VCC subcontractor at odds




with Magnum Builders


Both sides say the issue
is resolved, but their
varying memories of
their conversation have
left the city manager
questioning the
painter's "ethics."

BY IJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

A dispute caused by cost
overruns on the paint job at
Venice Community Center
has been resolved.
However, the dubious e-
mail warning sent by Mag-
num Builders to city officials
continues to be circulated.
VCC project manager N like
Baltzer accuses Al Sears of
Service Painting of threaten-
ing to use his Venice govern-
ment connections to "go over
to the people at the city and'
get paid." The e-mail warning
goes on to say that Magnum's
"experience to date. with
Service Painting" has them
"asking for many extras that
we have denied."
All of these come as serious
accusations against the Sara-,
sota-based company known
for painting Waterford's two
condominium towers, the
Publix on EastVenice Avenue,
the music center at Venice
High School and the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce
building.
"That's not fair. He should-
n't have done that," Sears said
of Baltzer's e-mail. "He made
a mountain out of a molehill.
"We do high-profile work,
and we're a good company.
We're not a fly-by-night com-
pany."
Different recollections
The e-mail was sent out
late Wednesday to City En-
gineer Nancy Woodley, who
wrote to City Manager Marty
Black that she supports Mag-
num Builders conclusions.
Service Painting claims it
had to do an additional $4,019
worth of interior paint work.

BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER

After a five-year absence
from the United States, 28-
year old Matthew Kudriaszow
has come home.
Kudriaszow, who is a
Venice High School graduate,
is happy to be back for some
down time after serving in
Germany and Ihaq. :
"It's been hard," Pamela
Kudriaszow, Matthew's moth-
er, said about not seeing her
son.
Kudriaszow joined the
U.S. Army in 1998, but could-
n't put his finger, on what
exactly inspired him to serve.
"I suppose I wanted to get
out of town and get little dis-
cipline," Kudriaszow said. "It
was a spur-of-the-moment
thing."
The past five years
In late 2000, Kudriaszow,
whose specialty is communi-
cations, was sent to Germany,
where he stayed for the next
three years. During his stay,
his mother and older brother,
Jason, were able to visit him
once. That was the only time
his family saw him untiljust a
few weeks ago, when he
returned home.
After his stay in Germany,
Kudriaszow was sent directly
to Iraq in February of 2004.


Land-buy referendum could be conducted by mail


In 1999, voters approved a .25 mill tax through
2019 and a $53 million bond cap. The county may
try to extend the program until 2029 and raise the
bond cap to $303 million.

What if Sarasota County
held an election and nobody

showed up at the polls?
It could happen this au-
tumn if 242,000 ballots with
one referendum question are
mailed out to registered Vot-

feed all the returns through
computers.
"I've nevet, done a mail-out

.So far, -commissioner Da-

He has proposed a more
modest increase in the bond

who were also from the Sara-
sota area.
"We didn't know each

"We met in Iraq and became
friends."
. While in Tikrit, Kudriaszow
continued his communica-

convoy missions.
"We would go from Tikrit

During his service in Iraq,
he learned that it wasn't guns

Higher Hatchett bridge has fewer bridge openings


A higher bridge means fewer sights like this, as a sailboat clears the Hatchett Creek Bridge.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER
Cynics believe boat cap-
tains on the Intracoastal
Waterway enjoy making
drawbridges open because
making motorists wait is a
power trip.
If it's true, fewer captains
are enjoying it today because
the Hatchett Creek Bridge
was raised to 32 feet from 14
feet, meaning fewer bridge
openings. A lot fewer.
"With the old bridge at 14
feet, there were, about 300
openings a month, 10 a
day," Florida Department of
Transportation spokeswoman
Cindy Clemmons-Adente
said. "Now, with the new
bridge at 32-34 feet depend-
ing on the tide, there are
about 100 openings a month,
or three or four a day."
Boat captains actually
don't make the bridge go up.
That is up to the bridge
tender, who waits for a call
from- the captain that he .
wants to pass under the span.
The Hatchett Creek Bridge
has timed openings every 20
minutes, on the, hour, 20
minutes and 40 minutes after
the hour from 7 a.m.-4:20 p.m.

There are no openings on
weekdays from 4:25 p.m.-

On weekends and holidays
the Hatchett Creek Bridge is
.opened every 15 minutes, on
demand. It is open on de-
mand from 6-7 p.m. every
day.
On the adjacent Venice
Avenue Bridge daily, on fed-
eral holidays and weekends
from 5:35 p.m.-7 a.m. the

There are no openings be-
tween 4:35 p.m.-5:35 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
Otherwise it is on timed
openings, at 10 minutes after
the hour, on the half hour
and at 50 minutes after the
hour.
Right of way
Some captains claim the
maritime law that vessels
have the right of way is rea-
son enough for the bridges
to open on demand and hold
up surface traffic.
"I've got a boat, 38-footer,'"
a visitor from Chicago said"


"Any captain who can't hold
his boat against a current to
wait for a bridge to open on a
schedule ought to sell his
boat."
Other veteran mariners
said that the right-of-way
rule as it pertains to opening
bridges is nonsense.
They said the right-of-way
navigational rule on seas and
rivers has nothing to do with
bridges opening.
In fact, a cursory search of
maritime and navigational
rules on the Internet showed
no mention about vessel right
of way over land traffic.
Even on water, right of
way is not absolute. About.
com states:
"No vessel has the absolute
right of way through another
vessel. Common sense must
prevail, even if it means
breaking all the rules ... in
order to avoid danger and/or
a collision."

I just wanted to give up," resi-
dent James Blackie Jr. said to
code board members. Blackie
was criticizing code officer'
John Patek, who cited him for
yard waste and other debris
being, piled up in his 749
Guild Drive yard. I
Patek said some improve-
ments were made, but the
resident was moving quite a
bit of the debris to the neigh-
boring undeveloped lot he
owns because it's a Sarasota
County enclave. The, code
board gave Blackie until Oct.
3 to clean tip the city side or
else face $25 a day fines.
Sarasota .County code en-


forcement would be notified
of the other property.
Tall tower The radio
tower remains at 113 La-
Palma Court, so code board
members followed through
with fines of $100 per day for
six days. Owner Stewart.Haag
'was cited because the radio
tower exceeds the 35-foot
height limit and requires a
city permit. The daily fines
will continue until either the
tower is removed or a permit
Sis obtained.

Alliance invites public input at gulf workshop.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Sarasota residents who are
upset about red .tide, dead
fish, sick sea turtles and toxic
wastewater discharges can
express their view on Sept. 14
at Mote Marine Laboratory
when a stakeholders work-
shop meeting will be held by
a five-state consortium known
as the Gulf of Mexico Alliance.
"We are seeking input from
residents, businesses, scien-
tists and interest groups," said,
Catherine Corbett, a senior sci-
entist with the Charlotte Har-
bor Estuary Program. "Anyone
can register until Sept. 5. We
have invited all our estuary
program members to attend."
The Alliance consists of five


states Alabama, Florida,
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Texas that border the Gulf
of Mexico. It was organized by
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in re-
sponse to a U.S. Ocean Com-
mission .report released last
year that included gulf-related
recommendations.
Chief among them is an
integrated management ap-
proach to addressing the Gulf
of Mexico's overall environ-
mental health. Input from
workshops held in all five states
will be reflected in a long-term
Action Plan to be announced at
a Corpus- Christi, Texas, meet-
ing in November..
"We will definitely be at
the Sept. 14 meeting," said
Gary Raulerson, Ph.D., a sen-
ior scientist for the Sarasota.


Bay Estuary Program. "A simi-
lar one was held in Tampa last
week. These meetings are to
get people all around the gulf.
energized and prepared to
work in a regional system."
Networking
The Gulf of Mexico is the
ninth largest water body in
the world. It accounts for half
the wetlands in the United
States, with 3,400 miles of
shoreline from Cape Sable,
Fla., to the Yucatan Peninsula.
Gov. Jeb Bush asked the
other gulf state governors to
participate at meeting in
Naples last year.
"Our marine resources are
the foundation for Florida's
quality of life and ocean-
based economy," said Florida


Department of Environmen-
tal Protection Secretary Col-
leen M. Castille. "We will work
with our federal and state
partners to establish a frame-
work for long-term protection
of the Gulf of Mexico."
Governrhent scientists
have outlined five priorities as
starting points: 1) Improving
and protecting water quality;
2) Restoring coastal wetlands
and estuarine ecosystems; 3)
Reducing pollution and nutri-
ent loading; 4) Identifying gulf
habitats; and 5) Expanding
environmental education.
"We considered hosting
the event in Port Charlotte
or Punta Gorda," Corbett said,
"but our facilities are limited
and some are still damaged

Wal-Mart scheduled for Oct. 26 opening


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


With its scheduled opening
less than two months away,
Wal-Mart has hired about 60
percent of the 500 employees
it says it will need to operate
the SuperCenter in Osprey.
Co-manager Bobby Balder.
and Store Manager John
Weiber will describe store
operations to the community
on Sept. 6. They will address
a meeting of the Osprey Civic,
Association about the jobs they
wish to fill, the wage scale and
health benefits. The meeting
is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
at Victory Baptist Church.
Unlike many cities and
towns nationwide that have
resisted Wal-Mart stores, Os-
prey fought for the 210,000-
square-foot SuperCenter, on
what had been a garbage-


strewn tract on U.S. 41 and
Bay Street, for almost three
years.
From the first petition to
rezone land to allow con-
struction of the store, resi-
dents had joined forces with
the developer in behalf of the
project. They lobbied county
departments and the com-
mission to endorse the store,
and organized homeowners
associations to support the
project
"We'd been frustrated for
years," said Judith Johnson,
chair of the Osprey Revital-
ization Committee. "Busines-
ses along 41 were closing.
Some of those remaining were
shabby-looking. We needed a
nucleus to draw commercial
activity to the community.
The SuperCenter has already
accomplished that, even be-
fore it opens."


Wage numbers
Balder is expected to tell
residents that "other than a
few experienced employees
transferred from'other stores,
we have been recruiting
new employees from Osprey,
Nokomis, Laurel, primarily.
Plus some from Sarasota."
The store is scheduled to
open Oct. 26, he said.
'Wages for full-time posi-
tions will average $9.68 an
hour. Employees are consid-
ered full-time if they work
more than 34 hours a week.
They become eligible for the
company's health benefits
after completing 180 days of
service.
Part-timers must stay on
their jobs for two years before
qualifying for health benefits.
Balder estimated that 35 per-
cent of all employees in the
Osprey store will work part-


time.
Students, retirees and sec-
ond-income providers are ex-
pected to make up the bulk of
the SuperCenter workforce.
Average household income
in Osprey has been estimated
at about $76,000 for the unin-
corporated town's approxi-
mately 23,000 population.
That figure and the current
unemployment rate of 3.2
percent in Sarasota County
prompted Jay Leland, vice-
chair of the Osprey Revital-
ization Committee to wonder
"if they can staff the store."
"I've heard that Beall's
Department Stores and Venice
Regional Hospital, among
other big employers, just can't
find candidates for jobs be-
cause of the. rising cost of liv-
ing in Southwest Florida," said
Leland. "Will it be any differ-
ent for Wal-Mart?"


sota is centrally located and
Mote Marine Laboratory has
an excellent meeting facility."
The alliance reportedly
plans to implement its long-
range plan through existing
organizations such,as the
Tampa Bay, Sarasota Bay and
Charlotte Harbor estuary pro-
grams and government
agencies that deal with envi-
ronmental issues.
"It's my understanding the
alliance will work through
existing, networks," Corbett


said. "Whatever happens; on
land affects the Gulf of Mex-
ico. Fresh water affects estu-;
aries and estuaries affect the
gulf. This Sept. 14 meeting
will be the last one in South-
west Florida."

Rezoning to bring


in the movies

A site at Laurel and Knights Trail roads is up for
approval Tuesday to allow Waterford Companies
to build a retail and residential community,
complete with 20-screen movie theater.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


There's been little talk
since Waterford Companies
President Mike Miller an-
nounced six months ago he
was bringing the movies back
to Venice.
The 20-screen version of
that plan starts Tuesday as the
Venice Planning Commission
will consider granting a re-
zoning request for Triple
Diamond Commerce Plaza's
nearly 74 acres at northeast-
ern corner of the Laurel-
Knights Trail intersection.
Currently, the land is vac-
ant. Waterford Companies
will acquire the land, if the
rezoning goes through, to
build a retail and residential
community, complete with
20-screen movie theater.'
The application would
change the area to "commer-
.cial, general" instead of the
current "planned industrial
development district." The
new zoning would allow the
mixed retail and residential
elements.
City staff recommends ap-
proval of the petition. The
only requirement is that
developers follow the Vene-
tian Gateway District arch-
itectural standards.
This rezoning petition
does not require submission
of a concept plan ofwhat the
development will look like.


Theaters too
The second movie house
will be at the renovated Gal-
leria Plaza in South Venice, at
the former Kash 'N Karry gro-
cery store behind the British
Open Pub. Plans are to have
that 12-theater multiplex
open by the upcoming holi-
day season, and the one on
Laurel Road open late next
year.
Operation of the two
movie houses would be by
Frank Theatres, which owns
and operates more than'100
screens in New Jersey. The
company has recently been
expanding into North Caro-
lina, Delaware, Pennsylvania
and now Florida, according
to a previous story.
Before Miller's announce-
ment in March, city council
members had heard nonstop
complaints the area's only the-
ater Venetian 6 shutting
down so a new Lowe's store
could be built.
Even more frustrating was
how that happened in South
Venice outside of council's
jurisdiction.
Rick Tacy, council member
and ex officio to the planning
commission, said in March
the city should not delay ap-
proval of the new movie
theater.
"We can put the pressure
on staff to meet (developers)
half way or help expedite
things, but that's about it,"


Tacy said in a March 23 story.
"The people that wanted the
theater have proven that
there is a market here for it,
even though (businesses)
doubted it."
Also Tuesday
The Venice Planning Com-
mission meets at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday at city hall. Here's
what else is on the agenda:
Traffic update Plan-
ning staff will update commis-
sioners on road projects in
and around the Venice area.
Most of these updates mirror a
story in the Aug. 31 Gondolier
Sun. Other updates include
widening Interstate 75 from
four to eight lanes between
Laurel Road and Jacaranda
Boulevard by 2012; and land
acquisition study for U.S. 41
Bypass widening done by
October, but no date for
construction.
Villa Venezia Site plan
approval for the 24,883-
square-foot retail plaza on the
northern side of East Venice
Avenue, just west of Auburn
Road. There would be 19 indi-
vidual retail units on the 2.3-
acre site. The planning com-
mission continued this case a
year ago amid concerns it did
not conform to the intent of
the Venetian Gateway District.
Villa Veneto Site and
development plan approval
for four, two-story buildings
housing a total of 16 condo-
miniums. The development is
at the intersection of Golf,
Guild and Fairway drives.'

with nonprofit agencies to
coordinate their disaster relief
efforts for those affected by
Hurricane Katrina.
"We are very pleased that
the community's nonprofit
agencies are collaborating
their disaster relief efforts,"
said Sarasota County Human
Services Manager Chip Taylor.
"This allows our residents to
be involved in an effective
way."
Donations. Financial con-
tributions are preferred; how-
ever, other types of donations
are being collected by the fol-
lowing agencies:
The Salvation Army, 954-
HOPE, located at 1400 10th
St., Sarasota, 8 a.m. to. 4:30
p.m., seven days a week, will
accept cash donations, and
any size donation of personal
hygiene items, baby products
and non-perishable food.
Clothing and water are not
needed at this time.
The Southwest Florida
Chapter of the American Red
Cross, is accepting financial
contributions for the Disaster
Relief Fund. Checks should be


made out to the American
Red Cross Disaster Relief
Fund and may be mailed to

SCAT meeting on
route changes set
Sarasota County Area
Transit (SCAT) will hold pub-
lic meetings Sept. 6 and 8 to
get comments on proposed
minor changes toRoutes 1; 6,
12 and 15 that are needed to


establish 30-minute service
on Routes 1 and 6.
The Sept. 6 meeting at
Fruitville Public Library, 100
Coburn Road, Sarasota, will
focus on proposed changes to
Route 1 (Fruitville) and Route
15 (Airport/Cattlemen). The
Sept. 8 meeting at Faith
Presbyterian Church, 1201
Beneva Road, Sarasota, will
highlight recommended
changes on Route 6 (Be.neva)
and Route 12 (Lockwood).
SCAT staff will be prepared to
answer questions about all
the proposed route changes
at both meetings, which are
scheduled from 4-6 p.m.
SCAT has committed to
establishment of 30-minute
service on Beneva, Route 6.
Under the plan, there will be



defrigeratorbma
goes ere^^^^H


minor changes to Routes 6
and 12 in the vicinity of Tuttle
Avenue,. 12th Street, 17th
Street and Lockwood Ridge
Road. Buses will be rerouted
along streets in this area, and
bus service will be removed
from the segment of Tuttle
Avenue between 12 and 17
streets. The changes are
needed to increase bus oper-
ational safety through the
neighborhoods and to im-
prove on-time reliability of
the routes.
SCAT also. proposes to
establish 30-minute service
on Fruitville, Route 1. Under
the plan, Route 1 will be split
into two routes in the vicinity
of Honore Avenue and
Fruitville Road, with one
route operating from the


Downtown Transfer Station
and the other from an east
county transfer location. This
will require minor changes to
Route 15 in the vicinity of
Fruitville Road, McIntosh
Road, Honore Avenue and
Cattlemen Road. The recom-
mended changes will create a
new local bus service for the
Fruitville area on both sides of
Interstate 75.
Although an exact time
frame has not been estab-
lished yet, the new 30-minute
service on Routes 1- and 6
could be implemented by the
end of this year.
For more information on
the proposed route changes,

GRAND OPENING
Venice Community Center will reopen to the public with a celebration at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 16. The area's
premier facility for concerts and events has been closed for 16 months while undergoing a 54.28 mil-
lion renovation.
During the Sept. 16 event, dedication of the new U.S. flag will honor Theodora Bartlett. She donated
the new flag for VCC in honor of her late husband, Burke, who donated the first flag when the VCC
was built in 1977.
The Venice Symphony String Quartet will perform in the lobby, and the Friends of the Venice
Community Center will lead tours. Food and snacks will be provided by Steve Harner, owner of Crow's
Nest restaurant.
Other planned events include speeches, a performance by the Venice Concert Band and dancing.
Venice Public Information Officer Pam Johnson said the renovated and expanded center will finally
provide the space local groups need for events.
"Its increased space and beauty will add many opportunities for its use by the community," she said.
"Over the years, many nonprofits have had to hold their benefits in facilities outside of the city because
there was no space here to accommodate them. This project changes that situation."


VCC from page 1 A
Sears contends it was the
result of the job being rushed
by Magnum Builders, while
Baltzer said most of the
repainting was the fault of
Service Painting not waiting
for other subcontractors to
finish their jobs.'
At no time was the quality
of work ever questioned by
Magnum Builders, according
to Baltzer.
The issue was resolved
Thursday night without
increasing the bill to taxpay-
ers, according to Sears and
Baltzer.
"This is a nonissue, as far
as we're concerned," Baltzer
said. "You're basically report-,
ing on something that is no
longer an issue." -


The e-mail warning from,
Baltzer does remain an issue,
especially as it continued to
be circulated around Venice
City Hall and to all of the
council members.
Sears contends he did not
make any threats, while
Baltzer remembers some-
thing quite different.
"I have exactly no doubt in
my mind those words were
spoken," Baltzer said. 'Al was
upset at the time because we
were denying his request for,
additional money. I'm sure he
doesn't remember a lot of the
words he was saying."
Doing the job right
Even the city manager had
concerns about the "threats"
of using government contacts
to get paid.


"It's not a good ethical
practice to take tactics like
that," Black said. "That's just
not good business practice.
... It does bother me from an
ethical perspective."
There wasn't going to be a
battle between Magnum
Builders and Service Painting,
but now Sears is not sure after
being read the e-mail by
Baltzer.
"We didn't run away from
our work," Sears said, "We did
the job and figured we would
resolve it later.
"Being in Venice, I wanted
to make sure that place
(Venice Community Center)
was done right."

Riverview comeback stuns Venice

Venice played excellent
football for most of the first
three quarters, keeping a
very good Riverview team
back on its heels.
"We had 18 first downs to
only eight for them," said
Coleman, whose team out-


gained Riverview by a 380-
220 margin. "We took it to
them for most of the game."
Venice used -two long
touchdown runs by bruising
running back Tony Charles
to build a 12-0 halftime lead.
The advantage went out to
19-0 after the Indians took
the second half kickoff and
put together a 13-play, 80-
yard scoring drive. The drive
ate up the- first seven min-
utes of the third quarter.
"We took almost eight
minutes off the clock,"
Coleman said. "They had
second and long and Tony
had a chance for an intercep-
tion. Then their quarterback
scrambled for a first down.
They only had one first down
up until then."
E' lusive running back Har-
ry Scott, a tall speedster
blessed with super cutback
moves, got the Rams on the
board with a 33-yard touch-
down run.
Then came the only turn-
over of the night one that
definitely hurt the Indians.

Rivulets of thought from



my achey-breaky head


My mind is spinning. I'm
not sure why. I have been
hearing some noise from the
street. It seems that some
people are under the impres-
sion that I make this stuff
up. 'I assure you nothing
could be farther from the
truth. All the stories that I
write about are actual events
that did happen at one time
or another. I mean, c'mon
how could I make this up?
I talked to my monster-in
law last weekend. While she
was at church Sunday
morning, a few parishioners
were talking about my col-
umn. One of them referred to
me as a fat-faced guy real
Christian of ya there buddy. .-,
They also mentioned that
they thought I must be single
because of the way I write
about the plaintiff. Not true.
I am a very happily married
man. I do not hate my ex-
wife. I wish she was a better
person, but that's a subject
for an arbitrator to dpide. I
will take certain liberties for
comedic effect, but trust me
when I say you have no clue.
I am also proud to be the
father of two great kids.
Nothing makes me happier

than to spend time with
them. They're growing up
very quickly. Only five years of
payments left. I also have a
wonderful wife who couldn't
be more supportive of me. In
fact it was at her urging that I
ever attempted writing at all.
So to those of you who
think I'm being mean, you're
right. I am a cantankerous
young man. If you'd like to
read happy syrupy stuff, just
move, on over to' the Our
Town section. I'm sure there's
a nice recipe dr an old Dave
Barry column for you to read.
Venice City Champion-
ship: October 1-2, Lake Ven-
ice will hold it's annual City
golf championship. Entry
forms may be obtained eith-


er at the course or online at
www.mscgqlf.org. Get your
entry in as poon as possible
because the course needs the
money. The two day event
features some of the best
players in the area and is
always a memorable week-
end. For example, I'll never
forget the 97 I posted one
year or the 69 either. Golf is
not a game for the mentally
balanced.
Insert joke here: A priest
gets up one Sunday morning
and decides to play golf in-
stead of delivering his ser-
mon. God and an angel are
watching as he tees it up.
The angel asks God what he
is going to do to punish the
priest. God says nothing. The
priest plays the round of his
life making 17 straight pars.
The angel asks God again
what he is going to do about
this travesty. Surely the angel
thinks God has something
nasty in store for him at the
18th hole. God says nothing.
The priest birdies the final
hole to shoot 71. Then when
the angel asks again about
the punishment, God smiles
and says "Who's he gonna
tell?"

Venice tried to regain mo-

Local Salvation Army prepped for Katrina duty


Capt. John Fuller says they are waiting for the call
to load the canteen and trailer and take to the
road toward the devasted Gulf Coast.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


The Venice Salation Army
disaster team is waiting for a
phone call that could sent it
to storm-ravaged Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama.
"They want us to stay put
for nho because of those two
storms brewing in the
Atlantic," Capt. John Fuller


said. "If they develop, we
would be needing our can-
teens right here."
Friday afternoon, tropical
depression Lee was dissipat-'
ing over the central Atlantic
and no further advisories
were expected unless the sys-
tem regenerated.
Tropical storm Maria, the
13th named storm of the sea-
son, was more than 1,000


miles southeast of Bermuda
Friday afternoon. Forecasters
said it posed no threat to
land.
If they get a call from head-
quarters, Fuller and at least
two other volunteers will
make the 1,100-mile trip to
the stricken area. They will
drive a camper-like canteen
(mobile kitchen) pulling a
trailer that holds the food.
Fuller said the local disas-
ter team generally gets about
a 90-minute lead time.
The Venice corps is ready
to hit the road to the gulf


states, he said.
"We're set," Fuller said.
"We got the food delivered, all
we gotta do is load the can-
teen and the trailer."
Fuller said that may be the
easy part.
"We've heard reports that
snipers are shooting at the
canteens as they come into
those areas," Fuller said.
"We've been told if that hap-
pens, to get armed guards."
Additionally, many of the
roads leading into those
stricken areas are not cleared
yet.


Salvation Army camps in
at least four Florida locations
are preparing to receive hun-
dreds, if not thousands of
refugees.
Fuller said the camps, plus
one at Orlando, can accom-
modate 3,000-5,000 refugees.
There are 72 canteens from
the army's 15-southem terri-
tory states being readied for
service. He said Florida has 29
canteens.
Fuller said his disaster
team is prepared to stay in the
area for up to 21 days, serving
two meals a day.


"We can push, out up to
300 cooked meals a day," he
said. "If we just do sandwich-
es and chips, we can do 500."
Part of the logistics will be
finding a suitable warehouse
for the food and supplies, he
said.
He said the team will have
sleeping bags in case they
cannot find accommoda-
tions.

NVFD fire chief fired


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Nokomis Volunteer Fire
Department Chief Dave
Kemerer was fired earlier this
summer three weeks after
being put on administrative
leave.
"There had been reports
he had acted in ways not con-
sistent with the best interests
of the department," NVFD's
Sarasota attorney Nevin
Weiner said. "He indicated a
willingness to separate and
he has. He was terminated,
effective June 15."
Kemerer was replaced as
chief by former NVFD As-
sistant Chief Michael D'An-
gelo, according to Weiner.
D'Angelo could not be
reached for comment.

Complaints
Kemerer was put on paid
administrative leave May 26,
according to Fire Commis-
sioner and Board Chairman
Bob Markuson.
At the time, Markuson only
said the board had gotten let-
ters from firefighters com-
plaining about department
morale. He did not reveal
whether Kemerer's name was
mentioned in the complaints.
He said there would be an
investigation and that it was
best to put Kemerer on leave
during the investigation.
Markuson also said in May
that the seven-member board
was "reviewing" Kemerer's
six-month contract.
Markuson could not be
reached for comment late
Thursday.
Kemerer was the only paid


member of the 36-man de-
partment. His salary was not
disclosed.
Kemerer could not be
reached for comment.

The little department
that could
Under the leadership of
Kemerer's predecessor, for-
mer Chief Scott Lane, the
NVFD received numerous
accolades as one of the best
volunteer fire departments in
the nation. Lane left the
department last year to
accept a full-time paid posi-
tion as a trainer for the
Englewood Fire Department.
Lane was NVFD chief for
17 years. He was well liked
and highly respected by his
own firefighters, as well as by
firefighters and chiefs from
professional fire departments
across the state.
'Professional' volunteers
Fire victims have used
words like "professional, ded-
icated, and gentlemen" to de-
scribe NVFD firefighters who
have saved their lives and
their homes.
Many firefighters fresh out
of the academy go to work for
the NVFD because of the
department's highly rated on-
the-job training. They said it
gives them an opportunity to
hone their skills and learn
new ones while waiting for
future assignments.
NVFD firefighters are re-
cruited by professional fire
departments statewide.

Tow to Go available Labor Day weekend


STAFF REPORT


AAA Auto Club South and
-Budweiser are including this
Labor Day weekend in their
"Tow to Go" program, which
provides a free ride hone and
tow to people may have had
too much to drink.
The program started six
years ago, providing ridds
from Thanksgiving to the
New Year's Day holiday sea-
son. AAA estimates the pro-
gram has kept almost ,5,000
potential drunken drivers off
the road since it legan.
AAA projects that a record
number of travelers 34.5
million nationwide will
take to the roads this week-
end, and the program will be
in effect to help make those
roads safer across the
Southeast.
Tow to Go provides a ride
home and tow, free of charge,
to individuals who may have
had too much alcohol.
People can call (800) AAA-
HELP (222-4357).
Tow to Go now covers the
following events and holidays
throughout the year: Super
Bowl weekend, St. Patrick's
Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mem-
orial Day weekend, Inde-
pendence Day weekend, La-
bor Day weekend, Halloween,
Thanksgiving and New Year's
Day.
"We are thrilled to offer
ToW to Go to cover other cele-
brating occasions during the
year," Ed Schatzman, senior
vice president of automotive
services for AAA Auto Club
South, said in a statement.
"This program's impact is far-
reaching when you consider


the countless motorists it pro-
tects who would otherwise
have been left in the path of a
potential drunk driver."'
John Kaestner, vice presi-
dent of Consumer Affairs for
Anheuser-Busch, added, "An-
heuser-Busch is proud to
team up with AAA to help
save lives and prevent drunk
driving.
"We are extremely pleased
that we can continue to work
together to provide this vital
service during the holidays
and now at these additional
times throughout the year."
Since 1982, Anheuser-
Busch and its wholesalers
have invested more than $500
million in national advertis-
ing campaigns and commu-
nity-based programs like Tow
to Go to promote responsible
drinking and prevent all
forms of alcohol abuse, in-
cluding drunken driving.
Tow to Go is offered in
Atlanta, Savannah, Nashville
and throughout Florida.
Any adult who needs a tide
home from a bar or restau-
rant during the events and
holidays listed above may
simply call the above number,
and AAA will dispatch a tow
truck and take both the driver
and the vehicle home.
AAA and, Budweiser also
encourage individuals to plan
for a safe celebration by being
or choosing a designated dri-
ver.

Coping with tight gas supplies


Gas prices hit $3 a gallon at area stations.


STAFF REPORT

There have been spot out-
ages of gasoline at various
stations in many parts of the
country. No one knows how
many stations have been
affected or how many more
might see outages in the days
ahead.
These outages have gener-
ally been caused by one of
two factors:
1. Panic buying of gasoline
by consumers worrying
about possible outages or spi-
raling prices has caused a
rush of demand at stations
that otherwise would have
had ample supplies of gaso-
line. This is akin to a grocery
store running out of bread
and milk prior to a snow-
storm or hurricane.
2. Some nonbranded sta-
tions (convenience stores,
grocery stores that sell gas,
"discount" gas stations,
mom-and-pop stations) have
not received deliveries of
gasoline as distributors limit
their reduced supplies of gas-
oline to just their branded
stations.
We currently have an' im-
balance in supply and de-
mand for gasoline in parts of
the United States due to refin-
ery and pipeline outages


caused by Hurricane Katrina
having reduced supply. Panic
buying actually increases
demand, further stretching
this imbalance.
AAA encourages motorists
to reduce their gasoline con-
sumption until the supply
network (oil deliveries,
refineries, pipelines, fuel dis-
tributors and gas stations)
can recover, unless you are
traveling for Labor Day week-
end.
Q-and-A
Following are some ques-
tions motorists may be ask-.
ing:
What is the government
doing about it? The president
has made the Strategic Pet-
roleum Reserve available to
supply oil to refiners. This has
helped calm crude oil mar-
kets, but does not address the
issue of refinery outages.
The Environmental Pro-
tection Agency has allowed
summer fuel requirements to
end prematurely (ahead of
the Sept. 15 deadline), which
allows greater flexibility in
which blends of gasoline can
be used in which parts of the
country. This will provide.
some relief at the local level,
but does not fix the larger
supply-demand problem.


Should we consider taking
long trips? There's no guaran-
tee you won't have problems
finding gasoline during your
trip. At this point, there is no
reason to believe you'll see
any regional outages of gaso-
line, and the vast majority of
the nation's gas stations have
gas. Unfortunately, there's no
certainty that this will remain
the case, and there is a short-
age of real-time information
on gas availability on a sta-
tion-by-station basis.
Auto travelers should
begin looking to refill their gas
tanks when they have one-
half tank left. If there are
issues with outages beyond
just a station-by-station basis,
waiting until your low-fuel
light comes on could be con-
sidered pushing your luck.
Are gas stations shutting
down? Some convenience
stores are voluntarily impos-
ing caps on how much gaso-
line they will sell to each indi-
vidual motorist. The reason
for that is their wholesalers
may have notified them the
allocation that will be deliv-
ered to them may be less than
usual. If that is the case, retail-
ers obviously want to remain
operating as long as possible.
They have often said there
is no profit margin in gaso-
line. If that is accurate, they
want to remain open as long


as possible to secure the bet-
ter profits that soda, beer,
candy and cigarettes repre-
sent. That is why self-im-
posed "rationing" by some
retailers may be seen in some
markets.
How high will prices in-
crease and when will they
come back down? Each mar-
ket faces different conditions
and some markets are im-
pacted more than others.
There's no way to anticipate
when prices should start to
decline from the levels they
are reaching this weekend.
At this point, everyone
should use fuel conservative-
ly; consolidate errands; and
make sure that your vehicle is
maximizing its fuel economy.

OUR VIEW


When will we do something about rising gas prices?
Whn i th but


hen will we say that enough is enough
for gasoline prices?
Obviously, we're not at that point yet.
As the per gallon cost approaches $3, we
don't seem to be radically affected. We're still
driving just as many miles, taking just as
many trips.
We could drive at a steady pace under 60
mph; we could use cruise control; we could
combine trips; we could reduce the weight in
our cars; and we could drive smaller cars. We
might even be doing some or all of those
things, but we're likely not doing them to
conserve energy.
We've learned that we caii save a bit (or
two bits) by comparing prices at different sta-
tions, but usually it's so minimal it's not worth
the effort.


Years ago, drivers wouldn't even think
about depriving their favorite station of their
business. Of course, that was when the owner
actually pumped the gas, cleaned the wind-
shield and checked the oil. And the per-gal-
lon price was considerably lower than it is
today. Those days are gone. If you're old
enough to remember, forget it.
If your car gets 20 miles per gallon and you
drive 300 miles a week, then you're putting 15
gallons into your automobile every week. At $3
a gallon, thafs $45 a fillup. At $2 (remember
those good, ol' days?), you were paying $30.
But as crude oil goes for $70 a barrel and
more, with derricks toppled by the winds of
Katrina in the Gulf of Mexico and refining
plants on land flooded away, it appears
there's no top figure.


Two years ago, the price of crude oil aver-
aged $28.50 per barrel. The price of crude
accounts for 43 percent of the cost of a gallon of
gasoline, according to the Department of
Energy's Energy Information Administration.
Federal and State taxes take about 27 percent.
Refining costs and profits comprise about 15
percent. Distribution, marketing and retailer
dealer costs and profits make up 14 percent
It's all combining for gasoline price in-
creases that seem to have no limit.
Next up: $5 per gallon, competing with the
price of gasoline at the pumps in Europe. At
S$5 per gallon, that's $75 week for gasoline to
get you 300 miles.
Will $75 a fillup get your attention?
Record profits by the oil companies,
record prices at the pumps. We're fighting a


war in a country that products oil, but it has-
n't seemed to have helped anyone in this
country. Auto makers are making hybrids
that alternate between gasoline and electric-
ity, but they can't seem to make them fast
enough and the prices are too high to be eco-
nomical.
Somehow, we have to reduce our devotion
to oil. But, it doesn't end with our use of the
family car. There's heating oil. There's fuel in
airplanes and trucks that bring us food and
other goods. There's oil that finds its way into
some of those goods.
The United States uses 20 million barrels
(840 million gallons) of petroleum products
each day. Gasoline accounts for about one-
half of that. How can we use less?
How can we not?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Airport would be life link in disaster


Editor:
With the catastrophic devastation evidenced by Hurricane
Katrina's passage, combined with regional destruction in 2004,
we must surely acknowledge just how lucky we in Venice are.
Much of that "luck" comes from preparation.
As we watch the vivid photographic record of the massive
obliteration of virtually everything that man can build, one
must wonder just how relief will be brought to those in need.
Road and bridge destruction will limit the delivery of need-
ed supplies; debris.in shipping channels will limit access from
the sea. The vital link in providing immediate help lies in the
local airports and their ability to handle emergency flights .by
both helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft. Those 3-foot-thick
runways need only be cleaned of flying debris, and they are
back in business.
We in Venice are indeed lucky to have an airport, ready and
able to provide those services, should the need arise. Two
5,000-foot runways, easily capable of handling C-130 aircraft
(having done so in the past), would provide immediate relief to
our region.
How would relief be brought to us were U.S. 41 and 1-75 ren-
dered unusable? Without our airport, Venice and environs
would be in a difficult situation should a similar storm hit us
directly.
We should all be proud of our local airport, the staff and the
administration that support it and those who utilize it.
It has always been a valuable asset to our area, and a com-
fort to know that it is there to serve us all, should the need ever
arise.

As a daily swimmer in the

I am somewhat skeptical of
the facile assumption made
by the city manager in your
lead story that Katrina ser-
endipitously tossed some ex-
tra sand onto Venice Beach.
Sure enough, there is a lot
of the stuff piled up at the
South Jetty, but I think it more
than likely it was just skim-
med off the rest of the beach
all the way down to the pier.
My reason for thinking this is


because all along that mile or

14A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN


Build sidewalk. If the Landmark restaurant is sold, I think
the city should require the new owners to install a sidewalk on
Miami Avenue. There's a brand new school back there, and the
Venetian Waterway Park, yet there's no sidewalk back there and
the plumbing store has all that on-street parking- an accident
waiting to happen. The former auto repair shop across the
street is now a used-car lot or a parking lot for the hardware
store employees. It's an eyesore. It should be taken care of now.


City complaints. About the
gentleman on Groveland
Avenue who built the house
and now he's getting .fined -
the city should have caught
this before he got this far and
put a stop to it. Also, the city
of Venice's newsletter came
out today and there was an
article about the sand. It says
first of five beach projects, a
50-year span. What happened
about the one from 1994?
We've had one, this is the
second one. The first sand is
gone. There's no discussion
about the first project in 1994
under George Hunt. It's very
misleading when the article
says first of five.
Results. Wouldn't it be
great if our Let'em Have It
comments actually accom-


polished something rather
than merely being a venue for
letting off steam?
For example, several call-
ers have voiced complaints
that certain vehicles block
their view in parking lots. Yet,
there is little hope that mall
owners will actually ban those
tanks.
Also, there have been calls
about sewer charges being
based on usage. Is there much
hope that our elected officials
will remedy this outrage
against pool owners and
water leaks? Furthermore,
speed limits are obviously too
low on Center and Jacaranda,
and probably many more
roads that I don't drive. Does
anyone believe those limits
will ever be raised? If only the

Gondolier Sun had a trouble-
shooting reporter who would
direct our concerns to the
appropriate parties and
hound them for results.
Step out. I'm calling in ref-
erence to Fran Valencic's col-
umn. I hope that as the year
progresses, she remembers
that there are many other
schools besides Venice Ele-
mentary. We all know .her
daughter teaches there and
her granddaughters go there.
We don't need to continually
read about it. Also, give Cleve-
land a rest. There are many of
us who could care less about
Cleveland.
Fran needs to step out of
the box and step out of her
own little world if she's going
to write a column for the
paper and expand her hori-
zons in order to give many
. other people in the commu-
nity a chance to have their
good things about Venice
published.
Inevitable. All of a sudden
Harbor .Lights, which has
been in town for many many
years, is nonconforming. Of
course, it was inevitable once
the residents in the penthous-
es of those monstrosities by
the north bridge started com-
plaining about the view from
their expensive porches that
the park was gonna have to
go.
Many of us have been say-
ing this for a long time and
now it has happened.

county and the city of North
Port opted not to use any of
their several hundred delin-
quent lots to give to groups
like these to help solve the
problem of the poor.
I feel in part that decision
is wrapped up in not getting
as much taxes from lower-
end housing. It appears also
very likely GCCFV is not likely
to include any of these afford-
able housing groups in its
current land development.
The work being done is
noble and will help some, but
there will have to be attention
to the low-income groups or
industry will relocate and the
tourist industry and the econ-
omy will suffer.

The paper you are reading
today is the last off the Harris
press that has served us very
well since 1977, when Derek
Dunn-Rankin had the nine
units (one unit prints four
pages or one color) installed.
Our talented pressmen have
printed a lot of wonderful
products not only for us, but
for a large array of commer-
cial customers.
But starting Wednesday
the Harris press will start to be
dismantled to go to its new
home in Pennsylvania. It is
really sad.
We will install a press dur-
ing the month of September.


that we bought from the
Orlando Sentinel. It will give
us much more capability.
There are 18 units, which will
allow us to run a lot more
color than at present. It is 50.
percent faster and has the
ability to attach a new roll to
an expiring roll at full speed,
where now we have to stop
the press.
It also allows us more flexi-
bility in the way the products
are folded and will provide
more backup should we have
problems at our Port Char-
lotte facility.
It will take some time, but
once fully debugged it will
give you a much more color-
ful product.

that it was the foundation for

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
i 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 back 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 discolored
filling or one next to darkened tooth structure, unless it is visually
objectionable. In fact there is evidence 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.

FULLY INVESTED IN OUR CLIENTS.



LOOKING FOR REGULAR INCOME?
CONSIDER BONDS.
By staggering your bond investments, you can receive
a monthly interest check instead of one check every
six months. You'll get a regular income stream, which
makes your overall planning much easier. Call me to
find out more about monthly bond interest checks.
Investors should keep in mind that as interest rates
rise existing bond prices of already-outstanding fixed-
income securities tend to fall. Long-term bonds are
generally more exposed to interest rate risk than
short-term bonds.

SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Good to be home

I recently came home from
2 weeks in Cleveland, Ohio,
where I helped my mom,
Lottie Wojciechowski cele-
brate her 85th birthday. It was
fun to watch her friends sere-
nade her with "Happy Birth-
day," and the traditional Pol-
ish, "Sto Lat" at the annual
Summer Immaculate Heart of
Mary Parish picnic.
It's been at least 35 years
since I attended one of these
picnics and forgot how much
fun it is to dance the Polka to a
live band all afternoon and eat
a full course Polish feast of
kielbasa, kapusta, pierogi and
noodles for only $5.
I had a chance to see first
hand whymymom is so reluc-
tant to move to Venice.
The birthday fell in the
middle of the Cleveland Indi-
an's home stand. I saw the
Tribe loose only once in 6
games and that was to the
Devil Rays.
- Thanks to the suggestion of
Venice Gondolier Sun colum-
nist Ed Martin, I traveled to
Niagra On. The Lake. I'll be
writing a feature on this lovely
town, very much like Venice,
that opted for over a hundred
Bed and Breakfasts rather
than tall buildings.
It was fun to visit with old
friends whose names mostly
end in ski. I've had my
Cleveland fix and am grateful
to-get on with the joy ol'enice.


The Phartists, a group of Venice photographers and writers, includes back row, from left,
the front row, Suzie Seery-Lester, Mary Jo Perkins, Maureen Snyder and Jerry Woelfl.

Euro Express
At fate might have it, when I
returned to work and opened
my drawer at the Venice
Gondolier Sun I saw "Loca for
the Polka," and "Zing A Ling"
CDs. It seems Nancy Seibert
and John Gunther also known
as Euro Express aie living in
Venice ready to bring their
Polka music to town.
I think Venice is ready for a
great Polka Festival. If you also
think so, let me know and we'll
work on it. fran@sunline.net
Labor Day News
Lee Pires, General Manager
of the Venice Yacht Club,
reports a busy Labor Day
weekend for club members.
Aubrey Rice, Bob Young, Bey
and Bill Anton, Edna and Lee
Maumeister, Maggie and Jerry
Green, Michele Swatek, Claire
and Bill Ward, Cora and Stan
Wright planned activities for
children, a pool side pig roast,
bake sale, trash to treasure
sale, breakfasts and a dance.
Celebrating the red, white
and blue in a special way these
days is Ursula Brown, a laun-
dress at the Venice Yacht Club.
On June 10, this terrific lady
became a U.S.A. citizen.
Ursula reminds everyone to
appreciate our freedoms.
Talkabout
destination weddings
Venice Beach is the ideal
spot for a wedding even when
it means traveling from West
Africa. Kristin Cooney and
Kevin Mbanza pledged their
love in front of friends and
parents Terry and Charles
Cooney. Granddaughter Mar-
lie Cooney brought an extra
special magic to the event.
The happy couple lives in
Rowanda where Kristin works
for U.S. Aid, a program that
helps child survivors in 9
countries.
Pat on the back
Special kudos to -Bogey's
Sports Pub and Restaurant for
creating an outdoor patio to
make watching' Sunday foot-
ball games even more fun.
I'll see you there. Go

In Part I, the Phartists
(Photographers and Artists Jack
and Mary Jo Perkins, Chuck and
Maureen Snyder, John and Suzie
Seerey-Lester and Bob and Jerry
Woelfl of Venice) met up at the
Harraseeket Inn in Freeport, Maine,
and began their eight-day adven-
ture in search of scenes to paint
and photograph and fresh seafood
to consume.

BYJERRY WOELFL
GUEST WRITER

Having photographed and
painted many scenes in
Stonington, the group board-
ed the ferry there for our next
stop, Isle au Haut, the most
remote spot on our list. It is a
40-minute ride on the Mail
Boat from Stonington and we
were told to pack "sparingly"
because there was not much
room on the boat and we
would be housed in the light-
house keepers' quarters.
Isle au Haut or "High
Island" was named by the
French navigator Samuel
Chaplain in 1604. Although it
appears to have been inhabit-
ed by American Indians, it'
was not until the 1880's that a.
"summer community" was
established. Chaplain's heirs
donated a large portion of the


island to the Acadia National
Park in the 1940s.
There are just five camp-
sites (with lean-to-shelters)
on the island. Campers must
preregister with the park and
can stay no more than three
nights in the high season and
no more than five nights May
15-June 14 and Sept. 15-Oct.
14, and no more than one
time per calendar year.
Campers have access to an
outhouse, picnic table, fire pit
and water from a pump some
1,600 feet from the shelters
and, you must carry all your
trash off the island when you
go.
Our guide Jack Perkins had
made arrangements for us to
stay at the lighthouse keeper's
house, which sits atop the
rugged cliff overlooking the
Atlantic Ocean, Built cen-
turies ago by the US
Lighthouse Board, the title to
the lighthouse tower was
transferred to the village of
Isle au Haut. The building was
restored by Jeff and Julie'
Burke and has just four guest
rooms in the keeper's house
and a small Oil House that
has its own "outhouse." We
were not aware of that until
we arrived to do our "keys in
the hat" trick to determine


At Isle au Haut (High Island) the Phartists stayed in the lighthouse keeper's quarters, which
included the former oil house.


who would occupy which.
room. Friends of the Perkins
were joining us for our island
stay, which meant that our
group would occupy all five
rooms, including the one
with the "outhouse."
Drawn and quartered
in the Keeper's House
The first key drawn, by the
Snyders, was for the. Oil


The Inn on the Harbor was formed from four old Victorian buildings, which were joined togeth-
er to create an inn with 13 guestrooms.


House, in the keeper's words,
"a separate tiny building with
slate roof and private deck -
just large enough to hold a
double bed..." In addition to
the outhouse there was an
outdoor shower. Needless to
say the rest of us were quite
amused.
The others would stay in
the main house. The four
guest rooms in the main
house are roomy, full of light
and furnished with painted
antiques and double beds.
Two bathrooms would be
shared by the four couples
and there was no electricity
so light would be from can-
dles or lanterns. They did fur-
nish flashlights for those of us
who get up in the night. The
light in the lighthouse is solar
powered.
John and Suzie Seerey-
Lester got the garret, an odd-
shaped room on the top floor
with water views in two direc-
tions, a large sitting room and
access to the second bath-
room just outside their door. I
think they won this "key in
the hat" event.
The Perkins got the keep-
er's room, which faces the
light tower so they had a
built-in night light. The room
contains a great old iron bed,


a pot bellied stove and plenty
of room to be comfortable.
Bob and I got the Sunrise
Room, which has lots of sun
and a cozy setting for a "pea
and the princess bed" with a
step ladder for getting into
bed. The room also has a
wood stove although it was
not needed as the weather
wvas quite warm while we
were there.
The Perkins' friends were

Preventing mosquito-borne illness


Prevention steps are critical in protecting against
illnesses


STAFF REPORT

Florida Department of
Health (DOH) officials today
emphasized the importance
of Florida's residents and visi-
tors protecting themselves
against mosquito-borne dis-
eases.
Throughout the year, DOH
works with partner agencies,
including the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Com-
mission, mosquito control
agencies and state universi-
ties, to monitor for the pres-
ence of mosquitoes carrying
illnesses. So far in 2005,
Florida has reported four
confirmed cases of Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE)
and eight confirmed cases of
West Nile (WN) virus.
Nearly 20 counties have
detected the presence of WN
virus in surveillance popula-
tions, while 46 counties have
reported EEE virus activity to
date.
"Mosquito-borne illnesses
are preventable by taking a
few simple steps to avoid
mosquito bites," said DOH
Secretary John 0. Agwunobi,
M.D., M.B.A., M.PH. "With
most of the counties in
Florida reporting the pres-
ence of at least one virus
transmitted by mosquitoes,
it is critical that all Floridians
work to curb the spread of
these illnesses."
Symptoms of WN virus
infections, St. Louis Encepha-.
litis (SLE), and EEE may
include headache, fever,
fatigue, dizziness, weakness
and confusion.
Physicians should contact
their County Health Depar-
tment if they suspect an indi-
vidual may have a mosquito-
borne illness. DOH laborato-
ries provide testing services
for physicians treating
patients with clinical signs of


mosquito-borne disease.
There were a total of 42
confirmed human WN virus
disease cases resulting in two
deaths in Florida in 2004,
compared to 94 cases with six
deaths in 2003. In 2002,
there were 35 cases with two
deaths. Additionally, no
human EEE or SLE cases were
reported in 2004 to the
Florida State Health Office.
DOH continues to advise
the public to remain diligent
in their protecting themselves
from mosquito bites by fol-
lowing the "5 D's," which
include:
* Dusk and Dawn Avoid
being outdoors when mos-
quitoes are seeking blood. For
many species, this is during
the dusk and dawn hours.
* 'Dress Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
* DEET -When the potential
exists for exposure to mosqui-
toes, repellents containing
DEET .(N,N-diethyl-meta-
toluamide, or N,N-diethyl-3-
methylbenzamide) are rec-
ommended. Picaridih and
oil of lemon eucalyptus are
other repellent options.
* Drainage Check around
your home to rid the area of
standing water, which is
where mosquitoes can lay
their eggs.
Additionally, officials
encourage anyone who dis-
covers a dead bird to report it
via the Internet. The bird
mortality reporting system is
located on the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Web site, wild-
florida.org/bird. If people do
not have access to the
Internet, they may report
dead birds to their county
health department or local
FWCC office.
For more information on
mosquito-borne illnesses,
visit doh.state.fl.us, cdc.gov,
or call your local county
health department.


ELIMINATE BREEDING SITES
Elimination of breeding sites is one of the keys to prevention.
* Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters.
* Remove old tires or drill holes in those used in playgrounds to
drain.
* Turn over or remove empty plastic pots.
* Pick up all beverage containers and cups.
* Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water.
* Pump out bilges on boats.
* Replace water in birdbaths and pet or other animal feeding
dishes at least once a week.
- Change water in plant trays, including hanging plants, at least
once a week.
* Remove vegetation or obstructions in drainage ditches that
prevent the flow of water.


'SUN FILE GRAPHIC


TIPS ON REPELLENT USE
- Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage
before applying a repellent to skin. Some repellants are not suit-
able for children.
- Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are gen-
erally recommended. Other potential mosquito repellents, as
reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
in April 2005, contain picandin or oil of lemon eucalyptus. These
products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for
active ingredients to be listed on the product label.
- Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not
under clothing.
- In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the
repellent is age appropriate.
* According to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of
lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children younger than
3 years.
.. DEET is not recommended on children younger than 2 months.
'* hfants should be kept indoors ornosquito netting should be
used over carriers when mosquitoes are present.
- Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should
apply repellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the
child's skin and clothing.
* If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent
directly to your clothing. Always follow the manufacturer's direc-
tions.

STAFF REPORT

Suncoast Communities
Blood Bank (SCBB) extends
its concern and compassion
to citizens of the communi-
ties devastated by Hurricane
Katrina and to fellow blood
banks in the Gulf Coast
areas who have suffered
losses and hardships
beyond comprehension.
SCBB stands ready to
help fellow blood banks in
Louisiana, Mississippi, Ala-
bama, and other devastated
areas by. offering blood
products through a national
resource sharing network
when supplies are asked for.
At this time the largest
need is for direct financial
assistance through recog-
nized charities that are coor-
dinating relief efforts. Our pri-
ority goal is to meet the needs
of our local community and
to assist people in need of
blood components elsewhere
as resources can be extended.
"Although the CIrI :"-I
blood needs in the affected
areas are adequate for now,
blood donors and, blood
products are going to be
needed more so in the com-
ing weeks in those hard hit
areas," said Dr. Mark J.
Magenheim, CEO and Medi-
cal Director of Suncoast Com-

from the public expressing
interest in donating blood for
hurricane relief efforts are
truly appreciated. This willing

Local public health offi-
cials are still seeking partici-

the Laurel, Osprey, Venice and
Nokomis areas of southern
Sarasota County.
Eligible participants will
receive individualized dia-
betes care plans in their home


rnunity is going to become
more critical in coming
weeks. We encourage anyone
interested in donating blood
to make an appointment by
calling toll free at (866)-954-
1600 extension 240 or by visit-
ing scbb.org. At this time, an
appointment is preferred
rather than walking in to our
main locations."
Locally, it is imperative for
the blood bank to have an
adequate supply of blood
ready when needed at all
times, especially during Hur-
ricane season.
If the area were to be
impacted again by a major
hurricane such as Charley or
one similar to Katrina, the
blood bank will have no
.means to collect blood during
or after the storm. All types of
blood are needed at all times
because red whole blood cells
must be used within 42 days
and platelets within 5 days.
There is no artificial substi-
tute for human blood and the
only way to keep the commu-
nity in supply of this life-sav-
ing substance during hurri-
cane season and all year, is
through the efforts of.volun-
teer blood donors. SCBB is
the only supplier of blood
products to Sarasota Mem-
orial Hospital, Doctors Hospi-
tal and DeSoto Memorial
Hospital and has served the
Sarasota, Charlotte and De-
Soto Counties for more:than
56 years. One blood donation
can help save up to three

Q. My mother lives in an
assisted living facility. Her
Audiologist wants her to
wear her hearing aids but
my mother has already
"misplaced" .her set once
and I'm afraid she will lose
them if she wears them.
Any suggestions?
A. The solution is to attached
your mother's hearing aids
to her with an Otoclip. This
is a lightweight lanyard
which securely attaches to
your mother's, hearing aid,
and then clips firmly to her
clothing. The otoclip is
available for use with one or
two hearing aids and can be
used for either behind the ear
or in the ear styles. In
addition, it is sometimes 'wise
to look into acquiring Loss
insurance for your mother's

hearing aids. The cost is
minimal compared to the cost
of a new instrument and is
definitely worth the piece of
mind. To find out how to
order loss insurance or how
to get an otoclip, call the
Audiologist at Woodmere,
Hearing Center at 492-4327.

WCI receives environmental honor


STAFF REPORT


WCQ Communities' Venetian
Golf and River Club has won an
Aurora Award for green con-
struction at the 2005 South-
eastern Builders Conference
during the 27th annual awards
ceremony.
The all "green" community
won the production model
award for the Rosa model
home. WCI Vice President and
Venetian Project Manager Steve
Walker accepted the award on
behalf ofWCI.
'It is an honor to receive this
award, and it is an excellent
recognition for the WCI
employees who worked hard to
build an all green community,"
Steve Walker said. "WCI has
made environmental sustain-
ability a top priority, and this
community is a model of that


commitment. This award
should also remind us of the
health benefits, cost savings and
environmental enhancements
associated with living green."
Venetian's Rosa model was,
judged on the aesthetic
appeal and use of green
building materials featured
both in and outside the
home. Other judging criteria
were interior features -
including appliance upgrades
- target market, and overall
Function of the floor plan.
The Rosa model home is
part of the courtyard series
released at the Venetian. This
model is a 1,690 square foot,
two bedroom, two bath floor
plan. The Rosa is one model
available at the Venetian Golf

ing principles, certified by

From the arms of my

cozy little lounge chair


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

For many years I kept
entering the-Reader's Digest
Sweepstakes, sure that even-
tually I would win a big sum
of money so I could visit every
five-star restaurant and enjoy
fine dining. Essentially I am a
lady of very simple tastes and
limited income, but some-
where along the line, maybe
because of travels, or knowing
my children, I acquired this
fondness for eating well. My
exposure has been quite lim-
ited, however, so as I sit in my
lounge chair I weave a fantasy
experience, some of it based
on truth, some of it on fiction.
This is my fantasy: My
phone rang the other evening,
and my friend, I'll call him
"Em," asked me if I would like
to go to a five-star restaurant
about an hour north ofVenice.
Wow! Me, an almost blind and
deaf, an almost 92-year-old
lady? Why not! Sure, I said,
agreeing to his Dutch-treat
offer. When I say I got dressed
up, you have to understand
that that is limited, for I have
to wear politically correct-for-
old-ladies white oxfords.
So Em wheels me into the
fine dining room in my
wheelchair. That's a little easi-
er for him than my walker,
since I can't see where I'm
going. I'll bet all those waiters
are hoping they don't get this
one! I
So the lucky waiter asked
us if we would like a glass of
wine before dinner. "Yes," I
answered, ."I'm fine." He
repeated himself, and I
ordered a glass of sweet sher-
ry, and along with it, he
brought some dark bread
with some exotic dipping
sauce. I was in seventh heav-
en. White linen table cloths,
large linen napkins and fine
crystal. Ahhh. The poor waiter
doesn't know that I can make
a meal out of bread and wine.
I'm already calculating how
-reasonably I can get by in this
very expensive place.
"What would you like for
an appetizer?" asked the wait-
er. I asked him to repeat him-
self two times, but he kept his
cool.'
I was'thinking about con-
somme madrilene! I kind of
doubted they had that on the
menu, since I hadn't had it in
60 years. So after asking Em to
read the menu louder, four
times, I order fois gras gar-
nished with a vanilla and
sauternes reduction deca-
dent!
Now I tuck my big napkin
under my chin. You see, some
years ago, I was invited to din-
ner at a fancy country club.
Another guest, who was
much older than I, and had
property all over the United
States tucked her napkin
under her chin, so I just pre-
tended I was rich too. Then,.
my fork fell to the floor with a
clang, but I wasn't going to let
that spoil my dinner. Em
asked if I would like frog legs.
"What did you say?" I asked.
"No, I wouldn't like frog legs."
"No, no I didn't say frog legs, I
said crab legs," but just then, I
tipped over the wine glass! I'm
kind of sorry about that, since
it does have a rosy hue,
maybe they can get the stain
out!
Before I ordered I cau-
tioned the waiter that I could-
n't have anything with butter
as that might make me sick.
Nothing spicy or anything,
with salt, either. He swal-
lowed a little and said, "Of
course, Madame, anything


you like." I'll bet he was think-
ing, "At least this old lady
must be rich, and will leave
me a big tip." Little does he
know!
The crab. legs arrived, a
gourmet delight, that's for
sure, worthy of the restau-
rant's reputation. The waiter
presented me a tall, stem-
med, crystal glass resting on a
circlet of rose petals on a crys-
tal plate. Six delicately fla-
vored crab legs were painted
up over the remaining crab
meat. I held on to the stem
and managed not to knock it
over! I asked for a Chardon-
nay.
I decided to go for broke
and order bananas foster for
dessert.'
When the waiter brought
the check I gave him an extra
fifty cents because he was
kinda nice. I'm not a very big
tipper. I hoped there wasn't
too much food around my
plate or on the floor.
That evening I was sitting
in my lounge chair and the
thought occurred to me that
the waiter had not, said,
"Come back again soon
Madame." I wonder why?
Ah well. It was a nice fanta-
sy.

year-old, legally blind resi-

JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
I could sure use some help
deciphering a hospital bill from
my wife's recent hip replace-
ment surgery. We don't have
much disposable income, so I
like to keep track of our money
as closely as possible, but I can't
make heads or tails out of these
bills. Do you have any sugges-
tions? Dumbfounded Don

Dear Don,
For most Americans, reading
their hospital bill is like read-
ing Chinese. With all the
medical jargon and code
words these bills can be
extremely difficult to under-
stand, which leads to an even
bigger problem, over-
charging! It's estimated nearly
90 percent of hospital bills
contain errors, most of which
are in the hospital's favor.
Here's what you should know.
Catching the errors
Decoding your hospital bill
may seem like a daunting
task but it's definitely worth
the effort. Studies have ,


shown that hospital billing
errors cause patients to be
overcharged-an average of
$1,300 per stay. Here are
some tips to help you get
started:
Request a daily itemized
bill and review it thorough-
ly. You can't catch errors if
you don't know specifically
what you're being charged
for.
Make sure you're charged
for the correct length of stay
and the right kind of room.
Note that most insurance
companies do not allow hos-
pitals to charge for your dis-
charge day, although many
hospitals frequently do so
anyway.
Watch for double billing -
being charged for the same
service twice. This is the most
common mistake hospitals
make.
Check for phantom
charges. Many hospitals have
a set of standard fees for cer-
tain procedures that they
automatically charge, even
though the doctor cancelled
it.
Look for overpriced extras.
Some hospitals may charge
for extra supplies like towels,
gloves or a box of tissue
which should all be included
in the room charge. Also
check medication charges.'
Were you charged $10 for a
pill that would have cost you
$1 to buy yourself?
Check operating room
time. It's not uncommon for
hospitals to bill for more time

a donor? And, is checking the
organ donor box on my driver's
license all I need to do? -
Donating Donna
Dear Donna,
When it c6mes to organ
transplants, the demand has
always been much greater
than the supply. In the
United States alone, more
than 89,000 people are on
the waiting list for transplant
surgery, and every 13 min--
utes another name is added.
Here's what you should
know.
Donating facts
There's no set age limit to
being an organ and tissue
donor. People of all ages and
medical histories should
consider themselves poten-
tial donors. In fact, there are
many people well up in their
80s that donate. Your medical
condition at the time of
death will determine what
organs and tissue can be
donated.
Organs that can be donat-
ed include the kidneys (by far
the highest in demand with
more than 60,000 on the
waiting list), liver, lungs,
heart, pancreas and


intestines. Tissue is also
needed to replace bone, ten-
dons and ligaments. Corneas
are needed to restore sight.
Skin grafts help burn patients
. heal and often mean the dif-
ference between life and
death. And heart valves
repair cardiac defects and
damage.
Before considering organ
donation, many people have
to get past a common and
unfounded fear that your
organs will be harvested
when you still have a chance
to live. But the truth is that if
you are sick or injured and
admitted to the hospital, the
number one priority is to
save your life. Organ dona-
tion can only be considered
if you die (or are declared
brain dead by a physician)
and after your family has
-been consulted.
Savvy Fact: Every day,
about 74 people receive an
organ transplant, but anoth-
er 17 people on the waiting
list cie because organs aren't
available.
How to donate
Various polls suggest plenty

STAFF REPORT

The first Sunday after
Labor Day isn't just a day to
mourn the end of summer. It
marks National Grandparents
Day, a day set aside to honor
grandparents and help chil-
dren become aware of the
benefits of having grandpar-
ents in their lives.
Grandparents Day was ini-
tiated by Marian Lucille
Herndon McQuade, a West
Virginia housewife with 15
children, 40 grandchildren
and and 8 great-grandchil-
dren. In 1970, McQuade
sought to set aside a special
day just for grandparents..


After an intense lobbying
effort in 1973, West Virginia
became the first state with a
Grandparents Day. (Original-
ly held in May, the date was
shifted to September because
May was crowded with other
holidays and because the
time of year would signify the
"autumn years of life.") It was
proclaimed nationally by
President Jimmy Carter in
1978 and observed nation-
wide for the first time in 1979.
Regardless of how you cel-
ebrate the day, be sure to do
something. It will not only
strengthen your relationship,
it will cultivate a bond -that
will last lifetime. -

run by people who know you

Transcontinental flight offered a feast for the eyes


BY PEGGI CONLIN-PAQUETTE
CORRESPONDENT


Until my recent., trip to
Eugene, Oregon, I had nevel
traveled cross-country, let
alone around the world.
Desire had nothing to do
with it. Opportunity had
never knocked.
When it finally did, I
jumped at the chance.
That does not mean I
wasn't a bit apprehensive
about the long flight a
Delta nonstop from Tampa
to Salt Lake City followed by
a short hop to Eugene. The
worries departed even before
the flight. There was ample
leg and seat .room on the
flight. Once we took off there
was even a movie to watch.
But that paled next to the
sights outside the plane's
windows the snow-capped
mountains that we flew over
once we were past the plains.
What an awe-inspiring sight.
Descending into Salt Lake
City over the Great Salt Lake,
we enjoyed another feast for
the eyes. There was not much
time to take in the scenery
during our short time at that
airport, but, looking like a
tourist, with my head swivel-
ing in all directions, I saw as,
much. as I could.
With all those beautiful
mountains below, the flight
into Eugene seemed even
shorter than it was.
My friends met me at the
airport.
Forget any jet lag or three-
hour time differences, they
said. We were heading to the
coast, about an hour's drive
from the airport, but much
farther in other ways.
Alighting from the plane
into a balmy and delightful
85-degree temperature, I was
surprised that the coastline
temperature was much cooler
50 degrees at the beach.,
What a sight the first beach
we saw was. Huge sand
dunes surround the area,
near Florence, Oregon. The
beach we visited is noted for
its dunes. You can rent dune
buggies and take a wild ride
on them, or join a group in a
larger .buggy and be driven
over the sandy landscape. For
dune surfers, this is the place
to go. There is a jetty at the
first beach we visited. Instead
of seeing dolphins swimming
in the jetty as we often do here
inVenice, there were sea lions.
Mesmerized, we watched
them sun themselves, occa-
sionally diving into the water
(probably for a snack) and
then clambering back on the
rocks.
We fought a stiff breeze,as
we walked across a beach
strewn with the white-
washed, wind-blown remains
of trees. It was no surprise
those trees, had been blown
over. It was all we could do
to remain upright but event-


There was still snow on the mountain so I took the opportunity
to make a small snowman.

Crater Lake. Hiking the trail to thb lake to take a boat ridevseems easy. It is the hike up'that is
difficult. ... .


Despite the chilly air and
chillier water, I wondered,
"could it get any better than
this?"

Heading north along the
Pacific Coast Highway
Leaving the cold water
behind, we got back in the car
and headed up the Pacific
Coast highway. Around every
bend of the road was another
beach, different scenery,
more to marvel at. Since.
much of this stretch of the
highway is through a national
forest, we were able to see
nature in the raw, not just
what is left to see between the
high-rise buildings that are
proliferating nearly .every-
where.
More sea lions were ahead,
at the Sea Lion Cave, 10 miles
north of Florence, Ore., an
area where you can see sea
lions in their natural habitat,
sunning themselves on the
rocky shoreline. The cave,
which is a natural grotto hol-
lowed out of the hillside, is
located 300 feet below the


ing on the rocks inside the
grotto that day. As we stood
and watched, more swam in
to get ready to spend the
night. Many zoos and wildlife
venues try to replicate such
a place an impossible
task. This is as nature meant
it to be. I could have spent


'Into the mountains by
way of McKenzie Pass
The' next day I had my
answer as we headed into the
mountains, along the steep
and curving road, that is
McKenzie Pass. I drank in the
beauty of the trees, mountain
streams and the snow capped


day of sightseeing, coupled
with a delicious meal was the
icing on this day's cake.
Crater Lake was the
goal on Day Three
No rest for the weary. My
friends were determined that
I would see Crater Lake, three
hours away, on Day Three.
Located in south central
Oregon, Crater Lake, the
deepest lake in the U.S., is in
the Cascade Mountains. Its
water is an incredible sap-
phire blue. The lake is a
caldera, produced when the
center of a volcano caved in
upon itself. This occurred
6,500 years ago, when "the
12,000-foot high Mount
'Mazama erupted. A 33-mile
drive along the rim of the
Lake affords many "Kodak"
moments. One word comes
to mind breathtaking. You
can take a boat ride around
the lake, but only after you
take a 700-foot hike down to
the lake from the crater rim.
No elevator here. That did not
sound' too difficult,-bi-t the
700-foot hike back up was a
deterrent as we watched
younger, more fit people huff-
ing and. puffing as they
returned to the top. Driving
along the rim, which is only
open from July through
October because of the heavy
snowfall they experience, we
did get a chance to stop and
play in some remaining snpw.
This was a real treat for us
Florida gals who haven't seen
snow in 30 years. .
The first three days. had
flown by. We had been to


the edge of the Pacific Ocean
and to the top of a mountain.
There was no time for jet lag
for we still had to explore
Eugene. So far, that beautiful
city was simply the site of
our hotel and the place
where we put our heads on
our pillows each evening.
More than simply beauti-
ful, Eugene also is the hub of
a diverse assortment of cul-
tural activities. It is clean and
the people are friendly and
there is even a store where
you can have your Birken-
stocks resoled. You have to
love a. place where you can
do that. This product of the
60s was very at home there.
Eugene is a university town
too, the home of the Uni-
versity of Oregon and its
Ducks. Go Ducks!
Just outside'of town is the
King Winery, surrounded by
acres of grapevines. In the
middle of 'the property is a
beautiful Tuscan-inspired
building housing the equip-
ment to make wine. We took
part in a.wine tastng there
and found some vintages we
liked enough to bring all the
way home to Florida.'
Armed with our bottles of
wine and wonderful memo-
ries we once again boarded a
Delta jet for a cross-country
* flight.
Delta. again outdid itself
on the flight home. This time I
had a window seat and gazed
at the changing landscape as
we traversed the country, lit-
erally flying from "sea to shin-
ing sea."
Arriving back home, tired

There was an elevator to
take us from the top to the

There is no car traffic in

Sarasota County libraries observe National Library Card Sign-up Month


STAFF REPORT

The eight public libraries
in the Sarasota County
Library System will celebrate
National Library Card Sign-
up Month in September by
helping remind their patrons
(and not-yet-patrons) that
"The Smartest Card is @ Your
Library."


Observed nationally since
1987, National Library Card
Sign-up Month is a time
when the American Library
Association (ALA) and librar-
ies across the country remind
parents that a library card is
the most important school
supply of all. The campaign
also informs the public that
libraries partner with citizens


to create and maintain vib-
rant and educated communi-
ties, which are essential for a
free people.
During Library Card Sign-
up Month, Sarasota County
Libraries will join other pub-
lic libraries across the nation
and the Public Library
Association (PLA), a division
of the ALA, to promote the


use of library cards. The goal
of the "Smartest Card" cam-
paign is to make the library
card every American,s most
used and valued card.
"My library card is the
most important card in my
wallet," said Nancy Pike, Sara-
sota County Libraries director
and current president of the
Florida Library Association.


"The card gives me a huge
return on my investment I
pay less in tax dollars to sup-
port our libraries than the
cost of one hardcover book,
yet I have access to literally
millions of dollars worth of
books, audiovisual materials,
magazines, online resources
and other information."
For more information on


how to sign up for your library
card, visit your Sarasota
County Public Library, visit
the library system's Web site
at sclibs.net (the site also fea-
tures hours and locations of
all eight public libraries in the
county), or call the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-
5000 and ask about National
Library Card Sign-up Month.

GUEST WRITER

Five-year-old Hazel
expects very little out of life:
just a pat on the head as you
walk by, some Kibbels and
Bits, her favorite food, and
once in a while her most
favorite of all, a rawhide treat.
She doesn't, want a home
because, you see, she does
not yet know that she is going
to lose her present home -
the only home she has ever
known. She has to leave
because there is a personality
conflict with another female
in her house, a bull n]mastiff
who has been a member of
the family longer than Hazel
and gets to stay.
Hazel is a 40-pound black
and white collie-mix. She is
very loyal and although not a
guard dog, is always alert and
aware of her surroundings.
She is well mannered and
calm. She is not hostile or
aggressive with other animals
but is a bit skittish around


other females so she would
probably be happier in a one-
dog family.
She loves to be petted and
in fact loves any attention at
all that you give her. She does-
n't have -any favorite games
but does like to take walks or
quietly lie at your feet enjoy-
ing her rawhide treats.,
SWon't you be the one to
keep Hazel forever? She wants
to belong. She wants to be
somebody's dog and be loved
enough so that from now on
she will always have a home,
no matter what.
If you can make those sad
brown eyes sparkle with joy,
please call Englewood Animal
Rescue Sanctuary (EARS) at
475-0636. Hazel will be all
packed and ready to go to her
new home. She will have all
her shots, be spayed, and
given a complete health
checkup.
EARS is no-kill rescue facil-
ity dedicated to the care and
adoption of stray or unwant-
ed healthy pets.

Supervised by fellow Phartists, from left, Jack Perkins, Bob Woelfl and Suzie Seerey-Lester, John
Seerey-Lester captures a Maine scene on canvas.


housed in the Horizon Room,
which the owners said was
.,their "favorite water view
room." Its pastel blue decor
was quite soothing.
Generally all were pleased
with their rooms although
there was much giggling
when Bob and I tried to get
"into bed. Maureen opted to
come to the main house to
shower, rather than use the
outdoor facility at the Oil
House. I spend the night try-
ing to make sure that neither
Bob nor I fall out of bed,
which could prove deadly
from that height.
Owner Julie Burke super-
vises the meals, all of which
were prepared fresh and din-
ners featured native seafood.
She has written a Keeper's Inn
cookbook that reveals her
secrets. All breads and pas-


tries were baked fresh daily
and Chuck was quickly made
aware of the "cookie jar" that
sits in the living room and
was filled daily with fresh
baked cookies.
The painters went straight
to their painting, focusing on
the water, rocks and the light-
house our immediate sur-
roundings.
Maureen, Chuck and I (the
photographers and walkers)
hit the road and hiked around
the island. There are 18 miles
of trails, offering beautiful
Maine scenery rocky
shoreline, wooded areas,
marshes and animal life,
which includes deer, seals,
osprey and porpoise.
Relaxation, conversation,
painting, photography and
fine dining highlighted out
two-day stay on the island


and it was here on this island
that some of my pictures were
declared "worthy" and I was
acknowledged as a true
member of the "Phartists."
My favorite picture was of the
setting sun seen through the
dining room window.
.1 never did get the hang of
securing myself sufficiently to
the bed to give me peace of
mind that I would not fall out
so lack of sleep was a problem
for me but, in general, the
group gave the entire island
experience a "thumbs up."
Some members of our
.group wanted to return to the
Cockatoo restaurant in
Stonington for lunch but
those thoughts vanished
when our hostess presented
us with packed lunches
(including fresh cookies) to
eat on the 40-minute return


trip to the mainland.
Maine "phades" away
Our last stop in Maine was to
be at Camden, at the Hawthorn
Inn Bed and Breakfast owned
by Maryanne Shanahan. The
Hawthorn Inn is a Queen Anne
Victorian built in 1894 and set
back from the road on sloping
lawns on about 1.5 acres of
nicely landscaped property in,
the High Street Historic District
On the National Register of
Historic Places, the Hawthorn
Inn is an elegant and spacious
mansion with high ceilings and
lots of marvelous light pouring
in through spotlesswindows in
beautifully decorated common
rooms and guest rooms.
Again, Bob and I arrived
first, explaining the "keys in
the hat" routine to our host-
ess. She obliged and Bob and
I ended up in the Rose Room,
a rose-filled twin-bedded
room on the second floor,
overlooking the deck and a
gorgeous backyard. We had a
private bathroom with sweet-
smelling organic oatmeal
soap. The innkeeper provides
guests with zip-locked bags in
which to carry away the soap
rather than discarding it -
something I have never seen
in any hotel until then. We
also had twin beds and
bathrobes. My husband is not
fond of twin beds but the
beds are comfortable and
with no threat of falling out of
another "pea and princess"
bed, we were happy with the
accommodations.
Appropriately, the Sriyders
(the lucky guests of the Oil
House and Outhouse) drew
the key to the largest room at
the Hawthorn, a room with a.
four-poster bed and a


bath/dressing room as big as
our room. Their bathroom
had an old footed soaking
tub, a set of robes and several
chairs for relaxing. Maureen
said she needed them after
the outdoor shower on the
island. Chuck was informed
that one duty would be to
"draw a bath" for his bride.
The other rooms were so fine-
ly decorated that it was a per-
fect place in which to spend
our last two nights in Maine.
Camden is near Penobscot
Bay and has its own harbor
willed with three- and four-
masted schooners. All the
Phartists had plenty of sub-
jects to either paint or photo-
graph.
We spent the day wander-
ing around the harbor and
shopping in the quaint shops
of the village, which we could
reach by simply walking out
the back garden gate of the
inn, making sure to close the
gate so that Sophie, the resi-
dent dog/master of the house
would not wander off. That
night we dined on more
seafood at a restaurant over-
looking the harbor, watching'
schooners come and go.
Settled in for the night, we
slept like babies. The next
morning we headed down to
the veranda for breakfast of
individual broccoli and ched-
dar souffles with mixed
organic greens lightly dressed
with lemon balsamic vinai-
grette. It was served served
with sour cream and home-
made tomato salsa. Then we
headed off to capture scenes
we did not finish the previous
day.
Our entree the second
morning was the lightest waf-
fles made with fresh peaches,


nectarines and pecans and
topped with a nectarine and
Maine wild blueberry top-
ping. While it sounds like "foo
foo" food, it is so good that
Chuck and others have sec-
onds.
Maryanne told us about a
place down the coast where
we decided to go for lunch. It
took us some 25 minutes to
drive out to a lobster pound
where you sit at picnic tables
and have your lobster
steamed directly as they are
brought in from the traps. She
had a picnic basket ready for
our departure complete
with placemats, lobster dish-
es, wine glasses and all -
what class.
Most in the group had one
lobster. Bob and I opted for
the "twin lobster" plate, and
were we happy. They were
soft shell lobsters and as
sweet as they could get.
Neither one of us had the
least bit of trouble devouring
the two.
Although we were some-
what taken a back by the dis-
tance from Camden and the
small appearance of the
pound, the food, produced
certainly changed everyone's
opinion immediately and we
thoroughly enjoyed the expe-
rience. We took the occasion
to honor Chuck (our only
non-artist/photographer)
with his very own "paint by
the numbers" watercolor set
so that he too can be a paint-
ing member of the Phartists.
Our stay in Maine was
over. A lot of good photogra-
phy and painting was accom-
plished while proving that
eight very different personali-
ties can certainly enjoy 10 full
days together.

ing the box on your driver's
