to retire

Hanks will hang up his badge and

with Venice Police Department.


Venice Police Chief Jim Hanks has an-
nounced his retirement after spending 30
years with the police department.
Hanks announced his retirement Thursday.
He has been the chief for the past five years
and spent his entire law enforcement career
with Venice.
On more than one occasion, Venice has
been compared to Nlayberry and the police
chief to Andy Griffith.
Hanks takes that as a compliment.
"I like that hometown atmosphere," Hanks
said. "I've read, I've heard them refer to me as
Andy from Mayberry. To me. that's not a slam.
That means I'm doing things right."
Hanks has always said he'd give City
Manager Marty Black at least six months

The Venice Salvation Army is
mobilizing to help Hurricane Ka-
trina victims after the Category 4
storm obliterated coastal cities in
Louisiana and Mississippi.
"I know we will be going down
there," Capt. John Fuller said. "We
are getting the canteen ready, buy-
ing food, supplies. We are taking
sleeping bags because we don't
know what kind of accommoda-


tions, if any, we will have."
A canteen is a mobile kitchen.
Fuller said he is not certain what
day they will be leaving. He said he
has not gotten his orders from the
army's disaster officials. He thinks
he and two other army officials will
be leaving Saturday.
"A lot of the roads into New
Orleans and Biloxi and Gulfport are
totally gone," he said. "We may
have some problems getting into
those'places."
- Fuller said there are 72 canteens


from the army's 15-southern terri-
tory states being readied for ser-
vice. He said Florida has 29 can-
teens.
"We could be down there for up
to 21 days," Fuller said. "We will be
prepared to serve two meals a day,
plus drinks and snacks."
Fuller said part of the logistics
will be finding a suitable ware-
house for the food and supplies.

This has not been a fun
couple of days for SIK Corp-
oration of Sarasota.
On Thursday, SIK owner
Dane Deruiz was denied his
request to reduce $3,600
worth of fines for code viola-
tions at his 401 South Tanmi-
ami Trail lot on Venice island.
That came one day after
Starbucks backed out of
buying the property'to build
a coffee house. Deruiz said
Starbucks changed its mind
on the U.S. 41 Business spot
because it didn't think there
would be enough cus-
tomers.
"Specifically, their com-
ment was you can fire a can-
non shot down the road at
night and not hit anything,"
Deruiz said.
Starbucks is reviewing at
least five other spots in the
Venice area, according to
what Deruiz has heard.


Reports have Starbucks
leasing the former Texaco gas
station at U.S. 41 Bypass and
Center Road, adjoining Stein
Mart, and Office Depot at
Venice Marketplace in Venice.
The 1,800-square-foot store
will be a drive-through with
indoor seating and an out-
door patio.
"We are leasing space to do
a location and the lease has
been executed on the proper-
ty," said Keith Shantz, real
estate manager for Starbucks
Florida, to BUSINEWS! col-
umnist Roger Button.
At this stage Shantz said he
did not have further details,
but it could open in fall 2006.
Shutters
None of the spots under
consideration includes Ven-
ice island, however. Deruiz
said he was told by Starbucks
that it's "too difficult" to build
along U.S. 41 Business.
Starbucks developers do
not believe there are enough


customers on the island to
support their business. A look
at the newer Starbucks loca-
tions reveals the company is
building larger stores, closer
to the 2,000 square feet range.
compared to older locations
around 1,200 square feet,
Deruiz said.
Some developers may ar-
gue with the assessment that
Venice island is not attractive
enough for retailers and rede-
velopment.
The list of pending project
approvals indicates other-
wise. Out of the seven pro-
posals forVenice island await-
ing planning commission
and city council approval,
only two of them include a
retail element.
And even those two pro-
jects The Terraces project
by Venice Company and
Waterfront Business District
by Waterford Companies -
include a strong residential
element with housing over
shops.
The other five projects all
are for condominiums.

SPECIAL 10 THE GONDOLIER SUN

EDITOR'S NOTE: Laurel
Nokomis School Assistant Principal
Melodie Deeds was in New
Orleans as Hurricane Katnna
approached. This is the e-mail she
sent out to friends and family
about evacuating her "second
home."
The ordeal was surreal and
enormously humbling. I feel
compelled to share some of
nm experiences, as they will
stay with me forever.
As most of you know. Larry
(Deeds' husband) and I feel
like New Orleans is our sec-
ond home, and we go over
about five times a year. Once
the mandatory evacuation
was issued on Sunday, noon,
Lanrm and I decided we could
no longer wait to see if our
flight would be leaving at
2:35.
Fortunately, we had a rent-
al car (the rental company did
not charge us to take the car
back to Tampa) and decided
to uy and evacuate.


Our hotel (Wyndham) had
already made arrangements
for guests to stay in the part of
the hotel where they have the
conventions and is the most
secure. The hotel was gra-
cious enough to invite their
staff and their families (for)
refuge. It just so happens
there was an EMS/ENIT con-
venton at the hotel and they
offered to stay and help.
Larry and I said our good-
byes. Everyone was very gra-
cious (that's how they are in
New Orleans) and wished us
well as we decided to evacu-
ate.
As we went down Canal
Street, we watched as city
workers were beginning to
take people over to the
Superdome, where we had
just watched the preseason
game on Friday night be-
tween the Saints and the
Ravens (on the 20-yard line!).
I met a couple of locals at the
game and at that time we
were joking about the storm
and how we could have a hur-
ricane party. After all, I am

What ifa Katrina I


BY HARRY BERRY
CORRESPONDENT

What if Venice gets hit like
Mississippi? What about New
Orleans?
The major damage to
Mississippi was from wind
and storm siirge. Storm surge
comes from wind way off
,shore. The wind rotation
spins a low spot in the surface
of the gulf and.piles the water
in a ridge on the upwind side.
When this ridge runs into
the shallow shore water, it'
makes a monumental wave.
The nice thing about Venice
is that we have a higher ele-
vation and the surge will
drain off quickly.
Our ground is absorbent,
and we have plenty of creeks
and low places to help contain
the water and then let it drain
back to the gulf. If we get a
surge similar to Biloxi, the
water would most likely reach
qut past Border Road. Then it
would,quicdly drain off.
Flooding like New Orleans
is almost impossible here.
New Orleans is lower than.


Correction

Florida Fish and Wildlife offi-,
cials estimate the "dead zone",
in the Gulf of Mexico caused
by red tide could stretch for
2,200 square miles between
Hernando and Sarasota
counties. Because of a re-
orter's error, the incorrect
measurement appeared in
an Aug. 31 Gondolier Sun
story about local inventor
Bob'Rigby.


the gulf and traps the water,
just like a bowl. There is no
way for the water to escape.
Special needs
If you are a person with.
special needs, you need to be
registered' with Sarasota
County's People with Special
Needs program. If you are
registered, in the event of a"
catastrophic event you will
be contacted and offered
special shelter.
To register you can e-mail
psn@0scgov.net and get the
necessary information. If you
don't want to use the com-
puter, call the county at 861-,
5000 and ask for help to sign
up.-
If you are a person without
means of transport to an
emergency shelter, you
should contact the local fire
department or police depart-
ment at the time of emer-
gency and ask for help in
securing a ride.. There is no
policy for this, but if possible
they will help.
Sarasota emergency shel-
ters open: as needed. They
open one in North County,
'one nmid-countyr and one in-
South County. As these shel-
ters fill, more will be opened.
You can call Sarasota County
for a list of shelters.
Code Red
Venice has an emergency
notification system. It is call-
ed Code Red. This is used to
notify you of any emergency
developing.
To register, people may
call (214) 987-5380 Monday
through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m..

tion includes first and last

mary phone ,number, addi-
tional phone numbers op-
tional.
Much of the database has
been supplied to Emergency
Communications Network,
but no one should automati-
cally assume his or her tele-

All businesses should register,
aswell as all individuals who
have unlisted phone num-
bers, those' who have
changed their phone number

Code Red system is a geo-
graphical notification system,
which means street addresses
are needed to select which
telephone numbers will re-
ceive emergency notification,

The system works fine for cel-
lular phones too, but requires'

Venice East in play; Addy's sold


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST

An.increase of 100 percent
in value within six months,
according to offers being
made, is causing a local golf
club to seek its members'
opinion on a sale.
Seven developers have
made offers ranging from $7
million to $10.4 million for
the Venice East Golf Club.
A letter circulated this
month to.the certified share-
holder club members invites
them to consider if this is the
top dollar amount they can
get, what each share's value,
would be after expense de-
ductions and if they want to
sell. Ballots have to be re-
ceived by Sept. 12, when a
decision by at least two-thirds
of the voting membership
will be made.
The 18-hole course on 53
acres is in a prime location at
107 Venice East Blvd., sur-
rounded by residential de-
velopment, with a prime
frontage to Taniami Trail. It
opened in 1960 and has 290
members, of which 258 have
equi in the club.
Annual fees are apparently
the lowest in the area. The
recent heavy rains have pre-
vented play many times


throughout the summer and,
this apparently has had a
detrimental effect on club
finances.
In March of this year,
members rejected an offer of
$5 million from a developer
on the advice of their board
of directors.
Addy's Inn
What will be the future for
another Nokomis and Venice
landmark, which closed re-
cently when ownership
changed?
Addy's Inn Motel was sold
for $2 million. Thq Nokomis
property located in a park
setting at 330 North Tamiami
Trail with 15 cottages and a
home was put up for sale
almost a year ago.
SOwners Mike anid Addy

was originally the 28-year-old

changed the name and per-
sonally managed it for nine
years.
Addy's Inn LLC of Ohio, the
new Ohio owners, Highlands
Management Group Inc. and
JCM1 Development LLC, are a
real estate development and
construction company.
Parmer Rob Lowe, a com-
niercial broker and developer
who moved to Osprey with


his wife and family a year
ago, is working on the project
in Nokomis.
"We're waiting to get coun-
ty approvals and will explore
our options," Lowe said. He
confirmed it will remain
closed until renovations have
been completed, then the
name will be changed.
An option is to convert
and expand the front to
office professional condos
and put parking there, then
convert the rest to residential
condominiums for multi-
family use.
The shuffleboard court is
being replaced with a swim-
ming pool: and additional
landscaping will be done. The
buildings are very clean but
dated, s6 some roofs need
replacing and the kitchens
and batldooms will be reno-
vated. .
A requirement to connect
into the county's sewer sys-.
tem. with lift stations will
cost $250,000, Lowe said.
The inn has been used for
transient rentals, but it may
be converted to a condo-
motel as affordable housing
units.

4A X/I NIFIUNA E ,


Resident wants to save



septic tanks for emergencies


A proposal to preserve decommissioned tanks
has been forwarded to utility officials.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A Phillippi Creek area
property owner's proposal to
preserve about 400 decom-
missioned septic tanks for
post-hurricane emergency
use rather than see them
crushed when sewer lines are
installed has Sarasota County
utility officials scratching
their heads.
"We don't know how to ad-
dress this yet," said Rick
Howell, the county's utilities
general manager. "A meeting
has been set up, with the
health department. There are
state rules that govern the use
of stand-by septic tanks. It
could be a week or two before
we know something."
The county is in the midst
of a 10-year project to remove
about 14,000 septic tanks in
the Phillippi Creek drainage
basin. Homes and businesses
are being hooked up on a
neighborhood-by-neighbor-
hood basis to the publicly
owned utility system..
Roads are being torn up
and underground sewage col-
lection lines installed. When:
work in a neighborhood is
finished, and all the utility
customers are connected, the
pld septic tanks that drained
into the creek are usually-
crushed and badkfilled with
sand.
Conceded
On July 13, Larry Sewell
wrote commission chair Paul
Mercier and suggested that
neighborhoods currently
being retrofitted with "low-
pressure wastewater connec-
tion systems" be allowed to
maintain their septic systems


"in a decommissioned condi-
tion."
The rationale offered by
Sewell is that the electrically
powered sewage collection
systems planned for about
400 homes and businesses
will probably be inoperable
after a hurricane-hits the
county, and the septic tanks
could be reactivated on a
temporary basis.
Health department offi-
cials are understandably con-
cerned that decommission
septic tanks could continue
to contaminated the creek
with pollution. To avoid that
possibility, he has proposed
that decommissioned tanks
be pumped and cleaned.
What Sewell has proposed
is that the county install
valves which would allow the
diversion of sewage into a
septic system under post-
hurricane emergency condi-
tions.
If the county agrees, the
property owners would be
responsible for maintaining
the tanks.
"Some of these neighbor-
hoods are in the DeSoto
Lakes area and there are oth-
.ers right along Phillippi
Creek," Howell said. "I'm not
sure exactly how many septic
tanks we are talking about.
There could be 400 in the
whole region."
Five more years-
The utility division has
embarked on a $121 million
program to replace North
County septic tanks located
along or near Phillippi Creek,
and has a year 2010 target
date to get the job done.
Federal and state grants will
help pay for some of the work.


To help reduce the sewer
hookup cost for county prop-
erty owners, $28 million of
county sales tax revenue has
been pledged to the project.
In addition, lobbyists in
Washington, D.C., and Talla-
hassee have been employed
by the county to pursue
grants.
The county's goal is to ob-
tain $18 million, from Con-
gress and $18 million from
the Florida Legislature. So far,
federal lawmakers have allo-
cated $4.5 million and state
lawmakers $2.5 million, $1
million this year.
Two previous legislative
appropriations were vetoed
by Gov. Jeb Bush.
Politics aside, the project
started several years ago in
what project managers have
designated as Area E, which
includes 586 homes and busi-
nesses in the Oyster Bayarea
south of Bee Ridge Road west
of U.S. 41. More than 540
homes and businesses' have
been hooked up.
Areas A, which includes
the DeSoto Lakes communi-
ty, and F, which is located
south of Bee Ridge Road and
east of U.S. 41, are also nearly-
completed. When they are
finished, another 2,500 cus-
tomers will be hooked up to
central service.
Four more neighborhoods
will soon be affected by con-
struction. They include Sara-
sota Springs and Forest Lakes,
South Gate and Pinecraft.
Collectively, they include
about 3,500 homes and busi-
nesses in what are known as
Areas C, D and K.

COUNTY URGES FUEL CONSERVATION
Sarasota County officials are urging residents to follow fuelconser-.
vation measures to ensure that supplies are available for the hurri-
cane-relief effort in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
County officials stressed that no government requests had been
issued to gas stations to close early. Consumers might, however,
find sporadic closures as individual stations experience shortages.
Sarasota County implemented the following conservation mea-
sures on Thursday:
* Asking employees to consider and eliminate unnecessary trips.
* Car pool whenever possible.
* Use phone and conference calls to conduct meetings to elimi-
nate travel.
- Adjusted upward the thermostats in all county buildings.
In addition, a team was formed to draft a plan for further conser-
vation measures if they became necessary.


weeks, Louisiana and Missis-
sippi power company offi-
cials said.
Insurance experts have
estimated the damage at $25
billion and still counting. If
the estimates hold, that
would make Katrina the most
expensive natural disaster in
U.S. history.
Disaster officials believe it
may be a year or more before
the hundreds of thousands of
displaced people can move
back into their homes. Many
of those homes will have to be
completely rebuilt.


Hurricane Andrew in Flor-
ida in 1992 caused $21 billion
in damages.

advance notice. The chief was
scheduled to retire within the
next two years, but Thursday
was the first time he'd set a
firm date, of March 1, 2006.
A serious car wreck earlier
this spring and two teenage
children prompted Hanks to
go with a date sooner rather
than later.
His oldest daughter, Beth,
is a senior at Venice High and
will graduate in 2006. His son,
Tommy, 13, is a student at
Epiphany Cathedral School.
At 55 years old, Hanks said
he's ready to spend as much
time as possible with his chil-
dren while they're still
around. Both Hanks and his
wife, Susan, are heavily in-
volved in youth activities that
include Venice Little League,
Pop Warner Football and AAU
SVenice Pythons baseball.
Hanks admitted Thursday
that it "hurts" knowing his
daughter will be going away
to college next fall.
I like to have my kids
around," Hanks said. "I like to
have their friends around. ...
There's been times where an
entire cheerleading squad or
Tommy's whole baseball
team is on the front lawn."
His choice
Both Hanks and the city
manager emphasized the
decision to retire now was
made by Hanks, despite crit-
icisms made by a private
consulting group's report,
stalled union negotiations
and other management-
based problems the past
couple of years.
A Matrix Consulting
Group survey revealed that 0
percent of police employees
think the command staff is
innovative and progressive,
and 68 percent rated the
morale as low.
Black has repeatedly said
he supports Hanks, who will
earn $82,500 this year, and
that he shouldn't be blamed
fbr all of VPD's problems.
Many VPD issues go back to
previous administrations,
Black said.

NEW CONTRACT
The city and the Fraternal
Order of Police reached a ten-
tative contract agreement
Thursday for lieutenants and
sergeants. The tentative con-
tract is retroactive to October
2004 and expires in October
2007.
The contract provides for
Venice's five lieutenants and
seven sergeants to be paid
slightly more than their coun-
terparts in North Port and a lit-
tle less than their counterparts
in the city of Sarasota and
Sarasota County. It also pro-
vides that the lieutenants and
sergeants will pay $40 per
month for health insurance
coverage.
The negotiating teams will
meet next week to finalize
language and then go before
the union membership for rat-
ification, followed by approval
by the city council.
This agreement does not
affect the status of the city's
contract with Venice's patrol
officers. Negotiations are
heading-toward mediation,
and a resolution remains
months away.

service and gave much of
that credit to Hanks. Police
charityprograms have led to
more than 1,000 bicycles
being given away to area chil-
dren during the holidays, and
the Shop a Cop program has
helped many students get the
back-to-school supplies they
need.
"Some folks ask, how is
that policing?" Black said.
"That goes back to the heart,'
the point of community po-
'licing."
The city manager will
launch a replacement search
and hopes fo have a nominee
for Venice City Council ap-
proval in four months.
Venice's charter treats both
the police and fire chiefs like.
the four charter officers, leav-
ing employment or termina-
tion up to a majority vote of
council. Black, however, is'
responsible for leading the
search.
Not about arrests
Writing- out tickets and


slapping on handcuffs is not
what the Venice Police De-
partment is all about, accord-
ing to Hanks.
Speeders within reason
get a warning the first time
around, and then a ticket the
second time. On disturbance
calls, communication rather
than brute force must be an
officer's first choice.
"I had an old policeman
tell me along time ago, arrest-
ing someone is a last resort,"
Hanks said. "Something,
somewhere-has failed when
that's your only option.
"We're very lucky where we
live, and that's howwe've tried
to run it."
Hanks will be a civilian
when March rolls around, but
he will remain active with the
city. He plans to help update
and rewrite the city's public
parks regulations and devel-
op new boating laws.
Community' involvement
by police staff, reinstatement
of the school resource officer
atVenice High and creation of
the marine patrol officer pro-
gram are just a few of the
-accomplishments Hanks will
reflect on with pride. Back in
1992, Hanks said he pushed
for the waterways police offi-
cer and recently expanded
the program to a second full-
time boating officer.
On top of that,'Hanks is
most proud of completing a
400-page history book detail-
ing VPD's 80-year history.
Computer discs with the
book and photos will be for
sale later this year, with pro-
ceeds benefiting the Venice
Archives. f
The Hall of Chiefs at police
headquarters, with paintings
of every city chief going, back
to 1926, was created by
Hanks, who's been a Venice
resident since 1964.
Only, don't expect his pic-
ture to go up there. That's a
decision for some other
police chief to make, he said.
"It's been a great 30 years.
It's gone by just like that,"
Hanks said, snapping his fin-
gers.

KATRINAfrom page 1A


from Florida and hurricane
parties are what it's all about!
Little did we know.
I keep wondering about
Dennis. and .his friends.
Hopefully we will see them at
the Saints versus Bucs game
in December.
Back to our departure. We
went down Canal wondering
about the locals who don't
have much: How are they
going to survive? Who will
take care of the elderly? Where
will all those wonderful work-
ers who supply those yummy
beignets go? I began to pray
for their safety and well-
being.
The French Quarter was all
boarded up with the excep-
tion of a few bars and restau-
rants. It looked as if "voodoo"
was creeping in.
We got on I-10 and imme-
diately hit gridlock. We were
among the last 800,000 who
were evacuating. So we got in
the left lane of the interstate,
which eventually got us to the'
edit for Highway 90, thinking
maybe we could make some
headway over there. We'
inched our way and ended up
in gridlock again.
I could feel the acid in my
stomach rising. I was getting
scared. I didn't want to say
anything to Larry. I wanted to
-put up a brave front but I
couldn't help wondering if we
were were going to get stuck
on the highway as Katrina
approached. Also, what were
we going to do for gas?
People were lined up next
to us. We all just stared at each
other, and I knew we were all
thinking the same thing: Are
we going to make it? Then we
found gas at the Qwik Pik.
The two boys working in
there said they would stay
open as long as they could.
They became our heroes. We
grabbed a bag of peanuts and


water and were on our way
again, inching our way to
what were hoping was safety.
As we passed along the
way, I.looked at the dogs in
the heat in their crates, wor-
ried for them, it was so hot. I
hope they made it alive.
It is now 6:30 p.m. We have
made it to Ocean Springs and
the bridge is out, so we have
been diverted back to I-10,
back into the cesspool of grid-
lock. I thought I was going to
throw up.
Every once in a while my
sisters would call, frantically
trying to find back roads for
us to try and go on. Nothing
worked. We continued to
press on, and now it is start-
ing to get dark.
I'm listening.to Escambia
County (Pensacola) 'saying
they will shut the bridges
down at 11:30 p.m. I had a
new mission to get to the
bridge before 11:30.
So we kept going, and so
did everyone else. The stream
of cars became a highway city
and I began to recognize faces
as we would stop at the rest
areas together.
We became close strangers
and we immediately bonded.


We all would smile and ask
where each was headed. We
always wished each other
good luck and got back on to
the highway.
The doom and gloom on
the radio was beginning to be.
too much. We finally found a
station that was playing some
70s music and for a while,
happy times were once again.
The story ends here. We hit
the Escambia bridge at 8:38.
p.m. We made it.,
Most of the evacuees got
off in Pensacola. They were
offering refuge to the "road
people" in the civic center.
I hit the gas pedal and flew
down the interstate to Talla-
hassee.
We stopped to rest at 1:30
a.m. and got home around 2
p.m. on Monday.
All of your thoughts and
prayers were answered, and I
am so incredibly grateful.
When they ask for your
help with the disaster relief,
please consider the faces I
saw as we left and give what-
ever you can. I feel like they
are family
Thanks for letting me
share.

Sprague, Rams roll into Venice


Riverview vs. Venice rivalry
features smashmouth football at its best.


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR'


Hall, Cristiani

and Bear excel

in Kentucky

Kentucky may be best
known for thoroughbred rac-
ing, awesome college hoops
and potent moonshine, but
the sport of football is alive
and well in, the "Bluegrass
State."
In fact, three excellent
Venice High football players
from recent years have chosen
to continue their gridiron
careers in Kentucky.
All three are slated to start
for their respective schools
this year. All three colleges
will open their seasons this
weekend.
Following is a look at the
trio:
PHIL HALL A 2001
Venice High grad who played
a big role on the state champ-
ionship team, Hall is now a
senior at Murray State.
For the first time in his
Racer career, Hall enters the
season as a starter. The 6-3,
275-pounder will start at left
tackle. Murray State opens
its season Saturday night at
Mississippi State.
Hall, who wears No. 75,
did start a few games last year
when first-stringer Laquentin
Irvin went down with an
injury.
Hall, who also captured a
state wrestling championship
at VHS, played defense his
first two years at Murray
State.
Murray State has nearly all
of its starters back on offense,
but conversely lost almost all
of its defensive starters.
Tile Racers finished 7-4 last
year and tied forsecond at 6-2
in the Ohib Valley Conference.
MARK CRISTIANI Big
Mark is a 2003 Venice High
grad who played as a true'
freshman at Eastern Kentucky
University.
Cristiani evolved into a
starter at defensive tackle as a
,sophomore and now is one
of the team leaders on the
Colonels.
Cristiani, who wears No.70
and is 'listed at 5-11, .275
pounds, was voted by his
teammates as the defensive
captain. He is the lone re-
turning defensive lineman
for the Colonels.
Eastern Kentucky, which
plays in the Ohio Valley Con-
ference, was 6-5 overall last
year. The Colonels will open
the season Saturday night
against Appalachian State.
Cristiani will face a couple
of former teammates this
season. On Sept. 10, Eastern
Kentucky will play Western
Kentucky:. Former, Indian
standout Dusty Bear is on the
Hilltoppers. On Nov. 5,
Eastern Kentucky will play
Phil Hall and Murray State.
Since Hall plays offensive
tackle and Cristiani defensive
tackle, the two could square
off face-to-face.,
DUSTY BEAR Bear, a
2004 Venice High grad, is list-
ed No. 1 on the depth chart
at nose tackle for Western
Kentucky University.
Bear played in 11 of the
Hilltoppers' games as a true
freshman last year arid ap-
pears to be ready to come
into his own this year. Wear-
ing No. 53, Bear is listed at
6-3, 265 pounds.
Western Kentucky, which
was 9-3 overall and a second-
place 6-1 in the Gateway last
year,, opened its: season
Thursday night against West
Virginia Tech.
The Hilltoppers will play.
Eastern Kentucky and Mark
Cristiani on Sept. 10.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Some say he's as old as
the hills. Others call him the
"Grand Wizard" of area foot-
ball coaches. Still others say
things we can't print.
His track record speaks for
itself -.24 years, a 182-77
record, two state finals.
Last year's improbable
run to the state semifinals
pumped new life into old
school John Sprague and the
Riverview High program.
"Two years ago, we were
3-7," Sprague recalled. "It
was our first' losing season
since '91."


The Rams will invade
Powell-Davis Stadium at 7:30
p.m. Friday to take on Nick
Coleman's Venice Indians.
The game will feature
strong line play and hard-
hitting defenses. It will be
smashmouth football at its
best.
Through the years, River-
view has dominated the ser-
ies, but Venice has held its
own of late. Coleman is 3-3
against Sprague.
Last year, Riverview played
Venice late in the season. The
Rams were beginning a run
that would take them, deep
into the playoffs. Riverview
took it to the Indians, 28-14.


Riverview went on to de-
feat previously, unbeaten
Southeast before, shocking.
Naples in the opening round
of the playoffs. The Rams
then. defeated Boca Ciega
before avenging an earlier
loss to Sarasota. St. Thomas-

Still, what a fine ride it
was. Riverview finished 10-3.

ing. We missed two field
goals. We have to get a lot
better."
Coleman is thinking the
same thing about his Indians.
"We have to win the field
position battle," he said. "We
can't turn the ball over."
Venice was at the wrong
end of the field seemingly
the entire game against
touted Lakeland. There were
a, few key turnovers that
helped the Dreadnaughts'
cause.
When Sprague looks at
Venice, he might think he's
looking into a mirror.
"We're very similar,"
Sprague said. "Venice is tough
defensively. Their offense is
good; too."
Venice's "0" did not pro-
duce any points against


Lakeland.
"I think Lakeland had
something to do with it,"
Sprague said. "They played
a good team. That's a good
Venice team, too."
Coleman is impressed
with Riverview the same.
"They're real physical,"
he said. "They're coached
well and have great condi-
tioning. They.have a good
quarterback and a running
back that's hard to bring
down."
"It's a good, honest rival-
ry," Sprague said. "We're one
of their best gates."

varsity golf team indoors at
Jacaranda West Country Club
for more than an hour.
As the storm subsided, the
team found' even tougher
competition from Sarasota
High and Cardinal Mooney
High School.
However, the Indians
fought through poor condi-
tions and some tough breaks
to finish third in their first
home match of the season.
Sarasota, a district oppo-
nent and qualifier in last
year's state meet won the
match with a combined score
of 145. Cardinal Mooney
took second with a 150 and
the Indians finished third
coming in at 153, Chris
Kennedy of Cardinal Mooney
had the low score of the
match.with a round of 33.
The young Indians, who
started three freshmen in their
group of six, were led by fresh-
man Billy Stevens, who fin-
ished the round with a 37. "I hit
every fairway and it was nice
to birdie the 17th, but I was
looking to birdie the 18th too
to come in at 36," he said.

junior, and freshmen Eric

Cash best bet for




hurricane victims


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Floridians, especially vic-
tims of Hurricane Charley,
may want to rush to Alabama,
Mississippi or Louisiana to
help in the relief and recovery
efforts in the wake of Hur-
ricane Katrina, but local offi-
cials are cautioning people
who live outside the disaster
zone to step back and let the
professionals do their job.
What people can do right
now is donate cash to a vari-
ety of charitable organiza-
tions that are sending their
own relief crews.
Volunteer agencies pro-vide
a wide variety of services after
disasters, such as cleanup,
child care, housing repair, crisis
counseling, shelter and food.
People who do decide to
donate need to make sure
they donate to the organiza-
tion they want and to make
contact themselves, either by
phone, mail or the Web.
Following nearly every dis-
aster, phone scammers will
prey on the elderly and those
who are anxious to help.


there is a blood shortage for
all types throughout the area,
a spokeswoman said.
A plea went out for air-
boats, and people to drive
them, to help with the emer-
gency response in Louisiana
and Mississippi.
According to a statement
from the Florida Airboat
Association, the Louisiana
Department of Emergency
Management has urgently
requested 300 *irboats and
swamp buggies to assist in
high-water rescues.
Lauren Brown, a spokes-
man for the association, said
search and rescue, law en-
forcement patrols and recov-
ery are part of this mission.
"Those responding can
expect 10 days of 18-hour
shifts initially under adverse
conditions," an association
report stated.
Each boat and operator
must carry an ample supply
of fuel, food, drinking water
and personal-hygiene items.
Consideration should be
given to navigational equip-
ment including GPS, maps,
two-way radio communica-


LOCAL RELIEF EFFORTS
DIOCESE HELPING IN DISASTER RELIEF
The Diocese of Venice is joining in solidarity with the 195
Catholic dioceses throughout the United States who are taking up
collections in their parishes to help those affected by Hurricane
Katrina.
Bishop John Nevins asked all parishes in the Venice Diocese to
take up the collection the weekend of Sept. 10-11. The monies will
be funneled through Catholic Charities USA.
Catholic schools in the Diocese of Venice are welcoming
displaced elementary and high school students taking refuge in
Southwest Florida from Hurricane Katrina. Backpacks and school
supplies will be provided.
Additionally, efforts are being made through parishes and
schools to locate housing for these students and their families. For
more information call Rosemary Bratton, superintendent of

Students see the point of fencing


A demonstration of the sport at the Student
Leadership Academy had its pupils on the edge of
their seats.


CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER

Students at the Student
Leadership Academy in Ven-
ice peered anxiously out their
classroom windows, trying to
get a glimpse of what one
teacher called "the big kids."
When the bell rang, students
rushed into the cafeteria and
eagerly awaited their lunch-
time show.


Fencing coach John Luper, who is ranked 11th in the United
States, answers questions abput his sport at Student
Leadership Academy Wednesday. :. .


"I see your point."


Swashbuckling
Luper made references to
Pirates of the Caribbean and
other sword-fighting films to
give the students something
to relate to.
When the demonstration
began, kids slid to the edges
of their seats, and with every
swish of the weapons cheers
of "whoa" and "cool" could be
heard from the audience.
The four demonstrators


Members of the Sarasota wasted no time getting into'


SLA, HURRICANE RELIEF PROJECT
SLA is partnering with Gulf Coast Community Foundation of
Venice to raise funds for hurricane relief. The organizational meet-
ing for the project will be held at the school, 200 E. Field Ave., on
Sat., Sept 3, at 9 a.m. Anyone interested in helping is invited to
attend. Doug O'Connell, dean of students, said the fund-raising
effort will begin after the meeting, with students in their SLA or
Civil Air Patrol uniforms, soliciting funds accompanied by adults.


Fencing Academy were suit-
ing up to give the kids a 20-
minute fencing demonstra-
tion.
"You aren't going to hurt
anybody, are you?" Doug
O 'Connell, dean of students,
joked while the four fencers
gottheir gear together.
Simon DinD and Tohn Bork,
from Riverview High School,
Samantha Weber, from the
Sarasota Military Academy,
and coach John Luper, who is,
a recent graduate of Sarasota
Military. Academy, came to
the charter middle school on
Wednesday to try to get'kids
interested in fencing.
Luper, who is ranked 11th
in the United States, started
out by giving them a quick
overview of the weapons and
rules of the sport.
S"The key to fencing is being
creative," Luper1 explained.
"Otherwise your opponent
will learn your techniques,
anticipate your moves and
beat you."


the meat of their show.: Kids
laughed and cheered while


the fencers hopped around
the lunchroom and scored
point after point by striking
their opponent with their
blade.
At the end.of the demon-
stration, Luper took questions
from the audience while the
others passed around the
epees to allow the students to
feel their weight. Many of the
students 'were surprised at
how light they were.
The students had a bundle
of questions for the fencers.
Do you have protection under
your suit? Weber answered
this question by lifting her
suit and showing the stud-
ents her protective gear. Is
height an advantage? No,
said Bork, who is very tall.
Sometimes it pays to be
shorter .so that you can
maneuver faster.
Can you get hurt?
"It's just like any sport,"
Luper told them. "You're tak-
ing a risk."

Looking for more
Shortly after the question-
and-answer portion of the
demonstration ended, the


end-of-lunch bell rang and a
rumble of "awws" came from
the audience as students
unhappily headed back to
class.
As they left, Chris Ydden,
who tagged along with the
fencing bunch to help out,
passed out Sarasota Fencing
Academy information to any
student who was interested.
Still in awe of the demon-
stration they'd just seen,
many of the students took
advantage of the opportunity
and grabbed a flier.
According to Luper, there
are. about 300 fencers in
Sarasota and neighboring
counties and the Sarasota
Fencing Academy is looking
to recruit more.
The academy begins for
the year on Wednesday, Sept.
14. The price is $50 a month
and is open to all age groups
and skill levels.

Don't open the door to paving the Everglades


Sep. TrudiWilliams, R-Fort Myers, is sur-
prised at the media reaction to a bill she
shepherded through the Legislature this
spring. Williams defends the bill's intent as
simplifying bureaucratic red tape. Others -
including Miami Herald columnist Carl
Hiaasen see it as another attempt by
developers to abuse state wetlands.
SHB 759 has been scrutinized by many. An
amendment tacked onto the original bill
lowered the bonds and insurance required
from phosphate companies to cover the
clean-up of any accidents related to mining
and processing. That amendment which
environmentalists railed against was
sponsored by Sen. Paula Dockery, R-Bartow.
According to Williams, the intent of her
bill was to get the Florida Department of


Environmental Protection and the Army. tion of rubber stamping permits whether
Corps of Engineers to come to an agreement for a strip mall or phosphate mining. The
on language in permit applications for Army Corps is not much better. According to

That is a big hurdle."
Smith said that all decisions would.ulti-

Jacksonville Corps office in this case.
. Williams still claims the bill is misunder-
stood. She says one of the problems might be
that Frank M\atthews, a lobbyist for the
Florida Home Builders Association, helped
write the bill.
"I told FrankwhatI wanted and asked him
to put it in legalese for me," Williams said.
Right. \e thought that's what legislators
have staffs for.
SWhateverWilliams' intent was, we need to
keep a close eye on both the DEP and Army
Corps in hopes their performance will
improve.

If you get a chance to tour a
factory or business, grab it.
--I-guess m.N interest comes
from the time some of us high
school seniors were chosen to
tour the General Electric
Plant in Schenectady, N.Y.
Later, the book, "Watch It
Made in the U.S.A: A Visitor's
Guide to the Companies That
Make Your Favorite Pro-
ducts." guided my family and
me to factories across the
country. (It is available in the
Venicelibrary.)
We have toured Ben and
Jerry's in Vermont and Toyota
in Tennessee, both of which
seemed to make conditions
:as good as possible for their
workers.
: We watched workers make
pretzels in Pennsylvania, air-
planes at Boeingf in Wash-
ington, candy in Canada,
Colorado and Pennsylvania.
(That taught us something
about extremes in ,cleanli-
ness.)
We have stooped through a
defunct coal mine and gazed
into the depths of an open-pit
gold mine.
Probably the worst of all,
but most memorable, was die
Sardine factory in Maine that
our family toured one sum-
mer day many years ago.
There, the women -- all
women stood one behind
the other at their cutting table
Sas the sardines came by on a
conveyer belt to their right.
They could not sit on a stool.
iThey could not talk. to each
other.
Fingers were bandaged
where the knife had slipped
,as they beheaded, de-tailed
and gutted' the little fish and
finallyy fitted them into the
can;
SThe floor manager strode
back and forth along the line
to make sure the women
worked fast enough so, the
fish would not pile up at the
Send of the belt.
Simon Legree came to
mind.


As we went down the stairs
in order to exit, there was a
sign on the wall that we can
not remember exactly. But the
consensus in our family is
that it said, if you workers
. have something to complain,
about, you don't have to work
here. Also, the recollection
was that it was much more
vulgar, nasty and directed
against women.
Most companies, can not
afford huge benefits for their
workers, but they can respect
them..
That is why, when I recent-
ly heard a radio call-in host
exclaim, "I can't stand.
unions!" I knew he never
worked in a sardine factoryor
a coal mine.
He ignored the fact that tie
unions fought for the eight-
hour day, overtime pay, safe
working conditions, fair pro-
motiois. He only stressed
that the top officials were
-overpaid and that the unions
were corrupt.
Probably some top union
officials are overpaid and
some are corrupt, just as
some CEOs :areoverpaid -
and overpaid much more
than union officials and
some (Enron and Worldcom)
are'corrupt.
Three years after that
General Electric trip, a college
acquaintance told me how it
was practically a custom at
GE to fire an employee just
before retirement.
Can a single employee
fight against such a practice?
No.
And so on this Labor Day
weekend, I give a thank-you
to all die workers who carry
on day in and day out.
Anida thank-you to the
companies, with or without a
union, that respect their
workers by giving, them.the
best working conditions con-
sistent with a reasonable
profit for the shareholders.
And a thank-you to the
labor unions that advocate on
behalf of the workers.
Our Work shapes us and
our families. Our businesses
create a milieu, a culture, and
for better or for worse we live
in-it.
SThe better it is for the
workers, the better it is for the
companies and our society.
We all gain by this.

It's time to shut up and pitch in


Editor:
Whiners and complainers in Venice seem to have forgotten
last summer and not even considered a Katrina as they gripe
about tall grass, unkempt properties, TV schedules, newspaper,
deliver schedules, senior drivers, junior drivers, tourists, air-
ports, skateboarders, pets, the heat, the price of gas ..,.let's not
forget red tide.

I am not a Dobmocrat, although I once believed; I am not a,
Republican anymore, either. I think I'm a Libertarian, but am
not quite sure what that is. I am no longer a Methodist.
Why divulge? I am anAmerican who loves the basic ideals of
this nation. I am relatively free.
Our fellow Americans are in dire straits and we must, set
aside pettiness aid selfishness in order to save lives other than
our own. Katrina was misjudged up to a point and hurricane
season has yet further life.
The United States of America has never been in similar con-
ditionbefore. Nature, war, economics ....
Are we still one republic? I think so. Americans are the great-
est, most resilient people on the face of this Earth. Realize that
major change is upon us and'do good, or at least the best you
can.
I know, by God, y'all know what I'm talking' 'bout!'

Reaping what
Reagan sowed
Editor:
.We had no business going
into Iraq. .
The urgent reasons for
going to war were false. The
rush to war was so poorly
planned in the use of men
and equipment that we are
now paying an unnecessary
price in the lives of our troops.
Having said that, there is
nO way we can now leave Iraq
or give a date for leaving.
'I know, the administration
points to Saddam's use of
WMD against Iran and the
Kurds. That was, during the
Reagan years, and it did not
stop President Reagan from
sending Donald Rumsfeld on


a friendship mission to Iraq.
There is a picture of Mr.
Rumsfeld shaking hands with
Saddam that makes me sick
every time I see it.
Saddam's attacking and
killing men on the USS Stark
also did not bother Mr.
Reagan's quest for friendship
with that beast. The first
President Bush never did a
thing ,to stop Saddam when
he was engaged in the mass
killing of Shiites in 1991.
With all the young pro-war
men and women who were in
Crawford on Saturday, Aug.
27, the military missed a good
chance to meet their enlist-
ment needs.
We know these young peo-.
ple can wave a flag to defend

Investors still
waiting for profits
Editor:
Greg Martin's fine article
on viaticals was very good,
but some important informa-
tion that is critical regarding
viaticals was omitted.
I had to visit' Mutual,
Benefit Corp.'s offices four
times to obtain information
on my "viator." After hours of
waiting, I was told they would
not find him .
'In my second visit to their
Fort Lauderdale office -
again a long wait Iwas told
he was found but would not
cooperate. This means he,
refused to give any informa-
tion about himself or his
health.
Please note that in 1997 the
doctor, who is now in prison,
documented that he had six
to nine months to live. Wow,
sounded like a safe invest-
ment.
.So the statement by the
sales representative that "no-
body loses money" becomes ,
quite interesting. This person
could be alive and healthy; he
has insurance monies and
MBC has its money and the
agent has his commission. So,
as a senior citizen, getting up
there in years and life ex-
pectancy, the above state-
meit becomes ludicrous.
Now, I am not an attorney,
but when a contract is en-
tered into and one of the par-
ties does nothonor their"


considerable needed monies
and the agent is trying to sell
his Elvis property (purchased
recently for $1.25 million) for
$2.5 million. Added to ap-
proximately $2.5 million on
viatcal sales tidy little
sums of monies, eh?
Dear readers. .once again I
urge everyone to run and hide
when you hear about abnor-
mal profits. When an adver-
tisement guarantees safety,
question whose safety the

to college and the newspaper
was a victim of the budget
cut. Although I stopped my
subscription, I still read the
Gondolier Sun.
About three years ago, I got
a solicitation call about a
Gondolier Sun delivery sub-
scription, so I said yes.
It took a while for it to start,
so I called. I got a paper deliv-
ered and then I didn't know if
they missed me or if someone
may have picked the paper
up from my yard.
When I called and they
said my paper would be out, a


supervisor delivered it in a
very bad mood, telling me she
had to drive from North Port,
but not telling me why.
No more papers came and
my calls to the paper to sever-
al people ended with the ver-
ification by Mr. Vedder that
the person who has been on
this route a long time refused
to deliver. There wasn't really
a reason given, just that he
would not deliver and he was
a longtime and loyal employ-
ee.
Even though I was not
happy and very upset, I just
stopped buying the Gondolier
Sun.
Within the next year,
Laurel Civic Association's
Homework Plus Afterschool
Program got an invitation
from the Gondolier Sun to at-
tend a Newspapers in School
meeting. Since I'd been trying
unsuccessfully to get a news-
paper subscription donated
by any local paper, I attended
the meeting.
During the meeting when
they said the papers would be
delivered, I didn't want to
embarrass Mr. Vedder, so I
didn't ask the obvious ques-
tion until after the meeting: If
the papers are delivered, then
how are we going to get ours?
He said not to worry about it,
he would take care of it.
I don't know who, but
somebody does deliver the
Newspapers in School to-the
Laurel Community Center.
Now, in the last 2 1/2 or so
years I have had some heated
conversations with the peo-
ple who keep calling me
about a delivery subscription.
I talked to Mr. Vedder at least
twice about taking my name
off their list. I've asked to
speak with the supervisor
when they call and have told
her on more than one occa-


sion to take me off their list.
One conversation went
like this: I'm calling from the
blah, blah, blah, blah. I said,
you don't deliver in my neigh-
borhood. She said, oh, where
do you live? I told her my
address. She said I'm sure we
deliver there. I said, ask your
supervisor. She came back to
the line and said, I'm sorry we
don't deliver in that area. So
again, I asked them not to call
me anymore.
Well, guess who called me
again on Friday. You got it.
Miss Foster can pat herself
on the back for one thing:'She
gave the reason in her letter
as to why the carrier she is
referring to wouldn't deliver
anymore. But was this or
these incidents reported to
the police? And by the way,
her letter is the first time any-
body has said why the
Gondolier Sun won't deliver.
When I had a subscription,
it was always mailed to me by
my request. But please excuse
me for not being so overjoyed
about having someone offer
me home delivery, then stop.
it without a real explanation.
The present editor doesn't
even know how many phone
calls have been made in the
last three years concerning
this matter. But he does know
that the Gondolier Sun does
not have delivery on my
street.
My answer to anyone who
is in a situation that is not safe
or normal, please let law
enforcement know about it.
When that happens, maybe
situations that are not normal
or OK anywhere else won't be
seen as normal or OK in my
neighborhood either.

No stopping march toward prosperity


Waterfront support. Many callers purport to represent the
majority when they convey their feelings about the proposed
waterfront rezoning issue. The editor and many are obviously
opposed to the project. However, to say they represent the
pilse of the community is insulting. I attended the city council
meeting where Mike Miller presented the project and listened
objectively to both sides. My take was that the majority, both
speakers and audience, were in favor of the project. The per-
sonal attacks on Mike Miller are certainly unfounded. He and
-his wife, Georgia, are treasures of this community. They both
give up countless hours of personal time and give financially
freely. Today an article celebrated a $100,000 gift to USF from
the Millers, and they made a huge donation to the newYMCA.
When was the last time you readers donated time or money to
the community rather than complain about it? Venice is going
to change. You ownhomes in a beautiful island community
and the word is out. You can't stop the march toward prosperi-
ty, nor should you want to. We need a first-class hotel with
meeting facilities to attract the tourists that fuel our economy
and enable us to recruit professionals we need to serve our
business, legal and health-care needs.


Not Italy. About the ARB
wanting everything Italian -
have they ever been to Italy? I
have. I see nothing to remind
me of Italy in your town of
Venice. That is the least thing
you should be so crazy about
and pushing all the time on
everything.
Condo hotel. I wish J.J. An-
drews' articles in the Gondo-
lier Sun would start referring
to Mr. Miller's condo hotel as
a condo hotel instead of a
seven-story, 140-room hotel.
It's condos privately own-
ed, .140 rooms that will be
leased daily, weekly, monthly,
yearly or lived in by the condo
owners. Quit referring to it as
a hotel.
Get facts straight. About
the article on Ed Martin he
needs to get his facts straight
regarding the property and
the south bridge. The proper-
ty is not owned by Mike Mil-
ler. He may have all the acco-
lades you gave him as being
on the board of a science-
related Fortune 500 company,
but he sure didn't bother to
check his facts there. And,
there are numerous other
articles in the Gondolier Sun
that don't have their facts
straight. I don't like,the per-
sonal attacks either.

are for the aftermath of a
strong hurricane. One area
where we could do more
would be to remove trees that
have been allowed to grow
next to or running through
the power line area. We spend
millions for palm trees and to
restore historic homes, but
very little to prepare for the
hurricanes. I hope you give
this some serious thought.
I love it. I wanted you to
know I love your TV guide. I've
discovered new channels and
different things to watch. I'im
getting a little sick of people
knocking it. Whoever made it
knew what they were doing
and did it right. If you can't
read the print, get glasses.
Little League money. Ven-
ice Little League holds a
meeting the first Wednesday
of every month and it is


announced in the Gondolier
Sun. Anyone can attend and
members are encouraged,
but must have better things to
do, and then question what
goes on at the meetings. Every
month the budget is present-
ed and shows exactly where
the money goes $110 per
player hardly covers the cost
to run a league. There's insur-
ance for everyone. Yes, we do
supply the balls, but also all
the other equipment and uni-
forms. I know yotir son got
them. We also payto maintain
the fields and keep them safe.
I have never heard of an end-
of-the-year party, and I've
been doing this six years.
Venice Little League does pay
its electric bills, about $650
per month. Now,.paying the
county to use its lights is
another issue, which has been
resolved, so I wish you would
get your facts straight. The
next meeting is the first
Wednesday in September and
I suggest you come, but I
won't wait for you.
An abomination. Your new
TV guide is an abomination.
Go back to the one that was
good. I've been a subscriber
for 20 years; please heed this
request.
Wrecked. I thought the
property they cleared out and
put those condos on, across
the street from the softball
field, would have been an
excellent place for a skate
park. It doesn't do any good
though, because Waterford
put condos in there and
wrecked it.

Phase III of Venice Commons brings additional businesses


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS


Phase III of the Venice
Commons Shopping Center
on East Venice Avenue will
bring expansion.
Rick Cavalieri, informa-
tion manager for owner
Primerica, confirmed there
are three projects. On the
eastern end of the existing
center there is to be a free-
standing 14,800-square-foot
retail building for one large
retailer, or sub-divided for
three users. On a 3-acre lot
near the Mobil station there
are to be five 5,000-square-
foot office condos for profes-
sional and medical offices.
Facing Pinebrook Road there
will be 8,400-square feet for
local retail services, and
unconfirmed reservations are
being held for small restau-,
rants and soft goods:
New challenges
for golfers
Following the very wet
summer, members of Venice
East Golf Club have under-
taken major course projects
in readiness for the season,


'starting with lower rates in
September. Six greens on the
50-plus-acre course have
been torn down, rebuilt with
new contours and reseeded,
creating new challenges, ac-
cording to Louis Corvo, pub-
licity manager.
There is now more than
200 feet of tee space for the
driving range, confirmed club
"president Frank Mack, who
said, "It's been a bad rainy
season and the course had to
be closed almost every day in
June."
The driving range is locat-
ed on Tamiami Trail and.the
clubhouse on Venice Avenue
East, SouthVenice.
Dove returns to Venice
There is a new bird in town
making a lot of sweet music.
The Dove radio station,
formerly on 92.1 until the for-
mat changed a few years ago,
has returned with a new
Venice license on 1320 AM.
Station Manager Dave Har-
rell, with 40 years' radio expe-
rience mostly with The Dove,
started in' the 60s from its'
original broadcasting loca-
tion in Bradenton.
Until two years ago this
popular easy-music station
broadcast from a tower near
interstate, but now it operates
with five other Clear Channel
stations on state-of-the-art
equipment from the North
Sarasota location.
Harrell, determined to get
back the old Dove Radio au-
dience, said, "Basically 132Q


AM is about music, not a lot
of chatter."
He does the morning show
and colleagues operate the
other hours. Sunday morn-
ings will feature his own big-
band brunch with Glenn
Miller, Artie Shaw and others.
Nokomis marina
changing
With the scarcity of dock-
ing for boats, LCA Devel-
opment of Orlando, which
recently acquired Gulf Har-
bor Marina in Nokomis is
offering rackominiums or
"boat condos.".
There are two large, inside
storage facilities located on
the east side of the Intra-
coastal Waterway by the
Albee Road bridge near No-
komis Beach.
"We have had lots of in-
quiries, 30-40 each day since
announcing the project, and
initially we are working with
the current users" said Tony
Simpson ofWagner Realty.
The project is for boat
owners to purchase their own
space, similar to residential
condominiums, on secured
pricing including a shared fee
for general space all of which
would give them occupation-
al security.
Emergency hurricane
supplies service
Most contractors cannot
get to people quickly enough
when a big'storm is coming.
because people do not call in
orders in advance, said
.George Huhn, who recently


set up Venice Emergency
Hurricane Supplies.
His crew measures up win-
dows, obtains the wood and
pre-cuts it at customers'
homes for storage in their
garage. Using special spring-
loaded clips around the win-
dow for easy fitting and quick
release ensures the plywood
covers simply push into place
within the window sill.
The wood screening is
rated at 120 mph and can be
fitted to sliding doors, provid-
ing a flush surface avoiding
wind penetration.
Huhn has been doing sim-
ilar, work on his tenants',
storefronts and .:recently
decided to expand to residen-'
tial
"Ninety percent of my cus-
tomers are older people who
cannot do the installation on
their own, so my team, in the
event of a likely hurricane
approaching this area, installs
the covers, then brings in all
projectile items," said Huhn.
For details, call 224-8686.
Helping locate survivors
The increasing concern for
information on the survivors
'of Hurricane Katrina has cre-
ated much extra concern for
company personnel employ-
ed by A Better Solution of
Venice.
'A new extension of our
service has become trying to
assist a lot of our clients who
have families in the flood-
stricken areas make contact,"
said owner Carol Binrette-
Snodgrass.


Blood bank moving
The blood bank is moving
to the island later this year.
"We feel like it will better
serve donors and the Venice
Regional Medical. Center,"
said BarbaraWinkler; donor
development supervisor of
Florida's Blood Banks.
For sometime it has oper-
ated from Galleria Plaza near
the British Open Pub on
Tamiami Trail in South Ven-
ice. PatrickJaehne, Waterford
Leasing Realtor, confirmed a
build-out had to be undertak-
en for the new location at the
Tandem Center on U.S. 41
Business, and it was hoped
the transition would take
place in November.
Plans are to increase from
the current three-day opera-
tion to Tu6sday through Sat-
urday service at the new loca-
tion, confirmed Winkler.
Blood from the bank is also
sent to a regional distribution
hub in Lee County for use in
Englewood and three Char-
lotte County hospitals.
Good or bad, they're back
That's the message from
Kay Martellino who, together
with longtime friends Nancy
and Jim Champlin, recently
acquired Ophelia's Pasta
House in the Nokomis Village
Shops on Laurel Road.
In the 1990s they operated
Althea's on West Miami Ave-
nue for several years before
selling it to Greg and Diane
Silvia. Moving north to Rhode
Island, Martellino ran the
Smokehouse Cafe while her


colleagues opened Champ-
Slin's Restaurant. But the sand,
sea, sun and'many friends
encouraged them to return to
Florida and, wanting to con-
tinue in their fun-loving busi-'
ness, they have taken over
Ophelia's.
"Just tell everyone, good or
bad they're back," said an ex-
cited Martinello as she de-
scribed how they are enlarg-
ing the dinner cuisine to in-
clude an international menu,
even'fish and chips. In addi-
tion they have opened for
lunch from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.,
with a new menu for both
busy or relaxing customers.
Teddy Bear Tea Paises
Two years ago they made a
sweeping change in careers
when they opened Chocolate
Creations after operating a
preschool for 24 kids in New
York. Twelve months ago they
decided to move to Florida,
and recently; they opened
Cocoa Cafe, near Appliance
Depot at 859 U.S. 41 Bypass.
Partners Irene Devlin from
Queens and Karen Scochoz-
za from Yonkers are making
their coffee pastries and full-
service ice cream bar a fami-
ly-oriented environment.
SComing up shortly will be
their first Venice Teddy Bear
Tea Party, when kids, with
their parents, can bring along
their teddies to participate in
a parade, then enjoy tea,
scones and finger sandwich-
es. They will be making
chocolate edible bouquets
and seasonal gifts.


Fast food workers in high demand throughout area


BY DAN MEARNS
BUSINESS EDITOR

"You want fries with that?"
The question has become
an American cultural cliche, a
put-down assigned to some-
one working at a fast-food
joint, the very bottom of the
job chain. It's like being called
a "soda jerk," for those old
enough to remember such a
thing.'
Nevertheless, fast-food
restaurant jobs have been a
staple of the American labor
scene for nearly five decades.
These low-paying some
would say dead-end,- jobs
have provided a first-work
experience for millions of
young people, an employ-
ment opportunity for non-
skilled and under-educated
laborers and a means for
older workers to stay viable
and make money.
In June, the labor and hos-
pitality industry in Florida
added 33,800 jobs, an in-
crease of 3.9 percent over the
same month hi 2004, accord-
ing to the Florida Agency for


Workforce Innovation. Em-
ployment in the industry has
shown over-the-year increas-
es every month since June of
2002, the agency said.
The segment of the indus-
try that includes fast-food
restaurants added 27,000 jobs
in from June 2004 to June
2005. This segment account-
ed for nearly 80 percent of the
growth in the leisure and hos-
pitality industry.
Nationally, food and bev-
erage serving and related
workers held 6.5 million jobs
in. 2002, according to U.S.
Department of Labor Bureau
of Labor Statistics. The distri-
bution of those jobs was as
follows:
Waiters and waitresses -
2,097,000.
Combined food prepara-,
tion and serving workers,
including fast food
1,990,000.
Dishwashers 505,000.
Counter attendants, cafe-
teria, food concession and
coffee shop -467,000.
Bartenders 463,000
Dining room and cafete-


Wesley Phillibert and Debbie Huckestein work behind the
counter at McDonald's.


ria attendants and bartender
helpers 409,000.
Hosts and hostesses,
restaurant, lounge and coffee
shop 298,000.
Food servers, nonrestau-
rant- 195,000
Other food preparation
and serving-related workers
-117,000.'
Chefs, cooks and food
preparation workers held


nearly 3.0 million jobs in,
2002, the bureau noted. The
distribution of those jobs was
as follows:
Food preparation work-
ers 850,000.
Cooks, restaurant -
727,000.
Cooks, fast food -
588,000.
Cooks, institution and
cafeteria 436,000.


Cooks, short order -
227,000.
Chefs and head cooks -
132,000.
Cooks, private household
-8,000.
Area fast-food and full ser-
vice restaurants seem to be
continually looking for work-
ers. It was a different story be-
fore Hurricane Charley hit
last August.
S"Since then, finding work-
ers has been very difficult,"
said Dominick lerfino, who
supervises a half-dozen area
McDonald's for father-son
owners Ryland and Rick
Lovett. "Although, things have
gotten a little better over the
last couple of months."
Open from 6 a.m.-mid-
night seven days a week, each
McDonald's averages about.
50 crew members and shift
managers, lerfino said. He
said wages vary depending
on the job and the time a per-
son can work.
"We have jobs for any age
group," lerfino said, "including
school kids who want to work
in the afternoon or parents and


grandparents who want to
work in the evenings. We can
pretty much- fit a schedule
around anyone's needs."
lerfino said McDohald's
has begun a new hiring pro-
gram that involves two Web
sites: hiringtowin.com for
career-minded individuals
interested in management;
and mcflorida.com, where
online applications are avail-
able for all participating rest-
aurants.
On its Web site, McDon-
ald's describes itself as "The
No. 1 training company in the
service industry." The compa-
ny says it has trained one out
of every 12 working Amer-
icans and hires and trains
more than 2,000 people in the
United States every day.
Like Wal-Mart in the retail
industry, McDonald's is so big
it has become a symbol for
the negative aspects of work-
ing at fast-food restaurants.
Nevertheless, the U.S. De-
partment of'Labor credits the
industry with providing
"many opportunities" for
young people.

Florida Power & Light urges energy conservation

he fuel that runs many of
the power plants that dot
Florida is natural gas. The
main supply for natural gas is
the Gulf of Mexico, and the
pipeline.that supplies the gas
to FP&L is shut down in the
wake of Hurricane Katrina's
devastation.
FP&L spokesman Mel
Klein said the company asked
commercial operations to
shut down Tuesday due to the
uncertain fuel supply caused
by Hurricane Katrina. The
commercial shutdown pro-
gram affects every county
FP&L serves, except Miami-
Dade and Broward, which are
still recovering from the
effects of Katrina.
FP&L officials say they are

ENERGY CONSERVATION
The following energy conservation measures are requested by
Florida Power & Light:
- Set the thermostat at 78 degrees or warmer. Set the thermostat
fan switch on "auto." Keep temperature readings constant until
notified that the fuel uncertainty has passed.
- When away from home, raise thermostats to 82 degrees or
warmer.
- Close curtains and blinds to help insulate homes and buildings
against loss of cool air.
* Avoid using room air conditioners or turn them off when you
leave the room or your home.
* Reduce use of all nonessential electric appliances, such as dish-
washers and clothes dryers, especially during the late afternoon
and early evening.

On-Call activated
Although FP&L says it has
enough power to meet the
needs of its customers


presently, the company is en-
couraging wide use of energy
conservation while the full
impact of Katrina on Gulf of
Mexico fuel production is
Assessed.

DISCOLORED TEETH
The darkened color of a front tooth means there is some degree of
nerve degeneration. This color change, however, is! not conclusive
since the pulp (composed of the nerve, blood vessels, and certain
other elements) is capable of fully recovering from injury. When this
happens we can be left with a tooth that is darker but quite healthy.
Discolored bacl teeth, are usually caused by color changes produced
by an amalgam filling whose metal components have invaded the
adjacent tooth structure. There is no reason to replace a discolored
filling or one next to darkened tooth structure, unless it is visually
objectionable. In fact there is! evide'nce'that the discoloring invasion
actually seals the junction between filling and tooth, making it more
secure from decay bacteria. The problem is that decay can also cause
discoloration as can a variety of bacteria. The color may be just stain,
but to prevent potential difficulties, any pronounced color changes,
anterior or posterior, should be checked by your dentist.

It has been reported that
90 percent, of the gulf's pro-
duction of natural gas is
unavailable. FP&L relies on
natural gas for 38 percent of
its fuel to produce electricity,.
Klein said.
Although FP&L has the
t]exibiliry to switch fuels at
some of its power plants, the
uncertainly of the length of
,time that natural gas produc-
tion may be interrupted is
causing the company to urge
customers to conserve, Klein
said.
The voluntary appeal to
conserve energy follows a
declared statewide Gener-
ating Capacity Advisory from
the Florida Reliability Coor-
dinating Council Tuesday'
"As a precautionary'tnea-
sure, we are asking our cus-
tomers to take voluntary en-
ergy conservation measures


now, not only as a way to
lower electric use and the bill,
but to lower the impact of
what may, become a fuel
shortage as a result of Hur-
ricane Katrina's impact to fuel
production in' the Gulf of'
Mexico," said Armando Oli-
vera, president of FP&L, in a
statement.
In addition to its public
appeal for voluntary conser-
vation, FP&L will implement
prearranged, energy manage-
ment programs for partici-
pating customers, turning off
pool pumps and water heat-
ers through its On-Call resi-
dential program.
Customers participating in
the residential On-Call pro-
gram receive a monthly re-
duction on electric bills.

Part one of a two-part article.
BYJERRYWOELFEL
GUEST WRITER

There are eight in our tal-
ented and congenial group -
photographers and artists,
collectively known as the
"Phartists."
Some are more talented
and some are more conge-
nial. This summer, the multi-
talented congenial group
members traveled together to
places that would yield good
pictures. for all, painters and
photographers.
The group consists of:
Jack and Mary Jo Perkins.
(Jack, as host of the award
winning TV series, "Bi-
ography," told us stories of
some of the world's most fas-
cinating people. As NBC news
correspondent for 25 years,
he traveled the world. Now
retired inVenice, he combines
those experiences as host of
the local WEDU show, "Gulf
Coast Journal," concentrating
on local people and places.
Jack is our trip planner and
guide. Mary Jo is a budding
artist and a fierce Mote Ma-
rine Laboratory volunteer tur-
tle watcher and protector.
Chuck and Maureen Sny-
der. From Wisconsin, Chuck
is a retired. AXA executive,
known as the Phartists' sher-
pa or "gofer." He totes and
fetches for all of us, including
his photographer wife Mau-
reem:
John and Suzie Seerey-
Lester (John is world re-
nowned for his wildlife paint-
ing. Suzie is both artist and
photographer). Both are
know for their artistic contri-
butions to local charities.
Bob and lerry Woelfel. Bob
is a retired surgeon and now
photographer and budding
artist and I have retired from
working for the State of
Florida. I serve as "Sherpette"
and "Ms. Gofer."
The plan calls for all of us
to meet up at the Harraseeket
Inn in Freeport, Maine. We are
on our own to get there any-
way we can. Bob and I flew to
Boston, rented a car and
drove the rest of the way,
heading first to Bailey Island
to visit my Nokomis friend
Nancy Feehan who owns a
summer residence there, just
18 miles from Freeport. On
the way we drove over a "crib
stone" bridge, the only one in
existence after the bombing
of the other in Europe during
the war. The bridge was con-
structed in 1928 from large
slabs of native granite. The
bridge is an engineering phe-
nomenon, built without mor-
tar, allowing for tidal flow and
lobster boat wakes to flow
through the rocks without
disturbing them. Bibs and all,
we feasted on steamers and
fresh-caught lobsters with
Nancy and family friend Glen.
Later we headed back
down the coast to the inn to
meet up with the rest of the
group and learn our schedule
of events from Jack.
The Harraseeket Inn is a
four-diamond, AAA-rated bed
and breakfast with suites
complete with fireplaces and
Jacuzzis, award-winning din-
ing facilities and an exercise
room and swimming pool to
relax in at the end of your day.
The Inn also serves its guests a
wonderful afternoon tea.
Close to Casco Bay, Brad-
bury State Park and the Ma-
rine Maritime Museum, the
inn is just two blocks from
L.L. Bean's main store. Also
nearby are the Mast Landing
Audubon Sanctuary, Sugar-
loaf and Saddleback ski re-
sorts, the Wolfe Neck Woods
State Park and the South Free-
port lobstering docks. Why
else come to Maine except


for the lobsters? We spent two
days in Freeport, some of us
at L.L. Bean and others pho-
tographing and painting the
wonderful local scenes.
Off to Monhegan Island
From Freeport, we headed
to Monhegan Island by way of
Pemaquid Point and its
famous lighthouse. Our pho-
tographers took shots of the
lighthouse and coastline
before we boarded the ferry to
Monheganlsland, 10 miles off
the Maine coast. Three gener-
ations of the Wyeth family
have been its most famous
artists-in-residence for years.
JamieWyeth is saidto still be a
frequent visitor.
For the next two days, we
would be staying at the Island
Inn, which has 34 different
rooms or suites, some with
private bathrooms, others
with shared facilities. Original
parts of the inn date to 1816.
The rooms are small but at-
tractive and have the Maine-
style painted floors, painted
furniture, antique oak pieces
scattered here and there and
no telephone or TV to distract
the guests from the serenity of
the island. Since this was
built as a summerhouse -
there is no heating but a fire-
place, which warms guests
when it gets chilly.
When we arrived, we were
met by the Island Inn truck,
which was there to take our
luggage to the inn. We got
there by hiking up the hill. We
had been told to bring our
walking shoes but it was an
easy walk and even the slow-
est members of the group
were there in two minutes.
As has-become our group
practice, we threw the robm
keys in a hat and chose blind-
ly to see who would get what
room. Bob and Igot one of the
smaller rooms but we did
have a private bath.
All of us settled in and then
broke out into artists, photog-
raphers and walkers, with the
intent of seeing the island and
what scenery it has to offer.
John Seerey-Lester does not
go far down to the harbor
and sets up shop to paint. He
attracted many onlookers and
quickly produced another
masterpiece.
Maureen takes off to cap-
ture the lighthouse and island
scenes with her camera. I
hope that I might convince
her to share her work with the
community. Bob had given
me a new digital. "point and
shot" Canon Elf with 5 mega
pixels and a 3x zoom lens (for
those of you who understand
cameras). I boldly headed off
to see what I could capture.
We were to meet later in
the dining room. We all had
great stories and pictures to
share.
Mary Jo Perkins had start-
ed a masterpiece of her own
- I was not really aware of
just how talented she is. Bob
was the "beginner" artist in
the crowd and he decided to:
head out for a hike to see what
he could find of interest
around the island to photo-
graph.
Suzie Seerey-Lester and
Jack Perkins have been busy
with a videographer filming a
PBS series of "John Seerey-
Lester Paints America" in
which Jack will be doing com-
mentary. Suzie has not as yet
had the opportunity to paint.
Chuck Snyder and I had a
good "walk," covering most of
the island and I hopefully
captured some good pictures
while learning how to use my
new camera.
We saw many other artists
on the island, some beginners
and some with considerable
talent.
I was introduced to the
"town dog," Madeline. She

spends the day walking from
one store to the other "allow-
ing" the tourists to feed her
tidbits that they acquire at the
stores. All the goodies are
fresh-baked daily on the is-
land, and it appears that
Madeline has been well fed.
Since we had eaten at the
inn the previous evening, the
group tried another local spot
for more lobster and delicious
fish. We found the seafood
fresh, of course, but most ex-
pensive. We had been warned
at the Mlaine Welcome station
when we arrived do not ex-
pect any deals on rooms or
food this is the height of its
season.
On the lonhegan Island
you can compound that
statement but the island
experience was well worth
the added expense.


Phartists learn
about island living
Leaving the island behind,
we took the ferry back to the
mainland for our drive up the
coast to Stonington, the area
around Penobscot Bay, one of
the most beautiful spots
along the Maine coastline..
While the rest of the group
dined on lobster rolls dock-
side, Bob and I headed north
on our own, driving over the
bridge to Little Deer Isle on
the way. As the fog rolled in
we were given another pic-
turesque Maine scene.
In Stonington, we found
the Inn on the Harbor at the
southern tip of Deer Isle. The
inn has a panoramic view of
many islands including Isle
au Haut, which will be our
next destination after our two

days in Stonington.
Since Bob and I were there
so early, with no clue as to
how soon the rest of the
group would arrive, the inn-
keeper performed our usual
"keys in the hat routine." Bob
and I ended up with the only
second-floor room of the
group. The rest were assigned

SSi SOUTH FLORIO..


STAFF REPORT

The Jeppesen VisionQuest
program began in Orange
County public schools with
little more than a handful of
volunteers and a dream.
Prior to 1994, most at-risk
Florida children born with
poor vision were destined for
social and academic failure.
Since then, Jeppesen Vision-
Quest, a nonprofit organiza-
tion that provides free com-
prehensive vision exams and
state-of-the-art new glasses,
has worked to insure that
Florida's most vulnerable chil-
dren can see clearly enough
to read.
The program helps teach-
ers and nurses to identify
children in need of help, re-
cruits doctors to give free
vision exams and has devel-
oped a state-of-the-art optical
lab that manufactures beau-
tiful, contemporary glasses.
JVQ also provides eyeglass-
es for every known nonprofit
children's vision program in
the state. From the Dr. Bruce
Heiken Memorial Fund in
Dade County, to the Vision Is
Priceless Council in Duval
County, the Eyes Program in
Broward County, the Palm
Beach Health Care District
and many of the Lions Clubs
throughout the state.
It is because of these great
collaborative efforts that we
can say that in Florida, every
child is able to see clearly
enough to read.
This year alone, the Jep-
pesen VisionQuest program
will serve more than 14,000
children. For more than 70
percent of these students,
grades, behavior and atten-
dance are improving while
they marvel at being able to
see actual leaves on trees,
words on the chalkboard
and birds fly.


VisionQuest's contribution
to children is best told in the
simple words of Meosha, a
fifth-grade student at Orange
Center Elementary School:
"I was a student who got
into trouble some kind of
way, every single day. I did
not understand most of my
classwork," she said.. "I
thought it was one thing, but
when test time came, I found
out it was really another."
Moesha said she was sus-
pended a total of 60 days last
year.
"I am not a bad kid. I was
just becoming more and
more frustrated because
things were never completely
clear to me. Since I got my
new glasses, I make As and Bs


Dr. Thomas E. Blom, O.D., P.A.
is now part of the Jeppesen
VisionQuest volunteer
Doctor Network.


DR. BLOM ACCEPTING REFERRALS
Jeppesen VisionQuest (JVQ) welcomes Dr. Thomas E. Blom, O.D.,
P.A., to the volunteer Doctor Network. Bloom will be accepting
referrals from JVQ to provide much-needed vision care. at no
charge, to Sarasota County's at-risk children. JVQ provides free
vision exams and custom-made corrective eyeglasses for econom-
ically disadvantaged school children at risk of social and academic
failure because of an inability to see well. Since its inception in
1994, JVQ has granted thousands of Florida children the opportu-
nity to see positive and productive futures. For more information
call Bloom's office at 925-3937 or JVQ at (407) 323-2040.


in my schoolwork and I have
not been suspended any-
more: I was on a third-grade
reading level and I am now
on a fifth-grade reading level,
and in the highest math
group."
Meosha's story is not un-
usual. An estimated 25 per-
cent of Florida families live
daily in poverty. For a strug-
gling family or a single moth-
er, the price of an eye exam
and glasses is often out of
the question. Fortunately, for
Meosha, the agony of failure
is being replaced by the joy
of success making a per-
manent impact on the out-
come of her life.
For Moesha, and thou-
sands of children like her, a
simple pair of glasses are the
key to her future as she ex-
periences the joy of seeing
simple clarity; words on the
chalkboard; math problems
in her text. Perhaps as Moe-
sha grows older, she will for-
get the volunteers who first
gave her glasses, but she will
never forget that magical day
the fog lifted and she finally
understood she could read.

Golden boy shines at disability games .


BYSHELLYJANKE
STAFF WRITER


Nine-year-old Joey Chia-
varoli is a national track
champion.
And the fact that he was
bor with spina bifida hasn't
slowed him down a bit.
For the past four years,
Chiavaroli has brought home
the gold at the National Junior
Disability Championships.
"I do the shot put, discus,
javelin, the softball throw, and
25- and 50-meter swimming,"
Chiavaroli said.
In addition, Chiavaroli,
who uses a wheelchair, partic-
ipated in swim relays and
wheelchair races.
He received 10 first-place
awards and three second-
place awards this year.
Chiavaroli's mother, Lesli
Richardson, said her son loves
to compete.
"We're not pushing him,"
Richardson said. "We keep it
fun."
This year, the games were
held in Tampa, but last year
the games were held in Mesa,
Ariz. Chiavaroli said the
weather there was too hot for
him.
"It was like standing be-
hind a car's tailpipe the whole
time," Chiavaroli said.
A need for speed
According to the Spina
Bifida Association's Web site,
spina-bifida is a neural tube
defect that happens in the
first month of pregnancy. It is
the most common perma-
nently disabling birth defect;
almost 70,000 Americans are
currently living with spina
bifida, according to the site.
Richardson said her son
needs occasional surgery. For
instance, he has hydro-
cephalus, or fluid on the
brain, which is common
among those with spina bifi-
da. Chia\aroli has had to have
surgery to insert a shunt that
helps drain the fluid.
Chiavaroli also wears a
body brace because he has


Nine-year-old Joey Chiavaroli has never been one to let his
handicap slow him down. The youngster recently took home a
bunch of awards in the National Junior Disability
Championships.


scoliosis.
But other than that, Rich-
ardson said, Joey is a normal,
healthy 9-year-old boy.
He has many pets, includ-
ing dogs, birds and a cat.
Chiavaroli has many friends,
but no brothers or sisters.
"And I don't think I want
any," Chiavaroli said.
Chiavaroli is also a mem-
ber of the Tampa Bay Blaze,
an organization that coordi-
nates regional athletic com-
petitions for the physically
disabled.
Richardson said some peo-
ple look at children in wheel-
chairs and automatically feel
sorry for them.
"People don't realize he's a


9-year-old boy with a 50-
pound weapon, and I've got
the bruises to prove it,"
Richardson said.
Richardson home-schools
Chiavaroli, and she said he
has very strong math skills.
"He can also name every
one of the Sarasota County
commissioners," Chiavaroli
said.
Once he reaches his teens,
Richardson said, she'll let
Chiavaroli decide if he'd like
to attend high school.
Richardson also said it's
possible her son could com-
pete in the Paralympics some
day. He recently attended a
camp where he learned the
basics of racing from Para-


lympians.
"He's got a need for speed,"
Richardson said. "We call him
"Speed Racer.'"
The $5,000 chair
But Richardson is worried
about paying for her son to
compete in the 2006 National
Junior Disability Champion-
ships in Boston.
"It gets expensive," Rich-
ardson said. "We have to buy
him a new race chair every
year because he outgrows
them."
One chair costs $5,000, she
said.
Richardson said it's often
difficult to find sponsors for
the physically disabled, be-
cause people don't know that
a contribution to the Special
Olympics only benefits the
mentally disabled.
"People will often say, 'I
already donate money to the
Special Olympics,' Rich-
ardson said, "but that doesn't
help people with physical dis-
abilities."
Richardson said that any-
one who helps sponsor a dis-
abled child now is contribut-
ing to society,in the long run.
"Disabled athletes learn to
be self-sufficient," Richardson
said. "That's less money they
will need from the govern-
ment in the future. It's an
investment."
To help cover costs, Rich-
ardson and Chiavaroli have
made ornaments that they
will sell this Christmas sea-
son.
But regardless of the extra
time and money Richardson
spends for her son, she said
it's all worth it.
"He keeps me busy," Rich-
ardson said, "and I wouldn't
trade him for the world."
If you would like to help
sponsor Chiavaroli, call Lesli
Richardson at (941) 716-4674
or Randy Chiavaroli at (727)
271-6411.

Quilts from the heart


BYSHELLYJANKE
STAFF WRITER


Chris Raver couldn't let her
son leave to serve in Iraq
without sending a guardian
angel along with him.
Raver, owner of A Quilter's
Cottage, 1075 South McCall
Road, quilted a small Amer-
ican flag for her 34-year-old
son Rick, who will be de-
ployed Sept. 13 with the rest
of the lOstAirbore Division
based out of Fort Campbell,
Ky.
The "pack flag," as Raver
calls it, is small enough to fit
inside her son's Army back-
pack and has a guardian
angel verse sewn on the back.
The verse reads: "Guardian
angel put a white light of pro-
tection around this soldier
and his equipment. Guide
him through his missions and
keep him out of harm's way.
Let him return safely to his
loved ones."
But Raver didn't stop there.
She decided to keep on quilt-
ing.
Rave'rs son asked her if,
she'd be willing to make a few
more flags for the rest of the
soldiers.
"Rick.said, 'Well, mom, we,
could really use at least 85,'"
Raver said, "so I decided to
make 101."


Ten helping hands and
three weeks later, Raver fin-
ished the quilts.
"It only took three weeks
and five people to make
them," Raver said. "Rick's dad
even sewed all of the stripes
together."
Raver is taking the flags to
Kentucky on Sept. 1. She will
spend time with her son there
before he's deployed.
Raver said Rick is a profes-
sor at the University of South
Florida. At age 33, Rick enlist-
ed as a soldier.
"He did ROTC in high
school," Raver said. "He has
always been service-orient-
ed."
The deployment came at a
very hectic time for Rick, as he
just finished coursework on
his doctorate in instructional
technology.
"He's a dissertation away
from his doctorate," Raver
said.
Raver said she wasn't sure
how many soldiers will be
deployed with her son, but
the flags are for anyone who
wants one.
"If they want one, they can
:take one," Raver said. "If not,
hat's OK 'too."

RULGI1N COLUMNIST


(My only daughter heads
off to a college in Pennsyl-
vania very soon. She has
spent the last couple weeks in
Durham, England, doing
some "nanny" work with
close friends [Jeff and Rhea
and their six children]. She
was able to take a day trip to
Scotland this week alone.
This e-mail is a particular
heartwarmer as the flower of
youth is so apparent. Hope
you enjoy it. Dwight L.
Dolby)

Hi all!
I hope my note finds you
all well. I had an awesome day
in Edinburgh. The train ride
there was exceptional as well.
As we drove along I could see


the sea! Then came the rolling
hills of Scotland. My, were
they beautiful! I arrived in the
Edinburgh station around 9
a.m. The first thought that
zipped through my mind was
"What am I doing here?" I felt
so alone, so lost. I followed a
group of young guys who
seemed to know where they
were going till I discovered
that they were getting onto
another train. Woops! Back
up. I knew I needed a good
map and a soothing cup of
coffee. I made my way up to
the tourist information sta-
tion and bought some tourist
books on Edinburgh, the
Royal Mile (the touristy
downtown, historical street of
Edinburgh) and the castle. I
found a really good map I
thought even I could follow. I
also picked up a few post-
cards (cause I decided not to
bring my camera). I made my
way back down a flight of
steps into a mall where there
was a coffee stand. I opened
up the map and plotted out a
course likeJeffsuggested I do.
Then I prayed, gathered up all
the courage I could muster
and headed out. I knew I had
to make three rights to get to
the Royal Mile and the castle.


But you know me and direc-
tions. I made three successive
lefts! Before I knew it I didn't
know where I was! Though I
did know how to get back to
the station (which was com-
forting). I came to a nice row
of shops .and houses and
enjoyed the view so much
that I continued on my way.
Thinking I could always find
my way back again, I pulled
out my map a few times but
tried in vain to find my loca-
tion. So I continued on, sur-
prisingly confident in my
heavenly father's presence,
guiding and care. I continued
on and found a few neat and
free museums and browsed
through them. Then I came to
the Conogate Church, which
King James the First built.
After exploring its exceptional
graveyard (in which, Adam
Smith and Robert Ferguson
are buried) I pulled out my
map and, lo and behold, I was
on the. Royal Mile. Hurrah!
Now I knew exactly where I
was. I continued down
Conogate Street and sudden-
ly there loomed before me
this gigantic Scottish crag. It
was as high as any mountain;
totally treeless. This feeling of
intense adventure stole over


me and I knew I had to climb
it. But first I needed some
fuel. I found this little tea
shop that sold lentil soup for
less than two pounds a real
deal. I had some soup, a roll
and a glass of water and ate
for 2.33. Then it was off to
climb the crag. I had so much
fun. There were other folks
climbing as well, so I really
had nothing to fear. I climbed
and climbed and climbed. I
found out that this crag I saw
was connected by a valley to
an even larger plateau, so I
climbed that one, too. When I
reached the top I could see
the whole city of Edinburgh
stretched out before me ....
and beyond. I saw this loch
way off in the distance and in
the distance Scottish high-
lands. It was truly breathtak-
ing. Not used to such a high
altitude and such rigorous
exercise I took a break, sat
down in the soft grass. Then
came the climb down. Of
course I couldn't use the same
path. So off came my shoes
and down I carefully slid
toward the valley. After about
15 minutes of treacherous
descent, on went the shoes

Here is an opportunity for
uniting your will with the will
of God.
Remember when Jesus said,
"The greatest commandment
is to love the Lord your God
withyour whole heart, soul and
mind, and love your neighbor
as yourself."
Jesus asks but two things of
us: Love for him and for our
neighbor, these are what we
must strive to obtain. If we
practice both these virtues per-
fectly, we shall be doing his will
and so shall be united to him.
Christian love involves a
firm will to give what is truly
good to others. It requires
generosity. "One who cares
only for his own self-interest
is false to himself and loses
everything; one who gives all
out of unselfish love attains
fulfillment, and bears just
fruit" (John: 12.24-25).
The philosophy of God is
completely based on love: Love
God and lore your neighbor.
"He who has my command-
ments and keeps them, he it is
who loves Me" (John: 14.21).
Professions of piety and loy-
alty amount to nothing if we do

"Friendship with God does
demand that, and those who
refuse to accept the minimal
demands do riot rise to any

(Matt.: 21.28-31).

Faith In Action celebrates Partners in Service


STAFF REPORT


This past month two Ven-
ice'churches received recog-
nition for their status as
Partners in Service with the
Faith In Action program of the
Senior Friendship Centers
Inc.
On Aug. 14, Keith Back-
haus, program director, visit-
ed the Venice United Church
of Christ to present a poster to
the Rev. Paul Olm-Stoelting
and Nelson Hay, cochairs of
the Mission Board.
"Your institutional sup-
port," said Backhaus, "sends a
message that the spirit of
'people helping people' is
alive and well where it
belongs in the communi-
ties of faith."
Backhaus and Janet Onnie,
Faith In Action volunteer
coordinator, celebrated the
Faith In Action partnership


with SunCoast Cathedral
MCC on Aug. 29. Onnie intro-
duced Friendly Visitor Rod
Jacobs and Telephone Re-
assurance Caller LaVerne
Hauser as "angels" in their
congregation. The Rev. Lori
Rivera accepted the Faith In
Action poster on behalf of the
church.
Faith In Action is a nation-
al program that recruits vol-
unteers from the faith com-
munities and trains them to
form a caring relationship,
either in person or via tele-
phone, with a person who is
frail and usually homebound.
Faith In Action volunteers
spend an hour or so each
week grocery shopping, run-
ning errands, transporting to
medical appointments and
socializing with their clients.
The program is part of the
Senior' Friendship Centers
Inc.

come and go from the harbor.
Built in the 1880s, The Inn
on the Harbor is actually four
old Victorian buildings joined
together, making 13 guest
rooms available, all very orig-
inal and inviting. Each was
named after the sailing
schooners that presently sail
in and out of Stonington
Harbor.
Katrina, the innkeeper, is a
young' lady who retired to
Maine from New York City
where she was a jewelry
designer atTiffany's and other
such establishments. She said
she wanted to be where the
"real people" live. She has
remodeled the inn to perfec-
tion, enjoys the people and
the place. We followed her
suggestion for dinner at a
restaurant two doors from the
inn..The food was good and
we were thankful for an early
night as the next day would
be spent painting.
After a day filled with
photo and painting opportu-
nities, we headed our inn-
keeper's recommendation
and headed out of town to a
place called the Cockatoo,
where we sat outside at picnic
tables and met the restau-
rant's mascot, a Maluccan
cockatoo named Mango. The
Cockatoo restaurant was
named an Editor's Choice
2005in Yankee magazine and
specializes in Portuguese-
inspired seafood dishes. It is
one of the top 10 seafood
restaurants on the coast of
Maine. All of their seafood is
fresh caught daily, much of it
by the chef's husband. You
can personally select the deli-
cacy'that will be prepared for
you.
Bacalhua, a Portuguese
shredded catfish dish on the
menu brought back memo-
ries. (My father and I were
served Bacalhua as guests
aboard a Portuguese naval
vessel when we sailed the
Atlantic before I was mar-
ried.) As none of the group
had ever had it, we ordered it
as a unique appetizer for the
group. We also ordered
"Flamig Pig," a Portuguese
chourico sausage on a skewer
and cooked to perfection (by
the diners) at the table. John
Seerey-Lester was in charge of
that one and provided great
entertainment for the group.
My entree choice was
Capt. Carter's Delight, a com-
bination of fried clams, scal-
lops, shrimp, fish and salad
that is way too much for the
average person to eat, so we
all shared it. Mary Jo ordered
the garlic butter crab legs a
basketful and again way
too much for the average per-
son to eat so we were all luck
enough to have a leg. We
know why the restaurant was
named Editor's Choice. I
would recommend it to any-
one in the vicinity of Ston-
ington.
While at Stonington, we

acquired a copy of "How to
Live on an Island," which was
compiled by the Stonington
Comprehensive Plan Com-
mittee and the Stonington
Conservation Commission.
All of our group thoroughly
enjoyed it and decided that
something similar should be
written for Venice and Casey
Key. Among the pearls of wis-
dom included were these
(paraphrased):
"What's the rush? You can't
catch a train or plane from
here (unless you own it, in
which case it will wait for
you), so enjoy our slowerpace
and turn off your cell phones
in our restaurants it really
is very annoying."
A dress code was included
too.
"Don't get us wrong, we
love getting decked out as
much as anybody. But you
have probably studied our
L.L. Bean catalog long
enough to realize we have a
more casual dress code so
don't bother with the suit
coats, around here they just
get you snickered at."
Attitude
"Yeah, Yeah, we know you
are from the big city but does
this look like the big city to
you? Welcome to a laid-back
place where threatening to
call your lawyer because your
fish is overcooked may be
somewhat inappropriate.
Relax all that stuff will be
waiting for you when you get
home."
The booklet also covers
water resources, beach access
and the fact ihat, while the
town is a tourist destination,
which they want you to enjoy,
the locals are not on vacation
- all are local topics of con-
cern in the Venice area too.
The booklet is quite amus-
ing while pointing out that
island living is fragile and
everyone needs to work to
preserve it.

EDITOR'S NOTE: In Part II of
The "Phartists" Do Maine, the
group heads to Haut Island where
winning the group's key game is
key to to the good life on this
island.

again, and I stumbled onto
the pathway thankful that
men had built such stone
paths to tame these wild hills.
After that adventure I wan-
dered uptown looking for an
entrance into this neat grave-
yard I'd seen from the crag.
Soon I found it. Amid the
gigantic tombstones grew
wild blackberry bushes. I
enjoyed'a couple of the riper
ones. Then. I sat on an old
stone and played my whistle
for about 10 minutes.
I stopped and had some
'ice cream on my walk toward


the Edinburgh castle. When I
got- there, it had- already
cosed but I was able to walk
all around it. There was also a
fair going on with street musi-
cians and performers. I -was
able to take some' of that in
too. I visited Saint Giles
Church'and saw a huge statue
of John Knox. I also saw a
huge monument to David
Livingston, located in the
more modern downtown
center. Around 7 p.m. I found
a McDonald's and had a deli
sandwich there with roast
beef and mature cheddar


cheese. My, was that good!
Did some, shopping: But
about 7:30 everything'wvas
closing dowtf. So I found
,another coffee shop, got a
mocha and sat down to read
mybook.
Then I made my way out-
side to have a look at
Edinburgh one last time. I
met a beggar and we chatted
a bit. I gave him two pounds
and told him I'd pray for him.
His name was Bob.
I went to platform 11, sat
down and waited for my
train. Several pages later I was


home in Durham, in the
..kitchen with Jeff and Rhea,
then fast asleep in Abigail's
'bed. What a wonderful day!
I can't wait to show you the
neat souvenirs and postcards.
Today Rhea is going to take
the kids to a fountain park
where they can go swimming,
then after a bit we may head
up to Hadrian's Wall.
I know we will all have
another great day. I love you
all very much! Can't wait to
see you all agairi!
Cheers,
Nan

GUEST WRITER


Playing an aspiring singer
and actress trying to make it
in Hollywood shouldn't have
been much of a challenge for
Ashlee Simpson, but for her
first major big screen role, the
"7th Heaven" veteran went
Method.
"I felt like the character
really didn't care about her
appearance and how she
looked and whatnot and I
really ,wanted to feel that
way," Sin ,pson says, explain-
ing-why she would ofterngo a
week at a time without show-
ering to get into the right act-
ing space on "Undiscovered."
"I'm so glad that I'm just
now learning this," Simpson's
costar Kip Pardue quips. "I
mean, we wouldn't have
talked."
With her movie coming
out this Friday and a new
album set to drop in October,


The 40-Year-Old Virgin
40-year-old Andy Stitzer (Steve
Carrell) has done quite a few things in
his life. He's got a cushy job stamping
invoices at an electronics superstore,
a nice apartment with a proud collec-
tion of action figures and comic
books, good friends, a nice attitude.
But there's just one little thing he has-
n't quite gotten around to doing yet -
something most people have done by
his age. Done a lot Andy's never, ever,
ever had sex not even by accident
So is that such a big deal?

One hundred comics tell the
same very dirty joke in various ways.
The joke, which has been told by
comics since Vaudeville, starts the
same way and ends the same way.
It's what the person telling the joke
says to get from point A to B that
makes this the dirtiest joke ever told.

Broken Flowers
The resolutely single Don has just

himself to being alone. Instead, he is
compelled to reflect on his past when'
he receives a mysterious pink letter
from an anonymous former lover that
informs him he has a 19-year-old
son who may now be looking for him.
Don is urged to investigate this "mys-
tery" by his closest friend and neigh-
bor. Don embarks on a cross-country
trek in search of clues from four for-
mer flames. Unannounced visits to
each of these unique women hold
new surprises for Don as he haphaz-
ardly confronts his past and, conse-

Simpson is back on the
bathing train. She's also gone
blonde again, after going to
raven around the time of
filming. While Simpson's
character, Clea, is probably
only the fourth or fifth most
important in the "Undis-
covered" ensemble, Lions
Gate is certainly emphasizing
the rising star's presence. It's
a promotional strategy that
probably goes somewhat
against Simpson's desire for
the small film.
"I was looking for a movie
where I wasn't the lead in it
and a rovie where I could
go in and work with great
actors," explains Simpson,
probably as well known for
her MTV reality show and.
oft-mocked "Saturday Night
Live" meltdown as for her
artistic endeavors.
Beyond Simpson and
Pardue, the cast of "Un-
discovered" includes Pell
James, Steven Strait and

battle, and must find a way to defeat
them for real.The brothers are based

established veterans like Car-
rie Fisher and Peter Weller.
Some of Simpson's costars
admit that they were initially
wary that the more familiar
celebrity might be a distrac-
tion on set.
"What do you expect from
someone who's 19 and is a
multimillion dollar super-
star?" James explains. "I was
really nervous, like, 'Oh God,
what's it gonna be like?' She
was so nice. She knew all her
lines. She came in. She did it."
James was particularly
impressed with Simpson's
frantic schedule.
"She's like this little
machine of work," she gush-
es. "After work she would go
and record albums and then
fly away for the weekend to
do concerts or wave in a
parade one time. Seriously,
she has this crazy 24-7 work
life and it's really impressive."
Simpson, whose sister
Jessica also spent her late


(Johnny Depp) and Charlie (Freddie
Highmore), a good-hearted boy from
a poor family who lives in the shad-
ow of Wonka's extraordinary. factory.
Wonka launches a worldwide contest
to select an heir to his candy
empire. Five lucky children, including
Charlie, win a guided tour of the leg-
endary candy-making facility that no
outsider has seen in 15 years.
Dazzled by one amazing sight after
another, Charlie is drawn into
Wonka's fantastic world in this
astonishing and enduring story.

that traces the 53-year history
of Holiday Inn through the
stories of the guests who have
"borrowed" the now- iconic

"About the Towels, We

of Borrowed Towels" is a col-

Holiday Inn guests seeking
amnesty for their towel-tak-

"This book is not as much a
celebration of the Holiday Inn

S- the very people who possess
them," said Mark Snyder,
senior \ice president, brand
management, Holiday Inn
Hotels & Resorts.
"The towels are physical

memories that live on in the
hearts and minds of their
S owners."

Holiday Inn gave travelers
a chance to tell their towel
stories funny, romantic,
touching when it declared
Aug. 28, 2003, "Towel Am-

donated $1 and matched the
donation for each towel story
that was submitted.
After receiving thousands

Sylvia Jelinek started working at Loveland Center in 1985 as a temporary bus driver. Two
months later there was an opening for a full-time instructor, and the rest is history. Sylvia says,
"It has been a very good place to work. Why change when you have something so good?"
Everyone at Loveland Center, especially the students, say, "Thank you, Sylvia, for all you've
done for us the last 20 years' Keep up the good work. We love and appreciate you."

Woodward Dream Cruise draws crowd


Folks from across the country came to enjoy the high-octane feast


AW odward Avenue
starts at the Detroit
River. Standing in the
park that marks the beginning
of the city's main street, the
richness of Detroit's diversity
is obvious. Looking south
across the river is the skyline
of Windsor, Canada; to the
north is The Renaissance
Center headquarters for
many companies, including
General Motors. Looking
northwest, one faces the giant
fist of Joe Lewis a symbol of
the city's heritage and per-
haps a hint of the rugged
determination of its people.
On this day, the street
appears to look like so many
others in so many cities -
peaceful, quiet, and busi-
nesslike. Nothing could be
further from the truth. Eight
miles up the avenue, the


street is rumbling with the,
sounds of high-performance
engines, and the smoke from
burning tires fills the air. The
11th Annual Woodward
Dream Cruise is in full swing.
During the next few days, over
40,000 cars will be on display,
and 1.7 million spectators will
enjoy the best heavy metal
Detroit has to offer.
The Woodward Dream
Cruise is billed as the world's
largest one-day celebration of
car culture, but this past week
Woodward was congested


with hot rods, vintage cars
and exotic sports cars for days
before the official event on
Saturday. The sides of the
street were lined with show
cars, treating automobile
enthusiasts from around the
county to perhaps the longest.
car show in the world. The
cruise meandered through six
Detroit suburban communi-
ties, beginning in Ferndale
and finishing in Pontiac.
Dream Cruise participants
that made the full circuit
traveled 32 miles!
At the show this year I
caught up with Nolan Adams.
Nolan is the author of
'Corvette American Legend
1954-55 Production', 'Corvette
Restoration and Technical
Guide 1, 1953-62', and a
similar book for the model
years from 1963 through '67.


But to most of us, he is known
as the Corvette go-to-guy. ,
when we have questions or
want advice. Recently he was
asked by the U.S. Postal
Service to be the technical
consultant when they minted
a new Corvette postage stamp.
Nolan was proudly showing
off his vintage 1953 Corvette.
"I have had this '53 Vette for
over 30 years," Nolan said.
"My first Corvette was a '54,
but I totaled it a few months
after buying it."
While we talked we were
repeatedly interrupted by
folks shouting questions from
beyond the retaining ropes.
Pointing to the three carbs on
the '53 Corvette, a man asked,
"Are those three two-barrel
carburetors?"
"They are one-barrel
carburetors," Nolan said. He


went on to explain the
function and purpose of
many of the parts not found
on later model Corvettes. It
was easy to see why so many
folks look to him for advice,
and fun to see how willingly
he helps everyone includ-
ing the post office.
In the parking lot behind
Nolan Adams' car sat a sea of
Corvettes. We were busy
taking photos when a 1965
three-window coupe caught
our eye. John and Denny
Gross were working feverishly
to wipe the rain water off
their car. A shower had
threatened the show but
luckily moved off over the
lake, leaving the show free to
go on and car owners with a
lot of detailing to do.
"We are here with the
Corvette Club of Metro


Detroit," John said. The
retired Army officer worked as
he talked, knowing his car
was about to be inspected by
thousands of folks attending
the show. "We have over 195
Corvettes here with our
group." he explained. "They
consist of folks from our local
club and other clubs from all
over the country." We were
pretty sure Don and Denny's
'Vette would stand up well in
the competition.
As we retuned to the
teaming avenue, it was
obvious that a lot of gas and
tires were being expended in
pursuit of the ultimate Dream
Cruise. Mark and Jane Taylor
were cruising Woodward in
their sweet 1923 T-Bucket.
The Chevy-powered ride was
gulping gallons of gas with

GM's headquarters is a prominent part of the scenery along Detroit's
Woodward Avenue. .


Locals and tourists alike lined the street, watching the seemingly end-
less parade of ultra-cool rolling stock.

Sun photics by Russ Moore
It's a frog! It's a mushroom! No, it's a BMW
Isitta. Cute little thing, ain't it?


Cobras and Cobra enthusiasts turned out in force. Some of the cars were the genuine article,
others were kit cars but they were all nice rides. Seeing a string of Cobras bumper-to-bumper
was a treat, even if the majority were replicas. /


10-year-old Robert Brady of Goodrich Michigan
was riding a 2003 Saylor Scooter. This was
Robert's first Dream Cruise experience and being
able to get around on the scooter made his day.

* CRUISE
From page 4

each turn around the course. They both
answered at once when asked if the price
of fuel was a deterrent to participation in
the event this year. "No," they said. "We
would not miss this over a few gallons of
gas. We have never missed one yet!"
We found them later in a gas station still
smiling and giving the thumbs up. Their
car was flanked at the pumps by Jim
Ktakos' 1969 Chevy Chevelle. The Chev-
elle's monster 540ci engine is force-fed
fuel through an 871 blower and devoured
by two 1400:cfmn four-barrel carburetors.
"I think my car gets about one mile per
gallon," he smiled. 'And this baby does
not run on the cheap stuff."
The rain and the price of gas did not
keep folks with every kind of ride imagin-
able from being part of the 2005 Dream
Cruise. From a full-blown '50s milk truck
to folks cruising on their bikes, all were
welconle.Vickie Statoh and Craig
Markiewicz cruised by on their brand-
new Schwinn Sting Ray bicycles. I talked
with them as they scoped out a black-on-
black Chevy Camaro Z-28.
"We have not missed a cruise in seven
years." Mark said.
"We parted (with) our 1977 Lincoln and
rode our bikes up from Eight Mile Road,"
Vickie said. "It's fun and we don't get stuck
in traffic or pay for gas."
Jerri Ritzow from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
was showing off a ride of a different kind,
and not a hot rod or muscle car his ride
was a Saleen S7. We had stopped by to
join the folks atop the Saleen 18-wheeler
that had been converted to arfobserva-
tion deck to talk about Saleen Mustangs,
but Jerri's Saleen S7 stole the show.
"This is a true race car," he said. "The S7
is the most powerful car you drive on the
street. The car comes with 750 horsepow-
er." He drew out the-word horsepower and
smiled as he walked rie around the car.
"This car is fast and develops a lot of
power; top speed is over 235 miles per
hour, and this one goes from 0 to 60 in 2.8
seconds," Jerri said./As he told us you
could see that in his mind he was flying
around some distant corner at a speed no
one will ever see in the dream cruise. He
told us that he'd be back next year this
was his fourth cruise and added, "This
is one of my four performance cars."
The folks that braved the rain and
weather to make this year's event came for
all kinds of reasons. We stopped and
shared a cup of coffee with Yvonne Richter,
who told us it was her third cruise. When
we asked her what car she was showing
she explained that she was there with her
girlfriend Sue Remisiewicz just to enjoy the
show and take it all in. As we parted she
said, "Well, the real reason I come every
year is to meet nice men with muscle cars."
When asked what was her favorite, she
smiled and blushed: "No man is ever alone
in a red Mustang converdble."

Beachfront home goes





on market in Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Once upon a time, not that
many years ago, there were
homes and even empty lots
for sale along the beach. I
remember looking at "p'.p"
homes with my parents in the
early 1970s. Those days all but
vanished in that decade when
developers went on a condo-
building spree that forever
changed the ], u i i:, i. .ru- along
the beach.
In today's Venice, less than
10 percent of the homes on
the beach are -.ui ,- f.:,i_ ]'.
houses. One of those, at 217
The Esplanade South, has
been listed with Michael
Saunders l;--.i1i",i Helen
Moore. If location is every-
thing in real estate, this loca-
tion is prime. Just south of
Venice Avenue, the house is
within walking distance of the
historic avenue and not an
unreasonable walk from
downtown. No one can lid I
across the street on the beach
and, other than fiJ-.-.', Es-
planade residents, there is lit-
tle traffic on the .,nci <' A
street that runs in front of the
home.
The 3,851-square-foot
two-story house has four
bedrooms and three baths,
plus a number of bonus areas
from which one can enjoy
spectacular views of both the

rising and the ,.fi ti :;. sun.
To the back ',f rt f 1hleoi sF is
an attached two-car garage
and a caged ir. 'r.und lap
pool..
A i 11, is, protects guests
from sun and rain at the
home's main entrance along
the north side of the house.
The entire front of the house
(t-dijiu:, a wide expanse of
windows on the lower level,
:t-.~dhb-,g from the enclosure
of a one-time front porch.
A stone fireplace is the
frc..d1 poini of the living room.
It and the dining el functions
as a large great room space.
The entry and main living
space feature wood flooring,
although there is white tile
flooring in the nearby kitch-


en.
Also on the main floor are
two bedrooms and baths.
A wood staircase leads to
the -l, i, r- !.rh i':-.' sec-
ond fnoo., bakc':'r,. off the
master suite, exercise room
and home office or fourth
bedroom.
There is a o, r, p -,-.
whirlpool tub in the master
bath plus a wall of mirrors
above the ,inir- area and
walk-in ;.-i.;. ':..: shower
space.
Windows along the west
I.1 of the bedroom, bath
and home office offer near-
panoramic .if ,f r}, beach
and are fitted with custom
blinds to keep indoor 1.0,r

The home-'has been listed
with Moore for I.' ....s
and can be seen by j.in' -it
ment. To drive by the house,
take Venice Avenue to
Armada. Travel south on
Armada to Granada then west
on Granada to Valencia. Go
one block south to Ocala
Street, which goes west to the
South Esplanade, a one-way
street that goes north from
Ocala, becoming the North
Esplanade at Venice Avenue.
Call Moore at 485-5421, 308-
7777 or 724-2030.
