Bridge will never be widened


At least that's the
opinion of some with
the citv County
officials, however, are
not saying that on
the record.

BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Get used to Venice Avenue
Bridge only being two lanes.
because it's never going to be
widened.
That appears to be the
opinion of city officials based
on their conversations and
dealings with Sarasota Coutn-
ty. Venice Avenue is a county
road, so all funding and
responsibility for improve-
ments to and widening of the
bridge would come out of its
checkbook instead of the
city's.
Even if money weren't an
issue, there's debate as to
whether the bridge needs to
be four lanes and, if it were,
whether that would make
traffic problems better or
worse on the island.
"They (Sarasota Countyi
have made it premyr evident.
unless we're willing to pay for
it. they're never going to
widen the bridge." City
Manager Mary Black said.
Talk of widening Venice
Avenue Bridge has resurfaced
because of Mike Millers pro-
posed Waterfront Business
District. If it is approved, the
large-scale redevelopment
would border Venice Avenue
and. some fear, prevent plans
15-20 \ears from now to
widen the bridge from two
lanes to four.
- Sarasota County just fin-
ished its $3.5 million bridge
rehabilitation project. The
project included a dozen
pedestrian-passing zone cut-
dutsr that cost more than
$100,000 in an effort to make
the narrow walkways accessi-
ble to those with physical dis-
abilities.

VPD accused


of heavyhanded


tactics in case

The department disputes allegations that detec-
tives were too aggressive in their questioning of a
pregnant woman they suspected of cashing a
stolen check.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRliER

A businessman claims two
Venice police detectives used
intimidating tactics to try to
force his employee to admit
to a crime she did not com-
niit.
Richard T. Williams, owner
of Flagship Towing, said
detectives Howard Dunn and
Bob Perry came into his office
about 3:15 p.m. Thursday and
rousted his nine-months-
pregnant secretary.
"They barged into the
office without even introduc-
ing themselves, and forcefully
insisted she go into my office
to talk," Williams said. "They
said she tried to pass a stolen
check at CVS."
Williams was not there at
the time, but his operations
manager was and filled in his
boss. Williams would not give
the man's name.
.Williams said, and the vic-
tim confirmed in a telephone
interview witn a reporter, that
the detectives were verbally
abusive.
"Dunn told her, 'Just admit
it, we have you on camera,' "
Williams said. 'I know you
did it.'"
The victim said she did not
know what the police officers
were talking about. She said'
she could not believe how
badly she was being treated.
'Bullying' i
In a letter to Venice Police
Chief Jim Hanks, Williams laid
it on the line.
"They were bullying a
nine-month pregnant moth-
er into a confession for some-
thing she did not do and had


no knowledge of. 'We know
you did it' and they threat-
ened to take her to jail. Ms.
Jones (not her real name)
became hysterical, yet they.
continued to try to force a
confession, even though they
had no evidence whatsoever
that she was involved. They
only knew that a pregnant
woman was involved."
Hanks declined to com-
ment.
Lawyerng up
The victim said she was
flabbergasted first by the
accusation; then the way the
detectives treated her.
"It was more than an accu-
sation," Williams said, "It was
a threat."
The victim told the re-
porter she was overdue for
her delivery and the trauma
of the interrogation caused
her to havecontractions.
The victim said she is
shopping for-a lawyer.
'Perfectly normal'
Venice Deputy Chief Dan
McGoogan said he has al-
ready talked to Dunn and
Perry. He said they did ,oth-
ing wrong.
"I wasn't there but I do
know these guys are very pro-
fessional and I don't think it
happened the way Williams
and she claim it did," Mc-
Googan said. "It is perfectly
normal for police to develop
evidence pointing to a partic-
ular suspect and confront the
suspect with that evidence."
McGoogan said that is ex-
actly what Dunn and. Perry
did.

On Tuesday Gov. Jeb Bush
and the Department of Edu-
cation Secretary Jolm Winn
announced the Florida coun-
ties in which students scored
the biggest gains in mathe-
matics, overall math profi-
ciency and overall writing
proficiency on the 2005 Flor-
ida Comprehensive Asses-
sment Tests.
Charlotte County, which
was nearly obliterated by
Hurricane Charley last year,
made all three lists while
Sarasota County was not on
any of them.
School board member
Laura Benson believes this is
partially due to the instability
in the superintendent posi-
tion in the past few years.
"When the referendum
passed we lost our superin-
tendent to health concerns.
(Wilma Hamilton's) leader-
ship for implementing and
sheparding successful pro-


grams was lost. Until Gary
(Norris) arrived last year, we
were in a holding pattern."
Benson said
Adequate support
Barry Dubin, executive, di-
rector of the Sarasota Clas-
sified Teachers Association,
thinks that this problem can
be directly linked to the
amount of funding for teach-
ers and teacher training.
"Not enough of the money
that was promised for teacher
salaries went to teacher sal-
aries, so the district has been
competing unsuccessfully for
Snew teachers," Dubin said in
an e-mail interview: "If you
look at the Sarasota average
teachers' salary in relation to
the state average teachers'
salary, we have actually lost
ground since the referendum
passed."
According to Dubin, Sara-
sota teachers' salaries for the
2000-2001 school year were
10 percent, more than the

Keeping children in gear for the new school year


Briana Hall receives a check for reading during the summer.


The Laurel Community Center's youth
programs give kids an alternative to activities that
might get them in trouble, while helping them in
school, too.
BYJEREMYROTTGEN .
STAFF WRITER .


Time for pencils, time for
books, time for teacher's dirm
looks.
It'sabout that time for chil -
dren to go back to school.
Some of those children were
participating in programs at
the Laurel Community
Center. The center ensures
those children stayed busy.
Last Wednesday the center
had a family dinner and
"graduation" for children
involved in the LCC's summer
programs including two of its
most popular programs,
Earning by Learning and Teen
Empowerment. The Earning
by Learning reading program
gave children the opportunity
to get $36 for reading books.
Executive Director Sandra
Terry handed out checks to
the children.
"I like what I'm seeing out
there," she said.
Families were given games
to play and prizes were hand-
ed out throughout the event.
The checks were for the
more than 100 children who
participated in the reading
program. The family dinner
night was funded by
Community Youth
Development as an opportu-
nity for families to have the
chance to have dinner and
play games together.
An ice cream social ,also
was part of the event to
reward the children for being
in the programs.

According to the LCC, the
summer reading program
was created for reluctant
readers who are below their
reading level or at risk of
falling behind. The children
are given sixweeks each sum-
mer to do the reading. Each
week participants choose a
book to take home and read,
bring it back the next week
and discuss it with a volun-
teer and then choose another
book
The 12-year-old program
is made possible with the
help of volunteers and sup-
port from Laurel Nokomis
School. Major contributors
for the reading program are
the Sarasota County Medical
Society Foundation, the
Florida Winefest and Auction
and Grants-In-Aid.
In prior years the reading
program has had as many as
125 children participate.
CYD
Community Youth De-
velopment is a program that
offers Sarasota County mid-
dle and high-school age
youth opportunities to partic-
ipate in positive, drug- and
alcohol-free activities. It tries
to provide a place where
youth and adults work as
equal partners to make all
decisions regarding how the
program operates. Youth-
adult partnerships are uti-
lized in all areas of the pro-
gram, from hiring staff, devel-
oping programs and budgets,
and establishing policy and
procedures.

engagement, encouraging
community leaders to involve
youth in all areas of civic life.
The collaboration of youth
and adults who are working
to improve the lives of teens
in Sarasota County.
"We did this in sites all
across the county," said
Karen Bogues, director of
CYD. "The idea was we were
trying to provide opportunity
for children and families to be
together."
Other family dinner sites
included the South County
YMCA and the Boys and Girls
Clubs of North Port and
Sarasota.
"The Laurel Civic
Association is a partner of
CYD, so that's why we chose
them. Sandra was one of the
people who signed the origi-
nal grant for the CYD,"
Bogues said.

Programs
Other programs available
at the center are so valuable
that children come all the way
from North Port to take
advantage of them.
"When I first came here
Sandra told me if I could get
just more black males to
graduate from high school,
we'd be doing something
right," said John Jefferson,
program coordinator for the
Laurel Civic Association.
In the last Homework
Assistance Program, 86 chil-
dren participated. Monday
through Thursday, there are
more than 65 children
involved in the program. It
started 13 years ago in order
to instill an appreciation and
commitment to school, teach
volunteerism, learn social
skills and enhance self worth.
Volunteers keep the program
rolling.
All of the children who par-
ticipated in last year's pro-
grams atthe LCC advanced to
the next grade and passed the
FCAT.
"We follow them from 4
years old all the way to col-

lege." Jefferson said.
This year's summer camp
was also a success for the
LCC. Every weekday during
the summer children enter
the center from 7:30 a.m. to
5:30 p.m.
There were 106 teens in the
Teen Empowerment pro-
gram; 86 children participate
in the after-school program at
the center. This program is
designed to get to youth
before they get into trouble,
giving them a stipend while
learning, developing social
skills, participating in job
shadowing and preparing for
self-sufficiency.


Children at the Laurel
Community Center learn
valuable life lessons. Not only
do they learn that education
is important, but they also
learn that the choices they
make will affect their lives.
Most of the other programs at
the center are just as, if iot
more successful at accom-
plishing their goals.
"Any of our kids are not,
involved in drug or alcohol
abuse," Jefferson said. "We get
to them before they get in
trouble."

Get immunizations; no shots, no school


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


The Sarasota County
Health Department, which
supplies the school district
with nurses, warns that chil-
dren without up-to-date im-
munizations will be sent
home from school Aug. 8.
And a health department
nurse added the caution that
the health department would
be filled with children next
week, all waiting for a chicken
pox vaccination and other
shots.
"The good news this year is
that there aren't many immu-
nization requirements," said
Dianne Shipley, health edu-
cator for the Sarasota County
Health Department. "The
chicken pox vaccination is
one of the requirements. It's a
quick and easy vaccination."
Shipley said the health
department will provide the
schools up-to-date informa-
tion on all students who have
had their shots as of this
week.
School principals will also
receive new information on
the first day of school.
Students who have not had
the necessary shots will be
considered out of compliance
with state regulations.
"We want to reach parents
of students who have moved
here from out of state,"
Shipley said. "It usually takes
a little longer to make sure the
documents are current. It's
much better if this is done
ahead of time before school
starts. We really hope parents
make this a priority. It helps
the process if they have all of
the records for us."

Back-to-school tips to start the year off right


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT


Here comes another
school year. How can you
ensure a successful school
experience for your child this
year? Here are a few tips to get
offto a good start.
Help your child be neat
and organized. When buying
those beginning-of-the-year
school supplies, don't forget
topurchase some sort of file
container and a box of file
folders.
,:-Begin the year by showing
your child (no matter what
his age) to keeppapers, which
may serve as study aids for


review for chapter and unit
tests, filed neatly.
Do this before that back-
pack becomes a mess of wrin-
kled and torn assignments,
some completed and some
needing to be turned in, but
lost in the disarray. Keep
papers filed by subject and
date. Create a habit of empty-
ing the backpack, looking
over assignments and filing
together before beginning
homework.
A file drawer of his own in
the family file cabinet, or one
of those colorful plastic crates
with labeled folders, will
motivate a child to develop
an organizational habit that
will serve him through life, as
well as help him get better
grades on tests.
In addition, if a child starts
to get discouraged you can
pull out some of his earlier
papers and compare them
with current performance,
pointing out progress he may
not have realized.
Set goals together and
write them down. Successful


people set goals for them-
selves and write them down.
Ask your child what grade he
would like to receive in each
class. Then help him come up
with a list of things that he
will do to reach this goal. This
may require some input from
teachers.
Put this list where it will be
seen daily, and check for fol-
low-up as often as necessary.
If you can present this as a
technique that people in
business use, your child may
be more receptive to the idea.
In the long run this
method will help him see the
benefits of having a plan. He
will feel more in control of
and be more likely to get bet-
ter grades.
Be a benevolent dictator.
Dr. Ruth Peters, author of
"Overcoming Underachiev-
ing," tells parents to be a
"benevolent dictator." She
says to let your child have a
vote when there are decisions
to make, but make it clear
that you have the final vote.
Children who know that


parents and teachers have the
final word do better in school.
They are less inclined to
waste precious learning time
whining and arguing.
Communicate with your
child's teacher. If your child
routinely says that he doesn't
have any homework or that
he has finished it at school,
call his teacher to double
check.
Parents often complain
they did not know that their
child was having trouble in
school until the report card
came out. Make it a point to
know how your child is doing.
Find out the best time to
talk to the teacher, and ask
specific questions. "How is
Johnny doing in your class?"
is not being specific. Instead,
ask, "Is there anything you
would like me to help him
with at home? Do you think
he.is doing his best in your
class?".
Keep extra curricular
activities and teens' work
schedules reasonable. This
can be a tough one. It can be


difficult to make choices
among all the activities that
are available to children.
Before you know it you
choose too many, and your
child is scheduled to the max.
This can leave little time to
finish homework or school
projects.
Teen-agers who take part-
time jobs often end up work-
ing full-time hours. School-
work suffers either because
there is no time to study, or
they are too exhausted while
at school.
Build your child's im-
mune system with sleep and
nutrition. It stands to reason
that a healthy, well-rested and
well-fed child will be better
able to absorb and retain
more information. He is less
likely to miss days of school
due to illness.
Poor nutrition, including
eating sugar-coated cereals or
skipping breakfast altogether,
affects a child's ability to stay
attentive.
If your child has a habit of
staying up until the wee


hours of the night doing
homework, chatting on the
computer or watching late
night TV, it's time to take con-
trol.
Sleep plays a major role in
determining moods and
allowing for ability to concen-
trate.
Most children need at least
10 hours a night for optimal
performance.

WISDOM TEETH-REMOVE OR NOTREMOVE?
Wisdom teeth is the name commonly given to the third permanent
molars. They lie in the very back of the mouth and, as a result, are often
crowded and impact (wedged against at an angle) the tooth in front of
them. If they are not impacted, their removal is no more complicated I
than any other tooth. Sometimes, however, it is important to extract
these teeth promptly to avoid complications.
Possible complications of waiting include: pain, swelling, and loss of
much of your chewing ability. These things often occur as the tooth
attempts to erupt through the gum and creates a flap under which food
can become trapped. This decaying food debris becomes an ideal
place for bacteria to develop which in turn leads to infection and its
problems which include: prolonged recover time, increased cost of
treatment, and danger to the patient's general health. Most surgical
problems from wisdom teeth occur in patients who have waited too
long. If extractions are needed, have them done promptly.

BRIDGE frompage 1A
ment on a city-county part-
nership to paint what former
council member Jim Myers
has nicknamed "the dirty
bridge" after numerous com-
plaints. County commission-
ers and city council members
agreed to this five months
ago, but there have been no
proposals:
Sarasota County hopes the
rehabilitation of the 40-year-
old bridge will last at least 15
years. There were no formal
requests and little input from
the public about widening
the bridge when the rehab
project was being organized,
according to Susan Walsh,
spokeswoman for Sarasota
County Public Works.
"I hate to say never," Walsh
'said. "Never is a strong word. I
can say, it's not in the five-year
improvement project (bud-
get)."
More'never' thoughts
The only government offi-
cials ready to say "never"
when it comes to bridge
widening are on Venice City
Council.
Some of the reasoning is
how the bridge itself was'
built. The city manager, a for-
mer city planner, explained
that Sarasota County built the
bridge down .the middle of
the right of way instead of to
one side or the other. This
means it must be replaced
instead ofjust'widened.
If the bridge had been built
to one side of the right of way,
an additional two lanes could.
have been added, Black said.
Council member Fredc
Hammett and Mayor Dean
Calamaras also said they've
heard county commissioners
and officials make passing
comments that the bridge
would never be widened.
"The county has stated for
years it has no interest in
expanding that bridge to four
lanes," Calamaras said.
Local resident Dick Wind-
gassen is having a hard time
accepting this; He spoke with
council Tuesday about the
need to get moving on bridge
widening. because of the
Waterfront project.


"The county has stated
for years it has no
interest in expanding
that bridge to four
lanes."
Mayor Dean
Calamaras, talking
about Venice Avenue
Bridge

He was surprised to hear
council say the county will
not widen the bridge.
"So what's the truth here?"
Windgassen asked council.
"What's to be done about the
bridge?"
Traffic concerns
The city manager has said
there is not enough land and
room on the island side of the
bridge to dump four lanes of
traffic into the West Venice
Avenue and U.S. 41 Business
intersection.
Another problem is the
character of downtown Ven-
ice, Black said. A redesigned
U.S. 41 Business/Venice Ave-
nue intersection would com-
pletely change the city's main
entranceway.
Cars headed westbound
would be going faster, and
more eastbound cars would
be stuck on the bridge.
As it is, some question if
Venice truly needs two more
lanes of traffic heading onto
the bridge. Between the state
widening U.S. 41 Business
and the Circus Bridge, there
are 10 lanes of traffic heading
on and off the island.
Some Florida islands are
lucky to have four lanes, Black
said.
"(By widening) you may
have done nothing except
create a parking lot on the
bridge," Black said. "You
widen Venice Avenue Bridge,
and that's going to mean sub-
stantial changes for down-
town. ... Are you making this
decision so it's easier for ears
to drive through or for people
to walk downtown?"

Mooring regulations shelved until fall


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A simplified Sarasota
County mooring ordinance
that would treat recreational
boaters who sometimes
choose to sleep aboard the
same as live-aboard boat
owners whose vessels are
their homes has been put on
the back shelf until mid-
November.
"There was a fear it would
conflict with Florida law and
the county attorney's office
canceled advertising it for
public hearing to be pru-
dent," said Matt Osterhoudt;
a county resource protection


scientist. "We've resolved the
issue and will bring it back
when the schedule allows."
While nothing is set in
stone, tentative plans call for
the county commission to
review the changes again on
Oct. 25 and advertise them for
a public hearing on Nov. 22.
No explanation has so far
been offered for such a
lengthy delay in rescheduling.
"There were comments
from the public that suggest-
ed the ordinance was in con-
flict with state law," Oster-
houdt said. "Our attorneys
found the language reason-
able and felt it did not pose a
conflict. The extra time has


also given us a chance to
tighten up some portions."
Motivation
Mooring changes were ini-
tiated by commissioner Nora
Patterson, who encouraged
the county to beef up its regu-
lations when a- Siesta Key
waterfront property owner
complained about a boat
moored near his residence for
more than a week.
"It was during last sum-
mer's hurricane season and
he told me someone moved a
large boat about 1 inch from
his dock," she previously said.
"A week later, he called the
sheriff and was told the coun-


ty has no regulations to pre-
vent it. So the boat remained
there for several weeks."
County natural resources
officials drafted regulations
based on Florida law, mea-
sures previously adopted by
Longboat Key, the city of
Sarasota, and those then
under consideration by the
city of Venice. Venice has
since adopted its regulations.
Organizations such as the
Siesta Key Association re-
viewed them.
When several commis-
sioners questioned whether
the changes amounted to

"Here's what happened,"
McGoogan said. "There was a
check stolen at Publix. The
surveillance cameras at CVS
caught a couple trying to cash
it. The female was very preg-
nant. The investigation led to
the victim, who used to work
at Publix."
After the victim talked to
Dunn and Perry, they did not
arrest her. They said they
would do more investigating.

the CVS surveillance tapes
again. What they learned was
ended the investigation.
"The female on the tape
did not have a tattoo," Mc-
Googan said. "The other
woman does have a tattoo
that would have been,plainly
visible on the tape, so that
was that."
After viewing the tape,


McGoogan said, Dunn called
the victim.
"You're off the hook," he
said.
McGoogan said he also has
talked with the victim's father.
"He is OK'with the way
Dunn and Perry handled it,"
Mcgoogan said.
McGoogan said Flagship is
on the department's rotation
list for towing cars from the
scene of crashes.


McGoogan and Williams
said the relationship between
the police department and
Flagship has been good.
Williams said he tele-
phoned his complaint to
Venice City Manager Marty
Black, but has not gotten a
reply.

state average, while in the
2004-2005 school year they
dropped to 8 percent.
"We actually dropped
compared to our colleagues
statewide, all but one of
which did not have a referen-
dum," Dubin pointed out
Benson feels that teacher
support in ways other than
just higher pay is another key
to improving the perfor-
mance level of our students.
"Giving our teachers ade-


quate support, proper train-
ing and the tools they need to
be successful will show great-
er improvements than simply
having more (teachers)."i,
Remembering
their pledge
SC/TA recently proposed a
7-percent across the board
salary increase for Sarasota
County school teachers. This
would help draw in new
teachers as well as make the


high cost of Sarasota County
living slightly more bearable
for existing teachers, accord-
ing to Dubin.
The school board has yet
to decide on the matter, but
Dubin believes the odds
aren't looking very good.
"Frankly, I think all indica-
tions are that the board
intends to give us a meager
raise again this year," he said.
Dibin believes that one of
the initial purposes of the ref-


erendum may have been lost
and that this year could begin
a big fight over salary if the
board does not live up to its
original promises.
"When the referendum
was passed it was passed for
three things: restore program
cuts, lower class size, and
greatly improve teacher sal-
aries. It's time this board
remembers the last pledge,"
Dubin wrote in an e-mail
interview.

CONSIDER BONDS.

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

over-regulation, Patterson
explained her objective was-
n't to keep people from fish-
ing and having a good time,
but to stop them from
anchoring next to homes for
long periods.
The commission finally
agreed to prohibit recreation-
al and live-aboard boaters
from mooring within 300 feet
of residential property for
more than 24 hours without
obtaining permission from
the property owner that can
be verified by a sheriff's
deputy.
It also stipulated that all
boats- passing through the
county cannot anchor in
open waters for more than 72
hours within a 30-day period.
The measure encourages live-
aboard boaters to moor at
marinas and other licensed
establishments.
In addition to regulating
live-aboard boat owners and
recreational boaters, who


sometimes sleep over for a
night or two in county waters,
the proposed rule changes
address mooring on public
and private property, deterio-
rated boats, disabled boats
and abandoned boats.
Agencies that helped early
draft versions of the proposed
changes include the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission, the
county's Natural Resources,
Resource Protection, Coastal
Resources and Parks and
Recreation divisions and the
sheriff's office.

It's not as easy as Lance makes it look


BY ROB SHORE
STAFF WRITER


Michael Lamond
THE ZONE


Anybody

need half a

gap wedge?

I had the strangest thing
happen to me on the golf
course recently. I was play-
ing at Waterford on the.
Sawgrass nine, which I think
would be a great place for a
golf course. someday, when
my gap wedge spontaneous-
ly-snapped.
Now, I happened to be
holding it at the time, but
there was nothing I could do
about it. That club had hit its
last bad shot.
Sometimes it's not your
fault. I called Ping to see if
there was a recall for
naughty gap wedges but
they just laughed and hung
up.
I, on the other hand, am
sure that it must be an
equipment .failure. Those
flimsy shafts just don't hold
up like they used to. It
seemed to take almost no
effort to make the clubhead
bend around to the grip.
It has been almost two
years since the last time I
broke a club in anger.-There is
an old adage that states it's
not the arrow but the Indian,
and that is certainly true.
Another says that a good car-
penter doesn't blame his
tools.
I am thinking that I can sell
the grip half on eBay as a
midget trash picker and save
some of my investment. The
head, however, is evil and I
believe I'm going let it rot in
the noonday sun for eternity.
Or until Ping recalls them,
which ever comes first.
I have been having wedge
issues lately anyway, what
with the tragic loss of my
trusty sand wedge and the
sudden snappage of the
aforementioned evil gap
wedge.
Sometimes you have to
start over You should never
be so attached to your clubs
that you don't consider
change.
I know a very good player
who seems to have a new dri-
ver or 3-wood or rescue club
every time I see him. I believe
he is just searching for some-
thing better. It also doesn't
hurt.that he has more equip-
ment than John Deere.
When a club becomes dis-
agreeable, off it goes to the
land of darkness and despair.
It's a little like an NFL team
before free agency, where if
the player decided to holdout
the owner would just plunk
him on the bench until he
came around. When the play-
er decided to play nice and do
what he was told, he could
resume his career.
Of course, football players
have agents and golf clubs
don't.
See ya.

Python 14s tryouts
The Venice Pythons 14-
and-under AAU baseball
team will hold tryouts for its
upcoming fall season on
Sunday, July 31, at 2 p.m. at
Wellfield No. 1. Players from
Charlotte County are wel-
come. The season will begin
the Labor Day weekend.
Coaches include Pete
Dombroski and Larry
Sandburg. Call Jim Hanks at

The one big negative
about Lance Armstrong
winning seven straight Tour
de France titles is that he
makes it look so easy.
Which is to say that if
Armstrong and the rest of
the riders chasing the Tour
de France crown can ride
more than 100 miles
through the Alps in one day,
certainly it wouldn't be any-
thing to ride 17 miles with
the Coastal Cruisers on the
utterly flat terrain of Venice
island.
Warning' Do not try this
at home! (Especially, if
you're a couch potato such
as myself.)
"This will be a leisurely,
17-mile ride," ride leader
Richie Huttner said. "Then,
some of us will do 10 more
miles at a more moderate
pace."
Excellent, I thought..I can
do. moderate. My fear of the
mileage that lay ahead of me
was starting to wane. (I had
somehow forgotten that the
first 17 miles might have
been more mileage than I'd
covered in the last two years
combined.)
The Coastal Cruisers, a
cycling club based in South-
west Florida, (coastalcruisers
.net,) has about 380 mem-
bers, according to Huttner,
with about 20 rides of all diffi-
culties scheduled weekly. This
ride attracted a wide array of
cyclists.
Walter Taylor of Rotonda
West rides 30 miles every day
and- goes on rides with the
club three times a week. Cora
Mooney-Graves averages two


PHOTO COURTESY OF COASTAL CRUISERS
The Coastal Cruisers, a cycling club based in Southwest Florida has about 380 members. The ,
light Venice 17-mile ride, one of the favorites of the club, started at Centennial Park through the
streets of Venice, along the Intercoastal Waterway to Casperson Park, on to the South Jetty and
back to the Centennial Park.


rides per week, about 6-8
miles, right around her
house.
"During the summer, you
never know (how many riders
you'll get)," Huttner said. "We
could get six, we could get
.20."
The light Venice 17-mile
ride, one of the favorites of
the club, started at Cen-
tennial Park through the
streets of Venice, along the
Intercoastal Waterway to
Casperson Park, on to the
South Jetty and back to the
Centennial Park. The ad-


vanced riders then picked up
the pace on the optional ride
to the North Jetty.
Through Casperson Park
(roughly halfway), I was OK,
managing to keep pace with
the leaders, expertly (I
thought) moving through the
pack.
On the way to the South
Jetty, I lost all my "moderate
pace," arriving well after the
rest of the riders, who were
waiting.
"Now you know what it
feels like for Lance," one
quipped.


I nodded, but somehow
doubted this. (Armstrong
hasn't finished last much late-
ly.)
"Yeah, but Lance rides 100
miles," another said.
Somehow, this didn't make
me feel better. Armstrong
may be a talisman for the
sport of cycling, but the atten-
tion this group of cyclists paid
to his exploits varied greatly.
"I watch three hours every
day," Huttner said. "I don't
watch sports, but this guy
really inspires me. And this
guy was practically dead from


cancer. He's inspirational,
very inspirational."
Huttner began riding after
he retired about five years
ago, which wouldput his start
close to the start of
Armstrong's string of Tour de
France titles, a coincidence.
But he can't believe cycling
will lose too much steam with
Armstrong's retirement or the
Texan just vanishing from the
sport.
"I think (cycling) has
enough steam," Huttner said.
"I think he'll keep doing stuff.
I can't imagine imagine him
dropping out."
Taylor agreed.
"I don't think it will have
any effect at all, especially in
Florida," he said. "There are
so many retirees and the
weather is so wonderful, you
can cycle all year long. And in
the winter with the snow-
birds, there are three times as
many bikers."
Wayne Pommier used to
drive from Arcadia to join the
Coastal Cruisers for rides.
When Hurricane Charley
wrecked his house and forced
him to move to Tampa, it just
made the drive longer for
club events.
"I rode a bit as a kid,"
Pommier said. "I had my first
heart operations in 1984. I got
(back) into it then. Before
that, I was pretty much a.
couch potato."
SPommier follows the.Tour
only casually, seeing the high-
lights on the news.
"It's actually kind of boring ~
to tell you the truth," he.
admitted.
But watching Armstrong
win for the seventh time, he
obviously knows it's not as
easy as Lance makes it look.


Some observations leaning on the fence


RAY SINIBALDI
SPORTS COLUMNIST


SLast Saturday I took in a
bit of the Little League
Sectional Tournament at the
Braden River Little League
Complex. I had to get my fix
in because. one, I love base-
ball and two I think Little
League All Star competition
is among the most fun and
exciting events in all of ama-
teur sports.


Venice was represented by
District Champs at both the
9-10 and 13-14 year old levels.
I peeked in on a number of
different contests and observ-
e.d a number of interesting
feats and interactions.
When one observes mom-
mys and daddies observing
their offspring in competitive
athletic endeavors, there is a
degree of what I lovingly refer
to as "knuckleheadness"
which is both amusing and at
times a bit scary.
We moms and dads bring
an intense level of emotional
involvement to the table in
such endeavors which at
times can cloud our view and
judgment. This is what leads
to the aforementioned
"knuckleheadness".
Therefore, in the interest of
clearing up this clouded view
and judgment, I offer the fol-.
lowing observations and sug-
gestions.
Observation no. 1. I was
watching a 9-10 year old


game and a hard ground ball
was hit to an infielder who
fielded it cleanly and then
launched it into the outfield.
A groan from the stands was
followed up with a shout from
an encouraging Mom. "Good
job." What? Good job? Please.
Launching a ball into the out-
field does not constitute a
good job. Everyone who plays
the game knows that -and
above all little Johnny
Launcher knows it. Baseball is
a.game that is built on recov-
ering from failure and mis-
takes. Hmm, sounds a bit.like
life doesn't it. Why are we so
afraid to accept that our little
ones will err and teach them
how to battle back from the
error rather than call it some-
thing else? The reality was
that Johnny Launcher didn't
get his feet set, hurried the
throw and hence the launch.
No big deal. It happens at
every level from 9-10s to the
bigs. How will he learn and
improve if that somehow gets


Tropicana Field vegetarian-friendly


STAFF REPORT


Tampa Bay Devil Rays
fans are guaranteed to have
a great year at the conces-
sion stand. Tropicana Field
has been named to PETA's
annual list of the Top 10
Vegetarian Frien dly
Ballparks. The ballpark
offers such hits as beans and
rice, hearty veggie burgers,
bean burritos, and
"bloomin" onions.
PETA's "Vegetarian
Friendly Ballparks" project
examines the concessions
offerings sold inside each of
the 30 MLB stadiums and
ranks them based on the
variety and quality of vege-
tarian foods offered.
Why is meat striking out
with more and more fans? For
one thing, vegetarians have a
much lower incidence of life-


threatening ailments such as
heart attacks, cancer and
strokes, which means that
they can count on being
around a lot longer to root for
the home team.
Vegetarians are also lighter
and more energetic than
meat-eaters positive
attributes after the seventh
inning stretch. Many fans,
especially younger ones, are
looking for meatless options
as they become increasingly
aware of how farmed animals
are treated on factory farms
and in slaughterhouses. And
if fans knew about the pig lips
and intestines in those meat
hot dogs, they'd turn greener
than the outfield grass.
SBC Park, home of the San
Francisco Giants, claimed top
honors among this year's veg-
friendly ballparks. Rounding
out the all-star roster are


McAfee Coliseum (Oakland
A's); Coors Field (Colorado
Rockies); Rogers ,Centre
(Toronto Blue Jays); Bank One
Ballpark (Arizona Diamond-
backs); Citizens Bank Park
(Philadelphia Phillies);. Min-
ute Maid Park (Houston
Astros); Miller Park (Mil-
waukee Brewers); and Dol-
phins Stadium (Florida Mar-
lins) and PNC Park (Pitts-
burgh Pirates), who played to
atie.
"With the great cruelty-free
food choices available, Tampa
Bay Devil Rays are sure to be
slamming home runs in the
concessions stands this year,"
says Vegan Campaign Direc-
tor Bruce Friedrich.
Fans can call 1-888-VEG-
FOOD to order a free vegetar-
ian starter kit. For more infor-
mation, please visit PETA's

translated into "Good Job"?
Now don't hand me all that
stuff about maintaining his
S"self esteem." Self esteem will
be cultivated by accepting
responsibility for perfor-
mances, good or bad and
realizing that sometimes our
best efforts result in failure.
It's part of sports and part of
life.
Observation no. 2. This
game was a corker. Our
Venice 9 and 10s had battled
back from a 6-3 deficit and in
the bottom half of the sixth
rallied to tie the score 6-6.
They actually had the win-
ning run on third, however
they just couldn't punch it
across. A tribute to the oppos-
ing pitcher. In the top of the
seventh inning, Naples,
scored a run and our boys
couldn't, answer and thus
found themselves on the
short end of a 7-6 count. As
they were leaving the field a
dad made ,a comment that
"it's hard to beat an umpire".

That comment earns
daddy the number one
Knucklehead Award. There is
nothing more infuriating
than blaming an umpire for a
defeat. It demeans the efforts
of both teams, cultivates a
disrespect for the game and
above all gives the kids an
opportunity to blame some-
one else when things do not

ever going to learn to accept
responsibility for themselves
if daddy teaches them to sim-

This was a great game.
Both of these teams showed
tremendous heart. Our

Land program seems headed for ballot


In 1999, voters approved a .25 mill tax and a $53
million bond cap for land purchases. A ballot
proposal would extend the program until 2029
and raise the cap to $303 million.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

There maybe no high-pro-
file political races for Sarasota
County voters to weigh in on
this autumn, but it appears
they'll have a big-ticket land-
purchase decision to mull
over if a $250 million local
proposal is placed on the Nov.
1 ballot.
On Tuesday, the county
commission took another
step toward the consolidation
of its highly successful pro-
gram to buy and protect envi-


ronmentally sensitive lands
with a plan to purchase park
lands for playgrounds and
other neighborhood-related
activities.
What county officials rec-
ommended, and a majority of
the commission endorsed,
was an extension of the .25
mill tax for land purchases
from 2019 until 2029, and an
increase in the $53 million
cap on bonds to $303 million.
The lone dissenter was com-
missioner David Mills.
"Have you considered sep-
arating the two issues?" he


asked. "This started with a
proposal to raise the bond
cap from $53
million to $86 -
million. NowlT
you've come
back with a
$250 million
deal that
would be
spread over
another. 10
years. What Mills
are you buy-
ing?"
Natural Resources General
Manager Eric Sutton, who
recently announced his resig-
nation to take a job with the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, ticked
off a series of "green space"
possibilities that included
more land for boat-launching


facilities.
"My recommendation is
the money be
split 60-40,
with $150
million for the
purchase of
environmen-
tally sensitive
land and $100
mi llion
neighbor-
Staub hood park
land," he said.
'A good example would be
the 50-acre site you pur-
chased at Bee Ridge Road and
Honore Avenue."
Fully committed
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson worried that voters
might think the county would
bond all $250 million at one


time, and urged the majority
to temper ballot language
with phrases such as "up to"
and "not more than" so the
initiative wouldn't be per-
ceived as a one-time money
grab.
She also succeeded in sub-
stituting "neighborhood park
land" for "green space" in
ordinance language that will
be advertised for public hear-
ing before the ballot initiative
is finalized in September.
There is still some question
whether it will go forward.
"In August, when the com-
mission is in recess, we'll have
a conversation with the pub-
lic," commissioner Shannon
Staub said.
"When we comeback, will
there still be an opportunity
to take out park land and ask


for a bond cap increase to $86
million?"
She was assured there
was.
In 1992, the county com-
mission appointed a citi-
zens' panel to lay the
framework for an environ-
mentally sensitive lands
protection program and
identify priority areas.
An original list described
18 priority sites and a total of
about 36,000 acres.
The program got under
way in 1999 and has protect-
ed 44 properties in 20 protec-
tion sites a total 16,354
acres either through fee-
simple purchases or conser-
vation easements.
All $53 million of the cur-
rent bond cap has been com-
mitted to purchases.


Boat ramp project to cost about $17 million


A purchase agreement for 10.9 acres on

Sidewalk

funds OK'd
BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County is plan-
ning to build more, than 8
miles of 5-foot sidewalks for
the Englewood area.
The project, called Eng-
lewood Elementary Neigh-
borhood Enhancements, was
listed as a top priority in a
February county sidewalk pri-
oritization report.
This week, county com-
missioners approved $532,000
for the projects design.
The project is meant to
allow children to make their
way to.school safely. DMK
Associated will begin the
eight-month design process
next week, said Richard Upte-
graff, project manager. The
design includes nine covered
bus stops.
Once the designs are com-
plete, commissions must allo-
cate some $3.7 million for
sidewalk construction.
Among the streets due to
receive sidewalks on one side
of the road are:
New York Avenue, from.
Virginia Street to West Dear-
born Street.
Virginia Court, from State
Road 776 to McCall Road.
Old Englewood Road,
from Buchan Airport to S.R.
776.
Elm Street, from West
Dearborn Street to S.R. 776.
South BroadwayRoad, from
Riverview Drive to S.R. 776.
Stewart Street, from Bay
Park Drive to Elm Street.
Kilbourne Avenue, from
Stewart Street to Old Engle-
wood Road.
MagnoliaAvenue, fromWest
Dearborn Street to Cowles
Street.
Cowles Street, from Mag-.
nolia Avenue to S.R. 776.


next to the Intracoastal
Waterway.
How much it will cost to
clear and develop the site has
yet to be determined.
"All we've
i done is a pre-
liminary
investigation
of the water
":- '' depth and
habitat,"
S Parks Director
J John Mc-
SCarthy said.
Patterson "With engi-
neering and
permitting, we're probably
looking at about $1 million."
The contract with current
property owners Mary D. and
Donald G. Young Sr. includes
a handful of contingencies,
but barring legal obstacles it
should close on Jan. 6. Con-
tract terms will allow the sell-
ers to live on 1.3 acres for up
to a year after the sale is con-

cluded.
"Ifwe did not purchase this
site it would be sold off for the
development of condomini-.
ums," commissioner Jon
Thaxton said. "We might
choke on the price tag today,
but I can assure you that years
into the future we will not be
criticized."
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson disagreed. "I have no
sticker shock," she said.
"When you divide up the
number of waterfront acres
here, it's a pretty good deal.
When I saw this opportunity,
there was not a doubt in my
mind that we should buy it.
We still need more waterfront
access."
Too little, too late
While the county waits
for complete access to the
site, it will process a grant
application with the state
and attempt to recover half


the cost of constructing
ramps.
"The grants, are usually
$150,000, $200,000 or
$250,000," McCarthy *said.
"We will spend about
$500,000 for the ramps."
The county will pay more
than double what it could
have $17 million in pur-
chase and development costs
- because it offered less than
market value for two Phillippi
Creek marinas,, then lost
them when they were pur-
chased by Sarasota attorney
Stephen Voight Jr. for $8.4
million.
On Feb. 22, when the com-
mission finally allocated up to
$7 million for purchase of the
marinas, it was already too
late.
By then, Voight and other
local investors had measured
the highly competitive local
real estate market and were
prepared to pay more.

Summer blood



shortage 'critical'

Always low during the summer, the current sup-

hospitals.


BYGAVIN OFF

The local blood supply
pool is evaporating in the
summer sun.
Blood banks are reporting
low or critically low reserves

from the area. Both are steady

Davidson, donor develop-

Blood Centers. "It's a critical

She said the low supply
forces the bank to borrow
from sister banks throughout
the state.
Davidson said donations
decrease in the summer, both
because of the snowbirds'
retreat north and because of
vacations. Plus, people are

"I.don't know if we ever get
out of (the critical stage)

There are ways to meet the
need, however.
Davidson said Florida's

after a donor's third visit. The

Traveling the trail at Oscar Scherer is sheer delight


PHOTO COURTESY OF FRAN PALMIERI
The meandering Lester Finley Trail at Oscar Scherer State Park will take you through some of
Florida's natural beauty and past some of its abundant wildlife.


BY FRAN PALMERI
:GUEST WRITER

In spring, look for owls nest-
lingin the holes of dead trees. In
;summer, keep cool under the
canopy of pines and oaks. The
lend of November, the Virginia
Icreeper turns red, bringing a
festive air to the area.
The Lester Finley Trail is a
delight in all seasons, attract-
ing tourists, visitors in motor-
ized wheelchairs and "regu-
lars" on a lunchtime break.
As a young horticultural
student, Lester Finley helped
build this barrier-free trail
even after he started going
blind. After he was killed by a
hit-and-run driver, his par-
ents created a memorial
fund, and local foundations
andpri\ate donors pitched in
to help cover the costs.
Schoolchildren, park person-,
nel and volunteers all lent a
hand to finish the project,
which was completed in
1996.
The trail meanders along
South Creek through the
shaded canopy on what used
to be "The. Old Fisherman's
Trail." On either side of the
path, the "Real Florida" grows
rampant and wild.
Fallen trees lie haphazard-
ly where they came down in a
storm. Spanish ross is
strewn like tinsel over the live


oaks. Saw palmettos domi-
nate the landscape; their
, twisted trunks take on the
shapes of the dinosaurs who
roamed here eons ago.
Ferns spreading out in a
sunny spot appear to have
been planted. But they
weren't. The wildness is left
just as it is.
Over the years, the Finley
Trail has grown in popularity.
It's usually the first visited by
newcomers, while remaining
a favorite spot for habitues of
the park.
Dog walkers make it their
regular route. The fishing pier
near the top of the trail is a
draw for both the lazy who
lounge in the sun and the
serious who cast for snook,
snapper and mullet, under
the u\atchflt eye of the little
blue heron.
Tourists enjoy the mini-
waterfall by the bridge and


,pause to record scenes to tide
them over cold northern win-
,ters. Everyone congregates on
the benches by the butterfly
gardens.
The "locals" seem unper-
turbed by all the visitors.
Rabbits come and go.
Snakes travel back and forth
from the creek, bothered by
no one. Armadillos keep right
on rooting in ant hills. The
pileated woodpecker ham-'

mers away on dead tree
trunks. Even the bobcat may
put in an appearance on the
opposite shore, while the
occasional alligator cruises
by.
Looking for the scrub jay?
He can be found in the scrub-
by oak areas further into the.
park.
The other "natives" spread
out in the butterfly gardens.
Spotted horsemint, frog fruit
and hog plum (butterflies
prefer plants with outlandish
names) flower off and on
throughout the year. On most
days you can see butterflies.
The bright yellow giant sul-
phur delights children who
skip along the wooden
pavers. The striking black and
gold zebra longwing, Florida's
state butterfly, is a year-round
resident.
A leisurely walk along the
half-mile loop path takes
about 20 minutes. Why rush?
Benches, picnic tables, even a
drinking fountain along the
way, create an oasis of calm.
Best seat in the house is
the bench on the water where
you can watch the herons
fish.
A word of caution: poison
ivy is abundant. It's best to
stick to the trail.
Late in the afternoon,
when the crowds have thin-
ned out, all is quiet. Just one
lone fisherman remains on
the pier. The sun is low in the
sky and the heat of day has
passed. Even the lizards seem
to be sleeping.
Bring your supper and sit
at the picnic table by the
water and if the time is right,
watch the full moon rise over
the creek.

OUR VIEW



Changes to FEMA policies finally being made


Everyone who experienced
Hurricane Charley can relate to the hot-
and-cold relationship the area has had
with; the Federal Emergency
Management Agency.
In the days and weeks following Charley's
havoc, we embraced the quick response, the
helping hand and the promises of aid.
Months later, as that aid stalled in red tape,
and promises turned into maybes, attitudes
toward FEMA soured.
The recent appointment of Scott Morris as
FEMAs long-term recovery director gave the
region new hope. Morris has made a good
first impression and the idea that we have a
fresh face who will concentrate solely on eco-
nomic issues forced upon us by last sum-
mer's devastating quartet of hurricanes is


good.
Still, the problems within FEMA's system
- the glitches in Washington, D.C., higher-
ups receiving and responding to decisions
made on the ground and the time it takes to
get money approved by Congress into the
hands of local governments are issues that
must be addressed.
Sen. Bill Nelson, D.-Florida, and Rep. Mark
Foley, R.-Florida, have been at the forefront
of a move to change the way FEMA does
business.
Recently, Nelson's consistent prodding
paid off when the Senate approved three
reform measures that target FEMA policy.
Nelson was able to include three amend-
ments in a broad homeland security spend-
ing bill. Those amendments, if accepted in


the final version, will do some good things,
including:
Require FEMA to report to the Senate
Homeland Security and House
Transportation committees within 60 days
on what changes it has made in response to a
recent inspector general's report concerning
numerous problems in the agency.
Make FEMA issue consistent and uni-
form guidelines to local governments regard-
ing reimbursement for hurricane debris
removal. The Florida Association of Counties
has told Nelson its top concern was an incon-
sistent policy on debris removal. PEMA and
Charlotte County are embroiled in a debate
now on how much the county will be reim-
bursed for debris removal after FEMA sug-
gested its original estimates may have been


too high.
Finally, Nelson would require FEMA to
issue new guidelines on claims inspectors
within 90 days to prohibit them from enter-
ing into contracts with people they inspect.
This amendment- is aimed at preventing
FEMA inspectors from swindling hurricane
victims out of their property. This amend-
ment was in response to Nelson's learning of
a Florida woman who sold her storm-dam-
aged home, worth $1 million, to a claims
inspector for $250,000.
FEMA's own people are aware there are
problems in the system. Thanks to Nelson,
and the Senate, we may be on the road to
ironing out some of the bumps in the road to
recovery just in time for the height of the
season for Southwest Florida.


Not all ideas


are


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

Many years ago Bon Se-
cours Venice Hospital was try-
ing to solve many problems
while providing more service.
It was losing money on some
of its veiiitres and wanted to
cut its losses.
One such venture was the
blood bank, which was very
handily located across the
street from-the hospital. A lot
of people were disappointed
to see BSVH sell off the blood
bank, which then went to
Nokomis, which was a lot less
convenient and not directly
tied to the hospital.
Yet it seemed maybe it
wasn't too bad a choice, as
Bon Secours decided to use
that convenient space to
solve other problems and
maybe, just maybe, turn it
into a money-making opera-
tion.
The idea, which sounded
good at the time, was to put in
a walk-in clinic, with long
.hours seven days a week. It
was an attempt to free up the
emergency room from deal-
ing with large numbers of
patients that had a lot of
minor ailments, thus allowing
it to do a better job with all the
cases. This really seemed like
a win-win.
There was a walk-in clinic
in the Tandem Center,' about
a quarter-mile away, that had.
been in business for a long
time and been very success-
ful. I am sure the thought was
BSVH could capture some of
that business and really
watch that bottom line sing.
Faster treatment would bring
better word of mouth that
people would no longer wait
for hours in the ER, which had'
been a problem.
This concept, however,
never seemed to catch on. For
one thing, many people were
confused and didn't know
one from the other. People
would walk into the walk-in
clinic thinking they were in
the emergency room, or walk
into the emergency room
either not knowing about the
clinic or preferring to go
there, maybe thinking their
insurance would only work at
the ER.
Someone who'goes to the
emergency room cannot be
turned away, so the hospital
couldn't say, "Go across the
street to our walk-in and
you'll get treated faster." And
a person at the walk-in could
be, and often was, sent or


ones


transported to the emergency
room.
As time went on the long
hours of operation became
shorter, and when you a real-
ly wanted a walk-in clinic it
sometimes wasn't open.
The other problem was
That it was not well promoted,
so people just did not get the
message and couldn't figure
out the difference between
the two. One of the challenges
in this market is that the pop-
ulation changes so much
between season and off sea-
son that promoting all year is
critical if you want your mes-
sage to get out.
The money-making aspect
didn't materialize either, I
would surmise. It costs a lot to
have two separate staffs doing
similar duties. To operate the
building and all that goes with
it was expensive. Consol-
idation, I would guess, helps
organization and staffing.
There are many things that
HMA will do to get this hospi-
tal profitable, and at the same
time I know it wants to
increase service. Some of that
is through tighter benefits
Sand practices. Some hospitals
get in the government mode
of giving unusually high ben-
efits, which end up making it
hard to make the numbers
work.
HMA has had a reputation
of running a tighter ship while
still being a good community
partner. An example of that
was the $20,000 it raised for
UnitedWay, the most ever
from that facility.
This is one change that will
likely not be bad and will help
make the hospital stronger
for the future.
Nowwe can have fun spec-
ulating on the use of the for-
.'mer clinic's space. Give me
your ideas and I'll pass them
on.
How about a nice workout
spot for employees, a little
perk that might attract more
people?

By's Crack: Do you
Wonder if Dr. Ruth's hus-
band ever asked, "Just a
minute, Ruth. Where'd you
learn all that stuff?"

There is another birthday
person this week. This gal is
active in Sertoma and is
known for selling her wares
for her company Comcast,
that is. Lori Greenberg has
just turned 210 ir dog years,
or 30 in people time.

We have been working on
the new TV book. For some
reason the new book has had
fewer movies than we wanted
in the detailed section. We are
working on fixing that; to help
we are adding four pages.

LETTERS FROM OUR ADERS

Parents of ECC children react to letter writer


EDITOR'S NOTE: The following letter ran in the July 24-25 edition of
the Venice Gondolier Sun. The responses to it received to date appear
below.

Did 70 children all
have bad parents?
Editor:
I am in dismay as I finish
reading the letter you pub-
lished .from Mr. Farley as he
attempts to make judgment
on another writer.
He states: "Under my rules,
,the child of Lisa M. Blaise
would probably have lasted
less than a week." Does he
know this child personally?
Does he know Mrs. Blaise
personally?
SDoes he know this child
truly misbehaved to an extent
that justified physical and
emotional abuse? His letter
insinuates the child caused
his punishment or; for that
matter, the child's parents
caused it.
Since the VPD report lists
70-plus toddlers who endur-
ed policeidocumented abu-
sive acts, Mr. Farley must
believe all of these children
had improper parenting.

Don't criticize
without facts
Editor:
.Mr. Farley, how dare you
suggest that what happened
to these innocent children
was the result of lack of disci-
pline at home? Until you have
walked one step in their little
shoes, I suggest you keep your
opinions to yourself.
Either you are extremely


ignorant or have not read one
page of the 750-page police
report. I would urge you to get
a copy of the report, sit down
and listen to the voices of the
teachers, aides and, most
important, the children.
My child was one of these
innocent children. It is just
heartbreaking that there are
people like you who don't
have all the facts, yet are so
eager to share what you
believe to be the truth.
There are no excuses for a
teacher to do the things that
were done to these little ones.
We as parents taught our chil-
dren respect and values, only
to have them, torn apart by
the very people we paid to
care for our children.
Until you have all the facts,
don't criticize our parenting
skills. I think you are forget-
ting that these were 2- to 5-
year-olds. All I can say is,
thank God you weren't in
charge.
Lisa McConnell
Venice
Read the report,
then comment
Editor:
The letter printed on July
24 from Dan Farley leaves me
puzzled.
I ask all of you reading this,
would you allow your chil-
dren to be force fed until they
vomit? Would you have your
child picked up at adult waist-
height and slammed to the
ground? Would you have your
child called vulgar names by a.
representative of the Venice
Presbyterian Church's Early
Childhood Center? I should
hope not.

Today's Ism (on a T-shirt):
My wild oats have turned to
'shredded wheat.

It is great to see the county
commission approved the
money to finish paving Bor-
der Road.

Faith Pridmore, executive
director of the Venetian
Waterway Park, is leaving to
pick up a career in financial
planning again. She has done
a great job of steering the pro-
ject through the funding
phases to now waiting for
'construction, which should
be done next spring.
That doesn't mean there
aren't more projects to come,
but a downsized position is
likely to be all that will be
needed, especially with the
talent the board has. One of
the exciting extensions of this
project will be the building a,
trail along Alligator Creek
from Jacaranda to the Intra-
coastal. The expansion from
the train depot to Sarasota
will also be important, al-
though the county will be
much more involved in that
one.
Tomorrow there's to be a
walk through of the old cham-
ber building so it can be
opened immediately as the
new headquarters of Venice
Area Beautification Inc. and
the trailhead for the VWP It
really can't be used as a trail-
head until the small piece in-
front of the unfinished por-
tion of the Waterford project
is done.
I know that VABI wants to
' expand beyond the waterway
project to some beautification
'projects not associated with
the trail, such as on U.S. 41
Bypass,'which had wonderful
work done on it south of
Center Road but no landscap-
ing.

The red planet
is on display
Editor:
The red planet is about to
be spectacular.
Earth is catching up with
Mars in an encounter that will
culminate in the closest ap-
proach between the two plan-
ets in recorded history.
The encounter will'culmi-
nate on Aug. 27, when Mars
comes within 34,649,589
miles of the Earth and will be
(next to the moon) the bright-
est object in the night sky.
Mars will look as large as
the full moon to the naked
eye.
By the end ofAugust, when
the two planets are closest,
Mars will rise at nightfall and
reach its highest point in the
sky by 12:30 a.m.
That's pretty convenient to
see something that no human
being has ever seen in record-
ed history.
Mars has not come this
close to Earth in the last 5,000
years, and it may be as long as
60,000 years before it happens
again.
So, mark your. calendar at
the beginning of August to see
Mars grow progressively
brighter and brighter
throughout the month.
No one alive todaywill-ever
see this again.

You call these things tomatoes?


Bad tomatoes. Is it a secret in Florida? Where do you find a
good tomato that is not encased in leather? The only thing I
find in the stores that is edible is California tomatoes. Good
gracious. Why can't you grow a good tomato in Florida? If I took
these little grape tomatoes and threw them at passing cars, it
would dent their fender. Come on. Let's grow a good tomato.


Affordable housing. I want
to speak about two items.'
First, affordable housing.
There'is so much land waiting
to be developed east of 75,.
affordable housing would be
cheaper to be built there. And
put a buts service in there. It
may have to work at a loss,
but it can be paid for out of
other programs, money des-
ignated by the other charities.
But there's plenty of land
there to build on.
Second would be children
using skateboards in the city
downtown Venice where all
the restaurants are should be
banned. But these are chil-
dren; they have to have a
place to play. There's got to be
a place on the island for them.
If not there, how about devel-
oping something simple, not
as complicated as at the Y?
Something up by the beach
and the new park that's being
built instead of all those 250
parking spaces, put some-
thing in. They like to go off the
curbstone.

Develop something up
there. That's supposed to be a
park for the city and all the
residents and the children
could jump in the water to
cool off.
It could be very nice if done
right. But don't take them out
of Venice, forbid them to go
there or make it a crime. We
don't need that. We need to do
something for our children.
There's very little to keep
them out of trouble as it is.
Beach pigs. We love the
Venice art pigs, but we loathe
the Venice Beach pigs who
leave cigarette butts, wrap-


pers and broken stuff when
they scurry away. Take your
garbage home to your sty,
beach pigs!
Messed up. This is in regard
to your TV guide changes. You
really had a wonderful TV
guide, the best in the area; the
set-up, the type, the dolor
guide was great. And why
you've messed with it is
beyond words.
Now the new TV guide type
is slightly smaller, more diffi-
cult to read and the colors are
not as distinct. All the pro-
grams should have been left
in order instead of pulling out
sports, kids, music and so
forth. They already had their
color codes and were easy to
locate, so it's very confusing.

WWII exhibit 'Bases, Beaches and
Bond Drives' opens at History Center
Revisit life in Sarasota County during the second world war at
"Bases, Beaches and Bond Drives: Sarasota County and
WWII," an exhibit opening this weekend at the Sarasota County
History Center.
The exhibit commemorates the county's involvement in the
war effort and the lasting effects on the community. The Sarasota
Army Air Base, for example, became a civilian facility- what is
now the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. The Venice
Army Air Base became Venice Municipal Airport.
In the early 1940s Sarasota County provided facilities for
thousands of servicemen and women. It was home to air bases,
bombing ranges, a USO facility in Newtown, and an Army and
Navy Club at the Municipal Auditorium. Elsewhere, a naval
attack transport ship was built and christened the USS Sarasota
in 1944. The ship served in the Pacific and earned three battle
stars in the war.
The exhibit is comprised mostly of local artifacts loaned and
donated by residents. It showcases several facets of life in
Sarasota County during the war including bombing and
gunnery ranges, the Sarasota Army Air Base, the Venice Army
Air Base, the USS Sarasota, efforts on the home front and the
post-war era.
, "Bases, Beaches and Bond Drives" will run from Saturday,
July 30 through Friday, Dec. 30. The History Center is located at
701 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturdays. For
more information contact the Sarasota County-Call Center at

Center.

When You Sell Your Home?


Sarasota County A new report has just
been released which reveals 7 costly mistakes
that most homeowners make when selling
their home, and a 9 Step System that can
help you sell your home fast and for the most
amount of money.
This industry report shows clearly,
how the traditional ways of selling homes
have become increasingly less and less effec-
tive in today's market. The fact of the matter
is that fully three quarters of homesellers
don't get what they want for their home and
become disillusioned and worse'- financial-
ly disadvantaged when they put their home on
the market.


As this report uncovers, most home-
sellers make 7 deadly mistakes that cost
them literally thousands of dollars. The
good news is that each and every one of these
mistakes is entirely preventable.
In answer to this issup, industry
insiders have prepared a free special report
entitled "The 9 Step System to Get Your
Home Sold Fast an'd For Top Dollar".

ATTACKS from page5A


cer pushed her to the house.
Thomas came out and helped
get Bowling back into the
house.
Derr wrote Bowling came
out into the driveway a few
minutes later "and took an
aggressive stance, and yelled,
'You want a piece ofthis?"'
Turner assisted Derr in
placing Bowling under arrest
on charges of battery on a law
enforcement officer.
According to the report,
Bowling kicked Derr and
"aggressively resisted being
placed under arrest."
Bowling refused to walk to
the car, so Derr and Turner
carried her, the report said.
"She began kicking the
door and screaming," Derr
wrote.
Bowling complained her


handcuffs were too tight. Derr
and Turner tried to adjust
them. However, Bowling
refused to cooperate, accord-
ing to the report.
Turner opened the car
door. Bowling continued to
resist and had to be "dragged"
out of the vehicle to have her
handcuffs adjusted, the:
report said.
As soon as the officers
began loosening Bowling's
handcuffs, she fought the two
officers, but was quickly con-
trolled by Derr and Turner,
the report said. Bowling
reportedly continued yelling
obscenities on the way to the
jail.
Once Bowling and Scott
were transported to South
County fail in Venice, Bowling
was "uncooperative" and


while being processed by
Sarasota County Deputy
Sheriff Lee, "She (became)
belligerent and turned
around and kicked the
deputy on her right leg," the
report states.
Derr reported that it took
three deputies to restrain
Bowling and place her in a
holding cell.
Derr and Lee suffered only
minor injuries.
Scott was released
Thursday on supervised
release and is scheduled to be
arraigned on Aug. 23. Bowling
is being held on $5,000 bond,
and is, scheduled to be
arraigned on Sep. 9.

Man in the closet case exposed


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER ,


Amanwasallegedlyfoundin
a model home's closet with his
pants down last week, accord-
ing to a police report.
A report filed with theNorth
Port Police Department states a
man walked into a modelhome
on Lovette Road just at closing
time.
The woman working there
describedhim to police as being
a white male, about 5 feet, 6
inches tall, in his mid-30s, par-
tially bald with short dark hair,
nearly dressed and clean-cut,
and wearing white tennis shoes.
He started looking around
and asked some questions
about the model home. He


told the woman working
there he was looking at
homes for a friend in New
York.
The woman answered his
questions and politely
informed the man she had to
close up for the evening, the
police report said.
As she was closing the
house, she told police she.
heard the front door open
and the alarm went off.
According to the report,,
she walked through the
model home and noticed a
white car still in the side park-
ing lot. She called out several
times but got no answer.
While checking the model
home, the woman opened a
closet and found the man


inside with his pants down
fondling himself, the report
stated.
She told police that she
was shocked and didn't know
what to do, except to leave the
room. According to the
report, he smiled at her and
reached for her. Shocked, the
woman said, she quickly
moved away. :
The man came out a few
seconds later and smiled at
her as he continued to ask her
more questions about the
home, the. report said. He
then left. The woman later
filed a report with the police
department.

STORY BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER
oger Isphording, probate trust lawyer,
earned the Robert C. Scott award from the
estate planning association.


Anybody that's been here
longer than the Intracoastal
Waterway has witnessed
Venice's growing pains. Roger
O. Isphording is no, exception.
Whether he was at a growing
15,000-student University of
Florida campus, or the city of
Venice more than 44 years
ago, he made the best of
things by making big oppor-
tunities for himself in those
small places.
Isphording was awarded
the Robert C. Scott Memorial
Award at the annual conven-
tion of the Real Property.
Probate and Trust Law
Section of the Florida Bar
Association in Estero on May
27. The award, established in
1985, is not granted on an
annual basis; it' presented to
section members who exem-
plify devotion and service to
the section.
"It's the largest voluntary
section of about 7,500-8,000
attorneys," Isphording said.
"We propose legislation deal-
ing with real estate or estate
planning."'
Isphording served as chair
of the section from 1990 to
1991 as a member and chair
of many of its .committees
and has been president of the
Florida Lawyers Support
Services Inc., a Florida non-
profit corporation seeing the
probate and trust lawyers of
the state, for 23 years.
''" sphording has practiced
law inVenice for 44I ears, sr.:-
cializing in estate planning,
probate, trust law and taxa-
tion. He is presently "of coun-
sel" to the Venice/Sarasota
firm of Bechtold and
Corbridge.
Isphording graduated
from St. Petersburg High
School in 1950 and joined the
military in February of 1951.
He climbed poles as a tele-
phone lineman in Germany'
for two and a half years before
returning to Florida and
,going to college.
"When I came. here 44
years ago it wasn't an island,"
Isphording said. "There was-
n't a creek going through
here."
When Isphording first
came to Venice there wasn't a
condo to be seen.
"It was a nice looking
beach," he said.
Isphording was raised in
St..Petersburg and knew he


wanted to live on Florida's
west coast. When he got off
the train after his service, St.
Petersburg had changed so
much he decided he would go
somewhere else. After gradu-
ating from the University of
Florida he decided to move to
Venice.
"I came to the right place at
the right time," he said. "My
brother told me to try school
for a semester. I could've been
climbing telephone poles."
Isphording caught the
travel bug when he was in the
service. He also caught the
love bug while in Gainesville.
He and his wife Peggyare avid
travelers and have trekked to
areas like the Yukon and
South Africa.
"My wife and I have been
doing it for years and years,"
he said. "It'll be our 20th trip
back to South Africa. We go
out where there isn't anybody
around for 100 miles and hear
the lions roar. It's kind of a
nice place to go."'
In addition to the African
plains, the Isphordings have
also traveled to the southern-
most point on the globe,
where penguins play and ice
is prevalent.
Isphording has involved
himself with many organiza-
tions over the years. He has
been a member .of the'
Toastmasters, Noon Lions.
Elks, Masons and Shriners
lubs. He also helped start the
local YNIlCAN 42 years ago. It
started in the building across
from the Rialto.
"We needed aYMCA down
here and we pushed for it,"
lsphording said. "We'd have
our swimming lessons there
or out in the gulf."
Currently, he is the presi-
dent of the Florida Lawyers
Support Services Inc. For 25
years FLSSI has come out
with forms that are used in
probate and guardianship
and every year they're
reviewed and updated.
Isphording also is a mem-
ber of the Florida Legal
Education Association, which
holds seminars to educate the'
public about real estate plan-
ning.
"We have some of the
highest attended seminars in
Florida because it's an area
that people deal with,"
Isphording said. "We have a
lot of retired people and a lot

Laird Lile, the chair of the Real Property, Probate & Trust Law Section of The Florida Bar, pre-
sented the Section' s Robert C. Scott Memorial Award to Roger Isphording on May 28, 2005.
The award was presented to Roger in recognition of his devotion and continued service to the
Section and its membership. Roger chaired the Section from 1990-1991, and both he and his

of real estate transactions in
Florida."
FLEA usually has two sem-
inars a vear, one in the fall and
one in the spring.
"They're the 'ones used
throughout Florida now,",
Isphording said. "The probate
judges like them because as
long as our logo is there all

they have to do is read what is
added to it. You're probably
aware' that lawyers,, some-
times, get a bit verbose."
According to the Florida
Bar Association, The' Robert
C. Scott Nlemorial Award was
established in 1985 by the
Real Property, Probate and
Trust Law Section of the
Florida Bar to memorialize
the memory and many extra-
ordinary accomplishments of
Robert Claude Scott.
"1 got on the executive
counsel'.20 years ago,"
Isphording said. "We meet
about five times a year.
The group recognizes the
achievements of it's mem-

only 'awarded' when deemed
necessary.
The award symbolizes the


PHOTOS COURTESY OF PEGGI ISPHORDING
During the Khlebnikov trip, the Isphordings flew on a Russian helicopter to a snow-free peak in
Antarctica. When they landed, the ship's staff was waiting for them with champagne. It doesn't
get much better than that.

Canada. The sign is actually in the Yukon Territory. The

devotion of Scott because
even thoughhe had complet-
ed his duties as chair in 1973,,
Scott continued working on
behalf of the action and the
lawyers of Florida until his
death. He was faithful 'in his
attendance at section meet-
ings and participated in the
section programs and he
never overlooked the oppor-
tunity to advance the objec-


tives of the section.
Isphording is just as devot-
ed to his practice. Luckily his
peers noticed and honored
.himwith anawardonlymade
available to those who've
shown their dedication. Is-
phording is the only recipient
ever to still be alive and re-
ceive the award, so.his excel-
lence among his co-workers
has truly been immortalized.


The Isphordings were cruising on the Kapitan Khlebnikov, a
Russian icebreaker, in the Weddell Sea. The ship had plowed
its way into the ice and passengers walked out to a penguin
rookery. The little brown one is quite young and was waiting
for its mother to return to the ice with his lunch.

Sarasota Coalition on Substance Abuse


awarded Selby Foundation grant


Dollars will go directly toward increasing
the awareness of the harmful effects of
substance abuse here in Sarasota County.


STAFF REPORT


The Sarasota Coalition on
Substance Abuse was recently
selected to receive a $10,000
grant on behalf of the William
G. Selby and Marie Selby
Foundation, to be used to
further the mission of pro-
moting substance abuse free
environments here in Sara-
sota County.
The grant came as a result
of the Selby Scholar Search,
which included applications
from 10 states and a pool of
more than 3,000 potential
recipients. Former Selby
Scholar and Coalition Board
Member Sherri Reynolds was
chosen and had the opportu-
nity to name the organization
that she would provide the
grant to.
"We are absolutely ecstatic
that Ms. Reynolds choose our
coalition, which further
demonstrates her commit-
ment to this community and

Safe & Drug Free School's
Program for the Sarasota
County Public Schools. "It is
important that we work
together as a community to
solve the issues of drug
abuse in not only our youth,
but our elderly population,
as well."

By Vicki Connell, 8
M.A., CCC-A R
Certified Audiologist
Q. I recently purchased
two hearing aids that fit
inside the ears. When I
didn't wear hearing aids,
everything sounded too
soft. Now when I am using
my hearing aids,
everything sounds too loud.
What should I do?
A. One of the biggest shocks
people experience -when
wearing hearing aids is how
loud everyday sounds now
seem. This is because.people
with sensorineural hearing
loss often suffer from
recruitment. Recruitment is
the perception that sounds
increase in volume faster
than they really do. It is the
result of a reduced dynamic
range of-hearing which is
that area between the softest
sound you can hear and the,
loudest sound you can stand.
People with normal hearing
have a dynamic range of 100
- 120 ,dB. -People with
hearing loss have a restricted
dynamic range which can be
as small as 20dB. A properly
programmed hearing aid will
adequately amplify the soft
sounds while limiting the
amount of amplification
given to louder sounds. Your
hearing aids may need to be
reprogrammed to
accommodate your dynamic,
range more precisely. The
best way to insure this
measure is done correctly is
with the use qf REM or Real
Ear Measurement. Before
you give up on your hearing
aids, call the Audiologists
at Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at
492-4327 to learn more
about REM and to find out if
your hearing aids are
properly programmed for
your 'dynamic range of
hearing.

Age discrimination hard to prove


JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
The company I worked for
recently laid off about 10 of its
sales staff, including me, due to
budget cuts. But after talking
with one of my former fellow
workers we both realized that
everyone they fired was older
than age 55, while the younger
sales staff who are paid less
- kept their jobs. How can I find
out if I have an age discrimina-
tion case here, and where can I
turn for help? Laid-off Larry
Dear Larry,
To learn more about age
discrimination in the work-
place and what your options
are, contact the Equal
Employment Opportunity
Commission (EEOC). They
are the federal agency _
responsible for enforcing
anti-discrimination laws.
Here's what you should know.
Age discrimination
Most people, when they


think of discrimination, they
think of race or gender. But, if
you're at least 40 years old,
and have been harmed by a
decision affecting your
employment, you may have
suffered age discrimination;
The Age Discrimination in
Employment Act (ADEA) is a
federal law that protects
workers from employment
discrimination based on age.
Here are some examples of
age discrimination:
You didn't get hired
because the employer want-
ed a younger-looking person
to do the job.
*You received a poor job
evaluation because you
weren't flexible in taking on
new projects.
You were fired because
your boss wanted to keep
younger workers who are
paid less.
You were turned down
for a promotion, which went
to someone younger hired
from outside the company,
because the boss says the
company needs new blood.
When company layoffs
are announced, most of the
persons laid off were older,
while younger workers with
less seniority and less on-.
the-job experience were kept
on.
ADEA
The ADEA protects work-
ers and job applicants who


are 40 years of age or older
from employment discrimi-
nation based on age. This
applies to all private employ-
ers that have 20 or more
employees, including federal,
state and local governments.
If your workplace has fewer
than 20 employees, you may
still be protected under your
state age discrimination laws.
To find out your state law
requirements, contact your
state labor department or
your state fair employment
office.
Another protection for
older workers is the federal
Older Workers Benefit
Protection Act. Under this
law, an employer cannot
.reduce health or life insur-
ance benefits for older
employees, nor can it stop
their pensions from accruing
if they work past their nor-
mal retirerfient age. It also
discourages businesses from
targeting older workers when
cutting staff and prohibits
employers fr6m forcing
employees to.take early
retirement.
Filing a charge
If you think you are a vic-
tim of employment age dis-
crimination, your first step is
to file a charge with the:
EEOC within 180 days from
the date of the alleged viola-

ular name 90 years ago, be-
cause there are three other
Virginias in my hall at
HarborChase.
I was fascinated by the
name Tory, my high school
volunteer typist. I asked her
where it came from. She told
me she was named after her
aunt, Victoria, and that Tory is
a nickname..
I have the theory that
many things go in cycles. I
rather think they will return to
those ordinary but beautiful
names.
I think there is a period in
which a popular name is
given to many babies. For
instance, at one time many
girls were named Debbie,
perhaps at the peak of Debbie
Reynolds' popularity.


At one time, when my son
was planning a new kitchen,
the designer told him which
color was popular that year.
(White was always No. 2.)
Thereby, a kitchen could be
dated by the color used on its
cabinets and counters. unless
one used white.
Don't you find that high-
fashion clothes are dated by
their color? This year pink and
kiwi are at the height of fash-
ion.
Why is "Josh" so popular
for boys? I dunno. My friend
Fran wondered how Adam
and Eve got their names.
Some unusual names I
have heard recently are: River,
Filena, Briana.' The popular
names this year seem to be:
Brandon, Jason, Kayla and
Brittany.
Do some of them come

What does it mean to be a member of the

Women's Resource Center of Sarasota County?


BY LESLIE YARD
GUEST WRITER

Through volunteer sup-
port and membership, the
Women's Resource Center of
Sarasota County has been
bringing hope and opportu-
nity to Women throughout
Sarasota County (and now
south into Charlotte County)
for 26 years. When you pay to
attend a program, seminar,
yoga class or special event,
this money contributes to the
individual program cost but
does not include your mem-
bership fee nor does it main-
tain an ongoing membership
base that is so crucial to the
continued success of the
Women's Resource Center of
Sarasota County.
So, what does it mean to be
a member of the Women's
Resource Center of Sarasota
County?
It means you support the
mission of the Women's
Resource Center of "women
helping women to achieve
financial and emotional inde-
pendence, through network-
ing, training, education and
support." It means you sup-
port volunteers who provide
peer counseling, administra-
tive help, special events sup-
port and teach ALL WRCSC
programs. (Volunteers dem-
onstrate their commitment
and support of the WRCSC
mission by becoming a mem-
ber themselves.)
As a not-for-profit organi-
zation, the Women's Resource
Center relies heavily on dona-


tions, membership dues and
grants to fund services and
programs in Sarasota, Venice,
Englewood, North Port and
Cape Haze. Many times fees
are waived for clients who are
in financial need. Your mem-
bership makes it possible for
life management programs
such as Challenge, Peer
Counseling and Employment
Success to be available to all
women in need, by helping to
defray the cost. A strong
membership base offsets in-
creasing expenses and, most
important, demonstrates
that many in thepcommunity


wish the WRCSC's services to
continue.
You are a valued member
of the Women's Resource
Center when you pay an an-
nual membership fee of $35
or more; An annual member-
ship entitles you to receive:
A copy of the bi-monthly
Calendar of Events
Notice of two membership
meetings per year
Advance notice of special
events
Preferred membership
rates for programs
When the WRCSC began
its new fiscal year on July 1,


nonmember fees for some
programs were raised from $5
to $8. Although both these
fees are quite reasonable, the
increase was needed to offset
increased expenses for site
operations such as utilities,
maintenance and, are de-
signed to encourage people
to invest in the mission of the
WRCSC.
When you become a mem-
ber of the Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County,
you help us continue to touch
the lives of more than 11,000
women in Sarasota County
and beyond.

from movies or are they just a
combination of names? I
dunno.
We have six girls from
Ukraine working where I live.
Their names are as beautiful
as their faces, and skin: Na-
taliya, Nadiya, Olga, Svetlana,
Marina and Ljutov.
There is a kind of funny


story behind our naming our
three children, James, Jean
and John.
James, named for my
father, being our first, re-
ceived many baby gifts, sever-
al with the letter "J," so it
seemed natural to use the let-
ter "J" again for our other chil-
dren. Besides, we loved the


name Jean for our baby
daughter.
We had several Johns in the
family dating back many cen-
turies. So, of course, the third
child was John. (Doesn't every
house need a john?) In-
teresting to me, that of three
grandchildren, one is named
Jeanette and one is Julia,


keeping the tradition that we
started.
When we were thinking of
names for our children, it
seemed to us that they should
be appropriate for childhood,
adolescence and in adult life.
A friend of mine said that
in choosing her children's
names, they wanted to be


sure that the names wouldn't
cause them to be teased. They
also wanted names that were
easy to spell.

Down Under and Outback in Australia


BY PAT RITNER
GUEST WRITER

"You haven't been Down
Under until you have been
Outback."
That is what "they" say in
Australia.
The vast sunbaked interior
of the Northern Territory does
indeed provide a very special
and unique experience not
duplicated anywhere else.
Ayres Rock or Uluru (oo-la-
rue) is a 3-hour flight from
Cairns, a small port city along
the coast of Queensland and
an equal distance from
Sydney. The trip is like going
from Miami to Kansas except
that when you arrive you feel
as though you have landed on'
another planet.
In the interior, the earth is
sunburned; the vegetation is
sparse and unfamiliar. We
were told that the desert oaks
have no leaves until they are
about 40 years old pand that
the blue malle, a variety of
eucalyptus, has its trunk
below the surface of the
ground.
Our visit began at the Ul-
uru-Kata Kjuta National Park,
which the Australian govern-
ment returned to the Anangu,
the Aboriginal owners, in
1985. As we approached the
majestic Uluru, I was awe
struck. I had always heard it
referred to as "that big rock in
the Outback." "Big" is not an
'accurate description. Uluru is
a colossal sandstone mono-
lith that rises 1,000 feet from.
the desert and is nearly 6
miles around its perimeter.
The part seen above ground
weighs about, 1 billion
pounds, and The part under-
ground is seven times as large'.
It isone. of the most visited
symbols of Australia and, at
600 million years of age, is
certainly the oldest.
We stopped at an Ab-
original waterhole at the rock
to view cave paintings,. The
paintings were ancient com-
munity bulletin boards or
'libraries with the paintings
telling stories and providing
information to travelers.
There are often layers of
paintings on the same sur-
face. Early tour guides splash-
ed water on the cave paint-
ings to bring out the color,
destroying many paintings in
the process. I felt privileged to
view such a religious and cul-
turally sensitive site.
From a half mile away you'
can see vertical markings on
the face of Uluru. The mark-
ings are both evidence of ero-
sion and also of hikers who
have worn a ridge into the
face. Climbing is discouraged
because the rock is a sacred
site of the Aboriginal, people,'
but some hikers persist., It is
felt that hiking will soon be
eliminated entirely. ,

ON THE ROAD AGAIN TOURS I


With great anticipation we
awaited our first site of the
setting sun at this sacred
place. When the weather is
just right, the rock changes
colors, first becoming bright
red and then changing to pur-
ple.
In the Outback the land is
so vast and the people so few.
It is easy to get lulled into
thinking you are the only out-
sider to have ever seen the
Outback and that rock. But,
there are quite a few others
waiting to take sunset pic-
tures. Each night as many as
120 buses gather in the park-
ing lot a respectful distance
away and some 2,000-4,000
tourists look on in awe as the
rock changes color at sunset.
Each bus has a"tailgate party"
with mimosas, champagne
and munchies. As the tourists
sip their drinks, the sound of
clicking cameras capturing
the changing colors can be
heard.
Our home for that night
was the Desert Gardens Hotel,
which is part of theAyres Rock
Resort Complex. Here there
are accommodations at every
comfort level from rustic
Campgrounds to the five-star
Sails in the Desert hotel. The
facilities are linked with a
continuously operating, shut-
tie bus. Guests can visit the
entire complex, including the
visitors center, the observato-
ry, several restaurants and a
small shopping area. Located
10 miles from the monolith,
the resort's placement was
selected out of respect for the
natural beauty of the mono-
lith's site.
I hoped to attend the
renowned Sounds of Silence
dinner served by candlelight
under the desert stars that
first night. By dinnertime,
however, we decide we were
much too tired to even chew.
We skipped dinner entirely.
My dreams that night were of
Uluru and of the sights we
would see the next day.
Kata-Kjuta, formally
known as The Olgas also is
located in the Ulura-Kata
Kjuta National Park. If Ulura
reminds one of a large water-
melon, then Kata-Kjuta will
make you think of a bunch of
grapes.on steroids. We were
excited to be able to hike in
the ravines at the base of the
Kata-Kjuta. The climb is not
steep 'at this point, but the
rough rocks do require good
hiking shoes.
Fortunately the restrooms
there were not so rough. The
public restrooms at The Olgas
were built to be-environmen-
tally sound. Toilets in the
bush are, called a "long drop."
This block of six toilets cost a
million dollars to build. I
guess that makes it a top-
Snotch long drop.
Aboriginals have lived in
Australia for at least 40,000
years. Because of their reli-
gious beliefs and the harsh
nature of the environment it
has been very important for
them to protect their precious
natural resources.

Aboriginal performers entertain tourists at the Aboriginal
Cultural Center.


We learned that the Ab-
original people have always
done their own burning off of
the scrub to rejuvenate plant
growth. Willi Willis are ani-
mals that run around and
suckup ash after a fire. Willi
Willis, like koalas and kanga-
roos, are animals found on no
other continent but Australia.
When cattlemen of Euro-
pean, ancestry came to the
Outback from other areas of
Australia, their cattle polluted
the precious streams, leading
to racial strife. The Abor-
iginals retaliated by spearing
the Europeans' cattle. In turn,
the cattlemen shot the Abor-
iginals.
Even today, there are Ab-
original people who are hesi-
tant to associate too freely
with those 'outside their cul-
ture.
Our driver/guide, Jim, told
us that Aboriginallaw dictates
that men possess some
knowledge and other knowl-
edge is for women only. The
Aboriginal people hesitate to
share additional information
'with anthropologists because
information was printed in
the past that should not have
been revealed. Local guides
shared some dreamtime sto-
ries ,such as a python story,
but the guides cautioned that
many previously told Ab-
original stories-are being
recanted.
When the railroad was
built to the.Outback, camels
were used as pack animals:


There are now thousands of
camels roaming the area in
herds up to 100. Perhaps the
best way to catch a glimpse of
the herds is by plane or hot air
balloons.
There were tiny flies every-
where. Many tourists wore
nets and some of the workers
had corks attached to their
hats to swat the flies. The little
pests did not bite, but insisted
on inspecting my facial fea-
'tures. Our guide told us that
the traditional Aussie greet-
ing, "G'day," came into being
because the flies will have a
greater chance of landing in
your niouth if you say, "Good
morning, how are you?" The
cork-trimmed hats are for
sale in tourist shops all over
Australia.
Leaving Kata Kjuta we
motored to Alice Springs,
which is roughly at the center
of Australia and more -than

Relax in the Ozarks with expert fishermen as your guides


BYANDREA LORENZ
GUEST WRITER

The sunburned noses and
bikini tan lines make the truth
that much clearer. Everybody
at the Lake of the Ozarks has a
boat. Except you.
'"'..' IDon't sulk on the shore.
There are plenty of options
for getting the ea; l, ssionto,;
.he lake for sightseeing, danc-
ing, eating and drinking, or
fishing. Hey. even if you own a
boat, letting someone else do
all the work might make your
vacation seem even more like,
well, a vacation.
About a dozen fishing
fiide services and cruise
companies use the Lake of
the Ozarks as a base, and
although they won't take you
to Party Cove, they promise a
no-hassle, relaxing excursion.
You won't even have to bait
the hook. Unless you want to.
Capt. Omer Clark didn't
always have a tide before his
name. For a long time he was
just another corporate cog at
Emerson Electric in St. Louis.
His wife, Jacquie. was an
assistant vice president at
Citicorp. Each morning, she
put on a suit and heels and
commuted 45 minutes in St.
Louis traffic.
The Clarks were ready to
try a less stressful lifestyle.
After surveying resorts at the
lake to make sure they would
send corporate clients their
way, the couple wrote up a
business plan, applied for a
loan and moved to the lake.
It wasn't completely
impromptu. The couple had
been boating for fun at the
Ozarks for about 30 years. But
neither can remember when
the idea of making a living
with a cruise company came
p. .'
Omer Clark went-through


the process to attain a cap-
tain's license, and in 1994 the
Clarks bought a 50-passenger
boat and started their charter
cruise company, called Tropic
Island Cruises. "They called
us corporate dropouts in the
papers when we first moved
here," Omer Clark said, sitting
on board the Tropic Island
yacht. "It wasn't like a lifelong
dream. We just decided to do
it."
Five years later the couple
upgraded to a $1 million boat
that can hold 150 people. The
75-foot boat has two levels
and three outside decks.
As it turns out, Omer Clark
said, owning Tropic Island-
Cruises is more profitable
than their jobs back in St.
Louis. They also get to spend
more time together.
"Our biggest problem,"
Jacquie Clark said, "with us
both having sales back-
grounds, is when we are in the
same conversation. We really,
really enjoy making people
feel special."
For about $15, five compa-
nies offer scenic cruises
around the lake. The time
ranges from one hour to two
hours, mostly in the after-
noon.
Six afternoons a week
Tropic Island's scenic cruise
departs from the Lodge of the
Four Seasons marina. On
most evenings in the sum-
mer, the Clarks don formal
captain attire and cater for
private groups. .'
Other lake companies
such as Celebration Cruises
offer dinner and lunch cruis-
es.
Casino Pier, which oper-
ates the Commander and
Captain Larry Don boats,
runs dance cruises with a disc
jockey or live bands on
Saturday nights, as well as


daily sightseeing cruises.
Mostly, what "scenes" they
offer are views of the enor-
mous lake houses on the
shore. A visitor might even
learn something about the
lake.
Aboard a Tropic Island
cruise the other day, naviga-
tor Jerry Boak cut into the
Music to share stories about
lake houses:and condos on
the shore. Later he pointed
out a peninsula used as a cor-
porate retreat by Anheuser-
Busch. Boak almost sounded
like a real estate agent as he
listed the amenities for multi-
million-dollar ,lake houses on
the market.
But the experience isn't
about learning history or real
estate. It's about relaxation.
Throughout the boat, Bob-
by McFerrin could be heard
singing "Don't Worry, Be
Happy.' More songs from the,
100-CD collection, such as
"Lean on Me" and "Summer
Breeze," kept the mood light,
fun and tropical.
Boak started working for
the Clarks six years ago when
he ran into the couple at an
area W.Val-llart. Jacquie Clark
recognized him from St. Louis
and noticed his T-shirt. It said,


SMarina Restaurant & TAVERN


!I t .
.. .


"Retired and spending my
children's inheritance."
Boak was getting a little
bored and was happy to
accept the Clarks' offer to
come work on the boat. His
wife, Deborah, works on
Tropic island; too. -
That is, Omer Clark says, "if
you can call thiswork."
Ever year the Missouri
Dairy Products Association
holds an informal bass fishing
tournament on the lake.
Instead of renting boats and
equipment, the group hires a
guide service about a
dozen boats with two partici-
pants and a guide in each.
"With guides all you got to
do is throw your butt in the
boat," said the event's orga-
nizer, Bob Apple of Ice Cream
Specialties. "They have all the
gear; they have all the hot
spots. You just pay the bill and
go fishing."
Apple's group lires Chip
Weeg's company, Hook-Em
Guide Service, one of the larg-
er fishing operations on the
lake. Some guides own a sin-
gle boat and take clients out
only 10 times a year or so.
Others are fishermen who
make a living by guiding with
one boat.

Weeg relies on business-
men and women at conven-
tions for his clientele.
Sometimes he guides newly-
weds, kids and even celebri-
ties. Once he guided action
star Steven Seagal and anoth-
er time Richard Moll, who
played Bull dte bailiff in the
1980s TV show "Night Court."
These are the people who
hire fishing guides --"folks '
with more money than they
have time, said Jeff Williams,
owner of Trophy Catfishing, a
guide service out of Warsaw,
Mo., on the lake's western tip.
It does cost a bit of cash to:
hire a guide'- a minimum of
-more than $100 for three to
four hours of fishing.
Fishing boats are small;
most can accommodate only
two or three people in addi-


tion to the guide. But about
eight companies find enough
customers to operate at the
lake.
Some of his clients have
never been fishing before,
Williams said, but they think
it would be fun to try. Others
are buddies from way back
who want to catch up while
relaxing on the lake'without
worrying about details.
L.D. Wimbs, who operates
a guide service from Osage
Beach, said one of his clients
is an 82-year-old woman who
returns each year for a half-
day on the lake.
Whatever the reason,
when the excursion gets go-
ing, the focus is the same: to
find the fish.

RELAX from last Green Sheet


When he is not guiding
people around Truman Lake
or the Lake of the Ozarks,
Williams uses special equip-
ment and a Global Po-
sitioning System to find cat-
fish and map their locations.
"You don't just buy a boat
and start guiding," he -said.
"You have to understand the
habits of the fish."
Hiring a guide means hav-
ing an expert on hand who
knows the time, the place and
the bait to catch a fish. And if
you have only a few hours, a
guide makes the most of your
vacation time.
Williams sets up the rods,
baits the hooks and casts the
line. The customer wvais for a
bite, then reels in the fish. If
the catfish weighs more than
8 pounds, Williams will throw
it back. But if it is an accept-
able size, he'll clean the fish--
if the client wants to keep it.
SSo all the person does is
reel in the fish? But what if
you like to bait the hook? Are
fishing guides only for the
squeamish?
No, said Williams. He'll do
whatever the customer wants
him to "This is a low pres-
sure deal."
In a floating shack at the
Tan-Tar-A Resort marina,
Wimbs waited one day
recently for potential fishing
clients. For three years Wimbs
hosted a TV show called "East
Texas Angler." Now he spe-
cializes in fishing trips for
kids.
He'll take up to four chil-
dren in a boat, but not out of
the harbor if only kids are
aboard.
Without parents around,
he said, young people relax
and pay attention to detailed
instructions.
The young anglers learn
how to read a depth finder
and the basics about bait and
the lake's eco-system, so
when they do catch a fish.
they have some context to
share with their parents.
Weeg offers a daily trip at
10 a.m. for kids. "When you
have some kid from New York
catch his first bass," he said.
"that's kind of exciting."
He has good-natured com-
petitions on the kids' trips,


such as offering a candy bar
to the first one to catch a fish.
When you spend every day
at the lake working with vaca-
tioners, there are bound to be
stories. The funniest thing to
happen while guiding?
"People fall in every once in
a while," W\eeg said. "You have
people hung over from. the
night before.... I've seen a lot of
business deals made on the
lake. A (married) man who
'brings his girlfriend." But Weeg
won't talk. "What happens at
the lake, stays at the lake."
Good fishing guides know
the waters theyN work in. They
should be able to tell you
what time of day is best for a
particular kind of fish, as well
as the location and depth to
find that fish. And even if the
fish aren't biting, at least you
had a day on the lake.
"As the saying goes," Weeg
said, "a bad day of fishing is
better than a good day of
work."

ONE LAST WORD


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

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
or evacuated friends --and smile?
t 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.


relocation benefits are
required if the city's average
vacancy rate exceeds 7 percent
in the previous year.
"The double-edged sword is
that on one hand you may be
losing very low income rental
units (through conversion) but
at the same time it is about
the only opportunity you have


for first-time home buyers,"
Clementson said. "What we've
been struggling with is: 'Is
there a perfect balance of
rental units to ownership units
to have in a city, and if so, how
do you achieve this?'"
Condo conversions deplete
rental stock in some cities
David Orgel, a renter in an
apartment complex in Arling-
ton, Va., that is converting to
condominium units, said he is
considering whether to
purchase the unit that he has
rented for the past four years.
Initially, he said, the news of
the conversion was unsettling.
"I thought, 'I'm going to
have to move or make some
major change. When I heard
that they were goingto be
offering discounts to the
current residents, that made it
go down a lot easier. On paper
it seems like a good deal
because of the way the market
is," Orgel said.
He noted that he is probably

the kids to carry around.

in the minority among
residents who are able or
willing to purchase a condo
unit. "Most people feel they
can't afford to buy, for whatev-
er reason," he said. "Retirees,
they are the most unhappy
ones -- the ones who have the
saddest stories to tell."
Orgel estimated that his
monthly payments will range
from about $1,300 to $1,400 if
he decides to purchase the
unit, compared with his
current monthly rent of $940.
Other apartment buildings
in the region are converting to
condos, too, and Orgel said he
views this phenomenon as
part of a gentrification in the
area.
"I have worse than mixed
feelings about that. There has
to be rental housing. I don't
know what's going to happen.
There are people who can't
afford to buy the ante
continues to go up," he said.
Tameka Evans, a student


who lives at the same apart-
ment complex, said she will be
moving from the area soon,
though she does worry about
the growing number of condo
conversion projects. "It didn't
really bother me until I heard
a lot of communities in this
area are being turned into
condos."
A former resident of the
apartment complex, Gem
Daus, said, "I'm disappointed
by the (conversion project).
That neighborhood is very
diverse and that was one of
the attractions when I lived
there."
Orgel said public agencies
should step in to help regulate
the conversion of rental units
to for-sale units. "State and
local governments have to get
more involved particularly
local governments and say,
'Look, you have to have a
certain amount of rental

housing.'"
