These are the chemo nurses and lab techs who help keep me alive. Left to right: Linda, Barbara, Elaine, Nancy, Dee
and head nurse Michelle.


Myfamily and my nurses


help me cope


The chemo nurses reveal the
secret of working with cancer
patients. It is so simple, and
so profound.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third of a
three-part series on a Venice Gondolir Sun
reporter's cancer diagnosis. One more
independent report will follow on the
widespread reaction to the series.
BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

I told my three adult children and
adult granddaughter I had leukemia
when I started the chemo.
My youngest daughter, Kara Sue,
who is 35 and a registered nurse in
Chicago, also gave me hope.
"Dad," she said, "diabetes is worse
than CLL."
My other daughter, Leslie, and
son, Kevin, also accepted it like I had
hoped they would calmly and
with hope. My younger brother Billy
said, "I'm not going to be concerned
until your doctor is."
I told a few other family and close
friends about my CLL. The general
response was, "Oh, really, I've got an
uncle, or friend, or neighbor who's
had that for 30 years."
There wasn't a time I went to the
oncology center that I didn't realize
how fortunate I was. I got so I could


joke about it, how I had the "good"
leukemia. I just didn't do it too loud-
ly, or around those patients who
were not as fortunate as I.
I also realize that anything can
happen. I am not cocky.
Cancer is a horrific, indiscrimi-
nate, evil killer. It can turn on you
with a vengeance. Doesn't matter
who you are, how much you make,
what you've done, what you're going
to do, man, woman, child.
People: .ho smoke get cancer;
people who don't smoke get cancer.
Bodybuilders get cancer; people
whose only exercise is getting up,off
the couch get cancer.
Cancer sucks, man.
Tommy's angels
Michelle, Nancy, Barbara and Dee
were my chemo nurses. What beauti-
ful, smart, incredible women they
are.
Theirs is the work of angels. They
mean so very, very much to the
health and well-being of their pa-
tients. They do not get anywhere
near the praise, or the money, they
should.
And dear, sweet Linda, the engag-
ing medical assistant who pricks my
finger for blood. You're something,
lady.
I know there must be times when
they want to break down and weep
Please see COPE, 5A


In the beginning, the last thing on my
mind after being diagnosed with
chronic lymphocytic leukemia was
going public.
First rule of journalism is the reporter
should never become the story.
Doing a story on yourself is bad jour-
nalism, not to mention pompous,
arrogant, self-serving, bad form and
in lousy taste.
BL[. there can be overriding consider-
ations. Might telling the story help
others cope with cancer? Perhaps, if I
told it properly.
As I became more confident that my
prognosis was good and I would most
likely continue to be everybody's pain
in the neck for another 20 years, I
gave it some thought. My editor, Bob
Mudge, colleague Debbie Shulman,
and my wife, Sherrey, all thought it
would be good to tell the story.
What convinced me about three
weeks ago was my oncologist, Dr.
Stephen Orman. He thought telling
my story would be a good idea if I
could tell it so readers came away
with hope. I have tried to tell it that
way without minimizing the seri-
ouisness of cancer. Make no mistake:
Cancer is a nasty disease.
Telling the story has also been a
catharsis for me. I am no longer carry-
ing this secret around.
I take the disease very seriously. I try
not to take myself too seriously.

ASSISTANT EDITOR


Residents can rest easy.
The idea of turning Venice,
Miami and Tampa avenues
into one-way streets down-
town appears to have been
tossed in the trash can.
A multi-story parking ga-
rage, however, is at the top of
city staff's wish list:
Venice City Council mem-
bers will get their first look at
the Central Business District
urban design study Tuesday
during their regular meeting.
The study, conducted by
private consultants Wade
Trim, provides cost estimates
and suggestions for down-
town improvements that
cover everything from park-
ing garages to the types of
benches and signs.
The overwhelming con-.
cern I ruim downtown busi-
ness owners is the need for
more parking, especially dur-
ing "the season" between
January and May. According
to the Wade Trim study, there


are 1,583 spots to park down-
town and there needs to be
more.
Going from horizontal on-
street parking to angled park-
ing and turning Miami, Ven-
ice and Tampa avenues into
one-way streets isn't worth
the cost and could actually
make traffic worse, according
to the staff recommendations
report from Public Works
Director Larry Heath.
Such a project would cost
about $386,000 and onlyyield
51 new spaces.
"City staff does recom-
mend the parking garage op-
tion for long-term future
needs in the downtown area,"
Heath states in the staff
report. "The exact location is
not determined at this point,
but several suggestions from
the community have been
offered."
Potential :,pot, for -the
parking garage include the lot
next to Althea's Restaurant on
Miami Avenue, but staff said

Brown grass, sharp bits of
gravel and generous amounts
of creepy-crawlies are about
to be turned into a scenic,
lush, colorful park leading to
historic downtown Venice.
At least that's the plan by
city staff.
Public Works Director Lar-

concept plans at their meet-

Union, city miles apart in negotiations


AFSCME's counteroffers on raise amounts
and a pay plan were shot down


byVenice's negotiators Fri

In view of that, they'd also
like to receive the same per-
centage of raises and follow
the same pay plan as firefight-
ers and police officers.


iday.


These requests drew a cool
response from city adminis-
trators Friday as contract
talks continued with officials
from the American Federation
of State, County and Mu-
nicipal Employees Local 1718
union.
"I would not want to give
you any false hope or lead
you astray," Venice Adminis-
trative Services Director Bren-
da Digges said. "I'm being
honest with you. There is no
way this can happen. ... It's
like you want to have your
cake and eat it too."
AFSCME workers have
been without a contract just
as long as police officers, dat-
ing back to last October. Talks
have only recently begun, as
talks with the city's classified
workers have been placed on
hold in favor of Fraternal
Order of Police negotiations.
Those FOP talks are at an
impasse, meaning council
members will impose a con-
tract onto the police officers.
City negotiators have'started
meeting with AFSCME in
hopes of creating a contract -
for the 149 employees that
make up nearly every job that
isn't a firefighter, police officer
or management.
AFSCME asked for raises
of 6, 7 and 8 percent during
the contract's' three years,
which would be on top of


annual step increases. The
union also would consent to
paying health insurance as
long as the annual step plan
was reduced from 12 to six
steps.
A week ago, the city offered
the union across-the-board
raises amounting to 3.5, 3.75
and 4 percent.
AFSCME President Ralph
Hamann said the union's two
requests are only fair, since
the city's firefighters and
police officers have similar
agreements. As it is, 72 per-
cent of AFSCME workers -
107 out of 149 make less
money .than an entry-level
police officer.
Top-out pay of nearly
$50,000, according to ,the ex-
pired police contract, is
reached by the end of year
five. AFSCME workers cannot
top out in pay until their
12th year, and most of those
maximum amounts are be-
tween $30,000-$40,000.
More than 70 percent of
AFSCME workers earn less
than $33,000 a year many
closer to $25,000 a year and
it's getting impossible to live
and work in Venice, Hamann
said.
"Even the ability to rent
here is about nil with what
you pay employees. ... It's
becoming unbearable," Ha-
mann said.
Not interested
Pay and health insurance
costs remain the major stum-
bling blocks. Other union
issues that need to be resolved


are overtime pay during
natural disasters, forced
overtime, shift differential
amounts and job classifica-
tions.
The city's proposal would
make individual health in-
surance free during 2004-
2005 to any worker making
less than $38,000 a year and
cost $40 a month for those
making $38,000 or more.
In the next two years,
employee costs would be:
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 $44,000.
AFSCME negotiator Mike
Temple asked City Attorney
Bob Anderson to look into
making this, basically, a four-
year agreement, even though
three years would be the
maximum. Temple suggested
creating a Memorandum of
Understanding for contract
terms affecting 2004-2005,
and then make the new con-
tract effective Oct. 1 and


extending three years from
that date.
Anderson did not offer an
opinion, but Digges said the
city was not interested.
Temple's goal is to lock in
health insurance premiums
for as long as possible. A deal


retroactive to last October
means negotiations could
start again next summer.
"I have done this in other
cities," Temple said. "My con-
cern are these hard numbers
(for health insurance) and
getting them locked in."


AFSCME negotiator Mike Temple points out a city report
shows how most union members are paid less than those
in neighboring cities. At $7.44 an hour, Venice school
crossing-guards are estimated to make 58 percent less
than those in other communities.

Sarasota County According to industry
experts, there are over 33 physical problems
that will come under scrutiny during a home
inspection when your home is for sale. A new
report has been prepared which identifies the
eleven most common of these problems, and
what you should know about them before you
list hour home for sale.
Whether you own an old home or a
brand new one, there are a number of things
that can fall short of requirements during a
home inspection. If not identified and dealt
with, any of these 11 items could cost you
dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's
critical that your read this report before you
list your home. If you wait until the building
inspector lags these issues for you, you will
almost certainly experience costly delays in the
close of your home sale or, worse, turn
prospective buyers away altogether.
10 Th,,oo,,,s4ifp swhsfL sl


In most cases, you can make a
reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you
know what you're looking for, and knowing
what you're looking for can help you
prevent little problems from growing into
costly and unmanageable ones.
To help homesellers deal with this
issue before their home is listed, a free
report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know
to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been
compiled which explains the issues involved.
To hear a brief recorded message
about how to order your free copy of this
report, call 1-866-214-7091 and enter ID
1003. You can call anytime, 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week. Call NOW to learn
how to ensure a home inspection doesn't
cost you the sale of your home.

COPE from page 1A
from the patient load and the
ravages of the disease itself.
You know why they don't?
Because they are professionals.
Dee said it best.
"My patients are people
who really, really want to live,"
she said. "I get energized from
that."
And Michelle shared a
quote she heard at a profes-
sional gathering. She said it
went something like, "I'm not
dying of cancer, I am living
with cancer."
That's what keeps these
angels flying.
After my last chemo round,
I bought lunch a couple of
4-foot-long Publix submarine
sandwiches complete with a
half-dozen pies and'ice cream
cakes for the entire Florida
Cancer Specialists office staff,
including the five doctors.
Once every couple of weeks I
take the angels a few dozen
cookies from Buffalo Bill's.
"You keep me alive," I told
them, "I shall reward you with
food from the gods."
Same goes for Traci, Joyce,
Sally and the others in the
front office. And Carol, the
FCS financial counselor. You
are all the difference, believe
me. Unfortunately, We could
not run a group photo of
these wonderful women be-
cause we didn't have space.
I have seen these women
so harried by the pace of
keeping up with the chemo
nurses and the doctors that it
is amazing they do not have
nervous breakdowns right on
the spot.

Confidence
Because I am occasionally
preoccupied with this damn
disease, I suppose I have been
even surlier to those I work
with, although they would say
I was always surlierr."
Immediately after the di-
agnosis, I had to decide
whom to tell at the Venice
Gondolier. I trusted only two

ple who really, really
want to live," Dee said.
"I get energized from
that."
people at the paper enough to
share my personal medical
information.
I told my boss, friend and
editor, Bob Mudge, and my
colleague and confidante,
Debbie Shulman, our assis-
tant features editor. Two out
of about 60 people.
I knew if I told anybody but
Mudge and Shulman, -it
would be all over the street. I
wanted to be the judge of
whether my medical infor-
mation would be released
and to whom.
I insisted Mudge not tell
anybody in corporate. I have
never even been on the com-
pany health plan, so I've been
a cheap date as far as the
company is concerned. I have
private insurance plus Med-
icare. For that reason my
medical condition was none
of the company's business, at
least at that point. Mudge said
he would not say anything
unless I started missing work.
That was OK with me.
I will always honor Mudge
and Shulman for keeping my
confidence.
My wife, Sherrey, has been
so supportive, and always with
me through the diagnosis, the
sometimes sleepless nights,
long discussions over the
kitchen counter and during my
consultations with Orman. My
wife is a breast cancer and
melanoma cancer survivor.
Her counsel, support and love
are immeasurable.
She also forgave me for
shaving my head sort of. I
no longer have to sleep under
the Venice Avenue Bridge. I
now am authorized to sleep
in the garage with the Harley.

GARAGE from page 1A
the property is too small and
wouldn't be cost effective for
the net gain of 93 spots. Wade
Trim estimated the cost of
this 140-car garage to be $1.7
million.
Other options could be the
eastern portion of Centennial
Park or entering into public-


private agreement for a
garage atVenice Little Theatre
or the U.S. Post Office area.
The downtown group
Venice MainStreet is opposed
to parking garages at
Centennial Park or on Miami
Avenue, mostly because the
spots would be too small.
MainStreet suggested
Hecksher Park, home of the


public tennis and basketball
courts, as well as the post
office and VLT options.
City council will not issue
any final decisions during
Tuesday's meeting. After
reviewing the staff report and
public input, members will
direct staff on which options
to bring back for a vote and
funding.

rounded by grass and col-
ored, stamped concrete.
"One of the cornerstones
of Foundation Park we'd like
to implement is an etching of
John Nolen's original plan for
the city," Black said.
Eleven months ago, Sara-
sota Conservation Foun-
dation and Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Venice
teamed up to buy the proper-
ty for $413,000.
Many people know this as
the spot where the old Storm-
in' Norman's restaurant used
to be.
The city was then given a
long-term lease on the prop-
erty, at basically no cost, in
exchange for developing,
building and paying for a park
dedicated toward creating
more green space.
Cost of this project is esti-
mated to be as much as
$300,000. Funding will come
out of the city's parks impact
fee account. With council
approval, construction could
start some time after October,

Black said.
Free to talk
Complaints by council
members about state laws
limiting outside conversa-
tions on certain city matters
have led to a resolution to
allow them to open their ears.
If it passes, the resolution
would overrule City Attorney
Bob Anderson's advice that
council not engage in outside
talks on quasi-judicial mat-
ters ,like rezoning applica-
tions.
Council members would
be free to talk outside of pub-
lic meetings as long as they
document the content of the
conversation, who it was with
and whether it tainted the
public hearing process.
Florida Supreme Court rul-
ings have established an
"assumption" that outside
conversations taint board
votes on certain issues, like
code board cases and rezon-
ing requests. This new resolu-
tion would remove that
"assumption," but council

members would still have to
maintain proper documenta-

Admitting his legal inter-
pretation is conservative,
Anderson has always main-
tained it's safer to limit con-
versations on quasi-judicial
matters to public hearings in
order to prevent legal chal-
lenges.
Other items
Also on Tuesday's agenda:
Tarpon Center Drive -
Council will be asked to final-
ly approve the Tarpon Center
Drive sewage line replace-
ment project. However, the
cost has jumped by nearly
$58,000 over what was
approved last December. This
section has been the site of
frequent sewage line breaks
the past couple of years,
sending thousands of gallons
of raw sewage into Venice
Inlet. Tuesday's vote will be
on the extra money, pushing
the project cost up to
$187,600, and giving the con-
tract to E.T. McKenzie Com-


pany. Age and increased
water pressure on the sewage
pipes have been named as
the chief causes. The job was
originally budgeted at
$143,000 in December.
Police vests- TheVenice
Police Department needs
$12,000 to purchase replace-
ment body armor for police
officers who have been using
the Tri-Flex bullet-proof vests.
Vests containing up to 31 per-
cent of the material Zylon can
unexpectedly fail. None of the
models being used by VPD
has failed, but it is a possibili-
ty, according to the compa-
ny's Web site.
Higher land fees -
Council will vote on an ordi-
nance to change wording and
increase fee amounts charged
for subdivision and plat
applications. Applications for
preliminary plat approvals for
lots smaller than a half acre,
for example, would now cost
$250 plus $5 for each lot.

Indians grind




up Manta Rays


Venice uses patented ground attack
to eat up Lemon Bay 35-19 in Kickoff Classic.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR.

The slogan for Venice
High football could very well
be "It's what's up front that
counts."
Through the years, the
Indians have depended on
manhandling offensive line
play to fuel its smashmouth
ground attack.
From the beginning of
Friday night's FHSAA Kickoff
Classic at Lemon Bay High,
Venice's "0" front reminded
one of the battering rams
the feds used to smash in
the fortress doors of bootleg-
ging mobsters back in the
prohibition days in the '20s.


Venice's ball-control of-
fense rang up 274 rushing
yards 145 of them coming
in the first half as the
Indians cruised to a 35-19
victory over the Manta Rays.
Lemon Bay was held to
88 rushing yards by the
Indian "D".
"I liked the way we played,"
said Venice coach Nick
Coleman, who is now
in his seventh year at the
Indian helm. "We played
physical football. We blocked
well. The backs ran hard."
And how.

Friday night's preseason game.

Paul Costanzo protects the ball as he is hit by a Manta Ray in Friday night's Kickoff Classic.


Isaiah Carpenter and tight
end Ilya Vasilevskiy con-
stantly mowed down an in-
experienced Lemon Bay de-
fensive front.
It resulted in big
yardage for the Indian
running backs.
Strapping Tony
Charles, who is 6-2 and
230 pounds, rang up 94
yards in just a half. They
came on just five car-
ries. He could have had
174 yards if one play -
an 80-yard touchdown
run onVenice's first play
from scrimmage -
wasn't called back for
motion.
Sophomore Paul
't. Costanzo picked up
55 yards on six
carries. He scored two
TDs. Another 10th-
grader Jimmy Laurie
was slippery in run-
ning for 70 yards. He would
have closed in on 100 yards if
a late 25-yard TD run wasn't
called back.
Senior Joe Estep scored
on a' 12-yard run in the
fourth quarter. Senior Kiki
Merzius ran for 35 yards and
went in from a yard out for
Venice's first touchdown
near the end of the opening
quarter.
Senior Matt Wickwire
looked sharp at quarterback,
completing five of six passes
for 66 yards. Lefty Aaron
Tate engineered a TD drive in
the third quarter. Kyle Cal-
lahan also called signals near
the end of the game.
Costanzo caught two of
Wickwire's throws one a
14-yarder on a screen play for
a TD just before halftime.
Cole Calhoun grabbed two
passes good for 29 yards.
Charles and Vasilevskiy also
had pass receptions.
Venice was never seriously
threatened, leading 7-0 after
one quarter and 21-0 at the
half.
Lemon Bay cut it to 21-6 in
the third quarter, but the
Indians scored two more
quick TDs to go up 35-6. The
Mantas tallied twice late in
the contest.


Defensively, end Ray Popp
had an active game. Line-
backer Dan Martini had his
named called over the PA. on
several occasions. Corner-
back and special teams cata-
lyst Travis Nottingham was
limping on a sore ankle.
On the down side, Venice
rang up 80 yards in penalties
- a chunk of that coming in
bunches and turned the
ball over three times. One
ball was intercepted after it
tipped off a receiver's hands.
There were two lost fumbles
- one on a punt return
and another from scrim-
mage late in the game.
Penalties wiped out two


touchdown runs.
Venice did not create any
Lemon Bay turnovers.
"We were a little sloppy,"
Coleman said. "We had
some mental breakdowns.
We have to concentrate
every play, one play at a
time. All in all, we have a
long way to go."
The Kickoff Classic is a
preseason game that does
not count on the won-loss
record.
Venice opens the regular
season this coming Friday
night with a trip to Lake-
land. The Dreadnoughts are
ranked No. 3 in the USA by
the Sporting News.


Costanzo stands out for Indians


There were a lot of stand-
outs in'Venice's 35-19 victory
over Lemon Bay Friday night,
but one player who caught
the eye was Paul Costanzo.
Whether he ran a dive play,
caught a screen pass or made
a block, the kid was impres-
sive. Several times during the
evening, Costanzo gave sec-
ond and even third efforts to
move the ball in a pile of
defenders.
On the, night he had six


carries for 55 yards and he
scored two touchdowns, one
at the end of the first half on a
reception and another run-
ning on a sweep in the second
half.
Hopefully, the Indians
have found a complimentary
back to Tony Charles and the
team will be able to move the
ball effectively, no matter
which back is in the game.

Messina sees light in loss to Venice Indians


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


One of these years, Lemon
Bay hopes to beat Venice in a
Kickoff Classic.
Until then, coach Mike
Messina is going to have to
settle for extracting the
positives from defeats at
the hands of the rival
Indians.
Venice made it a perfect
5-for-5 in Kickoff Classics
over the Manta Rays follow-
ing Friday night's 35-19
victory in Englewood.
Looking at the score,
Messina has plenty to build
on entering this coming Fri-
day's season opener against
Charlotte.
"I think we did some


things right," said Messina,
who is in his 11th year at the
controls of the Mantas. "I'm
encouraged. We played a
very good 5A team. I liked
our effort. We played a pretty
good second half. Our of-
fense moved the ball."
It was a heckuva lot bet-
ter than the Spring Classic,
when Lemon Bay was ripped
by Immokalee.
After trailing 21-0 at the
half, Lemon Bay outscored
Venice 19-14 over the final
two quarters.
The Mantas got big offen-
sive efforts from Dustin
Kalin, Carson Clemens and
quarterback Matt Piloto.
Kalin made two big plays
to score two of Lemon Bay's
touchdowns. He busted a


kickoff return 76 yards for a
fourth quarter TD, seeing a
small hole and darting
down the left sidelide to
paydirt.
Late in the game, Kalin
gathered in a 25-yard touch-
down pass from Piloto.
Clemens scored the
Mantas' first touchdown of
the night in the third quarter
on a 14-yard screen pass
from Piloto. Kalin set that
up by recovering a Venice
fumble on a punt return.
Lemon Bay had six first
downs in the first half but
came away empty. The
Mantas moved the ball 38
yards on its opening drive to
the Indian 37 but a 43-yard
field goal was wide and
short.


Venice's offensive line -
big and mean won the
war in the trenches in the
first half. The Indians scored
TDs in three of four first half
possessions.
The Manta defense in par-
ticular had trouble bringing
down monstrous Indian run-
ning back Tony Charles, who
gained 94 yards on just five
carries in the first half.
Charles set up Venice's first
TD with a 49-yard gain. He
scored Venice's second touch-
down early in the second
quarter on a 6-yard burst.
And he took a pass from quar-
terback Matt Wickwire 19
yards to the Manta Ray 9-yard
line at the end of the second
quarter to set up the Indians
third TD with four seconds


left before halftime.
Charles could have had
an even bigger stats half, as
he went 80 yards untouched
to the end zone on Venice's
first play from scrimmage. It
was called back for illegal
motion.
"Our defense is very
young," Messina said. "We
only have four seniors on
defense. We have a long way
to go. That's why we play
good teams in the Kickoff
Classic."
Lemon Bay will play an-
other good team in its season
opener in Charlotte. The dis-
trict schedule also is tough
this year for the Mantas.
Messina hopes his bunch
keeps growing as the season
progresses.

A quick meal and gas money


Why are golfers so compet-
itive? I don't know, but I have a
hunch.
As we get older, our bodies
betray us and sometimes our
minds too. Most players I
know are very competitive.
We will gamble on almost
anything. If it's raining out-
side, I know where there is an
all-day gin game. If it's nice
and they're playing, it's all
about the action.
Think of Nathan Detroit
and Sky Masterson in "Guys
and Dolls." Everything re-
volves around how you can
separate your acquaintances
from their cash.
I have seen more than my
share of action through the
years. I've also seen what can
happen to guys when they
get in over their head. Don't
get me wrong, if you lose
money on the golf course, no
one will break your legs if you
need a little time or a trip to
the ATM to get things right.
However, I have seen a guy


THE ZONE

tell someone he was going to
his car to get a check and not
show back up for a month. He
only harmed his own reputa-
tion and never got the action
he wanted again. Many times
have I seen a player cheat. It
doesn't bother me much
unless we are playing for my
cabbage. How can you experi-
ence the joy of winning when
you really didn't?
But I digress. Recently
while playing at a local club
that shall remain nameless
for this particular story, I saw


something that just cracked
me up. A very good player
who travels down here from
a far away land north of the
Skyway Bridge did something
that amazed even me. After
around, this particular player,
whose initials are R.J.,
who will bet on anything,
ate a cockroach for $5. Even
though it was a little German
cockroach, it was still a
roach. And he still ate it.
Personally I would have
opened the floor to open
bidding before I had a snack,
but he just did it on the spur
of the moment. I know I had
$5 or $10 I would have gladly
parted ways with.
Now I don't know how he
played that day, but I do know
he got a tasty morsel and some
gas money to get home with.
There are a lot of stories
like this one and Ijust hope he
doesn't end up going to
GA or something worse like
trying to get on "Fear Factor."
See ya.

hangar in Venice


A $405,000 hangar will be constructed
for one new Bell 407 helicopter and an airplane.
The helicopter is being lease-purchased
for $2 million with federal forfeiture funds.
Venice city officials will approve a 25-year lease
for the 1-acre hangar site.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A new $405,000 aircraft
hangar should be finished
early next spring and provide
ample space for ,Sarasota
County Sheriff Bill Balkwill's
fleet and aviation staff, but it
didn't get cleared without
some pointed questions about
the department's flight opera-
tions.
On July 27, the county
commission unanimously
agreed to shift $345,000 from
next year's budget so a con-
tractor could get to work. The
balance will be covered by
transferring $60,000 from a
South County Animal Services
capital improvement project.
The new facility will be.


GARAGE from page 5A
this problem leads the long
list of improvements staff
wants to see downtown. Wade
Trim drew up six design
options, ranging between
$35,000 and $179,000 to build,
which include everything
from just replacing the light
signals to installing a round-
about.
The Venice Public Works
Department has gone with
design No. 5, which would
cost about $160,000. The
hanging traffic signals would
be replaced with decorative
posts; right-turn lanes would
become parking spots; and
ADA standards for pedestri-
ans who are visually impaired
would be met.
Other suggestions
Here are a few of the other
staff recommendations:

The intersection of West
Venice Avenue and Avenida

the public tennis courts,
would be reworked. Pave-
ment would be pulled up and
replaced with grass, and
pedestrian crossings would
be identified.
Centennial Park Staff
is asking council for direction
on this. Options are: to leave
the parking areas as is, or con-
sider a pair of redesigns that
would add 45 or 43 spaces,
respectively; and then there's
the parking garage option.
Redesign options would cost
about $763,000, and there is
no estimate for a parking
garage.
Power upgrades -
Electrical service improve-
ments to Centennial Park,
medians and holiday event
'areas are recommended.
There have been frequent
power problems for holiday
decorations and downtown
events because of the dated
outdoor electrical outlets.

built on 1 acre at the Venice
Municipal Airport. A 25-year
lease agreement for the land
is being negotiAted with the
city at an estimated $12,000
a year. The deal reportedly
includes a five-year renewal
option.
"How big is the plane?
Why does the sheriff need a
multi-seat plane?" commis-
sioner Nora Patterson asked
Lt. Steve Burns, who was
present to answer questions
about the project.
Burns explained that the
hanger was actually needed
for a new helicopter.
"We're now housed in a
community maintenance
hanger where other planes
are around and being re-
paired," he explained. "The
airplane, a Beachcraft Baron,
was acquired from the U.S.
Forest Service, and is being
kept in a small T-hangar. It
will also be moved into the
hangar."
While Patterson didn't get
a direct answer about why
the sheriff needs a multi-seat
plane, she persisted in asking
questions about aviation ex-
penditures, how many peo-
ple are attached to the flight

What prompted the
$405,000 hangar expenditure
is the anticipated October
arrival of a new Bell 407 heli-
copter, which has twice the
blade span of the Bell 206,
and is being purchased for
$2 million through a seven-
year lease agreement with
sheriff's federal forfeiture
funds.
"It will be used for daily
patrol, and has a detachable
tank available to help fight
fires," he said. "It is usually
manned by a pilot and train-
ed observer, and can respond
to calls for help from the
ground or be used to follow
a vehicle from the air. We
don't use the airplane a lot."

We're not giving red tide enough attention


There is nothing like the stench of dead
fish or the eye-stinging, choking effects
of red tide to ruin an afternoon at the
beach. The occurrences of such conditions
have become more common on area beach-
es in the past two years.
Scientists are scrambling to find a cure for
the algae bloom that taints our gulf waters,
kills fish and irritates our lungs and eyes.
They understand how a single alga called
Karenia brevis produces the powerful toxin.
What they can't pin down is what causes the
alga to bloom and exactly how it attacks fish
and humans' respiratory systems.
The Center for Toxicology at Mote Marine
Laboratory in Sarasota is involved in a major
study of red tide. Studies are addressing how
to predict a red tide outbreak, where it origi-
nates, how it moves and whether or not
development and mining have enhanced the
number and severity of red tide outbreaks in


recent decades.
But in 2003 the budget for the Mote
Marine study was trimmed from $1 million
to $400,000 by the state Legislature. That
funding was restored to the $1 million level in
2004 and 2005 but that is not enough.
Biologists and scientists have been able to
continue the study thanks to federal funds
but, with the war in Iraq, an energy bill and
highway bill chewing up the national budget,
even those funds are becoming more difficult
to access.
Last week, Mote Marine's $6 million grant
to study the effects of red tide on humans was
not renewed. The National Institute of
Environmental Health Services turned down
the request with the caveat that Mote can
resubmit the request by Oct. 1 for reconsider-
ation.
We believe there are few issues more
important to Gulf Coast tourism than red


tide. The menace is depleting our fish popu-
lation and giving our beaches a bad reputa-
tion.
Who wants to deal with red eyes and
coughing not to mention hundreds of
dead fish when they can travel to the the
East Coast and enjoy Atlantic Ocean waves?
And we locals don't even have that option.
One of the most recent blooms stalled in
Boca Grande Pass recently after moving from
just off the coast of St. Petersburg to Lee
County. The red tide has killed species that
range from goliath grouper to soft corals to
redfish.
Mote Marine Laboratory reported 58 dead
loggerheads and Kemp's ridley sea turtles
have washed ashore since June 1 in Sarasota,
Charlotte and Manatee counties.
Red tide is clearly a danger to our sea crea-
tures and our way of life.
Two years ago we called on Save the


Manatee Club and boaters groups to quit
their bickering over manatee speed zones
and other issues and funnel more of their
money toward red tide studies. We have seen
very little movement in that direction even
though red tide likely kills more manatees
than boats.
State lawmakers and our Congressional
delegation have to get involved. If our beach-
es develop a red tide reputation and that is
already happening -it will affect our tour-
ism for years.
Money is not the answer for every ill. In
this case, however, it is imperative that we
speed up studies that seek a cure.for red tide.
Mote's work needs to be pursued, as does the
cure Nokomis resident Bob Rigby appears to
have developed.
Can it be that we don't want to know the
answer? That is the only reason we can imag-
ine for lawmakers not making this a priority.


Sadness in




Flowerland


BOB VEDDER


Growing up in central
Illinois, I acquired a love of"
flowers. My mom was the
consummate gardener, as
much as she could be with
asthma. But we.had quite the
flower gardens.
Most everyone pitched in
pulling weeds. I was pretty
much the lawn mower; my
brother seemed to duck that
duty because he had to read.
I developed a lawn busi-
ness that was pretty darn
strong, even outearning
many of the jobs I had work-
ing for dad at the newspaper.
My mom always thought I
would make a landscape
architect.
My Grandfather Vedder
was also a gardener and par-
ticularly liked roses. He had a
pretty nice garden at the
house in Adrian, Mich. My
dad and his wife, Helen, have
great gardens in Champaign,
Ill., and he has a lot of nice
roses.
After college I went to work
for Dow Jones, publisher of
the Wall Street Journal. The
company ran us around the
country, but we ended up in
New Jersey, at its headquar-
ters.
Well, you know New Jersey
is the Garden State, and most
everyone lived up to the
name. We had a garden that
won the neighborhood com-
petition, or almost did, any-
way.
I was on the road a lot in
that job but found enough
time to tend to the crops. We
had corn, peas, cucumbers,
radishes, carrots, watermel-
ons, lettuce, beans and pota-
toes. Some would say there
isn't much else to do in Jersey.
So, as you can see I have
been around gardening.
When we came here I con-
tinued that love, with a yard
filled with annuals and flow-
ering plants. I love hibiscus
and have a lot of those. I just
love having a plant that flow-
ers year-round. We did a lot of
landscaping and I put in
many beds, most with flow-
ers.
A couple of years ago I got
the Vedder bug for roses. I had
bought a couple with mixed
results. They just took a little
more time than I could give
them.


Then I found out that
Chiara Shanika is a master
rose grower, and she helped
me along by teaching me a lot
about the art of growing
roses.
I have built up my garden
of roses to about a dozen
bushes of all kinds. We have a
couple of trees at the entrance
to the house, a climber on the
side and then three beds for
the rose bushes. They all have
a nice open exposure to the
sun, get fed better than we do
arid get sprayed for bugs pret-
ty regularly.
I just love bringing flowers
to work and giving Sue roses
everyday.
I am so serious that I have
become a Rosarian, a mem-
ber of the local rose society.
Chiara is the editor of the
Manatee and Sarasota rose
newsletter, where I have
learned more than I can deal
with.
One of the things that hap-
pens to roses is that they get
lots of pests, with some vari-
-eties more susceptible to dis-
ease. One disease this time of
year that most of them get is
black spot. It is a fungus that,
if left unattended, will kill
most of the leaves and thus
damage and possibly kill the
plant.
We have had a lot of rain,
which promotes black spot.
After the hurricane went past
and left us with lots of rain
and quite a bit of black spot, I
grabbed my bottle and
sprayed them all thoroughly.
The next day when I went
out to do my daily cutting I
noticed something horrible
had happened. It dawned on
me: It was the spray I had
applied the day before. I
quickly checked the bottle I
had sprayed with and discov-
ered that I had sprayed
Roundup on all but one of my
roses. It was devastating.
Unfortunately the two bottles
were exactly the same shape.
My friendly Rosarians have
given me help and advised
me to cut them all back in
hopes that they may recover. I
finally have seen little signs of
life some, but I am not sure
they will ever come back.
It is a sad time for me, and
a waiting game to see how
many I can save before start-
ing over again. I wasn't sure I
would do it again, but I know
the love of flowers will likely
win and I will be back at it.

JackMeyerhoff gave me an
article from the National
Taxpayers Union Foundation.
Once again, my brother was
quoted, as he had given a pre-
sentation to the group in
Australia.

Beauty giving way to condominiums


Editor:
More buildings encroach upon where lush trees towering
vines, wild flowers once lay at rest. Truly I cannot understand
how so many multi-story buildings, oversized homes can be
considered remarkable or an asset to our landscape or housing
requirements. Who can afford to reside in such places? Few
parks are now being added with such buildings.
Then one might consider the Intracoastal Waterway walk-
way-bicycle path. A rather nice cemented area with a few park
benches along the way. Yet no facilities are available:
restrooms, drinking fountains.
One would think there would be a sidewalk drinking foun-
tain along Tamiami Trail as it sprawls through the county. Yet
there is none. In fact, there is barely a margin along the high-
way before the hectic traffic travels along this path.
Well, I don't think that building will ever satisfy myself. I'm
sure it will those who will reside there and maybe those that
end up maintaining these structures.
Adamson Winn-Gate
Venice


Cops should patrol
downtown on foot
Editor:
Boy, are we a lazy genera-
tion!
Venice has no less than 12
designated pedestrian cross-
walks in the three-block area
of downtown, yet we insist on
tramping nice plantings
between the east- and west-
bound lanes of West Venice
Avenue when a crosswalk is
only steps away.
Ironically, most of the peo-
ple I observe doing that could
use the exercise. Lardy, lardy

If we had some of our
finest on foot-patrol down-
town, that might discourage
some of that "jaywalking," in
addition to handling numer-
ous other traffic problems,
such as vehicles not yielding
to pedestrians in the cross-
walks.

In England if you use a
weapon to defend yourself
against someone who breaks
into your home, you go to jail.
Your assailant goes free. So if
we get this freedom we
should all thank the liberals
for their thoughtfulness.
After careful consideration,
I believe I will remain a con-
servative and just fight the
governments that be over
their lack of consideration for
our environment. After all, air
is still free, no thanks to liber-

12A VENICE GONDOLIER


TO
"' I t


Elections show the will of the people


Waterford support. I just read another diatribe here from
some anti-growth, no-growth individual. I found this very
offensive, because the individual claimed to represent "the will
of the people." Hogwash. This crowd represents the will of a
handful of grumpy old men and conspiracy-theory whackos.
It's time that policies are made based on the true will of the
people, as demonstrated in the last election. The candidates
put forward by the no-growth crowd were all resoundingly
defeated. I hope our elected officials realize that the true will of
the people isn't that of a handful of malcontents. My family
supports theWaterfront development; we think it's a great idea.


Teacher dress code. I un-
derstand that Manatee County
School Board is considering a
dress code for district school
teachers. Since teachers are
considered professionals, I
believe they should dress as
professionals. Teachers in
many cases are the role models
for our students. Proper dress
improves this image and
respect. The only problem with
the dress code for teachers is
the teacher's union will proba-
bly ask for a clothing allowance
at their next contract.
Thanks to Diane. Recently I
just finished coaching the
Venice big league team, which
is 16-, 17- and 18-year-olds
here inVenice. There are always
a lot of people who help out
behind the scenes and I know


we coaches get a lot of credit.
But I just wanted to give a spe-
cial thanks to Diane Iorio, who's
a player agent and a treasurer. I
couldn't have done this without
her. She went beyond the call of
duty. She made sure we had
uniforms, baseballs, all the
proper paperwork we needed.
She was running back and
forth fromVenice to Sarasota to
get player affidavits signed and
waivers signed and meet me at
places with paperwork so I
could have it properly for the
games. She just takes a lot of
her time with us, the big league,
the senior and the junior
league teams. She doesn't even
have a kid participating at that
level. Her husband and her son
also play at the Venice Little
League fields. I just wanted to

give her a thank-you and tell
her I appreciate it very much
and I think the other man-
agers do.
Confusing. Hey, please can
I have the old TV guide back
again? The new one is too
confusing.
Suspend service. IfVerizon
and Comcast allow you to
suspend service while many
snow birds are up North for
the summer months, I think
the city of Venice should put
the water, sewer and garbage
and recycling on a reduced
rate for the months residents
are away. Most snowbirds do
not qualify for the homestead
exemption break on their tax
bill, and are taxed on the
resale value of their residence.
New motto. Over 75? Don't
drive.
Skate night. There are a lot
of old folks here, but there are
kids, too, and there will be
more with the growth. A lot of
parents can't afford the Y and
expensive sport teams, espe-
cially since the cost of living
here is rapidly escalating and
wages are not. We need some-
thing simple and cheap for
the kids. They just spent mil-
lions to re-do the Venice
Community Center, but are
they planning anything there
for kids? I doubt it. Englewood
has a skate night every Friday
night at their community cen-
ter. Kids pay $3 and can roller
skate from 7-9 p.m. Why can't
we do something like that
here?


LETTERS from page 11 A
95 percent do not.
If I have piqued your cur-
iosity, here is the answer. Way
back in '64 the "Ban the Bomb-
ers" organized to get their mes-
sage out. It was decided a sym-
bol or logo was needed, and
thus the semaphore sign for N
and D were combined. This
symbol identified the wearers


as proponents for total Nuclear
Disarmament.
They rallied round their
cause, making a lot of noise
and in the process defiling the
soldiers, sailors, airmen and
Marines who were underwrit-
ing the very freedom for them
to speak freely in protest to the
government.
Today it is still as true as it
was back in the '60s; the "peace


symbol" is more accurately
defined as the footprint of the
American chicken.
The time for debating, and
arguing over our military pres-
ence in Iraq and Afghanistan
has long past. Support the
cause; support the gallant men
and women serving that cause.

VEDDER from page IiA


He really draws tough duty.
He takes speaking engage-
ments all over the world,
which makes for some pretty
nice trips. His presentation
was how countries are best
served by doing away with
graduated taxes and replac-
ing them with "value-added
taxes." Economic perfor-
mances of countries had vast-
ly improved with this switch.


By's Crack: A friend of
mine, a widower, who is
about to be married for the
third time and whose
bride-to-be has also previ-
ously been married, wrote
on the bottom of the wed-
ding invitation I received,
"Don't fail to come. This is
no amateur performance."


I didn't know that I had a
member of the Taxpayers
League (the big one, at that)
in my family. I guess Herb
Levine would be happy about
that.

It is good to see that Venice
High is hoping to get a full-
time drug dog. It has decided


to take on the drug challenge
a little more aggressively than
most and have a "passive"
drug dog.
Being passive doesn't
mean it sleeps all the time; it
just is not trained to attack,
like some drug dogs. I hope
this is coupled with a lot of
other aggressive ways at get-
ting at this huge problem.
My hat's off to Candy
Millington on this first step.

Today's Ism: By the time I
got to greener pastures I
couldn't climb tile fence.

Venice has another watch-
dog group the Venice
Neighborhood Coalition -
that is keeping a close eye on
some things important to that
group and manyVenetians.
The group's first project
was to try to reduce the uses
of the new park next to
Sharky's. On their first project
the members got more than
2,000 signatures supporting
their position.
Most of the leaders live on
the island of Venice, near the
airport. Some are taxpayers
league members but a lot
aren't. They share many of the


same concerns, although
they seem less negative and
more understanding of other
points of view.
The three issues that they
are concentrating on are:
height and density; airport
noise, and which runways are
used; and transportation.
**a***
Isn't the Venice Community
Center beautiful? Although it
has been expensive, it should
be really a valuable resource for
our community.
It will be interesting to see if
those groups thatwere made to
move will come back, or if they
like their new homes better. In
its last full year of operation the
community center had 188,000
visitors.
I think we will find much
greater use as groups that
used to go to Sarasota for
nicer surroundings will be
using this. For instance the
hospital used to hold func-
tions there.

"X-RAY", THE BEGINNING
SIn 1895, Professor Wilhelm Roentgen, a German physicist, was!

Child protection initiative unveiled by attorney general


STAFF REPORT


Attorney General Charlie
Crist and Macy's have teamed
up to create "SafeSteps to
Protect Florida's Children, A
Parent's Guide to Online
Safety, Child Abduction and


Runaway Issues" with the
assistance of the National
Center for Missing and Ex-
ploited Children.
The guide, officially titled,
"SafeSteps to Protect Florida's
Children, A Parent's Guide to
Online Safety, Child Abduc-


tion and Runaway Issues,"
was provided through Macy's
generous support. Macy's
has further committed to
continue to work with At-
torney General Crist on pro-
moting child safety by mak-
ing SafeSteps available in all


of its stores throughout
Florida. The booklet will also
be available online at the
attorney general's Web site at
myfloridalegal.com.
SafeSteps covers a number
of important issues, including
tips on children and comput-


er use, a glossary of terms
used by children on the Inter-
net and recommendations for
keeping children safe from dif-
ferent types of threats.
"Nothing is more impor-
tant than protecting our chil-
dren," said Crist.


The design of,the SafeSteps
booklet was undertaken by the
attorney general's Office in con-
junction with Ron Sachs Com-
munications ofTallahassee.
It is available online at:
myfloridalegal.com/ChildSaf
ety.pdf.


New government check scam


STAFF REPORT

Attorney General Charlie
Crist warns Floridians to
avoid a new scam that has
surfaced in Florida and at
least 17 other states over the
past week involving forged
documents that appear to be
official checks issued by the
state of Arkansas. The scam
can victimize individuals or
businesses that cash the
checks, costing the victims
several thousand dollars.
The scam targets individu-
als who post resumes online,
primarily at the Career-
builder.com Web site. These
individuals receive e-mail
messages that purport to be
from a European computer
company interested in hiring
them. The "company" claims
to do business with clients in
the United States but needs
someone in the U.S. to help
process checks it has received
from those clients. One of the
supposed clients is the state
ofArkansas.
If the target agrees, he is
sent two forged state of


Arkansas checks made out in
his name, one for $2,800 and
the other for $2,400. The
checks are high-grade forg-
eries of an actual state of
Arkansas check and may not
be detected until they are
rejected by a bank, by which
time it is too late. Unlike a
more common check-cash-
ing scheme, in which victims
are instructed to deposit a
check into their own account
and then wire money from
that account, in this scam the
recipients are told to cash the
checks and then wire most of
the money to the "company."
One sure sign of the scam,
Crist said, is that the recipi-
ents are directed to avoid'
banks and instead use check-
cashing businesses, liquor
stores or similar businesses
willing to convert the "Arkan-
sas" check into cash. As a re-
sult, Florida businesses that
agree to cash the bogus
checks risk losing the entire
amount when the state of
Arkansas treasury refuses to
honor them.
"This is yet another exam-


pie of scam artists targeting
trusting citizens in order to
steal their money," said Crist.
"This scam takes the public's
confidence in checks issued
by the government and turns
it on its head. Floridians and
Florida businesses should be
diligent to make sure they are
not victimized by this auda-
cious scheme."
According to the Arkansas
Attorney General's Office, the
scam appears to be based in
Turkey, with possible connec-
tions to Latvia and Russia.
Arkansas is working with
federal authorities to investi-
gate, and has determined that
so far the scam has quickly
spread throughout the na-
tion. While reports of check
sitings in Florida have sur-
faced, the Attorney General's
Office has not yet received
complaints from any victims.

"It's an honor to receive the 'Best Real Estate Site' award.
We are strong proponents of the idea that knowledge is
power, and it's a priority for us to provide the knowledge that
helps people buy and sell smarter," said Manuel J. Iraola,

want a more active role in real estate transactions and basic
listings and photos are not enough. Our customers tell us
they want information that supports successful transactions,
so we continually add new content to help people make
better decisions and act with confidence."
"We believe all Ektron customers are winners, and extend
special recognition to this year's Ektron All-Stars," says
Ektron CEO Bill Rogers. "With Ektron's flexible, quick-to-
deploy, easy-to-use technology, they've reaped immediate

Ideas abound at the Southern Living Idea House at Victoria Park. One of the three 2005

Here are some easy tips from the Idea House that you can try at home:
SDisplay pots and pans with style. Hang pots on a bare wall for convenience and easy access.
Mount shelves above the sink. Glass shelves can hold houseplants and
glassware, while giving the kitchen a clean and colorful appearance.
*Create an interesting look on the ceiling. A leather-inspired faux finish
ceiling heightens the appeal in the family room of the Idea House. To
achieve this look, start with a rich-colored base coat, brush an oil-based
glaze on top, and then rag it off.
Get hooked on style. Use a slatted wall with hooks and shelves to hold
S I purses, hats, and more. Items you use more often should remain accessi-

'You've

Got Mail'

If you've seen this movie a
hundred times like I have you
know all about the "Little
Shop Around the Corner." It's
a book store owned by
Kathleen Kelly in the movie.
I was thrilled when I learn-
ed Joan Williams sold the
Venice little shop around the
corner to a teacher who plans
to make the store even bet-
ter. Nancy Garland and her
daughters Jennifer Hardacre
and Beth Garland plan to
have the coffee pot on all day
at the Bookshop on Venice
Avenue. Be sure to stop in.
You'll want to find out about
their book clubs.
All good things must end
The Venice Gondolier Bar-
bershop Chorus sang a final
farewell to Nick Blitva, their
director for the past 2 years.
Nick and his wife Carol are
moving to York, Pennsylvania
to enjoy some' winter snow
and their family. Since, we all
know the Show must go on,
the group contracted Leon
Frayer as their director. Leon
has been barbershopping for
many years so the group is
destined to continue to make
sure the hills are alive with the
sounds of music.
Paint the town red
Karen Hitt tells me the
Venice Art Center plans to
have some evening classes
this new season. Karen, Bill
Farnsworth and Hodges
Soileau will be teaching and
hoping working people will
use this opportunity to relax
and add color to their lives.
The Art Center starts its
season the week after Labor
Day with the fall Members
Show.
Flying High
You can always find Jim
Stuthers sitting in the stands
cheering for the Venice Indi-
ans baseball team. These days
Jim is also cheering for his
Mighty Eighth Air Force Team
and their fall reunion sched-
uled at the Holiday Inn Venice
in October. As chair of the
event, Jim looks forward to
showing everyone a good time
in Venice. The group plans a
bus tour of Venice MainStreet,
the Jetties and the old WWII
Airfield Gate on the Island of
Venice. The reunion dates are
Nov 17-20. Call Jim at 941-492-
5599 for information.
Around town
Sheila Kaufer has joined
the Sun Fiesta team with plen-
ty of new ideas. Sheila is the
youth librarian at the Frances
T. Bourne Jacaranda Library.
Laura Bennawy and Jackie
Kennedy invite everyone to
visit them at sunfiesta.net.
Joyce Wright, Trisha
Sorbello, Annette Caldwell
and Joy Mahler, are working
on making this year's Big
Brothers and Big Sisters Lively
Arts Auction bigger and better
than ever. These ladies know
how to get the job done. If you
would like to donate or help,

There is only one person
in town who knows Robert
Fields and that is Wes
Schumacher, Music Director
of the Venice Symphony.
Many many years ago, Robert
Fields sold Mr. and Mrs.
Schumacher a $75 clarinet for
their son Wes and the rest is
history.

SThe LCA had its origin in 1969 when res-
idents joined together to attempt to have
street lights installed in their neighbor-
hood. After paying $400 to Florida Power
and Light and agreeing to pay the monthly
'bills for the lighting, the Laurel neighbor-
hood and the newly formed Laurel Civic
Association had successfully completed
their first community project.


Terry's neighborhood is southeast of the
U.S. 41 and Laurel Road intersection. The
natural cul-de-sac neighborhood has
access off Laurel Road on Old Trail,
Anderson and Forest streets and from
Collins Road on U.S. 41.
Terry, 57, has lived her entire life in this

STAFF REPORT

Applications for the South-

ment District's Community
Education Grant program are

pertaining to conservation,
protection and preservation.
Government agencies, pri-
vate individuals, educational
facilities, business and indus-
try, neighborhoods, home-
owner and service organiza-
tions, research and other
profit and non-profit organi-
zations are encouraged to
apply.
This is the ninth year the
district is offering the grants,
which are funded by the
District's Basin Boards.
Projects should involve
and educate on any or all of
the following issues: alterna-
tive water resources, water
quality, water conservation,
flood protection, natural sys-

Portion distortion: supersizing America!

CAROLINE J. CEDERQUIST M.D.
!'"" COLUMNIST

Ah, the good life. Dining
out, shopping for clothes,
dining out, shopping for
clothes, dining out, shop ...
wait a minute. Is there a pat-
tern here?
Americans are eating out
more and more, and leading
researchers say that's a big
part of why so many of us are
overweight. The biggest part
of that big part? Big portions!
When we eat out, we are
usually getting a portion of
food that is double, or even
three or four times the size of
what is considered a normal
serving.
Many restaurant meals
are upward of 1,000 calories
for a single meal. Remember
what a big deal the Quarter
Pounder was when it was
introduced in the 1970s?
Nowadays, it's not surprising
to see one-third and one-half
pound burgers on a menu.
And it's not just at restau-
rants. Grocery stores, bak-
eries, delis, everywhere, the
portions are simply balloon-
ing. Remember when a muf-
fin was roughly the size of a
cupcake? Not anymore.
Yet researchers find, we're
still eating the whole thing,
whatever the thing, without
comprehending the alarming
increase in our daily caloric
intake.
It's not that restaurants
and food producers ae' de-

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I recently attended a
meeting where a man put a
microphone in the middle
of the table. He said he had
a hearing loss and this
would help him hear the
group. What was he using?
A. That was a personal FM
system which is usually used
by persons with severe
hearing loss. Most likely, his
behind-the-ear hearing aids
were fit with a special snap
on "boot" that allowed his
hearing aids to receive
information directly from the
microphone on the table. It's
as if the man had his own
personal FM radio station.
He could receive the voices
of the group members, not
through the air as normally
hearing persons do, but by
listening to the radio signal
his hearing aid was picking
up. The microphones used
with FM systems can be put
directly on a table or
podium, worn around the
neck on a loop or clipped to
a speaker's lapel. These are
just a few ways a personal
FM system can assist those
with hearing loss. To
discover the ways an FM
system could benefit you,

Balance Centers at

County reminds residents height


of hurricane season is now upon us


STAFF REPORT


Last Saturday marked the
one-year anniversary of Hur-
ricane Charley making land-
fall in neighboring Charlotte
County, and Sarasota County
Emergency Management re-
minds residents that Sara-
sota County is entering the
most active portion of hurri-
cane season.
In a typical hurricane sea-
son, about 90-95 percent of
all named storms develop
from about the second week
of August through the third
week of October, according


to ImpactWeather, a weather
service used by Sarasota
County.
Hurricanes Charley, Fran-
ces, Ivan and Jeanne all im-
pacted Southwest Florida be-
tween mid-August and late
September of last year.
National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration ex-
perts are predicting an even
busier 2005 hurricane sea-
son, with as many as 21 trop-
ical storms and 11 hurricanes
- seven of them ballooning
into intense storms.
"The most important thing
for people to know is their


evacuation zone," said Sara-
sota County Interim Emer-
gency Management Chief
Chuck Johnston. "That will
help them decide whether
they should stay or go when
a storm approaches."
Besides knowing their
evacuation zones and the
location of neighborhood
shelters, people should pre-
pare by stocking up on sup-
plies, a first-aid kit, a 72-
hour disaster kit, and emer-
gency food and water;

liberately trying to make us
fat. They're just trying to pro-
tect their market share of
your food dollars, and to do
that, they look for ways to
improve value and appeal for
their consumers.
Actual food ingredients
are relatively cheap, com-
pared with packaging, labor,
rent, research, marketing,
lobbying, advertising and all
the other expenses of bring-
ing you that meal or snack.
So from their end, it's just
good business to give you
more and make you feel like
you're getting a deal. Every-
one loves a bargain, and good
value keeps us coming back.
The regular old 7-Eleven
soda grew into a Gulp, and
then a Big Gulp and then a
Super Gulp. The basic Amer-
ican hamburger and fries
meal got supersized, then
double-sized.
But no matter how big
they get, we keep eating
whatever is served. With that
much more food passing as
a single meal, they might as
well call it trouble-sized.
Many of us were raised
hearing the admonition to
clean that plate and we feel
obligated to finish whatever
is served, whether or not
Mom is still watching.
So take a plate full of way
more food than we need,
together with the training to
eat more than we might even
want, and you have a pretty
reliable recipe for over-eating,
and hence, weight gain.
But perhaps the most im-
portant consequence of all
the commercial supersizing
is what it's done to our per-
ception of appropriate por-
tions.
As we get used to seeing
those big portions when we
eat out, we tend to recreate
them in our home kitchens,
so that even when we do our
own cooking, we again serve


ourselves more than we need,
or even should have.
Researchers found that of
all the places where we're
getting bigger portions, fast
food servings have grown
the most, followed by those
we dish up at home. Our
sense of appropriate servings
has simply been distorted.
So what to do? When
you're at home, fill the plates
from the stove and bring
them to the table. Repeated
studies have shown that if
the food is within arm's
reach, we'll eat it. But if we've
got to go and get it, we are
less likely to have more.
And before you do go for
seconds, just sit a few mo-
ments and let your body
catch up. It takes about 30
minutes for the hormones
that signal satiety to get the
message from the- stomach
to the brain.
When eating out, just
imagine that every meal you
order has a notation in the
menu that says "serves two."
Decide how much you want
to eat at the beginning of the
meal, and before you even
start, put the rest in that
take-home container.
And when you've had
enough, stop. Being satisfied
doesn't mean feeling stuffed,
and enjoying a good meal
shouldn't leave you uncom-
fortable afterward. That
mountain of mashed pota-
toes isn't Mt. Everest, and
you don't have to eat it just
"because it's there."
And 'finally, whether
you're driving through, or
sitting inside, or even order-
ing delivery, always resist the
temptation to supersize.
-It may seem like a great
bargain at the moment, but
in the long run, you end up
paying for the extra calories,
not with those extra few

spearheaded the effort to get
the governor's office to bring
public awareness to a trou-
bling trend in blood dona-
tions, not only statewide but
nationally. The governor's
office is asking anyone eligi-
ble to please give. This gift
allows us to save lives with
little or no effort and no
financial gift. There is no
substitute for the miracle of
giving life.
All blood types are in
short supply, but O negative,


the most widely used in
emergencies is extremely
low. (Hospital emergencies
can use 50 units of 0 nega-

blood is in very short supply
nationwide.
You must be in good
health, weigh a minimum of
110 pounds, and be 17 years
of age or older. Donations
take only 30-45 minutes and
are a great benefit to your

Venice and Indian folk lore


We, who live in an assisted
living community, are in a
way one big family. Last sum-
mer, four of our veteran
C.N.A.s (Certified .Nursing
Assistants) lost part or all of
their homes to Hurricane
Charley, and we all felt badly
for their emotional turmoil.
Pam, Pat, Denise and Jay all
lived in Port Charlotte, right
where the eye of the hurri-
cane passed through. Pat was
in the house alone, with her
cat. When she heard glass
shattering around her, she
realized the breaking of glass
was not important, It was
only her life that mattered

When the terrifying experi-
ence was over she got up the
nerve to look outside. There
.were four roofs in her back
yard, but none were hers. She
rented an apartment in
Venice until her home was
repaired.
Jay and Denise suffered
much less damage. The two
of them, their dog and bird
hovered in the shower until
the storm passed. As they
held onto each other they felt
the walls of the house shake,
and wondered if it-would col-
lapse around them. For-
tunately, it didn't. But their
French doors blew open, and
everything in the living room,
even the TV was dumped into
the swimming pool by the
whims of Charley! Can you
imagine the experience of
feeling your whole house
shake around you, and hear-
ing that incredible roar?
Pam's husband had care-
fully prepared for the storm,
boarding up the entire house,
except for the front door. After
all, they had to get in and out.

was working here taking care
of the residents, but her hus-
band and two teenage daugh-
ters were at home. They put a
mattress over them to protect
them from injury. The roof fell
in, along with the front of
their home. The inside of
their home was gutted by the
wind and rain, but they were
unhurt. For a while after the
hurricane, each member of
the family found shelter in a
different home. They had a
FEMA trailer in their back
yard for nine months while

and her husband chose
Venice because they thought
it was a safe haven as a result
of the Indian burial grounds.
Helen, another aide, rein-
forces this folklore by relating
that she had been told that
the Indians in the southern
part of the state came to
Venice when a big storm was
brewing, as this area was con-
sidered "safe."
Some reports indicate that
some hurricanes touched
Venice in 1960 and 1966, but
the damage was minimal,
(especially compared with
the storms last year).
Don't let me lull you into
complacency. Remember,
this is a column of "stories."
Maybe Venice really is pro-
tected by the Indian spirits,
and maybe not. Let's hope it
is. The Indian lore stories are
certainly fun to believe.

Millions unprepared for


retirement health-care costs


STAFF REPORT

According to a survey by
Destiny Health, Americans
are not saving nearly enough
for health-care needs in their
retirement years and are at
risk of ending up indigent, in
bankruptcy or lacking ade-
quate medical care.
Overall retirement savings
are too low to begin with and
respondents estimated they
were setting aside a mere 20
percent of that amount for the
health care costs they will
encounter. There was a trou-
bling lack of awareness of how
great those expenses will be.
"This is a crisis," said Des-
tiny Health CEO Scott Spiker.
"A perfect storm is brewing
and the question is will Amer-
icans save enough to weather
that storm.",
The combination of low
savings, rising health care
costs, declining Medicare
coverage, the trend toward
privatization and a steady


drop in employers offering
health coverage adds up to a
recipe for disaster, according
to Spiker.
For example, according to
the survey data, only 54 per-
cent are saving anything at all
to meet the typical health
care costs they will face in
retirement and just 33 per-
cent are putting money away
for long-term care expenses.
Citing survey results on
how people believe their re-
tirement health care would be
funded, Spiker said the prob-
lem is at least partially rooted
in unrealistic expectations: 52
percent of the respondents
are counting on Medicare or
other health insurance, while
35 percent expect to pay for it
themselves through savings
or investments.
And, ironically, while more
survey respondents said they
were concerned about health
care expenses in retirement
than about day-to-day living
expenses or recreation, fewer


reported saving for medical
costs than for less urgent
needs. Specifically, 78 percent
said they are saving for day-
to-day expenses, but only 54
percent reported putting
money away for health care.
Taken together, the num-
bers make a compelling case
for Health Savings Accounts
and similar vehicles that can
be used for covering current
expenses, but that can also be
set aside, tax-free for use in
retirement.
"The number of people
opening these accounts is
growing, which is encourag-
ing," Spiker said. "It's a start, but
the survey makes it clear we've
still got a long way to go."
According to Spiker, peo-
ple need to look at the big pic-
ture, taking into account all of
the components of health
care costs in retirement, from
"Medi-gap" insurance premi-
ums, the possibility of re-
duced Medicare coverage and
prescription drug co-pays.

Volunteers needed to avert crisis


BY KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST WRITER

This past January 17 peo-
ple called looking for a ride to
the doctor, grocery store, VA
clinic, or some other impor-
tant destination. It now
increases each month. Last
month (July) we received 87
requests. We could help only
eight with our volunteer dri-
vers. How did the other 79 get
to their appointments? I don't
know, but some cried on the
phone. We paid for some
rides like medical care or the
trips to the VA hospital, but
those funds are very limited.
The transportation fund-
ing for the Senior Friendship
Centers buses was cut by
$80,000 in this year's budget.


The SCAT +Plus Para trans-
portation system is over-
whelmed. The SCAT fixed
route system is too limited
and not elder friendly.
What are we to do? Our
best help has, come from the
few fantastic volunteer dri-
vers who step up to the chal-
lenge and not only drive their
own cars but also give time
waiting for the elders medical
appointment to be complet-
ed. Or they help with the food
shopping and load and un-
load their purchases.
Because of this crisis in
transportation many elders
are sitting at home unable to
attend any social activities.
These activities are not con-
sidered life sustaining. Yet,
time after time, we find those


severely isolated elders in the
most trouble. If one is alone
and isolated, devoid of hu-
man interaction, depression
soon follows and frequently
dementia. This is a terrible
price to pay for lack of a ride.
Many of these elders gave
up their cars knowing they
were no longer safe drivers.
They never expected to give
up their life too.
Will you help us? Call 584-
0063 today and become a vol-
unteer driver for the Friend-
ship At Home/Faith in Action
program. Give someone his
or her life back.

eyes, kidneys, heart and ex-
tremities. Since much of the
work of managing diabetes
rests on the individual, it is
essential that those living
with diabetes have the skills
and resources to effectively
balance insulin (medication),
food intake and physical
activity on a daily basis and to
monitor progress at regular
intervals.
The Community Health
Improvement Partnership
(CHIP) community health
assessment found that adults


living with chronic health
problems such as diabetes
are often isolated and lack a
support system. They may
also be home-bound or with-
out transportation to get to
medical appointments. Re-
search' suggests these issues
can be overcome with out-
reach programs that include
home visits from a nurse and
other health-care profession-
als.
The goal of the study is to
determine the effectiveness
of an integrated home-based


approach to diabetes man-
agement.
Participants in the study
will receive individualized
care plans and free blood
work relevant to the study,
including Hemoglobin A1C
testing, a measure of blood
sugar control.
Residents of Laurel, Osprey,
Venice and Nokomis who
believe they qualify for this

National Trust promotes heritage



tourism with annual list of America's



Dozen Distinctive Destinations


STAFF REPORT


From a charming coastal
New England town most
famous for its tragic past, to
the Chicago suburb that's
home to the largest collection
of Frank Lloyd Wright build-
ings, to a former Arizona gold
mining camp now rediscov-
ered as an artist colony,
America offers alternative
vacation destinations that
symbolize an increasing ded-
ication to historic preserva-
tion. In recognition of this
travel trend, The National
Trust for Historic Preser-
vation, .the country's largest
private, nonprofit preserva-
tion organization, recently
announced the selection of
its 2005 Dozen Distinctive
Destinations, an annual list of
unique and lovingly pre-
served communities in the
United States.
"Today's traveler has high
expectations, which is why
heritage tourism has become
so popular," said Richard
Moe, president of the Na-
tional Trust for Historic Pres-
ervation. "These 12 cities rep-
resent a truly distinctive slice
of America and offer striking
alternatives to Anyplace,
U.S.A. By revitalizing their
downtown and protecting
their unique heritage, these
communities have preserved
their sense of place and char-
acter."
Dozen Distinctive Destin-
ations is an annual list of
unique and lovingly pre-
served communities in the
United States. The 12 destina-
tions were selected from
nearly 80 destinations in 44
states that were nominated
by individuals, preservation
organizations and local com-
munities.


This is the sixth time the
National Trust for Historic
Preservation has announced
a list of Dozen Distinctive
Destinations. There are 72
Dozen Distinctive Destin-
ations located in 36 states
throughout the country. To
see a complete list, visit
nationaltrust.org. In each
community, residents have
taken forceful-action to pro-
tect their town's character and
sense of place. Whether by
enacting a local preservation
law to protect historic build-
ings against demolition, re-
writing zoning codes to pre-
vent commercial sprawl, re-
moving regulatory barriers to
downtown housing, making
downtown areas more walka-
ble, enacting design stan-
dards, or taking some other
major step that demonstrates
a strong commitment to their
town, residents have worked
hard to preserve the historic
and scenic assets of their
communities, with rewards
that transcend town limits.
The cities and towns on
the 2005 list of America's
Dozen Distinctive Destin-
ations are:

Restrooms in Baltic, Scandinavian and some European countries at their convenience


BY ROGER BUTTON
CORRESPONDENT


If you have ever visited a
Scandinavian, Baltic or
European country you will
know that one of the best kept
secrets is where they hide and
who they admit to their wash-
rooms. It seems the Swedes,
Finnish, Danish, Europeans
and even the Russians con-
sider payment is due for use
of the proverbial service no
matter whether you are male
of female.
It has become a highly
profitable business for local
government and some canny
individuals. I wa's particularly
amused at the entrepreneur-
ial skills of this happy Russian
lady and her business, which I
aptly named Ma's Potties. She
sat patiently touting very suc-
cessfully for business, and
even gave me a big smile as I
photographed her waiting the
arrival of her next customers
for the "dollar a visit" service
fee to use her portable conve-
niences. With increased
tourism she has a potential
customer base of thousands
who are daily transported by
tourist buses to this unique

historical venue, Saint Peters-
burg's Church of the Spilled
Blood.
It was not so easy in
Helsinki, where I discovered
to my dismay after delaying a
visitation it was necessary to
obtain a special coin from the
small restaurant. I had visited
for lunch. To add insult to
injury I then had to stand
somewhat impatiently in line
in front of the only public toi-
let, with three others who
appeared in need of instant
relief.
In Estonia it was easier,
although unfortunately I have
to admit I did not encounter
any public facilities. Using
skills and.experience from
many years of traveling, my
wife and I visited the largest
hotel in the capital city of
Tallinn for morning coffee
and took advantage of their
free services.
It proved to be more diffi-
cult in Stockholm where after
purchasing a very nice sand-
wich lunch from a delightful
outdoor cafe in the city center
park my wife returned in a
very agitated state after learn-

delay her needs I received a
most abrupt unrepeatable
torrent of annoyance as she
demanded coins of Swedish
currency, of which of course I
had none! Apparently cafe
customers had to use the
public park facilities and so,
while continuing to enjoy my
freshly made sandwich I
handed her dollars and euros
to exchange for the now des-
perately needed coinage to
enter the gated tall, iron-
fenced-in lavatory. Later,
while watching the ceremoni-
al changing of the guard at the
palace, complete with the reg-
imental band, with my sleuth
skills I discovered the ladies
and gentleman joint facilities
that had a coin payment sys-
tem. However, the controller

Literacy volunteers help newcomers to the country learn English


BY AL JOHNSON
GUEST WRITER


Alicia and Maria Perez left
Monterrey, Mexico, six years
ago seeking a better life.
Major pieces of that new life
were here for them in one
package. Family members
helped them to settle and find
work in Englewood where
they met the young men who
are now their husbands.
Alicia's married name is Tor-
res and Maria's is Cazares.
Eshder Bird, a Literacy Vol-
unteer tutor, helped them to
interact more broadly with
their new community: She
taught them to read and write
English.
"I wanted to learn English
so that I could read to my
daughter," Alicia Torres said.
"Esther is the best. Because of
her I can read the newspapers
and books."

Bird said the sisters were
amazed and thrilled to learn

endless variety of books.
Torres and Cazares have
received certificates of
achievement from the Lit-

Our Mother's House



ready to be a home again


STAFF REPORT


Our Mother's House, a resi-
dential Catholic Charities pro-
gram' for homeless mothers
and their at-risk children,
opened its doors to needy
families after a long period of
new building construction
and renovation of the existing
facility.
"It feels great to have the
construction phase over so
we can now devote our time
fully to the program and its
clients," said Nancy Shoe-
maker, director of Catholic
Charities of Sarasota County.
Our Mother's House serves
mothers and their children
with low-cost apartment liv-
ing in a safe and nurturing,
yet stimulating community
environment.
The goal is to promote
the healthy development of
mothers and children through
support services that provide
the opportunity to develop
parenting skills and gain
economic self-sufficiency.


Mothers pay minimal rent
and are required to enroll in
an educational or vocational
program while their children
have an educational experi-
ence in the day care provided
on site.
"It was a miracle that we
were able to construct a new
building and renovate the
old building simultaneously
thus only interrupting ser-
vices over one period," said
Peter Routsis-Arroyo, presi-
dent of Catholic Charities,
Diocese of Venice. "Now we
look to the local community
to regenerate their devotion
to the program through vol-
unteering and donations.
Without our supporters, this
program would nbt be able
to survive."
Because of the construc-
tion and renovation, Our
Mother's House will be able
to serve more families and
offer expanded services, said
to Routsis-Arroyo. The pro-
gram also will be enhanced
with a newly acquired Hous-


ing and Urban Development
(HUD) grant,.one of only two
very competitive grants given
in the community. These
funds, which will help cover
operations expenses, enable
Catholic Charities to com-
plement services of Our
Mother's House and enhance
the dedication to Catholic
social teaching about the
value of all life.
According to Shoemaker,
there have been a number of
staff changes, including. a
new program director. Joyce
Scott, who has considerable
experience with transitional
living programs for young
women, will head up Our
Mother's House.
"We are very excited about
the bright future of this impor-
tant program," said Routsis-
Arroyo.

mation about Catholic Char-
ities, Diocese of Venice visit

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


TERRY from page;lB


or Osprey.
Terry's parents also lived in
the community their entire
lives: "My mother came here
when she was 3; she grew up
where Mission Valley is. That
was the whole black commu-
nity ... with a church and a
school and everything, but it
was turpentine still, so they
didn't own the houses they
lived in over there." Tur-
pentine refers to the turpen-


there. That's not a bad thing,
that's just the way it is," she
says with a simple accep-
tance.
Although Terry acknowl-
edges she has had personal
experiences with racism, she
declines to offer any specific
examples.
Housing and her
neighborhood
Affordable housing is an-
other of Terry's passions, "I've
been screaming, yelling,
working every way I can for


no other natural cul-de-sac
around here except this one,"
she states.
The fact that the neigh-
borhood is a natural cul-de-
sac leads Terry to believe it
is a prime location for a
housing development.
When asked to define who
she believes the "vultures"
are, she calmly responds,
"The people with money."
The beginning
Laurel was established in
1903 when Wilson E. Step-


the area.
Although Terry seems
hopeful that her neighbor-
hood will remain and not
give way to developers, she
also is aware of the realities
of growth: "I don't see it going
anywhere right now, but this
is a really old community. If
I were to drive you down the
street and point out the wid-
ows, it would be most of this
street because those people
are now in their 80s and 90s."
As far as those "vultures"
Terry claims are in her Laurel


cussions with Michael W.
Miller, founder, director and
president of Waterford Com-
panies, about preserving the
neighborhood.
Terry's desire to work with
anyone who will help aid her
in preserving this community,
has been her life's work. Terry
has been executive director of
the LCA since 1998.
"I'm going to do my best to
... try to compete as much as
I can to save the community
from the people with the
money. God knows we don't


this is countywide, it's like...
I don't know where they
think the old neighbor-
hoods are going to go. Are
they just going to disappear
one day and nobody will
have to worry about it?"
Thoughts on the media
When asked about her
relations with the press, Terry
rolls her eyes as a smile
comes to her face.
Speaking first of this
newspaper, Terry states, "The
Gondolier's always been


Sandra Sims Terry


tine companies that at the
turn of the 20th century
owned hundreds of acres of
land in Laurel. The compa-
nies typically leased the land
and built housing, schools
and churches for the largely
black workforce.
Terry's father was the Rev.
James Clarence Sims, a re-
spected community leader,
died earlier this year. Her
mother, 84, still lives in
Laurel.
Finding a way to get things
done is Terry's objective;
never letting race or other
factors keep this woman, who
appears filled with a deep
passion for her community,
from accomplishing her
goals.
"I wasn't raised to see
color, I never have and I prob-
ably never will," says Terry
matter of factly.
"I didn't live my life,as a
black person. I don't know if
you can understand that. I
guess I've been lucky enough
not to have to deal in my
everyday life with a bunch of
bigots. Now, saying that, I can
give you some racist situa-
tions I've been in," she adds.
Terry does believe that
racism continues to exist.
"People come down here
and Florida is de facto segre-
gated anyway, period. The
whole state is and Sarasota
County has always been
de facto segregated," Terry
smiles.
"Did you know Florida
was the most racist state in
the Union? Lots of people
think it was Alabama or
Mississippi. No, you're sitting
in it," she adds.
But Terry believes racism
is manifesting itself in differ-
ent ways than in the past.
She expands on this, adding,
"That's where Sarasota
County is ... they call it
economic racism or what-
ever. Because you really don't
have to worry about too
much racism in Sarasota
County; economics takes
care of it for you."
"If you build a subdivi-
sion with half-million dollar
houses in it, you're kind of
sure of who's going to be


affordable housing now, for,
I guess, six or seven years."
The LCA has an Affordable
Housing Program, which
develops new housing or
purchases and rehabilitates
existing homes. The homes
are then offered to low-
income, first-time home buy-
ers whose family income falls
between 60 to 70 percent of
the median income.
The program is recognized
by the Sarasota Office of
Housing and. Community
Development as a certified
Housing Development Org-
anization. This designation
allows the LCA to access
funding for developing af-
fordable housing and to gain
access to increased down
payment assistance for home
buyers.
Even with this program,
however, Terry is concerned


hens applied for a Post Office
permit. Almost all of the orig-
inal 21 residents belonged
to one of two families,
the Stephenses and the
Blackburns, according to
"A Historical, Architectural


and Archaeological Survey of
the Laurel Target Area," a doc-
ument prepared for Sarasota
County in 1993 by Arch-
aeological Consultants Inc.
Also according to the doc-
ument, it was in the 1910s


neighborhood, she says
investors are, in her view, def-
initely interested in the area.
"Been interested, God, they
trip over each other every
day."
"They will stop you walk-


ing down the street. They
want to know who owns what
and where. It's been going on
now for a couple of years,"
adds Terry with a sense of
frustration.
Yet, the seemingly always


have any," she adds, with an
acceptance of the reality of
her situation.
Reflecting on her life and
the history of this neighbor-
hood, Terry adds, "This is the
first place around here where
black people actually owned
their own land."
Her goals for her neighbor-
hood in Laurel seem simple
enough.
"I'm trying to make sure
people know that housing
(consists of) ill these old
people, who need their hous-
es fixed and are just happy
to have a toilet that flushes.
They don't need a swimming
pool," says Terry.
Terry's concern extends
beyond her neighborhood
as she speaks about older
neighborhoods throughout
Sarasota County, "Every-
thing you read is about the


The Sanrdra Sims Terry Community Center, 509 Collins Road, Laurel opened in 1994.


about her small neighbor-
hood in Laurel and what its
future may be.
"The vultures are circling
now. I know that there is


when a significant black
population was established
in Laurel. This was due in
part to the turpentine com-
panies being established in


optimistic Terry is working
with area community leaders
and developers to ensure her
neighborhood is around for a
long time. Terry has had dis-


people who might come
here or the people who are
coming here or the new
people, but the old neigh-
borhoods that are here, and


good, it's been a good home-
town paper."
She adds, however, "But
your paper won't deliver in
my community."
In fact, the Gondolier Sun
does not deliver to Collins
Road and nine streets that
run off of that road in Laurel.
According to Gondolier
Sun Circulation Manager
Karen Gardner, The
Gondolier Sun wants to
deliver to every area, includ-
ing this section of Laurel.
Delivery does not take place
there, Gardner explains,
because "Carriers (who are
independent contractors)
are afraid and un-
comfortable because they
are unsure of what kind
of situation they will run
into."
Laurel Civic Association
Under Terry's leadership,
the LCA conducts many
programs at the community
center in Laurel.
A summer reading pro-
gram started in 2003 had 125
children enrolled, and a
homework-assistance pro-
gram has enrolled as many
as 65 children.
The LCA's Affordable
Housing Program, a commu-
nity clean-up and adopt-a-
road program have been
ongoing 'since the early
1990s.
The group also adminis-
ters programs ranging from a
Kids Cafe, which serves
meals to up to 50 children
after school four days a
week, to adult exercise class-
es.
The wide range, of pro-
grams operated by the LCA
reflects Sandra Sims Terry's
belief in a well-rounded com-
munity effort. Speaking of
her neighborhood in particu-
lar, her love for her town as a
whole becomes apparent,
"When I think of Laurel, I
think of Laurel from Dona
Bay to Oscar Scherer and
Blackburn Bay to Myakka.
That's Laurel to me."
