Draft EAR to be unveiled Tuesday


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


SCOPE project



brings new hope


Venice's road map for rewriting
and updating the city's compre-
hensive plan is in and ready for
review.
City planners will present the
Evaluation and Appraisal Report
to the planning commission at
1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Staff and com-
missioners will hold a workshop
and discuss the draft document
before taking a vote at the Oct. 18
meeting.
An EAR is what's used to
update any government's com-
prehensive plan, the major docu-
ment that shapes and determines
future developments, govern-
ment services and a community's
overall personality. -
"In away, we've calledAAA and
gotten a triptik," Venice Planning
and Zoning Director Tom Slaugh-
ter said. "Only, it's more than just
a road map. It's where you want to
go and why."
Much debate has revolved
around the topic of where the city
wants to go and why. Many com-
munity members argue in favor
of business redevelopment that
could include taller buildings,
while others are pushing for
height restrictions and shutting
the door on new developments.
The two sides of the debate
seem to agree that Venice's
"quaint" charm is one of the city's
strongest selling points.
Now planning commission
and city council must hammer
out what the word "quaint" really
means, and if those development
qualities belong all over town or
just in certain areas.
"Ask three people to break,
down and define 'quaintness,'
and I'll bet you'll get three differ-
ent answers," Slaughter said. "Are
you talking about (historic)
downtown? Does that belong
down by the south bridge or
somewhere like Knights Trail?"
Clearly unclear
This also will spill over into the
height and density debate, where
Slaughter says public surveys did

to ment;


The options for people in Sarasota County needing mental
health services are somewhat limited. The good news is, the
problem has not gone unnoticed, and solutions are in the
works.


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF THE CIT' OF VENICE,
The planning commission will discuss the Evaluation and Appraisal
Report that will be the outline for updating Venice's comprehensive
plan.


not show one clear policy direc-
tion.
Some people want a blanket
height and density cap across the
city, others want caps in certain
areas and still others only want to
allow tall buildings and dense
developments for specific uses..
A classic example of this could,
be the city's public housing com-
plex on North Grove Street. Its
board members are working to win
money for a major redevelopment
project that could nearly triple the
number of low-income and afford-
able housing units in the area.
However, the Venice Housing
Authority will have to deal with
height and density restrictions on
its 6.6 acres of land: Should the
city's comp plan be changed to cre-
ate an exception to its maximum
density of 18 units per acre in order
to promote affordable housing?
This is just one of the issues that
muddies the waters of height and
density.
"As (the EAR) relates to heights
and density, it's clear there's not
just one overwhelming direction to
g6," Slaughter said.
Printed copies of the EAR are
available for public inspection at


the Venice Public Library and at
Venice City Hall. Copies saved to a
computer disc can be purchased
for $5.
Public comments on the find-
ings are encouraged. City council
will vote on the EAR on Oct. 25, The
document is due to state officials
by Dec. 1.
Chapter by chapter
Here are some of the highlights
from the draft EAR:
Regional partnerships -
Develop. additional interlocal
agreements with neighboring gov-
ernments in order to deal with
growth. As 6f May, more than
12,000 new living units have been
approved by Sarasota County com-

Long-anticipated improvements
at the intersection of U.S. 41, Black-
bum Point and Old Venice Roads -
known to Osprey residents as "Killer
Korner" have been delayed yet
again.
,'Permits to modify traffic signals
and to restripe left-turn lanes into
the highway' were issued to Sarasota
County by the Florida Department
of Transportation. FDOT is responsi-
ble for the highway, but the county is
doing the work.
But a further delay of four
months has been predicted by
Florida Light & Power. It needs to
relocate utility lines, which, in their
current location, will obstruct the
signals.
Agendas of' the Osprey Re-
vitalization Committee going back
to 2001 note the community's deter-
mination to modify the intersection
because of the great number of traf-
fic accidents that have occurred.
Twenty months ago, county
transportation planning engineers
appeared- before the committee,
They reported that the county had
applied to FDOT for the permits
necessary to improve the intersec-


tion.They also reported plans to add.
sidewalks on Old Venice Road.
Their promise that day was that
"construction will begin as soon as
the permits are issued."
Ayear later, on Feb. 25 of this year,
planning office representatives
showed the committee drawings of'
the proposed improvements. They
predicted that construction would
start this past August, and be com-
pleted by the anticipated opening of
the Wal-N art SuperCenter, about a
mile north of the intersection. The
store is scheduled to open by Oct.
26.
Itis expectedto increase traffic on
U.S. 41 by an estimated 5,000 to
10,000 vehicles a day.
Electronic protest
Last June, transportation plan-
ners in the county Public Works
Department had to report another
delay. FDOT said no one forwarded
the request for permits to it, while
county representatives said the con-
fusion was at FDOT's end.
In April, just 16 :hours after an
angry confrontation between impa-
tient residents and the county traffic

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a
series on the state of mental health care in
Sarasota County.
BY JOHN MCCAFFERTY
SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN

Mental Illness Awareness Week is
Qct. 2-8. Sponsored by the National
Alliance on Mental Illness, the na-
tional observance was created by
presidential proclamation in 1990 to
focus attention on the high inci-
dence of mental illness in America.
Founded in 1979 as the National
Alliance for the Mentally 111, NAMF-
(nami.org) is a nonprofit, grassroots,
self-help, support and advocacy
organization of consumers, families
and friends of people with severe
mental illnesses, such as schizo-
phrenia, bipolar disorder, major
depressive disorder and other men-
tal illnesses.
To learn more, I contacted Bob
CarolIa, NA1 I's director of commu-
nications, in Arlington, Va.
He said an estimated 20 million
adults and 6 million children and
teenagers in the United States have
serious mental illness.
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina,
Carolla said, NAMI quickly put a
"Hurricane Katrina Resource Guide"
on its Web site for its state organiza-
tions, local affiliates, consumers and
family members affected by the
tragedy. It's being updated regularly.
"We focus on research, educa-
tion, support and advocacyy" Carolla
explained. "Major accomplishments
include our family-to-family and
peer-to-peer education programs;
support groups: fighting for better
scientific research priorities by the
National Institute of Mental Health;
fighting stigma and discrimination;
reserving access to medication; and
improving housing and employ-


ment opportunities to support.re-
covery."
On July 27, NAMI was one of 16
national organizations that pro-
posed 28 actions steps for Congress
and the Bush .administration to
transform our nation's ailing mental
health care system. They came to-
gether after the president's New
Freedom Commission on Mental
Health called for .a "fundamental
transformation of the nation's ap-
proach to mental health care."
Bad numbers
What's happened since the com-
mission released its final report on
July 22, 2003?
Since then, according to Michael
Faenza, president and CEO of the
National Mental Health Association
(nmha.org), "63,000 Americans have
died by suicide; more than 200,000
Americans with mental illnesses
have been incarcerated; more than
25,000 families have given up cus-
tody of their children in order to get
mental health services; juvenile
detention centers have spent $200
million 'warehousing' youth in juve-
nile justice facilities instead of pro-
viding treatment; and the American
economy has lost more than $150
billion in productivity due to unad-
dressed mental health needs."

NAMI MEETINGS
In Venice, NAMI meets the first
Wednesday of each month at Venice
Health Park at 7 p.m.
In North Port, meetings are on the
third Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. at
North Port Health & Family Services
Center, 7950 Pan American Drive;
contact Mary Buckley, 426-2857.
In Sarasota, a support group meets
on the second and fourh Tuesday at
Mental Health Community Center,
240-B S. Tuttle Ave. An educational
meeting is held on the third Tuesday
at 7:30 p.m. at the Bayside
Community Room, 1625 South

Pavilion renovation



targeted for early 2006


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Restoration of the historic
Nokomis Pavilion, formally
named the Nokomis Beach
Plaza, is tentatively scheduled
to start in early 2006.
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation General Manager
John McCarthy said the pro-
ject is a little behind schedule,
but nothing serious.
"Our plans are 99 percent
complete. The only big issue
left is the coastal construction
permit, and we don't expect
a big challenge there," Mc-
Carthy said. "We like to get
these environmental permits
before we start the job so we
don't have to go back and
rebid."
McCarthy said the con-
struction permitting process
delayed things.
He said once the coastal
construction permit is ob-
tained from the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency, there
will be roughly a six-week
bidding period, a few days to
look at the bids and a couple
of weeks to negotiate with


the contractors.
The board of county com-
missioners then must ap-
prove the bid.
McCarthy said he is com-
fortable with the projected
$600,000 cost of the renova-
tion. But, if after the ink on
the winning bid dries there
are unscheduled' costs, the
county has "Plan B."
"One of the things we try
to do when we plan a five-
year Capital Improvement
Program and find ourselves
with rising costs," he said, "is
to get appropriate grants to
augment county funds and
perhaps take a close look at
other projects, see where we
might shift some money
around."
McCarthy said that has
been a successful strategy for
the county in the past.
A $305,000 state grant
from the Florida Historic
Preservation Office covering
about one-half of the total
project cost was recently ap-
proved by the county com-
missioners.
There also is a $185,000
grant from the Florida Rec-


creation Development Assis-
tance Program.
The balance of the funding
will come from the county's
1-cent sales tax, said county
commissioner Jon Thaxton.
A condition of the grant
agreement was a covenant
binding the county to main-
tain the restored condition of
the pavilion for 10 years.
Just like old,
Thaxton said earlier the
pavilion's original design and
color scheme will be pre-
served. There will be a com-
munity room and an outdoor
plaza.
Plans call for the restrooms
to be modernized while
maintaining their original
character.
The pavilion is the first
building famous Sarasota
architect Jack West designed
after going out on his own as
a young architect, giving it
even more historical signifi-
cance. It also was the first
public beach pavilion built by
the county.
West pioneered a unique
architectural theme designed

to bring the outdoors in and
to blend with the flat, Florida
landscape.
West's unique style of
architecture led to the publi-
cation of a book, "The
Sarasota School of Architec-
ture," depicting innovative
designs of Sarasota homes
anti businesses that were rec-
ognized worldwide from


1941-66.
Bad fall
In the 1970s, the. county
modified the structure and
opened a new restroom on
the south end of the structure.
Beachgoers expressed a
concern about the deteriora-
tion of the original building
and a subsequent inspection


revealed the need for a major
restoration.
The county got serious
about rehabilitating the
dilapidated 51-year-old land-
mark when a piece of the roof
fell on a woman's head in
April 2002.

Red tide killing beach business but good for vultures


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


The perpetual red tide in
the Gulf of Mexico is not only
killing fish and other wildlife,
it's killing tourism business.
"It's been bad news, and
the bad part is it's been re-
lentless. But this is reality,"
said Jim McCarthy of Mc-
Carthy's Inns on the Beach on
Manasota Key.
"Every phone call I get,
whether booking a night. or
for die season, every single
phone call \\ants to know if
there's red tide. We've had a
lot of cancellations. A lot of
people are reluctant to give
deposits," McCarthy said.


Other inn, motel and hotel
owners on Englewood Beach
are suffering.
Ita DeSouza, owner of
Island House on the Beach,
also said people were calling
in advance and asking about
the red tide.
"They call a couple of days
in advance to confirm. When
I have to tell them the truth,
then they cancel," DeSouza
said.
"We're just getting cancel-
lations every day. We haven't
had a guest for the last two
weeks. It's really bad for the
business," he said.
DeSouza said this year
was the worst he has seen in
more than a decade owning


HORMONES CAN AFFECT THE MOUTH
SA concerned teen-ager talked to her mother about her most recent
upset. It seems that every time she had her period, her gums started to
bleed. Is this normal? Her mother made an appointment to have their
Sdentist review things. He was able to reassure her about the health of
her gums. He explained the things that can happen in the mouth due to
chemical and hormonal changes.
Their dentist told them that there is occasionally swelling and pain in
the gums. particularly the margins: That sometimes minor lesions on
the lips or gums will appear. There may even be some swelling in the
various salivary glands, and the possibility of prolonged bleeding if
dental surgery is done during this period.
He explained that these things are normal and should cause no reason
for alarm. They my occur frequently, seldom, or never, but are simply a
7 response to the wonderful and complex things that are happening in
the body.

Fishermen, bathers and
shell collectors are staying
away.
"Canadian and English, the
ones that fish and shell,
they're not coming because
we've had outbreaks of red
tide," said Brett Stone, the
owner of Beach Croft Motel,
which is situated next to
Charlotte County's Englewood
Beach. "I have to call the
county. I'm sure they're won-
dering why their bed tax is
so low."
Cassie Bellamy, manager
of the Sea Oats Beach Club,
said because that establish-
ment has only offered time-
share accommodations the


last 23 years, the red tide out-
break hadn't affected the
club financially. But, she
added, she has noticed that
owners are not taking-advan-
tage of their investment.
When people do show up,
Bellamy said, they complain
of coughing, sniffling and
"ugly dead fish."
The dead fish aren't always
present, but the affects of red
tide and its intensity come
and go with the wind.
"This past weekend, we did
have the red tide, dead fish on
the beach smelling and peo-
ple coughing," Bellamy said.

"I'm trying to think of a
good side," McCarthy said
this week, and then paused.
"It's good for the vultures."
According to the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration Web site on
Thursday, the forecast for the
weekend had the red tide
bloom continuing to stretch
from Pinellas County to
Collier County. Very low to
moderate patches are expect-
ed in southern Sarasota and


Charlotte counties through-
out the weekend.

Improving the community's



health through change


Tackling Sarasota


County's drug problem


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER

Leanna Kaiser Carlson, a
national consultant, health-
care futurist and co-founder
of the Kaiser Institute, spoke
at the Community Health
Improvement Foundation's
The Future of Healthcare
luncheon on Thursday after-
noon.
According to Carlson,
change in health is on the
horizon.
"Can we think about the
future in a way that will en-
able us to improve it?" Carl-
son asked the luncheon
group. "Do we want the direc-
tion were headed? And if not,
can we do anything to shift it?"
According to Carlson,
change can be brought forth
by the smallest of sources.
'A new vision can start in
group of people, in a single
organization," Carlson said.
"There are alternative futures
that are always accessible."
But before a change for the
better can happen, we must
face our core problems.
"We have system issues
and almost all the same issues
arise in every community
system," Carlson said. "How
will we solve our problems?
Until we make things not
about or own interest, I think
we'll come up short no
generosity, no miracle."
Physical, mental and social
CHIP is one organization
that is. working to eliminate
these system problems.
"The mission of CHIP is to
improve the physical, mental
and social health of our com.
munity," said Leslie Clarke,
CHIP project director. "It's a
big mission. CHIP is about us
working together."

Leanna Kaiser Carlson speaks at Thursday's CHIP luncheon
about changing the quality of health in the community.


To understand the mission
of CHIP, you have to open
your mind about what health
is.
"It's not just about the un-
insured, or about disease ....
It's about creating different
relationships," Carlson ex-
plained. "We have to see
what no one else does."
CHIP collects and analyzes
data pertaining to the com-
munity's health and then
puts the findings to use by
creating projects and activi-
ties designed to improve
overall health.
A CHIP off the old block
Several subcommittees
have branched off from CHIP
These Community Health
Action Teams meet monthly
to study a specific category of
the community's health. In-
cluded in these CHATs are a
Youth Issues Committee, a
Senior Issues Committee, a
Laurel/Osprey/Nokomis
Health Clinic Committee and.
several others.
"The CHATs have been


very successful and very ef-
fective," Clarke said.
At this time CHIP. caters
mainly to the "LOVN" area,
which includes Laurel, Osprey,
Venice and Nokomis. It has
recently spread into North
Port and Englewood, and
according to Clark, CHIP is
expected to expand to all
areas in Sarasota County.
Many local businesses
have joined CHIP in their
efforts.
"We couldn't do. any of
this without our funding
partners," Clark said.

The Sarasbta Coalition on
Substance Abuse's new execu-
tive director plans to buckle
down on the county's drug
problem.
Curtis Lavarello, who took
on the position in June, is
already implementing new
programs and pushing for-
ward with old ones.
Lavarello has a background
in law enforcement and
school safety, and has made
youth issues a major goal.
"One of our focuses will
always be the youth. I'm a big
advocate of them," Lavarello
said. "We are very, very aware
that we have a major problem
with drugs and alcohol in our
youth."
According to Lavarello, a
new drug is circulating around
the county and landing in the
hands of its teenagers.
"Myakka Gold," Lavarello
said. "It's a strong form of
marijuana. It's very addict-
ing, and kids know where to
get it."
Lavarello believes that the
answer to the youth drug
problem lies in the minds of
the youth. SCOSA is planning
to hold a countywide youth
summit to hear directly from
them. They are, after all, the
ones who know what the
problem is.
SCOSA is also looking to
add a teenager to its board of
directors to include a differ-
ent perspective in the organ-
ization.
A new group of users
Another issue Lavarello
plans to tackle is elderly drug
abuse.
"We're not talking about a
senior walking down the
beach smoking a joint," La-
varello joked. "It's prescription


drugs."
With 31 percent of Sarasota
County's population being
seniors, Lavarello believes
that they need just as much
attention as youth.
SCOSA has started a medi-
cine bag program for the
elderly. SCOSA provides bags
for seniors to carry their med-
icine to their doctor's office.
According to Lavarello, a
large number of seniors don't
realize what medications
they are taking and when a
doctor asks them, they simply
reply "I don't know, a bunch
of different ones." By bringing
the medication with them to
the doctor's office, they can
more accurately be diagnosed
with certain illnesses and
their doctors can prescribe
more safely, with an eye on
drug interactions and over-
medication.
SCOSA is also working to
educate the elderly on drug
abuse.
A new group of drug users
is starting to become an issue
as well.
"Part of a growing popula-
tion of drug users are the
baby boomers," Lavarello
said. "These are 60s children.
I joked earlier about walking
down the beach holding a
joint; but that is becoming
more of a concern with this
group."
Drug free at work
' SCOSA works with local
businesses to implement the
drug-free workplace pro-
gram.
"The drug-free workplace is
a big part of what we do,"
Lavarello said. "We help (busi-
nesses) create the policies.
Random drug testing (in the
workplace) is a part of it."
Lavarello recently applied
for a new grant with the Blue
Foundation to train local wait


staff to recognize when cos-
tumers are too impaired to
drive.
The plan is to teach restau-
rant workers how to persuade
an intoxicated costumer not
to get behind the wheel with-
out angering the customer.
This program will be called
Alcohol Impairment Measure.
The community cost
"I'm gaining a better un-
derstanding of the cost of
drug abuse," Lavarello said.
In an article 'that he wrote
entitled, "Economic Cost of
Substance Abuse in the Mil-
lions," he explored the cost of
the county's drug issues.
The article states: "In 200,
the coalition sanctioned a
study that revealed some
staggering numbers, in
terms of what those eco-
nomic costs were in Sarasota
County. The study concluded
that the total economic cost
to Sarasota was in excess of
$216,950,000. That can be
broken down as follows: Sub-
stance abuse related crime
cost, $121,750,000; Health
care costs due to substance
abuse, $56,800,000; Lost pro-
ductivity losses due to sub-
stance abuse, $38,400,000"
It goes on to say "The 2005
budget to run Sarasota County
was just over $850 million, so
approximately one fourth of
the entire budget to run a
county of this size is spent
on substance abuse related
issues."
Lavarello believes that this
cost is much too high and that
if the community knew how
much was spent on this issue,
it may help to get more people
involved in the fight against
the drug problem.

New building codes in effect Oct. 1


Gonefish


Expect a lengthy learning curve from local
governments as officials work to decipher and
interpret Florida's new building code.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Condominium and apart-
ment developers have been
dreading Oct. 1 finally rolling
around.
On Friday, developers only
had to install a fire sprinkler
system if their multi-family
building was three or more
stories tall.
On Saturday, the expensive
fire prevention system must
be included when there are
three or more living units
under one roof.
Yesterday was the start of
Florida's new set of building
codes. Adopted at the state
level, these codes are based
on International Code Con-
ference suggestions and have
thrown out all of the previous
wordings and definitions
from Florida's previous set of


building codes.
The changes are so drastic,
Venice Building Department
Director Hans Behrens said
he's still analyzing the docu-
ment to decide whether the
new codes are tougher, more
lax or simply written differ-
ently.
"I have a feeling that pro-
fessionals such as architects
and engineers, as well as
building departments, will
have a steep learning curve,"
Behrens said. "Even though
we are professionals, it's total-
ly different from what we had
before."
Playing the percentages
The change in fire sprinkler
requirements was the most
drastic code change Venice
building official Darryl Hill
could think of.
Other major changes come


in classifications. The old
state building code was found
all in one book, with sections
to address different types of
uses.
The new code is broken up
into five books, including one
for residential buildings and
another for existing structures.
Another major change is
the 50 percent rule.
Previous building codes
required an entire building be
brought up to current codes if
work valued at more than 50
percent of a building's price
was done.
That section is gone, and a
formula that architects will
have to compute has taken its
place. In-the-field experience
is needed before Hill can tell
if the formula will come out to
50 percent of a home's value.
As of now, only new work
must meet the new codes.
"The 50 percent rule is out,"
Hill said. "It's not even there."

A worker with Berlin Sign Co. removes the fish from Mad Sam's Grille & Bar in Englewood
on Thursday morning. The fish, which appeared to be diving through the restaurant
roof, consists of a 19-foot-long tail and a head of about 12 feet. After a stop at Berlin, so
workers can build a stand for the fish and link the two sections together, the sign is
destined for the campus of Manatee Community College in South Venice. Alder Partners
LLC of Sarasota is going to build a 35-unit condominium on the restaurant property.


First phase of rails-to-trails project to open December 2005


STAFF REPORT

The first phase in the trans-
formation of the 12.4-mile,
former CSX railroad corridor
into the centerpiece of the
county's trail system is under
way and expected to be com-
pleted by the end of the year.
Under this initial phase of
work, an approximately 12-
foot-wide section of the 100-
foot-wide corridor that con-
nects Sarasota to Venice is
now being cleared, mowed
and weeded in preparation for
removal of the railroad tracks
and placement of a shell sur-
face by the end of December.
That means the first rough-
surface walking trail along the
county-owned corridor will


be open in 2005.
"A trail along this corridor
has been a longtime goal of
the community," said Public
Works Interim Executive
Director Jim Harriott, who
has spearheaded county
staff's efforts to acquire the
corridor and build a trail
along it. "Sarasota County
citizens decided to purchase
the railroad corridor for a
trail by using the infrastruc-
ture surtax (1-cent sales tax).
Now that we own the land,
staff's goal is to return the
asset back to the citizens as
soon as possible."
"While this first phase will
produce a rough-surface trail,
primarily designed for walk-
ers, the real construction work


will come in the second phase,
when the asphalt trail is de-
signed and built, and all the
trail heads are in place," he
added. "We expect that the
multiuse trail will be com-
pleted by the end of 2006."
Past and future
In December 2004, the
county paid $11.75 million to
purchase the corridor, which
stretches from just more than
a mile south of State Road 72
(Clark Road) by Sawyer Loop
Road to the southern termi-
nus near Center Road in
Venice.
The scenic corridor con-
nects several county and state
parks, including Oscar Scherer
State Park; spans two main


waterways, Dona Bay and
Roberts Bay; and links to other
amenities such as the Venice
Train Depot.
Frederick Derr & Co. Inc. of
Sarasota currently is doing
the first phase of work under
a continuing services contract
with the county.
Once the weeding and
mowing are completed, the
construction company will
remove the tracks and replace
them with a 2-inch layer of
shell on an approximately
12-foot-wide strip. The con-
tractor will have salvage
rights for most of the tracks,
but the county will be allowed
to retain a portion for histori-
cal purposes.
There are also eight bridge


trestles, ranging in length
from about 25 to 75 feet. The
two largest, over Dona Bay
and Roberts Bay, will not be
repaired or replaced until the


second phase, but a tempo-
rary decking will be put over
the six smaller trestles during
phase one for users of the
primitive trail.

$159,000 grant to expand VHS medical sciences


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Under a new joint grant
between Venice Regional
Medical Center, Manatee
Community College and Ven-
ice High School, the hospital
will provide additional job-
shadowing opportunities for
Venice High seniors begin-
ning in the fall of 2006.
A $159,000 Succeed Flor-
ida! grant will be used to
expand Venice High's Life
Sciences Academy, said Can-
dace Millington, VHS princi-
pal.
School officials will spend
the next year developing a
curriculum leading to job-


opportunities in nursing ,or
as a licensed physician's as-
sistant. Other funds will be
used to develop an extensive
laboratory, establish scientific
community outreach pro-
grams and expand profes-
sional shadowing.
The accelerated program
will offer dual enrollment so
high school students can
receive college credit for
course work and internships.
Brenda Randazzese, direc-
tor of the medical sciences
within VHS' Life Sciences
Academy, will manage the
grant and work with grant
partners.
Occasionally high school
students secure internships


at the hospital through VHS
Leadership Academies. The
sight of young people in the
emergency or operating room,
however, is expected to be
more commonplace once the
grant program is up and
running.
"We've had an organiza-
tional meeting," said Joanie
Jeannette, chief nursing offi-
cer at VRMC. "We'll meet to
work out the details and de-
termine how many job-
shadowing opportunities can
be made available next fall."
Model partnership
"We're one of the few high
schools to receive this grant,"
Millington said. ."Because we


already have small learning
academies in place, we had
a good foundation for this
grant.
"Both MCC and VRMC are
excited about partnering. It's
because of the partnership
and their support that we were
able to acquire this grant," she
said.
Millington said the acade-
my plans to reach even fur-
ther down into the schools to
identify students who may
be interested in following a
job in medical science. They
intend to identify 50 youths
- 25 at middle school level
and 25 at ninth grade level -
based on their interest and
aptitude to give the program


a foundation to move for-
ward.
"We're moving an advisory
model down into the middle
school to allow us to do a
better job of letting students
know what we can provide at
'the high school level. Some-
times students get confused
with all the careers and
school academies. Hopefully
we can show them what is
good for our community,"
Millington said.
"It will definitely benefit
our community. We look for-
ward to making more of these
partnerships. We hope it will
serve as a model for other
academies and for those who
"wish to expand into other


shortage areas," she said.
The Succeed Florida! grant
program, created by the 2005
Florida Legislature, awarded
$21 million in grants to public
and private secondary and
post-secondary institutions
to support new or expanding
programs in nursing educa-
tion and teacher certification,
and to plan and implement
career academies.
Funds awarded for this
grant may be used for instruc-
tional equipment, laboratory
equipment, supplies, person-
nel, student services or other
expenses associated, or to ex-
pand enrollment in existing
programs or expand into new
areas of specialization.


Citizens invited to school forums


STAFF REPORT


Everyone interested in the
future of education is invited
to attend "Dialogue to De-
cide," a community engage-
ment forum with the School
Board of Sarasota County.
The forums will be held Oct.
10, 11, 24 and 25 at four loca-
tions throughout the county.
Citizens will participate in
open and candid discussions
with school board members
after Superintendent Dr. Gary
Norris offers a short presen-
tation on NeXt Generation
Learning, a vision for Sarasota
County schools.
"We hope people in the
community will share their
thoughts about NeXt Gener-
ation Learning," said Dr. Kathy
Kleinlein, chair of the school
board and host of the forums.
"Citizens will be able to talk
freely about issues such as
spending priorities, education-


al goals, the upcoming referen-
dum, parent concerns and
many other issues."
The school board is facing
difficult decisions on budget,
the continuation of the refer-
endum, salaries, facilities,
training needs and safety
issues. Kleinlein said that
"Dialogue to Decide" is struc-
tured to provide an opportu-
nity for board members, to
hear from citizens before
making final decisions.
Roundtable discussions will
be divided among the five
"pillars" that follow the NeXt
Generation Learning plan.
They are:
1. Quality: How are the
schools doing and what are
the priorities? These issues
include special programs,
curriculum, lowering the
achievement gap and the
dropout rate, testing and
making the connection be-
tween learning and the world


of work.
2. People: The public
school system is the county's
largest employer. These is-sues
include recruiting and retain-
ing quality teachers and staff,
professional development and
salaries and benefits.
3. Service: The school sys-
tem is a service organization.
How can the district provide
better service and treat stu-
dents, parents and taxpayers as
customers? Everyone should
be treated with respect, just as
one would expect with a first-
class business.
4. Resources: Running a
growing school district is big
business, with salaries, facili-
ties and technology needs
increasing every year. How
can the district save money
and spend money wisely and
efficiently with community
oversight? Voters will soon be
asked to renew the property
tax referendum. Resources


also include community
partners, volunteers and
businesses to help teach "real
world" experiences.
5. Safety: Our ever-chang-
ing world now requires an
even greater emphasis on
school safety. From intruders
to bullies, staff, students and
parents must recognize dan-
ger and know how to deal
with it. HoW can we improve
school safety?
A volunteer from the school
district will record comments
at each roundtable and re-
port back to the school board
and superintendent.
"We are asking our genera-
tion to help the next genera-
tion of learners," said Klein-
lein. "We hope parents,
grandparents, taxpayers, re-
tirees, teachers and business
partners will come out and
support the future of educa-
tion. The only way to do this is
to become involved."

SCOPE from page 1 A
hospital in Southwest Florida,
to save money. "Many mental
health professionals railed at
the idea. They said it would
not work. ... Just about every
dire warning that was made
has come true," the Venice
Gondolier Sun said in an edi-
torial, "Mental hospital badly
needed in our area.")
To focus attention on the
problems of the mentally ill,
NAMI's Sarasota and Manatee
county chapters plan a joint
walk on Oct. 8 to raise funds
during Mental Illness Aware-
ness Week. It begins at 9 a.m.
at the G.T. Bray Park in Bra-
denton.
Thanks to a $10,000 grant
from the Selby Foundation,
NAMI also will have a fund-
raising variety show, "The
Divine Mind," on Dec. 12 atThe
Players Theatre in Sarasota.
Events such as these help
educate the public about
mental illness and the need
for more dialogue and fund-
ing for research and treat-
ment.
So does the video, "Good
Days, Bad Days," produced by
local NAMI members Mary
and Bob Magill for the SCOPE
project. This unusual pro-
gram stars 50 brave mentally
ill people interviewing one
another to explain what it's
like to live with mental illness.
Here are three examples:
A young man, diagnosed
with suicidal depression, tells
how he goes in and out of
reality and has mood swings.
"I'm scared of what I might
do," he explains. "I go from
happy to sad to angry to
bored. It hurts sometimes."
A 70-year-old woman re-
veals, "Even your family
thinks it's something you can
control." People tell her,
"Snap out of it."
Then there's the young
man who wants others to un-
derstand: "We're not bad peo-
ple. We're just people trying to
get well."


project began, many volun-
teers and organizations in
Sarasota County were busy
trying to help the mentally ill.
SCOPE's recommendations
support many of the efforts
that were already under way.
The Community Alliance,
for example, had already con-
vened a task force to evaluate
acute care services. Various
other task forces had been
working to improve mental
health services for infants,
children and within the crim-
inal justice system.
In South Sarasota County
alone, mental health service
providers mentioned by
SCOPE included: Coastal Be-
havioral Healthcare, Senior
Friendship Center, Family
Counseling Center, Jewish
Family and Children's Service,
Venice Community Mental
Health Center, Englewood
Mental Health Center, Mental
Health Community Centers,
North Port Counseling and
Wellness Center, Lutheran
Services, and Catholic
Charities.
The SCOPE report also
mentions the Community
Health Improvement Project,
a community-based initiative
to improve the health of Sara-
sota and Charlotte County
residents.
Still, the SCOPE report
said, "Mental health services
in South Sarasota County are
inadequate to meet the needs
of the growing population."
Uncoordinated
The real problem has been
inadequate coordination
throughout the county
among a wide range of men-
tal health service providers.
That resulted in "inefficient
allocation of limited re-
sources, both dollars and ser-


vices," SCOPE said, adding:
"When people with mental
illness do not receive the ser-
vices they need, this negative-
ly impacts both individuals
requiring such services and
the community."
In other words, mental ill-
ness doesn't just affect the
people who suffer from the
diseases. It also can affect
their families and friends,
their employers and neigh-
bors.
To help families especially,
NAMI holds regular meetings
and conducts 12-week-long
family-to-family programs, so
its members can share their
concerns, needs and success
stories. Outside speakers
often are invited to the meet-
ings.
Family Resource Specialist
Barry Jeffrey feels he has
"many insights" into the
problem and not just because
he's NAMI's only employee in
this area.
"I've learned a lot the past
10 years in this job and in pre-
vious jobs in the mental
health field. I also have epi-
lepsy, am affected by depres-
sion and have a brother with
mental illness," he said. ,,
No wonder Jeffrey's moth-
er, Mary, rarely misses a local
NAMI event, especially the
monthly meetings in Venice.
"My mother joined NAMI
around 1986," Jeffrey said. 'At
her first meeting she was sur-
prised to run into some of her
Venice neighbors. Until then,
she had no idea any of them
had mental illness in their
families."
.Jeffrey contributed to the
SCOPEstudy and is very en-
couraged by it.
"It's near and dear to me
because it provides us with
the information we need.

Losing the stigma
Another NAMI member
who is passionate about help-
ing the mentally ill is Sally
Graham of Sarasota. She, too,
has mental illness in her fam-
ily and was a member of the
SCOPE study group and co-
chair of its implementation
task force.
When she volunteered for
the SCOPE project, Graham
brought extensive experience
in the criminal justice system
dating back to 1977, when she
was the first woman to run a
jail in Manatee County.
She became interested in
mental illness then and
learned more as a depart-
ment of corrections consul-
tant to all the jails in Florida,
and as a member of the
American Jail Association
Board of Directors.. In 1999,
she became criminal justice
policy coordinator for Sara-
sota County.
Before retiring in. 2002,
Graham helped the county
establish a Mental Health
Court. She also. has been a
major player in the creation
of the county's Crisis Inter-
vention Training program for
police and others. Both the
Mental Health Court and CIT
are important initiatives to
help the mentally ill.
Like many NAMI mem-
bers, Graham would like to
see parity in insurance.
"There's still a difference in
the help you get for a physical
illness and a mental illness,"
she said. "The insurance
companies haven't caught up
with us yet, but parity of

Nokomis' Beach Park Boat Ramp
Bridge to close for replacement
The Boat Ramp Bridge leading to the Nokomis Beach Park
boat ramp will close to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic for
three months beginning Monday, Oct. 3, while a new bridge is .
constructed.
The approximately 50-year-old, short-span bridge is
deteriorating, and is at the end of its design life. The new bridge
is designed to provide safe and reliable access to the park ahd
boat ramp for the next 75 years.
Cone & Graham Inc. of Tampa was awarded the $916,733.06
contract to replace the Nokomis bridge that is commonly useo:
by fishermen and boaters. The project includes the
replacement of seawalls under the bridge,installation of a new
5-foot-wide sidewalk on the south side of the bridge, and
aesthetic improvements. Funding is from the infrastructure
surtax (penny sales tax).

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 7A


SUNDAY. OCT. 2, 2005


SCOPE frompage 6A
insurance for both types of ill-
ness is one of our biggest
goals.
"Once it happens,"
Graham said, "I think the stig-
ma attached to mental illness
will disappear just like it did
for cancer years ago."
"The SCOPE project was
wonderful for us," Graham
said. "It brought together all
these people from different
organizations to share their
ideas with one another."
She was surprised at how
many people came to the
meetings in Sarasota week
after week and continued
working for months.
"They gave a big piece of
their time," she said.
Education is key
Two of the major mental
health providers in Sarasota
are Coastal Behavior Health-
care Inc. (coastalbh.org), and
the Bayside Center for Be-
havioral Health at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital (smh.com).
Both participated in the
SCOPE project.
Coastal's president and
CEO, Dr. Christine Cauffield,
is responsible for the overall
administration and fiscal
management of a $21 million
dollar budget for 58 programs
in 23 locations. She had to
cancel our scheduled inter-
view but did reply to my ques-
tions via e-mail.
"For the Venice and North
Port area," Cauffield explain-
ed, "Coastal provides outpa-
tient individual and group
services, outpatient medical
services and case manage-
ment."
(Coastal's Venice office is at
7810 South Tamiami Trail,
492-4300; in North Port, 548-
0125.)
Asked about SCOPE and
NAMI, Cauffield, said, "Both
organizations have done so
much to increase community
awareness regarding the prev-
alence of mental illness, and
have helped dispel myths and
reduce the stigma that unfor-
tunately still exists.
"Education is vital," Cauf-
field said, "and NAMI's Break-
ing the Silence program for
school-age children is an
innovative and successful ve-
hicle to enlighten our future
generation."
On its Web site Coastal says
it provides "an integrated sys-
tem of care in mental health,
substance abuse, prevention
and intervention and crimi-
nal justice services for our
most vulnerable citizens.
Each year we serve more than
10,000 children, adolescents,
adults, seniors and families in
23 locations throughout six
counties on the Gulf Coast of
Florida. We provide services
for people where they are
needed: in schools, in homes,
in groups, in hospitals and
even in jails."
Unique capacity
I also e-mailed questions
to Sarasota Memorial's Bay-
side Center. Miriam Lacher,
referral development coordi-
nator, replied that Bayside
provides "a comprehensive
continuum of care in mental
health treatment for children,
adolescents, adults and se-
nior adults. Services include
inpatient, partial hospitaliza-
tion (day treatment), group
therapy, intensive outpatient
treatment and individual
therapy."
Lacher said the center "is
also able to assist the dually-
diagnosed, those individuals
with both a psychiatric and
substance abuse concern.
Assessments and. referrals
through Bayside's Clinical
Assessment Center are avail-
able free of charge to the
entire community.
"Because Bayside is part of
Sarasota Memorial Hospital,"
Lacher explained, "we have
the unique capacity to pro-
vide medical care to those
who seek our services. We
work closely with the hospi-
tal's Emergency Care Center


to facilitate the movement of


patients who would benefit
from our care."
Lacher said Bayside has
assisted with training and
education of law enforce-
ment related to the mentally
ill and substance abusers,
adding, "We are participating
in a workshop directed at the
education of attorneys and
judges related to this popula-
tion...."
She also said Bayside pro-
vides space for NAMI and
recovery support groups,
works with mental health
drop-in centers and partici-
pates on a number of boards,
consortium and community
outreach.
Mental illness doesn't care
Tammy Zappa, president
of NAMI's Sarasota County
affiliate, works with Coastal


and Bayside.
To her, the SCOPE project

"was wonderful because it
brought everybody with dif-
ferent ideas from different
organizations to the table."
Zappa sees the effects of
mental illness at home, at
NAMI meetings and in her
regular job as projects with
industry coordinator for
Children's Haven and Adult
Community Services, Inc. in
Sarasota.
One of her three sons,
Joseph, 22, has bipolar illness.
She said two younger sons,
Dustin, 18, and Michael, 16,
"are OK so far."
She said, "mental illness
doesn't care what you look
like, or how old you are, or
how wealthy you are. It
attacks everybody.".
Zappa is concerned that


Florida recently changed the
list of psychiatric drugs paid
for by the state's Medicaid
program and that the state
has cut its Medicaid, drug
budget.
"We're having funds but
left and right," she said.
"Mental illness is falling to the
bottom of the totem pole. It's
a huge problem."
But just as quickly Zappa
said, "We should never lose
hope. That's one of the things
that NAMI does. We continue
to hope that one day individ-
uals with mental illness will
not have to suffer the illness
or the shame and stigma that
goes with it."
In Sarasota County, thanks
to NAMI, SCOPE and all those
who contributed to its study
and implementation, there's
good reason for hope.

Indians blow lead, game to Manatee


Venice falls to 1-1 in district

after second half collapse.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The pattern is getting
downright frustrating for
Venice High football coach
Nick Coleman and his staff.
The Indians look strong for
a half only to see it all cave in
over the final two quarters of
play.
The avalanche happened
again Friday night in Braden-
ton, as Venice blew an early
lead and ended up falling to
Manatee, 28-14.
Considering it was a Class
5A District 11 contest, the
loss dealt the Indians a blow.
Manatee is now 2-0 in district
while Venice fell to 1-1.
The Indians scored the first
14 points and looked in con-
trol in the early going. The
Indians totally controlled the
first quarter. Manatee only
ran three offensive plays. One
was a fumble recovered by
Venice. /
Venice took the opening
kickoff and drove 78 yards on
14 plays. Kiki Merzius scored
from 17 yards out and Ben


Shipps added the extra point
to make it 7-0.
On Manatee's second play
from scrimmage, quarter-
back Ryan Rubino fumbled a
pitch and Ray Popp pounced
on the loose ball at the
Hurricane 24. Tony Charles
scored on a fourth and goal
from the 4-yard line. ,
The lead didn't last long.
Manatee cut it to 14-7 on a
32-yard TD pass from Rubino
to Edgar Theliar. It appeared
to be an innocent sideline
pass play, but the cornerback
missed the tackle, allowing
. Theliar to race down the
right sideline.
A gamble on the second
half kickoff backfired, putting
Manatee even with the Indi-
ans in a flash.
Venice normally pooch
kicks, but this time, the
Indians decided to try to drive
the ball into the end zone
against a stiff breeze. Bobby
Spann took the kick at the 15
and danced 85 yards for the
tying touchdown.
"We were giving them the
ball at the 37," Coleman said.

VHS' Defensive End Roy Popp recovers a fumble in first quarter action against Mantee High
School. Manatee went on to defeat Venice 28-14.


"Even into the wind, we
thought we could line drive
it into the end zone. We've
been practicing it. It was a
big play, when they ran the
kickoff back."
Venice got the ball back
and moved into Hurricane
territory, but an interception
put an end to that uprising.
Up to that point, Venice
quarterback Matt Wickwire
had completed five of his
first seven passes for 54


yards. He was 2-for-12 for just
eight yards the rest of the way.
The Indians hit starting
Hurricane back Chris McNear
hard, knocking him out of the
game in the third quarter.
Manatee coach Joe Kinnan
replaced McNear with Spann,
who hurt the Indians with his
shifty running.
Spann scored the go-
ahead TD from 14 yards out
late in the third quarter. Dan
Watson tallied the final


Manatee TD in the fourth
quarter on an 11-yard bull
run. It was the first play after
Venice turned the ball over
with a fumble deep in its own

Indians can still make playoffs


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Sometimes, football just
isn't fair.
It seems the Venice High
Indians have worked too hard
to be saddled with a record
of 1-5.
Venice has led at halftime
in three of the games. The
Indians have not been a sec-
ond-half team, as they have
been outscored by a whop-
ping 121-28 over the final
two quarters in their six
games to date.
Plus-minus on turnovers
is another sore spot. Venice
is minus 9 much too high


a figure if you're going to
win games.
The pass defense has been
shaky all season. The Indians
got burned again against
Manatee as a missed tackle
resulted in a touchdown.
Through it all, Venice can
still attain one of its main
goals this season make the
playoffs.
The Indians are 1-1 in
Class 5A District 11. They
have two remaining district
games Oct. 14 at home
against Port Charlotte and
Oct. 21 at Lakewood Ranch.
If Venice can win those two
games, it will be 3-1 and in the
running for one of the two


available spots.
In essence, Venice could be
3-7 and still be in the regional
playoffs.
If the Indians can cut down
on the turnovers and shore
up other areas of their game,
they could take someone by
surprise.
NEXT WEEK'S OPPO-
NENT Sarasota is rolling
along with a record of 5-1
following a 48-19 victory
over Durant. The Sailors
bounced back from a loss to
Manatee the previous week.

Ranch slaps Port


in defensive struggle


BY GARY BROWN
STAFF WRITER


The rain that started to fall
in the final quarter of the Port
Charlotte game with visiting,
Bradenton-Lakewood Ranch
Friday night fitted the mood
of the Pirate players and fans
at the end.


Port Charlotte lost its
homecoming contest and
Class 5A-District 11 opener
10-7 to the Mustangs. The
Pirates couldn't overcome
their offensive mistakes and
fell to 4-2 overall and 0-1 in
district action. Lakewood

Girls runners capture Charlotte Invitational


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High girls cross
country team captured its
second team title of the sea-
son Saturday, coming home
first in the Charlotte Invita-
tional held at the Charlotte'
Sports Park.
The Lady Indians had the
top three individual finish-
ers and had six runners fin-
ish in the top 15. That gave
them 26 team points, which
easily outdistanced second-
place Lemon Bay. Five
schools competed on the 3.1
mile course at the place for-
merly known as Ranger
Stadium.
Stephanie Korszen was
first, Chelsea Rose second


and Genna Jones third for
coach Brenda Clark's squad.
Erin McCullough was ninth.
Kim Pinkerton was 12th and
Felicia Taylor was 14th.
Venice ran without one of
its top performers "Long
Island" Alex Natiss.
The Lady Indians also won
the team title in the season-
opening Venice Invitational
Sept. 10.
Venice has run in four
meets this season.
In boys 'action, host Char-
lotte won the team honors
while North Port had the in-
dividual glory.
The Tarpons won the
boys championship with 44
points, beating out Lemon
Bay, which was second with


52, North Port, which was
third with 56, and Venice,
which was fourth with
91.
North Port's James Grant-
ham came home the indiv-
idual winner with. a 17
minute, 16-second clocking,
beating out Venice's Kyle
Brunette, who recorded a
17:31 for second place.
"My goal is to run in the
16:30s this season," Grant-
ham, a junior, said. "I led
after about 80 yards into the
race and kept it up from
there. The course had a lot
of straightaways."
, It was Grantham's second
first-place finish this season.
He won the season-opening
Venice Invitational three


weeks ago.
Charlotte used its depth to
win the team boys champi-
onship. The Tarpons had six
runners in the top 15, with
sophomore Colton Smith
leading the way with an 18:25
clocking for sixth place Ryan
Manche in eighth place, Jon
Branch in ninth, Paul Sche-
lum in ll1th place, John
Eckhoff in 12th place and
Derek Kneebone in 15th
place rounded out the top six
runners for the Tarpons.

Ranch is 1-0 in district play
and 1-4 overall.
"Our deferise just played
great," Port Charlotte coach
Ray Hixson said as he walked
off the field. "But our offense
just didn't put enough points
on the scoreboard. It was sim-
ple as that.
"We hadn't practiced that
much against their passing
game, but I can't fault our
defense. They only allowed 10
points. You can't ask for much
more than that."
Both teams rolled up 200
yards of total offense. How-
ever, the Pirates fell behind
10-0 in the second quarter
and could never get into
gear on offense, getting inter-
cepted three times.


Port Charlotte cut the
Mustang advantage to 10-7
with 47.2 seconds left in the
third quarter when junior
quarterback Kevin McLafferty
bulled over from the 2-yard
line for the touchdown.
Anthony Cetrangelo kicked
the extra point.
The touchdown was set up
by a 31-yard pass from
McLafferty to junior wide
receiver Jared Jefferies, which
put the ball on the Lakewood
Ranch 2. McLafferty scored


on the next play.
Port Charlotte had several
chances to go ahead in the
last quarter, but had two
passes intercepted and could
not amount a consistent
offense as the rain started to
fall and prey hinted both teams
from moving the ball well.
Pirate rum ing back Jason
Wood, who was named
homecoming king, ran for 78
yards on 16 carries but was
contained fairly well by the
Mustang defense.

number of steps to protect
themselves against mosqui-
toes.
The state monitors ani-
mals as sentinels for arbo-
viruses, including Eastern
Equine Encephalitis, West
Nile and St. Louis Enceph-
alitis Virus, to determine if
any of those three viruses are
present in the community.
The Florida departments
of Health and Agriculture and
Consumer Services, along
with other state and local

Nokomis bridge
closing for replacement
The Boat Ramp Bridge
leading to the Nokomis Beach
Park boat ramp will close for
three months beginning
Monday, Oct. 3, while a new
bridge is constructed.
The approximately 50-
year-old, short-span bridge is
deteriorating, and is at the
end of its design life. The new
bridge is designed to provide
safe and reliable access to the
park and boat ramp for the
next 75 years.
Cone & Graham Inc. of
Tampa, which is replacing
eight similar short-span
bridges on Siesta Key, was
awarded the $916,733.06 con-
tract to replace the bridge,
which is commonly used by
fishermen and boaters.
The capital-improvement
project includes the replace-
ment of seawalls under the
bridge, the installation of a
new 5-foot-wide sidewalk on
the south side of the bridge,
and improvements in the aes-
thetics of the bridge. Funding
is from the infrastructure sur-
tax (1-cent sales tax)
The new bridge will be sev-
eral feet longer, around 28
feet, and slightly wider to
accommodate a sidewalk.
The existing vertical naviga-
tional clearance for boats will
remain the same.
During -the around-the-
clock closure, the bridge will
be closed to all vehicular and
pedestrian traffic. Marine
traffic also may be affected at
times, with temporary clo-
sures of the canal adjacent to
and underneath the bridge.
The contract calls for sub-
stantial completion of the
bridge by Jan. 1.
Signs notifying users about
the closure will be posted on
the roads leading to the
bridge.
During the closure, boaters
will have at least three boat
ramp alternatives in the area:
to the north at Blackburn

October is 'Energy
Awareness Month'
The Sarasota County
Board of Commissioners has
proclaimed October 2005 as
Energy Awareness Month in
Sarasota County. The procla-
mation was issued at the
board's meeting Wednesday
at the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center, 4000.
South Tamiami Trail, Venice.
As part of the county's par-
ticipation in National Energy
Awareness Month and the
national ENERGY STAR
Change a Light, Change the
World campaign, the Ander-
son Center was also the site
today of Sarasota County
Government's first distribu-
tion of free compact fluores-
cent light bulbs.
An estimated 500 citizens
received the free 15-watt
long-lasting bulbs, which
provide the same amount of
light as standard 60-watt
incandescent bulbs. People
who picked up the free CFL
bulbs signed a "Change a
Light" pledge to use them to
reduce energy consumption
in their homes and offices.
In the proclamation, the
commission recapped Sara-
sota County Government's
commitment to encouraging
high-performance green
building design and con-
struction for the public and
private sector, -through such
county facilities as the North
Sarasota Public Library and


the Twin Lakes Park Green
Office Complex. Both facili-
ties received LEED
(Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design) Gold
certification this year from
the U.S. Green Building
Council.
The board also noted the
county's relationship with the
U.S. Department of Energy
as a Rebuild America Com-
munity Partner since 1998,
and its partnership with the
U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency as an ENERGY
STAR partner since 1994.
Additional free CFL light
bulb distribution (one bulb
per household, while supplies
last) will take place on Oct. 8
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the
North Sarasota Public Library,
2801 Newtown Blvd., Sara-
sota, and from 1 to 4 p.m. at
the Florida House Learning
Center, 4600 South Beneva
Road, Sarasota.
For more information and
directions to these facilities,
contact the Sarasota County
Call Center at (941) 861-5000
and ask about the Change a
Light, Change the World free
CFL light bulb distribution.

OUR VIEW



Can we blame hurricane strength on global




warming? Is global warming the culprit?


Nature for the second time has over-
come the levees that were supposed to
protect New Orleans, and rivers of
mud buried streets and neighborhoods.
Not even the dead were spared one of
the city's above-ground tombs was seen sail-
ing in the torrent, listing but with a vase of
flowers still firmly on top, as if to preserve a
trace of dignity amid the ruin. Other Gulf
Coast cities were seriously hit.
The arrival of Hurricane Katrina, followed
so closely by Rita, has a lot of people asking
whether this is a fluke or a sign that hurri-
cane seasons will only get. more chaotic.
Some environmentalists have linked the
recent spike in the frequency and ferocity of
hurricanes to global warming.
The environmentalists' argument goes
like this: Warm ocean water is a hurricane's


vital fuel. Global warming, caused chiefly by
the burning of fossil fuels,, has increased the
ocean temperature, and that has led to
fiercer and more numerous hurricanes.
Indeed, there have been so many hurri-
canes this year we're about out of names -
after Stan, Tammy, Vince andWilma, it's on to
the letters of the Greek alphabet. The ferocity
of Katrina arid Rita feeds theories that weath-
er patterns have gone ominously awry.
Well, not so fast. There is no definitive sci-
entific proof of the link between global
warming and the hurricanes of recent years.
The hypothesis got something of a boost
from a study by Massachusetts Institute of
Technology atmospheric scientist Kerry
Emanuel that was published recently in the
magazine Nature. Emanuel noted that the
power unleashed by tropical storms in the


North Atlantic and North Pacific has in-
creased sharply over the last three decades.
But viewed over the long term, is that pat-
tem so unusual, and, if so, does it have any-
thing to do with global warming? Among cli-
matologists, the answer to such crucial ques-
tions is a resounding: "We don't know for sure."
Max Mayfield, director of the National Hur-
ricane Center, told a panel in Congress that the
recent rash of hurricanes was but another
wave in the cycle of hurricane activity. He said
,the current cycle parallels one that began in
the 1940s and ended 20 years later.
Mayfield pooh-poohed suggestions that
'global warming is behind the rash of violent
storms this year.
A paper published last month in a leading
journal of meteorology concluded that "no
connection has been established between


greenhouse gas emissions and the observed
behavior of hurricanes." Emanuel's study is
mentioned as 'suggestive" but "by no means
definitive."
Not exactly a smoking gun, is it?
The potential link between global warm-
ing and hurricanes certainly deserves more
study. Meanwhile there's plenty of on-the-
ground work for environmentalists and oth-
ers to do.
For instance, they should press to restrict
residential construction along hurricane-
prone coastal areas. They should promote
the restoration of coastal wetlands and bafri-
er islands that can soften the blow when
other killer hurricanes strike, as they
inevitably will.
-Chicago Tribune


Behind the news


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


The Venice Police Depart-
ment has been in the news a
lot recently, not all for the best
of reasons. It has got a lot of
press, some for the labor
negotiations that have been
ongoing with the city.
I, for one, have been very
critical of the bargaining the
officers have done and in
general disappointed with
their greed.
Also, longtime chief Jim
Hanks announced his retire-
ment next year. The depart-.
ment lost its accreditation
and has had a couple of stud-
ies done on problems facing
it. Morale at times has been
reported to be low.
What hasn't been reported
is all the good workVPD does
to make this a safe communi-
ty one of the reasons we
like living here.
The records this year show
that arrests are up, although
still low. For instance, in the
first six months there were
105 felony arrests, up about
20 percent over the year
before, and misdemeanor
arrests were up 74 percent, for
a total of 391. Traffic citations
for the same period were
2,439, up more than 600 from
the year before. In all there
were more than 10,800 calls in
the first six months.
I was amazed at the num-
ber of things the department
does, a lot of which never
make the news.
The police department is
required to keep statistics on
everything. In August, for
instance, there were 1,891
calls for service: 709 were traf-
fic stops, 129 suspicious inci-
dents and 40 concerned traf-
fic accidents or cars causing
property damage.
,There were 60 requests for
special details, which might
include :help at a football
game, parade or big event.
There were a lot of calls about
marine problems, from dis-
abled boats to navigational
hazards to people being cited
for violating boat registration
or no-wake zones.
Ninety-three people called
looking for information.
There were calls about ani-
mals getting hit, illegal dump-
ing and loitering.,
There are some serious
crimes, but not too many. In
August there were three drug
arrests, 18 burglaries of prop-
erty or autos, four fraud


charges even one rape.
VPD assisted many other
agencies in investigations.
Officers get called out on dis-
turbances quite a bit, more
than 70 such calls just in
August. They also get a lot of
calls (129 in August) on suspi-
cious people or vehicles.
On top of all of these kind
of statistics, they now keep
track of the dollars lost from
things stolen. For example, in
August more than $30,000
was stolen. Of that, more than
$2,600 was cash or securities,
$12,000 in goods from vehi-
cles, another $12,000 from
motorcycles, and $4,000 in
office equipment. They keep
it down to number and dol-
lars concerning bicycles.
It is amazing how many
statistics they keep.
In all, our agency has had a
very good reputation and has
done good work. You should
feel that you are pretty safe
and well looked after.
OK, so it would also be
good if they got the contract
solved and became accredit-
ed again. Above all though, I
like having a professional
agency providing good safety

By's Crack: My dad was
in town for our company
board meeting this week.
He said, "I went to my doc-
tor a few weeks ago and he
told me to avoid stress. So
when his bill came in, I
didn't open it."


When Sue and I were in
Tennessee, she visited down-
town Franklin, which is a nice
town about 30 miles south of
Nashville.
She saw a couple of inter-
esting shops. One was a hair
salon just for kids. It had
chairs'like fire engines and a
horse. An adjoining room
could handle birthday par-
ties, where girls could come,
have a party and get their hair
and nails done. Cute idea.
It also had an old movie
theater that had seats with
tables in front of them so peo-
ple could see a movie and
have pizza, hot dogs and pop-
corn. It had free kids movies
on Tuesday. Sounded like a
nice throwback to the past.
One of the things in Frank-
lin that I wish we had, at least
in season, is a historic walk, or
maybe a tour of the town. We
have a rich history people
love to hear about. I think a'
retired school teacher or his-
torian, or anyone, could make
a little money doing this.
We loved Bell Buckle,
which is a town of a few hun-
dred that is probably best
known for its annual Moon
Pie and RC Cola Festival. The
11th annual is coming up.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! ARE SCHOOL CHILDREN LESS DISCIPLINED THAN
IN YEARS PAST? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Teachers leave because of problem students


Not about money. I don't think teachers are leaving the pro-
fession because of pay. Teachers don't go into education
because of high pay. I think they are leaving because there are
four or five students in every classroom which are behavior
problems. Their parents are unsupportive, they don't send
their kids to school ready. Principals are unwilling or unable to
enforce the student code of conduct, which all students should
be forced to obey. And I think if there was some more order in
the classroom, you would have more teachers staying on for
more than four or five years. It's not a money situation. It's fam-
ily values and behavior and students who are year after year
causing problems and nothing is done about it. That's the
problem.


Wrong. On Mr. Black, our
manager: I've been living in
Venice for 27 years, and I don't
know what he's talking about
when he said 10-15 years ago,
there wasn't a reason to come
back to Venice. Well, I think
he's crazy. I have always found
Venice Avenue very, very
interesting with many shops.
There were many people
there. So I don't know, he
must have come on a bad day
or something.
Pick it up. This call is in
response to yard debris. There
are many, many people that
leave yard debris piled up on
the corner of their driveway,
one of them being one of your
editors.
It's been there a few
months, and another a neigh-
bor left for the winter and just
left the pile there without call-
ing public works to have it
picked up. And these piles
need to be picked up so that it
does not blow onto other
people's yards who takes care
of their yard all year-round.
So if you would please pub-
lish the number for public


works for the city of Venice:
486-2422. But please, neigh-
bors, pick up your yard debris
before a storm hits and it ends
up all over the place. And it isl
also an eyesore.

sible for the paper to be print-
ing a comment that is so sim-
plistic that the Arab world is
going after the Western world
because the United States
gives money to Israel. It's
highly complex, more than
the United States giving Israel

them back at our expense is a
lie. And, more important, I
think that it gives the conno-
tation that the reason we
don't have homeland security
is because we support Israel. I
think that's also irresponsible.
Quote: "This does not include
loan guarantees, of which not
one dime is ever paid back by
the state of Israel." This is a
blatant lie. Anyone who could
research that on the Internet
would find that is not true. I
think it's irresponsible to per-
petuate that lie. And it's very
simplistic in assuming that in
the world we live in, all the
troubles would go away if the
U.S. would not support Israel.
No pipes. I am president of
a condominium on the beach
and I'm taking exception to
an article you've got in the
Let'em Have It column writ-
ten by a condominium hater
talking about every condo-
minium having huge pipes
going out into the ocean car-
rying nitrogen phosphate. I
don't know of one single con-
dominium, that's got a pipe
running out to the Gulf of
Mexico.
The city of Venice still has
storm drainage pipes going
out to the gulf, but they're not
coming from condomini-
ums.
I hope that in the future,
you will not allow these false-
hoods to be printed in the
paper, even though you let
them say whatever they want.
You're leaving the impression
with everybody when they
read that it's probably the
truth. It's not.
No cure. Don't think just
because you can cure red tide
you can tak e stuff out of
the water that's killing every-
thing else with high degrees of
nitrogen and phosphate from
gqlf courses; that's going to
still be in the water.
So just to say, oh, I got a
cure for red tide, is not really a
cure. You have to be realistic.

great antique stores and some
real good country and blue-

We got a chance to see the
Jack Daniels distillery, which
is in a dry county. There are 70
warehouses all over the place
storing this famous whiskey.
We also took a tour of the
largest breeding farm of Ten-
nessee Walking Horses near
Shelbyville, Tenn. We really
saw the meaning of "stud."
One other thing I got a
chance to talk to someone
about was the Land Trust of
Tennessee. This is where
parcels of land, often farm
land, are purchased with the
proviso they must remain in a
natural state, such as farming.
The people continue to use
the land and can pass it
down.
I know we established a
land trust in Sarasota County.
It was decided the name
should be changed to hous-
ing trust to mirror where the
emphasis will be. Hopefully it
will also do what Tennessee
and many other communities
are doing: preserving natural
land that's not necessarily
environmentally sensitive.
Of course, the purchase of
environmentally. sensitive
lands has been a very for-
ward-thinking program of the


county.

blame? I believe not.
On Aug, 27, as Hurricane
Katrina gathered strength and
was still bearing down on New
Orleans and the entire lower
Mississippi delta area, Pres-
ident G.W Bush was out ahead
of the storm. He signed a dec-
laration that a state of emer-
gency was then in effect for
that whole region. Also, that
region was declared a disaster
area at that time as well.
Therefore, from that moment
on, it was' entirely the re-

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

THE FLORIDA AGECY FOR WORKFORCE INNOVATION


'Employ Florida' helps displaced workers, employers


STAFF REPORT
The Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation has
introduced a special job-
matching service to displaced
workers and interested
employers. In addition to
serving displaced Hurricane
Katrina evacuee workers and
employers, the agency and its
work-force partners continue
to commit resources to assist
disaster victims in Florida and
in Mississippi through the
cooperation of local, state and
federal agencies.
Florida's job-matching Web
site, the Employ Florida Mar-
ketplace (www.employflori-
da.com) now includes a spe-
cial section listing companies
inviting applications from
Hurricane Katrina evacuees.
The companies are located
both in the impacted states
and Florida..
There is also a distinct sec-
tion for specific job listings
filed by any employers who
have the'word "Katrina" 'any-
where in the order title,
description, comments or
elsewhere. The Employ Florida
Marketplace "spiders" job list-
ings from other job sites all


over the Web.
Hurricane Katrina-related
listings are also uploaded to
the America's Job Bank Katrina
job-matching service spon-
sored by the U.S. Department of
Labor (www.jobsearch.org/
katrinajobs). The Employ
Florida Web site is averaging
more than 6,000 visitors a day.
Employ Florida links all of
Florida's work-force services
-state and local to each
other. The state partners are the
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion, the lead state work-force
agency, and Workforce Florida,
the state policy and oversight
board.
At the local level, there are 24
regional work-force boards that
administer nearly 100 one-stop
centers. Together these organi-
zations represent the Employ
Florida network of work-force
services and. resources.
The state and local boards
are composed of educational,
governmental and private busi-
ness resources to address local
work-force needs. The Employ
Florida Web site and toll-free
number, 866-FLA-2345, pro-
vide a consolidated point of
entry to all of Florida's quality

assists workers in Mississippi.


work-force resources and ser-
vices.
"Employ Florida provides a
comprehensive resource to
both businesses and workers,"'
said Susan Pareigis, director of
the Agency for Workforce Inno-
vation. "Florida is a leader in
job creation, and matching dis-
placed workers and employers
is just one way Florida work-
force partners continue to pro-

service center


vide assistance to those
impacted by disaster, offering
their time and skills not only
within Florida but in our neigh-
boring states as well."
Across Florida, work-force
partners are assisting Hurri-'
cane Katrina evacuees from
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama with a wide range of
employment and unemploy-
ment assistance and other


forms of humanitarian aid.
Assistance is beirig provided
in the Regional Workforce
Boards' One-Stop Centers.
Evacuees can use the computer
resource rooms in the centers
to file unemploymentcompen-
sation claims and access a vari-
ety of other services. Displaced
workers can apply for assis-
tance to be provided from fed-
eral agencies and from their
home states, look for tempo-
rary work here in Florida, pre-
pare/update resumes, and
access other needed
services/information provided
on the Internet.
The One-Stop Centers can
also refer evacuees to Red Cross
and FEMA resources. Evacuees
can locate the nearest One-
Stop Center by calling the
Employ Florida toll-free number
(866) FLA-2345 or visiting
employtlorida.com.
Since Sept. 4, Florida's work-
force partners have traveled to
Mississippi to provide self-con-
tained work-force services to
hurricane victims. They have
deployed and manned mobile
one-stop services in
Pascagoula, Ocean Springs,
Bay St. Louis, Picayune, Gulf-


port and Jackson. Working
closely with employees of the
Mississippi Department of
Employment, these Florida
volunteers have assisted Hur-
ricane Katrina victims in filing
for unemployment compen-
sation and in accessing other
needed services and informa-
tion.
Dee Rutko and Manuel
Gutierrez, both based at the
Career and Service Center of
Charlotte County, were among
those serving in Mississippi.
Rutko serves as employer ser-
vices Resource Room coordi-
nator at the center, while
Gutierrez is a member of the
Workforce Council staff.
Florida has an ongoing
agreement with other states
for mutual acceptance of
Unemployment Compensa-
tion claims filing. So far,
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion associates have
processed 4,495 unemploy-
ment claims for Louisiana
and 1,345 for'. Mississippi.
Over this past weekend, UC
staff worked extended hours
processing about 50 percent
of Mississippi's unemploy-
ment claims.

Service Center of Charlotte County, 19500
Toledo Blade Blvd., Port Charlotte.

The new chair of the
Tourism Committee for the
Venice Chamber of Com-
merce is Jean Trammell. I
don't think anyone in town
serves on more boards than
Jean who recently took a trip
to Seattle, Washington to the
National Conference of Com-
munity Foundations. I hope
she had a chance to enjoy
Pikes Market.
Sally Coulon reports the
book store at Unity Church on
Venice and Jackson Roads is
ready. The newly enlarged
store is open Thursdays and
offers adult and children's
books along with beautiful
inspirational gifts. Be sure to
stop by and see the selection
by popular authors like Dr.
Wayne Dyer and Deepak
Chopra.
The president of the Asso-
ciation of American Women,
Anne Herre reports the group
recently make some changes
in their bylaws at the National
Convention in Washington,.
D.C. Membership is now
open to women who have a
2-year-degree. Previously a 4-
year-degree was required.
For information about
AAUW, call Judy Evenson at
496-7790.
Katrina Benefit
One of the most popular
entertainers in the area is
Sarah-Rideout Slight who
performs with the Venice
Concert Band. Sarah- is also
director of the Lemon Bay
Chord Company. The group is
doing a benefit concert for
Hurricane Katrina victims on
Oct 13 at 7 p.m. at the Com-
munity Presbyterian Church
at 405 McCall Road in Engle-
wood.
Help wanted
If you have an extra adult
tricycle in your garage you
aren't using, consider donat-
ing it to the Venice Little
Theatre. Maureen Holland
reports they need one for
"Beauty and the Beast."
Men wanted
Must enjoy singing, center
stage and have a dream of a
star on their dressing room
door. Kent, Schroeder, presi-
dent of the Silver Foxes, says
the group desperately needs
men. Call Kent at 488-0021.
Have bike will travel
When it comes to being a
man about town, Gordon
Stahl ranks high on the list.
Gordon doesn't drive anymore
but that doesn't stop him.
A snazzy new collapsible 2
wheeler gets him where he
wants to go. I saw Gordon
recently at Beall's Outlet on
the Island. He spent the day
delivering flyers to all the
stores on Venice Avenue and
T.J. Maxx.
He had a few left for deliv-
ery when we met. Gordon
sings with the Barbershop
Chorus and likes spreading
the news about them.

STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER

The Perry family shares five motorcycle drag
racing championships.


The Perry family of Venice
has speed in their blood, on
their minds and around the
drag strip.
Mike Perry, 43, is the cur-
rent, 2004, Pro ET Champion
on the AMA/Prostar U.S. Drag,
Racing Championship circuit.
He was the number four plate
holder in 2003, fought his way
to the top last season against
239 other competitors in his
class, and won the Prostar Pro
ET championship in 2004.
This is one Venice family that
is chock full of motorcycle
drag racers. Perry's brothers
Tom and Rick also have
championships totaling
five in all.
"We try to race in all the
events we can," Perry said.
"Our dad would take us to
stock car races, then when
we were old enough we
started drag racing."
For the 2004 circuit Perry
hitched a ride with his brother
Tom. Together they traveled to
the races and slept in a rig.
Perry won the first event at
Gainesville and then placed
pretty much in the money at
the rest of the events through-
out the year.
"We actually missed one
of the events when Charley
blew through helping some


"It's just too big a commit-
ment to do it two years in a
row, so I've been doing it
locally."
Despite his recent success,
Perry decided to sit out 2005
and build another bike, but
he still makes it out to the
track every week. It's just the
way Perry enjoys spending
his weekends.'
All in the family
Perry realizes it's not a
normal family activity, but to
him and his ,family it's as
customary as going to the
-movies.
"It's just what we do, I
guess. Some brothers play
softball, some brothers fish
together, we all have the same
interest and it's motorcycle
drag racing. We've done it for
so many yeprs that we're well
known out there and we just
know everybody when we go
out to the tracks on the week-
end."
Since so many drivers
share the same interest it's no
surprise their families get into
it, too. Perry's daughters also
grew up in that environment.
Jessica Perry' 15 wants her
dad to rebuild his bike for her
to race when she outgrows
her junior dragster.

friends out there."
"I've got plans for putting
together a stock motor so
she can cut her teeth on it
out there," Perry said. "There
are a lot of women that race
with us. Not a lot, but there's
half a dozen or so. Some of
them have made it to the
professional level like you
see on the weekend shows.


Mike Perry, the 2004 Prostar Pro ET champion, races to the finish line.


friends out, but still got lucky
and won the championship,"
he said.
With eight races on the
AMA Prostar circuit, drag
bikes are still not a real big
spectator sport.


His other daughter,
Courtney, races Friday night
at Sunshine and Jessica races
Saturday night at Desoto.
"On the weekends they go
out there I with me," Perry
said; "They've got a lot of


Girls can do it."
Perry will have to replace a
motor and put in the chassis
for Jessica as well as rebuild
the whole motor.
Perry's brother, Tom, is a
nine-time, top ten plate


holder in the category 'of
Funnybike. Tom won the
NHRA division 2 champi-
onship in 1983 and 1984. The
youngest brother, Rick, won
a championship in the Pro
Mod bracket in 1994.
Both brothers consider
winning a pleasure.
"I like getting the win
ticket. That's the best part.
Building them is a lot of fun.
It's not something I'd want to
do every day because it's very
frustrating and aggravating
at times. To be able to stand
back and look at what you
did. When I first ran it, it
almost hit the guard rail. I've
had to,switch the carburetors
on it. It's something I'd never
sell. I'd pass it on to my kids."
At the races
"There's not a lot of money
involved in it," Perry said.
'After winning the champi-
onship I think I only won
close to $4,000 all year long.
You're gonna burn through
that just to get to the races
and back."
Entry fees alone cost $160.
per race to be in two classes,
like Perry was doing. It takes
a lot of dedication and pas-
sion to race as much as he
does. It's also a bunch of fun
for him, despite the sacrifices.
"You've got to beef up the
transmission, the crankshaft
- everything on it to make it
stay together, or else it'll just
come apart. Drag racing is
really hard on them."
Perry's bike started out as a
1975 model. Bikes from that
era can handle drag racing
better than more recent mod-
els. That's not even mention-
ing the parts that must con-
stantly be replaced.
"They're straining so much


nitrous through," Perry said.
"It's just an incredible amount
of power they make."
Perry said a decent racing
bike will run you $10-12,000
to build. He said sometimes
you can buy a race-ready one
for about $7,000.
"It's really not a good idea
to build one," he said. "I tried
to do it the cheapest way I
could. I did all the labor
myself. I had a guy make the
frame."
Perry races at Desoto
Super Speedway every week-
end and heads to West Palm
Beach four or five times a
year and for all-bike events.
Thereare different brack-
ets and divisions with drag
bikes. Each brother races a
different one. Tom races
Funnybike, which tops out at
around 210 mph. Rick races
in Pro-Mod with speeds of
around 195 mph. Mike races
in Pro ET and Super Comp;
he has reached speeds of 159
mph."
"You've got to be pretty
agile or it'll get away from
you. It's all in technique and
how to ride the bike or it'll
spit you right off the back.
The G-forces, I've seen be-
ginners roll right off the bike
because it hits so hard."
Without the wheelie bar
the bike will just want to pop
a wheelie and flip over back-
ward. The rigid suspension
causes all the energy to
go to the rider.
"It's pretty intense," Perry
said. "You can make a lot of
money doing it, but it's stiff
competition."
The Perry racing team is
considered one of the heavy-
hitters at the track, but they

Sarasota doctor is first in region to implant a
cardiac patch developed to prevent people from
suffering certain kinds of strokes, and in the
future, possibly migraines.


STAFF REPORT


Like all babies, Dennis
Faulkner was born with a hole
in his heart. But unlike most,
the hole never closed proper-
ly after his birth. Last week, he
discovered the tiny opening
was the most likely cause of
several strokes he suffered
since turning 50.
The opening, known as the
patent foramen ovale (PFO),
is a normal part of fetal devel-
opment. But in about one in
four people, the hole does not
close properly, letting blood
cross from one side of the
heart to the other, increasing
a person's risk of dangerous
blood clots and stroke.
Until recently, the only
treatment option was long-
term drug therapy with blood
thinners, such as coumadin,
or open-heart surgery to
close the hole. But a new pro-
cedure introduced at Sara-
sota Memorial last week
sealed Faulkner's heart in less
than an hour-without sur-
gery or general anesthesia.
After less than 24 hours of
observation in the hospital,
Faulkner went home Friday
without complications or

restrictions.
"When I heard about this
new patch, I was definitely
game," said Faulkner, 62, of
Sarasota. "Medication wasn't
helping me, so my choices
were do nothing and risk
becoming totally paralyzed
by another stroke, or let doc-
tors crack open my chest and
have open-heart surgery."
The patch Faulkner is
referring to is the CardioSEAL
implant, commercially avail-
able in Europe, but only by
humanitarian device exemp-
tion by the Food & Drug
Administration in the United
States. Newer generations of
the implant are available
through clinical trials in the
U.S. Sarasota Memorial and
interventional cardiologist
Ricardo Yaryura, MD, are the
only approved study site and
specialist between Tampa
and Miami permitted to
implant the CardioSEAL or
enroll patients in the clinical
trial.
Because of. his age,
Faulkner did not qualify for
the trial for the newer genera-
tion device, Dr. Yaryura said,
but the FDA granted him a
humanitarian exemption for

the CardioSEAL because he
met all of the other criteria: he
suffered two cryptogenic
strokes (those with no known
cause), despite taking daily
doses of blood thinners and
aspirin after the first stroke.
And diagnostic studies had
revealed a PFO, leaving open-
heart surgery as his only
treatment option.
"It's a very low-risk proce-
dure that can even be used on
children," Dr. Yaryura said. "In
our studies, we are using the
device to reduce a person's
risk of having repeat strokes.
But, if the research bears out,
it could become a common
therapy for other conditions,
such as migraines, as well."
The CardioSEAL looks like
two opened square .umbrel-
las, which are folded into a
special tube called a catheter.
The catheter is inserted into a
vein in the leg and advanced
into the heart and through
the hole. The device is slowly
pushed out of the special
catheter allowing each side of
the device to open up and
cover each side of the hole
like a sandwich, closing the
hole or defect. When the
device is in proper position, it
is released from the special
catheter. Within a few days,
the body's own tissue will
begin to grow over the device.
By three to six months, the
device is completely covered
by heart tissue.

The new CardioSEAL is just barely bigger than a dime.


Studies show that as many
as 196,000 strokes a year are
caused by the. kind of heart
defect that Faulkner had-a
PFO. Openings in the heart
have also been linked to
migraines, and a separate
clinical trial is under way to
test whether the implant can
help rid people of debilitating
headaches. An estimated -28
million people in the United
States get migraines, and
studies of stroke survivors
suggest that half of the people
with migraines have PFOs.
Early research indicates that
closing holes in the heart has
eliminated migraines or
reduced their frequency in
half of people who under-
went the procedure.

By Vicki Connell, I
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I see advertisements for
hearing aids that have
"digital noise reduction."
What is this and how would
it help me hear better?
A. Hearing aids equipped
with digital noise reduction
systems try to differentiate
noise from desired speech
and reduce the amplification
of the noise while leaving the
desired speech signal intact.
In this ideal situation, the
hearing aid is supposed to
"know" what sounds it is
expected to "hear" and pass
on to the listener and what
sounds it should reject. The
hearing aids to this by
focusing on the acoustic
differences between 'speech
and noise. The nature of
speech* is sy'llablic with
intense vowel sounds
followed by weaker
consonant sounds. In normal
speech, there are between 4-6
syllables (called modula-
tions) per second. Most
digital noise reduction
systems are programmed to
look for these "modulations"
and the signals which contain
them and label this "speech."
However, when other sounds
are also present (noise), thby
fill the gaps between
syllables and even override
the vowel intensity peaks
which causes the hearing aid
to label ALL sounds as
noise. When this occurs, the
hearing aid automatically
turns itself down making it
MORE DIFFICULT, not
easier, to hear in noise.
Fortunately, there are some
types of hearing aids which
are "multi-band" making is
possible to reduce
.amplification in the noisiest
channels only. The
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers
are specially trained to
program modem digital noise
reduction circuits to insure
they improve speech
understanding in noise. Call
them at 492-4327 to receive
more information about DNR
circuits or to have your own
hearing aid reprogrammed to
improve its performance.

LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

One of the first animals I
saw in the wild after moving
to Florida was a coyote. It was
skirting the edge of a wooded
area, moving carefully in tall
grass. It was late in the after-
noon.
They generally hunt alone,
unless they're after deer or
other larger prey. Coyotes
seem to favor rabbits, rats,
mice, grasshoppers, frogs,
toads and snakes, though
their diets can also include
berries, fruit and carrion.
They would seem to make
good neighbors for humans.
Coyotes generally weigh 20
to 40 pounds, according to
"Coyote" (or El Coyote) by
Jalma Barrett. The English
and Spanish language books
are available from Blackbirch
Press, or can probably be
found in your local library.
They're illustrated by yours
truly. Our Florida coyotes
tend toward the smaller size.
By the way, if you see an
animal from a distance and
you're not sure whether it's a
coyote, remember this "tail of
the tale." A coyote runs with
its tail down. A wolf runs with
its tail straight out. A dog runs
with its tail carried up.

species have similar diets,
except wolves are capable of
also taking larger prey. I
believe that coyotes are an
important part of our
American scene, and I hope
I'll-always be able to see them
in the wild. They're worthy of
our respect and protection.
Unfortunately for the coyote,
not everyone agrees with me.
But coyotes do serve an eco-
logical purpose in the scheme
of things. Eradication of coy-

Sarasota County Although most homes
for sale are resales, one out of four
homebuyers purchases a new home. Which is
better: Existing or new? The right answer of
course, is up to you. Both resales and new
homes offer advantages. Existing homes are
less expensive on average, and are generally
close to, and enjoy the warmth and
surroundings of established neighborhoods
often with mature landscaping.
New homes, on the other hand, offer
innovative use of space, greater energy
efficiency and choices of options and
upgrades. Everything is new and modem.
Most people consider both new and existing
homes before they decide to purchase.

I'm not sure whether men
own cars, or cars own them!
So many of the male species
look on their cars as their
baby or maybe their mistress?
I dunno!
For most women, a car is a
way to get from one place to
another. For men, cars are
more than that; they are a
hobby or even a passion. You
know how they love to polish
the white walls and the hood
ornaments. Do you think it's
the same kinship that the
Native Americans felt for their
ponies? Or the warriors of old
felt for their special steed? Do
you reckon those Greek war-
riors polished their chariots
to a high luster? How about
how Roy Rogers felt for his
Trigger, and Gene Autry felt
for Champion? We have all
heard stories about people
who feel so in sync with their
mount that they become as

Retirement needs
Kathy Black, PhD., assis-


other love affair


one with them.
My older brother absolute-
ly loved horses. He would
spend hours brushing and
currying them to a gleaming
polish. I don't remember him
riding horses much, but he
sure liked to show them off,
pulling a wagon or a sleigh
full of friends. One of his
favorite tricks was to deftly
dump a sleigh full of church
friends into a snow bank.
His interest in horses was
so great he would once in a
while skip school to go to a
horse sale. The principal
warned him if he skipped
school one more time he
would be expelled. He did
and he was. That was a little
harsh. His four brothers and
sisters went to college and he
felt the stigma of loss all of his
life. Can you imagine a stu-
dent being kicked out of
schooltoday for such a minor
offense? I dunno.
To continue with-my tale,
after he was expelled my
brother joined the Bell
Telephone Company proba-
bly about 1918 or 1919. He
was sent to Southern Florida,
where he worked with a crew
putting up telephone poles
and lines. They routinely had
to fight off wild alligators and
boars and whatever other
wild beasts came their way.
My parents were devastated
and worried sick about him.

. They didn't see or hear from
him for a year.
Some years later he
returned to where my parents
were living in Bloomington,
and began working at a filling
station. There he began his
love of cars. He eventually
bought the DX filling station
and then a second one. He
was always proud that many
of the top people at the uni-
versity were his friends and
customers. ,
Would you believe that this
kid who was kicked out of
school and left town because
he was embarrassed was even-
tually able to buy a big auto-
mobile dealership? His many
friends became, good cus-
tomers, and it turned out he
was more successful than the
rest of us who went to college.
That happens sometimes,
doesn't it?
By this time he had enough,
money to buy his own prize
horse. He had in later years
requested when he died his
body be drawn through the
streets of Bloomington in a
carriage by four handsome
horses. And so it was.

Food.
Previously it was what
ever we could catch, grow,
or buy.
After World War II we
moved quickly into conve-
nience foods. The first TV din-
ners came out. Fast food
was/is never fast enough. We
did not give too much
thought to nutritional value
or fat content. Bigger soon
became better.
Now we find that what we
eat plays an enormous role in
not only our health but in
how long we live. We find we
can positively influence
chronic diseases by eating the
correct foods.
Even our doctors now
encourage vitamins and sup-
plements and make major

Seniors needed
The Senior Companion of
Southwest Florida needs
senior volunteers, age 60 or
older, to be companions and
friends to homebound sen-
iors and others who have dif-


diet recommendations.
Fruits, vegetables and whole
grains are in cheeseburgers
and fries are out!
As the price of living goes
up our elders on fixed
incomes continue to cut
expenses.
The option of going to a
smaller house is no longer a
method to. reduce expenses
because of the escalation of
prices, taxes and astronomi-
cal homeowners insurance
rate.
Our elders have cut out the
newspaper, cut out air condi-
tioning, cut their medicines
in half, if they buy them at all,
and buy less food and lower
quality food.
Then Catch 22 steps in as
the doctors see their weight
go up or down, frailty
increase, and their general
health deteriorate; the doc-
tors recommend vitamins
and nutritional drinks. But
the elder is not able to pur-
chase the nutritional drink at
more than a $1.00 per can nor
the multivitamin, calcium,
and B complex supplements.
This just adds to the financial
stress the elder is under.
Our community is lucky to
have -both the Meals on
Wheels Program 'and the


ficulty with daily-living tasks.

hours a week and receive a

Delivered Meal Program. But
this is only one meal per day.
We also have the local Food
Pantry supported by many
area faith groups. All Faiths
Food Bank does a monthly
distribution through various
community organizations
and faith groups. But this still
does not meet the need, espe-
cially in nutritional value. A
study out of the University of
California compared the cost
of the USDA's Thrifty Food
Plan market basket versus the
now recommended foods of
whole grains and lean meats
and poultry. The cost equals
about a 35 percent to 40 per-
cent increase of low-income
consumers food budgets.
When one struggles to pay for
electricity, housing, trans-
portation, taxes and medi-
cine, there is not an option for
an increase of 40 percent in
ones food budget. This means
a continuation of foods that
only exacerbate the health
issues of the elders. What is an
elder to do?

Help with senior housing


. J .: .: o-
JIM MILLER
SAVVY SENIOR

Dear Savvy Senior,
My husband and I are both
nearing our 60s and are looking
to make some changes to our
home, or to move to a different
house. Our youngest child
recently graduated from col-
lege and moved out, and we
think now is a good time to do
it. We are also looking to
explore some different design
options that can make the
house a safer and easier place to
grow old in. Where can we get
some help with our homestead
planning?
Alone At Last

Dear Alone,

Deciding whether to remodel
or move is a big decision that
can cost big bucks, so take
your time and do your
homework before you jump


into anything.
Ready for Change?
There are lot's things to con-
sider when planning your
ideal retirement home -
whether it's to remodel or
move. Here are few basic
questions to ask yourself to
help you figure out what's
best for you. .
Are the kids really gone?
They're known as
"boomerang kids," young
adults, who move out of their
parents' house, to go to col-
lege, get married or just strut
their independence, but later
return. It's estimated that ,
roughly one in 10 adults in
the United States, ages 25 -
34 are living with their par-
ents. So, before you decide to
convert your child's bedroom
into a home office or retire to
a smaller home in another
state, ask yourself if they're
really gone.
Do.you like your neigh-
borhood? It may be that you
chose your current home
mainly because of its school
district. But now that schools
are no longer a factor, maybe
you're itching to leave the
suburbs and settle down-
town, or in a mountain
cabin, or a seaside cottage.
On the other hand, if you
really love your neighbor-


hood, you have a strong rea-
son to stay put. A great
neighborhood is hard to
replicate. Remodeling is a.
way to keep what you already
love and make it even better.
Will your home be senior-
friendly? Today there are
dozens of home modifica-
tions and assistive devices
(also known as universal
design) that can help make a
home whether you're
remodeling or building a
new house safer and more
user-friendly as you age. The
North Carolina State Center
for Universal Design provides
great information and inex-
pensive publications that can
help you learn more. Visit
centerforuniversaldesign.org
or call (800)-647-6777.
What will it cost? Both
choices remodeling and
moving can be expensive.
For some, seduced by the
glamor of a whirlpool tub or
extravagant new kitchen, a
remodeling project can
quickly become a money pit.
On the other hand, mov-
ing can be costly too when
you consider possible.
expenses like getting your
home ready for sale, real
estate sales commission,
closing costs, moving
expenses and the cost of dec-
orating your new home.


g issues


Remodel or move?
To help you sort through the
pros and cons and expenses
of remodeling or moving is
an organization called
"Remodel or Move." An inde-
pendent resource that offers
a free online calculator at
remodelormove.com, or
worksheet sent by mail or e-
mail ((to receive a free copy,
call (888)-825-4169), that can
help you determine what's
financially best for you by
calculating the cost of your
hypothetical remodeling pro-
ject versus the cost to move.
It also taps into your emo-
tions by asking questions
about how you feel about
your neighborhood, your
floor plan and the remodel-
ing process, and makes a rec-
ommendation geared to your
specific needs and lifestyle.
Also available is their handy
new book, "Remodel or
Move? Make the Right
Decision" ($15.95), written by
Dan Fritschen. It's available
online and in bookstores
nationwide.

fringe on top through a gen-

once again, we stopped at the
totems and ambled past
statues and cedars, and along
the sea. A guide explained the
park as we looked on. Truth to
tell, at the back end of the
tour I was staying awake with
some difficulty. The rhythmic
clop-clop, clop-clop, clop-
clop of horse hooves beck-
oned me to drift off-- or was
it the fresh air?
I took my third trip to the
park because I needed some
exercise, and decided that a
person who visits Vancouver
without riding a bike does
not wholly visit Vancouver.
Stanley Park has a long sea-
wall with beautiful views, and
that seawall has a bike path
on top. In addition, paths run
in all directions inside the
park. Rental bikes -are avail-
able just outside -the main
entrance, and they're well
maintained.
I admit to having no sense
of direction. This is great if
you believe that getting lost is
the best way to learn a place,
but barely tolerable when
you're on a' bike in what
amounts to the woods. You
may have to do a lot of uphill
pedaling to getyourself found

in Vancouver is many a day-
the totems impart an energy
that is almost palpable, as
though they are about to take
off, rocketlike, and color the
heavens. It's not unusual for
tourists to see them once,
then come back on the, same
park visit'to see them again,
and not be able to tell you
why. One reason may be that
you don't find collections- of
totem poles in many places,
and certainly not in a setting
like Stanley Park.

parts of the park may be in

secluded or lonely, so every
few minutes, we'd find some-
one who knew the park well
- or well enough to point us
to a place we wanted to be.
We ended up, at one point,
at Stanley Park's lovely tea-

"It takes a lot of focus just
to cut a good tree," Perry
said. '"A driver's reaction time
is an important key to suc-
cess. Drivers have got to
have a lot of focus."
At work
The Perrys take work as
seriously as theydo their play.
Perry Concrete, owned by
oldest brother Tom is kept
busy laying the foundations
for homes throughout the
sun coast.
"We probably pour 500-
800 yards a week," Perry said.
"We do a lot of houses. From
North Port all the way up to
Parrish."
.Racing is something that
the Perrys take very serious-
ly. Although they don't dis-
play their talents on the
streets.
"We never have done
much street racing, we've
always gone to the strip,"
Perry said. "It's no fun on the
street. It's too dangerous.
There you know what you
go there to do and there's a
purse that you're racing
for."

GLOSSARY OF DRAG RACING TERMS
AIR BOX: Used primarily on Pro Stock Motorcycles, it settles "negative air" around carburetors the
way a hood scoop does on a car.
BURNOUT: spinning the rear tires in water to heat and clean them prior to a run for better traction.
A burnout precedes every run.
CHRISTMAS TREE: Also called the Tree, it is the noticeable electronic starting device between the
lanes on the starting line.
DIAPER: an absorbent blanket made from ballistic material, often Kevlar, that surrounds the oil pan
to contain oil and parts in case of an engine explosion.
ELAPSED TIME: the time it takes a vehicle to travel from the starting line to the finish line. Also
called e.t.
FOUL START: indicated by a red light on the Christmas Tree when a car has left the starting line
before the green light, or starting signal.
HEADER: a fine-tuned exhaust system that routes exhaust from the engine; replaces conventional
exhaust manifolds.
INDEX: the expected performance for vehicles in a class as assigned by NHRA. It allows various
classes of cars in the same category to race together competitively.
METHANOL: pure methyl alcohol produced by synthesis; used in Top Alcohol Dragsters and Top
Alcohol Funny Cars.
NITROMETHANE: Produced specifically as a fuel for drag racing, it is the result of a chemical
reaction between nitric acid and propane.
PRE-STAGE: to position the front wheels about seven inches behind the starting line so the small
yellow lights atop that driver's side of the Christmas Tree are glowing.
REACTION TIME: the time it takes a driver to react to the green starting light on the Christmas
Tree, measured in thousandths of a second.
STAGE: to position the front wheels right on the starting line so the small yellow lights below the
pre-stage lights are glowing. Once both drivers are staged, the calibrated countdown (see
Christmas Tree) may begin.
TURBOCHARGER: an exhaust-driven intake air compressor (see supercharger).
WHEELIE BAR: used to prevent excessive front-wheel lift.

STORY AND PHOTOS
BY JEFF TAVARES
PHOTO EDITOR
In the eyes of the 13 children, one can
see the innocence of youth and the
passion for the craft they are learning.
The children are participating in
Venice Little Theater's Beginning
Creative Dramatics class, which meets
Thursday for 10 weeks.
There are no agents, producers, or
theater executives in this 40-foot by 40-
foot sparse rehearsal room on the sec-
ond floor of the VLT, only children filled
with a excitement to do the very best
they can as actors.
"Here's a space where, whatever they
do, they can't do anything wrong. It's a
free space to be allowed the freedom to
try," explains Becky Holahan, who has
taught children's drama classes for nine
years atVLT.
Holahan, originally from Mason City,
Iowa, began her acting and teaching
career just 10 years ago in Sarasota.
Holahan, who is also an actor at the
VLT, believes her acting classes for chil-
dren will teach them life skills along
with the process of acting.
Holahan the actor explains, "To teach
them to focus and concentrate because
we know they're creative. But it takes a lot
more where you're on stage than to just
be creative you have to be a thinker,
and you have to pay attention and be
conscious of what's going on, so that
you're in the moment, and not worried
about what's happening backstage."
Holahan the teacher adds, "Through
the games we learn self-control and self-
discipline, which is good because they
can use those tools in everything that
they do."
The actor's day job is as a teacher in
the dance department at Riverview High
School.
She also teaches at Epiphany Middle
School, where they have started a drama
class.

The children
For some of the children, ages 8 to 10,
this is the second year of acting classes.
In a game that Holahan uses to inspire
them to create characters, the children

go through bins of clothes and piece
together a costume.
Eight-year-old Tanner Lansdale choos-
es a black overcoat and large gray hat, and
searches his creativity for a character.
"Oh, I haven't got up a good name (for
his character), but I'm pretty sure I'm
aiming for Mr. Men in Black, a.ka. Mr.
M.I.B.," says the outgoing Lansdale.
When asked whether he would like to
be an actor someday, Tanner responds
simply, "Maybe."
Roxanne Smith, 9, who makes it very
clear prefers to be called Roxy, is in her
second year of acting classes.
"I like learning new stuff and playing
games and stuff," says Smith,. who adds,
"We learn how to pay attention to what
you're doing and not looking at the audi-
ence."
VLT's programs
Sandy Davisson is VLT's director of
education and outreach and seems very
happy to have Becky Holahan as one of
the acting class teachers.
"Miss Becky is the pied piper of Venice
Little Theater classes," says Davisson.
"She has a talent to look at a child and
know their needs."
Davisson, who has been in charge of
classes for seven years, believes the the-
ater builds in the children many good
qualities.
"So many parents tell me how it has
helped in their (the children's) demeanor,
decreasing their fears and bringing them
more acceptance of themselves," explains
Davisson.
Future actors ?
Although some of the children express
an interest in becoming actors, most in
the room are just enjoying their 90 min-
utes of escape into the theater experience.
With colorful costumes and imagina-
tions, these children are captivated by
their teacher and each other.
Will one of these children become a
future actor?
Maybe it will be Roxy, who responds to
whether she will want to be an actor:
"Maybe an actress or maybe a singer. All
of it."

jtavares@venicegondoliercom.


"They're open and free and

willing to try and they're

just not afraid."
