Tearing down a piece of history


Eagle Point Club tries
to opt out of agreement
that requires historic
preservation of
national landmark.
BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

A water tower that doesn't
have a tank, and a pump
house that doesn't work ma\
sound useless to the average
person.
For those who remember
Eagle Point Club as a luxury
resort, that water tank and
pump house memorialize a
place that helped put Venice
on the national map 90 y-ears
ago.
The Eagle Point Club
Homeowners Association
does not think that masters
and has askedthe city for per-
mission to demolish the
water tower and pump house.
SAndtheymake this request
despite a 1991 annexation
agreement that requires the
homeowners association to
levy whatever fees are needed
to maintain, rehabilitate and
preserve the.historic struc-
tures.
The Eagle Point Club site
was listed on the National
Register of Historical Places
15 years ago.
"There is no longer a tank
on the remnant of the tower,"
wrote Joseph Stotdremyer,
association president, in his
request to City Manager
Marty Black. "As there is no
functional use for the struc-
ture, the only remaining pur-
pose is historical value."
Black sent Stottlemyer to
Venice Historical
Commission, which denied
the request Friday morning..
Commission members ruled
that Eagle Point should honor
the 1991 deal requiring them
to preserve and rehabilitate
the club house, guest house,

The association has
already been allowed to 'alter
the agreement once, in 1997,
and reduced the number of

five to only two. Private

of these historic cottages
once were.
The final decision on the

rests with city council mem-
bers.
"That is just a recommen-
dation (bv %Venice Historical


Commission)," Black said.
"Ultimately, city council will
make the final decision on
modifying the preannexation
agreement and its terms."
Messages seeking com-
ment were left with the asso-

president for Eagle Point
Club.


What it was
Eagle Point Club was built
in 1916 and advertised as an
outdoorsman's oasis next to
Roberts Bay and started
pulling Northerners to the
area years before the city was
created in 1927. Today, the
community just on on the
northern side of Hatchett

left up.

I recently had the opportunity to
pose questions about the Sarasota
Memorial Hospital Laurel Road
Project to Gwen MacKenzie, the new
chief executive officer and. president
of the hospital, and Michael
Harrington, the CEO for ambulatory
development.
MacKenzie, 50, was chief operating
officer of the Detroit Medical Center
before moving to Sarasota-with sales-
man husband Larry. Known for her
ability to turn around money-losing
hospitals, ,only a few weeks into her
new job she announced the elimina-
tion of 90 positions, beginning her
philosophy for an overhaul of services
for a financial turnaround in Sarasota.
SHarrington, a Floridian who grew
up along the Suwannee River, is the
former CEO of Bon Secours Health
Care System in Charlotte County.

Motorcycle helmet law a no-brainer


Riders want the freedom to choose whether to
wear headgear, while safety advocates argue the
cost to society is too great to make it optional.


BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER

Pro-choice. Pro-life.
Few topics trigger the
innate American passion for
choosing sides faster than
those that touch on personal
liberty.
And few battles have been
marked by the spirited dis-
course attending the debate
over Florida's motorcycle hel-
met law.
For both sides, the matter
is literally one of life and
death.
SQn July 1, 2000, the law
requiring all Florida motorcy-
clists to wear helmets was
repealed, and replaced by a
new statute allowing riders 21
and over to go helmetless as
long as they carry at least
$10,000 in medical insurance.
SThe repeal was the culmi-
nation of a pitched political
and philosophical battle that
had raged for more than two
decades. The long campaign
included highly organized,
highly visible annual"runs" to
Tallahassee, with thousands
of bikers from throughout the
state converging on the Capi-
tol, surrounding the complex
with their parked machines,
and fanning out through the
halls of power in their denim
and leather to press their case
with lawmakers.
For those who live to ride
and ride to live, the victory
was a stunning one that
reverberated through motor-
cycle circles and statehouses
across the nation, accelerat-
ing a trend that has seen state
after state loosen or abolish
its helmet-wearing require-
ments leaving just 20 states
still requiring helmets on
every rider's head.
But today a counteroffen-
sive may be on the horizon.
Threatening to reignite the
skirmish is the shnultaneous
release of two studies earlier
this month, one by the.feder-.
al government's National
Highway Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration and the other by
the private Insurance Insti-
tute for Highway Safety.
The sponsors of both stud-
ies say their data suggest the
loosening of Florida's helmet
requirements was the green
light for a costly bloodbath on
the state's highways.
But most riders, as well as
motorcyclist advocacy
groups and even some scien-
tists, dismiss the figures as
biased or self-serving at best,
and intentionally misleading
at worst.
The numbers
The federal study states
that in the three years after
Florida approved helmetless
riding, motorcycle deaths
across the state went up 81
percent overall; deaths of rid-
ers under 21 almost tripled;
and the cost of fixing the aver-
age motorcycle-related head
injury mushroomed to more
than four times the required
$10,000 coverage unhelmeted
riders must carry.
According to the insurance
industry study, which com-
pared the two years after the
new helmet legislation took
effect with the. two years
before, the motorcycle death
rate jumped from 30.8 deaths
to 38.8 deaths per .1,000
crashes.
The Florida Highway
Patrol, which advocates the
use of all available safety
devices including helmets
by motorists of all types of
vehicles, said the death rate
more than doubled in some
Florida counties over the
same timeframe.
To state Rep. Irving
Slosberg, D.-Boca Raton, the
Florida Legislature's self-
described "Crusader of
Highway Safety". who was
elected to office the year after
Gov. Jeb Bush signed the hel-


met-optional legislation into
law, the studies' results are a
compelling argument for
change.
"You didn't need a study to
tell you what the outcome
would be," he said. "It's com-


mon sense that a person
would be more susceptible to
catastrophic head injuries
without a helmet than some-
body who wears one. Aside
from the tragic emotional
cost paid by their loved ones,
who pays the cost when the
paraplegics and quadripleg-
ics resulting from these crash-
es wind-up on Medicaid? We
all do. The question to be
decided now is, do we need it
to be the law?"
The advocate
Slosberg, a former Chicago
cab driver responsible for
Florida traffic statutes such as
primary enforcement of seat-
belt use by minors, mandato-
ry signaling when changing
lanes and tighter restrictions
on the volume of car stereos,
said he has been inundated
with calls from safety advo-
cates, colleagues and media
inquiring if he will lead an
assault on voluntary helmet
use.
"I'm considering it," said
the South Florida Democrat,
who is running for an open
Senate seat in his district. "I'm
taking the temperature of my
constituents and colleagues,
and you can be sure I'll be
talking to the leadership in
Tallahassee about it very
soon. If the time is right and
the wind in Tallahassee is
blowing that way, then yes, I'll
be leading it."
Slosberg hinted, however,
that his approach t6 a final
solution may be more tem-
pered than a full-scale repeal
of the repeal.
"Maybe what we need to
do is raise the age from 21 to
25," he said. "I'm open to
adjustments. Change takes
time in Tallahassee. Just ask
the people who changed the
law in the first place."
The opposition
For their part, however, the
members of American Bikers
Aimed Toward Education -
the national biker advocacy
group and driving force
behind the repeal of the
Florida helmet law and others
across, the country said
they see any attempt at re-
tightening restrictions on hel-
met use as an unwelcome
intrusion they will mobilize to
defend against.
"Those studies are a joke,"
said Dale Smith, spokesman
for the Peace River chapter of
ABATE. "Motorcycle licenses
in Florida have increased by
more than 200,000 since the
law was passed. That's a lot
bigger increase in people on
motorcycles than the figures
in those studies, but they
don't bother to mention that.
There's just a lot more people
out there riding."
A lot more motorcycles,


of 13 mph where the helmet
doesn't split open, the force it
absorbs simply transfers the
energy of impact from the
human head to the neck, eas-
ily breaking it.
'This is America'
Some rider advocates
point to statistics suggesting
that head injuries comprise
only 20 percent of routine
motorcycle-riding injuries,
but account for 80 percent of
passengers in automobile
accidents and suggest that
helmets for automobile pas-
sengers and drivers might
make more sense.
Others point' t the well-


- to both sides


documented fact that rider-
ship drops sharply in states
that institute mandatory hel-
met laws, and charge that the
insurance industry's active
support for mandatory hel-
met use in the name of lower
medical costs is disingenuous
since more than 70 percent of
motorcycle-automobile colli-
sions usually are found to be
the fault of the car driver -
and jury awards in such cases
can be enormous.
Still others criticize the
recent studies for calculating
Florida's fatality rates against
the total state population
rather than its motorcycle-
riding population, a method
they say unfairly skews com-
parisons to mandatory-hel-
met states located mainly in
the north, where ridership is
comparatively low due to
their large urban populations.
'And when was the last time
you saw a motorcycle run a car
off the road, or run into one and
cause major damage?" Lewis
asked rhetorically. "That doesn't
happen."
To Anita Pimentel, who
rides a 2003 Anniversary
Edition Harley Sportster, it's
hard to know who is the
greater danger to her- a soc-
cer mom behind the wheel of
a speeding minivan yelling at
the kids in the backseat veer-
ing sharply toward her han-
dlebars, or nonriders who
believe they know how best to
increase her chances for sur-
vival out on the road.
"I think what should be
mandatory is motorcycle
awareness in all driver educa-
tion classes," she said. "We're
not hurting anybody, and
we're the ones getting killed
out there. If I'm going over 30.
mph and some drunk sud-
denly pulls out in front me, a
hunk of plastic on my head
isn't going to save my life.
"Riding is about freedom,
and this is America. It's my
life. It should be my choice.".

too. According to state fig-
ures, motorcycle registrations
have more than doubled
since the law was enacted.
"If they try to use those
study numbers against us,"
said Smith, "we'll be up there
to fight it. Count on it."
Smith pointed to ABATE's
official position on the issue
- "We're not anti-helmet,
we're anti-helmet law. It
should be a choice" and
emphasized that the group's
focus of education and
awareness has resonated with
state leaders, resulting in a
$500,000 budget allocation
for a' public education cam-
paign directed by the group.
"It's about how people
drive, not what they wear," he
said.
The choice
PhilLewis, 51, a sales rep-
resentative at an area Harley-
Davidson dealership who
moved to Florida from
Massachusetts three months
ago, said the-right to ride hel-
metlessly is one of the great-
est pleasures of his new
home.
"On the highway I wear a-
helmet," he said. "But on
short hops and around town I
don't. I like being able to feel
the wind on my face and in
my hair. It's all about freedom
when you're out riding. When
people who don't ride start
telling people who do what's
safe and what isn't, there's
something wrong there. I

Landlord/tenant dispute flares up again

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

For all practical purposes,
the landlord/tenant dispute
involving the Venice Island
Pab is dead it just doesn't
have enough sense to lie
down.
"The landlords are up to
their old tricks again," said
Robert Harrison, VIP's attor-
ney. "This is just another
attempt to force Tony out
(VIP owner Tony Tundo)."
TheVIP is a popularVenice
lounge located at 100 W.
Venice Ave.
The latest.episode involves
a violation notice issued to
The Venice Company, Tundo's
landlord, by the Venice
Building and Code
Enforcement Department.


The violation allegedly hap-
pened at the VIE
The notice is datedAug. 24,
and states that "Patrons and
furniture (were) observed on
the balcony."
In order to comply, the
notice states, VIP must "ensure
that no patrons or furniture are
on the balcony, and said bal-
cony shall be utilized strictlyfor
pedestrian ingress and egress."
The letter states that the city
Code Enforcement Board has
the powerto impose afine ofup
to $250 per day for each day of
the violation for a first time
offender. The fine is up to $500
per day for a repeat offender.
The letter is over the signa-
ture of John J. Patek, Code
Enforcement Inspector.
"I have no knowledge of
the letter," TVC attorney Jon


him.
'Not a violation'
Harrison also had not
received the letter but the
reporter read it to him over
the telephone a day earlier.
Harrison said the claim that
owner Tony Tundo has furni-
ture and patrons on the sec-
ond story balcony is non-
sense.
"He is not serving out
there, there is no furniture,
they (TVC) won't let him put
anything out there," Harrison
said. "Of course patrons can
be seen on thebalcony, but
that is not a violation. If he
was serving them out there,
that might be different, but he
is not."
TVC has been trying to
oust Tundo for two. years. It


claimed Tundo did not have a
lease and took Tundo to
court.
Sarasota County Judge
Emanuel LoGalbo Jr. decided
late last year that TVC failed to
show that it did not have a
lease agreement with Tundo.
"In order to get the attor-
ney fees," Harrison said
recently, "there had to be a
contractual relationship
between the parties."
TVC stopped accepting
rent checks more than a year
ago..
Harrison said TVC keeps
shooting itself in the foot
because it is the ones getting
the violations. '
"They won't fix the elevator
either, so people have to use
the stairs," Harrison said.
"People using wheelchairs
cannot go to the lounge and
have a drink."

CORRESPONDENT

The July purchase of 11
acres of waterfront land on
Blackburn Point Road by
Sarasota county for a public
boat ramp has allayed some
fears in the community of the
erosion of public access. But
the Osprey Revitalization
Committee remains con-
cerned about its lack of con-
trol of zoning that could close
-off even more of Osprey's
diminishing waterfront.
Mary Beth Humphreys, the
county zoning administrator,
has been invited to address
the issue at the committee's
Monday afternoon meeting.
She is expected to explain
steps the community can
take in dealing with future
waterfront development.
A proposed rezoning to
allow development of a 5.5-
acre tract bordering Bay
Street on the north, U.S. 41 on
the east and Bayyiew Avenue
on the south could lead to the
close of the popular Spanish
Pointe Marina Grille on
Bayview. It is one of the coun-
ty's few remaining waterfront
restaurants.
Originally brought before
the committee last January,
the proposal calls for 55 con-
dominiums at the waterfront
end of the,site and 11 two-
story retail units with apart-
ments on the second floor
along U.S. 41. The retail units
would be about 1,500 square
feet. Clusters of condomini-
um buildings would be
spaced from along the water's
edge to the center of the
property.
"If this proposal is ap-
proved, it could force the
closing of Bayview," Jay Le-
land, vice-chairman of the
committee, said at the time.
"That's the only way to get to
the restaurant and the water,
by land. The restaurant's
parking space would be elim-,
inated by the development,
and that would kill the restau-
rant."
Nothing new
Waterfront development has
worried the committee for sev-


eral years. Introduction of the
mixed-use proposal in January
visibly upset committee mem-
bers. Cotinty staff members
have been working with them
since waterfront revitalization
regulations were spelled out
under the overall community
revitalization plan.
Its approval of proposed
developments is a part of the
total review process, which
includes planning commission
and board of county commis-
sion participation. But staff
members cannot deny a peti-
tion to rezone. By familiarizing
themselves with all aspects of
waterfront revitalization-den-
sity requirements, access to the
water, the impact of seawalls -
they .hope they can persuade
developers to, meet the desires
of the Osprey community
"We were once a fishing vil-
lage. You could fish from a pier
oraboatramp onLittleSarasota
Bay. Or you could wade into the
water, or go further byrowboat,"
Leland recalled. "Osprey resi-
dents need to find ways to
restore that kind of access to the
water," he added.
The original Osprey Revital-
ization Plan, which evolved in
the 1990s, envisioned public
viewing and access to the bay It
aimed at creating a mix of
waterfront restaurants, shops,
hotels, clustered homes and
condominiums, offices and
recreation areas.
Part of the original plan
called for about 14 acres of land
west of U.S. 41 and north of the
Hidden Bay- condominium
community to Webb Street to
encompass such a mix Public
access to the bay was deter-
mined to be essential. But the
proposed-rezoning of the 5.5-
acre site represents less than
half of the total area. A master
plan to revitalize all 14 acres was
considered necessary by the
planners.
"Can we help to set stan-
dards'for revitalizing the
waterfront that serve the
needs of Osprey?" asked com-
mninee member David MIitch-
ell. "The answer may lie in
what Ms. Humphreys can tell
us on the 29th. I hope there is
a way to satisfy prospective
developers and residents.

Stonewall Democrats



form Suncoast chapter


Opening soon


CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


The Suncoast Stonewall
Democrats had their first
meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 9.
"We want to. establish a
voting block," Bryan Worth-
ington, president of the
group, said.
The Suncoast Stonewalls
are a grassroots organization
that is affiliated with the
Florida Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual
and Transgender Democratic
Caucus and the National
Stonewall Democrats:
The group's roots go back
not too long ago, when it was
illegal for gay Americans to
congregate. 'In New York it
was even illegal to serve alco-
hol to known homosexuals.
These laws made The
Stonewall Inn and Bar in.
Greenwich Village an easy
target for police, since it was
well known as gathering
place for homosexuals.
Routine raids of the bar
were often' conducted by
police. For some time the gay
community sat by and let this
happen. One night- June 27,
1.969 they got tired of being
pushed around.
When police came into the
bar for their second routine
raid of the week, people
fought back. General protests
turned into an uncontrollable
riot.
Shortly after this event a
small group of NewYork's gay


community organized with
the goal to protect the rights
of gay men and women and
eliminate anti-gay laws.
Reaching more people
The initial purpose of
forming the Suncoast
Stonewall Democrats was to
educate the Suncoast GLBT
community on the differ-
ences that exist in the politi-
cal parties. Other focuses are
mobilizing the community to
get out and vote and to stand
up for their rights when they
are attacked.
When the first meeting
began and members spoke
their piece, new goals were
added to the list.
Only 16 members attend-
ed the organizational meet-
ing. This disappointing
turnout led to a discussion of
how to draw out the GLBT
community and pull them
together for a common cause.
Members were certain that
there were more than 16
homosexual Democratic
individuals in the area. With
Republicans being the major-
ity in Sarasota County, how-
ever, it was not much of a sur-
prise that people might be
afraid to make their homo-
sexuality or Democratic party
preference known.
Among the small group of
attendees was Mike LeFevers,
an "otit" gay male who is liv-
ing with HIV He is also run-
ning for the U.S. House of


Representatives, District 13,
for 2006. He believes that a
key focus of this group should
be to eliminate the idea that
homosexuals are different
from anyone else.
"We settle for tolerance,
not, acceptance," LeFevers
said. "We are just like every-
one else ... the gayissue is not
going to be an issue for my
campaign; it's a people issue."
Members said they are
tired of gay stereotypes. They
agreed that "gay" does not
describe who they are, just
their sexual preference.
One couple told the group
that they were sick of people
asking which one of them was
the wife. The rest of the mem-
bership nodded their heads
in agreement. Most of them
had experienced the same
thing.
The organization will do
whatever it can to crush
stereotypical ideas about
homosexuals.
Another message that the
organization decided needed
to be stressed was that the
membership was not limited
strictly to homosexuals. The
organization is open to any
registered Democrat in.
Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte,
Desoto or Hardee County
who is on board with the mis-
sion of the group.
Judgment from
the Republican side
The Suncoast Stonewalls


may expect some criticism
from the Republican side.
Bob Waechter, head of the
Republican Party of Sarasota,
seems to think that this new
group is unnecessary.
"My first take would ,be
that this is another try by the
Democrats at reinventing
themselves as they see their
party becoming increasingly
inconsequential," Waechter
said in an e-mail interview.
Although the assumption


may be that all homosexuals
are Democrats, this is not the
case. In fact, there is a
Republican gay rights organi-
zation as well, The Log Cabin
Republicans.
This group has the same
type of goals and visions as
the Suncoast Stonewalls.
Apparently the Log Cabin
group is not extremely well
known, as Bob Waechter was
not aware of its existence.
"As to your question if the


Republican Party had any
sort of similar group, we
don't need one," Waechter
said in an e-mail interview.
-"Our core values and our
party platforms reflect the
beliefs and goals of our base.
We don't need to reinvent
ourselves."

FP&L is always complicated."
30-percent solution
So far, what the county has
brought to the partnership is an
engineering consul tant,Wilson-
Miller, that is producing a "30-
percent-completed" design for
the entire village plan, and pub-
lic works officials who are work-
ingwithFP&L on hard numbers
to bury the power lines.
"The plan will include dec-
orative features, preliminary
roadway realignments,
drainage and landscaping,"
said Jeff Roberts, a county
engineer. "The FP&L element
is not part of the 30-percent
design, but it is following a
parallel course."


If the village property own-
ers agree to a special taxing
District known as a public
improvement district, and
the county commission
approves the overall concept,
an t ellsion'of the X'Vlson-
" Mille contract will probably
Sbe negotiated to produce the
remaining 70 percent of the
plan.'
"The reason for having a
public hearing in December
is to begin collecting money
for the public improvement
district in the next calendar
year," Robert said. "If we wait
until January, then it won't be
possible to start collecting
money until the following
year."


Timetable
A construction timetable
for ground-breaking could
come either after the winter
tourist season of 2007 or 2008.
If it includes burying the
FP&L lines along a 3.000-foot
stretch of Ocean Boulevard,
the price tag could jump from
about $3 million to almost $4
million, and possibly more.
Although there has been
no formal vote, county com-
missioners have tentatively
agreed to split a $3 million bill
with village property owners
that does not include burying
power lines. Whether they
will extend their 50-50 cost
sharing pledge to the power
lines remains to be seen.

offices, walk-in urgent care,
diagnostic, radiology labora-
tory and an outpatient
surgery center. The health-
care system has been moving
toward ambulatory for years,
while retaining major hospi-
tal inpatient services. As tech-
nology advances, there are
opportunities to provide
more services on an outpa-
tient basis, and this is what
patients want.
We have seen it in almost
every clinical area surgery,
gastro-intestinal and all diag-
nostic services which peo-
ple prefer to have done in
community-based settings.
That's not new to hospitals.
What' is new is being able to
develop into an organized
network partnering with
some really great physicians
in an effective way in a very
large geographical area.
Q. Do you have a start date?
A. It is estimated initial
planning will be completed
by the end of thisyear, per-
mitting in place. A ground-
breaking will take place
between March and May next
year, according to
Harrington.
Q. What will this project cost?
A. The terms of the actual
cost are not available, the rea-
son being there will be part-
nerships utilizing joint ven-
tures with physicians. In fact,
the programming will drive
the cost decision. Physicians

will partner with the develop-
er, owning part of the build-
ing. We may have a part of it
as well, but not if it is strictly a
medical building for physi-
cians. We are creating a differ-
ent kind of economical align-
ment for the future.
Q. This location is close to I-
75. Will it meet a need for emer-
gency services?
A. It will not be a hospital,
but an ambulatory campus.
Ambulances are required to
take people to the nearest
hospital, which is Venice
Regional Medical Center. We
might consider an urgent-
care center, but not where
ambulances, visit or with
inpatient room activity. It's
not what we are talking about
on this campus.
Physicians are busy and at
capacity having to turn new
people away. At our
Blackburn Point property, the
primary-care physicians and
laboratory services are at
capacity. That is one of the
reasons we need to expand
into Venice and Sarasota
County. We believe there is a
shortage of primary-care
physicians. There are' very
long lead times. Other offices
around town have the same
theory.
Q. How will this relate to
Sarasota Memorial Hospital?
A. Mr. Harrington is devel-
oping an ambulatory plan.

tory testing or primary care in

Parkway, it needs to be near-
by. It is important to place
facilities where primary care
is only 15 minutes or less than
30 minutes to travel to an
appointment with a physi-
cian. With ambulatory ser-
vices, there is no city limit.
There is, at this time and will
continue in the future to be
,significant growth. Look at
the population changes in
South County We are going to
where people live to provide
them with services.
Q. Will you provide the unin-
sured with more services?
A. We are committed to
doing that and where we will,
do that is in obstetrics, psy-
chiatry and pediatrics. On
campus, we don't know yet.
Q. Will you provide psychi-
atric and obstetric services in
Venice?
A. It's just the beginning
and we are programming our
plan, but certainly primary
care will be located there.
Q. It has been said SMH has
not marketed its services.
A.Yes, we do see marketing
changing. We just need to let
people know of the very high
quality of services provided
locally, and there isn't a need
for them to leave this area for
services. The physicians I
have found heie are of the
highest quality and standards,
I have encountered during
my career.
Q. Is this a direct challenge to
VRMC?
A. We are adding physi-


cians, not competition.
-Q. New extensions eat up and
fragment costs, escalating over-
head. Is this just duplication of
services?
A. We believe this campus
will pay for itself, providing
needed outpatient services
and making, it unnecessary
for people to come to SMH
andVRMC. Developer capital
will assist in joint ventures,
and physicians will want their
own spaces, not only to rent,
but to buy.
Q. A new fire station is being
built nearby. Will this be an
advantage?
A. Major incidents and
accidents will be served by
the fire station and ambu-
lances, which cannot stop at
an outpatient facility, but are
required to go to the closest
hospital, likely VRMC. On our
campus there will be no inpa-

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 bu Iding
inspector lags these issues for you, you \\ll
almost certainly experience costly delays in the
close of your home sale or, worse, turn
prospective buyers away altogether.

While Florida's unemploy-
ment rate dipped to 3.8 per-
cent in July-the lowest since
November 2000 county fig-
ures were mixed, according to
figures released last week by
the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation.
In Charlotte County, .the
jobless rate was also 3.8 per-
cent, down four-tenths of a
percent from June and'nine-
tenths of a percent from July
2004.
DeSoto County's unem-
ployment rate, on the other
hand, jumped to 5.2 percent in
July, an increase of six-tenths
of percent from the June rate.
Still, the July figure was well
below the 7.4 percent unem-
ployment the county was
experiencing in July of last
year.
Sarasota County had an
even lower rate than the state
last month, with 3.2 percent
unemployment. The county
had 3.5 percent employment
in June and 4.1 percent in July
2004.
Of the three counties,
Charlotte was the only one to
show growth in the labor mar-
ket from June to July. Charlotte's
labor force totaled 62.748
workers in July, the Agency for
Workforce Innovation report-
ed, an increase of 2,377 over
last month.
DeSoto County, mean-
while, lost more than 1,000
workers over the two-month
period. The total number of
available workers in the
county dropped from 14,089
in June to 12,910 in July.
Sarasota County lost only
307 workers from its labor
force, which totaled 170,611
workers in July.


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.

issue-before their home is listed, a free

Among available workers
in the three counties in July,
2,377 were out of work in
Charlotte, 675 were unem-
ployed in DeSoto, and 5,386
were jobless in Sarasota.
Hurricane boom
Susan Pareigis, director of
the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation, said
Florida led the top 10 states in
the country in the rate of
employment growth in July.
The state's unemployment
rate was 1.2 percent lower
than the national average of 5
percent, she said..
Economists have credited
the post-hurricane construc-
tion boom fueled by a
robust housing market and
the rebuilding of storm-rav-
aged areas with Florida's
healthy employment figures.
The rest of the state
The rural south-central
Florida counties of Hendry,
Hardee and Okeechobee had
the state's highest unemploy-
ment rates in July. Hendry's
was just under 11 percent,
while Hardee's rate was 6.7 per-
cent and Okeechobee's 6.3 per-
cent, the agency said.
Out of a civilian labor force
of 8.7 million, there. were
334,000 unemployed Flori-
dians in July, the lowest num-
ber since March 2001.
Seasonally adjusted nonfarm
employment grew by 242,700
jobs overthe year, a 3.2-percent
growth rate that is nearly twice
the national rateof 1.7 percent.
Florida officials! can also
boast that the state had the
fastest rate of annual job
growth among the 10 most
populous states based on June
data, the most recent period
for which data from all states is
available.

HISTORY from page 1A

taking away what used to be
Eagle Point's southern shore-
line in Roberts Bay.
Hunters could go bird
hunting on 16,000 acres of
land to the south now
known as Taylor Ranch -
and then hire a local fishing
guide to venture into the Gulf
of Mexico. Some native
Venice residents remember
the rumors of how the resort's
owners rigged the hunts,
releasing caged birds as
guests approached so that
hunters always hit their limit.
This was a time when most
of the area was poor, and the
resort provided much-need-
ed income to local businesses
and residents during the
Great Depression and other
hard times. The original
Tamiami Trail --then only
two lanes and a dirt road -
also ran right through the
camp..
SPrivate developers shut
down the 23-acre resort in
1990 and have been building
high-priced homes ever
since.
When the resort's doors
closed, Eagle Point Club was
the oldest, longest-running
business in Sarasota County
history and named to the
national listing of historic
places.
f Historical commission
members agreed blame for
letting the landmarks rot
should be aimed at the pri-
vate developer and home-
pwners association.

this," commissioner Carolyn
Shrauger said. "We have an
agreement in place, and they
are to maintain this."

power to "collect assessments
for these purposes and to.

ing to the agreement.
It is unclear how much has

preservation and how much

AFSCME from page lA

city worker about 140 of
them who is not a firefight-
er, police officer or part of
management. Much like the
police department contract,
the AFSCME contract expired
last October.
The negotiating teams will
meet again Wednesday to
finalize language resolving a
retroactive contract for the
past year, and a three-year
contract to begin Oct. 1, 2005,
according to a joint press
release issued by the city and
union.
If the deal is approved,' all
salary steps for the 2004-2005
fiscal-year will be increased by
4 percent and be paid retroac-
tively. Salary step amounts
will then be increased by 4.5
percent as of Oct. 1, 2005, by
4.0 percent in October 2006,
and 3.5 percent in October
2007.
Health insurance premi-
um amounts something
AFSCME workers have never
had to pay for before also
will be locked in until the con-
tract expires in 2008.
State AFSCME regional
director Mike Temple came
up with the idea of agreeing


to two contracts at the same
time. Florida laws limit union
contracts with government
agencies to just three years, so
Temple suggested an agree-
ment to cover the expired
contract year of 2004-2005
and a second contract for
three more years starting this
October.
Union members benefit by
getting health insurance rates
locked into place through
2008, and the city benefits by
not worrying about negotia-
tions for at least three full
years. After reviewing the
legal implications, City
Attorney Bob Anderson
approved the idea.
The premiums for individ-
ual health insurance would
be free during 2004-2005 to
any worker making less than
$38,000 a year and $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 abase salaryof less
than $30,000; monthly fees of
$20 for $30,000-$40,850; and
$40 a month for more than
$40,850.
a 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; ard $40 a
month for more than $44,000.
Once the details are final-
ized, the contracts will be pre-
sented to the local AFSCME
union for ratification, .proba-
bly in early September. They
will then be presented to the
city council for approval later
in the month.
The negotiating teams also
reached agreement regarding
public employee relations
commission unit clarifica-
tion. This determines which
city workers can be in the
union and which workers
cannot. Ajoint agreement will
be finalized and submitted to
the commission early next
month.
Local AFSCME president
Ralph Hamann, Temple, and
union representatives Tim
Merritt and Dennis Rodriguez
negotiated on behalf of
employees. The city negotiat-
ing team was, led by
Adminiistrative Services
Director Brenda Digges and
City Attorney Bob Anderson.

tient or emergency room
facilities.
Q. Both Bon Secours and
SMH lost millions of dollars last
year. How can you change this?
A. This will be an ambula-
tory campus. We will provide
underinsured and uninsured
patients ambulatory services,
which typically do not lose
money as there are higher
margins in these services.
Hospital-based services typi-
cally see issues of losses.
Q. Will you be competing
directly with VRMC?
A. I think we will be anoth-
er independent contractor,
and this is not necessarily
bad, as it gives people choices.


Today there is other competi-
tion for outpatient services,
especially in the small little
niche services of home health,
respiratory care and such like,
which go on all the time.
Q. Venice's population is
19,000. Can it sustain two hospi-
tals?
A. Arbitrarily, there is no
actual city limit. The popula-
tion may be twice the -city
limit, even three times. In
addition, there will be signifi-
cant growth. Look at the pop-
ulation change in South
County: 13-14 percent popu-
lation growth. There is a lead
time at growth and we are
looking at the need to face


this increasing demand for
medical facilities. It has been
ascertained that people
should have no more than a
15-20 minute drive.
Q. Will there be any. more
SMH campuses?
A. The whole strategy of the
anibulatory network is to
have the hospital as the hub
where we do most activity.
Venice will be another major
hub. We have Blackburn Point
in Osprey, which we will con-
tinue to develop. There is land
at Thomas Ranch in South
Venice for another campus,
which will grow as the com-
munity expands, added
Harrington.

Indians see what it takes in Lakeland


SUN PHOTOS BY CLAUDE LEWIS

Dreadnaughts, ranked No. 1 in the nation by USA
Today, capitalize on Venice mistakes in season
opener.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


On the 'scale of valiant
efforts, Venice High rated an
Category 3 bordering an
Category, 4 Friday night at
Bryant Stadium in Lakeland.
The only problem was, it
would have taken an Cate-
gory 5 to destroy the mighty
Dreadnaughts, ranked No. 1
in the country by USA Today.
Lakeland capitalized on
Indian mistakes and in the
end secured a 35-7 non-dis-
trict verdict in a season open-
er for both teams.
The Dreadnaughts only
led 6-0 at the half and 21-7
after three quarters, but put
Venice away with a couple of
fourth quarter strikes.
Indian coach Nick Cole-
man could be proud of the
way his team hung in and
fought against a nationally
ranked opponent.
"We battled extremely
hard for three quarters," said
Coleman, who defeated Lake-
land in 2000 on the way to a
state title. "Our defense was
on the field too much. Our
offense put them in a hole."
Venice could only ring up
132 total yards against the
dreaded Dreadnaught de-
fense.
I The ground-attack orient-
ed Indians averaged less than
two yards a carry, as Lake-
land's line play and second
wave of defense was hard to
penetrate.
"They have stellar line-
backers," said Coleman,
pointing to the likes of middle
Rashad Coleman and Troy
Johnson. "They're all so fast."
Venice running back Tony
Charles will attest to that. He
picked up 44 tough-as-nails
yards against the Lakeland


wolfpack.
"They have a lot of depth,"
said the 6-2, 225-pound bull.
"They can sub people out
with the same attitude as the
ones they replaced. We don't
have that depth."
The Venice defense engi-
neered by coach John Pea-
cock did an admirable job
keeping the Dreadnaught
attack in check. All state run-
ning back Chris Rainey, the
brother of pro Rod "He Hate
Me" Smart, was bottled up for
only 18 yards on seven car-
ries. Although fullback Jamar
Taylor rang up 128 yards on
13 carries, 67 of them came
on a third quarter run when
the Indian "D" had a rare
lapse.
Take away the 67-yard TD
run by Taylor and a late 30-
yard TD run by second
stringer Preston Chapmon,
and the running stats were
pretty even. '
The game boiled down to a
couple of defining moments
for Venice.
One came late in the sec-
ond quarter. Venice had
sucked the momentum from
the breadnaughts and put
together a solid drive. The
Indians took over at midfield
following a poor punt. On the
first play. Charles ripped off
an 18-yard gain to the 32.
Charles galloped to the 19 on
a screen pass from quarter-
back Matt Wickwire.'
An eight-yard gain by
Charles gave the Indians a
first down at the 9-yard line. A
flip by Wickwire to back Paul
Costanzo put the ball at the 5.
With the clock kicking
down the final seconds of the
half, Venice decided to try a
23-yard field goal. Ben
Shipps' boot iwas true, but a
late Whistle determined that


Venice defensive end Mike Atamanchuk (95) leaps in an
attempt to bat a pass by Lakeland quarterback Bill Lowe.
-- in -IL - -


Venice captains Tony Charles and Brad Ackles participate in
the pregame coin toss. Lakeland was represented by Matt
Grier (1) and Troy Johnson (26).


The Indians were in a hostile
environment Friday night, as
evidenced by this fanatical
Dreadnaught fan.

the Dreadnaughts had called
time out before the kick.
Venice and Shipps came
up empty on the second try,
as Johnson broke through for
a block.
A field goal would have cut
the Lakeland lead to 6-3. ATD
would have been even better.
"Before halftime, we
should have scored," Charles
said. "We have to finish the
job."
Venice came out pumped
up for the second half. They
had reason to be, ,as the
Indians only trailed 6-0 and
they were receiving the sec-
ond half kickoff.
Hopes were deflated early
as a fumble on the center-
quarterback exchange on a
third and one call gave
Lakeland the ball at the 20.
Five plays later, Taylor went in
from a yard out. The
Dreadnaughts ran in the con-
Sversion, and it was' a 14-0
game.
The Venice offense went
nowhere on its next posses-
sion, and Lakeland got the
ball back on its own 33 follow-
ing a fine 38-yard punt
Anthony Munno.
On the first play from
scrimmage, Taylor zig-zagged
through the Venice defense
for a 67-yard TD run.
"We came out flat in the
second half," said Josh
Carpenter, who played a
strong game on the defensive
line.
The Indian "O" continued
to have its problems, but the
defense gave the team a lift by
creating a turnover and com-
ing up with the only points of
the night.
Taylor carried the ball 10
yards up the left sideline, but
he lost the handle. Indian cor-
nerback Austin Dudley
scooped up the ball and went
21 yards for a touchdown.
SShipps added the conversion,
and Venice had crept to with-
in 21-7 with 5:30 remaining in
the third quarter.
"(Safety) Tony (Charles)
tripped it and it came rolling
,towards me," Dudley said. "I
picked it up and ran."
A charged-up Venice
defense held Lakeland and
forced a punt. The only prob-
lem was, nobody was back to
field it. The ball rolled all the
way to the 14-yard line.
And once again, the
Indians had poor field posi-
tion.
Poor field position hurt
Venice all night long.
"They had field position all
night," said two-way line per-
former and co-captain Brad
Ackles. "Field position killed


us. We .made to many mis-
takes."
There were a few other'
Indian blunders on special
'teams.
The first two Indian punts
went eight and 17 yards. The
first one put Lakeland in busi-
ness at the Venice 26. The
Dreadnaughts scored five
plays later when lefty quarter-
back Billy Lowe (8-for-15, 93
yards) hit his.favorite target -
Paul Wilson on a 10-yard
TD strike over the middle.'
Venice fixed its punting
woes in the second half when
Munno came on and booted
the ball well under pressure.
He punted four times for an
average of 36 yards.
The Venice "D" held
Lakeland on its first posses-
sion of the game, forcing the
Dreadnaughts to punt. For
some reason, Charles decid-
ed not to fair catch at the 30.
The poor field position pat-
tern started there as the
Indians began their game-
opening drive saddled at their
11.
Lakeland, the defending
Class 5A champ, added two
insurance touchdowns late in
the fourth quarter.
Lowe capped a nine-play,
90-yard drive with a five-yard
TD run on a QB bootleg.
\ An interception set up the
Dreadnaughts' final strike.
Chatmon danced 30 yards
and Matt Roddenberry's con-
version made it 35-7.
The .Indians kept their
heads up and kept popping
until the end.
"We hit them," Ackles said.'
"That's Venice football."
Venice hopes to takes its
lessons from Lakeland and,
get better for this coming
Friday's home opener against


Venice defenders Spencer Laps (56), Mike Atamanchuk (95)
and Josh Carpenter (55) bottle up Lakeland runner Chris
Rainey.


Venice fans made the trip to Lakeland in good numbers in sup-
port of their Indians.


NEXT WEEK'S OPPONENT


Riverview shades
Booker 9-6
Venice High varsity foot-
ball will play its home open-
er this coming Friday night
against Riverview.
Riverview is off to a 1-0
start after defeated host
Booker 9-6 in a defensive
struggle Thursday night.
Riverview trailed 6-0 at
the half but scored two
points on a third quarter
safety and got the game win-
ning touchdown in the
fourth quarter on a 13-yard
pass by Carlos Lowe.
The Riverview defense
was tough, holding Booker


to just 27 yards rushing.
Riverview is coming off an
impressive 2004 season
where it upset Naples in the
first round of the playoffs and
made it to the state semifi-
nals. Riverview defeated
Venice last year 28-14.

Proper attire? How about playing in your underwear


I'll admit it. I'm no fashion
plate. I am possibly the worst-
dressed golfer in Sarasota
County, maybe all of south-
west Florida. I believe in
being comfortable first and
everything else second. I love
big baggy shirts and finding
shorts is no easy task either.
You see, I am misshapen.
Unfortunately my parents
were poorly matched geneti-
cally. And in most other ways
too. I have a barrel chest and
midget legs. I wear a size
medium shorts and a 2X shirt.
If I tuck my shirt in, I look like
an orange on two sticks.


But enough about my
,imperfections. Golf courses
have rules about what you
can wear, but not always what
you can't.'Once upon a time
there was a game at Venice
Golf and Country Club. We're
going back about 13 years
here. VGCC was just open and
they let the riff raff play their
course.
There was a fellow named
Rich DelPizzo. Some may
have known him or remem-
ber him. Rich died in about
1994 from cancer. He was, a
nice guy. Well, one day he
showed up for the game in -


gasp denim shorts. After
being informed about the
clubs strict clothing require-
ments, he had to buy a pair of
shorts from the pro shop, $45
as I recall. -
The very next week I had
inadvertently forgot to bring a
nice pair of shorts to play in. I
had been working all morn-
ing and I was a mess. I knew
my shorts weren't gonna cut
it. Going home wasn't an
option I lived with the
plaintiff back then. After sift-
ing through my choices and
deciding that I wasn't going to
pay $45 for a pair of shorts, I


went to the local Beall's
Outlet. I surfed the racks and
found nothing. Just as I was
going to leave I saw a pair of
plaid shorts. Now I'm not
really a plaid kind of guy, but I
decided what the heck and
bought them for $2.
Little did I know at the time
that they were boxer shorts.
By the time I realized my
problem, it was too late. It
was game time. I figured why
not? I'd seen guys wear things
that were twice as ugly as
those boxers. I just hoped for
the best and went ahead. Well
somewhere around the 14th


hole, one of my playing part-
ners noticed. I just laughed
and asked if he was checking
me out. I wasn't going to say a
word until then.
After the round as we all
sat in the Eagles Nest, I made
it a point to go find Richie. I
told him that I thought it was
remarkable that VGCC
wouldn't allow him to play in
denim but they didn't care if I
played in my underwear. We
all had a good laugh and
some great memories. See ya.

Viatical fraud investigation leads to Elvis' house


Venice financial planner denies wrongdoing as
investors claim they were bilked. He says they will
all be paid, just as soon as their viatorss' die.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

"Nobody ever lost money;
it's safe."
Those words, uttered by
Venice-area financial planner
Herman "Skip" Jaehne, led
retirees Ron Gillis of North
Port and John Romanus of
Port Charlotte to invest many
thousands of dollars in "viati-
cal settlements."
No one could lose on the
investments, Jaehne argued,
because a viatical settlement
is an investment in which an
investor buys shares in the life
insurance policies of termi-
nally ill patients at a discount
that comes off the face value
of the policies.
Once the patients die, as
everyone does eventually, the
insurance company pays.off
the investor.
When their investments
failed to pay off within a year
or two as promised, Gillis and.
Romanus mounted separate
crusades to bring down the
billion-dollar corporation
that provided their viatical
investments, Mutual Benefits
Corp. of Fort Lauderdale, and
the financial planner who
sold them the investments.
Their crusade would even-
tually take them from the
halls of a Fort Lauderdale
office building, that Gillis
described as "shabby," to Elvis
PresleVs deluxe house in
Palm Springs, Calif., which
laehne had purchased for
$1.25 million the amount
of money he made selling the
viatical investments.
"It didn't surprise me," said
Romanus, of Jaehne's con-
nection to Elvis's house. "I
know from past experience,
(Jaehne) always wants to do
unusual business practices
that most good firi,,ial
planners wouldn't touch.'
A'risk-free'
investment
Viadcal investments were
established in 1989 and came
into vogue in the late 1990s.
At that time, interest rates,
were falling, and viaticals
'were seen by many as an
alternative to other interest-
bearing investments.
The term "viatical" comes
from a Latin word for giving a
traveler or a soldier money
before they set out on a long
journey
The people who sell their
life insurance policies are
known as aviators. They
receive a lump-sum payment
that represents a discount off
the full amount of their policy
based on their life expectancy.
The viatcal services
provider then becomes
responsible for paying the pre-
miums of the policy. The
provider then sells interests in
the policy to investors.
The investors get a return
that pays off after the person
dies.
Gillis and Romanus were,
among dozens of area resi-
dents who heard about the
investments from seminars
by faehne and other MBC
sales agents in 1997 and 1998.
Gillis invested $10,000 and
Romanus $25,000.
The two retirees, who did-
n't know each other at the
time. were told to expect pay-
offs with a 12-percent profit
within about a year based
on MBC's doctors' estimates
of the life expectancy of the
patients named in.their set-,
tdements.
Some seven years have
passed since then, and only
one of five patients has died,
despite life expectancies that
had been estimated as short
as six months to one year.
Gillis and Romanus
haven't seen any return on
most of their investments.
Their financial planner
maintains that the investors
will one day see a return, just
as soon as their viators die.


"There are no victims,"
Jaehne said. "Not one person
has lost any money. When I
hear the word'victim' it really
grates on me." ,


Unexpected
expectancies
About 90 percent of MBC's
viators outlive their. life
expectancies, according to a
report by. the Florida
Department of Insurance.
In May 2001, a state investi-
gation led to the arrest Dr.
Cark Mitchell, MBC's medical
expert, on 25 counts of fraud.
He was accused of misrepre-
senting material facts con-
nected with MBC's viatical
sales.
Those charges were .later
dropped, after Mitchell was
jailed on unrelated Medicare
fraud charges.
In May 2004, MBC was
seized by the federal Securities
Exchange Commission. The
SEC also claims the- company
used' fraudulent medical
reports to misrepresent the life
expectancies ofviators.
Mitchell is listed among the
SEC's witnesses set to testify
against MBC when the case
goes to trial next November.
Gillis andRomanus are also
on the SEC's wimess list.
The local investors say they
relied on Mitchell's medical
information when they decid-
ed to invest their money.
For their '$25,000, the
Romanus received shares in
the life insurance policies of
four terminally ill people. One
has died, and that policy has:
paid off.
The three other viators are
still alive.
"There's nothing wrong
with a viatical investment,"
said John Romanus. "But,
when ypu get falsified medical
.reports, that is swindling peo-
ple out of their life savings."
Crusade
begins
/,,Vt didn't tOke lng fpr Gillis
and- Romanus. t. suspect
they'd been had. Romanus,
who ran a tax-accounting ser- .
vice with his wife until he
retired aboutl0 years ago, said
he began calling MBC within a
few months after his viators
Were forecast to die.
"I was put off," lie said.
Romanus said he lodged
some of the first-official comi-
plaints and lawsuits against
Jaehne and MBC. His com-
plaints apparently helped
spark a state investigation that
resulted in a $1,000 fine and a
six-month license suspension
against Jaehne.


The sanctions came in
response to advertisements
that promised "fixed-rate"
viatical investments.
News of Romanus' com-
plaints spread to California,
where, attorney Lynn Romano
was researching Jaehne's
background. The research was
for a case in which Romano's
client, Reno Fontana, claims
Jaehne bilked him out of his
share of Elvis Presley's house.
Fontana had signed a con-
tract, to buy .the house in
September 2003 for $1.25 mil-
'lion. The house was consid-
ered underpriced, but
Fontana couldn't obtain
financing for its purchase, his
attorney said.

house with his wife, Priscilla,

tour of the house, which
includes some of Elvis's mem-
orabilia. For $1,000, a guest
could sleep in Elvis's bedroom.

Sarasota Countypaving the way to
cost-efficient road resurfacing
When. workers begin resurfacing nearly 40 lane miles of ,
county roads in early September, they will employ a new
method of "micro-surfacing" that will extend the life of these
roads by up to 10 years while allowing the county to use its
- operating dollars more efficiently.
"It will last as long as an inch of [traditional] hot mix asphalt
and it costs substantially less," says Rob Maggard, owner of
Florida Highway Products Inc. of Bartow, which was awarded
an approximately $761,000 contract to micro-surface roads in
northern and southern parts of the county.
Micro-surfacing is a modified cold mixture paving system.
It uses a product made of fine granite material and asphalt
emulsion, which is a combination of asphalt, water and an
emulsifying agent. Unlike traditional asphalt, it does not
require a petroleum solvent, and in most cases can be used
without additional heat, which results in energy savings.
Maggard maintains that it provides a texture that increases
skid resistance and resists rutting.
The process was first used in limited areas in the county in
1995, but this is the first time it will be used here on a wide
Span of roads at one time. '
The project is expected to be completed in October. It will
be funded by the infrastructure surtax (penny sales tax).

a Venice-area financial
planner accused of fraud

the SEC.
Last June, Gov. Jeb Bush
signed a bill that transferred
the state's regulation of the
viatical industry from the,
state insurance office to the
state's securities office.
Romanus, in fact, was
invited to attend the bill sign-
ing as a special guest.
S"It has been a crusade, but,
each in our own ways, we've
accomplished a lot," said
Romanus.
Jaehne, however, claims
the court receiver has hurt
some of the viatical investors
by seizing payoffs from insur-
ance companies for aviators
who died since 2004.
Jaehne also pointed out
that the receiver's claim
against MBC's sales agents
has been dismissed. A federal
court in Miami ruled that the
receiver lacks standing to sue
on behalf of the investors.
And Jaehne claims he sold
NIBC's viatcals in good faith.
He bought some of the settle-
ments himself, he said.
'"I feel bad for these peo-
ple." Iaehne added. "I feel bad
for their frustration. But to
accuse me of bilking them
out of their money is just way
out of line."
Gillis and Romanus shrug
off the Jaehne's arguments.
"They're going to take,
every avenue possible to fight
' this case," Romanus said.
"Skip Jaehne is a smart fel-
low," he added. "What gets\
me is, he could have made a
hell of a lot more money
being honest."

12A VENICE GONDOLA N


Building director stands



by ARB hospital decision


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

The stucco job is finally
starting to materialize at
Venice Regional Medical
Center, and Building and
Code Enforcement Director
Hans Behrens continues to
stand by his decision that
exterior improvements to the
hospital did not require
Architectural Review Board
approval.
Behrens elaborated this
week on the decision, which
was endorsed by City
Attorney Wayne Hall, that the
hospital did not need appear-
ance standards approval,
despite being inside of the
Venetian Theme District
along U.S. 41 Business.
Guidelines state that any
exterior improvements that
require a building permit
must be evaluated on
whether or not it meets strict
appearance standard require-
ments.
However, Behrens said the
hospital meets the exception
for stucco and paint jobs.
Both color selections use
preapproved colors, so ARB
members did not get to see
the case.
Without this exception,
ARB "members could have


forced the hospital to make
expensive improvements to
the windows, doors and roof
in order to come into compli-
ance.
The building, director
answered these reporter
questions after the regular
ARB meeting when members
decided not to force improve-
ments upon an apartment
owner at 207 North Harbor
Drive.
Much like the hospital, his
apartment is not even close to
Italian Renaissance architec-
tural themes and was grand-
fathered in years ago when
the appearance districts were
created. Making the apart-
ment come into compliance
would require so much work,
it would be like ordering the
property owner to rebuild the
building.
To his memory, ARB has
always worked with property
owners and never forced
someone to undergo that
extensive of renovations.
So even if the hospital had
to have went before ARB,
Behrens seriously doubts the
members would have forced
every door and window in the
331,000-square-foot building:
be replaced.
But since preapproved col-
ors were selected, the


$814,000 worth of stucco and
paint on one of the most visi-
ble structures in all of Venice
did hot require a review.

Why the rush in ending Monday standoff?


w hen a SWAT team member was con-
fronted by Raemond Eichelkraut,
aiming a handgun at the officer,
there was no question about the officer's next
move: fire his own weapon. Our police offi-
cers are hired to defend us, but they also
must defend themselves.
The shot from the officer's weapon killed
Eichelkraut, but one major question
remains: Why did the standoff get that far?
That leads to other questions that, so far,
remain unanswered by the Sarasota and
Charlotte county sheriff's offices and the
North Port Police Department. Officials say
they are investigating the fatal shooting, and
well they should.
We'd like to know why Eichelkraut's family
members were excluded from any negotia-
tions or efforts for him to give himself up.
Whywas Monday night's 12-hour standoff


short circuited? Why did the SWAT team
enter the Dustin Road house at all? Why did-
n't they wait out the suspect until morning?
We know some, but not all, of the facts
from the confrontation:
Eichelkraut and Suzanne, his wife of
about 15 years, had argued earlier in the day.
Eichelkraut had tried to bum her clothing
before she left their home. Police were called
and arrived at the house at 8:33 a.m.
Eichelkraut then barricaded himself in the
house, apparently firing his gun at his home.
Police were called and Charlotte and
Sarasota County Special Weapons' and
Tactics team officers sdon cordoned off the
area.
Eichelkraut's mother and father, both in
their 70s, his brother, Wally Jr., and his sister-
in-law were told to stay around the comer,
but were ignored, they say, by law enforce-


ment officials.
As the temperature rose into the 90s, liq-
uid refreshments and food were provided for
the .officers. The family was still ignored.
They say they were not advised of the
progress or lack of progress in the negotia-
tions. They claim that the officers gave them
only minimal information about their son
and brother.
Arid so, they waited. Officers fired tear gas
bombs into the home, telling the frightened
family a few minutes later that the blasts
were not from bullets.
The family members say they could have
talked Eichelkraut into giving himself up. But
they weren't asked. Nor were any people
trained in dealing with the emotions of such
an occurrence called to help the Eichelkraut
family.
A Sarasota County Sheriff's Office


spokesman told the Sun that during negoti-
ations, the negotiators get a feel if the suspect
wants to talk to the family. During this inci-
dent, they didn't feel that would help the sit-
uation.
The police had the electricity to the
Eichelkraut home turned off. Soon after,
Eichelkraut stopped communicating with
the officers by telephone as he had done spo-
radically during the day.
At 7:20 p.m., the SWAT team entered the
house and fatally shot Raemond Eichelkraut:
A North Port police sergeant "gently,"
according to the Sun report, told Jane
Eichelkraut her son was dead. He was 39
years old.
It's never a wise idea to enter into a con-
frontation with law enforcement. But it
shouldn't be a fatal mistake unless all other
avenues to end it have been exhausted.

t is wrong


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


If you have ever had to
drive on the left side of the
road, you probably know that
it is a very challenging and in
some cases exciting experi-
ence. Sue and I joined our
friends Mick and Adele
Gardner on a two-week trip in
Ireland and Scotand to expe-
rience this thrill and many
others.
We were in a van a big
vehicle, over there- going
down a lot of two-way streets
just slightly wider than the
Venetian Waterway Park trail
with cars parked on it. What
got our juices flowing was
when we would see a tour bus
coming our way. We would
have lost one hub cap, but the
rental people are getting
smart. They tie the hub caps
to the wheel so they won't pop
offwhen you run over curbs.
The thing that stuck out
the most about our trip was
the wonderful people of those
two countries. It seemed to
take me back maybe 40 years,
to a time in this country that
many in my generation wish
we could see experienced by
the current generation..
We did not venture any-
where that people didn't go
out of their way to help. It was
just amazing how thoughtful
people were, many who had
nothing to do with our stay,
there.
The family unit is still a big
Thing there. That may come
from the fact there are only
fve or six TV stations, not any
of which would fascinate a
teenager. They don't allow dri- ,
ving until 18. I would think
that keeps a faniily together
and reduces teenage driving
problems.
The caddie Mick and I had
at Old Head in southern
Ireland had his kids up at 6
a.m. playing the piano, violin
and guitar before they did
their farming chores or went
having fun. We almost never
saw police the whole time in
either country. We surmised
they just don't have the prob-
lems that require them. Being
on an island also allows for
much tighter immigration
laws.
Of course, theie were great
sights and it is hard to pick
one or two that were the best.
SWe loved the small, quaint
communities in both coun-
.tries. We visited places like
Kinsale, Cobh and Adare in
southern Ireland, and Crail
and Braemer in Scotland that,
were beautiful, had nice
shopping and a pub or two.


The pub concept is also a
link that ties communities
and groups together. Cobh,
once named Queenstown
because of a visit by the
Queen, had an interesting
history as the last port the
Titanic sailed from, and not
far from where the Lusitania
had been sunk.
It also was where most of
the millions of Irish left from
in the terrible famine years of
the late 1840s. They also had
"transport" ships used by the.
*government to send undesir-
ables to Australia and New
Zealand. This, I think, is what
Tony Blair is going to do with
dissidents connected to terror
in England more power to
him. Ireland was-9--million
people in 1845 and just now is
4 million.
Beauty abounded, particu-
larly in Ireland. It is dotted
with fragments of hundreds-
years-old churches, castles,
town walls, and such
destroyed in large part due to
Oliver Cromwell.
I found it humorous while
playing golf that I took a
penalty stroke because I hit a
ball into a graveyard, in the
middle of a fairway. That was
at Old Head again, which had
14th-century ruins of light-
houses and interesting stone
markings all around.
The cliffs, the gorgeous
lakes near Killamey, the beau-
tifully painted homes and
businesses in Ireland and the
dramatic highlands in
Scotland are just a few of the
pretty sights.
We went to several castles,
such as the Rock of Cashel in
Cashel, Ireland, and
Edinburgh Castle in Scotland.
Edinburgh Castle puts all oth-
ers I have ever seen to shame.
We visited the Waterford
Crystal factory, having to buy
lots of stuff in the store after-
ward. That process is
absolutely amazing.
We hit a smattering of
museums, one in a small fish-
ing village that traced the his-
tory of fishing in Scotland. We
saw the famous Book of Kells,
Written around 800 A.D. on
187 calf hides. The beauty of
the art and script was incredi-
'ble. Sue and I went to an
evensong, which was a night
church Service almost all in
song, at Christ Church in
Dublin.
The pub crawl in Dublin
was fun and helped us experi-
ence Irish beer, as we learned
about Irish songs, the instru-
ments and the pubs.
H-lowever, I have not warmed
up to Guinness vet
In Edinburgh they have a
festival all August, and this is
unlike anything we've experi-
enced. The main attractions
the wonderful "Tattoo," ormil-
itary show of big pipes, drum
corps, armyunits, dancers and
much more. This is held at the
entrance to Edinburgh castle.
It is awesome.

Shooting not murder, but not justified


Editor:
Although the shooting of Mr. Eichelkraut by the sheriff's
deputies was probably not murder, it certainly was not justi-
fied.
This shooting follows closely upon the shooting a couple of
weeks ago of another unarmed man by a SWAT team during a
drug raid in a back yard where children were playing. That
man, when ordered to stop, dropped to his knees and held out
his hands, whereupon he was shot in the back. That shooting
has already been called "justified" by the shooter's supervisors.
We got trouble right here in River City, and it's spelled with a
capital "t" as in "Trouble."
What would it take to be called "unjustified"?
There is a dangerous tendency of law enforcement to shoot
first and then think. Who is going to protect us from our police?
I fully expect both of these events to lead to large money
judgments when they get before a court, as well they should,
but that will not bring back the life of the victim.

Sheehan dishonors
her son's sacrifice
Editor:
Bush bashers and the
media have compared the
Iraq War to Vietnam. The
similarity is that the antiwar
protesters want to persuade
Americans to join them in
surrendering. The media's
canonization of Cindy
Sheehan encourages the ter-
rorists attacking our military
by giving them hope
America's will can be weakl-
ened.
Casey Sheehan was 24
years old when he reenlisted
in the U.S: Army despite his
'mother's objections. He vol-
unteered to go on the rescue
mission in which he gave his
life.
His mother, Cindy, speaks
for the far left antiwar move-
ment when she says,
"America is not worth dying
for," and the war is being


fought "for Israel." Her state-
merits dishonor her son's
sacrifice and all who serve.
Now many military fami-
lies are saying, "Cindy dQes-
n't speak for us." They are
proud of the sacrifices made
by their sons and daughters
and do not want us to aban-
don their mission in Iraq.
After we pulled out mil-
lions died in Cambodia and
Vietnam.' Abandoning Iraq.
would give the Islamic ter-
rorists a victory and embold-
en them to rebuild training
camps and escalate their
attacks. Chaos would ensue
and millions of Iraqis could
die in the aftermath.
The U.S. Army is exceed-
ing its reenlistment and first-
time enlistment goals.
Apparently, there are many
young Americans who 'do
believe that America is
worth dying for and they are
willing to risk their lives to


give millions of
chance to live in d
and freedom.
And all America
stand united with
tary in the global x
rorism.

Osprey munity won't allow delivery

Early to school
makes for problems

Editor:
As a parent of local
school-age children, I have
noticed a problem around
the schools.
This problem is that par-
ents and caregivers who pick
up their children from school
in the afternoon show up
way too early. At Glenallen
Elementary and Cranberry
Elementary the pick-up
starts at 3:20 pm. There are
people in line at 2 p.m. at
these schools.
This is a safety issue to me
as a parent. If there are cars
in front of the schools that
early, then the school staff
have to leave their posts to go
check out who is on the
property to keep our chil-
dren safe.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD THE HISTORIC WATER TOWER AND PUMP HOUSE AT EAGLE POINT BE SAVED
OR DESTROYED? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Who is that silent majority?

Opposing views. Dr. Gaunt recently wrote that she was a member of the silent majority that
favors theWaterford development. She is critical of those who oppose the venture and thinks we
should all thank Mr. Miller. She also thinks her views will reflect on the majority of the people in
our community. For someone who's lived here 30 years, I wonder where she's been hiding and
who she's been speaking to. I have also lived here many years, but my views and those of all my
friends do not agree with those of Dr. Gaunt. We are totally against high-rises, density and con-
gestion. Dr. Gaunt has a right to her opinion, but should not delude herself into thinking that
those views reflect those of other thoughtful people in our community.


Neglected road. Shame on
the city of Venice..We have
such a lovely city and much
money is spent on beautifica-
tion. But has anybody tried to
drive on Substation Road
lately? This is so full of deep
chuckholes that it is impossi-
ble to drive on. There are sev-
eral businesses, residents and
factories all taxpayers -
on this one short street.
Filling the hole with asphalt is
not a solution. The road must
be reworked. Even a gravel
road would be better than
'what is there.
EDITOR'S NOTE: As we have
reported, Substation is a private
road. Efforts to get the people and
businesses on it to pay for
repaving have been unsuccessful,
and the city has declined to take it
over at taxpayer expense -
until it is brought up to city stan-
dards. #
Give blood. We have an
unbelievably large amount of
retired people here, yet we are
constantly in need of blood in
this area. I think it might be
about time for some of these
retirees who -play golf and
enjoy themselves to take 15
minutes of their time and go
give blood.
Stop wasting money. I
don't think the city should
abandon the millage rate
decreases in the 10-year plan.
City hall is wasting money on
junk. I hear they have plenty
of money stashed away that
they won't let anybody know
about. I don't know what the
heck they're trying to do. They
just benefit themselves. They
should treat the taxpayers
right and stop blowing
money on this expensive junk
like trees and bridges. We
need to get rid of these guys
and get some people who
really care about Venice.
May be right. This is a
rebuttal to the person who
thinks the city of Venice has


become a rich, snobbish,
affluent little city. Maybe he's
right, but arrogance is unat-
tractive and tacky at this end.
Animal abuse. Shame on
the state of Florida for allow-
ing exotic creatures in pet
centers. This is animal abuse
at the extreme. Birds cannot
survive living in a cage. As
seen on nature shows, they go
insane. After the hurricane,
cats and dogs were left
behind by their owners to run
in the street. Pets abandoned
by owners is an absolute
shame. There must be a con-
trol by the state of exotic pets
and cats and dogs.
Too busy. Please, Sarasota
Memorial, come into the area
as soon as possible. We need
your service. I have just called
.the Venice office, and was
treated extremely rudely,
never having reached the
billing department, which I
wanted to speak to. Those
people are too busy for the
local people. Sarasota hospi-
tal, we welcome you:
Where would you be? To,
the caller who said they didn't
want workers housing:
Section 8 housing and work-
er's housing are needed in
Venice for those of us who
work and try to live here now.
We are the ones who bag your,
groceries, mow your lawn,
etc., etc. I want yOu to think
about where you'd really be if
all of us workers moved to
where we could afford to
work and live. Not a pretty
picture, is it?
Repairs? Isn't it interesting
that they can build the Lowe's
and Wal-Mart since January,
but they can't replace or
repair roofs or houses dam-
aged on Aug. 13, 2004?
A real pity. The person
who didn't want working
class people to live in Venice
is typical of the Marie
Antoinette mentality. Venice


was founded .by hard-work-
ing railroad men and their
families. Hard workers are not.
purse-snatchers or drug deal-
ers. Also, the trouble with
Section 8 housing was not
crime, but neglect by the
management. The biggest
problem Venice has is an
increase in people like this
caller, who flock here from
the North to enjoy their'gold-
en years. They create' water
shortages, traffic ,problems,
etc. The working class helps
to carry the burden with the
taxes they pay. If Venice has
indeed become a rich, sriob-
Sbish, affluent little city, that's
not something to be proud of,
but it's a real pity.
Parental responsibility.
Parents need to wake up and
be a parent and take respon-
sibility for who they brought
into this world. Quit relying
on everyone else. Start with
respect for people in general.
Stay inside. I'm for the
skateboarders. The old peo-
ple constantly complained
about the skate park, so it was
closed. Now the kids have
nowhere to skateboard. I
think the old people should
stay inside. It's too hot for
them anyway.
SBand camp? I'm very dis-
appointed in your local news-
paper for not covering any-
thing for the last two weeks of
Venice High School band
camp. Please have someone
check into this.
Money, money. School
board member Laura Benson
has the audacity to imply that
the reason our school missed
making the high testing rank-
ings is due to the inability of
our supervisory posts. For all
the years that Wilma
Hamilton was involved, there
was constant propaganda

more money is needed for

teach as well as they should?

constant cry of money,

Clean up. Because the
South Jetty is a premier
attraction and one of Venice's
most beautiful parks, I feel
that a spectacular job of clut-
ter removal should be done.,
The men emptying 'the
garbage cans remove the bag
and put a new bag in.
However, I have seen them
leave bottles and debris
under the can and in the sur-
rounding areas. Maybe it's
not in their job description to
pick up the litter. If so, whose
job is it?
Only fitting. I'm calling

Short-term thinking~
will be the death of us

Editor:
From neighborhood quar-
rels to world wars, we have
never lived in peace.
Competing sets of survival
instincts guarantee we never
will.
Evolution-driven short-
term survival instincts are
normal, natural and disas-
trous. They generate preda-
tory behavior characterized
by fear, greed, power, control,
immediate gratification, self-
centeredness, authoritarian-
ism, denial of inequality and
the like.
Evolution also gave us
large brains that enable us to
project where our behavior is'
taking us. It's not pretty.We're
like arn airplane withi some-
one on the wing popping riv-
ets until the plane crashes.
This awareness triggers long-
term survival instincts.
I Short-term instincts drive
politics that aim to destroy
one's perceived opponents,
whether individuals or


nation states. Lofg-term
thinkers understand that our
severe and complicated
problems don't allow us the
time, resources or energy to
fight with each other.
Short-,term thinkers
exploit people and our envi-
ronment, in contrast to those
who understand that life is a
far more complex phenome-
non than a race to see who
can accumulate the most in
the least amount of time.
Social interaction is char-
acterized by "we versus
them" and exclusivity as
opposed to long-term
thinkers' efforts to include,
integrate and assimilate.
In religion, it's my- truth
and God versus your truth
and God for short-term
thinkers. The more enlight-
ened urge kindness and
intelligent analysis of the ori-
gins and phenomenon of
ancient religions.
Polarized world views in
politics, business, social
interaction and religion
result in opposition, conflict/
and strife up to and includ-
ing wars. As a consequence,
the epic struggle for the evo-
lution and survival of
humanity continues unabat-
ed.

Here's how to really
make Venice safe

Editor:
While we're eliminating
"public safety hazards" from
the streets and sidewalks, let's
ask for citizen input to deter-
mine what else we can kick
out ofVenice.
My suggestions are: roller
blades, scooters (especially
powered), bicycles, jump
ropes, basketballs, footballs,
baseballs and bats, hockey
sticks and pucks, hula hoops,
water guns, large umbrellas,
bare feet, laughter, happy
faces, loud talking, boom
boxes, low-rider pants, shorts
* and- halters, spike heels,
excess cleavage, drivers over
80, holding hands and public
kissing.
And, just to make sure,
anyone under age 18.

VEDDER from page 13A


But along with that are
hundreds of other acts in
venues throughout the city of
every description. We were on
the plane with a ballet group
from Philadelphia that had
just performed "Swan Lake"
for a week.
It rains a lot, but they don't
call it rain. It is a way of life
over there. Playing the Old
Course at St. Andrews was
challenging enough in 20-30
mph winds, but rain mixed in
for nine holes really made it
interesting.. It was there I had
my one golf thrill on the trip,
besides almost making a hole.
in one at Ballybunion in
Ireland.
On the 18th hole at St.
Andrews the rain had
stopped. So, like most of the
time, there were a lot of peo-
ple watching playto that hole.
I got on the green in two and
proceeded to sink a pretty
long putt for a birdie, and got
nice' applause from the
crowd. I felt like Jack Nicklaus
- well, for just a second any-
way.
The beautiful flowers, dou-
ble-decker buses, distilleries,
quaint harbors, beautiful
streams, the ruins and so
much more made for a lot of
wonderful memories, all with
good friends. Oh yes, don't
forget the shopping.
You should make a point of
going.

As a follow-up to my rose
story, upon returning from
Ireland and Scotland I found
about five rose bushes in
bloom, with about five bush-
es dead. So at least I am back
to delivering flowers.

Got a cute note from Mary
Bogen Moyer with a clipping
from a paper from Beaver
Creek where a beaver had


been stolen. That might be
open to interpretation, so
what that means is a molding
like we had for pigs was taken.
They are now putting tracking
devices in some of the
beavers, such as the Golfing
Beaver.
******

By's Crack: Did you
hear of the postman with a
strange sense of humor?
Every time a husband sent
his wife a postcard saying,
"Having a wonderful time
wish you were here," he
erased the last "e."
****** *
I was very pleased to see
how Venice Regional Medical


Center stepped up to give the
YMCA $50,000 toward its. new
wellness center. Just more
evidence it is- a strong com-
munity partner.
******
Today's Ism (seen on a T-
shirt in the Waterford Crystal
factory): Save water, drink
beer.
******
Nice to come home and
see that some work had actu-
ally been done on the
Pinebrook extension. Let's
hope the next activity is not
so long in coming.
******
I'm also excited to see that
the beach renourishment is
done. It was only fitting, I
guess, that the celebration on


the beach was postponed
because of a tropical storm
due that day.

Kathy Lehner, one of the
chamber's Wake Up, Venice!
emcees each month, is pretty
funny. She mentioned that
the state flower for West
Virginia was the satellite dish.
******
Upon returning, I noticed
that the planning commission
voted for 45-foot heights for
the special district. That, need-
less to say, was disappointing
in light of what is a very strong
sentiment otherwise.
S ****** .1
Ed Littlehales, a great sub-
scriber and contributor to the
Gondolier Sun, turned 85


while at his summer home in
Skaneateles, N.Y. Happy
birthday, Ed. Many Venetians
enjoy that summer paradise.
******
Have received a lot of
papers, and even brought
some home from our trip.
Greg Miller almost went
over the weight limit bringing
me a dozen papers from
down under- New Zealand,
that is. They included the
New Zealand Herald, the
News, the Star-Times, Otago
Star Times and the Southland
Times, all printed on a very
wide format.
I like the large photos in
these papers. The newspaper
industry over here is going
the other way, narrowing the


paper and rendering a large
amount of their expensive
presses useless. I haven't fig-
ured out why they think
printing on paper about a
third narrower than capacity
is efficient use of plant and
equipment.
There were classified ads
in these papers for a senior
shepherd. It described the
herd as 60 percent deer, 30
percent cows and 10 percent
sheep.

. HAVING A BABY?
You're going to have a baby. Many plans to make for that little life that
will be. But wait a minute. That little life is already here, and developing
in truly amazing ways. Even in the tiny jaw bones things are rapidly
changing. By the fourth month the formation of the tooth structure has
started. By the sixth, all 20 of the baby teeth have started to develop.
By birth, calcification of these teeth is on its way to completion, and
there is beginning formation of the first permanent molars although
These won't appear in the mouth until age six.
Although it occasionally happens that a tooth erupts before birth, it is
quite rare. We can, however, expect to see the first baby tooth at about
six months with the other teeth appearing in a predetermined pattern
until 24 months. In order for these teeth to be well formed and healthy,
'their developing conditions must be ideal. It depends on you, Mother-
to-be. The quality of your baby's teeth depends largely on the care you
give your body.

,Stop on Red' campaign launches Aug. 30


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County and local
law enforcement agencies
will launch an "I Stop on Red"
campaign during a news con-
ference at 10 a.m. Tuesday,
Aug. 30, at the northwest cor-
ner of the Target parking lot,
5350 Fruitville Road, Sarasota.
Melissa Wandall will be the
keynote speaker for the news
conference. Wandall is a local
resident whose husband was
killed in a 2003 traffic accident
caused by ared-lightrunnerjust
two weeks before their babywas
born.
Wandall, who has estab-
lished a foundation to promote
red-light education, will be
joined by speakers representing
Sarasota County, Sarasota Po-
lice Department, Venice Police
Department North Port Police
Department and Florida High-
wayPatroL Theywill address the
problems of red light running,


personal responsibility for
changingbehavior and enforce-
ment efforts to stop offenders.
Between 1992 and 2000, fatal
crashes at traffic signals in-
creased 19 percent nationally,
outpacing the rise in all other
fatal crashes, according to the
Federal Highway Administra-
tion. FHWA figures from 1998
show that red-light running
accounted for about 89,000
crashes, 80,000 injuries and
nearly 1,000 deaths.
Tuesday's news conference
will mark the community's par-
ticipation in National Stop on
Red Week, which runs from
Aug. 27-Sept 2. Tuesday's event
is being held at intersection of
Fruitville Road and HonoreAve-
nue to highlight "enforcement
lights," also known as "white
lights," that are visible in every
direction at that intersection.
Seeing the white
Supplied by the Florida


Department of Transporta-
tion, these lights are wired
into the same electrical cir-
cuit as the red light in a traffic
signal, so the lights shine
simultaneously. Because of
the white light's location, law
enforcement officers can
determine from varying
angles whether the signal
light is red, allowing police to
monitor more than ope direc-
tion at a time.
Enforcement lights have
been installed at six state road
intersections with high acci-
dent rates: Bee Ridge Road
and Beneva Road, Bee Ridge
Road and McIntosh Road,
Bee Ridge Road and
Cattlemen Road, Fruitville
Road and Cattlemen Road,
Fruitville Road and Honore

BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER,

Tony "Bones" Fiorentino
has a giant purple Grimace in
his garage and it's hungry for
sound.
While most bands start out
in a garage. Fiorentino started
out recording people in a 8
foot by 12 foot room. Now his
garage is covered with purple-
colored insulation tiles. The
Sdark squares cover every inch
of his studio appropriately
named Bare Bones.
Fiorentino's studio is a
1,000-square-foot space lo-
cated in Nokomis.
"My father bought me a
tape recorder when I was
about 9 years old," Fiorentino
said. "I've been a musician
since 7, so I've been recording
myself since I was 10. I used.

to cut up tape and learn the
music backwards and then
rerecord it and play it forward
again so it sounded like Rus-
sian."
Big studios aren't surviving
anymore unless a 100-piece
orchestra needs to make a
CD, so studios like Bare,Bones
are quickly becoming the
norm.
Fiorentino started out with
a two-track recorder record-
ing people in a basement in
NewYork. Now he puts about
$25,000 worth of equipment
into his studio ,each year.
"I have to make that mon-
ey before I can put a penny in
my pocket," Fiorentino said.
"I consider mivself a full-time
musician still."
Fiorentino was born in
Manhattan and grew up
around Astoria and Flushing


These are just a sample of the recordings Fiorentino has done
over the years,


Bare Bones Recording Studio is notorious for its comfy atmosphere.


in Queens. He's played pri-
maril guitar since 1959.
"I ooled around with bass
a little bit during the 60s,"
'Fiorentino said. "I' know
enough to where a guy can
come in and say 'I strum an
acoustic guitar and I brought
a drummer with me but I
need you to put all the bass
lines down.' I can do that.
Especially if it's not anything
real complicated."
Fiorentino also plays a lit-
tle bit of keyboard, too. He is
the studio musician for Bare
Bones, but ifa piece calls for a
specialty instrument like a
peddle steal or a banjo, other
musicians are brought in.
"The problem is that if you
don't have studio experience
you could be the greatest
musician in the world and be
worth absolutely nothing.
Can't use you. Studio is a
whole different animal. You're
under a microscope con-
stantly and if you have a prob-
lem with playing something
and you want it to be
absolutely perfect every take
it's not going to happen.!'
To save tine and money it
is highly advisable that musi-
cians practice their material
over and over again before
going to record.
Most of the material that


comes through the studio is
reggae, blues, pop, rock and
even jazz.
Some bands Fiorentino
has recorded include Swing-
ing Bridge Bluegrass, Dave
Lapio & Tropical Steel, The
Gunn Runners and Yancey
deVeer.
"The.reason I call it Bare
Bones is because I'm not real
fancy," Fiorentino said. "I did-
n't spend $250,000 on the
building. I can make it a day


or night session depending
on what they want to do."
While some people spend
upwards of $50,000 for an 18-
month course at a production
school, Fiorentino has relied
on his ears and years of expe-
rience. Many people try to
break into the recording busi-
ness, which is really part of
the music business, so the
success rate is not,very high.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist


Q. My husband's hearing
aids "whistle" or "squeal"
when he turns his head to
the side or looks up. When.
this happens, I have to tell
him to turn his hearini aid
down because he does not
hear it himself. Sdoetinies
his hearing aid will whistle
in church where everyone
can hear it. This is so
embarrassing for both of us
that he no longer wears his
hearing aids in church and
Cannot enjoy the service. Is
there anything we can do to
prevent the hearing aids
from "whistling"?
A. "Whistling" is known as
acoustic feedback and it
occurs when sound from the
,hearing aid speaker returns
to the microphone inlet
creating a loop called the
feedback path. This is
typically the result of sound
escaping from the ear canal
through the earmold or
through the venta The
escaped sound re-enters the
microphone and is re-
amplified beyond the
maximum output capabilities
of the instrument. The result
is a loud "whistle" which the
wearer and those around
them can hear. ,Most
approaches to managing
feedback usually result in
reducing the power '(or gain)
the hearing aid produces and
this can greatly interfere with
the wearer's ability to hear
clearly. New feedback
management techniques can
now avoid this problem, The
new technology constantly
monitors the hearing aid for
the presence of feedback and
automatically eliminates it
before it becomes audible!
The Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. can
evaluate your hearing
instruments to determine if
they are equipped with a
feedback management
system. If you or someone
you know, have hearing aids
that "whistle", call the
Audiologists at 492-4327 for
more information about
Feedback management
technology.

Automobile aids may help seniors


JIM MILLER-
GUEST COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
I watched you on the "To-
day" show last month demon-
strating some different items
that seniors can add totheir cars
to help their driving. My parents
are both in their late 70s and
could use a little extra help. Can
you please list' the different
items you showed and where I
can get them? Back Seat Son
Dear Back Seat
I'm glad you asked! With
nearly 14 million drivers age
65 and older in the United.
States today, more attention
needs to be given to keeping.
older drivers safe. To help
your parents, a smart move
would be to first visit with a
driver rehabilitation special-
ist who can assess their spe-


cific needs and make appro-
priate recommendations. To
locate a specialist in your
area visit aota.org/olderdriv-
er or call (888) 232-1184.
Driving helpers
While age doesn't make
someone a bad driver, it does
typically bring about the
physical changes (reduced
mobility, strength, vision and
sensitivity to glare) that can
make driving more difficult.
Here are some simple items
(all under $40) that can make
operating an automobile eas-
ier and safer, and help keep
older drivers driving longer.
Entry and exit
'Getting into and out of a
car can be very challenging
for seniors who are less
mobile. Some items that.can
help include:
Swivel Seat Cushion: This
padded seat with a swivel
base will help you into the
car more easily. A plastic
trash bag or silk scarf spread
out on the seat can also help
you scoot into position easi-
er.
Handybar and
CarCaddie: These are
portable handles that can


help you get out of the car
safely and securely. You can
find all these items at
dynamic-living.com (888)
940-0605.
Vision helpers
If you find that you've'
become more sensitive to
sun glare, or have lost some
mobility in your neck that
makes looking back over
your shoulder difficult, con-
sider these:
Sun Glare Shield: It clips
on your sun visor and pro-
vides extra protection from
sun glare. Available at
autosportcatalog.com (800)
953-0814.
Panoramic RearView
Mirror: A convex-like mirror
(attaches to your rear view
mirror) that increases
peripheral vision and helps
eliminate blind spots so you
can see traffic to the sides
and rear without significant
neck or body rotation. It also
helps during parking.
Convex Side View Mirror
(corner wedge): Attaches to
side view mirrors to improve
side and rear vision. You can
find convex mirrors at auto
supply stores or at auto-
bar.com (888) 484-9560.


Seat belt aids
Providing comfort without
sacrificing safety is the goal
with seat belt aids. Here are
some items to try:
Easy Reach Seat Belt
Handle: A six-inch extension
handle that attaches to your
seat belt to make it easier to
reach. Ideal for those who
suffer from arthritis or limit-
ed mobility. dynamic-
living.com (888) 940-0605.
Seat Belt Pad: Protect
your neck and shoulder from
rubbing and chafing.
Available in auto supply
stores or at autosportcata-
log.com (800) 953-0814.
Seat Belt Strap Adjuster:
Allows you to position your
seat belt shoulder strap
between your shoulder and
neck for greater comfort and
safety. Available in auto sup-
ply stores or at
magellans.com (800) 962-
4943.
Extra helpers
If you suffer from arthritis
in your hands or need some
help seeing over the steering
wheel or reaching the foot
pedals, you may find these

Did you ever wonder why
we spend half a lifetime col-

we divide our things. Maybe
one way is to just have one
child. Another is to not leave
things to anybody in our life-
time, and then we won't know
if there are any hard feelings
after we are gone.
After my mother's death,
we divided everything very
evenly. What few things were
left in the home we divided
into 'even piles and took our
choice. Before her death my
sister had taken a set of rare
flowered'English bone china
which was so beautiful. And I
have to admit sometimes I
was a tiny bit green with envy.
Can any of us ever avoid atiny
bit of jealousy? Would my life
really been richer if I had
those dishes? No, and I am
glad her lovely granddaughter
now has them to enjoy.


My husband and I were
fortunate to inherit nice
"things" from five different
sources and my children have
benefited as well. When we
moved to Michigan we could
buy attractive oak pieces for a
song. Would you believe that
at one time we had four oak
dining room tablesWhert we
were looking for houses to
buy, we didn't like one but we
sure liked the round oak table
in the kitchen. We paid
between $25 for the table and
four chairs. That is the now
the table that my son and his
family eat at each day.
Another time it was hard to
resist a beautifully designed
antique dentist cabinet, com-
plete with carvings, a mirror
arid drawers for drill bits. It is
now a show piece in my other

son's home.
Is there any way to avoid
family jealousies? My son says
he read about family auctions
which seemed to be a good
idea. When siblings quibble
over a single item they can bid
against each other to see who
wants it most. The bids go
against the winner's total
inheritance. This way every-
one has a chance to see how
much they really want some-
thing. It should do wonders in
stopping sibling rivals who
might really say they want
something just cause "sis"
does.

DEUPREE : :,
that there is no such thing as
fairness in life. But I have tried
to be fair by giving good jew-
elry to children and grand-
children on special occasions
and to give all the children
"things" before their homes
were completely established.
When we moved from a
three-story house in Big
Rapids to a smaller home we
sent a half-truck load of furni-
ture and "things" to each
child. Fortunately our chil-
dren were' interested in our
antiques. My daughter's
home is almost entirely fur-
nished with pieces inherited
from different family mem-
bers. My son's family's living
room is designed around a


wine colored velvet Victorian
sofa that he slept on as a child
50 years ago at his grandpar-
ents home.
My daughter tells me that
we made a list of the valuable
Things in the house and asked
each child what they wanted.
When we were ready to let go
of an item, we gave it to the
child who asked for it. By
time I was ready to move into
assisted living most of my
favorite possessions had been
given away. When I visit fami-
ly members I get to see them
again and have the pleasure
of knowing that my family
really enjoys them.
Will my grandchildren
want to inherit these family
heirlooms? I dunno!
I have one friend who


keeps everything and another
friend who is a throw-a'wayer.
What am I going to do?
What am I going to do?
Should I throw it away,
stow it away or give it away?
What am I going to do?
What am I going to do?
Shall I give it.to my daugh-
ter or give it to my son?
What am I going to do?
What am I going to do?
If I give it to my daughter or
give it to my son
Do you think either would
envy the other one?

year-old legally'blind resident

al column for this page.


RATTLER from page 1B
Fiorentino has recorded
bands from Chile, Argentina,
Colombia, South America. He
had a number one Caribbean
hit record out of Bonaire in
the Dutch Antilles. They came
all the way to Nokomis just to
record with Fiorentino.
"I have a passion," Fior-
entino said. "I have to put 110
percent into a collaborative
effort to make people proud
of their work."
Besides all of the equip-
ment and machines digital
recording uses, computers
are involved, which throws


traditional recording prac-
tices out the window. Fior-
entino still uses the analog
method and blends it with
the digital technology to get
the best sound.
S "I have Digital Performer
software that I record directly
into. If you have ProTools or
Steinberg Audio or whatever,
it's like being in a different
world," Fiorentino said.
"Probably the younger you
are, the easier it is," Fior-
entino said of the computer-
ized recording. "At my age it's
sort of like starting all over
again. Really I much prefer an
analog system because this is


an analog board, but every-
thing goes into the computer.
I have really nice digital con-
verters. It's really state-of-the-
art stuff."
Fiorentino said he always
goes for the best equipment
he can get on a reasonable
budget.
"I .get the best possible
equipment to get the best
possible sound I can get. I'm
always looking at new stuff. If
I see something I like I'll at
least audition it first."

Sleeping help
Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you tell me about senior
sleeping problems and how to
get help? My husband has never
been a good sleeper but it's got-
ten worse the past few years. I
think he has a sleeping disorder
but he thinks I'm exaggerating.
What can you tell us? Retired
and Tired
Dear Tired,
For many people, just
when they enter retirement


and finally have time to
sleep, nature plays a dirty
trick. They get less sleep and
what they do get is poorer
quality. Here's what you
should know.
Sleeping disorders
There are nearly 40 million
Americans that suffer from
sleep disorders and most
don't know it. The three
major disorders that affect
older adults are:
Insomnia: Around 60
percent of people Ider than
age 65 have trouble falling or
staying asleep (a few nights a
week) due to various reasons
such as arthritis pain, stress,
heartburn, depression, noise,
medication and more. See
S"sleeping help" and "sleeping
tips" below for possible solu-
tions or visit sleepfounda-
tion.org.
Sleep apnea: About 18
million people have sleep
apnea, which is a disorder
that stops breathing repeat-
edly during sleep, sometimes
hundreds of times, and caus-,
es poor quality sleep.
Untreated sleep apnea can
also cause a host of serious
health problems including
high blood pressure, heart
attack and stroke. If you are a'
heavy snorer, you need to be
tested. For free publications
on sleep apnea and treat-
ment options visit sleepap-
nea.org or call (202) 293-
3650.
Restless Legs Syndrome
(RLS): Around 8 percent of
Americans have RLS, which
is an overwhelming urge to
move the legs usually caused
by unpleasant sensations.
While there's no known cure'

for RLS there are a variety of
effective medications that
can treat it. For more infor-
mation or to locate a RLS
specialist visit rls.org or call
(877) 463-6757.
Sleeping help
Few doctors know much
.about sleep. In fact, less than
5 percent of people with
sleep disorders receive a
proper diagnosis, but a good
sleep center or sleep special-
ist can help you. To locate
one in your area visit the
American Academy of Sleep
Medicine at aasmnet.org or
call (888) 412-9253. Here are
some possible treatment
options to consider:
Behavioral therapies:
These are drug-free
approaches to treating
insomnia that includes: cog-
nitive behavioral therapy,
where you change your nega-
tive thoughts that are keep-
ing you awake; sleep restric-
tion, where patients are ini-
tially sleep deprived- and
relaxation techniques. Most
behavioral treatments are
offered in sleep centers.

Wheeling around London; you can do it!


BY DERRICK OLSON
GUEST WRITER

Considering a special trip
abroad but worried about
accessibility issues? Here is,
how my mother and I accom-
plished our trip with minimal
worries and hassles. This
summer was very special and
unlike any other past for me,
a college student and my
mother, who must use an
electric wheelchair to get
around.
We planned an interna-
tional trip to historic and
foggy London. We made an
effort to vary our methods of
transportation and ended up
traveling by air, by train and
by bus. My job was to deal
with the luggage and make
sure my mother and the elec-
tric wheelchair (called the Go
Chair) would be accommo-
dated at our various destina-
tions.
We learned the impor-
tance of preplanning to re-
duce surprises and disap-
pointments. While there were
some unique challenges and
accompanying stress, it was
also a trip full of unique expe-
riences.
We hope sharing our ad-
ventures and mishaps will be
helpful for those travelers
needing physical assistance.
Jet setting
Anyone who is physically
challenged, whether in a
wheelchair or otherwise,
needs to be prepared to have
a "body search" at-any airport.
The gloved hands of a
stranger were rather uncom-
fortable for my mother, but
nowadays security precau-
tions are needed for every-
one.I was rather glad, howev-
er, that she was not required
to remove my shoes because
a new device can now detect
any foreign substance on the
feet.When that device is used,
shoes can stay on the feet
where they belong.
Specifically, the.preplan-
Sning with Jet Blue and British
Airways was critical. In addi-
tion to the traditional manual
wheelchair with the Sky Cap"
assistance, an aisle chair
allows entry into the airplane
and transportation to your
passenger seat. This experi-
ence was rather like having
ones body compressed into a
form at least 30 pounds nar-
rower. It was kept on the
plane for departing and for
availability to the lavatory,
which, on.a six-hour flight, is
certainly crucial.
SOptions for traveling
include: making arrange-
ments for ope's own chair to
be flown, oi perhaps renting
an electric chair and making
sure it is available, perhaps at
your hotel, upon arrival. We
were fortunate enough be
able to make arrangements
with Pride Mobility and their
London representative for
use of the new electric Go
Chair upon our arrival.,
As we gathered our lug-
gage, we had an unexpected
surprise Jet Blue wheel-
chairs do not leave the Jet
Blue terminal. To 'get to the
British Airways Terminal at
JFK meant solving a real
problem of transporting from
one terminal to another.
Thank heavens for calm com-
munication and cooperation
from the Jet Blue airline to
allow one of its wheelchairs
with mother in it to be rolled
to British Airways. It was also
quite a "trip" for me with our
entire luggage collection. In
contacting our travel agent at
JFK we were able to alert her
to a potential difficulty upon
our return; especially since
the airport buses are not
accessible for wheelchairs.
However JFK does have an
elevated train service .be-
tween terminals that is
wheelchair accessible.


The long trip across the
Atlantic was helped enor-
mously by having the good


luck of empty seats nearby. It
felt so good to stretch out,
especially after so much sit-
ting. (Editor's note: Derrick
SOlson is 6 feet 4 inches tall.)
Making a smooth landing
Upon landing, it was fun to
hear the British accents at the
Heathrow Airport and to
learn the day was not rainy
and cold, especially impor-
tant to us Florida residents.
We were not prepared, how-
ever, to take a taxi to the
Bonnington Hotel as arrange-
ments had been made to use
the Hotel Link transportation,
suggested by our travel agent.
It was not fun to learn that
this prepaid transportation to
our hotel was not wheelchair
accessible. Anyone using a
prepaid service to travel from
Heathrow, or any other air-
port, to their hotel should.
make sure and communicate
exact needs to the service,
such as if you can transfer
from your chair, climb a step
into a van, etc. Other trans-
portation methods from
Heathrow include tube ser-
vice; however there are limit-
ed Underground stations that
are completely handicap ac-
cessible with elevators.
Weighed down with luggage
and weary from travel this
might end up being more
hassle than it is worth.
Fortunately for us, extra
cash converted to pounds in
advance enabled us to use a
taxi to get to our hotel. ATMs
at the airport provide ready
cash in the local currency but
may not be available in all
parts of the world. Check in
. advance.
One really has not lived, as
they say, until experiencing a
ride in a London cab. In fact,
all the black cabs are required
to have some kind of ramp for
wheelchair access. A warning:
the meter continues to run as
the ramp is extended auto-
matically, or by hand from the
small trunk of the cab. A good
tip is to look for newer model
cabs (easily identified by the
smoother curves on the cab
body styling) which have
ramps that simply have to be
unscrewed with a key and are
hassle-free. Holding onto the
seat rails was really necessary
in the busy London traffic. It
was a relief to have someone
else drive as getting used to
the U.K system of driving on
the right was not our "cup of
tea."
Settling in
The Bonnington Hotel in
Hampton Row was wonder-
ful. It had an elevator, user
friendly bath and no steps at
the entrance. In addition the
staff members were very
accommodating. The Bon-
nington is located in the
Bloomsbury area of London
known for its literary figures,
booksellers, publishers, Vic-
torian architecture and char-
acter as well as home of the
University of London. But, its
most famous claim to fame in
the Bloomsbury area is the
British Museum.
Historical joumey
The outside area of the
British Museum was awe-
some with its classical Greek
portico, massive columns,
and huge steps. Fortunately,
there is a unique wheelchair
"lift" located to the right side
of the entrance. Upon enter-
ing the glass elevator, a but-
ton in plain view can be
pushed that allows one to
move upward. Not quite up tO
the sky, but rather' to the
entrance level of the muse-
um. This .open air '"lift" was a
marvelous method to get ini
and Out without needing
extra assistance. Indepen-
dence is always preferable
over dependence, especially
when traveling.
Once inside the British
Museum, the oldest museum


in the world, I picked up a
great informational booklet,


'Access Information." It out-
lines access and facilities that
are barrier free, as well as spe-
cific visual and audio guides
that are available. While I did
not meet the museum staff
member responsible for ac-
cessibility planning, I learned
of its Web site (thebritish-
musuem.ac.uk). The staff at
the information center and at
the reading room could not
have been more helpful.
Sir Hans Sloane began the
rich collection of artifacts that
have been added to since
1753. What to see was a diffi-
cult decision, but we particu-
larly enjoyed exploring the
British Museum's Great Col-
lections of Western Asian Art,
Greece and Roman artifacts,
the Coin and Paper Money
Display, as well as the
Egyptian Mummies. We were
so captivated by the wealth of
treasures that we returned
twice to see as many of the 94
Rooms and Galleries as my
eyes would behold. We ob-
served quickly with so many
crowds also visiting the Brit-
ish Museum that it was less of
a hassle to navigate in the
opposite direction of other
visitors. It was also possible to
easily find and use the
restrooms, or "water closets,"
which had'a special button to
push should you need imme-
diate assistance. A comforting
thought. As I saw stairs from
the Oriental Art Exhibition on
Level Three, I was relieved to
also see another lift, which
was easy to operate.
Other attractions
Other visits in London
were to the National Portrait
Gallery, where Tony Blair gave
his 2005 reelection speech,
the Tate Britain, with its'
multi-collection of J. M. W
Turner paintings, and the
British Airways London Eye (a
giant Ferris wheel overlooking
the city of London, rising 365
feet above the ground) were
all easily navigated with well-
placed ramps, entrance ways.
and handicap-designated
restrooms. Armchair travelers
will be glad to know that
many of these attractions
allow for their direct entrance
without having to fight
through long, packed lines of
other people.
According to the View 360
London Eye, booklet, the
structure was created to cele--
brate the millennium. The
panoramic views, stretching
nearly 25 miles were mind
boggling. Some famous sights
that can be seen include
Parliament and Big Ben, West-
minster Abby, and Westmin-
ster Bridge to the south and to
the north, Charring Cross
Station and Cleopatra's Need-
le. Looking to the east you can
see the Tate Modern Gallery
and the Tower of London and
to the West are Buckingham
Palace, St. James Park, and
Lord Nelson's monument. It is
also exciting to get a bird's
eye view of all the activities
around the Thames River.
At the National History
Museum with its hot-to-be-
missed dinosaurs and many
other stuffed and rare species.
we wished that the exhibit
descriptions, especially for
the Enlightenment Collection
were more readable from a
seated position. On inquiry I
was informed that the glass
cases were more than 50 years
old and their height could not

be lowered. So much for
being short as a person seated
in a wheelchair. The staff in
the main gift shop were extra-
ordinary pleasant, and we
were overjoyed with their help
to find exquisite bird prints
for sale by Sir John Gould,
famous 17th century wildlife
illustrator.
London drama
I was able to get us theater
tickets at the half-price booth
in Leicester Square. We saw
"Les Miserables" at the
Queens Theatre in the West
End of London. Wherever you
acquire theater tickets make
sure the theater or booking
agent understands clearly if
you would like to transfer to
an existing seat (which might
require some mild acrobatics)
or simply a space to park your
chair. While the ticket manger
in our case miscommunicat-
ed to the theater that my
mother needed to stayingn her
wheelchair throughout the
performance, it was resolved
with the help of several ushers
replacing the empty space
with a regular theater seat.
Special seating can be great,
but also very isolating from
the rest of the audience.
Keep in mind different the-
aters incorporate different
methods of handicap seating.
A good guide to theaters and
accessibility is "The Arts.and
Entertainment in London," a
helpful book even though
published in 1998. For a bit of
added "drama" to your the-
ater experience you can try
camping out at the backstage
door to meet a few members
of the cast. It was memorable
for us to interact with the
leading man, of "Le Misr,-
'erables," Sean Kinsley, up
close and personal at. the
backstage door. My'mother
will treasure the playbill with
his signature and "all my love"
added.


The bitters experience


Everyone visiting London
wants to have the pub experi-
ence and maybe even the tra-
ditional fish;and chips with
"mashed" peas. Be mindful
that most pubs are not acces-
sible due to steps at the
entrance, but do not be dis-
couraged. It is not hard to find
at least one establishment
you can get into on essential-
ly every busy street such as
Russell Square, Piccadilly or
Oxford Street. These pubs are
typically pretty busy inside.
However, most patrons are
very accommodating and will
make room and even help
you inside; that is if you do
not mind be lifted by a few
strong, but not necessarily
sober, Brits.
One of our favorite pubs
was the Museum Tavern,
which for more than 260 years
has provided ales, wine and
other spirits, food, and hospi-
tality to Bloomsbury residents
and visitors alike to the British
Museum. The vibrant history
of this tavern is written in
great, detail in the booklet by
John N. Henderson, printed
in 1989.
After a beer or two and
great socializing with the area

regulars, should Mother
Nature call, it is best to check
out the accessibility before
ordering liquid refreshments.
Not only are the local politics
of the day discussed, but
British pubs provide good
locations for recharging the
spirit, travel weary body, and
electric chairs. Thank heav-
ens we found several outlets
so that the Go-Chair could-
begin to resemble the "ener-
gizer bunny." Having brought
an electric converter for just
this purpose, we recharged
the Go-Chair every night in
our hotel room. Except for the
night we forgot, which slowed
down its speed considerably
the next day. Thank heavens
for the ability to recharge at
London museums amid great
art, especially at the Tate
Modern, which is about to
celebrate its fifth anniversary.
The former electric plant is
now the most visited muse-
um in London, and the Olin
Roden and Picasso paintings
are visions of great color and
talent. A fabulous collection
of Soviet propaganda posters
provided a unique historical
glimpse of communism.
Mass transit


Rolling on the streets of
London with its wonderful
curb cuts and green passen-
ger go traffic signs with notice
to "look to the right," provid-
ed fun in absorbing the
London culture, shops, archi-
tecture, and double-decker
red buses. It was amazing to
see the universal handicap
symbol on public transporta-
tion in London and even bet-
ter to push the designed but-
ton and witness' the ramp
quickly jet forward for wheel-
chair access.
I made sure to alert the bus
driver of a wheelchair passen-
ger needing to "get on the
bus." Our budgets were saved
considerably by being able to
ride the London buses. While
black taxis are a convenient
point A to B option they tend
to drain pounds quickly -
British currency pounds. The
catch, ofcourse, was to iden-
tify the newer, lower, red
buses which were accessible.
Once on board, directly in


front of the ramp entrance
was the sign reading, "Please
allow a wheelchair user to use
this space." Handrails were
nearby in case of a quick,
bloody stop. My mother held
on tightly all the time. The
automatic ramps of the buses
were often times more conve-
nient then being pushed into
older black cabs which use
two separate metal ramps. Be
forewarned to have a sense'of
humor after pushing the
ramp button, however, as
everyone within a city block
will be warned of the fact the
ramp is being lowered. For
even more comedy, occasion-
ally a bus willbe too far from
the curb which mandates a
huge double-decker bus
reversing and pulling closer
to the curb for the ramp to
reach. Also keep an eye out
for post boxes and trash cans
that might interfere with the
ramp on the curb.
Cheers and Go-Chairs
All in all London provides
an opportunity to experience
a vast amount of culture, rich
history and a uniqueness that
makes navigating the cobbled
streets .a rewarding experi-
ence.
Armchair traveling is defi-
nitely possible for anyone
requiring extra mobility,
especially with. travel by the
Pride Go-Chair. It was great in
providing wonderful maneu-
verability with a turning
radius of only 19 inches. We
found tight spaces, narrow
hallways and entryways, all
common hurtles, not only in
Europe but in everyday trav-
els most everywhere, were "a
piece of cake" and the "icing"
was the Go-Chair portability.
Go for It. No one, not even
persons who are physically
challenged, need to stay
home. In fact, my mother is
already planning her next
trip; how about you?
For more information on
the Go-Chair you can
visit their Web site at
ActiveForever.com. This was
Derrick and Susan Olson's
third European trip together,
and they look forward to
wherever their travels take
them next.

Kids wallow in Pig Summer events at Selby Public Library


STAFF REPORT

Reading was the goal and
pigs were the prize, as Selby
Public Library held special
Pig Summer events that
attracted thousands of kids in
June and July. The reading
incentive program featured
entertaining and educational
activities for children of all
ages, and allowed kids to dec-
orate and take home their
own personalized piggy bank
filled with stickers earned
from reading books.
, Every day a child read, he
or she earned a sticker to


"feed" a pig. This kept families
returning to the library all
summer to make sure their
pigs never went hungry. The
personalized pigs were dis-
played throughout the library.
Staff and patrons had fun
picking out their favorites
from among the amazing va-
riety of styles, colors and
themes that made each pig
unique.
The many pig-themed
events of Pig Summer includ-
ed the kick-off ice cream
"Pignic" (yes, they pigged out)
and a final end-of-summer
"Porcine Reception." Other


activities included "Pig Tales"
(story hours), "Pig Pens"
(book writing workshops for
kids 6-12), "Pig Plays" theater
workshops for teens and "Pig
Parties," with musicians, sto-
rytellers, puppets, reptiles
and jugglers.
"Pig Summer" was one of
the most successful summer
reading programs ever held at
Selby Library. More than 5,000
kids participated in the events,
and 764 pigs were decorated
and "fed" by their proud own-
ers. Some of the proceeds from
the Sarasota Reading Festival,
an event held each November


in and around Selby Public
Library, provided $10,000 in
funding for the summer-long
program as part of the festival's
commitment to family literacy.
Selby Public Library is
located at 1331 First St.,
Sarasota.
For more information
about Selby Library and the
Sarasota County Library
System, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-

tem's Web site at sclibs.net

scription sleeping pill called
Lunesta. Recently approved
by the FDA, it can be taken
long-term without losing its
effectiveness or causing
addiction. Two other new
sleep drugs to ask you doctor
about are Rozerem and
Indoplin.
Sleeping tips
To help you-get your zzz's
here are some extra tips to
consider:
SStick to a schedule: Go to
bed at the same time every
night and get up at the same
time every morning even
on weekends.'


Sleep-friendly environ-
ment: Make your bedroom a
dark, quiet, comfortable and
cool place to sleep.
Exercise: The best time
to exercise to enhance sleep
is late in the afternoon.
Ditch the vices late in the
day: Big meals close to bed-
time can disturb sleep.
Caffeine and nicotine are
stimulants that make it hard-
er to get to sleep. And alcohol
can lead to wakefulness in
the middle of the night.:
Bedtime snack Dairy
products (milk, yogurt) and
carbohydrates (bread. cereal)
are good bedtime snacks that


trigger serotonin, which
makes you sleepy.
Check your meds: Some
prescription drugs can inter-
fere with sleep including
some antidepressants, high
blood pressure, thyroid hor-
mone and respiratory med-
ications. Also, many over-
the-counter pain medica-
tions, decongestants and
weight-loss products contain
caffeine and other stimu-
lants. If you suspect a medi-
cine is interfering with your
sleep, talk to your doctor
about switching drugs, low-
ering the dosage or.changing
the time of day you take it.


Napping: If you like to
nap keep it under an hour
and do it before 3 p.m.
Bedtime rituals: Create a
relaxing pre-bedtime routine
like reading, listening to
soothing music or taking a
hot bath that can help you
calm your mind and
unwind.

my wife, Sue, and I were
young, we had to use sheets on
the windows of our first home.
That's why we furnish verticals
and blinds on the windows of

"My father and I have been

Revive your


bathroom


surfaces


By STACY DOWNS.
KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The
bathroom is supposed to be a
spa retreat, right? But chips on
the tub, stains in the sink and
ugly tile are less than luxuri-
ous.
So it comes down to a
choice: refinish or replace.
If it were easy, the best
option would be to reglaze
porcelain-enameled fixtures
by re-firing them in an oven.
But such a large-scale opera-
tion would be too expensive
for individual tubs and sinks.
A quick fix exists. Profes-
sionals can recoat fixtures
using a two-part urethane fin-
ish, consisting of a resin and
catalyst. "The (urethane) coat-
ings are glossy," says Robert
Jones, owner of DreamMaker
Bath & Kitchen, a refinisher in
Roeland Park, Kan. "But they
reflect light differently than
porcelain. The (urethane)
coating almost has a wet
look."
Refinishing paints have
improved in the last 15 years,
says Dan Allen, owner of
Allen's Specialty Coatings in
Kansas City. Before, profes-
sionals and do-it-yourselfers
used more epoxy-based prod-
ucts, which yellowed and
stained easily. "New coatings
work like the anti-graffiti coat-
ings on buses," he says.
However, it often costs less
to replace fixtures than it does
to refinish them. Here's what
to consider:
.Sinks cost $100 to refinish,
about the same price as a new
one. Unless you have a retro
sink you can't part with, it's
best to replace it. You definite-
ly want to replace a kitchen
sink because pots and pans
would quickly ruin a refin-


TIPS
If you have a refinished
surface, don't use:
Abrasive or citrus
cleaners,
Rubber bath mats
inside the tub. Ask
professionals about
installing an anti-slip
surface
Hair dyes
Bath salts or skin
exfoliates
Find a pro:
Word-of-mouth
referrals are best.
In the phone book,
search the categories
of "bathroom remodel-
ing" and "bathtubs
and sinks repair and
refinish."
Before hiring a
contractor, ask for
references and an
estimate.

ished surface.
Tubs cost up to $300 to
refinish inside and out. Mary
Hall of Mission, Kan., recently
updated her bathroom,
installing new tile on the walls
along with a new sink and mir-
ror.
Although it would cost
about the same to replace her
tub, Hall decided to refinish it.
That way she didn't have to
deal with gaps in the flooring.
Another option for tubs
involves covering them with
quarter-inch-thick acrylic,
which can cost about $1,000.
Laminate countertops cost
about $500 to refinish on aver-
age; replacements start at
$1,000.
