City inspectors target "recurring" problem at the

Any auto enthusiast
knows, put your car up on a
set of cinder blocks within
city limits and the complaints
will hit Venice City Hall faster
than you can change a tire.
So it comes as a surprise
few people are complaining
about an entire home sitting
up on blocks for months at a


time.
City inspector John Patek
would like to see that trend
change, especially after citing
Bay Indies Mobile Home Park
for failing to obtain 'installa-
tion permits for 10 new
mobile homes on its property.
Patek was driving down
Lucaya Avenue about a
month ago when he saw a
mobile home sitting up on
supports, waiting to be

installed. The inspector called
the address in and discovered
an application hadn't even
been filed.
, By the time he was done
driving around dhe park, he
found 10 mobile homes up
on blocks lacked permits; six
of those hadn't even have a
pending application.
"Enough is enough," Patek
said when asked for com-
ment. "You drive around, and
you have mobile homes just
'dumped' out there. I hate to
use that word, but that's basi-
cally what they are."

Another battle in the war
to have breathalyzer test

has been won, but more shots
will be fired.
A three-judge panel ruled
Thursday that if the state

ing in scientists to examine

orders to reveal source codes.
"We were hoping for a
slam dunk and instead we got
a jump ball," Venice attorney


Robert Harrison said. "(The
court order) keeps us on the
same road to keep breath
tests excluded."
In other words, Harrison
said, the state can still use
breathalyzer results, but as a
practical matter, it is going to
be tough sledding.
"The court said basically
the state can only use breadh-
alyzer results if they lay a
foundation, which for all
intents and purposes is
impossible," Harrison said.
"They would have to testify
that this software is reliable
but they cannot show the
computer is reliable without

BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT



Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton has been
urging residents to lobby
Florida legislators about
impact fees: "Hands off. Let
the counties continue to han-
dle them."
He was ap-
pointed last
August to a
15-member
statewide task
force whose
majority, he
said, is com-
posed of
builders, de- Thaxton
velopers and
Realtors. He fears that the
group's report, scheduled in
February, will follow the
"party line": replace the home
rule powers of the counties
and transfer them to the state
Legislature.
The task force was man-
dated by the revised state
growth management plan. It
was charged with providing a
balance between develop-
ment and broader communi-
ty interests.
"The Legislature is not the
appropriate body to deal with
impact fees," Thaxton said.
"Raising revenues and resist-
ing deficits for infrastructure
should be in the hands of the


people who have those
needs."
Legislators, he said, are
under greater pressure from
special-interest groups.
"Impact fees are a right of
home rule, which was sup-
ported by Florida's courts," he
added. "The home-building
industry is
upset with the
courts. Build-
ers want to
bypass the ju-
diciary, and
go through
the Legisla-
ture, ignoring
standards
Ley established by
case law since
1975."
Thaxton agrees that "im-
pact fees are high. Land,
materials, labor are making it
virtually impossible to pay for
the roads we need to sustain
growth in Sarasota County,
probably all over the state.
"But allowing the state to
regulate impact fees instead
of the counties, which home-
builders want, is not the way.
It will mean shifting impact
fee income to property taxes,
and dismantling impact fees."

Charles Moore goes out
every evening at dusk to
change the 12 batteries
that power the lights on the
Christmas tree'and wreath
setup by the side of U.S. 41
in Venice.
There are strings of
beads on the tree, orna-
ments and a golden angel
on top.
Nearby is a sign, put up
by the state: "Drive careful-
ly, in memory of Valerie
Moore."
To Moore and his wife,
Allison, the message, is
even more vivid this time
of year: Drive safely during
the holidays.
The Moores, who live in
Overbrook Gardens in
Englewood, travel daily to
the site where their daugh-
ter died only seven months
ago in an automobile acci-
dent, leaving behind her
parents; her older brother,
Jordan; and her boyfriend,
Michael Meliti.
Charles Moore has
made the trip to the road-
way memorial since Dec.
13, the beginning of the 12
days of Christmas.
The reason is simple:

Valerie loved Christmas.
"It was her favorite holi-
day," Moore said Thursday.
"She liked to dress up
like Santa Claus. This was
like her big holiday. It's our
way of celebrating Christ-,
mas with her. This will be
the most extravagant we'll
do. We'll do something for
New Year's, maybe all
white, like for a new start."
A little faded
Since the accident on
May 27, Moore has gone
out often to maintain a
memorial at the site. Each
week, the couple has
brought cut flowers. Now,
the site has poinsettias.
"Big plastic ones, beau-
tiful plastic ones," he said:
Moore said he and
Allison wanted to use plas-
tic flowers, because they
were afraid if it rained too
hard, real ones would be
destroyed.
"They're getting a little
faded, though, from the
rain," he said.
He said he made the
monument for Valerie be-
cause he didn't want what
happened to her to be in
vain.
"That's my biggest fear,"
he said, "that people will


forget her."
That doesn't seem likely.
"Her little girlfriends
leave notes, how they're
missing her at lunch,"
Moore said.
After attending Engle-
wood Elementary School
and Laurel Nokomis Mid-
dle School, Valerie went to
Venice High School.
There, she played clar-
inet in the band and was a
member of the color guard
in the marching band. And
she learned to play the vio-
lin.
She was a volunteer at
the St. Francis Animal Res-
cue in Sarasota. She loved
animals. She adopted a
pregnant cat and also had
six Boston terriers, two
mixed with pug.
On Thursday, Moore
remembered a Christmas
vacation when he took the
family to Tennessee so
Valerie and Jordan could
see snow for the first time.
All it did was drizzle for a
felw days, but the two still
discovered the thrill of slid-
ing down the steps of the
house they were living in.

Somehow, Tropical Bob
overlooked the Winter Solstice
on Wednesday.
That's the day every year
with the shortest number of
daylight hours in the North-
ern Hemisphere. It happens
because the earth tilts on its
axis due mostly to holiday
overeating, T.B. thinks and
the sun is thus farther away.
We get cold and dark as a
result. ,
The. only good thing about
the Winter Solstice is that it
means we're rounding sec-
ond base on our way to the
Vernal Equinox, marking
spring. More daylight. Warmer
weather.

It didn't have to be Christ-
mas for Al and Ruth Moseley
to help those in need. The two
have made ,their mark in the
Venice area as volunteers
since they moved there about
28 years ago.
Al Moseley said it has been


their purpose in life to help
people. '
Their legacy of helping
people began after they
moved to Venice from De-
troit, Mich., in the late 1960s.
The Moseleys were typical
Northerners who traveled to
Florida. After Al Moseley
retired from Chrysler Corp. in
Detroit as an assistant super-


intendent, the two sold their
house and made their move
to the Sunshine State because
they liked the weather.
Al described Venice as a
"sleepy town of about 14,000
people." The Moseleys chose
Venice because they, had
friends who already had dis-
covered the quaint little town.
While visiting Venice, they
became active with St. Mark's
Episcopal Church. It was at


the church the two became
actively involved with helping
people. In 1975, they were
instrumental in the church's
migrant worker ministry of
sending food and clothing to
needy families in Immokalee.
Inside the church, they put
a box for parishioners to
donate food and clothing for
the needy migrant families. At
Thanksgiving, they gathered
food and delivered it to the

New Community Foundation makes first grants


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Friday, Dec. 16, the new
Community Foundation at
the Venice Golf & Country
Club awarded $15,655 in
grants to eight local charities
and organizations.
IThe awards were presented
at a luncheon in the club-
house.
Established by residents of
the club in February, the new
foundation is "dedicated to
improving the quality of life
in the greater Venice area."
Foundation president
Warren Hall said the grants
were given to fund items that
could be tracked to show the
result of the grant on the orga-
nization.
The initial fundraising
event of the foundation was
an art auction held in Sep-
tember. That event raised
some $25,000, of which
$23,500 was donated to the
Loveland Legacy Fund. An
additional $10,000 was set
aside for the endowment of
the new foundation, which is
being administered by Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice.
Friday's recipients were
selected from 23 completed,
applications filed after 37
grant forms were requested.

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

HMA asking state to overturn hospital denial


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

The possibility of North
Port getting a hospital now
rests with the exceptions that
Health Management Associ-
ates will be filing with the
Agency for Health Care Ad-
ministration in Tallahassee.
HMA recently asked for
and received an extension for
filing its exceptions to the rec-
ommended' order of an
administrative judge with the
Division of Administrative
Hearing who determined no
hospital is needed in North
Port.
The original deadline of
Dec. 16 was set by Judge T.
Kent Wetherell II according to
Florida statutes. Exceptions
are considered and ruled
upon by AHCA in the course
of issuing a final order.
"Although North Port


(HMA) requested the exten-
sion, it applies to all the par-
ties," said Toby Philpot, AHCA
spokesperson. 'All parties
consented to the extension.",
According to Philpot, no
one has filed any exceptions
to Wetherell's order.
In Wetherell's Dec. 1 ruling,
he said the need for a hospital
in North Port had not been
demonstrated.
Wetherell wrote, "The pro-
jected population growth in
North Port through 2010 is.
not in and of itself a basis for
approving a new hospital."
WethereU also said that
because the median age in
North Port -39 -is declin-
ing, it reduces the population
of those 65 and older.
"These declines are signifi-
cant because the elderly gen-
erally utilize hospital services
at a higher rate than younger
persons," Wetherell said.


Joshua Putter, divisional
vice president of HMA, said
he asked for the extension so
HMA could make the best
argument.
"We will be concentration
on two issues population
and travel times," Putter said.
Putter said HMA plans to
focus on the fact that the pop-
ulation figures and travel
times to regional hospitals
Wetherell used were not
accurate for North Port.
In an earlier interview,
Putter said he didn't under-
stand what numbers the
judge was using.,
"North Port has more than
35,000 people," Putter said.
In fact, the. city of North
Port has tracked population
figures and estimates there
are already more than 45,000
residents living here.
After all the exceptions are
filed, Philpot said,, all parties


have 10 days to file a response
to the other parties' excep-
tions.
Philpot saidAHCAhas sev-
eral options it can.consider.
The agency can adopt the
recommended decision as
the final order of the agency.
Or the agency in its final order
may reject or modify the
judge's conclusions.
"When rejecting of modi-
fying such conclusions, the-
agency must state with cer-
tainty its reasons for rejecting
or modifying such conclusion
of the court," Philpot said..
Under Florida law, the
agency may not reject or
modify the judge's findings
unless it first determines,
from a review of the entire
record, that the findings were
not based on "competent
substantial" evidence, or that.
the proceedings didn't com-
ply with the essential require-


ments of the law, Philpot said.
In more than 90 percent of
the cases, the agency sides
with the judge, however.
Philpot couldn't give a def-
inite time when the agency
will decide on the exceptions.
"Each case is very much
data-driven, and we must re-
view the entire record," he
said. "To be fair to all parties,
we thoroughly and methodi-
cally review them."
Last year, commissioners '
unanimously voted to select
Universal Health Services as
.their choice to ownand oper-
ate a hospital here.
Shortly after, HMA also
filed a certificate of need
application and was prelimi-
narily awarded one byAHCA.
Other health care groups
voiced objections to North
Port's hospital, resulting in
the administrative hearing
over which Wetherell presid-


ed.
Fawcett Memorial Hospit-
al Chief Executive Officer
Thomas Rice called the com-
munity's efforts "unwarrant-
ed."
He sent a letter to Talla-
hassee opposing any new
hospital in North Port. So did
Englewood Community Hos-
pital.
The two appeals were con-
solidated and the hearing
held on May 24 in Tallahas-
see.
Wetherell rejected HMA's
certificate of need application
after considering proposed
recommended orders from
all the parties.
North Port will have to wait
until next year to learn if it will
receive a hospital.

spent the first hour of their
Tuesday meeting discussing
the West Villages Village Dis-

DiVosta Homes sites, near
River Road.
Attorney Jeffrey Boone and
project engineer Peter Van
Buskirk, who represented
DiVosta Homes, agreed to
modify the original plan,
which called for new homes
Sin phases 1A through ID.
Instead, they agreed to begin
with phases IA and IB, which
include about 328 units.

The former Thomas
Ranch, near Manatee Com-
munity College, was annexed
several years ago, before the
8,000 acres were sold to
DiVosta Homes. Sarasota
County required some post-
annexation terms, which the
two entities are working out..
"If meetings (in January)
go well, it's only a matter of
how long it takes to draft the

EDC endorses schools referendum


For business leaders, keeping up with changes in
the workplace means graduates will need more
technical skills.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
The Economic Develop-
ment Corporation of Sarasota
County last week endorsed
unanimously the upcoming
schools referendum.
The referendum, sched-
uled for March 14, allows vot-
ers to decide whether to con-
tinue for another four years


the current 1-mill property
tax for education. It's the first
major endorsement by a non-
school-related entity in sup-
port of Sarasota County
School Board's position. Sara-
sota Classified/Teachers As-
sociation endorsed the refer-
endum early on.
"Excellent public schools
are essential to sustaining a
community where economic


diversity flourishes and fami-
lies enjoy living," said EDC
President Kathy Baylis. "The
EDC board recognizes that our
schools require sufficient
resources to equip students for
21st century employment"
It's the first major endorse-
ment by the organization.
EDC formed two years after
the original 2002 referendum.
Staying competitive
"When we talk to business-
es about locating to the area,"
Baylis said, "education is
always on the list of top three
concerns. In order to be com-


petitive, Sarasota County
needs to be considered one of
the top districts in the state,
even the country. It's very
clear our school district is on
the leading edge."
Baylis said the EDC board
had no reservations about
supporting the district's NeXt
Generation Learning plan.
"The board overall felt the
entire plan was important. Its
increased emphasis on tech-
nical skills definitely is a hot
button issue for economic
development. All pieces of
the plan are key (to its suc-
cess)," Baylis said.


"There is a real shift in
what employers need in the
workplace. Only about 25
percent of our high school
graduates needed technical
skills (in decades past). Today
and over the next 10 years, 75
percent of our graduates will
need technical skills. We think
it's important schools keep up
with changes in the work-
place."
The 'EDC is the private,
nonprofit corporation lead-
ing Sarasota County's eco-
nomic development strategy
to add high-wage jobs and
diversify the local economy.


The EDC provides busi-
ness assistance to companies
in Sarasota County in part-
nership with chambers of
commerce, local govern-
ments and other .organiza-
tions throughout the county
and the region.
The organization's board of
directors includes 29 repre-
sentatives of diverse organi-,
zations representing busi-
nesses, chambers of com-
merce, local governments,
the arts and education.

Research lab to study NeXt Generation plan


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County School
District has signed onto an
outside appraisal of its plan to
implement the district's NeXt
Generation Learning strate-
gic plan.
The school board approv-
ed a contract with Mid-conti-
nerit Research for Education
and Learning on Tuesday to
study the plan's potential
impact, and identify road-
blocks.
The quick study-will main-


ly target school leaders, such
as principals, teachers and
administrators. It will also
look outside the schools. for
feedback on the district's
strategic plan.
"We were seeking an inde-
pendent look at our plan not
unlike five years ago when the
Argus Foundation (and oth-,
ers) funded the SchoolMatch
study," said Superintendent
Gary Norris.
Researchers are trying to
determine the level of organi-
zational support for the dis-
trict's strategic plan, and if


there is colective agreement
among various constituen-
cies for the plan.
Specifically, McREL is
charged with identifying in-
ternal and external road-
blocks to carrying out the
plan, and if district intervie-
wees are poised to execute it.
The questions will be asked in
the context of the plan's im-
pact on closing the achieve-
ment gap, reducing dropouts
and enhancing career and
technical education.
MNcREL representatives say
the final written report is


designed to answer the fol-
lowing questions: Does the
plan provide a reasonable
protocol for increasing
achievement? Based on the
evidence, what parts of the
plan possess the highest and
least likelihood of significant-
ly increasing student achieve-
ment? Is the district budget
aligned with the plan?
Filling the gap
McREL will provide a
report to the district by Feb. 1.
The Education Partnership.is
paying the $47,500 fee for the


study.
.Partners include the Com-
munity Foundation of Sara-
sota County, Gulf Coast Com-
munity Fowidation of Venice
and the William G. Selby and
Marie Selby Foundation.
"The MNcREL contract will
assist the district to develop
strategies related to NeXt
Generation Learning-- so
critical to the lifelong success
of every student," said Debra
M. Jacobs, president of the
Selby Foundation. "This re-
sults-oriented assistance fills
gaps the district faces be-


cause of its lean administra-
tive staff who are already
working diligently on the
multiple initiatives. Our dol-
lars help the district leverage
the skills and talents of staff,
without increasing staffing
levels."
McREL, a nonprofit estab-
lished in 1966, is a regional
education research laborato-
ry.
It specializes in research
and development of K-12
programs, focusing on school
improvement efforts, leader-
ship and policy development.


Time running out to get flu shots; last cinic scheduled


STAFF REPORT
Public health officials en-
courage residents who have
not yet received a flu shot to
get one now.
"Sarasota County Flu and
rPneumonia Coalition part-
ners \\il% offer flu shots that
protect against this season's
regular flu to the public over
the next two weeks. After that,
there may be fewer opportu-
nides," said Sarasota County
Health Department's com-
munity adult immunization
coordinator Susan Goffard.
People who get a flu shot
can now expect to have
immunity in about two weeks
continuing throughout the flu
season.
In addition to vaccination,
the risk of contracting respira-
tory infections can be re-
duced by following a few sim-
ple steps:
Stay healthy: get plenty of
rest, eat healthful foods, drink
fluids and exercise.
Wash your hands thor-
oughly and frequently \ith
soap and warm water. (Anti-
bacterial liquid hand gels are
useful if soap and water are
unavailable.)
Cover your mouth when
you cough.
Stay home when you are
sick, and keep children home
from school and daycare
when they are sick.
Travelers are advised to
follow these tips and visit

CITY NOTES


Nothing more
than refinancing

A loan to Venice from
another city that some resi-
dents and many city
staffers had forgotten
about has generated plenty of
questions this past week.
Turns out the $20 million
loan from the city of Gulf
Breeze to Venice four years
ago was simply a refinancing
deal. Members of the Venice
Taxpayers League, a local gov-
ernment watchdog group,


noticed the loan and started
asking questions only to find
out many at city hall couldn't
remember the loan.
Council approved the refi-
nancing deal in 2001 for a
better interest rate. It consoli-
dated Venice's outstanding
debt in four other utilities
department loans, the oldest
one being from 1985. Repay-
ment of the loan is handled
solely through utility depart-
ment revenue.
As of Oct. 1, 2005, Venice's
total debt load was $37.7 mil-


lion which was why Tax-
payers League members
questioned the $18.4 million
loan balance. The four other
loans Venice is paying on
include the 1991 Utilities
Revenue Bond ($5.8 million),
the 2001 Capital Improve-
ment Refunding Bonds ($2.8
million), the 1996 Stormwater
and Drainage Bonds
($980,000) and the 2004 Gen-
eral Obligation Bonds ($9.7
million).
The 2004 bond has gener-
ated the most publicity


because it has helped pay for
beach renourishment, fishing
pier replacement, communi-
ty center expansion, and
acquisition and construction
of Tramonto Vista Park. Ven-
ice is estimated to make near-
ly $5.7 million in interest pay-.
ments while repaying the
2004 bond, according to the
2005-06 budget.

Holiday closures
for Venice
Venice City Hall will be
closed in observance of the


Christmas holidays on Mon-
day, Dec. 26. There will be no
interruption in the collection
of solid waste, yard waste and
recycling.
City Hall also will be closed
Monday, Jan. 2, in observance
of the NewYear's Day holiday.
Solid waste, yard waste and
recycling will be collected as
usual.

Venice boat parade on TV
The Venice Christmas Boat
Parade will air on Comcast
Channel 21 every Wednesday


throughout December. The
final opportunities will be
Dec. 28 at 3 p.m. and 6:30
p.m.

Arson in Venice?
Venice Fire Department is
investigating possible arson
in Pinebrook Park along the
fitness trail. Firefighters re-
sponded to several brush fires
in that area during the past
year.

story house," Moore said.
But the snow did show up
just in time for Christmas Day
that year, and it was all Moore
could do to get the .kids back
inside to open presents.

Memories
Valerie had just embarked
on a whole new life when she


turned 17 on April 11 this
year.
Her parents tried to keep
her distracted from her desire
to get a license. But after her
birthday, Valerie insisted that
she get one. She saved up
$1,100 for a car and insur-
ance..
The Moores helped her


pick out a Ford Escort ZX2
with a sunroof.
But they didn't buy it right
away.
Moore cleaned up the
front yard so he could sur-
prise'Valerie with it in a spe-
cial way. (He confessed he
usually stored a lot of stuff in
the yard.) He went out, got


the car and parked it in the
driveway.
"She was so happy. It had a
big muffler, and it had a rac-
ing clutch," he said.
Valerie only had the car
about a week when the
tragedy happened.-
She was last seen by her
parents smooching with


Meliti, who was well liked by
the Moores, at the Sonic in
Venice where they both
worked.
"Hey, are you guys on the
clock?" Moore asked them.
Valerie crashed late that
night after dropping her
boyfriend off at his home in
North Port after work.


Still, the family will contin-
ue to tend to the memorial.
"I'm glad I have the memo-
ries," Moore said.

HIT fromPagelA


Harrison said he is happy
with the court's ruling.
However, he said if he would
have gotten the ruling he had
hoped for, "the show would
have been over instead of
leaving more work to -be
done."
Even if breathalyzer results
were prohibited in court, that
does not mean everybody
who took one and is charged


with DUI -is home free,
Harrison said.
In every case involving a
breath (or blood) test, the
officer has to first believe the
person was impaired.
Indeed, a police officer has
numerous ways of determin-
ing probable cause to arrest
an impaired driver exclusive
of a breath test.
Among the ways are:


in-car video cameras
recording erratic driving
field sobriety tests'
eye tests
speech and behavior pat-
terns
the smell of alcohol on a
person
open containers in the
vehicle
All of the above may be-
assessed at the scene and


considered in a suspected
DUI case. An officer making a
DUI stop records the results
of field sobriety tests and his
impressions on special forms.
Breath and blood tests
merely confirm an officer's
suspicion that. a person is
impaired.
Harrison said he has about
35 clients who fall into that
category. However, other


attorneys representing scores
of other clients have also
joined in the legal challenge
to the test results.
Earlier this month, a
Sarasota County court tri-
bunal ordered the state to
turn over all information
about the Intoxilyzer 5000
breathalyzer to attorneys
challenging the machine's
accuracy.


That includes the manu-
facturer's "trade secret"
source code, in the software
that runs the machine.
The Florida breathalyzer
case ignited a worldwide
debate on the proprietary
nature of source codes.

Getting'a permit
Residents of Bay Indies do
not own the land, just their
mobile home. They pay a
monthly rental fee to Bay
Indies, buy their own mobile
home and then have Bay
Indies' construction and
installation department han-
dle permitting.
This has been an ongoing
problem, Patek said, dating
back at least five years, to
when the inspector used to


work in building permits. Bay
Indies has a reputation of fail-
ing to apply for permits, he
said, and that memory was
what prompted Patek to
check on the homes a month',
ago.
Management with Bay
Indies .did not return calls
seeking comment. Patek said
current management has
been cooperative.
Bay Indies has until the
Municipal Code Enforcement


Board's meeting in January to
obtain permits or risk maxi-
mum fines of $250 per day for
each violation.
The initial round of five
citations went out to 971 E.
Lucaya, 930 W Cayman, 980
Jacinto, 902 W. San Cay and
931 W. Freeport avenues,
according to a public records
search.
Over the years, the permit-
ting problem at Bay Indies
has come up, been corrected


and then returned, Patek said.
"The problem is there's
such a turnover in manage-
ment," Patek said. "Once you
about get it all worked out,
there's a new manager and
you're back at square one....
It's just really getting out of
hand."

Ongoing problems
Inspectors only ques-
tioned the mobile homes
about to be installed. A com-


prehensive compliance re-
view of every mobile home
on the 200-acre property has

Proper permits are needed
to make certain, mobile
homes comply with hurri-
cane regulations. The struc-
ture itself is certified by the
state when it's built, but ocal
governments like Venice are
the ones to make sure- the
foundation and tie-downs are
in compliance.


Patek said that is his major
concern, on top of any poten-
tial appearance, fire code and
setback violations.
"The tie-downs are what
anchors it to the ground,
keeps it from blowing around
like the' Wizard of Oz,' "Patek
said.

STAFF REPORT

There's still enough time to
help put a smile on the face of
a child who otherwise might
be destined to have a less-
than-happy holiday Sunday.
Florida's Future Children's
Charity reports that dona-
tions have been low this year,
due at least in part to "donor
fatigue" after the natural dis-
asters that have occurred
elsewhere in the last 12
months. But that puts local
families who are in need in

son, :vegetation is extremely
flammable. People are urged
not to dispose of lit cigarettes,
matches or other fire igniting
sources where they might cre-
ate a hazard, property dam-
age and even loss of life.
Venice officials are asking
anyone who sees anything
suspicious, especially in the
Pinebrook Park area, to call
Fire Marshal Jack Stevenson
at 480-3030 or the Venice
Police Department at 486-
2444. Anyone seeing smoke
or fire should call 9-1-1.

POWERS ro age
Ley estimates that residents
pay $150 in taxes annually,
per person, to support road-
building. He credited the
county commissioners' fore-
sight in increasing taxes. on
gasoline and telecorimmunica-
tions a few years ago.
"That has enabled rev-
enues to almost match the
costs to build necessary
roads," he said.
"But this only allows us to
pay for about half ofneeds for
roads," Thaxton observed.
Forty Florida counties use
impact fees to pay for roads,
schools un.d libraries. Huge
deficits paying for infrastruc-
ture is the norm in every
county. Thaxton, in discus-
sions with other task force
members, discovered that
Sarasota County is midway in
impact fee rates.
"We're not falling as far
behind as other counties in
supporting growth," he re-
ported. "I found that we are
the only county that uses
every tax source to pay for our
roads."
"Other counties have had a
significantly difficult time
paying their transportation
costs," Ley added. "The state's
transportation policy takes
funds from Manatee, Hills-
borough and Sarasota coun-
ties, and gives them to more
urban: areas. When counties
raised the gasoline tax last
time, cities got a windfall."
"The commission's willing-
ness to bite the bullet in this
respect has been rewarding,"
Ley said. "But despite the gen-
erosity of our public, land
costs for right of way and con-
struction keep rising beyond
budgets."

OUR VIEW




We can all just get along if we try.


ore than a month has passed since
the Hillsborough County School
Board reversed itself and reinstated
Yom Kippur, Good Friday and the Monday
after Easter as official school holidays.
The conflict began when a Muslim Amer-
-ican, Ahmed Bedier, born in Egypt, decided
to politely ask Hillsborough school officials to
add some Muslim holidays to the school cal-
endar. The school officials spent more than a
year thinking about what to do.
Eventually, rather than accept, what is
known as traditional American "pluralism,"
which includes respect for all faiths and cul-
tures, school officials decided to ignore Bedier's
request to give students time off for Eid Al-Fitr.
Later they decided to eliminate the traditional
Christian and Jewish holidays as well. ,
In a pluralistic society, minority groups can


participate fully with the majority, but are per-
mitted to maintain their cultural differences.
Hillsborough school officials were hardly
prepared for the national reaction to their deci-
sion to eliminate Christian and Jewish holidays,
especially after the Fox cable channel's "The
O'Reilly Factor" made it a cause celebre.
When a total of 3,500 e-mails poured in,
with many people around the nation blam-
ing Muslims for the decision, the school
board quickly reversed itself and reinstated
the Christian and Jewish holidays.
Was this an example of racism, or religious
prejudice? Are people simply reacting to
Muslim terrorist threats? Or is it part of the
effort by others to erase Christian or Jewish
traditions from America in the guise of the
constitutional ban on merging the church,
and state?


All these factors appear to be at work in
our society.
The more we hear about Muslim bombers
who kill themselves& and others, believing the
murder of people is Allah's bidding and a
quick path to heaven, the more people fear
all Muslims.
There are others in our nation who-
renounce God altogether. Their life's mission
to eradicate all hints of religion in our society.
One major difference between America
and the Middle East is our tolerance of other
people's views. That is why a devout Muslim
feels free to ask a school board to recognize
Muslim holidays.
It took years for Jews to gain acceptance in
our society. The birth of Martin Luther King
was not quickly embraced as a national holi-
day. Both still have their enemies.


People are prejudiced against smaller reli-
gious groups. In some parts of the country
even Evangelical Christians can be suspect.
But in America no one is jailed or harmed for
what they believe.
America is known as a large melting pot,
where there is room for everyone, regardless
of their beliefs, including 7 million peaceful
Muslims. They are not about to convert to
Christianity or to leave. School officials and
others should not fear the fact they are here.
After the school board's initial reaction,
Ahmed Bedier not only withdrew his request
for a Muslim holiday, he urged officials to
restore the Jewish and Christian holidays.
After that happened, he said he still hoped
the Muslim holidays would someday be rec-
ognized.
A gracious viewpoint.

ifiFERS FROM OUR READERS '


Bees were news to property owner


Editor:
On Oct. 19, you published an article, "Bees prove deadly in
attack on dog," in which Mrs. Pat Starr gave to you the infor-
mation on how a swarm of bees had killed her 2-year-old pup
dog.
I'm sure this did happen, on our property, according to our
neighbors that live close to us. They take care of our property
for us, since we are only here in the winter months.
As we left for our home in North Carolina April 2005, there
were no bees at all in the trees, fence or anywhere on our prop-
erty. .
It seems that in her report to you, that we are to blame for
this terrible experience of death of her dog.
She stated (according to your report) "her agonizing experi-
ence was made worse when she found out that the neighbor
(us) whose property the nest of bees resided on had known
about the hive and chosen not to remove it."
My question, how could we have known when we were in
North Carolina from April (first week) 2005? No bees were there
then.
We should and will not take blame for this terrible accident.
In respect to Mrs. Starr, we are deeply sorry that this hap-
pened to her dog. If anyone is (was) to blame, it's herself for not
watching her pet more closely.
In respect to us, we feel that your newspaper should run a
retraction to clear us of the blame of her dog's death. We knew
nothing of these bees on our property. They could have been
anywhere at anytime.

Shouldn't need to
pay for good press

Editor:
Since propaganda is a valid
tool of war there is nothing
wrong with the military using
the Iraqi press to present our
side of the war. It is wrong for
this administration to use
public money and pay news
people to present the admin-
istration's views as their own:
Armstrong Williams
received $240,000 to sell the
"No Child Left Behind" pro-
gram.
Maggie Gallagher was
paid $24,000 to write a story
on marriage.
Karen Ryan and Alberto
Garcia, actors, were hired to
pose as reporters and sell the
new Medicare program.
There would be nothing
wrong with these Lee-
Atwater-type dirty tricks if
they had not used public


money. The moral question is
something the president
must answer.
Lillian lannarone was cor-
rect, Cheney never said there
was no way he would serve in
Vietnam. When asked about
the military he said, "I had
other priorities."
When you look at Cheney's
six deferments four for col-
lege, one for marriage and
one paternity deferment (the
baby was born nine months
and two days after the pater-
nity ruling took place) -
without the quotes, Mr.
Kidwell was correct: There
was no way Dick Cheney was
going to Vietnam.

NEW YEAR? CALL US AT 2071111.


No discount for you!


No discounts! I'm responding to Let'em Have It's question,
should area restaurants offer full-time residents discounts?
Absolutely not. Wheri will this all end? The local merchants
here andirestaurants struggle enough during six months of the
year to make it and keep their health. They don't get a discount
on FPL or suppliers or anything else. Why should they go ahead
and discount for you being'a full-time resident? It's ridiculous.
It's hard. enough in these economic times to support a small
business and keep it going. And nowyou want to do discounts?
Absolutely ridiculous.


Reflections on 2005. As we
end the 2005 year, look, at
some of the good strides that
have been made. Sarasota

that Jon Thaxton's been work-
ing on for many, many years.
We need to start protecting all

Venice. Hopefully 2006 will
look at things, to preserve.,
Some more buildings. Save
the trees. Help protect our
environment, maybe find a
cure for red tide. Make sure
Venice High School stays
where it's at. Get out and sup-
port Venice High School
sports. Also help improve the
downtown area. There's so
many things that we as citi-
zens of the community can
do just by volunteering. I
encourage people to get out
and volunteer, it's good for the
community.
Respect our teachers. The
current school, board and
superintendent are no better
than a circus act. The'school
board is saying that there is no
research showing that small
classes make a difference. Yet
all the research out there is
saying small schools, small
classes, the kids do much bet-
ter. Also, they've yet to try to
do small classes. Most of the
classes have four or five stu-
dents more than they're sup-
posed to have already. And
the superintendent thinks
just by raising salaries of
teachers, you're going to get
better teachers.
Teachers don't go in this
business for money. Let's start
using bur money wisely and
let's make teaching a profes-
sion that is valued and
respected and doesn't break
the bank.
Jetty no-wake zone. I
would like to know if we're so
m mal conscious as to try
and save the manatee, which
we desperately need to do
due to red tide killing so many
this year and last year. Have
the no-wake zone at, the
beginning of the jetties. I've
seen the manatees come in
through the jetties as I've
been sitting down there and
people go gung-ho until they
get right at that sign and then
back off on it. I do enjoy going
down there, but it bothers me
that these people go in there
and don't shut it down until
the exact no-wake zone. I
think it should be when they
enter the jetties.
Cable competition. Would
someone tell me why I'm pay-
ing $60 a month for regular TV
service at this point for the
terrible TV shows we are
being fed here in Venice? If it
weren't for "Law and Order,"
"CSI" and a few other new
programs, there's nothing but
reruns being put on in the
Venice area. Just because
Comcast has the population
by the throat, why don't more
people complain about the
terrible service they are
putting forth? Why do we
have reruns this early in the
year? I hope that Verizon
comes into Venice soon so
that Comcast will get some
competition arid maybe start
offering better programs, or
maybe the population should
just start to cancel their ser-
vices and get a satellite dish,


which would be more reason--
able in price and still cover
the same programs. Granted,
TV offers not much else
besides violence, sex, gay-
outings. It has become a way
of life for most people. But at
the prices we are paying, they
surely could offer more for
our money than they are
doing currently.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Comcast picks
the channels it offers its sub-
scribers, but the channels them-
selves are responsible for what
they show.
No expert. Your columnist,
Ed Martin, used to be an
expert on zoning and now,
aren't we blessed that he is
now knowledgeable about
how the school board is
spending or wasting our
money. I'm voting no on the
referendum, and I can give
you stats that tell you why I
should vote no. Mr. Martin,
stick with things that you
know.
Nokomis helicopter? I live
in Nokomis and for about the
last month, around late after-
noon, four or later up to dusk,
there's been a helicopter fly-
ing low and circling around
Laurel Road and the Publix
shopping center and on
down. I'm wondering if, any-
body knows what it is and
why is it? Surely somebody's
not looking to develop anoth-
er piece of ground around
here, I hope. But please, if you
could, publish what it is and
why.
Forced out. This regards
the something stinks beside
' the fruitcake and whether the
Venice airport needs sound
and vapor barriers. We have
lived directly across the street
from the airport for eight
years and we've loved every
moment of it.
Since we've moved there,
they've put in a jet center. The
fuel, the vapor, the noise are
unbearable. This season we
have had to move and put our
condo up for sale. It is filthy.
We have put vinyl windows.
We. continue tp have black
soot all over the inside of our
unit. The noise at 11-12
o'clock at night, the planes


taking off at three to four
o'clock in the morning or
landing. The jets are very dis-
turbing. I am a cancer sur-
vivor, I am a heart patient,
and I can tell you that our
piece of heaven has been
gradually taken away from us.
We lived 8 miles from O'Hare
Airport in Chicago almost all
of our' life. We love the air-
planes. We love the airports.
We loved the Venice airport
when \We first moved there.
The dirt and the jet and sound
and the tmfriendliness and
uncooperation of the man-
agement at the airport have
forced us to move and we are
very disappointed.
Offensive letter. I was so
please to see that someone
else found that letter by Kathy
Bolam offensive.' Over the
years you've printed so many
of her letters and I have called
in the past. I don't know why
you continue to publish any-
thing that she writes.
Cracker-box condos. I have
a question for Mike Miller:
Does he have any kind of pro-
posal for the city of Venice
that doesn't involve trashing
what is is already there? Why
don't you try something
unique for a change? He does
the same boring stuff, noth-
ing different or unique. Tear it
out. Put in a premium crack-
er-box-like structure. It's bor-
ing, frankly. I bet it could be
better than that.
Barriers needed. Just no-
ticed in the newspaper about'
the vapor and sound barriers
at the Venice airport. I think
it's an excellent idea to inves-
tigate. Across the street in the
condominiums, sometimes
the vapors are overwhelming,
so it certainly must pose a
health hazard. I appreciate
whatever this survey might do
to help someone investigate
that.
Teacher pay. In regards to
our county school teachers,
I'm getting a little tired of
hearing that we need more
money, more money. I think
they got a pretty good deal
going. They work seven-hour
days, they work eight and a
half months a year, and then
in the paper today it says they
average more than $40,000 a
year. Then you put in their
benefits and those are all paid
for 12 months a year. So it
doesn't sound like a bad job to
me. If the money's not
enough, maybe they better
get another job for the three
and a half months they're not
working in the summertime.

A personal letter to Santa Claus


JOSHUA DOERRFELD
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Santa:
My name. is Joshua
Doeirfeld. I live in Florida, in
the great U.SA., and unlike
most ofyour letter writers, I'm
not under 10 years old.
Instead, I am a blessed 30-
year-old man with a loving
wife of 10 years and three
beautiful little girls.
My Christmas list this year
will be short, but it won't be
easy for an ordinary person to
accomplish. I knowyour elves
are far too little to capture the
true essence of this wish, so
let this be one you will work
on personally.
In our country, we've cele-
brated Christmas the same
way for many generations. In
recent generations, our coun-
try has gone mad. We, as a
nation, have opened our bor-
ders to the entire world with
the enticement of freedom.
Although our individual
responsibility as a human
being is to "love thy neigh-


bor," our kindheartedness
has backfired right in our
faces.
The "love thy neighbor"
expression is little more than
just an expression today. The
people of this country are in a
competition with one anoth-
er to see who wins. I have for
years wondered what that
prize was the prize they
wanted to win. I also won-
dered exactly what game peo-
ple were playing.
The nature of the game has
finally dawned on me. But the
prize just doesn't seem worth
playing the effort. The game is
life and the ultimate prize is
death.
I know this is Christmas
and one's spirit is to be filled
with joy, but to grant me my
wish you have to grasp the
complete meaning behind it,
to truly understand it.
The history:of the world
has proven to us that "he who
dies with the most toys still
dies." I. know your whole
image is spun around the giv-
ing of toys, but we have blown
toy-giving way out of propor-
tion in this country.
Please understand I mean
no hardship to you and your
elves, but my wish this year is
this: For each child in this
country, please provide a
photo and the life story of
another child one who
lives in one of the other coun-
tries you visit this night.
I ask that each child you


choose be one who simply
wishes for a bowl of rice,
instead of a new toy. I'm sure
matching the two children
together, considering the
length of your list, will be eas-:
ier than getting those deer to'
fly
I wish for the children in
this country, those who will
be our next generation; to
truly believe in life. With this
task comes the true difficulty
I ask for the adults in this
country to receive just one
thing for Christmas this year.
I ask that you burden their
hearts and minds with the
image of an adult living
amongst the children you
have chosen. Show them
what it's like to sleep on rocky
ground in the cold outside, to
eat rice once a day, if they are
lucky, and still work through-
out day just to survive.
Show them that Christmas
isn't really about the toys, it's
about a different gift. This
might open the eyes of people
of this great nation to the fact
that life isn't about all the toys
we've enjoyed, it's about the
life we have lived.
Even though it sounds as if
my wish is for everyone else, I
ask that you instill these wish-
es in my own family as well.
We may believe, but the reali-
ty of life is, we too are only
human, and it's so easy to for-
get

Employers thinking outside the (state) lines


BY ROGER BUTTON'
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST

The major problem con-
fronting, most employers on
the Sun Coast in the coming
season prompted two Venice
club managers to take an
entirely different approach:
They have hired seasonal staff
from southern Brazil.
Barry McDonald, manager
of the Plantation. Golf &
Country Club, and Lee Pires,
general manager of the Ven-
ice Yacht Club, are participat-
ing in an exchange student
program operated by CCUSA,
an organization that provides
cultural exchange programs
at summer camps, and in var-
ious work environments
worldwide.
The company undertakes
most of the groundwork in
other countries, including
Peru and Brazil: sponsoring,
the students, arranging visas
and employment documen-
tation and jointly selecting
candidates.
"Hundreds, and hundreds
of people wanted these jobs.
We interviewed 150 and some
applicants had traveled 17
hours by bus to meet with
us," said McDonald, who took
a flight to Brazil to interview
candidates.


They are enthusiastic to
come over here, wantingg to
get the good-paying jobs. Un-
fortunately, if their English
was not of a high enough
standard, they just turned
around and went back home.
"We hired 43. At Plantation
we have 14, the yacht club has
four and the rest are in Na-
ples," said McDonald.
Students are guaranteed a
certain hourly wage and a 40-
hour week, according to Pires.
He has undertaken the pro-
ject personally, wanting to
ensure that, because they are
under his watch they enjoy
themselves, but also work
hard to get good experience
to take home with them.
A company van will take
them grocery shopping, and
trips are planned to Disney
World and Key West.
Pires can also arrange ad-
ditional work, in which they
can use their spare time to
gain more experience.
The four young menr he
hired range in age from 21 to
24 years and are living in
quarters owned by and ad-
joining the yacht club.
' "It was a conscious deci-
sion to have all men to cross
train wherever they are need-
ed, often moving heavy
equipment, and for corimu-

nal living accommodations,"
said Pires.
It is, basically a test pro-
gram, according to McDon-
ald, who confirmed the work-
ers will be treated just like any
other employee.
"We are not carrying them
on our shoulders. They will be


treated like any other em-
ployee," he said.
"If this test program .does
not work, we will not be going
back to Brazil next year, so we
really want to make it work."
Each student pays to come
here on the program, includ-
ing travel expenses. CCUSA of


California sponsors the em-
ployers, so local costs other
than wages are minimal.
Arriving on Dec. 15 their
workers' program con-
cludes April 14, when they.
return to Brazil and have to
apply again for a future
CCUSA project-if they want


to return in 2007.
Only hours after arnving
they were having orientation
with Pires at the yacht club.
It is the third time working
in the United States for
Maycon Franchini, 23, who
has worked at Keystone Ski
Resort, Nev. University stu-
dent Rafael Lopes, 23, is on
his first program although he
has visited Europe.
The youngest at 21, Mar-
celo Rothbarth is on his third
work program, having work-
ed at a Mexico ski resort. Fab-
io Sousa, the oldest at 24, has
worked in a Nevada casino.
The yacht club appealed to
the students, who enjoy play-
ing tennis, surfboarding and
sailing.
McDonald brought along
the two females in his team
to meet their colleagues.
Sofia Caubet, 27, has previ-
ous experience in Park City,
Utah, and Fernanda Brito,
25, has worked in Squaw
Valley, Calif.
The students are from the
island of Florianopolis on the
Atlantic coast of Southern
Brazil.
McDonald and Pires agree
this could become an ongo-
ing project to relieve the
stress on existing staff during
the peak season. '


Dazzling new gallery opens in downtown Venice
D az 1..."e 'd ice,/


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS!

One of the largest art gal-
leries in South County has
opened on Venice Avenue.
Abbacino Galleria, mean-
ing "to dazzle" in Italian, 243
W. Venice Ave. (formerly
Manatee Golf), exhibits items
to appeal to everyone: water-
colors, mixed media, jewelry,
blown glass, woodwork, met-
al sculpture, painted clothing
and pottery, with prices rang-,
ing from $45 to $12,000.
Proprietor Christine Davis
from Connecticut attended
art school in Philadelphia,
majoring in graphics, adver-
tising, printmaking, photog-
raphy and glass blowing. She
met her husband, Harvey,
now a Realtor with Michael
Saunders, and they spent
three years in Jamaica, where


she had a graphics studio
international in addition to
her Philadelphia studio.
Eleven years ago they
.arrived in Venice,, where she
hts, exhibited professionally
in the line of advertising.
"There is a need for art-
work we have in this type of
gallery to put in the new
upscale homes and condos in
this area" said Davis.
Working with a group of 45
artists, she intends to bring to
Venice the styles of Naples
and St. Armands.
A grand opening with
artists is planned for mid-
January and, beginning in
February, twice a month
there will be a meet-the-artist
event. Private showings are
being arranged for local
groups.
The 3,500-square-foot up-
scale, contemporary gallery is
open 10 am.-6 p.m. daily ex-
cept Sundays. Call 485-7600.,
MED-KEY tops 9,400,
In late spring Venice Re-
gional Medical Center intro-
duced a new way to expedite
medical services for con-
sumers. MED-KEY, a most
successful program, has al-
ready resulted in more than


9,400 cards being issued at
the hospital and the VRMC
Health Park at Center Road in
the past eight months.
"During the, .curse, of a
year we'have between 27,000'
and 34,000 patients visit our
emergency room, and all
patients are encouraged to
sign up," said Kathy Turner,
marketing director.
The cardholders' medical
history is recorded onto a bar
code. When the card is pre-
sented at an admission point,
information required for hos-
pital registration is accessed
by computer, alleviating the
necessity of questions on
medical history.
lDetails are authenticated
by the admissions officer and
the process is speeded up.
In addition, the card offers
discounted merchandise and
services from many area*
businesses.
Enrollment in the MED-
KEY program can be accom-
plished on, the VRMC Web
site, veniceregional.com, or
calling 485-7711.

Southwest Florida rates high on 'nest egg' index


BY DAN MEARNS
STAFF WRITER


Have you seen the A.G.
Edwards TV commercials in
which everyday folks are tot-
ing around "nest eggs" of var-
ious sizes? Well, the nest eggs
people carry around here are
bigger than most.
Southwest Florida resi-
dents from Bradenton to
Naples practice excellent per-
sonal savings and investing
behavior, according to the
inaugural "Nest Egg Index"
released last week by the
financial services firm that
began the $20-million nest-
egg ad campaign in April of
this year.
The firm weighed a dozen
statistical factors including
participation in retirement
savings plans, personal debt
levels and home ownership
- and ranked America's 200


top-performing communi-
ties. Punta Gorda, Sarasota,
Fort Myers and Naples all
were among the top 75.
The A.G. Edwards index
ranked communities based
on Metropolitan Service
Areas as determined by the
U.S. Department of Labor.
The Punta Gorda MSA in-
cludes all of Charlotte Coun-
ty, the Sarasota-Bradenton
MSA includes Sarasota and
Manatee counties, the Fort
Myers-Cape Coral MSA in-
cludes all of Lee County, and
the Naples MSA includes all
of Collier County.
Naples was the top-ranked
Florida MSA on the survey
and ranked 18th among the
200 MSAs listed, with an
index of 113.92. The national
average was 100.00 and the
state average was 97.04.
Sarasota-Bradenton was

and 74th Florida tied with California

most communities making


the top 200 list, each with 13.
One of the purposes of the
Nest Egg Index, according to
A.G. Edwards, is to show the
geographic regions where
people are succeeding and
where they face the greatest
difficulty in building and nur-
turing their nest eggs.
"It's apparent that many
Americans are not setting
aside enough personal sav-
ings," said Robert L. Bagby,
chair and chief executive offi-
cer of A.G. Edwards.-
The demographic of
Southwest Florida is different
from many areas, Vito said,
due to the large number of
retirees who already have sav-
ings accounts, IRAs and in-
vestments.
Retirees moving into the
area and bringing their
nest eggs will continue to
be a staple of the area econo-
my.


Boomers and retirees are
attracted by the area's quality
of life and the "small-town
feel" of places like Venice,
Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte,
North Port, Englewood and
Arcadia.
The chore of maintaining
such ambiance falls to the
full-time residents who must
work for a living.
But working families are
having an increasingly hard
time finding extra money to
save or invest because of thle
cost of housing, among other
things.
Until those issues are re-
solved, some area nests won't
have any eggs at all.

wards.com.

Domestic violence leadsL



to air-and-ground search


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A police drama unfolded
before the very eyes of South
Venice residents late Monday
afternoon, complete with a
helicopter search for a sus-
pect.
Reports started coming in
from witnesses about 4:30
p.m. of "dozens of police cars
and police walking around
with AK-47s" in South Venice.,
An AK-47 is a fully auto-
matic rifle. While police SWAT
teams do use fully automatic
weapons, most SWAT teams.
do not use the AK-47, which is
deemed too unreliable.
Regular police officers
carry shotguns in addition to
their sidearms.
The sheriff's SWAT team
was not called out for
Monday's search. SWAT ordi-
narily does not do searches.


What really happened
Arrested was Ronald E.
Speer, 25, of Venice. He was
charged with aggravated bat-
ten' with a deadly weapon
(knife) and tampering with a
witness calling 9-1-1.
According to the police
report, a deputy went to the
victim's residence to answer a
family disturbance call.
Another deputy was there.
He said Speer had already fled
on foot.
The victim told police
Speer got into an argument
with his 20-year-old brother.
The victim said Speer grab-
bed his younger brother,
threw him to the ground and
started punching him in the
face.
The victim told Speer she
was going to call 9-1-1. As she
went for the phone, Speer
stopped hitting his brother
and grabbed her from behind


and slammed her up against
the wall. .
As the victim was getting
up off the floor, Speer went to
the kitchen and grabbed a
knife. He put the knife against
her stomach and said, "I'll -
-- kill you if you call the
police on me."
Then he fled.
Several police cars, the
sheriff's helicopter and K-9
units searched the area for
about two hours before find-
ing Speer.
Speer has a criminal histo-
ry dating back to 1997, in-
cluding drug charges, accord--
ing to court records.
There also is one charge of
firing a weapon or missile
into a dwelling, building or
aircraft.

The psychology of eyewit-
ness accounts to criminal acts
presents an interesting phe-
nomenon that has fueled law
enforcement debates
throughout history.
To some witnesses, more
than two police cars in one
spot translates into dozens of
police cars, and an officer car-
rying anything larger than a
handgun is carrying an AK-
47.
The effect ornwitnesses of a

'Tis the season: Do you know where

your credit card numbers are?


BY BOB ARDREN
PELICAN PRESS

Cyber crime, computer
hacking, identity theft it all
comes down to someone try-
ing to get between you and as
much of your money as pos-
sible.
But instead of a gun these'
thieves generally use a key-
board, and often, an Internet
connection. '
Sarasota attorney Tohn
Patterson recently brought a
high-powered panel of ex-
perts on computer crime to a
meeting of the Tiger Bay Club,
a panel that had worried-
looking Tiger Bay members
muttering about firewalls and
password managers as they
later left the room.
Patterson quickly got the
audience's attention pointing
out that somewhere between
$50 billion and $200 billion a
year is lost to Internet-related
thieves of one kind or anoth-
er. Much of the information
stolen and later used to
steal your money is
remarkably easy to obtain.
For example, Andrew' Ad-
kins of the University of Flor-
ida Law Center pointed out
that our credit card numbers
and passwords are usually
stored on the cell phones we
casually toss onto the table in
a restaurant or bar.
Worse, said Adkins who's-
also director of the Legal
Technology Institute at the UF
Law Center, those credit card
numbers, your name, address
and even driver license num-
ber is usually embedded on
every one of those key cards
you're given to open the door to
your room when you check
into hotel.
And it doesn't take a lot of
expertise to set up a card
reader to decode those cards.
In other words, the cards
should be treated like your
money because they're
certainly a gateway to it.
Right here in Sarasota,
panel member John Jor-
gensen is president of Sylint, a
company specializing in
cyber 'security. Jorgensen
related that he recently drove
around the community with a
laptop computer and found


67 wireless computer net-
works operating so openly he
could detect them just driving
by and 45 of them had no
security protection at all.
Not only that, Jorgensen
explained, but many small
companies that have their
computer systems breached
and data stolen are reluctant
to report that fact because
they don't want to news to get
out to their customers.
Simply put, Adkins said, "If
you don't want to see your
private information made
public, don't send it on the
Internet."
Only about 7 percent of the
cyber crime in Florida is actu-
ally reported, according to
Patterson. This despite the
fact Florida has some tough
laws with minimum manda-
tory sentences for cyber
crime. ;
"The question is," he ask-
ed, "is reporting cyber crime
effective?'
Russell Hayes, a special
agent of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation's Tampa divi-
sion, told the Tiger Bay Club
there are limitation'on th
effectiveness of reporting. For
example, Hayes pointed out
the U.S. Attorney's Office nor-
mally only prosecutes cases
involving more than $50,000.
There have been cases where
that figure was as low as
$15,000, he added, but only if
"very sensitive' data" were
involved.
That brought a response
from, panel member Chris
Golembe, vice president and
a manager of corporate fraud
investigation for Wachovia
Corporation. Golembe relat-
ed that Wachovia, a $500 bil-
lion company, sees $15 mil-
lion to $20 million a year tied
up in cyber crime.
Golembe admitted his staff
investigates cases and "wraps
them up with a ribbon," be-
fore shopping them around
for prosecution.
"Maybe we take them to.
the FBI, the IRS, Secret Serv-
ice, the post office or local law
enforcement," he explained,
in hopes of getting them
prosecuted.
"The biggest mistake is
waiting until it's too late,"


Jorgensen opined. "Much of
the time companies don't
know who is trying to invade
their data or how."
He said in some cases his
company "sets up a honey
pot," in an attempt to attract
the criminal back for another
try "and then we can make .
life miserable for that perpe-
trator."
Many of the panel mem-
bers provided tips on how
individuals or small business-
es can make themselves less
Vulnerable to cyber crime.
"If something shows up in
your in-box and you're not
expecting it just delete it,"
Hayes of the FBI suggested.
"Technologyis years ahead
of the law maybe seven to
10 years ahead," Adkins said.
"Nobody can look out for
you like you," he added, espe-
cially warning about "phish-
ing."
That's where computer
users are asked for their pass-
words and credit card num-
bers by what appear to be
authentic messages from
their banks or credit card
companies. Except the mes-
sages aren't authentic at all.
For example. Adkins show-
ed a phishing message on IRS
letterhead that asked for the
receiver's pin number.
"Ask yourself," Adkins
pointed out, "why would the
IRS want your pin number?"
"So the best defense is self
defense," Patterson concluded.
Admitting he's not what he
call? "a cyber per-," "Patter-
son became interested in in-
formation management after
being appointed to the Trial
Court Technology Committee
by the Florida Supreme Court
and the Technology Task
Force of the Florida Bar.
Detective Jack Carter of the
Sarasota Police Department
said later that nearly 10 percent
of the country's population was
involved in some degree of
identity theft over the past five
years. He suggested the best
test of whether that group
includes you is to monitor your
credit reports.
"Get a credit report and
use it as a base and then
check them at least annually,"
he suggested.

Indians win, but it wasn't ver


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Baseball

season is

almost here

We know it's not even
Christmas yet, but high
school baseball practice in
Florida begins in 24 days.
That's right Jan. 16.
Venice High will hold its
annual Green vs. White
game at 7 p.m. on Feb. 3.
There is a preseason tourn-
ament Feb. 10-11 at'Lake
Brantley.
The Indians will be enter-
ing their eighth season under
Craig Faulkner, who coached
VHS to second in the state in
1999.
Speaking of that, why isn't
that accomplishment men-
tioned on the school's Web
site. All the other runnerups
and champions are listed
front and center after you hit
athletics. Must be an over-
sight,
* *

Speaking of baseball, it's
nice to see Johnny Damon in
pinstripes, isn't it?
* *

The Venice High volley-
ball 2005 state champi-
onship team will be honored
by 'the Venice-Nokomis
Rotary Club at noon ,on
Thursday, Jan. 5, at Grace
United Methodist Church.
Head coach Brian Wheatley
will introduce each of his
players. Even cheerleaders
will be on hand. Mayor Dean
Calamaras will read, aCity
Proclamation.


Pat Riley is back coaching
in the NBA. We hear that he
has hired the human "'File
Cabinet" as a consultant.
Stay tuned ...


Wrestling draws very
well at Venice High. It's a
, shame that the Indians only
wrestle three home matches
all season. Two of them
already happened. That
leaves us with only one
coming up,
Perhaps wrestling would
be more popular around
campus if Venice could host
more matches.
Look at girls basketball.
There's 13 home games.
It's just not fair.
Put it down on your calen-
dar. Jan. 26 against Charlotte.
Be there.


They have a new state-of-
the-art PA system at Powell-
Davis Stadium. It sounds
super, so they say.
The sound system in
Venice High's north gym
needs a similar upgrade. Try
listening to what the an-
nouncer is saying from the
north side of the gym. Good
luck.
While we're on the topic
of the north gym, it indeed
could use some sprucing
up. Some banners are still
flopping. A fresh coat of
Green and White would look
nice.


If you think baseball prac-
tice comes early, how about
softball? They will start Jan.

New Balance Shoes is the
official sponsor of Venice
High boys basketball.


It wasn't pretty. In fact, it
was pretty ugly.
But the Venice High boys
basketball team, starving for
wins in .the early season, will
take it.
The Indians played hard
and persevered in a 54-50
victory over visiting Man-
atee High at the north gym
Thursday night.
Venice improves to 4-7
overall and 2-4 in Class 5A
District 12. Manatee, which
is even more hard-pressed
for aW, fell to 0-10.
The loosely called game
was physical and teetered
on the edge of out of con-
trol.
The Indians made their
free throws in the final min-
ute to cement the victory.
George Stritz sank a pair
with 55 seconds left to put
Venice up 50-46. Dwight
Sutton came back with a
baseline drive for the Hur-
ricanes to cut it to 50-48.,
Ilya Vasilevskiy was foul-
ed with 42 ticks left and
sank both tries. Manatee
missed at the other end.
Kyle Abney was fouled and
calmly sank both with 28
seconds left to put Venice
comfortably up 54-48.
Manatee scored at the final
buzzer.
Abney led Venice with 17,
points. Kalen Lyons chipped
in with 10 including a pair
of 3-point goals. Vasilevskiy
was a leader widthi 1 points.
Venice ran out to a 10-4
lead, but Manatee's pressure
forced turnovers. The Hur-
ricanes went on an 11-1 spurt
to take a 15-11 lead after
the first quarter.

GOLF RESULTS


RAY SIIBALDI
SPORTS COLUMNIST


As the poet mused nearly
four decades ago, "And so this
is Christmas, and what have
you done?
I find these words in my
head a. lot of late as I watch
one acrimonious media dia-
tribe after another surround-
ing how we wish each other
well through 'the month of
December. What the h.. e...
.double hockey sticks is wrong
.with us?
Hello, Merry Christmas,
'Happy Holidays, Happy
Hanukkah, Happy Christmas,
Happy New Year, Have a nice
holiday, WHAT DIFFERENCE-
DOES IT MAKE?!?!? Isn't the
point to simply pass on and-
spread "Peace on earth and
goodwill toward men?" I
always thought so.
In my younger days, I.
spent the better part of two
decades in the retail industry.
When this time of year came
*around, there was a simple
formula I followed. If I knew
I was speaking to someone
who celebrated Christmas,
guess what? I wished them
a Merry Christmas. On the
other hand, if I knew I was
speaking to someone who
celebrated Hanukkah, believe
it-or not I wished them a
Happy Hanukkah. And if I
was speaking to someone
and I did not know what or
even if they were celebrating
anything, I wished them-
Happy. Holidays. It was xiy
small attempt to be inclusive.
How's that for a concept?
Open ourselves up to our
fellow human beings regard-
less of what December holi-
day (if any) they celebrate.
Although I can't be certain,
somehow, in the back of my
mind, I believe that the Jew-
ish carpenter would think
1that'is a good idea.
In the spirit of this giving
season, I wish this to and for
-some of Venice's notables:
Bob Vedder ... a never-
,ending supply of out-of-town
,weekly newspapers.
Claude Lewis ... a one-way
ticket out of town for TWO
and a trip to the playoffs for
his Phillies.
Craig Faulkner ... a stop-
per to emerge and shine on
(his Indian pitching staff.
Jon Knott ... continued
perseverance and a trade


out of the Padres organiza-
tion to someone who will
give him his shot.
Adam Pavkovich ... also a
trade, away from the Angels
who are log-jammed with
infield talent throughout
their organization.
Brian Wheatley ... he got
his present in November, but
I still wish him another fall
trip to Lakeland and a return
of each member of his out-
standing staff.
Jose Velez ... wisdom as
he heads into the perilous
"Little League years" with his
"younguns." Also, some put-
ting instructions.
Danielle Durham ... That
her and her Florida Southern
Mocs enjoy another success-
ful season and only lose
three games.
Tommy Weatherholt ... a
vacation, a real vacation or.
in lieu of that nine holes of
golf EVERY week!
Dana Dumas ... All the
best at Georgetown and the
hope that she falls in love
with D.C. one of the most
beautiful cities in the coun-
try.
Keith Struble ... No rain
during the LPGA qualifier
this year.
Brian LaNinfa ... A tear
'em-up junior year at Missis-:
sippi State and a phone
call the first week of June.
Rod Parry ... Keep the
formula brewing at Lake
Venice, the course looks great.
The VHS softball team ...
A kinder, gentler Pete Dpm-
browski. Don't worry girls,
his bark is worse than his
bite. He really is a nice
guy '
Fran Valencic ... A return
to the post season for her
Tribe in Cleveland.
Arnold Hughey ... another
successful campaign on his
next step up the ladder.
And, on a personal note,
MNargeaux Sinibaldi, a wish
that she and her Tampa
-Spartans win their last volley-
ball match in 2006. .
For those of you who are
on the verge of becoming
grandparents for the first
time, I hope that you will
come to know the joy that
Jake Taylor Adams has
brought into the lives of my
wife and me. And for one
and all I leave you with this.
Somewhere in the vicinity
of 2000 years ago, a baby boy
was born near a place called
Bethlehem. He lived but 33 or
so years, a blink of an eye in
the eternity of time. His life
changed, forevermore, the
face of the earth and we
humans who inhabit it. In
fact, his impact was so deep
and profound that today,
roughly 40 percent of the 6
billion people who occupy
this planet today, believe
that he was God. His mes-
sage was a rather simple
one ... Love ... Pass it on.

Park promoters close out a productive year


BY FRAN PALMIERI
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN


The Friends of Oscar
Scherer Park, the citizen's
support organization for the
park, held its annual meeting
and holiday party recently at
the park's Nature Center.
Members of the Friends,
volunteers, campground
hosts, former Americorps
volunteers and park person-
nel and their families cele-
brated a year of accomplish-
ments for the group, which
supports Oscar Scherer's


annual events such as Earth
Day and the Scrub Jay 5-K
Race (to be held next year on
Feb. 18).
Laurel Schiller, president
of the Friends, reviewed
highlights of this year's work
including the trail rehabilita-
tion project revitalizing the
park's 15-mile long trail sys-
tem with new signs, trail
markers, an "All Trails" map,
two bridges and an observa-
tion deck overlooking Big
Lake.
Park volunteers provided
all the labor for this project,


with the able assistance of
park personnel including
Park Manager John Roche.
The culmination of the
evening was the presentation
of "Memories of a Buffalo
Girl," written, produced and
acted by Park Ranger Israel
ilzzy) Gonzalez and his wife,
Michelle Neitzel.
Based on newspaper col-
umns written by the late
George Higel from 1889 to
1935. the play looks back at
the "good old days" when the
Tanmiami Trail wuas just a trail.

VISITING THE GRANDCHILDREN 14B


Editor travels to Bangkok and Bali


The Marrirtt Resort & Spa in Bangkok. A flight attendant on Thai Airlines serves dessert.


, A


IA Bangkok ar
December.


Imagine being anywhere
in the world and not seeing
an American.
Americans are everywhere.
At least that has been my-
experience in all the places I
have traveled to, through the
years and around the world.
That was not the case
recently. My daughter Heidi
and I traveled to Bangkok and
Bali for two weeks, departing
in mid-November. We saw the
most Americans in Bangkok,
six at the Ritz-Carlton in Bali
and then, for eight days. not
one single American until we
got to Osaka, Japan, on the
way back to Venice, Dec. 3
and 4 and 4 (That is no typo,
but you will have to wait until
Part 4 of this odyssey to leant
about Dec. 4 and 4.)
It probably had something
to do with the warnings of the
U.S. State Department about
travel in Indonesia and also
with fears of Avian flu;,which
has led to some deaths in
both countries.
We did our research on the
bird flu before we left and felt
safe knowing we were not
going to be in the rural areas
where the flu has reared its
ugly head. We had no con-
cerns about our safety in Bali,
despite the two bombings,
which have occurred there
since our previous visits to
that country. Both bombings
were in areas with high con-
centrations of tourists, areas
that we have always avoided
for that very reason. Because
tourism fuels 80 percent of
the Balinese economy, the
Balinese have made a con-
certed effort to protect both
residents and visitors. A
future bombing in Bali seems
no more likely than in Venice,
Fla.
First flight
Concerned only with the
sights we would see and the
wonderful people we would
meet, we boarded a plane in


id Bali in November and.


Tampa for the first leg of our
adventure. After a plane
change at Washington's
Dulles International Airport,
we were winging our way to
Los Angeles where we would
spend the night before our
flight on Thai Airlines to
Bangkok.
The layover was necessi-
tated by the plane schedules
although it turned out to be a
nice break that enabled us to
have a leisurely dinner and
evening in L.A. and a late
breakfast before heading to
the Los AngelesAirport (LAX)
for the 12.5-hour flight over
the Pacific to Osaka and a
continuing flight of an addi-
tional five or six hours on the
same plane to Bangkok.
I had cashed in 240,000
United Airline miles so we
could fly first class, and as we
settled into seats that would
turn into beds later in the
evening, I knew I had done
the right.thing. Thai is sup-
posedly the fourth best airline
in the world and its atten-
dants demonstrated why
throughout the flight.
Within minutes of our
take-off from LAX, they were
taking our order for the first
meal while serving Dom
Perignon champagne and
potato chips. Not even blue
chips like the ones served on
Jet Blue plain old potato
chips, although even those
are better than the pretzels I
have begun to loathe on most
American carriers. For those
of us who could care less
about champagne, there was
Perrier and a whole list of
other drink choices.
Next came hot rolls and a
selection of wine followed by
a salad of Parma ham on hon-
eydew melon and a choice of
crab claws or caviar.
I lost track of the meal
courses but remember
French onion soup and the
rack of lamb entree at.the first
meal.


Second leg
Since it was afternoon in
my time zone, I watched
movies on my personal TV set
rather than sleeping. Two
movies later, we landed in
Osaka, where we deplaned
for about an hour. Back on
the same plane but with a
fresh crew, it was time for yet
another meal. This one began
with caviar and wonton soup
and included duck with cher-
ries as one of the entree selec-
tions. For dessert there was a
lemon layer cake.
Finally it was actually dark
outside. We had crossed the
international date line, lost a
day, stopped briefly in Japan
and as the clock hands ap-
proached midnight in Bang-
kokweflewinto what seemed
to be the largest airport I had
ever been to and I have been
to plenty of them all over the
world. There were not
enough jetways for all the
flights so we had to walk.
down the steps to the tarmac
and a waiting bus rather than
simply walking out a jetway.


.A 1---


.r *.'-.


At the bottom of the steps wel
boarded a bus and began a
long ride past the largest air-
line terminal I ever saw to the
customs area, discovering a
second perk of first class trav-
el. We had a Thai Airlines
escort who sped us through
customs and then made sure
we got our bags and found
the driver from the Bangkok
Marriott Resort & Spa, where
we would be spending the
next four nights. There were
so many drivers holding signs
for arriving passengers and so
many taxi drivers looking for
fares, that without such help,
our arrival in Bangkok might
have been much more chal-
lenging.
Bangkok
Matched up with our
Marriott driver we soon were
in a comfortable Marcedes,
sipping chilled ice water and
wiping our brows with the
first of many lemon-grass
scented chilled and damp-
ened washcloths. For the next
two weeks, nearly everywhere


we went, someone was offer-
ing us chilled bottles of water
and those wonderful wash
cloths a tropics custom, it
seemed. Some 40 minutes
later we were checking into
the hotel. Our room had a
beautiful view of the swim-
ming pool and the Chao
Phraya River that runs
through Bangkok. We would
cross that river many times as
we explored Bangkok but
first, it was time to sleep.
Unlike the many times I
have arrived in London,
Sydney or Rio first thing in the
morning, we were able to go
right to bed and to sleep
through the night so that we
could start the new day
refreshed and ready to ex-
plore. That is just what we
did, awaking about 8 a m. and
heading downstairs for the
hotel's breakfast buffet that is
included with the room.
Geared to its international
clientele, the breakfast buffet
had something for everyone.
In addition to the usual
omelet stations, there were an


assortment of items geared to
visitors from Japan, Germany
and several other places. The
juice selection was excellent
with guava, orange, grape-
fruit, papaya, mango and a
few others. There also were
pancakes and waffles, cold
meats, hot meats, a variety of
breads and pastries and sev-
eral varieties of fruit I did not
recognize, including two
melon-like fruits that had
thousands of edible seeds.
Guava and orange juice com-
bine very well as I discovered.
Shopping
Fortified with our first
breakfast at the hotel, we
headed out to take a quick
survey of the hotel and near-
by shops.
By 10:30 a.m. we were on
the Marriott's boat ferry,
crossing the river for our first
shopping trip in Bangkok. It
was Sunday morning but it
seemed as though everything
was open as we walked from

How to astonish your family


and friends this Christmas


Missionary to Uganda speaks


DONNA MARTONFI
RELIGION COLUMNIST


There is really only one
Christmas in particular my
entire family will never forget.
Neither will a lot of my
friends. My three sons talk
about it all the time. I'm quite
certain my great-grandkids
will be told an embellished
version of "Our Monm's As-
tonishing Attempt at a New
Christmas Tradition" for gen-
erations to come. I'm actually
tickled because it really wasn't
easy making such a dramatic
and lasting impression on a
bunch of anxious and curious
teenage boys who were eager-
ly anticipating their Christ-
mas presents. The expres-
sions on their faces clearly
showed they were hoping
their gifts were much bigger
than the tiny, rolled up scrolls
they observed sticking out of
the stockings hanging from
the mantle.
It all began one gloomy,
cold December night. Christ-
mas was just around the cor-
ner and it was about to catch
me flat broke, while at the
same time my credit was way
over its limit. Not a particular-
ly pleasant spot to be in just
dqys before Christmas. Sud-
denly, God gave me the most
ingenious idea. I cannot be-


gin to tell you how much fun I
had preparing what he
showed me. I laughed until
my sides hurt, which was a far
cry from the night before,
when I feared that Christmas
'91 could traumatize and scar
my kids for life.
I quickly assembled sup-
plies and paper as I put on a
large pot of coffee and got,
busy making homemade gift
certificates for everyone. I
started with the boys. I
imprinted each piece of'
paper with "The Certificate
Entitles You To:" Then I listed
things as follows:
AWeeklyJoyride to the Local
Mall (allowance temporar-
ily suspended window-
shopping strongly recom-
mended)
My Solo Rendition of "Silent
Night" -- (redeemable on
demand; instrumental ac-
companiment not included;
bring your own piano)
Eight Hours of Nonstop,
Continuous, Stimulating
Conversation (your partic-
ipation not required but your
undivided attention is ab-
solutely essential)
* Sixty Hours of Disaster and
Emergency Relief (experi-
enced, military-style supervi-
sion available while you clean
your desk, room and closet)
* Saturday Night at the Movies
- (black-and-white Westerns
featuring John Wayne and
Lone Ranger; advance seating
not available but buckets of
popcorn included)
* Unlimited Supply of Free
Hugs and Kisses (redeem-
able anytime and anywhere;
just close eyes and pucker
lips)
These were simply God-
ordained, so I was surprised


when the boys seemed totally
disinterested in my valiant
creation, and I was hurt when
one commented, "OK, that's
nice, now where are the REAL
presents?" Then he walked
round and round the tree
repeating, "Come on, they've
got to be around here some-
where."
My parents were presented
with certificates entitling
them to Twelve Piping Hot
All-You-Can-Eat Home-
Cooked Gourmet Dinners -
no reservations necessary;
just bring your own dessert.
My dad just peered over his
bifocals while shaking his
head.
He didn't seem amused.
Our %very good friends were
also offered renditions of "Si-
lent Night, Holy Night," but
they declined the offer.
Their only comment was,
"Please, promise us you won't
sing." *
I thought my brightest idea
was for our pastor. I offered
him Free Rook Lessons (play-
ing cards not included, of
course). He let me know in a
hurry that he didn't think
there, was anything wrong
with the way he played Rook.
Remembering that Christ-
mas still puts the biggest grin
on my face as God wipes
away the tears from my eyes.
But what thrills me the most
is the birthday card I made for
Jesus. I know he just loved it!

SOUTH NEWS


Merry Christmas,


everyone


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


Isn't it interesting how the
issue of wishing someone
happy holidays or merry.
Christmas has permeated this
season?
It is the time of the year
when members of the South
Venice Civic Association
come into the office to pay
their dues for next year. They
wish me a merry Christmas
then hesitate, "or should I
have said happy holidays?"
Back in my college days at
UCLA, I was a governess to
two boys whose parents were
Jewish. Because the boys were
adopted and I was a Lu-
theran, we all decided to cele-
brate both Christmas and
Hanukkah. You can imagine
the joy of receiving presents
all week long plus another
day. Later I learned that it is
not correct to recognize both.
And what about giving and


receiving greeting cards? I
usually select three types to
mail out: one box of humor-
ous, one religious and one
neutral. The last is so no one
will be offended either way.
Isn't that silly!
With all the hoopla about
the issue this year, I find
myself examining the cards I
receive from family and
friends to check if they are
being politically correct in the
verse selected, or was it a sin-
cere expression of their mes-
sage?
Christmas shopping has
presented a major challenge
to the store clerks. One clerk
wished a customer a happy
holiday and the lady cracked
back, "Which one?"
This week it was very obvi-
ous during last-minute shop-
ping that no one in the stores,
the grocery-store or even
the restaurant waitresses -
said anything at all except
thank you.
They probably were cor-
rected too many times.
It's all too complicated for
me.
Merry Christmas and hap-
py NewYear anyway.

Trees lighten up Christmas


BY SHELLEY DRAPER
STAFF WRITER

The cars aren't stopping in
front of Marva Gooch's house
in North Port to sightsee, even
though she has a unique way
of saying "merry Christmas":
Her house is brightly lit with
167 decorated Christmas
trees.
The Christmas tree lights
can't be seen from the street,
because all 167 trees are
inside.
"I love decorating and ex-
pressing the blessings of the
season with my beautiful
trees," Gooch said.
This 60-something-year-
old North Porter has been
trimming her home with trees
and lights for 12 years. Back
then she started with 80 trees
and the collection has been
steadily growing.
Gooch says she believes in
decorating for the Christmas
holiday and begins in early
November. However, her love

As decorations start com-

starts planning for a new year
of tree hunting. Gooch had
special shelves constructed
that go from floor to ceiling in
her garage to accommodate
storing 'all 167 deesg'"and

Everyyear, Gooch says, she

poetry with family and
friends.
She marvels at the serene
calmness that the Christmas
tree lights give her home.

the 5-year-old center practic-
ing all endoscopic procedures
including diagnostic colon-
oscopy. However their med-
ical office space at the Center
Road Health Park is cramped
and insufficient.
The endoscopy center
occupies 6,000 square feet on
the 2.25 acre lot allowing
ample space to construct
alongside the Medical Office
building on the corner of
Ridgewood and Venetian
Parkway. It will be a 13,000
square-foot new building
with two floors. Initially there
may be three or four gas-
troenterology physician's of-
fices upstairs, and in five
years demand for the services
will necessitate an increase to
eight physicians.
Doubling and possibly,
tripling their volume DeMasi
confirmed they will hire more
nurses, medical assistants,
technologists and reception-
ists.
Preparing for this very big
$2.5 million project DeMasi
with Kondapalli traveled all
over the country looking at
medical office buildings in
Seattle, Chicago, Baton Rouge
and St Louis. Combining all
the information they have
purposely designed the new


project incorporating. a com-
plete paperless electronic
computerized medical rec-
ords operation integrated in-
to the surgery center.
Patients are referred from
Naples to Bradenton for their
new endoscopic ultra sound
special procedure to identify
pancreatic cancers. Pill en-
doscopy technology intro-
duced in, the past two years
involves a patient swallowing
a small camera pill which
takes two.photos per second
on both sides as it travels
down the small bowel, 33 feet
small intestine and 5.5 feet,
larger intestine/colon. The
patient does a normal days
work or relaxation as the pill
travels through an eight to 12
hour period along the gastro
intestinal tract.
A small recorder worn on
the waist belt digitally records
all the information into a
video enabling the physician
to determine from the record-
ing, tumors, bleeding areas,
and inflammatory Crohm's
disease. All procedures will
continue in the Endoscopy
Center.
State-of-the-art technolo-
gy will enable a special

set-up.

WHY FLOSS?
The basic objective of flossing is to mechanically remove plaque from
between the teeth, especially near and under the gumline. Flossing
does three things: Cleans teeth of plaque and food debris, freshens the
mouth, and fights plaque buildup.
Why floss? Why not just do a thorough job of brushing and be
satisfied that your teeth and gums are really protected? Well, even
careful brushing reaches only three of the five tooth surfaces exposed
to the damaging effects of plaque and plaque microorganisms. If you
brush but don't floss, you are really doing partlof the jobl Those inside
surfaces between teeth are the real problem areas. Brushing effectively
cleans only the top, front, and back of your teeth. This means that 40%
of your tooth surfaces do not have plaque removed from them if you
only brush.
Once gum disease gets a head start, it is precisely in these between-
the-teeth that it is the most severe.

BANGKOK from Page B
he boat dock about a block or
so before turning down the
first street we came to.
Passing myriad streetside
food vendors and a Mc-
Donald's that "McDelivers"
we turned down yet another
street in search of something
other than food to purchase.
We did well, finding one shop
after another that seemed
filled with intriguing things to
buy, especially clothing.
Armed with the equivalent
of about $200 in Thai Baht
each (8,200), we were ready to
wheel and deal. Thai Bahts
are divided into 100 Santang,
with notes for Bahts, 10, 20,
50, 100, 500 and 1,000. At
shop number one I found a
silk jacket for 5,500 Baht, or
about $22. On a roll, Heidi
and I quickly acquired about
as much as we could carry
and decided we better head
back to the hotel:
No sense filling the empty
suitcase all on the first .day,
especially when the Marrion
pool beckoned.
Surrounded by lush tropi-
cal gardens, the pool was
where we spent some of every
afternoon that we were in
Bangkok We would change
into swimsuits in our room,
head down to the pool, pick
up a couple of big blue and
.white striped towels and find
our place in the sun. By 2:30
p.m. we were hungry so order
lunch by the pool. I had blue
crab salad with avocado and
mango, all served on lettuce.
The price 200 Baht or
about $5. Heidi has Pad Thai,
finally able to eat her favorite
Thai food in the right place--
Thailand.
By 4 p.m., we had a sur-
prise. The air had a chill to it.
Wrapped in our towels, we
tried to tough it out but with-
in 30 minutes we decided to
head back to our room, one of
139 deluxe rooms with a river
view. Bougainvillaea in full
bloom edged our balcony
and all the other balconies
facing the river. The hotelhas
180 deluxe rooms, 79 junior
suites, .14 deluxe suites ahd.
one royal suite. All the rooms..
have in-room safes, stocked
mini bars, color TV, in-room
plug and play broadband
Internet access, data' ports
and other more common
amenities.
The view was so spectacu-
lar, we spent some time tak-
ing photos from our balcony
before getting ready for din-
ner at, of all places in
Thailand Trader Vicks, one
of the hotel restaurants. It had
been years since I had been to

a Trader Vickis and was most
surprised to find one here but
the food and views were'
good. The hotel also has a
Benihana Japanese Steak
House,. the Riverside.,Terrace,
the, Rice mill, the Market
where we had breakfast, 'a
variety of bars and the'
Manohra Dining Cruise Boat,
which we enjoyed on our final
night in Bangkok.
We ate all our breakfast
meals at the Market, had
lunch poolside every day and
one wonderful dinner at the
Riverside Terrace.
More shopping
There was one more shop-
ping trip into downtown


Bangkok, a frustrating trip
that led us to a wonderful
mall with too many things to
buy that we could not possi-
bly carry home with us. When
IJ was told it would coQst.$496
to ship a squard 'meter, I
decided I could live witli6ut
few items that I would have
liked to buy. We found our
way easily to the vertical mall
on the elevated train system,
buying our tickets from vend-
ing machines in the station.
Once near the shops, we
walked down some streets,,
listening to music that was
piped all over town the
same music so that you could
listen to it seamlessly as you
walked. It helped to like rock,

'n' roll and it may have been
that kind of music because
we were in he vicinity of the
Bangkok Hard Rock Cafe. We
took' a break for Cokes and
did some shopping in its gift
shop too.
Most of another day was
spent visiting temples that
were within walking distance
of the river. We traveled there
on a tourist boat that allowed
one to get on and off as many
times as needed during one
day. We also took the elevated
train to a shopping mall.
Dinner cruise
Every meal was wonderful'
but none was so special as the
Manohra dinner cruise. It is :
practically the law that Bang-
kok visitors take a river cruise.
The Manohra cruise has to be
among the best. Owned by
the owner of what is consid-
ered the best spa in Thailand,
the two Manohra ships offer
some memorable experi-
ences ranging from a dinner
cruise or Thai cooking school
to what has been dubbed the.
Orient Express of the River
cruise. The latter is a three-
day, two-night trip, on the
Manohra Song, which offers
space for up to four couples
on,a cruise to Ayutthaya in
unmatched luxury and com-
fort. The overnight cruises
depart every Monday and
Thursday. q r
The dinner cruises on tl'e
1Manohra dining barges oper-
ate nightly 7:30-10:30 p.m.,
with seating for 40 guests.
There also is a daily sunset
cruise departing at 5 p.m..
Our cruise cost approxi-
mately $45 per person and
included a delicious Thai set
dinner. We sat at the bow end
of the ship, right behind the
pilot. Not only did we have
the best view in the cabin, we
also had the chilliest as it was
an open-air cruise. That may


have been my biggest sur-
prise in Bangkok.Each after-
noon, it got downright chilly
at the pool and this night,
even with a long-sleeved jack-
et over my outfit. I was cold,
so cold that the kind waiter
brought me an extra linen
tablecloth to use as awrap.
Despite the cold, I would
not have missed this cruise
for anything. We had sailed
past the same sights on a day-
time cruise the preceding day
when we visited many of the
temples in Bangkok. At night,
the \iew was even more spec-
tacular as city lights vied for
our attention with the gleam-
ing golden roofs of those tem-
ples and the National Palace.*
There were several courses to
the meal, which featured a
selection of appetizers, cook-
ed meats including duck, beef
and pork. all fixed Thai style,
but only mildly spiced,
steamed vegetables and a
selection of desserts. Hot tea
was to go back aboard the
Manohra but for one of its
Thai cooking classes. The-
class includes a stop at a local
market where you choose the
ingredients needed for the
day's recipes, which will be
prepared as the boat sails
along the river. I definitely will
return to the Marriott Resort
& Spa. I am one of those "if it
ain't broke, don't fix it kind of
people." The Marriott had
everything I "could possibly
want in a hotel and more.
Besides, I have to return to do
some of the things.I wanted to
do but did not have the time
for in just three days that
cooking class being at the top
of the list. I also would like to
experience.a Thai massage or.
some other treatment at the
resort's spa.

But it was time to move on
to the next part of our adven-
ture.
By 11:30 p.m. we had. re-
turned to the room, packed
and tucked ourselves in bed
for our last night in Bangkok. I
had taken a large empty bag
to fill with treasures on our
two-weektrip. We had been in
Bangkok for a total of four
nights and three days and that
bag was already filled. With
nine days of shopping in Bali,
I was in trouble.
At 6 a.m. we were down-
stairs, checked out and in the
Mercedes for the ride back to
the airport. Again, given the
size of that airport, we were
grateful to have the help of the
Marriott driver to get us to the
right terminal area for out
flight on Thai Airlines to
Denpassar in Bali,
Once at the airport, it also
was nice to be able to spend
time in the Airline's Orchid
Room, where we had break-
fast as we had left the hotel
before its restaurants were
open. The lounge had fresh
fruit, croissants, tea, soft
drinks and a variety of juices.

Finally at 10:50 a.m. we were
on our way to my favorite
place in the world, just in time
for Thanksgiving.

Part II of this four-part
stone rof Bangkok and Bali
will be found on the front of
the Our Town section of the
Venice Gondolier Sun on Dec.
30. Parts, III and IV will be in
the Our Touwn Travel Section
in Januant'.

A Touch of Spice
Films about food are often best
approached with the same wariness
as the blue-plate special at an
unknown greasy spoon. But this
one's the genuine mouthwatering
article. Fanis (George Corraface) is
an Athens astrophysicist who returns
to his grandfather's Istanbul spice
shop where, 35 years earlier, he had
his first glimpse of the secrets of life
and how they can be interpreted in
culinary terms. He learns of the'
miraculous qualities of cinnamon, fo,
example, as well as the meaning of
salt pnd of pepper and how every-
thing from astronomy to sex can be
understood through them. This semi-
autobiographical first feature by
UCLA-trained Tassos Boulmetis han-
dles the tricky subject of Greece and
Turkey's tangled political relations
over the past few decades with as
much delicacy as a master chef art-
fully de-bones a fish. Viewers in
Greece, where it outgrossed even
Hollywood blockbusters, made this
the most successful film of the year,
and it was Greece's Oscar entry for
Best Foreign Language Film.

Good Night and
Good Luck
"Good Night, And Good Luck"
takes place during the early days of
broadcast journalism in 1950's
America. It chronicles the real-life
conflict between television newsman
Edward R. Murrow and Sen. Joseph
McCarthy and the House Un-
American Activities Committee. With
a desire to report the facts and
enlighten the public, Murrow, and his
dedicated staff headed by his pro-
ducer Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba
in the CBS newsroom defy corpo-
rate and sponsorship pressures to


examine the lies and scaremonger-
ing tactics perpetrated by McCarthy
during his communist 'witch-hunts.'A
very public feud develops when the
Senator responds by accusing the
anchor of being a communist. In this
climate of fear and reprisal, the CBS
crew carries on and their tenacity
will prove historic and monumental.

Rumor Has It
Sarah Huttinger's (JenniferAniston)
life is in a tailspin. She's finally
agreed to marry her boyfriend Jeff
(Mark Ruffalo), but isn't at all sure
that marriage is what she really
wants ... in fact, she's not sure what
she wants in general. As conflicted
as she is about her love life, her pro-
fessional life isn't much better an
aspiring journalist, Sarah's career
has stalled at the New York Times
obituary column. To top it all off,
she's on her way home to attend her
sister's wedding, which means
spending a lot of time with her ten-
nis-obsessed Pasadena family.
Somewhat of a black sheep, Sarah's
never quite felt a part of things when
it comes to her relatives. But when
she meets Internet millionaire Beau
Burroughs (Kevin Costner), their
encounter unexpectedly unlocks
some well-kept secrets that may
help Sarah uncover the truth about
her family and finally discover who
she truly is. 1 hr. 36 mins.

Syriana
From writer/director Stephen
Gaghan, winner of the Best
Screenplay Academy Award for
Traffic, comes Syriana, a political
thriller that unfolds against the
intrigue of the global oil industry.
From the players brokering-back-
room deals in Washington to the
men toiling in the oil fields of the
Persian Gulf, the film's multiple sto-
rylines weave together to illuminate
the human consequences of the
fierce pursuit of wealth and power.
As a career CIA operative (George
Clooney) begins to uncover the dis-
turbing truth about the work he
has devoted his life to, an up-and-
coming oil broker (Matt Damon)
faces an unimaginable family
tragedy and finds redemption in
his partnership with an idealistic
Gulf prince (Alexander Siddig). A
corporate lawyer (Jeffrey Wright)
faces a moral dilemnma as he
finesses the questionable merger
of two powerful U.S. oil companies,
while across the globe, a disen-
franchised Pakistani teenager
(Mazhar Munir) falls prey to the
recruiting efforts of a charismatic
cleric. Each plays their small part
in the vast and complex system
that powers the industry, unaware
of the explosive impact their lives
will have upon the world.

REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIED


Waterford's Carina model is ageless


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The two-bedroom, two-
bath Carina model is a main-
tenance-free detached villa
built by Waterford construc-
tion in 1990.
There is a possible third
bedroom or den just off the
entrance area of the home.
Recently listed by Gae
Stewart of ReMax Realty, the
home, at 1441 Colony Place,


has a greenbelt view along the
back of the property.
The view can be seen from
the great room, lanai and din-
ing room.
Both bedrooms have walk-
in closets and there; is an
additional linen closet adja-
cent to the second bedroom.
The walk-in closets further
serve as a buffer between the
two rooms, which are both on
the same side of the 'great-
robm plan home. The second


bath, adjacent to the second
bedroom, serves as a guest
bath for the entire house,
including that possible third
bedroom.
The master bath, along the
back of the house, offers a
spacious layout featuring a
centered jetted tub, flanked
by twin vanity sink areas, a
closeted toilet at one end and
a separate shower at the other
end of the generous space.
Tile covers the floor of the


kitchen and adjacent laundry
room, which also serves as a
convenient passage between
the attached two-car garage
and the kitchen.
A counter pass-through
facilitates serving and table
clearing in the dining room,
which is toward the back of
the house past the kitchen. -
A cathedral ceiling in the
great room offers the feeling


of additional space, which is
further augmented by the
adjacent dining room and
nearby lanai.
Roof overhangs help cool
the house and offer protec-
tion to front-door visitors in
inclement weather. The roof
is flat tile.
There is public water ser-
vice, a central sewer and a
built-in sprinkler that uses


reclaimed irrigation water.
The house is at 1441
Colony Place, a maintenance-
free neighborhood in Water-
ford. There is a community
pool and an annual mainte-
nance fee of $866.
Listed for $379,900, the
1i;'916-square-foot house can
be seen by appointment. Call
Stewart at (941) 488-6262 or
486-8686.
