SMH cuts 90 jobs

The public hospital is reducing administrative
positions as part of an attempt to make up a $20
million deficit.


BY JJ ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital announced Tuesday it
will eliminate 90.6 jobs in
order to help reduce a $19.8
million operating budget def-
icit.
The announcement comes
just three days before the
area's only public hospital
closes on a land deal to create
a 66-acre medical campus in
Venice at the intersecIon of
Laurel and Pinebrook roads.
SMH President and'CEO
Gwen MacKenzie empha-
sized that none of these is a
patient care position and
nearly all are some type of
management. Of the cuts, 60
jobs are currently filled and
another 30.6 are vacant.
The operating deficit and
job cuts will not affect the
land deal in Venice, Mac-
Kenzie said. SMH is expected
to close on the property Fri-
day for about $25 million.
"This is about manage-
ment and administrative
overhead," MacKenzie said.
"This is not about growth and
managed care.
"One of the reasons we
need to do this is to adjust our
management in accordance
to the patient volumes ...
We're doing this to become
financially healthy."

$4.6 million in salary and

positions. Another $2 million
will be saved in medical sup-
ply cuts, about $1 million
saved in consulting/service
fees and the remaining deficit
made up by increasing pa-
tient volumes.
The public hospital is tar-

of the areas in Sarasota
County the hospital is looking
to expand into, MacKenzie
said.
Expansion criticism
Venice Mayor Dean Cala-
maras has been the most vo-
cal opponent of SMH ex-
panding within city limits.
Calamaras believes the public
hospital is swooping in to
grab the profitable patient
services already offered by
Venice Regional Medical Cen-
ter rather than provide ser-
vices that are lacking, such as
maternity and psychiatric
wards.
In the mayor's opinion, all
SMH's expansion into Venice
will do is hurt the local 312-

itself out of its own operating
:deficits. The Venice hospital

From 1967 to 1981, Walker

bright shirts are a dead give-

Waterfront

rezoning

put on

hold

City attorney and city
manager disagree on
how that will affect the
debate on Mike Miller's
proposed zoning
district.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTAI EDITOR '

The air was a bit chilly at
the Venice Planning Commis-
sion Tuesday during an
exchange between City At-
torney Bob Anderson and
Planning and Zoning Director
Tom Slaughter.
Once the raised eyebrows
were lowered, city staff had
made it clear that Mike Mil-
ler's rezoning request for his
3.5 acres on Venice island
would remain on hold until
the new zoning district the
private developer proposes is
adopted or rejected by the
city.
Anderson criticized a
memo Slaughter distributed
at the meeting that advised
both planning commission
and city council members
they are allowed to openly
discuss the proposed zoning
district called Waterfront
Business District.
While that may be techni-
cally true, the city attorney is
worried state laws could be
violated because Miller, the
owner of Waterford Com-
panies, has already applied
for this type -of zoning. All
rezoning requests are quasi-
judicial, meaning conversa-
tions between elected officials
and the public outside of.
public meetings are prohibit-
ed, according to Anderson.
"So we can talk about this
because it (the rezone appli-
cation) is sitting on your
desk?" Anderson asked
Slaughter.
Anderson went on to add
that the city attorney's office
should have reviewed the
memo before being issued
and reiterated that the pro-
posed new zoning district
type and Miller's proposal to
establish one are "interwo-
ven." The city attorney started
to say something more, but
stopped, sucked in a deep
breath and; sat back in his
chair.

VHS Link Crew welcomes incoming students


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


Venice High School held its
Link Crew freshman and
new-student orientation on
Monday.
As a former VHS student
myself, I had the privilege of
being on Link Crew in my
senior year. It was a huge part
of my final year at VHS and
many of my fond memories
stem from the program. I'm
happyto saythat Link Crew has
greatly improved even in the
few years since I graduated.
This year nearly 600 fresh-
man will be joining the VHS
student body and Link Crew
is a way to make sure each of
them gets a proper welcome.
Link Crew is a high school
transition program that helps
incoming students feel more
welcome and gives them a
chance to meet upperclass-
men who can lead them
along the way.
"We want to themto have a
successful ninth-grade year
and high school experience,"
Lashawn Houston, new VHS
assistant principal, said.
This orientation is headed
up by Link Crew leaders, who
are all junior and senior high
school students who volun-
teer their time to help the new
students. For me, the benefits
of the program were well
worth the hours spent.
The new version of the ori-
entation begins with a pep
rally-type assembly that ener-
getically welcomes everyone


at once. Since my more calm
experience on Link Crew, new
and more exciting aspects
have been added.
"Gotta get them fired up,"
Houston said of the wild
assembly.
Getting to know you
The orientation assembly
includes music, games, danc-
ing, quick rule overviews and
the introduction of a select
few faculty members, such as
the principal and the assis-
tant principals.
One game that students
respond well to is balloon
pop. This requires students to
hold a balloon between two
Sof them and squeeze until it
pops under the pressure.
Some students forgot about
the squeezing and just ran full
force at each other to pop the
stubborn balloons. This game
is a way to get students to feel
closer to one another.
After the assembly, pairs of
SLink Crew leaders take their
assigned group of students on
a tour of the school and then
convene in a secluded class-
room of their own to answer
questions and play whatever
"getting-to-know-you" games
the leaders choose. In my
own experience the new stu-
dents had lots of questions.
New students want to
know who the best teachers
are who to stay clear of; what
the best clubs and activities
are; and how the basic chain
of command in high school
works. Link Crew leaders do

their best to answer the ques-
tions as honestly as they can.
The relationships between
the Link Crew leaders and
their new students don't end
after orientation day.Leaders


make sure to get contact
information for their group,
members and check in on
them on a regular basis.
In my senior year I saw my
Link Crew group often in the
hallways, called them on the
phone to check in and even


became good friends with a
few of them.
A big perk of this program
for new students is just hav-
ing a friendly face to see on a
new and strange campus.
Students also get the benefit
of the upperclassmen's expe-


rience and the knowledge
that somebody is there ft
help.
Link Crew leaders get the
chance to, develop new
friends and step out of their
box to invite new people into
their existing group of friends

Which of These Costly Mistakes

Will You Make

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.
a Tniptvianttaforttyrofl


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 issue, industry
insiders have prepared a free special report
entitled "The 9 Step System to Get Your
Home Sold Fast and For Top Dollar".

Community activist dies


STAFF REPORT


Peter Macdonald of Venice
died Aug. 1 in Humarock,
Mass., after a lengthy illness.
He had been very active
in Venice affairs for several
years, working with Maxine
Barritt on the petition for a
passive-use park at the Island
Wastewater Treatment Plant
site. He was a member of the
Venice Taxpayers League and
a founding member of the:
Venice Neighborhoods Coa-
lition, whose mission state-
ment he drafted: The Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition is
dedicated to protecting
neighborhood interests and
fostering John Nolen's vision
that Venice be always a spec-
ial place where the, right of
the people to enjoy life tran-


scends special interests.
He was the co-chair, with
Joe McKee, of the VNC's
Building Height and Density

North Port




expected to




approve Village'C'


Second reading
set for Aug. 8 for
Thomas Ranch.

BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

On Aug. 8, the North Port
City Commission will vote on
the preliminary plans, site
analysis and Village District
Pattern Planning for Thomas
Ranch's Village "C."
The city created the Village
Land Use classification to
promote a pattern of develop-
ment to overcome problems
associated with urban sprawl,
according to the written rec-
ommendation of North Port
City Planner Sam Jones..
According to the pattern
book, the village will be an
interconnected system of
four neighborhoods, with
each home having a street
and waterway view.
The village plans to sup-
port a maximum of 1,999
residential units, and will be
built in phases.
, The plan is centered
around a series of waterways,
or "blueways," which works
as linear open-space tracts,
and will funnel into a central
lake that surrounds the village
mixed-use core.


In the'hoods
Neighborhoods one, two
and three will closely resem-
ble a conventional single-
family community, with five
dwelling units per acre.
Neighborhood center one is
designed as a residential wet-
land area and will be a natural
habitat native to the area. The
neighborhood center will
include a pedestrian board-
walk with viewing platforms.
Neighborhood center two
will work as a passive recre-
ational area for the village.
Neighborhood center three
will be an active recreational
area, and will serve as the trail-
head for the village pathway
network.
Neighborhood four is de-
signed to project a more
urbanized residential feel
with 10 residential units per
acre. In addition, a neighbor-
hood commercial office will
be part of neighborhood
four.
Neighborhood center four
will emerge as a community-
gathering place that includes
recreation, civic, commercial
and office uses. The neigh-
borhood center will have a
swimming pool, tennis courts
and pedestrian trails.
Some wildlife
According to Urban Re-


source Gfoup, a division of
Kimley Horn Associates of
Sarasota, Village "C" is one of
eight villages that make up the
West Villages, which is about
8,000 acres.
The northern half of the
site consists mostly of im-
proved pasture and a borrow
pit operation with some dis-
turbed wetlands. The south-
ern half consists of improved
pasture and a citrus grove
with several irrigation and
treatment ponds and con-
necting drainage ditches.
An environmental study
done by the Biological Re-
search Associates of Sarasota
shows 85 percent of the pro-
ject area in an improved or
agricultural use.
The area's altered condi-
tion makes the habitat un-
suitable for many state and
federally protected wildlife
species.
However, a wildlife census
taken has identified the fol-
lowing occupying parts of the
project area: gopher tortoises;
eastern indigo snake; wading
birds such as the snowy egret,
little blue heron and tricol-
ored heron; and the Florida
sandhill crane.

Thaxton appointed to impact fee panel


The group's principal task will be
to analyze whether impact fees
should be a matter of local or state control.


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton has been
appointed to a statewide
panel to review the use of
impact fees across Florida.
Thaxton, who was appoint-
ed by State Senate President
Tom Lee, R.-Brandon, is one
of two county commissioners
who will serve on the 15-
member Florida Impact Fee
Review Task Force. The group
will review the use of impact
fees by local governments to
finance infrastructure im-
proyements needed to ac-
commodate growth.
The task force includes 12
voting members, with the


Senate president and Speaker
of the House Allan Bense, R.-
Panama City, each naming
five, and Gov..
Jeb Bush se-
lecting two.
Bush named
John Delaney, i .. ;
president. of
the University
of North Flor- I' .
ida and .for-
mer mayor of
Jacksonville, Thaxton
as task force
chair. There also are three
non-voting task force mem-
bers.
"My appointment affirms
the Senate president's com-
mitment to having a truly di-,


verse representation of inter-
ests at the table and actively
involved in the discussion and
recommendations," Thaxton
said. "I am honored to have
been selected and will strive
to balance the needs of new
development and broader
community interests."
The task force was created
as part of revisions to Florida's
growth management law
after State Sen. Michael Ben-
nett, R.-Bradenton, failed to
pass a measure imposing a
statewide impact fee system
on counties and municipali-
ties.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners took a Idading role
opposing the measure. Thax-
ton was one of the leaders
defending Sarasota County's
impact fee ordinances against
Bennett's push during the
2005 Florida legislative ses-
sion.
"I consider my appoint-


ment to be an affirmation of
Sarasota County's leadership
role in managing growth,"
Thaxton said. "As a result, I'll.
treat my appointment as a
team position and will take
advantage of the expertise of
county staff and my fellow
commissioners."
The agenda
The task force will deter-
mine whether the use of
impact fees should be regu-
lated by state statute instead
oflocal ordinances.
The panel is expected to
review, for example, the crite-
ria and methodology used
to determine impact fees,
notice provisions prior to
adoption, interlocal agree-
ments between counties and
cities to distribute proceeds,
and the range of use across
the state.
The task force will report
its recommendations to the


governor, the president of the
Senate and the speaker of
the House by Feb. 1.
Other members of the
task will include: State Sen.
Lee Constantine, R.-
Altamonte Springs; State
Rep. Larry Cretul, R.-Ocala;
Tom Greer, Osceola County
School Board; Frank
O'Reilly, Polk County School


Board; Rick Lott, mayor of
Plant City; Cathy Whatley,
Buck and Buck Realtors of
Jacksonville; David Carter,
an engineer from Winter
Haven; Dan DeLisi, a devel-
oper; Alfonso Zichella, a
home builder; Robert
Stewart of Pinellas County;
and Anet-ta Jenkins of West
Palm Beach.

ANGRY from page 1A
reporter asked Leon if he
would wear a yellow shirt as a
security aide.
"I would wear the uniform
of the day," he said, "whatever
that was."
Leon said all kinds of pro-
fessionals, including police
officers, firefighters, private
Security guards and doctors,
wear uniforms.
"In stadiums," he said,
"security wears uniforms so
they can be identified if some-
body needs help."
Baker said the decision to
have aides wear bright yellow
was made by a school official.
"You got people in the pri-
vate sector with absolutely no
police or security experience
making security decisions,"
Baker said. "Isn't that nice?"
'Totally ludicrous'
Baker said he has talked to
friends of his who are dep-
uties.
"They all said that the yel-
.low shirts are ludicrous,"
Baker said, "totally, totally, lu-
dicrous."
While Baker did give the
reporter the name of several
law enforcement officials he
spoke with, Sarasota County
Sheriff Bill Balkwill would be
the agency's only spokesman.
"The sheriff said, 'We are
not going to tell the schools
what uniforms to wear, it is a
school board function, they
(security monitors) are em-
ployees of the school board,"'
'Lt. Chuck Lesaltato said. "He
said, 'We have no say in the
matter.'"

REZONING frompage lA
The memo is a result of
Anderson's comments at last
week's council meeting and a
discussion between Ander-
son, Slaughter and City Man-
ager Marty Black, according
to Slaughter.
"I prepared the memoran-
dum under that direction. ...
Also, I work for the city man-
ager, not the
city attorney,"
Slaughter
said.
None of the
members on
planning
commission
said they
planned to'
Anderson discuss the
topic outside
of a regular meeting.
Council member Rick Tacy,
ex officio to planning com-
mission, sided with Ander-
son, finding the waters too
muddy be-
cause Miller
filed the ap-
with the city
simultane-
ously.
"I'm just
Going to talk
: about it at
Slaughter public meet-
ings," Tacy
said.
The city manager did not
review Slaughter's memo
before it was sent out, but
Black stood by his planning
director and agreed with his
conclusion. Black believes the
proposed zoning district can
be debated as long as no
direct reference to Miller's
project is made.
Waterfront Business Dis-

buildings and up to 11 types
of residential, commercial

CUTS fromnpage 1A


Management Associates in
February, making it privately
owned for the first time in its
50-year history.
VRMC is the city's second
largest employer, and Cala-
maras is an unpaid member
ofVRMC's board of trustees.
"I do stand by what I've said
earlier," Calamaras said Tues-
day after finding out about the
job cuts. "The services that they
are bringing to the area are
profit-driven and would send
patients up north."
Laying blame
SMH points to being the
region's only safety net for
medical care. As the only
publicly owned and operated
hospital in a four-county
region, it provides health care


annually for about 45,000
uninsured and 18,000 indi-
gent patients.
One example is how SMH
delivered 1,000 more babies
last year than in 2002, which
was when for-profit Doctors
Hospital closed its maternity
ward. About 49 percent of
those births were uninsured
or underinsured, according to
SMH.
Operating expenses are
projected to reach $419.5 mil-
lion this year. Revenues will
come in well short of that, at
$399.7 million.
Sarasota County property
taxes are estimated to bring in
about $26 million next year to
target charity care costs. SMH
speculates it will spend about
$43 million, leaving a large


gap.
That is why expansion and
increased patient volumes
are needed, according to
MacKenzie. SMH has 800
beds, but only fills between
400-560 on any given-day.
"This is not sudden. This
preceded my arrival (in Ap-
ril)," MacKenzie said. "What I
was trying to do was start the
process to return us to finan-
cial health.
"We have outstanding
medical care here, so no one
should feel this will in any
way impact that. ... I want to
be sure the community has
confidence that level of ser-
vice will continue."

'portion of the correspondence to the Chamber regarding the transaction.
We've followed Dave Voigt and his staff from various local financial institutions
for years. We didn't realize they handled mortgages which would have saved us time
and disappointments.
The Bank of Venice ran the credit reports, got the same scores as the other
lenders and made their decision on people and not numbers. Throughout the entire
process we were treated with friendly, courteous professionalism from the Bank of
Venice staff.
We closed on our mortgage a short time later. In closing, Dave Voigt and his
Bank of Venice employees have always greeted us by name and provided outstanding
customer service. It easy to see why Dave and the Bank of Venice is so successful."
The Bank of Venice is located at 240 Nokomis Avenue South on the Island of Venice.

WALKER from page 1A
pher in Italy as part of the
Women's Army Corps. Their
first son, Pete, was born in
Japan in 1955. Hal was born in
Pittsburgh, Pa., in 1958 while
Walker was working as a bat-
talion commander for the
CoastArtillery, which guarded
steel mills from enemy air
attack.
From 1960-1967, Walker
served as a military attache
and, as part of the diplomatic
tour, traveled all over the
world.
The family lived in Jordan
from 1961 to 1964, during
which time Lisa Najeeb Hal-
aby, the future Queen Noor,
reportedly babysat Walker's
children.
In 1967 Walker was set to
become the military attache
to Iraq when war broke out
between the Israelis and the
Arabs, so he was told to wait.
In the meantime he
brought his family to staywith
his father in Venice.
"After six months of wait-
ing and being bored out of his
mind, he decided he needed
to do something," said Hal
Walker.
The Army told him it still
wanted him in Iraq but not
until the war was over, so he
decided to retire from the
military, that is.
Class act
From 1967 to 1981, Walker
was heavily involved in com-
munity affairs, but he is most
often remembered as the re-
vered teacher of Problems in
American Democracy, a state-
mandated class for high school
seniors during the cold war.
When asked, many former
students say that Walker
scared the heck out them, but
they never learned so much in
their life.
He may have had the bom-
bastic demeanor of an Army
colonel, but 1976 VHS gradu-
ate Jim Clinch of Roberts
Nationwide Insurance said he
was "all bark and no bite" and
that he was a fair teacher and
really loved his students.
VHS 1970 graduate Debbie
Lawrence of Eden Salon has
fond memories of working on
current events assignments
with her dad every Sunday
night. She said she wanted to
do a good job for Col. Walker.
"He would often joke with
me, saying, 'Now, are these
your words or ydur father's?'
He seemed impressed that
my father was involved," Law-
rence said.
"He was an inspiration and
a role model to a generation
of young people. He taught
from personal experience,
which gave him tremendous
credibility in the classroom.
He was the finest instructor
I've ever had, ard that in-
cludes college and graduate
school professors. He was an
amazing individual," said
Clinch.

Col. Berry Walker pets a cheetah in Africa in 1965 while he was working as an inspector. His job
was to travel around to military embassies to ensure they were running properly.


also graduated in 1976, said
he found it amazing that the
teacher who taught the one
class everybody had to take
and would normally hate was
the most popular teacher at
VHS.
'At the beginning of the
school year everybody would
think they were lucky to get
Col. Walker for a teacher,"
said Lawrence.
Walker also taught at Ven-
ice Middle School, Manatee
Junior College and Central


Florida Community College.
Theory and practice
In the first half of the year
the class focused on econom-
ics and capitalism, and the
second half focused on com-
munism.
"It was his theory that you
couldn't understand commu-
nism unless you understood
democracy," said Boone. "The
class was so well taught that
the state of Florida used it as a
model for other schools to


teach the subject."
Walker co-taught the class
with another teacher,. Wayne
Lechleitner. They alternated
days and students would
never know who would be
teaching which day. They also
implemented an anonymous
grading system so that stu-
dents' grades were based on
the merit of their work alone.
Students were also award-
ed a monetary amount based
on their grades. Ranging from
$0 to $1,300, these could be


used to "purchase" stocks. At
the end of the year the three
students who made the most
on the stock market were
awarded real money from a
teachers' pool. First place was
$500, second was $100, and
third $50.
"This was his way of mak-
ing people understand you
had to work to make money
and there were ways to invest,
so when you got into the real
world you would know," said
Hal Walker, who was also a
student in his father's class;
Walker also served several
times as the senior-class
sponsor and directed school
plays.
"Every year all the classes
would do a talent show called
the Keyette Follies and he
would always volunteer to
direct it," said Lawrence.
"He was an icon who
impacted many lives. He was
my all-time favorite teacher
and probably had more influ-
ence on me than any teacher
in my life," said 1976 VHS
graduate John Ryan, CEO and
president of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce.
No walls
In addition to teaching Walk-
er was a member of the Venice
City Council for seven years and
presided over it for four.
"He was someone who put
his community first," said Ry-
an. "He was on the city coun-
cil at the time when I was a
member with the first youth
advisory board and it was his
influence that helped steer
me into a chamber career."
His son Hal said the initial
impetus that drove Walker to
run for council was keeping
down the number of condos
on the beach.


"He didn't want to see awall
go up between (Venice) and
the beach," HalWalker said.
He was also instrumental
in upgrading the sewer and
water systems. He was dedi-
cated to environmental and
ecological concerns, as his
main efforts were to keep
Venice simple and clean, to
cope with the growth and
avoid urban sprawl.
"He was the voice saying
Venice was not going to
remain a sleepy little retire-
ment community forever and
the city needed to be pre-
pared," said Boone.
During the time that Walk-
er served on the council, Ven-
ice was virtually the only
community between Stick-
ney Point Road in Sarasota
and Dearborn Street in Engle-
wood.
"Back then people had a
hard time believing that there
would be people living in
between," said Boone.
"Even though Venice has
grown, it's still as beautiful, if
not more so, than when I was
a kid. I would like to think my
dad had something to do with
that," Walker said.
Walker was also a member
of Rotary; a member and for-
mer head usher of St. Marks
Episcopal Church; the choir
director at Venice Presby-
terian Church; president of
the Sarasota County Mental
Health Association; and a
scoutmaster.
"My two brothers and I are
incredibly thankful to him
and my mother for teaching
us how to be (hopefully)
decent human beings and
thankful to everyone in the
community for their thoughts
and prayers during this diffi-
cult time," saidWalker.

Indians start repping for real season


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

This is the final week of
summer vacation for most
kids, but football players
already have their nose to
the grindstone.
High school practice offi-
cially began Monday across
the Sunshine State. The first
three days are for condition-
ing. The pads come on
Thursday with intense hit-
ting in the mid-summer heat.
Nick Coleman and his
assistants have his Indians
getting after it at 1 Indian
Ave. Venice is practicing from
1-5:30 p.m. through. Friday.
There is a special session
under the lights at 7 p.m.
Saturday night 'at Powell-
Davis Stadium.
With classes starting next
week. practice will be after
school from 2-5:30 p.m.
"It's going well." said Cole-
man, who is entering his
seventh year as boss hog at
\HS. "There's a lot of enthus-
iasm. We're working on tim-


ing."
Players have been lifting
over the summer. Now they
come together on the field
and put it all into motion.
"We're .reviewing what we
learned in the spring," Cole-
man said. "We'll get in as
much as we can this week"
There were pluses and
minuses in the spring game
against Southeast. There
were defensive breakdowns
that led to big passing plays,
allowing the Seminoles to-
build a lead. The Indians ran
the ball well and put together
late drives to create a 35-35
tie.
Venice wants to get to-
gether as a unit as soon as
possible. The dress rehearsal
will be the Aug. 19 Kickoff
Classic at Lemon Bay.
"We need to take care of
business and get better week
by week," Coleman said.
"Lemon Bay is the start."
The regular season opener
is Aug. 26 at Lakeland.
"They have to be ranked
as one of the top schools in


the nation," Coleman said.
The early season schedule
stays demanding with games
against Riverview and in
Miami against Monsignor
Pace.
"Riverview has a lot back.
They're gonna be tough,"
Coleman said. "Pace is load-
ed. They recruit."
While Coleman likes the
challenge of playing schools
like Lakeland and Pace, he
would like to play teams
closer to the area.
"I'm very disappointed
some schools won't play us,"
he said. "We drive by schools
that we should be playing.
We've. called them and asked
them to play. They've turned
us down."
Coleman was talking
about schools like North Port,
Palmetto. Bayshore and
DeSoto.
"Southeast and Lemon Bay
won't play us in die regular
season," Coleman added.

STAFF REPORT

Add another trophy to the
Suncoast Orthopedic mantle-
piece.
The local senior softball
team captured the 65 plus
super major bracket in the
NSA National Tournament
held July 29-20 in Gadsden,
Ala.


Orthopedic finished with a
record of 5-1 in the tourna-
ment and won the champi-
onship game 12-2 over
Stafford Sales of Ohio.
The leading hitters for
Suncoast Orthopedic includ-
ed Frank Vargo (.789),
Donnie Duell (.684), Jim
Spelbrink (.578) and Al
Vickers (.571). Vargo was the


tournament MVP. Also mak-
ing all-tournament from
Orthopedic were Duell,
Spelbrink, Vickers and
Digger Lines.
Strong defense was also
key according to manager
John Zoccano. Duell, Rich
Pigott, Vickers and Lines
were outstanding with the
leather.


Ellis runs like the wind, feels like a kid


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


One thing younger softball
players can sometimes take
for granted is their wheels.
We're talking about legs, as
in running.
Having basepath and
speed in the field can go a
long way in senior softball.
Astute manager John Zoc-
cano noticed a speedster
named Norm Ellis playing in
the Venice Wednesday and
Tuesday leagues. He asked
him if he wanted to join his
Suncoast Orthopedic 65-plus
traveling team.
Ellis said yes, and Orth-
opedic has been a better
team for it.
Ellis bats leadoff and likes
to hit to all fields.
"I usually hit the other
way or up the middle," said
the 69-year-old Ellis.
Once on base, Ellis can
strut his stuff.
"I've been timed two and


a half seconds between first
and second," said Ellis. "Peo-
ple have timed me with a
stop watch. Plus, I run for
everybody. I'm allowed to
pinch run once an inning."
Ellis' speed can make op-
posing infielders hurry their
glovework and throws. A
bobble here or there, and Ellis
is safe. Over the long haul,
giving a team an extra out
every couple innings can add
up to a lot of rallies.
Ellis attributes his speed
to not smoking and staying
in good shape. He was a
sprinter many moons ago
back in high school at Elmira
Free Academy in Elmira, N.Y.
Ellis worked at Gold Seal
winery in upstate New York
before retiring in 1986 and
moving to the Pennsylvania
side of the beautiful Dela-
ware River. He vacationed in
the Venice area and bought
a home in Englewood in 1996.
Ellis first began playing
slo-pitch senior ball in the


Englewood League, which
annually runs from January
through March.
He met local legend Hiugh
Brotherton, who told Ellis
that he ought to play up in
Venice.
"I went up and watched
them play on Wednesday
night," said Ellis, who plays
left field. "I said 'oh boy, I
might not be good enough,
to playwith these guys.'"
Ellis was drafted and be-
gan playing in the Wednes-
day Silver League. He has
expanded that to also playing
in the Tuesday League at the
Foxworthy Complex.
Then, Zoccano came a
calling, making Ellis a very
busy man.
"I play year-round," Ellis
said. "I play probably'300
games a year. I keeps me in
very good shape. The guys
you meet are great. We're
kids again. The bottom line
is, that's why we play ball."

Kathi Rader-Gibson: The Lemon Bay naturalist


BY GRACE GILBERT
STAFF WRITER

Kathi Rader-Gibson's Sara-
sota County business card
describes her as: Park Natur-
alist Beaches and Natural
Area Parks, Community Serv-
ices Parks and Recreation,
Lemon Bay Park.
The official "county-speak"
stands for much more. She
has run Lemon Bay Park since
1992, and there's not much
that happens in the park that
she doesn't know about or
share with others through
summer camps, seminars
and nature walks.
"I still don't know every-
thing there is to know about
here," Rader-Gibson said.
"There is always something
new here: new creatures, new
birds."
She doesn't work alone, of
course; and is quick to give
credit to the.well-honed team
of people who help keep the
"passive park" so beautiful.
"Volunteers keep our park
going," she said. "We have
about 20 volunteers and most
of them are here year-round.
"The only ones working
here in the summer are in the
office and out working on
trails. They get hot quickly in
the summer, so work shorter
hours. The volunteers not
here now are those who con-
duct our guided walks in -sea-
sowe Those walks begin in the
fall, since people don't wan t to
come out in the heat this ime
of year."
One of the most glamorous
park species is the bald eagle.
It's not unusual to pull into a
parking spot to attend a class
and see the large shadow of
an eagle soaring overhead.
"We had one'eagle baby
this year, very noisy and it
made a lot of ruckus," Rader-
Gibson said. "It was calling for
its mommy all the time, it
seemed. We heard it in the
park for about three months,
but it's apparentli-left the nest
for good. although the adult
eagles are still in the area."
She reported that there
have been plenty of big pud-
dles on or across some trails
lately, and the ground is satu-
rated. All trails are open, ho\w-
ever. Because there are homes
nestled up near the park bor-
ders, there is also some mos-
quito control. But within the
park, there is hand-treatment
for pests, with en\irornmen-
tally friendly pesticides..
Lemon Bay Park isn't large
by national standards, but it's
full of muhley grass, saw pal-
mettos, air plants and wax
myntle. There's a butterfly gar-
den that draws many species
of winged and caterpillar
beauty.


Sida, I realized I needed to go
back to square one and re-
learn about Southern plants
and soils," she said, recalling
how a two-year stint at
SarasotaVo-Tech helped fill in
the blanks, along with attend-
ingyears of night school while
working full time at Lemon
Bay.
"Could I stay here forever?
Probably not," she mused.
"But I still have lots to do here.
We acquired 12 acres in the
northwest corer of the park;
all that needs signage and
small trails. We had no access
to the property before, so now
we need to do assessments
and monitor the area. We'll
need to discover just what
kinds of critters, plants and
habitats are up there."
Rader-Gibson also report-
ed that, weather permitting,
there is a small prescribed
burn due to be set in Lemon
Bay Park within the next
month or so (while it's still


rainy season). There has been
a lot of foliage overgrowth,
and experts feel this is the
time to clear the area, while
also considering the safety of
local, humans.
"My hands are full, and
once October begins, we'll
really get our programs going
through April," she said. "If I
weren't doing this work,
maybe I'd be a teacher. A big
part of my job is being a
nature educator now. My
biggest hope is that once I
retire, I'll really be able to
enjoying walking through the
park. Just enjoying it."
Just as everybody else can
enjoy it. Free of charge. Every
day of the year.
Lemon Bay Park is at 570
Bay Park Blvd., Englewood.

details.

Kathi Rader-Gibson has run Lemon Bay Park for 13 years'and still is discovering new things
about her territory.


Florida native
Born and raised in Florida,
Rader-Gibson and her family
moved to Mansfield, Ohio,.
when she was a teenager. She
worked in the horticultural
business in Ohio, a love that
was good training for her
work here.
The petite Rader-Gibson
also worked in the candy de-
parunent at J.C. Penney back
in Ohio, but claims she never
put on weight in that job..
"You get sick of chocolate
when you work with it," she
admitted.
She returned to Florida in
1988 and worked in a garden
center and in irrigation de-
sign before joining up with
Sarasota County.
Her first job with the coun-
tv was as a nursery worker at
Lido Park in Sarasota. Then
she worked the beaches and
parks in North County, be-
came a crew leader and came
to Lemon Bay Park originally
to learn about parks for a
position at Shamrock Park in,
Venice. Luckily, the 200-acres
plus Englewood park has held
her attention since then.

OUR VIEW




PSC should say no to FP&L rate hike


t isn't often that a company can over-
charge its customers $1.6 billion and then
raise its prices. That is exactly what will
happen if the Public Service Commission
approves Florida Power & Light's latest rate
hike.
The PSC is considering a request FP&'s"
second this year for a $430 million rate
increase. Hearings on the request begin in
August and a decision is expected by
November. If approved, many of us will be
paying more for electricity by Jan. 1.
We supported FP&Is hurricane surcharge
of about $2 a month a rate increase that
was approved earlier this year. The tremen-
dous job FP&L did restoring power following
last year's four-pronged hurricane attack and
the fact the company's reserve funds were


pretty much depleted by that effort made a
good case for a jump in rates.
The latest- request makes little sense. The
only reason we can see for a second rate hike
is the fact that FP&L wants to continue its
practice of operating at a 12-percent profit
margin h trend that allows steady growth
in the value of its stock.
iCharley Beck is deputy public counsel for
the Public Counsel's Office, which is charged
with representing the best interests of
Florida's consumers. Beck says witnesses
who will testify before the PSC believe the
utility company should reduce its rates by
$679 million not increase them.
FP&L kept stockholders happy with a
12.68-percent after-tax profit in 2004. An
economist retained by Beck's office says that


profit margin should not be more than 8.8
percent after tax which is still generous.
What makes FP&'s request even more
egregious is the fact it has overcharged its
customers $1.6 billion the past few years
through bookkeeping measures including
inflating the depreciation on its nuclear
plants.
By filing high depreciation figures for the
nuclear plants, then having the nuclear
licenses extended thus extending the life
of the plant FP&L saved millions.
In the past, according to Beck and Mike
Twomey, lobbyist for AARP, FP&L has had
instances where it lost money by underesti-
mating costs. When that happened, the PSC
allowed the company to recoup the money
through rate increases stretched over a five-,


year period.
Now, however, the utility is asking the PSC
to allow it 20 years to payback the $1.6 billion
it overcharged customers. The discrepancy
in paying back overcharges and collecting
shortfalls is troubling to say the least.
FP&L is a valuable partner in hurricane
recovery and a utility that Floridians have
been able to count on to provide efficient
and consistent service. But we do not believe
there is justification for a second rate
increase while many of us struggle to rebuild
from last year's hurricanes not to mention
absorb a PSC-approved hike in telephone
rates:
If you agree, call the Public Service
Commission office at (800) 342-3552 or e-

What about the


zoning districts?


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


There are nine zoning dis-
tricts on U.S. 41 Business
from Venice Avenue south to
If'hiCircus Bridge. While the
city is considering an "over-
lay' district that would stan-
dardize, to some degree, the
architectural design, as along
East Venice Avenue, there is
no formal proposal to stan-
dardize the zoning districts.
What that means is that in
a district zoned for Com-
mercial General there is a 35-
foot height standard, plus a
possible additional 50 feet in
height with an approved
''conditional use," which is
the new name for the old
exception but with an im-
,portant difference council,
rather -than the planning
commission, votes on the
conditional use.
Commercial Shopping
Center zoning would allow 40

feet above the 35-foot base, so
that the Publix area might be
such a site.
An area zoned Office, Pro-
fessional and Institutional
would allow 50 feet above the
35-foot base.
In the areas marked for
Residential Multi-Family the
basic height allowed is 45 feet,
with an additional 30 feet
possible under conditional
use approval.
There is also zoning for res-
idential single family: 35 feet,
no conditional use'permitted.
In all, there are:
-* Two districts limited to 25
feet residential manufac-
tured home and commercial
neighborhood.
Two districts limited to 35
feet commercial industrial
and residential single family.
Five districts allowing
from 10 to 50 feet in condi-
tional-use height. The heights
possile in these districts are
45, (the commercial business
district, as on West Venice
Avenue), 85, 85, 75 and 75.
Now let's think about.the
possible consequences.
Would you like to see a 75-
foot condo rise where the Kon
Tiki motel or the next-door
marina is,-close to the Circus
Bridge?
We would then have 105
feet at the northern entrance
to the city, perhaps to be
joined by a hotel (or is it a
condo?) rising to 75 feet
(seven stories) between Ven-
ice and Tampa avenues next


to the Venice Avenue Bridge.
With a new building by the
Circus Bridge, all entrances to
the island would overwhelm-
Singly suggest you were enter-
ing "mid-rise condo-land,"
not the small town that has
been the overwhelming pref-
erence of people attending
the city's planning sessions.
The Circus Bridge possibil-
ity is not just columnist "pie-
in-the-sky." During'the con-
sideration of plans to develop
the airport, one idea floated
was that Mike Miller would
develop the Kon Tiki and
marina areas, with a new
manfiiaon the airport proper:
ty. None of that proposal was
approved at the time, but the
idea was there and is possible
in the future if council allows
it to happen.
It should be noted that the
Federal Aviation Administra-
tion might control the height
across the bridge on at least
some of the property. I am
mentioning. There are height
limits.on the bridge and near-
by, but whether they would
apply to the northern part of
the marina property is un-
known.
In conjunction with the
Miller proposal for develop-
ment of the property between
East Venice and East Tampa
avenues, which includes four-
to seven-story buildings, Mil-
ler has proposed a new zon-
ing area he feels is necessary
for his mixed-use develop-
ment.
The language used in
describing that proposal does
not spell out exactly what
locations are covered. Con-
cepts like "core business dis-
trict" and similar phrases
have been used, but it is not
clear what is included.
Is all of U.S. 41 Business
covered?
How about around' the
hospital or along the undevel-
oped parts of U.S. 41 Busi-
ness?
It seems appropriate for
council to make.its feelings on
future heights in these dis-
tricts clear by instructing city'
staff to develop a new zoning
plan that would spell oit
maximum heights, mass set-
backs, landscaping, 'etc. and,
of course, uses permitted.
With the new long-range
plan under development,
,now is the time to bring some
order to this potential trouble
spot.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Septic systems have no place in cities


Editor:
I read today that homeconstruction in North Port is being
delayed because builders are having to wait for septic system
permits. Is it possible that we are continuing to permit new
home developments without having public water and sewer as
a part of the development?
New homeowners should require public utilities in the 21st
century, and Sarasota County should not be an exception.
If there is a sincere concern for the potential homeowner,
there canbe little question that they should have to be respon-
sible for their own water and sewer. They would have to antic-
ipate that within a few years they will be responsible to pay for
public utilities.
There is discussion about unmanaged growth in Florida. It
would seem that growth would be modified if utilities were
required in all developed communities.
It is -understood that people living out in the country on
acreage would have t have their ownseptic tanks, but cer-
tainly not in a new development. There is certainly nothing
new about this idea. How can we continue to create problems
for the future?
I live in Nokomis, where we will be getting public water after
waiting for more than.20 years, and we will'still wait many
more years before sewer will be available. With all the research
and planning in the county government, we should not have to
repeat the mistakes of the past.

Stop picking on senior citizens


Senior criticism. I'm a senior citizen and I have to tell you
that I am getting thoroughly disgusted with the Gondolier Sun.
All I read about is criticism about the senior citizens. All these
know-it-alls have so much to say about senior citizens. I just
read where they should not allow anybody to come into the
city who's age 75. What is going on with these people? I tell you,
I'm just ready. Please, please, stop putting all these negative
thoughts in the paper about senior citizens. I'm sick and tired
of reading about the negative thoughts.'Tell those people to get
a life of their own.


Fireworks safety. I had a
comment to make about July
Fourth and July Fourth safety.
In South Venice there are
quite a few people who have
fireworks who can't afford a
lawnmower, but that's beside
the point. There are a lot of
fireworks, and also there are a
lot of screen cages for swim-
ming pools and lanais.
What we should have peo-
ple do is be courteous and
shoot the fireworks off where
a burning chunk of firework is
not going to land on a
screened-in lanai or pool
cage. It's really hard to trace
who's responsible for it. My
panels are $90 a piece and last
year I had to have two of them
replaced. I would imagine
most people who don't have a
screened-in lanai just don't
realize that. But they need to
take the fireworks somewhere
where it's going to be safe, not
to land in some dry grass
where it could start a fire. Just
commoncourtesy and safety.
Eminent domain. I just
wanted to comment on the
recent eminent domain deci-
sion. I think Harbor Lights
and Venice Bay Adult Park
better look out, because
they're going to build it there.
Post office. I don't kn6w if
you had a story about the new
post office in South Venice. I
would like to see the paper do
a follow-up on that article and
tell us what zip codes will be
assigned to that South Venice.
When they changed our zip
code some years ago to 34285,
I think we .were told that
eventually we were going to
be part of that South Venice
post office, and I think that's
horrible.
If those people were com-
plaining about having to go
up to Venice or to Beall's for
post office services, I think
this is going to be even worse.
If we have to pick up a pack-
age or something certified or
whatever, we'll have to go to
the post office from Bird Bay
all the way down to South
County, where the court-
house is,
Guide is confusing. This is

ences are confusing. For in-

lewood and Sarasota. Who-
ever did this didn't have much

idea.
Undermining wishes. The
two looming towers and one
more to come, which greet
you as you cross the north
bridge, are not enough. Now
we learn that the tag team of
Miller and Boone are trying
the old divide-and-conquer
approach to try and foist even
more high-rises and high
density onto the people of
Venice. Thanks to the vigi-
lance of Ed Martin, we now
find that they have been
secretly meeting individually
with members of city council
in order to' appoint council
members with their vision,
which is to undermine the
expressed wishes of the peo-
Sple ofVenice. Not surprisingly,
some of the wobbling mem-
bers of city council took a bite
of that apple. Fred Hammit
supports property rights. Rick
Tacy felt that several levels of '
building stepping up to the
towers would be acceptable.
And even John Simmonds
speaks of flexibility in regard
to building heights. While
these meetings may have
been within the letter of the
law, they clearly gave the
appearance of trying to make
an end-run around the wish-
es of Venice residents, voters
and taxpayers. And now that
the information has been
made public, there will sud-
denly be ahost of other meet-
ings to get the vision out. To
Miller and Boone, listen up to
our message and our vision:

want more high-rises or more

that adding to your collective
coffers is necessarily in the

Little League money. This
is in regard to Venice Little
League. When I signed my

included two balls to be

about entering that contest,
and the rest I guess was for
some balls for the team
because we carry bur own bat
and gloves and the coach and
everyone are not paid. And
that was for an end-of-the-
year baseball party. Now we're
into the end of July and we've
still never had that end-of-
the-year baseball party, so I
was wondering -if someone
can tell me what all the
money went for since it looks
like they're not paying the
electric bill over there. It cer-
tainly didn't go to the electric-
ity for the ballpark. But if I
could find out before next
year, that would be appreciat-
ed.
SUV parking. This is in
regard to whether parking lots
should have special sections
for SUVs and other over-size
vehicles. The answer is yes,
primarily because they repre-
sent a safety hazard in public
parking spaces. They shut off
visibility and they cause many
near-misses or actual acci-
dents. The solution is to have
a parking lot 5 miles away,
make them park there and
charge them 50 bucks each
way.

Misidentification. I'm call-
ing in reference to the num-
ber of misidentified wildlife
photos that have been in your
paper lately. With the Internet
as a close resource, you
should be able to properly
identify birds, animals and
mammals of the Florida area.
This latest picture of a com-
mon gallinule was identified
as a yellow-tipped billed
duck. Come on, this is ridicu-
lous. Have someone do a little
research and get this stuff
right. You're doing a disservice
to the people who don't really
realize what these animals
are.

They saved the jetty, too


BY GLORIA SCOBORIA
GUEST COLUMNIST

To be sold: 10 acres prime
waterfront land, on gulf and
waterway, apply Sarasota
County.
This ad was in the papers
in 1975. Iwas curious.
We were new.here and had
just bought an old house in
Nokomis to use for winter vis-
its. We found the beach and
the fishing area down by the
jetties were such a wonderful
place to visit, where we could
swim, walk the beach, take
pictures, take friends for pic-
nics or just watch the fisher-
men on the long jetty reach-
ing out into the gulf.
The pelicans waiting pa-
tiently-on the side for a hand-
out, the fish crows wandering
all about, inspecting all they
could see and commenting
"Uh-oh" from time to time. A
large flock of lovely blue par-
rots,, which were so pretty I
wondered how they could fly
free, lived in the trees nearby.
It seemed too bad for this
wonderful land to become
private and built up with
high-rises and apartments.
So, as I was opposed to this
sort of development, I went to
the meeting.
The property really was for
sale. Several hundred people
whom I did not know were
there and raised their voices
loudly.
"My granddaddy fished
here all his life," shouted one
elderly man. "I want my


grandsons to fish here, too."
S"We pay our taxes in Sara-
sota County," called out an-
other. "They can buy this land
for a nice park. Then we can
all use it."
"Boats go in and out of the
waterway by here all the time.
We can sit here and watch the
show if this is a park," a wom-
an added.
"The end of the jetty is a
great place to catch fish. It
would not be fair to make it
private," everyone agreed.
"Our fish camp is the only
place to buy bait," someone
said. "Don't take this and
close it up." "
S "This is our business," said
one man. fWe have been sell-
ing bait, and also selling food:
hot dogs, hamburgers, coffee,
beer, soda, candy and news-
papers."
By now the commissioners
were satisfied. They promised
all things. Fortunately, they
agreed with us.
The county sent planners
to decide how to develop the
park. Clean up the trash, al-
though fishermen are always
neat; plan some simple sand
roads; choose a parking area;
build picnic pavilions, rest-
. rooms and a refreshment
building; make paths for
handicapped visitors.
Well, the concession stand
was a problem.
Fifty years earlier, some-
one had barged an old trolley
car all the way from Tampa
and had installed it on the
north side of the waterway. It


had been serving the needs of
the visitors for all that time.
Would they close and
move away? No way. This was
a business and the owner
wasn't going to leave it if he
could help it. It went to court.
Guess who won?
The owner of the North Jetty
Fish Camp was declared the
permanent owner of the build-
ing and its land. How? By
adverse possession or, simply
speaking, squatter's rights.
Now the North Jetty Park is
one of the prime attractions
of this area. Thousands of
people come to visit annually,
especially because of this
wonderful fishing and swim-
ming spot.
Imagine'the money they
bring to hotels, motels, rest-
aurants, theaters, churches,
and golf and country clubs, to
say nothing of the money
they spend in stores, with
hairdressers, barbers, news-
papers, grocers, druggists,
dentists, doctors and so on.
There is no end to the
money spent by these dear
and valuable "snowbirds."
And the best thing about it is
that many of them come to
stay. How can we blame
them? We did too.
The people insisted on
keeping the North Jetty Park
Area as a public place for all of
us, just as the people saved
Nokomis Beach. Let us thank
the Sarasota County commis-
sioners for seeing what the
people wanted, and giving it
to them.

Groups benefit from Sarasota County cultural grants


STAFF REPORT

Several Sarasota County
groups will receive grants
approved by Sarasota County
commissioners last week. The
grants are funded by tourist
development taxes.
Twenty-five groups with 33
projects will split $926,100 in
grants to support arts and
cultural projects. The groups,

Venice police officers are better equipped to deal with children
in crisis, thanks to the donation of stuffed animals by a local
knitting guild.


Knitting.guild gives


VPD'Precious Pals'


STAFF REPORT


When police are called to
the scene of an accident or
crime in which children are
involved, the experience for
the children can be frighten-
ing and stressful. Many chil-
dren can be calmed by having.
a o4,ify friend to hang on
to un' fthe situation is re-
solved and the child can feel
safe.
That is why officers often
carry stuffed critters in their
squad cars. The friendly crea-
tures usually-are the result of
donations.
The Heritage Trail Knitting
Guild recently bought some
huggable stuffed pets and
dressed them in hand-knitted
sweaters and scarves before
turning them over to the
Venice Police Department to
'comfort children in distress.
The national organization,
Knitting Guild of America, has
donated thousands of the
dressed stuffed animals to law
enforcement agencies across
the nation as part of its "Pre-
cious Pals" program.
According to the national
guild, the precious pals ,pro-,
vide a child in crisis with the
'feeling of being loved and
cared for,'and sometimes
even becomes the child's
friend and confidante who
can be told about a serious
incident being investigated.
The local guild, which
donated about 20 precious
pals to the Venice Police


Department, meets .on the
first Tuesday of the month at 7
p.m. at Venice Public Library.
The group's current project is
making helmet liners for the
troops in Iraq. They hope to
have those shipped to Iraq in
September.

about the Heritage Trail Knit-
ting Guild,. contact "Jamie
Killorin at 485-5196.

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.

WISDOM TEETH-REMOVE OR NOT REMOVE?
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
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.

rebuild schools and libraries
there. Since then, he and his
wife have been back at least
twice and are planning addi-
tional trips and looking for
helpers. Go and listen to him.
You will not be disappointed.
The talk will be at the Frances
T. Bourne Jacaranda Public

World famous animal
trainer and circus performer
Gunther Gebel-Williams died
inVenice on July 19, 2001.
Friday, Tuly 1, a larger-
than-life bronze likeness of
the Ringling Bros. and Barn-
Lum & Bailey circus star was
brought to \Venice on a simple
flat-bed trailer. Now installed
on a granite base at the Venice
Trail Depot, the statue is the
first piece of public art to be
erected in the city of Venice.
"It is a great honor for the
family," the circus star's wid-
ow, Sigrid Gebel, said.
Often described as a sim-
ple man who loved animals,
Gebel-Williams was better
known throughout the world
for Iris gleaming smile, stun-
ning blond hair and the glitzy
costumes he wore as he en-
tered the circus arena, often
standing astride an elephant.
He also was known for an
American Express commer-
cial in which he appeared on
camera with his favorite leop-
ard, Kenny; draped around his
shoulders.
The tribute to Gebel-
Williams was first suggested
by then I nice Gondolier Sun
editor Doug Bolduc shortly
after the star's death. Fund-
raising efforts began in
earnest in fall 2001 with a sale
of circus memorabilia orga-
nized by Bolduc and receipt
of a check from die \'enice
Gondolier Sun. Bolduc also
formed the steering commit-
tee that would oversee the
project.
"It is better than I could
have ever imagined," Boduc
said when he saw it for the
first time while visitingg Venice
last week. "He looks powerful
and majestic."
A worldwide call to artists
was issued and the field was
eventually narrowed to five
who were invited to Venice to
be interviewed by the com-
minee.
Sculptor Ed Kasprowicz of
Apollo Beach won out and a
contract was drafted and
approved early in 2003. As
fund-raising efforts accelerat-
ed, fund administration was
taken over by the Venice
Historical Society, because of
its existing 501(c)3 status,
which allowed donations to
be considered tax deductible.
Under the terms of that
contract, Kasprowicz was to
make a small nude maquette
of the performer, have that
approved by the committee,
then create a life-size figure.
Following approval of the life-
size figure, the artist would
then clothe the small maque-
tte in performance garb, and
when that statue received
committee approval he would
dress the full-size statue.
Kasprowicz worked closed


Wrapped in blankets, the stat-
ue was hoisted by a crane
prior to being installed on a
granite base.

iting Venice from his home in Germany.


with the performer's widow
Sigrid Gebel and several
members of the committee,
including this reporter, who
made trips to the artist's stu-
dio in Apollo Beach to check
the progress.
"Sigrid really made the
decisions as to the pose and
the expression," he said. "If
some little thing was wrong,
she was there to point it out."
Final approval of the statue
was issued by the committee
in August a year ago and a


month later by board mem-
bers of the historical society.
At that time, Kasprowicz
began the mold-making
process leading up to the
casting and finishing work
preceding the luly 1 trip to
Venice.
Casting was done in two
steps and involved 11 sepa-
rate pieces for the body and
an additional 28 pieces for the
cape, a total of 39 separate
pieces. In January, Kaspro-
wicz appeared before .the

committee with the bronze
casting of the statue's left fore-
arm as well as the clay fore-
arm and mold so that com-
mittee members would un-
derstand the involved pro-
cess. Kasprowicz assembled
the body as the cape was cast,
eventually welding all 39
pieces together. Completion
involved various techniques
that would hide the welds
and provide a uniform finish
for the 970-pound statue.
"I've never done that big a

cape," Kasprowicz said. "The
figure weighed just over 300
pounds. The cape was the rest
of it and with the cape, both
sides had to be finished. With
a regular figure, the welding
can be on the inside. To finish
the cape, the welding had to
be ground and textured on
both sides. I also did a lot of
beating on it with a sledge
hammer to make it fit. I hit my
hand once with the sledge
hammer and couldn't use that
hand for a few days."
Once the statue's 39 indi-
vidual castings were welded
together, Kasprowicz trans-
ported it back to the foundry
in Sanford for "beadblasting"
and the application of the
patina, which gives it its fin-
ished color. The beadblasting
technique involves the use of
glass beads and results in a
unified color and texture. The
technique is finer than sand
blasting, the artist said.
"If I had brought the piece
home for the patina, it would
have begun to oxidize on the
way," he said. "So I had them
do the patina."
To get it there safely, he
hand-carved wood cradles on
which to rest the legs, neck
and body of the statue, which
was transported in a face-
down position. June 30, he
returned to the foundry, 111
miles from his Apollo Beach
home, to collect the statue
prior to its installation. Each
time he set out on the road,
pulling the heavy statue on its
trailer, moving a little slower
than the other drivers, Kas-
prowicz knew he and the stat-
ue also were at the mercy of
the other drivers. Early the
next morning, the statue
made its final trip on the in-
terstate when the artist deliv-
ered it to its final destination
behind the VenieeTrain De-
pot ...
Kasprowicz coordinated
his delivery with the arrival of
the crane that had been hired
to put the statue's granite base
in place. The granite base was
epoxied to a cement base.
Holes were drilled 11 inches
into the granite to line up with
10.75-inch rods, which had
been welded to the statue by
the sculptor. Epoxy was ap-
plied to the rods and to the
holes, and there was a 15-
minute window of time for
the installation of the statue.
"Once that is in there, you'd
have to use dynamite to dis-
lodge it," Kasprowicz said.
"Everything went smoothly.
There were no glitches and no
problems."
Long-term maintenance
will involve a twice-yearly
application' of paste wax, he
said. If not maintained the
statue would eventually turn
green from neglect.
"That is not a good look,"

Man's Bird Sanctuary


STAFF REPORT


The board of directors of
the Pelican Man's Bird Sanc-
tuary announces that it is
temporarily curtailing its res-
cue efforts due to the number
of birds in its care. The sanc-
tuary will remain open to vis-
itors. A lack of volunteers and
fund has caused the sanctu-
ary to reach maximum capac-
ity in the rehabilitation
department. The sanctuary
hopes to resume limited res-
cues soon and full rescue
activities at summer's end.


If you have a sick or injured
bird, small mammal or rep-
tile, please call 388-4444 for
referrals to other facilities in
the area that can help.
Pelican Man's Bird Sanctu-
ary will remain open for visi-
tors to view the hundreds of
birds and reptiles that cannot
be released because of dis-
abilities or because they are
nonnative species.
Pelican Man's Bird Sanctu-
ary is located 1708 'ken
Thompson Parkway, Saraso-
ta. Cost is $6 for adults and $4
for children younger than 12.

BY RICH LAMANCE
GUEST WRITER

When most of us read or
watch news reports warning of
short range missile tests by
North Korea, we shake our
heads and wonder if the 55-year
stand-off between the democ-
ratic South and the communist
North will ever be resolved. For
the son of a Nokomis resident,
saber-rattling by North Korea
takes on a much more ominous
meaning.
Air Force Senior Airman
Damein Truoccolo, son of Lisa
Hollinger of Nokomis, is
assigned to the 607th Air and
Space Communications
Squadron, the most forward
deployed Air Force unit within

the Republic of Korea and less
than 50 miles from the demilita-
rized zone that separates the
two sides.
Truoccolo is a communica-
tions systems controller. "I am
responsible for ensuring the
connection of secure network
data vital to the war-fighting
effort," said the 2001 graduate of
Venice High School. "I manage
network security vital to the
deterrence of a North Korean
invasion."
Home to the 51st Fighter
Wing and the 7th Air Force,
along with 24 tenant organi-
zations, Osan Air Base is also
the home to F-16 fighters and
the A-10 Thunderbolt II
close-air support aircraft, and
all associated support units.

Truoccolo believes the Air
Force mission here is an
important one.
"We have to keep a con-
stant communication flow
that ensures the right intelli-
gence ,gets to the right:_peo-
pie," he said.
For many, the sights,
sounds and smells of this
Asian country produce a form
of culture shock, for others a
sense of adventure and a
chance for once-in-a-lifetime
experiences. "Korea is much
nicer than I expected," said
Truoccolo. "The people are


very courteous and helpful.
There are also alot of interest-
ing foods to try and the shop-
ping is great. I've been to
Seoul, which is a beautiful
city with many things to do
and see."
For Truoccolo and fellow
airmen stationed at South
Korea's most northern de-
ployed U.S. air base, life is
always a bit on edge with the
reality that even after more
than half a century following
the conflict between north
and south, tensions are just as
high today..

Man's best friend can be a child's too


PHOTOS COURTESY OF THERAPY DOGS INTERNATIONAL


BY KAREN SHIDELER
GUESTWRRIER

Boy, does Moxie know how
to work a room. With her silky
hair and dark eyes, she's the
center of attention from the
second she walks through the
door. And when her warm
nose nuzzles in some child's
face, the smiles that result
.could power an electric plant.
SBut when we say that
Moxie, an Australian shep-
herd, knows how to work a
toom, the emphasis is on
workrk"
SMoxie, owned by Kelly
,Spencer, is a therapy dog, and
this summer one of herjobs is
at Camp Woodchuck in
Wichita. Kan., a Rainbows
United day camp for school-
aged children with special
peeds.
S Therapy dogs have been
used to provide emotional
care in nursing homes, other


health care settings and
schools for about three
decades. Interacting with the
animals can lower 'blood
pressure, relieve stress and
ease depression, said the
Therapy Dog International
Web site.
At Camp Woodchuck, ther-
apy dogs visit several times a
week, helping the children
with language and other
skills.
"The dogs really inspire
language use," said Diane
Page, coordinator of the ther-
apy dog program for
Rainbows United.
One quiet young boy
proved her point: "Mockie,
Mockie," he squealed in
Delight as the dog visited his
class.
Another boy got up from
his desk, pulled off the knee-
high cowboy boots he was
wearing with his shorts and
sprawled onto the floor, his


arms around Moxie's neck as
she lay beside him.
"What's that called?" he
wondered, pointing at a
patch ofMoxie's coat.
"That's called copper, or


brown," Spencer said. "What
else do you see?"
They talk about black and
white and the other colors in
her fur.
"What's this?" the boy
asked Spencer, pointing to a
badge around her neck.
"Her badge," she said.
Moxie and other therapy dogs
have ID cards to show they've
been through training and
are certified.
Therapy dogs must have
basic obedience training,
then go through additional
training before taking a 14-
step test to become certified.
They're chosen in part for
their temperament: They
can't react when a child
hollers "Boo!" or clamps an
ear in a death grip. In a nurs-
ing home, the dogs can not be
distracted by tears or laugh-
ter. They can't shy away from
walkers or motorized wheel-
chairs.
Their handlers are tested,
too, because they stay with
the dog.
In one classroom, Spencer
encouraged Moxie to get up
on a couch, so a blind young
man could explore the differ-
ences between soft and hard,
as he stroked her nose and
neck and gave her a treat.
Moxie went on physical
therapy detail, too, helping a
girl stretch her arm as she
reached to pet.
She helps children whose
movements are jerky and
impulsive learn the safe ways
to approach and treat dogs,
including those in their
neighborhoods.
And she did her best to lick
off every single freckle on one
giggling, cooperative young-
ster's face.
"Moxie loves her job,"
Spencer said.


Even so, you can tell asshe
walked down the hall that she
was ready to go home at the
end of her workday.
"She'll sleep all the way,"
Spencer said.

Summer camps inspire youth


living with sickle cell disease


Camps created to meet the needs of youngsters
with sickle cell disease provide temporary refuge.


STAFF REPORT

Young adults commonly
experience feelings of fear
and anxiety at the prospect of
becoming independent and
taking on new responsibili-
ties. For those who suffer
from sickle cell disease, a
potentially fatal blood disor-
der that affects approximately
72,000 people nationwide,
those feelings are often com-
pounded by the possibility of
being ill for the rest of their
lives. For many, side effects of
the disease, such as episodes
of severe pain and numerous
physical .limitations, often
prevent them from having
fun and enjoying summer
activities with their friends.
Fortunately, there are more
than 16 summer camps
around the country tailored
to meet the physical and
emotional needs of children
with sickle cell disease that
present a temporary refuge
where having fun, meeting
new friends and learning how
to manage their disease are at
the top of the agenda.
Each summer, camp coun-
selors, volunteers and med-
ical staff provide 24-hour sup-
port, allowing children to dis-
cover new personal strengths
and capabilities and learn the
importance of taking respon-
sibility for their condition.


"While having fun at camp
is one of our primary goals, it
is also very important that
these children learn how to
manage sickle cell disease,
which may include blood
transfusions and how to best
avoid complications of the
disease," said Michael De
Baun, MD, MPH Associate
Professor of Pediatrics, Bio
statistics and Neurology, Wash-
ington University School of
Medicine and St. Louis
Children's Hospital, St. Louis,
MO, and member of the
Gateway Sickle Cell Disease
Association board, an organi-
zation that provides funding
for sickle cell disease educa-
tional programs, including
summer camps, in St. Louis.
Blood transfusions, neces-
sary for some patients with
sickle cell disease, are one
important aspect of disease
management.
Regularly scheduled blood
transfusions increase the
number of normal red blood
cells in circulation, which in
turn helps to reduce episodes
of pain, risk of stroke and
other complications caused
by sickle cell disease.
However, regular blood
transfusions can result in a
condition known as iron
overload.
"Iron overload is a life-
threatening condition which


can result from necessary
blood transfusions," said Dr.
DeBaun. "It is critical that
children with sickle cell dis-
ease who receive frequent
blood transfusions are
screened for iron overload
and, if present, are treated
with iron chelation therapy.
Without treatment iron over-
load can have debilitating
effects such as damage to the
heart and liver."
While the prospect of liv-
ing with sickle cell disease can
be difficult to accept for
patients and their families,
with proper medical care and
treatment, people with the
condition are able to live rela-
tively comfortable, produc-
tive lives making routine
medical care critical. These
camps reinforce the impor-
tance of proper medical care
and offer hope to children
with sickle cell disease.
"I love being at summer
camp with my friends and
not having to worry about
being left out of activities or
feeling different," said Capria
Rogers, who has been attend-
ing Camp Crescent in St.
Louis for five years. "Summer
is the best time of the year
because I get to go to camp
and have lots of fun with my
friends and the counselors."

sickle cell disease, iron over-
load and summer camps for
children with special needs,

SOLTH NEWS


Ruthless turtle


hunters of the past


'Flower Guys business blooms


BY DIANA HARRIS
COLUMNIST

Professional turtle hunting
is a piece of Florida history.
The facts concerning the
occupation are disturbing.
Although turtle remains
have been found in early
native American middens in
Florida, the real pressure on
the seagoing creatures didn't
start in our part of the world
until Columbus led the way
across the Atlantic. Columbus
and his crews might not have
arrived alive if it hadn't been
for the large numbers of tur-
tles that were caught on the
voyages, supplying his ships
with fresh meat.
The new world lost no time
in over-harvesting sea turtles.
Turtle hunting became a rec-
ognized occupation.
As early as 1620, a turtle
law went into effect that said
immature smaller turtles
couldn't be killed. Hard to
enforce, the law was mostly
ignored and the wholesale
slaughter continued.
The docile creatures were
easily caught and provided
large amounts of tasty beef-
like meat to sailors, explorers
- even pirates. Turtles, being
very hardy, could be kept alive
for weeks, upside down, on
the decks of ships.
There was also a good tur-
tle-egg market and a lot of
money was to be made by
digging the nests and gather-
ing the eggs. The hunters
showed no concern for the
mass destruction of the nests
in their quest for the ping-
pong-ball-shaped eggs.
The turtle hunters were
ruthless, taking as many tur-
tles as they could get.
,A hunter named Charles
Peake, for instance, who lived
on the east coast of Florida,
reportedly .caught and sold
2,500 green turtles in 1886.
But by the turn of the century,


where once there had been
millions, sea turtles only
numbered in the thousands
in Florida waters. In 1895,
hunter Peake was able to
catch only 60 turtles.
During the spring and
summer months when, it was
known, female turtles came
ashore to lay their eggs, the
turtle hunters roved the pass-
es up and down the coast.
Charlotte Harbor, due to its
large size, was perhaps the
most popular spot on the
southwest coast of Florida for
the hunters, who usually net-
ted the harmless creatures as
they were swimming on the
surface.
They were taken aboard
and hauled upside down in
the bottom of the boat, often
to Chokoloskee in the Ever-
glades. There, they were kept
alive in turtle crawls until
eventually they were trans-
ported to Key West, where
there were more turtle crawls
and a good turtle market.
"Turtle turning" was a dif-
ferent story.
Early Florida pioneers who
lived near the coast, including
those in this area, supple-
mented their basic fish diets
with turtle meat. Just as they
shot no more deer or other
animals than they needed,
they turned no more turtles
than their families could use.
The whole beast was used;
nothing was wasted and the
nests were usually not dis-
turbed.
For the past 37 years there
have been dedicated volun-
teers in our area who have
tagged and monitoring turtles
and their nests. They have
made us more aware of the
very precious and fragile tur-
tles that nest on our beaches.

"Flower Guy" Tom Aufderheide has been delivering flowers and smiles to local businesses for more than six years.


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

Tom Aufderheide is a
quiet, soft-spoken man who
has become a familiar face
around town.
He's known as "The Flower
Guy."
Aufderheide, an Engle-
wood resident, travels from
business to business, ped-
dling his colorful bouquets.
He also travels north to
Sarasota and south to Fort
Myers.
"I love my work; it's a great
job," Aufderheide said. "It's


not easy, though. It's a lot of
hard work. It's a lot of hours."
Although his job is time-
consuming, Aufderheide said
he enjoys it because he loves
people.
"I like to take care of peo-
ple," Aufderheide said, "keep
them happy."
Over the past six years,
locals have come to know
Aufderheide as the easy-go-
ing, one-man traveling flower
shop. His technique is a
super-soft sell.
"I never ask if they want
flowers. That would go
against my rules," he said. "It's


a soft sell; it's not a hard sell."
. Aufderheide presents his
roses, orchids and sunflowers
in a large basket to businesses
that have gotten to know him
and look forward to his regu-
lar visits.
Aufderheide said he goes
to all types of places to sell his
wares: salons, dealerships,
offices and restaurants.
"I don't go into a restaurant
until I make myself known,"
he said. "I do it very low-key."
It's like his business card
says: "'Anytime, anywhere,
always."
Aufderheide said he lost


sleep staying up late to "tube"
more than 100 roses for an
area restaurant that planned
to give them out at a grand
opening over the weekend.
Aufderheide said he gets
all his flowers from South
America, and he replenishes
his flowers almost daily.
"They are very, very fresh
and inexpensive, wholesale
prices," he said.
The Flower Guy can be
contacted at (941) 380-7773.

Q 1 Vulnerable, you hold:
*9763 c J862 oA62 476
Partner opens the bidding with two no
trump (20-22 HCP). What do you
respond?
A You have enough for game. But
three no trump is not necessarily the
right spot. If partner has a four-card
major, your ruffing values in clubs
could make the suit contract superi-
or. Bid three clubs, Stayman, to hear
if opener has a four-card major.
Q 2 Vulnerable, as South you hold:
SA865 AA754 oAQ 4A83
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 14 Pass
What do you bid now?
A Your lack of intermediates is a
minor flaw, but it is more than com-
pensated for by the fact that you hold
all four aces. That makes your hand
worth some 19-20 points in support
of spades. We would jump to four
spades, especially ,since the vulnera-
ble game bonus is attractive.
Q 3 Vulnerable, you hold:
AAQJ7 cK6 Q AQJ4 4J87


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 14
What do you bid now?


*40I

LM

EAST
Pass


A The strength of this hand is mis-
leading if you removed the two
black jacks it would not really alter
its worth in support of spades. Also,
it is a six-loser hand, and there is no
reason to expect partner to cover
three of those. Make an invitational
jump to three spades.


A It might seem that partner dis-
likes no trump and has a weak hand
with long spades, and would like to
get out of the auction. Nothing could
be further from the truth no one is
good enough to be able to tell the
hand can make exactly nine tricks in
the suit and not eight or nine at no
trump. South is offering a choice of
games so, with only two spades, bid
three no trump.
Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
AAK9 )KJ4 oAQ965 4Q10

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 1NT Pass
?
What do you bid now?

A Even if partner is at the low end
of his values for a one-no-trump
response, the combined holding
should be enough for game. Don't
put pressure on partner by pussyfoot-
ing around with a raise to two no
trump. Jump to three no trump.

Marathon training: Should I be


running a lot or just a little?,


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

I am so confused. If you
know what I should do, please
drop me a line.
Three weeks ago I wrote
about revving up my training
program to include two-a-day
runs in an effort to get ready
for marathon season several
months from now. The train-
ing article by Ed Eyestone that
inspired me to do this is
inside of the August edition of
Runner's World magazine.
Now, I came across
Eyestone's article while surf-
ing online, so imagine my sur-
prise when I picked up the
magazine at a newsstand and
found this article on page 72:
"The Less-is-More Marathon
Plan."
So, in the same edition we
have an article on page 40
telling me to run like a mad-


man in order to better my
marathon times, and then
one in the back in which I find
out I should only be lacing up
the running shoes three times
a week instead of 10!
Ugh. What's a guy to do?
It didn't help that I came
across the two articles Wed-
nesday night, after complet-
ing my second run of the day
- this one in 88-degree
weather. I was a bit grumpy.
A day or two later I real-
ized, it doesn't really matter
which plan is the right one. All
that matters is which plan
works for you.
I can vouch for this follow-
ing my 2002 Columbus
Marathon in Ohio. That was
the first time I had made a
concentrated effort to run
again, and when I started I
weighed 65 pounds more
than I do today.
Never did drop all of the
weight I wanted to, but I did
shave off 30 pounds in 2002
and finish the 26.2-miles.
We'll leave out the time,
because it was quite slow.
However, I finished and
that's something very few
people can brag about.
The only way I finished
was by following the Jeff
Galloway run-walk marathon
program.
In a .nutshell, you take


timed walk breaks at regular
intervals (either minute
markers or mile markers) in
order to prevent injuries and
maintain endurance.
That plan was perfect for
someone as overweight as I
was. Over the years, I've met
talented runners much faster
than I am who follow the pro-
gram.
The real question I must
answer is: What do I want to
do?
Is my goal to simply be a
machine that churns out the
miles in order to beat the
clock, or is every run a mini-
adventure along the beach,
roads and trails of South
County?
If I have to pick, I'm going
with the mini-adventures.
And by running twice a day, I
have twice as many adven-
tures.
That is what works for me.
You'll have to look in the mir-
ror to figure out what will
work for you.
See you around the Back of
the Pack.
Back of the Pack is a week-
ly running column appearing
every Wednesday. Send run-
ning-related e-mails to

Walkers reach 500 miles


STAFF REPORT


Venice area residents who
participate in the Saturday
morning exercise walks along
the Venetian Waterway Park
reached a 500-mile mark July
16. It is typical of the group
that one individual inquired:
"What happens when we
reach the 1,000-mile mark?"
The Walkabouts began in
February of this year with
approximately 40 walkers
ranging in ages from teen-
agers to senior citizens. They
walk at their own pace and
distance on various courses


on or along the VWEP
The walks begin at the Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice/VWP park-
ing lot located at the juncture
of Golf Drive and Guild Drive
at 8 a.m. every Saturday on a
course of about 2.5 miles.
The Walkabout was plan-
ned and organized by Monty
Andrews, vice president of
Venice Area Beautification
Inc., and his wife, Jan. The
South County YMCA and the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce have joined VABI
to sponsor the Walkabouts.
The participants have been

awarded T-shirts, towels and

Anyone interested in join-
ing the program should call

obtain information.
The Walkabout promotes
physical fitness and a sense of
well-being that comes with
being outdoors in the beauti-
ful environment of the
Intracoastal Waterway. You
also have the opportunity to
meet other Venice area walk-
ers.

Volunteers needed for Girl


Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida


STAFF REPORT


PHOTO COURTESY OF ALLYN GALLERY
"Beach Street" by Luke Steadman, oil on wood, 36 inches by 26
inches.


There are many girls on a
waiting list to join Girl
Scouting. Why? Simply be-
cause there aren't enough Girl
Scout leaders. For girls to
benefit from Girl Scouting,
they need the guidance of
concerned, caring adults. Girl
Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida,
Inc. needs adult volunteers to
help deliver the Girl Scout
program and help girls grow
in strong in mind, body, and
character.
Come share the benefits of
knowing you are making a
difference in a girl's life. Cur-
rent volunteers have shared
that they, too, have grown,
made new friends, and have
participated in new experi-
ences.
Being a Girl Scout volun-
teer means sharing one's time


and talent as part of an orga-
nization that has helped girls
become competent and re-
sourceful citizens for 93 years.
There are various opportuni-
ties with flexible options and
hands-on training is provided
to all volunteers. Volunteers
may work directly with girls
throughout the year or lend
their expertise for a specific
short-term project or event.
Girl Scout troop leaders are
needed most urgently, how-
ever, other volunteer posi-
tions are available: Train-
er/workshop coordinator,
translator, driver, first-aider,
chaperone, event director,
fund-raiser, nature consul-
tant, guest speaker, cultural
awareness instructor, men-
tor/advisor (especially to help
girls with specific badge re-
quirements, and marketing
consultant.


Girl Scouting is open to
women and men volunteers
who are older than age 18,
who make the Girl Scout
Promise, accept the Girl Scout
Law and pay the $10 annual
membership dues.
Because the organization
believes that female role
models are especially impor-
tant to young girls during
their formative years, men
working directly with girls are
asked to serve as part of a
leadership team that includes
women. For information or to
volunteer, call 921-5358 Ext.
249 (bilingual) in Sarasota or
Manatee counties, or toll free
at (800) 232-4475 Ext. 249.
Girl Scouts of.Gulfcoast
Florida, Inc. serves more than
9,600 girls in Manatee, Sara-
sota, Charlotte, DeSoto, Lee,
Collier and half of Hendry
counties.

Kasprowicz said. "Some artists
do that to their work but I do
not think it does justice to it"
Several statue committee
members oversaw the instal-
lation.
"I enjoy seeing profession-
als at work," said George Mc-
Lean, past president of the
Venice Historical Society. "He
put all kinds of blankets by
the neck."


McLean-has acted as chair
of the committee since Bol-
duc moved to Germany
where he is a copy editor and
reporter for Automotive News
Europe.
Like Gebel-Williams was in
life, the completed bronze
statue is stunning. The gran-
ite base, which will be framed
with cement posts and chain
and accented with simple


landscaping, adds an addi-
tional 3 feet to the nearly 8-
foot-tall statue.
"I have really enjoyed
working on this," Kasprowicz
has said several times. "Now I
have a lot of work to do be-
cause I put a lot on hold for
the sculpture work around
the house.
"The sculpture came out as I
expected but it was more work


than I expected because I had
never done a cape that big.
"It is the most time I have
spent on one piece ever. The
maquette took more than a
month because of all the ap-
provals and then the first one
had to be redone from scratch.
That was probably the main
reason for the delays."
Still to be installed are the
,posts and chain that will sur-


round the statue's base plus
landscaping. The official un-
veiling is being planned for
Monday Dec. 5.
"It is a hard and sentimen-
tal moment to see this now
four years after his passing,"
Gebel said.
SIt is a sentimental moment
for Venice too. Its most fa-
mous resident has returned
- this time forever.

SOCIAL COLUMNIST



Music 101

Weslsey John Schumacher,
conductor and musical direc-
tor of the Venice Symphony
and Jean Peters, Executive
director, always look for ways
to improve the organization.
The group's summer music
camp introduces teachers and
young aspiring musicians in a
friendly way to share the joy of
music.
"Did you get some sound
out of the trumpet last night,"
Jamie Marshall asked young
Gabrielle Unger on the second
day of camp. Gabrielle smiled
as he nodded the mission was
accomplished. The Epiphany
Cathedral fourth-grade stu-
dent listened to the teacher's
instructions and his jokes.
Penny Dunckley talked to
her group of budding violin-
ists about positions and pos-
ture. Everyone seemed to be
having fun learning and expe-
riencing dreams coming true.
Most regulars at the Venice
Symphony concerts are going
through a little withdrawal this
summer. They are remember-
ing the final pops concert of
the season, which left them
believing they experienced a
momentous musical event in
Venice.
Music director Wesley John
Schumacher brought together
members of the symphony
along with Gary Reinstrom,
Johanna Fincher and Sharon
Scott for an enchanted even-
ing and a musical trip around
the world.
The symphony season
starts again in December and
season tickets or individual
concert tickets make a perfect
gift. You may want to call
488-1010 now to reserve be-
cause once the snowbirds
come back most concerts are
sold out.
You can also contact the
symphony at or thevenicesym
phony.org.

Three cheers and congratu-
lations to Jac Slight, editor of
Harmo-Notes, the Lemon Bay
Chord Company's newsletter,
for receiving an individual
award in the Sunshine District
Bulletin Editor of the year con-
test.
The Lemon Bay Chord
Company barbershop chorus
received more awards than
any chapter at the Sunshine
District's Spring convention.
The group contributed more
that $10,000 to various chari-
ties.
President of the group, Dick
Court, and treasurer, Jack
Sturrock invite men interested
in singing to call 493-6417 for
information.

The Arts and Cultural
Alliance welcomes its new
board for the year. Members
are Katherine Zauner, Erika
Williams, Liana Martin, Terry
Brawley, Lynn Moseley, Yvon-
ne Pinkerton, Walter Yovaish,
Paul Borgmann, John Chap-
man, Eric Watters, Tracey Vivi-
ano and Famsley Peters. Lynn
is president of the group.
Former president Bonnie
Kaiser deserves a huge bravo
and three cheers for her lead-
ership.

The special person of this
week is Jamie Marshall. This

bone with the Venice Sympho-
ny. By day, he teaches at St.
Stevens Elementary School.
