Reinventing Knights Trail Road

J&J Homes files for special
taxing district to create
miniature city on 257 acres
in North Venice.

BYIJJ. ANDREWS.
ASSISTANT EDITOR -.-:


The 1.6-mile stretch of Knights
Trail Road within city limits is
about to be converted from mostly
undisturbed pastures to a minia-
ture city.
All land owner J&J Homes needs
is a special taxing district to build
the $37 million worth of roads, util-
ities and other infrastructure re-
quired to support the large-scale
development.
J&J Homes and attorney Jeff
Boone filed paperwork last week to
create the Bella Venetia Com-
munity Development District on
the 257 acres formerly known as
Stay-N-Play RV Resort. The request
became official Wednesday when
J&J Homes dropped off a check for
$15,000 at city hall to cover the
application fee.
If the district is created, future
land owners on the 257-acre site
will pay off the debt over time, and
no taxpayer dollars will be used,
explained City Manager Marty
Black. The former Stay-N-Play site
- ahnexed into the city several
years ago does not have city
water or sewage and only a few
harrow roads.
"It ensures the city would not
underuTire any of the infrastruc-
rture costs," Black said. "This is a
finance tool for (J&J Homes)."
New neighbors
Unlike the western side of
Knights Trail Road, the only visible
signs of people living along the
eastern sideiof the road are 14
mailboxes at Laurel Oaks Road,
just on the other side of city limits
before the county landfill. Only
accessible by a gravel road, these
families are about to get at least
several thousand new neighbors.
J&J Homes owns all of the land
north of the Waterford Companies
retail-residential-movie complex
development at Laurel and
Knights Trail, and all of the land
has been targeted for maximum,
density at 18 units per acre on the
future land-use map.

Except for the 75 acres of Waterford Companies property, J&J Homes
owns all of the land at least 500 acres on the eastern side of
Knights Trail Road running from Laurel Road to the North Venice city
limits near Laurel Oaks Road. This view from Gene Green Road shows
much of the undeveloped land along this 1.6-mile stretch of road.


residents, Dan Salter, spoke up at
the November city council meet-
ing. The lifelong North Venice resi-
dent remembers when his mailing
address was Nokomis, and begged
council to rethink if intensive resi-
dential development was appro-
priate there.
Instead of looking across a dirt
road to see wildlife and fields,
Saiter could be viewing condo-
minium buildings.
"It's like heaven out there.. It's
quiet. We've got animals that live
there. ... That (land use designa-
tion) is not compatible with what
we've got now," Saiter said.
Not there yet
J&J Homes hasn't said what it
will do with the roughly 300 acres
north of what will be BellaVenetia.
Messages were left with J&J Homes


ATA GLANCE
- J&J Homes wants to create a spe-
cial taxing district to build 537 mil-
lion worth of roads, utilities and
other infrastructure at the former
Stay-N-Play RV Resort.
* If the request is granted, it would
be called Bella Venetia Community
Development District and include
1,919 residential units, 120 hotel
rooms, 120 condo-hotel units and
113,000 square feet of retail space.
This proposal does not include the
remaining property, about 300
acres, J&J Homes owns on Knights
Trail Road, according to City
Manager Marty Black.

The next time you hanga louie on
U.S. 41, consider the possibilities.
Tamiami Trail is one of the most
unique roads in the United States,
and its origins are filled with Florida
history. The same stretch of road
that takes you to the supermarket
can take you as far as Copper
Harbor, Mich., or Miami Beach, Fla.,
if you prefer.
U.S. Highway 41 first opened in
1928. It traverses more than 1,850
miles of the Southeast and Midwest'
United States..

Tamiami Trail
The Tamiami Trail was the last
part of 41 to be built. It was a miser-
,able job back when Florida lacked
air conditioners and mosquito
spray. Most of the workers were
happy to be finished lugging tar
buckets. .'
Only the tough 'survived the
rugged conditions along the road.
The joke on most work camps along
the highway was to put a palmetto
bug on somebody's food tray. If they
flicked it off and continued eating,
they were considered tough enough.
Osprey to South.Venice is the
stretch residents of Venice are most
familiar with. The scenery at some'
spots is worth pulling over to peek
at, but since there are so many

of a Greyhound bus, goin'

Brothers

places to see, on 41, here's a look at
the local watering holes and a few
rarities.
South Venice
Club 41 The perfect place to
have a sip of scotch or shoot some
pool. Club 41 has music on the
weekends featuring some of the
area's best bands.
Oh, and don't forget that a quick
turn, depending on which way you
are going, can point you in the direc-
tion of one of Florida's scenic beach-
es.
Frosted Mug- Thirsty travelers
or locals can hardly drive, by and
resist the urge to wet the whistle
with a frosty mug of root beer. The
outdoor bar also draws the thirsty
into its midst.
Burgers and sausages are the
main fare .at this chomp-and-go
establishment. Of course, you also
can sit for a while arid soak in the
suds outside where the bartenders
are quick to fill up your mug.

NAPLES DAILY NEWS :

The warnings from some Florida
House Republicans began several
weeks ago. But as the divisive plan to
allow oil and gas drilling 125 miles
off Florida's shores inched closer,
Republicans intensified their admo-
nitions.
U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, the Jupiter
Republican who is a deputy majori-
ty whip, told House leadership in
recent days he would not be able to
support the Budget Reconciliation'
bill as long as an oil and gas drilling
provision was included.
"It was a real deal killer for me,"
he said.
U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV; R-Fort
Myers, said he wouldn't back the bill
either. Neither would U.S. Rep.
Katherine Harris, R-Sarasota.
Earlier this month, the Repub-
lican leaders got what they wanted
and drilling plans began to com-
pletely unravel when U.S. Rep. Clay
Shaw, R-Fort Lauderdale, said he


was not satisfied with the bill's lan-
guage and persuaded House leaders
to remove the divisive drilling provi-
sion.
Offshore drilling opponents tem-
pered their joy over the measure's
defeat with the knowledge that the
fight may be far from over.
"It's not going to go away," U.S.
Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Florida, saidin
a news conference. "It's only going to
get worse as time goes on."
U.S. Rep. Jim Davis, D-Tampa,,a
candidate for governor, said the
issue may be revived as stand-alone
legislation as soon as next week.
"I think the pressure to drill off
the coast of Florida is going to inten-
sify, every day," said Davis, who op-
posed the compromise bill. He said
there's too little oil and natural gas
off Florida to affect prices but
enough to'pump up petroleum in-
dustry profits.

FLORIDA LOTTERY


TROPICAL BOB

We're used to watching
Africa as the origin of many


terrible tropical systems.
Storms, roll off deserts, hit
Atlantic waters and tower up
into spirals of destruction.
Tropical winds blow them
westward toward us.
This usually happens in
late summer/early fall. By this
time of year, our attention
turns to the Caribbean Sea as
the place storms are born. But
in this record year, we now
have storm Delta in the deep
Atlantic.
Delta is no threat to us, but
the long-range projection is
as unusual as the season.
Delta is expected to head
toward Africa.
A bad progeny returns
home.

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY

Vegas-N-Venice may lose home

From the Nov. 29, 1997, edition of the Venice Gondolier Sun.


.NM- w. .qw -V"NA .-W .-M


BACK IN TIME


BY KIM COOL
BUSINESS EDITOR


On Monday, a few sheets of
paper may rid the city of
Venice of the gambling boat,
Vegas-N-Venice.
On those sheets of paper is
printed an underwater lands
lease between the state of
Florida and John Konecnik,
owner of the marina where
the boat has docked since
June 13.
Konecnik also owns the
Fisherman's Wharf Res-
taurant, which is leased to
Prosperity I Cruises, owner of
Vegas-N-Venice. Boat cus-
tomers eat brunch or dinner
at Konecnik's restaurant
before cruises take them to
international waters where
they can legally gamble.
Expiration of the lease and
its non-renewal may do what


all the city ordinances and
court challenges have failed to
do remove the boat from
Venice. It also will remove the
other boats from Konecnik's
marina because the lease cov-
ers more than the one dock.
The State Department of
Environmental Protection
cited Konechik for noncom-
pliance of the underwater
permit, alleging Konecnik
knowingly allowed Vegas-N-
Venice to dock within the
lease area and damage the
submerged bottom.
Local scientist Bill Dovel
disagrees with DEP officials
and is distressed the environ-
ment is being used as an
excuse to solve the issue of a
gambling boat, which has
been under fire since its
arrival.
Konecnik has a second
problem, according to Mur-


em --


ray. He said Konecnik put in a
dock for water scooters with-
out the state's permission.
Prosperity I owners have
been running up legal bills
since they first announced
they would bring a gambling
boat to Venice.
The Venice City Council
tried to prevent the boat's
arrival by enacting an ordi-
nance against such an opera-.
tion within the city. The city
lost that round in court Feb.
28, when Circuit Judge Gilbert
Smith ordered the city to issue
an occupational license for


the ship.
The county then issued
K6necnik a notice of violation
May 7 for what it called unau-
thorized dredging and filling
in the vicinity of a commercial
dock.
In June, parking was the
next issue to dog the ship, but
that seems to have been
resolved. If the ship is still here
when work on the Hatchett
Creek Bridge begins, that
issue could again become a
major concern for the city and
Prosperity I.
The next problem for, the

used as a doctor's office.


ship's owners has become its
biggest problem- prop dred-
ging.
On July 15, county officials
issued a notice of ordinance
violation to Konecnik. The
notice .referenced the Vegas-


N-Venice slip.
In August, Prosperity was
charged with violations of
Sarasota County ordinance
for causing turbidity. The
state then brought similar
charges.

Local fiber artist reaches out to teens


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER

Debbie Jones, a local
fiber artist, is donating her-
self to the South County
Young Adult Center to
teach local teens how to
make their own fabric art
creations.
She visited the center
for the first time Nov. 17.
"She's donating her time,
and materials to teach
these kids to make Christ-
mas cards,"' Barbara Koch-
mit of the youth center
said.
Jones will take each teen
through the process of
picking fabric, ironing it
onto their card and per-
sonalizing the inside.
Rebecca Powers was the
first at the SCYAC to try this
unique art style. Since
Powers will soon be mov-
ing, she and Jones turned


her card into a goodbye
card.
This new program is
only one of the many arts
and crafts classes held at
the youth center. The
SCYAC also offers stained
glass and jewelry making.
"We'd like to have our
own little gallery. That's our
long-term goal," Kochmit
said.
This gallery would be in
addition to the mural
already painted on the
walls. The mural is a col-
lection of body tracings
done by the teens at the
SCYAC.
You can view Jones's
fabric art creations at the
American Crafts Council
Fine Craft Show at the
Sarasota Bradenton Inter-
national Convention Cen-
ter, Dec. 3-5.

Siesta neighborhood



dredging project started


Lunch with a view


About 75 neighbors will pay for a dredging
project that benefits 240 property owners. A local
dredging company got to work on phase one of


the project early this wee]

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
An ambitious Siesta Key
dredging project organized by
neighbors who decided to go
it alone rather than petition
for a Sarasota County special
taxing district has started. It is
expected that one of the pri-
mary Grand Canal tributaries
will be cleared before Christ-
mas.
"The barge has arrived,"
said Bob Stahlschmidt, who
has been raising money and
working with consultants for
more than a year. "We were
about $40,000 short a month
ago, but then all the checks
came in. Now we can get to
work on phase two."
A crew from Duncan
Seawall Dock and Boat Lift
will clear about 4,000 cubic
yards of silt with a 20-foot-
wide cut along 3,100 feet of
the tributary. When they're
finished, the channel will be 4
feet below the mean high
water linie.
In addition, the Sarasota-
based firm will also clear silt
from in front of about 15
homes that have signed up
for additional work. Stahl-
schmidt expects some more
last-minute applicants will
come on board now that the
project is under way.
"Many others will now
make up their minds," he
said, "and we will refer them
to our consultant." The pro-
ject has been designed by Ed


Barber and Associates, a
Bradenton firm that often
consults with the West Coast
Inland Navigation District on
large dredging projects.
Phase one of the project
will benefit property owners
who live along canals. bound-'
ed on the north by Treasure
Boat Way, the south by
Avenida de Mayo, the east by
Sandy Beach Avenue and the
west by Calle Minorga. So far,
about 75 out of 240 property.
owners have financially par-
ticipated.
The decision by a handful
of Siesta Key residents to go it
alone, and not work through a
county waterways manage-
ment program designed to
clear choked canals, was
made to save both time and
money. Stahlschmidt won't
know if they were right until
all the bills are paid.
"I believe it will prove to
have been just as inexpensive
for those of us who decided to
financially participate," he
said, "than it would for every-
one in the neighborhood if
they had been forced to pay
through the county pro-
gram."
. In 2003, the county com-
mission approved a two-stage
dredging program that allows
waterfront neighborhoods to
sign petitions and qualify for
special taxing districts. While
the process is tedious and
time consuming, many neigh-
borhoods are signing up.
The program requires 67


percent of neighborhood
property owners to sign a
petition that expresses inter-
est in the dredging program,
and 67 percent to sign a fol-
low-up petition that pledges
they will pay if a special taxing
district is formed.
All county neighborhoods
with clogged drainage canals
.and waterways are identified
in a SeaGrant study report
authored by late University of
Florida Professor Gustavo
Antonini. They account for
approximately 66 percent, of
the restricted vessels in the
county.
Now that phase one of the
Siesta Key project is under
way, a neighbor of Stahl-
schmidt's will take the lead on
phase two.
"There are finger canals
that. still need dredging,"
Stahlschmidt said. "Frank
Howell will work with the
consultant to get them engi-
neered."
The finger canals extend
north off a main canal adja-
cent to Avenida de Mayo, and
run parallel to Higel Avenue,
Sandy Cove Avenue, Sandy
Shores Avenue and Sandy
Beach Way.
"Some are deep in portions
but need dredging in back
waters."
When the neighborhood
dredging project is complet-
ed, the county's stormwater
management division will
retrofit old culverts that
drain into the. Grand Canal
with equipment that blocks
sediment from washing into
the navigable waterway sys-
tem.


Federal agencies may expedite

permits for Siesta Key project

Sarasota County will pay an engineering consul-
tant to prepare documents for federal agencies.
Federal employees normally prepare them, but
are dealing'with Hurricane Katrina damage.

Rip currents: Don't let them catch you


BY BETTY STAUGLER
GUEST WRITER

Summer is upon us, and
that mean trips to the beach
for fun in the sun. The gulf is a
wonderful playground, but
we must respect its power.
Rip currents are the leading
surf hazard for all beachgoers.
They are most dangerous for
weak or non-swimmers. More
than 100 drownings occur
every year as a result of rip
currents. Compared to 53
deaths from lightning strikes
and .6 deaths from shark
attacks each year, rip currents
are certainly worthy of recog-
nition.
Rip currents are formed
when water is forced through
a narrow path, causing it to
rush out to sea. Rip currents
are frequently seen around
jetties, groins and other barri-
ers and can extend 1,000 feet
offshore, reaching widths of
100 feet and speeds of up to 3
miles per hour (8 feet per sec-
ond). This is faster than an
Olympic swimmer can sprint.


Rip currents can pull even the
most experienced swimmers
out to sea.
Rip currents can be found
on many surf beaches every
day. Some rip currents are
present only a few hours; oth-
ers are permanent.
Telltale signs
of rip currents:
A noticeable difference in
water color (either murkier or
darker).
A difference in waves
(larger, choppier waves in the
rip current; smaller, calmer
waves in front of the bar).
Foam or objects moving
steadily seaward.
An offshore plume of tur-
bid water past the sandbars.
A common myth about rip
currents is that they pull peo-
ple under water. Actually, they
don't. They pull people away
from shore. Drowning occurs
when people pulled offshore
are no longer able to keep
themselves afloat and swim to
shore. This may be due to any
combination of fear, panic,


exhaustion or lack of swim-
ming skills.
What to do:
If you find yourself caught
in a rip current, most impor-
tant, don't panic.
Never swim against a rip
current. Instead, swim paral-
lel to shore until you are out of
the current. Rip currents are
rarely more than 30 feet wide.
If you can't break free of the
rip current, float calmly until
the current dissipates, usually
just beyond the breakers.
Once free, swim diagonally to
shore.
If you're unable to reach
shore, draw attention to your-
self by waving your arm and
yelling for help.
Rip currents can be killers,
so be safe, be smart and know
what to do.

licans involved in Wednes-
day's last-minute negotia-
tions said Floridians needed
more time to mull over
drilling prospects and sug-
gested forums around the
state to inform residents of
the pros and cons of oil and
gas exploration.
But Foley said voting for
the proposal on the table
would have been a horren-
dous mistake.
"Any drilling language is an
absolute 'no,' Foley said.
"Right nowwe have a morato-
rium. Why would we give that
up?"
Unacceptable
The drilling legislation was
part of a larger budget bill that
urinclUded. some controversial
.items includiibgN Me6dicaid-
cuts.
As a result, House leaders
have had a hard time garner-
ing votes for the legislation in
recent days, something that
could have ultimately helped
lawmakers opposed to drill-
ing because it forced leader-
ship to throw it out. The plan
emerged several weeks ago
after intense, off-and-on ne-
gotiations between Gov. Jeb
Bush and Rep. Richard Pom-
bo, the chair of the House
Resources Committee.
As part of a compromise,
Bush and Pombo agreed to
allow oil rigs 125 miles off of
Florida's shores and give state
legislatures the power to
decide whether they wanted
to allow drilling as close as 25

miles offshore.
The vast majority of Re-
publicans in the delegation -
including Rep. Mario Diaz-
Balart supported that pro-
posal, arguing that the first of
several moratoriums in the
eastern Gulf of Mexico expires
in 2007, followed by others
that expire in 2012.
"I thought that was an
interesting proposal knowing
that the current ban disap-
pears in 2012," said Diaz-
Balart, a Miami Republican
who represents part of Collier
County. "That was unaccept-
able to me."
In their sights
At the same time, Diaz-
Balart said Florida lawmakers
opposed io the bill had "valid
,norice)ns tht, thfi, wasn't as:
good as we can get."
And those Republicans
refused to budge on the issue.
"This risky scheme would
have established a complex
process for Florida to try to
prevent drilling and itwas rid-
dled with loopholes that
could have allowed drilling to
take place just miles from our
shore," Mack said Thursday.
Martinez and his Demo-
cratic counterpart, Sen. Bill
Nelson, also staunchly op-
posed offshore drilling from
the beginning. Both senators
said Thursday they were de-
lighted at the outcome of the
tumultuous fight.

Florida, for our tourism econ-

ecosystem," Martinez said.
"We have successfully kept
any encroachments from
Florida's shores out of both the
House and Senate versions of
reconciliation. We've- won a
very significant battle."
Nelson added: "It's a victory
for the little guy over the big oil,
companies. It's a victory for
those in Congress who wish to
see our country pursue an
energy policy of developing
synthetic and alternative fuels,
that will make us independent
of foreign oil."
Still, Martinez cautioned
that drilling has been "a very
large threat" to the state and
there is interest on both sides
of the aisle in both houses of
Congress and the Bush admin-
istration to drill, especially in
the parts of Leaseho61'd81.
With rising gas prices and
higher heating costs, many
lawmakers across the country
have their sights set on Flor-
ida, he said.
At his news conference,
Martinez urged all Florida law-
makers, including Gov. Bush,
to "pull in the same direction."

The Hoosier Bar is the destination for many bikers who've
worked up a thirst while coasting up and down U.S. 41.'


The Florida Division of
Forestry is scheduled to begin
burning soon nearly 3,000
acres of brush and under-
growth throughout Engle-
wood and North Port.
The prescribed burn could
begin as soon as next week
and run through February.
Rick Christman, forest area
supervisor, said the division
plans to burn 2,750 acres on
the Myakka State Forest, an
8,600-acre swath of land in
Sarasota County, just east of
River Road.
He said smoke would be


visible to homes in North
Port, Port Charlotte and Eng-
lewood.
Residents of Gulf Cove and
Englewood East could see the
heaviest smoke.
"It won't be hard to see it,"
Christman said.
Prescribed bums clear the
forest's overgrown brush, to
reduce the risk of wildfires,
maintain wildlife habitat,
make forests accessible and
cut down on invasive species.
Christman said burns are
planned each year for the
state forest.
"We bum by the weather,
and of course you can't pre-
dict that," Christman said.


HIGHWAY fromPage lA
Venice
As all Venetians know,
when you get to Venice, U.S.
41 splits in two. Business 41 is
the -old alignment of the
Tamiami Trail that passed
though Venice, still labeled
Tamiami Trail. The other
route is known as the bypass.
,v On either road you can
find many of Venice's busi-
nesses that flourish along 41.
It continues this way for 3
miles until they meet again at
Junction U.S. 41 in Venice
Gardens.
It was a necessary split

Hoosier Bar At 748
South Tamiami Trail is the
quintessential roadhouse bar.
This is the destination for
many bikers who like to stop
in during their Sunday cruis-
es,.
The motto for the bar is,
"You're only a stranger once."
The bar was located across
the street a couple of miles
north for more than 40 years.
The new Wal-Mart pushed it
to the other side of 41. Now,
the bar is housed in a black
building that, is not easily
missed from the road with a
bright neon sign.
Manager SachaWoodward
said it's a local bar, but people
come from all over.
: "We get tourists all year
long," Woodward said.
"Sundays are our biggest day
in terms of bikes."
The original owner who
named the bar was from
Indiana. When Doug Clarke
bought the bar seven years
ago, he kept the name.
"The name' just stuck,"
Woodward said.
Tervis Tumbler At 928,
South Tamiami Trail is where
.Detroit .engineering duo
Frank Cotter and G. Howlett
Davis created the world's first
insulated tumbler in 1946,
according to Tervis Tumbler's
online site. The two com-
bined the-last three letters of
their last names and called it
Tervis.
"We specialize in drink-
related items," said Tervis
Tumbler Marketing Manager
Mamee O'NeiL 'Also, anything
beach or nautical related."
The Tervis Tumbler factory
store has all sizes and shapes
of drinkware. No matter what
team you root for, there are
tumblers for it.
"We get tourists and repeat


tourists," O'Neil said. "Some
people buy a tumbler, then
buy them as gifts for every-
body else."

provide both an environmen-
tal assessment and biological
opinion that would typically
be prepared .by federal em-
ployees.
Sarasota County will pay
Coastal Planning and En-
gineering $145,000 to prepare
the two documents, and re-
ceive a 30-percent (about
$45,000) reimbursement
from the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
through a cost-sharing agree-
ment.
Last month, county natur-
al resources officials reported
the construction price tag for
spreading about 800,000
cubic yards of sand over a 2-
mile stretch 'of shoreline had
jumped from $5.8 million to
$7.8 million because of addi-.
tional erosion and other cost
factors.
The commission's decision
to approve another $145,000
for Coastal Planning anq En-
gineering brought the firm's
contract with the county to
$991,000. When combined
with $7.8 million for con-
struction it bumped the esti-
mated price tag to $8.75 mil-

in stone.
"It's too early to know
whether we can get this pro-
ject started and completed
before the next turtle nesting
season (which begins May 1,
2006)," said Curtis Smith, a-
county project scientist.
"We're putting on a big push
to get it done now, and not
have to put it off."
If federal and state permits


do not come through in the
next couple of months, it may
be necessary to delay the pro-
ject until next autumn. The
annual sea turtle nesting sea-
son doesn't end until Oct. 31,
which would subject threat-
ened beachfront property
owners to another hurricane
season.
The county-sponsored
shoreline restoration project
will spread offshore sand
hauled in on barges along a 2-
mile stretch of eroded Turtle
Beach from about 3,000 feet
south of Point of Rocks to the
former Midnight Pass area at
the southern tip of Siesta Key.
It cannot come soon
enough for Blind Pass Road
property owners who live
immediately south of a 510-
foot seawall built by neigh-
bors.
Their homes are threat-
ened by scouring that typical-
ly takes place at either end of
a shoreline protection struc-
ture.
Funding for the project has
risen more than 30 percent in
cost since it was approved in
late 2003.
It will include a 52-percent
contribution from the coun-
ty's tourist development tax,
30 percent from a state grant
and the balance from coastal
property owners through a
special taxing district.
After the county's beach
restoration project takes
place, natural resources offi-
cials anticipate the availabili-
ty of more replacement sand
if federal and state authorities
permit dredging to reopen
the former Midnight Pass and
maintain it with periodic
maintenance projects.

Bill to help insurance companies


ew lawmakers have had more experi-
ence with hurricane recovery than U.S.
Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach.
Because of those experiences from
Hurricane Charley to Hurricane Wilma and
memories of' Hurricane Andrew Foley
believes Congress must do more to help
insurance companies protect their clients.
Foley has reintroduced H.R. 2668 and is
getting strong support from people such as
Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief financial offi-
cer.
The bill asks that insurance companies be
allowed to put a portion of their profits in
tax-deferred savings accounts that could be
used to pay for excessive losses after a cata-
strophe, such as a hurricane or earthquake.
The plan is somewhat similar to Florida's
own plan, but it allows the insurance compa-
nies to manage their own accounts rather


than give authority to the state or federal gov-
ernments.
We believe some sort of program is need-
ed and Foley's bill is a good one. Our chief
concern is that insurance companies could
take advantage of the plan to escape paying
millions of dollars in taxes.
Also, we believe there must be some sort
of mechanism in the bill that guarantees the
insurance companies use the money to pay
for recovery efforts without unreasonable
hikes in premiums for homeowners.
Foley made a good argument last week
when he spoke to the House Ways and
Means Select Revenue Measures
Subcommittee.
Hurricane Andrew, in 1992, left 58 people
dead and caused more than $15 billion in
insured losses, alone. Ten Florida insurance
companies went bankrupt. Luckily, Andrew


did not hit a huge metropolitan area such as
Miami, which just escaped the brunt of the
storm, which instead swamped Homestead.
In the past 16 months Florida has been hit
by nine hurricanes. Hurricane Wilma, just
last month, caused $10 billion in damage.
And, of course, everyone knows about the
ever-spiraling costs of cleaning up the Gulf
Coast states after Hurricanes Katrina and
Rita.
Those types of catastrophic losses are,
enough to deal any insurance company a
major blow. It is no wonder requests are
pouring in for rate increases.
In Florida, however, because of its
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, no insurance
company declared bankruptcy. The state's
program allows insurance companies to put
back some money and sets up the Citizens
Property Insurance Corporation an insur-


er of last resort.
Citizens, however, is being stressed by the
number of hurricane losses the past two
years. Major insurers have scaled back cover-
age a trend we are all too aware of here in
Southwest Florida and that has flooded
Citizens with homeowners seeking coverage.
Citizens was never intended to be a major
insurer only an emergency shelter for
those who could find no other coverage.
Foley's bill would allow insurance compa-
nies to withdraw money from the tax-
deferred account only for natural disasters.
The plan works better on a national scale,
Foley says, because, again, it does not allow
the federal government to control or admin-
ister the funds something insurance com-
panies would fight.
We believe Foley's bill deserves strong
consideration.


Is this pay



raise worth it?


BOB VEDDER
,,COLUMNIST ...

Beginning in January the
teachers in Sarasota County
will receive a 7.1 percent pay
increase for doing the equiva-
lent of 30 minutes more work
per day. That means if they
were making $45,000, which
is about average, they would
get about an additional
$1,600 for the semester.
Why are we giving the
teachers more money? There
admirably is a desire by Dr.
'Gary Norris and his staff to
elevate the training of our
school staff, There is also an
interest in paying them more
money. This is a clever way to
accomplish both.
They have fashioned the
courses such that if a teacher
has not already taken the
required English as a Second
Original Language (ESOL),
then those courses must be
taken first. After that, if you
are a teacher in a reading area
you must then take related
reading classes.
Many of the courses such
as the ESOL are online, while
the rest are taught principally
by the Landings training staff,
which has been developed for
this and future NeXt Gener-
ation courses. The cost of this
staff is projected at about $3.5
million a year.
Upon learning of the extra
training, some of the teachers
were upset of having to take
courses. So the district has
now allowed an opt-out for
those and consequently they
will not get the raise.
Many of those have taken
these courses already and
have not been compensated,
which seems a little unfair.
Thus a person that has been
motivated without incentive
does not get compensated,
but the ones who haven't
been and need motivation get
paid.
At one time the district
used a different incentive,
their jobs. Either nifove to
state designated levels or else.
Some feel that this plan is
all a way of showing the
teachers how much money
they will get if they help pass
the one-cent tax that we will
vote on in March, because in
the fall the 30 minutes will be
for a longer school day, not


training. If the tax fails, the
money goes away at about
$2,000 to $4,000 a year -
nothing to sneeze at.
That amount could have
added to it another $5,000 per
teacher if they become NeXt
Generation certified, which is
another piece of what the
taxes will go for. That on my
example would be another 10
percent.
According to the district's
projections, in the fifth year
we le spending $20 mil-
Slion.,a year for this alone.
Some of that certification will
come from these courses they
will take now, although there
will be a lot more necessary to
be certified plus classroom
certification.
So a teacher could see in
one year their salary increase
more than $10,000. Remem-
ber, our teachers are already
the third best paid teachers in
the state before any of this.
Some of the classes that
can be taken are ones that are
in specialties where' the
teachers would have had to
take to keep up their certifica-
tion, at their cost. So now we
will pay for what was their
responsibility before.
Back to the pay for train-
ing. The teachers will receive
their pay from day one and
are required to take 48 hours
of classes.
If they fail to complete the
hours, they are not required
to pay back the money. They
may receive discipline, which
could for instance be a letter
on file.
It would seem to me that
they ought to be required to
complete the work, ought to
document to someone they
completed the work and then
get paid and not before.
Otherwise, we may have
spent tens of thousands if not
more without getting any-
thing in return.
That method is how many
businesses pay for extended
employee education. Many
even require a certain grade.
It is concerning that up to
$4 million of the additional
one-cent tax that was
approved three-plus years
ago is being spent on this
without public approval. It
certainly did not go before the
tax oversight committee for
approval or questioning until
after it was budgeted and set
to be implemented.
Maybe it was an oversight
(ha, ha).
Could we have used pro-
fessional days to do some of
this training or periods that
they are not teaching where
we now pay them? Is it possi-
ble that is when the work will
be done anyway?
There is a presumption

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Don't add more to the 'soup'


Editor:
I am a faculty scientist at the University of Florida. I have
studied algal responses to nutrient enrichment throughout my
career. In short, this is not a "close your eyes and punch" kind
of battle, and Rigby's red-tide potion is a bad idea.
Orange Lake, Fla. (surface area 20 square miles) in the early
1990s had a problem with hydrilla.'To this day no agency has
confessed, but someone applied too much herbicide and killed
just about every single plant in the lake all the bad ones, all
the good ones.
It took several years for the plant communities in the lake to
recover. That was a shallow, 20-square-mile lake, tiny in com-
parison to Tampa Bay or Charlotte Harbor.
Algae is limited typically by one nutrient if you cut off the
supply of the limiting nutrient, the algae cannot grow and it
dies. So instead of adding more chemicals to the soup, we can
really do a lot of good by focusing on the limiting nutrients and
minimizing their delivery to the marine environment.
An analogy for this situation may be a farmer who overfer-
tilized his fields and now his crops have been overrun by
weeds. Should the farmer keep overfertilizing and just blast the
weeds with herbicide? Or should he take the time and effort to,
determine the acceptable fertilization rate to maintain his
crops without the weeds?

George, we'll
see you in court

Editor:
According to Kent Conrad,
a Democratic Senator from
North Dakota, the nation's
debt is $7.9 trillion, rising by
about $600 billion a year.
Those numbers are before the
baby boomers retire.
Allegedly the government
has to "renegotiate" the social
contracts it made with its citi-
zens. The baby boomers do
not wish to "renegotiate" -
but prefer suing the federal
government and the Bush
administration for punitive
damages, pain and suffering,
mental anguish" and emo-
tional distress after being
responsible, tax-paying citi-
zens who took care of every-
one else with their tax dollars.
We expect restitution, leaving


no stone unturned when the
term accountability comes
into play.
What government spends
and takes in, according to
Isabel Sawhill's book titled
"Restoring Fiscal Sanity," is
comparable to a Category 6
hurricane that's worse than
Katrina.
David Walker, comptroller
general of the United States, is
quoted: "Anybody who says
you're going to grow your way
out of this problem would
probably not pass math. We
face a demographic tsuna-
mi.",
Baby boomers ,have' the
most power in this nation -
more disposable income than
anyone else. We intend to use
it to recover our own money,
that the federal government
and the Bush administration
squandered away to create


environmental destruction,
devastation with which we
have to contend with the rest
of our lives.
Boomers demand ac-
countability of just where all
our money was spent.
George W. Bush, baby
boomers do not consider this
lawsuit to be frivolous at all.

No matter what,
let the child eat
Editor:
I cannot believe what I
read in the paper about the
child's lunch being thrown
away. What a shame.
This is not a good policy
the. schools have. As our.
nation helps feed other coun-
tries, we have trouble taking
care of our own country.
Did that food help the
garbage can's belly get full?
Why throw the food in a can?
Who did it help? If it's, a write-
off to throw the food away,
then write it off and let the
hungry child eat it.-
I know the school cannot
keep doing that, but the child
may have lost the note or just
did not know how important
it was for mom to see the
note.
He is only 6 years old. The
school could have called the
parents if it went too long. But
let the kids eat.

Democrats playing
political games
Editor:
The recent attempt by the
Democrats to interfere with
the war in Iraq by having a
session on the withdrawal of


our troops from there was
pathetic. The purpose of the
proposal was very clear from
the opening remarks of Rep.
Murtha when he delivered his
soliloquy on the withdrawal.
He cited how he drove in
an armored car between ex-
president Carter and former
House Speaker Sam Rayburn
toward the capital. What did
that have to do with the with-
drawal of troops from Iraq?
Carter could not even get the
prisoners out of Iran. It was a
Freudian response to reflect
the fact all the Democrats
wanted to do was to regain
power in the presidency and
House through use, of this
ruse.
In fact, he, the sponsor of
the bill, evidently appeared to
be unaware of the ramifica-
tions of this withdrawal. Iran
would now look upon this
weakness and proceed full
speed on its atomic arsenal;
the Middle East would be in
turmoil, engulfed in civil
wars; terrorists would have
access to weapons of mass
destruction from rogue na-
tions; terrorism would now
spread to the United States;
and democracy in Iraq would
crumble, ending in a civil war
between the Shiites and
Sunnis engulfing the whole
Middle East.
The Iraq military is rapidly
being trained to assume
responsibility for enforcing
law and order. The U.S. mili-
tary is the one that can best
judge when they have been
sufficiently trained to assume
responsibility, not Democrat
representatives.
Shame on them for being
petty politicians instead of
patriotic Americans support-

Thanksgi ving thank you


BY DEBBIE SHULMAN
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

-I spent Thanksgiving 2004
in a diner with my parents.
Three days before I had
come home to face a gun to
the head. Literally escaping
with my life, I found refuge
with friends long enough for
my terrified parents to fly
down to hold me close.
I didn't know then that I'd
been defrauded of tens of
thousands of dollars, but I did
know that I would no longer
be able to live in the house I
had built and moved 1,000
miles for just one year before.
That I was able to escape has
since been seen as nothing


short of miraculous.
During the year that fol-
lowed, the enormity of my
changed circumstances kept
me unable to articulate my
gratitude. Gratitude to the
friends who sheltered me; to
my parents; to the physicians,
police and lawyers who
helped me slog through the
painful details to ensure my
safety-; to my employer, who
accommodated police visits
and frequent absences. The
routine of a job is a comfort
when one's home life comes
undone in the most violent of
ways. I am grateful to have
had a place to come. each day
to produce, create and be
useful.


Months pass and life sorts
itself out, as it will, and new
knots appear in the warp.
Loved ones face cancer, car
accidents, layoffs. Each time
someone we love faces a new
crisis, we mourn then we
rally.
My gratitude has only
increased as I see how those I
love have overcome trials of
their own this year.
At Thanksgiving 2005,1 I am
thankful for the friends who
took me in, who cared for me
when I was unable to care for
myself.
For providing a. safe haven
for what turned into months,
for cutting much red tape, for
shuttling me from doctor to


police, for enduring the intru-
sion of my tiny band of sup-
porters, for helping me pack
up the old and unwrap the
new. Your love meant the dif-
ference between despair and
hope. I am grateful that you
have survived your own trau-
ma triumphantly. You were
dealt something frightening
and faced it head on, fiercely.
For my parents, who flew
down repeatedly on short
notice to nurse me. No parent
wants to see his child ache,
and no child wishes to be bro-
ken .before her parents' very
eyes. After a lifetime of wanti-
ng to show them I could make
it on my own, I had simply ...
to make it. I am grateful for


your strength when I could
not muster my own. You con-
tinually show me your re-
silience and steadfastness, to
me, and to each other. I can
only hope to emulate you as I
see you dispatch tragedy with
grace and courage.
For my friends, who did
not feed the gossip. I apolo-
gize for not always appreciat-
ing your concern and curiosi-
ty.
Victimization can be a
humiliation, and sometimes
it is easier to withdraw. I am
grateful for those who have
not given up on me.
The night my life changed,
my wall calendar read, "A
Great. Miracle Happened


Here," the watchwords of the
Hanukkah holiday that was
approaching.
Fast forward many months
to the day I moved into my
new place. The calendar
wished me good luck and
congratulations: "Mazel Tov."
This Thanksgiving I cele-
brate not by eating turkey, but'
by reciting the Sheheyanu
prayer, which thanks God for
"keeping us in life and for
enabling us to reach this sea-
son."
Share the gratitude.

Disgusted by
lunch policy
Editor:
I am appalled by the story
of the little boy who was
denied his regular lunch at
the Toledo Blade Elementary
School in North Port, and was
given a peanut butter sand-
wich.
I worked in a high school
cafeteria in Charlotte County,
and we never treated kids like
that.
I can't believe in this day
and age, with all our technol-
ogy fax, e-mail, phone
answering machine (I think


everyone has one now) -
that this problem could have
been solved before going to
this extreme.
Little Joseph has an older
brother, Zachary, who goes to
the same school. Why wasn't
his lunch deducted from
Zachary's account?
I didn't realize we' were
running our school systems
as if they were orphanages.
I feel this was emotional
and mental abuse inflicted
upon this little boy by adults
in the cafeteria, and that no
child should have to endure
not -having a well-balanced
lunch.
I can just imagine how he
felt having to be embarrassed
in front of his classmates. We
all know how cruel children


can be when someone is dif-
ferent.
I feel the cafeteria worker
should" be severely repri-
manded or fired for her per-
formance and the emotional
duress she inflicted on little
Joseph.
We, as a nation, feed other
country's children, but we
can't feed a balanced meal to
our own children in our
schools.
I feel that policy shouldn't
be in an elementary school,
and the staff at Toledo Blade
Elementary should be
ashamed of of themselves for
enforcing such cruelty.

was thrilled.) When, I arrived in
the Fort Myers area, I saw that
gasoline was $2.45 a gallon.
My thoughts on this were
that there must be more


snowbirds and pre-holiday
travelers and tourists heading
into Fort Myers than into
Englewood and that they
were paying the price for
every mile they went farther
south. I then went east to
Immokalee on business. To
my disgust, I found that gaso-
line was $2.65 there.
I may be fairly new to
Florida, but even I know that
snowbirds and tourists are
not flocking to Immokalee.
Don't get me wrong: I think
that Immokalee is a beautiful
area. But I am aware, as most
all of us are, that our poorest
of the poor live in Immokalee.
How is it that these people,
with so few resources as it is,
are paying 47 cents more a
gallon than we are for gaso-


line? Are the growers paying
this price for all their trucks?
As columnist Joe Giorgi-
anni stated in his article in
"Let's 'Go," I'm so angry I
could spit. How about you?

that throwing money at edu-
cation gets the best results.
There are studies that show
that is just not the case. We,
for instance, will have spent
an additional $135 million in
four years with virtually no
change in the grades and
some positive results in grad-
uation rates.
The emphasis of Dr. Norris
to get the most trained and
capable staff possible is in
itself very exciting and what I
think all of us should want. Is
this the right time or.the best.
way to do it, I don't know.
I don't think it was what we
bargained for with the tax
increase. We wanted frugal
spending. What effect this will
have on the election is yet to
be seen, but one way or the
other it probably will make a
difference.


By's Crack: It is not
whether you win or lose,
it's how.you explain it on
your tax return.


It was very exciting and a
great honor to be on the stage
with Eric Watters, Carl
Watters, Jim Magero, the
incredible dancers, and the
Country Club Estate loggers.
Eric's shows are always enter-
taining and bring in thou-
sands of dollars to help the
Venice Symphony and their
youth programs. Other than
not being in step or being
able to carry a tune, it was
great fun.
*******
Venice has always been
blessed with excellent doctors
and some of the best technol-
ogy available. I got a chance
to experience one of the
greatest detection devices for
cardiac care and other uses
that there is.
Until now the most
advanced scanners were 16
slice CT scanners, essentially
taking 16 pictures from differ-,
ent angles to give a picture of
an area. The new model at
Radiology Associates is a 64
slice CT, which incredibly


increases the definition. One
of the areas it shows a
remarkable improvement'
over is on the carotid arteries
from the heart. It can show
how much blockage if any is
present. The machine is also
used a lot for joints and lungs.
'The actual "picture" taking
takes only seconds, although
the setup and post time
makes it a half-an-hour
event, which was very rou-
tine. For those that have had
dye injected before felt a very
flush feeling. With this
process there is a new dye
that has much less of a sensa-
tion.
As two of my coworkers
have had open-heart opera-
tions in the last few months, it
was a good time to find out
where I stood. The things that
Should impact the arteries I.
was told would be smoking,
heredity, eating habits and
exercise. I was just hoping the
exercise I do would overcome
the french fries. The results
came out good so I guess the
exercise is the key.


We arq lucky in Venice to
have one of only a few of
these in the state. Around the
holidays Venice Regional
Medical will receive one at the
Health Park. We'll then be
doubly lucky.

Today's Ism: FAILURE IS
NOT AN OPTION. It comes
bundled with the software.

As our new, press comes
more on line, I hope you have
noticed the additional pages
in color. Page 3 will almost
always be in color as will oth-
ers. We now can print our TV
book in two runs instead of
three, which really saves us
time. We are hoping this may
allow us to update the book
even more as the networks
occasionally change what
theywere going to run and we
print ahead of those changes.
We should know that soon.

You had to be very proud
of our high school football
team as they almost came
back from a 18-point deficit


to win in the semifinals of the
state.

It wa sad to hear'ofS'im
HeTrroin pa sirg away- this
week. Sam has been an active
person in our communities
dating back to the 50s. He has
been a customer of our com-
pany before we even owned
the paper. He amazingly kept
a youthful look, even when I
saw him at a local restaurant a
couple of weeks ago.
He has been very involved
with., the development of
Warm Mineral Springs over
the years. For a long time he
was elected to the airport
board and held other posi-
tions of importance.

TO YOUR HEALTH!
In this era of escalating health
costs, the public is coming to

accept the fact that it is preferable
to maintain good health than to
ignore it and risk a health crisis.
In accepting responsibility for
one's own health, there has been a
decided shift toward increased
exercise, improved dietary habits,
and stress reduction. As the
world's 'oldest, drugless healing
profession, chiropractic encou-
rages this approach toward
disease prevention. By eliminating
restrictions on the flow of nerve
energy as it courses through the
spinal column on its way to
virtually every area of the body,
the doctor of chiropractic hopes to
free up the body's natural
recuperative powers. The more the
public knows about the
chiropractic approach to
maintaining health, the better it
can make informed decisions
about everyone's number one
priority, good health.
We are Drs. Dan Busch and
Catherine Martin and we are
pleased to welcome the readers of
.the Venice Gondolier Sun to our
column. Please call 941-412-3800
and let us help you gain relief
from any discomforts you may be
experiencing. We provide safe,
drug-free, and gentle chiropractic
care for the entire family. At
TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC
HEALTH CENTER, through the
use of conservation, non-surgical,
drug-free care, we provide
treatment from acute symptomatic
relief to the wellness care. We
offer massage therapy and have 2
licensed massage therapists on
staff. We're located at 1214-C
Venice Ave. East.
P.S. Nerve energy, emanating from
the brain, either directly or
indirectly controls every organ
and function in the body.

Manta Rays surprise Indian hoopsters


Lemon Bay's big third quarter
run hands Venice, Cavallaro
first loss of season.

BY GARY BROWN
STAFF WRITER

Lemon Bay High sophomore Ed
Laughlin got his game together in the
third quarter, just in time to help the
Manta Ray boys basketball team rally
for a 57-49 victory Saturday over visit-
ingVenice.
The 6-foot-2 Laughlin scored 8 of
his 13 points in the third quarter as
the Manta Rays (1-1) outscored the
Indians 22-5 to erase a 19-16 halftime
deficit and turn it into a 38-24 lead
going into the final period. Venice (1-
1) never got closer than a six-point
deficit in the final quarter.


"We got all started playing really
well in the third quarter," Laughlin
said. "I really like rebounding the
most about basketball."
"Ed played really well in the third
quarter," Lemon Bay coach Tom
Catanzarite said about his talented
sophomore. "We started to quicken
the pace. In the past, we haven't
always had a lot of quickness. This
year, we're quicker than we have been
in the past.
"Jordan Reed is quick. So is Alex
Walker."
Reed, a junior, scored 11 points,
including three 3-point field goals. He
also stole the ball twice, including
once when he batted the ball away
from aVenice player, picked it up and
passed it to center Matt Piloto who
made a driving layup.
Walker added six points and
grabbed five rebounds. Piloto, a 6-4


Learning as


Lady Indians top
Lecanto behind strong
second half.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Losing a load of .talented
players to graduation and
with just one senior on the
team, Venice High girls varsity
basketball dove into the 2005-
2006 season.
There have been ups and
downs in the early going, but
new coach George Stritz will
be happy just seeing the girls
improve game-to-game.
Stritz was smiling follow-
ing Saturday's 48-38 victory
over visiting Lecanto on day
two of the Thanksgiving
Classic.
The Lady Indians
improved their record to 3-2.
"Our goal is to get better
each game," said Stritz.
"Wins and losses aren't
important right now. I mean,
everybody wants to win, but
we just want to be ready and
playing our best when the
district playoffs come
around."
Understanding the offense
- breaking presses, where to
be, where to pass, getting the
best look possible is a big
part if it. Also executing the
defense properly is a must.
"Man-to-man defense is
our bead and butter," Stritz
said.
Venice trailed by a point at
halftime, but stepped it up on
both ends in the third and
fourth quarters to seal the
win.
Venice outscored Lecanto
12-5 in the third session to
lead 31-25 heading into the
fourth.
Junior forward Andrea
Krankowski, a blue-collar
worker down low, scored
eight of her 12 points in the
third quarter.


The Lady Indians
stretched the lead out to 36-
27 early in the fourth as Jamie
Lane hit a three-pointer and
Krankowski sank a short
jumper. Lecanto got back into
it quickly with a couple of
treys.
The game stayed close -
38-35 until Samantha
Worthington converted on a
pass from Diana Mehserle.
The Lady Indians then broke
the pressure and Krankowski
fed Worthington for a layup
making it 42-35.
Junior forward Worthing-
ton scored all eight of her
points in the fourth quarter.
Lane had all, seen of, her
points 'in the second .half..
Lane also did a good job run-
ning the offense as point
guard in place of the injured
Natalie Gaudreau.
Venice will play host to
Port Charlotte on Tuesday
night.

Mehserle led the Indians with 12
points. George Stritz scored 11 points
and Tom Collins added 10 for Venice.
Venice led the entire first half, grab-
bing a 13-5 first-quarter edge before
the Manta Rays began to cut into the
Indians' edge in the second quarter.
Stritz scored five of his 11 points to
spark Venice in the opening quarter.
But the Manta Rays started to take
advantage of their quickness in the
second quarter. Piloto canned two
field goals andWalker also scored four
points as the Manta Rays slowed the
Indians down.
"Our defense played pretty well in
the first half but not so well in the
third quarter," Venice coach Steve
Cavallaro said. "Our offense is not as
far along. It's still in a state of progres-
sion."


Venice plays at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at

quarter on a layup by Natalie
Gaudreau. She sat the second
half with an injured ankle.
Venice did an admirable
job handling the Lakewood
pressure in the first half. The
Lady Indians had trouble
scoring however, as they
trailed 9-4 after one quarter
and 24-15 at the half.
Sophomore forward Chloe
West played a strong second
session, scoring six of Venice's

It was the third quarter that

Lakewood was able to get a

The Lady Spartans
outscored Venice 14-3 in the
third session to take a com-

Pine View student in Idol top five


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


Chelsea Bolyard, a ninth-
grade student at Pine View
High School, has made it into
the top five in the Sarasota
County High School Idol
singing contest.
"It's kind of like 'American
Idol' ... but the judges aren't
mean to you," Bolyard said.
"It's open to anyone in high
school."
With a strong background
in singing and dancing, Bol-
yard seems like an obvious
pick for this competition.
"I started piano lessons
when I was little," she said.
"That's when we first realized
I could sing."
Since Bolyard was 8 years
old she has been fine tuning
her talent through school
activities.
"I've been in plays ...,
singing and acting," she said.
She has also been dancing
for nine years. She is current-
ly in the Pine View High
School Chorus.
Recently Bolyard has bean
studying with a voice coach.
"Franklin Skidmoore," Bol-
yard said. "I started with her
maybe a month before the


competition."
Apparently Bolyard's extra
work has paid off.
Singing her way
to the top
"She had to make it
through four rounds of com-
petition to make it this far.
Contestants choose their own
songs and use prerecorded
instrumental music to sing
with," said Leanne McIntire,
manager of The Education
Channel.
The contest began with a
bundle of hopeful high
school students auditioning
in front of a small panel of lo-
cal judges. Like '"American
Idol," the judges then slowly
narrowed these students
down to 10.
The top 10 competed in
front of a live audience Nov. 7
for a spot in the top five.
Bolyard sang her way into the
top five with, "My Favorite
Things."
The remaining contestants
will now compete for a spot in
the top three, and one will be
named High School Idol.
"The final is April 6, 2006,
at Booker HighVPATheater. It
will be open to the public, $5
at the door," McIntire said.


The third-place winner
will receive $100. Second
place will receive $200 and
first will receive $300. All
three contestants will get a
photo package from Bryn
Alan Photography, gift certifi-
cates from New York Hair,
pairs of theme park tickets
from Double Edge Media and
a professionally produced
demo CD.
High School Idol is spon-
sored by The Education
Foundation of Sarasota
County and will air on The
Education Channel begin-
ning in January.
Other students who com-
peted in the top 10 are:
Jenna Anderson and
Lauren Chase from Riverview
High.
Kaela Bratcher and Anya
Kirchner from Booker High.
Lindsey DeCarlo from
North Port High.
Allison Kindle, Sean Mc-
Daniel and Erica Wilkes from
Sarasota High.
Shannon Markell from
Venice High.

Now that Chelsea Bolyard has made it into the top five, she will move on to compete for the top
spot in Sarasota County's High School idol.


State Farm raising homeowners insurance rates


BY DAN MEARNS
STAFF WRITER

State Farm Florida Insur-
ance Co. has been given ap-
proval to increase homeown-
ers insurance rates by an
average of 8.6 percent across
Florida. Locally, however, the
increase is likely to be less, a
company spokesman said
Wednesday.
,,,,The average overall in-,
crease for Charlotte County
homeowners with State Farm
policies will range from 4.8
percent to 7.7 percent, ac-
cording to figures supplied by
the company. The average
increase in Sarasota County
will range from 2.9 percent to
7.7 percent, while in DeSoto
County, the overall average
will be just 0.1 percent.
"Many areas of the state
show a zero percent in-
crease," State Farm Florida
spokesman Jose Soto said.
"There are many factors
that can cause differences of
rate increases within a given
area, factors such as location
of home, age of home and
number of claims the policy-
holder has made that are not
related to hurricanes or other
catastrophes."
Soto said the rate increase
had nothing to do to with this
season's hurricanes and that
State Farm had applied for it
Aug. 17.
"Noncatastrophic claim
costs have dramatically in-
creased in recent years," Soto
said. "Contributing factors
include increased costs for
building materials, labor,,
medical expenses, legal ex-
penses and more expensive
home features and furnish-
ings."
Soto said the company's
average noncatastrophic


paid-claim cost increased 17
percent in 2004 and the aver-
age claim size increased 45
percent. Such claims include
.fire, theft, water damage,
lightning and liability.
Soto cited National Asso-
ciation of Home Builders sta-
tistics showing that nation-
wide, lumber prices rose
about 27 percent in 2004. He
said the price of scrap steel -
used in nails, wire mesh and
other building materials -
rose 80 percent, while the cost
of cement went up 6 percent.
"For consumers, that
translates into higher prices
for nails, drywall and boards
and higher bids from contrac-
tors," Soto said. "For example,
In Orlando, the hourly labor
rate for roofers rose 64 per-
cent from the second quarter
2004 to the second quarter
2005. In the same period, the

cost of shingles increased as
much as 45 percent."
State Farm divides the
state into 99 zones based on
zip codes. Following are the
company descriptions of the
local zones and the rate in-
creases therein:
Zone 82
Sarasota County -
Beginning at the northern bo-
undary ,of the county and
southward all areas west of
the east bank of the Intra-
coastal Waterway to Midnight
Pass, thence southward all
areas west of the Myakka
River to the Southern bound-
ary of the county.
Charlotte County All
areas West of Myakka River
and Charlotte Harbor.
Overall change: 4.8 per-
cent. (Excluding wind cover-
age, 4.7 percent)..


Zone 83
Sarasota County Re-
mainder of county not in
Zone 82.
Overall change: 2.9 per-
cent. (Excluding wind cover-
age, 7.9 percent).
Zone 79
Charlotte County Re-
mainder of county not in
Zone 82.
Overall,cganpe: 7.7 per-
cent. (Excluding wind cover-
age, 16.1 percent).
"If it costs mote to do busi-
ness in a certain part of the
state, the rates are going up
more there," Soto said.
In Broward County, premi-
ums could be raised for some
customers by as much as 40
percent. Rates could go as
high as 35 percent in Palm
Beach County and 37.9 per-
cent in Miami-Dade County.


Some people questioned
the necessity of the increases
approved Tuesday by the
Office .of Insurance Regula-
tion. State Farm Florida raised
overall rates 5 percent in
February and 1.7 percent in
September of last year.
"I'm inclined to say that
I'm disappointed that they
granted them the total


amount of the increase that
(State Farm Florida) asked for,
because I thought we asked
them very credible issues that
they should have taken into
account," said Steve Burgess,
state insurance consumer
advocate.

tributed to this story.

Abandoned lot auction .planned


r -F


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

The sale of more than
:2,000 abandoned lots in
* North Port is scheduled to
' begin Jan. 19.
; Doug Dennison, assistant
',vice president of Fisher
.,Auctions, has toured some of
..the available lots in North
.Port, and he knows that not
all of them are in pristine con-
dition.
"Some are great, and some
are not so great," Dennison
,said at a recent Chamber of
Commerce Networking at
Noon luncheon. "They're in
areas where you need a truck
to get to them, or there are
lots of potholes."
That's why the company
wants to remind everyone
that the lots will be sold "as
is." Potential buyers-should
inspect the property before
the auction, so they are aware
of any issues the lot may have.
SSome lots may not be con-
nected to city utilities, for
example.
i Three large blocks of lots


will be sold in phase one of
the auction. All three of these
groups will be offered at auc-
tion between Jan. 19 and Feb.
20. Phase one will be open to
Internet bidders as well as to
those who want to submit"
written bids. Lots will be sold
individually during this
phase.
Phase two of the auction
will include all lots not sold in
phase one (all remaining
unsold lots from the three
large groups). These remain-
ing lots will be sold at alive
auction to be held Tuesday,
Feb. 28, at the North 'Port
Performing Arts Center at
North Port High School on
Price Boulevard.
These remaining lots will
be sold in groups ranging
from five to 100 lots. Internet
bids will also be accepted on a
live, fully interactive site. All
lot sales will be coordinated
through Watson Title In-
surance Inc.
The city of North Port is
splitting the anticipated $70
million proceeds with Sara-
sota County with a small por-


tion going to the Sarasota
County School Board for local
schools.
Fisher Auctions has al-
ready set up aWeb site in con-
junction with Sarasota Coun-
ty that details some aspects of
the lot sale. At press time, the
site is incomplete, but cur-
rently includes a draft map of
the areas where lots are locat-
ed, as well as the phases dur-
ing which lots will be sold.
A list of the lots and their'
addresses, all documents
necessary for completing a
transaction, as well as a more
detailed map currently under
construction, will be available
both on-line and at the com-
pany's temporary offices at
the old North Port Yacht &
Country Club building by
Dec. 10.

SKayakers stranded on island


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Rough seas and winds
whipping through the area
sent three kayakers ontO a
small island Monday and offi-
cials on a search.
Joseph Mullen, 74, Edward
Engle, 68, and Cheryl "Muf-
fin" Johnson, 52, were found
safe, Monday night, stranded
on Sand Fly Key, a small
island near Bull Bay across
from Boca Grande, according
to Bob Carpenter, public in-
formation officer for the
Charlotte County Sheriffs Of-
fice.
Engle, who spoke for the
trio, said winds suddenly
picked up so high, they were
unable to paddle back to their
destination, Grande Tours
Kayak Center.
"We were out for an after-
noon paddle and we couldn't
get back," Engle said.
Engle said high. winds, up
'to 40 mph, and blowing into
,their faces, slowed them so
much they made a decision
*4to camp on the island.
"We had to go about 5
'miles," Engle said. "It would

have taken much too long to
get back."
All three are experienced
sea kayakers and they had
emergency equipment on
their boats to keep warm and
to build a fire.
Engle said also they had
water, but no food. And the
hand-held radio they were
*carrying was not strong
enough to reach anyone
nearby.
"The main concern was
that we hadn't'contacted any-
one," Engle said. "Our fami-
lies got concerned around 8
or 8:30."
Carpenter said Engle, Mul-
len and Johnson left Grande
Tours in Placida at around 10
a.mn Monday morning. Capt.
Marian Schneider, owner of
Grande Tours, noticed the
kayakers had not returned by
dark, and notified the sheriff's
office shortly after 6 p.m.
"(Capt. Marian) realized
we weren't back," Engle said.
"It was getting late. She was
the one who alerted the au-
thorities."
Schneider said she was
concerned, but she also said
they were trained marathon


kayakers and she thought
theywere probably OK, *
"In a way it wasn't (scary),"
she said. "They were three ex-
perienced kayakers. They
were in training for a mara-
thon trip. They do many,
many miles."
But Engle said the winds
got so strong, they decided
camping on Sand Fly Key
would be better than trying to
return in the dark.
Dep. Greg Sutton and Cpl.
Brent Hertenlehn of the sher-
iff's office's Marine Patrol
were called out. The U.S.
Coast Guard and the Lee
County Marine Patrol were
also notified.
"The weather was terrible,
seas ,ere 3 feet, winds were
35 to 40 knots, and water was
breaking over the back of our
patrol boat at times," Sutton
said.
Around 9 p.m. Engle said
the marine patrol came in
sight. "We spotted them com-
ing and got them on the radio
and they saw us with the
light," Engle said. "We were
never in any real danger.
Many kudos to the sheriff's
department."

How to un-stick the doors that bind

Are your doors sticking and binding?
Doors often bind because the opening somehow shifted,
moving it "out of square." Usually, the cause is moisture -
sometimes in the ground, under your house rather than in
the door frame itself. The wet ground expands, and part of the
foundation moves up or down, creating an uneven floor.
Thus, frames shift and doors bind.
Often you can skip planing and sanding by simply adjusting
the door hinges. Pull out the hinge pins one at a time, and bend
the rungs the opposite of the way you want the door to move.
A little trial and error, and you will soon get the idea.

'Tis the sea-

son, be jolly

Now that Santa Claus came
to town last night during the
Venice Holiday Parade, every-
one needs to be on their best
behavior. Sue Hebert is sure to
have her name near the top of
Santa's list for making sure the
2005 State Champion Lady
Indians had a great place in
the parade.
Also near the top of the list
is J.T. from Matthew Currie
Ford for graciously providing
the convertibles for the girls.
Special thanks to Mike Di-
Giacomo, The Sons of Italy
and everyone else involved in
this terrific project. You made
our day merry and bright.
Welcome to Venice
Attorney Ann Thompson
welcomes SheliKerkering to
her staff. Sheli, her husband
Todd and 4-year-old son,
Orion moved here recently
from Ocean Side, Calif.
The young family loves be-
ing here and the great feeling
of a small community. Todd
recently retired from the Ma-
rine Corps after 20 years.
Shell is excited about all the
neat things there are to do in
town.
Do blondes have more fun?
This is the question Phyllis
Calucci plans to ask her
grandson Brad Neumyer
when he comes to Venice for
Christmas. Brad lives in Saco,
Maine, and is a star soccer
player. In a show. of unity,
every member of his team
recently bleached their hair.
Grandma Phyllis has seen
pictures but can't wait to see
Brad in person.
Vee on Via
Vee Garry-Chiulli gets
around. She and her husband
Larry Chiulli are at most
events in town taking photos
or filming for her show, "Vee
on Venice." This busy lady
helps do the newsletter for
Epiphany Cathedral and plans
special events for Stein Mart.
Vee the grandmother lights
up when she talks about her
granddaughter Via Viteri, a
freshman at Cardinal Mooney
High School. Via has been
playing the violin for more
than eight years. She often
plays at Masses in church and
recently, performed for Newt
Gingrich when he was in Sara-
sota.
It sounds like Via is a star
just like her grandmother.
Just call him Mr. President
When planning a city
event, Edward Hoefert at city
hall is often the one to give all
the information. I learned
Edward is president of the
Florida Association of Occu-
pational Licensing Officials.,
This group of 250 meets quar-
terly and has its annual meet-
ing in Orlando.
Their purpose is to educate
new people about statutes to
help make the licensing process
a little easier. For information,
call Edward at 486-2666.
Pat on the back
Bill Vanderstein, owner of
Bella Luna Cafe gets a cheer
from me for helping lead the
merchants of Miami Avenue
to work at developing their
own identity as Miami Avenue
Antiques Row. It's great to see a
leader taking the reigns and
adding some new pizzaz to
downtown Venice. Bill credits
other, Miami Avenue mer-

BYJEREMYROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER .


'He wasn't there for the
roulette wheel or for theTexas
hold' em. Dr. Robert Felman,
45, came to Reno for the
Scrabble.
He was one of 700 partici-
pants in the 2005 National
Scrabble Championship.
It's not as easy as it sounds.
"I played 28 games in four
days," Felman said. "Each
game's an hour, you play,
seven games a day, for four
straight days. It gets a little
wearing."
In the end a champion was
crowned.
Felman started his Scrab-
ble experience at a young age.
"I started playing when I
was a kid with my mom,"
Felman said.
He didn't play seriously
until 1981 when he was living
in Boston.
"I was working in a lab
therd and I joined a club,"
Felman said. "I played there
for nine months. That's when
the actual dictionary for
Scrabble had just come out."
The first national tourna-
ment was held in 1980.
Felman learned some of the
words from the official dictio-
nary and then quit until
about five years ago.
"I found a Scrabble com-
puter disk you could play."
Felman said. "I just started
playing against a computer."
Having a medical back-
ground doesn't help Felman
too much with the game.
"You usually can't use'
words with more than eight
or nine letters," he said.


"Medical terms are kind of
limited because they're long."
Felman achieved his rank-
ing by playing in local tourna-
ments that took place in
Tampa, New Port Richey and
Fort Lauderdale,
"It's like the chess federa-'
tion. There's a rating system
based on whom you beat. If
you play a good player and
you beat him your rating will
go up. If you lose to a higher-
rated player you're not going
to drop as much as you would
to a lower-rated player."
"They stuck me in the sec-
ond best division just because
I told them I played the com-
puter. I won four games out of
15 and since then I've played
about 10 local tournaments.
Last year I went to the nation-
als for the first time."
Last year, in New Orleans,
Felman placed 55th in the
second division, out of 130
people.
* This year, the division got
tougher.
"This year I played in the
same division and made 76th.
place out of 108 people. They
tightened up the require-
ments to get into divisions by
ratings. Thirty of those people
playing in Division 1 ended
up in my Division 2 this year.
So it's really tougher competi-
tion."
The rating system goes up
to 2,000 and the higher the
rating the better you are. It's
just a part of the intense com-
petition that takes placed
during the tournament.
With that many players,
Felman said there were some
interesting individuals.
"There are some real char-

acters in the game from all
walks of life," Felman said.
The winner of Felman's
division had autism with
Asperger Syndrome. Felman.
had met him previously,
online, and talked to him
about Scrabble and other
things.
To keep competition stiff
there are plenty of rules and
procedures for playing.
"They play with a timer,"
Felman said. "There are rules
about how you pick the tiles,
the types of tiles you use and
the official dictionary that
you have to judge your words
by, so anything you play has
to be in there. If not, it can be
challenged off."
The official dictionary is
used by many players to learn
as many of the words as they
can. Some of the best players
memorize word lists and
books that have all the three-,
four- and five-letter words.
Felman is fairly serious
about tuning up his game.
One device Felman uses is a
computer that will generate
all the words you. can make
with the letters you have,
although you can't use it in a
tournament, Felman said it's
a great training tool.
Felman's attraction to


Scrabble is somewhat of a
loaded question.
"I was a good speller," he
says. "I didn't win any spelling
bees."
Felman said the game
attracts a lot of people who
are obsessive compulsive
people.
"There are some autistic
people there and some peo-
ple who just have a knack for'
memorizing words," he said.
But there's more to it than
just the words.
"Half of the game is strate-
gy, too," Felman said. "It's
mathematical and works with
percentages. It's more than
just knowing words. You've
got to know when to open up
the board or close it. There's a
lot of strategic things."
"You keep track of all the
letters that have been played,
so you know what's left in the
bag and if there's a'Q' in there
that you don't want to pick
you're not going to put a
bunch of letters down and get
stuck with that at the end of,
the game. There's a lot of
strategy involved and kind of
an obsession.",
Felman plays on the
Internet for practice in the
evenings.
There are several Web sites,


but he plays on the Internet
Scrabble Club. It has about
1,000 players logged on it at
any time.
"There are clubs nearby in
Tampa and Fort Myers, but I
don't have the time to drive
an hour.
T here are all levels of
players. Last year they filmed
it and put it on ESPN. They
guy who won it last year was a
pianist from California. This
year it was a 32-year-old guy
from Portland, Ore.
"If you win you can win a
lot of money. The national
champion gets $25,000 that's
sponsored by Hasbro."
Felman would likes the
possibility of starting a local
Scrabble club and using it to
enrich local schools.
"I'm looking into a couple
possibilities to get a local club'
going," Felman said. "I need
to find people who want to
take the game seriously and
have people show up.
"There's anotherthing call-
ed the School Scrabble pro-
gram.where kids from schools
up to eighth grade compete
against other kids. I've been
thinking of doing that, but
I've got to find a teacher to
sponsor me and find the time
to do it."


4'


Jim Peters and Robert Felman met at the tournament. Peters
and Felman are two of the best players on the west coast of
Florida.


Competitors face off to determine who is the number one
Scrabble player.


Robert Felman gets ready to take on another opponent at the 2005 Scrabble tournament in
Reno, Nev.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING
A.., ; "


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. For the past 5 years I
have protected myself from
loud noises yet my hearing
'continues to decline. Can
you suggest anything .which
will reduce or stop my
continued hearing loss?
A. Most causes of hearing
loss are never known.
Medications and diseases
associated with small vessel
disease are the major
concerns. Arthritis, diabetes,
and heart disease are all
associated with a higher
incidence of hearing loss.
Smoking, which creates free
radicals, has been associated
with increasing the
probability of hearing loss.
Anti-oxidants, such, as
vitamin E have been
associated with the
prevention of noise induced
hearing loss. Unfortunately,
even if you live healthy and
take all precautions possible,
the majority of us will slowly
develop hearing' loss. The
inner ear hair cells do not
replace themselves and once
they are lost, their function
cannot be recovered. This is
why an annual hearing
examination by a certified
Audiologist should be part of
every persons health .plan.
Call the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Center at 492-4327
today to schedule your
audiologic assessment.

Sarasota Conservation Foundation launches fundraising campaign


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota Conservation
Foundation held its second
annual meeting Nov. 13 on
Casey Key. The local land trust
entered its third year by
announcing an $8.6 million
fundraising campaign. The
foundation has already
received pledges equaling
more than $7 million for the
campaign. The meeting was
attended by more than 100
members and highlighted the
2-year-old organization's
progress. Since its inception
in 2003, the Sarasota
Conservation Foundation has
taken strides to provide a
local option for land conser-
vation. The foundation, head-
quartered in Osprey, has
raised more than $9 million in
private donations to date. The
funds are used exclusively to
protect Sarasota County's
bays, beaches and barrier
islands.
"This meeting is an oppor-
tunity to announce new pro-


grams and update members
on the progress we have
. made over the past year," said
Albert Joerger, president of
the Foundation. "This
fundraising campaign was
inspired by the people of
Sarasota County. I think they
have recognized the need for
waterfront land protection.
The foundation provides a
local option for those inter-
ested in protecting the future
of Sarasota County, each and
every dollar is used for local
conservation," he said.
The annual meeting also
highlighted the $6.6 million
grant received earlier this year
from the Florida Com-
munities Trust, the largest
given to a local land trust.
The grant money will be
used to purchase a 4.3-acre
waterfront parcel on Little
Sarasota Bay in Osprey.
The property includes a
historic mansion and will
serve the public as a launch-
ing point for kayaks and row-
boats.

Web sites offer health information for seniors


JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
I have spent many hours on
the Intemet looking for answers
to my health questions and
have found it to be very frustrat-
ing. There are so many different
Web sites out there I don't know
which ones I can trust. Can you
point out some reliable, senior-
friendly health sites for me? I'm
67 years old and not too savvy
on the computer and could sure
use some help. Doubting
Thomas
Dear Doubting,
It's wise not to believe
everything you read espe-
cially.when it comes to .


health-related information
on the World Wide Web.
Here's what you should
know.
Trustworthy sites
The Web can be a great
resource when you want to
learn about a specific dis-
ease, a health condition or
even how to stay healthy.
But among the thousands
of Web sites that offer health-
related information today,
there are many that present
myths and half-truths as if
they were facts.
As a rule, health sites
sponsored by the U.S. gov-
ernment (.gov), nonprofit
health organizations (.org) or
university medical centers
(.edu), make up the most
reliable sources of health
information on the Web -
because they're usually not
supported by for-profit com-
panies, such as drug or insur-
ance companies that may be
trying to sell you their prod-
ucts.
To find out who's sponsor-
ing a health site and where


the information is coming ,
from, click on the "About us"
link on the sites home page.
Senior-friendly sites
While there are dozens of
great health-related Web sites
that provide quality informa-
tion, here are a few sites that
I've found to be particularly
senior-friendly. And, some
that offer a nice variety of
reliable health information
that can help serve you.
National Institutes of
Health (nihseniorhealth.gov):
Developed by the National
Institute on Aging, this site
makes aging-related health
information easier to get by
providing short, easy-to-read
segments of information and
simple navigation. It also
offers a large text option and
talking function that reads
the text aloud.
MedlinePlus (medline-
plus.gov): A service of the '
National Library of Medicine
that offers a user-friendly
directory of health topics
with information on more
than 700 diseases, conditions


and treatments. It also pro-
vides lists of hospitals and
physicians, a medical ency-
clopedia and a medical dic-
tionary, extensive informa-
tion on prescription and
nonprescription drugs,
health information and from
other reliable sources, and
links to thousands of clinical
trials.
Mayo Clinic (mayoclin-
ic.com): Provides reliable
information on a wide vari-
ety of aging topics, health
conditions and treatments. It
also offers a collection of
informative health tools,
including health decision
guides, self-assessments,
interactive health calculators,
quizzes, slide shows and
videos.
'* Center for Disease
Control (cdc.gov): Provides
up-to-date information,
resources and interesting
facts on all types of health
issues, diseases and lifestyle
risk that can affect older
adults.
National Health
Information Center


(healthfinder.gov):
Developed by the U.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services this is an
easy-to-use resource guide
that provides links to reliable
health information from over
1,500 government agencies,
nonprofit and professional
organizations, and universi-
ties. You won't find any ques-
tionable health sites here!
Savvy tips
Health and medical infor-
mation changes all the time
so check the date that infor-
mation was published to
make sure it's current. And as
always, use commonsense
and good judgment when
evaluating health informa-
tion online and remember to
talk to your doctor about
your findings.
Free health publications
For those who don't'have
access to the Internet, there
are many government agen-
cies and nonprofit health
organizations that.provide
published health materials.


One resource is the
Federal Citizen Information
Center, which offers dozens
of health publications
including the new "Savvy
Senior Health Kit," a free
packet of health information
for older Americans and
those nearing retirement age.
To order a free health kit,
visit savvysenior.org or call
(888) 878-3256. Another
resource is the National
Institute on Aging, which
offers a large variety of health
publications, most of which
are free.
To find out what's avail-
able call (800) 222-2225 or
visit niapublications.org.

Twenty years later, another movie puts Kenya in the spotlight


BY MARY ANN ANDERSON
GUEST WRITER

Even now, in the year or
two since my first visit to
Kenya, it is the colors of Africa
that I remember most. Even if
I forget all else I ever saw in
Kenya but just one'thing, it is
the amalgamation of so much
color that will always remain
with me.
Every so often an event
takes place that reminds me
of my visit there, something
that conjures back images
that I know will never go
away. In this particular
instance, I have just put
down John le Carre's "The
Constant Gardener," a mas-
terfully written novel of sus-
pense and intrigue partially
set in Kenya.
With the release of film
version of "The Constant
Gardener," starring Ralph
Fiennes and Rachel Weisz,
Kenya is once again thrust
into the spotlight, just as it
was when "Out of Africa"
was released some 20 years
ago.
As a travel writer, I'm often
asked which is my favorite
place on Earth. My first
answer must always be
Georgia, especially on the
farm where I grew up very
nearly dirt poor, with nothing
surrounding our home but
tall pines sighing in the


breeze, dusty red clay roads,
and parched, endless fields of
crops. After all, Georgia is my
home, my heart.
But my next answer is
always, always Kenya.
When I was a child, my
family and I would some-
times take the two-hour drive
down to the coast at Jekyll
Island. I vividly recall sitting
on the grey stretches of
beach, closing my eyes, and
hoping that when I opened
them I could see all the way
across the Atlantic to Africa, a
continent so far away, so
exotic, so spilling over with
creatures and beauty and
people so mysterious that I
could only imagine the
grandeur of it all.
And decades later, when I
made my first journey to
Africa, I was not disappoint-
ed. Kenya was everything I
had imagined and more.
There is no other place like
it in. the world. Some places
may be more beautiful, some
more historic, some more
ancient, some more charm-
ing. But Kenya truly has no
equal.
This is a country that
Mother Nature has touched
and blessed with only the
best of her offerings, especial-
ly in all those marvelous col-
ors: the warm rusty hues of
the dust of the Maasai Mara,
the pure gold in the eyes of


the first lion I ever saw out-
side of a zoo, the black-and-
white stripes of herds of
zebra, the pale pumpkin
waters of the Mara River, the
lavender explosion of blos-
soms of the jacaranda, the
deep green of'the umbrella
acacia, the soft pink of flocks
of flamingoes.
Bougainvillea, so prized as
an exotic plant in the United
States, grows wild and pro-
fuse in Kenya, often in masses
of gemstone color of
amethyst, ruby, opal, garnet,
citrine, and sapphire. And the
sky of an African sunset liter-
arily seems afire, striated in,
every shade of red and orange
imaginable crimson,
carmine, burgundy, ginger,
carrot, and even fuchsia.
But Kenya is much more
than sight and color. In fact, it
is an assault on all five senses.
Once you leave Kenya,
you'll never smell diesel again
without thinking of the big,
mad mess of Nairobi and its
endless circus of trucks, cars
and minivans spewing black
smoke. The city also smells of
smoldering fire and of corn
roasting in roadside kiosks,
while Lake Naivasha, where
portions of "Out of Africa"
were filmed, smells sweet and
green, almost like fresh
apples. The game parks of the
Maasai Mara, Amboseli,
Meru, Samburu, even with


the scent of animal dung and
dust in your nostrils, smell
like dry, unshucked corn. The
mist of the Indian Ocean,
bordering Kenya on the east,
is salty, fresh and clean.
The tastes of Kenya
explode on your tongue.
Carnivore, perhaps the most
famous restaurant in all of
Africa, is only for the brave
and definitely not for the veg-
etarian. In a bizarre turn of
events, their menu items
often include crocodile,.
ostrich, zebra, giraffe and
wildebeest, animals you have
just photographed perhaps
only hours earlier for their
beauty. The dawa, the "offi-
cial" drink of Kenya, is all
mint, 'vodka and sugar.
Kenyan coffee, farmed in the
highlands near Mount Kenya,
is brewed dark and strong,
and Kenyan wine, made from
pawpaw, is ... well, let me put
it this way- Drink it at your
Sown risk.
Nowhere else will you hear
sounds like those of Kenya.
The hungry groan of a lion as
it prowls through the bush,
just steps away from your
tent, is both tantalizing and
startling. The call of the horn-
bill echoes melodically
through the jacaranda. The
high chatter of crowds of
monkeys and baboons
climbing through stands of
acacia is unsettling, but the


sounds of millions of hoof-
beats of the wildebeest as
they storm into the Mara
from the Serengeti is one
you'll never forget.
The buzz of tiny bush
planes taking off one after
another from Wilson Airport
(mentioned a number of
times in "The Constant
Gardener") is' a sight to
behold. But the best sound of
all in Kenya is the intense still-
ness, at times as sharp as a
razor's edge,' and at other
times broken by the hacking
cough of a nearby leopard, or
even screams of a mortally
wounded beast. But this is
Kenya. It is to be expected.
Your sense of touch is
heightened .in Kenya, as the
air almost crackles with some
sort of unseen energy. You feel
the hot dust as it swirls across
the plains, the warmth of a
summer rain shower on your
face, the smoothly chiseled
surface of a trinket box carved
from soapstone, the softness
of a blanket woven in by
gnarled hands of an old
Kikuyu, the intricate bead-
work of jewelry. Music and
dance are a definitive part of
Kenya's history, and it's very,
very -easy to feel lost in the
beat of a ceremonial Maasai
dance.
Yes, Kenya is absolutely
beautiful, and it is sometimes-
very difficult it is for all


practical purposes still the
Third World yet it is one of
the most stirring places you
will ever visit.
If you go
Getting there: British
Airways offers easy flights

properties scattered through-
out Kenya, from Lake
Naivasha to Lake Victoria to

Florida Humanities Council helps bring 'Road Scholars' to Selby Library


Selby Public Library has
been selected to host two
programs this winter as part
of the "Road Scholars" pro-
gram sponsored by the Flor-
ida Humanities Council
(FHC). Florida folk art expert
Gary Monroe will speak at
10:30 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 10.
Photographer John Moran
will appear at 10:30 a.m.,
Saturday, Jan. 14,2006.
Gary Monroe is the author
of "Extraordinary Interpreta-
tions: Florida's Self-Taught
Artists" and "The Highway-
men." From sculptures in


wood and tin to paintings on
grocery bags and old pizza
boxes, folk art displays a raw
emotion and independent
spirit that typically disregards
artistic rules, training and tra-
ditions. Monroe gives a slide
presentation surveying the
eclectic and exotic creations
of Florida folk artists, while
challenging assumptions
about art and aesthetics.
John Moran's book is "Jour-
nal of Light: A Photographer's
Search for the Soul of Flor-
ida." For 20 years Moran has
traveled the Sunshine State


with his cameras, capturing
natural Florida as it must
have appeared to Ponce de
Leon and other early strang-
ers in paradise. Narrating a
slide show of his remarkable
collection of landscape pho-
tography, Moran reflects on
his quest to capture the soul
of one of the most pho-
tographed states in the coun-
try.
The FHC and the Univer-
sity Press of Florida have
combined forces to assemble
a group of Florida's best
scholars and authors. From


folk art to cracker culture to
historic landscapes, these
speakers will engage audi-
ences on a wide array of
Florida history and heritage
topics. FHC will provide ma-
jor funding for the Monroe
and Moran programs, with
the Friends of the Selby Pub-
lic Library providing $100 in
additional funding for each
speaker.
For more information,
contact 861-5000 and ask
about the Gary Monroe and
John Moran programs at
Selby Library.

Hot Dogs and Cool Cats Goes


Hollywood a success for HSSC


STAFF REPORT

The Humane Society of
Sarasota County's Nov. 12
fundraising gala, Hot Dogs
and Cool Cats Goes Holly-
wood, was one of HSSC's
most successful events ever,
grossing more than $110,000.
All proceeds will help HSSC
care for the 4,000 abandoned
pets it shelters each year.
About 350 guests in daz-
zling Hollywood-themed at-
tire filled the Serendipity
Ballroom in Sarasota. To
enter, supporters walked the
red carpet as flashbulbs pop-
ped and screaming, fans de-
manded their autographs.
Celebrity lookalikes -
including Barbara Streisand,
Diana Ross, Elvis, Audrey
Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe
and John E Kennedy made
the rounds while guests
placed bids in a 250-plus item
silent auction, sampled mar-
tini slides and socialized.
After dining on surf and turf,
guests bid generously in a
fast-paced live auction, then
danced to the sounds of
Funky Bizness.
The event's major spon-
sors were Veterinary Neuro
Services, LLC; The Fertility
Center & Applied Genetics of
Florida; and The Paradigm
Group. Media sponsors
included The Herald-Tribune,
Style, SRQ, ABC-7 and
Comcast.
Catherine Gordon Ellis
and Chris Voelker were co-
chairs; State Rep. Donna
Clarke and Dr. Christine
Caulfield were honorary co-
chairs. Committee members
included Jodie Biter, Lou
Anne Campbell, Nancy


The importance of microchipping


MONICA LEIGHTON
PET COLUMNIST.

It's Christmas Eve, your
family and friends are coming
to your house to visit and as
you open the door the family
pet darts right out from under
your feet, or your on a walk
and the dog sees a rabbit it


just can't help but chase. As
you try to stop the dog from
dragging you down the road,
your leash or collar breaks.
Most of us have been in a sit-
uation similar to these. The
fear of losing your beloved pet
one of the worst feelings a
person can have. These situa-
tions are the reason why it is
so important to have your pet
microchipped.A microchip is
a permanent device that can
help identify your pet. in the
event the pet becomes lost or
stolen. The microchip is a
rice-sized capsule that is
painlessly injected between
the shoulder blades. It is given
much like a vaccination and
most pets do not react when
the chip is inserted. Each
microchip is encoded with a
uniqfhe number. The chip
remains inactive until read
with a scanner. When the chip


is scanned, the scanner sends
a low-frequency.radio signal
to the chip that then trans-
mits that pet's unique code to
the scanner. The microchip
distributor is then contacted
with the identification num-
ber encoded that is linked to
the owners' personal infor-
mation, and the owner can
then be contacted. The cost of
microchipping varies, but
generally runs about $25,
which is well worth your.
piece of mind and the safety
of your pet.
Monica Leighton is the

Sitting and the president and

Sitters Association. She has

Hospital for the past eight

local pet community.

Why adopt rather than buy?


FRANCIS BATTISTA
PET COLUMNIST

There are lots of good rea-
sons to adopt rather than buy
a pet. Here are a few of them:
* Buying a pet can easily cost
$500 to' $1,000 or more.
Adoption costs range from
.$50 to $200, depending on
whether the pet comes from
the city shelter or a rescue
group that has spent money
on boarding, vets and groom-
ing.
* You're getting more for your
money if you get a mixed
breed. Based on the well-
established principle of
"hybrid vigor," a mixed-breed
animal is likely to live longer
and cost less in vet bills than a


pure breed. Many purebred
dogs are prone to developing
health problems ranging
from breathing difficulties to
hip dysplasia to an enlarged
heart.
* A pet purchased from a pet
store is a complete unknown.
And, once you walk out of the
store, you are onyour own -
most pet stores' don't provide
any support if you have ques-
tions or problems with your
new pet. When you adopt,
especially from a rescue
group, you know what you are
getting because the group has
a history on the animal. The
rescue group will also help
you through the familiariza-
tion period because they are
invested in providing a good
home for that animal.
* When you adopt a pet, you
are saving a life. When you
buy a pet, you not only deny a
homeless pet a home, you are
supporting an industry that
thrives on short-changing the
welfare of animals. Puppy
and kitten mills (which sell to
pet stores) are in business to
make a profit, so they chum
out puppies and kittens as
fast as they can. These ani-
mals are often in ill-health and
have problems like poor
socialization skills due to lack


of human companionship
and genetic defects due to
inbreeding.
* If you adopt, you get your
choice of any age. Though
puppies and kittens are cute
and cuddly, they can also be a
handful. An adult or older pet
may be a better "fit" 'for you.
For example, adopting an
adult dog who's already
house-trained and knows
basic commands is often
much easier than adopting a
puppy, who must be taught
these things.
* You get just as much love (if
not more). An adopted pet is
every bit as loving, intelligent
and loyal as a purchased pet,
even if he or-she is an adult or
an older.animal.
For all of these reasons,
adopting rather than buying
is pretty much a no-brainer.
As Homer Simpson would
say, "Doh! I'll take the adop-
tion ... and a doughnut,
please."

Thousands of needy pets awaiting rescue still
roam New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.


BY BARBARA WILLIAMSON
BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL SANCTUARY


Three months after
-Hurricane Kat i4,lJ@ousan s
of homeless pets.still cling t
life on the streets, waiting to
be rescued, according to an
assessment revealed by Best
Friends Animal Society.
The organization, which
runs the nation's largest com-
panion animal sanctuary, is
launching a petition drive on
behalf of these pets and their
displaced families.
"Compassionate citizens
have already given their
money to this cause. Now
we're asking them to give
their voices, too, by signing a
petition to.ensure that these
dogs and cats in the Gulf
Coast region are not aban-
doned and that donated
money be spent for what it
was intended," said Paul
Berry, Best Friends' director of
operations.
Most national organiza-
tions suspended rescue oper-
ations more than a month
ago:. But three months after
the hurricane, independent
rescuers report that thou-


sands of displaced pets,
belonging to people who
have lost their homes, are still
clinging to life, and that their
situafitm-'is 'critical. Many of
these pets are'in destroyed
and abandoned areas where
food sources such as garbage
cans are not available, and
marly of the structures these
pets are using for shelter will
soon be bulldozed.
"We've been working on
the front lines of Hurricane
Katrina relief efforts since late
August, and have not given
up," said Berry. "Our emer-
gency rescue shelter outside
of New Orleans still has up to
600 animals on any given day
and brings in up to 40 ani-
mals a day from volunteer
rescuers who continue to
work in the field."
Berry said the Best Friends
assessment, which was con-
ducted last week, has con-
firmed some urgent and dis-
turbing facts about the ongo-
ing need for rescue efforts.
The report cites interviews
with local animal control offi-
cials, veterinarians, rescue
agencies and volunteers
across the region.,


"People all over the coun-
try donated tens of millions of
dollars to rescue these ani-
mals," said Berry. "All it takes
now is a commitment from
the animal welfare organiza-
tions to finish the job they
undertook." ,
- rr' Thrt -.1' cfiY, ii ff ht
includes:
* Providing volunteers to con-
tinue rescuing displaced pets
-still alive on the streets,
encouraging volunteers to
continue rescuing pets still
alive on the streets, and pro-
viding staging areas to get
them to safety
* Conducting a national
adoption drive for all pets not
reclaimed by their families
"Working together, we can
do better than simply allow-
ing these pets who have clung
to life for so long to become
the next generation of strays
who will reproduce and ulti-
mately be euthanized," said
Berry.
Best Friends is asking
everyone who donated
money to the rescue effort to
sign a petition urging nation-
al animal welfare organiza-
tions to continue the rescue
work as long as these trauma-
tized family pets are still alive.

"We are inspired by Mayor
Nagin's plan to rebuild a bet-
ter New Orleans," said Berry,
who is a native New
Orleanian. "If funds remain
after the rescue efforts are
complete, they should be
used to build a better New
Orleans for companion ani-
mals. Once the remaining
pets are safe, we can join
together to invest in pro-
grams that will radically
improve the quality of lif6 for
animals in the Gulf Coast
region."
These programs would
include:
* Low-cost, high-volume
spay/neuter facilities
* Neighborhood no-kill shel-
tering and adoption capabili-
ties
* Affordable health .care for
pets of low-income families


* Model legislation to end dog
fighting and related animal
abuse
"This was an unprecedent-
ed tragedy for people and
their pets," said Berry.
"But for local humane
groups, once the rescue
efforts are complete it can
now be a unique opportunity
to create a new reality for
companion animals.
"So many people have
given their time, effort, and
money to the cause. Now they
all need to add their voice to
how the remaining money
should be spent. That's why
we're launching a petition
drive to support this vision for
the animals."

Disturbing the peace


Editor's note: Nathan Van
Coops, a former Venice resident,
recently volunteered in Duraznal,
Mexico. This is part one of two-
part essay he wrote on his experi-
ences.
BY NATHAN VAN COOPS
GUEST WRITER

There was a time not long
ago when I was content. Mine
was a pleasant and easy life,
near a quiet beach. It was
peaceful, comfortable and
safe. There are some things
that are just not meant to last.
I found myself pained with
a little thorn somewhere, a
voice in the back of my mind
that kept asking, "What are
you really doing? Whom are
you helping?" The thought
tossed about in my con-
sciousness, surfacing in occa-
sional calm moments like a
piece of previously sub-
merged flotsam. It would pop
up to make its noisy ripples in
my usually placid existence.
This thought wasn't going
away on its own. It wouldn't
cooperate and agree to be
ignored. Eventually I did what
we all do when we can no
longer stand the nagging, I
acquiesced. I don't knowifmy
expression of surrender was
/ to God or to some irrepress-
ible part of my own self but I
knew no other road was left
that would bring me any
peace. 'All right, I'm going," I
muttered, "Are you happy
now?"
The first week of August
found me bouncing and jolt-
ing about in the bed of a bat-
tered pickup truck as it
wound its way up into the
rural green mountains of the
M.exican state of Oaxaca. tt
had been a long road to that
moment, literally and figura-
tively. I had signed myself on
with a Catholic volunteer
organization, waded through
the rigorous application
process, toiled all winter to
raise the required funds and
then at the start of summer,
completed the month of
required training. I had com-
mitted myself to three
months of service up in the
mountains. I was going to
help people.
Everybody knows Mexico
has a problem with poverty.


PHOTOS COURTESY OF NATHAN VAN COOPS


During this three-month assignment in Mexico, Nathan lived and worked with the people of Duraznal.


It's no big shock if you men-
tion it to someone. I was no
exception of course, but I
don't think I had any real
comprehension of this fact till
the day my duffel bags and I
were dumped off in the dusty
center of a tiny pueblo called
San Jose El Duraznal. That
day I began to live it.
Little power for change
The 1,600 residents of
Duraznal and their rustic
homes are scattered in a
sprawling fashion out from
the town municipal building.
A town center solely by nature


of its size and its paved bas-
ketball court, the municipal
building, its gazebo and a
long row of dimly lit rooms,
act as both playground and
meeting area for the local res-
idents. During my time there
the rooms became a place for
classes with the kids, and the
long wooden benches that sat
under the eaves accommo-
dated the women who would
come in the afternoons to
sew with one of the other vol-
unteers. I had joined.a couple
from Spain who had been to
Duraznal the previous year,'
and had returned to do

another month of service
with the community. The
three of us were fed by the
local women of the town and
housed ina sort of store room
one of the women had gener-
ously offered.
The Spanish couple had
been housed in the municipal
building 'the previous year
but the annual change of
local authorities had left the
building in the hands of men
who cared far more for their
drinking than the needs of
the townspeople. Our pres-
ence was not looked on kind-
ly by these men and they


rarely missed an opportunity
.to complain about our use of
the rooms and the cost of the
electricity to illuminate the
few dusty bare light bulbs we
would employ on rainy after-
noons.
The townspeople held lit-
tle power for change.
Confronting the authorities
or remedying the other faults
of the pueblo seemed a dis-
couraging'if not impossible
task. Few of the other men
worked nearby. A large num-
ber lived independently of
the town and;: their families
for much of theweek, and the

local teenage population was
nearly nonexistent. All were
gone to the cities to try to find
work, or quite possibly just to
escape. One or two of the
local kids attend the Salesian
secondary school at
Matagallinas, but most will
have only their work and
"Tele-Secondaria," a well-
intentioned but fatally flawed
system of secondary educa-
tion through television.
Comprehending
the situation
Finding myself in this envi-
ronment was more of an
adjustment mentally than
physically. My body initially
complained of the hard
wooden planks I slept on and
the insect population that
delighted in leaving me red
and bumpy, but after a short
time these things ceased to
matter. The fly-ridden out4
houses and washbasin
bathing became second
nature much faster than I
would have expected.,
Washing all my clothes by
hand on a stone slab was
tedious enough to draw out a
few muttered expletives:
especially after the long rains
that left everything I owned
caked with mud, but I strug-
gled more with comprehend-.
ing the situation than witH
enduring it. :
There seemed to be such a
disparity between the smiles
on the faces of the children I
taught and played with every-
day, and the conditions they
existed in. I found it very
encouraging that my time
with the people there was
marked mainly with laughter
and joy, but I wondered about
the injustices that must be
occurring that this hardship
of theirs is allowed to contin-
ue.

!Council, appointed by Gov. Jeb Bush.

improve the system for the citizens of

Charlotte County Visitor's Bureau
staff members attended several major
marketing events recently..
.Rebecca Allen, public relations
manager for the Visitor's Bureau, par-
ticipated in a four-city "media mis-
sion" Nov. 7-11, sponsored by VISIT
FLORIDA, the state's tourism market-
g organization. She joined a contin-
gent of other professionals represent-
ing several Florida visitors' bureaus -
including St. Petersburg/Cleanvater,
Lee County and Central Florida -
who traveled to Indiana and Ohio to
promote their respective destinations.
-Allen had an opportunity to meet,
representatives of the Indianapolis
Star, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Colum-
bus Dispatch, AAA Home and Away
magazine, Indy Mlen's Magazine, End-
less Vacation magazine, and AOL City
Guide.
Sean Doherty, the Charlotte
bureau's sports marketing manager,
participated in the Travel, Events and
Management in Sports (TEAMS) Con-
ference and Exposition in Fort Laud-
erdale Nov. 2-5. Also attending the
event were more than 100 event own-
ers, ranging from representatives of6
the Amateur Athletic Union to the
NCAA to USA Weigh lifting.
Through one-on-one appointment
sessions and networking opportuni-
ties, Doherty was able to promote


Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf Islands
,as a destination for sporting events.
These opportunities provided away to
create andpmaintain relationships vi thh
potential clients, as well as determine
what events may be, a good fit for
Charlotte County facilities and gen-
erate a significant economic impact to
the area.
The Visitor's Bureau recently pro-
duced its'first guide to sports and
recreational facilities to allow organi-
zations to easily visualize and learn
about the types of venues available for
sporting events in Charlotte County.
Distributed at TEAMS, the guide will
serve as a Bureau resource and pro-
motional/informational tool to be
used at sports conferences and trade
shows. It will be available in hard-copy
booklet format, on CD, and on the
Bureau's Web site.
One of Allen's ongoing goals is to
encourage outdoor writers to com-
pose articles about the natural beauty
:of Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf
Islands. She had an opportunity to do
that at the Florida Outdoor Writers
Association annual conference in
Kissimmee Oct. 26-29. Through a
series of meetings, she brought atten-
tion to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf
Islands' many nature-based activities
and recreational opportunities.
The FOWA provides scholarships to
students pursuing journalism studies.
To fund this effort, FOWA sponsors an
auction, and the Charlotte CountyVis-
itor's Bureau participated by offering a
three-day vacation getaway package
that was auctioned for $350.
The FOWA conference followed
Allen's attendance earlier in the
month at the annual conference of
the Southeastern Outdoor Press Asso-
ciation in. Decatur, Ala., Oct. 4-7.
These types of activities increase edi-
torial coverage of the Charlotte Har-
bor area, while furthering relation-

.cent over October 2004.
"Everyone is talking about how
