Bloody Tuesday: One year later


Complaints and concerns
continue on the
anniversary of the
management purge at the
Venice Eastside Wastewater
Treatment Plant.
BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Tuesday marks the first anniver-
sary of what some Venice employ-
ees have nicknamed "Bloody
Tuesday."
At the request of City Manager
Marty Black, council approved
eliminating 16 utilities department
jobs on Tuesday, Aug. 17, 2004, and
immediately put 13 people .out of
work just four days after
Hurricane Charley devastated the
region. ,
Budget reasons were the excuse,
but many people point to years of
controversy at the Venice Eastside
Wastewater Treatment Plant. There
were multiple allegations of envi-
ronmental violations, federal
charges. and a plea agreement
stemming from an accused cover-
up, and employee complaints
almost too numerous to count
about their supervisors and direc-
tors. '
A $187,000 utilities department
budget deficit that created a "city
emergency" was all that was need-
ed to legally get rid of the man-
agers.
Black's management team hired
Operations -Management
International, a private utilities
company, to run, the utilities
department and then fired 13
employees, including Utilities
Director John Lane and Assistant
Utilities Director Pat Wilson.
The private contract directly
saved the city about $350,000 this
year. OMI's $750,000 contract
requires it to do 'the job of 16
employees who were costing the
city $1.1 million in salaries and
benefits. Three of the positions
were vacant.
One year into a five-year con-
tract with OMI, problems remain
at the city's treatment plant. Venice
is struggling to hire in sewage plant
operators; union complaints have
been lodged against OMI's man-
agement style; and the city has
issued the company a "non-perfor-
mance notice."

City finally answers AFSCME's call


Venice makes salary and
health insurance offers to
parks, garbage, utility and
other, workers who have
been without a contract
since last October.
BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

City Manager Marty Black has
made it no secret that he wanted to
finalize a union contract with
police officers before wading into
negotiations with the American
Federation of State, County and
Municipal Employees Local 1718.
However, all of that attention
paid to the Fraternal Order of
Police has led to a declaration of
impasse and left AFSCME workers
who runVenice's water and sewage
plants, pick up residents' garbage,
fix city streets and do just about
every other city job that doesn't
involve a firefighter or police offi-
cer waiting for negotiations to
resume.
And like police officers, today


marks 317 days working under an
expired contract for those 140 city
employees.
The city manager, who rarely
attends bargaining sessions,
showed .p, at the one with
AFSCME on Friday'morning to
present a new health insurance
package that represents a radical
departure from official policy the
past year.
Black is backing off of the
requirement that .every city
employee pay for health insurance
coverage.
"You guys are the first out of the
box. This is a real change in philos-
ophy," Black said to the AFSCME
bargaining team.
Opt-out option
Venice had been pushing all
union and nonunion employees to
pay $40 per month for health
insurance this year and $60 a
month next year. Previously, insur-
ance coverage was free. All
nonunion workers and the fire-
fighters already have agreed to this,
with law enforcement unions and
AFSCME still in negotiations.


"It's like herding cats
sometimes to keep the
public out of the pet
projects."
City Manager Marty
Black, explaining to
AFSCME the city's
limited budget

Most of the AFSCME workers
make less than $30,000 a year -
many less than $25,000 and
their bargaining team. pointed out
that many workers will opt out of
insurance coverage in favor of that
extra $40 per month.
The city's proposal would make
individual health' insurance free
during 2004-2005 to ,any worker,
making less than $38,000 a year. It
will cost $40 a month for those
making $38,000 or more.
In the next two years, employee
costs would be:

zoning


district up


for a vote

Planning commission to
review ordinance that would
allow seven-story buildings,
as well as a 400-acre
annexation along Laurel
Road and new overlay
district on U.S. 41 Business.
BY lJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

All of the talk, speculation and
debate about Mike Miller's redevel-
opment project on Venice island
becomes official at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday.
Venice Planning Commission will
review proposed zoning changes
that would allow the president of
Waterford Companies to build a
retail, hotel and residential district
on 3.5 acres of property on the island
sandwiched between the
Intracoastal Waterway and Venice
Avenue Bridge.
That isn't all being placed in front
of planning commission. Members
also must decide on a nearly 400-
acre annexation of vacant land on
Laurel Road for residential develop-
ment, the new Venice Urban Design
Overlay District along U.S. 41
Business-.and a pair of variance
requests to reduce setbacks for
mobile homes.
At the top of public discussions
for two months, planning conmmis-
sion will be the first voting board to
-review Miller's zoning district that
would allow a 140-unit
hotel/condo, multiple retail shops,
waterfront restaurant, two-story
parking garage and seven-story
buildings. Business leaders have
voiced support for the project,
while many residents have fears the
project is too large and cause traffic
problems.
The staff report, prepared by
Planning and Zoning Director Tom
Slaughter, states, that Waterford
Companies revised its initial propos-
al, which is being called.Mixed Use
Activity Center District.
Slaughter points out that an alter-
nate version, developed by city staff,
also will be up for a vote.

STAFF WRITER

Too much fatty food and
not enough activity are caus-
ing obesity in children to
reach epidemic levels,
according to the Centers for
Disease Control.
A few simple changes in
habit, though, can go a long
way toward fighting obesity,
health experts say. Shopping
for more healthful foods, cut-
ting out eating in front of the
television and planning activ-
ities that involve exercise can
all help. '
The trick is to get everyone
involved.
"Every effort should be
made to get the whole family
involved in the treatment and


prevention of obesity," said
Leanne Litterell, nutritionist
for the Peace River Regional
Medical Center in Port
Charlotte.
"Children need to work on
becoming nutrition con-
scious, and parents need to
promote an active environ-
ment at home and at school,"
she said.
This is not always easy in a
world where everyone is busy
and opportunities for getting


unhealthy food are all too
convenient., With 24-hour
drive-through restaurants, it's
easy to eat as much at 2 a.m.
as at 2 p.m.
'A working parent who is
budgeting time and money is
presented with fast-food
choices which are laden with
high calories, sugars, very lit-
tle nutrition and a vegetable
selection that consist of
french ,fries and ketchup,"
said registered dietitian Kathy
Nanolick of Sarasota
Memorial Hospital.
It starts at home
Much of a child's respect
for food begins in the home,
and it's a good idea to involve
children in selecting and
preparing meals.
"Keeping the house
stocked with healthy food
and snack ideas quickly
improves the child's diet,"

make changes in children's
eating habits when you
include their ideas."

Old house settling in at new location


BY HARY BERRY
CORRESPONDENT


Workers repositioned the
Lord house on its new lot
Wednesday and began dig-
ging in the foundation pillars.
There will be a total of 25.
These pillars just sit on the
ground with no mortar. The
house will be tied down with
16 straps.
It sat on three sets of crib-
bing, and the workers started
to let it down Thursday morn-
ing, dropping the north end
first. It's cribbed in the center
of the wall.


They dropped the south-
west comer next, and then
the south east, lowering it 6
inches each drop. Because
the house sits on three points
of cribbing it couldn't twist or
break.
They moved the jack from
one set of cribbing to the next
and gently set the house
down.
This house is a beautiful
antique and the view from the
windows is a fine sight to see.
Venice can be proud to have
saved it from being destroyed.
Finally, this old house has a
home.


Going down a little at a time.

Public invited to workshops for

future open space and park program
Sarasota County residents are invited to a series of
workshops to discuss future neighborhood park land, open
space and green space issues. The county is considering
initiating an open space/neighborhood park land program, and
wants community input.
The following workshops will be held from 6-7 p.m.:
*Tuesday, Aug. 16
Nokomis Community Center
234 Nippino Trail E., Nokomis.
Wednesday, Aug. 17
North Port Public Library
13800 Tamiami Trail, North Port
The workshops will help determine what types of properties
and specific qualities should be considered to qualify for the
green space program. County staff will give a brief overview of
how the proposed program would operate, and ask residents
their opinions on what types of properties need protection, and '
how they define a neighborhood park. Participants will then be
asked to suggest ideas for the program's scope and criteria
and rank them in order of importance.
This is an opportunity for residents to help develop a program
during its initial planning stages. Residents requiring special
accommodations at the open house should contact Natural
Resources at (941) 861-6230. For more information about the
workshops, contact the Sarasota County Call Center at (941)

Still no agreement on teacher pay raises


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares @venicegondolier.com
rt Hardy, an attorney representing the Sarasota County
School Board, looks over some paperwork during Wednesday's
negotiation session on a new teacher's contract with represen-
tatives of the Sarasota Classified/Teachers Association.The
.inion is thinking over a 4.25-percent raise proposal, with
jinother negotiating session scheduled for Wednesday.


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER

Over the past several
months the Sarasota Classi-
fied/Teachers Association and
the school board have met 17
times to negotiate contract
language changes. They have
agreed on 34 of them.
The two issues that have
been discussed for months
but not yet resolved are the
teacher duty day and the
salary raise for the year.
Both SC/TA and the school
board are eager to reach an
agreement, since the pro-
posed raise will be in effect for
the school year already in
progress.
Friday the board reps and
SC/TA met yet again to work
through on two issues. And
once again they left the bar-
gaining table without a deal.
Salary increase
The initial raise proposal,
from SC/TA was a 7-percent
across-the-board pay in-
crease. Last week the school
board came back with a 3-
percent counteroffer, which
SC/TA immediately shot
down, countering with a 5.5-
percent demand.
Friday it was the school
board's turn again. Board rep-
resentatives handed SC/TA a
new 4.25-salary increase pro-
posal.
The SC/TA was not satis-
fied, but Executive Director
Barry Dubin told the board
his members were not ready
to respond.


10 Ways to Save Money

When Buying New Construction


Venice Area Although most homes for
sale are resales, one out of four homebuyers
purchases a new home. Which is better:
existing or new? The right answer of
course, is up to you. Both resales and new
homes offer advantages. Existing homes
are less expensive on average, and are
generally closer to, and enjoy the warmth
and surroundings of established neighbor- .,,
hoods often % ith mature landscaping.
Ne\\ homes, on the other hand, offer inno-
vative use of space, greater energy efficiency
and choices of options and upgrades. Every
thing is new and modem. '
Most people consider both new and exist-
ing homes before they decide to purchase.

"I need some time to digest
this," Dubin told the board'
DLty day
The proposed longer duty
day would require teachers
and other staff to be on cam-
pus an extra half hour or
hour, depending on the posi-
tion. The extra time would be
used for teacher training. This
would not lengthen the stu-
dent school day.
Accompanying this longer
day would be a proposed 7.1-
percent increase in pay.
This was discussed again
on Friday.
The. school board's new
proposal made only minor
changes. The biggest of these
would be the change from the
Oct. 1 starting date to January.
This proposal is heavily
dependent on the passage of
an extension of the one-mill
school property tax. The arti-
cle states that if the referen-
dum is not approved next
NMarch then this extended
work day will be dropped, as
well as the 7.1-percent salary
increase. It would not effect
the yearly salary increase,
however.
This issue appears to be
very close to a conclusion.
"I think we are getting
there ," said Art Hardy, attor-
ney for the school board.
Another negotiating ses-
sion is scheduled for
Wednesday at 3 p.m.
Representatives from both,
sides hope to reach agree-
ment on these matters at that
time.

4A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN SUNDAY, AUG. 14, 2OO~


Double doors are out at Luna Ristorante


The ARB tosses in
several stipulations in
approving changes to a
historic downtown
building.

BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

To the lay person, a door
is just a door.
For architectural experts
and historical preservation-
ists, a door speaks volumes
about a building's history.
That was the reason
Architectural Review Board
members decided the
replacement door at Luna
Risorante didn't quite fit.
Building owners Michael
and Cecilia Altieri proposed
the double, historic wooden
doors be replaced with a
single door that included a
sidelight.
ARB members pointed
out that architectural style
didn't exist until the 1970s -
a stark contrast to a historic
Venice building built in
1927.
"The whole reason that
we're here is to pass judg-
ment on a very historic
building," ARB chair Mary-
Horlick said at the hearing.
"And to be honest, the door
that is proposed with the
sidelight is totally inappro-
priate for this era."
The Altieris were repre-
sented by Michael
Pakledinaz of MHP
Renovations, which is han-
dling the project. Pakledinaz
agreed to the recommenda-
tions of ARB to center the
new door and fill in the
remaining space with fram-
ing instead of the sidelight
window.
Replacement of the doors
is needed because they no
longer will bolt shut, accord-
ing to Pakledinaz.
Luna Risorante, 200 St.
Augustine Ave., is undergoing
various renovations. Last year
the owners received ARB


approval on improvements to
the bathrooms, and more
changes are expected.
The Altieris purchased the
building in January from The
Venice Company for
$590,000, according to the
Sarasota County Property
Appraiser, after renting it for
years. Jean Trammell, presi-
dent of The Venice Company,
said earlier this year that Luna
would become the fifth build-
ing on Venice's registry of his-
toric buildings.
The sale of the building
closed on the same day
Trammell closed on the
neighboring property for $1.2
million. Trammell received
city council zoning approval
in January for a three-story,
mixed-use residential, retail
and office building with eight
condominium units.
Those site plans currently
are at the staff review level
and could come before the
planning commission in
September.
Venice Historical Archives
Director Dorothy Korwek
spoke up at the ARB meeting
and asked if the wooden
doors could be saved for the
archives. Pakledinaz expected
that the owners wouldn't have
a problem storing the doors
somewhere until space is
made at Venice Archives.
"Not very many historical,
architectural features in
Venice have been saved
because of room (at the
archives)," Korwek said.

North Porters want


what others want


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

When about 50 residents
and community leaders sat
down to talk about values and
the legacy they wish to leave
behind, North Portfound outit's
almost like the rest of the com-
munities in Sarasota County
On Tuesday, Sarasota
County Administrator James
Ley, county commissioners
and staff conducted a "com-
munity conversation" with
North Port residents at the
George Mullen Activity
Center.
Residents shared their
thoughts about what they
value in the community and
what legacy thdy want to
leave for future generations.
County commissioner Jon
Thaxton said he was amazed.
'I thought North Port
would be the break-out
group, but they want many of
the same things the other
communities wanted," he
said.
Thaxton said everyone
wants improvements to the
environment, quality schools
and governments that get
along with each other.
Residents also said they want
accountability and a better
tax base.
"What did surprise me was
nobody put up lower taxes,"
Ley said.
North Port Commissioner
Fred Tower II said both the
county and the city should
benefit from a relationship.
"My group brought many


city items that had some kind
of county relationship," Tower
said.
Ley said the county will use
this meeting as a way to mea-
sure not just North Port, bit
also what is valued by other
communities in the county."
Government systems seemi
to be detaching residents
from their responsibility, Ley
said.
"Maybe we should involVe
the people more," Ley said.
"They understand the prob-
lem."
Ley said that all over the
country, cities are made up'of
hundreds of thousands 6f
individuals rather than 'a
cohesive community.
"We're fighting a consumer
culture, where an individual
can order a car over the
Jnternet, or buy a hamburger
any way we want it," Ley said.
Compromise and workii*
together are what constitute a
democracy, Ley said.
"It is engaging the steward-
ship (of) the people," he said.
North Port resident Toip
Jones said he was glad tme
county took the time to corime
to the city, saying it showed
him the county has an inter-
est in what people in North
Port think.
The results, which will
include the input of 300 par-
ticipants gathered in meet-
ings throughout the county,
will be published in about a
month, Ley said.

At Sarasota Memorial. we're much more than a hospital. We're a community-owned hospital. So for
more than 75 years, we've been making decisions that put the community's needs first, not our own.
Unlike other area hospitals, we don't cut programs people need simply because they're unprofitable.
Instead, we bring superior, affordable health care to our neighbors and local businesses in meaningful
and innovative ways. And when we do turn a profit, we turn it back into the services you need.
Call 941-917-7777 or visit smh.com and get to know the only area hospital that operates strictly for
the common good. Which makes us uncommonly proud.

WATERFORD from page lA


However, in planning
commission meeting mate-
rials posted online and e-
mailed to media members,
none of the changes espe-
cially as it relates to height
restrictions and traffic con-
cerns were included.
Many anti-growth groups
have been pushing for city-
wide, 35-foot height limits.
The actual documents up
for a vote were not included,
either.
"While staff has prepared
different recommendations
for the planning commis-
sion's consideration, we are
requesting favorable consid-
erations for the stdff version,"
Slaughter wrote in the staff
report. "We believe the staff
version provides for greater
assurances to adjacent prop-
erty owners, residents and
city officials that the land
development scheme and
,binding commitments
offered through the master
conceptual development
plan rezoning application
process will be compulsory."
W' aterford's application to
actually use this zoning dis-
trict has been placed on hold
until city council either pass-
es or denies the new law.
Planning commission will
.suggest changes and make a
recommendation, but coun-
cil has the final vote.
VICA Annexation
,. A proposed 395-acre
annexation of 'undeveloped
land that stretches from
,Laurel Road south to 2662
,.Border Road is up for
approval after nearly two
years of pre-annexation
negotiations with City
Manager Marty Black. The
trustee property owner is
James Ritchey, and attorney
Jeff Boone is representing J&J
Homes.
Initial plans are to build a
residential development on
.the site.


The city has blamed delays
in creating the pre-annexa-,
tion agreement on Sarasota
County being slow to predict
the Jacaranda Road extension
route that will run through
the site to Laurel Road.
Multiple wetland areas
slowed the planning, and the
city has required J&J Homes
set-aside land needed for the
road, if the annexation is
approved.
This land also is connected
to the city's new Fire Station
No. 3 on Laurel Road.
J&J Homes donated 4 acres
to the city in January, and
council approved $157,000
toward building design last
week.
The donation is part of the
annexation deal, but it is
unclear what would happen
to the city's newest fire station
if council would reject the
annexation request.
Other items
Also on Tuesday's agenda:
VUD District -
Commission members are
expected to cast a final vote
on the proposed design and
appearance overlay district
along U.S. 41 Business from
Milan Avenue to Circus
Bridge.
Variances Two more
variances for mobile homes
are being proposed. The
variance at Harbor Lights
Mobile. Home Park would
reduce the required front
setback at Lot 60 from 10
feet to 4 feet, 10 inches, so a
new mobile home can be
installed.
The other at 159
Serpentine Drive of Venice
Bay Mobile Home Park would
reduce the required water-
front setback from 20 feet to
11 feet so it can place a new
mobile home.

"Parents have very valid
concerns about letting their

has become a safety issue,
just letting your child go put-

TREATMENT from page 1A

On top of all that, city
employees at the plant have
been working under an
expired contract for 317 days,
as their negotiations were
placed on the back burner in
favor of police officer contract
negotiations. Those police
negotiations have reached an
impasse, and it's up to city
council to impose an agree-
ment on patrol officers.


For now, the city manager
continues to sing the praises
of OMI, while members of the
American Federation of State,
County and Municipal
Employees Local 1718 union
question if this was a change
for the best.
"There were 13 people that
lost their jobs on Bloody
Tuesday," said Dennis
Rodriguez, chief union stew-
ard and a worker at the plant.
"OMI is contractually obligat-


ed to fill those positions, and
they have four people to take
the responsibilities of 13 peo-
ple. Just do the math."

Tired and stressed
Conditions at the treat-
ment plant have become too
much even for Troy Evans, the
noted whistleblower from
2001 who helped lead to
investigations by the Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection


and the Environmental
Protection Agency.
The city entered a guilty
plea June 15 on three counts
it violated environmental'
permits by discharging too
much treated wastewater
into Curry Creek and Knight
Trail Park near Laurel Road.
Sentencing by a federal judge
is expected to be handed
down Oct. 28, with Venice fac-
ing stricter regulations, mini-
mum fines of $110,000 and


the duty to assist in the prose-
cution of the "Executive
Group," an unnamed group
of managers and supervisors
who allegedly covered up the
violations.
Evans and two other work-
ers settled a lawsuit with the
city last year for $81,500 and
an apology letter saying their
"difficult work environment"
was mostly created by the for-
mer "management of the
Utilities Department and the


former City Manager,"
according to the letter.
The worst appeared to be
behind him, but Evans admit-
ted in an interview he was
wrong and too tired to con-
tinue fighting. After nearly
seven years with the city,
Evans quit his $17-an-hour
job a couple of weeks ago and
is looking to move on with his
life.

TREATMENT from page 6A


The former lead plant oper-
ator doesn't know if bringing
in OMI was the best decision.
"It was a situation where
they had to do something -
right, wrong or indifferent,"
Evans said. "You know, hind-
sight is 20-20. My understand-
ing of OMI's contract, they.
were to come in and do the
work of 16 positions. That's an
awful lot of work for four peo-
ple. It's just too much."
Too few workers
Not only does the treat-
ment plant have fewer man-
agers, it is in need of plant
operators to run the facility. At
last count, here are at least five
open jobs waiting to be filled.
Some union members
accuse the city of leaving the
spots open as a cost-saving
measure. Utility Manager
Chris Sharek, who's in charge
of all utilities personnel mat-
ters, said the real problem is
finding workers.
Sharek stressed that there
are enough certified operators
to meet permit requirements.
Venice must have the highest
level certified operator (A)
working 40 hours a week, and
at least one "C" level operator
working 24 hours a day.
"It is just really, really hard
right now to find a water oper-
ator anywhere in the state,"
Sharek said. "Everyone's look-
ing. They are just needed so
badly now all over, and that's
one.of the reasons we're hav-
ing trouble fulfilling the need."
Besides the issues sur-
rounding OMI and job com-
petition, the level of pay also
could be a contributing factor.
Venice entry-level plant oper-
ators make $10.15 an hour, are
bumped up to $12.92 an hour
with a "C" license, up to $13.84
with a "B" license and then
$15.34 with an "A" license.
Sarasota County starts its
treatment plant operators at
$16.16 an hour and tops them
out at $22.31 an hour.
OMI criticisms
Sharek issued a "non-per-
formance notice" to OMI on
Aug. 2 because there are "spe-
cific situations where OMI is
not clearly providing the ser-
vices and performance levels
outlined in the agreement."
Among those complaints
are the failure to meet compli-
ance standards, insufficient
staffing and getting involved
in employee discipline a
direct violation of union rules.
The notice has upset union
members because they've
been saying the same thing for
a year, said AFSCME President
Ralph Hamann. In fact, a
union steward was disciplined
for violating the chain of com-
mand when raising some of
these same concerns, he said.
Evans, who was not part of
the union, agreed with
Hamann and blames Sharek
for failing to provide adequate
oversight of OMI. Sharek was
the only wastewater utility
supervisor not fired last year,
and instead was promoted to
make sure OMI met all con-

tract stipulations.
"Chris (Sharek) is not a bad
guy," Evans said. "But as far as
being a boss, he's just not cut
out for it. You read that letter,
and if it says OMI is not doing
their job, than he isn't doing
his job.
"That's why this letter is a
slap in the face. These are all of
the things we've been telling
(Sharek) about for the last
year. Is he trying to save his
butt, or really trying to make
change? I don't know." '
Not that bad
Both Sharek and City
Manager Marty Black contin-
ue to stand by OMI, and classi-
fy the issues in the memo as
being not that bad.
"They've done a pretty
good job coming into a situa-
tion with a very dysfunctional
department," Black said.
OMI operations manager
Gerald Boyce said the memo is
"appropriate" at this time when
the annual review is being
done. The compliance issue
was because of a "clerical"
error, according to both Boyce
and Sharek, and many of the
personnel problems with
union workers are because of
"perception" issues.
The contract stipulates that
all discipline is to be handled
by the utilities manager, not


OMI. However, the private
company is responsible for
evaluating and improving the
"performance" of employees.
"When they question the
performance of our employ-
ees, the employees are taking
it as a personnel issue, but it is
about performance," Sharek
said. "The line between per-
formance and personnel is
blurred. As soon as it becomes
personnel, I am the one who is
to be involved."
Staffing levels provided by
OMI also are being addressed,
according to Boyce.
Year of success
Venice has established pos-
itive relationships with all of
the regulatory agencies, some-
thing Black, Boyce and Sharek
all point to as the greatest
achievement the past year.
The clerical error on com-
pliance issues over how much
treated wastewater was being
dumped into the environment
is the best example. Several
years ago, the city's equipment
was broken and supervisors
forged reports to cover up how
much water was being
dumped.
In the most recent case, the
numbers were added up
wrong. The city admitted to
this as soon as the mistake was
found and fixed the error.


I BONDING
Bonding is a relatively new technique which can achieve excellent
results. It can be used for beautiful and esthetic restorations of the
front teeth, but also has a variety of applications for the back teeth. We
can now use bondirig material to fill a tooth, close a space, restore a
fractured cusp or even bond a separate porcelain veneer to the tooth
surface.
The bonding process involves conditioning the enamel or underlying
dentine with a chemical solution. The enamel is then etched with a mild
acid that dissolves part of the enamel matrix, leaving thousands of tiny
micropores in the enamel surface. Left alone, the enamel would
remineralize, but a resin material is used to fill the pores while they are
present. The resin is then hardened using a light or chemicals, and
becomes mechanically locked into the enamel. Additional material is
then placed over this layer of resin, and a chemical bond forms
between the two. The results can be amazing.

"I take a great amount of
pride in our relationship with
the regulatory agencies, doing
the right thing on every take,"
Boyce said of OMI's reputa-
tion. "In an industry like this,
things happen. It's how you
handle those things that
makes a difference in who you,
are. In my opinion, we've done
everything to be in compli-
ance with all the rules."
Meeting environmental
compliance appears to be the
city manager's No. 1 goal and
what makes him happy.
There's also the work being
done by OMI to review the
water and sewage infrastruc-
ture for improvements and
repairs. Replacement of
Tarpon Center Drive sewage
lines an area of frequent
line breaks and sewage spills
- has gone out to bid. The
next major project will be to
reline manholes to stop
stormwater and ground water
from seeping into the pipes
and causing line breaks.
Despiteyall this, Venice can
opt out of the OMI contract if
it wanted to.
However, the city manag-
er's answer was shorti-s to
whether he would consider
canceling the contract before
the five years have expired.
"Not at this point," Black
said.


AFSCME from page 1A


Oct. 1, 2005 Free to
those with a base salary of less
than $30,000; monthly fees of
$20 for $30,000-$40,850; and
$40 a month for more than
$40,850.
Oct. 1, 2006 $10 a
month to those with a base
salary of less than $32,300;
monthly fees of $20 for
$32,300-$44,000; and $40 a
month for more than $44,0,00.
AFSCME said it needed
time to digest the offer, as well
as review the proposed raises
for union members. The city
and union will reconvene
Monday to resume talks.
Union officials did admit
they appreciated the city's
efforts.
, "People that come here,
with these starting salaries
and the cost of living here,
would opt out of health insur-
ance," local AFSCME
President Ralph Hamann said
at the meeting.
Herding cats
Some of the talks did
appear tense as the city
debated position descrip-
tions and proposed raises,
Venice offered retroactive
across-the-board raises of 3.5
percent during 2004, raises of
3.75 percent on Oct. 1, 2005,
and 4 percent Oct. 1, 2006.
Hamann pointed to com-
ments by Black that city work-
ers should live in North Port if
Venice is too expensive a
place to live. Recent studies
have shown less than 40 per-
cent of the Venice's 300-plus
workforce live within city lim-
its.
The city manager tried to
laugh the comment off, cor-
recting Hamann to say those
comments came during an
employee meeting and not at
the bargaining table.


"I didn't say that at the
(bargaining) table; I said that
at an employee meeting,"
Black said. "I wouldn't say that
at the bargaining table."
AFSCME Vice President
Tim Merritt questioned the
raise amounts, especially
when both the firefighter and
police officer unions are see-
ing offers closer to 5 and 6
percent per year.
According to the city's cur-
rent salary schedule, entry-
level firemedics make $27,485
per year and top out at
$46,639 and entry-level police
officers at $33,322 and top out
at $49,249 all within six
years based on annual step
increases.
Entry-level drinking water
technicians start at $21,119 a
year and top out at $30,833,
parks workers at $19,715 with
a top-out of $28,784, and
refuse truck drivers/collec-
tors start at $24,235 year and
stop at $35,382. These annual
increases also are spread out
over a longer period of time
than police and firefighters, in
many cases taking a decade
or longer.
Black talked about
Monday's annual budget
workshop, where council
members must approve or
deny about $1.5 million
worth of unfunded projects.
Various community groups
seeking new parks, historic
preservation projects and
other items from the city have
cut into the budget, Black
said.
"It's like herding cats some-i
times to keep the public out
of the pet, projects," Black
said,

ues Wednesday. The 5 p.m.
match has Verot playing
Berkeley. The 7 p.m. match

Lucian Collins throws on the
sidelines, waiting for his turn
to get in.


Overall, Nick Coleman has
been pleased with the
progress his Venice High foot-
ball program has made dur-
ing the first two weeks of
summer practice.
However, the Indians at
least the offense took a
step backwards in Friday
night's scrimmage under the
lights at Powell-Davis
Stadium.
Blown assignments and
fumbles had the blood pres-
sure rising before lightning
cut short the night's activities.
"Our defense is pretty
tough," Coleman said. "They
can frustrate you. But we
need to get 11 people doing
what they're supposed to (on
offense). We need everybody
to focus one play at a time."
Yardage was tough to
come by against John
Peacock's hardened D.
"We put the ball on the
ground too much," Coleman


added.
It didn't help when Pete
Dombroski and his lightning
meter pulled everyone off the
field. The Indians had only
gotten in half a night's work.
"What can you do about
Mother Nature?," Coleman
asked. "We thought we would
answer a lot of questions
(Friday) night. We'll work
hard Monday and Tuesday
and lighter Wednesday and
Thursday."
Then comes the big night.
Friday will be the Kickoff
Classic at Lemon Bay.
"We've made some
tremendous strides so far,"
Coleman said. "We need to
stay focused and keep work-
ing hard."

The Linebacker Club will
hold its first meeting of the
season at noon Tuesday .at
Buffalo Bill's Restaurant in the
Holiday Inn on the U.S. 41
Bypass in Venice.
The Linebacker Club is in
its eighth year and is open to
anyone interested in Venice
High football and local youth
sports. Meetings feature a
video of the previous week's
game highlights, comments
from VHS head coach Nick
Coleman, insights into
upcoming opponents from
assistant coaches, and pre-
sentations of awards for the
Player of the Game, Special
Teams 'Player of the Game,
and Practice Player of the
Week.
Meetings will be held every
Tuesday during the regular
season and will continue
through the playoffs. Cost of
the meeting is $12 and
includes a buffet lunch.
This is the first year the
Linebacker Club will be meet-
ing off the island.

club, please contact Mickey
Lawrence at 488-6547.

with a revamped running

If I were king of the forest...


Michael Lamond
THE ZONE


What annoys you most
about golf courses? I have a
few pet peeves. Just like the
cowardly lion in the "Wizard
of Oz," I want to be king of the
forest. In my little world there
would be no room for bad
golf course design.
The New York Times says it
has all the news that's fit to print
The New York Post is said to
carry all the news that's print to
fit I sometimes feel that golf
course architects, both real and
imagined, build golf courses in
reverse. There are several cours-
es and nines that, I believe, are
built in spaces that are entirely
too small.
The first local offender is
the third nine at Pelican
Pointe. It looks as though the
architect squeezed two tons
of dirt into a one-ton pickup
- short holes that are not
very challenging followed by
long holes that are complete-
ly ridiculous. The ninth hole
of the third nine at Pelican is a
prime example of bad course
design. A par 5 double dogleg
with no landing area off the
tee and hazard as far, as the
eye can see. It's really sad
when a good idea goes awry
and I wish that were the case
here. If you ever had a chance
to play the original 18 at
Pelican Pointe before the
deforestation took place, you
know what a great track it
was.
I said was.
The first time I played it the
course was fantastic, howev-
er, after the housing was put
in, the course lost all charac-
ter. It seemed that every piece
of lumber had been removed.
There were several holes I
didn't even recognize. A golf
course can either be an
amenity or a drawing card.
Now it's just another track.
My next offender is Lake
Venice Golf Club. I know how
much work has been done to
improve this local club. I play

there regularly and I like it.
But there is one thing I wish
they would do away with post
haste. All greenside bunkers
at Lake V have the most
annoying ring of rough you've
ever seen. Locals call it by two
different names. Either the
Barry grass or, my favorite,
the Knotted.
I believe that this is
because Barry. and Dave
Knott invented it.
If you have been in this area,
you already knowwhat I'm talk-
ing about. If not here is an
example. You can draw two lies
in the. knotted, bad and worse.
The bad lie is buried in two to
four inches of deep rough
greenside. The worse lie is the
one where there is not enough
grass and you need to hit a deli-
cate shot out of something that
isn't grass or sand. It's a combi-
nation of both.
I would rather hit one hun-
dred bunker shots before hav-
ing this lie. It seems as though
this would be easy enough to fix,
just break out a mower and go
to town.
Speaking for most players I
know, this stuff is for the birds.
Lake Venice can be very tough
around the greens anyway, so
this is overkill to me, and in my
perfect world it would be gone.
I could go on and on about
other courses and I will, but
not today. See ya.

Water board sets up expansion deal


A plan is being pieced together to provide for the
borrowing of water to meet needs until the plant
project is completed in 2009.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

The four-county Peace
River water supply authority
took some fledgling steps
recently to begin growing
from an agency that operates
a single water plant to one
that helps develop new
sources and interconnects
them throughout the region.
One of those steps, taken
by the Peace River Manasota
Regional Water Supply
Authority at a special meeting
Aug. 3, cleared the way for
Charlotte County and Punta
Gorda to apply for grants to
finance a long-planned inter-
connect of their water sys-
tems.
The interconnect could
not only provide a backup
source in the event of a disas-
ter, but it could also supply
water to fill a temporary
shortage that could crop up
before the water authority
completes a major expansion
of its water plant in 2009.
That step was taken when
the authority's board explicit-
ly affirmed its intent to con-
sider the local interconnect to
be just as important as anoth-
er major regional intercon-
nect project the extension
of the authority's 20-inch
pipeline in DeSoto County to
Punta Gorda.
The authority board's sup-
port for the Charlotte County-
Punta Gorda interconnect
will enable the project to
receive funding under the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District's grant
program for "regional water
supply projects."
"That's very significant,"
said Bruce Loucks, Charlotte
County administrator, in
comments after the meeting.
"That puts us in line to get
grants. The project needed to
be blessed by the authority."
Taps for the gap
The discussion of the
interconnect came during the
authority's meeting held in


Port Charlotte to iron out the
authority's so-called "gap"
plan and a contract to allo-
cate the costs of a $130 mil-
lion water plant expansion
project.
The authority tabled
approval of the contract until
after a workshop is held to
allow county administrators
to review the deal, which also
divvies up the additional
water from the project.
The project calls for the
Peace River Water Plant to be
expanded from 18 million
gallons per day to 32.7 mgd
by 2009.
The "gap" plan is needed to
stave off a temporary. water
shortage projected to crop up
before the water plant expan-
sion project is completed.
The plan calls for the
authority to tap Punta Gorda's
Shell Creek, North Port's Coco
Plum Waterway and Sarasota
County's Carlton wellfield for
up to 5 mgd, until the plant
expansion is online.
The authority board has
discussed its support for
Charlotte County's intercon-
nect with Punta Gorda in gen-
eral terms in the past. But
those discussions "didn't pro-
vide the right words the water,
management district needed
to hear," Loucks said.
Having the authority spon-
sor the local interconnects as
a "regional" project now gives
the interconnects a higher
ranking for the water district
grants, he said.
Finally
The city and county have
discussed the need for the
interconnect since the 1980s,
said Steve Adams, Punta
Gorda Utilities director.
"We're just finally reaching
the point where it's going to
happen," he said.
Pat Lehman, authority
executive director, said the
Punta Gorda interconnects
were among many potential
interconnects now under dis-
cussion.
Other potential intercon-


nects include ones linking
water utilities in Englewood
and the city of Sarasota with
Sarasota County's system,
Lehman said.
However, the Punta Gorda
interconnect now poses
greater significance because
of the authority's plan to tap
the city's supply to fill the
"gap.")
Authority member Shan-
non Staub, a Sarasota County
commissioner, declared that
both of the Punta Gorda
interconnects should be con-
sidered one project.
She pointed out that the
line between Charlotte
County and Punta Gorda
would take a shorter, more
direct route. That makes it
easier for officials to "get it
done," she said.
"I see both these intercon-
nects as totally integrated
with what the authority is
planning," Staub added. "I
think they're both equally
important."
Scalping?
Charlotte County Com-
missioner Adam Cummings
recalled the authority had
previously agreed to support
both projects.
But Cummings also reiter-
ated the authority's position
Wednesday to more explicitly
convey the authority board's
support for the interconnects.
Cummings also told the
authority that Charlotte
County remains concerned
about the authority's "gap"
plan. The plan fails to state
what happens if the potential
additional sources don't
become available in time, he
said.
If the new water isn't avail-
able, the county is concerned
the authority will scalp water
off from unused portions of
the counties' allocations.
That would reduce the reli-
ability of the water supply
from 95 percent to 71 percent.
Charlotte County, which
has paid for more than 70
percent of the water plant, is
the authority's biggest cus-
tomer. So the county would
bear the brunt of that risk,
Cummings said.
He suggested that no
county should be forced to


give up its reserve water
capacity without compensa-
tion.
Cutting it close
The schedules for bringing
the new water sources online
cut pretty close to the time
the water will be needed.
Punta Gorda is currently
working to modify its existing
plant to increase pumping
from 5.4 mgd to 10 mgd.
Once the plant's new capacity
is approved by the
Department of
Environmental Protection,
the city will apply to the water
management district for a
permit for the increased with-
drawals.
The city expects to com-
plete that process by 2008.
The city won't need all of
its 10 mgd capacity until
about 2014, Adams said.
However, what remains
uncertain is whether the city
can make the 2008 projected
completion date, he said.
North Port and Sarasota
County are working through

require the counties to give a
60-day notice of the intent to
veto a project and a nonbind-
ing arbitration process.
The authority discussed
eliminating its "weighted
vote" system that gives the
biggest customer, which is
Charlotte County, extra
weight in votes on mainte-
nance and operations bud-
gets. Cummings said in 10
years as an authority mem-
ber, the county has never
needed to use its weighted
vote to break a tie on a budget
decision: "I can't think of any
reason why we need it."
Manson also suggested a
couple of options for ways to
store unused water left over
as a margin between the
amount that the members are
allocated and the amount
they actually use.
Currently, the authority
customers combined con-
sume about 15 mgd, leaving
the authority with a 3 mgd
surplus.
The authority supported
one option that called for its
members to be offered the
chance to join a surplus water
"pool" on a voluntary basis.
Pool members could receive
certain percentages of the
reserve water based on how
much surplus they con-
tributed.
"It certainly is a more effi-
cient system than we have
right now," Cummings said.
The authority scheduled a
workshop to finalize the con-
tract for 10 a.m. Aug. 29 in the
Holiday Inn at Lakewood
Ranch east of Sarasota. The
board will then hold a special
meeting to adopt the con-
tract.
The contract would then
be submitted for each county
commission's approval in
time to be signed in October.

Crist files

against utility

rate hikes

STAFF REPORT

Attorney General Charlie:
Crist has filed petitions withi
the Public Service Com-:
mission to intervene on'
behalf of Florida consumers
and taxpayers, opposing,
large rate hikes requested by
the state's two largest elec-;
tric utilities.
Crist said the increases pro-.
posed by Florida Power & Light
Co. and Progress Energy Florida,
Inc. that would affect some 70;
percent of Florida's electric con-
sumers are excessive and unjus-:
tified. The proposed increases,
would not only affect millions of,
Floridians directly, but the;
increases to thousands of'
Florida businesses will also lead'
to higher costs on goods and'
services for Florida consumers. 1
"The rate increases being;
sought by these power com-:
panies are out of line," said!
Crist. "The utility companies'
are entitled to make a profit,;
but not exorbitant profit!
borne on the backs of our,
people and ourbusinesses." ,
. The attorney general;
moved to intervene after re-,
ceiving requests to do so from'
AARP and the Florida Retail
Federation, which together!
represent more than 2.7 mil-'
lion Florida residents and:
businesses.
Crist previously fought to
block improper utility rate
hikes. As a member of the
state Senate in 1997, he per-;
sonally sued to block imple-
mentation of a rate hike thei
PSC had granted to Florida
Power Corporation (prede-
cessor of Progress Energy).
The lawsuit contributed to
the defeat of the rate increase.
The companies' rate hike
requests come on the heels of
a recent PSC decision that
allows them to charge their
customers to recover the utili-.
ties' repair costs associated;
with last year's hurricane sea-,
son.

OUR VIEW


From the middle of nowhere to the middle of ...


T he North Port City Commission has
given the go-ahead to the next step for
Thomas Ranch. Does that mean hous-
es will soon be sprouting on the landscape?
No, that's still a fairly long way off. But it does
mean that the owner of Thomas Ranch is not
standing still or spinning his wheels.
Some day, maybe over 20 years, Thomas
Ranch will, in all probability, add 15,000
homes to North Port. That's almost as many
as are there are now, more than in Venice or
South Venice. And if you think all those new
residents won't have an impact on us, think
again.
Thomas Ranch is another expansion of
what was once a sparsely populated area of
Southwest Florida. As it comes so will


Babcock Ranch. So will Murdock Village. So
will Isles of Athena. And so will developments
to our east and north.
It's all almost too much to fathom. We have
difficulty comprehending how it can all hap-
pen, how all these new residents are going to
have all the amenities they will require.
North Port has approved the Thomas
Ranch concept plan. The commission will
have to approve Thomas Ranch plans many
more times. If other developments serve as a
guide, the reality years from now may look
very different from the current plan.
Stan Thomas purchased the nearly 8,000-
acre Taylor Ranch in 2001 for $78 million. A
year later, over Sarasota County's objections,
North Port annexed the parcel.


Thomas' Fourth Quarter Properties' pro-
ject, known as the West Villages, will be eight
villages, each a planned development, each
probably going to a different developer. Each
village will have several hundred acres of
homes, shops, offices, parks. The project will
probably have a couple of sub fire stations, a
sub police station and schools. When, it's
complete, it may be part of North Port, but
everything residents need may be available
within the Ranch.
One developer, DiVosta Homes, showed off
its plans for one of the villages Island Walk
-which could hold 1,869 homes. DiVostawill
be back, seeking further approval, as it gets
ready to clear land and begin building infra-
structure and homes. Sam Rodgers Inc. has its


concept,for Gran Paradiso with an equal
number of homes before the North Port
Planning Department.
It would be great if the city were to expand
one step at a time, but that's not possible.
Instead, it's a run, with the steps going in sev-
eral directions at once. The city and the area
need to keep up. And that could be the prob-
lem approving taxes and infrastructure
that keep up with the population.
Joan McGill, Manatee Community
College-Venice's campus executive officer,
says its location was selected 20 years ago to
be equally convenient to Venice, North Port
and Englewood. Little did its founders think,
we'd guess, that someday some of its stu-
dents would be walking to school.

(COLUJ .J1i T

Shannon Staub is not one
to sit still. She is a commis-
sioner who certainly is worth
what we are paying for, as she
aggressively pushes for good
things for our county.
Certainly it is easier being-a
commissioner when taxes are
going down, expenses are
being held at ba\ and revenue
is pouring in like the darn
broke. Nonetheless, there are
a lot of demands to the job.
She outlined the three
things that seem to be on
most of her constituents'
minds: the pace of growth --
gen&rally, how to plan and
control it to match resources;
transportation, including all
,of the local and state roads;
and the supply of water.
There are other hot issues
the commissioners are work-
ing on hard, like environmen-
tally sensitive lands and
affordable housing, which,
sometimes gets confused
with workforce housing.
She talked about the con-
tinuing saga of the regional
water authority and how it is
moving forward to meet the
needs of the region. The chal-
lenge is that some areas, like
Charlotte and North Port,
have needs exceeding what
they have planned, and that
makes for some some tense
negotiations. She is optimistic
it will be solved in the months
ahead.
When it's finished we will
have a loop system of water
from DeSoto to Sarasota,
south to Englewood and over
to Charlotte and back to
DeSoto, so that each area will
be able to share water
depending on its needs. I
I asked about the develop-
ment of a large reservoir to
augment the Peace River
agreement and other sources,
and she said there were many
different properties they were
looking at to accomplish this
but has been agreed on yet.


She was excited about


extending the Venice Avenue
Gateway theme from
Jacaranda Boulevard all the
way to River Road, with some
changes. She was a little con-
cerned that the plantings
have not been kept up, and I
tend to agree.
The :transportation chal-
lenge is a big one, and some
things are being done. Center
Road has been bid out (of
course, I thought it had been
last year, too). Hopefully we
will see work being done in
October. I
She was more optimistic
on widening the bypass, as
the MPO has moved the pro-
.ject to the top of its list and
seemhi to have a better line on
possible additional funding
from the state.
The Pinebrook Road pro-
ject is moving at an incredibly
slow pace but is in the devel-
oper's hands. If it only could
be done as fast as the old
Venice Elementary School
tear-down..
SWe talked a little about
pressuring to get our fair
share of federal' transporta-
don funds. She told me about
what we have since read -
about the efforts in Congress
to move us from a minimum
of 90.5 percent of what we put
in to 92 percent. Of course, for
some reason I think we
should get 100 percent of
what we put in what a con-,
cept. The states that' get our
* money are balking at 92 per-
cent, so I'm not sure who has
enough votes to make a
change.
Border Road, which has
had a miserable, small piece
that has not been paved, is
finally under contract to .be
completed. The intersection
at Laurel and Knights Trail is
even being studied to be
upgraded.
We talked some about
workforce or affordable hous-
ing. I have felt the county
blew an opportunity with the
North Port lots, although
Shannon told me it was a case
of North Port not letting any
of them go. The county has
set some aside for schools but
can't get North Port to help. It
is very sad to see the likes of
Habitat for Humanity not get-
ting any of those.
She felt we would have to
make changes to impact fees

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Look the Trojan horse in the mouth


Editor:
If Venice City Council members want to "hear people talk,"
why don't they hold occasional "hearings," dtiring the daytime
and at night, to allow people to voice their opinions? At pre-
sent, one has to sit for hours listening to the council agenda
before being able to speak.
Height restrictions, and the gradual encroachment of
Waterford (which appears to want to build seven- or eight-
story buildings everywhere), are of primary importance, and
deserve a thorough airing.
Such hearings would allow citizens who are not members of
the favored few to voice an opinion on the future, overlay dis-
,trict and height restrictions. This should be done during the
season, so citizens spending theirwinters here could also offer
input.
A friend has sent me an article about Evanston, Ill., once a
college town of considerable charm. Between 2000 and 2004,
700 condos and a 12-screen multiplex have been built down-
town, with 450 condo units under way. Downtown Evanston is
now "vibrant": condos cost about $300-$350 a square foot, and
the average price of a single-family home is $716,539. Soon, a,
1,586-car parking garage and 152,000 square feet of retail space
will be added.
In other words, Evanston is morphing into Chicago.
When will it occur to Venice residents that when a small city
welcomes a developer benefactor, the Trojan horse is being
pulled through the gates?
Building movie theaters for Venice will cost a pittance com-
pared to the large profits to be made selling condo units on the
island and leasing retail, hotel and restaurant space.


List of Bush's
questionable
statements grows

Editor:
It was only a matter of time
before the people started to
question President Bush's
truthfulness.
Statements he has made
over the years have raised
doubts of his honesty. The
"Houston Education
Miracle,"' his role in the Texas
Patient's Bill of Rights, the
changing reasons for the war
in Iraq, the real cost of the
Medicare drug program, the
correct number of stem cell
lines, his flip-flop on the
transportation bill and the


Rosemary Vauzanges
Venice
real story about the Social
Security problem are part of
an ever-growing list of ques-
tionable statements made by
our president.
To the person who calls me
and uses vulgar language,
unless you give me your
name I can only assume you
are a coward.

Alphonse DeFilippo
Englewood
Can't have it'
both ways

Editor:
A recent article about
Frank Kovach and growth in
school district spending also


included a reference by Barry
Dubin to "a radical element."
I assume that he refers to
civic-minded citizens who
question the spending
.increases.
I wonder what he would
have called those who
declared our independence
from England and Lord
North.
Another question arises
when school officials criticize
parents for not participating,
but then smeared them and
call them names when they
try.
Which will it be, Mr. Dubin
yes or no?

Left hanging"
without the Open

Editor:
Comcast has gone and
done it again. For two weeks, I
and many others had been
following the French Open.
Then, even though it was
published on the sports pages
and TV schedules, the men's
finals was pre-empted by a
fund-raiser without prior
notification by Comcast.
I wonder how loud the out-
cry would have been if the
Super Bowl or the deciding
game of either the World
Series or NBA finals had been
pre-empted without prior
notification.
It wasn't as though
Comcast wasn't aware of the
disappointment many fans
would have. Every attempt to
communicate with Comcast
was met with a prerecorded
message announcing that
NBC wasn't broadcasting the
event. Sorry, NBC did televise,
the event. It was Comcast that
didn't carry it.


My complaint is not with
All Children's Hospital. I hope
it raised more money than it
had hoped or planned for.
My complaint is with
Comcast. It could have given
either prior notice that it was-
n't going to broadcast the
French Open Men's Finals or
it could have made arrange-
ments to use one of its many
open channels to carry the
event.
It's time for the city of
Venice to allow other cable
operators to provide compet-
itive services. If that's not an
immediate available option,
'then Venice should require
Comcast to carry two NBC
channels.

Good ideas, but
no one's listening

Editor:
I read with interest the op-
ed piece, "Solution to
Affordable Housing" by Mr.
Dunn-Rankin. I heartily con-
cur, especially with his idea of
different impact fees depend-
ing on square footage. In the
past I have pitched similar
solutions to the Venice City
Council.
This community and
council do not want to deal
with the issue of workforce
housing. Based on the simple
emotions of greed and
avarice, larger lots, bigger
houses, less density, more
building restrictions all
promoted by the land devel-
opment regulations add up
to expensive housing and
sprawl.

LET 'EM HAVE I HOW DOES VENICE CITY WATER TASTE TO
YOU? CALL US AT 207- i1.


Can't go near the water here


The water connection. In my life I have traveled extensively,
lived in many states and visited dozens of states, probably
drunk the water in hundreds of municipalities. I have to say as
far as city water goes, Venice city water is the only water I can-
not stomach. I believe that the way they treat the water here is
unique and I think that a comparative study with other munic-
ipalities might indicate why and what is wrong with the water.
Because of the tie-in to the bad taste and the fact that it rots
copper pipes, there must be some connection.


Prejudice. I'm a senior citi-
zen, 75 years old. I just
received a renewed driver
license, which is good for
another five years. I was very
surprised, since I was not
required to take an eye exam
or a driver's test. I really feel
quite guilty at my age. I have
good eyesight, and I still have
my good mind, and I think
I'm a decent driver, but I do
know that I have friends my
age who shouldn't be driving.
My question is, why then,
would skateboarders be
required to have a 2.0 grade
average to use the skate park
if senior citizens are not
required, until they're 80, to
take an eye exam? I just really
wish somebody would print
something in the paper to
explain to me why these kids
have to have a certain grade
to skateboard. This, to me, is
absolutely ridiculous and
prejudiced. It makes me real-
ize why we have some kids
around that are rebelling.,.
Why wouldn't they rebel
against something like this?
Offensive cartoon. I am very
offended by the cartoon that,
you have on your opinion
page about the Venice
Regional Medical Center. You
say on your Let 'em Have It not
to mention people or organi-
zations and I think this is out-
rageous that you have that
there. That is in response to
that one clown who com-
plained about something or
other there.
Thanks VPD. I read Harry
Berry's article about his ride
along with VPD Officer haun
Duie. bour article wasriftier-"
esting, but being a retired,
senior lady living in Venice
close to 30 years, I don't appre-
-ciate your statement, "I know
their job .is done without
thanks from the people of our
community.", This just isn't
true. Your statement gives the
wrong message. I believe the
majority of us are thankful for
our police officers. I'd like to
say I think it's a disgrace our
police have gone since last
October without a contract.
They work hard and have to
make quick decisions and
occasionally their life is on the
line. They deserve even more
money than they're asking for.
Many people sit behind desks,
let other people make deci-
sions, and their life is not at
stake, and they make far big-
ger salaries. Give our police
officers better salary and get
this problem solved. And
thank you, VPD.
Hospital plans reek I'd like
to make a comment about the
cartoon in the Gondolier Sun
about the waiting room there
in the hospital. I'd like to go a
little bit further and say that


they're a for-profit hospital,
but now they're going to stuc-
co the outside of the hospital
between $2.5 million to $3
million. That reeks to high
heaven. Why don't they put
that money in to help some
people?
Support county. I do sup-
port the county buying envi-
ronmentally sensitive land.
Just too much building going
on and I'm not happy about.
it, but can't do anything
about it.
Clinic closing. When Bon
Secours Venice Hospital was
sold and became Venice
Regional, we were assured that
services would improve. Why
then, did they close the walk-
in center across the street from
the hospital on Aug. 1? It was
the best walk-in clinic in
Venice. Making it a part of the
emergency room services and
charging emergency room
prices creates a huge negative
impact. I was at the clinic
today; know how many
patients were there? None.
Who would pay the extra $100
that is now required? This is a
bad decision for the people of
Venice.

Police pay. I'm calling about
the Let 'em Have It article
about the Venice Police
Department deserving a fair
wage, they titled it "parity."
They said that the Sarasota
sheriff and the North Port
,Police paid higher than they
did. That is a totally inaccurate
statement. Actually, VPD pays
more than Sarasota PD. The
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office is the third in line for
payment, and then they have
to pay for their own insurance.
So when they talk about parity,
they need to make a compari-
son before they say they are
rot well paid.
Price gouging. I am con-
cerned about the price goug-
ing when. we were told about
the coming hurricane. The gas
station on the corner ofVenice


Avenue and U.S. 41 Business
has always had higher prices,
but suddenly, there was a 12-
cents-a-gallon increase on
each type of gas, all because of
the hurricane. This is outra-
geous. People should not be in
business if that's what they
have to do to the public.
Bad precedent. Construc-
tion crews at the Venice hospi-
tal are busy putting up new
frames around the windows to
change their shapes. Can
somebody explain to the city
residents how this is not major
alteration, and why the hospi-
tal doesn't have to go in front
of the Architectural Review
Board? It sets a bad precedent,
and all business in the future
should just not abide byARB.
Respect for elders. I am alit-
tle sick and tired of young peo-
ple complaining about the old
people. First of all, if it weren't
for the old people, the young
people wouldn't have what
they have today. Old people
still pay school taxes, giving
the opportunity of an educa-
tion. For the person who said
he is 59 years old and hates
Venice, why is he still there? As
for old people driving, recently
I was rear-ended, and not by.
an old person. Old people are
not out at night visiting bars.
Nothing to do, now that's too
bad. Why do the young people
of today have to be enter-
tained? Let them try reading,
home parties, cards and vol-
unteer work with young chil-
dren. Whatever happened to
respect for your elders and
yourself?
Hospital condos? Why is the
Venice Regional Medical
Center spending millions on a
new Mediterranean facade
instead of using the money to
expand needed emergency
services? Could it be that it
would enhance their prospect
for selling it to remodel into
condominiums? The city
council should inquire. -
Water deposits. If the cityl
quits charging a deposit on
new water customers, does
that mean that the rest of us
who pay our bill on time will
have to pick up the charges for
, people who leave the city pr
move and don't pay their bill?
Because I know that happens
quite a bit.
No improvement. What is
wrong with Mr. Chris Sharek? I
know he was asked to take a
big step up. We also know that
good management has a long
learning curve. You must have
thought he could handle the
job. Maybe you should have
made his position temporary
until his ability was proven. So
has he reached a point where
he cannot improve on him-
self? Does he just need a little
more seasoning to let his com-
petence show? Maybe he just
needs to pick a good assistant
who can help him carry the
load. I think this would be
more cost effective. Will he be
demoted in pay or stature?
Why keep him if he can't do
the job? I think it would be a
move of bad faith to hire a new
person over him.

'Sex crimes should
be federal matters

Editor:
Children, our most pre-
cious asset, are dying in the
most horrific ways. They are
victims of incest, sexual child
abuse, sexual predators and


rapists, and they suffer and
die in the hands of monsters.
Children and adults who sur-
vive a sexual assault bear the
scars for a lifetime.
Federalizing all sexual
crimes is the beginning of an
answer. Rape is a terrible
crime that all too often ruins
the victim's life. Sexual abuse
of children often follows a
male's inability to rape a
woman.
Federal teams of investiga-
tors, criminologists, prosecu-
tors and a new federal sex-
crimes court system are nec-
essary. If we have to foot the
bill for additional federal pris-
ons dedicated to incarcerat-
ing these sexual deviant-con-
victs, so be it. If the U.S.
Constitution needs to be
amended to effectively deal
with this class of criminal, so
be it.
Sex crimes against chil-


dren age 18 and under must
be capital crimes allowing for
death sentences on a first
offense if the heinousness of
the crime so warrants.
Likewise, rape must be
viewed as a capital crime in
instances where the offense
calls for that level of punish-
ment.
Together, good people can
move mountains. We can get
the attention of Congress, we
can create a more civil society
and we can eliminate this
menace living amongst us.
Our universal message:
Commit a sex crime and you
are gone, one way or the
other. No second chances, no
excuses, no mercy.
If you want to help, contact
us by e-mail at trooper-
bear@cabletvonline.net.

and add requirements of all
developers to get some
affordable housing in each
development.
The new Sarasota
Housing Trust will give some
relief, particularly to the
lower-middle class. The issue
of how to deal with the low
end has. yet to be fully
addressed. They all talk
about giving firemen and
policemen ,and teachers a
home. but ho one talks about
the huge number of people
that cater to the tourists,
including the waiters, the
clerks in stores, manufactur-
ing laborers, etc.
She was particularly
enthusiastic about the job
being done on environmen-
tal land, noting the county
had saved 80 percent of the,
land along the Myakka River.
She explained the need to
advance the 1/4 mill to buy
more land and increase the
bonding cap from $53 mil-
lion to $250 million. As we all
know, the price of property
has gone way up.
She mentioned the county
would like to purchase some
urban "land, which would
allow it to develop pocket
parks and nice scenic spots
throughout the county.
In all, the county is busy
on many fronts to keep up
with rapid growth while at
the same time trying to keep
the cost of government at a
minimum.


By's Crack: I don't
understand why the
British go around singing
"God save the Queen."
From what I've read, she's
the one member of the
royal family who doesn't
need to be saved.


The Venice police have
brought the impasse on. The
stalemate declared by the'
mayor and city manager is
because the union has tried
to squeeze way more out of
this than is realistic.
Most people in a new. job
would be tickled pink to get
pay increases of a few per-
cent a year, while the police
in the first years see their pay


go up 60 percent in five years.
Wow. This year there are
increases from more than 3
percent to more than 12 per-
cent. It should be noted how-
ever, the union would have
to pay more into health ben-
efits.
I think the union is the
,one that has bargained
improperly. It has demanded
more than is reasonable
from the beginning. Pay
increases of more than 20
percent are not reasonable.
City council likely will
impose a contract on them
and I hope it is less than they
could have got through tak-
ing a fair proposal.
You have to learn some
way that you have to be rea-
sonable. It seems every time
the city has negotiations with
the police, it is not resolved
easily, as it seems to be with
all others.
Let there be no mistake -
I think we have a great
department, but that does-
not transfer to unreasonable
increases in wages.

The YMCA has got an
industrial revenue bond not

will allow it to proceed with
the beautiful new Wellness
Center planned on Center
Road.
The current building has
served the community well
since the 70s, but even with a
few additions it has run out
of space and some facilities
are pretty tired.
It got somewhat freed up
when Southside (now
Lifestyles) came to town, as it
lured many members away.
The problem I have had
with moving ahead with con-
struction (which is to start
any day),, is that there has
been no formal drive for
funding, which will mean the
Ywill carry avery large finan-
cial burden. To a lot of us that
have seen the Y with big bur-,
dens and almost watched it
go under, this is disappoint-
ing. I personally think no
nonprofit should be carrying
alargemortgage.
There has been some talk
it may have a fund drive, but
that is less meaningful if it is
building the facility anyway.

STAFF REPORT

With school back in ses-
sion, lots of students will be
riding bicycles to and from
classes. Here are some gener-
al rules:
A person riding a bicycle
has all the rights applicable to
any driver, except for special
regulations for bicycles.
A bicyclist must obey all
applicable traffic control
devices traffic signs, mark-
ings and signals.
Upon all roadways of suf-
ficient width, a bike must be
driven on the right half of the
roadway. A cyclist on a road-
way must ride on the side
reserved for his direction of
travel.
A bicycle operated
between sunset and sunrise
must be equipped with a
lamp on the front exhibiting a
white light visible from 500
feet to the front and both a
red reflector and a lamp on
the rear exhibiting a red light
visible from 600 feet to the
rear.
A bicycle rider or passen-
ger under 16 years of age
must wear a bicycle helmet.
Bicyclists must use a
fixed, regular seat for riding.
A bicycle may not be used
to carry more persons at one
time than the number for
which it is designed or
equipped.
At least one hand must be
kept on the handlebars while
riding.


Every bicycle must be
equipped with a brake or
brakes that allow the rider to
stop within 25 feet from a
speed of 10 miles per hour on
dry, level, clean pavement.
When riding on a side-
walk or in a crosswalk, a bicy-
clist has all the rights, and
duties of a pedestrian.
Sidewalks are not designed
for bicycle speeds, but bicycle
use is allowed except where
prohibited by local ordi-
nance.
Since a cyclist riding on a
sidewalk does not have the
duties or rights of a driver, he
may ride in either direction.
However, it is safer to ride in
the direction of traffic, since
drivers do not expect cyclists
to come from the other direc-
tion at driveways and cross-
walks. At an intersection with
a traffic signal he must obey
the instructions of any applic-
able pedestrian-control sig-
nal: that is, he may start to
cross a roadway in a cross-
walk only during a steady
walk-phase, if one is dis-
played.
A person operating a
bicycle on a roadway at less
than the normal speed of traf-
fic under the conditions exist-
ing must ride as close as is
safe to the right-hand curb or
edge of roadway, except
under any of the following sit-
uations:
When passing another
bicycle or other vehicle pro-
ceeding in the same direc-


tion.
When preparing to make
a left turn.
When necessary to avoid
any hazardous condition,
including, but not limited to,
a fixed or moving object,
parked or moving vehicle,
pedestrian, animal or surface
hazard.
Where a lane is too nar-
row for a bicycle and another
vehicle to travel safely side-
by-side within the lane.
Riding in single file is
required except on bike paths
or parts of roadways set aside
for the exclusive use of bicy-
cles, or when two people rid-
ing side-by-side within one
lane will not impede traffic
flow.
A signal of intention to
turn must be given during the
last 100 feet traveled by the
vehicle before turning. If a
bicyclist needs both hands for
control, the signal need not
be given continuously. A
cyclist signals intent to:
Tirn left by extending the
left arm horizontally.
Turn right by extending
the right arm horizontally, or
by extending the left hand
and arm upward.
Stop or suddenly reduce
speed by extending the left
hand and arm downward.
A cyclist may not wear a
headset, headphone or listen-
ing device, other than a hear-
ing aid, while riding.

Crook clips clown's cash


Lawn workers nab two burglary suspects


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Nuzzles the Clown used
comedy to raise money for a
good cause all last week.
But the effort took a turn
toward tragedy -late in the
week when some bozo stole
the box with the week's col-
lection, which was bound
for the American Cancer
Society.
"A little girl handed me $5
to put in the bucket," said
Barbara Waters-Riddle, aka
Nuzzles of Clowns Like Us.
"The girl said,' 'This is for my
mom because she has can-
cer.' I turned to put it in the


bucket and it was gone."
Waters-Riddle estimated
that perhaps $30 was taken.
She and another dozen
other clowns celebrated
International Clown Week
by visiting several locations
in the area. They enter-
tained small crowds, twisted
balloons and painted chil-
dren's faces.
Waters-Riddle didn't
report the incident to police
and was reluctant to say
where she was when the
money was taken.
.But despite the fund-rais-
ing disappointment, Waters-
Riddle said she and the
other clowns made a lot of


people happy.
"We 'got a lot of laughs,
and we met alot of nice peo-
ple," she said. "Whatever
bad happens, we usually
end up on a good side any-
way."
The clowns managed to
raise another $100 to donate
to the cancer society.
Nuzzles said the person
who took the money must
have needed it badly. She said
she only hoped it went for
something good, like food or
clothes, and not a bad habit.

Two workers at the La Casa
mobile home park captured
two men Thursday morning
who authorities say may be
responsible for a rash of
break-ins at both La Casa and
Harbor Cove mobile home
parks.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office said it has
Joseph Sichelski,. 21,. 3831
Massini Ave., North Port, in
custody on six counts of bur-
glary, resisting arrest without
violence and loitering and
prowling. Sichelski is being
held on $60,870 bond.


The second suspect,'
whose identity has not been
released, is still being ques-
tioned, according to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office.
Donnie Mitchell, opera-
tions manager of S&D Lawn
of Oldsmar, Fla., and assistant
supervisor Darryl Irvine
found two men sleeping in
the clubhouse at La Casa.
Mitchell said he asked them
what they were doing and,
they told-him "visiting our
grandmother."
"Darryl and I walked vith
them down the street and as
soon as they reached the cor-
ner, they started to run,"


Mitchell said.
Mitchell said he and Irvine
chased the two men on foot
until they jumped into the
canal that separates La Casa
from Harbor Cove.
"My boss did not want me
to jump in after them because
of the alligators," Irvine said,
adding that they decided to
go around the canal.
Mitchell and Irvine said
the two men swam about 30
yards to the other side and
disappeared into Harbor
Cove.
Mitchell called Randall

at La Casa, who called the
police.
"We lost them in Harbor
Cove," saidIrvine..
He said many residents
from Harbor Cove helped in
the search.. ,
Mitchell said he and Irvine
then got into his truck and
drove to U.S. 41. Mitchell said
he spotted a deputy chasing
one of the men on foot.
"I rove past the chase and
Irvine jumped out of the back
of my truck," Mitchell said.
Irvine said he chased the
man about three blocks
before tackling him to the
ground.
Deputy Larry Carmack
caught up with them and
placed the man under arrest.
rvine said he was not wor-


tried whether, the man was
armed.
"We have had many break-
ins at La Casa and Harbor
Cove where we work, and (we
were) tired of being blamed
for it," Irvine said. .
Once in custody, the man
gave up his partner right
away, Irvine said. Police
brought the other man back,
and Mitchell and Irvine iden-
tified him as the second man.
Mitchell ,and' Irvine said
many homes and RVs have
been broken into over the
past week or two.
"They took no, TVs or
radios," Irvine said. They
took coins and jewelry, all
small stuff. One RV had more
than $5,000 worth of coins
stolen from it."


, Police are still investigating
whether the two men are
involved in other area bur-
glaries.

August 7 the Sun asked for hurricane stories and readers responded:


One year later,

blessings


By BUDDY LEGRAND
'SPECIAL TO THE SUN
) e were expect-
|\/ ing a category
2 hurricane to
pass about 75
miles west of us on Friday the
13th in August of 2004, so
needless to say we were in a
state of shock to learn that the
eye of a strong category 4
hurricane (it was probably a 5
because sustained winds of
155 mph and gusts up to 183
mph were recorded in places,
but nobody will admit to such
a big mistake), was coming
right at us in Deep Creek.
We had about
a two- to two- "We hc

did not spend a
minute in there spend a mi
because I kept because I
my eye on the on the st
storm every sec
second.
We were in


the left eye wall so the winds
were coming out of the west
northwest, which helped our
cause because we had five
giant oak trees and the best
direction for them to fall was
toward the east and away
from the house and all five
did come down, but only one
grazed the house.
We ended up with 185
shingles in our pool, none of
them ours. I could not-believe
the power of the winds as the
storm intensified.
At the peak of the hurricane,
our trees weren't just coming
down, but they were being
ripped apart, our pool cage
was gone; our garage door
was blown in, the shingles on
our roof were blowing off like
confetti and disappearing into
the sky.
Shingles came through our
front windows and before the
inside of our home got blown
apart, I was able to put a bed
mattress against the windows
and secure it with a big chair.
My head was injured in the
process by flying debris, but at
least my mission was accom-
plished and that definitely
helped save the inside of our
home.
As I saw the last of our trees
come down and the house
was starting to shake all over I
became nervous because I


feared for my wife's safety. I
knew the house had reached
its capacity to absorb punish-
ment and we could be in
serious trouble shortly.
It was at this point that the
sky brightened and I knew
that the eye was here and that
we would be OK. The backside
of the hurricane was no where
near as strong as the left eye
wall where we live.
As the hurricane subsided I
went out to check on my
neighbors. We had a total of
six families on our nice little
street that was lined with oak
trees before the hurricane.

I quickly
learned that we
were the lucky
ones as there
was catastroph-
ic damage on
our street. All
our neighbors
would have to
leave their
homes, but true
to the American
spirit we had a
party that night
and drank well
into the night
and actually
went to bed
laughing. ,
We were able
to make emer-
gency repairs to
our roof the
next day thanks
to a friend and
were one of the
first to get a tarp
so we were


saved. One of our neighbors
came back two months ago
and one last week, but there is
no telling when the other
three will be back and a year
has now passed.
The morning after the
violent hurricane was a scene
that we will take to our graves
- Massive Destruction.
We didn't have a grill
because we had a Jennaire on
our stove. We had a brand
new small hibachi and I had
managed to buy some char-
coal when we got the two-
hour warning. My ingenious
wife found some cheesecloth
and was able to make us some
good coffee. She then took an
iron skillet and cooked bacon,
then home fries, and finally
eggs.
We sat out on our lanai
amidst the total destruction
and had our miracle breakfast
in triumph in the August heat.
We looked at each other and
quietly smiled because we
knew we were the lucky ones.
But then tears come to our
eyes because we knew that
the fantastic retirement we
had enjoyed in Deep Creek
with our giant oaks and wild
animals and birds was gone
forever and Punta Gorda
would never be the same.

'I survived!'
By PATRICIA A. LINDSEY
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
I thinking my hurri-
I cane story is pretty
much the same as the
majority of people. First and
foremost, I survived. My
husband and I, as did most
folks, stayed and rode it out
huddled in the bedroom with
,a chest of drawers holding
doors while the chaos
whirled outside (and inside
after the windows went).
Again, as most, we had
considerable damage but
were able to stay in our home
with the help of our sons,
(who supplied us with a
generator, many cans of
gasoline and love and care),
neighbors, friends and even
strangers, who came around'
with ice, water, food and
moral support. The American
Red Cross was a Godsend, as
well.
During this past year, we
have started the healing
process and getting the most
important repairs done. We
are not at 100 percent yet but
will continue to make
progress. I am enclosing a
poem I wrote a few days after
the hurricane. Many thanks
to all who assisted us.
Without them I really don't
know how we would have
coped as well as we did.
God Bless us all.
Patricia A. Lindsey lives in
Punta Gorda.


Charley Visit (2004)

Friday, August 13th, was a very unlucky day
Hurricane Charley came storming our way
Charley was a granddaddy of a storm
His winds far exceeded the norm
Charley destroyed everything he took a notion
Had palm trees swaying like poetry in motion
Charley was a most unwelcome guest
Started your heart thumping inside your chest
His howling winds sounded like a train
Accompanied by his torrential rain
Awnings and roofs flying every where
As effortlessly as a feather in the air
Windows were breaking with a crashing sound
Glass and debris every where around
People were huddling and praying for strength
Just to get through Charley's endless length
Right through our county he came marching by
Some folks went directly through the eye
Never again do I want to hear that sound
I'm ever so thankful to still be around
It'll take months or maybe years
Not to mention countless rivers of tears
For cleaning up after Charley's devastation
Getting things back to some restoration
With the help of family, neighbors and friends'
We will get through and we will make the mends
Even perfect strangers stop with aid and cheer
It's quite a community we have here
Our county will definitely survive this storm
And we will get back even better than before
It's going to take time and help from above
But we will make it happen with God's love

-Patricia A. Lindsey,
Punta Gorda


Internet responses to the
Sun's Reader Poll request
for hurricane stories:
A TV that ran,
actually
"Taking a small battery-
operated TV set to a shelter,
which my wife and I
escaped to, was the center
attraction of the juvenile
set. Particularly when
electric power failed.
"During that period,
needless to say, the gath-
ered group enthusiastically
watched progress of
Charley until the set lost
power one youngster
noticed fluid seeping out of
the set. I inspected the
source and it came from
the batteries which were
leaking. I opened the
compartment and found
an acid-like liquid causing
the malfunction. I removed
the batteries and that's
when the comments from
the youthful group started
to pour forth.
"Recognizing the TV ad
brand, comments started
to pour forth.
"'Looks like the bunny
had to stop to pee!'
"'Why didn't he keep
going until Charley left?'
"This kept up after I
washed my hands of the
stinging fluid and discard-
ed the defective batteries.
My youthful friends
continued on for quite
awhile all trying to outdo

Charley robs memories


By LEW MORRISSEY
SPECIAL TO THE SUN *
It's been a year since the
hurricane. Glancing at her in
the rearview mirror, I still can
see the
sadness
S etched on
my mother-
in-law's face
as we drive
slowly past
homes and
buildings
scarred by
Charley in
MORRISSEY her beloved
Punta Gorda.
She notes softly that her late
husband sold this house or
that one or the lot on which a
house once stood. At 88, her
memory is still sharp. She can
tell you the names of the
buyers of those houses or lots
from years ago.
After her husband retired in
1971, they moved to Florida
from Michigan and settled in
Punta Gorda, their "paradise
on earth," with its hospitable
climate and slower pace.


They were among an early
wave of retirees from the
North attracted to the upscale
development of Punta Gorda
Isles, with its canal views and
boating access to pristine
Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf
beyond. They built their
dream house in PGI. She
settled into the familiar role of
homemaker, while he took up
his new career selling real
estate, much of it in PGI.
"That's where I used to have
my eyes examined," she
recalls wistfully, as we drive
past the site of the razed
Doctor's Office Building on
East Marion Street. Then
there's the broken, still vacant
real estate building on West
Marion, where "Don had his
office" and engaged in what
he loved for nearly three
decades.
My father-in-law died two
years ago. She misses him
terribly, but had carried on
bravely, comforted by her
familiar surroundings and the
memories of their golden
years together in "paradise."
Charley shredded the


familiar, ripped that protec-
tive veil of memories. My
mother-in-law now struggles
to reflect on the good times.
She fights depression. Those
of us who are younger retirees
and relatively new to this
community undoubtedly will
recover and resume our
pursuit of retirement heaven.
But many like my mother-in-
law will never resume life as it
, was, as they want to remem-
ber it. This was not the kind
of gradual change that comes
with the inexorable growth of
a community in demand,
change to which one has time
to adjust. Charley changed
the face of the community
abruptly and violently in the
span of hours.
Being one of those newer
retiree-residents of Punta
Gorda, I don't dwell on what
this community was but
rather on what it can become.
Consequently, I relished the
opportunity to join Team
Punta Gorda, to be a part of
the rebuilding process, and
my wife and I are pushing
ahead with plans to erect our


own dream house in paradise.
But what of my mother-in-
law? Oh she has new paint on
the walls, new carpet and tile
on the floors and soon we
can only hope a new roof.
Perhaps though, for her and
those like her, it really
amounts to nothing more
than a FEMA tarp covering up
wounded memories that will
never fully heal.
When she recalls that now-
shredded house her husband
sold, I need to be quiet rather
than trying to dismiss or
soothe her feelings by telling
her that "things are looking
better," or the hackneyed "the
Phoenix is rising from the
ashes." She still needs to
mourn, to hold onto those
pre-Charley memories.
Perhaps I should pull out her
photo albums tonight and
reminisce with her.
Morrissey retired last year as
an administrator at the
University of Michigan. He
and his wife moved to Punta
Gorda a week and a half
before Charley struck.

This occurred at the Pilgrim
Community Church shelter on
Rampart Blvd.
Ed


'It's was awful
to watch it on TV'
"My hurricane story has one
small catch... I wasn't in it. I


was raised there in Arcadia
and all of my family and
friends still reside there. I
watched the entire progres-
sion of Charley. I gritted my
teeth as it upgraded and then
watched in terror as it made
the turn. I watched all day, in
between much-needed
cigarette breaks and approxi-
mately 100 phone calls to my
family and I remember every
small detail.
"I felt the worst feeling of
dread that I have ever felt in
my life and my heart and
mind were racing. I finally
couldn't take it anymore so I
left my house and went to a
friend's hoping to escape the
weather channel.


"As soon as I told them what
was going on.. 'click'... on
came the weather channel
and five of us turned to 10 to
20 a house full of people in
Northeast Tennessee watching
the progress of Charley -
who would have thought?
"I continually checked up
on my family and briefed
them on what was going on
(they had no power), and told
them as the eye was passing
over them.
"Once, while frantically
asking how they were, my
grandpa started telling me
about a red light he ran the
other day and that maybe the
hurricane would take them
out because they're so


damned annoying and
casually mentioned that the
neighbor's shed had flown
through their porch and was
now laying at the bottom of
the pool. I wasn't sure
whether to laugh or cry. If he
was scared he never showed
it, but he's a strong guy.
"Two months later we came
down and saw the devastation
and it was bad. There were
tears, but mostly a lot of
prayers thanking God. Still to
this day I'm not sure what is
worse, living through it or not
living through it, but loving
people who did. Thanks for
taking the time to read my
story."

Lady Indians

alumni spike

a win '

Someone forgot to turn on
the air conditioning in the
teepee when the Lady Indians
Alumni played the current vol-
leyball team in their annual
game. Players from '85 through
'05 played their hearts out, in
spite of the heat, with the alum-
ni winning the match.
Ann Ross, Nancy Elliott,
Briana Sanburg, Kristin Batt,
Margo Sinibaldi, Nikki David-
son, Melissa Whitescarver,
Amber Davidson, Danielle
Durham, Lisa Hough, Becky
Ross and Diondra Reals
fought hard while joking and
having a ball.
Anyone watching the match
could only imagine .what pride
coach Brian Wheatley must
have felt seeing these young
women whose lives he affected
so profoundly. It was pretty
exciting being in a place with all
these champions.
Many alums were leaving
right after the game for college
so there were a lot of hugs and
goodbyes.
This volleyball season
should be great as Dana Du-
mas, Maria Cook, Carrie Sul-
livan, Ashley Graf, Natalie
Goudreau, Leah Bodi, Nickie
Halbert, Casey Taylor, Casey
Richards, Michaela Trimble,
June Hawlett and Danielle
Witte fought to the end and
played awesome volleyball.
The season starts Aug. 23.
Island hopping
Gilly, Waddy, Piper and
Palmer Francis are leaving the
island of Venice for the Gren-
adines. Waddy will be manag-
ing the Petit St. Vincent Resort
so the family will be learning
to enjoy the beauty of nature
without all the distractions
associated with traffic, noise
and a lot of people.
While their friends will miss
the daily contact with the
wonderful Francis family,
thank goodness for e-mail. We
certainly wish them all well.
Sad news
The Venice High School
sports family lost another
member recently. Pam Witte
passed away after a long battle
with cancer. Everyone who
watched her courage and knew
her, saw a woman of love deter-
mined to live in faith to the end.
We will miss seeing her but
know she'll be continuing to
watch all the volleyball games
with us from a better place
and without any pain.
Happy dollars
Kiwanis members love cel-
ebrating people with happy
dollars at their meetings. Don
O'Connell paid a happy dollar
for Tom Trammell, who was
traveling in 120-degree tem-
peratures in Tunisia. He paid
another dollar to announce
Thor Trammell lost his lug-
gage on the trip.


Tom Stephan, who just re-
turned from a trip to Thnisia,
paid a dollar to verify the tem-
perature was 120 degrees
when he was there.
Pat on the back
Office Depot deserves a pat
.on the back for all the deliver-
ies they made to Venice Ele-
mentary, School. Many teach-
ers had to buy bookcases for
their classrooms. Office Depot
made sure the deliveries were
made promptly giving the
teachers enough time to get
the book cases assembled
before the meet and greet.

Eric Watters




presents




Harry who?


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


After all these years, Eric
Watters is making his profes-
sional debut.
Aug. 26-Sept. 4, Watters,
accompanied by his friend
Jim Cox on piano, will per-
form the songs of Harry War-
ren in the Yvonne T. Pinkerton-
Theatre, the home of Stage II
and Cabaret productions at
the Venice Little Theatre.
Harry who?
"He won three Oscars,
Watters said. "He was nomi-
nated 11 times and he had the
first gold record 'Chatta-
nooga Choo Choo,' for the
song, which also earned him
his first Oscar nomination."
Warren wrote music for,
Broadway shows, the Busby
Berkeley films of the 1930s for
the Warner Bros. Studios, for
20th Century Fox Studios in
the 1940s and most other
major studios right up until
his death in 1981. His first
movie was "42nd Street" but
he also wrote music for the
number-one "chick flick" of
all time, "'An Affair to Remem-
ber" and years later, the Dean
Martin and Jerry Lewis film,
"The Caddy."
In his research, Watters
discovered that Warren's big
break occurred in 1923 when
the Ziegfield Follies picked a
Warren song for its review -
"So This is Venice." It was per-
formed by the PaulWhiteman
Orchestra.
When talkies came in, War-
ren went to Hollywood. Un-
der contract to a music pub-
lishing house in New York, he
had become part of the pack-
age when it was purchased by
Warner Bros. Studios. *
Watters said he did his
research at the Selby Library
in Sarasota and online at
Harrywarren.org. The Web
site was created in 2000 by


then 24-year old David Jenk-
ins, the consummate Warren
fan. The Web site features the
song writer's biography as
well as clips of much of what
he wrote, with words.
"I listened to all 450 songs
there in my process of trying
to find songs for the show,"
Watters said. "You have to
have a variety."
Not a problem given the
depth and breadth of the
Warren song list and the vari-
ety of performers for whom
he wrote during a career that
nearly spanned the 20th cen-
tury.
"He wrote songs for every-
body," Watters said.
Among the stars he wrote
for were Betty Grable, Dick
Haymes, Fanny Brice, Al Joel-
son, Doris Day, Bing Crosby
and Carmen Miranda.
Miranda was in New York
City as World War II was start-
ing in Europe. The Hollywood
studios couldn't sell their
films in Europe.
"They took Carmen Mir-
anda to Hollywood and start-
ed making lots of films for
South America," Watters said.
That is the kind of research
Watters does as, he' prepares
his shows.
In addition to listening to
those 450 songs and making
the choices for his show, he
learned about the songs, the
shows, the singers and the
composer, information that
he will share with his audi-
ence at the VLT.
Watters is a true Renais-
sance man. He has taught
school, sold stocks and
bonds, been a financial plan-
ner, served on countless
boards, raised money for the
Venice Symphony and other
causes and, along the way,
transmorphed into a song-
and-dance man.
Not just any song-and-
dance man, Watters has be-

style show at the Venice Little Theatre, Aug. 26-Sept. 4.


tome the Venice area's best-
known entertainer, annually
producing the successful Eric
Watters and Friends Show as
a benefit for the Venice Sym-
phony.
The next one will be Nov.
20 and 21 at the Venice Little
Theatre.
Watters' cabaret-style show
will be his first nonbenefit
show.
"It is a theater event," he
said. "They came to me and
said, 'We'd like you to do a
show.' They've left it in my
hands. I knew they were do-


ing a cabaret series. They'-ve
done Richard Rogers and
Rosemary Clooney'..."
In Watters' mind, a show
built around the music of
Harry Warren was a natural
fit.
Songs Watters will perform
include:
"I Found a Million Dollar
Baby" (In a Five and Ten Cent
Store), "Forty-second Street,"
"ShadowWaltz," "She's a Latin
From Manhattan," "I Only
Have Eyes For You," "Shuffle
Off to Buffalo," "Chattanooga
Choo-Choo," "Serenade in


Blue," "There Will Never Be
Another You," "Thlat's Amore"
and "An Affair to Remember."
By the time Act II is over,
no one in 'the audience
should need to ask. "Did he
write that?"
The VLTis at 140W. Tampa
Ave. "Did He Write That?" will
be in the Yvonne T. Pinkerton
Theatre, home of the VLT's
Stage II productions and
summer cabaret series.
Tickets are $20 per person.
For reservations or additional
information, call the' box
office at 488-1115.


The trademark of a Busby Berkely musical was
the kaleidoscope-inspired choreography, which
resulted in images such as this floral-like circle
of violin-playing dancers.


Several songs by Harry Warre were inspired by(nsodthousands

Austin's angels


BY SHARON BOYD
GUEST WRITER


Austin is a beautiful boy,
with blond hair, blue eyes
and a laugh that lights up
any room he is in. He is the
fourth of five children. He is
a source of great joy for us,
and yet he is also the source
of some of our greatest
heartache. You see, Austin
has autism.
It all started when he was
about 26 months old. His
grandparents came to us and
expressed concerns that he
may be deaf. As they pointed
out, he did not turn when
you called his name. He
seemed unaware of people
around him. He was actually


our easiest child up to that
point. We took him to a doc-
tor and had his hearing test-
ed it was perfect. They
suggested we take him to the
Early Intervention Program
to be evaluated.
We made the appoint-
ment. After the evaluation, we
had orders for speech, occu-
pational and behavioral ther-
apies. We thought that was
overkill for a kid who just did-
n't talk much and was
very active.
We started to call to make
all of the necessary appoint-
ments. Each expert told us,
"I specialize in autism."
We said, "That's great but
our son isn't autistic." After
about the 10th time, I called

our service coordinator for
EIP. I. asked her what was
going on. She described it in
a way that I, as a nurse, could
understand.
"When a patient comes in
with all of the signs of con-
gestive heart failure, can you
diagnose it?" she asked.
"No only a doctor can diag-
nose," I replied.
"Exactly," she said. -
I started to cry.
We were referred to a pedi-
atric neurologist. After five
minutes, he looked at us and
said, "You know your son has
autism." He was diagnosed
as moderately-severe on the
spectrum, and we were sent
home with no treatment, no
cure and many ,unanswered
questions.
a The crying went on for
a while. Our 13-year-old
daughter made all of the
meals, took care of her little
sisters, and somehow kept
the house running while we
grieved.
We grieved for the son we
thought we had, the boy
who would lead the football
team, date the head cheer-
leader, and win a Nobel
Prize someday. Slowly we

came to accept what had
happened to us and him. We
started searching for what to
do to help him, make him
better. We began to become
angry as we found nothing. I
was pregnant with our fifth
child at the time, another
son. I could not find one
thing to tell me that our new
son would be safe. I grew
angrier.
It was about this time


that I received a letter from
NAAR. I felt like a light had
turned on. Here were par-
ents like me who were also
angry. Angry at a system
that does not value our chil-
dren enough to find out
why they were being stolen
at an alarming rate. At the
time Austin was diagnosed,
the numbers were one in
500 children. They are now
one in 166. What is goingon?


We, as a family, decided
that NAAR is our way to fight
back. We no longer feel help-
less. We are being proactive.
We are now fighting against
this devastating disorder that
has hit our family. We started
the Southwest Florida Walk
and in two years have raised
more than $170,000 for re-
search. This is our fight. This
is Why We Walk. We walk for
Austin.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


;. .


- .& i~
By Vicki Connell,
""" MN.A., CCC-A "'
Certified Audiologist
Q. Recently, I woke up
with a loss of hearing in
my right ear. I saw my
doctor who prescribed an
antibiotic. Ten days have
gone by, I am out of
medication, and I still
cannot hear out of my ear.
What should I do?
A. When a person
experiences sudden hearing
loss they logically head for
their primary care physician.
Unfortunately, some doctors
do not realize that this
condition is a medical
emergency and instead, take
a "wait and see" attitude.
Sudden hearing loss should
always be treated like any
other medical emergency -
immediately. You cannot
afford to waste time if you
hope to get your hearing
back. In fact, the best time to
treat sudden hearing loss is
within the first 24 to 48
hours. Treatment usually
involves medications and
procedures that an Otologist
is best qualified to
administer. Knowing when a
hearing loss is a medical
emergency or not is
impossible for a lay person
to determine. If you have a
cold, have a blocked feeling
this would not be an
emergency, but if you have a
cold, and have an infection
of your inner ear then this
would be an emergency
requiring immediate
attention. Since you have no
way of knowing the cause of
a sudden hearing loss, it is
better to be safe than sorry.
Always contact an Otologist
immediately if you
experience a sudden loss of
hearing. The Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing and
Balance Centers, Inc. will
perform the testing the
Otologist will need and
insure that the doctor sees
you promptly. Call 492-4327
at the first signs of sudden
hearing loss.

Top five tips for recycling

electronics at home and at work


STAFF REPORT


Most consumers and busi-
nesses are accustomed to
recycling paper, plastic, glass
bottles and aluminum cans,
but many do not realize that
a wide range of everyday
electronic products can also
be recycled, including com-
puters, printers and even print
cartridges.
The country's growing de-
pendence on electronics at
home and in the workplace
has given rise to a new envi-
ronmental challenge: dispos-
ing of used, unwanted elec-
tronic products, often called
"e-waste." In March 2005,
Penn, Schoen & Berland As-
sociates conducted a tele-


phone survey of more than
1,200 U.S. consumers to ex-
amine attitudes and issues
related to e-waste. The survey,
commissioned by HP, con-
firms that although there is a
widespread lack of under-
standing of e-waste among 95
percent of consumers, the
majority of Americans view e-
waste as an important envi-
ronmental issue. The survey
findings show:
* 63 percent of consumers in
the United States believe the
environmental issue of e-
waste is either more impor-
tant than or just as important
as air pollution.
* 58 percent of American
consumers are not aware of an
e-waste recycling program


where they live.
With new electronic prod-
ucts being developed at a
rapid rate, obsolete technolo-
gy is being stockpiled in base-
ments, garages and office
storage facilities. Instead of
throwing these products
away, companies like HP
have established environ-
mental, recycling programs
for consumers and business-
es. HP's program, entitled HP
Planet Partners, is a return and
recycling program (hp.com/
recycle) that allows customers
to easily recycle used or un-
wanted technology products

Endangered Species Act



may need updating


BY JAMES L. CUMMINS
*GUEST WRITER


Since the Endangered Spe-
cies Act was signed by Richard
Nixon in 1973, more than
1,300 species have been listed
as threatened or endangered,
yet only 10 have recovered and
been delisted. During that
same period, 35 listed species
have been found to be extinct.
If our health system had those
kinds of success rates, we
would make some changes.
The well-intentioned ESA
sometimes results in hostility
on the part of landowners by
giving government the ability
to control how property is
used. This can make even the
most harmless of birds, plants
or other listed species the
landowner's foe, while actu-
ally damaging the species
needing protection.
The act does not now place
emphasis on recovering pop-
ulations to get them off the
list. The Act should require
scientific consideration of
what habitat must be protect-
ed, restored and enhanced,

America, is a beneficiary of
the Endangered Species Act.
how much is necessary, or if
habitat even is a limiting fac-
tor in recovery., Lacking that,
litigation has replaced careful,
peer-reviewed science in
decision-making. This takes
protection and recovery out
of the hands of wildlife man-
agers and places it in those of
lawyers.
We should update the ESA
by providing incentives to
forge, solutions that both re-
cover species and protect the
private landowner. This is not
a new concept. The act could
also be improved to do more


to keep species from becom-
ing endangered or threaten-
ed, like controlling invasive
species. Damage to habitat
by invasive species has con-
tributed to the decline of 42
percent of listed species.
We also need greater co-
operation between state and
federal agencies to protect
species. Fish hatcheries and
other captive breeding pro-
grams should be used. Small
tweaks in the Army Corps of
Engineers' maintenance pro-
grams have allowed it to
greatly benefit species along
the Mississippi River. Similar
opportunities exist with other
agencies in other ecosystems.
Our current 1 percent
success rate in recovering
species is not good enough.
We can do better. Congress
should update and modernize
the Endangered Species Act.

How do we know what we might do,


had we but tread life in another shoe?


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

My friend, Fran, and I are
about as different as black
and white or night and day.
She's Jewish and grew up in an
apartment house, in multi-
cultural Brooklyn. I am a
Gentile, and, until age 13
when I moved to a sophisti-
cated university city, lived in a
farm house in northern In-
diana. We kind of know that
our backgrounds are what
make us so very different.
She had electricity and
indoor plumbing. We had oil
lamps and definitely outdoor
plumbing, complete with


"Monkey Ward" (Mont-
gomery Ward Catalog) paper.
Some of her stories fascinate
me. She describes her father-
in-law as a Russian immi-
grant who first sold apples on
a street comer for 5 cents a
piece. Later he worked in a
clothing factory and amassed
a fortune of $25,000. Un-
fortunately, he became ill and
needed to go to the hospital.
Because he had lost earlier
savings in the bank (we call it
the "bank holiday"), and had
no faith in the banking sys-
tem, he had sewn the $25,000
into his trousers. And he just
plain refused to go to the hos-
pital.
The "bank holiday" had
profound effects on many
people, including my broth-,
er-in-law. He and my sister
lost all of their savings about
the time of their wedding and
he subsequently became a lit-
eral miser. He was a telegraph
operator and my sister was a
college-educated high school
teacher. Each payday she had
to hand her check over to


him, and whatever clothes
she couldn't make for her
family they bought second
hand. He kept the thermostat
so low in the winter that final-
ly our family refused to visit
them during the cold months.
My sister couldn't even call
me on the telephone. But
because of his penny pinch-
ing, he invested their money
wisely, and he left a very siz-
able inheritance when he
died. I dunno!
One of Fran's memories is
about her aunt who hitch-
hiked from Brooklyn to the
University of Michigan inAnn
Arbor. She graduated with a
law degree, but back then
women couldn't hold posi-
tions in law offices, so she
became a social service work-
er.
Because I was the young-
est of five, and my father the
youngest of seven, I had
almost no living relatives. So I
was amazed by Fran's stories
of celebrations in her grand-
mother's basement with as
many as 50 or 60 relatives


attending. Even her own wed-
ding reception was held
there. I can't imagine so much
family.
In the Jewish faith, the
Passover Seder is celebrated
in the spring of the year to
commemorate the escape of
slaves from Egypt. My friend
remembers the Passover din-
ners at her grandmother's
home. The holiday festivities
were all held in her huge
basement but the downstairs
kitchen was used only.to pre-
pare the Passover meals. Four
aunts cooked the meals, and
four different aunts served
the food and cleaned up.
There were about 60 people,
including many children. For
Passover all the old dishes
and food were disposed of,
and all kosher foods certified
by the rabbi were purchased.
The whole house was thor-
oughly cleaned before Pass-
over. The typical menu was
beef or chicken, cooked ac-
cording to kosher traditions.

Tenacity and Grace:


Train to End Stroke


keeps woman going


BY ELIZABETH SIVESIND
GUEST WRITER


Betty Grace had made up
her mind. She wasn't going to
stop until she reached the fin-
ish line.
In her 82 years, the retired
nurse had beaten worse odds.
She survived open-heart sur-
gery. She survived breast can-
cer. She survived a stroke.
So the 26.2-mile trek that
she part ran, part walked
through the smothering hu-
midity of a June day in Kona,
Hawaii, was just one more


thing to survive and she
could do it.
Onlookers couldn't believe
what they were seeing. Some
honked their car horns in
appreciation for her plight. It
was not only her age that
earned their admiration. Her
5-foot-3-inch frame looks
especially fragile, due to a
severe case of osteoarthritis
that has shaped her spine in
the letter "C."
Grace, a Discovery Bay,
Calif., resident, had to pause

'Words of Strength' cards



support kidney disease patients


STAFF REPORT

For the more than 20 mil-
lion Americans who suffer
from chronic kidney disease,
friends and family often pro-
vide a sturdy support system.
Now an imaginative online
campaign makes it possible
for. patients-and others-to
show appreciation for the
strength these loved ones
demonstrate day after day.
* A series of electronic greet-
ing cards, called "Words of
Strength," are a thoughtful


every bit as happy as our
overworked, overstressed
children and grandchildren
are today.

Virginia Deupree, a 91-
year-old legally blind resident
of Harbor. Chase of Venice.


way in which patients, family
and friends can support each
other through their battle
against chronic kidney dis-
ease. The cards were created
especially for African-Amer-
icans and Hispanic-Amer-
icans, who are at increased
'risk for this disease.
"Chronic kidney disease can
be a devastating illness that
affects patients and their loved
ones both mentally and physi-
cally. It is important not only to
treat the condition, but .also to
offer those touched by the dis-
ease support, and to empower
them with the strength to move
forward," said Tamara
Ruggiero, director of Com-
munications for the American
Kidney Fund.
The newest "Words of
Strength" cards feature favor-
ite recipes from the National
Kidney Foundation Three-
Pepper Quiche and Shrimp
Paella both of which were


created for patients who are
affected by chronic kidney
disease.
For patients with this con-
dition, finding healthy, tasty
recipes that meet specific
nutritional needs such as
having a balanced diet and
limiting sodium, potassium
and phosphorus intake is
important for maintaining a
healthy lifestyle.
To date, thousands of cards
from the "Words of Strength"
series have been sent, includ-
ing cards designed to help
observe Black History Month
and Kidney Disease Aware-
ness Month. These cards fea-
tured NBA basketball star and
kidney disease patient Alonzo
Mourning.
About chronic
kidney disease
While more than 20 mil-
lion Americans already have
chronic kidney disease, an-


other 20 million are at risk-
specifically in the African-
American and Hispanic-
American communities.
An important and often
overlooked sign of the disease
is anemia, or a low red blood
cell count. This potentially
debilitating condition results
in gradually worsening tired-
ness and may diminish a per-
son's ability to carry out rou-
tine activities.
As part of its ongoing com-
mitment to chronic kidney
disease. awareness, Ortho
Biotech Products, L.E, mar-
keter of Procrit, has pledged
cash donations to the Nation-
al Kidney Foundation, the
American Association of Kid-
ney Patients and the Amer-
ican Kidney Fund for each
online greeting card sent.

STROKE from page 68


to straighten her back every.
time she wanted to take in a
full breath. When she became
really tired, the injury made it
impossible to raise her head
fully.
Part of the motivation that
kept her going was her team-
mates, whom she met
through Train to End Stroke,
an athletic-event training
program sponsored by the
American Stroke Association.
For months, Grace inspired
her younger cohorts with her
determination at training
walks and runs, so much so
they paid her way to another
race in Hawaii to be their


cheerleader.,
Sandy Hagerty, a 57-year-
old stroke survivor, met Grace
at a training event and was in
awe of her tenacity. "Betty
would always say the obvi-
ous," says the Walnut Creek,
Calif., resident, who also
raced in the Kona Marathon.
"On a hard day if we were
doing extra miles, she would.
say something like, 'What
could be so hard about
putting one foot in front of
the other?' That kind of state-
ment would come back and
we would remember."
Grace kept up her pace
"pretty good" for the first 13


miles. She knew she had only
nine hours to complete the
marathon, an official race
rule. But the miles just got
"longer and longer and hard-
er and harder," Grace says.
With six miles to go, a Train
to End Stroke coach from
Atlanta saw that Grace was
struggling and walked ,with
her for the remainder of the
race.
"I really wasn't worried
about her health," says Karen
Kaye, also known as Coach
Mom. "She did (mile 20) in 17
minutes. And I said, this lady
is tough as nails!"
Grace remembers that


when Kaye joined her race,
she slowed her pace down to
accommodate her new walk-.
ing partner.
"I would have been going.
faster if I had known she was
a coach," Grace says. "I was
taking it a little bit easy."
As the race was winding to
a close, Grace was becoming
something of a celebrity. So
many runners and walkers
had already completed the
race that the roads had been
reopened for traffic. Carloads
of people drove by cheering
wildly for her. At race end,
many participants. hung
around for its conclusion.


Kaye likes to say that the
whole island knew Grace was
approaching the finish line.
As soon as she saw it, Kaye
says Grace stood straight up
and took off.
"I was trying not to laugh,"
Kaye recalls. "She was sprint-
ing so hard! I have never seen
anything like it."
It took Grace nine hours,
six minutes and seven sec-
onds to complete the course.
Though she was a few min-
utes over, race organizers
decided not to ding her for
going overtime. After all, she
had taken first place in the
age-70-and-older category.


Later on, racers and coach-
es from around the country
were approaching her for
hugs, kisses and snapshots.
Even at the airport she had an
entourage.
The fuss doesn't faze Grace
much, though.
Once again, she says the
obvious.
"I just kept going because I
wasn't to the finish line yet."

Hotel chains com


in


a bid to provide the





comfiest night's sleep


BY MICHAEL MARTINEZ
GUEST WRITER


The hotel industry appears
to have awakened to the fact
that it's not just about 24-
hour room service, wireless
Internet and cable TV It's also
about a good night's sleep.
Prodded by Westin's suc-
cess with its Heavenly Bed,
virtually every major chain
from budget to upscale is.
introducing new mattresses,
linens and even sleep gadgets
intended to provide a restful
night's sleep and win trav-
elers' loyalty.
The rush to produce all
these new high-thread-count
sheets and duvet covers has
unleashed a battle of the
beds:
Radisson is introducing
Sleep Number beds. Hyatt is
going with a new pillow-top
mattress. Marriott has
ordered $190 million worth of;
upgraded beds and linens.
Hilton has designed what it
calls the world's easiest-to-set
alarm clock. And Crowne
Plaza has hired a sleep doctor
for advice on relaxation and
tossed in a sleep kit for guests:
eye mask, earplugs, night
light, a drape clip, lavender
aromatherapy spray and a
sleep CD.
Even budget chains (Red
Roof Inns) and moderate
hotels (Best Western) are
jumping into the fray, with
amenities such as hypoaller-
genic pillows at the former
and triple sheeting at the lat-
ter.
All of this can be traced to
the introduction of the
Heavenly Bed Westin's pil-
low-top Simmons mattress
with 900 individual coils that
is soft and firm without being
too much of either. Rolled out
five years ago by Westin, a
Starwood Hotels property, the
bed's popularity with guests
made other hotels notice.
Now, rather than, pine for
home, many guests are set-
tling in for a restful night -
and then asking how they can
buy the beds for themselves. ,
"Being first into the market
is huge advantage," said Sue
Brush, Westin's senior vice
president. "We feel good that,
although people are trying to,
duplicate what we've done,
nobody has reached the level
that we're at after five years."
Westin's 2004 internal sur-


vey showed that guests,
ranked comfort of beds a 9.19
on a scale of 10, up from 8.96
in 1999. And in a survey of 64
hotel brands, J.D. Power and
Associates, which measures
customer satisfaction, ranked
Westin and Sheraton in its top
10 in comfort of bed.
New beds and bedding,
said Linda Hirneise, a partner
at J.D. Power, represent "a
very strong competitive edge"
for Westin and Sheraton.
"Now, they're all playing'
catch-up."
Consumers are paying the
bill for the new beds, but so
far no one is complaining.
Brush said that guests in
Westin's survey indicated they
would be willing to pay $9 to
$11 more for a good night's
sleep. At Radisson, focus
groups indicated they would
pay an additional $10 a night
for better beds.
"When-people go to bud-
get hotels, they tell us that the
hotels are 'cheap, they're a
lousy value and they leave a
lot to be desired," said Tod
Marks, a senior editor at
Consumer Reports who
tracks hotel satisfaction. "But
they go for one reason -
because they're cheap.
"As you move to more
upscale properties, people
have higher expectations.
And there's no more higher
level of service than the com-
fort of bedding. People will
pay more for it."
So why didn't hotel owners
give their guests better beds
sooner, especially if they
could have charged more?
Probably because guests did-
n't demand them.
"Ten years ago, bedding
was a small segment of the
market," said Leo Vogel,
director of sales and market-
ing for Sealy's contract divi-
sion, which supplies upscale
properties like the Four
Seasons and Ritz-Carlton
with its beds. "Now, luxury
bedding has become a huge
issue at the retail level. People
are spending more money on
mattresses. It's part of our
lifestyle."
The upgrade trend means
-that many hotels have finally
trashed those unsightly floral,
bedspreads, which hid stains
and were cleaned infrequent-
ly. In their place are thick
comforters with white duvet
covers that are cleaned after


each guest checks out.
"People are wise to the fact
that a polyester floral-pat-
terned bedspread doesn't get
washed very often," said
Kevin Kowalski, vice presi-
dent of brand management at
Crowne Plaza. "If you use
white, you can't hide stains
and filth."
Beds and linens have gone
over so well that many guests
ask about purchasing them at
checkout. Westin has sold
almost 4,000 of -its Simmons
beds (at a cost of $1,300 for a
king mattress and box spring)
and 30,000 sheet-and-pillow
sets on its Web site: It expects
- sales to top $8 million this
year.
Other hotels refuse to be
caught napping. Crowne
Plaza now sells its Serta beds
on its Web site, and Marriott
and Hilton plan to sell their
linen packages online this
summer. Upscale properties
such as the Four Seasons and
Ritz-Carlton have been sell-
ing their beds and bedding
for several years, and Fair-
mont guests can make bed
purchases from their rooms
at some locales.
It's all about getting an
edge on the competition.
Now, hotels are trying to one-
up each other by offering
tempting extras. Crowne
Plaza, for instance, has quiet'
zones in its hotels separate
floors with no housekeeping
services before 10 a.m. and
no kids. Hilton's new clocks
have pre-programmed but-
tons for news, sports and
music, plus a connection
cable for an iPod or MP3 play-
er and an alarm clock that's
simple to use. Marriott intro-
duced its "no-tuck" concept
- sheets sized so they don't
have to be tucked in on the
sides.
In.the end, it's all about a
good night's sleep.
"We spend money on hotel
bars and concierge lounges,
but what every guest buys is a
place to sleep when they're
away from home," said
Kowalski of Crowne Plaza.
"The industry is finally recog-
nizing that we need to do a
good job of delivering on
that."
Even as hotels introduce
new concepts, some things
won't change like 'those
tasty chocolates on the pillow.
"We tried some experi-


ments where we took them
away," said Steve Samson,
director of room operations ,
for Marriott International.
"People complained."
Upgrading sleep
Here's what' the major
chains are upgrading in the
sleep department:
Marriott International
has been replacing mattress-
es at its Marriott and Ren-
aissance hotels for several
years and is adding new bed-
ding at its 2,400 hotels,
including higher-thread-
count sheets, down com-
forters and duvet covers -at
a cost of $190 million.
Hilton Hotels is intro-
ducing new bedding across
its brand, including Hilton,
Doubletree and Embassy
Suites. There will be higher-
thread-count sheets, plush-
top mattresses, extra pillows
and user-friendly clocks.
Crowne Plaza replaced
some 50,000 beds and bed-
ding last year,. hired a sleep
doctor for advice on relax-
ation, and tossed in a sleep kit
for guests: eye mask, ear-
plugs, night light, a drape clip,
lavender aromatherapy spray
and a sleep CD.
Radisson last year be-
gan moving in custom-
designed Sleep Number beds
at 230 of its hotels and resorts,
with most of its 90,000 beds to
be replaced by 2006. New
bedding is also included in
the makeover.
Hyatt recently rolled out
its Grand Bed, a 13-1/2-inch
pillow-top mattress, and
added more luxurious linens
and decorative pillows.
Last month, Starwood
Hotels announced the debut
of a new bed at its moderate-
ly priced brand, Four Points
by Sheraton. The Four Com-
fort Bed, a $13 million invest-
ment, joins the Heavenly Bed
and Sheraton Hotels' Sweet
Sleeper Bed in Starwood's
continued assault in the bed
wars.
Red Roof Inns will offer
pillow-top mattress pads,
230-thread-count sheets and
hypoallergenic pillows at
select hotels this summer.
Some Best Western
hotels, including those in Half
Moon Bay and San Francisco,
will add new mattresses,
comforters, feather pillows
and triple sheeting.

SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
Cruise ships on the Mississippi River occasionally pass
Pilottown, which is located between the Mississippi Delta
and New Orleans. It is where river and delta pilots live for
two-week shifts of guiding freighters and other large boats
through the sometimes treacherous headwaters of
America's largest river. After a seven-year apprenticeship,
the pilots climb up the side of the big ships to take control
of that section of the river for which they have been
trained, keeping the ship out of harm's way.

right. People are clamoring to

Target Free Friday Nights

7,000 visitors a week between
4 and 8 p.m. It's a much
younger crowd than usual:
lots of college students mixing
with visitors in their 20s and
30s. Plus a smattering of visi-
tors from foreign countries.

Sarasota County Libraries now offers BookNews


Online service gives
readers access to
electronic newsletters.

STAFF REPORT
The Sarasota County Li-
brary System has introduced
BookNews, a new online ser-
vice for readers.
This new reader's advisory
service gives readers access to
free electronic newsletters
about a wide variety of books
via the library system's newly-
revampedWeb site, sclibs.net,
or delivered directly to their e-
mail address.
Readers can access the ser-


ART from last Green Sheet
Textbook examples abound:
Monet's "Water Lilies," Van
Gogh's "Starry Night," Picas-
so's "Les Desmoiselles d'Avig-
non," Cezanne's "Bather," Sal-
vador Dali's "Persistence of
iMerory," Jackson Pollock's
"One."
But that's just the cream in
the coffee. MoMA owns fabu-
lous prints, drawings and
photographs, has a top-notch
department of architecture
and design, and ventures into
new media.
The claustrophobic feeling
in the old building is a thing of
the past. There's plenty of
room to stand back and look
at the art, even during peak
hours. The new Contem-
porary Galleries on the sec-
ond floor are huge, suitable
for powerful works dating
from 1970 to the present,
many of monumental scale.
The outdoor Sculpture
Garden, home to works by
Picasso, Miro, Moore, Calder,
Judd and many more, is beau-
tiful at this time of year.
The new building has
space for several temporary
exhibits as well. A Lee Fried-
lander photography show
opened June 5; an exhibit of
paintings by Cezanne and
Pissarro opened June 26.
It's hard to squeeze all of
this in during four hours, but


vice via the BookNews link
from the home page of
sclibs.net and select the
newsletters they wish to read.
They can also elect to
receive the monthly newslet-
ters via e-mail on the 15th of
each month.
Readers can select elec-
tronic newsletters based on
genres, including new fiction,
new nonfiction, mystery,
classics, business books,
home and garden books and
science fiction books. The
newsletters are also catego-
rized by books that have
received awards, such as the
Pulitzer Prize for History and
a newsletter about works for
children that have received


it helps to use one of the free
monthly calendars and maps
available at the front desk.
MoMA's film series is almost
as famous as its collection,
and seats fill up fast on Fri-
days.
Be prepared to wait if you
arrive before the floodgates
open at 4. Lines snake around
the block starting about 3:30,
but the crowd thins as the
evening wears on.

and charities around the
world or trade in used prod-
ucts and upgrade to new HP'
products. This is a simple
take-back program that aims
to cut down on waste by
offering consumers and busi-
nesses the ability to respons-
ibly dispose of any brand of
computing hardware. Since'
'the program began in 1987,
HP has recycled 616 million
pounds of computer hard-
ware and print cartridges
globally.
In addition to recycling
electronic waste at home,
consider starting an electron-
ics recycling program at your
office. Here are five tips for
getting started:
1. Obtain top-level man-,
agement support: The suc-
cess of a recycling program
hinges on the endorsement
of senior management. Also,
recycling programs .often
require initial outlays of capi-
tal for necessary items such
as collection bins. Manage-
ment approval of a recycling
budget ensures that resources
are available when needed.
2.. Appoint a recycling
coordinator: A coordinator
should be appointed to
manage the entire recycling
program. The person select-
ed should be genuinely
interested in recycling and
able to interface with per-
sonnel at all organizational
levels. It is advisable to incor-
porate recycling responsibili-
ties into the employee's over-
all job description.
3. Assemble a recycling


task force: A task force should
be formed to help the coordi-
nator initiate the program. It
may become a permanent
advisory body to ensure con-
tinued program develop-
ment. For best results, choose
task force representatives
from the departments that
will be most affected by the
recycling program, such as
building maintenance. Enlist
the support of the HR depart-
ment to get this program
started.
4. Develop a collection
method: Whether the organ-
ization is housed in a num-
ber of buildings or in one
building, it will be necessary
to design a method for col-
lecting electronic waste. The
main thrust in developing
an internal collection system
should be convenience. Key
considerations include:
Recyclable materials:
Identify what items can be
recycled at the office and
where they can be recycled.
For example, HP's Planet
Partners program accepts
any HP or non-HP branded
computer, printer, scanner,
fax machine, desktop server,
monitor or handheld device.
HP also accepts the associat-
ed external components such
as cables, mice and key-
boards. (HP only accepts
computer equipment, and
does not accept monitors
with broken glass.)
Containers: Consider
where containers are to be
placed, the quantity needed,
size, shape, color and labels


that inform employees and
customers what to put in
and what to leave out.
Storage: The central
storage area should be clean,
dry and free of fire hazards.
If located outside, 'consider
using covered storage bins to
preserve material quality and
prevent litter.
Collection and return:
Collecting recyclables and
taking them to the central
storage area is usually the
responsibility of custodial
staff. A printed operations
schedule is helpful to collec-
tion personnel. A member of
the company's recycling task
force can be assigned the
task of ordering the recycling
service through HP as need-
ed.
5. Implement an educa-
tion and promotion pro-
gram: It's important to tell
employees about office recy-
cling policies, procedures
and goals. For example, com-
municate how easy it is to
recycle HP LaserJet and ink-
jet print cartridges, whether
recycling in singles or bulk.
Usual channels for convey-
ing this type of information
include staff meetings, ori-
entation meetings for new
employees, newsletters, fliers
and posters.
For more information on
recycling used or unwanted
electronics, contact your
municipal waste agency.
Consumers can call (800)-
CLEANUP (253-2687) to find
a recycling center or visit HP
Recycling at hp.com/recycle.

STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEFF TAVARES PHOTO EDITOR
jtavares@venicegondolier.com


The.classical techniques of
yoga date back more than
5,000 years. In ancient times,
,the desire for greater personal
freedom, health and long life,
and heightened self-under-
standing gave birth to this
system of physical and men-
tal exercise which has since
spread throughout the world.
The word yoga means "to join
or yoke together," and it
brings the body and mind
together into one harmo-
nious experience.
The tradition of yoga has
always been passed on indi-
vidually from teacher to stu-
dent through oral teaching
. and practical demonstration.
The formal techniques that
are now known as yoga are,
therefore, based on the col-
lective experiences of many
individuals over many thou-
sands of years. The particular
manner in which the tech-
niques are taught and prac-
ticed today depends on the
approach passed down in the
line of teachers supporting
the individual practitioner.
There are more than a
hundred different types of
yoga. Some of the most well
known types are listed below.

Hatha yoga: The physical
movements and postures,
plus breathing techniques.
This is what most people
associate with yoga practice.

Raja yoga: Called the "royal
road," because it incorpo-


rates exercise and
breathing practice
with meditation and
study, producing a
well-rounded indi-
vidual.

Jnana yoga: The
path of wisdom; con-
sidered the most diffi-
cult path.

Bhakti yoga: The
practice of extreme
devotion in one-
pointed
concen-
tration on
one's con-
cept of
God.

Karma
yoga: All,
mo ve-
ment, all
work of
any kind is
done with
the mind
centered
on a per-
sonal con-
cept of
God.

ments. One of the
diagrams that is used
to show the joining
of the physical and
spiritual bodies is two
triangles superim-
posed on one an-
other. The down-
ward-pointing trian-
gle represents the
physical body, or the
female aspect having
to do with work,
action and

upward-
pointing
triangle
represents
the spiritu-

Kashmir
Shaivism:
S This Yoga
sy s t e m
states that
everything
in the uni-
verse has
both male
and female
qualities.
In Kashmir
Shaivism,
: these male
and female


principles form an equal
partnership, so interdepen-
dent that they cannot be
separated.
, The attraction between
them produces the ultimate
union of opposites, creating
the immense complexity of
the universe that we enjoy
and celebrate. Unlike other
philosophies, Kashmir Shai-
vism is based in emotion
rather than intellect.' In fact,
Shaivism says that intellectu-
al understanding by itself will
never lead us to the realiza-
tion of the summit of yoga.
The system's great exponents
teach that the egotistical
intellect blocks our ability to
fully experience our individ-
ual power.

The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County,
located at 806 Pinebrook
Road in Venice, offers gentle
yoga classes suitable for be-
ginners. Men are welcome.
The, classes are Tuesdays,
at 10:30 a.m.-noon. and
Thursday, at 10-11:30 a.m.
and an evening class, 5:30-7
p.m. The fee is $8 per class
and you are ask-ed to bring
your own mat.
For more information on
the yoga classes or other pro-
grams offered by the Women's
Resource Center in Venice,
