Scuba business on verge of sinking


The owner fears the beach renourishment project
could be the death of his business, which special-
izes in dive trips to hunt for sharks' teeth.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Summers are usually a joy-
ous time for Capt. Steve
Thacker of Florida West
Scuba School. Much of his
dive gear is rented out, char-
ters to prime shark's tooth
fossil areas are full and there's
hardly ever a lack of business.
Hurricanes and red tide
have turned those smiles into
frowns, and now the diving
business owner fears the
Venice Beach renourishment
project could drag him all the
way under.
The sand barge is about to
relocate to his prime spot a
mile offshore to dive for
shark's tooth fossils.
"They want to stage right
where I'm diving," Thacker
said. "They're telling me, for
whatever environmental rea-
sons, they can only stage
there. I'm not buying it. ... I
gotta go where the fossils are.
This is the big (summer),
tourist attraction."
Business is down nearly 33
percent compared to last
summer. Thacker grossed
almost $30,000 the first, 22
days of luly in 2004, but that
total has dropped by more
than $9,000 die same 22 days
this year.
Restocking the beach isn't
the sole reason business is
down, Thacker said. Hurri-
cane Dennis arid red tide.
both have made diving condi-
tions miserable even at his
prime spot for finding fossils.
Human control
Weather is beyond human
control, but deciding the
staging area for the sand
barge, which collects and
pumps the sand, through
pipes onto Venice Beach, is.
Thacker would like the barge's
staging area to be up to a
quarter mile north or south of
its planned spot when it relo-
cates within the next couple


of weeks.
,That is not a possibility,
according to Andy Cum-
mings, project engineer for
the U.S. Army Corps of En-
gineers. Strict permits ap-
proved by the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection call for those exact
coordinates.
Once the barge moves, it is
expected to remain in its new
location until the beach pro-
ject is finished sometime in
mid-September.
"There really are no other
alternatives," Cummings
said. "We have it all the way
pinned down to exact coordi-.
nates all to meet DEP permits.
... That's just the way it is. He
has the luxury to move, we
don't. You have to look at this
rationally."
Where to dive
There are no other prime
diving spots for the fossils,
Thacker said. Turbidity -
clouded water because of
sediments combined with
fewer fossils has ruled out
nearly every other spot.
The dark, tea-colored
water appears to be caused by
the high levels of stormwater
nmoff into the Gulf of lexico,
the aftermath of Hurricane
Dennis and lingering red tide,
Some of the tons upon tons of
sand pumped onto 'enice
Beach also will work its way
back into the water and cover
up many of the fossil beds,
Thacker said.
Turbidity caused by the
sand project also is hurting
business, according to Thack-
er. DEP permits allow for the
sand to cloud the water up to
1,000 feet offshore, and scuba
divers not using the charter
boat are coming back from
the beach saying they cannot
see anything.
. Thacker, a retired hydroge-
ologist with the Ohio En-
vironmental Protection Agen-
cy, believes this sand cloud is


Concern arises over


bulletproof vests

City management accuses police of spreading
"false information" about the replacement of
recalled body armor for patrol officers.

In an exchange of memos,
both City Manager Marty
Black and Deputy Police
Chief Dan McGoogan accuse
some members of the Venice
Police Department of imply-
ing the city has ignored recall
notices on body armor sus-
pected of failing to stop a bul-
let.
Once cost estimates are in,
the city manager will bring
the final price tag to council
members, he wrote in an e-
mail update. Black also wrote
in the Wednesday memo that
"false information (is) being
spread by some individuals in
the police department."

have progressively gone sour

moving beyond the 1,000-
foot boundary.
"My observations in the
early part of the project noted
that the turbidity seemed to
be under control,' Thacker
said. "But in the past few days
things have gotten pretty bad.
... Naturally, there will be no
divers diving on the beach
when this happens."
This is the busy season for
Thacker. Each charter boat
trip can take 12 divers, and
every:seat is reserved through
Aug. 1.
Some of those seats might

Community Housing Trust makes its debut next week


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

An ambitious affordable
housing mechanism will be
introduced to Sarasota Coun-
'ty next week. Whether elected
officials embrace the concept
and allocate enough annual
funding to help it produce an
adequate supply of homes
for service workers remains to
be seen.
On Tuesday, the Commun-
ity Housing Trust of Sarasota
County will be explained in
detail to a county commission
that has already pledged to
contribute an estimated $10
million for startup costs when
North Port lots seized for
nonpayment of taxes are sold.
"This is one of the tools
communities use to preserve
the affordability of housing,"
said Larry Arnold, a county
planner who specializes in
affordable housing. "It is an
independent, community
based organization that will
work with the county and
cities."
In a nutshell, the trust will
use public and private funds
to buy parcels of land and
lease them on a long-term
basis (typically 99 years) to the
qualified buyers of single-
family homes, duplexes,
townhouses or apartments
that may or may not be built
by the organization.
Buyers will hold a deed on
their homes, plus land leases,
and pay taxes on both. They
can only sell to other qualified
buyers at a price fixed by for-
mula, but the homes can be
inherited by family members.
The prograri is up and run-
ning in a number of commu-
nities.
Some of them include:
Burlington, Vt.; Duluth, Minn.;
Rochester, Minn.; Durham,
N.C.; Albuquerque, N.M.; and
San Juan Islands, Wash. Two
cities that recently bought into
the concept are Chicago, Il.
and Austin, Texas.
The trust will function as a
private, nonprofit 501(c)(3)
corporation under Internal


Does this sound like you?


Revenue Service codes. Its
directors will negotiate for
relief from local impact fees
and the other soft costs that
tend to drive up housing
prices.
"It will operate separately
from the county and cities,"
Arnold said. '"The county
commission initiated this last
September when it asked a
SCOPE (Sarasota County
Openly Plans for Excellence)
steering committee to form
the trust."
SCOPE of work
SCOPE is a nonprofit orga-
nization of area residents that
identifies issues of public con-
cern, forms study groups to
'intensively analyze available
information, then publishes
reports with backup data that
include recommendations for
solutions.
The organization has a
$450,000 annual budget, a
staff of eight full-time and
part-time employees, and ac-
cepts contributions from local
governments, foundations,
corporations and individuals.
The county's annual contribu-
tion is about $127,000.
In 2001, SCOPE waded into
the affordable housing debate
when it voted to study the dif-
ficult issue and elevate the
subject to a high community
priority. The recent spike in
real estate costs has made it
impossible for many workers
with moderate incomes to
own homes.
If county and city elected
leaders provide more than just
one-time contributions to the
Community Land Trust, it is
anticipated that a stream of
grants will become available
from federal and state agen-
cies, plus foundations and
other philanthropic organiza-
tions.
On June 14, the county
planning commission made
an unanticipated proposal that
could help sustain a serious
affordable housing program
when it recommended that a
portion of the county's 1-cent
local option sales tax should be

annually allocated to it.
The tax generates about
$27 million a year and is
scheduled to expire in 2009. If
voters agree to extend it, and
the county allocates 1/10th of
the penny to affordable hous-
ing, it would pump an addi-
tional $2.7 million a year into
the program.


Along with a package of
comprehensive plan update
recommendations, the plan-
ning commission's housing
proposal will be forwarded to
the county commission for
consideration later this year.
It would require the commis-
sion to reevaluate sales tax
revenue expenditures..


A Florida law known as the
Sadowski Act currently pro-
vides the county with some
limited annual funds to pro-
vide down payment assis-
tance for about 100 families,
subsidize repairs for about 50
others, and offer grants to
developers who build afford-
able 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
Partnership Program.

School board still delaying referendum vote


Though they agree they have to ask taxpayers
for more money, school board members are still
struggling with how to sell the idea to them.


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
-STAFF WRITER

.One thing, at least, was
decided at Friday's School
Board Referendum Workshop:
In March there will be a vote
on the continuation of the
property tax referendum.
S But that was about all that
could be agreed on. In fact,
the amount of the tax referen-
,dum may be left in the hands
:of the taxpayers.
The initial four-year school
property tax referendum was
passed in March 2002. It add-
ed a property millage rate


increase of one mill, which is
$1 for every $1,000 of a prop-
erty's assessed value. For ex-
ample, for a $200,000 home a
mill equals $200 (not counting
the homestead exemption).
In the past three years this
referendum has brought in
more than $98 million for the
Sarasota County school sys-
tem. According to the school
board, however, this hasn't
been nearly enough to im-
prove the schools to the level
they should be at, let alone
fund future needs.
The initial purpose of this
referendum workshop was to


discuss extending the referen-
dum for another four years
and to figure out a method of
accomplishing that. Things,
however, did not go very
smoothly.
Too big to swallow
Board members were
shocked at some of the
numbers Superintendent of
Schools Gary Norris put to-
gether for them.
According to Norris, to im-
prove the schools to the level
that the board has set, a total
of $242,093,790 will be need-
ed over the 2006-2010 period.
That's far more than would
be brought in by the one mill
that board members want to
renew, and left the board
members confused and dis-
couraged.


"This begs the question,
how much is enough, and
shows that one (mill) is not
enough," board member
Frank Kovach said.
Some of the expenses that
helped rack up these large
numbers are increasing
teacher's salaries by $6,000 or
more, adding an extra 30 min-
utes to the school day, lower-
ing class sizes and improving
many existing programs.
"I'm just trying to give our
kids an even break," Norris
said.
A board divided
SAfter the sting of such sharp
numbers faded, the board
refocused back on the renewal
of the one mill. This brought
out heavy disagreement as,
well. .-


Some members were un-
sure if it was fair to ask tax-
payers to give more than they
already had. Others were
avid supporters of the tax
continuing.
"I say let's approve the one
mill, put it on the ballot, and if
the people approve it then we
made the right decision," John
P Lewis insisted.
Kovach was not convinced.
He said that although the
board members are in charge
of looking out for the schools,
they also have to be fair to tax-
payers.
The difference of opinion
itself concerned Dr. Kathy
Kleinlein, board chair.
"If we go into this vote
divided it is almost certain it
will not pass," Kleinlein plead-
ed.


A compromise was reached
as the board decided to turn to
the community for help.
A conclusion of sorts
Over the next several
months the board will be
finding ways to get input
from taxpayers. The goal is
to hear- from new voices of
the public who in the past
have been "non-responding
voices."
The board will be running
several plans Norris has de-
vised past taxpayers. Some of
the plans will retain the full
one mill, while some will
lower it to nearly half a mill.
The idea is to get feedback
as to what is acceptable to
the taxpayers and then to
draft the ballot question
accordingly.

Board of directors for Boys & Girls clubs of Sarasota

County named Southeast's high-performance board


"It is a pleasure to serve
with such a dedicated, hard
working board," said Reid.
"They truly give of their time,
talents and treasure."
Dr. Richard Rehmeyer is
the chair of the 40-member
board, who meets monthly
to manage and chart the
direction of the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Sarasota County.
"This year, we are celebrating
our 35th anniversary of ser-
vice to Sarasota's youth and
this honor is one each of
our board members cherish
and appreciate," said Dr.
Rehmeyer. "We are commit-
ted to serving 10,000 youth
in Sarasota County by the
year 2010 and this award will


inspire us to work even
harder to accomplish this
goal."
A large delegation of board
members will receive the
award onAugust 18 inAtlanta
from Boys & Girls Clubs of
America President Roxanne
Spillett. The Sarasota Board
has been recognized twice
previously as the state of
Florida winner but this is the
organization's first National
Award.
The Boys Club of Sarasota
opened its Fruitville Road
facility in 1970 with a first-day
membership of 2,000 young-
sters. In 1992, the organiza-
tion broadened its reach and
changed its name to the Boys


& Girls Clubs of Sarasota
County. Now, with three free-
standing units the Lee
Wetherington Boys & Girls
Club on Fruitville Road, Roy
McBean Boys & Girls Club in
Newtown and Gene Mat-
thews Boys & Girls Club in
North Port and five in-
school programs, this pro-
gressive group provides edu-
cational, social and sports
activities for 6,200 young
people each year. Their goal
is to serve 10,000 youth by
2010. Now that the Lee
Wetherington Club is fin-
ished, the Clubs are working
on plans to build another
unit, the Robert and Joan Lee
Boys & Girls Club, in Venice.

Water supply options go beyond the Peace River


Sarasota County must work with its neighbors
to develop new public water sources. Decisions
about future projects will be made through
the Peace River Authority.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


An adequate public water
supply for future Sarasota
County residents is a relatively
easy subject to talk about
because there are only a hand-
ful of untapped options still
available. But it's also difficult
to plan because of the produc-
tion costs and environmental
factors.
In September, the county
commission will attempt to


look beyond its expensive
Peace River commitment and
identify the future water re-
sources it will have to pursue
so people who live here 20
years from now will be able to
sustain their lives.
Surface water bodies such
as Shell Creek in Charlotte
County, Cowpen Slough and
Myakkahatchee Creek in Sara-
sota County, and the Little
Manatee River in Manatee
County will be among those
discussed. They will be stud-


ied by water experts in the
next few years.
So, too, will a regional de-
salination plant that filters
brine from Gulf of Mexico
saltwater and safely dis-
charges the residue. The My-
akka River, which up until
now has been politically off
limits because of environ-
mental considerations, will
also be considered.
"There is too much water
in the Myakka River," said
Greg Jones, the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District's resource develop-
ment director. "It comes from
agricultural runoff. We should
tap the river to get it back
where it belongs, and are
doing a minimum flow study."


None of these future water
supply options is a mystery
to industry experts and elect-
ed officials who want to deliv-
er treated water at an afford-
able price, but to most con-
sumers they are little more
than names that appear in
fine print on local maps.
What has changed since
Sarasota County unilaterally
negotiated water supply con-
tracts with Manatee County
more than 35 years ago is the
shift to regional planning
through a four-county organi-
zation known as the Peace
River/Manasota Regional Wa-
ter Supply Authority.
Most people call it the
Peace River Authority or sim-
ply the authority. What makes


it so important is that permit-
ting agencies such as the
Water Management District
grant money to the authority
rather than its individual
member counties.
In other words, the "go-it-
alone" water philosophy Sara-
sota County pursued for many
years is history, and from now
on it will have to work cooper-
atively with Charlotte, DeSoto
and Manatee counties on a
regional public water supply
plan.
"We want the authority to
go after sources for the four
counties," Jones said, "and
make water available through
a regional loop system. Its
next project should be to ex-
pand the Shell Creek Reservoir


in Punta Gorda and increase
the daily supply to 10 million
gallons."
A great deal has been
reported about how Sarasota
County will shift away from
its dependence on Manatee
County for up to 14 million
gallons of water a day, and to-
ward the Peace River when a
plant expansion project pro-
vides about 13 million gallons.
The transition from Mana-
tee County to the Peace River
is essentially a trade-off, but
when coupled with other local
sources such as Osprey, Uni-
versity Parkway and Venice
area well fields, it will allow
Sarasota County to deliver

A very good START in red tide fight


STAFF REPORT

New tools that can help
the public manage during red
tide outbreaks are now avail-
able throughout Southwest
Florida, according to the
grassroots group Solutions To
Avoid Red Tide.
START is an organization
formed 10 years ago by Long-
boat Key residents that is
dedicated to promoting ef-
forts and funding programs
to help monitor, control and
mitigate red tide in an envi-
ronmentally sound manner.
Today the group has chapters
along the Southwest coast,
including in Naples, Bonita
Springs, Sanibel Island and
Boca Grande.
"There are a number of


tools available that the public
can use to learn more about
red tides, how they affect our
environment and how resi-
dents can help," said START
President John Connor.
"There are new public health
telephone hotlines, new
START-produced videos that
explore red tide, red tide fact
cards and ways people can
get involved in helping scien-
tists understand and possibly
control this phenomenon."
Red tides are caused by a
naturally occurring micro-
scopic alga that is always
present in the Gulf of Mexico.
Scientists are still trying to
understand, why this alga
undergoes a population ex-
plosion and blooms, some-
times bringing dead fish to


RED TIDE UPDATE
The red tide along the Florida Gulf coast does not appear to
have been affected by the passing of Hurricane Dennis.
Concentrations in Sarasota Bay have diminished from high last
week to low to medium this week, showing a positive trend. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute reports that the
bloom has maintained its position from southern Pasco County
south to Sarasota County.
Respiratory irritation and dead fish continue to be reported
throughout the area, depending on local bloom conditions and
the direction and intensity of the wind.
Light winds and winds blowing off-shore should minimize
adverse effects, while strong on-shore winds will bring adverse
impacts on shore. It is important to note that, as atmospheric
and oceanic conditions change, algal bloom conditions change
as well, making forecasting very difficult.
For status of the bloom, and closed shellfish areas, see
www.floridamarine.org, or call Mote's information phone sys-
tem at (941) 388-4441 and press 6 for local red tide information.
If you need immediate assistance, call the Marine and
Freshwater Toxin hotline at (888) 232-8635. It is staffed 24 hours
a day, seven days a week.

to reach the Red Tide Health
Hotline. This free hotline is
staffed 24 hours a day, seven
days a week by University of

who can help answer health-
related and general questions
related to red tides.
Watch it The Red Tide
Alliance members (START, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission and
Mote Marine Laboratory,
along with the Florida De-
partment of Health and other
groups) have produced four
short videos that answer
many red-tide related ques-
tions, including 1) What is
red tide? 2) What are the
health and seafood issues
associated with red tide? 3)
What are we doing about red
tide? and 4) How can I help?
The videos can be seen at
thq South Florida museum
in Bradenton, Mote Aquar-
ium in Sarasota and the Pier
Aquarium in 'St. Petersburg.

BOSS from page 1A
answer is yes, butit's expected
to change within the next two
years because of manage-
ment reorganization and a
retirement.
At Tuesday's city council
meeting, Black will unveil the
city's proposed 2005-2006
budget, which includes plans
to create a. General Manager
for Public Services to have
oversight of both the water
and sewage departments, as
well as everything under pub-
lic works roads, garbage
collection, recycling and
parks. The salary for this posi-
tion would be between
$80,000-$100,000, plus bene-
fits.
The city manager also will
present statistics showing
how he's attempting to rein in
city spending and staffing lev-
els that have outpaced popu-
lation growth.
In the last decade, Venice
has increased the number of
city employees by 20 percent,
but the population has only
grown by 4.5 percent, accord-
ing to Black.
The city has 346 full-time
employees this year, com-
pared to 289 in 1994-95.
Venice's population has only
grown by 850 residents during
that same period, according-
to Black's statistics.
"I know wewent through a
period where we were under-
served, but we cannot contin-

Public utilities
Tirns out that the job of
Venice Utilities Manager is
too big for current manager
Chris Sharek, who was pro-
moted to that role nearly a
year ago when the cityfired all
wastewater management and
hired a private company. The
August 2004 purging of super-
visors eliminated 16 positions
and left 13 employees without
ajob in order to make up for a
$187,000 budget deficit.
Sharek was the only one
who remained and was put in
charge of the entire utilities
department despite his inex-
perience with personnel and
management issues.
Black said this new posi-
tion would handle all man-
agement and personnel is-
sues with the utilities depart-
ment. Sharek, who makes just
more than $70,000 per year,
would remain and focus on
infrastructure improvement
issues, the city manager said.
"(Sharek) has excellent
engineering skills, but we've
asked him to do a lot and it
has been difficult for him,"
Black said.
Public works,
As for Venice Director of
Public Works Larry Heath, the
longtime leader will retire
within the next two years and
leave a void where his experi-
ence once was. Heath's annu-
al salary is about $85,000 per
year.
Black said it's important to
create the general manager
position and hire that person
now so. he or she can learn
from Heath over the next two
years.
Heath is eligible to retire at
any time, Black said, but has
given assurances he'll work
two more years.
"He says he's having fun, so
he isn't going to leave early,"


Black said.
New funds
Other than creating a new
boss, the most significant part
of the city manager's budget
presentation is how Black
wants to create funds to pay
for extensive infrastructure
improvements and future
beach renourishment pro-
jects.
The start-up amount for
each of these ongoing funds is
$150,000.
Venice had its federal
funding cut and then rein-
stated for the current beach
project, expected to be fin-
ished in about a month. The
project, expected to cost $17
million when finished, had
about $12 million come from
the federal government.
Black tells council it
shouldn't expect to see that
money a decade from now
when more sand is needed at
Venice Beach.
As for infrastructure im-
provements, the city has
never set aside "significant
fund pools" to cover the cost
of major improvements to
water and sewage lines. There
has been enough money for
repairs and minor improve-
ments, but Venice has never
undertaken "substantive pro-
'jects" without having to ob-
tain loans.
Projections for the upcom-
ingyear have about $1 million
for utility repairs and im-
provements.
"Establishing a fund to
meet the replacement needs
of an infrastructure that has
aged beyond efficient opera-
tion in some sections of the
city is a fiscally frugal method
... (that eliminates) the need
and expense of a bond issue,"
Black wrote in his report.

VESTS from page 1 A
Fraternal Order of Police
representative Paul Murphy,
who has led contract negotia-
tions, said the union has been
happy with the city's response
to the vest issue.
In the union's opinion, city
management addressed and
moved to correct the problem
once it was brought to their
attention.
"That issue has been ad-
dressed, and they're getting
new vests for the officers who
have the defective ones,"
Murphy said. "Police Chief
(Jim Hanks) told me that last
week. ... I believe that they
have addressed the issue."
Messages were left for both
Black and McGoogan asking
what specifically was being
said, especially since union
officials made no complaints
when interviewed Friday.
Speculation could be the
local Web site for FOP that
lists 14 officers as having de-
fective vests as of July 1, even
though city management ini-
tially ruled that no officers
were issued recalled vests.

plains that the company,

ed replacement for these
vests, but "there have been no
reported failures of these
vests after exhaustive testing."
Replacements were issued
by the company for any vests
containing up to 31 percent of
the material Zylon because it
can unexpectedly fail, accord-
ing to its Web site, second-
chance.com.
The Venice police vests
have a maximum of 26 per-
cent Zylon, according to Mc-
Googan, creating the need for
replacement. The vests will be
ordered once all officers
needing one have been fitted
for a new one, McGoogan
wrote.

Replacement of Calle
Fla. Bridge to begin Aug. 1
Construction will begin


Aug. 1 to replace the Calle
Florida Bridge near the inter-
section of Canal Road and
Calle Florida on Siesta Key. It
is one of eight short-span
bridges on Siesta Key that are
being replaced by Cone &
Graham Inc. of Tampa, due to
their age and deteriorating
condition.
Work on the Calle Florida
Bridge is expected to last
approximately six months,
but because it provides the
only access to the adjacent
neighborhood, one lane will
remain open at all times.
Temporary traffic signals will
be installed to direct traffic,
and access to property will be
maintained at all times.
Residents are urged to use
caution around the bridge
while construction is under
way.
Improvements to the
Siesta Key bridges include
aesthetic enhancements, re-
placement of bridge seawalls,
installation of sidewalks on
both sides, and replacement
of connecting water and
sewer lines. Two bridges have
already been replaced: the
Givens Street Bridge in May
and the Azure Way Bridge in
July. Three other bridges are
currently under construction.,
Work on the Contento
Drive Bridge, near the inter-
section of Cape Leyte Drive
and Contento Drive, began
March 7 and is expected to be
completed in September.
Construction on the Primrose
Path Bridge, between
Featherbed Lane and
Treasure Boat Way, began
April 18 and is expected to be
finished in early August.
Replacement of the Higel
Avenue Bridge between Ralph
Street and Givens Street
began the first week in June
and is expected to be com-
pleted by the end ofAugust.
Work on the final two
bridges, Treasure Boat Way
East. and Treasure Boat Way
West, should begin this fall.
The entire $5 million con-
struction project is being
funded by the infrastructure
surtax penny sales tax), and
is scheduled fot completion
in February 2006.

Legion team

eliminated

by St. Pete

STAFF REPORT

The No-Vel American
Legion Post 159 "B" team
came a long way this summer.
Although the locals went
1-2 in the Southwest Area
Tournament, they still fin-
ished above .500 (8-7) and the
players grew up under fire.
"We made some huge
strides by the end of the
summer," coach Jeff Callan
said. "They got used to the
way we play ball (at the high
school). We have an AAU
team this fall and keep the
kids playing and learning."
Post 159 lost its tourney
opener Thursday, came back
and won a game Friday be-
fore losing again and being
eliminated Saturday.
The tournament was
played at East Lake High in
Tarpon Springs.
Post 159 lost its opener
Thursday to St. Petersburg,
8-4. Zack Montalbano pitch-
ed well in defeat. Donnie
Albert and Wade Swikle had
hits for the locals.
Next came a 6-3 victory
over Lakewood Friday. Ryan
Angell threw 5-1/3 innings of
quality ball. He allowed four
hits and picked off five run-
ners. Josh Dallam threw well
in relief. Brad Schmehl led
the offense with three hits.
Jackson Boone and Mike
Atamanchuk had two hits
apiece. Andy Speth had an
RBI single and played well in
the field at second base.
It was deja vu all over again
Saturday at No-Vel fell to St.
Pete again by 8-4. Anthony
Colavita had three hits.

Venice Juniors so close but yet so far


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice Little League
Junior (13-14) All-Stars are
certainly strong closer.
In the District 16 Tourna-
ment, the Juniors lost their
first game but then rebound-
ed to capture their next four
games and become champ-'
ions.
The same thing happened
in the Section 6 Tournament
held Friday and Saturday at


the Braden River Complex in
Bradenton.
Venice lost its first game
Friday night, but then came
back to win both of its games
Saturday.
The only thing different
was that Venice didn't win a
championship this time
around.
Three teams finished pool
play at 2-1 Braden River,
Venice and Naples. Cape
Coral was 0-3.
The tiebreaker was total

runs against. Braden River
won by a scant run, as it only
allowed eight runs over the
three games while Venice
gave up nine. Naples was a
distant third.
Braden River earns the trip
to the State Tournament.
Venice used a miracle rally
to record its Saturday sweep.
The locals trailed Cape
Coral 6-2 entering the bottom
of the seventh inning in
Saturday- afternoon's second
game. Venice rallied for five
runs.to win the contest, 7-6.
Anthony Colavita started
the explosion off with a dou-
ble. Matt McBreen then sin-
gled. Zach Lewis lofted a sac-
rifice fly to cut it to 6-3. Jimmy
Dethloff recahed on an error.
Kyle Collison had a two-run
single to make it 6-5 and
Ryuan Kruass had a single to


left to plate the tying and
winning runs.
Ryan Krauss was the win-
ning pitcher in relief. Andy
Speth threw three innings
before giving way to Colavita.
Earlier Saturday afternoon,
theVenice Juniors dismantled
Naples, 16-0.
Winning :pitcher Brent
Krauss fired a three hitter,
striking out six. He also had
two hits. Dethloff and Ryan
Bohley also had two hits
apiece. Ryan Krauss had three
hits.
Venice scored two runs in
the second inning without
the benefit of a hit.
A five-run fourth broke the
game open; Dethloff and
Ryan Krauss singled. Brent
Krauss doubled over the left
fielder's head to make it 3-0.
Tommy Haskett had a RBI


single to make it 4-0. Bohley
then sent an opposite field
triple to plate two more.
Bohley ended up crossing on
an error.
Venice suffered a tough 5-3
loss to host Braden River
Friday night.
The score was tied 2-2 until
the bottom of the sixth when
Braden River rallied for a
three spot.
Venice made things inter-
esting in the seventh as the
first three batters reached
base. Ryan Krauss had an
infield single and McBreen
and Haskett drew walks.
Colavita drew a bases-loaded
walk to force in a run. Three
Venice batters fanned to end
the threat.
Collison pitched well in
defeat and deserved a better
fate.

Tournament. The other three
teams in the pool finished
1-2. Venice was awarded
second place on the tie-
breaker of fewest runs
allowed. Venice allowed 14
runs, Naples 16 runs and
Manatee 18 runs.
While second place was
nice, this was a winner-take-
all tournament.
"You have to hand it to
South Fort Myers," said
Randy Smith, the acting
Venice National manager fill-
ing in, for Terry Tritschler.
"They beat three good
teams."
The game that the Venice
National coaches and players
will lose sleep over was Sat-
urday' morning's one-run
loss to Naples.
Venice played catch-up all
game long and had a golden
opportunity, to win it in
regulation.
Entering the bottom of the


sixth, National trailed Naples
6-4. The locals rallied to tie
the game and loaded the
bases with one out. The major
threat ended with a strikeout
and the runner from third
nailed tning to score on a
wild pitch.
The Nationals also left the
bases loaded in the second.
"If we could have won that
game, it could have spring-
boarded us into our last game
against South Fort Myers,"
Smith said. "You're always
better coming off a win. Even
if we won that, we still had to
beat South Fort Myers."
Venice looked flat against
South Fort Myers. The Nats
could only muster five hits
off winning pitcher Juan
Ramon. The best chance
came in the sixth when Nick
Longhi, Zak Harman and Josh
Grubbs strung hits together
t6 load the sacks. Ramon got
the final out to end the Nats'
season.
Tyler Atwell and Longhi

Congratulations to Tiger
Woods on winning another
Claret Jug last weekend.
Did you know that Tiger
has also won every one of
Jack Nicklaus' "final" majors?
Quite a feat.
A lot of people are very
quick to anoint Tiger the best
ever, but let's take a look at
the facts. While it's true that
Tiger is only eight "majors
behind Jack (seven if you
count U.S. Amateurs), that
only tells part of the story.
If we look just a little
deeper into their majors
records we find a startling
statistic: second-place finish-
es. I know that second place
is considered the first loser,
but Jack finished second in
majors 19 times; Tiger has
done it only twice. Jack has
16 top fives in the British
Open alone, for heaven's sake.
In his career, Jack had an
amazing 58 second-place
finishes and another 34
thirds. That is called domi-,
nance, especially when Jack
was playing against some of
the finest golfers ever, in-
cluding Tom Watson. Lee
Trevino, Arnold Palmer, Gary
Player, et al.


fifth for a little breathing
room, but Venice kept clawing
as Grubbs doubled home
Harman to make it a 6-4
ballgame.
Naples only needed three
outs in the s\ixh to clinch the
victory, but the Nationals put
together a rally. Btert Smith
led off with a single and Anvell
followed with a double.
Longhi received an inten-
tional walk to load the sacks.
Harman, who has been Mr.
Clutch in district and the
sectional, hit a single to plate
two runs, making it 6-6.
Grubbs worked a walk to
load the sacks. There was still
just one out. However, the
Nats could not push across
the winning run.
Naples scored a run in the
top of the seventh and held
on.
Things looked sunny for
Venice National following its

Babcock Ranch sold to a Palm Beach developer


A West Palm Beach golf
course developer buys
the 91,000-acre parcel
in eastern Charlotte
County, despite the
efforts of preservation-
ists to put ranch in
public hands.

BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

A West Palm Beach-based
golf course developer backed
by an investment firm has
bought the 91,000-acre Bab-
cock Ranch, the parties in the
deal announced Thursday.
The Babcock Florida Com-
pany has signed a contract to'
sell all its stock and its ranch
to Kitson & Partners and
Morgan Stanley.
The sale brings an end to a
17-month campaign by a
coalition of environmental,
groups and local govern-
ments to get the state to ac-
quire the entire ranch from
the family.
However, Syd Kitson, presi-
dent of Kitson & Partners and
a former NFL football player,
said the private acquisition
offers new opportunities for
the public to own part of the
ranch in the future.
"I want (public acquisition
supporters) to know this is
really very positive," Kitson
said. "We have the ability to
preserve a very significant
portion of the property."
. The proposal would call for
the state and local govern-
ments to acquire preservation
tracts and allow development
on other portions.
"Our goal is to put together
a four-party agreement, be-
tween us, the state and Lee
and Charlotte counties," Kit-
son said. "Our goal is to pre-
serve as much of this property
as possible, to maximize pres-
ervation." '
Wide open
The terms of the sale were
not disclosed by either party
in the deal.
However, Kitson, in re-.
sponse to a reporter's ques-
tion, confirmed his company
at least met Babcock's price of
$480 million. The deal also,
satisfied the family's require-
ment that the buyer purchase
the Babcock Company's
stock, not just its land.
The Babcock family had
insisted on that requirement
to avoid a hefty estate tax that
could have been levied on
family members if the IRS
considered the sale a distribu-
tion of assets.
Kitson said his company
also agreed to pay Babcock's
corporate taxes. That will give
the Kitson company the abili-
ty to sell off tracts of land
without posing a tax liability
for the Babcock heirs, Kitson
said.
The state had been block-
ed from.acquiring.the corpo-
ration's stock by state laws
that allowed the state to buy
onlyland.
"The barriers of the tax
issues are no longer there,"
Kitson said. "The door is wide
open. ... Hopefully, the state
will participate."
Kitson said the amount of
land to be preserved will be
determined through future
negotiations with local and
state governments.
Also, Kitson's company
plans to continue operating
the business enterprises that
currently exist on the ranch,
including ecotourism, cattle
ranching, sod farming and
rock mining.
Kitson said the Babcock
family, during three months
of intense negotiations, ad-

Located east of State Road 31 and south of State Road 74,
Babcock Ranch consists of 92,600 acres, about 88 percent of
which lies in southeastern Charlotte County with the rest in
northern Lee County and includes the10,000-acre Telegraph
Cypress Swamp and acres of.pine forests.


amantly insisted the new
owner maintain the those
operations and retain the
ranch's employees.
Kitson said he met with the
employees and was im-
pressed with their profession-
alism. He cited the way the
staff maintains the ranch's
forests, swamps and mead-
ows to eradicate exotic vege-
tation.
"They are an outstanding
group of people," Kitson said.
"They do everything the best
and that's a group of people
we're gping to keep."
History
The ranch was established
in the early 1900s when
Pennsylvania lumber mag-
nate Edward Vose Babcock
bought the first parcels of
land. His son, Fred C. Bab-
cock, managed the ranch,
from the 1930s until his death
in 1995.
His heirs have been work-
ing to sell or develop the
ranch ever since. ,
In 2002, the family applied
for comprehensive plan
changes to develop a city of
up to 50,000 residents in a
southwestern quadrant of the -
ranch. But the plans were put
on hold after county planning
departments raised questions
about impacts.


Kitson confirmed that the
southwestern quadrant may
be the first to get targeted for
development.
"There are portions of this
property that are more open
to development than others,"
he said.
Dick Cuda, president of
Babcock Florida, said it was
"difficult to part with some-
thing that has been part of
our famil faiy so long."..
' However, he also called the
sale a new opportunity "o
achieve what Babcock Ranch
has always stood for -
responsible business enter-
prise enabling the manage-
ment and preservation of
land that is important to the
environment and uniquely
Florida."
Cuda said the family
always hoped to sell to some-
one dedicated to the land, the
"wonderful people who so
able managed it" and "envi-
ronmental stewardship."
"We are all deeply heart-
ened that Kitson & Partners
and Morgan Stanley have
pledged this commitment,"
Cuda said..
'All the growth we need'
The Kitson company will
begin meeting with Lee and
Charlotte county staffs to
determine areas that could be

developed and areas that
should be preserved.
Kitson said his company
also will discuss with the
counties their interest in the
ranch's water resources, in-
cluding the 10,000-acre
Telegraph Cypress Swamp.
Also, the ranch has permits
to withdraw 70 million gal-
lons per day from wells for
agricultural purposes.
The extent of public access
to natural areas for recreation
remains to be determined,
Kitson said.
"There's great hunting,
fishing, equestrian opportu-
nities," he said. "Is there going
to be public access?"
The Babcock Preservation
Partnership launched the
drive to publicly acquire the
ranch afterWayne Daltry, who
is now executive director of
Lee County Smart Growth,
organized a summit of some
two dozen environmental
and government leaders.
Initially, Daltryp expressed
confidence that the coalition
would succeed in acquiring
the entire ranch.
"Oh, well," Daltry said
glumly Thursday, after hear-
ing the news of the sale.
However, he said he remains
"optimistic" that the public
could still acquire 80 percent
of the ranch.
Daltry pointed out that
both Lee and Charlotte coun-
ties would have to agree to
allow Kitson to build a city in
a rural area. Most of the ranch
is currently zoned; for only
one unit per 40 acres.
"I do know both counties
think we have all the growth
we need," Daltry said.
Other coalition members
were surprised by news of the
sale, said Liz Donley, an event
organizer for the partnership.
She said partnership mem-
bers had .relied on rumors
that the highest offer the
Babcock family had received
was for only $200 million.
"We didn't realize -we.had
significant competition," she
said.
However, Donley added
that the group may still work
to support the preservation of
environmentally sensitive
areas of the ranch.
Donley cautioned, howev-
er, that some areas are within
a conservation district that
makes them unavailable for
development. Those tracts
should not/ be publicly
acquired, shl said.
However, conservation
easements could be, pur-
chased to protect wildlife cor-
ridors and other areas, she


suggested.
"I don't see us dissolving,"
Donley said of the preserva-
tion coalition. "I see a shift in


our mission."

Meat deal shows dangers of door-to-door sales


The seller of $550 of meat has promised a refund
and said he will "be taking care of" the salesman
who didn't follow company policy.


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

A local woman who wrote
a check for $550 for about 30
pounds of assorted meats
sold door-to-door may get a
refund.
Paul Bonanza of Bonanza
Wholesale Meats Inc. of St.
Petersburg said Friday that he
wants to "make it right" for
Nora Wiedenman, 77, of
North Port, who bought the
meat from Chris Miller last
week. Bonanza said Miller is,
an independent contractor
who just started working for
his company.
Wiedenman bought about
30 pounds of assorted meats
for $550, and the date stamp-
ed on each individual pack-
age was believed to be an
expiration date.
Bonanza said the date on
the packages of meat bought
by Wiedenman is a produc-
tion date, andfnot an expira-
tion date. He said he had
empathy for her because peo-
ple who buy meats at a regu-
lar grocery store are taught to
look for "best use" or "use by"
or expiration dates.
Bonanza, an ex-depuiy
sheriff from Broward County,
said he wanted his business
to be different from other
door-to-door meat sellers.
"I want to make people
happy, and unlike other com-
panies, I want repeat sales,"
said Bonanza.


Old habits?
He says he's tough on dri-
vers who rip off customers,
bring drugs into the ware-
house and don't leave boxes
and invoices with customers.
"These guys come and go
so quick," ,Bonanza said
about drivers.
He said he does back-
ground checks on all drivers.
However, he is in the process
of conducting the back-
ground check on Miller. Bo-
nanza said Miller does not
have a driver license and had
someone driving him around.
Bonanza says all of the
companytrucks are equipped
with inverters to keep the
meat cold, adding that most
companies use dry ice, or
evep'frozen soda or water
bottles to keep their products
frozen.
"I've spent a fortune to
outfit all my trucks," Bonanza
said, because he does not
want anybody getting sick
from one of his products.
"I will be speaking with,
Miller today, and will be tak-
ing care of him," Bonanza
said. "He might have some
old habits."
He said Nliller came to him
from Superior Gourmet
Foods of Clearwater.
Civil matter
Bonanza requires all of his
drivers to leave the product
boxes with the clients, and to'
give them invoices. In the

"The packages we sell have

Applegarch said, adding that
some of their clients want

PULP CAPPING
Pulp capping is a technique used by dentists to restore a tooth to
health when decay gets dangerously close to a vital pulp. The pulp is
the inside portion of a tooth which contains nerves and a blood supply.
If the decay goes all the way to vital pulp, a medicating material is
placed directly on the pulp after all decay has been removed. This
stimulates the pulp to heal by producing a protective "bridge" under
the medication. If the decay is deep but has not yet touched the pulp, a
medication is placed at that point which stimulates the remaining
dentin to remineralize and harden. The tooth is then restored with a
conventional filling.
If either procedure fails, root canal therapy will be necessary. Why not
then do root canal procedures immediately? The answer is that root
canal treatment is more involved, takes longer, and is more costly -
and in some situations, may not be advisable. It"s a judgment call that
only your dentist can make.

Capri Salon stylist Colleen Phipps-Sinibaldi takes the first snip of Katelyn Kraayenbrink's hair. Katelyn will be donating her hair to
Tyler Seian through Locks of Love.


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL.
STAFF WRITER


Katelyn Kraayenbrink
seemed surprisingly. opti-
mistic and excited, consider-
ing that she was about to have
all of her long hair cut off.
"I think I'm gonna like
short hair," she decided at the
Capri Salon.
' Katelyn had been planning
to cut her long mane and
donate it to Locks of Love for
some time now, but when she
met Tyler Seian she knew she
couldn't wait any longer.
"I decided to do this before
I met him," she explained. "I
was going to wait 'til my hair


got longer, but he's ready for it
now."
Katelyn recently took a job
as a nanny for the Seian fami-
ly. The two young boys that
she is now taking care of both
have Down syndrome. Tyler,
who is 6, has a rare condition
in which he has lost all of his
hair to the disease.
"I think he looks cute
bald," Katelyn joked.
After making this big deci-
sion, Katelyn contacted Locks
of Love and let it know that
Tyler was the one she wanted
her hair to gb to.
"It'll be weird if I have to
brush his hair, cause it's my
hair," Katelyn said.


Katelyn is a college student
at Sante Fe Community
College in Gainesville who
came back to her hometown
of Venice for the summer.
Along with donating her hair
to Tyler, she has also been
communicating to him
through sign language.
"We are really proud of
her," Pat Kraayenbrink said as
she watched her daughter
wait arLiously in the salon
chair.
Katelyn considers this to
be a late birthday gift for
young Tyler.
"His birthday is in July, but
it will take a bit longer than
that to have the wig made,"


she said.
Katelyn chose Capri Salon
because of its program with
Locks of Love.
"We are the place to go for
this," Capri Salon stylist
Colleen Phipps-Sinibaldi ex-
plained.
Capri Salon will cut your
10-inch or longer hair for free
if you agree to send it to Locks

dren who have gone bald

OUR VIEW




Peace River's health concerns us all


r he news was not unexpected.
According to the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection, the
Peace River and the Charlotte Harbor estuary
are officially impaired. In other words, they
are getting sick.
The question is, what are we going to do
about it?
DEP Secretary Colleen Castille has signed
an order identifying the Peace River, the
Myakka River and Sarasota Bay among the
water bodies that are labeled impaired. The
objective is to get total maximum daily load
pollution limits set.
Much of the pollution comes from devel-
opment and agriculture stormwater run-


off, human and animal waste, farm and lawn
fertilizers and mercury from automobile and
power plant exhausts.
There is no way we can stop that type of
pollution even if we put a moratorium on
growth. What we must do is limit it and try to
control the runoff and the methods by which
.it reaches our waterways.
DEP wants to set a limit on the degree to
which these pollutants are introduced into
the waterways. When that happens, it can
adopt an action plan to develop projects that-
would, hopefully, cut the pollution rate.
The Peace River's problems originate as far
north and east as the lakes region near
Lakeland and the Lake Hancock and Saddle


Creek water sources. Nitrogen and phospho-
rus overwhelm the samples taken from near
Lakeland and many samples have depleted
oxygen levels and algae.
Water from Lake Hancock and Saddle
Creek is also lacking proper oxygen and is
loaded with nutrients. A third of the samples
taken from the Peace Creek Drainage Canal,
which empties into the Peace River, test pos-
itive for fecal coliform bacteria that exceed
state standards.
There is no doubt we have a problem.
It is difficult for us to understand how,the
DEP on one hand, can declare what amounts
to a semi-state of emergency regarding the
Peace River, ard then side with phosphate


companies and approve mining on thou-
sands of acres of land in the headwaters of
the waterway.
We applaud DEP for its somewhat belated
recognition of problems the state faces in
cleaning up the the Peace River, a major
source of water locally, and one on which our
dependence is increasing.
We challenge the DEP to hold phosphate
companies to a higher standard when it
comes to operating in and around our drink-
ing water supply and to hold them account-
able for any "accidents" that may occur.
At the same time, DEP must follow up on its
study of pollutants and their source and devel-
op a plan to control dangers to our water.


Is it all




worth it?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

My brother Richard is. a
well-known economist. His
specialty is ': . .nheis
a consultar wto ~"te and
tvorld leader .: ...is J ..
authority on schools ~id
their funding.
-He has been a professor at
Ohio University for more than
25 years, a member of
President Reagan's Economic
Council and, for many years,
a school. board member in
Athens, Ohio. This year he
published a book on the great
waste in spending at the col-
lege level. (It didn't seem like
great way to help job security
to me.)
Recently Steve Harner told
me he had seen a column by
Rich on this subject in Forbes,
Rich sent me a copy, which
outlines his thoughts on the
subject.
SHis premise is that in gen-
eral colleges are spending
huge sums of money on fancy
buildings, athletic teams and
their goodies, research, non-
instructional staff and salary
increases. Yet only 21 cents on
every new dollar goes towards
the mission of education.
For instance, he shows that
in 1976 there were three non-
faculty workers per 100 stu-
dents; today the number is
six. He also points out that 40
percent of the enrollees are
not graduating not exactly
a great record.
In his book he shows the
output is not improving even
though the spending every
year far exceeds the increased
cost of living. He also points
out that states that spent large
sums of money on universi-
ties had less improvement in
income per capital. As Rich
knows, higher taxes mean less
private sector spending.
So, does any of this relate
to what the Sarasota School
District is doing by spending
so much money? I don't think
by any stretch it's an apples-
to-apples comparison, but
they are at least both fruit.
The huge amount of addi-
tional money spent in the last
three years (more than $100
million) has not produced
better results. Some claim
that better results won't hap-
pen for five years. I don't think
that much money shouldn't
have some immediate im-
pact, and anyway it has been
three years of spending
already.
To add to this, the district


plans on a 12.5 percent
increase for next year. ,Of
course, our district is growing
fast and there are circum-
stances, like class size compli-
ance, that are affecting it, but
nonetheless spending is
seemingly out of control.
The cost of living is up 2 or
3 percent. Add another 3 per-
cent for enrollment increase
and that still leaves a lot in
between..
There appears to be no
restraint, just calls to add pro-
grams and spend a lot more.
County Administrator Tim Lev
tells his :stfflto:hold depart-
ment spending increases to a
couple of percent; we don't
see that kind of control in the
schools. ..
I should note that we
should be proud that our dis-
trict was one of only a dozen
or so districts that received an
A rating (which we also had
before we added the one
mill). But I think my brother's
work would show throwing.
money at something doesn't
necessarily bring better
results.
We needed some help, no
doubt, but we also needed
restraint and have yet to see
any. I hope we see some real
soon.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS,


Thirty years later, it's the same old Venice


Editor:
I am writing in response to your article, Skateboards need to
be regulAted, which appeared in the July 13 online edition of
the Venice Gondolier Sun.
The attitude of many retirees in the Venice area toward the
younger citizens ofVenice is one of oppression. I was born and
raised in Venice (Venice High Class of 1976) and recall in my
youth numerous occasions where we were constantly made to
feel like troublemakers, and how dare we interfere in the
"quiet" lives of the retired.
Being out and about in the evenings was discouraged quite
openly. Now it seems that harmless daytime activities, such as
riding your skateboard, are also discouraged and, if some had
their way, would be made illegal.
There are always bad apples in every crowd, but once again
some citizens want to take the easy way out and apply a ban to
everyone, instead of dealing with individuals.
I think the focus should be on responsibility, and making
sure those who trespass and otherwise break the law are held
accountable. Do not pass additional measures aimed at whole-
sale groups of good people who are not causing problems, but
are simply trying to enjoy life in their own unique ways.
I now live inWisconsin, and am rewarded by the fact there is
more tolerance here with respect to our youth. The attitudes
expressed in the article are one of the reasons I leftVenice, after
graduating, with no desire to return.

AARP off target
Editor:
I would, like to comment
on some of the "hard facts"
offered by the spokesman for
AARP on Social Security. Their
interpretation shades the
facts to support their position
instead of being objective.
1. AARP says if you take
money out of Social Security
and put it elsewhere, you end
up with less money in Social
Security. AARP neglects to
mention this is exactly what
Congress has done for the last
several decades.
2. The costs to administer
Social Security, while a low
percentage of the monies col-
lected, are quite a large sum
around $4 billion. Con-
sidering most of Social Se-
curity's business is depositing
the same amount of money in
people's accounts each
month, the cost per transac-
tion is high.
3. AARP mentions reserves
that will cover any shortfall
from 2017 to 2041. There are
no reserves or trust fund.
What this really means is that
the government will take
money from the taxes we pay
(general revenue) and make
up for all the borrowing it has
done.

1P6SAD YOUTOGON


LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHAT, IF ANYTHING, WOULD
EXTEND THE ONE-MILL SCHOOL TAX? CALL US


We'd skate at a real s

Weenie park. Venice Skate Park is a weenie skate park for lit-
tle kids. No wonder why the guys that really skate don't use it -
there's no challenge. Go to Sarasota or North Port and you can
see what a real skate park looks like. It's dug in the ground, with
concrete runs and bowls. Venice skaters need a real park, and if
they'd get one maybe they'd use it. The one they have now is a
little weenie park for kids. Concrete blocks on a tennis court.
Come on Venice, we can do better than that for the kids. As far
as outlawing skateboarding on the Island forget it. Let's out-
law wheelchairs instead.


Changes needed. Where
has my city gone? As a life-
long resident, we see new
high-rises going up every-
where. The new bridges were
going to-help control the traf-
fic for many years. Well, more
and more buildings go up,
more and more traffic, so
we're back to square one
again. The area over byVenice
High School, Venice Elemen-
tary School and Babe's
Plumbing is getting to be a
blighted area that needs to be
improved: better sidewalks,
better lighting; the road needs
to be widened and resur-
faced; maybe some curbing,
especially with night football
games. We've got people from
all over the country coming to
see football games from other
counties. It's really a bad area,
it's really dark back in there, a
lot of traffic. The Daltons have
made a lot of money on this
community; maybe they
need to improve their area
over there. The railroad trestle
the people in Nokomis want
to raze it's goingto cost us a
lot of money and put that
project behind to help only a
few boaters. We need to
spend money in other areas.
And the subject of Venice
Hospital. Our Venice Hospital
is gone and the citizens did
not have. a say in it. Bon
Secours came, they left, they
didn't have a say in it. We have
a say now. Sarasota Memorial
is allowed to build here. You're
allowed to elect your officials,
your board members. You
may run for a board if you
int to. Y )u have a say in the
hospital and its future. Mayor
Calamaras does not have the


right to speak on behalf of the
citizens. He does not repre-
sent me and my feelings
about Sarasota Memorial. He
may be on a board, but he
represents all the citizens,
and not just himself.
No partnership. I'm calling
regarding the question of
whether Venice Regional
Medical Center and Sarasota
Memorial Hospital should
consider a partnership. No, I
think we should just let Sara-
sota Memorial Hospital come
in. We're all taxpayers here in
South County and we should
be able to use those services
without driving at least 30
miles.
Long ride. Maybe if there
was a sidewalk from the Circus
Bridge to Center Road side-
walks, the kids could take their
bikes down to theYMCA to use
the skate park But right now
the only sidewalks are Venice
Avenue down to Jacaranda,
which is a long bike ride.
Housing needed. I'm call-
ing about the letters to the
editor about this Mike Miller's
plan. The person who wrote
it, I agree with 100 percent; I
think he's right on the money
and I think the people in the
city hall should pay more
attention this and get some
housing in there for some of
the middle-class people and
workers in our community.
Bad idea. Having been in
the medical field for many,
years, I really do not think it's
a good idea for a partnership
between Venice Regional
Nledical Center and Sarasota
Memorial Hospital. I think
they will operate much better
as separate entities.

Cleaned? Hi, need your
carpet cleaned? $34.95 special
for five rooms. Well, all you get
is a little soap and water. But,
if you really want a better job,
it starts at $50 extra, then to
$70, etc. it goes on and on. All
you get is your pockets clean-
ed. It doesn't stop. Signed,
don't go there.
Good idea. I'm just calling
to voice my opinion. I think
the Sarasota hospital putting
a unit on Laurel Road is a
good idea.
Put the money'back. In
regard to Social Security going
to run out in 2016. If the U.S.
government would buy back
the IOUs they put into use a
Social Security fund, we
would not ever run out. The
system has been a wonderful
plan that works so don't fix
it. Just put the money back
into the fund they borrowed
and we will all be grateful
senior citizens when we retire.
Waterford support. Over
the past few weeks it appears
that many community lead-
ers have enthusiastically ap-
proved this Waterford plan for
the area adjacent to the ICW.
A vocal few have objected.
Why aren't they objecting to
the unattractive Rialto shop-
ping center that is an eyesore
to the community and has
been for years? Why aren't
they objecting to the unoccu-
pied and deteriorating busi-
nesses on our main north
street, Tamiami Trail? You
know, Landmark, two gas sta-
tions, Mrs. Chan's. I think we
should be pleased that a
responsible developer and
resident of our community
has gone to great lengths to
determine what our commu-
nity wants and needs and
then presents a plan that
meets and exceeds those ex-
pectations. What a dramatic
improvement in an area that
can only be described as the
armpit of do\nown\ Venice. I
think we should approve Iris
plan and beg him to do the
same thing for the other side
of the bridge. Even the Gon-
dolier building could use a lit-
tle sprucing up. And then, let
him tackle those disgusting
vacant buildings on Tamiami
Trail and the Rialto Shopping
Center.
Parents should pay. Those
skateboarders who go down-
town and destroy our proper-
ty; the parents should pay for
the damages. They should go
to the skateboard park.

4. One of the key reasons
private accounts appeal to
many younger people (those
under 40 particularly) is the
return on their contributions,
and those of their employers,
has only been 1.7 percent.
TIAA-CREF and CALPERS
have enjoyed -much higher
rates of returns, and have not
compromised the safety of
their clients' money.
5. Private accounts will not
resolve the inherent shortfalls
facing Social Security over the

will offer people a choice, and
an opportunity to protect
some of the investments they

Sarasota Memorial
Hospital ranks high
Editor:
U.S. News and World Re-
port magazine does an ad-
mirable job of annually rank-
ing various national institu-
tions. The July 16 issue ranked
more than 6,000 hospitals
nationwide. Only 176 scored
high enough to rank in even
one specialty of the 12, which
must meet stringent stan-
dards.
Sarasota Memorial Hos-


pital scored high enough to
be listed among the top hos-
pitals in seven specialties:
cancer; digestive disorders;
ear, nose and throat; geri-
atrics; heart surgery; orthope-
dics; and urology. Neither
present nor past Venice hos-
pitals were mentioned.
We are proud our tax dol-
lars support a nationally rec-

My comments about the
bridge timings got fast action
from John Ryan, president of
the chamber. He immediately
got hold of the Coast Guard,
which immediately sent him
the regulations for both of the
bridges I commented on,
Venice Avenue and Hatchett
Creek
My point was they were
untimed, which I had heard
from a good source (not good
enough, obviously). The regu-
lations show both of those
bridges are timed and,are on
20-minute cycles starting on
the hour for the North Bridge
and at 10 after on the Venice
Avenue Bridge. I apologized
to John for the inaccuracy.
They also are to go up on
demand for big vessels like
tugs and barges, which has
happened more with the
beach work going on recently.
They are not to go up
between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.

annual average. For the dry
season (October through
May) we were more than 2
inches over average. Plus, for
the first 20 days of June we
were about 3-1/2 inches over
the norm.
Incidentally;-I was just kid-
ding about changing the
watering schedule, but that
was what they said.

Today's Ism (a sign in the
window of an American busi-
ness): We would rather do
business with 1,000 al-Qaida
terrorists than with one single
American." This is in the win-
dow of a funeral home.

The census bureau has just
released its stats for popula-
tiongrowth from July 2003 to
July 2004. It sent out the top
growth counties in the coun-
try, and you might be sur-
prised to know that while
three counties in Florida are
in the top 10 they don't in-
clude us. Flagler is tops in the
country and St. Lucie and
Sumter are also on the list.
Florida is not the fastest-
growing state it was in the
top five, though but it did
win the honor of the most
population gain of any state,

Now that the eyesore gas
station has been ,torn down
on Turin and Business 41,
maybe someone will do


something to move along the
eyesore on the corner of
Nokomis and Miami avenues.
Work went at a snail's pace
until it stopped at maybe its
ugliest point. Hope the owner
gets serious about finishing
this building. I wonder if this
is payback for not getting per-
mission to put a restaurant
there.

Our birthday boy is on
many boards and led many
organizations, including the
Salvation Army and All Faiths
Food Bank as well as Sertoma,
where he has been president.
He is also on the Boys & Girls
Club advisory board.
He works hard at golf and
is one of the most optimistic
and enjoyable people to be
around I know. He is a big
supporter of Venice and has
promoted having Island Days
every Friday.
C.J. Fishman may be old,
but he's also a great treasure
to our community.
There is going to be a roast
of C.J. on Sept. 8 at the Plan-
tation. More to come on that.

Bumper sticker: Despite
the cost of living, have you
noticed how it remains so
popular?

Public meeting for Catfish Creek
stormwater project set for Thursday
Sarasota County Watershed Managementwill hold a public meeting
Thursday, July 28, to presentthe final plans and proposed annual assessment
forthe Catfish Creek Regional Stormwater Facility Project. The meeting is
scheduled for4:30-6:30 p.m. at Twin Lakes Park, Conference Room A/Green
Office Complex, 6700 Clark Road, Sarasota.Abrief presentation will be made
at4:30, and an informal question-and-answer session will follow.
Sixteen businesses in the Catfish Creek Drainage Basin experience chronic
flooding, as does Clark Road, a major hurricane evacuation route. This project
is expected to alleviate that flooding and provide water quality benefits to the
Catfish Creek Basin.
The new 24-acre regional stormwater lake will'incorporate an 18-acre parcel
formerly known as the Brannen Prestress Concrete Plant and two existing
adjacent stormwater ponds. The projectwill include the installation of drainage
pipes and improved drainage ditches to move stormwaterto the facility.
The approximately $5.3 million project will be funded through Mobility
revenues, grant funds and stormwater improvement assessments. Because
this projectwill benefit all those located within the specific drainage basin, these
assessments will be levied on all property owners within the basin.
All property owners of the Catfish Creek Basin will be assessed at a uniform
annual rate of approximately $75 per ESU. The assessment is calculated
based on a 20-year period, but that assessment period may be less if -
additional grantfunding can be obtained.
This is the last planned public meeting that will be held prior to the start of
construction. Design for the project is expected to be complete by the end of
August, and construction should begin in 2006. For more information, call the
Sarasota County Call Center at (941) 861-5000.

VPD still working


on reaccreditation


SBY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


The Venice Police Depart-
ment is still slogging through
the process of preparing for
reaccreditation.
, "Maybe we'll be ready next
year," Venice Police Deputy
Chief Dan McGoogan said
this week. "We're making pro-
gress."
Accreditation means a
police department has met or
exceeded nearly 300 stan-
dards of professionalism.
Accreditation is considered
the Holy Grail of law enforce-
ment.
VPD has much progress to
make.
The department was ac-
credited first on Oct. 8, 1997,
reaccredited Feb. 14, 2001,
and had certification in its
grasp for another three years.
However, the agency lost its
grip in a blizzard of poor
record-keeping and retrieval,
and management problems.
The agency has been
realigned internally with a
narrower focus on record
management. The realign-
ment was done strictly for the
purpose of reaccreditation.
The accrediting agency is
the Commission for Florida
Law Enforcement Accredi-
tation Inc., formed in 1993. It


is composed of four sheriffs,
four chiefs and one represen-
tative each from the Asso-
ciation of Counties, the
League of Cities and the judi-
ciary.
The commission meets
quarterly to oversee the
accreditation program and to
officially accredit agencies
that have passed the rigorous
review process.
In 1997, VPD was the first
municipal police department
on the west coast of Florida
and the third in the entire
state to achieve accreditation.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office also is going
through reaccreditation. How-
ever, unlike VPD, the SO did
not lose its accreditation and
is an accredited law en-
forcement agency.
Additionally, VPD is under-
going an audit by Matrix
Consultants, Inc., a Texas
management consultant. The
growing agency has been
beset by internal problems
for two years.
The agency also is experi-
encing labor union problems.
Its officers are presentlywork-
ing without a contract and the
city has declared negotiations
at an impasse. : -

Inmate phone
scam targets locals

STAFF REPORT

Area residents have been
targeted as part of a phone
scam carried out by inmates
at a Miami-Dade prison facil-
ity.
Hundreds of these calls
have been placed to residents
around the area over the past
few months, according to law
enforcement.
Here's how the phone scam
works: An inmate leaves a
message. on a resident's
answering machine telling
the person a relative has been
killed or is deathly ill. The
inmate gives a number to call
starting with *72 to speakwith
someone about the fake
tragedy.
By dialing *72 and the
number requested, residents
find that their calls are being
forwarded to another num-
ber, which gives total control
of their phone number to the
inmates, who can then rack
up big phone charges.
Victims who get a *72
request and follow through
making the call are advised to
dial the number again, using
*73 instead of the *72 to clear
their phone line.

DANCING AT SEO13 EK FRIENDSHIP -C EITE 14


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Remembering

Ilse Kern

In the dedication of her
book, "Looking Back," Ilse
Kern mentions her "sophisti-
cated special women friends,
my soul mates with whom I
can share my, deepest
thoughts as is possible be-
tween women."
"I do not mention names
because they will know who
they are."
Ilse was a great story teller
and she always got a smile on
her face and a twinkle in her
eye. when she mentioned
Gunther, the love of her life.
She recalled vowing to kill that
pilot who flew his plane low
and scared her. Instead, when
she met him at a dance her
father organized after the war,
she fell in love and the ro-
mance lasted almost 57 years.
Her father arranged dances
after the war to bring some
normalcy back to life, Ise re-
called.
Often Ilse talked about her
wedding. It was after the war
ivhen no one had anything.
Friends donated their rations
for food for the reception.
Gifts included a fork or a
spoon. They were treasures
salvaged during bombings
and escapes.
ilse cooked delicious brat-
wurst and was excited when
she found a great low-fat ver-
sion that fit into Gunther's
diet. She loved having friends
for dinner.
We will miss you, Ilse.
Grandmas rule
When it comes to having
fun, grandmas know how to
include their grandchildren.
Donna Gorrell loves taking
cruises. \,hen she thought
about the perfect high school
graduation gift for her grand-
son Scott Hulett, she decided
it would be a trip.
The duo sailed on the Sov-
ereign of the Seas to Nassau
and had a great time, includ-
ing getting all dressed up for
the Captain's Dinner. Scott
lives in Orlando and appreci-
ated having a chance to spend
time with Grandma.
Laurel O'Connors and her
grandson Colt O'Connors re-
cently spent a few days in the
Bahamas at the Atlantis Resort.
They enjoyed snorkeling and
hanging out. Colt wanted a
passport for Christmas so it's
clear he plans to spent a lot
more vacations with Grandma.
My granddaughter Tali's
heart broke when Bo Bice did-
n't become the "American
Idol." So, I decided to take Tali
to her first concert and see the
"American Idol" show in Tam-
pa. It was fun watching her
take it all in and sing along
with all the performers, espe-
cially Constantine and Bo.
Watching my daughter buy
her daughter a T-shirt and
book and tell her about her
first concert was priceless.
Shari's first concert was Don-
nie and Marie and the Os-
monds. I told Tali myfirst con-
cert cost $1 and included an
afternoon of The Four Lads,
The Four Coins, Chuck Berry
and Jerry Lee Lewis. The place
was the dHippodrome Theatre
in Cleveland, Ohio.
Pat on the back
On a recent visit to the Veri-
ice Regional Medical, Center
gift shop I noticed the lady
behind the counter had 17,000
volunteer hours marked on
her name tag. Three cheers for
Doris Hunter, who is also
chair of the shop.

Komen, who died from breast
cancer at the age of 36. More
than 20 years later, the
Komen Foundation is an in-
ternational organization with
a network of more than
75,000 volunteers working
through local affiliates to
eradicate breast cancer -as a
life-threatening disease

tive breast cancer research

outreach programs.
The other 15 percent of net
proceeds benefit the National

of-interest fund for breast
cancer initiatives. The Na-

Sarasota's Cat Depot,
5933 N. Washington Blvd., is
having a western-themed
Adoptathon on Saturday,

There are more than 200
cats waiting to be adopted.
Not just the good ones, bad
ones and ugly ones, but also
cute ones, curious ones and
lovable ones of many shapes,
sizes and colors. Any one of
them would make a great
companion.
Many of the animals at
the shelter have been waiting
for a home since 2003. The
adoptathon aims to get these
animals' stories out to the
public. Many of the cats have
never had a home or haven't
had one in a long time.
Viewing and adoption


hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
Prospective pet owners can
stop in any time.
There will be raffle prizes,
music and refreshments for
everyone.
For more information, call
the Cat Depot at 351-0824.
Cat Depot is a nonprofit
rescue organization devoted
to the welfare of felines.
They rescue abandoned,
abused and neglected cats
and kittens. They also assist
residents of Sarasota and
Bradenton in caring for their
pets.

Keeping your cool


when it's hot, hot, hot!


PAT STAHL, RN
GUEST COLUMNIST


Summer in Florida. Inter-
estingly, the summer temper-
ature rarely goes over 100 as it
regularly does in the big cities
up north. With humidity that
typically hovers near 100 per-
cent, however, Florida sum-
mers can be punishing.
Sweating is your body's
.natural cooling mechanism.
But when the humidity's
high, your perspiration can't
evaporate. You feel even hot-
ter and your body responds
by sweating more. In fact, the
average adult loses about a
liter of water a day through
perspiration and other bodily
processes. That boils down
(no pun intended) to about
four 8-ounce glasses of fluid.
If it isn't replaced, you can
become seriously dehydrated.
At first this can cause ele-
vated pulse and nausea fol-
lowed by dizziness, headache
and difficulty walking. If it
reaches as much as 15 per-
cent of total body water, it can
result in heat exhaustion, heat
stroke and possibly even
death.
So how do you stay hydrat-
ed and keep your cool during
Florida summers? The obvi-

Russian leaders visit area agencies


STAFF REPORT


Last Monday, Russian
leaders who are visiting
from the Open World' Rus-
sian Leadership Program
Exchange, dialogue with
human services providers
during a forum sponsored by
The Community Alliance of
Sarasota County at The
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County office.
During the next four days,
the Russian contingent will


visit about a dozen Alliance-
member agencies to tour
facilities and learn about
specific programs and ser-
vices that address a range of
community issues. Tours of
the Glasser/Schoenbaum
Human Services Center and
the Sarasota County Health
Department will occur on
Thursday, July 21 from 9 to
11 a.m. and from 1:15 to 3:15
p.m., respectively.
The Glasser/Schoenbaum
Human Services Center,


which is located in close
proximity to the neighbor-
hoods of greatest need in
northern Sarasota County is
a one-stop center that is
home to 17 health, human
services and client advocacy
agencies that occupy rent-
free space so more of their
resources can be devoted to
direct client services. The
Glasser/Schoenbaum Hu-
man Services Center is lo-
cated at 1750 17th St. in
Sarasota.


Later that'day, the Russian
guests will visit the Sarasota
County Health Dept., 2200
Ringling Blvd. in Sarasota,
where they'll learn about
their communicable disease
program, health clinics and
community outreach pro-
grams geared to pregnant
women and others. Time
will be spent discussing the
strength of community part-
nerships and coalitions in
enhancing community pro-
grams and services.

ous answer is to drink lots of
water but not caffeine,
energy drinks or alcohol, as
these promote additional
fluid loss.
Water is good for you. A
study publicized in the New
England Journal of Medicine
found that the more liquids
men consumed, the lower the
risk of bladder cancer. Drink-
ing water can help you lose
weight if it replaces soft
drinks that are loaded with
sugar. If your physician limits
the amount of fluid you drink,
or has prescribed diuretics
(water pills), ask how much
liquid you should drink when
the weather is hot.
Now about staying cool.
Remain indoors in air condi-
tioning as much as possible.
A few hours in cool air will
help your body stay cooler
when you have to go back
into the heat. If your home
Isn't air conditioned, go see a
movie, visit the mall, go to the
library or make an excuse to
drop in on a friend. Wear
lightweight, loose-fitting
clothing preferably cotton.
Take a cool shower. Its effects
can last for hours.
Try to schedule outdoor
activities for early morning or
after sundown. If being out

in the sun is unavoidable,
wear a large floppy hat with
a wide brim. Take frequent
rests in shady areas. And
drink water. Remember, if
you actually get thirsty,
you've already lost important
body fluids. So drink up!

In collaboration with Sen-
ior Solutions of South-west
Florida, an Area Agency on
Aging designated by the De-
partment of Elder Affairs,
Jewish Family and Children's
Service will provide a free
Caregiver Time Out program
for Sarasota County residents.
Through a support group
for caregivers, JFCS proposes
services to ease the burden
of caregivers and to provide


therapeutic and socialization
skills to the frail seniors. The
loved ones will have an op-
portunity to participate in
reminiscence therapy fol-
lowed by lunch and a pro-
gram with opportunity for
socialization.
The caregivers will have
an hour to talk and share
their concerns with other
caregivers and have suffici-
ent time to go out for a few
hours for rest and relaxation
or join their loved ones for
lunch and a "program." The
program will vary from week
to week and will consist of
educational, fun and interac-
tive concepts.


Many caregivers them-
selves feel deserted if not
physically, then intellectually
and emotionally. This sup-
port group will provide care-
givers the opportunity to
make emotional and sup-

other caregivers. The goal of
JFCS is to help the Caregiver
take better care of their loved
one and better care of them-
selves. Call JFCS at 366-2224

Q. My mom just purchased
a hearing aid that has
"directionality." I am not
sure that she understands
what the means. Please
explain.
A. Research has shown'that
directional hearing aids
improve speech
understanding in noisy
environments. Directional
hearing aids allow the wearer
to focus on sounds in front of
them, while sounds from the
rear are automatically
suppressed. This is why it is
important for the wearers to
situate themselves to that
most of the background noise
is behind them and they
should face the person they
most wish to hear. People
using hearing aids without
directionality are at a great
disadvantage in noisy social
situations. Hearing aids with .
direction microphones are the
only proven way to improve
hearing in noise. To learn
more about directional
hearing aids and their
benefits, call the Audio-
logists at Woodmere

Court rejects attempt to strip manatees of protection


STAFF REPORT


Advocates for the endan-
gered Florida manatee have
announced that a federal
court has preserved the pro-
tection of Florida manatees
and other marine species
under the Marine Mammal
Protection Act (MMPA).
The Florida Marine
Contractors Association filed
suit in 2003 challenging the
federal government's rejec-
tion of permit applications
for the construction of new
docks in inland manatee
habitat. The association
argued that the protections of
the MMPA did not apply to
inland waters. A coalition of
manatee advocates led by
The. Save the Manatee Club,
The Humane Society of the
United States and Defenders
of Wildlife opposed the suit
and were granted permission
to appear as amicus curie.
The decision by the U.S.
District Court for the Middle
District of Florida was issued
July 18.
The manatee advocates
got involved in the case
because additional boating
traffic in the manatees' habi-
tat would result in an increase
in injuries and deaths of the
slow-moving mammals. This
concern was backed up by
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service's own conclusion that
building the docks would
have more than a "negligible
impact" on the manatees
and would violate the MMPA.
To make matters worse, the
contractors provided no pro-
tective measures for mana-
tees such as slow speed
zones, sign postings and
proper enforcement in
the areas where the docks
were to be built.
? Judge James S. Moody, Jr.
niled that the MMPA "dem-
onstrates clearly that Con-
gress identified man's activi-
ties as the undesirable cause
of marine mammals' artifi-
cially low numbers, and rec-
ognized these activities as
being both commercial and
recreational in nature." Judge
Moody notes that the objec-
tive of the MMPA is "to pro-
tect marine mammals from
these artificial hazards so
that their numbers can reach
and maintain equilibrium
with their natural habitats."
In rejecting the developers'
claims, the Court observed
that limiting the application
of the MMPA would allow
recreational activities to con-
tinue without regard for
marine mammal habitats -
which is precisely the result
Congress wished to avoid in
enacting the MMPA.
"This is a huge win for
manatees and for all marine
mammals that inhabit Flor-
ida's estuaries and river sys-
tems," said Patti Thompson,
director of science and con-
servation for Save the Man-
atee Club. "It validates Con-
gress' intention to protect
marine mammals throughout
their habitat.""We are so
pleased the court saw

attempt to eviscerate the

Act," said Jonathan Lovvom,
vice president of animal pro-

sive protection of marine
mammals in both state and

mandated by the MMPA, but
is also critically necessary for

species like the West Indian
manatee."


"Our waterways have be-

Ann Macdonald, Florida

Medicare's extra help program


Dear Savvy Senior,
My neighbor recently got an
application in the mail from
Social Security for extra help
paying for her prescription drug
costs. Does not getting an appli-
cation mean I'm not eligible for
assistance? I am 67 years old
and could sure use some extra
help. What can you tell me? -
Looking for Extra Help
Dear Looking,
The new Medicare pre-
scription drug benefit, which
begins Jan. 1, 2006, will offer
extra help to older Americans
with limited incomes, but
just because you don't get an
application in the mail does-
n't necessarily mean you're
not eligible. Here's what you
should know.
Extra help
From last May through
August, the Social Security
Administration has been
mailing out application
forms to millions of Medicare


beneficiaries (with limited
income) who maybe eligible
for "extra help" paying for
their out-of-pocket Medicare
prescription drug costs. More
than 14 million Americans
will be eligible for this extra
help, which will pay between
75 and 100 percent of their
drug costs.
Do you qualify?
More than 6 million of the
Medicare beneficiaries eligi-
ble for the prescription drug
extra help (the very low
income) are automatically
enrolled and don't need to
apply. But there's another 8
million people out there with
slightly higher incomes that
may also eligible, and need
to apply. Here's how the extra
help eligibility breaks down:
SAutomatically Enrolled:
If you are receiving Medicaid,
Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) or assistance
with a Medicare Savings
Program, you are automati-
cally enrolled and don't have
to apply. The Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid
Services (CMS) should have
sent a letter explaining this to
you. But in late fall you will
still be asked to enroll in a
drtig plan of your choice. If
you don't, CMS will enroll
you in one.
MustApply: If your 2005
monthly income is below
$1,197 ($1,604 for couples)
and your assets are below


$11,500 ($23,000 for couples),
you qualify for extra help but
you must apply. Even if your
income or assets are above
these limits, you may still
qualify (and should apply)
because certain types of
income and assets are not
included. Also, know that
receiving an application in
the mail from Social Security
doesn't necessarily mean you
will get extra help, and not
receiving an application
doesn't mean you're not eligi-
ble. If you don't receive an
application by late August
and think you may be eligi-
ble, you should apply either
by phone at (800) 772-1213,
online at socialsecurity.gov or
you can apply in person at
your local Social Security
office.
Income and assets
People who are automati-
cally enrolled don't have to
worry about figuring their
income and assets since the
government has already been
deemed them below the
limit. But for those who must
apply, income means any
money from work, Social
Security, retirement benefits,
alimony, rental property, etc.
Assets that are counted
include bank accounts,
investments, additional real
estate and the value of life
insurance policies. They do
not include your home, vehi-

Remember tasting ice cream sodas?


If I asked you if you would
like a soda, would you think I
meant a soft drink? Not some
of us!
I would be thinking of a
glorious, unforgettable blend
of flavors made from a special
recipe at a real ice cream soda
fountain. And I would be
remembering how a beautiful
concoction is presented to
you with pride and a smile.
Of course, I'm talking to
you about a real ice cream
soda! My addiction started in
the 1930s when I was dating
Joe, whom I later married. I
guess I'm not the only one,
because the manager of the
local downtown soda foun-
tain told me that he had/about
15 requests daily for those
tempting ice cream sodas.
In our college days on a
Sunday afternoon, we would
often go for an ice cream
sbda, maybe even going out
of town for a big adventure.
Not until after college did we
sneak into a liquor bar, one
night, hoping no one would
see us, because we still lived at
home. A little bit different
than today.
Whenever we traveled, we
would try one of these delec-
table little treats, even sam-
pling one in Switzerland. (But
it didn't measure up.) When-
ever our children come to
visit, a trip to a soda fountain
is a must. Sometimes my sons
would try to cheat, and order
something else. My daughter
Jean and I share an ice cream
soda, since I can no longer
handle an entire one.
According to what some-
body told me, it was forbid-
den to serve ice cream'sodas
on Sunday in the latter part
of the 1800s. Do you suppose
it was wicked to serve any-
thing so good? Anyway, the
story goes, that's why they
introduced ice cream Sun-
days.
Some like sodas with


chocolate and vanilla, which
are called black and white.
Coffee ice cream with choco-
late syrup is called a mocha
soda. I am told that a straw-
berry soda is both beautiful to
behold and delicious to drink.
But I am too much of a choco-
holic for that.
Before we moved to Venice,
our family spent two Christ-
mas holidays on Sanibel Is-
land. We found out that my
son John's wife Sally had
never had an ice cream soda.
So we marched her into an ice
cream parlor and ordered her
one. We eagerly watched her
face for signs of ecstasy as she
sampled the special treat. She
took a few sips of the deli-
cious soda, made an awful
face and said, "Yuck." Our
faces fell. How could she not
like it? So one of us decided
we should try one there to see
why she didn't enjoy it. She
was right, it was.watery and
awful. I don't think we've ever


gotten her to try another one.
One day, not too long ago,
my daughter Jean was attend-
ing a scientific convention in
San Diego. One afternoon I
received a call on her cell
phone. "Mom, I'm sitting on
the beach beside the ocean -
eating an ice cream soda!" I'm
at a table outside a Ghirardelli
soda fountain. Several weeks
later John called, "Mom, I'm
having an ice cream soda in a
little town in Western
Maryland." You can see what I
mean about this family tradi-
tion.
If we go in for a soda and it
is not made right, my children
might be guilty of saying, "My
mom could tell you how to
niake it right." My children's
view, of course, would be that
I might offer my advice with-
out that prompting from
them. My "expertise" stems
from several years when I was

cause I could have all the ice
cream I wanted free that was
where I learned to order
mocha sodas.
Every day I had to pass by
tables of hand-dipped choco-
lates of every description, and
soft caramels made of butter
and cream. It is easy to see
how my sweet tooth grew, and
why my children loved to visit
where I worked. You know, I
gained a couple of pounds on
that job.
I learned all about sodas
during that time, although I
never made one myself. But a
local soda fountain manager
confirms that the way I
learned to make them is cor-
rect. You first blend together a
scoop of ice cream with
choice of syrup, fill the glass
with seltzer, add two more
scoops of ice cream, a dollop
of whip cream if you wish,
and maybe even a cherry.
Have you tried an ice cream
soda lately?

in a Medicare drug plan
between Nov. 15, 2005, and
May 15, 2006. Also, if you get
turned down for Medicare's

Disease-fighting foods
Dear Savvy Senior,
I just turned 50 last week and
am looking to make some
healthy changes to my diet.
With a family history of heart
disease and cancer, I would like
to know which foods are the
best at fighting these diseases.
Can you help me? Supersized
Sam
Dear Sam,
The best defense against
disease is what you eat! While
there are dozens of nutrition-
al foods that can keep you
healthy (see mypyramid
.gov), here are some heart
healthy, cancer fighting super
foods for you to consider.


Heart-healthy foods
Studies have found that
healthy food habits can lower
your cholesterol, blood pres-
sure and weight which will
significantly reduce your
chances of developing heart
disease later in life. Here are
some foods that can help:
Almonds or walnuts: A
handful a day can reduce
"bad" LDL cholesterol by
nearly 5 percent.
Fish: Four servings of
fish a week can lower heart
disease risk by an average of
14 percent. Salmon, tuna,
and sardines are full of
omega-3s, fatty acids that
can lower cholesterol and
blood pressure and can help
prevent breast and colon
cancer.
Produce: Score another
one for fruits and vegetables.
About 14 ounces a day can
cut heart disease risk by
nearly one fourth. Colorful
produce like blueberries,
broccoli, tomatoes, melons,
apples, apricots, oranges,
\carrots and leafy greens are
a.U heart healthy foods rich in
antioxidants and fiber.
7 Oatmeal: A half-cup
serving of oatmeal contains
only about 130 calories while
delivering 5 grams of heart-
healthy fiber that helps to
lower cholesterol. Other
whole grains such as whole
wheat, barley, rye, millet,
quinoa, brown rice and wild
rice also help reduce the risk
of diabetes, which in itself is
a risk factor for heart disease.
SSoy: Rich in omega-3
fatty acids, protein, vitamins
and minerals, soy can lower
your blood pressure and may
also help prevent various
cancers. You can get soy from
soybeans, soy nuts, soy milk,


soy flour, fortified cereal,
tempeh and tofu. Visit soy-
foods.org.
Red wine: A daily glass of
the grape can help lower
cholesterol and reduce heart
disease by one-third. But
remember, too much wine is
worse for you than none at
all.
Dark chocolate: Eating
this treat daily can reduce
blood pressure, but don't go
nuts. Only an ounce or so per
day will do.
Cancer-fighting foods
Experts say you can lower
your overall cancer risk by at
least 30 percent if you consis-
tently eat at least five of these
foods three or more times a
week:
Broccoli: The best food
on the planet to prevent all
types of cancers. If you get
tired of broccoli, brussels
sprouts and cauliflower are
good alternatives.
Beans: Loaded with pro-
tein and high in fiber beans
can lower your cholesterol
and reduce the risk of breast,
colon, lung, prostrate, rec-
tum and stomach cancers.
Try a variety of beans includ-
ing black, lentils, garbanzo,
kidney, lima, navy and pinto.
Garlic: While it may not
do much for your breath, it
provides protective benefits
against colon, stomach and
esophageal cancers and low-
ers cholesterol too.
Spinach: Popeye's
favorite is rich in antioxi-
dants and helps fight cancers
of the liver, ovaries, colon
and prostate. If you get tired
of spinach try cabbage.
Tomatoes: A great food
to help men to avoid prostate
cancer. It also helps lower the


risk of ovarian, cervical,
breast, lung and digestive
cancers.
Berries: Blueberries,
cranberries, cherries, rasp-
berries, strawberries and
grapes are all rich in antioxi-
dants that help ward off can-
cer and prevent cataracts.
Yogurt: A tasty way to
boost your immune system
and fight off colon and breast
cancer.
Tea: Green or black tea is
an easy, cheap way to pre-
vent cancer and heart dis-
ease.
Savvy tips
The American Cancer
Society (cancer.org (800) 227-
2345) and American Heart
Association (american
heart.org (800) 242-8721)
both offer nutritional tips,
recipes, cookbooks and
free brochures on healthy
eating.
Caregiving help
Dear Savvy Senior,
My 78-year-old father re-
cently suffered a debilitating
stroke. He is recovering slowly
but he now needs much more
care than mom and I can supply.
Do you have some ideas that
can help us take care of dad at
home? Overwhelmed
Daughter
Dear Overwhelmed,
'Caregiving is a tough job
that most people don't ever
think about or prepare for
until it's staring them in the
face. Fortunately, help is on
hand. Here are some great
caregiving services and
resources you should know
about.
Caregiving services
Knowing what resources


are available and who to
call for help are invaluable
tools for caregivers.
Depending on your needs
and circumstances, there
are lot's of programs and
services that may be able to
assist you. The best place to
help you locate what's avail-
able in your community is
your Area Agency on Aging.
Call the Eldercare Locator at
(800) 677-1116 to get your
local agency phone number
or visit eldercare.gov. Some
specific services to ask about
are:
Home and Personal
Care: Home care aides can
do chores such as cleaning
the house, grocery shopping,
preparing meals, doing laun-
dry and can provide non-
medical help with activities
of daily living such as
bathing, dressing, or using
the toilet.
Home Health Care:
Provides health care needs
prescribed by a doctor. This
includes skilled nursing care,
rehabilitative therapy, giving
medicine, wound care and
medical help.
Companion Services:
Volunteers that make regular
visits or phone calls to older
adults who can't get out of
the house.
Transportation: Many
communities provide trans-
portation to medical
appointments, senior cen-
ters, or shopping. These ser-
vices are usually free, but
some may have a small
fee.
Meal Services: Home-

offer nutritional meals to

An insider's guide to Montreal, Canada's sweetest city


BY ELLEN CREAGER
GUEST WRITER


The first time I went to
Montreal, I stayed at the Ritz-
Carlton and played tourist.
The second time, I
watched the Canadians win
at hockey.
The third time, I dropped
off a scared college freshman
and drove fast out of the city,
crying.
SAnd in the other dozen
times I've been back since,
I've gotten to know a sweet
city well.
The place that gave the
world Cirque du Soleil, Celine
Dion and smoked meat is
exuberantly the best of
Canada.
Jazz and tango, fur and
biosphere, voyageur and bon
vivant, hockey and elegance
all meet in Montreal.
And for a metro area of 3.6
million, it doesn't feel crowd-
ed.
My favorite statistic?
"Quebecers spend the
equivalent of two weeks per
year on their balcony." -
Tourisme Montreal
There are 1.5 million bal-
conies in Montreal. And a lot
of civilization.
You can find out lots about
Montreal from guidebooks
and Web sites. I won't waste
time on that. Instead, here are
some inside tips:
"The customary way to
greet friends in Montreal is to
kiss them on both cheeks." -
Tourisme Montreal'
Montreal may be in
Canada, but look around.


Customs, social mores and
lifestyle are not like anything
else in North America. So, go
with the flow, kiss, kiss.
Yes, everything is in
French. That means all the
signs, most TV and radio sta-
tions, and most conversation
on the sidewalk. Nearly 70
percent are native French
speakers. But most people in
the city center are bilingual.
If they realize you are
American, they will feel sorry
for you and switch to English.
I know this because my
French is virtually nonexis-
tent.
Just remember, Est is East
and Ouest is West.
In Montreal, women wear
fur without guilt. Everywhere
you look, there's a university
or college. Don't wear crum-
my shoes in Montreal; it's not
done. And the top of Mont
Royal has the best view of the
city.
What else?
"Montrealers like roaming
around in the streets without
any particular purpose, just
for the fun of being with
friends." Tourisme
Montreal
Visitors will notice that
Montreal has the most beau-
tiful women (and men) in
North America. Bundled up
in winter, they come out in all
their stylish glory in summer.
Sit at a cafe, especially along
Prince Arthur street in the
Latin Quarter, and gawk. It's
see and be seen.
Tourists always stop at the
Notre Dame Basilica. But the
lavish cathedral in .Old


Montreal is not just a nice
church. It is a heartbeat of
history ingrained in every
Montrealer, a reminder of the
struggles of the first settlers in
this wild outpost of France in
the 1600s.
The cathedral is also a
celebrity magnet it was the
site of singer Celine Dion's
wedding in 1994 and former
Prime Minister Pierre
Trudeau's huge funeral in
2000.
Visit during a mass or an
evening light show, just to
hear music echoing off the
colorful gothic walls ($3 entry,
tourisme-montreal.org).
"Montrealers do not shy
away- from making eye con-
tact with strangers." -
Tourisme Montreal
Some Montrealers also
enjoywild boat rides on the
Lachine Rapids. Not me.
Relax instead on a Bateau-
Mouche French-style tour
boat from Old-Montreal's
port. You'll pass the dimpled
Expo '67 Biosphere and other
sights along the St. Lawrence,
but you can also laze around
sampling lunch or dinner on
a 1- to 3-hour cruise (about
$18-up, (514) 849-9952,
bateau-mouche.ca). .
"With the highest number
of tango dancers on the conti-
nent, Montreal is the tango
capital of North America." -
,.Tourisme Montreal
Montreal has thousands of
shops. Special is the Marche
Bonsecours indoor market,
which features Quebec-made
art, clothing and gifts (514)
872-7730, marchebonsec-


ours.qc.ca).
And yes, just behind
Marche Bonsecours, watch
tango dancers outdoors from
8-10:30 p.m. every Friday
night at Place des Vestiges
from Aug. 6 to Sept. 3. It's free.
"For Montrealers, the
weekend often begins on
Thursday night." Tourisme
Montreal
Nightlife, centered on
Crescent and St. Laurent
streets, often goes until 3 a.m.
Here are two good spots:
The Vocalz Karaoke Bar is a
Montreal hangout for would-
be stars, and it has more than
3,000 songs to choose from.
Nobody knows you here,
right? So sing it, sister (1421
Crescent, (514) 288-9119,
vocalz.net). Meanwhile, more
sophisticated tastes are satis-
fied at the Upstairs Jazz Bar
and Grill, a small Montreal
club with great live jazz (1254
MacKay, (514) 931-6808,
upstairsjazz.com).
Restaurants? Metropolitan
Montreal has more than
5,000. Here are a fewI like:
La Capannina. Small
Italian restaurant with warm
service and delicious pasta
(2022 Stanley, (514) 845-1852,
$$$)..
Troika. Traditional
Russian fare, blini, borscht,
wild boar, caviar. Fun small
restaurant with music and
that old tsarist rhythm (2171
Crescent, (514) .849-9333,
$$$$).
Restaurant du Vieux
Port. Fantastic Sunday
brunch in Old Montreal (39
St. Paul East, (514) 866-3175,


restaurantduvieuxport.com,
$$$).
S-Asha. Moderately priced
and casual Indian fare near
McGill University (3490 du
Parc, (844) 3178, $$).
By the way, if you're won-
dering what smoked meat is,
it's an old French Canadian
recipe, kind of like pastrami.
Don't .mix these up. The
Metro is the subway, fast and
efficient. The underground is
19 miles of subterranean
sidewalks and shops.
Drive about an hour north
of Montreal into the Laur-
entians. In the winter it's a ski
resort. In the summer, it's a
refreshing interlude. My
favorite village is Val-David.
Drive there, eat lunch, walk
the shops and galleries, and
.drive back by dark (val-
david.com).
If you have a couple extra
days, drive 2-1/2 hours north
to Quebec City, a frozen-in-
time French town with grand
vistas, carriage rides, art and
romance. Eat dinner at Aux
Anciens Canadiens; old
Quebec food includes buffalo
casserole and maple syrup
pie ((418) 692-1627, auxan-
cienscanadiens.qc.ca).
After that, look around for
a balcony, and sit on it. It's the
Quebecois way.
If you go
Getting there: Montreal's
recently renamed Pierre-
Elliott-Trudeau Airport is easy
to navigate. Locals still call
the airport Dorval. Car rental
is on-site; otherwise take the
Aerobus to the city (about $17


roundtrip, (514) 842-2281).
Where to stay: Montreal
has 24,000 hotel beds; I have
stayed at and can recom-
mend these hotels:
Delta Montreal (from
$159/night; ask about sum-
mer deals). Big. modem, well-

around since the 1970s.
Nevertheless, there are
some relatively new wrinkles.
Wyndham International, for
example, lowered its mini-bar
prices for non-alcoholic bev-
erages and snacks, but not for
alcoholic drinks. "Guests were
saying they were tired of
being nickeled and dimed at
hotels, so we decided to do
something about it," said
Andrew. ordan, the chain's
executive vice president of
sales and marketing. Mem-
bers of the Wyndham By-
Request program (open to all
guests) can select compli-
mentary beverages and
snacks for their room by fill-
ing out a personal profile, he
said.
The No. 1 reason hotel
guests like mini-bars is con-
venience, said Paul Daly,
executive director of food and
beverage for Chicago-based
Hyatt Hotels Corp. Yes, the
pricing for mini-bar items is
high, he acknowledged, but
guests are willing to pay for
the convenience,
Mini-bars have come a
long way since the '70s. You
can still find peanuts, chips
and cookies as well as the

usual beverages. But a few
hotel minds who think out-
side the traditional box have
added some untraditional
items to the mix: condoms,
gels, lubricants, massage oils
and canned oxygen, to name,
a few. To borrow from Dave
Barry, "I'm not making, this
up."
Not only has mini-bar con-
tent, changed, the mini-bar
itself has changed. New tech-
nology in the last five years or
so has changed the mini-bar
world, Daly said, explaining
that infrared scanners or
motion, sensors in mini -bars
(linked to -hotel, computers'I
now provide real-time charg-
ing. "You pick an item out of a
mini-bar scanner parame-
ters average 12 seconds so
you can look at the item and
put it back. If you don't put it
back you are& charged in real
time. If you were to go to the
front desk, the charge would
be on your bill. That has
helped hotels run the opera-
tion more profitably. More
importantly, it's a lot more
convenient and accurate for
our guests."
Daly said not all Hyatt
hotels have mini-bars. "If the
bars weren't put in when the
hotel was built, it's a sizable
capital investment to put
them. in afterwards." Those
that do have mini-bars are
stocked very similarly be-
cause the demands are pretty
typical --beer, soda, water,
pretzels, chocolate chip cook-
ies, candy bars.
"Pricing is dependent
upon the market," said Daly,
"We typically price items con-

In Hyatt's upscale hotels,
such as the Hotel Victor in
Miami's hot South Beach
strip, "we try to be unique arid
try to meet the needs of what
we think those guests want."
items on the Victor's mini-
bar list range from $4 for Dr.
Pepper, tonic water and Evian
to $75 for a bottle of Patron
Silver Tequila. A bottle of
cabernet sauvignon goes for
$40. There's; also an item
called the Kinky Khemist, a kit
that includes condoms for a

Writer says there's always tradeoffs for flying to Europe at discount prices


BY RICK STEVES
GUEST WRITER

Flying to Europe is a great,
travel bargain for the well-
informed. The rules and regu-
lations are confusing and
always changing, but when
you make the right choice,
you get the right price.
Dollars saved (equal) dis-
comfort (plus). restrictions
(plus) inflexibility.
There is no great secret to
getting to Europe for next to
nothing. Assuming you know
your options, you get what
you pay for. There's no such
thing as a freelunch in the air--
line industry Regular fare is
very expensive. You get the
ultimate in flexibility, but I've
never met anyone spending
his or her own money who
flew that way.
Rather than grab the
cheapest ticket to Europe. go
with your agent's recommen-
dation for the best combina-
-tion of reliability, economy
and flexibility for your travel
needs. Buy your ticket when
you're ready to firmly commit
to flight dates and ports. As
you delay, dates sell out and
prices generally go up. Special
fares are generallylimited to a
fewseats to jump-start depar-
tures.
Buy your tickets at the
right time.


Fall travel should probably
be booked by June, because
the trend for airfare prices
and availability is known by
then. Your travel agent can
advise you whether to buy
now or hold off for lower
fares. Travel during winter -
November through March -
should be purchased a month
or so in advance (with the
exception of winter breaks
and holidays, which require
earlier booking).
.* Consider flying "open
jaw."
I routinely fly "open jaw":
into- one city and out of
another. The fare is figured
simply by taking half of the
round-trip fare for each of
those ports. I used to fly into
Amsterdam, travel to Istanbul
and (having rejected the
"Open jaw" plan because fly-
ing home from Istanbul costs
$200 more than returning
from Amsterdam) pay $200 to
ride the train for two days
back to Amsterdam to catch
my "cheap" return flight. Now
I see the real economy in
spending more for "open
jaw." "Open jaw" is cheapest
when the same airline covers
each segment of the round-
trip journey.
A good agent will check
both consolidator and airline
fares, then offer you the best
deal.

to pay after booking and cred-
it cards are becoming more
acceptable (a fee of 4 percent
or so is charged for payment
in plastic). If, after you buy an
airline ticket,: the airline's
price drops yet again, you can
exchange your ticket and save
some money if the dis-
count is greater than the
change fee (generally $75-
$250). Consolidator tickets,
however, won't get any cheap-
er; the price, once estab-
lished, stays the same. Ask
about cancellation policies:
What is the fee? Will you
receive a refund or credit?
Consolidator tickets are usu-
ally refundable prior to de-
parture, minus a fee of $200 to
$300.
Consolidator tickets often
waive the normal advance-


Consolidator tickets are
generally cheapest, but some-
times fare wars can make an
airline's prices unbeatable.
Consolidators (or whole-
salers) negotiate with airlines
to get deeply discounted fares
on a 1tuge number of tickets;
they offer these tickets to your
travel agent, who then marks
them up and still sells you a
cheaper flight to Europe than
the airline itself can. (Note
that some travel agencies are
consolidators.) An airline's
ticket prices in a drawn-out
fare war, however, can drop to
bargain-basement levels. A
good travel agent will offer
both consolidator and regular
airline fares. If not, specifical-
ly ask the agent to check con-
solidator rates.
With consolidator tickets,
you usually have seven days

that dome with other budget
tickets. But consolidator tick-
ets are cheap because they
come with disadvantages:
They are "nonendorsable,"
meaning that no other airline
is required to honor that tick-
et if your airline is unable to
get you home (though in
practice this is rarely a prob-
lem). Sometimes you may not
get frequent-flyer miles (par-
ticularly with British Airways
and American Airlines). And,
if the airline drops its prices
(which often happens), you
are stuck with what was, but
no longer is, a cheap fare.
Courier flights usually
sound better than they are.
Courier flights can get
some travelers to Europe with


deeply discounted tickets (30-
80 percent off). Couriers,
whose luggage is limited to

STAFFREPORT.

After nearly 16 months of
construction, Fire Staion 4 at
3550 Old Bradenton Road
and Fire Station 11 at 2200
Stickney Point Road in Sara-
sota are back in operation
with state-of-the-art facilities
and more than 8,000 square
feet of space for apparatus
and living area.
The approximately $1.4
million cost of each station
was funded by the penny
infrastructure surtax. Official
opening ceremonies are
scheduled for September.
Fire Station 11 also re.-
ceived a new 105-foot Bronto
Emergency One ladder truck
that will serve, among other
areas, the Gulf Gate, Siesta
Key and Vamo neighbor-
hoods.
This new ladder truck
replaces a 1985 ladder truck
and allows for vertical/hori-
zontal reach to 105 feet or 10
floors and allows for below
level reach (if there is a need
to extend downward over a
building or bridge for a rescue
operation).
In addition to being built


to withstand the force of a
category 3 hurricane, both
stations.now also comply
with the latest National Fire
Protection Agency require-
ments for fire gear storage
and vehicle exhaust removal
systems. Anew decontamina-
non space features a biohaz-
ardous cleaning room for
medical equipment, plus
many other safety features.
According to Fire Chief
Brian Gorski, Fire Station 11
was built in 1953, and Fire
Station 4 in 1960. "Back then.
both stations housed only
one or two fire apparatus and
,were only staffed by two fire-:
fighters," said Gorski. "The
living areas were no larger
than 1,200 square feet."
Gorski said that over time,
both stations have undergone
renovations to add more
apparatus and firefighters,
but their age and condition
required reconstruction to
keep up with the demand of
Sarasota,s growing commu-
nities., During the rebuild,
firefighters from both sta-,
tions, along with their appa-
ratus, operated from tempo-
rary facilities.

transport shipping docu-
ments.i Upon landing, they
turn the documents over to a
courier company representa-
tive, who checks the cargo
through customs.
For most, these cheap
flights are a pipe dream. The
nuinber of bargain courier
flights to Europe has dinil-
ished over the past several
years. You need to be able to
fly on short notice and live in
the key "departure cities"
(such as New York, Miami, or
San Francisco). Lately, courier
services have started charging
a percentage of the ticket
value, making the whole
notion less exciting.
If you think courier flights
could work for you, do a little
research. The International
Association of Air Travel
Couriers offers free informa-
tion about air couriers on its
Web site ($45/year to join:
courier.org). But you won't
find out much from the Air
Courier Association ($49/

Budget flights are restric-
tive.
Most are nonchangeable
and nonrefundable, but some
offer changes on the return
dates for a penalty of about
$100-$200. Even then, you
typically need to make
changes at least 24 hours
before your departure to
avoid losing the entire value
Of the ticket. If you need to
change your return date in
Europe, telephone your air-
line's European office. If that
fails; I've found airlines
become more lenient if you
go to their office in person
with a good reason for your
need to change the return
date. If you must get home
early, go to the airport. If
you're standing at the airport

seats are available, regardless
of the rules, they may let you
fly home early (at no extra
cost). They win a happy cus-
tomer and gain two more
days to try to sell an empty
seat. Besides, at that point, it's
the easiest way to get rid of
you.
' Expect to get an electron-
ic ticket.
More and more, airlines
are pushing electronic tickets.
For years, I've recommended
requesting a paper ticket
instead.
That way, if there's a need


to change flights or if com-
puters go down, you have a
legal and tangible ticket in
your hand. But now the pres-
sure to go electronic is so
intense and the extra fees
for getting a paper ticket are
so high that Irve given in
and accepted the reality that
everyone will be fling on e-
tickets.
While travelers with an e-i
ticket can fly simply with a
photo I.D., it's always smart to
also bring the printed receipt
with you in case of complica-
tions at the airport.

Share your hurricane survival secrets with Southwest Floridians


You have cases of water, 10 flashlights, your bathtub is
filled and your bucket handy.
But what are the smart little extras you've found
to help you live through tough times hurricane
winds, power outages, a house full of young ones
S or evacuated friends and smile?
Here are two samples gleaned from "Hints
from Heloise":
Pull up your solar walkway lights from
outside, if you have them, and place them through-
out the house to create a clear path at night during a
power outage; they can be recharged during daylight hours.


Keep a supply of 12-hour light sticks, which require no
batteries, create no fire hazards and are nonflammable, for
the kids to carry around.
We bet you have more. We'd like to hear your best ideas for
coping cleverly in weather emergencies. Please contact us
any time this week:
Just e-mail your idead to homes@naplesnews.com.
or ddavidson@sun-herald.com
Call (239) 213-6091 and leave a message with a telephone
number for a return call.
We'll print your best ideas Aug. 6 and possibly we'll all
live a little better the next time a storm calls on us.
