
with a nest or harassing a sea
turtle, contact the nearest law
enforcement agency.

Can you tell me exactly where the real home is?


KEITH BACKHAUS
iUJEK tG V6 S1NT
Venice is two cities. Like
the rest of Sarasota County,
Venice is really two cities of
older adults living a different
life.
The largest city is living the
Florida dream. They live in a
nice home, safe neighbor-
hood with a social network.
They are in good health and
connected to family and
friends. They enjoy the beau-
tiful sunsets and access the
amenities available.
But there is a significant
minority of elders wvho are in
trouble. This second city of
older adults is struggling;
despite a lifetime of hard
work, they live on the edge of
a financial precipice.
These elders are devoted
to family and country but
they are mostly living a bad
dream. These elders live side
by side of the other group of
active healthy elders. They
could be only a few streets
away. But for sure they live
within your community,
maybe on your street. We
often do not recognize them
or unintentionally ignore.
their soft call for help .
About five years ago we
started training many com-
munity groups and service
clubs to be on the look out for
this second city of older
adults.
We asked them to become
SCOUTS. The program, is
designed to systematically
locate and identify high-risk
older adults, particularly,
those who are isolated, living
alone, and in need of some
type of assistance to maintain
their independence. The
SCOUTS became the eyes
and ears for locating these
elders.
They referred these folks to
us so we could copnect them
with community resources'
and Friendly Voluiteers to
help them live with dignity
and independence ini their
own homes. You see, just like
the rest of us, sometimes we
are embarrassed or afraid to
ask for help. We think we
might get into trouble and we
are not sure whom we can
trust with a family crisis. We
do not want to inconvenience

There's an old saying,
"Home is where the heart is."

feel they will never get sick or

to force the issue.

know many people don't
think they want to live with a
lot of older people, but some
of those are pretty nice too.

Nothing in this life is perfect.

the lengthy recovery, not to
mention pain that is part of the

Dear Praying,
Your prayers may be
answered! A new technique
is now available for worn-out
knees, called the Zimmer
Minimally Invasive Solutions
(MIS) Quad-Sparing Knee
Replacement. Each year,
more than 300,000


Americans (most over age 65)
undergo total knee replace-
ments because of arthritis,
injury or a lifetime's worth of
wear-and-tear and that num-
ber is growing dramatically.
MIS knee replacement
Using modified tech-
niques and instruments, sur-
geons can now place the
same clinically proven
implants used in traditional
knee replacement surgery,
but through a much smaller
incision and without cutting
through key tendons and
muscles. In traditional
surgery, the surgeon makes a


12-inch incision down the
front of the knee and the ten-

Aging IQ
What does it really mean
to be old. If youthink you
know, you might be sur-
prised. In "What's Your Aging
IQ?," you're asked 28 very
enlightening questions that
explore some of the com-
monly-held misconceptions
about aging. Here is a sam-
pling to test your whites.
Questions
1. If your parents had
Alzheimer's disease, you will
inevitably get it. True
or False?
2. Most older people are
depressed. Yes or No?
3. The older a person gets,
the less sleep he or she
needs. True or.False?
4. Heart disease is a much
bigger problem for older
men than for older women?
True or False?
5. Most older people live
alone? True or False?


6. Do people get grumpy
as they age? Yes or No?
Answers
1. False. Alzheimer's dis-
ease gets more common as
people grow older, but it is
not a normal part of aging.
The overwhelming number
of people that get AD have
not inherited the disorder.
2. No. For many people,
their later years are an active,
rewarding time. Depression
can be caused by medicine,
physical illness or stress.
Once the cause of depression
is known, the problem often
can be treated.
3. False. In later life, it's the
quality of sleep that changes,
not total sleep time. Older
people may have trouble
falling asleep or staying
asleep which can cause them.
to wake up tired. But this,
Stood, can be treated.

What's your aging IQ?
Dear Savvy Senior,
My 49-year-old husband has
become age phobic. He has
stuck in his head that all old
people are depressed, grouchy,
live in nursing homes and don't
know what day it is. Part of his
phobia stems from his mother
who has dementia and his
father who recently died in a
nursing home with Alzheimer's
disease, which he's convinced
he will too. I recently heard of a
new aging IQ booklet that helps
inform people what normal
aging is about. Can you tell me
about this and would this be
good for my husband to read?
Realistic Rita

Dear Rita,
- Lot's of people like your
husband have misconcep-
tions about getting old. But,
considering what he's gone
through with his parents, it's
pretty understandable. The
booklet you're asking about
is called "What's Your Aging
IQ?," a free booklet published
by the National Institute on
Aging (NIA) that presents
mini-stories and quiz ques-
tions to test your knowledge

At a foot spa in Oregon, a tuckered-out traveler treasures the tingles


BY SUZANNE MARTA
GUEST WRITER

After just 'a few moments
of rolling my feet against the
smooth black river rocks in a
basin of steaming water at the
Barefoot Sage foot spa, the
day's stresses begin to melt
away.
It's remarkable just how
relaxing a soothing foot bath
and massage can be. I was
skeptical at first, typically pre-
ferring the occasional luxury
of a full-body massage.
A gift certificate from a
friend brought me to the
Barefoot Sage for the first
time; now I attempt to shoe-
horn a visit into even the
tightest of itineraries to the
Northwest.
The Barefoot Sage doesn't
do pedicures, instead focus-
ing on pampering your feet
through therapeutic baths,
masks, salt rubs and massage.
The foot spa, which now


has two locations in Portland,
opened nearly two years ago,
combining Western and
Eastern traditions of healing
rituals for the feet.
Co-owner Cuqui Mazal
says the spa's popularity is
driven by a greater awareness
of foot health.
"It's like taking care of the
wheels of your car," Mazal
said. "If you don't take care of
your feet, it affects every-
thing."
Focusing on one's feet to
treat aches and other ail-
ments isn't a new concept.
The art of reflexology, which
uses reflex points on the feet
as a mirror image of the
body's organs, dates to
ancient Egypt, India and
China.
Barefoot Sage therapists
regularly incorporate reflexol-
ogy into their treatments, but
even Western-style massage
of the feet and lower legs
eases tension throughout the


body.
The Barefoot Sage is.
designed for relaxation, but
also for socializing. The room
is filled with overstuffed
couches and chairs, arranged
in conversation areas.
Unlike many spas, where
clients are whisked away into
private rooms, visitors to the
Barefoot Sage often come in
groups of two or more. The
Barefoot Sage has a diverse
crowd, drawing mother-and-
daughter duos, groups of a
friends and even a knitting
group.
"It's a place where people
can just really relax and catch
up," Mazal said.
Since you're undressed
only from the knees down,
the spa is also popular among
customers who may feel anx-
ious about disrobing for a
full-body massage.
Spas that focus only on feet
are a rarity, but foot treat-
ments are available at many


spas and resorts in major U.S.
visitor destinations.
Susie Ellis, president of
Luxury Spa Finder magazine,
said the popularity of sandals
have made many people
more conscious of their feet.
"As baby boomers are get-
ting older, they're looking for
more than just painted toe-
nails," Ellis said. "Ninety per-
cent of spa menus now have
at least one foot treatment."
Traditional massage and
facials still top most spagoers'
wish lists, but demand for
foot treatments is growing,
said Hannalore Levy, founder
and executive director of the
Day Spa Association based in
Union City, N.J.
"The feet take a lot of
abuse," Levy said. "Taking
care of them is one of the
most important things
because they carry your
whole body."
On this visit to the Barefoot
Sage, we've opted for Happy


Feet, a soothing salt-water
bath, followed by a 30-minute
lower leg and foot massage
and a paraffin dip.
Other packages offer
longer baths and massages,
special clay masks and exfoli-
ating salt rubs. You can also
combine any two treatments
to create your own package.
After several minutes of
soaking in the indigo basin
sprinkled with aromatic,
crimson rose petals, I lift my
feet one by one as a therapist
douses them with a pitcher of
icy water laced with pepper-
mint oil. I plunge them back
into the steaming bath, and
my legs and feet tingle with
an invigorating sensation.
After about.20 minutes of'
soaking, it's time for the mas-
sage.
Ticklish feet need not
worry. The therapists move
gently along the lower
extremities, working out
kinks and soothing the body


with raw sesame oil.
I melt into the cushy chair
and sip a cup of freshly'
brewed tea from the spa's
menu. In the chair next to me,
my best friend is peacefully
napping, her feet dangling in
the warm bath and a smile on
her face,
Across the room,
Beaverton resident Gwen
Issacs is enjoying a similar
treatment, quietly chatting
with her sister Ginger Hilow
of Strafford, N.H.
"They make you feel like a
queen for a day," Issacs says.
By the end of the appoint-
ment, my feet are softened,
and slipping them into strap-
py sandals ,seems somehow
cruel.
Muscles throughout my
body, even my perpetually
tight shoulders and neck, are
loose and relaxed.
My only worry now: How
long before I get to come
back?

Medicare preventive ser-
vices
Dear Savvy Senior,


My. husband and I have
made our health a priority. We
exercise regularly, eat right and
remain trim. And, as recom-
mended, we go in for all the
required visits and tests. So far
we have been blessed with an
insurance company smart
enough to recognize the bene-
fits of early screenings. But I've
learned that Medicare doesn't
cover annual visits to the doctor
and I'm worried that when we
hit 65 we'll lose coverage for
some of the routine screenings
that are one of the cornerstones
for good health. What can you
tell me about this? Is Medicare
going to be there? Screened
in Scranton'

Dear Screened,
Not to worry! While your
annual physical will have to
come out of your own pock-
et, Medicare will pick up the
tab for some key preventive
services that can help you
stay healthy.
Preventive health service
on your body is like preven-
tive maintenance on your
car. It helps them both run
better and last longer. That's
why Medicare is working to
make it easier for its benefi-
ciaries to get more preventive
care services. Here is a list of
some of what's paid for:
Colorectal cancer
screenings for all people with
Medicare. Tests that are cov-
ered are: fecal occult blood
test (once every 12 months),


flexible sigmoidoscopy (once'
every 48 months),
colonoscopy (every24
months if you are at high risk
or every 10 years ifyou are
not), and barium enema
(every 24 months if you are
at high risk).
Mammography for '
breast cancer screening.
Available to all women once
every 12 months.
*Pap smears and pelvic
examination for cervical can-
cer screening. Available to all
women and is covered every
24 months, unless you are at
high risk and then it will pay
for it once every 12 months.
Prostate cancer screen-
ings. Available to all men
every 12 months and
includes the digital rectal
exam and the prostate spe-
cific antigen (PSA) Tests.
Diabetes self-manage-
ment training, glucose moni-
tors, test strips and lancets.
Glaucoma testing done
by a licensed eye doctor who
is legally allowed to provide
this service in your state.
Available every 12 months to.
people at high risk for the
disease (diabetes, family his-
tory of glaucoma, African
American).
Flu and pneumonia
shots, and Hepatitis B shot.
Bone mass measure-
ments to detect osteoporosis.
Available every 24 months.
Talk to your doctor to see if
you qualify.


Medicare coverage
The preventive services
that are listed are covered by
Medicare Part B, but not
'completely. Medicare in most
cases will pay 80 percent,
which means you'll pay the
other 20 percent of the
approved amount (or a co-
payment amount) after pay-
ing the annual Part B
deductible. In some cases,
however, the test may be
fully covered.
SAlso, many of these pre-
ventive services are for peo-
ple who are at high risk for
the particular disease. As to
what constitutes high risk is a
medical assessment, that will
have to be made by a doctor.
But it usually takes into
account you age, health and
family history.
For more information on
Medicare preventive ser-
vices visit
medicare.gov/Health/Overv
iew.asp. Medicare also
offers a free publication
called "Medicare Preventive
Services To Keep You
Healthy" (publication
10110). To order a copy, or
for any questions call
Medicare at (800) 633-4227.
Survivors benefits
Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you tell me about
Social Security benefits if
my husband dies? I have
never held a full-time job
outside the home since we


married, and I'm worried
about what will happen to
me, if something should
happen to him. -Worried
Wanda
DearWanda,
.It's a good concern, but if
something should happen to
him, Social Security can
probably help you! Many
people don't know that Social
Security pays survivors insur-
ance, also known as survivors
benefits. In fact, today Social
Security pays monthly sur-
vivor's benefits to .about 7
million Americans, almost 2
million of whom are chil-
dren.
How it works is when
someone who has worked,
and paid into Social Security
dies, survivor benefits can be
paid to certain family mem-
bers. The number of work
credits a person needs to be
eligible depends on their age
at the time of death. But,
nobody needs more than 40
credits, which is 10 years, of
work.

Who are the survivors?
Social Security survivors
benefits can be paid to:
A widow or widower. They
can receive full benefits at
full retirement age (currently
age 65), or reduced benefits
as early as age 60. A disabled
widow/widower may receive
benefits as early as age 50.
A widow or widower at


any age if they take care of
the deceased's child under
age 16 or disabled, who
receives Social Security bene-
fits.
Unmarried children under
S18, or up to age 19 if they are
attending elementary or sec-
ondary school full-time. A
child can receive benefits at
any age if he or she was dis-
abled before age 22 and
remains disabled. Under'cer-
tain circumstances, benefits
can also be paid to stepchil-
dren, grandchildren, or
adopted children.Dependent
parents at 62 or older.
How much do
survivors get?
The amount of survivors
benefit will depend on the
earnings of the person who
died. So, the more Social
Security taxes a person
pays, the higher the bene-
fits will be. The amount a
widow or widower receives
also depends on the age
they are when they start
receiving benefits. Here's a
percentage breakdown of
what you could expect:
Widow or widower full
retirement age (currently
age 65) or older, 100 per-
cent.
Widow or widower age 60
to 64, about 71-94 percent
Widow or widower at any
age with a child under age
16, 75 percent.
Children, 75 percent.

trist.
Consider the use of foot
lotion. It can make your feet
feel wonderfully soft and
help prevent cracking but
don't apply it between toes
or on any. sores. In those
locations, lotion may retain
moisture and create prob-
lems.
Toenail trimming can be
a challenge as we get older.
To cut toenails, you need to
see well, have feeling in your
feet and be able to safely
reach your toenails. If you
have difficulty with any of
these, see a podiatrist for
professional toenail trimming
as well as a checkup.
Footwear is important too.
In addition to a daily change
of socks, you need shoes
that are comfortable and, 'at
the same time, offer good


support and protection.
Comfort is far more impor-
tant than style.
If your feet are swollen,
elevate them when you sit
down. Have a footstool
handy at your favorite chair
and use it when watching
TV or reading. On the other
hand, don't sit too long i4
one position and don't cross
your legs.
This can aggravate circula-
tion problems. Stretch your
legs and get up and walk
around every half hour or
so. Your feet were made for
walking and, with a little
care, they'll go on doing their
job foy a lifetime!

hold name ever since the
success of his one-man
Broadway show Isn't It Ro-
mantic in 1988. He is nation-
ally recognized for his com-
mitment to the American
popular song, both celebrat-
ing its art and preserving its
legacy for the next genera-
tion. Tickets: $75, $65, $55.
