Santa gets by with help from his friends


Local Venice Santas Joe Giorgianni and
Ron Gillis get a hoot out of Christmias.


BY GREG GILES,
STAFF WRITER


Guys who play Santa
have stories. Stories of joy.
Stories that make you sad.
But mostly, stories that
make you laugh.
They have a few things in
common. Like a bellowing
voice. And a healthy sense of
humor. They need it.


Not your average Joe
Take Joe Giorgianni, who
writes a humor column for
the Gondolier Sun. He hap-
pened into the Santa busi-
ness 25 years ago..
Gibrgianni recalls he
.came into possession of his
favorite Santa suit 20 years
ago while on a deer hunting
trip in Northern Canada. On
his way back to Florida he


had a layover in Ontario.
With hours to spare
,before the next leg of his
journey, Giorgianni took a
cab to hunt down Malabar
Costume Co., one of Can-
ada's premier costume and
theatre apparel stores,
known for its Santa suits.
"The Santa department
must have been 5,000
square feet," said Giorgi-
anni. "I laid out $400, a sub-
stantial amount. for a Santa
Claus suit. 20 years ago.. I
took the beard and wig with


me on the plane and they
shipped the rest.
"It was near Christmas
time. On the plane the stew-
ardess and I got to talking.
One thing led to another and
before you know it the stew-
ardess put the beard on and
went about her business up
and, down the aisle. She was
the bearded stewardess. That
was a lot of fun."

ABC7

What began as an appeal
for help from ABC 7 viewerss is
now a Christmas wish grant-
ed for some 300 Gulf Coast
families.
Marie Baia of Venice
recently returned home from
a mission of mercy: bringing
Christmas to hurricane vic-
tims in Bilo.xi, Miss.
It was her and her daugh-
ter's idea to bring thousands
of presents to those who lost
everything after Hurricane
Katrina, and with local help. it
worked.
She said that after ABC 7
ran their story in early De-
cember donations of toys and
home goods poured in and
they were able to nearly fill a
donated semi truck from PGT
.Industries to transport all the
presents.
Today the family is back in
Venice after gathering goods
for months and delivering a


semi truck full of joy to hun-
dreds of families.
"The fact that a little thing
like a toy for a child or a hew
set of pots and pans for a
family that has nothing it
was worth every bit of it," Baia
said.
They also came back with
pictures and a message from
those still dealing with Hur-
ricane Katrina every day.
"It's as if it's a war scene."
she said. "I know people keep
saying that, but it's true. It
doesn't look any different
today then it did the day after
the hurricane hit. The only
difference is you can pass
many of the streets."
'You did it'
The family said that while
most of the attention goes to
areas like New Orleans and
the rest of Louisiana, there are
still hundreds of thousands of
others looking for help.

Red tide cure: Seeing is believing


Venice High gives a demonstration to city officials

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
TIM JEFFERY


Red tide is back already,
after a brief disruption called
Hurricane ,\rilma.
A new Karenia bre\is red
tide bloom along the coast of
Southwest Florida extends
from southern Pinellas to
northern Sarasota counties,
according to the Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute.
Nearshore concentrations
ranged from very low to low.
One sample in Sarasota Bay
from early in the week, at New
Pass where Mote Marine
Laboratory is located, was
medium. It's enough to kill
fish.
So it was with renewed
interest thatVenice High's sci-
ence teacher Charlie Powell
gave a demonstration of local
inventor Bob Rigby's red tide
cure to area officials and
activists.
Powell described the test
process by which he proved
the solution that kills Karenia

bresis, die dinoflagellate that
causes red tide, actually
works, and explained why
certain types of fish were used
to test the formula.
The purpose of the dem-
onstration, held Wednesday
morning, was to dispel misin-
formation even disbelief-
about a cure.
"I wanted to let officials
wimess firsthand how it kills
red tide without harming
other marine life," Rigby said.
Show me
Sitting at somewhat
cramped school desks for
part of the demonstration
were Sarasota County Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton;
Charlotte County Commis-
sioner Tom Moore; Chair of
the Marine Advisory Council
for Charlotte County, Mel
Staudmyer; a representative
for Sarasota City Commis-
sioner Lou Ann Palmer;
staffer Christina Knight from
Sen. Mel Martinez' office;
Realtor Judith Hamilton; and


Richard Leydon and Lisa
Leydon-Surdam,. a father-
daughter team from Little
Gasparilla who run Red Tide
MAlert, a local organization that
tracks red tide and efforts to
mitigate its impact.
Each took turns examining
Karenia brevis extracted from
a beaker under an electron
microscope. They also looked
at hundreds of healthy mysids
(shrimp-like crustaceans) in a
separate small aquarium.
The mysids are almost
transparent and barely visible
to the naked eye about
3/32nds of an inch. They are.
the proverbial canary in a coal
mine, said Powell the or-
ganisms die easily when ex-
posed to red tide. That's why
they are EPA-approved for
this kind of testing, he said.
Mysids are so fragile that
Powell used a small beaker to
extract them because using a
small fish net would kill them.
He then drained most of
the water from the beaker
containing mysids and emp-
tied it into the beaker con-
taining Karenia brevis. Norm-
ally, red tide in this amount,
about 100,000 per million,
would kill the mysids in short

Tropical Bob:


Special day


*IN *


Tropical Bob can't believe
we've come to the point where
T.B. must wish you "Happy
Whatever."
Today is not a whatever day.
Today celebrates something
very specific. Today is the day
chosen to rejoice in the birth
of a man worshipped by mil-
lions as the savior.
The man was named Jesus
and people called him Christ.
Argue if you must about his
origin, but acknowledge that
no man in history has left the
legacy of this man. No man's
influence has been greater. No
man's moral teachings have
been wiser.
T.B. believes those are rea-
sons to celebrate and wishes
you a Memrr Christmas.

STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County has sent
out a call for artists.
The Sarasota County Arts
in Public Places Program
plans to select an artist whose
work will grace the lobby of
the new county judicial cen-
ter, now under construction.
The county will accept


applications for the $120,000
project until Feb. 24, 1997.
In 1995, commissioners
decided to devote 1 percent
of construction costs on new
county buildings for the pur-
chase or commission of art.
Although the city of
Sarasota has had a long-time
policy supporting public art,
the judicial center represents
the first major project for the


county. The county also plans
to incorporate art into the
design of the proposed library
at Five Points in downtown
Sarasota.
The art project will incor-
porate three 10-foot high, 7-
foot wide niches of a wall in
the new judicial center's
lobby. The $120,000 figure
includes design, travel, mate-
rials, construction, installa-
tion and all other costs asso-


cited with the project. ,
A nine-member jury will
vote on the projects and will
include members of Arts in
Public Places Committee, the
center's architect, a county
government representative, a
judge, a member of the coun-
ty's Art Council and a citizen
with knowledge of art.
Two or three finalists will
be asked to visit the site and
make a specific proposal.


The jury will consider a vari-
ety of artistic mediums,
including tapestry mural

Siesta sand project may not



have been ready by Feb. 1


Definitely not Jacob Marley


County officials recently postponed the project
because contractors are unavailable. Federal and
state authorities still have not issued coastal
dredging permits for the work.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

There was no iron-clad
guarantee Sarasota County
could have launched its
$8.75 million South Siesta
Key sand replacement pro-
ject in February, even if qual-
ified contractors were, avail-
able to submit competitive
bids and put dredging crews
to work.
"No, we do not have fed-
eral and state permits in
hand," said Laird Wreford,
the county's coastal resources
manager. "But we have made
progress and are pushing
hard to move that process
along. We also have a Jan. 25
public hearing with the state
to deal with."
A few weeks ago the count -
ty announced it would post-
pone until Nov. 1 the sand
replacement project between
a point about 3,000 feet south
of Point of Rocks to the
Midnight Beach area at the
southern tip of Siesta Key
because contractors were tied
up with other work.
The project timetable is


constrained by the annual sea
turtle nesting season, which
extends from May 1 until
Oct. 31. Shoreline alterations
along the long stretch of beach
must be finished before fe-
male turtles arrive to create
nests and lay their eggs.
Drawing the line
On Jan. 25, the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection has scheduled a
public hearing in Sarasota to
set the Erosion Control Line at'
the mean high water line
along the south end of Siesta,
before the sand replacement
project can begin..
The process is regulatory
in nature and protects the
state's shoreline interests by.
providing that additional
property does not accrue to
beachfront property owners
in the project area after 200,
additional feet of frontage is
added with sand brought
ashore on barges.
'Anything seaward of the
mean high water line before-
this project begins is public
domain," Wreford explained.
"If everything was in place,


and we had the permits, we
might have pushed to have
that hearing moved up a cou-
ple of weeks. Iow it won't be
necessary."
Another unfinished piece
of project business is con-
struction easements, which
the county must have in
place with beachfront prop-
erty owners before construc-
tion crews can commence
work. There is no anticipa-
tion of problems on that front.
The nine-rmonth project
delay announced last week
is a disappointment for the
county commission, which
on Oct. 11 authorized the
expenditure of an additional
$100,000 to have its consul-
tant prepare environmental
assessment documents for
two federal agencies.
Hurricane Katrina issues
have tied up both the Army
Corps of Engineers and the
Fish and Wildlife Serxice.
which would normally do the
work. The agencies recom-
mended the county help foot
the bill to expedite the per-
mitting process.
$2 million jump
Sarasota County is paying
Coastal Planning and Engine-
ering $145,000 to prepare
two documents. It will re-
ceive a 30 percent (about
$45,000) reimbursement from


the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
through a cost-sharing agree-
ment.
In September, county
natural resources officials re-
ported the construction price
tag for spreading about


800,000 cubic yards of sand
over a 2-mile stretch of shore-
line had jumped from $5.8
million to $7.8 million be-
cause of additional erosion
and other cost factors.
The commission's deci-
sion to approve another


$145,000 for preparing the
two documents brought the
county's contract with the
firm to $991,000. When
combined with $7.8 million
for construction it bumped
the estimated project price
tag to $8.75 million.

Village beautification should begin in spring of'07


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Only one major hurdle
remains for the Siesta Key
Village business.,leaders who
have diligently pursued a $5.2
million beautification plan
with Sarasota County: a ref-
erendum in support of the
project for property owners
who would have to pay a $2
million share of the bill.
On Dec. 14, the county
commission agreed to pay
the $3.2 million balance -
60 percent of the overall price
tag for aesthetic improve-
ments that include an agree-
ment with the Florida Power
and Light Company to bury
its overhead utility lines be-
neath Ocean Boulevard.
"This is an investment op-
portunity for the county that
stands on its own merits,",


commissioner David Mills,
said. "The overall return in
tourist. devel-
opment taxes
and property
taxes will be
$6 or $7 for
every $1 ihe
county puts
into this. I
believe it's
time to move Mills
ahead."
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson, a Siesta Key resident,
agreed and said all the parties
involved in the project have to
be careful wherin putting to-
gether a construction cal-
endar so as not to destroy
businesses.,
"We don't want to bank-
rupt folks," she warned. "prior
to finishing this beautifica-
tion."
While some of the proj-


ect's proponents want to see
heavy equipment in the vil-
lage next year, county officials
cautioned that the design is
only 30 percent completed
and work probably couldn't
begin until winter tourists
depart in the spring of 2007.
The path to a referendum
either next spring or summer
will begin with a petition
signed by 15 property owners
who support a special taxing
.mechanism known as a
"public improvement dis-
trict." It would be followed by
a public hearing before the
county commission.
If all goes smoothly, the
commission will direct coun-
ty lawyers to draft language
for a mail-in referendum that
must be approved by more
than half the Siesta Key Vil-
lage property owners. Then
the supervisor of elections


would have to advertise a
date for the referendum.
A half dozen local individ-
uals own about 50 percent of
the properties in Siesta Key
Village, while the rest of the
owners are scattered around
the country and overseas. They
now hold the keys to success
for a project that has been in
the works for several years.
The $5.2 million price tag
for village improvements in-
cludes $4 million for beautifi-
cation projects and $1.2 mil-
lion to bury the 'FP&L lines.
An engineering consultant,
Wilson-Miller, has produced
a "30 percent completed"
design for the pedestrian-
friendly project.
It' includes brick entry fea-
tures both north and south
of the village; brick sidewalks;
decorative street lighting;
intersection medallions; a 20-


mile-per-hour speed limit;
decorative traffic signs; bus
shelters without advertising;
consolidated news racks;
landscaping; and benches.
The county commission
was presented with funding
options that would require a

f inanc in g
commit -
ment of
either: a) $1.5
million; b)
$2.6 million;
or c) $3.2 mil-
lion. County
Administra-
Patterson tor Jim Ley,
recommend-
ed a 50 percent contribution
of $2.6 million.
"You should consider not
making this a 60-40 split (with
a $3.2 million allocation)," he
advised. "We will be consider-


ing other community rein-
vestment projects, such as
one coming up for the Pine-
craft community."
But the commission de-
cided otherwise.,
"I'd like to see us move
toward Option C (a $3.2 mil-
lion allocation)," Patterson
said. "There are not very
many property owners who
would have to ante up in the
proposed district. A sales job
will still be necessary to get
their signatures (on petitions
and referendum ballots)."
Jane Grogg, a. county
neighborhood services plan-
ner, said the commission's
decision would allow Wilson-
Miller'to complete its project
design while the Siesta Key
Village leaders gather petition
signatures and initiate the
critical mail-in referendum
process.


Open ditch is an eyesore for beach walkers


A county drainage ditch across Siesta Public
Beach empties into theGulf of Mexico.
It will cost about $1 million to pipe the water
across Beach Road and into the Grand Canal.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Conspicuous : is not a
strong enough word for the
drainage ditch, that cuts
across a wide stretch of fine
white sand at the south end of
Siesta Public Beach before it
empties into the Gulf of
Mexico. It's aneyesore in what
is otherwise a small slice of
heaven.
'As long as I can remember
it's been there," said Kirk
Bagley, the county's drainage:
operations manager. "It used"


to drain runoff that came
directly from roadside ditch:-
es. but nowit connects with a
pond fed by a pump station
back in the mangroves."
The ditch can be a relative-
ly benign impediment for
beach walkers when drainage
water runs clean. But when it
turns, green with algae from
the concealed pond just
south of the maintenance
building and tennis courts,
the beachfront landscape
.turns ugly.


There is a slowly unfolding
county project in the works
that will eventually remove'
the blight, but it will probably
take a couple of years to work
through study, design and
engineering phases before
about $1 million is allocated
for the big fix.
Not so fast
When public health offi-
cials briefly posted Siesta
Public Beach as unsafe for
swimming in April 2004, the
pond was identified as a bac-
teria source and consultants
were hired to find out why.
The problem was traced to a
buildup of caked material in
drainage pipes. .
There is no simple answer


to the 'problem because
stormwater from heavilytrav-,
eled Beach Road and several
side streets is piped through a
filtration system and pumped
into the pond. It becomes a
hot-button issue when rain
causes the pond to overflow
and drain into the gulf.
What county officials
eventually want to do is
devise a plan that will clean
up the water so it can be
drained into the Grand Canal
rather than the gulf, but they
have to satisfy the residents
of nearby. Siesta Isles where
the redirected outfall pipe
will go.
"The first step is storm
sewer maintenance," said
Peter Peduzzi, a county engi-


neer and project supenisor.
"Step two will be storm sewer
disinfection. Only then would
we pump the water back to
Grand Canal through pipes
that provide ultraviolet light
to keep it clean."
County parks and recre-
ation officials have started to
host public input sessions
with Siesta Key residents as a
prelude to developing a mas-
ter plan for die public beach
area. A resolution of the trou-
blesome pond and drainage
ditch could become part of'
the plan.
"We are well aware of the
problem," Bagley said. "When
water gets warm in the ditch,
kids want to play in it. There
could be bacteria in the water


from birds and raccoons that
live in the Australian pines.
It's the county's only direct
discharge into the gulf at a
swimming beach."
One way or another, the
cost of doing away with the
public eyesore will eventually
be addressed by the county
commission at a budget
workshop. Whether it will be
another year or two, or
three depends on how fast
drainage experts come up
with an acceptable solution.

GOING TO GREAT PAINS AT WORK
According to the results of an Internet survey of more than 1,000 employees of a major business services company,

percent of the employees surveyed reported ongoing problems with pain. Those with pain scored more than 45
percent lower on an overall rating of physical health than workers with no pain. Pain was associated with
reduction in nearly every apsect of productivity measured in the survey. The impact of pain on health and
productivity was especially high among employees with musculoskeletal conditions, such as arthritis and neck and
back pain. Many employees indicated that they were dissatisfied with their current pain treatment.

Developer gets county waiver to pursue rezoning


Benderson Development Group
wants to build a mixed-use project
at U.S. 41 and Stickney Point Road.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A large developer who
plans to build stores, offices
and apartments at the busy
northwest comer of U.S. 41
and Stickney Point Road has
been granted a Sarasota
County procedural : waiver
that could save thousands of
dollars and advance the pro-
ject by more than a year.
On Dec. 6, the county
commission reversed a Nov.
8 decision that would have
required Benderson Develop-
ment Group to pursue a time-
consuming comprehensive
plan amendment that could
have delayed construction by
up to 18 months.
The about-face does not
guarantee Beriderson addi-
tional density beyond what
the current zoning allows,
but the company can now
petition for a rezoning to
commercial general with a
special exception for mixed-
use development that in-
cludes stores, offices and
apartments.
An apparently forgotten
resolution adopted by the
county commission in 2000
was dusted off by Sarasota
attorney William Merrill and
produced as evidence that a
required Critical Area Plan
was not necessary because
the development would not
encourage urban sprawl.
The resolution, signed by
former commission chair-
man Ray Pilon, granted a CAP
,waiver for the project, an
established planning process
policyy loophole the county
attorney's office has recently
had second thoughts about
Reliance
In a Dec. 2 lener to the
commissioners, Merrill made
reference to the policy.
SAs you may know," he
stated, "the assistant county
attorney (Gary Oldehoff) has
opined that these long-
standing rules, policies and
practices may be improper,
and that the rezoning of the
property may not be proces-
sed pursuant to the waiver."
But Merrill argued later in
the letter, "Our clients have
spent millions of dollars in
reliance on the CAP (Critical
Area Plan) Waiver and long-
standing county rules and
policy interpretations of the
comprehensive plan, zoning
regulations and CAP process."
A brief exchange about
recent legal opinions report-
edly expressed by the county
attorney's office before the
county planning commission
prompted a request for infor-
mation that could be the sub-
ject of a future discussion
before the county commis-
sion.
But on the afternoon of
Dec. 6, the county commis-
sion unanimously agreed to
grant Benderson the time-


saving waiver and change a
Future Land Use Map in the
county's comprehensive plan


to describe a Community
Activity Center at the busy
intersection.
The former South Key
Shell service station has
already been removed from
the 25-acre project site. All
that remains is the 300-unit


Pine Shores Trailer Park,
where residents have been
given notice to evacuate by
Aug. 30 and only about 130
still remain.,
On July 18, 2003, the clock
began to tick on the old trail-
er park's demise when an-


other developer Christ-
opher C. Cogan signed a
letter of intent to pay $16.5
million for the property. Ben-
derson later came into the
deal and acquired the entire
northwest quadrant.
The Pelican Press -has re-


ported that Benderson wants
to develop up to 500 condo-
minium apartments and
200,000 square feet of retail
stores at the already busy
intersection. It currently
owns and operates more than
250 properties in 35 states.

SANTA fromPagelA


playing Smelly Santa years
ago at pet shop in Sarasota for
$6 an hour.
"The owner had this idea:
Get your picture taken with
Santa and any pet. But I said,
no snakes and no rodents. So
we had a bunch of puppies.
"Well, it didn't take long
before I felt dog pee running
down Santa's leg. These cute
little puppies were being
squeezed by all the children,
which made them pee. All the
while I'm saying 'Ho! Ho! Ho!'
this warm liquid is running
down my suit. It was terrible.
It took at least two dry clean-
ings to get the pee out of my
Santa suit."
The day before Christmas
this year Giorgianni did his
annual gig at the home of
Dave and Bonnie Peterson in
Mission Valley. He's been
playing Santa for years at the
Petersons', entertaining their
children, and now their
grandchildren.
"I meet the family outside
and carry in a bag of gifts that
gives me a hernia," he said.
He recalls one of Dave's


younger sons received a
Miami Dolphins helmet,
shoulder pads and jersey for
Christmas.
"I was giving gifts to the
kids and I hear his son say,
'Santa!' I looked up and here
is ,this 10-year-old coming at
me like Jack Lambert and the
Steel Curtain. He must have
been going 7,000 miles per
hour right into my crotch.
My eyes wandered for a week.
We still laugh about that."
Knickers
Giorgianni's most memo-
rable tale is of "naked Santa."
"Now, Dave makes the
greatest margarita in the
world. Well, Santa can't drink
margaritas, buit Dave was. I
picked this child up and.
placed him on my lap and
unbeknownst to me a draw-
string happened to catch.
After 30 minutes of this, I
stood up and my pants fell
clear down to the floor. It's as
clear as can be on Dave's
videotape naked Santa. He
laughed so hard he slid down
the wall like a drunken sailor."
A general contractor who
retired seven years ago,

Santa Giorgianni drops by a
local Venice business.
Giorgianni does about six gigs
each year, including regular
visits to his United Methodist
Preschool He also does Christ-
mas in July for the preschool in
Laurel Nokomis. Throughout
all th6se years playing Santa, he
says, kids still aren't sure if he is
really Santa.
"They reach up and grab
my beard and say, 'You aren't
real.' So, I have to come out
with 'Ho! Ho! Ho' when under
my breath I'm saying, OK, lit-
tle boy, touch.my beard one
more time and I'll break your
fingers."
"I get right down and dirty
with them," he says. "I love


I uduhmsmr-l


talking to them and finding
out if they were naughty or
nice. They've made me the
greatest liar in the world, but I
love those kids."
Family Nick
Ron Gillis began his Santa
stint five years ago.
He started out in North
Port by making a reindeer
sled and dressing it up with
gift boxes. .He and his wife
would sit in the sled and wave
to passersby. They put out
punch and lollipops for the
neighborhood kids.
Then he decided to make
the jump to full-fledged St.
Nick. He's done.a dozen gigs
this year, mostly at Venice
restaurants, and mostly all
freebies. His last gig was Fri-
daywhen the Laurel Nokomis
Fire Department carried him
across the street to a private
part-' at Anita's Restaurant.
"I like to do family restau-
rants and jump from table to
table. I like the interaction
between Santa and kids and
adults.
"I do a trivia quiz. What are
Santa's other names? Are the
reindeer all male or female?


Which reindeer has wings?
What do you feed Santa, or
the reindeer (oatmeal, be-
cause other rodents won't
touch it)? How do the elves
rotate from year to year? (I tell
them, when a new star
appears, that's a new elf.)
"Things have changed so
much in the way Santa inter-
acts with kids. I used to have
people, including adults, sit
on my lap. You have to be
careful these days.
"I don't do residences.
Now, I always have a chair
next to me. A lot of times I
have them sit beside me. I
take most children, but I
won't take a teenager. You
have to play it by ear. And you
can't say 'be good to your par-
ents' because the child may
come from a single-family,
home."
Naughty and naughtier
The toughest audience, says
Gillis, are children ages 10-12.
"They're very inquisitive,
and not quite sure they be-
lieve in Santa anymore. They
ask questions like, 'How can
you be in so many places at
the same time?'


TIDE from Page6A


and physical reasons.
"Mote is. trying to get mil-
lions in grants to address red
tide, and here is this gentle-
man who spent $4,000 to
come up with a solution. It's
rather indicative of the struc-
ture we live in ... that it has to
be done out of a garage and
not as a result of millions in
government grants. That's
how personal computers
developed. ;.
"Wednesday's demonstra-
tion showed the efficacy of
Mr. Rigby's formula on eradi-
cating a bloom.I am adamant
about seeing this gentleman
gets some money to move
forward. It's a question of sit-,
ting down and funding the
program. Maybe we can get
something done out of the


private sector," Leydon said.
Government role
What's the next step for the
Sarasota Board of County
Commissioners?
"I am trying to figure that
out myself," said Thaxron. "I
would love for somebody to
come to me with suggestions.
There is not a clear answer to
that yet."
"I'm not an expert in prod-
uct development, and clearly
that's what Mr. Rigby wants. I
know he is only trying to pro-
tect his proprietary rights, but
that's not the county's gig. To
be realistic about it, it's a rig-
orous process additional
testing is needed from inde-
pendent groups to confirm
the original thesis, and then


go through state agencies to
permit testing in the gulf.
Thaxton said unanswered
research questions con-
tribute to the confusion and
lack of direction in seeking a
solution.
"Right ~ow they have no
proof that red tide today -
meaning the intensiveness,
duration and frequency of
outbreaks is being affected
by human activity. The as-
sumption is that's the case. If
that's so, my first inclination is
to work toward removing
nutrients that generally are
known to contribute to algae
blooms. It's a no-miss strate-,
gy."
"But we do not want to elim-
inate red ride. It's a natural phe-
nomena. The organism has a


critical place in the marine
ecosystem. You can't just take it
out. Every time we do, the con-
sequences are more damaging
than the cure.
"What is the natural role of
Karenia brevis and how do we
keep it natural? If we are caus-
ing (blooms), is it legitimate
to bring it back to its original
state?"
Thaxton said the demon-
stration answered a couple of
his concerns.
"The demonstration was
convincing. It did test the
level of solution that is opti-
mal for killing the organism.
And it tested against other
vulnerable organisms. Its
affect on other algae, howev-
er, wasn't answered. Does it
only affect dinoflagella, or


only red and brown algae, or
all algae? Where does it stop?
How specific is it at eradicat-
ing organisms? Powell said it
is. not species specific, so
could it kill other algae.
"Some by-kill is accept-
able. You can afford to kill
some other species in a very
small area, but not on a larger
scale. That's why I am confi-
dent of spending money on
current research efforts by
Mote to predict and isolate
blooms.
"The first thing we need to
do is early detection. (Red
tide) only seems to start in
exacting water conditions, all
the more reason why we need
to predict where it's going to
first break.
Only then would applica-


tion of a cure like Rigby's
become viable, he said.
Red tides are harmful algal
blooms that occur when
toxic, microscopic algae in
seawater proliferate to high-
er-than-normal concentra-
tions (bloom), often discolor-
ing the water red, brown,
green or yellow, according to
the Fish andWildlife Research
Institute.
More than 40 species of
toxic microalgae live in the
Gulf of Mexico. The most
common is the dinoflagellate
Kareniabrevis, the Florida red
tide organism.

"After a while she came

OUR VIEW



Love is what Christmas is all about


ou can drape your house and trees with
sparkling lights, candy canes and an
effigy of a fat, bearded man dressed in
red and white, sitting in a sleigh behind eight
tiny plastic reindeer, but if you fail to phone
, family members on Christmas day, to tell
them you love them, you don't understand
what today is all about.
If you feel jealous or cranky because peo-
ple stop to admire and praise your neighbor's
decorations, yet you fail to "love your neigh-
,bor as yourself," you don't understand the
real reason we celebrate this day.
You may have shopped until you nearly
dropped in the best brand-name stores in
Southwest Florida for the perfect gifts, but if
you fail to grasp the fact that real love is not
expressed by giving people material things,
you may not fully understand the real signif-
icance of Dec. 25.


You can spend hours laboring in the mess or interrupting you or slowing you

"It does not rejoice over the wrong, but

That's a message everyone can embrace.

BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

his year more: than-any,
political correctness has
grabbed Christmas to see if it
should be something else we
change the meaning of and
degrade.
I guess maybe the headlin-
er in the act was our born-
again Christian President
George W. Bush and wife
Laura, who decided to not
mention Christmas in their
holiday cards featuring their
terrier dogs on the front.
President Bush caught a lot of
flak. At least he did light the
Christmas tree..
But he was not alone. Wal-
Mart decided to use the term
."holiday" and in some stores
did not play Christmas music.
Target got its share last year by
not allowing the Salvation,
Army to ring bells in front of
its stores.
Not playing Christmas'
music reminds me of when I
used to announce soccer
games at Venice High. One
year I played Christmas tunes
at the half. I got in trouble
with Principal Dan Parrett, as
a parent from the opposing
team had complained. I only
wish someone would have:
told her where to go. I think I
played "Frosty the Snowman"
just to spite them the next
week.
In Plano, Texas, a boy was
told he could not pass out
candy canes in school. At
Auburn University they no
longer have a Christmas tree,
but have replaced it with a
"holiday tree." We will likely
ban Santa, or have to call him
something like the festive,
jolly old man, since we all
know that Santa is code for
Satan.
This is not a new problem,
just one that's heightened
over time. It must have been
15 years ago that the wonder-
ful Christmas pageant on the
grounds of city hall, support-
ed each year by many church-
es, had to leave because of
threatened lawsuits by a local
attorney.
I hope the schools don't
succumb to doing away with
Christmas as they have
Halloween they now have
"fall festival" time. Let's hope
they don't go to winter festi-
val, because that is when we
will all know that the system is
failing.


There is no Christmas
without Christ, sort of like
having chocolate chip cook-
ies without chocolate.
Let's recognize all celebra-
tions of faith and stand up for
the right to express those cel-
ebrations.

By's Crack: As if Christmas
weren't bleak enough, the
eight maids a milking got in
trouble with immigration.

'.Received a lot, of coin-
ments on my' cold column..
First, let me tell you the latest
on the cold.
I had two great days and
felt the cold was gone, until
Tuesday night, when it reap-
peared. It was worse
Wednesday than it has been
in the five weeks I've had it.
One person told me that
Ester C was the thing that had
kept him from getting colds.
Another person said having a
flu shot or pneumonia shot
keeps them away, while one
person said a straight shot of
bourbon with a little red pep-
per on top might not cure the
cold but at least make you for-
get about it.
Actually I tried a variation
of this --bourbon, honey and
warm water and it really
seemed to help. I was told to
add lemon, so am trying that
next.
A vaporizer should have
been on my list of remedies,
as I can remember mom used
one all the time.
Jeannie called and told me
that I needed to have hot
lemonade. Part of the secret is
breathing in the vapors.
Chicken soup has a similar
affect, she said. She also rec-
ommended Zicam, which is
an oral mist.
One person said there is a
new medicine out doctors are
giving to kids, a single pill that
is working. Doesn't that
sound like magic.

Why not give peace a chance?


Editor:
During the Christmas season, as we send cards wishing for
peace on earth, we can help promote it.
We need a Department of Peace. While governments pursue
their aims through violence and warfare, and military force is
seen as a legitimate way to resolve disputes, is it any wonder
that our conununities suffer from violence? Can we expect
youth to learn peaceful ways to resolve conflicts?
Bills are before Congress (HR 3760 and S 1756) that would
establish a Cabinet-level Department of Peace. Sixty members
of the House have co-sponsored it. Department of Peace
activist. groups exist in 49 states and more than 280
Congressional districts.
A Department of Peace will facilitate nonviolent solutions to
both international and domestic conflicts, promoting justice,
and democratic principles. It would include programs to pre-
vent child and spousal abuse, racial violence and mistreatment,
of the elderly. It would emphasize early intervention, dialogue
and de-escalation. What better way to improve our security?
Imagine school children learning peer mediation and con-
flict resolution; peace-making initiatives among conflicting
cultures; a multinational "Peace Force" of civilian peacekeep-
ers mediating international disputes.
To join the local effort, come to the celebration of the World
Day of Peace at Epiphany Cathedral, 350 Tampa Ave., Venice,
Saturday, Dec. 31, 10 a.m.-3:15 p.m. The Department of Peace
presentation is scheduled for the afternoon section of the cel-
ebration.

Put a moratorium'
on park buyouts

Editor:
I strongly urge that there
be a moratorium on the
takeovers of mobile home
parks until we can configure
ways to humanely resolve a
serious issue that threatens
the quality of life for so many.
Without prompt action
and leadership in this loom-
ing human dilemma, what
will happen to these people?
People who are on fixed
incomes and are not in a
position to purchase condos
that are in the, $200,000-
$500,000 range are left vul-
nerable to the inflated market
forces driving the real estate


industry's plans for growth.
Without a structured,,
compassionate approach to
protect the consumer and
resolve this human problem,
Sarasota County will become
a giant gated community set
aside exclusively for the
wealthy. We will become
communities that put profit
before humanity. Our parents
and grandparents deserve
better.
It may be that the owners
of mobile homes can form
non-profit corporations
where they hold the land in
common and continue to pay
traditional county tax assess-
ments. There are precedents
for this.
In 2005, our county com-
mission held a series of com-


munity conversations
throughout Sarasota County.
Second only to protecting the
environment, these citizens
ranked affordable housing as
a legacy they insist onprovid-,
ing.
Let's hot leave the solu-
tions to Mother Nature in the
next series 'of hurricanes,
which let developers exploit
the tragedy of destroyed
homes and lives.
It's time for the people of
this state to out-lobby the
entrenched lobbyists and call
for some real legislation out
of Tallahassee that will serve
the people instead of power
brokers.

Let's go Dutch
before rebuilding

Editor:
I find it outrageous that we
are thinking about rebuilding
New Orleans without first
constructing a levee that will
withstand a Category 5 storm.
We cannot rely on the state
or city or even the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
How about hiring a few
Dutch engineers from
Holland? They have kept
water out of their homeland
for centuries.


Mother Nature
crying for help
Editor:
When is the last t
really looked around
maybe I should ask I
have you lived here?
Mother Earth is cr


needs our help. We are strip-
ping her of her trees and
beauty. We are throwing trash
on her and we don't always do
the recycle thing.
We are sending the ani-
mals scrambling for new
homes and stealing their
food by destroying their
homes.
We are more concerned
with how our home is going
to fit on that lot rather than
how can we save the trees.
If you lived in this area
years ago, you can relate to
what I am trying to say. I know
things change and areas grow,
but how come we cannot
grow with love for Mother
Nature?

Editor:
In spite of ever-growing
numbers of people realizing

President Cheney for all the
wrong reasons, the support-
ers of this administration

BY LAURA FEHL
STAFF WRITER


The writer of a recent letter to
the editor dismissed Santa
Claus as an insult to the true
meaning of Christmas.
Several readers responded
negativelyto this letter, implying
that its writer is a bitter, unhap-
pysourpuss.
The writer claimed that
because the letters in the word
"Santa" can be flipped around
to form the word "Satan," there
is a correlation between the
mythical figure Santa Claus and
the biblical figure Satan.
I recently completed a lin-
guistics course in which one of
the first topics we discussed Was
commonly held misconcep-
tions regarding the nature of
language and meaning.
For, example, "The Flip-Flop,
or the Universal Reversal
Fallacy," is the misconception
that by reversing the letters in a
word, anewwordis formed that
somehow reveals something
about the nature of the first
word.
Further study in this course
revealed that there is no con-
nection at all between the
sound, spelling, appearance,
etc., of a given word and its
meaning.
Words are symbols and their
meanings are arbitrarily
assigned by the culture in which
the given language is being
used.
People, places and things
also operate as symbols within
our culture. One such symbol is
Santa Claus; another is Jesus

LET'EM HAVE IT
In the spirit of Christmas,
there will be no Let'em
Have It today. The feature-
will return in Wednesday's
edition.


Christ
The writer of the letter stated
that promoting the myth of
Santa was an affront to God
because it takes the focus of
Christmas away from Jesus.
In the. Merriam-Webster
Dictionary, the word "myth" is
defined as, 'A popular belief or
tradition that has grown up
around something or some-
one."
Although the word myth has
developed a negative connota-
tion in our language, based on
its denotative meaning, there
are myths surrounding both
Santa Claus and Jesus Christ.
To my understanding, as a
historical figure, Jesus Christ
was executed due to the
Romans' fears that he might
lead a revolt that would threaten
political control of the region.
But to Christ's followers, his
life represented a universal
message of love, forgiveness
and goodwill toward others; his
crucifixion represented ulti-
mate sacrifice so that we could
be freed of our earthly sins.
As a symbol, Christ has come
to represent- true selflessness
and a spirit of giving and kind-
ness.
Would it be incorrect to .say
that, as a symbol, Santa also rep-
resents true selflessness and a
spirit of giving and kindness?
According to myth, Santa
travels the world in one night,
giving presents to all children,
regardless ofethnicity, culture or
religion. Santa asks and expects
nothing in return.
I think most parents would
agree that it is important to

the early years of the Viemam
War, I believed I was helping an
Asian country from communist
domination, the evil of that
time. When I came home hon-
orably discharged, the truth
about that war came out in the
open: President Johnson exag-
gerated the Gulf of Tonkin
"attack" on an American ship as
an excuse to escalate the
.Viem a .. ,ac,,., ..... .V' .;. .
This is what is ekil and crimi-
nal. Two wrongs don't make a


teach our children that selfless-
ness and a spirit of giving are
qualities to which we should all
aspire.
These are the qualities pos-
sessed by Jesus Christ, whose
birth we celebrate each year on
Christmas day.
However, Santa Claus may
be a more appropriate symbol
for younger children who are
not yet mature enough to.
appreciate the complexities of
Christ's story.
Of course it is true that mate-
rialismhas come to pervade our
society and corrupt the mean-
ing of Christmas.
But Ibelieve Santa is no more
to blame for this than God is to
blame for the acts of hate that,
are supposedly committed in
his name each day.
By focusing on symbols
rather .than the meaning they
represent, we run the risk of iso-
lating groups of people who
may not be able, religiously or
culturally, to relate to thatpartic-
ular symbol.
Regardless of which symbol
we choose to represent the spir-
it of the season, this is the time
of year to forget ourselves-our
material desire, our self-right-
eousness, our social status -
and focus on giving to others,
hiiich is a gift unto itself.
By turning the focus toward
meaning rather than symbol,
we invite people of all cultures
and religions to participate in
the joys that Christmas has to
offer.
I can't help but think that
Jesus might have liked it that
way.

right, and no matter how one
tries to sugar coat a lie, it's still a
lie. Soldiers only know how to
obey their orders and carry
them out. They find out the
truth later on. Too bad so many
die before the truth comes out.
So to all detractors of anti-
Bush patriots, I say open your
minds to the truth, because Fox
News isn't the place to see and
hear it. .

Be aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide p


STAFF REPORT


In the past decade, people
have become more aware of
the risk of carbon monoxide
poisoning in the home. Often
called the silent killer, carbon
monoxide is an invisible
odorless, colorless gas creat-
ed when fuels (such as gaso-
line, wood, coal, natural gas,
propane, oil and methane)
bum incompletely.
In the home, heating and
cooking equipment that bum
fuel are potential sources of
carbon monoxide. Vehicles or
generators running in an
attached garage can also pro-
duce dangerous levels of car-
bon monoxide.
According to the National-
Safety Council, 400 gas poi-
soning deaths occurred in
2000, 300 of them in homes.
Since 2003, there has been an


increase in carbon monoxide
poisoning and deaths result-
ing from improper use of gen-
erators.
The risk of unintentional
carbon monoxide death. is.
highest for the very old (ages
75 or above).
Sarasota County Fire Chief
Brian Gorski offers these safe-
ty tips to prevent carbon
monoxide poisoning:
Install carbon monoxide
alarms (listed by an indepen-
dent testing laboratory) in
your home to provide an early
warning of accumulating car-
bon monoxide.
Install carbon monoxide
alarms in a central location"
outside each separate sleep-
ing area.
After purchasing an
alarm, post 9-1-1byyourtele-
phone and make sure every-
one in the household knows


to call this number regardless
if it is a fire or carbon monox-
ide emergency.
Test the alarms at least
once a month, and replace
alarms according to the man-
ufacturer's instructions.
If you need to warm a
vehicle engine, remove the
vehicle from the garage
immediately after starting it.
Do not run a vehicle, genera-
tor or other fueled engine or
motor indoors, even if garage
doors are open. Never leave
your vehicle running when it
is parked.
Have fuel-burning
household heating equip-
ment (fireplaces, furnaces,
water heaters, wood and coal
stoves, space or portable
heaters), and chimneys
inspected by a professional
every year before the start of
cold weather.


When using a fireplace,
open the flue for adequate
ventilation.
Open a window slightly
whenever using a kerosene or
gas heater. (Since kerosene
heaters are illegal in many
states, check with local
authorities before buying or
using one). Only refuel out-
side, after the device has
cooled.
.* Never use your oven to
heat your home.
Only use barbecue grills
- which can produce carbon
monoxide outside. Never
use them in the home or.
garage.
When purchasing new
heating and cooking equip-
ment, select a' product tested
and labeled by an indepen-
dent testing laboratory.
'When purchasing an
existing home, have a quali-


fled technician evaluate the
heating and cooking systems
and the sealed spaces
between the garage and
house.
When camping, use bat-
tery-powered heaters and
flashlights in tents, trailers
and motor homes.
Carbon monoxide alarms
are not substitutes for smoke
alarms. Smoke alarms should
be installed on every level of
the home and in or outside all
sleeping areas.
Know the difference
between the' sound of the
smoke alarms and the carbon
monoxide alarms.
If the carbon monoxide
alarms sounds:
If it is a battery-powered,
intermittent alarm, check the
battery,
If it is a steady alarm or
the cause cannot be deter-

Operation Slow Speed blankets state


FLORIDA FISH AND
WILDLIFE COMMISSION


Five thousand boaters got
checked over a weekend
early this month as the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) rolled out its first coor-
dinated statewide manatee
law enforcement effort along
with a team of more than 45
local, county, state and feder-
al agencies in 19 counties.,
Operation Slow Speed
focused on education due to
hurricane-impacted speed
zone signs. Despite cooler
weather and fewer than ex-
pected boaters on the water,
the statewide team effort
yielded:
Manatee Warnings-176
Manatee Citations-128
Boating Safety Warnings-
319
Boating Safety Citations-


Fishery Violation Warn-
ings-23
Fishery Violatio'n Cita-
tions-22
In addition, this team per-
formed four search-and-res-
cue missions, as well as
responded to 30 calls for ser-
vice. Officers made one ar-
rest for boating-under-the-
influence and two for Home-
land Security violations in
Palm Beach County.
"During this time of the
year we see an influx of sea-
sonal residents on our water-
ways," said officer Scott
Prasse, the operation's orga-
nizer. "That coupled with sea-
sonal changes in manatee
speed zones and migration
patterns makes it crucial for
us to educate boaters. We
want to save lives and mana-
tees."
Through November, 358


manatees have died this year
statewide, 70 by watercraft.
Through Dec. 4, 73 boaters
have. died on Florida's water-
ways. In 2003, Florida led
the nation in boating deaths
with 64, and last year, had 68.
Most of them were pre-
ventable.
This is the third year for
Operation Slow Speed in
Palm Beach County but the
first time it was a statewide
project.
Boaters are required to
know the rules for the waters
where they boat. Replacing
signs destroyed by past hurri-
canes may take months, but
the speed zones that those
signs mark will still be in
effect. Complete copies of
individual county waterway
rules are available at
MyFWC.com/manatee/
rules or by contacting the
FWC at (850) 922-4330.

End-of-year resolution: To walk again,

Rea tape has delayea me delivery of a prosmeuc
leg but hasn't weakened Roberta Brown's
determination.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR

Roberta Brown never.
thought the only thing she
would want for Christmas
was to walk. However, that's
all she asked for and isn't get-,
ting-yet.
The 41-year-old North
Porter, who survived an Aug. 5
motorcycle crash that cost
her a leg, is largely recovered
from broken vertebrae, a skull
fracture, a torn tendon in her
elbow, a crushed arm and
numerous other injuries, inu-
cluding temporary blindness.
Roberta was on the back of
her husband Bob's motorcy-
cle on a cross-country vaca-
don when he suffered a brain
aneurysm and died. They
crashed through two signs
and a barbed-wire fence.
She was taken to Okla-
homa City University Medical
Center where she remained
until the end of August.
Since then, she has been
wheelchair-bound and deter-
mined to walk again before
the end of the year.
While working with two
Sarasota prosthesis doctors,
Brown was told she needed a
letter including clinical notes


about her amputated leg.,
Although she has already
been approved by Medicaid,
she has been unable to get the
letter from Gulf Coast Ortho-
pedist to give to Sun Coast
Orthotics so the doctor can
order the parts for her leg.
"I was approved by Med-
icaid in November," she said.
"I've tried three times to get
the letter faxed from one doc-
tor's office to another. With-
out the clinical note, the doc-
tor cannot order the parts to
create my prosthesis. I've
already been to the doctor for
two fittings. I was supposed to
have my leg in time for
Christmas."
Instead, Brown changed
her goal to walk on her own to
January.
"I just want to walk, walk,
walk," said Brown, who has
already been contacted by the
physical therapy employees
at Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital, who thought they
would be teaching her to walk
again by now.
"There are little things you
cannot do in a wheel chair. I
have to ask the kids (Anthony,
8, Jessica, 14, and Krystal and
Elizabeth, both 22) to help me
reach things."


SUN PHOTO B KHARLI ROSE
Roberta Brown and her daughter, Jessica, 14, reminisce about
their family Christmas ornaments. Roberta, an amputee since
an August motorcycle accident, hopes to be walking again
soon.


'Mom is back'
With a smile, Jessica look-
ed over at her mother and
said she sometimes overdoes
it and pushes herself too hard.
"It's hard," she said. "It can
be very stressful."
Brown said she has never
been checked on or X-rayed

by any doctors after having
her neck fused in August. It
took two months for her to
get an appointment with a
Sarasota neurologist, so she
was extremely disappointed
this week when the office
called and canceled. Her new
appointment is on Feb. 18.
Despite the physical pain
her mom endures, Jessica

said sne was eeling better
after Roberta's cast was taken
off and the neck brace was
removed in October.
"The kids knew I felt better
when I started yelling again,"
Roberta joked. "I said 'Morn is
back.' I lift my arm weights and
do my leg exercises everyday."
After months of recovery,
Brown felt confident enough
to get behind the wheel again
in November. She now works
part-time in North Port to
help keep up with the bills.
"I needed to get out,"
Brown said. "Driving is one of
those freedoms that you take
for granted."
Brown, who was a bar-
tender at Will's Honky Tonk in
Englewood before the crash,
said she also hopes to go back
to work there by the spring.
"I just can't wait to get back
behind the bar again and see
all of my friends," she said.
More surgery
First, Brown will have to
undergo surgery for her left
arm. Doctors will fuse her
arnn and add plates that they
hope will make it heal better.

"Jessica calls me the claw:

While Brown didn't solicit
help to purchase her children,
Christmas gifts, employees of
Fifth Third Bank bought pre!
sents for Anthony : and the:
North Port Contractor's Asso--
ciation gave a gift certificate
to Jessica.
To surprise Roberta wheri
she arrived home froni work'
one day recently, her children
put up a Christmas tree in the
living room and hung stock-
ings on the mantel.
On Thursday, Roberta and
Jessica placed Roberta's spe-
cial Harley-Davidson Christ-:
mas ornament on the tree.
"I plan to spend Christmas
with my kids," Brown said. "For
New Year's, we are going to have
a bonfire. Because I will have
had my surgery the day before
and can't go anywhere, my
friends and families are coming
here. It's going to be fun."

Terry Stewart likes the
"finer" things.
In her case, "fine" refers to
size as in "small."
Terry and her husband,
Bob, have been creating a
smaller world for quite some
time now. Bob creates the
rooms and furniture. Terry
paints and creates miniature
art. Together they create
rooms that hold the furnish-
ings and art, which Terry de-
scribes as all 1800s themed.
"They're lots of fun," Terry
said. "They're 1 inch to the
foot."
"I've been a miniaturist for
about 25 years. My father
made me a dollhouse when I
was little. I've had a lot of fun.
I've done shows in New York
City, West Chester and Rock-
land County.
"The frames are from 2
inches by an inch-and-a-half
to 3 by 2 inches," she said.
Terry said she loves to
paint scenes from Caspersen
Beach.
"I have a beautiful magni-
fying glass on an arm with flu-
orescent lighting," she said.
Terry has been painting
since she was a child. In that
time period she has been
commissioned to do portraits
of many people, including her


grandchildren.
"I've painted all my life."
she said. "My mother was an
artist. I went to school at
Fordham University."
Terry also likes painting
scenery that captures her
imagination. She's painted all
21 of the mission buildings
along the Pacific Ocean in
California.
She's painted the purple
vales of Montana, rustic cab-
ins in Montague in the
English countryside, thatched
roof homes, the cottages of
Cape Cod and the Rockies
from Telluride, Colo.
"I've been commissioned
to do wedding rooms. too,"
she said.
Terry and Bob moved to
Venice 11 years ago and she
became associated with the
Venice Art Center, where she
works in watercolors.
"I had a very nice thing
happen to me in North Car-
olina. They asked me to dis-
play my art at the gallery in a
very well-known furniture
store in High Point, N.C.," she
said.
Like the famous Carolinian
furniture makers, Bob also
handcrafts the furniture that
is used in the miniature
rooms.
Even the fireplace is elec-
tric and enhanced with cello-
phane to mimic a real fire. For


The painstaking attention to detail can be seen in the grandfather clock and even in the blan-
kets in this scene.


the holidays, the tree is light-
ed with tiny lights. `
"The floors are all inlay
from bird's eye maple and ze-
brawood," she said. "They're
from the very same wood
company in the Bronx. The
family's name is Constantine.
People come from all over the
world to buy wood from
them.
"My husband makes all the
rooms. He does beautiful
work. He makes all the furni-
ture.


Stewart paints these portraits just like the originals, except they are only 1-3 inches in height.


"I've been an artist all my
life," Terry said. "I've done a
lot of scenes for people in
Long Island and Massachu-
setts, too."
Terry worked as a secretary
on Park Avenue in New York
City for C. Tenant & Sons,
which she said is the largest
import and export company
in New York. There she could
see tugboats bringing ships
up the East River.
"We were on the 36th floor
overlooking the East River.
You could see all the ships
coming in," she said.
Bob was a service manager
for J.P Stevens. In his free time
he would build model ships.,


"He made a lobster jack
from Maine and he gave it to
me," Terry said.
He's also made pirate ships
with stunning detail to give to
family and friends.
"It's amazing," she said.
"He's always done ship mod-
els. He built the Red Star. It's
one of the tugboats that's
known all over the world. We
moved up to the country and
who was our neighbor? None
other than the owner of the
Red Star. Bob made him one."
If you'd like to see this
miniature world, go the the
Venice Public Library, 300
Nokomis Ave., until the end of
December.


Bob Stewart crafts the rooms and furniture. He featured a sky-
light in this room, which also features more of Terry Stewart's
tiny paintings.

Puppy chewing problems: Why do


they do it, and how do I stop it?


Rabbit meets St. Bernard


MONICA LEIGHTON
PET COLUMNIST T


Puppies begin to loose
their teeth at 4-6 months of
age. During this time your
puppy will try to chew every-
thing in sight to relieve the
pain and discomfort, yourself
included.
There are a few things you
need to keep in mind during
this time. Most important is
the safety of your pet. Make
sure you unplug all electrical
wires when not in use. I al-
ways reconmnend you carry a
good, chew toy. When your
puppy tries to use your furni-
ture or your hand as its pin


cushion, redirect his attention
with the chew toy. Remember,
the traits puppies learn while
young are almost always car-
ried on to adulthood.
Make sure you do ndt
"play" with your puppy while
he is biting and always use a
direct "no
bite" com-
mand until HAVE A PET

your puppy us at dshulmani

active life .
A puppy
that gets a
lot of attention and exercise
on a daily basis is less likely to
chew as frequency, because
an active puppy becomes a
tired puppy that gets into less
trouble. A good chew toy to
use is a Chilly Bone. This toy
can be found at most pet
stores and works very much
like a child's teething ring. You
wet the chilly bone and
freeze. The cold will help
numnb the teeth and lessen
the pain.


As your puppy grows out of
the teething stages, make sure
you check his teeth and make
sure that they have all indeed
fallen out and that there are
no double teeth.
Retained puppy teeth can
push the adult teeth for-
ward, resulting
in an over- or
Lunderbite and
possibly make
the pet unable
to close his
eate mouth correct-

Helpful hints when traveling with your pet


BY BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL SANCTUARY

If you're taking your pet,
on a long drive, it pays to,
plan ahead. If your pet is not
accustomed to riding in the
car, get him used to it gradu-
ally. Start by sitting in the car
(without going anywhere)
with him for short periods of
time. To make it a more posi-
tive experience, you can give
him a treat or play with him.
Progress to taking your pet
for short jaunts in the car. By
the time you're ready to go
on a long trip, traveling in the
car should be less stressful
for your pet. If your pet con-
tinues to be anxious, try giv-
ing him one of the herbal for-
mulas designed to soothe
and calm. Again, try this
ahead of time, in case your
pet has an adverse reaction.
Sometimes, playing the radio


or an audio book can help re-
lax your pet.
If you'll need to stop
overnight, you should plan
ahead by locating pet-friend-
ly accommodations along
your route. Many motel and
hotel chains are happy to
accommodate pets. If your
pet is not a cat or dog, you
may want to contact the
hotel directly to make sure
they* take your type of pet.
Helpful websites that list pet-
friendly places to stay and
helpful hints for traveling
with pets include petson-
thego.com and petswel-
come.com
If you have a dog, give her
a good long walk before you
start out and make frequent
stops so she can stretch her
legs. Keep her on a leash at
all times when she's outside
the car or hotel room. Even if


she normally responds to
voice commands, she may
spook easily in new environ-
ments. Cats should be kept
in a carrier or crate while
you're driving. At rest stops,
you can let your kitty out (in
the car, of course) to use the
litter box. Or, use a crate large
enough to hold a small cat-
litter tray. Before you leave
on your trip, it's a good idea
to have your dogs and cats
microchipped with your
address and phone number
or, at least, equipped with
up-to-date I.D. tags.
Make sure you take along
a supply of your pet's regular
food, medication, and some
treats now is not the time
to change your pet's diet.
Also, you might want to
bring along your pet's food
and water bowls, bed and
favorite toy to provide com-


fort and familiarity for your
pet during your stay in for-
eign accommodations.
Wherever you stay with
your pet, be courteous., Res-
pect the rules of the establish-
ment many places don't
want you to leave your pet
unattended in the room, for
instance. Bring along poop
scoop bags to pick up after
your dog. If you are traveling
during inclement weather,
pack a towel to wipe muddy
paws.
Traveling by air
If you'll be traveling by air-
plane, you should contact the
airline well in advance of
your trip to find out whether
there is room for your pet on
the flight, how much it will
cost, and what's required in
terms of documentation
(such as current health and


vaccination certificates). Ev-
ery airline establishes its own
policies regarding pets.
There are several options
for how your pet can fly: as
carry-on baggage, as checked
luggage, or as cargo. Flying as
carry-on baggage is the most
comfortable for the pet, but
this mode of travel is restrict-
ed to smaller animals, since
the animal must travel in a
carrier that fits under the seat.
Cargo shipping can be a
safer option than checking
your pet as luggage, since pro-
fessional shippers have expe-
rience in providing an envi-
ronment suitable for special-
ized cargo like live animals.
Some passenger airlines offer
cargo shipping, so check with
the airline. For more details
on having your pet travel by
air, visit healthypet.com/
Library/petcare-29.html.


Vacationing
with your dog
If you haven't taken a vaca-
tion with your dog, give it
some thought. It can be great
fun to have your dog along
on your adventure, and many
hotel chains accept dogs
these days. To find dog-
friendly lodging, visit, a web-
site that also lists dog-friend-
ly restaurants, parks, beaches
and other attractions. For
vacation rentals, such as cab-
ins, condos and B&Bs, visit
petfriendlytravel.com.
If you want to take it a
step further, look into dog
camps, the ultimate vaca-
tion for you and your dog.
They provide games, train-
ing opportunities, and lots
of other dogs to interact
with: For a list of dog camps,

"This certification and
training allows me to assess a
participant's balance and
mobility level," stated Whittle,
"then work more specifically
with that individual's needs.
This program will fit well with
the Balance M movement classes
we already offer to the public."
Falls Prevention classes
began locally in response to a
pressing need in the commu-
nity to reduce the number of


falls that residents age 65 and
older experience. Classes at
the Senior Friendship Centers
are free and open to the pub-
lic. See the current publication
of SFC's PRIME TIMES for
locations and times or call
556-3223 for more informa-
tion. Senior Friendship Cen-
ters' Falls Prevention Initiative
is funded in part through a
grant from the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County

You may choose to lightly
sponge on the paint of your
choice or spray paint around
the object. Objects can then
be repositioned on the paper,
in some cases, overlapping
the original silhouettes and
sponged lightly around again.
You may choose to use the
same color or add a different
color. Allow to dry before
repositioning.
If you spray paint, remem-
ber to wear plastic gloves and
face mask and work only in
an open area with adequate
ventilation. Be sure to spray
lightly around the shapes to
create silhouettes, holding
the objects down flat to the
paper where necessary.
The painted plant material
can then be used as high-

or a white shiny mold.
Directions
Soak gourds in a shallow
tub of water with a few drops
of dish detergent. .
They float so you need to
turn them over or weigh them
down with a stone or brick.
Rub firmly with a pot
scrubber or fine steel wool
until all molds are removed.
Remaining molds will cause,

necessary.

Air dry completely, at
least 24 hours. Cake rack is
best as newspaper ink will
rub off onto the gourds. A
mottled appearance is- nor-
mal.
Gourds can be sprayed with a
sealer (exterior or interior
use) or left natural.
Apply one coat of clear or
white gesso, depending on
which look you want, to cover
the spot and even out the
complexion of the gourd.
For the natural
bromni/gold colored gourds,
apply one coat of a mixture of
1/3, clear gesso to 2/3 gold
paint over the clear gesso
above.
Another look is to apply
one coat ,of white or ivory
acrylic craft paint over your
first coat of white gesso. Let
dry. Then sponge gold paint
over that.
Yet another variation is to,
roll or sprinkle the white- or
ivory-painted gourd above

sponge with gold over that.
Painting tips
Use sealer, like gesso or Kiltz
to keep the mold spots from
bleeding through.
Lightly sand, reseal and
repaint when changing col-
ors, if needed
Then latex or acrylic
paints for a washed look.
Use enamel, flat,semi or
gloss paint. Gourds can by
painted using multiple coats
of spray paint or thin coats of
any of the above paints.
Brushes, foam brushes,
cloths and sponges work well.
Using a hair dryer can help
speed the drying time
between coats of paint using
care not to overheat the
gourds or burn fingers. Finish
with a coat of matte, satin or
gloss clear sealer.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING








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

Women's Resource Center scholarships and scholarship


advocacy help women returning to school


BY LESLIE YARD
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN


Many of you are aware of
the great scholarship oppor-
tunities available through the
High Schools for young peo-
ple going on to college.
However, those same oppor-
tunities are not as readily
available to nontradition stu-
dents, such as the mothers of
those high schoolers. Many
working mothers would like
to better their career or
employment possibilities.
Scholarships from organiza-


tions helping "nontraditional
women students" can help
these women get the educa-
tion they need
The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County
has a scholarship program for
nontraditional women re-
turning to school. Last year
the organization was able to
provide $1000 scholarships to
43 women to use for voca-
tional and academic training.
This $43,000 in scholarship
assistance was made possible
by generous donors to the
WRCSC scholarship fund.'


Applicant eligibility require-
ments are: 21 years of age;
GED or high school diploma
and acceptance into program
of study; and residency in
Sarasota County.
Also, The Women's Re-
source Center advocates for
many scholarships for other
organizations. They provide
information and help with
application qualifications for
the American Association of
UniversityWomen, the Amer-
ican Business Women's Asso-
ciation, local Business and
Professional Women's Organ-


izations and the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice scholarships for wom-
en in Charlotte and Sarasota
Counties. They also provide
application information
about the Community Foun-
dation of Sarasota County
scholarships for non-tradi-
tional women and first time
college women, as well as a
variety of other organizations,
such as PE.O.s, who wish to
help women returning to
school to better their employ-
ment opportunities.
Scholarship workshops are


available in January and
February to help women
identify scholarships that are,
appropriate for their educa-
tional pursuits. Workshops
will include information
about scholarship qualifica-
tions, scholarship applica-
tions and a representative
from University of South Flor-
ida to discuss Federal Finan-
cial Aid forms, guidelines and
tips. There will be workshops
at: Englewood United Meth-
odist Church, 3-5 p.m., Thurs-
day, Feb. 9; Women's Resource
Center, 806 Pipebrook Plaza


in Venice, 6-8 p.m., Tuesday,
Feb. 7;.North Port Health and
Family Service Center, 6950
PanAmerican, 3-5 p.m., Wed.,

Application forms must be
picked up in person. Call The
Women's Resource Center in
Venice at 485-9724 to register
for one of these workshops
and for additional informa-
tion.

Center ofSarasota County is

Our family's



Christmas




miracle


days my husband had to
carry Jean, our baby daughter,
downstairs and walk her for
45 minutes to get her to sleep.
But we must have had
some kind of little Christmas
tree because for the 20 years.
we had together, we always
made a big deal out of Christ-
mas.
But this particular year the
trouble was -my husband's
watch was at the jewelers to
be fixed and it was going to
cost $10 and we had no, idea
where we were going.to find
that $10. He had to take the
bus to work and he really
needed a watch. It might not
sound like a big deal to you,
but it was to us.
At that time we attended
the Catholic church, St. Paul's
Cathedral, which was only a
block away. We did not
believe in taking small chil-
dren to church so we attend-
ed Mass one at a time. About
a week or two before Christ-
mas my husband dreamt that
he found a $10 bill in a snow-
drift on his way to St. Paul's.
And you know what? He real-
ly did find a $10 bill in a snow-
drift on his way to Mass.
. Now that may not sound
like a big miracle to you, but it
surely was to us.
I wish each of my loyal
readers an enriched and hap-
py Christmas. This column is
just about a year old in the
.Venice Gondolier Sunmand
eight months in the Big Rap-
ids Pioneer. You have no idea
how much your letters and
phone calls have meant to
me, a 92-year-old lady: They
are indeed a miracle.
Virginia Deupree, a 92-
year-old nearly deaf and
blind resident of Harbor
Chase of Venice, was formerly
the city editor for the Pioneer
in Big Rapids, Mich. She
writes an occasional column
for this page.


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST


It was about 1943, some-
time during the war years. We
were fortunate to find a third-
floor bedroom apartment in
Washington, D.C. Our daugh-
ter, Jean, was about I and our
son, Jim, a little older than 2.
With Jim in a crib in our bed-
room and Jean in a crib in the
living room, I do not remem-
ber how I managed to get anr
infant and a toddler and gro-
ceries up three flights of
stairs, but I did. I often left the
baby carriage in the down-
stairs hall. My husband had a
pretty good job as a public
relations director at a presti-
gious hotel. But there was
never enough money to make
'ends meet. I remember want-
ing to buy a new dish rag
because mine was in shreds.
They cost only a nickel but
even that I felt I couldn't
afford. But heck, most of our
friends were in the same boat.
SIn my. daughter's photo
album is copy' of the hospi-
tal bill where she was bom.
That's back when they
thought you had to stay for 10
days, The bill for 10 days,
including the delivery room,
was $400. None of us had
insurance back then.
Ours was the top floor of
the apartment house and
there was no insulation or air
conditioning. And you, who
know Washington know how
miserable it can be in the
summertime. On the worst

Columnist visits the land of her grandparents


BY FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Editor's note: In Part I, which.
appeared on these pages a week
ago, Venice Gondolier Sun Social
Columnist Fran Valencic wrote
about her flight to Poland, the first
glorious sights in the country of
her grandparents birth and the
painful thoughts conjured up by
her visit to Auschwitz
Concentration Camp.
Our bus continued to
Krakow, where we would stay
-at the SAS Radisson on ul.
Straszawskiego, just a block
from Old Town and Market
Square.
After breakfast, Sophie, our
local guide, took us past the
Wisla River and a tour of the
old Jewish neighborhood
with its small streets and
buildings. As some of the
buildings are being rebuilt
and restored, planners are
dealing with height restric-
tions. It has become a major
problem. Dana and I just
smiled, knowing that in
Venice we have the same
issues.
Ahead was a pretty win-
dow with a bouquet of flow-'
ers. Sophie told us it was the
famous window where Pope
John Paul II often stood and
visited with locals. Next was
,the Wawel Castle and the
coronation "cathedral. Our
walk to the castle was up a
slanted path next to a wall
that included large stones
with the names of famous
Poles. I was pleased to find
one stone that had the name
Stanislaw Wojciechowski on
it. That was my father's name.
Sophie told us Wojciechowski
was a famous Polish politi-
cian who helped restore the
city and that's why he was
honored with a skone.
"We are pleased to haye
the daughter of such a
famous important Polish
politician in our group," Anna

famous Sukiennice, which was rebuilt in the 1550s.


Some worked the flowers.
They were commissioned
based on their specialty.
Along with all the beautiful
furniture we even saw folding
chairs. I had a moment of
pride thinking my country-
men had folding chairs hun-
dreds of years ago.
At the cathedral we were
awe-struck by the Baroque
high altar and choir stalls.
Along the wall were several
confessionals, something we
no longer see in American
Catholic churches. Also there
were various chapels such as
the Holy Cross Chapel, which
is the burial chamber of King
Kazimierz IV lagiello. The rest
of the group walked up the
Sigismund Tower.; I was
pleased to light 15 small can-
dles for my friends and family
for whom I had promised to
do something special in
Poland. We went down 'to the
crypts that house the remains
of various Polish kings and
national heroes. We saw a
plaque from the United States
honoring Taddeusz
Kosciuszko and thanking him
for his service to our country.
SinqpD.ana and 1 are.of Polish
descent, it touched oum hearts
to feel the connection
between Poland and the
United States..

Mountains shows the craftsmanship of the local wood cutters.


teased as we continued on
our way.
Inside the castle we
learned about the nearly 300
tapestries hanging through-
out the building. They were
saved from destruction by
being hidden in Canada.
Sophie told us it took the
weavers and sewers about a
year to create 1 square meter
of a tapestry. The workers
were specialists. Some sewed
faces. Some sewed hands.

fl^


After a brisk walk through
one of the city parks, we
arrived at St. Mary's Church
just in time to hear the
famous Trumpeter of Krakow
who plays the hejnal melody
every hour on the hour. The
building was begun in 1355
and completed 50 years later.
The church is a collection of
magnificent carvings, paint-
ings and statues. It would take
a week to see and study it all.

honey) at the Gazdowo Kuznia in Zakopane, Poland.


Jama Michalika Cafe, we
enjoyed a piece of delicious
crepm cake said to be Pope
John Paul Il's favorite.
The rest of.the day was
free. Dana and I visited the
history museum where we
saw some of die creches dis-
played that are winners of the
National Competition held
each year at Christmas.
We shopped at the famous
Sukiennice, which was rebuilt


hike and recently when she
was hiking alone came across
a black bear. Luckily he was
notinterested in her.
The weather cooled down
a bit and the sun went behind
the clouds so it was pleasant
for shopping in town and
enjoying the locals and the
horse and buggy rides. I pur-
chased some amber and
beads. Dana and I bought
huge bags of Polish candy for
3 zloty, which is $1.
At Gazdowo Kuiznia, an
outdoor cafe on the famous
ul. Krupowki, we drank Piwo
z mlodym, warm beer with
.honey.
"This is my new favorite
drink," Dana told me. "I won-
der ifI can get it in Atlanta?"
: I had a bowl of Zurek, a
sour bread soup that I loved
and ordered it whenever I
could.
On our way to the hotelwe
stopped at Our Lady of
Fatima Church. This new
building was built by the peo-
ple after Pope John Paul II
was shot. The locals prayed
for his life and when it was


The happy Gorale perform nightly at the Karczma Czacci Jar in
Zakopane, Poland. This group traveled to Italy to perform for


in the 1550s. It is a cloth hall
filled with vendors selling
"bursztyn" (Polish amber),
lace, creche's, books and all
kinds of Polish trinkets.
Dana visited one of the
many Inteinet cafe's while I
shopped and bought some
great Polish shoes. We
enjoyed an early dinner and
SPolish beer at one of the side-
walk cafes. My mushroom
pizza was delicious. We peo-
ple watched and enjoyed
some of the local music.
Our walk back to the hotel
took us past many small
shops and an interesting
book store. We visited antique
stores. At the hotel Dana ate
some French onion soup
while I had.Polish crepes.
At 9 a.m. the next morning
our group was on the bus
headed for the most popular
vacation spot' in Poland,
Zakopane, which is located in
the Tatra Mountains. The
drive took us past quaint vil-
lages with shepherds tending
their sheep, men plowing
their fields using a horse and
plow, people chopping wood
and harvesting pumpkins
and majestic views. Everyone
was getting ready for the win-
ter.
Driving through the beau-
tiful mountains we stopped at
a small wooden church with a
clear stream running next to
it. We all marveled at how
clean the water was and that
we could see all the way to the
bottom.
When we arrived at
Zakopane, it reminded me of
a Polish version of Venice.
There were stores, vendors
and flowers everywhere.
Anna and I sang some moun-
tain songs I remembered
from childhood. We sampled
some fresh and smoked goat
cheese on our walk, boarded
a ski lift and went to the top of
the mountain to view the
beauty below. We realized the
great stamina Polish people
possess. There were many
hikers along the way and
groups ofyoung Polish school
children hiking their way up
the mountain. Many looked
like first- and second-graders.
Anna told us her mother, who
is near 70 years old, likes to'


spared, they built the church.
En route to our hotel, the
Mazurkas, we were in awe of
this gorgeous country.
That evening we had din-
ner at Karczma Czarci Jara, a
highlander's cottage, and lis-
tened to entertainment by
the local "Gorale." Their
music was fun and festive
with violins but no accor-
dions, They rang .bells, blew
whistles and generally had a
ball. Our meal was served in a
huge trough and consisted of
about six different sausages,
potatoes, pierdgi, salad and
kaszanka, which, is Polish
blood sausage, one of my
favorites. Dessert was'a huge
bowl of three scoops of ice
cream covered with whipped
cream, chocolate sprinkles
and a cherry. Life just couldn't
get any better.
Zakopane is where Pope
John Paul II liked to ski and
hike. The "Gorale" we heard
traveled to Rome when the
pope was ill to cheer him up
and lift his spirits.
Zakopane must be magnif-
icent when covered with
snow.
The next morning we
headed for Wieliczka Salt
Mine. A small lift took us
down the first three levels of
the mine in total darkness.
Agnieska, our guide at the
mines, led us through the
underground chapels, cham-
bers, tunnels and even to an
alcove where a short Chopin
concert was presented.
One of the most beautiful
sights at the mine is the
Blessed Kinga's Chapel at the
bottom level. It was complet-
ed in the early part of the 19th
century. The mines include a
banquet hall where our
guide's high school senior
prom was held.
The 2.5-mile underground
walk is certainly not for the
feint of heart. Luckily there is
lift to take you up.
After exiting the mine, we
enjoyed pierogi and dessert at
a local restaurant, had a
chance to purchase some salt
products and then boarded
the bus for the long ride back
to Warsaw. The sights were
nice. Traveling from the
mountains to the villages


Tetra National Park.

gave us a good overview of
Poland. Seeing villagers tend
their land made us realize the
life our grandparents experi-
enced. It was common to see
a small house neai the road.
Sometimes- it was old.
Sometimes it was new. Old or
new, the houses always had
lace curtains in the windows.
In front of the house it was
common to see a cow tied up
and chickens in the back.
Some of the houses looked
like they had 15 or 20 colorful
dog houses in front of them.
These were bee hives. '
,Ve made several comfort
stops along the way and at
one of them 1I couldn't resist
buying bright pink toilet
paper that feels like the paper
towels we get in chain store
bathrooms.
While on the long drive
Anna answered all our ques-
tions and told us about Polish
holiday traditions. Most were
exactly' as we practice them.
She gave us an interesting talk.
about Polish, 'vodka,. ,We
learned the Polish Bison
Vodka includes a piece of
grass in it from the fields
where the bison graze.
Several of us were keeping
journals so we got used to the
commentaries we called,
"Golden words from Anna."
I We arrived in Warsaw late
for our last dinner together at
the Best Western Hotel
Mazurkas on ul. Poznanska.
We said our good byes to
Anna, which was sad. She had


saying the same thing.
On the flight back to
America, Dana asked where
all the foolish Polish jokes
came from? Why were Polish
people the butt of so many
jokes and bad feelings here?
We couldn't figure it out.
We came back kriowing we
would return. Both of us
loved learning who we are
and what a lovely group of
people share our heritage.
Polish people we met were all
kind, charming, intelligent,
fun and helpful. They know
the, history of their country.
The young people are gor-
geous and all of them speak
several languages, including
English.
Polish people are, sur-
vivors. They survived inva-
sions and bombings and
rebuilt. Poland today is a
work in progress.
We also discovered Polish
women are bossy, take charge
types and self-confident. This
now is our excuse for our per-
sonalities. From now on we
will just say, "It is in our
genes."
I must return to Poland
and explore more places. I am
more grateful than ever to my
granchnodier for giving me
the wonderful gift of the,
Polish language. I am espe-
cially grateful that after she
came to America she loved
this country with a passion
but she also loved her Poland
and kept the traditions and
passed them on to me.

"Hanukkah Schmanukkah' takes an old story and gives it new life


BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUEST COLUMNIST


One of the best things
about getting together with
family this time of year is the
remembering.
One person starts a family
story, and soon everybody's
laughing. You recall how
small the children looked last,
year and you marvel at how
they've grown. Every tradi-
tion, it seems, has a memory
attached.
What if, over time, you for-
got all the important things?
In the new children's book
"Hanukkah, Schmanukkah!"
by Esme Raji Codell. illustrat-
ed by LeUyen Pham. Scrooge-
macher needs to remember
fast
It was the night before
Hanukkah and old Scrooge-
macher was being a shtunk,
ranting and yelling and
threatening everyone. When
he instructed his foreman to
wti Vhe. clock batckkO.m nl.--.
utet, Scroogemacher's neph-
ew, Moshe, intervened. Let
the workers go home at a de-
cent hour, he begged,
Scroogemacher. Some of
them have children. It's Han-
ukkah, after all.,
Hanukkah. Schmanukkah,
said Scroogemacher.


That night, as Scrooge-
macher tried to sleep, he had
a funny feeling that didn't go
away, even with seltzer. As he
sat up in bed, he was sur-
prised to see, a small rabbi
standing there in his room,
wearing a silver tallis. What
kind of magic is this, Scrooge-
macher wondered. It was no
magic. It was the Rabbi of
Hanukkah Past, who quickly
whisked Scroogemacher back
in time to see firsthand -
how Hanukkah began.
Diving beneath an over-
turned table, Scroogemacher
watched as the Maccabees

battled soldiers with swords
and arrows. Scroogemacher
was astonished, but before he
could close his mouth and
catch his breath, the Rabbi of
Hanukkah Past disappeared
and Scroogemacher was in
the presence of a tall, thin
Rabbi. *
It was the Rabbi of Han-
ukkah Present, and he took
Scroogemacher to a tene-
ment. There, they watched as
Moshe brought a modest
Hanukkah feast to a poor Jew-
ish family and their boarders.
When the Rabbi of Hanukkah

began to remember his long,
difficult journey to the New
World, and the love he lost.
When the light around him
grew brighter, Scroogemach-
er was sudderily in the pres-
ence of a woman with curly
hair. She was the Rabbi of
Hanukkah Future. Imagine! A
woman rabbi, cried Scrooge-
macher. But that wasn't his
last surprise. The Rabbi of
Hanukkah Future showed
Scroogemacher that, even
though times change, the tra-
ditions of Hanukkah are al-
ways remembered.

A "REALITY CHECK"
7 There is only one person who can save your teeth you! A consistent
J daily home hygiene program of brushing, flossing, rinsing is required.
i Are you reluctant to do this? Then allow us to make a friendly
suggestion. Pay a visit to your neighborhood supermarket or
pharmacy. Purpose? Oh, just a simple kind of "Reality" check.
First, look over the shelf space devoted to tooth bushes, toothpaste,
dental floss, and rinses in the oral care section. Then compare the
amount of shelf space devoted to denture products. Products for
people who did not take care of their teeth and gums. Products such
as denture cleaners, denture adhesives, etc.
In most retail outlets, the denture products have a surprising amount
of shelf space about one-third the amount of space devoted to
products which people with teeth use. What does this tell you? .
r Remember, most denture wearers have one thing in common. They did
not effectively control plaque on their natural teeth.

Seasons" at the Venice United Church of Christ.


Rev. Lori Rivera lighting Advent candles


Members of a number of
faith traditions, including
Christians and Jews, gathered
Dec. 13 at the Venice United
Church of Christ for a
"Celebration of the Season."
In its second annual season-
al celebration, the Venice
Interfaith Community Asso-
ciation brought together four
religious leaders who told of
the significance and tradi-
tions of religious holidays at
the 'end of each year. Rev.
Polly Leland-Mayer of the
Unitarian Universalist Con-
gregation of Venice started
the program with an inspir-
ing description of the origins
of many of today's symbols
of Christmas. She recounted
solstice traditions from thou-
sands of years before the
origin of today's monotheis-
tic religions. Rabbi Ann
White of the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Venice lit
the eight candles of Hanuk-
kah and recited ancient
Jewish blessings of the sea-
son.
Rev. Lori Rivera of Sun-
Coast Cathedral MCC lit the
four Advent candles and
spoke of the Christian tradi-
tions during the four weeks


before Christmas. Father
Chris Gray of St. Mark's
Episcopal Church celebrated
the birth of Jesus and spoke
of the spirit of love and for-
giveness that is associated
with Christmas.
The moving presenta-
tions were interspersed with
Christmas carols, an Advent
song and "0 Hanukkah."
The group left the church
with the echo 'of "Let There
be Peace on Earth" ringing
in their ears and an under-
standing that there is much
they can agree on even
though their faith traditions
vary, especially the desire for
peace on earth and the rec-
ognition that "neighbors all
are we." It was a spirited
crowd that moved into the
reception hall for Christmas
cookies.
The Venice Interfaith
Community Association
meets monthly and is open
to all. Its mission is to pro-
mote the development of a
culture that reflects the love,
understanding and support
of and between all communi-
ty members as taught by all
of the faith traditions repre-
sented in our society.
