Lights leading turtles astray


Aithe time for turtle
hatchlings to make
their appearance draws
closer, keeping light off
the beach becomes
more important.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Despite city of Venice light-
ing' ordinances designed to
protect sea turtles .during
their nesting season, false
crawls and turtle disorienta-
tions resulting in needless sea
turtle deaths continue to
occur.
"We have had continual
problems with Sharky's (a
restaurant at the Venice
Municipal Fishing Pier) over
the years and it continues,"
Mote Marine Laboratory Sea
Turtle Conservation and Re-
search Intern/Volunteer Co-
ordinator Paula Clark said.
"There is a lighting ordinance
in Venice to handle these
issues, but as far as we know,
it is not being enforced. We
are also not aware of any
lighting inspections that have
been performed this season."
Venice Code Enforcement
Office John Patek is the man
in charge of such patrols.
"Mike Pachota ione of dithe
owners of Sharky'si was out of
town, but I spoke to one of his
employees yesterday." Patek
said Thursday. "I told her
about the lighting problems.
When I do my next check, if
they are not in compliance, I
will issue a notice of viola-
tion."
Patek said he had recently
issued notices to two condo-
miniums at the beach and
that both are now in compli-
ance.

problem about lights related

Good morning, Gondolier

School security monitors
are pretty in yellow pretty-
good targets, they said.
"They lit us up like bill-
boards," one retired police
officer now a Venice High
School security monitor
reportedly said.
The county's campus secu-
rity personnel will be wearing
canary yellow shirts and blue
pants, long or short, their
choice.
"I had a couple of ex-nili-
tary guys tell me they would-
n't wear yellow and not carry a
weapon," one campus moni-
tor said. "We're sitting ducks."
School security monitors
are licensed by the state but
do not carn' weapons.
The men and women who
have to wear the yellow said
their jobs will be harder and
less effective in stopping
criminal activity.
They said they can be spot-
ted by criminals on campus
before they spot the crimJi-
nals.
The security monitors said


they don't have a problem
with uniforms, only bright
yellow ones. They said mak-
ing them stand out like sore
thumbs by wearing yellow
shirts and caps is not only
stupid, it is life-threatening to
them.
'I couldn't care less
what color they are'
Yellow was decided after a
security audit in 2003, Bob
Earley, an associate Sarasota
County school superinten-
dent, said.
"In hindsight, you (security.
monitors) should probably
have had more involvement
in the color selection." Earley
told the county's 60 campus
security monitors Thursday.
"Having said that, the issue of
uniform color is non-nego-
tiable. I couldn't care less
what color they are."
Earley said the school
board worked with die Sara-
sota County Sheriff's Office to
help find the best color.
The experts said that yel-
low is the most universally ac-
cepted security color for
identification purposes, ac-


cording to Earley.
"We educators have two
primary objectives," Earley
said. "To educate our stu-
dents and keep them safe. We
believe that a visible deterrent
is the best way to ensure our
students' safety."
Earley said the yellow color
will also make it easier for
parents and visitors who
come on campus to identify
security personnel.
"I do not have a law en-
forcement background," Earl-
ey said, "but my intuiidon tells
me there may be a place for
covert operations on campus
(where security monitors
blend in), but overall, we
need them to be visible."
Sarasota County School
Board Security Director Law-
rence J. Leon said he also sup-
ports the idea of wearing uni-
forms.
"It doesn't matter if they
are red, green or purple," he
said. "It is one way that these
professionals can identify
themselves to die public."
A I enice Gondolier Sun re-
porter asked Leon if he would
wear a yellow shirt as a securi -
ty aide.
"I would wear the uniform
of the day," he said, "whatever
that was."


SUNI PHOTO ILLUSTRATION By JEFF TAVARES
School security aides on Sarasota County campuses have been
issued yellow shirts, windbreakers and caps to wear, despite
their concern that the bright clothing will inhibit their ability
to do their job.

Strange fish parade



seen in Englewood


Experts don't have an explanation
for the phenomenon but, as usual,


red tide is a possible culp


BY GAVIN OFF
AND STEPHEN BAUMANN
STAFFWRITERS

A bizarre freeway of fish
swimming by the thousands
along the shore of Englewood
Beach Thursday morning left
crowds of beach-goers agog
and marine biologists be-
wildered.
"I've lived here for 10 years,
and I've never seen anything
like this. It's incredible," said
Bob Ricci of Englewood.
Beach-goers reported that
a wide variety of sea creatures
came swimining south in a
narrow band close to the
beach at mid-morning.
Included in the swarm
were clouds of shrimp, crabs,
grouper, snapper, red fish
and flounder. They were
joined by more usual species,
including sea robins, needle-
fish and eels.
Ten-year Manasota 'Key
resident Nick Neidlinger spot-
ted the commotion from his
condominium shortly before
9 a.m.
The fish were moving in a
narrow band in about 18
inches of water, he said. They
were headed south and, so
far as he could tell, the moving
mass of sea life stretched a
mile long.
"We're talking thousands
and thousands of them,"
Neidlinger said. "It was so
thick we couldn't walk out."
Some fish washed ashore
on the gulf's small waves,
he said. The stranded fish
flipped and struggled until
they flopped back into the
water to rejoin the piscatorial
parade south.


)rit.


"There were blue crabs the
size of a dinner plate,"
Neidlinger said. "You name
the species of fish and they
were there."
Neidlinger said more than
.100 pelicans bombarded the
fish, but he saw no sharks or
other predators, nor did he
detect any signs of red tide.
He said all the species
"were swimming amongst
each other. They weren't
attacking each other."
Neidlinger added, "I have
never seen anything like that
in my life. This was not a fish
kill."
Red tide to blame?
Beach-goers were grabbing
crabs and fish as they swam
by Thursday. One observer
thought the fish might have
been weakened by some sort
of toxin perhaps red tide
because they could be
scooped up easily by people.
The event lasted until late
morning, although the parade
had thinned out by 11 a.m.,
A few scientists contacted
Thursday were surprised to
hear of ihe unusual fish be-
havior in Englewood that
morning. It was not typical
schooling, they said. because
many varied species were
involved.
Scientists are reluctant -
usually by nature and always
by training to speculate
about the causes of natural
phenomena without the ben-
efit of observation and con-
crete data. However, they did
offer some broad possibilities
for what they agreed was a
highly unusual event, one
they had never encountered


before.
It might have been preda-
tor avoidance, said one, but
that was unlikely since there
were no signs of predators
and the species were varied.
The gulf waters have cur-
rents that might have swept
many fish along in an unus-
ual pattern, one speculated.
Or it could have been
caused by red tide that could
not be detected by beach-
goers.
Dr. Richard Pierce, director
of ectotoxicology at the Mote
Marine Laboratory in Sara-
sota, said he had discussed the
occurrence with Dr. Cindy
Heil, the director of biotoxin
research at the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission in St. Petersburg, after
a reporter's phone call Thurs-
day.
"We agree this could be
that they.were trying to get
away from red tide, maybe
offshore or in the deeper
parts offshore," Pierce said.
He said red tide flows in
higher or lower concentra-
tions at various levels of the
gulf. It also follows currents,
which move at varying lev els
and speeds.
"Sometimes, we have
found it in higher concen-
tration along the bottom. This
could be what you're looking
at," Pierce said.
Maybes and what-ifs
Red tide has been linger-
ing in the gulf for the past
couple of months, but it has
been detected primarily in an-
area stretching from northern
Sarasota County north to
Hernando County.
It's possible, Pierce said,.
that a stealth red tide.could
be moving south, flowing
with an offshore current
along the bottom, "and they're
moving ahead of it."

.UIi PHO'iC B, JO1'IATHAIJ FFEDV
A blue crab, one of thousands, seen on Englewood Beach Thursday morning as a multitude of;
marine life passed within feet of the shoreline. k


Key to that theory is that
the fish reported Thursday
included many boriom feed-
ers.
"Sea robins, flounder, and.
grouper are indications that
something is moving along
the bottom," Pierce said.
"Unfortunately, this might
be a phenomenon of red
tide creeping in, but we'll
have to wait until we get


.some samples," he said.
Mlote recently installed
two red tide detectors in
Boca Grande, and Pierce said
there was some indication
Thursday that red tide might
have been moving in that
direction.
But, he added, it was all
simply speculation until tests
could be conducted.
"We just don't know what's


.happening. That's a, lot of
maybes and what-ifs.
"I know the state is work-
ing on that and some other
reports, so maybe by next
week we'll have some ans-
wers," he said.

"We know what a popular
attraction this is for families
and vacationers who visit a
similar facility in Sarasota
near Marina Jacks and we are
going to bring it to Nokomis,"
said Capt. Gary Howland of,
Nokomis.
"This is becoming a reality.

opening, which is planned for
about five weeks Toomer is
having T-shirts printed with
his slogan, REALLY deep sea

A sign is being designed by
the new association, which
will feature each charter boat


company operating from the
facility with details of its facil-

In addition, Howland is ex-
pecting to have a retractable
fish-hanging rack where
family photographs can be
taken complete with the fish
caught on the charters.


The Nokomis Charter Boat

use of charter boats, with no
mooring of public boats and
no permanent mooring per-

Council to approve new fire station


Approval of the architect's contract Tuesday
is the next step toward giving fire station No. 3
a permanent home along Laurel Road.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

The dream of Venice fire
chiefs will become a reality
within the next 18-24 months:
a permanent fire and EMS
station on Laurel Road to
serve North
Venice.
Venice City
Council will
consider a
$157,000 bid "I
to design a .
new fire sta-
tion along ~, 9;
Laurel Road,
finally giving Johnson
the para-
medics and firefighters at
Station No. 3 a'permanent
home.
With, approval, BMK Arch-
itects will plan and design
the 12,000-square-foot facility
with four bays for emergency
vehicles.
"Station 3 has been a
dream of fire chiefs here for
many years," Venice Fire Chief
Mike Johnson said. "They've
had the temporary facility
(at the Eastside Wastewater
Treatment Plant) for two-and-
a-half years now. ... They're
ready to move. We've been
talking about it. for many
years, and it's finally happen-
ing."


Fire Station No. 3 will be
on Laurel Road just east of the
main entrance to Venetian
Golf & River Club.
The city was given the .4
acres of land by J&J Homes
in January as part of a settle-
ment with the private prop-
erty owner, the city, and the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency over code viola-
tions at the FEMA trailer park.
Construction is expected to
take a year, according to the
contract. Design and permit-
ting may take six or more
months, Johnson said.
The new fire station will:
Be 12,000 square feet, with
four vehicle bays and public
meeting rooms.
House both city firefight-
ers and Sarasota County EMS
responders.
Be two. stories tall with
two separate wings.
Meet hurricane shelter
standards for city staff and
family members.
Have sewer utilities pro-
vided by Sarasota County and
drinking water by the city.
Sewage system will include a
lift station, FDEP permitting
and design of off-site service
upgrades for extension to the
site.
City council members will
vote on the contract during
their regular meeting at 1:30


p.m. Tuesday.
Other agenda items
Also listed on Tuesday's
agenda:
Fire and rescue data -
Johnson will lead a presenta-
tion recapping firefighter and
EMS calls dating back to 1999.
The number of calls to Venice
Fire Department has in-
creased every year since 1999.
Part of this report was spark-
ed by resident complaints
about why full-size fire
engines appear to be answer-
ing every medical call and
whether that is cost effective.
Higher land fees The
Venice Planning Department
and planning commission
have recommended changes
in wording and fee amounts
charged for subdivision and
plat applications. Applications
for preliminary plat approvals
for lots smaller than a half-
acre, for example, would now
cost $250 plus $5 for each lot.
This is the first reading by
council.
Meter reader costs City
council approved raising the
cost for new water meters to
be installed in order to cover
the cost of switching to radio-
controlled meter-reader ma-
chines. So far, these higher
tap fees have generated
$123,000. Council will be ask-
ed to approve transferring
$50,000 from that account to
make up a negative balance
in the utilities department
construction account.

Legal process must be protected


The city attorney keeps his guard up
against violating or even the appearance
of violating state laws on rezoning petitions.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Don't ask City Attorney
Bob Anderson his opinion on
Waterford Companies want-
ing to create an entirely new
zoning district and build
seven-story buildings on the
island. He won't give one to
you.
Nor has Anderson offered
an opinion on the project in
any public sessions or public
records documents.
However, Venice's top legal
advisor will offer his opinion
on the legal process surround-
ing approval or denial of the
proposed Waterfront Business
District and the zoning appli-
cation on file with the city:
Do not mess around with the
quasi-judicial process or rules
against "ex parte" communi-
cations.
Anderson will give council
members a review of these
state laws at Tuesday's city
council meeting, and many
assume the topic of Water-
ford's redevelopment project
will come up.
"I acknowledge I'm being
cautious," Anderson said.
"I've always characterized my
opinion on this as a cautious
one.
"But one of the things I
want to guard against, what-
ever the end result is, I don't
want to see us in court de-
fending the process we used
against attacks we did it
wrong. ... It's not the city
attorney's job to wade into
the merits (of Waterford's
project). That's the city man-
ager and planning and coun-


cil's job. My job is to make
sure the process is correct."
On hold
The debate on how the
Venice Planning Commission
and city coun-
cil members
should act has
been swirling
ever since
Mike Miller,
president of
Waterford.
Companies,
filed the pro-
posed, new Anderson
zoning district
and the rezoning application
at the same time. Quasi-judi-
cial rules apply to the rezoning
application, but not the pro-
posed zoning district.
Anderson, City Manager
Marty Black and Planning
and Zoning Director Tom
Slaughter all agreed to put the
rezoning request application
on hold until council issues a
final vote on the zoning dis-
trict request.
However, problems have
erupted with how to consider
the, proposed zoning law
change without talking about
the actual project. If this zon-
ing district is created, it could
be applied nearly anywhere
within city limits.
The side of caution
City hall has been flooded
with negative e-mails the past
several weeks from residents
opposed to Miller's develop-
ment. Most of their objections
are related to building heights,
potential traffic impacts, lack
of parking and losing Venice's


quaint, downtown feel.
Anderson is encouraging
council and planning com-
mission to limit their discus-
sions to public meetings. In
his opinion, this would avoid
even the "appearance" of vio-
lating laws.
No person anti-growth
opponents or Waterford Com-
panies representatives can
toss out accusations of ex
parte communications if
everything happens on the
record in public sessions,
Anderson said.
The city attorney fears that
walking the tightrope of out-
side discussions on the law
change without ever men-
tioning Miller's proposal
opens the door for legal chal-
lenges.
"It would be very difficult
to talk about one without
talking about the other,"
Anderson said. "So if you have
"I acknowledge I'm
being cautious.
I've always
characterized my
opinion on this
as a cautious one."
City Attorney Bob Anderson

to avoid ex parties on one,
you might as well err on the
side of caution and avoid ex
parties on both. ... Why cut it
that close, because if you
make a mistake, we'll get a
legal challenge. If you just
don't have ex parte communi-
cations regarding either one,
then you have not hada legal
violation."

Literacy coaches


expected to bring up


lagging test scores


School officials are expecting to see results
in this year's FCAT result now that
all schools will have the specialized instructors.


CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


Many Sarasota County
School District officials be-
lieve students' math and
reading testing scores are not
what they should be.
The disappointing results
of the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Tests brought
forth the question of what is
really being done to help stu-
dents.
Although students are not
doing poorly, they are not
improving at the rate that the
board had hoped when the
one-mill school property tax
referendum passed three
years ago.
"We continue to be less
satisfied with our learning
gain scores. Maintaining high
levels of student performance
is a challenge, as well as im-
proving the performance of
students achieving below
level," Lori White, assistant
superintendent, said in an
e-mail interview. "However,
we are constantly looking at
ways to improve those scores."


Comprehension
White said there is hope
coming this school year in the
form of additional literacy
coaches.
Although middle and high
schools already have a year
of experience with these new
coaches, this school year,
will be the first that literacy
coaches, as well as data
coaches, will be in every
school in the county.
The coaches will work
with teachers to improve read-
ing instruction and monitor
student progress. This will be
a way to detect and diagnose
reading difficulties in stu-
dents.
"(The coaches) have been
given training on the school's
reading program and they
work with classroom teachers
to assess each child's skills in
reading and writing and help
the classroom teacher plan
lessons to the child's individ-
ual needs," said Barry Dubin,
executive director of the
Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association.
More reading teachers


have also been added to the
middle and high schools.
Professional training and de-
velopment will be given to
the literacy coaches along
with reading teachers, assis-
tant principals and principals.
"The professional develop-
ment will focus on ways to
monitor student progress in
reading and research-based
strategies for teaching tead-
ing at each grade level,"
White said.
Board member Laura Ben-
son has high hopes for this
program.
"I believe that we are giv-
ing our teachers many op-
portunities to help students
achieve greater reading com-
prehension ... ," Benson said
in an e-mail interview.
Benson's interest in school
improvement goes beyond
her role as a board member.
"My expectations are that
the classroom experience
should change and as a par-
ent, taxpayer and school
board member I am asking to
see those changes happen."
Positive results
Venice High School adopt-
ed this new literacy program
last year. Candy Millington,
principal of VHS, believes
that there is great need for


programs like this.
"We have brand new and
young teachers who need
additional support," Milling-
ton said. "Many of our Eng-
lish teachers at the high
school are not trained spe-
cifically in reading instruc-
tion."
Millington is thrilled with
the new program and the
school's new literacy coach,
Suzanne Krill, and believes


the results will be evident
come FCAT time.
"FCATs are getting harder,"
Millington said, "(Krill's) posi-
tion is invaluable."
Possible cuts?
Because the one-mill tax
referendum expires if it is not
renewed in March, there is a
chance programs like this
maybe cut.
School staff members and


school board workers hope
that these coaches are not
one of the helpful additions:
to be cut from the budget.
"Gary Norris has stressed
the importance of renewing
the referendum," Suzanne
Naiman, a Sarasota County
reading program specialist,
said. "(If it doesn't pass) there
could be some cuts; but we
don't know where they are
going to be."

of the donors who have con-
tributed more than $5 million
toward the project to create a
bike path along the island and
mainland sides of the In-
tracoastal Waterway.
That's not to say VABI no
longer needs donations.
There are future projects and
enhancements to the bike
path initiative that still need
help.
"Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, Sara-
sota County (government)
and the city (ofVenice) and so
many others have all been
great ... A lot of things are
happening right now," Red-
mond said. "We're just trying
'to get the infrastructure
down, the sidewalks. All the
:parks and benches will come
for years. This is truly a com-
munity project. Nobody has
been against this project."
Redmond will give a pre-
sentation to Vernice City
,Council at its 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday meeting to recap
where VABI is with the bike
path project. The city has
contributed about $1.2 mil-
lion over the past six years
toward the project in either
direct funding or services,
according to City Manager
Marty Black.

10-mile bike path
VABI was created in 1990
by the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce to launch beau-
tification efforts along U.S. 41
in Venice. By 1993, the non-
profit organization adopted
the idea of a linear park along
the Intracoasial Waterway
and has been working toward
that ever since.
More than half of the 10-
mile concrete bike trail is fin-
ished, and almost every re-
maining project is in the
active planning stages.
Redmond offered this


recap of ongoing projects,
which he will highlight at
Tuesday's council meeting:
City Engineer Nancy
Woodley is working to hire an
engineer to design the section
of bike path from Shamrock
Park to the Circus Bridge.
VABI hopes to be pouring
concrete by the end of the
year.
Monty Andrews is work-
ing with the contractor to
start pouring concrete on
Monday from the Venice
Avenue Bridge down to the
Circus Bridge. Estimated fin-
ish by the end of August.
Major funding at about
$600,000 for this portion
came from GCCFV city of
Venice and Catiln Foun-
dation.
VABI will recommend the
former chamber of com-
merce building now owned
by the city, be renamed
Venetian Trailhead. Once ren-
ovated, the building will con-
tain offices for VABI, city stor-
age, visitor information and
public restrooms. The city will
cover utility costs and Sara-
sota County is to maintain the
exterior and restrooms.
Behind the Waterfront
condominium towers, con-
crete is being poured for the
path ending at the old cham-
ber building. This section of
the bike path will not open for
about another year, when
Waterfront's third 105-foot
tower is built. "For safety is-
sues, we're going to keep it
closed until the (construc-
tion) crane leaves the proper-
ty. We don't want anything
falling on them," said Red-
mond, who now works for
Waterford Companies after
working for Sarasota County
Parks and Recreation.
At Venice Avenue Bridge,
the county is reviewing a con-
tract to install wheelchair


ramps and stairs that will
connect to the bike path.
Down by Marine Max
along U.S. 41 Business,
WCIND and Sarasota County
commissioners have verbally
agreed to allow the path to go
across WCIND property to
Darby Buick's property line.
The agreement is waiting for a
survey by the project engi-
neer. "Once we get that survey
in, we think that will go really
fast and both boards (county
and WCIND) will approve it,"
Redmond said.
Between Darby Buick and
Bellagio residential develop-
ment, there is a verbal agree-
ment to go across the proper-
ty. This section will extend to
U.S. 41 Business. This portion
is estimated at $300,000, pro-
vided by GCCFV grants. "We
could not have done that
without Darby Buick's agree-
ment to give us that space,".
Redmond said.
At Caspersen Beach Park,


many new plants are being
put in by volunteers. The
vehicle bridge leading to the
park will be replaced and
widened by 12 feet. Sarasota
County is paying for this pro-
ject, and it should be finished
in about a year.
Redmond saidVABI is still
searching for the money to
build the bike path that will
extend from the new bridge
to Caspersen Beach.

South Harbor
Drive worries
Pedestrian and bicycle
lane improvements along
South Harbor Drive is the
next major project. Once Har-
bor Drive leaves the southern
city limits for the county, right
around Lake Venice Golf
Club, the road turns into a
narrow two lanes surrounded
by undeveloped habitat with
barely enough room for two
cars.
However, there is no fund-

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
ANNEXATION REQUEST

Notice is hereby given that the City of Venice Planning Commission will
hold a public hearing on Tuesday, August 16, 2005 at 1:30 P.M. in the
Council Chambers, City Hall, 401 West Venice Avenue, Venice, Florida, to
consider the following:

Annexation Request No. 03-11AN
394.69 V Acres
Located on East Laurel Road
Parcel Identification Nos. 0391-00-1000, 0392-00-4000

Any person who decides to appeal any decision of the Venice Planning
Commission with respect to any matter considered at this meeting will need
a record of the proceedings and, for such purpose, may need to ensure that
a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the
testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.

All interested parties are invited to appear and be heard. Details are
available for public inspection ait he Planning and Zoning Department, 401
West Venice Avenue, Venice, Florida. % written comments filed with the
Commission will be heard and considered. The said public hearing may be

ing or timeline, andVABI is still
trying to get county and city
government officials in the
same room to talk about it.
Besides putting in bicycle
lanes or sidewalks, the county
and city are debating on the
need for water and sewage
lines to be extended down to
Caspersen Beach Park.,
A portion of the grants that
paid for Caspersen Park
required that public rest-
rooms be installed. Sarasota
County must decide whether
it wants to put in a septic sys-
tem or allow city utility lines
be laid out along the most
undisturbed section of Venice
island.
Redmond is staying opti-
mistic something can be


worked out. Increased traffic
and speeding cars are making
this stretch of road unsafe for
pedestrians and bicyclists
who share Harbor Drive.
"They're talking about
what to do along Harbor
Drive to make it safe for pe-
destrians and bikers," Red-
mond said. "With all the cars
and bikes and pedestrians, it's
becoming a safety concern.
... It is a nightmare (working
out a deal). All we know is it is
an issue. We just have to sit
down and talk about it. It's still
years away, but it'll always be
years away until we sit down
and start talking."

TURTLES from page 1 A
or the monobuoy.
City of Venice Public In-
formation Officer Pam John-
son said the problem was
traced to one piece of equip-
ment used on the beach.
"That problem has been
solved," Johnson said. "We
met about it yesterday after-
noon and they were able to
do something to it so that the
light will not be directed onto
the beach."
Lights at Sharky's have the
potential to be a bigger prob-
lem this year because of the
beach renourishment pro-
ject.
"Unfortunately, the area
we had to relocate to is south
of both locations," Clark said.
"We hope to be able to relo-
cate nests up to the north end
shortly."
'Any' means any
Turtle nests made in the
renourishment area have
been moved south to the
Caspersen Beach area, below
Sharky's. When the hatchlings
emerge from those nests this
month and next month, some
may be misdirected by stray
lights from the- restaurant
unless those lights are
curbed.
Also posing a threat to
hatchlings are artificial lights
such as those from cars on the
road along the beach or cars
parking near the beach, flash
lights or light generated by
flash photography. Light from
cigarette lighters or from bon-
fires (illegal at the beach) also
pose problems for turtles.
According to Sec. 106-31
definitions of Beach Area
Outdoor Lighting Restrictions
for Protection of Sea Turtles,
in the Venice City Code, "arti-
ficial light" means any source
of light emanating from a
manmade device, including
but not limited to incandes-
cent mercury vapor, metal
halide or sodium lamps,
flashlights, spotlights, street-
lights, vehicular lights and
construction or security
lights.
"Beach" means that area,

line of the Gulf of Mexico and
the inshore grass line, boul-
ders or seawall.
Punishment for violations
that go uncorrected is to be
dispensed in accordance with
the provisions regarding the
enforcement of ordinances
contained in this code.
Full moon not required
As the turtle season nears
its end, hatchlings will
emerge from their nests late
at night, heading for the light
and away from dark shadows
such as shore vegetation, an
inborn tendency. Ideally the
only light they will see will be
moonlight reflected on the
water, guiding them into the
sea. Residents and visitors
can help by shielding lights so
that they do not shine on the
beach at night.
It is a myth that the hatch-
lings only emerge on nights
when the moon is full. During
August and early September,
hatchlings might emerge
almost nightly from the 150 or
so nests along the Venice
beaches. The hatchlings wait
until the sand surface cools.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
Division of Marine Resources,
suggests that hatchlingg sea
turtles found wandering away
from the gulf should be taken
to a darkened portion of the
beach and allowed to walk
intothe surf on their own."
Disorientations or. injured
turtles should be reported to,
the Mote sea turtle line at 388-
4331 or to the Florida DEP's
west coast office at (813) 896-
8626 or the Florida Marine
Patrol at (800) DIAL-FMP
during regular business
hours.
Should you see a nest filled
with empty shells, leave it
alone. Each morning, permit-
ted Mote volunteers walk the
beaches, looking for such
nests, which they inventory
and check for hatchlings that
may not have escaped the
nest.

Lakey made his living in the r


BY CHRIS PORTER

RAY SINIBALDI
SPORTS COLUMNIST



Gone


too soon

On Thursday afternoon,
the family and friends of Pam
Witte gathered at the Epip-
hany Cathedral to bid fare-
well. They gathered to mourn,
they gathered to laugh, they
gathered to weep.
Pam succumbed to a dec-
ade-long, heroic battle with
cancer on July 28, leaving her
husband, Gregg; her son,
Shawn; her daughter, Dani-
elle; and a grateful commun-
ity.
Always willing to give, Pam
became entrenched in her'
community. Whether it was
Girl Scouts, softball, Cotillion,
Little League or anything and
everything in between, she
was always willing to lend a
hand. -A blithe and gentle
spirit, with a disarming smile,
"just let me know what you
need me to do" were words
she lived by.
Pam's journey into the
community began at the
Epiphany school, and while
there she met two other
moms whose boys were in the
same class as her son Shawn.
They were Barb LaNinfa and
Cathie Nlathews.
Through the blood, sweat
and tears of adolescence, they
lent their support. Through
the thrills of victory and the
agonies of defeat, they offered
encouragement. Through the
love that only mothers can
know, they guided their boys
toward manhood.
On Feb. 23, 2001, these
three moms stood proudly as
the Venice High School base-
ball field was dedicated and
.their three boys were on the
field. Their pride was in their
boys, but the fact is that these
three were among the "Foun-
ding Mothers" of the Venice
High School baseball field and
the Diamond Boosters Club.
Before there was any
semblance of a concession
stand, Cathie Mathews would
lug all necessities to and
from the field to set up what
was lovingly called "Mrs.
Mathews' Kitchen."
When the fledgling boost-
ers club was organizing and,
deciding ways to raise funds,
Barb LaNinfa took the bull by
the horns and chaired the golf
tournament committee. Every
year saw the event grow.
When the boosters club
was looking for its first secre-
tary, Pam Witte stepped for-
ward to organize and coordi-
nate tasks. The program be-
came her baby.
Each of these wonderful
wom-en was taken from us by
the ravages of that insidious
disease, cancer: Cathie in July'
2002, Barb in December 2004
and Pam just days ago. They
leave a legacy of community
involvement that we all would
do well to aspire to.
In eulogizing Pam on
Thursday, her close friend
Donna Bradley said that Pam,
Cathie and Barb were proba-
bly already busy organizing a
booster club for the angels.
I envision Barb and Cathie
sitting around a table as a
door opens and Pam enters,
flashing her smile. With a
twinkle in her eye, she pulls
up a chair.
"We've been waiting for
you" they say. "We've -orga-
nized a booster club for our
baseball team and we need
you." ,
"Just let me know what
you need me to do" she replies
as she sits.


John Lakey is still in the
fight. He's battling a perenni-
ally stiff neck and other mal-
adies that come with the
approach of a 90th birthday.
To see the set of his white-
bearded jaw, Lakey is giving
it his all. But a closer look at
the spry, soft-spoken gentle-
man. reveals a cauliflowered
left ear, a telltale sign that
this isn't Lakey's first battle.
You have, to go about five
decades back to get the story.
That was.when John Lakey
was known as Jack Carter, a
professional wrestler who
crisscrossed the United
States, making his living in
the big cities and small towns
of his adopted country.
"I always wanted to travel
and see the United States,"
Lakey says in a clear, soft
voice, with just a hint of the
accent of his native New
Zealand.
Lakey did get to travel -
maybe more than he bar-
gained for. But with the years
on the road and the roar of the
crowd behind him, he now
lives the quiet life in Village of
Holiday Lakes, a neat manu-
factured home community
between Rotonda and Port
Charlotte. His home is a few
streets 'from his daughter's,


tured to 45 of the 48 contigu
ous states. He spent much o
his career wrestling in the
west, from Oregon and Cal
ifornia to Idaho and Utah
He once held the Inter
Mountain Junior Heavy
weight Championship. "
used the pile driver a lot, tha
was a favorite," he said.
Not all of the details arn
fresh these days, but many
memories stand out.
"Probably the most his
toric match I ever had wa
with Dean Denton in Texas,'
said Lakey, recalling his time
based in Amarillo. "He wa
very well-known and a ver
good wrestler. We had a 60
minute match with no falls
and then came back nex
week and wrestled 90' min
utes. He beat me two out o
three falls. He had a lot o
experience on me. I ha(
youth."
It was during Lakey's hey
day in Texas that his daughter
now Karen Lakey McCay, wa
born. She had no time to ge
to know Amarillo, since the
family packed up and quickly!
moved from town to towi
before finally settling dowi
in Chicago. It was there Lake.
invested his wrestling money
and bought a gas station an(
put down roots. Although he
set up shop, Lakey had no
intention of quitting the busi

ness. He wrestled for years in
and out of the Chicago area,
making long drives, mostly
by himself, to Detroit, St.
Louis and countless towns in
between.
The small screen
Professional wrestling was
very different in' those days
than it is today, and Lakey is
one of the few wrestlers still
around who can remember
what changed things the
most television.
"With the advent of TV, it
popularized the sport same
as it popularized the other
sports. They. created their
own market. The town of
origin, like Chicago, would
go out to St. Louis, or Toledo,
(or) Cleveland."
Before TV, wrestlers or
promoters. had to go, into
town in advance and get an
interview with a newspaper
reporter or on the radio in
order to generate publicity
and fill the seats. When TV
arrived in a market, there
were few competing shows
on the air and wrestling
quickly became a hit.
Lakey spent most of his
career as a journeyman
Wrestler, meaning he would
travel from territory to terri-
tory, working a few weeks or
months.
"The crux of the whole
thing "was you bring in out-
of-town talent to go against
the hometown heroes," he
explained. When youP stint
was over, you moved over to
the next territory.
Each promotion had its
own nuances, but traveling
to matches was a constant

Heavyweight title.


- at least as important as the
work in the ring, and much
more time-consuming.
"In Texas we had about a
2,000-mile hop in a week. In,
Chicago, it might be 500 or
600 miles."
There was no time for
working out or lifting weights;
you stayed in condition by
wrestling almost every night.,
Wrestlers arrived at an arena
or armory .or gym, changed
into their gear, limbered up
and went to work.
"You'd be tired or semi-
tired from the night before,'
the ride into town. Not much
enthusiasm to spare," Lakey'
recalled. "But you had to be a.
trooper. Like an actor, you
sometimes didn't feel like
putting on a performance,
but you went out there and
did a good job."
Wrestling the giants
Lakey worked through the
'50s with some of the men
who are considered the giants.
of the sport, guys like the
original "Nature Boy" Buddy
Rodgers, "Gorgeous" George,
future promoters like Dory
Funk Sr., "Cowboy" Luttrell
and Verne Gagne, and long-
time world champ Lou Thesz.
His friend, Frank Hickey,
pioneered the wearing of a
mask in the ring. He worked
with Angelo Poffo, whose
son Randy is still a star in the


business as "Macho Man"
Randy Savage, and Bob Orton
Sr., whose grandson, Randy
Orton is a rising star in the
WWE.
Does he ever watch the'
current product? Not much,
he explains, not on purpose,
anyway. ("You should hear
what he says," his daughter
laughs.)
A lot has changed. In the
old days, Lakey explained,
your success as a wrestler
was based "more on ability-
the publicity scheme was
not as good as it is today.
Now they center in on some-
thing and build -somebody
overnight."
"I haven't really studied it.
Most of them are gesturing
to some extent. Most are
bodybuilders, weightlifters.
They've got wonderful bodies
they've worked hard on and
they're cashing in on them.
Wrestling ability, that's de-
batable."
The wrestlers have gotten
bigger, too. "lWhen I was in
the business, a 200-210-
pound man was a pretty for-
midable object. Now, they go
310, 410, and the action goes
accordingly."
Lakey said his size, 5 feet
10 inches and about 210 dur-
ing his career about the
same size as Gorgeous
George would probably
not be feasible in the business


The sacrifices I make


Ever done something for
love? .I don't mean sending
flowers to your wife, girlfriend
or significant other. I mean
real sacrifice here. A true act
of selflessness.
Well, I'm gonna do that
this weekend. My wife has
asked me to do something
for her. It's not an easy task
but I'm going to give it my
all.
Michele, or as I like to call
her, the next ex-Mrs. Lamond,
has something she needs to
do. I have no idea what it is.
She has ordered me to play
golf this weekend. The whole
weekend. Saturday and Sun-
day. She needs me-out of the
house.
I love the humble hut and
don't really like having to be
away from it that long, but
you know, anything for her.
Here's the secret. Come
closer so she can't hear us. I
just got a demo driver that I'm
dying to hit, but I'm not
telling her that. So, I'll go to
the golf course and play, and
I'll love it, unless I play like a
schmuck; because some-
times you have to do things
that you would really rather
not. Huh?
We've already spoken
about my ex-wife, who shall

hereinafter be referred to as
the plaintiff. She never asked
me to go play golf because
she had something to do. In
fact, it was easier to cross
Checkpoint Charlie than to
even bring up golf.
A tournament? Are you
kidding me? The plaintiff
hated the thought of me
being gone that long. I was
doing life in maximum secu-
rity. This wasn't house arrest
mind you, like Martha Stew-
art got after her time in the
slam. I would have gladly
donned the ankle bracelet
and been thankful.'
No kidding, folks, if I walk-


and it was there on a recent
morning. he recounted the
journey that took him halfway
around the world.
A singular identity
Lakey was born 90 years
ago next month in Auck-
land, the son of a barber.
He went to school in the
suburb of Newmarket and
was always athletic, playing
cricket and football every
chance he got.
"I didn't particularly like
team sports," Lakey said. "I
was searching more for a sin-
gular identity. That's why I
got into wrestling."
He became good at it and
turned professional in Aus-
tralia, working his first
matches in the '30s as the
world prepared to go to war.
When WorldWar II started,
Lakey found himself serving
as a British merchant marine
on converted troop ships
,like the Queen Mary and the
Queen Elizabeth, hauling
soldiers to the Middle East.
As the British and Japanese
empires slugged it out, Lakey
found little time to wrestle -
just a few scattered matches
in his home port of Sydney.
Wrestling was a popular
sport Down Under, and once
the war was over, Lakey
decided to stick with it in New
Zealand and Australia. He
then used the skills he
learned to fulfill his dream of
traveling the United States.
He changed his name to Jack
Carter because people would
often mispronounce Lakey.
Lakey arrived on the West
Coast around 1948. He found
work, and eventually ven-

today. Back then, though, it
enabled him to make a very
healthy living. ("As compared
to what they make today, it
was nothing.")
' The sport has left many
men crippled or with short-
ened lifespans, but besides
suffering a broken leg and a
cracked rib or two, Lakey
came out of the business, in
once piece.
"I got a bad neck I'm
paying for it now, and I'm a'
little stiff," he said. "I wound
up with. a few maladies per-
taining to the advancement
of age. Age overtakes us all."
The road, too, nearly took
its toll.
i"I fell asleep at the wheel
one night on the way from
Detroit back to Chicago," he:
said. "That's when I said,
'That's it.'"
.'For the 'next half-century,
Lakey lived his life like many
others a businessman'
who retired and eventually
moved from Chicago to
Southwest Florida. Jack Car-
ter existed only as a memory
and an image in a few black-;
and-white photos and faded
newspaper clippings.
Asked if he enjoyed his life
as a wrestler, Lakey answered
without hesitation, "Yes."
"I enjoyed it very much
because it encompassed a
lifetime dream to see the
United States."


?for love

ed out to my truck I had to
answer for what I was doing:
out there. Thank God for Sun-
day bags ... bwhahahahaha.
After the helicopter came,
and rescued me oh wait,:
that's "Papillon" '- I vowed
that the next time I got
hitched it was going to be to
someone who appreciated
that I have a nomad's spirit. I
gotta do what I gotta do when
I gotta do it.
Sometimes it's great and
sometimes it's not. Because I
give her the same freedoms;
that I expect on a daily basis,:
we really get along great. I;
hope she doesn't find the,
Lojack I put in her purse, but'
we'll cross that bridge when
we come to it.
So I guess it's time to get
my clubs together and start
sacrificing. It's. gonna be
about 100 degrees in the
shade today and somebodyi
could get severely dehydrated
out there. There's also the
probability of alligator at-
tacks, broken bones and lossI
of pride and coin alike, but
there is no better feeling than
knowing you're doing some-
thing out of love for another
person.
I love you, honey.
See ya.

Life moves on when school year begins


What happened to summer vacation?
For that matter, what happened to
school starting late in August?
What would have happened if some
Venice Little Leaguers were so successful,
they kept winning all the way. to Wil-
liamsport, Pa., and the Aug. 27-28 World Ser-
ies? Same with softball and other summer
tournaments?
We know: The kids would have missed
several days of school. Families that tradi-
tionally have reunions or vacations in August
must make choices. Go as scheduled and
have their children miss some days or stay
home.
Because school starts Monday.
Why so early? Don't say the words loudly.


Whisper them very quietly: hurricane sea-
son. Just in case, Venice schools and all those
in Sarasota County are starting the school
year Aug. 8. Charlotte County schools are
opening two days later. DeSoto County
schools opened even earlier, Friday, Aug. 5.
The last scheduled day for students in
Sarasota County is Tuesday, May 23. There's a
five-day Thanksgiving weekend. There's a
break for the last two weeks of December and
another one for the last week of March. There
are professional days and holidays.
But, there are also 180 days scheduled for
school, unless we get hit with another you
know what.
What happened to summer vacation?
Sure, we noticed the back-to-school sales


and all the open houses and meet-the-
teacher events. But surely the Fourth of July
was just a few days ago, and already it's time
to pack the lunches and load up the back-
packs.
And that's just how we adults feel. Imagine
what our kids are thinking: Didn't I just stop
doing this? When can I stop for good?
The answer to the last question is "too
soon."'
As we adults know now, those school years
go just as fast as our parents told us they
would at least, they do if you're a parent.
The baby you brought home from the hospi-
tal onlyweeks ago is ready to start school arid
will be graduating in a few months, or so it
seems.


Kids, on the other hand, are experts at'the
relativity of time. They know that summer
vacation lasts about 10 minutes, whereas the
period between Thanksgiving and Christmas
is roughly a year.
Thus it.ever was and, wesuspect, thus it
ever will be.
So tomorrow morning, lay out the new
clothes. Make sure that backpack has all the
necessities in it. Dig out some lunch money
or whip up a PB&J.
March your little darlings off to the bus
stop or into the car to head to the next station
on the road to their future.
And record every second in your mental
photo album, because this particular day
isn't going to happen ever again.


The answer



seems simple


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Ask just: about anyone
about what they like about
Venice and they will tell you
the quainmness of the town.
They like the parks, huge
oaks, historic architecture,
and the downtown in general.
There is a proposal to
change the character of
downtown to something
quite different. I wonder why?
The proposal calls for a hotel
of sorts, shops and a restau-
rant.
In the current downtown
area, which seems to be loved
by all, we have much the
same. We have a hotel, shops
of varying heights even liv-'
ing quarters above. We have
several restaurants with more
on the way. The current build-
ing heights, which seem very
pleasing, are from one to
three stories.
Even Mike Miller ofWater-
ford, when he planned the
two. current nine-story build-
ings, proposed a plan for the
other 3.5 acres south of Tam-
pa Avenue. His plan was to
have two- to three-story
shops with a nice garden in
between and a park on the
Intracoastal. It was certainly
easier to approve the nine,
stories because there were
going ito be parks and open
spaces in the rest, basically an
extension of downtown. The
open space on that proposal
- 3.5 acres represented
about a third of the space.
The current proposal,
changed all of that drastically.
*The open space that is not
WCIND land is now only
about 5-10 percent and
involves none of the main
block, a far cry from the pleas-
ing extension of downtown
that had been planned.
But to me the answer
seems very simple and meets
all of the desires of the con-
stituents: Why not build more
of what we like just like dowri-
town (which was their origi-'
nal proposal) a 'hotel,
shops of three stories and two
stories and a restaurant of two
stories? Then throw in some,
green space, a fountain or two
and some trees' and we're
there.
The Bowie report called for
this, except with heights from
one to four stories. I could
even see making the hotel (as
long as it is a traditional hotel
and not a condo) four stories,
as this is a critical need and
could justify an exception. We


should use the zoning we
already have in place, maybe
with an exception for a four-
story hotel.
We have the model; we
have the zoning codes: Now
we just need to apply them to
this area and this project.'.
,The design looked nice
and, with something like they
proposed in 2001, would real-
ly fit the John Nolen feel and
character of the city.


By's Crack: One Ki-
waniantold me that he got
his first inkling of trouble
when his boy came home
. from -school,-arid-said,
"There's a special meeting
of the PTA tonight just
you, my teacher and the
principal."
*****
It was a sad week Once
again we lost prominent and
involved citizens. The passing
of three people caught my
attention
Col. Berry Walker, who was
one of the favorite teachers of
all time at Venice High and a
city council member, passed
away at age 87.
We also dost Peter Mac-
donald, who had not been in
Venice as long but was a very
bright and articulate person
who was interested in what
happened to our city. He con-
tributed with lots of intelli-
gent discussion.
The third person was my
barber, Mike Durham. Mike
happened to have graduated
from the same high school I
did in Urbana, Ill. He was
wonderfully' upbeat person
who brightened all around
him. He helped with the St.
Pat's Parade and maybe was
known best for heading quiz
nights at T.J. Camey's. He was
only 56.
Our losses the last couple
of months have been so sad.
United Way ended its chm-
paign with a nice year end
push by its board to go over
$600,000. This was an incred-
ible year and to celebrate that,
the Venice Gondolier Sun
sponsored a thank-you to all
of the businesses and groups
that joined in this year to
make this big change possi-
ble.
Last year the agency raised
$505,000 and set a goal of
$525,000. I secretly wrote
down that I would like to see
us reach $600,000, which,
thanks to great support, was
reached, though on the last
day, thanks in large part to
Judy Wilcox, who spurred us
all on.
She will be chairing the
2005-2006 campaign, which
should be a great year with
the new executive director,
Steve Brett, who will make a

Editor:
In a communist economic system the government owns the
means of production. In a socialist economic system the gov-
ernment controls the means of production. The communist
system has a long history of failure. The socialist .system is
doomed to the same fate.
Here in the United States academics and government elites
keep trying to make a doomed system succeed; it ain't gonna
happen!
Locally, in dealing with affordable housing, the communist
approach is out. The socialist approach is in, but the producers
are balking. The San Francisco Bay area is an example of social-
ist theory on housing run amok. Affordable housing is a myth.
In every economic system, no matter how large or small,
there are winners and losers. Communism and socialism tend
to level the playing field and all except the ruling despotic elite
enjoy the yoke of government equally.
SCapitalism is not immune from having winners and losers,
except there are far greater winners than losers. The ruling elite
is held in check by the freedoms of the people.
Benevolence is an admirable human quality, not a responsi-
bility of government. To quote James Madison: "I cannot
undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution
which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of
benevolence, the money of their constituents."
Let the marketplace decide issue. Granted it will not be
a quick fix but it will be a sound, long-term solution to what is
today a problem driven by an emotional frenzy.

Pick up your trash
Editor:
There seems to be a lack of
knowledge as to who is
responsible for clean-up of
the city.
At Venice Beach area there
are various trash containers
that are filled with garbage
from various nearby sites
such as the restaurant on the
Venice island beach area on
the Esplanade.
It would seem the persons
or corporation that runs this
area is lacking knowledge in
how to handle the debris.
Perhaps instead of all those
various trash containers, we
could replace them with a


large dumpster by the restau-
rant.
Perhaps some of our citi-
zens who feel so lacking in
their responsibilities will
show some effort to carry the
garbage to the dumpster
rather than just sitting back
stating they are just too old.
Second, Venice Regional
Medical Center offers valet
parking. Where on earth does
it state that a valet will run
and get someone's automo-
bile, either for admittance or
discharge?
Certainly if one is well
enough to operate a motor
vehicle, they should be more'
than capable of getting out of


this vehicle and walking.

Community must
set the standard
Editor:
I'm not sure what kind of
agenda Mr. Farley has, but
attacking the parenting skills
of someone that he has never
met underscores the type of
ignorance that seems to be
permeating the whole ECC
tragedy. That mentality must
change'if we are to survive as
a healthy community.
What a community needs
is a sense of direction, a code
of ethics that is very clear on
the issue of right and wrong.'
It must treasure its children,.
as they are the innocent fu-
ture; nurture them, protect,
them and, most of all, love
them.
If any wrongdoing takes,
place against our children,
there must be community
members who are willing to
impart a swift and just ac-
counting of all that are re-
sponsible. This will send a
message to all that a healthy
community does not stand
for child abuse, now or ever.
,Unfortunately, we do not
seem to be the model of a
healthy community. Repre-
hensible acts did take place to
our precious children by their
own teachers. Administrators
knowingly looked the other
way. Elected officials are apa-
thetic, unwilling to stand up
for right and wrong.
Community members are
throwing inflammatory accu-
sations against parents in-
volved and, quite despicably,
blaming the children for what


they went through. Others are
just refusing to believe that
this could happen "in my
community."
If we persist in accepting
the actions of those involved,
and the naivete of people like
Mr. Farley, then this will never
change, and our community
will continue to decay.

Can't believe people
think this is sensible
Editor:
I finally figured it out. And
that is scary.
The Save the Manatee
group successfully argued in
court that the restrictions on
new boat dock construction
were a way to protect the
manatees.
The county of Sarasota has
been complaining about lack
of boat docks and boat access
to our waterways. As a result
they will buy 11 acres for $16
million on Blackburn Road
and provide boat ramps and
parking for 100 cars with their
trailers.
From this we can conclude
two things: First, boats do not
harm manatees, docks do.
Second, it is better for the tax-
payer to spend the money for
boat access/rather than devel-
opers that are willing to build
with their own money.
The thing that bothers me
is that the above seems rea-
sonable to decision makers
and courts of our county.
Scary, isn't it?

Save the spray for the bugs


No wonder. What is wrong with Sarasota County? A truck,
with mosquito spraying, just went by my home at 8:30. Kids are
still out riding their bikes. People are still driving and walking
around. Does 'anybody have anything between their ears in
this county? That's supposed to be after everybody is in bed. It's
no wonder we have red tide, fish kills, manatees dying. Nobody
is doing anything right. I'm appalled. And not too long after
that here comes a man in a convertible up the street. What is
wrong? There must be no authority, nobody in charge, no
decent supervision. Shame on the county, just plain shame.


Out-of-line. First of all, on
one of the alphabetical streets
here in South Venice there's a
Habitat for Humanity house,
somewhat run-down, your
typical trucks parked in the
front yard and garbage, with
the Confederate flag painted
on the front door. Now, my
understanding is that the city
donates this land, the city that
I pay taies in. So, I think that's
a little bit out-of-line and just
downright tacky. Second of
all, this whole thing with the
skateboarders. When I was a
kid I didn't have a skateboard,
nor did I have a pool or a
beach. So these younger kids
have three things on me and
I'm only 50. Maybe they
should just read a book or sit
in front of their computer, or.
hang out in their swimming
pool or go to their beach. I
don't understand 'why the
skateboard thing is necessary
in a downtown business dis-
trict. I think what we should
do is make it an understand-
ing, a state law, that if a parent.
allows their children to ride a
skateboard that they have
automatically signed a waiver
of any responsibility of any
kind of accident that they
may be involved in with a car
or any kind of collision. As a
parent I know how the people
of south Florida drive.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Habitat
properties in South Venice were
not donated by the city of Venice.
They are outside the city limits.
Personal responsibility. In
reading the VGS front page:
"Venice youth: Lookin' for a
place to hang," what has our
society turned into? For a
place to hang? Nothing to do?
Bored? Blaming the older
people living in Venice? Yet
some of them are using drugs
and drinking alcohol. Oh, by
the way, where are the parents
looking after these minor
children? As reported, some
nothing-to-do juveniles now
go to a South County young
adults center for a place offer-
ing something to do other
than drinking, doing drugs
and smoking. Have, these
nothing-to-do juveniles of
today riot heard of all our
wonderful beaches, public
parks, tennis, courts, and a
host of YMCA programs and
activities, etc.? Oh myn, yet the
city council has to cater and
pander to those nothing-to-
do children with still more*
activities, such as a $400,000
water fountain and' costly
skateboard park. Maybe a
seniors-tax-funded, Disney-
type amusement park is what
they need to be happy here in
Venice. Will these spoiled
minors ever be satisfied? Do
these few think they live in a
Third World country living in
poverty? Yet they complain.
Oh sad. How about this? Get a
summer job and earn some
spending money and get
some experience in the work-
place. How abouthanging out
at our wonderful Venice Pub-
lic Library and getting some
education and make some-
thing out of themselves? Get a
life and stop complaining and
blaming seniors living here.
Was there not a time that
younger people actually re-
spected older people? So
then, either stop with your
immature behavior and take
some personal responsibility.
Or why not move away from
here if it's so bad? Maybe you
would like to trade places
with the many poor children
living in impoverished places
like Mexico.
No fireworks. Here we are,
two days after July Fourth,
and there are still pieces of
bottle rockets and fireworks
lying in the streets. I see it all
over South Venice. I can't
believe people would make
that mess right in front of


their house and not bother to
clean it up and just wait for
the rain to wash it into our
bays. My opinion about fire-
works in a close residential
neighborhood like this is that
they should be illegal and en-
forced. There are too many
houses that have screens on
their lanais to have fireworks
going on in the area. I have a
couple of burns in my
screens. I don't know who
they came from. I wish I knew.
I think the city should enforce
that. .
EDITOR'S NOTE: Most of the
fireworks used on the Fourth of
July were used illegally, but the
sheriffs office is the appropriate
agency to enforce the law in South
Venice.
No excuse. To the person in

neighbors just love you. Work
is no excuse. My husband has
worked for 45 years, but our
lawn is always mowed. If you
work so many hours that you
can't mow and keep things up,
then you should have enough
money to have it done by
someone else. I know people
on Social Security who have
their lawn done. Could it be
that you enjoy being a slob?

mayed to read that the Venice
Regional Medical Center is
willing to spend $2.5 million-
$3 million to put a new face
on the hospital. If you put lip-

pig. I believe a better use of
that money would be joining
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice in building
affordable housing for the
hospital employees.
Holiday fireworks. No,
Venice should not schedule
its fireworks the Sunday
before the holiday, Venice
should schedule the fireworks
the Saturday before the holi-
day. This way the parents
would not have to work on
Monday. Because if some had
off Sunday, then the kids
could stay out late. But you
never get out of Harbor Drive
if you go out to see the fire-
works. It's bumper to bumper
for what' seems like 45 min-
utes. You got tons of cops and
police explorers and yet no-
body heeds them. And also,
Venice should have fireworks
for New Year's. Give some-
thing to the businesses for
NewYear's. It seems like South
Venice and the classier places

celebration, as this was his
final year and he went out
with a bang.
Put down Sept. 15 on your
calendar for the kickoff for the

The new gazebo in Blalock
Park is very nice, but I wonder
about it. I thought for some
reason that we were going to
build a bandshell so we would
have a spot for bigger con-
certs, as is done with the
Venice Symphony in its free
March concert. Bill Milner
and the concert band have
said that the Gazebo down-
town is just too small for a
group their size.
Tp make things worse, it is
in the center of the park. The
stage is usually on the west,
boundary of the park with
people spreading out from
there. Now the gazebo is in
the middle of where people sit
to enjoy those big events. I
just don't think this one was
well thought out:

STAFF REPORT


This video image led to the arrest of Aaron M. Moen-ci on 10
charges, including seven counts of burglary from Osprey busi-
nesses.


Burglary suspect arrested


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County Sheriff's
detectives arrested Aaron M.
Moench, 20, at his home, 400
block Pennsylvania Ave.,
Osprey, on seven counts of
burglary, one count of escape
and two counts of resisting
without violence, Thursday at
6:20 p.m.
Between July 1 and July 5,
several businesses along
South Tamiami Trail were
burglarized in a similar man-
ner.
On Aug. 4, an employee of
Tervis Tumbler called to noti-
fy detectives that he found the
digital recorder taken from
the store during a burglary'


that occurred on July 4. Two
detectives viewed the digital,
images from the night of the
incident and a clear image of
Aaron Moench had been cap-
tured.
Other businesses that were
burglarized are M&D Kitchen,
Osprey Car Wash, Richard's
Whole Foods, Osprey Leather,
Nea-Linda Country Market
and Brian's Auto, all in Osprey.
At Moench's residence at
the time of his arrest was Ha-
leyWehrlen, 19, who was dis-
covered with a controlled
substance and paraphernalia.
Wehrlen was arrested and
charged with possession of a
controlled substance and
possession of paraphernalia.


Sheriff William Balkwill has
announced that detectives
Debra Kaspar and Rich Star-
owesky were awarded the
Regional Exceptional Service
Award at the National As-
sociation of School Resource
Officers national conference
in Dallas, Texas, on July 15.
Kaspar, an SRO assigned to
the elementary-school pro-
gram, made an effort to rein-
force the lessons learned by
students in the DARE pro-
gram by taking small groups
of herDARE students to local
high school football games.
By observing high school stu-
dents, the DARE students
learned about making posi-
tive choices and staying 'off
drugs.
After viewing the positive
effects of this program, Kas-
par committed herself to tak-
ing every fifth-grade DARE
student that attended her
three assigned schools to a
high school sporting event.


This program continues to
build on the philosophy of
law enforcement officers
interacting with the younger
students and making a posi-
tive influence on their lives as
soon as possible.
During June-October 2004,
Starowesky, an SRO assigned
to Venice High School, took
on a monumental project: a
DVD that will be used in case
of a crisis on a school campus.
This cutting-edge technology
was designed to be used by
emergency responders and
can be security protected and
installed, into patrol vehicles
or fire trucks, or used by the
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict and the sheriff's office.
The creation of the DVD
involved the interagency
. cooperation of Starowesky
and Officer J.W. Triplett of the
North Port Police Depart-
ment. Other SCSO personnel
involved in this project were
Detective Wayne Ferris,
Detective Mark Perrin and
Deputy John Cox.

LOOKING FOR REGULAR INCOME? |
CONSIDER BONDS.

By staggering your bond investments, you can receive
a monthly interest check instead of one check every
six months. You'll get a regular income stream, which
makes your overall planning much easier. Call me to
find out more about monthly bond interest checks.

Investors should keep in mind that as interest rates
rise existing bond prices of already-outstanding fixed-
income securities tend to fall. Long-term bonds are
generally more exposed to interest rate risk than
short-term bonds. -

Around town
While watching TV recently,
I was pleasantly surprised to
see one of my favorite people
and Venice Yacht Club mem-
ber, Ann Van Cott. She was do-
ing a spot for Sarasota Parks.
Ann was one of the first
people I met when I moved to
Venice 24 years ago. She is a
wonderful advocate for the
environment and for saving
plenty of green space on this
planet. Ann believes scrub
jays and turtles are people too.
Low carbs

ets most days is an opportuni-
ty to sample some delicious
Food. Rita Meyer recently gave
me a chance to taste some of
their Artisian Breads. I had the
rustic asiago cheese loaf and
the chocolate cheers. Wheni
we started discussing calories
and carbs, Rita pulled out a
chart and showed me the
breads were low in sugars and
fats. Be sure to try some.
Pat on the back
Special kudos to the custo-
dians at Venice Elementary
School. They are often the un-
sung heroes. Every teacher
knows custodians are among
the most important people on
staff. Denny and his staff at
Venice El are great.


Gabriel's Angels provides




hope in Haiti


STORY BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER
ee McStravick and her husband Tom,
traveled to Haiti and were moved by the
terrible living conditions and poverty.
Particularly disturbing were the orphaned
children. So they started an orphanage, school
and clinic to help the children.


Manma Dee.
That's what the children at
Gabriel's Angels orphanage in
Haiti call Venice resident Dee
McSiravick. The orphanage
was started two years ago
with the initiative of McStrav-,
ick and a few caring Haitians.
After visiting Haiti; the
McStravicks went back down,
met up with some Haitian
people and decided to build
an orphanage.
"About nine years ago, I
went to Haiti on a mission
trip down there," McStravick
said. "Over that nine years I
just got really attached and
wanted to help the people. I
was really touched by the
poverty down there. It was so
devastating. I wondered how,
anybody could survive there."
NMcStraxick wanted to help.
There was just no way that
she could go home and not
try to help in some way. She
kept wanting to go back.
Forming the orphanage was
an opportunity to help the
children and provide employ-
ment for some adults.
Pierre Frantz, a Haitian res-
ident, owns a cement busi-
ness in Nlontrouis. He built
the orphanage as well as a
missionary complex, medical
clinic and a school. He also
plans to build the town's first
high school.
"We've got 18 children in
the orphanage. We're still try-
ing to really get it built. It's not
totally finished. We're trying
to get it finished so they have
a nice place to live."


Each month McStravick
sends money down to the or-
phanage for food and sup-
plies. She also has to pay the
staff of Haitian people who
run it Even though the or-
phanage is a blessing there is
still more work to be done in
order to make it a better place
for the children.
"We have a well that needs
to be dug deeper and there's a
lot of other projects that need
to be worked on," McStravick
said.
Visits to the orphanage are
costly and often dangerous.
McStravick said she tries to go
down there every six months.
"It's been very dangerous
down there lately. There's a lot
of rebel activity going on and'
robberies," NMcStraick said.
"One of the people who takes
care of us down there got
stopped. They put a gun to his
head, made him get out of the
vehicle and took off with the
missionaries in the car with
them. They stole everything.
They didn't get killed, so
thank goodness for that. It's
very dangerous now."
Amid the danger, the or-
phanage's mission at a mini-
mum is to teach the 16 chil-
dren cooking, sewing, gar-
dening, proper hygiene, aca-
demics and Bible study.
According to the orphan-
age, the local school is about
1/4 mile from the orphanage
and for the cost of a uniform,
books, pen and paper the
children will be able to attend
the program. Currendty the


Most of the population of Haiti live in small huts like this one.

mother died a year agoand he has no known family.

children are used to getting
dnly one meal a da\; normally
bread or beans. The orphan-
age intends to be able to pro-
vide at least two meals a day
for the children. This way
when they are able to artend
school' they are not learning
on an empty stomach and
their minds are not wonder-
ing where their next meal is
coming from.
For decades. Haiti has
been plagued with poverty,
corrupt-io,- decaying infra-
structure, dictatorships, mili-
tary coups de etat and foreign
military intervention. If chil-
dren are our future, what con-
tribution to the global com-
munity can we expect of our
Children in Haiti?
Representing 70 percent of
the 7 million people on this
impoverished island, Haiti's
children endure illiteracy.
child slavery and high mortal-
ity rates. The statistics are
alarming. Haiti is universally
acknowledged to be the poor-
est nation in the Western
hemisphere, as environmen-
tal degradation and overpop-
ulation have combined to cre-
ate hellish conditions. Haiti
experiences unemployment
of more than 70 percent and
the average wage of those
lucky enough to find employ-
ment is the equivalent of
approximately $150 per year.
"It's really bad. The poverty
part of Haiti is awful. They beg
for a bowl of rice every day.
They have worms and para-
sites. A lot of' them have ma-
laria and typhoid fever," Mc-
Stravick said.
The orphanage has a clinic
and McStravick has taken
teams to check up on the
overall health of the children.
"They always need a den-
tist." she said. "We have a lot
of nurses who like to go."
One child at the orphan-
age, a young boy named
Thomas, needs to have his
adenoids taken out.
"What's so sad is to think
we of all we have and that one
of our kids would immediate-
ly get that done," McStravick
said. "'These kids they
spend all their life suffering
because they can't afford it."
It costs about $150 to put a
child in school and their par-
ents don't even have that, so
that's another thing we try to
have people sponsor. We'd
really like to have people to go
down there and train the chil-
dren so they can have a skill.
"It costs about $1,000 a
month to keep it running, to
make sure the kids have
enough food and to pay the
staff," McStravick said. "Our
dollar is worth about seven
times more there, so it can

9, from Haiti.

really do a lot.
"The Haitians built it,
which was kind of neat be-
cause it gave them a job.
They're so gifted and talented.
They don't get the opportuni-
ties, so they don't get to use
them that much especially
the kids who are so gifted
artistically.


"When we go down there
we tote so much stuff and
you're only allowed to bring
so much stuff. It's easier for
me to send the money down
there and buy things there. I
would love to hear from any-
body who has any ideas on

showy leaves, and didn't
know anything about the
plant. My husband and Iboth
love gardening and he usually
plants our seedlings in a
shade bed on the north side
of the house. This is our trial-
and-error test bed. It took off
likewild fire; some plants just
do that in the hot summer
heat when water is abundant.,
Its foliage was so shapely and
it was growing so rapidly, we
moved it to a perfect spot
(focal point) at the very end of
the front of the house. Wow,
was it ever beautiful. On that
fateful Aug. 13, Hurricane
Charley tore it apart. Even
though our house sustained
e dis- absolutely no damage what-
nough soever, part of my candlestick
ill the plant was ripped out and it
week. was leaning over from the
veter- sustaining winds and rain.
Bob had to prune it back
pitcher severely. I thought it would
take a long time to recover.

Is it a bush or a tree?


SUN PHOTO BY CAROL MOZIK


But, holy cow, in the last
couple of months it has
reached a height of at least 10
feet high and 10 feet wide.
The blooms are beginning to
open and it is everything I
dreamed it would be. My
husband thinks it is "out of
control and obnoxious." I'll
have to watch him with the
axe. The ants seem to love
the blossoms, too, so I won't
be picking. the blooms.


But, I still don't know, is it a
bush or a tree?

Certified Audiologist


Q. I wear two, powerful
hearing aids everyday but
still miss large parts of
conversations. Why don't
my hearing aids help me to
understand it all?
A. Most people who need
help hearing do not actively
seek help until 10 years after
their first symptoms appear!
A vast number of people
know they have a hearing
loss but state, that they
"aren't bad enough yet" to
invest in hearing aids. The
problem with this scenario is
that by the time they do feel
hearing aids are necessary, a
great portion of their hearing
is gone. Hearing aids cannot
restore -hearing that is no
longer there. Hearing aids
are just that, aids, and can
only enhance hearing which
is diminished, but still there.
An audiologist can perform
the examinations necessary
to determine how much of
your residual hearing is still
aidable. This is important
because if a hearing aid is
applying amplification. to a
portion of your hearing
which is very damaged, it
may be adding distortion to
your already damaged
hearing system. Only an
audiologist is qualified to
evaluate the extent of
damage your hearing system
has incurred. Call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Center,
Inc. at 492-4327 to
schedule an examination

FOR 2005 BEST PRACTICES AWARD

The Florida Center for Child and Family Development won sec-
ond place for the 2005 Best Practices Awards given by the Florida
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association (FADAA).
The Florida Center will receive S750 to be used for the Families
and Schools Together (FAST) program.
The FAST Program started in 1988 as a program for at-risk
elementary school children ages 5-12, and their families. School
personnel, trained professionals and parents facilitate family
support groups and meeting involving five and 25 families at one
time.
Each group meeting consists of a family meal and communica-
tion games, a self-help parent support group, supervised playtime
and organized activities for the children, one-to-one parent-
mediated play therapy, and opening and closing portions that
show children the effectiveness of family routines.

LISTEN TO YOUR DENTIST
Occasionally a patient will insist that a painful tooth be "pulled".
Although it may be that your dentist will recommend exactly that,
please listen to his/her advice before you insist on a particular
treatment. The advice could very well save you time, unnecessary
expense, and give you a result that is far superior to that which could
be achieved if your suggested procedure was followed..
Your dentist is a skilled professional who has probably seen the
results of whatever condition you are presenting many times. He/she
has had vast experience in achieving the kind of results you would
want. New techniques and materials make professional advice
essential.
What once doomed a tooth to extraction may now be treated in a
simple and comfortable way. The loss of one tooth may initiate a series
of problems which could require extensive treatment, unnecessary
time, reduced function and expense.

What's New at Oscar



Scherer State Park?


BY JOHN ROCHE
GUESTWRITER


Your state park is part of
... the real Florida, a living
landscape; growing, breath-
ing, changing, with every
new day, season and cycle.
Let's look and see what
changes are occurring,
what's expected and the re-
sulting impacts on the flora
and fauna of the park.
Summertime has brought
rain to the pine and scrubby
flatwoods. After a long bum
season the rejuvenation in
these habitats is evident all
around. You may remember
last summer we went through
a thinning of the pines in an
effort to restore a more na-
tural balance of canopy and
understory. Well, after the
downed timber was removed

The picnic areas at Oscar Scherer State Park are lush and green,
and the lake is cool and inviting.


from the pine forests and the
dead vegetation burned, these
communities have rebound-
ed and look great. We have
witnessed a great variety of

The long burn season has rejuvenated the vegetation at Oscar
Scherer State Park.


plant life blooming; the birds
and butterflies attracted to
this bounty are a vision of the
future. We hope to see more
Sherman fox squirrels and'
quail in the recently opened
forests.
Of course the rains have
catised some flooding in the
park, but this too, is a natural
event. The pine flatwoods
have evolved to withstand
months of'wet ground. Next
time you are coming back
this way from 1-75, look to the
north as you cross the over-
pass for the Rails to Trails.,.
You will notice a large, dough-
nut-shaped lake in a zone of
pine trees. This wedand is just
a depression in the woods, but
for months now has been
home to many amphibians
like tree frogs that need the
water for reproduction; you
should hear them sing in the
evenings. It then becomes a
feeding area for wading birds,
Xaccoons and reptiles.


Our hiking trails have sev-
eral with low wet areas, mak-
ing nature walks a bit difficult,
as well as just getting back
and forth to do the routine
park work we are responsible.
for. It does help in this years'
burning program to be able
to bum up to standing water,
there's not much chance of a
fire getting away then.
In the scrub, the fires have
"rekindled" a growth in the
families of scrub jays. New
fledglings are showing up in
different areas of the park
which is a good sign for this
species success, and the park.
As you know, Oscar Scherer
State Park is considered the


"Crown Jewel" in Sarasota
County's Habitat Conserva-
tion Plan. Over the past few
years a combination of fac-
tors have hindered popula-
tion growth for scrub jays.
While the county plans to.
make protection of suitable,
habitat work, we are working
to preserve the species until
they can disperse once more
over their range.
There are some very
interesting projects going
on to enrich the Scrubby
Flatwoods diversity. Come
take a walk on Sunday
mornings with our CSO
President or a park ranger
and see what I mean.


The picnic areas are lush
and green, the lake inviting
'for a swim on a hot after-
noon, and no red tide! South
Creek is flowing strong so
canoeing is a hit or miss
adventure. Be careful on the
water this time of year be-
cause the storms have not
left and can pop up at a
moment's notice. We invite
you to. come out and enjoy
your state park. It's always a
good thing to do.

Manager of Oscar Scherer
State Park. See the park

Are you for us or against us?


KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST


That seems to be the ques-
tion raised by the many of the
letter writers and others who
have called into the Gondolier
concerning the skateboard-
ers. But as you read the com-
ments again you see that
many have phrased their
comments as a very ugly
argument that is expressed as
young versus old. The point
they raise is who gets the most
stufP. Why would these folks
see this as a generational war?
Why do we see it as them
against us?
I like what Richard Brooks


said the other Sunday, "The
better question might be:
How can we give the other
side what they want and pre-
serve what is most important
to us?"
"Too often groups with
competing or conflicting
agendas do not see they share
goals and interests," he goes
on to say in his article about
raising the railroad bridge.
I see this applying to what
is going on here too. When
was the last time you sat
down with someone "from
the otherside" and had a real
honest conversation? Did you
share your goals and con-
cerns? Did you ask about their
interests? Who has sat down
with the skateboarders in
downtown Venice and asked
them why they choose to use
their boards there? Have we
sat down with any of our
10,000 teenagers in greater
Venice and asked them how
they felt about their commu-
nity?
I know that when I sit with
an intergenerational group of


young people and elders they
soon become very animated
in a friendly conversation
because they soon discover
they have nothing to fear
from the other side and they
share many concerns and
needs.
Young people and old alike
want to be treated with
respect. Each wants to have
and maintain their dignity.
Young people are growing to
earn their independence as
adults and our elders are
striving very hard to maintain
their independence. Neither
wants handouts. Each is ask-
ing the question of who am I?
But from a different perspec-
tive, one is: Have I made a dif-
ference? And.the other: How
can I make my life have
meaning?
Then there are basic issues
like transportation. They both
are looking at driving. One
wants to have that car and
drive. The other wants to keep
that car and driving privilege

Dictates offashion change with time


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST (0WlMInS'

Who dictates what styles
arid colors we wear this year?
Who are the moguls of the
industry who dare to suggest
that this year we should wear
pink and kiwi?
A concern for fashion is
worldwide. Recently a friend


told me of her dismay to find
that most of the Masai war-
riors in Tanzania have dis-
carded their traditional blood
dyed one-piece wrap in favor
of one made from red plaid
manufactured cloth bought
from the village traders. The
fashion statement is made by
which plaid is worn.
She also recounted how
three Japanese women who
were recent visitors to our
area, were excited over their
purchases of expensive -de-
signer handbags from the
local outet mall, of course in
the hot new fashion colors of
chartreuse and pink.
I was reading (through my
talking books) a story about a
wealthy New Orleans belle
who, with her mother and sis-


ter, spent a year in London
and Paris in high society,
shortly after the Civil War.
Each lady took at least four
huge trunks of clothing to
accommodate their three or
four changes for the different,
social events of the day. Each
outfit consisted of a corset to
slim the waist and accentuate
the bosom. There were at'
least four or five layers of
undergarments and a special
parasol and hat to match
each dress. Many of the gar-
menis had very tiny buttons
and buttonholes. I suppose
they had special high-button
shoes for each event too. Do
you know why women used
such long hat pins back then?

both knowing it represents
freedom and independence.
One of the big common
needs that I see is someone to
talk with that will really take
the time to listen and not
judge. Our young people
need adult role models. Just
look at them trying to find a
hero and fit in. We all did it
with our dress whether it was
long hair or shaved heads or
crew cuts and flat tops or
Valentino slicked down hair,
or beads or .earrings or Zoot
suits we copied someone. Do
you realize that the average
teenager in America spends
three and one-half hours
alone each day and the aver-
age person older than 65
watches almost 40 hours of
TV each week. Our elders face
terrible isolation and loneli-
ness filled with mindless TV
while our young are growing
up alone searching for a rela-
tionship that will help them
reach the goals and desires of
their heart.
Let us do what Richard
Brooks suggests and sit down
and talk about what is most
important to each of us and
see the goals and interests we
share. One is our history; the
foundation on which we
build the future that is our
youth. Let us talk. Very soon.

SCOPE receives $15,000 from Bank of America


STAFF REPORT

SCOPE, Sarasota County
Openly Plans for Excellence,
is proud to announce was
awarded a $15,000 grant from
the Bank of America Client
Foundation in July 2005. The
Julius Brandenburg Fund
gives these monies for the
support of the "Aging: The
Possibilities" initiative, which
looks at healthy and positive
ways that individuals can age
in Sarasota County.
The first Community As-
sembly held in April 2005 led
to the creation of 10 action
teams of volunteers who are
the catalysts for positive com-
munity change. Now in full-


swing, these volunteers are
following their passion by
engaging in learning more
about their areas through
research and conversations
with knowledgeable profes-
sionals. Areas of focus in-
clude, but are not limited to,
aging in place, community
activism, housing and inter-
generational relations. Future
Community Assemblies will
provide a venue for these
teams to share what they
have learned and create op-
portunities for further con-
nection and synergy.
The Bank of America Cli-
ent Foundation monies will
support the staff, direct
expenses and the promotion

one year in the first week of
September, Style decreed that
you had to wear a winter wool
or velvet dress, in dark colors,
with hat and gloves. The tem-
perature was .about 97 de-
grees and it was humid. It was
fall and, of course, you didn't
dare wear summer clothes to
a proper fall occasion. My
complete misery must have
shown through, because out
of several teas, only one
sorority invited me to join.
I was never one to follow
the latest styles in clothes, so,


I'm no authority on the sub-
ject, but my friend, Fran is.
She points out that women's
styles have changed more
radically than men's. For
many years, to be with it, one
had to follow the dictates of
fashion. Now, anything goes,
which I think is kind of nice.
Remember when you bought
a skirt or dress and the sales
or alteration lady knew exact-
ly how many inches above the
floor the hem should be? A
friend told me that her moth-
er said that when the econo-
my was bad, the hemlines
went to the knees, and when
the economy was good, the
skirts became much longer..
I once went into an exclu-
sive dress shop in our little
town in Michigan, asking to
look at a dress in a half size,
since I'm short and didn't


have a sylph-like figure. The
woman looked down her
nose at me (whom she knew
well) and said, "We don't sell
half sizes. Women who wear
half sizes don't have good
taste." I should have retorted
that half-size dresses were not
designed with gqod taste.
To me one of the strangest
outfits that women have
worn in the past was the short
tight mini-skirts of leather or
leopard skin. How in the
world did they ever sit down?
We all know that teenagers
like to exert the beginning of
independence by dying their
hair several colors and wear-
ing'what we oldsters consider
outlandish clothes, such as
pants worn low over their
hips, with bare midriffs, etc.
Do you.remember when teen
girls had to have penny


loafers? And remember sad-
dle shoes and bobby socks?
We can all finger the pages of
memory and recall the many
different styles we have seen
during the years.
They tell me that beautiful
men's neckties are back in
style, and may cost more than
the shirt and that the price of
a shirt now is more than my
Depression age mind can
comprehend. A few years ago
some executives even went
casual and were discarding
neckties. But each .of us could
relate dozens and dozens of
memories of strange styles.
What's your story? I dunno ...
Most of us have made the
changes in what we wore
gracefully. It is rare now to
find someone who isn't some-

Being a MainStreet city is
something to be proud of.
For a good example, we.

'But MainStreet cities also
are great places to visit. In July
I was inTroy, Ohio.
Located in the heart of the
Miami Valley, about 15 min-
utes north of the Dayton
Airport, Troy has long been
one of my favorite places to
visit. Like Venice, it is a
MainStreet city that is proud
of its heritage.
Somehow, the aluminum
siding salesmen never ran
amok in Troy. No one ever
tried to modernize the ele-
gant old Victorian buildings.
Consequently, no one has
,Oever had to restore anything
of consequence. A resident"
told me that is because Troy
has long had an active histor-
ical society.
Downtown Troy still has an
old-fashioned fountain
square. They still paint straw-
berries down Main Street for
June's Strawberry Festival and
come July, there is no finer
source of corn on the cob. A

those few who refuse to move
with the tines, and don't we,

However, if you stop and
think about it, aren't we all
just a little bit ridiculous to let
someone else dictate what we
wear, whether or not we look
good in it?

rains that flooded much of
southwestern Ohio two years
ago.,
I was there for just a week-
end, to judge a skating com-
petition at the circa 1945
Hobart Arena and to visit my
godchild and her family. ,
This summer, there were a
lot more people in the down-
town area. Some seemed
almost glued to their spots,
leaning against lampposts or
sitting on a park bench end-
lessly reading the daily paper.
The newcomers were the
work of famed bronze sculp-
tor Seward Johnson who has
created more than 200 life-
size cast bronze figures,
which have been featured in
private and public collections
throughout the world.
Two years ago, 'my Troy
friend Kathy Slack nearly
went into shok& when she'
'looked at one of Johnson's
statues on a street comer in
downtown Troy. The statue
depicted a woman who was
the spitting image of my
friend's mother, even to the
hairstyle and the kind of
clothing she was, wearing.
That is what Seward does
so well. He captures real peo-
ple doing the things teal peo-
ple do. One of his works that
has found a permanent home
at the Barnett Family Park on
Lake Mirror in Lakeland
depicts two children flying.
kites.
In Troy this summer, Sew-
ard subjects are coming home
from military service, jogging,
hanging on a stop sign while
waiting to cross a street, con-
templating work, reading to
their children, perusing news-
papers, walking dogs, taking a
first ride on a bicycle, handing
out parking tickets and pro-
viding some musical enter-
tainment.
There are 20 sculptures in
all. Most have been placed
around the public square and
a few more on Market and
Main streets, the two roads
that pass through the square.
The 20th, the dog walker, is
located in front of the Troy-
Haner Cultural Center. I
The Sculptures on the

High-end spas make Las Vegas an even more inviting destination


BY BILLORDINE
GUESTWRITER

Using accouterments
ranging from Australian
desert salt to Tibetan bowls
and techniques both ancient
and New Age, Las Vegas'
swankiest resorts have de-
vised almost as many ways to
soothe achy muscles and jan-
gled nerves as they have to
separate a gambler from his
bankroll.
Vegas resorts have long
had fancy workout and body
treatment facilities, but when
Tucson-based Canyon Ranch
opened- a branch of its world-
famous spa at the Venetian a
few years ago, the ante was
raised.
The spa competition was
evident when the Mobil
Travel Guide 'which rates
travel and dining experiences
- handed out accolades for
hotel and resort spas, and
four in Las Vegas were award-


ed four stars on a list of fewer
than 50 in North America. Just
one resort spa, at Montage
Resort in Laguna Beach,
Calif., received five stars.
The four Las Vegas 2005
four-star recipients were the
Canyon Ranch spa at the
Venetian and the spas at the
Bellagio, the Four Seasons
hotel in the Mandalay Bay
complex., and the Ritz-Carl-
ton at Lake Las Vegas, about
17 miles southeast of the
Strip. In Atlantic City, the
Borgata's spa, which offers on
its menu a Yo Rock facial for
men for $125, earned three
stars.
Casino investment in spas
has been bullish. The Bellagio
recendy more than doubled
the size of its spa to 65,000
square feet, which is larger
than what most casinos were
20 years ago. And Mandalay
Bay has a new spa in its
,recently opened suites tower,
THEhotel, and that became


the third spa on the property
overall, joining one in the
original hotel and the four-
star winner at the Four
Seasons. Financial figures
suggest that Vegas' enthtisi-
asm for the spa market is war-
ranted. According to an
industry survey, more than 36
million visits were made to
resort-hotel spas in 2003,
accounting for $4.6 billion in
revenue that year.
To get a piece of that siz-
able pie, spas continually
devise inventive ways to light-
en the burden on the cus-
tomer's body and spirit -
and wallet.
Among the more unusual
spa offerings in Las Vegas is
the Australian Dream Ritual
at the NIMGM Grand's spa. This


, millennia-old technique re-
lies on kodo massage. "It's a
,specific choreography, specif-
ic strokes that are combined
with products derived from
herbal and floral sources that
have been used medicinally
in Australia by 1/8 aboriginal
3/8 elders," said spa director
Rachel Knapp. The two-hour
ritual begins with a smudging
ceremony that includes burn-.
ing an indigenous herb, like
incense, along with playing
aboriginal music. Meanwhile,
the client's feet are soaked in
flowers to encourage relax-
ation.
That's followed by an exfo-
liation using desert salt and
then an application of several
types of mud, each with its
own beneficial property to

receives a vigorous scalp
massage. After a shower
comes the main massage and
finally, a reentry to the 21st
century with lemon myrtle
tea.. The price: $285 per per-
son, $530 per couple.
At Canyon Ranch, -the,
ancient culture is different
but the goal is the same.
Vibrating crystal.bowls, mim-
icking those made and used
by Tibetan monks, are tapped
with a mallet. The deep reso-
nant tones of the bowls are
meant to effect a vibrationall

manager Shawn Smith. This

cation of oils, reiki energy
work, inhalation therapy, and
jin shin jyutsu, an ancient
Japanese relaxation! tech-.
nique that encourages the
body to accept those bowl
vibrations, along with other
therapy. A 50-minute session
is $135 weekdays, $145 week-
ends.
At the Ritz-Carlton's Spa

tured attractions is the culla,

that has holes for drainage -

Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota County receives 25 Disney Store backpacks and lunch totes


Disney Store customers
help donate character-
themed supplies to
local children in need.

STAFF REPORT

Thanks to. Disney Store
and generous shoppers, Boys
& Girls Clubs of Sarasota
County recently received a
donation of 25 backpacks and
lunch totes as part of a
nationwide back-to-school
promotion held in.late July at
more than 300 Disney Stores
nationwide. Disney Store cus-
tomers were invited to pur-
chase two backpacks or two
lunch- totes at a discounted
two-for-one price, with one of
the items being donated to
Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota
County for a child in heed.
"We're very pleased to have
made a difference for kids on
a real grass-roots level by pro-
viding much-needed back-
to-school items," said Mario
Ciampi, president of Disney
Store.. '
"We'd like to thank our cus-
tomers, who were very gener-
ous in their donations and
our cast members, who work-
ed very hard to make our
back-to-school program a
great success."
Disney Store backpacks
and lunch totes are popular
with kids because they're fun,
colorful and functional. They
feature beloved Disney char-
acters, including Tinkerbell,
Minnie Mouse, JoJo (from
JoJo's Circus) and Disney
Princesses for girls, and The
Incredibles and Powver Rang-
ers for boys. Disney charac-
ters are especially comforting
to small children starting a
new school year- particular-
ly those beginning school for
the first time.
"We're extremely thankful
to Disney Store and its cus-

you have too much of it. At
the Bellagio, a portion of the
rambling, manicured pool
area is reserved for spa
clients.
During the outdoor Re-
vitalizing Sun Massage treat-
ment, soothing marble stones
are placed at strategic points
to cool the body.
A deep-tissue massage is
followed by a liberal applica-
tion of sunscreen so the client
can more safely enjoy being
poolside. The 55-minute ses-
sion is $200.
Meanwhile, at THEhotel's
Bathhouse in die Mandalay
Bay complex, there is the Sun


Rescue treatment, which
addresses harmful afteref-
fects of sun exposure. The full
50-minute treatment in-
cludes the application of
lotions that contain Vitamin
C, green tea extract, and pep-
permint, and a linen wrap.
Cost: $135.
A less expensive way to
deal with the Vegas sun might
be in the Bathhouse's misting
tan booth. For $35, the client
is bronzed in 30 seconds -
but it's just good for looks.
The faux tan doesn't pro-
tect you from the sun and the
usual SPF precautions are
required for sun exposure.

Scared and hungry, wandering around on a lonely road, this
little puppy was looking for someone to help him. He had just
about given up when he was found by a rescue person.
Hank craves attention, maybe because during his short life
he has had none. (Hank is 15 weeks old.) He would like to
spend the rest of his life showing you how friendly and lovable
he can be.
He knows he's not the cutest dog you've ever seen but he
probably is one of the sweetest. He wishes he could be some-
body's "special boy" and be a part of your family. He needs
someone to love him and take care of him like all the other
dogs that have their own people.
Hank has brown and white boxer-like markings and will be
a medium-size dog. He has an eye condition called Cherry Eye
that will be corrected before adoption. He will also have a med-
ical exam, shots and be neutered through Englewood Animal
Rescue Sanctuary (EARS).

what to train the kids on.
Maybe carpentry type stuff,
sewing or teaching. .
"Over the years I've
brought quite a few people.
Bonnie Hicks, she's a nurse.
Rachel Quirk was just down
there for a month teaching
the kids English. Debbie
Crawford, she works at AAA.
She goes down and helps
work with the kids.
"We were able to get Laine
;a visitor's .,visa-to come, and,
speak here. He lives there and
takes care of the children.
"Some of them have a
mother, but they're so poor
they can't feed them. There
are a couple that are totally
street kids. These kids have no
family. They have nothing.
They don't even have shoes.
"One of the children, Dan-
ny, 8, hopes to become adopt-
ed soon. His mother died a
year ago, she was very sick.
We don't know if he has any
family, or if he does, they don't
care."
McStravick is originally
from Maine, but she's lived in
Venice for 20 years.


Before moving to Florida,
she went to beauty school in
Maine. She operates A Clips
in Nokomis in the Palm Bay
Plaza. Her husband, Tom,
works for Ce-Max.
McStravick has adopted
two Haitian girls of her own,
Melila who is now 15, and
Medjina, who is 9. They both
go to Laurel-Nokomis School.
"They still have family in
Haiti, so we hope one day
they can go back down there
and help their people," Mc-
Stravick said. "It's a neat thing
because Melila is an honor
student. They both- had no
education, so they had a lot of
catching up to do."
Neither girl spoke any Eng-
lish when theyfirst arrived, so
they had to learn to read and
write from scratch.
"They're doing good," Mc-
.Stravick said.

orphanage, visit gabriels-

Vacation Bible Schoolers


donate porch benches


STAFF REPORT

Children attending the
Church of the Redeemer
Vacation Bible School- in
downtown Sarasota are learn-
ing what church leaders hope
will be lifelong lessons in
community caring and fel-
lowship. Aug. 1-5, Vacation
Bible School students ages
4-11 painted and decorated
70 front porch benches for
residents of the Habitat for
Humanity community, Jor-
dan's Crossing.
On the underside of each
bench, the children left an'
impression of their hand-
prints to symbolize the loving
passage of the benches from
their house of God to the indi-
vidual homes of the current
and future families living at
Jordan's Crossing.
Operating in partnership
with Sarasota Habitat for
Humanity, Redeemer Bible
School leaders devised a pro-
ject for the weeldong school
that would not only provide
the youngsters with a fun,
age-appropriate project, but
would also provide them a
tangible and meaningful way
to learn about helping others
in their community.
The idea of creating porch
benches for people who are
not even accustomed to hav-
ing their own home reson-
ated with Redeemer Bible
School leaders, according to
Jacki Boedecker, Director of
Christian Education. "Habitat
is doing such a fantastic job
at Jordan's Crossing provid-
ing the necessities of hous-
ing for our community,"
Boedecker said, 'At Redeem-
er we wanted to contribute
something that went beyond
the basics something that
would infuse the homes
with a strong symbol of fami-
ly and sharing with neigh-
bors."
Soon, the. entire church


Children at Church of the Redeemer Vacation Bible School
painted and decorated 70 benches for residents of Habitat for
Humanity homes.


parish was involved in the
project.
A team of Church of the
Redeemer men, headed by
Chuck Miller, Junior Warden,
built by hand seventy front
porch benches, donating not
only their time and energy,
but purchasing all the bench-
building materials out of their
own funds. On a recent
Sunday on the church lawn
after mass, churchgoers of all
ages from 3 to 83 rolled
up dress shirt sleeves and
worked up a sweat in the hot
summer sun sanding down
all the benches in preparation
for the bible school students
to begin their painting and
decorating.
Indeed, communities
across the United States are
increasingly aware of the
advantages of neighbors
knowing one another. In
Phoenix, Ariz., in 2004; the
mayor of the city established
a Front Porch Initiative to
foster community awareness
and interaction and as a tool
to combat crime in neighbor-
hoods. The idea was that
people and families relaxing,
on their front porches, ex-
changing pleasantries with
..,neighbors as they water their


lawns or walk their dogs,
community bonds will tight-
en and neighborhood watch-
fulness will increase.
On Sunday, Aug. 7, after
the children finished their
week-long bench project and
Vacation Bible School, John
Schaub, member of the board
of directors and past presi-
dent of Habitat for Humanity
of Sarasota, will attend the 9
a.m. service at the church to
acknowledge the completion
of the bench project for the
Jordan's Crossing homes and
thank the Redeemer commu-
nity for its contribution.
On Sunday, Aug. 14 after
the 9 a.m. mass, church vol-
unteers will transport the
benches to Jordan's Crossing.
The Jordan's Crossing
community of homes is in
North Sarasota near Tuttle
Elementary School. Habitat
is constructing approximate-
ly 70 homes at this location,
all slated to be finished in
2007.
For more information
about the front porch bench
project or the Church of the
Redeemer Vacation Bible
School, call the office at 955-
4263 or visit redeemersara-
