I RS in on raid



on Venice



doctor's office


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

More than a dozen FBI
and IRS agents swooped
down Thursday from as far
away as Tampa to seize rec-
ords from the Dermatology
Institute of Venice office of
Dr. Steven J. Wasserman, 1111
Avenida Del Circo.
"We were executing a
search warrant on a white
collar crime case," said Tam-
pa FBI spokeswoman Carol
Michalik. "Other than that, it
is an ongoing investigation
so I cannot tell you anything
more."
While records were seized
from Wasserman's office on a
search warrant, the spokes-
woman would not identify
Wasserman as the target of
the investigation.
Michalik also said she
could not reveal whether
Internal Revenue Service
agents were involved in the
seizure of records from Was-
serman's office.
However, local police offi-
cials said that IRS agents
were involved in the raid.
Wasserman also has an
office in Englewood. It is not
known whether.agents visit-


ed the Englewood office.
Wasserman could not be
reached at home, his Venice
office or his Englewood office.
On standby
Venice Police Deputy Chief
Dan- McGoogan said he was
notified by the FBI early
Thursday morning to "be
on standby to assist" federal
agents by keeping the public
and the media from getting
nosy at the site where agents
were working.
McGoogan said that is
about as much as he knows
about the investigation.
FBI agents were seen load-
ing boxes of what appeared to
be records into a large, white
box truck. There appeared to
be at least 30 boxes in the
truck. The truck left about 6
p.m. after being at the scene
all day.
It is not known what kind
of records were being taken.
Local authorities familiar
with' federal procedures said
the IRS generally does not
get involved with investiga-
tions unless millions of dol-
lars are at stake.

than habeas corpus.
An avid road bicyclist, Park
decided to take the plunge
and embark on a cross-coun-
try trip this past summer.
It took 50 days, starting at
the mouth of the Columbia
River in Oregon, winding
through mountains, plains,
prairies and ending in Ports-
mouth, N.H.
The experience was exhil-
arating and breathtaking,
both literally and scenery-
wise.
In the end, Park surprised
even himself with his en-
durance and said it was one of
the most memorable ex-
periences of his life.
"For me, a vacation was
five business days and week-
ends on both ends," Park
recently told a Kiwanis Club
gathering during a meeting
at Buffalo Bill's Restaurant in
the Venice Holiday Inn. "By
day six or seven, I began to
relax a little bit. By day eight,
I started to worry about the
office again."
Something had to give.
"I needed to do one of
three things." said the Venice
High and Yale graduate.

God bless you


Did you ever wonder why
people say "God bless you"
after someone sneezes?
Why don't we say "Got a
cold?" or something less secu-
lar?
Well, it seems back in 590
A.D., the plague was begin-
ning in Europe. Pope Gregory
the Great ascended to the
papacy just as the killer pan-
demic began. Medicine of the
day being ineffectual, Pope
Gregory asked people to
invoke God's intercession.
Whenever someone
sneezed, those nearby said
"God bless you" in hopes the
poor soul would survive.
The practice continues to
this day in many nations.
Good thing, too, with all this

County considering

tougher towming laws

Sarasota County's towing ordinance addresses
emergency calls from sheriff's deputies.
It may be expanded to control aggressive
operators who tow from private parking lots.


ordinance that set the rates
at $125 for hookups and $4 a
mile for emergency towing
are a separate issue, and citi-
zens need to be protected
from operators who wait for
someone to illegally park.,
Most of the opportunistic
towing by operators who
compete for calls from Siesta
Village store owners is appar-
ently taking place in, and
around, a couple of shopping
strips along the east side of
Ocean Boulevard that have
limited parking.
Randy Upman, the.owner
of Upman's Towing in Sara-
sota, described the towing of
illegally parked cars as an
"open game" the commission
should regulate, and suggest-
ed a flat fee of $125 for every-
one would discourage aggres-
sive operators.
The commission called a
halt to the hearing when
members of the legal and fis-
cal planning staffs couldn't
agree on whether the "non-
consensual towing" language
in Florida statutes could be
applied to the towing of cars
from marked spaces in pri-
vately owned parking lots.

BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

New Sarasota County reg-
ulations to rein in aggressive
tow truck operators who
charge exorbitant rates for
the removal of unauthorized
cars from parking lots in
Siesta Village may be added
to those that currently ad-
dress emergency calls from
sheriff's deputies.
On Tuesday, the county
commission continued a pub-
lic hearing on the recovery,
towing and storage of vehic-
les until the afternoon of Dec.
14, so county lawyers and fis-
cal planners can sort out the
legal definition of "noncon-
sensual towing."
The county's towing ordi-
nance is scheduled to sunset
hext June, and the hearing
was advertised to adjust a
standard set of rates charged
by area towing companies
that respond to 'calls from
the sheriff's department.
Towing practices in Siesta
Village unexpectedly came up.
"One of the large towing
companies is removing a high
number of cars from private
lots and, depending on who
the owner is, charging be-
tween $175 and $220," report-
ed Troy Syprett, a Siesta Key
Village Association board
member.
"We understand business'
owners have a right to protect
their property" he explained,
"but some of these towing
companies sit in the 7 Eleven
Food Store parking lot, wait
for cars to park in marked
spaces, then pull them around
behind the building and drop
them."
Open game
Syprett also described in-
stances of tow trucks block-
ing cars parked in marked
spaces so they can't move,
and towing company employ-
ees cautioning employees in
village businesses not to cross
the street and warn drivers
so they won't mistakenly park
in marked spaces.
"People who are visiting
the area don't understand our
rules," he said. "Tow truck
operators shouldn't be en-
gaging in these types of ac-
tivities because it is a reve-
nue source. If we allow this
to continue in Siesta Village,
itwill drive people away."

er of Flagship Towing in

Neighbors unhappy with neighborhood business


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WAITER


Local residents and Sara-
sota County officials are con-
cerned Mira Matchin is run-
ning a medical therapy and
resort business from three
Warm Mineral Springs houses.
Matchin is scheduled to
appear before a Sarasota
County special magistrate. If
the special magistrate finds
Matchin hasn't complied with
the original order entered in
February, Matchin could pay
fines of up to $1,000 per day
for the; first violation, and
$5,000 per day for a repeat
violation.
Papers filed earlier this year
by the County Code Enforce-
ment division found Matchin
guilty of violating zoning laws.
The order forbids her from
having employees or cus-
tomers come over to conduct
business. Her home is zoned
as "residential single-family."
Matchin was contacted last
Friday and said she was in
New Jersey attending to her
medical practice. She declin-
ed to comment further be-
cause she has retained an
attorney However, according
to public records in the New
Jersey Medical Examiner's
office, no, Dr. Matchin is
licensed in the state.
Calls to Matchin's attorney
were not returned.
In a Feb. 4. Sarasota County
Code Enforcement special
magistrate hearing, Matchin
denied many times that she is
running a business from her
home, saying she invites only
family and close friends.
However, according to the
Florida Department of State,
Matchin is the sole manager-
member of a corporation,
Panseonat Miracle -LLC, at
12092 Granada Drive. This
address is behind her 416
Hacienda Street home, and
the buildings are connected
by a walkway in the back-
yards. The business was in-
corporated on Aug. 19, 2004.
Matchin denied under oath
she is running a business in
Warm Mineral Springs, but
Magistrate Susan Chapman
ordered her to stop operating
any business out of her home.
Medical spa
According to, an Internet
search, Panseonat has a Web
site: www.panseonatmiracle.
com. The site says, "Panseonat
Miracle is a resort with a med-
ical spa." The Web site states
that two weeks cost $850 and
includes a "medical consul-
tation with a professional
.doctor for the best use of the
mineral lake" and airport ser-
vice, a room for two with a
private bath, access to the
mineral lake and three dietary
meals a day. Wellness. services,
including massage therapy,
acupuncture :and body talk
are available on the property.,
Code enforcement officer
Richard Kuntz said he began,
reinvestigating Matchin fol-
lowing continuous com-
plaints by residents.
On Nov. 6, Kuntz said he
spoke with an elderly couple
as they were walking from
Matchin's house with at least
10 other people.
S"They said they were from
Dallas and were staying here
for four days," Kuntz said.
He said before he could
ask them about their accom-
modations and whether they
paid money to stay there,
Matchin arrived and denied
she was running a business
from her home.
On Nov. 12, he saw that
all people leaving Matchin's
home were driven by a van
to the nearby Warm Mineral
Springs resort.
'No doubt'
Matchin's neighbor is con-
vinced she is still running her
business.
"There is no doubt that she
is still charging these people
to stay there (at her home),"
said Eugene Kapica, a former
Warm Minieral Springs resi-
dent, who rented a home


near Matchin. "I asked why
they took my trash and not
hers. I was told because there
were hypodermic needles in


the bags and they couldn't
pick them up. This lady is
bringing these sick people
down and tells them that she
can cure them.",
Kapica testified he had
seen "more than 500 people"
in the three-month period


-~

ii


leading up to the Feb. 4
hearing.
"It is a residential neigh-
borhood, but it looks like a
resort area," Kapica said.
"People are always coming
and going, stretch vans pick-
ing up and dropping off


IN


people. And every other
week, new people arrive."
Kapica said he spoke with
many of the people staying
with Matchin.
Roger and Carol Crane
arrived at their Peridio Street
home Nov. 30.


The Cranes said they
rented to Kapica because he
needed somewhere to stay
while he is building his new
home. They wanted some-
one to watch their place
while they were in Michigan.

RIDE from Page 1 A


RAID from Page IA


SUN PHOTO BY CLAUDE LEWIS
Venice resident Jim Park talks about his cross country bicycle
trip at a recent Kiwanis meeting at the Holiday Inn.


"Retire, have a nervous break-
down or take some time off."
Park had been riding a
bicycle for many moons.
"I like to see things on my
bicycle," he said. "It's much
better than from a car. I
decided to do something a
friend had done ride
cross-cotuntr on a bike. I had
just got a very nice recum-
bent bike. I signed up for the
trip."
Park wasn't going out on a
3,000-mile trip without being
well-prepared,
"Before I left I tried to ride
200 miles a week," he said. "I
spent alot of time in the gym
on the bike machine.T turned
the resistance way up. You
might have seen me riding
Border Road over the inter-
state back and forth about
50 times a day."
Riding through the Rocky
Mountains would be much
more demanding. In fact, the
entire trip would be.
"They told us the ride was


inherently risky," Park said.
"Ten percent would sustain
injuries and wouldn't be able
to finish."
It rang true on Park's trip,
as one bicyclist fractured a
collarbone in a fall, another
had a lumbar concussion
and still another was run off
the road and broke his hip.
"Most people were in their
mid 40s to late 50s," Park
said. "A lady who did it was
68 years old. There was a guy
74 years old who rode with
us. His children told him'
'You can't do that, you're too
old.' He got the last -laugh.
He did it."
During night stays at
motels, the riders had the'
chance to bond with each
other.
Park, like the other riders,
was able to get in a zone once
he started running per-
haps like the endorphins
that kick in with a "runner's
high."
"It's relaxing zen-like,"


he related. "You push with
your left foot, you push with
your right foot, 10 million
times."
Park averaged 80 miles a
day, some days more, some
less.
In the mountains, Park
pedaled his recumbent bike
(the type where the rider is
closer to the ground) about
5 miles per hour uphill and
it raced close to 50 mph
downhill.
"I lost 20 pounds over the
course of the trip," he said.
"You burn 5,000 calories per
100 miles. You have to bring
plenty of fluids and food
when you ride. You're con-
'stantly replenishing your
body."
Especially when it's dry
and-hot.

'Empire'
One person who knows
Wasserman' said he has built
an "empire" from his medical
practices in Venice and in
Englewood.
The person described
Wasserman as "fabulously
wealthy" and a man who
surrounds himself with, ad-
visers and confidantes.
One of Wasserman's prop-
erties in Venice is an 8,700
square-foot mansion on
Sunset Drive with 10 bed-
rooms and 10 baths. The front
yard is a Roman-style garden
flanked by columns, statuary,
fountains and palms. Not
surprisingly, the property is
on the Gulf of Mexico.

records, the 2005 value of
the house, land and im-
provements is more than $2
million.
Records search
An online search of Flor-
ida Department of Health
records showed Wasserman
has an unremarkable back-
ground.
Much of the information
reflected in DOH records is
provided by the physician
himself.
He began practicing med-
icine Jan. 1, 1977
Wasserman has no crim-
inal history, verified through
Jan. 4, 2005, according to the
DOH records.
He also has had no disci-
plinary actions taken against
him, nor has he had any
liability claims, by' self-
proclamation.
Wasserman chose not to


provide much information
for the record about his activ-.
ities regarding memberships
or service on special boards.
Providing such informa-
tion is not mandatory nor
should lack of such informa-
tion be construed in a nega-
tive manner, the DOH Web'
site states.
Wasserman was the ring
doctor for boxing matches at
the Venice Sports Arena in
1999-2000, according to
Venice Gondolier Sun Sports
Editor Claude Lewis.
Lewis also wrote an article
that stated Wasserman was
one of the charter sponsors
of three Olympic-style box-
ing shows held in summer
2000 at the arena.

Lemon Bay League

pitches to EAPAB


BY SHELLYJANKE
STAFF WRITER


Members of the Lemon
Bay League pitched the goals
of their nonprofit, communi-
ty-based organization to the
Englewood Area Planning
Advisory Board Thursday
morning.
The Lemon Bay League is
primarily concerned with
the management of the Lem-
on Bay watershed and the
growth of the Cape Haze area.
It will also act as a "part-
nership" with local advisory
committees, homeowners
associations and businesses.
"All of these groups we
reach out to are interested
in establishing a community
vision in our geographical
area," said LBL member
Steve Suau.
The group is the brainchild
of the South County Alliance
and\ the West Charlotte
County Civic Association,
said Lemon Bay League co-
founder and EAPAB board
member Dr. Bill Coy.
"Wq got together and


decided that we were both
doing the same thing," Coy
said. "Then businesses be-
came involved."
And because the league is
not bound by government
entities, members said they
form an invaluable "grass-
roots" group of 60 home-
owners associations and
businesses, he said.
The LBL's primary goals
include planning and imple-
menting public transporta-
tion in the greater Englewood
area; hurricane safety and
preparedness; and improving
dispatch communication be-
tween local police, fire and
EMS departments.
The EAPAB was receptive
to the objectives of the
Lemon Bay League, which
will hold its first town hall
meeting at the end of
January.
EAPAB chairman Kreg
Maheu said he would like to
see the league progress its
agenda.'
"My hope is that this board
can somehow assist them,"
Maheu said.


RIDE fromPageIA


105 degrees and 17 percent
humidity," Park recalled. "We
rode around Mount Hood
but I never saw it because of
low clouds. We spent two
days going through Jackson
Hole and the Grand Tetons."
Part of the trip was on
interstate highway.-
"We had a two-hour
course on how not to get
squashed like a bug," Park,
said.
Sometimes the bicyclists
get buzzed by logging trucks.
"They think we're anti-
logging," reasoned Park.
The folks running the trip
rode in motor vehicles and,
made sure everyone was all
right.


"They'd give you water if
you ranout. They'd help you
if you got a flat tire."
When Park and the others
rode into Newr Hampshire,
they were much stronger
people, physically and men-
tally.
"It wasn't that hard," Park
surmised. "The' average per-
son can do this. I probably
won't do it again this summer,
but maybe the following
year. They have different
routes you can take so you
can have different scenery."
And the biggest thing Park
discovered?
"I learned a lesson," he
said. "I'm going to take a
month off every year."

job to push the district agen-
da.
Key to her success is get-
ting support from fellow
school boards around the
state. The Florida School
Boards Association -meets
annually to establish its own
platform. Without FSBA
approval, education-related
bills fight an uphill battle.
Seeking flexibility in meet-
ing the state's constitutional
class-size amendment is just
one of the issues the district
and FSBA will jointly pursue
when the Florida Legislature
convenes on March 7.
In anticipation of session
the district adopted a posi-
tion last month to change
the class-size amendment,
the same stance adopted
last Thursday by FSBA.
In 2002 Florida citizens
voted to amend the state
constitution. All classrooms
will contain no more than 18
students per class in grades
K-three, 22 students per class
in grades four-eight, and 25
students per class in grades
nine-12 for core classes by
2010, under the amendment.
"W6 got a lot of pressure
to lead the charge in support
of the class-size amendment,
but we said no," Benson
said. "We decided this year
we could look at it more
objectively. We've had a few
years of working under the
CSA. There's not (the same)
political pressure to act.
"We didn't really know if it
was. in best interest of stu-
dents. (We thought) maybe
we can live with it if looked
different."


Last year the school dis-
trict and FSBA asked the
state to fully fund the man-
date. That didn't happen,
Benson said.
While the state funds edu-
cation based on the number
of students taught, there were
unintended consequences,
like requiring new classroom
space to accommodate the
same number of kids spread
out in more classrooms.
Schools have relied heavily
on portables to take up the
slack, but are being short
funded on capital costs, they
say.
Poison pill
This year the educational
establishment is taking an-
other tack seek flexibility.
Districts are hoping to re-
duce costs by recalculating
how the district comes up
with its average class size.
Instead of hard and fast
limits on the number of stu-
dents allowed in each class
by grade level, FSBA and the
school,/district want the lim-
its to apply using a district-
wide average, not to exceed
five kids beyond current re-
quirements, Benson said.
The flexibility would grant
districts leeway to have some
upper level grades that serve
more students, while main-
taining smaller class sizes at
the elementary level, and
reducing the use of portables.
The idea was floated earli-
er this year. Since then HJR
447 and an identical resolu-
tion on the Senate side have
been introduced. It makes the
changes sought by FSBA and


Sarasota educators, but also
includes what might be con-
sidered a poison pill.
The resolution adds con-
stitutional language requiring
minimum expenditures on
students. At least 65 percent
of total school district operat-
ing expenditures would have
to be spent on classroom
instruction as defined under
statute. The governor would
be allowed to grant partial or
full waivers. .
Benson said it's too soon
to tell whether the classroom
expenditures section of the
bill is a deal breaker, but it
clearly needs to come out of
the bill.
Unintended
consequences
Benson points to a study
called Tough Choices re-
leased in October byI the
LeRoy Collins Institute. The;
report concludes Medicare
and the class-size amend-
ment are so expensive that
the state of Florida will either
have to come up with new
revenues to pay for them or
change the laws to make,
them less expensive.
Another unintended con-
sequence of the class-size
amendment is its impact on
the quality of teachers. Hir-
ing more teachers means
digging deeper into the pool
of less-qualified candidates.
"Sarasota County has a
good pool of teachers to
choose from," said Benson.
"That's not necessarily the
case statewide. (Yet) I'm con-
cerned with hiring high
quality teachers. You are hir-


ing people you might not
have hired before. I'm not
saying that's good or bad.
But there is such a high
demand. There is less quality
of instructors than we've
selected in the past."
Then there's the $64,000
question: Has the class-size
amendment resulted in im-
proved instruction?
No one can say for sure.
Student achievement for
Sarasota County students
has been improving, but it
was -improving before the
class-size amendment. Edu-
cators say the improvement,
could be due to accounta-
bility measures like the
governor's 'A+" plan or
FCATs, or the federal No
Child Left Behind Act, or dis-
trict training or programs, or
even, school-based initiatives
and outstanding educators.
"I don't know anybody is
saying anything at the
moment (about whether CSA
is raising student achieve-
ment)," Benson said. "There
is no evidence it improves
achievement.' There are way
too many variables."
Good or bad, right or
wrong, it looks like the class-
size amendment is here to
stay in one form or an-
other. Legislative pundits say
amending the state constitu-
tion is extremely difficult.
"People say it's more pop-
ular today then when it
passed. Parents like fewer
kids in the classroom and we
recognize that," Benson said.

New DOE report on graduates'success


STAFF REPORT

Education Commissioner
John L. Winn unveiled a. new
Florida Department of Edu-
cation report Friday provid-
ing Florida's public high
schools with information
about the performance of
their 2004 graduates.
-ee' Individualized for each,
school, the reports present a
comprehensive profile of col-
lege readiness based on gradu-
ates' performance while still in
high school compared to their
enrollment in and first semester
performance at a postsec-
ondary institution. Admini-
strators can use the analyses
contained in the report to effec-
tively evaluate and plan school
1 -improvement strategies.
This is the earliest schools
,have had access to this data and
the first time it has been avail-
S- able in one, consolidatedreport.
S- "As an increasing number
of Florida high school stu-
dents are graduating and the
growing workforce needs of
'our state call for employees
with some sort of postsec-
S.ondarv education, it is essen-
S, tial that we are able to deter-
mine how well our high
school students have been
prepared for higher educa-
*'< tion," said Winn. "These
reports will provide high
S '. school administrators and
teachers with a valuable tool
for improving student learn-
S' .ing and achievement."

performance on the CPT is
just one of many indicators of
student preparedness. The
new reports, known as the
"High School Feedback
Reports," include school, dis-
trict and state level data on 10
pre-graduation and seven
post-graduation indicators.
Pre-graduation indicators
include performance on the
10th-grade Florida Comp-
rehensive Assessment Test;
participation in the PSAT, SAT
and ACT; the number of stu-
dents completing Advanced
Placement, dual enrollment
or other high-level courses;
and the percentage of stu-
dents eligible 'for Bright
Futures scholarships.
Post-graduation indicators
include the percentage of
graduates attending a post-
secondary institution in
Florida; percentage of stu-
dents enrolled in college-level
math and English courses;
and postsecondary, fall-term
grade point averages.
"Receiving timely data like
this really helps schools focus
on areas of concern that
might not be apparent at first
glance. The success of a high
school can certainly be mea-
sured by more than just the
number of graduates, and
this data does a great job of
digging down to specifics and,
shows just how well we are
doing in many areas," said Bill
Husfelt, .principal- of A.
Crawford Mosley High School
in Bay County. "I was excited
to see the positive achieve-
ments of former graduates at
the next level. These statistics
confirm our belief that we are


better preparing students for
college than ever before."
Comprehensive picture
Available to schools via the
Department of Education's
Web site, information found
in the reports was compiled
from the K-20 Education Data
Warehouse. A reference page
explaining the calculations
and sources of data is also
available on the Web site.
By combining community
college and Bright Futures data,
the departmentwas able to pro-
vide a more complete history of
students' best test scores along
with a snapshot of graduates'
participation in an academical-
lydemandingandwell-planned
curriculum.
"I am very impressed with
the new 'High School Feedback
Report,' which provides a com-
prehensive picture of how our
graduates do as they continue
their postsecondary careers. As
a former high school principal,
one of the areas we always
wantedto evaluate was our abil-
ity to prepare our graduates to
be successful in their further
educational endeavors," said
Bruce King, director of assess-
ment and accountability for
Monroe County Public Schools.
"While some of that data was
available, it was difficult to work
with and no where near as
detailed as this report. I believe
that our college and career
counselors will find this
extremely valuable as theywork
to raise public awareness about
the value of a high school diplo-
ma and when encouraging stu-
dents to take the most rigorous
courses possible."

95 condominiums proposed for East Dearborn

)cA sign alerts area residents to a Sarasota County Planning Commission meeting next week
Concerning a proposal to rezone more than seven acres off East Dearborn Street. A developer is

Lynn Conway was"
.preparing to buy the little
q pink house at the end of a
dirt driveway off South

She had leased the home
for a year and enjoyed the
view of Gottfried Creek and
the privacy the property
offered.

mother, Carlene Howze, was

looking at a house on South
Oxford Drive.
Howze said she liked the
relaxed residential area.
But both said they've
recently decided against
permanently moving to the
street. The reason: a pro-


posed 95-unit development
on 7.3 acres of mostly vacant
land across South Oxford
Drive.
The project's developer
will head before Sarasota
County's Planning Commis-
sion Thursday seeking a
-multi-family zoning of 13
'units per acre. The land is
currently zoned for one unit
per acre.
According to drawings,
the project, situated just
east of the First Church of
Christ Scientists and across
from Englewood United
Methodist Church, would
include a large retention
pond, a clubhouse, shuffle-
board court and eight con-
dominium buildings.
The proposed condo-
miniums include 45 feet of
living space above two 12-
foot parking levels, said
Sarasota County planner
Shelly Hamilton.
Hamilton said the zoning
request to 13 units per acre
is consistent with the coun-
ty's Future Land Use Map.
"It's designated for that
use," she said.
A commotion
Hamilton said the pro-
posed zoning change would
likely go before the county
commissioners in March or
April.,
SBut residents said they
don't think the development
meshes with the area's
atmosphere or available

infrastructure.
They said the proposal
would add traffic, conges-
tion, noise and commotion
to the largely residential
neighborhood.
Conway said East Dear-
born Street is already crowd-
ed and the coming road-
widening project would
accommodate only the cur-
rent travelers, riot the resi-
dents of the proposed devel-
opment.
"I'm not saying 'no' to
development," Conway
said. "I'm saying make your
preparations ahead of time.
I don't think the area is pre-
pared for it yet."
Added Howze, "I don't
think people realize. the
influx of people this devel-
opment is going to bring. If
this one goes though, we
know it's just the begin-


ning."
Giffels-Webster Engin-
eers Inc. will hold a meeting
at 6 p.m.. Monday at
SunTrust Bank's second-
floor meeting room.
The 'bank is located on
State Road 776.
Dave Campo, an area res-
ident, said neighbors will
have the opportunity to dis-
cuss and ask questions
about the project before it
heads to the planning com-
mission at 6:30 p.m.
Thursday in Sarasota.
"What I hope to do is get
enough people there so
everybody understand
what .(the developer) wants
to do," Campo said. "Talk
about something that will
look out of place."

Floridians to record oral history of America


STAFF REPORT

Tampa Bay area residents
will be given the opportunity
to participate in recording an
oral history of America,
through a partnership with
WUSF 89.7 and StoryCorps, a
national initiative to docu-
ment everyday history and
the unique stories of Ameri-
cans.
StoryCorps will be at St.
Armand's Circle in Sarasota
Jan. 5 through 25 to collect
the stories of Florida resi-
dents as part of the program's
cross-country tour.
This remarkable project
is sponsored by National
Public Radio, the Corpora-
tion for Public Broadcasting
and the automobile compa-
ny Saturn.
"It is an honor for our
community to be a part of
this special project," said


JoAnn Urofsky, general
manager of WUSF Public
Broadcasting. '"StoryCorps
will engage the Tampa Bay
community and help us
appreciate the strength in
the stories of everyday peo-
ple."
Community members
may participate by inter-
viewing friends or loved
ones. A trained facilitator
will guide participants.
through the interview pro-
cess and handle technical
aspects of the recordings.
At the end of a 40-minute
session, the participants walk
away with a CD of their inter-
view. With their permission, a
second copy will be sent to
Sthe American Folklife Center
at the Library of Congress,
where it will become part of a
high-quality digital archive.
This collection will eventu-
ally grow into an oral history


of America.
WUSF 89.7 will air a selec-
tion of the local stories and
create special programs
around the project. Selected
local segments will also air
nationally Friday mornings
on NPR's Morning Edition.
People interested in partic-
ipating in StoryCorp can sign
up on the NPR Web site at
www.npr.org. Sign up will
begin on Dec. 19 at 10 a.m.

Tree protection loophole fi nally eliminated


, In 2002, county commissioners approved a six-
year ban on the sale of pre-cleared agricultural
land. But they simultaneously inserted a loophole
, in the tree protection code that nullified the ban.


v BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Regulations that should
-discourage the bulldozing of
- 'large, tax-exempt agricultural
. tracts of all trees and other
- natural habitat before they,
- are sold to Sarasota County
- developers have been rein-
r stated. The rules were re-
E newed after a three-year'
. struggle by preservationists to
a eliminate a legal loophole.
,. On Tuesday, the county
L commission amended the
tree protection ordinance by


striking down last-minute
language it inexplicably in-
serted on June 19, 2002. The
earlier change effectively nul-
lified a six-year ban on the sale
of pre-cleared parcels by local,
farmers, citrus growers and
ranchers.
The controversial insertion
into the tree protection ordi-
nance read: -"Neither this in-
validation nor the six-year
time frame shall apply to bona
fide' agricultural or silvicultur-
al operations." Building offi-
cials determined afterward
that it nullified a six-year sales


ban.
Ironically, the commission
rejected a less stringent two-
year ban recommended by
the resource protection offi-
cials and voted 3-1 with
commissioner David Mills
dissenting for the six-year
ban. Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton was away on county busi-
ness.
"We would just be setting
up this community for anoth-
er residential subdivision with
no trees if we go with the two-
year ban," commissioner Nora
Patterson said. "Jon (Thaxton)
originally argued for a 10-year
ban and it's unfortunate he is
not here."
Commissioner .Shannon
Staub agreed.
"I'm ready to leave the six-
year ban (approved in 2002)


intact with no exemptions,"
she said. "If that hurts folks
because a family wants to
sell after the death of some-
body, then I'm sad. And I'm
sorry."
In addition to recom-
mending a two-year ban on
pre-clearing land before
sales, the staff also drafted a
proposed waiver process
that would have allowed
land clearing operations
within the two-year window
for agricultural purposes. It
was also rejected.
"We asked the agricultural
community for input," Mills
said, "but then we don't agree.
What's the problem? Agricul-
ture is rapidly disappearing in
this county. If what's being
requested is good for busi-
ness, what is wrong? I agree


that two years is adequate."
Shortly after the 2002 com-
mission decisions that estab-
lished the six-year ban on
pre-clearing and then nul-
lified it with the, tree ordi-
nance loophole several
commissioners said. they had
made a mistake in voting for
the last-minute language.
The county's policy against
pre-clearing was established
in 1998 when the commission
approved a two-year ban on
the sale of pre-cleared agri-
cultural sites to developers. It
was revisited in 2002 when
protection for "grand trees"
was added.
Tuesday's decision to re-
store the six-year ban on pre-
clearing agricultural land for
quick sales to developers


follows a recent trend toward
the protection of upland
habitat, which has largely
been ignored by the county's
code enforcement division.
In fact, regulations have
been on the books since 1997
that prohibit county .property
owners excluding the
agriculture industry and sin-
gle-family homeowners -
from "clearing and grubbing"
land without an approved
development order.
The enforcement lapse
was recently described in a
report authored by Amy, the
county's resource protection
manager. A supporting opin-
ion by the county attorney's
office verified the. conclusion
that "pre-clearing" without
authorization is prohibited.


'Solomon House' case goes to trial in March


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Renowned Sarasota artist
Syd Solomon's landmark
beachfront home just south
Sof Turdtle Beach on; Siesta Key
is gone now, but its demise
remains the subject of a long
simmering lawsuit against the
Sarasota County Commission
i that is finally scheduled for
trial on March 13.
Nancy Burns Stratton, a
Siesta Key resident who
bought the storm-damaged
house in May 2001, will as-
sert her state civil rights
were violated by the com-
mission when she was not
allowed to speak at a quasi-
" judicial hearing to have it
' designated historic in De.-
cember 2001.
In addition, she will con-
tend two commission deci-
sions led to an inverse con-
-e f pf, her property
by the county. Se Q iil seek
financial compensation under.
the Bert J. Harris Jr. Private
Property Rights Protection
Act. '
State lawmakers adopted
the Harris Act in 1995. It
recognizes that state, and
local government decisions
can diminish the value of a
propiety owner's land, and
provides legal avenues to
address grievances so own-
ers can recoup the lost
value. .
On Nov. 10, Circuit Court
Judge Becky Titus alerted both
sides in the case they should
be prepared for a three-week
trial, unless Stratton's claims
are addressed through media-
tion. Given the contentious
circumstances, an out-of-
court settlement is unlikely.
The county has filed a lien
',,against Stratton's now vacant
beachfront lot and will at-
,tempt to recover 'the cost of
demolishing her 9210 Blind
Pass Road home through
foreclosure. If it succeeds, the
county will take ownership of
the land.
"This case is unique be-
cause ani arm of the (county)
government recommended
that the structure receive a
historic designation," Sarasota
attorney-William Moore told
the Pelican Press last year
when. he filed the suit on
Stratton's behalf.
"But the county commis-
sion did not address either the
historic issue or let Ms.
Stratton talk at a hearing," he


said. "The commission had
already made up its mind to.
get rid of the house, which
was unfair. This was not gov-
ernment at its best. It was
thoughtless and almost mali-
cious."
Solomon, who succumbed
to Alzheimer's Disease in
2004, built his distinctive twin
towers home with a connect-
ing pedestrian bridge in the
early 1970s. It was designed,
by architect Gene Leedy in a
contemporary style known
as the Sarasota School of
Architecture.
In 1983, Solomon and his
beachfront neighbor to the
south, the late Pasco Carter
Jr., battled with the county
to, save their homes after
Midnight Pass became un-
stable and migrated north-
ward. After unsuccessful
dredging efforts to relocate it
to the south, the inlet was
sealed. ,
' The Midnight Pass case.
stirred up a political hornets'!
nest that has yet to be re-
solved. A recent county ap-
plication for joint permits to,
dredge it open is currently
under review by federal and
state agencies. In 1991, a pre-
vious county application
was denied.
Stratton bought the doom-
ed house from Dr. J. Gordon

and Phyllis Rubin on May 4,
2001, and immediately set,
about trying to save it. She.
sought a coastal setback vari-
ance to complete foundation
repairs, and the historic des-
ignation to avoid difficult
federal requirements.
When the county denied
Strafton's variance applica-
-tion on March 25,2001, which
prevented her from obtaining
state permits for foundation
repairs, she picked up where
the Rubins had left off and
attempted to have the struc-
ture designated historic.
On March 27, 2001, before
the Rubins sold it to Stratton,
the county's Historic Pres-,
ervation Board recommend-
ed the house be designated.
A hearing before the county
commission was advertised
for July 10, continued until
Oct. 9, but, not held until
Dec. 11, 2001.
At. the, Dec. 11 hearing,
which' \as odvertisid as
quasi-judicial County Ad-
ministrator Jim Ley and
Chief Building Inspector
Jerry Sparks were allowed to
speak, but Stratton and her
attorney were not. The com-
mission voted against the
historic designation.
If the commission had
granted the designation,
Stratton could have spent

more than 50 percent of the
structure's market value on
repairs and avoided federal
regulations that would have
forced her to elevate the tow-
er structures. The commis-
sion's decisions doomed her
efforts to save the house.
Moore described Stratton's
futile efforts in a 382-page
lawsuit filed with the circuit
court on June 18, 2004, and
noted that all her Blind Pass
Road neighbors who applied
for coastal setback variances
to protect threatened homes
received them.
He also stated that Strat-
ton's neighbors were allowed
to install sandbags and rock
revetments in front of their
homes; and a half dozen of
them received an after-the-
fact county permit for .a
misplaced seawall that did
not conform with approved
plans.

Gerald Kogan is a former chief justice of
the Florida Supreme Court and one-dme
administrative judge of the Criminal Dixision
of the Florida court system. He also served as
chief prosecutor of the homicide and capital
crimes division of the Dade County State
Attorney's Office, and often called for the
death penalty. In private practice he acted as
: defense counsel in capital cases, and he has:


spoken out against it.
"It doesn't make any difference if you are
in favor of capital punishment or if you are
opposed to capital punishment. The fact of
the matter is that as a viable penalty, capital
punishment does not work at this time and
has not worked in the state of Florida for
many, many years," Kogan is quoted as say-
i'g.
Kogan also has pointed out that the vast
majority of citizens still favor killing the
killers. That may explain the 10-2 vote in the
Smith case.
But if it doesn't deter crime, why do we still
do it?
"(T)o take out society's revenge on the
person who has transgressed," Kogan
explains.
Perhaps that is reason enough for most:of
us in cases like Carlie Brucia's.


Are we in'


season'


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


. "The'other day I was asked-
by a relative newcomer if we
were in. "season" and what
was considered "season."
People have different per-.
spectives on what really is the
season. The Arts Council for
its grants looks at it mostly as
January through April, so that
any performances outside of
those dates are considered
"shoulder" season and could
be eligible for funding.
In fact, that is what most,
consider the height of the sea-
son. Yet for most people the
season goes from Oct. 1 to
MNay 1, or sometimes it is said
that Easter is the termination
of the season.
The huge influx of visitors,.
some for as long as six
months so they can be con-
sidered Flbrida residents, is
the economic stimulus that.
makes or breaks a lot of busi-
nesses.
Our visitors are really criti-
cal to Our economy, even
though they- push our infra-
structure to the max. We try to
build everything to handle
the w6rst situation, which is
in February and March, but as
we all know we just can't quite
keep up with the ever-blos-
soming desire of everyone up
north to live in Florida -
seemingly all in our area. I
always love the bumper stick-
er: "Last one out of Michigan
turn out the lights."
Over the years our news-
paper has developed a good,
history of the migration of
folks, which I thought I'd
share.
Much of the migration falls
on the first of the month,
which you might want to cir-
cle on your calendar so you
do less travel. It happens that
rhany people are leasing or
renting space starting at the
first of the month. So on Oct.
1 we get our first burst of peo-
ple, usually 5 percent of the
population.
In November there is
another 5 percent that come
to town. These are often the'
mobile home owners and
condo owners who want to
fulfill their residency require-
ments to get around paying'
income taxeg up north, like in
Taxachusetts, where Sue and I
lived for a couple of years.


There is a little population
added in December, but
many people stay up north
through the holidays, and
some even go home for the
holidays, so it is really about a
w4sh. December is a time you
might be able to get to your
favorite restaurant as they are
often a little slower in the
shopping season.
Then the biggest hit of the
year occurs on Jan. 1, when
we get about a 10-percent
influx.'These are often people
who have three-month
rentals escaping the biggest of
.the northern snowfalls. In
February we get another 5
percent, which puts us near
the peak of our population,
when we can't get through
intersections or find a parking
place. It is at this time when
we most want police to arrest
people Who block intersec-
tions and run red lights.
It is when there seemingly
are accidents daily on 1-75
that cause traffic to divert
through Venice. Early-bird
specials are hot, not only to
get good prices but just to be
able to get in and out or some
restaurants in a reasonable
time.:
The peak of the season is
usually at the end of February
and the beginning of March,
although sometimes key col-
lege spring breaks can bring"
an influx of youths to grand-
ma's house. We sure do have a
lot of grandmas and ,-pas
around here.
From the end of March on,
,the cycle reverses, although it
peels off faster than it goes on.
By the end of May all of it is
"off." Easter plays a historic
role in the process: Many
people, particularly.those not
tied to rentals; use that as'
their get-away date. Early
Easters have affected retail
businesses.
While the traffic jams and
the crowded stores can make
the blood pressure rise, it is
the economic stimulus that
makes our community, thrive
and be able to be as vibrant
and successful as it is. Many
businesses are ecstatic just to
break even off season and to
make their big money during
season.

Holidays are happier on a full stomach


Editor:

As your mayor, I have always been amazed at the generosi-
ty ofVenice toward those in need in this community.
So far this year the Mayors' Feed the Hungry Program has
been able to provide Thanksgiving meals to more than 12,000
people in need. Christmas is coming and the need is going to
be even greater, but there are no funds available for the food
gift cards.
All of us are aware that there have been many demands for
help, to hurricane disaster victims that people have given to,
but I hope we can all reach into our hearts and our wallets to
support the Mayors' Feed The Hungry efforts to feed the hun-
gry people in our own community.

Rosa Parks'
lesson lives on

Editor:
Today I saw a very power-
ful movie documentary
about Rosa Parks. I learned
of this film presentation in
the community calendar of
the Gondolier Sun.
This movie was shown at
the Jacaranda Library in
Venice and the arrange-
ments for the showing'were
made by the Diversity Club
of Venice High School. -.
I would like to thank all of
the producers for this pre-
sentation, that 'is, the
Gondolier Sun, the Jacaran-
da Library and the Diversity
Club. '
It is my hope that this
presentation will be repeat-
ed and attended by many
people so that the achieve-


ment of Rosa Parks 50 years
ago will be better under-
stood and appreciated,
Helen J. Gardner

Let's think
of the spirit

Editor:
Let's not dwell on the
spelling of Christmas, or,
how we acknowledge it. But,
let's dwell on its meaning.
Christmas is the celebra-
tion of Christ's birth, a re-
minder of God's love for us;
a love that should reverber-
ate in our hearts throughout
the year, and not only dur-
ing Christmas time.
It doesn't matter what
type of card we send to one
another. What matters is the
remembrance.


Merry Christmas anc
Happy Holidays!

CDD bonds tax free,
but not cost free

Editor:
The Community Develop.
ment District concept was
enacted into law in Florida tc
encourage the redevelop-
ment of large, deteriorated
areas for the benefit of the
community. '
In granting the CDD, the
community provides a pow-
erful incentive by issuing tax-
free bonds for the restoration
of infrastructure. Such bonds
must be issued grudgingly:
The holders- of such, bonds
pay\no federal taxes on the
interest, and the resulting tax
shortfall must be paid for by
.the rest of us.
Most CDDs today are actu-
ally awarded to large develop-
ers, converting large tracts of
virgin land into gated com-
munities, in a hot, highly
profitable real estate market.
No developer'in Venice is like-
ly to build in central Florida
instead if a CDD is refused.
In a gated community, all
the infrastructure belongs to
the upscale property owners.
When the Venetian Gulf &
River Club was granted a
CDD by Venice, I noted that,
ironically, part of the, tax-free
bonds 'were specifically
directed to building the very
gate that keeps out residents,
including council members.
My estimate that the CDD
cost taxpayers. $18 million
went unchallenged.


d Council should calculate if
the new applicant for a CDD
really needs the tax benefits
s of a CDD, not just routinely
e grant the CDD because it is
someone else's money.
People who are careless
about someone else's money
are going to be careless with
mine, too.

There is honor
in all work
Editor:
As an American, I was
ashamed when I heard some-
one say undocumented im-
migrants are needed here to
do the jobs Americans will
not do. It made me think
every American kid ought to
be required to serve in the
i armed forces or in the fields
before being permitted to go
to college.
We are a country with the
largest debt in the world and
f we think we are too good to
work in the fields, yet we want
to eat all of that good food at
home and in restaurants --
food someone else has
grown, picked, prepared and
served.
We should, open our eyes

CALL US AT 207-1111.


What's the point of traffic school?


What a joke. Reading Vedder's column today, I got,a laugh. I
too, went to the so-called school at a hotel down on South
Tamiami Trail after I paid $75 at the county building. I spent
four boring hours there listening to some man talk about I
don't know what. I was sort of the joke of the class as I was there
because I had made an unmarked car with a cop in it slow
down to 40 miles an hour because I foolishly came out a drive-,
way on north 41. What a happy guy he was to have stopped me.
The class consisted of six women who had been driving under
the influence been there the third time and six truck dri-
vers in there for the second time they passed on hills. I don't
know what the speeders were there for because I never really
understood, and I do not know what I got out of the whole lec-
ture, only that I didn't get points on my license. Guess the guy
got paid for the whole show anyway. What a joke.


Placing blame. The com-
munity center project seems
to be getting a lot of attention
in the local newspaper. It's
good to see this. What really
happened with this project?
The city manager claims to
have little to do with the over-
all project. However, he was
part of a steering committee
to advise the architect of the
community's expectations of
what the finished product
must consist of. The city engi-
neer was also on that com-
mittee, as well as a county
official. Taxpayers were led to
believe that the center was to
be the first of two hurricane
shelters for the island that
would serve the public up to
and including Category, 3
storms. It is a city building.
Both the city manager and
city engineer had direct input
to this project. Something
went awry and everyone's
passing the buck. Also. where
was the Venice tax oversight
committee for this project
and other projects? Oversight
means watchful care. The
chairman of the oversight
committee should have been
aware of what was going on
with the community center.
Everyone wanted to get the
atta-boys at the ribbon cut-
ting, but where are they now
that the project turned out to
be a disgrace? You say one
thing and do another. That's a
,A shame. Taxpayers, .. ou' e
', been had agaii ff'lsa sen -
ous problem. This time the
mayor of the city of Venice
should address the problem
directly. You can't blame :the
taxpayers for this and you
can't blame the Red Cross.
New year's wish. No, I do
not think that PETA should
be allowed to put an ele-
phant statue at the Venice
Train Depot. Also, my wish
for the new year for Venice is
to see some reasonable,
intelligent, controlled
growth no more develop-
ment.
Untimely construction. It's
almost snowbird season 2006,


and the Pinebrook extension
is still not complete. As a mat-
ter of fact, I pass it several-
times a day and have not seen
a worker present for a month
now. I don't know who's pay-
ing these guys or what the
contract is, but something
really needs to be done to
make this process of building
and construction ,a little bit
more efficient. How can any-
body make any money unless
the city's overpaying them or
the county or the state is over-
paying them for their ser-
vices? The same thing down'
in North Port. You have two
police .officers sitting in the
*area where construction is.
going on, several workers
standing around watching,
one worker work, and mean-
while traffic is backed up for,
miles and miles and miles on
41, with no help in sight, and
no end in sight to the con-,
struction. You know these
construction projects need to
be done, everybody can agree
J on that. But it's just the fact
that it just takes so long.
Something has to be done
about that.
No column? I'm complain-
ing because you haven't had
the Let'em Have It column in.
thepaper for the past couple
of weeks. What happened?
Where is it? Let's get with it.
Thankyou.
Editor's note: Due to a com-
puter problem we lost some of our
'Let'em copy. Because of that and a
temporary dearth of calls, Letem
was omitted from one issue.
City should profit. Thanks
.to columnist David Dunn-
Rankin for pointing out the
huge profit made for each


additional floor on a building
on the island. He says a cool
$2 million per floor. Rankin
errs, though, in assuming the
city should be pleased to get a
pittance increase in city prop-
erty tax by allowing tall build-
ings. Both the federal govern-
ment and the state of Texas
negotiate high royalties for oil
under the gulf. They don't just
accept property taxes for the
temporary oil rig. The island
is rich in amenities, financed
by taxes on all Venice resi-
dents, including those at the
faraway Venetian Golf & River
Club. The air space above the
45-foot height ceiling should
be considered city property.
The city should negotiate this
height for at least half of any
additional profit. This money
could go directly to the city or
fund the cost of resurfacing
the beach in the future..
All screwed up. I'd like to
get a few things off my chest.,
City hall, I don't think they're
doing anything for Venice.
They're just screwing up over
there. They have the police
trying to. get their contracts
settled. Marty Black doesn't
want to give anybody money,
but he can get his raises and
God only knows who else gets
raises in there. Quit this com-
plaining, let them get their
raises. These policemen do a
wonderful job here. Let those
guys that quit, give them their
retroactive pay. We need
younger people in' there to
run this town. This ain't even
Venice no more it's a slop-
house haven. And another
thing, city hall has the audac-
ity to raise the, water bill and
garbage and. recycling, and
they got 54,000 gallons 'of
drinking water spill out in the
field by the community col-
lege because they're fighting
with North Port about getting
some money. They want to
keep building and then
they're raising our water bill.
What are these other people
doing with all these houses?
Are they going to get some
water or not? They're proba-
bly not gonna get it.

a county pipe near the MCC

Regarding Mike Alderman's

think it's quite likely that Mr.
Alderman is a transplant him-

he migrated from.
People who feel as he does
have the potential to engage in


tailgating. road rage. Road-
ragers are the real terrorists.
Any reasonable person will
agree that there are dangerous
drivers everywhere. We have.
seen many cars sporting Florida
plates as well as visitors exhibit-
ing bad driving habits. Mr.
Alderman apparently has selec-
dve vision.
There are many on our roads,
who think they are top-gun

rules and try to be nice.
Snowbirds are here to stay.

Lady Indians



show their



better half

But Venice still loses to powerful Lakewood
Ranch, 3-1.


'BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Lakewood Ranch High
.arguably has the top girls soc-
cer program in the tri-county
area.
Led by super sophomore
Lindsey Thompson, the Lady
Mustang varsity has not lost
to any team in the area.
Just hanging tough with
Ranch is an accomplishment
in itself. The Venice High girls
did just 'that Friday night at
Powell-Davis Stadium, bat-
tling hard in a 3-1 setback.
Lakewood Ranch
improved to 9-2, while Venice
fell to 8-3. Two of the losses
have come to the Lady
Mustangs. The first time
around, the Lady Indians fell
by the score of 4-0.
"We played better, espe-
cially in the second half," said
Lady Indian coach Joe,
Ferretti. "We worked hard in
practice on a motion offense.
We didn't play well in the first
half. At halftime, I told the
girls to play smart, to push the
offense, to execute like we do
in practice. We showed some
shades of brilliancein the sec-
ond half. The midfielders and
forwards put together some
solid scoring opportunities."
\enicea trailed- -.20 at the.
half., as Ranch got a break-
away goal from Thompson 13
minutes into the match and
Jamnie Van Hoose converted a
centering pass with 10 min-
utes left.
Ranch had plenty of other
opportunities in the early
going, most of them coming
on breakaways. A number of


shots just whistled wide. Lady
Indian keeper Meghann
Dunn was up to the task in
rejecting other Lady Mustang
advances.
"Meghann was more
aggressive," Ferretti said.
'"Ashley Kaiser played great on
the outside defense."
Speedy back Liz Walchle
was also quick getting back to
stop breakaways.
The offense began to take
shape in the second half.
Just three minutes in,
freshman Andria Thomas had
an excellent opportunity. She
rocketed a blast from 10 yards
out that was ticketed for just
inside the right post. Luckily
for Ranch, keeper Breana
Atkinson happened to be on
that side of the net. She
deflected the ball out of
bounds.
Three minutes later, for-
ward Kristen Johnson had a
hard shot gobbled up by
Atkinson.
Ranch scored a big insur-
ance goal 10 minutes into the
second half. It was Thompson
again, banging home a cross
from close in to make it 3-0.
To the Lady Indians'
credit, they kept scrapping.
The work paid off when
Chelsea Rose lined a shot
past Atkinson and into the
net with 22 minutes remain-
ing.
Venice pressed to get even
closer, but couldn't finish it
off.
The Lady Indians are on
the road this coming week.
They are at North Port
Tuesday and at Port Charlotte
Friday.

get back into the win col-
umn Wednesday night when
(t surprised Cardinal

Venice took a 1-0 lead in
the.) first five minutes, as
kichard Marquez hit a comer
kick off the Mooney keeper's
!lands, and came out to Tyler
simpson, who put the ball
back into the net.
A great deal of a physical
first half was played at mid-
feld. About half way through,
Venice keeper Jason Mad-
dams was given a yellow cau-
tion card and needed to be
momentarily substituted off
the field of play.
About 30 minutes into the
half, Marquez and Simpson
teamed up again to score.
Marquez sent a pass through
the middle. Simpson settled
and fired past the Mooney
keeper.
In the last 10 minutes of
(the half, Mooneyhad several
shots from well outside the
penalty area, which were
either wide of the goal or


saved by Maddams.
Just before halftime,
Mathias HUenguan placed a
pass on the foot of Simpson
just inside the area. Simpson
fired a hard, low shot toward
the far left post, only to go just
wide.
The second half started
out with one of the Mooney
players receiving a yellow
caution card. The first five
minutes of the second half
were played mainly at mid-
field, with nothing danger-
ous happening at either end
of the field.
Twenty-two minutes into
the half, Venice forward Juan
Guerrero scored, after receiv-
ing a pass from Dale
Thompson.
The goal was followed by
another good scoring chance
by Venice when Marquez sent
a pass to the feet of Colin
Cawthorne, who took a shot
passed just to the left outside
of the far post.
With less than two minutes
remaining, Mooney would
ruin the shutout attempt for
Maddams. A shot was taken
just'inside the penalty area,
when the defense was slow to

Toledo Blade funding agreement reached


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER'

Toledo Blade Boulevard is
one step closer to being four
lanes.
During a short ceremony
Thursday, Patrick Neal of Neal
Communities announced
that a funding agreement
has been reached for the
widening of Toledo Blade
Boulevard from Interstate 75
to Hillsborough Boulevard.
Neal also commended city
commissioners and staff for
helping to make this a "win-
win-win situation for every-
one," and a model of how
cooperation between city
government and private de-
velopers should work.
Benderson Development
Company, Sovereign National
Property Company and Cen-
tex Homes will work in con-
junction with the city to.
bring the widening project to
fruition.
"I'm not announcing the
beginning of construction.
but next week we'll select an
engineer from among four
companies. We should be
one year in design and per-


mitting, and if all goes well,
we'll start (construction) in
2007," Neal said.
Plans to improve and
widen the Toledo Blade cor-
ridor have been in the works
for the past eight years.
Benderson Development
Company and Neal Com-
munities, both part-owners
of the Woodlands of North
Port project, became involv-
ed in the road-widening
process when they discover-
ed that construction of the
Woodlands could be delayed
for several years while city
commissioners found addi-
tional funding for the Toledo
Blade reconstruction project.
"This isn't a free road,"
Neal said. "It's a $10- to $14-
million road. The money will
be contributed by developers,
and the city will reimburse
them through impact fees.
And Centex Homes will con-
tribute $7 milliono) to $8 mil-
lion through the life of the
project."
The Toledo Blade project
comes in under the old
impact fee schedule, with the
developers paying the city of
North Port $11 million in


advance. By paying the old
impact fee, the developers
will save several million dol-
lars.
Commission vice chair-
woman Barbara Gross and
commissioner Fred Tower III
were present at the ceremony.
Both Gross and Tower served
on the city's growth commit-
tee to help determine how to
handle North Port's massive
growth.
"It's an exciting day in:
North Port. This has been a
fantastic year for our city,"
Tower said. "We wouldn't
have been able to do this
without (city engineer Pat
Collins) and Mr. Benderson.
I'm proud to be a commis-
sioner while this is taking
place."
Cooperation
Collins said that the fund-
ing agreement will save the
city between $16 million and
$19 million.'
"They're giving me a lot of
the credit," Collins said, "but
we all sat and listened to
each other, and saw what
each others' needs were.
When you go into negoda-


tions with that mind set, you
get things done."
Eventually, 2,500 houses
will be built in the Wood-
lands development, 2,000 by
Centex Homes. About 80 of
those homes are under con-
struction now.
The Woodlands will also
include the Live Oak Business
Park, a public gateway to
North Port at the southeast
corner of 1-75 and Toledo
Blade Boulevard; an 80-acre
wastewater treatment plant;
and a large shopping center
between Cranberry and
Panacea boulevards.
There is also an agreement
with the Sarasota County
School Board to. build both a
middle school -and high
school near the Woodlands
development. It is estimated
that, once the schools are in
place, 7,500 additional cars
will travel the Toledo Blade.
and Price boulevards corri-
dor.
"The big thing is the co-
operation." Gross said. "We
have to cooperate to get the
road finished before we have
any more traffic jams."
Neal hopes that the rela-

One of the joys of being
retired from teaching is hav-
ing the chance to join other
retired people on day trips.
Two full busses of retirees
recently traveled to Mount
Dora to see that town's
Christmas happenings.
Among the pilgrims was
Marge Kotkiewicz, newly
retired from the Venice
Apothecary. Charlotte Kur-
potwa snapped photos as we
traveled on the Mount Dora
trolley. It's no wonder she is a
regular in this newspaper.
Lorraine Doyle and Margaret
Candanno deserve applause
for keeping everyone on
schedule.
It was fun to meet i enice
Gondolier Sun readers Katie
Ranier and Pat Clifford.
The trolley guide in Mount
Dora told us the community
put a halt to historic houses
being torn down and was
encouraging young people to
restore old houses and con-
vert them into bed and break-
fasts. We all agreed we wished
this would become a trend in
Venice.
The trip was sponsored by
the Epiphany Cathedral

They drew a circle around

STORY AND PHOTOS BY
JEREMY ROTTGEN* STAFF WRITER

B before Mickby Mouse,
before retirees, before
Bertha Palmer and
before Europeans crossed the
sea, Florida was different.
Native Americans lived off
the land, fighting off alligators
and the non-air-conditioned
climate in their race for sur-
vival.
Despite the hardships,
many of them came for the
same reason as today's trahs-
plants weather, water and
wildlife.
Of all those Native
Americans, the best remem-
bered are the Seminoles and
the Calusas.

Seminole
The name is not just a moniker for
a NCAA Division LA football team. The
Seminoles are the only unconquered
tribe to survive the onslaught of
American armies.
In his book, "The Unconquered
Seminoles," Dru J. Murray states that
the term "Seminole" is a derivative of
"cimarron," which means "wild men"
in Spanish. The original Senminoles
were given this name because they
had escaped from slavery in the
British-controllet northern colonies.
By the time the Seminoles made it
to Florida, many of the native tribes,
including the Tequestas, Calusas,
Apalachees, Timucan's and others,
had been decimated by the Spanish.
Out of an estimated 100,000 Native
Americans that occupied Florida dur-
ing the 1500s, less than 50 survived.
In 1767, Upper Creeks from
Alabama, who spoke the Muskogee
language, settled in the Tampa area.
Shortly after this in 1771, the first
recorded usage of the name
"Seminole" to denote an actual tribe
was recorded. In 1778. the Seminoles
were joined by more Lower Creeks
and a few Apalachees.
They preferred living in North
Florida and parts of Georgia, but hid
in the muck and brush of the
Everglades when pursued by the mili-
tary.
Hiding in the Everglades was a

smart move because most people
were terrified of the alligator, snake
and bug-swarmed waterways of the
area. This proud tribe could be the
more famous of the Florida natives
because of their success in evading
capture.
They Were not like the Calusa, who
were a fierce people who often skir-
mished with the northern tribes.
Calusa
The Calusa, also known as the shell
people, lived on the sandy shores of
the southwest coast of Florida.
According to The Florida Center for
Instructional Technology, this tribe
controlled most of south Florida with
a population that may have reached
as many as 50,000. The Calusa were
tall and well built with long hair.
Because of their war-like tenden-
cies, many smaller tribes were con-
stantly watching for these marauding
warriors. The first Spanish explorers
found that these natives were not
friendly.
They built their homes on stilts and
wove Palmetto leaves to fashion roofs.

but they didn't construct any walls.
They did not farm like the other
Indian tribes in Florida. Instead, they
fished for food on the coast, bays,
rivers and waterways. The men and
boys of the tribe made nets from palm
tree webbing to catch mullet, pinfish,
pigfish and catfish.
The Calusa used spears to catch
eels and turtles. They made fish bone
arrowheads to hunt for animals such
as deer. The women and children
learned to catch shellfish like conchs,
crabs, clams, lobsters and oysters.
They are considered to be the first
"shell collectors."
Shells were discarded into huge
heaps or middens.
Unlike other Indian tribes, the
Calusa did not make many pottery
items. They used the shells for tools,
utensils, jewelry and ornaments. Shell
spears were made for fishing and
hunting.
According to the National Park
Service the Calusa were Great sailors,
they used large canoes of hallowed
out cypress logs capable of reaching
Cuba. Their language indicated they
may have traveled to Florida from the
islands. Outstanding hunters and
fishermen, they did little farming. As
warriors they also received tributes of
iood from smaller tribes.
Mound Key near the mouth of the
Caloosahatchee River was the site of
their largest village; about 40 coastal
villages spread along the Florida Gulfl
Coast. They built huge mounds of
shell and deep moats to protect their
villages of raised huts although they
lacked domesticated animals and
heavy tools. Burial mounds and a
temple mound for ceremonies encir-
cled the village.
They traveled by dugout canoes.
which were made from hollowed-out

left. They found 400

cypress logs approximately 15 feet
long. They used these canoes to travel
as far as Cuba. Explorers reported that
the Calusa attacked their ships that
were anchored close to shore. The
Calusa were also known to sail up and
down the west coast salvaging the
wealth from shipwrecks.
The Calusa tribe died out in the late
1700s. Enemy Indian tribes from
Georgia and South Carolina began
raiding the Calusa territory. Many
Calusa were captured and sold as
slaves.
Diseases such as smallpox and
measles were brought into the area
from the Spanish and French explor-
ers and these diseases wiped out
entire villages. It is believed that the
few remaining Calusa Indians left for
Cuba when the Spanish turned
Florida over to the British in 1763.

The 13 puppies of Christmas
A- ^ L L *


BY DONNA KOLAKOWSKI
SPECIALTOTHE GONDOLIER


Mommy came to Suncoast
Humane Society on Nov. 28 as
a lost pet. No microchip. No
tags. No call from an owner
looking for her. And she was
obviously not spayed. She
was pregnant. Very, very preg-
nant.
Mommy is a beautiful part
lab with glowing eyes and one
very unique feature .- she
smiles. What could have been
interpreted as a sign of ag-
gression was actually a
friendly welcome from a lost
little girl. As she waited, hop-
ing her owner would call, she
warmed our hearts with her
smiling face and wagging tail
when we came to care for her.
Monday, Dec. 5, the staff of
Suncoast Humane Society
became proud aunts and
uncles of 13 precious pup-


pies. Mommy let us handle
and help her, as she had
learned to trust us. She let us
move her pups to help them
feed. She let us pet her and
her babies as though we were
one of her very own. She had
11 pure black and two brown
and black babies. And Mom-
my held true to her new
name, as she truly is a won-
derful Mommy. But Suncoast
Humane Society staff had
only just begun.
One of our staff members
offered to foster Mommy and
her babies, and after a day of
rest we loaded Mommy and
babies, complete with sup-
plies and a "customized"
swimming pool, into two
trucks and sent this special
family to their temporary (at
Least three-month) home.
This commitment to the wel-
fare of these 14 animals
shows how dedicated Sun-


coast Humane Society is to
saving every life we possibly
can.
We can all make sure that
there are fewer plights for
Mommies everywhere. Have
your pets spayed or neutered.
Make sure your pets have a
microchip or tag. And make
sure your animals have cur-
rent vaccinations and a rabies
license.
If you are interested in
becoming a foster family,
donating time, or becoming
involved in any one of the
many. programs Suncoast
Humane Society offers or can
financially contribute to the
care of the thousands of ani-
mals we help yearly, please
visit 6781 San Casa Drive,
Englewood, or visit humane.
org. Without your help, none
of this possible. Look for
Mommy and puppy updates
soon.

Coping with canine anxiety


MONICA LEIGHTON
PET COLUMNIST


Many owners feel when
their dog exhibits bad behav-
ior while they are gone that
the pet is simply attempting
to punish them or seek re-
venge for leaving them alone.
In most cases what the owner
does not'realize is that the
behavior is actually part of a
panic response known as sep-


aration anxiety. Dogs with
separation anxiety exhibit
behaviors such as digging,
chewing and scratching at
doors and windows, howling,
barking and crying as well as
tearing up furniture and
flooring. Even housettained
dogs with separation anxiety
_will.urinateancLdefecate asa_
result of distress.
Dogs with separation anxi-
ety will exhibit some or all of
these behaviors when left
alone, they sometimes dis-
play frantic greeting behav-
iors on your return and can
act depressed and anxious to
your preparation to leave.
If you feel your dog ex-
hibits signs of separation anx-
iety, you should have a con-
sultation with your veterinar-
ian on treatment options.
There are drugs available to
help your dog with this prob-
lem in conjunction with some


desensitizing techniques for
the owner such as ignoring
the dog on your return home
until they are calm, leaving a
detailed treat or toy such as a
Kong to keep the dogs mind
off your leaving and exhibit-
ing cues of your leaving such
as putting on shoes and car-
_ryingkeys-even when. you are
staying in.
Although we do not fully
understand why some dogs
suffer from separation anxi-
ety, there are treatments op-
tions available to make life
easier on you and your pet.

By VickiConnen,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My Audiologist told me
to store my hearing aid in a
"dry aid kit" every night to
eliminate any moisture,
which had accumulated
during the day. Should I
leave the battery in my
hearing aid or should I take
it out?
A. When "dry aid kits" were
first, introduced it was
recomfiended that patients
remove, the battery before
storing the hearing aids in the
dry aid kit. Two years ago,
Rayovac shifted its position
by stating, "A drv aid kit may
be beneficial for your battery
if you normally use your aid
in a high humidity en-
vironment. The drying that
occurs can, counteract any
excess water intake due to the
humid environment that can
shorten battery life." Zinc air
battery performance can fall
off dramatically in high
humidity environments.
When moisture accumulates
on and in the instrument
during the day, \\ater can be
absorbed into the battery.
Therefore, regular use of a
dry aid kit makes hearing
aids of all types work more
efficiently so the battery lasts,
longer. Given that moisture is
one of the biggest causes of
hearing aid repairs, it is good
to know that daily use of a
dry aid kit no longer involves
fumbling around with those
tiny batteries. To obtain a Dry
andc Store drying device, call
the Audiologists at Wood-
mere Hearing & Balance
Centers at 492-4327 today. s

BACK PAIN, FROM THE GROUND UP
Fallen arches (flat feet), are among the primary culprits of back pain. Because fallen -arches are unable to
adequately function in their role as "shock absorbers," the back pays the price for their failure. Foot weakness can
also lead to back pain. Ironically, one of the contributing factors to this chain of weakness is walking/running
shoes that are so cushioned that they require the feel to work less. With this in mind, be sure to wear running/
walking shoes that are appropriate to your walking and running style and regimen. You can detect foot weakness
b3 standing barefoot on one leg with your eyes closed. If 'ou wobble, >ou may have foot weakness that contributes
to back pain. There are a huge %ariety of techniques that can help reduce (and maybe eliminated back pain some
more effective than others. Finding the approach that works best for you is our goal. -.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, we draw upon a wealth of knowledge and
experience with treating and presenting foot and back pain and back injuries. Soothing and pain-reducing spinal
adjustments have been developed oser the last century during which chiropractors hae practiced, improved. and
refined their techniques. Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment. We're located at 1214-C \enice A'e.
East, where we offer massage therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. talking around the beach barefoot is one way to increase the strength of foot muscles. .

DEC. 11,2005


An exotic problem Gardening around town...


JOHN ROCHE
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

Did you ever have guests
come over and then couldn't
get rid of them? Well the parks
are no different; their native
communities are constantly
being visited by outsiders;
many are able to move in, and
some are difficult to get rid of.
Why are exotics so entic-
ing, eliciting importation?
Well, they are from foreign
places, they are not common-
ly seen, and appear beautiful
in these different surround-
ings. Or they were brought to
serve some, misguided pur-
pose. Exotic plants can be
showy during winter's drab
environment, adding color to
the landscape. Exotic animals
are frequently kept as pets
because they too are unique
and interesting.
So what's the problem?
Well, exotic plants and ani-
mals have no natural controls
away from their home envi-
ronment. They flourish and
spread sometimes with cata-
strophic results. Plants like
Brazilian Pepper were
brought to this country for
their dark green foliage and
bright red berries around
Christmas time. By the early
70p, it was so prolific it was
nicknamed' loridaHolly." It
haOs snce taken over many
roadsides, vacant lots, as well
as along the shores of many
rivers, lakes, and streams.
One story told about
Hyacinths was that they were
brought to Florida, from a
World's Fair in New Orleans.
Taking the "centerpiece" from
the table back to herhouse on
the St. John's River; a lady
then placed this beautiful
centerpiece in her backyard
pool,. where they spread, and
filled it up so she just threw
them in the river. Within 50
years the Hyacinths :had
clogged the ri'er for miles. /
Many exotics have spread
in similar ways. Plant trim-
mings dumped in the woods-
sprout and grow. Australian
Pines were planted as wind-
breaks; sadly their seeds were
carried by those same winds.
Many beaches are fringed by
Australian Pines, whose root
systems can trap and kill sea
turtles.
Melalluca were seeded
over the Everglades by air-
planes in hopes this "new for-
est" would dry up the
swamps and marshes, mak-
ing them developable. Yet no
timbering industry followed
and the trees grew and
spread. They are a hazard,
producing millions, of tiny
seeds,: and then spewing
them at any indication of
danger. Fires, cutting and poi-
soning cause the seed pods to.
open and dispense this slow
death to our ecosystems.
Exotic pets are no different;
those that grew too large to
handle or grown too big for
their cages were, no not
"were"; they are released into
the wild to fend for them-
selves. They can prey on any-
thing and yet have no preda-
tors. Exotic pets like the igua-
nas, and monk parrots have
escaped to form colonies that

grow and spread. In the
Everglades, pythons are now
competing with full-grown
alligators, and winning.
What will happen to the
Real Florida? The native habi-
tats that we know and love are
being .invaded and con-
quered-naturalized by these
exotics. Soon you won't find a
place that is natural; except in
Florida's State Parks. Our
resource Management
Programs are two-edged
swords, Prescribed Fire to
keep existing habitats healthy
and Exotic Removal to restore
habitats back to the way they
should be. This is to benefit of
native species and us, for as
John Burroughs said, "I go to
nature to be soothed and
healed, and to have my sens-
es put in order."
We live by order, and
nature has an order that
works, let's riot upset her.
Florida's state park system
is one of the largest in the
country with 159 parks span-
ning more than 723,000 acres
and 100 miles of sandy white
beach. Florida State Parks
were awarded the National
Recreation and Parks
Association's Gold Medal
Award, honoring Florida as
the "Nation's Best State Park
Service." A second for Florida,
the Gold Medal honors the
nation's outstanding park and

JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
I would like to sign up for,
Medicare's new prescription
drug coverage, which I want to
do by the end of December, but
I need help figuring out which
plan to choose. I've received so
much information about this in
the mail that I don't know
where to start. Any suggestions
would be appreciated.
Confused Carol
Dear Carol,
Medicare's new prescrip-
tion drug coverage (known as
Part D) is confusing to most,
seniors but help is available.
Here's what you should know.
All Medicare beneficiaries
that don't currently have good
(or creditable) prescription
drug coverage from a current,
or former employer, or a
union, need to take a close
look at Part D because it can"
be a cost saver.
Part D Help
If you have access to the
Internet, the best resource to
help you choose a Part D plan
to meet your needs is at
medicare.gov. This is the gov-
ernment's main Medicare
Web site that contains online
tools for resea hin co i-
paring and pi ,,


The site's key tool, called
the "Prescription Drug Plan
Finder," can help you narrow
your choices by providing a
side-by-side comparison of
the different plans available
in your area.
You just plug in your Med-
icare number, birth date, pre-
scription drugs and dosages
you currently take, along with
how much you're willing to
spend on a plan, and you'll
get a personalized search that
will breakdown and compare
the plan's costs, coverage and
list of preferred pharmacies.
It will also suggest cheaper
generic alternatives to brand-
name drugs when they're
available and give you addi-
tional information, such as-
whether your former employ-
er is offering drug coverage or
if you qualify for Medicare's
extra help program.
The site also lets you see
what you would pay if you
signed up for a Medicare
Advantage plan, the managed
care (HMO or PPO) alterna-
tive to traditional Medicare
that combines coverage of
hospital and doctor services
with prescription drugs.
Savvy Tips
If you don't have access to
the Internet or don't feel con-
fident in working through the
information on your own, ask
one of your kids or a close
friend to help you. Or, you can
call Medicare at (800) 633-
4227, and they will do the
drug plan comparing for you
over the phone.
Hands-on-Help
inl-,Ifypp want more personal-
ized_ advice'"in; "hoosihg a
s di .. '


plan, here are two additional
resources that can assist you:
SHIP: Your local State
Health Insurance Assistance
Program can help you ,1
choose a plan by offering free
one-on-one Medicare coun-
seling. To find your nearest
office visit shiptalk.org or call
(800)'633-4227.
*,Area Aging Agency: Your
. local agency may be able to
direct you to some commu-
nity-based organizations that
offer Part D education and
assistance. Call (800) 677-
1116 to get your local num-
ber or visit eldercare.gov.
Enrollment
Part D coverage begins Jan.
1, if you enroll by the end of
December.
There are several ways you
can enroll in a plan: through
Medicare at medicare.gov; by
calling 1-800-MEDICARE; by
contacting the plan of your
choice at its Web site or at the
phone number provided in its
brochure on Medicare's Web
site. Also keep in mind that if
you don't enroll by May 15,
2006 (the last day for open
enrollment) and choose to
enroll at a later date, you'll
have to pay a premium penal-
ty increase of 1 percent every
month you delay.
And you will have to pay
this penalty as long as you're
enrolled in Part D. But, if you
already have prescription
drug coverage at least as good
as Medicare's, you can delay
enrollment without penalty.

VIRGINIA DUPREE
COLUMNIST

Some of my contempo-
raries remember growing up
with an engineering marvel, a
beautiful big black Kalama-,
zoo cooking range.
I hereby recommend that
it be given an award for being
the noblest cooking appli-
ance of .all time. It had real
character and personality.
These days any housewife
or teenager or bachelor exec-
utive can push a button on a
gas or electric stove and make
beautiful crusty brown bread
or sweet rolls. Doing that with
a stove using wood was awreal
trick, though.


I understand that both city
folks and as well as farm folks
had these large wood cook
stoves. I can remember that
some of our cats would sleep
behind it and sometimes our
big Shepard dog would sleep
nearby. Now can you imagine
a.cat seeking comfort behind
an electric stove? No way.
The stove was built with a
fire box on the left. Kindling
and chopped wood were
used as fuel. I think my father
would rebuild the fire at
about 4 a.m. before going out'
to milk the cows.
.To the right of the stove
were 4 or 6 burners. To the
right of that was a large reser-
voir for warm water. I can't
fathom how that fire box
heated that water in the reser-
voir, which seemed to be a
long way from the fire box,
but it did.
The big oven was down
below as most ovens, are
today and there was a warm-
ing oven above the burners. I
remember my mother using
some kind of black substance


to keep the stove looking nice.
It may shock some latter
day cleanliness diehards to
learn that it was a custom for
most families to bathe once a
week, on Saturday nights. A
large wash tub was brought
into the kitchen and filled
with warm water from the
reservoir.
That reservoir would not
hold enough water for 5-7
people so if I remember right
we all, used the same water
one after the other.
Being the youngest I sus-
pect I was the first. My father,
who worked with cows, pigs
and chickens in the field, was
probably the last. Even I
could not imagine that now. I
know that modern appli-
ances are supposed to save
time and that some of them
have voices and brains, but
they still don't have the per-
sonality of 'hose old stoves.
People make a big deal out
of the character and person-
ality of politicians but no one
seems to care about them in
our household goods.

NATIVE from page 1B


tingwas also the site of a mys-
terious people. They were not
believed to be Calusa because
their remains had no evi-
dence of a violent culture.
"Window to the past," an.
exhibit at. Historic Spanish
Point sheds some light on an
otherwise dark period of his-
tory. Using a slice of the Shell
Ridge, a 1,000-year-old refuse
heap left from early inhabi-
tants, viewers can see shells,
bones and tools these early
people used to get through
the day. This midden itself is
1/4 of a mile long and almost
20 feet high.
"Mound building was
shared by all Florida Indians
for many hundreds of years,
including well before the
Calusa and other historic
period tribes came into exis-
tence," said George Luer, an
archaeologist for University
of Florida's Department of
Anthropology.
"Mounds, however, are dif-
ferent from middens, which
tend to contain remains of
camps or villages. There are
many large mounds and mid-
dens all over the state."
A section of the midden
had been previously cut so a
limousine could easily man-
euver without having to back
out of the narrow trails.
Upon entering Spanish
Point a burial mound from
this particular tribe can be
seen.
"We do not know why they
left," said Spanish Point
employee Tina Marquart.


The Calusa are memorialized in Heritage Park alongside the Seminole. They are a big part of


Florida's history.
"They found 400 skeletal
remains along with an alliga-
tor surrounded by dogs sug-
gesting a kind of ceremony,
perhaps to protect the area
when they left."
Two other treasure troves
of artifacts still exist at Span-
ish Point. One, a large U-
Shaped archaic midden is
where Frank and Lizzie Webb
Guptil built their home.,
Shell mounds can still be
found today in many parts of


southern Florida. Environ-
mentalists and conservation
groups protect many of these
remaining shell mounds.
One site is Mound Key at
Estero Bay in Lee County. Its
construction is made entirely
of shells and clay.
This site is believed to be
the chief town of the Calusa,
where the leader of the tribe,
Chief Carlos lived. Another is
in nearby Englewood at
Indian Mound Park.


Archaeologists have exca-
vated many of these mounds
to learn more about these
extinct people. Artifacts such
as shell tools, weapons, and
ornaments are on display in
many Florida history muse-
ums.
To learn more, visit Hi-
storic Spanish Point, 337
North Tamiami Trail, Osprey.

For your next port of call in life why not retire at sea?


BY AIRLINE BLEECKER
GUESTWRITER

Did you ever wish you
could toss in the towel and
just cruise for the rest of your
life? Would it be feasible, say,
to retire and live year-round
on a cruise ship?
Life on one certainly
would be cushy.
On the premises, you
would have restaurants and
cafes, nightclubs, theater,
movies, live music, casinos,
shopping, driving ranges,
tennis courts, swimming
pools, a gym and spa,
concierge service, round-the-
clock room service, top-notch
security, even doctors and
nurses on call 24/7. Some
ships even have X-ray facili-
ties and operating rooms.
And, of course, the world


at your doorstep.
The notion of living on a
ship isn't new. In 1963, a
woman lived full-time in a
small cabin on the original
Queen Elizabeth.
"Her, family was delighted
that she was always being
looked after," Maureen Ryan,
the "lady assistant purser" at
the time, said. Another sea-
farer, Rosemarie Roberts,
lodged for about a dozen
years on the now-defunct
Royal Viking Line.
Lines don't particularly
encourage this sort of thing,
though. And geriatric experts
may wonder about its long-
term efficacy, especially for
the elderly. Nevertheless, it's a
choice some people happily
make.
In fact, a recent article in
the Newark Star-Ledger fea-


tures 86-year-old Bea Muller,
who sashays around the
world as the sole de facto res-
ident on the venerated QE2.
According to the article,
Muller's expenses, "run about
$66,000 a year,, which
includes insurance, tours in
ports, clothing, gifts and
occasional visits to her sons."
If that's too pricey, a
sojourn on. one of Carnival's
21 Fun Ships would run
about $800 a week or around
$42,000 a year. A party-hearty
cruiser could sail the
Caribbean in an endless loop.
Or that cruiser could book
a never-ending Caribbean
voyage on Holland America a
premium line catering to a
sophisticated older crowd
and expect to. pay about
$1,050 per week or about
$52,000 per year.

At these fares, such a
lifestyle compares favorably
to some retirement options.
For instance, on average,
assisted living costs $306288 a
year, more in the Northeast
and West, according to .a
study cited by the Journal of
the American Geriatrics
Society. Higher-end conmmu-
nities can run even more -
$48,000 plus.
Setting your sights a bit
higher might not cost that
much more. You could opt for
a plusher cabin on a Holland
America vessel and expand
your sailing horizons to
include Europe next year.
Line spokesman Erik Elvejord
says retiring for the year in a
balcony cabin would cost
about $70,000 per person
double occupancy.
Cost aside, some are find-
ing ,retirement at! sea more,
Morgan of Nethaw Mexico spentma,
Morgan of New Mexico spent


all buttwo weeks last year
aboard Crystal Harmony. So
delighted was Morgan with
her seafaring sojourn that
she's booked again for all of
next year.
According to Crystal's Lynn
Sogi', "For a person to stay
year round on. Crystal
Harmony in the least expen-
sive cabin would cost roughly
$81,170."
A year on the upscale
Seabourn would cost a salty
$114,610. But, as spokesman
Bruce Good points out, you'll
be kicked off during the ship's
dry-dock maintenance or if
it's chartered.
But what if your health sta-
tus turns sour? Ships may
compare' favorably to assisted
living, but they're still vaca-
tion venues. For super bucks,,
though, you could nab an
c Ualcopndo ea. ,,
The World*" 12-deck es"
sel the length of two football


fields, was launched two
years ago as the only private
community at sea. It may be
the ultimate mobile home.
The ship sails a continuous
round-the-world itinerary
emphasizing extended stays
- clocking about 250 days a
year in various ports, spend-
ing as many as five nights in
some.
For a shot at the World's
one-, two- or three-bedroom
apartments (ranging from
675 square feet to 3,242
square feet.), you would have
to cough up between $1.3
million and $6.3 million.
Many World's residences
are available for rent, though,
with a minimum six-night
stay required, at rates that
start at $1,000 per night,
including meals and select
beverages, port charges and
gratpities. ;.

*(www.globalfreeloaders.co
m), one of several Web sites
that matches an :online
community, designed to
Thatch travelers with hosts
worldwide who offer a free
place to stay a sofa bed, a
spare room or just space on
a dorm-room floor and
an insider's take on local
culture. .
Call us kindhearted, callus
intrepid, call us fools: We're
not alone:.
Global Freeloaders, found-
ed in 2000, has more than
28,000 members in 170 coun-
tries, said founder Adam
Staines, 26, of Melbourne,
Australia. Members range
from college students to,
retirees, with a median age of
about 35, Staines said.
Since its launch last year,
Couch Surfing (www.couch-
surfing.com) has signed up
more than. 25,000 members
in 149 countries.
Hospitality Club (hospital-
ityclub.org) is growing by 150
members a day, says founder
Veit Kuehne, 26, of Dresden,
Germany. Since its inception
in 2000, Hospitality Club has
signed up 70,000 members in
190 countries..
Among them are Frank
Munchow, 35, ,and Mandy
Albert, 33, of Berlin. When
they visited South Florida ear-


lier this year, they didn't book
a hotel room. Instead, they
too relied on the kindness of a
stranger.
They ended up with more
than just a bed. Their host,
Bernard Osorio, 41, a local'
teacher, played tour guide,

Marketplace, Key Biscayne
and other South'. Florida
favorites.
Hospitality Club "is the
best idea in the world," said
Munchow, who works in
information technology. "It's
our first time in America. It is
better to see the way people
really live.",
Hospitality Club grew out
of Kuehne's experience as a.
teenage exchange student,
when he lived with a family in
North Carolina. "My hope is
that if more people travel this
way, they will understand
better" other cultures and'
make war and conflict less
likely, he said. A business
school graduate, he lives on
savings and runs the site full,
time with the help of volun-
teers.
Couch Surfing, founded by
Casey Fenton, 27, of Conway,
N.H., has a similar goal. "I
want to. make the world, a
smaller place, where people
feel they can trust people
more often," Fenton said.
Global Freeloaders' gene-'
sis was a trip to a Moroccan
music festival. Staines and a
friend arrived to find accom-
modations -sold out. A local
man overheard them lament-
ing the situation in a cafe and
offered them a. room at his
house. "We ended up staying
with him about a week," said
Staines, a computer program-
mer. "It turned out to be one
'of the most enjoyable weeks
of my travels."
embers join each site by
providing a profile that
includes the city in which
they live, accommodations
they have to 'offer (spare


room, sofa, space on floor),
whether they prefer guests of
'a certain gender or age,
whether there is public trans-
portation nearby and restric-
tions on pets, smoking and
drugs.
Other members can check
out the profiles in the city
they want to yisit and send an
e-mail to the prospective
host, who can accept them,
reject them or ask to know
more about them. Some.
prospective hosts don't
respond at all a passive
way of saying, "Not interest-
ed .. :,
Some hosts offer only a
place to sleep. Others, like
Osorio, take time from their
own lives to take visitors on
tours. .
It's a favor returned. "I
went to Switzerland," Osorio
said. "This wonderful guy
picked me up; he belonged to
the club. He spent the entire
day with me. Afterward, I
found out he was the owner
of a company. He didn't work
that day just to pick me up.",
Osorio will attend -the
man's wedding later this year,
when he'll also visit his cur-
rent guests. But what about
security? Does Osorio worry'
when he's going to a stranger's
home, or hosting at his? He
says no. "I have had so many
good experiences I don't
worry. ... I make sure to

STERILIZATION AND INFECTION CONTROL
You may not be aware that sterilization and other infection .control
precautions takes place in your dentist's office because many of these
procedures occur out of your view.
All dental staff involved in patient care use protective garb, such as
gloves, and sometimes masks and eyewear. After each patient visit, the
gloves are discarded, hands are washed and a new pair of gloves is
used for the next patient. Virtually all dentists sterilize their handpiece
(drill) between patients. Items, such as needles and saliva ejectors,
cannot be sterilized and are discarded in special containers.,
Dental instruments are cleaned and sterilized at very high
temperatures after each time they are used on a patient. Sterilization
methods include: and autoclave (steam under pressure), a dry heat
oven or chemical vapor (commonly called a chemiclave). The
sterilization equipment is not in the treatment room, but if you'd like to
see how and where it's done, ask the dental staff to show you.

'Asolo tradition brings children joy


Chocolate Robot showpiece


STAFF REPORT


STAFF REPORT

SThe Asolo Theatre
,-Company is pleased to
,announce that children
",throughout the Sarasota and
Manatee area will once again
attend performances of A
-.Christmas Carol during
'December 2005 thanks to the
Tiny Tim Fund, a benevolent
,fund dedicated to sharing the
,-magic of live theater with
,!underprivileged children.
The children who attend
'the play on behalf of the fund
S,come from area foster homes
and youth groups such as The
,,Boys and Girls Clubs of
Sarasota and Manatee coun-
.ties, Girls Inc. of Sarasota
County, Just for Girls and Big
-.Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun
.. Coast.
The Tiny Tim Fund was


started by a young actor
named Chris Keller, who
played the original Tiny Tim in
the Asolo production of A
Christmas Carol. The fund is
carried on by a new genera-
tion of young actors and the
Asolo staff. The Asolo donates
most of the cost for each tick-
et, with the Tiny Tim Fund
contributing $15 for each
child.
Contributions to the Asolo's
2005 TinyTim Fundwill come
from some likely and unlikely
places. Corporate sponsor,


Harris Trust, will provide
$2,500 of the total collected.
The remaining donations will
come from patrons who place
money in lobby collection
boxes,, corporate gifts, Asolo
staff, and donated stipends
from cast members like 12-
year-old Anthony DeNiro
(who plays young Scrooge),
following in the footsteps of
Chris Keller. Keller, at age nine,
initiated the Tiny Tim Fund by
donating his paycheck.
Additionally, theater dona-
dtions can be made in honor of


someone or as a holiday gift.
"We're thankful for the sup-
port the fund receives each
.year, even though we some-
times fall a little short of the
costs involved," Susan Melum,
the Asolo's marketing director.
For information on making
contributions to the Tiny Tim
Fund, call Susan Melum at
351-9010, Ext. 4808. To learn
more about the Asolo's other
programs for children, call
Asolo Education Director
Carrie Mills at 351-9010, Ext.
3320.


Standing over 7 feet tall and
composed of 170 pounds of
Swiss chocolate, The Ritz-
Carlton tradition of Christmas
has met modern-day technol-
ogy. This chocolate robot was
created by members of the
Pastry Department over a
three-day period. Every aspect
of the chocolate robot is com-
pletely edible from the head all
the way down to the feet.
Gelatin molds were used
during this project to create
the lifelike nuts, bolts and
screws seen throughout the
piece. Stencils were cut free-
hand to, create the shoulder
and chest area. The hands
were created by casting choco-
late into a rubber glove, then
allowing it to set in a lifelike
position. Lastly, a 10-gallon
water jug was cut in half and

molded in chocolate to create

sprayed in bronze and red
cocoa butter to give it a metal
appearance.
