Friends reach out to help
someone in need.


Council members want to make sure police
service matches expectations as Matrix Report
shows the need for management changes and
better oversight.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Venice City Council mem-
ber Bill Willson tried to dis-
count published reports of a
police officer who ignored
someone that ran a stop light.
Three days after that Gon-
dolier Sun story was pub-
lished, Willson experienced a
similar situation. Someone
blew through a stop sign he
was stopped at, and' the


marked police car behind
Willson did nothing, accord-
ing to what he told his fellow
council members Tuesday.
When Willson got out of
his car and asked if the patrol
officer was going to go after
the traffic violator, the re-
sponse he got was, "Yeah
right, OK."
That was an unacceptable
response, Willson said.
"Obviously, he didn't know
I was a city council member,"


Willson said. "But it shouldn't
take me being a city council
member for the response to
be different.
"I read this (Matrix Re-
port), and I don't get this
warm, fuzzy feeling that we're
giving a high level of service
to citizens.... It concerns me
about what is the pervading
attitude out there (among
Venice police)."
Those were not the only
criticisms .issued by city
council as the final 124-page
audit report onVPD manage-
ment and operations were
presented Tuesday by Matrix
Consultants.
Among the criticisms were
a lack of proper documenta-


tion, insufficient manage-
ment oversight of patrol offi-
cer work duties and even
some overstaffing issues.
Police Chief Jim Hanks,
who is retiring in March after
spending his entire career
with VPD, defended the de-
partment and questioned
some of Matrix's findings.
There is room for improve-
ment, Hanks said, but the re-
port fails to consider changes
in 2005 and all of the positive
community programs.
Key criticisms
The report cost the city
$50,000 and was ordered in
April by City Manager Marty
Black, after council approval.


Matrix has quantified
many long-standing issues at
VPD that existed before
Hanks took over as chief five
years ago, Black said.
Among the key recom-
mendations in the Matrix
Report were:
Internal Affairs The
system for handling adminis-
trative investigations and citi-
zen complaints does not en-
sure all complaints are re-
corded or investigated. Rec-
ords are "disorganized and
co-mingled with personnel
records."
Proactive time Ac-
cording to the final report,

First two Venice Legacy Awards presented


STAFF REPORT

The late Betty Arnall,
founder of the city's archives,
was honored with the first-
ever Venice Legacy Award"
from the Venice Historical
Commission, at Tuesday's city
council meeting.
The posthumous award
was accepted by Venice resi-
dent George Ronald, Arnall's
son. A second award was pre-,
sented in honor of the Bro-
therhood of Locomotive
Engineers..
The BLE union is credited
for building much ofVenice in
the 1920s as an investment
tool, and BLE President Don
Hahs, who accepted the
award, joked about how his


organization wishes they still
owned land here.
'The city has now grown to
be what we envisioned it to be
in the 1920s," Halis told the
crowd. "The city is really beau-
tiful....We're proud of our con-
tributions here, though we did-
n't really profit by it."
The Venice Historical
Commission plans to annual-
ly honor individuals or orga-
nizations for their contribu-
tions to historical preserva-
tion or significant historical
impact in the Venice area.
In addition to the award
presentation, engraved pav-
ing stones acknowledging
recipients will be placed in a
prominent area of the Lord
Family House garden.

grew up, married and raised
her family in Venice. She was
dedicated to collecting, docu-

Library, then moved to larger
quarters in Venice City Hall,
where they became known as
the Venice Archives and Area
Historical Collection.
Arnall served as the first
director of historical re-
sources for the city of Venice

chair of the Friends of the
Library Historical Collection
Committee from 1976 to

CMU District


passes first vote


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Venice City Council finally
jumped past all the unan-
swered questions, and passed
the first reading of the Com-
mercial Mixed-Use zoning
district.
This was the third consec-
utive council meeting .in,
which there was debate.
That doesn't mean there
wasn't plenty of debate. Vice
Mayor lohn Moore led the
questioning about how con-
dominium-hotel units are
defined, and the fact a maxi-
mum density doesn't exist.
Council members also
stressed they may vote it
down or ask for more changes
when CIMU comes back for
final reading.
"If we pass these ideas,
they'll still be open to revi-
sions should you all come to
your senses," council mem-


ber John Simmonds said.
The CMU designation has
generated plenty of chal-
lengers and supporters.
Drafted by developer Mike
Miller and his attorney, Jeff
Boone, this district would
allow for three or more uses
- such as entertainment,
retail, hotel, dining, residen-
tial -to take place all within
the same building. None of
the city's existing districts
incorporates this many uses
to create an activityy center"
mixing residential, commer-
cial and tourist.
If this new zoning district is
created, Miller hopes to
obtain CMU zoning on 3.5
acres of property next to his
three Waterfront on Venice
Island condominiums, two of
which are already built.
Critics are worried tall
buildings, increased traffic

Concerns aired at


school forum

Community members let the Sarasota County
School Board-know how they feel about a longer
school day and continuing the one-mill property
tax.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Do the benefits of a longer
school day outweigh disrup-
tions to family schedules?
Is the district too big and
should it subdivide or decen-
tralize? Should the district
create a South County satel-
lite administrative office to
better meet community
needs?
Why doesn't the district


use zero-based budgeting,
instead of value added bud-
geting that seems to inflate
costs with each passing year?
What is the school district
doing with the $35 million in
excess funds raised from the
last referendum?
These were just some of
the questions and concerns
raised at last night's commu-
nity dialogue meeting.

Sewage spill near Blackburn Canal


. City of Venice Unities De-
partment crews were called
to a sewage spill when a
power outage, resulting
from high winds produced
by Hurricane Wilma on
Monday, caused an open
clean-out near a lift station
to leak raw sewage.
The incident happened


in the residential neighbor-
hood of Bridle Oaks.
The gravity system was
surcharged because of the
power outage. An earthen
dike was constructed to con-
tain the sewage and a vacu-
um truck cleaned up the

A helping hand for the canvas man


BY CURISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


A fundraiser for Mike
Clark, the 20-year operator
and owner of Clark Canvas in
Venice, was held at the Venice
Yacht Club on Sunday.
Clark was recently diag-
nosed with an inoperable
cancerous brain tumor, and
to help support Clark's family
during this hard time, the
Venice Yacht Club has estab-
lished a trust fund in his
name.
"He has a terminal illness.
There's no cure," said Mike
O'Leery, one of the fundraiser
coordinators and a friend of
Clark's. "He needs the help
of his friends."
Due to bad experiences
in the past with physicians,


Clark was reluctant to see a
doctor when signs of the can-
cer first appeared. This gave
it time to spread.
O'Leery ran into Clark a
few months ago and, being a
doctor himself, knew Clark
was in bad shape. O'Leery in-
sisted he see a doctor and
immediately drove him to
one.
"He took off his bandana
... the whole top of his head
is cancer," he said. "(The
doctor) was overwhelmed. It's
just too far gone and too ex-
tensive."
Clark, a small business
owner, does not have health
insurance. With three children
in college, this presents a
major financial problem.
"Since we put him in the
hospital, he's been unable to


Pam Cameron, coordinator of the fundraiser held for canvas man Mike Clark, was at the Venice Yacht Club on Sunday selling raf-
fle tickets and gathering donations from the crowd of supporters that arrived.

work," O'Leery said. "He was
the sole income .for the
family."
Clark's three kids are all
relying on scholarships and
holding down jobs to keep
themselves in college.
"But that's not enough to
get the job done," O'Leery
said.

Donations, raffles
and auctions
At the yacht club on Sun-
day, a large group of Clark
family friends and customers
gathered to show support
for Mike Clark and donate to
his trust fund.
Pam Cameron 'was the
driving force behind the
fundraising event. ........
"We are truly honored to
be able to do this for Mike,"
Cameron ?aid. "We hope
that things improve, although
we know the prognosis isn't
good.", .
The turnout was very
high, but some believe thai
Hurricane Vljima ma' have


affected the size of the crowd.
"We had hoped to have a
little more (people), but I
think the weather scared
them away," Joe Dombrowski
said. "We're here for a won-
derful man. He's touched all
of our hearts. Now he's
reached a point in his life
where (his health) is a serious
problem."
More than $18,000 was


raised through donations,
raffles and auctions on Sun-
day alone.
"He really deserves it. I-e
gave a lot back to this com-
munity,;" said Joe Pokorrey,
another friend of Clark's.
Although the diagnosis is
not good, Clark's friends are
trying to keep things as up-
beat as they can by looking
back on better days.


"Even when he's going
through something like that,
he's still the Mike we all
know," Steve Picazio said. "He
really cares about people."
To donate to the Mike
Clark trust fund, contact Pam
Cameron at 497-3865.

GCCFV doles out $1.39 million in grants


STAFF REPORT


Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice's board
of directors approved $1.39
million in grants to local non-
profit organizations at its
meeting Oct. 18. The grant
awards will support a diverse
range of initiatives and pro-
grams in communities the
foundation serves, from pro-
.jects to improve early child-
hood education and expand
access to health-care services
to original local TV program-
ming highlighting the people
and places of our community.
The growing regional audi-
ence ofWEDU's 'A Gulf Coast
Journal with Jack Perkins" will
enjoy 12 new episodes of the
popular program next year
thanks to a foundation grant
of $236,355 to Florida West
Coast Public Broadcasting.
This grant will enable
WEDU to produce a third year
of the monthly TV magazine,
which showcases the people,
history, culture and events of
our local communities. In the
program's successful second
season, WEDU increased the
number of times it rebroad-
cast past episodes, and the
program also began airing on
Sarasota's TV19 government
access channel and the Edu-
cation Channel.
Two foundation grants
awarded from the Community
Health Endowment Fund will
enable the Sarasota County
Health Department to expand
the capacity and reach of local
health-care services.
A grant of $198,020 over
two years will help fund the
creation and staffing of sever-
al neighborhood-based health
information, referral and out-
reach centers in the Venice
area.
Taking their name from the
Community Health Improve-
ment Partnership, the new
CHIP Centers' will build
awareness of available health
and wellness services, en-
abling residents to take more
responsibility for their own
health. The local initiative was
created by the Laurel/Os-
prey/V\enice/Nokomnis Com-
munity Health Action Team, a
committee of CHIP.
A second foundation grant
will provide $212,000 over
three years as start-up fund-
ing for a pharmaceutical pro-
gram at the North Port Health
and Family Service Center.


This program will meet a crit-

County.
In the past five years, Gold
Seal has helped nearly 40
local child care centers secure
national accreditation, and it
has provided vital support to
teachers and families caring
for children with special
needs. The next phase of the
project will build on its past
success while incorporating
several new components, in-

6A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN WEDNESDAY, OCT. 2~, 2005


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares @venicegondolier.com
Sarasota County School District Superintendent Gary Norris
sets the stage for the community dialogue last night at Venice
Elementary. Norris gave an overview of where the district is
headed and invited the public to comment and ask questions
about county schools.


FORUM from page 1A
The evening consisted of
an overview given by Super-
intendent Gary Norris, fol-
lowed by breakout discus-
sions, and concluding with a
recap of consensus issues.
"What scares me to death,".
Norris said, is students in
India and China have more
advanced. broadband tech-
nology than American stu-
dents. These kids are going to
blow us away in technology."
Norris reviewed his Next
Generation Learning plan,
with its high-tech approach
to education and promoting
top notch education in coun-
ty schools.
Rants and raves
During breakout sessions,
parents took the opportunity
to raise concerns about a
longer school day and their
children getting home too
late. Participants reached no
consensus on support for the
longer day, scheduled to go
into effect next school year if
the education referendum
passes in March.
Parents whose children
participate in after-school
clubs and sports questioned
whether their kids would
arrive home after they do, and
how it would affect their own
complicated schedules.
For others, it was a chance
to let district officials know
they feel. The Landings
administrative office has too
much power. An elder from


Venice, a former mayor and
school board member in
another state, said he'd yet to
see a school board that didn't
want to spend more than the
previous year and tack on
additional programs. He
advocated a zero-based bud-
geting process to thwart infla-
tionary pressures.
The discussion will help
determine the fate of a refer-
endum and, by association,
Superintendent Gary Norris's
"NeXt Generation Learning"
plan a five-year plan that
counts on future referendum
funds to implement technol-
ogy throughout the district
and improve education pro-
grams and graduation rates.
, Norris's long-range plan
also pays for salary increases
commensurate with a longer
school day. Additional salary
increases are tied to training.
The raises were agreed to by
administrators and union
officials over the summer. But
they are contingent upon
voter approval of the referen-
dum in March.
The forums were primarily
designed to gauge public sup-
port for a continued one-mill
property tax benefiting
schools.
The promise
For school district leaders,
the 2006 referendum will
make the difference between
moving forward or backward
for kids.
Between 1999 and 2002 the
district cut nearly $37 million


from the operating budget,
partly due to a failed referen-
dum in the summer of 2000.
That led to widespread dis-
trust of the school board and
school system, say district
officials.
Unless and until the state
of Florida starts increasing its
financial support of public
schools, they say, the district


will again turn to voters! for a
continuation of the one-mill
levy to ensure continued
excellence in the district.
In 2002 the district suc-
cessfully passed a referen-
dum to boost school operat-
ing revenues. The promise
was to improve or preserve

LEGACY from page lA


railroad union was lured into
the Florida land boom in
1925. During the next three
years, it invested consider-
able resources in developing
the model city of Venice in
consultation with city plan-
ner John Nolen.
The BLE was responsible
for building four hotels, sev-
eral commercial buildings, an
apartment district, Venezia
Park and Edgewood residen-
tial neighborhoods, as well as


numerous parks and more
than 25 miles of roads and
sidewalks. All buildings were
designed and constructed in
the Northern Italian Renais-
sance architectural style.
The union's development
efforts were terminated when
the Florida land boom fal-
tered. However, the unique
historical character and com-
munity concept of Venice
endure because of the BLE's
early influence.


VPD from page 1 A


about 70 percent of an offi-
cer's shift is spent waiting to
respond to a police call. Ma-
trix states that amount should
be between 40-50 percent.
Another problem was that
VPD management does not
assign "proactive time" duties
and does not track how offi-
cers spend that time.
Traffic tickets Traffic
enforcement is done during
proactive time. Matrix stated
the ratio of traffic write-ups to
injury crashes (29-to-1) falls
well short of national stan-
dards at 40-to-l, according to


the report. Hanks stated that
the number of traffic tickets is
up 30 percent this year over
2004's numbers. It's unclear
how that will affect the ratio,
however, because the num-
ber of' traffic warnings is
down.
Inspections VPD does
not have a procedure in place
for staff inspections to make
sure agency policies and pro-
cedures are followed.
Staffing Matrix sug-
gests cutting back the patrol
division to 25 officers and
eliminating two sergeant po-


sitions, but creating three
spots for boating and parks
patrols. There could be a net
loss of officers. It also suggests
contracting out dispatching
and school crossing-guard
positions.
Contained within the re-
port are surveys of VPD staff
performed this year in which
employees were highly criti-
cal of police management.
Results found that 0 percent
of employees think the com-
mand staff is innovative and
progressive, and 68 percent of
employees rated the morale


as low.
Patrol officers continue'
working under a contract that
expired more than a year ago
because the union and city
cannot reach a labor agree.-
ment.
What's next?
City council approved hir-
ing the search firm Slavin
Management Consultants, at
a. cost of nearly $19,000, to
find a replacement for Hanks.
Black has pointed to the
Matrix Report as detailing the
expectations for any prospec-


tive police chief.
Hanks and current VPD
management already are
instituting many of the sug-
gestions. A second marine
patrol officer position has
been created, and the two
spots that will be parks and
bike path patrol officer are
still being defined.
Other key issues, like the
internal affairs problems,
must be addressed within 30
days. Hanks and the city
manager will work out details
on that, and an update report
is due back to city council in


November.
VPD also is stepping up
traffic enforcement, 'aid is
working toward addressing
issues with internal affairs,
reobtaining accreditation,
starting regular inspections
and clear daily duty assign-
ments for patrol officers.
"It's not because you don't
have good people, because
you do (have good people),"
said Travis Miller, vice presi-
dent of Matrix Consulting
Group.
"It's clear the resources are
here. It's just that internal

and other high-volume issues

ness," while supporters say
the business and redevelop-
ment a CMU project would
generate is greatly needed.
One of the latest revisions
to the CMU proposal was
adding the "conditional use"
process to approve any
heights taller than 35 feet.
Other changes include requir-
ing a minimum land area of
2.0 acres in order to apply for
CMU, and that unit owners in
the condominium hotel can-
not occupy the unit for more
than six months in any calen-
dar year.

Other items heard on Tues-
day:
New tickets Council
heard first reading of an ordi-
nance giving code enforce-,
ment officers the power to
issue citations much like a
parking ticket to tenants
for code violations. Currently,
only property owners can be
fined, and fees are collected
by placing liens against a per-
son's property. Tickets can be
for up to $500, and all chal-
lenges must be in front of a
judge, rather than Venice
Municipal Code Enforcement
Board. Items that could lead
to a $500 ticket include: sea
turtle light rules, unlicensed
contracting and unsafe-
house violations. -

Council voted to rezone near-

intersection of Knights Trail

Pilot's

father talks

following

fatal crash

BY WWSB-TV 7 NEWS
The father of a young man
killed in a plane crash Oct. 15
is talking.
Jerry Jones lost his son,
Steve, Oct. 15, when his
home-built plane plunged
into the Gulf of Mexico during
its landing approach, but the
former pilot says it hasn't
changed his mind about fly-
ing.
"Statistics will show you
that flying is probably safer
then. almost anything you can
do ... even taking, a bath in
your own bathtub," Jones
said.
Jones is right, but lately
Venice Municipal Airport has
had some bad luck.
Since 2001, there have
been eight plane crashes near
the airport, and just within
the past two years, six deaths,
according to the National
Transportation Safety Board.
Vince is a local resident
who fishes at the pier next to
the airport and remembers a
close call.
"There is this antenna that
is out at the end of the pier,"
Vince said. "The pier is 700
feet long. (The pilot) must
have been looking for the air-
field, but he almost hit the
antenna and we started run-
ning away from it."
Some of the main runways
bring planes just over the
hundreds of beachgoers every
day.
While the number may
appear to be high for those
who have crashed, the fact is
no one who was on the
ground has been hurt.
"Basically, there hasn't
been that many accidents in
Venice that actually occurred
in a populated area," Jones
said.
Most of the planes that
have gone down lately have
landed either short of the run-
way, th6 neighboring golf
course or the Gulf of Mexico.
The last. two happened just a
few hundred feet from the
pier.
"The airport, is behind us
and the pier is in front of us.
Nothing you can do about it,"
Vince said.
The Federal Aviation
Administration is expected to
start a preliminary investiga-
tion this week to find out
exactly what happened.

Crist issues



consumer warning



to Wilma victims


STAFF REPORT


Attorney General Charlie
Crist advises Floridians af-
fected by Hurricane Wilma to
use extra caution when hiring
workers to help clean up the
damage caused by the storm.
In particular, Crist warned
those who are victims of wa-
ter damage and downed trees
to be alert for contractors
who offer water removal or
cleanup services for homes
and property.
With many residents in the
southern portions of Florida
facing significant cleanup, it
is likely that legitimate con-
tractors will be mixed with
those seeking to profit at the
expense of storm victims.
Consumers face the risk that
services will be offered by
those who are not licensed,
that clean-up services will
be offered at unconscionably
high prices, or that so-called
"contractors" will accept
down payments but will not
do the work at all.
Crist said his office is pre-
pared to investigate com-
plaints of alleged price goug-
ing, and said citizens should
call his Price Gouging Hot-
line at (866) 9-NO-SCAM
((866) 966-7226) to file such
complaints. .
"I fully support a business'
right to make a profit, but we
cannot accept unjust profi-
teering, especially when it
puts an extra burden on citi-
zens who have just' endured
a significant hurricane,". said

Crist. "Floridians affected by
Hurricane Wilma will need all
the help they can get, and we
will do our part by making
sure price gouging is not in
the equation."
Helpful tips
Crist provided a series of
guidelines for consumers to
protect themselves from un-
scrupulous contractors, in-
cluding:
Before signing a contract,
check the payment terms
and other provisions careful-
ly. Don't pay a contractor in
advance.
Do not pay cash to home
repair contractors or tree re-
moval services.
Require home repair
contractors to obtain all nec-
essary government licenses
and permits, rather than
leaving that burden .on the,
consumer.
Make sure contractors
have proper occupational
licenses as required by state
law.
Work only with reputa-
ble, established businesses.
Avoid "contractors" who
knock on your door offering
to fix your roof or windows.
Try to obtain .more than one

MCC advertising



to boost enrollment


Flat enrollments cause Manatee Community
College to embark on a recruitment campaign
that also targets Hispanics and blacks.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Flat enrollments have sent
Manatee Community College
on a recruiting mission. And
it appears to be-working, say
MCC officials
TV ads depicting "future
success stories" at MCC ran
for six weeks this summer on
ABC-7, SNN-6, Bay News 9
and other cable TV channels
on Comcast and BrightHouse.
Additional media cam-
paigns are currently under
way in newspapers, radio
and the Internet. Ad place-
ments include nine area
publications (including three
Spanish), local radio (includ-
ing Spanish), online at mccfl.
edu/success, which includes
all eight TV spots and extend-
ed interviews, and stadium-
seating theaters in Sarasota
and Bradenton starting in
November.
Bucking the trend
Enrollment at Florida's
community colleges has been
trending downward recently,
as typically happens when
the job market is tight. As
part of this trend, MCC's
enrollment has slowed some-
what.
In the last three years,
MCC charted 5.7 percent, 8.6
percent and 7 percent enroll-
ment growth.
This fall, MCC's enrollment
grew 2.82 percent over fall
2004, in part due to the ad
campaign.
This percentage increase
placed MCC in the fifth-high-
est growth position among
all Florida community col-
leges, Walker said. Of the 28
community colleges, 15 ex-
perienced a decline in fall
2005 over fall 2004. Another
five colleges had less than 1
percent growth.

ward trend to achieve nearly
3 percent growth this fall at
MCC," said Kathy Walker,
director of public affairs and
marketing, who coordinated
the campaign.
Testimonials rule
The ads are based on per-
sonal testimonials by MCC
graduates. In the advertising
world, personal testimonials
are most compelling, Walker
said.

"By their examples, the
eight recent MCC grad-
uates are saying to
prospective students,
'If I did it, you can do it,
too'."

Kathy Walker,
MCC spokeswoman
"By their examples, the
eight recent MCC graduates
are saying to prospective
students, 'If I did it, you can
do it, too.' This can make a
key difference to the first-
generation-in-college person
who does not get support
from the family and/or whose
culture does not place as
much importance on educa-
tion," Walker said.
"Ours is not a single-niche
market because as a com-
munity college we are both
the first choice of those who
could go elsewhere and come
to MCC because of the quality
of instruction, as well as the
only choice of those who
have no other options," Walk-
er said.
MCC spent $55,000 to
place TV ads July and August
2005, in addition to $25,000
in production costs. The
campaign will be paid for
over the next three years,
Walker said.
This year's ad campaign,
the first major campaign in


three years, doesn't look like
past campaigns. College offi-
cials looked to their own stu-
dent body for success stories.
"It's different than what
we normally do. In the past
we've used models who
closely represent students at
the college. Usually you have
to use people who can handle
that media setting. But our
experience shows it has not
be unusual for us to find the
models at the college. That
worked out nicely for us.
"We made a conscious de-
cision to use real graduates.
We wanted that authenticity.
We were ready to trade off
the smooth delivery for that.
Even confident young people
can be flustered in front of
the camera, but it worked
out well. We felt it was a
worthwhile trade off.

Tomas' story
Tomas C., one of the eight
profiled, is a young, male
Hispanic from a .family that
works the fields. He gradu-
ated in May from MCC with
a criminal justice degree. He's
planning to attend the police
academy and eventually to
work as a sheriff.
His goal is to get a job that
would pay enough to per-
suade his mother and sisters
to also leave migrant field
work, where his father is a
crew boss.
"I wanted my family to
have a better life, a better
career. Have that American
dream," Tomas says in the
TVspot.
"Even on the day he grad-
uated, this young man went
out on the fields and worked
with his family so they could
meet their quota in time to
make it to his graduation,"
Walker said. "His parents are
inordinately proud of him,
as they should be."
"It was truly an honor
working with these individu-
als," she said.

Walker hopes the testimo-
nials will get MCC's foot in

Council incumbent breaks leg


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice City Council mem-
ber Rick Tacy remains hospi-
talized with a spiral fracture
of his right leg, and may not
be released for another
week.
Tacy, elected to a council
vacancy in 2000, is up for re-
election Nov. 8; his challenger
is Gary Anderson.
'Tacy is the second-longest
tenured sitting council mem-
ber, with only Mayor Dean
Calamaras serving more
years.
The injury caused Tacy to
miss Tuesday's city council
meeting, and most likely will
keep him bed-ridden through
Election Day. He was sched-
uled to debate Anderson in
the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce candidates forum
at 5:30 p.m. today. As a result
of Tacy's injury the forum has
been canceled. It will not be
rescheduled.
"Well, if anyone needs to
do an endorsement inter-
view, they're going to have to
come to me," Tacy said with
a chuckle from his Venice
Regional Medical Center bed.


the door of prospective stu-
dents. One of MCC's entice-
ments is its record on pro-
viding financial aid.
"Most students think, 'I
don't qualify,' and they don't
apply for scholarships and
financial aid," said Dr. Don-
ald Bowman, vice president
of student development and
enrollment services. "The
fact is, most do."
The total financial aid
awarded for 2004-05 was
$22.9 million for 5,650 stu-
dents. Many students re-
ceived multiple grants. In all,
12,335 grants were awarded,
with the average student
awarded $4,070.


A 1979 diving accident left
Tacy a C-5/C-6 quadriplegic,
with no
feeling below
his shoulders
and only lim-
.. .. ited use of his
arms. Tacy
uses a motor-
ized wheel-
chair and a
Tacy specially
adapted con-
version van as transporta-
tion.
The injury happened Mon-
day while Tacy's assistant
moved him from his bed to a
shower chair. The chair be-
gan to scoot out from under
Tacy, and the break happened
when the assistant set Tacy
on the floor without realizing
all of his body weight was on
his right femur.
Tacy emphasized his assis-
tant did not drop him.
Despite the severity of the
break, Tacy felt no pain
because of the paralysis.
"I'm feeling fine," Tacy said.
"That's one of the advantages
of being a quadriplegic no
pain. But, that's also one of
the disadvantages, you feel


Stafford loans accounted
for almost half the total fi-
nancial aid. Pell grants and
FSEOG grants accounted for
$8.7 million; MCC and com-
munity scholarships ac-
counted for another $1.2
million. Other grants came
from federal work study,
Florida Bright Futures schol-
arships, Florida student as-
sistance grants and MCC
Foundation scholarships.
Tuition for one year at
MCC, including books,
comes to around $2,600.

It's nice to clinch a playoff
berth and have the following
week off.
Venice High football coach
Nick Coleman and his staff
have the luxury of relaxing a
little this week, as the Indians
are off Friday night.
In fact, it will give the
Indian staff and excellent
opportunity to check the first-
round opponent in the
upcoming regional playoffs.
Venice will travel to Fort
Myers High on Friday, Nov.
11.
Coleman will be down in
Lee County Friday, checking
out the Green Wave as they
entertain rival North Fort
Myers.
Fort Myers High, ranked
No. 3 in 5A, is a perfect 9-0
overall and 3-0 in District 12.
North Fort Myers is 5-3.
Venice and Fort Myers
have one common opponent
- Charlotte. Fort Myers
defeated the Tarpons 28-7,
while Venice shaded.
Charlotte 20-13. ,
The closest game for Fort
Myers this year was Mariner
(28-21).
Fort Myers defeated
Naples, 35-21. Venice comes
back from its week off with a
Nov. 4 home game against
Naples.
Fort Myers is a running
team. The Wave have two
dangerous running backs -
Jamaul Temple 979 yards, 12


TDs) and Sergio Rivera (782
yards, 15 TDs). The leading
tackler and sack master -
defensive end Bo Banks is
also the leading receiver on
theWave.

The weekly award winners
were announced at Tuesday's
Linebacker Club luncheon at
Buffalo Bill's at Holiday Inn..
The Offensive Player of the
Week was Tony Charles, who
romped for 270 yards in the
35-21 playoff clinching win
over Lakewood Ranch last
Thursday.
Charles, who has 1,111
yards this season, has been
getting letters from a lot of
football powers including the
likes of Alabama and Georgia.
Right now either South
Carolina or South Florida
look like the best offers.
Charles will do visits after the
season.
The Defensive Player of the
Week is sophomore corner-
back/running back Jimmy
Laurie. His pass coverage has
been improving week by
week. He made a lot of late
breakups during crunch time
at the Ranch.
Special Teams Player of the
Week is senior Aaron Tate.
Tate is also a backup quarter-
backwho plans to take his tal-
ents to Dodge City Com-
munity College in Kansas.
The Rudy Award for
Practice Player of the Week
went to Stephen Crain, a
junior varsity receiver/defen-
sive back.

Death penalty for slow play?


Sometimes it's hard to for-
get that golf is just a game. A
mere two days ago this story
started showing up on news
sites. It seems that an Orange
County, California, Sheriff's
Reserve Deputy had his own
solution for slow play. He
pulled his gun and threat-
ened the twosome in front of
him. This incident happened
in July at the -Los Serranos
Golf & Country Club, but is
just now beginning to surface.
RaymondYi, 44, reportedly
hit into the twosome twice
before he decided to go with
more club. The third time, Yi
hit a ball at the pair, one of the
men, Marcelo Bautista, 35,
who also happens to be a
teacher, hit the ball back at
Mr.Yi.
Apparently this enraged
the part-time cop into think-
ing that pulling his gun and
flashing his badge was better
than asking to play through.
He reportedly aimed the wea-
pon at Bautista's head and
cocked the trigger. The older
gentleman playing with Bau-
tista, Gustavo Resendiz, 61,
was quoted as saying he

thought they were going to be
killed right there on the golf
course.
Yi has been charged with
two counts of assault with a
firearm and two counts of
making criminal threats. Yi
had better get used to stand-
ing in line, because there's no
playing through at the Gray
Bar Golf and Weight Lifting
Complex, where he'll serve
his sentence.
And now it's time for a joke.


After a particularly poor
game of golf, a popular club
member skipped the club-
house and started to go home.
As he was walking to the park-
ing lot to get his car, a police-
man stopped him and asked,
"Did you tee off on the 16th
hole about 20 minutes ago?"
"Yes," the golfer responded.
"Did you happen to hook
your ball so that it went over
the trees and off the course?"
"Yes, I did. How did you
know?" he asked.
"Well," said the policeman
very seriously, "your ball flew
out onto the highway and
crashed through a driver's
windshield. The car went out
of control, crashing into five
other cars and a fire truck.
The fire truck couldn't make it
to the fire, and the building
burned down. So, what are
you going to do about it?"
The golfer thought it over
carefully and responded...
"I think I'll close my stance
a little bit, tighten my grip and
lower my right thumb."

Sarasota County voters are

Residents can vote at the

and at the county adminis-
tration center, 1600 Ringling
Blvd. in .Sarasota, until Elec-

One ballot question, if ap-
proved, would extend a 0.25
mill rate (about $50 a year for
property with a taxable, value
of $200,000) for 10 years, to


2029. The second gives the
county bonding authority to
raise up to $250 million to
buy more land.
Edward H. Freeman, inter-
im program director for
Southwest Florida of The
Nature Conservancy, in re-
marks to the Nokomis Area

urged his audience to vote

He cited eight previous

he told the Nokomis organ-

Ten percent of the 0.25 mill

maintain the acquired land.
The Nature Conservancy
acts as acquisition agents for
the county. It helps locate
available land, contacts own-
ers, hires appraisers and ne-
gotiates land purchases.
'A 'yes' vote on the two
questions on Nov. 8 will permit

said Freeman. "Builders, devel-

that objective."


Developer still pursuing Flying Bridge rezone


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Thomas G. Whealey is a
determined man. He just
won't quit in his effort to get
Sarasota County to approve
his petition to rezone the for-
mer Flying Bridge restaurant
property.
Early last spring, Whealey's
Valencia Development Com-
pany filed a petition to rezone
the 2.38-acre Flying Bridge site
from commercial marine to
residential single-family with
a marine park. That would'
have allowed the company to
develop a $32 million luxury
condominium community."
The county commission's
2-2 vote denied the petition


in April. A later request by
Valencia to reopen the matter
: was also denied by the com-
mission.
In June, Valencia filed a
writ of mediation to compel
the county to negotiate the
rezoning of the property. Two
days later, the company filed
suit against the county in the'
12th Circuit Court.
The mediation effort took
a full day last month. Neither
side budged. Valencia has
since asked the county to re-
;convene for mediation, which
is carried out before an impar-
tial individual and includes
testimony by sworn witnesses.
Valencia, according to
Whealey, has been working
with county staff for months


considering other approaches.
"We really do not want to
walk away from our project,
especially when county staff
has been so supportive,"
Whealey said.

An option
One suggestion 'by the
company was to go forward
without rezoning, retaining
commercial marine. The
county's initial resistance was
based on its concern that
the proposed development
would reduce public access
to the waterfront.
Commercial marine per-
mits mixed-use development,
according to Whealey. The
site could include private resi-
dences, retail businesses and


boating supplies vendors.
Whealey cited the propos-
ed Bay Street Village in Osprey
as an example of mixed-use
development. He recalled that
the conmtission had endorsed
that project unanimously.
In July., Sarasota County.
Zoning Administrator Mary
Beth Humphreys rejected the
revised proposal. Valencia
then submitted a revised pe-
tition to the county zoning
board of appeals. That body
voted 6-0 in support of the
Valencia proposal.
A month later, on Oct. 15,
the county commission ap-.
pealed the Zoning Board deci-
sion. Valencia filed an amend-
ed site plan on Oct. 21.
"We're not giving up on,


our development program,"
Whealey insisted. "We contin-
ue to think it's a good plan,
and support for it by the Os-
prey community has never
stopped."

Big money?
The original petition called
for building 14 luxury town-
-houses in three three-story
buildings overlooking the
Intracoastal Waterway at the
Blackburn Point Road bridge.
Forty-six deep-water boat
slips and 19 covered ones for
homeowners and for sale to
the public were included in
the original petition. Since
then, Valencia mAde five of the
slips available for rental to the
public.


A boat basin shared with
the abutting Bellagio Harbor
Village and upgraded public
facilities along a waterway to
the marine park they share
were also included. The two
developments planned to
dredge the basin leading to
the waterway.
In recent weeks, neighbors
along Blackburn Point Road
and a Realtor who did not
want to be named have sug-
gested that Valencia may give
up,. and sell the property.
Whealey has denied that the
2.38-site is for sale.
But, as the logjam contin-
ues, Valencia may find 'it
more difficult to resist what an
Osprey Realtor described as
"very big money."

OUR VIEW




Patience and preparation prevented panic


T he experience and lessons learned
from Hurricane Charley indeed,
from all of our recent hurricane en-
counters paid off Monday.
Granted, Hurricane Wilma did not make a
direct hit on Sarasota, Charlotte or DeSoto
counties. The winds were not as strong and the
rain while close'- was not as severe. In
Florida, Naples, Cape Coral and Fort Myers got
the worst of Wilma, no doubt, and our sympa-
thies go out to their residents and all those who
were affected by this record-breaking storm.
Still, we have to think the experience of
Hurricane Charley paid off in preparing for
Wilma and the process through which


people were bouncing back to almost nor-
mal lives, just hours after the wind gusts died
down and the skies began to clear Monday.
We knewwhat to do. We knewwhere to go.
We knew, pretty much, what to expect.
The counties took steps in the days lead-
ing up to the storm to open shelters, or safe
havens. Those in charge were impressed how
orderly and prepared everyone was. People
knew what to bring, and they were ready for
the long haul, if needed.
School districts in the area rate high scores
for their response. None panicked Friday and
closed schools indicative of their close
attention to the storm's progress and com-


munication with emergency management
officials. All three districts did, of course,
close schools Monday :
All three coun ties were well prepared for
any emergency response that was needed.
Police were drilled and ready to do their duty;
city and county crews were on call for clean-
up and emergency response; and elected.
officials were in touch with their staffs and, as
far as we can tell, ready to respond with
whatever resources would be needed.
In the next few days we will learn if other
private agencies were as well prepared,
Florida Power and Light will be under the
gun to return electricity, since much of the


help that was available last year has been
siphoned off by twin hurricane catastrophes
in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Comcast Cable will surely be under scruti-
ny to see how long it takes to get cable service
returned to customers.
And, of course, the Federal Emergency
Management Agency the target of critics
during Hurricanes Rita and Katrina will be
under the microscope.
All in all, however, we seemed to have
learned our lesson from Hurricane Charley.
Kudos to emergency personnel, government
staffs and just plain folks who were ready and
waiting for Wilma's best punch.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


We need places to go and wa)


Editor:
Hurricane? Evacuate! Mandatory!
Where to? Shelter! Simple! What shelter the brick school
in the swamp (Taylor Ranch: below sea level, roof may peel
off)? Facilities? Don't trust it.
1-75! How fast does traffic gb, 15 mph? How fast does hurri-
cane go? 25 mph! North? South? East? West?
Devastated and poor already? Got no car, or no gasoline?
Take bicycle, wheelchair!
Evacuation mandatory to save lives. What lives? No pets!
How about hospital? Will put patients on bus. School bus
not available, driver got hit by student or is "moving" on 1-75 up
north! 9-1-1 shut down. Police gone. FEMA- how do you spell
that?
Homeland Security will organize volunteers with green
hardhats and first-aid backpacks authorized to look for domes-
tic terrorists, like they told the South Venice Civic Association
meeting.
How about a war on hurricanes? What happened to HARP
and the practical rain-cloud seeding? United Nations is said to
have banned military weather modification.
Vote for a leadership that would/could help. Vote how?What
party leadership? It's like a bad American dream! But when I
wake up it's still there. I pick up the proverbial American self-
motivation and now the sun shines again!
America's 3 million square miles give me a 99.99 percent
chance to protect myself someplace else.
I just read and was prompted by the Venice Gondolier Sun
editorial: "The best place to be is where the hurricane isn't."

Land program
deserves renewal

Editor:
I congratulate the Sarasota
County voters of 1999 who
approved a bond issue to pro-
tect environmentally sensi-
tive land. The program has
been an enormous success,
resulting in the acquisition of
more than 16,000 acres at an
average cost to the taxpayer of
about $50 per year.
On Nov. 8 there will be a spe-
cial election in Sarasota County
with two closely related mea-
sures vital to this program.
These will be the only county-
wide items on the ballot
These measures will en-
sure the aggressive imple-


mentation of land acquisition
and protection, and expand
the types of properties that
can be acquired, all of this ,at
no increase in annual cost to
the taxpayer.
In recent months we have
all been bombarded with
requests for extremely worthy
causes around the globe. This
is one in our own back yard
where there is no donation
required, no increase in your
annual tax bill and that will
result in a better Sarasota
County, a better environment
and a better quality of life for
our grandchildren and
theirs.
I urge you to vote "Yes" on
both measures on Nov. 8.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! DID YOU EVACUATE FOR HURRICANE

WILMA? CALL US AT 2071111.


Maybe they don't want competition


It all depends. In a recent letter to the editor, Jack Myerhoff
claimed that downtown Venice merchants he interviewed sup-
port the CMU project, but were afraid to say so because they
fear reprisals from the anti-growth faction. Maybe the mer-
chants are supportive, maybe they aren't. We all know the
answer all depends on how you ask the question, whom you
ask and how you interpret the answer. I bet one thing is certain:
If downtown merchants were asked whether they want a
gallery of new shops selling jewelry, women's clothes, shoes,
souvenirs, etc., as Mike Miller's proposing, they would likely
say that they are barely eking out a living now without having
increased competition right across U.S. 41 Business.


Not right. The president
has asked all Americans to
curtail their use of gasoline by
shortening their drives and
yet he flies that 747 from
Washington, D.C., to Texas
and Louisiana once a week.
Something is not right there.
Don't blame me. About
politicians constantly telling
me to conserve gas: I do not
have an SUV so I think I do
conserve gas compared with
most Americans. Politicians
standing on the side of the
freeway counting cars with
only one person because
most of our jobs have left the
country, I have to travel across
the county to work, then I go
to the gym. The chances of
finding someone that works
in my building and goes to the
same gym are nil. Our politi-
cians have to realize that this
is not the 1950s. We do not all
live in the same neighbor-
hood and go to the same fac-
tory to work. We need to find
some alternative ways to fuel
our. cars and heat and air con-
dition our houses. I've been
hearing about this for 40 years
now and our politicians
haven't done a thing about it.
If these SUVs are an issue,
well, they shouldn't let so
many SUVs be imported, and
also maybe put a limit on the
number of SUVs that could be
produced in this country.
Don't blame me. Blame the
politicians and the head guy
in charge of the oil compa-
nies. Without us they couldn't
be making their millions per
quarter.
Get on with it. The affair on
'Aruba over the Holloway fam-
ily was very tragic. They must
have earned enough gold
points for an Oscar now with
all their performances on TV,
and the island is already-
ruined. Now, all the books
that they plan to write and
make millions are probably
already on the press. Maybe
the girl wasn't as innocent as
everybody thought at first.
Let's get on with some sad
family happenings in our own
country. Let's get something
different on TV.
Adhere to disclaimer. I
don't understand the dis-
claimer in this column. You
say you won't take calls that
are offensive, you won't take
calls that are politically im-
prudent. And yet immediately
I see some liberal person calls
in and says the vice president
doesn't do anything, he's a
waste of time. Those kind of
comments are inappropriate.
I don't know of any Repub-
lican or any conservative per-
son that called in and said the
same thing about Gore. I


think the position of vice
president is a part of our polit-
ical system. He's there in case
our president can't serve, and
then he would take over and
he's in the background of
most political events. You
consistently print a lot of lib-
eral expressions in your paper
and yet your disclaimer says
you won't print that kind of
stuff. It separates the good
people in this town who have
to endure that.
These people who call in
are simply critical of the pres-
ident and current administra-
tion. I wish you just wouldn't
print that kind of trash. I wish
you'd adhere to your dis-
claimer.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The com-

Expensive parking. Unless
my figures are wrong, Venice
is spending about $23,000 on
each new parking space at the
beach. Not a comment about
it in Let'em have it. Even for
Venice this seems exorbitant.
The real story. Regarding
Tommy McIntyre's, recent
series on his cancer treatment
experience, I am pleased to
hear his cancer is under con-
trol and he found the system
so positive. I wonder, howev-
er, if he were not a well-
known journalist with good'
health insurance if he would
feel the same way. The real
story is that the cancer indus-
try in Florida is largely unreg-
ulated, making a number of
people very rich at the ex-
pense of traumatized and suf-
fering patients. Those without
any, or adequate, insurance
,are turned away by the private
practitioners and must go to
the public hospital. They
probably fare better than their
insured counterparts. Some
private offices, with no regu-
lation, herd patients into large
rooms like so many cattle,
hook them up to chemo with
no privacy in often-inade-
quate sanitary conditions.
Their drugs are mixed by un-
trained personnel with no
supervision by registered


pharmacists. The real story
would have been an expose of
this shameful system. But I
guess that's too much to ask
from the "good news" local
newspaper.
Where's the money? The
Red Cross got caught with
their hand in the cookie jar
after Sept. 11. Now I would
like to know where are all
these millions of dollars that
were donated to the Red
Cross going? Have they dis-
bursed the money? Did they
keep it? What? Who is sup-
posed to investigate? Soine-
body should, to make sure.
Government spending. I
was wondering with all the
money that people have
donated to the Red Cross,
doesn't that kind of save
money from the government
spending?
Blighted areas. Driving
down the city-labeled blight-
ed Seaboard Avenue, there are
no vacancies, all the business-
es are open. But driving down
U.S. 41 Business, there's a
bulldozed gas station at Turin
Street. Across the street there's
a closed-up Chinese restau-
rant. On Miami Avenue and
U.S. 41 Business, there's a'
closed garage. There's a
closed, boarded up restaurant
on Nokomis Avenue and Mi-
ami. There is a gutted conve-
nience store that is just sitting
there and is an eyesore. Per-
haps city council needs to
look at the blighted areas on
U.S. 41 Business.
Goes both ways. I hope you
don't consider this a personal
attack, but Lorraine Coccaro's
column about the Repub-
licans with their patronage
took almost a quarter page to
write. All she has to do is look
at what happened in Chicago
for the last 120-some years
with the Democrats giving
out patronage jobs to every-
body in their party. This is a
two-way street, not a one-way
street.
Move inland. The letter to
the editor from Sept. 30,
insinuating that something
rotten is going on is ludicrous.
I'm sure city officials consid-
ered the facts and made wise
decisions. Comparing Water-
front on the Island to Konec-
nik's project is like comparing
orange to apples. The Water-
front has added charm with
its excellent architecture and
lighting and is nestled in by
the bridge. Parking has always
been a problem. .Maybe the
writer should have moved
inland where there are plenty
of opf a spaces. Also, the
Waterfront cleared the area of
unsightly structures, adding
to the beauty of Venice.

Growth is a function of individual rights


JIM CLINCH
GUEST (OLIIMNISI


An astute Gondolier Sun
reader recently wrote in and
denounced me for trying to
"ruin" Venice.
Curses! My evil plan has
been exposed. I was schem-
ing with Haliburton and the
Boone law firm to turn Venice
into Newark on the Gulf.
Actually, before I shave my
head like Lex Luthor or Dr.
Evil, let me elucidate, as un-
ambiguously as possible, my
position. That way those
whom I outrage can respond
with greater specificity.
I believe respect for private
property is the measure of a
free society. Government reg-
ulation is necessary, but
should be judicious and im-
pose the least possible restric-
tion on an owner's right to
buy, sell or build on his or her
property.
I believe free people should
be able to live where they
want. Telling prospective new
residents, "Sorry, we're full," is

and eventual height limits on
U.S. 41 Business.
John Moore feels that
council should move ahead to
approve the U.S. 41 Business
architectural design \ overlay
district. After that approval,
he supports eliminating that
district from future CMU des-
ignation, a view that a majori-
ty of members seem to share.
Moore also favors limiting
heights along the U.S. 41 Busi-
ness corridor in the overlay dis-
trict after its initial approval. It is
possible to allow the underly-
ing zoning limits on heights by
right, as has been done on East
Venice Avenue, which would
limit heights to a maximum of
'45 feet.
Vicky Taylor sees 45 feet as
allowing a variety of desirable
buildings, but also recognizes
the value of flexibility. She
said she feels council does not
want to see the kinds of
heights previously approved
in Venice.
Taylor feels that council
members will consider, care-
fully, the decisions facing
them in the CMU matter and
along U.S. 41 Business with
sensitivity to preserving the
nature of the city.

dent of Venice since 1994, is

selfish and un-American.
I believe tall buildings do
not repeat, do not be-
long in the historic downtown
business district, or along the
beach or in residential neigh-
borhoods. The city of Venice
should, and already does,
restrict this. .
I believe there are some
commercial areas, including
the proposed Waterfront de-
velopment, where taller
buildings make sense. Let the
owner build and let the new
residents and businesses
move in.
I believe in representative
government. Our city council
needs the freedom to act. No
future zoning or overlay dis-
tricts should unreasonably tie
their hands.
I firmly believe, with very
few exceptions, that the peo-
ple voicing opposition to
height or mixed-use zoning
are really against any new
development of any kind.
When it comes to property
rights most wouldn't know
John,Locke from June Lock-
hart. They just want less traf-
fic and a shorter line at the
Publix deli.
I don't like traffic jams and
crowded grocery stores either,
but in a free country people
get to live where they want
and sometimes that creates
hassles.
Sadly, there are some self-
ish Venetians who don't care
about trampling on some-


body else's rights if they think
it will speed up the process of
getting their quarter-pound
of Dutch loaf.
I believe recent letters and
columns in support of the
Waterfront development and
the CMU zoning are long
overdue. Public debate is
good. The anti-growth crowd
dominated the issue in the
past not because they repre-
sent a clear majority but
because they are the ones
with the free time to call, write
and attend meetings.
Less government interven-
tion in our lives is a good
thing. It is a good thing, for
example, that you don't need
a passport to go from Cal-
ifornia to Georgia. Neither do
you need official government
permission to move from
NewYork to Florida and, once
here, buy a house or a condo-
minium.
Yes, this population growth
strains our resources, our
infrastructure and our
patience. The solution, how-
ever, is not to unreasonably
limit somebody else's rights.

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

Investors should keep in mind that as interest rates
rise existing bond prices of already-outstanding fixed-

Woman Sheds 35 LBS. and Says...GOOD-BYE FAT





"HELLO SIZE 4"


My name is Carrie. The story you
are about to read is true and
factual. It happened to me.

I LOST 35 POUNDS
I went from a size 12 to a size 4. My friends
and family are amazed not only at the weight
loss, but also the confidence. Hypnosis kept me
on track. My appearance improved, now I feel
beautiful, happy, proud and thankful. Hypnosis
works for me.
I'm a diet veteran. I've been the victim of every
diet routine on the market. Liquid diets and special
food programs, I tried them all. All failed me. I was
embarrassed and self-conscious about my weight. I
didn't want to be overweight, but I was...

OUT OF CONTROL
When you want to lose weight but can't...When
you're eating something you know is making you
fat, but you still eat it...You try and fail...You have
to ask yourself, "Why?" ARE YOU OUT OF
CONTROL?
If you're overweight, I'm sure you're no stranger
to feeling out of control. A helpless feeling you get
when craving turn into uncontrollable urges. You
may rationalize, but deep down you know the truth.
The more you try to lose weight the more you think
about food. And so it goes. You're forever trapped
on the diet merry-go-round. Take a little off. Put
more back on. One diet after another. Pain,
suffering, misery. Being overweight hurts.

STOP THE PAIN
I had seen these ads in the newspaper for months.
I gave them a call, went in, discussed my problem,
signed up and lost 35 pounds. Hypnosis gave me
-back control. I came to grips with my weight loss
problem and this program deserves 100% of the
credit.

MY DISCOVERY
People ask me what hypnosis is really like. Does
it work? Many folks tell me they think they can't be
hypnotized!
Most everyone can enjoy, the benefits of hypnosis,
has to offer. Yes, you can be hypnotized. Hypnosis is
safe, natural and feels like being awake during a
pleasant dream.
Yes, Yes, Yes, it works. I'm living proof that
hypnosis weight loss programs get real and genuine
results. It will work for you.

AUTOMATIC WEIGHT LOSS
Immediately after my first hypnosis session I
experienced a gradual change. I stopped thinking of
food all the time. My craving for donuts, cakes and
pies disappeared. My food choices changed. I found
myself eating less but feeling content, full and
satisfied.
This wasn't something I had to work at. I never
once felt deprived. A friend recently asked me,
"Was it easy staying motivated?" I never even
considered it. All 35 pounds of my weight loss was
automatic. You don't even think about it. Hypnosis
wiped my poor eating habits away like a damp cloth
wipes away chalk on a chalkboard. A gentle stroke
and the problem was gone. That easy. Call today,
941-625-6455 or 239-334-6727 for the,..

ABSOLUTE SOLUTION
This program have me the absolute weight loss
solution I have been searching for. I now eat what I
want and HAVEN'T GAINED AN OUNCE SINCE
HYPNOSIS.


I'm so convinced my
results are permanent I
gave away all my size 10
clothes. My wardrobe is,
new. I love wearing dresses
and suits. Now I buy
clothes that flatter my new
figure instead of trying to
conceal it.

CONCRETE
PROOF
The use of hypnosis is sweeping the nation. Valid,
medically approved, clinically tested and proven
effective. Here are the facts.
No dangers have ever been linked to hypnosis.
FBI, armed forces, police, businesses and
professional sports teams use hypnosis.

DREAMS COME TRUE
I started with SunCoast Hypnosis the last week of April 2004 and since February
2005, I have taken off, and kept off 60 pounds. Even during the many hurricanes of
2004 that caused stress, I found myself not binge eating, but doing more relaxing
things, like reading and painting my condo. My energy level, as well as my self-
esteem has risen greatly. The great comments from friends that I have known for
years, but haven't seen in a while, also is evidence that this is a very successful
program.
Luke, Fort Myers
I have lost 41 pounds as of today! I have never'felt deprived and I do not want the
things I used to eat. I did not even want a piece of my own birthday cake! This
Works!
Sue'Anne Mandella, Lehigh
I feel that this program has helped me to lose 25 lbs. and gain confidence in myself,
and know that I can do it!
Maureen, North Port
I have thoroughly gotten over all urges to have SWEETS! When I go to Wal-Mart I
won't even look towards the bakery or candy aisles (they used to be my favorites). I
also want to do more exercises and I feel better about my appearance. This is
great!!
Linda Sherman, Ft. Myers
I lost 8 pounds in 3 1/2 weeks, losing it was easy, I do not feel like I have been
dieting I have changed my eating habits I
Joann, Cape Coral
"I had been dealing with weight issues most of my adult life. I noticed my brother
having dropped weight (60 pounds) and asked him what was he doing? He said he
was attending Suncoast Hypnosis, so I followed and I am dropping inches. Now I
will use to maintain my weight!
Barbara Jackson, Ft. Myers
I feel really great! I have lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I have not had ice cream for 2
weeks. It takes less to fill me up. I am sleeping much better!
Linds, Cape Coral
I attended a birthday party for my boss catered by Honey Baked Ham, and of
course they had cookies and birthday cake too. I sat and watched everyone eat the
sweets and had no desire to even taste a thing! I lost 15 pounds in my first month of
trying hypnosis. This is the easiest weight loss I've ever done.
Sue Anne Mondella, Lehigh
I' have lost 10 pounds and 4 inches in less than 4 weeks! A positive experience.

Readers provide information on scams
-A- fo


I regularly receive letters,
phone calls, faxes and e-mails
from folks who wish to share
information they have on con
games, frauds, scams and,
related larcenies. What they
offer may prevent folks from
falling prey to these perpetra-
tors in the future.
You may recognize some
of the material contained
herein from past exposure,
and some may be new to you.
As I've stated in past Crime


Scene columns, "Reinforce-
ment is critical in crime pre-
vention."
The jury scam
This con game first sur-
faced in 1994 and, like a bad
penny, it is back again.
You receive a phone call
from someone posing as a
court official stating that a
warrant has or will be issued
for your arrest for not report-
ing for jury duty. You reply
that you were never notified
to appear. The imposter indi-
cates that a mistake could
have been made and he or
she will try to have the war-
rant rescinded.
However, in order to do so
they need some information.
You are asked to supply sensi-
tive confidential information
such as your Social Security
number, date of birth, home
address, mother's maiden
name, bank account or credit
card numbers.
Should you comply with


the request, you will become
vulnerable to the crime of
identity theft. Be advised that
no court official will ask for
the information stated above,
and people do not usually go
to jail for avoiding jury duty.
There are other options avail-
able to the criminal justice
system to ensure compliance.
Should you receive such a
call, hang up and notify law
enforcement.
Thanks to the FBI's Public
Information Unit, Chief Tony
Marone of the SRQ Airport
Police, the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office, Lt. Bob Bron-
gel of the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office, and Manasota
and Gulf Coast Police 10-13
members Lou LeBron, Joe
Monteleone and Bill Grey for
supplying the above modus
operandi.
Prescription fraud
This was submitted by Dr.
Richard Swier, president of
the Sarasota County Veterans


Commission.
Veterans are receiving calls
from individuals identifying
themselves as the "Patient
Care Group." They claim that
their prescriptions are now
being dispensed by them,
and if they wish to continue
to receive their medication
they must provide a credit
card number.
This is a despicable at-
tempt to engage in identity
theft and larceny against a
group of individuals who
have given so much to their
country. Do not fall for it!
If you receive such a call,
hang up and contact the fol-
lowing entities:
Local law enforcement.

A new Internet fraud
Thanks to Venice resident


Hugh Pollon for sending this
information from the L.A.
Times.
Hackers and identity thieves
are infecting computers with
sophisticated programs that
record passwords and other
key financial data, and send it
to crooks over the Internet.
Security researchers stum-
bled onto a PC that was har-
vesting information from
hundreds of computers, and
were compelled to make the
information public in order to
alert potential victims.
These "eyelogging" pro-
grams can install themselves
after users open fake e-mails,
instant messages or adver-
tisements on mainstream
Web sites. Once in place they
record everything typed on a
computer or just what is
typed during user visits to
financial sites.
In an alarming develop-
ment, security experts found
a malicious program planted
in PCs that is designed to

Fiesta


moved to


Nov. 11

I have to apologize for the
confusion I may have caused
about the Sun Fiesta.
,As my column goes to
press a day earlier than the
main section of the paper, I
relied on best guesses from
some merchants who, unfor-
tunately, guessed wrong
about the new date after
Hurricane Wilma postponed
the event. Sun Fiesta will be
Nov. 11-13 in Centennial Park
in downtown Venice.
Though I will no longer
assume anything (that is a no-
no for a reporter anyway), my
best guesstimate is that
events such as the famous
bed race will still occur at the
originally scheduled times.
For definitive answers, visit
sunfiesta.net.
And thanks for reading my
column. Judging by the num-
ber of calls my misinforma-
tion spurred, there are more
of you than I thought at
east seven. That means I will
have to bring even more pre-
sents back from my next road

Dr. Meg Lowman of New College holds up a mushroom that appears to have been dined on by either a tu'tle or some other animal.


New College nature walks reveal local area's environmental treasurers.

STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER ...
When Dr. Margaret Low-man caine to i ,
Florida, she was surprised to find out
how much still isn't known about the
biology of native Florida, and how even less is
known about what lives above us.
Lowman, also known as "Canopy Meg," has
been on a crusade to bring more attention to
these areas that she is fascinated by. By exposing
local residents to it, awareness is soon to be wide-
spread.
"It was very surprising to me to discover that
very few scientists had focused on professional
research in the southwest Florida terrestrial
ecosystems." she said. "Perhaps we underes'ti-
mate the value of having a large university for
attracting professional research.


If one's brave enough to climb the tower at Myakka River State Park, then he or she is rewarded
with this incredible view.


Halloween countdown is

And then there is a dog that

"In this case, Sarasota
County has never had a large
university to bring in the
intellectual capital that would
be useful to make observa-
tions and monitory change in
our important natural sys-
tems., It's a, local treasure,"
said Lowman, a professor of
biology and. environmental
studies. "We're getting a
chance to study local things."
Lowman takes students
from her conservation biolo-
gy class from New College out
to several state parks and lets
them educate the public on

"There's a whole treasure
trove of research up there,"
she said.
Lowman studies epiphytes
and other things living up in
the trees. Some examples are
orchids, Spanish moss and
shoelace fern.
According to the Web site
for Myakka River State Park,
the canopy walkway was
inspired by Lowman. After

"Wedo indeed look at all the
insects of the wetlands and sur-

said. "Participants may need to

times it is knee deep in a few

Lowman realized that
Florida's forests were as
imperiled as many of the leg-

forests. Lowman's position
provided an opportunity to
augment current knowledge.

EDUCATED OPINION

We all possess the end

Creativity, in its r
forms, is taking the
materials that are given
in life and creating

their it is a piece of art
unique idea or solution
problem.
Just as children car
taught to think more log
ly, they can also be ins]
to create.
So, why don't some
dren express themse
freely? One reason is
sented by Moshe Fel
krais, who states,. "In f
lies where children
judged primarily by
achievements, all spont
ity will disappear at an
age."
Unrealistic expect
and rigid perfectionism
kill creativity.
Achievement tests are
part of our educat
process these days. Sch
therefore, stress achiever
largely over the important
being creative.
Students are prim
rewarded for coming up
the correct answer to a q
tion (convergent think
rather than offering se
possible solutions to a p
lem (divergent thinking).
Because artistic or cre
expression is not a prior
most of our schools,

necessarily nurture crea
in a child. In fact, it is i
discouraged or include

same manner. It has long
been meant as an equalizer.
Ideally, creative expression
would be given as much
weight as academic .excel-
lence in our school. Since this
is not the case, parents must
help children discover and
Express their individual cre-
ativities.
Parents can do this by
modeling artistic apprecia-
tion and wonder for beauty in
nature, daily. They can take
dow- trips and expose children to
ely. o craft fairs, museums, art gal-
ely. leries, concerts, plays, circus-
nany es, zoos, parks and beautiful
raw beaches.

MCC students perform for relief


BY KAREN JOHNS


Music students from
Manatee Community
College produced a show to
benefit victims of Hurricane
Katrina Sunday, Oct. 2, at 7
p.m. The community
enjoyed marvelous perfor-
mances by the young peo-
ple.
The MCC Jazz Band
opened the show with "St.
Thomas," by Sonny Rollins
and "Footprints," by Wayne
Shorter, under the direction
of Marc Mannino.
The concert continued
with thrilling performances
by soprano Christal
Cashmore, who sang, "I
Could Have Danced All
Night," and another by sopra-
no Megan Wintersteen and
tenor David Cosby, who sang
"The Prayer." Both pieces
were accompanied by Lurray
Myers.
A change of mood came
with alto Ashley Lekov per-
forming "Pearls," by Sade
Adu. Then the audience was
treated to a traditional tango
by guitarist Jon McLaughlin,
and Flamenco dancer Vera
Savany.
After soprano Aimee


Seheult dazzled the audience
with her rendition of "The
Impossible Dream," the audi-
ence was pleasantly surprised
by an original piece, written
by student Bobby Brader. He
played the piano while alto
Maria Zouroudis crooned
"Share Your Love." Drummer
Devin Neel accompanied,
along with horn player Byron
Johns, and guitarists Bradley
Dorrell and Jon McLaughlin.
Another highlight of ihe
show was the Latin music
presented by guitarist ( 'er
Le. The piece was Isaac
Albeniz's classic "Leyenda."
Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'All I
Ask of You" came next, sung
beautifully by soprano
Danielle Wujtowicz and bari-
tone Byron Johns, accompa-
nied by Bobby Brader on the
piano.
A sultry jazz piece followed
by Duke Jordan. Bass player
Chris Cournoyer and pianist
David Cubillos played "Jor
Du" with marimba player,
Devin Neel.
Next, Judy Webb pleased
the audience with the favorite
"Somewhere Over the
Rainbow." Then, mezzo-
soprano Jennifer Wells sur-
prised everyone with a


delightfully enthusiastic ren-
dition of "Gimme, Gimme."
Alto Maggie Jewell and
tenor Kevin Rose brought
laughter to the crowd with
"Sue and Me." "Rain Time"
was another original tune by
student composer Bradley
Dorrill, guitarist.
After alto Laurie Pettit and
soprano Alia Shafie wowed
the audience with "Winter"
by Tori Amos, and 'At Last" by
Etta James, the MCC Concert
Choir finished the concert
with a rousing performance
of "Bridge Over Troubled
Water," by Paul Simon, under
the direction of Melodie
Dickerson.
The concert raised more
than $500, which will be given
to the Red Cross for Katrina
victims.
Future MCC events
include: "Jesus Christ
Superstar" at 8 p.m. on Oct.
28 and 29, and at 2 p.m. on
Oct. 30; flute and guitar con-
cert at 8 p.m. on Nov. 4;
orchestra concert Nov. 15, at 8
p.m.; faculty concert with
guest organist on Nov. 22, at 8

NATURE from page 1B

"Education is most valu-
able when knowledge is
shared, not when it is kept
within," Lowman said. "By
sharing their newfound
knowledge about Florida nat-
ural history, the students
become empowered to do
more community service and
to become better environ--
mental stewards of these
wonderful places."
She began studying
Myakka's treetops with tradi-
tional methods that included
ropes, ladders and pulleys.
Then she devised a plan to
build a walkway through the
treetops, as had been done at
several of her previous
research stations.
By building a canopy walk-
way at a popular state park,
she could not only carry out
Selby's research objectives
but also entrance the general
public with conserving our
planet's forests. Lowman had
seen the declining interest of
students in the sciences.
If teachers could involve
their students in actual
research projects at the walk-
way, not only would valuable
data be gained, but perhaps
the experience could forever
change the way the students
perceived the sciences and
their natural world.
The Myakka Canopy
Walkway provides easy access
to observe life in the treetops
of an oak/palm hammock. As
an outdoor laboratory for
research and education, it is a
place for discovery and
opportunity for visitors to
Myakka to see its canopy
inhabitants up close.
According to the TREE

A conservation biology class from New College, headed by Dr. Meg Lowman, leads visitors to the canopy walk at Myakka River State Park.


Foundation, the walkway is
suspended 25 feet above the
ground and extends 85 feet
through the hammock
canopy. A tower soars 74 feet
in the air to present a spectac-
ular view of treetops, wet-


lands, and the prairie/ham-
mock interface. Visitors can
look down on eagles, hawks,
vultures and other birds in
flight.
"Fifty percent of life on
earth lives in the tops of

trees," Lowman said to a
group at Myakka River State
Park. "We really missed the
mark by having to walk on the
ground."
The walkway proved its
practical value with a shock-,
ing discovery a few months
after it opened. An exotic
weevil from Central America
accidentally released in Ft.
Lauderdale about 1990 had
arrived in southwestern
Florida. Wherever the weevil
invades, it decimates
bromeliads. Myakka is pro-
viding valuable information
that may thwart the weevil.
The Myakka walkway is


the result of a unique partner-
ship among Selby Gardens,
Friends of the Myakka River,
TREE Foundation, and the
Florida Park Service. The
structure was completed and
dedicated in June 2000.
Carlton Reserve
Lowman's next nature walk
will be A Bug's Eye View -
Life Around a Wetland, at
Carlton Reserve, 1800 Mabry
Carlton Parkway, Venice.
Meet outside the ranger's hut
near the main parking area.
Walks are limited to 50 peo-
ple, so call to reserve a space.
If a walk is filled, guests may


choose the next Nature Walk
available. Bring a light jacket,
camera, sturdy shoes, a hat,
sunscreen, bug repellent and
drinking water.
"We do indeed look at all
the insects of the wetlands
and surrounding vegetation,"
Lowman said. "Participants
may need to get their feet wet
since oftentimes it is knee
deep in a few spots when
traveling around this low-
lying Carlton Reserve."
For more information or to
reserve space, call New
College of Florida at 359-4365
and ask about Meg Lowman's
nature walks.

Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
AAJ10 4 3 Q 10643 oQ8 4.7
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 14 Pass
3* Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A If you wonder whether anyone
would bid anything other than three
hearts, so do we, and four hearts
would have been reached. However,
when this deal was played in a world
team championship some years ago,
three no trump became the final con-
tract. Unfortunately, the defenders led
diamonds and took the first six tricks!
Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
AAK105 vA102 0<96.43 ..J 3
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 10 Pass
3* Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A Our choice would be three no
trump. Although you have a pretty
good hand, you bring only three
tricks to the table and, if partner has
nine tricks in hand, he would surely
have found a stronger rebid than
three clubs, which is not forcing.
Q 3 Both vulnerable, you hold:
KQ54 J 109632 094 7
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 1 V Pass
20 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A Partner's reverse is a one-round
force, so it is simply a matter of
whether you should rebid your
weakish six-card heart suit or your
goodish four-card spades. We con-
sider the sixth card in the major suit
as a more important feature than
showing the other major, and there-
fore choose two hearts as our rebid.


48 vAK976 o 73 4KJ954
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 1 c Pass
14 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A If you play fourth-suit forcing,
what better time to employ this gad-
get. If not, jump to three clubs -
your problem could come on the
next round should partner choose to
bid three no trump.
Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
.4QJ109762 v7 oQJ6 4.98
Partner opens the bidding with one
club. What do you respond?
A Our first choice would be a jump
to three spades. That describes the
same type of hand with which you
open three spades, not vulnerable.
Our second choice would be four
spades. We wouldn't consider one
spade because it makes it too easy for
the opponents to enter the auction.
Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you
hold:
J 10 5 cQJ9852 OK 7 6 3
The bidding has proceeded:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
1NT Pass Pass Dbl
24 ?
What action do you take?
A Partner's double of an opening
no trump shows a good hand with a
long suit a holding with which he
thinks he can beat one no trump even
if you bring little or nothing to the
table, After East's bailout, partner's
suit is probably diamonds. Even so
you should bid two hearts and await
developments.

Not a stalker, just a jogger


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK


EDITOR'S NOTE: This Back Of
The Pack column was originally
published Jan. 15, 2005. Hurricane
Wilma kept me cowering indoors,
so look for a new column next
week.

I'm not lingering right
behind you as you run, really.
It just seems that way because
your pace is slightly faster
than mine.
Those were my concerns
last weekend for about a mile
along the Venetian
Intracoastal Waterway trail. A
female jogger came onto the
bike path a short distance
ahead of me, and I felt this
awkward need to speed up


and jog next to her, speed up
even more to pass or slow
down so there was more
space between us.
As it was, my brain wasn't
working quite right nine
miles into a 15-miler, and I
simply wondered about the
proper jogging etiquette until
she stopped for a walk break
and I passed her.
Yet, I was left with the
thought she never wanted to
take a walk break. That was
just her way of getting, some
laboring, heavy-breathing
jogger out from right behind
her.
Perhaps it's the strange
*times we live in creating this
paranoia. I was unconcerned
when a male jogger crossed
my path a couple of days
later.
Of course, I didn't have
enough time to contemplate
the proper course of action.
He passed and had a good
quarter mile on me before I
formed a coherent thought.
The dilemma
Don't know that there's a
manual on proper manners
when coming across opposite
gender joggers. I tried asking


my girlfriend for her opinion,
but she's not a jogger and says
the idea .of getting up at 5:30
a.m. for a 15-mile run "is just
insane."
Guess I'll count on fellow
joggers to offer suggestions.
Speeding up for side-by-
side Wouldn't this look like
I was trying hit on her? And
even more so if I say, "Don't
worry. I'm not hitting on you."
Passing I still had
another six miles to go, and
that pace would've been just a
bit too fast. Besides, is this
inclination inspired by a
woman being faster than me?
Slowing down Hey, I've
got my own training pace to
do here. Should I let my own
paranoia about someone
else's potential paranoia
influence how fast I decide to
run?
Ugh. The social difficulties
of being a jogger. Life is so
much simpler hanging out at
the Back of the Pack.
Back of the Pack is a week-
ly running column appear-
ing every Wednesday. Send

Give your cardiovascular


system a vigorous workout


SOUTH COUNTYYMCA
FITNESS TIPS


Aerobic training exercises
are any activity which
increases your heart rate via
working of the body muscles.
Aerobic exercise strength-
ens the heart and lungs, oth-
erwise called the cardiovas-
cular system. An aerobically
fit individual can work longer,
more vigorously and achieve
a quicker recovery.
Benefits of cardiovascular
training
Increases calorie burn
-Weight loss
Reduces the risk of heart
disease
Increased lung capacity
Reduced blood pressure
Prevents diabetes
Burns body fat -
Increase metabolism
Strengthens the cardio-
vascular system
Strengthens the immune
system
*Lowers stress levels
Workout intensity
Target Heart Rate is the
term used for a person's opti-
mal workout intensity.
The formula that the
YMCA uses to determine tar-
get training zone heart rate is
called the Karvonen Formula.
It calculates your heart rate
reserve range.
To calculate it, take your
pulse for one minute on three
successive mornings upon
waking up. This example is
using the case of a 30-year-
old male whose resting pulse
was 69,70 and 71 for an aver-
age of 70 over the three days.
Calculate target heart rate
by subtracting your age from


220. In this case, 220 30 =
190.
Subtract your average
resting heart rate from target
heart rate. In this case, 190 -
70 = 120.
The lower boundary of the
percentage range is 50 per-
cent of this plus your resting
heart rate [(120 x .5) + 70 =
130]. The higher boundary is
85 percent plus your RHR
[(120 x .85) + 70 =172].
Using the Karvonen
Formula for percentage of
heart rate reserve, this 30-
year-old man should be
working between 130 and 172
BPM. Beginner exercisers
should use a range of 50-75
percent.
Rate of perceived exertion
Don't worry if you don't
have a heart rate monitor, the
Borg scale of perceived exer-
tion is another way of deter-
mining how hard you are
working.
Using your own subjective
Rate of Perceived Exertion
(RPE) on a scale of 6-20 or a
scale of 0-10, you determine
how hard you "feel" you are
working.
The talk test
The talk test is another
good way of establishing how
hard you are working. If you
find it difficult to say a few
words, you are probably
working out anaerobically.
For a good indication of
aerobic exercise, you should
be able to say a few words,
catch your breath, and then
carry on talking.
If you are talking all the
way through your workout,
it's a good bet that you're not


working hard enough.
Workout program
Here's the suggested order
of your workout program.
Warm Up: Stretch after
you warm up if you are going
to do a high-intensity work-
out.
Work Up: Gradually hit
your ideal training zone.
Cool Down: During the
last three to five minutes, slow
the pace down to blood pool-
ing.
Stretch: This helps. pre-
vent tightness.
Cross training
Cross training is when you
use a variety of pieces of
equipment for you exercise
versus using the same piece
of equipment each and every
time you exercise.
These are the benefits:
Avoid overuse Injuries
Prevent boredom with
workouts
The more machines you
know how to use the less
stressed you will be if the
facility is busy and you have
limited options of which
equipment you can use
immediately!
Set yourself up for success
Here are a few success tips:
Exercise with a friend
Exercise with a pet
Set realistic goals
Keep records of progress
Start slowly and gradually
increase
Expect fluctuations in
progress and don't be dis-
couraged
Reward yourself for stick-
ing with your program and
this doesn't have to be food!
