It's been nearly four years since

committees have met.
That meeting drought came to an

Charter school applicant to appeal decision


Challenge Foundation Academy officials claim the school
district doesn't have sufficient grounds to deny its
application.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The' Sarasota County School
Board's recent decision to deny aq
charter school application for
Challenge Foundation Academy is
being appealed. CFA officials say
they sent notice to the school, dis-,
trict Friday.
The case will go before the
Charter School Appeal Commission,
which will make a recommendation
to the Florida State Board of
Education.
The academy's leader Joan Lang
met with attorneys this week and
spoke with fellow charter school


leaders at Thursday's Department of
Education conference on charter
schools in Orlando.
"There's a lot of interest in this
case,", Lang said. "People said we
need to do this. We're going ahead
with the appeal. We've retained an
attorney who served as former
counsel on charter schools for the
Florida Department of Education.
We wanted the best. We wanted
someone with experience. We got
both."
Wrong focus
At the heart of the debate is the
board's decision to deny the CFA
application based on its relationship

with another Venice charter school,
Student Leadership Academy.
The proposed charter would be
housed in the same building as SLA
and share its principal. CFA's pro-
posal was designed to serve grades
Kindergarten through five, with SLA
serving grades six through eight.
Together they create a single K-
eighth grade school, eligible for
nearly $300,000 in state and federal
start-up funds.
School board members say SLA's
rocky start and current financial


time to review the pages upon pages
of spread sheets detailing how four
years of county sales tax and two
years of recreational bond money
has been spent.
Preiksat and his fellow committee
members Vice Chair Jim Leis,
Maxine Barritt, Tim MicFerrin and
Bruce Rand have already sched-
uled their next meeting for 10 a.m.
Dec. 1, after waiting nearly two years
for their first meeting. Only the city
finance director could call the first
meeting to order, but now the com-
mittees have selected a chairperson,
they can meet whenever they want.
A series of Venice Gondolier Sun
news stories pointed out that none
of the members had heard from the
city since being appointed Feb. 24,
2004. Members said whenever they
asked, city officials told them they
were waiting for a full-time finance

SPENDING MONEY
A pair of citizen tax oversight committees, both with the same members, finally
was called to order by the city for its first meeting. Their role is to review if the
city has properly spent 1-cent sales tax and recreational bond money.
Here's a quick review of how some of the money has been spent:* /
Recreational bond
"- Fishing Pier $1.1 million in bond money; totaf projecft-cost of $1.9 million.
* Tramonto Vista Park $3 million is budgeted; $1 million has been spent so far
on purchase, demolition and designs; about $2 million remain for future con-
struction.
- Beach Project $1.7 million in bond money; total local share was $7.9 million;
amount of bond money used will increase if state requires limestone to be used
for artificial reefs that must be built.
* Community Center 51.8 million in bond money; total project cost of $4.8
million.
* Total Bonds About 55.6 million of bond money has already been spent, leav-
ing about $4 million available. Tramonto Vista Park is budgeted to receive $2
million worth of that, some may be used for additional Community Center cost
overruns and the city does not know how much is still needed for the beach pro-
ject.
1-cent sales tax
Here are some of the top expenditures dating back to 1999. All of the money
must be used toward infrastructure projects.
* U.S. 41 Business (Medjool palm trees) $2.7 million
* Venice Area Beautification Inc. $S1.1 million
*Paw Park- $1 million
* Beach Project -- 5956,000
* Fire Station No. 3 (Laurel Road) $700,000
* Downtown sector $594,000
* City Hall AC/heating $500,000
* Venetian Waterway Park $250,000
* Interactive Children's Fountain 5227,409
* Harbor Drive/Venice Avenue traffic light 5 150,000

Just a few miles east, where
Venice Avenue paving turns to dirt
leading toward Snook Haven, is;an
area where nature still rules. .
It's where the Nlyakka River is still
the most powerful force around,
ahd the beat of a developer's drum is
the only thing wildlife and natural
habitat fears.
Sarasota County officials' claim
they have the answer. Tuesday, vot-
ers will decide whether or not they
want to pay for that answer by
extending the land-acquisition ref-
erendum bonds for another 10
years.
These bonds would raise up to
$250 million shooting well past


the 1999 voter-approved amount of
$53 million and continue the pur-
chase of environmentally sensitive
lands. The issue also would loosen
requirements so the county could
buy and create neighborhood parks,
despite not being considered envi-
rorunentally sensitive.
That could include the 2-plus
acres of Snook Haven, if the issue
passes and county land preserva-
tionists decide to go after it. Snook
Haven's boat launch, rustic cabins
and restaurant are up for sale, and
the property is almost entirely sur-
rounded by environmentally sensi-
tive land like Jelks Preserve.
"It tSnook Haven) is on the mar-
ket," said Ed Freeman, of the
Sarasota County Nature Conserv-
ancy, which identifies the land to be


bought. 'As of now, it's not listed as a
priority site. But it could if this pass-
es.
The 130 acres along the western
bank of the Myakka River between
Snook Haven and Jelks Preserve has
been identified, however, and would
be bought should the referendum
pass.
Sarasota County Commissioners
have emphasized this is not a tax
increase. Instead, this is an exten-
sion of, the ad valorem tay of 0.25
mill until 2029, instead of the exist-
ing expiration date of 2019. This
equals about $25 in tax for every
$100,000 of taxable value on a home
or business.
About 60 percent of the money-
$150 million would go toward
environmentally sensitive land pur-
chases, and the rest $100 million
to the neighborhood parks pro-
gram, explained Belinda Perry,

Road projects update be patient


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Won't be long before a
major north-south access
route through Venice is done
- five or six months, a mere
snapshot in time.
When finished, Pinebrook
Road will run from Laurel
Road to Center Road.
"The roadwork is com-
plete," said Jim O'Donnell,
Sarasota County Manager of
Inspection Services for Land
Development, "but the
intersection improvement
at Center Road is at a stand-
still."
O'Donnell said the con-,
tractor is awaiting confirma-,
tion for the order of light


poles and other utility hard-
ware.
"Once they get that confir-
mation, they can start work
on the improvements," he
said.
O'Donriell said while the
roadway is done and the bulk
of the storm drains and most
utilities are in place, there is
still some fine tuning to be
done, like the landscaping.
Pinebrook Road currently
runs from Laurel Road to
Venice Avenue, with a small
extension south of Venice
Avenue serving as access to
the Venice Commons shop-
ping center.
The construction of the
road was delayed by a dispute
between the county and Sam


Rodgers Properties Inc., the
developer of Pelican Pointe
Golf & Country Cliub, over
impact fees credits.
Pelican Pointe, the devel-
oper, is paying for the project
with reimbursement expect-
ed from the county from
impact fees.
The total cost of the
Pinebrook project is estimat-
ed at $2.3 million, with $1.1
million of that representing
impact fee credits for Pelican
Pointe.
Big hopes Hah!
.Officials are hoping that
the completion of Pinebrook
to Center Road will help
relieve traffic congestion
when there is a traffic wreck


on Interstate 75 and that
roadway is closed.
When that happens, free-
way traffic generally exits at
Laurel Road or Jacaranda
Boulevard, comes across
Venice Avenue to U.S. 41
Bypass, and heads north
causing traffic backups of
biblical proportions 'in the
city.
Center Road
Meanwhile on Center
Road, progress is much slow-
er.
"They're clearing that right
now," O'Donnell said. "Doing
some of the storm work, get-
ting utilities in line."
Road improvements are,
being made on Center Road

months.


from Jacaranda Boulevard to
River Road, a distance of
roughly 3.6 miles.
The. roadway will be
widened to four lanes with a
bike lane, landscaping and
lighting.


Center Road east to River
Road is considered a major
east/west artery.

SW Florida sea turtle season proves disastrous, worst in recent history


BYGAVINOFF
STAFFWRITER

Southwest Florida is
wrapping up its latest sea
turtle-nesting season the
worst for some' beaches in
recent history' during
whicIi h beach renourishment
projects, 'disorientations,
storms and even a coyote
devastated nests and new-
born turtles.
Wilma Katz, permit holder
with the Coastal Wildlife
Club, said storms, beginning
with Hurricane Dennis in the
summer, and predators


wiped nests from many area
beaches.
Beaches that previously
saw 100-150 sea turtle nests
-failed to produce a single
hatchling this year, Katz said.
. "This was the worse sea-
son I've encountered," said
Katz, a 20-year veteran. "Our
numbers are down, and. we
took such a beating from the
weather."
Hurricane Dennis, which
brushed the area in June, ate
large chunks of Manasota
Key's beach, taking newly laid
nests with it, Katz said.
The sea turtles that came


ashore afterward were forced
to lay nests. on a narrow
beach, which later got larger
with additional sand brought
up from at least two major
storms.
."Those poor nests just got
buried," Katz said.
Local agencies must report
the total number of nests,
along with the number of
'false crawls, disorientations
and hatchlings to the state by
the end of November.
False crawls are when sea
turtles travel up 'the beach,
but don't lay eggs, perhaps
because of some disturbance


such as light. The turtles
either surface on a different
beach or discard their eggs in
the Gulf of Mexico, which kills
all the hatchlings.
Charlotte County's num-
bers have yet to be tabulated,
Katz said.
"It's just so discouraging,"
she said. "We just don't want
to do it."
Down, down, down
Charlotte County, as well
as the state, has witnessed a
decline' in nesting numbers
for the last six years.
And like Charlotte County,


nesting numbers on Sarasota
County beaches were also
down this season.
Kenya Leonard of Sarasota
County Environmental
Services said the county tal-
lied about 1,200 nests this
year, down nearly 70 nests
from 2004.
The county also reported
700 disorientations, in which
baby sea turtles likely fol-
lowed artificial light and
crawled away from the water.
"Many of those made it to
the water, but many of those
didn't," Leonard said. "It's
hard to tell."


Beach renourishment pro-
jects in Venice, a coyote on
Caspersen Beach and red tide
throughout the gulf took a toll
on both adult and baby tur-
tles. More than 130 sea turtles
, have been killed by red tide
since June, Mote Marine
Laboratory reported.
In addition, an adult turtle
was run over on Longboat
Key after it became disorient-
ed and wandered onto the
road, and a turtle was killed
by a dredging boat in Venice.
"On a scale of one to 10,1 I
would give this season a four,"
Leonard said.

Our Mother's House helps single mothers make it


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


Our Mother's House is a
non-profit program of the
Catholic Charities Diocese of
Venice that gives single moth-
ers, that without the program
would likely be homeless, a
safe, affordable place to live
and the training they will
need to survive-on their own.
"We work with the moms
here ... our goal being that
when they leave here they can
support themselves," said
Joyce Scott, Program Director
for OMH. "The very best thing
we do for our mothers here is
help them get to the next
level."
OMH provides their moth-
ers with a case worker that
they meet with once a week.
They coordinate with Jobs
Etc. to train and educate
mothers about the job market
and help them find a suitable
career.
They also receive CPR and
first aid training.
"Our mothers come here
and get what they need -
education, a career," Scotd
said.
OMH provides their own
classes as well as babysitting
for moms who have trouble
balancing' work with child
care.
OMH is run almost entire-


Sarasota County School
Board took the following
actions at Tuesday's meeting
at The Landings:
Nobbe Grant -
announced the receipt of a
grant from The Community
Foundation's Nobbe Fund in
the amount of $407,000. The
grant, one of the largest single
donations from the founda-
tion, will fund a Performance-
Based Diploma program. The
program targets at-risk stu-
dents, allowing them to com-
plete a computer-based cur-


ly by a group of 20 volunteers.
"We rely very strongly on
our volunteers. We love them
and we take care of them,"
Scott said. "We are always
looking for new ones."
Volunteers take care of the
babysitting, maintenance,
cleaning, fund raising and
donation tracking. *
This year was very produc-
tive for OMH.
"There's a lot of new
things," Scott said.
One of the biggest addi-
tions to OMH is the building,
that holds six new apart-
ments and a new office, that
was added earlier in the year.
This is in addition to the four
apartments that already exist-.
ed.
In September, several new
staff members were added to
compensate for the new fam-
ilies that moved in.
"I'm new, there's a new vol-
unteer coordinator, a new
administrative assistant and a
new case worker," Scott said.
Assistance and residence
Scott is always searching
for more volunteers to help
assist her mothers in need. If
you are interested in becom-
ing a volunteer at Our
Mother's House, call 485-6264
and ask for the volunteer
coordinator.
OMH also is open to dona-


riculum that is self paced. The
program has mentoring and
an employability component.
Booker High School will
introduce the program in the
spring of 2006.
Defibrillator policy -
revised a policy to require an
automatic external defibrilla-
tor be available for use, if
needed, at every Sarasota
County preseason and regu-
lar season interscholastic
contest held with the county.
Staff and certified athletic
trainers will be trained to use ,

pull-ups, wet wipes, toilet tis-

clothes, crib sheets and dish
towels are always needed.
Another way you can help
out is head to People's Pottery
on St. Armand's Circle in
Sarasota on Nov. 11 from 6-9


the defibrillators.
SAC responsibilities -
put out for comment a draft
policy for school advisory
councils. Policy revisions call
for eliminating two SAC
responsibilities. While the
policy continues to make it
the responsibility of SACs to
request assistance from the
district when the school fails
to make adequate progress
on the overall plan, it will no
longer be require SACs to
define adequate progress for
each school goal and negoti-.

Another change would no

bility of SACs to recommend

cies and rules, statutes or
state Board of Education

allowed to recommend
waivers that would allow

CMU district up for final vote


Some residents file complaints that public
opinions are being excluded from council
member packets.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


On accident or on pur-
pose, residents have accused
the city of excluding written
citizen input on at least two
contentious matters up for a
vote Tuesday.
Neither group is pointing
fingers and accepting omis-
sion of their materials from
Venice City Council member
packets as an "oversight."
Following their com-
plaints, information has been
included from residents
opposed to amending future
land use designations at
Royal Capri and Villa Lago,
and another citizen offering
suggestions on the proposed
Commercial Mixed Use
District.
Their concern, however, is
council members will not
give the materials a serious
look because it was received
so late.
"I'm disappointed it didn't


get into the packets (two
weeks ago)," said Greg
Shanika, who offered pages of
suggestions on creating a
CMU. "And even more disap-
pointing, I don't know if
council members really
received an opportunity to
read it. I was just trying to
help them out a little with
this.
"I don't have any particular
agenda, and I really do want a
CMU developed in town. ...
I'm just concerned the early
drafts are a bit nebulous. It
was a lot of show me what
you got and I'lltell you if I like
it. I don't think that's good for
the developer or the city."
CMU is up for a final vote
at the 1:30 p.m. meeting. The
public will be given the
. chance to speak on the topic
before council votes.
In the other case, Sorrento
,Ranches Homeowners
Association President Robert
Burrus sent a letter thanking
City Clerk Lori Stelzer for


ON THE WEB
Read the complete city council agenda online at venicegov.com
under the public meetings link.
Among the other items up for a vote:
- Final reading to let city code enforcement officers issue citations
much like parking tickets costing up to $500 for violations like tall
grass, unlicensed vehicles, building without a permit and seat tur-
tle light violations. Citizens who wanted to challenge tickets
would have to go to court.
- Final reading on creating the Venetian Urban Design Overlay
District along U.S. 41 Business from Milan Avenue to Circus Bridge.
- First reading change rules and refund water deposits more quick-
ly to property owners. However, all city rules would remain
unchanged that require renters pay twice as much for a deposit,
hold onto the money for two years and require the deposit go
toward the customer's final bill, rather than be refunded.


inserting 57 pages of informa-
tion and comments about the
Villa Lago and Royal Capris
comprehensive plan amend-
ments.
Royal Capri is asking to
change its zoning allowance
from a maximum of 4.9 units
per acre to a maximum of 13
units per acre. At Villa Lago,
developers are asking for a
maximum of 4.9 units per
acre.
Sorrento Ranches, which is
one home per 5 acres, is chal-
lenging the proposals as,
being too dense along
Pinebrook Road. Planning
commission recommends
city council approve Villa
Lago's request, but deny Royal
Capri's application.
"Although the statement
on page 224 of the (council
member's) Agenda Packet
correctly reflects the fact that
the Planning Commission
recommended denial of the
Royal Capri Comp Plan
Amendment, this is flatly
contradicted by the state-
ment in Item C of the Staff
Report on page 229 of the
Agenda Packet (of the Royal
Capri section) that 'the
Planning Commission rec-.
ommends approval of the
proposed plan amendment
to City Council.'
While this may have been
an oversight, it could lead to
confusion and we would
appreciate its correction,"
Burrus wrote to the city clerk,
as well as going on to contra-
dict other agenda packet
details.
Royal Capris and Villa Lago
are part of a package of nine
properties within city limits
up for comp plan amend-
ments.

APPEAL from Page 1A
concerns, like a pending con-
tract buyout by its founding
principal, as well as declining
enrollment, are valid grounds
to deny the charter.
CFA officials say the school
board focused too much on
its ties to SLA and not the
merits of the CFA application,
which was approved by
school boards in Lee and
Collier counties. CFA will
open its doors in Collier
County in 2006, but is still
searching for a facility in Lee
County.
Lang is disappointed the
school board chose to base its
decision on its ties with SLA.
"Is that an appropriate rea-
son to deny a charter applica-
tion?" she asked. "They were
focusing on the wrong issue.
They didn't look at the
strength of our application.
They couldn't get past our
relationship with SLA. They
didn't want to.
"We are not SLA. We do not
want to become SLA. We have


a strong program indepen-
dent of SLAs."
Denied
On Oct. 18 the board de-
nied all five charter school
applications filed this year in
Sarasota County.
CFAs application was the
only one to receive a satisfac-
tory rating by the district
charter review committee.
Still, CFA's application was
denied by a 4-1 vote.
Good cause
A charter review commit-
tee earlier this month said it
was concerned with the acad-
emy's proposal to share ser-
vices with SLA.
"There is no distinction
between board members,
administration, facilities or
mission," stated a prelimi-
nary committee report. "This
application looks like an
extension of program and
curriculum that SLA' could
offer on its own, without
another charter in the same
facility."


Later, the committee
revised its findings, saying the
concerns established in a pre-
liminary report were "fully
addressed."
But the school board's
denial of the Challenge
Academy is based almost
exactly on the same concerns
raised by the charter school
committee.
The district's letter of de-
nial was based upon "specific
and good cause reasons."
"The most significant find-
ing and concern in this appli-
cation is that the Challenge
Foundation Academy is a
charter school proposal that
shares resources and services
with the existing Student
Leadership Academy," reads
the denial letter.
"This is cause for great
concern because the existing
Student Leadership Academy
has suffered a difficult startup
year, a change in school
administration, a governance
lawsuit, and dissatisfaction by
parents and students. The
school is currently under


enrolled due to these prob-
lems."
The letter goes on to
accuse SLA of being in it for
the money.
"The relationship between
the Academy and SLA ap-
pears to be driven solely by
funding issues, while perfor-
mance outcomes are only
vaguely predictable. The
school board and administra-
tion must satisfactorily re-
solve all of these issues before
any expansion can occur at :
the Student Leadership Acad-
emy."
The right thing
Lang claims issues out-
lined in the letter of denial
were addressed to the satis-
faction of the district charter
review committee. Therefore,
its applications should have
been approved.
"We feel we had an appro-
priate application" Lang said.
"When you hit a wall like this,
you think to yourself, do I
need this headache? Is this
the hill we want to die on? I

Academy, is at thq center of the appeal between Challenge
Foundation Academy and the Sarasota County School Board.
CFA's charter school application was recently denied by the


board because of its ties to SLA.

think parents should have
choice. We're making a con-
scientious decision to do this.
It's the right thing to do," Lang
said.
The district stands by its
decision.
In the end, it is the district's
responsibility to make a deci-


sion based on what is Best for
students, said board presi-
dent. Kathy Kleinlein. "We
support choices for parents,
but not bad choices," she
said.

Creek project looks


to another company

A Fort Lauderdale firm that started the job almost
four years ago quit in a dispute. The original pro-
ject price tag of $794,000 climbed to more $2 mil-
lion over three years.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


When the Sarasota
County file is finally closed
on a Phillippi Creek dredg-
ing project that has unfold-
ed over four years and still
isn't finished, the bottom
line is it will have cost $33 to
remove each and every one
of more than 60,000 cubic
yards of accumulated silt
and muck.
"It has turned out to be the
biggest project of this type
we've ever dealt with," said
West Coast Inland Navigation
District Executive Director
Chuck Listowski, who has
provided oversight manage-
ment for the county. "We'll
hire a third company to finish
this."
The story of cleaning up
Phillippi Creek began in 2001,
when county officials com-
mitted $794,000 to have
about 23,400 cubic yards of
material removed so flood
waters wouldn't back up dur-
ing heavy storms, and recre-
ational boaters could safely
navigate to open waters.

Caught in the middle was

Cropped out
Finally, when they could go

were, stopped by rock out-
croppings that blocked access
to an area called the Lower

2,500 cubic yards of material

"We're going to bring in

"There is enough money
left to pay Energy Resources
$120,000 to use its hydraulic

said. "Then there will have
been more than 60,000
cubic yards removed for
about $2 million, which is

STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County Govern-
ment is requesting storm
damage information from
all residents and business
owners throughout the
county. This information
can be reported to the
Sarasota County Call Center
at 861-5000.
By obtaining this infor-
mation, county officials
hope to assess damages that
occur during these storms
and take measures to lessen
personal and community
losses and their impact.
Businesses that sustained
damage can report their
losses through the
Economic Development
Corporation of Sarasota


County.
A damage assessment
form is available on the EDC
Web site. The EDC will for-
ward information to county
and state agencies, which
will analyze the extent of
damage to determine
whether more financial
assistance is needed beyond
standard insurance claims.
"Our goal is to quickly
deliver damage reports to
appropriate agencies so that
local businesses get the
extra help they need to
resume operations," said
Kathy Baylis, EDC president.

OUR VIEW



County should try to make peace with North Port


he dispute between North Port and
Sarasota County over the pending sale
of building lots taken for nonpayment
of taxes should be over early next year.
However, there are North Port residents
who simply cannot forgive their city com-
mission for "caving in" settling for just 55
percent of the millions in the expected wind-
fall.
The two sides have never agreed who
actually owned the lots before Dec. 7, 2004,
when a compromise was reached. Even now,
county officials contend the lots always
belonged to them.
The county used section 197.502 of the
Florida statutes to support its case. North
Port turned to another section, of same state
law, 197.592, when it disagreed.
The county points out the law reads:
"Three years after the day the land (taken for
non-payment of taxes) was offered for public
sale, the land shall (revert) to the county in


which it is located, free and clear."
David Bullock, deputy county administra-
tor for Sarasota County, says tax land is auto-
matically advertised and marketed when the
owner gives it up through nonpayment of
taxes.
North Port was counting on another sec-
tion of the law, which reads: "Lands acquired
by any county of the state for delinquent
taxes in accordance with the law ... shall be
conveyed to the governing board of the
municipality in which the land is located."
It is easy to understand why there still are
hard feelings, with so much money at stake.
Lawyers on both sides explain that the two
apparently conflicting sections of state law
have never been ruled on or clarified by a
judge in court. In February of 2004, the city
filed a lawsuit against the county to try to do
that, but when governmental units have a
dispute they are required by the state to first
try to settle their disagreement through


mediation before the case goes before a
judge.
In this case, the city and county met last
Dec. 7 with 'a mediator. Both sides, apparent-
ly fearing they would lose the money, agreed
to split the income, with 55 percent going to
North Port and 45 percent earmarked for
Sarasota County. It has since been estimated
the sale of the .roughly 2,200 lots at today's
prices will bring in as much as $60 million
before the sale ends.
But Rob Robinson, city attorney, says he
believes to this day the tax land belongs to
the city, and if the issue had gone before a
judge, the city would have won.
"In my mind the county never had a valid
case," Robinson said a few days ago.
It is unfortunate that hard feelings contin-
ue to exist between Sarasota County and
North Port. There is plenty of important busi-
ness to work on together. Many believe the
animosity actually goes back to the city's


annexation of Thomas Ranch, or earlier.
Some North Port officials still seem con-
vinced that Jim Ley, the county administra-
tor, and his staff are determined to get even
with the city as so often happens when
people play politics- to the north in
Washington, D.C. That, city officials explain,
is why they believe North Port has been
unable to get the county to work with them
on some significant projects over the years.
However, Robinson suggests steps have
been taken to "establish and repair" the
relationship between the city and the coun-
ty. He also points out that the conflict
between the county and all of its cities has
a "long history."
"Back in the 1970s, five cities sued
(Sarasota County) over double taxation, and
that issue was settled over a period of 20
years," Robinson said.
This feud has already been going on long
enough.


Not everybody


can afford a condo


BOB VEDDER'
COLUMNIST


It won't be long it seems
that the only thing left stand-
ing will be condos. So much
money is being made build-
ing condos that they are wip-
ing out everything else.
Condos going for over a mil-
lion each took out our only
beach hotel. Near where I live
in downtown Nokomis they
started this week on taking
out a marina and restaurant
for condos in the million
range. They were sold before
they went on the market.
They took out a waterfront
restaurant on the Intracoastal
and will likely take out anoth-
er on the water where the
Fisherman's Wharf was locat-
ed. Developers are in court as
they try to build condos
where the Flying Bridge and
another marina are. The old.
Summerhouse restaurant on
Siesta Key one for condos.
Now they are going to put
them up where we have
apartments in town.
Unfortunately, those are not
the first apartments lost to
condos.
City Manager Marty Black
sees thisas a good fit. While I
image from -a government
revenue management stand-
point, high priced condos are
the best form of revenue for
the city, we have to have a mix
of services and accommoda-
tions.
We need marinas and
restaurants and even apart-
ments. If we cannot find
lower income housing, like
apartments, we will find our-
selves with people traveling in
from other areas making the
roads problem even worse.
As I was talking to County
Administrator- Jim Ley this
week, we talked about the low
income housing problem and
what was being done about it.
I was and still am concerned
that the county has been slow
to help in this area. We talked
about two areas I thought that
we needed help in making it
possible to house the clerks,
landscapers, manufacturing
employees, aids, etc.
For one, we need apart-
ments, a lot more apart-
ments. The apartment area
on the island over the years
has been home to many of
our employees. This was one
of the only housing they


could afford. It also was
handy to work. They would
not have to drive from North
Port causing the other prob-
lem we have.
Of course getting Habitat
and organizations like that
involved are crucial, but we
should also develop incen-
tives for people who rent at
lower levels than the value of
their property. There is a huge
market of these kind of
homes that with the right
assist can put a big dent in the
low income housing prob-
lem. Yes, it will cost some
money to do it, but then
remember you have all the
money coming in from these
million dollar condos.
OK, now let me think. If we
took the Gondolier main
building and converted it to
condos, we could sell nine,
2,000 square foot units. Four
or five would be overlooking
the water and the penthouse
units overlooking the city.
Assuming we could on
average get $750,000 a unit,
some more some less, looks
like we could probably make
some good money. Then we
could put up a four story
building overlooking the
Intracoastal where the print-
ing plant is with some conve-
nient underneath parking
and make a second killing.
Derek, this might be more
profitable than selling news-
papers, but not as much satis-
faction.

By's Crack: It really pays
to be concerned about the
environment. I heard
about a counterfeiter who
got 20 years, but the judge
let him off with 10 because
he had used recycled
paper.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Make sure to celebrate Veterans Day


Editor:
Friday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day, a national holiday pro-.
claimed by the president and many state governors of the
United States to honor and pay respect to those who fought
and gave their lives for and some who lived to talk about -
our country's faith and fight for freedom for all people.
Now is the time to pause to salute and honor our veterans.
Participate in local patriotic activities. Look in local newspa-
pers and on TV stations for scheduled events. Stand up, wave
our beautiful flag as we celebrate this so-important day dedi-
cated to our brave and loyal veterans.
We remember and honor all those, beginning with the min-
utemen who won our freedom during the Revolutionary War
and all the many American soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines,
Coast Guardsmen,,merchant seamen and POWs and MIAs -
all our wonderful military men and women who sacrificed and
went to fight for liberty and the pursuit of happiness that they
so believed in.
Let our proud United States veterans know that a grateful
nation indeed does remember. God'bless America, land of the
free andhome of the brave.

Commissioner
supports land vote

Dear Editor:
Voters will make a decision
Nov. 8 that can have an
extremely positive impact on
our future quality of life. The
decision to extend the very
successful Environmentally
Sensitive Lands acquisition
program and to raise the
bonding cap will mean that,
precious lands can be pur-
chased from willing sellers
now, and at today's prices. A
positive vote will also broad-
en the scope of the program
to allow for the purchase of
urban green spaces and
neighborhood park land that
don't meet the environmen-
tally sensitive criteria, and for
which there is currently no


dedicated' funding source.
This new option will be espe-
cially good for cities and
neighborhoods.
Some misguided people
have tried to entangle issues
of affordable housing, trans-
portation and tax increases
with the referendum. These
are only "red herrings" and
are not related to the issue at
hand. The county is moving
aggressively in addressing the
affordable housing with regu-
latory and financial mea-,
sures..We are dedicating mas-
sive funds to upgrade our
roads and install computer-
ized signalization that will
promote smoother travel.
And, we continue to lead the
west coast counties in the
lowest taxes (including non-
ad valorem assessments) and


remain steadfast in our efforts
to reduce the size of county
government. So these are not
competing priorities with the
lands program, but rather all
combine to build a strong,
vibrant and livable communi-
ty.
I hqpe that you will vote
YES, YES on Nov. 8.
Shannon Staub
County Commissioner
Cities stand to gain
from upping bond limit
Editor:
On Nov. 8 voters will
decide whether to expand
and extend Sarasota County's
popular Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Program and
whether to increase the bond
limit.
If the two referenda pass,
the program will be extended
10 years to 2029 and have
access to millions more dol-
lars for land protection.
What is not so widely
known is that passage of the
two referenda will create a
new program for the acquisi-
tion and management of
"neighborhood parkland" for
conservation and public
recreation.
Although this will be a
countywide program, I antici-
pate that it will naturally
become associated with the
county's four municipalities,
the town of Longboat Key and
the cities of Sarasota, Venice
and North Port, and the more
urbanized areas and neigh-
borhoods, such as Nokomis
and Englewood.
Passing these referenda
questions will not result in
any increase in the millage


rate of 0.25 mills taxpayers are
currently paying.
What will change is that
the 0.25. mill property tax
would be extended from 2019
to 2029, and the bond limit
increased to an amount not
to exceed $250 million, of
which up to $100 million
could be used to provide ded-
icated funding for the new
"neighborhood parkland"
program to protect special
sites that don't meet the envi-
ronmental criteria but would
be valuable additions to pub-
lic lands for conservation and
recreation.
Many of these "neighbor-
hood parkland" sites will be
located in the county's
municipalities.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 9A

Not doing jobs. I think the new program to improve stu-
dent-reading skills is great. I think the reason for doing it is
wrong. It was stated that the program was needed to help
boost reading scores on FCAT. The purpose of schooling is to
teach the skills needed to get along in life. To think of it only as
a way to elevate the school rating from FCAT puts it on an
entirely different level. That takes away the personal student-
teacher caring relationship that encourages the child. It was
also stated a 10th grader was reading at fourth-grade level and
it was hoped they could reach the sixth-grade level. Good
teachers would not have accepted that way back. Were they too
busy helping those who could elevate the FCAT rating for the
school? If some teachers had been doing their job properly
over the years, that kid would not have reached 10th grade.
FCAT probably wouldn't be necessary either. I also definitely
agree with your other article that said foul language has no
place in our schools. Let's keep it that way, please.


Birdbrain. In the October
Tax League Newsletter, Page
2, Herb Levine called our
mayor a birdbrain. Herb is the
same man who backed Gary
Anderson against Dean Cala-
maras in the election last year.
Was it two or three Gary An-
derson signs in Herb Levine's
yard? Remember the out-
come? Dean Calamaras beat
Gary Anderson by an
astounding 70 percent to 30
percent margin.
Proper property care.
About the proposed Habitat
development on Laurel Road
near Knights Trail: I sure do
hope they have some kind of
bylaws. The Habitat homes in
my area are run-down; they're
brand new and run down.
They have trucks parked all
over the front yard, kids run-
ning all over the place, weeds
growing. One of them even
has a Confederate flag half-
painted on the front door. I
have some rental property
across the street that I can't
rent because nobodywants to
pay $1,400 and look at that
kind of trash.
I really can't blame them.
They're coming in right under
the code so there's nothing
really to be done about that.
It's just dragging down prop-
erty value. And speaking of
property value, Habitat or
regular homeowner, people
need to get out and weed-
whack some of those 6-foot
weeds in their culverts. I real-
ize it's the county's job, but
obviously the county doesn't
have. the manpower or the
equipment to do it regularly.


If they can't take care of their
property, they should hire
someone.
They paid. Just an FYI to
the person who wrote in
about Epiphany Cathedral
paying for the 80 people to go
to Ireland: Those 80, people
paid for themselves to go to
Ireland.
Just plain stupid. My wife
and I are so pleased to find
out we received a free trip to
Ireland this past summer
from Epiphany Cathedral.
Whoever.called in about this
free trip does not know what
they're talking about. They're
just plain stupid and ignorant
of the facts of life. The Gon-
dolier Sun should also be
chastised for printing such
drivel.
Bad attitude. About the
dancers in the holiday pa-
rade, it appears to me that
Winslow should show a dif-
ferent attitude. For heavens
sake, rules are rules and she
shouldabide.
Surely there are other
dance studios in the area that
could abide by the rules.
Angle's concern for our chil-
dren is more important than
Winslow's bad attitude.
Unsightly. The three cor-
ners of 41 have shrubs and
sidewalks. The northeast cor-
ner has no sidewalk, only a
dumpster and trash barrels
standing on a comer. This is
an unsightly greeting to our
town.
Misinformed. I'm respond-:
ing to an article about Epiph-
any Cathedral and people
were so lucky that they went.

People paid almost $3,000
apiece to go. The church did-
n't pay for them. This person
is very misinformed. Get your
facts straight before you call
the paper.
Entitled. Each person paid
for their own ticket to Ireland.
Some of the. participants were
not members of Epiphany
Cathedral, others were not
Catholic. This was a vacation
for those people and was not
in place of a donation to sup-
port the school. People are
entitled to spend their own
money on their vacation.
Paid their own way. The
writer who called in to hotline
regarding the Epiphany trip to
Ireland with Father Cannon
obviously doesn't know what
he was talking about. Those
people paid for their own
trips. This article makes it
sound as if. the church did it
and took away from tuition
programs.
Forget Sarasota. This is to
the county commissioners.
When you guys finish beauti-
fying the St. Armand's Key
area for the benefit of the
tourists' and the wealthy,
could you see it in your heart
to spend some money to help
with the flooding situation
that exists in the Venice resi-
dential areas, primarily Ban-
yan, Redwood, Pepper Tree in
the Venice Gardens area. Your
help would be greatly appre-
ciated. Help. the Venice area
and forget Sarasota for a
while.
Nobody went free. I am
one of the leaders of the trip
to Ireland with Father Can-
non from Epiphany Ca-
thedral. There was no person
of the 80 people who went to
Ireland free; everybody paid
their own way; the church did
not pay anything. This is a real
attack on Epiphany Cathed-
ral.
Unrelated. I'm calling to
respond to the comment
about the Epiphany trip to
Ireland. This was not funded
by the church, it was paid pri-
vately by every individual. It
had nothing to do with the
school and I am one of the
people that were on that trip
and I have contributed quite a
large funding to the school.
I'm sure some people on the
trip worked very hard to get
the money together for the
trip.
People that go to the
school also have a chance for
their tuition to be based on
income and there is funding.
that helps with paying for
tuition. The trip has nothing
to do with it.

Where's the
vaccine this year?


Editor:
What must one do to get a
flu shot? I have been trying
since Oct. 17 with no success.
Every time I go to get one,
there is a sign on the door say-
ing "Due to unavailability of the
vaccine, the event.is canceled."
I have tried my own doctor and
he says he can't get it.
I am a disabled vet, and I
called the VA in Port Charlotte
and they said they were not
giving them as they couldn't
get the vaccine. I have em-
physema and dearly would
like to avail myself of the
shots, but must I go to Eng-
lewood only to find the same
notices on the door?
Never mind the bird flu, I'd
be happy with the vaccine for
the regular flu. I'm also older
than 70, so I qualify for the so-
called priority, but what good,
is it if you can't get it?
What's the problem?

more. Sorry no parade this
year. Come down and relax,
have a .brew and enjoy. All
proceeds go to a long list of
charities they support.

I have not quite figured
why gas in Englewood and
Sarasota is 20 cents cheaper
than Venice and Port Char-
lotte. Go figure. Certainly the
oil companies out-of-sight
profits have gone-noticed by
lawmakers. Let's hope even in
Venice the prices will go
down.

In talking to Jim Ley he
mentioned that the railroad
tracks will be taken up and
shell will take their place on
the stretch from the Venice
Train Depot to Sarasota by
mid-December. Since the
trestle issue over Donna Bay
will not be settled, in order to
use the trail to Sarasota you
will need to start in Nokomis.
You will be able to park at
the Nokomis Community
Center, which is about a block
from the trail. A little later
they will pave this with
asphalt (a little kinder than
cement to the joints). This
path will go next' to some of
the pretty areas of the county.
near Myakka state park.
Today's Ism: Seen on a sign
in a gift store in Havana, Fla.:
"I'm so far behind I thought I
was in first."

I hope you get a chance to
meet our new Advertising

who comes to us from Cape
Girardeau, Mo. Donna is a
wonderfully talented person.

We are fortunate she came on
to help our staff and our ad-
vertisers. She has vacationed
in this area for years and has
always loved it.

We have been coming on
line with our new press. This
has been an incredibly chal-
lenging task. We have taken
two presses owned by thd
Orlando Sentinel in Orlando
and made them into one press.
Sometimes the two don't
like to play well together, it
would seem. We have had our
struggles but Jim King our
production manager, Paul
Blaisdell the maintenance
manager and talented press-
men have been working their
way through a long list of
challenges. Our carriers, have
done a great job, sometimes
working from behind.
We have printed a lot of
jobs including now the
Gondolier front section like
you are reading right now.
The quality overall has been
very good, but even that has
had its moments. We have a


long way to go and I hope we
still service you well and print
a pleasing product. In the
long run we will have a lot
more color capability that will
enhance your paper.

Please vote Tuesday. We
have been incredibly respon-
sible in buying land to pre-
serve for generations. We
have bought most of the land
around the Myakka river and
many other pristine areas.
The new bond issue will allow
the county to also buy neigh-
borhood sensitive or impor-
tant areas that might make a
pocket park enhance the look
of an area etc.
While I am in favor of this
vote, Iwish we were spending
that kind of money on afford-
able housing, and transporta-
tion, our two biggest priori-
ties. However we will not get
another chance to save these
lands.

Sarasota Bay, other

waters to remain on

EPA's impaired list

Federal authorities in Atlanta maintain a "303D
list" of Florida's impaired waters. Any proposed
changes will be scrutinized due to changes in


state water quality stand

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Federal authorities still
consider Sarasota Bay, Little
Sarasota Bay, Phillippi Creek,
the Myakka River and many
of this region's surface water
bodies as "environmentally
impaired," despite recent
efforts by Florida regulators to
upgrade their status.
On Tuesday, U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency Re-
gion 4 Water Standards Chief
Andrew Bartlett told the
Pelican Press there are no
plans to alter the official sta-
tus of Sarasota County water
bodies, because the state has
not submitted recommenda-
tions that they be changed.
"Florida needs to make
decisions and submit them to
the EPA," Bartlett said. "We
will look at the methodologies
and determine if proper water
.quality standards were ap-
plied.in every case. The state
will have to provide good
cause justification for every
request it makes."
On Oct. 3, the EPA notified
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection Sec-
retary Colleen Castille thai'
state rule-making procedures
for recommending the re-
moval of many state water
bodies from a federal im-
paired waters list have not
been followed.
The impaired waters list-
also known as the 303D list -
is maintained by the EPA
under provisions of the 1972
U.S. Clean Water Act. All 50
states routinely recommend
additions and deletions from
the list based on approved
water quality standards test
results.
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection offi-
cials have aggressively at-
tempted to remove hundreds
of water bodies from the EPA's
303D list over the last several
years, which has only recently
come to the attention of
Sarasota County authorities.
Ripples
In July, the first hint of a
local problem surfaced when
state environmental regula-
tors notified the county that
tidal flushing wasn't a justifi-
cation for restoring Midnight
Pass because Little Sarasota
Bay was no longer considered
impaired and would be "de-
listed."
While the news initially
caught Midnight Pass restora-
tion advocates flat-footed, it
brought to light how wide-
spread the state's efforts were
at recommending the re-
moval of bays, bayous, creeks,
lakes and other water bodies
from the federally maintained
303D list.
It also sparked a lot of
questions about what state
environmental regulators
were up to, and revealed that
their methods for arriving at
"de-listing" recommenda-
tions were under the close
scrutiny of both environmen-
tal groups and the federal

court system.
What the Pelican Press has
learned over the last eight
weeks is that the EPA was: 1)
sued in 2002 for failing to
keep Florida on a tight envi-
ronmental leash; 2) required
by the' courts to reevaluate
state water testing methods;
and 3) forced to admit the
state changed its water quali-
ty standards.
In July, the EPA reluctantly
acknowledged for the first
time that Florida arbitrarily.
changed its standards for:. 1)
water quality criteria; 2) bio-
logical assessment; 3) nutri-
ent assessment; 4). fish and
shellfish assessment; 5) toxic-
ity testing; and 6) impairment
de-listing procedures.
Case-by-case
"On July 6, 2005, we identi-
fied Impaired Water Rule
changes (in the Florida Ad-
ministrative' Code) that
changed water quality stan-
dards," Bartlett conceded.
What he refused to say was
EPA will slam the door on
future "de-listing" recom-
mendations by the state.
"When Florida. submits a
;'d-li'tirig requfet', \we 'vAll
review each one to make sure
it is justified," he said. "We will
approve those we think are
justified, and disapprove
those we don't. Once ap-
proved, they will be deleted
from the 303D list."
Most of the state attempts
to "de-list" Sarasota County
water bodies have involved
nutrient levels for nitrogen
and phosphorous, which
have an adverse impact on
oxygen levels. A notable ex-
ception is .the Myakka River,
which the state wants to "de-
list" for mercury.

Venice takes 'honors' in underage alcohol sting


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Out of 14 South County
convenience stores whose
clerks sold alcohol to an
underage police decoy re-
cently, seven were in Venice.
Any inferences to be drawn
from the numbers?
"No, we just targeted that
area," said Sarasota County
Sheriff's Lt. Chuck Lesaltato.
"We do these (stings) sporad-
ically in different parts of the
county."
Who broke the law
Stores where clerks sold
alcoholic beverages to the
underage police decoy were:
Race Trac, 110 Point Loop
Drive, Venice.
Stop N' Shop, 2294 Tami-
ami Trail, Venice.
* 7-Eleven, 2200 South
Tamiami Trail, Venice.
Circle K, 1883 Tamiami


Trail, Venice.
Speedway, 1805 South
Tamiami Trail, Venice.
Mobil on the Run, 1698
Tamiami trail, Venice.
Island BP, 116 U.S. 41
Business, Venice.
Who didn't
The four stores where
clerks refused to sell were:
Citgo, 212 N. Indiana
Ave., Englewood.
Shell, 241 N. Indiana Ave.,
Englewood.
Hess Express, 4300 Tami-
ami Trail, Venice.
Mobil, 4203 South Tami-
ami Trail, Venice.
Sarasota County Sheriff
Bill Balkwill commended the
four stores whose clerks re-
fused to sell to an underage
buyer.
The other seven stores
where clerks sold to a 19-
year-old male police decoy
,were in North Port and


Englewood.

Blind?
Lesaltato said many of the-
clerks asked the decoy for
proof of age before selling.
him the alcohol.
"He showed them his real,
ID,.which showed he was only
19 years old," Lesaltato said,
"and they still sold to him."
In one sting operation sev-
eral years ago, the owner of a
popular Venice liquor store
sold to a (female) minor dur-
ing a decoy operation.
A Venice Gondolier Sun
reporter witnessed that un-
derage sale. The store owner
claimed he had a clean rec-
ord, and that police deliber-
ately sent the decoy in at a
particularly busy time just to
rattle clerks.
What's at stake
Losses to clerks and store
owners who sell alcohol to


underage buyers range from
warnings to possible suspen-
sion or loss of liquor licenses
worth tens of thousands of
dollars.
"Clerks are given criminal
notices to appear, then it's
turned over to the state bev-
erage enforcement division,"
Lesaltato said. "It's up to them
what they want to do as far as
the owner is concerned."
Lesaltato said the owner
cannot be charged if the clerk
is the one who makes the sale.
However, the state does have
the power to suspend the
store's liquor license.
"It's cooperation we want
from people selling the alco-
hol," Lesaltato said. "That is
why we run these opera-
tions."

Venice firefighter remains on leave


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A Venice firefighter wrap-
ping up a leave of absence
has had a third scrape with
police this year.
Kevin D. Gasher, 33, 200
block Amo Road, Venice, was
found in a local restaurant
Oct. 19 as sheriff's personnel
Looked for him to serve him
with a domestic restraining
order.
"He has been on an ap-
proved leave of absence since
June," Venice Fire De-
partment Chief Mike Johnson
said.
Johnson was prevented
from saying more because of
privacy laws.


However, Gasher came to
the Venice Gondolier Sun to'
see a reporter. He told the
reporter he expects to be back
to work shortly.
He said his doctor signed
off on his return in a letter to
the fire department but the
letter was not accepted due to
some "administrative" ,rea-
sons. He said the letter is be-
ing resubmitted.
Gasher is collecting his
paycheck while on leave of
absence, he said.,
Oct. 19's Venice police
midnight shift log stated in
part:
'Assist other agency -
01:54:01 SSO (Sarasota,
Sheriff's Office) is looking for
Kevin Gasher (Venice fire-


man). Word has it that he may
be at the Inn under a different
name. Has several guns with
permits ... evaluate ... hold
and notify to be served with
an injunction ... has threat-
ened S32 (Signal 32, suicide)
... subject located at 24/7 (all-
night restaurant, Bird Bay
Plaza) ... SSO has custody of
firearms and injunction serv-
ed..."
Gasher said' he had the
guns in his truck in a toolbox.
He said he surrendered them
to police when they found
him at the restaurant.
Police do not 'need a war-
rant to seize firearms when a
restraining order has been
issued against thp owner.
Court records showed


Gasher had two arrests this
year, for aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon (car)
without intent to kill on June
26 and for battery Aug. 21.
"The state attorney de-
clined -to prosecute in both
instances," Johnson said.
"The charges were totally
dropped."
Gasher and: court records
confirm the charges were
dropped.
Gasher has been with the
TFD almost seven years.
Before that, he was a firefight-
er in Bradenton.

An aching tooth is perhaps the most common dental emergency, and
is certainly one of the most unpleasant. The usual cause is tooth decay,:
but there are so many other possibilities that only your dentist, trained
to analyze the entire situation, may be able to diagnose and relieve it.
The pain will sometimes be reduced or temporarily resolved by
ingesting an analgesics like an aspirin. Ice may give relief, but inflamed
tooth nerves sometimes don't respond to it, and occasionally become
even more painful. Don't apply a hot pack. Toothache often involves a
bacterial infection, and heat can cause it to spread. Don't put an
aspirin tablet against the tooth or gum. The acid can burn the soft
tissues of the mouth. Until you can get treatment, try not to chew on
the tooth, and avoid hot or sweet foods.
Remember, pain is the body's way of giving you a message. It's a
signal that something is wrong. Even If the toothache goes away, you
should go to your dentist for an examination as soon as possible.

Indians close but no cigar

The Venice High volleyball
team knows it will be head-
ing to Lakeland on Thursday
to participate in a Class 5A
State Semifinal that evening
at the Lakeland Center.
What the Lady Indians
don't know is who they'll be
playing against.
Venice clinched a spot in
the "Final Four" by winning
Region 3 this past Thursday.
The Lady Indians oppo-
nent this coming Thursday
will be the Region 4 champi-
on. Region 4 is still a couple
of steps behind because of
Hurricane Wilma. Schools to
the south had to push back
games because of the storm.
"We won't know who we
play until Monday night and
we won't know when we play
until Tuesday," Venice head
coach Brian Wheatley said.
The Region 4 champion-
ship between West Boca Ra-
ton (26-4) and Barron Collier
(24-2) will be played at 7 p.m.
Monday.
West Boca eliminated St.
Thomas-Aquinas in four
games Saturday.
Venice defeated West
Boca earlier this season,
winning in two straight in a
best of three in the Tampa
Prep Tournament.-
Venice will play at either 6
p.m. or 8 p.m. Thursday.
The other State Semifinal
bracket is set. Chiles (26-3)
will take on Lake Howell (24-
6).
The Venice team will be
leaving for Lakeland on Wed-
nesday.
There will be a special
send-off party at 12:30 p.m.
Wednesday. The team will do
the "Indian Walk" down 1
Indian Avenue. The parade
could possibly make a right
and down Bahama Street if
enough people come out.
"It's just not a school
thing," Wheatley said. "We
want to get the whole com-
munity involved. They're
welcome to come out and
see the girls off. They'll love
it."
A special fan bus is being
organized by Ray Sinibaldi.
Call him at 488-7056 if you're
interested in going.
If Venice (24-7) can win
Thursday's semifinal, it will
play in Friday's 7 p.m. State
Championship match.
Venice made it to the state
final last year, losing to St.
Thomas-Aquinas in a mem-
orable five-game set.
This year's Lady Indian
team only has one senior -
middle blocker Dana
Dumas.
"She has a shot at 5A
Player of the Year," Wheatley
said.
Junior outside hitters
Natalie Gaudreau and Marla
Cooke have also been a con-
stant force.
Some of the other young-
sters like sophomores Casey
Taylor, Nickie Halbert, Mi-
chaela Trimble and Julie
Howlett has steadily
improved as the season has
progressed.

Tryouts for the Venetian
BayVolleyball Club teams will
be held on Sunday, Nov. 20.
Grades 5-9 will try out be-
tween noon and 2 p.m. Grades
10 and 11 will try out between
2 and 4 p.m. Check out the

Last-second field goal, attempt fails as Gulliver
posts 21-19 victory in regular season final.


BY MICHAEL LAMOND
CORRESPONDENT

Friday nights have not
been kind to the Venice High
football team this year.
The trend continued as
Venice lost a heartbreaker to
Gulliver Prep 21-19. The
Raiders are 7-1 and with good
reason. The kids from Miami
came off the bus ready to hit
and it showed.
Early on, it seemed to be all
Gulliver as the Raiders
seemed to move the ball at
will. The Raiders were also
aided by the officials, who
made some questionable
calls that put Venice in an
early hole, 7-0.
Abotched call on a deep pass
that was clearly out of bounds
set the Raiders up with a first
and goal at the Venice 2-yard
line. Gulliver wasted little time,
taking a lead they would never
relinquish.
The Indians were led by
runners Tony Charles and
Kiki Merzius, who put up 200
yards rushing on the night.
Charles accounted for 107
yards and Merzius tacked on


another 90 yards.
Venice scored on its fourth
possession of the night fol-
lowing a poor punt by the
Raiders, which set the Indians
up at their 47-yard line. Eight
plays later, Merzius ran the
ball in from 12 yards out. The
drive included a fourth down
and three conversion run by
Charles to set up the score.
In an omen of things to
come, Patrick Robinson
blocked the extra point
attempt. His name would
come back to haunt the
Indians later in the night.
Gulliver. answered the
Venice score with a 78-yard
drive, highlighted by a 42-
yard pass-and-catch: on a
third down and 20. Gulliver
came right back to the pass
with a 17-yard completion to
the 5 and finished off the
drive with a TD run to go up
14-6.
The Indians had one more
crack as the clock ran down
on the first half, but were
intercepted in the end zone
with six seconds left.
Venice went three-and-out
on its first possession of the


Venice's free safety.James Laurie makes the open field tackle.


second half and Gulliver went
three-and-out to return the
favor.
After another Venice punt,
Gulliver struck from long dis-
tance on Patrick .Robinson's
- there's that name again -
73-yard TD around left end.
At that point, the Indians
trailed 21-6 and it didn't look
good.
That's when Venice went to
the trickeration.
The Indians next drive
started at their 47 yard line.
On first down, the Indians
went to the running back
pass and it almost worked for
a 25-yard gain, but the pass
was dropped.
Undaunted, the Indians
threw again on second down,
this time successfully for 12
yards and a first down at
Gulliver's 40. Charles rambled
for eight yards on first down.
Then the Raiders started
having trouble staying
onsides. The first penalty gave
Venice a first down at the 27-
yard line. Venice continued
pounding the ball and
Gulliver jumped offsides
,again. Merzius had a seven-
yard run to the 12 and the
drive was capped by a 12-yard
TD run by Charles. The score
closed the gap to eight points
after the Indians converted
an extra point ... just barely as
you know who (Patrick
Robinson) missed on his sec-
ond straight block attempt.
Venice followed the score
with an onside kick attempt
recovered by the Raiders at
their 48 yard line.
Curiously though, Gulliver
went into their shell a little
early, going three and out and
giving the Indians hope.
Venice failed to capitalize
on its next possession, turn-
ing the ball over on downs at
GyullieS 33,yrd ie,while,
trying to get back in the game.

VHS' punter Richard Marquez in action Friday night against
Gulliver Prep. Venice lost 21-19.


The Raiders then went
three and out again and clear-
ly were trying to run the clock
down. Gulliver had to punt
and Venice took over on its
12-yard line. Five straight
running plays produced 16
yards and on a third and five,
Tyler Moses got behind the
Raiders defense to score on a
73-yard TD reception.
However, due to the
blocked kick on the first TD,
the Indians had to go for two
to tie. A pass to Tony Charles
fell incomplete, but Venice
still had life. The score was 21 -
19 with 7:18 left to play.
The Indians tried yet
another onside kick and
Gulliver recovered again at
their 48-yard line. Following
an incomplete pass on first
down, the Raiders ran eight
straight times for a total of 42
yards, driving the ball to the
Venice 10- yard line. The
Raiders chose- to run on
fourth and four rather than
try a 31-yard field goal. It
almost came back to haunt
them.
The Indians started their
final drive 90 yards from pay-
dirt. Tony Charles and Kiki
Merzius were the sparkplugs.
Charles gained 60 yards and
Merzius addedj.8,yart O an a
key 15-yard reception to keep


the drive going.
Venice had a shot at a win-
ning touchdown pass with
1:25 remaining in the contest.
Wide receiver Carter had
beaten the secondary, but
couldn't quite reach the ball.
The Indians then ran the
ball five times in a row to get
the ball to the Gulliver 7-yard
line. With eight seconds left,
Ben Shipps came on to
attempt a possible game-
winning, 24-yard field goal.
Perhaps the Indians were
overly concerned with Patrick
Robinson rushing from the,.
right side of the formation
and shifted their blocking to
protect against his edge
speed. This time it was a jail-
break from the inside and
Shipp's effort was blocked.
The special teams are one
third of a football team. The
Indians have struggled with
their field goal kicking game
the last couple of years and
when you play a running style
like Venice-does, field position
and scoring are huge.
The special teams turned
out not to be so special on
Friday night, and that is a
problem the Indians need to
fix if they are to have any
chance against undefeated
jFort Myers in. their playoff0,c
game this coming Friday.

Lady booters punish Port Charlotte in district opener


STAFF REPORT

The Venice High girls varsi-
ty soccer team is off to a flying
start.
The Lady Indians
improved their record to 2-0
with a 6-0 victory over Port
Charlotte Friday night at the
Garbrandt Complex.
The first 15 minutes of the
first half of this game was a
see-saw battle at midfield,
with both teams pulling very
effective offsides traps and


using speed to stymie each
other's attacks.
From this point, the Venice
players began to dominate
possession, and work the ball
down deep into the Port
Charlotte end of the field.
At 19 minutes into the half,
Melanie Murphy worked the
ball down' the right side at
midfield. She then slotted a
pass past the PC defense to a
breaking Kristen Johnson,
who finished the play with a
shot to the back of the PC net.


That was the lone goal of
the first half.
The Lady Indians started
out the second half the same
way they finished the first.
At the 10 minute mark of
the half, Johnson broke right,
well inside the offensive third
of the field, then nicely
dropped a cross through the.
middle to a breaking Murphy.
The ball was just off the
foot of Murphy, who wasn't
quite able to complete this
chance.


At 15 minutes in, Andria
Thomas dribbled the ball
deep into the PC penalty area,
then passed it back to Emily
Cremisio, who fired a 25 yards
shot past a sprawling PC
keeper to make it 2-0.
Only a few minutes later,
Kara Ferretti took a shot from
25 yards out. The ball
bounced off the keeper's
hands right to the foot of an
onrushing Johnson, who
deposited the ball into the
back of the goal. It was her


third goal of the season.
After the PC goalie made
several outstanding saves on
shots taken from several dif-
ferentVHS attacking player.
Our sweeper 'Kristina
Swanson carried the ball into
the midfield and slotted .a
pass through several players
to the feet of Ferretti, who ran
onto the ball taking it in full
stride. Ferretti ran straight at
the keeper then slotted the

Another miracle in the making?


VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 13A


Want to play every day?


Here's where to go


RAY SINIBALDI
SPORTS COLUMNIST


The 1969 "Amazin' Mets"
pulled off The Miracle of
Flushing Meadows when they
knocked off the heavily favored
Baltimore Orioles in the World
Series.
The New England Patriots of
2001 knocked off the heavily
favored Raiders, Steelers and
Rams to win their first Super
Bowl.
The 2000 Venice Indian foot-
ball team marched their way to
the state championship and
wrote Florida Prep football his-
tory along the way.
Now we have the 2005
Lady Indians volleyball team.
In case you missed it
Thursday night, "The Teepee"
was rocking like this observer
has never seen it rock. A near
capacity crowd was on hand


with a most enthusiastic stu-
dent body chanting "Venice,
Venice, Venice" 20 minutes
before the match began.
Coming off an incredible win
last weekend against the No. 1
ranked and 25-1 Plant High
School of Tampa, only the
Tornados of Clearwater High
School stood between them
and a second consecutive visit
to Lakeland and the Final Four.
And "Who'd a thunk it?"
Last season, the Indians
came within a game of the
State Championship. Five of
the girls from that team grad-
uated, four of them are now
playing in college and it was
clear to one and all that this
season would be the prover-
bial "rebuilding year." After
all, they have one senior and
are made up of predominant-
ly sophomores.
Early in the season, they
struggled, stumbled a bit and
then last weekend they found
and defined themselves. They
found themselves in the Plant
High gymnasium facing a
well disciplined, very talent-
ed, highly touted team and
the home crowd.
In what was described to
me by a veteran observer of
sports for more than 50 years
as "the most exciting sporting
event I've ever seen," the Lady
Indians prevailed in a match
that went four steps beyond

ball with pace to the lower left
comer of the goal.
This goal was then fol-
lowed by yet another, when
Swanison moved up again
into the midfield, this time
finding Amber Clark making
a slashing run to the right of
the PC goal.
Clark took a shot from a
difficult angle, which she
planted into the upper right
corner of the goal from about
16 yards out from the goal, yet
only about 10 yards from the
goal line.
The final goal was scored
by-Ferretti %vwho received a
pass from Andria Thom'as."


Once again Ferretti was able
to show the poise of a sea-
soned player and finish this
opportunity.
Head coach Joe Ferretti
had Daianna Lambrecht in
goal. She was able to record
her first shut-out of the young
season, while showing great
range in the goal. She
received a lot of help from a
very solid defense composed
of Liz Walchle, Swanson and
Katie Sweeney. Also seeing
more time on the field tonight
was stopper Janelle Coyle.
The Venice JVs defeated
the PC JVs 4-0. The Little
'-Ladies are 2-0.'


"the wire." Winning game five
19-17 after trailing 16-17 set
off a celebration that was
heard clear back to Venice.
Fighting the unavoidable
let down following this thun-
derous upset, Wheatley gath-
ered his troops to refocus on
the Tornados another
school steeped in volleyball
tradition and with only two
losses on the season. After
two days of what Wheatley
described as "horrible" prac-
tices, the girls came out for
Wednesday's practice ready
to go.
With a solid performance
across the board, Dana Dumas
dominating the net and the
crowd acting as the Indians sev-
enth player, the Tornados were
vanquished in four games.
And now it's on to Lakeland
Thursday night
There are those who might
suggest that this team has
already exceeded any and all
expectations and they may well
be correct. There are those that
might suggest that this is all
gravy and that the pressure is off
and they may be correct
However, Brian Wheatley
and his staff paused briefly to
celebrate this remarkable
accomplishment and this
weekend are back to work
preparing yet another run at a
state title.
Eleanor Roosevelt once
said, "You must do the thing
you think you cannot do."
Noble words, indeed, but the
words heard coming out of
"The Teepee" this week are "I
think I can, I think I can, I
think I can, I think I can."
I for one, would not bet
against them.


Ahhhh the good life. To a
golfer, it's being able to play
seven days a week. There are
all kinds of games around if
you know where to look.
Today, we're going to pull out
the magnifying glass and
show you where to go.
Quota point games, or the
$20 tour as I like to call it, are
plentiful in Sarasota County.
Want to play on Mondays?
Try Rolling Green in north
Sarasota. A great bunch of
guys and a fun game. Tuesday
you say? Try Sabal Trace in
North Port or Serenoa in
southern Sarasota. What
about Wednesdays? Lake
Venice or Rolling Green are
both good choices. Thursday?
Sabal Trace and Serenoa
, again. Friday? Rolling Green
or Bobby Jones. Saturday?
Lake Venice, Rolling Green,
Sabal Trace. Sunday is a day of
rest, but if you've got to play,
try Capri Isles or Bobby Jones
for the SUMBA game.
SUMBA is the Sunday
Morning Beaters Association.
I personally played in each
and every one of these games,
and they're all good. They are
all fairly run and enjoyable.
Sometimes going to play in
a game you haven't played in


Michael Lamond
THE ZONE

before can be a little intimi-
dating. For example, the first
time I played in the game at
Rolling Green. I was a 10
handicap at the time. I was
told by some friends that it
was an ABCD handicap game
and a lot of fun. So I go to play
in the game. Wouldn't you
know it, nobody I knew was
there. I ended up playing with
the venerable Jack Collins,
who also happens to own the
,Sarasota Greyhound Track. I
had never seen the course
before and I shot a 67, five
birdies, no bogeys my
career best round. Let me tell


you, they were looking for a
new rope to hang me with in
the clubhouse. I was referred
to as a "South County
Sandbagger" and had to
defend myself. I told these
guys that it was a fluke round
and I'd be back to prove it.
Sure enough I came back and
69 was my best round there
after that. I'll never forget Pete
Schwanz yelling at me. Pete
and I are friends now. I played
regularly at Rolling Green for
quite a while after that and
made quite a' few good
friends.
To enter these games, just
call the golf course and ask to
play in their game. They won't
bite, I promise. They will give
you the info you need to
know, starting times, fees, and
of course, the amount you
put in the game.
You can choose for your-
self what you like, but don't be
afraid to try them all. I guar-
antee you one thing.
You will meet some char-
acters out there. You might
even run into a short fat sand-
bagger like me. See ya.

Christ United Methodist welcomes our new neighbors


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


Christ United Methodist
Church has taken on the task
of creating welcome bags to
deliver to new Venice and
North Port residents.
Since Venice does not have
a welcome wagon, church
officials thought this was a
good way to greet our new
neighbors.


"We drop them off and talk
to the new people," said Paul
Baxendale, Christ United's
Business Administrator.
The program was created
by Christ United Pastor Larry
Pots.
"His job is outreach," Bax-
endale said.
The project was started
only two weeks ago, but
church volunteers have
already put together and


delivered the bags to several
new residents.
"About 150 so far,"
Baxendale said. "We hope to
do several thousand."
The welcome bags are
filled with local goodies. The
church worked hard to gather
donations of coupons and
gifts from local businesses to
help fill the bags.
"Candy, pens, hair salon
coupons, tanning salon


coupons, a free car wash, and
we include Venice Gulf Coast
Magazine," Baxendale said.
-Product samples, informa-
tion about Christ United
Methodist and a map of
Venice are also included.
Any local merchant that
would like to contribute to
these welcome bags call Paul
Baxendale at 493-7504.

Charter Military Schools receives grant from W.K. Kellogg


The funds will help promote the Sarasota Military
Academy model in Florida and elsewhere.


STAFF REPORT

The Charter Military
Schools Development Corp.,
a not-for-profit corporation
formed to replicate the suc-
cessful Sarasota Military
Academy nationwide, has
received a $200,000 grant
from the W.K. Kellogg
Foundation. The funds will be
used to underwrite the
CMSDC's second year of
operations.
"This grant is the first of
many being sought in order
to support some of the most


County's first

sheltering of

pets proves

successful

BYBOB ARDEN
PELICAN PRESS

Hurricane Wilma offered
the first opportunity to test
Sarasota County's plan to of-
fer shelter for family pets -
and interim Emergency Man-
agement Chief Chuck John-
ston says it was a success.
That was good news to
local leaders such as Sarasota
City Commissioner Lou Ann
Palmer, who has campaigned
both locally and at the state
S"level to bring family pets into
emergency shelters.
"We're going to lose too
many people someday if pets
aren't allowed," Palmer com-
mented.
In large part, Johnston
reported, bringing pets into
the shelters was a success
because the county had con-
tracted with Sarasota Canine
Search and Rescue Inc. to
manage the county's emer-
gency pet shelters '
About 3,000 people used
one if the four county emer-
gency shelters opened during
Wilma and two of those shel-
'ters accepted family pets.
They were North Port High
School and Brookside Middle
School in Sarasota.
Johnston said a total of 22
cats and 36 dogs were taken in
-at North Port High and six
cats and eight dogs were shel-
tered at Brookside.
"We had some people who
showed up without carriers or
the food and shot records we
require," Johnston said.
"Luckily, they all showed up
early enough to still go out to
the stores for food, for exam-
ple, or home for the shot

In to Africa, a three-part story


ofa photographic safari


STORY BY ALAN CARTER GUEST WRITER


Recently I had the pleasure
of xisidng Africa as a partici-
pant on a Micato Safari. ,
Micato was voted World's
Best Tour Operator & Safari
Outfitter by .Travel+Leisure
Magazine, The family-owned
business prides itself on pro-
viding first-class products
and service and paying atten-
tion to details so you can relax
and enjoy your adventure.
My adventure began when
I boarded a Delta Airlines
flight in Tampa, headed for
JFK International in New
York City and then to Zurich,
Switzerland aboard a Swissair
plain before the final flight
to Nairobi, Kenya. The com-
bined flying time is approxi-
mately 19 hours. The planes
are wide-body Air busses and
afford movies, music and
food at no additional cost.
It's always good to bring a
good book along. You will
have plenty of time to read it.
I personally carry small hand-
held video games, such as
solitaire, to pass the time and,
if you can do it on a plane,
sleeping is another option.
Arriving at Nairobi Inter-
national Airport, you are per-
sonally escorted to a separate
waiting area by Micato staff
and served refreshments
while they take your pass-
ports and visas and clear


your arrival. We were on our
way while others were still
waiting to be cleared through
customs.
In Nairobi, I staved at the,,
historic Norfolk Hotel, a
member of the Leading
Hotels of the World Originally
built in 1904, the hotel was
celebrating its 100th anniver-
sary during out stay. It is a
charming first-class hotel
with fine dining and accom-
modations. It was our home
for two nights.
As I had arrived a day early,
I had the opportunity to take
a day trip out of Nairobi to
Lake Naivasha, the former site
of Kenya InternationalAirport
where, during the 1930s, sea-
planes from England would
regularly land on the lake.
We were told it would be a
two-hour drive from Nairobi,
depending on road condi-
tions. If this wasn't the worst
road in the world, iit is a close
second. The name of the road
is Hells Gate Road. The story
goes that in order to get to our
heavenly destination, you
have to have the hell shaken
out of you. Believe me, we did.
We spent the day at the
Lake Naivasha Sopa Hotel, a
resort, which had opened just
eight months earlier. From
there we took a short ride on
the shallow hippo-occupied

lake to Crescent Island, the
remaining tip of a volcanic
crater. Wildlife is abundant
there and since there are no
predators, it is safe to walk
freely among the wild inhabi-
tants. This is there the film,
"Out of Africa," was made and
the producers had to import
all the animals since none of
them was native to this area.
Today, the animals have mul-
tiplied and there are thou-

sands of sheep, gazelles,
wildebeests, zebras, dik diks,
giraffes, boa constrictors and
dung beetles all living togeth-
er in harmony. While walking
among the giraffes in the.
wild, you need to watch
where you step and what you
are stepping on or in. It is an
unforgettable experience and
was certainly a highlight of
the trip.
Upon returning to Nairobi
in the afternoon, we had a
chance to do some shopping
downtown. Nairobi has a
population of 3.5 million peo-
ple. I think they all were in
downtown Nairobi that day.
Although I do not consider.
myself a world traveler, peo-
ple who do said that this was
the busiest city they have ever
seen. Itis a conglomeration of
people and vehicles.
Roundabouts (or traffic cir-
cles as they are know to us)
replace traffic control devices
and a Micato driver/guide
was always with us, which
was very reassuring. You
would not want to venture
alone into the city.
After a Micato orientation
the following day, we visited
the Giraffe Centre, which is
set in 120 acres of primeval
forest, 8 miles from Nairobi.
The center is the home of the
African Fund for Endangered
Wildlife, devoted to the


preservation of the endan-
gered Rothschild's Giraffe.
The center raises and then
releases the giraffes into the
wild. We were able to hand
feed these gentle giants, fac-
ing them eye-to-eye from an
elevated viewing platform.
Afterward, we went to the
home of Karen von Blixen,
author of the book on which
"Out of Africa" was based. The
surrounding area, now called
Karen Estates, was the site of
her coffee plantation. We
toured her small home, which
was seen only from the out-
side in the movie. The inside
had to be recreated for the
film because the film crews
could not navigate in the
small spaces of the actual
house. By special invitation
that evening, we were invited
to the residence of the U.S.
Ambassador, His Excellency
William Bellamy, for a wel-
come reception.
The next morning, we
packed our safari bags, leav-
ing everything that was not
essential in our suitcases. The
suitcases would catch up to
us later in the trip. The Safari
bag limitations were due to
restrictions about what could
be carried aboard Kenair
flights into the jungle. We
boarded a 44-passenger Dash

Children gain reading skills, confidence by reading to dogs


BY DR. MARTY BECKER

In libraries and classrooms
in more than 40 states, chil-
dren who are afraid to read to
adults build their confidence
and reading skills by reading
to friendly, furry, nonjudg-
mental four-legged friends.
Also known as Reading
Education Assistance Dogs ,


Intermountain Therapy Ani-
mals in Salt Lake City, Utah,
started the .program in 1999
and has seen it grow to
include more than 350 READ
teams across the U.S. accord-
ing to Veterinary Economics
magazine.
A handler sits nearby dur-
ing the 30-minute reading
session. A combination read-


ing coach and dog trainer, the
trained handler interfaces
between tht child and the
pet, keeping the pet focused
on the child's face or the
book. Or, the handler might
ask the child to repeat or
explain a word that the dog
doesn't understand.
' While it sounds unusual
and cute, university studies


have shown the READ pro-
gram really works with some
children jumping several
grade levels in reading profi-
ciency in just a few weeks.

thor of "Chicken Soup For ,

tor forABC TV's "Good

SMH named Primary Stroke Center


Now with national certification, SMH is seeking
state recognition as preferred provider in the
region.


STAFF REPORT


The Joint Commission on
Accreditation of Healthcare
Organizations awarded
Sarasota Memorial Hospital
"Primary Stroke Center" cer-
tification with distinction this
week, paving the way for the
public hospital to become the
state's first preferred provider
for stroke patients in the tri-
county area. .
Once reviewed by the state
Agency for Healthcare
Administration (AHCA), the
national designation as the
region's primary stroke center
will mean that patients suffer-
ing stroke symptoms in
Manatee, Sarasota or DeSoto
counties soon could be trans-
ported by ambulance directly
to Sarasota Memorial, rather
than the closest hospital.
"Earning certification as a
Primary Stroke Center is the
Joint Commission's gold seal
of approval," said Mauricio
Concha, M.D., stroke neurol-
ogist and medical director of
Sarasota Memorial's Stroke
Program.
"It means that we have the
specialized knowledge, skills,
technology and resources in
place to provide people in our
community with the best
possible stroke care."
To earn certification as a
Primary Stroke Center,
Sarasota Memorial under-
went an .extensive on-site
review by the Joint
Commission last month that
evaluated all aspects of care
to stroke patients, from the
emergency room and inten-
sive care units to acute stroke
care and rehab nursing units.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell, g
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I saw a television
advertisement for a
disposable hearing aid that
only cost $40.00! Why
would anyone pay $1800.00
or more for a custom digital
aid?
A. Surprising, disposable
hearing aids are not cheaper.
These aids are essentially a
one-size-fits-all with a 45 day
lifespan. A quick calculation
of the cost over time suggests
that after five years (the
typical length of ownership
for most custom made
hearing aids) the consumer
has an approximate outlay of
$1825 per ear. Custom
instruments average $1400
and the cost remains
relatively stable over the next
five years even given the cost
of batteries and repairs. Even
though disposables are not
programmable and' do not
have volume controls, we
should not ignore the 15
million persons with hearing
loss who should but don't
wear hearing aids. If the low
initial cost of the disposable.
aids helps the consumer
correct for their loss of
hearing, then these
instruments do have benefit.
If you are curious about
disposable hearing aids and
would like to' see their size
and hear their performance,
call the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers at 492-
4327 to schedule a free
demonstration.

Commission surveyor audit-
ed charts, talked to former
patients and randomly inter-
viewed .physicians and staff
about their knowledge of
stroke and protocols they fol-
low to care for patients
exhibiting signs and symp-
toms.
During the day-long sur-
vey, the hospital received two
stroke alerts from para-
medics, allowing the examin-
er to watch the hospital's
stroke team in action.
Sarasota Memorial's stroke
program includes a multidis-.
ciplinary team of physicians
from emergency medicine,
neurology, neurosurgery and
interventional radiology as
well as nursing and rehabili-
tation services, pharmacy,
radiology, food and nutrition
and social workers.
To earn certification, hos-
pitals must demonstrate their
stroke care
program follows national
standards and guidelines that
can significantly
improve outcomes for stroke
patients.
"This certification means
Sarasota Memorial Hospital
does the right things and does
them well for stroke patients,"
said Charles Mowll, executive
vice president of Business
Development, Government
and External Relations for the
Joint Comrpission.
The hospital received noti-


fiction from the Joint
Commission by letter on
Tuesday, and sent an applica-
tion and affidavit to AHCA on
Wednesday asking to be
added to the state's list of
Primary Stroke Centers. Only
18 of the state's 285 hospitals
have earned such exclusive
designation from the joint
commission.
Florida is one of several
states using Joint
Commission certification as a
means to designate preferred
providers of primary stroke
care. Once a hospital is added
to Florida's list of Primary
Stroke Centers, state law and
a pending administrative rule
will give paramedics and
emergency medical techni-
cians the right to bypass clos-
er hospitals and take stroke
victims straight to Sarasota
Memorial. For those who can
communicate their prefer-
ences, Sarasota Memorial can
be recommended as the pre-
ferred provider in the region,
said Associate Chief Nursing
Officer Sharon Tolhurst, who
oversees the hospital's stroke
program.
About Sarasota Memorial
The nation's number-three
cause of death, stroke is a
major focus for Sarasota
Memorial. The hospital has
worked closely with
Emergency Medical Services
(EMS) to develop a "Stroke
Alert," which includes proto-
cols for pre-hospital care of
stroke patients and the
speedy transport of these
individuals to the hospital.

Signs of fall -


BY FRAN PALMERI
GUEST WRITER


After a long, hot summer,
the signs are clearly there. Not
like up North, where on just
one cold night, the crickets
are abruptly silenced until
spring. In Oscar Scherer State
Park, the transition is more
subtle: Plants going to seed, a


cool breeze over the scrub in
the early morning, birds
migrating their way south.
Perhaps the truest harbinger
of all is the arrival of those
other migrants right in your
own neighborhood "snow-
birds" pulling into the drive-
way and settling into their
winter quarters for the sea-
son.

The run-on column


My apologies for this col-
umn to Ann Pinney, an en-
thusiastic English teacher at
Venice High, who tries to
in;fll good sentence struc-
ture in her students, and is a
lovely lady who e-mails my
columns, (that her daughter
Thry has typed).
Do you remember the
dangling participle? Does it
dangle like an earring, or a
fish on a hook, maybe an
enticement, I don't even
remember what a participle
is, do you?
And do you remember
learning about conjunctions?
A Latin professor told me
that a conjunction was a join-
ing.word like "and." So if two
people get married is that a
conjunction? If they get
divorced is that a disjunction?
I dunno, do you?
What is a misplaced modi-
fier? If one doesn't know what
a modifier is, how can anyone
look for it? I misplace a lot of
things, don't you? If I mis-
placed something, my hus-
band always said to look in
the refrigerator.
Ann sends my columns to
my sons, who send them on
to two newspapers. Tory

reminded me of protractors
used in Algebra.
My Latin class tablemate
taught me that pro means for
- so is a protractor some-
thing that is for tractors? I
don't think so. Were those the
thing-a-ma-jigs you put a
pencil in to make a circle?
One thing nice about writing
a column is that sometimes
you can get bywith words like
that (unless somebody edits it
out).
My professor friend, Dr.
Ann Kek, and I were talking
and she asked me if I could
recall 'this phrase from my
Latin studies: "Gallia unis in
parties, tres divisa est." which
means; "Gaul, as a whole, is
divided into three parts." She
added. "The three parts of
Gaul are what we now know
as France."
She reckons this came
from about 100 BC. Since she
knows a lot about English, I
asked her about the old
English poetry that was so
hard to read. "Oh", she said
"that was Chaucer."
Incidentally, this private,
unassuming, 99-year-old was
the first person to move into
Marriot's Brighton Gardens,
now Harbor Chase, on Dec. 4,
1996.
I am so impressed with her
PhD in Latin, her keen mind,
memory, and her wonderful
sense of humor.)
The other Ann the English
teacher also told me about
run-on sentences. That is one
sentence consisting of two or
more sentences separated
only by a comma or by NO

mark of punctuation.
I guess I am an expert on
that. My children say that
whenever I talk I change the
subject three times before I
finish a sentence. My daugh-
ter, Jean, tells me that is a
result of attention deficit dis-
order. And the reason my
sons like to check my
columns before they're print-
ed is because I tend to do the
same thing when I write.
And this column is a prime
example of my changing sub-
jects and why I call it a run-on
column. The only good thing
about this habit is it helps me
have lots of ideas for
columns.
OK. I'm sure Ann Pinney
would tell me to stick to one
subject and keep my sen-
tences shorter but you know
what? I don't really think I
want to.
By the way this has been
fun to write but in no way do I
mean to poke fun at educa-
tion because I have always
been involved with it and I
think it is THE answer to most
of the problems in this world.

The Snowbirds are back in town


IKEITH BACKIAUS

Hallelujah, the Snowbirds
are back!
Traffic jams are starting,
longer lines at area restau-
rants, and the price of toma-
toes is on the way up.
For many of the full time
residents this is a long dread-
ed event. But for me this is a
time of great joy.
So many of the snowbirds
give us hundreds of hours of
their time. They are a missed
group of much needed volun-
teers that help many of our
isolated homebound elders.
They deliver food bags and
take elders to medical ap-
pointments or shopping.
They are the lifeblood of
the home delivered meal pro-
gram, and many other activi-
ties that help our elders live in
their homes with dignity and
independence.
My stress level rises each
day as the calls come into the

"I had to buy another pre-
scription this month. I need
help."
"I no longer have any friends,
they have all died, and I am
lonely. Will someone come
visit?"
'"All my neighbors are busy. I
need a ride to the eye doctor."
" I am short of food money
this month. Can you help?"
"I am just out of the hospital
and unable to cook. Will you
bring me a home delivered
meal?"
The situations vary but
they all require courage to ask
for help.
Courage is also needed to
respond. I have learned over
the last six years working with
elders at Senior Friendship
Centers-Venice that just a lit-
tle courage to reach out in
friendship makes a huge dif-
ference in our community.
These friendly folks call
someone just to say,"Hello,
how are you doing today?"
They visit an isolated elder in
their home.
They take them shopping
or go shopping for them. We
have some wonderful volun-
teers that help elders with
small chores like teaching a
spouse to cook or balance the
checkbook. We have volun-
teers sharing their knowl-
edge, unique talents, and love
in many areas. To the elders


who need just a bit of help,
these friends change their
world.
Besides making a differ-
ence in the lives of others, vol-
unteers make a difference in
their own lives. Feeling
stressed and anxious?
Helping out can be a great
way to deal with all the emo-
tions that surround our trou-
bling times, experts say. "It
decreases anxiety and stress,"
says George Bray, PhD, pro-
fessor of psychiatry and
behavioral sciences at Baylor
College of Medicine in
Huston. "You're not just wor-'
rying about things, you're tak-
ing action, making a differ-
ence, doing something."
So, want to do something?
Want to change your small
corner of the world? Come
help us! We always have a
need for visionaries and
. activists. If you don't want to
work with us, then ask any
organization and you will find
that, the opportunities are
throughout our community.
But, I would rather you
reduce my stress level. Call
me at 584-0060.

Is your cat a couch pet-tato?


Cats are dreamy and enjoy their catnaps. But
they also need playtime and social interaction to


keep them happy and he,

STAFF REPORT

It's time to let the cat out of
She bag. Out feline friends are
becoming couch potatoes as
a result of their sedentary
lifestyles and "ho-hum" daily
routines.
Obesity is the number-one
:nutritional disorder among
cats, according to studies by
Nestl6 Purina PetCare. In fact,
studies suggest that approxi-
mately 25 percent of cats
taken to veterinary clinics are
overweight. And a survey
conducted by leading cat
food brand Friskies reveals
that the average owner
'spends less than 10 minutes a
day playing with her cat.
Despite the perception that
all cats like to do is sleep, they
need playtime, social interac-
tion and physical activity to
help maintain good body
condition and be as happy
iand healthy as possible.
' True, cats do enjoy their
catnaps. They sleep an aver-
age of 16 hours per day. But it
is up to us as their friends
' and providers to make the
most out of the eight hours
they are awake. This means


althy.

we need to make sure they get
both physical and mental
stimulation to get more out of
life.
"Many people believe that
all cats need is food, water
and a litter box-and that's
simply not true," said Pam
Johnson-Bennett, national
feline behaviorist and author.
"Cats are complex animals
with keen minds and athletic
bodies that require daily exer-
cise, adventure and fun for
optimum health."
According to Johnson-
Bennett, there are two simple
ways to give your cat more
out of life.
Add variety to playtime
Cats respond well to play
that mimics their natural
instincts, such as climbing,
scratching, hunting and
exploring. By adding some
basic elements to your.home,
such as elevated perches, a
cat tree and a solid scratching
post, you can increase their
activity.
You should be part of the
fun instead of sitting on the
sidelines, because cats love
human interaction. Playing


.with your cat also helps
establish a stronger bond.
With a little patience and
time, cats can be trained to do
fun behaviors like jumping
through hoops and rolling
over. As food-motivated ani-
mals, all it takes is a treat to
encourage and reward the
behavior. Use simple objects
from around the house to cre-
ate some fun purr-formances.
For example, cut the bottom
out of a paper bag to create a
tunnel for your cat to explore.
Or teach your cat to jump
through an embroidered
hoop for a food reward.
Make mealtime more fun
While it is important to
feed cats a high-quality cat
food such as Friskies that pro-
vides the variety, great taste
and nutrition they need, don't

forget to add fun to their feed-
ing routine. Rather than plac-
ing your cat's food bowl in the
same location every day, try
creating several fun feeding
stations around her playroom
so she can hunt for her food.
And create a fun game at
mealtime by placing your
cat's normal portion of wet
food into several compart-
ments of a muffin tin so she
can search for her supper.
Following these simple
steps can help prevent cats
from becoming couch pet-
tatoes and enhance the quali-
ty of their lives. For more

your cat more out of life, visit

In to Africa, part two of a photographic safari


In To Africa continues from
page one of today's Our Town
section of the Venice Gondolier
Sun.

The sounds of the jungle
surround you in the evening,
and it is very soothing. The
food and service were excel-
lent at this camp and at all our
locations in Africa.
The next morning we
experienced our first game
drive while traveling in a
Toyota Land Cruiser. The all-
terrain vehicles have an open
top and seat as many as eight,
although our group, which
was part of the, larger 17-
member Leopard group,
numbered just six. A driver
and guide are always with
you. The cruiser is heavily
padded, and each person is
provided with his own binoc-
ulars, water and soft drinks.
Stay away from those soft
drinks while traveling in a
land cruiser. Your stomach
may feel like a shaken bottle
of soda.
That morning, we. saw
zebra, gazelle and wildebeest
galore. We are in the jungle.
After returning for lunch
by the 80-degree pool we took
an afternoon game drive and
observed lions, giraffes, ele-
phants, ostriches and eggs,
dik dik and jackal. A dik dik is
a small deer-like animal that
reminds me of a Jack Russell
terrier, very hyper. That
evening we were treated to a
pre-dinner show by Maasai
warrior dancers at the lodge.
After dinner, those who dared
signed liability waiver forms
for the next morning's bal-
loon safari.
Up at 4:45 a.m., we were
driven to an open field and
given instructions on how to
board the gondola and then
how to exit the gondola after
lnidinig (miake-thedragfig)h
We were told to forget about
anything or anyone that fell


overboard, since there was no
stopping until the end. The
gondola basket held 12 pas-
sengers plus the pilot. We all
watched as the balloon was
filled with hot air from the gas
flame that glowed brightly in
the morning sunrise. And
then we were off.
The balloon traveled
between 8-13 miles per hour,
100-200 feet above the jungle
floor. It was extremely quiet
except for the occasional
blast of the flame, which
would startle the animals
below, causing them to scam-
per. The ride lasted some 90
minutes before we landed -
on our side in the gondola -
before being dragged about
100 feetuntil we cam to a stop
and could climb out.
Unlike balloon rides in the
United States, which often
land upright because of
milder wind conditions, our
13-mph ride required a side
landing. Afterward
we were treated to cham-
pagne as breakfast was pre-
pared in the middle of the
jungle by the support crew
that followed us on the
ground in trucks. They later
packed up the balloon and
16aded it on a truck.
Ballooning is magnificent
and breathtaking. I highly
recommend it. There was an
extra charge of $350 for this
experience but it was worth
every penny.
We landed so close to a
Maasai village that the locals
came out to greet us, sur-
rounding our area with dis-
plays of their native goods. I
bartered for 15 authentic
necklaces, which are sup-
posed to bring good luck to
the wearer. I believe they do
because, upon arriving in
Kenya, I was given one, wore
it the entire time I was iAfrica

of takeoffs and, my luggage
was Denver lost.
,What better luck could you
ask for?
On the way back to camp
for lunch, we saw cheetahs,
warthogs, hyenas and vul-
tures.
After lunch we toured a
real maasai village and
passed out candy to the chil-
dren. The Maasais live in
dung houses. Next to the
door, there is always a fresh
pile of dung, which is being
dried to patch thewalls.
When-dried, there -i' no-bdor
but enough flies remain to
remind you what the walls are


made of. The Maasai live in a
village for two or three years,
then move on and rebuild at
another location. They live on
vegetables, meat and cow
milk, which they mix with
blood. They bring their ani-
mals into their compounds at
night to protect them from
predators. Lions don't like the
smell of the dung on the
natives and therefore, they
are rarely attacked. However,
if a lion kills a native, the war-
riors must track down the
animal and kill it lest it
become used to human-flesh
and endanger the entire vil-
lage.


On another game drive, we
Ssaw three white rhinos and
two cheetahs. Although all
the animals were wild, they
were used to the safari vehi-
cles and not intimidated by
them. That day we came
upon a mother lion and her
two cubs. As the cubs
approached our vehicle with-
in 50 feet, the other walked
between them and our cruis-
er and walked completely
around us. Picture the Three
Stooges all trying to set
through a door at the same
S'ime. THen imagine the six' of
us all standing up in the
cruise snapping pictures until


the lion came toward us. We
all dropped immediately and
rolled up the windows while
the guide and the driver
laughed hysterically at us,
telling us that the lion would
not come into the vehicle. My
picture of the mother lion was
so close, you could easily see
the flies on its back.
The next morning we
boarded a Kenair 18-passen-
ger twin turbo prop plane to
Amboseli, where landed on a
cement landing strip. The
one-hour flight gave us the

Project seeks to digitize the collections of 1893 World's Fair


BY TARA BURGHART
GUEST WRITER

Visitors to the 1893 World's
Fair were awed by delicate
feather armbands worn for
decoration in Paraguay, com-
plex necklaces beaded by the
Zulu people of South Africa
and fantastical masks used in
exorcism ceremonies in Sri
Lanka.
Tens of thousands of cul-
tural objects were collected
for the fair, formally called
the World's Columbian Ex-'
position. But due to space
constraints, it's been nearly a
century since the public has
seen most of them.
Instead, the objects reside
in storage rooms at Chicago's
Field Museum of Natural
History.
Now a project getting
underway at the museum
aims to photograph up to
30,000 of these artifacts for
the development ofaWeb site
that will' allow the public vir-
tual access to the amazing
collection.
"This is arguably a national
treasure for us, but it is scat-
tered around the building,"
said Steve Nash, head of col-
lections in the museum's
anthropology department.
"We don't have the World's
Columbian Exposition room,
but with the Web and the

database we're proposing to
make, we could have the
World's Columbian Exposi-
tion Web site, so it's virtually
reuniting the collection."
The acclaimed Field Mu-
seum actually owes its exis-
tence to the 1893 World's
Fair, which marked a year
late the 400th anniversary
of Christopher Columbus'
arrival in the New World.
The museum originally was
incorporated as the Colum-
bian Museum of Chicago to
house the biological and
anthropological collections
assembled for the fair.
In 1890, fair organizers
hired Harvard University's
Frederick Ward Putnam to
oversee the development of
anthropology exhibits for the
event.
The exhibits were designed
to introduce fair visitors to
other cultures Putnam said
he sought "a perfect exhibi-
tion of the past and present
peoples of America." But
they also helped establish
anthropology as a profes-
sional scientific endeavor,
distinct from older, more
established social sciences.
One-hundred anthropolo-
gists, military officers, mis-
sionaries and government
officials were enlisted to col-
lect objects in North and
South America. Some of the

highlights from those expedi-
tions include Incan pottery
from Peru, objects from the
Eskimo culture of Greenland
and 8,000 pieces from the
prehistoric Hopewell civili-
zation in the Ohio River
Valley.
Dozens of countries from
around the world also sent
items such as silk tapes-
tries from Japan, jewelry from
the Zulu and 85 masks from
Sri Lanka, including one red
demon with ferocious teeth
and eyes popping out of the
sockets.
Some countries sent
groups of people such as a
theatrical ensemble from
Java, an island in Indonesia,
complete with musical in-
struments, elaborately dress-
ed puppets and character
masks worn by the ensem-
ble's dancers.
The fair, which opened on
May 1, 1893, featured objects
and people from a seri-,

tions included the first Ferris
Wheel and belly dancers.
By the time it closed on
Oct. 30 of that year, the fair
was a massive success, draw-.
ing more than 25 million
visitors.
Less than a year later, with
$1 million in startup funds
from retailer. Marshall Field,
the Columbian Museum of
Chicago opened, with ap-
proximately 50,000 artifacts
from the fair forming the
core of its collection.
Its name was changed in
1905 to the Field Museum of
Natural History to honor the
museum's first major bene-
factor, and in 1921 it moved
from one of the last remain-

STAFF REPORT
The Sarasota County
Library .System has been
named one of the top 10
library systems in the country.
The library system, ranked in
the category of libraries or
library systems in communi-
ties of 250,000 or more resi-
dents, was the only system in
Florida ranked in the top 10
in any population category.
The ranking was an-
nounced by Hennen's Amer-
ican Public Library Ratings
(HAPLR), a national indexing
system that ranks the top 10
public libraries in each of 10
population categories. The
HAPLR index was created by
Thomas J. Hennen Jr., direc-
tor of the Waukesha County
(Wisconsin) Federated Li-
brary System.
Hennen's annual survey
considers 15 factors to de-
termine nationwide public
library rankings, including
considerations related to cir-
culation, staffing, collection
materials, reference services
and funding levels.
The data for the 2005 edi-
tion of the index was filed by .
9,211 libraries, collected by
50 state library agencies,
and compiled at the national
level by the Federal-State
Cooperative System (FSCS),
part of the National Center
for Education Statistics.
The 2005 public. library
rankings are listed on the
HAPLR Web site, haplr-
index.com, and are featured


in the October 2005 issue o:
American Libraries maga-
zine, a publication of the
American Library Associa-
tion (ALA). The article it
also available on the ALAWel
site at www.ala.org/al. onlinf
Template.cfm?Section=selec
edarticles&Template=/Cont(
ntManagement/ContentDisy
lay.cfm&ContentID=106328.
"We are delighted that th(
numbers compiled nation.
ally and interpreted by Mi
Hennen underscore what w(
often hear from our patron!
about the quality of otu
libraries," said Nancy Pike,
Sarasota County Libraries di-
rector. "The citizens of Sara-
sota County value our librar-
ies, and the commissioners
and Sarasota County govern-
ment staff members work
hard every day to support our
libraries and ensure that they
continue to serve the public
with a wide variety of services,
in strategic-ally placed loca-
tions throughout the county."
There are eight public
libraries in the Sarasota
County Library System. For
more information about the
county's public libraries, visit
the Sarasota County Libraries'
Web site at sdibs.net or
contact the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000.

Jeep dealerships become Operation

Gratitude drop zones to support troops


51AFF REPORT


To help kick-off Ope-
ration Gratitude's holiday
donation drive and reach
American troops overseas,
the Jeep brand is expanding
its partnership with Ope-
ration Gratitude by making
the nearly 2,800 Jeep dealer-
ships nationwide including
Douglas Jeep Inc, official
drop zone locations. The
announcement was made
in a dramatic fashion by
having an all-new 2006 Jeep
Commander and seven
skydivers drop 1,200 feet


from a Sikorsky helicopter.
Operation Gratitude is a
national nonprofit organiza-
tion that collects comfort
iitems and letters of appre-
ciation from the American
public and ships them to ser-
vice members overseas.
"The Jeep brand's military
heritage goes back more than
65 years, so it's only natural
that we would expand our
relationship with Operation
Gratitude to help our service
men and women around
the world," said Gregory
Douglas of Douglas Jeep Inc.
"We want to make sure we


do our part to brighten the"
spirits of troops from Venice
or Florida who may be sta-
tioned overseas during the
holiday season."
To reach troops in time
for the holidays, Jeep dealer-
ships have begun collecting
donations for Operation
Gratitude. Consumers are
encouraged to drop off items
ranging from packs of gum
and tuna salad kits to CDs
ahd DVDs. For a complete
list of needed items, visit
jeep.com or opgratitude.com.
"Through our expanded
partnership, the Jeep brand


and its dealers have made it
possible for every American
across the country to partic-
ipate in Operation Grati-
tude's effort to express
thanks and appreciation to
our troops," said Carolyn
Blashek, founder of Ope-
ration Gratitude. "With the
Jeep brand's help, we hope
to reach our goal of sending
more than 30,000 packages
to the troops this holiday
season."

It's important to spay/neuter your pet


GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST
There are so many reasons
why it's important to
spay/neuter your pet yet so
many pet owners don't. Aside
from the obvious fact that it
prevents unwanted litters
that have already led to a crit-
ical problem with unwanted
pets in our country, here are a
few other reasons to consider
having your pet spayed or
neutered.


Did you know that
spayed/neutered pets live
longer, healthier lives? It's
true. Neutering a male cat or
dog by six months of age can
prevent testicular cancer,
prostate disease and hernias.
Spaying a female cat or dog.
helps prevent breast cancer
and pyometra (a pus-filled
uterus). The common myth
that a female cat or dog
should have a litter before she
is spayed is absolutely untrue.
The fact is, the sooner you
spay your female the better
her health will be.
Did you know that a
spayed/neutered pet is better
behaved? Neutered cats and
dogs focus more of their
attention on their human
families than those who are
not sterilized and find them-
selves in search of a mate. A
sterilized male dog will pro-
tect his family and home just
as well as one who is not, and
many problems with aggres-
sion can be avoided altogeth-


er. Reducing the need to
breed actually produces a
calming effect on the animal.
Each of us can help pre-
vent the suffering and death
of animals in our own com-
munity. Thousands of cats
and dogs of all ages and
breeds are euthanized in
Sarasota County each year
and many more suffer as
strays as a result of unwanted,
unplanned litters. These are
litters that could have easily
been prevented by spaying or
neutering. Stray animals die
painfully by starvation, dis-
ease, being hit by cars, or
eaten by wild animals. The
only way to lessen the over-
population of unwanted pets
is for each of us to become
responsible pet owners and
spay/neuter our own pets.
Anyone who has seen an ani-
mal euthanized in a shelter
for lack of a home knows the
importance ofspaying and
neutering. If financial issues
are a problem, there are low-,


cost surgery options available
for those in need. Contact
your local shelter and they
can give you organizations
that can help. Financial con-
siderations should no longer
be an issue for anyone inter-
ested in having their pet
spayed or neutered.
Spaying and neutering are
the most common surgeries
performed on animals and
with a minimal amount of
home care your pet will
resume normal behavior in
just a couple of days. As
responsible pet owners, we
owe it to our pets to provide
them with the care they need
to live long, happy lives.

Rescue is a nonprofit, no-kill
facility, located at 1925 South

Forget bird flu, beware of canine flu


BY DR. SHAWN MESSONNIER
Dear Readers: I believe in
keeping you informed with
the latest developments in
veterinary medicine. Here is
some information on a new
disease that has just started
appearing in dogs.
Veterinarians have discov-
ered a highly contagious air-
borne canine flu virus that is
spreading across the U.S.
There is no vaccine.
The virus apparently
mutated from an influenza
strain that affects horses and
has infected racing grey-


hounds in seven states
including Texas. According to
immunologists, the virus can
be spread anywhere dogs
cohabitate, even affecting
,dogs just passing each other
on the street.
This disease, like kennel
cough, can cause coughing
and gagging for up to three
weeks, but dogs with canine
flu may run fevers as high as
106 degrees and have runny
noses. Dogs with kennel
cough usually do not run
fevers or run only low-grade
fevers (102-103 degrees).


As with kennel cough, a
few dogs will develop pneu-
monia; unlike kennel cough,
some of these pneumonias
can be fatal.
While there is no vaccine
for the canine flu, one could
be developed if needed.
Supportive care, which may
reduce the incidence and
severity of pneumonia,
includes antibiotics and fluid
therapy. Using immunity-
boosting supplements will
also help the pet fight the
infection.
The best way to prevent


the disease is to minimize
exposure to horses and
infected dogs. Feeding a
good diet and strengthening
the immune system through
supplementation will also
help.

Dr Shawn Messonnier is
the author of"8 Weeks to a
Healthy Dog" and the award-
winning "The Natural Health
Bible for Dogs & Cats." Send
questions to Paws & Claws
Animal Hospital, 2145 W
Park, Plano TX, 75075, or
naturalvet @juno.com.


Homer is a neutered, 8-year-old beagle. He had a
wonderful home until the new baby came along. After
almost two years, he decided he didn't like little children.
Homer would love a new home, perhaps with seniors who
would give him the love he deserves. He loves to take
walks and ride in the car. He knows how to sit on com-
mand and has a quite personality. Homer is only 44
pounds so he is a nice size for a smaller home. Come meet
Homer at Suncoast Humane Society, 6781 San Casa Drive
in Englewood, call 474-7884, or visit humane.org.

tiful Athi Plains from above.
Justly famous for its scenic
beauty and abundant wild-
life, Amboseli National Park
is dominated by snow-
capped Mt. Kilimanjaro.,
although its peak often is
shrouded in clouds. You
might catch a glimpse of the
peak in the morning before
the clouds roll in.
Marshy areas form the
heart of this ecosystem. The
swamps are fed from under-
neath by the melting snows
of Kilimanjaro. Where the
water reaches the surface the
otherwise dry landscape is
lush and green. The presence
of permanent water guaran-
tees an abundance of ani-
nials including. elephant,
wildebeest, eland, gazelle
and zebra. Our home there
was 01 Tukai Lodge, very dif-
ferent from the tented camp
in Maasai Mara, where every
room offers a panorama of
earth, sky and wildlife with
the massive majesty of snow-
capped Kilimanjaro in the
distance.
Electricity is supplied by.


generators there too and sig-
nage advised us that, to con-
serve energy, the generators
are shut down daily 9 a.m.-
noon and 1-6 p.m. In
the afternoon on our 'first
game drive there we saw a
cheetah kill and a cape buffa-
lo. The land is very dry. Dust
twisters can be seen in the
distance. The twisters resem-
ble miniature tornadoes as
they move along the surface.
Unlike Maasai Mara, where
the land cruisers made their
own path, in Amboseli
National Park, our vehicles,
nine-passenger 4WD vans
with pop 'up tops1 had to stay
on the roads if you could
even call them roads. Lanes
are dry, dusty, filled with
potholes and resemble riding
on a ripple washboard but,
hey, this is Africa.
As the sun began to set, it
surrounded us and that
magnificent mountain in an
amber and pink glow. Some
of the best sunsets we saw
were seen in Amboseli.

Sarasota County According to industry
experts, there are over 33 physical problems
that will come under scrutiny during a home
inspection when your home is for sale. A new
report has been prepared which identifies the
eleven most common of these problems, and
what you should know about them before you
list hour home for sale.
Whether you own an old home or a
brand new one, there -are a number of things
that can fall short of requirements during a
home inspection. If not identified and dealt
with, any of these 11 items could cost you
dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's
critical that you read this report before you list
your home. If you wait until the building
inspector tags these issues for you, you will
almost certainly experience costly delays in
the close of your home sale or, worse, turn
prospective buyers away altogether.
i2


In most cases, you can make a
reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you
know what you're looking for, and knowing
what you're looking for can help you
prevent little problems from growing into
costly and unmanageable ones.
To help homesellers deal with this
issue before their home is listed, a free
report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know
to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been
- compiled which explains the issues
involved.
To hear a brief recorded message
about how to order your free copy of this
report, call 1-866-214-7091 and enter ID
7003. You can call anytime, 24 hours a
;day, 7 days a week. Call NOW to learn
how to ensure a home inspection doesn't
cost you the sale of your home.

Firefighters visit child care center


BY BARBARA ZIER
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER


The children at Venice
Nokomis United Methodist
Child Care Center enjoyed
meeting many of the firefight-
ers from the Nokomis Fire
Department during Fire
SafetyWeek.
Deputy Fire Chief Paul
Hellriegel discussed fire safety
tips with the children, such as
"Stop, Drop and Roll" and
"Stay Low in Smoke." He sug-
gested that everyone learn
where their smoke detectors
are at home and remind par-
ents to change the batteries
regularly. He also asked them
to make an escape plan with,
their families that would help
them get out of their homes


in case of a fire.
Firefighter Jordan Bunce
dressed in his gear, explaining
each step. The children were
very interested in his mask
and air tanks. He crawled
around on the floor to show
the children what he would
look like .if he had to come
into their homes during a fire.
He wanted them to know that
he is just a person dressed in
strange clothing, so they
would not be scared and run
and hide.
The firefighters showed the
children all of the tools on the
truck that are used to help
them fight fires. The kids liked
the hoses and ax the best.

Retailers hiring for




the holiday season


By DAN MEARNS
BUSINESS EDITOR
Local retailers are gearing up for
the holidays, despite mixed signals
in the national economy, and that
means, hiring more workers. In this
area, where the holiday season
coincides with. snowbird season,
merchants may be somewhat
immune to national trends.
The biggest problem for store
owners and managers this year may
be finding people to work.
"We're looking nonstop, but
there's not a lot of people out there
looking for jobs," said Bill P.ryor, co-
manager of the Wal-Mart Super-
center in Port Charlotte. "We are
definitely hiring part time and full
time."
Wal-Mart has employment
applications at a courtesy desk in
front of the store and at a kiosk in
the layaway department.
The Target store in Port Charlotte
is holding a job fair from 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. today and Monday. A table will
be set up. near the store entrance
manned by a Target "team mem-
ber," said Mary Ann Truax, execu-
tive team leader of human
resources for the department store.
Truax said Target needed 80 to
100 workers. In addition to the job
fair, workers can apply for jobs at a
kiosk at the front of the store.
'"Anyone can apply at any time,"
Trua, said, "and wil] receive an instant
interview by a store executive."
Truax said Target has openings
for "sales floor team" members,
cashiers and "logistics team" mem-
bers. The logistics group are stock-
ers who work overnight.
"There are some part-time posi-
tions," she said, ."but as the work-
load ramps up, part time may feel
like full time."
Many retailers across the coun-
try are bringing out their Christmas
and holiday decorations early this
year, in an attempt to lure shoppers
who might be discouraged by high
energy prices. John Challenger,
chief executive of global outplace-
ment firm Challenger, Gray &
Christmas. Inc. said retailers have
picked up on an uncertain con-.
sumer sentiment and rising energy
costs, and are speeding up hiring as
they head into the all-important


holiday season.
"Retailers have realized they
have to get people into stores before
those energy bills come in," Chal-
lenger said. "As a result, hiring is
occurring earlier."
Most holiday shopping is done
between Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas. But according to Challenger;
"these boundaries have been get-
ting blurred as more and more
shopping occurs before and after
the holiday, well into January."
This area may be immune to that
trend as well, again because of the
seasonal nature of the population.
Pryor saidWal-Mart-was always hir-
ing and making no particular hiring
push at this time.
"We're not doing anything differ-
ent," he said. "We try to increase our
number of employees the same
time every year."
Truax said Target likewise wasn't
doing anything earlier this year.
"Thanksgiving Day is only three
weeks 'away," she pointed out.
Challenger said discount stores
like Wal-Mart and Target are in the
best position to bring in extra staff
this holiday season, because "these
stores will see an increase in mid-
dle- and upper-middle-class shop-
pers who have decided to curb their
spending, staying away
from the higher-end
areas."
Nevertheless, the spe-
cialty stores of the Port
Charlotte Town Center
mall also are hiring extra FulI
holiday help, according to positii
Kathryn Middleton, the Sarasot
mall's marketing director.
She said all the mall Sal
stores need additional 'Mi
workers, including the Receivii
eateries in the Food
Court.
"It's the busiest shop-
ping time of the year, and
the individual stores hire Appl
additional temporary from 8a
.help," Middleton said. Palrm
"The stores will advertise Corner
or have signs in their win- 5'
dows."
Middleton said the '
mall will add additional
shopping hours the Fri-
day after Thanksgiving.


Nationwide, 58 percent of hiring
managers surveyed by Career-
Builder.com said they plan to hire
extra people in the fourth quarter to
meet demands of holiday and end-
of-the-year wrap-ups. Twenty-eight
percent expect to increase pay levels
for seasonal employees over last year.
The National Retail Federation
said last month that it expects
November and December sales to
increase 5 percent from the same
period last year.
About one-fifth of annual retail
industry sales occur during the hol-
idays. Employers must have a solid
team on hand for this most prof-
itable time of the year.
The CareerBuilder survey, how-
ever, qualified its findings by point-
ing out uncertainty created by hur-
ricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma and
rising energy prices. Although early
indicators are good, the verdict is
still out on whetherthose factors
will dampen consumers' shopping
enthusiasm.
The outlook, however, bright-,
ened Thursday as many of the
nation's retailers reported that
their sales improved in Octo- Ea
ber with the arrival of colder O
weather and the .easing of
gasoline prices.

Accomplishments, awards
Prudential Village Realty

month of October:
Punta Gorda office Luba Kiselev,
sales and listings.
Port Charlotte office Dottie John-
son Team, sales and listings.
North Port office Kiki Heffley,
sales; Moore & Moore, listings.
Englewood office Masters Team,
sales: Anne Aderman, listings.
Venice office Stephanie Franklin,
sales; Frank Bowman, listings.
Prudential Village Realty also
announced that its offices will serve as
collection sites for the Guardian Ad
Litem program for the fifth consecu-
tive years. Guardian Ad Litem is a pro-
gram that administers to children who
are wards of the court due to their
home environment. Unwrapped gifts
can be brought to any Prudential Vil-
lage Realty location, including the Port
Charlotte Town 'Center mall kiosk.
James A. Crumbaugh III, president
of Prudential Village Realty,
announced that the company's E-
Commerce Division had its busiest
week ever in the week following Hurri-
cane Wilma. Lynn Boyle, the director
of the E-Commerce Division, said she
was astounded by the number of
Yahoo leads received since- Wilma.
"The buyers are coming," Boyle said.
Century 21 Aztec & Associates
announced its top producers for Octo-
ber: Isidro Almanzar, sales agent;
Christa Murch, listings agent; and the
Lapietro/Jacobson Team, sales and
listings team.
Paul Henesy of Palm Chrysler Jeep
Dodge in Punta Gorda has achieved a
Master Sales Professional certification
from DaimlerChrysler. To earn this sta-
tus, Henesy completed a minimum of
30 hours of intensive study, achieved
superior performance by selling more
than 100 vehicles per year and
received exceptional feedback scores
from customers.
In addition, Master Sales Profession-
als have to demonstrate extensive
product knowledge among a vast port-
folio of Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge prod-
ucts.
'All of the classes and training were
well worth the time and effort," said
Henesy. "I learned how the act of sell-
ing a car goes beyond the initial vehi-
cle purchase. Cultivating a lasting
relationship with the consumer is the
ultimate goal."
"Henesy demonstrates the commit-
ment to professionalism and career
development we like to see from our
employees," said Keith Hart, sales
manager at Palm Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
"Having highly trained sales
consultants is a win-win situation. The
customer gets an enjoyable buying
experience, the 'salesperson gets the
satisfaction of making the sale and
the dealership benefits from long-
term customer relationships estab-
lished by a more professional sales
force. Those three factors have a signif-
icant impact on our business."
Henesyjoined a select group of Mas-


SEVERSON
ter Sales Professionals across the
country. Only 10 percent of sales con-
sultants nationwide achieve this
status.
Two other area sales associates,
Susan Tumolo of Palm Chrysler Jeep
Dodge and Daniel Duduka of Venice
Dodge, achieved Masters Elite Profes-
sional certification. Each completed a
minimum of 30 hours of
intensive study, achieved superior per-
formance by selling more than 100
vehicles per year for a master level and
150 vehicles for a master elite level.
Like Henesy, they also received
exceptional feedback scores from cus-
tomers and demonstrated extensive
product knowledge.
Buelow Tax Service President Dale
Buelow challenged the Port Charlotte
firm's employees and clients to aid the
victims of Hurricane Katrina. Buelow
challenged employees to make contri-
butions to the American Red Cross
Katrina Relief Efforts and said he
would match them up to 50 percent or
$1,000. The employees, many ofwhom
suffered severe damage from Charley,
contributed $1,675 to date, which
Buelow matched with $837.50.
Buelow and his employees recruited
their own tax clients to participate
with the same pledge, with Buelow
offering to match 10 percent up to
$2500. Clients to date have con-
tributed $11,985.
',Among clients, employees and
Buelow's matching contributions,
more than $16,998 has been raised for
the Red Cross.
"Donations are still coming in,",
Buelow spokesperson Rose Grubbs
said Friday. "We got a $100 check yes-
terday."
Rick Potts, owner of Southern
Trust Auto Sales locations in Charlotte
Harbor and North Fort Myers, partici-
pated in the Oct. 29 dedication of four
new Habitat for Humanity homes in
the latter city. The homes, located in
Ridgeway Estates and dedicated-on

places of worship throughout Lee

"We want to see families have the
opportunity to see their dreams come
.true and live their dreams," Potts said.
"Anything we can do to help the com-
munity and build a stronger relation-
ship with Southern Trust and Habitat
is good business. Habitat has done a
great job and we're proud to work with
them."

From page 1
holiday jobs with retailers,
with only 29 percent of
employers polled intending
to increase staff this holiday.
Last year, the number was 31,
percent.
FedEx Corp., the world's
largest air-express carrier,
said it expects a 5 percent
increase in packages on Dec.
12, its projected busiest day
during the Thanksgiving to
Christmas period. The com-
pany expects to handle
400,000 more packages on
that day this year than it did
last year.
"We forecasted the vol-
ume based on historic move-
ments during past holiday
-seasons and movement to
date," said Lourdes Pena, a
FedEx spokeswoman.
The company's ground
shipping division is expected


to add about 8,000 season-
al' employees this holiday
season.
The world's largest pack-
age shipping company, UPS,
typically hires drivers'
helpers and package sorters
to aid with the holiday rush.
Determined on a city-by-city
basis, staff levels around the
country are expected to
increase this year..
"Last year we hired as
many as 50,000 holiday
workers. This year, we're
planning, around, 60,000
across the country," UPS
spokeswoman Diane Hatch-
er said.
The company expects to
handle up to 20 million pack-
ages a day worldwide during
the 2005 holiday season.
KRT, Regters and The
Associated Press contributed
to this story.

Marjorie Benson, Friendly Floors owner,
was attracted to the slate look-alike porcelain tiles
by Grespania for her own home.
The two samples, at right, are Magma Ochre and
Magma Negro. To create the special effect the
company photographs natural slate and then
imprints it on a porcelain tile.
The result is the appeal of slate without the nubby
texture. (Easier on the feet and to clean.)

spotlight:

In 2004, Sun readers
chose Friendly Floors
the Best Carpet &
Flooring Company
in Charlotte County
Owner Marjorie Benson was
thrilled. "We were firming
up everyone's flooring
choices and installations
amid a scheduling chal-
lenge of hurricane propor-
tions. I got the word that we had won
around Christmas, while I was con-
gratulating my staff for keeping the
business up and running.
"It really touched us. It meant so
much that the readers chose us as their
favorite. We really needed the good
news. It rewarded us for achieving our
main goal of genuinely caring about
our traumatized customers, doing the
best we could for them under the
worst of circumstances."
Shocked and recovering homeown-

Furniture makers catering
to second homes buyers
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NICHE MARKET: Furniture makers are trying to take
advantage of the booming market for vacation
homes by creating entire product lines designed
specifically for a second home.

SMALL SPACES: In many cases, traditional sofas,
tables and dining room suites won't fit into the smaller
spaces of a vacation home. Some consumers are also
choosing a simpler lifestyle for their second home that
doesn't demand a collection of impressive furniture.

OTHER APPEALS: Furniture makers say products
crafted for second homes also appeal to younger
consumers buying their first home, and to those mov-
ing out of sprawling suburban houses and into smaller
urban condos.

their samples. Marjorie's eye
for design is evident in the
floors, walls, backsplashes -
every surface she chose for
her new store.
Marjorie's observations
of product and installation
trends are:
t Preference for darker
colors: "I'm replacing a lot of
white tile and near-white


carpet with browns, beiges."
Easy-care products: "Lots
of wood, tile and stain-
resistant carpet is selling."
Demand for unusual tiles:
"Glass tiles, Iridium mosaics
and low-maintenance porce-
lain that looks like natural
stone are hot sellers."
Continuing preference for
narrow grout lines: 'After all,
you're not there to look at the
grout!"
Use of large tile: "20-by-
20-inch tile with lots of


coordinating sizes for trim,
modular designs and brass
insets is still popular."
Using tile as art: "Tiles set
in diagonal, sidestepped and
varied patterns are joined by
masterful backsplashes and
murals."
Sophisticated shoppers:
"Our expanding population
translates into sophisticated
shoppers looking for the
unique products they see on
television and in magazines.
When Karastan first looked at


our area to choose a distribu-
tor for their product, they felt
their prices were too rich for
our marketplace. But after
further research, they decided
they wanted a presence in
Charlotte County. Then they
sought a store they felt would
complement and contribute
to their reputation. They
selected us. We are delighted
to be the exclusive distribu-
tors of Karastan locally."
For more information,
please call (941) 624-0077.


Home owners are choosing unusual, softer wood floors
that are hand scraped. Two samples, the Tuscany Reserve
in Sienna Oak and Mohawk's Antique Legends in Espresso
show off the textured surface and patina usually found in
only the finest, aged wood floors.
