of Hurricane Katrina, I knew
immediately in my heart that it
was God's plan for me to go. So I,
and seven other members from
Venice Assembly, set 6ff on Friday,
Sept. 9.
I was anxious to get there, not
knowing what to expect, but ready
to to do what I could to bring even
just a glimmer of hope and faith to
the lives of those devastated by
this storm.
We brought a trailer kitchen
that was a miraculous journey in
itself. After starting out with no
brake lights, then a flat tire and
then another flat tire, we put our
faith in God to get us through. He
did, in the way of a service station


north of Tampa on 1-75 that just
happened to be open at midnight
Friday and have four tires in the
size we needed.
We arrived early Saturday
morning in D'Iberville, Miss., on
the north side of the bay from.
Biloxi. We were to set up the
kitchen in a big tent in the parking
lot of what once was a grocery
store. It didn't take long for the tent
to fill up with supplies and by the
time the trailer kitchen arrived and
the propane tanks were filled, we
were ready to start preparing
meals, sometimes serving as
many as 1,200 at a time.'

Building a new parking lot isn't
cheap, especially when it's across
the street from Venice Beach.
On Tuesday city council will vote
on accepting a $394,000 construc-
tion contract with Ajax 'Paving
Industries to build Graser Park.
Technically, the spot for cars is the
city's newest recreation park, though
the acre-size lot across from Venice
Beach will be home to 57 parking
spots.
Other amenities include' seven
benches, a decorative fountain and
a winding sidewalk.
The park's most recent controver-
sy was over its name, for former
Mayor Merle Graser. Venice' Parks
and Recreation Advisory Board
members voted against the name
after finding out Graser's son donat-
ed a $30,000 water fountain to the
, city. ,.
There also was dissent at city
council, with the name Graser Park
passing by a 5-2 vote. Council mem-
bers John' Simmonds and 'Vicki
Taylor both voted against the name.
"(Graser) deserves to have, this
park named after him," Mayor Dean
Calamaras said at the March council
meeting. ..
The construction cost is nearly
double the original estimate. When
the concept plans were approved

Venice City Council meeting starts
at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in council
chambers at city hall. If you are dis-
abled and need assistance, contact
the city clerk's office at least 24 hours
prior to the meeting by calling 486-

The complete council agenda is
available online at venicegov.com
under the public meetings link.

seven months ago, the new park was
only supposed to cost $208,000.
That amount jumped to $340,000
in the upcoming budget and has
made its way up to $394,000. The lot
will be asphalt and have no lighting,
restroom or water services.
Venice paid $900,000 to purchase
the 0.9 acres; a state grant of
$300,000 is helping pay for the pro-
ject, Public Works Director Larry
Heath said in a previous interview.
At least $200,000 of 1-cent sales-tax
money will be used for the park,
according 1o the budget.

ASSISTANT EDITOR
Fisherman's Wharf owner John
Konecnik feels the city is doing all it
can to torpedo his wharf redevelop-
ment project before it even gets off
of the ground.
City leaders haven't been shywith
accusations of their own, stating
that Konecnik has failed to involve
the community, and his proposals
have been so poorly prepared that
applications "cannot be rationally
processed or evaluated," according
to a letter from City Manager Marty
Black.
Such is the brewing war about
what will be built at Venice
Fisherman's Wharf. Konecnik envi-
sions wide, waterfront walkways; a
686-foot floating dock with almost
half of it reserved for transient
boaters; a restaurant; and various
small stores.
And to pay for this $60 million
redevelopment project, Konecnik
wants to build a nine-story, 58-unit
condominium similar in height and
size to the Waterfront on Venice
Island towers just on the other side
of Hatchett Cteek"3ridge.
But according to wharf attorney
Bill Dooley, city staff and the city
manager are doing their best to
make sure the project is never given
a fair chance: Planning and Zoning
Director Tom Slaughter rejected the
wharf's application packet this week
because of numerous defects, and
the city manager has refused to help
Konecnik obtain state-owned prop-
erty directly next to the wharf.
"I do not want to create a totally
adversarial relationship, however, I
fear that may already exist given your
reluctance to meet with us," Dooley
wrote in a Sept. 21 letter to Black.
"If we cannot develop a spirit of
working together to try to reach
common goals, then I will have no


"I fail to see how a complet-
ed design and final project
submittal in advance of any
opportunity to carefully
evaluate ... reflects a good
faith intention to support
and work cooperatively
with the community."
City Manager Marty
Black in a letter to
Fisherman's Wharf
attorney Bill Dooley

alternative but to appear at a city
council meeting and to advise the
city that my client may very well
have to change his direction with
regard to development of this prop-
erty simply because of our inability
to have rational conversations with
the city leaders."
Go ahead
In his response letter, Black told .
Dooley to go ahead and try to con-
tact council members. The city
manager did warn the wharf lawyer
that quasi-judicial laws could
severely limit conversations because
ex-parte communication restric-
tions would apply to any rezoning
application.
Konecnik has said if rezoning
requests for the condominium pro-
ject are not granted, then he'll build
a three-story boat warehouse, as
permitted by the wharf's current
zoning.
Black rejects the assertion by
Dooley that Konecnik is trying to
involve the community in this pro-
ject.

DEVASTATION fropage A


The other tent on the site
had food and household
items that people could come
and pick up. We also bought a
donated golf cart to help
carry their items to their cars.
Local relief
The people I met were
amazing, from a group called
Hands and Feet Ministries,
and all the people from
Warehouse Church in Aurora,
Ill., to Mike, who came all the
way from Los Angeles on his
own to help.
Local people who were
blessed to have their homes
spared in the storm showed
up all the time to help out
wherever we needed them.
Two young boys, D.J. and
Dustin who lost his home
and also has multiple sclero-
sis and a hard time walking -
used the dolly from our
church to help people carry
things to their cars. I know
they received tips from some
people, but no one asked
them to work in the heat and
as hard as they did every day
from morning until night.
The second day a team of
doctors and nurses from
Sarasota was a welcome and
needed sight. More medical
people came in over the next
few days and eventually we
had a waiting room,, exam
room and even an examina-
tion table that used to be the
pharmacy counter in the gro-
cery store.
The local people were so

I didn't give it to him so
that I could brag about it, but
what I do want to brag about
is God.
Dennis told me after I gave
them to him that he had
asked God the night before to
please send him a shipment
of blankets or mattresses,
because he didn't have any-
thing. The smile on his face
when he told me, "God really
does answer prayers," was
more of a blessing to me than
that air mattress or sleeping
bag ever will be to him.
There are a few things I am
very thankful for: Venice
Assembly 'Administrative
Pastor Gil Cuadro, for orga-


what they lost, just that they
thanked God for allowing
them and their families to be
OK.
When we did take a little
time to drive around town,
there are really no words to
describe what we saw. War
zone and bomb explosions
are gross understatements for
what these people were left
with.
There was so much loss
and devastation for such a
small town, but everyone
pulled together and had
made up their minds to see
each other through.

Another gentleman I met,
by the name of Dennis,
already had a broken ankle


nizing this trip, as well as the
other members who came
and worked so hard; my
church and family, for keep-
ing us in their prayers; my
employer, Sun Trust Bank, for
allowing me to take time off;
and the D'Iberville, Miss.,
VFW for allowing all the vol-
unteers to camp on their
property and being far
enough away from the
destruction that they still had
running water and a shower.
Knowing what I know now,
would I do it again? Someone
asked me, "What was the
hardest part about being
there?"
I responded, "Leaving."

Commenting on the situa-
tion, Bruce Dillon, chair of
the Nokomis Center
Revitalization Advisory
Committee, said, "I would
hope that a sense of commu-
nity will prevail, and that
homeowners who own the
roads serving their houses
will allow central water to be
installed."
Dillon noted that Nokomis
residents now get their water
only from wells, except in a
new subdivision just north of
the revitalization area.
"Even residents who have
dug nlew wells to avoid salt-
xwatet intrusion hivehadlittle
luck. Many oi us are to close

saltwater in our. -elkl." he
observed.


The details
The widening of U.S. 41
from the Venice Bypass to
Laurel Road and improve-
ments to the existing roadway
from Laurel to State Road 681
are expected to take about 22
months.
The Florida Department of
Transportation, which is
responsible for the project,
estimates its cost will be $32.4
million.
Part of the proposed revital-
ization of the Nokomis com-
mercial corridor, approved in
2001, the highway will be bor-
dered by 4-foot-wide bicycle
paths and 8-foot-wide side-
walks.
Curbs, gutters and
drainage will be improved
along the roadway.
Improvements will be made


ANOREXIA AND THE MOUTH
Anorexia is a life-lhreatening illness characterized by a severe
disruption in eating behavior. The result is starvation. The condition is
associated with various personality changes, such as irritability. ij
increased compulsiveness, a striving for perfection, physical
overactivily, and withdrawal from social interests.
There are also may physical changes that take place, and since these
individuals are ollen intelligent high-achievers they can sometimes
recognize and confront their own problem. This usually requires time.
0 love. and the combined attention of parents, friends, and health
professionals.
The mouth is the site of many of the physical changes that result from
nutritional deficiencies and alterations in the saliva. There is often a
swelling of cheek glands causing facial distortion, generalized
gingivitis (gum disease), rapid tooth decay, enamel erosion and breath
odor problems.

County


urges


drivers:


conserve


fuel

STAFF REPORT

With Hurricane Rita
expected to disrupt fuel sup-
plies, particularly natural gas
supplies critical to the cre-
ation of electrical power,
Sarasota County officials are
urging residents to follow
fuel-conservation measures
to ensure that supplies are
available.
"We're asking Sarasota
County residents to use fuel
wisely for the next two weeks
and buy responsibly," County
Commission Chairman Paul
Mercier said. "We can make it
through with-
out major
hardship if we
all work
together."
County offi-
cials called a
team together
Friday to draft
a plan for fur-
Mercier their conser-
vation mea-
Sures by Sarasota County if it
became necessary.
In preparation for the
impact. of Hurricane Rita,
Florida -Power and Light
Company issued a call to its
customers Friday afternoon
asking them to use energy
wisely over the next few days.
FP&L had these sugges-
tions for consumers to use in
their homes to conserve fuel:
Turn up the thermostat in
your house a couple of
degrees to conserve energy.
Use curtains, shades and
blinds to keep the house cool.
Turn off the air condition-
ing when away from the
home for an extended period
of time.
Turn off lights, computers
and appliances when not in
use.
Limit the use of dish-
washers and laundry
machines and use cold water.
For automotive travel, the
American Automobile
Association recommends the
following fuel conservation
measures:
Consolidate trips and
errands. Find one location
where you can take care of all
banking, grocery shopping
and other chores.
Slow down. The faster a
vehicle travels, the more gas it
bums.
Car pool.
Avoid quick starts and
sudden stops, which also
waste fuel.
Perform routine mainte-
nance tasks on your vehicle
such as keeping tires inflated.
Lighten the load. Don't
carry extra weight in the pas-
senger compartment, trunk
or cargo area of your vehicle.
For residents who store
gasoline at their homes, offi-
cials urge you to exercise safe-
ty and caution. The following
tips from the American
Petroleum Institute provide
good guidelines:
Store gasoline in an
approved container or tank.
Keep the containers tightly
closed and handle gently to
avoid spills.
Store gasoline in a build-
ing separate from the house
or place of occupancy, such as
a shed or garage. Always keep
gasoline out of reach from
children.
For better ventilation, it is
best to handle gasoline out-
doors.
"Each of us can do our part
by adopting reasonable con-
servation habits," Mercier
said. "Small adjustments in
our everyday energy and fuel


consumption can make a sig-
nificant contribution."


County panel OK's lower speed limit


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

After a summer campaign
that collected the signatures
of more than 100 residents,
leaders of the Olde Engle-
wood Village Homeowners
Association finally got the
news they were waiting to
hear.
The Sarasota County Traf-
fic Advisory Council ap-
proved the association's peti-
tion to lower the speed limit
on Old Englewood Road
from 45 mph to 35 mph
between Artists Avenue and
West Dearborn Street.


"A lower speed limit
will give motorists
time to stop."
Jim Pollard,
President of Olde
Englewood Village
Homeowners
Associations

The advisory council also
agreed to look into adding a
no-passing zone on the
street.
The homeowners associa-


tion had requested the coun-
ty add the zone from Yale
Street to West Dearborn
Street.
Jim Pollard, president of
the association, said the
group is seeking a no-pass-
ing zone in part because of
school crosswalks on Old
Englewood Road.
It doesn't make sense to
have both crosswalks and a
passing zone, he said.
Pollard said the council
liked the idea.
"It's just a matter of how
much (of the no-passing
zone will be added) and
where," Pollard said.



,.1pp^frrigratormagne
m^^^^igoes herei


"They're going to look at
that immediately, if not
sooner."
Time
to stop
Pollard, local resident
Peter Duisberg and Taylor
Meals, who owns Buchan's
Landing Resort at the end of
West Dearborn Street and is
a member of the Englewood
Water District Board of
Supervisors, attended the
meeting in Sarasota.
Duisberg became a sup-
porter of the reduced speed
limit in April, when he was
nearly hit while crossing Old


Englewood Road.
He suffered a broken nose,
two black eyes and several
cuts from the incident.
"A lower speed limit will
give motorists time to stop,"
Pollard said.
The reduced-speed-limit
request and the request for a
no-passing zone must be
approved by Sarasota
County commissioners
before becoming official.
It is not known when the
requests will head before the
commissioners.

Midnight landscaper strikes at Kingfish Cafe


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES
Sue Laskowski, mother of the owner of Veranda Inn, Al
Laskowski, looks over some of the damage caused to landscap-
ing at the business.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A man apparently didn't like
the landscaping theme at the
Veranda Inn's Kingfish Cafe, so
he changed it under cover of
night
"He uprooted a lot of plants,
dumped the window boxes,"
cafe owner Al Laskowski's
mother Sue said. "There was
dirt all over the place."
Laskowski said the man,
who police have not yet iden-
tified, even took some of the
plants and heaved them out
onto U.S. 41 Business.
Laskowski discovered the
new landscape theme when


she came to work about 7
a.m.
'At first I thought it was
vandalism, but once I really
looked at it, I don't think he
was being malicious," Sue
said. "I just think he wanted
to rearrange things the way
he thought they should be."
The man scrounged a
small TV from the dumpster
and set it up on a concrete
wall near the cafe entrance.
He yanked the cord from an
outdoor light but it wasn't
long enough to plug into any-
thing so that didn't work out
and he couldn't watch televi-
sion.
Laskowski said the faux


landscaper found a garden
hose and connected it to the
car wash across the street.
"I have no idea why he did
that," she said. "Maybe he
wanted to water the plants."
She said the man took
some large rubber tree plants
growing near the outdoor
tables out to U.S. 41.
"He put some smaller ones
around the table," Laskowski
said. "I think he thought they
looked better there.
A midnight landscaper's
work is never done.
"I had old wicker chaise
lounge with lots of plants on
it," Laskowski said. "I guess he
didn't like that so he put those


plants by the trash cans."
She said the man worked
hard. She said some of the
plants weighed as much as 50
pounds.
Laskowski said one of her
waitresses told her that a
night clerk told her that the
guy came into the inn after he
was finished rearranging.
"Well, I'm done with my
work," the yard man said. "Is
there anything else I can do?"
Police found the man at
the gas station convenience
store opposite the inn.
He was taken into custody.

Local teachers receive Selby Foundation grants


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Whenit comes to fundingfor
supplies and class projects there
just never seems to be enough
to go around. Sixty-nine teach-
ers got a little extra help last
week when the Education
Foundation of Sarasota County,
Inc. announced Selby Building
Blocks for Success Classroom
Grants. I
The grants, totaling
$73,097, were awarded to 69
teachers at 27 Sarasota County
public schools. Community
members read and scored 180
submitted applications to
determine the recipients.
"We're really impressed with
teachers writing grants to
improve the classroom learning
experience for their students,"
said Bonita Echstenkamper,
development director with the
Education Foundation.
Echstenkamper said
teachers typically ask for extra
supplies, particularly com-
puters and camera equip-


ment. Others ask for funds for
field trips or to put on plays
that can't be afforded by the
school.
Carbo-nized classes
Jeanne Troiano, a reading
resource teacher for fourth
and fifth grades, is one of
three teachers at Garden
Elementary in South Venice
to win a grant. Troiano's grant
is to enhance her reading
class.
Two of the grant applica-
tions at Garden Elementary,
titled "Carbo-Loaded
Classrooms" and "Carbo-niz-
ing the Classroom
Environment," will be used to
implement Dr. Marie Carbo's
recorded book method to
help -struggling readers.
Carbo, a former classroom
teacher and learning disabili-
ties specialist, is founder and
executive director of the
National Reading Styles
Institute.
Troiano is using the grant
to purchase recorded "Power


Reading Paks" for each of her
students. The packs come
with headphones, a printed
book and a CD version with
20 stories and games.
Students listen to each story
at least two times, and read it
back to the teacher.
"We're looking for their flu-
ency rate and for errors as
they read," Troiano said. "We
track the errors so I can say,
'Look, you read 25 more
words than last time.' Or, 'You
made only one mistake
instead of seven.' It really
does work."
Principal Emile Quinn first
heard of Carbo's program
while teaching at Venice
Elementary. He was so
impressed he sent a team of
teachers to New Orleans ear-
lier this summer for training
by NRSI staff. The team
returned to provide in-service
training to other staff in
August.
"Now we have a body of
experts from every grade
level," Toriano said. "Literacy


is our big focus. Our school is
committed to trying this
research-based program. So
far, we've seen wonderful
gains, particularly among
young children."
Grant-ed
Troiano is actively encour-
aging others to apply for
grants to enhance the class-
room experience.
"We really appreciate the
grants because we know you
can only buy so much due to
constraints with the budget,"
Troiano said. "We're trying to
get other teachers involved.
We have a lot of experience in
writing grants. It's not hard
when you have a passion."
Jacob Ruscoe, assistant
principal at Taylor Ranch
Elementary, also recognizes
the value of seeking out
grants. It's part of his job. Four
teachers won grants at his
school.
"Our schools don't always
have the funds to get those
resources," Ruscoe said.


AND THE WINNERS ARE...
Englewood Elementary: Kimberly Douglas, Nicole Favreau
Garden Elementary: Joanna Davis, Marcy DeMaree, Jeanne
Troiano

This view from Hatchett Creek bridge shows Venice Fisherman's Wharf and the state-owned
property the fenced grass area to the right that owner John Konecnik is upset city staff
will not help him obtain, according to Konecnik's attorney.

WHARF from page lA


The application refused by
city staff was fully designed
and included the state-owned
property directly next to the
closed and decaying
Fisherman's Wharf restaurant.
"I fail to see how a com-
pleted design and final pro-
ject submittal in advance of
any opportunity to carefully
evaluate ... reflects a good
faith intention to support and
work cooperatively with the
community," Black wrote.
Nothing personal
Black goes on to empha-,
size that he has "no personal


adverse perspective or rela-
tionship with Mr. Konecnik
and have found him to be
forthright in his approach."
The problem, however, has
been in the thoroughness of
creating the wharf project
while complying with all city
laws, Black wrote.
"There have been a variety
of meetings with a cadre of
individuals representing your
client, and city staffhave will-
ingly met with and provided
guidance on city codes and
regulations and staff issues
and concerns," Black wrote.
"Despite these multiple


meetings and encounters, we
continue to receive disjointed
and uncoordinated applica-
tions that city staff have:
reported to me, cannot be
rationally processed or evalu-
ated. The materials continue
to demonstrate fundamental
inconsistencies between dis-
ciplines (of) engineering,
environmental and' land-
scape."
Messages were left Friday
with Dooley and the city
manager seeking comment.

Slow response times are
being blamed for at least
4,000 gallons of raw sewage
spilling into Hatchett Creek
on Sept. 16. Sewage contin-
ued to flow out of the 8-inch
line along Ridgewood Avenue
for at least 40 minutes while
workers mobilized, according
to Sharek and City Manager
Marty Black'
This break involved one of
the two major collector lines
that carry sewage to the treat-
ment plant in North Venice,
along Laurel Road. The other
line is a 16-inch pipe that runs
parallel to the 8-inch pipe
that broke, according to
Sharek.
Correcting line breaks
along Ridgewood Avenue and
on the island at Tarpon
Center Drive is at the top of
Venice's priority list, the city
manager said. Private con-
tractors will start replacing
Tarpon Center Drive pipes
Monday as part of the
$180,000 project.
"Tarpon Center Drive and
Ridgewood are our most visi-
ble sections environmen-
tally and geographically,"
Black said.
State engineers have been
conducting a review of
Venice's water and sewage
operations as part of a 2004
settlement agreement for
environmental protection
violations.
The results of that report
should be out within a
month, and a federal judge is
expected to hand down
penalties Oct. 28 for addition-
al violations by the city.
All of these accusations
stem from Venice violating
permit restrictions several
years ago on how much treat-


ALSO ON THE AGENDA
Venice City Council meeting starts at 1 -30 p.m. in council cham-
bers at city hall. If you are disabled and need assistance, contact
the city clerk's office at least 24 hours prior to the meeting by.
calling 486-2626. The complete council agenda is available

city's $74 million budget. There has been no opposition to the
budget so far; the next fiscal year starts Oct. 1.
* VICA ANNEXATION Final reading of an ordinance annexing
394 acres running from Laurel to Border roads. Eventual site
owner J&J Homes is expected to build about 2,700 homes on the
property, according to comments by land-use attorney Jeff
Boone during Tuesday's planning commission meeting.
* POLICE CONTRACT Council approval of the union contract

ed wastewater could be
dumped into Curry Creek. No
environmental damage has
ever been proved, but the city-
pleaded guilty to breaking the
permit laws.
Part of the settlement
agreement requires the city to
make all infrastructure
improvements the state engi-
neers say are needed -


which could prove costly.
"We have an obligation to
run that utility system as safe-
ly and soundly as possible....
If it takes $100,000, $1 million
or $10 million, the city is will-
ing to do that," Black said.

MCC prepares for

less state money


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Philip VanEss, MCC
Facilities Director, was asked
to expand on the possible
impact and how the campus-
es are preparing for reduced
funding.

Question: What does the
anticipated dip in PECO fund-
ing mean for MCC, and specif-
ically for the Venice campus?
Answer: The forecasted
decreases in PECO funding
could result in no new build-
ings being built at any MCC
campus in the next five years.
Based on projected student
enrollment growth in our
region, especially the com-
munities around MCC Venice,
that could present a serious
problem. One of the biggest
concerns at MCC Venice is the
lack of suitable parking. Some
park on the grass. Over $1
million was spent on campus
improvements this year.
Assuming we receive ade-
quate state funding, the col-
lege anticipates parking reno-
vations and expansion will
continue over the next three
years as the growth of this
campus will continue.

Q: How is MCC handling
the chasm between capital
outlay requests and actual
funding? Will it come to
deferring maintenance?
A: MCC received ade-
quate funding from the state
for the past five years, giving
the college an opportunity to
renovate or replace a signifi-
cant portion of the aging, crit-
ical infrastructure at MCC
Bradenton and MCC Venice.
A Preventive Maintenance
Program initiated by the facil-
ities department is designed
to enhance the performance
and life of infrastructure sys-


MCCf rr- a
and construction of a
remodeled Graphic
Technology/Art Building at
MCC Bradenton.
MNCC' PECO request for
2006-07 is $3.6 million,
according to VanEss.
Projects include $277,478 to
design and remodel the
music building at MCC
Bradenton, $3.32 million
for renovation projects,
most of which benefit all
college properties, and an
estimated $300,000 for roof
renovations at MCC Venice.
You can e-mail Greg
Giles at: ggiles@,venicegon-
dolier.com.

teams, such as air condition-
ing, electrical water distribu-
tion systems. Decreased
future funding will result in
deferral of projects on the
renovation/replacement list.

Q: Is MCC at a critical
juncture related to capital
funding?
A: Not at this point, but
we must plan for the future
to avoid that.

Q: What are the primary
options?
A: The legislature has
given community colleges
the option to increase Capital
Investment Program fees that
students pay per credit hour.
The college can bond pro-
jects based on future project-
ed income from those
Capital Investment Program
fees. We have the option to
bond projects once a year
through a state consortium
that helps ensure a better
bonding rate.

Q: When do you expect
to have a workshop or other-

wise formally address the
issues with the MCC Board of

A:We need to wait and
see what funding will actually

We will know that in May ,

are initial PECO projections.
Based on past years' experi-
ence, we know that there can

Q: Are there other
options for future funding
sources?
A: The Board of Trustees
and administrators will
investigate all options when
more is known about the,
availability of PECO funds.
The college's biggest priority
is to provide facilities needed
to accommodate increased

enrollment. To do this, no
option is off the table.

those affected by Hurricane
Katrina.

Each participating Sonny's
franchisee will be donating pro-
ceeds from the day's sales and
Sonny's Franchise Company
will contribute up to an addi-
tional $50,000 in matching
donations.
"It's important for us to band
together and help," said Bob
Yarmuth, CEO of Sonny's
Franchise Company. "Our
industry needs to step up and
be heard. This National
Restaurant Association initia-
tive does just that"

rants in the Venice area include
Bogey's, the Crow's Nest and
Beef O'Brady's, all of which will
be donating 10 percent of the
day's sales and accepting dona-
tions on site; Peach's; Chili's,
which will be donating 100 per-
cent of the day's profits; and
Outback, which will be donat-
ing 100 percent of the day's prof-
its, with 25 percent of that going
to Dine for America.

County commission passes resolution
favoring use of red-light cameras
The Sarasota Board of County Commissioners is backing the
creation of a grass-roots coalition to support the use of red-light
cameras at selected intersections. The commission, in a
resolution called "Green Light for Red-Light Cameras," urges all
67 Florida counties and 410 municipalities to ask the state
legislature to allow local governments to issue traffic citations ,
using red-light cameras.
Nationally, the annual monetary impact of crashes is estimated
at $14 billion. The Federal Highway Administration also
promotes red-light cameras as a viable strategy to reduce:
red-light running and save lives.
"Red-light running is aggressive driving, and using
technology to help with enforcement is just one way to improve
public safety," said Commission Chair Paul Mercier. "Sarasota
County is leading the way through the 'Green Light for Red-Light
Cameras' resolution in asking the legislature to take action and
go forward with allowing installation of red-light cameras."'
Sarasota County recently participated in the National Stop on
Red Week and launched an "I Stop on Red" community
campaign, distributing information cards and bumper stickers
through local schools, libraries and law enforcement agencies.
County officials hope this outreach will increase awareness of
the impact on the community of red-light running and lead to
positive behavioral change. Sarasota County TV 19 also
produced an "I Stop on Red" 30-second public service
announcement that is airing on the government access station
and other local commercial stations.
More information on "Green Light for Red-Light Cameras" and
"I Stop on Red" may be'found on the Sarasota County Web site
at: scgov.net/stoponred.

What FEMA gave, Medicaid took away


BYJOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER

Homeless after Hurricane
Charley, Sheryl and Ron Dio-
nisio already had enough
problems without being made
homeless by Hurricane
Katrina.
But that's what they feared
would happen after Federal
Emergency Management
Agency recertification special-
ist Ron Ness knocked on their
door last week and said he was
going to take the travel trailer
in the driveway.
"I know they need help in
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama," Sheryl said. "But I
don't think the answer is to
take the trailers we need and
send them to Katrina's vic-
tims."
"They're saying they need it
in about two, .three weeks,"
Ron said. "But it's going to be
three months before every-
thing that needs to be done in
our house is done."
Relax, FEMA spokeswo-
man Mildred Acevedo said.
Apparently, there's been a mis-
understanding, she said.
"We're not asking anyone to
leave their units ahead of time
because we need them for
Katrina or whatever," she said.
"The units we are using are
those that are empty."
When Ness knocked on the
Dionisio's door, he might have
assumed the trailer was empty
because the house appears
inhabited, Acevedo said.
But that's not the case, the
Dionisios say.
"There's a good portion of it
finished," Ron said. "But I
don't have the front porch and
the front roof finished yet. And
the master bedroom is not
done."
The Dionisio's home -
which was uninsured was
made unlivable by Charley.


The Dionisios, their six chil-
dren and one grandson, were
forced to stay with Ron's father
and Sheryl's sister before
receiving a $7,000 check from
FEMA and a 30-foot travel
trailer in November.
"We have to do all the
repairs ourselves because the
money simply will not cover
labor, just barely materials,"
Sheryl said.
With some adjustments,
the house was made habitable
for the children while Ron and
Sheryl subsisted in the trailer.
They were slowly but surely
repairing the damage. While
Ron often worked six days a
week as a roofer, Sheryl fixed
what she could in the house
they'd lived in since 1994.
Until April 2.
$7,000 Catch-22
"I wound up at the emer-
gency room," Sheryl said. "I
was in extreme pain. I had
what I call a 'total body melt-
down,' no doubt from all the
stress."
If only it were that simple,
she now wishes.
Since then, Sheryl has been
hospitalized four times and
undergone two major surg-
eries. An ovary and her gall-
bladder have been removed.
"I weighed 110 pounds
before I got so sick and am
now a very weak, frail and
mostly bedridden 88
pounds," she said.
She has been diagnosed
with gastritis, ulcerative colitis,
"dumping syndrome" with the
gallbladder's removal, diver-
ticulosis and asthma.
"All of which I am being
treated for, with little
progress," she said. "I also
have three cysts on my left
ovary, an enlarged and very
painful uterus, and both kid-
neys have multiple stones, for
which I cannot afford to be


treated."
Sheryl said she needs
"major reconstructive sur-
gery," or she could get peri-
tonitis.
"I have no medical insur-
ance, and due to the hurricane
and my health problems, I
simply cannot work," she said.
Ron and Sheryl used almost
$3,000 of their $7,000 FEMA
stipend to pay doctors and
purchase medications.
They applied for Medicaid.
After two months, they were
approved for the "Medically
Needy" program. This gives
unemployed Sheryl a $626
monthly deductible and
employed Ron a $488 thresh-
old.
"I have to incur that much
debt each month before
Medicaid will help pay for that
month's bills," she said. "They
will not pay my almost $50,000
in hospital bills because in
April, we had too much
money in the bank."
That "too much money"
was the $7,000 they'd received
from FEMA to repair their
house.
"FEMA told us the state of
Florida is not supposed to
count that money as an asset,"
Sheryl said. "The state of
Florida says otherwise."


Habitat for Humanity


gives locally, nationwide


BYANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


Venice-Area Habitat for
Humanity is-urging local resi-
dents to give from their
hearts. Although the group is
not running any local hurri-
cane relief efforts, adminis-
trators are still hoping that
residents in the area continue
to contribute to the interna-
tional effort to help Hurricane
Katrina victims.
"Habitat
International
is running a
great pro-
gram, and
,' they make it
easy to
A__ ^ donate," said
Judy Wilcox,
Wilcox executive
Wilcox director of the
Venice-Area
Habitat for Humanity. "When
people call and want to do
something, I send them to the
Web site, habitat.org."
Once on the Habitat for
Humanity Web site, those
wishing to give can follow the


links to make a direct dona-
tion. There are also directions
for those who prefer to make
their donation by check.
"And for those people
(who) choose to write checks,
we're happy to forward those
checks that are dropped off to
Habitat International," Wilcox
said.
After Hurricane Katrina
devastated the Gulf Coast of
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama, Habitat for Hu-
manity International an-
nounced a disaster-response
initiative to help people in
that area rebuild new homes
through its program.
Being constructive
On the local front, the
Venice-Area Habitat for
Humanity is preparing to
start construction on two new
houses in North Port.
"We're getting ready to
begin work on house num-
bers 31 and 32 in North Port.
We're just waiting for the final
design renderings on one,
and on the land survey for the
other before we begin con-


struction," said Wilcox.
Barring any delays in the
design renderings, construc-
tion on house number 31 on
Sablon Road is slated to begin
within the next 10 days. The
group plans to start building
house No. 32 on Floribanna
Street within the month.
"The families are ready to
get to work," Wilcox said,
referring to the fact that fami-
lies who qualify to receive a
home must assist with the
construction. "They have to
put in 300 hours of their own
time, but they're so excited."
Habitat for Humanities is a
nonprofit, nondenomina-
tional Christian housing
organization that builds
affordable houses that their
partner families help build
and eventually own through a
no-profit, no-interest mort-
gage.

Siegal coaching

in California

Former Venice High foot-
ball coach Andy Siegal is alive
and well and now living in
California. He is the offensive
coordinator and quarterbacks
coach at The College of the
Sequoias inVisalia.
Siegal's new team is unde-
feated and ranked No. 8 in the
nation according to JC
Gridwire. The Sequoias have
the second-ranked offense in
the nation and are averaging
50.1 points a game.
Siegal is credited with
building the foundation that
eventually led to Venice win-
ning a state championship in
2000.

A couple of things that are
getting old at Venice High vol-
leyball matches.
One is the constant playing
of "Sweet Home Alabama"
during warm-ups. We're not in
Alabama. This is Florida. If
you insist on playing Skynard,
how about one of their better
tunes like "Saturday Night
Special" or "That Smell"?
Also, the drumming at the
matches borders noise pollu-
tion. Don't get .me wrong. I
love their -spirit. It's great
they're out there supporting
the Lady Indians. But how
about a horn or bass?
Something at least a little bit
musical, maestro.
e *
This one just plain puzzles
me. Why do the Venice
Women's Sailing Squadron
call themselves the "Bitter
Ends." It conjures up some
negative images to average
Joe. Bitter Ends ... did they
have nasty divorces? Do jeal-
ous competitors cut each
other off at the end of races?
Someone tell me what's the
hubbub.

They kicked Temple out of
the Big East for being gosh
awful..
How about kicking
Kentucky out of the SEC for
the same reason?
Florida battered Kentucky
for the 20th straight time
Saturday. It's like playing
another MAC team, for crying
out loud.

The last we heard, Venice
High is still looking for a girls
softball coach.
Amy Kanter stepped down
at the end of the season in
May.

Covering the pass has not
been one of Venice High's
strong suits this season.
With touted receiver Sam
Shields III and sure-armed
quarterback Darante Hunter
coming to Powell-Davis
Stadium Friday night, the sky
was the limit for the Booker
football team.
Hunter fired five touch-
down passes four of them
to Shields and the Tornado
defense rose up to shut down
Venice in a 43-14 non-district
victory.
Booker improved its
record to 3-1. Venice fell to 1-
4.
Hunter and Shields were
definitely in a zone Friday
night.
Hunter completed 11 of 13
passes for a whopping 248
yards. Shields, who has ver-
bally committed to the
University of Miami, grabbed
nine passes for 206 yards. The
two connected on scoring
plays covering 7,62,54 and 20
yards.
"They are so explosive,"
said Indian coach Nick
Coleman. "Their quarterback
was on for sure and Shield
made some great athletic
plays. I thought our kids hung
in there. They just made all
the plays."
The Booker Nation ran out
to a quick 13-0 lead early in
the first quarter with Hunter
connecting with Shields for
two TD passes.
Venice wasn't about to lay
down.
Venice fought back to cut it
to 13-7 with an 11-play drive
covering 82 yards. A big play
was a 25-yard completion
from Matt Wickwire to tight
end Ilya Vasilevskiy, putting
the ball at the Tornado 43. Six
plays later, running backTony
Charles broke free for a 23
yard TD run.
Booker fumbled the ball
away on the kickoff return,


putting the Indians in busi-
ness at the Tornado 35. Kiki
Merzius ripped off a 23-yard
gain to take the ball to the 12.
On a third and eight call from
the 9, Wickwire found
Vasilevskiy over the middle in
the end zone. Ben Shipps'
extra point gave the Indians a
14-13 lead early in the second
quarter.
"We know that Venice is
resilient in the Teepee,"
Booker head coach Fred
Gilmore said.
Booker was also resilient in
the Teepee Friday night.
It took the Tornadoes just
three plays to regain the lead.
On a first down call from his
own 46, Hunter pump-faked
and fired long for Shields,
who jumped and grabbed the
ball for his third TD of the
night.
Hunter and Shields
hooked up on a 20-yard scor-
ing play to make it 26-14 at
the half.
Booker blanked Venice 17-
0 in the second half.
Breaking the Indians' back
was an interception return for
a touchdown by linebacker
Darian Platt early in the third
quarter. The play covered 35
yards and made it 32-14 with
8:21 still remaining in the
third quarter.
The Tornado defense took
over from there. Venice did
not register a first down the
rest of the game. The Indians
were forced to throw, and the
Booker "D" and the MGs teed
off on Wickwire, sacking him
four times. The Tornadoes
also held Charles and
Merzius in check in the sec-
ond half.
Charles finished with 70
yards rushing, while Merzius
had 50. Charles had 18 yards
in the second half and
Merzius only 7.
"Our defensive coordina-
tor got in the way," said
Gilmore, blaming himself for
Venice's two TDs. "In the first
half, we tried to do too many
things. We took the idiot out

of the game and let the play-

Behind down 18 points
early in the third quarter
made Venice change its game
plan.
"The interception hurt,"
Coleman said.
"We tried to make things
happen. Looking back,

DiGiacomo shocks with resignation


Veteran coach led Venice High girls basketball
team to berth in State Finals in 2004-5 season.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It's not every day when a
coach who nearly won a state
championship just up and
quits.
That strange day came
Friday at Venice High when
girls basketball coach Joe
DiGiacomo handed in a letter
of resignation to athletics
director Larry Sandburg.
Just seven months ago,
DiGiacomo and trusty assis-
tants Cayll Smith and Gary


Halbert piloted the Lady
Indians to the Class 5A State
. Final, where the locals fell in a
very close contest to Fort
Lauderdale-Dillard. Venice
finished with a sparkling
record of 25-7.
DiGiacomo, who compiled
a 98-80 record in six years as
head girls coach at VHS, sim-
ply felt he didn't have enough
support from the athletic
department.
"You need to have a coach
who is on campus," said
DiGiacomo, who teaches


DIGIACOMO
phys ed at Pine View School.
"I tried to get in at Venice
High for seven years. I've seen


them bend over backwards to
get other guys in. It was a slap
in the face."
DiGiacomo said he will still
coach volleyball, basketball
and track and field at Pine
View.
"They treat me great," he
said. "I'm very happy. And
now I'll also have more time
to spend with my kids."
DiGiacomo and his lovely
wife Liz have three young-
sters in Joeli, 3, Ellie, 2, and
Joey, 5 months. There are also
oldsters in the house -
Amanda, 15, and Timmy, 13.
Liz was surprised that her
husband was leaving the VHS
girls job.


"I know it was a tough
decision for him," she said.
"He cares a lot about the girls
on the team."
With his buddy stepping
down, Smith announced he
also will no longer be coach-
ing at 1 Indian Ave.
"With Joe going, it just
wouldn't be the same," said
Smith, who posted 500 wins
as head girls hoops coach at
Riverview High. "Candy
(Millington, VHS principal)
was great to the staff. It wasn't
that way across the board."
Smith helps coach football
at Riverview and said he will

Crash course: New Florida rules of the road to start


A number of new laws carry penalties that could

affect your driver license and some of them

have nothing to do with driving.


BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER

In Florida, everybody talks
about the traffic and near-
ly everybody has some defi-
nite thoughts on what to do
about it.
That's because, next to the
weather, navigating Florida's
congested highways is proba-
bly the most universal
calamity shared by state resi-
dents.
With explosive growth
overwhelming an already
congested system of local,
state and federal roadways,
it's no surprise traffic woes
and housing prices run neck
and neck for the top spot in
most polls gauging the dissat-
isfactions of Florida's citizens.
However, while govern-
ments big and small, from
Tallahassee to Key West,
struggle with the glacially
slow process of planning and
building new roads, there is
no dearth of tinkering with
traffic statutes in a relentless
search for ways to surmount
the myriad of challenges fac-
ing Florida's drivers.
Of the hundreds of new
laws approved by the 2005
Florida Legislature, the very
first to be vetoed by Gov. Jeb
Bush was a traffic law.
Despite the failure of the
Anti-Road Rage Act to win the
approval of the state's chief
executive, the philosophical
debates it triggered among
legislators and motorists
throughout the state the
measure would have required
drivers traveling in the left
lane to yield to faster drivers
approaching from behind -
illustrated the near-universal
interest in finding ways to
make Florida driving
smoother and safer.

Light and sound
More than 60 additions'
and revisions to Florida's traf-
fic statutes were approved by
the Legislature and signed
into law by Gov. Bush this
year.
Some were mere "glitch"


measures, designed to gently
tweak the legal language and
interpretation of existing
laws, while others introduced
important new changes that
will affect all Florida
motorists, how they drive and
the penalties they face for fail-
ing to heed the rules of the
road.
Among the new traffic laws
now in effect statewide:
A turn signal must be
used whenever you change
lanes for any reason.
Beginning Oct. 1, the
penalty for running a red light
for first-time offenders will
increase.
Drivers may be pulled
over and cited if anyone
inside their vehicle under the
age of 18 is observed to be not
wearing their seat belt.
People who race others
on public roads face new
sanctions as well. A second
violation within five years
may result in seizure and per-
manent forfeiture of the dri-
ver's vehicle under the Florida
Contraband Forfeiture Act,
and license revocation for a
year.
Sound from a car's sound
system may not be heard
more than 25 feet away.
Aiming a laser-pointing
device at a car, boat or aircraft
is now a third-degree felony. If
an injury results from the
infraction, the offense will be
considered a second-degree
felony that could result in a
sentence of up to 15 years in
prison and a $15,000 fine.
The penalties for failing
to show up for court-ordered
genetic testing in a child cus-
tody case can now include
suspension of license and
registration.
Motorcycle handlebars
can be as high as the top of
the shoulders of the driver
when seated on the vehicle.
Any driver convicted of a
traffic offense that results in
serious injury to others will
have to pay an additional civil
penalty of up to $500, and up
to $1,000 in the event of
death. Money collected from

lanes to give safety room for officers, as required by law.


the additional penalty will go
to the Florida Department of
Health to fund trauma cen-
ters around the state.
Driving through a rail-
road crossing without suffi-
cient undercarriage clearance
is now a moving violation,
The minimum speed for
driving in a 70 mph zone has
been raised to 50 mph.
License plate frames can-
not block any part of the word
Florida, the registration stick-
er or any numbers or letter on
a vehicle's license plate.
A new statute reinforces
the state's legal position that
the requirement for a full-face


photograph on a driver's
license supersedes an indi-
vidual's right to religious
expression.
When a vehicle or vessel
not lawfully parked is in the
process of being towed, the
tow operator must stop when
the driver seeks return of the
vehicle or vessel, and pays a
reasonable amount of service
fee.
Anyone harassing, teas-
ing or interfering with dogs or
horses being used by law
enforcement or emergency
personnel in the perfor-
mance of their duties are now
committing a second-degree


misdemeanor. If the animal is
injured or unable to continue
,performing its duties, viola-
tors must pay restitution to
cover medical costs, or the
replacement cost of the ani-
mal.
Restaurants licensed to
sell wine may now allow cus-
tomers to leave the premises
with one unsealed bottle of
wine providing the patron
purchased a full-course meal,
consumed a portion of the
wine with the meal, the bottle
is securely resealed by the
licensee or an employee of
the restaurant, placed in a
bag or other separate con-


trainer, secured in such a
manner that it is readily
apparent if it has been
reopened or tampered with,
and accompanied by a
receiptfor the wine and full-
course meal. If transported in
a motor vehicle, it must be in
a locked glove box or trunk, or
behind the last upright seat if
there is no trunk.
A bottle of wine meeting all
these conditions will not be
considered an open contain-
er of alcohol under Florida
traffic law.

Pastor takes time for president during relief effort


BY JENA HOWARD
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

President George Bush
shook hands with Gil Cuadro,
a local pastor, and thanked
him for the help he and his
mission team offered victims
of Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi,
Miss.
Cuadro serves as adminis-
trative pastor for the Venice
Assembly of God church, 695
Center Road. The church
donated supplies and a
portable kitchen lent to it by
the Royal Rangers (a boys
group at the church) along
with a golf cart, to Biloxi,
where volunteers set up in a
200-foot-by-100-foot tent.
They left the kitchen and golf
cart there until they are no
longer needed to feed hurri-
cane victims and relief work-
ers.
"It was something we were
proud to be a part of. We were
able to make a difference,"
Cuadro said. "When we left, a
group from NewYork came in
to take over the daily feeding,
and when they leave they will
turn it over to another group
of volunteers."
The menus included
open-faced turkey sandwich-
es, baked ziti, spaghetti with
garlic bread, tuna-fish casse-
role and lots of vegetables.
Breakfasts consisted of pan-
cakes, scrambled eggs, and
sausage with fresh Florida
orange juice.

ers, the military, the homeless
and anyone else who needed
food. Between meals, the
team went to the tent next
door and helped distribute
food, water, ice, baby items -
anything to help the residents
return to "normal."
Team members slept on

kitchen, in sleeping bags,
Cuadro said.
VIP visitor
Cuadro was meeting with
the coordinator of the food
tents in Gulfport, Miss., Sept.


13 in order to get more food
when a Secret Service officer
approached them and said
no one could leave the tented
area. Everyone there needed
to be security-scanned
because someone very
important was coming who
wanted to thank them.
At first they were reluctant
because they were so busy,
they but complied with the
request. About 10 minutes
later, President George Bush
entered the tent, surrounded
by the Secret Service officers.
The president took time to
shake everyone's hand or give
a hug.
In addition to Cuadro, the
mission team include Bob
Enloe, Kim Forte, Peter
Mosher, Ken Fiebke, Dan
Drumgool, Aaron Laing,
Louis Lawson, Mike
Drumgool and Don O'Shea.
"I was really excited to see
people come together for a
common cause, of service to
their fellow man, not letting
denomination or race or any
other issues get in the way."
Cuadro said. "People wanting
to help came from as far away
as Wisconsin, New York, the
West Coast, the East Coast,
the North from across the
country to help."

i OUR VIEW



Our lawmakers must stand firm against drilling


t appears that $3-per-gallon gasoline
and pressure from other states has
forged a split in the ranks of weak-
kneed Florida legislators who have tra-
ditionallyv been opposed to oil and gas
drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
If lawmakers go against constituents'
wishes and their own promises to
appease their colleagues in Congress, we
should make them pay for it in the 2006 elec-
tions.
The crack in the armor began to show this
week when at least three Republican repre-
sentatives signaled they would be willing to
work on a deal to allow gas and oil drilling in
the Gulf of Mexico. Rep. Michael Bilirakis, R-
Tarpon Springs; Rep. Cliff Steams, R-Ocala;


and Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Chumuckla, said they
will draft a proposal to allow drilling with
some protection for Florida's coastline.
Rep. Katherine Harris, R-Sarasota, said:
"What I want to do is be in a better negotiat-
ing position. I have not supported drilling in
the gulf. If they (other members of Congress)
can override us anyway, it is important we
negotiate our way into a better position."
Her argument mirrors the general belief
among Florida's lawmakers that Congress
plans to allow drilling no matter what, and it
will be better to cooperate and negotiate for
some protections such as a 100-mile
buffer than to be shut out of the process.
We understand that logic, but we do not
believe they should desert their principles.


Once the drilling rigs go up, there will be no
retreat. In 10 years when the president's
brother is no longer the governor the oil
rigs will creep closer to our sugar-white
beaches. Meanwhile, pipelines carrying the
oil to refineries will snake their way along our
coastline underneath surfers, swimmers and
recreational boaters oblivious to their exis-
tence.
Rep. Mark Foley's position along with
that of Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez -
remains firm. "I am very concerned that it's a
negotiation that is happening prematurely,"
Foley said of the move to compromise.
Mark Ferrulo, executive director of Florida
Public Interest Research Group, is unhappy
with the new posture of some Florida repre-


sentatives.
"They're saying, 'Let's assume we're going
to lose so let's get the best deal possible.'
That's not the kind of leadership we want to
send to Washington people who are not
willing to fight the fight to protect our coast,"
he said.
We felt Gov. Jeb Bush would be able to
protect the gulf coast from drilling. Now, with
neither the White House nor the governor
having a stake in the 2008 elections, there
seems to be no help in sight for Florida.
We would rather see our delegation go
down fighting than succumb to pressure.
Giving their approval for any plan to drill is
tantamount to. the betrayal of their con-
stituents' trust.


Happy 10th

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Delay height decision until snowbirds return


Editor:
This maximum-height issue is the critical decision for the
future character of Venice. We all know this.
But how many property owners and taxpayers will not be
consulted or have the chance to attend any important meeting
on this, the big issue, because they live in Venice for only
around half of the year, November through April?
If democracy is to be seen to work, there must be no deci-
sion on this maximum-height question without first having
given all Venice property owners their chance of a say. If that
means postponing a final decision on this until sometime after
November, or even next January or February, when most of the
seasonal residents are back in town, so be it.
All of the people must at least be be given the chance to give
their opinion. It is our city, too, you know.
Personally, I am a Mike Miller supporter, but it seems to me
that it is the clear wish of Venice taxpayers to restrict the height
of new buildings in crucial areas so as to maintain the charac-
ter that the people want for the heart of Venice.
Our city manager and council know this full well, so let them
now do their duty by all of Venice's taxpayers.

Editor
At Tuesday's planning
commission meeting there
were 230 people in the audi-


ence to protest the Royal

That's quite a contrast to the
number of people (two) who,
in November 2001, objected
to the building of the three,

Why? Are citizens more
likely to object because of
NIMBY? Were the three tow-
ers not in anyone's backyard,-
or have the three towers
become a wake-up call to
Venice citizens or both of
the above?
Perhaps now more people
in Venice will take time to

SHAVE IT! DOES THE VENICE POLICE DEPARTMENT ISSUE TOO MANY
? CALL US AT 207-111.


Pave the road, argue later

Just fix it. About the question whether Sarasota County
should pay more than 2 percent of the cost of the Knights Trail-
Laurel Road intersection improvements, my answer is, what
difference does it make? Just fix up the road. So many times
people bicker over cost and this and that and everything drags
on while people are getting injured or killed. I think we should
just fix the road and figure it out afterward. A lot of times roads
are dangerous and go without fixing because the bean coun-
ters are going at it.


What did we get? The
Katrina disaster what
would you expect from a
president? Day one plan-
ning, assigning staff, organiz-
ing relief, organizing aviation
and transportation assets,
arranging to assign heli-
copters and have them in
place in New Orleans and
Keesler Air Force Base. Day
two C130s doing turn-
arounds, dropping food,
water, ice, medical supplies at
Keesler Air Force Base and
New Orleans airport. Also,
president and appropriate
mayor and governors do hello
visits to New Orleans,
Covington, Gulfport, Biloxi,
and others and agree on a
coordinated relief effort. Day
three Washington bigwigs
on site observing their subor-
dinates' performance, mak-
ing adjustments for a perma-
nent recovery plan. What did
we get? Day one nothing.
Day two nothing. Day
three president interrupts
his Crawford vacation and
political trip to California for
2,500 foot, 300-mph fly-by,
meets Air Force One on his
way back to Washington and
gives, advice to victims and
volunteers to call the Red
Cross.
Accountability? Regarding
Hurricane Katrina, shame,
shame, shame. Where is the
accountability? Shame,
shame, shame.
Shouldn't pay. Regarding
your latest question I do
not believe that Sarasota
County should pay more than
2 percent for the Knight's
Trail-Laurel Road intersection
impprovements.
Forgotten. Hurricane
Katrina the president has
certainly dropped the ball.
When they had Camille, they
had 30,000 troops down there
the next day. He sent about
1,000. It's horrible what's hap-
pening to those people,
they've been forgotten. If it
weren't for the TV, I don't
think anybody would have
done anything. And now they
say the president's going to
make heads roll, but it should
start with him. And another
little-known fact they have
someone that lives in New
Orleans with a Web site -
they're shooting the dogs. I
know it's hard enough to help
the people but now they're
going to kill all the animals.


When the people get on the
bus, they're not allowed to
take any pets. They grab the
puppy out of the little boy's
arms and just throw him on
the ground. On MSNBC last
night they had some man that
swam with his two dogs to
safety. I don't know what he's
going to say when they tell
him they're going to shoot his
dogs. Something should be
done. Some animal welfare
should get in there.
How fortunate. I just can't
resist. How wonderful it is
that the complainers who
complain about almost
everything get their feelings
published in this paper. Why
are their complaints pub-
lished? Because this is
America, land of the free.
Freedom to speak our mind.
Even,with all our country's
problems, how fortunate we
are.
No questions. See what
happens when you put an oil-
man in charge of oil? I don't
think anybody could have
any questions any more.
Clone gasoline. I have an
opinion on what's going on in
New Orleans and also the gas
- situation. I can't believe it's
been five days and there are
still people waiting to be
helped. It just seems that we
have an administration that's
sort of out of focus and out of
touch with what's happening.
Also, speaking of administra-
tion, look at the oil. At this
point I haven't heard of any
oil company giving any kind
of money. It seems to me if
they could clone a sheep and
they want to clone a human
being, why can't they clone
gasoline? Make it out of grass
clippings, leaves, branches,
water. A living organism
could be cloned, I believe
gasoline could be too. You
know the reason why they
haven't is because there are
too many people in high
places who won't make
enough money off of it. Who
do we have in charge with lots
of friends in high places who
are making the money? You
know what they say, crap runs
downhill.
Bring them back. The Bush
adininstration has no plan to
get out of Iraq. Now is the
time to bring our guys home.
Let them help out in New
Orleans and also bring our
money back, we could use it

people have gone through.
The president's head should
roll. FEMA's head should roll.
But just now, FOX rescued a
man and woman. As they left
their house, they locked their
door with their three dogs
inside. Those dogs are going
to have a slow, agonizing
death. It would have been
better to just shoot them.
They're just going to slowly
starve to death. This is a sin.
The humane society is going
to try to rescue some. But,
there's no one looking out for
the animals, no one at all. Just
like the president didn't look
out for the people.

Community Foundation of
Venice." That fix didn't heal
the wounds of those who had
worked so hard to set up
"The Venice Foundation."
The foundation's ventures
outside its service area with
meetings and promotions
have been a continuing irri-
tant. It has not involved the
community to the same
extent it originally did. Yet
the foundation has contin-
ued to grant money, about $6
million a year, as it has grown
to more than $180 million,
including the $18 million
that reverted to it when Bon
Secours sold this year.
It has made many worth-
while initiatives in recent
years, maybe the most
notable being the start-up
funding of the community
health initiatives. It has a
program called Building
Better Boards that is aimed at
helping develop nonprofit
boards; it has been quite
worthwhile. It formed a new
arm aimed at real estate
investments that might be
donated to it while building
the funds of the foundation.
Its first venture into that
area took on a much differ-
ent look as it boldly took on
dealt to purchase a $60 mil-
lion parcel of land with- the
hope of helping solve the
lower-income housing prob-
lem facing our communities.
The foundation's work on
that project and most of its
works have been in the back-
ground. It only rarely shares
its visions with the commu-
nities it serves, only rarely
seeks input or convenes peo-
ple to look for solutions.
Yet it still pours millions of

We found out last week that
11 categories were being
judged by a couple of papers
in Louisiana. Unfortunately,
they all got destroyed.
The good news is some
categories were judged else-
where, and we have found
out about some awards we
won. Kim Cool got a first
place for environmental
writing. Rob Broyles, one of
our talented artists, received
a first place and a second
place in artist illustration.
There are more to come,
we hope.

Scott Thompson said he
had a great vacation but
he's glad to be back to the
old grind.


The Venetian Waterway
Park trail is moving along on
the east side, where they are
pouring the cement for the
sidewalk, more than a mile
when done, between Venice
Avenue and the Circus
Bridge. That should be com-
pleted in a couple of months.
The rest of it is getting bid
out.
The opening of the old
chamber building at the
trailhead continues to get
moved back. They are getting
ready to landscape it now. I
have surmised it is hard to
open that without the rest of
the trail in front of the
Waterfront condos being fin-
ished.

Today's ism (seen in a gift
shop in Belle Buckle, Tenn.):
A woman is like a tea bag -
you never know how strong it
is until it's in hot water. This
was attributed to Eleanor
Roosevelt.
*******
Luci Rich, our local nurse
helping out hurricane vic-
tims in Pensacola, reported
there is still a lot of work to be
done. On Tuesday this week


there were more than 2,000
people in the sun waiting to
get help. Many were coming
from areas that were not well
equipped or were unable to
help. Of these about 10 per-
cent needed to see a nurse,
while others needed money
or gas.
Finally, Luci got assistance
from many other nurses, so
she has returned to Venice. I
got a chance to talk to her on
her return flight.
She had finally gone out
and bought a glucose meter,
as diabetics were one of her
big concerns. Money she had
from Women's Sertoma was
really able to solve some
problems she could see first-
hand.
One of the most shocking
things to me was that the Red
Cross did not allow dispens-
ing drugs such as insulin. She
saw a lot of people she could
have helped but was not
allowed to. She had finally
got insulin but was told to get
rid of it as she was not
allowed to administer any.
The same held true with
asthmatics who were affect-
ed by mold.
It was always my belief that
what the Red ,Cross did help
was heal those in need. It also
wouldn't accept goods or
food such as canteens from
other groups. Obviously it is
not just the government that
needs rethinking.
I am awfully proud of the
work Luci did.

Bumper sticker: A fine is a
tax for doing wrong. A tax is a
fine for doing well.

Clearing up road rule confusion


BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER


Here are some road rules
you might not know about -
and the straight dope on
some you might think you do:
1) Since 2002, a law has
been in effect requiring dri-
vers approaching a stopped
law enforcement or emer-
gency vehicle to move out of
the lane immediately adja-
cent to it or, if that is not pos-
sible, to slow down to at least
20 mph below the posted
speed limit.
During the five-year peri-
od between 1996 and 2000,
motorists in Florida crashed
into working law enforce-
ment vehicles stopped or
parked along Florida road-
ways 1,793 times, causing five
fatalities and injuring 419.
According to the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, road-
side accidents involving offi-
cers performing traffic
enforcement duties remain
'the third leading cause of
death among all law enforce-
ment officers.
2) In storm-wracked
Florida where power outages
are not uncommon, an inop-
erable traffic signal must be
treated as a four-way stop.


The first vehicle to reach the
intersection should move for-
ward first. If two vehicles
reach the intersection at the
same time, the driver on the
left should always yield to the
driver on the right.
3) It is illegal to drive with
an open container of an alco-
holic beverage in your pos-
session and, the way the law
is written, possession is large-
ly in the eyes of the officer on
the scene. Generally speak-
ing, according to a Florida
Highway Patrol spokesman, if
a container with an alcoholic
beverage is anywhere within
reach of the driver, it's a viola-
tion and that includes any
bottles, cans or cups that
have been hastily emptied
and dropped under or behind
the seat, that the officer finds
cold or wet to the touch and
aren't locked in the trunk. If a
passenger is holding an open
container of an alcoholic bev-
erage, the passenger may be
cited for a nomnoving viola-
tion of the law.
4) A speed limit sign is a
traffic device intended to
control the speed of drivers
from the point where it
stands beside the road and
beyond. Even when drivers
are within reading distance of


a sign displaying a different
speed ahead of them, they are
still under a legal obligation
to obey the last speed limit
sign they passed until they
come abreast of the next one.
5) Flashing hazard lights
on vehicles are to be used
only to indicate a vehicle is
stopped or disabled. Drivers
who turn them on while con-
tinuing to drive in blinding
rainstorms as an indication to
others they are traveling at a
reduced speed create a con-
fusing hazard of their own,
and are a danger to others.
6) Cameras mounted at
intersections cannot be used
for the enforcement of
Florida's traffic laws.
7) There is also no law
against driving with a foot
protruding from a vehicle's
window as long as the foot
protrudes no more than .6
inches beyond the edge of the
body of the vehicle the
same distance allowed by
statute for anything to stick
out a moving vehicle's win-,
dow.
8) According to the
Florida's Driver's Handbook
distributed by the state
Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles: "A
yellow light means stop if you


can. The light will soon be
red." Accelerating when a
green traffic light turns yellow
to beat the impending red is
not a statutory option. So if
the light turns red before a
driver's vehicle has complete-
ly passed the light, it can be
considered a violation by an
observing law enforcement
officer.
9) There is no law in
Florida statute regulating the
type of footwear that may or
may not be worn by drivers. It
is not illegal to drive while
wearing flip-flops or barefoot.
10) Unless you're driving
an emergency vehicle, you
must pull to the shoulder to
allow a funeral procession to
pass by. Cars in a funeral pro-
cession may proceed through
intersections "regardless of
any traffic control devices or
right of way provisions,"
according to statute. If you're
part of the procession, you
must have your lights on. And
except in cases of gross negli-
gence, funeral homes are not
held responsible for any
death or injury occurring in a
traffic accident involving a
funeral procession.

Team believes in 'old-fashioned' values


By DONNA DAVIDSON
FEATURES EDITOR
"Quality, reliability, honesty." That is
what the; owners of Blue Dolphin
Builders believe in. Their business
philosophy is simple.
"Building homes requires a dedication
to old-fashioned craftsmanship,
and good people who care about doing
what's right for the customer, their
co-wo6rkers and the company.
We strive to exceed our customers'
expectations for workmanship,,
value, and customer service
with every home we build.
Our word is our bond.
We adopt our client's goals
and achieve their objective. ".
We're a company you can count on.
Our clients will always be treated
in th4 most honest, fair,
and professional manner."


Richard A. Dugas, president, is a .
Florida-certified residential contrac-
tor and heads up this established
local company. He has more than 30
years building experience in his
native state, Rhode Island, and here in
Florida, including building luxury
homes on Casey Key. His company is
a member of the Southwest Florida
Better Business Bureau and the
Charlotte County Chamber of Com-
merce.
Richard believes that what really
sets his company apart from other
builders are the many features he
includes in all his homes as standard,
not upgrades.
From 1972 through 1994 he owned.
a construction company up north,
where he was involved in new resi-
dential construction, commercial '
construction, additions and remodel-
ing.

JIome after fiurricane Charley
W ith the recent national reports of Hurri-
cane Katrina, Southwest Florida is once
again reminded of the devastation that
can be caused by a deadly category 4 or 5 hurricane.
Charlotte County has just spent a year recovering
from the effects of last year's biggest local newsmaker,
Hurricane Charley. While recovery and rebuilding is
now focused on the Southern states of Mississippi,
Alabama and Louisiana, Charlotte County is still in
the home and business reconstruction enterprise.
This process has inspired new and creative trends in
home construction, remodeling, design and ameni-
ties.
Expo Marketing Inc., producer of the 3rd Annual
Fall 2005 Charlotte County Home & Garden Show will
feature many enterprising businesses ready to .
showcase new ideas and services for homeowners.
The show will continue from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
today at The Charlotte County Memorial Auditorium
site in downtown Punta Gorda, on the river. Due to
Charley's damage, look for the auditorium's huge tent
in the parking area.
All show attendees will be eligible for hourly door
prizes, and can take advantage of free admission and
parking. More than 7,000 visitors are expected to
attend this weekend.

In 1994, he moved his family to Port
Charlotte. Soon after his arrival he went
to work for a Florida home builder, as
their project manager overseeing the
construction of more than 100 new
homes, as well as numerous remodeling
projects.
In 2000, Richard formed Blue Dolphin
Builders Inc. working primarily in the
remodeling field. Always known for his
high-quality work, fairness and reliabili-
ty, he believes, "Blue Dolphin has
become a well-respected local compa-
ny." But with the extremely high.
demand for new single-family homes,
Richard has decided to meet that need
with a line of high-quality, affordable
homes.
Paul R. Andrews is vice president.
He joined Blue Dolphin Builders in
January 2004. He has more than 30
years experience in both military and
civilian aviation, and is a licensed
aircraft mechanic, flight engineer and
pilot.
In addition to this he operated
successful part-time businesses in his
native state, Michigan. Formerly a


registered trainee real estate appraiser.
Since January 2004, he has been com-
mitted to Blue Dolphin Builders Inc.

addition to this he also operated a small
home-repair business. In 1999 he
stopped doing home repair and formed
a small real estate investment company,
where he bought, remodeled and sold
single-family homes.
In 2000 he closed his real estate
investment company, sold his home
inspection business and, with his wife,
moved to Florida settling in Port
Charlotte. They formed Sunbury

Helping

mans best

friends

Jon Marcus surrounds
himself with plenty of furry
and feathery creatures to
enrich his life. When he saw
the abandoned animals, vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina, he
decided to help.
At his Jon Marcus Salon in
Venice, .assistants June Pat-
gorski, Sandy Kirkley, Marie
Mago, Susan Haley and Va-
nessa Lopez put their heads
together. They held a special
cut-a-thon, bake sale, raffle
and pet food collection to
benefit Katrina's animals.
Hair cuts were $10 with all
proceeds going to victims. For
each bag of food brought to
the store, the customer re-
ceived a 30 percent discount
on products. The staff baked
brownies, cookies and cakes.
MikeWampler, manager of
the new Lowe's in Venice,
decided Lowe's would match
any money raised by the
salon.
Three cheers for their com-
munity spirit. Jon Marcus Sa-
lon is at 328-A Tamiami Trail.
A family affair
John, Debbie, Morgan and
Lily Kontor know there's no'
business like show business.
They will all be appearing in
the Venice Little Theatre's
"Beauty and the Beast." Their
daughter Tori Kontor who is a
regular at the \-LT is, taking a
break from this show.
It is exciting to think lohn,
who is a physician when not
performing in the theater, will
be, singing in the show. I am
sure his patients can's wait to
see this theatrical side of John.
The Kontors recently held a
red, white and blue party to
celebrate a special event. Deb-
bie Kontor is now officially a
citizen of the United States.
With all the work Debbie does
with scouts and as a substitute
teacher, she's been an unoffi-
cial USA citizen for a long
time.
Congratulations.
Volunteer Central
Venice would be a different
place if it wasn't for the won-
derful volunteers who serve so
faithfully. Judy and Paul Ke-
hoe recently spent hours at
\ enice City Hall helping create
the cute message in a bottle
invitations for the Beach Ren-
ourishment Party. Along with
shark's teeth from the Venice
Chamber of Commerce, the
couple put sand, teeth, sea
shells and little umbrellas in
bottles to complete Pam
Johnson's clever design.
Judy and Ruth Bloom

Bob Vila helps Charley





victims go home again


STORY AND PHOTOS BY KIM COOL. FEATURES EDITOR

L Tla's new series was filmed on location in
nearby Punta Gorda.


A Punta Gorda family's
worst nightmare has turned
into a dream come true.
Destroyed by Hurricane
Charley a year ago, their 40-
year-old house was replaced
with a new hurricane-resis-
tant home. Better yet, its con-
struction was overseen by
TV's top home-building ex-
pert, Bob Vila and FLASH, the
nonprofit Federal Alliance for
SafeHomes.,
"At 4 p.m. Friday; Aug. 13,
Hurricane Charley was.north
of Captiva, with 145-mile-
per-hour windss" FLASH
board member Steven Seibert
said. "Soon it was over Punta
Gorda and Port Charlotte and
homeowner Jim Minardi met
Charley face-to-face. He'
watched as the roof was rip-
ped off and thrown into the
canal."
Tersa Fogolini and Jim
Minardi's 1960-era house was
destroyed. Fogolini was out of
town at the time so Minardi
had to give her the bad news
by phone. The good news was
he had escaped to a neigh-
bor's home and was all right.
"The winds died down
slowly as the eye came over-
head," he said when inter-
viewed a month ago. "I went
outside to look around and
thought the winds would in-
crease as slowly."
Instead, Minardi said the
winds kicked up in seconds
and he was lucky' to be able to
just barely make it to his
neighbor's door and get in-
side before the full fury re-
turned. It was from there that
he watched the destruction of
his house.
A few days later, when
Fogolini had returned, the
couple was outside their
house when FLASH President
and CEO Leslie Chapman
drove up. She asked them if
they would be willing to par-
ticipate in a Tale of Two
Houses, a FLASH program
that would compare their
house with a neighbor's
house that survived because
it had been built to tougher
standards. About the same
time, Vila who has a house in


Boca Grande, contacted the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency. He wanted to
do a series that would address
the construction of safer
homes as well as retrofitting
existing homes to make them
safer.
Friday, Sept. 16, a year and
a month after their night-
mare, Fogolini and Minardi
had spent the first night in
their new home. Shortly after
their first breakfast in the
house they welcomednearly
100 members of the press and
building trades and govern-
ment agencies into their $1
million dream house.
"I think you are right on
the money with that esti-
mate," Vila said as we toured
the house before the dedica-
tion ceremonies, which took
place later that morning.
Location is responsible for
half the valuation. The new
house is located on a canal
with direct no-bridge access
to Charlotte Harbor. The lot
next door is currently on the
market for close to $400,000.
But the rest of the estimated
value is the .house itself,
which has top-of-the-line
stainless steel clad appli-
ances, hard-surface counter-
tops, custom ceramic tile
floors in much of the house
including the entire, family
room, kitchens and baths;
and many other bells and
whistles. It also may well be
the most hurricane-resistant
home in the county.
Built by Mercedes Homes
to a code-plus blueprint pro-
vided by FLASH, the house
features the latest hurricane-
resistant technologies, in-
cluding a superior roof sys-
tem with enhanced metal
connectors, cast-in-place
concrete walls, an elevated
foundation, impact-resistant
windows from PGT in Venice
and an impact-resistant ga-
rage door from a company
called. Hurricane Master.
Poured-in-place concrete
walls have been found to
withstand winds in excess of
250 mph. The tile roof system
used on this house was

attached with two screws per
tile, enhanced metal connec-
tors, thicker decking and the
installation of a secondary
water barrier to keep the roof
on the house and the water
out. Specially designed groov-
ed soffits are designed to pre,
vent the roof from being
blown off by hurricane
strength winds that travel up
the side of a house, putting
huge amounts of pressure on
the roof. Solid wood blocking
behind Alcoa's new Ventura
SOffit System is said to pro-
\ide a 160-mph windload.
PGT's Wingard windows are
said to be able to withstand
"blow after blow by a nine-
pound, 2- by 4-beam travel-
ing at 34 mph, followed by
hurricane-force winds and
the window will still remain in
its frame."
To reduce wind-driven rain
leakage into the house and
reduce the possibility of wind
pressure blowing doors,in, all
doors in the home are out-
ward opening. Inward-open-
ing French doors, which are a
feature of many newer
homes, are much more likely
to be blown in, causing rain
damage and possible roof
failure from pressure building
within rthe house.
The garage door is made of
24-guage steel that will with-
stand the impact of most any-


Homeowner Jim Minardi said he plans to spend a lot of time enjoying the pool in his new home
in Punta Gorda.


thing that could be thrown at
it during a hurricane, Hur-
ricane Master spokesman
Ernie Hutto said.
"While others adapted
their doors, we innovated,"
Hutto said. "It is a whole sys-
tem, including the tracks and
a heavier stronger door. The
door even comes with a trans-
ferable lifetime warranty.
Even the screening on the
lanai is impact resistant.
Vila's 14-week series will go
into detail on the technology
used in the house. Back in
July, Vila was in Venice to film
a seginent at PGT's plant. The
Venice firm provided its new
WinGuard windows and
doors, which are key hurri-
cane-resistant products to be
featured in the house. Chang-
ing windows to those that are
more impact resistant is one
of several ways homeowners
can retrofit existing houses.
Vila will address retrofitting as
well as new construction dur-
ing the series.
WinGuard windows and
doors are constructed of alu-
minum or vinyl frames with
impact-resistant laminated
glass. On impact from debris
or wind, the laminated glass
may crack, but the pieces
adhere to the plastic interlay-
er, keeping the glass intact


within the frame.
Privately owned, PGT In-
dustries is a leading manufac-
turer of custom windows,
doors and sunrooms. PGT
employs more than 2,100 at
its 485,000-square-foot man-
ufacturing, glass plant and
delivery fleet facilities in Ven-
ice, and its 230,000-square-
foot production facility in
Lexington, N.C. One of PGT's
key employees is Dave Olm-
stead, a PGT code expert who
closely follows the company's
product development. Sold
through a network of autho-
rized dealers and distributors,
the company's total line of
custom windows and doors is
now available throughout the
United States, and in a grow-
ing international market,
which includes the Carib-
bean, South America and
Australia. The episode featur-
ing PGT is expected to be
broadcast during the week of
Oct. 3.
Episodes will generally air
Saturday and Sundays on
network affiliates through
December. Local station list-
ing and schedules can be

Jump the gun



on getting shot


S STAFF REPORT
-- In preparation of the 2005
S-* flu season, Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) offi-
-- cials urge Floridians, espe-
cially those 65 years of age
and older, to make an ap-
-- --- pointment with their primary
health care provider to re-
ceive a flu vaccine. Since flu
season can begin as early as
- October, it is best to schedule
an appointment now to en-
sure you are vaccinated later
in the year.
"The best protection
- against flu is to get vaccinat-
ed every year. I strongly
* a- -- s encourage Florida residents
S -- to call their doctors now to
S- schedule a flu shot for Oc-
tober and November," DOH
S. - Secretary John 0. Agwunobi,
S-- M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., said.
"Getting vaccinated not only
helps protect you from get-
t- ting sick with the flu but it
1- N ww also helps protect others."
According to the Centers
- o- for Disease Control and
-- Mw. Prevention (CDC), influenza-
- related deaths average 36,000
S- per year, mostly among the*
elderly. Influenza results in
about 200,000 hospitaliza-


tions per year.
Prioritization of influenza
vaccine has been implement-
ed to ensure that enough vac-
cine is available for those at
the highest risk for complica-
tions from influenza. CDC
recommends that the follow-
ing priority groups receive
trivalent inactivated influen-
za vaccine (TIV) prior to the
end of October whenever
possible:
* persons ages 65 years and
older with chronic medical
conditions
* residents of long-term care
facilities
* persons ages two-64 years
with chronic medical condi-
tions
* children ages six-23 months
* pregnant women
* health care personnel who
provide direct patient care
* household contacts and
out-of-home caregivers of
persons in high risk popula-
tion
The majority of flu vaccine
was administered through
private physicians, clinics,
hospitals, long-term care
facilities, community-based
clinics and other public
venues. DOH estimates that


- -- Diabetes lecture at


it facilitated the distribution
of almost 2.67 million doses
of flu vaccine in Florida over
the 2004-2005 flu season
Since prevention is the key
to reduce the probability of
contracting flu, here are
practical steps to stop the
spread of flu:
* Clean hands often with
soap and water or an alcohol-
based hand cleanser.
* Avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth.
* Stay home when you are
sick and keep sick children
home.
* Avoid close contact with
people who are ill, if possible.
* Do not share eating utensils,
drinking glasses, towels or
other personal items.
* Cover your nose and mouth
with a tissue when you cough
or sneeze.
For information about
how to schedule a flu vac-
cination, contact your private
physician or personal health
care provider.

flu and flu vaccination, visit

NAPLES', FT. MYERS CAPE CORAL *Life Extension Plan


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A 5
Certified Audiologist
Q. I will be traveling to
Europe soon and will be
wearing my hearing aids in
the airport and on
airplanes. Can the metal
detectors damage the
computers in my hearing
aids?
A. It is not necessary to
remove your hearing aids
before walking through the
metal detectors at security
checkpoints. According to the
major hearing aid
manufacturers, digital
hearing aids are not affected
by the x-ray inspection
technology that these devices
use. However, if you are still
concerned or uncomfortable
using the walk through
detectors, then you can
request a physical inspection.
In this case, the security
personnel would use a hand
held wand and a visual
inspection to' clear you
through security. Your
hearing aids cannot be
damaged by the electronics
used by the airplane so there
is no need to remove your
instruments or shut them off
while on board the plane. It is
important to remember to
equalize the, pressure in your
ears upon take-off and
landings by chewing gum or
sipping water. Normally
functioning eardrums should
equalize easily after each
decent (landing). To insure
your eardrum mobility is
normal, you should see your
Audiologist before traveling.
If your test results are
abnormal, your physician can
prescribe medication and
nasal spray, which will
prevent your ears from
becoming "blocked-up". Call
the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing Center
& Balance Center Inc. 492-
4327 for eardrum mobility
testing before your next
flight.

FRESH AIR


The scrub we love


NATURE BRIEFS


How many people have
actually seen a Florida scrub
jay? Why are these birds so
special? Do you know what
makes the scrubby flat-
woods, their natural habitat,
so unique? Well, I'm going
tell you.
The Florida scrub jay,
Aphelocoma coerulescens, is
known as a "cooperative
breeder." A mated pair bonds
for life; the offspring stay with
the parents to help raise the
future fledglings, season after
season, until they can find a
territory of their own. Due to
the limited amount of suit-
able habitat, these wondrous
birds have had to evolve as
survivalist families. They
stay together so they can
continue to exist within the
constraints imposed by the
limited amount of habitat,
growing much smaller even
yet because of development
and man's consumption of
the natural resources.
The Florida scrub jay
demonstrates what I like to
refer to as "True Family
Values." First, they are home
bodies, that is, territorial;
defending what is theirs.
When you venture into their
territory, they will investigate
you. Not the whole family
right/ away, usually you'll
notice a single bird perched
atop a small oak or pine,
watching and observing your
actions. Then with their com-
munication skills, the "sen-
tinel" will notify the remain-,
ing family if the intruder is a
threat or safe to approach.
Soon the entire family may
appear out of the scrub and
actually interact around you.
That's because they recognize
the difference between pred-
ators and their friends. This
communication process is
what makes these birds seem
so intelligent.
They look after each other;
a simple call will alert another
bird to stand watch when it's


the "sentinel's" time to feed,
so he can fly down and feel
safe. Another great display of
family unity is when there is a
predator such as a snake.
The one who sees the
predator makes a unique call
and the birds go into their
"mobbing" routine. United as
a family, they may attack the
predator and actually tear it
apart and eat it. If the preda-
tor is a bird of prey high over-
head, a call goes out and all
the birds dive headfirst into
the tangle of scrub oaks to
hide until the threat has
passed. Then the all-clear
sounds and family business
continues on.
This all happens within the
scrub communities scattered
about the Florida Peninsula.
Relic beaches, sand dunes

and sand bars that were as-
sociated with the different
shorelines of Florida's Geo-
logic Past. These elevated,
well-drained sandy soils are
the deserts of Florida.
In fact, the open bare
sand patches are one of the
characteristics important to
healthy scrub. The scrub jays
will build a nest on the edge
of one of these clearings so
they can watch for predators;
more important, so they can
cache acorns for the winter.
Each bird in a family will bury
more than 8,000 acorns each
fall to provide a food supply
through the winter. They will
dig up arid eat the, acorns
until the insect hatch begins
and spring fruits like blueber-
ries and blackberries ripen. In
this they also plant seeds for
their survival because not all
acorns are eaten, some will
sprout and grow into the oaks
of tomorrow.
In these sand patches,
other life exists. A researcher
at the Archbold Biological
Station once told a story of his
study of the open sand. He
found minute trails etched in


the surface, and on further
examination, he determined
the top layers of sand (quartz
crystals) were acting as a
greenhouse. In this green-
house, a layer of algae was
growing and being "farmed"
by insects that were food for
still other insects. A com-
plete food chain established,
existing under a few grains
of sand. How amazing is
that?
There is another story from
the scrub that you might
find interesting. The scrub
lupine, a plant with fuzzy
green leaves and beautiful
blue flower stalks, attracts a
certain moth. The moth lays
her eggs on the plant leaves
and then she is done. In the
winter, the eggs hatch and the
caterpillars feed on the plant
juices, draining the energy
stored in those leaves. The
caterpillars leave the host and
head out into the world, coin-
cidentally at the same time
the scrub jay's eggs hatch.
Now, there is a high-protein
food supply for the hatch-
lings to eat and grow quickly
so they can abandon their
nest in case of the spring fire
season. Those few caterpillars
that escape the feeding ani-
mals will change once more
into adult moths and fly
around looking for "beautiful
blue flower stalks" to find a
place to lay their eggs. The
cycle has been completed.
The lupine, the moth and
the scrub jay in this example
of a food web display a type of
symbiotic relationship, or
coexistence. Now that sounds
very scientific, but an easy
way to remember this is like
so: In the movie "The Lion
King," what was the young
lion's name? SIMBA (symbiot-
ic), and what was the big hit
song from that same movie?
"The Circle of Life." See, even
Disney understood the scrub.
There are other clues in other
, movies, check out Dumbo!
Where dowe fit into, this
"circle of life"? Will we be-
come a part of the circle or
flatten it? The scrub is well-
drained sandy soil, perfect for
building homes, planting
citrus groves and other forms
of development. In Sarasota
County, more than 90 percent
of the scrub has disappeared
in the last 100 years. The cir-
cle is getting smaller and
smaller. Like the scrub jays,
we should all be communi-
cating the needs of our fam-

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST


Did you ever stop to won-
der why some families seem
to keep in close touch and
others don't? I have two theo-
ries about this. I may be
wrong .... I dunno.
One theory is that you can
feel closer to a next-door
neighbor who you talk to
almost every day than to your
sister or brother to whom you
may speak every couple of
months. It seems to me that
being a relative does not auto-
matically mean that you feel a
tender connection.
My other observation is
that if you talk to a relative
often, you have a lot talk
about. But if you talk, let's say,


only once a month, it is often
small talk. Do you think that
some families stay close
because someone makes an
extra effort to stay in touch
frequently?
In the old days, we had
only the gentle art of writing
letters. A great deal of history
has thankfully been recorded
through that correspon-
dence. Then came the tele-
phone and now it's become
easier to call and talk to any-
one. When one really wants to
talk, even if long distance, he
or she will pick up the phone.
For you lucky folks with cell
phones, long distance can be
free for a flat fee. So letter
writing has become a lost art.
I think that is kind of sad.
OK, OK, I know some of
you just don't like phones, but
when one is alone, phone
calls are usually a welcomed
intrusion.
One reason families don't
stay in close touch is because
of distance we are a nation
of gypsies and move fre-
quently. But I know many of
you can overcome that dis-
tance not only through phone
calls, but because of comput-


ers and e-mail. My friend
Gretchen tells me that if she
gets up to go to the bathroom
at 3 a.m. and realizes she for-
got to say something, she can
send an e-mail at that time
and not bother anyone. Then
she goes back to bed. Me, I
wouldn't be able to sleep after
that!
My friend Milly and her
granddaughter Jill Ann send
e-mails back and forth every

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


In most cases, you can make a
reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you
know what you're looking for, and knowing
what you're looking for can help you
prevent little -problems from growing into
costly and unmanageable ones.
To help homesellers deal with this
issue before their home is listed, a free
report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know
to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been
compiled which explains the issues involved.
To hear a brief recorded message
about how to order your free copy of this
report, call 1-866-214-7091 and enter ID#

day, 7 days a week. Call NOW to learn
how to ensure a home inspection doesn't
cost you the sale of your home.

Can the mythical good times ever roll again?


BY PETER LARSEN
GUEST WRITER

New Orleans was always
one of the premier cities of
the American imagination, a
place where even if you'd
never been, you felt you knew
it was different more magi-
cal and mysterious than
almost anywhere else.
Now, in the weeks after
Hurricane Katrina roared in
from the .sea, New Orleans is,
if not gone, certainly crippled
and forever changed.
Orange County Register
reporter Peter Larsen's first
impressions of the Crescent
City were formed by its music,
literature and film. Later,
thanks to his New Orleans-
born wife, he heard tales of
the 1960s, of streetcars, beig-
nets, grand old homes, the
Audubon Park Zoo.
Register multimedia editor
James Zisk grew up in and
around New Orleans, and left
the city a dozen years ago
with mixed feelings. While he
loved that part of the city that
has made its myth the
music and food and culture
- he also witnessed the un-
derside of its life the high
crime rate, poor schools and
weak economy.
As the grim images of the
storm's aftermath overshad-
ow the bon vivant New Or-
leans we've seen so often, we
asked Larsen and Zisk to have
a conversation about the city,
its myth and reality.
Larsen: What has it been
like to see that a big hurricane
is coming, and then see it
come to shore and everything
that's happened since?
Zisk: There was always the
inevitable in New Orleans.
Growing up in New Orleans, I
remember my first experi-
ence, walking up the levee
near Jackson Square, where
the cathedral is, following
Easter Mass at St. Louis
Cathedral. And walking up
the levee and looking at the
water, and realizing, 'Wait, I
walked up to see the water....'
And then looking down and
seeing how low the city actu-
ally was.
I was about 10 when that
hit me. ... Seeing the path
coming, (I was) just thinking
about friends and family and


informing them to escape.
Larsen: When you look
back now you seem a little re-
served about it. Why?
Zisk: Well, I felt I grew up
with a lot of challenges. Not
that everyone else there did-
n't. In the back of my mind I
felt I always wanted to suc-
ceed so I could get out.
Larsen: What prompted
that?
Zisk: Mainly, in the end,
the final thing was, 'Would I
feel comfortable raising a
family there?' And having
gone through college and
then taking my job with the
(New Orleans newspaper)
Times-Picayune ... at that
point we were murder capital
of the world, five years run-
ning. A lot of crime, mostly
black-bn-black crime ... even
the areas I was living.
People were being killed for
no more apparent reasons
than not giving money to the
robber, or not giving it fast
enough, or over a pair of shoes.
Larsen: When you moved
back after college you were a
single guy. What would you
do during your off time?
Ziskl We'd all get off rough-
ly 10 p.m. at night. We had our
favorite hangout, a little dive
bar that we liked, Robert's Bar.
You could get 50-cent drafts,
quarter pool tables. We'd hit
local haunts that were great
for music. The Maple Leaf
was one. Tipitina's. Muddy
Waters.
Larsen: You described bars
and nightlife and music.
That's probably the image or
the idea of New Orleans that a
lot of people have.
Zisk: A lot of people think
of New Orleans, they think
when they go there, it's like
Vegas 'What happens here
stays here.' People go there -
and this is kind of a detriment
to the city as well 'I'm just
going to party hard.' No real
respect for the city. Urinating
in the streets. They get a cup,
they trash it on the street.
They have a good time and
leave.
Larsen: What were the lo-
cals like?
Zisk: There are a lot of
good people, very communi-
ty oriented people there, who
would easily help you. Such a
service-oriented city, people

Before Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, these homes, although in the swamp within Tamany Parish, near Slidell, La., just out-
side New Orleans, were above water. Dotted with fishing shacks, the area, like all of New Orleans, has been forever changed by
the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.


are very open and kind.
But on the other side, you
have a group who feels that
they're owed something from
society. ... And then always
seeking respect from others
without giving respect.
Larsen: Everyone's got dif-
ferent ideas of what's going to
happen to New Orleans. What
do you think lies ahead?
Zisk: A lot of hardship.


Having gone through Ca-
mille and how long it took
them to rebuild after that -
and this storm was even
worse it's going to be
tough.
I've been back as late as
two years ago and the same
potholes are there that were
there when I lived there 12
years ago, just a little bigger.
And if they're having that


much issue just getting pot-
holes filled, how are they
going to reconstruct major
highways, roads, where these,
same potholes are? I don't
know if they can rebound.
Larsen: What's it been like,
emotionally, to have been
drawn back into thinking
about the past and this area?
Zisk: Mostly I have a lot of
disconnect with the city itself.


Travel Q&A: Day-tripping in Tunisia, government to implement new passport rules


Q. I'll be visiting Tunisia. Can
you suggest some day trips and
overnight trips from Tunis? -
M.W., Palo Alto, Calif.
A. Day trips are easy to
book once you reach Tunis,
Tunisia's capital. Overnight
trips, because they usually
involve hotel arrangements,
are better made ahead of
time.
The Tunisia Tourism
Office says that most upscale
hotels in Tunis, such as
Abounawas and The
Residence, offer half- and
full-day excursions to such
locales as the ancient Roman
city of Dougga or south into
the Sahara and nearby oases
(a short flight is involved) to
see film locations for "Star
Wars" and "The English
Patient." Local travel agents
can book these and similar
trips after your arrival.
For overnight tours, visit
tunisiaguide.com for a list of
travel agents in the United
States that can help with
arrangements. One sugges-
tion: If you're adventurous,
consider a trip into the
Sahara, where visitors sleep
in tents and dine outdoors
near an open fire.

Q. ,My husband and I are
looking for economical trans-
portation from Heathrow Air-
port in London to the Dover
cruise terminal. Also, will we be
OK with two large pieces of lug-
gage? S.G., San Jose, Calif.
A. You can reach Dover by
bus or train, but we'd recom-
mend National Express
Coach, a bus service that has


several daily departures from
the central bus station at
Heathrow Airport.
It takes longer by bus, but
we like it for the conve-
nience. You can depart as
early as 5:45 a.m. (and arrive
at Pencester Road bus station
in Dover town center at 9:25),
and although there's a weight
limit of 44 pounds per bag,
you don't have to carry your
luggage on board. A round-
trip ticket costs 33.60
pounds, about $63. E-tickets
can be purchased online,
nationalexpress.com.
Going by train is more
expensive (about $100
round-trip) and more com-
plicated, requiring a connec-
tion via Underground sub-
way in central London. Plus
you have to carry your bags
onboard yourself.
But you'll get there in
under three hours. If you
decide to go this route, take
the Picadilly Line from
Heathrow to Hammersmith,
then connect on the District
Line to Victoria. There, you
can catch trains to Dover,
which leave every half-hour.
You can purchase tickets
online at britrail.com, or
(866)'274-8246.
In both instances, your
ride will terminate in Dover's
town center, less than a mile
from the cruise terminals. A
shuttle bus will deliver you to
the terminals.
Q. My travel agent says we'll
need passports for our Carib-
bean cruise next year. I thought
the new rule was on hold.
What's the latest?


A. The federal government
said Thursday it will go ahead
with plans to require all trav-
elers arriving from Canada,
Mexico and other nations to
show a passport to enter the
United States.
The Bush administration
proposes to tighten border
security by requiring pass-
ports for U.S. citizens return-
ing from Mexico, Canada, the
Caribbean, Panama or
Bermuda.
If you're visiting the
Caribbean, it's likely you
won't need a passport to re-
enter the United States until
Dec. 31, 2006, according to
Frank Moss, deputy assistant
secretary for consular affairs.
Under the current plan,
which is to be phased in over
three years beginning Jan. 1,
U.S. travelers to Mexico and
Canada will need passports
by Dec. 31, 2006, if they
return by ship or plane, and
by Dec. 31, 2007, regardless
of how they return. Changes
in the rules for visitors to the
Caribbean would match
those guidelines.
The same rules regarding
passports would apply to citi-
zens of those countries enter-
ing the United States.
Anyone who frequently
crosses the border into
Mexico or Canada might be
able to avoid the $97 fee for a
new passport. The
Department of Homeland
Security and State
Department are expected to
propose a low-priced identi-
fication card for U.S. citizens,
although the price has not


been determined.

Q. I want to transport my cats
to Michigan but I don't want to
put them in cargo on a commer-
cial flight. What can I do?
A. Your best alternative is
to use an experienced pet
transport company, which
can ship your pets anywhere
in the United States in air-
conditioned vans and pro-
vide door-to-door service.
We found two, Pro-
fessional Pet Transports (pro-
pet-transports.com) and
Waggin' Wheels (pupcentral
.com/wagginwheels).
They typically send two or
more drivers per trip, so vans
are continually moving
toward their destination, and

pets are never left alone. ,
Stops are made every four to
six hours so dogs can take
short walks, and Waggin'
Wheels allows owners to con-
tact drivers by cell phone to
check on their pets.
If you use Pro Pet, expect
to pay about $90 per cat, plus
the price of a carrier ($15)
and a cat pad ($19.95) for
each.
Waggin' Wheels will cost
about $505 for two cats
(transporting in one crate).

the potential loss of things:

"I just wanted to do some

"When I hear those songs, I
remember how I grew up, and

the music affected the people
around me, and what those
times were like."
The music from "those

that was important; it was the

over 'At Last," on which Cyndi
sings songs that she's-loved
for her entire life. But they
aren't simply cover versions:
"I didn't go into it to just sing
above a track, I went into it to
rip apart, the song and find a
new soul and tell a real story."
While the pop charts have
always welcomed, and still
do, the same old songs with
the same arrangements sung
by new voices, Cyndi wasn't
looking for the easy hit with
'At Last." In her hands, the art
of interpretation is more than
just having a great voice; ,it's
also about having a new
vision for a familiar song.
"When you reinterpret a
song, you have to find how
that song speaks to you, and
what it is you're trying to say
in that song. Who's singing,


who is the songwriter, what
are they trying to say, what
just happened to them? And
go from there. And for me, the
whole magic of the music,
whether you write it or not, is
always in that little space, that
becomes so real, or surreal,
it's otherworldly. And when
that space becomes so other-
worldly, that there is no break
between the outside and the
inside, that's the place you
want to be and that's the
place that's magical and mys-
tical."
Tickets for Tuesday, Nov.
29, at 8 p.m., are available at
the Van Wezel box office at
777 North Tamiami Trail,
through the Charge-It Line at
953-3368 or by calling (800)

thin at the moment, but she's eating her two meals a day and
putting on a little weight. The dog walkers say that Amelia is
really a sweetheart. If you like rottweilers, Amelia would like to
be the pet that you choose to take home and love. She is very

Learning by doing: Charlotte High School senior Cameron Parson, checks the level of the scaffolding he and Charlotte Technical Center con-
struction students erected during class on Friday.


Technical Center U
trains workers in
hands-on program
By GARY BERNARDO
CHARLOTTE TECHNICAL CENTER
On Aug. 14, the Sun ran a story in "The
Job IMarket" section under the headline
"Industry in need of workers." The Asso-
ciation for Career and Technical Educa-
tion provided the article. In a nutshell,
the information substantiated data sup-
porting the urgent need for a skilled
work force for the construction industry. -
The combination of current growth '
rates in construction and the retiring
baby boomer population has created
this huge demand. One of the sources
quoted in the article was the National
Center for Construction Education and
Research president, Don Whyte, who
said, "It is absolutely imperative that we Class in c
address the skills shortage by reaching rett demo
out to today's youth." off the grc
.At Charlotte Technical Center, Job$tart
students and staff in the construction
programs of carpentry and drafting are
embracingWhyte's words and his organi-
zation.
CTC began a successful history of
training workers for the home-building
industry 25 years ago. On-campus pro-
jects and the program's annual "learning
house" provided invaluable hands-on
experience for students. Once the home
was sold, funds were generated for future Ve
projects as well as providing scholarships.

* SKILLS

From page 1
Today, program instructors
George Kachmar and Joe
Jones work with more than 50
students on similar goal as
partners with Habitat for
Humanity. Drafting instruc-
tors Bruce Fourman and
Chuck Cantieny utilize state-
of-the-art CADD software
preparing students in
mechanical, structural and
residential drafting.
The result is the same,
hands-on experience for stu-
dents interested in the con-
struction industry. These stu-
dents are all highly skilled and
job-ready upon completion of
the program. Many students
become employable before


high school graduation.
This year, a new component
has been added. CTC has
acquired the Contren Learn-
ing Series written by the
NCCER for the carpentry pro-
gram that provides fundamen-
tal training and certification to
-meet current industry stan-
dards. This training program
provides both traditional and
technical skills and makes
each student employable for a
local or national, market.
Within the curriculum, stu-
dents complete training in
safety, mathematics for con-
struction, power-tool certifi-
cation, blueprint reading,
basic rigging and employabili-
ty skills. It is not unusual to see
a student dangling from an
exterior support beam to
experience the correct use of a

safety harness or travel to a
work site to observe a con-
struction industry operation
firsthand.
Not only are CTC students
being trained for the industry's
diverse work force, but they
are also being tested against
national standards. Students
are certified by NCCER after
demonstrating competency of
each standard..
Charlotte County public
schools are embracing the
Rigor and Relevance initiative
proposed by Bill Gates and Dr.
Willard Daggett's International
Center for Educational
Research. The heart of the ini-
tiative is. to provide students
with learning environments
that are relevant to student suc-
cess and to give them a rigorous
curriculum that is challenging.


Construction education
through CTC's ,Job$tart dual
enrollment program places
high school students into rele-"
vant situations. Rigor in the
construction programs is
being intensified through
classroom training and mate-
rials produced by NCCER. The
benefactors will not only be
the students, but also the
employers who interview and
hire the end product CTC
students who are highly com-
petitive, marketable and
knowledgeable construction
workers.
Gary Bernardo is the coordi-
nator of dual enrollment pro-
grams at the Charlotte Tech-
nical Center, 18300 Toledo
Blade Blvd., Port Charlotte.
The Tech Center's phone num-
ber is (941) 255-7500.
